ensnares

anonymous asked:

Mindscape anon again. My headcanon is that both sciency place and wheat field were dreams if not outright created, then heavily influenced by Bill. In first case he wanted to gain Ford's trust, so he filled the dream with things Ford might find appealing. In second case he wanted to mock Ford, so he filled the dream with painful reminders of Ford's mistakes and unfulfilled dreams, i.e. portal, swingset and Stan-o-War.

That’s an interesting idea. Bill is like a spider, laying out his web to ensnare his prey, with things that may entice them. Ford’s was the promise of knowledge and the secrets of the universe to change the world.  And Ford didn’t realize he was trapped in the web until it was too late. And Bill taunting Ford later on is painful to consider, almost as if showing him that everything he worked for was just stripped away, and he was powerless to do anything to stop Bill.

“Y/N. Y/N!”

Dean’s clammy hand latched onto yours at the sound of the plane engines firing. You winced, your hand ensnared in his iron grip. 

“Dean, they’re just getting ready. We aren’t even moving yet.”

His eyes were squeezed shut. He breathed out, for the thousandth time, “Why didn’t we just drive there?”

You repeated, “We’re on a time constraint, Dean. This was the only way to get there in time.”

His face was beginning to gray. He bent forward and huffed, “I think I’m going to be sick.”

You handed him one of the dozen puke bags you had asked the flight attendant for. As she passed you again, eyeing Dean, she set a ginger ale and snack bag of crackers on the empty seat next to you. You gave her a nod of thanks.

Sam spun around from the seat in front of you, taking off his headphones. “How’s it going back here?”

You mouthed, “You owe me big time.” He gave you a piteous smile, patted Dean on the back, then turned back to the front.

You offered the ginger ale to Dean, but he swatted your hand away. “If I’m going to get through this, I’m going to need something a lot stronger than a friggin’ ginger ale.”

You grit your teeth. "Listen, Dean. I get you have anxiety about this and trust me when I say that I would love to be on the road right now versus sitting here. However, we had no choice. Now, the only thing worse than dealing with you like this is dealing with you drunk. So, you are going to drink this ginger ale, eat all of these crackers, and breathe. Understand?”

He glanced at you, then after a moment, snatched the ginger ale out of your hand. “Fine.”

You smirked at your friend. “I’ll even let you pick the movie if you behave like a good little boy.”

“Shut up.”

Could The Three Garridebs take place in a maze?

I always find the scene where Lady Carmichael frantically chases after Eustace so chilling… it got me wondering about The Three Garridebs.

Imagine if it also takes place in a maze. Towering hedges of intimidation, branches ensnared in fog. Mary has finally truly taken off her mask: she has revealed herself as the True Villain. John and Sherlock tear after her but, in the confusion, they are separated.

“John? John! Where-”

We just hear Sherlock’s ragged breaths as he runs through the maze- he trips, narrowly avoids falling. He reaches a dead end, and cries out in frustration. Doubles back. He is faced with two paths, a massive call-back to John facing the two identical buildings of Roland-Kerr collage in A Study in Pink.

Left or right?

Cut to John in another part of the maze. His steps are slow, and calm. He hears a twig snap behind him. He turns, and there is Mary, panting with exertion, taking aim with her gun.

She tuts, and shakes her head in exasperation. “Oh, not you.”

John grits his teeth. Quick as a flash, he also draws his gun. “Yes,” he says simply. And then, his voice lowers, a grim promise. “You don’t touch him. You don’t get to hurt him. Not this time.”

Mary raises her eyebrows. A challenge.

Cut back to a lost and increasingly panicked Sherlock. He knows he has taken the wrong path, but it can’t be too late, it can’t-

The crack of a gunshot echoes all around. Sherlock stops in his tracks. This is the most frightened we have ever seen him.

“Oh, God,” he breathes. “John!”

Cut back to John and Mary. John is expertly avoiding Mary’s bullets, ducking and diving. He fires at Mary, and narrowly misses. Sherlock finally appears, and John turns to him in a grave moment of distraction:

“Sherlock!”

Crack. The bullet hits John in the knee, and he gasps, bending down to clutch his knee.

Sherlock moves towards him: “John!”

But, John stops him with a commanding outstretched hand. “No, I’m fine, it’s just a scratch.” And then, urgently: “Please, Sherlock, you have to get out-”

Close up on Mary, the picture of fury. She aims one final time, her eyes fixed like a hawk on Sherlock. “You!”

Sherlock stumbles back as the shot is taken, an instant too late to save himself. But, with a groan of effort, John leaps forward, throwing Sherlock to the ground and-

It is over. Sherlock lies on the ground, disorientated, and looks up. Mary has already flown. Sherlock starts to smile out of sheer relief.

“John,” he says, the warmth finally back in his voice, “John, that was-”

A horrible gasping, choking noise. Sherlock’s smile falters, then falls completely. He abruptly gets to his feet, a little shaky. “John? What-”

And Sherlock freezes at the sight before him: John, outstretched in the dirt, blood pooling from his chest.

“No,” Sherlock says. The word is flat and emotionless. Denial. Numb. “No.”

He collapses in front of John. John’s eyes flicker open. His voice is strained with pain. “I’m…sorry, Sher…” he whispers. “She-she got away.”

Sherlock’s lips tremble. His eyes fill with tears. “N-no, John, don’t be-that’s-”

John laughs a little. “Sorry. D-didn’t want it t-to be like this.”

Sherlock shakes his head, and his tears start to fall. “No, ssh,” he whispers. His hand reaches out and cups John’s cheek, instinctive and tender. “Don’t- John, please don’t talk like that, you’re going to be…”

But, Sherlock’s voice dies as the gravity of the situation overwhelms him. John laughs again. He leans into Sherlock’s touch, reaches up, and covers Sherlock’s hand with his own.

“It was my turn,” he says.

John’s eyes roll back grotesquely and close, and that is when the dam finally breaks. “No!” Sherlock shouts, and he’s shaking John, damn him, “No, no! This isn’t- this can’t-” He tries to take in a breath, and can only sob: “I didn’t-I never told you- we-we haven’t had enough time!”

Sherlock leans down and kisses John fiercely, a messy, desperate plea to let him live. “I-I want- I want more time.”

The maze only echoes and re-echoes with Sherlock’s cries.

My kingdom for slow build FinnRey in 8 and 9 though

Separated but always on each other’s minds-
The Bad Guys using their feelings for each other to ensnare them…

Kylo Ren revealing “The girl has strong feelings for the Traitor.  He is her weakness.  We can use him to lure Luke Skywalker.”

Kylo realizing how good and strong and pure Finn is.
How Rey rejected the Dark side and his teaching in part because of her love for Finn.
How Finn basically mirrors his own story but in complete reverse…

… and being eaten up by envy: desperate to characterize their strength and love as foolishness and weakness.

Finn and Rey saving each other’s lives and choosing each other–

A moment where they almost kiss- where the air is pregnant with anticipation, but they’re interrupted. 

I wanna see other characters having “Shipping it” moments…

Finn denying that he thinks of Rey as anything but a friend, and Chewie giving him a skeptical Wookie look/growl combo

Poe, who has become Finn’s closest bosom friend, putting his hands on Finn’s shoulders encouragingly and telling him  “You’ve gotta be honest in a relationship, buddy– tell her how you feel.”

Or Rey insisting she doesn’t think of Finn “like that” to BB8, who cocks its head and expresses disbelief clearly, beeping doubtfully at Rey, who shakes her head, 
“Well I don’t care WHAT you think, it’s none of your business-”

Leia talking to Rey from the heart:  
“I know it feels like it’s never the right time, but trust me, you’ll regret every moment you spent too proud to say how you felt.” 

Since AntiBug is basically Miss Fortune, that probably won’t be Marinette’s akuma form. So here’s another idea:

Spider/Puppet Akuma who’s name is Marionette. She can ensnare you in her strings and either make you a puppet or merely tie you up. However, all of her movements are jerky, just like a puppet, and there is a giant butterfly flying above her. Nearly invisible strings (like webbing) are attaching her to the butterfly. Instead of gaining a mask when Hawk Moth talks to her, instead the butterfly gives her direct orders.

Hogwarts Subjects [1/10]: Potions

“There will be no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations in this class. As such, I don’t expect many of you to appreciate the subtle science and exact art that is potion-making. However, for those select few who possess the predisposition, I can teach you how to bewitch the mind and ensnare the senses. I can tell you how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even put a stopper in death.”

Kiss Me

I know it sounds hasty.
But baby, The idea
Of having your lips pressed to mine
Sends shivers down my spine.
If you feel the desire to push me against the wall.
You have my permission.
Just don’t let me fall.
Wrap me in your arms.
Steal my breath.
Kiss me until there is nothing left.
And if I accidentally dig my nails in your back too deep.
You’re going to have to forgive me.
It’ll be our secret to keep.
The moment I ache for.
When can I get you alone?
I’m hoping we’ll both have new marks to be shown.
Come closer to me than ever before.
I promise I will return the favor.
And if I tangle my hands through your hair.
Just know it’s because you have my heart ensnared.
When you feel the urge to trail your lips over my skin.
Don’t resist, darling.
I’m yours to binge.

Brett Rickaby stars in “Tentacle eight,” John Chi’s excessive-tech thriller revolving round knowledge breaches and covert teams. By ANDY WEBSTER June 17, 2015

Sprawling and complex, John Chi’s labyrinthine conspiracy thriller “Tentacle eight” is nothing if not formidable (and in the wake of the Edward J. Snowden affair, considerably well timed). When Ray (Brett Rickaby), a Nationwide…
