i love lady best friendships so much

Lady Gaga dedicates her Coachella set to friend battling stage 4 cancer

“One of my best friends, Sonja, who has been with me since I was 23 years old, she has metastasized cancer in her lungs and in her brain. It’s stage 4,” she explained. 

“And it’s really hard: it’s hard to watch, it’s hard to witness, it’s hard to know what to say. But I love her so much, and it’s so important that we continue to do research to find a cure.”

“I wrote a song about her on the album, it’s about how me and all of our girlfriends would get together and cry without her when she’s not around, because we love her so much,” she added. “We just want to be strong with her.”

Agents of Shield Season 4 Episode 20 - Brief Impressions

Well these Framework episodes turned out to be epic emotional roller-coasters and episode 20 was no different. Brief impressions:

Well, the minute this conversation was over, it was obvious that Jemma was going to go after Fitz. But bless Daisy’s naive heart that it never struck her. Also, I love the dynamic between these two badass ladies. More on that later.

This evil Fitz gets on my nerves. Sorry, I know the performance is great but I think the evil Fitz story-line may have overstayed its welcome. I was so done with this.

Daisy’s happiness at seeing Trip and then hugging them so enthusiastically was one of the best parts of the episode. I loved their friendship in season 2 and was glad to see them interact here.

Also this:

So many amazing Trip-Daisy moments. Trip’s increasing dismay that he didn’t hook-up with any of these lovely ladies and Daisy’s just like, ‘Nope, didn’t happen.” And honestly, I think Chloe Bennet has amazing chemistry with pretty much every cast member.

Another gem:

Coulson behaving like a little boy who’s in trouble, Daisy’s exasperation and May’s long suffering expression. I loved seeing this version of Coulson, reminded me of season 1 before AoS started to get darker.

This episode had so many painful good-byes and this was the first among them. Seeing Daisy leave Trip behind while also not wanting to tell him that he’s no longer alive in the Real World, so painful and so wonderfully acted by B.J. Britt and Chloe Bennet.

The Philinda was strong in this one. This relationship has had one hell of a build-up and it will be so disappointing if nothing comes of it. Also, Coulson is so gentle with her…

Radcliff’s redemption arc is complete. He brings Fitz to the backdoor and pushes him into it. I didn’t buy that whole ‘intrigued by immortality’ bait. He has nothing left to live for, I saw him still trying to save Fitz, someone he genuinely came to see as a son.

The most painful scene in the entire damn episode and maybe the Framework Pod. From the very beginning, it was obvious that the one person who would have the toughest time getting out was Mack because of Hope. I appreciate that Daisy was honest with him and didn’t try to force or coerce him into going with her. These two were partners in season 3 and became really close and you can see the heartbreak on her face. Bennet and Simmons were so good in this scene.

In other news, AIDA is a real girl now and can also teleport, Yaay! Just what the team needs. Mallory Jensen deserves a shout-out, she has been outstanding this entire season. Every character that she’s had to play, she’s played so well. Every character was so distinct, so kudos to her.

Tbh I think about the side ladies and cry because they deserved so much more and my god they're so pretty and I just want them happy

OKAY NO BUT SAME… I think Oichi probably has the best treatment in the story of the lot of them, so I’m mostly glad that’s at least executed decently (for the most part). I know the love interest is supposed to be the focus of the story, but I wish we got to expand more on a friendship between the MC and the many side ladies that we do get to meet–Kiku, for example, hardly gets any screen time, and she and MC are supposed to be fairly close! I just want more girls positively written into the story, and not just used as side plot devices, y’know? 

It’d also be cool to see more headcanons and stuff on them, but I know they don’t have a lot of content either, so… rip LOL

hogwarts mixed girl gangs

think about the stigma burying the slytherins, think about them getting tripped in the halls for what kind of people theyre assumed to be. think about the hufflepuffs that bandage them up with muggle bandages that have cute designs on them. superheros and flowers and words. think about the hufflepuffs holding their hands all the way to the hospital wing. “its okay to cry if it hurts.” and “its okay to cry even if it doesnt”

think about the slytherins jumping to their defense. think about somebody laughing at the hufflepuffs, the ‘leftover’ kids. think about the slytherins sending a leg locking curse. think about them proudly serving detention. think about the big goofy grin on the hufflepuffs face.

think about ravenclaws showing up to support their gryffindor girls during quidditch matches, putting on bright red lipstick or smudging their cheeks with gold glittery hearts. think about them cheering the loudest, wearing their friends’ house colors as proudly as if it were their own.

think about gryfindors sneaking the ravenclaws out past curfew. think about “you need a break” in whiny tones. think about them making up constellations from the astronomy tower. think about the ravenclaws feeling free because of their friends bravery. “we wont get caught”. think about how they serve the next three detentions with matching smirks.

think about the gryffindor girls and slytherin girls being oh-so wary of one another. think about some girls digging deep to their gryffindor bravery and sitting at the slytherin table for breakfast. think about it becoming a ritual. slytherin table for breakfast, gryffindor for lunch, and wherever else for dinner. think about them making friendship bracelets, mixing the house colors. think about them cheering on both teams from the crowd.

think about girls from all the houses banding together to make each other feel important. always by their sides is another girl from any house. theyre all just best friends and everything is good.

Daily reminder that you are loved, appreciated, and beautiful through and through ❤️ 💛 💚 💙 💜 Send this to 5 others who you couldn't imagine not meeting

😘❤️ so thankful I met you @thepromiseofanend, we’ve been through so much together only for it to strengthen our friendship. I love you lady! You’re definitely my best friend through and through.

i’m sorry, i know this is a little late but let me just say something. 

no. this isn’t just sweet. this is one of the most heartwarming, touching, selfless things i have ever seen. 

they are not just friends. the type of friends who get along so well, who enjoy talking about the same things, who share the same traits, who enjoy doing the same things, who laugh at the same jokes. no.

their relationship runs much much deeper than that.

they are the type of friends where the other is always willing to back the other up, always ready to fight and defend, to protect from ppl who hurt them, to comfort, to give advice to, to support each other’s decisions, to applaud every achievement, to give the warmest hugs, to listen to every story and every problem. it goes on.

the type of friends who are willing to forget themselves to protect the other no matter what.

they love each other so much and we know it. this is true friendship ladies and gentlemen. i can bet my sweet ass that even after all of this, the fame, big bang, everything, they will still have each other, the best of friends till the very end. screw whoever you are who says otherwise. 

we ourselves find it hard to find real friends. people who are sure to stick with you through it all. but seeing it happen to two of the people you admire most in the world is just pure bliss. these are the type of people i hope to emulate. 

 

p.s., you can go to hell @kirubftw

Hi Marc, Another question, could we possibly get some more female friendships on the show? I loved seeing Laurel/Felicity, Nyssa/Laurel and Thea/Felicity start to interact in season 3. If anything, it made me adore these ladies even more and connect them all to team arrow further. Thank you so much and very excited for Season 4. Best of luck to you and your amazing team :)

Yup.  They’re on their way.

I have so much feelings for Misha and Darius. I like the glimpses of the real Misha - not his persona - we see via Darius and how they interact. And I loved your answer to the shipping them question!

They are so obviously close and 100% comfortable with each other, which also demonstrates just how different and unique Misha’s and Jensen’s friendship is. It’s not like Misha’s and Darius’s– there is an intimacy involved with Cockles that stands out so much more when I watch those livestreams. Whereas Misha and Darius are best friends– bickering like two old ladies who never seem to agree … Misha and Jensen are more like an old married couple. They still bicker, but there’s a closeness, a comfort … and there’s something else too. Both relationships are amazing and special, but one is just a little different.

Happy Birthday

In a day like today Monday February 8th a wonderful, courageous and lovely person was born.
My evil twin @krissielee came to this world.

She, ladies and gents, is funny, highly intelligent, gorgeous, creative, supportive, adorable and above all of that, she has an amazing ability to see the best in people.

My dear Krissie, you mean a lot to me. You have helped me in so many ways. You are a sunshine and a really amazing friend. Thank you for your friendship and love.

Thank you for being there when I needed it the most, thank you so much for all the love you have given me and this little fandom. 

You deserve all the best and more, your beautiful heart deserves all the blessings the universe can allow.

I love you.
Happy Birthday Dear!

the kate daniels series seems interesting, but im not totally sold. pls convince me to read these books

honestly i don’t know what i got for you other than riding a giant donkey into battle.

NO uh, it’s super lady positive? also spoilers below. like there’s a big emphasis on Kate having agency and being able to make decisions about her own life, even if they’re potentially the wrong ones. And even when she does fuck up, the narrative is never like ‘oh Kate should have listened to a man/someone older/someone smarter’. It tends to be ‘Kate is Kate, and Kate can only do what Kate can do. If she did something else that was smarter but maybe crueller, or put the greater good over the immediate good, she wouldn’t be Kate anymore.’

Her LI is of the overbearing were-dude stock, but his overprotectiveness of her is constantly challenged both by her and the narrative, and they both grow together in order to accommodate each other? it’s a very mature relationship operating within some of the more familiar tropes of urban fantasy, but with the grossness stripped from it, i love it a lot.

And seriously, the ladies. There’s a focus on female friendship and found families and the different ways you can be a mother. It’s just as important to Kate that she now has a best friend when she’s been alone all her life, as it is for her to have found a lover. She picks up a street kid early in the series, and basically adopts her even though she has zero obligation to do so and her life would be much simpler if she just let it go. Like it would have been so easy for her to have just had a street kid pet for a book and then for the authors to let it go, but the girl actually becomes more and more an important part of Kate’s life, and the relationship helps both Kate and the girl grow positively.

and it’s just so much fun. like there is heavy and dark shit happening a lot, but the series doesn’t mire itself in it. like i have totally cried over some moments, but i also spent like ten minutes laughing last night about this fucking donkey i cannot even explain to you. it doesn’t mire itself in angst, the heavy moments are heavier because there is levity and good things to compare it to. And also more terrifying because like…if Kate was getting shat on all the time and constantly having her life ruined, you would know to expect that? But because to heartbreaking shit is carefully doled out, you can never be entirely sure who’s safe and who might not be.

also the tech vs magic thing is a lot of fun, and so is the history, i love the world building a lot

i really loved this series LMAO lies down
