A n y w a y, I just want to give @itsallavengers , a talented, enthusiastic, valuable, amazing writer and member of this fandom a huge shoutout for dealing with people. In general. Just people. You’re doing amazing, Gwen.

Hanahaki Disease is an illness born from one-sided love, where the patient throws up and coughs of flower petals when they suffer from one-sided love. The infection can be removed through surgery, but the feelings disappear along with the petals.

To whoever made the prompt list:

Fight me in the WalMart parking lot at 12:30 this is so sad and also making this comic sucked out my remaining will to live

Every GoT interview with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau since 2013
  • Interviewer: *asks something about Jaime that has absolutely nothing to do with Brienne*
  • NCW: well you see when he was in the baths of Harrenhal with Brienne...

Gwen: Would you say she’s made him a more likeable character? A more human character?

Nikolaj: Nope

Gwen: Someone the audiences can connect-

Nikolaj: Mmmm, nope

Gwen: -with more? 

Gwen: Do you think they come up to the actress that played Brienne of Tarth and say “I didn’t like that Jaime character before you. YOU made him likeable. YOU did. YOU did.” Do you think that’s the case?

Gwen and Nikolaj banter when interviewing each other in their second interview together! [x]

AAAAAAAA I MADE MYSELF SAD

So after the season 2 finale (spoiler yolo) and finding out why Max hates everything and he’s actually just depressed that something that he’s supposed to love turns to shit because of the motive behind it. (summer camps supposed to be fun and all but he hates the idea of liking it because he know his parents just didn’t want him) I CANT STOP THINKING ABOUT MR HONEYNUTS

LIKE, HERES THIS DEPRESSED, CYNICAL 10 YEAR OLD BOY WHO HATES EVERYTHING ALREADY BECAUSE OF BEING BORDERLINE ABANDONED BY THE TWO PEOPLE WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO CARE ABOUT HIM THE MOST, DROPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF FRIGGIN NOWHERE WITH A SHIT TON OF ABSOLUTE STRANGERS. ITS NOT EVEN SO HE COULD HAVE FUN OR LEARN ANYTHING, THEY DIDN’T EVEN CARE IF HE HAD FUN AT ALL, PROOF BEING HIS PAPERWORK. THEY JUST WANTED HIM OUT OF THE WAY. AND MAX WAS OBVIOUSLY THERE WHEN IT WAS GETTING FILLED OUT. DID THEY ASK HIM? DID THEY EVEN TELL HIM? LIKE HOW DID THAT EVEN GO DOWN? DID THEY LITERALLY JUST DRIVE TO THE FURTHEST CAMP THEY COULD FIND, WRITE HIS NAME AND AGE ON A SHEET OF PAPER AND LEAVE WITHOUT HIM?

ALL I CAN THINK ABOUT IS MR. HONEYNUTS. 

Again, Max is left at a camp with strangers. His parents don’t care about him. He probably feels alone and like shit all the time. His camp counselor makes out everything to be cheerful and joyous, which picks at Max because his life is shit but yet he’s supposed to make it out as something great when it’s not (although this is clarified later on by David that it’s okay to not be okay, but not to pretend that it is.) He’s left here all summer to just stay there. Not even as just a childhood experience, it’s literally a temporary orphanage on his part. His only comfort at this place is probably Mr. friggin Honeynuts. And knowing this makes me cry.

Can you rec me the best david angst content you know of? Art, fic, etc? I'm biased in favor of dadvid and gwenvid stuff, but anything you think is good, I'm sure I'll enjoy

So I hate plugging my own stuff, but I’ve been riding a hell of an angst train lately and it’s kinda not the worst thing ever

I don’t know much re: art, because I just don’t follow that many artists – though RA’s fuckbuddies and Hanahaki comics are just excellent punches to the gut –and oh my god all of @doritofalls‘ daniel-centric stuff. I know you wanted David angst – and it’s there – but … hmm, I’ll have to hunt down specific comics, but there’s a lot of good shit.

In terms of fics, in no particular order:

So first gotta start with the obvious, which is that I once again have to tell everyone to fucking read @ciphernetics‘ “You Have Someone That Loves You.” She’s probably sick of me constantly rambling about it, and everyone who follows me is probably really sick of me constantly rambling about it, but oh my god. It’s angst. So much good good Gwenvid angst and I’ve never read anything like it and my heart hurts, it’s so fantastic.

that @directium will rip your fucking heart out and won’t even feel sorry about it. “Cry and Hope” is brutal, “Selfish” is to this day the most viscerally painful fic I’ve ever read and I still have seriously conflicted emotions about it, and “Same Old, Same Old” isn’t super angst-heavy and most of the sadness is Max-centric, but it’s still got that good stuff.

Bittermahogany’s “Adventures of Ghost Boy and Happy Man” is more angst-heavy in the first chapter, but man is it rough if you have even a tiny heart for Jaspid. Poor baby boys. They also wrote “Neverland Has Nothing on This Shit,” which might just force me to like something with Danvid in it; it’s not at that point yet, but what’s there is super engaging.

@woop-woop-woop wrote an awesome “Daniel breaks the boy” story called “Lost in the Dark” that I think is really worth reading.

@screamingpies, aka IbelieveinMarkNutt, writes that delicious dadvid angst we all crave in “Stitches.” (I’m not very good at introducing these, but oh well. There’s only so many ways to say “this is good and sad, read it.”)

LivestoLead’s What Did You Just Say?” takes RA’s fuckbuddies concept and runs with it in fun directions. I think the ending’s a little weak, but the first two chapters are killer.

Sunset in His Eyes” by @demonsandsweets is a delightful (in the worst/best way) Stockholm Syndrome Danvid nightmare of a fic that’s an absolute ride.

Want some cute little sad Jaspid fluff? “The Moon” by @deionysuss has got you covered.

And to close out, what’s more appropriate than some sad Gwenvid? It’s how we started this party, and it’s how we should end it. For that, enjoy the only-gonna-get-worse-ouch “Make You Mine” by @rickandmortyfuckedupmylife.

That oughta keep you busy crying for a while! :)

Okay so I am doing some blocking for my fic and I just wanted to share with you guys the probable layout of the counselors cabin in camp camp.

Using clips from episodes s1e10, s1e11, and s2e1. We can conclude that David and Gwen most likely share one room. David gets the right, and Gwen the left. The tv-sitting area is to the left of the door as you walk into the cabin judging from the filling cabinets we see in ‘Cult Camp’.
The desks kind of sit back to back and are to the right as you walk in - I think. (There certainly is a lot more room than my drawing would imply between the desks.)
I couldn’t insert pictures from s1e8 'Into Town’ because I am on mobile but it does show in that scene that both desks face a window. Now, this could mean I am wrong about where the TV is, and the desks are across the cabin at the ends of each of their beds. Or it could mean that they didn’t have the TV and chairs before 'Mind Freakers’ and have rearranged the desks since then. The blocking is kind of weird for the scenes in s1e8 and s1e11. And strangely enough… While in episode 8 Gwen is sitting at the green desk, David is also sitting at the green desk in episode 11- and they appear to only have one desk chair. Strongly implying that they share desks and don’t have individual ones. Meaning the brown is probably just for storage or supplemental use. This makes sense because it would probably be David who takes care off all the camp paperwork not Gwen and they wouldn’t use both daily.
I don’t know I am probably reading too much into all of this.
So while I am not calling this set up final, as if now this is my best estimate on what their cabin situation is like.

anonymous asked:

im kinda disappointed because yet another show has a hetero couple get together and we have enough het representation in media

Hmm. Not entirely sure how to respond to this.

Not in a bad way! Just because … well, it’s a weighty topic.

I guess the first thing to establish is that if you’re talking about canon, there’s no reason to believe that Gwen and David actually are together. They become Max’s “parents,” but the idea that they’re anything but coworkers – and hopefully friends – is pure speculation. 

We know that David and Gwen are canonically into the opposite sex, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t bi or pan. In fact, if you look at the things Gwen reads —

— there’s decent evidence of her being interested in women — or at least their boobs and butts. And let’s be real: someone out there might headcanon David as straight, but I sure haven’t met them.

So yeah! That’s one thing: canon has made no statement one way or another, regarding their sexualities or relationship status.

Now, if you’re disappointed in the fandom’s reaction to Gwenvid … well, this is awkward, because I literally declared myself Queen of Gwenvid Trash Mountain a couple posts ago. But I also totally get it. I may have spent an absurdly long time calculating whether the Progressive Points of an interracial couple in which the WoC exhibits few-to-no stereotypes were enough to overcome the loss of points in it being a M/F relationship. (And of course, comparing the Progressive Points of two white-boy clones in an unhealthy and/or abusive relationship; I’ve experienced a lot of guilt over not liking Danvid. Like, it felt vaguely homophobic? That made sense to my anxiety disorder, I swear.)

The difficulty is that, if you want to ship someone with David, there just aren’t many options that aren’t children or serial killers or creepy old men. And … Gwenvid is so good and pure and I’m sorry, I can’t be rational about this ship, I love it too much. It’s a shame that there aren’t more non-evil ship options on the show, but then again, it’s a children’s summer camp, so there just aren’t going to be that many adults. I suppose maybe the best choice is just ship nothing, if you’re not comfortable with the M/F nature of Gwenvid or the … ick of some other David ships?

However, the nice thing is that, like I said, very few people consider either Gwen or David straight, putting them somewhere on the bi/pansexuality spectrum. I know I personally make sure to emphasize David’s being bisexual, because I can think of exactly 1 example of positive bi representation, and while that example is awesome as fuck, it’s important to have more. 

So while it is a M/F couple, in my experience most fans don’t consider it a het one, if that makes sense.

And for what it’s worth, the writers have given us an established male-interested guy in Nurf, and a nonbinary character in Nerris. So while it’s not like we can check off those boxes and go, “Yay! We solved representation!” it’s a nice reminder that the creators of the show are definitely trying, and we’ll likely see more different kinds of representation as the show develops.

The Final Decision

Part three of A Triple Threat


Part One, Part Two, You Are Here, Part Four



had been six months. Six months.

Every day David would wake, and sit by the phone. He spent all day there, only moving when he absolutely needed to.

Gwen had broken up with her girlfriend at some point during this time, and was temporarily living with David. She was just there to make sure David ate and slept.

The day of Max’s eleventh birthday had been the hardest. David couldn’t stand the thought of Max spending his first birthday without his family in the system. Alone. Rejected.

David has spent the better part of that day in tears with nobody but Gwen to comfort him.

Now he and Gwen sat together in his living room, Gwen reading some Young Adult novel, and David staring at the landline.

Staring. Staring. Staring.

When it started to ring for the first time in months David sat up in shock, momentarily forgetting what to do.

“Well? Answer it!” Gwen urged, and David clumsily fumbled with getting the receiver to his ear.

“Yes? Hello?” He asked.

“Hi, is this David?” The woman on the other end of the phone asked, he recognized the voice as the woman he had spoken to during the beginning of the homestudy.

“Yes! Yes, this is David!” He said quickly, waving Gwen to come and listen in and tilting the receiver so she could hear.

“Oh, good. We are delighted to inform you that you have been approved to be fit for adoption, and we are comfortable with you scheduling a visit to our facilities to meet some of the children and get an idea of who you’re interested in, though I’m sure you have that figured out, and then you can have a meeting with them. The child’s needs come first, of course, and we will determine if you’re right for the child, and the child is allowed input on whether or not they’re interested in you. Does that make sense?” She asked.

“Yes, yes one hundred percent. Am I allowed to bring a friend with me?” He asked, glancing at Gwen.

“Sure, if you think that would help. Have a good day!” She chirped.

“Yeah, you too!” He responded, unable to keep the excitement from bubbling into his voice.

He and Gwen looked at each other, both grinning.

“You’re going to be a dad!” Gwen cheered.

“I’M GOING TO BE A DAD!” David yelled, jumping into the air, and pulling her into a hug.

“God, look at you, you’re all grown up.” Gwen teased.

“I couldn’t have done this without you. Thank you, Gwen!” David said, pulling away.

“Anytime, you big lug. Now, let’s go play some celebratory paintball!” She grinned.

“Yeah!” David said, pumping his fist into the air.

The next day David called the adoption agency, he told them that he and a friend were looking for an opening to look at some of the kids, and hopefully schedule a meeting with one of them. They told him that he could come in anytime the next weekend. David said he’d be in Saturday at three in the afternoon, remembering Max was not an early riser.

He spent most of the night sitting up with Gwen talking about how excited he was, and that he was going to take Max shopping for a better bedspread, and more clothes, and some games.

Gwen listened, and offered input. Somehow they both had fallen asleep on the couch, two empty mugs of hot chocolate on the coffee table.

“Oh my goodness, I’m so nervous.” David said the next morning, worriedly, “What if we’re not a good match?” David said worriedly.

“Don’t be stupid, you’re the best person out there to take that psycho in.” Gwen joked.

David smiled a little, letting himself believe it. He was the best person for Max. But then a new worry crept in.

“Oh, but Gwen! What if Max doesn’t want to come home with me!” David said, looking up with tears pricking his eyes.

“Oh no, David. Don’t think like that. You know that shithead likes you, even if he tries to deny it. He’ll want to live with you. Knowing Max, he’ll probably be a bit stubborn, but a familiar face will be welcome in his situation.” Gwen said softly, smiling reassuringly.

“But, what if he’s already found a home?” David whispered. He felt awful about it because he wanted Max to be in a home and happy, but he also wanted that home to be with David. “Was that selfish?”

“A little, but it’s good to be selfish sometimes.” Gwen reassured him. “And let’s just be selfish for a while, and hope he doesn’t have a home yet, okay?”

“Okay.” He whispered again.

Gwen pulled David into a hug and he laid his head on hers, and they stood like that for a while. Stressing, fearing, but enjoying the support.

“Gwen? This is… this is the right decision, right? It feels right, but can I be a good enough dad for him?” David asked suddenly.

“What? David you’ll be the best dad for him!” She said, leaning back to look him in the eye.

“How…how do you know?” David asked again, anxieties lacing his voice.

“Because,” Gwen smiled a little, “somebody fucking has to.”

I’m Writing a Makki story and I’d really appreciate it if you guys went to go check it out, just put out my first chapter, and no one else comes along until the second chapter, but this idea has been stuck in my head for a while!

Summary:

“What that also means is that I’ll be leaving as well, these are my final words to you, the student body,” David feels his body go rigid at the words, knowing there was more the speech, silently praying David waits, along with the students that have come to know the Max’s tendencies so well, “well I would just like to say,” Max takes a big inhale before grabbing the mic with both hands, “Fuck you all and good bye you little Shits!”

~*~

David’s offered a job offer at a better school, which means moving to a different district and Max has to leave his High school behind, which isn’t too bad he decides, because he didn’t actually care about school. They arrive and the school is, something else, David finds it perfect though. Max quickly makes friends with a small group consisting of Neil, Nikki, and Harrison. When Max’s old “friend” Sasha finds out about his new friends, especially one in particular, she convinces him to play a game.

Or in other words: Sasha and Max are a “thing” and Sasha hates Nikki and when she finds out Max has become her friend, she wants to break Nikki in a brand new way
Also I’m terrible at descriptions, so just give it a chance.
