i probably love her way too much

can you imagine. Library au Keith and hunk work in receiving, processing new shipments/donations and putting books back from the dropoff chute. Pidge is IT support for the library and keeps the servers secure and lightning fast and definitely doesn’t spy on people with her network. Shiro and lance are the receptionists bc Lance thought it would be a good way to meet some smokin bodies and shiro just really loves books okay. Coran owns the building and Allura manages it and takes down all the mouse traps Coran puts up because “they’ve never chewed anything or pooped on the books, Coran!" 

 And there are the usual library shenanigans including but not limited to 

  •  - a closet full of books. no context it’s just there and Coran wants it to stay. 
  •  - squirrels sneaking in through the dropoff chute when the weather gets colder - hunk and keith hunting the squirrels bc they’re not always busy
  • - hunk wanting to be humane only and Keith slowly putting his knife away
  •  - Keith this is a library why do you have a knife
  •  - *squints into the horizon like a war veteran* squirrels
  •  - pidge suggesting that the mice are helping the squirrels
  •  - keith’s war against rodents begins and Allura scrambles to set up cozy hiding spots for them all just out of Keith’s reach
  •  - and then he finds his pistachios MISSING and his pear has been nibbled upon and he mc freaking loses it
  •  - shiro puts this sign up on the dropoff chute very quietly and kindly and he just kind of puffs up knowing that he’s done a Good Deed
  •  - people start obeying the sign and Lance leaves the front doors open so he can hear it every single time it happens. He has a tally chart.
  • - the chute opens one day without anyone shouting down it and Keith runs upstairs and looks around "did you see any squirrels ma'am" 
  • - Lance is dying bc it was him. 
  •  - klance makeouts between the bookshelves 
  • - the dudes from the computer repair shop next door coming in and asking if any of the webcams in the library had mysteriously turned on too 
  • - pidge is a good liar bc obviously she was behind it. 
  •  - hunk and allura putting food for the squirrels on the roof in an attempt to keep them safe from Keith 
  • - hunk and allura realizing that the squirrels are determined, suicidal little shits and so they just put food in the corner of the library or up on the highest bookshelves and hope that their tails will do the dusting for them 
  • - shiro sighing at literally everything as he hand feeds the squirrels 
  • - is he Snow White like how does he do that 
  •  - Keith’s Betrayed Face when he sees shiro schmoozing the squirrels 
  • - *whispers* I thought you loved me 
  • - shiro rolling his eyes so hard he goes and joins a bowling league 
  •  - the dudes from the computer repair shop coming back AGAIN and asking if show tunes had started playing in the library 
  • - pidge must physically remove herself from their presence bc she’s trying very hard not to cackle like an overlord 
  • - Keith brings in a CAT 
  • - allura is horrified and literally clutches her chest 
  •  - Lance falls in love with the cat, feeds it treats and snacks and gives it lazy toys until it gets ULTRA FAT 
  • - Keith comes to the conclusion that his bf sabotaged his cat plan on purpose and cuts off the nookie supply for a month
  •  - worst month of everyone’s lives tbh 
  • - hunk begs Keith to please just fuck Lance again 
  • - a hanjo in the Scientology section at the very least please please please 
  •  - pidge and shiro end up stuck in the weird book closet somehow 
  • - shiro COULD break down the door but that’s just a lot of work 
  • - why break things when you could have a book fight 
  • - they throw a couple hundred paperbacks at each other for 20 minutes 
  •  - pidge builds a throne of books and rules her domicile (400 books and shiro) with cunning and dignity 
  • - until shiro slaps her in the face with a copy of pride and prejudice and the war begins anew 
  • - the library has like three floors and everyone knows to stay out of the left wing of the third floor during lunch breaks bc Lance and Keith honestly don’t care if u see their butts they will not stop 
  • - shiro or hunk lifting pidge onto their shoulders to put more food on the shelves for the squirrels 
  • - the general populace of the town not being weirded out by any of the shenanigans in the library 
  • - it’s just another beautiful day in mr Roger’s neighbourhood for them 
  • - Keith runs by them with a knife in his teeth and a net in his hands? Totally normal

Im so sorry I’m still sick and I’m getting tired and lazy so I just had to bunch up the rest HAHAHA but I hope this helps anon! And you will def not be disappointed in any of these ok they are amazing and beautiful and amazing and everytime I read their stories literally

Probably reading way too much into it, but the fact that dean says “casti…cas” when just moments before he had referred to his own mother, the only person he’s canonically said I love you to, as “mary winchester” really says a lot about his level of familiarity with cas. Obviously mary JUST came back into his life so he’s still adjusting to that new relationship and therefore it makes sense to say her full name, but the fact that he corrected himself in the formality of cas’ name says a lot about how he feels about his best friend. Perhaps he doesn’t need to remember him as “castiel” because castiel is a strange powerful supernatural creature. Cas is his best friend.

Ok so this might be a little far fetched but just hear me out. So in the gif below blue diamond is wearing a dress more so and her hair is flowing freely. She looks gorgeous like always. But in the top photo she’s wearing the ensemble that covers her eyes. ( I don’t know the exact name of the clothing I’m sorry for that) Anyway what’s different about these two is that her face is covered. Obviously there was a big time gap of blue diamond. She probably regenerated. The thing that intrigues me is that her face is now/since “The Answer” her face has been covered. This got me thinking. What if after pink diamond got shattered blue diamond couldn’t stop crying. Makes sense, she loved her. And in result of crying so much she couldn’t let her followers see her that way. As she might’ve thought it showed a sign of weakness. So she regenerated into the new outfit shown above. Idk maybe I’m just looking at things too in depth. I hope this makes sense. ( also I hope this doesn’t upset anyone because I know her ensemble above represents a type of culture)

Sakura's Past

Ok I just need to rant a bit about Sakura and how underrated her backstory is. This is all just a theory.

Obviously it’s not like growing up the way Naruto or Sasuke did, but nevertheless she did not have it easy.

She was bullied from the time she was a toddler. Ruthlessly, enough to leave her sitting in the middle of the street crying. And it’s not unlikely that her forehead was the only thing she was teased about.

She probably was called fat too, told she’s not smart enough to be a shinobi. Do you all remember how she reacted when Sasuke said she was the most improved on their team? She was shocked he said something like that. Yes, because it was Sasuke but also because somebody praised her. Do you remember when she said she hadn’t eaten because she was dieting? She’s smart enough to know that a ninja needs to eat to keep up her strength- she knew she wasn’t allowed to have breakfast that morning either.

Since we don’t know a whole lot about Sakura’s parents; the only real time we see them is in RTN I’ll go by that. In the beginning of the movie everyone’s parents are discussing recommending their kids to Jounin rank. When Sakura asks her parents about it? They just laugh in her face. They don’t take her seriously as a shinobi despite her being the strongest kunoichi, the student of the fifth hokage, her intelligence and medical ninjutsu.

They think of her as a child and treat her like she’s a little girl.

Sakura was bullied, thought poorly of by everyone she knew, and still rose above all her comrades. Worked harder than any of them and achieved more than anyone expected of her.

I’m probably reading into it way too much (what else is new) but god do I love how Jyn smiles because it’s like this weird mix of “what do what are this” and “this feels so foreign to me” and “ok I could maybe get used to this” as the movie progresses and it absolutely breaks my heart that she breaks into that genuine, eye-reaching smile as they enter the shield gates, at the top of the tower on Scarif when Cassian “comes back” for her and in Cassian’s arms on the beach.

Bernie Wolfe Appreciation, day 17

S18 E42 From Bournemouth with Love: Bernie is a kind and attentive human and boss to Morven in this episode. She starts by bringing her tea and a Napoleon cake. She listens to her, offers to tell Hugh Musgrove that Arthur has died. And later she goes to find her outside and talks with her, tries to help.

There were a few soldier references here that I found interesting.

The first thing she says to Morven is “Strong tea and sugar, what every good soldier needs to get them through the day.”

Outside they have this conversation:

M: I hope she doesn’t hurt him.

B: Why would she do that? Hugh was a soldier, he can handle anything.

M: Not all soldiers are strong.

B: No, that’s true. They’re not. I’ve seen lots fall apart when they saw their friends die. But the ones who manage to put themselves together they can get through anything. They wanted to make sense of the loss of all those young lives. They were soldiers with a job to do. They were going to make that job count.

It made me wonder how true this is for Bernie. Considering how sympathetic she is again and again, Bernie is not someone who has no feelings, or is out of touch with them. But I have wondered if she shuts her own feelings off when they overwhelm her / are bigger than she knows what to do with and instead focuses on “functioning.” I wonder if that’s a survival tactic. It would make sense for a soldier (especially one from a military family, if we go with JR’s headcanon). As long as you keep functioning at least you’ll survive, there isn’t always much room for anything else in the field.

It’s what she tries to do in this scene with Morven, to get Morven to focus on functioning, on doing her job, saving lives and making that job count.
It’s what she does with Raf outside too, she tries to make him focus on the job at hand, on functioning.

While there are definitely limits to the usefulness of this strategy, it is in itself not a bad one, and it’s the one she knows. She’s probably needed it herself as a soldier, as a frontline surgeon. And I have to admit that that’s also where I have a lot of sympathy for her.

Post 1 is also where you’ll find the reason for this little series and the disclaimer.

Hey guys! I know a bunch of you probably won’t give two shites, but a simmer I love @simlystrawberry lost her households and her saves after making a bunch of new townies for her game! I know that this is a fear and is a terrifying thought for anyone who plays the sims as much as all of us!

Anyway I amongst several other simmers are going to be making some households to appear as townies for her that way she can rebuild her saves without wasting too much of her time.

I would love if you guys could help out with this as she is so super lovely and this is tragic. Ideally use minimal cc and try to make your sims diverse (and she mentioned she needs more beautiful male sims so lets give her some).

If you do make some townies I’d appreciate if you posted them onto the gallery as well as here on tumblr with the tag #towniesforberry that way we can make it super easy for her to find them all.

I’d love it so much if you guys would help out with this xx please reblog as well!

a fantasy au for @callieroxyweek where calliope gets cursed and has to go to her witch friend roxy for help(who is not an expert at curses but hey she tries her best)

this ends up with them falling in love and completely forgetting about fixing the curse

Okay, but why hasn’t anyone thought of Athena Cykes being closer friends with Armie Buff???

  • Yeah, Apollo was able to bond with Armie over the fact that they both had lost a parent in the same way, but I think Athena could relate to Armie much more. Because unlike Apollo, Athena actually remembers the parent she lost, and probably couldn’t think about it for a long time.
  • She also knows how scary it is to have to step out into the world after being a shut-in for so long, and would be very supportive of Armie every step of the way.
  • Athena grew up around robots, so she and Armie could bond over a love of robots too? Like, imagine Athena taking Armie to the Cosmos space center and introducing her and Sarge to Ponco and Clonco. Or if they’re in space, then Athena could just tell Armie about all the cool things her mom and Aura worked on together, and Armie would be fascinated by it all.
  • Athena introducing Armie to her friends one by one, but out of all of them she gets along with Simon best. She’d go into “Sarge mode” and refer to Simon as “Sergeant Blackquill.” In return, he’d take a liking to the lass and actually refer to her as “Buff-Dono,” both in and outside of court.
  • In relation to the last one, wouldn’t it be cool if Armie acted as Athena’s assistant? She could use Sarge to find evidence in out-of-reach places, and maybe even intimidate people into giving information they need, or to being honest on the stand. Basically Taka 2.0.

IDK I just want people to think about it.

Finally...

It took approximately sixteen hours of our lives to see Sam Maekjong finally stepping up in the game and getting closer to get what should have been his for a long time now. Let’s not mention that he also talked to like ten dozen people before he finally decided he will go all ninja/Assassin’s Creed mode on the old evil man. By the way, Ah Ro had a good and fair point. When she called out Sam Maekjong that he only wants to use her as an excuse to run away was pretty damn right. We know he has sort of a love thing going on for her, but it’s probably not as strong that he would actually give up on everything and go farming with her…
Anyway, I hope starting today we will get closer to him becoming the actual king and settling down into a good conclusion, because it’s just getting too much. 

Though I have to say I really liked the scene between Sam Maekjong and Princess Sookmyung. I wish they wouldn’t be “destined” to marry each other because it just makes everything weird, but I do think they would have a good dynamic and they should help each other out. Also, looking at the preview, that kiss is going to kill me. I guess it runs in the family that they threat the people that they love and also kiss them with force. Amazing… 

Isn’t it funny though how previews can trick people? We all thought something terrible will happen to Hansung but it’s just the typical family drama. I learnt to not trust previews anymore. I wish there would be a Hwarang continuation where they only focus on the real couples, Yeo Wool x Hansung and Ah Ro x Sun Woo (okay maybe Ban Ryu x Soo Ho and Sun Woo x Sam Maekjong can get some special episodes as well). I would even buy a DVD of that. 

Talking about Ah Ro, I’m not sure what Wonhwa really means because this is only the second time I’m watching a historical drama and I’m not so familiar with the term. But reading about it and seeing some responses here on Tumblr, I have high hopes for something good or at least something very interesting happening. I mean it does sound dangerous as Sun Woo was freaking out because of it, but I think that would suit Ah Ro’s character because she has gone through some pretty harsh situations already and every time she showed how caring and smart she is. I mean the fact that even the Queen realizes that way before many of the people in this fandom… 

Ban Ryu though… just because your step-family is made up of snakes, why do you have to act like one? Yes, we can look deeply into why is he acting like this and we can say all sorts of supporting and hopeful things, but let’s be honest, he acted pretty crappy in the past two episodes. His character development is not going on a positive slope anymore. It’s more like a negative slope of a quadratic equation because he is going downhill now. Soo Yeon deserves better. 

What still makes me happy while watching this drama is the developing brotherhood and friendship of the Hwarangs. How they step up for each other (well except for some) and protect each other when time calls it. I also love it so much whenever Ah Ro and Sun Woo have cute scenes together, like when they were by the water and Sun Woo gave a quick kiss to her. I don’t even understand those who say they don’t have a good chemistry and feel she should be with Sam Maekjong… I mean their love is so cute and fuzzy, I literally melt in front of the screen. I also do believe that their love is strong enough to survive that inconvenient kiss from the princess. At least I really hope it, because if their love gets ruined few episodes before the final, I’m not going to survive that.

And now we get to the point where we only have four episodes left. I complain a lot about this drama’s writing in general, but I’m definitely going to miss it. I got too invested in the characters and their love lives that it will be hard not seeing them every week. The cast is just wonderful and I wish they would come together like this in some other dramas. Hwarang may not be perfect, but it definitely did a good job with making people fall for characters or be upset at some, and think about the story even long after the episode was done. But I just hope that the following final four episodes will do more good to the characters and to the plot in general than bad. Because they all deserve a happy ending and I want to see a final cute yet meaningful kiss between Ah Ro and Sun Woo without tearing my heart out. And I really want to see Sam Maekjong getting the throne and every other character finding their own happy endings. 

i can’t believe i totally spaced on faybelle week, please everyone accept my sincerest apologies??

i feel like people don’t talk about 1x13 outside of “haha, the saphael breakup”

it really is more than that and i hardly see the betrayal discussed without involving saphael in some way. you all know that i love saphael but the point of this post is that raphael’s trust was significantly betrayed, he was humiliated, and most importantly put in danger by it, because camille will probably be super pissed about the fact that raphael overthrew her. now raphael – he’s been through a lot of shit, but he trusted simon, he gave simon everything, every resource he had physically environmentally and emotionally, he saved simon and helped the shadowhunters when he absolutely had no obligation to, and he got screwed over. more than likely it hurt him very deeply, and more than likely it will take him a very long time to trust anyone again – especially simon and especially the shadowhunters. 

it’s a very complex situation that had to have been completely devastating and the betrayal needs to be discussed outside of the shipping context more often. i love fics where simon comes back to the hotel and raphael immediately forgives him as much as the next guy, but they are probably not realistic to the situation. we need to stop ignoring raphael’s feelings as an individual in general, but especially when it comes to this. 

sorry for rambling, its just been on my mind a lot

really underappreciated things: the way Sugilite crouches down to be as ‘at Steven’s level’ as possible and asks “Hey Steven, wanna see something cool?” in this very genuine and gentle (comparatively) way. Its such a lovely, big siblingy thing. Sugilite is very much a person who is unapologetically huge and loud but she makes herself as small and gentle as she can to talk to her little bro, and I reckon that’s the only person she’d bother doing that for (and Rose, probably)

anonymous asked:

i have a question. if hinata and rock-kun have kids, how many times would she trip over them?

hhhhmmmmm

I see the “trip” as Rock-kun’s symbol of love.

Rock-kun knows how much Shitnata is obsessed with Naruto that she would push herself to the limits just for him. Rock-kun sensed she has little to no more chakra left to help Naruto in battle so he tripped her to render her unconscious. He wants her to rest because being awake would only endanger her.

The attempt of Rock-kun to “trip” is an act of love for me.

LOL so I guess since Rock-kun and their child Rocknata loves Shitnata very much, they’ll probably trip her everytime they see her because for them, the “trip“ is one way of saying ILY.

So the answer to your question is: “too many to count” since she will be tripping every now and then.

Before I got too sick to do much of anything I finished some of the concepts I did exploring what Nox Mirea, the Archon of Pestilence might look like! There may or may not be some connection between getting sick while drawing Miss Pestilence herself, but eh, it was a little worth it. 

The poor dear got such a raw deal in the game lore, what with her powers or the power of belief or something else killing her at the tender age of 20. She seems like such an inherently tragic figure. :(

I have a number of headcanons for her too, because I love the background Archons way, way, too much, but I’ll put them under the cut so if you don’t want to dredge through my overtly long musings, you don’t have to.

GIF Request: Drinking with their Partner w/ Hellsing


Alucard

Originally posted by rileyjanelle

Alucard really enjoys taking a drink with his partner. Although his is not wine, he will always have a fancy wine for his human partner (otherwise, if they are a vampire, he’ll share the good blood he has). The two are able to chat in his room while casually sipping wine.

Integra

Originally posted by bribooth

Integra is always down for just casually drinking wine now and then, probably over dinner, with her partner. While her partner may get drunk, it is almost impossible for Integra herself to get intoxicated. Nonetheless, the two of them never “party hard.”

Seras

Originally posted by onedimpleproductions

Seras won’t drink but is still happy to bring her partner, even pouring it for them, although she ends up spilling a lot of it, especially at the beginning of the relationship. She does calm down eventually and is able to just sit down with her partner and chat while they drink.

Pip

Originally posted by zyjemymarzeniami

(I just love this GIF) Would totally drink too much, both of them spilling out way too many mushy feelings. Later on, they would be there for each other as the both got sick before Pip suggesting that they go out again since they had such a great time.

Walter

Originally posted by you-bring-me-joy-x

Walter is totally down for drinking and will get the two of them as much alcohol as they want. Like Integra, Walter has some issues getting drunk. He is also a very slow drinker and savors both the drinks and the company for as long as he is able.

So I’m re-uploading this because I’m a fucking idiot who got way too caught up in her own feelings.

As usual.

I also wanna give a very special thank you to @gods-only-child and @thcmoonphase for helping me because I probably would’ve just cried my heart out without them talking me through my little phase.
I love you both so so much and thank you very much, I can’t even begin to stress how important you guys are.

Also, feel free to use these as lockscreens, they’re perfect size 😏

Day 4: Shirley/Lelouch

I have been waiting for this day for forever. The reason why the toss up for who Lelouch really loved during the series was never actually CC or Kallen, and why the person he always loved was Shirley.

To be honest the first time I watched Code Geass I hated Shirley. I didn’t really see anything special in her character and I was in full gear Kallen x Lelouch shipping. It wasn’t until around the third time I watched the show from start to finish that I really started liking Shirley, and not so much Kallen anymore. What I saw in Shirley wasn’t really that she was special in any way, but I realized that she really is probably one of the only normal screentime characters in this show. She was accidentally dragged in to a war that she didn’t understand and none of it was really her fault, and I think that was one of the things that Lelouch loved about her. He hated his normal and boring average life, but CC and Kallen were always amidst too much of the craziness that surrounded his life, and Shirley was a sort of stagnant and human person for him to latch on to. She was the last shred of normalcy in his life, and he always kept her out of danger because of it. 

No matter what, Shirley was the only character who kept Lelouch human up until her death. She and Nunally were the only characters to ever see his genuinely tender moments, and he was only ever very emotional when Shirley was present. At times he would be so sweet to her that it felt like he was a completely different character. 

He felt a great deal of loss when he had to force her to forget, and lost his mind after she died in his arms. When Shirley forgot him he said “I didn’t know until after I lost her, how much she meant to me, how much she saved me”, and when she told him that he must’ve loved her he responded “I don’t know anymore” because for the first time he was feeling lost knowing that Shirley would no longer stand by his side anymore. 

Shirley was the character that kept Lelouch human, and he probably cared about her above everyone else, which is why it was so tragic when he lost her. I think it was one of the most beautiful anime scenes I’ve ever watched.

I’m all for girl power and I love that Kallen and CC can hold their own, but Lelouch is an even stronger character, and is already almost overbearing. With pairs like Lelouch/CC and Lelouch/Kallen it almost feels like both characters are battling each other for a spotlight that you knew Lelouch was going to win every time. Shirley may not be a strong character but in that way she fits well with Lelouch in the way that she is a sort of shadow that make him shine brighter. And there’s nothing that I love more than pairings that make the main character a better person.
