honestly these assholes

1026. When Snape died, the first person there to greet him was Lily. She walked up to him and punched him in the face, demanding answers as to 'WHY THE HELL DID YOU VERBALLY ABUSE MY SON FOR SEVEN YEARS???'

A crown has arrived in Los Santos. Not just a crown of course, a whole array of finery, gold and jewels and an ornamental sceptre, even a smaller secondary crown, but the true prize in the collection is clearly the extravagant domed affair, huge, bejewelled and topped with a hefty gold cross. It’s for a show of sorts, a traveling display of some ancient European royalty, and it couldn’t be a more obvious trap if the Fake’s had received a personalized invitation.

Los Santos doesn’t have a big arts scene, doesn’t have fancy museums or cultural influences; to bring so much wealth to the city, the crime capital of the country, to roll it right under the noses of the self-proclaimed royalty of organized crime and publically advertise its arrival is so laughably on the nose it can only be the LSPD’s latest pathetic attempt at a sting. An embarrassing police endeavour to draw the FAHC out, ludicrously obvious and yet, despite all reason, it’s working.

It might be offensively over the top but there are, of course, two members of the FAHC who live for offensively over the top, who can’t even focus on the obvious jaws of the trap, knowing all too well that the bait is poisoned but unable to help being hooked anyway. Geoff and Gavin, the big boss and his most ostentatious little snake, both lost the second there were crowns on the table, both shiny eyed and hopeless, full of longing as their hurricane of plans tips into the utterly preposterous.

Gavin keeps making puppy-dog eyes at Geoff, begging and pleading and carefully explaining exactly why he deserves to be the one who wears the big crown; everyone already knows Geoff’s the king, he doesn’t need it, and anyway it just wouldn’t suit his look at all. Geoff is batting off every argument, some with considerable difficulty but he’s determined to hold out, heart set on keeping the absurd thing for himself. Half out of affection, half out of desperately placating bribery Geoff’s instead promising Gavin the slightly smaller, more classically spiked crown; the fine filigree diadem obviously the lighter of the two, easier to wear and arguably more pretty, still obscenely ornate and look how gold it is Gavvers come on.

Boss and conman aside the rest of the crew aren’t quite so blinded by the frankly insulting attempt at a trap. Except, well. Except that they kind of are, in their own ways.

Jack and Lindsay spent a whole morning tracking down sources, ensuring that while the display was fake the actual items were authentic. And boy, the LSPD didn’t go halfway in their bid for stupidest plan of all time – not only is everything certifiably real, it’s worth an actual fortune. They aren’t kidding themselves about fencing the crowns, it’s important to be aware of one’s weaknesses and sometimes that means acknowledging that you work with egotistical children, but there is still more than enough extra gubbins in the display to make such a wildly ill-advised heist worth considering.

Ryan, Michael and Jeremy aren’t particularly hung up on the money end; it’s always nice, sure, but honestly the FAHC hasn’t been strapped for cash in a long, long time. These days the jobs they do tend to have some other purpose, amusement or revenge or displays of power with monetary gain a secondary factor, definitely not sufficient to barrel headfirst into a guaranteed trap. But then the trap is so clear to see it’s pretty much a dare, a middle finger, the suggestion that the Fake’s are too stupid to see what’s right in front of them. If there’s one thing the more rough and tumble side of the crew have in common it’s their inability to stand down from a challenge, their dislike of any insinuation that there’s anything they cannot do, any prize outside their reach. Screw the gold, Michael, Jeremy and Ryan are, as always, just out to ruin the LSPD’s day.

So they brainstorm, they plan, they get into more than one argument about the authority bestowed by fancy headwear and, in the end, after enduring numerous scornful complaints from members the Support Crew regarding always doing things the hard way, they simply call up one of Geoff’s rats on the force and have her unlock the door and look the other way. It is perhaps the most anticlimactic ‘heist’ of the FAHC’s entire existence – not that you’d know it from the way Geoff and Gavin swan about in their crowns. Not that you’d know it unless you were there to witness, actually, considering the hilariously inaccurate rumour that spreads like wildfire, the tale of an epic showdown between the police and the Fakes, the crowns simply the spoils of war in a greater battle that took out half a city block.

To be fair, that battle definitely happened, it just had literally nothing to do with any heist. Disappointed by the appalling lack of action Ryan took Michael and Jeremy for a leisurely drive down to the police station, car full of everything from flares to SMG’s to a full-blown rocket launcher, and the three of them had a little party. By the time the rest of the crew shows up, somewhat overdressed but still drawn as always towards the sound of senseless mayhem, the street is a warzone, a building is on fire, and the LSPD have completely sworn off ever again trying to entrap the FAHC.

televison meme: [4/10] seasons → Grey’s Anatomy season two
↳ As doctors, we’re trained to be skeptical, because our patients lie to us all the time. The rule is, every patient is a liar until proven honest. Lying is bad. Or so we are told constantly from birth; honesty is the best policy, the truth shall set you free, I chopped down the cherry tree, whatever. The fact is, lying is a necessity. We lie to ourselves because the truth? The truth freaking hurts.

This is what I was afraid of. I’m being snowballed. I’m a victim of snowballing. What do you mean, Mr Ericsson? Well, a name gets mentioned, then it gets mentioned again and pretty soon everyone is mentioning it, and then the whole thing snowballs and there’s an avalanche of snowballs and I’m being buried by other people’s snow, and it’s not pure driven, it’s not just white snow, if you catch my drift. I certainly caught their drift. Do I make sense? Am I making sense?

It’s like I’m on the sacrificial altar and suddenly everyone is wearing hoods. You know, there are probably fairer trials happening in the back of parking lots where the defendant is wearing a mail bag on his head.

Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez & Viktor Nikiforov.

Apparently … they share the same voice actor … unbelievable. Well Grimm will be forever my favorite, that laugh, unf <3 Too bad the bleach anime wasn’t continued. Meanwhile this picture looks so damn bizarre and yeh, both wear the same outfit, except that Grimmjow wears his newer one. Either way, so far hasn’t caught Yuri!!! on ice really my interest, then again I just watched the first 5 minutes of it B’) 

anonymous asked:

Thanks to you I tried yuri!!! on ice and watched all of it in one night, like excuse me what have you done to me?! *gasps* Anyhow (feel free to ignore me I know you are not a yoi blog) one thing about the series I don't get is did viktor really not know that yuri was also competing when he offered him the picture? Like my dude there were only 6 skaters for the grand prix final, and that would be weird? Or did viktor know and was just being an asshole to yuri? Was anything said about this.. or?

Helloo! Oh dear, I’m a little bit sorry, haha! :p

But about your question ‘was Victor simply being an asshole?’, honestly, from the start I’ve been saying what you’re saying; only six people made it to that grand prix final. Most of them (if not all), Victor probably already knew from earlier competitions, etc. There’s no way he didn’t at least check it out when a new skater suddenly started competing on that level, not within a circle that small, because let’s be real we’re not talking about twenty other competitors here, just five.

Then throughout the show we’ve seen Victor interact with several younger skaters/less experienced skaters who want to be on his level: he’s never shown to be ‘an asshole to them’, on the contrary, he encourages them. We see it with Chris (see you at the worlds, Chris!), with Yurio (I bet you can win without the quads, I’d put money on it), and then it’s even one of the lessons he teaches Yuuri with Minami (how can you motivate yourself if you can’t even be bothered to motivate others). It goes completely against Victor’s character to belittle Yuuri (or anyone) simply because of a messed up performance. 

On top of that, in a more recent interview with some of the creators, it was said that Victor watching Yuuri skate his program Stay Close To Me was by no means the first time he saw Yuuri’s skating. He’d seen it before, and even recognized Yuuri as a Nikiforov fan because of Yuuri’s skating style, which showed that Yuuri’s skating was definitely inspired by Victor’s own. 

So going back to your question, when Victor spoke to Yuuri in person for that first time, I think that he had no problem understanding the look on Yuuri’s face. Yuuri was tired, looked utterly defeated, and probably downright miserable, the loss at the finals but also the loss of his dog still fresh on his mind. Now Victor being Victor, he’s smart enough to know that you don’t make it to the Grand Prix finals because of sheer luck. It takes true dedication and talent, so knowing what we know now, he must have known that something wasn’t quite right with Yuuri in order for Yuuri to mess up to such a degree when his performance mattered the most. 

Add to that everything we know about Victor; he sucks at comforting others, he says it himself, he doesn’t know what to do when people are sad or upset or crying in front of him. 

So what I think he did when offering that picture to Yuuri; he did the best he thought he could do at that moment, Victor Nikiforov style. Recognizing this young fellow skater who’d worked so hard to finally get to the finals for the first time and meet him as an equal, only to have all of his hopes crushed. And what did Victor have to work with? He knew that this young skater was one of his dedicated fans, seeing as even Yuuri’s skating was inspired by him. And thus he offers him that commemorative photo, probably thinking that since Yuuri is a fan, this might lift his spirits a little. Not to mention, a way of letting Yuuri know (as he’s shown to try to motivate everyone else); hey, no matter what, you ARE here. You’ve tried your best and you DID make it this far, we were in the same competition, chin up, don’t give up. 

When Yuuri rejects his offer, Victor by no means looks smug or satisfied about it, more like sad and dejected as well:

So long story short, I don’t think he was trying to be an asshole to Yuuri, nor do I think that he didn’t know who Yuuri was. I simply think that he tried to offer comfort in the only way he could think of, and with Victor being Victor (who sucks at that kind of thing), it blew up in his face. :p

I know it’s a very sensitive time, but I have to sincerely ask: Can we stop calling Donald Trump “cheeto” please. It’s such an insult to them; like Cheetos are delicious as fuck. Can we call him something gross that nobody likes. Like yams. Call him yam. Fuck yams.
