booz cruise

anonymous asked:

kate x maggie

Oh boy, okay. This is complicated. I mean it’s basically the first and only real and healthy relationship Kate’s ever had (you think she had one of those on her years long booze-cruise?) so that’s kind of huge for her. So this one’s 9, easily. 

Maggie is stable. Maggie does not allow Kate to wallow in her crap or play the martyr. And Kate desperately needs that. Maggie needs somebody more passionate than she is, more outgoing. Otherwise, the only thing she’d do is work till she’s dead and be as good a mom as she can be. So they make sense. But that’s the thing about Kate and Mags. 

They make sense…but not the most sense.

They can’t ever be a 10, and it’s not because DC Editorial fucked it all up. It’s because Renee Montoya exists. See, when shit gets bad, and I mean end-of-the-world bad, Maggie isn’t the woman you want in that narrative spot.

Because they’d kill her. Next ask gets into this.


Posted the saddest deleted scene The Office ever made to our instagram account. T_T

So this stems from two times when Jim talks about this. 

In “The Secret” - Season 2:

“Hey oh, listen, um, I told Michael on the booze cruise. It’s so stupid. Um, I told Michael that I had had a crush on you when you first started here.”

In “Launch Party” - Season 4:

Jim: Do you remember what you said to me on my first day of work, just before you walked me over to my desk?
Pam: Yeah, enjoy this moment, because you’re never going to go back to this time before you met your desk mate Dwight.

I think it’s generally accepted that both Jim and Pam started working at around the same time, but Pam started before Jim. So hence Pam would still be fairly new there when Jim joined but Pam would still be there long enough to know things like how weird Dwight was. 

I'm so alive for Team the North Remembers rn
  • Sansa: lady stark, over your shit, adventurous eater, practical tactical brilliance
  • Jon: willing to put off his booze cruise in essos for literally just this, big brother mode activated, manbun
  • Brienne: zero fucks left to give, so pure
  • Tormund: 'careless whisper' by george michael, has giants
  • Davos: old sport
  • Melisandre: new lol* (lord of light) who dis, necromancer shit, done w/ the netflix & ice cream for now
  • Podrick: makes killer sandwiches, mostly along for the ride but actually makes it out of every situation alive so that's probably useful
  • Edd: fine

Another deleted scene from ep220 “Drug Testing” with Jim under the jinx. There was a little bit of a subplot with Jim and Brenda Something-from-corporate who we very briefly met on the booze cruise. He called to ask Brenda out when he was stuck in the annex all day in The Carpet. Then Jim left early for a date in Take Your Daughter To Work Day, though he doesn’t say who the date was with, the clues point to Brenda. We’re gonna guess Brenda didn’t call back…


Jim & Pam - “The Secret” (panel version)

“Look, about you and Jim-”
“Oh, no, that’s, you don’t have to.”
“No, I feel it’s my responsibility as your boss-slash-friend.”
“No, really, it’s okay. I know that Jim had, like, a crush on me when he first started. But that was a long time ago, so.”
“It wasn’t that long ago. It was on the booze cruise.”
“Jim had a crush on me on the booze cruise or he told you about it on the booze cruise?”
“Yeah, okay, shut it Michael. I’m done. That’s it. I’m out.”
