calling-in-sick


Aww..sounds like maybe Seth called a sick child at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia yesterday.

ETA: Just to be clear I don’t know if that’s what this means or if it means something else or people are just fucking around on Twitter. Like any story take it with a huge grain of Mortons.

Hi. My name is Amanda Hayes, and this is my journal. Maybe keeping it will help me figure out what I am doing here. Who I am.

Last week, when Robert asked me to marry him, I think I panicked. I suddenly just couldn’t picture it anymore –  husband, kids, a house in the suburbs, the white picket fence. I told him I needed a little time to give him my answer, and I saw the disappointment written all over his face. Those big, sad, blue eyes filling with hurt; his mouth set in a thin line. He deserves an answer. I know he does.

That night I tossed and turned in my bed; skin slick with cold sweat and my heart racing. When morning dawned, I went up to call in sick – I work at a law firm – and as I hung up the phone, all I could think was: I have to get out of here. To get away from everything and everyone.

punkassaris asked:

imagine au where Aris and Thomas both work at a library but they always have different shifts so they only ever smile at each other as one is coming in and the other leaves. and they never actually talk or even know each other's name but thomas thinks Aris is really hot and then one night someone calls in sick so thomas and aris end up having to hold a shift together and its a pretty dead night so they get to talk while they're stocking books and Thomas now thinks aris is hella adorable 1/2

 and aris stubs his toe at one point and starts swearing in greek (because its his first language) and thomas finds it hotter then he probably should because he really has no clue what he’s saying but yeah library AUs 2/2  

[HIGH PITCHED SCREECHING] THIS IS SO CUTE.

But also then they go get coffee after closing the library right?? Because they totally hit it off and just didn’t want the conversation to end (although it probably should have because it was late but that isn’t the point.)

and at some point Thomas asks aris about his favourite band or smth and he gets so passionate about it that he reverts back to talking in greek without noticing?? And thomas doesn’t have a clue as to what he’s saying, but hEY aris is smiling a lot and his eyes are actually sparkling so it doesn’t really matter. he kinda just sits back and listens to aris talk until he realises what happened?? yes.

Who isn’t crazy sometimes? Who hasn’t driven around a block hoping a certain person will come out; who hasn’t haunted a certain coffee shop, or stared obsessively at an old picture; who hasn’t toiled over every word in a letter, taken four hours to write a two-sentence email, watched the phone praying it will ring; who doesn’t lay awake at night sick with the image of her sleeping with someone else?

Have you ever watched the person you love slowly lose interest in you? It starts off little, you can’t quite put your finger on it, but something is different, something has changed. Everything feels slightly off, off like a monday. You can almost hear it in their voice, you can see it in their eyes. You think it’s you, you start over thinking every single little thing, wondering what you did, where it all went wrong, how you can fix it. It starts off with little things like waking up to no text, calls become fewer and farther between, the lack of effort, emotion and the excuses begin to pile up. Soon it starts tearing you apart, the feeling of not being good enough begins to make you feel physically sick. Soon you find yourself hysterically crying in your car at three in the morning because you can’t hold yourself together anymore. You know it’s coming, you know you can’t do anything to stop it. The aching doesn’t stop.

I’m really tired that is the only reason this happened

also if someone asks what the hell this is just tell them it’s a clock and a notepad falling asleep on a tv that will obviously explain everything I bet they both snore really badly

I never lied dean, it’s important, it’s fundamental’ 

Something about Crowley’s speech just wouldn’t let me rest or work. So I just had to write this down. 

There is something luring in his voice, in the tone he is speaking, quietly but contentedly, demanding yet affectionate. Misleading, I would even say sexual.  

In 9x11, he told Dean ‘so basically…. We’re family’ . That was the last time someone called Dean family and this is doing something to Dean, because for him, family is the highest level of love and acceptance. He belongs somewhere. Crowley knows that, and he is the welcoming father of an adopting family.

The sexual part is both in the visual and the tone. He is sitting in Dean’s bedroom, in his most intimate place in the world, the one place he considers ‘his’. He is sitting there, comfortably, looking over Dean’s body on the bed. And he speaks with a low, luring voice. He addresses  Dean’s animalistic-demonic self now, ‘let’s growl at the moon.’ Crowley is addressing something very deep, but he is doing this in the subtext, so Dean can’t quite refuse him in that particular moment.

He is using some kind of parental / lover authority, open your eyes, see what I see (come, come to me, you are mine now ). All so very affectionate. This is exactly what Dean needs now, when he knows his decisions have led him to this place, he is full of guilt and self-hatred, and there is someone who is willing to accept him.

He is addressing Dean’s trust issues ‘you have to believe me….. I might not have told you the entire truth, but I never lied. I never lied dean, it’s important, it’s fundamental’

 He is building something. If he wants Dean to become his personal ‘hellhound’ , he needs Dean to trust him.

Crowley knows that Dean might wake up more powerful than he himself is, so he is building trust from the start, not allowing Dean to oppose him, he knows he needs Dean, and he plays with his mind so that Dean won’t think he is stronger than him, like an abusive partner that is making the victim think they are nothing if not for him.

And after all that, he is getting close, with his speech he lays the foundations for that trust, and he is getting closer, he is touching Dean, yet again, so gently, lays the blade into Dean’s hand, and places that hand on Dean’s heart.  That is not a form of casual touching, and most of all not for Dean. When was the last time someone touched him so gently?

Listen to me Dean Winchester, what you are feeling right now, it’s not death, it’s life, a new kind of life. Open your eyes, Dean. See what I see, feel what I feel. Let’s go take a howl at that moon.’

And Dean obeys.
