being a fan of phil is so weird like…why is he so entertaining? he’s not a comedian, he’s not an actor or a musician, he’s just….like….a great conversationalist? your friend? like a really, really good friend. but also somebody you don’t know.
Ah, Stan Pines. Ladies man, town darlin’, getting all the girls and his fair share of trouble. And boy, do we get an earful on how much he loves girls. Heck, it’s almost like he’s trying to shove the idea that he likes girls into everyone’s face. Just to make sure, without a doubt, that yes, we know Stan, you are into women! But man, he also loves to let us know how much he hates marriage, to the point of it being an ongoing joke. He tells us how upset he is that the girl he liked chose someone else over him. He says multiple times under his breath “Ugh, women”, as if he’s just disgusted with the lot of them. But but, please don’t forget everyone! He likes girls! He wants to get all the babes, he has drawings and fantasies and ridiculous paintings all depicting him ending up with women, but man does he love to talk about how much he also hates them.
So, which is it, Stan Pines?
Well, I’ve long suspected that Stan does like women, but he also has another preference that he feels he has to keep hidden from the public all the time; guys. Why? Because his father was a strict, unimpressed man and he grew up in New Jersey during the 60s when gays visibility was gaining traction in the state. And I mean, with such social and familial pressures, what’s a guy to do? Probably just sit around and never let their strict, unimpressed, stubborn, ‘tough as a cinderblock’, I-could-kick-you-out-over-the-smallest-thing father know that hmmm, maybe one of their sons is also bisexual. And instead feel forced to constantly say “I like girls” more often than not just to reaffirm that statement is true. He’s forcing how much he likes women, and even though I’m sure he does like girls (he had a major crush on Carla, he draws himself with the ladies, etc), it’s a pretty scary world when your pops might kick you out over something as mundane as sexual preference. Unluckily for Stan, though, he got kicked out anyway.
brexit is scary. and not just because britain will be leaving the eu but because it once again shows the amount of support right wing parties all across
europe have gained in the past few years. how successful they are in
spreading racism, fear and lies fucking terrifies me. and all that just because they think they are somehow superior to others. the way europe (and the world) is headed right now is alarming.
I seem to have so many days off every single month, no clue why that keeps happening. In August it was summer holidays, four glorious weeks of doing nothing but reading fics in the sun (except there was no sun but well). So here’s my Sterek Fic Rec List #8!
“You know this still really weird, right?” Stiles asks around the toothpaste in his mouth. “What’s weird?” Derek asks. Stiles spits and rinses his mouth out. “The cuddling. The cuddling is weird. This-” Stiles says, holding up his toothbrush to the mirror. “-is weird. The fact that I have spare clothes here is weird.”
Derek’s been letting his job dictate his life ever since he was promoted from freelance photographer to official travel photographer. In his five years of travel, he’s built relationships in countries all across the globe, yet he still returns home after each job as lonely as ever. When he decides to try out the pen pal site Laura recommends to him, he doesn’t know what to expect. Derek isn’t prepared for Stiles, a small town guy with big dreams of seeing the world. And he certainly isn’t prepared to fall in love with him. He has to remind himself that this is just a pen pal thing and not to get carried away. It’s not like Stiles could ever like him back.
This is the story about how Stiles Stilinski becomes a man. A much greater challenge altogether, for to achieve it – he must win the heart of his one, true love.
Yes, I am aware that this space is reserved for the same people every single month. Because they write the best mini fics. Leave me alone. And check out obroech, coffeeinallcaps and felicitysmock because the Friends meme thing is my favorite thing ever. Also very much recommended is Brii’s AU fic rec blog which is all kinds of awesome - FUCKYEAHSTEREKAUS!
