life getting worse

katie mcgrath/supercorp fans, we need to have a tiny chat.

i’m assuming (hoping, mostly) that the majority of fans that are doing this are young, but yall really need to cool it a bit with trying to speculate and dig into katie’s personal life. she is obviously a very private person, if her lack of social media, and her stating as such in interviews is anything to go by. and apart from that, it’s just… incredibly rude? and weird. and a boundary that needs not to be pushed. (this goes for all actors/musicians/etc. fyi, holy shit! it’s not a new concept.)

like, it’s great that more people are becoming fans of hers! but ho boy, some of the stuff yall are saying and doing just isn’t cool. just, relax a little. leave her personal life alone. it’s not that hard.

also, this isn’t actually a problem like digging into her personal life is, but can yall just cool it with the kashy mcgra thing? it’s how her name is pronounced. just, relax.

Please read.

And I thought my life couldn’t get any worse. More trauma. My mother was arrested and she’s the only person I have (the only person who does not abuse me). I’m old enough to live by myself but I’m only 17 and extremely mentally ill and cannot go into work unless it is sex work, which will deteriorate my health further. She did not do anything wrong, she has a morphine pump for broken disks in her back and she was charged with a DUI. I know it’s not a “big deal” but this week I’ve been admitted to a psychiatric hospital, my moms been arrested, I’ve been assaulted. If you could reblog this and please donate I would be grateful. I have no medicine, which is my cymbalta, humalog, klonopin, and lamictal. I am a type one diabetic and I will die without it. I need to try to get money for SOMETHING. ANYTHING. I cannot live like this and I don’t know when she’ll be getting out, and when she does we will have No. Money.

I know I’ve talked about this before, but I’m really sick of seeing writers who should know better say things like, “Tragedy is more compelling than stories where characters have a nice day and nothing bad happens!” without understanding why.

Tragedy is an effective story element when it’s a deviation from the norm. A character’s peaceful existence is disrupted by a catastrophic event that throws everything into chaos. The character now has to either develop so they can cope with the new status quo, or find a way to put things back the way they were. There’s a good story in that.

But when a character’s life is an unrelenting cavalcade of misery, another heaping dose of shit isn’t all that interesting. At that point, a compelling deviation from the norm would be said character having a nice day where nothing bad happens. And modern fiction is chock-full of misery porn, so by this logic, it’s no wonder the coffee shop AU is such a popular fanfiction trope.

Derek Hale getting a dog and putting his life back together is way more interesting than Derek Hale’s life getting worse for the 26th consecutive episode. Creators like to hold up “everything is fine and nobody dies” as a sign that fanfic is bland and badly written, but if anything, it’s an indicator that mainstream fiction is bland and badly written.

Quid nove sub sole by LeanaM

Pairing : Dean x Plussize!Reader, Soulless!Sam
Word count : 2,411
Author : Mel
Warnings : Angst?, Sam is a dick.



Opening the front door to the modest two floor home, Dean moved as silently as possible. He applied every bit of stealth he had ever learned as a hunter into getting himself up the stairs to the second floor without being detected. If he was caught, this was all over. The shittiest day of his life would get so much worse. What he did now, was harder than any job, any case, hell, anything he had ever done before and it was killing him.

He hit the second floor landing and looked up the hall. He could hear her. She was singing. He closed his eyes and silently made his way towards her. As soon as he laid eyes on her, his brothers voice rang out in his head. “You have a decision to make Dean. Make it fast before I make it for you.”

anonymous asked:

Where is it normal to have smaller stores inside other stores!?! Like I read stories of people saying they have Starbucks or Pizza Hut or whatever inside their store and it's so weird. We do not have that in Australia but it's sounds like fun

It is NOT fun. I’ve never been in one but I know the horror stories. Example, someone that has a mart of walls gift card tries to redeem it from a way of subs store WITHIN the mart of walls and finds out that they can’t. It’s the goddamn clogged toilet of retail after a super watery shit. You’re lucky that American capitalism hasn’t poisoned your country. Make sure it stays that way. We are a goddamn virus worse than STDs. Escape while you can because your retail life WILL get worse because “capitalism” and eagles or some shit. I don’t know about other countries but it isn’t uncommon  here for there to be a “store within a store”. It’s a goddamn mess. You’d be better off cleaning diarrhea from a baseball stadium’s entire volume than deal with that. -Abby

grunklebill  asked:

i want to thank you for writing that snippet of "Obi-Wan's Life Gets Worse (Tho It's Not As Bad As It Could've Been)". i started wondering what bail and padme's reactions would be to the whole situation, if they were part of the 134 senators, if they knew what senator mandai was doing, if they're going to vote for him. any thoughts?

thank you! I’m really glad you enjoyed it, though I have to give a shout-out to @obaewankenope for coming up with the whole idea in the first place! 

Also that title is amazing. I love it.

As for Padmé and Bail, though, hmmmmmmmm.

Padmé Amidala moves through the Senate, Bail Organa at her side, heading toward the emergency session. The information she received about it is scarce, which troubles her, but she knows it’s been called by Senator Mandai of Haa’ndu. The only other information she possesses is that the session is about the war, the clones and the Jedi.

“Bail, do you know anything about Senator Mandai? Her political leanings, why she might have called this session, what exactly she’s planning to address? Anything?”

Bail hums and strokes his chin, easily keeping up with Padmé’s stride even when slightly distracted by his own thought process.
