but we're not and we have to feel proud of that

advice for the signs
  • aries: you're full of ideas and they're always amazing! you are so much smarter than you give yourself credit for, even though you try to appear like you're a bit of a daredevil, you don't always like to come too far out of your cozy little comfort zone. but I promise, if you come out a bit more you can experience so many exciting things, and your abilities will make you shine like a star in the night sky.
  • taurus: not only are you are a badass, you're also super cool. if there are any haters its only because they want to be like you - really though. you just have an aura about you that pulls people in and once they get to know you, they don't ever want to get away. people want to overindulge in you, and if that wears you out then take a break and don't feel bad about it, your friends know you'll come back at the end of the day.
  • gemini: you're not a two-faced backstabbing bitch, you are a beautiful person who struggles with having to listen to an angel and a devil on your shoulders all day, which I can only imagine is super tough but you've done an incredible job to even come all this way and you should be so proud of yourself, I know I am. and lets take a moment to appreciate how you can walk into a room and suddenly be everyone's best friend with your natural charm and easy-going nature. you could take a bullet in the chest and your smile won't even falter. you're so determined to get what you want and you're so passionate and just everything you do is admirable. keep going, you rock this world.
  • cancer: if we're being real here, you don't actually cry *that* much. this is what it is - you have so many emotions swirling inside of you and they are like a beautiful storm of bright lights. and you should continue to let that out and share that beauty with everyone! but even with all that, you can be pretty hardcore and you are so strong, inside that whirlpool is a fire than burns bright, you should show people your intense passions as well as your caring side.
  • leo: you are amazing, and everyone around you knows it. if you're being too hard on yourself, lighten up a little because so far you've done everything right. everything happens for a reason, and if you feel guilty or sad about something just remember that your experiences have shaped who you are today - a beautiful, wonderful, magical creature with sparkling eyes, a loving soul and fabulous hair.
  • virgo: you work so hard to be on top of the game and I know how stressful that can be, but trust me when I'm saying that if you're doing the best you can, please don't push yourself any further. I'm sure you know what it feels like to get 3 hours sleep only to just scrape everything in on time, but you're doing just fine and please remember to reach out to your friends and loved ones and talk about how youre feeling. honestly, letting out any negativity makes you feel so, so much better, and you deserve the best.
  • libra: it's not that you're indecisive, you just like to weigh out all the pros and cons of a situation before you go into something - which is such a good idea, and I admire you for that. I bet you wish you had a crystal ball and could see the future to know how your decisions will turn out, huh? but the reality is that you should stop worrying about about the future and live in the moment. if you're not focusing on the present, you won't get to where you want to be in the future, and we definitely don't want to see you somewhere where your talents aren't being showcased.
  • scorpio: your personality is just so magnetic and you're so hypnotic, so many people absolutely adore you and would do anything for you - but sometimes they might not be 100% certain that the feelings are mutual. now, I know you love your friends and family so, so much with a fiercely strong love, but would it kill you to tell people that you love them and how you're feeling sometimes? everyone is here to help you and guide you on your journey to reaching the stars, but you can't build your rocket ship without the help of others.
  • sagittarius: you are incredible and so smart, it actually makes people stop in their tracks when you open your mouth and spout some beautiful, philosophical words of wisdom. or even just opening your mouth to say anything. everything about you is great but I'm not sure you appreciate yourself as much as you should. all the friends you have who love you should be an indication of how great you are. if you don't learn to love yourself, you might not be able to see through and out of your own little bubble and actually notice how much people care about you. because they care so, so much. don't you ever doubt that.
  • capricorn: your motto is work hard and don't take shortcuts, which is amazing and everyone admires you for that. it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to be you, and even if nobody mentions it, everyone is impressed. you're gonna go far, kid. but know that even if you're stuck in a rut right now you just need to jump a little higher and climb out. if you're stressed, talk to someone you trust and just open up and tell them what youre feeling. help them help you, and everything will be okay.
  • aquarius: we're not emotionless, we have a lot of feelings and we just choose not to express them because we're scared of people being overwhelmed by us, and we like to trust someone 100% before we open up. and there is nothing wrong with that. you're so good at listening to people's problems/how they feel and your advice is 10/10, but if you don't take time to talk to people about how you're feeling, you bottle everything up and one day it'll get so full that the lid will burst - and I know you're afraid of letting out all your feelings in one go, I definitely am. the only way around that is to let it out, bit by bit, slowly and over the years, to maintain your composure and sanity. and nobody will see you any different or judge you if you open up to them.
  • pisces: you're passionate, your creativity is out of this world, you're so good at helping people and you don't have a selfish bone in your body. you're always so up for helping people, and that is amazing! you're compassionate like no other, and your ideas are off-the-charts crazy cool. and you're not weak! you are perfectly capable of putting up your barriers, you just like to trust people enough to keep them down a lot of the time. and you're definitely not weak either, you've probably lived through some heartbreaking experiences, and you're still able to walk around with your head up and your heart open. now thats real strength.

James: “And it has to be the last message that you got, I trust you” *Harry pretending to be annoyed*: “Ugh.. okay” and then Harry opens his phone, and checks his iMessage and… Harry: “Oh! I haven’t read this one yet so let’s hope it’s not inappropriate!” *crowd laughs* James: “Don’t keep us waiting, lad.” Harry: “Okay! Okay… so… the message says…” (2)

Harry: “Good luck tonight, baby! I’m so proud of you. I know that you’re gonna smash it! And I’m sorry I won’t be there.. but you know that I’d sit in the front row if I could! But we don’t want that now, do we? I mean, can you imagine how loud I’d be screaming and cheering? It’d be embarrassing! *crowd laughs* (3)

And then, Harry reads the next few lines in his head… and he can feel his eyes welling up with tears.

You’ll always be my baby. I love you, babycakes. Now go and show them who’s boss!” (4)

The crowd is quiet… and he’s afraid to look at their faces, so he just locks his phone and tries not to burst into tears… James: “Oh, wow… that was such a sweet message, mind if I ask who was the sender?” Harry, with his eyes still wet but with a little smile on his lips: “Let’s just call them a Sweet Creature.” (5)

  • Girl: The new app, stupid.
  • Boy: What does it do?
  • Girl: It's new! Check it out. *fires up app*
  • New App: *in a fresh and cool voice* Welcome to the new app.
  • Boy: I still don't understand what it does.
  • Girl: You can press this button here and it checks for the latest version of the new app. Watch. *boop*
  • New App: Boop received. There are ZERO new updates.
  • Girl: Isn't it cool?
  • Boy: I'm really not into it.
  • Girl: C'mon. You have to be. Everyone's using it.
  • Boy: I'm not really into the same things everyone else is.
  • Girl: You're always such a hispter, but that's your choice.
  • Boy: Yeah, it's my choice and I'm proud of it.
  • *later, elsewhere*
  • Group of People: Wow, the new app rules, right? I love it. I like booping it to see if there's any new updates. We should all boop it now. No, I think we should wait. You're stupid. Yeah, let's all boop it forget the other guy. *boopboopboopboopboopboop*
  • New App: Bbbooooppppp rreeecciiieeeevvvveeedddd. Ooonneeeeee nnnnnneewwww uuuuppppdddaaaattttteeeeeee aaaaavvvvvvvaaaillllllabbbbbl-
  • Boy: *watching from afar* What a bunch of sheep. How can they get excited over a stupid app that does nothing. It's mob mentality if I've ever seen it. One person downloads a useless app, so everyone else has to. Thank god that I'm appless and entirely free from banal social dogma.
  • New App: New update has finished downloading. Activating new feature, outcast locater. One outcast located directly to the south of your group. He's watching from the alleyway.
  • Boy: Huh?
  • Group of People: *rush over the alleyway* Whoa, there really was a guy watching us from the alleyway! What a weirdo! Does he really not have the app? No one doesn't have the app, it's the newest app. Hey, do you not have the app?
  • Boy: I have to go.
  • Group of People: Don't go! Why don't you have the app? Actually, fuck off if you don't have the new app, freak!
  • Boy: *runs away* Why did they all gang up on me like? *stomach growls* Now I'm hungry after running like that. I best go to that sandwich shop over yonder and eat a... hmmm sandwich.
  • Cashier: Hello, sweetie. What kind of sandwich can I get you today?
  • Boy: Just a bread sandwich. Like, a sandwich with three slices of bread and meats, vegetables, cheeses, or condiments.
  • Cashier: *phone vibrates* Hold on, sweetie. The new app is booping me, there might be a new update.
  • New App: Hey, do you see the kid standing in front of you?
  • Cashier: You mean that very cute boy?
  • New App: Yes, him. He doesn't have the new app.
  • Cashier: What!?
  • New App: It's true.
  • Cashier: You have the new app, don't you?
  • Boy: Well, no.
  • Janitor: *stops mopping the floor* That's kind of weird.
  • Cashier: It's actually very weird.
  • Boy: I don't understand what the big deal is, it's just a dumb app.
  • Cashier: It's not dumb, everyone's using it!
  • Janitor: *locks the doors* It's suspicious that you're not using it, son. Why don't you take a seat and wait here for a moment.
  • Cashier: Yeah, me an my colleague, the janitor, have to talk. Your sandwich will be out in a moment.
  • Boy: *nervously sits*
  • *the janitor and cashier huddle behind the counter and whisper to each other*
  • Boy: *internally* This is ridiculous. Why is this stupid app getting me into so much trouble. I'm not required to download it. It's just an app. So why is everyone getting so aggressive about it.
  • Cops: *knock at the door*
  • Janitor: *lets them in* Welcome officers.
  • Cops: So we hear that someone isn't using the new app, eh?
  • Janitor: Yes officer, he's sitting right over there. He's terrible! TERRIBLE!
  • Cops: Calm down, sir. We'll take care of this. *walks over to the boy, very authoritatively* Hello, son. Now, don't be intimidated just because we're cops and all. We simply want to know why you aren't using the new app.
  • Boy: I don't know, I just don't feel like using it.
  • Cops: But you realize it's the most innovative app to be released in the past decade. It was developed by Darkheart Studios, and you know those Darkhearts always make good stuff.
  • Boy: I just don't get why I have to download it. Like, what's the big deal? All it does is update itself.
  • *cops look at each other puzzled*
  • Cops: *phone vibrates* Oh, looks like the app has something to tell us. Lemme just give it a boop. *boop*
  • New App: Boop received. New has update finished downloading. Activating new feature, extermination of the sacrilegious. Kill the boy, officers. End his miserable life.
  • Cops: Are you telling us to shoot the boy because he hasn't downloaded the app.
  • New App: Not necessarily, but any means of extermination is sufficient.
  • Cops: I don't think we should kill the boy. The new app is great an all, but not worth killing over. In fact, it's getting kind of old. I think we should take the boy down to the station for safe keeping while we figure out what's going with this here bizarre app. Hey there, little guy... oh.
  • Boy: *gone*
  • Cops: He's gone. Now where did he run off too?
  • Boy: *runs panicked down the street, the cellphone of every single person vibrating and ringing as he passes them*
  • Boy: *runs into his house and locks himself in his bedroom* What did I do to deserve this? I should just download the app and spare myself this hell. No! I refuse, I won't fall in with trends like all the sheeple. I'm special. I'm different.
  • Sister: *knocks at the boy's bedroom door, clutching a knife behind her back* Little brother, open up. I have to talk to you about something. It's important.
  • Boy: I don't feel like talking, leave me alone.
  • Sister: Come on, I'm your sister. You can trust me, open up. *tries to force the door open* Open the fucking door!
  • Boy: You're acting crazy, leave me alone!
  • Sister: Fine. *stomps off*
  • Boy: *hides under his blankets*
  • *a cacophony of cellphone notification sounds come from outside of the bedroom window*
  • Boy: *sheepishly peaks out the window, his blanket still wrapped around him*
  • *a mob of people, some armed with weapons stand in his backyard*
  • Leader of the Mob: Kid, we all know you didn't download the new app. Unfortunately, the app says we gotta kill you unless you do. I personally think that's unreasonable, but it is the new app after all, and who am I to question it?
  • Boy: Fuck your stupid app! It doesn't even do anything!
  • Leader of the Mob: What a bad attitude. It's the new sensation.
  • Boy: You're sheep!! You're all stupid sheep!! I'm never downloading the stupid fucking app!!
  • Leader of the Mob: Then we have to burn down your house, kid.
  • Boy: My dad is super rich and influential. If you burn down my house, he'll have you guys taken care of.
  • Dad: *from the mob* I actually support them, son. It's disconcerting to me as a father that you don't have the new app when everyone else does. I could support your through anything, but not this.
  • Boy: Wha- dad!? Argh! Just burn the house! I don't care! I'm not afraid to die!! At the end of the day, I'll be a martyr and you'll all still be fucking nobodies!!
  • Leader of the Mob: Whatever ya say, kid. *tosses torch at the house*
  • *the rest of the mob follows and the house quickly goes up in flames*
  • Boy: I guess this is it. This is how I die. All over a dumb app that doesn't do anything but boop.
  • *flames reach the bedroom window*
  • Boy: Oh god, oh god, oh god! I've changed my mind! I don't want to die!! *frantically pulls out his phone as the flames grow and downloads the new app*
  • New App: *boop* Thank you for downloading the new app, boy. Now, you've been forgiven. You may live. Please be sure to boop me to check for updates.
  • Boy: I feel so fucking stupid, but at least I'll live. I just have to get out of here.
  • Boy: *rushes into the hallway, but the flames have engulfed the entire house*
  • *the ceiling collapses, trapping the boy in the hallway and ceiling any exits*
  • Boy: No! Someone help me! *coughs* I'm sorry! Please help! I downloaded the app!
  • Boy: *curls up in fetal position* I don't want to die. Fire fighters will come and save me or something like that, I'm sure of it! I'm so scared! I don't want to die! I don't want to die! It can't end like this!
  • *The End*

anonymous asked:

i saw your wonderful meta and i thought, another thing that really stuck with me is the difference between the sheith vs kallura hug in s2. with kallura, you see them hug up close, the viewers are invited into the scene because it's not an intimate one. but with sheith, you see both of them hug, you don't get to hear anything (if they were even saying anything), and the viewers are placed very far away, as if we're not meant to invade into that intimate moment that's reserved just for the 2.

hi!  ha i actually also like kallura and think their hug was cute too, but ya theyre both presented in really different ways. i think the main thing is how comfortable keith looks with shiro, so this is a level of intimacy he’s used to. he tells that one arusion he doesnt hug strangers, but i guess he must hug shiro time to time, since he just goes in for the handshake but isnt at all surprised when shiro pulls him in. 

also, interesting note about it feeling like this intrusion on a private moment: allura’s watching them 

so ya, in terms of how theyre in their own little world and someone else is looking in, i think its definitely framed that way, since its something we see from allura’s point of view. we also get the hug right on the heels of this scene 

so The Hug is also kinda this moment where you have someone else staring and going Why though?? why are they so close??? because shiro keeps trusting all these galra and she just?? cant understand it?? when she turns away from the bom she looks Tired and Annoyed. but after keith catches her staring during the hug, she looks more…hurt? guilty? something? like she’s maybe thinking she shouldn’t be so quick to judge, because keith and shiro both look so perfectly content and at ease in that moment, and its kinda hard to think Evil Galra when you see them being so vulnerable with somebody. (granted i think she had every right to be wary and im proud she was able to build that bridge back up by herself, but i digress). anyway, i think there is that extra level of it feeling like this personal moment  because its this scene that kinda “humanizes” him for allura a little–his affection for shiro humanizes him. and it’s one of the early steps in learning to confront her black and white worldview. ironically, the sheith hug reveals just as much about allura as it does shiro and keith. 

sidenote: i think its interesting that in both these scenes, shiro is turned away from her the whole time. which seems kinda indicative of how distant from shiro she feels because its like hes “siding” with the galra over her. keith is the only one who looks back. and when he does, allura immediately breaks eye contact. 

as for the kallura hug, it seems pretty one sided to me. that is, allura initiates it, and he doesnt respond as readily. she kinda grabs him and you can tell he’s shocked that she’s ready to forgive him so easily. He doesnt pull away or anything though, and tries to reassure her and everything. when he promises to come back you can tell he really cares that she was concerned for him. but, that being said, he definitely doesnt look as comfortable. hes more startled and just freezes. he doesnt hug her back right away. its not something to be expected, like with shiro. 

obviously, this also has a lot to due with the drastic change in her behavior, which leaves him pretty confused. but even when hunk hugs him that one time at the beginning, he looks shocked. hes a touch averse person usually, so its nice to see that he at least had shiro to open up to. and now, little by little, hes slowly letting his guard down around others too.

also, something i kinda wondered when i first watched season 2: since she was the one watching keith and shiro hug before, did it occur to her that oh!! maybe this is a thing! maybe keith likes hugs. should i be giving him a hug?? because she saw shiro do it to reassure him so she tried to comfort him the way shiro would? caus if so thats really cute 

anyway im thankful for both the sheith and kallura hugs! like honestly keith can probably use all the hugs he can get at this point ha

Prompt: "Oliver, where do you see us 10 years from now?"

“Where do you see us in ten years?”

It wasn’t that long ago that a question like that would have sent his wife running. Maybe not physically, but emotionally? Oh, she would have blanched, her eyes widening, a hundred different responses running through her head as she struggled to find the right one that wouldn’t entirely show her hand. He hadn’t been much better, although he’d leaned more towards wearing rose-colored glasses than anything. It’d taken months of hell to realize neither of them had been fully ready for all that a life together entailed.

Not anymore.

Felicity didn’t even flinch where she stood over the large touch screen down in the bunker. Instead she hummed under her breath at the question, her fingers not faltering where she was organizing that week’s case load. The team was stretched a little thin since Rene’a injury, so there was more to do than usual. He knew she was weighing the ups and downs of where things could land on top of his workload as the Mayor.

All his various mayoral meetings were also on the screen.

His eyebrows went up when he saw she had him checking out a quick lead on the recent jail break over the lunch hour on Thursday. Past the fact that she wanted him to do some quick Green Arrow business in the middle of the day…

“You really think I can get all the way down to the Glades and back for my 2 p.m.?”

Felicity shot him a smile over her shoulder. “Yep.”

You don’t have a choice.

Oliver chuckled as he sidled up behind her, gripping her shoulders lightly. He dropped a kiss to the top of her right one.

She blindly patted his hip in return, sliding her hand down his still-leathered thigh. Her eyes never left the screen. “Is this because John was talking about his first anniversary with Lyla?”

“It got me thinking,” he confirmed.

Felicity shrugged, rearranging a few more things. She left the Glades stop on Thursday, he noticed with a wry smirk - she knew his assistant Benjamin was going to flip - before she pulled his attention back to her.

“Well… I think I see us in that monstrosity of a brownstone I can’t talk you out of,” she said. He laughed, kissing the side of her neck this time. She gave him a content sigh and leaned back into him. “Ten years?” She shrugged. “I think I see me pretending not to cry as you and William carry all his stuff out to a crappy SUV he bought with money he made under the table from you when he was helping out at City Hall. And when I lose that battle, I’ll pretend I’m crying because I’m angry that he’s driving that thing across the country - and at you, because you’re letting him - but we all know I’m really crying because I’m not ready for him to leave. Even though I’m so insanely proud at the school he got into that you had to pry me off him when he first told us.”

Oliver stopped breathing, barely blinking at the vivid image she was describing.

“And then,” she added, “when you guys try to call me on it, I’ll tell you it’s just pregnancy hormones.”

His heart stopped.

Felicity turned to him and she bit her lips together to keep herself from laughing at the look on his face. It did nothing to diminish her smile, though.

Pregnant.

They hadn’t really let themselves talk too much about the future. There was always something that came up, that derailed them, that put their plans on hold, whether it was because of his Mayor duties or their nighttime activities. But he’d hoped, and he’d shared those dreams with her, the eventual future that’d taken him years to finally admit to wanting with a yearning that took his breath away.

Felicity wrapped her arms around his neck. His hands found their natural perch on her hips and he pulled her closer, breathing her in. He could already feel the way her body would change as she carried the life they created.

He wanted it, so bad he could taste it.

“Oliver,” she said, her smile softening. “Where do you see us ten years from now?”

A thousand responses rocketed through his head but there was only one response that resonated with all of them.

“Happy,” he promised.

The grin she gave him was blinding and he sealed the promise with a kiss.

  • Jon: okay. You're right.
  • Sansa: *rants about Ramsay being manipulative* he's been doing it all his life
  • Jon: hun, i've defended the Wall from Giants and barbaric cannibals with what? 100 people? I think i can handle Ramsay Bolton just fine

  • Sansa: i'd like to see you try.

  • Jon: if i die, dont bring me back
  • Red woman: im not your servant
  • Jon: you're in my camp. Im your Commander

  • Jon: *probably forgets his plan and that he's the Commander, so he stupidly marches front and center to the Boltons*
  • Ser Davos: *waited until Jon Snow is halfway through the battlefield* Go! go!! Follow your stupid commander!!

  • LF: doesnt matter. He left you in charge. The North likes you
  • Sansa: those lords probably doesnt even know what 'loyalty' is. If they found out about the letter I wrote 6 seasons ago when my character hasnt developed yet, by the time Jon comes back, he'll have no army left

Garrett and Marian - Legacy Banters
  • Marian: Well... not quite how I imagined this family reunion going. I was envisioning more hugs and maybe some wine over dinner. Not attempted assassinations
  • Carver: Really? You think this is so abnormal for our family?
  • Marian: Well you got me there
  • ---
  • Bethany: What could our father have to do with this mess? The Carta have had more than enough time to try and find us
  • Garrett: I imagine that having two Champions of Kirkwall with the last name Hawke may have tipped them off
  • Bethany: But it's been three years since you and sis defeated the Arishok. Why wait that long?
  • Marian: Well I don't know about you, but if I was going to go after the people who killed an Arishok then I'd probably want to make a little time for planning, wouldn't you?
  • Carver: Do these morons strike you as the sensible type?
  • Marian: Two points in one day Carver? Don't tell me the Templars are actually drilling some wit into that skull of yours
  • Carver: *laughs* At least /my/ wit makes a point, dear sister
  • Bethany: Ooh, that had to hurt
  • Garrett: Do you need some healing for that one, Marian?
  • Marian: Oh shove off, all of you
  • ---
  • Garrett: And we're back in the Deep Roads
  • Marian: Oh it's not that bad. I mean... Look at all the... Ugh, no, you're right this is terrible. Let's all promise never to go to the Deep Roads after this. Three times is enough
  • Garrett: Three times? When was the second?
  • Marian: Um... well...
  • Carver and Bethany: *sing song voices* Somebody's in trouble
  • ---
  • Bethany: Varric wrote to me the other day
  • Garrett: Telling another of his stories, I bet. Was it the one about the high dragon, because that didn't really-
  • Bethany: No. He was giving me an update. On you, actually. I was... worried, so I wrote to him and asked
  • Garrett: I'm fine Beth. Really
  • Bethany: No you're not. Not yet. But I know you, and if anyone can get past it, you can
  • Garrett: Thank you
  • ---
  • Carver: You might want to be watch yourself, Garrett
  • Garrett: How come?
  • Carver: Ever since you sided with Orsino the other day, there's been... Rumours. Meredith isn't happy with you, and it's only because she allows it that you're still free
  • Garrett: So is she going to have me dragged to the Circle, or is she getting the Brand ready now?
  • Fenris: Don't say that
  • Carver: I would never let it get that far. But I thought I'd warn you, just in case you were thinking about making her mad
  • Garrett: I appreciate you telling me Carver. Don't worry. I'll be careful
  • ---
  • *after completing Malcolm's Will*
  • Marian: So... the stonework down here is... lovely, isn't it?
  • Carver: Not now, Mary
  • Marian: I was only... Alright
  • ---
  • Marian: Are you okay, Gary?
  • Garrett: I'm fine... Just...
  • Marian: He loved you. And Bethany. He'd be so proud of you
  • Garrett: You sound so sure of that
  • Marian: Of course I am. Because it's true. And don't let that nasty shit in your head tell you otherwise - it's a liar, remember
  • Garrett: *chuckles* Alright
  • Bethany: Be careful sister, people might think you've got a heart after all
  • Marian: *dramatically* Oh no! *clutches chest* I think... I think I'm getting feelings! Quick, someone beat them out of me!
  • Carver: *laughs* You be careful what you wish for sister
  • Isabela: I'd rather ride them out of you
  • Garrett: Ah, and there's the dirty line. I was starting to worry something was wrong Bela
  • Isabela: And you're as sweet as ever, Garrett

  • Varric: Twenty silvers, that's my final offer. Take it or leave it Elf
  • Marian: What are you betting on, and why am I getting left out of it?
  • Varric: You want in? We're betting on what it'll take to get Junior and Waffles to hug
  • Garrett: *groans* You're not calling me 'Waffles' again, are you?
  • Varric: I have to. Every time I say 'Hawke' all four of you turn around. I'm being considerate
  • Carver: I bet there's /someone/ here who'd like to see him covered in syrup
  • Garrett: Carver!
  • Fenris: *embarrassed noises*
  • Isabela: Ooh, new friend-fiction idea!
  • Garrett: Don't you even dare!
  • Isabela: Too late, already dared. Can we make camp? I need to make notes
  • ---
  • Varric: Hey, Rivaini, I'm expecting royalties if that friend-fiction of yours gets published
  • Carver: When you didn't even come up with it?
  • Varric: You wouldn't have brought up syrup if I didn't call him Waffles
  • Garrett: Maker save me...
  • Bethany: And me...
  • Marian: Usually I like dirty things... But this is too far, even for me
  • Isabela: Are you saying you wouldn't like it if /I/ were covered in syrup?
  • Marian: Oh I'm sorry. I didn't realise you were my very hairy twin brother, Bela
  • Isabela: Well when you put it that way...
  • ---
  • Isabela: I always thought we were the loud ones, you know
  • Fenris: What?
  • Marian: I know right. Maybe they're just less shy about it now
  • Garrett: Do I want to know?
  • Isabela: You already know. Or did you deafen yourself?
  • Marian: To think, they don't need us shouting encouragement through the wall anymore. I'm so proud
  • Isabela: Our boys are growing up so fast. Maybe next they'll master foreplay
  • Carver: Oh Maker, I do not want to hear this
  • Bethany: Neither do I
  • Garrett: *loudly* And I would be very happy if we could stop talking about this. Right now
  • Isabela: Yeah, see. That kind of loud
  • Fenris: *deadpan* If you're so fascinated by Garrett being loud, then you must not be doing a very good job at making Marian scream, Isabela
  • Marian: Oooooooo
  • Isabela: Oh, you snarky little shit
  • Bethany: *loudly* If we could stop discussing my older brother's and sister's sex lives, I would appreciate it
  • Carver: *loudly* Oh look, more darkspawn. Let's kill them so we can stop talking about this
  • ---
  • Marian: So our choices are the nice, Tainted madman, or the mage who wants to let a darkspawn magister out of his hole in the ground? Why can we never make nice decisions, like what kind of wine to have with dinner?
  • Fenris: I agree. It is the only decision worth making
  • Marian: When you're not throwing it at the walls, I assume?
  • Fenris: That was six years ago
  • Marian: And you never offered me a glass
  • Fenris: You are recycling jokes now? Has the great Marian Hawke's wit finally lost it's edge?
  • Marian: Ooh, you are just asking for it now
  • ---
  • Varric: You okay Garrett? You've been a bit quiet since-
  • Garrett: I'm fine Varric. There's more important things to be worried about right now
  • Varric: It's not easy to realise that someone you looked up to wasn't quite what you imagined. You ever need to talk, you know where my suite is
  • ---
  • Isabela: So... is no one going to bring up the fact that Varric called Garrett by his name earlier?
  • Varric: What are you talking about Rivaini? Waffles and I were just having a friendly chat
  • Isabela: Don't bullshit me. You called him Garrett. I heard you
  • Varric: That doesn't sound like me, Rivaini
  • Marian: He called you by your name when Velasco carted you off to Castillon
  • Isabela: What?! No fair, I didn't get to hear!
  • ---
  • Bethany: Are you sure about this, brother?
  • Garrett: It has to be done
  • Bethany: I could do it. I am a Hawke after all, and a mage. You don't need to-
  • Garrett: No, Bethany
  • Bethany: But-!
  • Garrett: Bethy, if I let you use blood magic, I'd never be able to live with myself
  • Bethany: And if you do it, will you be able to live with it?
  • Garrett: I'd rather it be me than you
  • ---
  • Varric: If he pulls a dragon out of his ass, I'm leaving!
  • Marian: Oh great, and now he's almost certain to pull a dragon out of his arse! Way to go Varric
  • ---
  • Bethany: Here, you didn't get a chance to close that wound earlier
  • Garrett: Thank you
  • Fenris: I just hope it was worth it
  • Marian: Well we /did/ just kill a darkspawn magister. I can't wait to hear how Varric tells this one
  • Varric: Well I doubt I'll have to exaggerate a damn thing, considering how weird this shit is
  • Fenris: That isn't what I meant...
  • Garrett: I'd have avoided it if I could, but someone had to. And if it meant sparing my little sister from that...
  • Fenris: I understand. But... Please, just be more careful from now on
  • Garrett: I will, I promise
  • Isabela: You two are so sappy... It's actually rather cute
A little love for the signs (From a Libra sun, Leo moon)
  • Dear Aries: It doesn't matter how dark times are, you are there for me. And I know you will always support me. You can make me happy like no one else can. You can say something that isn't even funny and I have to laugh with you. I could talk all night with you. About anything. You are full of light, full of life. You deserve everything bright.
  • Dear Taurus: Even though I've never really been so close to you to say that, I want you to know that you're worth it. You are beautiful, your smile helps people not to give up. So don't give up on yourself. You're strong and I know you smile through the pain, but it's okay. We all go through that and I wanted to tell you that you're not alone.
  • Dear Gemini: You are funny, you are witty, you always know how to make me laugh. I am inspired by you. You are so sociable, yet you know how to be alone and overthink things. You can do decisions by yourself, you don't hesistate to make the right choice. I admire you for that. Also, your art is beautiful. You are art.
  • Dear Cancer: I know we haven't been best friends. I know we had fights and that you broke my trust too often. But I realized, you are only a human being, just as me. Everyone keeps making mistakes, but no one wants to admit that. I hope for you that you'll be happy in the future. I want you to concentrate more on yourself, not on others because you are you, and no one can be that for you.
  • Dear Leo: Whenever I talk to you, it feels like we understand each other without saying a word. You are passionate and you are optimistic. You are the person I look up to, you brighten everyone's day, yet no one knows if you're dying inside. You are beautiful and you know it. You taught me it's completely fine to love yourself. So do it.
  • Dear Virgo: You're so selfless. You always try to help me, doesn't matter if you understand me or not. I know that sometimes it's hard for you to show that you care about me, but I notice in this little things you do for me that you do care. And that's fine. You're human. It's okay to break down. It's okay to talk to someone. You will get through this all. I'm right here by your side.
  • Dear Libra: I feel like everyone of you is my sister or my brother. You can make me feel special without knowing it. When we're talking about god and the world, it's like I've known you all my life, even if it's just hours. I want you to look at the mirror and say "I'm proud". Be confident. Believe in youself. Only if you try that, no one will stop you from loving yourself and the world.
  • Dear Scorpio: I don't even know where to start. You changed my life. You taught me things in an emotional way I never thought I'd experience. With every wise word you said you took my breath away. It doesn't matter how much time will fly, I will always remember you. You are my first love and you make everything feel so real. Everytime you look at me, I feel special. You taught me how to love someone and I taught you how to love yourself. Be happy. No matter how we're gonna end, I want you to remember us. You deserve the entire universe.
  • Dear Sagittarius: You doubt yourself more than anyone else. You wear that beautiful smile everyday, but inside you don't even know who you are. I have so much fun with you everytime we do something together. Don't let that happiness die. People look up on you. And you have to do your own thing. Don't give a shit what others think. Find out what you need, what you want and what you love. Everything else will come by time.
  • Dear Capricorn: You are one of the stongest yet most broken person I know. Or should I say, pretend to know? You hide your emotions, afraid of being hurt or replaced. I tell you something: There are people who love you and care about you. There is hope. You can have whatever you want in life, if you're just willing to accept your feelings and yourself.
  • Dear Aquarius: Being around you is like jumping from one cloud to another. Everything feels easier. Even maths. Life is easier with you. The weight of all the bad things in life are gone. I don't know how you're able to make me feel like this, but I'm sure it makes you very special and I hope you never stop making people feel like this because it's one of the best feelings ever.
  • Dear Pisces: If I'm sad, I know I can always talk to you. You always have a solution to my problem. Even if it's just a sentence like "It's okay, we will find a way.", it works. It makes me feel better. You're the most selfless person I've ever met and you're always there for your loved ones. Just take care of yourself, too, because your life is as important as the lives of everyone else.

anonymous asked:

the original post was out of order but please dont pull that "gay is used as a slur too sometimes" line because gay is often used in a derogatory way but it isnt a slur, it doesnt have the history and weight in it that queer does because it wasnt created by homophobes purely for abusive purposes the way queer was. we can reclaim it individually and be proud of it as a term but we're always going to have to be careful with it and sensitive about other peoples feelings on the matter bc its a slur

Starting from the 1890′s, gay was used as a slur for gay people, especially when they were doing sex-work. It has, contrary to the only popular meaning of “happy” (which it meant around the 12th century), the much less nice meanings “light, easy, lewd, wanton” and has a very promiscuous meaning. This meaning can be traced back to the 16th century, but it wasn’t used only for gay people at the time. In the 17th century it meant like “Of loose and immoral life” which leads us to the meaning associated with homosexuality that we know today. So they didn’t start using gay because it came from happy, they started using it for gay people because they felt gayness was immoral.

(I also read somewhere that the popular use of gay for gay people came from the term “gay cat” as in someone who works on the road and was usually looking for a quick lay, but I’m not sure how true this is - 1920′s America this is I think)

Started to be reclaimed by the gay community around 1920 (alongside queer!), but stayed used as a slur (and to describe it as an illness) definitely until around 1940. And I think around 1950/1955(?) that it’s considered reclaimed. 

Queer was the most common term used by gay men before WWI, and only gained its negative association afterwards.

ALSO when most of the “gay” reclaiming was happening in America, Europe didn’t feel comfortable with the word which has such a negative association, and thus in many countries people are using “queer” because of the eccentric nuance - one of my teachers said that the lgbt community has always had a really good sense of humour

It’s easy to forget that language evolves differently for different people, and though I’m in no way rejecting that queer was definitely used as a slur, gay has a very similar history hmmm

Thank you for enjoying the blog, and don’t worry second anon, you explained it well! Thank you both for sending these requests, and enjoy!



Akira:

  • Akira can’t even keep his identity a secret from his confidants, so there was no chance of him concealing it from S/O for very long. they’ll reach out to the truth
  • S/O discerned his identity very early on, around the time when Morgana introduce the Thieves to Mementos.
  • An acquaintance had constantly harassed them in addition to others, so Akira urged S/O to give him the harasser’s name.
  • They complied, and once Joker had taken care of it, S/O noticed that the harasser’s currently polite behavior was a stark contrast to their initial aggressiveness.
  • S/O asked if Akira provoked the abrupt change of heart, and naturally he denied any involvement on his part.
  • They rephrased their question and implored him of his role in the Phantom Thieves.
  • Akira swatted away the question with another, inquiring them of what they mean by that.
  • S/O vows to keep his identity confidential before they iterated their previous inquiry.
  • He verbalizes nothing, however, his silence speaks volumes to S/O.
  • They aren’t too surprised; they were already aware that he was special, and they understood that he withheld the information from them to protect them.
  • Gradually, Akira becomes more accepting of S/O knowing his secret since he no longer needs to lie to them regarding his ‘extracurricular activities’. he hates lying to them so much
  • S/O thinks that what he’s doing is incredible and really cool, but that doesn’t hinder them from constantly warning him to be careful.
  • On the days prior to infiltrations, S/O will brew him coffee while he’s crafting tools or they’ll write an encouraging note/text reminding him of his excellent leadership or the reason he became a thief.
  • Akira doesn’t receive many harsh wounds due to his agility, only minor cuts, bruises, and soreness.
  • S/O typically massages him, brews tea for relief, or they’ll take care of mundane tasks / chores (feeding the plant / Morgana, dusting, sweeping, etc.).
  • He insists that they shouldn’t trouble themself, but he’s appreciative all the same. 
  • Although, his favorite form of care is when S/O snuggles him and speaks soft words of how their day was. but don’t tell anyone


Ryuji:

  • S/O probably overheard Ryuji blabbering about the Phantom Thieves at decibels only possible for something inhuman. he is cute but loud
  • At that point, their only choice was to hide so as not to alert the Thieves of their presence, and they eavesdropped on the entire conversation as a result.
  • The controversy that surrounded the Phantom Thieves was something S/O was never involved with, but they never thought that the Thieves were inherently evil, and they confirmed that belief at that moment.
  • From what they heard, it sounded as though the Thieves were trying to change things for the better; Ryuji certainly implied as much in the discussion.
  • Once the group disbanded, S/O ducked out of the vicinity and texted Ryuji to meet them at the seaside park; it was usually quiet around this time of day.
  • S/O had to admit they were overwhelmed and rather uneasy about this new information, but they reserved judgment until they heard Ryuji’s perspective.
  • When he arrived as carefree as ever, S/O inquired as to his whereabouts after school, to which he replied that he simply trains with friends.
  • S/O sighed in frustration; they knew it wasn’t entirely a lie, but he showed no signs of hesitation or squeamishness until S/O asked him directly if he was a Phantom Thief.
  • His chocolate eyes widened as he stuttered out, “W-what? Where’d that come from? Babe, there’s no way those guys’ll recruit someone like me.”
  • S/O recited the previous conversation word for word, slowly approaching Ryuji until they were directly in front of him.
  • Flustered, he flat out denied his involvement once more, but seeing the piercing gleam in S/O’s eyes caused him to admit defeat and reveal his identity.
  • Instead of the angry reaction he had expected, they were rather amused by it, which made him even more flustered.
  • Then they grew solemn and asked if this is what he really wanted, and of course he said yes.
  • From then on, S/O became his biggest supporter.
  • when they saw him in his thief outfit for cheeto’s calling card they literally swooned
  • They always tug him into a firm kiss just before he travels to the Metaverse on infiltration days as they order him to “kick some ass”. 
  • Blushing a bright red, he stumbles and trips to rejoin the others as he mentally reiterates that he’s the luckiest guy on earth. goals
  • S/O probably trains with him, too, and they’re proud of his progress as well as the cause he’s fighting for. 
  • They do become worried at times when they see his injuries, but they place their trust in his friends. Besides, they do their best to attend to any damages he receives.
  • Typically, Ryuji sustains abundant bruises and achy joints, especially in / on his legs, so S/O usually places ice in a cloth to apply it to his legs. 
  • They’ll occasionally kiss his injuries gently, and his face glows with a red similar to cherries. the blood goes somewhere else too
  • S/O will even get concealer for him to cover his wounds for the instances he wear shorts. 


Ann:

  • Ann actually hides her secret identity very well; the Phantom Thieves have never been a topic that she discussed with S/O, mostly due to the fact that they both simply had better things to talk about. her conversation skills are too good
  • She couldn’t avoid the subject forever, though, especially not after the massive escalation of the team’s popularity after eliminating Medjed.
  • The moment S/O addressed the topic, Ann began acting suspicious and evasive; it was terribly obvious that she was hiding something.
  • S/O strived to give her the benefit of the doubt, but whenever they spoke to Ann in public, they noticed that her attention always drifted to passerby gossiping about the Phantom Thieves.
  • They decided to bring Ann to their residence to uncover the truth, once and for all.
  • Since they saw no point in dancing around the matter, S/O boldly asked Ann if she was a Phantom Thief.
  • Once again, she acts peculiarly, laughing nervously and flashing forced smiles.
  • S/O sits next to her and grasps both of her hands, their eyes boring through hers as they reassure her that they’re not mad, nor are they going to betray her secret.
  • Ann furrows her brows from their sincerity, and she was surprised from the wave of relief that washed over her formerly tense body.
  • She sighs and rests her head on S/O’s shoulder, apologizing for not disclosing her identity.
  • They rake their fingers through her ashy blonde hair, inquiring as to why she’s doing something so dangerous and reckless.
  • Without hesitation, she claims that she’s a thief because she doesn’t want anyone else to suffer at the hands of atrocious people like she or her friends did.
  • The fervent resolve of her cadence was sufficient enough for S/O, though they’d be lying if they said they weren’t the least bit concerned for her safety. she’s too precious to lose
  • They commit to assisting Ann with her injuries from combat.
  • Ann usually endures ugly bruises on her clavicle and knees; in addition, she’s prone to rashes due to her bodysuit chafing her skin.
  • S/O utilizes ice for the bruises and petroleum jelly for the rashes, although she’s moderately flustered from them being so close. she feels like a princess tho


Yusuke:

  • Although he can be bluntly honest, discerning Yusuke’s identity as a Thief is by far the most difficult out of everyone, mostly due to his unshakable stubbornness.
  • S/O begins to question him after inadvertently observing exceedingly vivid sketches of Palaces and Mementos. They also recognize the Phantom Thieves’ logo from his ‘concept art’.
  • When they ask him about the Thieves, the artist explains that he’s very taken and inspired by the group’s aesthetic.
  • However, S/O remains skeptical, so they bombard Yusuke with questions to no avail; he has an answer for everything. he’s a very tough cookie
  • S/O leaves it at that, until they recall the kitsune outfit design from his sketchbook. 
  • On a complete whim, they abruptly shout “fox” from behind Yusuke, and sure enough, he whipped around as though he were responding to their call. rip ice boy
  • He realized what he did and swiftly attempted to recover as S/O crossed their arms with narrowed eyes.
  • After a few tense moments, they verbally confirmed their suspicion of his being a thief, their lips curving into a triumphant smirk.
  • Yusuke brashly repudiates their assessment, claiming that they have no evidence of his affiliation with the Thieves, to which they counter that he essentially admitted to being involved with them.
  • The two bicker in circles until he finally steps toward them, stammering out an accusation of their trickery with a pink flush on his cheeks. he’s really into them outwitting him tbh
  • He’s more ruffled by the situation than S/O, who proceeded to embrace him and promise they wouldn’t tell anyone.
  • Yusuke immediately calms down and tenderly returns their gesture, apologizing for his lack of faith in them.
  • They do understand his reason for keeping his identity a secret, but they’re really apprehensive about the fact that he’s in constant danger.
  • However, S/O is moved by his adamant passion for the Thieves’ justice, so they claim that they’ll support him in any way they can (albeit they’re still worried).
  • Yusuke barely has any injuries because he’s so nimble, although he’s prone to headaches and a few welts on his chest / knees whenever he gets knocked down.
  • He’ll lay in S/O’s lap as they massage his neck and temples. he dies and goes to heaven
  • They’ll also take breaks to apply ice to the swollen lumps on his chest / knees, and he’s eternally grateful for their care.
  • He feels guilty for involving them and being a burden, but S/O sweetly assures him that they don’t mind.


Makoto:

  • This situation is surprisingly… facile, mainly because S/O stumbles upon her Phantom Thief ‘schedule’ in her planner while they’re on a study date.
  • However, Makoto’s quite adept at dodging their question, stating that she’s investigating the Thieves’ movements in order to catch them in the act.
  • She’s too convincing for S/O to question her further, so they neglect to address the subject again.
  • That is, until Makoto begins to be particularly protective of her phone whenever S/O unexpectedly approaches her; she’ll seem startled for a moment, then she’ll hastily conceal the screen.
  • S/O’s slightly pained by the gesture, and the thought that Makoto’s engaging in shady business definitely crossed their mind. she would never
  • As much as they truly want to believe in Makoto, they succumb to their worry and inform her that if she’s going through anything difficult, she can feel free confide in them.
  • The guilt Makoto feels upon hearing them say that is denser than a black hole, but she knows that her identity must remain confidential for their sake, and hers.
  • One day, S/O witnessed Akechi tailing the group, and right as they were about to text a warning to Makoto, the Thieves vanished.
  • Needless to say, Makoto was fresh out of excuses, so she reluctantly confirmed what S/O had already figured.
  • They were relieved to know the truth, and despite the knowledge that Makoto’s an exceptionally capable individual, S/O couldn’t quell their anxiety regarding her well-being.
  • She declares that she can handle her double life, but she’s thankful for S/O’s concern.
  • That doesn’t hinder them from tending to Makoto’s bruised knuckles via ice, or gently massaging her tired legs.
  • They’ll cook dinner for her on the days that the Thieves manage to obliterate a Palace, and they’ll brew tea as well. she’s so happy that she nearly suffocates s/o when she hugs them


Futaba:

  • S/O discovers Futaba’s secret the same way Sojiro did: the calling card in her room. 
  • She had forgotten to store it in her desk drawer when she invited S/O in her room, and they saw it laying right next to her keyboard. tell them it’s a mousepad
  • When they point it out, Futaba’s too flustered to fabricate a proper denial, and S/O attempts to console her by saying she doesn’t have to talk about it if she can’t.
  • Like magic, she’s instantly mellowed, and she proclaims that it isn’t fair if S/O doesn’t know the whole story.
  • Thus, Futaba discloses everything pertaining to her affiliation with the Phantom Thieves. 
  • Naturally, S/O is absolutely mindblown; nevertheless, they admire Futaba’s courage, and they’re considerably pleased to know that she’s made invaluable friends in the process.
  • The combination of the physical demands / dangers of infiltrations and Futaba’s evident lack of stamina makes S/O slightly uneasy; however, she hugs them and iterates that the team takes good care of her. she mostly takes care of them tho
  • Futaba doesn’t really acquire wounds from the Metaverse, save for occasional headaches and cramped shoulders.
  • S/O inevitably massages her achy muscles and joints, but they also give her a cute Featherman neck pillow that she keeps in the glove compartment of the Mona car. but where does it when he turns back into a cat
  • the mystery deepens


Haru:

  • can u look me in the eye and tell me that pink sweater and fluffy hair would ever belong to a brainwashing heathen
  • Haru’s thief persona is probably the most difficult to ascertain not because she’s secretive, but the very notion of her being a notorious criminal is… unlikely, to say the least. 
  • S/O acknowledges her strong heart, but the only act of thievery she’s committed is stealing their own heart. 
  • They only discover her secret by sheer coincidence, when they spot Haru strolling through the city with an unfamiliar cat. 
  • The two cease their walk in an alley, and S/O was going to greet Haru until they overheard her speaking to the cat. 
  • The temptation to call a psychiatrist was strong; however, they froze when they heard her mutter, “B-Beauty Thief…? Mona, are you truly certain about this? You seem to miss the Phantom Thieves, and I’m sure they miss you as well…”
  • S/O can’t entirely wrap their head around Haru supposedly conversing with a cat, but they were stunned to hear that she was involved with the Thieves, albeit indirectly.
  • They retired to their home to ponder this new information, and they feared that Haru was putting herself in danger; therefore, S/O sent her a text inviting her to their residence for lunch tomorrow.
  • Once the two were finished with their meal, S/O implored Haru of her status as a ‘Beauty Thief’, to which she blushed in response. it’s perfect don’t worry
  • She couldn’t possibly lie to S/O in good conscience, and she trusted them well enough, so confessed her predicament to them.
  • Although S/O hadn’t come to terms with her double life, they harbored no grudges against her since she was fairly new to the concept as well.
  • Haru’s determination to redeem her cruel father was apparent, so S/O clutched her dainty hand in theirs as they proceeded to verbalize their support.
  • They never went back on their word, even when her father passed away or when the world turned against the Phantom Thieves.
  • Haru is rather vulnerable to callused or blistered hands from wielding her heavy ax.
  • In the case of callused hands, S/O prepares a bowl of warm water with some epsom salt sprinkled in. They even prepare tea and aid her in drinking it.
  • If Haru’s inflicted with blisters, they take the necessary steps to puncture the wound and apply ointment to it prior to bandaging it.
  • She tries so hard to subdue a wince for S/O’s sake, and she’s frequently telling them not to worry. she’s v strong
  • Similar to Akira, snuggling is the best remedy Haru could ask for since it eases her unrest on days preceding infiltration. 
"They don’t need us anymore"
  • -"I feel like its the fans that they were talking about here. You know because we've been through it all with them and now we're all growing up and moving on"
  • It's true. I never really understood why some fans did the most peculiar things over made up people and shows but i now know. I saw the first episode of teen wolf when i was in grade 8 i think it was and the first episode didn't really get me but i decided to continue to watch it and i soon feel in love with it. I font know what it is, weather it was the plot or the fact i love werewolves and supernatural stuff or it was because the people who played a part in it slayed their character. Or it could have been the fact that these people made it work.
  • I had a shit highschool life and i remember getting picked on and not wanting to get up in the mornings but i always wanted to when teen wolf was on that night.
  • I remember always wanting to do nothing i jsut didn't want to be here some day's but watching shows like teen wolf really did make me happy.
  • I know know why tv shows and made up charecters really mean so much to some people.
  • Because we connect with them. They play roles that we never realized we needed.
  • They say the words that we never thought we'd here or ever thing of saying.
  • They bring the meaning to life for some.
  • And they give us hope.
  • They teach us anticipation.
  • How to laugh.
  • How to love.
  • How to cry.
  • How to get over a hearbreak or friendship.
  • How to get along with people.
  • They teach us how to live.
  • They give us life.
  • Im so proud of the cast of teen wolf and the director and creator's of the show.
  • And i thank them so much because weather they know it or not they made a big impact on my life.
  • And i appreciate them for all they have done and am extremely proud.
  • The same goes for the vampire diaries, chicago P.D, chicago med, chicago fire.
URGENT: #KeepHerInTheGame Home Stretch Plans

Pitches, Our #KeepHerInTheGame Campaign is down to its final days! We are excited about the work that we have all done so far, but we have a bit more to do. We know you may be feeling slightly down from recent news but hey, we are still in this! The game has not been called. So we need to make the most of these last few days. After some reevaluation, we’ve decided to shake things up a bit. We need a BIG LAST PUSH and we can’t do it without you all. All Pitches on deck. Pretty please (yeah, we’re not too proud to beg), we have ONE WEEK TO EXECUTE THIS… 

 The Plan: 

Fox went through a big shake up this week with the ousting of a prominent network figure. Without mentioning any names - let’s use that to our advantage. Right now more than ever Fox needs to show female viewers that they matter. Pitch is all about female empowerment and advancement. There is no better way to prove that by keeping Pitch. 

Dana Walden is one of two executives who will make the final decision whether Pitch gets another swing or not. Before she is an executive, she is first and foremost a woman, a mother, a wife, and a sister. Let’s appeal to those sides of her. Undoubtedly, as mother (possibly of a daughter) she too must love the message of empowerment and courage Ginny Baker sends not just to girls, but everyone. As a high powered FEMALE executive at a major television network, some of her struggles may have been similar to Ginny Baker’s. She must have been there to fight for S1, & we trust that she believes in S2 as well.

That’s why we are asking that you guys 1. call the main Fox number (310) 369-1000 and ask to be connected to Dana Walden’s office. Obviously we’re not going to get to speak directly with her, but we’ll be connected to her office and leave a message for her with someone (probably an assistant) asking Dana to renew Pitch and briefly tell her what the show means to you. 

Example: This is ___________, I’m from ____________, and I would like to ask Mrs. Walden to renew Pitch because of the positive message that it sends to women. I would also, like to thank her for taking a chance on it last season. Thank you for your time. (Have a nice day!)

Remember to be brief!!! These are business people so they’ll be quite busy, and hopefully they will get LOTS of calls, so let’s not take up too much of their time. 

Also please remember to be POLITE and RESPECTFUL. Ranting, rambling, and rudeness gets us nowhere. Please keep those things in mind. Again, we emphasize being brief. The call should be no longer than 30-45 seconds. We’d love to keep the calls coming until at least May 1st. We know we have asked a lot of you all, and you have met us in the middle every single time. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. 

2. Snail mail is tangible and it goes so far with our message. Please, please consider sending Dana a short note by mail starting today 4/21/17 all the way until 5/1/17 emphasizing why it would be a good move for Fox to keep Pitch on the air. Remind them that they already have a gem in Pitch and it would be foolish of them to let it go. They got it right with this one, they just need to nurture it. Again PLEASE SEND A SNAIL MAIL NOTE. These notes could really make the difference. 

3. Finally our last twitter push will be on Wednesday, April 26th at 7PM. We will be trending #ThankYouInAdvanceDana. Let’s thank our lady executive ahead of the big decision for keeping Pitch on!! Let’s show her that we trust her and we know that both her and Gary will do the right thing by keeping Pitch on the air for another season! Remember: we don’t want to be lowkey passive aggressive, we want to be genuine. How will you feel when you get the news? Translate that feeling into a genuine thank you tweet to Dana for all she’s done for Pitch and will do in the future! Please come and join us for this one! You guys really showed up for #WhoseLineDriveIsItAnyway and we’d love to have that kind of response for this one as well! Invite your friends and make it a party!!

Let’s show Fox just how awesome and grateful our PitchFam is!

Examples: #ThankYouInAdvanceDana for putting women first at Fox by showing your support with Pitch S2!

 #ThankYouInAdvanceDana for getting it right with Keeping Her In The Game for another inning. 

We gave you a few options, that way everyone can join in, in a way that makes you comfortable! We really ask that you do the phone calls and notes especially though. Those are going to be directly reaching her and will definitely get noticed. Tweet us when you do and we’ll RT your hard work!

If you’re still reading, we love you, you’re the best most dedicated fans who deserve the world!!!

If you haven’t participated in any campaign activities thus far, NOW! IS! THE! TIME!  ALL PITCHES ON DECK in the final stretch. 

Every MLB team has its closer who comes out in those final innings to secure the game. Starting today #WeAreAllClosers. So get out on that mound and throw some balls folks.

anonymous asked:

I still think we're getting Bellarke, mostly because it's clear the writers have ZERO intent in giving him any other real love interest and I refuse to believe they consider MURPHY more worthy of a love story than Bell. But I really feel we're heading for a Bellamy who has to stand faithfully by while his true love explicitly carries out her dead "soulmate's" (who would've had him dead) destiny, and that is the most depressing ending for him I can imagine.

Disagree. L/xa has already fulfilled her in-universe destiny (as it served the plot), as much as I know that I’m going to get hate for this, it seems very clear that L/xa’s in-universe “destiny” was also to begin to form a tentative alliance between the Arkadians and the Grounders (largely prompted by Clarke) and then die, so we could have the big AI reveal, which is exactly what she’s done. She had no other destiny outside of that. 

Clarke on the other hand, has always been our hero. She’s the focus of the story. We are watching her develop as a person and a leader every Season (even in Season 3A where it seemed she’d stagnated-she was still growing-just not the active kind we’d been used to seeing from her). This Season her story is obviously about becoming her own type of leader, we’ve heard people mention L/xa, absolutely true, both Niylah and Roan have mentioned her more than once, but the key is when they mention her. Both mention her at times when Clarke seems like she needs motivation, they continue to tie L/xa to Clarke not just in a romantic fashion, but in a leadership sense as well. 

In 405, L/xa is mentioned because Roan and Clarke are once again discussing a plan:

Clarke: “Before you kidnapped him, did Kane tell you about the Nightblood solution?”

Roan: “He tried. Sounds to me like you’re making the next Commander.”

Here, Clarke shakes her head a bit-she’s clearly frustrated

Clarke: “The Flame is gone and you know it.”

Roan: “If Octavia is to be believed.”

Clarke: “Roan, this isn’t a conspiracy. I am doing everything I can to save all of us.”

Roan: “No you’re not. You grieve for L/xa, yet you’ve learned nothing from her. She was Trikru, but she rose above loyalty to clan. You tell yourself you have, too. The great Wanheda, the Commander of Death, who says she wants to save everyone, but builds a ship for herself, for her people.” 

This is not a romantic L/xa reference, although it could be seen as one. Roan is calling Clarke’s leadership out. While a lot of us think L/xa wasn’t the greatest leader, she did manage to put aside divisions that had stood for almost a century and form a coalition between clans when no one else could. She even put aside the vengeance she must have desired for Costia’s death so that Azgeda could join. Even after Nia plotted against her, L/xa didn’t kick Azgeda out of the coalition, she got rid of the head of the snake (so to speak) and put Roan on the throne instead. Clarke had not done that as of 405, because, as Roan states, if a plan isn’t going to save everyone like you promised, why waste manpower trying to make it happen?

In 406, Clarke is detailing what the plan is: 

Clarke: “I’m going to the island today, to take rocket fuel to Raven and my mom so they can make Nightblood.”

Niylah: “I’m sorry I couldn’t stop that boy from destroying your home.”

Clarke: “It’s not your fault. Now we don’t have to worry about locking 450 people out when the deathwave comes. Or sharing it with Azgeda.” insert self-deprecating smile.

Clarke’s been obviously stressed since she started talking to Niylah, and it’s not a coincidence that Niylah chooses this moment to mention L/xa.

Niylah: “L/xa would be proud of you. We’re all your people now. She believed that, too. She lives on through you.”

All of this could absolutely be seen as romantic, but as Niylah was unaware of Clarke and L/xa’s romantic relationship, it seems more likely that she’s talking about leadership. The entire sentence is about L/xa’s desire to merge all the clans into one coalition and how Clarke is now essentially trying to do the same. 

Also the “She lives on through you.” could be excellent foreshadowing for Clarke not having to take the chip. She doesn’t need a “chip” L/xa when she carries her with her at all times. 

In 408 L/xa, or at least her position, is mentioned twice (once by Roan and again by Murphy):

Again, Roan and Clarke are discussing a plan:

Roan: “You OK?”

Clarke: “Are you?”

Roan: “Nightbloods. You think I’d have learned my lesson after L/xa. We’re doing the right thing.”

Clarke: “You sure about that?”

Roan: “Certainty’s a luxury leaders can’t afford.”

Clarke: “I’m no king.”-This is Clarke rejecting leadership or at least her ability to lead

Roan: “Maybe not, but you were born for this. L/xa knew it and so do I. You don’t back down when things get hard.”

Clarke: “It’s always hard.”

Roan: “Yet here you are. I know you don’t believe it now, but…one day they will thank you for what you’re doing here. ”

Clarke: “Murphy won’t. Emori won’t.”

Roan: “If it works they will.”

Clarke: “What if it doesn’t work?”

Roan: “Then we die, knowing we did everything we could to save our people.”

Clarke: “Did you come up here to make me feel better?”

Roan: “It’s never been my strength.”

This is another conversation about leadership. Roan, despite his quip about comfort not being his strength, absolutely intended to make Clarke feel better. And he used L/xa to do that. Clarke put herself down, she’s doubting her ability to make the tough calls. She doesn’t want to do this anymore. She’s faltering. And so Roan reminds her that she’s already done it before. That a large part (if not all) of the reason L/xa fought so hard for Arkadia to become a part of the coalition was because Clarke insisted on it. He’s probably realized that Clarke is the reason he’s King of Azgeda and not dead. He’s using L/xa’s name to fortify Clarke’s leadership.

Now on to Murphy (who fighting for his life and Emori’s):

Murphy: “Who the hell do you think you are, huh?”

Clarke: “I’m trying to save us.” 

Murphy: “Save us? Ah right, Wanheda, savior of us all! But maybe you’re forgetting that last time you saved us, I was saving you!”

Clarke: “I’m not forgetting.”

Murphy: “You haven’t forgotten? Then please, you don’t need to do this. Don’t do it. Please, please, you don’t need to do this. You know it’s too bad that you weren’t a real Nightblood, because then you could have been Commander. Imagine how many people you could have killed then.”

Now, Murphy’s line about the Commander, especially given so soon after Roan’s statement (That Clarke was born to be a leader. That L/xa knew it.) Probably struck a chord with Clarke. Murphy, like so many of the Arkadians, have no good experiences with the Commander and Clarke herself has seen what L/xa did under that title. Does she really want to strive to be a leader like L/xa? Is that what she wants to emulate? Does she want her legacy to be death and destruction?

And Clarke, after her conversation with Murphy can finally answer that question: “No.”

After all of these conversations about leadership that specifically mention L/xa? What does Clarke do? She rejects one of L/xa’s tenants: “That’s what it means to be a leader, Clarke. The truth is, we must look into the eyes of our warriors and say, “go die for me.”-L/xa in 214 “Bodyguard of Lies”

Instead of looking at Emori, at Murphy, at anyone else to take the Nightblood serum and see if it will work, Clarke chooses to inject herself. So yes, there were lots of L/xa mentions this Season from seemingly random individuals (and we might get even more), but every single one has served a purpose. To remind Clarke that she’s a leader, to give her strength, to show her she’s already made these decisions before and to encourage her to be her own kind of leader. The one she was before she began taking L/xa’s leadership advice (which might have worked for L/xa and all the Commanders before her, but was slowly killing Clarke on the inside.)

You haven’t been witnessing the story of Clarke carrying out L/xa’s destiny. You’ve been witnessing the story of Clarke finally stepping into her own. And if that’s not someone you want to see Bellamy with (who, by the way, has actually been doing his own growing-although his is more emotional-learning who he is outside of just being Octavia’s big brother), then maybe you should….ship him with someone else?

Rick and Michonne go on their date and get a little bit closer...

“You know, I’m starting to think the whole bad boy thing is a ruse,” Michonne focused on Rick’s face with difficulty.

“What makes you say that?” his hand pushed into the small of her back, his other one still wrapped firmly around her palm.

“Well,” Michonne steadied her breathing, “You’ve been opening doors, pulling out chairs, slow dancing…” Rick had insisted on picking her up from her dorm room, sweeping up in his pickup truck and waiting for her to come outside. The sight of him in that dark blue denim shirt had nearly floored her. The closer she got to him, the sharper the picture came into focus, from his still damp curls and five o’ clock shadow, to the clean scent of his cologne. Michonne was glad that she’d worn flats tonight. Her legs were weak already.

She lost her train of thought again when Rick pulled her closer, swinging her in time with the music.

“Maybe I’m not trying to scare you off,” that smirk of his had done things to her last night, and right now was no exception.

“I don’t scare so easily,” she teased, ignoring the way her heart seemed to be hammering its way out of her chest.

“Really?” he tilted his head, leaning in closer to her. “Cause last night, you couldn’t even kiss me without—”

She flushed, and Rick laughed. “I’m sorry,” Michonne mumbled. It was amazing how quickly her bodied had shifted to flushed and horny to completely and utterly sick. Alcohol was a hell of a thing.

“Hey, don’t be sorry,” Rick leaned forward swiftly, dropping a kiss on her lips. “See? You made it this time.”

Her laughter escalated, even as the blush deepened beneath her dark skin. “Maybe I shouldn’t drink again,” she admitted.

“Nah,” Rick shook his head, the curls bouncing. “Just maybe not two whole bottles of wine.”

“That was your fault,” she fired back, shifting her feet as the music changed.

“True,” he nodded in agreement. “To be fair, I didn’t know it was your first time drinking.”

“It wasn’t my first time,” Michonne’s embarrassment mounted. Rick smiled at her.

“First party then,” he amended. “I hope I made it good for you.”

“You did,” Michonne leaned tentatively towards him, their chaste dance tonight reminding her of what it felt like to have him pressed full against her.

“Good,” the pressure on her back increased until they were chest to chest. “It’s definitely my favorite party so far.”

“So far?” she wanted to kiss him again, wanted to make up for last night.

“Well,” Rick seemed content to keep their faces just scant inches apart, his eyes boring into her. “My girl has got to be at my future parties. And if you’re there, I’m betting they’ll be good.”

“Your girl?” Michonne’s eyebrows jumped in surprise, even as her pulse raced.

“Well, I figured it’s going to take a couple more dates, but yeah.” Rick’s forehead rested on hers, his lips just millimeters away.

“Cocky,” she accused.

“Confident,” he corrected.

Michonne did not answer. She was too busy kissing him. The taste of him was enough to make her dizzy again, but she attacked it with fervor anyway. Rick responded in kind, eagerly molding his mouth to hers, plunging his tongue between her lips. His hands tightened around her, dangerously close to the hem of her skirt again. She leaned into his touch, heat flooding her.

“Well hey there,” the sound startled the two of them apart. Rick was the flushed one now, but Michonne was no less breathless. The couple turned towards the new arrivals.

Glenn was standing there, Maggie in hand, both looking amusedly at them.

“I see you guys got started without us,” Glenn grinned.

“You’re late,” Michonne spoke up, surprised that she even had the ability to speak.

“Ten minutes,” Glenn shrugged. “That’s her fault.” He nodded at Maggie.

“Couldn’t get my curling iron to work,” she explained, looking unapologetic. Michonne secretly wished that the iron never worked at all. She missed the feeling of Rick already.

He was unruffled, already leading her back to their table in the corner of the club. Rick helped her into their side of the booth, climbing in after her. He draped his arm casually over Michonne’s shoulders, the gesture all at once familiar and foreign. Glenn’s clever eyes didn’t leave the couple across from him.

“So,” Glenn began, “What’s going on with this?”

“I could ask you the same thing,” Rick fired right back, his eyes turning to his step-sister. “I slept on the couch last night. Maggie, where’d you end up?”

Maggie reddened, but tilted her chin defiantly. “With my boyfriend.”

Rick tilted his head, amused. “I’m sure your boyfriend will treat you well.” It was obviously a poorly veiled threat.

“I will,” Glenn was undaunted. “What’s going on with you and Michonne?”

“Glenn…” Michonne warned her friend but he wasn’t backing down.

Rick smiled, turning his head to look at Michonne. “What’s going on with us?” he asked her, looking curious.

“We're…” Michonne frantically scrambled to find a way to define how she felt about this man beside her. “We’re dating,” she settled on the safe title, directing her attention to the menu.

“We’re dating,” Rick echoed, grinning as a waitress brought water to the table.

Glenn nodded, seemingly satisfied. “I’m sure you’ll treat Michonne well,” he repeated Rick’s words back to him.

Rick’s smile widened. He let his arm drop from her shoulders to the seat between them, his fingers curling around hers. “I’m sure Michonne will let me know if I mess up,” he said.

“You’re doing great so far,” she couldn’t keep the smile off of her face. Even as food arrived and small talk deepened until both couples were comfortable, her mind was focused almost exclusively on the man beside her. He had an easy, affable nature that was magnetizing.

“Well,” he asked her later, the faint traces of a grin playing across his face. “Guess I should get you back home.” Glenn and Maggie had already departed, certainly rushing off for their next tryst.

“I don’t want to go home,” Michonne felt her lips shaping the words almost without her permission.

“No?” he looked surprised, his head tilting.

“No,” she shook her head, her braids brushing down her back as she moved.

“What do you want to do?” he asked.

Michonne stared at him, eyes wide, blood pumping, unsure if she would even be able to articulate what she wanted.

“I—” she began, flushing despite the coolness of the air around them.

“You sure?” Rick seemed to know what she was asking for.

She nodded, swallowing hard. “I am.” Maybe she didn’t know exactly what she was wanted, but she knew she needed it. Badly.

“All right then,” that accent twanged over her ear, accompanied by the feeling of his hand gripping hers. She sat rigidly in the truck, damn near hyperventilating as they got closer and closer to his home. Michonne briefly considered changing her mind until she looked over at Rick at a stop light. He was looking back at her, his eyes burning with something she had never seen before but instantly recognized.

That look deepened as he led her to his bedroom, locking the door behind him.

“Michonne, you comfortable?” he asked her as she settled on the bed.

“Come here,” she leaned backwards into his pillows, reaching for him. Rick toed off his boots quickly, joining her on the plush surface.

He settled his weight on top of her, covering her body with his, his lips meeting hers in a slow kiss. The feeling from last night ignited again, burning through her limbs, powering her body. His hands were everywhere, stroking and tugging at her until Michonne could not control her gasps. It became clear to her that alcohol had only been a minor factor in how she was feeling last night; Rick had been responsible for her intoxication.

“Rick,” she whispered his name, sighing as his mouth trailed down her neck. Her hands clutched at his arms, working their way down until she could slide them beneath his shirt. He paused, shedding the offending article.

“You ok?” he misread her open-mouthed stare.

In answer, she lunged forward, wrapping her legs around his waist. The groan that escaped his throat only egged her on. She shimmied out of her dress, glad that she had taken the time to select pretty underwear before their date. Rick wasted no time in moving his mouth to her newly exposed skin, working her over until her head lulled back.

“Does that feel good?” his voice was a rough whisper against her skin as his hand slipped beneath the delicate lace.

“Yes,” she gasped, her fingernails digging into Rick’s shoulders.

He increased his pressure, his lips on hers, his fingers working their magic. It was everything; the taste of him, the smell of him, the feel of his hands, the heat pressing hard into her stomach. Michonne let out a cry as her body contracted and released in one spectacular moment, going limp beneath Rick’s body.

“Holy crap,” she sighed, flushed and sweating.

Rick rolled over, lying beside her, looking all too proud of himself. “Feeling good?” he questioned.

She smiled at him, uncaring that he was teasing. “I just need a second. Then we can…” she gestured weakly.

Rick laughed, his deep voice rolling over her. “We don’t have to do that tonight.” He leaned over to kiss her, lingering to nuzzle her neck.

“What about you?” there was still a very pronounced bulge in his jeans.

“I’ll be fine,” he assured her. “We don’t have to do it all tonight.”

Michonne opened her mouth to protest, but he cut her off with a burning kiss.

“You’re my girl now, remember?” he asked, still smiling. “We’ve got plenty of time.”

Michonne smiled at him, her heart filling up with affection. “But what if I want to touch you?” she whispered, rolling over, her fingers working their way beneath his waistband.

Rick let out a deep groan, his head falling forward as his breathing stuttered. Michonne tightened her hand around him, tugging gently.

“I’m not going to tell you no,” Rick let out one last laugh before Michonne rendered him incapable of coherent thought.

Afterwards, the new couple laid in bed together in comfortable silence. Rick’s arm was around her waist, his head buried in her hair.

“Spend the night again,” he whispered, his voice heavy with sleep.

Michonne smiled, spinning in his arms until she could face him. “Ok,” she agreed, kissing him on the forehead. She watched him as he fell asleep before drifting off herself, wondering whether a house party could be the thing that changed her life forever.

He forms from nothing, particles that stitch together in thin air to first reveal his face. He wears a grin, one that rivals the eeriness of the Chester Cat. The black cloak comes next, his figure solidifying in front of the bloody scene.

“Lee Eunae. Born November 12, 1988.” His voice booms over the two of them. “Kang Geonsik. Born October 26, 1985. Your time has come.”

“W-who are you?” The woman is quivering and hyperventilating, failing to realize that she no longer needs to take breaths. Yet, she still trembles and cries out, “w-what do you want from me?!”

“I must bring you away. The underworld is waiting. It’s time for your judgment and the world of the afterlife.”

“I’m not going anywhere with you!” The man nurses his wound at his head having not fully grasped what has happened to him. “I don’t know who you are!”

“I am the Messenger of Heaven and Hell. Bridge of all the worlds and the universes.” He grits it out his teeth, exhausted from having to explain to these pathetic humans. “I am the Grim Reaper. And you-”

He points to each of them, “-are dead.”
