mine:happy endings

OKAY BUT imagine a future where team voltron is like coming home and Kieth and lance are going to lances family to stay, hunk is going to his family, pidge and Matt are going to reunite with their mother, and shiro is kinda nervous bc last time he came to earth he got sedated and ignored. So. He asks the holts if he can stay over there and they’re like ‘sure why tf not" and so he and Matt and pidge are about to land when they realize they’re surrounded by earth military and shiro kinda flips shit. But. This ain’t the garrison and these guys welcome shiro and the holts back and brief them and basically they say that they informed the world or whatever and that earth is going to thank them for their service with a gala or some shit

Shiro can’t dance very well

And also needs a date

SO he goes and asks Allura bc she’s a ‘leading lady’, and she’s like “what the fuck is a dance” and so they practice and shit and its really cute and couple-y and at the party they get oohs and aahs bc they’re the literal most pretty people in the universe and Keith and lance dance together and pidge and Matt do a nerdy brother sister dance and they also help hunk wrangle shay in too and coran is studying the human interactions off in the corner like a nerd and then some random dude comes up and asks him to dance and it’s all happily ever after

GOD I’m a piece of shit

Sometimes lesbians do get happy endings. 

Mum wasn’t going to come to my wedding. It was hard, but I’d made peace with that. My girlfriend and I would get married without her blessing. 

Then, two days before the big day, when we were already in New Zealand, I got a frantic call at 11pm at night. I answered it and it was her, crying and asking if she’d still be welcome. We said yes, of course, and she booked herself last minute flights to get to New Zealand. 

When I first saw her outside the registry, all dressed up with her hair done and holding flowers, I burst into tears. She came up to me and touched my face, saying, “You look so happy. Both of you, you look so happy,” and gave us these roses.

They’re more than flowers to me. 

They’re given to me by a women to cried and shouted and refused to talk about my sexuality for seven years after I came out to her. It may not seem like much: but she had to walk into that flower store and buy these. She had to choose roses - the symbol of love - for her gay daughter and her gay daughter’s ‘friend’. There’s an admission in that. There’s acceptance in that. These roses say, “I know you love each other,” and she gave them to us at our wedding, which she flew three thousand kilometres to attend. 

I sobbed as she placed them in my hand. 

Because nothing will ever touch what it feels like to finally, finally know your mother loves you just the way you are. 

If you like Friends but want a more updated version, you should watch Happy Endings:

Happy Endings is a beautiful show that was canceled too soon. But more importantly, it is so much like an updated version of Friends that one of the characters even calls them each by their friends equivalent at one point (while drugged after going to the dentist…obviously).

Your new Monica is Jane Kerkovich-Williams: a bisexual goddess control freak

Jane’s sister, Alex, literally runs out on her own wedding in the pilot. Also in the fashion world (owns her own shop).

Then there’s Penny, who is the wacky single girl friend (definitely a less dramatic backstory than Phoebe… )

Waiting for new Joey? Look no further than Max, the gay/jewish player.

Thinking, “Hey, I could do without a Ross”? Well, don’t worry. Dave is definitely sometimes a jerk but in no way as creeptastic as Mr. Friendzone Divorce Guy. Also, he’s the chef of the group, you know, some things have to change.

Go, watch, be happy. All episodes are on hulu, last I checked. This is an easy show to plow through and definitely worth it. 

When they’re kids, one of El’s favourite games is tracing words onto her friends’ backs and making them guess what she’s spelling. Mike and Lucas are really good at guessing; Dustin and Will, not so much.

When they’re older, Mike traces pictures onto El’s back at night because it helps her fall asleep. Just as she’s nodding off, Mike always traces the same eight letters: I-L-O-V-E-Y-O-U. El always falls asleep smiling.

xaandiir  asked:

Does the brain scan chair kill the person that uses it? My friend and I have been arguing if it would actually kill Hilbert after the brain scan or not.

No, it does not. It works like backing up files from your computer to a cloud storage system - the files are created and accessible to someone far away, but your computer still has all the information. Your computer still runs. 

(Of course… knowing Cutter, the process of the brain scan is probably much more painful than performing a file backup, but that’s neither here nor there)

After all… from the script for Happy Endings… 

One of the things that Cutter seems to relish about the chair is that after he used it Hilbert would be left, by himself, having to face the knowledge that he would just be adrift in space, with no one coming to save him, with nothing to do, and with no semblance of relevance anywhere in his future. 

The fact that the brain scan doesn’t kill you is an important feature of the chair.

You know what I want? I want Lancelot, Arthur, Gwen, Merlin and Morgana all in a happy polyamourous relationship. 

Arthur and Morgana are both the King of Camelot, because fuck gender roles. Gwen is the queen in title, but she’s more like the chief of justice and she does most of the trials and sentencing. Merlin is the the court magician and takes on the role of court physician after Gaius’ passing. Lancelot and Arthur take alternate weeks in leading the army. Lancelot, Merlin and Gwen take turns looking after Arthur and Gwen’s (but actually everybody’s because love makes a family) kid. Merlin and Morgana control magical affairs but they often clash on important points so obviously sometimes they just have to lock themselves in a unused room for a day and ‘have it out.’ 

Merlin always goes with Arthur when he has to go protect the people of Albion or go on quests. He makes sure the king eats and sleep, and he holds his hand a lot, which makes Arthur feel braver. Whenever Arthur’s gone, Morgana brings Gwen fresh flowers every morning to cheer her up, because she knows she worries. 

Morgana wasn’t sure about Lancelot at first, but eventually they develop a sort of easy cameraderie. She realises that they’re a lot more similar than she originally thought, and when Lancelot’s depression gets especially bad, it’s usually Morgana who’s able to talk him off the ledge. 

Merlin and Gwen never really get ‘romantic’ with each other, but they have a sort of qpp relationship. Whenever Morgana’s nightmares get especially bad, they cuddle up on either side of her in her bed and sing to her until she falls asleep. Arthur brings Morgana breakfast in bed the next morning looking sheepish. 

Gwen’s the only one who has a baby, a little girl. When she tells everybody that she’s pregnant, they all pile on for a group hug until Morgana shrieks out that they’ll squash the baby. Morgana and Lancelot are each holding of Gwen’s hands when she gives birth (Arthur is at the end of the bed, catching the baby). Merlin’s the only one who’s not there which is only because he’s walking around casting a protection charm over the entire castle because nothing, absolutely nothing, is going to hurt this child and her mama. Nobody ever lets him forget that he, the official court physician, was the only one to miss Gwen’s childbirth. 

This little girl grows up with so much love. She’s magical, of course, and Merlin and Morgana teach her how to use her powers as soon as she’s old enough to sit up. Every time he catches them Arthur mutters something about Uther rolling over in his grave, which Morgana promptly follows with a swift kick to his shin and a hi-five for Merlin. They also teach her to slow dance, but only because she demands that they do after she walks in on them in a fog of potion and magic, turning slowly in time with an enchanted harp. Morgana’s also the best at stories, but she’s also volatile, and as the child grows up she becomes adept at comforting her and keeping her in the light. The little girl never feels happier than when she’s squashed between her two mamas, giggling and playing dress up with pretty scarves and the royal jewels and watching from under soft fabric while Gwen strokes Morgana’s soft hand and Morgana runs her hands through Gwen’s curls. Gwen is the stable parent, the one who brushes her daughter’s hair every morning and teaches her to read, but she’s also a pretty badass mum and she takes the baby to trials with her in a sling. Arthur usually comes to her room after supper and tucks her in bed, and she can’t sleep without a tickly forehead kiss. Lancelot teaches his baby girl to fight and he shows her that it’s okay not to be okay all the time. Sometimes Arthur tries to help, but he and Lancelot usually end up sword fighting and then snogging, and their daughter just tiptoes away grinning, because, like, those are her dads and they make each other so happy. Arthur has been known to lock up schoolyard bullies when they make his girl cry. 

Gwaine and Percival are happily married (to each other, of course) but they usually come over for dinner at the round table. Lancelot is almost always seated between Merlin and Gwen because he still needs help feeling happy and they’re the best at cheering him up. Gwaine and Percival always have to sit next to each other, because they hold hands under the table. Morgana and Arthur sword fight in the dining room over who gets to sit next to Merlin (Morgana usually wins. She doesn’t mind when she doesn’t, because Gwen lets her sit on her lap). Arthur likes to escort Gwen into the dining room and pull out her chair, because chivalry isn’t dead, and Gwen really loves it when he shows some humility. 

Also Kilgarrah refuses to attend the wedding because he’s pissed off that they’re now five sides to the same coin. The final straw comes when Gwained turns up drunk and argues that he and Percival should be included, because they pretty much live with the others anyway, and the dragon flies away in a huff complaining about ‘seven fucking sides to the same fucking coin. He always comes back to give the princess joy rides, though.
