2. Kissing // Nurseydex

« {Part 2 of my Valentine’s collection.} »

a/n: this is loosely inspired by that scene from the webcomic Always Raining Here because i read the whole thing a couple of nights ago and let me tell you, there were feelings. enjoy!

“Eat shit, Nurse,” Dex said, taking another swig of his beer. “I told you that you didn’t stand a chance.”

“No fair, man. I totally would have won if you hadn’t blue-shelled me there at the end,” Nursey grumbled. He set down the Wii remote and got to his feet, trying to figure out how drunk he was. No dizziness or major balance fuckery, it seemed, but his head definitely felt kinda fuzzy. Now was probably a good time to start chugging some water; he still had homework to do later. He went to fish his water bottle out of his backpack.

“I only blue-shelled you because you blue-shelled me the last lap,” Dex said. “I won that fair and square.”

“Psh. If I were sober—”

“Dude, you only had three shots. You’re 6’2”. You’re fine.”

“Yeah, but you only had, like, a beer and a half, so between the two of us, I’m definitely the more impaired one here.”

Dex rolled his eyes. “Just admit I won. Stop being such a sore loser.”

“Well maybe you’re a sore winner.”

“I know you’re an English major, but ‘sore winner’ is not a thing.”

Nursey shook his head in mock outrage. “You come into my house—”

“Your house? This is my dorm room, Nurse,” Dex laughed. “You’re in my dorm room, playing on my Wii, drinking my alcohol.”

“…Touché,” Nursey admitted, returning to his spot next to Dex on Dex’s couch. He was probably sitting a little closer to Dex than was strictly necessary. He could try to blame the shots for that, but like Dex said, he was a 200-pound hockey player. Three shots of Fireball spaced out over the last hour really wasn’t much for someone his size. If he hadn’t been a city boy with no driver’s license, he could probably still legally drive.

The real problem, Nursey thought as he glanced at Dex out of the corner of his eye, wasn’t the alcohol—it was his stupid crush on his attractive yet probably tragically straight teammate. But that wasn’t really something he liked to dwell on.

i've been puzzled by Critical Role for such a long time like i know it's a bunch of people playing D&D but how does it WORK??? and how can you binge it?? i checked an episode at random and it wAS 4 HOURS LONG HOW ???

Oh man, I honestly had these same exact questions/concerns before I started watching. It literally took me 8 months to finally decide to give the show a try and I just cannot express how glad I am I did. It seems so massive and overwhelming, but I’m gonna legit answer these questions and only hijack your ask to gush about the show a little to tempt you in

how does it WORK???
I knew veryyyy little about the mechanics of D&D going in. I’d never played any tabletop RPG (though I’d been interested in trying one for a long time), and pretty much my understanding was the really general ‘it’s whatever you can imagine/you do whatever you want to do and you roll dice to see if you’re successful’ etc., and the Community episodes where they play D&D. I was not quite sure how this was going to logistically be something you watch long term (as a non-participant) nor if I was going to be interested in/connect with characters that I can’t really seeI’m a pretty visual person. The idea of D&D made sense to me logically before I watched Critical Role, but I didn’t really get it until I started watching. So, tbh the best way to understand how it works is to give it a shot. (If you’re like me you won’t understand everything immediately—you pick it up as you go, and what you don’t understand of the mechanics really doesn’t matter because you can still understand the story they’re telling.)

Logistically speaking, everyone is visible on screen at the same time: 7-8 players on one half of the screen, and the Dungeon Master (DM), Matt, on the other side. Matt basically describes where the characters are (physically and narratively), and presents them with a catalyst (e.g., a character asking them for help, a villain attacking, etc.) that starts the action and the players decide how to respond. Really, the three core aspects in my opinion are 1) collaborative storytelling, 2) improvisational theatre, and 3) logic puzzles.

and how can you binge it?? 
Oh man. I mean this literally: I was watching/listening to Critical Role every single chance I got. I devoured it. Minimum of three episodes a day, and forcing myself to go to sleep and leave it. There are a lot of reasons I could binge it:

  • The storytelling. It’s so damn good. One of the most narratively rewarding stories I’ve watched or read in years. The world-building is fantastic and has no loose ends (while feeling MASSIVE and open and real). The plot is interesting, well-planned, and character-driven; everything feels meaningful in one way or another. The NPCs Matt introduces are all rich and compelling and unique. And—something I value immensely in story that I rarely get—there are consequences. Honest-to-god consequences for everything, and it always feels appropriate for the action, and well-timed (things don’t always bite you immediately! But also sometimes they do!). 
  • The players. They make such ridiculous, amazing choices that keep the story unpredictable but realistic. All of them have stellar comedic timing, but can also make me cry at the drop of a hat. They care so deeply about the characters and invest everything into the game/their interactions, and it just feels rewarding to invest my time in them and their world. Not a single issue connecting to the characters—they sell them 100%, but they do feel separate from the actors in a good way. 
  • Found family. The chemistry of this group is amazing—it’s a group of real life best friends and it feels like it, constantly—and it comes through in both the players’ relationships and the characters’. It’s just fun, and warm, and comforting to see people (real and fictional) who care as much about each other as these guys do. It’s just a good time. I see my friends in them, and I see friends I would like to have. 
  • You can have it on in the background. Logistically speaking, this is how you can binge it. While it can be something you sit and watch—trust me—it’s also essentially a filmed podcast, so you have have it in the background, or listen to it without video like I did while I was doing my dumb data entry job. (Bless my boss for letting me listen to stuff.) And, as much as the completist in me hates to say this, it’s likely you’ll tune out occasionally; the long fights can become number-crunching heavy/repetitive, and they do have some circuitous conversations when they’re planning what to do. 
  • You’ll wanna go into the tag. If you don’t care about spoilers this won’t mean as much to you, but I was dying to dip into tumblr to find fanart and headcanons and gifs and stuff, but I didn’t want to spoil myself. So there was that kind of urgent push for me to catch up AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE!!! so I could go looking. Plus, because there is a new episode every single week, there’s none of that pesky urge to put off watching something until a hiatus, you know?

i checked an episode at random and it wAS 4 HOURS LONG HOW ???
And sometimes more than that! They do SO MUCH STUFF each week (plot and character development and fighting and relationship progression and they don’t rush ANYTHING), they have to make so many decisions, and they just burn through those 3+ hours. (And they usually end up stepping in it somehow and having to make a detour to clean up their own mess, lbr.) Honestly, these episodes look fucking long, and they are, really. But the time stamps are a bit off at a quick glance; about the first half of the series has inflated run times—fans started sending in gifts they would open at the end, they did Q&As, they had subscriber milestone awards, etc.—so some of that is skip-able. It’s fun, but definitely stuff you can go back and watch once you’re caught up and out of content. There are also a few one-shot episodes here and there that you can also skip until you catch up. (Definitely worth watching though, later!)

So, it is a little less than it looks like. But truthfully, it just goes by really fast. You get sucked in. The action goes fast. You’re dying to see what happens next. The biggest issue I had with this series was starting it, so honestly for anyone interested in this series I recommend just watching the first episode. Don’t worry about reading up on what happened before they started streaming the show, don’t worry about knowing who the characters are, or what it’s going to look like. It won’t make full sense until you just dive in. (That being said, if you want a reference theargentumlupine’s primer is fantastic and was very comforting to have going in.) It seems unthinkable when you’re looking at 2384975987295 hours of canon, but as early as episode ~40 I started worrying about being out of episodes  ❤

Everyone Wears Crop Tops, A Lot Of Feelings

  • noah enlists blue’s help to make cute crop tops for everyone as a gift (lbr he just wants everyone to see everyone eles in crop tops). gansey offers to help but blue refuses because “he’ll end up making them polo shirts somehow”
  • so. noah gives everyone their shirts and tells them to wear them to their next cabeswater outing. he plans a picnic. they’re all sitting on the ground in cabeswater, just actually hanging out for once, and they’re all losing it.
  • blue’s shirt is one of those crop tops with strips of fabric (like fringe?) at the bottom and says, in block letters right across the front, “i hate boys.” “not me, right?” gansey asks. he’s sitting next to her, and blue smacks his leg. “no, it’s mostly referring to ronan.” ronan flips her off, but they’re both grinning.
  • gansey doesn’t hear any of the conversation after blue smacks him. when she moves, the fringe on her shirt swishes and he can see more of her stomach. its more enticing than orla and her orange bikini. he is Undone. the barest glimpse of blue’s stomach is enough to basically incapacitate him. 
  • blue smacks his leg again when she sees him staring, but she’s secretly pleased.besides, she’s been staring, too. not only is gansey wearing a normal, non-polo shirt that hangs just right on his collar bones, it’s a crop top.  she and noah decorated gansey’s with the words “glendower is my boyfriend” and it rides up high on his stomach. which is. toned. he was on the crew team, really, blue should have realized what that meant, but the polos don’t exactly show off what he looks like.
  • both of them are thinking of things they could do besides kiss.
  • ronan can’t remember why he let himself be talked into this. how he ended up in a black crop top emblazoned with “let’s get this straight – i’m not” in rainbow colors. he’s pretty sure it had something to do with noah’s enthusiastic presentation of the idea. noah is smiling at him now, and ronan mouths “i’m going to throw you out the window again.” he can’t remember why he agreed to this. sure, seeing gansey in his crop top didn’t hurt, but gansey’s not even here to admire anymore, he and blue have wandered off somewhere together. 
  • looking back, he’s pretty sure noah got him into this by saying something about adam. adam in a crop top. but adam’s not even here, he had to work. 
  • and then, adam is there, grinning because he finished work early. he looks like he’s run straight from work. he’s breathless, and there’s sweat running down his stomach and ronan wants to punch a tree. 
  • listen. l i s t e n. adam parrish is the most beautiful person in probably the whole world. he has really nice muscles (boy works three jobs), not that ronan is looking at them or anything, and his coca cola crop top (come on guys it was one time) exposes his stomach in amazing ways. when he put on that crop top on the way over from work, all of henrietta felt a disturbance. blue and gansey, wherever they were in the forest, felt a disturbance. noah died again. ronan thinks he might have died because obviously this is what heaven is. 
  • “hey” says adam, and he smiles self-consciously. “where are blue and gansey?” he’s looking at noah, because ronan is sort of in the shadows. noah just winks at him, so adam turns to ronan.
  • “lynch, do you know where they…” he trails off in the middle of his sentence because ronan is staring right at him and he is looking at ronan and his question doesn’t really seem that important anymore because the tattoo (adam: baby bi bi bi) 
  • its not like he hasn’t seen ronan’s tattoo before. he has. but this seems more intimate for some reason. maybe because they’re in cabeswater and they are the magician and the greywaren, maybe that makes something different. maybe its the crop top showing off ronan’s tattoo and blatantly advertising his non-straightness. whatever it is, adam stares. eventually he sits down next to ronan, so close their shoulders are touching.
  • noah is having an amazing day. his friends are happy, and attractive. he leans against a tree, fiddling with the edges of his crop top.
  • blue made his by herself. she wouldn’t let him see until she was done. it says: remembered.

Omg I'm in love w/ Readerxgaston❤Could you do one where gaston gets into a fight and he and his opponent agree to a truce but then the opponent suddenly turns back and shoots an arrow and gaston. But the reader jumps in front of gaston and pushes him out of the way taking the hit herself saving his life. Gaston is furious that someone would hurt the reader and terrified she won't wake up and feels guilty cos he feels he should be protecting her. She wakes up, he confesses his feelings. Thanks! X

Pairing: Gaston x Reader
Fandom: Disney / Beauty and the Beast (2017)
Warnings: mentions of blood

A/N: gaaah, thank you for liking the gaston stories my love, I hope you’re happy with what I wrote for your request as well!

ALSO VERY IMPORTANT!!! My best friend decided to beta read my stories because she’s awesome and a talented beta reader so if any of you were annoyed by my grammar mistakes (because lbr, wtf is grammar) fear no more, my bestie will do her best to find all the mistakes I made <33

                                                          *****

They’ve been at it for at least two hours now, fighting back and forth. And it didn’t look like they’d stop anytime soon.

The villagers had gathered around them, so the two of them were standing in a circle, surrounded by so many prying eyes.

You just wanted it to stop. You didn’t want anything to happen to Gaston, even though you knew that he could take care of himself.

“Come to an end, for god’s sake. We all have things to do!” one of the villagers yelled.

You rolled your eyes. No one forced them to watch, after all.

Suddenly, Gaston’s opponent put the sword back in his sheath and nodded.

“I think he’s right. Truce? At least for today?” he held out his hand for Gaston to take.

He hated leaving fights unfinished, but the best strategy right now was to retreat and end the battle another day, so the two of them shook hands and Gaston turned around, same as his opponent, both of them walking in different directions.

Back to back.

While Gaston tried to make his way through the barricade of the villagers, his opponent suddenly turned around again, with an evil smile on his lips that made you shudder.

Everything that happened next felt like a blur.

bls @pitviperofdoom got an ask talking about shouto and izuku not being able to date and i wrote it……


“You’re muttering is cute”, Shouto scribbled down. He shot a look over to Izuku who was studying across the room, trying to cram as much things as he could into his notebook about Mountain Lady. She had come to talk to the class with Kamui Woods about being young pro heros.

Shouto waited until everybody’s heads were turned away from him before he whipped the note across the room. It slide along the table and stabbed into Izuku’s head. Shouto hastily looked away to act like he hadn’t done it, looking back down at his book he had been reading.

It was a little bit later when he felt a piece of paper being dropped into the back of his shirt as Izuku passed by to go to his dorm, most likely read up on the hero news of the day. Shouto tried to hide him fishing out the note from his shirt but it had gotten caught in his binder.

“Its stuck in my binder”, Shouto wrote out on another sheet. He put the piece of paper into his book for later. Izuku had already left so there was no hope of him discretely getting it.

He read for a bit, listening to everything around him. The dorm had quickly become a home for all of them so the comfort it provided made some of the people way too open. Mineta was lounging on the floor lamenting the fact that he was hungry, loudly, much to everyone’s dismay. Bakugou was yelling trivia at Kirishima as they played what seemed to be like Jeopardy with Tsuyu and Ochako. It was hero related so they were most likely studying. Momo and a few others looked on, providing support to the teams of their choice.

It had started getting late though and he could feel his eyes starting to itch. He got up and carefully stepped out of the common room. He could still hear the yells from Bakugou and Ochako as the two got into the game of Jeopardy more and more. Iida wasn’t there to quiet them as he had retired to his room earlier to study but Shouto couldn’t see him staying in his own room for long as the two voices carried.

Shouto made it to Izuku’s door before he even noticed it. He bent to slide the note underneath his door and keep going but he had barely gotten two steps down the hall before the door was opened.

“Todoroki”, Izuku said. “Can you…”

Izuku trailed off hesitantly as he crossed his arms over his chest firmly. Shouto stopped and stepped back to the door.

“Do you want me to come in?”

Izuku nodded and the colour in his cheeks started to rise. “Y-You don’t have to, it’s okay. You look pretty tired you should just go straight to your own bed. No need to answer my-”

He didn’t finish as Shouto nudged him in with a soft touch to his waist. They both stepped inside and Izuku hurried over to his desk to gather his notebook up and shut off his computer monitor. Shouto knew this routine. They had taken to sitting on Izuku’s bed a lot before they went to sleep. There wasn’t much of a rule against anybody dating but the stigma that was still present in Japan for any kind of LGBT issues was hard to get around. It didn’t help both the boys were transgender. It had been hard enough for the two of them to fly under the radar and act like they weren’t trans. They didn’t want to push the envelope any farther all things considered.

The two hadn’t actually confessed to each other. It had just sort of happened when one day they kissed each other good bye. There was a scary moment where the two just stared at the other like a scared rabbit before Izuku smiled, pecked Shouto on the nose, and said, “I guess that makes us a couple now, huh?”

It was meant more as a joke but Shouto had shyly asked, “Would you like that?”

Izuku hadn’t been happier to think that a small joke gave him a boyfriend.

The two were an odd couple as they couldn’t be outwardly affectionate out of their own fear. So they took it slowly. They left the affection the two wanted to give the other to when they were both alone. But in public, they had taken to silly little notes they would hand the other, saying something cute or a comment on what had happened. It had soon moved on from that though where they would drop little gifts of doodles to make the other laugh, dumb sayings they had thought of for no reason, you name it.

It was when the two of them sat on one of their beds that they would talk about their day and how they were and just everything they could think of. Sometimes they would fall asleep together and the scramble to try and hide that they had slept together always made them nervous for the rest of the day.

At least tonight was a weekend. It was Friday so it wouldn’t matter if they ended up falling asleep together. It was most likely going to happen as they ended up talking later than they meant to a lot and trying to sneak past Iida’s rom automatically meant that they’d be in trouble. At the slightest creak, Iida was moving, listening in the hallway for any kind of talking. Mineta liked to sneak down the hall a lot and as Class Rep, Iida took it upon himself to drop kick mineta back to his dorm room whenever it happened. There was no other path to the girl’s dorms unless you walked past Iida’s room so Mineta got discouraged after the third time of trying.

Shouto wasn’t going to be able to sit through the continuous questions Iida would throw at him if he tried to sneak back and got caught. He would be accused of walking back from going to the girl’s dorms most likely and considering how gay he was, he almost took it as an insult.

It was almost a relief when Izuku was starting to rub at his eye, blinking back his own exhaustion in an attempt to stay awake. They had lapsed into comfortable silence as they looked at their phones. Shouto liked the fact they didn’t always have to talk. But he never wanted to be the one that stopped the conversation to go back to his dorm or make Izuku leave.

“I’m sorry”, Izuku said around a yawn. “It’s almost midnight, I can’t believe we were talking for so long!”

Shouto nodded, letting his own exhaustion show as he yawned as well. Izuku prodded Shouto into a standing position and they both went into the small bathroom off to the side of the main room. The both of them had an extra toothbrush under their sink for when the other stayed in their room. It had been Izuku that had done it as one of the nice little gestures.

They both hurriedly got ready for bed. They didn’t want the sleepiness to go away and leave them wide awake for an hour. They both needed to take their binders off so they took turns in the little bathroom. Izuku lent Shouto a bra and a shirt.

As Shouto took his binder off, the note fluttered to the floor. He looked at it curiously.

‘Your entire being is cute’, the note said.

Shouto felt his face heat up immediately and his ears burn. Izuku was the one that could complement easier but it never was easier to digest as Shouto was never complimented. He shuffled his way out with the note clutched in his hand.

Izuku looked up, his eyebrows furrowing in worry at the look Shouto had. He saw the note a second later and he laughed. Izuku leaned up from his spot on the bed. He wrapped his arms around Shouto’s neck and gave him a soft kiss.

“You’re sweet”, Shouto murmured against Izuku’s mouth. He felt Izuku’s smile and breath as he laughed and pulled Shouto down into the bed.

Shouto relaxing into the covers immediately. The scent of Izuku lulled him as he had become a sense of comfort, not having to be wary and cautious of everything. He felt Izuku slip in beside him, rolling onto his side and burying his face into the pillow. Shouto smushed his face into Izuku’s chest, tangling his hands around the bed spread and in Izuku’s shirt.

He felt a soft kiss to his forehead and Shouto moved so he could see Izuku, blinking almost owlishly up at him.

“A little gift before bed”, Izuku said. He gave another peck to Shouto’s nose before he laid his head back down, pulling Shouto back to his chest.

Dokyeom (svt) Soulmate!au

-          So this boy loves to sing

-          He sings out loud a lot

-          He sings while he does chores, or while he’s doing schoolwork or music writing work

-          He sings while he eats breakfast in the morning and second desert at eleven at night

-          But he also sings in his head for only himself to hear

-          And lately, he’s been noticing that sometimes when he does that, there’s this really sweet voice that joins in inside his head

-          It startled him at first, but it’s so pretty that he can’t help but sing along, and it hums so many of his favorite songs too.

-          And then he started noticing that the voice would start in his head even without him, and sometimes he started joining in and doing the harmony

-          He’d even come up with new melodies with the voice

-          What’s more, he noticed that the voice, while it was usually pretty vague, got significantly stronger and more distinct most of the mornings that he went to this one coffee shop for a morning caffeine boost

-          Sometimes it would fade again as he left, and sometimes it would start to fade while he was still there, he couldn’t figure it out

-          Then one day, he was in line to get his coffee and singing a lovely ballad with the mystery voice

-          And suddenly he heard you, a girl about his age who was waiting for her drink as well, start humming very quietly to herself right along with the voice that was in his head singing the harmony with him. And the voice was literally exactly the same, like the only reason he could tell that it was two separate voices was because when you started, he could suddenly hear it with his ears as well, not just his brain

-          He stopped singing in his head for a moment just because he was startled, and you stopped humming as well, which only added to his disbelief

-          So he started humming again, and soon enough your voice picked up in his head again, but not out loud. So he took a leap, and started humming out loud.

-          You picked you head up turned around to look at him all wide eyed because what on earth…?

-          And you started humming out loud to match him and you guys just stood there and stared at each other for a good moment until the barista was like ‘…eHEM’

-          And you were startled and reached back to get your coffee and people were kind of staring a little because you guys were behaving kind of strangely but they had no idea

-          But you had work to get to, and you were going to be late if you weren’t careful, so you had to rush off, but you kept glancing back at him

-          He wanted to see more of you though…

-          And he figured you frequented the place because it seemed like you were the voice in his head and it was always stronger when he was there, so the next morning, he went there like ten minutes after they opened

-          You had gotten there as soon as they opened, because lbr, you wanted to see him again too, so as soon as you saw him walk in, you started singing in your head and as soon as you did that you saw his face light up in a smile, because he knew you had to be here because your voice was so strong

-          So he looked around until he spotted you, and you were looking at him, and you both got kind of bashful

-          And he ordered a drink, paid, and then seemed a little unsure of himself but he walked slowly over to your table anyway and sat down

-          And then there was this silence and it was obviously kind of weird, but both of you were silently like ‘yeah. Yeah, I know, I get it’

-          And then eventually, he was like “you have a nice voice.” And you giggled and said thank you and about that time, his drink got there and you guy had like an hour before either of you had to leave so you guys stayed there and talked irl, and you found out about each other’s careers and stuff, and he had a dog that was really fluffy and sweet, and you were studying at a somewhat prestigious university, and all that stuff

-          And in the silent pauses, often times, one of you would catch yourselves singing in your head and the other would join in and you guys just started laughing because this was really weird but so cool

-          Right before you both had to leave, he was like “hey, listen, if you want to, I’m available again tomorrow morning.”

-          And you smiled really wide which made him light up even more and you were like “uh, yes? Of course, this is fantastic?”

-          So it became a thing

-          And then when you had a really difficult test you asked him at your coffee meeting “I’m really sorry and normally I wouldn’t ask this, but I have an exam in two hours and if you start singing then I’m going to want to join in and all that’s going to be in my head is Mariah Carey or Shinee or whatever you’re singing and I’m literally going to fail” And he laughs and says no problem, honey

-          And he manages to keep his brain voice quiet throughout the exam, but just before you went in, he started singing eye of the tiger in your head and you had to stop yourself from laughing in the school hallways at nothing

-          So you guys eventually decided to try and just speak to each other in your heads, but that didn’t work. Words didn’t translate, and none of he music had lyrics it was just tune, but you figured out you could hum certain parts of songs with lyrics to get meaning across and it became sort of a game for you two

-          And then one evening you guys were taking a walk beside a river, and you’d been silent (real silent and brain silent) for a while, and he just started brain humming that part of happy where it’s like “This might seem crazy what I’m ‘bout to say”

-          And you were like “Can you tell me” from tell my by Giraffage (listen to it, you’re welcome)

-          And he sings “IIIII love yoouuuuu” from that Got7 song and he’s smiling really big and you just crumple into giggles and turn to hide your face in his shoulder and he hugs you and laughs and you say out loud “I love you too” really quietly into his shoulder

anonymous asked:

Hi there - hope you're having a nice day. I'm gonna bring up the mixtape again (dun dun). We see the mixtape for the first time in that ep, but we don't know when it was FIRST given as a gift, now do we? So I was wondering if you had any ideas about that. The tape looks in good condition, so maybe not 'years and years ago.' Also Cas keeps losing his coat or his life, and I imagine the contents of his pockets would get lost during that too. So what's a good timeline for this mixtape? Thoughts? <3

Hey there! Well I am never gonna complain about more discussion about the most destiel moment in the history of destiel thats for sure!

I mean this has been meta’d to death but do any of us tire of it? Ever? I don’t think so. :P

So I agree that it is a new mixtape. You just have to look at the original tapes that Dean had in the box to see that they were old and worn whereas this one is clearly new:

Its hardly an old worn out label is it?

So we know it was recent. The real question is HOW recent? Because there are several things we can consider that could prompt Dean to give Cas a mixtape:

  1. Cas recently almost died and confessed his love. Therefore, it could have been made by Dean in a response to Cas’s confession. A return “I love you too” in Dean’s own way. 
  2. However we know that Cas currently has a truck that does not have a tape player, so logically, it doesn’t make sense for Dean to give Cas a gift now that he can’t listen to (unless he also happens to have an old walkman in his coat pocket). Therefore potentially Dean gave it to him whilst he still had the old continental. So between 9x10 and 11x10.
  3. If we line that up with other times when Dean might have felt he needed to show Cas how much he cared about him, 9x10 is probably unlikely since there wasn’t any time between Dean realising Cas had a car and may want a tape to play and leaving because of all his guilt to go get the Mark of Cain.
  4. Is it possible that Dean made it whilst he had the Mark of Cain? He was in a pretty dark and angry place most of the time, but at certain points in season 10 (like following his confession) its possible. Maybe after asking Cas to ‘take him out’ he gave him the mixtape as a means for Cas to remember him. Trying to tell Cas with actions how much he meant to him whilst slowly loosing himself to the Mark… this one hearts my heart :(
  5. If Dean was too busy and consumed in his own descent to demonhood to make the mixtape during season 10, we reach a period of time post 10x22 where Dean felt very guilty about what he had put Cas through. He possibly could have made the tape and given it to Cas whilst Cas was recovering from the attack dog spell (11x03 - 11x06) when he was also searching for his car as Metatron had stolen it at this point. Motivation to get his car back perhaps?
  6. The issue with THIS theory is that Cas then goes and lets Lucifer possess him, and I don’t know how well Lucifer looked after Cas’s possessions. Since we never see the car again after 11x10, we can assume that the tape would have been in Cas’s pocket if he had it during this time, but then how on earth would he still be able to keep it, and keep it in good condition, baring in mind Lucifer went through ALOT during the rest of season 11.
  7. Therefore we bring ourselves back up to season 12 and potentially Dean gave Cas the tape after they were reunited in 12x01. Perhaps Dean just didn’t realise that the truck didn’t have a cassette player? Or perhaps Dean MADE it whilst Cas still had the Continental, but never built up the courage to give it to him at the time? The sad thing about this theory is that Cas probably never listened to the tape, since he didn’t have a means of listening to it, so when he finally returns it in 12x19, he wouldn’t have been able to listen to it anyway.

The last theory is actually the most logical, because the tape does look pretty much brand new, and I think that Dean has been aware of just how much Cas has been through recently, and the tape can easily be considered a gesture of love following the whole Lucifer situation as much as it can be a return gesture following Cas’s confession. 

The fact that this means Cas wouldn’t have been able to listen to it hurts though. I’d like to know if there was a moment when Dean fixed the truck for him in 12x19 when it dawned on him that the truck didn’t have a tape player, and therefore Cas didn’t listen to it, and I bet that one hurt. In amongst everything else Cas put him through in that episode, Dean realised that Cas couldn’t possibly have listened to his mixtape before he tried to return it. Poor Dean. 

See this is why I hope it comes back. I hope that Dean digs it out of Cas’s pocket in 13x01 and keeps hold of it himself. Just so I can ugly cry into my wine whilst @tinkdw, @amwritingmeta and @margarittet watch on in horror (though lbr, you guys would be ugly crying with me)

Still, after going through the timeline, I think that some point between 12x01 and 12x03 makes the most sense. But I think he MADE the tape earlier than that, and only plucked up the courage to give it to Cas following the return of Mary and during the Sam rescue mission. After all, there was a period of time between 12x01 and 12x02 where they all went back to the Bunker together as Cas would have had to pick up his truck again to go ahead to search for Sam on his own for where episode 2 picks off. That’s the fanfic gap I wanna place it in. It was in that period where they became all open and honest and acting like an old married couple. What happened that night after the fight with that badass BMOL lady with the knuckle dusters? They got Mary settled for bed and then what? I don’t think that Cas would have just left straight away, even if he did leave after Dean went to bed. They would have probably stayed up and talked for a bit since it would have been their first moment alone together since the beer run that wasn’t in 11x23. That is where I am placing the gifting of the mixtape as I can just picture Cas being all “Dean, I’ll head back out shortly to keep searching for Sam. Please try to get some sleep and I’ll call you in the morning” and Dean would be like “Okay dude but have a beer with me first yeah? Oh and by the way I have something for ya” cue Dean storming off all awkward to his room and back whilst Cas just looks confused before he thrusts the mixtape into Cas’s chest and says “present for ya, for when you are out on the road and wanna listen to some decent tunes” and at that point Cas hasn’t even paid attention to the fact the truck doesn’t have a tape player so just smiles and says “thank you Dean” all sincerely whilst Dean blushes and stumbles over his words in classic Dean fashion. 

Anyway that’s my headcanon and I’m sticking with it. I think its a reasonable theory when looking at all the other options. But please let me know what you think.

Is there any chance of a happy ending for the Lannisters? I know they are awful people but why develop their motivations and give each of them a genuine moment of compassion if they are just going to murder each other? Every other POV gets a moment of truth/redemption why not the children of Tywin/Patriarchy/Aerys and Disability? I'm a bad person myself so I need to believe the Lions can defy themselves and prophesy and overcome their nature or what's the point? Not all of us are born Starks.

Hey! So it’s gonna take me a few minutes to answer your question, but I promise I’m gonna get there.

In one of the other shows I watch, an actor commented on the banality of evil. He said that evil is something commonplace. Given the right circumstances, great acts of evil could be committed by your neighbors, or your friends, or you, or me. Because evil is so easy. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” You needn’t be a monster like Gregor to commit evil; you need only be human.

difference

inspired by/a response to danny miller’s comments last night concerning rebecca being able to give robert something aaron can’t, along with comments made in an earlier interview stating that women and men offer something fundamentally different both sexually and romantically.

i’m a bitter bisexual

They’re constantly living on the precipice of an argument. It takes so little to push them over the edge. An unwashed bowl. Too many nights worked late. A phone at the dinner table. They’re free falling again, clutching to each other for dear life, frightened fingers leaving bruises. They hit the ground together, bones broken but still just about holding on to one another. Still breathing but wondering how the hell they’re here again.

It always comes back to Rebecca.

Rebecca is Aaron’s ultimate trump card. He lays it down on the table when there is nothing else he can say. A small but deliberate gesture that says I’ve hurt you, but that’s nothing in comparison to what you’ve done to me.

This fight starts with a shoe left on the landing. Aaron’s work boot, to be precise. Maybe he shouldn’t have left it there. Maybe Robert should have watched where he was going. Maybe Aaron shouldn’t be such a slob. Maybe Robert should stop being such a neat freak. It doesn’t take long for the shoe to be forgotten.

Robert has no idea how they get there, but they get there, and they’re back at her name. It’s a punch he should know how to block by now, but he knows he has no right to. He just stands there, hands twisted behind his back while he waits for the impact.

‘She could give you something different, couldn’t she? Something I couldn’t give you. It’s different, isn’t it? Loving a woman? Having sex with a woman? It’s different and clearly you prefer it.’

anonymous asked:

since this week is the 100th ep of a thing you love so much - what are some of your favorite small Perc'ahlia moments, either before or after they became canon?

AAAAHHHH!!!11!!1!1!1!1

gawd i rarely ever get asked perc’ahlia questions anymore. i almost wanna bring back TMI Tuesdays just so i have an excuse to talk about perc’ahlia to my dying days but lbr i don’t need an excuse i’m completely obnoxious with this ship (just not on here as much as on twitter coz L O L)

A N Y W A Y.

idk if there’s any moment that’s truly small for me, coz i always read so/too much into every little thing b U T i’ll try?????

  • it’s not totally underrated or small, but percy walking up to vex and mocking saundor after they beat him. like, a lot of people enjoyed it coz it was cute-funny, and coz it made vex laugh again, but i feel like it was more than just that??? it was more than just to make vex laugh, it was to make vex laugh at saundor’s words. percy, who enjoys wielding words as weapons, saw this fuccboi twig-dick shitlord do it to someone he felt strongly about, someone he knew had been easily torn down by words that other people said about her, and there was no fucking way he was going to let that stick. so to really kick a tree-man when he’s down, percy took saundor’s own words like a sword he was handing to vex by mocking him and making her laugh at the very things saundor said to her to get thru her defenses. i mean. what a hero.
  • i really love the parallel of them using residuum to bring each other back from their first deaths, esp coz i think vex might’ve remembered keyleth telling her that that’s how percy contributed to bringing her back. again, that’s not really small, at least not among my fellow shippers, but they remember things that the other has said or done, esp for each other, and that’s really nice
  • the hype for this died down a bit, but vex’s insistence that the new dress that she got when she and Keyleth went shopping be in Whitestone colors. esp coz laura had said (on Talks, i think???) that vex now thinks of Whitestone as home more than Emon, and wearing Whitestone’s colors signified that not just for herself but anyone who saw her wearing them. and in my head, she didn’t tell percy about the colors of the dress, she just surprised him with them and it made him blush and smile a bit and i really like sheepish, blushy percy okay what an image what a concept!!!
  • i like the thought that percy has ALWAYS done little things and given vex stuff because it makes/keeps her happy. like, he didn’t HAVE to. he could NOT do any of that if she didn’t ask him to and STILL stay on her good side simply because he’s part of Vox Machina but NAH. he learned early on that her being happy is important to him in one way or another, and in more ways than one, so he made it a point to give her (his) money and to make her arrows BECAUSE it makes her happy.
  • i have a deep appreciation for them being so public with their affections??? from the lil butt slap in the fire plane to the “big, sexy, still-tied-up make-out kiss” in raishan’s lair. like it’s just like "WE’RE SO TOGETHER OMG???!!!?!?!?!” like it’s. so cUTE? esp after they’ve been so quiet and private about how they felt about each other BEFORE they became canon, esp coz percy thought he wouldn’t be good for her back in the day. so to see them now thriving and relishing in their relationship is juST. SO PURE.

this post is getting a little long and also i’m still a bit busy at work so i’m gonna end it here for now B U T if i think of more, i’ll just add to this. :D

congratulotions  asked:

random question: who are your favorite glinda and elphaba actresses, and why? (also this blog brings me great joy. thank you for giving us the good gelphie content we deserve)

(Ayyy i’m just glad I have a place where my gelphie feels and rambles are appreciated *finger guns*) 

I’ve talked about my faves before, but not so much why they are my faves so here goes:

Katie Rose Clarke is my favorite Glinda. I don’t know how she’s done it, because I usually don’t have a favorite performer. But I do, and it’s her. KRC!Galinda believes in her own goodness, which works really well for the stage version. She’s innocent, sweet, and by all means good. It makes sense why she keeps getting called ‘good’ by everyone around her. She’s also secretly a dork (WHICH IS TOTALLY GLINDA LBR). Even when she’s supposed to be mean to Elphaba, (”she’s phosphorescent” “the artichoke is steamed”) it comes across more as an Observation (although tacky)  than it’s actually meant to hurt Elphaba. 

But what I appreciate most about KRC, is she takes her goddamn time to let moments hit. With the dance scene, she lets it sink in how this is such an important and difficult decision for Galinda. She takes her time letting the words “you’re beautiful” hit. She is ONE OF THE TOUCHIEST GLINDA’S OUT THERE! That’s always a plus. 

AND WE HAVEN’T EVEN TALKED THE SECOND ACT MY FRIEND!!!! Katie Rose Clarke, first and foremost, is the angstiest Glinda ever. It’s painful. It’s heartbreaking. No other Glinda can convey the emotion of Thank Goodness better than KRC. It was like it was fucking made for her. After Elphaba’s death, she isn’t just sad, she’s fucking bitter and that’s exactly what adult Glinda is all about. She’s bitter. She’s only pushing through because that’s Elphaba’s wish. But even in scenes like NOWTM it’s written all over her how much she only doing this for Elphaba… if you know where to look

I could literally talk for hours about all the decisions she made. I actually had to cut some of it out bc it was getting too long. I just. I LOVE HER OKAY!?

Very honorary mentions of other Glindas I absolutely adore: Kara Lindsay (I know she’s your fav, and I agree, she’s awesome!), Megan Hilty, Annaleigh Ashford, and even though I’ve only ever heard her perfomance, I think I’d also very much dig Suzie Mathers’ Glinda. 

Come to think of it, my interpretation comes closer to most West End Glindas, than Broadway ones. This is mostly a cultural difference. Because in the US The Blonde trope is closer to “popular, shallow, dumb” whilst in the UK The Blonde trope is “classist, rich, spoiled, bratty, arrogant” which is waaay more Glinda-esque. Like the only West End Glindas I’ve seen are Sarah Earnshaw, Gina Beck and Suzie Mathers, and I think they’re all great, even tho I am a very specific about my Glindas. 

Not so much with Elphabas! (awesome segue) What I like about the role is that it can be pretty stylized, and that’s what keeps the role new and refreshing. I have talked before that I prefer my Elphabas to be rough around the edges (you got some who play her soft and innocent and NOPE), but here goes anyway.

Elphabas that I absolutely love to death in alphabetical order so it doesn’t look like I show any bias because I genuinely love all these ladies equally and for different reasons:

  • Eden Espinosa GAWDD She’s so good. I just. Yes. YES! I need to rewatch her some more so I can been more specific but YES!
  • Emmy Raver-Lampman deserves all the FREAKING LOVE okay!? She’s a deadpan Elphaba and sings like a goddess. What more do you need in life?
  • Donna Vivino this lady can SIIINNGGGG. Her Elphie is smol and bitter and angry and I love it. There’s also this one bootleg where she goes “As you can seeee~ she’s a PERFECTLY normal color!” and she accidentally kind of sings the “see” and sometimes I just replay that tiny bit because I love that line delivery so so much. 
  • Jennifer DiNoia is just an all-rounder Elphaba. Really good singer and actress and it shows how long she’s been with the role and how much she loves playing Elphaba. 
  • Lindsay Mendez look. okay. I haven’t been able to watch a bootleg of her in which she’s Elphaba. But I rewatch Fly Girl on the regular, and I’ve suffered through Dog Fight for her so I’m pretty sure I’ll love her Elphaba once I find a bl of her
  • Mandy Gonzalez so far the only real softie Elphaba I enjoy. She’s soft but bitter. Also she’s the only actress who gave me sibling Nessa&Elphie feels. She. WOW. I did not expect for her to rip my heart out, but I love
  • Rachel Tucker listen. when. Tucker. GROWLS. in her songs. I. Am. LIVING. also she looks exceptionally pretty in green, even tho all these women look gorgeous in green BUT SHE LOOKS SO GOOD IN GREEN!?!? I’m still furious she wasn’t allowed to talk with her gorgeous accent and she’s also just a genuinely good actress with a lot of passion that comes across really well on stage.
  • Stephanie J. Block I’ve only watched her bootleg once bc the camera quality is pretty bad but SHE’S SO GOOD!!! Also love love LOVED her in Falsettos and 9 to 5.
  • Willemijn Verkaik I mean, do I have to mention why? We all know why!

Also, I know you didn’t ask this, but there’s only one and I mean ONE Fiyero that genuinely charmed me and that is Derrick Williams. He’s does the most with the little that’s given to him and he’s actual a man of colour like Fiyero should be. My musical!Fiyero scale goes somewhere between “you’ve nice line delivery. thanks for that” to “i skip your scenes bc you’re an insufferable brat” but Derrick is the only Fiyero I look forward to seeing. He makes me get why every Ozian is so enarmored with Fiyero. Also he somehow managed to give me fiyeraba feelings???? ME!! one of THE biggest gelphie shippers out there. I mean, that’s impressive buddy. Well played. well played indeed!

professionalpenthief  asked:

where did ginaxrosa shipping start? and why? (not that i am against it but i just... never considered!?! it)

gina x rosa shipping started because Gina is the driving force behind 80% of Rosa’s laughs and 98% of Rosa’s smiles.

And when Rosa smiles because of Gina-related reasons, there’s a softer touch to those smiles, and they’re I-can’t-help-but-smile smiles.

Gina can get Rosa to laugh her head off. Big, genuine laughs that make Rosa’s head tilt up. Like when Gina tossed a stapler at Charles (2x22 cold open)

Gina and Rosa are different people but have things in common that draw them to each other. Like how they’re both people you don’t want to cross. Gina and Rosa are scary and you don’t want to mess with them. Gina uses her words and spirit, Rosa gives you one look and you know she could beat you up and you’ll thank her.

This scariness that Rosa and Gina have are what makes them so evenly matched. They won’t back down from a fight, ever, but weirdly you see them letting each other get away with stuff that they’d castrate someone else for.

For example, remember when Rosa almost murdered Hitchcock and Scully because they stole her moose tracks ice cream????

Guess what happened in thanksgiving episode 1x10. It’s not blatantly obvious, but Gina’s holding (and assumably, drinking) coffee from a cup clearly labeled ‘ROSA’. And Rosa does nothing.

Gina and Rosa are also shown to have a special, deeper kind of bond that we see through several (albeit occasionally subtle) instances.

Whenever Gina’s being Gina- see 1x16 and 2x07, Rosa’s being made to babysit and stop her from freaking people out/stealing/talking to people at parties. This could mean one or even both of two things:

1) Only Rosa can handle Gina because everyone else is too weak to go against her- ergo they are evenly matched

2) People know that Rosa’s the person Gina will most likely listen to- alluding to their deeper connection and understanding of each other

Another show of Gina and Rosa’s deeper connection is how they’re often on the same side. They like to judge, make fun of, and bully people together. They also seem to enjoy standing/sitting next to each other, (sometimes way too close more than they need to be eg. charges and specs 1x22) both of them crossing their arms (mirroring each other, which is like a couple thing/i’m-attracted-to-you thing)

They’ve also teamed up to solve Holt’s island riddle together and protested against turkey murder together. They also locked amy in the boot of a car- and walked off together laughing

They also really care about each other, for example when Rosa was being all guilty knowing she was prob going to have to shoot Charles down in 1x13 and hiding Gina NOTICED that Rosa was hiding away and even asked her why with a pretty confused/concerned looking face. Also, when Rosa got sick Gina prepared a pretty elaborate care package for her so she would get well (and please Gina who you tryna play here acting like Terry paid u/if he really did pay u pls putting the care package together prob took more money than the $20 you claimed Terry gave you)

AND THEN Rosa proceeded to smile so widely all touched by what Gina did for her!!!

And Gina put Rosa in her WILL if that doesn’t say “you’re important to me” idk what is. And the fact that those two jaguars making love is prob a representation of them is something else altogether

Rosa cares about Gina too, duh. But Rosa’s care comes more in the form of protectiveness, like when she placed her arm behind Gina ensuring she got out of the room safely before Rosa when the turkey got loose and tried to attack them. Rosa also put in a lot of security measures in place when Gina got robbed (although amy was involved too and Holt told them Gina was scared, but lbr Rosa’s protect-gina instincts got turned on full blast when she found out Gina was scared did you hear the conviction in her voice when she said “we are (going to keep you safe)”????)

Speaking of the turkey, Gina and Rosa get each other. When they protested against the turkey murder and Rosa saw Gina about to flip everyone off she joined right in. They know each other pretty well too. Gina knows Rosa’s likes (old movies, someone called 'the vulture’, etc.) and dislikes, and she can very accurately interpret what a Rosa action means. (Like when Rosa said 'bye’ to Marcus)

Also, Gina and Rosa seem to show interest in each other.

Like when Gina accidentally texted “sup Rosa” to Amy and that was in 2009 when she first joined the nine nine as civilian administrator so obviously Gina was trying to hit on Rosa and has prob been flirting with Rosa for eight years.

Part of their interest in each other includes attraction of course. In the episode where they let Gina interrogate a perp, Rosa looks overly interested in watching Gina forcefully question the perp and even when captain Holt wants to stop Gina Rosa doesn’t want it to stop. Also when Rosa unveils her sword in 3x23 as torture equipment Gina looks very turned on no offense

Also Gina is very obviously jealous of Adrian. She only started acting hostile towards him after Rosa started dating him, and please be reminded that this is the same Gina that didn’t even put her phone down when Adrian held a knife to Jake, her childhood bestie and oldest friend’s throat.

But Adrian dates Rosa and suddenly it’s “screw you adrian you’re not allowed to stay at Charles’s house” and “oh yeah ur right Adrian listen to the universe you should totally not marry Rosa!!” And the day before/on the day he was supposed to marry Rosa Gina doesn’t even let Adrian have candy wow Rude

After Rosa’s bachelorette party, Gina elopes with some cashier (prob a lady) and it’s likely that she was trying to escape from reality bc running away with someone you just met (although Gina was drunk) is not something you do if you’re super happy your friend is engaged, no matter how drunk you are, and no matter how Gina you are

Finally: Babylon

Dude if “has secret bathroom they don’t tell anyone about that they work super hard on to make nice” doesn’t scream “domESTIC” to you then idk what to say mate

(Also Rosa bringing Gina to Babylon for the first time bc Gina got sick is another example of how Rosa cares about Gina!!!)

Besides the implications of sharing a secret private place, Gina has a very violent reaction when Rosa wants to tell Boyle about Babylon (and Rosa asking Gina about it beforehand is like- wife asking wife for permission to bring friend over to house), and wants to keep it a private thing between the both of them

“Babylon’s our secret place! It’s the best thing in my life.” -if this doesn’t touch u even a little idk what will

I get why some people might not ship gina x rosa just by watching the show. Some of this stuff is put across in pretty subtle ways, and the things they say/know about each other aren’t always treated as a big deal by the show/are throwaway lines. Some things you see between Gina and Rosa like the coffee thing and the putting hand on back thing is something you can only catch by pausing the episode at the right time. Also many Rosa laughs/smiles in response to something Gina does or says is usually in the background, and you may not catch it if you aren’t paying attention to the squad’s reactions to each other

Are we grasping for straws when we ship gina x rosa? No we r not they r perfect but also the show needs to give us more gina x rosa because this is a ship that has so much potential

Chelsea Peretti and Stephanie Beatriz seem to be putting in effort to make gina x rosa work with their acting so not shipping it = ur not appreciating Stephanie taking the effort to smile so tenderly at stuff Chelsea says as Gina

AND Jake/Amy are a pretty stable couple now, so it’s definitely in your interest to start devoting your heart to gina x rosa too!! Why let one ship slay you when you can let two ships slay you

TL;DR- Gina and Rosa would make the perfect power couple that rules over the Nine-Nine which can nicely balance out cinnamon roll couple Jake and Amy! Sign up to be a gina x rosa shipper today!! All we want in exchange is your soul!!

Ruriiro no Toki (Moon Troupe 2017)

I saw the play on 5/6 in Umeda Theater Drama City, and it happened to be a very memorable show full of firsts: first solo lead for Miyaruri, first solo heroine for Umi, first show as a member of Tsukigumi for Reiko, and first live zuka small theater show for me. :’D It was also my first time seeing a live show by a troupe other than yuki or hoshi (i have my favourites and also the luck for my trips to coincide specifically with my favourites, apparently). I wasn’t planning on seeing it at first, but I am very glad I managed to. Plot summary for Act 1 (to not spoil it completely since the show is getting a dvd release) and my thoughts under the cut:

Now that I’ve emotionally recovered and finished V’s route with a good end on the first try (with some help in the name of non-spoiler chatroom guides and non spoiler tips and lots of save/recovery for the emails) I think it’s finally time for me a series of meta posts about certain characters in this game.

• AND yALL KISS ON YOUR FIRST DATE TOO OMG SO IMA INCORPORATE BOTH PLS BE PATIENT WITH ME YALL

• because jaemin has been receiving lessons from his hyungs on dating it isn’t surprising that he brought you to the movies on your first date not because it highly suggested by his hyungs…

• you both agreed to meet outside the movie theatre and he was there an hour early and boy was he nervous as heck

• the older members were also there for a little while to prep him up aw how supportive

• sO after giving him half an hour long of prep talk and re-styling his hair (for running through them anxiously mULTIPLE OF TIME) ITS FINALLY TIME

• YOU TURNED UP RIGHT ON TIME AND YOU SAW HIM STANDING THERE OUTSIDE DAZING OFF INTO THE DISTANT

• HE LOOKS SO GOOD JUST STANDING THERE AND YOURE LIKE ‘tF HO W IN THE WORLD DID I END UP WITH HIM BLESS’

• pls excuse me for a moment here oh my god na jaemin is seriously one of the most attractive 16 years olds I’ve ever seen f U CK CALMD DJOWN

• ok lets get back

• IT WAS THEN YOU START TO FEEL THAT WEIRD FEELING IN THE STOMACH LIKE YOURE ABOUT TO THROW UP FROM THE NERVOUSNESS AND ANXIETY BUILDING UP INSIDE YOU

• BUT YOU STILL APPROACHED HIM ANYWAYS FROM BEHIND AND WHEN YOU FINALLY REACH HIM YOU GAVE HIM A LITTLE TAP ON HIS SHOULDERS

• POOR BOY WAS SO STARTLED HE JUMPED A FEW FEET IN THE AIR jk I was just exaggerating

• bUT STILL

• AND WHEN HE TURNED AROUND HIS JAW JUST DROPS THE MOMENT HE LAID HIS EYES ON YOU MAKING YOU BLUSH AND SHIT AND YOU COULDNT LOOK AT HIM IN THE EYES GOD DAMNIT SHDBNDSKDN

• SEEING HOW SHY AND EMBARRASSED YOU ARE BY HIM AND HE JUST LOVES SEEING YOU LIKE THIS ,, YOU BET MY LAST $3 THAT HE’D TEASE THE HECK OUT OF YOU

• “aigoo, my beautiful girlfriend looks even more beautiful than usual tonight. did you dress up especially for me?”

• I want to kms

• you’d just smack his arm and walk away, trying to hide your face. “let’s go buy the tickets before the show starts, you twerp…”

• the smile on his face would just become wider and he’d catch up with you, naturally reaching out for your hand and intertwining them together

• where the fuck did that nervous dipshit go and where the fuck did he find such confidence to become such a cheesy little shit

• jaemin also bought popcorn and drinks for the both of you and being the cheesy lil shit insist y'all share the drink with two straws while giving the excuse “i wouldnt be able to finish mine if we bought two” 

 • “I can buy my share myself” 

 • “nonono it’s too late for that now the movie is about to start and the line for the snacks is now really long lets go babe you don’t wanna miss out the beginning of the movie”

 • he holds your hand and leads you both inside the theatre and to your seats • “what are we watching again” 

 • “the conjuring 2” 

 • TOTALLY NOT TEN AND JOHNNY’S SUGGESTION 

 • “hmm,, ok… wAIT WHAT” 

 • you stared at him wide eyed and jaemin suddenly looked remorseful and he regrets everything especially listening to his hyungs who probably learnt all their “techniques” and “moves” from watching too much corny chick flick and kdrama 

 • “sorry, I should’ve asked you. do you want to leave right now? I can get tickets to see another movie.” 

 • THIS BOY IS LEGIT READY TO GET UP AND GET YOU TICKETS TO WATCH ZOOTOPIA IN THE THEATRE NEXT DOOR 

 • HE WILL DO ANYTHING FOR YOU 

 • but your cheapskate ass just grabs him and pulled him back down in his seat but not letting go of his hand 

 • “its fine jaemin, ive seen the trailer and my friends say it’s pretty good. let’s enjoy this movie shall we? haha.”

• though your face say yes but heart say no, jaemin was reluctant but eventually decided to sit back down when the lights went off

• “but if the movie gets too scary and you dont feel like watching it anymore you can always tell me, ok y/n? we could have dinner early or something, i’ll bring you some place nice.”

• instead of watching in the beginning of the movie, jaemin was watching you the entire time with a stupid smile of his face despite worrying over the fact that you might be scarred for life

• eventually you caught him and you had to forcefully make him stare ahead at the big screen instead. at first he was pretending but soon enough he was immersed in it

• this dipshit istg

• when the climax of the movie came, you knew what was going to happen and you immediately grabbed jaemin’s hand while following your instincts and hid behind his shoulder

• he was caught off guard at first lmao since he was too immersed in the movie that he nearly forgot that hes on a date 

• after realising you had grabbed his hand and possibly squeeze it for as long as the climax part of the movie lasted, he blushed and tries to bite back a smile from forming on his face

• and when he turned to look at you, seeing that you’ve curled up in the seat, ears covered with your other hand and eyes squeezed shut, he was this close into melting into a puddle of goo because you looked so cute and squishy and he just wants to hold you 

• and he did 

• i am trying not to scream as i type this 

• he skillfully wrapped his arm around your shoulders and pulled you into his embrace, stroking your hair as he teases you “aigoo my big baby i told you we should’ve watched something else instead.”

• you both went on to watch the movie like that, you clinging onto him like your life depended on it and him enjoying every second of it and lowkey wishes the movie to be longer

• when the creepy music in the background began to play as the second climax arrive, you were already gripping onto jaemin’s arm. being the perfect boyfriend material he is, he covered your ears. (BASICALLY JUST LIKE THE WAY SUNGJAE DID TO JOYIN WGM WHILE THEY WERE WATCHING A MOVIE I MISS THEM SO MUCH)

• but as soon as it was over (after all that exorcism and shit and everything becomes brighter), you’ll just look up and blush in embarrassment cos jaemin was staring back at you with a smug look on his face tHIS LITTL E SHIT

• you also notice that there are red marks on his arm from where you were grabbing him so you gasped and began apologizing for nearly tearing his arm apart during the movie while gently stroking his arm while rambling on and on about how sorry you are and also complimenting how he’s practically hairless 

• apparently you were rambling on too much that he couldn’t take it??? not in a bad wAY BUT it wasn’t just your rambles that was driving him crazy 

• it was your moving lips

• yes LiPSSSS gIRL YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS

• YOU GUESSED IT

• he kissed you 

• to shut you up 

• and to also finally man up and kiss you like how he should’ve 3 weeks ago when you both started dating

• mmMm gotta get me a guy like jaemin A++

• you were too stunned to kiss him back so you just stared at him wide eyed when he pulled away

• “i-what-huh-wait, jaemin-what-” you poor confused child

• “how did you know peach was my favorite flavor.” he wipes the corner of his lips as he said that with a shit eating grin, causing you to turn crimson.

• “what are you kids still doing here? the movie is over; leave.” 

• whoops 

• so basically that was how jaemin found his confidence and that was just only the beginning of this cute relationship and he just adores the heck out of you and loves you to bits you guys are practially engaged in his head and he hopes that not only you’ll be his first love you’ll also be his last iTSNT THAT THE CUTEST THING EVER

• i am crying blooODdd i hope you guys enjoyed this like how i enjoyed torturing myself ㅠㅠ

Reasons why Hannibal/Bedelia makes perfect sense:

  • he feels protective of her.
  • of all the psychiatrists he could have chosen, it was her. There’s something about her that intrigues him.
  • she has the capacity to do Very Bad Things, which is something Hannibal knew before she did.
  • he refused to accept her resignation and she chose to accept his refusal.
  • he covered up her murder as she covered up his involvement.
  • she’s the only person besides Will Graham who knows and understands him.
  • he opens up to her about his innermost thoughts and feelings to a degree he hasn’t even done with Will.
  • she’s suspected that he’s dangerous for a while but continued his therapy regardless because her professional curiosity in him was too great to resist.
  • she’s one of very few people who saw him for what he is and survived it (in part through her own intelligence, in part because he cares about her to a degree).
  • she made the conscious choice not to kill him and instead chose to join him because again, her curiosity in him is too great to resist.
  • he allowed her to go with him instead of killing her right there, when he had already left everyone else to die (Hannibal is a social creature who enjoys company and Bedelia is a familiar force in his life he feels trusting of).
  • she’s drawn to the criminal mind, Hannibal’s in particular.
  • she’s no innocent bystander; she’s complicit in his crimes and while terrified also fascinated and participating in them to a degree she hasn’t anticipated but is undeniable.
  • they have very similar tastes; Bedelia’s house closely resembles Hannibal’s and they listen to the same kind of music. It wouldn’t be a stretch to assume Bedelia enjoys the environment and life they have in Italy as much as he does (apart from the crimes).
  • she’s an unconventional psychiatrist, like him, which doubtlessly drew him to her and makes her therapy with him about as unhealthy as his with Will’s.
  • she’s intelligent and capable enough to see through him and manipulate him to a degree, making her more an equal than a victim.
  • she never sugarcoats things and is always extremely frank with him, despite knowing what he is, and he reacts to those moments with almost childish petulancy, not anger. She’s much more of a guiding force in his life than he would probably like to admit.
  • he wanted to be her friend and she shot him down, stating that they’re colleagues but not that – because he doesn’t show his true face and hides behind a veil. The veil is now lifted and they share an openness and honesty Hannibal has never had with anyone else except to a degree Will Graham.
  • from what we’ve seen, her life is somewhat depressing; he’s her only patient, she’s alone in the house, and apparently nobody missed her when she disappeared. Hannibal can offer her excitement and intrigue, which she seems to be interested in, judging by her continuous involvement with someone who she knows to be dangerous.
  • them posing as a married couple is no coincidence; it’s Hannibal’s way of enforcing commitment, ensuring her loyalty. If she truly wished to betray him, a ring on her finger wouldn’t stop her, but somehow Hannibal seems to think it would – marriage clearly means something to him, and he chose her to do it with.
