i need someone new to meet

TFP: The Phone Call

After we watched the episode my husband and I had two entirely different take aways from that scene and I wanted to address them here. His interpretation was in short that he felt bad for Molly and thought the scene was humiliating for her. He did not think Sherlock loved her and was almost shocked that I did… until I explained my reasoning.

Opens with Eurus setting up the new “case”. Someone is going to die and ““It will be a tragedy, so many days unlived, so many words unsaid, ecetera, ecetera, ecetera”  IMO she was referring to Molly’s death leaving Sherlock with words unsaid. Remember this is Eurus. Her deduction needs to be complex, something all others miss, and devastating to Sherlock. I don’t think deducing that the lonely doctor is in unrequited love with Sherlock meets that criteria by a long shot. But to deduce that Sherlock loves her as well but hasn’t realized it yet DOES.

When he sees the coffin lid and the engraving, the victim becomes clear. Notice the change in his demeanor fom high energy rapid deduction to slow dread. He turned away from the lid, eyes closed in pain looking devastated. His mouth is agape and he breathes so heavily his chest rise is easily seen. His voice cracks on describing Molly as ‘alone’.

He starts the call thinking, like I think most did, that the point was to make him hurt her, seeming to manipulate her much in the way he used to tell her insincerely about her hair and lipstick. He tries to keep it straightforward, business like but rapidly flips between aloof and panicked, the first real crack appearing when she says she is not an experiment,

She says that she can’t say she loves him because it is true. This seems to subtly affect him and he appears touched in a sad way. He might have suspected it but for him to truly know is another thing entirely.

And then she requests HIM to say it first. Now, my husband saw it as a desperation, like a pathetic need to hear him say it as if she would take any morsels he threw her way. Uh, don’t worry, I disabused him of that shit.

They have a complicated past that started with manipulation and since they moved on from that Molly hasn’t gone back. She is repeatedly referred to by other characters as one of the few that can really “see” or “see through” Sherlock and is one of the only ones who can make him apologize. So from her perspective, if she is going to play this game, if she’s going to humiliate herself by saying it (and she knows she can’t say it without meaning it) then she needs to hear him say it first to put them on equal ground. He’s going to have to put his pound of flesh on the table first.

And this, my friends, is where he really starts to crumble. Why? Does he think Molly will believe it if he says it and the fact that he doesn’t will hurt her? As I stated above if she were a casual friend, her hurt would be worth her life and he could easily lie and say them (like he did with Janine). Also I don’t see how a reasonable woman like Molly would take this as an actual admission of love, not from Sherlock under such strange circumstances. See here my friends, much like Molly, HE CAN’T SAY THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE TRUE, even if he is just in this very moment realizing it.

He says it. Twice. The first feeling forced as if pried from his lips with his eyes closed. But the second comes out almost breathlessly, earnestly with a hint of wonder as he looks directly at her though she cannot see him. When she says it back, he collapses in relief and announces to Eurus he won.

But she is from the same mentality of ‘sentiment is a defect found on the losing side” and mocks all his “complicated little emotions” and tells him he did not save her as she was never in any danger from Eurus in the first place.

“What have you done to yourself?” she asks. He has allowed himself to admit he loves Molly and now there will be no going back. He realizes that Eurus knew it even before and set this all up to expose him, make his vulnerable and tear down the man he thinks of himself to be. He is stunned, walking to the coffin lid to confront this new aspect of himself, jaw clearly clenching before carrying it to the coffin where he set it down. The entire time his eyes are on the engraved words, reading them.

“I love you”.

Yes, he now knows. He does. 

He lets out a wry breath, a expression of his disbelieving acceptance and almost reverently slides his hand over top before

Absolutely. Losing. His. Shit.

And this is the one my husband could not refute and actually stopped mid sentence and said “You’re right.” (I also ran through all the significant moments between the two in all prior episodes as a reminder. Surprise, he forgot most of them.)

Sherlock destroys the coffin as he rebels against this thought. He doesn’t want to love. It only leads to pain… illustrated most recently by the agony he and Molly are now in.

It isn’t torture. Its vivisection.

  • Me meeting someone new: I don't know who you are, or where you come from, bUT LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING-
  • Every friend around: oh no
  • Me: *deep breath*
  • Friend: here we go
  • Me: Deaf Spring Awakening is so fucking good and waitress' set should've won a tony and heathers needs to go on Broadway and tuck everlasting needs more love and I need to just hold onto every single cast member of Hamilton forever and keep them safe and warm and also another thing is that the Tonys were good this year but Hamilton won too much stuff and American psychos lighting is so fucking good and the color purple is so damn beautiful and Wicked is just a classic and oh god west side story is better than Romeo and Juliet and les mis is just so tragic and-

Kara,

If you’re mine, if you belong to me with all the fierce loyalty you claim: isn’t it time you called me by my name?

This scoop I’m giving you is one to be shared between friends. No other journalist will hear even a whisper before it’s announced in three days.

Can you keep a secret, Kara?

I’ve been meeting with the President. Olivia has become something of a personal friend, even if she’s a little more obsessed with Supergirl than is seemly for a woman in her position. There’s a new role in government that needs to be filled. While the Secretary of State has their hands full with all the countries on Earth, someone has to start thinking beyond our little globe.

This country has become a home to countless people from other planets, and the beacon that draws them here shows no sign of turning off. Someone has to shape the message that aliens are welcome here, that we need to open our borders, our skies and our hearts. Someone has to oversee the until-now shadowy organizations that deal with all matters alien.

That’s right, your pen pal is about to be named Secretary of Alien Affairs.

There’s going to be a lot of scrutiny - and resistance - but I can finally find out the whole truth about departments I’ve only heard conspiracies about. Have you heard of the DEO? I suspect you have. They’ll now be reporting to me.

Change is coming, and yet again I’ll be leading the charge.

What do you think? Despite your sometimes meandering delivery, I do value your thoughts, Kara.

Now it’s my turn to be fond,

SPL GifmasSupergirl + Alex/Lena for @shatterpath

I wish people had as much compassion for people with personality disorders as they do for shelter pets. I have a chihuahua I adopted from a shelter. Her name is Kaya and she was mistreated by her previous owners. Whenever she meets new people, she gets hostile. She snarls and barks and the hairs on the back of her neck stand up. Sometimes someone will make an abrupt movement and she’ll jump so bad that she pees herself. If she has bonded to you, she’ll get more and more distressed the longer you ignore her. Sometimes she gets spiteful and destroys shoes or toilet paper or stuffed animals just to get your attention. All I have to do is explain to my guests that she was abused, and everyone immediately understands that she needs some extra patience and empathy. While we work towards rehabilitating her, everyone understands that she’ll always need some extra attention and love. Why can’t people behave with that same understanding towards people with personality disorders? So many of us act out in ways that seem hostile or explosive because we’re deeply hurt and afraid. Yet, when we inevitably slip up and hurt someone else on our paths to recovery, it seems like no one wants to understand the context. They just want to call us abusers and write us off as toxic.

brush contact, i: surveillance

on ao3

honestly i’ve wanted to write a spy au for a g e s and finally just sat down and started. the first two chapters are relatively simpler than the last two, so those might take longer to get sorted.

enjoy!!


brush contact (n.) - a brief moment where two agents ‘meet' and quickly exchange information, documents, and/or equipment


Adrien really wishes that his father would inform him when there are new additions to the security detail. There’s something incredibly terrifying about being grabbed by the waist and yanked under a table. It’s more terrifying when it’s not someone you have mentally prepared yourself to be yanked around by.

“Cambric or calico?” he whispers to her.

She shushes him.

He shifts away from her. “Seriously, cambric or calico?”

“Seriously,” she hisses back, “I need you to be quiet. Now isn’t the time to talk about my fashion choices.”

Adrien rolls his eyes and inches closer to the table cloth, ready to run the moment he needs to.

Learning how to trust again after someone let you down is a hard process but it’s worth it when you meet the right people.
—  Things I realized when I couldn’t let people in, part VII
Now is the time to speak up!!!

Hello fellow Girl Meets World fans. If you’re sadden by Girl Meets World getting canceled as much as me, then it is time to speak up. I believe that is important that we have to continue speaking up even when the going gets tough. That means that even when its weeks from now and it all looks bleak, we still have to speak up for Girl Meets World. We have to fight for what we want. That’s why I’m creating a new blog on Tumblr (and possible a Facebook page if someone is willing to help me manage it). On this blog I’ll be posting everything you may need to know to help save Girl Meets World. Campaigns, petitions, and calls for actions will be posted on this blog. Please support this blog by following for future updates so that we can always continue to support Girl Meets World.

And this is how Senju and Yamanaka became friends.

Err, this isn’t my fault, but I was chatting with someone ( @redhothollyberries*point at her*that’s it, her fault, I’m innocent) about poor Hashirama, and his future need of some Yamanaka mental help. But then I remembered the “they are at war, aren’r they?”, and hop a new minicomic. The last of “Naruto and Zombie” (I said something like that every time, didn’t I?) but I have already other ideas for the Uzumaki humor sense tag!

Part1 - Part2

(PS. the blond is just a random Yamanaka that i created for the comic, in the Clan war era I think we meet only Senju, Uchiha and Uzumaki)

So I’ve been thinking about when the right time to post this would be. John and I have been discussing expanding our family since Harlow was a baby. Between work and busy schedules it seemed like it was never going to happen. We discussed having another baby but with my new book coming out soon I couldn’t travel while pregnant. 

So for now that is on hold, but a good friend of mine’s sister was only 16 when she got pregnant and couldn’t take care of her. We discussed it with Harlow and we all came to agree that we will always have our home opened to someone in need. We are now her official adoptive parents! She’s been home with us for almost a month and she lights up every room she walks into. Harlow has a new best friend, and little sister. Meet Asher Lynn Mitchell. <3

cryptic-bane  asked:

MAGNUS HAS BPD

HES SO BPD IMO you’ll pry this headcanon from my cold dead hands…. the facts are just all there

  • childhood trauma
  • he’s super guarded but only because he’s terrified people will hurt him
  • and when he lets someone close he falls for them fast
  • camille used to be his fp and he idealized her in his mind so it took him a long time to see how awful she really was
  • while he’s been really patient with alec i do see him as someone who has a pretty short temper and a tendency to impulsiveness and mood swings
  • the hurt in his eyes when alec snaps at him in 1x12?? that’s me when someone i care for gets mad at me??? it destroys my entire soul
  • he totally impulse shops when he’s feeling shitty
  • he splits on alec in 2x01!!!
  • he’s wary and defensive when he meets new people which is just such a #me thing
  • he’s had centuries to try and get past his need for validation and build his self confidence and identity but it’s still bad sometimes
  • n he’s just super affectionate and wants to love and be loved so much and i !!!! love him!!!!

When i was i little kid i never liked fairytales.I thought that they were boring and silly cause they were always the same,the princess meets her prince, he saves her and they fall immediatly in love.The truth is i couldn’t see myself in any of the fairytales i heard.Well, i couldn’t imagine myself beeing the damsel in disstress and nobody would let me be princess charming, although to begin with i never wanted this role (why be with someone who ALWAYS needs you to save them and can’t accomplish anything alone). But then i heard a new story , the story of Emma and Regina which was told one thousand times in one thousand different ways. Sometimes i  read about a young princess who was brave, kind , forgiving and could kill dragons with her sword and an Evil Queen who was many things but not a heartless monster.Other times i read about a queen who was lonely in a big castle and an orphan who didn’t believe in love.Each version of the story was about both of them/ their journey, it wasn’t about one of them getting the pretty princess to be their wife or about true love kisses while they have barely met.In every version i saw two people fighting but falling slowly in love.So this is my story, the story of how i finally loved fairytales and i want to thank every fanfic writer because they made me believe in the magic of them

An Actual Spark

Pairing: Richard Speight Jr x Reader
Word count: 1,125
Warnings: Drinking  
Request: ( @girl-next-door-writes ) Okay so I have a Rich request for you to consider. You meet at a spn con for the first time as both cast members and there’s a spark but you’re seeing someone, the next time you meet your single but he’s not and then eventual fluffy ending when timing comes together kinda deal. Hope that makes sense, it’s 1:30am and I need sleep
Authors Note: I tinkered a couple things from the request to make the story I had in mind work, but just a few small things.  I hope you like it !

Eleven Pipers Piping

Michonne yawned and rubbed her eyes as she woke up. She felt much better and like herself again. She’d slept on and off most of the previous day and night. She had a hazy memory of someone waking her up sporadically to make her eat some soup, drink some water, and take an ibuprofen.

It was probably Maggie, Michonne thought. She’s such a good friend. I’ll have to thank her later.

As was her custom, Michonne took a moment to gather her thoughts before facing a new workday. She went over what she needed to do that day.

“Let’s see. I have a deposition at nine this morning. That shouldn’t last longer than a couple of hours. Then I have a meeting with the partners. A late lunch with Mike. Then—“

“MOMMY,” a newly familiar voice called.

Michonne shook her head. “No…nope. I cannot still be dreaming. I’m just having flashbacks.”

Displacement behavior is when there are conflicting drives and usually indicates anxiety. So say a dog is meeting a new dog friend…there’s tension in the air.  One dog is stiff and postures when the other dog comes near.  The other dog, torn between responding to these agonistic behaviors and feeling very uncomfortable suddenly drops to the ground scratching his neck.  That’s displacement behavior. You usually see them smelling, marking, scratching etc. It’s basically “Oh god! I’m uncomfortable! What do I do?!”. The other day I was talking to someone who I couldn’t escape from.  All my subtle and bluntly direct approaches that I needed to get back to work went ignored. So I periodically just kept crouching down and interacting with the dogs I had with me at the time, tying my shoes, looking away….  When the person left my coworker was like “that was fascinating. You were offering so much displacement behavior” and it was hilarious.  behavior is the best/worst. 

It’s okay that you didn’t stay, it’s even okay that you meet someone new. I hope she is really good to you. I hope she knows how to make your stomach ache from laughter and that you feel at ease when you’re with her. I hope she makes you feel the way you made me feel. So it’s okay that you’re happy, but it’s not okay that you keep stringing me along, that you keep coming back in and out of my life. I’ll miss you forever, but you need to be entirely gone now. I just hope she doesn’t make you feel the way that you made me feel in the end.
