I see a lot of people going off about Noora’s season being a wasted season and how it wasn’t good at all and I’m like?? I know the William storyline isn’t great but the reason S2 was so long was because there was more going on? Sana and the hijab gang?? Eva and Noora trying to find out if Isak was doin the do with pchris?? Eva getting over Jonas??? Vilde’s eating disorder?? THE EASTER EPISODE?? Eskild being introduced??? Iconic. The focus on sexual assault?? Noora’s take down of Nikolai?? William showing a ~good~ side by writing Noora’s essay about the refugees?? Sana’s talk with Noora about clashing opinions?? So many good things. Focus on the things that were good about season 2 not just Noora and Willhelm. Season 2 wasn’t a wasted season. It’s not the best season, but it’s definitely not a waste.
It must be said
the oddity –
all these years
and around this date
we have clashed
to opposite ends
So, happy birthday,
to you, woman of all shades:
white to brown to peach;
of lace and drapes,
tracks and trims;
many happy returns
of the day, for the year,
you turn older, wiser,
a little more jaded
May you have many more
to come, to celebrate,
though you prefer low-key,
I wish there had been
but one year of respite –
truce at this time –
to pamper you;
make you feel special
on your special day.
May your wishes come true;
May your growth be divine;
May your heart find solace;
May your soul soar supreme.
Request: Hi there! I’ve been obsessed with Happier by Ed Sheeran lately. I was wondering if maybe you could do one where Jughead and the Reader broke up and Betty and Jug are together and maybe the readers a singer and she sings the song at a show or something? Thank youuu 💕💕 You writing is amazing btw
It had been a month and you still found yourself huddled up in your duvet, trying to keep your mind off of recent events by listening to Hamilton and Divide on repeat. Said recent events included a certain boy who’s name used to make your cheeks heat up and your smile bloom wide.
Currently, the name sent a spear of repentance, grief and anguish through you, practically embedding itself in your heart so you could hear it tear in two.
i love how well this series balances humorous and serious moments. like, this is a big plot that has some pretty dark moments, and it doesn’t shy away from violence. but at the same time there’s always a few cometic sequences??? and they’re always genuinely funny and really add dimensions to the characters! and yet it doesn’t take away from the seriousness of the show and the plot they’re handling. the writing is just phenomenal all around and i like that they’re letting the characters have so fun too without dragging the quality down.
Authors Notes: So, I wrote this a little while ago and I’m really nervous for y’all to read it. It gets really steamy in this one. But a quick reminder that I don’t write smut so that won’t be in here. But this is as close to smut as I’ll get.
Notes/ Warnings: Fluff, biting, steamy-not-smut-but-really-close-steam, tears, bad memories, mentions of being shot, kissing
You closed the door behind your parents after watching them disappear down the gravel driveway. It was late and it took three hours for all of the guest, caterers and cleaning staff to finish up and go home. And, now finally, at 12:46 am, your parents had left for the airport. You dragged yourself into the kitchen and sat down on one of the bar stools and sighed into your hands.
A strong pair of hands gripped your bare shoulders from behind and you sighed again but with a smile, knowing there was only one other person in the house. Thank goodness Tessa chose a strapless dress for you. Steve massaged your shoulders and upper back and you reveled in the brief contact he had with your bare skin.
Steve’s lips kissed the crook of your neck and he hugged your waist. “You’re amazing, you know that?”
You chuckled and leaned your head back on his shoulder. “That’s cause I’ve got you.”
“Nah,” He kissed your cheek. “You’ve always been like this.”
So people are hating on this scene, and that’s fine, but the Lyla is ooc accusations are bull and need to stop. We are talking about Lyla Michaels here. Amanda Waller’s right hand man. The woman who was completely fine with putting a bomb in someone’s head. The woman who clearly looked up to Amanda Waller. The woman who only left Argus and Suicide Squad when she realized it was endangering her child. The woman who is totally fine with keeping secrets from her significant other for security. Are you seriously going to tell me that its out of character for her to push Felicity to the side the moment she thinks Felicity might get in the way of saving her husband? Really? I love Lyla Michaels specifically because she does whatever it takes to protect her family and country. Lyla knew that she didn’t need Felicity, and thought that Felicity might be a liability. Of course she pushed her to the side. She and Felicity are definitely not bff gal pals, but even if they were, saying that Lyla wouldn’t remove a liability in rescuing her husband is ridiculous. Stop with the whole ‘Lyla is ooc’ because its obvious that you’re not concerned about or even aware of Lyla’s character at all.
I just finished Episode 23 of Greater Boston and Wow, what was that. I hadn’t expected to be hit like this.
The way things are piecing together and coming down is amazing.
Powell’s whole talk with Charlotte was incredible. The way she talked about the lack of opportunity to get angry, the judgement that her, that black women get for it, and the way it disconcerted Charlotte all together was awesome.
Also, I really, really love that she’s never limited to her activism. As she said, she’s a person with hobbies and a life outside it all. That’s something media frequently erases, transforming people into ideias, images of what they stand for only; forgetting that there’s always more, and erasing the importance of it. And, seriously, I’ve never seen a more badass exposition about being a Trekkie.
The most relatable part for me, though, was Nika’s monologue at the end. Omg, was it heartbreking. It was so well-done I’m shaken until now. You could just feel the helplessness of losing her brother, and with him, all the order and help and attention he brought to ho her life (and pretty much personified).
Then, the maddening loneliness, the craving for attention, any attention. And, in face of an uncaring world, an ambivalent, revengful anger. An anger towards the world itself, and how messed up it is, towards the people that ignore you, that don`t seem to care about your suffering at all. How can they not do anything?? But, at the same time, an anger towards yourself, because, wow, you`re being so selfish and ridiculous, you can`t even get it all together on your own… that must be something wrong with you for people notto care like this, there has to be. You`re annoying and stupid. You deserve it. And, as a product of this contradiction, the blind dedication to anyone who brings care and attention. Anyone one who seems to bring back what you`ve lost. And, in one way or another, an outlet of everything you’re feeling.
Nika’s whole work in the lottery, wanting people to feel something, to share her suffering was so, so sad. I legit cried with “Why the lottery?” “Because that’s what it felt like… when someone finally noticed, when someone finally seemed to care… like winning the lottery” (and wow, her VA is SO GOOD). It really showed how a badly handled depression, how loneliness and not being able to get through difficult events can destroy a person. And I don’t remember seeing it as well done as this.
I just really love Nika for, after everything, wanting to help Michael and it being what moved her to talk to Louisa. I really hope Nika will get the care she deserves from now on, and manage to get better. (and get a lot of hugs in the process)
