Can we all just take a moment to appreciate the pitch perfectness that was setting Wonder Woman during WW1? I mean, at first I was like…WWI? Why WWI? There was no clear cut bad guy in WWI. It was one of the most tragically pointless wars in human history.
But then I realized that was the point. In WWII it’s easy to point at Hitler and the Nazis and say, that’s them! that’s the bad guy. Just KILL THEM AND BE DONE WITH IT.
But the Point of Wonder Woman is that people, all people, are part of the problem. From Steve Trevor, who’s people, my people, massacred the Native Peoples, to the teenage German soldiers putting gas canisters on a plane, EVERY SINGLE HUMAN BEING IS MIX OF GOOD AND BAD CHOICES, and a victim and a perpetrator of choices that lead to death and suffering and tragedy.
And that makes Diana’s choice to keep fighting for peace even better. Because she’s not out to defeat one big bad and get it over with. She’s out to fight for peace, and that is a war that will NEVER end. How is that not 10000 times braver than just killing one person and ending a war?
It is Tolkien’s long victory, the victory you only see after the end. And that fight is braver than anything else you can do because it is step by step, day after day, choice after choice.
You know how people working in retail always have ‘weird customer stories?’
Sam and Dean Winchester are those weird customers.
There are probably whole online forums dedicated to this, now that I think about it. Started as a joke on reddit and then people from all over the country start to chime in.
Two huge guys came in today and bought 20 cartons of Morton’s salt and a box of Hello Kitty bandaids. Nothing else.
Had a similar experience! Two guys come in: one guy buys a ton of salt and like 50 pocket-sized lighters, the other puts a divider between them and buys a single slice of cherry pie from the bakery. They leave together.
Lol same here. Salt and bandaids. Did one of em have long hair? XD
I work at the butcher’s downtown. We had two super buff scary dudes come in asking for any buckets of lamb’s blood we might have “lying around.” Past closing time. I gave it to them but it was freaky as hell.
Omg what’s with the salt conspiracy? But yeah same I work at a Christmas tree farm and sometimes we catch these two guys cutting down trees at night. It’s always the same two guys and they only cut the stumps off. Why. EDIT: one of them did have long hair actually!!
This is unrelated but I once had a guy in a trench coat physically assault me because we were out of pie. This was AFTER he cracked an egg onto the floor and knocked over everything in sight.
yknow what. it’s in the am hours. ive had at least 2 alcoholic beverages tonighit. and i have decided that once im out of tech school im gonna get a degree in ye olde literature just so i can write a groundbreaking paper about how cu chulainn (the actual myth one not the anime one) is a fucking trans icon. my guy is incredibly trans. lets just take a good look at the facts here folks
-these stories were written down by monks with an obviously christian agenda they edited the story to adhere to, in some parts more obviously so than others. considering the roman catholic hatred of trans people at the time,
it would not be unreasonable to assume that if cu chulainn was in fact trans in the originals that were being written down said monks would attempt to cover that up by making him cis.
-dude changed his name which is a very trans™ thing 2 do obviously
-the whole thing with the curse and how he was the only one ready to throw the fuck down while all the other men were in bed with the pains of birth like this is such a classic example of using gendered language in magic shenanigans to ur advantage
-often described as being small & beardless “this is supposed to show he’s young” but is it really??? it’s not uncommon for masculine women to be mistaken for young men and him being both notably small and unable to grow a beard is brought up several times in text. either way it’s not like being young and being trans are mutually exclusive. really makes you think.
-alright here’s the big kicker that really says Cu Chulainn Is Trans 2 me in big shiny letters: he had to prove himself as Really Being That Tough over & over again to a frankly ridiculous degree. multiple times (at least 2 in the tain bo cuailnge that i can remember rn) there’s some enemy fuck who knows god damn well the one in front of them is cu mother fucking chulainn who has been absolutely obliterating his enemies by the hundreds but the moment they see him & notice he’s beardless (again, this is usually interpreted as meaning he’s young but that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case) they’re like “nah I’m not fighting that get me a real enemy” and cu has to put on a fake beard to convince them he really is A Big Tough Dude Who Can Kick Your Ass. another time in the tain cu used his sick sword skills to make a fool of someone who was mocking him and the fucking idiot didn’t stop even after cu literally shaved the guys head clear & cut off his clothes with a sword. there’s one story
(called bricriu’s feast)
of a competition where cu easily beat everyone by a wide margin in everything they compete in but none of the other contestants wanted to accept the result so they kept bringing in other judges trying to get someone other than cu to be declared winner.
there’s this really weird refusal of people in the ulster cycle to accept that cu chulainn is as good at things as he is
(specifically things considered masculine like fighting)
and idk about all yall but that really fucking screams good old fashioned transphobia to me lads. like trans folks are still dealing with this shit in modern day with athletes not being allowed to compete with their own fucking gender bc it ~wouldnt be fair~ or other such nonsense. this fuck shit with ppl absolutely refusing to acknowledge cu as possibly being good at Man Things is incredibly Trans Relatable™.
-ALSO i just remembered this but there’s also at least one and i’m pretty sure more than one time where cu talks to people who are like “yea we’re trying to hunt down cu chulainn” and they don’t realise he is in fact that very same cu chulainn or are even remotely suspicious of him which would make a lot more sense if they mistook him for a woman
The voltron crew on a reality tv show where they’re all stuck in a house together
First off all, the confessionals would be gold
Allura constantly shit talks everyone in the house. Nobody is safe.
She and Hunk will often be caught gossiping on camera, which leads to some very interesting stories.
By now, they all know everything about everyone.
Pidge is constantly caught up at 3am eating dry cereal, usually straight out of the box.
Matt: what the fuck are you doing up at 3am?
Pidge: what the fuck are you doing up at 3am?
Keith and Lance maintain a secret relationship for a while before everyone finds out.
Lance, in the confessional: Oh yeah, Keith? I hate that guy. cuts to them flirting He annoys the shit out of me. cuts to them holding hands and gazing lovingly at each other I don’t think we’ll ever get along. cuts to them kissing
Of course, everyone else already at least knew they had a thing for each other, but they officially found out after Matt walked in on them kissing in the laundry room.
He, of course, yelled as loud as he could and soon enough everyone came by to see a very flustered Keith and a “I’m trying to keep my cool but I’m definitely not cool” Lance.
Shiro is seen handing Pidge ten dollars in the background.
Coran is definitely the camera man/host.
Shiro does almost everything. He can’t help it, exactly. Something in him just forces him to do all the laundry and clean the entire house.
But, he does force everyone else to do the dishes and eventually they have to make a chore chart so Shiro doesn’t overwork himself with household tasks.
Lance is a master at avoiding the chores. He knows exactly when to slip out and hide and is exceptional at faking sickness.
Lance absolutely loves the cameras and the show.
Though, the show does come with consequences for everyone. It’s hard to be serious and discuss things that are meant to be kept in private. Sometimes, they have to ask for the cameras to be turned off.
On nights they aren’t filming or doing other work, everyone squishes onto the big couch, microwaves a ton of popcorn, and has a movie marathon. They all fall asleep together by the end of it (Lance on Keith’s shoulder, obviously).
Sometimes Allura and Hunk’s girlfriend, Shay comes to visit and the entire house radiates sunshine.
Slav does technical management for the show, but he’s often a part of it since he causes Shiro to blow up all the time.
A normal conversation is happening and a sudden crash is heard from the other room. Cut to Shiro in a confessional, “It definitely wasn’t my fault, Slav was there."
The "Who Broke It?” scene from Parks and Rec actually happens
It was Shiro. Shiro broke it.
Hunk’s confessionals are the pettiest.
Hunk: I’m just saying, I don’t think we can trust this Rolo guy
Hunk, minutes later: I WAS RIGHT HE’S SHADY AND TWISTED
Pidge is too short to reach most shelves and cabinets and is caught falling off of counters multiple times.
There’s a really long sequence of footage with Keith just biting normal household objects. Why? Nobody knows.
Housewide debate: Was Keith Kogane hatched from an egg?
Hatched Side: Lance, Pidge, Matt, Allura
Not Hatched Side: Shiro, Hunk
Keith is just…confused.
Keith: What in the world makes you think I was hatched from a damn egg?
Lance, shrugging: I dunno, eggboy.
Matt joins the house later than everyone else so they decide to prank him with a very cult-like fake initiation, led by Allura.
It succeeds in freaking him out and he doesn’t talk to anyone besides Pidge and Shiro for about two days afterwards.
April fools day is dangerous
Everyone avoids Pidge and Matt at all costs. The dynamic duo is a force to be reckoned with.
Lance and Allura occasionally hold spa nights where they give everyone face masks and paint their nails.
Hunk is a huge fan favorite, all the viewers love him.
Pairing: Sebastian Stan x female!Reader - Cast x female!Reader
Request: So my idea was a fic with seb and reader on the set of Infinity War. Reader likes taking naps on the casts laps, and after a while seb notices that she’s never napped on his lap and gets a bit jealous. A few cast members notice his crush on the reader and one day reader finds seb and the rest of the cast sitting together and goes straight for his lap. The whole cast looks up in awe and snap multiple pictures and seb is all flustered and blushy. You can change it up if it didn’t make sense lol ☺️ (-anon)

A/N: it’s been such a weird week, and i really hope today will be good. but i’ve been havin’ a pretty bad mental-problems sort of day streak, so any memes sent to me are and will be greatly appreciated !!
“Y/N,” a distant, low voice sneaks through your sleepy mind. “C’mon, Y/N, I have to be in the suit in five minutes.”
The groggy veil of sleep slowly lifts off of your as you begin to wake-up. You could feel a heavy hand beginning to gently shake your shoulder.
“But I was so comfy,” your tired voice grumbles.
“I know,” Chris’s soothing voice drifts through the room. “But you’ve been sleeping on me for almost an hour, and I really have to get ready.”
“Fine,” you groan, lazily pushing yourself up into a sitting position, snuggling into the corner of the couch as you pry open your heavy eyelids. “But you should know, that was a good nap.”
You blink away the sleep from your vision and look around the room, your gaze locking on Anthony.
the reason tater keeps messing up ransom and holsters names is because bitty keeps introducing them as “ransom and holster” and ransom goes to introduce himself and tries to say justin but he can’t say justin bc bitty just introduced them as ransom and holster but now he’s forgotten his nickname and he’s panicking and he blurts out “hi i’m holster” (cut the guy some slack, he’s talking to his idol who he has a massive crush on). holster finds it so funny that he introduces himself as ransom. bitty is confused, but he slaps tater on the back, says “have fun with that” and walks away. later tater hears someone call ransom “ransom” so he thinks he just mixed the two up and goes to ask jack which is which, and jack just says “justin and adam? yeah. they play some good hockey”
summary? ransom is nervous, holster is an asshole, jack is unhelpful, and tater is confused
Author: @dumbass-stilinski Rating: NSFW 18+ Pairing: Stiles/Isaac/Reader threesome Words: 3,907 AN: This took me forever to write I’m so mad about it but I hope ya’ll enjoy it. Thanks to @writing-obrien for proofreading and @celestial-writing for helping me with plot, as usual.
It wasn’t a secret that Stiles and Isaac weren’t exactly friends. They tolerated each other because of Scott, for the good of the pack. But Stiles thought Isaac was a snob, and Isaac found Stiles to be highly annoying. The only thing they had in common was their affections for you.
Genre: Angst/fluff/(future)smut || dance captain!hoseok, bad boy!au, uni!au
Pairing: Reader x Hoseok
Summary: Jung Hoseok was once the sweetheart of the school, the dance captain whom every girl, including you, can’t help but fall head over heels for. But like the force of the ever-glowing sun, everything that rises must also set. A year of inactivity later and he’s now the school’s resident bad boy. You’re a firm believer of allowing the past be the past, and yet you can’t help but wonder where the risen sun has gone into hiding—because perhaps its shadows have out-shined its own radiance.
Okay so one thing I haven’t seen touched upon by the humans are weird/space orcs trend is the call of the void.
Human: okay so every human has this instinct in the back of their mind that tells them to do things they know will kill them, hurt them, or ruin their life. A man standing on the edge of a cliff looking down suddenly gets the urge to jump, a woman in a star cruiser gets the ugre to steer directly into the path of an oncoming cruiser, a guy is cutting meat and their dog is begging for some, the urge to stab their dog pops into their head. We call it the call of the void.
