I’ve had a lot of drawing time at work these past 2 weeks… Here’s a messy comic of the last scene of the 1st ch of @ladyyatexel ’s Song without a name fic where Edgar meets his love at first raging headache haha
Plus ooc bonus panel….
One with kevin trapp where you meet his family and they like you and after the dinner you here how his mom tells him what a perfect couple you are and how much she likes you and tells hin to keep you.
I was ready to meet Kevin’s parents. "I am so nervous, what if they don’t like me? What if the think I am not good enough for you? Omg Kevin. They wont like me? Do I look okay?“ I blurted out. I had so many questions and worries for him. "Calm down baby, they are going to love you. Please stop panicking. Please stop worrying” He reassured me as he ran his hands up and down my shoulders.
“Also you look beauyiful, the jeans you look stunning on you. The blouse looks so good too. Now come on we need to go otherwise mum will moan about us being late. That is one thing you will have to learn about her, she cant deal with us being late.” He pulled me into the car.
“I am so scared” I took a big deep breath in. Kevin ran his hand on my thigh as he calmed me down. “You need to stop panicking. This isn’t going to be scary, just be yourself and you will be so loved” I smiled at him. This calmed me down a little.
We got to Kevin’s parents house. Kevin walked in behind me and he introduced everyone to me. “This is Y/N” Kevin’s mum smiled and greeted me in a hue hug. “It is so nice to finally meet out, I have heard so much about you. I am so happy” She smiled at me. “Thank you for having me here” I smiled.
It was time for dinner. “This looks lovely” I complimented her on the food that was dished out on the table. Kevin smiled as he pulled out the chair for me. “Thank you” I replied as I sat down. He smiled as he placed his hand on my leg. “You have done very well so far” He whispered in my ear.
It was a very peaceful dinner and I really enjoyed all the food. “This tastes amazing” I complimented her on her cooking. “Oh thank you darling, Kevin she is a good one right there. I mean she is complimenting my food already and we have only just met” She replied as I felt my face turning an awfully red colour. “Thanks mum, you should be pleased she’s so fussy” Kevin smirked as he kissed my cheek.
Once we had finished dinner. I helped his mum tidy up. I was trying to do my part and be a good person. It was lovely to be able to mingle in with the family. Even though I was really scared, I was starting to feel right a home with them.
“So Kevin, do you think she is the one for you?” I couldn’t look at Kevin as I was worried what he was going to say. “Yes mum, I think this may be the time you can get your wedding outfit ready” Kevin blushed as he squeezed my arm I felt so warm and my stomach whirled with butterflies.
“Well it has been nice to see you so happy in love Kevin I know it has been a while. I haven’t seen you in this perfect of a relationship ever You are perfect. It makes me smile. Y/N is absolutely perfect and I really like you. It has been lovely to meet you and I have loved it” She gushed. I got up and hugged her.
“Aww that means so much to me. Thankyou. I am very happy with your son. He makes me very happy whenever I am around him” I smiled at her. “Well I am so glad he does make you happy, he better be treating you right” I laughed.
the way they’ve been showing us sana pray is so important
because here you have this 17 year old girl, in her slightly messy room, with her basket ball and her medals and her anatomy poster and the open textbook and the mirror on her desk and all the other things on it as well, all the things that make her sana, just trying to pray. and you see how peaceful she looks, and it’s meant to make the whole process seem so much less….foreign? for the viewers. because finally they get to see. not images that are thrown their way by the media and the internet or the hate speech they’re used to hear. finally, islam and salah are not associated with extremism. finally, they are not portrayed as something to fear
because at the end of the day, ignorance and misconceptions lead to fear, which, as sana pointed out last season, leads to hatred. but when you look at this normal teenage girl, just trying to pray in peace on the bus, and at a party, and in her normal teenage room, you cannot possibly conclude that this is something to be scared of, you cannot possibly conclude that she’s doing something bad, you absolutely cannot conclude that her faith and her attachment to her faith is something to be scared of. by providing us these accurate, realistic images, skam is trying to shift the focus away from the biased images that are usually thrown our way, and that is so, so important
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.
ok this post is getting long, so please click below to continue frEAKING THE FUCK OUT WITH ME
okay so i LOVE mulan okay. as far as i’m concerned it’s a Perfect Movie and doesn’t need any fixing. but i was thinking today and -
- what if mulan didn’t go to war to save her father?
say her father is dead, okay, killed by the previous war. so she’s raised by her mother and grandmother, women who’s complacency and softness has been worn away by necessity. she needs to marry well, for her family’s sake, because her mother has refused the hand of every man who offered. but mulan is even more rough around the edges than before, is educated not only in books (her mother said men wouldn’t find smarts attractive and grandmother pointed out that men aren’t always around and off to school mulan went) but in the sword too, taught to her by her classmate, ping.
mulan is considered in the lower end of the upper class, coming from a family of military men and scholars and successful merchants. ping is near the top, the son or nephew of an advisor to the emperor. his family is very rich and very important, and the reason they become friends is because mulan manages to notice something about him that he’s been hiding from everyone else - he’s going blind.
not totally blind, enough to get around, but blind enough that reading is difficult and swordplay is even worse, although once he has it down he has it. ping is no fool, he’s not weak or bumbling. his eyes just don’t work. so mulan notices and confronts him about it. she promises to keep it a secret, and hey, she’ll even help him with his assignments by reading the books out loud and helping him study. but in return he must teach her the sword, must teach her about military and tactics. he agrees.
ping and mulan become very good friends and there’s some raised eyebrows about it but they are TOO far away in class for it to be inappropriate, so they make tutting sounds and disapproving faces and let it go.
then the draft happens. ping can’t go to war, he won’t survive it. not with his eyesight like it is. so mulan offers him a deal - she’ll go to war for him, in his place. in return, if she survives, he must marry her. if she dies he must take care of her family.
ping can’t make this kind of family decision on his own, so he goes to his mother and tells her everything, about the eyesight and how he’ll die if he goes and mulan’s offer. his mother says he must keep it a secret from his father, but agrees - if mulan fights in her son’s place and survives, a wedding will be arranged. either way, mulan’s family will be taken care of. ping will be sent to live with some cousins in the meanwhile.
“you’re not in love with me, are you?” ping asks, helping mulan saddle her horse in the middle of the night. she scoffs and rolls her eyes, “not even a little. but marrying you will make my family happy, and besides, you’re my best friend,” she says, smiling, “better you than some grabby old man.” he smiles and hugs her and says, “i’m not in love with you either. but don’t die out there. we have a wedding to plan.”
so mulan goes to the camp, pretending to be ping, and she’s a little bit less lost but things still go as they go. she’s educated and trained, so it’s not hard for her to pass as ping. shang is keeping a special eye on her, thinking that she’s the son of an advisor, one of his father’s friends. and he sees how easily she excels, how quick thinking and smart she is, and starts giving her more and more responsibilities. by the time they’re called out, shang considers ping ie mulan to be his right hand man, and possibly his best friend.
he’s also a little bit in love with ping, and he’s long known he’s attracted to both genders, so he watches ping laugh and smile and the crease between his eyes when he frowns and does his best to let his feelings chase away the best soldier he has. every time shang looks at ping his heart clenches and he things to himself: i wish i could have you, i wish this was a time and a place where one man could have another, i wish you were a girl, is wish i was a girl - i wish we could be together. he’s literally a step away from doodling ‘li ping’ with little hearts over his battle plans.
so the battles happen. shang and ping lead their men together, respected and loved. they each get promoted, and promoted, and promoted. it’s been years, and it comes to a point where they’re both generals in their own right. they trust each other, care for each other. and are both secretly in love with the other.
mulan is so conflicted. because she wants this war to end and to go home and settle back into life and become ping’s wife, so she can have an easy life spent studying and learning with her family taken care of. that’s what she’d wanted. but now what she wants is shang, her best friend, her brother in arms, her fellow general. she wishes to be everything to him, aches to be the woman on his arm and in his bed, but knows it’s the one thing she can never be.
then that final battle happens. mulan’s quick thinking saves them all and ends the war - but she’s injured.
shang finds out the ping has been a girl all along. he demands explanations - so she tells him everything, that she traded places with ping to save him, to become his wife.
and the lies should sting the sharpest, but they don’t. she’s still the same person, after all. it’s that she’s promised to another man, for one second he’d thought he might have her, but no. so he agrees not to reveal her but he’s furious and furious at himself for being furious and they’re not the same now, broken and splintered and neither of them know what to do.
the war is over. they leave. mulan returns home, and thanks to her ping is now known as a respected general. she’s done her part and survived, and now she gets her reward - ping’s hand in marriage.
but she sees ping for the first time and flings herself into his arms and starts crying. she tells him everything, because he’s still her friend, her very best friend besides shang, the man whom she lied to and betrayed and loves. and ping listens and takes her by the shoulders and says - i’ll uphold our bargain, if that’s what you want. you can be my pampered wife, you’ve more than earned it. but if you want to go to shang, i won’t blame you. you deserve your happiness.
and mulan goes back and forth, but ultimately she decides she has to try. if shang rejects her she’ll return and marry ping and uphold her family honor. but if shang wants her - he’s not as high up as ping, but he’s high up enough to satisfy her family, and also she would love him and want him if he was no more than a farming peasant so it doesn’t matter much anyway.
she rides to the capitol. she finally meets ping’s father, running into him while looking for shang. “ah mulan,” says this man who was never supposed to know of her until she became his daughter-in-law, “i didn’t expect to see you here. how fortuitous. walk with me.” she does, wary, and that’s how she discovers - he and the emperor had discovered her deception a year in, but at that point she’d already proven herself too skilled and valuable to lose. he tells her that he will uphold his son and wife’s deal and gladly welcome her to his household - but that she’s earned her rank as general, and that he and the emperor have no problem with letting her keep it.
she says thank you, shocked and joyful, but that she has to talk to someone first. “ah, yes, young general li,” he says, eyes twinkling, “i do believe he’s around here somewhere.”
she has no idea how he seems to know everything, but she finally tracks down shang who’s ecstatic to see her and hates himself for it. she confesses - says she loves him, that she’s engaged to ping but willing and able to break this engagement for shang. who is dumbfounded and elated and says yes, of course, finally and forever.
and mulan accepts her rank and marries shang, and they become the literal power battle couple of the general li mulan and general li shang. ping becomes a scholar and marries a very nice young woman who loves reading and is happy to read aloud to her husband with his failing eyes.
Can we talk for a second about how the roles are reversed here because I love this image and the symbolism it harbours. For months, Delphine has been the one to diagnose, examine and comfort Cosima through her illness and treatments. And now suddenly, that’s no longer the case; the patient is now treating the doctor. Look at Delphine, for once she isn’t locked on to Cosima, but rather what is happening to her. It’s almost as if she’s braced for impact. This is a vulnerability we’ve yet to see Delphine display. This is so much more than just an examination of a wound now healed, this is bringing a trauma into dialogue (perhaps for the first time since it happened), this is a revelation of sacrifices and promises and this is a declaration of love, the kind of love that says ‘I’d die for you’, ‘I’d fight for you’, ‘I’d come back for you’.
can we talk about how clarke has to look away after saying she’ll see how special you are like she was embarrassed, like she said too much, like she revealed too much about her feelings, like she said it without even realising it cause it was always in her mind
and bellamy blake the look he gave was so soft and emotional i cant even bellamy blake who earlier today heard his own sister call him a murderer, who never expects anything from anyone and here comes that girls calling him special and god his eyes, bellamy doesn’t believe he is special himslef but that clarke does has him on his fucking knees and he can’t hide his love, motherfucker was about to confess that’s how emotional that line got him
Oh my god I am actually crying. EVERYTHING HAPPENED SO FUCKING FAST. I NEED TO PROCESS THIS OMG. OKAY SO FIRST LET’S TALK ABOUT EMMA IN NEVERLAND. SHE NEARLY FELL OVER BUT SHE’S LIKE “NOPE MY HUSBAND NEEDS ME” AND EVERYONE’S LIKE “WTF” AND SHE’S JUST SAYS “KILLIAN?!” AND THEN SHE FUCKING SHOVES THAT LOST BOY
LIKE NO ONE’S KEEPING HER FROM HER TRUE LOVE AND IN THE BACKGROUND KILLIAN AND TIGER LILY AND FIGHTING THE OTHER BOYS. I MEAN WHO NEEDS SWORDS WHEN YOU’VE GOT HANDS RIGHT?!?! AND THEN THEY OVERPOWER THE LOST BOYS (APPARENTLY 3 VS 20 AND THE 3 WIN) AND THEY COME BACK TO STORYBROOKE IN LIKE TWO MINUTES. IT’S LITERALLY IN-AND-OUT.
SHE’S ALL WORRIED FOR KILLIAN’S WELLBEING AND GIVES BACK THE HOOK AND EVERYTHING AND I’M STILL REELING FROM HOW QUICKLY THAT HAPPENED LIKE IT FEELS LIKE A FUCKING DREAM I CAN’T
AND THEN HE APOLOGISES FOR EVERYTHING AND IS ALL “I SHOULD HAVE NEVER EVEN CONSIDERED RUNNING AWAY” THAT SPEECH OMG IT WAS WHAT I WANTED FOR AGES AND EMMA’S REACTION LIKE “IT’S FINE I FORGIVE YOU I DIDN’T REALLY GIVE YOU TIME TO TALK” AND I WAS LIKE YASS
AND THEN SHE’S LIKE WE GOTTA PATCH YOU UP AND HE’S LIKE “W8 I NEED TO TELL YOU SOMETHING” AND YOU SEE HER APPREHENSION LIKE “WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THIS GUY HE’S HURT AND HE’S PUTTING OFF GETTING BETTER KILLIAN R U OK”
AND FUCKING THEN
HE PULLS OUT THE FUCKING GODDAMN RING, MAKING ME SCREAM LIKE A FUCKING PTERADACTYL AND REGINA AND HENRY ARE MY SPIRIT ANIMALS IN THIS SCENE, NOT WANTING TO BE A THIRD WHEEL
AND THEN THE FUCKING SPEECH THAT WE WERE ALL CHEATED OUT OF IN THE FIRST ENGAGEMENT HAPPENS. YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. THE ROMANTIC SPEECH THAT HAPPENS BEFORE EVERY FUCKING ENGAGEMENT THAT NEEDS TO BE PLANNED AND BEAUTIFUL AND I WAS SCREAMING AND CRYING JUST LIKE EMMA
LOOK AT HOW SHE LOOKS AT HIM THIS IS THE LOOK OF TRUE LOVE PEOPLE PASS IT ON. THIS IS THE LOOK OF HAPPINESS AND I CAN’T EVEN. AND KILLIAN IS LIKE “I WILL ALWAYS BE BY YOUR SIDE NO MATTER WHAT” AND I WAS FUCKING BAWLING AT THIS POINT BECAUSE THIS RIGHT HERE IS MY OTP
AND THEN HE GETS DOWN ON ONE KNEE AND IS LIKE “WILL YOU MARRY ME” AND AT THIS POINT I’M BASICALLY A HOT MESS
AND THEN THE YES HAPPENS
AND YOU SEE THE LITTLE LAUGH OF RELIEF/PURE HAPPINESS THAT HE DOES WHEN SHE SAYS YES AND HER SMILE IS SO WIDE AND BEAUTIFUL AND OML THIS SCENE IS LITERALLY EVERYTHING I EVER WANTED.
I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW I NEEDED THIS EXACT SCENE UNTIL IT HAPPENED. AND I DIDN’T KNOW I NEEDED IT TO HAPPEN IN THIS WAY. THE ANGST IS OVER; THE TRUE LOVE IS BACK; AND CAPTAIN SWAN IS FUCKING ENGAGED WITH TRULY NO WALLS, NO SECRETS THIS TIME AND I CAN’T I’M GOING TO PASS OUT FROM THIS
THIS IS MY OTP. MY FUCKING OTP OVERCOMING THE ODDS AGAIN AND AGAIN. MY OTP GETTING A FUCKING WEDDING AT THE END OF THE SEASON AND MY OTP BEING FUCKING BRILLIANT IN GENERAL IT PAINS ME HOW MUCH I LOVE THEM GUYS I CAN’T.
“Come on, Maggie! Kara and James are already waiting for us!”
Maggie groans from her bedroom and Winn exchanges an arched eyebrow with Alex.
“You alright in there, babe?” Alex calls.
“I can’t find my phone!”
Maggie’s voice is muffled, and Winn leans into Alex.
“She sounds like she’s… is she checking under her bed?”
Alex snorts. “Pfft, no, why would her phone be there?”
“Babe, do you remember if I took it out of my pocket last night before we – “
“I’m calling you right now, hold on!” Alex cuts her off, a blush rising in her face as Winn’s smirk grows.
“Nice work, Danvers,” he mutters, and Alex smacks him lightly, gently, affectionately, on the back of the head, but her own pleased grin gives her away.
She dials Maggie’s number and Maggie appears in her bedroom doorway, head cocked to the side, waiting for the call to go through.
John Legend’s Save Room starts blasting through the apartment from somewhere near the couch, and Maggie bites her lip with wide eyes as Winn awes and Alex blushes and bends to scoop the phone out from between the cushions.
“Babe – “ She says when she glances at it, and Maggie closes her eyes like she’s waiting to be hit, like she’s thinking she’s done something so stupid; like she’s thinking she forgot something, and that something might destroy everything.
Alex stares down at the caller ID picture of herself on Maggie’s phone – a beautiful shot, one that James took at game night a few weeks ago, Alex with her face frozen in laughter, holding Maggie’s hand and leaning into Kara’s shoulder – but that’s not what has her attention, what’s made the blood rush from her face.
The picture isn’t what’s tearing Maggie’s stomach into knots and making Winn stare between them, completely unaware of what’s happening, wondering if he’s going to need to call Supergirl and Guardian.
“I’m sorry, Danvers, I’ll change it, I know it’s probably uncomfortable, I – “
Winn leans over Alex’s shoulder just before her call goes to voicemail. “Maggie, no, that picture’s beautiful, why – oh. Oh.” He stares between them now, and he knows what Maggie’s afraid of. But he also knows Alex, and he knows Maggie has no reason to be apologizing, no reason to be scared.
“No, Maggie, I…” Alex holds up Maggie’s phone numbly, even though the screen’s faded to black by now. “You have my cell number listed as Home.”
Maggie lowers her gaze and licks her lips. “Like I said, Danvers, I’ll change it, I’m sorry, I – “
Alex is across the room before Maggie can say anything else, and she’s lifting her chin up with gentle, gentle fingers. “No. No, no. You’re not reading me right, I… I’m not angry, I’m… I love it, Maggie. That I’m…”
“My home,” Maggie supplies in a soft, tentative, terrified voice, and Alex’s smile has never been more tender.
“Why… why would I be upset about something so… beautiful?”
Maggie shrugs and tries to look away again. “It’s clingy, it’s – “
“No,” Alex corrects gently. “No, it’s not. It’s amazing. You’re amazing. I… I want to be your home, Maggie, I want to give you that. I want to give you everything, because you… you deserve everything. And I… I want to build mine with you. My home. If you want.”
Maggie is silent for the longest of moments, trying desperately not to cry, trying desperately not to weep.
“You getting soft on me, Danvers?”
Alex laughs and it’s the best sound Maggie’s ever heard.
“When you’re done proposing to each other, any chance we can go meet Kara and James at the brunch place? Kara’s blowing up my phone with texts, and I’m pretty sure if we don’t get there soon, she’ll fly in here and forcibly carry us or something. You know how she gets when she’s hungry.”
Alex laughs again but doesn’t turn around, her eyes still locked in Maggie’s. She kisses her knuckles before turning and tossing one arm around Winn’s shoulder and the other around Maggie’s.
“Tell Kara we’ll be there in ten.”
“And to get extra nachos when she inevitably orders the entire left side of the menu.”
“Mmm, I love how well you know my sister.”
“Do you two just… wanna text her yourselves? Or keep… making out… right next to… me… How can you walk while you’re doing that? Is it some kind of special lesbian superpower? Okay you know what, I’ll just be over here.”
Alex tousles Winn’s hair without looking at him as she and Maggie come up for air and press their foreheads together softly.
Being such an obvious third wheel has never left Winn feeling so happy, so peaceful.
Because their joy is infectious.
Because he’s not really a third wheel, because they are his family.
It took Ned a moment to comprehend her words, but when the understanding came, the
darkness left his eyes. “Robert is coming here?” When she nodded, a smile broke across
Catelyn wished she could share his joy. But she had heard the talk in the yards; a
direwolf dead in the snow, a broken antler in its throat. Dread coiled within her like a
snake, but she forced herself to smile at this man she loved, this man who put no faith in
signs. “I knew that would please you,” she said.

You know how there’s an Easter egg in each “Investigations” game where Phoenix shows up in the background? I was tee-heeing about the fact that Edgeworth just happens to talk about couples at that moment in AAI and decided to look into the dialogue in Phoenix’s AAI2 cameo. It did not disappoint.
AAI: この橋を一緒に渡った恋人たちは幸せになるという言い伝えがある。(They say that couples who cross this bridge together will find happiness.)
AAI2: どこかに特別なヒトがいるようにも見えないですし。(I don’t see anyone special around here either.)
It isn’t as striking in the English version, but in the original Japanese, Kay uses the term 特別なヒト - literally “special person.” She isn’t using it in this sense, but it’s often used in the same way as the English “special someone” to refer to a significant other. (If you don’t believe me, trying googling
and see how many love/dating sites pop up.)
So basically both times Phoenix shows up the game practically shouts, “HEY LOOK, THERE’S YOUR BOYFRIEND.”
