but she was brilliant

This season “Lucifer” really has no red streak (yet). But I still enjoy this show immensely. The whole cast is brilliant and you can just see how much fun they have. Tom Ellis’ accent still owns my ass and I am here to get ruined by Deckerstar completely. Also: I fucking miss Maze.

In conclusion: GO AND WATCH LUCIFER.

Thank you for listening.

37: Talk about someone you thought you were in love with.

Otabek covered his face in shame when he read that question. He remembered it far too well. She was a pretty little thing he had met in Canada. “JJ had recently broken up with me, finding love in this beautiful Chinese girl. It had hurt my heart greatly. Not wanting to be around that, I took the very first opportunity to move to another training camp. Funny how I moved to Canada to escape a Canadian. Well, there I met this beautiful girl that loved the sciences. We hit it off almost immediately. She was brilliant in every way and had a passion for reading and writing her own novels. She could have been a top writer, but she decided to dedicate herself to the sciences. She wanted to advance our world and knew that fictional stories would not do that. We would spend every free moment together. Sometimes she would come watch me skate, even compete. And I would watch her study and then compete at national science fairs. She was everything I wanted and then some. I remember about 6 months into our relationship I was thinking about getting a job so I could buy her an engagement ring. Yes, I was that stupid of a teenager. I wanted her all to myself.

Well, when I had finally saved up the money and was ready to propose, I heard rumors that she was with another man. Now, I may be a skater, but I am stupid by no means at all. She did not think that way. She believed that those that put sports before their studies were idiots that tried to muscle their way through life. I was not like that at all. Skating was a source of income and a source of fun. It was not and still is not, my end goal.

I asked her out to dinner and that night I was going to pop the question. I was 16, almost 17. I couldn’t even get the words out when she said, ‘Look, Otabek. You’re a great guy, you like books as much as I do, but I don’t want to be with a jock. I’m sorry, but this is goodbye,’ I didn’t even get a word in when she stood up and walked out. 

That stung. Soon I returned to Kazakhstan and swore off all relationships. I didn’t want to fall in love again. I didn’t want to go through that pain again.”

honestly my biggest pet peeve in fic AND in canon is everyone forgetting that kara is more than just a musclehead with the emotional range of a puppy and is actually a refugee, with her entire culture and language and religion wiped out, everyone she’s ever met dead, not simply a human with powers but a Kryptonian, always.

Who comes from a family of universe-renowned scientists, and was considered a genius by the standards of the extremely technologically advanced society that aren’t simply american humans in a few thousand years but people who probably have very different brains–along with also being created via the Codex and genetic manipulation (so it’s probably phased out any junk DNA, or vestigial structures–so, Kara probably doesn’t actually have an appendix or wisdom teeth tbh). If Kara had actually lived her life on Krypton, there’s a very high chance she would have went into the Science guild tbh

Really, imagine if you had gone through the equivalent of a rigorous phD program, and then all of a sudden put in a kindergarten science class. In the comics Kara was about to become the youngest person on the Kryptonian science counsel, ever

Yeah, of course Kara’s going to be bored with Earth level science, those science fairs that Alex dragged her along to are, to her, probably rudimentary at best, wildly off the mark at worst (and really–she’s been told to keep hidden. Genius children make news, genius children are noticed. Alex probably had a bit more leeway as the daughter of two world renowned scientists, already noticed by her teachers to be gifted but kara’s already the new adopted kid with the funny accent and mannerisms in a small town. That would be the exact opposite of laying low).

Lena’s probably a better tactician than Kara–a life as a Luthor would be a constant practice in tactics, long term planning. She’s definitely a brilliant scientist, but out of the two of them? Kara’s probably better.

And honestly? Lena realizing just how brilliant Kara really is, a fully fleshed three dimensional character, would be such a better story than just pretending that kara is an idiot with maybe 3 emotions.

Part of what makes Kara such a compelling character is that she’s been through so much, has so much anger and rage and sorrow but still manages to be a light and inspiration for others, intelligent, someone with a gift with words, a genius–someone who thinks of herself–Kara Zor-El, the powerless Kryptonian–as ordinary, someone not yet worthwhile, but she wants to be. She defeated Myriad through her words, through her sincerity and optimism, simply as herself. As Astra said, Kara “has the heart of a hero,” regardless of powers.Her heart is what makes her a hero.

tl;dr: kara is more than just a “puppy” who is incapable of intelligent thought

Pepper was the first person to find out that Obadiah was the one who paid to get Tony killed. She found out that he was a murderer and she sat right under his nose, right in front of him, and gathers evidence against him. And she LOOKS OBADIAH IN THE EYE to tell him that Tony will be alright when Stane tries to say that Tony never really came back from Afghanistan. She looks at this murderer and she tells him that Tony will be fine because she’ll be damned if she ever agrees with anyone who implies that he isn’t. She might acknowledge his problems in private and call him out when they’re alone but she NEVER tells anyone else that he is anything but capable.

Pepper has always respected and loved Tony, even when she faced danger herself.

The Moon Signs and The Mother

The sign your moon is in is said to distinguish the relationship you have with your mother. You can experience both positive and negative traits of the relationship. Not everyone will experience the negative traits, so if you don’t, just look to the positives.

Aries: Your mother taught you to be courageous and to do anything you set your mind to. You saw your mother as strong and brave. You could have competed for your mother’s attention, she could have been too aggressive, pushy, and impulsive to you, making your self-esteem suffer.

Taurus: You find comfort in your mother who made you feel safe, secure, and loved. You learned from her to be steady, patient, and confident in yourself. But your mother could have neglected you in some way that made you feel vulnerable and unsafe. 

Gemini: Your mother praised your intellect and your self-expression. Your mother nurtured you by stimulating your mind, having frequent discussions with you and allowing your mental energy to thrive. But, your mother could be distant emotionally, could rarely be home and always busy, could have raised you up in an unstable, unpredictable environment, or mother could be moody, nervous, and irritable.

Cancer: Your mother has always been nurturing, loving, and supportive of you in every way possible. She offers you guidance and understanding. But, your mother can be overbearing, especially if you move away or start a family of your own, etc. She can also be extremely emotional, moody, and over protective.

Leo: Your mother feels great pride in your beauty, accomplishments, and your dreams. She nurtures your need for attention and supports your talents and self-expression and offers generosity and a loving heart. But, your mother could force you to live out her own dreams, making you do things you don’t want to just for her sake. 

Virgo: Your mother takes great care of you and is very helpful when it comes to any problems you may have, especially when it comes to work and education. She has high expectations of you and encourages you to do your best. But, she could be so much of a perfectionist that if you do not meet her standards, she can become obsessive and overbearing. She may often resort to criticizing you and nagging at you in such a way that it makes you feel like a failure or like you are doing something wrong.

Libra: Your mother is loving and kind, always making sure you have a balanced and peaceful life. She may have taught you to be well-mannered and fair. She pampers you and offers you emotional support. But, she could be so afraid of conflict and judgment from others, that she can be easily walked over by others or avoid confrontations and this can leave you feeling vulnerable if you or her are being hurt or threatened by others. She often overlooks remarks made by others about her and this can influence you to be pushed around just like she is.

Scorpio: From your mother, you gained emotional strength, intensity, and a mysterious persona. But your mother could have neglected or abandoned you in some way which left you feeling unwanted. Her influence on you makes you feel very paranoid of others and even yourself, making you have to be in control of your environment to feel secure. If your mother was in your life or reenters your life, you can experience manipulation from her.

Sagittarius: You have a fun-loving mother who taught you to believe in yourself and to always look on the bright side of life no matter what. You may have experienced traveling and frequent trips to stimulating places that allowed you to feel independent and free. But, your mother could be detached on an emotional level and may be quite distant. She is searching for answers she will never find.

Capricorn: Your mother is serious, conservative, and hard-working. Your mother taught you to become responsible for yourself and taught you the importance of maturity and self-sufficiency. But your mother could have restricted your time to be a child, putting overbearing worries and responsibilities on you at a young age. Your mother may have suffered from events that hindered her and made her depressed and irritable. You never truly had a childhood. 

Aquarius: Your mother taught you the importance of being original, intelligent, and independent. She respected and supported your thinking and your intellect and was a friend to all of your friends and to the community. But, she could not connect with you on an emotional level most of the time and may have been considered as weird or unusual. She could have also been rebellious in a way that affected you negatively.

Pisces: Your mother is sensitive to you and your feelings, seemingly always feeling exactly as you are. She offers you compassion, care, and nurtured your brilliant imagination and creativity. But she may depend on you in an unhealthy way, have a mental illness, or may have addictive habits she must overcome.

I went through so much stress and periods of strife. I would have panic attacks… I literally always had a stomach ache. And I was a control freak and I couldn’t anticipate what was going to happen in a given situation, so I’d be like, ’Maybe I’m going to get sick’… It’s kind of remarkable. I just grew out of it, but that’s not to say I don’t get worried.
