find yourself a best friend who looks at you the same way maui looks at moana

  • Alec [about Camille]: Does she still love you?
  • Magnus: I don't think so. She wasn't very pleasant the last time I saw her. Of course, that could be because I've got an eighteen-year-old boyfriend with a stamina rune and she doesn't.
  • Alec: *sputters*
  • Alec: As the person being objectified, I ... object to that description of me.

                  Captain.
                                   ……It’s him.

hellojadeasian  asked:

do you think there is a connection between some episodes ago when Yurio talks about Victor not being able to suprise the world and ep 7 when Victor wants to SUPRISE Yuri with a kiss? Thanks ♡ - kawaiiinthestreets

Oh, absolutely. We’ve explored Yuuri’s journey through discovering love, but I suspect soon we’re going to learn Victor has a journey of his own going on. (But that is another meta for another time.) The themes there are motivation and surprise, and they’re interconnected.

What’s the one word we hear him say over and over and over again?

WOW = I’m surprised!

Victor is emotionally moved when he’s surprised. This does it for him. It excites him, makes him glow with happiness, magically transforms his mouth into the shape of a heart, and keeps him motivated. Yuuri gives him those things regularly, and Victor eats it up.

Now flip this around and understand that when Victor associates happiness and motivation with surprise, it’s natural for him to want to show his own love to other people in a similar way.

When he surprises Yuuri, the message there is: “Hey, you make me feel wonderful. I want you to have that feeling, too.”

Surprise is one of Victor’s love languages. 

(And PS - Yuuri knows it.)

… “Chairman Yu must keep turning back to look. He’d be worried about you. That’s why… The ones left behind should live even harder. We might cry from time to time, but we should smile a lot and cheer up. You’re obligated to do that in return for the love you received.”

If you think Alex Danvers is going to keep her relationship with Maggie Sawyer a secret at the start, you are wrong. Everyone at the DEO will know about her girlfriend in less than a day. She talks so much about her that J'onn and all the other agents start avoiding her cause they are tired of it.

Even rogue aliens incarcerated there will be tired of hearing about Maggie. She talks about Maggie while interrogating them, she talks about Maggie while beating them up, she talks about Maggie while they threaten to destroy the earth.

They are so tired of hearing about how amazing Maggie is they are just like “Just take me back to my cell I will kill myself if I have to hear one more word about how cute Maggie’s dimples are.”

Alex punches them in the face, because rude, before taking them back to their cell and going to talk to Winn. At least he only rolls his eyes but is too scared for anything else.

I’m reading the hidden oracle and I literally can’t handle these two 

 You’re nice and an amazing chef —— there’s no way I’m letting you go. 

I am literally in love with the fact I get to see how my little cousins interact even with a language barrier. On my mom’s side, I have a 3 year old little cousin who only speaks French, and on my dad’s side I have a 2 year old cousin who only speaks Spanish. When they play together it is so funny to see them blabber on and on to each other until one of them hears a word that sounds familiar and then they just repeat that word and nod like they’re totally connecting. Like today the one that speaks Spanish said “Venga a poner los pantalones en la muneca!” and the other heard “pantalones” and was just like “Oui, pantalon!” They’re best friends and it’s the cutest and funniest thing I’ve ever seen.

Going to school in a predominantly Christian area includes:

1. Rebellious fist grade club of secret Pokémon. We designed our own so that our parents wouldn’t catch on

2. “Hey, have you read Harry Potter yet?” “No, I’m not allowed to, my mom thinks it’s satanic.”

3. *singing* “Father Abraham, had many sons.”

4. Pure terror the first time one of my friends said they were not a Christian and me crying because they were going to hell.

5. I struggled to stay focused in class, so the teacher’s solution was big, clunky, embarrassing head phones that just made it worse (second grade)

6. The first time one of your friends goes “hey, wanna hear a bad word?” And you feel a sinking pit of shame in your stomach

7. “Hey, you’re smart, is ketchup a smoothie?”

8. “See you in church!” Then later, “see you in school!”

9. Veggie Tales.

10. The first time one of your friends come out to you and you have to protect them from the kid who is convinced that to turn him straight we just need to douse him in holy water and exorcise him. (Slight exaggeration, but he did think that. Also that Steven universe was shoving the gay Agenda down people’s throats)

11. You never realize how many of your friends are catholic until Friday night sleepovers during lent.

12. Talking our parents’ politics in fourth grade.

13. They take you to a church during an evacuation.

14. Your sixth grade bible study is the most lit.

15. “Oh wheeeeeeerrrrrrrrreeeeee is my hairbrush?” chorus response back of “oh WHEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEE IS MY HAIRBRUSH!?!”

[[forgiveness]]

a morning CS drabble, spec for 6x13 (or whenever Killian tells Emma)

“Our family is… complicated,” Emma sighed, wrapping her arms around Killian’s waist and drawing him near.

“That’s one word for it.” She could hear the self-loathing in his tone. He wanted her to get angry, she thought. He wanted her to lash out, punish him, maybe kick him out of his own home. But why would she do a thing like that when she knew he was suffering over this?

“It sucks. I know it does. I won’t pretend that Dad won’t be pissed about it for a while. But he’ll forgive you.”

“How can you be so sure?”

“Because I know my family. And we are there for each other. Forgiveness is kinda our thing. Or have you forgotten about how we’ve all accepted Regina into this family after everything she did?” He still looked conflicted, logic warring with his guilt and heartache. “How many times do I need to tell you that you aren’t the same man you were? You’re good, Killian. And you’re an important part of this family.”

“You would love the man who murdered your grandfather?”

She shook her head, leaning forward to rest her head on his chest, half because she needed the physical connection, half to offer him privacy as his eyes glazed over.

“No. I love the man who regrets it.”

Sam knows a code word when he hears one. Hell, he and Dean have about a hundred or so words and phrases and hand gestures that they’ve accumulated over the years to make a language all of their own. It’s not hard to figure out when something means something else entirely.

Which is how Sam finds out about Dean and Cas’ “secret” relationship. 

The first time Dean asked Cas if he wanted to “play Scrabble,” Sam didn’t really think much of it. Dean and Cas disappeared to do random shit all the time. They were, after all, best friends and pretty much attached at the hip.

But then Dean asked again a couple days later. Then Cas asked. Then Sam realized.

They would disappear into Dean’s room to “play Scrabble,” and then they would come out two hours later looking angry or exhausted or smug or any other emotion to describe that they had just fucked.

Sam elected to ignore it. He didn’t really care if Dean and Cas were secretly fucking as long as they were happy. If things got serious, they would tell him.

That is, until one day Sam walks into Dean’s room without waiting for a “come in” and finds Dean and Cas–

“What the fuck are you guys doing?”

They both look up at him with wide eyes. Dean holds a little wooden letter in his hand and responds, “What does it look like we’re doing?”

“It looks like you’re playing Scrabble.”

“Yeah. Didn’t you hear us say we were going to play Scrabble like an hour ago?” Dean puts his letter down, and Sam sees the word “bullet” written on the board.

“So…that wasn’t…a code word?”

Cas answers this time, “Why would Dean and I need a code word at home when it is only the three of us here?”

“Because you’re–you’re–never mind.” Sam slams the door behind him before they can say anything else.

Muffled through the door, he hears Dean say, “Oh my god, dude, I think Sammy thought you and I were having sex.”

Different types of SMIRKS~

Ah, the smirk. Every young adult novel, teenage girl and fanfiction’s favorite and overused verb to use for a male character because a man who has that smug and infuriating smile is unbelievably attractive to the female audience for some reason.

Out of curiosity, I googled up the exact definition of the word “smirk” and they defined it as “smile in an irritatingly smug, conceited, or silly way.”

I was annoyed with how they had such a generalizing and basic description because growing up, I have seen this word used for all sorts of context and each time, there is a new, hidden meaning behind that smile/sneer/leer. 

                                                          o0o0o0o

SO HERE IS A LIST I MADE:

1) The cliche I-Am-Better-Than-You-And-I-Will-Make-Sure-You-Know-It Smirk

This smirk is the one most often used and thought of when people hear the word. You know that one person you’re competing with whether it be sports, exam scores, martial arts, etc? And that one smile that shows that they know they’re just better, smarter and more skilled than you in every way? That is smirk number 1 right there.

2) The I-Am-A-Sassy-And-Snarky-Bastard Smirk

You see that annoying and utterly majestic guy sitting in front of you? Maybe a thought crossed his mind or you probably said something embarrassingly stupid. Either way, he will always have a smart-ass response for you along with a sarcastic or dry smile to accompany it, knowing he had just roasted you and you need some ice for that burn. That is smirk number 2. 

3) The Amused-Half-Smile Smirk

This smirk does not necessarily have a negative connotation. You probably entertained that guy in some way that he can’t help but crack a smile of pure and genuine amusement. If not entertainment, you or someone had made that person change their opinion of you and especially in a positive manner. Somehow, smirk number 3 is just so charming and can induce stomach flutters, you really cannot get mad. 

4) The Crooked-Smile Smirk

This smirk is solely reserved for flirting and hooking up. That awkward yet cute smile he flashes you when he thinks he looks cool while trying to buy you a drink. It can show some teeth, but not an outright grin. That is smirk number 4. 

5) The I-Have-The-Upper-Hand-And-You-Fucked-Up-Smirk

You are in deep shit when you see this smirk. Unlike smirk number 1, your life is probably in danger here and you are on the losing end against a chess-master. You lost. Everything went according to his plans and now you are in the palm of his hands and at his mercy. That dangerous and sinister smile is smirk number 5.

6) The I-Am-Eye-Sexing-You-Smirk

See that dirty and perverted guy who looks like he is fucking your body by just looking at you? You see that shameless and horny smile while you receive nudes from him? This smile can either make you want to hop into bed with him or just run with goosebumps. That is smirk number 6. 

7) The I-Fucked-Up Smirk

You are fine. The guy seemingly confident and haughty is clearly not. Not when that weird and supposed smirk looks strained and he is sweating bullets. That’s right. He messed up in this game between the two of you and he is trying to put up a brave front, but failing miserably. That is smirk number 7.

8) The Cheshire-Cat-Grin Smirk

He just trolled and manipulated you real good and he is having a grand time seeing you struggle your way out of problems. He will dodge any question or demands you have and he will always have that mischievous, I-am-up-to-no-good look on his face. Overall, clearly untrustworthy. That is smirk number 8. 

9) The I-Am-About-To-Kick-Your-Ass-Real-Good Smirk

Run. You won’t get that far, but it was worth a try. Smirk number 9 is just downright full of bloodlust and murder is going to happen. 

10) The I-Am-Hot-As-Hell-And-I-Know-It Smirk

He is sexy. He knows it. He is handsome. He knows it. He has fangirls dropping to their knees at the sight of him. He knows it. If he wasn’t let’s say, a serial killer, he could have been a supermodel…and he knows it.
It’s written all over his face. That overconfident and cheeky smile is smirk number 9. 

And that wraps things up. Feel free to add more~
