he's badass and complex and and and ;~;


There is no denying Dean Winchester is a badass. He spent a year in purgatory covered in the blood and guts of his enemies. However, being a complex man, he is also an adorable neat freak, and a bit of a germaphobe. This compilation attempts to highlight this adorable quirk!

agenderraskel  asked:

You call Steve "punk". Have you ever slipped punk clothing into his closet? Does he wear it?

well, he absolutely refuses to wear combat boots. which i find personally offensive, because i wear steeltoe combats almost every day. but steve insists that having tromped across most of europe in steeltoes and only being saved from trenchfoot thanks to the miracle of old-timey science, he will no longer wear combat boots unless theyre the custom ones that go with his cap costume. sorry. uniform. and that since sneakers exist in the future and are, and i quote ‘like walking around with old mrs mckinneys angel cake for shoes, buck, its great’ he will not be wearing boots if he doesnt have to. 

the day we talked him into skinny jeans was pretty great. have you ever seen a dog doing that high-step when you put shoes on them?? he looked like that for the first half hour or so. and then he tried to ‘jog’ up the tower lobby steps, and split his pants open at the crotch. 

it was a good day for the ladies (and some of the gents. you know. the ones who didnt immediately grow inferiority complexes) in the lobby of stark tower. 

it was not a good day for steve rogers. 

putting steve in any kind of plaid just makes him look like a lumberjack, not a punk. so that doesnt work.

steve cant wear black without looking like a vampire, hes so pale. but one time he borrowed my dont-touch-me black leather motorcycle jacket and managed to make that look badass for a little while. and then he let a little girl in central park facepaint a sunflower on his left cheek, which pretty much spoiled and sort of badass look he might have been managing. which wasnt much, because he was still wearing khakis. 


Class on BBC America

ok so if youre following me and haven’t watched class already, i wouldn’t blame you if you just looked away from the title lmao, i am quite forceful when it comes to this

ANYWAY, as most of you probably know already, the new series of doctor who premieres on bbc america tonight at 9/8c (if you’re in the small minority who doesn’t just download it illegally when it comes out in the uk), and that’s awesome!! but before you’re tempted to switch off your tv immediately and scream on social media - there is a new show starting straight after, and you should really watch it

class is a spin-off of doctor who set at coal hill school, with a torchwood-like premise in that there is a tear in space and time which attracts a bunch of aliens. the cast is HUGELY diverse - there’s a black girl who is super intelligent and skipped two school years, but is still vulnerable and cares deeply about her family (and calls out another character on his alien racist attitudes); a sikh boy who talks about his religion, and loses a leg in the first episode and has to get used to using a prosthetic, and a gay polish character who deals with homophobia, but that isn’t his entire character. the only two white males are in a gay relationship, and there are two interracial relationships as well.

also it’s not written by moffat if that helps - its written by YA author patrick ness who’s written stuff like a monster calls, more than this, the rest of us just live here, etc.

HOWEVER, at the moment, due to lack of advertising from the bbc, only being shown online and being given a shitty time slot when it actually was shown on bbc one, it is very low on viewing figures, and in danger of not being renewed for a second season. at the moment, the bbc haven’t made a decision, and it entirely depends on how well it does in america - so it’s crucial that you watch it!! even if you don’t want to actually watch the show, at least leave your tv on after dw, to boost the viewing figures. posting about in online, specifically twitter and instagram since those are the only ones the bbc care about, would also help a lot, and signing the petition for season two (that i can’t link right now as im on mobile)

(the characters i didn’t mention are brilliant as well - there’s a girl who seems like a typical hufflepuff at the start but then becomes probably the second most badass character in the show, gay alien prince who’s socially awkward and adorable but also super morally grey and pretty much a slave owner, and although he doesn’t think so he gets called out on it a lot, and an alien freedom-fighter physics teacher who has hilarious lines but also a really complex personality and backstory and gets a shit ton of character development. she’s my fave. i love her a lot.)

tl;dr: class is on bbc america tonight at 10/9c (after dw), its really good, watch it or it won’t get a second season and i’ll cry

Off the back of my first post regarding Space Dad Kolivan have some headcannons/ideas/random stuff!!

Lance narrating: “Funnily enough, the deadliest of us is also the dadliest”

Hunk slips while pulling food out of the oven, Kolivan catches the food in one hand and Hunk in the other.

He likes to throw Pidge. Straight up at dubious heights, across the room, behind the enemy’s lines during a battle as some kind of flanking maneuver. He’ll just pick her up and toss her bc he can

He’ll actively and noticeably censor himself in the paladins’ presence.

Always manages to land a perfectly centered slap on the back of Lance’s head as situationally required

He’s legit the “I’m everywhere” dad

He has a Dad Chair on the castle, even when he’s not there it’s left for him

T H E   T H E R M O S T A T

He’s like a reverse gremlin, little inconsequential fixes that took the back-burner are suddenly being done and no one knows how or who by until Coran catches Kolivan adjusting something and he’s just like “it helps me think”

Kolivan insists on cooking a traditional Galra meal bc Kieth needs to taste his heritage

He’s a fab cook and Galra cooking is bae

Kolivan is very proud of himself and gladly teaches Hunk the recipes

He can drive and park any vehicle perfectly on the first try regardess of whether or not he has prior experience with said vehicle

He even once managed to drift into a flawless parallel park during a high speed escape

Can turn any situation or funny story into a Valuable Life Lesson

“Alright paladins, we’re going to do this clearly dangerous and highly risky thing in a needlessly complex yet still over-simplified way”

Creative in the most unusually creative way.

*explosion* the team comes running in to see Kolivan crouching with his back to the blast, looking badass. Kolivan stands up revealing a previously completely hidden Pidge, not a hair out of place

*is holding a baby, baby screams in delight* A MIGHTY WARRIORS CRY

Highkey protective af

Totally chill with Pidge climbing all over him, he doesn’t even notice the extra weight

One time Hunk found them in the bridge doing some modifications together and took a picture bc it was too cute

Kolivan was standing, leaning on the control panel doing things while Pidge was perched on his shoulders with her laptop on the top of his head, typing

They were both so hyper-focused that neither noticed Hunk quietly squeeing

He can and will fall asleep anywhere

but will wake up and be totally alert in 0.3 sec if he needs to catch someone/something

One time Kieth was standing on the kitchen counter looking for food on the top shelves bc he’s the second shortest person and he stepped back too far but Kolivan just reached out and pushed him back into a standing position without even looking up from his reading

Reasons why Naomi Misora is superior

•She stepped on Beyond Birthday

•She sent Beyond Birthday running when he tried to attack her

•Stopped Beyond from winning at the last second. Without Naomi’s help B might have actually beaten L.

•She kicked L down a flight of stairs.

•She was so intelligent she had to be killed off early or she would have figured things out and Kira would have been caught too soon

•Naomi inspired L to learn Capoeira. She was inspiring to L and he seems like a pretty hard guy to impress.

•Have you seen how cool Capoeira looks and how much time it would take to learn such a complex skill. I can barley do a cartwheel without hurting myself.

•The sass towards B though lmao

•Sick style 10/10 I would love to dress like her 24/7

•Has a legitimate sense of justice and morals unlike half of the death note cast who claim that they do

•So brutal and badass she was nicknamed Misora Massacre by her freaking FBI colleagues.

Do you know what’s so amazing about Chris Pine playing Steve Trevor?

Steve Trevor’s character is complex because of its simplicity. He’s handsome. He’s a spy. He’s smart. He kicks ass. But he’s the sidekick and he’s human. And for all his grandeur, his character is as supporting as it needs to be to one badass OP lead.

I fell in love with Steve Trevor (physically) because, wtf, who wouldn’t? Bloody Pine and his blue eyes. But then again, it got me thinking. What if it was another actor? Would he be able to achieve the kind of smolder Chris delivers? Or the kind of awkwardness he exudes whenever he gets ‘Diana-flustered’? I mean, returning to that pool scene where he was playing with the water; it was so simple yet it already showed to the audience so much about Steve Trevor. And that level of restraint yet giving in his acting is amazing.

That tower scene where he tries to have Diana help him? Those moments? Idk about you but that was pure 50 emotions in one stammering beat. He was like, ‘please help me’ and ‘omg don’t be mad’ and ‘i don’t know’ and ‘i love you’ and ‘you’re exasperating’ and ‘i need to go’ and etc etc etc. I was stunned, “What was that?” And it made me think, what if the actor who played Steve wasn’t Chris Pine? Would I still fall in love with Trevor?

I’m not into ‘who’s going to play the love interest?’ of superheroes. Despite the fact that they do make the hero a little more human (because love makes us all human) and a little less unattainable. But I couldn’t really care more for them. But for Steve Bloody Trevor, Pine just had to make him a planet. Yes, because suddenly, Steve created his own gravity and pulled me towards him out of nowhere. 

Pine was cruelly amazing (both in acting and in exploding my ovaries). He made Trevor breathing for me. Just like how Gal electrifies Wonder Woman to life for me. I know Wonder Woman is strong and amazing and powerful. But after seeing the movie, it came to me. Somehow, no matter how strong and powerful and perfectly godly one character could be. S/He would always need somebody like Steve Trevor in their lives. 

With No Particular Place To Go

Pairing: Dean x Reader

Warnings: Fluff, fluff, fluff oh and, did I mention fluff?

Summary: Dean Winchester loved a lot of things. But if he could choose his favorite it’d be the pointless car rides he’d  go with you.

Challenge/ Prompt: This was a challenge hosted by the amazing @butiaintgonnaloveem for Baby’s 50th Birthday :D My prompt was No Particular Place To Go by Chuck Berry 

A/N: I gotta admit, I really enjoyed writing this one -even though it took 5 friggin days- I really want to thank @imagining-supernatural for beta’ing this fic. She is amazing and had she not pointed out all that stuff this fic would probably be trash. Thank you so much <3

honestly i’m pissed first i had to deal with all these idiot antis and now i have to scroll through nonstop text posts about how y’all didn’t think hunk and lance kept their character development from season one because they weren’t the focus

it was not their turn for further development, first of all. and we got to see lance save an entire brainwashed civilization himself!!! lance is heroic and adventurous and he doesn’t crack under pressure! that’s so freaking badass!!!!

 hunk started his journey to becoming brave and selfless in season one, but clearly he’s still at the point where his heart isn’t fully in anything unless it directly affects someone he has a personal connection with. otherwise, he’s mostly about self-preservation.

 AND YES, THERE WERE MORE FAT/FOOD JOKES THAN NECESSARY, I KNOW, AND I’M NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT EITHER. but stop ignoring all the new stuff about hunk we saw this season. He has like, not just an obsession with eating, he has a Passion for Cooking. He’s not a gluttonous idiot, he’s a complex person who’s interested in the culinary arts. you would miss earth food too if you were already a critic before and suddenly you’re stuck trying to figure out weird bland space food. 


when hunk got stuck indebted to vrepit sal, we saw hunk take that shit in stride! he saw the situation and was like “i can fuckin work with this” y’know, LIKE HE DID IN SEASON ONE WHEN ALL OF Y’ALL WERE SCREAMING ABOUT HIS ENGINEERING SKILLS, INNOVATION, AND INTUITION. we got to see hunk take fucking charge in that kitchen!!! he was having NO foolishness!!! it’s nice to see hunk being confident enough to not take no for an answer when it comes to his area of expertise.

and that’s just the POSITIVE development we see in season two! there was negative stuff we learned about them too!

lance is still super insecure around shiro, and especially keith. lance feels threatened by keith’s mysteriousness and how close he is with their leader and lashes out at him at every opportunity. keith does his best to be civil and avoid conflict, LIKE I TOLD Y’ALL HE DOES back in my super long keith post. sometimes keith is able to keep the peace between them, and sometimes he gives into it because he’s just a competitive person and lance keeps provoking him. i don’t think lance fully understands yet that keith isn’t always looking to outshine him.

we also learn that hunk uses humor as a defense mechanism, (much like shiro.) i mean, i guess we kinda already saw that in season one, but like, this season it’s more clear that he’s just deadpan joking and not actually stupid. and he can be super insensitive!!! like, the whole “galra keith” thing was funny for like two seconds, but hunk is fuckin milking it, and guess what!! that shit is racist!!!!!!! hunk probably thinks it’s not the same thing because it’s about keith being an alien and not him being two different earth races, there’s a disconnect in his mind about it. hunk is not the most precious cinnamon roll we’ve built him up to be!!! hunk is kinda an asshole!!! i look forward to that issue being dealt with in the upcoming season/(or possibly?comics). 


Monsta X: ideal type/who they'd fall for

Shownu:  might be a huge and intimidating bear when you first look at him, but he’s all squishy and soft on the inside. I bet he’d absolutely love a cute significant other, who does lots and lots of aegyo to make him weak in the knees. He’d want this person to be reliable, since he’d always be down for them no matter what. Someone who captures his heart as soon as he meets them, and he’d have it no other way- he wants to be totally knocked off his feet.

Wonho:  since he’s so mysterious and hard to figure out at times, I think he’d be with someone with similar aspects. He wouldn’t reveal his feelings too quickly, in fear of chasing them away, and slowly works his way into this person’s heart. He’s inevitably charming and could totally get anyone he wants, so it’ll be a challenge to catch his interest and keep it. But once they have, Hoseok would have no hesitation to give all his heart and body.

Minhyuk:  he’s got such an appealing outlook on life, and this could interest anyone who’s gotten close enough to him. Definitely isn’t vulnerable, despite his behavior, and guards his feelings heavily, not wanting anyone to get close enough to break his heart. He’d fall in love slow and steady, probably with someone who he’s met and known for several years- someone who’s already like a best friend to him, but always had been something more in his mind. Doesn’t have an ‘ideal type’, he’d rarher get to know the person on a complex level and know them like the back of his hand.

Kihyun:  okay so I totally see him going for the ‘badass rebel’ type, as this would keep the relationship exciting and interesting, always. Plus, I don’t think he’s as innocent as he seems lmao. I don’t think he’d like to be with someone who’s constantly wanting to stay at home and have everyday routines- he wants adventure in his life, and would love to find a best friend turned lover in the process. So if you could awaken the excitement and rush within him, then he’s already head over heels.

Hyungwon:  he’s such a complicated person bc he’s so quiet most of the time!!! I think he’d eventually want to settle down and be in a VERY serious relationship, and give the other person whatever they want/need, bc he isn’t the type to date casually. He’d go for someone who doesn’t act cute all the time, and knows when to take things seriously, but still has a lighthearted side to them. He’d think of this person as his everything- his best friend, the love of his life, and he’d be similar to them in many ways.

Jooheon:  all aegyo everything, this boy will not settle for less. He’d love someone who challenges him everyday, all while staying cute and taking care of themselves and their appearance. He’d look for someone with similar interests, and that’s probably how he’d meet this person- maybe at a sports game or a friend’s concert. Would want to do absolutely everything together, bc all he wants is for someone to join him in the adventure of life.

I.M.:  this kid has a very distinct way of thinking and behaving, and I think if someone captures his attention from day one, then he’s all in. Unlike some of his hyungs, he wouldn’t want to befriend you first, and would make his feelings known before you mistake his intentions. He’d want someone who is full of love and support, and be a shoulder to cry on when the stress is too much. They’d also better be okay with him making the relationship public, bc he’d post nonstop pictures (vague ones like holding hands, matching shoes, and no one knows who this other person is lmao).

Tony Padilla x Clay Jensen

Words: 1,845 or something lol

A/N: I know I´m not the greatest writer but I needed to do this :)

Clay has observed that there is a really scary beast crawling in the well-formed body of his dear friend –Skye has told him more than once that it is pretty normal if you live in the kind of place that the latino boy does, however the light eyed boy knows that there is something underneath-. (Maybe is his anxiety talking but Clay can’t control the overwhelming feeling of worry that pokes his ribs every single time he sees Tony absentmindedly rubbing his side.)

The thing that has been bothering him was the tanned skin of the mustang boy. His skin is smooth in almost every single place, yet, at the bottom of his back, there are some rough edges where his scars lay. And Clay has always wanted to touch them. (Always as in “a month ago”)

Not in a sexual or romantic way, of course not. They had been friends since forever, or what Clay thought it was forever.

He just simply felt like tracing those rough lines and pressing hard the tips of his fingers to make them go away, nothing else.

At first it wasn’t so hard to bear, he was too occupied by Hannah and her tapes to take notice or care about those evident marks, however when he finally snapped out of the horrific tapes, the knot in his throat unconsciously tightened whenever he had the chance to gaze at the back of his mate. (Brad noticed how Clay gulped and stood as far from the latino as he could manage after a few days, fortunately he had the decency to question what was wrong before punching him in a “brotherly” way on the left arm and “calming” him saying he had Tony protected from everything. That didn’t help.)

My soul mate is Matthew. It will always be Matthew…. 

In all honesty I almost went with James Harvey from The Ticket….that’s a raw performance. One that won’t get any awards or go much further than an indie theater and Netflix… but it’s one of his best. BEST. EVER. How he makes James bitter, sardonic, testy, egotistical, and caring all at the same time…and sexy af… and yet from his first tinges of guilt in talking to Grace outside the church to his gut wrenching breakdown at the end. I could easily choose James Harvey.

But I’m throwing my hat in the ring (as always) for Nick Guest… I’ve said it before. I’ll say it again.

I see the same raw vulnerability that Dan brought to Nick in David Haller. He draws you into the character and before you know it you feel like you’d die to protect him from all harm.  It’s my mission in life to protect Nick from the harsh, cold, non-beautiful world… He trusted people too much.

I want to quote –not his beloved Henry James but F. Scott Fitzgerald to him “they’re careless people”– not worthy of your love. Except for Catherine– whose idea of getting him to understand reality was to make his life crash and burn…. and I’m still not sure he got it.  He’s ever in a (futile?) search for the infinite line of beauty (in form, in love, in life).

“He wanted pure compliments, just as he wanted unconditional love.”

Dan will never be better than he was in The Line of Beauty. He might be equally as good…he won’t be better. He holds the screen… you feel him …you get Nick. This was his first big role. He’s so young. And yet so powerful and controlling in his performance. He’s so assured playing an unsure young man. I still find it astonishing on the tenth time watching it as I did the first time. 

I shall stop my rambling now :)

Why the MCU missed the boat when it came to marketing Hawkeye...

Much like many other Hawkeye fans, with each and every new Marvel movie that is released, we hold our breath and hope that our favourite bandaged, broken badass will actually be allowed to come out of his shell and be, well, HAWKEYE.

He’s gotten a lot of flack as a character, usually due to his stiff, stoic, far-too-serious portrayal in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But I came up with ten reasons why Marvel and Disney REALLY missed the boat when it came to marketing Hawkeye, and why he could’ve been just as popular and well-loved a character as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and all of the other characters that are branded as the “real Avengers”, whilst poor Hawkeye and Black Widow are typically removed from merch and ignored by the marketing department.

The first thing that really interested me about Hawkeye, and the thing which upset me the MOST when it wasn’t included in the MCU, is the fact that Clint Barton is almost COMPLETELY DEAF in both ears. In Earth-616, he’s been deafened several times over, having it surgically fixed on one occasion and having special hearing aids constructed by Tony Stark on another. It baffles me why Marvel and Disney wouldn’t want to promote a deaf superhero to children who may also share the same disability and would take great solace and comfort in seeing a badass superhero with the same affliction as them. Here’s to hoping Clint comes too close to a violent explosion in Civil War

My second favourite thing about Clint Barton as a character in a setting such as the Avengers team is the fact that he is absolutely, unapologetically, unashamedly, 100% HUMAN. There is nothing enhanced or supernatural or magical about him, he doesn’t rely on a high-tech exoskeleton or technologically advanced suit – he’s just a normal dude who happens to be able to keep pace with superhumans, legends, and gods due to his incredible archery ability. And not just keep pace – unlike in the movies, in the comics Clint is an essential and critical member of the team, despite the fact that he’s not in any way special. If that’s not inspiring to the everyday person who feels like they can’t accomplish anything compared to their friends, I don’t know what is.

The Hunger Games, Arrow, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Tomb Raider – archers are sexy, and pop culture is LOVING them. I never really understood why Marvel chose not to push their own badass bow-slinger given the reception received by DC Comics’ Oliver Queen and District 12’s Katniss Everdeen.

The hardest thing to get through to people who have no idea who Clint Barton is beyond Renner’s reluctant, rigid acting is that Hawkeye is NOT a character who stands on a rooftop as a silent, deadly badass, shooting off arrow after arrow with a stoic face behind his sunglasses. Hawkeye is the most self-sabotaging, hapless, ridiculous, damaged, broken fuck-up, who spouts cocky one-liners and does his best to make it through life in one piece. Who can’t relate to a character like that?

Matt Fraction’s work writing for Hawkeye, particularly in alliance with David Aja’s artwork (which captured and reflected Clint’s personality PERFECTLY), has really put the kooky superhero on the map as one of Marvel’s best. Don’t believe me? Go buy Hawkeye: My Life As A Weapon, read it, and get back to me!

In the world of Marvel comics, Hawkeye rises to the task of training, coaching, and sometimes even acting as a personal therapist towards many of the new recruits to the Avengers. He’s a staunch supporter of Captain America, and would follow him to the ends of the earth. But one of the best relationships Clint has is with his sidekick Kate Bishop, whom he worships and respects for her skill despite the fact that she’s much younger and much less experienced than he is. I am praying that the Russo Brothers give Clint a bit of a mentor role with the newbies in Civil War and touch more on what we saw between him and Wanda Maximoff at the climax of Age of Ultron.

If you’re a comic book fan who believes in equality between the sexes, and you’ve never heard of The Hawkeye Initiative, you need to check this shit out RIGHT NOW! In order to combat sexism in the way female superheroes are drawn and portrayed, artists across the Internet have been redrawing the ridiculous poses women are often drawn in (usually a butt-shot), but replacing the heroine with Hawkeye instead. This has given Hawkeye more of a reach than people think, as most Internet-goers who know their memes will have heard of him before even if they aren’t an Avengers fan.

Hawkeye is one of the mouthiest Marvel characters (Deadpool aside, obviously), but I suppose it’s hard to find time for the side characters to act as they normally would when all of the funny moments, comic relief, and good witty one-liners are given to The Only Four Avengers Disney’s Marketing Department Thinks People Are Capable Of Caring About. Blah.

If you don’t know who Kate Bishop is and you like strong, independent, badass female superheroes, you’ve been missing out and a Google search or a trip to the comic book store is very much in order. Kate spends most of her time (when she’s not helping run the Young Avengers) running after Clint, telling him to stop being a screw up, saving him from various bad guys, and assisting him more like a PARTNER than a sidekick. He even let her keep his name, figuring she was badass enough that she’d earned it – you gotta love a guy without an ego complex! I’m still hoping Kate Bishop will eventually show up in the MCU… and that she isn’t destroyed in the same way Clint was.

While a lot of us can empathize with Tony Stark’s self-destructive tendencies, or Bruce Banner’s anxiety and rage issues, I firmly believe that Hawkeye is the type of character who, if given a proper and equal shot at the silver screen, could capture the hearts of children and adults everywhere for one simple reason: we’ve all been Clint Barton before. We’ve all been a self-sabotaging, hapless, ridiculous, damaged, broken fuck-up at some point in our lives, and this charming, sweet, cinnamon roll of a character is exactly what we need to remind ourselves that while we aren’t in any way perfect, while we are flawed and broken and are struggling to get through life, that’s okay. Because even without superpowers, you still matter. You’re still important. You’re still a superhero!

Ronnie Soak put on his helmet, and Chaos drew his sword. It glinted and, like the glass clock, looked like the intrusion into the world of something a great deal more complex.
“Some old man told me you live and learn,” he said. “Well. I have lived, and now I’ve learned that the edge of a sword is infinitely long. I’ve also learned how to make damn good yogurt, although this is not a skill I intend to employ today. Shall we go get ‘em, boys?”

In His Lap (Mick x Plus Size! Reader) Imagines - Request


To my darling anon,

I hope you don’t mind; but I actually combined your idea with another reader’s request, since it was very similar to yours. In addition to, I apologize for the late post. Due to technical difficulties - and just the fact that life sorta got in the way - I am turning this piece into a New Year’s prompt. I’m sorry for the inconvenience, dear anon, but, if you find that you aren’t happy with the piece, please let me know and I’ll write you a seperate Christmas one…!

With love,

Kendra tries to get you to talk to Mick at the New Year’s Eve Party. At first, you said no; but, after taking a shot, you gained the courage you needed…


“Talk to him!”

“I can’t!”

“You can!”

“No, I can’t!”

“Yes , ________, you can!” Crossing her arms, Kendra gave you a gently scolding look. “Please do yourself a favor and just walk over there.”

Upon hearing her suggestion, you flushed bright red.

While you have had a crush on Mick for the past few weeks now, you still had yet to start a conversation with the pyromaniac; much less, confess your feelings to him.

Chances were he probably never noticed you.

I mean, who would? Your harsh inner voice scoffed. You’re not pretty, you have no sex appeal and - worst of all - you’re fat. What kind of guy would want THAT?

A small part of you hoped it would be Mick.

Though many assumed there wasn’t much to the guy - what, with his brutish behavior and vulgar language - a part of you liked to think there was more to him.

That he would somehow accept you the way you were.

Peering over at the poker table across the room, you watched your darling hulk of a man play against Leonard and Jax. His brows furrowed, he focused all his attention towards the hand he was dealt with.

You bit your lip. He just looks so…badass.

“Oh my god, ________,” Kendra turned her eyes up to the heavens, before shaking her head. It was her typical ‘don’t-make-me-do-this’ gesture. “You’re a great girl! You could so go over there and say ‘hi’! He’s not that complex of a man to talk to, anyway…”

Viking AU? PS your blog is my entire life

Thank you! 

Mmmm, ok. (I’m basing this on the How to Train your Dragon Universe and no one can stop me because they’re technically Vikings)

also I didn’t really know how to answer this so here’s a variation of it rip 

  • all of the Dregs are dragon trainers 
  • and since they all come from different cultures guess what
  • that’s right diverse dragons
  • no two dragons alike
  • because they’re all from mythos of their riders’ respective cultures
  • Kaz has the most trouble out of all of them because he’s not used to flying with his bad leg bouncing and needing to steer his dragon in different directions 
  • Wylan fashions him a leg rest that simultaneously works as a steerer 
  • Bonus: he points his cane in the direction where he wants to go when his leg hurts too much 
  • and he does it like a conqueror on a mission to obliterate his enemies 
  • his dragon inherently knows his rider’s tendency to act #extra this way but constantly obliges him 
  • Kaz’s dragon is the only one that’s pitch black and has no official recorded name because it hadn’t been discovered by anyone yet
  • Kaz calls it Untitled like the drama king he is
  • Inej and her Balaur get along like a house on fire and no one knows how this seven headed dragon got the urge to willingly let her ride it 
  • but everyone subtly backs away Inej and her dragon the next time she’s around, because if a tiny slip of a girl can summon this giant dragon, she’s definitely got some hidden or deadly power up her sleeves 
  • the both of them do these sudden dips and spirals down to earth that scare the Dregs half out of their minds 
  • as in, the Balaur doesn’t snap out its wings until the pair of them are skimming the water or ground 
  • and that’s not even covering the acrobatic tricks and acts that Inej coordinates for them in the air
  • also all the dragons have a fondness of Inej and only she can get them to collectively calm down or slaughter their enemies
  • Jesper and his Aido Hwedo have the closest rider-dragon relationship
  • his dragon flashes off its colorful scales constantly, so when they’re in flight, it looks like they’re a moving rainbow 
  • whenever the Dregs are flying into battle, they can always depend on seeing a blur of deadly color hurtling down to their enemies and Jesper’s elated scream on the wind
  • it can bring storms to any battle and simultaneously gives them rainbows to admire afterwards 
  • he constantly compliments his dragon all the time and it purrs melodically and nuzzles its snout against Jesper’s head all the time
  • Wylan gets a Wyvern and Jesper won’t shut up for weeks afterwards about “Wy and Wy”
  • when he finds out the Wyvern’s blind Wylan trains it to fly by scent by dangling different things in front of its snout
  • also he and his dragon work out this complex touch code whenever Wylan wants to fly up, spiral across, or just fall asleep on the its back 
  • whenever Wylan does fall asleep, the Wyvern folds up its large wings to shield its rider from the night terrors and any rain or snow 
  • Nina, like the badass she is, manages to tame a Zmey Gorynych 
  • its three heads are somewhat snappy if someone stands too close to them but it has an affinity for toffee, something that Nina discovers with delight 
  • thanks to Nina, she’s the official ‘trainer’ when the dragons land together and swivel their heads toward her for treats (and when Inej’s off duty) 
  • who knew dragons all over the world liked sweet things?
  • all three heads of Nina’s dragon have differing personalities, but only she manages to calm them down whenever they’re having moods 
  • Matthias just sighs and gets on his Landvættir while his friends soar above his head 
  • but sometimes Nina orders her Zmey Gorynych to pick both of them up
  • the first time her dragon does this, both of let out inhumane screams 
  • Matthias’ dragon pretends to hate being carried out like this because it’s primarily a land dragon, but it secretly loves being in the air since it’s never flown before 
  • Matthias sets up all the obstacle courses with Wylan for the Dregs to train and he’s surprised how much fun he has when they all dodge and weave in the air and openly laughing into the sky
  • Kuwei and his Fucanglong just float above the earth and side eye each other all the time when they see their companions, human and scaly, start up their antics again 
  • look as a certified Asian™ I can tell you 1000% that Asian dragons are the chillest dragons in all the mythos of the world, so I’m completely convinced that these two watch on the sidelines and watch the drama unfold
  • they also put on collaborative fire shows, something that Kuwei’s dragon loves, because he’s found a fellow fire-starter  
  • but when someone tries to hurt the Dregs and their dragons, Kuwei’s Fucanglong turns absolutely terrifying

Help! What show is your tag "tmk" referring to? I've never heard of it, but everyone looks so beautiful in it.


the show is bbc’s the musketeers, which i would arguably describe as a solid mix of pirates of the caribbean, zorro, and brooklyn nine-nine

dunno if you’ve ever read alexander dumas’ original book, but most people (?) (most people means me) agree that bbc’s adaptation is probably the most accurate to the spirit of the book and the essence of all the characters, who are captured/cast EXCEPTIONALLY well and are all utterly delightful, not just because theyre so pretty but because theyre all good noodles trying their best who also happen to be varying degrees of Semi-Functional Human Disaster

except rochefort, good riddance hes dead now

anyways. bonus features include:

- utterly gorgeous (if a bit historically inaccurate) costuming

- breathtaking cinematography

- tom burke’s line delivery


- soft beardy men holding babies and singing (u would think i am exaggerating but this actually happens quite a lot)

- women with swords


- consistently kicks any semblance of toxic masculinity in the ass (so many hugs and kisses u guys its beautiful)

- arguably the character with the strongest most victorious and well-written character arc is a young woman who achieves everything she was meant for completely deservedly without once compromising her goodness or kindness or softness while simultaneously being powerful, strong, and so very very respected

tbh i recommend this show to everyone!! its obviously a bit ridiculous and melodramatic in places, and the romances, whilst SO PURE AND GOOD AND WELL DONE, are so extra (i thrive on the tropes i really do) – but it never takes itself seriously enough for those things to matter. the cast are obviously having the time of their lives, and the writing is actually really amazing for majority of the show, imo

anyways! its on netflix in several countries i think? yall should check it out tbh, if only so u dont hate me for posting about it so much


- boobs and “fuck” because showtime
- Edgy Cooper makes me so upset to watch but obviously that’s intentional so kudos lynch i guess
- if shelly and james hook up i stg
- it was a sweet sendoff for log lady :(
- andy and lucy are ADORABLE, and i love that hawk was promoted. but is truman coming back or…?
- i was pleased to have at least some grasp of the plot - not nearly enough, but with lynch it’s different
- okay so if your single job is to fucking watch a box, im pretty sure its a bad idea to a) invite a hot fellow heterosexual white lady into your office, b) engage in a wholesome closed-eye make out session, and c) BANG AT AN ANGLE WHERE YOU CAN’T WATCH THE FUCKING BOX. HE COULD HAVE MULTITASKED AND PAID ATTENTION TO BOTH BEFORE THE GODDAMN SILENCE FROM DOCTOR WHO POPPED OUT AND TURNED THE SHOW INTO AMERICAN HORROR STORY SEASON 7
- Laura and Leland were great.
- JERRY HORNE!!!!!! He looked like he went through a midlife crisis and began growing weed in the mountains right next to his own private petting zoo. like that whole look was fucking iconic - his mother’s beanie, the santa beard, the khaki shorts OVER pants…. thank god for jerry horne
- okay here’s the thing shaggy from scooby doo should not have been in this, because when that dude got arrested all i could think or say was “ruh-ro”
- i liked phyllis though, she was like catherine martell-level badass. too bad dumb Edgy Cooper had to take her out
- i really liked the lady from ruby’s apartment complex with the dog. 10/10
- Edgy Cooper’s Edge Squad looks like the scooby doo kids if they did hard meth instead of pot
- i hate that this reboot keeps reminding of me of scooby doo
- idk man some of those graphics looked straight outta spy kids
- SPEAKING OF WHICH, what the FUCK was going on with that TREE THING????????????????????????? I COULDN’T STOP LAUGHING???
- at one point hawk was so close to saying “dale cooper? i haven’t heard that name in years”
- im liking constance, i hope she comes back
- the police dept in south dakota had a single mountain on their patch, which makes me wonder if it’s like the doppelgänger of twin peaks? like one peak? idk the episodes gave us a lot of screentime there - we saw a murder, a school day, an investigation, law enforcement, cooper’s doppelgänger, wacky townies, and containment, which is clearly a theme in this new series. let the theories begin
- it didn’t have the twin peaks heart to it that i adore. idk it wasn’t nearly as enjoyable as even my first time watching the original series - it was just frustrating. the quote “something wonderful and strange” kind of applies here: with the original series, i immediately could tell that it was something BOTH wonderful and strange. with this, so far, it’s just… strange.
- let’s talk about product placement. Edgy Cooper’s ownership of a Surface Pro raises so many questions: does he prefer tablet mode or laptop mode? did he lose his stylus pen? did he literally go through the process of walking into a microsoft store, asking to purchase a surface pro, specifying that “no, [he] wants the BLACK keyboard, not the pink,” paying with Real Cooper’s credit card, and also picking up a copy of How to Understand Modern Technology for Dummies because he’s possessed by an ancient lodge spirit that speaks in a series of animalistic screams and laughter?
- honestly im just happy they mentioned garland briggs, it gives me hope. threw me a bone
- Real Cooper better get the fuck out of The Void real quick so i can hear more musings on tibet and idealistic quirky comments about philosophy and coffee
- all in all, stressful but i mean worth it i guess
- lynch continues to treat women like objects 60% of the time
- im excited, yet nervous, to watch more. i love this show, past and future (sigh), so much!!

anonymous asked:


You know, that’s a really weird murderer. Anyway, THIS IS FUN! Honestly, i’d be dead already, because i don’t really care about convincing anyone when it comes to shipping. Before i start, i’m gonna state that ANYTHING I’LL SAY HERE IS BECAUSE I’M FIGHTING FOR MY LIFE, DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONAL, GUYS. These will be pretty much the reasons why i ship them. The first part is a bunch of “objective” reasons (well as objective as it can get, because shipping can’t be a totally objective thing) and the other one is personal, so is up to you when to stop reading this. I apologize in advance for my English.

1)      Levi and Hanji are both really interesting and complex characters. He isn’t just a typical shonen badass guy and she’s not a typical crazy scientist. Levi is actually , from my pov, the most caring and selfless character of all SnK, he literally sacrifices himself over and over for the sake of others. Hanji isn’t just this sweet cheerful character, she has a mesmerizing willpower, nothing can stop her.

2)      They complement each other amazingly. They are both strong and smart, but in different ways. Any virtue that Levi doesn’t have, Hanji has it. Every flaw that Hanji has, Levi doesn’t. And they share two really important virtues, which are the foundation of any healthy relationship: they are both so loyal and passionate. They are literally willing to give up their lives for the people they love.

3)      THEIR INTERACTIONS ARE SO FUN TO READ/WATCH. You just know that, whenever they are together, something great is going to happen. There’s something refreshing about them, about their bickering, about the way they work together, about the way they care about each other so deeply.

4)      I think nobody can understand them more than each other. They have experienced similar things as soldiers, they have lost people they love countless times. I bet they could be sharing each other stories all night long, reminiscing all of those good times with Moblit, Erwin and their old squads.

5)      Okay, i won’t force my ship to anyone, but since i’m fighting for my life here, i’ll say i think there are actual canon hints for Levihan. Like the “Levi bathes Hanji” thing, the “we tell each other everything” thing (don’t u dare telling me Hanji clearly said they’re just friends, cuz isn’t that what every Levihan shipper has as a headcanon? The idea of them not admitting their true feelings and say “we’re just friends” ‘cause they’re both awkward dorks), their interaction in ACWNR, their interaction in Shingeki! Chuugakkou, and the “Levihan is similar to Eremika” thing. It’s up to you, random killer, to decide if that means romance or not.

6)      I hate to fangirl here, but HAVE U SEEN THEM? They are both beautiful and would have babies as beautiful and brilliant as them. What a blessing. I love drawing them so much because their character design is gorgeous. Levi with his cold colors and Hanji with the warm colors, they even complement each other in that aspect.

7)      The Levihan fandom is amazing. Besides the fact that there’s no drama and everyone is so kind, I’m pretty sure this is the ship with the funniest fan art. Even the most serious person would smirk even a little bit while scrolling through the Levihan tag. I mean, we’re all about the laughs. All of the other ships usually focus on the classic romantic stuff (i say “classic” , because from my pov there’s nothing more romantic than the OTP having fun ❤). With Levihan, you’ll get from the most intense fan art to the most ridiculous headcanon, it’s so much fun. Some Levihan artists are pretty well known among non Levihan shippers because of that same reason, like @alemanriq, @trash-god or @drinkyourfuckingmilk . I mean, really, if you’re feeling down and need to cheer up a bit, they’re the way to go.

One of the main arguments people have against Levihan is that they’re too different, so it wouldn’t work. They even go as far as saying that Levi doesn’t really care that much about Hanji. My first response is that both Hanji and Levi are highly misunderstood characters. We don’t have to let our personal experience makes us decide what is love and what isn’t. We all show our love in very different ways.

Now heres my second argument to that idea and this is gonna get personal. If you don’t wanna read about my life, skip this.

-took interesting magic, culture, and world from previous books and expanded it to a whole new level

-referenced tgt for fans to notice but didn’t make them essential to understanding soc

-Fantastical setting but heavily influenced by real geographic and historical settings, making it grounded in reality and therefore more believable

-included CANON diverse and underrepresented characters to ya:
-an abuse victim and a sexual assault survivor
-a chubby female character (whose looks are in no way ever hinted at being diminished)
-two poc main characters, at least one other poc supporting character
-a character with ptsd
-physically disabled character
-a super smart character with learning disabilities
-three lgbt main characters (two of whom are bisexual), and an lgbt supporting character
-two interracial romantic relationships, one of which is a gay relationship

-no character is just there to be the ‘token minority’

-all characters are complex, morally gray, with thorough back stories that effect but don’t define their personalities and relationships

-no one treats the poc and lgbt characters differently, proving fantasy worlds with historical elements don’t have to be homophobic or racist to be realistic

-no minorities killed

-badass female characters with a strong friendship

-character development is so unbelievably good without ‘curing’ or ‘fixing’ anyone, instead more about accepting, and living with themselves

-the only straight white cis man’s story arc is about overcoming prejudice he was raised to believe. And it doesn’t happen all at once, it’s a slow journey for him to realize and struggle with how he was raised, the good and the bad, and how society conditioned him to think about the grisha

-main character is a completely morally gray, self serving criminal, yet you somehow still root for him. When have you ever read a ya protagonist like him?

-made everyone cry over the least popular main character

-easy to follow while still being incredibly intricate and surprising

-hinted at secrets and kept me in the edge of my seat

- finally knowing kaz’s backstory was immensely satisfying, but also made me almost wish I DIDN’T know

-no conclusion was a let down or at all anticlimactic or disappointing

-satisfying ending that also left room for continuation of some people’s stories (I want an Inej fighting for justice story, I want Nina returning to Ravka and traveling to Fjerdan, I want Kuwei adjusting to his new life)


-made me laugh and cry

-no plot holes

REASONS I LOVE @lbardugo :

-wrote soc

-reblogs and writes supportive comments on fanart and edits

-is better at 'sequels’ than jk rowling
