i now have a phrase for that

drabble challenge: 103 for Klaroline

103: “Sharing is caring. Now give me your fries.”

Short and sweet…i think lol On FF.

Also, If you want me to do one!

What’s Yours Is Mine, What’s Mine Is Mine!

“Sweetheart, stop looking at me like a hungry lioness.”

Covering his hand with hers and looking deeply into his eyes, Caroline declared, “Klaus, I love you and I care about you, which is why I’m saying this, if you touch my fries again I will have to cut off your hands.”

With all my respect and love to Red the main reason why i’m watching The Blacklist is Ressler and his relationship with Liz (yes yes, you can call me naive, but i still believe in Keenler). Without him i wouldn’t have watched this show, because what happens now is really painful.
I never called Ressler “by-the-book agent” (to be honest i really hate this phrase) because for me he’s much more than that. Yes, he was perfect agent with all this obsession about the rules at the beginning. But now he’s so not that person anymore. His precious miss Keen and work with Red really changed him (we could see this from the first season). And he became absolutelly amazing character. If someone would’ve asked me to describe Ressler in few words i would’ve used Red’s “Man of honor”, because that’s exactly who he is. And that’s the man who should be with Liz.
I have no doubt that Ressler has feelings for her. And i think it’s really difficult for him. Everyone knows that he has principles, but his feelings for Liz force him to break it, to get over himself. And this is making inner conflict - from one side he’s powerless against Liz, from other side - he’s angry at himself that he’s breaking his own principles because of her, that she’s his weakness. I think in some way he’s afraid of his own love for her. I also think that not only Red and Tom know about his feelings for Liz. Samar knows too. Her facial expression when Ressler sent her to Liz’s wedding (found a reason not to go there himself - love him for this) and asked to hug her. And scene with Ressler in Liz’s office after her death when Samar saw him. The way she looked at him and then went away - I think in that moment she realized that she hadn’t any chance with him from the beginning, because he obviously has feelings for Liz. He just will never admit it.
Ressler is really amazing FBI agent and work for him is very important. He can do something really good and meaningful in this life, he can save people and it means a lot for him. But I believe sometimes work also saves him from himself. For example, when he saw Liz’s death. I think in that moment when he saw her dead body he was shocked (like the first stage of grief) but he continued to be FBI agent. He used work as protection for himself, because his conscious refused to accept reality - Liz’s death. When he saw Samar’s breakdown he didn’t want to hug her, he was walking away from her. But inside he knew that she needed some comfort and he knew what he had to do. That’s Ressler - man who always tries to do the right things. But even when he hugged her, he was steping back from her, while she was trying so hard to pull him closer. That’s the difference between his attitude to Samar and to Liz. Because when he saw Liz in The Summer Palace he was the one who initiated the hug (no matter what she did and how much she hurt him) and they both were pulling each other closer.
I’m still waiting for real personal Liz_Ressler conversation. And for me it’s just a crime that they are not together. Too strong chemistry. And Ressler is the best man for Liz, it’s obvious. Yes, he’s perfect FBI agent. We can see it almost in every episode. But inside he’s just a white knight for his princess. She just doesn’t notice him. 

I dunno, the truth is that I’m back to having a hard time right now

I went and published a novella that I knew was going to be niche and not a lot f people would buy

And now a lot of people aren’t buying it

I’m halfway through the initial draft of the sequel and finding it really hard to keep going

Dad dying probably didn’t exactly help matters any, and something like that has fallout that’s probably going to last years

I’ve been back to my pattern of distracting myself with games because otherwise I feel incredibly lost and uncertain about everything

No one’s gonna show up with the magical cure-all, no one is going to have that one perfect phrase that gets me off my ass and back in the game, sales aren’t suddenly going to shoot up on my book, and the next one will probably sell even less

I’m the only factor that decides how I handle this and where I end up, and quite frankly, I’m a shitty factor

Writing Trans Characters


1. Treat them like regular people, like actual human beings, because they are people, not just trans

2. Mention they’re trans at some point, because proper representation is important- it doesn’t have to be a huge reveal, it can just be one sentence, it can be totally offhand

3. Be confident about including trans characters in any setting- there have been trans people since there has been gender, there’s no context in which their presence makes no sense

4. Research things like binders and tucking and hormone therapy if you don’t know anything about them


1. Do that thing where a character’s like “I was Steve… But now call me… Stevette”

2. Include a trans character simply for the purpose of fetishisation

3. Feature unsafe practices like binding with bandages unless it’s really crucial to the plot, somehow

4. Use the phrase “trapped in the wrong body” or outdated terminology like “transsexual”- all of which can be easily researched- because like, honestly, it’s just not correct

My entire life just flashed before my eyes.

I need to stop writing porn on my phone.

My auto-correct now corrects the word “good” to “good boy”, “don’t” is now, “don’t stop, please don’t stop”, and “my” tries to offer up the phrase “my cock in your mouth.”

And a new one I’ve just discovered while attempting to text a family member, “need” is now “need you inside of me”

So every text is now like playing Words With Friends except the game is actually Russian Roulette with the very probable outcome of a fully loaded sex phrase and lemme tell you I have never been so thankful I stopped to look at what I was typing before I hit send.

Shit people have forgotten about the Bush Era:
  • Free Speech Zones, which were a real thing and not a plot element in a particularly ham-handed dystopian novel.
  • The phrase “hidey hole.”
  • Watching a budget surplus become a massive deficit that was bigger than it even looked because the White House was just like, “Okay, we’ll just not put the wars on the books and just ask for more money for those every few months.”
  • The sheer number of times Alberto Gonzalez said, “I don’t recall,” to Congress regarding war crimes and human rights violations.
  • “…now watch this drive.”
  • Mission Accomplished.
  • “The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence,” “yellowcake uranium,” Condoleeza’s “mushroom clouds” fearmongering, and all the other bullshit we were fed to get into Iraq.
  • The President of the United States said so many stupid things that there were one-a-day calendars consisting of an individual quote for each day of the year. They didn’t all have the exact same quotes.

I just want to point out that the expression that Yuri used here was “Ittekimasu” (いってきます).

Translating “Ittekimasu” as “I’m off” is not wrong. It’s a good translation. Still, “Ittekimasu” has a more complete meaning… It implies that you’re leaving, but just for a certain amount of time. That you’re going, but you will come back. It’s the phrase you tell to the people remaining in a place where you’re leaving from to assure them you’re going, but they don’t have to worry because you’ll safely return. “Ittekimasu” is not just a common good-bye. It’s a promise of returning, because the people remaining in the place you’re now leaving from will be waiting for you. It emits the feeling of returning back safely to the place where you belong.

And there’s something else: “Ittekimasu” is not an expression you use when you leave from any place. It must be a place where you spend an important part of your life, where you can say you belong to. It’s connected to a feeling of permanence.

That’s why it’s mostly used in a house, when a family member leaves to go to school, work, etcetera. So, you use “Ittekimasu” when you’re leaving home.

For Yuri, Victor is home, the safe place where he feels he belongs to. And Yuri will always return to Victor. No matter how far he goes.

a list of things cisco ramon has absolutely without a doubt said/done to his beautiful bisexual boyfriend barry allen

-you know what? fight me [and barry just raises an eyebrow really cockily as if to say, for real?] [and cisco gets this huge grin like hes Ready for the challenge] What? You think i cant take u/?? you r  Sorely mistaken my man

Gideon’s Sacrifice by Anonymous for Ceallaigh
Since the loss of Rey, Kylo Ren’s pursuit of these new enemies has been relentless. Planets of no consequence, like Serpindal and Belkadan have gone completely dark from technology - there were no electronic subspace transmissions. Later his Knights of Ren discovered the planets were destroyed by space anomalies, such as the moon crashing into Serpindal, and an overgrowth of insects on Belkadan. His daughter has been left in the care of his mother, Leia. However, in this last visit, New Republic Forces have chosen to arrest him and try him for his crimes against the galaxy from the last war. The war the First Order lost to the Resistance. He was tried by grand jury of the New Republic and convicted of various crimes. His sentence was to be placed in Carbonite stasis by a new protocol that would cause him to be devoid of the Force. Leia refuses to let Kylo Ren surrender to them. Kylo Ren has other plans.

When Kylo Ren kidnaps Rey from Ahch-to, he expects her to be a worthy rival and a pupil. He’s already seen enough to know she’s a girl who can match him in wits and in Force power. But it’s the other things Rey learned during her years of neglect on Jakku that will make all the difference; not only to Kylo but to the other inhabitants of the Finalizer, and perhaps the Galaxy itself.

Blades Crossed by Anonymous for second_chances
Notorious figure skater Kylo Ren has had a rough few years; once a decorated competitor, now it’s hard to say what he’s losing faster, sponsors or partners. With Nationals just six months out and no qualified partner on the horizon, Kylo finds himself begrudgingly skating with college hockey phenom Rey Kenobi, a scrappy forward coming off injured reserve who doesn’t know a lutz from an axel. It’s only for six months, but family drama, a twisted coach, and a budding closeness to his new partner ensure that this will be the most eventful competition season of Kylo’s career.

Elephant in Glass

As denofgeek.com have pointed out, Arwel likes elephants. I thought there were no elephants in TLD, and took that as a bad sign, but they’ve spotted the glass of Eurus’ cell is “Elephant Glass. Shock Proof.”

I’ve already thought the glass might be significant - Eurus’ glass cell (which draws on Silence of the Lambs) reminds me of the phrase ‘Glass closet’ - the name used for gay people and gay relationships in Hollywood, where the insiders know what’s going on, but it’s an open secret - it has not been made public. Is TJLC now in the ‘glass closet’?

Add to that the fact that the glass walls to Eurus’ cell aren’t actually real, apparently, at least in Sherlock’s scene… and the interpretation could be that TJLC is in the glass closet, but the walls aren’t really there. Or, as it looks like the walls do exist later (someone clear that up for me, please - I am so confused) - maybe only some people see the walls? Added to that are the walls in Sherlock’s cell, which are not real, and he’s able to knock them over and go to save John.

I have a feeling the glass walls being there, or not, is an important metaphor. I’m just not sure I understand it.

(Edit - Oh my goodness, just seen, Arwel actually retweeted the denofgeek article where this glass shot is pointed out!)

Writing frustrations no.2 - Sometimes my plans for fics are really great and detailed and sometimes I just get random ideas for little snippets of the fic in the middle of the night and scribble them down before going back to sleep which is only effective about 50% of the time. Because sometimes I’ll have notes like ‘Viktor thinks ____ when ____’ or ‘Yuuri does ____ and Viktor thinks _____’ and I’ll know exactly where they’re supposed to go in the fic and can fit them into my overall plan when I wake up in the morning. But sometimes they’re just random phrases or sentences with no context. For instance let’s take the one I’m trying to figure out right now where one of my late night scribbled ideas for a part of obs&bh is just ‘Yuuri is small and it’s fucking adorable’. Like, come on Kaz, give yourself better context than this so that future-you can actually work out when this part is supposed to happen. When exactly is Viktor supposed to be admiring the fact that Yuuri is smaller than him? Is it when Viktor is watching Yuuri skate? Is it when they’re dancing together at the banquet? Is it when Yuuri is getting fucked up against a wall? We may never know.

Fic title: Too Gay to Function (yes I'm using Mean Girls as a fic title idea)

Oh my god BAHAHA ok. Alright.

I’m sorry this is klance again, because let’s face it, this phrase should be tattooed on Keith’s ass.

So the Paladins are all around 16, hunk is the oldest at 17. So Keith and Lance are 16 and still growing, still developing. Keith proudly finds three dark hairs on his chin. Hunks jaw becomes more defined as the last of his baby fat leaves. Pidge gets taller and starts developing hips. That joke that maybe it’s good that the whole Voltron thing happened because the garrison would have probably caught on by now.

Puberty hits Lance like a freight train.

By the time he’s 18 he has become taller than Shiro, and is only slightly shorter than hunk. He always had broad shoulders, but now his chest has filled in to balance out those shoulders. His legs are still ridiculously long, but they’re less skinny now, and Lance has stopped tripping over them. He struts confidently down the ships halls and Keith catches himself looking at his thighs and hips more than once. His skin is darker now, which only makes his smile look more brilliant.

Keith’s crush has simmered underneath his surface for 2 years. But all denial and professionalism is set ablaze when he finally realises what 2 years of consistent training have done to Lance’s body.

He runs into lance in the showers and… Holy shit. When did lance get abs? When did he get cleavage?? When did he get those delicious little dimples above his butt??!!!

Keith is weak. So weak. And the arguments between them after that become more frequent. Keith instigates them on purpose, looking for any excuse to get into Lance’s space. To bump against him. He stops sparring with Shiro, and starts training more with Lance. His stomach flips when he realises how easily Lance is able to pick him up and toss him through the air. He starts letting him win, just to feel that thrill of Lance hoisting him up onto his hip.

The arguments stop, but the contact becomes more casual. Keith jokes about getting a piggyback ride around the castle, and Lance actually does it. He sneaks up on Keith in the kitchen, wraps his arms around his waist, and picks him off the ground to sway him gently from side to side. Keith squeals.

Lance lifts him bridal style and kicks down his bedroom door one night. The fights completely stop after that.


“I’m just exploring all my options”

You have no options. Voting for a third party candidate is effectively throwing your vote away. It’s a BINARY CHOICE

You are going to get us all killed.
You are going to get us all killed.

You might not remember what happened last time, but I do. Leftists swore up and down an Al Gore Presidency would be “just as bad” as a Bush Presidency. That was the EXACT phrase they used.

“Al Gore is a corpratist,” they said.

“I want to vote for something instead of against something,” they said.

Now, over a decade later, the entire GLOBE is still trying to correct what was done during the Bush administration–global financial collapse, SCOTUS nominees, TWO endless wars, drone strikes, the Patriot Act, No Child Left Behind, Isis, DICK CHEYNEY.

Open your eyes and see how the tide is turning. For the past 10 years, there’s been a steady rise of right-wing ideology and politics. There’s UKIP and the Brexit, France and their damn neo Nazi Marine Le Pen, whatever is happening in Brazil right now. Canada only just ousted a leader who muzzled scientists who spoke about climate change!

And now we have the possibility of Trump. Trump who, as of this moment, has a 38% chance of winning according to Five Thirty Eight. Not 38% of the vote. 38% chance of winning. Those aren’t terrible odds. They’re better odds than rolling a specific number on a die, 16.68%. 

Do you understand that we have a chance to flip the Supreme Court for the first time since the 60’s? 

Remember all that Civil Rights shit from the 60’s? Do you know what happened to it, why it didn’t usher in a new age of equality like MLK’s Dreamers hoped? The Burger Court happened to it. The Burger Court is the conservative-majority Supreme Court that came into power in the backlash following the 60′s. With that Court came a conservative jurisprudence that would last for generations. It was the Burger Court that stymied de-segregation efforts, and created ‘white flight’ by ruling that de-segregation orders couldn’t be extended past district lines. It was the Burger Court that laid the groundwork for Citizens United, when they ruled that corporations could spend money in politics. Everyone was so shocked when SCOTUS ruled corporations are people and money=speech. Well, thank the Burger Court!

Now, for the first time in SEVERAL DECADES there is an opportunity to flip the Supreme Court. We haven’t had a liberal jurisprudence since the 60′s. And look at what’s coming down the pipe–anti trans laws like HB2, Affirmative Action, housing rights, repealing Citizen United, immigration, abortion, gun control, police brutality, climate change, etc. 

I am begging you to vote Hillary. And tell others to vote Hillary. I won’t quibble over whether her policies are better than Trump’s (they objectively are) or whether or not she is a better person than Trump (that’s…more subjective). The SCOTUS nominations should be reason enough. PLEASE don’t make me live through a Trump administration. Please don’t do this again.

Southernisms™ for the Check Please fandom.

This is something that I’ve noticed both on here and in my day to day life. That people assume I’m religious just because I use “religious” phrases in my common day to day speech.

Things like:

“Oh my lord”

“Heave help us”

“Lord willing”

(And many others I just can’t think of them right now)

But I’m not religious. I’m secular. I was just raised in a fairly religious area where these phrases have lost all religious connotations and are simply a part of the local colloquialisms. So Bitty, especially coming from a presumably religious area, probably uses a lot of these too. He wouldn’t stop using them just because he may not identify with Christianity (because of it’s track record of homophobia) but because they are built in to the vernacular of where he was raised. They take on their own new connotations and I think they serve as the basis for the polite, subtle snubs that southern people are apparently so infamous for. Bitty’s passive aggressive tendencies, while they seem to go over the heads of some of the SMH crew, I think would be very blatant to his mother or aunts. 

Elsa: “I just love running through the trees!”

Me, in my head: “C’mon, it’s been a full 30 seconds since the last terrible, obvious ghoul-based pun. Can’t be long now.”

Phantasma: “Me too!”

Me, watching: “Yup, here it comes. They’re gonna have her fly through a tree because she’s a ghost, and because Elsa said the phrase ‘running through the trees.’ It’s a visual gag way too easy and obvious to miss.”

*scene just ends, movie moves on*

Me, watching: “…oh. Wait, really, HB? Really? You didn’t notice that obvious gag? 

I… I never thought I’d say this, but… this time, I’m actually disappointed by the lack of a bad joke.”


Does anyone else think Victor’s coaching fee might be for Yuri not to retire yet until he earns at least 5 medals in total? As his lover, of course he will stay with Yuri without payment, but “as his(your) coach” If I had a dollar for every time that phrase appeared in the anime, I would have about $50.00 right now easily lol Victor is going to make Yuri into a living legend too.

Plus, after what Kenjirou Minami said, “Please don’t retire before I can compete against you,” I don’t think Yuri will just retire after the GPF. He wants to retire after getting at least one gold since that was his goal, but Victor is about to surprise the heck out of him. “You’re not done yet. You’re 24 and already thinking about retirement while you have me a 27 year old figure skater who held out until now. No, you’re skating. You’re not done yet. Love you though. <3”

If we want to see Yuri continue his skating career, then Victor’s “coaching fee” is the last chance we got. Hopefully, Victor has been thinking of this to be the fee.

Mon El’s role

So Supergirl has been very explicitly referencing the election this season. They’re not being even a little subtle. Supergirl’s America has a female president, and she says something about how she can’t believe anyone even voted for the other guy. I think they used the phrase “nasty woman” twice now. Thematically, they’re really trying to make it obvious. 

And now we have the leaders of Daxam saying they need to “make Daxam great again,” with the response that “Daxam was never great.”

Here’s what I think that means thematically, and how I think Mon El factors into this particular message. The United States of Supergirl’s world has some issues, but they’re working specifically on protecting the aliens immigrating there. Between Lena and the president, we have strong female characters in positions of power. We also have Lyra, who is a refugee coming from a bad situation. So in Supergirl’s universe, America is not perfect, but getting better. It’s kind of going down the path that we wish the real US would start following. 

And as for Daxam. After this week’s episode, the parallels between the current administration and Mon El’s parents moved from debatable to explicit. I think that Daxam is meant to represent the worst parts of our country- our past, what we could become under this administration, the growing nationalist mindset of “America first.” We may not have slavery anymore, but we did. And what we do have are undocumented immigrants being paid next to nothing while certain people claim that they’re the ones benefitting from the deal (see: Mon El’s mother talking about how they give their servants a better life). We also have a system where the very privileged benefit from the suffering of the lower and middle class (see: “…letting myself be propped up at the expense of our people”). Daxam is Trump’s America, in short. It is what we could become- what we’re in danger of becoming. 

Which brings me to Mon El’s role to the overall theme here. Mon El isn’t heroic, initially. He was raised in a place where all this inequality was normalized, by parents who taught him that it was okay, where he benefitted from the system. And he did what most people do in that situation: nothing. He chose to turn a blind eye. He was afraid of his parents, afraid of confronting all the problems with his world, afraid of acknowledging what he was doing wrong. In the real flashback where he leaves Daxam, it seems clear that he knows that this is wrong. It also seems clear that he’s never done anything about it. 

So he leaves Daxam, where he is privileged and ignorant and cowardly. He gets to this new place, with all these heroic people around him (see: my earlier post about this). One of the first things that happens is Kara calling him out, personally. This is when he starts being forced to confront what he took part in on Daxam. He moves from the Trump America Metaphor to the optimistic view of America. He doesn’t do a 180 flip or anything- it takes some time to to change and unlearn his upbringing on Daxam. And he makes a lot of mistakes while he’s trying to change, like lying and denying who he was and not listening. He even tries to defend Daxam and “the prince” at first, because he doesn’t want to admit who and what he was. Which was a spoiled, privileged guy who was too afraid to stand up for what was right. 

So what’s the message here? What are they trying to get at? Well, here’s the thing. We’d all like to believe that we’re Kara, standing up for what’s right no matter what. Or that we’re Lena, willing to go against our families if they’re wrong. Or that we’re James, with the drive to do good and the desire to be a hero. Or that we’re Winn, continuing to do what’s right no matter how scared we are. 

The fact of the matter is that not everyone is Kara. Many, many people are Mon El- unwilling to confront their privilege, scared to go against the majority, preferring to deny their part in the oppression of others. We see it all the time, every day, constantly. Mon El, as a written character, is calling people out- “See what you sound like? See what you’re doing? Watch this character make your mistakes, and then consider how you feel.”

On Daxam, like in our country under this administration, we can’t really afford to be bystanders. We can’t afford to be neutral, to refuse to take a stand, to just go on believing that we don’t have to do anything because someone else will. So when Mon El starts trying to change, clumsily and slowly and with a lot of help, here’s what the message is:

It’s not too late to be on the right side of history. It’s not too late to stand up. 

Did anyone else smile during the newest Immersion when Gavin threw the heart and Michael fondly said “like a wet paper towel.” Like, holy shit it was such a funny throwaway phrase but look at where they are now. Their Surgeon Simulator video is so big and they have a show where they play games together and who knew that years later they would simulate doing a heart surgery in real life??? Seriously. Wild.

And other people acknowledging how well they work together and their dynamic. I’m just so happy guys, they have come so far.
