he's mad because he lost time

Can we talk about this scene for a minute? Because I tear up literally every damn time I watch it. 

After losing his son, Iroh fought tirelessly to save his nephew from Ozai’s brainwashing, no matter how hard Zuko tried to push him away. But even after years of sticking by him through every dead end and reckless gambit, Zuko still goes back to his awful father. Once again, Iroh couldn’t save his son and it just kills him

Then the kid shows up with team Avatar, because it turns out some of those proverbs got through to him after all.

But the part that really gets me is Zuko’s perspective.

Sitting outside that tent, he’s so damn scared. He’s so convinced Iroh hates him, he won’t even go in without a pep talk from Katara. Everyone else can see that Iroh will be proud of what his nephew has done since they last met, but Zuko can’t. When Zuko goes in to see the family he disappointed, he’s braced for yelling and fire and rage because that’s what he’s been raised to expect when he screws up. Pissing off his father got him disgraced, burned, tossed in the street, told he didn’t deserve to be alive, and shot at with lightening. A lifetime of experience says he should be scared. He doesn’t expect to be forgiven, he just wants Iroh to know he’s sorry. 

And then Iroh’s not even madNOT EVEN MAD. Mercy and compassion are so alien to Zuko that immediate forgiveness wasn’t even a remote possibility. He’s so utterly confused, but at the same time, so, so relieved. He hasn’t lost his only family. The only person who stayed by him all those years in exile. The only father who loved him.

They both thought they’d lost the only family they had left. Instead, they find themselves closer than they’ve ever been. And I tear up every damn time.

Some more headcanons about Peter growing up on Yondu’s ship

part 1

  • Yondu not having any idea what Terrans eat so he tries to give Peter like, raw meat and stuff, and Peter is disgusted and Yondu is confused (“What’s wrong, boy? It’s fresh! Eat it!”). Though Peter is even more bummed out when he finds out there’s no McDonalds in space.
  • Peter wanting video games but Yondu telling him flying an M-ship is way more exciting than any video game (“All right, if it is, let me fly one!” “You’re too young to fly, you’ll crash.” “No, I won’t! If I can’t play games, at least let me try!” “I said no!” “But Yonduuuuu!” “You’re an annoying little bugger, you know that?” *grumbling and muttering* “All right, follow me, you can give Tulk’s old ship a try, but you put one mark on it- one mark, one spill on the dash- and you don’t get to give it another shot til you’re fourteen.” “KRAGLIN! YONDU’S GONNA LET ME FLY!”)
  • Peter trying to tell the Ravagers about Halloween, but they just don’t get it, and when he scavenges the materials to dress up as a pirate, they don’t notice anything different (except Kraglin, who says, “Nice hat, Pete,” when a rather deflated Peter walks by in full costume).
  • Members of other factions sometimes thinking Kraglin is Peter’s dad, and Yondu getting lowkey pissed off about it (“Course that’s not his dad, ya moron! Quill, get back on the ship and stop causing trouble.”)
  • Kraglin losing his blaster and freaking out cause he can’t find his spare and Peter says, “Just go ask Yondu for one!” and Kraglin is like, “He’ll get mad!” and Peter is confused because apparently, “I do it all the time whenever I lose something, he doesn’t care,” which is weird, because last time Kraglin lost something and went to Yondu to see if he knew where it was, Yondu snapped at him, “If you don’t keep an eye on your stuff, it’s not my problem when you can’t find it.”
  • The crew getting new communication devices and Peter texting with Kraglin all the time so Yondu gets suspicious and is always nosing on Peter’s end (“Who you writing to all the time, boy? You planning a mutiny?”)
  • Peter going through puberty and everyone on the whole ship making fun of his voice cracking up to the point where he ends up getting in a fight with someone because he’s so sick of it and Yondu has to drag them apart and scold them both for being immature, but as he’s walking away, he imitates Peter too.
  • Peter getting his hands on an electric guitar and keeping half the crew from sleeping with his late-night shredding until Yondu finally starts locking Peter’s guitar in his cabin every night at 11:00 (“Kraglin, Yondu said I’m not allowed to practice sick riffs past 11:00…” *Kraglin internally fist-pumps* “Aww, sorry Pete.”)
  • Peter going on his first solo mission and Yondu being on edge the whole time, which means he’s extraordinarily irritable toward the crew, so they all come to dread Peter’s missions because Yondu’s so unpleasant while he’s gone.
  • Peter getting arrested on some planet and Yondu bailing him out the next morning. Peter’s mad at Yondu for not doing it the night he got in, but according to Yondu, every Ravager should spend at least a couple nights of their life in jail, and though he doesn’t say it, he’s pretty proud of Peter for having done something that could get him time.

Love, Hate Relationship. - Stiles Stilinski Smut

Disclaimer: Kind of want to make this into a series. ILY 

Stiles Stilinski was a world class asshole. He knew how to push just about every single one of your buttons and make you practically pull out your hair. The reason you and him didn’t get along was because you two were both super stubborn and always thinking your right even if you’re wrong. So today was no exception, as you sat at the lunch table with the pack, you and Stiles started bickering about nothing really. Scott was used to it but everybody else found it a little annoying but there was really no way of stop the two of you. Besides that, the pack was planning on how to find out what Theo was doing with his pack of chimeras. The plan was to follow them out to the Beacon Hills look out and investigate on what they were doing. But there was a catch. “Well the thing is, the Chimeras are very good at sensing other supernatural beings but, with humans it’s not as easy to track the smell.” Scott said as he looked at you and Stiles. “No way, I’m not going with Y/n, absolutely no way!” He said. “Yeah I can go by myself I don’t need Stiles to go with me, plus he’s really no help anyways.” You smiled at Scott; Stiles scoffed and rolled his eyes. Malia growled “Shut up the both of you, you guys are going, Scott even said so. So just get along for one freaking night that’s all we’re asking.” Everyone in the pack looked impressed but you and Stiles. You really had no way out of this so you both growled a unison ‘okay’. And the rest of the plan was made.

Hopping into the blue jeep with a sigh kicking your feet up on the dash. Your outfit was semi black and so was Stiles’. You needed to blend in, and it was approaching night so black was your best bet. Stiles talked with Scott for just a second longer then hopped into the jeep with a slight growl. “Off.” He said as he started his jeep. “Nah, I’m good.” You replied. He looked at you and for the first time in forever, you didn’t hate him as much as you usually do. His golden eyes glinted in the moon light and his hair was qiffed in the perfect manner. You found him really irresistible but you would never tell him that. As he looked at you he almost looked hungry. “Let’s get this show on the road.” You said while still looking deep into his eyes.  His eyes left you and you almost felt sad.

The drive to the lookout was awkward. The heat between your legs was starting to get worse and worse.  You squeezed your legs together to get some king of friction there. “How do we know they’re going to be there?” You questions picking at your nails. “We don’t, Scott seems to think they are going to be so we go and wait.” He replied. Pulling over onto the shoulder of the lookout making sure you were completely hidden, you and Stiles just sat and waited. With the most awkward silence, you just stared into the black trees waiting for any sign of Theo or one of the Chimeras for about 30 minutes. Getting tired of the silence you commented something that was in your mind the whole night. “What a great way to spend a Friday night.” You laughed and so did he. “What would you even be doing?” He scoffed. “Well as a matter of fact Stilinski I would be having a very hot date with Netflix.” He looked at you again, “Well I would be having an actual date with an actual girl. Not that you know anything about that.” “You know what, why do you have to put me down legit all the time?” “Because If I don’t do it, nobody else will.” When that came out of his mouth it hurt. The fact that he actually does it because nobody else will really pisses you off. “You know what Stilinski fuck off.” You grabbed the door handle and ripped the door open then slamming it shut while walking into the pitch black trees. Stiles got out of the jeep but not immediately, showing you that it wasn’t really a problem of his that you were mad.  “You know you’re going to get lost.” He says trailing behind you. The only thing lighting up the blackness was the moonlight and you tiny flashlight on your phone screen. “Rather get lost than sit another minute in that jeep with you.”  You yelled. Coming across a lake house with the lights lit up, you sat on the bench off onto the distance of it. It must have been a party thrown by some rich snob. It wasn’t as nice as Lydia’s lake house but it was still pretty nice. Stiles surprisingly came up behind you and sat next to you. “Good thing we didn’t get lost.” You just starred at the party going on. The events that happened next just pissed you off even more than you had already been. Stiles hand planted itself on your upper thigh and started moving its way up your skirt. You looked at him with a warning look but you didn’t stop him.

“What baby girl, don’t like to play a little dirty sometimes?” He whispered in your ear simultaneously riding his hand closer and closer to your core. Your breath hitched in your throat from the nickname. A boost of confidence surged through your blood, “Why what are you going to do… Daddy?” After that everything went haywire. Stiles roughly grabbed your neck and connected your lips obviously liking the nickname you gave him. Teeth clashing, tongues battling for dominance, his obviously won. Picking you up and setting you on top of the picnic table, he roughly unzipped your jacket and ripped open your button up. You yelped when he did this which just gave him even more confidence. “How do you want to play baby girl? Hmm? You want to go rough or go soft?” “I don’t know daddy. You’re in charge.” He took that as a yes and started UN buttoning his pants and sliding them down to his ankles then he did the same to yours.

Stiles wasn’t very patient at the moment so there wasn’t very much foreplay. “Sorry baby but I need you; I’ll take you home and take my time with you later.” You moaned in response and he rammed his hard dick right into you. The scream you gave could have made anyone worried if they cared enough but in Beacon Hills there was always someone screaming over something. Stiles was very experience and he hit just about ever spot perfectly every time. As his hand came down on to your back side that’s when you knew that this won’t be the only hook up of yours. The moan that came out of you and the growl that came out of his mouth was so sexy it almost made you cum. “Daddy, I’m close.” You choked out. “Me to baby girl, me too.” With that you both let go.

The getting dressed after wasn’t as awkward as you would think it actually was kind of nice. “Stiles.” He hummed an ‘Hmm’ in response. “Why do you hate me?” He looked back at you as he slid his shirt on and handed you his jacket because he ripped your shirt. “I only hated you because I couldn’t have you.” “Well you have me now.”

 Stiles Stilinski was an asshole but you saw a whole new side of him tonight that you haven’t seen before.

So, I thought I’d put together a post on Oswald’s and Edward’s relationship status before his P.I. run. Their friendship only really came into fruition in 2006 with Detective Comics #824, and was solidified by 2008 with the Gotham Underground series. You can read both of those here. At the time of those comics being published, I don’t actually recall many people being aware of them. Due to the popularity of Batman Begins and later Dark Knight, the only villains people seemed to know were Jonathan Crane and Joker, and the slash fandom would generally place any and all characters with those two (Riddler was among those shipped with Crane and Joker, and that was basically how Scriddler came to be. I remember when it was only Cillian Murphy Scarecrow with Riddler since barely anyone read the comics.)

Anyway, they didn’t have a positive relationship prior to Eddie’s P.I. arc, which is why you’ll see people referring to them as enemies. There’s even writers of the Batman comics who either aren’t aware they were ever friends or forget they were.

One comic arc that really sticks out in my mind is Detective Comics: Dead Reckoning, because Edward collaborates with Penguin, Joker, Scarecrow, Killer Moth, and Mad Hatter on a project and upon seeing one of his fellow rogues be assaulted, he goes to inform Penguin of the impending danger.

It’s pretty obvious there’s no love lost between them, but Eddie still went out of his way to let Oswald know he was in danger. And when Oswald was attacked, Edward expressed some discontent, even though his own well-being was his primary concern.

So, okay, they weren’t friends, but they weren’t exactly enemies in this particular comic either.

That isn’t the only time they worked together, either:

Then, of course, there are times they’re straight up antagonistic towards each other:

This one definitely warrants mentioning as it’s a comic in which Oswald essentially says ‘why didn’t you let Ed to be tortured and die’ to Joker, while Eddie is in the next room. Nice, Oswald. By villain standards this was a pretty reasonable thing to say since Eddie being attacked by Hush was a consequence of his own actions, but still.

However, I think when people call them enemies, they’re thinking of their dynamic in the animated series spinoff, Batman Adventures:

They also had a scene reminiscent of their pre-P.I. run dynamic in the middle of their friendship courtesy of a misinformed writer. I don’t think I added this comic to the masterlist since at this point, it was 2009 and their friendship was well-established, so their interaction in this comic came off as jarring.

And I loathe to acknowledge Tony Daniel’s comics since he turned Riddler and other characters into absolute jokes, to the point that people dedicated whole blogs to picking apart his awful character designs and writing, but this is supposedly the note their friendship ended on:

Still, it stands that Edward and Oswald’s most significant interaction took place during his P.I. run, and they were good friends at that time and had fantastic writers who weren’t panned by the entire comic reading community.

As of n52, which is an entirely different universe to the one I was just discussing, their relationship has returned to something amicable:

Which hopefully they’ll maintain, since I adored their friendship in the Detective Comics and Gotham Underground. It’d be great if their dynamic in the comics was influenced by the tv show, though I’m not sure how likely that will be.

And there you have it! They’ve been enemies, frenimies, amicable, and good friends. They’ve had a very complex, interesting relationship in the comics and I look forward to seeing it continued!

Since it’s midnight and I have a flight to catch at 5am, why not break down this little argument scene?

This scene is short but it’s important. We tend to quantify closeness by the times we see Viktor and Yuuri kissing, hugging, or otherwise acting explicitly intimate, but this little argument is just as important in conveying a shared emotional intimacy between the two. 

It’s pretty obvious from the start that Viktor doesn’t care about the damn nuts. He seems irritated already by the beginning of the scene, and I don’t think it’s because of the missing bag. Judging from Yuuri’s flustered state, he’s probably been dragging them all over, re-tracing their steps panicking trying to find the bag he lost. 

Viktor is patient so he’s gone along with it, but even he has his breaking point. Despite his irritation, he does what Viktor tends to do when he’s angry, and hides his feelings behind a fake smile. He’s aware of Yuuri’s anxiety which is probably why he’s placated him up till now, but he’s no saint and anyone would be tired and frustrated after being dragged around a city looking for a missing bag. Still, he doesn’t want to upset Yuuri further, so he appeals to logic: the shop is closed, aren’t you tired?

Yuuri isn’t having it, though. He sees right through Viktor’s fake smile and he knows what he’s doing. He hears Viktor’s words and feels that he is being blamed for a ruined evening. He doesn’t like it and he tells him so. 

This scene feels so realistic to me because it’s an argument I’ve had with my own girlfriend many times. The argument of semantics. There is no resolution here because neither Yuuri nor Viktor is really in the wrong. They’re just both in bad moods: Yuuri, because the bag got lost and he feels bad about it and thinks that Viktor is mad at him because of it, and Viktor, because the nuts don’t matter to him and he just wants Yuuri to stop fixating on it and let them enjoy their evening. 

What’s so striking is that neither of these characters is confrontational. Yuuri tends to fall into self-deprecation and, as previously mentioned, Viktor hides his feelings behind a smile. Yet, here they are, getting peeved at each other over something so minor. And not only getting mad but expressing that anger. For characters that tend not to do that, it speak of an extremely strong mutual trust. 

They know that an argument isn’t fatal to their relationship. They trust the other to not abandon them if they exhibit anything other than an agreeable attitude.

And then they walk in silence and the argument resolves itself. They don’t have to part ways, they don’t have to break everything down verbally, they just need to cool down and give each other the time and space to do so. 

I feel it’s rare to see such a realistic couple’s tiff. Normally, things are always 100% wonderful or extremely dramatic. But sometimes these little arguments pop up, sometimes someone gets hangry or anxious or tired and they take it out on their partner because that’s who is available and–unconsciously or not–that’s the person you know won’t abandon you just for showing a non-ideal side of yourself. 

I was never skeptical of Yuuri and Viktor’s relationship to begin with, but especially not now. We’ve seen them tackle so many different hardships together, we’ve seen Yuuri correct Viktor when he really was in the wrong, and now we’ve seen them resolve a minor clashing of personalities respectfully and maturely. This is a couple I can realistically see staying together. They’re not together for convenience, they’re not together just because they idolize each other or find the other hot–they truly seem to understand one another and work well together, and it makes their relationship a joy to watch. 

Wow so you really don’t know what trauma does to a person if you remark about how Sasuke “use to be.” And how he “no longer is.” When they talk about how sweet and silly he “was” I almost choke on my own Dr. Pepper and shout incoherently.

He’s the same little boy Itatchi and Shisui use to fawn over, the same little boy hungry for his dad’s approval and affection, the same one that Mikoto loved so much.

That character has been fused with a boy who also witnessed the massacre of his clan, deluded into thinking it was his brothers doing, his previous and revered brother. A child kept at arms length by a nervous and paranoid, unkind and destructive village. Yes, Konoha is actually truly an evil character in this. They let this boy with PTSD live alone in the remnants of his broken home. They allowed his brother to take on every difficult pursuit and sacrifice it all. In the name of peace, they created this little boy torn between the life and brother he knew and the pain and rage of what has come to pass.

We see sparks of this “old Sasuke” all the time, when he plays and bickers with Naruto - all the way up to him chuckling and calling him an idiot in their final battle.

Sasuke is always that same little boy. That same little boy but with the power now to choose what to do about what this life has dealt him. Sasuke is still the perpetual brat, still the silly boy who wants notice and time of his loved ones, this is like ..all explained by Tobirama too….

The Uchiha curse of baring too much love will drive them mad when it’s been lost. Sasuke lost everything. Literally everything. His entire clan. His beloved parents and then the elder brother, he so worshipped and admired.

Not okay and not cool to say Sasuke “is not Sasuke anymore.” Literally will chidori you because even when he is laughing like a maniac after killing Danzo and stabbing Karin, it’s all from that suffering brought on by being who he is in the FIRST place. If he had not been Sasuke, he wouldn’t be doing what he did.

“It’s because I held those bonds that I’m suffering so much.” Sasuke says this even pre Shippuden and vocalized it to Naruto. At the time Naruto could not really relate except that something precious to him was suddenly being yanked away and that precious person was Sasuke.

Sasuke had grown fond of Naruto, just like the Sasuke “he was” would have because of the Sasuke he is. And will always be.

That’s why in the end, he laughs with him. Because Naruto always saw the same eyes reflecting back at him. They had grown but the same sadness and loneliness rested behind them. The same laughter and love did too. Only under the gauze of a pain instilled by loss and abuse.

Yes people change and grow but don’t play me like “Sasuke just isn’t the little sweet boy he was.” Like yes. He. Is. He’s still full of kindness and silliness, he’s still competitive and bratty. Consistently he’s been all these things. He didn’t lose himself to no one, he didn’t become evil. He didn’t forsake himself. Stop. Omg.

He went through hell. And still came out the other side to meet Naruto where he was. He didn’t have to do anything. He could have easily stayed mad, consumed by revenge that was most certainly an understandable approach, considering all things.

“You never gave up on me no matter how hard I tried to push you away.”

Tried to push Naruto’s and team 7’s genuine care away because it was a weakness that reminded him of his family.

So yes, this entire time, Sasuke has been Sasuke.

Sasuke, interrupted.

Lol ^ make a fic called this pls.

P.s “the soul of a shinobi remains the same.” Boom. Drops mic.


I think what got me the most was how I never realized he only showed in flashbacks and not the present scenes. How they talked about two recent deaths and it didn’t register in my brain. Then when they finally revealed it was Jeff who died and then showed him in the car, I lost it. Jeff was so sweet and kind the whole time. He was never mean to anyone. Then to learn people thought he died because he drove drunk, just made me so mad. He died because Sherri wouldn’t just stay and call the cops. HE DIED BECAUSE OF WHAT SOMEONE ELSE DID AND IT’S NOT FAIR. I cried so hard. Jeff deserved so much better. Jeff was so pure.

You had this poor boy worried so hard for a good 30 minutes of him walking around trying to find you. He even talked to the staff in the mall and was about to ask the mall cops to go find you, however he caught a glimpse of you and quickly walked over to you while calling out your name. He would be pissed at first, because he really thought the worst had happened to you. However, after you explain that you saw a new ice cream shop and got you two some ice cream from there, his heart would melt at the thought that you were thinking of him and trying to do something nice for him. He would thank you, but tell you not to wander off like that because it’s not good for his heart. He would then make sure to keep you close to him and keep a close eye on you for the rest of the visit at the mall.

Jk, honestly, he would act smart and call you and if that didn’t work, he would just simply re-trace his steps to find you. Though throughout the whole time, he would be extremely worried about your well being, hoping that you are safe and not scared. Once he found you he would take you home where neither of you can get lost.


This would be hilarious, that is… for anyone watching the scene unfold. He would freak out and be over-the-top worried about you. He would search every floor and store for you. He would be a clumsy giant, tripping over things, bumping into people and display stands in stores. He would have his phone out, waiting for you to call him, but not thinking that, hey, maybe I should try calling her? ‘Cause he would be too much of a mess to think logically. He would be searching in the food court, when suddenly he sees you on the second floor.

He would have tried calling you, texting you, calling the boys and seeing if you tried calling any of them. He would be sitting on a bench, when just by coincidence you would be walking by. He would be soooooo happy to see you and would jump up and run to the other side of the mall to you so you guys don’t get separated again. He would pull you into a big loving hug asking you how your little adventure was and if you were okay.

This poor boy would be completely confused, and in a sense, in his own way lost. When he first notices you’re lost, guilt would overflow him. He would think how horrible of a boyfriend he is that he allowed you to get lost. He would also be worried about whether you were scared or mad at him for letting this happen. However, after half an hour of searching for you, he would begin to wonder if you’re really the one that is lost, or if he’s the one that’s lost.

Lay: “Wait, is she lost? Or am I?”

Chen would find this hilarious and would take his sweet time looking for you. He would be looking through clothes in stores, he would try samples of food that were given out. It would take a loooong time for you two to meet up because of his blasé attitude of the whole situation. Eventually would you find him, and he would be trying out a gourmet chocolate while chatting happily with the young man holding the tray. When you walk up to him he would simply turn to you with a smirk and say, “Oh, Jagi, did you have a good adventure, here try some Swedish chocolate. It’s really good.” He would offer you a tiny paper cup with a square of chocolate like nothing happened.

All he would care about is your safety. He would be pretty calm about the whole situation though, I mean, you’re in a mall, how much danger could there be? Also, eventually you would run into one another, so he’s not too worried. If you were out in town, then he would be more concerned, but instead he just keeps his phone out in case you try to call while he texts you asking where you are. When he finds you he wouldn’t make a big deal about it, knowing that you’re old enough to care for yourself and he doesn’t need to treat you like a kid. Also, this happens quite a bit, and every time you’re okay. He would simply take your hand while asking what store you would like to go to next.

Surprisingly, he would get a little upset about this. He wouldn’t be annoyed, he would just be worried about you and your well being. He would take it seriously in trying to find you. He would text and call you non-stop, hoping that you would answer and be okay. When he finally finds you, it would be like getting a stern talk from your mother. He would tell you how dangerous it can be to wander off on your own, especially when you get lost so easily like yourself. He would then take the liberty of holding your hand for the rest of your outing, not wanting to take the chance of you getting lost again.

You would be out with Luhan and Lay one day and would get separated pretty quickly. So the two boys would spend about an hour trying to find you, eventually giving up and deciding to sit on a bench and wait for you to find them. It would take another whole hour for you to find them, and when you did they would give you that look (cue gif). While Luhan asks, “You had fun on your nice little outing Jagi?” What that really means is, “Bitch where you been? We don’t have time to play your little hide-n-seek games today.” He would then proceed to hold your hand the rest of the outing.

He would be ready. Like, anyone who saw his face would know something was up. He wouldn’t be mad at you or frustrated, he would just be ready to kick some if he saw you in any kind of danger. He would had a cold exterior, but on the inside he would be dying with each passing minute that you weren’t there by his side. Once he got you, he would ask if anyone bothered you while you were on your own. 

Tao: “Anyone bother you? Touch you?”

Y/N: “No, no one bothered me.”

Tao: “What about that guy? He looks suspicious.”

Sehun would be scared for himself. He would be worried about how he would get home, if he was really the one who was lost, would you be mad at him for losing you, would you be making him dinner tonight or no because you would be pissed he lost you? All those things would be running through his head, and while he’s looking for you, he would kind of resemble a child who’s lost and looking for his mother. Once he found you though, he would be elated and so happy. One, because he’s no longer alone and can get home safely, and two because he actually missed you and really needs you, and this helped him realize that.

Gif: (Shy little Sehun when he realizes he needs you and actually relies on you for a lot.)

He would be another rational thinker, calling you and texting you. However, he would be really worried for your sake, he knew how often and easily you get lost, and thoughts of you being scared and worried would be running through his head. He would mistake girls for being you out of him desperately trying to get you back into that safety of his presence. Once he found you he would pull you into a big warm hug, kissing your forehead once and asking if you were alright. He would ask you not to do that again, for both his sanity and your safety. He would proceed to hold your hand for the rest of the outing.

"Dark Side" Headcanons.

-They’re thought forms (See previous story about Hyde Glitches), so the bigger the following in the fanbase, the stronger they are. And they’re (almost) all aware of each other.

-The Youtubers, or their Personas, anyway, are generally unaware of their dark sides. The exceptions are Mark and Jack (bc their counterparts have appeared intentionally in videos).

-For the longest time, Dark was the strongest of them. And then Mark turned him into a joke. He lost power quickly.

-No one was expecting Anti’s rise. Not even Jack, who had his concerns but didn’t panic until shortly before Halloween.

-When Anti rose, Dark was bitter and jealous. Anti’s a snarky, arrogant shit, so he fed this bitterness. Now Dark’s biggest wish is to kill Anti.

-Problem being, this would kill Jack as well, with how strong Anti is. Because Jack is Sean’s online existence, and Anti is now canonically part of this existence.

-Mad!Cry, Pewdiepie.EXE, MadPat, Natemare, etc. are all weak, and were henchmen to Dark because they were afraid of him and greedy for a cut of his popularity and power. When Anti rose, they offered their surfaces to him, but he’s not much of a leader, just a destructive force. Now they just cause minor havoc whenever they can.

And also…

-Corroded Crank just came into existence. And he’s not evil, he’s just broken. He’s also Dark’s prisoner. He’s only dangerous when his programming malfunctions, then he’s deadly strong.

If you want stories based on these ideas, my asks are always open and I’m happy to write suggestions!

Jughead & Reader: Unpredictable

Summary: One night you and Jughead get into a fight, resulting in the two of you avoiding each other for a few days. While you’re out with Betty investigating, you end up getting hurt and when Jughead finds out, he tries to patch things up.


Listen to: Pity and Fear - Death Cab For Cutie

“11:36″ read the clock, ticking away the seconds into the night, seemingly mocking you for never being able to manage your time. You tried your best to change your annoying habit of always being late, but it felt like you were doomed to fail. Most of the time it was okay to be late but you knew that this time the person waiting for you wouldn’t be so forgiving. 

Running out of the house into the cool breeze of spring, you saw him leaning against his car with his arms crossed. While you were leaning onto the handrail to put your shoes on all the way since you took them off while dancing, someone walked up next to you. “What are you doing?” Reggie asked. 

You looked at the tall, well-built guy and rolled your eyes. “Leaving,” you said shortly. 

“Come on. Why don’t you stay and dance some more? It was nice seeing you get all wild and crazy.” He smirked and touched your arm. 

You pulled your arm away from him. “Get a life, Reggie,” you retorted before running down the last few steps to your boyfriend. He was watching with narrowed eyes.

“I’m so sorry I’m late,” you told Jughead with an innocent laugh. “I just lost track of time.” You leaned in to kiss him and you noticed that he didn’t kiss you back - he just kept his lips in place. You pulled away awkwardly. “What’s wrong? Are you mad?”

He laughed incredulously. “I’ve been waiting here for almost 40 minutes. But let’s think, why would I be mad?” He said sarcastically.

Teddy Lupin HC

I have the HC that teenTeddy would go through a rebellius stage.
Not real disrespect, but more stubborness and recklessness.
The kind of brat you can’t be mad at for too long, like: he steals his grandmother’s broom and crash it agaisnt a tree, but comes home with the rare cake she loves so much.
I think when he goes too far, the only one who can make him be reasonable is Harry. ‘Cause he admires him and feels this connection, since they both lost their parents at Voldemort’s hand.
But even Harry sometimes has trouble with him and one time Teddy shouts “I’m not your son!”
And Harry, unmoved, replies “You’re good as if you’re one.”
And then Teddy tears up. And Harry too, because that time Molly said it, he was upset for her intruding between him and Sirius, so only now he understands how important it had been for him what she said.

Fixing Things

Dean hadn’t even noticed he was doing it at first. He just did it blindly and it never seemed to bother Castiel so he kept doing it. Fixing things. His lapel, his tie, his hair.

It’s the sort of simple, easy things he’s good at, the kind of things that show people he cares without him actually having to say it, the kind of things that take the bite out of his words when he says something stupid.
That’s what he’d thought anyway.
Now, he’s not so sure.

It was his fault, you see.
He told Cas to never change but he was the one who exploded time after time, taking it all out on the angel, picking him apart when he was angry, reaching for all the stupid things that he actually loved about Cas to use them as ammunition.

It started with the tie.
Dean always fixed Cas’ tie. It was their thing. Cas didn’t even frown anymore, he just kept talking about whatever new problem had come up in their lives. So, when Castiel hadn’t given any news for a whole week, even after Dean’s insistent calling, and then showed up like nothing was wrong, it began.
Dean scoffed when Castiel said he was there to help, his face blank but his insides burning with acidic bitterness and wrathful anger. Out of spite, and because hurting back when he was hurt was the only way he knew how to deal with these things, he’d snapped:
“What the fuck do you think you can help with if you can’t even tie your freaking tie?!”

After that, Dean never had to fix Cas’ tie again. Cas always showed up with it lined up and turned with the right side out. He pretended it didn’t matter, pretended he wasn’t being slowly eaten away by remorse, pretended on and on until he actually made himself believe it wasn’t that important anyway.

Then, came the trenchcoat.
Dean had been furious, absolutely furious. Cas had jumped in front of him during a hunt and got a knife to the chest. And sure, he hadn’t died and he was okay, but Dean was still shaking and mad beyond belief, so he’d spit it out:
“I don’t need some jerk that doesn’t even know his coat size jumping in front of me, thanks but no thanks.”

Cas had looked so broken and helplessly lost right then that Dean almost backed down, almost hugged him and apologized and pleaded that the angel didn’t do that sort of thing because he couldn’t take Cas getting hurt because of him again. But that was too much, too soon, and Dean was still trembling with the thought of losing Cas, so he turned his back and walked away.

The next time he saw him, Cas was wearing a trenchcoat that was far too small for his size, looking awkward and uncomfortable without the beautiful beige flowing behind him majestically. Dean swallowed hard and looked away.

He promised he wouldn’t say stupid things like that again because obviously Cas wasn’t getting that he didn’t really mean any of them, that he was just mad and horrible at dealing with all these emotions. So the hair thing came out of nowhere.
He had noticed that Castiel’s hair looked more tamed each day and it was confusingly strange that his chest actually ached slightly whenever Cas showed up looking impeccable. But Dean just accepted it as a fact - telling himself he just missed the old Cas, all ruffled and messy and completely oblivious to human appearances.

So, when Cas had walked into the kitchen one day with messy hair spiking every each way, Dean didn’t question why his heart burst and soared, beating irregularly, instead he just rushed close and put his hands on the dark, soft strands that he hadn’t touched in too long. He’d even smiled, huffing as he commented fondly, “your hair is a mess.”

But Cas pulled back like he’d been burned, frowning so hard that Dean crashed from his high almost instantly. His hands replaced Dean’s on his hair and he apologized softly, assuring Dean he’d fix it before turning away and disappearing.

That’s when Dean knew.
That’s when he knew for sure it had been his fault.

Now, here he was, days later, hovering in front of Cas’s door, hand raised, ready to knock. But he couldn’t find the courage to do it. What would he even say? Where would he start?
He dropped his hand for the third time, finally deciding to give up completely and try another day, even though he’d told himself the exact same thing yesterday and the day before that. He was about to turn away when the door abruptly opened. All of the sudden, he was faced with a rumpled, startled Cas looking at him like a deer in headlights.
“Dean? What are you doing here?”
And then, worried, hands rushing to fix his appearance, “I wasn’t expecting you, I’m not presentable. I’ll just-”

But Dean put his foot on the door, stopping Cas from closing it, and barged in confidently. That is, of course, until he was inside, staring awkwardly at Cas while the bewildered, hesitant angel stared back. And… well, maybe he was crazy but he wasn’t good with words so he just did what he always did, breaking the space between them, hands reaching to gently fix Castiel’s hair before running down his neck, gently correcting the askew lapels and tie before patting Cas’s chest and dropping his gaze.
“It’s okay. I like fixing it.”
Cas frowned, tilting his head like what Dean had just said didn’t make any sense.
“You do?”
Dean swallowed, biting his lip and looking back up, trying for a grin but failing.
“Yeah,” he muttered softly, hands still running down Castiel’s coat though it was already fixed, “I do.”

And he’d done what he’d come here to do, so he just brushed another stray strand of hair from Cas’ forehead and turned away.

After that, Cas was back to his rumpled, oblivious self and whenever Dean grumbled about how much of a mess he looked that day while fixing him, Cas tilted his head slightly and smiled like he knew some deep, ancient secret that no one else did.

And hell, maybe he did, because it was the angel that leaned over one day, his lips brushing over Dean’s in a soft, gentle kiss. At Dean’s startled, wide eyes, Cas had just smiled, eyes crinkling at the corners.

“Thank you, Dean.”

After that, it became a lot harder to fix Cas’ look. Whenever Dean tried, he always ended up doing worst. When he grumbled about it, all flushed cheeks and swollen lips, Cas just made fun of him and kissed him again.

I’m heartbroken, hurt, devastated, drained, angry, sad… It all feels like a bad dream I can’t wake up from. I keep crying every time I see or remember Cas’ eyes flashing white and his burnt wings scarred into the ground.

I don’t think the writers are dumb enough to repeat season 7, we all know how they killed Cas and had to bring him back because the ratings kept dropping, but until I don’t get an official confirmation of Misha being a regular in season 13, Cas’ death is going to hurt so fucking much.

I love Cas, I love Cas so fucking much. He and Dean are my favorite characters of all time, and seeing how Cas died in the latest episode has fucked me up in the worst way. I’ve seen him die tons of times, but in most of them, he always came back immediately, with some exceptions, but I think that the thing that truly fucked me, and all of us, up, was the fact that for the first time we saw Cas’ burnt wings, and that was something I was hoping I’ll never see again.

Cas is one of my favorite characters (yes, I’m using the present because I’m still in denial), and I know he has his flaws and that he has made his mistakes, but he is a character that has grown so much since the first time we met him. I love him so fucking much, because he is such a complex character, he is one of Heaven’s deathliest angels, a pure strategist, someone who can smite you with his pinky finger, but at the same time, he is someone full of kindness, loyalty and with a deep care for human beings. Someone who has rebelled against Heaven because that was the right thing to do. Someone who has fucked up several times trying to make the right choice and help those he loves, but has always tried to learn from his mistakes and has always fought for free will and for Dean and Sam.

And yeah, I’m aware that some of his decisions were poor or terrible, and there have been times when I had gotten mad at him, but he is not perfect, Cas has never been perfect, not even when he was an angel. He has always been the angel with too much heart, with a love for humanity, with a crack on his chassis, but that’s what makes Castiel awesome. He is far from perfect, from the good soldier ideal; instead he is a rebel, a lost being trying to find his place in this world, trying to make something good for humanity and especially those he loves.

Maybe the reason I’ve loved Cas is because I identify with him in so many aspects. I know what it’s like to be lost in a world where you don’t fully belong to, trying to do something good but failing over and over again, feeling that you are never good enough, leading you to a depression. But the most amazing thing about Cas is that he never gives up, not even when he is at his worst and the world and everyone around you gives you the feel that you are expandable and that they would be better without you. Cas keeps fighting, keeps standing up every time he falls, and yeah, he might fail but he learns from his mistakes and tries to make things better (something that certain writers forget like Buckleming and Berens), but nevertheless, Cas never gives up and tries to do his best. And that’s inspirational.

I just hope he comes back. That Chuck or Jack or anyone brings him back, because Cas is such an important character, not only to Supernatural or to Dean and Sam, but also to all of us.

Until we get an official confirmation of Misha’s return for season 13, I will keep crying for Cas.

Have you ever just stopped and thought about how powerful and strong-willed Nico di Angelo actually is?

-He went into Tartarus ALONE OF HIS OWN FREE WILL and came back. Even Percy- who Nico called the most powerful demigod he’s ever met- acknowledged it, and he would’ve literally gone insane if it wasn’t for Annabeth.

-He was so depressed that even the goddess of misery had nothing worse to give him. GODDESS of misery.

-He was almost killed shadow travelling. HADES warned him he could die and he still went on for Camp Halfblood, which never accepted him.( Atleast, that’s what he thought anyway)

-He survived a jar full of poisonous air with just a pomegranate seed per day in coma. And if that’s invalid, he lasted a lot more time than he was supposed to.

-Nico’s agony in Cupid’s palace: Grass around him dying, stones cracking and waves of darkness rolling off him so strong that when they hit Jason, he almost lost consciousness. JUST WAVES.

-He’s scared of Love more than he is of Tartarus. Him coming out of his shell and being able to tell everyone(or at least some people) about his feelings-something that wouldn’t have been accepted AT ALL during his time…

-When Nico got mad at him, Jason wanted to draw his sword just in case and he thought Nico might be MORE THAN HE COULD HANDLE even though he’d met plenty of scary demigods before.

-This may or may not seem to be a very solid argument, but strong willed because when he met Percy at Camp Jupiter, he STILL LOVED HIM, and Percy probably looked so lost and forlorn, wouldn’t you have blurted out even 1 tiny thing that could’ve made him feel a little less helpless?

-How many 12 year olds can achieve the title GHOST KING? Even if they WERE Hades’ kids.

-He radiates death, KRONOS’ ARMY fell back from him.

-He matured so much after ‘The Last Olympian’ no one needs me to explain this point further.


Imagine: Corrin losing sense of self while in dragon form and their s/o tries to calm them down.

Notes: this is actually a prompt I’ve sent to other blogs but you know, it stuck with me and I was like, WHY NOT TRY IT MYSELF BECAUSE I QUITE LIKE THIS IDEA HMM so there you go.

Ft. Ryoma, Silas, Saizo, Jakob, Takumi, Kaze

Ryoma: The prince’s grip tightened on his weapon as he struggled with the heavy emotions of despair and apprehension. You were placed in charge of the East front, so having learned it was under heavy fire and suffering heavy casualties gave him much worry and anxiety. Although his heart screamed for him to rush to your immediate aid, his duty demanded him to stay put and finish his part in this battle. That was until a heavy grip landed on his shoulder and he turned to meet the eyes of his retainers.

“Go milord, we’ll handle this.” Saizo gave a stiff nod as he deflected a dagger from reaching the prince.

Sucking in a pained breath, Ryoma relented, sheathing Raijinto in one smooth move. “You have my thanks, Saizo, Kagero.” Borrowing a horse from a soldier, he rode as fast as he could, praying under his breath that you’re safe.
