but i thought it was only far for it to have one

apparently today is 12 years since jac’s first ep so naturally i’m feeling all emotional over this!!! i always wonder if rosie knew all those years ago just what an iconic character jac would come to be, and if she ever dreamt that over a decade later she’d still be such a central part of the show and more loved than ever

jac is one of those characters who everyone knows even if they don’t watch the show, her reputation precedes her (as always). i only started the show last summer but growing up i always remember knowing who jac naylor was, it’s crazy to think she’s been around since i was only 9 years old!!! and like i said, i didn’t even watch it back then but she’s always been something of a legend in british tv imo

and when i did eventually get into holby, it was because of her. i’ve had a lot of favourite characters in my life so far (as you all know), some of them helping me at different times for different reasons, but i honestly think jac has had a bigger impact on me than just about any of them. she means so much to me in so many ways and i know so many others feel the same, and i think that’s just amazing because most of that is down to rosie making her so human and relatable

basically, i’m so grateful to rosie for 12 years of the most amazing character and the best scenes, and hopefully for many more years still to come. and i really knows how much she and jac have changed so many lives for the better

When the bookstore at the mall put up its help wanted posters, I jumped at the chance to put in my application. Between being an avid reader who had practically lived amongst the store’s shelves in high school and a broke community college student taking a semester off to save money, it seemed still customer service.

The final scene in Monster Bash addressed what we all thought, that Star was rushing things too much in this half of season. She had all the best intentions, obviously, but still didn’t stop to think, to plan, for a moment - and Eclipsa’s influence, despite how little they talked together so far, didn’t help for sure. As soon as Star got over her nasty obsession heartache for Marco’s smell she seemingly set onto changing her life for good. Become a better princess, improve Mewni. Maybe she didn’t stop even for a moment because she feared she might have relapsed into her old habits of leaving things unfinished, running away at the first difficulty, and that’s why she was annoyed by Marco’s return at first in Lint Catcher: Not because she didn’t want him back in her life, but because she was scared of what it could have lead to (this obviously turned out not to be the case, since if anything Marco is the most supportive person she has).

Could this “youthful rashness” apply to Tomstar as well, though? In Club Snubbed Star was initially clear on what she’d have liked Tom to be: a friend. But she was quick, even too quick, to change idea in the following episode, as soon as she saw in him a “kindred spirit”, someone who was going through a similar situation of great changes (plus great duties from being a royal heir). 

Could the accelerated pace at which Tomstar happened be blamed on the writers wanting to find a quick and easy way to add drama to the mix, or (and I truly hope it’s this second case) it was all part of Star “rushing things to a fault” new style of life? Tom’s behavior and priorities didn’t match Star’s ones in Monster Bash, but this got fixed before the end of the episode, making up for some good growth moments for Star. The opposite didn’t get addressed further, though: Star’s priorities and expectations in their relationship didn’t seem to match Tom’s ones, and I don’t think this can be blamed on how busy with the planning she was. While Tom wanted to kiss, Star reacted in a playful, almost childish way.

Could this be Star’s version of the events addressed in Sophomore Slump? Just like Marco couldn’t put full effort into his relationship with Jackie because part of his heart was always with Star (because let’s be real here, the issues where there way before The Battle For Mewni, even when Star was still living on Earth), Star can’t be fully invested in her relationship with Tom not only because she was too busy with Mewni, but because that’s not what she truly wants, just what she thought she needed. 


Is it possible that just like Star tried to change Mewni overnight, just to realize that’s not as easy as it seems, she might have also tried to change her feelings for Marco way too quickly for her own good?

I Gift to You

@restlessandordinary OKAY, two things. One, I had this idea in my head and it is probably WAY different than you originally planned. Sorry about that. Two, this is later than I told you I would get it out. Sorry about that. Three, if you’ve got an AO3, I would like to have it so that I can gift this to you, since it is longer than a normal drabble and can stand as a oneshot. 

————————————————————————–


               The first time it happened, Draco swore it was just a slip up. He wouldn’t do it again. Nope. Potter certainly didn’t deserve his generosity. Because that was exactly what this was. People didn’t give him enough credit when it came to being nice.

               It’s just that the sight of the eleven-year-old in glasses that weren’t fitting his face, were horribly old, fading in color and just not aesthetically pleasing, had him wanting to rectify this travesty immediately. This wasn’t because he cared or anything. Nope. This was doing everyone else a favor. Really. It benefited society by no one having to see the hideous specs.

               Draco timed it perfectly. He knew that Potter tended to spend longer eating than everyone else. Certainly, longer than Weasley. The redhead inhaled food quicker than he did air. So, when Potter was about to leave for his morning class, Draco signaled the school owl that he had trained to wait for his mark. It took weeks to train the bloody bird. The only problem was that the bird was now attached to him. Which hadn’t been previously intended. At least the owl had proper taste.

               The brown barn owl swooped down, catching the attention of a few stragglers but otherwise the notice was limited.

               Confusion was the first expression that Draco could make out. He knew that the Gryffindor probably wondered why his snowy owl hadn’t delivered the mail, but the boy was too curious to not open it. Not exactly the smartest thing to do but that was just his own suspicious nature coming forward.

               The confusion quickly bled into shock before a genuinely pleased glint appeared in the brunette’s eyes.

               Instructions had been placed in the package, because Draco knew that intelligence was the reason the reckless idiot hadn’t been placed into Ravenclaw. The glasses were charmed to stay on his face until the wearer wished them off. They would mold to the user’s needs, whether the eye sight got worse with age or not. Not to mention, the frames would change to match the user’s outfit, ensuring that they remain elegant at all times. Which was a deal breaker in his opinion.

               Draco’s resolve to allow this to be a brief moment of weakness and a onetime instance, shattered at the flush on Potter’s face and a shy grin flickered on the Gryffindor’s lips.

               Salazar, this wasn’t supposed to happen. The git wasn’t allowed to make him feel like this. Draco Lucius Malfoy doesn’t do sappy feelings.

               Angrily, Draco made his way swiftly towards the entrance, inwardly cursing Potter’s existence. It wasn’t until he almost reached the door that he heard Longbottom’s question.

               “Oh, wow. Those are pretty expensive. Who sent them to you?”

               “No idea.” Potter’s tone was a little awed. “The note just says, ‘To fix your face, finally’.”

 —————————————————————-

               Draco was determined that the second time still be counted as a slip up. This wasn’t going to be a regular thing. Nope. Not at all. Because that was just silly. Draco Lucius Malfoy doesn’t do nice things for other people. Especially to Potter.

               Unfortunately, the delivery was not as well timed as last year’s gift. The other two members of the Idiotic Trio were still around.

               He watched his the school owl struggle to carry the packages and it caused a twinge of guilt inside Draco. He couldn’t trust any other owls to do the job, so the bird would have to do it alone.

               When Potter looked to the owl, it was clear that he recognized the bird. The Gryffindor reached out a hand to softly pet the owl before opening the packages with gusto.

               Draco couldn’t hear what was going on from where he sat, but he could tell that the other boy had gasped. It was the way the eyes widened, and his mouth dropped open slowly. Which was a great reaction so far. He knew that his gift would mean something. Not that he cared about that.

               The silence was killing him. He needed to know what was being said. Draco slowly made to the end of the table, pretending that he was listening to a few of his housemate’s conversations before using that as a reason to go a different route towards the exit.

               Just as he passed, he caught the beginning of Weasley’s questions.

               “What is it? Why would someone send you books full of scribbles?”

               Draco rolled his eyes and sighed heavily. Scribbles. That one actually hurt.

               “It’s not scribbles, Ron!” Granger corrected. “I think it’s in Parseltongue.”

               “It is.” Potter whispered, fingers running over the title of the first book. Behind the Wonders of Parseltongue Volume I: The History of the Snake Language and Why it’s a Blessing and Not a Curse.

               “Why do you think they sent it?” Weasley asked, eyeing the book warily.

               “To send me a message.” Answered Potter, placing the book in his lap, only to pick up the second one. Behind the Wonders ofParseltongue Volume II: The Astonishing Accomplishments that Parseltongue has Brought to the World.

               “What message? Because they think you are Slytherin’s Heir?”

               Draco wasn’t going to even bother coming up with a mental reply for that one.

               “No.” Potter shook his head. “So that I can love all parts of me. Even the ones that are perceived as evil.”

               The insight had Draco fighting off a flush. That was not his intention… not exactly. He just hated the thought of others degrading Potter’s ability just because they don’t understand it. There is nothing wrong with being a Parselmouth. It wasn’t dark, vile or even evil.

               “Does the note say who it’s from?” There was suspicion in Granger’s tone, which had Draco scoffing internally. If he had wanted to harm Potter, he would have. It’s not like the brunette even spell checks the gifts. Which was actually pretty moronic, but that was just Draco’s thought on the matter.

               “No, it just says, ‘To learn something, for once’.”

 ————————————————————–

               The evidence against this being a onetime incident was becoming a reach, even in Draco’s own mind. But that was beside the point.

               So far, this would probably be his worst idea yet. This was getting rather personal… but he couldn’t allow this year to continue with the mass hysteria that everyone walked around with. Not when it was a farce to begin with.

               This time, he chose to have Russet—not that he named the infernal bird—deliver the gift during a nighttime study session the Idiotic Trio were having in the Library.

               When a light scratching drew Potter’s attention to the window next to him, Draco stepped into the shadows of an alcove.

               “Oh, it’s you.” Potter’s voice took a happy glint to it.

               Draco watched him rip of the packaging and freeze. This was a normal reaction, but he just hoped that the brunette wouldn’t become angry.

               News clippings, articles posted in obscure news outlets, court records and even statements made by the accused where staring up at Potter.

               He watched Potter’s brow furrow slightly with each passing minute until he was full blown frowning as each parchment was leafed through.

               “Hermione!” Potter whisper yelled as his voice cracked.

               “What? What is it? Oh, your anonymous friend sent you something?” Granger hadn’t looked up from her book on Medieval Flobberworms and Why They Were the Downfall of Mermish Society, as she walked down the aisle.

               “Hermione, can the Wizengamot sentence someone to Azkaban without a trial?”

               That caused Granger to peer up at him in confusion. “No, it violates several laws and is illegal.”

               Potter thrusted all of the articles harshly as Weasley came around the other side of the table and read over their shoulders.

               “Oh.” Granger whispered, blinking rapidly. “This isn’t good.”

               “Black is innocent, isn’t he?” There was a miserable confusion in Potter’s tone. But Draco couldn’t have admitted that he knew from his father that Black truly hadn’t been a Death Eater, without revealing sources.

               “Let me guess.” Weasley began sarcastically. “There’s no signature?”

               “Just a note that says, ‘To provide the proof that has always been there, idiot’.”

PART II


“You have third period free, right?” The boy that Y/N was partnered up with in chemistry, Chris, was standing next to her locker. He nodded. “I’ll meet you at the library tomorrow, then? See how much we can get done. God, I just hate how Mrs. Lewis just piles these things on us as if we have nothing else to do,” Y/N switched the books she had in her hands for the ones needed for homework that night.

A ruckus down the hall caught Chris’s attention, but Y/N knew who it was. Chris looked over Y/N’s shoulder. Y/N rolled her eyes, getting ready for the interaction. Chris sighed.

“I’ll see you tomorrow, alright? We can go over the homework, too. I’m sure I’ll have some questions,” Chris started backing away as Billy and his friends got closer.  

“See you tomorrow!” Y/N called out to Chris. He gave a wave and turned around down the hall.

“Don’t leave on my account, Williams,” Billy yelled down the hall, his voice booming. Chris ignored him and turned down the connecting hall that would lead him to the parking lot.

“Hey! I’m talking to you, Williams!” Billy’s voice turned menacing as he and his friends made their way after him. Y/N grabbed Billy by the back of his jean jacket, trying to hold him back.

What are you doing?!” Y/N screeched at Billy. Billy whipped around, cornering Y/N at her locker. He slammed his hands on either side of her head, making her jump.

Loki’s Future

some random thoughts/meta after watching Ragnarok (a good ass film™️)

- After watching Ragnarok, I was struck by how similar in appearance Loki is to Hela. Same slim face and build, same pale skin, and even the same black hair. They both prefer blades to fight with and magic to communicate with. Hell, their wardrobe color schemes even match. This raised some questions for me when I was watching the film; why this deliberate choice, and how much does Loki’s appearance have an effect on how Odin treats him, in this film and others? Thor is Hela’s sister, yet we’ve seen that Odin treats Thor very, very differently to Hela and later Loki. Does Loki with his black hair and magic just remind Odin too much of his own shitty decisions? It would explain a lot about why he acts like such a dick to Loki, even when Loki was a child and not killing anyone (as far as we know haha, that kid coulda done anything)

- But there’s gotta be more to it than that. The similarities in appearance may well be Taika’s nod to the original Norse myths, but it occurred to me that it’s way too obvious a similarity, and could be pointing to something a little more complex. In the original myths, Hela is actually Loki’s daughter. Coincidence? I think not! Add this to the fact that in the mythology Loki also has a son, a gigantic wolf called Fenrir, who we also see in Ragnarok, I think there’s plenty of evidence pointing to the fact that Loki has some greater importance and connection to Asgard, running deeper than him simply being a Jotun war prize. For me it’s just too much of a coincidence that Hela and Loki are a) strongly connected in the source material b) have strongly similar appearances, fighting styles and love for chaos (to a certain extent, their characters are similar) and c) are both ‘children’ of Odin. On one of Loki’s bad days, you could call them twins. Why though? It’s been reeeeally bugging me, but I just can’t work out a direct connection, or reason as to why Hela’s character had to be built to resemble Loki.

- One answer to this is a theory I read that Loki is in fact Hela’s son. (Yeah, I know, that sounds deranged when you think about it.) The timelines align such that Hela could very easily have invaded Jotunheim with Odin before Loki’s birth. There she could have had, through some means or other, a child with Laufey, and then later abandoned it due to ‘weakness’. So… a hybrid. Loki even has black hair when he’s in his Jotun form, and that’s really fucking unusual - no other frost giant is even similar - he LOOKS like a hybrid of Hela and Laufey. Although there’s a few things off about this theory, and the MCU will probably never confirm or go into enough detail about it, AND it also makes Loki Thor’s nephew (!!!wtf!) AND Odin would have also have to have known about it the whole time (albeit explaining his behaviour), it does give reason and a cause to the weird connection and similarities between the two.

- Loki and the Tesseract. Ooooooooohhh my god. So we basically KNOW that he has it, as although we don’t see him take it in Ragnarok, it’s strongly implied, and he also is literally holding it in the leaked trailer for Infinity War. (I appreciate that some ppl don’t want to watch the leaked trailer, but it confirms he has it) Why is this important? The Tesseract is an Infinity Stone. It has power Loki knows how to use, and he’s one of the few that do. What’s Infinity War about? Infinity Stones, and Thanos. The same Thanos who’s on the hunt for Loki AND the Tesseract. I honestly don’t think Loki’s taken it for some world domination shit this time round, I think he’s taken it for power and leverage. He’s acting intelligently and planning far ahead. This is given extra gravity when you remember that Loki is the only one in the Infinity War lineup who has met and knows Thanos, and that honestly did not go well for Loki at all.

- (On a side note, I just want to talk about Loki and Thanos; it’s been theorised/discussed for ages that Thanos met Loki in the void after his fall from Asgard in Thor 1, and gave him a deal: the mission of capturing Earth, finding the Tesseract, and the tools to do so. Now, Loki’s not really one to make deals unless he can subvert them, and so the whole way through Avengers his motives for attack to me seemed uncharacteristically illogical, although I can understand his primal emotional reasons for wanting to rule. But we also saw him looking very, very ill at the beginning of that film and in the Thor 1 credits scene, and being in obvious pain - he looked like a damn meth addict. Some fans have also noted that his eyes look blue during some scenes in Avengers, like he’s being mind controlled. I completely agree with this theory: that Thanos, recognising Loki’s power, tortured him, (with heat and fire, because how else do you torture a Jotun? It explains his appearance and injuries) and mind controlled him to enact the events of Avengers. And everything that happens thereafter in the MCU makes soooo much more sense when you think about it from the torture perspective. It explains a lot about the ‘big picture’ behind all of Loki’s decisions since. He has angered the most powerful man in the universe twice: failing in giving Thanos the Tesseract, AND remaining alive.

- Which brings me back to my point - Loki is the only one who has any possible comprehension of what’s coming, so taking the Tesseract easily interprets as him acting impulsively for reasons of his own safety, and possibly the safety of those around him (he takes it after his ‘redemption’ arc). I think he still has some kind of connection or knowledge of Thanos’ presence, maybe from torture, and he can sense when shit is about to go down - and we see the beginning of it going down at the end of Ragnarok. He’s also keeping his possession of it a secret, and for obvious reasons. Knowing he’d just taken the same item that he screwed everything up for last time would completely ruin his new trust-bond ‘redemption’ arc with Thor (I kinda hate using the word redemption tho - it’s obvious from Dark World that that’s not what Loki wants or really cares about) so, he’s going to use it in some kind of bamboozle, dodgy deal, Loki-esque interaction in the future .

- I really really reeaallllyy hope they don’t just turn Loki ‘back’ into a villain in IW. It would be an insult his character and the character work Taika’s done in Ragnarok. At this point it’s weak, cheap and easy character development and a trope that’s extremely overplayed. However, HOWEVER. It would equally break my heart to see him fall completely into the other side - the role of martyrdom, righteousness and self-sacrifice in IW. We already have dozens of characters who do that, and what makes Loki more loved than all of them is that he can do both - when and how he acts is fascinating to watch. He’s every inch a chaotic neutral, and I hope so much that Marvel keeps it like that. He survives because he has no morals, likes to play both sides and he’s smart about it. It makes him compelling, godamnit.

- With Tom’s movie contract and the amount of times they’ve ‘killed’ him off already, it’s looking likely he’ll survive Infinity War. (Not looking so good for Thor though 😭IW is seriously gonna kill me too)

- Some more mythology stuff… Although in the MCU Loki’s plot usefulness is as more of a ‘bad guy’ and not he’s not a central enough character to justify such an in depth plotline, there are plenty more things the myths can give him. For example, his own honest relationships, outside of Asgard’s influence. Loki has most likely experienced a much wider range of people, creatures and places in the universe than average. He’s got lots of little secrets tucked away. For example, in mythology he has another son, called Jormungand, a giant serpent. Not likely J will ever make it to the screen though, sadly. I think that the serpent shapeshifting story in Ragnarok was perhaps a nod to that. So was Odin’s 6-legged horse Sleipnir, another of Loki’s sons.

Secondly, and of greater interest to me: in the myths, Loki has a wife called Sigyn, the goddess of intelligence. (I love her already…) with whom he has these strange animalistic (likely shapeshifting) children. Now, I know IW is really too late along his storyline to be introducing someone like Sigyn, let alone as a love interest, but god damn would it be awesome if they did. Maybe it’s just me, but I think it would be truly satisfying and also extremely entertaining to see Loki get himself a girl. Superhero movies are so often plagued by the oppressive American binary of good and evil, wherein the good guy always gets the girl, and the villain is always miserable. Seeing Loki, (a character who we know consciously does bad things and fits very well the evil stereotype, but does good things as well, and plays both sides entirely to his own benefit) get the typical stamp of a good guy would make for a more interesting, rule-breaking plot. Please, MCU, don’t let Loki fall into this binary! Let him be both! It’s what made him so extremely damn popular! that and the fact that he’s smart and funny and Tom is extremely fucking hot lol

- I also really wanna see a bit more of his magical abilities - in his villain role so far we’ve been shown he’s smarter than half the MCU, extremely skilled in in magic and combat with knives, he can teleport, he can create illusions, he can fuck with people’s heads and more. His Valkyrie knife standoff scene was interesting in Ragnarok - I’m 100% sure he deliberately lost to Valkyrie to gain access to her memories- but Thor mentioned something way more interesting: Loki is a shapeshifter. And a really good one; he’s basically in a constant shift from Jotun to Asgardian. But to animals? That’s really fucking cool, and the snake story shows how easily he can hide in plain sight. (Y’all can get the cat!Loki y’all have always wanted.) Idk I just really wanna see more of what he can do. I think further abilities/aspects of his fighting style and personality will be revealed in future though, because having the Tesseract and knowing Thanos makes him into a major plot point for IW.

- lastly can I just say I’m really digging the 80s/rock soundtrack aesthetic Marvel is pushing for

- and the c i n e m a t o g r a p h y!! Got damn.

- just protect him please for the love of all that is holy.

- That is all. Thanks for reading my ramblings. Xxxx.

anonymous asked:

hello! i don't personally ship she/ith but also no hate on you at all, just curious: how can you see their hugs as romantic? they're the only people who hug that way in vld (clasping hands and pulling each other into a hug,with pats on the back) and uhhh the only characters who hugged the literal same way (like, it's /literally/ the same if you look at screencaps) are bolin and mako from lok (same studio) and they're brothers so this kinda hug has clearly no romantic intentions ahhhh thoughts?

Hi! Okay, so first some ground things.This isn’t Korra. We have our own set of actual siblings (Matt and Pidge) in VLD to look at and compare sheith interactions to in the context of this universe, and there’s a very deliberate difference. Here’s something from one of my previous metas:

  • Speaking of intimacy, let’s look at how the first hug we see for sheith turns out and the way the first hug between Pidge and Matt goes. Again, one is framed and presented as distinctly romantic and intimately private, while the other is clearly familial:

The fact that Allura peers in on the first sheith hug and then guiltily looks away, like she was caught doing something she shouldn’t have–it makes the scene feel like a very intrusive moment. A stolen moment between just the two of them. There’s also the fact that everyone else is saying goodbye while these two appear to be off in their own little world. The way the camera angles to look similar to a couple sharing a kiss, the fact that you can see Keith’s hand has moved further down Shiro’s back as he tugged him closer–these are very distinctly romantic cues. So yeah, there are unique connotations here that should really be taken into account, and they speak of an intimacy far beyond the depths of casual brotherhood. 

And again, the concept of this being a distinctly sibling way to hug in either VLD or Korra falls apart at the seams when it’s not something that our actual sibling characters in Voltron ever do. There’s just no basis for it here in-universe. And here’s another hug literally outright stated as brotherly that doesn’t conform to that notion in VLD and is so obviously far less intimate than sheith’s:

Also, “they’re the only people who hug that way in VLD”–wrong. Shiro hugs Matt the same way, and that sure isn’t his brother either:

From this, we can assume that’s simply the way Shiro hugs people. It’s like his trademark thing. However, there’s a world of difference between Matt’s response and Keith’s. Matt leads with, “It’s good to see you, um, sir.” The stilted wording, the forced note of professionalism, the utter surprise and obvious discomfort at being pulled into a hug all of a sudden. Went in for a handshake, got a hug. Matt wasn’t prepared for this, and he sees it as some kind of breach in assumed boundaries. He and Shiro aren’t casual or close with one another in the way Shiro and Keith are. They just don’t share that easy intimacy. 

Both times Shiro and Keith hug, you can see how genuinely touched and moonstruck Keith looks. In the second hug, you can see “Shiro” really shares this loving gaze–it’s a softness neither of them ever exhibit when embracing anyone else. And it definitely feels romantic in tone. Their heartfelt goodbye is literally followed by everyone else on the team either tearing up or inwardly cheering them on. It’s really very sweet. And when you compare the way they come together to the start of Matt and Shiro’s hug, the difference is blatantly obvious. 

I also think it’s underappreciated just how amazing this open closeness and vulnerability is for someone like Keith. A quick thing from one of my earlier metas about Keith’s comfort level with the rest of the team:

  • There are a couple times when someone grabs him and he tenses or freezes up. Keith tells the Arusion he “doesn’t usually hug strangers” and that much is clear when you see his initial response to a lot of physical contact. So you get things like:
  • As opposed to:
  • I think Keith being so calm and touchy feely around Shiro also has a lot to do with the fact that that not only are they closer, but Shiro understands and adheres to his boundaries. In every other hug, the other person just grabs Keith and he doesn’t really get any say in it. He also looks startled at first before he can kinda ease into it. With Shiro, they both reach out and walk into the hug together, so it’s the one time when Keith really gets any choice in the matter. I’ve talked about it more here if you’re interested 

And again, this isn’t Korra. That being said, there are other noticeable comparisons between Shiro and Keith that can be made with characters in Korra–most notably Korra and Asami. In the first you’ll notice how Korra and Keith appear to have nearly the same expression when holding onto their loved one. And in the latter comparison, it’s obvious that a couple lovingly embracing while their family and friends looks on in support and maybe even tears up at their relationship is a clear sign of a romantic trope:

So yeah. Within the context of the series, I can still very easily read all the sheith hugs romantically. For me, it makes the most sense for that level of intimacy they indulge in. I understand if others prefer to interpret their interactions as platonic, but given all the other hugs and levels of intimacy presented in the series, a romantic connotation makes by far the most sense to me.

okay so i’ve gotten a lot of requests to do a retold fairytale about pocahontas, which is a really reasonable thing to request since i’ve done so many retold tales about disney movies, but here’s the thing

pocahontas the movie is easily one the most messed up things that modern media has ever produced, and i’ll belt out color of the wind like nobody’s business, but that doesn’t change the fact that disney took a history about lying, abduction, rape, and torture and … turned it into a love story. which. what. who thought that was a good idea???

so. look. this is the only retold fairytale i have in me for pocahontas. i know it’s not what anyone who requested this actually wanted, so. sorry.

we’ll keep disney’s aged up premise and characters, because the truth is just too sad to touch at all. we’ll keep pocahontas as her name, because it wasn’t her real name (her real name was matoaka).

okay here we go

we have pocahontas, the young daughter of chief powhatan. she is spirited and flighty, having no fear of jumping off waterfalls or any other manner of dangerous things. what does she fear? growing up, responsibility, having to be a grown woman in her tribe and all that that entails, of being forced into a marriage she doesn’t want.

she grew up with kokoum, she knows him, he is a good man and a strong man, he will provide for her everything she could need or want – but she doesn’t think that’s a good enough reason to marry him. he’s a good leader, he’ll probably be elected to replace her father when the time comes, and she will move on from being the daughter of the chief to the wife of the chief.

something in her rankles at being the daughter of, the wife of, to being just ‘of’ anything.

Nursey was sitting at his desk, trying to get through a paper on the importance of sewers in Les Mis, when Dex slammed open their door, marched straight for their bunk beds, and flopped down face first onto Nursey’s bottom bunk.

Nursey was a bit too surprised to protest. Instead, he stared at Dex for a long moment, more confused than anything, before Dex said, “I’m done,” into Nursey’s pillow, and Nursey blinked.

He glanced back at his paper for a moment, before he spun in his desk chair to face Dex entirely, as he prompted, “Done with…?” expecting to hear Dex complain about an assignment, or his family, or the particularly hard practice they’d had that morning, and more or less ready for it. He had a few things he wanted to complain about as well, and Dex was always a good person to complain with.

However, instead of saying any of that, Dex said, “I’m never dating anybody ever again,” and it left Nursey even more confused than he’d been before.

Still, Dex didn’t offer up any more information on the topic so, after a moment, Nursey asked, “Are you… dating somebody?” sounding more incredulous than he’d meant to, but apparently not enough to earn him a glare from Dex.

Instead, Dex’s face stayed pressed into Nursey’s pillow as he said, “Was, Nurse. We just broke up,” and Nursey felt like the entire world had tilted on its axis.

She is…

A Harry Styles imagine

Based on this request:

Hey could you plzz do an imagine of you not feeling well throughout the day and Harry comes hone and is kinda pissed at you for some reason and you suddenly faint while you arguing. After in the hospital he feels so bad and is worried and it ends with fluff

Enjoy! Requests are open!

~

Ever since you woke up this morning, you’ve been feeling a bit…off. Not the “I’m getting sick” or “something bad is about to happen” kind of off, but there was something that tied a knot in the pit of stomach that has remained there ever since. When you first woke up, you noticed Harry, your boyfriend of almost one and a half year, being gone, even though he was supposed to have few more days off to spend with you before going to do his shows in Australia. You at first hestitated to text him, but you did anyways, asking him where had he gone, but received no reply. Deciding against doing something more or less productive while waiting for Harry to return, hoping he had only ran out to catch some take out, since you had been craving it during the night, even going as far as waking your him up in hopes that he might go and fetch you some, but without a luck. As you tiptoed down the downstairs, the cold floor hitting your bare feet, a sudden feeling of dizziness took over you, making you grip the shelves on the wall next to the stairway, accidentally knocking over a few of Harry’s old childhood pictures, most of them gifted by Robin on his last birthday. Seeing the pictures lying on the floor with shreds of glass around them made you even more dizzy, as Harry had been having a hard time coping with the sad news ever since he passed away. Once you had gained your ability to walk and see straight, you wasted no time in trying to clean the mess up, hoping to fix the broken frames before Harry notices something being out of place, seeing that these were somehow similar to the frames you had recently bought and still had in spare. But the recent mishaps seemed to be following you around as you went, and, as you were picking up the last small pieces of the remaining shreds, a sudden bolt of the door shutting startled you, making you accidentally cut yourself in the palm of your hand. Harry’s heavy boots echoed though the otherwise empty and quiet house, making you inwardly curse to yourself for being so clumsy, knowing a storm is about to hit you.

“(Y/N)! Where are you? I bought some food I thought you might like, to make up fo- what is this?!” He asked in disbelief, at first not noticing you crouched over the broken frames.

“Harry, I-I can explain, I’m so-“

“Sorry? You are sorry?! You broke them!!! With the pictures Robin himself gave me as a present!! How could you be so heartless?? You know how much they mean to me!!” He raged, kicking the bucket full of scraps, sending them flying across the floor. He bent down, trying to pick up the pictures himself, with you trying to help.

“Leave it, you have done enough already” he spat, gripping your wounded hand in order to stop you from even touching them, making pain shoot right through you.

“Harry, I said I’m sorry, it was an accident…” you breathed out, silent tears sliding down your cheeks.

“No. No, (Y/N). Don’t start this. At first you cancel our last night’s plans, because you “just felt like staying in”, even though we were not the only ones going and I had to find a silly excuse as to why, then you wake me up god knows how early just to tell me that you want food, and now this! What is wrong with you?!?” He fumed, but his rant became more distant with time and once again the feeling of dizziness took over you, this time sending you in the depths of darkness, making the shards of glass pierce your skin as your body hit the floor.


Harry’s POV


I was livid. The last few days have been a mess - so much to do, yet so little time. Not to mention the lack of sleep. The making of new music, arranging the new additional tour dates and interviews, making sure I get everything done before I take off to Australia was taking its toll on me. And her. (Y/N). God forgive me for leaving her like this the whole time. I’ve missed her so much, and the thought of me leaving her has been driving me mad. Especially this time, even though I cannot fully understand why. Every minute spent together with her has been leading me to the edge of breaking, either in tears or rage, and this time rage took over. It’s not like she has done anything wrong, no. It’s just that the more time we spend together alone, the more I don’t want to leave, making me consider postponing the tour, to which my management would never agree to. And the fans…

Last night we were supposed to go out for a nice dinner with my team, making it important to actually show up, since I was the one who initially came up with the idea. Having to lie made me angry, not because I could not understand that (Y/N) was not feeling her best, but the fact that she realised that only an hour before the actual meeting, making me look bad infront of important people. Even though I was more than glad to finally get a good night’s sleep, (Y/N) decided otherwise, which is the reason for my cranky mood today, since I had refused to get up, guilt eating me, as I felt her shuffle further away from me, mumbling a “sorry” as she did so. Waking up this morning, however, was when I decided I cannot keep up my behaviour and took a drive to the nearest take out place, knowing very well she would forgive me for being a massive dick. I don’t even want to talk about what happened when I arrived home. Something inside of me just snapped…

Seeing her fall, however, was the worst feeling I’ve felt in a long time. Watching the love of my life fall on top of a layer of scraps that I had initially scattered there in the fit of rage I was having, made me sick in my stomach, and seeing her unconscious and bleeding just about broke my heart. I rushed towards her and craddled her in my arms, shaking her for the dear life, hoping to see her beautiful eyes look up to me, telling me that this was all just a bad dream, and that everything is alright…

Once I took her to the hospital for the doctors to take care of her and find out what caused the fainting, praying to myself that I was not the reason behind it, I couldn’t help but to fear the worst. I kept repeating everything I said to her in my mind, wincing at how rude and unnecessary that was. I couldn’t help but to sob next to her bed, praying for her to wake up and forgive me, to hold me the way I’m holding her now and to tell me that everything is okay. That it will be okay… It will, right?

When the doctor came in, I couldn’t help but to jump up from my chair, asking him to give me the answers I oh so desperately wanted to know.

“Mr.Styles, you have got to calm down. The stitching was done professionally, so the scaring will be little to none with the right precautions taken. The fainting, however, is something I am more concerned about..” the doctor trailed off, making my heart sink.

“Wh-what is it?” I sniffled, not caring about anyone noticing my current state.

“Well, she has been lacking on the intake of vitamins, which, in her case, has lead this far, thus harming her immune system, not to mention the stress, but with the right diet and excercise, they should be fine.”

“I-I’m sorry, did I hear correct? They?”

Oh, yes, they. She is pregnant!

The Truth Comes Out

Summary: When Reggie your now ex-finds out you have moved on all thank to your new boyfriend Sweet Pea.

I hope you guys like this I got the idea when I was rewatching season 2. Don’t forget I take request so go ahead and ask.


You and Reggie dated for almost a year. But ever since you found out he was selling drugs you couldn’t take it anymore. There was only so much you could deal with when it came to Reggie.You forgave him during the whole playbook fiasco, you would turn the other cheek when he would flirt with other girls but dealing out the JJ was the last straw.

It’s been 2 weeks since you called it off with Reggie. You wanted to be alone so you went to  Whyte Wyrm to get a few drinks. The breakup really did hurt you. You thought Reggie loved you but you were so wrong.Its been 3 hours since you walked into the Wyrm and your just staring at your drink at this point. You zoned out so far you didn’t even hear the person next to you trying to get your attention.

“Hey, you’re on the wrong side of town you know.”

“Hello”

“You alright there beautiful?” Once he said beautiful you zoned back in. Taking notice a very handsome….hell hot guy sitting right next to you.

   “W-What did you say?”

“Well first off you’re on the wrong side of town but then I noticed the way you zoned out. Everything alright on the Northside Princess?”

  “Why do you even care?”

“Do you want me to be honest?”

  “Sure why not?”

“I saw a beautiful girl sitting at the bar alone drinking. So I thought I come keep you company.”

 “Your pretty cute you know,” You said under your breath knowing he wouldn’t hear you

“Your pretty cute your self Princess. The name is Sweet Pea”

 “Y/N”

And that’s what started a beautiful relationship

2 Months Later

“Baby girl wakes up you’re gonna be late for school.”

You and Sweet Pea have been together for two months now and they have been the best two months of your life. Two main reasons why this relationship is so much better than when you were with Reggie. 1 SP treated you right and he was so protective of you. If anyone even looked at you the wrong way they would end up in the hospital. Reason 2 and the most important reason you’re parents loved Sweet Pea. They saw how he respects you and that’s all they could ask of their daughters’ boyfriend. They liked SP so much they let you stay over at his house on the southside

  “ No, I just wanna stay with you and cuddle.”

“I can’t let you do that Princess.Come on I’ll drop you off”

At School

You were late but not so late.Everyone was inside so no one saw you being dropped off by a serpent.

“Alright, we’re here. Do you want me to pick you up after school?”

  “Yes please”

Before you could open the school doors SP whistles at you getting your attention.

“Hey……I love you baby girl” You smile and shake your head at him and blow him a kiss before you walked into the building

After School

Sweet Pea’s POV

I left school early so I would be on time to pick up Y/N. As I wait for her I lean on my bike getting looks from all the Northsiders that pass me. I looked for Y/N through the pool of teens but I overheard so guy say my girls’ name. I was instantly interested.

“So Reggie you gonna get back together with Y/N or what man,” I remember Y/N telling me about her toxic relationship with this Reggie guy.

“You know it Chris. It’s gonna totally be easy getting back with her all I have to do is tell her I’m sorry and I’ll never do it again. Plus she was so damn easy you know what I mean. “ That’s it no one talks about my girl like that.

“She’s not gonna take up back bulldog.” I justs face forward I don’t even my death stair.

“How would you know. You’re just a Southside nobody”

“I know damn well because I’m Y/N boyfriend.”

“As if Y/N would stoop so low as to date a serpent over all of this”

Before I could ever punch him Y/N walk up to us

“Is everything okay here?”

“Everything is fine babe.Let’s ride” Before she put the helmet on her head I pulled her into me and gave her a long heated kiss. Right in front of that jackass that thinks he can have my Y/N back.


It’s literally 2:53am for me I couldn’t sleep so I wrote this I hope you all enjoyed it.

When Jin tried to playfully lift you up off the ground while hugging you, you instantly pushed him away and backed off, trying to make it look like no big deal. Leaving Jin to think that he did something wrong. Once you shamefully explained that you felt you were too heavy to pick up, Jin wrapped his arm around you and held you closely to him “You know i’m the strongest of us all right baby?”


Suga-

You were casually sitting beside Yoongi on the couch when you both decided to head to bed. He decided to mess around and try to lift you bridal style to your bedroom. You planted your feet to the ground and pushed him away, laughing nervously. He gave you a confused look but left it alone. When Yoongi brought it back up in bed together, you told him how you thought you were too heavy to pick up. Yoongi sighed and shook his head. “Have you seen my big ass muscles?” He teased. “Baby I can lift a car.”

Hoseok was such a playful and loving boyfriend and that’s one of the things you loved best about him. But sometimes he takes it too far for your liking. While walking hand in hand with him one day, he suddenly went behind you to wrap his arms around your waist and lift you up. You intermediately screamed for him to put you down and get away so he did so with a shocked look on his face. After you explained to him that you were too heavy for him to pick up, Hoseok sighed and pressed his lips to your cheek lovingly. “Baby that’s not true. But if you don’t like it, I won’t do it.”

Namjoon was always so respectful and laid back but he had his moments. While holding you tight one day, he tapped the bottom of your thighs, indicating that he wanted you to jump up on him.You instantly pushed away from him and shook your head no. He knew something was off immediately. Once you explained to him that you felt you were too heavy for him to pick up, Namjoon looked at you with sad eyes. “Not true whatsoever but if you’re not comfortable with it baby, I won’t try it again.”

After Jimin tried lifting you up out of nowhere, causing a distressed you to kick and scream for him to put you down, you ran off in tears and ashamed. Leaving Jimin thinking he did something wrong. Once you were both able to talk at the end of the day, you told him about how you felt you were too heavy to pick up. Jimin only smiled that gorgeous smile and moved his face centimeters away from yours. “Okay baby, just dont scare me like that again. I thought you were mad at me!”

When Taehyung playfully decided to pick you up, you went into panic mode and became flustered while telling him to get off of you. Taehyung was confused and slightly hurt until you told him that you were too heavy for him to be picking up. He shook his head and gave you a silly face. “Believe what you want, silly cutie pie.”


Jungkook-

Originally posted by kookiegyeom

Jungkook tried scooping you up to take you to your bedroom, causing you to jump up and back away from him. He asked what was up and you finally told him. “ I’m too heavy for you, Kookie…” Jungkook suddenly swooped you up in his arms and held you tightly to him, like you were a little feather.  “I’m literally the strongest of us all, baby. You KNOW this.”

I’ve been running my fingers over my heart. I’ve been feeling the cracks it sustained the last time it broke, and gingerly touching the jagged edges from my last attempt at putting it back together. I fixed it to the best of my ability, but I’m still missing a few pieces. Can I reclaim the ones I gave away while loving people that left? Is that allowed? It’d be nice to feel full, even with cracks swirling around the surface like battle scars. It’d be nice to love with everything in me, instead of encasing this heart in walls. I’ve grown far too used to fear. When I love, I love hard, I spill myself into people that seem willing to hold me with no regard for things like appearing graceful. With a love like that, with a disregard for myself like that, fear is the natural product. I’m never sure how my love will be handled. I’m never sure if I’ll truly be loved back, and that uncertainty does more harm than good. There have been far too many nights when I’ve questioned people. There have been far too many nights when my questions were answered in the way I feared they would be. Will they stay? No. Will they respect me? No. After a while, being right in that sense gets so old. So now, I’m running my fingers over these cracks. They’re shaped in the names of people who I can only hold in memories. There’s something warm under my touch. Maybe it’s the twisted hope that the stories aren’t over. Maybe it’s the hope that even if they are, others will be written in their place. I’m never quite sure these days. The only thing I’m sure of is the fact that I don’t want to be hurt like this again.
