how has no one else seen this already

alright! *cracks knuckles* let’s talk about klance! i know all these points have been made in other posts but i’m just irritated and want to make my own post lmfao. i don’t understand people who say keith and lance don’t have any chemistry/potential/”romantic” moments…like…are you watching the same show that i’m watching? you don’t have to like the ship, dude, but there is no denying there’s something going on.

lance, your bi is showing.

do i even need to talk about the, “we are a good team” scene? this was ridiculously gay. holy fuck. tender hand holding. EVEN THE WAY KEITH SAYS LANCE’S NAME IS TENDER. they just sit there holding hands the whole time. they could have let go, either one of them could have let go, dude. keith wasn’t helping lance up. he kneeled down next to him and just…fucking held his hand? those soft smiles? lance doing the “fond eyebrow raise”? gay. and i know the purple lighting is from the galra crystal, but like…wow this whole set up was romantic as hell. seriously, sit back and imagine if one of them were a girl. boom, romantic. everyone would see it. so why is it so hard for some of y’all to see it here? not to mention the fact that we never actually saw the supposed “cradling” (i refuse to believe “I cradled you in my arms!” refers to this hand holding. there has to be more. a full on cradle). that was probably so fucking gay. AND THE EPISODE RIGHT AFTER, WHEN LANCE IS IN THE HEALING POD, KEITH BEING AN IMPATIENT LITTLE FUCK, FULL ON POUTING, TAPPING THE POD BECAUSE ALLURA WON’T LET LANCE OUT OF IT YET. EVEN THOUGH SHE SAID “JUST A FEW MORE TICKS.”

like, this boy can’t even fucking wait a few ticks because he just wants to see lance. there is no way to deny that he wants to see lance, talk to him, probably about their bonding moment. i bet he thinks everything is going to be different between him and lance now. 

he’s also the last one to walk away from the pod. *eye emoji* why did they choose to show that? what was the Point? then, when lance comes out of the healing pod, keith gets this precious little smile on his face. he’s happy to see him. looking forward to talking about feelings and shit, most likely.

but! lance instantly flirts with allura and keith just says, “Classic.” he then proceeds to look salty as fuck with his signature broody arm crossing included. this poor boy. you’re killing him lance, you really are.

not to mention the many other times he has appeared jealous when lance is flirting. (”Jealousy, thy name is Keith.”) i’m not posting screencaps of all those moments because i’m so lazy and like i said, all these points have been made in other posts and i got other shit i’m focusing on. 

here it is, the iconic, “We had a bonding moment! I cradled you in my arms!” scene. listen. i honestly can’t even think of a reason why keith would bring this up, unless he has a big fat crush on lance. it just did not fit into the conversation at all. let me type it out for y’all even though you probably don’t need me to. we’ve analyzed this to hell and back already but…

Lance: “Wow. Thanks, everybody. Sounds like the mice did more than you, though.”
Keith: “I punched Sendak!”
Lance: “Yeah, apparently after I emerged from a coma and shot his arm off.”
Keith, looking completely fucking devastated: “We had a bonding moment. I cradled you in my arms!” (his voice CRACKS)

honestly, he looks like he just witnessed his world fall apart around him. #mood

i don’t know about you, but this would not be my reaction unless, like i said, i had a big fat crush on the other person. he looks so betrayed, oh my god. and lance…wow. lance says, “Nooope. Don’t remember, didn’t happen.” now, is it just me or is this totally lance being a little shit about the fact that keith didn’t remember him in the first episode when they’re saving shiro? i bet it is.

alright, now this here, this is my favorite. this screenshot is titled “GAY this is so fucking GAY” in my files because um? their faces? those are very fond and tender expressions. this whole scene was so gay i stg. keith was flirting up a storm with this boy and it was amazing. let’s not forget that the planet lance was on with nyma highkey had the bi flag colors and there was two rainbows in this episode. symbolism, guys. these things mean a lot and are very important in animation. (there’s a lot more symbolism that many people have pointed out, including what i said above but my ass don’t have the time to put them all here)

the flirtation is strong in this one. here’s some more moments (i probably didn’t put them all idk i can’t remember) where keith is either a) flirty or b) looking at lance with that oh so soft expression. he doesn’t really look at any of the other characters like this (definitely not at allura lmfao), at least not that i’ve noticed. correct me if i’m wrong. 

wow keith you’re soooo cool…

a very underappreciated Soft Look.

this whole scene kills me every time, i love everything about it.

PROUD OF LANCE FOR COMING UP WITH A SICK ASS PLAN!

this still haunts me. it haunts all of us. why!!! did!!! he!!! say!!! it!!! like!!! that!!! you can hear the winky face in his voice. the way he says this is equivalent to 100 winky faces. if you don’t think this is blatant flirting, you’re a lost cause.

of course you were. of course. you want his attention. it’s okay, we know, lance.

LOOK AT THAT SMIRK KEITH IS SPORTING!!! anyways, that is the face of someone flirting. i make the same damn face keith makes when i flirt. if one of them were a girl, IT WOULDN’T EVEN BE A QUESTION. IT WOULD BE OBVIOUS FLIRTING AND PEOPLE WOULD SHIP THE HELL OUT OF IT. but no, they’re two boys. dudes bein’ dudes. just guys bein’ bros. wow, what a great bromance.

now, just for shits and giggles, let us compare how keith looks when he’s literally cradling allura in his arms vs. when he’s holding hands with lance.

he deadass looks like this -_- with allura. there’s actually a fucking…slight frown on his face now that i really look at it, oh my god. even when allura removes herself and blushes, he still looks like that. now, wouldn’t you think that, hm…if they wanted it to be known that keith wants to smooch allura, they’d at least put a slight blush on his face to match allura’s or maybe have him appear to be a little flustered? 

he’s gay. i can’t imagine him not being gay. (imo, him being galra is a big metaphor for him being gay. coming to terms with who he is and “coming out” to the other paladins. everything hunk says to him in “The Belly of the Weblum” are common things straight people say to gay people. a lot of people in the fandom seem to agree with this, but maybe we’re all just reaching idk) i just feel like…someone who likes girls would have a different reaction than keith’s when faced with a beautiful girl like princess allura in their arms. yeah, i know, this has already been said. but!!! it’s!!! true!!! all of their “romantic” scenes together were awkward, forced and came right out of nowhere and keith just…had no reaction. compare that to all the faces he’s made at lance. yeah. the difference is ridiculously obvious.

there’s honestly so much more i want to add to this, stuff from the comics and more subtle things (including a screencap of lance’s face in “Escape from Beta Traz” when he’s talking about keith and how he does cool shit. boy had the most fond expression known to man. u know the one), but everything has already been said by someone else. i’ll end it by saying this, again, because i’m really fucking salty: if one of these boys were a girl, there would be ZERO question about the purpose of these interactions. it would all be seen as flirting and romantic. it’s such a common trope. red and blue. fire and ice. they balance each other out. peace the heck out.

On Lapis and Showing Affection

Ok so I see a lot of people talking about how it always seems to be Peridot showing affection toward Lapis and that Lapis doesn’t seem to reciprocate.

Here’s why that’s false. 

Lapis is not a very open person. Peridot on the other hand, has learned to be much more open with Steven, the CGs, and Lapis, 

Lapis’s forms of affection and caring are either HUGE gestures

Originally posted by giffing-lazuli

Like sacrificing her freedom in a (slightly misguided) attempt to protect her only friend at the time (Steven)

Or sometimes  it’s small, almost imperceptible things, such as being comfortable enough around someone to express herself in a new way (which is something we can pretty safely say she’s NEVER done before…free expression is not a trait Homeworld prizes, and she’s been trapped in one way or another for a long time) 

Originally posted by ditto132

And appreciate the way they express themselves…

Originally posted by stevenfaces

And just generally let her guard down enough to trust them

Originally posted by musical-gopher

Or it’s spending quality time with people and getting to know their interests (Like giving Earth a chance for Steven and getting into Camp Pining Hearts for Peridot) 

Originally posted by osheangem

We KNOW Lapis doesn’t trust easily. The only reason she trusts Steven is because he let her out of the mirror and healed her. She’s still very guarded around the Crystal Gems. But she lets her guard down completely around Peridot,

Originally posted by ms-paint-peridot

Study her expressions and her hand gestures. She’s genuinely relaxed (or as relaxed as she ever gets) around Peridot. 

She’s also incredibly protective of Steven. When she thinks he’s trapped Peridot’s tablet she loses her mind with worry, 

Originally posted by giffing-lapis

And then…when she realizes Steven is not trapped and everything is ok, she APOLOGIZES to Peridot for almost breaking her things, somethings 1) no one else has done to Peridot, despite a lot of her things being put in jeopardy 2) something we really haven’t seen Lapis do before.

I think that we can safely assume that her protective streak might eventually be turned to Peridot, especially given how we’ve definitely already seen it the other way around, and we know that Lapis’s other close relationship (Steven) is someone she’s genuinely protective of. 

Yes, Lapis takes a while to warm up to Peridot originally, despite Peri’s multiple attempts to get her to. However…she protected her from the Ruby ship 

Originally posted by thecrystalgifs

And both asked her is she was ok and reacted to her like this >>>

Originally posted by geekylaugifs

AND Lapis agreed to play baseball to protect Peridot even though she though the plan sucked

Originally posted by giffing-su

While clearly not AS indicative of protective feelings toward Peridot as the entire Malachite incident is toward her feelings toward Steven, it’s still there.


Another example of Lapis’s affections is this scene: 

Originally posted by barn-family

Peridot is so clearly excited about doing a victory pose and Lapis’s response is to agree to it, in a tone that implies she thinks it’s adorable.

Originally posted by joremaster

 Of course, you could argue that all these things are  just Lapis humoring Peridot for Steven’s sake, but the “meep morp” incident happens before Steven arrives, they’re showing him finished products. Same goes for the sunrise scene. And camp pining hearts. And growing a garden together. And everything that happens in “The New Crystal Gems” 

Not everyone shows love and affection through physical touch. Lapis seems to be the kind that shows her affection through the time she spends with people she cares about. (Quality Time love language). This can be said for both Steven and Peridot. Lapis befriends Steven through being “Beach Summer Fun Buddies” while she’s in the mirror and continues to show a desire to spend time with him in Same Old World and Alone at Sea. She definitely shows a strong desire to spend time with Peridot, given that she helps her grow a garden, gets into her favorite show, creates art with her, spends a day pretending to be the Crystal Gems with her, does whatever it is they were doing in the toilet, watches the sun come up with her. All of these are Lapis showing Peridot affection, whether romantic or otherwise, through making a choice to spend time with her. 

Originally posted by doafhat

And then there’s the fact that Lapis is still recovering. People who have mental illness related to trauma often have a difficult time opening up to others, but it doesn’t mean they don’t care about them. Lapis is a trauma victim with depression. Her actions HAVE to be viewed through that lens. So if it seems like Lapis is less inclined to show obvious affection than Peridot, than maybe it has something to do with the fact that she’s been through so much and it’s affected her so much:

Please cut her some slack if she’s not throwing herself at people to be hugged. 

Please, feel free to clarify my points or add more if you see more that needs to be added! I tend to get a little ramble-y and my points don’t always flow.

Hogwarts!Gotbang Things: Slytherin Edition

🐍 Park Jinyoung and Min Yoongi , the Slytherin prefects that everyone (fears) respects. They’re much more lenient than one would think but the punishments they come up with when needed are truly evil.

🐍 Slytherin Park Jimin being far too good at charms for his own good (and bringing it up every time he needs a bit of an ego boost)

🐍 Pureblood Slytherin Bambam defying Pureblood Slytherin stereotypes

🐍 Bambam’s patronus is a green cat snake (changes to a king cobra when he enters 7th year)

🐍 Yoongi’s patronus is a peregrine falcon- Bambam regretfully loses money to his Gryffindor best friend Yugyeom after he bets that it would be a cat-

🐍 Jimin’s lynx patronus seems to be drawn to Jinyoung’s stag patronus whenever they’re practicing. Jimin thinks it’s cute. Jinyoung does not.

🐍 Jimin and Bambam sneaking out of their shared dorm room to go look for the Room of Requirement with no success. Yoongi tries not to laugh because he’s already found and practically moved into said room.

🐍 Jinyoung gets asked by Gryffindor prefect Jin to go with him to the Yule Ball during Jin’s 6th year and Jinyoung’s 4th. The entire school is in awe when they show up looking better than everyone else combined. Jackson is jealous. So is Jaebum. And Mark.

🐍 Yoongi is one of the best beaters Slytherin’s quidditch team has ever seen. He’s also pretty terrifyingly competitive.

🐍 Bambam is often found in the kitchens. He’s convinced some of the house elves to teach him how to cook.

🐍 Jimin sets himself in charge of welcoming 1st Years to the Slytherin dorms and tries to act cool to command respect. It doesn’t necessarily go according to plan, but he does have a group of younger students that wind up infatuated with him.

‘you’re the boss right now’ (au john murphy one-shot)

Prompt: Angel is a shy, well-rounded girl who works at the local supermarket and volunteers at the children’s hospital whenever she gets the chance. She’s also an avid porn-watcher, obviously away from the public’s eye. She walks into work one day and her boss tells her that she has to train a new worker that was hired just this week. She accepts the challenge and walks into the break room in search of the new worker, only to find her favorite porn star leaning against the wall and evidently waiting for her. (Derived from “You’re my new coworker who is extremely attractive and that I can’t talk to because I’ve watched porn of you before we even met, why is an online porn star working at a supermarket anyway?” by @be-au-ties xoxoxox)

Requested: No

Pairing: John Murphy x Angel (Reader)

Warnings: swearing, mentions of porn kinda (?)

A/N: super short, super quick, but idk I like it. Tell me what you think loves! Feedback is always appreciated xoxox

I walk into work, slightly annoyed to have to come in on my day off. I would normally turn down the offer, but my hours were already being cut due to low sales and I was barely making enough money for rent. My manager Mike offered to pay me time and a half if I trained our newest worker. C’mon I can’t turn down extra pay.

“Alright,” I walk into the breakroom, clipboard in hand. “It says here your name is John, you’re an artist of sorts, and that you can work whenever we need you. Hm. Now wonder they hire you,” I joke and look up, holding my hand out to introduce myself. “I’m–” and I halt. Holy fucking shit.

“You’re Angel, I know,” he smiles and grabs my hand. I zap out of my little brain fart and shake his hand.

“Yes, that would be me. Why don’t you grab a shirt your size and meet me right outside, yeah?” I look at him and he nods, trying as hard as he can to hide his smirk.

“Aye, aye captain. I’ll see you soon,” he winks and turns his back to me to grab a shirt and I immediately run out the door, discreetly of course.

“Holy shit holy shit holy shit,” I run into the bathroom, whispering small curses as I lock the door behind me. John Murphy was working in our supermarket. THE John Murphy: amateur porn star, the man in every woman’s sex dream lately. Holy actual fuck he will be working here. And I have to train him, meaning that he and I will work together all the time. I can’t lose my cool. I cannot lose my cool. “Okay, c’mon Angel. No one knows anything. You have got this. Keep a calm composure no matter how much–NO. He will be your coworker, please keep it in your pants. Phew. Deep breaths. Okay good. I’ve got this.”

I sigh and take a couple more deep breaths before walking out the bathroom and bumping into John. Holy mother of God, his eyes are more beautiful in person.

“Are you okay?” John looks at me worriedly and my heart melts… right into my panties.

“Yeah,” I clear my throat and smile, composing myself enough to start walking. “Let’s go the deli first and we’ll move on from there. Is that alright?”

“Yeah, that sounds fine by me. You’re the boss right now, Angel,” he smirks, watching me from behind and knowing that I’m probably beet red, even if he can’t see me.

Originally posted by jonnmurphy

“That, I am,” and he was right. I was definitely red.


I take him through the entire supermarket, and by the time we’re done, everyone else has already left.

“Okay, we’ve covered everything from breaks to clean-ups to meat-vegetable-egg handling to redirecting customers when you don’t know how to answer their questions. Now,” I turn around and smile at John, having grown a little more comfortable with him throughout the tour. “Do you have any questions, John?”

“Just one,” he walks a little closer to me and I nod, almost unable to speak at his close proximity. “How many of my videos have you seen exactly?”

Honestly Zeref put a lot of thought into what he is doing. You can tell he isn’t happy with his means, but to him the alternative is worst. While everyone else is telling him there is another or that he needs to just “live” those were options he has already tried and saw fail. To him who has lived longer than anyone else has seen how hopeless all other options are. So as sad as his actions make me, i cannot hate him for it. Because after all that suffering he went through he is still thinking about making a better world where no one has to be hurt because of him. He blames himself for everything even though its not his fault.

Butcher!Neil - PART IV

>>Read from Part I

When Neil Josten goes to prison, he makes a five year plan.

It’s not the same kind of five-year plan most sixteen year olds have, and he doesn’t expect to live for all of it, but if all goes well, neither will his father.

When he meets Andrew Minyard, he makes a tweak in his plan.

See, Andrew gets sent to solitary confinement when he murders another inmate. But there’s a man here who knows one of the prison officers who knows other prison officers and Neil was planning to bribe them with the location of one of Mary’s stashes of money anyway, to have someone who can keep him updated on his father, but it’s no effort to have Andrew Minyard come straight back out of solitary.

“Don’t do me favours,” he tells Neil, his orange sleeves pulled right down over his arms. He must have left his black armbands and its knives somewhere else.

Neil turns, and falls into step with him. “Just returning the one you did me.”

“I told you. He was a lousy cellmate.”

“I want something from you. Something else,” says Neil, and Andrew tilts his head. He’s listening. Prison is an endless churn of favours owed and favours due. “Get me a set of knives like yours.”

Andrew smiles mirthlessly. “And what will you give me for that?”

“Name your price,” says Neil. Andrew raises an eyebrow, as if to ask if Neil is really that stupid. “I might not agree to it. But it depends on what you want.”

“Nothing,” says Andrew. They reach his cell, but given the door’s made of bars, it makes little effect when he closes it in Neil’s face. “I want nothing.”

If Neil has learnt anything from his father, it’s that this is never true. Everyone wants something, even if it’s as simple as peace. “How long is your sentence?”

Andrew frowns at him, the first real hint of emotion Neil’s seen. “Ten.” A pause, then a faint warning note: “I don’t like being toyed with.”

That’s something that Neil’s already aware of, so he cuts straight through to his plan, pitching his voice low so no one else can hear. Even with early release for good behaviour, that ten years is going to be eight, at least “I’m going to be out in under three. I’ll take you with me.”

This time, Andrew laughs. It echoes through the cell, drawing several panicked looks from their neighbours.

“Glad to be of entertainment,” mutters Neil, but Andrew is still facing him, so he supposes he caught his attention.

“A jailbreak,” says Andrew in a tone that implies he doesn’t believe Neil at all. “How exciting.”

Neil leans against the wall. Andrew has to look up at him from where he sits on the thin mattress, but physical intimidation and height is not something that works on a man who has spent his life looking up at everyone. “Not quite. I’ll be trading information for my time.”

Andrew’s lip curls. “Mob business.”

“Not for much longer,” says Neil.

“You’re boring me,” says Andrew dismissively. “Go away.”

Neil does. He hadn’t expected Andrew to say yes, but when he goes to bed that night, he finds a pair of black armbands tucked into his pillowcase.  

There’s only one knife in each, but, well, Neil’s only got two hands.

wow this really got away from me. im not sorry. have this.


check please au where bitty ends up bro figure skater, and with his cash flow he opens up a bakery with his moomaw, and mom (she does the finances). its called heartfelt treats and they do a lot for the community. they hold weekly food drives where low income family’s can come by twice a month for bags of groceries and baked goods that didn’t sell during that week. they offer hot breakfasts and dinners for the homeless, as well as a cold lunch, and they host the overflow shelter during the winter (bitty gets the basement finished, with two separate areas for men and women, though other genders are welcomed). he also exclusively hires people without experience, teens looking for a first job, or people down on their luck who just need something temporary until they can get a better job. as long as they work hard, he can find a place for them. aside from the bakery, bitty is a big spokesperson for gay rights, and mental illness awareness, as well as domestic violence, and bullying. he lives modestly, because the majority of his money goes to his bakery, or charities. 

he meets shitty first, at a fundraiser for underprivileged kids and immediately falls in friend love with him. he’s a lawyer and does so much pro Bono work for people who need  help, and bitty has heard a lot about what he does to help the world. he ends up telling bitty about his old hockey team from college and how close they all still are. bitty tells him about his bakery and shitty promises to come check it out, even though georgia is so far from where  he lives. 

he meets the beautiful larissa duan at an art gallery showing that he decides to check out in atlanta one weekend. shes doing a series of paintings about domestic violence, and how it can happen to anyone of any age or gender, and she gives half the proceeds to charities. bitty would compliments her on her work and they start talking. when she mentions her lawyer boyfriend shitty, bitty is positively delighted and extends an invitation to her too.

he meets jack when he has an away game in atlanta (for the sake of the au, we’ll pretend they still have a hockey team) and he basically falls in love immediately. shitty had been the one to convince him to go. told him all about jack “the hockey robot” who volunteered his free time to teach little kids how to skate. it was adorable from the pictures he’d seen when he maybe googled jack zimmermann online. maybe. shitty called ahead of time so bitty got to meet him, and honestly, he was already planning their wedding. they exchange numbers. 

he meets everyone else from the team all at once, when jack informs him they’re throwing a surprise engagement party for him and lardo. he meets adam, or well, holster as everyone else calls him first. he finds out he’s an accountant, and his boyfriend is a pediatrics doctor. justin, or ransom is amazing. he talks about all the kids in his hospital wing like they’re his own children and it’s the sweetest thing. dex is an engineer and he’s here with his poet partner, derek. they really seem to balance it out and it’s kind of sweet. bitty’s never met a poet before and it’s really interesting. chowder is next, he’s married to his college sweet heart, and is also in a poly relationship with dex and derek, or nursey as he calls him. he also plays hockey professionally, though he plays for the sharks. he’s just the cutest thing ever and bitty basically adopts him. there are a few other players that jack points out to him, probably the most beautiful man next to jack is called whiskey, and another adorable boy is there called tango. they’re both grad students. 

they all become close, no one closer to bitty than jack surprisingly. he learns so much about him, and jack starts to visit him whenever he’s not playing. or busy. they fall in love pretty quickly. 

“One Day”

Summary: The day starts off as another usual boring and lonely day at university, until a new person happens to sit next to you in class.

NOTE: Long time no see!! I started writing this at the beginning of November and then all hell (aka school) broke lose and I’ve only been able to finish it now… Hope you enjoy! I’ve got a suPER Christmasy one coming up soon ;)

7:46 AM

     Pulling the strings of your hoodie tighter against your neck, you walked swiftly down the pathway, a mixture of red and yellow leaves forming mush beneath your feet. Class started at 8:00 AM, and you hated being late since you didn’t know anyone in your class and you dreaded having to walk through the door and have everyone stare at you. It had already been over a month since you’d started university, and you hadn’t managed to make any solid new friendships yet like everyone else. For the most part you kept to yourself, though it proved to be a lonely existence. 

     Squinting up at the still-dark November sky, you hunched your shoulders against the wind that somehow seemed to bite straight through your clothes.

Beauty & the Beast Tropes and Reylo Analysis (Part 1)

So I love Beauty and the Beast, and after watching the movie for the upteenth time, I noticed at a bunch of tropes that just screamed Reylo throughout. Smart, brave brunette meets angry brooding monster who’s desperate to keep her because she reminds him of humanity? Where have I seen this love story before?

Not all tropes apply to Kylo Ren or Rey but I was amused of how similar some of them are. There’s already posts on Tumblr about how she looks at him when he takes his mask off, parallels between TFA and Beauty and the Beast etc. I don’t know if anyone else has done a full trope analysis (but w/e) In any case, good work, Disney. You might have just set up one of the most epic romances I’ve seen in years.

All tropes are from tvtropes.org (that place rakes TFA with a fine tooth comb harder than most of the posts I’ve seen on Tumblr and it’s great). Here we go:

“You’re my guest”

This is a given. Kylo Ren is someone we love and love to hate. He’s been psychologically messed up by Snoke since he was a baby and has trouble venting his anger healthily. He killed his dad and overall, yeah he is an asshole in this movie.

He hates showing his adorable baby face in front of Snoke and Hux and he tries to be show his sweet side to Rey (but just comes off as a bit obsessive and he’s probably ruined his chances until their next encounter.)

(We all know how deep Adam Driver’s voice is. It is hot as hell. I’ve noticed that Ren speaks with a softer, higher pitch around Rey than around his dad, Snoke and Hux).

If you look carefully at how Ren walks, he’s hunched over and stomps around, unlike his idol Darth Vader, whose posture demands respect and has a clean marching pattern.

Kylo likes to destroy shit when he’s pissed. This is a given.

Rey speaks to Ren as if she isnt afraid of him and was willing to fight back in a dangerous lightsaber duel even after seeing the damage done to Finn. She’s super sweet otherwise.

THIS IS FCKIN IMPORTANT. I don’t even have to mention the number of dark/light metaphors the movie had, it was brimming with it.

If I find anymore I’ll post it. I’d like to know if you guys noticed any other tropes, it’d be cool to find out :3

Future Villains

So, Abra Kadabra mentioned three names–though, not really, right? Thawne, Zoom, and Devoe.

Now here’s the thing: they’re future villains. Eobard Thawne we know about, obviously, that’s not a surprise. And we haven’t heard the name DeVoe yet. But Zoom? Zoom, who Barry already defeated? Zoom, the one season enemy thus far who isn’t from the future? Sure, it’s possible to throw ~Flashpoint~ out as a reason for that, but we’ve already seen what Zoom becomes, over on Legends. Just tonight, in fact! So how does Barry face him in the future?

Answer: he doesn’t. You know who else is known as Zoom in the comics? Eobard Thawne–the one enemy we already know Barry will have to fight in the future.

But Thawne, right? That has to be Eobard–wait, hold up! There’s no guarantee people know the Reverse Flash’s name. Clearly even Abra Kadabra doesn’t know Zoom’s. You know who else this could be referring to? Malcolm Thawne–Cobalt Blue. Or Thaddeus Thawne, Inertia. There are plenty of other Thawnes Barry could go up against. 

DeVoe, now, that’s a new one. Meet Clifford DeVoe, the Thinker. With his Thinking Cap (I love comics), he can project mental force. Season 4? Further on? Who knows?

So, if I’m right: Eobard. A mysterious other Thawne. And yet another ridiculous comic-book villain. This is what Barry has to look forward to.

Tips on falling in and out of love
 

When he tells you he loves you,

Don’t believe him.

When he tells you you’re all he thinks about,

Laugh on his stupid face.

To him you are just a battle which he has to conquer,

To him you’re just a bottle of alcohol,

A slice of pizza,

A prize.

He would want to touch your skin first.

Don’t let him.

Wear something that hides your skin

But make sure it hides your soul too.


When he tells you he’s in love with you

And you feel like a car alarm is going off in your heart,

Learn to dance along with it.

At first it’ll be difficult and outright awkward

Because let’s face it,

Who dances to car alarms 3 am?

But soon you’ll figure out all the claps and clicks

All the lefts and rights and all the cha cha chas to this car alarm.

So dance

And make him dance with you.


When he tells you that you should not hold on to things so tightly,

Do nothing.

Don’t fight him, don’t question him,  don’t provoke him.

He doesn’t realise that the only reason your ship is sailing is because

You are the anchor that’s holding it down.

He sees you as a trophy of achievement and not for the

Skin

Bones

Soul

That you are.

Don’t worry.

He will see it if it’s meant to be.


When you feel like you’re drowning in your love for him

And he doesn’t turn into a lifeguard

Then stop.

Find your way,

Grow fins,

And be the mermaid you are meant to be.

You are nothing less than a supernova

Swimming in the oceans of what’s called love

So do cartwheels inside the water

And no matter what happens,

Never forget that your heart is still beating.


Listen to that thumping in your chest.

Don’t let the incompetence of a man make you feel small.

You are not small.

You are not what he calls you when he’s drunk and angry.

You are not what he screams at you.

You are not any of that.


When he tells you he doesn’t love you anymore,

Let him go.

Don’t hold onto him any longer because

The toxic words that come out of his mouth

Are enough to make you forget how to breathe.

When you’ll try to rearrange your dictionary for someone else,

The only thing that will be left of you will be your rotting insides.

So when he tells you it’s over,

Let him go.

Let it go.

It’s okay if he doesn’t see the constellations that run through your veins

Or the way your eyes shine brighter than the sun anymore.

If he doesn’t see it,

Someone else will.

For all you know, someone else has already seen it.

Love that has been taken away from one place

Will be put in another place

So put it in yourself.

Love yourself.

If you are going to fall in love then it might as well be with

Your fingers, your nose, your eyelashes,

Your entire existence.


When someone else comes along,

Stay prepared.

It might feel like a bomb shelter,

You won’t be able to ask him for more than what your rations will allow

But please don’t let the fumes from the bombing outside your little home suffocate you.

The war will be over soon.

Know that it’s okay to be scared of love.

I hope you never forget that falling in love over and over again is not wrong.

Love is not wrong.


When they leave, tell them to not close the door behind them.

Keep it open,

Let the fresh air in.

Rise from the rubbles again.

And when another person comes along

And you see their soul instead of their hair or arteries or skin,

Invite them in

Because you are too damn beautiful to not be loved again.

               The young redhead has been looking to the other woman for several moments now. She didn’t remember already had seen her around and that’s why she catches her attention. When the woman finally turned to her, the young girl saw an opportunity. ❛ Who are you? You’re mom’s friend?  ❜


Faina knew the Widow was a master of secret keeping, but this was one secret she had not anticipated. The child was such a small thing, and for a moment the hacker did not know how to respond. No. Not a friend. Something else.

Long time no see, but hey, have some legit read with actual flesh and blood trans characters, from authors who know their shit. Real issues, real feelings, real info, no transphobia (except for one that needs to be dealt with and dealt with, it is!). If only life was as easy as fanfiction…

  • Living (series) by awesome Schattengestalt transmale Sherlock gets outed in front of John by Mycroft who keeps on misgendering him. John is extra supportive and cute and sets things right… Rating goes up to mature for the last installment, it’s sweet and pure, exactly what you need. Friends to lovers❤️
  • Packing Heat by songlin featuring ftm John, Sherlock who really doesn’t care and steamy sex (trigger warning: includes vaginal sex). Also, I recommend checking out a sequel/companion piece: All Shook Up which has pressure sensitive strap-on vibrator. Not having a regular sized penis doesn’t mean John can’t own it like a boss. Both Explicit.
  • Summer Heat by Schattengestalt teenlock. Sherlock has a crush on John and he really wants to go on a trip to the zoo with him. It’s extra hot, so Mycroft (caring older brother!) advises Sherlock not to wear a binder, but well, Sherlock’s desperate for John NOT to find out he’s trans… (kids, please don’t bind when it’s scorching hot. And don’t exert youserlves in the heat!). I don’t think it’ll be a spoiler to say it all ends well and John is all supportive and cute, rated teen.
  • Not Your Average Lady by testosterone_tea Genderfluid Sherlock gets assoulted by some catcalling assholes while en femme, Lestrade to the rescue. Unluckily the assaulters have recorded the whole thing, recognized Sherlock and uploaded the video to John’s blog, so the secret’s out. But, like you probably suspect, John is sweet and understanding. Explicit. There’s also supportive Sally! (trigger: dysphoria, and some transphobic language)
  • Something Unusual, Something Strange by vklikesfic (fka v_angelique) now this is some good filth. Genderfluid asexual domme Sherlock in poly BDSM relationship with sub Lestrade and sub John. Kinky af, scorching hot. Check all tags for details, includes nice bondage yessss. Extra explicit, enjoy🔥.
  • Shifting (series) by Schattengestalt Established relationship. Sherlock comes out as genderfluid to John, there will have to be some adjustments in the bedroom. One explicit scene (that blindfold!) in the first part, you can skip if you don’t like smut. Some not nice words and angst in the second installment (Mycroft, you reptile!) Needless to say, John is supportive, he always is!
  • Just The Way You Are by guess who? Schattengestalt Sherlock has a revelation, John already knows he is trans (he has seen the medical records, not the best way to find out your best mate is trans) but Sherlock wants to come out as something else… Asexual Sherlock, Asexual relationship. You know the drill.
  • Everything I Am  yet another one by Schattengestalt Established relationship. One day Sherlock feels very dysphoric and doesn’t know how to explain it without hurting John. But, you know, John is a precious cinnamon roll so he makes sure Sherlock feels loved (too sweet kill me) (trigger: gender dysphoria, self-hatred)
  • Splendid Creature by mistyzeo Victorian trans!Sherlock, it’s so nice and accepting and there’s sweet sleepy sex (trigger: vaginal) and it’s all fine, and lovely. If you enjoyed it, Turnabout by the same author is a must-read as it’s sort of a companion piece? In Splendid Creature Dr. Watson mentions being “rogered into near insensibility”. I like to think it’s the happenings in Turnabout that he has on his filthy mind. There’s an ivory double dildo in it (ugh Victorian sex toysssss🔥) and while you’re at it you can buy printed bdsm Victorian johnlock filth HERE. Yes you can have published johnlock filth on your bookshelf and Elinor (mistyzeo) is a star I’m not even a tiniest bit sorry for blatant advertising  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

BONUS - CABIN PRESSURE FIC (most of you probably like Cabin Pressure as well, and it’s mature, realistic and brilliant, so why not…)

  • A Warm Gun by Indybaggins when Douglas’ realisation that Martin is trans puts a strain on their already difficult relationship. Will they sort it out? A very mature fic that doesn’t only show the emotional side, it also emphasises how hard it is for Martin to find a job and earn money (problem that is never mentioned in Sherlock fics). Also, Douglas is no ‘it’s-all-fine-John-Watson’, he has questions and doubts, some borderline transphobic reactions at the beginning but in the end it turns out fine and (spoiler) it goes Marlas.

BONUS 2 - special thank you to Schattengestalt, without them, this list would be only half its lenght! Anyone knows if Schattengestalt has a tumblr?

Triple Threat (Requested)

I can’t sleep so I decided to write a little bit… I changed this request just a bit because I couldn’t see three people merging into the giant wolf, especially with one of those three people being a girl. She’s still a member of the alpha pack though, I explained it in the imagine. :)

Also, if it wasn’t already known, none of the gifs I’ve ever used have been mine. I have no idea how to make them, nor do I really have the time to do anything else. So, if anyone has seen me use one of their gifs and wants credit or them taken down, just let me know!

Growing up as the younger sister of Ethan and Aiden had not been the easiest path in life. You loved your brothers, but they treated you like you were twelve-years-old not twelve minutes younger than Ethan. What they said was law, and you had to follow it.

The three of you had always been the runts of the pack in your original pack, you’d ben mistreated, beaten, and no one had ever stood up for you. Then, Deucalion had shown up and given your brothers the offer of a lifetime. He’d help them become stronger, and even become the alpha of your pack. All they had to do in return was kill every single member of the pack and join his alpha pack. There had never been anything like your brothers, two wolves who could join together and make an ever greater, stronger werewolf so they’d been able to bargain for your life as long as they could guarantee that you’d become an alpha in your own right and join Deucalion’s pack as well.

Leaving your old pack had been easy enough. You hated every single one of them, with the exception of your brothers, especially your alpha. Finding a new pack, and killing it’s alpha had been another story altogether. You never wanted to do it, and you hated every second of it and of killing off the other members of that pack. But, you couldn’t deny the sheer and pure feeling of happiness that you got now, never having to worry about the safety and wellbeing of both yourself and your brothers ever again.

Then, Deucalion got greedy and sinister. After you three joined the alpha pack, he set his sights on the Beacon Hills werewolves. The notion that Scott McCall could become a true alpha was too much for Deucalion. He’d either convince Derek Hale to join the pack, thus killing his entire pack including Scott, or he’d convince Scott to rise to the occasion and become the only alpha of the pack, thus killing Derek and the rest of the pack and making his potential to be a true alpha null and void. You knew that Deucalion was intimidated by the idea of a true alpha. How would that challenge his own standing as the alpha of alphas?

Deucalion had tasked you and your brothers with getting close to the people around Scott, looking for who would be the most important should Deucalion need to resort to that sort of thing. Ethan and Aiden were all too happy to get close to Lydia and Danny, but your job was even more challenging.

Deucalion knew that you could mask your scent and hide your werewolf status, something neither of your brothers had quite been patient enough to learn how to do yet. Deucalion had tasked you with getting close to Isaac Lahey, a beta within Scott’s pack, but to also not let the beta know that you were a werewolf, let alone an alpha. He wanted you to be his eyes and ears within the young pack.

You hated doing it, but then again, didn’t you and your brothers owe everything to Deucalion? Without him, you’d still be the puny runts of your old pack, that is, if they hadn’t beaten you to death yet.

So, you did it. Gaining Isaac’s trust had been harder than you originally thought it would be, and once you’d learned why, you had felt even worse. He had been through so much, and every time he looked at you with those sad blue eyes, you felt like you were just going to break him even more. You and Isaac had really started to care about one another, and you wanted to protect him, not hurt him. But, you knew what Deucalion’s plan entailed. Isaac had to die either way, and that thought made you feel sick to your stomach.

You’re standing at your locker at Beacon Hills High School when Isaac rushes down the hallway in a rage, not even noticing you there. “Isaac!” You quickly chase after the tall, statuesque boy and grab a hold of his arm to stop him when you catch up to him.

“What!” Isaac barks out before realizing that it’s you. “Oh Y/N, I’m sorry.” Isaac shakes his head while pushing up from the sleeves of his cardigan, feeling nervous. He hadn’t meant to yell at you.

“What’s wrong?” You ask Isaac, genuinely worried.

“Those damn twins!” Isaac locks his jaw shut tight while looking away from you.

You try not to let your face show the dread you were actually feeling at the moment. “Um, Ethan and Aiden, right? The two you told me about. What’d they do?” You try to play dumb, like you didn’t know exactly what your brothers had done to Isaac. You were also trying to act like you didn’t know much about werewolves, but that couldn’t be the furthest thing from the truth either.

“It doesn’t matter.” Isaac shakes his head while taking a few steps back. “I’m going to get them back.”

“Isaac!” You grab his arm to stop him. “If they’re as dangerous as you say, do you really think that’s a good idea? They could kill you!” Your real worry for Isaac shows through.

“I’ll be fine. I promise.” Isaac grins down at you while lifting his hand and running his thumb over your cheekbone. There was definitely something happening between the two of you, but neither of you had actually made a real move yet. Isaac was nervous and trying to be careful while you felt too guilty to take what you really wanted from the boy. You knew he wouldn’t understand when the truth came out. You know that he’s going to feel used and betrayed, and you don’t want to make it even worse by playing with his heart, too.

Isaac winks at you before taking a few slow backward steps before turning and walking out of the school.

After discreetly warning your brothers that something was going to happen, you spent the rest of the school day using your werewolf hearing to listen for any clue as to what Isaac was up to. But, when you saw what he’d actually done, you realized that you never would have seen it coming.

While standing in the middle of the hallway, watching Aiden seethe at Isaac, Scott, and Allison’s direction, you’d actually felt a tiny bit proud of the trio. Your brothers were definitely hotheads and would retaliate, but Isaac, Scott, and Allison had gotten them good. You were just hoping the consequences they faced wouldn’t be too bad. You didn’t want to see anyone hurt, but you also knew that Deucalion wouldn’t think too fondly of your brothers going rogue and getting revenge for a prank.

Later that afternoon, you’re wandering the school hallways when you heard fighting a few hallways over. You didn’t need to see what was going on, you knew. You drop your bag and run towards the commotion. When you get there, your brothers have already merged into their mega-wolf and are throwing Isaac and Scott down the hallway. “Stop!” You shout. Your brothers don’t bother to listen. Instead, they run towards Scott and Isaac. Scott and Isaac jump up, ready to advance on your brothers.

You don’t even think about what you do next. It just happens before you can process the consequences. You feel the familiar twitching sensation running up your spine before your neck twists and flinches. You’re letting out a loud, monstrous roar, which reverberates against the lockers, before you even realize it.

When Isaac and Scott, now in human form, look over at you, your eyes are glowing a blood red before fading back to their normal color as your facial features become normal again, too. “Y/N?” Isaac takes a small step toward you before stopping himself.

Aiden, who had unmerged from Ethan, slowly claps his hands dramatically. “Deucalion is not going to be happy about this…” He looks over at Ethan.

“You’re one of them?” Isaac turns his eyes back to you, and you can see the confusion, betrayal, and anger within his blue orbs. “You acted like you knew nothing about werewolves, but you’re an alpha!” He shouts at you.

“Isaac…” You let out a deep breath and take a step forward but Isaac throws his hands up to stop you. “I swear that I can explain!”

“You’re one of them!” Isaac points angrily at your brothers. “I thought you were my friend, but you never were. You’ve always been with them.”

You shake your head, looking down at the floor, before looking back up at Isaac. “They’re my brothers, Isaac. What else could I have done?”

“Brothers?” Scott speaks up for the first time from behind Isaac.

“We’re not twins.” Ethan starts smirking while walking over to you and wrapping his arms around your shoulder smugly.

Aiden walks over and does the same thing. “We’re triplets.” He leans down and kisses your cheek to prove his point.

Isaac lifts his hand and looks like he’s about to say something, but at the last minute, he changes his mind. Instead, Isaac turns on his heel and starts walking away.

“Isaac!” You tear yourself away from the grasp of your brothers and chase after Isaac for the second time that day. “Please, just wait!” You grab his arm and turn him around.

By the time Isaac is facing you, he’s wolfed out. He roars right in your face. “Leave me alone!” He shouts at you, his voice loud and booming. You let Isaac tear his arm out of your hand, and you watch as he walks away. A tear falls from your eyes as you watch him slam the door leading outside open, and you almost jump out of shock when it slams against the wall.

All you can think about is what you’ve done and how much you’d hurt Isaac… You were a horrible person, but right then and there you swore that you’d make it up to Isaac and get him to forgive you. You needed him in your life.

psycho-pass aujeon jungkook; junior inspector 

To the Bureau, Jeon Jungkook is as fresh as fresh meat can get–fresh out of the academy, and at the tender age of nineteen, so far as most senior inspectors are concerned, fresh to the world. But with the highest marks out of anyone in the past two decades, it’s impossible not to pay him some mind; no one’s ever seen a Hue as clear as his starting out. People are already placing bets on how long he’ll last, how fast it’ll all go dark, but for the moment, no one can deny his immaculate numbers and pristine work ethic. Sure, he’s got a bit of a head on him, completely convinced of his own competency and the inadequacy thereof of everyone else–he fancies himself above Enforcers and has never really considered them to worthy of his trust. To him, they are tools to be dispatched, human weapons with which he can use to pull the trigger from a comfortable distance. However, all that changes when he gets put on a team with the notorious Dynamic Duo of Kim Taehyung and Park Jimin, a whirlwind if ever Jungkook had to deal with one and he’s soon to find out that fact is almost always more unbelievable than fiction, that trust, partnership, and friendship comes as a package deal, and that sometimes the decision not to pull the trigger can make a lifetimes worth of difference.
