be on a better show

You know what’s great? How Cooper wasn’t that important to me in s1 and how much that has changed. It’s not that I disliked him, but he was definitely on the periphery. I felt bad when he was garroted because of Tom and definitely didn’t want him to die but still he was just there on the edges. Then s2 comes along with all its issues and suddenly Director Cooper became “my Coop” from limping back into the post office when all he wanted to do was stay home to his struggle with his illness to throwing those pills in Connolly’s face. My Coop!

And he is such an honorable man, but also isn’t afraid to step outside the law when it’s warranted. Telling Liz to run after she shot Connolly for example. He could have arrested her right there but he knew the Cabal would kill her and he let her go risking his own arrest and career. He was offered early retirement but chose that tiny cubicle just to stay in the game and help where he could.

And those times Red and Coop showed their grudging respect for one another were really wonderful. How that respect built over time and didn’t ignore their obvious differences but it grew despite the odds. These two old war dogs that have seen too many battles and meet occasionally when they find common ground. Truly amazing and I imagine something that sort of happened during the course of the series without a real plan.

I’ll never forget Red nudging (or pushing) Coop back into the PO after he was almost killed. Or Coop’s kindness to Red when he saw him that first time after Lizzy’s death. Their break up scene in 3.23 when Red told Coop his plan to kill Kirk. There was no deception because Red respected him enough to tell him Before the act. It was “Raymond” and “Harold” that met that day with gratitude for the work that had been done. It was also Director Cooper that allowed Red to walk out of his office after confessing to his premeditated plan to avenge Elizabeth’s death and protect Agnes. That’s my Coop!

And I cannot for the life of me figure out why over 3 seasons of building this relationship and this character should be destroyed to further this Red is the root of all evil mindset. We’ve already had to endure Cooper’s OOC Tom amnesia but apparently that isn’t enough. To have Red come to his office in the hopes of repairing the damage, to show kindness regarding his daughter and see Coop meet that with hostility that is completely out of proportion to what is happening on the show is honestly a heartbreaker. My Coop is unrecognizable and has been since 3b. I miss that guy and I honestly don’t understand why tptb have taken him away. What was once great is now just really sad.

So people think Rowan and Rhysand are abusive - they’re not. Here’s some reasons why. I’ve highlighted some stuff in the above passages to show how in both cases (although their actions aren’t morally correct but are justified) they are not abusers.

Highlight 1
> Rowan isn’t highly suspicious or jealous, he has excellent self control, he doesn’t show signs of mood swings and as we know from the introduction of the character Cairn, he doesn’t approve of unnecessary and obtuse violence
> Rhysand may show signs of jealousy and suspicion but we know that he has a lot of self control and doesn’t let these feelings get the better of him. Also he doesn’t show signs of mood swings either and we know from ACOTAR that he doesn’t like to kill people in a painful way or put them through unnecessary suffering

Highlight 2
> in both cases, neither Feyre nor Celaena/Aelin were strangers nor were they intimate female partners

Highlight 3
> burger Rhys not Rowan have personality disorders

Highlight 4
> Rowan and Rhysand are very REMORSEFUL over their actions and regret what they did - this isn’t what an abuser would do

Highlight 5
> Rowan and Rhysand don’t need to control Celaena or Feyre or assert power over either of them because both these girls know who they are and the power they hold - they’re not stupid!

Highlight 6
> neither Rowan nor Rhys show signs of low self esteem, they don’t live in poverty, they are neither resentful towards women nor men, and they don’t have personality disorders.
> they may have genetic and sociocultural influences but this is because they are Fae (MYTHICAL CREATURES GUYS THAT CAN’T BE APPLIED TO REAL LIFE SITUATIONS) and potentially Rhys has unresolved childhood conflicts but that is more towards men and specifically Tamlin.

Highlight 7
> Rowan is training Celaena so that she may have control over her power, this is rather backwards because then Rowan wouldn’t be able to have so much control over her as Celaena would be able to fight back more easily. Also he doesn’t try and control Celaena, sure he brings her back to the fortress but she was willing to go because HER LIFE WAS IN DANGER AND HE WAS PROTECTING HER.
> Rhys also trains Feyre so she might have control over her powers (again BACKWARDS) and gives her plenty of freedom and choice in ACOMAF.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ABUSE IS DEFINED BY A PSYCHOLOGICAL DIFFERENCE IN THE ABUSER’S MIND - MAINLY THE UNNECESSARY NEED TO PROMOTE THEIR DOMINANCE POWER AND CONTROL. ALSO AN ABUSER WOULDN’T SUDDENLY CHANGE THEIR MIND AND ABUSE SOMEONE THEN TRY AND PROMOTE EQUALITY WITH THEM OR HELP THEM OR TRY AND SAVE THE WORLD WITH THEM! IT WOULD TAKE YEARS FOR THEM TO GET LUT OF THIS PSYCHOLOGICAL BEHAVIOUR - NOT MONTHS. IN NO WAY DO I APPROVE OF WHAT RHYS OR ROWAN DID BUT IT IS MORALLY WRONG NOT ABUSE!

Things that should happen in future episodes of Steven Universe:

• Steven being upset about something but not having to take it back because everything he said and is upset about is right.

• Another Bismuth episode, or possible redemption arc at least. Possibly one where Steven lets her out of the bubble and asks her for information that no one else will give him(the war, Rose shattering a diamond, etc). As well as forgiving her for the thing about shattering gems, and apologizing for not talking with her instead of both of them jumping the gun in the first place.

• Old color palettes. The colors now are becoming very bright, I do understand it’s a kids show and kids love bright colors but I liked the old palettes because they were softer and nicer to look at(my opinion).

• Peridot having some of her old personality back. She seems more like an out of control toddler than a cluster controlling/head of a mission gem anymore. I feel as though she used to be smart, tactical, a bit snarky. I wish they’d kept that.

• Lapis and Peridot, their development. I want answers to questions. (When did they become friends? How did Lapis learn to forgive her? How is Lapis’ interaction with the other gems now? Can she forgive them too?)

• Lapis’ personality. I feel as though Lapis has gone from kind of dismissive and a bit cold-shouldered to straight up unforgiving. She didn’t remember Connie and kind of brushes off almost drowning her. That’s a bit concerning.

• A Garnet episode. Just more about her. Her feelings about all of this. Even perspectives from Ruby and Sapphire separately is welcome(also other things like why does she love being a fusion so much? What did she do during the war? How did she get along with Pearl, Rose, and Amethyst when they all separately first met each other?).

• Maybe a Pearl episode like Garnet’s listed above?

• How the people of Beach City first reacted when the gems first went there. How the different generations felt about having others from another world inhabit it and help them.

• What happened when Rose was first created? What do other rose quartz look like?

• A Jasper redemption or at least fix her please? Somehow?

• What happened to the diamond in the lighthouse?

Okay I think I’m done now. Anything I missed put it in the replies I guess. I’m really looking forward to this show’s progression!

This is Pistachio, though we usually call him Big Beef because he has very strong arms. He was embarrassed about his unusual mouth, but when he saw the beautiful smile of Tiny he felt better about himself, so I showed him this picture of how cute it makes him look when he’s sleeping! Now he is proud of his little blep space and wants to thank Tiny for sharing his beautiful smile. His brother, Hiccup (Little Beef), has three strong legs, and is also a fan of Tiny! My Beefs are sometimes naughty like tiny, but do not have wet marshmallow jaws, so I have to make sure my nail polish doesn’t look like beetles or berries…

Hello Pistachio (Big Beef)! 😀🐸😀

Tiny thinks you are beautiful everywhere! 😊 He likes your lovely long black toenails and your fashionable beard spikes!

Tiny thinks your mouth is just perfect and he sends you 237 big Tiny kissies! 🐸😊🐸

guys I need to know this for sure

i'm kinda liking that they stopped hypocritically hyping us with malec, it's sunday and it's silence from todd and writer of ep 8 on social media, they are so used to bait us with malec that without it they don't know what to do and how to get attention (which is f- sad for the show which has 7 awesome main characters)

I would normally agree to this, Anon. But as I said, right now I am just…whatever.

I think they really got how much they fucked up. (Explaining things that should be shown in the ep to the fandom on twitter…what the actual fuck??? smh) Of course we all know that “Shadowhunters” is not only Malec. Besides (correct me if I am wrong here) I haven’t read/heard a single complain about the “lack” of Malec this season. Because the storytelling and the way this couple had been written felt real and honest. And it all made sense. The fandom may have complained about the marketing team giving away all the Malec scenes, but other than that, all was good.

But when the showrunner claims an episode “Malec Mania” (he did that, not the marketing people over at Freeform!) and now acts all surprised that the fandom is pissed… like….seriously??? And it’s not even about the lack of Malec in that certain episode but the way their scenes were edited and/or written. Why does nobody of them get what the real and big problem is? Siiiiigh.

Then again, apparently including all 7 main characters into your plot seems to be a huge issue this season. Where is the oh so big and promised plot for Luke? And what is the purpose of Simon this season? All his scenes don’t feel very integrated at all to me! Not to mention some other issues that happened but that don’t make me love the show less.

BTS react to their S/O starving themselves

Request: Bts reaction to their s/o starving themselves because they think they are fat?

NOTE: to all of those out there, to those who struggle with this in real life, to those who contemplate resorting to this as a solution, to those who need a light at the end of the tunnel, this is it. we are your lighthouse to show you that there is a better result, and this is not the best solution. love yourself, it’s hard but so worth it. coming from two people who once struggled with this in high school, both Admin M and I know the struggle and are here to support you. If any of you ever need to talk, we are here for you and our ask box and messages are always open.

Seokjin: He’d sit you down and have you explain to him why you starve yourself. Once you tell him that you think you’re fat, he’d start crying. He’d tell you that you were absolutely beautiful and would try to get you to eat for him. He’d sit in front of you and watch you eat and would convince you that you were beautiful.

Yoongi: He’d try his hardest not to get angry. He’d hold you close as you cry because he knows how hard it is to confess to something like that. He’d tell you that he thought you were beautiful and he’d ask you to eat for him. If you refused he’d make you sit there until you ate something, and would make sure you didn’t throw it up as soon as you swallowed.

Hoseok: He’d cry and hold you. He’d tell you a million times how much he thought you were beautiful and would list all the things he thought were beautiful about you.

Namjoon: He’d sit and wait for you to vent out your feelings about why you think you’re fat. He’d understand why you were doing it, but would try his best to convince you to see someone to help you. He’d also try to get you to eat something, even if it’s something small.

Jimin: He’d be outraged and confused as to why you would think that you were fat. He’d end up crying and holding you telling you to take better care of yourself because seeing you hurting hurts him.

Originally posted by jiminings

Taehyung: He’d hold you while you cry and explain why you starve yourself. He’d kiss your temple and try to get you to see somone to help you. He’d wait for you to agree, and would hold you all night telling you how beautiful he thought you were.

*tried to find a decent one, but this is cute and made me smile, so hopefully y’all smile too*

Originally posted by jiminsjagii

Jungkook: He’d try to control his anger, because he knows being angry won’t help. He’d let you explain how you thought you were fat and that’s when he’d lose it. He wouldn’t yell at you, but he’d tell you that you shouldn’t think that way about yourself. He’d hug you and kiss you passionately and show you how much he thinks you’re beautiful.

Most seem to think S/MM I'm curious what you think of these 2 things. P1-Friends/costars: Cast members have really said too much. Sam blow up dolls, SC giving collective gifts to crew. Every single person in the show mentions them as a team. People they know better, like RD tweets about Sam treating Cait like a Queen on her bday which is arguably more a friend than costar. Friendships connect the two people together. S/MM hardly communicate online let alone mutuals commenting on their closeness.

P2-Charities. Intermingling in damn near every org. Cait’s scarf to Cahonas, WCC liking shippery things. The called Sam out this last campaign to participate. They didn’t ask all her OL costars to help-just 1. MPC even more so considering it’s Sam’s baby. I saw spec MM might work/help him but has she ever openly promoted it? If so not enough to be a known voice. Odd for a longtime gf. One can argue SC behavior is to push OL/JC. But this? How do you explain this away? I don’t think you can.


Everything you mentioned about Sam and Cait and their lives intertwining is why I can’t seem to leave the ship and why I’m SO CONFUSED. None of it is what happens if two people are just co-workers or best friends. None.

I have a Headcannon that Prince is actually kinda self conscious of his body, but Anxiety is the only one that knows, so he likes to just randomly complement his appearance all the time

Prince loves his body and loves to help others love their body, but sometimes he just wishes he was a little different. Maybe a bit thinner, maybe has a bit more muscle-

Anxiety always tries to help him feel better- has Prince do a fashion show and model all of his new dresses and swimwear and all his clothes in general. Or he compliments him until Prince is swooning and laughing

Anxiety wouldn’t stand for Prince doubting his own beauty, especially not when Anxiety knows that every inch if Prince is perfect

Just Friends theory-ish

So i was rewatching the scene from “Friendenemies” when Tom and Marco sing “Too Little Too Late” by Love Sentence, and i got to thinking, what if Star or Marco mess up during the Love Sentence concert (which can cause the strained friendship mentioned in “Starcrushed”) and one of them starts singing “Too Little Too Late” to the other P.S Tom better show up in this episode HE LOVES LOVE SENTENCE TOO

Honestly, Liam still responding to the group chat on Twitter just shows he is a better person than those Liam stans deserve. You know why? Because you’re not entitled to an explanation why he block you especially if in the first place, you are intentionally shit talking him for attention. You all seem to forget: Liam and you are not friends. You are complete stranger to him. The fannish language and inside joke you’re using to converse to him will be lost on him. It’s not his responsibility to learn fandom language. The concept of fourth wall has been lost on fans since social media rises exponentially; but the concept exist because your fandom experience will differ greatly from Liam who is not part of fandom but the object of fandom itself. Do any of you understand that? That’s not a difficult concept to grasp. You are outside looking in. He is living the fandom experience you’re leveraging against him.

How dare you think you’re a better fan than the rest of people because you believe you honestly care about him which means you have every right to shit talk him in the guise of “constructive criticism”. That’s not how it works. A lesser person would block you and move on. But the fact that he still found time to listen to you and reason to you? Grow up and get a grip of yourself. You shouldn’t be proud of what you did to get the block.

I haven't watched Supergirl past like the 2nd episode of season 1... but gosh darn it if Supercorp doesn't make me melt and giggle at the cuteness. So I'm gonna ask if the show gets better further in?

It’s so much better with Katie Mcgrath I cry TvT 

But Mon ew sucks

I think the show’s gotten better and better the more we’ve focused in on and doubled down on the characters. The thing I’m most proud about in the finale is that it’s really a character piece. So many finales, especially the genre shows, are just about people running around and fighting, and ours really digs down to the thematics and the character issues that our people have been facing all year. It’s a uniquely thoughtful and emotional finale, and I’m really proud of it because of that.

anonymous asked:

How do you'll feel if they behave as if nothing had happened? I probably will watch the show (hoping it'll be better than S2) and from now on see SC behaviour as characters of themselves they play to promote the show. It's what I feel they want us to think. I don't want to be a laughing stock then I'm sinking my ship. Thanks you and all shippers for make this cruise a wonderful journey. It not ended well but we had good times. Wish you the best!

They always act like nothing has happened so I’m not expecting anything different this time around. Cait’s award thing is coming up so we’ll have Sam either on Twitter creating a shrine to her or he’ll be there in person drooling over her. Same old same old.
