what if ot4 all got on skype together and they were all grinning and laughing and talking about how unbelievable everything is and about how floored they are and then one of them was like, “hey we should celebrate………. by going on a lad’s holiday” and then the other three were like “HELL YEAH” and then they all booked flights to some tropical location and now they’re gonna be ghost for 2 weeks because they’re on holiday together but then in 3 weeks they’re gonna post a bunch of pictures of them all hanging out on a beach somewhere and then they’re gonna post a video of them smiling and covered in sand saying thank you again and then the video will get all shaky because one of them will divebombe the others into a group hug and we’ll see about 3 seconds of the hug before the person filming dropped the phone into the sand

Ian Cusick is so good and Paige Turco is so good and they’re so good together, and a lot of it is because they’re adversarial, you know?  We see sparks between them because there’s conflict in those scenes.  They’re both intelligent and … they’re both arguing for their perspectives all the time, and eventually that chemistry bleeds into the writing …  And so the answer to your question is, I really can’t remember when I decided that, yeah, that should happen, but I mean, I see the same thing that you see … It makes total sense, by the way.  They’re both awesome, and they’re both passionate and compassionate, and I think she’s really taught him how to be a better man.  That’s what we all want out of our significant others.
—  Jason Rothenberg answers my question about the origins of Kabby from today’s Meta Station interview

anonymous asked:

Not talking about Caryl here but the show in general, is it just me or is the entire negan story and rising up to go to war just really boring? Boring because it's so predictable, there's no question TF will win, no question that Carol will return, no question that Rick will survive and go on making speeches into oblivion, the whole of 7b is just filler to a few nice fight scenes at the end, nothing deeper than "hey if we work together we can fight evil!" When did TWD get so basic?

Honestly, Caryl is the only thing that makes me stay with this show. The scene effects are terrible, the plots are terrible, and it speaks for itself that the Caryl scenes were the best of the episode, because it’s what Twd should be about, HUMAN CONNECTIONS. Not just negan negan negan, Rick being terrible but everyone praising him and the next cool Walker. Like, really… with all its flaws, I miss season ½/3 so much
The bests episodes of season 4 and 5 were when they dealt with the emotional baggage all of them carry around.

Season 6 and 7 suck so much cause they sidelined that over… some weird guy in a leather jacket who speaks into infinity plus cool walkers.

Also, I think they need to invest the money they have in better effects and start dealing with stuff that will add to the emotional level of the relationships instead of taking the focus away from it. What about the next villain being actually some natural disaster? What about something like people betraying each other and communities working together to rebuild the world and showing this progress. What about dealing with someone imune? They have soooo many options they can explore, but they don’t leave the mediocre field, it’s sad.

We need more power hours and the whole fandom voting, like this afternoon (for eurokru). I think the sk*m fandom is actually really dedicated and they'll win if we don't organize fast and vote continuously. like all the blogs + twitter need to get together otherwise, I don't see us winning unfortunately.

That’s the thing, we need more organization. During night hours that Amerikru is not voting Eurokru should be doing it and vice-versa but also we have to consider that not every Clexa is voting because E sucks. So we gotta vote as much as we can w the ppl we have.


so my best friend is divorcing her husband because she says that he doesn’t read the Bible enough with her.

that could make more sense if her religion was a really big deal to her and if she were a religious person.

but shes not.

yes, she got baptized but that was a long time ago and she doesn’t do anything for herself spiritually anymore.

so the fact that they’re getting a divorce for that reason and that reason alone after just a year and a half is really really dumb to me. especially since they were together for like four years before that, with that amount of time under your belt you should know everything about each other.

I think she’s just trying to get out of her marriage because she wants to go out and party and date and everything again because that’s literally all she’s been doing since he moved out. he’s done absolutely nothing for her religion since he left, except leave it.

and you know, I’m trying to be supportive and everything because she’s my friend but I don’t see the reasoning in it and I think it’s really stupid and the only thing that it’s done for her is make her emotions go crazy, caused her to come off of her meds, and put her in situations that have caused her a lot of pain and stress.

anonymous asked:

Wait what does chris mean?

he’s basically saying we should respect trump supporters because we all need to stand together at times like this. like…why would i respect people who think that being straight and white make you better than everyone else.

anonymous asked:

You certainly make it sound very exclusive by deciding who is allowed to use which adjectives and nouns. (Because just because it stems from an acronym doesn't mean that the adjective and noun will have the exact meaning of the letters in the acronym.) Maybe think about the effect your word nitpicking has?

it’s not nitpicking, it’s just important to think of the letters as distinct identities, and saying that the letters stand for something should not be a controversial thing to say. trans people have unique struggles that deserve visibility. lesbians, gay men, bisexual people all have distinct experiences and are intrinsically tied to their identities. not everyone has chosen to reclaim the q slur, so not everyone identifies with the Q. the expanded acronym includes a P, an A, and an I, for more distinct and unique experiences. the acronym exists because the oppression comes from the same fundamental root cause, and so we band together, but it doesn’t mean that our individual experiences and identities no longer exist or can’t be separated from one another. we can have intersectionality while still having distinction. the letters have meanings, and the way we use the letters should take into account their specific meanings.

I will never be ashamed of being a 1d fan, all the friends i’ve made and lost because of this band, the people who helped me through a terrible time, the people i helped through a terrible time. its always been more than just being a fan, it was being apart of family. i don’t know if the boys know how many people they’ve saved and brought together but they should know that they did something great to a great mass of people.

You know what else I’d love to randomly see? Ladybug and Chat Noir heading into an akuma battle during an ongoing argument. The whole time they’re working together they’re just bickering about something stupid and completely ignoring the poor akuma victim’s rage.

Chat Noir: *dodging attacks* And I’m saying we SHOULD be allowed to give each other Christmas presents. Honestly buginette, I love you, but do you really think we’re going to figure each other’s identities out by some cheap gift?
Ladybug: Okay, first of all, you are NOT getting me a cheap gift, because I wouldn’t get YOU a cheap gift. *launches Chat at the victim to get their possessed item* Second of all we should be ruling out even the smallest thing that could give each other away!
Chat Noir: *is knocked away by the akuma victim* So you’re saying that if I gave you a nondescript diamond necklace you’d be able to figure out who I am?
Ladybug: HOW is a diamond necklace nondescript, Chat Noir?? How many people can afford a diamond necklace???
Chat Noir: More people than you think, Ladybug!
Ladybug and Chat Noir: SHUT UP!
Akuma Victim: *cowers*
Ladybug: *snatches the item herself and breaks it over her knee* And another thing—!
Chat Noir: *throws arms in the air as she purifies the butterfly*
Hawk Moth: …wtf just happened?

Adrinette Bonus Round 

Adrien: Hey Marinette, can I ask you something?
Marinette: Sure.
Adrien: Would you call a diamond necklace nondescript?
Marinette: *scowls* NO, I WOULDN’T. *stomps off*
Adrien: What the heck is her problem?? *annoyed*

The fucked up truth is that not everything happens for a reason. We sometimes make the wrong decisions and we’re forced to live with them for the rest of our lives. And I know that I should live with mine.

But still, on the loneliest nights, I look up at the stars and I stop and smile. Because although we now walk different paths, although I know that years will pass and we still won’t be together; I’ll always remember that for a brief, fraction of a moment, against all the odds, our stars crossed. And that will always, always be enough.

—  LA // excerpt from a book I’ll never write

this holiday season, i’m eternally grateful that alicia and bob knew about kent, because that means they’ve been in jack’s corner in every way since then

i’m eternally grateful they told jack explicitly, or at least acted effusive enough, that he truly thinks they “love the idea that [they’re] together”

i’m eternally grateful that jack is now 100% himself with his parents, can love bitty out in the open within most of their circle, and is thinking about coming out to all the people who he thinks should know

he’s in the nhl, he’s got an a, he’s in love, and he’s out to most of the people who matter to him. what a year for jack zimmermann! bless us every one

Rhys looks haunted.

“Who’s going to tell them?”

He gets nothing but avoided eye contact and silent sips of coffee in return.

“I am completely serious. Someone has to say something and it really shouldn’t be me.”

He had thought that all nine of them of them taking a weekend together in the cabin would be fun–and it had been, until he’d been kept up very late by the half-muffled sounds coming from Elain and Lucien’s room. Not of sex, per say; the cabin provides what soundproofing it can, and it should be enough for all the couples to enjoy themselves without bothering each other, but Elain and Lucien had been doing something… loud. Repeatedly.

Cassian is grinning like a maniac, amused beyond all reason. “Okay, I know Rhys is uncomfortable because he’s never done anything that actually qualifies as kinky, but does anyone else think this is hilarious?”

“I object to that profiling of my sex life, Cassian.”

“You’ve never done anything weirder with Feyre than a blindfold,” Cassian says, eyebrows raised, “I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that, I’m just saying.”

“A blindfold is very kinky,” Rhys asserts, affronted. Mor snorts and he ignores it, focused on Cassian. “What have you two done that’s so much more exciting?”

Nesta, sitting straight as a queen, speaks before Cassian can. “If you answer that question in front of all our friends, Cas, you will never get to do any of those things ever again.”

“We’re off topic,” Feyre announces, setting down her mug of tea decisively. “The question at hand here is who is going to tell Elain and Lucien that spanking is off-limits during their time here.” Silence. She shrugs. “I think it should be Nesta.”

“I’ll do it if you want, but it won’t go well,” Nesta replies flatly. “I have a hard time not slapping the smirk off Lucien’s face on a good day.”

Cassian brandishes a spoonful of oatmeal. “Well, apparently he’s into that, so–”

“Why not Cassian?” Rhys says pointedly, “Since, as he tells us, he’s so knowledgeable about the whole area.”

“That would mortify Elain,” Feyre says, keeping them firmly on track. “It should probably be one of the girls.” Amren, in the corner, lowers her mug of blood to look less than enthused. “It should be Mor or I,” Feyre amends.

Mor gives an casual little shrug. “The noise didn’t bother me, to be honest.”

Rhys frowns in disbelief. “Surely you heard it.”

“We did.”

She does not elaborate, and Rhys suddenly finds it suspicious how quiet Azriel’s been, and how he’s not making eye contact. Cassian seems to have the same thought as he glances between the two of them.

“Mother’s tits,” Cassian says, gaping. “You guys got off on it, didn’t you?”

They don’t respond, but Mor reddens incriminatingly. Cassian’s eyes go wide and he throws his head back in a howl of laugher, over Nesta’s protestations.

Amren is surveying all of them with disdain. “I have been present for some truly insipid conversations between the lot of you but I must say, this one is exceptionally awful.”

“Now THAT’S what I mean by kinky, Rhys” Cassian proclaims, wiping tears from his eyes. “Fucking to the sounds of another couple’s pain play. Cauldron. I’m so proud.”

Rhys looks long-suffering as he turns to Feyre, takes her hand, and kisses it sweetly. “I’m so sorry, darling,” he intones dramatically. “I’ve exposed you to a nest of perverts.”

“Who’s a pervert?” Elain asks with a giggle, choosing this moment to sweep into the kitchen, bright-eyed and with a sated-looking Lucien in her wake. “Are we talking about Cassian again?”

But the whole room has gone silent. Elain falters, looking from one awkward face to the next. “What’s wrong?”

When no one answers, it’s Amren who gets up and says baldly to the two of them, “Everyone from here to Velaris could hear whatever it was you were doing last night. It made these fools uncomfortable, largely. Do with that information what you will.” In the shocked silence following, she puts her empty mug in the sink, unhurried, and heads for the door. “I’m going for a walk far away from this nonsense. If anyone needs me, you are encouraged to reconsider.”

The door slams shut behind her.

“Oh,” Elain says faintly.

Myths about Soul Mates

1. The relationship should be natural, easy and uncomplicated: The truth is that all relationships take time, effort, commitment and energy. You need to make time for each other, to do fun things together, to work on communication, and to learn to negotiate and compromise.

2. The relationship should be conflict free: Because we are each individual and unique we all disagree with others at times, so conflict is natural, and not to be feared. In fact, conflict can force us to confront our differences, and to grow as individuals, and as couples too.

3. Soul mates are romantic: Real life is not the movies, and love can be expressed in countless different ways, and still be genuine. Look out for all the signs that show your partner cares, and don’t be disappointed if they’re not “the stereotype”. Don’t force them to be something that is maybe nor their style.

4. You should always see things the same way and have the same opinions, outlooks and beliefs: You both have different backgrounds and have individual brains so you’re going to sometimes differ in the way you look at life. That needn’t be a problem – you don’t want to be clones.

5. My soul mate will always like and love me: Consideration, respect and a concern for your partner are symptoms of a loving relationship. But being rude and disrespectful or irresponsible are not endearing qualities that build relationships. Instead, we need to give to get – as it’s not “all about me”.

I’m a feminist because...

I’m a feminist because everyone should be.

Growing up, my parents would always tell me to be properly dressed around my brothers. Never mind that they were walking around in short boxer briefs, it was me who had to be presentable. I was the girl, after all.

In school, I was always taught that the way I dressed affected a boy’s education. I was taught that the slight peek of my shoulder was enough to get me sent to the head office. It was much too distracting, because after all, a boy’s education had to be more important than a girl’s. At least, that was what they were teaching me.

This is why I’m a feminist.

I’m a feminist because it is 2017, and when I talk about how unfair it is that a professional athlete gets to walk away from the accusation of raping a girl without a single ding to their career, I’m some sort of radical that needs to calm down. Because that poor girl’s life will never be the same, but said athlete’s career is perfectly intact.

I’m a feminist because my aunt says things like, “Oh, those feminists, they just need to shave their armpits and get over it.” Because somehow the grooming of my body hair has everything to do with the rights I’m fighting for.

I’m a feminist because people still think you must have a vagina to be considered a woman.

I’m a feminist because I am 20 years old, and when I tell people I’m not sure I want to have kids, they look at me like I just defied all womankind.

I’m a feminist because when mothers choose to work rather than stay at home with their children, they aren’t doing “enough.”

I’m a feminist because when fathers choose to stay at home with their children rather than work, they somehow aren’t as “manly.”

I’m a feminist because parents still won’t let their sons play with Barbies.

I’m a feminist because young boys are taught that crying is bad. Showing emotion is bad, better to bottle it up and never feel. If you cry, you’re a girl, and no one wants to be a girl.

I’m a feminist because when my family talks about the Women’s March that happened yesterday, they say things like, “What’s protesting going to change?” and “They’re honestly just wasting their time. Nobody’s going to listen to them.” Never mind that the country we are living in found its freedom through protesting—No Taxation Without Representation. But I suppose that’s okay. It was men protesting then.

I’m a feminist because when my aunt saw a picture of a man marching with women yesterday, she snorted and said, “What’s he doing there? Doesn’t he have something better to do?” Her seven year old son was sitting next to her.

I’m a feminist because a highly qualified politician lost the presidential election to a less than mediocre businessman who based his campaign on misogyny, racism, bigotry, and slander. Because this country would rather see an over privileged, racist, homophobic, white man, whose years of experience sums up to zero, in office rather than a woman whose qualifications are more than his will ever be. Because I somehow have to have years of experience before I can even get my first job, but Donald Trump can get sworn into office without a single day of political experience.

I’m a feminist because the President of the United States speaks vilely of women and all minorities, and I’m the terrible one for disliking him.

I’m a feminist because I get made fun of for being a feminist.

I’m a feminist because I want the next generation of girls to live in a better world than mine.

I’m a feminist for these reasons and so many others.

I’m a feminist because everyone should be.


The Oracle and the King should stand together always…for it is they who safeguard our world. (insp)


Ok, let’s talk about this (AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL) scene.

Many of Malec fans said this Malec scene was:

  1. “not good” (sorry, I don’t know how to define it) because Magnus didn’t show Alec his cat eyes, before having their first time,
  2. and forced because Alec didn’t respect Magnus’ feelings by wanting to take the next step in their relationship.

So I think…

About the first point, guys, we all know the tv show is different enough from the books so we should expect anything from the show (different situations,  events, etc..)

About point 2… at first, I thought this Malec moments was… not forced but, maybe, a little bit rushed because they haven’t been in a relationship for long time and this because of many issues (finding Jace, defeating Valentine, protecting the Institute by demons’ attack…) so they had not time enough to stay together and have a moment for themselves, and Magnus said this to Alec too (2x06).

Originally posted by im-malec-trash

So they finally had their first date and Alec becomes aware of the 17.000 Magnus’ lovers. By here, he feels a bit uncomfortable about this situation but, at the end, he understands that it doesn’t metter how many people Magnus has been with because they are here and now, so he decides to pursue their relationship.

In 2x07, Magnus realizes how much he really loves Alec, who give to him a gift (without he needed a particular event). Magnus also realizes Alec is really different from all his old lovers so he feels so close to him that he want to enjoy every single moment of his life with him.

Originally posted by alexanderbaens

For this reason, when Alec seems to rush into this, taking their relationship to the next step in such a short time, Magnus feels worried about it because it’s like they have not fully enjoyed all the moments spent together (Magnus is immortal so he lived for many years, centuries and for this reason he thinks that it’s a bit rushed), also because he is worried he could lose him after this “next step”. (This can be seen in his eyes in GIF 3 when Alec starts to push him unbuttoning his shirt: it’s like he thinks “I don’t wanna lose you”)

So when Alec says “You have nothing to worry about. I want this”, I thought, at first, not that Alec doesn’t respect Magnus’ feelings…. but almost (?).

But then, on second thought, I really understand that it wasn’t like this.

Originally posted by smilefortheliving

* Alec is a particular character (introvert, a person who used to follow the rules to not wrong or make mistakes and a guy ashamed of what he really is, even if only at the beginning, who has learned to accept himself and his feelings), so I understand that this is a big step for him and he decides to do it with Magnus (!). *

So this is a very important thing to consider. And Magnus understands this. He knows this is important for Alexander and so this is why he let Alec kiss him and let it happen. (GIF 4)

I don’t know about you guys but, I think this love story is made very well and both, Harry and Matt, interpret their own characters at best!
They are so great and I’d like them to have a never-ending (love) story!

I love this screencap for several reasons. 

  • They’re pouting
  • They’re pouting because Allura fucking throw green go at Pidge.
  • Pidge’s face screams: you dare to mess up with me bitch? bring it on. 
  • Keith. Looks. So. Pissed. Why you dare to mess up with Pidge, Allura? Pidge is the darling of Voltron and you should know that already. 
  • They’re pouting
  • Keith says, “Pidge go loose”, and then he fucking tries to attack the princess like can this guy chill.
  • They’re both amazing together and I hope we get to see more of their friendship in second season, all I’m saying.
