but seriously though i expected this to happen

Keith + Lotor Theories

After seeing the new Season 3 sneak peaks, all my opinions and theories of Lotor have changed.

I believe that Lotor’s main focus isn’t going to be Lance but Keith instead.

He’s already met Keith in the “Belly of the Weblum” and I think he knows that he’s a galra. I think Lotor will try and manipulate Keith into switching sides. Maybe promise him that Keith he can see his parents?

Keith won’t be so easy to manipulate because of his strong sense of duty and strong mind, so that will cause hatred between the two since Keith is stubborn and Lotor is manipulative.

In the 80′s voltron, they were enemies/rivals because of Allura. I believe that will carry on to VLD. 

Since their hatred towards each other was caused because of their affection for Allura, it could be that Lotor could develop feelings for Lance and Keith, being the pining dork that he is, will of course not let that happen.

But if I’m being honest, as much as I want it to, I don’t think that Lancelot is going to happen. But I do believe that some Keith/Lotor things might happen.

Lance considers himself Keith’s rival but what would happen if Keith found his own rival in Lotor. Keith doesn’t consider himself Lance’s rival anyway but he and Lotor may develop a rivalry/hate towards each other.

What would this mean for Lance? Jealousy. And I think that’s how the whole “Lance developing in some places/growing/sexuality” thing is going to happen.

We’re not going to get jealous!Keith. We’re going to get jealous!Lance. We’re going to get Lance being jealous of Lotor’s interaction’s with Keith. Not romantic interactions but the way that Lotor and Keith will but heads. The same way he and Keith but heads. 

Since Keith may be taking over as the leader, his full priority will be Lotor and how would this make Lance feel. All of Keith’s attention focused only on Lotor. 

In Seasons 1 and 2, we got pining/jealous Keith and now in Season 3, we’re going to get pining/jealous Lance. We’re going to get Lance slowly realising that his feelings for Keith may go deeper than he had previously anticipated but trying to deny them. 

The way that Lotor was presented in the sneak peaks makes me believe that he will not be the silly, over-the-top villain he was in the 80′s voltron. I believe he will be serious. A force to be reckoned with. 

I highly think the chances of Lancelot happening are dim but Lotor causing Lance to get jealous will be high

Everyone has been predicting that Lotor will go for Lance and make Keith jealous but I think we’re going to get the opposite and have jealous Lance instead.

Lance takes his rivalry with Keith very seriously. Even though they’re shown to get along, he still reverts back to his old ways. Keith having his own rival in Lotor would annoy Lance because he is supposed to be Keith’s rival. He’s supposed to be neck-in-neck with Keith. No one else. 

Lance’s feelings will grow from annoyance to jealously and then realisation. Lotor will be the catalyst for Lance realising just how he feels about Keith.

Again, Lotor going for Lance and then having a jealous Keith might happen but because we’re are all expecting it, I think it’s going to be flipped and were going to have Keith being focused with Lotor because of his duty as leader and have jealous!Lance who finally realises and accepts his feelings.

Justlex With Bi!Alex and Overprotective Justin

Request: could you do a lil headcanon where justin gets all protective of alex when someone (idk bryce maybe?? or just a random person??) starts being rude to alex (idk how,, maybe because he’s bi??) and justin is ready to gO idk i just really like this idea♥️♥️

A/N: Okay so Justin isn’t 100% ready to go in this but I wanted to get some emotion in here. Sorry if it isn’t what you were after, feel free to request again. Also there’s two parts, the original and six months later.

Warnings: Homophobia, Swearing

Justlex With Bi!Alex and Overprotective Justin…

  • It was just another Thursday lunch when Alex shook hands in greeting with Zach while he sat down with the rest of the jocks at their table in the sun
  • They’d all been friends for a while, since Alex somehow made friends with Zach. He got along with all the boys pretty well considering they were both into totally different things- music and sport
  • The whole school had recently found out he was bi, and he was so happy that none of his friends seemed to mind. None of them had said anything yet and he was super grateful

  • That was until the one and only Bryce Walker sat down with them. He wasn’t exactly homophobic, but… well yeah, he was. He was one of those guys who just felt the need to bring up his sexuality all the time, and implied that he must’ve been in love with all his male friends
  • “I bet you’ve got your sights set on someone- it’s me, isn’t it?”
  • “You? Please” Alex scoffed playfully
  • Bryce wasted no time in continuing to run his mouth, getting ruder as he went, as usual. Alex just cast his eyes down, a slight smile on his face as though he was actually okay with playing along with Bryce’s jokes. It was easier to go with it than fight against it

  • Justin Foley clearly hadn’t got that memo though, because he snapped and told Bryce to shut up. Alex and the group were all shocked as they looked to Justin, who had begun to bicker back and forth with Bryce
  • “Seriously Bryce, if you don’t shut the fuck up I will come over there and shut you up”
  • Alex certainly hadn’t expected any of the boys to stand up for him, especially Justin. He couldn’t believe how worked up Justin seemed to be as he and Bryce basically yelled at each other. Alex sat across from him, and Justin sent him a smile once the situation calmed down
  • “Look, Alex, buddy, you know I didn’t mean anything”. Bryce apologised.

  • “Sure” Alex brushed off, not in the mood to argue otherwise


Half a year later:

  • Alex and Justin were sat on the couch in Bryce’s pool house, the blondes legs over Justin’s lap as the brunette combed through Alex’s hair and talked
  • Justin smiled at him affectionately while they spoke
  • They weren’t exactly together, but they weren’t open to seeing other people either. They were just testing where this could possibly go

  • “God, Standall. Who’d have thought you had it in you,” Bryce spoke from the other side of the table, “You got Justin fucking Foley to turn”
  • “Bryce leave it the fuck alone” Justin growled his hand instantly dropping from Alex’s hair,
  • “Nah, man I’m just sayin’. We all knew something like that was gonna happen with Bi Alex around, but I didn’t expect for it to be you”
  • “No, Bryce seriously, shut the fuck up” Justin growled

  • “Woah,” Bryce raised his hands, “no harm done man”
  • “All harm done, fuck off”
  • Alex looked away nervously as Bryce stared at them, stunned. Eventually though he just turned around and walked away, and Alex couldn’t be more thankful
  • Justin’s hand didn’t return to his hair, but the other one hadn’t moved from his thigh either. Alex looked at him curiously, and didn’t look away until Justin’s eyes met his. He wondered why it was that Justin always seemed to jump in full ready to throw fists whenever someone mentioned his sexuality

  • Justin gave him heart eyes, and eventually his hand was on his cheek again “you know I didn’t think I had a chance with you… you were so different and I totally thought you’d hate me for being a jock”
  • Agonisingly slowly, Justin leant in and finally, finally kissed Alex. They’d only been almost boyfriends for like a month. If Alex knew all it would take was a rude comment from Bryce he would’ve agreed to games night weeks ago. He kissed Justin back and pulled away to grin at him, snuggling tighter into him

Let's sum this up: Gullruten

STARTING WITH THE BAD NEWS:
1) Tarjei didn’t win the best male actor award.

I don’t get this. Tarjei deserved to win more than ANYONE. I personally think that for an actor who’s only 17, he just should’ve gotten that award. Like its not fair. If there’s this “he’s still too young” bullshit going on, I’m SUING

2) skam didn’t win the best drama

Again, what is this? Skam managed to become incredibly popular not in just Norway, but in the WORLD. The various scenes mostly from s3, are the moments that make me cry everytime I watch them, I’m sure you guys can relate. No joke. That’s something that deserves this award.

3) Henjei won people’s choice awards!

Ahh now the good news! #Henjei won and they presented a beautiful speech where they basically thanked the fans, Julie and the skam ‘boys and girls’. I’ve never been more proud of them. BABES.

4) o Helga natt won!

It really is the best scene, isn’t it? ♡
O Helga natt seriously deserves every award in the world. It’s one of the most emotional things I’ve ever seen. It’s heartbreaking and happy at the same time. IM crying again jahsgsgg

5) THE INTERVIEWS(takk Twitter for the translations)
For the the fellow Henjei shippers, or people who love them both as friends, here’s some very important information from the interviews. Ur welcm alt er Henjei’s interviews

1. Both of them confirmed that the other person is a good kisser.
2. Apparently kissing each other/kissing a male is just like kissing a girl¿?
3. They show up in the s4 to do some background kissing.
4. Tarjei isnt on the social media because It’s best for him(but definitely not best for us jskshsg).

…..

6) THE KISS|the afterparty

If you hate the idea of Henjei and you’re one of those ppl who like to protect henl*a to the death, then you should probably stop reading and leave this post ♡ thank you.

HENJEI FREAKING KISSED.
So both of them appeared in the 'kiss cam’. They didn’t even seem surprised nor uncomfortable. Neither of them hesitated and just like that, Tarjei’s tongue appeared in Henrik’s mouth. Then i nearly cried and died inside at least 84 times. I’m sure you’ve all seen the video yourself, they just made out for like a few seconds and then acted like it was the most natural thing ever. Bc natural connection.
IM HAPPY.
David literally acted like Magnus(and me) during the kiss. Like that was legit Magnus’ fangirling.

They had a little party afterwards. Or should I say afterAwards. I’m sorry jsksjskgag MOVING ON.
Tarjei screamed. Henrik screamed. I screamed. Ice cream.

Siv liked some Henjei pics on insta. Same mother, same.

7) poor me
Just writing this(from hell) so you can relate and feel a little more at peace knowing that you’re not the only one who almost jumped out of the window bc of two grown up men kissed each other.
I was literally and unmistakably LAYING on the floor until my family tried to explain that the floor was dirty.
We had guests And I started explaining the situation to them with this huge enthusiasm and I was screaming in the process. My mum’s close friend thought I was just messing with them and joking around.

A seven year old friend was trying his best to calm me down and honestly didn’t understand why I was yelling at the laptop.

I nearly dropped the said laptop.

And that was Gullruten!
I’m more than happy right now. The stuff that happened was so.. real, not staged nor fake, and the cameras clearly managed to show us that. Tarjei seemed more confident than ever. Henjei was happy with the cast. What else does the skamily need?
More awards to win so we can get more henjei content HAHAHA
But seriously though, it might actually be one of the best fredags ever. I love life.
I’d seriously expect ANYTHING but the kiss. Can you believe Henjei. I lUV THEM. I LUV THEM. I LUV THEM. I LUV THEM. ILUV-

Release

Summary: Mickey gets released from prison, but no one knows. The first place he goes is the Gallagher house. 

Word Count: 1125

Notes: Thanks so much for 100 followers. I haven’t had this account for long so it means a lot! :)


It’s been a long time since Ian has seen Mickey– three years, seventeen days and two hours to be exact. He misses him everyday, but he knows he needed to move on, so he did. Eight to fifteen years is a long time, and with Ian’s bipolar disorder, he needs stability.

So here he is with his family, Kev, V, Svetlana, Yevgeny, and his boyfriend Trevor, in the most stable environment that he could provide for himself. And then, Mickey walks in the back door.

“Holy shit,” Ian’s face goes pale and his heart starts thumping.

“Miss me?” He says to Ian.

Suddenly, Liam and Yevgeny run to Mickey. He picks them both up and hugs them tightly. “I missed you,” Liam says.

“Missed you too, buddy,” he kisses Liam on the head and then he kisses his son on the head as well. “I missed both of you.”

Liam eventually unlatches himself from Mickey’s embrace, but Yevgeny stays holding on tightly. “Are you home forever, daddy?”

“Yeah, Yev. I’m home forever.” He kisses his head again and hands him over to Svetlana, who kisses him on the cheek and welcomes him home.

Everyone’s jaws are dropped open in shock, other than Trevor, who is looking at everyone in confusion. He tries to ask what’s going on and who this is, but no one answers, they just stare at the dark haired man who walked in the back door.

Debbie is the next to get up and hug Mickey. She introduces him to her daughter. “Hey, Frannie. This is your Uncle Mickey,” she says and he waves at the baby. Mickey smiles at the term “Uncle Mickey.”

Carl, Lip, and Kev then get up to greet him and tell him it’s nice to have him back. They were followed by Fiona and V, who hugged him tightly and told him how much they missed him.

Finally, Ian gets up and walks to Mickey, ignoring everyone around him. He grabs his face, as if he’s making sure he’s not hallucinating. “I want to punch you.”

“Fuckin’ do it then,” Mickey responds.

Ian shakes his head and kisses Mickey instead. The boys wrapped their arms around each other and Mickey smiled into Ian’s mouth.  When they separated Ian leaned his forehead on the other man.

“You’re an asshole,” Ian said.

Mickey nods. “I know. So are you.”

“I know.” With that, Mickey punched Ian in the arm. Ian grabbed for the aching spot that was punched. “What the fuck?”

“You never fucking visited me,” he tried to mask the sadness in his voice because he knew that there were people surrounding them.

“It was hard seeing you,” Ian frowned. He regretted never going to see Mickey, but it was just too hard for him to handle– especially after their last encounter, which was Ian breaking up with him.

Mickey nods and looks down. “Fuck, I missed you.” After hearing that Ian wrapped his arms around the excon. They hugged so tightly that neither of them could breathe.

“I missed you too,” he said sadly.

The silence of the family and the loving hug between the two guys gets cut off by a distressed Trevor. “Can someone explain what the fuck is going on? And who the fuck are you?”

“Who’s this? Boyfriend?” Mickey snickers. Ian just shrugs as a response. “Can I hit him?”

“No!” Everyone yells simultaneously.

Mickey rolls his eyes. “Fine.” He chucks the finger. “Fuck you,” he says to Trevor instead of hitting him. It was the better alternative, but Trevor still scowls.

“Umm, Trev,” Lip starts. “Remember when Ian wouldn’t get out of bed for all those weeks?”

“What the fuck? No one fucking told me he went mani–” Mickey gets cut off.

“Shut the fuck up, let me explain this,” Lip gives Mickey a glare, so he nods.

“Of course I remember,” Trevor says seriously.

Lip sighs. “Remember how he kept calling out for someone named Mickey?” Trevor nods and worry began to fill his eyes. “Well, this is him.” The memory of Ian saying that his ex-boyfriend was in prison quickly came back to Trevor’s mind.

“Why the fuck are you back?” Trevor steps closer and tries to be intimidating. Unfortunately, Mickey was the most threatening man on the Southside so it didn’t work out too well.

“Got released. Good behavior, got my GED.” He started. “Also, Mandy pulled some favors, don’t ask me how because I have no clue. I don’t even know where the fuck she is.”

Ian stepped forward again in surprise. “You got your GED?”

Mickey nodded bashfully.

“Mick! That’s amazing!” Ian shrieks proudly.

To disrupt the happiness, Trevor moves between Ian and Mickey. “Go back to where you came from, asshole,” he says meanly. “Ian and I are together now. You’re the one who fucked up.”

“Stop,” Ian said and moved Trevor out of the way. “I’m sorry, Trev–”

“Why the fuck are you sticking up for him? Didn’t he try to kill your sister?”

“Half,” Mickey corrects him.

“Because we take care of each other,” he looked at Mickey in a way that brought them both back to their last time together. “In sickness and in health, good times and bad times,” he smiled as he summarized the words that Mickey said to him three years ago.

Fiona suddenly jerked up. “What the fuck, are you getting married?” She shrieked.

“We’ve always been ghetto married,” Ian snorts.

Mickey shrugs. “I’m down for it if you are.”

Ian nods with a smirk. “We’re getting married,” he informs everyone as if they haven’t been there listening.

V starts to smile. “I love weddings!”

“What the hell?” Trevor shouts. “We’ve been together for two years, Ian! You’re throwing it away for some dirty scum like this?”

“I love him. I’ve been in love with him for about ten years.”

“Well I love you,” Trevor says desperately.

“I’m sorry, Trevor. I didn’t want you to get so connected. I’ve never loved anyone besides him.”

Mickey smirks at Ian’s words, though he kind of feels bad for the other guy. “Sorry, man,” he says genuinely.

“Don’t you need time to work shit out before you get fucking hitched? I mean seriously you haven’t seen each other in how many years?” Trevor’s fury is noticeable, but Ian shakes his head. “You know what, fine. Fuck you,” he says and slams the door.

Kev looks at everyone’s faces before speaking. “Well I wasn’t expecting this to happen today.”

“Neither were any of us,” Ian snorts. “I’m glad it did though,” he grins.

“So are we,” Debbie says. Everyone nods in agreement.

Ian kisses Mickey’s head. “This is it, we’re finally going to be together,” he says happily.

“This is it,” Mickey repeats.

@solangelo-scomiche-caleo asked if I could do a continuation of this, which you should probably read first, so here you go. Hope you like it :)


Blinking, Will sat up in the couch he’d been lying on. It took him several seconds of looking around to realize he was in Nico’s apartment, a blanket draped over him. Nico was nowhere to be seen, though.

What was he doing here?

He didn’t exactly remember how he’d gotten here, only that he had. The pain in his head didn’t really help either. He wasn’t used to drinking. He barely ever did. But apparently last night he had though it necessary. He faintly remembered thinking he had to see Nico for some reason and then nothing.

God, what had he done? He just hoped he didn’t do anything stupid, like confessing his feelings or trying to kiss him or something. Nico was his best friend and everyone knew the best way to ruin a friendship was admitting you wanted more. At least, that’s what everyone always told him, what he saw in movies, not that he had any experience.

The first time they met, through Leo Valdez, Will had though Nico was absolutely breathtaking. With his messy hair the color of the night sky and these deep brown eyes and high cheekbones. Then he’d opened his mouth to make a snarky remark to something Leo said and Will was gone. They’d talked all night, became friends, best friends and Will had slowly been falling deeper and deeper in love with him. He was almost sure Nico didn’t feel the same, though

Maybe he was freaking out over nothing, maybe he’d just arrived here and instantly fallen asleep. God, he hoped that was what happened.

He got up and walked to the kitchen to see if Nico was there. He was. Standing in front of the counter, making a cup of coffee.

Will awkwardly cleared his throat and said: ‘Hi.’

Nico jumped, almost let the cup in his hand fall to the ground. He turned around. ‘God, Will! You scared me, I didn’t hear you come in.’

‘That’s weird. You always hear everything.’

Nico shrugged, but Will noticed he didn’t meet his eyes. He was more fidgety than he normally was. So he did do something yesterday. They hadn’t been awkward around each other since the very beginning of their friendship.

He didn’t know how to bring it up, though, so he tried acting natural. They ate breakfast, bickered like they normally did, even though it felt a bit forced. There was an awkwardness underlying everything and Will didn’t know how to deal with that. Not to mention his head was killing him.

He assumed Nico felt the same, because he suddenly just said it. ‘What happened yesterday? You never drink.’

Will chewed on his lip and raked a hand through his hair. ‘I uh… needed the courage to do something.’

‘Do what?’

‘Was I – Did I say something yesterday?’

Nico flushed red. Not a good sign. ‘You kind of told me you wanted to kiss me. But don’t worry’, he quickly added when Will’s eyes widened. ‘nothing happened. I just figured it was the alcohol or something. I didn’t uh – yeah.’

‘It wasn’t.’

‘Wasn’t what?’

‘Wasn’t the alcohol.’, he quickly said, before he lost the nerve. ‘I do want to kiss you. Even sober.’

Nico just looked at him for a while. ‘Why don’t you then?’, he finally said with a smirk.

‘Seriously?’, Will sputtered, not getting the response he had expected.

Nico, the jerk, snickered at his expression, though he couldn’t hide the blush on his cheeks. ‘Yeah, Solace, seriously.’

So that’s what Will did. He stepped closer to Nico, put a hand on his cheek and softly pressed his lips against his.

He knew it was probably terrible, morning breath and all. He probably still smelled of alcohol, but if Nico didn’t mind then he didn’t either.

The kiss made stars grow like flowers in his heart.

Samurai Jack Expectations vs Reality

Me after seeing the samurai Jack season 5 episode one: Oh man, the new is awesome so far and the daughters of Aku look great! They are probably going to be villains at first but then Jack will teach them how everything they was taught was a lie and help him fight Aku! 

Me after episode 3 of season 5: 

Originally posted by yourreactiongifs

Well, that just happened.  

(In all seriousness though I can’t believe what just happened! I mean I’m not even, just shocked on how the show totally did the exact opposite of what it was going to do. Seriously, the new season is awesome!) 

Fairy Tail Chapter 535 Reaction

 Hey guys, I’m back from my long hiatus (I had to focus on Uni stuff and didn’t have much free time), but since I’m now done (and have a lot more free time) expect a lot more salty posts from me.

So the chapter cover looks cool, I like the focus on the Raijinshuu and Laxus, it reminds me of simpler times, with less plotholes and BS.

  • So Lucy’s infected by some weird, demonic? magic now. (I was kinda hoping for the Curse of Contradiction but oh well)
  • “It’s hot… Something inside my body”, “Natsu’s flame” seriously Mashima…
  • Happy, she can’t re-write the demon in Natsu, because he IS a demon not a human. It would be like trying to re-write the Exeed in you, not going to work is it?
  • How the hell can she re-write ancient complex dark magic runes anyway? If it was Levy that was doing it, it would make a lot more sense but, Lucy? 
  • Thank you Gray, at least someone’s using their brain.
  • Now back to the Natsu vs Zeref fight.
  • Zeref you are literally 3 feet away from victory, 3 feet from re-writing the timeline. Just ignore Natsu and walk through the door!
  • Seriously Zeref, why weren’t you paying attention to where the INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT BOOK is.
  • Yeah Zeref I can’t believe a human can handle those demon runes either…
  • “But even so those who tried were eventually corrupted… and fell into darkness” Does this mean that others have tried to re-write the book before? If so who?
  • But seriously Zeref,  just walk a few steps back and achieve your goal, it’s not that difficult.
  • Incoming Natsu Nakama Speech…
  • Oh Wow Fairy Tail’s greatest power is Friendship… I’m soooo surprised, never saw that coming, nope never.
  • So now back to Jellal.
  • Does he seriously think he can push a giant dragon into the timelapse?
  • Even so, Acnologia can just eat his magic sooo… What’s the point?
  • I bet Jellal will walk away unscathed from being crushed by Acnologia, *Sigh* (It was pretty cathartic to watch though)
  • Zeref, don’t try to fight him, just walk through the FUCKING DOOR!
  • The only person standing in your way is YOU.
  • Natsu Powerup time. What’s he expecting to happen, the last time he destroyed Zeref he just re-materialised, so won’t he just do that again?


Overall this was a decent enough chapter, but my biggest issue is that all Zeref has to do to win, is walk a couple of steps backwards, that’s it, he doesn’t need to fight Natsu AT ALL

My attempt to exorcise some decade-old showrunner related demons (you’ll never guess which show, will you)

(disclaimer: I don’t have sources for any of the stuff I am going to talk about. Heck, I can’t even remember what publications these interviews actually appeared in. We’re talking about stuff that goes back to 2002 or so. You’ll either have to indulge me or believe that I was making this all up).

I was initially involved in the original Gilmore Girls fandom, which meant that I followed this show while it was first going on. This was well before the age of social media, so this meant a lot of poking around on Internet forums (hello TWOP!) and scouring media interviews for clues on what was actually going on. It was a lot different then than it is now.

Unfortunately, ASP was just as difficult then as she is today.

I will tell you that from early on ASP expressed an aversion to hooking Luke and Lorelai up because she didn’t think she could get it right. Jess was brought in as an obstacle, and then Digger. The ratings dipped at the end of season 4 (Rory was boring without the love triangle, and nobody liked Digger as much as ASP did) and ASP was forced to stop stalling on the show’s core couple in order to save it.

She later said that she wouldn’t have hooked Luke and Lorelai up if David Sutcliffe hadn’t been available for Christopher to cause “problems” for them.

So let’s skip to season six, when April is brought in as an obstacle, and everything is destroyed in as disastrous and painful a manner as humanly possible while the Palladinos are in the midst of a contract dispute. There’s a popular contention out there that ASP purposely torpedoed the show either to punish the WB for not agreeing to her demands or to set up a situation where only she could fix it. I don’t know if this is worse or better than what I believe actually happened, but I don’t think that’s all there is to it.

Both ASP and Lauren Graham directly gave interviews at the end of season six where they stated that it was time for Christopher to show how good he was at a relationship.

Excuse me, I have to take a moment here.

Originally posted by mrsgilmoredanes

I believe there was also talk bandied around to the effect that if it didn’t work out that Christopher and Lorelai would have to remain friends like they had before and that Luke would just have to accept it if he wanted to have a relationship with her again as if nothing had happened.

Originally posted by butshedidntgoaway

I don’t blame Lauren for this. At the time, I thought she was interfering in the show for stuff she wanted to happen, but she was just really good at PR. A few years after the show ended, she and Alexis were doing interviews about all the babies Luke and Lorelai probably ended up having (how could Lauren know what the eventual game plan was?) so I think she’s just really good at selling whatever she’s given at the moment. I do blame ASP. I think the main reason everything happened in season six the way it did was because she really wanted Christopher and Lorelai to happen. I think she was also slowly losing her mind over the contract negotiations and she figured she might as well bring the show down with her if she was going to be pushed out.

Of course, karma backfired on her and she never got to do the grand Christopher/Lorelai relationship she wanted. Sometimes people do get what they deserve.

Originally posted by moonlightsdream

Even now, I still don’t trust ASP on this issue. In the post-revival interviews she always talks about the L/L nuptials as being something she had to do because the fans demanded it, but she is more than willing to go on and on about how gorgeous David Sutcliffe is. If given a chance, I don’t trust that she wouldn’t ruin everything again just because she could. I think that maybe she still partly sees Christopher as the charming bad boy who can make everything disappear if he waves enough money around, and she doesn’t understand that the majority of her audience just didn’t buy into that at all. This is why I so resent that ASP made Lorelai become the needy, insecure, irrational person she became at the end of season six, the kind of person who would obliterate everything and everyone around her because she wanted to be married so badly.

And Christopher was going to be the white knight who comes in with his bucket full of cash and gives Lorelai the fairy-tale wedding and future that suddenly was more important than anything else.

(I’m fully aware that there are some Christopher fans who still expected this to happen, even though the actor who plays him was not one of them. They occasionally come into the shipper tags and proclaim how terrible they think Luke is).

Seriously, woman. For the gazillionth time, I’m glad you got kicked off your own show.

Originally posted by overlord-moomoo-blog

Am I overreacting here? Um, yes. I’m the one that refused to go near the show after the sixth season (in part because of ASP and Lauren’s PR blitz which made things worse as far as I was concerned) and didn’t even want to see the part where what was so badly broken had been fixed. When I learned (years later) that what ASP broke had actually been fixed by other people, I became quite convinced that this was the only reason it had been fixed. I didn’t want ASP near these characters again because I thought she had planned an entirely different ending for Lorelai and would gladly redo the Christopher/Lorelai thing again because she didn’t get to do it the way she wanted the first time.

I’m a Southern woman. We’re crazy, and we hold grudges. It’s what we do.

Besides, given what actually went down with the other Gilmore Girl during the revival, does anyone here doubt that ASP is petulant and stubborn enough to do that if she really wanted to?

Originally posted by giphygiff

Of course, on this I was wrong. Very, very wrong.

There was a lot to complain about in the revival, and I’ve contributed my fair share to it. I do think the Christopher issue was handled a lot better than I ever thought ASP was capable of. It’s made clear that Lorelai and Christopher are not in contact at all. Lorelai speaks of their relationship entirely in the past tense, and directly states that that she thinks their entire relationship/marriage experiment was a mistake. While even I’m not sure things needed to be that drastic, Lorelai did need to set boundaries in order to avoid the same patterns she’d fallen into over and over. She did need to do something concrete so that Luke could fully trust her again and not fear that she’d run off to Christopher every time something went wrong.

Like Rory once said, it always ends up with Lorelai crying and alone. That relationship needed to end. Christopher appears to respect these boundaries, and knows that the best thing for Lorelai is to leave her alone and stop interfering in her life. He knows that she was in love with someone else all along, and he accepts that, and wants her to be happy.

It meant a lot that ASP explicitly wrote these things into the text, and lays it out that Lorelai is devoted to Luke, and that Christopher is not a viable alternative anymore and has not been for a very, very long time. It meant a lot that she directly states that the relationship she tore her show down for was a charade, and that Lorelai loved Luke all along. It’s definitely a positive development that all three parties accept this, and affirm that the happy ending we got is the one we were meant to have all along.

I’m not sure if it counts as an apology, but I’ll take it.

I still refuse to watch another show from the Palladinos ever again, though.

First time poster here, so please forgive me for formatting and all that jazz. (The quotes are not exact, as this did happen a while ago)

So, I work at a rather upscale grocery store. The prices are a bit higher than other stores in the area, but that’s due to the convenience and the rather great customer service (Seriously, workers are expected to kiss the customers’ asses, no matter what). That being said, we don’t often get the customers you’ll see at larger, more popular stores (people in crazy, indecent outfits, people who smell like they haven’t showered in years, etc.) I happened to come into contact with a rather odd individual, though.

I was working as a cashier when a man with his wife and children came into my line. Their cart had a ton of things, but most notably, a fuck ton of meat. I began ringing them up when I came across some strawberries that didn’t have a tag. We have many different brands so I wasn’t sure what the price was. Usually we ask the baggers to go and price check the item while we finish up scanning the rest of the order. Man, as I will now refer to him as, chimes in before my helper can leave.

Man: “Oh no, I remember the price. Those were a dollar.”

Okay, I immediately am not buying it. I know for a fact none of our strawberry containers are only a dollar. This dude is lying. No big deal, I’ll just send off the bagger to check it anyway. Man mumbles under his breath something about me not believing him, but I just carry on. Bagger comes back with the strawberries and it’s time for him to pay.

Me: “Alright sir, just go ahead and swipe your card right there.”

Man: “Okay, wait why isn’t it working?”

Me: “Oh, it seems that you don’t have sufficient funds. Would you like to remove some items?”

Man: “Sure, I guess.”

He begins taking out the meat since it’s the most expensive. I actually had to take off all of the meat for him to be able to pay for his groceries, so by this point, my manager, “M”, has come to assist me. She’s getting ready to take the meat back to the meat department when Man starts saying the strangest things.

Man: “Can you just let me have those for free? I know y'all throw them away anyway.”

M: “Um, no sir, we cannot give you an products for free.”

Man: “But you’ll just throw ‘em away! I know you will! Here, I’ll take them. I can give them to charity.”

I’m just watching this interaction between my manager and the man trying to get over $100 worth of meat for free, and I just don’t know what to really do at this point.

M: “No, the meat department can definitely take it back. It hasn’t been opened or damaged in any way, and hasn’t been out of the freezers long enough to-”

Man: “Alright, fine, I just wanted to give some starving children some food, but I guess not.”

The man continues to huff under his breath about starving homeless people and us being stingy. My manager shares a look with me that most likely says, “good luck with him,” before walking off to put the meat back. The man just continues to mutter under his breath about the “selfish people not giving to charity.” Like, sure bud, you were definitely going to give that to charity and not just take it home to eat for yourself. I was just glad when the guy finally left.

TL;DR Man comes in buying a fuck ton of meat, and when he doesn’t have enough money, he demands we give it to him for free so he can “give it to charity.”

So the comics are very likely ending (esp with Ian Flynn's tweets today), any thoughts?

I have very mixed thoughts on all of this. I think there’s still a little hope, but it’s sad in a lot of ways

My heart definitely goes out to the creative team who’re getting screwed over by Archie’s poor business practices–even if the comics end up resuming, the current hiatus is surely hard on them

I’ll be sad if the comics end for sure. I love the series. It means a lot to me personally, and I’d hate to see it get cancelled with no closure whatsoever. Especially right before two big milestones for both the main series and Universe

As some people have said, though, if Sega ended their partnership with Archie, maybe they’d move somewhere else, like Boom Studios or IDW? And if that happened, maybe some of the current creative team could move there too, since they’re all freelancers to my knowledge

Even if it was the end forever, though, I guess I’d be thankful for what we got. The comics have had a much, MUCH longer and more successful run than I think anyone ever expected. Seriously, HUNDREDS of monthly comics based on a video game franchise with this tumultuous of a history is extremely impressive

I dunno. We’ll have to wait and see, I guess

This recipe is the cheat method to all ramen cooked at home. And it’s fricken vegan. Vegan. A ramen. Do you know how much money this saves? Do you know how long it takes to cook a tonkotsu ramen broth? 6 hours. Minimum. I feel like I just hacked my way into a secret of the culinary world that’s desperate to remain under lockdown and away from the prying eyes of the public. So what does it take? Konbu, dried shiitake mushrooms and soy milk. And under 30 minutes. It is amazingly good, I could cry. Lotus root has become my new favourite vegetable, so delightfully crunchy even after
being cooked! And considering the general consensus regarding tempeh, I was expecting to despise it.. but that’s before you flavour anything with teriyaki sauce I suppose.What happens when you can’t find burdock root? Substitute it for sweet potato, I’m a thinker. Someone applaud my dedication for almost burning off my eyebrows in order to use the barbecue (and cleaning it!!) just for very small components of this dish. Seriously though, this is the most sinless, yet decadent ramen you’ll ever taste! Every crave but loathe to carry your stomach around like a bowling ball? Look no further!

Jouichirou’s Special Rich Ramen Recipe

Buddhist Stock: 1 10x10cm konbu square, 4 dried shiitake mushrooms, 700ml water

Teriyaki Tempeh: tempeh, 1 tblsp sesame oil, 1 tblsp honey, 1 tblsp soy sauce, 1 tblsp sake, 1 tblsp mirin

Ramen Noodles, ½ tblsp yuzu juice, ½ tsp grated garlic and ginger, 2 tblsp miso, 500ml soy milk, 50g taro, salt, pepper, chili oil

lotus root, burdock root (or sweet potato), carrot, turnip, rock salt

Submerge 1 10x10cm konbu square, 4 dried shiitake mushrooms in 700ml cold water for 30 minutes. Bring to the boil, remove konbu square and continue to boil for 2 minutes. Strain.

Wash lotus roots carefully, including on the inside. Slice lotus root thinly, carrots into rectangles, cut turnips by slicing in half then into slices so that they resemble wedges. Peel thick shards of burdock root. Lotus and burdock roots brown quickly so let sit in a bowl of water with a bit of vinegar to prevent this.When ready to cook, pat dry with paper towels.

Deep fry lotus roots and burdock peel until golden. 

Barbecue carrots and turnips. BARBECUING IS AMAZING. I’M BARBECUING ANYTHING I CAN GET MY HANDS ON. NEXT UP, PIZZA.

 Place on paper towels to absorb excess oil. Season with rock salt.

Cut tempeh into 5cm squares, coat with potato starch. Heat up 1 tblsp sesame oil and cook tempeh to achieve a golden sear. 

Add 1 tblsp sake, mirin, honey and soy sauce. Coat well with sauce. Set aside until ready to serve. Tempeh is magical and delicious and I can’t believe I said that without duress. 

To make broth, sear garlic and ginger in 1 tblsp sesame oil. Add miso. Dissolve in 500ml soy milk and 300ml buddhist stock. Read note below regarding the miso 

Grate in 50g of taro (I may have gone overboard with this.. don’t do that, it won’t turn out as pretty). Simmer for 5 mins. Season with salt. Edit: I’ve been looking to see how to improve its appearance and one method is to place the miso into a sieve and lower it into the stock to dissolve gradually. That way, the solids don’t linger on top of the surface and you have a clearer broth.

Boil noodles for 1-2 minutes, strain and mix with ½ tblsp yuzu juice. Add broth and carefully arrange the garnishes of tempeh teriyaki, barbequed carrots and turnips, deepfried lotus roots and burdock peel and chili oil.

Enjoy! And thank whatever deity is up there for such a blessing of a guiltless, delicious ramen.

Ah, well, then I'll wait for more info on DA 4. At this point, any new information I can get on its latest installment makes me jump like a gun going off and I tend to jump to conclusions. XD

It does concern me that it’s taken so long for them to confirm DA4 - but I know they’ve been working on it, so I’m fine with waiting. 

In the wake of MEA, which took quite a long time to develop and yet still stumbled upon release, I suspect some restructuring is going on at Bioware - not just the sort you’d expect to see after a big game release. Even though my experience with Andromeda leaves me feeling like a lot of the backlash is seriously overblown, it did have its weaknesses and the product was not at the level of quality that players have come to expect from Bioware. Somewhere, something broke down in how the teams were managed and it’s something the company would want to address in order to prevent it from happening again. I think this is probably a contributing factor in the new IP’s pushback (and presumably, why DA4 is likely being delayed a bit as well). 

Considering what happened with Andromeda, I think there’s even more pressure on Bioware to make sure they don’t put out a weak Dragon Age title, for fear of weakening both of their main original IP franchises. I would be pretty shocked if they just shoved DA4 out the door as fast as possible to try and make up for their less than stellar previous performance. 

Do I wish they’d make it, announce it, and release it faster? Yes. But I’m more than willing to wait as long as the final product is good.

Nalu Soccer Au: Red Card Ch 4

Welllll how long has it been since I’ve updated? I’m so sorry to all who have been waiting for this chapter, but here it is! Chapter 4 of Red Card.  @illustraice I have no idea if you still like this au anymore TnT but I’ll still tag you Ice! 

Too Soon

 Magnolia was usually a noisy place in itself. The streets were usually full of cars and the sidewalks, of people rushing by excitedly, chattering about, aimlessly, of their normal lives. However, in a cafe nearby, a silver head was seated by herself, a cup of tea resting atop the glass table she rested her elbows on. Her face was contorted in anger as she impatiently tapped her foot as she waited for someone to arrive. Her fingernails tapped at the glass of the black table as her eyes surveyed the crowd in the shop.

 She sighed as she took a sip of her green tea and lightly drank it. She couldn´t enjoy it as she felt herself remembering why she was angry in the first place. She didn’t even understand how she could be so angry despite the situation having no effect on her, personally. Soon enough she heard the bell to the small shop´s door ring as she looked to find someone she recognized make their way inside. That someone shuffled their way towards her. Off the bat, she noticed the blonde hair under the white beanie he wore and the shades concealing the male´s face. She glared heavily as he sat and sighed.

 “Yuki”, he began to say cautiously as he called her name, but she felt her eye twitch as she finally let herself snap.

 “Are you an idiot, Sting?!” Yukino yelled at the top of her lungs standing and catching the eye of many of the people who wanted to just enjoy their beverage and had to deal with the undesired noise. Sting looked at them apologetically as he also seemed to make sure they hadn´t figured out his identity. Along with him he had a bag, surely with his clothes for practice, and in his hands held a worn out and slightly dirty soccer ball.

 “Yukino, you´re being a bit too loud”, Sting muttered holding the ball to his face, but what can he expect after this girl, happened to be his sister´s BESTFRIEND. She must have seen the interview and he knew just by a glance that what he´d just said to her was probably the worst thing to say to her right now.

 “Sting…You big idiot!!! I don´t care if they listen to the truth. How could you?! You seriously fucked up that interview! Do you even realize how your sister looked?! She was devastated! The fear in her eyes broke my heart. She even looked at me as though it was the end. I hope you realize what a stupid choice you made at mentioning her!” The silver head´s face was even bright red in anger as the blonde male seemed to shrink back into his seat.

 “Yuki, I…I had to with Natsu-” the blonde tried to make up an excuse for himself, but the silver head was having none of that as she made a motion with her hands for him to zip his lips.

 “I wasn´t done! Clearly you don´t have any excuse for your actions. I seriously can´t believe you. How hard was it to wait for the game to express your dislike! I am-” Yukino continued her rant as Sting sighed. By now everyone seemed to be listening intently to their ´lover´s quarrel´as he thought of it that way. He needed her to calm down.

 She clearly wasn´t going to give him a chance to speak and nothing he could say would calm her rage. And so as she was still going off about his behavior, he suddenly stood up and grasped her face making her blink in confusion, before he crashed his lips onto hers. Her eyes widened in shock as her eyes closed for a few seconds before she realized where they were. Sting was the first to pull back a cocky smirk on his face as the silver head´s eyes looked away a heavy blush at her cheeks.

 “Feel better, babe?” he teased as she pouted heavily.

 “Sting, we´re in public, idiot”, she muttered embarrassed her anger having gone away and replaced with simple discontent as she sat herself back down, still blushing, as she looked around at the people who giggled at their display.

 “Look, Yuki, I understand you´re upset and I didn´t think Lucy would be this upset either. I do feel bad about it”, Sting confessed as he straightened back in his chair. He did feel bad especially since Lucy had made it clear she wanted nothing to do with the media. “I just had to declare war against Natsu somehow. I´m not letting him put his hand on my sister.”

 If anything, Yukino rolled her eyes at how ridiculous he sounded. “Sting, I hope you realize how dumb you sounded just now. Natsu, doesn´t know Lucy´s your sister and second, Natsu had nothing to do with Lucy”, she deadpanned as he seemed to get quiet suddenly. The silver head´s eyes suddenly widened. “Sting, d-don´t tell me…Did you actually just realize it?” The male only coughed awkwardly and scratched the back of his neck sheepishly.

 Yukino was tempted to seriously smack him, but only closed her eyes in frustration. “Anyways, seriously, Sting, you should consider apologizing to Lucy, but first of all talk to her about your issues first of all. I just want you to get along”, she muttered. Sting could only remain silent, feeling himself just as troubled if not even more. He always expected that Lucy would accept him once she saw him, but he´d never seen or could ever imagine her act so cold before. He suddenly began to remember their childhood as he looked sadly at the soccer ball in his hands. A gift he had always treasured.

 “Big brother!” a young blonde´s voice rang. Sting turned to see his little sister look at him with excited and big brown eyes. She was only a third year middle schooler while he was already in his third year of high school. Said girl ran to hug Sting tightly as the blonde male reciprocated the hug. He looked curiously at a bag that she held in her hands as she giggled at his curiosity. Currently, his father had    punished him and had forbidden that he have dinner that night.

 Even when his mother had protested, he had yelled at her. Sting in a sudden burst of rage went to throw himself at their father and was beaten. He was banned from being outside and was to be home schooled in the mean time before he was allowed to go back to his school. Lucy had seen the whole thing, her eyes had been watery and as a result Sting accepted his punishment without further protest, to avoid seeing his sister upset.

 “I see you have something there. Might that be for me?” he questioned with a grin as Lucy giggled and nodded vigorously and pushed the bag into his hands. The blonde male chuckled as he went to open it; beginning to exaggeratedly pull out the decorative tissues inside to make the younger laugh. His eyes widened suddenly as he paused.  He looked to her a shine in his blue eyes as he pulled out a beautiful soccer ball from inside the glossy green bag. It was white with loops colored in black and outlined in a glossy gold color. Upon further examination he noticed that on the bottom of the ball, near the small pore you´d pump in air, was his name in the same gold coloring.

 “Lucy, why did…” He began to say as the girl only smiled brightly at him.

 “Happy birthday, Sting!” she had chirped as the blonde teen felt his eyes suddenly begin to water. The whole fight with his dad had made him forget that, in fact, today was his birthday. His father hadn´t even bothered to give him a hug or say those same words. Sting could only guess he had forgotten as well. However, he felt as the tears fell down his face because he was extremely happy that Lucy had gifted him something she knew meant so much for him.

 Big bro, don´t cry! I wanted to make you happy! I know you love soccer and I thought this would be good.” Lucy gasped as her mood seemed to deflate. A sudden hand on her head had made her look at Sting as he had a gentle smile at his lips. He sniffled slightly as he wiped his tears away.

 “I love it. I cried because I´m really happy. Thank you, Lucy. Once I´m done with being grounded, how about the two of us test out the ball together?” he questioned as the blonde girl’s eyes seemed to glow in excitement.

 “Yeah!”

 “I don´t think she´ll ever forgive me, Yuki. I have to go now”, Sting suddenly stood up grabbing his bag and tightly holding onto the ball leaving the silver head to look at his departing form.

 “Sting”, she muttered not finding any words that could possibly comfort him.

 xXXx

 “Wah! we´re finally here!” Lucy chirped both excited and nervous as she clutched to the arm if the petite blue haired woman she had dragged along. Levy was quite nervous herself but for entirely different reasons.

 "L-Lucy, why are you excited about coming to the stadium when you well know that the team is having a private practice! And why are we in disguise?!“ Levy hissed as the guards looked at them suspiciously from the gates. Levy pulled at the bonnet she had put on her head and fixed the shades on her face and looked around nervously.

 Lucy smiled sheepishly before giving a slight sigh. Levy deserved to know the truth just like Yukino, but for now she wouldn’t overwhelm her with too much. "Okay, umm, here’s the deal. Natsu Dragneel, Fairy Tail’s forward, is actually a friend of mine and today I was invited to his practice”, she confessed as Levy’s mouth opened in shock. She seemed almost speechless if it weren’t for the huge grin spread on her face.

 "Don’t tell me you’re the girl he talked about in the interview and that’s why we’re wearing disguises?!“ Levy squealed. The blonde simply nodded glad that her shades covered her blush. The blunette giggled before she reduced to light snorting.

 "Well if it makes you feel better I’m also a soccer fan”, the smaller woman grinned. This time it was the blonde’s mouth that opened agape in disbelief. Levy had to be pulling her leg, right? She always seemed disinterested. But no, someone disinterested would never accompany her willingly to go buy a jersey or stay to watch a game or even willingly go to the stadium. Had she had disinterest, the moment she learned the truth she would have left.

 "You sneaky…Ugh I have a very magical word I’d like to call you right now, but I’m too excited for that", the blonde laughed as her best friend gave her a smug grin.

 "Oi, how long will you still have me waiting here?“ a male’s playful voice called out. Both woman turned to the gates finding Natsu giving them an amused expression. He probably found their disguises ridiculous since they were far warmer that what he had worn on Lucy and his first meeting. Lucy tried not to blush as he pulled Levy along to meet him.

 "Hope you don’t mind if I brought her along. This is Levy Mcgarden, one of my best friends”, the blonde motioned as the pink haired male grinned.

 "As long as she’s a Fairy Tail fanatic and not a spy for another team I’m fine", he joked teasingly as Levy giggled and pressed at a hand at her heart.

 "Well, I would never", she laughed as she stretched her hand to greet him. Although the atmosphere seemed to be going pretty cheerfully, Lucy felt a stinging in her chest at Natsu’s previous words. She didn’t know why exactly she felt so guilty about hearing him say that, but she guessed it must be because of Sting. She was hiding something so important.

 "Lucy!“ Levy yelled startling her out of her thoughts. The blonde squeaked slightly as she looked at her best friend confused. "We tried getting your attention for like 5 minutes now. It’s hot and I want to take this off. You okay?” the blunette questioned, worry obvious in her tone. Lucy only nodded giving them both a smile.

 "Yeah, I was just thinking about the chance that I get to see you guys practice is becoming a reality", she half lied as the two people before her smiled. Natsu finally guided them inside after a few more seconds. As always the halls were difficult to get by and it seemed eternal to even get to the main field. It could be assumed that before it always seemed small since it would usually be crowded with fans trying to get their way to their seats.

 The echo that permeated the space was beginning to make Lucy even more nervous that she’d soon be in the presence of her favorite team once again. As they finally walked out the large entrance where the teams usually appeared from she smiled widely at the seeing the whole team ardently into their practice. “Uwahhh!” Levy squealed taking the words from Lucy before the blonde could even muster them. Both girls looked at each other before they giggled. Levy seemed more of embarrassed, but she was clearly just excited.

 “Welcome to Fairy Tail”, Natsu chuckled as if they had just entered a magical place. The blonde rolled her eyes as the pink haired player winked at her. As they got near the field all three of them were startled by an angry voice that began to yell orders.

 “Alright! Max get to the net right now! Alright, Natsu and Gray need to practice shooting in. WHERE IS NATSU?!” the female’s voice boomed angrily. The blonde glanced at Natsu and was shocked by the heavy gulp he gave as he fidgeted nervously. “NATSUUUU!” the voice boomed once more and even the blue haired woman had to hide behind Lucy feeling as though maybe being there wasn’t the best idea.

 The pink haired male took no time to pretend he had been doing something the whole time. He jogged away from them as quickly as he could to try and hide behind Gray who began aggressively doing push-ups. It was a sight to see as all of them cowering at this woman’s voice. Lucy turned to the feared woman and was shocked to find a stunning scarlet haired beauty walking towards them with a clipboard in hand. Lucy knew her as Fairy Tail’s monster coach, Erza Scarlet. It was usually the general manager who would be in charge, but given that Macorav Dreyar recognized the talent of this woman he made sure to have her coach the team. Her trainings were known to work them into exhaustion, but it was her training that got them in top form in every game.

 Her brown eyes suddenly fell to Natsu who seemed to pale at her scrutinizing gaze. “Natsu”, her voice warned lowly as he licked his lips and stood. “How come you weren’t here a few moments ago?” she almost whispered. He seemed to chuckle sheepishly as he rubbed the back of his neck. His eyes fell towards Lucy as they lighted up in relief.

 “I was looking for a manager! Yeah…a manager! And uh, my friend Lucy here happens to be really knowledgeable with the way our team works and she’d be great she could even help you overlook our training sessions!” Natsu would squeak out as Erza’s eyes suddenly fell on them. The blonde licked her lips as the red haired woman strode her way to them. Her eyes seemed cold before they lighted up.

 “I’m so glad Natsu was finally able to get a manager. You already seemed like a very capable person! I am Erza Scarlet,” Erza grinned as she stretched her hand out to them. The blonde gave a slight scared look to Natsu before smiling nervously and greeting the red head. Her hand had grasped the blonde’s firmly and it was almost painful as the scarlet haired coach shook her hand vigorously.

 “Ha ha. It’s a pleasure to meet you”, Lucy chuckled nervously retreating her aching hand after it was released. She had to restrain from laughing when she saw Levy’s face also contorted in pain as she gave Erza a strained smile. The scarlet haired woman smiled brightly once more before her face suddenly turned dark and serious as she directed her venomous smile at the boys.

 “Alright, let me remind you that we made quite a few mistakes in the game against Twilight ogre”, she spoke firmly as they all seemed to visibly pale.

 “I don’t think we messed up that bad, Erza…We did win”, Gray mumbled, but it had maybe been a little too loud as she turned to give him an irritated look. He certainly had a death wish as she walked towards him. The two girls had to hold back their shock at seeing Gray gulp heavily in fear.

 “What was that Gray?” she hummed with an angry tone.

 Gray looked around for any help, but everyone just looked at him sympathetically. Erza sighed heavily a she stepped back to look at her clipboard. “Anyways, for your mistakes you will run a set of five laps for every set of practices we do today”, she announced. She even dared say it in such a casual manner as the boys seemed ready to drop. Gajeel looked about ready to protest, but Natsu punched him in the arm.

 The boys seemed desperate to get out of the situation. Natsu desperately looked for a solution when he spotted Jellal. Everyone simultaneously looked to the blue haired male who blinked in confusion. Once he saw their knowing glances he heavily gulped as Gray ran to pushed him forward towards the scarlet haired woman who was currently lively talking to Lucy.

 “What do you want me to do?” Jellal sighed as he pressed his fingers at his temple.

 “Dude, she’s your girlfriend tell her to…I don’t know… cut the intensity of the punishment?” Natsu shrugged but nonetheless, was extremely desperate.

 “What are you a wuss, Jellal?” a new voice piped in as a blonde male, one of their mid-fielders, with haired in a spiked fashion approached them.

 “Laxus”, Jellal muttered in acknowledgement. He sighed heavily looking at Laxus’s wide smirk and letting his pride get the best of him as he approached their coach, or in other words, his girlfriend.  Erza glanced up at him as he licked his lips, his teammates watching carefully.

 “Hey, Erza, you know if I must ask”, he said before taking a slight pause.

 “What is it?” she mumbled her cheeks slightly tinted red and the team almost thought they had achieved victory against her.

 “Well, it’s been a while since we’ve gone out and I was wondering if you’d like dinner tonight, babe?” he questioned and he himself felt shy almost forgetting his purpose. In reality, he had avoided asking her to lower the harsh practice conditions they were about to endure because after all, he just couldn’t go against Erza.

 “O-Of course… but uh…ALRIGHT! Everyone begin the laps now!” Erza called out nervously and the team member’s mood deflated as they released groans. Lucy looked at their distress and decided to intervene as she wouldn’t want them to die before their next game.

 “Uh, E-Erza…If I may?” Lucy suddenly called out as everyone looked at her suddenly in shock. The red haired woman turned suddenly, her face serious. The blonde wanted to squeak at the intense gaze, but coughed awkwardly as she assorted her thoughts and words that she was going to say.

 “Well, I’ve observed the team for some time and I was thinking that rather than making them run laps wouldn’t it be more efficient to group the members based on the skills they lack to strengthen them through different exercises? For example, in the previous game I noticed the mid fielders were lacking a bit of speed, so maybe some conditioning would suit them. The forwards seemed to lack in ball coordination so maybe some passing exercises would work and so on”, Lucy explained, suddenly getting into her analysis.

 Everyone stared at her in awe as the silence was becoming overwhelming. They all awaited Erza’s answer as the red haired coach smiled widely. “That’s brilliant Lucy! You will be a great addition to our team. Welcome to Fairy Tail!” Erza grinned as she gave the blonde a thumbs up. Lucy’s eyes lightened as she realized that she was now officially a member of the Fairy Tail team staff. Everyone cheered not only to congratulate her, but also for saving them from an imminent death.

 She unconsciously found her gaze meeting Natsu who gave her a light smile in approval. Her heart seemed to skip a beat as she felt a slight blush tint her cheeks. For the rest of the afternoon, Lucy helped guide them with the exercises and the score practices. She couldn’t help but laugh heartily as Natsu and Gray would break into fights and roll around the dirt of the field. Erza would be on them in seconds as they seemed to transform into the best of friends seconds later. They would look at Lucy with sheepish smiles as she shook her head and nodded.

 The day seemed to finally come to an end as they ended the practice with a friendly soccer game. As expected Natsu’s team won, not by much, but did so regardless. Levy had seemed to enjoy her time as well even when she found herself clashing with Gajeel, playfully of course, but he seemed to like her as he’d ‘baptized’ her with the name of ‘shrimp’. As the players left to change Natsu pulled at Lucy’s wrist as she turned to him curiously.

 “We didn’t get to talk much today, huh?” he chuckled questioningly as she smiled softly and agreed.

 “Yeah, and we almost always talk through text”, the blonde inquired as he laughed softly. She could of sworn he was getting embarrassed, but she decided not to comment on it. After an awkward pause, he coughed slightly as if trying to get his throat to work out what her wanted to say.

 “This might be too sudden, but uh… I was wondering…if you’d maybe…you know…Like to have dinner with me tomorrow night?” he questioned, suddenly looking away from her. The blonde’s eyes widened and this time it was her time to feel bashful as she giggled.

 “I’d love to…uhhh yeah sure.”

 It was totally ridiculous how they were acting. Already grown yet still acting like high schoolers. However, Natsu seemed really content with her response as he shot his head back to look at her almost in disbelief. “Really? I mean…uhh…cool. Yeah”, he tried to play it cool, but only earned a smack at his arm.

 “Stop trying to act cool, idiot”, she giggled as she aimed a beautiful smile his way. He seemed to pause to just stare at her. She had such a beautiful smile, of course, now wasn’t the time to tell her. He’d just make sure she knew that in his own way. “Great then, tomorrow then?” he winked playfully. She rolled her eyes in response before nodding.

 “Yeah, well then. I’ll see you tomorrow. Don’t think I’ll go easy on you because I’m your manager”, she winked in response as well. He snorted before a smug grin appeared on his face.

 “Tch, I wouldn’t expect anything else.”

 Welp that’s it! I know it’s a lame way for me to come back. it wasn’t as good as the other chapters, but I still hope you enjoyed it nonetheless. If you haven’t read the other chapters you can click on the links below!

Author’s note: It was really hard to finish this and I wasn’t the most inspired, so I’m sorry for those who anticipated… >< Still I’m more content with this, than with an unfinished story, and I hope you will like this more than I do. :D Also witing smut is so hard but writing fluff is also hard, what am I even good at.

It’s been a month since you acquired the privilege to call Kim Taehyung yours and you weren’t the least bit embarrassed to say that it was the best month of your life. Whereas he only seemed like your dream boy before, now you could witness that he indeed was, as cheesy as that sounds.

physicsandfandoms asked me to do a bit about my ace couple Bail and Breha headcanons for the Ace Card Day over at acesinspace. I thought about writing some meta, but since this is entirely headcanon anyway, I thought fic would be more fun.

The Princess and the Nerfherder | Bail/Breha, 2513 words, no warnings.

When Bail Antilles was eleven years old, his parents took him into Aldera for the great flower festival. He’d never been to the city before, though he’d heard stories about it, and his cousin Lenal, who was four years older than Bail and had visited the city three whole times, was always bragging about everything he’d seen there.

Bail had expected the city to be beautiful, and it was: all gleaming, soaring white structures and streets strewn with pink and red and white and yellow petals. And there were so many people! But there was one person he would remember more than everything else he saw that day.

Princess Breha was only a girl his age, but she looked like one of the spirits come out to walk among mortals. She was dressed like a flower herself, bright and sun-kissed, and she looked right at him and smiled as her hovercar paraded past.

He didn’t actually talk to her that day. And it would be years before he saw her again. But the memory of the flower goddess stayed in his mind.

Someone has been shovelling his driveway.

Not that this is a bad thing—Castiel is more than grateful that after his shift, he can fall into bed in his honeybee scrubs without having to worry about snow removal (Gabriel keeps telling him to hire someone, but Cas likes being outside, even in the winter, and shovelling is a good way to make time for it), but Castiel has no idea who this mystery do-gooder is.

And, honestly, he’d like to thank them.

He spends the next week attempting to figure out creative ways to unmask his mystery person, going even so far as to set up a camera—but by the time the figure starts it’s dark, and winter clothing is too big and bulky to glean any sort of other information.

Until one day, Cas’s driveway isn’t shovelled at all.

But neither is his neighbour’s from three houses down.

anonymous asked:

I haven't seen loads of photos yet, but am I the only one feeling a bit underwhelmed by this year's MET gala? the only ones who stood out to me were Zendaya, Rihanna, Cara, Blake (I looove her), Emily Ratajkowski (I loved the colours).. I didn't like any of the Kardashians/Jenners, but I especially hated Kendall's dress (BEST DRESSED?! SERIOUSLY?). I have no idea about how much they respected the dress code though!

So… the Met Gala just happened. And Serena Williams was wearing green and all I could think about was you! <3 Even though Tay didn’t show up, what were your favourite looks from the night? Also… least favourite?

Hi Sarah! I know you won’t see this right away, but the MET Gala was last night. I loved Kendall Jenner’s look because it fit the theme. It was extreme and not something you would expect, but that was the theme; avant garde. I feel like people don’t go for the theme for fear of being judged or whatnot, but that’s the point of the MET Gala. Sorry for the lengthy ask, but I hated seeing people wear basic outfits. What are your thoughts?

Met gala best-dressed/worst-dressed opinions? Also thoughts on the theme?

I know Tay didn’t attend but I’d still love to hear your thoughts on this year’s Met gala!

What was your favourite look from last night’s met gala? I LOVED Lily Aldridge in Ralph Lauren and Balenciaga, she went with the theme and looked gorgeous.

Met gala opinions?? Shame Taylor wasn’t there but we knew that already, Selena and Karlie looked goood, not so sure about some of the others though!

Have you seen the Met Gala pics yet? Why do people not take the one night they are encouraged to be completely kooky?! Why are so many people just wearing nice things it makes me sad :’( Go Rihanna tho

Phew! Hey boos. I’m so behind on Met Gala coverage - it’s been a crazed last few days. I finally had the opportunity tonight to sit down and look through everything. 

Here are my high-level thoughts (under the cut!):
