but i did it for the greater good

Liam and Jaal getting into a compliment battle that began very Innocent and honest.

“You are a most skilled fighter, Liam. I enjoy watching your prowess in the field.”

“Ah thanks mate you’re all good with that techie stuff. Fixed my shields a few time yeah? ”

“Yes well only because you so expertly kept me safe from wayward by bullets. I simply had to return the favor.”

“Of course, I did. Gotta protect our biggest asset, you know? Wouldn’t be good to let you get hurt.”

“Oh, but would not our crisis response be of greater importance? Where then would we be in a crisis?”

“Ah you would all manage, I bet. But we only got one Angara mate and that makes you priority one in my book.”

“Well, in mine, that would be you. I would not want to be caught in a crisis without you.

"Oh, uh, aha, well ah alright thanks yeah. Back at you.”

Or it devolves into Jaal making Liam feel like the stars and then they smooch and cuddle.

The stream ended.. And I forgot to upload this here.. again….

Anyway.. I’ve been drawing this for a few days now, but only finished it during the livestream today xD It dem bois, MERK, E-TAN and TOILAR

Heh.. But in all seriousness.. Today we all could come together, not only for having a good time, but also raising money for a greater cause! And I’m so very happy that we hit the goal hours ago.. and even then people kept donating :)

To everyone who helped in one way or another: Be proud of yourself, you did something good! :D 

I hope you all have a great day today! :D

Kiawe:  “I don’t need your help.  I’ll finish this myself.  But I guess you are sort of strong.”

[Ash wants to use Z-moves]

Kiawe:  “Z-moves are special!  They’re a manifestation of a Trainer’s connection and love for their Pokemon.  They’re meant to only be used in the service of the world and the greater good.  You’re not ready to use this awesome power, Ash!”

Ash:  “I’m a 6-time League contender across the globe, have saved the world several times both canonically and non-canonically, and literally did the Fusion Dance with my Greninja so hard it crossed dimensions into the video games.  Who the fuck do you think you’re talking to?

Soooo, I was working on giffing another scene in this episode (it did not go well) but this….I mean, you never forget but sometimes you’re just reminded.  How they both just constantly have faith in each other and instant forgiveness (yes, yes, they’ve also done and said some messed up things).  But when you strip it all down, they’re just there for one another.

It’s like this quiet warm constant.  You’ll always be forgiven.  I mess up more than you do, I won’t let you hurt Sam, I’d die for him, I would. 

Castiel should have hated ‘the boy king’ but he didn’t. He never did. 

Sam should have hated the angel that demolished his wall.  He never did.

It’s like they recognise something in each other despite everything.  I guess it’s that they both have such good hearts?  That any bad they have done, they have done for the greater good (or so they thought).  That they were both high on power, that they punish themselves more than anyone else could.  That they would sacrifice themselves in an instant to save others.  They see that in each other.

Someone who didn’t have to save them or care for them but did.

Luke, you’re going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.  Anakin was a good friend. When I first met him, your father was already a great pilot. But I was amazed how strongly the Force was with him. I took it upon myself to train him as a Jedi.  […]  Bury your feelings deep down, Luke. They do you credit, but they could be made to serve the Emperor.

I will always defend Obi-Wan’s motivations in this scene, given what we know of the prequels, why he made the choices he did and how it’s not lying just for the sake of manipulation.

He’s faced with this good-natured kid (this blond, blue-eyed child from the deserts of Tatooine) who wants to do good in the galaxy, who has such a strong connection to the Force, who is an amazing pilot, who has all these desperately strong feelings and an overwhelming need to find a greater path in life.

Who is going to face a Sith Lord who is a master of manipulation, who takes that desire for an authority/father figure and preys on it, who will twist this good-hearted kid into serving his own will, no matter how well intentioned this kid is.  No matter how sure of himself he is, the Emperor, knows how he can fool him and find a way to slither into his heart, to put him in an impossible situation where he has to serve the Emperor because he wants to save someone.

Obi-Wan isn’t omitting the truth to Luke just because it’s easier, but because he’s seen what Palpatine did to Anakin.  Sweet, good-natured Anakin, this blond haired, blue-eyed child from the deserts of Tatooine who wanted to do so much good in the galaxy, who so badly wanted to help people, who wanted to save people, who had this tremendous well of feelings roiling around in him, who was manipulated and preyed upon by Palpatine.

Palpatine used Anakin’s feelings against him, to destroy that good in him until nothing was left.  Used his desire for a kindly authority figure who validated everything he spent his whole life wanting to hear.  Of course he would do the exact same thing to Luke, and telling Luke about Vader (who has fallen so far that he cannot be trusted with Luke, who they fear would only turn him over to the Emperor, because Vader seemed to wholly, truly believe in the Emperor) would only send Luke running to them to be manipulated, to be told everything he’s spent his life wanting to hear, to have a kindly father/father figure put him in another impossible position.

Obi-Wan can’t do that again, not after it destroyed that person he loved so much, not after it killed all the good in Anakin Skywalker.

My Top Favs™ (aka so good I cry thinking about them):

You Never Stood A Chance by Kagoshima

lance to hunk ♡
>i’m gonna fukin die hunk oh mygod i sent
>keith a work out selfie that i wan supposed to fcukin send to you and you know what it said
>”BET YOU WANNA LICK THESE NIPS”
>HUNK I WILL NEVE BE ABLE TO FCE HIM AGAIN I WANT TO DI E

(Or, Keith is beautiful, Lance has a crush, and there’s lots of shirtless selfies)

Pepsi cola- by stalemateBecks

It starts like this: Lance looking up at the scoreboard only a few days into his Garrison training and muttering to himself, “What the hell kind of a name is Keith?”

I can’t help but want- by aknightly

Lance deals with the aftermath of being sucked into a black hole and stranded on an alien planet. When Lance wakes up, all he can see is blue.

Cause you’re learning me(WIP)- by Safra

Here’s what Lance knows about his mysterious flatmate:

1. His name is Kevin. Or Keith. Or something like that.
2. He’s studying astrophysics which, honestly, is pretty cool.
3. He doesn’t know how to use the washing machine.
4. He can’t cook. Like— At all.
5. And— Well. And that’s about all Lance knows about the mysterious Kevin/Keith because, after nearly two months of living together - after almost two months of sharing a bathroom and a kitchen and all the other things that come with being flatmates - Lance has never, not even once, actually seen him.

Call me beep me- by Safra 

(00:31) Do you think she gave me the wrong number on purpose?
(00:31) Or was it a genuine mistake?
(00:32) Like maybe she writes funny and I misread it?
(00:32) Some of the numbers do look a little dodgy…
(00:33) Cause, you know, her threes could very easily be poorly formed eights? And maybe she writes her sevens like her ones?
(00:45) What
(00:46) The
(00:46) Fuck???
(00:47) Oh good, you are awake!

where lance messages the wrong number and things kind of snowball from there

The little things- by fairietailed

On Friday Hunk can hear the two of them behind him as they walk to the control room, and he swears he hears something akin to a kiss, and Keith whispering.“That’s 10-7, Cargo Pilot. Try catching up.”

When Hunk turns around Lance is bright red, and there’s a foot of space between him and Keith. Or maybe he’s imagining things?

Nightmares- by trashness

Lance’s nightmares are getting out of control. It’s effecting his and the team’s performance, but he’s at a loss for how to fix this.Apparently sleeping next to a warm body helps.

In a hundred lifetimes (I’d find you and I’d choose you)- by ashtxns

It happens to him and he’s alright with that. But ever since Keith started appearing in the other versions, Lance can’t help but think that the universe is trying to tell him something.

Or, Lance travels to different versions of his life. The only constant is Keith.

Sight for sore eyes- by Writewild

Photographer!Lance’s deadline for the magazine he works on the side for is coming up really soon, and has to search last-minute photo opportunities soon. One boy catches his eye.

Altea school of witchcraft and wizardry (WIP)- by yeah_no_sorry

Some kids go to Altea (magic school) and learn a lot about both themselves and each other as they struggle through magical homework, detention, and battling the dark wizard Zarkon and his evil forces. (Harry Potter!AU)

The bruises and contusions will remind me what you did when you wake(SERIES)- by asexualrey                                                                              a series of one shots centered around the paladins and hurt/comfort

You Don’t Wanna Be AloneThe very last thing Keith wants is for anyone to make a big deal over this when he’s perfectly capable of taking care of himself.

My Head is Dizzy NowAllura had better get there soon. He doesn’t want to be responsible for Lance dying just because he’s completely useless.

Weak linkThe one thing he always wants when he doesn’t feel well is his mom, and she’s…god knows how far away she is. She probably thinks he’s dead.
In this moment, he almost wishes he was.


Other really good ones I like:

Whiskey (part ½ of Whisky)(smut)- by Redburn

What’re you drinking?” the sultry voice asked.

Keith glanced up, momentarily shocked into silence. The guy - not even kidding - was fucking stunning.

champagne supernova (part 2/2 of whisky)(not smut)- by Redburn

Keith tries to ask Lance to marry him. Then he tries to ask him again. And then he tries again-By the forth time he’s pretty sure the universe is just fucking with him now.

The greater enemy- by genericfanatic

Lance is displeased when he finds out his crush and childhood friend is dating Takashi Shirogane. Keith is displeased when he finds out his foster brother is dating Princess Allura. Both are equally displeased that this means they end up having to live together. So they decide to do something about it.

In the silence of a safe place- by sassively

When it all gets to be too much, Lance stops time. Keith stays with him until Lance feels ready to start the world again.

And I’ll keep you a daydream away- by ashtxns

But, I mean, y’know, am I gay for Keith? You – Wait. What?”

He stares at the camera.

“Oh my God. I am gay for Keith.” (parks and rec! Au)

Found in translation- by princevince

Lance and Keith are on a stargazing date in the Castleship’s smallest observation deck. The stars help to shed some light on a few things.

Squeezing my heart- morvish

5 times they kissed, and 1 time they talked about it.

Alternatively: Lance and Keith don’t start off with the best communication strategy.

3 words or less- by fairietailed

Keith,” Pidge says, resting their elbow on the table and their chin on the palm of their hand. “Describe Lance in three words or less.”

“Who?

”Lance lets out a squawk of protest. “What are you even talking about?! You know exactly who I am!”

Keith doesn’t look at him. “I’m unfamiliar with the name.”

Sweet quiznak- checkeredcloth

You’re really into him,“ Hunk mutters, and wow, Lance’s face is on fire. Hunk is killing him.”

Look, read into how you like, Freud, just make sure that if I die Keith knows I totally would’ve mowed his ass like grass. That way, I can laugh hysterically at his emotionally-constipated expression from the afterlife.“

Or: Lance is badly injured and has a few skeletons in his closet. Or maybe just the one.

Eyes wide to you with wonder- aknightly

Keith doesn’t dislike his job, but he definitely dislikes Lance. Probably. Maybe.

“Coran thinks you’ll bang at the Christmas party but I think that’s giving you guys way too much credit,” Pidge says thoughtfully. “Hunk is a romantic. He thinks Lance is gonna ask you out any day now. I think he’s got a week or so before he owes me like a hundred bucks.”

“Pidge, what the fuck?” Keith says, flustered. He nudges them again with his foot, this time slightly harder. They scowl at him, swatting him away. “Why would you bet on me and Lance?”

Cut from the same stubborn cloth- by genericfanatic

Keith is keeping a secret from Lance. Shiro knows everyone looks up to him, but doesn’t feel that he deserves it. They both feel that they’ve been hurting their loved ones.

We don’t need to keep it hush- by jojotxt

snuggle muffin (6:38): haha i know right
snuggle muffin (6:38): i love you too

Pidge’s eyes widened, and she audibly gasped. No fucking way.

Bottle episode- themoistplinth

Everyone is sick of Keith and Lance’s constant bickering yet they still insist that they’re friends. The gang bet that Keith and Lance couldn’t spend three days locked in a room together without hurting each other, and they’re not entirely wrong

All we have to do- by aknightly

Keith gets hurt during a mission, and Lance is not sure how to handle that.

Lance wakes up on the floor outside of the medical bay, jerking wildly, body a mess of aches and twinges.

(UPDATE: now with links and descriptions!)

Why Lapidot is so good for both Lapis and Peridot's character development

I see a lot of posts criticizing Lapidot as a shitty end to Lapis and Peridot’s character development, talking about how incredibly out of character it is for them, but Lapidot is exactly where each of their character arcs should lead to.

Peridot’s entire character angle is she took pride in being an intellectual in service of a greater intellectual, Yellow Diamond, for the enlightened benefit of gemkind, and after getting trapped on earth with the Crystal Gems she did the whole betrayal thing but learned that Yellow Diamond was in fact not rational about earth and was not being intelligent about what could benefit gemkind and what they could learn from, and like, then Peridot spurned her and didn’t know what to do with herself anymore. She started learning about the complex pointless beautiful things Earth has and that they all are valuable in their uniqueness,

and it’s while she’s learning about music and joy and creativity and friendship, there’s Lapis, whose

character arc was her discovering that while she can’t go back to her life before the mirror, and that she’s more than who she was and what she did when she was Malachite, Earth can be her chance to decide who she wants to be. That she can grow and change here on Earth like the leaves with the seasons. That this is her chance to forgive herself.

She’s understanding that people have the potential for change, herself included, and she’s sort of, letting Peridot show her that she can change too. And Peridot’s discovering herself while Lapis is learning to love and forgive herself, and this is exactly what Lapidot is and why it is so important to both of their characters!

anonymous asked:

YES YES YES. I AM SO SO READY. saw a fanart of this somewhere and wanted to ask since then. what if hawke did join the inquisition but as an adviser instead? what would the da:i companions think of her? including the inquisitor? um. purple hawke if possible? xD

PURPLE HAWKE AWAAAAY~

Cassandra: She’s pleased to finally have Hawke join the Inquisition, but she quickly realizes that Hawke is a smart-ass. An unrelenting smart-ass. Oftentimes their suggestions leave her going “ugh” in exasperation– bonus points if Hawke’s with Varric, and they play off of each other, making her exasperation greater. 

Blackwall: He loves sharing a drink with Hawke, and finds their jokes funny. “You pick good friends, Varric.” he says cheerfully. When the truth of his identity comes out, he’s relieved when Hawke isn’t even mad. “I’m going to be honest, this doesn’t even come close to the worst thing one of my friends has done.” they just say to him.

Iron Bull: Their first conversation goes as follows: “So, you fought back a qunari invasion on your own?” “You could say that.” “That’s badass.” He has respect for Hawke on the basis of this from the get-go. He and Varric and Hawke like to share drinks and play Wicked Grace in the tavern fairly often.

Varric: No one is happier about this than Varric. If Hawke’s not busy, they’re usually hanging out with him, trading quips and stories and snickering whenever Cassandra rolls her eyes. He’s happy his best friend is close by again, and he seems happy to commiserate with Hawke about Corypheus. They’re the one who was there, who knows all about it, and they take solace in the knowledge that they’re working to help fix it together.

Cole: The hawk has found a new place to perch, to watch over, to guard. They are happier, now.” he remarks. “They have deep, dark, aching hurt and pain, but it’s not their fault. They try to hide it with laughter. I want to help.” Hawke’s not particularly fazed by Cole, but they also dodge his questions with humor. They’re a bit more open after Varric vouches for the kid.

Sera: She thought Hawke was cool and all, but didn’t think much about it. She gets on really well with Hawke in a short amount of time, though, loving their endless snark and casualness. She’s also thrilled when they laugh upon being pranked, and soon they take to helping her. “Hawke’d be a great Jenny.” she says proudly to Varric one day.

Dorian: He easily befriends Hawke. Hawke doesn’t seem to give two shits about the fact he’s from Tevinter, and they’re snarky, which he loves. Sometimes they’ll hang out in the tavern drinking shitty booze and gossiping with Varric. 

Solas: To Varric’s surprise, Solas doesn’t seem to mind Hawke’s snark– much of the time, if it’s clever jabs, he’ll smirk. That said, he often asks Hawke for stories, and finds himself mildly disappointed/annoyed when Hawke tries to cover up some of it with jokes.

Vivienne: She had only heard of Hawke second-hand from Varric’s book and from gossip. The Enchantress is a bit wary of their joining, if only because of their connection to what transpired in Kirkwall. However, Hawke is even-tempered and does their job well, which Vivienne can respect, and she eases up on them.

Leliana: She’s glad that Hawke’s joined them, and she was very supportive of the idea of them joining from the get-go. Hawke’s a bit familiar, and it makes her less wary of them. She also likes their snark, a lot, and loves it when it exasperates the other advisers. 

Josephine: While she’s glad to have Hawke on board, she is quickly flooded with requests to arrange meetings with Hawke from curious nobles. Hawke’s nonchalant responses almost drive the ambassador up the wall, but eventually she gets her way and gets Hawke to meet some important nobles. It strengthens the Inquisition, and she’s pleased for it.

Cullen: “Not you again.” he groans under his breath when he thinks Hawke won’t hear, but they do, and cackle at his exasperation. However, as they work together, he ends up really liking working with Hawke, and will snort and snicker at some of their jokes. He sometimes confides in Hawke about the events in Kirkwall- they were there, and they understand.

anonymous asked:

Briggon! Huge fan of Caleb! I wondered how you feel towards your character? Do you feel like it's a younger version of you, a little brother, a friend...?

This is so interesting because it’s not a cut and dry thing for me. I for sure play Caleb as me in the sense that a huge part of me is infused in this character…but that’s the only way I would want to play Caleb. 

Is he a younger version of me? Yes…ish. I feel like Caleb has a greater sense of self than I did at that age…so I feel like it’s a mix of young me and now me. Like…what’s the thing?…”You’re every age you’ve ever been”? I can completely see him as a younger me…but there’s some twenty-something in there for good measure.

BUT…as a custodian of this beautifully written character that Lauren has entrusted me with…I feel protective of him like he’s my younger brother. AND I can say for certain that I would love to be his friend…and I like to think that I am. SO…long answer long, I think all of these dynamics are valid. 

*I know I gush about this kid a lot (he hates being called a kid), but it’s because I love him. Caleb is a gift in my life…and one that I will never for a moment take for granted. - Briggon

^ this seems like it’s going to be a forever WIP

I really did like Tyrest’s design, to be honest – He seems charming on the outside, someone who might genuinely be doing something for the greater good

But bile, dark evil bile spews from his mouth, from his mind and spirit and It’s a nice opposite to his appearance (pretty much a Principality – the wings, crown, spear, et cetera)

I liked his arc quite a lot, and it was interesting to see the madness that overtook him (body mutilation, megalomania, Machiavellianism)

I hope to see him back

“if i take a life to find a cure, does that make me a murderer?”

we’ve all very appropriately pointed our attention towards mount weather with this next episode, and the ramifications of sacrificing for the greater good, and yes good well done team

but can i also just point out that it’s so, so, so significant that this conversation is happening between kane and abby

who spent the first half of S1 head-to-head on this exact argument

with kane, who had to convince himself that taking 320 innocent lives to find a “cure” for oxygen deprivation didn’t make him a murderer (until afterwards when he realized that yes, it did), who is now going to be forced to convince abby of the same because it’s the rational thing to do

and he’s going to be there on the other side, when abby - the same woman who sternly declared to him that “i choose to make sure that we deserve to stay alive”, who’s relentlessly taught him the virtue of humanity - inevitably comes to that dark place, to try to do the same for her that she did for him and bring her out of the ensuing wilderness of self-hatred….

this is going to kill me, fam. i will not survive. 

My first drawing of Roger Taylor. 

Last summer, I had a long, long talk about art with an incredible artist, and she insisted I stop drawing on printing paper with the cheapest pencils. Then she went and bought me tons of paper and pencils and whatnot, which I’ve barely used at all as I haven’t really had a chance to sit down and draw until now. But goody, it turns out that certainly does matter what you draw on and what with! It was some getting used to at first, but then I found out that all the shading went more smoothly and there was a much greater distinction between the dark and light/hard and soft pencils.

It’s been proven time and time again that I cannot draw hair, and believe me, I spent twice the time drawing the hair than anything else. Still unhappy with the result, but what can I do, Roger surely did not use a hairbrush very often.

Also forgot my good camera back in my apartment, and I’m visiting my parents for the weekend, so that should explain the bad quality of the photo.

anonymous asked:

Did that anon read the books? The whole point was Dumbledore leaving Harry with the Dursleys because of Lily's magic protection. Dumbledore knew the Dursleys were abusive, and instead of putting Harry's wellbeing first and implementing secondary protection (and that would have been easy enough with a secret keeper) he decided to "see what would happen" to his little hero. "For the greater good." Everyone has every reason to dislike Dumbledore for that reason.

I always say this, a child who’s been neglected and ostracized is easier to shape and manipulate. Dumbledore knew what he was doing. He decided that a child’s well being could be sacrificed “for the greater good”. There’s no excuse for that, whether you like Dumbledore or not you have to admit it’s irrefutably a terrible thing to do.

posting my twitter scenarios on here?? no read more cause mobile is an ass; if im not too lazy (which i am) i may turn this into a fic, unless someone else wants to do it

-

Imagine. Ulaz dies. Thace gets the news. He tells himself it’s fine. Ulaz did it for the greater good. They should always expect death.

And yet it still takes every ounce of his strength to nor break down in front of Haggar or the other Galra on Zarkon’s ship

“Ulaz did it for a good cause,” he tells himself while trying to keep his breathing even. “The paladins were saved.” He chokes

“We’re one step closer to defeating Zarkon.” He tells himself while his fingernails dig into the palm of his hand.

“It’s for the best.” Thace’s palms start to bleed, sharp fingernails slicing small openings in his skin. “It’s for the best.” He trembles.

“It’s part of the job.” He tells himself through tears. “There’s no point in crying.” He grits his teeth desperately trying to hold his sobs

“Don’t cry.” His lip splits from the force of his sharp teeth pressing into the skin. “Don’t cry.” Thace slams his fist against the wall.

“Don’t you dare fucking cry.”

Thace legs give out from underneath him, his body shaking with silent sobs as the cold realization of his lover’s death sinks in his mind.

“Don’t cry.”

Oh my heart! Cloak wasn’t stroking Stephen’s face--it was drying his tears...

(well, I did warn you there would be spoilers)

…tears from the deadly loss that just happened; tears from the choice he just made, regarding future vs. past…

…tears from having to part from Christine, all for the greater good…

💖 I love you, Cloak of Levitation.💖

It’s written on my skin

Title: It’s written on my skin

Pairing: Dean x Reader:

Word Count: 1700

Request: Whatever mark you get on your skin your soulmate gets it too so one day, you just kind of just get a sharpie and start writing on your skin. You definitely didn’t expect to get a reply, but you did. Now it’s five in the morning and you’re just about covered in ink and this will be a pain to wash off later.

A/N: I love this AU prompt and it was much fun to write it :) I hope you like it too


For some reasons People never really talked about it. About the marks that suddenly appeared on your body without any logical explanation. Sometimes even without a real reason. Maybe they were scared about it. Maybe they didn’t wanted it to be real. Maybe they thought there would be a greater good behind it and maybe they also thought, that they weren’t important enough to deserve a soulmate.

But nevertheless, these marks were there and everyone had them. One had more than others and some people had them on spots they never got to see like a scar behind their ears or inside of their mouth because of a surgery. 

They were there and it meant that there was someone out in this world who had them too. Marks that appeared on the body of your soulmate as soon as they appeared on your own body. Marks that could be anything, from scars to tattoos. Whatever mark you got on your skin, your soulmate got it too.

You’d noticed it for the first time in the winter of the 3rd grade when a large scar appeared on the inside of your right thigh. It had scared you at first but you decided to keep it to yourself. You hadn’t hurt yourself and the scar didn’t caused any other harm besides the fact that it was there. It didn’t mattered to you and by the next summer where you walked around in shorts and dresses, it was almost completely faded away. 

More scars appeared and your parents began to notice them. While your Dad freaked out completely about it, your Mom remained calm and explained to you, what most of the population of the world never dared to say out loud. Soulmates were real and this was the evidence for it. It was about that time when your Mom started to show you the marks on her body too and then you finally understood why your Mom and her younger sister were wearing the same Elvis tattoo, even though your Mom wasn’t a big fan.

For a long time the marks continued to be just scars and you’d asked yourself more than a hundred times what the hell your soulmate was doing. It wasn’t that the scars bothered you, in fact they were much lighter and less visible than real scars. What bothered you was that every time a new scar appeared on your skin, the fear for the life of this stranger grew. If this stranger had so many scars and got them so often, how long would it take until they didn’t recovered from whatever happened to them? What if this stranger died? What would happen to you and the marks on your skin?

The tattoo appeared a few days before you turned seventeen and this time you couldn’t stay calm about it, even though you tried. It was huge and covered most part of your chest right above your left breast. At first you didn’t even knew what it was and what it meant but then you found out that it was apparently some sort of protection and you were glad that your soulmate had it. Maybe this meant that the scars would come less often. 

They didn’t.

Roosje: So how was the dance kids? Sorry your father and I couldn’t come outside when you came home. We were too busy celebrating having the house to ourselves. 

Aurora: Mother…

Reid: It was great! Greater than going camping and laying around trees! 

Roosje: Is Silv still sleeping? 

Reid: Yeah she didn’t have a good night?

Roosje: Why was that?

Aurora: Mother, I have an inquiry. I am not pleased with the decisions that Silvia is making when it comes to her partner choice. I wish to intervene. With Uncle Auggy, what did you do?

Roosje: Me? I just blackmailed that woman out of our lives… If you want I can.

Aurora: I don’t think it’s advisable to blackmail a teenager. 

Roosje: What has he been doing? 

Reid: He’s just a jerkface. 

Roosje: Does she see him as a jerk? 

Aurora: The sad part is, she doesn’t…
