is because these scenes are the reason why I started watching Shameless!

Season 2 Klance and Shallura Analysis

Alrighty so this is another one of those voltron prediction/theory/rant its basically an analysis of some parts of season 2 not all bc that would take me forever but just a few key parts (aka the key to my heart Klance okay bye). So grab a drink because this is an essay folks that I spent way too much time on than I should have. Let’s begin shall(ura) we? (I hate myself)

So I’m gonna start with a very good and very platonic (in my opinion) relationship, which is K//allura. Okay okay, they have so much potential to be bffs its exciting.

First off, I took the whole Galra Keith and Allura tension as a message the creators wanted to convey to the viewers about judging someone merely by their race. Honestly I really love it when tv shows, especially kids shows, integrate bigger ideas like racism into their stories. Its subtle yet satisfying and I really really appreciated this particular scene with Keith and Allura.

Allura is describing her hatred for the Galra which is basically her hatred toward a part of Keith that he can’t even control. He never chose to be Galra, it’s just in his blood. And obviously that hurts him because its a part of who he is:((

Like ugh this is so sweet guys. So as you know from the title of this, I don’t ship K//allura at all, but this scene was very special to me in a much different way than how I feel from a romantic interaction. Like this is a genuine moment between two characters that are haunted by the same group, the Galra. Keith is part Galra, he has a part of the enemy inside of him which is probably causing inner turmoil maybe even self-hatred within him. And Allura as we know hates the Galra for killing her entire civilization. These two have a deep character development from this scene alone. We see that Allura has matured from being bitter toward Keith for being Galra to understanding that a person should not be judged by their blood but who they truly are. Also we see that Keith has accepted the fact that yes he may have a part of the enemy within him, but that does not mean he has to be anything like them. He is also pretty stand-off ish and doesn’t like opening up necessarily. He’d much rather keep to himself (other than Shiro), but he is finally opening up to someone else as well. He forgives Allura immediately despite how offensive her bias opinion was towards him. I just love Keith. 

So these two are super close now or should be? Which is pretty awesome considering… Keith is super close to Shiro too. SO now he’s close to both Shiro and Allura who are both, might I remind you all, much older than would be appropriate for him to have a romantic relationship with. Anywho, this reeks of space parents and an angsty teen.

Which then leads to Shallura and why I believe it is pointing toward canon woot woot love these goobers. Alright so I’m solely focusing on a few scenes in particular where my heart was pounding and my eyes watering and I was clutching my heart while screaming at my computer screen. The feels man the feels. 

I just about swooned at this. Like these underrated moments are what really get me. Like I love the whole Shiro taking Allura’s hand and telling his wife to get some rest, that got me feeling some sort of way. But this scene guys. In the heat of battle, Shiro is concerned for Allura. He’s basically saying “I wish I could be there to take care of her but Coran you have to do it for me.” I cannot guys I cannot.

She could’ve called for anyone else. Was it Keith? NOPE IT WAS SHIRO, PEOPLE!!

Never forget honestly. This is the face of a broken man. I have never seen Shiro more distressed and this pic doesn’t do it justice but when you watch this scene his eyes are glistening like he’s about to cry. The calm, collected leader Shiro is on the verge of tears? omg I can’t. 

Honestly this is my weakness. When a character gets hurt and another character goes ballistic and rages. Like Shiro is so determined to kick ass in this scene and avenge Allura. End me. 

For Shallura, they both have an understanding that they need each other. They are each other’s support especially considering they both are the leaders and are the older ones of the group. They help bear each other’s responsibility which is much different than Klance’s dynamic. For Klance it is much more playful and focused on chemistry. And also because they are younger it is much more naive and afraid. Both Keith and Lance obviously care for each other but they try not to show it especially when the other is present. They are self-conscious and afraid of what the other will think, that the other doesn’t feel the same way. Shiro and Allura, however, both know that they care for each other and they aren’t afraid to express it through calling each other’s name during battle and other small gestures like that.

Which I forgot to mention that everyone is freaking out over a simple hug between Allura and Keith but like have you noticed that both Klance and Shallura have not had a proper hug yet? Ummmm is this a slow burn fic or… Seriously tho, I’ve watched plenty of shows and animes (I’m shameless) to know that usually the canon couple does not have that special hugging and seal-the-deal scenes quite so early in the series because all the anticipation builds up until the perfect scene is created. I swear a tender Klance and Shallura moment is coming I swear. 

Which then leads to my mains, Klance. I just have to admit that one of the many reasons I love these two is because of the fact that Keith and Lance are like my fav characters of all time. And I can relate to both of them at the same time idk. Anyway, back to what’s important: evidence of canon.

So… Do I really need to show these? Like these scenes do not need further analysis it just reeks of dorks-in-love-who-don’t-know-they’re-in-love-with-each-other-and-who-don’t-know-that-the-other-is-in-love-with-them. Man I love Klance. 

So instead let’s over-analyze a few other scenes…

“Babe I thought you would have my back.”

“First you forget the bonding moment now this.”

Look this one is a stretch lol but just look at Keith’s face. When you watch this scene, Keith goes from his signature annoyed and irritated look to a betrayed and frustrated look. Maybe that’s just me, but aside from that, he doesn’t necessarily look pissed off, his face changes from his usual pissy look to something much different. Obviously what Lance says does calm him down enough not to yell back at him, but he also looks frustrated because no one understand him or his secret about his past with the Blade of Mamora and all that good junk at this point. I think it is especially bothering him that he can’t just upfront say what he is hiding, and instead he knows he is looking like a fool in front of them (and especially Lance). 

Body language is important. Keith turns around as not to face them, I think he is hurt because obviously this whole situation is important to him but not even Lance seems to understand him. And I seriously think Keith and Lance have like this weird mutual understanding usually. Like ya they fight I get that, but usually they kinda get what the other is trying to get at I feel, idk maybe thats just me. 

Let’s take a moment to appreciate how blue Lance’s eyes are in this… I love my son…

So like if you look closely at this scene you notice that when Lance is making eye contact with Keith, Keith has his typical “I hate you Lance but really I don’t but I’m gonna pretend like I do” face. But right when Lance looks away Keith actually looks sad and kinda hurt. Out of everyone, he hates that Lance is the one revealing his flaws, and even he knows its true. Lance stop insulting your husband. He’s actually sensitive about what you think of him:(((

Uhhh lowkey I think Keith is just as insecure as Lance is, but he just doesn’t show it… Oh the Klangst!

And another thing we get to see in Season 2 is that Lance is showing ALOT of concern of Keith’s wellbeing which is pretty big if you ask me because season 1 was basically Pining!Keith worried about his boyf. Now we get to see some worried Lance.

Honestly, like I mentioned before, the creators are going for a slow burn. And both Shallura and Klance definitely have their little hints and subtle moments that are very easily missed. But that’s the point. If it’s too obvious then the ending won’t be as powerful, the couples won’t be as special. Also, the development of both of these couples is going slow but very well thought out and I actually appreciate it a lot. I know for a fact K//allura won’t be canon because their interaction is too straight-up(lol) for it to be canon. It could be said as “predictable” but idk I just get a total brotp vibe from them nothing more, plus if they were hinting at canon for them, they wouldn’t have them hug so soon. Also their reactions and facial expressions toward the hugs and touches would be very different. It wasn’t tender like the Bonding Moment™ or the Shallura hand grab™. Facial expressions and reactions are key! Keith looked indifferent when Allura fell into his arms and their hug was sweet yes but it wasn’t hesitant and nervous like a couple who just discovered their feelings for one another would react. It was a hug between two people who recognize their bond. It was a strong bond yes, between two lovers? no I don’t think so. Allura, herself even confirmed how she now viewed the paladins as her family and it just felt to much like a familial bond I couldn’t see anything more to it. If Kallura was to be canon they would have more subtle moments than in-your-face big moments. Little details in the way Keith or Allura would look, or in the background they would be gazing at each other (*cough* like Keith does to Lance *cough*) It’s the little things that count, remember that.

The only ship I was concerned that would be canon was Sh//eith, because they have an obvious bond that is much different than everyone else. But ever since the “Shiro, you’re a bro to me” happened, it basically killed any chance of it happening. Which in my opinion is much better because Klance and Shallura have so much potential and their stories can expand and be written so well. As it is, the creators are doing a really good job at unraveling their stories slowly but just enough as to give the viewers hope which is the goal usually for tv shows. They try to make the shippers suffer sometimes *sigh*. 

Anywho, if you read up to this point thanks for listening to me rambling about space parents and space ranger partners lol! I loved season 2 because it revealed a lot about Keith not only through the obvious backstories and blade of mamora stuff but also through his interactions. And yes Keith is my fav lol. Anyways, I am 99.9% sure Klance and Shallura are gonna be canon but by no means am I saying you shouldn’t ship what you want. You do you, folks. Ship on and enjoy the show!

Out of all your OTPs what are your top10 (in order) ?

1. Kim Shin and Eun Tak, Goblin: The Lonely and Great God

I keep saying this but very rarely do couples from new shows become my OTP, I have them as number one because I haven’t had this kind of reaction to any other ship. I would cry days after the show’s finale when I would just hear a song from the show’s OST. There is so much earnest and sincere emotion between them and Gong Yoo and Kim Go-eun have great chemistry, their relationship was tragic in a really beautiful way and cute in the most heartbreaking way, their bickering was done with so much conviction and the pain at whenever they separated was felt deeply. Like I believed in this couple.

2. Stefan and Elena, The Vampire Diaries

I don’t think I really need to explain why SE is one of my top OTPs since so much of this blog is dedicated to going into detail as to why that is; in a nutshell, they have that soulful, passionate, transcendental love that is nuanced and complex and rarely seen.

3. Jax and Tara, Sons of Anarchy

This is a ship that’s rooted in chemistry because their romance isn’t logical or rational, there is so much danger and pain and violence surrounding them, anyone in their right mind wouldn’t be involved with Jax and his mother and his club but the pull between him and Tara is undeniable, it’s a pull that’s existed even though they were apart for 10 years and their love is passionate and it takes them to dangerous, destructive places but it’s heartfelt and overwhelming and not many people can pull off that kind of dynamic.

4. Mickey and Ian, Shameless

Like I said last night, I thought the saying “I love you so much it hurts” was stupid until I was introduced to Gallavich because there is such a wholehearted affection for each other that it’s almost like neither of them can breathe yet at the same time their relationship acted as a breath of fresh air. It’s the one ship that I thought was redemptive and toxic at the same time and Noah and Cameron have such intense chemistry, the angst between them is insane and I think they manage to show the struggle Mickey has with being gay in a way that was heartbreaking to watch without it being sappy and cliched and that made you feel so bad for both him and Ian so that when he finally embraces who he is, it’s like the best thing in the world. And the way Mickey cares for Ian is so unique to Mickey like it’s softhearted and violent and it’s just, this ship is a study in contrasts and it works, which is very hard to do.

5. Noah and Rosalee, Underground

Noahlee is another ship that’s new but that I ship passionately because first of all Aldis and Jurnee have great chemistry, the minute they’re in a scene together in the pilot, those longing gazes were enough for me, second of all I always love seeing young black couples onscreen, third of all, within the context of their lives and of the show — which is a show about enslavement and about the various avenues taken to combat the institution of enslavement — the fact that they fell in love is revolutionary, the fact that white supremacy didn’t beat out their will to have affection for each other is a subversive act in it of itself. Related to that, Noah is a very passionate character, a very strong character who believed in Rosalee, believed she could and would do great things before even she realized she had the strength to do so and his drive inspired her while loving Rosalee provides Noah with a sense of peace and hope.

6. Crixus and Naevia, Spartacus and Sura, Agorn and Nasir, Spartacus

I have all three ships in the same number because I love them all equally but differently. The Spartacus series portrays such passionate ships.

Crixus and Naevia,

I really enjoyed them because they’re such a pure romance; when we’re introduced to Crixus he’s legit a dick and the only thing he cares about is glory and honour and being the best gladiator and he falls in love with Naevia and is given more complexity and he’s softer because of her.

Spartacus and Sura

are tragic and you don’t see much of their relationship and what you do see is mostly in flashbacks because they were separated, both sold into slavery, but Spartacus refuses to die because he wants to see Sura again and he starts a rebellion because of her, he loves her absolutely that he’s unable to love any other woman, like it’s intense.

Agorn and Nasir

were a ship I didn’t think I would pay much attention to because I didn’t really care for either character but Agorn and Nasir loved each other so fiercely, like I dare anyone to try and tear us apart and the devotion between them was extremely intense plus Dan and Pana had great chemistry.

7. Oz and Willow, Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Willow is the character I relate to the most in Buffy so my friends and I always joke about how I’m waiting for my Oz because Ozillow was unbelievably adorable, I love them so much. Alyson and Seth had a chemistry that surprised me, I didn’t think that it would be as natural and at times intense as it was but they’re just such a feel-good ship.

8. Jackie and Hyde, That 70s Show

I don’t think anyone expected the awesomeness that is Jackie and Hyde. Mila and Danny worked really well together and I think you really got the sense that they cared deeply for one another while at the same time having the capacity to really aggravate each other and just by nature of being polar opposites who happen to care about each other, they got each other to grow — Jackie became less vain and less domineering while Hyde actually became more vulnerable and less stubborn, they were actually perfect and the writers fucked it up and I will be forever salty about that.

9. Jane and Michael, Jane The Virgin and Jim and Pam, The Office

I have them both on the same number because I love them equally for the same reasons.

Jane and Michael

External image

Pam and Jim

Jichael and Jam are both relationships in which the two people just click, they just get each other, they’re on this other plane that no one can reach and they have an intimacy and implicit knowledge of each other that isn’t the breathless intense, angst-ridden dynamic that I love but it’s as profound and significant.

10. Scott and Kira, Teen Wolf

I know Scallison is the favourite and I do love Scallison but I don’t know, Scira has a groundedness to them that I respond to more and they’re a very physical ship; a touch from Kira can still Scott’s hand or still him to calmness that his eyes stop glowing; holding Kira allows her to decompress and be comforted, she can close her eyes in relief and in security, and the way Scott and Kira run towards each other, it’s almost magnetic, like they’re being pulled together and have no choice to connect. And of course their sexual chemistry is kind of insane. But that’s the thing with Scira, there’s a gentle intensity to them because it’s like they finally achieve calm from the crazy supernatural mess when they’re touching each other or in one another’s arms or kissing each other, which makes their relationship physically intimate.

Bonus:

Vince and Jess and Matt and Julie, Friday Night Lights

Buffy and Angel, Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Chapters: 1 24 5 6 7 8 9


Of course things had been different ever since the party at the Milkovich house where Mickey and Ian’s relationship was let public. More and more often, Mickey stayed overnight at the Gallagher house. Sometimes Ian would get to go over to Mickey’s though because he, Mickey, and Mandy told the Milkovich father that he and Mandy were dating. It was a cycle that seemed to be working out nicely.

School was more different for Ian. They were constantly walking around together. Though people whispered about them, they were still scared of Mickey, they still listened to everything he said as well. Now though, people were scared of Ian too— they saw he could fight. For the first time, the scrawny redheaded Southside boy felt superior to some people, but he was still shy as shit.

Being that the boys were now growing even closer, Mickey was proud to see his boyfriend’s confidence start to raise. Since he loved showering the redhead with gifts, Mickey would always be buying him new things to either so him how much he appreciated him or how proud he was of him.

Walking into the bedroom, Lip found Ian and Mickey wrapped in each other’s arms, sound asleep. While they boys were taking a nap, Lip noticed the brand new pair of Nike sneakers that were near his and Ian’s dresser. At first he thought they were Mickey’s, but when he looked closer, he saw that they were way too big to fit Mickey’s feet. Out of curiosity, he checked the size and found them to be able to fit Ian.

Lip raised his eyebrow, but then shrugged it off because if Ian needed new sneakers why not find a way to get them. He then mostly forgot about the whole thing and went downstairs to start his homework.

* * *

Mickey and Ian walked down the stairs bickering over something really pointless. “No, Mickey, you fucking told me that you don’t like chicken noodle soup!”

“I never fucking said that, who doesn’t like chicken noodle soup?” The Milkovich boy spat back. There was an underlying chuckle in his voice though.

Lip turned his head to look at the two distracting boys. As Ian was flailing his arms in the air, Lip noticed that expensive looking watch that laid on his wrist. “Hey,” he interjected.

“What, asshole?” Mickey replied absentmindedly.

“That’s a nice watch, Ian,” Lip said with suspicion. The memory of finding those Nike sneakers came back to him. Two expensive gifts is getting a little greedy, is Ian asking for it?

Ian looked down on his wrist, and it looked like the annoyance that he had from Mickey had completely diminished. “Yeah, I know,” he turned his head to Mickey real quick. “Thanks,” he replied, but Lip didn’t know who it was aimed for.

Mickey proudly looked at Ian, his annoyed filtered away as well. “Done being a dumbass?” He asked Ian one last time.

“You’re the dumbass,” Ian replied but they the left the house, leaving Lip no clue of where they were going.

Now though, Lip was starting to get a little weirded out. Why does Ian have all this expensive shit? Maybe one thing, here or there, but a fucking designer watch? What’s he need that shit for?

* * *

The next morning when they were on their way to school, Ian was freezing. It was a little under fifty degrees out because there was a big rainstorm that made the temperature drop. Fiona had warned Ian that the weather would be like this, but he didn’t listen. He was shivering, and didn’t have a coat, unlike Lip. “Man, why didn’t you wear warmer clothes?”

“Didn’t think it’d so fucking cold. It was just sixty-eight the other day,” Ian complained.

Mickey pulled over as he heard his boyfriend’s complaints. As Lip and Ian gave him confused looks he got out of the car, and went to the trunk. After a few moments of shifting things around, he came back and threw a clothing item at the redhead. “Brand new coat,” he said. “It’s yours.” Mickey then started driving again.

“Mickey—” Ian started but got cut off by Mickey once again.

“It’s yours,” Mickey said more sternly with a smile. It was cute how Ian always tried to get Mickey to stop buying him stuff— cute because he’d get this soft and thankful eyes.

Ian leaned over and kissed Mickey’s cheek. “Thanks,” he said appreciatively.

Lip sat in the back seat with his eyebrows raised. He couldn’t believe what he was seeing these past few days. And what the fuck? How’d Mickey just pull out a brand new coat out of nowhere? “What the fuck?” He spoke so quietly that the two boys in the front seat couldn’t even hear.

Without a word, they arrived to school. Due to Lip’s very crowded and confused mind, he took longer than his brother and Mickey did to get into the building. He was close enough to be able to catch up, but he didn’t want to at the moment so he walked slow.

Ian and Mickey entered the school together. As usual, Ian’s shoulders hunched in at the sight of all the other students, but the second Mickey’s hand laid on the small of back, he straightened up.

Lip watched as Mickey strolled to Ian’s locker with him. He didn’t know why he was watching, but for right now, his eyes were glued. Like every other day, Ian unzipped his book bag and started transferring his belongings. What caught the other Gallagher boys eye was the new array of binders that stood in his locker.

Annoyance took over Lip’s body. He needs to say something to Ian about this. It’s starting look like Mickey’s paying Ian to be with him; it’s ridiculous Not wanting to cause a scene in school, Lip decides it’d be best to wait until they get home later on.

* * *

Later that day, while Ian and Mickey went back home, Lip had to stay after school to help tutor some people. Just like he had the other morning, Lip started to forget about the whole Mickey buying Ian everything issue.

He was making his way to the L when the thoughts came back though. Once he got to his part of the Southside, he rushed home to go talk to Ian. He wasn’t sure if Mickey would be there or not by he didn’t really care.

As the eldest Gallagher approached the house, he threw his cigarette on the ground, stomped on it, and then opened the door. Surprisingly, the house was pretty quiet. He put his backpack down and looked around to find Carl on the couch with Liam. “Hey, bud. Where is everyone?”

Carl didn’t even turn to look at Lip. He was two interested in the porn that was on the television. “Fiona and Debbie are with Veronica. Ian and Mickey are upstairs,” he said plainly.

Lip rolled his eyes. “You’re like ten. Why the fuck are you watching this?” He scoffed at his little brother and then ran up the stairs.

As he got closer to the bedroom from the stairs, he heard moaning— of fucking course. When aren’t these guys fucking? Rolling his eyes, he heard Mickey say, “You okay, baby?” For some reason, he stood still and listened.

“Oh, daddy. Yes, yes, daddy,” Ian replied. “More,” he moaned. Did he just fucking say daddy?

Ready to see some weird and probably really kinky shit, Lip stormed into the room. “What the fuck, Ian?”

“What the fuck, Lip?” Ian yelled back as he and Mickey scrambled to get their clothing on.

“Asshole,” Mickey muttered at the older Gallagher boy.

Impatiently, Lip waited until they were dressed to go off on his brother. He was tapping his foot rapidly. He did not want his brother to be fucking walked on.  

Ian looked angry. His freckled cheeks were turning a shade of dark red. “Why the fuck are you in here?”

Lip scoffed rudely. He stepped forward in an intimidating way. “I get it y’know? I get wanting new and expensive things, especially when we can’t afford them, but it’s getting fucking ridiculous.”

“What? You wouldn’t accept a fucking gift ever once in awhile?” Ian spat back. His anger was still fuming. He knew Mickey would jump in any moment so he gave him a look that said don’t.

Now, Lip sarcastically chuckled. “Nah, man, I just said I get it. You though, you look fucking pathetic, Ian,” he shouted.

The word ‘pathetic’ was what started to shut Ian down. He’d been called that one too many times in the past. Pathetic, loner, loser, freak, worthless.

“He’s a fucking sugar daddy— practically fucking paying you to be his boy toy. You like looking like some fucking kept boy? A fucking kept boy, Ian,” Lip spat.

Mickey had smoke coming from his ears. He wanted to punch Lip in the face, but he knew that Ian would be very disapproving of that. Instead, he grabbed Lip by the chest and pushed him back a little. “Shut the fuck up, you fucking asshole.”

Ian was frozen— completely frozen. His eyes batted up to make eye contact with his brother, and as soon as it did, as single tear dropped down. Mickey didn’t notice it, but when Ian whispered, “But I love him,” he saw it. Ian just admitted to loving Mickey. Before Mickey could do anything, Ian ran out of the room, crying.

Very angrily, Mickey slammed Lip against the wall. “What the fuck is your problem?” He gritted his teeth as he spoke. “You do fucking realize I’m buying him shit either because he actually fucking needs it, or I caught him gawkin’ at it. I buy his shit to make him feel good, not because I’m fucking keeping him locked up.”

“It’s looks—”

“Shut the fuck up, fuckwad. I’m so sorry you’re jealous that he has someone who cares about him being happy. I fucking thrive on that smile that he gets whenever he sees something new. So once again, I’m sorry my sister doesn’t get you all these precious gifts— but unlike you two, me and Ian? This shit with us is fucking real, alright? I really fucking love him, but if he ever wants out, he’s out. He’s not a fucking kept boy.” He loosened his grip on Lip’s shirt. He was about to go find Ian, but he had to add one more thing. “Fuck you, asshole,” he said colder than usual.

Lip was definitely taken aback by how outward Mickey just was with his feelings. Normally Mickey would only talk like that to Ian, so it was surprising. Now he’s starting to think, maybe I was wrong.

* * *

Not caring about running on the dangerous streets of the Southside, Mickey bolted his way to that old abandoned building that he and Ian first hooked up in. He knew that was where he’d find the redhead. His lungs were burning as he ran, and he was starting to feel flushed, but it didn’t matter. Ian. He needed to get to Ian.

After about five minutes of sprinting, Mickey got to the building. When he walked in, he found Ian sitting on the ground, just staring in front of him. He did have a beer in his hand though, which is from when they left a whole pack up there. He didn’t even make his way up to the top floor, which surprised Mickey.

There was tear stains on Ian’s face. He looked sad, but sort of empty at the same time. “You think you gotta buy me shit for me to be with you?” He took a sip from his bottle. “Is he right?”

“It you think he’s right, you’re a real dumbass,” Mickey replied breathlessly. There was a bit of hurt underlying his voice as he spoke. It hurt to think about Ian thinking that though.

Ian shook his head in disbelief. “Why do you do it then?”

“Why do I do it?” Mickey scoffed. “I don’t fucking do it to keep you around. I do it because I love how your fucking alien-looking face lights up whenever you say thank you. I do it because it helps Fiona out— there’s less you guys gotta pay for if I get you the stuff you need. I do it because you fucking deserve to have everything handed to you. I do it because I fucking love you,” he said.

Ian’s head shot up so quickly when he heard the last few words. His heart started pounding in his chest. “What’d you just say?”

“I love you,” he said confidentially. He definitely helped that Ian had said it earlier when he was arguing with Lip.

Ian nodded. “I love you too,” he waved him over. Once close enough, Ian pulled him into a hard kiss.

* * *

After texting Ian a billion times and apologizing, he finally answered Lip to tell him that they were coming home. By that time everyone was already home, and filled in on what Lip had done.

He called Veronica to come over with ice packs because he was sure either Ian or Mickey would punch him in the face the second they laid eyes on him— and he was right. Ian walked in with an enraged expression. “Ian—” Lip started.

“Shut the fuck up for a second,” Ian said and punched him directly in the eye. Mickey was snickering in the background while everyone else winced.

“Did you have to hit him so hard?” Debbie asked.

Ian and Lip nodded. “Yeah, he did,” Lip answered for him. “We good now?”

“Yeah, asshole,” Ian said in a softer voice. “We’re good now.” That’s all he had to say for Lip to feel a wash of relief. Even Mickey was grinning because that was one hell of a way to get over an argument.

blacksmithgendry  asked:

I miss your AxG headcanons so pls tell me about your favorite moments between the two and why they're important

i miss talking about them in general tbh. like im so happy about the asoiaf fandom being comatose but goddamn! i miss arya and gendry sf much. and it hurts all the more knowing their ACTUAL CANON REUNION is practically within fucking reach but grrm refuses to finish twow. its torture. but whatever. im gonna list like every single arya/gendry scene now to cope™ 

  • with ned: okay not technically a moment between them except it kinda is??? an entire book before they even meet and they have these parallel scenes with ned where we see how stubborn and defiant they are. 
  • love @ first sight: gendry is literally introduced into arya’s story defending her. i love him. 
  • the (fight) proposal: you ever notice how they mirror each other in that scene where arya tries to get gendry to fight her?? cause i have. and how they both lead the other around. which is like their relationship in a nut shell 
  • “Stubbornly, Arya dragged all the harder, pulling the crying girl along. Hot Pie scuttled back inside, abandoning them … but Gendry came back.” nuff said
  • as m’lady commands: obviously iconic. what can i say that i havent before? nothing. but i wanna emphasize the significance of arya confiding her identity in gendry. again. like jfc. he’s the only one. her arc revolves around this being a secret and fragile thing. that could make or break her. and he protects it which protects arya. and when every one else sees arry or weasel or nan gendry sees arya. the power of a name y’all. also kindred spirits. oh and gendrys shameless flirting before he finds out arya is highborn. 
  • The Female Gaze: the language here is my fave. its almost flowery for arya. (the play of muscles~~ the steel music he made~~) just like when she watches him polish his “”beautiful”” helm. even if arya isn’t consciously crushing she admires gendry abilities…….and his smoking hot bod. 
  • that time arya saw gendry naked. grrm wrote that tiny detail in for no reason im sure lmao
  • the first chapter in asos where arya’s all about the determined stubborn look on gendrys face. just some more casual observations that im sure mean nothing. oblig: “"NO!“ Arya and Gendry both said, at the exact same instant.” theres a trope for that. plus mutual teasing of hot pie. the latter two here show how they’re on the same freaking wave length. about most things at least. 
  • “In his chainmail shirt with a sword in his hand, Gendry looked almost a man grown, and dangerous.” here she goes again. 
  • acorn hall: listen im gonna keep it short on this one bc if i Start its gonna get out of control real fast. so i’ll say this: endgame 
  • the most underrated thing about the stoney sept is how arya stands on gendrys shoulders to pour water over those men. imagine his pov. ugh. but like he was there for her to literally stand on when she needed a boost.  
  • and then they have their little lovers quarrel at the peach but i love that shit too. the angst of it all. they have a real difficult time seeing the others perspective sometimes bc they’re from different worlds but i think in the future this will become easier for them. bc the worlds in for a rude awakening. bonus: i love gendry blushing. its important. 
  • Gendry hooted. “Those soft little things?” he called out.” arya’s hands have killed. gendry’s literally seen them covered in blood but then he literally yells this in a room full of people. he doesn’t see her as this killer. he still thinks she’s just a girl with soft little hands.  
  • gendry joining the brotherhood seemingly sucks but they had to be separated so they could meet when they’re older and wiser and ready 2 be together. thats storytelling 101 
  • im gonna call this bullet: god bless ned dayne. his existence is a huge neon sign of romantic subtext lmao. the mental image of gendry in this scene kills me. he was so pressed. 
  • and then gendry chased arya through the trees and the rain before she was kidnapped by the hound. he tried to save her. again. but she needs to be on her own AND I GET THAT AND I RESPECT IT because its important for their relationship and character growth 
  • their reunion. it hasnt happened yet but i already love it 
Chris Evans Fic: Disney Princess Reality

Sequel time! This is a sequel to Disney Princess Obsession, requested by the lovely @pegasusdragontiger, who wanted Chris and Sleeping Beauty to be reunited: “Sequel to Princess Obsession, She is cast in the next Avengers movie with Chris they are awkward and flirty with each other and do interviews together to promote the movie. In an interview the interviewer ask’s their favourite part or ride in Disneyland Chris of course answers as dot he fellow cast mates and everyone looks to her and she say’s she hasn’t been to Disneyland everyone ask’s why said well 1)her family never had the money and the other she hasn’t had time and Chris desides to take.”

***

So, I’ve got to ask, how has working together been since Chris’ epic humiliation after the Oscars?

‘Really dude? We’re really going to go here again?’ Flushed pink tinged Chris cheeks as he barked out an embarrassed laugh. It had taken weeks and weeks of hardcore charm offensive from him for you to drop your guard around him after his put his foot and most of his leg in his mouth when he met you on the press line at the Academy Awards, and then again when he was asked about you in an interview. And now in every interview on this fucking press tour, his massive blunder was brought up time after time.

anonymous asked:

How would each member of BTS react to their girlfriend telling them that she had been touched inappropriately by someone? Scenario: She's out having drinks w friends, and a guy they met expresses interest in her so he puts his hand on her thigh, or her lower back, and that makes her feel uncomfortable (bf isn't w her to address it face to face ofc, so she tells him when she gets home) How would they comfort her if she was alittle shaken up by it too?

Seokjin: You know how we, fans, always say that Seokjin can go into ‘mother mode’ whenever something doesn’t pleases him, or when he have to give orders and other stuff? Well, that would be it. He’s immediately going to worry, frown his eyebrows and he won’t get mad, he’d just be very upset. For many reasons: because he wasn’t there to ‘protect’ his partner, because someone dares to do those kind of stuff and because it really bothered his partner. He won’t ask for details, but he’ll do his best to reassure his boy/ girlfriend. I think that’ll they’ll end up forget about it because they won’t a big deal out of it. They’ll just move forward, but Seokjin won’t forget to come with his partner on any other night.

Suga/ Yoongi: Yoongi would see red. He would be really pissed that someone can be as spontaneous and shameless as that, though it’ll bother him a lot that he wasn’t there to protect his partner. He’ll be mad at himself, more than anything else, even more thinking that he can’t do anything about it now – it’s too late. I can see him getting a bit annoyed at his partner because they didn’t call him, or didn’t ask for help to their friends, or because his partner didn’t leave the place right away. It’s a situation that would bother him a lot, and he’ll nag more than try to reassure his partner, but it’ll only mean that he cares a lot.

J-Hope/ Hoseok: I don’t see Hoseok getting mad at all. I mean, it’ll still bother him on such a level, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was smoke coming out of his ears, you know – but he knows that’s a situation that already happened and he can’t do anything to change it. I don’t think that he’ll make a big scene out of it, and just like Seokjin, he might try to move on rather quickly, but it’s only because he doesn’t want to linger on this for too long. Though, there is a point where, just like Yoongi, he might nag at his partner for not calling him, but after making sure that his partner is alright again, that’d be the end of the story.

Rap Monster/ Namjoon: I think that Namjoon would more or less have the same reaction as Yoongi. He’s not a violent type of guy, but I think that amongst all the members, he knows the best how to treat someone. I’m saying that he has the most open mind, and knows what to say, how to act the most (that’s exactly why he’s a leader too), so – it all comes to say that he’ll have the most mature reaction. He’ll be pissed that someone dares to do something like that, not only to his partner, but to whomever that feels uncomfortable. It’ll bug him for a while, especially thinking that he’s useless in this kind of situation – so the only thing he’ll be able to do, is making sure his partner is always with friends that he trusts, and that his partner would call him the minute things start to get out of hand.

Jimin: This situation would frustrate Jimin rather anger him. If I think they’d all pretty much have the same reaction (as in feeling useless over something that’s already happen), well Jimin would nag at his partner before comfort him/ her. He’ll tell them that they should have left the moment they felt uncomfortable, or seek help towards their friends or just do whatever so they didn’t endure this rude stranger’s behavior. He’ll have that ‘disappointed’ look on his face that’s quite scary, to be honest, and he’ll have to express that no, he isn’t angry, because the look on his face is misleading. After he’s calmed down though, he’ll try to reassure his partner the best he can.

V/ Taehyung: Taehyung would be curious before angry, probably. He’ll just to his partner what exactly the stranger did and said, and he’ll react only by some “Oh"’s and “Mmh"’s, shaking his head or frowning from time to time. I don’t think he’ll be angry at all, maybe a little annoyed, but I believe Taehyung is the kind of person that won’t get concern over things out of his reach, over things he can’t control. I’m not saying he won’t care, far from that, but I think he’ll just tell his partner that now at least it’s over, and it’ll be all.

Jungkook: I’m not entirely sure about Jungkook’s reaction, I can’t exactly tell if he’ll be annoyed or angry, but I know that if he sees that his partner was pretty shaken, he’ll reassure him/ her like he knows, maybe trying to joke a little bit just to make his partner crack a smile. If it bugs him, he won’t show it at all, but every time his partner will go out, he’ll always make sure that he/ she doesn’t go alone, where are they going, with who and what time they should be home. It’s the ‘watching out from afar’ attitude I can see him pull over time.

Okay but can I be cliche and drop a tylerxreader coffee shop au except tyler is the barista and the reader is that weird girl who comes in and orders a different drink every time and just sits on her computer for hours in the corner of the shop 😂

I LOVE THIS OKAY LIKE
-Amy, Tyler, and Kat work at the coffee shop

-Amy doesn’t work she just drinks coffee and talks to this dumb, loud short guy that always comes in. His name is Mark, and she’s the only one who takes his order (it’s also the only order she takes all day)
“Name?”
“Mark”
She only ever writes “Dopey” or “Grumpy” or “Lord Farquaad” depending on his mood.

-Ethan hangs out there all day and plays video games. They’re kind of friends but no one knows anything about his real life.

-Tyler hates this job, he’s just working it for the summer, and he is so tired of the two girls (lazy and nosy) that work with him, and he always looks forward to going home and sleeping.

-He tries to be positive for everyone (he draws hearts on everyone’s cups. Sometimes messages when they’re slow. He had a business man look at him funny when he wrote “sometimes it rains. Bring an umbrella :)” on his cup once. Tyler hasn’t seen him since)

-This girl started coming in–it’s the second week of May–Tyler remembers it’s a Tuesday, bc she seemed like she didn’t know what to drink and he told her the drink of the day (it was a pink lemonade with some silly sprinkles, he can’t remember the name) and she ordered a white chocolate latte. It’s the first thing on the left hand side of the board.
“Are you sure?” He asks–it’s 82 degrees outside, and it’s only 10 am. The temperature was only going to climb.
“Yes?” She says–it’s not insecure, it’s asking him if he’s so bold to attempt to correct her. He just flushes and gives the order over to Kathryn. When he asks for her name, she just looks at him.
“How is that your business?” She asks.
It’s her turn to be embarrassed when he explains that it’s to call her when her order is done.
“I’ll just wait,” she says instead. They aren’t busy–most everyone has gone to work, and the next rush won’t start for an hour and a half, so he let’s her wait until he hands her her drink, not before scratching a sloppy heart onto the side with his sharpie, and giving her a lopsided embarrassed smile with the pen cap between his teeth, making his cheek pucker into an involuntary dimple.
The look she gives him is equal parts embarrassed and mortified, her face flamed red, but she just takes it with a short but sincere “Thank you” and Tyler reminds her to have a nice day.

-To their surprise, she doesn’t leave. There’s only a few patrons in the shoddy little lobby, but she takes a place at the high top in the corner, her back to the wall, and slides the backpack off her shoulder and sits it in the stool beside her.
She pulls out a laptop, and Tyler watches her over the bar with low eyes as he wipes down the counter for the sixth time today as she types out fast and languid keystrokes–she’s obviously writing, and her face is set in a concentrated frown, which he finds himself copying only because he’s developed a headache from pinching his eyebrows so low.

-Kat and Amy keep shooting each other pointed glances, and giving him odd looks, but he doesn’t say anything, not while she’s there. Amy even ignores the loud boy, well, a little–because she’s too busy watching Tyler as she gathers her things around noon, slings her bag over her shoulder, and leaves without so much as a word or a glance.
Tyler’s whole body feels hot.

-Amy and Kat are immediately all over him, of course. He denies having any interest in her–and he’s sort of embarrassed that it’s a lie. He didn’t have any reason to be interested in her–she was quiet and ordinary and practically rude to him. But he’d been watching her for a solid two hours, and couldn’t fathom why.

-He certainly doesn’t expect her to show up again the next day, and he almost spills a woman’s iced tea all over her already too-sheer blouse. Amy and Kat are trying to stop their snickers as the woman–who could probably be Tyler’s mother, at least–was shameless flirting and thanking him for his service and told him he was “such a handsome young man, they don’t make them like you anymore, cupcake” but he’s too busy watching the girl watch him again, and she’s wearing headphones too big for her head.
She takes in the scene of Tyler and the business woman, and immediately casts her eyes to the floor, but none the less pulls her headphones down slowly so that they’re wound around her neck. He recognizes one of those bands the blue haired kid is always playing too loudly, but he can’t name the song.
He waits for Kat to take her order while the business woman is shoving an obscenely decent tip into the jar, but she’s just leaning against the back wall with Amy, watching Tyler flounder hopelessly before them.

-When the the woman leaves, the girl slowly steps up the counter, smiling with her lips curled in, so it looks more like a wince.
“Hey,” Tyler says at the same time the girl says “I want a passion tea”.
They both wince, before she recovers with a hello. Kat (and surprisingly, Amy) are both working hard at producing the tea while Tyler stares hopelessly at her, trying to come up with something to say.
I Love You Too Much,” he says suddenly, and behind him he hears the passion tea drop the floor, the pink liquid no don’t staining the tile, and he stares in horror as the girl in front of him chokes, her face turning bright red.
“I’m sorry?” She coughs. “What do you want? An award?”
“N-no!” He says quickly. “I mean, that’s the name of the song you’re listening to, right? I can hear it a little through your headphones.”
He watches her face change from red, to blue, to white, before her whole body deflates and she slumps against the counter, her shoulders concave.
“Yeah,” she says breathlessly, with a little laugh. “Yeah, it is. Diego Luna.”
“N-name?” He asks, after the long silence.
“I’ll wait.” She says again.
Kat scrubs the floor while Amy hands Tyler the drink, and this time he takes his time pulling out his sharpie, biting hard on the cap, drawing a smiley face with a little speech bubble, before filling the bubble with hearts. He watched the corners of her mouth lift just a little, not quite a smile, but so close.
“You draw on everyone’s cups?”
“Sometimes,” he lies.
She gives him another almost smile, before pulling her headphones back up and stalking over to the booth.

-It goes on for weeks and weeks, and Tyler hates the hours that’s she’s here, because it’s painfully silent with Amy and Kat watching them, him watching her, and her oblivious and typing away on her computer with such a focused face, it makes Tyler want to clean the window by her table just to see what she’s doing. And Tyler hates cleaning the windows.

-Tyler draws more elaborate things each day–most nights he lies awake in bed planning what he’ll write. He keeps thinking that he’s going to write his name one day, or maybe his phone number. He doesn’t.

-one day she comes in, and Tyler has her cup prepared. It’s a simple drawing, very cartoony, but it’s all he’s been working on since six am.
“Is that me?” She asks after ordering an iced dark roast. Tyler smiles.
“Yeah,” he says, almost embarrassed. He hopes he hasn’t offended her, but she just smiles. A real one this time.
Amy comes to the counter with her cup, a move that surprises both Tyler and the girl.
“Name?” Amy asks sweetly, her smile deviously cutting across her face like a razor blade.
Her lips twitch for a moment, and Tyler is worried something is wrong. She closes her eyes before beginning.
“452–”
Tyler is scrambling. She’s on the fifth number before he realizes she’s giving him her cellphone number. He writes it furiously on the cup, smudging the numbers, but he’s already got it memorized. He writes it on the receipt paper in front of him, and she watches him with a muted smile.
He’s surprised when she takes her cup and walks right out the door, not bothering to stay today. Amy raises her eyebrows, clapping him hard on the back.
“You’re welcome,” she says.
“Thanks,” he says, breathless, staring at the number again. “I’m telling that Mark guy you’re in love with him.”
“Don’t you dare!”

-He’s already beginning a text when he’s locking the door that night, but he’s shocked to see her leaning against the bricks by the front door.
“You didn’t text,” she accuses, but she’s smiling.
He shakes his phone at her in way of explanation. He swallows thickly before choking out, “Are you free tonight?”
She grins. “I’ll check my schedule. You never told me your name, by the way.” They’ve already begun the walk towards town, ignoring their cars entirely. Tyler can see the lights from the movie marquee just up the road.
“I’m Tyler,” he says shyly. He wonders if it’s too soon to hold her hand.
“Tyler,” she says, trying out the way it feels. “Not bad. My name is–”

Holy crow this was less of an au and more of a fanfiction what happened. This was so fun oh my gosh I just spent two hours doing this. I’m sorry it was so long, ah, I hope that’s okay. Thanks for the headcanons, clearly I had TOO MUCH fun ♡

Hey guys, I promised you a wolfstar fic last week and here it finally is! A little later than expected because I had interview prep to do but that interview is over now so here we are!

Bit of a daft Remus/Sirius University AU that has no title because titles are hard. 

Part 2 here.


“Really Troy? You’re jealous about her hanging out with Ryan? Ryan?”

Remus had been trying to sleep.

The first week of his masters degree had been long and filled with too much work, and far too little socialising. Even for someone like him, who generally preferred to stay in with a pizza on a Friday night than go clubbing, it was downright boring.

The problem was that he really didn’t know anyone yet. His housemates seemed nice enough, but they were on different schedules so he rarely saw them, and so far he hadn’t met anyone on his course who he particularly wanted to get to know.

And to top it all off, he couldn’t sleep – still not used to his strange new bed, the twisted shadows that crept through the window, or the way the old house creaked in the middle of the night.

“Ryan is pretty cute though, I mean…” said the same voice, and Remus put his head around the door at the bottom of the stairs to peak into the living room.

With the light from the hallway he could see his housemate more clearly, and felt a small smile form when he realised who it was. Out of the two girls and two other guys he was living with this year, Sirius definitely seemed like one of the most interesting people, and was certainly the best looking of the bunch. He was currently sprawled on the sofa in front of the tv with a huge bag of Doritos in his lap, which was a strangely attractive sight given the way his shirt rode up around his hips.

“Why are you watching high school musical in the dark at 2.30 in the morning?” Remus felt compelled to ask, stepping through the door and flicking on the light, which brightened the room considerably.

Friendly reminder that Cameron Monaghan posted a very final-sounding farewell tweet to Noel Fisher about it being a pleasure developing the relationship and story between Ian and Mickey for the past five years, while in an interview John Wells (who wrote the break up scene in the season five finale and the prison scene in the season six premiere) was still trying to bullshit fans about Mickey returning if Noel’s schedule allowed. 

Friendly reminder that, technically, Noel did acknowledge Cam’s farewell tweet and said to a fan (albeit privately and not on any social media platform) that he was done on the show as far as he knew unless he got invited back. It was after this, and after fans began pushing the actors and writers for answers about Noel’s future with the show, that we found out about Noel being on set to film the prison scene. Of course, it’s entirely possible that Noel lied but I think if he was going to lie to a fan’s face it would be to say he was returning, so as not to deal with the emotion that would follow a fan learning he was done on the show. What’s more likely is he got called back last minute, when Wells and the other writers voted on imprisoning him and Wells wrote him off the show more indefinitely. 

Friendly reminder that Isidora Goreshter posted one last picture of herself, Noel, and Cam together on set with the caption “n.i.c. for the last time,” while everyone else was still refusing to acknowledge Noel’s departure from the show as being potentially permanent, despite the fact that they all had the script and the show had literally just filmed a scene revealing Mickey’s sentencing of 15 years and ruling out any possibility of getting out earlier for good behaviour. It wasn’t until the backlash from that episode airing continued in the weeks that followed that a writer finally said look, Noel left the show, what else were we supposed to do?

If Cam was saying goodbye to Noel just shortly after the finale, obviously they’ve known all along that he was done on the show. Yet writers like Sheila Callaghan insisted they knew nothing about it and in general they continually evaded questions about this or brushed them off like they’ve done with no other character that I can recall. 

Even Jimmy’s original exit from the show, they actually confirmed on Twitter that his character was dead. Supposedly, him coming back was the result of fans wanting it, and yet we saw how well that turned out for them in the end. Maybe they kept quiet about Noel because if fans didn’t think he was gone, they wouldn’t face the same issue they apparently had with Jimmy’s fans, and then when Noel confirmed he was off the show they had to deal with the angry and upset fans anyway so they did the same thing they did with Jimmy - brought him back long enough to write him off for good.

That’s why I don’t buy this bullshit that Mickey might get out for overcrowding, because if John Wells (who I’m going to single out because he wrote the breakup and the prison scene) wanted Mickey to be accessible to the writers, he wouldn’t have locked him away for such a long sentence. Sheila Callaghan, who fans thought was on their side, gushed about “new love interests” which I guarantee was referring to Caleb. She also wrote episode 6 of this season, which is when Ian and Caleb apparently start getting serious. This is the same writer who said she wrote the Ian and Mickey kisses because she likes to watch cute boys make out. The same writer who said she wanted to see shippers sweat (as in, be distressed and worried) last season.

Like, these are the writers fans are telling people to trust, and you honestly wonder why a majority of us don’t? This isn’t even getting into half the gross and contradictory shit they’ve said since working on this show and yet it’s more than enough reason for me not to trust anything they say.

Shamelessly Underwhelming

So…Season 5. Huh.

Underwhelming.

I toyed with many different words to describe this seasonand since Garbage sounded a little too harsh, I went with underwhelming. They tried so hard to be interesting and invest us in these stories but I was bored. And since everything was pointless anyway (i.e. no follow through or consequences) there really wasn’t a reason to be invested in anything. Of course that didn’t stop me from stanning for Ian Gallagher all season, but hey, I wasn’t invested in anything else.

I said last night that I was trying to write this, but I literally could not be even remotely constructive with my criticism so I had to stop. This is my second attempt. We’ll see how it goes.

Spoilers for the finale under the cut. Trigger Warnings: Mentions of rape.

Shameless Season 5 Finale: Ian and Mickey

They really did it.

They broke up.

As the scene happened, I was hardly crying, I felt the need to, but no tears came. I thought it through and realised it’s because the break up was kind of mutual in some respects. Do I believe that it’s the end of them forever though? Most definitely not.

This is Ian and Mickey, as content and final as it seemed, nothing is ever final in this show. It could be my pathetic optimism but truly, they’ll probably get back together.

I see the reason for this ending as something to leave an open space for Mickey and Ian as characters, also as actors, since Noel is on his way to work on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.

So, as far as Season 6 goes, Mickey probably won’t be in it till the later episodes because of TMNT, or Ian will run back to him just like he did in season 1. Maybe he won’t come back until season 7, but that’s entirely up to Noel and how his schedule is doing (plus, he’s going to be getting married, who knows when, but that’s a big thing to deal with too).

It kind of felt right? Maybe it was just me but the feeling was like a fresh slate, it kind of felt wholesome to me? It wasn’t the best finale but I had that nostalgic feeling of season 1, I hope I’m correct but I think Season 6 is the season were the family work together again. I could be wrong, but that’s the sense I caught.

Maybe this was the writers way of saying “yeah, we fucked up, we need to fix it, let’s start over” and that feeling I got from it made me think maybe it’s not the end of Ian and Mickey, maybe they’ll come back together and finally find happiness.

Right now, honestly, was a shit time to be in a relationship. Ian probably thinks Mickey deserves better, and after seeing Monica with Walter, I think Ian realised he has to look after himself. Ian needs to find himself, as much as it’ll ache him and Mickey, Ian needs to find himself at his own pace and suffering with that and being in a relationship can really be a hard thing to deal with. He needs to find happiness within himself to be happy with someone else and the last thing he wants is to makes Mickey’s life worse than it already is.

“You can’t fix me, I’m not broken. I don’t need to be fixed, okay? I’m me!”

If anyone calls Ian selfish for saying that, you are wrong.

He is struggling with a lifelong condition and he needs to work on that. This is who he is now and he needs to take the time to himself to just breathe and get his shit together. The whole episode was spent with him thinking about what to do with himself and Mickey. He decided to come home instead of running away like Monica, he decided to work on it. Ian really needs time to himself, that’s why I don’t think Ian and Mickey are a closed book. This is just another chapter. That scene was intended for Ian to accept who he was and to work on it, not to be the end of him and Mickey forever.

If you want to stop watching the show and leave the fandom, that is perfectly okay and understandable, if the two ever get back together and you want to come back, that’s also up to you to decide. I understand why it was done and I didn’t start this show because of this pair, so I’ll keep watching.

For those who are choosing to leave, thank you for your time, thank you for the gifs, the text posts, edits and drawings. Thank you for everything and I’m always here with my arms wide open if you ever want to come back.

This was one hell of a rocky season, and it was awesome (despite the occasional fights) to be a part of something this great.

So thank you, and to those who are choosing to stick around, I’ll see you next season! x

“Buns has an amazing gift of expressing a character’s inner thoughts and emotions by putting them into words… it is very easy to connect with a story when you’ve experienced the same kind of heart-leaping joy or soul-crushing anguish. With her accessible writing style Buns… provides a refreshing take on Katniss and Peeta’s relationship.” -lovesbiggerthanpride

What is so unique or special about Everlark to you?

At this point I am so enamored and invested in them it is hard for me to think of anything that quite frankly isn’t special or unique about them. I guess as a lifelong avid reader and, well, romantic… the real question I have for myself is why they hit me so hard and took root so deeply- because very few characters in fiction have done this to me.

I suppose the universe itself compelled me and, like everyone else, you are just sucked in so quickly. I fell in love with this fragile relationship from the moment Katniss thought, “not him.” The tether they have to their past, the uncertainty of their future, and in the middle of it all you are left screaming at them that they love each other for three entire novels. And the characterizations are all so unique and in so many ways opposite to what is normal for your leading protagonists. I loved that.

I loved these books. I loved the political message, and I applaud Suzanne Collins for creating such a beautiful thought-provoking series. That being said, I am romance trash. Peeta Mellark as a male love interest is a breath of fresh air in his genuine goodness. He’s attractive and intelligent and charming and appealing and without an ounce of chauvinism. I adored that. It made me fall hard and want to fight for them through each book. They go through such an impossible story, and they are children. God, and they find their own happy ending after everything… and I am not certain I will ever be over it.

What inspired you to write Everlark fanfiction in the first place?

Probably a couple glasses of Chardonnay and stupidity. I was late to the fanfiction game. I literally did not know it existed. I stumbled upon a comment about it under a youtube video of the cast for the first movie. I was like what is this? That night I did not sleep. I just binged. I was running on an Everlark high for months.

In school I was always good in English but never set out to write anything for other people. So I started to try in secret, and one night I sat down and just drabbled some nonsense. I never shared it. I saved it and protected it like a preacher’s porn collection. Over time a few lovely people [on] tumblr encouraged me to write. At this point it was not Everlark. No, I was not ready for that because I was like a frothing, rabid fan for the Everlark writing base, and I loved the ship too much. I didn’t want to tarnish these two with my mediocrity and those who write it. I mean, have you realized how spoiled we are? Finally, over time I just couldn’t not try to write them. They were the reason I found tumblr, and for some reason people there wanted to read the things I thought up. So one night I probably prayed and maybe cast a spell or two and for good measure lit some candles before giving a round of PiP a go.

What’s your personal favorite of your own fics and why? What inspired it?

You are in so much trouble for this question. You can’t ask me these things! I am still and probably never will be thrilled with any of my stories. That being said, since I have been warned that I am required to answer this, I go with Landslide. For a couple reasons. First of all, it was the first time I contributed to a fanfiction charity with S2SL. I loved the idea of writing to make some kind of difference, even a small one. It is the longest story I had written up ‘til then, and, to answer the next part of your question, it was very loosely inspired by that hot guy I married and the year I broke his beautiful heart because I was scared and an idiot. So there are some little tidbits throughout that mirror some things we went through. (For the love of god do not read into the crazy smut… I mean we did and do just fine, but I write Everlark porn like they are Olympic champions of sexual triathlons. Which they are okay?)

What’s the greatest challenge for you to writing Everlark?

Words. LOL. No, the hardest part for me is plotting. I am not an organized person. I don’t outline, and I can never stick to a plan. I usually write in these huge four-hour writing segments where I finish a 7K one-shot in one go because if I have to come back [to it] I panic. This is why starting a WIP is such a bad idea for me. So… instead of coming up with well-thought-out plots I do dumb shit like sigh and stare into space thinking, “I want Peeta to be a lifeguard and come out of the ocean dripping wet….” Then I write around that and pretend to construct meaningful backstory and use the distraction of gratuitous Peeta topless scenes so readers never realize they are actually not reading anything of substance. I tie it all up with a smut bow and somehow no one notices. [Crosses fingers this formula carries on a little longer].

Buuuuuuuut I also sometimes struggles with Katniss being in character. Personality-wise I am much more a Peeta, so sometimes I worry her voice is lost- which, since I love her to the moon and back, stresses me out. [Throws out another shirtless Peeta scene to distract from Katniss being ooc].

When you’re pushing the limits of character or situation, what ineffable traits of Katniss and Peeta/Everlark do you keep intact to preserve their characters?

Man, with Peeta it a truckload of frivolous things like his beautiful eyes and hair and, god love him, those shoulders, am I right? I also to make him smell like a baked good. This is just how is must be, okay? But beyond those surface things I love Peeta to be charming, and warm, and, only with Katniss, a little uncertain. I like when he knows what to say and how to be there or how to be exactly what she needs even when Katniss doesn’t. Katniss I like a little more rough, but just on the edges, because inside she’s a marshmallow. I like her to be aware of Peeta whether she understands why or not or even wants it. Plus, I love to make her scowl. Because Peeta loves that scowl and her long black braid and jfc I love these two.

What’s your favorite Everlark trope and why?

BFF EVERLARK!!!!!

I screamed it you. (You are welcome). It is one of my fave tropes in all forms of fiction and life. In fact, if my husband had a female best friend I would probably ship them when she came to hang out with my family. I am shameless. Nothing is better to me than them having this beautiful history, but at some point something shifts or one of them has wanted something more and been angsting away for years. I want it all. Longing looks, brushing fingers, laughter turning to prolonged eye contact, platonic bed sharing, awkward inconvenient boners, and petty jealousy that shocks them. God, give it to me!!!!!

What is an Everlark fanfic that has stayed with you? Why?

Well, this is impossible, but looking at my previous answer I will go with one of my faves that follows that trope. As most of us did when I found Everlark fanfic, I started with strictly canon fics and one day got brave and did canon AU like a wild woman. It took months to brave my first AU, and I started small… I mean I didn’t want to go crazy. This was Everlark- you can’t just put them in any situation, right? WRONG! I kept going down the list of high-rated fics and would read this same description all the time about Peeta being deaf, and the idea of it, when I was so used to communication and language and his speaking being such a huge part of who he is, was about as alternate a universe as I could imagine. The best friend aspect finally just made me give in. I read With Eyes to Hear by the beautiful Amelia_Day in one day and cried like a baby and reread it the next day. I have probably read it forty times since.

What is your favorite Everlark headcanon or fanon?

Besides the insane, all-encompassing, life-altering sex life they have??? I loved that in canon Peeta was caught looking at her all the time. Because to catch him looking, although Katniss might not have realized it, meant that she was looking back. I like to believe they spend the rest of their lives looking at each other or catching the other staring. Just kind of in awe that this is their lives… that somehow they made it here. Katniss likes to watch him sleep. She likes to watch his chest rise and fall and feel so grateful that he’s breathing, that his heart still beats. She still loves his eyelashes and the way his hands move when he bakes and draws and cradles their children’s heads in his palms. Peeta loves watching her move…through the woods, across the floor of the nursery at night. He loves her scowls and her smiles and the way her hair comes out of her braid before bed. I just like to believe that with everything they went through they are always looking to make sure the other one is there…and with each look they fall in love with a little something else, fall in love a little more. Sigh. Yeah. Pretty much.

Emmy Rossum here...you may know me as Fiona Gallagher from Shameless. AMA! • /r/IAmA


  • In preparation for the show did you tall to any children from alcoholic households? Were there any recurring themes or stories that stuck with you and that you think of while acting? I ask because your acting is so “fall off a motorcycle at 60 mph” raw sometimes it makes me cry. And I’m a big burly dude.
  • “In preparation for the role, I did meet with a counselor, a therapist, who works with specifically children that have grown up with alcoholic parents. And it was really informative in terms of the roles that get adopted by children when they grow up in that kind of environment, like one child is a clown, one is the parent, one is the screw up… and how those roles can shift like musical chairs throughout the years. So for me, I played Fiona from the beginning as a parent, but her role started to shift in the 3rd and 4th season with her tendencies towards drugs & alcohol. And she became the screw up, and Lip became the parent in her absence. I find that dynamic, that shift, so fascinating.”

2016 Kylux Fic Recs! (long fics)

Hey, folks! I got a request to rec some of my favourite fics of this year. I must admit, I didn’t read as much fanfic towards the end of the year but there were some really good ones out there. This is only a small list of some of my favourites. I wanted to break it into two parts: muti-chap fics and one-shots (one-shot are HERE). They’re in the order of the time I bookmarked them, oldest to newest. And this doesn’t include fics I read on Tumblr, just ao3. Please remember this is just a personal list. Here we go:

(Note: These are all either rated explicit or mature)

Southern Comfort by ocktorok / @ocktorok  

Life is boring in Abbottsford, Georgia. It’s too hot outside and the people in town are weird and Hux would really just rather not be here, thank you, until a mysterious stranger appears, covered in blood and determined to shake things up.

Respect and admire my cheesy summary. It’s a Southern Gothic AU with Monster!Kylo, what more do you want?

The birth of monster!Kylo and the sogo au. In general, I absolutely adore their writing style and this fic really has that old fashioned, southern vibe. It’s definitely worth a read and so are the other one-shots from this au (most of them are really good smut).

Children, Wake Up by hollycomb / @hollyhark

Hux follows orders and loses his way.

So this is a series, not a fic and we all know it well. That is, of course, the decription to the first fic, Life Sentence, No cellmate. Holly has an absolutely breathtaking way of writing. I really enjoyed the more sombre vibe of Ceasefire and althought I haven’t caught up with Under the Ruins of a Walled City, it is an epic fic and beyond amazing. (WIP)

Tinder and Flint by thatviciousvixen / @that-vicious-vixen

Reeling from the defeat at Starkiller Base, Supreme Leader Snoke comes up with an idea to unite the First Order under a figurehead they can rally behind: Hux. Despite their obvious hatred Kylo is named his knight and protector and assigned to stay by his side and follow his orders.

Kylo Ren expects to hate being an acolyte of Emperor Brendol Hux the Second, ruler of the new Galactic Empire. He’s surprised to find otherwise.

This is probably my favourite Emperor Hux fic, written by the fabulously talented Alley. An enemies to lovers fic that I completely fell in love with. Hux and Kylo are snarky assholes ad ofc, fall stupidly in love.

The best crack treated seriously fic I’ve ever read, and the best Matt the Radar Technician fic I’ve read. Hux is so well characterised and the friendship between him and Phasma is snarky and perfect. And, of course, the smut is wonderful. (Do heed the dubcon tag)

Honeycomb by betts / @bettydays

“I know a guy.” Poe always knew a guy. He knew a lot of guys. He had a guy for everything.

“A guy,” Ben replied.

“Yep.”

“Who can do what?”

“Oh, you know, this and that. Got a lot of money, a little time. You know how it goes.”

Ben was beginning to feel like maybe he was the stoned one. “I really don’t.”

Poe leaned forward on his elbows, charming crooked grin lighting up his handsome features, the kind of smile that won over everybody who crossed his path. “You give him a little time, he’ll give you a little money.”

Otherwise known as the fandom’s greatest daddy kink fic. Betty is a freaking amazing author; I adore her work and this is no exception. Each character is so well translated into a modern setting and the power dynamic between Ben and Hux is addictive to read. (Do remember to heed the tags in this one.)

We're Having A Baby

Summary:

*This is a scene extension from the final scene in 10x19, where Callie and Arizona decide to have another baby. After their conversation, sexy times ensue but Calzona gets caught in the act. I took some liberties, so any interactions/conversations between characters are obviously not meant to hold up to continuity in future episodes. (If only I had a crystal ball so I could know what happens next! Or, like, some scandalous blackmail on one of the producers so they’d pony up the scripts.) Anyway, this fic is basically just plotless smut to help me get through this on-screen intimacy dry spell in Calzona’s relationship. Just something fun and sexy! (Hopefully, haha.)

Rating:

*Well, a lot more happens than a pitiful, mid-hug pat on the back, LET ME TELL YOU. (It’s MA.)

A/N:

*There are probably a couple of inaccuracies in here that I wouldn’t mind being corrected on if anyone has answers/solutions. (My fics may be mostly plotless, shameless smut, but they’ll be accurate smut, god dammit!) Some things I couldn’t confirm the answers to (a.k.a. was too lazy to look into beyond a simple google search) were: 1) Calzona’s car model. Audi? Yes? No? 2) I have no idea if it’s ever mentioned that Jo has a car, let alone a truck, so if she does have a car and the type is specified, please let me know! 3) The timeline logic of Calzona’s sexy time getting interrupted is probably off, so if anyone knows a way around that, I’d be happy to take ideas. Then again, I don’t feel too bad about having a shoddy timeline because Grey’s Anatomy has a more confusing/warped sense of time than any given episode of Doctor Who. (I assume. I’ve never actually seen Doctor Who, but… uninformed time travel show joke. Why not.)

*All the characters here do not belong to me. I don’t have any rights/credit/profit from them, and no infringement is intended.

I think that’s all. Sorry this was so long-winded. And, as always, thanks for reading! :D

here are sum more recommendations of shows/documentaries/movies on netflix to watch when you’re sick or feeling bad (it’s under construction and i’ll add more later but yea)

The Honeymoon : Part 7

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6


Let’s have sex? Had I hear it right? he wondered. But considering that you are now in the process of unbuttoning your jeans, maybe he had. In his life, he’d had his share of pushy, horny or gold-digging women but even they weren’t this shameless. What was her deal? If he were married or in a relationship, he might have thought that it was a setup or some kind of test his wife had concocted to reassure herself of his faithfulness. But what was this?

He watched you pull down your pants and sucked his breath in. With a body like that, there was no way you are underage so he doubted it was some kind of blackmail scheme. What was wrong with her? She was obviously depressed so had she just discovered that she had AIDS and was trying to seek revenge against the world by taking as many people with her? No matter what the true scenario was, he wanted no part of it.

You are reaching for your panties when he stepped back, grabbed the shirt that had been hanging over his chair and threw it at you. “Cover yourself up,” he ordered, looking away from you.

What the hell am I doing? You asked yourself. It was like a scene from a really bad porn flick and you couldn’t believe you’d actually stooped so low. But it will be all worth it in the end - you just had to push harder. You let his shirt fall to the ground then moved closer to him. “Don’t you find me attractive?” you purred. You licked your lips seductively and smiled at him making sure he could see the twinkle in your eye.

He looked from your full breasts to your flat stomach down to the thong that was the only piece of clothing you still had on. If only he’d been made of steel. In a different time and place, he wouldn’t have minded having those slim legs wrapped around him. But not today. Not like this. “No. I don’t find you attractive. Just put your clothes back on and leave.” He looked away from you again

“Really?” you smirked. “I think you do find me attractive,” you said, training your eyes on the rapidly increasing bulge in his pants. You took two steps closer and reached for the top of his pants. Before he could push your hands off, you are on your knees.


 

You struggled to keep the bile from rising up. You’d never been so disgusted with yourself. Men were easy creatures and it wasn’t difficult to get Jae Bum to change his mind but now that both of you were about to have sex, you wanted to throw up.

You didn’t even know what was wrong with him. Since you were strangers, why was he wasting time with all the foreplay? You’d been lying on the bed for about ten minutes and he was still trailing kisses all over your body. Couldn’t he tell that every time you felt his spit on your body, you wanted to hurl? You should have been turned on, you should have been excited to finally be able to have the fling you’d been dreaming off. After all, underneath those clothes, he did have an impressive body –and you wasn’t just talking about his abs– so why couldn’t I be more excited about this?

You already knew it was going to be the worst sexual experience of your life because even though they said that sex was half mental, your body wasn’t even complying with the other half. You wasn’t aroused, moist, wasn’t turned on in any way but regardless, you are still going to do it. You had to. Your pride had to.

He moved up and kissed your neck while caressing your thighs. Then he moved up even higher to kiss your mouth.

“Can you just get on with it?” you whispered. As soon as the words escaped your lips, a tear escaped her eye.


 

Crying? She is crying? Jae Bum rolled off you and onto the other half of the bed. “Why are you crying? Wasn’t this your idea?”

Panicked, you quickly wiped your cheek and climbed on top of him. “No. I’m fine. Where’s the condom? Let’s do this,” you said, your voice getting shakier with every passing word. You found the pack of condoms on the nightstand and took one. I am going to do this even if it will kill me.

Unwrapping condom was something that you could do in your sleep but for some reason, the more you tried to tear the condom wrapper open, the more your hand shook. Every time you caught hold of the corner, it would slip out of your hand. You even tried to tear it open with your teeth but with no luck. What kind of adhesive had they used on it, anyway?

Jae Bum felt an overwhelming sadness as he watched you struggling with the wrapper. He’d never seen anyone look so clumsy. Why was she acting like this? Was she an old virgin determined to finally lose her virginity? Is that what it was all about? He reached across and covered your hands with his. “Stop this, Alice.”

You looked up at him with teary eyes. “What do you mean? I’m almost there. I’ll soon open it.”

He gently pushed you off him. “Let’s forget it. We can do this another time.”

“No. Let’s do it now,” you said, not bothering to hide your desperation.

He moved his legs off the bed and sat on the edge. “No. How about another time?”

“Please.” You could barely see him as your eyes had become cloudy with moisture. “Please.”

He looked over at you and watched you collapse onto the bed in sobs.


 

“Gone?” you asked the lady, pointing at the empty lobby.

“Yes, Miss. They’ve already left for the day but if you’d like to go into town, I’ll gladly get a driver for you.”

You only understood the first sentence but wasn’t interested in what else the lady had to say. You thanked her and turned around. It only made sense that you’d miss the bus after all, the day had started off shitty. After waking up in a strange bed to find a slightly less strange man, sleeping next to you, you slowly remembered the happenings of the previous night and like a jet, flew back to your room.

After sleeping a bit longer, you woke up to discover that you’d missed breakfast and that room service wasn’t included in your package. You grabbed three apples from the fruit bowl at the lobby and walked towards the elevators.

Your stomach growled with hunger so you wiped one of the apples against your shorts then bit into it. Your mind was intent on traveling to what had happened the previous night but you are fighting it because you knew that if you really thought about it, it meant that you’d never again be able to look at yourself in the mirror.

You are still waiting for the elevator when you heard footsteps. You turned to look and your body stiffened when you saw who it was. Oh shit.

“You missed breakfast too?” Jae Bum asked.

“Hmm,” you said, not looking at him. Your body was on the verge of turning bright red and you hit the elevator call button repeatedly, hoping that would somehow make one arrive quicker.

In all his life, Jae Bum had never seen a woman fidget so much. At least, not one that he’d seen naked. Not that last night had been one of his shining moments. It wasn’t like he thought he was a super stud in bed but he’d never had any complaints. It was his policy to try to pleasure the woman as much as he could, while pleasuring himself. But with you, he’d never in his life been with someone so unresponsive yet so desperate. He’d perfected the skill in touching women in certain places that he was sure would make them moan but apparently, you was immune to his skills. It had almost been like trying to make love to a block of wood and it was such a turn off that he’d constant struggled to retain his hardness. But seeing that tear drop from your eye was like poking a balloon with a needle, he’d never deflated so quickly.

But yet, as he saw you wringing your hands in nervousness, he couldn’t help but feel pity for you. His brain was telling him to run as far away as possible yet his lips said, “This lift is a taking a long time to arrive, don’t you think?”

As you stood there, trying to ignore his presence, you’d been silently praying for the ground to swallow you up. But now he was talking to me? You took a deep breath and said, “Yes.”

“Maybe there’s something wrong with it.”

“Hmm.”

After a few more excruciatingly awkward seconds, the elevator finally arrived. Both of you walked in and hit the buttons for your respective floors and waited for the door to close.

“You missed today’s outing too?”

You nodded.

“Did you sleep well?” he asked just as the elevator doors shut.

Your heart sank the moment the lift started to move up. Not only was he still talking to you, he just had to refer to your previous night. More embarrassed than you’d ever imagined, you waited for a few beats then said, “About last night  I’m sorry. I don’t know–”

“Forget about,” he interrupted, smiling at you. He didn’t exactly want to spend time thinking about it, either. “What are you doing today?”

“Ehm, sorry?”

“Since you couldn’t go out with the group. Are you going into town?”

You shook your head and kept your eyes trained at the elevator doors.

“It looks like we are at my floor,” he said as the elevator halted to a stop. As soon as the doors parted open, he put his foot out to act as a barricade then turned to you. “Since we’ve been left alone, we can hang out together. Meet me in the lobby in thirty minutes and,” he said, looking at your feet, “change your shoes.”

You are still in shock as he walked out of the elevator and towards his room. What is his saying?


 

You held onto Jae Bum as he helped you up the last rock. You’d initially decided against meeting him but ten minutes after their scheduled time, curiosity got the best of you so you went to the lobby and found him waiting for you. You really didn’t know why he was still being nice to you but you chucked it up to him being just as lonely as you are and not wanting to be alone. Besides, why think about it so much? It was just a vacation and you’d be parting ways soon enough.

Over an hour later, you are on top of a mountain. Throughout your ride, he’d been friendly and personable and that, coupled with what had happened the previous night, you are sure he couldn’t possibly have any sexual interest in you, which was good because you are sweating and probably looked like a pig.

You wiped off some sweat with the back of your hand then turned to him. “What is this again?”

“You might have seen the sign when were driving here. It’s Arikok National park. I didn’t pick any of the tourist locations so we should be alone.”

He put down his backpack and sat on a smooth rock. Then you staggered forward and did the same. “If I’d known that you were taking me hiking, I’d have stayed in my room.”

He unzipped his backpack, pulled out two plastic bottles of apple juice and handed one to you. “It’s good exercise. I usually like to go hiking when I have a lot on my mind or I just need to think. Something about the serenity, crisp air, and coolness have a way of clearing your mind. ”

“I see.”

“I hope it works for you too,” he said, sending you a knowing look.

You took a swig of the now warm apple juice and stood up. You walked over to the grassy area and towards a steep edge. “What’s the name of the ocean?” you asked, pointing to a water body a few hundred feet below.

He stood up and walked up to you. “I don’t think it’s an ocean, I believe it’s a river.”

“Okay, what’s the name of the river?”

“It’s called Intotok. Local lore claims that hundreds of years ago, when a native girl called Intotok came to take her bath on the banks of the river, she met a lost sea god. She was very beautiful with her eyes, body, hair, you know how it goes.”

“Sure.”

“Anyway, before long, they fell in love and the sea god no longer had any interest in returning to his homeland. On the day he planned to propose to her, he waited and waited and waited for her to show up but she never did. It turned out that she’d been forced into a marriage with the village chief. The sea god, as you can imagine, was devastated. The story is that on very stormy nights, you can hear the wind whistling, "Intotok, Intotok,” as the sea god searches for his long lost love. In fact, sometimes, when the waves crash against the banks of the river, you can still hear him calling her name,“ he said dramatically.

"Really?”

He nodded. “Yeah.”

“The water crashes and makes a ‘tok-tok” sound? Not like a 'whoosh-whoosh’ sound?“

He thought about it. "You think Inwooshwoosh would sound more believable?”

“Yeah,” you said, watching as a wave crashed against the side of the rock.

He nodded. “Cool. I’ll use that one next time.”

You gave him a sidelong glance. “Next time? You made it up again?” You shook your head. “Are you like some kind of pathological liar?”

He immediately adopted an innocent look. “If I say no, will you believe me?”

For some reason, that made you burst out laughing.


She looks beautiful when she is laughing. 


He smiled.
