i want to be someones karen

While I am always glad to see people recasting Padmé and Leia as Asian women, black women, Latina women, Pacific Islander women, and so on, and I understand why people recast these characters, there’s always a part of me that feels something isn’t right when the recast is not Jewish women. Both of these characters are played by Jewish women, and it always feels to me that a recast of any type should be Jewish women.

And, to address it before it is brought up, black Jewish women exist (Kat Graham, Lisa Bonet, Kali Hawk), Latina Jewish women exist (Rachel Ticotin, Veronica Schneider), Asian Jewish women (Karen David, Romi Dames) exist.

When I look at these things, it often makes me question if I’m looking at something that says that Jewish people aren’t a minority. This isn’t even touching onto Jewishness as an ethnicity or Jewish people as conditionally white, two things that I am not remotely able to speak about as someone who is not Jewish (I’m a Catholic of Filipino descent). Yet, it always feels off to me.

No but what if Tony gets killed in Infinity War and Peter screams and tries to get to him but he gets intercepted by Rhodey or Sam or someone who holds him back and tries to keep him out of danger, and then when he finally stops struggling whoever is holding him back loosens their hold a bit and Peter says, voice hoarse, “Karen. Activate instant kill mode,” and the eyes on his suit narrow into red pinpricks, and whoever was holding him back tries to catch him again but Peter’s too quick and he darts away and just throws himself at Thanos, oh gosh, please no

grabnok-destra  asked:

"Hey there Karen." "My name is Jean." "Well I don't like calling you that so I'm gonna call you Karen." Yeah, it's not a different viewpoint to call someone something they don't want you to call them. You're just an asshole. Same thing with Gender. "I prefer They pronouns." "Well you look like a girl so I'm gonna use She." "Asshole." "WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT!?"

You know what would be a good exchange?
“I’m agender and would rather you call me They”
“What’s agender?”
“It means I don’t identify as any gender. I’m genderless.”
“Well I can’t say I understand, but if you want to be called They then I’ll respect that.”

ITS NOT HARD!!!

dream-and-slash  asked:

So I'm continuing my S7 rewatch and it bugs me how Dean is so bothered by the betrayal and subsequent death of Cas. If a friend betrays you, you're usually more angry and then it eventually goes away. But for Dean, it eats at him. He can't get over it. You know what that sounds like? A combination of a jilted lover and someone who just got his heart broken. Thoughts? (PS i love your meta write ups)

@nerdylittleshit pointed out this excellent comparison of Bobby/Karen v Dean/Cas on another post where I was talking about Bobby knowing about Dean’s feelings for Cas, I’m just going to go a little deeper.

Bobby: In 7x10 Bobby reveals that the worst part wasn’t that Karen died or that he killed her, but that they had a huge fight about him not being able to give him what she wanted and he never got the chance to reconcile with her before she died…

Dean: In 6x21 we have the infamous Dean/Cas scene were Cas asks Dean to stand behind him this ONE time, to prove his words, that he does count him as family, to trust him, but Dean refuses. Dean doesn’t give Cas what he wanted and he ends up dying before he can fix it.

Bobby: “Biggest regret of my life… You’d think it was stabbing her to death but no, I was thinking, we never got to get past this”…

Dean: Cas was also stabbed, before Dean and Cas could get past it:

6x20:

and 7x01:

They never did get to fix it, they did never get past it.

So now we have Dean, who lost Cas, but he suffered not just Cas’s own ‘betrayal’ before, but for which he knows now was all for him and his family, to protect them, as Cas told him, but also how he feels he let Cas down by not supporting him this one time he asked, which lead to all of this, because Cas asked Dean to stand behind him and prove that he was family and he didn’t. 

Which led to his making the final choice to face Raphael alone, to open up purgatory and ending up destroying him. 

Cas explicitly said this was why he did it, and right before Sam stabbed him too, to hammer the point home as it were:

“So, you see, I saved you. You doubted me, fought against me, but I was right all along…”

And when Dean tries to talk him down? He’s already too far gone, but he does reveal why it doesn’t work, why Dean is not able to talk him down, because:

“We were family once… if that means anything to you… please”

But it’s not enough, because he didn’t prove that Cas was family before, when Cas was Cas and Cas now believes that Dean is “just saying it because you’re afraid….”

Originally posted by babylaracroft

The fact that Dean did not support him and rejected him as family in 6x22 is what leads Cas to not be able to get past this now, to let go of the souls and what ultimately leads to his death.

Then we also have the reason WHY Bobby and Cas held back from giving Karen and Cas what they wanted for so long and it was for the same reason:

Bobby: 

Dean


Basically Bobby / Karen is a massive parallel for Dean / Cas. 

If one doesn’t see Bobby as a bitter borderline alcoholic who only finds solace in hunting and his found family of Sam and Dean as a continued parallel for Dean finding solace in hunting and his found family in season 7 and how Bobby only finds peace in the end once he lets go of revenge and his past and allows himself to focus on being happy in himself and move forwards then….

Dear Karen,

If you’re reading this it means I actually worked up the courage to mail it, so good for me. You don’t know me very well but if you get me started I have a tendency to go on and on about how hard the writing is for me. But this, this is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write.

There’s no easy way to say this so I’ll just say it, I met someone. It was an accident, I wasn’t looking for it, it wasn’t on the make, it was a perfect storm. She said one thing, I said another, next thing I knew, I wanted to spend the rest of my life in the middle of that conversation. Now there’s this feeling in my gut she might be the one. She’s completely nuts in a way that makes me smile, highly neurotic with a great deal of maintenance required, she is you, Karen. That’s the good news.

The bad is I don’t know how to be with you right now. And that scares the shit out of me. Because if I’m not with you right now, I have this feeling that we’ll get lost out there. It’s a big, bad world full of twists and turns. And people have a way of blinking and missing the moment. The moment that could have changed everything. I don’t know what’s going on with us, and I can’t tell you why you should waste the leap of faith on the likes of me, but damn you smell good. Like home. And you make excellent coffee. That’s got to count for something right?

Call me.

Unfaithfully yours,

Hank Moody.

SIMON MINTER IMAGINE- 6 YEARS TOO MANY

Part 1

—-

I’m in love with Simon but recently things changed. Not with me, with him. He’s still the same gamer who stays up all night editing and playing games, but now he’s cold and quiet. Too quiet and I’m no longer having to shout at him to be quiet so I can sleep because he’s already in bed and turned towards the wall.

He’s distanced himself.

But then he snapped back and I didn’t know how to react. I was happy to see him being back to himself but I didn’t know how to feel because I still wasn’t close to him.

“Si I’m getting up really early tomorrow.” I whisper as I stand in the doorway to the bathroom in only a sleep shirt and my pants.

“Okay.”

“I mean I’m getting up early and wanted to know if you would join me?”

“I don’t know. I mean I have to edit and won’t be in bed for about another three hours.”

“Okay well I don’t wanna interrupt so I’m gonna go stay in the guest room. Night Si.” I walk over to the bed and grab my phone and pillow.

“I’ll see you tomorrow.” He calls after me and feel nauseous as the words leave his mouth. No affection or emotion.

Just apathy.

“So why on earth is there a suitcase, a girly one thats yours, by the door downstairs?”

“JJ not now.” I whisper as he follows me into the other room.

“No we’re doing this now because you’re dating Simon and he didn’t say you were leaving.”

“Cause he doesn’t know. I’m going to go stay with some friends in Brighton. I just want to be by the beach. He’ll figure out soon enough.”

“Why don’t you just tell him?”

“Because have you seen him? He doesn’t kiss me anymore and he doesn’t touch me. He doesn’t act like he’s mine JJ. He’s been like this since the New Years party and I’m trying but I can’t keep grasping onto the little bit he gives me. I told him I’d be in the guest room and he just said okay see you tomorrow.”

“Jide, I know you know. I know that you know the girl he’s been seeing and it’s nice that you’re trying to salvage my relationship, but he’s bored of me. Six years too many.”

Six years and he was bored. How could I mix it up like that new girl could? Simon and I were old news and nobody wants old news after a certain point.

“My stuff is all out of here and I have more of my suitcases in the car. So when I’m gone tomorrow morning don’t say anything. Please.”

“No that’s not what you’re doing.”

“JJ I’ve known you and Simon for years. We’ve been the best of friends for years and maybe it’s just time Simon and I aren’t. Just please do me a favor and please don’t tell him what I’m up to. I already blocked him on social media and I’m changing my number. I just need time and I have none when I’m constantly worrying about what he’s doing. You kept his secret so please repay me by keeping mine.”

“If that’s what you want.”

“It’s what I need.”

____\\____

I soon put the pieces together when I had time to myself. Simon because distant and quiet when it first happened. He was guilty and he felt bad for now liking someone else. Then he stopped feeling guilty and I think that’s when I needed to go. And that’s why I did go. That’s why I’m in Brighton in my own flat near my friends who support me and make me feel wanted.

But all good things must come to an end.

“You know JJ can’t keep a secret.”

Words like knives.

“He kept yours for pretty long. Probably wouldn’t have told me if I didn’t figure it out myself.” I uncross my arms over my chest while hastily going to walk away.

“Karen can you handle the store if I head home for the day.” I shout to the back of the cafe and she nods.

Who the fuck let him come down to my place of work.

“Simon I’m not gonna spend my time talking to you so walk and talk. I have other places to be and other people to see.” I motion for him to get on with it once I have my keys and bag.

“You left without notice.”

“And you cheated on me and then continued seeing her.” I snap and he looks shocked.

“Six years of dating. I was waiting for the ring Simon. I was the idiot thinking soon you’d propose to me and boy was I wrong. Simon I’ve known you for years and been by your side for so long and you cheated on me. You didn’t even just do it once, you kept seeing her and you thought I wouldn’t know or that our friend wouldn’t tell me. You had your mates keeping it a secret. That’s low Simon. Now I go home and my parents ask where you are? I tell them that you can’t make it because if I told them we were over I don’t know if I’d be able to see their faces. They’d ask questions and I’d have to tell them that you cheated on me. So instead I lie and I tell them that you’re busy with work and can’t wait to see them.”

“Simon I waited thinking you’d propose to me this year. That after New Years we’d be engaged but instead I’m single. But you’re not because you cheated and decided to still see that home wrecker. The bitch who stayed with you and slept with you knowing you had a devoted girlfriend of six years at home waiting for you. I’m sorry but I’m sick of waiting for you. So go Simon, you got to see what you wanted. You saw the girl fawning over you and begging for you to have just been better. However I’m done being that for you because I’m happier now than I was with you because now I don’t have to worry if my famous boyfriend is gonna go fuck another girl.” I finally silence myself after putting on quite the show for the people of Brighton.

“And tell JJ that he could’ve kept his mouth shut. That I didn’t need this because I was just settling in to my new home.”

“I’m sorry.”

“You’re not sorry Simon. You’re just sorry you got caught. There’s a difference.”

“And Gia or whatever her name is can have you because I guess she had something you wanted that I didn’t have.”

“She wasn’t looking for a ring. That’s what she had.”

“Oh so after six years you don’t think she’ll also want one? She will and I’m assuming she’ll want a much bigger one and one much sooner. All I wanted was the confirmation that you did love me and that you did want to have a family with me. That’s what the ring meant for me. It meant confirming those six years and confirming that we’d be together forever. You just couldn’t do that. Now you’re here and I don’t know why.” I take a huge breath while holding my hands at my side.

“Just… Why are you here Simon?” I ask as tears start to well up.

“I don’t know. Everyone is asking for you. You stopped social media and changed your number. The only person who knew where you were, was JJ and everyone wanted to know where you where.”

“But did you?” I ask and he looks down while avoiding eye contact.

“I don’t know why I’m here. Just forget that I came here.”

“No I want to know why you’re here? Six years together Simon. Why are you here?”

“She’s pregnant and I don’t know what to do. With every issue that came up, I came to you and I’m used to going to you. I’m panicking. I can’t be a dad. I can’t, especially now.”

And that’s when it stopped.

The world stopped when he said she was pregnant.

“Simon I’m sorry I can’t help you with that. You want your ex girlfriend to help you become a dad? When you were supposed to be my husband and the father of my kids?”

Pregnant part 2 | Zach Dempsey

Read part 1 here 👉🏽https://issafandom.tumblr.com/post/160276487170/pregnant-zach-dempsey

—-

The past few months had been draining for you. Between juggling school, pregnancy and hiding it all from your friends and family. You just felt like you had the weight of the world on your shoulders.

Although, some of the weight would soon be lifted. You and Zach had decided to tell your family today, together. You had invited Zach’s mum (Karen) and sister (May) over for dinner, not expecting them to be over the moon and throw you a parade, but, just supportive.

“You are so lucky I love you” Zach teased as he held your hair up and rubbed your back whilst you threw up into the toilet.

“Urm- don’t act like I’ve never done this for you before” you clapped back, flushing the toilet and standing to your feet. You walked over to the sink and began to brush your teeth. Zach stood behind you, his eyebrows knitted together in confusion.

“When?” He inquired

“Bryce’s house and about 2 wine coolers later” you told him “You know you can’t handle your liquor”

”..yeah” Zach snapped, sounding a little irritated “ but that’s because they we’re strawberry”

“Light weight” you sang as you entered your bedroom, him right behind you. Zach had gotten a little clingy since you told him you we’re pregnant, you tried not to pay attention to it, maybe it was just a protective thing. You sat on your bed and unplugged your phone from your charger and began scrolling though Instagram.

Your stomached churned a little so you sat up as you bought you would have to suddenly dash to the bathroom again. The feeling soon passed. False alarm. “I don’t get it” you randomly announce

“Don’t get what?”

I mean, why do they call it morning sickness if it’s all day, every-fucking- day?” You asked, your eyes still glued to the screen of your phone.

“I don’t know babe…Maybe one of these could explain it to you” You looked up and noticed Zach holding a bunch of books in his hands.

“Here” he chucked one to you. The tile read ‘What to expect when your expecting’

“Holy shit babe, you know how much I love to read” you said sarcastically

"Ha. Ha. Ha” Zach fake chucked as he sat besides you. “Look, I know it’s early days but we need all the help we can get”

“I know” you winged, resting your head on his chest, “It just seems like one more book I need to cram into my head?”

"You’ll like it” he assured you “it has pictures and a little colouring in section at the back..”

You giggled as you hit him on his arm playfully “thank you, I love you”

"I love you more” Zach declared You both lingered in each others eyes for a while, prompting Zach to make the first move. He caressed your cheek and pulled you into his lips. He was very dominating, gently forcing you onto your back and before you knew it his body was hovering over yours. Zach’s hands began to roam up and down your leg, gently squeezing your ass as he continued to kiss you.

“Zach?” You murmured, still attached to his lips.

"What?”

You gently pushed him away, causing him to bite down on your bottom lip as you did so.

"You need to slow down, that’s how we ended up in this situation, Remember?”

He grunted “Fine. Whatever” ….

Zach’s mum and sister had arrived a little earlier than expected and offered to help set out the table. You sat in the living room with May, letting her braid your hair as you watched TV. When the table was set you all came together and sat around it. And It was nice to see everyone talking and getting along and acting as a family. Zach then tugged on your arm, snapping you out of your trance to give him your undivided attention.

“Maybe- Maybe we shouldn’t tell them today” Zach whispered to you

"Are you pussy'ing out Zach Dempsey?” You teased

“Im not. It’s just. My mums not in a good mood”

You looked across the table and over to Karen. She had a huge smile plastered across her face and engaging in a convocation with your parents.

“I can tell” he added

You shrugged “she seems happy”

“Don’t be fooled” Zach muttered “She always does. She’s good at that”

"Zach” you warned “Man up, cos we’re telling them. To-day”

He sunk lower in his seat and began to tap his left foot (nervous habit).

"What are you two whispering about?” you mum asks, catching you both off guard.

“Nothing important” you tell her, causing her to just smile blankly at you. An awkward silence fell over the table as everyone began to tuck in again. Maybe this was the perfect opportunity to get it off your chest.

You sat upright “Actually..I, well Zach and I wanted to tell you guys something”

Your mum looked to your dad with concern, then back to you “What is it?”

"I’m pregnant” -was what you said, in your head. With both your parents staring at you, you just couldn’t seem to get the words out. You gently kicked Zach’s ankle as a cry for help.

Zach cleared his throat and everyone’s eyes landed on him “W-well..umm” he stuttered

“Just get to the point already” May huffed

“Well..” Zach begun “Im pregnant, I-I mean, she’s pregnant”

"We’re having a baby” you chimed in, smiling awkwardly.

Everyone around the table went silent.

"That’s not funny guys” Karen said, topping up her glass with some wine.

You and Zach looked to each other then back to them “We wasn’t joking”

"Come on Y/N” your mum scoffed before biting down on a piece of celery “You think I wouldn’t know if you we’re pregnant?” She asked “helloo? I made you ok, I know everything about you”

“Actually, I would be the first to know cos Zach tells me everything” May said proudly as she folded her arms across her chest. You began to feel anxious “…Well no..We didn’t say anything cos we didn’t know how you guys would react”

"But you don’t seem to be reacting at all” you tell them.

“Yeah cos we know it’s just a prank” Then your mum suddenly shot up and begin to adjust her hair as her eyes shifted around the room “Is this going on YouTube?”

"Y/N” your dad called so you turned to face him “How far along are you?” He asked, a serous tone in his voice

You couldn’t believe your dad of all people was the only one taking it seriously.

"I’m about..” you counted along on your fingers “6 weeks”

Karen clapped her hands in excitement “Is he in on the prank?”

"There is no prank mum(!)"Zach stressed- his voice raised a little

"And you waited this long to tell us?” Your dad continued to inquire “As I said, we wasn’t sure how you guys would take it” you told him “I’m sorry dad”

Your dad just nodded, understandingly.

“No. There’s no fucking way our pregnant y/n” Your mum spat as she rose to her feet with an awkward smile on her face.

"And there it is” Zach mumbled under his breath.

“I mean, We’ve told you all there is to know about safe sex and contraception and birth control..” she ranted, looking to your dad for support.

"It just happened” you admitted before lowering your head in shame

“How? Did you poke a hole in the condoms or something?” Karen questioned

"Mum what the fuck?” Zach snapped

Offended, you let out a short breath “Why the hell would I do that?”

"I dunnoe” You watched as she took a huge gulp of wine “You had to trap him in your clutches somehow” she mumbled into the bottom of the glass.

“Excuse me?” Your mum questioned “Why would she want to ‘Trap’ someone like him when she can do so much better?”

"Mum” you warned

“Better?!” Karen yelled “Your daughter’s the one spreading her legs, didn’t you teach her any self respect?”

"Mum!” both Zach and May warned

“I didn’t raise y/n like that, your son probably pressured her into having sex with him” Your mum hissed

They continued to go back and forth for a while. Both these women blaming each other for raising their children wrong. Your dad and May kept quiet as Zach tried to intervene.

“Oh my god, SHUT UP!” You yelled now on the edge of your seat, immediately causing the women to stop “For fuck sake, can’t you guys hear the bullshit your saying to each other right now?!”

Karen and your mother slowly sat back down on their seats. Zach grabbed your shoulder to comfort you.

“Look ladies” Zach begun “We know this is a shitty situation and neither of us expected it to happen, but it is what it is, you just gonna have to deal with it”

"Zach, How are we suppose to deal with something like this?” Karen asks “Our babies are having a baby. That’s a huge fucking deal”

“Yeah, We know. That’s why we need you guys to support us” you say “So..will you?”

You waited a while for someone to answer.

“To be honest y/n..” your mum eventually replied “I am very disappointed”

Your heart sank a little. Hearing your mum say you was disappointed in you had hurt you a lot.

“I don’t want you to get upset but I just- I guess I just had a different plan for you in my head” She honestly admitted “But no matter what, I will always support you”

She picked up the wine bottle and wavered it about “I’m just gonna need a minute to get used to it, that’s all”

you threw her a short smile and she returned one.

"Have anything to say to me?” Zach questioned his mother, everyone’s attention turned to Karen.

“..It’s getting late” Karen announced as she begun to gather her things. Zach shook his head in disbelief “Come May, we’ll meet Zach at home” You felt for Zach and rubbed your thumb over his clenched fists.

"Why don’t we clear these plates?” Your dad suggested to your mum and they the soon exited the room. Zach waited for the door to slam shut before talking.

“Typical”

Alex said she was “almost 30” so like 28. That means her ten year high school reunion is coming up. I would sell my soul to Lord Cheeto Toupee for an episode where she drags Maggie to midvale for the reunion and of course someone gets murdered or something and they have to investigate and they find out the high school bio teacher is like a bug from Neptune that feeds on white straight males. They work the case while also sticking it to Alex’s high school nemesis Karen and her bimbo side kick Becky who called Alex boxy in the tenth grade and told Brad Football that she had herpes. In the end, they defeat the bad guy in glorious fashion and slow dance to “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith in the gym that now has a hole in the roof and all the decorations are destroyed with alien bits and bullet holes.

In Japanese culture there’s this idea of putting others before yourself, but I’ve also never wanted to let myself down. Someone recently told me how refreshing it is to see an Asian woman as a superhero. That stuck with me. Stand up for yourself and what you love.” - Karen Fukuhara, Suicide Squad (2016)

Preface // Part One // Part Two


“I am dropping The Warriors!” Karen announced the next Friday afternoon as she barged into your room. In her usual dramatic flair, she fell onto your bed in agony, staring at her phone.

You barely looked up from your computer as you chuckled, “Suddenly the three-year obsession is over?”

“That asshole hasn’t called or texted me since! He doesn’t even so much as look at me in the hallway,” she grumbled. “I’m done with The Warriors, especially Apollo.”

You sighed and finally looked up from your computer. Zeus had told you that Apollo was ‘one of the good ones’, but that didn’t mean much coming from someone who slept around like it was an Olympic sport.

All my opinions on Hamilton in Chicago

This was my second time seeing Hamilton, the first time in Chicago. While the fact that it was the second time around with a different cast and theater certainly made it feel different than last time, one thing that was weighing heavily on me throughout the show was that… the country feels like it’s heading in a different direction than what I saw it last. My all-time favorite lines in the show are these that Hamilton sings:

I wrote some notes at the beginning of a song someone will sing for me
America, you great unfinished symphony, you sent for me
You let me make a difference
A place where even orphan immigrants
Can leave their fingerprints and rise up

The first time I heard this I thought about the American Dream and how far we’d come in building upon the work these people had started. This time I thought about the weight of responsibility that is on all of us now to do so much better. I still found hope in the show but in different places than I had before.

With that, I’ll talk about the performances under the cut.

so sometimes im w my famliy and someones like “oh yeah they listen to kpop” and im like “yeah the music i listen to isnt in english woopdeedoo aunt karen” and then someone in your family is like “YEAH SHE WANTS TO FUCK AN ASIAN” “YOU LIKE ASIANS RIGHT?” “LMAO U WANNA BE ASIAN”

like when i’m one who understands well enough the line of whats creepy and racist and then someone doesnt and they speak for you it’s so irritating. like dont say racist shit oN MY BEHALF. I KNOW MY GODDAMN BOUNDARIES AND PEOPLE SHOULDNT BE MADE TO FEEL LIKE OBJECTS JUST BECAUSE YOU DONT.

and like most importantly is that the poc around me do not deserve to hear that in the first place. and they dont deserve to be made to feel like objects or to be made uncomfortable or to live in a place where people say that shit. 

and then when my name is dragged into it, their list of people who see them as wierd fetishized objects just gets fucking longer and it shouldn’t be- no one should make anyone feel like that

and it pisses me off so bad because the last thing that we as a whole need is for those ideals to be spread around!!!

like the same asshats who think indian people aren’t asian are the ones saying “oh so you like asians? how about this one?” LIKE THEYRE OBJECTS.

and thye think that because i dont listen to music in english that im gonna agree with them???  thinking that i’m going to be like “oh yeah i love all the asian men please throw them at me”

like i am not afraid to ruin family dinners over this!!! i just wanna sit here and eat my dry white people turkey but i will correct you!! it’s not okay and you shouldn’t be this ignorant!! you are forty years old aunt patricia i shouldn’t have to explain this!! like its better that i listen to them than any poc bc they dont deserve that but to see the AUDACITY OF SOME PEOPLE is so frustrating BECAUSE THEYRE SO OLD ADN CRUSTY SOMEHOW EVEN WHEN THEYRE LIKE 23???

Summary: All you Hanella fans can finally stop asking for sick!fic now

Hank was having a weird day.  He woke up feeling restless somehow.  He tried to write, but his brain wouldn’t focus.  Besides, there was a cramp in his shoulder that felt like a pulled muscle and his shoulders burned and ached when he typed.  He gave up by lunchtime and then he tried to eat, but food didn’t seem to agree with him so he put it away and went for a walk.

By the time he got home, he had a headache.  He took some Ibuprofen and wondered what time Stella would be home today.  She hadn’t been working on cases for a few weeks, but was doing something he didn’t fully understand that entailed analysis of departmental efficiency.  Some days she’d been home by mid-afternoon to type up reports, some days she wasn’t home until eight or nine o’ clock.

It was after seven when she got home that night.  His headache had waned, but the ache in his shoulders was still there and had traveled to the middle of his back as well.  It made him feel old and cranky.  Now that Stella was home, he wanted to pout at her and have her tell him he wasn’t old or cranky.  He met her at the door, like a puppy or a child desperate for attention, but she looked almost as miserable as he felt.

“What’s wrong?” he asked, massaging her shoulders lightly as she held the wall to unzip her boots.

anonymous asked:

How do you think Shawn would be in terms of PDA when his family is around? Like on tour or when he is at home with his girl

Shawn is for sure an affectionate guy, but I think he would - no matter who it’s around - keep it down a little. I think that there are some things he wants to do to you (that are cuddles and stuff) that he only wants between you two. But like those little signs of affection, he would have no problem with at all.

Holding your hand, stroking your back, hugging you gently. Or putting his hand on your thigh or giving your cheek a tender kiss. I think he’d even give you one of those short, but so loving kisses. I don’t think Shawn mind showing people that he loves you and I don’t think he’d be able not to do these things while being around his family - but I don’t think Shawn’s the type to stick down his tongue in your throat while his family are around or like touch you weird places. 

When he did one of these things it would just be someone he couldn’t control. He’d want to show you affection, show that he loves you and he’s glad to be home with you. He wouldn’t even think about it, it would just happen. And everytime Shawn did grab your hand in the living room or hugged you from behind while helping Karen prepare food or nuzzling your cheek while chatting to Aaliyah, it would make his entire family so happy. They would just see how much you were both smiling and how much you made each other truly happy. 

So I think the answer is; Shawn would kiss your cheek while watching a movie with Aaliyah. He would hug you from behind and rest his chin on your shoulder, letting his nose brush against your neck while helping Karen out in the kitchen. Shawn would rest his hand on your thigh and interlace your fingers while watching hockey with his dad.
