TOP 20 EPISODES OF PARKS AND RECREATION (as voted by my followers) #11: Halloween Surprise

“Wait. Wait. Just… I need to remember this. Gimme a second… No, no, no, no, no, no hold on. Just - I need another second please. I need to remember every little thing about how perfect my life is right now at this exact moment.”

one of my favorite things about the trans!danny hc is that, assuming we’re going by canon here, jack is suPER supportive

like almost every episode we hear jack referring to danny as “danny boy”

like,, think about this for a second

danny coming out to his parents, fidgeting nervously with the hem of his too-big t-shirt

maddie being quiet at first, taking it in, thinking about how she would have to take her son shopping for new clothes immediately.. and a binder. he would need a proper binder.

she gets so lost in calculating all the things she would have to do to help her son feel comfortable she doesnt realize how quiet shes being - but danny does

he starts panicing. his fears had come true - they didnt accept him. of course they wouldnt.. he begins backing up when all of sudden jack’s face turns into a huge grin.

he claps a hand on his sons shoulder, beaming. “oh danny boy!” he proclaims, “why didnt you tell us sooner???”

danny blanches. he hadnt expected his dad to be so accepting. this snaps maddy out of her trance, and she starts talking at lightning speed, how they would have to buy him some new, appropriate, clothes and the seriousness of proper binding.

danny cant believe it.. they? they’re ok with this? he starts to cry - from relieve and from happiness and also from a bit of guilt he didnt tell them sooner - that would have made things a lot easier

from then on jack and maddy try their best to be as supportive as they can be. maddy always cooing about her precious baby boy and jack going on and on about how they need to have more father-son bonding time. making sure hes always comfortable and correcting anyone who ever dares misgender their baby boy. danny couldnt have been happier.

even so, he stills gets dsyphoria sometimes and it really brings him down - and so jack does the only thing he could think

he starts calling him danny boy.

maybe a little reminder is all he needs… besides, he always wanted a son anyways


“The emotional resonance and poignant growth for Emma and Hook proved once again to be what I enjoyed most about the episode. I had hope to see tender forms of intimacy emerge for the couple, but little did I dream to see so much in one episode, let alone the second one of the season. Colin O’Donoghue astoundingly expressed the sheer fright of Killian Jones (not Captain Hook) losing the woman he loves more than anything with every aching look in his eyes and frantic attempt to break through the ice with his hook. With the very genuine prospect of losing her, he does not call her his usual endearments of “Swan” or “Love”, but rather simply Emma- His Emma whose life is in real peril. It was poignantly beautiful when they hugged each other with such fervor, Emma nearly in tears and cradling his head, Hook smiling, finally able to breathe, and holding onto to her for dear life- a life so precious to him that was nearly lost forever. This moment alone showed a new sense of intimacy as a hug is so much different than a kiss. Their embrace solidified how deeply they feel for each other without any words necessary. It was also truly lovely to see the other forms of gentle affection between them from him wrapping his arm around her trying to warm her up, to her leaning into his shoulder and him softly nuzzling the top of her head, to him holding her hand and Emma interlacing her fingers with his. It is unknown when either shared such gentleness with anyone and the fact that Emma initiates it beautifully reveals how safe, comforted, and happy she is to have him by her side, while his look of adoration and constancy next to her shows just how true his love is. Emma and Killian are becoming each other’s everything and it is truly touching to watch” |x|

madthoughts asked:

I read Hickman's QA on millarworld today and it made me think-- so many of your contemporaries are moving to creator-owned books only, leaving Marvel behind. What makes you stay? Not complaining!

 quick answer: i love it. i love making these comics. if i didn’t, i would move on.

 and I also love making creator owned comics every week. i am taking a break from writing an episode of The second season of the powers television show to answer this question. and we are just about to put an issue of powers to the printer.  with the TV show in production no one other than Robert Kirkman and Mark Miller is enjoying the fruits of their long labors in creator owned comics more than Michael and myself.

BUT…  why don’t I leave and just do that? I don’t want to. and…

i feel tremendous loyalty to joe because marvel plucked me out of literal obscurity and gave me daredevil and spider-man based solely on the fact that they loved my creator owned work.  

lots of people talk about the companies lack of creator loyalty, but it goes both ways.  loyalty is a precious commodity in this life.

sure, some days i am frustrated with my bosses.  who in this life isn’t?

but all of my problems are high-class problems and i am quick to remember this…

dan buckley created a creator owned imprint so i had somewhere safe to sell my comics and ten years ago i REALLY needed it. 

years ago, when my wife was very sick marvel sent groceries to my house with a note that said: ‘if we need to we will put your books on hiatus,  we will not replace you or do fill ins. you worry about your family.’ my wife rebounded quickly but i will NEVER forget that gesture. 

and over all these years they have backed my passion and creativity with tremendous faith and collaberation right up to the launch of Ironman which we are all very excited about.

 and as my children get older it is truly exciting to watch their mouths drop open in shock when they find out what I do for living. ‘ you write guardians of the galaxy?? wow!!’ :-)

so everyone follows their own path. mine has always been straddling both worlds. and I’m having a lot of fun and creative freedom in both so why wouldn’t I do both as long as I’m allowed to.

Two things. First: this tweet by Bryan. Because all I can think of is how often DLC have made a point of telling us that Hannibal doesn’t have to shit on the floor, because he still has the hole. Which, I’m gonna be honest, I’m hoping is just a coincidence because escaping through the toilet hole is gross. Then again, this is Hannibal, so anything is possible.

Second: I love that Bedelia’s question, “Do you ache for him?” was actually bookended already. Last week we had “I’m not fortune’s fool. I’m yours.” And then again with Will & Bedelia’s second conversation in which Bedelia repeated it: “You’re his.”. Every time I think about this episode, it fucks me up a little bit more.


It’s so interesting to see how the rest of Wander was scared of having baby Wander become apart of him again. I think it might have something to do with his backstory (a lot of fans think that so far)!! But, that baby Wander is what makes him who he is, even though it may hurt to have that part of himself…

I CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT THAT EPISODE. It hit me right in the heart.

“That was the most important part…”

Plus the Wander saying “I love you” to Sylvia every 5 seconds was adorable, especially for Sylander shippers. XD

It’s 4:04 AM and I should not be awake but after that episode of Girl Meets World, I should be happy as a Lucaya shipper, right? But I’m not, not because I think, they don’t get enough scenes or whatever, that episode was so great and well written, I absolutely loved every second of it but I don’t want to get high hopes for Lucaya if it just won’t happen at all like I read so many tweets on Twitter a few minutes ago and they were all about the evidence hat Lucaya will never happen and I don’t even know what this post is about, it’s just that i’m so fucking scared that this ship that I love more than I could possibly imagine really needs to sail, I don’t want another of my OTPs to fucking not happen or just fucking die like they always do, don’t let me start and I don’t know what I am even talking about and it’s 4:08 AM and I love Lucaya and I need them to be canon, I need them to be a thing I AM SIXTEEN I SHOULD WORRY ABOUT OTHER STUFF BUT I AM SO AFRAID THAT LUCAYA WILL NEVER REALLY HAPPEN UGH I NEED HELP

I can’t tell you how much I loved every second of the Hannibal finale.

Reba and Francis scene at the beginning, my heart skipped a beat at multiple times. The scene Reba/Will that I was hoping for was in the episode too, I couldn’t be happier.

Ding Dong, the Dragon is dead.

Beautiful scene, Hannibal looks stunning and the dialogue that follows was so intense and you can feel how desperate Hannibal is to get his Will back, my heart broke into thousands of pieces when Hannibal said “Will… Was it good to see me ?” Or “Think about me, Will”.

Alana and her family are safe, and I am happy for them. They diserve a good life after all Margot and her have been through.

Jack is a fool. Sorry not sorry.

And then we had the scene with Will, Hannibal and Francis.

The fight scene was so intense, Hannibal and Will fighting side by side, almost like animals, protecting each other from this other beast. And they won.

They won the battle. They both enjoyed killing the dragon, they were one in this moment, it was beautiful to watch something like this. I think it was my favourite scene of all three seasons, after that very last scene before the credits.

That very last scene before the credits…

My mum and my sister were besides me, I think they thought I was going to have a heart attack. I felt like I wasn’t in the room anymore, I wanted to cry but couldn’t, I was just screaming and then went silent for a whole minute, I couldn’t even explain to them what happened because I was in shock ! It was unreal to me. I was so afraid that it was just a dream, I still am.

Will sees Hannibal, he sees him, the man beneath the devil, the man who fell in love with him. “At last” you can read in Hannibal’s eyes. Will leans on Hannibal, and the look on Hannibal’s face, the feeling of relief. He finally has Will entirely. And then, Will and Hannibal fall from the cliff. Will made them to.

This is how I see it :

Bedelia said earlier in the episode : “Can’t live with him, can’t live without him”, and I think Will agrees with that. He decides that he has to kill the old Will for good, so he can be with Hannibal, and he takes Hannibal with him in his fall, probably because he knows Hannibal can’t live without him either, or he doesn’t want Hannibal to live without him…maybe.

It can also be a figurative fall. They didn’t really fall off the cliff, it was only to show us that a part of both of them died together. 

After credits scene.

The scene with Bedelia, to me, tells us that Hannibal and Will have survived the fall. There are three plates and three chairs on the table including Bedelia’s. So, in my opinion, season 4 would be Hannibal and Will becoming the Murder Husbands they were always meant to be.

Tv shows

Seriously guys, sometimes I think I should stop watching those shows. Every time I discover another show that I really like, I get so messed up and practically drown myself in all the love I share for it, I embrace every second of every episode living through the characters hopes and dreams, even facing their deepest fears. One could say I begin to take part in their world as if I had been living in it myself all the time. And when this very show comes to an end, it’s like this small world I’ve inhabited and the people in it vanish into thin air, kind of like they are dying. And I’m dying right beside them. It’s a horrible feeling and it makes me wonder if I’m the only one being this obsessed with something unreal und unreachable.

frozensearlait asked:

43, Anna and Alarik.

“You did WHAT?!”

“I…told her I loved her.”

“Right in the middle of a Law and Order marathon?”


“Did she…say anything?”

“No, but she blinked.”

“She does that all the time. I do that. So do you!”

“She blinked a lot.”

“How much is a lot?”

“Every two to three or three point five seconds.”

“Was it a sweeps week episode or something?”

“I don’t think so…”

*heavy sigh* “Okay. I’m going to find Kristoff and a battering ram. She’s probably bolted the front door again.”

“What’s Kristoff got to do with this?”

“He’s going to stand in the doorway and intercept her if she tries running away again.”

“Should I come? I could…watch the windows out back.”

“You have done enough for today, mister. Go play with your test tubes.”

Alarik considers himself a little bit blessed that she smiled at him when she said that.

anonymous asked:

All this MFMM talk is getting me curious... So, what are the five top reasons you'd recommend it? Beautiful fanart, by the way!

HMM WOW OKAY (and thank you so much!)

  1. The 20s aesthetic is to die for and Phryne’s fashion is the crown jewel of the 20s vibe, not to be outdone by the music.
  2. The slowest of slow burn OTPs
  3. It’s a very feminist show, always taking time to draw attention to women’s rights issues of the 20s, what it means to be a ‘modern woman’, etc. But what I really love about this is how they execute it. First, it’s not usually made into a huge thing, and most often, the ways in which they bring it up actually helps move the plot along. Second, they explore how different women approach their feminism differently. The two main heroines hold similarly feminist beliefs, but they live completely differently, with one who’s not afraid to bare all (literally) and seduce men almost every episode, while the other is a virtuous Catholic in an exclusive relationship with a man. Finally, and perhaps most interestingly, one of the most misogynistic characters of the show (of the main cast) is also one of the most lovable. So while you get angry with him when he’s being an idiot, most of the time he’s really just a sweetheart, and he’s always learning and bumbling past his oversights. So not only is it strongly feminist, it’s also a very realistic and kind portrayal of feminism, which I’m sure will make tumblr mad, but I find very appealing.
  4. The mysteries provide a slightly interactive element, as all mysteries do, for you to deduct ‘who dunnit’ on your own. It’s a bit more Clue than your typical Law and Order show, and while the viewer usually stays a step or two ahead of Phryne in terms of observation, in terms of explanation the show keeps you on your toes.
  5. The character arcs. Honestly, when I got into this show it was purely for the mysteries and the 20s aesthetic. But then suddenly I was in the second season and I really cared about these characters. I don’t know how or when exactly, but the writers have made very compelling but very subtle character arcs that work slowly but surely to establish all of the characters in a special place in an emerging ‘family’ of a cast that become very near and dear to their viewers. I realize that all shows do this in some form or fashion, but I’ve been surprised by the authenticity of this show. Looking back, while season 1 had a few ‘staged’ moments to get the ball rolling, and there are many moments of fan service, most of the time it’s still felt very genuine. It’s incredibly endearing and I love these characters and how they interact with one another. I hope a 4th season is in the works.


guys, i’m getting seriously sad. this is probably the second to last episode of hannibal *ever*. i still remember how delighted i was by the start of this show, and how i marathoned season one in three days, and how surprised i was to love it so much since that was before i really got into the horror genre … fuck fuck fuck :(

snowmarus asked:

takasugi shinsuke for character meme!

  • What I like about them: sugi is like… a meme fave, he’s the set minumum for what it makes into my fave list instantly. he’s voiced by koyasu, he’s angsty and somewhat hilarious. i liked him from second one(episode 13 then?), from second one i was like “i hope the dude appears often” and from second one i was bound for disappointment. i love takasugi a lot, i really do.
  • What I dislike about them: nasty colour scheme, hair looks as though he just kinda smears yakult over it every morning sometimes
  • Favourite moment: benizakura but it’s not that i have a wide choice. “hey, zura, look, gintoki is fighting”.
  • Least favourite moment: the whole thing from the joui flashbacks in chapter 517-518(ish??). i mean shut up takasugi you’re like 4. 4.5 maybe. too angry for such a smol purple kid
  • A situation with this character that I want to see explored more: oh god. getting any exploration of takasugi’s character in-canon would be a bliss. he’s like what? entering the scene all like “i only destroy”, has his setting, is given backstory Actually. his motives are understandable, his character is lovable, but he’s still so under-explored. give me at least one tiny panel with takasugi taking a shit or something *shakes fist @ the sky*
  • An interesting AU for this character: here. look. i talked about it. modern day au. takasugi is an angsty emo college student, probably studying sociology or philosophy or history, who knows. he’s a passionate eva fan. he jerks off to ayanami rei. he spends tons of money on eva merchandize. he spends a lot of time on thematic forums with other losers of his kind. one time he just kinda lurks on a different forum and sees someone trash-talking eva, so he engages in a Very heated discussion. the opponent has actually very valid points so he gets angrier and angrier, the discussion gets more personal, he ends up crying at some point
  • A crossover: nay
  • OTP (or OT3+ etc…. just… favourite ship): zura
  • Other ships?: no…………. except this one college au in which shouyo is a professor because im a sucker for that
  • BROTP: i hate this word but. kamui and bansai. someday matako will realise she’s too good for him but will continue to care for him as for an awkward, anti-social, loser younger brother, and on that day he will open up to her too
  • NOTP: hmmmm…. it’s not exactly a notp but i still can’t perceive taka gin as something that is actually happening in a sense. like a couple of days ago i was super extra mega sleep-deprived(havent slept for about 35+ hours) and i see a taka gin fanart and i kinda… kinda accept it as something remotely real? that was the only time. i really don’t know how to explain. each time the takagins interact even in canon it feels so unreal to me, as though someone is forcefully closing my eyes and i just can’t. see. it. idk. i really have no idea how to explain this feeling.
  • An assortment of headcanons!: as i said! he jerks off to rei, rei would definetly, 100% be his fave because he’s a fuckboy. he often touches his crushed eye when nobody’s looking. he cries when he gets drunk. he has a small dick. he is secretely an otsuu fan, has all her cds(perks of being buddies with her producer), is completely aware of matako thirsting for him but is in fact way too awkward to try to communicate with her in any way(has no idea how to handle her feelings). is a cat person. plays “your mother is an xxx” on his shamisen from time to time. 

anonymous asked:

"Stalia is a horrible couple. I don't understand how knowing a girl for 2 days leads to a connection" I agree with you that Stalia is a horrible couple. But look at Scallison and Scira. New girl shows up, Scott has an immediate connection to the girl within the first few seconds and next episode they're a couple. It's not only Stalia that has that "instant connection" without having known each other before.

Scallison was purposeful and I liked that quite a bit.  They ~tried with a slow build with Scira but it ended up just being stupid.  Stalia was CRAZY because at least with Scott’s brevity ships, they used every second of the short time they had falling in love with each other.  Malia’s first inclination was to punch him in the face.  Then suddenly she’s naked in a shower with him all #overit. Then they’re boning on a couch.  Like, whet?
