I was really still foolishly holding out hope for a surprise 4th episode but if there is one then PBS isn't playing it because I checked the listings for next Sunday and they are showing Mercy Street and the Victoria miniseries. I even checked on the 29th. Same. Yea. I still feel like something is ~up but not sure if that means a surprise episode anymore. I am so confused and bummed

Yeah, Lovely, this is why I’m a bit skeptical about it all. There’s no room on PBS’ schedule for another episode. Unless this becomes an online-only episode, I honestly can’t see them just… switching up the schedule last minute. The audience who tuned in for those shows will not be happy that it’s an episode of Sherlock. Two completely different genres.

He can’t quite explain why he feels odd when thinking about that part of Louis’ life—him and Zayn, on the run from Liam (Liam!) and the rest of the Feds—but he guesses it has something to do with the combination of fondness and hurt that flickers across Louis’ face whenever anyone brings it up, mostly other hunters who met him back then, or even earlier, when he was hunting with his dad. Those ones make Harry wish he could still kill people by looking at them. Well. Not that he ever had, actually, and he hadn’t tried, so he likes to think he had the ability and chose not to exercise it. He’d still kill for Louis in an instant; his returned humanity hasn’t drained the evil from him like he’d foolishly hoped. But he has a life now, which doesn’t count for nothing. And he has Louis, who counts for a lot.

Set a few months after the end of Run Like the Devil. The holiday season arrives and brings with it some not-so-welcome figures from Louis and Harry’s pasts.

Reasons to respect the hell out of Ginny Weasley

-She was prepared to turn herself in during her first year before Riddle kidnapped her

-She takes no shit from her brothers, nor does she let them get away with cruelty to others

-She taught herself Quidditch on “borrowed” brooms

-She is a first-rate hexer

-She kept her heart open after rejection, going out with other people

-She respected Harry’s choice to breakup, and didn’t make it harder for him, even though she didn’t agree

-On the other hand, she has zero issues pointing out when Harry behaves badly/foolishly

-She was the first one to be kind to Luna Lovegood, treating her with courtesy when others avoided her like the plague

-She is just as much of a sass master as Harry

-She joined Dumbledore’s Army, held her own at the Ministry, and helped to lead the resistance in Hogwarts during her sixth year

-She comforted an injured, likely dying student during the Battle of Hogwarts

-She was prepared to face down Bellatrix Lefuckingstrange

Conclusion: Ginny Weasley is a kind, brave, talented witch who deserves our respect.

‘well, the joke truly is on me. helping you win your freedom all those years ago; foolishly being the midwife to the birth of the empire that would end mine—indeed, i should have strangled you in your cradle.’

‘empire? i’m not like you.

‘call yourself whatever you like, my dear boy- shining city on a hill; special; exceptional; a grand experiment improving on the horrible Old World but no matter how much you pretend and dress it up, you and I aren’t so different.’

TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.
What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.
—  Howard Zinn

“Rubies are dumb,” people say. Both in the show and in the fandom, that’s something we hear a lot–though not without good reason. We’ve seen many Rubies act childishly and even downright foolishly, falling for many obvious ploys. Given such staggering evidence, it’s obvious: Rubies are dumb.

This is such a wildly accepted fact that many doubt the validity of Eyeball’s testament of Pink Diamond’s murder. Rubies are dumb, so how can we believe what she said?

I think our Ruby–the Ruby that makes half of Garnet–is certainly aware of this. Gems on Homeworld know what they were made for, and what role they play in society, then our Ruby has know that she’s stupid from her first few moments of life. And she accepts it, for the most part–but there’s one Gem who cannot.

Sapphire.

A relationship is, ideally, an equal partnership, and it is so important that Sapphire respects Ruby’s intelligence, because by Homeworld standards, Sapphire’s intelligence far outstrips Ruby’s. Sapphire was made to serve in Blue Diamond’s court, to stand in great Spires that, as Bismuth would say, are for “important thinkers to think in.” Homeworld respects Sapphire’s intelligence–and Sapphire respects Ruby’s.

It’s important that Sapphire doesn’t reassure Ruby by saying, “We’re both stupid” or “I’m stupid, too.” She doesn’t demean herself to be on the same level as Ruby, but instead lifts Ruby up. “I don’t think you’re stupid.”

Sapphire refuses to let Ruby define herself on Homeworld’s terms. They’re the ones that call her stupid–and they’re also the ones who call Garnet disgusting. Ruby and Sapphire both know that they’re wrong about Garnet, and Sapphire needs Ruby to believe that that they’re wrong about her, too.

“Man, Rubies are dumb,” Amethyst says, watching them fly towards Neptune. And Garnet only smiles.

“Not all of them.”

“Uhh…”

The heavy, gut-wrenching grunt echoes in your ear as the man on top of you (James, Jack, something starting with a J) rocks his hips slowly, his less-than-average cock slipping almost too easily inside you on every stroke.

You picked him up in a bar a while ago after listening to him drone on and on about how he was a successful businessman who ran his own international business company. Foolishly thinking with money and power must come good sex, you took him up on his offer and followed him back to his motel room. Sadly, you realize that what came with the expensive suit and shiny Italian shoes came nothing but an over-the-top ego and very little in way of sexual prowess.
