i actually ship them quite a lot i love their friendship so much

This is what “balancing the Force” looks like:

I wrote a 25-page paper on Star Wars arguing that “bringing balance to the Force” didn’t mean “the Jedi will be 100% in control” (and of course not the opposite) but bringing the two aspects of the Force into alignment, using Anakin as a case study. Brief recap of my paper:

  • EPISODE I
    • The Jedi literally don’t know that slavery still exists in the galaxy and are shocked when Shmi says “The Republic doesn’t exist out here… We must survive on our own.” So like… the fuck.
    • Anakin asks Qui-Gon “Have you come to free us?” and Qui-Gon says “No, I’m afraid not,” to which Anakin replies, “Why else would you be here?” Here we can see the innocence and goodness in Anakin juxtaposed against the moral ambiguity of the Jedi. They’re there for repairs on their ship - nothing more, nothing less. Witnessing slavery does nothing to change those priorities.
    • The Jedi take a child away from his mother, and when Anakin is (rightfully) scared for his mom, who has been left in slavery, the Jedi are still like well, you know, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, enforcing the laws against slavery seems kinda like a lot of work so we’re just not gonna get involved. That’s like… not quite what you would expect from the “Light” Side.
    • Anakin is literally a child whose mother has been left in slavery and, understandably, he’s kind of freaked out. Instead of acknowledging Anakin’s pain as legitimate and working with him, the Jedi take an oppositional stance, telling Anakin that “Fear is the path to the dark side” - a phrase that was much more apt in the Original Trilogy than it is here, where Anakin is only nine, and his fears are 100% rational.
  • EPISODE II
    • Obi-Wan asks Anakin if he’s sleeping poorly because of his mom, Anakin basically admits yes, and Obi-Wan says “Dreams pass in time.” Uh, Obi-Wan, I’m sure you have good intentions and all, but the problem isn’t in the dream world. Anakin’s dreams are a reflection of the actual, legitimate, very real danger his mother is in, and Obi-Wan’s response only dismisses Anakin’s fear and drives him further away from the Jedi Council. And, again, the Jedi could have fixed this entire situation by either rescuing his mother or actually trying to stop slavery instead of just paying lip service to the idea.
    • Anakin and Padmé fall in love, and Padmé is like “yo is this, like, allowed to happen for you??” and Anakin says “Attachment is forbidden. Possession is forbidden. Compassion, which I would define as unconditional love, is central to a Jedi’s life, so you might say we’re encouraged to love.” So… Taking a woman’s child so he can fulfill their prophecy and leaving that woman alone and enslaved on a desert planet is compassionate behavior now? Right. Sounds fake, but okay. Also, Anakin is literally pointing out the hypocrisy in that statement - so you can love humanity and people, but you can’t love a person? That’s super weird.
      • Falling in love is like… not really something you can help? Especially not the first time. Just, you know, speaking as the classic lesbian who has fallen for a straight best friend… just saying “don’t do that” is not really going to help. At all.
    • At this point, the Jedi have created a situation where if Anakin falls in love (as he is wont to do as a literal teenager who was not brought up in the Jedi Order of his own volition), he has to keep that love secret or a) risk expulsion from the Jedi and b) prove them “right” that he can’t be trusted. Which, you know, nobody wants to do.
    • Padmé tells him that he “had a nightmare again last night,” and Anakin says, “Jedi don’t have nightmares.” Yo, what the fuck. This kid is a teenager, his mom is on a desert planet and enslaved, and now he feels like he’s not even allowed to have nightmares? Which are not conscious? I get that the Jedi are supposed to have total control over themselves, but first of all, that’s a completely unrealistic expectation to have of anyone, much less a teenager, and second of all, that’s a real fucked up thing to imply on a mental health level. “You’re guilty, even for the pain that your brain is inflicting on you from childhood trauma in situations (i.e., unconsciousness) that you can’t even control!” Yeah, no. There is no way that could possibly go well. 
      • If Anakin is made to feel guilty for being scared or having nightmares or missing his mom from whom he was taken when he was not even ten years old, and Jedi are pointing to those feelings as evidence that he is dangerous and untrustworthy, he is put in a situation where he cannot admit that he needs help and therefore cannot access help. Like, just get the kid a shrink! And maybe rescue his mom! There are ways to address this and help Anakin stop having feelings, if that’s something we really have to do, without shaming him, which is gross and also distinctly unhelpful.
    • Anakin goes back to Tatooine to find his mom, she’s been kidnapped and tortured by Tusken Raiders, she dies in his arms, and he slaughters the Tuskens and vows to become so powerful he will be able to stop people from dying. Which, like, is not ideal - not condoning murder - but he’s also seen his mother for the first time in years, like at least half a decade, and he is a) completely overrun with survivor’s guilt and b) rightfully grieving and c) also rightfully pissed the fuck off that he finally sees him mom again only to have her die in his arms. Like, I’d be pissed, too. And you know what helps with grief? Talking it out!! Therapy!! Friendship!! You know what Anakin doesn’t have? Literally any of those things. He can’t admit that he’s grieving his mom because it would threaten his place in the Jedi Order. The Order’s strictness continues to place him in a catch-22 where admitting he needs help is already condemning him.
  • EPISODE III
    • Anakin beats Count Dooku in part because he is furious that Palpatine has been “captured” and taps into the Dark Side with that emotion. THEN, Padmé’s like “surprise, I’m pregnant,” and Anakin (again, understandably) flips the fuck out. He has nightmares about her dying in childbirth, and guess who he can’t go to for advice or help or even consolation? The Jedi!! Wow, this is going so well for everyone, what great policies we have here.
    • The Jedi Council want Anakin to spy on Palpatine, and Anakin (correctly) points out to Obi-Wan that this goes against the Jedi Code, against the Republic, and asks why Obi-Wan is asking this of him… to which Obi-Wan replies, “The Council is asking you.” So, you know, this doesn’t exactly endear Anakin to the Council, who have already been pretty shitty to him and are now seemingly hypocritical as well.
    • Palpatine says to Anakin, “Be careful of the Jedi, Anakin. They fear you. In time they will destroy you.” and yeah, he’s playing on Anakin’s confusion and suspicions and totally using him as a pawn here, but he’s also right. The Jedi have proven themselves to not have Anakin’s best interests at heart, even if they have good intentions. And they do fear Anakin, so, you know, that whole “non-attachment prevents fear” thing isn’t really working out for them either.
    • Palpatine tells Anakin that the Dark Side can allow you to control death, and Anakin (who, let’s remind ourselves, has watched his mother die in his arms) begs to know how so he can save Padmé should his nightmares come true and she die in childbirth. And, again, since he can’t go to the Jedi for any help with this, he feels he has no choice but to trust Palpatine.
    • Here we get to a real fun sequence of events. Palpatine tells Anakin he’s a Sith. Anakin threatens to kill Palpatine, but doesn’t, so he can maintain the possibility of learning how to save Padmé. He goes to tell the Jedi, who rush into action and don’t allow him to join them because they think his fear will cloud his judgment, ignoring the fact that a) they’re scared out of their asses too, and b) he literally just betrayed someone close to him??? for people who have really been nothing but shitty??? So I feel like Anakin’s doing surprisingly well rn and the Jedi are basically like, “Yeah, great, but also fuck you and stay here.”
    • Soooooooo, Anakin goes to save Palpatine (again, to then save his wife), and in order to save him he kills a Jedi. At this point, Anakin’s like “I’m completely fucked,” which is true (although he’s been fucked from the beginning because the Jedi suck), and he pledges himself to Palpatine because he doesn’t think he has any other option.
    • Okay, then he goes and murders a bunch of kids, so like. That’s not great. Not gonna condone that. This was A Mistake™. I think we can all agree on that. Moving on.
    • Obi-Wan and Yoda see footage of Anakin’s fun murder time and Obi-Wan goes to try to find and defeat Anakin. In order to find him, he tells Padmé what happened and then hides away on her ship.
    • Padmé talks to Anakin, flips out when she realizes Obi-Wan was telling the truth, and as she tries to talk Anakin down from his panic- and grief-fueled descent into insanity he says, “I won’t lose you the way I lost my mother! I’ve become more powerful than any Jedi has ever dreamed of and I’ve done it for you. To protect you.”
      • Side note, at this point I get annoyed because, like, Anakin, she literally Did Not Ask. Buddy, pal, friend, she specifically told you not to do this. I know your heart is in the right place, but like, this really could have all been prevented if you’d just listened to your wife. Why are the women in Star Wars consistently the only people who know what the fuck is going on?
    • Obi-Wan reveals himself, Anakin thinks Padmé betrayed him, and Force-chokes her. So, like, again, the anger is understandable, the Force-choking is not. Not going to defend that.
    • As Obi-Wan and Anakin fight, Anakin says something extremely telling: “From my point of view, the Jedi are evil.” He isn’t lying. He isn’t even exaggerating. The Jedi have fucked him over at every turn. And the point that is being made here is that Anakin descends into madness because he, like the Jedi, lives at moral extremities. He goes mad and gives himself over to the Dark Side because the Jedi have thoroughly erased any possibility of a middle ground. 
      • The utter distrust that the Jedi Council have of “Gray Jedi” and the fact that “Gray Jedi” means both people who walk the middle ground of the Force and people who don’t answer to the authority of the Jedi Council also point to this. We can see this with Jolee Bindo and Qui-Gon, among others. If you walk the middle line, the Jedi will turn their backs on you. (Pro tip: if nobody is allowed to disagree with you, you’re probably not the good guys.)
    • Aaaaaaaaand finally the whole fight ends and Anakin becomes a weird lava-deformed creature of the night and when he finally wakes up and asks Palpatine if Padmé is okay, Palpatine says, “It seems in your anger, you killed her.” So, Anakin at this point a) is consumed with self-hatred, b) has nothing to live for because all of his loved ones either hate him (Obi-Wan) or are dead (Padmé, theoretically), and c) feels like he has no way out of the horrifying mess he’s put himself in. And here the prequels end.

What I’m trying to say here is that the Jedi aren’t perfect, and they don’t always use the Force for good. (See: “slavery is cool, we guess.”) Their emphasis on shutting out your emotions is ultimately what drives Anakin to the Dark Side because they allow no room for mistakes and therefore erase the possibility of Anakin ever getting help. Or, you know, compassion, which is supposed to be the Jedi version of love. So… The Sith suck. But the Jedi also suck. Not as much, for sure, but they are definitely guilty of some real fucked up things.

Now for the fun part!!!!! Rey, in Ep. VII, wins her battle against Kylo when she gets pissed. You can also see in that scene that when he’s overpowering her, you can see both the red and blue light reflected in her eyes, and when she closes her eyes and thinks “use the Force” and opens her eyes again, you only see the red.

What that piece said to me, and what this trailer and the poster say to me, is that “balancing the Force” means recognizing that emotions are not evil unto themselves, that you can love people and use that love to fuel goodness. Rey has the potential to balance the Force because she has already proven that she can harness emotion, be driven by emotion, and still use that for the Light Side.

Anyway, I fucking love Star Wars, meta is great, Rey can kick my ass any day, and if I’m right and these trailers are backing up my theory I am literally going to lose my mind.

anonymous asked:

I’m also adding Possessive Sherlock here as well, because I LOVE LOVE LOVE “his / My John” SO SO MUCH and literally I fave every fic that has it in there. GUH. 

JEALOUS SHERLOCK

  • Unimpressed by 221b_hound (M, 3106 w.) – Sherlock has no intention of attending the Met’s New Year’s Eve party. The start of a new year is all but meaningless to him. But he ends up there anyway, having odd conversations, and John does not find Sherlock’s jealousy the slightest bit cute. And then there is dancing. Part 10 of Unkissed
  • Unforgiven by 221b_hound (M, 4721 w.) – Sherlock’s latest case is for his ex boyfriend, the brilliant and handsome Professor Victor Trevor. John is not too happy about that. But things aren’t what they seem, an old friend of John’s is involved in the case, and John has a few surprises up his sleeve. Also - a proposal! Part 16 of Unkissed
  • Mine (He Says While Still Being Smol) by beejohnlocked (E, 1,319 w.) – A suspect flirts with John. Sherlock gets a bit jealous. Okay, a LOT jealous.
  • Maintaining A Personal Life by Gingerhermit (E, 24,284 w.) – Sherlock and John discover some interesting revelations about each other’s sexuality, which lead them both to question the assumptions they’ve made about one another for years. In the midst of their mutual discoveries, a dangerous psychopath looms on the side-lines who threatens to destroy their new beginning.
  • For you, there’s only me by shock_blanket (E, 19,557 w.) – Sherlock realizes he has fallen in love with John, but believes he is unlovable. Cue lots of pining and jealousy on Sherlock’s part, followed by our favorite cuddly marksman making it all better. Because for Sherlock, there’s only John.
  • Matters of National Security by mistyzeo (E, 8,465 w.) – John starts dating a male client of Sherlock’s, and Sherlock can’t figure out why he’s so incensed about it.
  • Velvet by headlessjess (G, 1,155 w.) – It’s the day, the wedding day - John and Mary, getting married. And then there’s Sherlock, in pain and in love, without knowing how to deal with it.
  • 5 Times John Got the Girl (and lost her) and 1 Time John Got the Guy (and kept him) by LiviKate (M, 21,695 w.) – John has always had good luck with the ladies. He’s charming, friendly and funny, not to mention great in bed. However, his usual skill with the opposite sex is constantly being thwarted by Sherlock and his outbursts. How will John ever get a leg over when Sherlock is always cockblocking him?
  • Five Times John Noticed But Didn’t Really by ScandalousMinds (T, 6,383 w.) – 5 times John (thought) he noticed something peculiar about his and Sherlock’s relationship but really missed the obvious.
  • The Kissing Disease by cottonballz_of_death (E, 30,856 w.) – John brings home a boyfriend, shocking Sherlock, who long ago gave up hope that his straight flatmate would ever take a romantic interest in him. In a bid to reconnect with John, he tries to infect himself with a “harmless” virus. Neither of them is prepared for the emotional fallout that results.
  • Surety by hudders (G, 2,477w.) – “Sherlock is pissed because it seems that four pints of larger, two shots of tequila and a glass of wine has resulted in Lestrade becoming a little bit too friendly with everyone. And by everyone, Sherlock really means John.”
  • Butterfly, Pinned Under Glass by billiethepoet (E, 4,648 w.) – It started as a desire to keep John safe and whole, and ended up as just desire.
  • Correspondence by Cleo2010 (T, 8031 w.) – Sherlock’s been spirited away on a case for Mycroft. Part of the deal was that he and John could communicate via letter until the case was completed. Maybe the cliche is true, absence does make the heart grow fonder. Or perhaps something is growing on the feet in the fridge. Read their letters month by month. Written after series one.
  • Presence by LostGirl (M, 8625 w.) – Sherlock has recently noticed a shift in his own perceptions, but he can’t quite figure out when it started.
  • Obsession, Appassionato by shinychimera, Yeomanrand (E, 4,249 w.) – John is late, and he hasn’t called, and Sherlock works himself into a state. Part 1 of Love and Ysaye (FAVE!!)
  • Interlude by sussexbound (SamanthaLenore) (G, 2,837w.) – “Are you actually doing anything?” Sherlock scowls. “What?” “Are you busy? Because if not, I could use your help peeling potatoes.” “I’m not eating what you’re making. Why should I peel the potatoes?” John just shakes his head. “Because it might be a polite and thoughtful thing to do for the person who loves you. Just a tip.”Oh…Part 8 of The Homecoming
  • Understanding by sussexbound (SamanthaLenore) (T, 4,556 w.) – John’s face stretches into a smile that fades again, just as quickly. “It just comes like that, sometimes—all of a sudden. You don’t expect it.” He murmurs against Sherlock’s skin. “What does?” “Grief.” Part 9 of The Homecoming
  • Sibling Rivalry Or Fighting Over John Watson by Jessa7 (T, 8K+ w., Romance and Humour, FFNet) – Mycroft is just as much of a genius as Sherlock is. He keeps randomly kidnapping John for chats, and the locations get better. Cue Sherlock’s younger sibling complex rearing up and jealousy ensues.
  • Come Home by hudders-and-hiddles (E, 3,763 w. | more pining than jealous but close enough) – When John leaves for a medical conference, Sherlock tries to entice him back home.
  • The Semantics of Crop Circle Formation: a case study by Sherlock Holmes [unpublished] by canolacrush (M, 41,710 | Cockblocking Sherlock) – “Look at these photographs,” I said, gesturing to the wall of crop circles. “What do you observe?”“Crop circles,” John replied.“Obvious. What else?”“Are…are those intestines surrounding them?”“Yes. The majority are bovine and ovine in origin. The farmers who have acquired these crop circles in their fields have also had a tenth of their livestock murdered and arranged thus.”“Why?” John said, presumably in a rhetorical fashion.I detest rhetorical questions. “That is what I must find out, John.”
  • Down with this Ship by FrostedFlame (PinkOrchid) (M, 10,862 w.) – Sherlock drags John undercover to a gay bar - for a case, of course - looking forward to seeing John flustered by their surroundings (since you know, he’s NOT GAY). John decides that he has hidden both his orientation and his feelings for his daft flatmate for far too long. He is done hiding, time to be honest with his bloody best friend in the world. He just hopes it won’t change anything between them. And then it does.
  • That Partitioning of the Things of Youth by wearitcounts (Sher_locked_up) (E | 35,353 w.) - Victor Trevor is in town, and nobody’s happy. [[I really like this one. Jealous John AND Sherlock and lots of Angst]].
  • Paparazzi by SilentAuror (E, 10,543 w.) – John moves back into 221B Baker Street after his marriage falls apart and the paparazzi won’t leave him and Sherlock alone about the status of their supposed relationship. Sherlock, of course, never denies it, until one day he does…
  • Pattern Behaviour by SilentAuror (E, 14,835w) – Sherlock doesn’t even know why he resents John’s dates so much. Until the day he does know. Slight angst, unrequited feelings (but don’t let that scare you off!) (FAVE!) 

OBSESSIVE / POSSESSIVE SHERLOCK

  • Perdition’s Flames by i_ship_an_armada (E, Treklock, 63,435 w., | mild Possessive Sherlock) – Sherlock would do anything to save him. Risk anything. Give anything. His money, his life. His soul. What he does, though, is change both of their destinies forever. Genetic re-engineering is the only option left. It turns out researchers underestimated the life expectancy and potential abilities of genetically re-engineered subjects. The British government and what would eventually become the United Federation of Planets, however, had not. Part 1 of PF Universe
  • The Things You Hide *Adult Edition* by verityburns (E, 10,821 w.) – Sherlock and John have been working and living together for nearly a year, each finding the other’s friendship to be the one thing they would not risk or want to live without. Until something happens to disturb the status quo…
  • Let Go by thisisforyou (G, 2,743 w.) – In the end, separating John’s things from Sherlock’s in the chaos of their sitting room is like pulling a limpet from a wet rock. Especially when the rock is clinging on for dear life, because Sherlock doesn’t want to let go. 
  • In the cherry blossom’s shade by Eliane (M, 3,934 w.) – “This isn’t new. Sherlock has already done this – has gone through cities, and dingy hotels, and sleepless nights but it was different before. John wasn’t there before. They’re in this together.”
  • The Marriage Proposal Negotiation by Goddess_of_the_Night (G, 2161 w.) –  Sherlock hasn’t ever really done anything the traditional way, so of course it wouldn’t bother him to propose to John even though they’re not even dating. And the fact that John is already on a date with someone else when he decides to do it? Tedious. Marrying John was the only thing he could do to ensure John was his.
  • The Light of Day by allonsys_girl (M, 7297 w.) – Rewrite of the end of Sign of Three. John actually notices Sherlock leaving the reception early, and chases after him. Angsty Johnlock. Happy ending, for sure. Part 1 of The Light of Day
  • Let the Sun Fade Out by nothingislittle (E, 2711 w.) – “He could warm the sun itself, Sherlock thinks, could heat their flat with just his presence, could brighten the room with one dazzling smile or just the sparkling in his eyes. Everything hurts when John looks this beautiful, but it’s a dulcet, aching pain, one that consumes Sherlock from the inside, that sends soft pangs through his abdomen and lodges a lump solidly in his throat. John glows, he glitters, he’s light itself, Sherlock thinks, and doesn’t even bother to scold himself for exaggerating, because he’s not, he’s not, John is everything, he’s beautiful and he shines, he’s everything.”
  • On a Sunday Morning by SD_Ryan for jimmytiberius (G, 3136 w.) – Sherlock has a little problem. He can’t stop obsessing about John Watson.
  • His by I’m Nova (T, 1K+ w., Humour & H/C) – Sherlock doesn’t share what he’s fond of. (FAVE!!)
  • Foresight by niffler09 (K, 2K+w) – It’s raining and neither John nor Sherlock have an umbrella so they huddle under Sherlock’s coat. And then Mycroft walks past and makes smartass remarks. (FAVE!!)
  • Possessive by Fang323 (T, 850w. H/c & Friendship) – His John did not belong. Not here. Not in this blasted hospital. It simply was not logical.

As I’ve said in the past, all my rec lists are of fics I’ve read, so I’m sure I’m missing a tonne more that are probably on my MFL list, but please feel free to add your own recs! 

SaeZen Headcanons (or why this is a Good Ship™

I love the idea of Saeran and Zen together! Here’s a list of hc’s brought to you by the combined efforts of @juminlovesv, @mysticmessengervibes, @rixsig-writes and myself. Enjoy~


-When they first meet, Saeran finds Zen a little overbearing.

-After a little while, he realises that he actually doesn’t mind too much. Zen seems to be the one RFA member who isn’t nervous about starting a conversation with him, and he doesn’t treat him as though he could break at any moment. He treats him like an actual person.

-Zen’s first thoughts on Saeran are that he wants to make him feel like he’s part of the RFA family, because although he doesn’t know the full story, he knows Saeran needs support. He’s willing to be patient and put in the time to get to know him.

-And he knows Saeyoung means well, but he can tell Saeran’s frustrated.

-Zen starts coming over to make sure Saeran gets to go outside and that Saeyoung isn’t being too smothering

-Zen stands up to Saeyoung if he is, and tells him Saeran’s an adult who can make decisions for himself

-He looks up all the good places to go on walks and watch the sky so he can take Saeran there

-When Saeran still isn’t allowed out, Zen will send selfies that include prime shots of the the sky to him on days he can’t visit

-As it turns out, Saeran actually wants to keep his hair bleached along with his ‘edgy’ clothing, but Saeyoung seems to think he needs to wear bulky sweaters and grow his hair out to aid in his recovery.

-Zen ends up helping Saeran bleach his hair, because if it makes Saeran feel more comfortable then how can it possibly be a bad thing?

-He offers to take Saeran shopping to buy clothes he likes and encourage his own style, helping him out and giving him advice, partly inspired by his own ‘bad boy’ phase in high school

-Zen even lends Saeran some of his old clothes from said ‘bad boy’ phase, because even though they’re slightly too big, Saeran seems to like them

-He supports Saeran in expressing himself via clothing and helps him pick things that look good together

-Zen does some research on PTSD and learns as much as he can on how to help others ground themselves so he can make sure Saeran always has someone who knows how to help around when they’re out, and because he just wants to make sure he’s okay and safe

-Saeran actually finds that it’s easier than he expected for him to open up to Zen, because his link to Rika and V isn’t quite as direct as most of the other RFA members

-Zen learns music therapy techniques for the same reasons

-Zen’s always there whenever Saeran needs someone to call, and isn’t shy or embarrassed about singing him to sleep if he needs to

-When Saeran makes significant progress, Zen argues on his behalf if Saeyoung refuses to see it

-He points out all the smaller things that maybe even Saeran hasn’t noticed, which takes both the twins by surprise

-“Hey, I know you’ve done some fucked up shit in the past but man, so have I. You can get through this.”

-Zen doesn’t think of Saeran in terms of being ‘the other Choi twin’ or ‘the Mint Eye hacker’, but as a separate person, a man who once lost his way but is now trying to figure out who he is.

-Zen makes sure to compliment Saeran on things that are unique to him

-Zen makes a point of showing Saeran that friendship is a Good and Wholesome thing, even though he’s wary of it at first

-Initially, Zen just wants to be friends, but the more he learns about Saeran, the more he ends up falling for this curious, loyal, witty guy who was hidden behind the mask he had to wear to survive.

-He helps Saeran discover everything he’s good at, no matter how silly

-Zen encourages Saeran to write down his jokes and comebacks because they’re so clever and might be able to be worked into scripts

-Zen constanty reminds him that not everything comes naturally and you have to practice sometimes

- “Quit comparing yourself to your brother! Your goal shouldn’t be to be better than him, but to be good at what you want. …besides, you’re already better than him. ;)”

-They bond over not finishing/going to school

-They also bond over shitty parents and brothers who think they know best

-Saeran starts to realize it’s okay to like things about himself through how much Zen loves himself

-Saeran likes Zen for who he is without a lot of outside influence (like that he’s a minor celebrity)

-Saeran is very fascinated by the fact that Zen’s willing to help him for absolutely nothing in return

-Saeran randomly surprises Zen with his ‘creepy voice’ and Zen finds it hilarious, telling him he’d be a great voice actor

-He feels accepted by Zen’s acting friends because most of them came from hard backgrounds too and don’t judge him

-Saeran becomes defensive of Zen when he finds out about his family and reminds him that he’s a great person even if they don’t want anything to do with him

-Ofc Saeran sings “Merry Christmas” to Zen in the ‘spooky voice’ and Zen ends up recording it and making it his ringtone

-Saeran and Zen playfully compete to see who can contort their voices to sound the weirdest and Saeran always wins by a long shot

-Saeran really enjoys watching Zen’s shows, but he isn’t always feeling up to going to the theatre, so Zen has someone (Saeyoung) stream it or eventually asks Jaehee to loan Saeran the DVD (a convenient opening for a beautiful friendship between Jaehee and Saeran)

-When Saeyoung prods for compliments, Saeran just says “Thanks for introducing me to Zen.”

-Saeran ends up falling for Zen because of how sweet and caring he is, and Zen is in awe that it’s not because of his looks or job

-Saeran casually acknowledges Zen’s attractiveness but always tells him things he likes more (like how much he genuinely cares for people) about him to remind Zen he’s more than just his looks

  • “You’re so… perfect”
  • “Ikr, I’m pretty handsome”
  • “Not just that. You make me like being alive.”

-Zen is, for once, utterly speechless

-Saeran convinces Zen to take a break now and then to make sure he doesn’t overwork himself

-Saeran makes sure the fridge is stocked with something other than just beer and water, and Zen starts to actually eat properly so he can have meals with Saeran, because he’s way too skinny

-Saeran helps Zen cut back on how much he drinks

-Also, they’re smoking buddies who are both trying to get each other to quit

-Saeran uses his artistic skills to help paint sets (and enjoying it)

-Saeran’s not used to having someone who can match his wit (Saeyoung takes him too seriously, and he can come off as mean to others) but Zen gets it and just hands it right back to him

-He enjoys Saeran’s dry humor

-Zen calls Saeran his ‘Prince’ and Saeran is surprised because he’s never been called anything so positive before

  • “I thought I was the dragon”
  • “Nah, you were just under an enchantment. You were always a prince ;)”
  • “Then you’re the knight who saved me?”
  • “You saved yourself, I’m just lucky enough to get to kiss you after.”

-Zen becomes the clouds in Saeran’s sky, while Saeran is the music in Zen’s life

Samwell 99

A Holsom Brooklyn 99 AU

  • Ok it should be abundantly apparent that Holsom means our favorite lovable puppy-dog eye Jewish boy Adam Birkholtz is Jake Peralta. He’s brash, he’s messy, but he’s a damn fine detective and he knows it/makes sure no one forgets it.
  • Cue his equally brilliant rival/colleague Justin Oluransi who’s by the book, anxiety ridden, has so many spreadsheets and folders for everything under the sun yet he retains an insane amount of knowledge.  
  • We’ll get back to their totally amazing chemistry in a moment

How you Interact: Youtuber Friends

  • A lot of giggling.
  • I’m not even joking; most of your time spent together is laughing at stupid shit or making jokes that make you curl up in a ball because your stomach hurts.
  • You pull faces at each other from across the room or just stare at each other with blank expressions until one looks away of laughs.
  • Near to nothing gets done when the two of you are working on the same thing. Or it’s hurriedly finished at the last second.
  • The videos with you in it are nothing but sarcastic comments and giggling. It’s amazing you actually manage to finish a game and get any type of content for the channel.
  • Amy has designated corners for the two of you.
  • When she’s had enough of your antics or something really needs doing; she’ll sit you in your corner (or at your desk) and put Mark at his.
  • You both grudgingly do the work but snap comments at each other, earning yourselves a harsh look from Amy.
  • But Amy loves you none the less. She’s always excited to see you and the two of you get along so well, it scares Mark.
  • “Oi pretty boy, get your ass over here and help me!”
    “Quit your bitching I’m coming!”
  • “You have such a big head for such a tiny man.”
    “Which head are we talking about here?”
  • It’s a friendship built on humor, but the two of you are always there for each other. With tight hugs that would crush your spines, and long deep conversations that last for hours. Sometimes you’ll call him late at night just to chat because you can’t sleep. And he returns the favor by calling you early in the morning to give him ideas for his channel.

  • When the two of you hang out, it’s a lot of silly shenanigans. Small pranks and I can assure you things will be thrown.
  • You try to copy his wild hand gestures, even try matching his intro voice. However you fail miserably. But he gives you a thumbs up for trying.
  • You end up just mimicking everything he does, and smile innocently when he figures out what you’re doing and glares down at you.
  • When he sings at random moments, you respond by singing either beautifully or make some sort of noise that resembles a banshee. Either way, the two of you make stupid little songs out of everything. Usually you both end up laughing half way through and don’t remember the lyrics afterwards.
  • Wiishu just rolls her eyes and shakes her head at the two of you. Even though she adores you; my god you are so much like Jack it’s like having a twins.
  • You Irish bastard! Get back here so I can kick your pasty ass!”
    “Come at me! I’ll take ya on with one hand tied to my crutch!”
  • You poke fun at his facial hair, threatening to shave it off if he pushes you too far. He responds with a pout and an angry bluff that he’ll turn your hair green if you so much as dare touch him
  • “You have the intelligence of a 4 year old”
    “Says the man who only recently realized why a horn is called a horn.”
  • The two of you may be loud, but everyone adores your friendship. They enjoy seeing the two of you together as it seems to make the world a little brighter. He’s a friend you can count on and talk to about anything. A friendship meant to last.

  • Once, you actually kissed his cheek in front of Mark just because he wouldn’t shut up about how cute you two are. Not only was Mark surprised, but Ethan couldn’t help but giggle and flush a deep red. 

  • But it’s a pretty platonic, laid back friendship. 

  • The two of you playfully yell at each other out of nowhere. Something might fall off his desk and Ethan will blame you for it. 

  • You had screamed at him once because you ate your last bit of pizza and you wanted a bite of his. 

  • At random times the two of you will start dancing to whatever music is playing. Even if there’s only silence one of you might be humming and the other will dance wildly to the tune. 

  • Uncontrollable laughter at random times at stupid things. 

  • You help him with his channel. Doing funny little challenges, maybe a few multiplayer games. His fans love you. They ship you just as much as Mark, Tyler, Amy and Katherine do. 

  • Whenever you’re feeling down he’ll bring you your favorite food and cuddle with you till you feel better. And you return the favor tenfold.

  • Poking his sides as you pass him. He almost crumbles to the ground and pokes his tongue out at you. He’ll get revenge when you least expect it. Tackling you out of nowhere and tickling you relentlessly. 

  • You had missed him dearly when he moved to LA. But you had quickly joined him after getting accepted at a school/job. He helped you move and supported you through the “settling in” part of your new life.

  • You’re his support and you are his. Ethan adores you, adding you as apart of a family he’s built since he moved to LA. You take silly selfies and post them on twitter and Instagram so you have something to embarrass him with later.

tbh I find it interesting how different people interpret the 'you're like a brother to me' line? like to some people, it's just a declaration of how much Shiro means to him, while others see it as a hurdle Keith needs to overcome to recognise his romantic feelings. and then there's those who think it sinks sh3ith entirely. what's ur take on the scene?

ha i feel like ive talked about this so much it would be hard to word it better than i already have, but ill try! 

ok so. thing is, this isn’t the only reference to family we see. keith says they’re all made of the same cosmic star stuff, that they’re “all related.” in episode 2 hunk claims the paladins are all “brothers” and allura tells keith she comes to think of voltron as her new family. so first off, i dont think the brother line automatically disqualifies it as a ship (as you wouldn’t be able to pair up any of the paladins or allura with each other if that was the case). i also think its important to note that while fake shiro keeps pressing this idea that all of team voltron is a family, keith’s focus is entirely on shiro. ive seen plenty of people put lance into this scene, so theres also the fact that, however you feel about the brother line or shiro and keith aside, lots of people can still interpret the situation itself–someone dying on the floor suddenly seeing their greatest hopes and dreams manifest in the form of someone they desperately want to see, someone whom they can’t bear to be abandoned by–as romantic. and again, whether you think its platonic or romantic, bom makes it clear keith still loves shiro.

but real quick, here’s something about it i wrote in one of my other meta, which i think kinda explains it better:

the thing is, shiro is the one who mentions family first. he tells keith “we’re your family” and we get the brother line in response to it. But, shiro said “we.” as in, all the paladins. and we know keith thinks of them all as a family, know that he said “we’re all related” at the end of the olkari episode. (hunk also says all the paladins are brothers, and later allura mentions them all being a family. team voltron is pretty Big on family.) So he could have definitely said, yeah, we’re all a family. But no, he puts all the focus on shiro, and goes “ you‘re like a brother to me.” That one exchange shows keith thinks of his relationship with shiro as being on a whole other level from the rest of team voltron—all of whom he’s already expressed a platonic, familial kind of love for.

Yes, he’s known shiro much longer, but i also think whatever happened back at the garrison, he managed to really click with shiro in a way that’s never quite happened before. Without their backstory, it’s kind of hard to tell. But shiro  must have made one hell of an impression on keith if he ended up being the only one this poor guy opened up to prekerberos. I mean, kollivan tells shiro that keith is desperate to have him at his side. I don’t typically see This Person “desperately wants to see you” used to describe siblings, that definitely has more of an unrequited love vibe to me. If it was strictly familial, i feel like they would have used a term that implies a More Mutual, healthy relationship rather than having this connotation of the person being in agony over their desire.

also, one of keith’s worst fears is apparently confronting his own feelings, something evidenced time and again by how he pushes others away and isolates himself during the whole galra thing

and after how much he’s been hurt and left behind over the years, i think its easy to understand why keith would be so guarded about what he feels and who he strays too close to. If at this point he has romantic feelings for anyone, i think he needs to sort out his fears of abandonment and intimacy first before he even dares to consider being vocal about those feelings. because the way he is now? he’s going to stay silent and just keep throwing up walls to protect himself. 

going back to the brother line in particular, im bi. and i can honestly tell you that saying “youre like a brother/sister to me” when youre scared of how someone of the same gender would react to feeling anything deeper is something people actually do. its a way to kind of backpedal out of the situation and avoid being hurt. its something ive done. so i can see keith throwing it out there as a kind of “safe” way to express how much shiro means to him without being worried that shiro won’t reciprocate his feelings or worse, risk irreparably damaging their friendship over it. especially since his goal here is to try and make shiro stop walking away, to do anything to make him stay. 

i mean honestly everything at this point is still up for interpretation, but thats just how i see it. also, if the staff was so deadset on shiro and keith being brotherly, i dont think they’d support sheith anywhere near as much as they do

Lapidot Moments - The Masterpost

The “Lapidot Moments” series is an ongoing project that aims to discuss all of the possible hints and evidence for the Lapidot ship.  It covers the actual episodes of Steven Universe themselves, as well as possible hints from the Crewniverse and even topics such as the use of actual Peridot and Lapis Lazuli gemstones in crystal healing.

Please don’t look at this post expecting a simple bullet-pointed list - each point is followed by a link, which will take you to a post discussing that subject.  Everything being said is therefore being backed-up with some written analysis and/or images and GIFs from the show.

This masterpost will be updated (and possibly subsequently reblogged) each time we get more Lapidot hints/episodes/evidence.

HINTS FROM THE CREW


MISCELLANEOUS

First time drawing Discord in a long time! I loved how they both came out in this. ✨

And this episode could be yet another that’s seriously getting me interested in the Fluttercord ship, good LORD are they cute!!

💫 SYNOPSIS 💫

After spending a peaceful afternoon having tea at Fluttershy’s cottage, Discord realizes that he’s never had his best friend over in his dimension. He invites her over, and she excitedly accepts. But as he prepares to host for the first time, he realizes that Fluttershy might not be used to – or worse, dislike – how chaotic and wacky his home is. Determined to help her feel comfortable, Discord goes out of his way to make everything as normal as possible. But normal doesn’t exactly sit well with the spirit of chaos…

(I'm sorry in advance for this long ass Sprousehart rant!) Honestly, all this controversy over whether or not SH are dating, needs to stop. I know most people stick to their lanes, but judging by things Lili has quite uncomfortably stated, they quite obviously see tumblr posts picking at every minor detail in their personal lives. Fans literally look for something Cole related in whatever Lili posts/says and vice versa. And the fact Lili can't like or enjoy certain poems or quotes

[CONT.] (even though I feel some of them are suspicious and lead me to believe she is talking about Cole - the one about a CW actor, one’s about not expecting to feel what she feels, about ‘being in deep’ - I honestly can’t imagine her talking about someone else because fans are super crazy and dive deep into celebrities personal lives, we would know if she was seeing/talking about someone else romantically) without feeling violated/nervous to do or post about things she enjoys (hello??

[CONT.] she is clearly extremely close with Cole, something she probably would share more with the world if people didn’t react the way they did) just gets to me.. The whole situation is very delicate and ‘picky’ for me. Because one part of me can’t help but slightly blame Lili & Cole (as bad as it sounds, hear me out).They have repetitively flirted in public, made heart eyes (I get that’s something they maybe can’t/shouldn’t have to control,

[CONT.] But they should at least expect/not get too offended when people don’t mean to sound so invested/forceful in their relationship), called each other ‘friends’ but avoided the dating question (if it wasn’t something more, they’d be like Holland Roden and Dylan O'brien - Stydia’s actors, people who clearly have a bro-like relationship and make sure the world knows it, as well as Madelaine who said ‘God no, Cole is like my brother!’ when asked the dating question Lili pointedly ignored)

[CONT.] been proved to spend intimate evenings together (going on date like lunches too) and mysteriously disappearing on the same weekends we later find out they spent together. I’m all for whatever the hell they are, they clearly respect, trust and deeply care for one and other, and in my opinion, that’s all we need to know. But Cole, being someone who’s been in the spotlight almost his entire life knows what being a celebrity means and how people act how they are going to act

[CONT.] (you can’t change that, or ignore it) so the biggest most effective move I feel the could make is say ‘Hey, we’re together. We make each-other happy. And shouldn’t have to treat one and other like a secret just to enjoy simple privacy.’ and I feel, for the most part, things wouldn’t be as crazy as they are now. I don’t know.. just the fact that they swerve around dating rumors and work the word ‘friend’ into every conversation they have about the other seems to allude to them

[CONT.] (along with all the obsessive ‘breadcrumbs’ I probably shouldn’t even know due to some obsessive detective work) being more. I just wish everyone on Tumblr/Instagram/Twitter realised where it isn’t so bad to support potential real life couples, it certainly isn’t okay to harass them on comment sections and in interviews, and it certainly isn’t okay to super analyse everything the say or do. Sprousehart, I feel, as much as I love and support them no matter what also need to take partial

[CONT.] blame (now that they’re realizing that people don’t just 'ship’ them because they’re together on the show, people aren’t that naive/biased/delusional)and realise whereas they deserve their privacy and the right to do whatever the hell they want, not everything needs to be so blown out of proportion that they feel they can’t express what they are. I don’t want it to come to the obsessive and crazy stage Nian/Larry stans reached and potentially ruined friendships and story-arcs as well as

[CONT.] causing implications in real life relationships. I feel SH shippers could reach that level if all this obsessiveness doesn’t change. Idk, these are my long assed thought’s.. what do you feel? I’m sorry if this is too much, or if you don’t agree or want to share this. I’m just shy posting such thoughts on my account (one I’m sure you’re aware of) and hope to be told all my notions and thoughts on the mess the fandom is all helping to build aren’t completely wrong or misplaced.

[CONT.] Thank-you so much if you actually took time to understand or share your thought’s on that extremely long and crazy rant that I needed to get out. Thanks for even just reading or listening in general. I know you have certain opinions on SH - one’s I agree a lot on. And you are very kind and understanding so I thought this was the place to go. I didn’t mean offense by any of this. I was just questioning where the blame falls and that every SH fan no matter how small has contributed to this

i’ve gotta say when i woke up to 11 messages i was like “oh, shit, i really pissed somebody off.” so, thank you for not being anonymous hate. my blog is definitely a place where people can share their thoughts and feelings on whatever, even if i don’t personally agree or know how to respond to it. i’m glad that you’re not excusing the fandom for making everything lili and cole do about each other. a lot of people on this site (and i can only really speak for this site because i don’t venture very deep on twitter and i don’t have an instagram) have turned lili and cole into a ship rather than individual people, and that’s just not right. i do disagree with some of it, though, like it being partially lili and cole’s fault 

they shouldn’t have to change the way they look at each other, or talk to each other, or interact in anyway because it might give people ideas. that’s almost like victim blaming– they were acting flirty, so it’s only natural that people would think they’re dating and analyze everything they do to try and “prove” that they are. they don’t have a right to be upset or uncomfortable about it because they were asking for it with all those shoulder touches. can you see why i don’t think that’s quite right? i know you’re not saying it to that extreme, but it does kind of imply that 

as you said, cole has been around this his entire life– so he likely knows that no matter what they do (confirm or deny) it’s not going to stop the harassment. if they deny, people will call them liars. if they confirm, the harassment will just change form. instead of constantly asking them if they’re dating, people will start asking them if they’re still together. either way the bombarding doesn’t stop. perhaps they decided (as friends or more than friends) that the best decision was just to ignore the dating rumors. there’s nothing they can do to stop that analyzing. that’s on us. i’ve been around long enough to know that them declaring that they’re together would not stop the fans trying to make everything they say or do about each other. in fact, a new level of harassment might be added if they were to come out as “in a relationship.” people would spam their twitters and instagrams with comments like “WHY DO YOU NEVER POST PICTURES WITH COLE” and “HOW COULD YOU PHOTOGRAPH HER WHEN YOU HAVE LILI” and “ARE YOU GUYS STILL TOGETHER?” on tumblr people would start freaking out that they broke up if they went too long without liking each other’s pictures or being spotted out at lunch together 

as far as i know, last night was the only time either of them have implied that the over analyzing bothers them. they’ve actually been quite chill about it. it’s their friends, family, and co-workers that are getting openly upset/annoyed for them. their response to it seems to only have been to post less of each other, which i find very sad. something i think you agree with. if people didn’t make such a huge deal out of everything they do and spam their social media accounts, we’d likely get to see a lot more of them. they’d be more comfortable sharing photos and videos with us, like they are with cami and kj. i also think it needs to be pointed out that kj and cole go on long weekend trips together all the time and cami and cole also have that teasing vibe lili and cole have– so what makes weekend trips with lili and cole mean more than weekend trips with cole and kj? what makes lili teasing cole mean more than cami teasing cole? the trips, the teasing, the lunches, the touches– they’re not just exclusive to SH. those things shouldn’t be considered “proof” unless you’re also willing to admit it could mean something for the other pairings. i see people argue that they’re much more secretive about doing those things with each other than the other cast which is sketchy… but they don’t get harassed about cami and kj the way that they do each other (or at least not as much). that could be why they don’t post as much when they’re together as easily as it could be they’re trying to keep their romance hush hush 

as for the quotes lili likes on instagram– sure, she could have liked them with somebody in mind, but you don’t have to be in a relationship to appreciate a quote or poem about love. i save a TON of romance quotes on my pinterest and i’m not in a relationship. i’ve never been in love. that’s part of what i think she was talking about yesterday. she doesn’t want to share her poems because she feels like we’re going to declare that she wrote it with somebody in mind or try to apply it to somebody in her life when it could actually just be an arrangement of words that she liked. i mean, foster the people have a song about a school shooting, but that doesn’t make me think they’re homicidal 

i definitely agree that things need to change before we become toxic and take a toll on irl relationships. cole and lili ending up like nina and ian is like nightmare #1. i don’t want bughead to suffer because lili and cole had a falling out, especially if part of that falling out was because we were stressing them out so much and making them uncomfortable. i also don’t want to stress them out and make them uncomfortable. they don’t deserve to feel that way. they deserve to have a little privacy, and should be able to post pictures (with or without each other) without people screeching about sprousehart. i don’t think that there’s anything wrong with thinking they’re cute and appreciating their relationship and maybe even thinking they’d be good together, but there’s a line between appreciation and obsession. a line between appropriate behavior and inappropriate behavior, and this fandom is really starting to struggle to stay on the right side of those lines 

anonymous asked:

Out of all the love stories that are done well, that you like, which one is your fave (kdramas and american dramas included)? And also list them in order. Please and thank you!

It’s really interesting because I have a few of these lists floating around because the more I get exposed to television, the longer my list gets. What I’m going to do is, tell you my top two that haven’t changed and will most likely stay my top two, then I’m going to include the love stories that I’ve been recently exposed to but that have affected me deeply or made me gush and then my old reliables and I’ll try to do them all in order.

Top Two.

1. Kim Shin and Eun Tak, Goblin The Lonely and Great God

I’m sorry if it’s repetitive but it’s the sheer emotion in this love story. It’s one of those unshakeable, profound, cosmic, epic romances that really touch you and the chemistry is just sheer magic (part of it is because of the fantastic element and how that bleeds into the romance, for instance Kim Shin has the power to control the weather. If he’s sad it rains, if he’s happy — or drunk — cherry blossoms bloom and that directly relates to what happens or doesn’t happen to Eun Tak who is in a way cursed)

In The Vampire Diaries, the show always talks about how everything is heightened as a vampire, extreme highs and earth-shattering lows and that’s like the romance between these two characters, it’s highly dramatic without veering into melodrama and they can also be quite adorable.

The show and their story stayed with me for months, I’ve said it time and time again but I couldn’t hear any music from this show without crying because I was so emotional and I couldn’t shut up about it because it moved me that deeply and I’ve just never had such a strong emotional attachment to a couple before. Like with Stelena, I love them, I’ll cape for them, I’ll vid them, I think they’re a beautiful love story and I’m attached to them for sure but not in the same way as Kim Shin and Eun Tak where I was almost, like, devastated by how attached I got to that story. And I think another reason why I got attached to it so severely is because if it was a North American show, I think it would’ve been a disaster and the declarations they make to each other would’ve been severely codependent and toxic but it worked so beautifully and seamlessly here.

2. Stefan and Elena, The Vampire Diaries

I had ships I was passionate about before Stelena but it was more like, I really liked seeing those two characters together. Stelena was the first ship where I think I was actually invested in their story and could fully articulate why

and saw chemistry and knew what it was right away.

It was a relationship that made complete sense and was still magical and passionate and transcendental at the same time and it was the first time I was really inducted into fandom where I’d be like, No, they’re actually a well-written beautiful love story. Fight Me.

Very Recent Ships

1. Yuri and Victor, Yuri on Ice

Barring sort of watching Inuyasha as an angsty teen, this is the first time I’m watching anime and my friends are all huge anime people so my facebook was going crazy about Yuri on Ice when it was on and I was still uninterested but I decided to watch it and the relationship between Yuri and Victor is so heartbreakingly intimate, like there is sexual tension and it’s very sensual and erotic without being pornographic but what’s really great about it is that the sensuality and the eroticism springs from the fact that this is a love story beyond platonic love, beyond romantic love, it’s just love? Like it’s actually pure, true love between two human beings who share a connection with each other and it isn’t innocent it’s just uncorrupted but also surprisingly seductive. Like I didn’t anticipate to get excited and for my heart to race seeing their story unfold.  

It was a very happy surprise.

2. Dong-Man and Ae-ra, Fight For My Way

Literally started this drama yesterday and caught up to all of the episodes today, very sad there are only 4 episodes left. This is actually probably my favourite friendship to romance relationship because it’s super realistic in really funny

and vulnerable ways.

But I also really love these two characters paired together because they’re both extremely independent people who rely on each other, this couple manages to strike a balance I rarely see on North American television where they’re fiercely, ferociously protective of each other

without being codependent. And I just really like how Dong-Man encourages Ae-ra to be emotional, to be vulnerable, how e tells her it’s not cool to pretend to be OK when she’s sad, how being strong is being in touch with how you feel and how Ae-ra pushes Dong-Man to have confidence, to be strong and determined and it’s not a big deal. The reciprocity is on point. Plus their chemistry is insane.

3. Eun Chan and Han Kyul, Coffee Prince

This love story was hard for me to watch because it was a romance that tore each of them up since Eun Chan was lying about being a boy and falling for Han Kyul and Han Kyul thought he was falling for a boy so went through a lot of psychological and emotional turmoil and it goes on for a very long time but their chemistry was really great and the sense of push-pull was done extremely well, the angst, the struggle, the way they show how much they like each other, like it just hit all of the notes though really good acting so it’s a story that stuck with me.

4. Noah and Rosalee, Underground

It still hurts me that the show got cancelled but Noah and Rosalee’s relationship really stuck with me partly because of the insane chemistry, I had a post on them talking about gazes and you all know how much I love gazes and for gazes to work you need potent chemistry which they have

Also partly because there’s a delicateness and gentleness and just pure affection in their romance in a world and environment that is so harsh and so brutal and so unjust and so violent towards them for being black in America and partly because it’s symbolic.

5. Nick and June, The Handmaid’s Tale

That chemistry, that pure things unsaid, intense, heart pounding, quiet yet potent chemistry.

Old Reliables

1. Basically every ship on Spartacus unless it includes Gannicus because fuck Gannicus

4. Oz and Willow/Buffy and Angel, Buffy The Vampire Slayer

5. Michael and Jane, Jane The Virgin

6. Matt and Julie/Jess and Vince on Friday Night Lights

7. Pam and Jim, The Office

i'd love to hear about your pre-war alfor and zarkon hcs if you're willing to share!

none of this is ever going to be canon but bc season 2 didn’t give me the pre-war information I so desperately crave, I have to create my own content:

  • Alteans and Galra were aware of each other’s existence, but it took them quite a long time to actually be able to visit each other’s homes
  • they have to learn each other’s language(s)
  • obviously, due to cultural differences, misunderstandings ensue
  • a concept: young!Haggar indulging in Galran culture like the nerd she is and gushing to Alfor about how much!! they can learn!! from this Galra race!!
  • she’s very enthusiastic about other alien cultures and befriends a lot of the Galra (much to the disdain of the higher raking Alteans)
  • there aren’t many natural sources of light on planet Galra. the inhabitants are used to dim light and dark environments… but the guests aren’t
  • please imagine young Alfor strolling through the corridors of a Galra ship, barely able to see anything, and out of nowhere, Zarkon appears
  • Alfor lets out an inhumane screech
  • on that day, his soul left his body and ascended into the never ending void of space
  • ZARKON HAS A TWISTED SENSE OF HUMOUR AND THINKS IT’S FUNNY
  • does it again
  • and again
  • one time he tried to jump out behind the closet but Alfor punched him square in the face, knocking him out
  • Alfor never let him live it down
  • Zarkon also has a weird obsession with facial hair. “Beard? You mean these protein strands just grow on your face??”
  • he once shaved Alfor’s eyebrows off in his sleep just to see if they’d grow back
  • don’t ever ask Alfor about it or he’ll cry
  • Zarkon will sometimes smooch Alfor on the cheek and when Alfor asks why he says “because no one will ever believe you”
  • Galra don’t have day/night on their planet, so they don’t have regular sleeping schedules. Instead they take many short naps throughout the “day”
  • Zarkon will take a nap anywhere
  • I repeat, anywhere
  • just imagine the Very Intimidating™ Zarkon curling up like a cat and falling asleep in the cockpit of the black lion
  • or on the kitchen table in the castle of lions before an important meeting
  • if it gets too loud bc others are present, he’ll withdraw to a more quiet place. (like Alfor’s bed. or one of the unoccupied bedrooms where he cannot be found)
  • this annoys Alfor to no end, but if a Galra is asleep you can’t?? wake them??? it’s too dangerous
  • they’re not inherently perilous or something, just really moody and temperamental. Do Not disturb a Galra during their nap (I cannot stress this enough)
  • Zarkon develops a habit of stealing Alfor’s food
  • at first he was just messing with the king but he starts to genuinely take an interest in altean meals because they taste so much better than anything his own people have ever come up with
  • Zarkon does not care if Alfor isn’t seated next to him during meals. this guy will reach across 5 seats to swap Alfor’s plate when he isn’t looking
  • Galra can’t hold alcohol very well. I’m going to leave this one to your imagination
  • I know Zarkon seems hard as nails on the outside but this almighty overlord has a weak spot for babies (you can pry this headcanon out of my cold, dead hands)
  • WHEN ALLURA IS BORN ZARKON INSISTS HE GETS TO SPEND TIME WITH THE BABY PRINCESS
  • Alfor panics. Altean babies aren’t as robust as young Galra and Zarkon has no idea how to handle Altean infants
  • “What do you mean you don’t pick your babies up by the ears”
  • “Alfor. Are you listening. How am I supposed to hold your daughter”
  • he’s the worst babysitter
  • but Allura likes him! she’s a though baby!!
  • Zarkon doesn’t know at which age altean babies learn to talk so he’s really surprised when one day Allura asks out of the blue “why don’t you have the floof ears”
  • Alfor doesn’t know how to feel about Zarkon and Allura’s relationship but he trusts Zarkon and as long as Allura is happy, anything is fine
  • Allura starts picking up galran swear words
  • But Zarkon didn’t teach her?? He doesn’t swear very often?? He’s a quiet guy
  • (If you listen closely you can hear Haggar’s mischievous laugh in the background)
  • over the course of time, Alfor and Zarkon developed a really close friendship that could have lasted a lifetime
  • and maybe, just maybe, Zarkon still thinks about Alfor when wandering through the empty halls of his ship.

Hey there love! Could you do an imagine where the reader and joe meet online (she’s American) and she flies out to meet him and just a bunch of fluff and happiness? I love your writing, and I could use something happy tbh 💕💕
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Being a Youtuber was something you had enjoyed since day one, and even though you were still a small youtuber with just five hundred thousand subscribers you were still proud of yourself for reaching that goal, you loved to lay down on your bed and scroll down the comments of your videos.

In your latest video-which was a Q & A-someone had asked you which youtuber you wanted to collaborate in a video and without hesitating you answered Joe Sugg, you also admitted how much you admired his work and how funny you thought he was?

At the end of the video-and just for fun-you asked your subscribers to go and spam Joe on Twitter and tell him that you wanted to do a collab with him.

The day the video came out your phone was blowing up with tweets in which both you and Joe where tagged in you smiled to yourself thanking you had such support for all your followers, and three hours after people started spamming Joe you got a new notification that immediately caught your attention.

“Joe Sugg mentioned you in a tweet”

You clicked it as soon as it popped up in your screen

“Heard you wanted to collab @yourusername?”

It was then that you felt a huge wave of excitement cursing through your veins, you wanted to scream and jump all around the apartment, but instead you decided to smile like an idiot as your shaky fingertips typed a response.

“Maybe 😉 What proceeds now? 🤔”

It didn’t took long for him to reply

“I guess your phone number would be a good start 😏”

That’s how your relationship started, of course after Joe’s last reply people couldn’t help but comment “I ship this” or “I fully agree with this friendship” it made you chuckle inevitably.

After you exchanged numbers the texts were coming back and forth, FaceTime calls, comments and likes all around your social media but everyone had the same question.

When will you you two collab?

The thing was that you lived in Las Vegas while he was in London and trying to get your schedules to actually work out was definitely easier said than done, but you were glad you got to actually know him outside your screen so that when you actually collab it wouldn’t be awkward.

But it was one day, after 6 months of knowing this simple roof thatcher, that with time became a big influencer on YouTube around the world, you could actually know him in the flesh.

He said he would fly to Las Vegas instead of you coming to London since it was easier for the both of you-and also cheaper for him-. You also asked Joe if you could blog his arrival to Las Vegas, which he had absolutely no problem with.

So present day you grabbed your vlogging camera and its flexible tripod-that you twisted around your arm-as you turned it on, previously making sure it was perfectly settled.

“So hello to all of you watching me, today it’s going to be an exciting day because we’re picking Mr. Sugg himself from the airport, so let’s dive in today’s adventure” you chipped as you opened the front door of your car.

Pausing the recording you climbed up and took the camera to put it behind the wheel in the car tripod you had bought a month ago, after that you restarted the recording smiling widely at the camera as you put your seatbelt on.

“To the airport!"you exclaimed making a weird voice as you simultaneously started the car driving into the highway in direction to the airport "Now if I’m being honest I’m scared but also quite excited, is that even a thing?” You laughed nervously

Then the keyboard of your car ringed, you looked over and realized Joe was calling you. “Oh look it’s Joe!” You informed looking at the camera for a second before you quickly picked up the call. Hey Joe! Say hi to the vlog!“ You said cheerfully

"Hey guys!” He replied quiet happily making your smile grew wider “We just landed” he mentioned casually as you finally parked at the airport.

“Awesome! I’m just parking the car”
“See ya in a bit then?”
“You bet” you replied teasingly making him laugh, after you said goodbye since he had to pick up his luggage the call was ended.

Entering the place you continued talking to the camera nonchalantly making some jokes here and there walking to the room where he appeared shortly after “Oi! Here he comes!” You chipped focusing the camera on him, he was caring a medium length suitcase and a backpack also wearing his usual “nerd” glasses as you called them.

His eyes never left yours as he approached, until his arms wrapped around your body almost perfectly, your senses welcoming the scent of men cologne that his shirt reeked of, both of you hugging each other tighter not wanting that moment to end.

“Wow you’re quite more muscular than I imagined you would be” you teased taunting his biceps making him chuckle at your witty manners “Well so here’s what we’re gonna do, since you’re taller I’ll take your backpack and you’ll hold the camera.

He nodded as you exchanged your belongings, but he still took the suitcase with him "Now that I’m in the vlog it would sure go viral” he joked running his fingers through his hair, focusing the camera on the exact moment were you rolled your eyes at him.

“Haha” you laughed sarcastically as you headed over to the parking lot

The ride was nice, Joe used the aux cord and both of you sang some of the songs that were on his Spotify playlist, you over exaggerated the high notes and almost dropped the camera at some point but you knew it would be fun to watch for everyone at home.

Finally you arrived to the building in which you lived in, and as Joe pressed the elevator button after giving you back the camera, you took this as a chance to do something crazy, so you smiled at the lend placing your index finger on your lips in sign to keep quiet before you jumped on his back.

“Oh shit” he laughed slightly stumbling aside, luckily for the both of you he quickly regained his balance and placed his hands on your thighs to keep your legs on his waist, before he was sure you could hold them by yourself taking the suitcase again.

The doors of the elevator opened and he was quick to jump in and you took care of pressing the button of your floor, a few seconds passed and the doors opened again revealing a few people of different ages waiting for the elevator.

You didn’t actually care about the people watching you, since from the moment the doors opened you hollered “Giddy up, giddy up” in a horrible cowboy accent, the brunette boy complied your demands as he went up and down slightly, making the both of you laugh obnoxiously as you neighed down the hall

“I guess that’s all for today’s blog! Please like and subscribe and do all those amazing stuff only you know how to do.”

“Bye!” Both you and Joe said at unison before you finished recording.

anonymous asked:

can you name 5 things you dont want to see in s2? shippings aside

most of the things that i don’t want to happen regarding ships are for deeper reasons than just it opposes my ship, so it’s kind of hard for me to exclude shipping from my list. most of my fears for season 2 have to do with romance, so i can’t keep shipping off my list entirely– but i’ll explain into further detail why it’s on my “please, god, don’t” list for season 2 (or any future season). 

  1. B*RCHIE & the BAV love triangle. i will stop watching the show if ether of these things happen. my love for bughead plays into that, but it’s also much much deeper. having romantic b*rchie happen, or resurrecting the triangle from the first two episodes, destroys the bond between the core four. i’ve watched so many shows where i couldn’t invest in the friendships because they were all dating and fucking each other. you cannot convince me that somebody would be okay with their best friend dating somebody that they used to be deeply in love with. for me, it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been broken up, it’s just something that you don’t do. and you definitely cannot convince me that two people can still be best friends with no animosity after fighting over the same romantic interest, especially if one of them is/was in a relationship with the person they both have feelings for (ex: peyton and brooke from oth). i’m not interested in seeing the beautiful friendship between veronica and betty be decimated for a love triangle that has already been done a hundred different ways. it had a long life (too long). let. it. die. and i don’t want to see the bond between the core four be strained for a coupling that a) very few people want and b) robs betty of all of the character development she’s experienced since we first met her. she has come so far from her comic counter part who let people walk all over her and pined after archie despite the fact she was clearly second best to him. and how am i possibly supposed to believe that archie is riverdale’s “hero” if he assured veronica that he only views betty as a friend, and then proceeded to sleep with her, only to turn around and be like psych. one of the things that has kept me from disliking archie is the fact that, despite all of his screw ups, he was still a good person. having archie develop feelings for betty after his and veronica’s conversation in ep 13 would turn him into a smarmy fuckboy. i’m not going to watch a show where out of our four main characters: one receded on all the growth she’s experienced to be with a boy that has only treated her like shit (romantically) in the past, and another can’t figure out what he wants, so he dips his hand into every honey pot in riverdale; not realizing how it hurts them and their friendships with each other 
  2. keep paranormal shit away from riverdale. if you want to have your show be paranormal, you have to introduce that right away. you can’t start your show as human monsters and then suddenly shift to actual monsters. it just doesn’t work. a prime example being pretty little liars– out of nowhere they started introducing ghosts and psychics and it left the audience like ???? that’s one of the reasons their pll spin-off, ravenswood, flopped so hard. they were counting on the pll audience to also watch the spin-off show, but a lot of people liked pretty little liars as a show about human monsters. they didn’t want to watch a show that took place in the same universe, but with ghosts and demons and prophecies. if they want to keep doing little dream sequences with zombies and having the kids talk about legends involving witches in the woods as a nod to roberto's afterlife with archie comic, that’s fine, but don’t make it real 
  3. no more incest. it’s upsetting that i even have to type this. please, stop. no more twincest vibes with cheryl and jason, and no more cousins sleeping together and having children. i don’t even want step-sibling type incest, which means no fred/hermione or fp/alice 
  4. i don’t want a bughead break up. this one does have a bit of bias, but it’s more than just my love for them. it’s why i love them. betty and jughead have one of the most refreshing, honest, believable, loving, supportive, healthy relationships i have ever seen on television. i know that some people, for some reason, believe that for a couple to be interesting they have to break up and get back together throughout the show, and i firmly disagree with that. in fact, i find on again-off again relationships to be obnoxious. they’re either breaking up over something stupid that they should be able to work through with conversion and time, or something terrible that makes them getting back together later hard to believe. the more they do that, the less refreshing, honest, believable, loving, supportive, and healthy that pairing becomes. i don’t want that for bughead. i’ve said it before, but i’d like to see them have a relationship like nathan and haley from oth. they got together in the first season and stayed together the entire show (9 seasons). their relationship was not boring. the writers put them through hell, and they stumbled a few times, but they fought through it and always came out stronger. that was amazing to watch because it made their love feel so real and was such a rarity on tv. it still is. the way they wrote season 1, they have a prime set up to make betty and jughead their anchor couple. i want that. i want that so much more than the tired break up, date other people, get back together formula most television writers fall back on. and nobody give me the “it’s not realistic” speech. this is a show where they hid heroin in maple syrup barrels. it also might be rare for teens to get together and stay together, but it is most definitely not impossible or unrealistic. i’m sure that quite a few of my followers have parents that started dating in high school and are still married 
  5. i also don’t want betty to become a south side serpent. i know a lot of people like the idea of her going dark and becoming the “serpent queen,” but i think it kind of romanticizes her mental illness. she’s not dark betty or light betty, she’s both. having her go full dark is just as unhealthy as what she’s doing now. she needs to learn that it’s okay to be both. she needs to find balance, and (i don’t think) joining the serpents is going to help with that. i want her to spend time in the south side, and make friends there, because i think being around people who are unapologetically themselves will help her learn to accept all parts of herself, but i don’t want her to become a serpent. it also tethers betty and jughead too tightly together. they need to be their own independent people within their relationship

Who are people you ship Lee Jordan? What headcanons do you have for them?

lemme tell ya about how much i love Fred x Lee my sweet sweet anon:

- so Fred George met Lee clearly on their first day of hogwarts. 

- at the Gryffindor table right after the sorting Fred and George come and sit on either side of lee and introduce themselves with identical grins and then start with the witty banter (and making fun of percy)

- Lee is sitting there laughing the whole time (and feeling really special that these two larger than life non-stop people have decided that he is gonna be their friend)

- on the first night at Hogwarts they are all super buzzed cause W o W there is a whole freaking castle to explore and because of that there must be a heck load of mischief to get up to

- in their first class they bust in late all three of them: Fred with an (apparently) apologetic grin, George with a terribly repressed smirk and Lee with a crooked smile 

- (this is one of the only times they get away with it because ‘we are so sorry sir we got lost’ can actually be believable when it hasn’t been used every day of the week before) 

- within the week Lee can tell the twins apart (finally there was to be no more “haha we gotcha i’m actually Fred”) 

- basically their friendship keeps growing and growing as friendships do 

- then one day someone asks Lee how he’s so good at telling the twins apart and he stops and thinks for a second cause really he can’t quite put his finger on it

- he tries to explain the subtle differences in appearance to the person inquiring but he’s distracted by how they both ‘feel’ different 

- George was like squinted eyes of concentration,and burst of laughter, and being always prepared to either hug you or kill someone for you 

- and Fred was (wow) Fred was just completely different he was fast and passionate talk (that would always make butterflies erupt in Lee’s stomach), and prideful ‘dare me to’ eyes (that always made Lee’s heart lurch), and utter faithfulness, the kind of person you would trust with your life (which Lee obviously would without hesitation) 

- and shit was Lee in love with his best friend? (one of them anyway)

- then later that week in the common room Fred is sitting there staring at Lee’s hands (cause gosh they are gorgeous) and he decides it’s about time that he talks about this mega crush cause it’s eating him alive and cause it’s the Fred Weasley thing to dive head first into everything he says “hey Georgie, mate, ever think you might have a semi-thing for Lee? cause ya know I’d relate.” 

- George doesn’t even look up from what he’s doing to respond “mate, I don’t but I freaking know you do” completely chill about it (even though inside he is screaming ‘FINALLY’ and is super happy cause he knew all of last’s weeks talks about Lee’s love life and offering to find him a quality love interest the week before had perhaps kicked Fred’s sorry ass into a realisation about his feelings) 

- at first Fred is all like ‘why didn’t you say something?’ and then ‘wait.. George do you think he likes me back?’

- and George sighs the biggest sigh and gives Fred the most deadpan, tired look and says “of freaking course he does and in fact i’m getting bloody sick of the two of you pretending like you’re not utterly head over heels for each other so please, brother dear for the sake of, what’s left of, my sanity - piss off and do something about it.” 

- Fred just stares for a moment at George, then summons his courage (cause if he’s gonna ask out Lee it’s gonna be smooth), and walks over to Lee who is trying to actually do his transfiguration homework (and because of that he has to be located a strategic few feet away from the twins) 

- Lee sees Fred coming out of the corner of his eye and his stomach erupts (as usual) and he thinks okay today I’m gonna tell him cause I’m damned sick of all of this, he properly looks up from his essay when Fred sits down on the couch beside him and is met with a pointed smirk from the red-head

-”hey Lee, do you think I’m cute?” and Lee is like well this is not what I was expecting (and of course I think you are cute are you crazy?), but frick how do I respond to this, and then he catches a glimpse at George doing frantic miming that seemed to heavily involve a heart shape and kissy faces and Lee thinks what the hell (sure as hell hoping George doesn’t think that it’s some kind of joke)

- “Actually Fred I’ve always thought of you as some one who was more.. unbelievably sexy.” 

- Fred almost blows his smooth demeanor with a mixture of laughter and shock (and also sheer giddiness cause - Lee thinks he’s sexy!?) 

- “Wow… um, good, so since we got that cleared up, did you want to maybe go out on a date sometime?” 

- and of course Lee says yes 

- and of course they celebrate with a kiss (which seriously was worth the wait but also at the same time not at all cause as Fred will often point out they had wasted a lot of time not-kissing when they were ‘just friends’) 

- and of course after they kiss Fred returns to his twin a little pink in the face with the widest grin and says “Hey Georgie. Just saying - Lee thinks I’m the better looking twin.”

(and I got fully carried away and could write another entire thing about how they are freaking adorable in a relationship but I shall stop (for now…))

Disney Movies

A/N: I don’t have a good explanation for this. I truly don’t. Forgive me, it’s 3 am and I wrote this in a single day and I know I have soulmates and a few other requests and fics to tend to. I’m too inconstant. I’m a big kid, what can you do?

  • Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad

The Lion King! I’m sure Simba’s history and the talk about “who you are” would touch Altaïr’s apparently “cold and stoic” heart — but you know him well enough to tell apart the truth and what he tells others. He knows most of quotes and secretly memorized “The Circle of Life” accidentally, even though you could swear his favorite song was “Just Can’t Wait to Be King” — you found out when you woke up one morning and Altaïr was in the kitchen, brewing coffee and humming the song while he watched the steam rise up with a distant look. The movie has kinda turned into a comfort animation he turns to every once in a while just to keep the memory of the feeling he had when Simba climbed the rock and roared to claim his place as the king.

anonymous asked:

pLEASE write out some arranged marriage au's for perc'ahlia. i BEG you

literally all you have to do is ask, so long as you don’t mind a summary of ideas rather than actual fics because…..i would die if i tried. but i have many ideas regarding these two and marriage, and quite a few are arranged marriages. let’s see….

You have your classic arranged marriage, based on a timeline where the de Rolo family is alive and Vax and Vex are far more controlled by their father’s wishes. I like to think of this one as the left overs idea, seeing as it’s founded on the principles of Frederick and Johanna having to arrange a marriage for their third child who will not go out courting, and Syldor having to make a match for Vex before he can feasibly find a future husband for Velora. The deal is struck after months of arguing, when Vex finally agrees to marry some little lordling from the north because, well, the rumors about him are that he can’t be bothered about a wife, so he ought not to mind one that spends more time in the woods than by his side, right? And she’s heard Whitestone is lovely if chilly and distant (thought, really, that’s a virtue when it comes to getting as far from Syngorn as possible, and she even gets to take Vax with her).
They meet as proper nobility and this would be the fic in which Percy politely offers to cut his finger on the sheets. Instead, they stay up most of the night with Percy carefully explaining Whitestone’s traditions and Vex explaining how rubbish some of that is, and the maid finds them asleep against each other in the morning, still propped up against the headboard in casual day clothes, a map and what looks like half a written and scribbled-over argument in parchment pieces strewn across the bed. She’ll have to be checking the linens later, then.

Then we have the canon-compliant arranged marriage that I have seen written in some form or another, where Vex was supposed to be married off to Percy, but then of course the Briarwoods happened and Byroden happened and it never got all worked out. This idea mostly involves me wanting to write Vax being an ass about it on principle and/or Cassandra casually mentioning Percy’s betrothed, which causes a whole slew of confusion and one ill-fated quest to make sure he isn’t still engaged (which of course he is) because Percy really does not want to be engaged to anyone but Vex (which of course he isn’t). The endgame of this whole comedy of errors being Vex holding the papers legally binding them hostage, while Percy tries to grab them back because “It ought to be our choice, I don’t want to push a deal on you that you had no say in.” “Oh, so you’re not interested in making deals you don’t know the full repercussions of now, hm?” “I’m not - It’s not the repercussions I’m working about, it’s - I’d rather make this deal with you - give me the damn papers, Vex!”

I also have this idea for something very Swan Princess-esque where Vex and Percy grew up knowing they were going to be married, but then i also have this love of doing things a little backwards. So Percy is the one who starts falling in love first - in tiny inches, with the way Vex stands straight and tall with her brother when they’ve gotten in trouble again, with her laugh when it’s soft and light and then also when it’s too loud and sudden and she sometimes looks as though it’s caught her by surprise. He falls in love with her messy braid and the feathers in it, her awful-sounding Abyssal and the way it makes their tutors cringe, her insistence on keeping both a pet bear and a table full of cosmetics, the both of which she learns to wield and treasure for how they keep her safe and happy.
Vex, on the other hand, feels only a grudging sort of friendship. Sure, Percy’s alright. He’s clever enough and polite and stopped trying to lock her and Vax out of his rooms years ago (for all the good it ever did him when Vax was more than happy to pick said locks). And Vex knows she’s going to marry him one day, and that will be fine, but she doesn’t expect him to have grown to tall over a year. She doesn’t expect him to have a jawline she can see her lips following or eyes that beg to go darker with passion, and she certainly doesn’t expect his familiar wry grin to punch the breath from her chest when it’s directed at her now. He shows her the siege arrows he’s made (”They’re much more powerful than the exploding ones, you see. You’ll have to test them, but I’ve also had an idea for something like a grappling arrow that I’d like to try if you’re willing to give me some input.”) and Vex remembers the things he’s made and done for her and all the times she never thanked him and he never seemed to mind, and oh. Well. There’s an idea. Perhaps he loves her, and Vex finds herself a little in love with the thought.

The last thought I’ve had is angst-ridden and only half-formed, but it begins with the Briarwoods deciding to marry off the surviving de Rolos instead of Percy escaping, and he gets shipped to Syngorn. Vex is determined to hate him, just like everything Syldor has ever brought into their lives, but he’s so damn fragile when he arrives, and Vex has never been able to walk away from broken things. He’s her husband, yes, but Vex does a lot more of being his only friend than being a wife, and Percy slowly opens up. The twins are not nearly as bad as he’d dreaded and it’s certainly better than staying trapped in his old home, shadowed by monsters and wraiths, or chained in the dungeon and left to Anna’s tender mercies. He behaves because of Cassandra, but she is also why he never can quite enjoy his new life. Vex catches him, eventually, in a moment where he seems to be truly happy for once - and a breath-taking sight that is, when he’s creating and thinking, beautifully vibrant and casually sharp-tongued - just before he catches himself out and remembers to be quietly miserable.
“Tell me what you’re thinking about when you do that,” Vex insists. “What is it that always makes you force yourself to look guilty for enjoying things.”
Percy tells her, in halting, almost forgotten and definitely avoidant sentences, about his home and the people who took it from him, about the sister he left behind and why he’s never on anything less than his best behavior. Because if word ever gets back that he isn’t, it will be on Cassandra’s head.
“Well,” Vex says, after she’s swallowed down the impulse to simply hold Percy as close and as tightly as she can. “Let’s go get Vax. If we have to go liberate our city, we’ll need him.”
“You don’t have to get involved,” Percy tries. “It’s my problem, not yours.”
“By law, it’s half mine,” Vex says, flippant in the way she knows gets across how serious she really is. “The problems and all. That’s marriage, darling.”
It’s the first time Percy says he loves her, so quietly any human wouldn’t have caught it, but luckily, Vex is half elf.

i dont actually follow overwatch but sometimes i think about symmetra having a hard time befriending people her own age because of her autism (like me) and she ends up great at connecting with kids

Oh my gosh, yarra, that’s such a friggin cute idea??

I can see one of things she’s really likes about children is how straight forward they are. Especially in the very competitive, corporate circles she tends to move in, interactions are very high stakes, tightly controlled, and nuanced. Satya has studied the communication for a long time – she probably spent more time memorizing facial expressions and tonal shifts than she ever did reading, which came easily to her. She’d get in trouble by the professors at the Academy for reading comics, thinking she was slacking, but the assigned classwork was too easy for her and she was actually using the stylized expressions in the comics to help her learn. So much is left unsaid during “grown up” conversations and she’s constantly on edge for that, so even when she’s not in a business sort of meeting she can find herself getting exhausted very easily. Making friends can be hard for a number of reasons, but definitely a prominent one is the fact that she feels like she can never let her guard down, can never fully trust them not to be secretly mocking or challenging her without her knowing. Even just being able to tell that someone wants to be her friend is baffling – more than once she has walked away from an interaction feeling mournful because she’d thought that person was quite enjoyable but sure that they weren’t interested in pursuing a friendship or relationship, while the other person is also feeling disappointed because apparently this charming intelligent woman wasn’t interested in them after all. Miscommunications are a bitch, and it’s a bitch Satya lives with all the time.

Children are so easy in comparison.  Satya never spent a lot of time with children growing up – she was taken from her family at a young age, and though she did see younger children in the Academy as she climbed through the ranks, she had little to do with them since they were in different classes and dorms than her and her more advanced classes. So the first time she was really forced to interact with a child she was very nervous – how are you supposed to take care of a child?? what if it cries?? do they talk the same, what if it wants to “play” with her?? she had no idea.

So she was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to understand this small human.  They were so emotive, and so honest about what they were thinking.  Satya found it unspeakably refreshing and enjoyable. (And she grows rather offended when people act like their child is inscrutable and bizarre, like an incomprehensible alien rather than a human with their own agency and thoughts – all you have to do is listen.)

And the children really adore her as well!  Satya treats them differently than a lot of adults – she treats them very seriously and honestly, she’s keen to share what she knows and is always happy to learn more – “I will correct my mistakes” is one of my favourite quotes of hers, she is willing to acknowledge when she’s wrong about something and improve. So often I see adults that refuse to admit they’re wrong and that the child who corrected them is right, like it’s somehow a hit on their pride for a ~kid~ to know something better than them, and it’s a really gross way to teach kids who are still excited about learning, it should be encouraged and Satya definitely does that. If the child knows more about a certain subject than her, you can bet your ass she will be interested and accepting of this new information.  And if the child wants to learn things from her?  She can engage them in the “but why” game for ages and honestly quite enjoy herself.  She’ll also sit and listen with absolutely sincerity when the children are talking about whatever they’re interested in… even if she doesn’t get it at all.  She so completely understands being so passionately and wholly in love with something and not being able to talk about it (even in Vishkar, people get glassy eyed and annoyed if she starts trying to talk too excitedly about the complex mechanics and theories of hard-light manipulation) that she will happily sit and let their words wash over her as they tell her about a game, a show, a friend, a toy, a school subject. (Children, she has discovered, tend to be remarkably well-versed in subjects like dinosaurs, space, locomotion, and horses. Fascinating. She had never known so much about construction vehicles before meeting children.)

She might not always understand when someone is subtly trying to signal that they’d like to get drinks with her, but she absolutely understands when a child walks up, takes her hand, and tells her that they want to draw with her.

She’ll draw intricate pictures of castles and pirate ships and towers and cities, with the sort of effortlessness that comes from years and years of training, and then give them to the children she’s with and let them populate the buildings with princesses and heroes and dragons and monsters and heroes and omnics and familes all drawn in crayon over her sharp, neatly inked lines.

Plus, how would a child not be amazed by a lady who can create toys with a wave of her hand?? And she loves seeing children exercising their creative abilities – if they can draw her a “blueprint” (she’ll explain how professionals draw pictures of what things should look like before they’re made) and describe it to her, she’ll make it for them. And if it doesn’t work, if it’s not strong enough to support itself, or won’t move properly, she shows them why it doesn’t work and lets the child try again.  Adults so often underestimate the joy children get by being confronted by puzzles and challenges when they aren’t being graded but Satya understands.

I can imagine one Vishkar dinner.  I sort of feel like Vishkar (the bastards) are always leery about bringing Satya to social functions because they never quite know what sort of impression she’ll make and Vishkar is not the sort of business that likes things to behave with anything less than strict regularity.  But Satya is their prodigy and the head architect of many projects, and it would seem unprofessional of them for her not to be present.  As it happens, Satya isn’t overly fond of these functions either because of the strain that level of noise and bustle put on her as well as the stress from so much socializing, but Vishkar doesn’t give a damn about that, so she learns to cope.

So this one dinner is meant to be a big one hosted by Vishkar during one of the holidays for all sorts of clients and potential clients. It was encouraged to bring family – wives, husbands, and children – because they’re trying to emphasize a sense of warmth and love and community – a sort of yeah we’re totally the good guys, big old wholesome family values sort of corporation, let us bring this into your city with our beautiful designs.  All bullshit, but pretty bullshit.  A beautiful lie.

Anyways, most of the children are mingling in a specific room, “out of the grown-ups’ way” and Satya ends up wandering that way when she feels like she’s about to drown in a sea of mixing, conflicting voices and the increasingly sharp clatter of crystal and silverware. There she finds the children, some interacting with each other, but mostly bored out of their minds, stuffed in tight, fancy clothes and deprived of all forms of entertainment. Their parents brought them for the “look” of things, but they know its all business and has nothing to do with them, they could be in a hotel room watching tv right now.  Satya gravitates into their room, feeling the former tension gradually slide off and the need to stim fade until it was only a background longing rather than a crushing need that must be suppressed before her supervisors and superiors see her.

At the end of the evening, a considerable time after her superiors began to realize it had been a while since they’d seen her around the cocktails, she was found with the children, the room in disarray. All the children are shrieking, laughing – playing.  All of them have little blue hard-light toys.  Satya is there in the middle of it all, finally looking at peace, showing a small group of particularly building-oriented children how to use a projected wire frame to create three-dimensional designs. (Which is everything she wants from an evening – childhood curiosity and ingenuity, her special interest, and the ability to subtly stim with hard-light without being caught out.)

The Vishkar executives are mortified.  To see one of their top agents acting in such a way is unspeakable. Never have they been so embarrassed.

And yet – and yet – Vishkar receives several rather hefty offers of work in the following days.  It seems a number of important executives were impressed by how happy the children were at the end of a long business evening, and were even more impressed by the intricacy of the toys they brought home.  If this level of craft can be achieved on the fly, we look forward to seeing more work done by you in the future, Vishkar is told.  Satya isn’t punished, and she remembers it as being one of the most enjoyable evenings she had had in a very long time.

(She’s still in contact with one of the little girls who had been so intrigued by the wireframe – Satya might recommend her as a candidate for the Academy if her interest holds, and it seems very likely it will.)

Yeah, I dunno, I’m having a lot of feelings about this now. Imagine once she joins Overwatch and after a mission they end up with a bunch of distressed, traumatized children while they try to relocate parents. Everyone’s scrambling, trying to figure out how to calm them down, look for Ana because, hey, she’s a mom, how do you child???? Only to find a moment later that Symmetra of all people has gotten right into the centre of the children’s cluster and they’re all… surprising… calmer. (Everyone on the team is Baffled because they’ve know Symmetra mostly as a very rigid, professional, and cold sort of person, and yet her she seems to be all gentleness and sweetness – they start to realize maybe there’s more to the Vishkar retainer than meets the eye.)  Or heck, even just let her meet Törbjorn’s mob of kids! Give Satya kids!!

and while we’re on the subject, let her meet this child again, give me that angst I need it

Camren EXPOSED

‘Camren is real!’ is the most commented thing under Camila Cabello’s and Lauren Jauregui’s posts on Twitter and Instagram. Tons and tons of video’s are made of Camila glancing at Lauren or vice versa. Video’s containing proofs of moments of the two girls barely interacting are shown as them having feelings for one another, moments of them laughing at one another etc, which btw is common in any friendship. But why has Camren, like Larry, been blown out of proportion, and why does it continue to be the number one thing on a Harmonizer’s mind when watching a video with the girls? Why, after countless times of shutting down the rumours, do Lauren and Camila still get shipped? 

Let’s start with one of the first iconic moments - 'the look’. For many harmonizers, this is the beginning of Camren. 

Let’s dissect this photo - At first glance, it does look pretty incriminating - they’re seems to be quite a bit of supposed sexual tension as they  look at one another’s lips and eyes. Or it could just be them looking at one another - because that’s what humans who are friends do? 

Here’s some other photo’s were Lauren and Camila can’t take their eyes off one another 

Now let’s have a look at a well known friendship - Serena and Blair from Gossip Girl - 

If we didn’t know who they were, Blair and Serena could look like your typical lesbian couple, could they not? But because we know their life story and the ins and outs of what goes on with them, we barely assume they’re in a relationship. Unlike Camren, we have 0 ideas of what goes on in their personal lives apart from what they show us. 

Now let’s look at how Blair and Serena LOOK at one another and compare it to the Camren Look 

Look at how both Blair and Serena look at one another - with love and care. Look at their hands, almost touching. Do we ever assume that they’re dating or have a crush on one another? No. We simply take it that they care about one another VERY deeply. Just as Camila and Lauren do. 

My next point is the hand touching and holding - 

OMG THEY’RE HANDS ARE TOUCHING, THEY MUST BE DATING. That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Agreed - they ARE touching/ holding hands- but does this mean that Camren is real? No. It’s just like Serena and Blair, who also continue to look each other + hold hands and touch one another, but in the least sexual way possible. 

Let’s continue to look at Blair and Serena who are bff goals - 

OMG  don’t they look like they’re dating one another? If I didn’t know that they were best friends I’d certainly think that they were together. Wouldn’t you? 

Let’s look at some iconic Camren selfies 

Just your average friendly selfies, much like Blair and Serena's 

So far - we have put down the staring and hand holding to the fact that they care deeply about one another and were/are really good friends. 

Now let’s look at their Twitter interactions - 

Yes, Lauren started the whole Camren thing BUT we are all aware of the fact that celebrities rarely if ever have control of their own social media - ESPECIALLY Twitter. So if I’m right, management planned these tweets OR it could simply be a way for them to express their friendship. The latter seems more true. 

Oh Dinah - Also played by management to fuel Camren rumours and give 5h more publicity 

Let’s not bring up the fact that so many other celebrities ship Camren - why? Because this is a moot point. Just because somebody ships something doesn’t make it exist nor make it come into existence.


But for those of you who are still convinced that Camren is real and that they’re dating, let us take a look at the technicalities behind their relationship. I for one think that Camren was public relations (PR) and their is a lot evidence pointing towards this idea. 

Let’s begin with the fact that Camila was JEALOUS of Lauren at one point - the evidence lies in her personal notes which were leaked from her phone; she wrote this a motivational thing for herself 

She says and I quote 'you were struggling with a terrible insecurity, made even more terrible by how jealous you were of L , like you were obsessively jealous and hated her.’ 

Why would Camila be jealous of Lauren? It doesn’t make sense - if they did have feelings for one another then surely Camila wouldn’t feel jealous of Lauren.. Hmm 

Look at this message from 2012, soon after 5h were first formed, Camila is chatting shit about all her band mates but is starting to like Lauren which suggests their FRIENDSHIP 

How about the fact that Camila dated Austin Mahone and Lauren dated Brad from The Vamps. Surely these weren’t staged? 

Well we definitely know that Camila and Austin weren’t staged because of Sinu’s (Camila’s mum) tweets to Hollywood life after they accused Camila and Austin to be dating only for album promotion: 

What about Shawn Mendes? Well, Camila and Shawn ALWAYS denied dating rumours, so the majority of their interactions were PR - 

This was all for PR to boost I Know What You Did Last Summer (I guess it worked) 

(texts from Camila discussing IKWYDLS) 

And then the incriminating texts between Micheal from 5SOS and Camila - you can read the full story about that here (this basically proves that Camren is FAKE because of Camila’s heterosexuality which is pretty evident). I know that she could be bisexual or even gay, but her interactions with male counterparts seem to suggest her avid interest in guys rather than girls.

Let’s not forget the many times that Lauren and Camila have denied Camren 

And the interviews where they denied Camren -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euPoSC-3CHo

And the biggest PR stunt of it all - The Vamp’s song 'I Found a girl’ which you can listen to here 

Now, let’s talk about who writes songs for bands in general - NOT the band members, but songwriters that the bands label and management choose. The actual band members have such little input about what they’re going to sing. Who wrote 'I Found A Girl’? Was it The Vamps? Nope, it was some singer/songwriter called James Blunt. 

The truth is - Camren isn’t real. That’s all there is to it. It was all for PR (to push forward sales and views) which worked. Look how dedicated Larry fans are to One Direction. 5h’s label & management obviously wanted something like that so that 5h would get big (which they did) 

Not to mention that it’s rumoured that Camila almost forced Lauren to post those initial #Camren selfies - no wonder Lauren always calls fans out for supporting Camren but Camila hardly ever does. 

Therefore, Camila also wanted a Larry type thing in 5h - look how she’s obsessed with Harry, almost as if she wants to be him 

You can believe what you wanna believe, after all - my evidence for Camren being fake is as good as your evidence for Camren being real. But let’s be realistic - Camren is staged AF. They might have a good friendship, but relationship wise, well, that’s non existent. But you can believe whatever you want to believe. 

That’s it for now! If you’d like to see more posts like this - please let me know :) What other topics should I expose or shed light on?
