they would be excellent parents but they would also be the most extra parents ever like lena luthor, billionaire ceo and member of the prometheus society, would show up to thursday's pta meeting in gucci sunglasses and her wife, pulitzer prize winning journalist kara danvers would walk in beside her on the phone casually catching up with cat grant and helen smith, little jimmy's mom, would shit herself at the pure power

their child would pull the draco except it’s “wait til my mother hears abt this” and it doesnt matter which mother theyre talkin abt the other person WILL shit themselves in fear

The Gruesome Murder of Laura Ackerson

Laura Ackerson (27) had been missing for over 10 days when her remains were found in an alligator infested creek in Texas, on July 24, 2011. She had been dismembered and authoriries were able to recover her head, torso, and part of her limbs. Her cause of death couldn’t be determined with certainty because of the condition of the remains, but the autopsy showed signs of asphyxiation and a possible stab wound to the neck.

Laura had been in the middle of a nasty custody battle with her ex, Grant Hayes III, over their two kids, who were 3 and 2 years old at the time. Grant was an aspiring musician, drug addict and had a tendency to use and manipulate women. During his relationship with Laura, he was abusive and openly cheated on her with other women, among them Amanda Smith. The extent of Grant’s deceit was so, that Laura believed they were married (they had a ceremony and all) and she only found out he’d never signed the marriage license when he sent her a picture of his wedding to Amanda, ending the relationship between them for good.

Grant, who had temporary custody of the children during week days, and Amanda were going through financial trouble because he’d spent most of her inheritance recklessly. On top of that, Amanda became pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl a month before Laura went missing. The upcoming court date didn’t look good for him, especially after the appointed psychologist had reported he exhibited “illogical disturbed thinking” and seemed to want to erase Laura from their kids’ lives. On the other hand, Laura was trying to improve her life, starting a business and doing everything the court requested of her.

On July 13, 2011, the last day Laura was seen, she was lured to Grant’s apartment in Raleigh, North Carolina, with the pretense that they were going to let her have the kids for a few days. What happened after, we can’t be sure, since Amanda and Grant had different versions, blaming each other.

According to Amanda, Grant said that Laura had tripped and hurt herself and he asked her to take the kids out so he wouldn’t see their mom like that. He later confessed to her he’d killed her and forced her to help him dispose of her body by threatening their daughter. They traveled to Texas, where Amanda’s sister lived, and threw her dismembered body in the creek. The sister, however, testified in court that during the visit Amanda told her she had “hurt Laura bad” and that she was dead.

Grant played the race card as much as he could and then said Laura had signed a contract in which she agreed to give him full custody of the children in exchange for 25,000 dollars. Indeed a document with two different handwritings stating as much was found in his apartment, and although an expert said part of it had been written by Laura, all the people who knew her said it was impossible she’d give up her kids, especially considering all the changes she was making to get custody and the fact that Grant was broke. According to Grant, Amanda got angry at the agreement and accidentally killed Laura, and he just helped her cover it up to protect her. He finished by saying that “Laura got herself killed”.

The couple was tried separatedly and given the amount of evidence against them, they were both found guilty. Grant of first degree murder, and he got a life sentence without parole, while Amanda will spend 13 to 16 years for second degree murder, as long as her conviction isn’t extended by some added charges that were filed last year. In 2014, these upstanding lovers divorced.

This tragic story is told in the book Bitter Remains, by Diane Fanning.

  • Yates: Wait for it... Wait for it... 9:01! Elizabeth Shaw is officially late for the first time ever. All right, let's do this. Who's got theories?
  • Benton: Uh... Alarm didn't go off.
  • Yates: All three alarms? All with battery back-up? Come on, who wants to take this seriously?
  • Jo: Ooh! She was taken in her sleep!
  • Yates: That's what I'm talking about! Super dark, Jo, but way more plausible than Benton's idiotic alarm clock theory.
  • Osgood: I bet she tucked herself into bed too tight and got stuck.
  • Doctor: Mm, maybe she fell into another dimension where she's interesting.
  • Brigadier: It's 9:00 A.M. Why is no one working?
  • Yates: Elizabeth Shaw is a few minutes late, and we're all trying to guess why.
  • Brigadier: I'd like to play. I'd say she's in line... at the bank... this is fun.
  • Yates: It is fun, but you're all wrong.
  • [Liz enters]
  • Yates: There he is! Liz! Where have you been? We've been worried sick. Do you care to explain yourself?
  • Liz Shaw: I'm just 70 seconds late. It's not a big deal; don't worry about it.
  • Brigadier: Miss Shaw, you will tell us, and you will tell us now.
  • Liz Shaw: ...there was a problem at the bank.
  • Brigadier: Hot damn!

Doctor Who Companion Name Etymologies - Part 2/4

DISCLAIMER: Companions are referred to by their first names here, even if usually referred to by their surnames or another title in series. Nicknames that are short forms of names are used, nicknames that are not a form of the name are not. A good number of the names here are probably not at all what the creators were thinking - they just made up a name, and it coincidentally resembled a real one. Only one name I could not find any real world equivalent of. If a name is officially a short form of a name I cannot find any evidence of being used, but resembles a more common name, I will use the latter. Companions whose names are English words are on the list, companions whose names are puns on English words are not. Companions are ordered as chronologically as possible, but for non-regular companions that's more difficult, and so they are decided according to my judgement. Basically it's all kind of arbitrary but if you don't like it make your own photoset.
