i need her to get a twitter

Hey, sorry to be posting on the meme bot account for this, but this is the biggest audience I’ve got. I need help finding a new home for a lovely kittycat in or around Albuquerque, New Mexico.

A friend of mine has a cat with some problems who needs a new home. She’s a good cat– loves to watch birds out the window, will sit next to you and purr– but she has both bowel and neurological issues and she has trouble using the litterbox. She regularly poops and pees outside of it. She is also very shy and needs someone who will really put in the effort to earn her trust.

I posted a Twitter thread with more information. We’re happy to provide her vet records and any other information that would be helpful for taking care of her.

We’ve been looking into shelters and sanctuaries in and around New Mexico, but very few of them have room for more cats at all, let alone the resources to take in a cat with neurological issues. She really needs a dedicated human (or family of humans!) who can spend the time and effort helping her.

If you know anyone like that, can you please pass this info along to them? You can contact me here, email me (barrlr AT barrl DOT net), @ me on Twitter, etc. We’re able to travel about a day from Albuquerque– so that means we can get to West Texas and anywhere in the 4 corners states– but I worry that going further than that would be extremely stressful for her, so I don’t want to do that unless we literally have no other options.

Thanks!

THE REAL STORY BEHIND THE NAMJOON, WALE, AND VENNY INCIDENT

So long story short an “army” that goes by the name of Venny is pretty good at making celebrities notice bangtan. She got a retweet from wale from an old cover from namjoon and even got tinashe to notice hobi. 

But heres why you SHOULD NOT treat here as the best namjoon stan ever because she is not

*i dont want to bring up the past but a lot of people are comparing her with namjoon because VENNY IS PROBLEMATIC SHE MADE A LOT OF RACIST REMARKS AND NEVER APOLOGIZED OR OWNED UP TO THEM AND EVEN REPEATED THEM UNLIKE NAMJOON*

So basically many armys AND HER claim that the collab happened because of her WHICH I HIGHLY DOUBT BECAUSE ME KNOWING NAMJOON HE WOULD OF SAID SOMETHING HIMSELF

so then venny venn diagram releases these on her twitter (WHICH IS NOW PRIVATE COINCIDENCE I THINK NOT)

Okay but e ven before i knew that this was fake I HIGHLY DOUBTED IT namjoon would of done something himself he has the full capability to dm and message intl armys he has done so before

also she sounded soooooo shady i wasnt buying it

BUT THEN

so then seeing this beef wale assumed namjoon knows venny venn diagram not knowing the real situation

BUT NAMJOON DOESNT KNOW WHO TF THIS PROBLEMATIC SHIT IS
THIS COLLAB DIDNT HAPPEN BECAUSE OF YOU BOO

the fact that some people dont know this AND ARE ACTING LIKE SHE IS THE BEST NAMJOON STAN IS DISGUSTING BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY BEAUTIFUL NAMSTANS OUT THERE NOT THIS LYING SHIT WHO WANTED TO BE NOTICED SO DAMN BAD

I feel really bad for her BECAUSE SHE IS SO PETTY
LIKE YOU ALREADY LIED AND EVERYONE KNOWS STOP TRYNA COVER YOURSELF UP
WE ARE ARMYS
WE ARE DETECTIVES WE WILL FIGURE OUT EVERYTHING

okay but basically i dont know what to do

the whole situation is so petty and stupid, like did this girl REALLY have to do this, being a namjoon stan since pre-debut i wouldnt be this thirsty to get namjoon to notice me, like i dont really know what to do because she already has done it and really cant take it back.

but hey im happy this happened because the twitter memes about her are so funny

peace, love, and support namjoon’s mixtape

*note* so many people are supporting namjoon remember when everyone used to fucking hate him people are giving him so much love i love armys we are amazing we need to protect namjoon 

i feel bad for namjoon bc this is affecting his career, some “armys” are no different from antis using namjoon as a fucking target for everything, i remember him mentioning that he wont feel as if his life has purpose until his music affect the lives of his fans and now when he actually gets to know an intl “army” its about something negative and false accusations against him. Imagine how hard breaking he would feel GREAT START TO HIS SECOND MIXTAPE UGH

LEAVE HIM ALONE

atfirst i thought it was stupid to hate on  venny as what she did was a harmless petty joke but this can really affect namjoon’s image in his rap career as wale knows about this

imagine how ashamed he felt goddamn

so @misspaperjoker made this incredibly hot western!au steve, and I IMMEDIATELY needed to draw a matching bucky!!!

here is mercenary!bucky, gunslinger extraordinaire

I normally don’t but I’m fucking raging because of the hate this girl gets so let’s just all take a moment to appreciate this beautiful human being that was sent down to us from heaven whom we definitely need to protect at all costs from this cruel world and the toxic people. I will continue to support her with all my heart and defend her as she definitely does not deserve all the bullshit people put her through, especially the snakes on twitter hiding behind the fucking screen. I don’t know if saying all the bullshit makes them feel any better or what but I definitely suggest they stop and maybe watch 13 Reasons Why (I’m for real btw) so what if she’s fucking famous bullying is still bullying and it’s hurtful, words hurt, so please just take anger management classes or something and please stop the nasty comments. LOVE ONLY. WE LOVE YOU CAMILA!

We’re very, very sorry we took this long to upload. D: The tweeted version of what went on with this page was that Vale couldn’t find the right expressions when she was initially sketching the page, so that was passed onto Jam, who did an excellent job finishing that part of the process up! Then inking responsibilities were passed between two different artists, and then coloring took a good while because one artist was going through personal troubles, while the other artist he passed it to wasn’t able to get her tablet working for a while. Fun times all around. X_X

Anyway, some peeps over on Twitter made a few guesses on what we now know is St. S’s name would be, though @giancarlovolpe came up with the perfect nickname for it (”St. Bro’s”); I have the feeling Star would refer to this place by that nickname if she ever came across that place. Totally not hinting about what’s gonna happen later down the line. Nope. Not at all. I really need to sleep soon.

It wasn’t supposed to go like this.

The thing about being somewhat of a “celebrity” is that everyone wants a piece of you. And being in the spotlight comes with the expectation that you owe your fans something in return for their support. Kent loves social media. He loves Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, all of it. Which makes it a little easier to fill that expectation, to give his fans something more than just goals and wins. It certainly makes it easier for him than it is for guys like Jack, who seem to break out in hives just thinking about social media.

Kent’s 1.4 million followers on Twitter, 1.2 million followers on Instagram (2.5 million when you combine his account with Kit’s) and over 800K followers on Snapchat make him one of the most followed athletes in the world. He’s by far the most followed hockey player, with more followers than some of the NHL teams themselves. He keeps all three running pretty well. Mainly because he enjoys it, he loves sharing his life with his fans.

This is just a little rant. Ignore me if you will, I just need to get this off my chest and truly don’t mean to offend anyone. So we have a journalist in SA for OL coverage. Great. I don’t expect much until the story comes out months from now and with their so called spoiler lock down I expect it to be false advertising like the S2 one, but her entire twitter has been about Sam since she arrived save for the question someone asked about Cait. MPC is a great charity that  helps so many people. I don’t want to take away from that or it being highlighted for it’s achievements, but when did MPC become more important than OL? I get that we never get any news about the show, but it’s literally all MPC with a little bit of OL thrown in the mix. Why don’t we also hear about how much WCC raised during the T-shirt campaign? If we’re focusing on charities I think both leads should be highlighted for what they do and how much they’ve raised. It just seems like the attention is so skewed with this show. Sorry for the rant but the lack of anything from this production and starz is frustrating and what we do get seems to always sway in one direction rather than be equal. This has been my gripe since Day 1 of watching this show and their promotion of it but it seems to only get worse.

Jared stood there staring at you, his heart sinking into the pit of his stomach. “Wh-what?”

“I’m pregnant.” You sounded annoyed.

“Oh…” His eyes drifted down to your stomach. You could see uncertainty there, and…

You groaned. “It’s yours, you fucking asshole.”

You smacked him in the chest, and made to leave, but he grabbed your wrist and his eyes shot back up. “Wait, what!? But we- It was-”

“I haven’t been with anyone else since I moved back.” You shrugged pulling from his grasp. “I haven’t even dated since coming back.”

“Why?” Now he looked confused.

“You know why.” You answered softly. When he continued to look confused, you rolled your eyes. “Because, I was madly in love with this guy? He’s tall, kind of an idiot at times, married though. But I ignored everything that told me to stay away because he’s the father of my kid?” You glanced down at your stomach. “Kids?”

Reasons why Bl*ck S*ren/KC Returning is Not a Terrible Thing

The news this week was a bit of a blow to a lot of us who aren’t big fans of L*urel L*nce and K*tie C*ssidy. I can’t say I was thrilled to hear it and I don’t know anyone who was (other than LL/KC fans, that is). But that’s not to say that there aren’t some silver linings to this news and I wanted to see if I could weed them out in hopes of lifting some spirits. 

Personally, I think KC returning as an evil version of L*urel is the next best thing to her being gone altogether. Here’s why I think so: 

  • First, the obvious. KC has always done a better job at playing a villain/bitch. It’s where her strength lies and as far back as season 2 (remember that awful scene in Verdant in 2x12 where she was drunk and hating on Thea and Felicity?) I’ve wanted the show to explore that side of L*urel’s character more. And now we get it! 
  • The initials “BS” are a gift in and of itself. 
  • Fans are being given a bit of a “free pass” to hate on the character. Villains, generally, are excluded from the love fest for characters. Sure, the LL/KC fans can try to give us crap for hating on Bl*ck S*ren (and I expect they will) but when the day is done, fans of a show are generally expected to hate on the villains at least a little. (This does not include KC though… still taboo to hate on her… so focus ire on the character instead)
  • You know who else gets a “free pass” to hate on Bl*ck S*ren? Team Arrow. This isn’t something we’ve really gotten to experience before, outside of 5x10 (and gosh, wasn’t that episode fantastic?). More quips like Curtis telling her to shut her mouth. More punches. Which leads me to… 
  • Will BS be a bit of a nemesis for Felicity? Someone actually on the show for Felicity to have a constant beef with? Yes, please. This isn’t about a love triangle, this is about something more primal and I’m here for it, if it happens. 
  • While we can expect the EPs and cast and writers to speak KC’s praises behind the scenes (which they already do anyhow so nothing really changed there), I think it’s safe to say that they have the same “free pass” to shade the character so that could be fun too. 
  • The L*urel that the show has been singing the praises of all season long is still dead. And won’t be returning. 
  • There will not be a love triangle. The history that our Oliver shared with L*urel in this universe is not the same as the history that BS had with her Oliver. So it’s not shared and those feelings will not be transferring. Mostly because Oliver doesn’t love her and he’s in love with Felicity and I expect season 6 will have a committed Olicity relationship. 
  • I know some of us are concerned about redemption and I don’t want to rule it out (especially down the road) but I don’t think it’d mean she’ll get a spot on Team Arrow. MG hinted on Twitter that we don’t need to worry about Dinah going anywhere because of this news so the BC mantle is still very much filled. Plus, I firmly believe redemption would have a lot more to do with OLIVER than it would with BS herself, given the way Arrow tends to handle these sorts of storylines. 
  • She won’t be in every episode. This is crumbs for KC and her fans. Our fave is still the leading lady and that’s not going to change. 

The worst part of this news is the emboldening of her more toxic fans but let’s be honest, they’ve always been rather terrible, even with KC off the show. And it’s not the show’s fault that those fans are terrible. It’s not even KC’s fault (though she could post something calling on her fans to have some decorum… doesn’t have to but it’d be a nice touch). The only people who are at fault for those toxic fans are the toxic fans themselves. So ignore them, don’t give them a platform and keep loving what you love about the show. I have a feeling that season 6 will bring us plenty to enjoy.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has changed my life.

Hi,

I’m Maia and I’m 22 years old. I’m a cancer biology PhD student so my days are pretty academically demanding and sometimes pretty emotional. I am the biggest geek: I was bullied all through school because of it and that left me with shitty self-esteem which did (more or less) repair itself during uni. I’ve loved Harry Potter since I was 7 years old and I am Hermione Granger. (No, seriously, sometimes I quote her without even meaning to). 

I took this photo the day the banners and that famous nest went up at the Palace. I stopped writing my masters dissertation, took the afternoon off and decided I needed to see it. I got a little tingle. [No, I’m not wearing make-up, get over it!].

I didn’t have a ticket until March 2017. However, I am a Ravenclaw (with a lot of Slytherin) so I decided I was going to see it and I was going to see it during the previews! I was on twitter constantly and I finally found someone selling one as their sister could no longer go. She wanted face value and someone who was a big fan to sit with so I fitted the bill and I was going to see Cursed Child on June 25th. 

I had butterflies for WEEKS. 

Safe to say that I LOVED IT, and was sat in the middle of the Grand Circle, which is a great place for first timers as you see everything. As soon as it started I cried because HARRY WAS BACK AND RIGHT THERE. And for the first time in my life I had a character that I could relate to looks even slightly like me in Noma’s Hermione. I cried and cried during the play and when I got home that night. Before this play I wasn’t a big crier, it has changed me. 

A week later I bumped into Sam and Anthony while I was slightly drunk on the street and sort of lost my mind a bit, which should’ve been a tell-tale sign that this play was about to be my next obsession. I mean bloody hell, I am an educated, level-headed young women and I was crying because some boy liked my tweet.

I knew I needed to see the play again. I also knew there were no tickets but I’d read on Twitter that the returns queue was a viable option. We got to the theatre at 5am on the Wednesday after the gala and were lucky! Row F of the stalls (Probably the best seats I’ve sat in during this whole thing).

The play moved me even more the second time and my stage door experience was INSANELY good. This cast are the most generous, brilliant, kind people I’ve been lucky enough to meet. This time I got to meet Noma. I had a speech ready to say to her but then she recognised me from Twitter and knew me by name so I panicked and said nothing useful. (I even had to call my mum afterwards because this shook me so much). Noma I have told you a million times how much I love you but you’ve honestly made me a better, more confident person and I’ll remember that forever. Maybe someday I’ll post a picture the letter I wrote her.

Following this amazing day I went to see the play once more with a friend and then started to build a bit of a twitter friendship group. First I met Fuschia, who is such a brilliant Slytherin who I treasure dearly. Then a girl called Adriana followed me and sounded like she’d been having a shitty week. So I messaged her to say I had access to some tickets and wondered if she wanted to come. For a split second after sending the message I panicked that she would think I was weird and would just say no and unfollow me but we ended up going together. I’m so grateful it worked out because I can’t imagine my life without her now. Adriana then introduced me to Iona who splash landed into my life and has been stirring it up in amazing ways since. 

We then proceeded to start script reading and drinking wine at 3pm. We ended up meeting up with Gemma who we nearly scared off because we were very intoxicated and loud but (thank God) she stayed and is now a beautiful friend. 

This is Adriana hugging a pillar outside the palace at like midnight which sums up October, when I went to see the play 5 times because you’re all fucking insane. 

At some point during this drunken month I met Jack (I think this was we love the spare night), who is the wittiest, loveliest friend now. But I’m still slightly concerned that he came and stayed at my house for the Fantastic Beasts premiere after only meeting me once, piss drunk at stage door. I mean I know I’m ok… 

At the FB premiere we told all the press that we were most excited to see Jeremy Ang Jones and got unnecessarily excited to see the cast even though we’d met them at stage door about 300 times. This was probably the first time the cast recognised us and I realised just how deep I was into this fandom. 

We then picked up Emily, Miriam, Megan, Steph and Anna and somehow acquired the name “Cursed Child Inner Circle” which we promise sounds more cult-like that it actually is! (We now prefer HP Love Crew because this isn’t a cult.)

On December 17th, 2016 we all went to see the play together. It was a ticket buying feat. We had to pool all our skills. Jack came down (JACKS IN TOWNNN) and we all had the BEST day hanging out together. 

When we’re in, we whoop and cheer and clap and try to bring the audience up to our excitement level. The security can’t believe how excited we still look whenever we walk in but we still are so SO excited! 

Since then, Susy B and Manon have joined our group and I’m loving getting to know you two!

Something about Cursed Child had clearly struck a chord with me. This is a genius production- I have honestly cried more than once because the lighting looks so beautiful with the cloaks in the movement sequences and the music brings up emotions which I didn’t know I needed to feel. The fact that the crux of the play is two geeky losers having their first adventure really resonates with me because that’s kinda where I am in my life now. My obsession with the play coincided with me starting my PhD and moving out of my parents house to living with friends. As much as I could’ve watched every play in the West End with the money I’ve spent on this one, it has been so important for me to really get to know these characters. 

More than anything, Scorpius’s character development throughout the play from a fidgety, confused kid to someone who walks up to Rose and asks her out (however much I don’t ship that) is something that I’ve gone through in these 7 months. I’ve met so many new people, allowed myself to get to know them, pushed myself out of my science-y world and allowed myself to really start feeling things. I’ve got a lot of comments from family saying that I’m so outgoing now, people who can’t believe how social I’m being and this play is to thank for that. I’ve been confident enough to go to writing and spoken work workshops (god, I’m even going to a performance workshop this week) and push myself so far out of my comfort zone in ways I never thought I would.

But this is so much due to the amazing friends I’ve made. Every single one of you has made these past few months the best of my life. You’re all so unique and beautiful. I feel honoured to have witnessed us all grow into more unapologetic, geeky fangirls and blessed to see you grow in your lives. I know that I will be able lean on you for support and encouragement as I embark on PhD insanity and I hope you all trust that I will do my best to be just as good of a friend. The love and support that comes out of this group has strengthened me. We all come from different places, we’re different ages, we have different dreams but we’re all on our way up to great things and I’m so excited that I get to see where we all go and live it with you. I can’t believe this play brought us together but I’m so SO glad I have you all now.

I love you CCIC.

#WeMetOnTheInternet

Okay hear me out: the critical role cast has some issues when it comes to lgbt+ representation & interacting with fans.

I know it’s easy to look at fans being upset over Marisha’s comments about Keyleth’s sexuality & think fans are “demanding”, “asking too much”, “intruding on a private game”. These are all accusations I’ve seen in the last 24 hours. It’s important to remember that this has all come up because Marisha was joking about f/f attraction on the stream. She has Keyleth say she wanted to see Vex’s breasts and it spiraled from there. 

Fans are reacting to this because Keyleth being bi/questioning/etc will remove the sting of this conversation. 

Confirming a character as exploring something other than heterosexuality (however badly it’s done) is still better than using other sexualities as a punchline. 

And the critical role cast does this. It does this a lot. Here are a few from the top of my head:

  • the purposeful misgendering of raishan (mainly by sam)
  • grog’s ‘boyfriend’  Kerrek
  •  scanlan’s many, many jokes about sex with men*
  • laura’s whole ‘haha maybe vex will get a gf ;) jk she’s been in love with percy this whole time’
  •  hell, vax’s romance with gilmore started off as liam trying to flirt the price of goods down. to his credit he committed to it for a while, but then he followed the bisexual trope of finding the ‘right’ person of a different sex and choosing them instead.

*sam had been joking about scanlan and men for months before finally discussing the topic seriously on twitter. even then he just said “not 100% heterosexual”. it’s progress, but there’s still a way to go

“but emma, they have good intentions! you have to be patient and respectful of the cast!” my dudes i dont have to respect someone who treats the representation of my community like a novelty shirt they can wear for a day and take off later. i know they’re trying, i know they’re learning, but they still need to apologize when they make a mistake. no one is asking for blood, folks. 

This could have been avoided (or certainly at least reduced) if Marisha hadn’t initially been so evasive on twitter. the unwillingness to confirm anything read as Marisha wanting to continue the trend of joking about lgbt+ representation. it was a dismissal. 

i love Marisha, god knows i defend her until i’m red in the face, but no one gets a universal pass. she’s an adult and she knew she upset people. it wouldn’t have cost her anything to tweet something like “hey i didn’t think about keyleth’s speech last night and i’m sorry that it came across as a cheap joke. i’d like to explore keyleth’s sexuality more & this will take time bc she’s inexperienced. please bear with me as both she and i figure this out”

that’s literally all she needed to do.

the cast struggles when it comes to apologizing to the lgbt+ community. we just need to look at how they handled the situation with j’mon’s misgendering. matt actually used the “dont get mad at your allies” speech, something i know a lot of us (myself included) have heard before. again, mistakes are going to happen. people slip up, we know this, but you still apologize for mistakes. you dont get to say “hm i dont think what i did caused you any harm”. you have to step back and say “oh i upset you? that wasnt my intention and i’m very sorry for that. this is new to me and i hope i will do better in the future”

final thoughts:

-this isn’t a private game anymore. this is a show that many of us pay money to access. that doesn’t give us the right to make demands, but it does give us the right to ask that our sexuality and gender aren’t treated as a joke. it gives us the right to ask a cast member if they were serious when they flirted with the idea of their character not being straight. 

-the problem isn’t that keyleth is questioning. the problem is that the cast has a tendency to joke about these things and then never return to it, as if lgbt+ representation is a tap you can turn on or off. (sam is the only exception i can think of, but again that wasn’t confirmed on screen.) minority groups shouldn’t be treated like this.

-it’s not entitlement to ask that your sexuality isn’t a punchline. it’s not demanding to ask for clarification. it’s not asking too much for an apology. 

if straight actors dont want to seriously consider non-heterosexual orientations, then they dont get to make jokes about sexuality.

BEHIND THE STORY S2 | PART 5 (DRABBLE)

Author: sleepywinchester [prev. deanwinchester-af]

Characters: Jensen, Reader, Jared and Cast Cameos.

Pairings: Jensen x Actress!Reader

Words: 400+ 

A/N: Unusual for me to post a drabble as a part of this series. I know. I just wanted this to happen as an introduction for next part. Was gonna put it as a ‘Twitter Updates’ but got carried away with the writing and before I knew it, *puff* a drabble was born. 

Feedback is very appreciate it <3


The day was programmed to be an extra productive one. Starting with waking up extra early in the morning to take care of your daughter’s needs and made sure she was completely set to spend a day with her grandma’. By the time the clock hit eight o'clock, you already had demolished a thirty minute work out and went over your lines. Getting back to your usual routine gave you, joy and excitement. It was the same routine, the only thing changing was a three old month baby.

After lunch you and Jensen were hanging out by the food truck with Mark, Misha and Jared. You have previously posted a picture on Twitter with the four of them. The fans began to tweet and ask for you to do a Facebook live. You only had to tell the boys about it for them to be on board with the livestream.

“Hey, guys!,” Jensen greeted the fans as they got online.

You were about to peek over Jensen’s shoulder when Lana from staff approached you. Needing to go over the new filming schedule. You watched the boys from the far, talk and greet a couple of fans by their names. After Lana was done letting you know the changes, you went back with the guys.

Jensen looked at you and slightly smiled. “Guys, there’s someone back on set today,” he said while motioning his cell phone in your direction. You peeked over with a big smile on your face.

“Hi!,” you exclaimed, “I’m back!”

“Yep,” Jensen made a funny face.

“Hey,” you playfully pushed him to the side. “You love having me back on set.”

Jensen chuckled with a nod, “I do.”

“We all do,” Misha joined the livestream. “Well - I did, until she pranked me.”

Erica says; ‘First day back and already pranking, Misha? Come, on, Y/N.’

The boys and you laughed at the message from a fan. Misha leaned over Jensen’s phone to whisper; “Exactly, she’s a monster!”.

“No, I am not,” you told him. “I just… missed you Misha.”

Misha scoffed, playing being annoyed, “Strange ways to show it.”

“Ah, stop being so grumpy, Mish,” Jensen said. “Y/N’s prank was hilarious, you have to admit it.”

Your co-worker rolled his eyes, his puckered lips shifting into a smirk. “It was,” he admitted. “I’ll get you someday, don’t worry.” Were Misha’s words before walking away.

Amelia says; ‘What prank did you pulled on Misha?’

“Jensen, Y/N, is time for your scene,” Joshua spoke through Jensen’s walkie-talkie.

“Well, we have to go,” Jensen shrugged. “See ya’ guys next time.”

“See ya’ and Amelia, you’ll see on the gag-reel,” you winked at the camera.

A lot of my friends are teachers, which isn’t surprising, but it’s getting harder and harder to talk about school with them. My bestie is a “twitter teacher,” the one who posts all the fabulous resources and participates in chats about how worksheets are bad and flexible seating is what everyone should be doing. I’m not knocking those people, but she teaches in a very different place than I do. Unlimited resources, motivated students, supportive parents, and administrators who aren’t worried about test scores because the kids automatically take them seriously.

But it’s hard to talk about school. I’ve run out of my yearly supply of paper, yet have one class that it’s not feasible for their computers to be used daily (unfocused, forgetting to charge, no wifi at home so online homework can’t happen - not that it matters because they don’t do homework anyway). I love my kids, but I’m drained from just getting through the day and there are honestly some days where I give them textbook reading and questions because at least they’ll sit quietly if they can listen to music. I love to do hands on, pbl type lessons, but there are days when I’ve broken up three fights outside my room and by the time the kids get to history, trying to engage them in ancient China is fruitless.

I don’t know where I was going with this but I just needed to vent. Her advice to look elsewhere for a job isn’t going to work because I don’t want to leave my school, but when we talk about her fabulous discussions with her students and the support she have to buy any resource she wants (and then to see it on Twitter), is not what I need at the end of my day. I’m just frustrated and I’m over it.

The Contest-Part 16

To celebrate Supernatural’s 15th season, the producers have decided to hold a contest to cast an unknown in a recurring role as Sam’s rumored love interest.  They are doing open casting calls all over the country.  Your best friend Nikki wants to go and she drags you along.

Characters: Jared Padalecki, Reader, Best friend Nikki(OC) Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark Sheppard, PA Emily (OC) Cliff, Other Supernatural cast and crew

Master List

Part 1 (all parts are linked)

The five of us ended up at one of the casinos on the strip.  Don’t ask me which one, because the next day it would all be a blur.  Jensen bought the first round of shots and we toasted the happy couple.  

“I still think you guys are nuts and totally deserve each other.”  He said before downing his shot.

“You call that a toast, Jay?”  I commented with a roll of my eyes. I signaled for the bartender to bring another round.  I raised my glass and everyone followed suit.  “Here’s to Nikki and Misha.  She is officially your problem now.”

Everyone laughed as we downed our shots.  Nikki made a face and gave hers to Misha to finish. “I’d like to remember my wedding night, thank you very much.”

Then a group of fans recognized us and bought us a round.  Things started to get a little fuzzy after that.  I remember Misha reminding us we all had panels in the morning. 

 Jensen, who didn’t have any official duties until the Saturday Night Special the next night, said it was early yet and ordered another round.  I remember Nikki and I dancing with a bunch of fans who sent over a congratulatory round when they found out Nikki and Misha had eloped.

Jared and Misha finally came over and pulled us from the dance floor.  “Come on Dancing Queen, time to go.”  Jared told me as I stumbled into his arms.

“But I’m having funnn!” I giggled.  “Hey Mish, guess what?” I whispered drunkenly.  “You and Nikki got married!”

I don’t remember the ride back to the hotel at all.

Panic Rising

Author’s Note: Okay so this is maybe a bit too long… but I started writing and I just couldn’t stop! It’s aprx. 2000 words

Warnings: A small panic attack, nothing more

*Beep beep beep*

Betty slammed her hand down to silence the alarm and groaned. She sat up and rubbed her temples, unsuccessful in massaging away the dull ache that had persisted through the night. Swinging her legs off the side of her bed, she pushed herself up to a standing position.

“C’mon Betty, it’s just like any other day, you can do this,” the blonde haired girl mumbled to herself. She crossed over to her vanity, began to brush her hair into a tight ponytail, and braced herself for the day ahead.
