goes back to grave

  • What I say: I'm fine.
  • What I mean: Percival Graves was an actual person before Grindelwald came and did whatever the heck he did to him so where is he now HOW is he now is he okay is he getting enough sleep? What if he's stuck in some weird tiny jail cell room will they find him how can they possibly find him obviously Grindelwald isn't going to just tELL THEM WHERE HE PUT THE REAL GRAVES and omg what if he's dead?? This is why I wanted it all to be a ruse some persona that Grindelwald had created and had been drama queen-ing at for years why could it not have been that simple why does he have to destroy so many lives like just make out with Dumbledore already but what if Graves is okay and he goes back to MACUSA but they're like, "Sorry, no, we don't trust you any more you were evil" and he's out of a job just like that the heAD OF THE DEPARTMENT OF MACUSA'S MAGICAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AND DIRECTOR OF MAGICAL SECURITY FIRED but they wouldn't do that would they MACUSA has no chill but alsO
  • Newt: *huffs*
  • Graves: What?
  • Newt: Nothing.
  • Graves: If you say so...*goes back to reading the paper*
  • Newt: *sighs loudly*
  • Graves: Must you do that?
  • Newt: Do what? I'm not doing anything -Perry-.
  • Graves: That. That right there.
  • Newt: That. What.
  • Graves: The attitude! You always do this! And for no reason!
  • Newt: You're the reason I always have an attitude, Perry!
  • Graves: I haven't done anything! I woke up ten minutes ago! And don't call me Perry, Lizard!

omg GravesxHarry is an option? I love the idea of them but the fact they exist decades apart makes them quite the rare pair xD So can I request a one word thing with Graves and Harry and the word emerald?

“Emerald.” Percival took a step closer to Harry, tilting his head down to look at him. “I was going to say emerald. I’ve never met your mother, so I don’t know what her eyes look like.” 

Harry couldn’t tell what Percival was thinking, not that he ever could. He held his breath as the taller man looked down at him. A gloved hand touched the side of his cheek when he tried to look away. The intensity of the man’s gaze was almost impossible to withstand. 

It was nice to have met someone who didn’t compare his looks to his parents, but the openness of the statement made Harry feel uncertain. He was grateful for it, but it just reminded him that he was almost a century away from home.

“I’m sure you can tell me all about her one day,” Percival continued, “and more about your home. Wherever that really is.” 

It was like Harry was under a spell. Percival Graves was so intimidating, so overwhelming, that his very presence made everyone in the room sit up straighter, and work harder. Yet, Harry wanted to spend every moment with him, just so that he could be better himself. 

Percival took a step back and straightened his coat. “I’ll see you tomorrow,” he said as he picked up his briefcase and walked out the door like nothing out of the ordinary had happened. 

When he was out of earshot, Harry put a hand against his rapidly beating heart and sighed “How am I supposed to get home now?” 

Oh, gosh! On Doctor Who, the most difficult scene for me was the episode - I think it’s The Name of the Doctor. And it’s when he goes back…that’s when he goes back, isn’t it, and finds his grave? In that episode,  where my character is there as an apparition and she’s actually already died, and she’s come back to sort of be hanging around. Well, we had this moment in the TARDIS, where he’s saying ‘I have to let you go. Goodbye’. At the Q&A last night, we were talking about how manic the filming is and there’s never enough time to shoot anything, and it’s sort of pressure, pressure, pressure!

[…] it took ages to set this scene up - and for all I knew, it was the last time I was ever going to be on Doctor Who; this was the moment where I was saying goodbye to him, finally. And I could only do it in one take!

Matt was so angry with them! Because they were saying 'No, we have literally 2 minutes before we have to wrap for the night. Okay, shoot!’ And Matt was so furious, and I was sort of upset at their sort of treatment of us and also the fact that this was a big deal for my character.

We did. We did it in one take. And I wasn’t happy about it. I left feeling sort of cross, actually.

A Fantasy

by Louise Gluck

I’ll tell you something: every day
people are dying. And that’s just the beginning.
Every day, in funeral homes, new widows are born,
new orphans. They sit with their hands folded,
trying to decide about this new life.

Then they’re in the cemetery, some of them
for the first time. They’re frightened of crying,
sometimes of not crying. Someone leans over,
tells them what to do next, which might mean
saying a few words, sometimes
throwing dirt in the open grave.

And after that, everyone goes back to the house,
which is suddenly full of visitors.
The widow sits on the couch, very stately,
so people line up to approach her,
sometimes take her hand, sometimes embrace her.
She finds something to say to everybody,
thanks them, thanks them for coming.

In her heart, she wants them to go away.
She wants to be back in the cemetery,
back in the sickroom, the hospital. She knows
it isn’t possible. But it’s her only hope,
the wish to move backward. And just a little,
not so far as the marriage, the first kiss. 

right so i just had the worst steggy headcanon ever

peggy, about 20 years after the end of the war, finally thinking she’s ready to go back to europe/deal with all the stuff she’s just been shutting out, focusing on ssr and shield and everything else. and she goes to a few of the european battlefields and ends up at the american cemetery in normandy with its white crosses, and finally comes across one of the unknown soldier ones:

here lies in honored glory a comrade in arms known but to god

and she looks at it for a long moment and then finally slowly and gently kneels down in front of it and

just

loses

it

Commander Synergy of the Day: A little something I came across while looking up an answer to an ask. You can get around the temporary aspect of Unearth with Flicker effects! Because the Unearthed creatures are heading to Exile with the Closet (or similar effects), the Replacement Effect doesn’t apply. Then when it comes back, it’s a new entity that doesn’t remember being Unearthed, and goes back to the grave when it dies, ready to be brought back again.
