Oooh can you write about the reader surprising Gabe with the news that she's pregnant ( I don't mind how you do it) ❤

((So….saw this figurine…and was like…I could see like gifting Gabe this and…it snowballed from there http://www.bowbrookstudios.co.uk/graphics/1375.jpg ))

‘I have a surprise for you. Our room, 6 PM sharp. Got it?’

‘Yea yeah. See you then.’

‘Love you, grumpy.’

‘Love you too, ditzy.’

Excited butterflies fluttered around in your stomach as you placed your phone down, fingers unconsciously settling onto your lower abdomen. A giddy grin tugged at your lips as your hands gently smoothed over the area, over the baby, your baby. Dr. Villeneuve had told you that you were seven weeks along after you had gone in requesting an antiemetic for the ‘stomach bug’ you thought you had picked up from a mission in Seoul. While the doctor had started the paperwork to have you transferred to administrative and desk duties, you asked for a short hold so that you could inform Gabriel of the information before the temporary transfer landed on his desk. That was yesterday.

Today you had taken a day of personal time and ventured into Geneva; picking up items for tonight’s special surprise for the man. Groceries for dinner, a pregnancy test, as well as a gift box and a special surprise you had stumbled upon on your way back to the headquarters. Reluctantly you pulled your hands away from the bulge that was beginning to distend from your lower stomach and ran them over the wrapped gift box. You had chosen to encase the surprise in his favorite colors; black wrapping paper, silver ribbons and a giant deep purple bow placed at the top right hand corner of the box. Was it a bit overdramatic? Maybe. But so were they and any good news deserved to be celebrated in a grandiose way. Especially this.

Glancing at your phone you stared at the numbers that blinked back at you. 4:12 PM. Nodding your head you rolled up the sleeves of your blouse as you began the prep work for the dinner.


“Ah! Gabe? Stop stop stop! Don’t move!”

You hurriedly picked up the bowl of hand tossed salad and placed it on the table next to the feta and spinach crusted salmon, turning on the heel of your foot and jogging towards the door. You couldn’t hide the giddy grin that spread across your face as you caught sight of Gabriel, the man sniffing the air slightly, brow furrowed. Stopping in front of him, you watched the expression on his face change as he caught sight of you, his mildly confused look shifting into a small, surprised smile. You had decided to spruce up your appearance while the salmon cooked; you had changed into a soft pink midi dress, an apron still tied loosely around your waist. You had even applied a bit of makeup, a sweep of gloss across your lips, eyeliner and mascara on your eyes, a naturally excited blush on your cheeks. Fishing your phone from the apron’s front pocket, you pulled it out and glanced at the time before giving a hearty nod. 5:46 PM.

“Good job”, you praised taking a half step forward and giggling softly when Gabriel opened his arms up for you.

You moved into his embrace, humming happily as you were enveloped by his warmth, your arms wrapping tight around him. It felt like you were practically buzzing with excitement, Gabriel dipping his head down and pressing a kiss to the top of your head. He still smelt like his cologne from this morning, dressed in his dark slacks and hoodie, the beanie pulled down over his head of loose curls.

“Dressed up and dinner”, Gabe murmured against the top of your head pulling back just enough so he could look down at you. Your heart melted as his eyes connected with yours, a tender sweetness in his gaze as he stared at you. These were the moments that you absolutely adored; the way the Gabe could look at you and make it feel like you were the center of the universe, mirthful warmth filling you from the top of your head to the soles of your feet, every part of you feeling completely enraptured by him. He would be such a good father. That thought made even more butterflies fill your insides. “What’s the occasion, cariño?”

“I have a surprise for you”, you practically hummed, standing on your tiptoes and placing a soft kiss against his jawline. Pulling away from his arms, you gently laced your hands with his and pulled Gabe further into the apartment. “Ta-da! My specialty salmon and freshly tossed salad. But surprise first!”

Glancing over your shoulder you watched Gabe’s brows shoot up in surprise before the dark skinned man’s expression morphed into one of pure adoration and curiosity. Walking in front of him, you moved to the other side of the dining room table and pulled out your chair for him. You waited until he was sitting to slide the black wrapped gift in front of him, your face burning darker as your heart began to speed up. You gnawed slightly on your bottom lip as he made a show of taking his time, his glance and smirk that he threw your way making that obvious. You pouted briefly before he assented, the soft, rich baritone of his chuckle sending shivers up and down your spine. Your hands laid against your lower abdomen again, whether to quell the explosion of butterflies or subconsciously touch where the true surprise laid, you didn’t know.

“A card”, Gabe questioned as he pulled off the lid, tissue paper hiding the other gifts that laid in wait. Your heart was thundering in your chest as you watched him pick up the handwritten card, the pregnancy test taped to the back of it. “Let’s see… ‘Owl bet you’ll be excited by this!’…really Y/N?”

“Keep reading!”

“So–oh my god–so have a hoot and rip the rest of this paper up”, Gabriel finished with a snicker, glancing at your blushing face from over the card. You motioned at the box, trying to contain your giddiness as he easily pulled the crinkling tissue paper away. “You really are something else querida…you know th—-”

It felt like your heart might burst as he finally tore through the black and purple tissue paper, his hands stilling as he looked from the gift back up to you and back. Your smile was practically splitting your face as you watched his reaction to the figurines you had purchased. He had only torn half the paper off, only revealing one of the finely sculpted and painted barn owls, the male. Gabriel’s love of owls was no secret to you, on missions he could name various species of the birds, securing dates at local sanctuaries and even having a picture of a snowy owl as the background to his cell phone. His hands quickly tore through the rest of the paper quickly, jaw going slack as he stared at the figurine you had given him. The base of the clay item was made to look like a three, the dips and hollows in the barks expertly sculpted and painted to look like an oak tree. Two adult barn owls stood on the left and right branch of the base; black eyes, tan and white feathered body and faces looking so lifelike that a slight nudge might make them take off. In between the adults sat one chick, feathers cream colored and fluffy, the clay baby bird somehow looking soft as its real world counterpart.

“You like it”, you questioned only to squeak as Gabe’s arms wrapped around your center, yanking you into his lap. He was grinning as he pressed multiple kisses against the back of your head and side of your cheek. You giggled breathily, arms resting over his as he nuzzled into the back of your neck, hand moving into the scraps of discarded paper and finding the small stick that had accidentally been tossed to the side.

“I love it”, Gabriel stated quickly, honestly, one of his hands lifting up and gently stroking the case. He was clearly enthralled by the statue, but with this one last piece it would pull the rest of this together.

“I…I have one last thing for you”, you stated quickly, the words tumbling out of your lips quickly. You grabbed his hand with your empty one before dropping the pregnancy test in his hand. He lifted it so that he could see it over your shoulder, freezing perfectly still as his eyes read the small digital display. Giddiness welled up in your chest as you felt him begin to turn you in his lap, his eyes meeting yours as you tried to resist the quiver that wanted to take over your vocal chords. “Surprise!”

“En serio”, he asked, voice breathless, dark eyes shimmering with unshed tears. You nodded, your own eyes prickling as tears threatened to fall from your own eyes, dipping your head forward to press against his.

He was shaking, his lips crashing into yours as emotions overcame him, his arms wrapping around you bruisingly tight before quickly releasing you, his hands moving to your abdomen. He pulled away from your lips, a few tears rolling down his cheeks as he stared and touched your stomach, thumbs moving in slow circles near your belly button. Your hands lifted to his cheeks, pushing his tears away as you nuzzled against him. Children were dreamy talk to the both of you, neither one of you genuinely knowing if you could get pregnant. The both of you had been exposed to acrid, volatile chemicals, various physical injuries and even slight radiation. Combined with Gabriel’s genetic modifications through SEP, there were so many unknowns that could possibly prevent it and yet…

“How many weeks”, Gabriel asked when he found his voice again, the rich baritone thick with emotion. His large hands still rested against your middle, the warmth of his skin easily bleeding through the fabric of the apron and dress.   

“Seven weeks”, you answered instantly, giving a watery giggle as his eyes lifted up to you in shock. You could see another question forming in his mind and answered it before he could ask. “I found out yesterday, the doc already has my paperwork ready to go…asked her to wait so I could surprise you with the news.”

Gabriel gave a slight bark of laughter as he leaned his head up and pressed a hard kiss to your lips once more.

“Best fucking surprise ever.”

Hello everyone..

I wanted to talk about the SU backgrounds a little!! They’re very well designed and have pretty colors.. Take the one below!

^^^ This background has wonderful contrast. The blunt white with its subtle gradient at the bottom works nicely against the skyscape of darkness above. And to make stars interesting, purples and blues are thrown in! We are given a nice spotlight effect on our main characters.

^^^ This one also has great contrast… but the scheme goes together so nicely as well! The cool blues work with the cool and warm purples/pinks in the gap there. As usual the designer(s) give more interest using little sparkly diamond details!

^^^ I believe this one is from “The Answer?” It makes good use of geometric designs and texture. We have cool dark blues below (pulling the foreground towards us), a warm orange spotlight on the mid ground which draws the eyes, then a bright and desaturated background full of mountains, which pushes them back.

^^^ Here is a great example of a well done midday/noon scheme! We can watch the cool colors in the first image become warmer and darker versions of those colors below. Light blue-grey becomes a dark red-grey. The orange hills all but disappear in the second image as they become dark and washed out. The change between these two backgrounds works so well!


I hope you enjoyed this! The SU backgrounds and colors really are lovely

Forget everything you know about love

Husbands!Jikook, 10k of angsty crack + fluff fluff fluff 

For we cannot love something we do not remember, but maybe forgetting was the solution to all of Jungkook’s problems.

A/N: From this request; hope you like it!


A left, another left, a right, and then a left. Or was it left, right, left, left?

Jungkook doesn’t have time to worry about that as he races down the hall, each tick of the clocks in the hospital, each quickening beat of his heart feeling like it might be the last. Like it might be too late.

Room two twenty-four, two twenty-five… screw it.

Jungkook bursts through the door a millisecond before he could process that it was indeed the correct number, but is given confirmation by the figure seemingly drowning beneath the white sheets.

He was pale. An IV drip attached to one arm. There were a few patches of faint yellow from the bruising. But amidst the faint beeping in the background and the smell of disinfectants much too strong, he was still the same Jimin that Jungkook had always known.

“Jimin—” Jungkook cuts himself off, part of him afraid that he’d regret whatever tumbled out of his mouth in such a distraught state, and the other part of him not even knowing what to say.

Jimin, I’m so sorry…please don’t hate me.

Jungkook keeps his head bowed, avoiding the look of hatred that he expected from his husband.

“Um…hi?”

But as he looks up and sees that strangely empty look in Jimin’s eyes, he knows that something isn’t quite right.

“Jimin? Are you okay?”

“Yeah, I’m fine.” A pause that feels much too long. “Sorry, um, could you tell me who you are?” he asks, eyebrows furrowed and lips curling down into a frown. “Were you someone important to me?”

Let’s talk about TO’s increasingly Racist Narrative with the Mikaelsons and Marcel Gerard.

Disclaimer: This is VERY long. I’m putting most of it under the cut because of length. I thought about cutting it short but this is a topic that’s very important to me so I decided to not cut words.

So after Friday’s episode many viewers, especially black viewers were left with a very real feeling of discomfort following Elijah’s speech to Marcel. Because of that discomfort many of us have expressed how the narrative, and Elijah, has skewed into racism, an accusation that makes some viewers feel uncomfortable.

Here’s the truth though, in a way it should make some people uncomfortable. If you didn’t feel uneasy about the idea of racism in a narrative that you like then I would have to question some things about you. With that said, I’ve seen a lot more efforts to shut down discourse about the accusation or explain away the behavior many people find problematic than I’ve seen to actually understand it and why we might feel that way. That’s a problem, it’s a big problem when this discussion is something that’s actually very necessary for this show, and many TV shows. When writers take on the task of crafting a narrative that includes minority characters, there is a certain level of awareness and delicacy that many are going to expect then to have when it comes to these characters. When they offend their audience and mishandle the characters they have been entrusted with then they deserve to be taken to task for that. It doesn’t matter if the offense was intentional or unintentional. This is especially the case when you have a writing staff who pats themselves on the back for trying to be aware of social and racial issues that are currently at play in our society.

I personally don’t think that writers are obligated to treat every black character or every character from a marginalized group like a delicate flower that can’t be harmed in any way shape or form. That’s not what I’m talking about here. What I’m talking about is when you take characters from marginalized groups and carelessly handle them in a way that ends up pushing a racist narrative.To give an example, killing a black character doesn’t automatically make a narrative racist but pushing an idea where a black character is consistently targeted by white characters, denied humanity and is treated as disposable flesh then that is indeed a racist narrative. That kind of dynamic has historically been an issue in this world and it is still an issue. We can discuss whether the racism that seeps into our fiction a little too often is intentional, and I don’t personally believe it always is, but we have to acknowledge that it’s actually there first.

That’s why we need to talk about The Originals and Marcel.

What they did to Marcel in Friday’s episode, what they had Elijah say to him, and the narrative that built up to that moment was racist.

I’m really starting to feel like MCU fanatics work extra hard and put time and energy to convince themselves and others that the MCU is more progressive than the DCEU.

First off, I know I say this a lot, but I am of three marginalized groups. I’m Black, I’m a woman, and I’m queer. Growing up, DC always felt like a world I could be a part of, because, even before DCEU came about there were always a number of MOC and WOC within DC. Not only that, but DC actually confirmed that three of their most popular characters-Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, and Wonder Woman-are queer!

Now, I don’t find much wrong with Marvel, but admittedly, I never really followed Marvel all that much. I’m aware that there are characters of marginalized groups within Marvel, but I don’t feel like it’s to the same extent as DC. I am one of the fans that followed the television shows more than the comics themselves, and the three shows I remember from Marvel are Spiderman, X-Men, and Iron Man. The only WOC from any three of those shows is Storm.

My pet peeve is not only MCU fanatics acting like its been more progressive than DC, but that people actually believe it.

I’m sorry, but Sam Wilson, Rhodey, and Nick Fury are fun characters, but they exist only to move along the typically white cishet male protagonist. Black Widow is cool, but she was reduced to a love interest in AoU. It has only been recently we’ve been given Black Panther. This is a good thing, of course, and I’m excited about this, but I’m not going to give the MCU a pat on the back for dragging their feet like others seem to be doing. I’m also not going to say nothing when someone uses it as ammo against the DCEU.

The MCU is nearly ten years old and is just now giving us characters of color with their own developed story, and I’ve pretty much stopped hoping and caring for the idea of a Black Widow move (let’s face it, it’s never going to happen). The DCEU, however, is four years old. Wonder Woman is played by an Israeli actress, the Flash is being played by a Jewish queer actor, Cyborg has always been Black and is remaining Black, and Aquaman is played by a Polynesian actor. Suicide Squad had one of the most diverse casts ever in a comic book adaptation and made bank while other film makers believe casting people of diverse backgrounds is too risky.

Yet…even with all of this, it seems people are convinced the MCU is doing great things for representation when it seems they waited until they knew it was “safe” to acknowledge that not all super heroes have to be white cishet men.

I don’t want to give the impression that the MCU hasn’t been doing good things. I think, for example, it’s great that the love interest in the new Spiderman movie will be a Black girl when so often Black women/girls aren’t given that type of role, and I’m going to support it even though I’m kind of tired of Spiderman movies. It would just be nice if people would stop using MCU’s bare minimum to shit on DCEU’s genuine effort to be inclusive.

zagine  asked:

In terms of film adaptations, why is Tilda Swinton in Dr. Strange white washing but wanting to make Robin or Batgirl asian in the upcoming movies seen as a good thing? In fact people were mad that Dr. Strange wasn't given a POC actor, even though he's a white guy in the comics. ((Not trying to start a fight, just trying to understand))

Opportunities for POC actors are few and far between, or if they’re given they TEND to be background extras, criminals, or other negative stereotypes. They don’t tend to get main character roles or roles of much importance, so when opportunities arise to have positive examples of main characters played by POC… and they instead go with a white actor/actress, it’s a major setback.

Now some have argued before that those roles embodied stereotypes on their own and it’s certainly possible that that would be the case… but it’s still a positive role that could have gone to them and there’s a different argument to be made there and it wouldn’t be as much of a big deal if it was already on equal footing.

White actors have a CRAPTON of acting opportunities at the moment. Tilda Swinton playing the Ancient One would not have advanced her career in any way or done anything to break boundaries or fill a need that currently exists.

Now, as for Dr. Strange being a POC actor, that’s because there’s equally another stereotype that tends to occur - white person goes to foreign land and appropriates other culture/does something better than the natives who have known this stuff longer. It’s a kind of mindset that’s tied into imperialism and colonialism. See, there’s nothing about Dr. Strange, Danny Rand, Batgirl, or Robin that NECESSITATES them being white. Even in the case of Rand, being from a different culture than Kun Lun (and apologies, I haven’t seen Iron Fist, so I don’t know what the whole deal is there) does not mean he has to be white, either, since I’m sure whatever spiritualism and martial arts they employ there is not some racially-inherited trait, so any other person who lives in America or any other country probably exists in a different cultural context than that land and therefore could have achieved the same thing… except now getting a prominent acting role for someone who wasn’t just yet another white dude.

Other people can probably explain it even better than me and in more detail, sooo go nuts people. ^_^

Calling it Hope (2/?)

Part 1 

Summary: After learning some unexpected news, Abby Griffin struggles to hold the weight of the world on her shoulders while the man she loves remains in Polis. Trying to solve the various problems related to nuclear radiation is one thing, but keeping a secret from Marcus - at least until he returns - is another. 

A.K.A. -  the babyfic no one asked for that I wrote at midnight one night and then decided to continue. 

“Abby, you need to rest.”

Jackson’s suggestion was gentle but firm, pliable but backed with steel. As a doctor she knew there was truth to be found in it, and as an expecting mother she’d need to get her rest for both her health and her child’s. It had become obvious after Jackson’s tests that she’d no longer be adhering to her former “Chancellor Griffin” hours, burning the midnight oil until only smoke remained at the rosy dawn of a new day.

Yet she couldn’t force herself out of the med bay. Not yet.

“I’m fine, Jackson,” she insisted, eyeing the datapad in her hands. But her statement wasn’t quite strong enough to dispel her companion’s concern, nor was the yawn she tried to disguise only moments later helping convince him.

Abby-“ he started, softening his tone even further, but she interrupted.

“Give me one more hour,” she said, marveling at the ludicrousness of her situation. Not only had she gotten pregnant despite her use of a contraceptive chip, but now she was arguing with her assistant, on Earth, to let her have more time in Medical. And on top of it all, they only had two months…

Her gaze trailed down to her mostly-flat stomach, and she swallowed hard, shoving the bleak thought from her head. They’d figure something out. There was still hope. And Luna’s blood had given them the beginning of an answer, a few pieces to a puzzle they had yet to fully solve.

“Fine,” Jackson said, resigned. “Doesn’t Kane usually radio you to say goodnight at midnight, though?”

Abby frowned, eyebrows drawing together as she stared at rows of black numbers against a blindingly white background. “How do you know about that?”

Jackson smiled. “Your mood improves around eleven forty-five every night, without fail. John said he heard you talking to him one morning, so I just assumed he contacts you before you go to sleep.”

“He does,” Abby said after a beat, wondering how she and Marcus could be so discreet and yet so obvious. Part of her thought that even if they could communicate telepathically, Arkadia would somehow find out about it. Their private lives were never really private.

Jackson seemed to read her mind. “Have you told him yet?”

For a moment, the room was filled with the low beeps and faint humming of machines. Abby’s tongue felt like lead in her mouth, her heart sinking lower and lower as if caught in a whirlpool.

“Not yet,” she said. “I didn’t hear from him today. If we had talked this morning, I would have asked if he knew when he was coming home.”

anonymous asked:

Wait, there haven't been any good rom coms since the early 2000s? I"m intrigued & I feel like you have more to say here so please do? (only if you want of course)

Oh lord, anon, you have opened up one of my favorite cans of worms here, so um. The tl;dr is “fuck Nicholas Sparks and everything he stands for.” The longer version follows.

Basically, when’s the last time you saw a romcom in theaters? Not just something with a fun romance plot to back up the action, and definitely not a Nicholas Sparks Tragedy Porn Extravaganza, but a tropey nonsense-filled probably-extremely-embarrassing romcom (the loose criteria I tend to work on are that a romcom has to 1. be romance-focused 2. have lots of humor and silly situations and 3. have a happy ending)? The ones everyone makes fics based off of, basically. When’s the last time there was a You’ve Got Mail, a Notting Hill? Even The Proposal came out in 2009.

There are some movies with The Romcom Aura (The Intern, arguably How to Be Single), and plenty of romance-focused things (fucking Nicholas Sparks, fucking 50 Shades, etc.), but I don’t know what the last major romcom I can think of was.

Some are around, I’m sure! Probably some indie things are getting made, film companies that aren’t in every theater … but that’s the thing. Major companies have stopped making them, or at least stopped seriously advertising them. When they market to women, it’s non-romance comedies (WHICH I AM ALL FOR, I should say! I love Pitch Perfect and its ilk dearly and it’s important that women are not limited to romantic narratives) or damn Nicholas Sparks.

Romance is … I don’t know, a distasteful necessity to a lot of the entertainment industry, or at least it feels like it. Something that must be done ~for the women~ (”Toss in a romance for the chick on the superhero team, get the women to watch along with the real audience we want”). And in the broader culture too! How often do people get mocked for reading romance novels, how many jokes about them are there? How often are romance-focused movies talked about as ~chick flicks~ while men whine that their partners made them watch them? Given that, it’s no wonder the genre has quietly withered away in favor of more easily marketed ones (though I really have no idea how Sparks keeps getting movies made–maybe romance is okay if we don’t get any delusions about happiness?).

And I know that we don’t need more White Cishet Romances in this world. Maybe it should be an indie industry so there’s a little more freedom to make romcoms about people of every cultural and ethnic background, people from everywhere on the LGBT+ spectrum, people with disabilities … you all know the list, all the people who aren’t usually shown falling in love with lots of ridiculous banter and shenanigans to help them along rather than it being a Serious Movie About Serious Issues.

We need lightness and love just as much (if not more) as we need the latest gritty action flick. And yeah, the genre got pretty tired when it was withering. Some of the movies can be incredibly embarrassing to watch.

But I look at the lists of endearingly specific AUs that get thrown around in fandom and I think there could be hope for the romcom industry if the right people got their hands on it.

important information from the heathers musical UK workshop

-for starters it was utterly phenomenal
-Veronica’s vocal range was amazing and she was incredibly compelling as an actress
-JD was quite possibly the creepiest JD I’ve ever seen it was amazing. Meant to be Yours blew me away
-Martha was the cutest thing in this world and has the most brilliant voice and Kindergarten Boyfriend made me cry
-Heather McNamara was both tiny and adorable so there’s that continuity from the off-Broadway production right there. She played her as a bit of a follower when the Heathers were doing their mean stuff and less into it than the others (e.g. she was the last to turn away from Veronica at the party, only after everyone else had and Heather Chandler had looked at her)
-When Mac spat the pills out of her mouth it was a lot funnier to see up close, mainly because they just kept coming. She literally spent ten seconds just spitting pills out of her mouth
-Heather Chandler was the bitchy high school goddess of my dreams. She was incredible and even with the script looked like she was on top of everything. Unfortunately as the stage was like 2 metres wide there wasn’t enough room for Candy Store choreography but I have no doubt she would have been fierce
-There was definitely room for Drunk White Dancing in Big Fun though and it was hilarious
-Heather Duke really looked like someone I went to school with and she wasn’t given a head mic which is unfortunate because her voice was very strong. She slayed the hell out of Shine A Light Reprise
-Kurt and Ram in this version are the definitive Kurt and Ram for me, as much as I adore the originals. They were so incredibly funny and were in character every second you could see them, even when they were in the background
-Ms Fleming and Kurt and Ram’s dad’s got huge rounds of applause for their numbers and deservedly so
-The two female ensemble members (Emo Girl and Weed Girl) are my new otp they spent most of the time in the chorus songs chilling with each other, singing to each other, hugging each other etc. I love them.
-They replaced Blue with You’re Welcome so it depends on your opinion of those two songs if you think that’s a good or bad thing I guess
-Instead of a pig piñata they used a stuffed toy of George from Peppa Pig
-There was a new verse in My Dead Gay Son about gay penguins so I think we should embrace that
-Andy Fickman’s narration made the show honestly

Potential new additions to Heathers canon? (I can’t remember if they were mentioned in previous productions so here they are):
-Veronica was put in an advanced school/program at age 12 for six months and utterly hated it. By the time she came back to her old school all her old friends had grown apart from her - except Martha
-Heather Mac’s mum is implied to be an alcoholic
-I also think we should include Weed Girl and Emo Girl as part of the canon of Heathers because they were so good and are probably girlfriends

morguevampire  asked:

i really need to know if the shirt (black with white star on it) david wore last night at stage door (6.5.2017) is a Smashing Pumpkins or a David Bowie shirt. Either is fine but if I find out he likes the Smashing Pumpkins enough to buy a shirt I'm gonna explode bc HE IS THE BEST and MY LOVE FOR HIM HAS GROWN (which i thought was impossible)

Man, there’s like 10% of that shirt visible. You guys really aren’t throwing any softballs here.

Rolls up sleeves. Ok, ok I’m up for the challange. Let’s see what we got here.

It COULD be a Smashing Pumpkins shirt. But from what I’m seeing the white star is always under the “Zero” on their merch, so I think that’s the least likely.

It could also be a Bowie “backstar” shirt, although the scale is off, and I’d need to see it unzipped to confirm:

It could also be an off brand Homestarunner T-shirt.

But given the placement and scale of the star, and the fact that David has worn another shirt with a star on a black background back at the 2008 BRIT awards…

I think it MAY be a cheeky homage to his favorite footwear.

Or it could be that he just wants to make sure none of us forget his favorite role.

@softlams please enjoy this fic! You mentioned having a bad mental health week, and I feel that on a deep level so I thought I’d try to write you something. It probably won’t do much, but I hope it makes you a bit happy to read! 

It’s laflams, because I know you’ve written it (your vampire fic was very good, also very painful) but I don’t see it around too much. It’s also probably too long. Please enjoy anyways! It’s not proofread either, sorry, I just kind of started writing to see where it got me.

Keep reading

Hello! I stumbled upon your blog after reading the couple ring post! Regarding that, I think the chrome heart ring that similar to yeol's isnt the same as the one that polar light gave, because PL gave the one with black background, and the similar with yeol's is just the black version of it? And do you mind giving out the 'chanbaek timeline' you mentioned before? Keep loving baekyeol <3333 this lovely couple is unstoppable. Have a nice daay!

Hi ^_^ 

about that ring.. yes.. the chrome heart ring given by polar light are not matching with yeol.. before polar light gave baekhyun the ring, baekhyun already have another ring he wore.. he also wore it during their recent Nature Republic Fansign (where his ring went missing).. 

the one polar light gave baekhyun have black background and silvery white chrome heart design one it (the top ring on his finger) .. meanwhile the one on chanyeol’s pinky finger has all white/silvery background and greyish chrome heart design on it.. this design matched baekhyun’s ring (the one not given by polar light) which are also silver background but with black/darker chrome heart design on it ( the bottom ring on his finger).. 

about chanbaek time line.. lol.. this thing i  just come out with my fellow chanbaek shipper who closely monitor chanbaek (we’re not sasseng don’t worry..lol) we are just ninja.. hahah..

p/s : this is what I THINK.. it can be false.. it can be true.. no one knows for sure besides chanbaek themselves.. its gonna be long, so brace yourself with my delulu writing..

this is purely chanbaek.. don’t like chanbaek..? don’t read.. i don’t want my inbox blown with hate.. thank you ^_^ ..

lets begin..

if you realized, when chanbaek first meet, they got close in just one night.. kai confirms this..

Kai said during 120605 EXO-K joynews24 interview : At first I was a bit surprised, Baekhyun joined us very late but he became close with Chanyeol in just one night..

i think chanyeol and baekhyun love each other as soon as they see each other..lol.. but seriously look at them..

The fans who attendedBaekhyun’s birthday party said Chanyeol first opened the party by making aspeech indicating  ; “This is Baekhyun, my roommate and we are in a loving relationship.”

121126 Chanyeol’s birthday party Baekhyun said that when he just entered SM, Chanyeol was the first person to walk towards him, and after having eye contact for 10 seconds, they had the feeling of “That’s him!”. Anyway, the two could really get along very well. The other members told them to get married. Baekhyun said “Umma! I’m going to get married” 

the picture below was during MAMA Era.. and these two are surely chanyeol and baekhyun.. only baekhyun have that hair colour during MAMA and that guy, thats chanyeol.. look at the ear..! i think they are together since the first time they meet but they are in the state of secrecy.. 

you can see that baekhyun actually feels uncomfortable when chanyeol holds him and chanyeol kinda hesitant(?) with his hold.. so i think by this time they are scared people gonna know about them..

during MAMA and History, they are in good term.. just being careful.. not going overboard with their fanservices.. the still in good term when they record Happy Camp on 130604 recording.. 


however they had a fight during Wolf promotion fansign event on 14th June 2013.. 

https://www.facebook.com/EXOglobal12/posts/551690534873581

in this link there are parts where chanyeol and baekhyun refuses to reply to any request from fans relate to chanbaek..lets face it.. isn’t chanbaek started as just a fanservice made by the company..? so why are they suddenly refused to do anything with it..? aren’t they afraid of the company..? this is during Wolf Era.. they are promoting Wolf at that time..

 what happened between them until the choose to ignore the fan’s requests..?? and just 10 days difference with their lovey dovey recording of Happy Camp.. i think during that time, something happened.. maybe that time Baekhyun already set to have a girlfriend.. or their company already asked them to stop.. 

i think chanbaek already have feelings for each other when they first meet but they are restricted by people ( their company maybe.?).. they even wrote songs together, practice duet together (the things about their duets is, it never went on-air..except the Love Song on 130808 Youngstreet„,)

Can you imagine, practicing this song, with just the two of them.. while looking at each other..? and why Baekhyun have that look on his face..?? maybe throughout the practice and spending time together make them closer again and they started to ignore what people said.. 

Do you know who is the first person that posted Baekhyun a Happy Birthday on Instagram..? nope.. its not Sehun.. its Chanyeol.. but why he deleted that cake post..? Baekhyun’s birthday cake was chanyeol’s FIRST ever post in his IG.. 

in my opinion, Baekyeon already set up long before February.. why..? because, out of nowhere suddenly Chanyeol said Chen as his new soulmates.. i emphasizes “NEW”… he didn’t say “my soulmates” he said “new soulmates”.. that means he still remember that he has a soulmates before..and it is Baekhyun.. the guy sitting infront of him.. 

Chanyeol called Baekhyun as his “number 1 soulmate” in [MISC] 130814 - STAR CAST : “Trend’s Core ‘EXO Life of Research’..

look at Baekhyun.. he didn’t smile at all.. thats Baekhyun’s jealous face.. when Baekhyun is jealous he will stare at distance and his lips gonna be thinner as he curl his lips.. and i think one of the earliest member who knows about chanbaek is Kyungsoo.. and kyungsoo just look at at chanyeol with straight face too.. 

after this interview, they shoot for EXO Showtime.. didn’t anyone realizes that chanyeol didn’t have much skinship with Baekhyun unlike with the other members..?? in showtime, if you look clooosseeeely you will noticed that chanbaek have many scene where they are together being cut off.. during the sunrise episode, actually Chanyeol and Baekhyun stand next to each other but it never shows in the show.. 

(sorry i got into EXOST..but i always wanna talk about this just no one asked.. haha..lol)

there are only two person wearing that white jacket at the time.. its suho and chanyeol..the editing of exo showtime is very weird.. why..? chanyeol stands next to baekhyun but not one shot where they are standing next to each other..

see..? the most left is baekhyun and who is taller than baekhyun and wearing that white jacket..? its chanyeol.. but exo showtime’s crew make sure the shot are not clear.. why..? i think some inside connections are influential here.. 

and this one.. did you noticed that in the real show, (at least from what i watched) the leg part are completely covered but big ass words at the bottom..

Chanbaek are being very fearless when Baekhyun suddenly come to Roommate.. 

when baekhyun come to Roommate house, many of their moments and interactions got cut out by SBS.. i have another theory about Roommate (here)..

ok i’m gonna talk a bit about Baekyeon.. they said Baekyeon starts dating in February right..? Anyone who knows me know that i don’t believe in Baekyeon.. i believe that Baekyeon are not dating and are a stage up thing by SM.. idk.. i can be wrong.. but thats what i believe (because there are just too many things that are shady about them..idk).. don’t you think its weird, that SM revealed Baekyeon EXACTLY one day after baekhyun came to Roommate..?? read my chanbaek in Roommate post and you’ll know why i said its very weird..

when Baekyeon revealed, Baekhyun looks like a wreck.. have you seen the picture of him go out from music show..? hurmm.. i dont remember what broadcast..

after Baekyeon revealed, we Chanabek shippers are kinda depress and thought that Chanbaek are really broken.. but Chanbaek proof us wrong.. Chanyeol still with Baekhyun in the airport like he always did.. 

they lost the laugh on their faces but they still together.. thats enough for me.. because after that they are normal again.. it took time but they are ok again tho.. after this, chanyeol starts being very obviously close with kyungsoo.. he starts making moments with kyungsoo, he choose kyungsoo.. (i don’t hate kyungsoo, no no.. i love him.. i just say that chanyeol become obviously close with kyungsoo..)..

i can see Baek look so hurt.. i think i have the gifs but maybe in my phone sorry.. 

there is one event that happened and the timeline are perfect.. its 1140719 TLP Shanghai.. 

first Chanyeol posted “Love is a losing games” lyrics in his IG.. a song about the pain in love (at least thats what in the lyrics chanyeol posted)..

Few hours after that (when they are in china) Baekhyun, who keep silent about the Baekyeon thing suddenly posted an “apology” letter in his IG..

after this letter was posted in 4 in the morning few hours after that he deleted it.. i dont know why he delete it, maybe he got a lot of hate because of it, but in my thought that letter actually just for EXO-L and also Chanyeol.. he talk about misunderstanding.. what misunderstanding..? that he dating tae..? thats not a misunderstanding , right..? about he didn’t love his fans and betrayed them..? we all know how much baekhyun loves his fans.. he used to be no.1 in fanservice @ fanlove.. so what is the misunderstanding..? if he really wanna make his fans forgive him why he didn’t posted on the fancafe..? or somewhere many other people gonna read it..? and why deleted it..???? only baekhyun knows.. i think he just want chanyeol and people who believe in them read that and after making sure chanyeol read it, he delete it.. who knows.. it might be true.. 

after that chanyeol posted another thing.. exactly few hours after baekhyun deleted his letter.. heart shaped leaf.. hurmmmmm… 

feeling better chanyeollie..??

after the apology letter incident you know what happened..? TLP Shanghai.. what so special about TLP Shanghai..? well.. after few other TLP conducted, chanbaek had been very distance.. they are there, but there are no actual moments between them.. until Shanghai..

in TLP Shanghai, this happened.. they finally have real moments.. real contact.. and chanyeol seems happy again.. 

few month after that, they are very happy on stage.. off stage.. everywhere.. Chanyeol who stops being nice to Baekhyun after the scandal, suddenly being a prince charming again..

chanyeol again being the charming boyfriend material him with baek (baek only) by taking baekhyun’s bag and push it for him.. awww.. so sweet.. ^_^..

and they still do their little “love sign” just between them.. isn’t baek already have a girlfriend at this moment..???? look at their smiling faces.. 

they still love each other even after so many rough obstacle come their way.. and i hope they can always love each other forever and people just stop disturbing them..  


Here are the clearer timeline of all this..

  • 4 June 2013 - Happy Camp recording ( they do the lovesign)
  • 14 June 2013 - Wolf Fansign (fight?)
  • August 2013 - Growl
  • 8 August 2013 - EXO Youngstreet (duet with weird expression)
  • October 2013 - EXO Showtime
  • ** Feb 2014 - BY said to start dating (EXOST still in recording)
  • 17 June 2014 - Baek come to Roommate
  • 18 June 2014 - Baekyeon revealed
  • 17 July 2014 - TLP Shanghai
  • 15 August 2014 - SM Town 2014 (another lovesign)


at the end.. no matter what we think, only chanyeol, baekhyun and SM knows what actually is between them.. me and my friend can spend hours talking about chanbaek..lol.. we come out with many theories, and look from many perspectives.. hehe..

that’s the thing about me and my friend.. we love chanbaek but we don’t blindly loving them.. we have our reasons (plausible reasons) why we think chanbaek is real.. we look from many perspectives.. we don’t look in one sole reason and one sole perspective only.. 

Again i will say this.. THIS IS JUST MY OPINION.. I USE “MY OPINION” IN THIS ENTRY.. you can believe it or not i don’t care..

What do you think of the "notice me senpai" syndrome?

//I’m gonna assume this is for mun, so! My thoughts. I apologize if they’re all over the place, I’ve only had one cup of coffee and my brain is still dead. 

//While it’s an important aspect to Akutagawa’s character (I mean… his desire to have Dazai acknowledge him is a huge motivating factor for a lot of what he does) I think the fandom focuses on the wrong angle of it more often than not. Namely: interpreting Akutagawa as someone incapable of thinking and acting with any sort of intelligence in favor of ‘being bat shit for the sake of proving himself’ and generally pushing this sort of… one dimensionally obsessive bitch boy persona as who Akutagawa is. 

//Basically: Canon Akutagawa doesn’t have notice me senpai syndrome; fanon Akutagawa does. 

//And while I get why people joke about it (I mean, I’ve done so and continue to do so sometimes and I slip that into some of the more light-hearted interactions and writings; it’s fandom) I really wish the substance to it that’s in the source material carried over a little more heavily into fanon interpretations of Akutagawa’s character. 

//I think given Akutagawa’s background, his ideals, the interactions and experiences that he had with Dazai when he was in the Port Mafia and the way Dazai treats him after they come across each other again, it’s not? Surprising? That Akutagawa holds Dazai’s opinion of him so highly and he’s so intensely driven to seek and prove himself to Dazai. 

//I feel it’s less the core of his personality/existence, however, and more a symptom of his overall ‘survival of the fittest, if you’re not strong enough to survive you don’t deserve to live’ Darwinist, black/white way of thinking. Akutagawa has always sought to prove himself to be on top of the food chain. I think Dazai is something that focuses that need - and I’m about 99% sure this is something Dazai picked up, ran with, and exploited because he could. I don’t think it’s very fair to boil the intricacies of Dazai and Akutagawa’s relationship to…. uwu senpai notice me.

anonymous asked:

As an abuse victim, I have a hard time tolerating Rumbelle lately. It's incredibly toxic and triggering. Rumple had a great redemption arc before A&E decided to retcon his character development. They needed a mischievous, toxic, dark greyish character, but they were so in love with Colin, that they decided Killy is the good hearted, redeemable, love interest their show needs. This is such a bullshit.

I’m sorry you’ve been in the end of abuse. *offers you a hug*  I hope you do have a better life now. I can relate with abuse because I’ve lived that too with my own parents and one past relationship, though I must say don’t feel triggered by RumBelle because, as there are many complexities to their relationship, I don’t really see Rumple actively hurting/manipulating Belle to “keep her on his leash,” not the way C$ presents abuse.

Belle has never been submissive; we’ve seen her push back and make her own choices, and proof of that is how she’s been on her own for longer than she’s been with him; she comes when things feel right, but also leaves the moment it doesn’t go as she believes it should— unlike we see with Emma and H00k: Emma endures all his crap and never really puts limits. Still, I insist *I* don’t see Rumple as an abuser; I see him as an abuse victim whose insecurities make him push people away and make him a “difficult man to love” because of them. And he’s also misguided by all the darkness that has surrounded him for hundreds of years, so he’s sort of “wired” for not the best or more “morally rightful” decisions, but like he said: everything he does is always to protect his family.

As of now, do we see him pressuring Belle into coming back with him? No. He doesn’t push her at all; he’s giving her space. It’s actually Belle who approaches him. Does he want to force his son to love him? No. We did see he entertained the idea of cutting Gideon from his fate with the shears, like Fiona did with him- as we just learned -but he chose NOT to do that. Rumple is letting his son and his wife come on their own terms, IF they do come at all. His only life purpose is to protect them from harm. How he does it, well, sometimes it is questionable but really I dont see many of his actions as horrible. The most deceitful in my eyes, and for which I hated the writers beyond words, was to see him lie about the dagger. However, I actually see Emma make far worse choices, endangering not only her family but the whole town, and yet she’s still called a Savior and cheered for it, for “fighting for her love” - being selfish actually? The fuck?!

So, Rumple hasn’t been able to let go of power because he believes without it he won’t be able to protect his family, not because he loves it OVER his family. I don’t know, but if I had a past like his I would act pretty much the same way. I just see how his fear of his family getting hurt is what drives him towards taking morally ambiguous choices. He was cut off from having light magic, so that is also a big motor that keeps him in the dark path.

I dismiss most of the bullshit they write when it comes to Rumple or Regina when it doesn’t make sense, mainly because it is super obvious they do it to prop up Killy Pooh— like how you mention Rumple’s redemption (as well as Regina’s) in “Going Home,” when they sacrificed so they could give their children AND everyone else their best chance. But only to have it fucked up in the next season as it turned into “Once Upon a Hook.”

I understand not everyone can share my same view; we all have different backgrounds and ways of processing the information we are given. Now, I know RB is problematic, but I also can see more underneath the surface… I hope this can in some way help with how you feel about them, having another point of view… Nothing is just black and white. I’m not intending to invalidate your feelings about them, just sharing my own.

Girl Genius re-read observations:

I think one of the things that drew me to the comic when I was younger (and that I still appreciate now) is that along with our titular heroine, there are so many women characters. Friends, enemies, allies, background students, Wulfenbach techs, lab experiments, scientists, anything you can think of, there’s a gal in Girl Genius who is that.

This steampunk Europa has actual ethnic diversity that keeps in mind how close Europe, Asia, and Africa actually are to each other, and that there’s loads of walking clanks and airships for travel…except for the main cast. So far everyone who’s permanently joined Agatha’s main party either seems to be white, or is fantastical. There are characters of color who get to stick around for a given arc, but they don’t join Agatha’s party.

Pros of mad science universe: really really easy to headcanon characters as transgender. Cons of mad science universe: makes it even more disappointing that canonically nobody definitely is, I don’t think the possibility’s even come up, despite them sticking a human’s mind into a freaking LOCOMOTIVE.

The heterocentricity is wearing. Oh my gawd. Please let Colette and Seffie be girlfriends. Bring back those Wulfenbach techs who were making out in a closet and make it canon that they’re both men. Unfreeze Mechanicsburg so those two gals can keep flirting. Solve the Love Triangle by having Gil & Tarvek snog the shit out of each other and be in a happy bi triad with Agatha.

I’m really glad the comic moved online because when it was still in print I wanted to introduce it to my friends, but I only had one set of copies and didn’t want to lose any of them, and inviting friends over to your place to read comics when 95% of the women characters are blatantly cheesecake? AWKWARD.

Edit: aaaaaaaaand trying to think back over when people join and sometimes leave the main group, and thinking about characters who are in the comic but not on the protagonist’s team- Captain Bangladesh Dupree! She is our consistently appearing in every arc I can remember character of color. She’s not on the hero’s team, but she is consistently part of the main cast, like Klaus. 

anonymous asked:

Earlier today, you rebbloged a post about not calling white europeans caucasion. I was wondering why that was, since it's one of the definitions of the word? Not hating, just confused.

Hello! So, a lot of people much more knowledgeable than me have talked extensively on this topic, but I’ll try to sum it up as well as possible. 

The term ‘Caucasian’ literally refers to people who come from/have ancestry from the Caucasus region, which encapsulates Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey and Iran, all PoC countries. These countries and their peoples are neither white nor european, ergo people from the Caucasus - Caucasian people - are neither white nor european! Case closed.

It really should be this simple. The reason why it’s not, and why Caucasian has nearly become synonymous with white and european, is basically thanks to a bunch of racist, white eugenicists a few centuries ago who developed a preference for ‘perfect’ Caucasian skulls, said Caucasian people had ‘perfect skin’ and other unscientific, arbitrary stuff like that. Here is a great response from an earlier ask on this blog which explains the origins of the term. Over time, it developed into a blanket term for whites, not least because of the US and their use of the term ‘Caucasian’ in racial discourse.  This is a brilliant video by Franchesca Ramsey, which goes into the racist history of the term ‘Caucasian’.

On another level, the problem with referring to whites and europeans as Caucasian is the erasure of Caucasian identities. Since white people equate white to Caucasian, people from the Caucasus region are faced with being labeled as white, and having their PoC identities erased. This just feeds into the whole messy, racist ‘But Middle Easterns/Caucasians are really white, we even call Europeans Caucasians!1!!1!ONE’ diatribe, which coincidentally our mod Sanaz had to deal with just this week. Less important but as a personal example, I ID as Caucasian as well as ME through my Georgian grandmother, but I’ve given up calling myself Caucasian among whites, since they just start with ‘Oh sure, we know you’re white, you’re so pale! We knew you weren’t really Turkish/ME anyway! Ehehe!’ For more on this, feel free to go through our previous asks on the subject.

Tl;dr: calling white europeans Caucasian erases people from the Caucasus region, who are PoC and not white, irrespective of skin color, and has a racist & completely unscientific background. As always, please correct me if I’ve made a mistake, and/or add anything I’ve forgotten. I hope this reply somewhat helps clear the confusion!
