bill is coming

anonymous asked:

Do you think that in the Familiar AU there's a in-universe Twilight expy novel series that Mabel reads and states that there are similarities to Dipper and Bill's relationship? Except one problem: They don't follow the rules of those paranormal romance and DO NOT act like those characters in those books she read among other things.

Bill’s complaint: Not a single person burns anything in this! 

Dipper’s complaint: I fell for nothing, ever, not now, not for all of eternity. Bill couldn’t ever trick me into…. that. Or anything else.

No demon ever just…. gets gooshy inside like that, when they have power over a human. No human is suddenly going to be glad about the Incredibly Gross things a demon would do, given that power. That Human was too inhuman, and uninteresting to anyone - no power, not even attractive? And that demon was as mushy as a rotten apple and as sharp as a sack full of bricks. The whole relationship was poorly written, they say. Bill says it was clearly made by someone who’d never dealt with a demon. Dipper argues that the human was just as bad at being a human, and - for once - they’d agree on all points..

The complaint that they would both have - and never say in front of the other - is how the hell did it end up like that. For things to end up even remotely close, you have to fight for it, and someone - hell, both of them - get screwed over, you have to compromise.

Both judge it 1/10, totally unrealistic. Bill burns the book, and Dipper, in a minor show of solidarity for once, roasts a couple of marshmallows over it.

(He does not give either to Bill)

Prayer please

I have $150 to my
Name and my taxes won’t go through for 3-16 weeks and I may lose my job. I had to pay $300 last week for a surgery and even then I needed help. I’m screwed and stressed. I’m behind on my rent, phone bill coming up, groceries. I’m making no money at work, I can’t find another job, I can’t drive. I’m utterly useless. Or rather I feel useless.
We aren’t supposed to worry about these things yet I’m anxious like crazy. I’ve thought about setting up a gofund me but that seems fruitless and I’m too afraid to do that. I just need prayer and a miracle. I’m really sick over this

he didnt think she’d get this far

inspired by this kinda

Is no one going to talk about the scene at the end of Beauty and The Beast (2017) where everyone is turning into “antiques”? It starts with Lumiere crying over Plumettes motionless body & I’M SHOOK! GARDEROBE & CADENZA REACH FOR EACH OTHER FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FOREVER & THEN THEY SLOWLY FADE AWAY. & Then Mrs. Potts is looking for Chip & then she freezes & Chip almost crashes to the ground?!?!?! MY SOUL LEFT MY DAMN BODY!! And then Cogsworth says to Lumiere “It’s been an honor serving with you my friend?” WHAT THE HELL?!?! THAT WAS TRAUMATIZING!! DISNEY WHY DO YOU DO THESE THINGS WITH MY HEART; I FELT MY CHILDHOOD DIE!!

Fancy dinner dates spent pocketing breadsticks and silverware. I give it twenty minutes tops before they either get kicked out or decide on skipping the tab.

ain’t it fun.mp4

(To clarify on the song choice… I kinda imagine the lyrics as Ford’s more negative thoughts towards himself- especially as Weirdmageddon happens, since he fully believes it’s all his fault. I chose this song mainly because I saw a lot of parallels between some of the lyrics and Ford’s experiences- especially some of the mistakes he made. And also, it’s hella catchy and has a good beat. That’s all. No hate on Ford, you all should know by now that I love the man XD) 

  • Steven Moffat: Bill being gay only comes up when it’s relevant.
  • The Pilot: For instance, when she randomly tells a story about a crush, seconds into the episode.
  • The Pilot: When someone makes a remark about guys.
  • The Pilot: When a love story starts to develop.
  • The Pilot: ...oh, that's ALSO this week's plot.
  • The Pilot: ...AND the resolution of the episode.
  • The Pilot: Travelling with the Doctor, she might meet Heather again.
  • Steven Moffat: Like I said, only when it's relevant.

Over 8,000 Flint residents could lose their homes if they don’t pay their water bills

  • The Flint water crisis isn’t over: Residents of the Michigan city are still cautioned against drinking water from their taps without filtering it. 
  • According to NBC25 News, however, over 8,000 people could lose their homes if they don’t pay their water bills in coming weeks.
  • “I got scared, for probably the first time since this all started this actually scared me,” Melissa Mays, a Flint mother and activist, told NBC25. 
  • On Friday, she was notified that she had until May 19 to pay an outstanding $900 water bill, or the government would place a tax lien — a federal claim — on her home.
  • According to NBC25, the city recently notified many Flint residents that it would be shutting off their water if they didn’t pay for water, a move that generated about $3 million last month. 
  • Officials hope the threat of liens could net as much as $6 million in revenue. Read more (5/4/17)

A Study in Hypocrisy #1

Or why the Avengers’ relationship to Tony was unhealthy at best, Steve isn’t fit to be a leader, and why I’m Team Iron Man to the end.


WHY STEVE ISN’T FIT TO BE A LEADER

While the Civil War dispute between Tony and Steve might have started because of the Accords, it very quickly turned personal for Steve. He put each and every one of his “teammates” in danger for the sake of one man (more about that later), and even though I love Bucky and everything (I really do!), Steve was extremely dumb about the entire situation. In fact, I don’t think he could have gone about it in the worst way. 

He could have gone to “rescue” Bucky in disguise—God knows that, with his serum and brute force, he certainly could have done exactly what he ended up doing— but he went instead with the American flag all over himself. He didn’t stop to consider the implications, the possible consequences or bulldozing into a foreign country and engaging in a car chase in the middle of a populated city. He didn’t even stop to consider that there was no guarantee at all that Bucky was innocent. 

He could have, you know, talked to Tony. Tony, who has the political experience and the material means and influence to get Bucky the best help there is. Tony, who’s been playing this game for so long, who knows how to get what he wants, who to go to, how to formulate things. Tony, who would have been his most precious ally. 

And he was. Before he found out about his betrayal. Tony negotiated so hard to make sure no one would get hurt. After the Berlin disaster, he managed to get the UN (that’s 117 countries!) to agree to make the past 24 hours legal and to get Bucky to a facility where he would get the best help for his triggers, help that of course Tony himself would be paying for, because let’s be real, the Avengers are funded by Tony at this point, which is yet another thing that doesn’t sit well with me, but I’ll come back to it. 

Back to why Steve isn’t fit to be a leader: the essence of a leader is that they are supposed to do just that. Lead. But to do that, they need to be fair and treat their men equally. They need to be able to put aside their personal feelings and look at situations objectively. Because their duty is to protect their men and have their back, just like they will have his. 

A leader leads, sure. But they must know when to listen, too, and defer to somebody with greater expertise than themselves. In that case, Tony obviously knows better than he does, if only because he read the damn papers. That’s also something that doesn’t sit well with me regarding the rest of Team Cap. Not one of them paused to read the Accords. Hell, Scott had no clue what the hell was going on. He heard “jump,” and he did.

Yet, here comes Steve, putting the lives of not two, not three, but five (six, if you count Sharon) people at risk, all for one man. He drags in Clint and Scott with no regards to their families and personal situations, and all the while keeps information to himself. Do you think Sam knows that he could have avoided prison and exile? Do you think any of them know about Tony’s deal? Do you think Scott actually knew what was going on? Hell no! Because Steve is calculating enough that he won’t lose manpower to such a pesky thing as compromise. 

How about Steve’s constant habit of putting the blame on Tony’s shoulders? “You did that when you signed”? What the fuck is wrong with you? You’re the one who keeps refusing to compromise! 

Steve never treated Tony as an equal. In fact, none of them did. (Again, more on that later.) But the thing is that when it came to a life-altering secret that affected both his teammate and “friend,” and his childhood friend, Steve decided that it was his right to keep that information from both parties, which. 

NO. Being “friends”—and I use the term loosely—with Howard doesn’t give Steve the right to such a decision. This is a traumatic event for Tony, something that affects personally and directly. He had a right to know. And as it has been demonstrated in previous movies that his capacity for forgiveness is immense, he would have had the time to process the information and the Siberia disaster never would have happened. 

Furthermore and finally, Steve Rogers was never actually a captain. The title was just for show, a tool for propaganda when he was sent on a tour to sell war bills. All of his training comes from that short bootcamp for potential serum candidates, nothing more. He’s not actually part of the army, or a ranked officer. The only reason they let him keep the title was because he’d been lucky enough to bring back the 107th when he disobeyed orders, and then proved useful enough to both war efforts and morale. 

Steve Rogers is not a leader. A leader treats everyone equally and gives respect before expecting it. A leader does not keep secrets from his men to serve his own agenda. A leader does not leave a man behind in a freezing, deserted landscape with no way of calling for help. 

If anything, Tony’s the leader of the Avengers. Why? Ask yourselves the following questions: 

  • Who feeds the Avengers? 
  • Who houses the Avengers? 
  • Who clothes the Avengers?
  • Who arms the Avengers? 
  • Who handles their PR? 
  • Who pays for the destruction they leave behind?
  • On the battlefield, who has a global view of everything that’s going on? 
  • Who is so smart that they can predict and analyze battle scenarios, and adapt to the unexpected in a flash? 
  • Who’s considerate enough to leave their former teammate to his retirement because he’s just that, retired with his family?
  • Who cares about everyone equally and would give everything to protect them all? Who goes above and beyond to provide them with everything they need? 
  • Who has the political experience required to handle their supervisors and foreign policy?

That’s right. Tony Stark. 

Not Steve Rogers.
