frank wills

Anne Frank was denied asylum in the US. Just like hundred thousand more jews trying to flee from Nazi-Germany. People with dreams and ambitions are still being denied asylum, are dying on the sea, in the desert, in wars or being deported because people don’t see them as humans, but just as foreigners / refugees etc. Don‘t lament Anne Frank if you’re not willing to learn from history.

Frank Wills, an $80-a-week security guard, triggered the uncovering of the Watergate scandal 39 years ago today.

The Post picked it up from there.

From his obituary in the Post (he died in 2000 of a brain tumor): Mr. Wills was considered a forgotten figure of Watergate when, in 1997, came a deluge of interview requests on the 25th anniversary of the break-in. He emerged embittered, telling a Boston Globe reporter: “I put my life on the line. I went out of my way. … If it wasn’t for me, Woodward and Bernstein would not have known anything about Watergate. This wasn’t finding a dollar under a couch somewhere.”

Break-in at the Watergate, 6/17/1972

Security Officer’s Log of the Watergate Office Building Showing Entry for June 17, 1972
File Unit: Frank Wills’ Witness File, 5/13/1972 - 7/25/1972
Series: Witness Files, 6/17/1972 - 11/4/1974
Record Group 460: Records of the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, 1971 - 1977

During the early hours of June 17, 1972, Frank Wills was the security guard on duty at the Watergate office complex in Washington, DC. This log shows that at 1:47 a.m. he called the police, who arrested five burglars inside the Democratic National Committee Headquarters. Investigation into the break-in exposed a trail of abuses that led to the highest levels of the Nixon administration and ultimately to the President himself. President Nixon resigned from office under threat of impeachment on August 9, 1974.

Great review! While watching Jenny telling Jamie the Claire she knew would have never stopped looking for him, I couldn't help but wonder if Jamie feels the same somehow. I think he secretly hoped the whole time she would come back to him and I think that's part of the hurt he still feels - that she didn't look for him earlier, that she stayed with Frank for so long while he left Laoghaire in a similar situation after just a few months. Maybe he's still scared she fell in love with Frank again?

I can DEFINITELY see a bit of this going through Jamie’s mind, especially where he literally escaped from prison and risked life and limb on the chance she might have come back for him. And he knows she loved Frank and she’s been willing to go to great lengths in the past for the man, including extracting that promise from him to put off challenging BJR. With everything Jamie knows of Claire’s relationship with Frank before she left and the fact that on some level he does want her to be happy and well-cared for—even if it’s with Frank—it’s entirely reasonable for Jamie to fear that she fell back in love with him after returning, that whatever love she felt for Frank was enough for her (or at least, more enough for her than what he’s been left with in her absence). 

Of course, in the show, Claire did look for him. As soon as she arrived back in the 20th century she began looking to see if there was anything to confirm that he had died. She burned through Reverend Wakefield’s library looking for anything about Jamie or the Lallybroch men. It’s on Mrs. Graham’s recommendation and then Frank’s making it a condition that she finally gives up her search. In many ways I think Claire feels like agreeing to Frank’s conditions was a betrayal of Jamie, even if returning to Frank was what he’d expressly told her to do. 

There are still so many things for Jamie and Claire to talk about concerning their twenty years apart. Some of it they will talk about further down the road (the scenes of them talking in bed on the Ridge during those first weeks and months are among my favorites from Drums). But they also reach a point where they don’t want to dwell too much on that pain. It takes a while but they eventually reach a point where they are able to accept that those years are well and truly behind them and they start sincerely looking forward, closing the door on that pain and instead relishing the present and the joy of being together again (in a more consistent way than that bubble of uncomplicated happiness they had during that brief time in Edinburgh before the print shop burned). 

After watching Dee Made a Smut Film, and PTSDee, I now get overwhelmingly angry when watching The Gang Gets Whacked 1&2. Frank whores Dennis out for money, forcing him to sleep with older women (making him relive his past trauma). Frank was willing to charge extra for Dennis to pretend he was enjoying the sex, and was putting Dennis in situations he obviously wasn’t comfortable with. The scene where Mac tries to get him out of it, and Dennis says that Frank takes care of him, is literally heart breaking. I know it was supposed to mirror a prostitute talking about her pimp, being played for laughs, but knowing these characters, it’s really unsettling. It’s early enough in the series where Frank is still somewhat seen as the father figure of the gang. Dennis, to an extent, still sees him as his father. His father who was distant during most of his life, who is now showing him all of this affection. Also Frank, who in earlier seasons is very tricky and manipulative, knows how to play on Dennis’ insecurities to get what he wants, if not he’s willing to go to extremes (to the point of physically abusing Dennis). Frank Reynolds is a horrible father, and can choke tbh.

bambi-sims  asked:

Ok so a while ago one of the show runners said that Frank was gonna get a kiss in TP and at the time we were all like "but who? Can't be Karen or the homeland security girl?" But now after all these clips? Maybe?? I don't know honestly XD

That last still on the trailer clip of Frank lowering his eyes is killing me softly (ay) but! I haven’t found that info anywhere else outside of that Reddit thread from April? I’d love to know if there’s another source because if it does happen, the possibilities…are wild. 

I’ve always been of the opinion that if it’s anyone BUT Karen, then it’s going to be a situation of manipulation or they’re both maintaining a cover/losing attention on them, or something like that. Something very very fleeting and without much depth….because I think the bond he and Karen have managed to build is so unique? Since she’s known and cared for him so far back, before he had a great many walls up, before he was more resigned than ever to his fate of, if not endless Punishing, then at least no positive futures anymore, well then I think she’s really burrowed inside him in a way completely beyond his control and in a way where he didn’t wisen to that and try to push her out until it was kind of too late. Which is why he reconnects to her so soon after returning. 

So, if a kiss of any kind happens and if it’s with Dinah or anyone else not Karen, I just have such a hard time imagining it could have a lot of mutual depth to it. Let alone depth that Frank would be willing to be open to or explore or anything like that the way we’ve gotten glimpses of how he will with Karen, apparently. As Jon said at Comic Con, he’s a guy that doesn’t want to feel things and connect with people, but Karen got in there anyway. For someone like him, I think she’s the exception and absolutely not the norm. 

(Also, I feel like all the snippets about his and Micro’s relationship kind of cement that exception factor beyond any romantic angle and just in general? In the way that they’re going to become each other’s main support, working and living together as they will be and all, but it’s very much a volatile thing. And when you compare that – specifically how he explodes on Micro and gets angry at him when he questions Frank in that recent clip – to how he caught himself shouting at Karen – not out of anger at her, out of anger spawned from terror spawned from remembrance losing others he cares about – and softened so quickly without her doing anything at all… to me, that’s such a big difference.)

Gosh, I rambled, but yeah. I don’t want anyone to get their hopes up because everything so far has been so WTF unexpected anyway??? Absolutely amazing. But if that does happen, (stressing the low hopes thing again lol) the possibility for it being a Kastle thing is there. My head is spinning from yesterday still tbh.

On another note….definitely don’t imagine them kissing in that trailer scene, and the aesthetic of Frank kissing Karen with a bloody mouth without her giving a care in the world about it or how dirty and battered they are, because…that’s just. Wow. I need that in fic now.

Sense8! AU Percy Jackson

Percy Jackson

  • Annabeth. 

He sees Annabeth first. He was just skating down the street when suddenly from the corner of his eye he sees a girl with blonde princess curls. It was just for second and he could swear that he was seeing things because when he looked again she was gone but he did catch a sight of grey eyes he couldn’t get his mind to forget.

  • Hazel. 

After a few weeks he felt a sensation. He looks up to startled Hazel. He’s never been to wherever he was now and he lets Hazel know, it was warm and there was jazz music. He was in coffee shop in New Orleans. Next thing they knew they were in New York, in Central Park, Hazel says he’s never been to New York. They make polite conversation about everything.

  • Frank. 

He was drinking coffee one morning alone because his mom just went off for an early shift at her job when suddenly he was in an obstacle course and he just tripped over himself. There was shouting and some were crying probably. He was in a training camp sort of place, he wasn’t sure. He didn’t know what was going on but from the looks of it he needs to get through this training course. He smiled to himself, oh he’s got this. He was in the basketball team, swimming team, soccer team, and hockey team through the course of his academic career so of course this training course was no biggie. After he’s run through the course he’s out of his body or out of the other guy’s body or was now not him in the position of the guy he was before. Okay, I’m not gonna try to wrap my head around this he thought. He looks at a baby faced Chinese guy. Frank thanked him and he replied with no problem.

  • Piper. 

While doing his paper on the importance of sharks the computer screen he was looking at turned into a beautiful sky full of stars. He was lying in the sand in a beach somewhere he turns and sees a girl lying down beside him crying. Well, this is embarrassing the girl says. He asks her why she’s crying. She spills her guts out to him and talk about her father, he talks about his mom shares some wisdom he never knew he had. She tells him her name is Piper by the way and he tells her his name is Percy.

  • Leo. 

He was in deep shit running away from people. Like bad people who wanted to do bad things to him. He’s not really a delinquent more troubled than anything. His mother is going to kill him if she found out. But now he was running away and in need of a faster getaway because these dudes had knives, sharp ones, or at least he thinks. Then a conveniently placed car was parked at a curb and he wished that he knew how to hot wire one. “Your wish has been granted” said a voice next to him grinning evilly, the dude was kind of short with curly hair and pointed ears, “I’m Leo at your service”. When he was done he thanked him and rode off.

  • Jason. 

He was at the beach because he’s been feeling really stressed with everything in his life and he just barely escaped grand theft auto charges, his grades are okay but they could be better not to mention his dad is just – His thoughts are interrupted when Jason suddenly shows up out of nowhere like he should be surprised by now.  “Hey” he greets the other with a friendly smile. “Hi” he replies confused and continues “Why are we here?”. Percy spills his stress to him and tells him that this was the place he goes to when he just wants to think and just get away from it all. They share a sort of companionable silence. Jason tells him that he’s been pretty stressed too mostly because he doesn’t know how to live up to the expectations especially with his dad. Percy smiled cheekily “So, you got daddy issues too huh?” and they laugh. 

  • Grover.

It was typical of Grover behavior to get bullied. He was a pushover and it sucks. He tried to be not such a push over but he was a pacifist he can’t just fight people. Plus, he had crutches and looked much like the tree huger he is. So, why was today different? When the goons from his life turned from middle school bullies to evil bosses at the place he was working life didn’t really change. So, when his boss pops in and tells him he’d be working over time because his boss was going on an unplanned vacation he felt like life sucks. “Let’s do something about it.” a voice beside him says. Before he could do anything he was watching Percy tell off his boss with some blackmail. Too shocked to do anything but watch his boss leave and Percy smile evilly saying “Wow, you stand up for yourself and you get the day off and a raise! Nice one.” to which Grover could only reply with “That. Was. So. Cool.”

I have this tradition. It’s something I do now when a friend dies. I save his Rolodex card. What am I supposed to do? Throw it away in the trash can? I won’t do that. No, I won’t. That’s too final. Last year I had five cards. No I have fifty. A collection of cardboard tombstones, bound together with a rubber band. I hate these fucking funerals. I really do. And you know what else I hate? I hate the memorials. That’s our social life now. Going to these things.

Outlander/ACOTAR Similarities

I’m not sure if there is much crossover between the Outlander fandom and the ACOTAR fandom other than myself and @bonnie-wee-swordsman​, but I definitely has some major Outlander deja vu while reading ACOWAR!

If you haven’t read Outlander or ACOTAR, beware, there are light spoilers below for both series! AND if you haven’t read Outlander or ACOTAR, you should get off Tumblr and go read both series. Because you are worth the flood of emotions that both series bring! ;)

The Frerard Theories: .she’s the prettiest girl at the party and she can prove it with a solid right hook.

Disclaimer:I’m not saying that this is the truth as for only Gerard and Frank know whatthe truth was. This is just a 20 year old girl who gets bored enough sometimes to analyze lyrics, and let me tell you, as an English Literature student I’m pretty damn good at it. If you don’t like frerard, don’t continue reading. I don’t want to change your mind, I don’t want for you to try and change mine. If you want to discuss something in a civilized way, feel free to contact me but otherwise I’m not interested. Also, note that I won’t ever, ever in my whole life go harassing these two men with frerard stuff because they have expressed they don’t like it and it’s disrespectful to not comply with what they want.

.she’s the prettiest girl at the party and she can prove it with a solid right hook.

i got my bags all packed and i’m ready to go. i’m standing outside of your figurative door. and i’m ready for the flight or to fall of a cliff, but if it’s alright with you i’d rather not miss out on us. cause your face is all i need to stay sane. i’ve spent my life getting in my own way. so i could use something good, i really need this to work out. of course the way things have been going it might be smarter to just cash out. but you’re on my mind, and the things that you say hurt me most of the time. but i’m sinking fast so it’s alright. i’ve tied my stomach in knots and I’m ready to know. i’ll put it on the line if you’d just give it a go. cause i wanna be the only one to hold you so close and so tight. and if it’s cool with you, i’d really love to spend the night. you said you never wanna be saved, well, that’s ok because i really wouldn’t know how. just know that the best that i’ll ever be is whatever you make me and wherever you are…you’re on my mind, and the things that you say hurt me most of the time. but i’m on your side, cause i know i’m not easy to deal with sometimes. but i’m sinking fast, so it’s alright. all we wanted was what we were, and what we were was young and naive. i found my place in this world, it’s in your wake. you’re on my mind, and the things that you say hurt me most of the time. but i’m on your side, because i know i’m not easy to deal with sometimes. but once in a while, i wish you would tell me if you even care. because i’m sinking fast, and i need you…i need you to know that i’m alright.

First of all, i’d like to say this song is beautiful. One of my favourites of .stomachaches. and yes, i do think it talks about Gerard, and I’ll be also talking about the video because I found some interesting things there too.

This song is about a break up. It’s about Frank not being ready to move on. i got my bags all packed and i’m ready to go. i’m standing outside of your figurative door. This is basically Frank saying “you’re throwing me out again.” He’s standing on a figurative door because Gerard was never clear to him, that’s why it’s not a literal door. Also, I think he’s telling us to not take this literally, to search for a ‘’figurative’’ meaning. Standing on someone’s door is also a way of saying that he’s out there, waiting for him.

and i’m ready for the flight or to fall of a cliff ‘’and I’m ready to move on (the flight) or rather fall off a cliff.’’ He’s saying that all of this makes him feel bad, that he’s trying so hard to move on but he feels like falling because it hurts. Because he can’t be with Gerard, and he loves him. He doesn’t want things to end. This was written when they started interacting a bit again after the band’s break up, mind this.

but if it’s alright with you i’d rather not miss out on us. ‘’but please, if you just gave me another chance, I’d be there. No matter what.’’ They are talking a little again, and this is giving frank hopes. He’s trying to be there, to get back together, no matter what. Because when you love someone, you give them all the chances in the world. They can treat you badly, they can hurt you. But you still want to not miss out on them.

cause your face is all i need to stay sane. Gerard is what keeps Frank sane. Remember back in ProjRev, when it all seemed to have ended between them? Frank was going crazy. He was so depressed it almost hurts to see his performances with LeATHERMOUTH and read his lyrics and poems. Not being with Gerard makes him be ‘’crazy’’, mentally ill, depressed. Performing with Gerard, just seeing his face, keeps him happy, because Frank lives for Gerard. We all know he didn’t want the band to be done. He didn’t see it coming, he has said that. He didn’t know about it and he didn’t like it. That’s why he got pissed at Gerard in the first place, because as always, Gerard wasn’t being clear with him. Frank misses this band, it was his life, he’s said that. I think it wasn’t just a band. It was what connected him with Gerard and now it’s done and he didn’t want this to happen. But then again, he only wants to make Gerard happy, because seeing his face is what keeps him alive.

i’ve spent my life getting in my own way. so i could use something good, i really need this to work out. To me this line is fucking interesting. I mean, if this was about Jamia, how does she fit in here? He knows that everything is going to work out between them, for fuck’s sake, they are married. Everything is okay between them, this is not about her. This is about a relationship where both of the people involved have made mistakes. Frank getting engaged with Jamia in the middle of the writing of TBP for example. We all know something bad happened in that house, because suddenly Frank was engaged and they didn’t flirt on stage anymore. Gerard reacted by getting himself engaged with someone that was stalking him. I mean, it was like he was screaming at Frank ‘’I don’t fucking need you. I don’t love you’’ (yes, I think I don’t love you was a song about G+F). They both have made mistakes, they both have gotten in their own ways. Now, he says ‘’I really need this to work out’’, basically, he really needs all this new interaction with Gerard to lead to something more, because he can’t stand the possibility of losing him. Period.

of course the way things have been going it might be smarter to just cash out. This line talks about how their relationship actually is. How Gerard always deceives him, makes him think he’s ready to take the next step just to let him fall again, that’s why it would be smarter to not to do this. They have just started talking again, and Frank is struggling with the idea that if he lets Gerard in again, it’s just going to cause him a lot of pain, but then again, he can’t simply bear the idea of being without him.

but you’re on my mind, and the things that you say hurt me most of the time. ‘’but I’m always thinking about you.’’ Of course he is. Even if this song wasn’t for Gerard (which it is) it doesn’t make any sense to try and fit Jamia here. The only person that makes sense here is Gerard. If you don’t believe this, please give me your reasons. ‘’the things that you say hurt me most of the time’’ I think this refers to Gerard not being clear about them. Gerard telling the world it was a fake, nothing but ‘’stage gay.’’ How would it make you feel if the person you’re in love with told the world that your relationship was a fake? Knowing that Gerard doesn’t want to say the truth about them must be really hard.

but i’m sinking fast so it’s alright. He’s saying that he’s going back to being depressed again, and really fast. He obviously misses him, he misses the band and he misses everything that has to do with Gerard altogether. It’s destroying me knowing that Frank is depressed about the break up. That he didn’t want it to end. I mean, I understand the reasons behind it, I understand why Gerard had to put it to an end. I understand why Mikey needed this. But Frank didn’t want this to end, because it was his connection with Gerard. Months of touring, just both of them, no wives, no kids. No real life while being on the tour, just them against the world:

Frank: We live on each other… we’re in each other’s faces.
Gerard: We sleep with each other.
Frank: Like, 24/7, yeah. I mean, that’s it. It’s us and the world.

‘’it’s just us and the world.’’ Mind this, he isn’t referring to the whole band here, Gerard isn’t referring to the whole band here. They are talking just about them, saying that when they are together, there’s nothing else in the world.

i’ve tied my stomach in knots and I’m ready to know. ‘’I’ve tried to wrap my head around the idea of not having you ever again, so just tell me.’’ That’s it. This is a song about a break up, a story that ends, but one of the people involved isn’t ready to move on, as I’ve said. Does this ring a bell? Do you know anyone who isn’t ready to move on from someone and something? Frank here is just asking Gerard to be clear for once and for all, if they are done, if this is it, he wants him to tell Frank. Even if it hurts (stomach tied in knots), even if it’s going to be difficult. Frank needs to know what is going to happen now that the band is done.

i’ll put it on the line if you’d just give it a go. As always, Frank is being extremely poetic here. Let’s give a look at the definition of ‘’put it on the line’’: to risk failure. Basically, Frank is willing to risk being hurt again if Gerard would only give this another chance. Another start. Frank wants to do this again, even if he knows it would probably involve a lot of pain, because he loves Gerard. He needs Gerard, he wants to be with him. This is Frank asking Gerard if they could get back together, maybe even as a band.

cause i wanna be the only one to hold you so close and so tight. Boom. Frank again being extremely explicit. Frank again telling us that this isn’t about Jamia. Of course he’s the only one that holds her ‘’close and tight.’’ They are fucking married. But he’s not the only one who holds Gerard that way, is he? He wants Gerard just for him, he wants this to be real. He needs to stop hiding, he needs Gerard all for himself.

and if it’s cool with you, i’d really love to spend the night. ‘’if you’d let me, I’d stay forever.’’ I think the purpose of this song is to make Gerard know that Frank is still there. That even if he’s hurt, even if he knows he would probably hurt Frank again, he’s still there for him. No matter what. But Gerard doesn’t want to break his plastic life. I mean, I know he loves LynZ. But I catch like a weird vibe from that relationship, like something’s off. It’s like Gerard feels the need to talk about her, almost praise her, just so no one suspects. Look at Frank’s relationship with Jamia for example: Frank doesn’t need to praise her at all, because he’s sure about that. He knows what Jamia is for him, and he knows she’s in love with him, and when that happens, you don’t need to constantly talk about it. Gerard, on the other hand, feels the need to tell everyone how awesome his life is, how happy he is. Usually, this happens when that isn’t true. Usually this happens when you’re not happy with your life, but if you let people know about that, it’s not going to make things easier. Questions would be asked. Gerard doesn’t want that. He’s had the opportunity to deny being into guys a thousand times, and all of them, he hasn’t been clear about it. It just seems a bit off to me.

you said you never wanna be saved, well, that’s ok because i really wouldn’t know how. This is Gerard telling Frank that he doesn’t want to be saved from the lies he’s gotten both of them into. I mean, how would the world react if Gerard said tomorrow that he was in love with Frank? Do you know how many questions that would raise? Frank couldn’t help Gerard out on this one, because they’ve tried to not to talk about this a thousand times. Gerard has hidden in his plastic life and if he told us tomorrow that he was in love with Frank, everyone would be asking questions, everyone would be judging. And Frank really doesn’t know how to help him here. UPDATE: I JUST FOUND LIKE THE ULTIMATE EVIDENCE THAT CONNECTS GERARD TO THIS SONG:

“I learned that the world doesn’t want to be saved, and it will fucking punch you in the face if you try.”-Gerard Way.

Fuck me if this song isn’t about Gerard. Like come on, too many coincidences.

just know that the best that i’ll ever be is whatever you make me and wherever you are… just know that the best of me is you. Just know that I’ll be there for you, because you make me a better person. Just know that being with you, in the same place at the same time, is what makes me the best of me. I mean. Come on. This is obviously Frank telling Gerard that he loves him, that he wants to be with him. If this isn’t a fucking declaration of love, I don’t know what is.

you’re on my mind, and the things that you say hurt me most of the time. but i’m on your side, cause i know i’m not easy to deal with sometimes. but i’m sinking fast, so it’s alright. Even if you say things that hurt me like 24/7, I kinda understand you, because I know it’s difficult to put up with me. Have you ever seen Frank on stage? He kicked Gerard in the balls once. He’s injured Bob, Mikey, I think he’s even injured Ray at some point. He’s ‘’difficult’’ to deal with, he knows it. He understands to a point why this is not easy for Gerard. He knows he has flaws, that’s why he’s ‘’on Gerard’s side.’’

all we wanted was what we were, and what we were was young and naïve. This is for me the most explicit line in this whole song. ‘’what we wanted is in the past now, we were young and didn’t have a care.’’ He wants that back. But he can’t have it because they are both ‘’grown ups’’ now. They have a family, they have broken up the band. They are doing other things. They thought the world wouldn’t notice about what was going on between them, and that’s why they were naïve. He wants that back, that innocence, those first moments of their relationship.

i found my place in this world, it’s in your wake. ‘’my place in this life is at your side.’’ He wants to see Gerard when he’s most vulnerable ‘’in his wake.’’ He wants to be with Gerard at all times, because it’s where he feels like he belongs. Being side by side with Gerard is what makes him feel alive, it’s what makes him feel happy.

you’re on my mind, and the things that you say hurt me most of the time. but i’m on your side, because i know i’m not easy to deal with sometimes. but once in a while, i wish you would tell me if you even care. because i’m sinking fast, and i need you…i need you to know that i’m alright. Again, Frank knows he’s not easy to put up with, he has flaws too and he’s made mistakes as well, that’s why he understands that Gerard says stuff that hurts him and that’s why he’s on his side. This is where shit gets real ‘’but once in a while, I wish you’d tell me if you even care’’ this excludes Jamia. Like it’s not possible to say this song is for her. It’s not possible. He knows that Jamia cares. Period. But Gerard? How can he know if Gerard cares? He’s been letting him get hurt for years now. Gerard has been making out with him just to let him go shortly after because he was scared. Gerard has been in love (still is if you ask me) with Frank just to marry another person because he didn’t want the world to know about this. If you loved someone and they didn’t show it to you, they didn’t want to go public with you, you’d wonder if they care at all. If they love you or this is just for fun. Frank needs to know this because he’s feeling depressed again. Even if Gerard doesn’t care anymore, he needs to know if he cared back in the day. Now, he repeats ‘’I need you’’ for five times (because he needs Gerard, I’ve said that earlier), and he needs him to know that he’s alright. That it’s okay, he didn’t want to break up the band, but he understands why. He wants to be with Gerard, but he understands why he can’t be with him. Still he needs him. (this seriously breaks my heart).

Other facts:

Now, since I love this song, I’ve seen all the live performances I could find on YouTube. And what was my surprise when I found one where Frank said (and I literally quote): ‘’I wrote about one of the strongest PEOPLE I know. And it’s a very true story. It’s about being a complete mess but still finding true love and hoping that it kinda saves you from yourself.’’ Fuck my life if this isn’t about Gerard. It’s very interesting how he says PEOPLE. Not Girl. Not woman. PEOPLE. Again, as he does in .where do we belong? anywhere but here. he’s making sure to not to use a specific gender. I mean, come on. Gerard is one of the strongest people Frank knows, the man was able to get sober within 14 days. Remember when Gerard was throwing up in the bushes and falling to the floor? He told Frank: I’ll get better, I promise. (it’s a very true story). 

Now comes the huge part: being a complete mess but still finding true love and hoping that kinda saves you from yourself. This, for me, has two options: Gerard being a complete mess, falling in love with Frank and hoping Frank saves him from himself (I’ll get better, I promise). It wasn’t Mikey he was promising this to. It was Frank. We all know Frank was by Gerard’s side all through his rehab. (also, this reminds me of Boy Division, when Gerard sings ‘’save me from my self-destruction’’). Too many coincidences again. The other possibility, is that he’s talking about himself and about how falling in love with Gerard, even if it hurt him, saved him when he was having stomach problems and being depressed in general back in LeATHERMOUTH. When did Frank start to get better? When he started talking again with Gerard. Of fucking course.

Now, the video. It shows a bear who falls in love with a girl, but in order to approach her, he has to shave all his hair and become human. He has to hide his true self. To me this talks about being in the closet. I mean, Gerard isn’t clear about him liking guys. Gerard hid himself to be with Frank. Just like the bear. And then, when he finally shows the girl who he really is, the girl turns out to be just like him. Frank is telling Gerard that if they stop hiding, if they stop pretending, they can be together. If they let their true selves come out, they can be together again. Just look at the video, to me that’s what means.

💀🏵 frank {son of dr. facilier} // oc created for @creamlattes 🏵💀

{ @creamlattes if you like him, feel free to keep him as your own! use him for requests and stories, anything you want! he’s yours! }

frank is dr. facilier’s 15 year old son // starts an lgbt club in auradon , which encourages a lot of closeted students to come out // the club was a great way for frank to make some new friends in auradon // because he could never practice voodoo on the isle , it was one of the first things he {secretly} tried in his new dorm ; it didn’t exactly go as planned, and a green haze filled the dorm for about a week // dresses immaculately now that he can buy new clothes // posesses the ability to tell the future through voodoo , which his friends use to their advantage, if frank is willing // hopeless romantic // very charming , like his father // asks lonnie, the resident “chef”, to teach him to make beignets, so he can feel closer to home // it’s amazing , and now it’s a dorm tradition every friday night for everyone to get together and make some for movie night // a bit of a gossip, since his voodoo allows him to know more about people than they’d probably like // joins band , for the jazz of course // wears a skull pendant like his father’s everyday

I need beta readers

So, my main squeezes haven’t read Red Queen, yet. And so, I need to hunt out some beta readers that will give me critical feedback on my NaNoWriMo story.

  • Up for proposing potential changes or brainstorming
  • Willing to work with me back and forth for as long as it takes or as long as you can stand me
  • Strong preference for folks that can grammar (which I cannot)
  • Preference for those that just don’t have time to sugar coat the bad news, be frank with me. :)

Willing to read and feedback in exchange, also willing to do dream-realization fics, and prompts and shout out your involvement in the authors notes, and even rec your fics.

Let me know (reply, reblog, message) if you’re game.
