HOTEL : DACRE MONTGOMERY

PART 2

Sorry for any mistakes, I wanted to get this up asap!! Also,, lets pretend that she was on birth control lmAo

SORRY IF THIS IS SHIT


No one stopped you from leaving the club, which you were thankful for. A couple white lies of, “She’s not feeling well.” and “It’s been a long day.” got you out suspicion free.

Dacre’s hand stayed glued to your thigh the entire drive back to the hotel, and the closer you got to reaching it, the longer your kisses were drawn out.

The need for each other only multiplied when the tall building that would be home for a few days came into view. The feeling between your legs almost caused you to fall over as you stepped out of the taxi, Dacre handing the driver the fee.

As soon as you reached the grand foyer of the hotel, Dacre grabbed your hand in his and began to run to the elevators. You both wasted no time in getting started in the elevator. You hands in his hair, his on your ass, your lips against his.

You pulled apart when the elevator stopped, watching the doors open to be welcomed by no one. You looked over to Dacre and he grinned, grabbing your hand again before starting to rush down the long hallway and toward your room.

“You have the key?”

You grinned, quickly pulling your purse in front of you to open it. You pulled it out and passed it to Dacre just as you reached your shared room.

As soon as the door was open and then closed behind you both, you were on each other like back at the club; except now there was no need to be careful.

You both stumbled over to the bed, hands pulling at each others clothes, mouths not wanting to separate. Your hands unbuckled his belt, as Dacre’s unzipped your dress. As you pulled down his pants, he ripped off his shirt completely.

Your dress fell to the floor, and almost instantly Dacre’s lips covered yours again. His hands found their way to the back of your bra, and as his kisses dropped to your decolletage your bra fell to the floor as well.

His throaty groan as his eyes rested on your chest only spurred you on, giving you the confidence to step even closer to him, sliding a hand down the front of his boxer briefs that were beginning to prove difficult at holding his obvious erection at bay.

“F-Fuck.” He choked out, eyes closing as your fingers gently grazed down the length of his cock.

His head dropped to rest on your shoulder, and his hands gripped your hips. Your hand rose from the inside of his boxer briefs, and you smiled to yourself, happy that the way you can make Dacre feel, is exactly how he makes you feel.

“I can’t wait any longer, babe,” He mumbled into your ear. “I need you now.”

Dacre gently laid you onto the bed, kissing your swollen lips with his, before trailing his way down your neck and over your breasts. Your hands held his by your sides as he continued leaving hot kisses across your body, finally reaching the top of your panties.

You let out a quiet moan, bucking your hips involuntarily as his tongue pressed against the fabric. He purposefully did it because he loved to see how needy you can get, and he loved to hear you enjoy it.

“Dacre.” You breathed, lifting your head slightly to watch him.

His eyes met yours, once again filled with that same lust and need as in the club; only now it was much, much more heavy. His hands left yours, only to attach to your panties, before slowly pulling them down. You raised your hips so he could get them off, sliding them down your legs and over your feet, dropping them by the bed.

His eyes never strayed from yours as he came back up and left a chaste kiss to your core, making you writhe under his body.

Dacre hovered over you, his face coming back up to yours. “You’re so beautiful.” He whispered, hands rubbing down your sides. “I hope you know that.”

You attached your lips to his again, but this time instead of a rushed kiss, it was slow and careful. Your hands traveled from his hair to his back, trailing your nails over the warm skin. Dacre’s breath halted against your neck, for he loved the feeling of your hands and nails against his back.

Your movements caused the boy above you to grind his hips against yours, creating friction against your core, making you moan into his ear.

“I can’t wait any longer.”

Those words lit a fire in Dacre’s stomach, and so he stood back up, slid off his boxers, and hovered back over your body; he was needy for you, and he wanted nothing more than to be inside of you.

You pushed your head back into the mattress, the anticipation twisting your stomach and causing your heat to grow wet even more. The feeling of Dacre’s cock pushing against your thigh swirled your mind and its thoughts.

Your hand traveled to his cock, and you positioned it at your entrance. Dacre’s kisses hot against your neck as he slowly pushed into you, your hands instantly to his back.

Your breathing grew shallow for a moment while Dacre’s low groan filled your ear. His hands gripping your sides as his entire length filled you up.

“Baby, fuck,” He moaned, sliding back out. “I-”

You cut him off with your mouth against his, seizing all words as you bucked your hips upward and against his. You moaned against his mouth, relishing in the feeling of his cock filling you up.

His hips thrust, faster now, as your hands scratched down his back and his grabbed your sides. His moans were turning into throaty growls as his lips attacked your neck. His hand reached down between you both and began rubbing your clit, making you moan his name over and over into his ear.

He lived to hear your breathy moans and his broken name leave your lips. He adored to see your face as he pounded into you. And boy, did he enjoy when your hands traveled up and down his back, nails pressing in and lightly scratching.

His cock deep inside of you, his fingers on your clit, made your mind hazy with sex. The sound of his voice, so much deeper when laced with arousal. Moans and groans, you name breathed out into the rooms air.

Your stomach was beginning to twist, while you mind stirred. Your legs wrapped around Dacre, causing his cock to go deeper and both your moans to grow louder.

“Y/N, baby,” He panted, thrusting deeper and harder. “I’m so fucking close.”

You nodded your head, the familiar feeling rushing through your body signalling you were the same. You kissed his lips, hands wrapping around his arms that were holding his weight up.

As Dacre’s words got more whiny, and his thrusts became slowed, you knew that he was almost reaching his orgasm. Your hips thrusted upward to meet his, which made him hungry to make you cum.

“C'mon baby,” He breathed, hips slamming against yours as his needs were almost reached. “C'mon,”

His words made all feeling leave your body for a moment, before coming back down to where you could feel everything. His lips over yours and the crook of your neck, his hands beside either side of your head, his cock thrusting in and out of your throbbing core, and his fingers quickening their pace on your now swollen clit.

All of this feeling, all of your nerve endings, heightened your response to his words and hands, and soon your hips lifted up to meet Dacre’s, and when his moans quickened and his thrusts got harder, you knew he was about to cum.

“Yes, baby, yes, fuck,” He rushed, groaning. “N-Now, cum, c-”

His loud growl in your ear as his orgasm unraveled caused you to quickly follow. Your body shook with pleasure, lips meeting Dacre’s as he filled you up. Both of your highs were rode out together, and even afterward, when only loud breathing and the beating of hearts could be heard, you gently thrust your hips to ride that last second out, making Dacre hiss out in sensitive pleasure.

He pulled out of you just before his arms gave way, Dacre falling beside you in a panting mess. His hair was sticking in every direction, his eyes on you, while you took a moment to collect your thoughts. You turned to face the grinning boy, his eyes light with happiness. You let out a small chuckle, running a hand over your forehead.

Dacre reached a hand out to hold yours, a tried grin lifting his face. “I really fucking love you.”

Sunday Night Sippy Cups- Part 4

Pairing: Danisnotonfire & AmazingPhil (Phan)

Genre: Fluff, Little!Space, Daddy!Kink, slight omaroshi (NO SMUT)

Word Count: 4000

Summary: Dan had just about comfortably adjusted to his liking for falling into little space. And so, the pair thought they had experienced just about everything, but in the week to come, new situations seem to arise one after the other. Like what to do when friends visit, nightmares, accidents, tears; but nonetheless, nothing that can’t be fixed with a little bit of cuddling.  

Author Note: Although this is part of a series, I think this chapter works on it’s own if catching up is not your thing. Otherwise, here are parts, 1, 2, 3.

okay so when do we get to start speculating about Jon becoming the Mad King redux because of that Targaryen gene, or does it only apply to  Daenerys? i’m just saying…he’s displayed some questionably unhinged behaviors like bloodlust and violent outbursts and suicidal tendencies, and he DID fuck his aunt tbh.

i mean i’m sure being brought back to life after being killed by your own men has really got to fuck with your head. and once he finds out he’s not Ned Stark’s son and his entire life is a lie? woooo boy. you guys wanted dark!Jon, maybe next season will deliver after all!

can we take a moment to think about how awful kuron will feel when he finds out his entire life was a lie and that hes not the real shiro, and he doesnt have everyones affection like he thought he did like…fuuuuck

just think about how all of your friends and family never loved YOU they loved a different person who is the REAL you like god damn that shits fucked up

Omfg I thought this was going to be an angst request, but you saved it at the end lmao. Yeah I’m okay with angst, but leAVE THE DOG OUT OF IT JFC. Anyway, this was cute and I liked writing it! Hope you like :3 Thank you for requesting!


[Seung-Gil Lee]

  • It’s another day of practice at his home rink, and Seung-Gil is ready to go home and spend time with you

  • By the looks of things, you’ve been him to a text about two hours ago, and his heart leaps into his throat at what he reads
  • You tell him that his dog isn’t feeling well, and you’ll be bringing his precious baby to the vet to get checked out
  • He begs his coach to run home and check on you, but he is denied his request; practice must go on because competition season is fast approaching

  • Seung-Gil rests a hand on his dog’s back and holds you tighter, his smile not faltering as he admires his two angels
A reminder that

Just five months ago, Even was suicidal.  His mental illness is not only something that is difficult to deal with but can you imagine the shame and heartbreak he must be feeling as a result of what went down at Bakka?  Even is an avoider, yes, but this is a defense mechanism.  Some shit just really, really hurts and Even just isn’t ready to deal with it yet.  Even lost everything after Bakka.  And he just can’t, can’t lose Isak.   And he is terrified of how his past will affect his relationship with Isak when he learns about it.  Maybe not losing him, but how Isak sees him as a person.  During last season, Isak’s greatest fear was that being gay would erase/define his entire identity, but Even’s shame was also a reflection of that - being  bipolar defines him, that it writes his story.  In this season, Even’s struggle is mirroring Sana’s - “please don’t let me be misunderstood.”

Tears were shed. so SO many tears were shed. I love Todoroki so much. I didn’t imagine I’d be left crying out of happiness instead of sadness, but here i am, being so happy for Todoroki that i just want to scream. I love this manga and anime so much. 

the first anime to ever make me cry. Todoroki is one of the most complex characters out there, I’d say. I am so happy with how this was animated. god I’m such a mess right now. I literally just finished the episode and I’ve just wiped my tears away. Todoroki’s past, and most important memories were most definitely what drew me to tears, combined with the beautifully animated version of his flames. I’m so in love with him, and the series as a whole, and GODDAMNIT I will always remember this episode. jesus fucking christ. thanks to literally every single voice actor, Kaji Yuki especially, and thanks to every single person who animated this. 

boy this was one heck of a ride. I can only imagine what the whole Stain incident is going to do to me. 

What Ianto would've been like in Miracle Day

But like can’t you imagine what Ianto would be like if he was in Miracle Day? How cute he would be around Anwen. And how cynical and sarcastic he would be towards Rex. And how the entire team would have to hold him back from beating the shit out of Oswald at any chance he could. He could have been in Miracle Day, he really could have been. Yes things would need to be changed but Ianto could have made the season so much better.

Something’s up with Arya

Okay, let’s not pretend realistically that Arya wouldn’t be totally fucked up mentally, coming home after everything she’s been through.

Like, let’s think of the possibilities of what she might be dealing with, especially after the House of Black and White. Everyone just assumes that “Oh she’s badass now, she trained to be an assassin” like, hold up, girl is probably suppressing a serious case of PTSD, who knows, clearly the Arya that the show has so far given us this season definitely feels different. 

She brings up something Sansa was forced to do YEARS ago, as proof that Sansa has ulterior motives? Let’s be real, Arya has seen some shit, she’s done some shit, that all of us couldn’t even possibly imagine going through. All the while, it’s happened to her while she was on the run and essentially fearing for her life the entire time.

 Sure, she’s on a different level of emotionally strong, but theres no way she’s not dealing with something right now, maybe that something that she’s dealing with is what’s making her susceptible to Littlefinger’s ploy, to turn her against Sansa, maybe anxiety that it’ll be Sansa’s actions that throw her whole world upside-down all over again, like when they were children in Kings Landing.

Arya has seen her family ripped away from her not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES. The last one being at the Vale of Arryn, when she and the Hound are turned away, hearing that her last remaining family member is dead. Remember that scene? Arya just laughed, and later when the Hound was lying there dying, she stared at him with that soulless expression, and then just walked away. 

The girl had her identity beaten out of her, she’s been starved and she’s been blind and hunted, and she clearly kills without remorse, something is definitely up with our girl, and I really hope the show delves a bit deeper into it, instead of the “she’s ooooh mysterious cause she’s an assassin” I mean, she’s also still a kid, like 15 in the show, max.

Anyway that’s my theory, discuss!

things that will forever make me bitter: 

  • mickey said i love you in a voicemail to ian while ian was cheating on him lmao and the voicemail was never brought up again
  • two out of the five kisses between ian and mickey had them both covered in blood, one had mickey shot afterwards, one (two technically I suppose) didn’t even air and was a dream sequence. so they had one happy, not violent kiss. in five seasons of being together. nice. 
  • mickey and mandy both confessed their love to a g*allagher only to have that love mocked back at them. in their 5 seasons on the show, no one told these abused teenagers that they were loved. awful. 
  • mickey had to hear his homophobic father call gay people all kinds of slurs his entire life. mickey then came out because ian forced him to lmao and ian then a season later called him these same slurs because mickey?? god forbid?? gave a shit about ian??
  • the fact that ian had to be paid money to go see mickey in prison when mickey was in there because he was trying to get back at sami for putting ian in military prison 
  • no one caring mickey was being shot at even though the gallaghers had treated mickey like family the entire season lmao imagine how that made mickey feel wow i’m so mad
  • mickey got prison for eight years for a crime that there wasn’t any evidence for while g*llaghers do insanely illegal shit including murder and get away with it. 
  • that awful scene in 6x01. i can’t even talk about it tbh. 
  • the fact that the writers were so bitter about mickey and his popularity that they used any opportunity possible in season 6 episodes and on fucking twitter to try to ruin his character in the minds of viewers. 

i actually get kind of mad when people are like “oh why does gwen care so much about what other people think in tdas!! character derailment!!”

gwen got enough hate in-universe for getting out of a toxic relationship that she didn’t feel she was able to handle (and yes she needed to talk to trent first, but she was still viciously hated by a lot of people in-universe- see aftermath II).

in season 3 she made a horrible mistake and knew it was wrong and called herself a horrible person in secret despite enjoying what she did. she did continue to defend herself in public but it was clear she was very mad at herself and knew she was in the wrong. she got much more shit than duncan in (and out…) universe (and while she deserved to be called out duncan was way worse given he was the one who cheated and didn’t seem to feel bad at all about it yet he got much less shit and  even got commended). 

i imagine gwen lost a lot of support off the show because of that, and she’s already a loner. she may not be entirely by choice, since she did mention in season one she sometimes wishes she could be a social party girl but doesn’t feel she’s able to be. she prefers to scare people than feel like shes weak and following the crowd, which maybe makes her feel dependent. i also consider she may try to be rough on the outside to counter her own stress (and her diary may be important to her to release her true feelings that she doesn’t want anyone else to know about lest she be seen as too “girly” or cliched), and this has been a thing since tdi. she may also just avoid attention as to not risk any negative attention. so after the love drama, after all the friends and conflict, i imagine she lost hope that anyone would see her as a cool edgy goth girl anymore and just as a bad person, not even scary bad (which she does probably like to be) but morally bad.

so when tdas comes along she distances herself from duncan, knowing their relationship caused her guilt, and she desperately tries to apologize to courtney. she really wants to be a good person, even if she doesn’t really know how to apply herself or communicate with others. being labeled as a villain just made her feel horrible, like she is a bad person and no one wants to like her. so she needs to rid herself of the guilt desperately. tdas was shit but this does make sense to me.

I just don't understand why

all my lesbians and bisexuals die or get fucked over. Like why are they so expendable? First Lexa, Faking It gets cancelled, I wait through 6 seasons of bullshit to get like what three scenes of Emison who are now supposed to be endgame after being bait forever, Pippy and TMI breakup, and more I’m too upset to remember. So I migrate my ass to Person of Interest because Shaw got shot and lived *holy shit groundbreaking* only to have Root shot to further Finch’s character development. I honestly couldn’t even watch the episode tonight because if just seeing the gif sets and spoilers did this to me then I can’t imagine what seeing it in its entire context would be like

Not even shitting on the writers or whatever I’m just upset that as a bisexual woman of color I do not feel that I have positive representation or living representation. It’s as if the world is saying you will never get a happy ending or will be the background wheels for someone else’s story. That might not have been the shows intention but it is how I feel. I become invested in these shows and characters only to relive the utter devastation I felt when Lexa died. I just don’t think it’s fair.

8

We’re back to the same two choices we’ve known our entire lives. Toil for another man’s benefit or  s t e a l  for our own. Unless, Captain Flint just showed us a third way. A reconciliation, pardons and not because we need to apologize for what we’ve done. Not because we got any desire to go back to where we came from, but because maybe, with a little help, this place could be the reason we never have to do either again.

A few thoughts on Sense 8

1. Had to power through ep. 1 but breezed through the rest with joy.

2. Lito being born while his entire family looses their shit over a telenovella was the funniest shit ever

3. All the fucking tears, ohy my god

4. Whispers is a terrifying villain and he does fuck all for the most part

5. Wolfgang.  Everything Wolfgang.  

6. Sun.  All the Sun.

7. I have never seen a show with so much potential in character development and breakdown.  Imagine in season two if they had one of the Sense8 have schizophrenia, or Disassociate Identity Disorder, or Agoraphobia.  Imagine if one of them is blind, or paralyzed, imagine a hardcore Ace experiencing second hand sex.  

THERE IS SO MUCH POTENTIAL

In other news, hey Netflix!  If you’re short on ideas hit me up, I got about a million more.    

Why Derek's death pushed me over the edge with Grey's Anatomy, and why it should push you over too

I’ve been watching Grey’s Anatomy for so long that I’ve stuck by through all the ridiculousness out of loyalty. After Lexie’s and Mark’s deaths, I was extremely upset, but it was not a reason to stop watching becuase they were not essential to the story. Killing off Derek  however, screws up the entire dynamic of the show, becuase Derek Shepard and Meredith Grey’s love story is the core of the show, and it has been for 10 years.  Meredith has gone through more hell than any fictional character even imaginable: a bomb, a drowning, a gunman, a plane crash, her mother’s death, her sisters death, and now her husband. (Did I miss anything?) And this episode wasn’t even good! There was many instances that had absolutely no logic. And Shonda kept trying to be cute and shit paralleling the series premiere.  But alas, instead of ending the show RESPECTABLY  after 11 seasons, giving the fans the ending it deserves(with Derek alive), it shall continue for Shonda’s incomprehensible reasons (If it even gets a renewal). It should have ended years ago. Also if Cristina freaking Yang doesnt show up for this funeral, I’m definitely out. I’m not going to stick around and watch a show focused on a bunch of characters I don’t even care about. Thank you Shonda for ruining the show, for now I won’t even be able to rewatch one of my favorite shows, as I will have to witness the beautiful, complicated relationship of Derek and Meredith turn into a tragic love story. And that’s not a compliment honey. Screw you Shonda, truly, screw you.

Do you have any headcanons for Farkle's relationships with his family as he grows up? -- Donniebaarnes

ooooooooooooooooooooohh boy you have just opened up a can of worms this may or may not end up more rant-y and full of speculations than headcanon-y I’m sorry in advance

  • Okay I am just so…suspicious about why Jennifer Basset is Farkle’s mom
  • Like OMFG
  • Okay I get from some perspective it’s cool to have another Double Legacy child other than Riley (and Auggie) and it could be used to argue for riarkle but WOW SO RANDOM??
  • Especially since Jen and Stuart never interacted on BMW. But seriously…Why Jen? There’s like a plethora of other guest characters they could have used! Wendy? TK? Lauren? Topanga’s girl friend who just kinda vanished when Angela showed up? The girl Shawn agreed to become ‘Veronica’ for? Like all these ladies had the same amount of screen time with Stuart (which is none) and had just as much a chance of marrying and reproducing with him.
  • What do we all know about Jennifer from bmw? She’s smart, manipulative, petty, and batshit. And they even referenced some of that on the one gmw episode we’ve seen her in, and she just brushed it off as if kidnapping and handcuffing Shawn to a boathouse is a normal teenage mistake omfg
  • Also we’ve seen Stuart on the show 4 times now and Jen one which makes me wonder
  • So why make her Farkle’s mom if they make him barely like her? (Because really…he's barely like her omg.) Well, from a writing perspective, I personally would use this to the advantage to make Farkle more like the Shawn character on GMW
  • Like I know it’s been set up as Maya, but really, what do Shawn and Maya actually have in common?
  • Shawn dealt with being dirt poor, and homeless a few times. An alcoholic father, a mother who ran away all the time even though she claimed to love him (Who also later sent him a letter saying ‘I’m not your real mom never contact me again’). When his mother was there, his parents fought all the time, loud enough that he would run away to Cory’s place sometimes. His father’s alcoholism was mostly crippling, meaning they had very little income because Chet wasn’t able to keep a job. Was frequently left home alone. We knew Chet loved Shawn (and Virna claimed to), but both parents were completely incapable of showing it. Acted out with all of his authority figures as a way of coping.
  • Maya’s father walked out when she was five, money is tight but she’s still middle class, very smart but decides not to try in school, has a bumpy relationship with her mother but that’s mostly because Maya chooses to put the distance there??? Katy is no Chet or Virna. She does absolutely nothing but bust her ass to make sure she can afford to give Maya everything she needs, and even though she’s busy she does reach out. Maya chooses to go to the Matthews, who she teases but has clear respect for, instead of her mom. Katy let Maya hate her for years because she wanted her to think well of Kermit. She actively does everything she can for her daughter and lets her know she loves her/is proud of her. And even in Girl Meets Forgiveness, we got to see Kermit give Maya the closure that Virna never gave Shawn- he understands he massively fucked up and doesn’t expect her to ever forgive him, but he is sorry and he does care about her.
  • Now. Okay. Farkle. His situation won’t match up /entirely/ with Shawn’s, because Shawn was so poor they could barely afford clean water sometimes, while Farkle’s the son of a multibillionaire. But that’s good, from a writing stand point. Telling a story similar but different, you know? Okay, anyway, we know Stuart and Jen fight. Constantly. We know Jen runs out on Stuart constantly, but always comes back anyway. Just from their, like, 3 scenes together in GM I Am Farkle, we see that she’s clearly in control in the marriage. We know their fighting is so bad things are being thrown at each other. It’s never said on the show, but Farkle spends more time hanging out on Riley’s fire escape than anywhere else. With him mentioning his parents all the time, it makes me feel like he’s there to get away from the yelling. His relationship with Stuart shows clear affection, but also seems strained. We know Stuart gets swamped at work a lot and Farkle’s left home alone quite often. Where Shawn had a problem of his parents unable to find work, Farkle’s parents seem to work too much to worry about him sometimes. So it’s set in a different situation, but it’s the same feelings of emotional neglect, of hearing your parents screaming at each other all the time, of feeling trapped in a bad situation. And Farkle also has started acting out in school a little bit- nothing drastic like letting his grades drop, but he does call Cory names and in the beginning of GM New Teacher, when the old guy didn’t turn up to class, he smirked at Maya and said “Did we do it? Did we finally break him?” Obviously implying he had a big hand in antagonizing the man into retirement, which just doesn’t seem like something you’d expect from the son of Stuart Minkus omg
  • So, personally, I would use all this and expand more on Stuart and Jen’s problems, focus more on how they effect Farkle, and bring him up to a more Shawn-like role.
  • Say, Stuart and Jen’s fighting gets a lot worse so he’s spending more and more and more time at the Matthews apartment
  • And no one thinks much of it at first but he really starts getting snarky and looking sleep deprived and acting out and his grades are slipping a bit so everyone’s getting concerned
  • And they eventually figure out his parents have gone from one or two arguments a week to screaming at each other almost every day
  • They could probably get a divorce at some point and see how a custody battle would effect him.
  • Maybe Jen would want to move back to Philly and we could get a retelling of the “Topanga forced to move to Pittsburg” storyline
  • Cory and Farkle could take on a more Turner and Shawn dynamic because that’s all I want in this life
  • They could dedicate time to Stuart once again trying to fix him and he’s sons relationship.
  •  Like obviously they love each other but it’s strained and THEY DID NOT CALL FARKLE PIPPIN FOR A THROWAWAY JOKE I WILL NOT ACCEPT THAT
  • If Farkle is really identifying with Pippin then that’s something to be concerned about but it would also be a great plotline to watch play out- and one problem Pippin has is his father has way too many expectations he doesn’t feel he can live up too
  • That’s another great parallel with Shawn- Shawn had no pressure or expectations put on him, he felt like the universe wanted him to fail. Farkle would be in the complete reverse of that situation I AM GEEKING OUT FROM A WRITER STANDPOINT RIGHT NOW JESUS CHRIST COULD YOU IMAGINE
  • And come on, anyone with eyes can tell that something is up with Farkle lately- even though he’s no longer “Donnie Barnes”, he’s still acting a lot different than he used to. He’s not as animated or hyper, he almost never sounds excited anymore- with the exception of him being happy for science class in STEM, almost everything that comes out of his mouth any more sounds…tired. Like, forced almost. He just has like a defeated air about him. Do you know what I mean??? And I can get wanting to stop dressing how he did because classmates, but it’s a big jump to go from bright colors into all black and greys. A lot of tv shows tend to use characters in all dark colors to show that they’re depressed or going through a rough time.
  • And we saw his friends worry at first but then drop the subject. We’ve never seen his parents comment on it- hell, we’ve literally only seen Jen interact with him in one episode, and even that was a little weird omfg
  • So basically I need them to bring both actors back and chop chop on an overarching Farkle plotline omfg
  • But since they seem to have an easier time bringing Lee Norris in- Farkle eventually telling his dad he doesn’t want to take over Minkus International COULD YOU IMAGINE
  • Or Farkle snapping and fighting with his dad about why Stuart and Jen can’t get their acts together
  • We can finally figure out how the hell Stuart and Jen even happened in the first place
  • I mean like an explanation other than “She told me to marry her”
  • That line alone is on my radar holy shit could you imagine if they took the time to talk about how men can be caught in abusive relationships too???? How they barely get any attention or people don’t believe them???? OMFG
  • There is just so much that could be done with Farkle and his family I’m freaking out just thinking about it I cannot write a couple of solid headcanons because it would just spur out into an entire fucking season of this show
  • I’m sorry omfg

I’ve been hearing a lot of talk recently about “How the 40k setting could be made better/less oppressive/more productive/nicer/etc”…

It seems to have escaped these people (or they seem to ignore) that 40k is supposed to be as oppressive and backward as is functionally viable. This is the setting where the creators invented an entire alternate reality within the setting just so they could shit on the mortal races even more than was physically possible.

The point of 40k - as has been the point since its conception - is that it’s probably the worst setting imaginable, deliberately turned up to 11, and is only seasoned with sporadic instances of nobility, wisdom, justice, and genuine progress just to break up the entropic monotony and provide context to the otherwise-irredeemable setting.
In 40k - irrespective of your favourite faction - nobody is the “good guy”, by any normal standards. Everyone is the villain. Even the ostensible good guys are far worse than the genocidal regimes of the 20th century. They make The Galactic Empire from Star Wars seem tolerant, inclusive, gentle, and peace-loving.

I speak with absolute conviction when i say that the vast majority of the fandom (both on Tumblr and off) does not want a “nice” or “optimistic” 40k (as demonstrated by the protestations surrounding the introduction of the Tau, forcing GW to alter their fluff so as to make them more Orwellian).
40k is grimdark. 40k is humanity at its absolute worst - not just morally, but also intellectually and organisationally - save for the occasional goodness of an insignificant few. That is its “prime directive”.

This has just been bugging me. If you want optimism in a sci-fi setting, watch Star Trek. That’s where it belongs.

“Forget the power of technology and science, for so much has been forgotten, never to be re-learned.
Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war.
There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods…”
