Ghosts don't have a heartbeat, people do. Heartbeat's what keeps you alive. Two ghosts trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat. Two metaphorically dead people standing there, without a heartbeat - w/out what made them alive, what made them livers. Trying to actually remember how it felt when they could be who they used to be - two alive humans with heartbeats, love pulsing around them wherever they'd go, and life inside them. I wanna punch someone.

i despise this because it’s so introspective and well-thought out and deep and then there’s the typo “livers” and i can’t stop laughing you deserved BETTER

I need some advice. 

We have a 14 year old Border Collie with extreme arthritis in her hips and she’s at the point where she’s not standing up on her own anymore and falls a lot. She sometimes walks well on carpet and sometimes gets up on her own on carpet. We have put rugs all over the house for her, especially in what should be her high traffic areas but they don’t seem to help. Usually she just lies there and barks until I pick her up and I usually end up having to carry her from room to room and she’s not a light dog. She loves going for walks but they’ve been drastically cut short because she falls a lot during walks too on both the grass and sidewalk. She falls during potty breaks too, and can’t stand up to get to food or water. Mentally and in every other way she’s fine but she’s almost completely immobile and frustrated about it. 

We are taking her to the vet tonight and I want to bring up euthanasia because her quality of life is so poor and it’s taking such a toll on us having to carry her everywhere. I just don’t know how to bring it up when she’s perfectly healthy every other way. She’s already on tons of pain meds and a few other medications. I’m just feeling incredibly guilty and worried. Has anybody else dealt with any thing like this?  Any words of wisdom?

What do you imagine Jon as Superman looking like? Love interest, job, friends, the whole 9 yards and WHEN do you think he would become Superman because you obviously can't have hik as the main Superman until Clark leaves to stand up for those who can't stand themselves up in the stars at about the end of the century?

I actually do think Jon Kent as the second Superman is not simply a cool concept to see now and again but something that could actively support its own series, in the same way that while they’ve never taken that step, it feels clear there’s enough conceptual and character weight that a Batman 666 book could absolutely work.

I have a few ideas for how to realize that in terms of his setup, his secret identity, and some of the touchstones of his world like the new Fortress and how Metropolis has changed - stuff I’d want to keep to myself until such time as I’d actually get a shot (if you’re curious what that might look like I wrote up a 20-pager Superman comic script recently, nudge nudge) - but I think the elephant in the room of what to do with Clark is pretty simple. Just have it turn out when Jon’s in his 20s that there’s a reality-threatening danger out in space which can’t be immediately punched out that Superman has to go deal with, and Lois is going with him to cover the biggest story of all time, so since he’s going to have to leave Earth for at least several years he officially passes down the mantle; even if Lois and Clark end up returning, Clark can remain in semi-retirement to spend Lois’s golden years together, letting Jon operate independently without having to kill Lois off, make Jon wait decades/centuries, or find some excuse to shuffle Clark off the board prematurely, while still understanding that one day the original’ll fly off to the stars for good to fulfill his One Million destiny.

I know there’s the obvious hurdles; it’d be outside the main line, it establishes a ‘definitive’ future, etc. But there’s so much opportunity there to play with the iconography and base ideas of Superman’s world completely differently, to approach his foundational themes from a new angle in a way I think would work best with Jon and we couldn’t ever get in the ‘present’, and by the very nature of it being both in the near future and untethered to the DCU’s ostensible need to keep a foot in the real world to do something looser and poppier and weirder than the main books could typically get away with. Like I said, 666 is the golden standard here, the conventions and aesthetics of in this case a Superman comic as thrown in a blender and screamed through a megaphone. Name it something snappy like The Superman of Tomorrow, give it a Damian counterpart book and maybe one or two titles for other characters (alongside associated stuff like Superman Squad and Batman Beyond), and Superman II could be the starting point of an imprint all his own.

I'm always avoiding the YouTube comment section because it makes me angry but I was really curious to see what people thought of Negan's backstory and damn! People really like him now. Yeah, he killed Glen and Abe but Negan is my favorite character because of how complex he is. Can't wait to see more of him.

I always avoid Youtube’s comments as a rule so I had no idea about the Negan hate lol Also, everyone I know loves him so…:P But it’s good know people are realizing Negan is not “pure evil”, he’s just damaged. And I hope they also realize that any problem with Negan’s characterization is NOT Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s fault. I can live with people not loving Negan as much as we do (we don’t really need they approval anyway) but I can’t stand people trashing JDM because the writers are not doing what the fans want :/

What age does Darcy take her first steps and how did the get her to do I️t haha

Probably 10 ish MONTHS. I always thought she took her first steps before a year. Granted, it’s not the most coordinated ‘walking’ but she definitely does take some steps towards H because giggling with abandon and tumbling forward into his waiting arms to catch her. I don’t know if they really have to do much! I think she’s a baby that loves to stand up and bounce from an early age and she loves walking along things (the sofa, etc.) so I think something just clicks one day and she’s all, “Oh, yeah! I’ve got legs! And feet! And my daddy’s right there and I want to see him!” so she does (kind of)! xx.

Malec will fight together. Not against each other, together. Combining their two talents, and it’s staggeringly, amazingly good, and emotional. To see them on the battlefield is so awesome. And a battlefield that has deep emotional content and resonance. That’s when it really means something

Okay so helppp. Everyone seems to have a hc that Draco and Harry are roommates in 8th year and when there’s Music and Moonlight and Love and Romance n all that ish and it’s trés cute but BUT. Nobody seems to have considered the concept of Weasel and Ferret sharing a dorm!? Pining!Harry, Pining!Draco, extremely stressed annoyed and hilarious Ron! Ron becomes matchmaker a la FGS MALFOY SHUT UP ABOUT HARRY FOR A SECOND WONT YOU and then they date and Ron is congratulated and bondingg and help me aa

OKAY but this is an amazing headcanon!!!!!! 

  • Harry’s really jealous when roommates are assigned, because he wanted to room with Ron of COURSE, what are you talking about?? Why else would he possibly be upset??
  • Harry encourages Ron to bitch about Draco’s annoying habits because he’s dying to know exactly what it would be like to live with him
  • ”Malfoy sleeps NAKED?! Fuck, that’s ho— aaah— horrible. I can’t believe you get to— I mean have to, yes, of course— live with that, Ron.”
  • Harry offers to trade rooms with Ron for a few nights a week because “that’s what friends are for, mate. If you have to suffer Malfoy’s pale skin and cock being on display, then I should get to— HAVE TO suffer it too.”
  • MEANWHILE Draco talks about Harry all the time.
  • ”I bet you wish you were rooming with Potter instead, don’t you? Perfect Potter. He would be the worst roommate. He would throw his clothes all over my bed, and then I would be able to smell him for days on my pillow. Disgusting.”
  • But then one time at like three in the morning Draco randomly starts a genuine conversation with Ron about whether he thinks Potter has forgiven him.
  • Ron is like… “Uh, yeah, mate… I reckon so.”
  • ”What makes you think that???”
  • ”Well… he used to talk about all the evil things he thought you were up to, but now he mostly just talks about your hair”
  • ”Oh…..” *long silence* “well I forgive him too, you know. For the Sectumsempra thing. So you can invite him to our room sometimes. I wouldn’t mind.”
  • Ron rolls over and is about to fall asleep when he realizes exactly what is happening here and just buries his head under his pillow and vows never to emerge
  • Only he does emerge and he invites Harry to his room
  • ”Are you sure I should go now? Malfoy might be in there!”
  • ”Yeah, he is”
  • ”What if I see his cock??”
  • ”You— what— uuuh. Well, then you’ll have seen his cock.”
  • ”Okay let’s go”
  • So then Harry and Ron are hanging out on Ron’s bed while Draco studies at his desk. Until he gets up and announces he needs a nap.
  • Of course as we all know Draco sleeps naked, so he starts slowly stripping off his clothes
  • Harry is like drooling and making weird whimpering noises and just staring so blatantly it’s ridiculous.
  • Ron calmly stands up and walks out the door, shutting it behind him, and neither Harry nor Draco notice.
  • A few hours later, Harry asks Ron what he would think about rooming with Neville again
  • Ron is overjoyed, switches with Harry that very day, and he lives happily ever after
  • except he’s still regularly exposed to naked Malfoy (and Harry now) because those two have no shame at all and they are apparently “too busy” to bother with locks

i used to see my parents fight even as a young girl hiding under my blanket. and i would always wonder why my mother simply never walk out of that door. it was all so ironical from the eyes of a ten year old because my mother would always remind me to stand up for myself. but now i get why she stayed because walking out on someone you love is easy but staying and fighting for what you believe in is harder.

lessons my mother taught me//nikitagupta

Imagine being Dean’s daughter and announcing to him that you are dating Jack.

“Him?” Dean’s rough voice broke the heavy silence that had set between the two of you “You are dating him?” he all-but-growled as he stared deeply in your eyes.

“Well, I- I wouldn’t say exactly dating yet, he’s not that familiar with the term and I’m-”

“Yet?!” Dean exclaimed, his voice coming slightly high-pitched “Yet? You mean this will keep going on?!”

“Well, yes dad of course it is!” you huffed, rolling your eyes “That’s why I am telling you, because this is actually important to me. And maybe Jack doesn’t quite understand the terms yet but I know that his feelings are real, that all of this between him and I is real as well.”

“Which again brings me back to my original question: Him?!” he looked at you with so much shock it made you groan and cross your arms over your chest.

“Will you try to be a little less surprised, please? I thought you’d be a little less shocked at your daughter-”

“Dating the son of Lucifer? Oh yeah!” he cut you off full of sarcasm and a hint of angst “Why the hell would I ever mind that (Y/n)?!”

HC: richie crying after eddie tells him that he loves him for the first time bc nobody ever says that to richie, not even his family, and it's so good to be loved and feel loved and wOw, he is overwhelmed

- richie would be staying at Eddie’s due to a rough week at his parents house and he brought his guitar with him to annoy Eddie with whilst he’s trying to do his homework

- one night Eddie came out the shower to hear richie singing softly to himself and playing the guitar and Eddie would stand in the doorway and just watch him because he looked and sounded beautiful

- when he was done richie would see him standing there and just go red because oh shit, no one was supposed to hear

- “I sound like a dying cat, sorry ‘bout that e-“

- “I love you”

- Richie nearly choked on air

- it goes silent and neither of them move and Eddie goes a little red because why isn’t richie saying it back??

- then richie would feel his bottom lip quiver and he’d look away and put his guitar down so he could put his face in his hands

- Eddie would rush over and start fawning over him, asking what was wrong and Richie would just stare at him with tear filled eyes

- “you love me? how?”

- “what are you talking about? Because you’re you, rich, thats why I love you”

- that just makes the poor boy cry harder and Eddie holds him until he calms down enough to talk

- he tells Eddie he hasn’t heard anyone tell him that in years, even his parents didn’t say it, and Eddie nearly starts crying

- Richie is always so scared Eddie hates him because of his jokes but Eddie admits that’s what he loves, richie has always been himself around him

- Eddie kisses Richie so damn gently and Richie is an absolute sucker for this boy

- he doesn’t say it back until Eddie is curled into his chest that night and he smiles to himself because he’s with the most beautiful boy he’s ever met, and he loves him

- “love you too, Eds, always have, always will”

When you ask me what’s wrong, I’m not sure what to say.

Do you wanna hear how I wish I could crawl out of my own skin because it doesn’t feel much like home anymore?

Do you wanna hear how I don’t mind the voices in my head or the ringing in my ears because then I know I’m not alone?

Do you wanna hear how I can’t stand to look in the mirror anymore because I don’t know what self love is?

Do you wanna hear about how I’m not sure what love is because it’s something so foreign to me?

Do you wanna hear about how I cant sleep much anymore so I often find myself thinking about everything I wish I could change.

Do you wanna hear about how I’m not even sure why I’m sad, I just know that this hole inside me shouldn’t be here.

I know that these things are things you don’t need to hear, so instead I tell you I’m fine, just a little tired


Can we talk about something? I’ve seen a lot of back and forth on whether or not Jughead regrets what happened with Toni so here’s my take on 2x06.

While it’s true Jug never vocalized how he felt about his kiss/make-out, I don’t think he needed to. Not after we see him make this face as Toni leaves the kitchen. To me this look says it all:

Regret. Sadness. 

Now let’s think about his narration here. He’s talking about masks and letting them down and having others see what you’re hiding. In this brief second his own “I’m fine” mask falls away and we get a glimpse at what’s really going on inside his head.

He then goes on to talk about the masks going back up, which leads us to the diner scene. I know this exchange between him and Toni is a thorn in the side for some, but I have a different take so hear me out…

At this point, he still thinks Betty doesn’t love him or want him. Couple that with his serious mommy abandonment issues and you understand why he isn’t exactly pushing Toni away. He’s taking what he can get, a consolation prize. But Toni sees through his mask and lets him down because she knows he’s not over Betty and whatever happened with them was just a rebound. His face goes from upbeat to a little angry at her words. He know’s she’s right - and the truth stings. He also looks a little fazed when she shuts him down. Not because he has romantic feelings for Toni per se, but rather he can’t believe he’s getting rejected again by a female, and even worse, by one that wasn’t even his first choice to begin with. He’s probably thinking “what is wrong with me and why won’t anyone love me” but instead of talking about it, he puts on his “I’m fine” mask and just goes with it.

I don’t hate what happened here. It feels realistic and relatable. I do hope think we’ll get more from him once the kiss+ comes out. Aside from Jughead not telling Betty about it, I’m okay with things as they stand. 

P.S. - let’s not forget another driving force behind the kiss and postmortem chat - establishing Toni’s bisexuality and to make it clear nothing more will happen between her and Jughead in that way moving forward.


— two thoughts, equally as terrifying

john and sherlock answering the question: if you could have any superpower in the world what would it be?

  • john protests immediately that this is an unfair question because sherlock already has a superpower in deduction
  • at which sherlock protests that using one’s own brain is not a superpower, and also he wants to be invisible. much easier for crime investigations.
  • john makes an unsavory joke about other things an invisible person could do, for instance, in the soldiers’ barracks of the queen’s guard
  • sherlock huffs and insists that it not at all what he meant and anyway john it’s your turn
  • john shrugs and says that if he could choose anything he’d choose the ability to know where sherlock is at all times and possibly also his heart rate
  • sherlock starts to make a joke about john wanting to spy on him wanking in the shower but john doesn’t laugh
  • so I’d know where to find you, john says, really seriously. so I’d know if you were in trouble. so I’d know if—if—if your heart stopped beating.
  • sherlock stares at him, and stares at him, and this isn’t a fun question anymore, not when john looks like that, and he stands helplessly with empty hands and says I’m sorry. I didn’t know I’m so sorry.
  • don’t apologise, I’m sorry that’s not what I meant, john says softly, and he takes sherlock’s hands in his because he can see that sherlock needs something to hold onto. I’m not trying to make you feel guilty. I just want you to know for sure now. that I care. that I love you. that I would have you with me always if it were possible and I would carry your heartbeat safe next to mine, just in case. just in case.
  • and sherlock kisses him, and lets john take his pulse, fingers to wrist, steady steady steady, and says I would give it to you to carry if I could, and says I know I know and I will never forget again, and says I love you too john watson
  • and john kisses him back and smiles and says now that’s your real superpower, you know. loving me the way you love me.
  • and sherlock kisses him once more and answers that’s not a superpower. that’s just what happened when you loved me first.

Just a reminder that

Two years ago, I had break downs everyday from the moment I woke up. I couldn’t speak without wanting to kill myself, I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror, I dropped out of school and became housebound due to dysphoria and anxiety. I never thought I would start hormones. I was going to kill myself.

Today, I am over 2 years on hormones. I rarely have dysphoria, I am confident speaking, I can look in the mirror and fairly like myself and I feel happy. I don’t want to die.

Just a reminder that

Three years ago, I didn’t think me and my family would ever be the same again and would never see me as male. My mum told me, “You’ll never be a boy because you don’t have a penis.”

My mum now calls me her son, my sister and brothers know me as their brother and take me out for drinks and my mum finally accepts me as being gay.

Just a reminder that

A month ago, I didn’t think anyone would ever love me because I am trans and that everyone thinks I am repulsive because of it, or a liar, or tricking them, or a cheater, or making a choice.

I now have a boyfriend who supoorts and loves me for what I am, and is making me more comfortable and accept myself as being trans, and to stand up for myself against people who do not care to emphasize but hate.

It does get better. It may not happen now, or tomorrow, or the week after, or several months. You may not think it will happen to you. I didn’t think any of this was possible, but it did. I held on, no matter how many bruises I gave my hands or isolated myself, because I deserved to have a happy future and you need to hold on too, to that hope.

Believe me, it is there. You are going to be one of those people who start hormones, who have surgery, who find your one and only true love or start a family. You are no different to any of us, your time will come.
