Harry’s calling card has always been his familiarity and charisma, and throwing himself headfirst into that sometimes tricky solo transition without looking back, that hasn’t changed a bit. Making the kind of music he’s always clearly felt most at home with, and loving every minute, the shaping of Harry Styles’ new solo identity is just beginning.
what exactly did luke DO back on tatooine? like, what was his life as a member of the slave rebellion like? you've made it sound pretty wild (vandalism, accessory to grand theft, gunrunning) but I Need To Know More?
Well the “grand theft” charge in fact refers to stealing people. Or it would, if they could ever pin anything on him.
Luke was mostly involved with running people to safety, helping to hide them on his family’s farm, and in particular helping Aunt Beru perform the surgeries to remove transmitters in the hidden room off their garage. By the laws of the Hutts, that makes him guilty of grand theft and accessory to grand theft.
By the time Luke was a teenager, and starting to get pretty heavily involved with the freedom trail, the scanner had spread through most of the underground network. The stories say that Ekkreth stole the secret of the scanner from the Depuran and gave it to the people. And Ekkreth wears a hundred thousand shapes and works with a hundred thousand hands, making modifications, passing the device along, spreading from safe house to safe house and giving the people the tools they need to steal themselves.
Luke himself has made a couple of modifications to the scanner: he’s made the design more streamlined, smaller, easier to hide. And, of course, he’s used it quite a lot himself.
They have a system, Luke and Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen. Aunt Beru is the surgeon. She was Grandmother Shmi’s student and her hands are steady and strong. She teaches Luke, too, and he’s performed a few surgeries himself. But usually his job is to work the scanner, and then to talk the person through the operation, to help them in any way he can. Uncle Owen runs interference and makes sure that everyone is fed and safe, and sometimes he pays off the right people when it has to be done.
And, of course, there’s the farming business to attend to, as well. They all do that.
And okay, maybe sometimes Luke likes to sneak out with his friends, and maybe they’ve tagged a building or ten, and maybe there was one time they almost got caught red-handed by Bib Fortuna himself. But they didn’t. That’s the important thing.
And yeah, all right, maybe Luke’s run guns a few times, but that’s not a big deal. Everyone on Tatooine has run guns at least once. It’s just something people do.
(A few years later, Luke casually mentions some of these things to his new Rebel friends, because really they aren’t a big deal so sometimes they just slip out in conversation.
Wedge stares into the camera like he’s on the Office.)
Requested by anon:
Hello! May ask a song-fic request to “Baby it’s cold outside”, reader x who ever you would like? Thank you!”
In which the reader needs to get home and study but Anthony refuses to let her leave because it’s too dang cold outside and he’s in love with her oops
Warnings: no smut, some suggestive content, swearing
a/n: Thank you to the anon for requesting this & for everybody’s patience! Since the holidays & finals week are all coming up, I tried to incorporate them here. In advanced sorry for how bad this might be, writing songfics are so hard haha. ENJOY(:
Hey! So I'm relatively new to your blog but can I just say, I seriously love it! Now my question is where did the inverted locket come from? I'm kinda confused Love all of you!!
so kind! thanks so much for your support, we love you too!
the inverted locket – or the monster soul locket –
became a part of my headcanon shortly after playing the game,
although i’m sure many fans have independently come up with the same idea!
after thinking about it for quite a while, i made a post mentioning it briefly.
here’s the reasoning behind it: “chara hated humanity.” therefore, chara probably would not want a representation of humanity weighing on their neck. realising this, asriel gives chara a heart locket in the form of a monster soul, inscribed with “best friends forever.” this treasured keepsake would remind chara that the dreemurrs consider them to be a part of their monster family.
the appearance of chara’s heart locket is never revealed in game, so there’s nothing to debunk this headcanon! however, asriel does wear an up-right heart locket in canon:
i believe that while asriel gave chara a monster soul locket, he wears a human soul locket out of support for his best friend. it’s endearing to imagine chara and asriel giving each other a little part of themselves; in a sense they are always inseparable. of course, the lockets also foreshadow chara’s plan and the children’s tragic fate.
perhaps “best friends forever” is engraved on not just chara’s locket, but asriel’s as well.
best of all, it’s very cute! now i make a habit of reblogging all of the monster soul lockets i happen across (i just started tracking the #monster soul locket tag in hopes of finding more). on this blog i collect them right here. i just love it so much!
What would Seventeen think of their curvy girlfriend :0??
Requested by anon. I would’ve never thought of this, so thank you so much for sending this idea in! It turned out to be a super fun one to write. I hope you enjoy!!
Request reactions and scenarios on my page if you’d like :)
Would be totally in love with your shape omggg. You know Seungcheol’s part in Adore U when he makes a curvy body shape gesture with his hands (1:49 in the fixed camera dance practice video if you wanna check it out lol), well he would definitely be thinking of you whenever he performs that part of the song c; He’d also be begging for hugs all. the. time.
Whenever he gets bored, this boy would just take you by the waist and pull you in for a comfy hug. He’d just love your curves and would take every opportunity to hold you. And every once in awhile he’d rest his chin on your shoulder and whisper in your ear that you’re beautiful beautiful beAUTIFUL <33
GIVE ME A MOMENT, I CAN’T THINK STRAIGHT WHENEVER I SEE THIS GIF. Okay so Josh would most definitely be one to compliment you on your curves every now and then when you guys are alone. He would also D I E every time he sees you wearing clothes that show off your body shape (the gif is an accurate representation of what he’d be like in his head jsdalfjdhaflj).
When Jun sees you wearing outfits to show off dem curves, he’d always take a quick glance down before looking up to your face bC HE’D JUST FIND EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU SO FREAKING ATTRACTIVE. He’s probably thinking of how lucky he is every time he looks at you ;u; He’d also enjoy pulling you in for random hugs.
Boi this human hamtaro would be gassing you up over your beauty everyday. He’ll always be throwing compliments every time you walk into the room like, “someone’s looking hella good today ;)” But that’s when you guys are alone. When other people are around and you walk in, he’d just be blushing to himself and thinking, “she’s just so… beautiful.”
It doesn’t matter if you’re alone with him or if you guys are around other people; Wonwoo would always flash the cutest smile after looking at you from head to toe. Inside his head, he’d be asking himself, “damn, how did I get myself the most beautiful girl in the universe?”
Whenever Jihoon sees you, he’d give you a really long stare but wouldn’t smile or anything. DON’T TAKE THAT AS A BAD THING THOUGH. In fact, he’s actually melting at the sight of you, but internally. He wants to keep his cool because he doesn’t want the others to tease him for being soft whenever you’re around (because they won’t live that down for the rest of his life lmao). He’d definitely tell you how much he loves your shape with a hug when you guys are alone.
Seokmin would make eyeing you up and down super obvious, especially when you guys are alone. Oftentimes, he’d be one to hold you by your waist when you’re walking together. Back hugs are also a must!!! You’d have to ask him why he’s hugging you so much, and he’d just reply, “I don’t know… you’re just so… pretty. And you’re mine, so…”
When he’s hanging out with the other members and you walk in, he’d just smile and watch you walk into the room. “Mingyu, wtf you gotta greet your girlfriend. What’s wrong with you??” the members would say, having noticed him staring. “I will, I will,” he’d reply. He’s just enjoying watching you in all your beauty. He’ll proudly bring you in for a hug in front of everyone afterwards because he’s just sweet like that.
This boy would have huuuuge heart eyes every time he sees you. He would’ve never imagined having a such a pretty girl to call his own, and would take opportunities alone with you to hold you close and tell you just how beautiful you are to him. Also an avid lover of back hugs, just like Seokmin :)
Dude this guy is so soft, he’d probably want to cry every time you guys see each other. But seriously, he’d just love EVERYTHING about you, and your outer beauty would just make him melt all the time. He wouldn’t even have to see you to cry. He could just be thinking about you and a he’d have the brightest smile. Probably one of the proudest boyfriends tbh…
With the members around, he’d give you a simple smile when you walk in. But when you guys are meeting up alone, you can expect Hansol to casually bite his lip behind your back. But you’d catch him doing so once in while, so you’d laugh at him like, “hey, whatchu biting your lip for?” “Oh nothing, I’m just… admiring you. That’s all.”
Would be super shy to let you know that he loves your curves, so he’d probably just smile very widely when he sees you. Later on in the relationship, he’ll start initiating more skin ship, and while doing so, he’d also mention how beautiful you are, inside and out.
I’m very sure that Seventeen would love any and every body shape, but they’d love your heart over everything else <3
Listen I LOVE fantasy novels about badass women overcoming patriarchal societies, but like… I’m also really really tired of fantasy novels about patriarchal societies?
There’s something very demeaning about the way so many fantasy authors can create fascinating, in-depth worlds and characters and magic systems, but a society in which men and women are simply treated equally is considered “unrealistic.” You cannot tell me that there’s simply no potential world where gender roles/bias aren’t an issue! I don’t believe you! I reject your every-fantasy-society-ever-has-to-resemble-Medieval-times arguments!
Give me my fantasy novels where kings and queens are equally respected and princes AND princesses get to choose whether they want to become a knight or get married for political reasons and even the villains aren’t sexually aggressive towards female characters because that’s just not a thing you do. I hate this “if you’re a woman you’re never going to be fully safe no matter what world you live in!!” outlook. Bring on my escapist fantasy novels about elves riding into the battle on the backs of dragons sans the misogyny, please and thank you.
Anonymous said: Hello I have a prompt! Remember in 4.03 when Felicity was attacked by the card-villain and she fended him off? Could you write something where the night after that she lays in bed with Oliver and he asks her to explain what happened and we get to see a very worried but proud Oliver and there’s a bit of angst but a lot of fluff thank you! (No, that gif is no mistake!)
As soon as she had unlocked the door and stepped into the loft, she dropped her purse to the floor and kicked her shoes away, sighing at the feeling of the cold hardwood floor beneath the aching soles of her feet. Smiling, she turned around to Oliver, who closed the door behind him, and wrapped her arms around his waist, straightening up onto the tip of her toes to kiss him gently. Oliver sighed against her lips quietly, putting his arms around her shoulders to pull her even closer.
Why I think Eurus knew that Sherlock was in love with Molly
I think we can all agree on the fact that Eurus had no interest in hearing Molly Hooper say the words ‘I love you’.
She wanted Sherlock to say it. Like Mycroft says: ‘This is all about you. Everything here’. She went as far as engraving the words on the coffin, placed artfully in the middle of the wall for all to see. Like the title at the top of a music sheet. Not so dumb an image. In that room, I felt that she played Sherlock like she would an instrument (the countdown set up the pace of her musical composition and, like a true conductor, she would be in charge of the tone of the piece ”Softer, Sherlock”).
But I digress. As I said, the lid of the coffin is a dramatic way of announcing what was to come. This was more than an I Love You scene. This was The I Love You Test.
Now. And this is where it gets quite good.
If hurting both Sherlock and Molly by making her believe that he was in love with her but actually wasn’t was the purpose, Eurus could have just urged him to say the words to save her life by changing the deal to:
Molly must say ‘I love you too’.
In fact, that would have been ideal. Sherlock would have been horrified at the prospect. Perhaps once and for all associating love with destruction and it being the ultimate emotional manipulation. He would have said I love you, we know he would have. He would have done anything to save her, as we all witnessed.
Three possible outcomes:
He says it and doesn’t mean it: Molly is happy and says the words back. She’s saved. But Sherlock loses her forever in the aftermath.
He says it and doesn’t mean it. Molly doesn’t believe him and therefore doesn’t say it back. More likely since she can see ‘through his bullshit’. As we know, there was no bomb. She is still saved. But Sherlock loses her forever in the aftermath.
He says it and means it and Molly says it back. They live happily ever after and have plenty of babies.
Actually, I’m fine with option 3 😂
Eurus didn’t do it like that. She sees things ´beyond the scope’. She knew Molly would want Sherlock to say it first. Say it like he means it. As many of you noticed, Eurus aka The Therapist heard John mention that Molly would be able to tell. Eurus doesn’t understand love, or what it looks like. Unlike Molly, I am personally unaware if she is able to see through Sherlock’s acting skills at first glance.
Choosing Molly is a smart choice.
Not only because I truly believe Eurus suspects she is Sherlock’s hidden heart, his overlooked pressure point, but also because Molly would be the only one able to confirm if yes or no, he really meant it. Or at the very least sounded like he did. Molly Hooper is Eurus’ very own living and breathing lie-detector. Perfect to confirm her suspicions. If the cameras have been there for a while, she probably witnessed Sherlock coming in and out of Molly’s house and take her bed. That enigmatic out-of-the-blue anecdote finally makes sense if you see it that way. She suspects that Sherlock is in love with Molly Hooper. He just doesn’t know it yet. The I Love You Test, him saying the words, is evil and perfect for her emotionally constipated brother to come to the same conclusion.
In fact, when Molly orders him to say the words first, Sherlock does a double take and turns automatically to his sister. As if to say: So this is what you were after.
From a villain’s perspective, this is by far the best option for Eurus to spread havoc in her wake and make her point. As we could see, both parties ended up miserable. Molly thinks Sherlock made fun of her and Sherlock must now deal with waaay more feelings than he thought he had before entering the room. Not to mention the fact that he hurt a very dear friend and perhaps lost the woman he might just be in love with. A love hidden in plain sight. Well, he always misses something, doesn’t he?
And worse? It was all for nothing. His sister knows this is the best way to get to him. Push the right buttons. Break the walls he so carefully constructed around himself ever since Redbeard. A point of no return.
Mark Gatiss said it: Molly is ‘very Key’. The one person that mattered, that counted, that could ultimately make Sherlock Holmes scream in despair. Destroy a coffin with his bare hands out of helplessness, rage, confusion, sorrow.
The coffin is a nice analogy, actually.
By breaking the coffin, by tuning out everything else and expressing his agony over hurting someone he deeply cared about, he marked the demise of his former self. Forever gone is the High-Functioning Sociopath, for all the world to see. Molly is The Key. Eurus opened him up with it. With her. Vivisection. You go, Eurus. You’re horrible. But thank you 😊
Lastly, I will add that yes, I do believe he does love her in a romantic way. Why?
From a pure storytelling point of view, suggesting otherwise would mean Eurus (and the writers) have been staging the hell of a show just so he would admit to something that everybody already knew. That he loves her as a friend. ‘You’re my friend, we’re friends.’ Would be a bit anti-climatic, don’t you think?
If anything, I think this episode was about confirming as well as exposing Sherlock’s love in every shape or form to the audience.
Familial = > Mycroft (last test of Sherrinford), Rosie (proud, tender and playful godfather at the end of the episode) and Eurus (Seek my Room).
Friendship = > John (the well), Mrs. Hudson, (whom he wants to protect from the explosion at 221B), Victor (he had a best friend in his early years and loved him very much), Lestrade (he calls him Greg).
Sexual History (perhaps romantic?) => Irene (the music he composed for her on his violin).
Romantic love => Molly (I love you).
I will conclude with BC’s words that sum up Sherlock’s growth quite well throughout The Final Problem. And in hindsight, what ‘Sherlock’ has been about since Day One:
Love is real-absolutely real-and, like water, it’s the most gentle and most powerful force in the Universe. It’s free and formless until it pours into its recipient, until we let it in.— Guillermo del Toro
