i'm still not sure if that was real

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

anonymous asked:

OMG your manip officially killed me so thanks, I think!1!?? but for real though we might actually get a magazine spread with pictures just like that one with Louis in gorgeous clothing styled to perfection with an intimate interview where he can talk about the things that really matters to him and I am sooo ready for that!1! or am I?? 👀

Okay, so because I am a very considerate person 😉  here is a little taste of what might actually be the reality one day…

👀

The Houses as Bookworms
  • Gryffindor: absolutely adores books but still wishes they read more, takes really aesthetic book photos, doesn’t waste their time on a book they know they won’t like, pretty critical about book to movie adaptations, considers other people’s reviews before picking up a book, reads their books in class even when they probably shouldn’t, loves borrowing books from others
  • Hufflepuff: will plow through book after book and then not read for an entire month, attempts to organize books alphabetically or by colour but in the end just tries to squeeze them in anywhere, probably re-reads more old books than they read new books, only presents they want are books, may not finish books super quickly but loves them nonetheless
  • Ravenclaw: reads books at an alarming rate, can and will read on any form of transportation, wears glasses, instead of listening to music they’re actually listening to audio books, starts reading a good book but then gets distracted by another and completely forgets about the old one, usually critical of the protagonist.
  • Slytherin: attempts to read over 20 books at the same time, ships everything, loves it when they’re friends read a book that they recommend,they have to finish the whole series no matter what, gets defensive when someone doesn’t recognize them as a reader, wants to read all the books their friends have read so they can contribute their own opinions to discussions
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.

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

(Slapping some test colours on one of ~17 panels, which are about half roughed out as of tonight! …Not including the backgrounds, which are just sketched in…)

Thanks for sticking around during a period of silence on my end, friends! I had a busy couple of weeks, between finishing up my part of the job for an upcoming project launch at one office, grading a huge stack of papers at the other, and submitting a conference paper, and it left me with approximately enough energy to walk my dog and eat meals for a while there! If you ever want to chat with me and I’m not around on here, feel free to hit me up for my Discord details. 

Anyway, I’m still hoping to do a White Day comic–the one I promised last year, haha–in good time before I launch into some kind of multi-page project in the spring, but man! Time’s really zipping by. @_@

normality-dreamer  asked:

A guy I grew up with asked me "how can you have int'l women's day if gender is a social construct?" I was upset by the question mostly because I was embarrassed of how I didn't know how to reply. Maybe it's a stupid question, but clearly there's a genuine lack of understanding on my end and I'm so bummed about that because I thought I understood sex v gender v ?? Help!

while created by society, social constructs are still very real & have real influence over our daily lives. money, marriage, beauty even stop lights are all social constructs but I’m pretty sure you can’t just run a red light and use “it’s just a social construct!” as your defense. yes gender is socially constructed, it still plays a role in how we are treated & perceived by the world around us.

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

so last week i was catching up on some old mbmbam and there was this bit where the boys were talking about masking bathroom noises. Griffin 30 under 30 media luminary McElroy suggests the purely scientific concept of negative sound, because, for every sound there is it’s opposite sound that negates it. As he’s explaining this, the podcast goes silent mid-sentence.  I sit there and think- oh, it’s a demonstration. What a funny bit. That’s hilarious. 

The bit continues for like the next two minutes or something. I check my phone just to make sure it didn’t accidentally pause itself.

There was no episode playing at all. 

I had no episode of mbmbam, or any other podcast for that matter, downloaded onto my phone. 

There was no record of me having listened to anything at all nor can I find that episode again

now my sister thinks I straight up hallucinated a whole mbmbam bit and she constantly makes fun of me now with negative sounds

Happy Mother’s Day to all the fandom moms out there ~ YOU ROCK!!!

start the month off right/it’s microfic day!

Send me a prompt, a character (or two), and I will write you a micro-fic!

Micro-fic defined as five sentences (ish). maybe more. maybe less. have you met me

**also considering today’s date: this is not a joke! I’ll fill prompts you fling at me. :) fling!

You know, as a new Baby I can only say that I am actually so proud and happy for the Babys that stayed with B.A.P during their hiatus. I get lonely and sad when they don’t update SNS for weeks or even days and when they go quiet for a bit I get unusually upset, like I’m missing a part of my family. 

Babys that stayed dedicated with B.A.P through their hiatus I feel like kept B.A.P alive. They hyped them up for their return and worked really hard to get them back up there. Without some of you guys blowing up my tumblr feed when I was in another fandom I would have never fallen into this group and never realized how amazing beautiful worthy precious they were and without B.A.P I don’t think I’d be as happy as I am now. 

Like hella thanks to the Dedicated guys that stayed with the kings for so long, yall are the real reason B.A.P is still B.A.P and I’m sure without you guys we wouldn’t be were we are today, I wouldn’t be this carefree and excited about life and honestly just bless.

okay real question

human/AI differences aside, if SAM has enough control over Ryder’s body to stop their heart and restart it (read, control involuntary muscle movement in their body)….

do yall think he could just give Ryder a spontaneous orgasm

I know he’s still trying to figure out many aspects of humanity, like humor and our relationship with death, but how familiar is he with human sexuality huh

I’m just curious okay
  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she really means: connor murphy killed himself so early in the show we never got a chance to know how he's really like and get more in depth and the connor that shows up later on is just a manifestation of evan's lies. and when evan started the connor project it made everyone think connor as the connor he made up and ultimately making everyone forget the real connor and so real connor was forgotten and disappeared. sure evan confesses everything in the end but that's still so... skkskdnskakdbk help me im dying

Ok, so does that mean August is the real son of Mavis and Zeref?

That would explain why he’s so powerful.

And old.

And loyal to Zeref, the parent that raised him.

I’m still not okay with Zeref and Mavis having a child, though.

And if that’s true, then who is Larcade? Failed experiment of Zeref’s?
