i'm telling you i'm telling you we

my 2 cents on Pikelan throughout the series:

I think it was very right and good of Scanlan to apologize for his treatment of Pike throughout the episodes, and to promise to treat her like a person rather than a goal. If he realizes that he did something that may have hurt her, even if it was not his intention, or! even if she wasn’t actually hurt, of course he should apologize and make changes to instead be considerate. However, I never actually read his behavior towards her, even in the early episodes, as “creepy”?

A good part of that may be the players bleeding through to the characters–for instance when Scanlan was waxing eloquent about Pike and ended his description with “Breasts firm, supple–” it was definitely Ashley who said smugly “True, true”, not in character as Pike: but a big part about their interactions that made it not bother me the way a lot of ‘guy pursuing a lady who’s not into him’ stories was that Pike never seemed to be made particularly uncomfortable. A bit awkward at times, but then she also gets awkward when Vax says glowing things about her perfection, and even when she would kind of stammer “Oh, Scanlan,” it read to me as part exasperated, part flattered, part amused, but never frightened or uneasy (except inasmuch as she is uneasy about potentially hurting him [”I didn’t mean to be careless with your feelings.”]). It’s less of a pursuit and more of a dance, and Pike never doesn’t hold her own. Everything comes with a context, and something that might be harmful from an enemy or a stranger can be very different coming from a friend.

I know most of you probably don’t care but me and my best friend give each other weird nicknames on Messenger all the time. My best friend just changed my nickname to “Otec Růže”, which in English means “Father Rose”. I never told her about my legacy and she made this up from two different inside jokes we have but whatever, it’s funny to me and yes, the first thing I thought about was my Rose legacy, especially a certain red haired mommy :D

Me when someone says historical figures aren’t relatable

Yeah but did you hear about that time Schubert’s foot fell asleep while he was writing a letter to his brother and then he fell asleep because Schubert is 100% the most relatable composer ever


went to the beach & discovered my inner Lorde

Happy Birthday @nojuro !


okay so today was pretty GREAT 

I finally got to meet one of my absolute fave human beings in the entire world and he was the sweetest and most beautiful sunshine ever 

I honestly love this man more than anything and to finally meet him irl was just unbelievably emotional, I don’t think it’s completely sunk in yet

(please excuse my face and my hair, i was NOT prepared for meeting the most beautiful person to ever walk this earth today so I look like a complete mess, but that’s okay because I have finally met Gregor and I couldn’t be happier)

there’s something in you worth loving.

you heard me.

it can be as rudimentary as the charming way you smile, or how pleasant your laugh sounds. there is something. I know how difficult it is to conceptualize; I know it’s even harder to think that these positive things, even the small ones, make up for the void – make up for all the perceived negative way we see ourselves.

to be honest there’s a lot more about us to love than what we gives ourselves credit for. it never feels like enough; we need to either be more than ourselves or nothing at all. most of the time it feels like nothing at all. but it’s not like that.

if you didn’t know it today, you are worth loving. people do love you. there are people out there that will come to love you. and there’s always time to cultivate things in ourselves that people can come to love. we’re amazingly dynamic like this.

but don’t give up.

you are worth loving.

jimmy + meyer [with bonus ticked-off!charlie in the background] for @anunexpectedfandom. happy birthday! ♥

DC: You know what would be awesome in Batman Beyond?

Me: Damian Wayne having become a cool retired crimefighter as an adult and Terry being like “?????how???”

Me: Damian trolling the heck out of everyone by pretending he has no clue what’s going on? Taking that Wayne Obfuscating Stupidity to new and untold heights of sheer unbelievable trolling?

Me: Just Damian sitting there, sipping his tea, going “oh that’s my clone, don’t worry about him, I have dozens” like that’s perfectly normal, while Terry tries not to twitch and Bruce is just internally screaming?

Me: Damian letting his clones troll everyone, but dropping the act in a hot minute the second Bruce is Too Extra™???

DC: actually we were thinking more along the lines of making him the new demon’s head and evil and crazy after another fall out with his father but you know


college cohabitation AU ideas

Adolin always eats the last of the ice cream but he always buys more right after so nobody gets too angry (except for Kaladin)

Shallan, Renarin, and Kaladin are the ones perpetually up the latest bc homework, when they pass out around the kitchen table they mysteriously wake up with blankets over them and the coffee machine running (nobody ever guesses who’s the culprit but it’s actually Rlain? what a sweetie)

Lopen refuses to say what his major is. Every time he’s asked he gives a different answer

Sigzil is doing research with like??? 3 different professors??? Or maybe it’s only one professor????? Even he doesn’t seem completely sure

”why didn’t you go to culinary school, Rock, oh my god”

Amaram got a baller rating on rate my professor and seemed good so Kaladin chose him as his advisor when he switched majors but turns out Amaram is terrible oh my god why does nobody see this

Shallan’s artwork is all over the house walls because she gifts people her stuff for birthdays or whatever and everyone frames them and hangs them up (she’s embarrassed but pleased)

Renarin was worried everyone would freak out about the epilepsy thing (feat. service dog Glys) but instead it turned into a game of “everyone recite your disabilities and compare medications/mobility devices/etc.“ (not coercively but in the “we’re all in this club” way that happens)

they found out Moash was in college republicans like a month before he transferred out and Kaladin almost hit him with the cake batter spatula

housewide battle plan to fight Prof. Sadeas when he keeps using Rlain’s deadname, only stopped by Shallan pointing out it’d be more effective go to to the administration (Adolin may punch Sadeas in the face when they see each other at the bar though it was unclear officer)

Teft is back in school after taking a long break where he had a real job, he doesn’t want to talk about what it was or why he originally dropped out in the first place. Doesn’t matter bc he’s The Shit (though there is a secret betting pool and “leader of a biker gang” is a favorite)

Business/Communications double major Rysn, also known youtube makeup tutorial star (check out her eyebrow sculpting vid omg)

Everyone borrows Axies’ class notes bc his are beautiful, color-coded, binder-organized notes that would make an instagrammer cry. BUT he constantly has memos and shit scribbled across his skin in handwriting only he can read, the duality of man™

It’s Eshonai’s sixth year in undergrad because she seems to be trying to minor in Everything alongside her geo major, save her

Szeth had to drop out for mental health reasons but everyone in the house still loves him and tries to keep in touch with him. They sent care packages to him all through those first hard months when he was in rehab

I can’t believe we let Father’s Day go past without any angst about a tiny Svlad Cjelli growing up in a CIA facility, attaching himself to the only authority figure to show him a shred of kindness only to be met with broken promises and a project name he never liked.

Say Yes to Distress (Rafael Barba x Reader)

@xemopeachx I finally got it up!
SHOUT OUT TO @mrsrafaelbarba FOR PROOFREADING THIS!! *insert gospel hands*

“C’mon, c’mon, c’mon! We’re gonna be late if you don’t speed up!”

How interesting it was for you to make such a statement, given that Rafael could only go as fast as your tugging from ahead allowed him. At least, it would have been interesting, had you not roused the man from his sleep in such an abrupt manner. Rafael Barba was a very busy man and one who had learned long ago to appreciate what downtime he had to the best of his ability. So if there ever was an opportunity to sleep in, he would sleep like a rock after capping a night out on the town with some hard liquor. And he was quite grateful to share such a trait with you. Curled up, your back to his chest, being the big spoon to your little spoon underneath the comforting shield of the duvet with the familiar sounds of the bustling city below your apartment playing in the background – that was how he liked his Saturday mornings.

Not being woken up to your cold hands smooshing his cheek after he failed to respond to your whispers or even shaking him. And certainly not getting marched out of bed, into the shower for only five minutes, a quick breakfast of Eggo waffles (weekends were usually the only time he could even get breakfast!), and out the door to the rowdy streets of New York. He much preferred this sound to be on the other side of the window, rather than up in his ears. However, the honking of car horns and rattle of construction and shouting of commuters was almost drowned out, if not for you taking up the most of his attention with your incessant command: “C’mon, c’mon, c’mon.” You’d been saying it since he’d lumbered out of bed. And he’d been asking why since the Eggo waffles.
