let's go back to work

( okay so I will finish the rest of the asks I got tomorrow. I work in the morning so I have to head to bed now. I just need to get through tomorrow so that I can finally reach my day off. Then I will work on drafts and work on my other blogs because all my sons are gathering dust and we cant have that happening. )

Faith let out a low moan causing Tim to look up from his seat on the couch. The brunette was sprawled on the floor scrolling through her laptop, one earbud in her ear. 

“Sometimes Hero work is about research, you are going to have to get used to this” Tim’s advice was greeted with a scowl from the girl. 

“Psht, I’m bored,” she said letting out another moan letting her forehead hit the keyboard as her legs kicked back and forth. 

Tim let out a chuckle going back to this work. 

“Hey Tim,” 

“Yeah?” 

“Find anything?” 

“No”

Silence.

“Hey Tim,”

“Yeah?” 

“Find anything?” 

“Not since the last time you asked.” 

“Useless” she mumbled going back to her screen. 

Silence 

“OH Tim!”

“Yeah, what?” 

“Did you find anything?” 

If she didn’t have that stupid grin on her face he would have been mad, “Not yet” 

They lapsed back into silence. A silence that stretched out more than a few seconds. Long enough that Tim suddenly felt distracted. Glancing up he saw Faith studying her computer screen, eyes furrowed. She normally only had that look when she was trying really hard to understand something.

“Hey Faith?” 

“Yeah?” 

“Did you find anything?” 

She looked up at him a huge smile that light up her whole face.

“Hey Tim,”

“Yeah?” 

“You’re my favorite”

I’m slightly disturbed now that I’m replaying Cullen’s scene in Broken Circle. I didn’t remember how… Damaged he was in this scene. Now that I’m paying attention, he was so beyond okay it isn’t even funny. Who thought it was okay ti put him back into service after everything he went through? The things he saw, the things he went through…He wasn’t okay. He was very much not okay, and yet, Cullen went right back to be a Circle templar.

See, the thing is, the order failed Cullen pretty bad at that. He could’ve been sent to stay in a Chantry for a while. Somewhere away from mages. But no. They left him in the very halls he was tortured and saw the people he considered friends die. 

You know what really hurts me? This sentence:

“And to think I once thought we were too hard on you.”

(he said something a bit different to my Warden, since this one isn’t a mage, but it was to the same effect)

Before the events of Broken Circle, Cullen thought that Templars were too harsh on mages. He was, maybe on the way of thinking mages deserved better treatment. He trusted mages enough to be infatuated for one. But then he saw abominations, he was tortured, had his most private thoughts and feelings violated, saw demons killing people left and right, Uldred was doing unspeakable things in a room above Cullen, where he could listem to everything. 

Also look at the place he was trapped in

Look at this. There are bodies and… Corruption everywhere. He got trapped in that place for God knows how long.

His fear turned into some pretty solid hatred. And I think maybe hate was the way he found to cope with all the trauma. It’s better to turn your pain into a weapon you can use against others, than leave it something that will only cut you (and I mean that as a trail of thought, not something you should do. Because it obviously isn’t the best course of action at all. Nor does it absolve anyone for their mistakes).

I don’t blame him for his hatred. I don’t blame him for wanting the mages dead. Anyone in his position probably wouldn’t be able to say something rational or not be dominated by fear and anger. And I pretty much doubt that anyone can go back to normal without help after this on the spot. This is enough to drive anyone mad.

To be quite honest, it’s truly remarkable he managed to snap out of it at all…

What we have been waiting for!

Sort of. 

This episode wasn’t written by Duff, but Kendall, who LOVES Sharon. 

That’s why this episode is what we want. Not quantity, but QUALITY. We learned Andy’s ex’s name, we got Andy’s past and what went wrong in his marriage, we got Sharon & Ricky talking about her marriage and ex and faith, and we got back story on Sharon and the victim! Nothing physical, yet SO MUCH KNOWLEDGE shown to us. But it only happens when Kendall writes. 

So do not stop fighting for what you believe we deserve to see. The goal is to get DUFF writing these types of scripts, not just the writers who come in for one or two episodes a season :)

Side note - Mary was GORGEOUS in this episode. Hair, make-up, clothing was ON POINT. She was glowing again. I love that when it happens ♥

To me I think that feminism is like a sisterhood concept, where we accept each other and make things more possible for everyone. I think that the problem is that there are too many people saying this is what feminism is and this is what it isn’t. And telling people you can’t do this, you can’t do that. They tell you what to be like as a mother and as a working woman. It doesn’t allow for the individual variation and everyone having to find their own thing. It would be great to take the judgement out of feminism and let’s like support each other. So, if you need a year off after having a baby or if you want to go straight back to work—let’s make both of those scenarios possible. We’ve got to create a society where it’s possible.

a listener sent in a message talking about wanting to see their family when they’d be abroad and asked jjongd if he ever felt the same way.

jonghyun: of course. when being abroad i’d have a lot of fun, but i would feel like going back home and resting, too. also: i’m not really someone who enjoys traveling. that’s why, once i end my work, whenever that would be, i’d think: “let’s go back now”. however, i don’t have those thoughts while working. i’d only feel like going back home when i had just ended work - right in that moment! i really miss my house’s puppy when i’m abroad. of course, i’d miss my family a lot but i always …, the one that welcomes me, reflecting on the opaque glass, shining, that child’s silhouette, wiggling her tail when i would just come with my carrier and when i’d just open the door …, my puppy’s silhouette shining through the opaque, half transparent glass is really, really cute and pretty. i’d have thoughts of wanting to quickly and see exactly that.

This long pause after Luna calms Raven when she isn’t sure whether to apologize to Murphy or not is so perfect I want to cry.

There’s this momentarily stricken look on her face, like she is so ashamed of exploding like that, and she feels guilty for it, and yet. There’s still the problem of having to look at him, and not being able to go as far as saying ‘sorry’ or ‘don’t know why I did that’. The best she can do is “Let’s go again,” steel herself to get back to work, back to the more important thing.

And honestly that’s as bygones-y as Raven is gonna get – “we’re good, let’s focus” and “throwing self back into obsession that’s killing her” at the same time.

But that’s when he knows there were No Lies in anything she said. That she lost control from the stress and the stuff going on in her brain and the weight of the world on her tiny shoulders, but I hate you, I hate you is still *in there* and never going away. God.

I sometimes get shivers thinking about how powerful Magnus is both physically and mentally. And Harry reinforced it yesterday, the idea that Magnus knows so much and somehow knows how things are going to plan out and yet sits back and lets others work it out for themselves. He’s not just powerful in terms of what he can do with his magic, things that people can’t even comprehend, the fact that there are these problems shadowhunters are going through and Magnus can just deal with it so quickly. It’s incredible. It’s like a rush. Knowing how much capacity he has within himself, and mentally too, he’s been through so much he’s observed so much, he knows peoples decisions and he knows the consequences and he let’s it happen. Because people need to learn, and improve and better themselves. Everything about this just gives me goosebumps, it’s at a phenomenological level, where Magnus Bane is just encompasses with aura of utmost brilliance. 

Can we ~milennials~ start a trend that helps retail workers please??

Like, if youre at the store and see an item on the floor while youre shopping, or you see something thats CLEARLY
misplaced, please do your very best to pick it up and get it back to the right area, or close to it at least.

Pick something up you realize you dont want to buy? Try to put it back in the spot you found it.

See a kid knock something onto the floor or another fully functioning adult making a goddamn mess? Put one or a couple things back up where they go.

Lets work to make ~us darn milennials~ an even more considerate, helpful, and empathetic generation in our everyday lives. Even if you just help a tiny bit, youre genuinely helping make a retail worker’s life a little easier.

I’ll find out whether I got the job or not a the aquarium by tomorrow aksfjklsdgjadfdsfsfgsdgdfg

i was told that seven days were long enough for a dream … but for me, seven days were long enough to fall in love.
