A Ghost at the Back of Your Closet 

In which Framework!Fitz is confused about her motivations, and Jemma is trying, really, she is, but her body is still operating like it thinks he’s the enemy.

“I need a shower,” Daisy groans out, rubbing her hands down her face. She flops back on the seedy motel bed, eyes pointed toward the white, popcorn ceiling in a withering stare. “Why do I even need a shower? We’re in the fucking Matrix, none of this is real. Yet still, I smell. It’s completely unfair.”

Jemma sits at the foot of the bed, inspecting the map they’ve drawn on the wall (it’s not like it’ll matter, once they shut the framework down. What’s a little destruction of private property in the grade scheme of things?). Each of the team’s locations are marked with pushpins, along with lists of all the information they’ve managed to gather on them. It’s not enough, Jemma knows. They need more.

“You do smell a little.”

Hey,” Daisy whines.

Jemma turns back to her, blinking innocently. “What? I said ‘a little’.”

“Whatever.” Daisy pushes off the bed, walks backwards toward the bathroom. She raises an eyebrow at Fitz, who’s sitting on the other bed. “You two gonna be okay without adult supervision for a little while?”

Jemma freezes. She and Fitz, this Fitz—Leo, he’s called here, though she refuses to call him that, even in her head—haven’t been alone together since they finally managed to convince him to come along. She knows what Daisy’s implying, and Jemma wishes she wouldn’t. She’s more than a little uncomfortable with the idea. This isn’t Fitz. Her Fitz. That’s what she tells herself is the problem, anyway.

“Yeah- uh- yeah, we’ll be fine,” Fitz says when she doesn’t speak, when it’s gotten just a little uncomfortable.

Daisy eyes them both, then holds up her hands, retreating to the bathroom.

Jemma doesn’t turn around to look at him. She knows what she’ll see. He’ll be sitting there, looking so much like Fitz but so not, so, so out of place in his posh suit and scarf. Looking like a person who would never set foot in a motel of all places, which he’d voiced when they’d arrived. He’s close, but he’s not Fitz. So she doesn’t look.

Plus, he might be looking back at her. She doesn’t know exactly why, but that’s the last thing she wants.

So she just focuses on the work in front of her. Not that she’ll figure out anything new just by staring at the same slips of paper they have been for the last two days, but still. The effort matters.

He waits until the water is running in the shower before he speaks. His presence alone is stifling, but his voice is something even more jarring.

“Why do you want me back?” he asks, and of all things it’s not what she expected. It confuses her enough that she looks back at him. He’s watching her carefully, thoughtfully, not really looking at her eyes but lower on her face, and it’s so Fitz-like that she wants to cry.

“What?”

“I- He- obviously wasn’t very good to you. Why do you even want him back?”

Her eyebrows draw together, mouth popping open in confusion. “Where are you getting that? Fitz is never anything but good to me.”

“You flinch.”

Hi 🐝 I'm new around here and I really want to read the 'must-read' fanfics can you help me? Thanks

Hi there, nonny, and welcome to our little corner of the internet! I hope you’re having a good time so far.

As for fic recs, I suppose it depends on your definition of must-read. If you’re looking for the fics that everyone knows, I would check out the Sherlock/John tag on AO3 sorted by hits or kudos or bookmarks or comments. The first several pages of each of those should give you an idea of things that most people here have read or at least know about.

If by must-read you’re asking what’s particularly good, that’s harder to say since tastes are so varied. Certainly there are fics to be found via the above links that are well-loved, but there are also plenty of amazing fics that you’ll miss out on if you just stick to what’s the most popular. I don’t want to just give you a list of fics I love, however, because they may not at all be to your tastes, but let me at least rec a few authors whose work I think is a good place for anyone new around here to start and who have all written things that I would personally consider must-reads. I would suggest checking out 

There are certainly plenty more fantastic authors in this fandom who could be included here, but that seems like plenty for a jumping off point.

And of course, with any fics, always check the tags and notes to be sure of what you’re getting into. Hope that helps, and happy reading!

George Washington is the head of one of the five powerful mafia families of New York. With his olive oil business as his front, Washington has built himself an empire and sits comfortably at the top.

When he and his wife Martha discovered that they were unable to have children, the couple resorted to adoption in order to provide Washington a successor. They ended up with four children.

The oldest is Hercules a hot headed man who is expected to take over the family when George decides to step down (or dies). 

Next is John who after spending his childhood knowing there is no way he will ever become Godfather of the family spends his time with drink and women.

Third is Gilbert a young man who wants nothing to do with the family business and joins the war effort at the beginning of the second world war 

And finally the couple’s only daughter is Maria a sheltered girl who George is particularly protective of.

anonymous asked:

do you think ot5 reunion is till the endgame? i have read all your Zayn leaving stunt master posts. most of your predictions have come true. And what do you think of Niall's reply in the latest radio interview? the one that he said he didn't know whether it's ot4 or ot5. i started thinking about this stunt because of you. thank you.

Yes, I think OT5 is the endgame after the hiatus.  I think we were looking at it heading that way in March last year and then things got delayed… yet again. However, we’ve started a new round of reconciliation stuff that looks very promising.  You can check my slow but sure reconciliation narrative tag to see everything.

I think the question to Niall was planned just like the question to Zayn during IDWLF promo was planned, having Louis talk about Pillowtalk during the Brits promo was planned, and having Zayn and Niall briefly interact at the AMAs was planned.  They’re laying the groundwork so that people get used to the idea again.  They’re easing people into it rather than having it be a massive shock.

Of course it doesn’t sound overwhelmingly positive to have Niall say “we’ll have to see, we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it”, but in a situation where they’ve pretended for 2 years that Zayn was on the outs with everyone, they’re not going to just dive back in and say “oh, yeah, it’ll be OT5″.  

In this type of situation where normally someone wouldn’t mention Zayn or OT5 at all, bringing it up is as good as saying “stay tuned for this next”.  It was brought up because they wanted it to be brought up. There’s a change coming in the narrative that they need to convey and it’s not “no, this can never happen”.  As long as the answer’s not outright “no”, it’s as good as “yes” in this case.  They’re getting people thinking about it again on purpose.

I’m really glad to hear that you started wondering about the stunt because of things I said.  I know that there are some fans that won’t ever think twice about it, but if anyone has an open mind to seeing that shady stuff is going down, that’s all for the better.

Wait, what did clam chowder say? (in response to the tags on your ben decter tweets)

from here

it’s been echoing in my mind ever since things started to go south. she seemed a little too smug about the change over (not to mention i’m laughing about HER calling out racism, misogyny and homophobia, hilarious). it struck fear in my heart, now i’m feeling like there’s a reason for that i don’t know man

What's wrong with lala land

well first of all la la land is partially about a white guy trying to save jazz which…..u know……… was invented by black ppl………… 

in general tho, i did think the movie was very pretty and had nice cinematography but it was pretty boring imo. i didn’t think ryan and emma had chemistry and i’m tired of seeing their faces on everything as ~hollywood darlings~ (not to mention that emma stone actively participated in whitewashing when she played a half hawaiian half chinese character in aloha). it’s also obvious that they were cast because they’re everyone’s white faves, even though they CLEARLY can’t sing (i know that there are other musical films where ppl can’t sing but the fact that john legend had to sing city of stars………….well). la la land was just very bland. and it was blatantly pandering to oscar voters right down to the shots lifted straight from old musicals and the “making it big” trope. in other words, it’s nothing new, and we’ve seen it before dozens of times.

moonlight on the other hand absolutely deserved to win. it’s everything la la land is not. i probably don’t have to tell you why it’s so incredible and groundbreaking, i’m sure you can find it all over tumblr.

so no, la la land wasn’t bad, moonlight is just so much better and so much more groundbreaking than a pretty musical full of yts that doesn’t challenge white hollywood or white society at all, or make some of the most marginalized people feel that their voices are being heard.

I feel like Inien calling Thog Dan is also a term of endearment at times. I understand she used it to be a total dickhead for like the whole arc but what if??

Thog is having a really shit day and he’s sitting at the bar just looking down at his hands with the most sullen face. Inien just walks up and is about to insult him and just stops. She legitimately just freezes and looks away not knowing what to do.

She kind of reaches her hand out and pats his back real awkward. “Hey, Cheer up Dan.” And he looks up and grins and just goes “Fuck you.” And then they sit there and both have a drink while they insult each other.

So here’s my aesthetic! I was tagged by the wonderful @thereisnoneedtocallmesir @ask-themaraudersmap @notdoingyourhomeworkweasley @gee-wizard

anonymous asked:

I love a girl ,she was with me last night. I dont know how to tell her that i love her we kissed but i know she dont wants a boyfriend i dont know what to do?

Oh sweetie, I wish I could assure you that things will work out in the end, but sadly that’s not that easy with love. We have to separate ourselves from hesitation and the fear of failure when it comes to love. If you stay silent about your feelings, you’ll end up hurting even more than if you take all your courage and speak up and may experience failure. Regret is the cruelest villain we cross paths with in life.
And I’m sure that you don’t want to lose her and that you are afraid of screwing up what you guys have right now, but sometimes you just have to take a risk or otherwise you will be trapped in the same spot forever.
Unrequited love sucks big times and we always seem to fall in love with people who just won’t share our feelings but really, that’s okay, i promise you. Experiencing unrequited love is what makes shared love so much more special, when you finally find it! I wish you all the luck in the world, that you find that kind of love.

Getting gooey on topic…

Why do people never tag their damn criticism and put them in main tags where we all need to swallow it but when people who is yabba dabba done with that complain about how nitpicky and (what is really bothering tbh) invasive they’ve become they say things like: 

I mean maybe we all wouldn’t be telling y’all to calm down if… you know, y’all didn’t washed the main tags, our dashes and EVEN our own posts with discourse?

I respect Floriana and the things she does in her work and private life.That you don’t like her boyfriend Casey(and yes i know what he did) I totally understand.An you’re right.But tagging Floriana in the tweets that is about him and “how could she actually be his girlfriend” are going a little bit to far.I think that if you are a true fan of her you respect her choices,and the things she does.Sure you don’t always have to agree with it.But please don’t tag her or talk shit about her.
I think that Floriana deserves nothing but the best in this word.And deserves a men who treat her like she’s everything(even tho if that’s casey for).

i don’t think there Is controversy necessarily but i just thought the majority of it involved white men Suppressing their emotions in a conventionally Manly Man way and being applauded for it. also one of the subplots was litr about a teenager trying to figure out how to cheat on one of his two (2) girlfriends. it was just….white man pain x 10 imo. also fuck casey affleck
