because she is an enabler

how do I get through the day without boiling over with rage at the fact that such a despicable excuse for a human being exists and that she is actually permitted near a child and that Louis has had to deal with her and that she is able to talk about him to the media and that she has the guts to talk about his mother (someone who was 80000000x the person Briana will ever be) and that she pretends to know anything at all about Louis and that she is getting media attention for absolutely no reason other than the fact that she’s a disgusting attention-whoring leech and that she gets away with this stuff because Louis’ team enables it or simply doesn’t bother looking out for his best interests and that she continues to exploit and profit off of Louis and this stunt almost two years later…….

how…….do I get through the day

omgkatsudonplease  asked:

Kaz, you know what I'm going to ask ;) Because that Viktuuri rival lawyers in a murder trial AU is something the world needs to see

Ok so Lily sent this post  and then joked that it sounded like a Rivalverse fic idea and then because she’s an enabler and I have no self control this happened (I’ll do it in summary format because my ability to write proper fic is currently sitting at -10)  

Warnings at the bottom of the post for potential triggers +spoiler alert 

So rival lawyers AU set in an ambiguous time period but think Hamilton-esque. Yuuri is the tight-laced, by the book prosecutor who’s devastating in the courtroom and Viktor is the legendary defence lawyer who somehow manages to get even the most guilty person off through a combination of charm, charisma and using the tiniest of loopholes to his advantage. Yuuri hates him a lot for it and the only cases he can’t win are the ones when Viktor is the opposing lawyer and they have both been charged with contempt of court multiple times because they get into such legendary heated arguments in the courtroom over cases. 

Since this is Rivals AU the backstory is that back when he was young Yuuri really admired Viktor and wanted to be an amazing defence lawyer just like him. Viktor was already famous, fast track through college, opened his own firm young and still manages to win every case kind of thing. When Yuuri met him Viktor accidentally insulted him and from that day on Yuuri vowed to be an even better lawyer than Viktor and crush all of his cases. 

Fast forward into the future and Yuuri has made a serious name for himself but still can’t beat Viktor. And since Viktor keeps getting people off who are technically guilty, Yuuri thinks he’s corrupt and doesn’t care about the law and will do anything for a price to matter how immoral it is. Their rivalry in the courtroom has become pretty legendary and they’re constantly walking along the line of, ‘is this an insult or is this flirting’ whenever they’re near each other and tensions are always so thick you could cut them with a knife. Yuuri ends up realizing he’s super attracted to Viktor still and that just makes him hate Viktor more.  Everyone thinks that one day Yuuri’s either going to kill Viktor or bone him and Viktor is constantly provoking (flirting with) Yuuri which makes it worse. 

It all comes to a head a couple more years down the line when Yuuri is the prosecutor in a murder case. The murdered man was a complete ‘good citizen’ type, good job, loving now devastated family etc etc and Yuuri is determined to give them justice. Viktor is the lawyer for the accused and even though the person is 100% guilty he still somehow manages to get them off scot-free. Yuuri is furious and challenges Viktor to a duel (back to the Hamilton style) because he feels like Viktor is corrupt and arrogant and needs to be knocked down a peg or two. 

Then in true Hamilton style, things go wrong, mistakes are made and Yuuri ends up accidentally killing Viktor in the duel even though that was never his intention. 

It’s only after Viktor is dead that Yuuri finds out the murdered man he was defending was secretly an awful person and the murderer was a victim and had a very good reason for killing them when they did. But it wasn’t a reason that would hold up in court and they didn’t have enough proof of what the other man had done to defend themselves so Viktor had stepped in to get them off without prison time anyway to protect them. And it turned out that all of Viktor’s ‘corrupt’ cases were people who were technically guilty by law but not morally wrong and didn’t deserve the punishments they were facing and Viktor had been defending them because he knew the law was fallible and it was the right thing to do. 

So Yuuri takes up Viktor’s work in his memory because he’s so guilt-ridden for killing Viktor but nothing he does will ever bring Viktor back. 

To make matters worse, it turns out that Viktor was completely in love with Yuuri, he had been for years,  and had always intended to throw away his shot in the duel because he couldn’t bare the thought of hurting him. And he was planning on finally trying to ask Yuuri to date him before everything went wrong. So Yuuri accidentally killed the potential love of his life and someone who was genuinely a good person but he didn’t realize that because he was too blinded by hate until it was far too late. 


Trigger Warning for Major Character Death

A Terrible Idea

I was supposed to work on CSBB today.  I did this instead.  Blame the show writers and Captain Swan when I miss this weekend’s CSBB check-in, but I had to get this out of my system.  Sorry if it’s a little slapdash, LOL.

A quick and dirty missing scene from 6.18.  (Canon Compliant.  Plain Smut.  Rated M.)

Find it on AO3.

Tagging @the-lady-of-misthaven, @noorasaetlre, @villains-happy-ending, and @kmomof4 because you all are enablers.  And @bleebug because she asked for stuff like this.




Emma shuttles her mother out the door, promising to meet up with the troops at the sheriffs’ station shortly. Snow totes her ominously-large wedding planner – as great a harbinger of future suffering as any magical artifact Emma’s ever encountered – down the porch steps, and Emma waits until she’s halfway to the sidewalk before shutting the door and turning the bolt (for all the good that does).  

Breakfast long forgotten, she flies up the stairs to the bedroom to suit up for another day of dealing with the Black Fairy’s machinations.  Pulling clean underthings from her dresser drawer, she catches her reflection in the bedroom mirror.  She pauses at the sight of her mussed hair, biting her lip at both the memory of how it got that way and the realization that she definitely needs to see the inside of a shower before they get going – to the wash away the evidence, as it were.  Her eyes dart to the closed bathroom door.  The sound of running water coming from within reminds her that their shower is currently occupied and she has to wait until Killian vacates it or use the bathroom down the hall. And then Option C hits her.  

It’s a great idea.  

It’s a terrible idea.

Pancakes.

She’s all in.  

Gods, they’re going to be so late.

Colleen Wing doesn't deserve any of this

I was trying to dissect Iron Fist episode by episode, but it is too painful. Here be spoilers:

Jessica Henwick is visibly struggling in some scenes where her character should punch DR in the throat for crossing her boundaries. Because it’s not in character for her to let him get away with stuff like this.

First meeting: Mangles Mandarin and polices her identity. He’s actually THAT GUY in that scene.

Second meeting: tries to get a job with her again even though she said no the first time and her dojo specialises in Japanese martial arts. Hey, she’s too poor to give him a job but she was nice enough to give him shoes.

Which is not an invitation for him to hide out at her place again when people are after him. 

Or mansplain martial arts to her in her dojo. They practice two different schools of martial arts

And it’s not an invitation for him to step into her class, interrupt the student leading the class and then hitting a teenager (from an abusive background) with a wooden practice sword for laughing at him. (This is already a major red flag.)

That’s at least two throat punches. But oddly enough, Colleen Wing, who does not take shit from other people in the show, does not punch him in the throat.

She also does not tell him off strongly for:

- Interrupting her training session with Claire Temple–that’s really unforgivable in general–interrupting a scene of Claire Temple being trained by Colleen Wing? Seriously? There goes any chance of passing the Mako Mori Test. (It looked like the actress was rather relieved when the script had Claire Temple stay for lunch so that she would not be alone with him.)

- Persuading her to back him up in a dangerous mission after Claire left by buying her building and becoming her landlord–that’s beyond overbearing, that’s some 50 Shades levels of controlling and rich man’s privilege. (She does not punch him for this–she just says “fix my sink”.)

- Rummaging through her stuff and taking her sword. He just forced her to go along with him to spy on dangerous people and he’s looking through her stuff? (She just says “you’re disrespecting my sword with your wuxia bs” and then they flirt awkwardly over swordplay. Ew.)

The writers try to hide how shitty all this was by having DR be Colleen’s enabler–because she actually wants to do dangerous stuff and he saw that in her. They are both secretly adrenaline junkies that like beating people up or something??? That’s some ridiculously far-fetched characterisation there just to give them some common ground (they don’t really have any common ground–the writers are forcing it beyond the bounds of belief).

All this bad writing in aid of trying to hook her up with DR. If anyone tried that first line with a biracial woman, it’s an instant bad first impression even if the guy was Asian. Everything else after that is worth of a restraining order–even if the guy was Asian (and should know better).



The worst part is, DR treats his other favourite-woman-to-stalk Joy better than Colleen, the one he’s allegedly attracted to. Because white women are fragile and much be protected–another trope that needs to die. Even though Joy is not very nice to him and will very likely turn on him in future.  This sort of thing would be less obvious if there were more women in this show or this entire series with lines–but it’s sort of glaring when Claire Temple was beaten up in Daredevil Season 1, Elektra was killed in Daredevil Season 2 and Colleen Wing gets her face smashed in and her fingers dislocated in cage fights with men twice her size (twice so far from episodes 1 to 5). 



That’s only episodes 1 to 5. I cannot stomach any more bad writing in the name of hooking DR up with Colleen Wing.

In summary: Even if they had cast a Chinese actor as DR, I would still root for Colleen Wing to punch him in the throat because the writing is that bad.

thanks for this! the only thing I’d like to add is they also treat Karen the white woman better in Daredevil seasons 1 and 2. So while the Netflix defenders shows do have WoC they make sure to treat the WoC worse than the white women.  The only exception is Luke Cage where the WoC were respected and valued.

NO BUT ITS SO IMPORTANT. bc serena is finally letting someone in, she's letting bernie in, she's being vulnerable and its beautiful for our normally no-nonsense professional auu mum. so she can heal. i just have a lot of feelings about these two.

YES! I love fluff as much as the next person, but I LIVE for this kind of character and relationship development because it goes so much deeper than just your basic making out etc (see Jac and Matteo). This episode wasn’t easy but it was so important. Bernie not letting Serena get away with erratic behaviour because she loves her too much to enable her even in her grief, and Serena finally letting Bernie be there for her. I have so many feelings and I’m actually so happy with this episode. *goes to rewatch The Hug™*

Happy Birthday, Em. x Tom

I wrote @coyg-81 a Feltson drabble just because. She is an enabler. 


Setting: Emma’s Oxfordshire flat

Her boyfriend Mack is visiting her from Northern California. She’s about to start more press for The Circle, so they wanted to squeeze some time together in. He makes her breakfast, and there is a knock at the door.

“Delivery for Miss Watson. Please sign here." 

She takes the massive bouquet and places them on the foyer table and opens the envelope.

Hey Em, 

Happy Birthday. I was torn between getting you peonies and anemones, which I remembered were your favourite, but I settled on yellow roses because they mean friendship, and you looked beautiful in the film. It was great seeing you again. 

xTom

She bites her nails no knowing how to react. Mack calls her into the kitchen letting her know breakfast is ready. He’s prepared whole grain pancakes, fresh fruit, and coffee. A bit too healthy for the mood she’s in. She honestly would have been happy with a can of beans and toast. 

"Who was that?” Mack asked, pouring her a cup of coffee.

“Oh, just a delivery. I got flowers for my birthday.”

“May I ask from whom?”

She nervously stabs her pancakes with her fork and clears her throat. “Oh, um. From Tom.”

“Hanks, Hiddleston, or Felton?”

She laughs at this because she does have quite a few Toms in her life. “Felton. The card was quite sweet, actually. He said he was going to send me my favorite flowers, but instead sent yellow roses because of the symbolism of friendship.”

“Oh,” Mack says deadpan.

Emma could Mack tense as he grew silent. He didn’t have anything to worry about, did he? She and Tom had only recently started talking again, well, outside of their group texts. So much time had passed since they were teenagers. Wow, had it been ten years since she told him she was going to uni in the States? He didn’t take it well. They were finally taking the steps beyond friendship, and she ruined it. At the time, it felt like the best decision for her personal growth, but seeing him finding comfort in another woman destroyed her for years. She became a serial monogamist. From one serious relationship to the next, but never settling down to get married. But he did the same thing, didn’t he? Leaving for LA, in a serious relationship, never marrying…She wonders, did he ever even think of proposing? They were together for years.

“Emma.” Mack snaps her out of her train of thought.

“Oh, sorry. My mind was on the next press tour,” she lied.

Her iPhone buzzes as a text comes through. She looks down, and it’s from Tom.

TF: Hey Em. It’s 1 a.m. here in Vancouver, but since I’m up, I thought I’d wish you happy birthday. Did you get my gift?

She smiles and replies. 

EW: Yes, they are lovely, but I would have been happier with the peonies and anemones 

EW: How did you remember?

TF: You always had a fresh bouquet in your dressing room. They smelled so lovely. I don’t know. Just stuck with me.

Mack grows uneasy with his girlfriend completely ignoring him while she texts

TF: I just wrapped for the season. I’m heading to my mum’s for a week before heading back to Venice Beach. Will you be around? Maybe catch up for dinner or drinks?

EW: Actually, I’ll be in LA 25 April. Want to meet up then?

TF: Yeah. Brilliant. Do we want to invite some friends?

Emma thinks about this, and she’s been to party after party over the past month or so. She could do with a night in.

EW: Could we actually do something low key? Like a bottle of wine on my hotel balcony?

TF: what about my place? I have a great view of the beach.

EW: sounds perfect. I’ll text you later with details. Thanks again for the flowers.

TF: You’re very welcome. Heading to bed now. 

TF: Night.

EW: Night.

This may be a bit controversial and you are free to disagree. It is regarding Eirin's ultramarine orb elixir or the point device mode in lolk, how does it work canonically? Some say it shows one every potential future where they are killed in a fight and forced them to relive each instance until they get the one they which they survive groundhog day loop. Junko said no matter how many obstacles she threw at heroines, they overcame, probably because the potion enables them to keep coming back.

I don’t recall the exact details, but my understanding was that it shows the future like you said. Ultimately only the result where they survive actually happens though, and that’s what Junko responds to. From her perspective the players are simply perfect and never make mistakes. You’d have the same response if you saw someone get past Piece without losing a life.

You’re pursuing Andrew.

Ever since we found out that “not everybody’s going to make it out” by the end of Crooked Kingdom, I’ve been torturing myself with ideas about who it could be because why not.

  • Inej. She’s kidnapped. She could be Van Eck’s bargaining chip, or she could be the Six’s false hope. 
    • Kaz finally confesses that he wants her back. They find where she’s being hidden, and there’s this giddy sense of hope building amongst them because they’re going to get her back, they’re going to get their Wraith back, they just know it. 
    • But Kaz finds Inej a little too late. 
    • She’s slumped in the chair she’s tied to and there’s blood everywhere and he hears Inej’s voice in his head, “Say you’re sorry.”
  • The jurda parem didn’t get to Nina, but it got to Jesper. None of the six wanted him to do it, but they couldn’t change Jesper’s mind. “It’ll be fun,” he said. We can’t save Inej without this, he thought.
  • Matthias. He made an oath to Nina, and he told himself and her that he’d never break it, but this sure as hell feels like breaking it.
  • Nina at the hands of other Grisha because Matthias isn’t druskelle anymore dammit. He’s their friend and he’s hers and he knows better now. Matthias made mistakes and there has to be more to his life than fixing them, so Nina will buy him that time if it’s the last thing she does. 
  • Wylan refuses to get a crow tattoo and Jesper teases him for being afraid of the pain. 
    • Yeah, he’s scared of the pain, there’s no denying it, but he’s also scared of being a part of something. Something real. Something stable. Something concrete.
    • Wylan was never allowed to stay. His father pushed him away and he wasn’t enough of anything to be a member of the Dregs. He told himself he wanted to keep it that way. 
    • He never expected to survive, but maybe this way it won’t count as leaving them.
    • Once Inej is safe, once his father is long gone, once Wylan is bleeding out on the pavement and Jesper is clutching at his hand like he wants to break every single bone, he realises that the tattoo wouldn’t make a difference. 
    • Wylan is leaving. He’s leaving Nina and Inej and Kaz and his flute and the Barrel and Jesper. He hates it more than anything in the world.
  • Inej and Jesper die together. They’ve always had bad taste, but they never expected it to get them in any real trouble. However, they know their place, and neither of them are worth as much as the Lieutenant of The Dregs. If Kaz is safe, everything will be okay. They’ve done their part. 
    • They’re climbing when it happens. Kaz was already at the top, not looking over the edge but waiting for Jesper and Inej at the end of the rope. 
    • It’s not an easy wall to scale in the first place, but the wound in Jesper’s arm makes it worse.
    • He starts to fall, and Inej reaches for him without thinking, and ends up losing her grip, too
    • Jesper tries to curl himself around Inej. It’s impossible for both of them to survive but maybe, just maybe she could. For the Wraith to die falling would be a cruel joke. 
    • Inej pushes him away because Jesper picks the worst times to play hero
    • She just squeezes his hand, and waits for them to hit the ground.
  • All of them. 
    • Van Eck keeps Jesper and Nina because they’re Grisha and they could be useful. They don’t last long.
    • Inej is tortured for information on the Dregs but she doesn’t breathe a word about them to Van Eck’s men. Then, she doesn’t breathe at all.
    • Matthias is thrown back into a cell to rot. He was never meant to get out in the first place. 
    • Jan Van Eck decides that the best way to deal with his troublesome son is to kill him with his own hands
    • But they let Kaz go
  • There was no part of Kaz that was not broken that had not healed wrong. When he got back to the Barrel, alone and empty handed, all those parts of him broke once again.

Kylo continued to walk in silence, trailing a few feet behind Rey, and while that’ll usually be no problem for him, with Rey it was different.

“C'mon Rey. Talk to me.”

“No.” She said as she walked faster to try and leave him behind, but his long legs allowed him to easily keep up with her pace.

“I said I’m sorry. What more do you want from me?” Kylo asked as Rey stopped mid walk.

Garnet: the burden of leadership, self-restraint, and longing for connection

post-“Jail Break”, a lot of us rather inevitably and understandably started using its ‘Garnet is a fusion of Ruby and Sapphire’ revelation to both interpret Garnet in subsequent episodes and to recontextualize her admittedly stoic, withdrawn behavior throughout Season 1.

this sort of ‘recontextualization effect’ encouraged some funny fandom trends–like figuring out what Ruby and Sapphire were feeling/thinking during moments like Garnet’s infamous telephone conversation with Dr. Maheswaran in “Fusion Cuisine” or the duration of Garnet’s fusion with Amethyst in “Coach Steven”. and those were mostly harmless, but allowing Ruby and Sapphire’s love to determine our understanding of Garnet as a wholly happy, healthy relationship–even over behavior that suggested something deeper and different–really does Garnet a huge disservice.

Garnet isn’t just Ruby and Sapphire in a trench coat, or Ruby and Sapphire copiloting Garnet’s body.

Garnet embodies Ruby and Sapphire’s love, and she’s a gestalt–her own, distinct person, with her own personality and experiences, who’s quite literally greater than the sum of her parts.

during The Week of Sardonyx, a lot of us–including myself–noted that, because she embodies Ruby and Sapphire’s loving relationship, Garnet couldn’t really comprehend the depths of Amethyst’s and Pearl’s loneliness, insecurity, self-loathing, and lack of self-esteem… 

…and while there’s definitely more to it than I originally understood before my Garnet-targeted canon rewatch, I still believe that point has a little merit. while Amethyst and Pearl once had Rose to help them work through their issues and remind them that they were valued and loved, Rose ultimately abandoned her physical form to have Steven–and even before that, it was impossible for Rose to always be there for Amethyst and Pearl in the same way that Ruby and Sapphire are for one another, because they’re “always together”. like Pearl, it’s very likely that Ruby and Sapphire experienced marginalization and oppression on Homeworld…but by fusing out of love, they’re able to lend each other constant, unconditional support and achieve a transcendent sense of togetherness.

that unconditional love, constant support, and transcendent togetherness of Ruby and Sapphire’s fusion are the foundation of Garnet’s very being. in her own words, Garnet has told Steven on two separate occasions that being a fusion makes her feel like she’s never alone…

…and the relative emotional stability and security she feels because of that–along with her unique abilities and amplified strength as a fusion–are probably the qualities that made her the best candidate to step up as the Crystal Gems’ new leader after Rose gave up her physical form.

but–and I cannot stress this enough–none of those qualities preclude Garnet from longing for significant connections with others, experiencing loneliness, or having her own insecurities. Ruby and Sapphire may always be together, but Garnet is her own person with her own feelings, thoughts, emotional needs, and relationships with the others. Garnet’s needs are different than Amethyst’s and Pearl’s, but hers are just as valid as theirs. 

in fact, Garnet’s behavior and interactions with the other Crystal Gems throughout the series establish that she wants connection keenly…but deliberately distances and holds herself back from her teammates emotionally, hence her ‘stoic’ and ‘put together’ exterior.

anonymous asked:

Delena is about acceptance, learning and growing together. Stelena is about the eternal desire to fix each other, she wants to fix Stefan and he wants to fix Elena. It’ll never work.

I’m laughing because those three things are exactly what SE is about.

The fact that Elena accepts Stefan’s greatest insecurity and not only accepts it but embraces it, provides him with an inner peace he could not find anywhere or with anyone else:

The fact that Stefan is protective of Elena but does not coddle her and not only accepts but embraces that she is a woman who is strong-willed and empathetic and takes charge, allows her to have some of the most agency she’s ever had on the show because he’s there to back her up:

He accepts and embraces the kind of woman Elena is, he doesn’t just use her in relation to his own redemption and because he accepts and embraces who she is, he enables her to live her life in a way that she wants to.

Stefan and Elena continuously learn and grow from each other because they’re honest with one another even if they don’t want to hear what’s being said and they encourage one another to be strong while also being emotional support for each other:

and they grow because having one in another in their lives not only allows them to flourish where they’re happy and more social, they become better friends and they can help the people around them because they have each other to rely on. The fact that they both don’t allow each other to spiral into a place of despair and nihilism and remind each other of who they are their core, people who strive to do the right thing, people who have compassion and empathy for the people around them does not mean they’re trying to eternally fix each other, it means they respect and care about one another. They’re the best versions of themselves with each other. Damon does not grow or learn with Elena, he lies to her, manipulates her, kills people close to her, systemically wipes out generations of a singular family and Elena certainly doesn’t grow or learn with Damon because she became increasingly more vapid with each minute she spent with him. They just roll over and die when they’re with each other.

You tried though.

As a lesbian, I am really fucking tired of seeing people attack trans people under the guise of being supportive of lesbians. 

I really don’t give a shit if someone once identified as a lesbian and now as a trans man or if a trans woman hits on a cis lesbian. I don’t care if you think that trans women are “invading” women’s spaces. They’re women and so they belong in there.  It’s not progressive to pit woman against woman. It’s not progressive to hate another woman because of how she was born. It’s not progressive to pass or enable laws that result in women being harassed in bathrooms. Stop misgendering them. Stop excluding them. Stop stereotyping them. Stop treating them like shit. I don’t give a lick about how you were raised. Everyone can learn to be a better person, you just have to want to be.
