My favorite headcannon is that Jack has an amazing singing voice and he doesnt even know it.
One day when they’re driving in the car, Bitty has his Sappiest Love Songs Ever playlist going, and Jack’s hitting every note in If I Ain’t Got You. By now Bitty knows Jack can sing, so he posts a video of Jack just going at it on his twitter. The offical Falcs account retweets it. Lin-Manuel Miranda retweets it. Bad Bob retweets it with a “He definitely got that one from his mother”. #WhatThePuckZimmermann is trending #1. The world absolutely loves that this big, quiet, awkward hockey bro also belts it out to sappy love songs on long drives, and Bitty is so proud they finally get to see a part of the real Jack.
Also, I hope Ginny and Mike’s respective family issues becomes another point of connection for them. I want them to open up to each other the way they can’t with anyone else. I want them to be each other’s rocks.
So I’m still playing my slutty Half-Orc Grag, who is currently playing Sex-Bingo with all the races. She’s got all the normal races with about half ticked off in one column, and a second column for bonus races (angels, demons and anything shaggable she encounters, i.e. the Sorcerer’s magic house). There’s this one awful creepy old dude who’s a recurring NPC and even my Half-Orc won’t shag him. She once punched him in the nose and he’s been basically in love with her ever since - Oh he’s called Hershal. I was absent for one session and they went on an adventure without me. On my return…
Grag: So what happened?
*Party looks at each other*
Tiefling Fighter: Remember Hershal?
Grag: Ugh, yeah, I remember him.
Tiefling Fighter: Turns out …he’s an Angel.
Grag: What? But he’s all gross and old and -
Tiefling Fighter: Yeah no, he transformed and it turns out he’s amazingly attractive and brave and strong and stuff…
Grag: *Looking at sex bingo* I DIDN’T HAVE AN ANGEL. I COULD’VE HAD AN ANGEL! Wait, this isn’t over, where is he?
*Party looks at each other again*
Dragonborn Cleric: He charged into a one way portal to the Abyss and sealed it behind him.
We did eventually get to the Abyss ourselves and found Hershal. Turns out time moves differently in there and he’s now back to being old, gross and smelly again. Grag was too depressed to even comment.
would like a Dean/Reader fic please? She gets kidnapped. They have to
find her. They do find her but she is in such bad shape they think
they were to late. They call Cas to heal her. Dean realizes he loves her and tells her that he will always be
with her. A few months later he proposes to her. End it in smut
“Dean careful. Dean. Dean!” Sam hissed but the older brother paid no attention to him much less his words. He couldn’t help it, he was practically on autopilot.
A different kind of autopilot than any other case, though. Because this, all of this, was different. His feelings were different, the ones that were driving him over the edge were different from any he’d ever had before. This kind of autopilot was not his inner hunter about to save another victim from a bunch of vampires, and not his inner brother that drove him either; although he’d called you sister many times. Hell, this was far from sibling feelings.
“Dean” Sam growled, grabbing him by the arm and yanking him back before he could do one of the most – if not the most – reckless thing he could; walk inside straight from the front door completely unguarded.
“What?!” he growled at his little brother who gave him a look.
“What what?” he hissed “Are you completely insane!? What are you even thinking? About to walk in like that?”
He grew up in a cold house, or so it seems on his background story. He longed for love, for acknowledgement and acceptance as he needs stability. He is calm but he learned to suppress all his feeling. He is philosophical, he thinks things through but unable to express himself well. He is compassionate, that’s why when Rika showed up he fell in love with the way she observed the world. He is caring and protective towards the one he loved. He could only exist by nurturing and to be nurtured.
But he… Wasn’t aware of his own being. He was desperate, for love, so he fell into a pitch-black hole called lies. He wanted to provide her with his love but he also wanted to protect his friends from harm. He wanted to fix her in order to prove his worth.
OKAY BUT WHOEVER ZUKO ENDS UP MARRYING WOULD HAVE TO LOOK AT HIS CHEST EVERY DAMN DAY AND KNOW THAT THIS MAN TOOK A LIGHTENING STRIKE TO THE CHEST FOR KATARA AND HE WILL NEVER EVER LOVE ANYONE LIKE HE LOVES HER AND CALL ME BITTER AS MUCH AS YOU’D LIKE BUT THAT MAKES ME HAPPY. ZUKO LOVES KATARA. ZUKO WAS WILLING TO DIE FOR KATARA. MAKES ME SO HAPPY. HE LOVES HER SO MUCH.
My very own queen, my everything, my beloved, my bright moon; My intimate companion, my one and all, sovereign of all beauties, my sultan. My life, the gift I own, my be-all, my elixir of Paradise, my Eden, My spring, my joy, my glittering day, my exquisite one who smiles on and on.

the Magnificent, translated by Talat S. Halman
So, since the writers wanted us to compare Fiona/Jimmy’s situation in Season 5 with Ian and Mickey’s. That’s what I did.
I transcripted Fiona and Jimmy’s last conversation in the show, which seemed to me like the most dense with information. And then I added some gallavich comments here and there. See if you agree with me.
Fiona: “I do love you, you know” Jimmy: “I love you too.”
When Jimmy first came back, Fiona told him he didn’t love him, and he called her out on it. She does love Jimmy - because when you have long-lasting relationship with people, most of the times in your life, you can never completely forget them. Ian and Mickey haven’t said their “I love you”’s yet. Actually, Ian’s never explicitely said it, but so far he’s been far more emotional with Mickey than Fiona was with Jimmy. Fiona avoided Jimmy’s touch, Jimmy’s kisses, Jimmy’s eyes. When they had sex, she cried and they had to stop. Also, Fiona was, at the moment, already in love with Sean a little (even though she was married to Gus, lol).
Fiona: "Would be easy to get back to our life together” Jimmy: “Okay, good” Fiona: “But it’s not who we are anymore.” Jimmy: “Well, it could be.” Fiona: “It’s not who I am anymore. I used to like the danger. The not knowing where you were… the bad boy.”
There’s a lot to say here. Firstly, in Ian and Mickey’s case, it wouldn’t be easy to get back to their life together - apart from the fact that their lives together were never quiet, so it’s not about going back to a domestic routine as much as it’s to create a new one. Actually, following Mickey, for Ian, is the hardest choice to make. It’s against all odds and all better judgement, because Mickey is an escaped convict.
But Fiona says it’s not who they are anymore. It’s not who she is anymore. She’s gone through major changes in her life, and she’s not attracted to Jimmy’s lies and mysteries anymore. Ian, on the other hand, is still attracted to Mickey. He’s undoubtedly a different person, and yet, the bond hasn’t faded. In fact, while Jimmy stalks Fiona, calls her and she doesn’t reply, shows up in her house without calling first, has stalked her for months before showing up, Mickey leaves Ian the room of choice, because he’s a much more functional lover now than Jimmy was then. While Fiona was attracted to the not knowing, the bad boy, Ian was attracted to Mickey while he was changing as a person, Ian changed Mickey and was changed by Mickey, and loved him all along. Even when he complained Mickey wasn’t the bitch-slapping, piece of southside trash he fell with, he wasn’t talking about who Mickey was, but was talking about how Mickey behaved with him. He was feeling the burden of being the sick one, who needed caring. He couldn’t face the change the bipolar was bringing in his life. It wasn’t about who Mickey was becoming, it was about who Ian was becoming to himself and to everyone else and to Mickey.
Jimmy: “I’m not going to Dubai anymore.” Fiona: “What?” Jimmy: “I cancelled the trip. Already gave up everything for you.” Fiona: “Why are you doing this?” Jimmy: “We were right together, we are right together” Fiona: “You said this was the biggest job you’ve ever had.”
Here, I’m just gonna say that this shows that Jimmy’s still lying, that Jimmy hasn’t changed as a person. Jimmy is still there, while Fiona’s in another place. Plus, Jimmy lying means the relationship wouldn’t be healthy, the relationship wouldn’t change. Jimmy’s still ready to lie to win Fiona back. He didn’t cancel the trip. The trip was already canceled. He’s trying to manipulate her.
On the other hand, Mickey never lied to Ian. And since Season 4, he even stopped lying to everybody else, and to himself. Because, again, he grew as a character, Jimmy didn’t. If anyone was lying after Mickey went to jail, it was Ian. Ian lied to himself to get over the pain he felt after splitting up with Mickey, and told himself he didn’t love him anymore, didn’t care. Luckily, last episode, we saw Ian resist for a bit, and then let go pretty quickly. He lied to Trevor, but he didn’t lie to Mickey. He’s being true to himself and to him, by showing that he can’t let go, he won’t let go. He still loves him.
Jimmy: “I don’t care about any of that. I want us to have a life. Just tell me you want the same thing. Just tell me.” Fiona: “Part of me does want that. But I need something else now.” Jimmy: “Gus?” Fiona: “I don’t know. But I know it’s not you. You have to let me go. You have to let me let you go. I need you to do that for me.”
Final part. Jimmy lies again, but is honest when he says that he wants them to have a life together. And Fiona is honest when she tells him that part of her wants to be with him, but the other part, the strongest one, know that she doesn’t need him now. She needs something else. Probably, stability. Health. Rest. She knows she doesn’t need Jimmy. In Ian’s conversation with Fiona, he says that nothing gives him the thrill Mickey gives him. And you know that by thrill, he means emotion, happiness, passion, being there, being loved. Yes, that’s right: not even his job gives him the ‘thrill’, and it’s a thrilling job, I assure you. So Ian knows that he needs stability, but he also knows that he needs feeling things again, because he has gone two years without Mickey, and has realized that he’s never really been happy all along. He doesn’t want Mickey to let him go, although Mickey gives him the freedom to. Mickey is ready. “This goodbye?”, he asks, ready to be rejected once again. Ian seems conflicted: he knows he’s making a choice that will put his routine, his health, his freedom, at risk. And yet he takes that choice for the third time in the episode. Because he knows what he needs. And what he needs, right now, is Mickey.
The writers have built Ian’s self-confidence, his self-awareness, his judgement up since Season 6. he’s been building himself up since then. So there’s no point in pretending that his decision-making has failed this time. There’s no point in pretending like he’s manic and that’s why he chose risk-taking, dangerous thug Mickey. Why make him grow as a character for the whole season, only to then say “ops, he made a bad choice, guess he wasn’t as stable as you thought, huh?”
That’s not only boring and stupid, but it’s insulting towards Ian Gallagher’s character.
