“…and it was then that Elrond first saw Celebrían, and loved her, though he said nothing of it.” - History of Galadriel and Celeborn.

(totally ridiculous and ooc I’m sure but just let me indulge myself in cheesy romantic subplots haha… I also have a Thing for nerdy, lovesick, lovingly-and-adorably-awkward-around-his-crush Elrond okay??)

Supposed to take place after this comic.

Also tumblr screws up the quality of this so click on each image to read it easier :’)

My favorite part of Philosopher’s Stone

Albus Dumbledore had gotten to his feet. He was beaming at the students, his arms opened wide, as if nothing could have pleased him more than to see them all there.

“Welcome,” he said. “Welcome to a new year at Hogwarts! Before we begin our banquet, I would like to say a few words. And here they are: Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Drarry is my OTP!

“Thank you!”

anonymous asked:

Ok quick question, where is Robert Jekyll from?

Quick answer: He’s from the 2015 TV series Jekyll & Hyde! It’s a 10 episode series, set in 1930s London and follows Robert Jekyll, who is the grandson of the original Dr. Henry Jekyll! The whole thing is like a really goofy superhero show but I absolutely loved it so much, I’m sad it didn’t get another season ;____;

when i’m dealing w snaladins i sometimes wonder what i’d do if my 17 year old kid told me they were dating someone in their mid twenties

lmao jk i don’t wonder bc i already know what i’d do, i’d find that bitch and beat them into the next millennium

@kurasuta Damn straight. NOW SEE HERE.

1. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
2. Is that really such a bad thing?
3. No one with hair that beautiful can be evil.

But on a serious note, I now feel like writing a real post about this. (Obviously skip if you didn’t come here feeling like reading a book about the topic ;) )

Basically, he was emotionally and mentally tailspinning and had been for a long time. Let’s rewind: It’s implied he was depressed and had no real will to live when he met Lacie. We don’t get details about his early life, but based off of what we do see, it’s fair to guess it was shit. The way I read it, he was absolutely suffering from depersonalization even before he met her (whether it was because of abuse/his shitty life or because he was “born that way” makes no difference to my interpretation of his mental state)- he didn’t know himself or his “will” and did what Lacie suggested simply because her presence was so powerful. He had nothing else. He didn’t have “himself”- he didn’t have personal desires he was aware of- so when he finally saw something different from what he’d seen until then, when someone suggested doing things he hadn’t even considered before, he wanted to have that experience back so that maybe he could feel something again. Additionally, being attacked and then saved by a stunningly beautiful girl dancing in blood with a power he’d never seen before surely connected him to real fear and awe for at least a moment, heightening the experience and burning it into his memory. He experienced something sincere because of it.

Lacie was Jack’s opposite- while he was too detached to know what he wanted (or at that point, even realize he didn’t know), Lacie was all will. She was a master of self-definition and decisiveness. I believe Jack first became aware of the hole in himself when he met her and saw how she viewed the world. She certainly didn’t cause his problems, but she exposed them. Meeting her must have been as wonderful as it was painful.

Unfortunately, Jack’s course of action afterward wasn’t truly what Lacie had recommended at all- he didn’t think for himself or fight for his own goals in the truest sense, he did exactly what she’d suggested on the surface because he didn’t know what else to do. Now knowing what he lacked, he became obsessed with finding definition, with ending his dissociation.

Even more unfortunately, prostituting himself for years and attempting to find “definition” through an external source just dug him so much deeper. While there’s nothing inherently degrading about sex work, imagine how traumatic it could be to someone that isn’t confident about it, how destabilizing it could’ve been for him to put on countless “masks” and acts in such a vulnerable, private context when he had such a weak grasp on his own sense of self to start with. He went against values he’d grown up with and probably hadn’t truly rejected- instead of figuring out his own beliefs, he just stopped submitting to the only ones he knew. He lost even more of his “definition” instead of finding it.

I imagine that he must have clung to the hope that he’d see Lacie again like a drowning man. “It’s alright if I lose myself because this will end with me seeing her again.” “It’s alright because it’s for her.” “This will all have been worth it because I’ll see her and finally know myself.”

His obsession became resentment. As much as the hope of seeing Lacie kept him afloat, Lacie was also the one that shone a light on what he lacked in the first place and the one that, in his mind, was to blame for putting him in that position by recommending it. Even his “lifeboat” hope became complicated and warped, and he recognized that. He was already vulnerable and he broke. Keep in mind that other characters could tell something was deeply wrong with him almost on sight. (Knowing that seemed to just rub salt in his wound.)

I believe he could have healed if, after that, he’d been able to live with Oswald and Lacie in peace for longer. There’s no way to argue that he didn’t also feel real affection for both of them (Source: Everything, but also specifically when he cried getting Lacie’s message and then again when Oswald died.), he was just disconnected from it and desperately needed help.

All this to say that he was hurting and lost and that when Lacie died, he lost the one thing he’d tied himself and his identity to. Almost everyone in Pandora Hearts is suicidal in some way. He was no exception. He didn’t know what he felt, he didn’t know what he wanted, and he didn’t know how to react in a productive way to loss. He went after the world because he was suicidal and he had no inner voice telling him “NO.” He had no internal structure holding him back and seemingly no sense of proportion. He didn’t know where to stop. He wanted to destroy what Lacie loved in revenge because he missed her and didn’t know how else to express profound misery (he couldn’t tell the difference between love and hate!), and he was just so lost.

So, yeah, trying to destroy the world and screwing everyone over is sort of messed up- I concede- but I can’t put much energy into blaming him when he just really needed a strong support network.

PSA: SONG MINHO ISN’T ACTUALLY THAT CHARMING

They like to wear skirts and makeup together sometimes (*´▽`*)

Another Spontaneous Perryshmirtz Fic from like two weeks ago about the Nemeses texting each other

WingSongHalo: I SAW A FANART IN WHICH PERRY IS WAITING FOR A GOOD-NIGHT TEXT FROM DOOF AND IT’S A REALLY CUTE IDEA I KIND OF WANT TO DO A STORY ABOUT IT
WingSongHalo: I just desperately want to see how Perry would talk. We know a little bit about how he “talks” because of that fabulous book (which I need to buy omg), but…

Stormy: OH GOSH RIGHT AND YES YOU TOTALLY NEED TO DO A STORY ALL THE STORIES FFFFF

WingSongHalo: cuz I mean obviously he can write–he’s signed for packages before (his signature was a neat cursive “Perry the Platypus” iirc) and the OWCA probably makes him do paperwork since he’s an agent and all

Stormy: hell yeah

WingSongHalo: And like, so, the OWCA gives him a device that’s just for text messages–he’s got his watch communicator for video messages and all–the text device is just good for low-profile communication
WingSongHalo: And the first couple weeks he has it it’s pretty standard–messages from Monogram, a few from Carl–but this one time he gets a message from a number he doesn’t recognize and it says
“I am not feeling up to being evil today. Do you mind if we reschedule? You are still welcome to come by for lunch, though I can’t promise it isn’t a trap.”

And obviously he knows who sent it because duh but he did NOT expect this. This is for professional communication only; he can’t be making lunch plans with it! He’s kind of annoyed so he says
“How did you get this number?”

“No need to be huffy, Perry the Platypus. It’s kind of weird seeing you respond, but also kind of refreshing! I’ve always wanted to ask you: What is your favorite color?”

“Answer the question, Heinz,” he texts back, and after a moment, “Green.”

“If you MUST know, I got it from OWCA’s website. Or, more specifically, Monobrow’s e-mails. Did you know his password is ‘groovymustache’? I can’t say I’m surprised, but it’s kind of disappointing, password-wise.”

He makes a mental note to inform Monogram to change his password. “Your password was 'Doofalicious’,” he reminds his nemesis pointedly.

“It’s nice that you remembered, Perry the Platypus.” Perry rolls his eyes.

“It’s memorable for being both a non-word and a disturbing concept,” he replies snarkily.

“Ha! I always knew you would have a good sense of humor, if a little hurtful.”

“It is my job to hurt you,” he texts back, and then, on a whim, “In the right ways. With cartoonish physical violence.”

There’s no response for a moment and he wonders if he’s said too much. “Seems like you remember more than I thought you did,” the answer finally comes.

He smiles. How could he forget appearing on a talk show to discuss their “break-up”? “I remember everything,” he admits.

“Me too.”

Perry doesn’t really know what to text back, or if he even should. This is in danger of becoming too…emotional, he decides. That’s an adequate word. 'Squishy’ or 'soppy’ would also be appropriate.

His device buzzes. “So I’ll see you at 1 for lunch?” the screen reads.

He doesn’t think very long before answering. “It better be worth the
trap I know is waiting for me.”
