faces are terrifying

Rack and Ruin

Donnie’s memories came back to him in stages and backwards. He remembered first being wheeled through a corridor with blinding white lights, people yelling unintelligible orders over him. Then there was a tube being shoved down his throat and fingers prodding all over his body. And then Bert’s sleeping face. Frank’s terrified eyes. Red’s impish grin. Driving to the desert. Screaming at Bert. God’s voice. 

Everything had seemed so loud before, like a cacophony of raging, screaming voices. But now it was quiet. The silence was eery and uncomfortable– like something in the air had died. His body hurt– his stomach especially. It felt like it had been torn open and put back together, torn open and put back together. Repeat, repeat, repeat. 

He opened his eyes and finally registered the sound of the heart monitor beeping next to him. He was alive. He was alive? How. How how how. He was so sure he’d died– He should have died a thousand times over from the start of the battle to the finish. He was dead, wasn’t he? He remembered the smooth, warm air and his brother’s uncharacteristically calm voice and the weight of the world lifting off his shoulders. 

Now he was in a cold, sterile room. Maybe he had died and this was Hell. The light seared his eyes until they were watering and it throbbed hard in his head. He looked at the IV next to him, wishing he had the strength to give himself more morphine. He just wanted to go back to sleep. Maybe forever. He wanted Bert. He wanted Frank. He wanted to make sure they were okay. His leg shifted, like he might force himself out of bed, but something caught with a clank at his ankle. 

He tried to sit up, but the pain and something cushiony around his wrists stopped him. He turned his head with difficulty, trying to find the source of his struggle. He yanked at the restraints around his wrists, then thrashed a little. One around each ankle and one around each wrist. He was trapped, and the thought made him panic a little more. Ultimately though, he knew there was nothing he could do about it. 

Frustrated tears welled in his eyes and slipped down his temples, a small whimper escaping his throat. What was going to happen to him now? He was so convinced he wasn’t going to escape the encounter alive and now everything was ruined

I finally thought of my own cute alien/human relationships thing and I wasn’t gonna post it but another one crossed my dash, so I am:

Aliens that don’t have to eat. Aliens that absorb their energy from light or heat or something and can’t go dark places or cold places or places without nutritious breathable gasses without technology to help them, but have never eaten. Aliens that are horrified that humans have to kill other beings and grind them up with their mouth parts and they don’t even use tools and oh gosh what even are teeth why do humans have exposed face bones that is TERRIFYING.

But also, aliens that eventually get to know the humans and realize most of them are usually reasonably good at not eating things that are obviously, actively sentient (though there are some disagreements on that front) and anyway they’re super friendly to creatures that can speak and they get very attached and fine, they can be friends with the humans even though they’re weird and scary. And then they’re like ‘I brought you a plant to crush in your mouth parts’ or 'I found this and it’s dead, are you hungry?’ Or 'you look dizzy do u need to eat my potted plant?’ And they are not very good at suggesting/providing food but gosh darnit they try and the humans think it’s adorable. And aliens get invited to dinner parties where there are sun lamps for them to sit under while the humans eat, because friendship, so they learn the cultural stuff around food and they can smell the interesting smells and it’s all good and pure. They don’t really understand the arguments about whose grandma makes the best food, but they nod and make positive facial expressions. It’s ok.

i have some thoughts about this photo that is apparently from josh’s twitter. these are my thoughts: hunk looks terrified, lance looks overjoyed, and keith just looks bored?? what is going ON in that movie

Lup dabbing at her brother to show him she was still lucid and then freefalling off the Starblaster to go apeshit on the hunger cleared my skin and cured my anxiety tbh

On the same note Taako being 100% supportive of his sister and giving her the greatest day ever and going to be there at the ceremony with a big smile on his face despite being fucking TERRIFIED for her safety and sanity watered my crops and fixed world hunger

ocean man, take me by the hand lead me to the land,

What do you think about Ron being a prefect because that always pissed me off in my opinion he absolutely did not deserve it

By the time he was 15 Ron Weasley had faced down more genuinely terrifying obstacles than most adults. He had demonstrated that his loyalty would prevail even when he was scared or jealous. He had shown that he had valuable skills and knew his limits, and that he was willing to step aside and take one for the team. Why wouldn’t he deserve to be a prefect?

Even if you’re not a Ron fan, though, consider the context. In appointing prefects Dumbledore would have had several goals in mind:

  • Keeping a handle on Harry - no one was going to do that better than Ron, including Hermione, who both Ron and Harry sometimes disregard because she can be so by-the-book.
  • Making sure that Harry had the latitude to do what he needed to do - Ron was going to be understanding of that in a way no one else would have been.
  • Making sure that the Death Eaters didn’t get a foothold in Gryffindor - Ron would never have let that happen.
  • Developing the Order’s bench - Ron’s whole family was in the Order, developing his leadership skills and confidence was the safest bet going.
  • Creating balance in the house - Hermione might be a stickler for rules, but Ron would be a moderating influence.
  • Appointing prefects who could lighten adults’ loads as they focused on the war - Ron would have had important perspective on what really needed adult intervention and what students could be encouraged to work out on their own.
  • Appointing prefects who would stand up to each other and make sure no one abused their power - Ron definitely wouldn’t have had a problem stepping in if anyone else, especially Pansy and Draco, had tried pulling rank on younger kids, and the Slytherins would’ve realized that Ron wouldn’t have been above retaliating if they’d been tempted.
  • Making Ron a prefect also would’ve helped him come into his own among his siblings, given him a better understanding of power and authority (and helped reveal any lurking character issues that power might have brought out - remember how Percy changed when he became a prefect?)
  • And tbh, if Dumbledore saw what was coming he may have understood the virtue in giving Ron some privileges and creature comforts (for his sake and for Harry’s).

Consider the choices, too. There are only five possible Gryffindor boys prefects.

  • Harry was way too preoccupied and wouldn’t have benefited from additional responsibility, nor was it the best use of his energy.
  • Seamus had doubts about whether Voldemort’s return was real and had contributed to people second-guessing Harry, and it would’ve been risky to give him authority if that’s how he might have used it.
  • Neville still had his old wand and his magical strength wasn’t great yet, and he also may not have had the social authority to enforce rules, plus he had shown that he was willing to stand up to the trio and stop them from doing what they needed to do which, while brave and well-intentioned, had the potential to really get in the way of important stuff.
  • Dean was great and probably would’ve been a perfectly fine prefect but didn’t come with the same tactical advantages.

Any way you look at it, it’s gotta be Ron. He was the best choice going in any number of ways. Including because he had shown that he deserved it.


(P.S. - Why Pansy and Draco were the right choices too)

I’m sorry no I’m not but bro

can we just take the time to acknowledge Sasuke’s face when Nardo gets hurt!?

Like LOOK AT HIM BRO.

bun emoji review

a good friend, tho his head is a lil too small. his eye is also too red, even for albino. 7/10

a good take on a cartoon bun!! that smile must mean she is living a happy life. 9/10 would feed a nanner

oh microsoft, when will your ugly thick lines end? the silhouette looks ok but his tail looks like a backwards broken leg. 6/10 take him to the vet

cute, though the ears are weirdly placed and the nose should not be a pink button. 7.5/10 would still snuggle

outstanding bun loaf anatomy, but where is her tail? 8/10 she looks concerned

would be a neat stylistic friend but he has a single ominous red eye. 4/10 i do not trust him

again with the great anatomy! but that button nose looks weird. 7/10 the texturing is also odd

best bun on list!!!!! he is a nice shade of beige and a+ bode. 10/10 would shower with all the timothy hay and veggies

is this a joke? really now. this is a tailless rat wearing apple slices on his head. ok cosplay tho 1/10

this is also not a bun. this looks like it was supposed to be a dog but the tail, teeth, and ears were changed last second. 2/10 not a bad face though

this “bunny” came from the area of hell where the minions andthe happy meal mascot were spawned. his face terrifies me. 0/10 save your children

not a bad bun, but the red outline is vague and menacing. 6/10 what happened to his ears

the fact that thob is both the most romantic and husbandy ep and the ep where they misunderstand each other the most is just 🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪

okay so today was pretty GREAT 

I finally got to meet one of my absolute fave human beings in the entire world and he was the sweetest and most beautiful sunshine ever 

I honestly love this man more than anything and to finally meet him irl was just unbelievably emotional, I don’t think it’s completely sunk in yet

(please excuse my face and my hair, i was NOT prepared for meeting the most beautiful person to ever walk this earth today so I look like a complete mess, but that’s okay because I have finally met Gregor and I couldn’t be happier)
