drive or get shot

4

This is my lovely dog May although she’s better known as Meebles! I got her from the pound when I first moved out and we’ve been best friends ever since. She loves going driving (as long as she gets shot gun) and is the greatest adventurer that I ever could have hoped for 💞

Drive By

Jax x Reader where the reader gets shot but Jax has to leave her.

As you’re talking to Gemma, you look around the room, a content smile on your lips. Everyone in the clubhouse makes up part of your family, and you couldn’t be happier to be part of such a wonderful, yet slightly psychotic, group of people. You wouldn’t change them for the world.

“I’m really glad he’s got you, sweetheart. There’s nobody else I’d rather have as my future daughter in law.” Gemma says, her hand rubbing your arm lovingly. Before you can respond, glass smashing fills your ears, loud continuous bangs adding to the sound.

“Everybody down!” Chibs roars, the people in the clubhouse dropping like flies, trying to find cover. Gemma pulls you down, your body paralysed with shock as the bullets continue to smash through the walls, eyes searching to find your boyfriend, wanting to know he’s okay.

You spot Jax crouched on the floor, his brows knitted in worry as his eyes find yours. He shakes out of Chibs’ grasp, swiftly yet skillfully making his way over to you, sheltering your body with his own as you grip his shirt, the warmth and scent of him calming you slightly.

After what feels like forever, the bullets stop, motorcycles revving as the shooters leave the lot, the sound getting further and further away before it eventually disappears from your hearing.

“Are you okay?” Jax asks, his hands cradling his face as he watches you with concern. You nod your head shakily, forcing a small smile, your body revving with adrenaline.

“Jax, her leg.” You frown in confusion as Gemma speaks, you and Jax both turning your attention to your leg, blood seeping through your jeans. The adrenaline wears off as you begin to feel your injury, your lower leg throbbing painfully.

“Jesus christ.” Jax pulls his knife from its case hanging from his waist, carefully cutting your jeans, his hands ripping the denim until your leg is freed. Without the barrier, blood begins to pour out of the bullet hole below your knee, your eyes scrunching closed as white hot pain floods through your whole body.

“Jackie boy,” You force yourself to open your eyes, your sight misty with tears as Chibs stands over Jax’s shoulder, the blonde haired biker completely focused on you. “Cops will be here, soon. Jarry said they’re gonna cuff us if there’s anymore shit this week.”

Gemma squeezes your hand reassuringly, your forehead sweating as you try to ignore the pulsing agony, Jax looking completely torn. “I can’t just leave her, Chibs. She’s been fucking shot!”

“Yes, you can.” you groan, pushing yourself to sit up properly. Jax shakes his head defiantly, but you speak before he get his words out. “You’ve gotta go, babe.”

“She’s right, darlin’. I’ll look after her, get her to St Thomas.” Gemma adds, knowing that no matter how much Jax wants to stay with you, he’s no good to anybody locked up. Jax looks between the three of you, his jaw locked in anger.

“Go, I’ll be fine.” Willing yourself not to cry, you try to adjust your leg, biting your lip so hard you can taste the blood. Sirens begin to sound in the distance, the other members coming to stand by Jackson, urgency on their faces.

“Fuck.” Jax curses, Gemma leaving your side to move to Jax’s position, fatigue beginning to slip over you, your head dizzy from the blood loss. “Look after her, mom.”

You rest your head on the wall behind you, closing your eyes yet trying to stay conscious. A pair of lips kiss your head, Jax’s aftershave filling your nostrils. You try to smile, forcing your eyes to open as you look up at your old man. “Be careful.”

“Don’t worry about me. I’ll come and see you as soon as I can.” he responds, stroking your cheek protectively. You nod, a tired smile on your lips as you do so.

You don’t realise that you’ve passed out until you come to in a hospital room, the smell of bleach almost burning your nose. You move your head to the side, the chair next to your temporary bed vacant, though voices can be heard outside the room.

You try to ignore the needle in your hand, the sight making your stomach turn as you shift your legs, a hiss leaving your lips as you do so. Fucking bullet.

The door opens, a sigh of relief leaving you at the sight of your boyfriend, the concern in his eyes unable to be missed. A gentle smile plays on his lips as he shuts the door behind him.

“Everything okay?” you ask, your voice slightly croaky as you talk. He nods in confirmation, his feet moving him over to your bedside as he leans down to kiss you, his fingertips moving your hair out of your face.

“M'sorry.” he says once he pulls away, sitting on the edge of your bed, your hand being held in his as he strokes your skin soothingly. You shush him, shaking your head, just happy he’s safe and well.“We dealt with the problem.”

“I’m sure you did.” you respond cheekily, squeezing his hand. He smirks, bringing your fingertips up to his mouth and kissing them individually. “How long was I out?”

“Couple hours. You lost a lot of blood, babe, but doc said you can come home tonight as long as you promise to rest.” You roll your eyes, the sound of lying in bed and doing nothing completely unappealing to you, especially since you know Jax won’t be home with you.

“So, no sex?” Jax chuckles, shaking his head at your antics. He runs his tongue across his lower lip, and you can just tell he’s thinking about the night before, the two of you completely tangled in one another as you reached sweet bliss over and over.

“I’m sure we can figure something out if you’re feeling needy, darlin’.” he says, cradling your face between his hands as he watches you, nothing but love in his eyes.

“I’m always needy for you, Teller.”

A/N - Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, thank you for your amazing support even through my mini break, it means the world. This was a bit of a random idea lol but hope you enjoyed! Xx

I was watching Mr. and Mrs. Smith earlier today and I was like “Haha isn’t that Bucky and Steve WAITAMINUTE. I can make this stuckony.”

So there’s Steve, who works for SHIELD. There’s Bucky, who works for the CIA. And then there’s Tony, who’s a contractor for the government but still CEO of Stark Industries. (Honestly when will he not be. I am a creature of habit.) The CIA and SHIELD discover that they’re all together, and decide well, that’s not good, they could share secrets. So let’s make them kill each other!  (Let’s assume there’s still HYDRA in SHIELD for this because I don’t believe Fury or Coulson permitted this.)

And for added pain (and to keep Tony under their thumb) they go to Tony and say “hypothetically if we each had an agent married to each other how would you fix this?” And Tony laughs and says “I don’t know, kill them both?” (He thinks it very clear that this is a joke because he is a contractor and his opinions on weaponry and defense are the only things that matter.)

Well, lo and behold, suddenly Steve and Bucky are sent to take each other out and they are shocked (and hurt!) to find out all the lies. Steve isn’t an art teacher. Bucky’s not a history professor. “Do you even love Tony, or was that a lie, too?!” they snarl at each other, and get into a huge fist fight in the penthouse, destroying everything.

And then Tony gets home early and finds Bucky has a knife to Steve’s throat, and Steve has a gun pressed to Bucky’s gut, and his home is a mess. “…Why?” he asks tiredly. “Oh my God I just had a hellish day of meetings and now this. Did one of you eat the last of the other’s ice-cream?”

“…I don’t even like rum raisin,” Steve says, and Bucky turns and just yells in his face in anger.

(Tony has no idea what’s going on and he is suddenly Frightened because he’s never seen them like this. Against literally anyone else’s better judgement, he walks up to them and just takes the weapons from their hands. And Steve and Bucky let him, because he is their precious civilian husband, and also threatening each other has gotten awkward now that they have an audience who is clearly not impressed.)

Of course, Tony clearing the chamber and unloading the gun expertly is the hottest thing ever and Steve and Bucky can at least agree on that. After some loud (and honestly kinda violent) life-affirming sex (for Bucky and Steve anyway), Tony makes them spill what’s happening. Tony, incensed, does some discrete hacking and realizes in horror that if anything gets out about it, the CIA and SHIELD are going to throw it back on him, even though it was clearly a fucking joke.

Now, Steve and Bucky are kind of pissed at each other for all the lies, but Tony has told them the truth from the get-go (”You’re not teachers?” Tony asks, betrayed, and they start to feel bad but then– “So the hot-for-teacher role play did nothing for you?” The noises they make are terrible but Tony is so earnestly afraid that they were just putting up with it that they rush to assure him that the role plays were definitely enjoyed on their ends. Sorry. I had to get some more humor in here.)

But now the forty-eight hours Steve and Bucky were given to kill each other are up and Natasha, Steve’s coworker (”I thought she was your PE teacher coworker!” Tony wails.) calls and tells him that SHIELD is about to head out and finish the job for him. Bucky gets a call from Clint (”He’s not just a homeless guy you help out?!” “I never said he was homeless, Tony, you just assumed he was because he’s a slob.”) saying the same thing, and also they’re going to consider Tony collateral damage. Steve and Bucky are furious, because Tony is innocent. “NOT THAT WAY!” they both shout when Tony opens his mouth to make a smart remark about his ‘innocence.’

Cue the car chase in one of Tony’s suped up cars. (”My baby,” he whimpers every time the car is dented and shot at.) At one point his driving gets so… creative, that Steve is almost thrown from the car and the only thing keeping him from being thrown was Bucky’s hand wrapped his wrist. For a terrifying few seconds, he was in midair. (But hey it caused one of their pursuers to flip so no harm no foul.) Bucky’s prepared to tease him mercilessly but then Tony blurts out, “Oh, wait, does being married before count as a secret?” And Steve and Bucky nearly foam at the mouth because whowhyhow?! “It was a Vegas wedding and we got it annulled when we were sober.” “What’s her name?” Steve hisses. “And her social security number?” Bucky adds. “First of all I can’t even remember my own social, and second you’re not going to kill her because it was Pepper and we were celebrating the great reception of the first StarkPhone.” The idea of trying to kill Pepper is daunting so they settle for grumbling mulishly to each other about it.

I’m not sure what happens next. Maybe they expose all the HYDRA agents in SHIELD, or Fury and Coulson finally catch wind of what’s going on and put a stop to it (but not before a huge shootout because I’m a sucker for those.) All I know is that I want them to end up at a meeting with the marriage counselor and Tony’s complaining about how Steve and Bucky don’t know how to communicate with each other. “Yeah, I really wanted to kill him recently,” Steve jokes. “But I just couldn’t pull the trigger.” “Ha. Haha,” Bucky says. “And I just couldn’t sink the knife into his chest.”

The marriage counselor (probably Bruce tbh the poor guy) says “But hey, you couldn’t do it. That’s good. What about you, Tony?”

“I communicate perfectly!” Tony sputters indignantly.

“Honestly he may communicate too well,” Steve and Bucky admit.

The marriage counselor just makes some interested noises because he isn’t sure what to say. (They eventually work things out though.)

That night, Nari called to explain how pissed off Jay was.

“Y/N, he’s totally pissed, do you know what he said? Jesus. He said you’re a bitch for only using him as your boy toy and then ignoring him. Did you fuck him and not tell me!?” She gasped.

“Oh my god no! I almost did though…at your party.”

She yelped. “Almost!?”

“He didn’t want to…Nari, he outright rejected me, and when I invited him over last week, it was clear that he would never step into my house.”

“He’s the bitch! You gave him two shots and he’s that stupid?” Nari growled.

“It was only one shot and I was drunk so it’s no big deal, it’s better this way anyhow.” You concluded.

“I always knew you had a huge crush on him.” She stated.

“Okay first, no I didn’t. He was just a really hot friend that I started to like a little too much. Second, I think it’s better if I stay away from him.” You explained.

“That’s your choice I guess, but he’s really pissed. He’s even talking about you in school.” Nari said.

“If I hear him myself, I’ll tell Yoongi to kill him.”

“Speaking of Yoongi, I saw the way he was dragging you out the club the other day. It was a bit inappropriate for an employee…Is he your new boy toy?” She squealed annoyingly.

“He was just pretending to be my date, some old creep was trying to hit on me.” You explained.

She sighed. “I was hoping for something more juicy.”

“Keep dreaming.”

rebel w/out a cause

hi guys. So, I watched Rebel Without a Cause a week or so ago, and I definitely have some stuff to say. (Unpopular opinion, I liked the movie! PLEASE DON’T THROW THINGS!!) Anyway, this movie hits many relevant arguments, but the overarcing theme or topic of the movie that got me thinking the most was the quote right before the chickie fight, when Buzz tells Jim he actually does like him, and Jim’s like, “yo, why are we doing this then?” and Buzz says “hey, you gotta do something, right?” When humans become teens for the first time, it is also the first time we face real, adult problems and must confront them. What this quote, or this theme of the movie is saying plays right to the title. A “rebel without a cause” is someone who isn’t satisfied with society, but doesnt have a specific aim to fight for, so they just “do something.” and if that something is drive a stolen car off of a cliff, so be it. Teens don’t value destruction, they value change - they just don’t know how to go about the process. Teenagers value action without thinking about consequences, so when conflict arises, they retreat to the “I’m just a kid” line. This differs from characters who live in fear, such as the adults in the movie, who clearly value minding consequences than anything else. Both Jim’s mother and father were fearful in their own ways, because they valued the “what if” scenerio. Mom was mortified of Jim acting out, constently demanding they move city to city. Dad was fearful of Jim in a different way, clearly caring about his well being, but at the same time, would not stand up to his wife for him. (I feel like the dad was a super complex character, but overall he valued consequences much higher than change.) This movie in particular was a very different style of movie than I’m used to, (from 1956) simply because of the difference in the portrayal of teens. I feel as if teens today react very internal when conflict arises, we are constantly keeping baggage behind closed doors, where teens in these movies are VERY brash and bold, and jump the gun…or drive off of a cliff…or try to shoot someone until they get shot down, and James Dean comes screaming “I GOT THE BULLETS!!” and everything is awkward…but anyways. I think this movie is to show both adults and teens, but mostly adults, that the other genoration’s problems they face are very real and very valid, even if our values are different. also i found a gif of James Dean saying I GOT THE BULLETS, so there you go.

A very happy belated birthday to the amazing @superirishbreakfasttea! Tbh,  I wanted to write like 10k of this but had to restrain myself….

“Really?” Raina asks with a perfectly arched eyebrow. “You’re going to pick that one?”

“You told me I could pick whoever I wanted,” Daisy replies stubbornly, staring at the glossy headshots spread across the table.  It’s her fake boyfriend, after all. If she’s going to spend the next few months being photographed getting coffee and posing on the red carpet with someone, she should at least get to choose who it is.

“Robbie Reyes?  Really?  You think that the tabloids are going to react well to America’s sweetheart dating the same guy who once punched James Hellfire in the face at an afterparty?” Raina counters.  

“Hellfire is an asshole,” Bobbi interjects. “And everyone who was at that party says that Reyes didn’t throw the first punch.”

Daisy gives her a grateful look.  She hired Bobbi as her manager the minute she turned eighteen and the other woman’s never steered her wrong.  Bobbi’s the one who landed her a supporting role in last year’s  Best Picture and the lead in last summer’s biggest comedy and Raina may be the reason she’s been appearing on more and more magazine covers lately, but Bobbi hired Raina as her publicist in the first place.

“You put him on the list,” Daisy tells Raina. “Therefore, I get to pick him if I want to.  And I do.”

And that’s it.  Robbie Reyes, action star and former street racer, is now her latest celebrity boyfriend.

Masterlist

Part One


Pietro’s mind could not wrap around the fact that you weren’t bothered by him. He was used to people falling for him instantly, as he flirts his way through life. He could have anyone he wanted; it wasn’t hard for him to get someone, but of course; he chose the one person that was unaffected by his personality.

However, it did get to his head. Being so obsessed with you and everything about you, it distracted him from what he really needed to be focusing on. You and Pietro worked well together as if something were to happen that needed to be stopped quickly, you could slow time and Pietro would run to whoever needed it. Sure, you could have done it, but moving while your stalling time uses a lot of energy you don’t normally have. So, it was nice to have the speedster on your side.

Ever since you joined the Avengers, it was hard for anyone to ever win. That was, until this fight where Pietro didn’t listen to you and flirted the whole time. Frankly, it was driving you crazy that he wouldn’t listen. Typically, you would get a good shot at the villain and slow the time for Pietro to knock out, but he wasn’t listening.

“Pietro! Listen to me!” You shouted through the comms as you fought off enemies. Sure, you could have stopped everything and just pushed them all over, but it doesn’t work like that. You may be powerful, but you also know how much energy slowing and stopping time takes. It could use all of your energy up to get rid of the smaller threats, and it wasn’t worth risking your shot at their leader just to get rid of a few pesky rats.

anonymous asked:

How do you feel about black people who support the ghetto stereotype? Where I live, that stereotype is supported quiet often. They don't have jobs, deal and do drugs, have children with multiple people out of wedlock, yet hardly unable to support themselves. It isn't all black people. There are a lot of white, and other ethnicities, but it's majority the black community. How do you feel about black people who put black people up to that stereotype?

This question makes me angry for a lot of reasons so I will try to answer it as calmly as possible. Have you ever lived in a black community? I have. At the corner of my childhood street, where my siblings and I rode our bikes, there was a popular drug spot that cars would drive past. My siblings and I saw a man get shot from our bedroom window in a gang related situation. Yes, a lot of black people live in poverty stricken areas, mostly because nicer options were not afforded to them, higher education was not made available to them. And as a result,better paying jobs are not an option. So of course it is easy to sit back and judge these people having “multiple babies out of wedlock” or selling drugs, but did you ever stop to think they are doing this because this is all they know? Because this is what society keeps telling them that’s all they are expected to become? Have you ever gone to school in a black community? I have. The education system is so poor my parents fought to get us into  “white” school districts so we could get a better education.  I could have ended up the same way if my parents did not move us when they could and continue to instill in us no matter what the world says that we are important and that our lives do matter. So what do I think about black people who fit the stereotype? I think they are my people. And they deserve a chance just like anyone else!

I posted this over on @natgeotravel first, so figured I’d finally post it here too! I never could have imagined such an incredible place with snow covered trees, just a short drive outside of Seattle, Washington in my drive up to Alaska. It provided a perfect opportunity to get some aerial shots I have always wanted. Thanks @lisabao, @andinguyen08 and @teeter_town for showing me around and being perfect models! Music: @jteveringham

UPDATED: PAST RELATIONSHIP AU
“You know my heart - so tell me honestly, did you ever really want this?
So I’ll sing this song for every word that comes out wrong
But I’ll be okay – is that what you want me to say?”
In the end, it’s neither the fame or the pressure, nor Management or the constant hiding and denying that tears them apart. Or maybe it’s a sum of all and so much more on top.
In the end, it’s Harry.
When Harry leaves the band - leaves Louis - to pursue his dreams of a solo career, he breaks much more than just One Direction.
It’s a gamble and a new start for each of the boys but while Harry walked away smiling, finally having got everything he apparently dreamt of, Louis is left to pick the pieces up.
Some hearts don’t break even, some are simply shattered. So can you really learn to un-love someone?You auditioned without me,” Louis says, his voice disbelieving. “How the fuck can you stand there and hurl all this shit at me when you literally left me behind to go audition for the show we’d been dreaming of being on together?”
“What was I supposed to do, Louis? You refused to audition with me unless we were honest about being a couple. I knew we never would have made it past the first auditions. You left me no other choice; it was either audition alone or not audition at all.“
Louis feels his own eyes start to fill with tears. “You chose a fucking reality show over our relationship. If you still don’t see that you made the wrong choice than I don’t think there’s any reason for me to waste another second here.”
A Famous/Non-Famous turned Famous/Famous AU where Harry makes the biggest mistake of his life and Louis’ left to pick up the pieces.

Louis remembers clearly the night everything fell apart.
There are moments in life you just can’t forget. For him, there are some that just will never leave his mind: singing Torn, his first Award Ceremony, What Makes You Beautiful on the radio for the first time, bus 1 with Zayn, recording Fireproof with Liam and the sound of Harry’s voice when he told Louis that he loved him, but they were done.
[OR: the one in which my mind goes to a really dark place thanks to this ridiculous reality we’re living right now and Louis cheats on Harry and gets a girl pregnant]

Harry’s been completely blindsided, is the thing. Like a car without headlights crashing into him. It’s not that he thought he’d never see Louis again in his life. It’s just this. He wasn’t ready for this.
au. louis’ in an obscure band. harry’s an international popstar. their paths aren’t meant to cross, not like this, but when louis’ band signs on as harry’s opening act, both harry and louis are forced to confront the open wounds of their shared past.Harry steadies his jaw. “What do you want from me?”
Louis’ bottom lip wobbles. “I’m not gay.”
“Are you trying to convince me, or yourself?”
And at that, Louis seems to completely lose his shit. He rushes towards Harry, banging his fists on Harry’s collarbones in a frenzy, and begins yelling– “I hate you! I hate you! I fucking hate you so much!”
Tears are rushing down his cheeks, and then he’s shoving Harry away, drunk out of his ass, causing Harry to stumble back a bit. Louis then begins to clutch at himself, fisting his own clothes to his chest, dribble falling from his mouth, his arms shaky and his back hunched.
“Fuckfuckfuckufkcufkc!” He spits, face contorted, hands trembling. “I hate you!”
“No, you don’t.” Harry steps forward, face concerned. “You don’t hate me.”
-
An epic love story in which Harry is too in love for his own good, Louis is in denial of his sexuality, and they write songs instead of actually talking to each other.Louis drives a taxi. He hasn’t seen Harry in eight years when they have a chance meeting.
A lot has changed in that time. But not everything.The one where Louis has spent years getting over his ex, Harry Styles, and was almost successful. That is until Harry is elected as an MP, and Louis is given the task of getting him to support an Act of Parliament.
Through tears and arguments and a heavy dose of LGBTQ+ politics, their lives finally line up. Will Louis be able to forgive? Will they still want the same thing? It’s difficult to let go of five years of hurt, but even more difficult to be close to the love of your life and let them walk away again.At the age of twenty, Harry deals with things expected to occur at his age: student loans, instant meals, electricity bills, and the constant, incessant presence of never ending coursework.
That, and the job of raising his six year old daughter and avoiding the charm of a young, successful, and very off-limits Louis Tomlinson.au. louis and harry are best mates that are only half aware that they’re also soulmates. alternatively, louis goes to university and harry travels the world, and they always manage to find their way back to each other.
takes place over nine years, in which they love and hurt, make mistakes and learn, and above all, grow.For three years, Harry has been running from his past. Now, he is moving to London and pledges to fulfil his only dream – making it big in the music industry. Not everyone has a place, though, and the competition is tough. As is his past catching up on him.
Louis is part of the biggest boy band of the world, and getting there had meant a lot of hard work, as well as sacrificing parts of his heart and soul. He’s still happy. Maybe not as happy as he could be, but who is he to complain?
Featuring Perrie as Harry’s adorable flatmate, Niall as his manager, and Liam and Zayn as Louis’ bandmates.“I’m just—” (Harry hiccups) “there’s a lot here.”
And – yeah. There are oceans between them and mountain ranges surrounding them and Louis can feel tectonic plates shifting beneath his unsteady feet, pulling them further and further apart by the heartbeat. There are countries of distance, but there are pages and maps and textbooks of shared histories, moments documented and carefully filed away and Louis can’t remember thinking complete thoughts before he thought of Harry.
Six years since they’ve last seen one another, Louis bumps (literally) into Harry on the street on his way to work. In the hours following, they relearn one another and their past as they wander the streets and relive a few of their most significant memories together. Topics covered: what it means to grow up, how to be a real functioning adult in the world, how to stop lying, gravity in the context of black holes, and the reimagining of inevitability.

the one where Louis and Harry have a complicated past, Louis is getting married to someone that’s not Harry, and the universe has decided to have a laugh and make Harry the wedding planner.

Harry’s an alcoholic and Louis is a bartender. The first time they meet isn’t the first time they’ve met.Harry is a famous pop-star touring all around the world except England because London is where Louis is. And Louis keeps his eyes on the ground while walking because a familiar face stares at him from billboards, reminding him of what he’s lost and Harry’s someone he doesn’t want to think about. They hate each other because of the past they share but no one can keep running forever.
Featuring Liam and Niall as the best bandmates ever and Zayn as the best mate in the world who makes Louis eat plants.Louis loses everything. Harry’s still there.He’s playing football at one of the top universities in England and he should love everything about his life right now, but instead he’s moving backwards. How does your past fit into your present? Louis is still figuring it out.
  • Core ‘ngrato (49k, one shot)
    It’s been over a year since Louis broke up with Harry and Harry still believes in forever. And maybe the world does, too.
Moffat, Appleyards, and Bookends

Or, No Loose Ends In This Binch


For starters I want to give credit to @miadifferent for digging up some of this info from Doctor Who and connecting it Sherlock in her post and also giving me the idea in the first place. I don’t watch Doctor Who so I was completely reliant on it, (also feel free to correct me if need be) and I’ll be referencing that meta to relate it to the speculated 4th episode and Apple Tree Yard. 


Moffat loves those fucking apples, he used them in Sherlock and in Who, and Mark likes clowns what can I tell ya. Mark also thinks, “Everyone always gives up after three,” taking this line seriously, three, isn’t the end. For the sake of this meta, it’s the start. It’s four that goes beyond expectations and gives a satisfying balance or symmetry which Moffat evidently likes and Mark hates loose ends.

In The Sign of Three, we get a lot of imagery that is now starting to come back into play, particularly four: magpies (associated with moriarty), clowns, water/fish, and Apples (this goes hand-in-hand with 207/702). 

The opening scene is of Lestrade (us/audience) trying to catch the waters gang robbers (Mofftiss/the lie), wearing Clown masks, “In The Act,” which has sexual connotations. Clowns have deceptive symbolism surrounding them. We’re trying to catch them lying about the sexual content/subtext/acts. (The water=emotions symbolism could also add a layer to that.) Guess what we’re working with:

This is the image you get when you click on the link to the BBC page when you’re looking at the Youtube trailer. They moved the page, but didn’t change the link and as I’m typing this it’s still the “wrong” one. The show is a Lie, covering up the gay sexual and romantic content with a Straight Mask (more on this later). They’re going to “hack in” to this show and the news after it (for the groundbreaking news) just like the waters gang got put all over the newspapers for hacking into the bank:

Next of importance is The Mayfly Man. The idea of the mayfly man assumes a false identity to go out with different women every night, and Sherlock thinks this is because he is married, because this is what he thinks John was doing (he just didn’t realize he made that deduction until later), because John is the real mayfly man who wants to make a move on Sherlock before getting married, as Sherlock eventually deduces.

I think ATY could still be a real show but they’re placing it strategically a week earlier or you know it’s fake since they’ve only just started promotion which is fishy. I remember seeing promotion for Victoria months ago and there was a lot of it. This show? Not as much. But either way.

Getting to the Appleyard references, Apples have been used already as imagery for temptation and sexuality, as they’re associated with Moriarty and Sherlock in TRF. So this is an important imagery in this show by itself.

Next and most important, Moffat has already been shown to use certain words/cues to signify the beginning and closing of a romantic arc, in Doctor Who. Those cues are Apple/Appleyard paired with 207/702 on doors, as bookended number codes. I don’t know why these numbers for sure exactly, but they mirror well which is what we’re going for. Personally, since Apples/garden of eden imagery and seven rhymes with heaven, I like to think he’s referencing the door 2 (h)eaven or paradise. 

In his episode “Jekyll” he has a self-contained arc I believe, where the characters are at the end of it but they’re referencing the beginning to make a conclusion, thus coming full circle. The character is referencing back to their honeymoon, proving he knows where they had it, “The Appleyard. The Appleyard room 702″

Next, is Amy Pond’s arc starting with “The Beast Below,” where the Doctor tells her, “Deck 207, Apple Sesame block.” The end of Amy’s arc is “The Angels Take Manhattan” where there is a very pointed shot of a door on which you can clearly see the numbers 702, the inversion of the first reference. 

Then, apparently, the episode ends with them dying after having a long and happy marriage. 

I hope that image looks familiar to you, because we saw and heard another very similar reference in TSoT. Major Sholto stays in Room 207. We hear Mary running up the stairs shouting the number out, “207!” Then we can clearly see it on the door: 

CAM wishes Mary good wishes in this episode. He knows her secrets. In the next episode, HLV, we go to the Appledoor vaults, which I will remind you, is where this media/newspaper mogul hides secrets.

In The Six Thatchers we see all this imagery starting to come back. In the opening scenes of TST we helpfully get reminded of the Appledoor vaults in CAM’s head where he is then shot and killed. But they have to protect that secret from getting out, so they edit the footage to show whatever they want to the public. Also, coincidentally or not Apple Tree Yard played their trailer either right before TST or TLD, I’m afraid I can’t remember definitively. So either it helped bookend the series, or it helped the viewer recall what we saw with John in TST but with a het lens.

We’ve already gotten the Big Ben appearance in TEH, and then in TST John drives in the cab and we get a shot of Big Ben or Elizabeth Tower, though I couldn’t get a decent screenshot of that. We do get this helpful image in ATY:

Mycroft/Mark helpfully had Elizabeth tower scrawled onto his notepad as well, which we know is also a Sherlock Bolt Hole. There are also very obvious similarities in shots between Yvonne Carmichael on the bus and John on the bus in TST, right before they’re both about to cheat. She also strangely uses the phrase “civilized” which just sounds so much like John the Soldier forcing himself to be the civilian, to me. 

In flashbacks we then get the often seen one now:

which features all the imagery from TSoT and HLV, the magpies, clowns, water/fish, and the apple tree. These are our reminder cues. This shot also takes place during the reveal of John cheating which further drives the connection between ATY and TST, because the temptation to cheat is there and the clowns are a reminder of deceit, plus I count 4 clowns. 

Then in TFP we get quite the scary clown chasing down Mycroft (Mark) because he is a liar-liar, which Sherlock (us) says, “You’re lying!” to Mycroft’s (Mark’s) face.

I know that there are arguments that say this is a real show but I wouldn’t be inclined to believe them. Clowns are a part of circuses right? This brings me all the way back to TBB with the circus show covering up the doings of an underground gang of international conspirators *ahem* I mean smugglers.

They’re trying to hide their lies with the truth and a very good cover up, while hacking in and stealing the audience’s belief into our 4.04, by pulling them into a heterosexual romance that mirrors the one we hope to see, caught In The Act.

This Apple Tree Yard would bring narrative symmetry as Moffat has shown to like to do like with The Appleyard room. I just hope we can find 702 now, they’ve been waiting since The Sign of Three for it to be Four already! This symmetry and bookending is what, among all the other evidences, mirroring and arguments, had started to convince me. Here’s to Once More Unto the Breach.

Tagging some known interested parties below, I hope I didn’t disappoint

That pole has been bothering me, so I thought I’d take a drive.   The paps were no surprise that day. Can’t get a good shot through a solid sign, so it has to be removed.  They were there on the road right next to the church yard.

Second Night Shoot

Heres some cool behind the scenes footage Daniel got of us last night. As you can see Gianni living sketchy on the bonnet to get a driving shot of Liam and I. 

I would say last nights shoot was far more productive than our Monday night shoot. We managed to get all our night time footage besides the final scene complete. We still need to look through what we got, as we may have to re shoot some sections. However we managed to get enough footage more than we need so we should be alright.

Last night in terms of footage was great, but there are a few things that we probably could have planned more for for instance Daniels costume is black basically. Very hard to see when its dark I must say. Also we forgot to give Daniel his the flowers he buys before he is redirected ti his kidnapping this meant we had to re shoot some parts. This really just comes down to planning I think. if we were to do it again I think we would need to sit down and plan out our shoot chronologically. this would make sure we don’t miss any important parts. But in saying this we got he job done even though if our methods weren’t the most efficient.

So far we have managed to stick to our filming schedule and have planned to get ahead tonight filming our final harvesting scene. Un fortunately the location we are filming in ( a Mt eden carpark ) isn’t free until quite late tonight as. However thats fine because Gianni can’t get there till later anyway, this gives Liam Daniel and I a bit of time to get there and set up early so we can efficiently manage our time.

anonymous asked:

"It was a regular bullet that blew out a regular windshield." It’s funny that Malia was so cold when this is so similar to what supposedly happened to her family that she allegedly loved oh so much. I mean, last season she couldn’t even get behind the wheel of a car without freaking the fuck out, but this season, hey, dead is dead. // Holy shit. She gets triggered by driving, but isn't triggered by a car shot to bits. I guess her PTSD plot really is over, wow. These damn writers suck so much

That PTSD plot never made sense in the first place lmao. Like, girl was in the backseat when that shit happened and driving somehow makes her have PTSD flashbacks? But she was always a-okay in the backseat of a car? 

That plot literally only existed as an excuse to advertise that stupid fucking Toyota truck that they never even explained how  or where she got it from (and then she gets a new car like 10 episode later lmao).
