how can we not love ted

  • The Supergirl promo team: but can you trust a luthor 👀👀👀😉😉😉
  • Everyone in national City: she's just like her brother
  • Lena Luthor: *gives Ted talks, organizes charity events in which she also stops bad guys, worked out of a basement trying to cure cancer, saw teleportation tech and immediately went to how it could help people*
  • Everyone: we just can't tell if she can be trusted
TLJ ruins itself thematically

Regarding this amazing art post, in which Poe takes Rose’s place in saving Finn.

The whole point of Poe’s character arc is that he realizes that it’s more important to keep the Resistance alive than it is to destroy the First Order. He starts by desperately using every fantastical tactic possible (trying to take out the last cannon, sending Finn and Rose on a crazy mission*) to bring down as much of the First Order as he can, then ends by shepherding everyone out of Crait.

(*Rose and Finn’s mission was mostly to save their main ship, one of the few resources the Resistance had left to combat the First Order.)

So then why does Poe change Holdo’s speech/quote from focused on the Resistance and hope to “burn[ing] the First Order down”? Isn’t that the opposite of what he’s learned? Wasn’t that the whole point of his mutiny and its failure, that Poe would learn he doesn’t need to beat the First Order to truly win?

Why does Rose get that quote and the save? True, it gives her character a great moment… but we already know those things about her. We know that she’s compassionate, that she cares about the little people involved in the operation (the importance of her sister’s sacrifice, her reaction to the horse-aliens on Canto Bight).

Rose isn’t a dynamic character – she doesn’t change throughout the whole movie, sticking fast to her hope, idealism, and compassion. Poe, however, is. He matures over the course of the movie to grow into the Leia Position his character’s expected to fill. So why don’t we see more and better evidence of that?

As amazing as Rose is, it would have made more sense for Poe to have saved Finn, told him that, “That’s how we’re gonna win. Not fighting what we hate, saving what we love.”, and demonstrated such sentiment by kissing him.

Between Screens Reddie Youtuber!AU: Chapter 4

Before I begin this chapter, shout out to @noxatn for putting up with my keyboard slamming and weirdly specific questions. Also @unamused-fangirl for helping me out a bit with the ties.

Richie stares at his own reflection and groans. He still can’t decide which tie he should wear. He looks at the two ties held in his hands. The Pac Man tie was one of his favorites, but what if he came off as a mainstream hipster if he wears it? Richie glances down at his other tie. It was Richie’s Q!Bert tie, which was also a classic. Then again, what if Eddie thought he was lame.

Top “Ten” Books 2017

So yesterday I completed my goodreads goal of reading 50 books during the year and I thought it would be a good idea for me to make a top “ten” books. Who knows? perhaps you’re thinking about picking one of these up but you are not so sure. 

Oh and when I say “ten” what I mean is, some series or books by the same author will be put into the same slot… so they will clearly be more than “ten” books. You guys know I can never choose just one thing.

1. I’ll Give You The Sun - Jandy Nelson. #NoahAndJudeForever. Family is important but it’s more important that you find peace with the past.

2. The Sun Is Also A Star - Nicola Yoon. I invite you to believe there’s still good in the world, I invite you to believe in love, destiny and the universe. I am so grateful for this book, it reminded me of some parts of myself that I had lost during the past years, while also maintaining a good and critical commentary of today’s society.

3. Harry Potter - J.K.Rowling. This series proves, proves to everyone that “children books” does not mean that there is no depth or interesting political positions. J.K. Rowling, I am in awe of you! They are all exceptionally good and so entertaining (duh) but here is my current order:

  1. Harry Potter and the Halfblood Prince: GIVE.ME.ALL.THE.DRAMA.
  2. Harry Potter and the Deahtly Hallows: Payoffs, so. many. payoffs!
  3. Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone: This is not a happy book, my boy Harry has been abused over and over, but his heart of gold pushes through.
  4. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: Sirius my sweet!
  5. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: Cedric Diggory is a victim of “wrong place wrong time”.
  6. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: Sirius’s death is worse than in the movie! But also.. Luna Lovegood is the one true queen.
  7. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: THE WEASLEYS ARE EVERYTHING!

4. The Sarah J. Mass books: I loved them all and I will forever praise her writing and defend this books as more than “hot fae meets feisty heroine”.

  1. Tower of Dawn: I was not a huge Chaol fan, but his arc overall the series is one of the most realistic out there, making him a coherent character and a very believable person. This book is basically what happens when you say “Chaol deserved better”, well let me tell you he got “better”! Making a great effort to include more representation the most natural way possible (as it should be) this book is as good, as its predecesor expanding the world and deepening the story. #NestaqMyLoves #YreneTowersIsLife.
  2. A Court of Wings and Ruin: Feyre Darling, you are my number one girl. I loved this book and I thought it was really really good. It had it’s flaws (as do all books), and at certain points I wished for other outcomes. Nonetheless it works as an amazing bridge between old plotlines and new ones. I get the feeling that this book sets the ground for coming payoffs. Female at positions of power, NUANCED characters with bad moments as well as good ones, and a great political position (if you missed Rhy’s immigrant statement or Cassian’s rape analogy then I urge you to read it again). ACOWAR is more than people give it credit for and it’s a good political statement on many things… but it did screwed over Mor -although I feel this will payoff at the end and she will be very happy-.
  3. Empire of Storms: I am still recovering.. (if you have nothing else to do and want to see the process of how my heart shattered then you can read my reaction thread here)

5. Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte. Here comes Jane redefining what badass means since the 19th century. This books has everything you need! I mean, it’s classic for a reason. But the language! The use of the language is so well executed that it reads like a novel that has 20 years tops. Bronte is a genius. How she managed to do that, I will never know. She had her way with words.

6. All The Light We Cannot See - Anthony Doerr. Being a book about WWII, I knew it was going to hurt, but oh what a thrilling ride this was! The structure of the narrative, the characters, the story: everything was on point!. #WorstPlotTwistOfTheYear

7. Leigh Bardugo: Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom. THESE BOOKS! I URGE YOU I URGE YOU TO READ THEM! This duology brings some of the best characters literature in general – not just Y.A– has seen. I think this is a perfect example of good representation. The only thing missing was a Latino-Latina character, but I still feel this was a diverse cast and I could find myself in different traits of each character. I love this books more than words could express and I hope and wish that Leigh will continue to spend time in this world with them. I just want more of The Dregs. 

8. A Darker Shade of Magic - V. E. Schwab. Now this is a world I am excited to be a part of! You know when you read a book and you feel that you’re scratching just the surface, the tip of the iceberg? well this was that book for me. As its own I’m sure this novel stands on it’s own and you could read it and leave it at that, but I you just know there is more and more. This is the perfect example of a literary synecdoche, in which a part represents to the whole, but it still a part. Meaning that it can be on it’s own or it can be a part of the bigger narrative. I am eagerly waiting for the second installment to arrive (to my house).

9. Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions- BY MY LOVE Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. “Your feminist premise should be: I matter. I matter equally. Not “if only.” Not “as long as.” I matter equally. Full stop.”. If you have trouble understanding feminism please read this, along with her “we should all be feminist TED talk”. If you like to know more about this ideology and how it applies to society nowadays then read it. Chimamanda is one of the greatest voices to explain what it is all about and how we can contribute towards an egalitarian society, Besides is like 100 pages long… so there’s no excuse.

10. Strange The Dreamer - Laini Taylor. Basically it’s Atlantis more developed. I loved Lazlo and I loved Sarai. This is a story unlike any other, in which words come to live and you feel the characters within you. 

Honorary mentions:

11. Rupi Kaur: Milk and Honey and The Sun and Her Flowers. She articulated my thoughts and gave them life. More than considering it poetry, although some of her texts are beautiful poems, I think of them more of aphorisms or thoughts. It helps when you can see your pain voiced by other, it helps you realize things and then it helps you move forward.

12. Atonement - Ian McEwan. GOD BRIONY! I loved this book and I owe it a lot since my dissertation worked because of it. McEwan is great when exploring characters and in going against the common idea that children are nothing if not innocent. Every action has it’s consequence and we should always keep this in mind. #RobbieDeservedBetter #CeciliaTallisQueenOfMyHeart.

Dear Journal,

This morning I cooked breakfast with Sirius for Teddy. It was his first morning home after all. We cooked eggs and bacon and potatoes and Sirius got fresh fruits from the market. I was setting the table when Teddy woke up. He had his messy bed hair and his cheeks were flushed from his sleep.

“Goodmorning Baby. How did you sleep?” I asked.

“Oh I eh.. I slept well..” He said, not looking into my eyes.

“Teddy is everything okay?” Sirius asked, also noticing how weird he was acting.

“Actually, I wanted to talk to you guys about something… Can we sit?” Teddy asked, playing with his fingers.

“Yes sure. What’s up?” Sirius said.

“It’s hum.. I wanted to tell you guys before and I’m so sorry I haven’t because I feel bad that I’ve hid it from you and… I.. I’ve been thinking about it a lot and I think i’m bisexual…” He said, looking down.

His eyes were getting glossy and his bottom lip was shaking.

“Teddy my love that’s totally fine! Don’t cry honey..” I said standing up and hugging my son.

“We know how hard it is to say it Out loud Ted… But everything is fine now. We will love you no matter what!” Sirius said, joining the hug.

“T-Thank you…” Teddy said, wipping away his tears.

“You know you can tell us anything baby yeah?” I said.

He nodded and the tip of his dark brown hair switched to purple.

“I’m so proud of you my sweet boy.” I said, brushing my fingers in his hair.

“So… Does that mean you have someone in your heart?” Sirius smirked.

“Well, maybe…” Teddy smiled, blushing.

“Tell us! Do we know them?” Sirius asked, getting excited.

“Yes.. but don’t freak out..” Teddy said as we started eating our breakfast.

“Why would we freak out? His it a Malfoy?” Sirius asked, frowning.

“No… Actually, It’s James Sirius.. We kissed for the first time last night.” Teddy smiled and blushed, waiting for a reaction.

Sirius and I weren’t suprised but we were so happy!

“Yes! James owes me ten bucks!” Sirius yelled.

“You knew?” Teddy asked.

“Well you guys kept blushing and smiling around eachother and let’s say James spent his Hogwarts years around us secretly being in love … We kinda knew a bit.” Sirius laughed.

“So you’re not mad?” Teddy asked.

“Why would we be mad my love? James Sirius is such an amazing boy and I would love to have him in our little family!” I said, taking Teddy’s hand.

“Okay.. Thank you for being so supportive… I love you..” Teddy smiled.

“Oh we love you too my little baby..” I said.

“We love you more than anything!” Sirius added, smiling brightly.

“But I promised him that you would keep it to yourselves for a bit… He’s not entirely ready to tell his parents. I didn’t want to rush him but I wanted to told you guys so could you just, wait a bit?” Teddy asked, playing with his fingers.

“Of course love. We understand completely. We’ve been through the same stuff and you’re doing the right thing. The only way you can help him is by encouraging him and letting him some time to be ready.” Sirius said.

“Okay.. Thank you dads..”.

“Now let’s eat that delicious breakfast!” I laughed, attacking my plate.

We ate our breakfast and decided to have a family day, just like old times. Blanket fort, movies, popcorn and pyjamas.

June 7th 2014

Okay but: if Ted has a secret identity and Booster doesnt, so whenever someone asks how they met they have to lie. Booster always makes up some grand rescue where he was dashing and brave and Ted fell for him on the spot. And Ted cant say shit. He cant refute his lie. So as revenge whenever he gets the chance he makes up some bullshit mundane story, all with Booster doing something embarrassing. They have a competition for who can get to the ‘how we met’ story first, bc the other one gets stuck with that story for as long as they know the other people. There are dozens of different stories about them floating around.




Ah, the last “favourite outfits”. Sorry this one has taken me so long, I honestly was finding it difficult to figure out my favourite outfits. What were your 7B faves?

Emily: Topshop jacket/Topshop boots/Equipment blouse/Rebecca Minkoff bag

Emily was stuck in her swim coach uniform or just a boring jean & tee combo for pretty much all of 7B, so I went with her only outfit that I liked more than usual, from “Hold Your Piece”. It’s still typical Emily, but I like the edginess of the black with the burgundy (I love Emily in Burgundy) and a choker to top it all off. The boots were a nice change from her usual style and I love the zipper bag by Rebecca Minkoff she carried.  

Spencer: Elizabeth and James jacket/Kimchi Blue dress/Tory Burch shoes/Street Level bag

Choosing a favourite Spencer outfit this season was actually really difficult, because the pickings were slim. Most of her outfits were boring and we saw her be more casual this season. This outfit from “Power Play” isn’t one of my top Spencer outfits, but it’s honestly the best she had this season. I loved the adorable Kimchi Blue denim dress with the back detailing she wore.

Alison: Equipment top/Peggy Li necklace/Ted Baker bag

Alison was another person who bored me this season, but surprisingly less than she normally does. She had a few great fashion moments I can think of, but this outfit from “The Glove That Rocks The Cradle” was definitely my favourite. I love how youthful this is, with the pastel shades and that lovely pink moto jacket. Usually we see her in sandals, so the grey suede booties were appreciated. I would have loved to have seen more of these kinds of outfits from Alison.

Aria: Nasty Gal top/Topshop skirt/AllSaints jacket/Kate Spade shoes/The2Bandits earrings/The2Bandits bracelet/Rebecca Minkoff bag

Aria started off as someone who’s style was way too out there for me, then after the time jump, her style actually became my favourite. I could think of a few favourites from Aria this season, but in the end I chose this outfit from “Playtime”. I love powder blue, so any outfit with that colour pretty much alway gets a thumbs up from me. I really like the pairing of the twee skirt and bow-tied shirt with the edgier leather jacket and jewelry. To top it all off, her hair looks amazing with these kinds of looks.

Hanna: Topshop jacket/Topshop boots/Coach bag/Annais.Co necklace

Hanna’s bomber jacket obsession this season did start to bore me a little, but she has had some great outfits. I chose this outfit from “Driving Miss Crazy”. A powder blue suede biker jacket? You had me at “powder blue”. I love the funky fringed boots, her beachy hair and that she didn’t over accessorize because those boots and that jacket do enough talking. I also think the colour goes great with her features, it contrasts her blonde hair nicely and matches her eyes.

Mona: Topshop coat/Zara top

One word: Oui. I said before I saw it on-screen this outfit from “Till DeAth Do Us PArt” would probably end up being my favourite Mona outfit this season and I was right. Love the trench coat, and the cute monochrome lace blouse/mini skirt combo Aria also loves to wear. The beret while living in France is so Mona.

You know, I was looking in the Stydia Big Bang tag (very excited for the new fics! and art!), and the most recent posts were people going into this anti-Stydia pro-Sterek blog’s ask and basically making fun of Stydia fans for having a Big Bang, and the blog user replied that they were excited to see the art because they thought it would be so bad it would be funny.

Maybe it’s because I haven’t been in high school for years, but I really don’t understand why some people feel the need to shit on other people for loving something. Like really. I used to watch How I Met Your Mother and I hated Ted/Robin with a passion. But I never judged people for liking them, you know? I might argue with them, but it was all in good fun. Because that’s what this is supposed to be. Fun. And when the show ended and they got together, I just left the How I Met Your Mother fandom because it reframed how I saw the entire show and I didn’t like it anymore. I didn’t stick around and bitch about how much the show sucked and mock people who liked Ted/Robin. When I find a fellow Barney/Robin fan, I’ll commiserate about it with them…but then we move on? Because it’s a TV show?

Look, anti-Stydia fans. I get that some “Stydiots” can be a pain in the ass. There are some people on Twitter that I wouldn’t be caught dead associating with, they’re so hateful and vile. But honestly most of us don’t care about harassing other fans, we’re focused on how much we love our ship. And for the record, we do make great art. We don’t have quite the fanfiction community that Sterek does, because we’ve had plenty of Stydia moments on the show to satisfy us (though I suspect now that the show is ending/Stiles is pretty much leaving the show more people will turn to fanfiction and the community will grow), but it’s an awesome and talented community none the less. @rongasm is a legend who regularly drops 20k+ fics without warning like Beyonce. And our video editing community is by far the most active, prolific, and in my opinion talented community of the Teen wolf video editors. And the graphic art  and edits on Tumblr are amazing.

I guess my point is why are you wasting your time being snide about a really, really amazing event that is being put on by great, hardworking people, whose only purpose is to celebrate something that a lot of people love? It literally does not hurt you. It is so much more fulfilling to love things than it is to shit on other people for loving things.

hello everyone, your favorite sapphic studyblr is back! someone asked for a study video masterpost and as i have not made one and i took forever to reply, they deserve a long one. so here you go anon, this is for you!

  • studying for exams: crash course study skills #7 by crash course
    • who doesn’t love test taking? the studying, the panicking, the tears just before the exam begins! well, this video is one of a series done by crash course (our lord and savior) that help with common school tasks like paper writing, note taking, and others that help you become as successful as possible on those tasks. this one is definitely my favorite out of the bunch and has been the most helpful in my day to day school life. the video helps you to start studying and to study successfully, a true life saver if you just can’t get started.
  • stress management strategies: ways to unwind by watchwellcast
    • students = stress, that is the one equation we all know. but in this video, watchwellcast provides some helpful tips and tricks to battle stress and to make sure you are doing the best you can. as i learned from this ted talk, maybe it is actually best for stress to be your friend. accept stress as a natural part of life and a motivator and learn how to combat it and you will be unstoppable!

I got into podcast about a year ago. Since about 16 I listened to NPR regularly and they started advertising a new podcast, the “NPR Politics Podcasts” as a political science student in the midst of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election I decided to give podcasts a try and frankly it has gotten a little out of hand.
Here are my favorites.

Theses are all going to be mostly U.S.-centric, because that’s where I live.

  • NPR Politics Podcast - This is done by National Public Radio (which was recently named the most trusted US news source, good for them). It is a high quality, thought provoking podcasts with some amazing reporters from NPR. They post twice a week, and have good information background, and often present both sides of the story to remain as unbiased as possible.
  • FiveThirtyEight Politics - This is done by FiveThirtyEight, which is a left-leaning news sight that became famous because they predicted Hilary Clinton would win. They deal a lot with the technical aspects of polling and politics. The political science nerd in me loves it.
  • Up First - A daily podcasts that has a 10 minutes news breakdown. It is published at the ass-crack of dawn so you can listen to how the world is ending while you wash your face. It is done by NPR’s Morning Edition reporters.
  • The Daily - NYT’s version of Up First, but this one is 20 minutes and just as informative.
  • It’s Been A Minute with Sam Sanders - This is also NPR, but it was started by the same guy who started NPR’s Politics Podcast, Sam Sanders. He left the Politics Podcast early this spring and started this which is a more casual look at the news with various friends and an uplifting segment at the end where people call in the best things that happened in their week. Sam Sanders is incredible, I love him so much.
  • Global News Podcast - Done by The BBC  and is a look at news that happens around the world.
  • This American Life - NPR, explores the ins and out of what it means to be human, frankly.
  • Radiolab - Incredible in-depth stories told through interviews and sound bites.
  • Worldly - a Vox podcast about international affairs (from a U.S. perspective, sorry 6.3 billion other world inhabitants)
  • Reveal - In-depth, immersive reporting (v sad a lot of times.)
  • Embedded - Also in-depth immersive reporting (also v sad a lot of times).

Educational - Humanities, Social Sciences

  • Presidential - Done by the Washington Post’s Lillian Cunningham, this is a podcast episode about every single president.
  • Constitutional - A follow up to Presidential, this podcast explores the ins and outs of the United State’s Constitution.
  • Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History - A different perspective on history. Entertaining and informative.
  • Invisiblia - A look at the ‘invisible’ forces that drives us to act how we act. (also NPR - they just have a lot of good podcasts, okay?)
  • We The People - from the National Constitution Center, this podcasts asks really specific constitutional questions to people who have law degrees and doctorates.
  • Revisionist History - Done by Malcolm Gladwell, episodes are hit and miss, but worth a listen to.
  • Planet Money - NPR, this podcast deals with money, the economy and finance but in fun ways like explaining you can patent meat…technically.
  • Philosophize This! - Have you ever wondered what a white Roman man thought 3,000 years ago? If so this podcast is for you!
  • Ted Radio Hour - Done by TEDx. Very interesting stories on various topics.

Education - STEM

  • Reply All - Interesting tech podcasts, similar to Planet Money with funky stories.
  • Sci Fri - Podcast that covers different science related news and discoveries.
  • Science Vs - idk how to describe this, but I love it. Informative and interesting.
  • Hidden Brain - NPR, “helps curious people understand themselves” with the help of science!
  • Houston We Have a Podcast - The answer to, “What if NASA had a really cool podcasts about NASA?”


  • Live from the Poundstone Institute - NPR, Paula Poudstone’s attempt to “get less stupid, one topic at a time”.
  • The Dollop - Two comedians talk about history and how dumb it is. (My suggestion: Start with ep 259: Edward Clark versus Girls).
  • Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me - NPR, quizzes about the news with a bunch of comedians and puns about a man named Bill.
  • Ask Me Another - NPR, game show/comedy. Honestly just wholesome and pure entertainment.
  • Sawbones - A Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine - A doctor and her husband talk about how wrong history had medicine. Pliny the Elder is a frequent culprit.
  • Not Too Deep - YouTube comedian/star Grace Helbig asks other people really shallow questions and it is a lot of fun.
  • Anna Faris is Unqualified - Very similar to Grace’s podcast, very much worth a listen.

A/N: just the story is mine, not the characters etc. etc. also thanks to everyone who has read/reviewed/liked/etc. my other stories :)

Teddy sat scribbling across the emerald construction paper at the small table wedged in his godfather’s kitchen.  As the blue haired little bundle of mischief reached for his glue stick, Harry stirred the macaroni cooking on the stove, debating where the exact line was between ‘perfectly al dente’ and ‘this pasta is so hard its cutting my gums.’  How does Molly manage to do a full meal all at once for a house full of Weasleys

“Harry?” Teddy began, lingering slightly on the r’s he still couldn’t quite grasp properly.

Still with his back to the table Harry answered, “Yeah Ted?”

“Where’s Gin-Gin?”

Luckily not here to realize I got you calling her that too.

“She is probably still at practice,” he replied, looking toward the clock and thoughtfully leaning against the counter, “I guess she could be home by now.”

“Why don’ she come here?”

“Doesn’t,” he corrected absentmindedly, moving toward the refrigerator to grab a juice box for Teddy and a butterbeer for himself.

“Why doesn’t she come here?” Teddy sassed.

“Oi! Watch it little man.  She doesn’t come here because she doesn’t live here.”


“Because she lives near Holyhead, because she’s on the Harpies.  Try saying ‘harpies.’”

Teddy’s hair changed to the emerald color of the team jerseys as he quietly mumbled ‘harpies’ until he felt confident with the word, “Harpies!”

Harry chuckled to himself at the emphatic toddler, before sobering to consider why Ginny really didn’t call his flat home.
