in all absolute honesty I do… feel the same, like they just missed the mark of what the essence of Gladstone’s look is- taking a new angle and using a new style is awesome, no problems with that at all! but especially that second anon there you kinda hit the nail on the head with the key features business, but it is very early days and we haven’t seen him in motion yet! perhaps the design will work better/we’ll get more used to it during the actual show? that said I have been itching to have a try at tweaking it… maybe I’ll try later
“What movie should we watch tonight?” peter asked as you entered his room on a very cold, sunday night in mid-december. The rush of the cold air hit your bare shoulders as you scanned his DVD section. You lips curved into a smile when your eyes hit “nightmare before christmas”, one of your favorite movies of all time. “This one,” you speak, grabbing the DVD, beaming with excitement. If peter were completely honest, it was his least favorite movie, but considering how whipped the boy was, he just gave you a sweet smile before he got up to put the film on.
You both get comfortable on his bed, leaning against the wall, hands laced together loosely. Days like these were by far the best; just being with peter, watching movies all night. The only flaw about this night in particular was that you were freezing cold. It didn’t help that you made the really stupid decision to not wear something that could keep you warm. So there you were: freezing cold, goosebumps covering every inch of your arms, way too timid to speak up so that your boyfriend could get you a blanket. Peter liked to keep his room at a cold temperature most of the time which bothered you sometimes, especially now because it’s fucking December and its cold as shit.
Peter may have been clueless sometimes, but he knew you very well - he knew you were acting a little weird and had to know why.
“Something wrong, pretty girl?” he asked softly. You tried not to beam to much at pretty girl, and decided to shrug it off because you didn’t want to be a bother.
“I’m fine.” you respond quietly, literally shaking from being so damn cold. Seriously, peter, it’s fucking december why is it 60 degrees in your room.
Peter noticed instantly, “you cold?” he questioned, rubbing your bare shoulder, sending more shivers down your spine.
You nod slowly, “Y-yeah, it’s like an iceberg in here Peter,” Peter laughed a little, “Yeah, i know i keep my room cold and i’m sorry, love.” he said sincerely. Yeah, no shit babe?
“I didn’t want to be rude or anything, im sorry,” you muttered, cheeks going a light shade of pink.
“Do you,” peter smiled a sweet smile and did an awkward hand gesture, “want one of my sweaters or something???” he asked. This made your heart grow ten times bigger. You were in the early stages of dating, about two to three weeks give or take, so this was a very big milestone. You shyly nod, tucking a piece of hair behind your ear.
Peter gets up from his spot and goes to his closet, opening it, grabbing his blue midtown high sweater. You LOVED this sweater on him more than anything, this made you feel so giddy inside and very special. Peter wanted you to be nothing more to be comfortable and happy, seeing you in his sweater would just make his heart burst.
“Is this okay for you?” He asked walking towards you, holding out the sweater. You smiled sweetly at the boy, “Yeah, i, um, love that sweater actually.” what the hell, you sound so creepy what are you doing?
Peter literally melted inside due to that comment, even though you thought it sounded so weird, “Here,don’t want you being cold any more.” he handed you the sweater and you silently thanked him.
You both just stood there for a second, none of you speaking. Even though you two were a couple, you still felt like it would be awkward to change in front of him. It didn’t even sound like such a big deal, but for some reason you just felt very self-conscious.
“Anyways,” you cleared your throat, “I can go change in the bathroom..”
To say that Peter was an absolute gentlemen was a huge understatement. He knew that you needed your privacy, and totally respected that. “No, no, it’s okay - change in here. Just let me know when i can come back in.” he assured you in a gentle tone, earning a small nod from you. He walks out of his room, shutting the door behind him. You remove your t-shirt, folding it and putting it next to the backpack you brought with you, and slipped on his hoodie. The scent of peter’s usual cologne, that he started using when you two first met, hit your nose causing you to smile and feel warm inside. The sweatshirt was pretty big on you, due to Peter being taller than you, but you felt very secure and a lot warmer in it. Taking a small glance at the mirror you smile, and put your hair up in a messy bun then roll up the sleeves a little since they originally went past your hands.
Satisfied with your appearance, you give Peter an okay for him to walk in. His heart was instantly filled with happiness the second he walked in and laid his eyes on you, as you awkwardly stood in front of him. You, his beautiful and sweet girlfriend, were wearing his sweater. He felt nothing more but warm and fuzzy inside, he thought you looked absolutely adorable. Wow, i love my girlfriend very much. he thought.
“What?” You asked, slightly laughing, fiddling with your hands.
Peter rubbed the back of his neck and shook his head, walking over to you, “You look absolutely adorable, no - fucking beautiful.” You felt your cheeks and the tip of your ears get insanely hot at the two words, quickly growing very shy. Peter wasn’t always the shy one here. You had many moments where he’d compliment you or do something sweet that would make you completely and utterly bashful. The brown eyed boy noticed your very pink face and was now grinning like crazy.
“Aww, my pretty girl.” He beamed proudly, his soft hands caressing your flushed face. You crinkle your nose and shy away, burying your face in his chest in embarrassment.
“Stoppp, you’re making me blush.” You whined in a muffled voice. Peter chuckled softly, only bringing you closer, giving you a sweet kiss on your forehead - something you lived for. Deep down, you didn’t mind at all that he made you feel this way. He was the only person who could always have this effect on you.
He lifted your chin up with his index finger, making eye contact with you, of course sending more butterflies in your stomach.
“Hey, you’re the one who is effortlessly cute all the time. Gotta compliment my girl.” Peter spoke. “And my god, please wear my clothes more often.” he said nearly breathless, removing some hair out of your face.
“Trust me, my love, this will probably never step foot in your closet again.”

ive struggled to get through A Lot of major plot points in the past several seasons of this shitshow but to be perfectly honest watching jon SECRET TARGARYEN snow’s entire character be assassinated at point-blank range by this clusterfuck with fake jesus/negligent mother of dragons/queen of the least compelling faux feminist narrative since cersei was hilariously slut shamed by the brother she WASN’T fucking,,,,like idk if i can do it anymore lmao

I mean. To be honest, I loved her since she showed in The Sandman for the first time, solely for her super cool design,and then in the Lucifer comic, she’s so cool, and then the tv adaptation showed up and I thought “hmmm she seems to be a totally different character oh well, well se how it’ll turn out” but now I’m “my queen please step on me”.
Story time: Dating everyone in P5 turned Joker into a sociopath
The first time I ended up dating more than one girl in a Persona game,
it was an honest accident. I’d already imprinted on Chie in Persona 4, and had
no idea comforting Yukiko during her social link would me into a two-timing
douche. A quick save-state reload rectified this mistake, but it taught me an
important lesson: in Persona games, monogamy is not the limit of your teenage
As Persona 5 rolled around, I grew fond of Makoto on my first
playthrough. With her on my side I experienced the Phantom Thief thrill ride,
maxing my social links while gently turning other girls down. It wasn’t until
the NewGame+ that I wondered: wouldn’t it be interesting to try the
multi-dating thing? That way I could fast-forward all romance scenarios and not
watch them on Youtube later like a loser, duh. If this game was intentionally giving
me the opportunity to be Tokyo’s biggest Don Juan, then by Mona, I’d do it!
Little did I know, though, that as I embarked on a quest to bag all the
single ladies* the whole atmosphere of the game changed. What had been a more
or less generic adventure about truth and justice took on some… rather disturbing undertones, ones that
went beyond the actual dating scenarios. In fact, the game turned out to be
such an interesting social experiment that I wanted to write about it, so here
I am. So, this is a recap of how dating multiple people in Persona 5 turned
my Joker into a sociopath.
* except for Makoto, because a) I already romanced her before and b)….
it didn’t feel right, her being my first and all. SO SUE ME I’M A LOSER AFTER
reasons why greek was the best show on abc family ever ever ever
strong female friendships. i mean, this makes the show a winner already. casey and ashleigh, casey and rebecca… strong female friendships are so important to me man. their friendships were never ruined over stupid things, or over guys. sO GOOD
strong friendships in general. greek is a show that puts friendship over relationships and promoting positive platonic friendship is something i can’t ever get enough of because good friendships are incredible things to have and you don’t see that enough in media.
calvin, and heath’s sexuality never defined them - they were just normal college guys, looking for relationships too. heath and calvin were kissing at frat parties without a care in the world and i love that. i love that they had LGBT characters who were never defined by their sexuality. they were people above all else - treated the same as all the straight characters.
they promoted positive sexual health and positive sex in general - katherine wanted advice on what kind of birth control to be on, rusty realised that he couldn’t be the one to take katherine’s virginity just because she wanted to loose it before law school (i don’t think sex and love come hand in hand don’t get me wrong but i do buy into the idea that your first time should probably be with someone you trust and katherine and rusty barely knew each other) sex was never a shameful thing for girls to be having (OK there was some issues and name-calling but for the most part girls having sex was GOOD and not a problem and girls can be sexual beings too yay)
rebecca realising that she deserved better than the way evan was treating her and ending the relationship despite how much she cared for him because she knew it was important to be in a relationship where both parties love equally
couples realising they have issues and need to work them out before they can actually be together (cough evan and rebecca cough)
calling out shitty behaviour even though its being done by your brothers (the whole calvin vs tripp thing)
it was funny and witty and made me laugh way too much
actual decent storylines
college is fuckin scary man and leaving it will probably be scarier and they didn’t shy away from that (cappie’s storyline basically)
they didn’t magically get jobs and happy after they graduated (final season was in 2011 in the middle of a severe recession and they didn’t shy away from that fact either)
can we talk about casey and cappies love story for a second - “its a fairytale” “no other girl in the world compares to you” i mean come on they were such an incredible relationship and they felt almost real because they had issues and problems they couldn’t work through for a really long time
they (eventually) dealt with a love triangle far better than any other show i’ve watched to be honest (evan/casey/cappie)
so ok the show had its problems and it wasn’t perfect but it was a really damn good show and it has so many positive things and positive atributes and it was definitely the best show on ABC family they will never top it ever again bye
Angry Thoughts about Know It All (non-angry ones below, after)
NO continuity from previous episodes re: this serial rapist – they could have easily done it like with the push-in rapist last season, with allusions to it in earlier episodes to set it up. except that would require episodes to be aired in order and apparently we can’t have that.
as with heartfelt passages, this “barba-centric” episode only gave us about five minutes with him. and NO time with him away from liv except that two-second phone call. GIVE RAÚL ESPARZA MORE MATERIAL he’s such a good actor and needs Time To Shine
speaking of which, i would have killed for a scene with him and the little girl he’s helping out. that would have been so bittersweet, and so interesting to see that side of him.
so fucking mad they did ice t so wrong by cutting the scene where fin announces he made sergeant. fuck that.
was sad at the missed opportunity to mention kim / give rollins some kind of emotional reaction while dealing with an “untrustworthy” younger sister who has addiction problems :(
no one cares NYPD was hacked??? at all?? i didn’t necessarily want them to spend time on that but they should have at least acknowledged that it was a big fucking deal
too much time on witness interviews and exposition. we get it. give us character moments, i beg you.
wtf was with that carisi shit. is he googling bras on his work computer? is his girlfriend? why are these things happening. why are they doing this compulsory heterosexuality shit. (he could still be bi but lmao they’ll never give us that in canon)
the outside scenes didn’t read as reshoots – the one in the snow was filmed in Feb; iirc kelli giddish tweeted about it – so julie martin’s excuse about it being postponed due to weather was probably BS
Not Angry thoughts about Know It All
that final scene was so good. it was so good. olivia calling him “rafael” (!!!!), the hand touch to the heart, the emotion, all of it. my barson heart is thriving on that.
the secret was sweet and i’m really relieved that it was, like, something to do with ethics but he still was doing the right thing. wish they hadn’t built it up so much beforehand so it could have been more of a twist / not feel like a bit of a letdown though. (or spent more time on it so it didn’t feel like a letdown lmao)
ROPE GUY!! i’m sad because this probably means he’ll never come back, but the moments with him and fin were sweet.
i know there were others but i can’t remember them right now
but i will say that if they start the next episode with a scene of barba talking to the DA, or immediately after with just him, i will forgive so much, i will be so happy (they’re not gonna do it)
oh and i do SO LOVE that barba was so honest and open, going to the DA immediately to disclose what happened and face the consequences :’) i mean i’d expect nothing less but still. smol brave barba. i love him.
Can u please do an imagine where Corey does a cheating prank on u with Franny and she’s also ur best friend. idk where to go from there so u can make it up
A/N: this turned out really short. I’m sorry, i just don’t know what else to add.
Kian and I were out surprising Jc for his birthday, hanging out, just having fun to be honest. We decided we should head home since we were getting a bit tired. We drove to the house, jamming out to Blink-182 along the way. We pulled into the driveway and got out of the car, walking towards the door as Jc pulled out his keys. He opened the door and I made my way to Corey and I’s room. I stopped in my tracks as I heard Corey’s voice from the inside of the room.
“She won’t find out, calm down, babe..” Babe? I stood at the door and kept listening.
I heard a giggle from the other side. “You’re right, you’re right…” Franny? I would’ve never expected that..
“Are you ready?” Corey’s voice said. Ready? That’s it…
I busted the door open to see Corey holding Franny. “You better explain what the fuck is going on right now, and right now just passed so you’re not talking fast enough!”
“Nothing is going on!” Corey said and he let go of Franny. Jackass…
“If you’re gonna cheat, at least be honest about it.” I looked to Franny. “And you. How could you?” Thats when i noticed the GoPro by our lamp.
“Jackass..” I said, laughing slightly. Franny and Corey started laughing as well.
“Im so sorry!” Fran said and came to hug me.
“It’s okay..” Corey came up to me and wrapped me in a hug, kissing my forehead.
