So I decided to do an animatic of what was probably my favorite Klance moment of season 3. I was originally going to do screencap redraws but I realized that those wouldn’t do this whole scene justice lmao
I’m not gonna talk about what sparked this rant. It doesn’t matter. What does matter is what I’m about to say.
I’m freaking done with the hate.
This SPN Family is supposed to be encouraging, accepting, we’re supposed to at least try to get along. Apparently that’s too hard. Now I could rant for hours about how some people in the SPN Family are treating eachother, but that’s for another time. This rant is going to be about one thing, the hate that the wives of the two leaders of this SPN Family receive. For this post I’m going to focus on one of the wives in particular…Danneel Ackles.
Once again as the Ackles family was nice enough to share parts of their life with us, people decide to be douchebags. This time Jensen isn’t happy with his life because he isn’t smiling in the photo of him & JJ. Also apparently comparing his kids to the comedy & tragedy is just a terrible thing to do. Oh, did you also hear that the twins might not be his because he said “my” twins instead of “our” twins. This is all Danneel’s fault too because she makes Jensen hate his life.
She can’t do anything right in the eyes of some people and it’s pissing me off. What did she do to cause so much hate? Now is the part when I ramble on about all she’s done…
She told her husband to go to a convention for the fans a few days after giving birth to twins.
Jensen told the story about finding out about the twins…JJ gave him a letter about it when he arrived at the airport…meaning he couldn’t be at the doctor appoint. How many doctor appointments do you think he had to miss because of filming?
She uses her “celebrity” to bring awareness to different events and situations going on in the world. I didn’t know about the Yulin dog festival until she talked about it. She does different work for a variety of charities, freaking google it if you don’t believe it.
Her husband is in a different country for the majority of the year while she stays back home in Austin. Have you ever had your husband away for a long period of time? Cause I have. It sucks. I complained about it on social media ALL THE TIME, but she never does.
She was a working woman in Hollywood. IMDb that shit. She was a steady worker in Hollywood however she slowed down/stopped when they had JJ.
Think of all the times she’s been out with her husband, cause that’s what Jensen is, he’s not “omg Jensen Ackles TV star”, he’s Jensen, the pain in the butt who forgot to take out the trash or forgot to grab the milk when he ran to the stores. Think about how many times she’s probably been out with him & had to deal with people coming up to talk to him. Now think about how many times this has happened & people have ignored her existence or used her as nothing more then a photo taker. Fans don’t mean too, but that shit probably happens more often then you think. I would get so sick of that.
Did I forget to mention how Jensen freaking lights up whenever someone brings up Danneel? CAUSE I WITNESSED IT IN PERSON A FEW WEEKS AGO & HE LEGIT LOOKS LIKE A TEENAGER IN LOVE WHEN SOMEONE TALKS ABOUT HER!
Apparently we’re supposed to hate her just cause.
Now is when the “haters” start to go, “you just like her because of who she’s married to.”
I knew about Danneel before I knew about Jensen. I know Danneel from One Tree Hill but I started to admire her when she hosted Maxim’s Hot 100 in 2009. She was the really pretty model/actress that I looked up to because she was funny & pretty. It wasn’t until I started watching Supernatural in 2015 that I had the “holy cow they’re married to each other” moment.
To sum up this rant; you don’t have to like Danneel, just don’t be a dick. If you admire Jensen as a human, don’t disrespect his wife or his family.
Basically if you wouldn’t go up to a person & say it to their face, don’t say it. Plus why bother wasting your time hating something when you could spend your time on something you love?
Peridot:It’s okay… just, take it easy with that bat.
There have been plenty of occasions in the past where Peridot’s belongings have been destroyed, thrown out, or almost thrown out. Despite Peridot having to apologise for her own behaviour in the past, no-one’s ever actually apologised for mistreating her belongings and/or upsetting her.
Except for Lapis, who immediately apologised after almost breaking Peridot’s tablet when she mistakenly thought that Steven was trapped inside it. She panicked and acted in a rage because this reminded her of her own traumatic experience (being trapped inside the mirror) - and yet she still apologised for upsetting Peridot, regardless of the fact that she actually had an understandable reason for her behaviour.
The fact that Lapis is the only Gem who’s ever bothered to apologise to Peridot in this way really speaks volumes.
Can you tell us something about a current writing project of yours? *makes big puppy eyes*
Hey, dear anon :)
Well, of course I’d love to share some stuff! Here’s a summary of a fic I’m currently writing:
“Please, Dean!! Please!”
“Are you kidding me, Jo?”
Jo’s eyes are big and wide and a
serious competition for Sam’s puppy dog look. “It’s just for a
“You want me to pretend to
be your freaking boyfriend?”
“Maybe three days tops …”
“Okay, closer to four days. I
promised I’d help with the preparations for the wedding …”
While she keeps rambling about
flower arrangements and seating plans Dean rolls his eyes, wondering
once again why he didn’t bother to look for some better friends when
he still got the chance.
(In which Dean finds himself at a
wedding as Jo’s fake boyfriend, eating overpriced (and thankfully
free) food and smiling at strangers the whole time, trying to appear
all handsome and perfect and utterly in love … until the moment his
gaze meets the two bluest eyes on planet earth and he realizes with a
shock that the groom’s brother is actually his old high school crush
Castiel – the only person Dean was never able to forget.)
Just saw the "lets go baby" clip during BV and what surprised me isnt sentence itself but the fact that JK was so natural like he legit didn't give a fuck and nobody said anything I expected teasing from T or laughters even a reply from JM but JM deadass followed him and nobody seemed to care/ bothered and that was so cuuuuuute like those type of moments mean a LOT about their relationship and I can't stop imagining JK calling JM baby at the dorm loooool I'm soft sorry ahah but really I'm Shook
YEP YEP YEP YEP. LIKE, THE “LET’S GO, BABY” IS JUST ICING ON THE CAKE!!! BECAUSE THE MAIN THING FOR ME IS HOW HE JUST SAID IT SO CASUALLY AND NATURALLY AND HE DIDN’T GIVE ANY FUCK. LIKE, NOBODY EVEN BLINKED WHEN HE SAID IT EITHER?? LIKE JIMIN WAS JUST LIKE “yeah, i’m coming, babe” lI JUST…. !!!!!!! and also the fact that lots of k-diamonds were saying that the way jk siad it, and the specific word he used are not normal for younger people to say to older people. and its just…. wowowoowo.
So your tags fuckin kill me, especially the ones about Eskimo kisses. Can u elaborate on Isak x Even Eskimo kisses and why they make you all fuzzy? I'd love to hear your thoughts
HELLOOOOOO MY LOVE!!!
Okay I’ve had this ask sitting in my inbox for a couple of days, because, I really wanna commit myself 100% to when I answer this, and answer it as … fully as I can, because, yes, you’re right. Their eskimo kisses make me all fuzzy. They’re probably my most favourite thing about them. This may get long? But urm … yeah, I need to explain.
Eskimo kissing, honestly, is normally, majority of the times, passed off as “just another trivial act of affection and love”, in most cases. It’s given a moment of appreciation where people go “AWW!! That’s cute!!”, and then … that’s it. You move on. It’s never really dwelled upon that much. In short, what I mean to say is, eskimo kissing is super underrated.
But Even and Isak make it … much, MUCH more than that. They have it be this constant running theme between them, one that never drops midway through the season once they become more sexually/physically close. It remains. It stays. It sticks. Even until the very, very last scene of the season, it stays.
Now, I don’t know if … it was scripted? Or if Henrik and Tarjei simply improvised it, but … once they had their very first, proper, eskimo kiss in episode 5, where Even and Isak spend the whole weekend in bed, after their first kiss, it’s been an ongoing Thing. Never edited out. Always being there, incorporated.
What Even and Isak bring into their eskimo kisses is intimacy. Intimacy on a whole other level. And it’s amazing, just how they showed that level of intimacy right from episode 5, when they’re both lying in bed that weekend, and they become, for the first time, physically close to one another. It instantly becomes so much more intimate, when Isak rubs his nose against Even’s, and Even waits to see what Isak is doing, whilst Isak is simply allowing him to bask in that feeling of being in the arms of a boy. In the arms of THAT boy that he’s felt so MUCH for. In the arms of Even. And Even smiles. He SMILES when he realises what Isak is doing, because … he’s already head over heels for Isak, but here is this boy, who just wants the smallest of touches, the simple feeling of pleasure you get when you are this close to someone you’ve been crushing on for so long, that you can finally lie in bed and brush noses, and the outside world doesn’t matter. And Even reciprocates it back. That, yeah, I feel that too, Isak. I feel that too.
Yes, it’s cute. Yes, it’s adorable. But I find it also being EXTREMELY intimate. In fact, even more intimate than their actual kisses. Why? Because their eskimo kisses aren’t just used “when they kiss”, they don’t just eskimo kiss then. They eskimo kiss in other times too: in times where they want to comfort each other, or start a conversation with each other. It’s their direct, first point of contact.
Case in point: In episode 5, before Even asks Isak “So, what do you think your parents would say if we began dating?”, there’s a small, private, intimate moment between them 2, where Even brushes his nose against Isak’s, then bites his bottom lip and looks down, in apprehension for what he’s about to ask Isak (because he KNOWS how big of a deal this is to Isak and him). Isak senses that Even’s … nervous … and Isak then brushes his nose against Even’s. And that’s when Even works up the courage and takes a breath in, and asks Isak the question.
And again, in episode 8, when Isak says “Only you can feel what you feel”, Even instantly brushes his nose against Isak, again, comforting him, making it a point of contact, before he tells Isak, “And I haven’t felt anything, quite like this, ever.” It’s SO … private. JUST for them.
Again, in O Helga Natt, what’s the FIRST thing they do? Isak walks up to Even, and he brushes his nose against Even’s, and then traces his nose against Even’s cheek. It’s SO fucking intimate. It’s SUCH a private moment. It’s literally … their first point of contact and communication. No words, just a way of them telling each other, “Hey, we don’t have to speak, but I’m here, ready to listen, when you’re ready to talk. In the meantime, let’s do something we’re both familiar with.”, and they brush their noses against one another.
In episode 10, during Minutt for Minutt, that last bit, where Isak brushes his nose against Even’s. It’s a sign of Comfort. Warmth. Safety. Intimacy. It’s so much more than just being “another physical symbol of love”, it speaks it’s own language. And Even’s deep long breaths that you can hear him take during that bit show him wanting to feel safe, and feeling safe, feeling somewhat content that he has Isak there, and that he’s taking in all this familiarity, this warmth, that Isak’s giving him.
Even in the last scene of the season, before Sana walks in on them, AGAIN, there is this CONSCIOUS moment, where they both eskimo kiss. But here, it’s Even now providing Isak with some courage, with some calm, because even though Isak said to Even that he doesn’t find it awkward meeting Even’s Mum, so as long as Even’s smiling, and wearing clothes, that things will be chill then, Even still knows just how frightened Isak was that night when Even had his episode. Even can still feel the after effects, hear it in the way Isak’s voice became so serious, even if he was saying it light heartedly. And it’s Even that says, “I promise I’ll wear clothes”, but it’s so much more than that? That’s Even saying to Isak that, I know somedays it’s won’t be easy, and I’m sorry that I scared you as much as I did, but know that … I do love you. Know that, I’m still me. Know that, when you get scared, I can feel it. Know that, I want to soothe your worries and comfort you too, just like how you do with me. We can be that for each other. And then Even goes ahead and brushes his nose against Isak’s, for good measure, a visual, physical measure, to once again show that their eskimo kisses are a sign of comfort. It’s intimate. So intimate, that Sana walks in on them doing THAT, instead of having her walk in on them kissing. They could have EASILY shown Sana walk in on them kissing, but she didn’t. Why? Because their eskimo kisses ARE that much more intimate, and she walked in on THAT, and her fond laughter shows that she too realised she walked in on a very private moment between them 2.
And, well, if that doesn’t make me feel all fuzzy, and warm, and safe … then what will?
Hi! Can I have a jungkook Drabble or one shot about like a mobster au where he has to kill you because your a witness to a crime but noone knows that you were his first love and he can't do it
Sure! Here we are!
You knew him from somewhere, you knew you had seen him once before. At the moment, however, your brain couldn’t be bothered to place the face of the man who was holding a gun to the back of your head. The unnamed man had been sitting in the shadowy corner of your apartment silently when you’d come home and as of yet still hadn’t spoken a work. It screamed efficiency. “I don’t have any money,” you whispered, voice somehow coming across steady. He didn’t answer.
Wearing the same pin as those men who were dumping their trash illegally in your garbage bin last week–oh. You laughed bitterly, “Sons of Devils, right? I’m a hit.” He still didn’t answer, and you could swear that you could hear him breathing, labored. Was he scared? Somehow this odd swing in your assassin’s demeanor made you feel more in control. “If you’re going to kill me,” you growled, “you can do me the favor of facing me.”
He swallowed and his lack of response gave you the courage to begin to take a few steps to turn. “Don’t.” You were sure his voice was trembling.
The moment you faced him, the mobster ducked his head, turning away. Though you couldn’t see his entire face, most of it hidden by dark hair that fell over his forehead, you could just make out his twisted expression. His large shoulders were stiff, turned inwards in a position of defense, despite the obvious physical inequality between you two. Leaning first on way, then the other, you did your best to catch his eye, but he avoided it every time. “Why won’t you look at me?” you snapped, “what’s wrong with you?” Again, no answer.
Stepping back, you allowed yourself to scrutinize him once again, not bothering to hide your judgment. Whispers of tattoos were visible in the space between his glove and jacket, the gun was not new, but well polished, his grip firm and sure. “You’re clearly not new at this, what’s the problem?” You were going to die anyway, might as well go out establishing some damage, and it seemed emotional was easier.
When he still didn’t answer, you scoffed and lifted your chin, “What? You want to rape me first, but aren’t allowed? Pesky DNA.” “Stop,” his whispered, face distorted in sincere disgust. You did. The silence filled up the room, pressing in on all sides until it seemed to replace the very air. Chest rising and falling, you slowly shook your head, “you don’t want to kill me.” There was no question in your statement, that much was clear now. Your brain scrambled for that scrap of memory, the reason why his shadow and profile was so familiar. I know him, I do!
The realization yanked you into a tailspin, suddenly feeling panic crawl up your throat, “if you don’t want to kill me, then don’t! Let me go, I won’t say anything.” Desperately, you lunged forward, grabbing his jacket and forcing yourself into his space, “look at me, please, look at me.” He still refuse, but now you could see the tears in his eyes. In another attempt to save yourself, you gripped his face with both hands and forced it toward you. At last, round brown eyes met yours. As if burned you released him. Your heart stopped. “Kookie?”
Slowly, he lowered the gun and lifted his head, “(Y/n),” he pleaded, voice cracking with the strain. “I’m so sorry.” It was as if all of the air in the rooms had been sucked into a large vacuum, leaving you gasping. Hesitantly, your eyes lowered, seeking out a familiar flash of silver, the same as your own. “You’re still wearing it,” you breathed. A small silver coin sitting on a chain, the one from high school. “So this is where you went,” a slow tear trickled down your cheek, “I don’t understand–” “My dad owed them a lot of money, I have to work until we’re straight.” You blinked up at Jungkook, “are you going to kill me?” The question disturbed him, it frightened him seeing your vulnerability. With a loud clatter, Jungkook dropped the firearm, his large hands gently cupping your cheeks. Somehow, you were more terrified than you had been previously. Tear filled eyes wide, you let him caress your face, unable to plead or protest. Though gritted teeth, jaw clenched, Jungkook pulled you closer, squeezing his eyes shut, “I didn’t know… I didn’t,” he was trying to swallow down the urge to cry, “I didn’t know it was you.” You could feel his lips brush against your temple, “did you look for me?” “Of course,” you answered, voice barely audible.
Suddenly, Jungkook was pulling away, retracting to the opposite side of the room. Left on your own, arms remaining stupidly outstretched, you watched. “You need to leave,” he sniffed, pushing a hand through his thick hair. He looked around your apartment, “right now, I-I’ll help you pack.” “They’ll kill you,” you answered flatly. He let out a bark of a laugh, “it was going to happen eventually. I’ll never really pay up, there will always be something else to do and at some point… at some point, I won’t want to do it anymore.” “Then come with me,” you crossed the room, taking his hand, “we can start over, go anywhere!” He hesitated. You pressed on, “iceland, do you remember how you used to say you wanted to go.” Suddenly, you were crying, clinging to him as if he had never left; as if six years had been a mere day.
Now he was crying too, “you don’t know me, (y/n), I-I’ve done bad things–awful things.” “I don’t care, I love you! I still love you, I never stopped. Please, don’t leave me again,” as you spiraled, you buried your face into his chest. You inhaled his scent, that soapy pine that had marked your teenage years. Though at first unsure, Jungkook pulled you impossibly tighter to him, tilting his head so that your hair tickled the tip of his nose. “I’m not a good person,” he whispered. “I forgive you. Whatever you’ve done, let’s just go. Kookie, let’s go, please.”
what do you think about lana's behaviour this last con in barcelona? i'm really conflicted about it all, like i can't look at her the same way anymore? everything feels tainted in a way.
it really didn’t bother me much?
i mean, i definitely got the impression she was impatient w/ the swan queen fans in that room at that moment, but i don’t think that’s reflective of her feelings on the fandom as a whole. and tbh i’ve been to a lana panel where i was deeply uncomfortable and sometimes outright annoyed with the questions swan queen fans were asking…i don’t have the full context in this particular situation but i’ve seen her put on the spot before and cornered into answering weird questions (asking her to repeat multiple regina lines w/ the implication that the lines were sexual innuendos, making her dance/perform/etc., referencing content from fics like o/iaq, demanding repeated assurances about her support of the LGBT community, holding her responsible for writing decisions she had no part in making, the list goes on–all things that fans would never dare ask jennifer morrison) and i empathize with her.
i think many fans (regardless of their intentions, which i’m sure are not malicious) have reached the point where they want lana to satisfy a checklist more than they want to…interact with her…? i get the impression that many of them would rather treat her as a vessel for their ship than acknowledge her as a human being capable of independent thought and it isn’t fair…she’s reached out to us more so than anyone else in this cast, especially her co-star.
so imo, lana’s snippiness during that panel wasn’t so much a response to an isolated incident (although asking her a question and booing her answer was…kind of tasteless) but the culmination of being treated this way by fans for 6+ years.
the only thing i will say is that i wish she hadn’t singled out swan queen by name–because it took all of five seconds for anti-shippers to jump on that as proof that lana actually hates us and thinks we’re disgusting; every gif set of that exchange that i’ve seen has been giffed by csers, and i don’t care whether they consider themselves supportive of swan queen or not, that’s ugly–this is none of their business, and it’s just fanning the flames. but i genuinely don’t think she meant any harm–she joked that swan queen fans would be annoyed that she defended hook, which…isn’t an assumption on her part, it was a pretty clear statement of fact since the entire room had just booed her for doing exactly that.
anyway, i didn’t exactly feel great watching the clip of that moment, but like i said, if we’re comparing one moment of rudeness against years of people gleefully taking advantage of her, i’m going to have to side…pretty firmly with lana.
Sorry to bother you, but I was wondering if you had any favorite texts by Helene Cixous? I've been meaning to buy her work, but can't afford more than one or two books, at the moment
I’m far from having read everything by Cixous—she’s a very prolific author.
If you’d like to read her non-fiction, I would recommend you start with The Hour of Clarice Lispector, The Laugh of the Medusa(available online), and The Coming to Writing & Other Essays (also available online).
If you’re interested in her playwriting, know that these are her most experimental pieces, but truly marvelous in style; I would recommend The Awakening of the Erinyes, Les Naufragés du Fol Espoir (see trailer for the play here), and if you can read French, her translation of the Eumenides.
I haven’t read much of her fiction yet, but I’d suggest you start with either Inside or Anankê.
Okay y'all just reaching now, how is that even a jikook moment especially hand holding part? You guys blinded by mindless shipping or what, did you not see everybody holding hands to bow or what, i swear you guys are just pathetic now
Oh love, you do realize is really not about the hand holding right? It’s about the comforting, Jungkook’s need to be by his side, to be a constant presence when Jimin was in a very emotional state, just to be someone he can lean on if he ever finds that it’s too much to handle. I’m sad you can only see the superficial and come bash people’s inbox for an assumption that we’re here for a simple hand in hand contact and not the feeling behind it.
And I can honestly say jikook and BTS in general was never about that to me, what makes me love them and always share their beautiful moments is the trust and companionship I see in them, not the “free shipping and fan service” you so wrongly see, feel the need to point out and even bother others about it, grow up…
the funniest thing about this "omg caitlin betrayed the team this is horrible" is that her keeping the part of the stone prevented savitar from exiting speedforce in the first place... her hiding it saved them all until wally had to freak out and throw it away lol plus caitlin is basically the most selfless character on that damn show, she's kind, brave, strong and i just can't
Honestly caitlin is so selfless, risking her own sanity by using her powers to save barry and iris but the moment she does something for herself such as refuse at first or try to to find a way to stop her powers, basically worrying about her since no one but a new guy in the team gives a damn about what she’s feeling and understands her trauma, and ironically is not totally selfish cause if she becomes killer frost she can kill them all lol.
It doesn’t bother me when characters lie or fuck up every once and again be it cisco, caitlin, julian or wally, what bothers me is how the fans can justifiy some actions *cough* like of a certain guy who’s the one to blame for all of this disaster *cough* but drag a girl who’s literally scared, traumatized and is trying to not become a monster. It bothers me that in the show, the characters that are her friends don’t care about her, and it’s not only this season but in s2b when caitlin was kidnapped.
God I'm sorry but I snorted so fuckin' hard at that person using every single moment of the manga to prove that SS isn't terrible, when the majority of their interactions were fucking terrible, or are we just going to pretend that Sasuke never belittled her, insulted her, tried to kill her multiple times, stuck her in an unnecessarily cruel genjutsu that basically showed her being murdered by him, can't be bothered to keep in contact with his family for 10+ years... am i missing anything?
A lot of people were posting/reblogging “first and last appearance” gifs after the ending, and the juxtaposition of Sasuke and Sakura just made me really sad for how the ending failed them both.
Sakura, first appearance: Sasuke-kun!! Last appearance: Sasuke-kun!!
Sasuke, first appearance: sets himself apart from everyone Sasuke, last appearance: sets himself apart from everyone
(gif credit to @shiroiraiha, couldn’t find these specific gifs in the search engine)
Character development, I don’t know her?
Now obviously both characters did change a lot over the course of part one and Shippuden, but the fact remains that their fundamental issue at the beginning–Sakura’s obsession with Sasuke, Sasuke’s inability to have healthy, present relationships with anyone–hasn’t really improved.
Spoiler alert: it’s going to be pretty much exactly the same 15 years later. It’s a real waste.
That moment when someone wants you to be outraged about something but then can't be bothered to explain it themselves. This is like when people asked Hillary to explain her policies better and she directed them to a website. So much for discourse.
What in the world could I possibly have to say on the subject when I am literally quoting an article that goes into detail about the subject as it is??? Literally all I did was add a flippant and sarcastic comment that added NO new information whatsoever because the article that I linked to covered the issue fairly well & concisely. What the fuck do you want me to do?? Repost the fucking article? It’s not the Bee Movie script!!!!
So this definitely should have happened months ago, back when this drama initially began, and I apologize for that. I am late to the party, but at least I’m here.
I’m done with Felix. I stuck around when he was going through that n/azi bullshit, hoping it was a mistake, that he would learn and change.
While Jack condemned what he did months back, he still continued to hang out with him and seemed to have forgiven him. I thought, if someone as nice as Jack could forgive Felix, then so could I.
Felix was a big part of my life. I watched him ever since middle school back in 2012. He was a big inspiration in my life, basically being the cultivator of my love for video games. I grew up with him, and it was hard to see him begin to act differently. Perhaps he didn’t change, he just got more comfortable voicing certain offensive thoughts. But that was part of the reason why it was so hard to let go of him.
But after recent events, I just can’t anymore. He’s clearly shown that despite the backlash, despite his countless apologies, he clearly hasn’t changed at all. And he doesn’t care, because he knows people will still defend him regardless. It’s time I put a stop to this never-ending cycle of r/acism. I advocate love and acceptance of everyone, and as a POC myself, I do not tolerate hate or any type of discrimination. I can’t call out offensive/problematic behavior in strangers and not people I know.
If you still support Felix, unfollow me, block me, whatever. Don’t bother sending hate anons because I will not answer them, I don’t want that kind of negativity on my blog.
From this moment on, I’m a Felix free blog. I apologize to any mutuals/followers that I’ve upset with my past decisions because I really should have done this months ago. Toxic people should be cut off, even if you once loved them.
