better than the original really

Lame adaptations and sequels are always like, “how can Mina go back to her stifling Victorian marriage after her experience with the dark, seductive Dracula??”

Meanwhile, Mina marries her best friend, who she’s known since they were children, who she share common interests with, they build a home together, work as partners, make immense sacrifices for each other, support each other through their traumas.

Guys, a marriage isn’t stifling and restrictive just because two people… get along, I guess?

Feel the bond with your lions, and your fellow pilots,
until five become one unit, and you form Voltron!

YEAH!

12x22 and 12x23: Well...fuck

Am I the only one who actually liked this two-part finale?? 

Let’s start with Who We Are 

  • “Straight Shawshank this bitch” (THAT’S MY DEAN.)
  • Sam and Dean’s talk against the wall
  • “I just followed. Because it was easier than leading.”
  • the FUCKING GRENADE LAUNCHER
  • Sam and Dean’s looks during that whole grenade launcher plan (I mean come on, what was this eye sex??)
  • “Hey lunatic” (kill me. wtf. it was so soft and sweet ohmygod. rip me)
  • Garth is alive and well thank God (as well as Jody and Alex)
  • Sam’s speech (I literally had tears in my eyes. So proud of my baby Sam.)
  • “Our people” (remember when Sam wanted nothing to do with hunting?)
  • “I want you to follow me.” 
  • The way Dean looked at Sam during his speech and at the other hunters after like yep that’s right that’s my baby bro right here and he’s better than you 
  • THAT ENTIRE BROMENT THAT HAD ME IN FUCKING TEARS oh God
  • “I’ll take a jacked up Dean Winchester over any ten other hunters any day.” “You got this.” “You come back.” “Promise.” “Bitch.” “Jerk.”
  • A BROMENT A BITCH/JERK AND A HUG AT THE SAME TIME????
  • Jody and Alex were very cute
  • The old Laurence house with the little music and the nostalgic coloring
  • “Sam…” (his soft voice that he uses when he talks to his little brother just kill me already)
  • Lil’ Dean!
  • “I had to be more than just a brother. I had to be a father and I had to be a mother; to keep him safe. And that wasn’t fair. And I couldn’t do it.”
  • Dean being mad at his mother because of what SAM went through because of her and crying so much while he recalled everything 
  • (When Dean cries, I cry: confirmed.)
  • (All the awards to Jensen Ackles please) 
  • The hunters killing the British without any second thought (aesthetic)
  • The whole base blowing up (included in the aesthetic)
  • Dean and Mary the badass killers as the last thing Ketch sees (it awoke the evil!Winchesters needs in me)
  • Dean’s look when Sam comes back uwu
  • FAMILY HUG (We were blessed.)

Now All Along the Watchtower had less things that I liked but it was still so good, I wasn’t bored for a single second; it was an emotional rollercoaster, I cried and I laughed and I screamed.

  • In the recap, Dean: “We hate them. Us. Together.” (that’s what the show is about)
  • ROWENA :((((( 
  • The AU world was A+ (after the season 10 finale, this was my big hope for season 11)
  • Kelly’s message to her baby (God I don’t like her but it was super touching)
  • Also her painting skills???
  • Crowley who wanted to win and longed for another life
  • Just Crowley (“This is what you do when I’m not here? Type?”)
  • Kelly and Cas were super cute together 
  • The reference to The French Mistake (it killed me)
  • Sam helping Dean get up on his feet and pulling him away from Lucifer
  • CROWLEY :’(((((((((((( and his “Bye boys” (It was so SAD.)
Always

For @ransomweek - March 28: “Remember that time…”

warnings: senior year nostalgia, oblivious pining, excessively soft bromance


“Okay,” Lardo said, taking another swig from the bottle of gin they’d been passing around. “Worst class you’ve ever taken?”

The noise of another kegster, not their last together but frighteningly close to it, thrummed through the floor of the attic. Sometime after midnight Nursey and Chowder had started trying to go through various Haus rules, proper kegstand procedure and ratios for tub juice, with the Tadpoles like Holster and Ransom had done for the past two years, and Ransom had found himself hit with senior-year nostalgia again. It was the kind of weird, happy-sad ache that pulled from under his ribs and made him want to hold onto everything tighter.

He was going to graduate in May. He’d been accepted to med programs at Emory and UPenn, and he was waiting to hear back from a couple other schools. His future wasn’t some nebulous concept any more; it felt real. It felt too close. It was so much easier just to melt back against his bed, next to his two best friends, and to soak up the way their words seemed to roll around the room and fill it up completely.

Holster snorted and leaned against Ransom, reaching around him for the bottle but not moving away once he had it. “International Finance Theory with Professor Lawrence.”

100 reasons to love Daniel James Howell

Phil’s appreciation post

The main point of this is to show that we should love and appreciate him whatever the situation. So without further ado, here are 100 reasons to love Daniel James Howell a.k.a. @danisnotonfire! Feel free to add to the list!

  1. His name is so bloody British and I love it.
  2. He’s British and so has a British accent.
  3. He has the warmest eyes on the planet.
  4. He is a soft squish…
  5. …but also really fucking hot.
  6. He fits perfectly into the “get a man who can do both” scheme in every way possible.
  7. He is patient.
  8. He is really fucking kind, loving and affectionate.
  9. His sarcasm is on point.
  10. He’s the ultimate memelord…
  11. …but he is a human who feels human emotions and has human thoughts.
  12. He has a better origin story than Batman.
  13. He is intelligent.
  14. He is also really fucking creative.
  15. He has a wide range of talents…
  16. …including being a great actor, singing and playing piano.
  17. He is consistently loyal.
  18. He is unapologetic in who he is and what he thinks.
  19. Even when he hated himself, he didn’t try to change himself in anyway.
  20. He is aware of his limitations and has not a drop of arrogance.
  21. His hair always looks good, whether straight, hobbity, in a quiff or just unnecessarily long.
  22. He was the cutest foetus, and is now the cutest man.
  23. He has taught me more about life in less than a year than I’ve learned anywhere else.
  24. He has shown so much wisdom and so many well-thought-out ideas…
  25. …and god knows how many more he has.
  26. Basically he’s the wisest man I’ve ever met at the young age of 25.
  27. He is honest and expressive about who he is.
  28. He has stuck with us since 2009. TWO THOUSAND AND NINE.
  29. He deserves the world, but I don’t remember the last time he asked us or anyone for anything.
  30. He has a great sense of humour.
  31. He is relatable and understands how people think.
  32. He is open to diversity in society and ideals in every topic area.
  33. His best friend is the world’s other leading sweetheart, Philip Michael Lester.
  34. Together they are the sun and the moon (who’s who, I’ll let you decide).
  35. Together they’ve done so much and pushed the boundaries, which include:
  36. - Writing two books full of memories and good-natured banter, which you can tell were made straight from the heart.
  37. - Making a game together.
  38. - Doing an original long-term radio show on BBC Radio 1.
  39. - Writing a script for a full-scale stage show.
  40. - Taking that stage show around the world to meet as many of their fans as possible.
  41. - Making that stage show and its development into two movies.
  42. I literally could go on for hours about what they’ve done together, which is a feat in itself and deserves to be its own reason.
  43. Basically they are YouTube’s Power Duo, as acclaimed by the King of YouTube himself.
  44. They’ve been best friends for over seven years, and roommates for about five (as of the date this post was published).
  45. They are totally identical and yet total opposites.
  46. You get the idea, they are friendship goals is what I’m saying.
  47. He never uses clickbait - all his titles and thumbnails are completely relevant to the video’s content/purpose…
  48. …which is not the same for most YouTubers or internet stars, which makes him even more special.
  49. He has brown hair. (This is a matter of personal preference, but brown hair is hot, okay? Don’t kinkshame me.)
  50. He is a nerd, and nerds are cool.
  51. He encourages weirdness.
  52. He appreciates the art form and subculture that is video-gaming.
  53. He loves and appreciates anime…
  54. …and is generally a massive weeaboo.
  55. He has dimples, really deep ones at that.
  56. His smile lights up a dark room…
  57. …as does his laugh.
  58. While he can be a kinky lil shit, he is also the purest man I’ve ever known.
  59. He has freckles.
  60. His collarbones, thighs and arms are ∞/10 (let’s be real though, everything is).
  61. He understands irony, which in this generation is a necessary life skill.
  62. He has inspired creativity and art.
  63. He has great taste in music.
  64. His obsession with shibes is my aesthetic.
  65. His aesthetic is on point.
  66. He is kind of a devil but also an angel (thought I’d mention this on no. 66).
  67. He’s so affectionate and expressive, you have no idea.
  68. He is never afraid to stand up for who he loves…
  69. …or what he thinks is right.
  70. Basically he cares more about justice than his own reputation, I wish more people were like that.
  71. He is honest.
  72. He is good with animals and loves dogs.
  73. He has saved millions of lives, including mine.
  74. Very few people have achieved the above point at all in history…
  75. …and he did it with just a laptop, a camera and wit…
  76. …and he did it in less than a decade. Tell me he’s not a hero.
  77. He makes an active effort to interact with us by hosting weekly liveshows and responding to our tweets.
  78. He is able to joke about his mistakes and insecurities.
  79. He is able to discuss death and existentialism.
  80. He’s over 6ft tall. (What? Tall people are another one of my kinks. Don’t lie to me, you can relate and you know it.)
  81. He’s brought people together and inspired friendship and love.
  82. He’s really fucking brave.
  83. He isn’t one to kinkshame people.
  84. He calls himself jealous, but was he jealous when Phil won Creator of the Year at the BONCAs? Hell, no. He was happier that Phil won it than he would have been if he himself had won it.
  85. Phil called him up on stage to share the award with him but at the end he still said “Phil Lester, everyone!” and in doing so was still giving Phil full credit.
  86. If he’d won that award, we all know that he would have called Phil up just like Phil did to him.
  87. Basically he’s really fucking selfless.
  88. He’s not afraid to show what he has/feels against society and labels. That takes guts.
  89. He isn’t one to get involved in drama, and when he does it’s for the right reason.
  90. He’s donated thousands of pounds to charity, including 100% of the profits from The Internet Is Here.
  91. He cowrote and featured in a chart-topping single with Phil, The Internet Is Here.
  92. He doesn’t underestimate us, or anyone else.
  93. He doesn’t undervalue us either, he really loves and cherishes us.
  94. He has always persevered, whether dealing with bullying or self-esteem issues or pressure from work/uni.
  95. He is very civilised and cultured.
  96. He has worked very hard on every single project he’s ever engaged, whether it be a BBC documentary or a stage show or just a casual video.
  97. He handles negativity extremely well.
  98. He is the literal antonym of the term ‘sell-out’.
  99. He’s learned not to give a fuck about how people perceive him, which is something many people never learn.
  100. He is everything and more that we could ask of anyone, and is the perfect role model/idol. We need more people like him to exist, and I love him to the bottom of my heart.
  101. 100 reasons doesn’t even begin to cover why we should love Daniel James Howell, but it’s a start.

forgotten-pumpkinpie asked: Hello!! I’m looking for a few super fluffy, cute enough to make you gag but still want more AUs that take place in a coffee shop, library, or book store!! Please and thank you :)

coffee shop aus

library/bookstore aus

  • this project is due tomorrow and i am not even half-done yet, please, please tell me you know something about this topic which can help me???
    • “we’re in a library, you’re literally surrounded with information”
      “please???”
  • i don’t know the first thing about books but i really need a job, so please hire me to help out in your bookstore??
  • this used to be my favourite place as a kid, i stopped coming here for (x) reason but i thought i should pay another visit after (y) years and holy shit you remember me?
    • “what do you mean they’re closing the library down?”
      • yes, we’re going to go on a crazy adventure in order to save this library
  • you always come to this library and i really enjoy talking to you, you also have a really good interest in books which honestly just makes you more attractive
    • i haven’t read any of these books i just wanted an excuse to talk to the cute librarian 
      • i can’t read
  • did you seriously try to steal a book? out of all things you could have stolen, you chose books?
    • “i’m having a bit of an existential/quarter-life crisis okay” 
      “i can tell”
  • you’re always working in the library at the same time i am, we’ve never spoken in person but i can’t help but notice how cute you are and i think i’m either gonna have to make a complaint or talk to you because you’re seriously distracting me from my work
    • “i can’t just throw someone out because their cuteness is distracting you.”
      “why not???”
      • okay, instead of talking to you i left cute notes in the books you were using when you weren’t looking and we’ve been talking like this for months but seriously i think we need to talk to each other in person
  • this is the last copy of the book in the library and i really need this, so sorry but i’m going to be taking this book now
    • “i got here first!”
      “so???”
      • “…no don’t turn the page yet! i’m not finished!”
        “this is ridiculous”
  • did they seriously just ask to be a librarian/work here? when was the last time they read a book?
    • “that is the most in-depth analysis of a book i’ve ever heard, it’s like you know exactly what the author was thinking!”
      “see, i’m not as stupid as you thought, now am i?”
  • i asked your recommendation for what book i should read and you sighed deeply and said, “how could i pick just one?”
    • “… and that’s why i spent my entire afternoon in the bookstore.”
  • you always take books out and never return them and it’s really infuriating, then one day you stopped coming to the library and i haven’t seen you for years. that was until one day you came in with a trunk load of books and a sad smile, you’ve changed so much oh my god. what happened to you??? please tell me!!
    • (alternatively) i was sick and tired of you never returning your books so i said that either you tell me what you’re doing with all these books or i won’t lend you another book
      • “this…this is so much research, i can’t believe you’ve done all this by yourself! what are you going to do with it?”
        “well, hopefully save mankind. or at least get a nobel prize.”
  • we both work in the bookstore and we like to have mini competitions to see who can stack books the fastest, honestly since you joined this is the most fun i’ve had at this job.
    • “stop laughing at me and help me out of this stack of books before i get crushed to death!”
  • Person A and Person B both work at the bookstore. However, Person B doesn’t know the first thing about books and it still baffles Person A, the resident bookworm, how on earth they got this job so easily despite them having no knowledge of books whatsoever. A rivalry breaks out between them as Person A tries to overtake them and gain appreciation from their superior by showing off their book knowledge yet Person B still manages to overachieve, it eventually gets to the point when Person A is threatened to be fired if they can’t be at the same level as Person B. But just before that happens, Person B quits and explains how Person A should be the one receiving the praise and not them.
  • this is really embarrassing but i’m doing my reading for college but i read really slowly so i was wondering if you could read it aloud for me??? 
  • what part of “be quiet, this is a library” don’t you understand? 
    • i don’t care if you’re one of the most charming people i’ve ever met, if you keep disrespecting library rules i’m kicking you out and that’ll be the end of it
  • i am on the edge of a mental breakdown right now and if you don’t get off that computer in a second i am going to kick you off it (or cry really loudly and make it super embarrassing for the both of us)
  • hi, tall cute person, can you get that book for me up there?
    • “you know there was a ladder right?”
      “oh..there was? oh man, i had no idea, haha. yup. definitely had no idea that was right there, right in front of me.”
  • you fell asleep on the desk next to me and your, to be fair extremely light, snoring is really distracting me from my work so i went to wake you up but seeing you asleep is honestly the cutest thing i’ve seen all week and i don’t have the heart to wake you up.
  • i’ve been in here for two hours and i’ve been pretending im doing work but really i’m just working up the nerve to go over and talk to the really friendly (and cute) librarian
    • turns out i was here a lot longer than i expected and now the library’s closing, shit i thought i was prepared but i’M REALLY NOT
      • …was what i just said even words. answer: definitely no… wait, they’re laughing?? this is going way better than i originally thought!!

i really enjoyed writing these so i hope these helped!!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was so amazing. I’ve seen it twice now so I’ve really had a chance to take everything in. The music was amazing and perfectly paced, the colors were so vibrant and the scenery on Ego’s Planet was incredibly beautiful. 

I think my favorite part of the movie though was how much it stressed family and how you can pick who’s your family, that it doesn’t have to be people related by blood. The relationship between Gamora and Nebula was so beautifully expanded and tragic and wonderful. The way Rocket and Yondu handle getting close to others and making difficult choices (Yondu choosing to sacrifice himself and Rocket choosing to leave because he can’t lose anymore friends). The way Drax opens up about his family and straight up says the Guardians are a family, a thought that Gamora agrees with as well. How they all pass baby Groot around and look after him and love him (the Ravagers beating him up was terrible, as was seeing how many people they had tossed into space). Peter coming to terms with what exactly a father can be and can mean. The character development in this movie was just so amazing and made the movie so great.

Honestly, I may like Vol. 2 better than the original. It was really incredible and I love it. I’m excited to see where the third movie goes and to see the Guardians in Infinity War.

This was a really good idea for a distraction lol.

I posted “tell me something that makes you happy” and this were the answers some of you gave me! The post is deleted now so don’t send any asks or requests but if you want a crappy lettering thingy there will be a celebration where you can request it soon! (When I’m free from school)

Thank you: @aesthetically-study @cyan-pinwheel @narglestudies @starrs-from-mars and @hogwartsstudiess for commenting!!

the outfit still fits after all this time :0

anonymous asked:

If you could ship Hera with any person who would it be? Like we talk about shipping the other gods but Hera deserves to have someone better than Zeus, the original fuckboy.

tbh, i don’t really ship her with anyone, i just want her to be happy by herself until she finds someone who won’t fuck her over but there’s also hymenaeus who’s also a god of marriages and I’m pretty sure two marriage gods would have an amazing marriage

How come no one told me how emotional GotG Vol. 2 was going to be???

                        They do not understand. They do not know why we wage this war.
                              Why we cannot stop. Will not stop. Why we will fight and
                                           fight and fight. Until we win… or we die.

                                        And we are not dead yet.
