i love how both fandoms are freaking out over this scene

Mila and Yuri’s friendship appreciation post

Ok the fandom has all agreed that Mila is Yuri’s big sister, but can we just take a moment to appreciate just how DEEP the bond is? 

Ok. So first of all, we have Mila initiating physical contact with one of the coldest characters in YOI. She is extremely familiar with Yuri and from her relaxed air, we can assume that this definitely isn’t her first time hugging Yuri. It’s also interesting to note that Yuri only tells her to let go when Mila starts to tease Yuri. Yuri didn’t initially object to Mila’s hug!  

Here we have Yuri being a brat. But a very well-informed brat. Mila’s, cough, sexual frustrations would’ve been the result of a very recent breakup. The fact that Yuri knew about this shows us that he is up-to-date about what is happening in Mila’s life. Mila probably overshares the intimate details about her relationships to Yuri.

InterdictedKai’s Guide To Writing Trans Men Having Sex

I wrote this up in response to another post but it really should have its own post here on my blog. The topic? Sex scenes involving trans guys, how to write them, and how not to write them.

There’s been a lot of trans male headcanons popping up in fandoms lately. And that’s awesome! As a trans guy myself, I love seeing trans headcanons by both cis and trans people! And there’s been a lot of fics & art involving trans dudes having sex popping up lately. And that’s awesome too! Hell yeah we can get down and do the do! Unfortunately… many of these headcanons, art pieces, & fics don’t portray trans guys, their bodies, and their sex lives accurately. And that’s… not so awesome. There’s some pretty icky stereotypes and commonalities going around. So I’m here to shed a little light on trans men and how we get down.

First, I’d like to start by saying this content is of a mature nature, please exercise reader discretion before deciding to read it and follow your local laws & restrictions regarding such content.

Second, I’d like to note that my ask box is always open to questions if anybody wants to fact-check their trans fic with an actual trans dude. I’m more than willing to help educate.

Now, on to the lesson!

InterdictedKai’s Guide To Writing Trans Men Having Sex:

  • SEXUAL ORIENTATION: Trans guys come in all sexual orientations.
    • If a trans man is having sex with a man, whether that man is cis or trans, that is gay sex. They’re both men. Having gay sex.
    • If a trans man is having sex with a woman, whether that woman is cis or trans, that is straight sex. It’s a man and a woman. That’s straight sex.
    • Trans guys can most often be found fucking: gay men, bi/pan men, straight women, & bi/pan women. In other words: People who are attracted to men.

  • TERMINOLOGY: My number one issue with people who aren’t trans guys (eg: cis, nb, etc) writing about trans guys having sex is the words they use. Topping the chart: CALL IT A DICK, NOT A CLIT. Seriously.
    • Up top: The most standard term for talking about a trans guy’s chest is ‘chest’. A lot of pre-op & no-op trans guys are really not okay with having the lumps on their chest called ‘breasts’. So if you’re writing about trans men getting some action on their torso, you’re better off talking about his chest and nipples than his breasts and nipples. 
    • The pole: It’s a dick. It might be a small dick but almost universally every trans guy I’ve met calls it a dick or cock and either dislikes or is actively squicked by it being called a clit. I’ve had so many conversations with other trans guys where we salt about seeing cis people writing trans guys in fic & calling it a clit. Sure, there are exceptions, trans guys who use the word clit, but there’s also gay men who use the f-slur to describe themselves. That’s a personal use. It’s not the standard. It’s not the common term. It’s not okay if you’re someone who isn’t a trans dude writing about a trans dude having sex. It doesn’t matter if you’re cis, nb, or any other identity, call it a dick. It’s a dick. Call it a dick. It doesn’t matter if they’re pre-T, on T, or if they’ve had some sort of genital surgery. It’s a dick any which way. He is a man. He has a penis.
    • The hole: There is no standard term for what a trans guy is probably gonna call the hole he’s got in front. I know guys using: Cunt, vagina, pussy, front hole, front door, boy hole, bonus hole, and so on. Personally, I like cunt, it’s gritty and abrasive and feels the most ‘masculine’ to me personally. That said, whatever term you use, try to be respectful in using it and understand that not all trans guys want sex to involve that body part.

  • TO REPEAT: DO NOT CALL A TRANS DUDE’S DICK A CLIT.

  • COMING OUT: Coming out as trans is usually scary. Coming out as trans can be dangerous.
    • Trans guys who pass, meaning they are perceived as men by people they meet, will at some point have to come out to romantic and/or sexual partner(s).
    • Usually these conversations will take place well before anything gets hot and heavy but sometimes things get a little carried out of hand and things need to pause so they can talk.
    • The last place most trans guys want to be when disclosing they’re trans is in the bedroom with someone’s hand down their pants as an “oh, by the way”. There have been many of cases of trans guys getting attacked in these situations if their partner freaks out over it. General rule? Don’t write your coming out scene as happening in the bedroom.

  • BODY BOUNDARIES: Trans people in general have a different relationship to their body from cis people by virtue of being trans. So since we’re focused on trans guys, let’s get into that.
    • Not all trans guys have sex the same way. Not all trans guys are okay with using some or all of the body parts they have during sex. We each have different body boundaries.
    • I know guys who won’t get shirtless, guys who won’t take off their binder, and guys who strip shirtless without worry. I know guys who don’t want their chest touched and guys who are really into receiving nipple play.
    • I know guys who love getting blowjobs and guys who don’t want a mouth down there.
    • I know guys who don’t want their cunt touched, guys who are okay with only fingers in there, and guys who are all about taking things in the front door.
    • I know guys who don’t want any penetrative sex, guys who don’t care where you put it, guys who only want it in the front, guys who don’t want anything in their ass, and guys who are fine as long as it’s only going in their ass.
    • I know guys who exclusively top, never bottom, and have gorgeous collections of strap-ons to fuck their partner(s). Yes, that’s right, trans men can top!
    • These are just some examples and there’s no standard. Every trans man will have different body boundaries that they need to discuss with their partner(s).

  • BODY CHANGES: The body changes a lot on testosterone. So let’s get into some of those changes.
    • CHEST: Chest fat does lessen on testosterone, but not usually by much. That said, they do become a lot more limp due to binding over the years. Binding makes breast tissue basically wilt, break down, and go floppy. If a trans guy binds, his chest fat will become more limp over time. Easier to compress flatter, but also deteriorates skin quality for future surgery.
    • BODY HAIR: Holy hairy nipples, batman! Trans guys often get chest hair, just like cis guys. I’ve never once seen a fic talk about a trans guy’s chest hair. Trans guys also get happy trails, facial hair, thicker hair on our legs and arms, etc, and generally develop average male body & facial hair patterns. 
    • DICK: This is one of the most noticeable changes on T, and also the fastest. Most guys begin to notice their dick starting to grow within a few weeks of starting T. Most grow to around 1″-2″ when erect. There are many cases of guys getting as much as 3″ but these should be considered outliers and not average. It’s the trans dude equivalent of a cis dude with a 10″ dick: possible but uncommon. Wait, erect? Yep! It gets erect. You can definitely see when a trans guy has a boner if you’re looking at his dick! You can also notice that it has a foreskin just like an uncut penis! The labia may also become more coarse and similar in texture to a cis guy’s balls.
    • FLUIDS: Not all trans guys get dry downstairs on T. Some do. But I know a lot of guys who’ve gotten a lot more wet since starting T. It happens a lot. It’s a 50/50 shot, really. Bodies are weird. There are some sloppy, messy, slick trans guys and some trans guys who have to use lube daily so they don’t chafe or even use an estrogen cream down there.
    • SMELL: On Testosterone, the smell of a trans guy’s junk changes. You get Man Musk within the first 6 months. Anyone who’s been near a cis guy’s dick knows what I mean by that: that really sharp, earthy dick smell.
    • TASTE: After about 6-8 months on testosterone, a trans guy’s fluids down there stop tasting like going down on a cis girl and they start tasting a hell of a lot more like a cis dude’s precum. It’s a hormone thing. So giving a trans dude who’s been on T for a while a blowjob is gonna smell & taste a lot more like blowing a guy with a really leaky dick than going down on a girl. Cause that’s exactly what’s going on. 
    • ORGASMS: Orgasms also change on testosterone. Guys who could previously get multiple orgasms pre-T often can’t once they start testosterone. But they do usually report them being stronger and more intense

  • HAVING SEX: Trans men definitely don’t have sex like cis women. Because they’re not cis women. They’re men. They’re just men with a slightly different tool set in their tool belt.
    • Like I said under Body Boundaries, we use our bodies to have sex in many varied ways. Blowjobs, handjobs, rimming, vaginal fingering, anal fingering, vaginal sex, anal sex, I could go on for ages.
    • If a trans guy is taking a cis dude’s dick in his cunt, it’s still gay sex, not straight sex, and needs to be treated as such.

  • SAFER SEX & PREGNANCY:
    • Trans guys can get STDs like any other guy and should use condoms accordingly. Trans guys having risky or unprotected sex with cis men may be prescribed PrEP, an HIV-prevention medication designed to lower the risk of contracting HIV. 
    • Speaking of STDs, people can get gonorrhoea & chlamydia in their ass or throat via anal & oral sex. This will not show on a standard pee test. There are special swabs for the ass and throat. Most doctors do not routinely perform these tests. They really should. But, back to the point.
    • Some people think trans men can’t get pregnant. This is a myth. Some men think trans men can’t be on birth control. This is a myth. These myths are dangerous.
    • Trans men who are having sex with cis men can get pregnant unless they’ve had a hysterectomy. The risk of pregnancy is decreased but not eliminated by T.
    • Trans men on T cannot get estrogen-based birth control but they can be on progesterone-only birth control. Most large trans-affirming health clinics will recommend this for trans men who have sex with cis men. Generally, this comes in two forms: a daily pill known as the ‘minipill’ or a 12-week injection known as the ‘depo shot’.

  • MEDICAL PROCEDURES: There are many routes trans guys can take in terms of medically transitioning.
    • For most trans people, the first step is hormone replacement therapy (HRT). For trans guys, this involves Testosterone therapy. Testosterone is usually administered via injection every 1, 2, or 12 weeks, depending on which kind, or via a daily cream/gel. 1 & 2 week shots are self-administered while 12-week shots are done by a professional. Trans guys who come out as kids or young teens may be prescribed hormone blockers to prevent or halt puberty until they can start T when they’re 15-18 (age varies with local laws & doctor’s discretion).
    • Another step for trans guys is usually top surgery. Guys with tiny chests (small B or less) can get periareolar (’peri’) or keyhole surgery. This leaves only a tiny scar around the nipple. Guys with larger chests usually get a double incision (’DI’) surgery which involves larger scars along the bottom of the pecs and nipple grafts or, less commonly, an Inverted-T or T-anchor surgery which involves the same scars under the pecs but an additional vertical scar from there to the nipple while eliminating the need for nipple grafts.
    • Trans guys usually get a total hysterectomy, removing the uterus, ovaries, cervix, and all the bits in between. A trans guy who has his ovaries removed must be on some form of hormone therapy (eg: testosterone) or else risks bone loss & osteoporosis.
    • Some trans guys may opt for genital surgery. These procedures and the reasons why some trans guys might or might not want one surgery or another is a whole complicated topic in itself. But if you’re curious, look into metoidioplasty (’meta/meto’) or phalloplasty (’phallo’). Tread carefully.

So, I’ll wrap this up with my most important point, again: If you are anything other than a trans guy (eg: if you are cis, nb, etc), DO NOT CALL A TRANS DUDE’S DICK A CLIT. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS SMUTTY, CALL IT A DICK.

And, as I said, anyone can feel free to message me if they have questions about writing trans guys having sex.

Tl;dr: Just be respectful and know your subject matter.

Summary:

Sweat-slicked skin gleamed under the lights, two bodies moving as one as gasps of pleasure filled the quiet room. Katsuki had his head thrown back, eyes glazed as he rode out the sensation, thighs clamped tight around the warm body beneath him and hands fisted into silver hair…

“Cut.” Came the harsh voice of the director as the studio lights snapped back on, flooding the scene with a glaring brightness. “Take five everyone.”

“And you two.” he turned to the two actors who were both blinking in the sudden light and wiping the fake sweat from where it was lying stickily across their skin. “You need to get it together soon or this whole movie is going to be a disaster. You’re supposed to be in love for Christ’s sake! Katsuki, you look like you’re counting down the minutes until you can finish this scene and go and get lunch and Nikiforov, you’re just looking bored. You’re supposed to be actors! I don’t care how much you hate each other, you better act like you don’t or you’re both getting fired.”

Katsuki glared down at Nikiforov who was still lying beneath him, looking annoyed.

“You better step up your game.” Nikiforov drawled, looking disparagingly up at the man still straddling him. “I have a reputation to uphold and I’m not going to lose it to a bad movie because of one amateur, one-hit-wonder actor who can’t do his job properly.”

“Maybe it would be easier to do my job if you weren’t such an arrogant ass who can’t admit to his own mistakes.” Katsuki shot back, glare intensifying. “And stop acting like you’re such a big deal. You might be famous but you’re not that impressive.”

“I don’t know, I’ve been reliably informed by a lot of people that I’m very impressive.”

Nikiforov flicked his eyes to where their bodies were joined, only the smallest pieces of fabric separating them, eyebrow raised suggestively. Katsuki snorted in disgust, then rolled his hips in an unexpected movement that made a certain part of Nikiforov perk up in unintentional interest.

“I’ve seen better.”

Summary:

“You know, I like my men like I like my coffee.” Nikiforov said, leaning closer across the counter and trying out his best, award winning smile. The cute barista - whose nametag was always suspiciously absent whenever Nikiforov was in the shop and whose name he still couldn’t charm out of him, although not from lack of trying - merely glared in response and continued to make his order without replying.

“Dark, strong and a little bitter.” Nikiforov added with a flirtatious wink, making a point of looking at the man’s feathery dark hair and the lean muscles that stood out in his arms, accentuated by short sleeves of the uniform he was wearing.

“That’s funny. I like you just like I like my coffee too.” The barista’s glare changed in an instant to a coy smirk and Nikiforov’s heart leapt a little in his chest at the sight. It had been weeks since he had first spotted the man at his favourite coffee shop and he had been trying to charm him from the moment their eyes first met. Unsuccessfully so far but he knew it couldn’t be long now.

“And how is that?” Nikiforov replied, layering his tone with as much suggestiveness as he could muster.

“I don’t like coffee.”

The barista turned away to serve the next customer with a look of triumph and Nikiforov could feel his face fall. Oh well, there was always next time. After all, he didn’t give up easily and he always loved a challenge.

For centuries their silent war raged on, until one day the power of the God of Spring grew too great and he taunted the God of Death, creating an eternal Spring on earth where nothing could ever die.

Angered by the arrogance of the other God, the God of Death kidnaped the God of Spring for his mockery, locking him away in the underworld and plunging the world above into an eternal winter. But hatred slowly began to change into something new and the two Gods came to realise they might not be as different as they once seemed. But both were needed to keep the balance in the world, one above and one below, and as the long winter raged on even love was called into question. Because can anyone truly be in love if they are also not free?

Katsuki Yuuri is one of the most successful and feared assassins in the world, his reputation only succeeded by his greatest rival, an opposing hitman called Viktor Nikiforov. But after circumstances bring the two of them together for a complex and long-lasting job an uneasy peace is formed and gradually hatred turns to trust and respect and from that grows something more.

Job complete and aware of his new feelings for the man he once thought he hated, Katsuki returns to the organisation holding his leash - controlling him with the only other thing he cares about - to be given his next job, something he cannot refuse no matter what.

His next assignment. Kill Viktor Nikiforov.

Stuff from the Falsettos: In Conversation event!

William Finn, James Lapine, and Stephanie J. Block blew my mind several times yesterday and I wanted to share some cool things I learned about the show!

tl;dr: Falsettos beat Spiderman, Bill Finn and James Lapine should have their own sitcom, aND THE BANANA BELTING MOMENT WAS INITIALLY AN ACCIDENT

  • Packed house in Westport Country Playhouse. It was quite ironic because the event was free, but everyone there was hella rich. Hella. I know this because they started thanking donors at the beginning and there was one family there who had just donated a million. And literally not a single person was a POC. My middle-class Asian ass felt awkward.
  • It was Bill Finn, James Lapine, and Stephanie J. Block, moderated by Andrew C. Wilk (to whom we all owe our lives because he’s the executive producer of Live From Lincoln Center)
  • He told us cool stuff about filming Falsettos. There were ten cameras. He said that bringing all these huge cameras in was like your drunk uncle coming to a party
  • According to Andrew, when it first opened in cinemas, apparently in some markets FALSETTOS BEAT SPIDERMAN?????
  • YESSSSS FALSETTOS THAT’S MY FANDOM
  • Even Andrew couldn’t believe it
  • He was like it doesn’t sound true but I’m going to say it because it feels good to say it
  • And, as I mentioned in a previous post, he confirmed the PBS airdate as October 27 and he said that Falsettos might even have a second run in cinemas.
  • Andrew brought the three in. Audience went wild.
  • He asked them what the main theme of Falsettos is. Bill Finn says that it’s about what it means to be a man (which it seems that the Tumblr fandom has really hit upon in all the analyses, so good job Tumblr!!!)
  • And they talked about casting Stephanie J. Block. Bill said that she came in and auditioned with Holding to the Ground (“which isn’t a very good song,” says Bill) and he had never heard it sound that good
  • Stephanie has a very subtly poetic way of talking about things and it’s really moving?? She described Trina as a woman who constantly has “a well of tears” (she gestures at her throat) right here.
  • I’ve been there.
  • Andrew mentioned how her life is very different than Trina’s–she’s happily married with a beautiful daughter–and he asked her how she accessed Trina’s character
  • She talked about how she had taken a few years away from theater since her daughter was born. When Finn and Lapine called her about Trina to see if it’d be right for them and for her, she felt very insecure and scared going back to performing. The way she put it, in her state at the time, every emotion was at her fingertips. But she drew on this insecurity to play Trina. She said she listened to Falsettos and felt that she knew Trina.

  • Bill Finn is a CHARACTER. Cracked the entire audience up. He communicated almost exclusively in mumbled one-liners
  • When James Lapine was explaining the whole March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland Act I-Act II thing, Bill Finn was like, the first act’s not as good as the second act
  • Excuse me, Bill, both acts are masterpieces
  • So the format of the evening was that they would show a clip from the film and then talk about it, which was so cool. Watching the three of them watching the film was surreal, but one part was even more surreal
  • I’ve never seen that many elderly people in a room laughing hysterically over dick jokes
  • Partway through the event, Bill Finn started complaining about the fact that there were so many Act I clips, and Lapine was reassuring him that the first act was still good
  • I’m like HELL YEAH IT IS
  • He and James were hilarious together; they just bounced off each other and said such complimentary things about each other’s work and they would have full conversations with just their eyes
  • Okay, so we watched I’m Breaking Down, of course. Then Stephanie and James Lapine talked about the process of staging that scene. That was a gold mine.

  • According to James Lapine, the boobs were all Stephanie’s idea
  • James Lapine REALLY wanted to have a dummy bloody finger. He wanted to have Trina chop off a piece of her finger and there would be blood spurting and the audience would be freaking out over whether the actor actually was injured. He was very attached this idea and stuck to it until the very end. Everyone else was like James pls no. Eventually, it had to go because of the possibility of fake blood staining the costumes or set pieces
  • Stephanie warned us that she was about to make a pun but that she had to because it was so good, and then she said “the finger was cut”
  • And she was super proud of herself and grinning at the audience
  • James Lapine tried to high-five her, but she was too happy to see
  • (She finally noticed and high-fived him back)
  • The iconic banana belting moment was an accident????
  • Okay okay so this is a GREAT STORY
  • So y’all already know all about how it’s the actors themselves moving all the set pieces throughout the show. Stephanie says that it was Anthony Rosenthal who had to do most of the moving
  • So if any of the banana pieces fell, it was “poor Anthony” who had to clean them up
  • One day in rehearsal, sure enough, some banana pieces fell
  • Stephanie felt bad and didn’t want to make Anthony clean it up, so she picked them up and freaking SHOVED THEM INTO HER MOUTH
  • BUT SHE FORGOT THAT SHE STILL HAD TWELVE BARS OF THE SONG LEFT
  • When she finished, James Lapine was like O.O do you think you could do that often
  • The rest is history

  • I have so many Bill Finn anecdotes that I don’t know which to share
  • Like I said, Bill would mostly communicate in mumbly one-liners
  • Example: we were about to watch This Had Better Come to a Stop, and Andrew asked Bill to set up the scene for the audience (they explained all of the context for everything in case some audience members hadn’t seen Falsettos)
  • Bill: Whizzer is misbehaving and Marvin gets mad.
  • Andrew (laughing): Is that it?!
  • Bill: Yes.
  • (Lapine swooped in to give a more in-depth explanation)
  • But!! Bill would sometimes suddenly speak up and say something so incredibly thought-provoking 
  • They were talking about the unlikability of Marvin, and Bill talked about how a professor he had at Williams said that Jane Austen made Emma so unlikeable so that we could learn to like her
  • And Bill said that he listened
  • We finally got to Act II (Bill was very happy about this) and we watched the baseball scene. 
  • Apparently, James had said to Bill that they needed a group number with everyone in it. At that point, Bill had already written the entire baseball scene in his notebook except for a few final chords, and he was like oh here you go I already wrote one.
  • James: When were you going to give me this?!
  • Bill: When you needed it?
  • And Bill talked about what he referred to as the “handball scene.” James apparently staged the thing before Bill even wrote it.
  • James: Bill, that was racquetball.
  • Bill: Oh, I thought it was squash.

  • Andrew was asking about the Lesbians from Next Door and Bill was like, the lesbians are actually from In Trousers
  • And James had this wait hold up facial expression and he said, I didn’t even know this. Who were the lesbians???
  • And Bill was saying Ms. Goldberg and the high school sweetheart and by then, James Lapine looked like the galaxy brain meme
  • James was like, but that’s just the actors, not the same characters, right?!
  • Bill said yeah they’re completely different characters and James looked very relieved
  • James: We’re great together. On our own, we’re a disaster.
  • Stephanie was talking about how she feels like as a young woman, she didn’t have the life experience to appreciate the complexity of Bill Finn’s story and lyrics:
  • Stephanie: “I liked to tap dance and put on red lipstick and make people happy with musical theater.”
  • And suddenly Bill Finn yells, “ME TOO!!!!!!!!!!”
  • Imagine the kind of person who could write both “BITCH BITCH BITCH BITCH FUNNY FUNNY FUNNY FUNNY” and “this here is love when we’re talking face-to-face,” and you’ve got a pretty solid idea of Bill Finn
  • I know I haven’t talked about Andrew Wilk enough, so I’m going to reiterate here that we all owe our lives to this man. And he was so sweet and charismatic. I love this man. 
  • Near the end, they talked about us!!! The Falsettos fandom! Stephanie said she wants to call us kids, but she knows we’re teenagers and people in our twenties. She lovingly called us a cult and talked about all the banana memorabilia she has received and talked about how the cast sees pictures of us going to the cinemas in 80′s clothes/dressed as the characters. Stephanie thinks it’s so great <3 
  • Stephanie says that she’s not sure she’ll ever do a show as important as Falsettos again. She says there are so many wonderful shows, but in terms of “important”? It’s hard to find.

  • The final scene they showed was Jason’s Bar Mitzvah and What Would I Do? and it was too much. You could hear people crying softly.
  • The last half hour was Stephanie doing a mini-concert (accompanied by the Falsettos conductor/pianist Vadim Feichtner!) and when she belted, I thought the back wall was going to blow off
  • She sang a bunch of gorgeous songs, interspersed with her talking about what these songs mean to her, but among them were “Don’t Rain on My Parade” and Holding to the Ground” (FIGHT ME BILL IT’S ONE OF MY FAVORITE SONGS EVER) and “Defying Gravity” (Wicked is the show that got me into musical theater, so this was really special to me) and I cried
  • An absolutely beautiful evening.

  • Post-script: without announcing it or anything, they very quietly set up a signing with Stephanie in one corner. I spotted the table coming in, so I went to check it out afterwards, and SURE ENOUGH THERE SHE WAS. 
  • I was literally the second person to get there and there was no line behind me because people hadn’t realized yet. She signed the hand-out I got at the cinema (asking me who she should make it out to and addressing it to me in her beautiful swoopy handwriting!) and I told her I went to see Falsettos six times and she said, “I miss it every day, (my name). Every day.” And I asked her very hesitantly whether it’d be okay to get a picture with her, and she instantly said, “You ready?” Hence the selfie I posted last night. I CAN’T BELIEVE IT.

That was my day in Falsettoland!! I hope this stuff was interesting :) I love this show so much and I just wanted to share the cool stuff I learned!

ScarletVision kissing scene, the theory.

I’m writing this theory when I should be studying for my Anthropology class for tomorrow. I’m tired, it’s 00:37 am, and I have a full mug of coffee with hot chocolate in front of me. I would rather die than say that this was not worth it

Let us begin

The hospital scene fades away on the large screen behind me and the audience begin to clap and cheer. Dylan and I grin at each other, already knowing what happens after that scene.

12x10 - “Pterodactyl Screeching into the void” - Part 1

My title is borrowed from @postmodernmulticoloredcloak comment on my crazy blogging after first watching this episode earlier. I feel like it is a fitting title for how this episode made me feel. To clarify, these are very very happy pterodactyls.

Steve Yokey wrote this episode and he appears to have well and truly taken up the gap left when Robbie Thompson sadly left the show. In fact this episode to me channels the ghost of Robbie in many different ways. From the fanfiction-esque moments of poor suffering third wheel Sam, to the meta nod to Charlie Bradbury, there is much of Robbie to be found here. Basically, it was bloody perfect.

I feel like there is so much to talk about in this episode that fandom will be chewing on it for months if not years to come. Yokey has picked up the characterisations brilliantly, and seems to have an understanding of what the fandom desperately craves in terms of Castiel, his character, his personality and his development. I adored his sass in this episode. Some other writers *cough*bucklemming*cough* struggle to really capture Castiel’s sass and humour. Showing their lack of understanding of Castiel’s persona and his intelligence and instead writing him in a way that is jarring and sometimes basically stupid. Castiel is far from stupid. In this episode he was written perfectly, in a way I haven’t seen since Edlund’s time. Is that a sweeping statement? Maybe. But I’m still riding my high so let me have it this time.

This episode gave us three of my favourite things. Badass and Sassy Castiel, Overprotective grumpy husband Dean, and poor long suffering brother Sam. (baring in mind this is how they are usually written in fanfiction nowadays this is exactly my jam and I am so so happy to see it play out on screen. Seriously who sold their soul to Crowley for this episode?)

This review will also be in two parts. Because I have so freaking much to say about it.

The first part will focus on destiel, the second on everything else including Castiel’s emotional arc (as separate from destiel), his relationships with angels, angels and gender and Lily Sunder’s character.

Rebuilt: Arrow 5x22 Review (Missing)

“Missing” was amazing! Emotional and action packed with zinging dialogue. 

Originally posted by pewslight

What struck me most was how full circle it was. “Missing” sets up the heroes versus villains battle that will come to fruition in the finale, but it also kicks off the basic question Oliver must ask: What makes a hero? What makes a villain? Those concepts are not always rigid. In fact, the very essence of hero and villain is fluid.

Oh… and did I mention there’s an Olicity reunion scene?

Let’s dig in…

Keep reading

honestly, i’m getting so tired of the impatience in the bellarke fandom. you guys know that this ship is a slow burn and if you’re going to keep getting disappointed by the material that we get every week and filled the tag with endless pessimism, then maybe you shouldn’t be shipping it. 

i understand that it sucks to have expectations that aren’t met, but you need to realize that it has to happen at the right time, at a time where it doesn’t feel forced or unnatural.

bellamy and clarke have been on separate journeys for most of the season, which is necessary because they’ve both been through a lot and they need to heal properly before they can start a healthy relationship. furthermore, this season has shown ~ over and over again ~ how much bellamy and clarke love each other. 

  • the list scene literally showed how they won’t live without one another
  • “clarke, if i don’t see you again…”
  • “she’ll see how special you are,” - ‘special’ is a word that’s been used frequently in this show with romantic context.
  • roan using bellamy against clarke and her not being able to sacrifice his life to save her people 
  • bellamy freaking out when he couldn’t connect get in contact with clarke on the radio and him being so relieved to find out that she wasn’t dead 
  • clarke choosing bellamy’s life over the entire human race 

let that sink in, people. bellamy and clarke don’t want to live without one another, they simply can’t. and if that isn’t something that screams romantic development, i don’t know what does. 

Girl, I guess {TVD 8x16 Review}

OK guys, this is the last time I will have to warn the TVD fandom about writing in real time! Here it goes: You all know the drill, I write my thoughts in real time which means if I make any mistakes at the beginning of my review, I might have rectified them at the end. This will include: anti-Damon, anti-Delena, anti-Steroline, anti-Bamon, anti-Bonenzo sentiments. It will most likely reference other TV shows including Kdramas and may include observations of the show’s anti-blackness and racism. Are you ready? Let’s. Go. 

1. That SC kiss is still awful. Slow-mo it all you want guys, it’s just going to accentuate how awful it was.

2. Kinda salty that the hotel’s wifi isn’t much better than the data on my phone.

3. Seriously, Vicki and Kelly being in hell makes no sense.

4. “The magic was too much for her” HOW THOUGH? Bonnie did way more strenuous magic in freaking season 2. LIKE?

5. “No no no no no”, Stefan is panicking that Bonnie might be dead and Caroline’s just like, Oh. I know we all talk about how Paul has checked out but what the fuck has Candice been doing?

6. So like why is Elena in a random ass wood in a random ass white bed? Is this what Bonnie’s world looks like? Because I thought it was a rundown Mystic Grill.

7. Nina’s wig is AWFUL.

8. How would Elena seeing Bonnie make Elena think Bonnie is dead though? Like, isn’t it just that if Bonnie dies, Elena wakes up? Who said anything about meeting each other in a random ass forest before Bonnie dies?

9. So Elena doesn’t even blink an eye when Bonnie tells her “I can be with Enzo now”? Like she just accepts that her friend is going to die to be with someone who was an enemy when Elena was awake?

10. How does Enzo have the power to bring Bonnie back to life? Is Enzo an angel? LIKE? Rules DO need to exist, Julie.

11. The look of relief on Stefan’s face when Bonnie wakes up is so nice to see.

12. Vicki, stop talking. I also like how no one has tried to tie her up to keep her from ringing the bell. Just because you can’t kill her doesn’t mean you can’t contain her.

13. “I can’t go back there, you don’t know what it’s like” because the show literally hasn’t shown us anything.

14. How predictable is it that the DE reunion is really a DK reunion, oh! Like season 1 when he thought he was kissing Elena! CLEVER. Like 100 anons came into in my inbox like, I bet it’s Katherine, the moment that reunion aired. Well, at least Damon realized it was Katherine this time, you know, after hugging her and being all, “You’re both OK.”

15. It is so tacky they made her say, “Hello brothers.” Like omg, why isn’t it over yet

16. So Katherine is in Elena’s dress. Is Elena just naked somewhere? And she straightened her hair, like how much time did she have to do this?

17. “Her PHYSICAL body” I do miss seeing Paul and Nina onscreen together again, that “so over it” attitude is very reminiscent of season 2 and the delivery was hilarious.

18. Although this Katherine is a little off, she actually seems a little more unhinged, like the way Nina says, “the devil” in that tone and “Why do you think he wanted you? Because I  wanted you. DUH.” Like this is probably the first time I’ve been like so you’re crazy.

19. I don’t know why but Stefan is making me laugh so far. Damon is all “Dammit Katherine” and Stefan’s HAD IT, he’s just like YO let me stab this bitch “We gotta find, Elena, let’s go” and he LEAVES. Like he’s ready to go into battle. It also makes me feel like it’s Paul rushing to finish a scene like, “It’s the last episode, Ian, let’s GO.”

20. CAROLINE. VAMP SPEED. Walking down the stairs with a teddybear all chill and shit.

21. This is so low energy, Alaric and Caroline should be yelling at the top of their lungs, like if you want me to believe this is life or death then the characters needs to be amped, they need to be scared and frenzied, this feels like any other fight in any other episode.

22. Alaric, seriously, demote Caroline to Auntie because that’s how she acts with those twins anyway.

23. At least Katherine took the time to dress Elena in a shirt, a cardigan and jeans. It’s very thoughtful of her.

24. Me at Stefan’s face when he sees Elena on the ground:

25. So Katherine’s hair is suddenly curly again? Does she have superpowers?

26. Oh great. The fact that Katherine said Elena would choose Stefan over Damon just confirms that Elena will in fact choose Damon over Stefan. Just had to spit in the SErs’ faces one last time, I guess.

27. Lol watch Katherine actually be Silas getting into everyone’s heads and voicing their deepest fears. Again.

28. I want to feel something about this SC scene but I’m legit bored. “Please, please don’t make me leave you, please,” was sweet. That’s about it.

29. Like I’ve seen Stefan emotionally distraught at having to part ways with Elena:

and I know SErs are upset over the “I love you so much” but it’s not this:

30. It really doesn’t feel like the “world” is coming to an end, everyone is actually pretty chill. Like the season 2 finale of Buffy was the world ending (again) and everyone is freaking the fuck out:

and this is just like, Elena is unconscious, Matt allows Vicki to ring a bell that will bring hellfire and there’s the slowest evacuation in the world. We don’t even see randoms freaking out in the street. Whatever.

31. Of course Bonnie is staying behind.

32. “Downtown Mystic Falls”, I mean I guess. As the crow flies? WHO WROTE THIS. You are NOT in Lord of the Rings.

33. So I’m confused about this plan, Bonnie is going to redirect hell fire through the tunnels away from MF into hell … so these tunnels lead into hell? Bonnie knows where hell is? The fire won’t destroy the tunnels?

34. Aw, Paul is acting! But yeah his speech to Damon is meh because Damon doesn’t deserve shit.

35. Considering that vampire blood can’t work on people who have ingested the cure, why would compulsion?

36. Why would I care about a Donovan family reunion?

37. So Grams is still around even though the Other Side is gone?

38. Bonnie pulled a Gandalf. “You shall not pass.”

39. Sorry, it was supposed to be a powerful scene but like nah.

40. So a bunch of black women who I’m guessing are the Bennett clan are pushing the hell fire away to protect a town that does not acknowledge their existence. Mmkay.

41. “He’s the better man, he’s the right man.” LOL EXCEPT NOT. HOW? Because he was FINALLY willing to sacrifice himself after almost two centuries?

42. He probably whispered something about loving Caroline to Elena.

43. I feel like I’m supposed to be sad that Stefan is dead but like I’ve seen this coming for a while.

44. LOL Magic School/Hogwarts where Jeremy teaches, this is SO BAD.

45. I’m sorry but these “peaces” just look like individual prison worlds.

What an AWFUL series finale, like it was SO BAD. I can’t even, I mean it’s laughably bad but like THIS is how you’re ending a supernatural series? WHAT DID I JUST WATCH? Nothing happened! Stefan sacrifices himself to make sure Katherine’s in hell when the fire comes but he dies when the fire goes through the tunnels so why wouldn’t Katherine just be dead if they kept her tied down in the tunnels when the fire came? And then Caroline and Alaric open a boarding school for magical kids in which Jeremy teaches for absolutely no reason and Klaus is a donor because why not and Vicki finally achieves nothingness except nothingness is peace with Tyler somewhere even though Tyler basically treated her like trash and the Other Side is gone so how they’re still watching the living is beyond me. And then Bonnie travels the world and that somehow makes her happy as if she hadn’t traveled before. Matt got a bench, good for you Matt. And Elena goes to med school and has a happy life with Damon we don’t see and then they die and each of them spend their peace not with each other and it ends. Like … why tho? How does this make sense as ending? I should’ve been drunk for this. Plus side is, Stefan has still only called Elena the love of his life.

anonymous asked:

Out of all of them, apart from Allura, Shiro probably deserve to be angry at Keith for being (half) Galra. Imagine all those tortures or made for entertainment he and the other prisoners were. They are the reason his life was ruined (cos I am pretty sure he would have many success when he returns). But no, he didn't blame Keith at all for being one like Allura did. He supported him, gave him a hug while we also see Hunk actually being negative of him during their mission. Just. Bless Shiro fam!!

Yes, yes!!! Out of everyone, Shiro was Keith’s anchor through it all. He’s the one who checks in with Keith and notices that something’s wrong; he’s the one who sees him through the trial and offers nothing but unconditional support after the reveal. Shiro was there for Keith in a way no one else ever was, and I wish that fanon didn’t just gloss over that so much. 

Shiro’s easy acceptance is definitely do to their close bond–“My life would be a lot different without you,” Shiro being the one thing who “can really calm Keith down,” Shiro being the one Keith “desperately wants to see,” ect. But I also think Shiro’s able to empathize with him more because he understands a bit of what he’s going through. Keith’s galra arc parallels Shiro’s own character development in a lot of ways; both of them struggle with this notion that they’re irredeemable, that they belong to the galra empire. When Shiro looks at himself, sees what the galra have done to him, he sees a monster

But when Shiro sees Keith is galra? His gaze softens. His eyes go wide in wonder, like he’s really seeing Keith for the first time. And his expression doesn’t evoke a sense of fear or rage here; Shiro stares on in awe, completely mesmerized. His body language and the lighting of the scene both feel open and calming–serene, ethereal. There’s something about the luxite’s glow that’s reminiscent of Allura’s healing magic. It’s a power that’s portrayed here as good, just, and benevolent. For Shiro, I think in a way this is healing–he’s allowing himself to let go of his hatred for the galra (a process we already see begin with Ulaz) and this notion that being “part of the empire” makes him broken and corrupt. He’s also coming to terms with Keith’s identity, an identity that Shiro accepts wholeheartedly. 

Shiro hates himself for his ties to the galra, but he’s able to love and support Keith despite that. And if he can still see the good in Keith, then he knows there’s still hope for him. I think that, by accepting Keith, he was kind of able to come to terms with some of his own trauma, and be more forgiving of himself as well. And it certainly helps that Shiro realizes Keith still cares for him too–still treasures him as his closest person after all this time, the one friend he desperately wants to see. I think it really meant a lot to Shiro that someone adored him so much, that they still loved him despite the year apart and all that’s changed. Because their mutual love and support definitely goes both ways. 

And I was just talking about this before, but one of the most prominent themes in fanon was always “X character is the first to find out Keith is freaking out over being galra, so they help him through it and offer wholehearted comfort and support. They fall in love, ect.” Always, this role was a position delegated to Keith’s chosen love interest. So I find it very interesting that Shiro, the one who actually fulfills this role in canon, hardly ever seems to get credit for it. 

And in those aus, I often saw Shiro relegated to the role of the Betrayed Friend. The one who couldn’t bear to look Keith in the eye anymore, who took his reveal the hardest and refused to even talk to him. Which always sounded incredibly out of character to me, and I’m so glad canon proved that it was. And I will never understand the fact that fanon often limits or overwrites Shiro’s role in Keith’s galra arc simply because they’d rather substitute him with their fav. This idea of Keith having an anchor during his galra reveal was just so romanticized in fandom; I feel like the fact that that person ended up being Shiro should at least count for something. I mean, when Keith left for his mission no one else would even say goodbye, but Shiro is right by his side 

Stuck in the Middle (with You)/Awesome Crowley

[For a meta about Reservoir Dogs and Tarantino’s use of gay subtext, click here.]

I don’t want to be the person who ruins everyone’s fun, so I’m saving my one big criticism of this episode for last. This meta is completely positive, even saccharine, until the very last paragraph. Also, I’m borrowing one of my favourite AO3 tags as a title because, let’s face it, Crowley was the real hero of this episode and where the action was, and that’s perfectly okay and long overdue. Crowley’s been around for years now, and he’s gone through huge bouts of character development, and yet we still know next to nothing about him and he’s often treated like an afterthought, both by our heroes and by the writers. This episode finally (finally!) corrected that, because no matter how intriguing and plain beautiful everyone was, Crowley was magnificent - as I fully expected him to be.

After all, they’re good - but he’s Crowley.


Like anyone with eyes, I loved everything about this episode, and especially how it was filmed. I have to say - this is the first episode in a long time that actually had me in tenterhooks about a possible character death, because you never know, right? Theoretically, Crowley could die, and so could Cas. Theoretically. And also the music, did I mention the music? I think that scene of Cas crawling away from Ramiel and the shot of Ramiel stabbing him - that’s just become my favourite Supernatural scene ever, bar none. It was so powerful and dramatic and visually magnificent and that damn music - wow

I adored that symbolism, because Cas’ been a Christ figure for a while now, and seeing him like that, on his back, defeated and stabbed by a lance - you can’t get more Golgotha than that. Beautiful stuff.

I also loved that this episode was, in a way - off-centre. Sam and Dean were there, of course, but the story was not focused around them. The real protagonist was the supernatural world itself - Cas, Crowley, Ramiel; even Lucifer, to me, was more present than he’s been in a while, what with this vague threat of his child hanging over the world, and him taunting Crowley and flashing his red eyes at this most undemonic demon in the very last scene. The truth is, I love everything about Sam and Dean, and that includes the incredibly talented actors who play them, but I feel the show could benefit greatly from approaching their story from a different perspective every once in a while. I’d love to know more about their childhood, for instance, or about this world of monsters and hunters around them; and a completely Outsider POV episode is, at this point, something I’d probably sell half my soul for.

Anyway - lately, this show reads like very good fanfiction, and considering how engaged, loving and talented this fandom is, this is high praise. I particularly appreciate the fact they’re going back to important plot points and filling them in with completely new details - after all, we’ve been wondering for years what’s up with demonic eyes, or how Crowley became king in the first place (or, at least, I know I did). This new class of demons appearing out of nowhere - creatures powerful enough to wield an archangel’s weapon - that’s incredible stuff. I’m guessing we’ll see more about them, and I can’t freaking wait.

So, yes - Ramiel was spot-on. Jerry Trimble managed just the right mixture of underwhelmingly normal and terrifyingly amoral - so much so I’m sort of sad we didn’t get to see more of this character, even if everything about him, including his death, was handled just right - there was no room for anything more.

My one slight criticism there would be the fizzling nature of Cas’ abilities. For instance, didn’t we establish that Cas can smell lies? So why couldn’t he guess Mary was hiding something? And what about demons’ true forms? I always assumed Cas could see that (was it ever stated in canon? it must have been), and I was therefore almost disappointed that Cas couldn’t recognize Ramiel for what he was. Maybe it can be explained away by him slowly becoming closer and closer to a human being - I don’t know. In any case, I’m truly appreciating how obsessed everyone seems to be with him lately. After years of taking angels for granted, we’ve got two characters in short succession fangirling over angels (in a creepy, murderous and definitely non-con way, but still) - and, yeah, I know that basically everyone spent the entirety of Supernatural pointing out how different and unique Cas is, and I’m grateful for that, but it’s also nice to get a reminder that angels are awesome (in the other sense of the word) in and of themselves.

(I’m still loving Mr Ketch, by the way. Aaaaaw.)

Let’s now come to our unsung hero: Mr Crowley.

Crowley was magnificent in all this. And we’ve now learned he never seriously planned to become King of Hell - my headcanon, which I’m considering confirmed, is that Crowley simply wants control. He’s been tortured for a century or more as some demon tore his human soul out of him, and he’s never putting himself in that position again, which is very sensible of him, and also very Scarlett O’Hara.

mod rika explains why they love rika

okay someone sent an ask asking why i love rika, and they asked me to answer it privately so i’m just gonna put it all here then send them a link!!

SPOILERS FOR V’S ROUTE UP UNTIL DAY 10 CAUSE THAT’S AS FAR AS I AM!! READ AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION

The first thing I want to say before I start gushing about her, she has done horrible, inexcusable things.  But that doesn’t mean she deserves to die/rot in jail/whatever you want her to do.

Now onto my list

1) Rika is kind.  She had a horrible child, from the verbal abuse from her adopted parents and the bullying from kids at her school, but she still is kind and compassionate and wants to help other people, hence her founding the RFA.  Of course, as time went on, her way of helping people became distorted and harmful for the people she wanted to “save”.

2) I can relate to her.  We both got dat bpd or at least that’s what i think she has lmao.  With everything she went through when she was younger combined with her mental illness(es), she wanted to kill herself and V treated that as a sort of “art” and tried to be the hero and save her.  I’m not blaming V, don’t get me wrong, but it upsets me as a neurodivergent person.

3) She’s just?? really gay??? Like have u played v’s route SLAMS EMBRACE RIKA OPTION

4) The scene where she breaks down crying because V said it was an obsession and not love.  It really resonates with me.  Even if you hate her, it would be hard to not at least pity her in that moment.  She breaks down saying if V didn’t love her, then that would mean no one has ever loved her.  Again, I can relate cuz the bpd makes me freaked out that no one actually loves me rippp

5) She’s such a complex and interesting character.  I’ve always loved her as a character (even if the fandom originally made me despise her and think she was completely to blame for everything wrong that happened in mysme).  I could make a 100000 point list of things about her (as a character) that I love, but the main ones just being her past i’m a slut for that tragic backstory and her progression as a character.  Starting from a person just wanting everyone to be loved and cared for by hosting charity parties, slowly escalating to her “devil” taking over and forming Mint Eye, creating an all around toxic environment.

6) I just….. want to protect her.  With how the fandom treats her, calling her a bitch and a snake, I just feel bad for her and want to hug her.  And y’all know she wouldn’t be nearly as hated if she were a guy.  Internalized misogyny yayyy

If any of you guys have seen Death Note, I kinda like to relate my love for her in a similar way to how I love Light.  They’ve both done horrible things that originated with good intentions.  They’ve been corrupted by their internal demons, and I just want them to be happy and go back to the way they were before everything started.

So there’s the main reasons why I love her.  I think she deserves happiness and help, and if she were to get those things, she could become a person that everyone loves.

I have to thank @the-witching-hours12-3 for sending me a copy of Kingsman and giving me the chance to finally watch it. It’s thanks to her that I am now part of this fandom! I’m so happy about it! I also have to thank her for beta reading this and everything I send her and coming up with the title for this piece!

To say any part of your life was “normal” would be a fucking joke. Your father was a hacker for a secret organization called Kingsman under the codename Merline. As if that wasn’t abnormal enough, you were also a Kingsman. You had gone through all of the tests and passed with flying colors, earning you the codename Branwyn. But you seldom did fieldwork thanks to a genetic mutation.

You still didn’t fully understand how this happened, but what you did know was that you had a very rare genetic mutation that gave you “inhuman” abilities. Your mutation gave you pyrokinetic powers; in simple terms, you could manipulate fire. The mutation didn’t manifest until one night when you were attacked and almost raped on your way home from the pub one night. This dodgy guy wouldn’t take no for an answer, he started to reach for you and wouldn’t listen to your yelling. Then something lit up your insides, and your mutation left its mark on the man’s face. You ran home and called the one person who could help you: your father.

From that moment on, you lived closer to your father and started training with fellow Kingsman. You worked with your father and Lancelot, (her code name, although she let you call her Roxy) on keeping control. They knew a surprising amount of information that could help you. Focusing on your breathing seemed to be the biggest part. Now, your powers usually came out when you focused and called for them, but they would still burst forth when you were unstable. Breathing seemed to help with the latter. That being said, it was still a struggle sometimes.

A surprisingly helpful person was Eggsy Unwin. He was a confident, cheeky, handsome, and loyal man who snuck into your life and became your go-to-guy for almost anything. He started talking to you when you would be outside on your breaks. You always came out for fresh air at specific times of the day; noon and 7PM. And every time you went outside, Eggsy would just so happen to be taking a break too. He got you talking and the rest was history. Nowadays, he was the closest person in your life, other than your father.

You couldn’t help but have feelings for him. That being said, he didn’t know two things about you. 1) He didn’t know that Merlin was your father and 2) He didn’t know that you were pyrokinetic. The first one was a safety precaution that you and your father had talked about; the only other person that knew of your familial relation was Harry. The second, well that was your decision.

It was 6PM; you had been in a weird funk all day, so you decided to take your break a bit early to try to avoid Eggsy. As much as you loved him, you weren’t sure you wanted to be around people right now.

You sat against one of the decorative pieces in the backyard of the mansion. Taking a few deep breaths, you felt a little warmth in your left hand. Lifting it up, you saw a little flame floating in your palm. You slowly rolled it in between your fingers, much like regular people would do with a coin or a pen.

Small things like this were getting very easy for you to control. It didn’t require a lot of focus and sometimes even happened when you were alone and your mind wandered a bit. It was the big ones that required what felt like an impossible amount of energy and focus.

“After this break, I’m going to go back inside, do the last of my work for the night, then try to work with dad on building strength and trying to use this shit to my advantage. Being a hacker underneath him is respectable work, but FUCK I want to go and do shit like Eggsy or Roxy. Maybe even work with one of them. But how do I tell that to dad? He wants me to be safe and–”

You were so in your thoughts that you didn’t hear the footsteps of a certain green-eyed crush walking towards you until he spoke up. He was looking down at a file as he spoke.

anonymous asked:

So like how much on a scale from 1-10 do you think they’ll set “Sister Jo” up as a love interest for Dean? Obviously we don’t really know much about her just yet but lmao just for fun I guess

Hi friendo! I’m currently giving the likelihood of Sister Jo becoming a love interest for Dean somewhere in the -3 to -9 range of probability. In case that didn’t translate properly, I’m saying the chances are less than zero. Considering Andrew Dabb’s own words on the subject. Not to mention this sort of reaction to any female character joining the show for any reason is as old and dull as last week’s bath water.

They’ve been keeping s13 so hush-hush, even Jess’s spoiler sheet is looking a bit spare for anything happening post 13.09… Spoilers from set have been genuine surprises as episodes have aired (did ANYONE see Ketch coming? And despite knowing we’d be seeing Kevin again, nobody even realized he’d already filmed for 13.07 until he walked through that door. I mean they’ve been fantastic at hiding this sort of thing from us this season!) So the fact we know she’s going to be playing a potentially recurring character called Sister Jo, and that her story will involve Lucifer, we literally know nothing else.

I prefer not to preemptively get all wound up in knots over stuff this vague.

(although I personally am LOVING the crack theory that she’ll be super-flirtatious with Cas and all but ignore Dean, to Cas’s utter bafflement and Dean’s extreme grumpiness. if I’m not gonna know anything else about this for more than two months, I’d rather laugh about that while I can instead of biting my nails over something that’s honestly not very likely to happen…)

I currently have five other anons, all of which I’ve been hemming and hawing over answering. I don’t want to ignore anyone’s concerns, but I also don’t want to put too much thought into worrying about any of this. But for the sake of acknowledging people’s feelings, I’m gonna post them here:

no offence but. we know this show and how it works, how it can change storylines mid-season. there is a very real huge possibility that danneel’s character will be dean’s endgame. she’s a faith healer and that will also tie to dean’s arc about faith that cas occupied. and it will placate the fandom bc despite being a new character they already know and love her. i also love danneel and wanted her in the show forever but the recurring role terrifies me. i can’t trust them.

No offence, but any statement that begins “no offence, but” is automatically translated “I am about to be offensive.” I understand if you can’t trust them, but I just can’t live with that level of bitterness in my soul, so I’m gonna just keep watching the show. Because in *my* experience, we have been here so many times I actually made a gif for how many times we’ve been through this:

(see those links in my reply to the original anon for receipts on just how many times this exact bit of fandom wank has arisen over the years, only to amount to a giant hill of beans.)

omg omg omg. Danneel? I’m cut in half. I’m ecstatic to see her on supernatural but my destiel heart is freaked out. it’s too much. Oh my God. Help me mittens !

Oh my goodness, I am only one smol mittens. I am only good for keeping hands warm.

I’M SO EXCITED FOR DANNEEL ON THE SHOW OMG. But as a Destiel fan, am I scared? Hm, nope not really, but I do understand why some are. I know there’s nothing to worry about but this is Supernatural, literally anything can happen. I just hope the writers won’t turn out to be queerbaiting us all along. I hate that shit. But I know they’re not that cruel or stupid so I’m still excited for Danneel :)

THANK YOU SENSIBLE ANON! I agree with you. And I have a really hard time that this particular group of writers would do something as low as deliberate queerbaiting. But I agree with you. Here, have a cookie:

I know Daneel is Jensen’s wife and everything, but please SPN don’t have Dean be a creep and fetishise the nun-_- I was SUPER sore for a long time about him making advances on and then sleeping with the born again virgin woman back in s9, after she asked him to pray with her. I know it was her choice but she was still in a very vulnerable position and I just have a serious problem with the way media has this “gotta make a bad girl outta the religious chick” trope. It’ slimy and creepy.

Yeah, I know some folks are extra-worried because this is a bucklemming episode, but I would also like to offer the fact that Bucklemming has a relatively decent track record of dealing with religious themes in general. My previous reply to an anon worried about the bucklemming of it has a whopping 15 notes, so I guess this is an unpopular opinion, but heck, is there ANYONE who thinks Sister Mathias in 10.16 wasn’t an excellent characterization of a nun, and a direct Dean mirror rather than a love interest? And then the freaking confessional scene? I mean… are we actually worried about this? If we are, we should probably reconsider our understanding of Bucklemming. (and yeah, I shudder just saying that, but in this particular case, the concern is unfounded)

Originally posted by dmitri-mish-ackles

all this drama regarding danneel as sister jo - do we have confirmation she’s a nun? she’s a faith healer and that’s all we know, for all we know she could be living in a super tight-knit community and is just being called sister jo by everyone. she could be a jehovah’s witness, they called their members brother/sister. she could be british, sister is a british way of calling a nurse. posibilities are endless

Nope, we do not have confirmation that she’s a nun. But knowing bucklemming and the themes they like to touch on (see that link in reply to the previous anon just above the gif there… one or both of them is seriously into the religious themes).

Heck, even the angels on this show refer to each other as “brother” and “sister,” so she could potentially be another angel… I mean, we honestly have no way of knowing at this point. Maybe that’s why she’s got the powers to be a faith healer… 

Originally posted by supernaturalfreewill

Okay, now I feel better that I at least have done something with these messages. I hope folks are feeling generally more chill about this entire scenario now. I for one am THRILLED to finally have Danneel on the show, in whatever capacity. I think she’s fantastic, and I can’t wait to see her episode(s)!

Ymir’s Role in SnK: Not Over Yet?

Fandom has been pretty up in arms since we learned of Ymir’s death. Understandable. Here we have another Dead Lesbian on our hands, and worse, she was killed off-screen, probably well before Reiner delivered her letter to the Survey Corps, and all we get is one little image of her.

Also, her motivations have been difficult to pinpoint for the fandom. Was it that she felt sorry for Reiner and Bertolt? That she felt a connection to them (because she was one of them/a mainland Eldian)? That she felt guilty for eating Marcel? That she really felt this could save Historia?

In the second guidebook there is a little information on Ymir’s true motivations for doing this, as translated by @tsuki-no-ura. You can read it here on their blog.

Afraid that Marley’s hand will extend towards Historia, she decides to work together with Reiner’s group.

It both does and doesn’t make sense. Ymir wasn’t “playing” soldier–it was her life, or what she had left of it, anyway.

So why hand herself over to the enemy? How will that help Historia–help Paradis? And while I’m at it, how much information does Ymir have on the state of things in Marley at this point, anyway? She can’t know much; she was a mindless titan for 60 years! And before that, she was a brainwashed child. It seems pretty foolish to hand herself over to Bertolt and Reiner when she doesn’t even have half of the complete picture.

So why go to Marley? Why hand herself over to the enemy? Why give them another weapon with which to smash Paradis, and also Historia, into the ground?

This is about to get really long and very image-heavy, so buckle up for the long ride, friends.

ICYMI Pt 14--3x06

Ian is venting to Mickey about the group home and Mickey is listening, even giving him tips on what not to do there, playfully making fun of Ian’s simple complaints.

What I love about this scene is how naturally they communicate and how easy their friendship seems. It makes me wonder what amazing (and/or hilarious) conversations we missed. I think Ian probably tells Mickey most things going on in his life (though obviously Mickey was present for this particular development, I still see Ian being an open book with Mickey in general), but does Mickey tell Ian much? How much of that wall is left standing at this point?

<EDIT>

It was pointed out to me that I missed this part…

While some people argue that this was Mickey’s way of asking if they were monogamous or exclusive (and there is some truth to that) I think this was more of Mickey genuinely looking out for Ian’s well being. It could be that this question was a double ended one where he was both trying to test the still unexplored waters of the “relationship,” and genuinely making sure that Ian didn’t get his ass handed to him by trying to fuck around or make friends. The reason I lean more towards the latter is because this would be a douchey time for Mickey to worry about something like that, don’t you think? Ian’s in a group home filled with dangerous guys and Mickey has first hand knowledge of the types of people in those places, and that they are scary (especially for sweet and innocent looking Ian). This shows further how much Mickey worries about Ian and cares about Ian’s well being. Ian is a pretty trusting guy so Mickey wants to make sure Ian knows how to handle himself because he’s worried about his safety.

Possibly from concern for Ian’s safety, possibly because he’s ready to test those new waters since they’ve opened themselves up to kissing, Mickey invites Ian over to his place.

And look at how nervous he looks!

Peeking up at him, like he’s maybe second guessing his offer, weighing the possible ways Ian could take this. And wondering if maybe this is pushing past the friendship facade too much, if this is opening himself up too much.

Trying to play it nonchalant, but probably knowing he isn’t fooling anyone…

Trying to play down what is actually a big deal because as much as we would love for him to be, Mickey just is not an externally emotional guy and he doesn’t like wearing his emotions on his sleeve (or lack of sleeves…) So we can’t exactly expect for him to be super romantic about the ordeal, but I definitely think I can see some excitement there. Some one-on-one time with his unofficial boyfriend that doesn’t have to include any sneaking around or shame.

Ian meanwhile is over the moon for their first night together because this is a HUGE step! Sure, it’s just going to be more of the same; hanging out, sex, hanging out, sex, but on top of it, Ian is spending the night which gives the whole thing a sense of domesticity on top of their usual hanging out.

There isn’t much to analyze per se about the sleepover, but I will break it down just for those who maybe missed their not so secret or subtle glances at each other which establishes just how smitten they each are for the other. This was actually the moment I think I fell in love with Gallavich because those looks at each other just said it all, man.

So we start off with some serious domesticity with Mickey donning the infamous oven mitts.

And then we see joking, friendship, chilling on the couch, splitting a cigarette, just watching a movie.

I will never get over the friendship aspect of their relationship because I feel too frequently in media in general, not just Shameless, we see romantic relationships explode from nowhere with no indication of a friendly love that backs it up. Take it from someone on the back half of a decade with her high school sweetheart, everlasting relationships do not come from passion alone. Here with Ian and Mickey we see how they are outside of the bedroom more than in, so we see them talk and play and joke which is SO important.

So we see another beautiful peek at their friendship, and out of nowhere…

That INCREDIBLE chemistry I’m always screaming about comes into play to change everything about this moment.

Not so casually checking this guy out, appreciating how beautiful he is and also maybe even this little sense of disbelief that this is happening?

Ian, doing the same thing, tickled pink that this is happening, that they’ve made it over this hurdle.

Sure, the director could have told them to look at each other while the other wasn’t looking… but that electric chemistry is what makes this moment what it is. I can feel how they are both waiting for the perfect opportunity to jump on each other… they can’t keep their eyes off of each other and I can almost see them both considering that maybe they’ll try out some of that kissing nonsense Mickey was so against before. Bottom line, the sexual tension and companionship is palpable with this scene and I pray everyone recognizes it and doesn’t try to deny it.

So, for the following part I’m throwing up a Trigger Warning. This trigger warning will cover abuse and rape. Please read at your own discretion because I will be including graphic gifs where necessary.

You have been warned.

A/N: You have two kids with Tom, fluff and fluff Part 1 , Part 2  (Part of the All was well series) Enjoy!


I was taking a shower when I suddenly heared Tom come humming into the bathroom.
“Tom! I’m taking a shower!” I exclaimed, not moving while my arms were wrapped around my upper half.
“I can hear that. Is it good?” he said in a singsong and opened the water to do god knows what and my hot water turned cold immediatly.
“Tom!” I shrieked while jumping to the side so that I wouldn’t get any water on my skin.

“Oh my bad. Sorry darling.” he apologiezed and yanked the shower curtain open and stepped into the shower as if it was the most normal thing to do.
“Hey!” he smirked but I was having none of it.
“Get out! It’s me time. I wanna take a shower.” I scolded him and pointed at the door so he’d leave.
“But if we shower together, we’ll save time, water and money.” he counted on his fingers and I glared at him.
“If you don’t step out, I’m going to shove those fingers so high up your ass that you’ll be able to scratch your breakfast from your teeth, Holland!” I growled and he pouted.
“I didn’t have any. Did you have breakfast without me?”

“Jesus Tom!” I exclaimed again and threw my arms up in the air in frustration which left my body fully uncovered.
“I guess I’ll have breakfast now.” he smirked and layed one hand on my waist trying to pull me towards him but I yanked his hand away.
“You’re so annoying.” I groaned before stepping out of the shower and wrapping a towel around me. I closed the bathroom door and walked into our bedroom to put some clothes on. The kids were still sleeping, so I prepared breakfast before I woke them up. I just had finished frying some eggs when a very sleepy Ben walked in, still rubbing his eyes.
He sat down on his chair and took a slice of bred on his plate without saying anything.

“Just like his mother.” Tom joked and ruffled through Bens hair which made me glare at him.
“Good morning, sweetheart. Everything alright?” I asked him and brought the eggs to the table and he shrugged his shoulders while chewing his bred.
“I just really wanted to join dad on his interview today.” he said finally and a smile appeared on my face.
“Oh darling, but you have to go to kindergarden. You’ll join him on a weekend. Alright?” I offered and looked up to Tom for some help but he was too busy trying to make Emilia eat something. She kept opening her mouth when Tom lifted the spoon but closed it as soon as he was about to enter her mouth and laughed in his face, enjoying her game. Tom furrowed his brows, fully concentrated on feeding her. Seeing that scene made me chuckle and I looked back to Ben.
“How does that sound?” I asked again and nudged his shoulder playfully and I could see a glimpse of happieness in his eyes.
“Good, I guess.” he answered but couldn’t hold back a smile. We finished our breakfast and I was dressing Emilia so Tom could get them to the kindergarden. I walked out to the hall with Emilia on my arm and saw Ben infront of the door putting his shoes on.

“Ben, where is your dad?” I asked him with a raised brow and looked around the corner to see if he was there. He just shrugged and kept tying his shoelaces. I walked into the kitchen but he wasn’t there either.
“Tom?” I yelled and was about to walk into the living room when he walk into me.
“Jesus. Sorry baby.” he said and gave Emilia a kiss on her forhead and I was left aside.
“I totally forgot that I was taking the kids!” he said and took Emilia into his arms and I leaned my hands on my hips.
“You better get going. Or you’re gonna be late for the interview.” I warned him and he nodded.
He leaned in to give me a peck on my lips and then stormed off to the front door.

“Bye Mum!”,Ben yelled and waved at me before following his dad out of the door.
After they left I got ready for my own work and leaft our home too.


I came back in the evening, exhausted from being in heels the whole day but happy to be finally home. Tom and I exchanged a few messages but we were too busy to get into detail. He let me know that he’d pick the kids up and that I didn’t need to worry. When I opened the fron door I could hear music from the living room echoing through the house quietly but didn’t think anything of it because Tom usually put music on when he was working on something. I kicked my heels off and closed the door and walked towards the living room, the music getting clearer with every step.

“Come on buddy. You got it.” I heared Tom encourage Ben and when I peeked around the corner I saw the most adorable scene in front of me. Tom and Ben were doing push ups to the song Bring Sally Up while Emilia was sitting on the back of her dad tugging at his hair.
“You good?” Tom laughed and Ben chuckled nodding his head.
“Yeah.”

“Alright. Last one, come on. Let’s see who can do more.” Tom teased Ben and I sneaked up on them to press my foot on Toms back so he couldn’t push up anymore. Meanwhile Ben did another two and the song was over.
“I won!” Ben yelled and I pulled my foot back and clapped excitedly.
“Wow Benny! That was amazing!” I cheered for him and kneeled down so he could hug me peoperly.
“Mom! Did you see that?” he asked while wrapping his arms around my neck and I pulled him closer to me while chuckling.
“I did!” I felt that his shirt was soaked with sweat and widened my eyes.

“Alright. Time to change. We don’t want you to get sick, do we?”

“No!” he yelled and raised his index finger into the air and rushed off to the bathroom.
“Take your clothes off. I’ll be there in a sec.” I called after him and looked down to Tom who was glaring at me.
“Hey.” I greeted him and he snorted while turning over and taking Emilia on his belly.

After I helped Ben take a shower I tugged both of them into bed and closed their door before walking into the living room where Tom was sitting on the couch while scrolling through his phone.
“Hey Moviestar.” I teased him and he growled something under his breath which made me chuckle. I sat down and wrapped my arm around him, pulling him close to me.
“What are you doing?” I asked and tried to peek on his phone.
“I’m trying to controll my social medias. The fans are going nuts.” he said and was typing something.
“Really? Why? What happened?” I asked while pulling away and took my own phone out to see that people tweeted me and tagged me on videos of Tom.

“Jesus. What did you do? Did you fall feom your chair again?” you joked halfheartedly hoping that nothing bad happened.
“No! This is your fault.”

“My?”

“Yes.” he mumbled and I furrowed my brows. When he did not care to elaborate I clicked on one of the videos and my jaw dropped. There he was, my husband who hated to sing in public because he was insecure about it, singing because of what he had promised me. I laid my hand on his shoulder while watching the video and a big smile appeared on my face. I looked up as soon as it ended and cupped his face.

“I love you.” I simply said and he couldn’t surpress a loving smile.
“I love you too.” he answered and I leaned in to give him a quick kiss.
“The fans are loving it!”

“They love you because they know you made me do it.” he said and I chuckled.
“Well I’m your number one fan. I’m their leader. I had to contribute to the fandom somehow.” I joked and he rolled his eyes.

“You gave them two children they freak out about. How is that not enough.”

“Shut up. Would you look at that! They already made gifs and what not.” I said mesmerized while scrolling through Instagram.
“Oh god you’re worse than them.” he sighed and I raised an eyebrow.
“Oh hun, you’d be nothing without us.” I said and closed my phone. I streched my arms and legs, ttying to get rid of the soreness but it wouldn’t get better.
“So, we’re even now?” he asked and I looked up at him.
“Not that you singing is anywhere near the pictures of me climbing in to our house through a window in my sportbra,” I said squinting my eyes and he laughed nervously while scratching the back of his head,“ but yes. We are even. You did what you promised.”
He exhaled deeply and let himself fall back into the couch.

“I’m going to take a shower, since you didn’t let me in the morning.” I said and stood up.
“Can I join?” he said also jumping up but I pushed my palm against his face and he sat back down.

“No!”
