i'm still not sure if that was real

Happy father’s day!! friendly reminder that keith’s dad:

  • abandoned him “so many years” ago, and never even told him why
  • raised and left keith in a run down shack in the middle of the desert 
    • said shack doesnt even have a bed, so keith likely slept on this decrepit looking couch thing with this thin cloth for a blanket
    • because keith had no other relatives or place to go, and due to the shack’s location, enlisting in the garrison was likely one of keith’s only options 
  • his absent father also seems to be the root of all his abandonment issues, which is probably a big part of why he’s also so affected by losing shiro and has trouble opening up to people 
  • mr kogane also never told his son anything about being half-alien that could’ve possibly helped him understand why he feels so lost, or to help prepare him for anything that might happen with the galra in the future 
    • instead, he just leaves keith with the bom knife and tells him nothing about it
    • doesnt tell him anything about his mom either
    • this ensures that keith’s only way of finding out his past would be to endure a perilous cult-like initiation that either ends in “knowledge or death,” which could’ve totally killed him  
  • it might just be because keith’s having this weird nightmare vision, but his dad in bom sure seems…strange. like, how he keeps the windows blocked off and keeps telling keith everything will be fine if they just stay inside. if those lines were pulled from like a repressed memory or something, then the implications just…arent very good…

ya i just…. i would fight keith’s dad

Me, through tears: Fuck, dude, you sure are…

Hi my name’s amanda and I’m real messed up about Davenport. Catch me in your local broom closet crying about this gnome. You’re welcome to join me.

The Future/(is now)

I can’t believe this is something I saw with my own two eyeballs, because apparently all that’s happened so far wasn’t coincidence, or carelessness - apparently Dabb watched Season 8 and made a deliberate bet with someone - he’d make it gayer, or else. And so here it is, (almost) out of the subtext (Sorry, Dean and You can’t just go dark like that. We didn’t know what happened to you. We were worried. That’s not okay and I needed to come back here with a win for you and We’re just better together and I’d like that and THE TAAAAAAAPE). Honest to God, I think I read twenty versions of that fight yesterday as people scrambled to write pre-codas out of nerves and excitement, and they were all magnificent and yet, somehow, less shippy and less obvious and less romantic than what actually happened on the show, wtf? And Dean sulking in his room, Cas knocking at his door, hesitating, coming in? 

I swear to God - when Dean called him back, when he started telling Cas all those things - for a second, I actually believed he would yank on Cas’ tie and kiss him, because that’s always, always what happens in that scenario. Or, you know, Dean gets overwhelmed by his own feelings, by how much he’s just showed his hand here, and walks away. That’s also textbook fanfiction, and yeah, so it’s fluff instead of angst, but, come on - this is Supernatural - did anyone doubt it’d be angsty? Let’s just hope in a happy ending, because that Kelly voiceover (I love you. But we won’t ever be together. There is no happy ending for either of us.) gave me the creeps.

And what about the mind control, someone might argue. Mind control, schmind control. That’s like, the number one Prove that you love me forever and ever trope, and even if we’ve seen it before (if simply because Destiel has been built with every single love trope in the book, and, in this case, they used it over and over and over again), we’ve never seen its final form. During the crypt scene, Cas deflected instead of admitting the obvious (let’s be generous: maybe he didn’t know himself), and in the Bunker, Dean just barely managed not to kill Cas, and had to walk away before the Mark overpowered him, so no, that was not a good time either. So this thing we’ve been promised for a while - this My love for you is stronger than time or tide or evil curse - is yet to come, and with the way things are going, I’m feeling pretty optimistic.

Also: however Dean will read this when he wakes up, Cas is choosing love, and he’s choosing free will. He went to Heaven hoping they’d have a way out of this mess so that Sam and Dean would be safe, he stole the Colt so they couldn’t face Dagon and be hurt (which is text, by the way, not subtext), he went against orders because he felt that was the right thing to do (a human feeling, because angels are created for a mission), he stayed away from Sam and Dean to protect them - all of that is unangelic behaviour, and man, Dean and Cas are going to get into so many fights, aren’t they, because Cas learned how to love from Dean, and that means he’s got that same kind of stubborn, maternal, overbearing way to love Dean has, which means lots of I didn’t tell you because I love you and I walked away because I love you and I booped you to sleep because I love you and I really hope Sam’s going to stay out of the way, because there will be a lot of storming through corridors and huffing and outrage and Can you believe that bastard and it will be absolutely glorious.

As for the rest of it - though, to be perfectly honest, I barely noticed a ‘rest of it’ because my eyeballs were glued to the unbelievable Gay Feelfest unfolding in front of me - I’m really happy with it. I’m happy we’re finally talking Big Things again - Could either of you kill an innocent, do our parents determine our destiny, is there such a thing as innate character, and so on - and I’m happy with the insight we were given both in Kelly’s and in Dagon’s minds, and why they do what they do. I loved every scene Cas and Kelly had together, that kind of, We’re not heroes, and we may be worthless, but we’re what’s left vibe, and Cas’ smile when the baby was kicking, and I like where they’re going, how they’ll try to get this pregnancy to term. Sure, this baby’s got a lot against him - he’s Lucifer’s kid (although, we still don’t know who and what Lucifer was before he was forced to carry the Mark), and one of his temper tantrums could possibly destroy the Earth, but, then again, so could a lot of other things - he’s not special (to quote a famous tumblr post). And if we’re going with free will and self-determination of our own destiny, then we should have the courage not to nitpick: everyone should be able to decide for themselves, and this baby is no exception. 

(I mean, think about it. He’s clearly able to give anyone extraordinary powers - he gave Cas enough ammo to take down a bloody Prince of Hell - so he could have chosen anyone as his protector. He could have picked Dagon, he could have stuck with Kelly, he could have chosen any lesser demon or angel or random doctor they’ve been in contact with over the last few weeks - and yet he chose Cas, and Cas - as we’ve known for a while - is the curiosity, the abomination, the miracle: the angel who can love. No, I want to believe we’re headed towards good things here - narratively or otherwise.)

Final point: again, I know it’s not ideal to carry around a nuclear warhead in your belly, but the beginning of this episode gave me heavy The Handmaiden’s flashbacks (superb show, by the way, go watch it), so the fact they’re giving Kelly some kind of choice - that’s uplifting. Because yeah, maybe she’s slightly brainwashed, but this isn’t like any kind of brainwash I’ve ever seen on the show, because both Kelly and Cas are also lucid, completely themselves. They resemble most closely what Dean was like when he lost his memories, and I think now I’m going to go and cry forever at the implications. But hey, at least Cas’ got his own room at the Bunker and Yes, dumbass - we

spacey-fox  asked:

I know you probably won't answer this but I just wanted to say that you have helped me through some dark times, that I'm still in. Your videos have given me common ground to make friends, advice that I'm not sure I'll ever need, and good guide on what not to do and laughs when I'm feeling down. Youtube might not always been seen as a real or important job, but it really is. Thanks for doing it, and most of all, thanks for being you.

D: honestly, i have a lot of self-doubt and miscellaneous crippling self-esteem issues and i’m very cynical and tend to base everything around what the critics think. being told i have a positive influence on someone elses life means so much more to me than any kind of compliment. i’m not perfect and i don’t think i’m a big deal but seeing people say they’ve made friends through our videos or just smiled on a bad day is what keeps me going. i love you all and appreciate you all and now tumblr are saying it’s time to leave their office so this answer can’t be more articulate than this ramble as i type it.

thanks

Re: your villain Shinsou post, I always thought it would be a trip if he bluffed his way into joining the Alliance with the intention of gathering intel, basically using the lifelong misconceptions about him as a tool for good. Because he totally has the motive, and he could pass himself off as a believer of Stain pretty easily! (Anyways I'm choosing to believe in that art.....,,that he's gonna....turn on them eventually hahaaa)

That’s EXACTLY what I always think about!!!!!

Even tho he’s still young, I’m sure he would make a perfect double agent ( With some training of course ) I can imagine him going to the villains and pretend that he wants to joing them because he can’t stand to see how heroes behaves more like some celebrities than real superheroes. He might tell them about people never trusting him because of the nature of his quirk. He’ll make them believe that he can be a spy in the school for them, collecting ‘’informations’’ on the heroes and the events in the school. ( But he’ll never reveal anything true, just makes them believe that it is true ) He’ll slowly built up some trust in the villain league and become a big part of their team. Meanwhile, he reveals every informations he gets from the villains to the heroes who knows about his mission. ( No students can know about it, cause you know……………. The traitor may be one of them.. ) Only the teachers knows and they’re all impressed of his skills to stay among groups of villains without loosing his focus. If a villain had to discover his real mission, he would easily brainwash them to forget about it. 


And then when all the villains find out he was a double agent, he just says:

“ It was a logical ruse, you idiots ”

Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned - A (mostly) coherent rant!

There’s a reason why that ancient adage still holds weight. Because it’s true.

There is not a creature more dangerous, more deadly or more destructive on earth than a woman who hungers for vengeance. When she thirsts for blood, she will do whatever it takes to make a river of red flow. When she wants justice, she will do whatever it takes to see it is meted out. And when she wants to protect her own, she will do whatever it takes to protect her own and god save anyone who even dares defy her.

She will make you bleed with a smile on her face and wine in her hand.

This entire episode, all of it, made me see that side of Felicity completely for the first time. Digg is her brother and friend, and someone messed with him. She ate them alive.

We’d been getting glimpses of her struggle with the darkness inside her, her moral dilemmas, her swinging decision, but for the first time, I saw her accept, embrace and glory in her darkness.

It was fucking beautiful.

you know something i love about the ankh-morpork books that i’ve never seen in any other high fantasy series?

#1: technology. iconagraphs (ie.cameras), the clacks, disorganisers, the printing press and newspapers, railways. nowhere else in fantasy have i seen people inventing stuff. there’s also stuff like the post office and bank.

#2: it shows the everyday life of the city. sure you have a war and dragon attacks and conspiracies and revolutions, but you also get to see how these things affect the day-to-day life of the people living there. and you also get to see how the above tech affects things.

things change in ankh-morpork, just like in a real city. sure, sam vimes is still in charge of the watch and vetinari is still in charge of the city, but they change too, and they change in part because of the changes in the city.

Previously, on Season 7 of Game of Thrones:
  • Littlefinger: Hey, Sansa. I loved your mother. I love you. I am entirely at your disposal. Is there anything at all I can do for you?
  • Sansa: Go away. I can't stand you.
  • Littlefinger: Just let me know if you need anything.
  • Littlefinger: Hey, Jon. I loved your sister's mother. I love your sister. I offer you my full support. Is there anything at all I can do for you?
  • Jon: Go away. I can't stand you.
  • Littlefinger: Did you just try to strangle one of your loyal bannermen over a Stark girl? Are you sure you're not related to Aerys II?
  • Littlefinger: Hey, Bran. I loved your mother. I love her kids. I got you a present. Is there anything at all I can do for you?
  • Bran: Go away. I'm an emotionless void and I still can't stand you.
  • Littlefinger: I am incredibly bored.
  • Littlefinger: Somebody, please give me something to do...
  • Littlefinger: Hey, Arya -
  • Arya: You want to be cut open by another Stark?
  • Littlefinger:
  • Littlefinger: Fine.
  • Littlefinger: I guess I'll just try to stir up conflict for no real reason.
  • Littlefinger: It's how I fidget.
The signs as a disappointed fandom:
  • Apathetic as fuck; slowly but surely weaning themselves off the show due to the fuckery season after season: aries, taurus, gemini
  • The squad that fuck shit up on social media, wondering what the fuck is going on and borderline about to quit the show: cancer, leo, virgo
  • Legit glutton for punishment, for whatever reason is still holding onto hope that the show is gonna get better despite the fact that TPTB have let them down time and time again: libra, scorpio, sagittarius
  • The 'fuck this I'm out' squad, ain't loyal to shit but they the real winners cuz they sleeping easy at night after dropping the show: capricorn, aquarius, pisces
