okay so i am a nerd and love the nasa comparison for IPRE and know way too much about nasa recruiting methods, so i’m here to tell y’all that one of the most important things that they do for recruiting long term missions is making sure that an entire team is compatible personality wise and will often make their final decisions on how they interact with each other and anyway i’m looking for whatever fuck that looked at taako and lup and then barry and said it’d be fine
Tumblr prompt: runaway prince!simon and
Two weeks from his coronation and three
from his wedding to Princess Isabelle of Idris, the Prince of New York found
himself on a park bench in Brooklyn. His face buried in the palms of his hand
as his phone continued to ring.
Deep breaths. Deep breathes. Deep- the phone is laying in pieces on the
concrete walkway in shattered fragments.
“You’re a little far from the palace” A
slightly accented voice said, from out of the corner of his eyes Simon saw
“Oh I’m sorry your highness, I apologize
for not bowing” The boy snorted.
“Please, just leave me alone” Simon
Simon is always looking for excuses to be near
Raphael. When he finally finds a suitable excuse, he walks in on Raphael doing
something that Simon would have never thought Raphael would do. He was cooking.
Corazón—His heart. He loves Simon so much it hurts.
His beauty, his optimism, it’s a sea of good and Raphael does nothing but dive
right in. And he is not ashamed, because Simon is a gift. God’s gift, and
sometimes Raphael can’t believe what they have together is real, but when Simon
leans down and kisses him, hands running through each other’s hair skimming
down backs, and gripping hips, Raphael lives in every sense and knows that this
Raphael sighs, shaking his head more to himself than
anything else as he reaches down for Simon and pulls the other boy up again.
“That will be all for today” he pulls the bottom of his tank top up, using the
material to wipe away sweat, unaware of Simon’s gaze tracking over his abdomen.
“You did good but not good enough, even if you pinning me down was kind of hot”
The really annoying thing to me is that making Lena a villain could actually be an awesome storyline if I trusted the CW to do it right. Like we all hope and pray that she doesn’t become evil and I’m also right there with you, but just hear me out.
If they insisted on doing it, it could actually be a really compelling and interesting story. We know that Lena and Kara are genuinely friends (at least with the information that we have). Lena takes time out of her day to spend it with Kara, even though she has absolutely no obligation to do so. And easily could just not do it and I doubt Kara would find that strange at all. They’re not the same thing; rookie reporter for CatCo and CEO of L-Corp. Not that same thing. Lena could have easily kept their relationship purely professional (maybe friendly acquaintances), even after 2x12 and into 2x15. She throws a wrench in her mother’s plans far too often (in my opinion) for it to be a set up between the two Luthor women from the start. Kara just asked for a way to track/find missing aliens and Lena went and found where her mother was hiding, against Lillian’s plans. She even wanted to “redirect” Lena somewhere else as we know. I think there is enough evidence to say that Lillian and Lena aren’t on the same side at this time. (Watch, the CW is going to prove me wrong because the end of the season just because they want to fuck with me).
So if we look at Kara and Lena’s relationship, it’s one of genuine friendship on both sides. Plus, consider that Kara finally has a friend that (canonically) doesn’t have feelings for her and is available whenever she needs to talk. Lena doesn’t push Kara, ever. I’d guess that Kara could go to Lena for advice about Supergirl stuff, asking in a round about way, and Lena would just try to help best she could (2x04). They’ve got a friendship that I’m actually jealous of.
So imagine if at the end of the season something happened to make Lena turn evil. I would hazard a guess it would have to do with the lack of trust of her, even though she’s literally done everything she can to save the day multiple times. I think that can breed resentment over time. Maybe Kara accidentally doubts her like she did in 2x12 when Lena asks her if she thinks that’s something she’d actually do and Kara hesitates.
So move into S3 with Lena being the villain. Everyone; J’onn, Alex, Winn (god knows why because he’s the son of a supervillain too like Jesus Christ man. You’re living proof that you aren’t your family), Maggie, James, Mon-El (if he survives into S3, assuming he will here) would be against Lena. She’s the villain. But that’s easy for people that never trusted her and always found something wrong with her. But for Kara, who had struck a real and deep friendship with Lena would be torn over bringing down a villain and loyalty and love for a friend. I think you could look at how Kara interacted with Astra for a similar dynamic. Obviously not the same because yeah. But similar in many regards.
And I’d imagine that Lena would also have a similar inner struggle in a way. Especially if she knows/found out that Kara was Supergirl. Maybe that is what pushed her over the edge even. Finding out that Kara lied to her for so long. But Kara is her only friend in National City and I think one of her only real, genuine friends in her life, ever. She would want to figure out how to stop but not knowing how. Espeically when she believes that no one cares about her. That she’s just doing what everyone expects of her because it’s so much easier. She’s been so worn down over the last few years that she’s just tired.
Imagine that despite what everyone says about Lena, Kara never would give up on her friend. She would fight to stop whatever Lena’s evil master plan was, but she would never stop trying to convince her friend that there were people that believed in her. That believed she was good. Making S3 about friendship and having Kara explore what it means to love someone, in a completely platonic way (not sarcasm). And really about the idea that Kara Danvers can be just as much of a hero as Supergirl, just in different ways.
So yeah, making Lena a villain would not be the end of the world. If you could trust the CW to make the right choices with the direction of how they do it. But since it’s the CW, basically don’t make her evil. Because I know you’ll find some way to fuck it up.
if you value your life, do not fight anakin. he probably deserves it, but you might die, so i wouldn't recommend.
he's gone through enough shit, why do you even want to fight him? i guess if you really need to, just know that there's no way you will ever win, but he won't kill you unless you're an immediate threat. just don't hurt him, please, he does not deserve any more hardships.
why would you fight ahsoka? do you like beating up innocent padawan ladies who have never done you any wrong? plus, anakin will probably gut you.
literally do not fight rex. he is completely innocent and has experienced too much sadness for one very short clone lifetime, please do not fight him. plus he will fuck you up, i mean have you seen this boy??? like anakin probably won't come after you but it's because he knows he doesn't need to.
please fight barriss. you know exactly why. just do it! fight her! she deserves to have her ass kicked immediately.
she'll hand you your ass and probably kill you, but if you want to fight her, then i guess?? sure???
DO NOT FIGHT SATINE. you will win, but at what cost? AT WHAT COST???? plus, obi-wan will kick your ass.
he's a great politician, but he's also as useful in a fight as a tie-dye handbag, so you probably shouldn't fight him. i mean, you'd win, but it wouldn't be satisfying.
she might seem weak and easy to defeat, but she's had like 10 assassination attempts and she's not even thirty yet, nor is she dead. do not fight her. PLUS, anakin would try to kill you if you even looked at her wrong, so like. there's that.
you should probably fight him, but you also really don't want to get on his bad side, but he's also strangely likeable, despite being a literal kidnapping, thieving, smuggling pirate? i dunno, dude. i guess you can fight him, but you should be careful.
i cannot stress how much you should fight palpatine. you'll probably die, but it will be worth it.
I just made very, painfully slow discovery. I should’ve seen it sooner, I seriously should considering the amount of times I’ve spent pining over these two, but it just dawned on me today.
Kageyama and Tsukishima’s initial are reverse of each other.
TK <-> KT
I know it might not be a significant detail, but my shipping heart can’t contain this. It is so obvious yet I just found out about it and I am ashamed of myself. I am ashamed to call myself an avid tsukkikage shipper when this slight detail that could lead me to various of romance cliche plots slipped out of my keen eyes.
I’m sorry if you have noticed this for quite a while and be like ‘why the hell does she just noticed this now’ I know. I’m disappointed in me too.
So yep on Monday I start work experience, which will be for 2 weeks just to start off.
I said yesterday my mum is in hospital, and still is :^( she has bipolar and hasn’t been sleeping so she kinda had an episode and I haven’t seen her yet and probably won’t see her, until she comes home. and that’s if she comes home, it’s all really complicated right now.
it’s just really hard because this is a really scary time in my life?? And she is my bestfriend so not having her here is really really hard to deal with. also because she’s not here I am in the house alone with my dad and we don’t really get along I guess you could say??
but I’m very lucky to have so many siblings that take care of me, and my pets oh gosh!! they are really helping me through this all, and so is my bb Ariel :’^) bless her!!
anyway yep, that’s what’s happening in my life right now. I’m a fucking mess and want to cry all the time but I’m getting through. I hope soon it’ll all be okay and I could have a job maybe.
