get me out of this prison

Jim Moriarty 1, Eurus Holmes 0

So just watched the episode again. And it struck me just how broken Eurus is.

I mean she may be good at messing with people but she is a million percent less functional than Jim was even with his suicidal boredom. Jim built a criminal empire over decades, he created a new type of criminal career and was filthy rich and never got done for a single crime.

And Eurus? She eventually managed to get out of prison and to kill a couple of people, play a few games, be persuasive for a while, and then got all teary and got locked up again. And even that was only with his help once he’d ‘woken her up’.

How amused Jim would have been to see her break down at the end. I wonder if he saw that emotional time bomb in her when they met.

He used her to burn the heart out of Sherlock and when she was done and broken she ended up right back where she started.

Jim will always be king

anonymous asked:

I know the Baudelaires parents died but I did have hope that Mother and Father would be their parents instead of the Quagmires. But why were the Quagmires after the Baudelaires children? Why were the children going to Peru were the Quagmires were? I believed the Quagmires were first choice guardians of the Baudelaires. But, who sent that secret code to the Quagmires? Who saved Mr. Poe's job? Perhaps one of their parents made it out and sent the Quagmires to help. This is driving me nuts!!

Woah there, volunteer! There’s a lot to asnwer here:

What I Wish We’d Had in Dishonored 2

[be warned, this has spoilers for Dishonored and Dishonored 2.]

So. Dishonored 2 has been out for a while, but all that means is I’ve had some time to think about it. And what it lacks.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the game. The gameplay, the powers, and the level design are all huge improvements on what was already an excellent game. The worldbuilding was fantastic. But it lacked…emotion.

In Dishonored, there was a terrified desperation and a constant malaise of decay as you moved through the game. As your journey took you from the strictly orderly Coldridge Prison to the divided remnants of the Loyalists at Kingsparrow Island, you watch everything collapse–as Jessamine predicts with her final words, “It’s all coming apart.” As you play through–on high chaos or low–you experience that. You see the literal collapsing of Dunwall, as you crawl through its underbelly, as you cross the collapsing ruins of the Flooded District. You see the increasing brutality of the city watch, as Sokolov’s devices are turned on civilians and gang members alike, as the response to the plague becomes “burn them.” You see the very idea of loyalty fall apart, as the Loyalists betray you and Havelock set himself up as Burrows 2.0–but this time more desperate, more alone, less defended. High chaos or low, Havelock turns on Pendleton and Martin, and sits, cornered but unwilling to give up, waiting for Corvo to come “crossing the island as though it were nothing.” With each level, for each success, you, and Dunwall, have gotten a bit more fucked. Alongside Samuel and Emily’s responses to your choices, the plot and world make you feel the desperation regardless of what you do, as events outside your control bring Dunwall to the edge of desolation, and you’re the tipping point.

I don’t think Dishonored 2 had the potential for that desperation–not without completely redoing the plot–but I also don’t think it needed that. What it needed was a new emotional direction, one that Jessamine’s presence didn’t really provide.

The biggest weakness of Dishonored 2′s story is that it’s Dishonored’s, but without the desperation. You even go kidnap Sokolov again. In Mission 4, no less. And, eventually, after bringing down all his allies, you go to Dunwall Tower and take out the Lord Regent–I mean, you go to the Grand Palace and take out the Duke.

What Dishonored 2 has that Dishonored doesn’t is an Empress. It’s Emily’s story this time, not Corvo’s. And sometimes Emily being Empress–and a fairly neglectful Empress, at that–is relevant. For a line or two. 

So what I wish we’d had in Dishonored 2 is a storyline that deals with that, and there are two ways I’d have gone about that without making it a repeat of Dishonored:

1) Make Luca actually a good Duke. Make him actually care for his people, and helping Delilah seize power out of love for her and dislike of Emily’s (and Dunwall’s) indifference. Give me more reason to spare him. Make overthrowing him a morally dubious decision.

2) Keep Luca Abele as he is, but have him lose his city and his throne. Have someone else–Lucia Pastor, perhaps–overthrow him, then make a deal with Delilah to bring down Emily, since it was her indifference that let the Duke become what he became. 

Either way, making the leader of Serkonos, one of Delilah’s most powerful allies, a better leader than Emily herself has been gives a lot more opportunity to show her growth, rather than a couple scattered lines and the character telling us “oh yeah I’ve learned a lot about not being a bad ruler” at the beginning of the last mission. 

We were watching the PLAY

DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU HAVE GIVEN UP ON MOFFTISS AND DO NOT WANT TO HAVE YOUR HOPES CRUSHED AGAIN, AS THIS MIGHT BE UTTER BULLSHIT, but:

I just re-watched tfp to overanalyse the utter shit this episode was and found something that made me a little suspicious:

This shot is one of the cameras in Eurus cell. It is one of the recorded videos that show her manipulating the prison warden, and it reads 18992201.Of couse they could be random numbers, but I thought hey, why not strip them down. The first idea was a date, 22.01.1899, but I couldn´t really find anything.

But what if we seperate them? There have been numerous rumours that we might get a fourth episode next sunday and someone even found out that yahoo has a fourth episode listed.

The date for that episode is the 22.01.

Now we´ve still got 1899 left. A little google search on Arhtur Conan Doyle was done and I found THIS:

Conan Doyle wrote a PLAY in 1899 THAT DREW MATERIAL FROM SCANDAL IN BELGRAVIA, THE FINAL PROBLEM AND A STUDY IN PINK.

Now, lets see what we got this episode:

Honor Kneafsey

the girl who not only played the girl on the plane, but also one of the sisters at the beginning in A Scandal in Belgravia. (Plus: everyone on the plane in tfp was “asleep”, just like the dead people in asib)

A Study in Pink


basically the whole ending of this episode was asip flashbacks. We´ve got shock blankets, 221b, even the flippin text Sherlock send (You know where to find me. SH) is the exact same text he send to Lestrade in the beginning of asip. Everything is back to the beginning.


There is so much more to this, but I really want to believe I´m on the right track here. They promised us a rug pull, but they had to give us a rug first. This is it.

The reason TFP was so bad was because it wasn´t the original story. It´s a PLAY. In fact, this is THE PLAY where one of Conan Doyles famous quotes regarding his characters comes from:

Doyle later recounted how he had received a cable from Gillette inquiring, “May I marry Holmes?”, to which Conan Doyle replied, “You may marry him, murder him, or do anything you like to him.

THAT IS WHAT THEY DID. They redid 1899 and made us believe we we´re watching the original story. But it´s not, and we will have to wait to the 22.01 to find out what really happened.

(sorry if this was rambly. I am neither a good writer nor is my english good enough to put all my thoughts into words. but my key message is: if you are still willing to hope, please do!)

Voltron Theory: “Galra” is not a species

I’ve had this theory on the brain for AGES and I want to get it out before season 2 so HERE WE GO: 

Throughout season 1 of Voltron, we have been introduced to four definite species of aliens: Alteans, Arusians, Balmerans, and the Galra (I’m not counting the prisoners Shiro and Matt met because we only see one of each rather than a population, so there’s no way to compare).

Between these four species (we can also consider humans for this), I think it’s safe to say that the Galra are by far the most physically diverse:

The Galra differ in ways that no other species does. Although they share the same purple skin tones and yellow eyes, they actually show a surprising variety of physical features: some have fur, some don’t; some have different-shaped ears; some are more reptilian; some even have irises, while the majority don’t; most are very tall, but Haggar is actually shorter than Allura.

Another notable difference is that while all other alien species we’ve met have a home planet, the Galra have only a huge military base–there’s no planet. A Galra homeworld is never mentioned, and the term “Galra” itself can always be interpreted as referring to a military force or distinct government. We never meet a “Galra person”–only Galra soldiers and Galra ships. 

Another odd moment I noticed was in episode 106 during Haggar’s Komar(?) experiment.

Zarkon: “This [the Komar Experiment] will revolutionize the way we advance throughout the galaxy. Mining and colonizing planets is a thing of the past.”

Mining planets certainly makes sense–we see that with the Balmera. But colonizing seems like a weird term. Why would Zarkon want his own people to mingle with indigenous lifeforms on other planets? Why not just take the resources, enslave the people, and hop to the next? Why “colonize”? 

Also, there is this “refining” process to consider: 

We know that quintessence is incredibly powerful: “the substance with the highest known energy-per-unit volume in the universe.” We also know that it is perfectly suitable for powering spaceships, as we see with the Altean castle. So why would there be a refining process? What specific requirements would their ships need? And WHY would the refining process itself require magic of all things? 

Unless it isn’t meant solely for ships. 

I submit that “Galra” isn’t a species of aliens like we’re thinking. I think the Galra are actually genetically modified aliens from various backgrounds that have been conquered–or more specifically “colonized”–by Zarkon. 

I only feel like myself when I’m dancing around a penthouse apartment in a fur coat, drinking champagne from the bottle. He’s watching me, laughing, with his wallet out and his dick hard.

I’m painted like a sad sixties movie star. At 2am I lie in bed with my head on his chest. It’s black & white, but I know my tongue shines like rubies, wet & glossy. Is he watching me sleeping? I’m getting warmer but I don’t want him to see me soften just yet. 

When I try to go he stops me with his hands around my throat. If I say no then I’m a ghost & I’ve never been the kind of girl who fades out like a star. I’m neon signs & prison bars. Give love and then I take it. I’ve been taken from the most.

Sometimes I think I’m so pure that my blood runs clear like holy water & everyone who looks into my eyes will know that I don’t fall in love. I fall from heaven. He thinks I’m here to save him….

Face of an angel & the body of a porn star. The men play cards and split cash like God is watching but he keeps his eyes shut tight, like I do at night when they touch me like a rose, only petals, no thorns…

but where they see a halo, i see horns.

The Signs as Celldweller Lyrics

Aries:  “If time’s a song, I won’t wait for its reprise. I am done wishing farewells and goodbyes” - EON

Taurus:  “What the hell is wrong with me? Why am I torturing myself? Fixated on these memories. Like a prisoner inside a cell” - So Long Sentiment

Gemini: “I want to forget mistakes they’ve helped me make. It’s better to be broken than to break” - Frozen

Cancer: “I feel lost in time. But if I wait for direction my lifetime will pass me by.” - Lost In Time

Virgo: “Are you hoping for something? Waiting for some sign? It’s time to jump in or simply get the hell out. I think you better make up your mind” - The Best It’s Gonna Get

Leo: “You go on pretending that you own the universe and we’ll all be here watching as you’re falling down to earth” - Down To Earth

Scorpio: “I’ve pinned my heart to my sleeve so that the whole world can see I have a heart on for you” - Heart On

Sagittarius: “How could have I been so earthbound with my heart in the depths and my face in the ground? It’s time to uproot myself and move on.” - Birthright

Libra: “Lead in my gut, not in my spine. I feel distracted all the time” - So Long Sentiment

Capricorn: “Don’t back up, your ass is to the wall again and aren’t you sick of wasting so much time?” - Birthright

Aquarius: “I’ve already crossed my heart and hoped to die and it’s true, I am a fighter with a point to prove.” - Heart On

Pisces: “A problem I’m not solving, eternally revolving. I wandered from the pathway, praying you will come to save me.” - Lost In Time

So another thing about Shiro’s galra arm being the reason why Zarkon keeps finding them:

His arm has his prisoner number information somewhere in there is a tracker.

Can’t let the Champion get away that easy. Can you.

There it is.

I really haven’t seen anyone mentioned this maybe I haven’t looked hard enough.

On a side note: I did get his permission to put these pics up and to tell this story. If you have any other questions please message me and I’ll try to post what answers I can. 

This is my mate from London, met him while out on the club scene in 2014. He used to always be out taking drugs, partying and fucking so many guys. A real recognisable face everyone knew him and everyone fancied him. He used to get loads of attention, modelled quite a few club nights and even modelled fashion stuff as well.

Anyway in early 2015 he was prosecuted for some drug charge and sent to prison for 16 months. While in prison without his drug taking partying lifestyle he jus got massively overweight. His chiselled abs and rock hard pecs swelled and softened, and his belly just ballooned out in front of him as he wasn’t really able to be active he said that he just became really lazy, watched tv and ate snacks all day for the whole time. He was weighed when he went in, he was 5′10″ and 167 lbs and left 16 months later 236 lbs. Since he has been out he is still gaining more weight even though he has made poor attempts to get back into shape. 

Now back in London I made contact with him again. He wanted a hook up and when before I wasn’t his first pick, all his former gym bunny conquests aren’t interested in him now he has let himself go and let himself get so massively overweight. 

I see him occasionally, firstly I was shocked at how big he was and would tease him about his chubby fingers, his slight waddle and how his vest barely fits over his round belly now. Now he knows I’m into him being big and gaining more weight and even though he says he is ‘trying’ to lose weight, he lacks self control with me and I can always get him to pig out at a buffet or chug a few beers at a bar. Even had some feeding sessions while having sex where he has chugged pints of cream for me. Its weird how before I was too fat and not ripped enough for him and how I am in way better shape than him and I’m making him get fatter and fatter and becoming a big blubber boy.

The Kiss of Death?

Context: First session of a new game, but most of the players are also in another game, so we all know each other pretty well. We were all in an airship brig being transported to the harsh prison region.

Our Bard(Yaz) managed to get out of her cell after making the guard break down about the state of his life and giving him a kiss, only to see his throat open up(a mysterious detail we collectively forgot 30 seconds later)

After getting the cell key from the dead guard, I, a muzzled silver Dragonborn, got her to let me out out as well…

Yaz, after trying and failing to get my muzzle off: We’ll figure out how to get that off, don’t worry. (Rolls a 23 Athletics to give my Dragonborn a kiss on the forehead)

A few moments later…

Yaz: Y'know, everyone who’s died so far, I’ve kissed!

Me, ooc: I’d like to start wiping my forehead clean now…

Butcher!Neil - PART IV

>>Read from Part I

When Neil Josten goes to prison, he makes a five year plan.

It’s not the same kind of five-year plan most sixteen year olds have, and he doesn’t expect to live for all of it, but if all goes well, neither will his father.

When he meets Andrew Minyard, he makes a tweak in his plan.

See, Andrew gets sent to solitary confinement when he murders another inmate. But there’s a man here who knows one of the prison officers who knows other prison officers and Neil was planning to bribe them with the location of one of Mary’s stashes of money anyway, to have someone who can keep him updated on his father, but it’s no effort to have Andrew Minyard come straight back out of solitary.

“Don’t do me favours,” he tells Neil, his orange sleeves pulled right down over his arms. He must have left his black armbands and its knives somewhere else.

Neil turns, and falls into step with him. “Just returning the one you did me.”

“I told you. He was a lousy cellmate.”

“I want something from you. Something else,” says Neil, and Andrew tilts his head. He’s listening. Prison is an endless churn of favours owed and favours due. “Get me a set of knives like yours.”

Andrew smiles mirthlessly. “And what will you give me for that?”

“Name your price,” says Neil. Andrew raises an eyebrow, as if to ask if Neil is really that stupid. “I might not agree to it. But it depends on what you want.”

“Nothing,” says Andrew. They reach his cell, but given the door’s made of bars, it makes little effect when he closes it in Neil’s face. “I want nothing.”

If Neil has learnt anything from his father, it’s that this is never true. Everyone wants something, even if it’s as simple as peace. “How long is your sentence?”

Andrew frowns at him, the first real hint of emotion Neil’s seen. “Ten.” A pause, then a faint warning note: “I don’t like being toyed with.”

That’s something that Neil’s already aware of, so he cuts straight through to his plan, pitching his voice low so no one else can hear. Even with early release for good behaviour, that ten years is going to be eight, at least “I’m going to be out in under three. I’ll take you with me.”

This time, Andrew laughs. It echoes through the cell, drawing several panicked looks from their neighbours.

“Glad to be of entertainment,” mutters Neil, but Andrew is still facing him, so he supposes he caught his attention.

“A jailbreak,” says Andrew in a tone that implies he doesn’t believe Neil at all. “How exciting.”

Neil leans against the wall. Andrew has to look up at him from where he sits on the thin mattress, but physical intimidation and height is not something that works on a man who has spent his life looking up at everyone. “Not quite. I’ll be trading information for my time.”

Andrew’s lip curls. “Mob business.”

“Not for much longer,” says Neil.

“You’re boring me,” says Andrew dismissively. “Go away.”

Neil does. He hadn’t expected Andrew to say yes, but when he goes to bed that night, he finds a pair of black armbands tucked into his pillowcase.  

There’s only one knife in each, but, well, Neil’s only got two hands.

“You belong to me...”

Warning: Smut.

It’s been a few months since Woodbury fell and Rick brought those willing to accept out ways to the prison. You were in charge of people inquires and relations, a dumb job you thought, but it gave you something to do every day. Help those who came here and help them get back into the everyday motions. You were standing outside watching a group kill the walkers that were building up against the fence, when you felt the presence of another person standing next to you. You turned and seen it was Evan a young guy, about your age, that a crush on you. You felt bad for him because you and Daryl had been together since before the farm fell before your time at the prison. “Hot day out huh?” He asked wiping sweat off his brow, he looked at you and ran his thumb across your brow, a shiver went down your spine. You nodded and stepped away from him, “It’s always hot in Georgia,” you chuckled.

“Probably because it’s full of women as pretty as you,” you blushed at his kind words, and giggled like a school girl “Thank you Evan.” He ran his fingers up your arm, and laid his hand of your shoulder, a gentle gesture that if it was Daryl it would drive you absolutely crazy. “No need to thank me, thank yor parents for making such a beautiful daughter,” your blush grew deeper across your cheeks and he beamed at you. Little did you know Daryl was standing with ear shot, he growled. Stomping off in the other direction, you turned and seen Daryl stomping off away from you, and you shrugged it off. You laughed again laid your hand on his chest, pushing him back as he got closer to you, “You’re too kind Evan, but I have to go find Glenn, he was supposed to relieve me of watch 20 minutes ago, and I’m hot from the sun,” you chuckled at him, he wiggled his eye brows at you “Nah it’s just you not the sun.” You walked away and headed toward your and Daryl’s shared cell.

As you got in the cell you were slammed up again the cold stone wall, and before you could scream a calloused hand covered your mouth. “You belong to me” you were startled by this sudden outburst, but then it dawned on. He was jealous of Evan, you smirked against his hand. He removed his hand, “I didn’t know I belonged to anyone,” you said in defiance. Daryl pressed your back against the wall, “You belong to me!” he said in a stern voice, you were soaked at his dominance. You shivered as his slide his fingers up your arm and latched his lips to your neck. “Your arms, your neck, you cheeks…” he kissed your cheeks “mine.” Your body quivered against him, “your lips,” he kissed you roughly, “mine.” He kissed you more and pulled away, leaving you to feel empty, and full of desire, a look that reflected in his eyes. “Strip” you didn’t need to be told twice, and in an instance you were naked in front of him. His cock hardening at the sight of your bare breasts and the slick glimmer on your legs. He had you soaked and dripping. Just with his words, his actions nearly sent you over the edge. He pushed you against the wall again, cupping your cunt in his large hand sliding his fingers between your folds, roughly circling your clit. You squirmed against him, it felt so good. His other hand made its way to your hair and he pulled back, tilting your head back, exposing your neck to him, he kissed it, sucking greedily at the flesh, leaving little marks. “Now everyone will know you’re taken,” he whispered harshly into your ear. “Now hold still,” you stood stock still, as he forced his fingers into your hungry snatch. “You’re eager today kitten,” he purred, roughly going in and out of your cunt, your legs were shaking and you were close to much needed release when his ripped his fingers from you. You whimpered at the loose of fullness. He grabbed your hair and pulled you forward, forcing you again, “You’re gonna learn who you belong to!” he ordered pulling his pants down, his cock bouncing forward in front of you face, you licked your lips. And took the tip into your mouth, Daryl groaned as you slid your tongue around the head expertly, his knees buckled when you took more of his length into your mouth and sat down on to the bed, you took as much of his cock into your mouth as you could. He shuttered, as he was close to cumming, you pulled off of him with a coy smile on your lips, you stood and sat down on his lap, rubbing your slick folds against his wet cock. It twitched against you, and Daryl latched onto your nipple as you guided his cock into your waiting snatch. He filled you completely, you bit into his shoulder as he thrusted into you. The feeling magical. You wanted to scream you bit down hard, and Daryl groaned, laying down on the bed, letting you ride him, you swirled your hips and his bucked matching your pace, you both were panting loudly. “Scream my name kitten, let them know who gets to please you!” Daryl demanded. You let out a loud scream as you came. You rode out your orgasm, Daryl bucked roughly and soon came after you. You sighed, laying down on his chest, him still inside you. You’re breathing sporadically, Daryl breathing heavily under you.

“I love you,” he breathed, if this is what jealous Daryl was like, you needed to get him jealous more often, you smiled and kissed him lightly, “I love you too Daryl,” you cuddled into him.

Jokers Daughter Imagine: To The Rescue

Request: Can you do one where the daughter gets hurt and the joker comes to her rescue please?

@misaosouen

thank you for the request! :)

//////

“What are you going to do to stop me huh?!” you screamed at your as you put the finishing touches on your makeup. The two of you had been yelling at each other for almost an hour. He kept you locked up in the house like a prisoner, you wanted to go out with your friends and live a little.

The Joker threw his head back and cackled, he was impressed with your sass and spirit but wasn’t going to give up easy. You stood up and marched towards your bedroom door to leave and he leaped in front of it to block you. 

“Thiis whole rebellion thing is cute but you’re not going anywhere.” He crossed his arms with a grin still on his face “Gotham City at night is no place for my princess.” 

You could feel the tears starting up, you loved how he was protective but hated how to would turn to possessiveness. You held back your tears and turned to anger. You looked up at him with such rage in your eyes it made the grin fall off his face and he stood there jaw dropped. 

“Well I’m leaving, I’m going to have some freedom and if you don’t like it you’re just going to have to hit me like you did to mom!” You spat at his feeling your cheeks heat up from the anger. Your heart started pounding rapidly not believing the words left your mouth.

The clown prince dropped his arms to his side, he was dumbfounded. He didn’t know how to process his feelings. He had no idea you even saw that incident. You were just a toddler, he was drunk, him and Harley had been fighting about the squad and he lost control. He spent every day since it happened trying to make it up to his queen. Promising himself he would rather slit his own throat than do that again. He stared at his daughter, it felt like his heart had sank into his stomach, he never wanted you to think he was anything but the man of your dreams. Does she really think I’d ever hurt her? I’d tear apart anyone who did. He started breathing heavily and creeping out of your way not taking his eyes off of you.

He wanted to take you in his arms and hug you and never let you go. He wanted to keep you away from all the filth in the world but he felt like he couldn’t even breath right let alone move anymore. You looked up at him and immediately felt a wave of guilt. You knew how badly the incident scared both your parents, how your father hated and tore himself apart over it but you used it anyway. You used it to get what you wanted and you felt terrible. Not knowing what to do with your feeling either you just left. You wanted to leap into his arms but you just left. He’ll never forgive you for that. How could you say that to him. You thought to yourself as you walked out the front door and stepped into the purple lamborghini. The Joker didn’t even notice you driving away in his prized car. You felt numb as you drove to meet your friends.

You pulled up to the the spot at the park where you friends were sitting, you rolled down the window and called for them to get in.

“No fuckin way!” one of them screamed “(Y/N) you got the lambo?” 

“How the hell did you talk the joker into that?” the other asked

“Long story, just pile in as best you can I need a joy ride desperately.” The three of you situated yourself and you pressed on the gas. One friend turned up the radio as loud as it went and you all sang not caring how fast you were going. You rolled down the windows to feel the wind in your hair, wanting to forget everything. You raced around the city unafraid. You felt confident there would be no trouble, everyone probably assumed you were your father driving. The whole world knew when the purple lambo was out there could only be one driver and not to mess with that driver. Every person except one. The three of you quickly silenced when you felt the pounding on the top of the car.

The Joker paced around the house growling and shooting holes into the walls. How could she think that? How how how how how The voices in his head were getting louder and louder. She knows I love her that I never would harm a single gorgeous lock on her head. She knows doesnt she? She has to. He was getting more frantic. How could I let her go? How can she know I wouldn’t hurt her if I let her go out in this city. stupid stupid clown freezing up and letting her walk out. Letting her beat you down like that. The Joker searched his pockets for his keys, they were gone. He looked out the window and saw the driveway empty. He growled even louder.

“Frost!” he screamed and it echoed through the house. “Get me a car, we have to leave now!” He walked to the back door and by the time he was outside Frost had pulled with the car they used to do their heists

“We going to the bank boss?” Frost asked pulling away from the house.

“No… we’re going after the lambo.” He pulled out his phone and pressed on the tracker, he couldn’t be too careful with his favorite toy, and showed it to Frost who shook his head and sped up.

You tried to keep control of the car, you saw the black cape fly past the window every time you turned. 

This was the last thing you expected tonight. You tried to stick your head out the window to show him you weren’t the Joker. Your friends were holding onto the dashboard for dear life screaming as the bat tried to cut through the top of the roof. 

“Hey batboy!” you screamed trying to get his attention. “Hey!” you kept one hand on the steering wheel and stuck the other one out tapping the top of the lambo with your ring to get him to look at you. “Batsy it aint the Joker!” He stopped working on the hood and glanced down at you. You could see the shock in his face. “That’s right you rat with wings I just borrowed this! What ya gonna take us in for speeding?” you laughed at the bat causing him to lock up. He recognized the laugh, it was just like your fathers.

You and the bat both snapped out of your thoughts when you heard the screeching behind you. Frost was right on your tail and you saw your father stick a gun out the window and fire at the bat. He ducked down punched a hole into the roof on the spot he was working away at. He grabbed your friends by their shoulders pulling them out one through the top and one through the passenger window. They screamed and kicked trying to get out of his grasp but he was too strong. You tried to reach up and grab their feet but the bat shot away up into the air. By the time you gained control of the wheel again you crashed through the railings. You went sailing into the harbor. 

The Joker screamed at Frost to slam on the brakes. He jumped out of the car still firing at the bat before he disappeared into the night. He ran to the edge and screamed your name but all he saw was the tail lights disappear under water. The voices in his head started to scream and it felt like daggers through his skull. He couldn’t lose you, As he took his jacket off he had flash images of you in his head. Rocking you to sleep, stroking your hair, kissing your forehead. Then a flash of him slapping Harley and what your face must have looked like. What you must have felt. He wasn’t going to disappoint you again. 

He felt the cold water wash over his pale skin and it knocked him out of his mind and he was focused solely on swimming after you. He reached the car and saw you passed out over the wheel. He had a brief thought about how much he would make the bat pay for this. He grabbed you by the arms and pulled you out into his chest in one swift movement. He wrapped his arm around you and used the other to reach for the surface. When the air touched his face he took a deep breath and swam to the bed of rocks underneath the bridge and laid you on your back. He check your pulse and you weren’t breathing. He looked up to wear the car had smashed through the railing and yelled for Frost in a desperate voice neither one of them had heard before. He performed CPR on you and in between breaths he laid his head on your chest hoping to hear a heartbeat. He couldn’t tell if it was water or tears running down his face but he wiped them away nonetheless so he could see your face. You looked just like your mother. I don’t deserve either of them he thought, how could something so innocent and beautiful love me?

He closed his eyes and pulled your head onto his lap convinced it was over. he wrapped his arms under your legs pulling you closer to him in the fetal position. He howled like a wild animal as Frost ran to the both of you. He looked down at his feet sad and terrified, what the hell is going to happen now.

You slowly opened your eyes to see purple. You reached for it and tugged. It was your fathers shirt. You saw his head shoot up and he looked at you wide eyed. You coughed up water and pushed yourself out of his tight grasp to get some air and breathed heavily. Frost let out a sigh and loosened his tie in the background, relieved he was going to keep his life. You reached for your fathers hand and he grabbed it gently.

“Daddy…” you coughed struggling to breath “Im sorry im so sorry what I did… and the car” you coughed harder and he crawled over to you to rub your back. He grinned at you for keeping humor in the situation.

“Shhhh shh please princess” he intertwined his fingers with your and lifted up your hand to kiss it. “Never say sorry to me again you can do no wrong. I will spend eternity making everything up to you.” You looked up at him and saw the sincerity in his eyes. It took you by surprise for a moment, for the Joker to show something like this it must not have been easy. 

“And making everything up to mom” you smiled gently at him

“And mom” he shook his head understanding he had work to do.

You crawled into him and rested your head on his chest. “I love you no matter what ya know.” He didn’t say anything else, just hugged you tighter and kissed the top of your head. Shes mine again. Im never letting my princess go.

psa for college freshman

hey, whats up, hello! so you’re gonna be a freshman and you’re probably moving in real soon, and you might be excited but also nervous, not to worry i got you! here are some tips and tricks and general advice based on my own experience. 

okay so step by step:

MOVE IN

okay so this is easily the most stressful thing about the first week of school. you gotta get all of your stuff into a tiny dorm if it’s a big room i am literally so jealous my dorm was like a prison so don’t freak out, stay cool and pack efficiently!

  • try not to overpack, it’s really easy to believe you’ll need everything you’re bringing but trust me you won’t even look at half of it
    • a good tip for this is, if you don’t use it at home, don’t bring it to school! (plus it’s really easy to just buy stuff you need on amazon so don’t forget that that’s an option too)
  • if you’re going to a school that deals in snow, DON’T bring that stuff (jackets/hats/boots/etc) with you when you move in. if you know you’re going to go home for a weekend before the snow sets in, definitely leave it at home and bring it with you later!
  • let your parents/guardians/friends/family help you move in. it might not seem like a big deal, but letting them help you will make them feel better. and if you don’t like how they arrange things, let it be! you have all semester to rearrange and settle in, they only have this one day, so just let them have it! also don’t forget to thank them when they leave!

ROOMMATES

ah yes, the wonderful concepts of roommates. i was lucky my freshman year, but some people aren’t

  • try and connect with them via facebook/school emails/phone, settling things like are you gonna share a mini fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and how you’re gonna decorate (if you’re into that) will help when you finally settle into your room
  • definitely go over ground rules once you’re all unpacked and settled in. my dorm had us go over a list of questions, come to an agreement, and sign it in case there were any future conflicts. cover things like: 
    • is it okay to have my friends sit at your desk or on your bed when you aren’t there?
    • how should we handle overnight guests?
    • do you want me to give you a heads up if i have friends coming over?
    • 100% agree to give each other a heads up on parents coming to your room
    • sharing food?
    • cleaning responsibilities
    • definitely definitely give each other a copy of your class schedule, and if you have classes at the same time maybe you can agree to make sure you’re both awake at the right time!
  • you don’t have to be bff’s with your roommate, sometimes it turns out that way and sometimes it doesn’t. what you do need to be is open and honest with your roommate. your year will be miserable (especially if you can’t switch roommates) if you don’t communicate with each other. don’t be afraid to tell them if something is bothering you. if you’re to nervous to do that or don’t like confrontation, talk to your RA or RD

so now that we got all that out of the way, here are some general tips about social things:

  • that whole keep your door open and people will come talk to you think is a load of bs. me and my roommate did that for weeks and no one came in. everyone is just waiting for someone else to take that chance. so go into peoples rooms and ask them if they wanna grab lunch/dinner! walk around and poke your head in their room! it might be awkward as hell but at least you’re trying :)
  • go to all (or as many) dorm activities as you can! this allows you to meet more people too even if the event is really dumb, at least show up. you always have the option to leave!
  • go to club meetings! even if you aren’t sure you want to stay in the club. it’s much harder or maybe just more awkward to join when you’re an upperclassmen, so try and get those roots down as soon as you can
  • that being said, you can always leave a group without any hard feelings. people do it all the time, so don’t be scared that once you go to one meeting you’re stuck in the group forever
  • don’t let anyone tell you that as a freshman you can’t get involved. if you want to, you can. there is absolutely nothing stopping you. you might have to work a bit harder but i know you can do it!
  • sometimes freshman year can suck, or at least have it’s moments. don’t give up. everything gets infinitely better as time goes one, i promise. if you’re having a tough time or feel isolated or overwhelmed, reach out to someone, a parent, friends from home, an old teacher, anyone really! don’t give up, things might get tough, but you ARE strong and you WILL get through it
