You should write the robot au. Please.

i’m just saying that scott likes to fix things. he has an etsy profile: send him your computer, your phone, your mini-droid, and he will fix it and send it back. he even cleans them. he’s never had an unhappy customer.

these particular robots, the ST1 line, they’re unsettlingly realistic. their flesh is synthetic, but it functions like real skin; so when he finds this thing, it’s bruised, bleeding, and shut down in the alley between apartments. scott thinks he’s just a person at first, and rushes to him to see if he’s ok. face lolling between scott’s palms, it says, unnaturally slow, “battery… low.” so scott scoops it up and hefts it home.

his roommate’s not pleased. he’s like, “we don’t have enough room for this. you’d better keep it in your room.”

so scott ignores him, of course; he pays just as much rent as derek does, and he’s not gonna take no orders. it takes a couple days to track down a charger for the thing - the latest version is the ST1-LE8, and those have the nutrients-from-organic-food and solar capabilities - so in the meantime he does keep it in the storage room because it looks like a corpse and it’s super creepy. but he does find a cord adapter at a radio shack going-out-of-business sale. he drags the unit into the living room to plug it in, because all the plugs in his room are taken or behind furniture. the first thing the ST1 says when it starts back up is a very expressive, “ow.”

scott’s worked with these robots before. they’re not very popular, not next to the ones out by hp and apple, which have cleaner lines - they’re clearly not human, so they don’t creep you the fuck out - but he has still worked with an ST1 before. they’re not like that. they just look human; they don’t act it. in fact, they’re usually pretty buggy and weird. they’re basically like the cricket flip phone of the robot world. he thinks this one’s been tampered with. still, scott’s a sweet guy in general and he instinctively responds as if it were a person. “you ok?”

the thing grimaces, shakes its head, as if to dispel grogginess. “what day is it.”

“tuesday,” scott answers, “march 7th.” the thing nods slowly. “did someone try to fuck you?” people do that. try to fuck their robots. if they’re not designed for it, it’ll fuck up all their innards, and you have to open them up and clean them out. it’s super gross, but scott’s done it before.

“god, i wish,” the unit tells him. scott snorts unexpectedly. “ummm, my arm doesn’t work.”

“yeah, i got you,” says scott. “you want me to shut you down while i fix it or are you good?”

the thing looks at him, a little puzzled, a little intrigued. “i’m good,” it says. it glances over scott’s shoulder; scott twists around to see what he’s looking at. it’s his roommate, derek. “are you just eating dry granola?” the unit asks incredulously.

“do you have some diet questioning app installed?” derek returns aridly.

“you’re not even gonna throw some milk on there? a strawberry? nothin’?” derek doesn’t reply; he just takes a bite of granola. “humans are so… stupid,” the thing mutters, watching scott start to dismantle his arm. “no offense,” it adds.

scott smirks at him. he’s got bright brown eyes, dark circles under them. “none taken,” scott says.

Hey! I just found you, through one of the other blogs I follow. I wanted to let you know, I love and appreciate fic writers. Good fics are where I get so many ideas for my art. If not for fic writers, I wouldn't have started drawing again. Thank you!

Hi there! I saw you replying to my post - thank you for the things you added. I’ve been going through and reading all the tags and additions, and I’m torn between being happy that there is support for this issue and being sad that it’s even necessary. It’s… pretty tiring, in the long run, I guess, but I think it’s important to talk about it and raise awareness.

(I actually went through my bookmarks on ao3 yesterday, and through the older comments and replies in my inbox, and was sad to find that quite a few of the works I’d loved have been deleted and people I’d talked to have orphaned their accounts… just goes to show the magnitude of the problem, I guess.)

In any case, artists like you who support writers and draw inspiration from their work are pillars of any fandom (and the same thing happens the other way around, too, of course! I’ve written quite a few works that were inspired by artworks I saw :D). I think it’s incredibly important for all creators to support each other, so thank you for this message and thank you for spreading the word!

 s7 is such a ‘character of the week’ season. With…

*nods just like Jonas at all your tags*

#Daniel shouldn’t have come back to ‘retake’ his place#it wasn’t his place anymore#he chose to leave them#where’s the tension#where’s “you left us and now you expect everything to be the same?”#where’s “I didn’t even know you were okay because you never bothered to visit me”#from Sam#where’s “you could’ve saved me but chose to do nothing”#from Jack#???

I mean it makes sense that the actors would be happy to have him back, but from the in universe POV it kinda… doesn’t?

but in s7 they pretend like nothing happened. Like Daniel didn’t abandon them a year ago. Like ignoring Jonas and his time on SG1 would make us forget about s6 And it just doesn’t feel right. Sure it’s great that they care about each other so much. But such close relationship can’t be perfect all the time. Yet mostly they argued about what they should do. And mostly it was just Daniel thinking roses and ponies can save the universe and disagreeing with Jack’s military POV

the point is, conflict is not a bad thing. But tptb have always played it safe. And sometimes it’s not a good thing imo

I got a new haircut today and I’m CUTE !! anyways I hate the thing companies do like “we’ll match your donations up to $100,000” or whatever tf like … you’re a multi million dollar company, you can donate a few grand without it affecting you at all, why are you turning into a stupid game !! I promise you, donations don’t go up just because a company said they’d match the money, so the group isn’t even getting more money!!!! Just donate the money and move on it literally doesn’t matter

I've seen people accusing TJLCers of not liking the episode just because Johnlock didn't happen. Today I was at uni and started asking about last night's episode. What they said: "Fine but not what I expected. Seemed off a bit" It wasn't just us...

Hi Lovely <3

Yeah, I’ve seen casuals and even antis really confused about this episode as well. So it’s not just us.

Sam wasn't even trying to get Dean not to kill him at the point he pulled out the pictures. He was giving them to Dean to help him in the future and hope that one day he can get back to being good. Sam was already expecting to be dead at that point! How do people twist that into Sam manipulating him into not killing him when that wasn't even what Sam was saying or trying to do. Even after that, Sam nodded at Dean and gave him a small smile, like he was telling Dean he FORGAVE him.
