because this is worded really well

Okay.. Another Sherlocked posting. But my head is full of feelings and happiness and I need to share this. 

Last sunday was this really special day. I met Benedict. Okay. Well. I have met him before. Last year in London after Hamlet. But that day, he looked at me, he talked to me, he touched my shoulder. (You have no idea how hard my heart was pounding)

The first words were: “Oh, hey Sherly!” And I tried not to laugh, because it was so funny that he gave me this nickname. Then we made the picture together and after that, he said something like “Great costume” and “Thank you!”
God, I was.. no… I AM so happy!

I will never forget this. The announcement about his coming to Sherlocked came on my birthday, just a few minutes after midnight and it was the best gift ever. Thank you, dear Sherlocked Team. Thank you, Benedict. The weekend was special.

troll!Oro anon re: spying-on-Root!Oro: It's amazing how much could have been avoided by simply *asking for confirmation*. Oro's a smart guy, so he should *see* shady stuff and think, "Yeah, this is cool, but I'm not going to get in trouble for this am I? Because Mum/Tsunade/Jiraiya would flip if they saw this, and they're kind of my moral compass. I should listen to it." "ait, you started a fic for this? *kitten eyes* Please? When you have time. If you want to, what do you have planned for it?

^^’ Well, I did start, at least. It’s…maybe 2k words? So I don’t have a lot, but it was a SakuOro (ofc) fic where Orochimaru faked everything and went undercover to spy on Akatsuki with Sakumo as his contact/handler. And Akatsuki believed they had a really fierce hatred/rivalry thing going on where they hunted each other down and ended up fighting all the time, but actually they were just fucking on the fist solid surface they could find? Bc long-distance relationships, man. Always hard.

Since I forgot yesterday, this is apparently a belated Throwback Thursday. We will call it Flashback Friday, lol!  

I had a request to write more from the AHFoW ‘verse for my last round of Thank You Fics, which was really welcome because I always felt the story needed another Steve POV chapter, but as I was nearing the end, I was just really, really ready to be done, and ended up not doing one.  This gave me a chance to flesh out Steve’s issues a bit more and to bring them full circle. 

Plus, a wedding!

So, if you read the nearly 300K of AHFoW and thought, “Well, what that really needs is more words,” then here you go.  This Coda is set between the end of the main fic and the Epilogue, and finds Steve and Tony, while having acknowledged their respective feelings, still working through their issues, which were not magically healed by the, admittedly wonderful, sex.

I love how much you help people! Your answers are always great. Keep up the good work and thanks for being so kind all the time♥

Aw, gosh, thank you! You’re very sweet. I feel a little guilty because I can’t really spend a lot of time on each ask so I have to keep them more brief, but I really needed to hear this. I hope you’re doing well!

planet-of-the-tardigrades replied to your post “ishqbaaz 29.09.16 lb”

I actually thought dadi was going to be rushed to the hospital too for a second. She’s like the stable emotional center of the family, all hell would break loose if she did get hurt.

But I got really confused if Anika heard Shivaay’s shit b/c she didn’t really…say anything on it. Maybe she’s going to throw his words back in his face later on? Because I REALLY want that.

Hi @planet-of-the-tardigrades! :D

Gosh, I agree, havoc would be unleashed if something happened to Dadi. She’s the one senior Oberoi who has a right head on her shoulders, and we cannot afford to lose her! #protectdadi2k16

I was really super confused whether Anika heard Shivaay’s vile rant as well. I initially even had a point in the lb going “did she hear him? or is she just an even better actor than he is, at hiding her feelings?” Even if she did hear him, I was like “HOW MUCH did she hear?”, coz honestly, the end of the rant was almost kind compared to the stuff he was saying in the start. I blame the awkward camera angles/framing of the shot. The way they had it made it look like she’d wandered in, in the ten seconds of silence after he stopped talking. It would have worked better if he finished the rant, and immediately looked over at Om/Rudra to see that they were already looking at her, indicating she at least heard a part of what he was saying. 

I think she heard. Enough to catch the gist. And she’s just THAT good at masking her feelings. Because even after he cruelly repeats his “class” comment to her face, which really couldn’t be misinterpreted, she maintains her impassive expression. When she comes into the room, she has a nonplussed look, and straight away talks business. I feel like Shivaay is an audience proxy in the scene, unsure of how much she heard, so he says the class comment on purpose, to get a reaction out of her. He wants to so desperately see a reaction, anything other than this polite facade she’s maintaining, that he calls out to her as she’s leaving, despite having nothing to say. So I think that the fact that her expression doesn’t change throughout the scene (the episode even) is supposed to be interpreted as her doing some hardcore acting. I also kinda, sorta got a feeling that her comment after she bumps her knee, “main itni si chot se nahi ghabarati”, was an veiled comment, that this tiny bump is insignificant compared to how he’s hurt her. If nothing, the fact that she tells Dadi that she and Shivaay are nothing alike, surely reinforced the idea in my head that she heard. 

The only way to know for sure FOR SURE, is if they give us an Anika-centric moment, where she recalls this moment in a flashback, or if she mentions it out loud. But yeah, I agree with you, I realllllllllly want to see her throw these words back in his face, and see him sufferrrrrrrrr, coz… god, I’ve never wanted to knee Shivaay in the ‘nads more than I did today. 

(I mean, I know why he, as a character, said and did the things he did, but that still doesn’t abate the ‘nad-kneeing urges in my heart.)  

Make a difference.

Today has been a really long, sad and frustrating day for me and no one really realised it at all, well at school no one realised it. I don’t know if I’m just that good at hiding it (probably not, because I was so close to crying the whole day) or no one just cared to ask how I was doing. Not that it matters anyway, I’m pretty much used to it.

But today, I’m asking you, who’re reading this right now, to spend just a few minutes and send something nice to anyone.
A simple ‘hello’ or 'how are you?’ can really make someone’s day.
There is never enough love and caring in this world, yet it’s one of the easiest things to give to someone.

Take the time and compliment someone, tell them that you care about them.

“Spread love, not hate”

Nice words cost nothing, so use them.

I can’t help but want a ‘second chance’ for the Player. And the reason behind this is, well, the Player represents the parts of me that I hate…the monster I see in the mirror every day…and now that I’m seeing a therapist for personal reasons…I want that to reflect on this blog too…so, who’s willing to give the player a show of kindness?

omg i just thought of the stupidest, funniest shit

funny story

when I was in my 7th Grade programming class one day, my best friend, lets call her Abby, had this idea to make funny popups using .bat files. we made a ton of them but a specific one was if you opened a Microsoft Word document you’d open this hydra-kind of virus with a picture of a pitbull and a really loud scream, and if you closed it, it would make two more in its place. well that didn’t end up well because we forgot to end the .bat file and when the next class walked in, we could hear a scream and faint dog barking in the distance. the teachers couldn’t find out how to stop the virus so they had to throw away the computer and I’ve felt so guilty ever since.

So apparently Megan Trainor is worthy of a Grammy but One Direction aren’t because they’re a boyband.
What’s wrong with the word boyband?
Should I say it again? B O Y B A N D.
Is it a curse word?
Well.. B O Y B A N D
Anything wrong?
I don’t care.
One Direction are a boyband and worthy of a Grammy award.
One Direction are a boyband and worthy of a Grammy award.
One Direction are a boyband and worthy of a Grammy award.

One Direction are a boyband and worthy of a Grammy award.

One Direction are a boyband and worthy of a Grammy award.

I want you.
I want you in every sense of the word.
I want time with you,
I want adventure with you,
Hell, I want naps with you–
Friends on Netflix in the background.
I want your hand in my hand,
Your lips on my lips,
My body curving into your body;
We fit together so well.
I want laughter with you,
I want conversation with you,
Dear god, I even want arguments with you
Because it means we’re together
and we care.

So let’s do it.
Let’s make the jump
Take my hand
And love me.
Let me love you.
Because you once said
We could’ve lived a beautiful story,
And I know now that’s the only story
I want to read.

I want to write
A beautiful story
With you.

funny story

you know when you’ve been holding in a fart all day it just keeps building up and starts to hurt your stomach? well, I was in 5th grade when I’ve been doing just that. and I didn’t have anytime to go to the bathroom to fart because we were really busy that school day. my class was taking its weekly spelling test when I was literally clenching my butt cheeks together so keep my fart in. we were a few words in when I had to erase a word because I thought I didn’t spell it right. as I’m brushing off the little eraser pieces, I accidentally brush my test off my desk. I wasn’t exactly thinking when I did what I did next. I bent over to the side to retrieve my test. And I did (excuse me while I cringe for a minute) I accidentally released my fart. And it wasn’t just a fart. It was the biggest, LOUDEST fart I have ever farted in my entire life. let me remind you that we were talking a spelling test, so there was no way for me to cover up that big of a fart. the entire class was dying of laughter and I was so embarrassed that I tried to blame it on the guy next to me, but I don’t think anyone bought it. over time I’ve learned to fart silently and luckily my farts don’t usually smell. to this day I have never held in a fart ever again.


I’m just exploring possibilities

Also that’s why I’m not allowed to write fanfiction

Good job, Hank, you've let your SJW bullshit bleed over into your other projects. You've just ruined Crash Course.

If you’re wondering what this is about, we made a video on Crash Course Philosophy that I think is very careful and thoughtful and reasoned. However, it does discuss current philosophical thought about words, the value they carry, and the intentional, inadvertent, and even subconscious effects they might have. 

Which, apparently, has become a far more controversial topic than, like, whether God exists. Which is really weird.

If you want to watch the video, and give it a rating based on how well you think we covered the topic and whether or not the video is useful to the world, that would be great…because right now it’s one of our most disliked videos ever. [x]

you know what? autistic people are amazing!!

like… we’re so observant and good at noticing patterns and we catch stuff other people miss and we see the world in such a different way that it gives us a great perspective on things that neurotypicals dont have

and we care so much about stuff and we get really passionate about it and its really cute and we have things in the world that are Good and so much can be conveyed in that word and we survive and adapt so well in a world not designed for us and i think that’s awesome?

and we stim when we’re happy bc its how we interact with the world that despite everything we can still see so much wonder in

like we’re really cool

and its important to remember that when the majority of the world at best doesnt understand and at worst outright hates us

especially when most autism positivity posts are “its okay if u cant do things neurotypicals can do” and “autistic people can be intelligent!” because yes those posts are important but also autistic people can be better than neurotypicals bc we’re a diverse and intelligent and beautiful group of people and i refuse to be held to a neurotypical standard of brilliance when we’re doing pretty great by ourselves

*Edit - its perfectly okay for neurotypicals/allistics to reblog this!

I love seeing posts go over my dash which are just, y’know, witchy, because inevitably they have a really pleasing pure white and green aesthetic and words like “make sure your house is a place of calm tranquility and to banish negative energy regularly by burning sage and keeping crystals in strategic places WuW”

And then there’s me in my basement, hurling burning sage like a hand grenade and banging old iron pots and pans together like “wHO FUCKING WaNtS SOME, COME ON, BRING IT ON IF YE THINK YER HARD ENOUGH”

I know people have already mentioned this before, but doing my third re-watch of 11x18 it really cuts deep when Cas says ‘well he may have a more objective view of the situation’ about Dean. Because NO CAS. DEAN DOES NOT HAVE AN OBJECTIVE VIEW!

I am sure you are all already well aware of the definition of the word, but I wanted to add it for emphasis. THIS is what Castiel thinks about Dean. The Dean has no personal feelings regarding the situation at hand.

I think this is a more important moment than we have previously discussed actually because it is basically Cas saying “well it’s not like Dean gives a damn about me personally, so him wanting me to expell Lucifer must have something to do with the mission and the mission only.”

GUYS. You realise that this drums home exactly what we were all afraid that Castiel thought. That Dean doesn’t care about him. The fact that this episode shows us extremely blatantly how much Dean DOES CARE about Castiel means that we are most definitely, without a doubt, heading for an emotional scene between the two where Dean has to make Cas believe that he DOES have personal feelings on the matter. That he is only doing this for CAS. And guys… even if this doesn’t amount to canon Destiel, this will be a huge deal in terms of relationship development between the two characters.
