bridesmaids set

  • Theo: I was thrown into the Great Lake, but I'm back
  • Draco: Oh, shit.
  • Theo: Yeah, "oh shit." Took a hard, hard, violent fall. Kind of pinballed down. Hit a lot of railings, broke a lot of shit. I'm not going to say I survived, I'm going to say I thrived. I met the Giant Squid down there. And I swear to Merlin, that squid looked not at me, but into my soul, into my goddamn soul, Draco. And he said, "I'm saving you Theo." Not with his mouth, but he said it, I'm assuming, telepathically.

Rating: K

Trigger Warnings: None unless you count pregnancy and weddings as triggers.

Written for:

Your friends stepped back away from the mirror so that you could take your first look at your wedding dress. You couldn’t believe that in just half an hour you would be Mrs. Spencer Reid. The girls all smiled as you look at your own reflection. You couldn’t have asked for a better set of bridesmaids. Your new friends, JJ, Penelope, and Emily, had all agreed to be a part of your wedding. You picked your own sister, Natalie, to be your maid of honor.

A cynical look crossed your mother’s face as she said, “The dress is perfect, but did you really have to choose Converse?”

“Yes, mom. Converse are Spencer’s favorite shoes, and besides, I needed something blue,” you respond.

Your knee length dress allowed you to perfectly flaunt the royal blue Converse you had picked out for your wedding. Spencer had opted for Converse as well, though you both thought it would look better for him to wear the Converse in the classic black.

You hear a knock at the door and your dad calls in, “(Y/N), it’s time to get in place!”

The next hour was a complete blur to you. You overwhelmed by the butterflies in your stomach, but it all calmed down when you saw Spencer waiting for you at the end of the aisle. The moment you saw him, you broke out in a huge grin. He smiled back at you as he wiped the tears of joy and love from his eyes.

You didn’t really hear anything the pastor had to say. You both recited your vows and the words ‘I do’ fell on your ears.

At the appropriate time, Spencer dropped your hands and pulled you toward him with his hands on your waist. Fireworks exploded in your mind as they always did when your lips connected. You exited the chapel together has husband and wife to spend a few private moments together before your reception.

*le time skip*

You and Spencer enter the center of the dance floor to have your first dance as husband and wife. You had been working with him on his dancing abilities since the day after he proposed. The dance was flawless, and you were so proud of your now husband for making it through.

As the song ended, the DJ announced, “Now before we have everyone else join the dance floor, would you please direct your attention to the screen? The bride has a surprise for her new husband and family.”

Spencer turned around with you still in his arms to face the screen. A simple picture with a date six months into the future was illuminating the screen. That simple picture was an ultrasound of your three month old child.

Spencer looked down at you and said, “Really?”

You blink back tears and say, “Yes, baby. I’m three months pregnant. That’s our baby.”

Unable to put his excitement into words, he pulls you in for a kiss before picking you up and spinning you in circles.  

  • Ginny: [the women are discussing bridal shower ideas] We should throw some ideas around. See if anyone else has a theme they have in mind, or something they'd been thinking of.
  • Luna: What about a creature themed shower? And we all come dressed as our favorite magical creature?
  • Pansy: That, and I'll just snowball on top of that, also Fight Club. Female fight club. We grease up, we pull in. Granger doesn't know, so it's, "Surprise! We're going to fight!" We beat the shit out of her. She's not going to forget that.
Paul Feig’s “Other Space” Premieres on Yahoo Screen April 14

By Ian Moffitt, Senior Director of Programming, Strategy and Acquisition, Yahoo Screen

Other Space created by the multi-talented, three-time Emmy nominee, Paul Feig (Freaks and Geeks, Bridesmaids, The Office), is set to premiere April 14 on Yahoo Screen.  Get ready to binge, as all eight episodes will premiere at once.

It is the year 2105, a young, inexperienced and highly flawed crew embarks on a routine exploratory space mission. Suddenly, their ship, the UMP Cruiser, is drawn through a portal into a different, mysterious universe. With no maps, no contact, and no way back home, Captain Stewart Lipinski (Karan Soni, Betas, Safety Not Guaranteed), First Officer/Stewart’s-Older-Sister Karen Lipinski (Bess Rous, Murder in the First) and their crew have to learn to work together, all while dealing with mysterious space clouds, food and fuel shortages, robot rebellions, folds in time and the occasional alien attack.

In parallel with Feig’s original breakout show Freaks and Geeks, Other Space features an ensemble of young, up-and-coming actors playing the ship’s crew - a collection of over-matched rookies, feuding siblings, burned-out veterans and obsolete robots, which also includes Eugene Cordero (House of Lies), Milana Vayntrub (Silicon Valley), Conor Leslie (Klondike), Neil Casey (Broad City, The League), and the reunion of  Trace Beaulieu  and Joel Hodgson of Mystery Science Theater fame.

The premiere of Other Space on Yahoo Screen follows the sixth season premiere of Community and series premiere of Sin City Saints and can be seen by downloading the Yahoo Screen app for iOS and Android, on desktop, or via Apple TV, Roku and XBox.

American movie studios have no idea how to market comedies, especially not ones that are smart and that might appeal to someone outside the lowest common denominator.  So whenever such a movie is made, they essentially underhand-pitch it to the dumbest sector of the public.

This happens with Paul Feig movies a lot!  The trailer for Bridesmaids, for example, sets you up for “The Hangover but with women” (when that’s not what the movie is at all) by focusing entirely on three scenes, one of which is the movie’s biggest gross-out gag.  If you watched the trailer for Spy, on the other hand, you could be forgiven for not recognizing it as a fairly intelligent parody of spy films, and instead seeing it as “Isn’t It Funny That Melissa McCarthy Is Fat: The Movie”.

What I’m saying is, of course the trailer for the new Ghostbusters is bad.  Trailers for movies like this always are.  The studio has no idea how to sell it, so they put together all the slime jokes and the black lady saying “aw hell naw”, and hope that it hits the broadest, dumbest possible range.

Am I saying that it’s going to be a perfect movie?  No.  In fact, I agree with a lot of the criticisms that I’ve seen leveled at it.  But it’s definitely too early to write it off as this Antifeminist Nightmare I’ve seen more than one post claiming it is.  You don’t know that - in fact, nobody does, ‘cause they haven’t seen the movie.
