I don’t think you can actually call them theories. More like some things I noticed and wanted to share.
Okay, so, we got a trailer for 2B and I watched it frame by frame (I also watched those two 10 seconds teasers again) and these are a few of the things I came up with.
PS: The bold parts are the “main theory” I have for what is going on on the picture.
First of all, based on the trailers/sneak peaks we got for 2A, the clips are (obviously) from different episodes, and because for 2A they used scenes from episodes 1 to 6, I think those scenes are from the episodes 11 to 16 (Paul Wesley directed 2x16 and they were in a lake/snowing location and we can see that same location on the trailer).
Now, to the things I noticed.
Right at the beginning we see some people, probably werewolves, holding Luke back. [Looks like they’re at the Hunter’s Moon.]
I think someone probably said something about Luke’s leadership and how he got half of his pack killed. I was thinking it could’ve been another werewolf that said that, but if that was the case they would be at the Jade Wolf and not at the Hunter’s Moon. A vampire maybe starts a fight?
Next we got this shot of Clary, Simon and Jace (in the back) on the middle of a forest. [The part of the location for 2x16 I was talking about.]
I think this is when they [and us] meet the Seelie Queen. I mean, why would they be at a place like that? Plus,
here looks like they’re looking down, searching for something. And here
looks like they’re waiting for something, or someone. Maybe someone to take them to the Seelie Queen?
After that we got this:
Alec, on the floor of what clearly is Magnus’ loft, with his bow and arrow. My question here is: why is he on the floor of Magnus’ loft with his bow and arrow??? Is someone going to break into Magnus’ and some kind of fight is going to happen?
Since we’re talking about Alec and Magnus…
And, like some of you already noticed, looks like the shirt he’s wearing here:
So, same episode I guess? [Alec is going to kiss this beautiful man with a beautiful red (?) eyeshadow and colored strikes in his hair. Alec is a lucky bastard.] ALSO, who is the person he’s talking to? I thought Izzy, but this pink shirt (?) doesn’t look like something she would wear. Maybe Dot? We know Vanessa was shooting a while ago. Or maybe - and please I hope I’m right - Catarina?
We also have this:
To be honest, I don’t care about the context of this. I just want to see them kick some ass together. Hope this is the case. [Also, looks like Alec is wearing the same jacket of the scene he’s on the floor, but then again, I feel like Alec only wears the same jacket, so…]
Badass Magnus is back! Looks like he’s putting some wards up at the Institute (? to me looks like the Institute). [He’s doing the same gesture he did in 2x08.]
And now two actual theories that have.
Izzy is going to be the first one to meet Sebastian.
- I’ve never seen you at the Institute.
- My name is Sebastian.
If I remember correctly, it was said that Sebastian’s first appearance would be in 2x11. Anyway, what I’m thinking is: for whatever reason he’s going to save/help Izzy from vampires. She’s going to have a relapse and go looking for some vampire venom and we all know how that went last time.
But our hero, the great guy, Sebastian will be walking by and save Izzy. He’s going to be like “Yeah, I’m a shadowhunter too. I was going to the New York Institute.” and Izzy will be like “Oh, I live there. I can take you.” and that’s how everyone will meet him. [Maybe not like that, but you get the point.]
And now for second actual theory. Luke is attacking someone [looks like Valentine.]
And, oh, look at that
Same clothes, which means, same episode. In this case I think even the same scene. I actually have a nice theory about this one. Luke is going to see Valentine escaping. Now, why I think that? First of all we can see the wall behind Luke are the walls from here
So, Luke will be visiting Valentine and the Circle will break into the institute [Maybe that’s why Magnus was putting some wards up?] and Luke will have to fight them [hence the sword on his hand, probably takes from a Circle member], but, after a lot of fighting, Valentine will escape anyway, because this is Shadowhunters we’re talking about. Shit like that happens all the time.
And that’s it for now my people. Thank you so much if you read all of this. lol We still have a long journey until 2B, so if more things are released I might add more stuff, maybe change others.
Dean’s climax and denouement in season 13. Expositions through season 1 mirrors.
So, I’ve talked loads about how I feel that season 13 is subverting the pilot plot wise:
- Mary is the parent who is lost to be found, John is the parent who is dead.
- The Sam/ Jess v Dean/Cas parallels of 12x23.
- The Sam/Dean role reversal (also the precise words Jared used *yay!*). Sam is the one set on hunting, finding a way to fix things, trying to keep things together, Dean is the one mourning the loss of the person he loves, out for revenge and angry.
Basically for Dean’s own personal story:
- Pilot: Dean is first set up as uber-straight, butch and over compensating, faithless, feeling like he can’t have and doesn’t really deserve love, a hunter of the supernatural and living in the black and white, stab first - ask questions later, where supernatural beings are all evil and to be killed, he is Sam’s parent and guardian and Dean is less worthy of love and care than he is, whose mother up on her pedestal said that Angels were watching over him, but he’s not accepting of himself, expecting to die young, giving up his life for others and with a total lack of self worth.
- Endgame: self worth, accepting himself for who he is as a whole, accepting that he likes things he has always repressed, that he is no longer Sam’s parent, that he needs to let Sam go, that he deserves good things for himself, that his mother and father are not perfect. That he is in love with a supernatural being, a guy, who represents faith, an Angel who watches overhim (and who he can watch over when he falls), having said Angel give up something big for him as a mirror for everything he has given up for others, learning that the world is not black and white, where he finally accepts himself and thinks he doesn’t deserve to die young, finally feeling self worth…
Regarding how I think this will play out in season 13:
We know now that 13x03 features Missouri Moseley. Who was a massive John mirror and was an exposition to why Dean is the way he is, repressed, self loathing and feeling worthless while Sam is to be protected and cared for. She and her granddaughter Patience are also psychics, a real coincidence given the point we will be at in 13x03 with Dean’s grief and emotions, hmmmmm.
We also know that we have the Scooby Doo episode where Dean potentially might flirt with or will at least come face to face with Daphne, the epitome of Dean’s old fantasies, the sweet, non threatening, childhood reminiscent kind of maternal reminding cartoon character, the best metaphor I can think of for Dean’s old facade and old way of dealing with things.
Basically everything we know so far, which is very little, about spoilers for season 13 point to the fact that they are absolutely using season 1 mirrors to show how much Dean has changed and grown, I mean throw in a couple of wendigos and ghosts, maybe, Chuck I hope for an episode where we see 2 brothers again like 1x18 but Dean doesn’t blame himself and tells the older brother to look out for himself and not always just his brother. I mean I don’t know how it will play out of course I just feel this as happening as a theme and hey if we do see Dean acting at times like a dude bro douche reminiscent of season 1 it’s probably exactly for this - to expose it and then smack it down because this ISN’T who he is and he knows that now, it’s just to show US.
off the top of my head (maybe I’ll meta properly about it at some point but right now I’m just flailing) but the themes in season 1 for Dean focus on:
- repression of emotions - lack of self worth and self acceptance - being Sam’s parent - toxic masculinity - bisexuality - not feeling he deserves love
And these should now be addressed in order to expose that he is moving past them and has come out the other side of his long path to self acceptance and they already seem to be using the pilot/season 1 both plot-wise but also thematically to expose these to then subvert them.
Also, while I was writing that post, an instrumental from Beauty and the Beast came on and made me think of Howard Ashman, for whom I have more feelings than I think anyone should strictly have for someone they’ve never met. He’s one of those celebrity losses I’ve never recovered from (Carrie Fisher is going to be another, I can tell). And it’s because he meant a lot to me.
In case you didn’t know, he wrote the music and lyrics for The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and parts of Aladdin along with Alan Menken. The longing to escape a world of oppression into a place that accepted you for who you truly were inside that you hear in those lyrics? “What would I give to live where you are / What would I pay to stay here beside you / What would I do to see you smiling at me / Where would we walk / Where would we run / If we could stay all day in the sun”? “And for once it might be grand to have someone understand / I want so much more than they’ve got planned”?
Those lyrics were written by a gay man with HIV/AIDS living in one of the most virulently homophobic eras of our time. It’s hard to imagine if you haven’t lived in the kind of meanness and cruelty that was commonplace at the time (and is still common in some areas of the country/world). It’s hard to imagine if you aren’t, yourself, queer. But you can hear the longing in those lines. It’s why both of those movies have come to mean something more to me in recent years, being able to look back and see the inherent queerness in the narrative, even if the characters weren’t themselves queer.
He found out he had HIV/AIDS toward the end of The Little Mermaid, became very, very sick during Beauty and the Beast, and died right before the final version of the film was released. But while they were working on BATB, when he’d just found out he had AIDS, back when it was an unequivocal death sentence, he went to Walt Disney World with a friend. WDW had a parade celebrating the release of The Little Mermaid, as they do, and he started crying watching the parade because he looked around and he saw children in love with Ariel, in love with the songs she was singing, the music he wrote, and he said he knew that even though he was going to die, his music was going to live on and mean something to people.
idk, it’s hard to remember that even as recently as 2010, which is when I was writing gay romance, it was almost impossible to imagine the world we live in now. And I’m not talking about “now” when Mike Pence and his ilk are trying to make us afraid to be ourselves again, when conservatives are fighting for the right to discriminate against us. I’m talking about the now when they have to try to do these things, when they have to fight to get away with it. because dude, when I was growing up, that was just how things were.
I think about if Howard Ashman could see how far we’ve come. I hope that somehow he knows. And I swear to God we’re never going back.
BEING JELOUS BECAUSE YOU RUN INTO A CHILDHOOD FRIEND
(Requested, sorry for typos, GIF’s not mine and in random order. Also sorry for taking so long I’m trying to write everyday, but school stress you know. I’m acually writing this at midnight, so you guys can read it today :))
You guys would be like shopping because he got dat sweet money okok jk and you run into a guy you used to be best friends with.
He starts complimenting you about how nice you’ve grown, but when he says how hot you are then Suho hops in.
Suho would handle it sm00thly like a sm00thie, being a nice guy and not starting any trouble. He would just put his hand on your shoulder and be like: “Hello, I’m Suho, Y/N’s boyfriend. I don’t think we’ve met before.”
If he still would not back up, he would talk to him politely.
You ran into your childhood friend in the street. Him and Baek just stare at each other like “who tf is this Y/N??”
Your childhood friend looks at you and starts saying compliments and Baekhyun is even more confused like “who is this person??”
He gets jelous pretty fast and comes in to the convo like “Yes, I agree that Y/N is really a pretty person, now we must get going, bye! And I hope we never see each other again!”
You would ask Baekhyun what is up with him and he would just play like nothing happend.
“What do you mean? I WAS BEING NICE. He was kinda flirty. TOO flirty. No, I’m not jelous!”
You two were eating and your old friend came to you like “OH MY GOD Y/N IT’S BEEN SO LONG! You look super hot these days I see.”
Kai was confused, at first he wouldn’t even be jelous, but when the “friend” starts to acually flirt he would just throw in something like: “She is in a relationship already!” And the dude would probably back off.
He would have an honest talk with you about what went over the line and tell you what bothered him.
You would have met your childhood friend when you were shopping and Kyungsoo would instantly get triggered by his flirty compliments.
Satan mode on.
He would just come up to you and give him his Satan death stare and you would be like:“You okay?” And he would fakely answer: “Yes, of course why would I not be?”
Later when he was gone he would start to ask you questions like: “Did he make you uncomfortable?”
Omg this GIF is perfect
You ran to your childhood when you were walking home and you two started talking.
Chanyeol wouldn’t probably even get jelous, because he trusts you and knows that your friend is speaking the truth when he says that you’re pretty.
If he noticed that it made you uncomfortable, then he would step in and just tell him to back off and he probably would because he’s a giant.
When you had ran to a childhood friend he was triggered. Not only was he making flirty comments, but he had interrupted you two.
He was in full jelous diva mode and started by saying “Isn’t it kinda rude to say that when Y/N is in a relationship? Like excuse me? I’m sorry but we are leaving. You can call her if you want.”
I quickly walk out of
the front door of my building, instantly feeling the warm July breeze in
Toronto. I start jogging two blocks down the street to Mitch’s building.
Looking here first since he’s one of the only two people I have told about our
relationship. He was also the first to know so Y/N has known him longer.
Thank you for the prompt! This probably isn’t exactly what you had in mind, but I hope
you like it! (On AO3)
Stiles has a long history of hanging out in this hospital.
He’d practically lived in the waiting room when Lydia had gotten very sick
sophomore year, with Jackson right beside him, pretending he wasn’t scared. And
he’d been there pretty often junior year, when Danny had his appendix removed,
followed by the time his dad had been stabbed on the job.
So being here now is practically routine to Stiles.
Everything is almost comfortingly familiar, from the terrible cafeteria food to
the pervasive antiseptic smell.
prompt: boy squad playing the floor is lava and Even being his usual extra self climbing in the most ridiculous places
skjdskdjskdj I LOVE THIS PROMPT!!! i took the liberty of forming it into them playing true american - and now im so hyped to play it soon with my friends hahaaaa - the rules are the ones we play it with i hope you like <3
It started out as one of the most normal pregames. They all planned to
go to some party with Eskild and Eva later and the boys were at Isak’s and Even’s
and had brought a lot of beer (even though Isak now was a bit offended because
he finally was able to do that officially and wanted to do it but then again,
he knew he would never see the money of those dudes before the year was over).
So, after they all settled in their usual pregame at Evak’s places (Mahdi,
Isak and Magnus at the little table, Even and Jonas on pillows on the floor,
their backs against the bed), they somehow got to the point where Magnus asked “Did
anyone of you shotgun before?”.
This resulted in Isak’s head whipping around as he shot a warning look
towards Even who grinned in his beer and raised his brows innocently as if to
say what? And Jonas to ask, “What you mean with weed?” at which Isak relaxed
“No, what? No, I meant shotgunning a beer.” Mags explained and Mahdi nodded. “Yeah,
you mean where you put the pencil in it and then open it.” Mags nodded and
pointed a finger at Mahdi gesturing his agreement.
“Yes! Exactly! You ever done that before, Mahdi?” Magnus voice was excited
(when was it not, though?) as he asked that. Mahdi shook his head.
“No, man. I just know it from this show, New Girl.”
“Oh, I love that show!” Came Even’s voice (the moment he didn’t have
something to say about shows or movies was yet to come), Isak rolled his eyes. “You
mean this ridiculous game they play there?”
So, this is how they ended up playing True American. Of course they googled the
rules which let them to find, there are indeed no real rules to the game. At
one point Mahdi held his phone in the air and signaled them to all stop
“Ok, ok. Let’s just make up our own rules. We have five stations where
each of us starts out and three obstacles between those and whatever you can
find but you have to move on. Just whoever’s turn it is asks a question and we
have to write it down and whoever is wrong needs to move forward. When you’re
at the next station you need to take another beer and you can’t have more than
two beers in your hand which means you need to chug if it comes to that. Oh,
and the floor is lava, obviously.”
“Obviously.” Jonas replies and exchanged a grinning but eyerolling look
with Isak. But Isak’s face morphed into pure fondness when he heard an excited
giggle come from Even who rubbed his hands together and bounced bounced bounced
up and down.
So, they placed the table in the middle and put the beer on it and after
that decided on official obstacles in the tiny flat (pillows, chairs, duvet,
the bed, basically everything was ok except from the tv stand and the table as
they all agreed).
Isak and Mahdi took place on chairs, Magnus was on a pillow, Jonas on
the bed and Even was sitting on a sideboard (this obstacle took the longest to
convince the boys of as official).
“Haha! Awesome!” Magnus exclaimed as Isak had all handed them pencils
and they took their positions.
“What exactly happens now again?” Asked Jonas – they’ve gone over it at
least three times already, so he was met with a lot of groans. Jonas lifted his
arms to gesture sorry! And rolled his eyes again.
“We shotgun the beer.” Said isak, wiggling the can he was holding
towards Jonas and Even added “Mags counts down from four to one and shouts JFK
and we answer with FDR. First to finish their beer is the one that starts the
Magnus lighted up (even more) at that and clapped his hands together. “I
get to shout JFK?” he looked so happy that all the boys just smiled and nodded.
“Awesome! Ok! Ready?” Again, all of nodded after they took position, pencil in
“Four, three, two, one, JFK!” dutifully the other answered with shouting “FRD!”
and rammed their pencils in the beer. Mags, Isak and Mahdi got it right (which
means they turned the beer can around before they hit the pencil in) but Even
and Jonas didn’t which means before they could put their mouths on the can they
were splashed with beer. (They may or may not have screeched while this
happened, which may or may not resulted in Mahdi choking on his beer because he
was laughing so hard.)
The game was basically a mixture of the best friend game and childhood
memories of the floor is lava and their faces were soon red from laughing and
when Jonas almost slipped on a pillow and caught himself with a hand on the
floor. Isak, Mahdi and Mags all made “HGM!” sounds – all had their mouths full
with beer – and pointed at him. While Even shrugged and said “Guess your hand
“What?” He asked disbelievingly.
“Just don’t use it anymore.” Isak put in and Jonas shook his head with a
“But I’m holding two beers and need to climb on stuff!”
Mags turned to
look at a spot in the middle as if he was in an episode of the office and said:
“And that kids, is why you shouldn’t touch molten hot lave.”
Which they all complained about was the ridiculous of obstacles Even
found. He had the longest legs by a mile (“literally!” as Mags yelled) and
could easily go from one station to the other and found safe places everywhere.
Isak got nervous every time he chose something where it looked like he could
fall like a windowsill and they all pleaded the case to exclude the ‘if you
find a safe place you’re good’ rule after Even managed to balance on a freaking
pot with the plant Liv got them (Isak lifted a finger in warning bc it was his birthday
plant ok?? Don’t you hurt it, Even!).
The questions were mostly harmless: what’s your favourite breakfast food
(which got them a revival of the pancakes vs. waffles discussion), longest
relationship, favourite spice (at which both Isak and Even grinned and Isak
exclaimed KARDEMOMME! Which had him drink 3 punishment sips because well now he
already said it), what’s the thing you always have with you and so on.
Then of course there were the not so harmless questions: wildest
position you ever tried, where was your most awkward/badly timed boner in
public (“In English, all Isak’s fault” – “Whatttt??”), best blow job of your
life, who took your virginity (when Even answered that with both Isak and Sonja
you bet’cha that Isak – because he had a lot of beer and after a few he didn’t
blush so easily anymore – looked smug and received high fives from Mahdi and
Jonas (which was almost impossible from their different stations) and Magnus
lifted both arms in the air and exclaimed “I finally have an answer!” before
Even winked (attempted, he attempted to wink) and said “Are you sure?” Which
left Magnus confused and Isak laughing.
So, when they finally made their way to meet up with Eskild and Eva,
they were long passed tipsy and more than on the way to drunk. Mahdi walked in
the middle of Mags and Jonas, an arm around both of them and told them over and
over that he loved them both to pieces. Mags gushed about Vilde with a dreamy
look on his face and Jonas nodded and agreed but at the same time was in the
middle of a completely different monologue about capitalism.
Isak and Even were so tangled in one another that it was actually a
miracle that they could even move. Both just nuzzled and hugged and gave each
other sloppy, sticky kisses.
(Eskild and Eva were no different so all was good - It. was. fun.)
Justin is a junior in high school. He knows exactly three things about his soulmate. One, she’s around his age. Two, she’s definitely American. Three, she has a thing for musical theater.
Ever since puberty. Everybody stares at me. Boys, girls. I can’t help it baby.
Justin, or Ranser as his hockey team knew him, sighs. He’s knee-deep in a practice SAT test. He knows his soulmate is American, so that’s where he’s planning to go for university. Even if they don’t end up at the same school, it’ll be exponentially easier to find her if they don’t have an international border between them.
So be kind. And don’t lose your mind. Just remember. That I’m your baby.
“Allow me to kiss your hand, be your man,” Ranser interrupts. “You know, I’ll understand…You see where I’m from, WC, I’m from Nigeria,” he murmurs. “Omo, you know say na criteria.”
Justin doesn’t know what skipping ahead in a song does to the music inside his soulmate’s mind. But he’s not one for singing,really. He finds the songs that suit his message and sticks lyric-less songs otherwise. Many reactionary music genres nowadays were mainly instrumental to resist the idea of finding soulmates through consumerism. It’s not that he didn’t care about his soulmate. But it’s one less thing to worry about if he has separate music for communicating with her and for enjoying for himself. Afrobeat has been particularly effective in balancing out her more…exuberant tunes.
He can’t fault her for her love of Lady Gaga, but priorities take precedent over fun time. As if she understands his protests, the music dies down. Justin takes a deep breath, resuming his test. He can only hope she doesn’t do this during the real exam time. Although most administrators were understanding, it was a three strikes policy for singing during an exam.
If there’s one thing Justin’s learned about his soulmate, it’s that she sung everything she felt.
“What if I got a double major in music and economics?” Adam, or Birker, asks his teammate, Hobbs, one movie night his last year in Juniors.
Hobbs eyes him incredulously. “Why?”
Adam shrugs, “my soulmate listens to a lot of cool music.”
“So? Fucking congrats,” he snarks.
“No man, it’s like,” Adam gestures with two hands at the space in front of the coffee table. “Most of the stuff they like isn’t pop and doesn’t even have lyrics. Which fucking sucked when we were younger, right?”
“Sure,” he concedes.
“I learned how to play the piano and some other instruments so I could figure out what songs they were — and now I have all this musical knowledge that I won’t be able to use ever again.”
“Because…” Hobbs prompts.
“Because when I find them, what the fuck do I need to know this shit for anymore? If they like something, they can just show it to me.”
Hobbs rolls his eyes, “be a music major. Become a fucking teacher why don’t you?”
“You think I could handle that?” Adam inquires seriously.
“I think your other option is to get famous writing music, and fat chance of that ever happening,” Hobbs chirps.
“Thanks, you’re helpful,” Birker rolls his eyes dramatically.
“I don’t get why you’re going to college anyway,” Hobbs jabs him in the ribs.
“I’m not doing the draft, bro,” Adam reminds him curtly.
“Oh c’mon,” Hobbs eggs him on, “what’s the worst that could happen?”
“I miss my chance to meet my soulmate in college, I spend four years in fucking Syracuse before I get called up. I retire at 32 if I’m lucky with no degree or skills.”
“Except music,” Hobbs chirps.
“Except music,” Adam parrots.
Brownie comes back with a bowl full of popcorn and a bag of Twizzlers. “What’d I miss?”
“Birker’s whinning about his soulmate again,” Hobbs replies.
“What else is new,” Calvin shouts from the kitchen.
“Can we start the fucking show already?” Adam shouts back.
“Yeah,” Calvin comes running in, hopping onto the first body he sees (Adam).
Adam frowns when Calvin won’t get off his lap. “I really hate you sometimes.”
“Taking your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot,” the four boys chorus.
“Man, I hope for your sake she’s funny,” Brownie tells Birker.
Adam laughs hollowly. He’s very convinced that his soulmate’s a dude. Which is fine, Adam’s as bi as the day is long. The way Calvin looks back at him pointedly, reinforces his suspicions that he’s not the only queer guy on the team.
Which is exactly why he’s going to Samwell. It was one of the queerest schools in the country. He had no assurance that his soulmate will find him there. But at the very least, he can have four years away from the quite chaos of hockey. The NHL was still ignoring the fact that a good third (or more) of their players weren’t straight. The press was constantly writing soulmates off as “platonic”, and Adam was not about to put up with that any time soon. He wanted to go to school, do something he loves, and fall in love. Why was that too much to ask for?
week on Wynonna Earp, everything was super fine, there were no creepy
dolls or paintings from right out of my nightmares, and all the
girlfriends in Purgatory recognized what an amazing, special thing
they have together, laying to rest their current conflict before
anyone could do anything impulsive and ill-advised…J/K, this week
was feelings hell.
So, I feel a bit in the dog house because I didn’t post a Washboard Wednesday last week. I got behind the eight-ball with some work projects. But rest assured, this Wednesday is already in process.
Who else is excited for the finale this week? Last weeks positive Olicity vibes were just the right note I needed to feel like next season will find things right with the world again (even if there are a few more bumps in the road). I cannot wait to see how things sort out with Adrian Chase. Lots of opportunity for epic feels in terms of symmetry with the pilot. I have speculated in another post with respect to how I think things could end up, if the writers don’t want to let me down, that is!
Let’s get busy with some face, shall we? Because Oliver Queen looked as scrumptious as his birthday cake last week.
First, this gorgeous smile appeared because he might have a date.
Oh, the pillow mountains and the leather jacket and the hair and the eyes…
Another smile because he was adoring at that moment.
Some badass black and white sexiness here.
Someone else has commented on this pose. Oliver Queen, after everything he has been through, clasping his heart at this moment is a fascinating move that I hope gets asked about at a future HVFF panel. Is he relieved because he thought something happened to Felicity up until then? What he surprised by her appearance pointing a gun? Or is this a reference to the flashback in some way - to Kovar sticking a needle into that very spot? I am dying to know. In any case…the man is beautiful, the jacket is HOT.
Okay, I am working on my gifmaking capabilities again. Here’s an early experiment because I adore that smile we see so rarely from Oliver Queen. I’ll keep at it!
Dimple. Fucking dimple. And eyelashes. Gaah.
And there we have it, gorgeous people! This dude had one handsome birthday. I hope this sets your week off on the right foot! Lots more pretty to come.
i havent drawn in a while, mainly because my deteriorating mental health has been weighing me down along with a break up and pressure to succeed in exams but this punk dan made a video on depression and his experiences and since i can relate alot to this dude it kinda kick started my engine again and although im still a self loathing mush sack on legs i had a shower today, i ate some dinner and i had the energy to draw, something i havent had in a long time, i just hope this isnt short term and actually long lasting determination.. we will see.
So as you guys know, mybeautiful perfect adorable girlfriend is in fact trans. Well sometime around 2 months ago, I was talking to my friend. He asked me how my girlfriend was, except he didn’t know (he hadn’t talked to her in a year or two) that she was trans. I calmly said that her name was not the one he was using anymore and that she was transitioning to female. He was cool with that, obviously, because I’m a trans guy and have been open to my close friends about that for several years. But here’s what got me. I showed him pictures of her and I that we had taken the weekend before… and he just got really creepy. He started talking about how he “has always been turned on my girls with dicks” (mind you he knew we were together at the time) and that he “has always wanted to f**k her anyways”. I laughed it off because I thought he was maybe joking, but then went on to gush about the photos and talk about if she owned butt plugs (I know, what the heck?). At this point I started getting visibly upset, telling him to please stop talking about her in this context and that she was my girlfriend. He told me “sorry, I’m just into traps” which made it even worse because she’s not a “trap” shes a beautiful kind funny girl and I was just incredibly uncomfortable at this point. Now you’d think he’d stop? I did too. Later that day I find out that he’s been messaging her (because she told me he was being weird), and the same guy starts talking about “do you own buttplugs” and “you’re so gorgeous” and “we should be friends with benefits”. So she comes back to me, let’s name her for the sake of ease, Alice. Alice comes to me and tells me about this, so I go back and tell the guy to stop, and some other stuff along the lines “I told you we were dating so why are you flirting with her? I thought we were friends.” and this guy starts crying and just dude you have no reason to feel bad you litterally just tried to coax my girlfriend into having sex with you. And he’s like “I hope we can be friends” but yeah no that’s not happening.
Basically what I’m trying to say- this guy didn’t see her as my “girlfriend” or even a “girl” at all. He saw Alice as a fetish or a “trap” and didn’t understand that it wasn’t appropriate to treat her or I like that. It just made me realize how gross a lot of people are. Again transwomen are godesses. How do you guys do it.
Hello everyone~~ I thought I’d make a lil post now that this blog is a year old (actually a year and three months…) As you all know I’m incredibly indecisive and I’ve changed this blog so much over the past year so thank you for sticking around <333 I’m now finally comfortable and happy with the blog and stress free since there’s no weight on my shoulders to post any fics. Thank you all again for the love, even if it’s just a little visit to my page or a like here and there. It means so much <333
I send love to all my beautiful mutuals and all of ya’ll that follow, LOVE YOU I can’t explain in words how grateful I am <3333
Today I met @markiplier the great heartwarming goofball himself! He was very sweet for the short bit we chatted. I gave him a picture, he signed a note for a friend, and he hugged me! I also told him I loved the improv stuff the group did and he seemed genuinely appreciative!
I also met @lordminion again and we chatted some more. He’s a really cool dude and I really hope I get to see him again!!
And finally I met Tyler! He’s also pretty cool as well and I’ll upload a picture with him very soon! He signed my badge too!
These three men are really wonderful and I’m so glad I got to meet them! This PAX has been great and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. :)
Any chance Daryl dies this season? I used to be a fan, but ever since I found out that Norman Reedus is a disgusting piece of shit I hope Daryl dies a horrible death so we don't have to see Norman on our screens again.
Dayum, nonny. You brought the shade today! Did Norman kick your puppy? Did he come over and piss in your bowl of Cheerios? I’m fascinated by whatever he did to get your panties so twisted. He seems like a pretty decent dude to me. Did I miss something? Anyways, there’s no sign of Daryl dying this season. Better luck next time?
I have that feeling that Caleb wont be a permanent villain because of many reasons that may or may not make sense (probably the latter cos its me saying them obvs)
-We already have that rock guy and Silas who is super shady I guess they’re the real trouble in the book.
-Caleb literally is like a teenager who is going through his rebellious phase his motivation is literally hating the system if that doesnt scream rebel then idk what does. And I hate that I relate to him but I do (jk the government is the best thing ever) (dont come for me illuminati)
-Anyway he doesnt seem threatening enough so there is a chance Kenji and Mc will kick his butt and we will never see him again or he will join us I am not sure.
-Man of fire is like the most basic name ever dude.
-Anyway I dont think he will be as much of a trouble as Shrapnel and Silas are.
-idek what is this post anymore.
-But I really like Caleb and I hope he will join our side because that hair shouldnt go to waste #dontjudgemepls
-Totally unrelated but Kenji is the coolest motherfucker I have ever seen.
(wc: 1.5k. sorta sequel to this. michael teaches jeremy more filipino, listens to music, and has a bad day but it’s okay. sappy fluff. pining. oh god pining. bye.)
Michael doesn’t really have a taste music so much as erratic collection of songs and albums he just so happened to get obsessed with. His phone on shuffle has been described as an experience. There was the one week where only soundtracks of 1st gen and 2nd gen Pokemon blasted from his headphones. For three days he only listened Dreams by Fleetwood Mac over and over again. There was Electroswing Saturday, which lasted for a solid month. Last time he and Jeremy got stoned, Michael cried to the lyrics of MacArthur Park.
(“He left the cake out in the rain, dude,” Michael says, high off his bat and overcome with so many emotions he can’t name a single one. “It took so long to make it, Jeremy.”
“I know, it’s okay,” Jeremy pats his head, giggling. Richard Harris croons in the background on tinny speakers. “Shit happens.”
“It took so long the bake it, Jeremy.”
“And he’ll never get that recipe again!” He says over Jeremy’s cackles.)
Today, he finds himself in music limbo, clicking aimlessly on Spotify like a desert wanderer looking for an oasis of kicking jams. After maybe an twenty minutes of impatiently skipping past every random song that didn’t catch his attention, he finally stops on a song.
