  74. “Yesterday I learned that my childhood friend was a demon.”
  75. “Please tell me you said 'What bothers me most.’ "Yes? What the hell did you think I said?” Well….it kinda sounded like “His father’s meatloaf.’
  76. "Goddammit, why won’t you die?!”  "I DON’T FUCKING KNOW! “
  77. "I’d appreciate it if you fucking stopped, thanks.”
  78. “What the hell is this?” “It’s jello, you eat it”
  79. "You didn’t” “I did and I made them watch”
  80. "Why in the hell did you think this was a good idea?” “Look, YOU try saying 'No’ to not just a primordial deity, but my little sister as well.” “…Ok, you got me there.”
  81. “How do you know that it’s supposed to look like this?”
  82. “Are you making *tea*?!” “Well what else am I supposed to do?” “I don’t know maybe STOP THE MONSTER THATS RIGHT IN FRONT OF US!!”
  83. “Why are you in a dress?” “Lucifer wanted to have a tea party. You don’t say no to Lucifer”
  84. “So you’re telling me that aliens invaded while I was on vacation?”
  85. “I appreciate the gesture but I prefer my horses fried rather than alive.”
  86. *whining* “But Mooommm, I don’t want to save the woooorrld!”
  87. “Now I know not to cry there”
  88. “What if we DIDNT kill the king every Thursday” “Good idea we’ll kill him on Fridays instead.”
  89. “So you’re a zombie now?” “I guess I am” “So what are you gonna do about it?” “*shrug* I don’t know….”
  90. “I guess you weren’t joking when you said that the world is ruled by ants”
  91. “When I die, tell everyone 'I told you so.’”
  92. “You’re not real… You’re only in those silly books!” “Correction, my dear, you’re the fictional one.”
  93. “There was no 'free pie’ you moron! You stole it!”
  94. “Okay, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that my pet rock has gained sentience, just like we planned! The bad news is that it turns out he’s evil and is currently building a rock army with the intent of taking over the world. aaaand, he’s trying to get Mt. Everest on his side.”
  95. “Why is our baby on a wanted poster?”
  96. “Zombies are people too, Mom!”
  97. “… I’m gonna go for it. Hold my head for me real quick, and don’t put it on a mannequin like you did last time.”
  98. “Fascinating… I was unaware that was physically plausible.” “I know right.”
  99. “ACHOO!” “Bless you.” “No sorry, that won’t work on me.”
  100. “Bye, Felicia. Take you and your cat ears! GO!”

Prepare yourselves, because starting from tomorrow we will be making ‘100 Prompts That Will Make You Cry’ lists. Hope you enjoy this one. Which prompt do you like the most?

Okay, let’s start with how extremely adorable Jughead is. Like, he cares so much about the drive-in and as we found out, the place was literally his home. Like, someone protect my son please. And he tried so hard to save it, talking to the mayor, talking to Fred and handing out flyers and stuff. Forget Archie and that love triangle, this is the important story here.

Speaking of Fred and Archie, look how nice Fred was to that fucking pedophile. Like, he was complimenting her, inviting her to dinner and being such a great guy and that bitch is just sleeping with his son. Ugh. I hate her. 

Betty keeping a diary is so cliche™ but I love it lmao. 

I AM SO HERE FOR BETTY, RONNIE AND JUGHEAD HANGING OUT. Kevin’s okay too, I guess. Still haven’t decided if I like him or not. I mean, he’s funny and all but idk he just feels way too stereotypical and I’m still most certainly not over the biphobia. But maybe he isn’t really biphobic and that was a one time thing bc how else would Betty and Veronica, who are both obviously bisexual still be friends with him? Idk man. 

Cheryl, I love you for being a bitch but damn you just got your ass handed to you by Hermione Lodge, who is just as much of a goddess as her daughter. 

Betty calling out Archie on his shit 👏 👏👏

but like she was so…good about it?? Like she got her point across but didn’t immediately threaten to tell and stuff. And, Archie, honey, how could Ronnie even back you up? Firstly, what you’re doing ain’t cool and secondly, that’s her girlfriend you’re arguing with so ??? 

Archiekins 

Where can I sign a petition to get rid of Alice Cooper? 

THE ARCHIE/GRUNDY SCENES LITERALLY MADE ME SHUDDER WITH DISGUST ew ew ew ew ew. 

Betty questioning Grotesque Garbage is   👌 👌 👌 she was really good at that too honestly I just really love Betty Cooper man. 

SHE WAS JASON’S TEACHER? SHE’S THE KILLER!!11!!!1! 

“I don’t think of my students that way” lmao bitch stop lying

Jughead being a rebel with a cause is my aesthetic. And awww, he’s talking about himself and his family for once. This boy must be protected at all costs.. 

Archie, wtf are you trying to do, telling Betty to stay out of it? She’s literally doing what’s best for you like smh man shut up. 

BETTY AND VERONICA BEING DETECTIVE GIRLFRIENDS IS MY JAM. Like, seriously, they have so much chemistry like just let Bernoica happen man. It’s literally already canon. 

I would sell my soul to Satan and sell my body on the black market to make Beronica canon. 

I’m fully aware I’m being queerbaited but Betty and Ronnie are just. so. goddamn. cute. 

‘Jennifer Gibson’. THAT BITCH.

She has a gun in the car. THAT FUCKING BITCH. SHE’S THE KILLER!!!11!

Alice, wtf is wrong with you. Fred is a chill parent. He isn’t going to tell his son to stop talking to his best friend just ‘cause you’re a psycho who wants to control her daughter.

Okay, but like I really love Hermione and Veronica’s relationship it’s so good and–WAIT A SEC THEY’RE BUYING THE DRIVE-IN. Why must you crush Jughead’s happiness?  I TRUSTED YOUR HERMIONE.

Omg Alice saw the gun oops shit shit shit (betty what were you thinking hiding it in your fucking drawer smh girl). Wow, Alice just hit a new low. It’s not cool to read your daughter’s diary 

I would have felt bad after learning about Grundy’s backstory but my obvious hate for prevented that from happening thank god. 

ARCHIE, GET AWAY FROM THAT WOMAN. NO, DON’T HUG HER. UGH ARCHIE WHY.

Let’s talk about the drive-in.

Poor Juggie god I feel so bad for him Archie where are you your boyfriend needs you

VERNOICA!! LODGE!! IS!! A!! FUCKING!! GODDESS!!!

Veronica Lodge is like fine wine. She gets better and better the longer she exists. 

I kinda sorta weirdly like the Veronica-Cheryl-Kevin squad?? They can be the ‘burn you to a crisp’ squad.

Ooh, Kevin’s got a new hottie. Also, did I mention I really love Kevin’s dad? He’s so nice.

YAS KEVIN GET SOME (My feelings are so conflicted like I want to support Kevin because he’s the only important, openly LGBTQ+ character on the show so far but like, something’s just off about him) 

Archie, please never speak to Grun–OH. HE’S LEAVING HER. YES ARCHIE YES YES YES–OH WAIT. OH NO. 

SHIT’S ABOUT TO GO DOWN, DOWN, DOWN.

Alice why tf do you have to stick your nose where it doesn’t belong? 

Man, I feel bad for Fred. 

Archie, don’t defend that woman, please. She deserves it. 

Such drama much intense very wow. 

Oh no. My bby Betty is crying FUCK YOU ALICE. 

Okay, I know there’s probably some people sad about Grundy after her backstory but we got nothing but good stuff immediately after she left? 

Fred and Archie having a moment 👌 👌 👌 (I mean, I feel bad that Archie cried and that he was upset but it had to be done) 

Betty finally standing up to her asshole of a mother  👌 👌 👌 (I still kind of think that Betty is actually Polly but idk) 

A cute scene between Betty and Archie  👌 👌 👌

The scene where Veronica confronts her mom was certainly…something.

OH MY GAWD SOMEONE BROKE INTO KELLER’S HOUSE AND TOOK ALL THE EVIDENCE. THE SAME NIGHT GRUNDY LEFT. SHE’S DA KILLER. 

Grundy is like a bag of opened chips. She gets worse the longer she exists. Archie, you could not have been more wrong when you said she wasn’t a child predator. I already feel bad for that poor new kid victim of hers. 

On the whole, this was a really, really good episode. I give it a 9 out of 10, but that’s because my queen Josie wasn’t in it and there was not enough Jughead and Archie and there was way too much Archie and Grundy interaction but hey, at least she’s gone now. 

God, I’m literally crying over Jughead. The picture with him and his sister (who tf named them Jughead and Jellybean tho) was so adorable and so sad. My poor child. 

OH MY GOD THE SCARY BIKER DUDE IS JUGHEAD’S DAD?!

Where will he go? What will he do? How will he live? WHERE WILL HE CHARCHG HIS LAPTOP ASHFRWLGHLUFU ARCHIE COME HELP YOUR BOYFRIEND 

Also, I would just like to add, Betty is the best friend anyone could ever have and she needs to be appreciated more. 

So, what do you guys think? What do you agree and disagree with me on? Let’s talk! Reblog this while adding your notes or send in an ask (PLEASE SEND ME ASKS) or send me a message or something and I will see y’all next week.

anonymous asked:

Do you have a recommended reading list for early era sci-fi stories? Like, what you think helped define the genre in its infancy? You seem to know so much, and I want to try and maybe become more knowledgeable of geeky literature roots.

Well, here’s a few recommendations to get you started on reading early pulp-era science fiction: 

Slan by A.E. van Vogt (1940). This one is about a young boy who is a Slan, a member of a tendril-headed race of telepathic mutants who, in the future, are hunted and hated to extermination by normal humans. Our hero’s parents are murdered in front of him, and he is forced to go into hiding. It’s a great premise: you’re running in the night, and the wolves are after you. The book is really worth reading for the villain, Kier Gray, dictator of earth, a man described as “magnetic and tigerish.” A huge part of the book deals with him outsmarting all the people who want his job, and you grow to actually admire him. Like Julius Caesar or Napoleon, he’s a great man…but not a “nice” one. 

The Black Flame (1948). Anything by Stanley G. Weinbaum is worth reading; his career as a scifi writer only lasted 18 months, before he died of cancer, but in that time, he totally transformed the genre: his “Martian Odyssey” changed scifi because it had truly alien and incomprehensible aliens. Black Flame is one is one of my favorites because it’s actually a scifi romance, in that the romantic story is the “A-plot” and not a subplot. Our hero is a beefy modern-day Chris Hemsworthian engineer who wakes up in a post-apocalyptic future ruled by immortals. The most memorable is Princess Margaret, the Black Flame. Her moods turn on a dime, and she can go from the most achingly alluring woman ever, the kind you’d sell your soul to have, to being cruel and pitiless in an instant. Despite that, you get the feeling she is actually vulnerable, isolated from mankind by her immortality. I don’t know your gender, but in general, all the women I’ve lent this one to love it, because it’s a love story and the Black Flame is so cool.

Galactic Patrol by E.E. Smith (1939). This is not the first space opera, but the first space opera that had everything in play as we know it. It features the Lensmen, space-police assembled from dozens of races. It’s great, pure adventure stuff, and is the first book to have platoons of marines in strength-boosting power armor. It has imagery like the hyperspacial tube that lets you cross 20,000 light years in seconds, if you survive. “The Hell Hole in Space.” Mind battles where the reflection and parried mind powers make hundreds of innocent bystanders fall down dead. Space battles with literally millions of starships. Assembled from thousands of races, the Lensmen are the predecessors to multi-species hero organizations like the Jedi Knights and the Green Lanterns. The alien lensmen are really alien; my favorite is a telepathic dragon, and another is a psychologist from a planet of cowards. None of it is schlocky, it’s all deadly serious. The Lensmen have a kill-count that would make Brock Sampson blush, and the villains are frighteningly ruthless, cold, and competent. My favorite is the blue-skinned, cold, supergenius leader of the pirates, Helmuth, who was such a frighteningly effective villain. You figure out he’s not the usual bad guy when he refuses to accept the hero’s apparent death at face value, and because a body wasn’t found, assumed the hero faked his own death and continues looking for him.

“Shambleau” and the Northwest Smith horror-space opera stories by C.L. Moore (1933). If you ever want to see where Han Solo came from, read the Northwest Smith stories, published by C.L. Moore, about an amoral, pragmatic and hardboiled space smuggler and criminal, in adventures that are moody, dark, and more like horror than like adventure stories. The best of these is Shambleau, where Northwest Smith discovers an alien creature that may be the inspiration for the legends of Medusa.

A Princess of Mars, Gods of Mars, Warlord of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The most influential science fiction writer of the early part of this century, Edgar Rice Burroughs’s Mars/Barsoom stories are set on old, dying Mars of endless warfare, flying navies, swordfights, and beautiful princesses in need of rescue. They’re romantic stuff about heroes, gallant deeds, and daring and villains. The books have giant apes who live in crumbling lost Martian cities, and a beautiful girl who mentally controls lions.

The Hand of Zei by L. Sprague de Camp. De Camp is wonderful, but read this book right after the John Carter of Mars stuff. It’s kind of like Army of Darkness, in that it’s both a satire and also a great straight example of sci-fi planet romance stories at the same time. The hero is a neurotic oedipean ghost writer. The evil sinister mesmerist who commands the evil pirates is a velociraptor creature who is a germaphobe and spooked by loud noises. It’s absolute great fun and has a wonderful sense of humor.

Sinister Barrier by Eric Frank Russell (1939). This horror-tinged scifi novel has an amazing premise: imagine if the earth had been conquered and ruled in secret by invisible energy beings in another plane of existence who feed off our sensations of fear, pain, and terror, using the human race as cattle. Our hero is a scientist who discovers the existence of these beings, and has to flee for his life when he realizes the true nature of the world.

Villain

Request: hiiii can i get a prompt 19 with kihyun :) :) :) pretty please

19) You and your bias are rival idols forced to work with each other on a collaboration

Member: Monsta X’s Kihyun x Y/N

Type: some angst, some fluff, some romance. (warning: inappropriate language/references)


You fidgeted in the back of the SUV that was seemingly swallowing you whole. You weren’t sure if you were angry, frustrated, sad, or nervous. More than likely, it was an anxiety inducing in-between, but you tried to swallow your insecurities. Heart burn and acid in your esophagus were a physical manifestation of the nerves, mixing with your heart repeatedly plummeting to your feet and back to your chest again. 

Your manager had informed you just over a week ago that you had landed an OST for one of the most talked up dramas of the year. You would be performing a duet, but the other artist hadn’t yet been selected. You were notably excited, realizing what a big opportunity this would be for your career.  Only a few days later, you were called to your manager’s office. Told to shut the door, you were already aware of the heavy tone weighing down the air. She had informed you that you would be working with someone you had detested since shortly after your debut.

Yoo Kihyun of Monsta X. 

You weren’t exactly sure when or how you became rivals. Your relationship had developed simply enough, strictly work with the occasional conversation exchanged. This had all seemed to become altered once you had both been special MC’s for Music Bank during your last comeback cycles. Both of your groups had been up for a win that week, which caused an unnecessary awkwardness between the two of you. After your group had won, once again snatching away Monsta X’s first win (although they would move forward to win the next week) your relationship had changed. 

From that point on, every time you had run into Monsta X, Kihyun had something sarcastic or rude to say. You grew to dread running into the group, which wasn’t fair to yourself or the other men of Monsta. Hearing that you would have to spend hours, if not days with him, set your nerves on edge. 

You tried to shake the thoughts from your head as you felt a light squeeze on your knee. Looking up, you met the sad smile of your manager who gave a polite nod toward the door. You hesitantly grasped the handle and gave it a gentle push, exposing you to the morning sunlight you weren’t prepared for. 

Then again, you weren’t prepared for a lot of things. 

You looked up to the Starship Entertainment building, wincing at the immensity of it. You weren’t sure how your manager had negotiated, if she had at all, but you had agreed it would be best if you used a Starship studio for the project. You glanced over your shoulder to get another supportive nod from your manager as you shuffled toward the heavy glass doors that provided entry into the building. 

After checking in with the receptionist, you and your manager were led down hall after hall. It felt like hours as you trailed behind the woman, her short and thin frame darting from one direction to the next. Eventually you reached another set of glass doors with several people on the opposite side. She pulled them open, struggling with the weight as she waved you inside. 

“Hello,” your manager chimed, bowing to everyone in the room. You followed suit, keeping your eyes low. 

“I’m unsure if everyone has met,” one of the Starship managers nodded. “But this is Kihyu-”

“We’ve met,” Kihyun sighed shortly. Your face immediately darted up as you made eye contact with the cold man. His appearance had changed since the last time you had seen him, but then again, so had yours. His hair had gone from a bubblegum pink to a dark brown. He wore a beanie, keeping his hair pushed back from his face. He wasn’t wearing any makeup, but he didn’t have anything to cover up anyhow. He was brutally handsome, which made the situation so much worse. “No need for the pleasantries.”

“Ah, Kihyun, should we treat our guests this way?” his manager laughed nervously, casting a wary side eye to one of the producers set up at the mixing board. 

“Let’s just get to work,” Kihyun grumbled, launching himself from the couch he was lounging on. He leaned back, grabbing a piece of paper he had been looking over, and crumpled it a bit. He looked back to you, pushing the now crushed paper into your hands. “The lyrics.”

He sauntered past you and into the sound booth and placed a pair of headphones over his ears. Your mouth popped open, shocked by his open act of hostility. 

“I don’t know what’s gotten into him,” his manager gasped, rubbing at his temples. “I’m so sorry.”

You slowly shut your mouth, taking in a deep breath through your nose to calm yourself. “Don’t be.”


“Alright, let’s take a break!” the composer called over the studio mic, replacing the track with his voice in the sound booth. Kihyun cocked his eyebrows as he looked up from his paper and to you. 

“Didn’t we just take a break?” he asked uncertainly. 

“Yeah, we need to have a talk,” Kihyun’s manager responded, waving you both in. You looked warily to Kihyun as you hopped from your stool and past him. 

“Yah, watch it,” he grumbled as you bumped into his knee. 

“Look, this is literally a four by four glass box,” you hissed, turning to give him a death glare. His eyes grew wide at your tone. This had been the first time you had spoken to him since you had arrived to Starship. “If you don’t want to get bumped into, take more of an effort to make yourself smaller. Oh wait…you’ve already done that, haven’t you?”

His jaw dropped as he openly stared at you, unblinking. You tried to not smile at your small victory, making sure to back into him and bump his leg again as you exited the booth.

“What’s up?” you sighed, plopping onto the couch beside your manager. She pursed her lips and wrinkled her nose, a sign you had become familiar with. This expression was usually synonymous with bad news. 

“It’s not working,” Kihyun’s manager sighed as he had entered the room. “Your chemistry…”

“It just isn’t there,” your manager finished. “While you both sing beautifully…there’s no feeling behind the words.”

“The feeling is what sells it,” Kihyun’s manager sighed. 

Kihyun was leaned against the wall on the opposite side of the room, biting repeatedly at his lip. He looked up from his shoes and to his manager. “I always sound soulful, my words are always believable.”

“Not this time,” his manager muttered, shaking his head. “You sound hollow.” 

“Hollow!” Kihyun croaked, his cheeks becoming pink with anger and embaressment. “Well what about my partner! I can only be as good as who I’m paired with!”

“There is something lacking with both of you,” your manager cooed. You lifted your brows in surprise at her words. This was the first time she had ever given you any sort of negative feedback, no matter how small it was. She placed a comforting hand on your knee, but you quickly shifted to avoid her touch. 

“Maybe you two should have a conversation, just the two of you,” Kihyun’s manager said slowly. ‘It seems as if a heaviness has been filling up the room since you have gotten together.”

Kihyun rolled his eyes as he pushed off from the wall and pulled open the door. He sighed as he looked at you, his expression asking if you were coming along. 

You sucked at your back teeth, wincing as you stood. You didn’t even care about the OST anymore, you just wanted to be out of this uncomfortable situation. 

“You need to get your shit together,” Kihyun hissed, almost as soon as you stepped into the hallway. You could hardly believe his words. You looked down, realizing his muscular fingers were wrapped around your arm. You shook him off, recoiling from his touch and shot him the dirtiest look you could muster. 

“Don’t touch me,” you spat. “I need to get my shit together? At least I’m not accosting my singing partner in the hallway.”

“Oh, for fuck’s sake, accosting?” Kihyun groaned. “I was hoping to shake some sense into you.” 

“I’m not one to let the villain win,” you whispered. “But I can’t do this anymore. I quit.” 

You began to enter the studio again, only to have Kihyun grip you by the shoulder and spin you around. He tugged you a bit further down the hall, causing you to drag your feet in an attempt to halt him. 

“What in the hell Kihyun?” you gasped as he finally stopped, looking around to see the area he had pulled you to wasn’t as well lit and only led to an emergency exit. 

He turned, placing either of his hands on the opposite side of the wall beside your face. He pushed his body entirely too close to yours, the heat of his emotion radiating toward you. He used his arms as a cage in which you were incapable of escaping. Your breathing grew more shallow at his close proximity, unknowingly allowing him to search your face with scrutiny. 

“I’ll scream,” you whispered, your eyes not backing down from his. 

“Do it,” Kihyun hissed back, his words a challenge. You opened your lips for a moment, considering the idea, but promptly closed them, knowing full well you couldn’t get him into that sort of trouble. 

“Why am I the villain? And who even calls people villains anymore?” he continued. You looked out of your peripherals at his hands encasing you, flat against the wall. His chest was flush against yours, a constant reminder of his existence and absurdity of the situation. 

“Who has who pinned to the wall?” you mumbled. “But you’re the one who seems to have a problem with me, Yoo Kihyun. It’s not the other way around.”

“Why in the hell would I have a problem with you?” Kihyun spit. “You’re the one making this whole situation awkward.”

“What kind of skewed universe are you living in?” you laughed bitterly. “You’ve treated me as if I was a piece of gum stuck to the bottom of your shoe ever since my group won at Music Bank.”

“You think that’s what this is about?” Kihyun gaped. “A stupid award show?”

“Then what is it about? Enlighten me!” you gasped. 

Kihyun nodded for a moment, his eyes focusing on your lips before he looked back up to you. “Have you ever heard…that some men show their emotions like children sometimes? That they will bully women they have feelings for?…I think…I think I can show you better than I can explain it to you.”

“This isn’t a drama, Kihyun,” you grumbled. “I don’t t know if this OST has you in your feelings, but-”

Your words were abruptly cut off as Kihyun pressed his lips into yours. The kiss was hesitant at first, soft with uncertainty. Surely Kihyun had some idea that you could possibly rear back and smack the smugness from his face, but you were unsure if you wanted to do that. Your vision had begun to blur in the few moments before you finally decided to close your eyes and kiss back. 

Kihyun took this as a signal to remove his hands from the wall and let them rest lightly on your waist. You lifted your own fingers to curl around the back of his neck and play with the hair at his nape. With his tongue, Kihyun parted your lips, using his force to tilt your head back and explore even further. You relaxed into the kiss, getting over the initial shock and allowed him to do what he wanted. All of the angst and anxiety from the day melted away and into the kiss. Nothing about today had felt more right than this moment. Kihyun pulled you closer, stroking your back through the thin cotton of your t-shirt. Surely, this would give you inspiration for your song.

“Kihyun! Y/N! Where did you go?” the deep voice belonging to Kihyun’s manager called down the hallway.

Kihyun’s lips detached from yours, taking a small moment to smile at you. “We’re coming…

…well, not yet. I’ll have you doing that tonight actually.”

Song: I’ll be good-Jaymes Young

Imagine:Damon stops you from making a life-threatening decision.

You stood in the dark, pitch black. You felt like clawing your eyes out, you wondered whether this was your own personal hell but deep down something was telling you that your hell was much worse.

You were going to find out very soon. Beneath you, your legs were shaking. Feeling sorry for yourself you took a step forward.

This was it, you were selling your soul to the devil. Literally.
You were going to make a deal with Cade. He leaves all of your friends alone and he can have your soul. You’d serve him for the rest of your days.

You were about to call out his name but in a split second you were whisked away from the building.
You sneezed as Damon pinned you down, you were suddenly in a field surrounded by flowers and all things pretty.

“Damon now is not the time for Vampire training"you rolled your eyes.

"What are you playing at?!"Damon exclaimed angrily.

"I-

"Y/n Please tell me you seriously weren’t about to do that!"he continued as he shook your shoulders.

"Damon I-
He wouldn’t let you get a word in.

"Stefan told me what you were planning, do you know how incredibly stupid and inconsiderate that is?!"he carried on the lecture.

"Inconsiderate? I was doing it for you?"you narrowed your eyes, Resting your head in a bed of daisies.

"I swear to god if you do anything dangerous like this again, I will lock you up and I will throw away the key so you can’t go anywhere
, ever!"he said.

"That’s abit extra don’t you think"you replied.

"Your coming home with me"Damon growled as he lifted you off the ground. He held onto you tightly.

"Why are you being like this, I was trying to do you a favor?"you sulked.

"What you were just about to do was not a favor, it was basically suicide"Damon was still fuming as his knuckles turnt white. His grip on the steering wheel becoming stronger.

"When did you start caring about me and my actions?"you mumbled.

"When you switched on my humanity something changed between us, You can’t deny it, it’s the way we’re are now, the way we look at each other, the things we would do for each other, our deep conversations, our secrets"Damon spoke calmly.

"If you go with Cade all of that is gone, he gets to meddle around with everything that’s in here just like Sybil did"he said tapping your forehead gently.

"The first time we met, all our memories together up until now, in the palm of his hand, and not just of me and you. Yours and Bonnie’s memories and the ones with Caroline. Even the ones of you and Stefan"Damon explained.

"Okay, I won’t go back I promise"you said quietly leaning your head against the car window.
Damon nodded as he let out a sigh of relief.

"Whatever is happening here-

He gestured between the both of you, when you looked up his eyes were focused on the road.

-I don’t want it to end, so please just try and stay alive"Damon pleaded.

McElstuck Classpects (So Far)

I don’t have all of them because I’m simply not familiar with some of the players. Also just went over possible players, not all of em have to be there. Anyways, here’s what I got.

  • Grifin
    • Bard of Light: He needs the codpiece it’s the only way. His story-weaving prevalent in many different pieces of content could fit with the vibes of a traditional fantasy bard, but fuck it, I’ll admit it, the outfit is just really funny. He needs it. He needs the goof. Now for the light part: look, a bard “invites destruction through aspect/allows for destruction of aspect.” Light is about fortune and knowledge. I think that fits pretty damn well, most prevalent in TAZ but honestly? I get that vibe from him in a lot of things. He has the knowledge of games (especially Bethesda) that allows (invites) him to destroy them even more thoroughly.
  • Travis
    • Knight of Hope: He is an optimistic, friendly boy whom I love, and I trust. Did you see his mentorship with the Teens? He is supportive and believes in them and a knight takes advantage and fights with their aspect. A valiant, noble agent of hope, of belief. A good man. He does a hit sometimes, yes, but he apologizes. That’s just the knight-y tendencies coming through a little more. And everyone learns from the experience. Don’t do a hit! (Addendum: All HS knights “hide their innermost selves.” Travis may be hiding his true strength, his true power, his capacity for destruction since he does not want to hurt anyone.)
  • Justin
    • Heir of Blood: Blood’s all about camaraderie, and in this case with his bros it’s very literal. There isn’t much solid lore behind heirs, but they seem to be surrounded by their aspect in some way, speculated to “protect themselves with,” “become,” or “receive” the aspect. In Justin’s case, his relationship to his brothers is an essential part of his life, not just because of blood relation but also because of their bonds of friendship. As the oldest bro, it makes sense for him to embody such values.
  • Clint
    • Rogue of Life: He literally, in a way, gave the boys life. Life also pertains to his role in TAZ, or at least the role he’s SUPPOSED to have, and the safety he contributed to his town through Peace on the Playground. I was struggling with the class and settled on Rogue, but that’s still up for debate. And I’m not saying he’s going to kill anyone (that’d be more thief-y), but there was that story of him POSSIBLY killing that guy in college and selling (redistributing) all his stuff, or whatever. He also “distributes” country music via radio, which I’m sure some people see as life.
  • Nick
    • Seer of Space: Originally I felt strongly about him being a Breath player, but after going over descriptions again, Space is undeniably fitting of his role in Car Boys; they’re concerned with “the size of things and their velocity, and their existence in relation to physics” which is basically Car Boys? Dimension, creation. The whole deal with frogs, and Nick DOES greatly enjoy Kero Blaster, starring a frog. Seers “use knowledge to coordinate their team,” which I feel he does since he’s established that the workings of playing beamNG.Drive are VERY finicky and require a depth of experience. He coordinates the show quite well, and certainly uses all the little intricacies to his advantage. TTS is based around him identifying mods, which are quite obvious at times, but still humors seer tendencies. In a fairly literal sense.
  • Porter
    • Mage of Time: Okay, I’ll admit, I originally landed on time because of the thought process that went this boy->music/DJ->Dave Strider. But that’s okay, because it works, especially with Nick as space. The boy’s aesthetic caters more to space or maybe void, but works with time because of the theme of reality-bending and alternate universes. Time players are shown to have interests in death and destruction in some way, which this boy has DEFINITELY got with his prominent obsession with worlds ending in unique ways. Especially game worlds, and a huge part of time players is….the responsibility of destroying a game world. A mage possibly “gives up their aspect to gain knowledge of it,” which also just kinda Feels Right for a buncha reasons. Plus, mages are regarded as the counterparts to seers, so there’s even more connection between him and his bro.
  • Russ
    • Page of Mind: I’m mostly going off of his LAC-persona, but that makes it all the more fun. Mind is concerned with decisions and their consequences, which Russ has some…interesting history with. A page’s untapped potential ties into his development in decision-making over time. Given, a lot of his decisions were based off of Doug (and the plot of LAC definitely has to play a part in this AU with the whole patron troll thing because uhhh how could it not it’s too good) but that could just be the push he needed to become his true self.
  • Tara
    • Witch of Void: Remember Basketball Ignoring Simulator? She turned their game into a game about nothing, about doing nothing, a void, and despite the efforts of the boys and it being THEIR podcast they couldn’t stop it. They couldn’t. She was simply too powerful. Witches “manipulate” or “unlock,” which is certainly what she did here. She was one of the last members of Rev3 before it died out (became a void?) but she was there til the end, both trying to keep it from its void-y fate (“manipulate”) while also finally deciding when to let go (“unlock”). And I’m not sure how to tie in her appearance on PoolGames, Inc. in which she sat in a hot tub drinking various types of alcohol, but it feels like it fits with the classpect, in some way. Witches may break the rules of their aspect, and while I’m not sure exactly how, I do feel like she’s breaking some void rules and choosing what parts of the aspect she wants (also a witch thing). Maybe my inability to pinpoint these reasons is part of why she’s a void player. Who knows.
  • Simone
    • Knight of Heart: Heart encompasses soul, motivations, emotions, and possibly attraction. Let’s focus on the last two. Two of Simone’s videos focus on her asking strangers on the street about a) which Joy-con is Sexier, and b) which Pokemon they would date. (Kinda horny things that are also definitely a theme with her.) Very, very focused on emotion and attraction. She brings motivation into it, too, by asking why. A knight “exploits their aspect as a weapon,” and honestly? She really drilled into those people. I wouldn’t say attacking, but it’s got that Vibe, and honestly a lot of these are based on Vibe. She’s also just a funny and honest/open girl in ways that strike me as a heart player. She is, of course, quite jumpy and scared of spooky games, and is quite controlled by her uhhh Feelings during them and voices such. But, she is shown to enjoy them nonetheless, the kind of courage one might associate with a knight. She could grow into it even more; room for character development. Knights also conceal their true selves; she’s suggested that despite her fear of horror games, she absolutely loses it in the moment when playing it. Gets buckwild. Maybe that’s it.
  • Rileigh
    • Maid of Heart: I haven’t listened to Still Buffering, but from what I know, she is a Teen and a sweet, sweet girl. Maids may be connected to sylphs, drawing a connection between her and her older sister; they’re also speculated as “made of,” “provider of,” or “protects with” aspect. Heart is the soul or essence of being, and her podcast is all about Being a Teen, something that everyone struggles, struggled, or WILL struggle with at some point in time, and is arguably essential to not only one phase of life but the entirety of one’s life itself. The time in which they learn who they are and find their essence, their soul. The definition of the word “maid” is either a server or an heiress; the former could be a metaphor for how Teens are often controlled by emotions in some way, and the latter could connect to her younger-sisterhood. Thanks, Teen.
  • Sydnee
    • Sylph of Breath: She’s a doctor. It’s a given. Making her life just seemed too obvious, and we already got that one heal-y thing going, but breath is also kind of important to living? I haven’t heard her podcasts, so a lot of this is just based on the Vibe I get. Please help.

I still need help figuring out Dwight, Rachel, and Teresa, plus more depth with Sydnee, since as I said, I’m not as familiar with them and their content and don’t have enough to go off of (like I did with some others here that idk as well).

I’ll update this as it happens!

What Your Seventeen Bias Says About You...

S. Coups/Seungcheol - You’re a SINNER™. First thing they point out in any picture is his thighs. Think he is both dad potential and Daddy potential, if you know what I mean. They’re probably the ones who are the bad influence in a group of friends - the crazy bitch everyone loves.

Jeonghan - Ship him with EVERYONE. No one is safe! He is a god among men to them. You would pay $500 to watch him take a nap. They worship his hair. He could tell them to dye their hair white and they would do it before he even blinked.

Joshua/Jisoo - They are probably angels or total sinners - there is literally no in between. Literally. They are the ones who will murder for their ship. They secretly write more smut and fanfiction than anyone else. Weak over his new piercing.

Jun - You were minding your own business until he stole your heart and now you’re a sinner. I’ve seen this boy turn people into hoes so fast it gave me whiplash. He knows his power and they both love and hate him for it. If you stan him, you’re probably the type who screams when he looks into the camera.

Hoshi/Soonyoung - They are probably class clowns or have always had a crush on them. You’re the hype person in a group of friends. Probably the ones who say a lot of puns.

Wonwoo - All you want is to see him with sweater paws. You are into the silent type. They die when he starts rapping, let alone SINGING. These stans are the quiet ones who stay out of drama and shipping wars and choose to just ship him peacefully. The cinnamon rolls in the fandom.

Woozi/Jihoon - Compare him to Yoongi and they will murder you. He is their genius and they will fight you if you make fun of his height. Loyal AF. They are secretly the most savage and live for Woozi chasing people with guitars.

DK/Seokmin - Literal sunshine. All they want if for him to be happy. He can hit any note and they’re flailing on the ground. Cinnamon rolls. They’re the mom friends.

Mingyu - He’s a walking visual meme. One second they’re making fun of his cheeto hair, the next they’re begging him for mercy with his killer visuals. I’ve never interacted with one who doesn’t hate him at least a little bit, but it’s more so hate because they’ve now devoted their lives to him.

The8/Minghao - Minghao is their lord and savior. Even when he’s dragging Mingyu, they think he’s adorable. I’ve never met one who isn’t super nice. Give him the best nicknames. They WILL fight you.

Seungkwan - They want to pinch his cheeks and maybe his butt too. Will scream when they hear him singing. These stans are the ones that will DRAG you. Don’t talk about his weight. They would sell their soul for him to speak English to them. (Kimbab kidding, am I right?)

Vernon/Hansol - Memes. You’re a meme, he’s a meme, we’re all memes! Yet at the drop of a hat they’re screaming over his body rolls and writing the most descriptive smut ever. They’re the ones you want to toss holy water on, yet also the ones who make you die of laughter.

Dino/Chan - Can’t get over his “glowup”. Say “THIS IS NOT MY SON” a lot. Don’t know what’s going on. Probably his mom even if they’re younger or the same age as him. Were once chill, but no longer.

Psh Soulmates! (Lucifer x Reader)

Lucifer x reader
Word Count: 555 (damn it! So close!)
Summary: Soulmates. You’re meant to love your soulmate, right? But what happens if your soulmate is a human hating, spiteful archangel?
A/n: hey, I felt bad for leaving y'all without anything for almost three weeks so heres a little drabble for you. I hope you enjoy it cus I found it quite funny in my sleep deprived state lol
Let me know if you want a part two!!

Ps. This is being posted from my phone so I’ll format it tomorrow lol k bye enjoy for now!

“What are you thinking about?”

“You,” I said monotonely.

“That’s cute,” Lucifer laughed.

“And how all the ways you could kill me right now,” I continued, still not looking at the angel next to me.

“Excuse me?”

“You could kill me in a hundred different ways right now,” I repeated now looking over at him. Lucifer looked confused and a little hurt.

“I would never-“

“Why wouldn’t you,”

“Because,”

“Because some psychic freak said so? She couldn’t see you were the devil, pretty sure she was just spouting off random shit to get her money’s worth,”

“You realise that physic freak was a messenger right? One of Dad’s personal mail men,”

“So?” I exclaimed, jumping up from my bed, “Why would the big G.O.D care about me and why the hell would he care about you!”

“Watch your tongue,” Lucifer growled angrily, he stood up slowly and squared me up, standing to his full height. I looked up at him with the same anger, lashing like flames in my eyes.

“Don’t tell me what to do,” I snarled.

“Don’t insult me,”

“Don’t insult me!“ I shouted back.

“Humans!” Lucifer exclaimed, throwing his hands up in the air and pacing to the other side of the room, “This is why I can’t stand you little cockroaches, you never know when do to what you’re told!”

“Excuse me but the entire reason you were cast down from heaven in the first place was because you didn’t do as you were told!”

“You can’t compare me to you mud monkeys!”

“Well, I just did, I sassed, “Just because you have a pair of wings and a broken halo does not make you any better than me or anyone else on this planet!”
“I don’t have a halo,” Lucifer snapped. “And we’ve gone off topic. Why would I kill you?”

“You explained that you’re self didn’t you,” I said with a sigh, “You hate humans, you hate every human in this world why would I be exception. I don’t do anything special. I am literally no body,”

“You’re my soulmate whether you like it or not Y/n,”

“I don’t like it,”

“Well tough, you’re stuck with me now,”

We both glared at each other hard, breathing heavy and the air was thick was anger and tensions. Then we sat back down and carried on watching the show that was on the tv before, like nothing happened.

“What would happen if I sold my soul?”

“I wouldn’t let that happen,”

“But if I did,”

“I’d get it out of Hell, you realise that I created Hell right. I can stop people becoming demons and I can make people demons,”

“So? I could persuade a demon to hide my soul from you,”

“You wouldn’t know that first thing about dealing with demons,”

“Really? They sound easy,” I shrugged.

“Fine, you know what, I’ll give you two days to try and sell your soul. See how far you get,”

“Oh really?”

“Really,” Lucifer smirked, cocking his eyebrow up and standing up to me with his hands on his hips, “You just tell them who you are and I’m sure they’ll do whatever you want,”

“Fine then, two days it’s on!”

“Wait, you’re actually going?” Lucifer grabbed my arm as I walked past him, I laughed and shrugged him off,

“Well, yeah. A challenge is a challenge Lucifer. If soulmates are meant to be similar in personality then you’ll know I would never back down from a challenge. Especially not one as fun as this,”

“You could get hurt,”

“And you’ll fix me again, it’s kind of what we do know apparently,”

“You’re insufferable,”

“Right back at you, wings,”

“Don’t call me that!”

About Dean’s next death (in fact... not a death at all)

I have just read this post by @tinkdw, that argues that Dean is “going to die”, in the sense of a metaphorical death, a destruction, or at least a shake, of certain core elements of Dean’s self that tie with his performance of his self. I want to add a couple considerations that I have written somewhere already but not really in depth, also I’m not sure where :P I was going to write this as an addition to the aforementioned post but I realized it was going to get long, so forgive me.

I think that if Dean dies this season - again, either an actual or a metaphorical death, where the second is more likely in my opinion for reasons I’ll explain later - it won’t be the first time (duh). So I think that if we want to understand the meaning of a possible death for Dean this season, we need to consider the meaning of Dean’s past deaths. Now, every death, semi-death, almost-death, kind-of-death Dean has experienced in the show has a meaning, or many meanings, but for now I’m going to focus on the two major, actual deaths Dean has experienced.

We’ve seen him die a lot of times in the show, but many of those times don’t really count. The deaths in Mystery Spot were not really real; the various times he and Sam visited heaven, the final one on-screen in Dark Side of the Moon, count more as visits to heaven than deaths, and the same can be said of Dean’s time in Purgatory. Yes, technically he dies to go to heaven, but the whole point was that he wasn’t going to stay there anyway. He experiences near-death situations multiple times, meeting reapers and Death in the veil, but again, he doesn’t really die.

Two are his deaths that actually count as such - the one at the end of season 3 and the one at the end of season 9. They’re different: one a ‘full’ death, where he went to hell and experienced demonhood (although only a little, so he didn’t turn into a demon at all, but he experienced what happens to a soul to make it eventually become a demon) in hell; one a ‘semi’ death, where he didn’t go anywhere but was simply revived, and experienced demonhood on earth.

His decision to sell his soul was a very complex decision, that contains a fundamental element of rebellion to John. His demon deal comes as the culmination of a season where Dean has been completely shattered by John’s last instructions to him - save Sam or kill him. Dean isn’t lying when he tells Sam, multiple times, that he feels relieved because he sees the ‘light’ at the end of the tunnel, that he’s almost happy because he doesn’t have to worry about the future since he doesn’t have it. Of course, he’s not really happy about going to hell, he’s understandably terrified, and when he finds out that hell-bound souls becomes demons, it gets even worse. But it’s not a lie that Dean sees an “out” in his premature death. By dying before Sam, by dying soon, he’s rejecting John’s plan for him.

Something of Dean Winchester irremediably died with his demon deal and his being dragged to hell, and it’s visible in the dream of his demonized self in Dream a Little Dream of Me - Dean shoots himself, he kills a part of himself. He screams his truest feelings about John to himself, and it’s something he can’t get back from. At the end, it’s the demonized self that snaps his fingers - the demon Dean wins, because going to hell, becoming a demon, it’s a rejection of what John wanted him to do, what John wanted him to be. Escaping John’s ultimate orders, check; becoming the thing John hated and feared the most, check. Hell, demonhood - they’re a rebellion against John.

His experience with the Mark of Cain is an experience of carrying the literal Darkness inside of him. In a way, carrying the Mark, being influenced by it, involuntarily carrying out the Darkness’ will of destruction, it’s basically an act of rebellion against the universe-scale equivalent of John - God. Even more: the first time he died, Dean was stopped from becoming a demon because angels were sent to rescue him on God’s orders. Dean becoming a demon is an act against God’s will in multiple ways. At the beginning of season 4, Dean is saved so that he can carry out God’s plans… and God’s plans include that he kills Sam. God’s plans align with John’s - apparently, there is no way Sam can be saved, Sam won’t be able to escape his destiny, so Dean, by saying yes to Michael, will determine his death alongside Lucifer’s. Dean is gotten out of hell to do what he so didn’t want to do, that the prospect of going to hell was kinda nice in comparison. He went to hell so that Sam could live, he gets pulled out of hell to kill Sam. He was almost okay with going to hell if that meant to avoid facing a situation where he needed to save Sam from evil, he gets pulled out to witness Sam succumbing to evil. God’s plans and John’s plans for him intersect: save Sam or kill him, where saving Sam is not an option.

And now, at the end of season 9, Dean, although involuntarily, manages to do what God had prevented him from doing the first time: becoming a demon. And becoming a demon, just as it would have been the first time, is the ultimate act of rebellion against the actual John. And not only he becomes exactly the thing John hated and feared the most, the thing that he wanted Sam to die rather than become; he also drops all the fucks he ever gave about John’s heavy legacy, spitting his truest feelings about John to Sam’s face. Just like he killed himself in the dream while admitting his feelings about John out loud, now he attempts to kill Sam while admitting his feelings about John out loud.

(Demon Dean did not intend to kill Sam originally. He just wanted to get away from Sam. He left him a note begging him to let him go, which speaks volumes. He doesn’t just leave, he feels the need to beg Sam to let him go. Of course when Sam doesn’t do that, Dean has to kill him - not because he wants Sam dead, but because he needs to stop Sam from trying not to let him go. It’s the same thing that happens in Brother’s Keeper - Death tells Dean to kill Sam because Sam will always try to get Dean back, and that would be disastrous. Similarly, demon Dean wants to kill Sam because Sam will always try to get Dean back, and demon Dean needs to be let go.)

Anyway, I digressed -

Both Dean’s deaths, the major ones, were acts of rebellion against John and God (where God is basically a large-scale equivalent of John). I think Dean’s next death - the third, and three is an important number - will be the ultimate rejection of John.

Dean’s third death, though, won’t be an actual death. There is a progression: the first one is a proper death, he goes to hell, gets buried, and actually stays dead for months. It’s a death. The second one is not really a death (Crowley himself says so), his soul does not leave his body, does not go to an afterlife realm, but stays on earth. It’s a death that is actually a transformation. The third one is bound to be not a death at all, but ‘only’ a transformation.

Now let’s focus on an element: after selling his soul, Dean faces himself. In the dream in 3x10, he externalizes his feelings about John to himself, and attempts to kill himself.

After becoming a demon, Dean faces Sam. In 10x03, he externalizes his feelings about John to Sam, and attempts to kill Sam.

Now, who is he going to face next, who is he going to externalize the truth about what John was to him? Every arrow in the narrative points to Mary.

Of course it will be different than the previous times - Dean has settled his issues with the Darkness, he won’t be a demon, he won’t try to kill Mary properly speaking - but it will be some sort of metaphorical killing of Mary, just like the death will be a metaphorical death for Dean (of course, Mary might be killed and Dean might die, but the idea would still stand). Dean needs to ‘kill’ Mary’s assumptions and he needs to let parts of himself die. Of course I’m not talking about a disappearance of the parts of Dean that make his façade - which are real parts of Dean, just not exclusive and comprehensive - but the reasons those parts exist as a façade. He needs to let the John in him die, in the sense of the grasp that John’s abuse has on Dean’s construction of self.

I think I’m losing clarity as it’s getting late and I only have so much brain power, so I’m going to stop here hoping that what I’ve written makes sense. Let me know your thoughts!

Matters

Summary: Mickey rejects Ian and says he’s not gay, but gets jealous when he sees Ian with another boy. He then comes out to Ian and they fool around in a closet.

Word Count: 1396

Notes: I should be posting another request tonight :)


Ian and Mickey were at work, but they weren’t speaking, instead they were reading magazines— well Mickey was trying to at least. Ian had been full on staring at Mickey for what felt like an eternity, and for some unknown reason Mickey didn’t snap at him. He didn’t like this kid, right? Even though he thought about him all the time, worried about his well being, and always wanted to see him, Ian Gallagher meant nothing to Mickey Milkovich.

Eventually though Mickey knew he needed to get Ian out of his haze. “The fuck you lookin’ at?” He speaks without a serious threat.

Ian shakes his head and looks down. “Nothing. It’s nothing.” That response caused Mickey to shrug and go back to reading his magazine.

Suddenly, Mickey felt Ian’s eyes land on him again. “Gallagher, what the fuck?”

“Um, I just-I–”

“Spit it out,” Mickey said as he crossed his arms.

Redness rushed to Ian’s cheeks as he was clearly about to either say something embarrassing or stupid. “Um, well, I was just wondering if we’re a couple. Like, um, are you my boyfriend?” His eyes slowly go back to Mickey as silence is the initial answer.

“What the fuck, Gallagher? We fuck, that’s it. I’m not a fucking faggot,” Mickey spat at Ian. Every word he said to the redhead hurt, but he assumed that it had hurt Ian worse. “I’m not gay,” he said almost more to convince himself rather than Ian.

Anger and sadness ran through Ian. As tears welled up in his eyes, he slammed his magazine down of the table. “What the fuck ever, man. I’m fucking out of here,” he puts his coat. “See ya, Linda. My shift’s almost over anyway,” he said to the camera before storming out of the store.

Mickey was fighting all the urges he had to run after the redhead because it was pointless. He doesn’t give a shit about what Ian does, well he tries not to at least.

* * *

The next day, Mickey had to go into the high school to collect drug money from some little wimpy kid. He knew he wouldn’t get caught at the school because though the stoner he was selling to was young and immature, he was a sneaky fucker.

After he had gotten the money and started to exit the school, he saw a certain redhead out of the corner of his eye. It looked like Ian was talking to someone, but he couldn’t see who because a locker was blocking him. Mickey started walking closer, and abruptly stopped when the other kid came out from behind to locker to kiss Ian on the cheek. The shorter unknown bleach blond hair boy then ran off into a classroom, leaving Ian to scavenge through his own locker.

Leave, leave, leave, Mickey’s mind was saying, but something was stopping him. It doesn’t matter. Get out, he thought to himself over and over again. It didn’t work though. Instead he felt a flame burning from his soul as he started walker forward.

Eventually he was so close that he reached out and slammed Ian’s locker shut, causing the redhead to jump back. “What the fuck, asshole?” Ian spoke coldly.

Mickey grabbed by the arm, and dragged him into the nearest janitor’s closet. He disregarded Ian’s protests as he locked to door behind him.

“The fuck are you doing, Mickey?” Ian rolls his eyes in annoyance.

“What? That toe head back there your boyfriend?” Mickey unattractively snorted. He didn’t even take notice to the fact that he sounded like a jealous bitch at the moment.

A cocky smirk appeared on Ian’s face. “You jealous or something?” He snickered.

“Fuck you,” Mickey spat. All of a sudden though, that same voice in his head said, fuck it. “Yes.”

Ian began to walk forward to get himself closer to the Milkovich boy. “Why? We just fuck, don’t we? No need to be jealous. You’re straight.”

“Fuck off, Gallagher,” Mickey said as an instinct. “I’m gay, alright? There I fucking admitted it,” he shook his head in defeat.

Ian was now so close that they could feel each other’s breaths. “Better fucking prove it to me.” He had an unusual amount of confidence in his voice, and it was undeniably making Mickey’s dick harden.

Mickey pushed Ian back and undid his pants. Ian didn’t do anything though, he just watched with an amused look of his face. “Think we should do it a little different this time. I could really fucking prove it to you,” he spoke seductively as he dropped his pants.

“How’s that?” Ian smirks. He couldn’t hide the surprised gasp that came out when Mickey lunged himself forward and started undoing his pants for him. This had literally been something he would dream about.

Mickey got close to Ian’s ear to respond. “I wanna blow you and I wanna fuck you,” he whispered. “Wanna fill you up.”

The words made Ian bite his lip. He felt like he was about to cum just from hearing Mickey act so possessive. Another reason is, he’s never been fucked before. Ian’s always been the one to do the fucking, but he would have anyone else change that, he’d want it to be Mickey.

Mickey kissed Ian’s shoulder and then neck. He was full of surprises right now. “You want that? You want me inside of you?”

“Fuck, yes,” Ian whimpered as Mickey wrapped his hand around Ian’s cock.

He started stroking it up and down, and then he fell to his knees and gathered all of Ian’s length into his mouth. He was doing ungodly twists and licks with his tongue that were making Ian let out the most pleasurable tone. Mickey smirked around Ian’s dick when he saw Ian with his jaw dropped wide open and his eyes rolling back.

“Don’t wanna cum yet. N-need you in me,” Ian demanded shakily.

Mickey licked up the last bit of precum before kissing his way back up to Ian’s neck. The redhead could not believe what Mickey was doing to him, but he loved every second of it.

Suddenly Mickey separated mouth from Ian’s neck. “Hands and knees,” he insisted, and Ian obliged. “You sure you’re ready, I’m not prepping you for shit.”

“Get the fuck in me!”

Mickey laughed as he licked he hand and lathered the spit onto his own dick— they had no lube so this was the only option. He lined himself up and thrusted his cock into Ian. “Holy shit, you’re tight,” Mickey forced himself to say. “Feels good.”

As Mickey was thrusting himself back and forth, he also kept and hand around Ian’s dick— giving him the best handjob he’s ever gotten. “Fuck,” Ian panted.

Mickey placed hard kisses along Ian’s spine, as if he was claiming his territory. “All. Fucking. Mine,” he said between kisses.

“H-holy fucking shit,” Ian said breathlessly and he felt Mickey hit the right spot over and over again. “Gonna cum, k-keep going.”

After a few moments, Ian and Mickey both finished at the same time. Mickey fell onto Ian’s back after filling the boy up and let out a faint giggle.

As Mickey rolled off Ian, the redhead watched. “We’re gonna have to switch it up more often—” he gets cut off by Mickey crashing their lips together. When the separate, Mickey begins to redress, so Ian does the same as he broadcasts an overly smitten grin.

When they’re both dressed, Mickey is about to open the door when Ian stops him. “So, are we together?”

Mickey bites his tongue, but that same voice says, fuck it, once again. “Said that while we were fucking, didn’t I? He held back his own smirk as a big grin plastered onto Ian’s face.

Ian nodded and then motions for Mickey open to door. When they walked out, Ian look from the closet to Mickey. “Guess you’re really out of the closet now,” he said in amusement.

Mickey punched him in the arm as he realized the pun that Ian had made. Truthfully he wanted to smile the way Ian was at the moment and make silly jokes, but for right now, this was a lot— he did feel relief and happiness though. The two boys then left the high school and spent the day smoking and fucking, finally living in their own world of freedom.

The White Princess Live Blog Episode 3

Here’s my live blog of TWP Ep. 03.  What a wild ride, eh?  Anyway, it’s 5 pages long and full of snark so… enjoy!

Yeah, just throw us right into a childbirth scene.  that’s not jarring at all.

Yeah, IDK why he’s sending Jasper either - seems like a bad idea if there’s a rebellion on this side of the pond.  But whatever.

How is Lizzie just now thinking of this all-important curse?  Been pregnant like 8 or so months and she’s just now worrying about that???

Oh I forgot EW’s imprisoned in the palace.  Looks like we get to see Plotty McPlotterson plotting it up.  Yeah, Feminism™!  Holy Hell! Lizzie’s been in confinement for two months?  That aint right??? Confinement is only supposed to be a month — and if this baby is supposed to be secretly ~~premature~~ that timeline just doesn’t work.  If people are supposed to think this is a full term baby, she would have been going into confinement 3 months before birth so??? I just???

On trans* Yuri Plisetsky

I’ve seen this headcanon around a few times, here and again, but I haven’t really seen a detailed investigation or given it too much thought until today.

I think what convinced me, really, is Yuri’s all-precluding fear of puberty ending his career.

“I only have a narrow window of time before my body changes. I’m going to take advantage of everything I can right now to win.”

Now, at first, this doesn’t seem to make any sense. His mentor (with whom he is disillusioned) is Viktor, who’s 27; Yuri is 15 and clearly pre-pubescent. Hell, even Yuuri is 24, and he’s at the beginning of his career. There’s boys there who are 17, 18, 19, Yuri’s chances don’t end at 15 years old and his first adult competitions.

One could argue that he’s trying to beat Viktor’s record, but… if so, then why the comment about puberty?

And he doesn’t only bring up his body once, but twice. Considering how few lines he got overall, that’s saying something.

What does he say to Lilia?

“If selling my soul is what it takes to win, I’ll give you this body, no holds barred.”

Once again, it COULD just be Yuri being a drama queen, but… why this phrasing specifically? “This body,” not “my body,” or even “myself”? Selling his soul, soul vs. body?

And after winning second place, he looks legitimately ready to cry– that kind of despair doesn’t belong on the face of a boy who’s placed that high despite all the odds. It does, however, in the light of a boy for whom this might be his only chance.

Also interestingly, all of Yuri’s costumes he’s performed in are distinctly effeminate. This might seem trivial, but the show hasn’t shied away from gender symbolism before (“I am the beautiful woman who seduces the playboy,” “I wore a costume that suggested elements of both male and female genders”), and Yuri is given the title of “fairy,” on top of, in the recent episode, being dressed in pink with his hair braided back. (It seems almost symbolic that with every defeat, he wears a less and less masculine costume? Potentially. I don’t know.)

Additionally, he uses the term “баба” for Lyudmila. Now, sure, this has the literal meaning of “hag,” but its usage… if a more adept Russian speaker than I can correct me, but in my experience growing up with the Polish language, the term “baba” would be used in a derogatory sense towards women as a whole, thus setting oneself apart from them (“ach, te baby!” = lit. “oh, these hags!” = colloq. “(sigh) women!”). The nearest English phrase like that is when old cartoons talk about “a dame!,” immediately identifying the speaker as a man… except баба is considerable more derogatory.

Also, when he’s alone with Lyudmila and the other girl (i.e. not putting thought into putting on much of an air in a public place), he sits with his legs crossed in a feminine position. (Additionally, many of the friends he’s had for years and skates with on his home rink are women?)

Now, testosterone is a banned substance in competitive sports, including ice skating. It’s very likely that puberty blockers would also be classed as banned substances. This means that, as long as he’s skating competitively, Yuri would effectively be unable to transition as long as he’s ice skating professionally.

“If selling my soul is what it takes to win, I’ll give you this body, no holds barred” suddenly sounds a lot more ominous.

…Final clue, he’s based on a female ice skater, Julia Lipnitskaya. But that might not even be relevant at all.

Just a thought.

Is Dean's Behavior is Comparable to Sam's?

This is in regard to your post about whether Dean’s actions have been just as bad as Sam’s, and why one might excuse Dean for let’s say, something like the MOC, but be angry at Sam for his S4 demon blood drinking/teaming up with Ruby arc.

First, let me preface this by saying, I’m sorry for the small book I am sending you!

Secondly, I guess I have a different story than most Dean fans. I came to the show WANTING to be bibro. In fact, I came to the show WANTING to like Sam specifically (because the friend who introduced me to the show liked him). I came for the epic bromance. I came with excitement and anticipation. I was sorely disappointed because Sam’s actions and his attitude were not conducive to what I’d consider good or even acceptable behaviors/attitudes [To add, spn is not my first rodeo. I analyze most everything I read/watch in this manner, and I watch A LOT]. So, I do tend to trust my instincts here. I don’t dislike Sam because I’m biased toward Dean and can’t cut Sam some slack. I dislike Sam because of how he behaves in the story. The one bias I do have, comes not from Dean, but from the narrative’s attempt to excuse or erase the behavior I find upsetting or distasteful. It only makes me MORE angry and incensed over it (and that sometimes makes Sam’s behavior seem worse to me). Worse still, is that the story often tries to do with through Sam, himself, which again only worsens the character in my eyes. It’s one thing to do something bad. It’s another thing to then excuse yourself for having done it and demand everyone else excuse you as well (including the people you harmed in the process).

I’m going to be as civil as I can, but I’m going to say that in no way is Sam’s behavior comparable to Dean’s in 90% of these instances.

I guess if you removed all of the context for these situations completely and decided that it didn’t matter, then perhaps they could be semi-equivalencies? But even that feels like a stretch to me, and I’m not understanding why context wouldn’t matter. On the contrary, I feel like context matters a great deal. A man shoots someone and kills him. It matters whether he shot because the man was threatening to kill his wife and he felt he had no other choice, or if he shot because he really, REALLY wanted the guy’s car to get away with the crime he’d just committed. On the surface, yes both men shot and killed another person. But while I would find understanding for the first scenario, I wouldn’t for the second (This is not necessarily meant to be a comparison of Dean and Sam, it’s just to highlight why context matters and why it’s something I heavily consider when judging an action).

That said, I’m all for examining why I think certain actions in certain contexts are understandable or even good, while I find others to be cruel or wrong. My reasons for being angry at Sam’s actions is often heavily based on the context of those actions, what Sam knew or should have known when he chose to act, his attitude and expressed reasons behind the action, and lastly his response to being confronted with his bad behavior.

So with that in mind, I’m going to dive in.

Sam’s stint with demon blood vs Dean and the MOC? These don’t seem very comparable at all. In this case, the actions themselves aren’t even comparable. One was done with a ton of prior knowledge, two years worth of lies and deception, a semi-cannibalistic addiction, violent physical assault, and lots of emotional abuse toward an already, notably broken brother. The other was done without any of that, with in fact coming to Sam, listening to his ideas on what to do about it, and working with Sam to correct it. One was a series of decisions that were made with multiple, on-going warnings, from multiple sources. Sam had plenty of chances to turn around, and a brother begging him to stop, even selling himself to give Sam another option, but Sam defended his choices each and every time and refused to behave differently. The MOC was a one-time decision of a hopeless and suicidal man that could not be taken back, even as he tried desperately to do so. One was done with plenty of notice that who was being risked (other innocents), while the other was done without any impression Dean would only be risking anyone but himself.

Here is a meta that explores it more in depth than I can here, taking a hard look at some of the context that is removed from S4 in a lot discussions. But just to add, here are a bit more context to show why Sam’s behavior S4 was so loathed and not really comparable to Dean and the MOC:

  • Sam’s knew that his powers were given to him by a powerful, evil demon with the specific purpose of having him lead a demon army in subjugating the world. He knew that the safety of others depended on him NOT succumbing to the influence of those dark powers. He knew that engaging those powers generally led to insanity/ murder/ going “darkside” and that with the single exception of Andy, ALL the other special kids who exercised those powers succumbed to the temptation. He knew that him going darkside would have serious repercussions for other people, not just himself. That it would at least lead him to murder innocent people and at worst lead to the destruction of humanity at the hands of a demon army. And yet he risked it anyway, not even so that he could stop a worse evil, but for revenge.

  • Throughout S4, both Dean and Sam were actively engaged in a war against demons and demon kind. Actually, one could say they’ve been in this battle since S2, and it’s just escalated to apocalyptic proportions by S4. Consulting with the enemy (even if you believe that enemy has defected to your side) while keeping it a secret from your comrades is…well wrong. It’s making the choice to share information FOR THEM, without their consent or approval. This would be different if Sam were off on his own, but he was not. He was working with Dean, the angels, and Bobby. Yet he gave a demon information about their plans and their activities without alerting them. This is a HUGE betrayal of trust (and would be considered treason in a RL situation). Ruby knew all their moves because Sam told her where they were and what they were doing. I understand that SAM decided to trusted her. But everyone else didn’t get to be part of that decision because he decided for them and lied to them about it.

  • Sam also knew that Dean was not comfortable with teaming up with or sharing information with Ruby. Dean had made it clear the he didn’t trust Ruby back in S3. It’s hard to imagine he didn’t know how much worse it would be after Dean returned from hell, the land of demons, where he was subjected to the worst suffering imaginable at their hands. Dean, who’d just spent decades of being abused and tortured by demons, did not get a say in telling one where he sleeps at night, was not consulted in the decision to tell a demon his whereabouts. Think about the level of violation that entails.

  • Sam started lying to Dean at the end of S2 and continued lying to him despite multiple opportunities to tell the truth. At no point did Sam tell Dean the whole truth. Even after Dean sold his soul for him. Even after Dean returned from the dead and begged for honesty. Nor after Dean apologized for over reacting to Sam’s deceptions, ceased commenting on Sam using his powers, thanked and worked with Ruby, and promised not to try to stop Sam from whatever Sam wanted to do. Sam’s lies were multitude (at least 12 that we see happening on screen), told with a straight face, and without remorse.

  • Sam used copious amounts of emotional blackmail to combat any questioning of his behavior and worse, to deflect any natural consequences from it after the fact. Dean, specifically, who was already in a vulnerable place, got to be the recipient of the deceptions, the gas-lighting, and manipulations. At one point, Sam graduates from emotionally abusive tactics and literally nearly strangles Dean to death.

NONE of this applied to Dean’s decision to take the MOC. Dean’s single moment of borderline suicidal decision making, which he had no reason to suspect would influence anyone else is…just not comparable. At. All.

I will also give you these links (part 1 and part 2) and this link, because they compare some other seemingly similar situations between the brothers, and highlight why I actually find them to be incredibly different, why I end up angry at Sam’s behaviors.

The next compare/contrast I was working on was going to be Amy/Benny anyway, so perhaps I’ll put something more together there. Until then, however, here is a brief bit of context surrounding the Amy situation that does not apply to the situation with Benny nor the situation with Emma (both of which Sam specifically compared to Amy).

When it comes to Amy, I do think Dean was wrong, not because he killed Amy, but because he lied about it. He said he wouldn’t and then he did it anyway. This is why I don’t really fault Sam for being angry (though the abandonment was a bit much, imo). However, Amy and Benny were nothing alike. Amy was monster who’d murdered four people in cold blood (despite her reasons), who Dean suspected may kill again. Sam was only barely acquainted with her. They weren’t friends and weren’t planning to be friends. Sam wasn’t going to stay in contact with her and had no plans to spend more time with her. Aside from the one, incredibly brief memory, they had nothing to do with each other. The one afternoon Sam had spent with her was not enough to really know her or vouch for her character, especially as that was years and years ago. I do not think Sam’s lie back then, though he kept it from John and Dean for years, was particularly wrong. Yes he let a monster go, but she had saved his life and wasn’t killing anyone. He had reason to believe she wouldn’t kill anyone, and reason to believe his father and brother would kill her none-the-less. That was all fine.

But Amy’s track record didn’t hold. That changed when she killed four people. And Dean, talking to a Sam that’s been hallucinating so bad he nearly blew Dean’s head off a few eps before, has NO reason to trust that she won’t do it again (or even that she’s really done this time and hadn’t just used her history with Sam to get away with it). Even if she was sincere, she’d murdered multiple human beings in cold blood and fed them to her offspring.Worse, she only stopped after she was irrevocably caught the second time. She deserved to be hunted. Dean should’ve told Sam the truth of that, and trusted that he could handle it, mentally unstable or not. But this to me wasn’t a heinous wrong, even if it was wrong. And what happened when he was caught? Dean apologized. Sam abandoned Dean without a word and gave him the silent treatment for several weeks. Dean was more than aptly punished for his digression.

Now, what about Benny? Dean fought beside Benny for a year, during a time when it seemed he was being abandoned to die in a land of horrors, by both his brother and his best friend. Benny became a true, invaluable friend, to Dean. Someone he knew intimately, someone he trusted, and the only real person he could talk to about blood washed reality of purgatory. First, he was forced to abandon this friend at Sam’s insistence, because Sam was jealous (despite Sam usually being the one advocating for “good” monsters). That alone was unfair and mean, and horrible considering Sam KNEW Dean had PTSD from it and he himself was doing nothing to help (he basically told Dean “your fine” right after Dean got done telling him how not fine he was. Plus, Sam kept trying to dictate that Dean had no right to be angry or upset over the abandonment, but that’s another issue). He basically forbid Dean from having contact with the one person he could turn to for support and then also offered no support himself.

During Southern Comfort, Sam prefaced his intention to kill Benny, again because Dean claimed Benny had treated him better than Sam had. Sam put an unstable man back in the field (Martin would’ve been a danger to innocents no matter what Sam had put him on) and sicced him on Benny specifically (because apparently he wasn’t satisfied with just keeping Dean and Benny apart). Benny was not killing anyone, wasn’t doing anything other than trying to reconnect with his relative. When Benny was suspected, Dean did not ask Sam to let Benny go if it were ever proven he’d killed someone, he only asked to have time to check to make sure he had. Sam promised Dean that, then rescinded, stood by while the mentally unstable hunter that he secretly hired to follow Benny knocked Dean unconscious. Then they both chained Dean to a radiator and went to kill his friend without any further checking. The only reason Sam didn’t succeed in his intended murder is because Dean interfered, something he was chewed out for from multiple people and later apologized for.

Do you see how these situations are not the same?

And what about Emma? I’ve written here, a little about my anger at the way Emma was treated, by Sam and also by the narrative. But I’ll also write a little more. Unlike Amy, Emma ALSO hadn’t killed anyone yet. Why did Sam suddenly change his policy on giving monsters a chance, especially considering the fact that 1) Emma was a child that had, through no fault of her own, been brainwashed and 2) she was literally Dean’s biological daughter? That alone, (for Dean’s sake) should have afforded her some mercy in Sam’s eyes, even if he’d completely stopped caring about giving monsters a chance (which we see later, that he hasn’t). 3) Sam paused and clearly heard Dean talking her down. She was not moving to attack. So why did he kill her?? The narrative, through Sam no less, suggests the reason is because of his soreness over Amy. It specifically has Sam justify his killing of Emma by bringing up Amy. And how does he do it? Sam shoots her in front of Dean—when she was not attacking, when he could have easily disabled her instead—and then proceeded to berate Dean for hesitating because if Amy died, so should she. This was Dean’s literal child, and yet he’s condemned for even WANTING to give her a chance. Do you see how that’s upsetting and NOT the same at all as killing a verified, serial killer who’d people’s brains to her kid and was not even a decent acquaintance Sam’s (b/c most acquaintances we’ve met more than one time)?

And I won’t even go into the Amelia/Lisa situation accept to say this: Dean did not abandon Sam to a terrible fate when he settled with Lisa, even though he KNEW Sam was technically dead. He looked for a way to get him out (that wouldn’t release lucifer again) and eventually found one. Sam did not have any sort of remains to suggest that Dean was dead (in a world with teleportation none-the-less) and he did nothing to check to see if Dean was in fact dead or not. He assumed, and he did it in a way he’s tried to do before (see S1 Devil’s Trap. Sam suggest they do the same to John, so he can justify abandoning their dad in pursuit of his own vendetta), and then quickly got rid of any way for others to contact him,. He did it so fast Kevin couldn’t even get through (and he even KNEW where Kevin was. He could’ve at least called someone else to rescue the boy). I won’t even talk about the aftermath of their returns here, and how Sam behaves when Dean returns because I’ve already gone on for far too long.

My ultimate point is this: context matters. It’s not just what Sam does, but how and why, his attitude and the way he treats those around him both during and after he’s done it (it’s also how he demonstrates a disregard for others in general). There are things I don’t really like from both boys, but can excuse because in context it’s rather understandable (Sam cutting off ties when going to college for example, or Dean being rough and unstable right after purgatory). But when it comes to things like Sam’s treatment of Dean throughout S4 and 5, Sam’s abandonment of Dean in S8, Sam’s attempt to murder Benny and him killing Emma, there is really nothing Dean does that I can compare it to. Even at Dean’s worst, his heart is clearly in the right place and he isn’t careless or selfish or cruel. I just can’t say the same for Sam.

I do so love to see your headcanon posts, so how about the RFA (plus V?) with an MC who is dealing with a devil persistantly after their soul? They have no interest in actually selling and that devil is constantly sending 'free samples' of what they'd get like diamonds and expensive things that MC just gifts or sells. This has been going on for years and that devil has no chance.

Hi there! I’m glad you like my headcanons(*^▽^*) this looks exciting omg poor mc

  • mc turns to him, “this guy here has been trying to get my soul for years. and it ain’t gonna happen” 
  • “but-” “no, listen, i’ve told you already. no.”

yoosung

  • actually yelled so loud the first time he saw it 
  • “mC WHAT IS THAT I THINK WE NEED TO CALL SOM EONE”

  • yoosung is in fetal position on the floor and looks up at mc 
  • “…what?” they turn back to yoosung, “sorry hun, this thing has been bothering me for a while now”
  • yoosung suddenly realizes that this changes a lot
  • like that’s how they got all those things to sell when they needed money..
  • he’s trying to process all this while mc is yelling at this devil and it’s trying to reason with them
  • …maybe he shouldn’t have drank all that milk before bed…
  • or maybe this was real life
  • “leave. now” mc says before kneeling down and touching yoosung’s shoulder
  • real life, then 
  • doesn’t really know what to make of it and just…forgets it happened

jaehee

  • honestly thank god it wasn’t in the cafe
  • i put the cafe through enough tbh
  • it did happen during a movie marathon, however
  • right in the middle of jaehee’s favorite song too
  • they were both singing along and the devil pops up and is like
  • “i could get you tickets to his next show, you know?”
  • jaehee screams and mc just rolls their eyes
  • “we’re friends with him. he can get us tickets. and we’ll pay for it, too. like responsible people. and no, you can’t have my soul”
  • jaehee is actually speechless
  • the devil tries to offer something else
  • mc shuts it down again
  • when it disappears, jaehee finally gets her words back, but barely
  • “mc…what-” “don’t worry about it, love. it’s been bothering me for a while now. but i think it’ll stop with you here”
  • …at least that comforts her 

jumin

  • puts his book down

  • mc sighs, “i told you it was, dear. now if you would please excuse me”
  • they turn around and gestures around them “you can’t even try to tempt me with anything anymore! i don’t need anything. i don’t want anything. you gave me none of this and you still won’t get my soul. leave me alone!’
  • jumin actually thinks that was so cool omg
  • mc just stood up to a devil, he picked the most amazing spouse wow 
  • the devil looks around and admits defeat

  • then his pops up
  • now both of them are so irritated 
  • they manage to chase them away and continue on with their day
  • and later they sit with tea and literally just trash talk their devils

Dear Steroliners

I have been lurking the steroline tag and your beautiful gifs/metas/fan fictions for awhile now. I don’t have my own tumblr/twitter presence, and I’ve never felt the need to weigh in until now, other than some random asks I’ve thrown at kmze. But it must be said, or it will continue to haunt me: this finale was completely bogus and should be thrown in the dumpster. I felt like maybe writing this out will help me get over the tragic and senseless end of those two adorable puppies, Stefan and Caroline. So here it goes.

There was so much NOPE in this finale it’s hard to know where to start, but I’m going to focus on the most obvious: Stefan’s death.

I don’t object to the notion that a Salvatore brother had to die. They’ve evaded death for far too long, and left way too many bodies in their wake. I don’t think any of us expected both the Salvatore brothers to make it out of this show alive. Would I have preferred it to be Damon that died, or at least to have the brothers both go out in a blaze of glory? Fuck yes. But I could have handled Stefan dying, and Damon living, had it been handled in a way that made even a shred of sense. It was not.

A sacrificial death, when done right, can be a very fitting way for a show to go out. See: Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s finale. 15 year old me shipped Buffy and Spike (I know, I know, quite a toxic relationship, but moving on). So I was bummed as heck when Spike died in the finale. But the way he went out was just so damn fitting I could not be that mad. He sacrificed himself to save Buffy, to save the Slayer-ettes and the rest of the Scoobies, and literally the entire world. It was necessary and rooted in the plot and was therefore heroic and did a heck of a lot to redeem him of his terrible deeds. It fit the narrative, it fit the character’s arc, and it was satisfying, which took the edge off the tragedy.

Now, let’s compare that to Stefan’s death shall we? Was his death necessary to save the world? Nope. It was not even necessary to save Mystic Falls, since Bonnie had found a way to control the hellfire and send it to hell, or at least divert it. It was arguably necessary to kill Katherine and destroy Hell, but like, there’s nothing particularly noble about destroying Hell? There were tons of bad people in Hell, people that should arguably have stayed in Hell and not been given a “get out of Hell free” card. There did seem to be some not terrible people stuck in Hell (Vicky was irritating but not evil) but maybe since Cade was dead this whole policy of throwing everyone who ever screwed up once in their lives, into eternal torment, no longer applied? Katherine is a cut-throat queen but I don’t see her being this petty. Unclear, but either way this Hell mythology was just too murky for a set-up wherein destroying Hell equals redemption. So far, I fail to see how this action redeemed Stefan’s tattered soul and granted him his peace.

Okay so let’s assume I’ve missed something. (I very well could have. I only watched the finale once and I doubt I’ll ever be able to bring myself to watch it again.) Let’s assume for the sake of argument that in fact the whole “stabbing Katherine with the dagger at the very moment she is immolated thus ensuring she dies in Hell and Hell is destroyed” was a very necessary and heroic act in the grand scheme of things. So at least one of the Salva-bros had to die. The choice of who gets the axe should be based in the narrative, yes? Maybe the brother who showed up in Mystic Falls in season 1, all gleeful about tormenting his brother and making the residents of Mystic Falls suffer, would be a good choice for the one who ultimately saves the town? Whose ongoing arc has been about becoming a better, less-selfish man, one capable of putting his brother before his own needs? Who, two episodes before, had proven that he was ready to be that hero, and had died in a similar sacrifice, but had miraculously come back from it with no explanation? Maybe the writers had a plan? HAHA BITCH YOU THOUGHT.

Instead, Stefan dies because “Damon is the better man.” Hahahahahah lol lol lol brb LAUGHING FOREVER. I don’t need to list the many actions/character traits that Damon has displayed over the years, that make it emphatically clear that he is not the better man. At best he is the equally-as-terrible man. Stefan killed Enzo, yes, which was painful, mainly because of its effect on Bonnie (Enzo was also a murderous trashbag, let us never forget). But Damon killed Tyler, tried to kill Bonnie, and abducted a couple of 4 year olds and tried to sell them to the Devil in return for his own soul, and that was just in season 8. I can’t even remember all the times he killed Alaric and Jeremy, I have literally lost count. Many of you have already covered Damon’s many crimes in your well-reasoned and thoughtful metas and commentaries. They do not need repeating. Damon is a selfish, impulsive, weak-willed, predatory psycho murderer. We have the receipts in the form of seasons 1-8 of this show. I say this as someone who is actually a big Damon fan (I like his snark) and was all about Damon and Elena in seasons 1-4, despite how terrible they were to Stefan. (The actors had lit chemistry back then, sue me.)

Stefan is a psycho murderer too, but at least he feels bad about it. I invite anyone to explain to me how saving Damon, and giving him a human life, tilted the karmic scales in Stefan’s favour. One mass-murderer dying, so that another mass-murderer can live, does not redeem the first mass-murderer, particularly when the major crime the first mass-murderer seems to be paying for, is the murder of a THIRD MASS-MURDERER (Enzo). I just refuse to believe that the universe’s sense of justice is this out to fucking lunch.  

Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the most glaring plot hole in this clusterfuck of a sacrifice=redemption narrative, which is obviously that DAMON DIDN’T HAVE TO DO SHIT TO FIND REDEMPTION/PEACE. NOTHING NADA ZILCH. Thus undermining the entire justification for Stefan’s death. Dear god, what a mess.

I can sort of see how in Stefan’s deeply troubled mind dying for his brother would redeem him, because he loved the shit out of his brother, despite how rarely Damon actually deserved that love. Which brings us to another high-key problematic aspect of this finale, which is the assassination of Stefan’s character development. Over 8 seasons, we watched Stefan struggle with his mental illness, his addiction, his complete lack of self-worth, and most importantly, his suicidal tendencies. Once he was able to remove himself from the Triangle of Doom, he actually made a lot of progress! He stopped referring to the Ripper in the third person, he got a handle on the whole blood thing, and when he finally opened his eyes about Caroline, he found a healthy, happy, mutually supportive relationship for pretty much the first time in his entire life. He didn’t ever fully let go of his dependency on Damon, but by the time season 8 started, he was planning a life with Caroline and clearly heading in that direction. His suicidal tendencies made a come-back, thanks to killing Enzo and the guilt that caused him, but by 8x13 he was like I WANNA LIVE, by 8x14 he was re-proposing to Caroline and talking about growing old, and by 8x15 he was effing married to the love of his life and dancing and laughing with her at their wedding.

Then 8x16 comes around, and suddenly, he’s back to “I HAVE TO DIE BECAUSE OF WHAT I DID TO ENZO AND I WON’T BE ABLE TO MAKE UP FOR MY SINS BECAUSE I’M HUMAN AND DON’T HAVE MUCH TIME BUT DAMON YOU HAVE ETERNITY AND YOU’RE THE BETTER MAN” and I’m like THA FUCK? Did I imagine the previous 15 episodes/the previous 5 seasons? Is this the right channel? WHAT IS HAPPENING WHERE AM I RIGHT NOW?  

There are also so many plot holes when it comes to discerning Stefan’s own motivation for this sacrifice, directly out of the dialogue and HIS OWN DAMN MOUTH. He tells Damon that he has “an eternity with Elena” to make up for his own sins. But Stefan’s actions were definitely pre-meditated right? He knew he was going to give Damon the cure, so obviously Damon will not have an eternity to make up for his own crimes? Also Elena is a human now and Damon has been droning on about their human endgame plan for like 5 years now, ever since Elena went into her mystical coma? And then my personal favourite, when Stefan talks to Elena, he tells her he wanted her to have the chance to get to know human Damon. BUT EXCUSE ME as far as he knew Elena was stuck in the mystical coma until Bonnie dies, which everyone assumed would be 60-70 years from then, so seeing as how Damon will age and probably be dead by the time Elena wakes up, or at least very wrinkly and very old, how does he figure he is giving Damon and Elena their happily ever after? As far as Stefan knows, or at least SHOULD KNOW relying on concepts like logic and common sense, he just took away both Damon’s right to choose to die, AND Damon’s happily ever after with Elena, and this is full circle and remedies his original sin of forcing Damon to turn into a vampire and I’m just !?!??!!? I’M PHRASING THESE AS QUESTIONS BECAUSE I LEGIT WANT A FUCKING EXPLANATION SOMEONE PLS HELP.  

Oh and btw the whole Stefan sacrificing himself for Damon and Elena and making up for his original sin of forcing Damon to turn, was so effing murky in the actual episode it had to be explained in interviews by KW and JP, at which point KW made it clear that this entire nightmare happened because he is a 14 year old Stelena fanboy and didn’t watch the last 5 seasons of his own damn show AND NOW I’M ACTUALLY LAUGHING IT’S ALL SO RIDICULOUS.

So, cool. Stefan is dead, Caroline is widowed on her effing wedding day, I am emotionally gutted, and basically this all happened for virtually no reason my brain can discern. Very epic, so fitting, what a pay-off, much full-circle, argaahgaahfTHEFUCK.

When Caroline left him that voicemail, I couldn’t even enjoy the “I will love you forever” line because she also said “I understand” and I was like OMIGOD CAROLINE PLS EXPLAIN IT OUT LOUD CAUSE I SURE AS FUCK DON’T.

And even after all this, the writers are not QUITE done making a mockery out of the notion of consistency in story-telling. They decide that the last scene featuring Caroline Forbes-Salvatore, a character whose strongest traits are her loyalty to the people she loves and moral backbone, and who was widowed like 5 minutes ago from the viewer’s perspective, should be spent with Caroline receiving a letter from a murderous one-night-stand she does not GAF about. For the cherry-on-top, anyone who watches the Originals knows that the one-night-stand is currently suffering some sort of hell torment and hallucinating his actual true love, one Camille O’Connor. AND THEN THE WRITERS HAVE TO GO ON TWITTER to try and explain how the fuck this timeline could possibly make sense and Joseph Morgan is like “I’ve filmed all of season 4 lol what letter?” and I’m laughing again because this is total amateur-hour. Thank you to all the twitter users who have been dragging this joke of a writing team online, your salt is giving me life. Never has a moment of such cheap and blatant fan-baiting backfired so magnificently. I was planning on watching the Originals when it comes back but HAHA NOPE NEVER AGAIN JULIE PLEC, BACK TO THE DUMPSTER WITH YOU.

Anyways, this rant got out of hand. The point here is that I feel justified in completely ignoring this entire finale because of how little sense it made or even attempted to make. I’m sad a show I’ve loved for 8 years ended on such an absurd and poorly-plotted note. Perhaps I’ll eventually get around to writing some fan fiction in an attempt to create my own little alternative ending. In retrospect, I probably should have known better, but I hung in there because when TVD was good, it was really good. But damn, when it was bad, it was truly unwatchable.

Stefan and Caroline forever.

How I’d Ruin It: MST3k

Inspired by @tyrantisterror‘s post on breaking the Batman universe, here’s an outline of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode that I (and probably no one else) would like to see.

Kinga’s version of the Forrester experiment differs in one major way from Clayton and Pearl: the primary goal isn’t to drive Jonah insane. She tells us her real plan in the first episode: revive Mystery Science Theater 3000 (which was an in-universe television show during the days of Deep 13) and eventually sell the rights to Disney for a billion dollars.

This episode would take place a few years into Jonah’s imprisonment on the Satellite of Love. With the help of his robot friends, his riffing is as sharp as ever, but the ratings (we’ll ignore the Netflix format) are in a tailspin. Everyone makes fun of entertainment these days; MST3k no longer stands out in the comedy landscape it created. So Kinga decides it’s time for a mid-season shocker: she’s going to show Jonah a movie certain to break him once and for all. Not an abomination like Manos: The Hands of Fate or Invasion of the Neptune Men – Joel and Mike endured them both and kept on trucking. No, she has a different approach in mind to make her father and grandmother proud. Her confidence in its success is such that she’s already set a trap to lure the next host: a Moon 13 internship. Unpaid, of course.

“I’m sure they’ll cause a flame war or twenty, but the fans always get over it.”
