kevin is a jerk

still can’t get over the first words kevin says to neil when they meet in millport.

neil: “i’m not good enough to play on the same court as a champion.”

kevin, creepin up from the shadows: “true, but irrelevant.”

like,, what a savage. and he wasn’t even saying it to be an asshole, he was just stating a fact. no neil, you aren’t good enough to play on the same court as me. that is absolutely accurate. lovely observation. gold star for josten.

It’s Kevin time *gets hit in the face with a chair*

Book of Mormon Fanfiction Recommendations (Mostly McPriceley)

 These are my favorite Book of Mormon fanfictions. These are mostly McPriceley because most more than half of the fanfictions that the Book of Mormon archive has is McPriceley. This is a much bigger list than my other one. Extras at the end and if I find more in the future, check the notes.

Bold and italicized are my favorites.

I do not own any of these.

A/N: This fic was originally for Stark’s Tower Movie Challenge ( @hunters-from-stark-tower ). I hoped to have another part or two finished by the deadline, but life happens. :) I’ve based this fic on the movie/book “The Lucky One”. I’m really enjoying fleshing out this story and putting my own spin on it! I hope you agree. Please let me know your thoughts!

You heard the stable doors sliding shut, breaking you from your reverie. James closed the padlock around the chain and handed the keys to you.

“Thank you,” you responded, throat still a little thick with emotion.

“He’ll be okay,” James assured you. “Caleb. You’re doing right by him, I don’t doubt that.”

“I appreciate that. Have a good night, James,” you said with a sniffle. 

A generous smile touched his lips, this time even reaching his stunning blue eyes.  

“Good night, Y/N,” he echoed before walking away.

_______________

The rest of the week, James continued to be the perfect employee. He came early to start any repair projects he saw, fed the horses, mucked out the stalls, hauled bales of hay, and did all of it without complaint. Most days you had to remind him to take a lunch break and when to stop at the end of the day. You wondered if he actually even had an off switch. Around noon, when reminded, he would disappear for that hour for the first few days, but by the end of the week he was bringing a lunch of his own and would spend time with the horses. You could tell he was more comfortable around them and that fact made you oddly happy.

One evening after work was done for the day and James had gone home, you were sitting on your porch with your mother beside you. Caleb was laying on a blanket with his sketchbook, perfectly content. As the sun set and darkness rose slowly, you saw a figure walk past on the main road. It was James walking back from town with what looked like at least 5 grocery bags in his left hand and 3 or 4 planks of wood over his right shoulder. Quite the load to carry over such a long distance, although come to think of it, you weren’t sure where he was staying since there wasn’t much past your stables for miles.

Curiosity got the better of you so the next day, after discussing the training and feeding schedule, you breeched the subject.

fakepockets  asked:

about lars- what makes it worse is that its implied pretty heavily that lars is trans, ex his mom called him laramie n looks ashamed it seemed way more of a mistake than if it just happened to be his full name. and for that reason itd make sense for him to be cross at his parents but Why make the nonwhite implied trans char a jerk even after learning??

YES there’s a bunch of evidence for how lars is trans, and the laramie one was a pretty big tipping point imo. so why did lars of all characters have to be the jerk who never learns? doesn’t kevin already have that spot anyhow? or do all the nonwhite guys on the show just have to be jerks for no apparent reason? 

basically just even more reasons on how the new lars was pointless in doing anything other than showing off another power of steven’s, further vilifying lars even though he has a great amount of potential as nonwhite and trans representation, and reverting back to that infamous status quo once more.

Although the characters in the show often drive illegally (underage/without a license) as well as erratically due to magic adventures, getting revenge against jerks named Kevin or chasing pink haired babes on motorcycles, I appreciate the message of always wearing your seat belt. 


Sour cream: There is nothing lame about seatbelt safety.

Riverdale Episode 8 “Oh God Now I Feel Bad For Alice Cooper”
  • Okay the amount of Beronica in this episode is prime
  • LOOK AT HOW THEY JOIN TOGETHER
  • Lmao, Veronica labeling Bughead and making a joke, is basically just her defense mechanism so that there is a label on them. As if you are the least bothered one, oh honey
  • And the way she pointed at herself when Alice asked for her. She looked terrified lol
  • Also Bughead were cute, idk I’ll always love beronica the most, but this show makes me ship everything
  • I know that I’m supposed to care about Archie’s dad, and I do. But Archie really pissed me off this episode. Like going after a gang really?
  • Also the serpents working on the construction job is a recipe for disaster
  • I don’t think Veronica’s dad sent those thugs because of Hermione’s romance. I think it’s because she forged Ronnie’s signature, and THEN had a romance.
  • “I stopped listening after the words ‘construction’ and site,’” SAME RONNIE
  • Um those serpents didn’t kill Jason, but something must have happened. Like maybe they are the reason Jason’s whole fake-your-own death thing went sideways?
  • DON’T YOU DARE HURT KEVIN, YOU JERKS. He has been great this whole way through, and I love him, so STAY AWAY!!!
  • Man I hope that Jaquan gets feelings and chooses Kevin. Like right in front of the sheriff and the serpents
  • Okay but the baby shower drama was just SO good
  • Alice finally putting down her sword and going, only to band with Polly after her fight with the Blossom’s
  • AND THEN WE FIND OUT ABOUT THE APPOINTMENT!!!! So it was never Alice, it was her dick of a husband.
  • Plus he did the same thing to her when she was Polly’s age, which means that all of this is WAY more personal than we all thought.
  • “Get. Out.” Honestly shivers during that scene, the way she was crying at the same time was amazing.
  • And then Polly chooses the Blossom’s like an idiot! I get that they needed to do that for drama and because she cares for the baby, but seriously?! That house is out of a freaking horror movie!
  • “Sorry mom, I tried,” that whole last scene was my favorite of the episode (yes even more than all the beronica looks) I mean the way Alice looked so betrayed, and she just fell into Betty’s arms. She has never felt more human, and I love that they’re making the audience question everything that they know about characters.
  • Probably my favorite episode so far, because even the storyline I didn’t really care about was awesome.
  • I think next week we get the beronica moment in the bathroom? (I could be wrong) and I’m so excited because Ronnie has been so strong all the way through, and I want to see her be comforted if that makes sense lol.
  • See ya next week!

thelightwithinthedark  asked:

Have you seen the meme of how Steven reacted to characters such as Lapis, Peridot, Bismuth, Eyeball, The Diamonds, and Kevin? If so, could you help us explain why Steven feels sympathy to everyone except Kevin? I feel like this issue that people have towards Steven should needed to be explained.

hmm… this reminds me of an interesting talk i had with @radioactivesupersonic about how we don’t need to see an overly sympathetic side to every human, as we don’t prescribe the same genre of punishment as with gems. 

nobody expects kevin to be murdered in cold blood at the end of this, even if he is a jerk who crosses people’s boundaries. when the focus is on humans, we expect that nobody is treated as a straight up supervillain, and we treat them accordingly. we also don’t assume anything about humanity as a whole because we see kevin be a jerk. there’s no stripping of inherent humanity, where we call upon someone’s death or dehumanize their entire species. he is humiliated, but nothing worse happens, as he’s not a threat. there’s a levity to the whole situation where there’s a distinction between presenting a Jerk and presenting an Alien.

and remember, the show is from steven’s perspective - he is not going to know every human equally well. we see kevin a bit flustered when he doesn’t get the attention he craves, but at the end of the day, he’s not someone steven is obligated to “get to know”. he is not involved in the major conflict, and he will not suffer some terrible fate for what he did. stevonnie is allowed to just leave. it does not mean that kevin “can’t be saved” - in fact, for once not getting attention out of taunting / harassing people could help him grow out of it.

it’s a lot more important to redeem gems. they are superpowered. if they cannot be talked to or pacified… they will be a threat. if steven can’t communicate with them or help them in some way, it becomes a “good vs evil” conflict where some people really can’t be saved. where the only real choice is to subdue them. it strips them of autonomy, potential and rose’s promise - that each living thing has its own unique experience, and it all matters. 

First Impressions

You pushed past a gaggle of interns, who were scrambling over a high profile case, as you made your way to the DA’s office. It was your first day and you were late. It was making you feel irritable because it wasn’t the first impression you had planned to make. As you stood in front of your dresser this morning, pulling on your favorite outfit and brushing back your hair, you day-dreamed about what your first day at your new job as a paralegal in Manhattan’s District Attorney’s office would be like. You wanted to be a lawyer and this was your way into law school.

Things had started out so well that morning, you’d left your studio apartment in Brooklyn Heights with ample time to walk to work across the Brooklyn Bridge. You grabbed a coffee from a cart outside your apartment.

“Morning! Here is your coffee. Might I say, you look radiant today. Ready for you first day at work?”

You’d become fast friends with the vendor and he now knew your order, often having it ready for you before you’d even had a chance to open your mouth.

“Thank you, Kapil! I’m going to need this.” You smiled at him warmly before setting off towards the Bridge, feeling thankful that your journey to work provided such a wonderful view.

Halfway across the bridge, your sense of wonder had been put to the test. Your coffee had been knocked out of your hands, your heel had gotten caught in the gaps in the bridge and you’d needed the help of a kind stranger to free yourself. To top things off, it has suddenly started to rain, not a lot, but enough to ruin your immaculately put together persona for a stunning first impression.

Running uncomfortably late, you hurried through the hallways of Hogan Place, reaching the elevator doors as they began to close. No! You absolutely did not have the patience to withstand another delay to get to your meeting, so you did the only thing a sane person would do, you pushed your hand into the gap of the closing doors.
