no one must ever know about our love

Twenty years ago there was a life for each of us
to turn away from
or embrace. A song returns to remind me
of what I must have felt,
and when it’s over, I play it back again.
Each time it’s true.
Don’t we look beautiful in the picture
no one ever took,
the clear sky unfurled above us, the wind
ruffling our hair,
everybody’s real life just about to begin?

Lawrence Raab, section 1 of “The Uses of Nostalgia,” What We Don’t Know About Each Other (Penguin Books, 1993)

Ok but Coming Home

And Omega! Buckys favorite thing about being with Alpha!Tony is all the Sweet names he calls him. Every time they kiss Tony calls him Sweet thing and darling and perfect and lovely and Bucky just loves it so much.

So Coming Home, and Tony hasn’t stepped out of his lab in days because he is obsessed with this suit that will keep him safe. His wings are damaged so he keeps them folded to his back, with straps around them so they can’t open at all. He’s so disgusted by the glowing thing in his chest and how it’s changed his scent, that he’s taken to wearing hoodies all the time that don’t let the glow of the arc reactor show, and hide most of his wings from sight. He has to work himself to the point of collapse, or drink until he can’t see straight just to get some sleep.

And he doesn’t come near his Omegas at all, too damaged of an Alpha to think they want him.

But when he falls asleep in his lab, Bucky is the only one who JARVIS will let in, because Bucky will pick Tony up and curl up on the couch with him. Bucky covers them with his black and silver wings, presses his face close to Tonys neck and just talks to him— my alpha, I love you. Good strong alpha. Brave wonderful alpha. I always knew you’d come home, I knew you’d beat whoever had kidnapped you. Sweet alpha, perfect for us, perfect for our family. My alpha, mine—

And Tony doesn’t ever know why he some times wakes up on the couch, but he always feels a lot better than when he fell asleep, and even though he asks JARVIS what happens, the AI tells him he must have made it to the couch before passing out.

Tony doesn’t think anything about it until he wakes up one morning and there’s a few black feathers Lying around him.

Then he checks the footage and sees that almost every night for months Bucky has been holding him and talking to him while he sleeps.

That night when Bucky picks him up and carries him to the couch, Tony doesn’t say anything but he turns and curls closer to Bucky, closer beneath those black wings and cries all his hurt out.

And Bucky holds him and whispers all the sweet things he’d been saying all along.

Full Circle - Chapter One

This is my new muti-chapter story. Thank you to @ailingnoor for so kindly proof-reading for me. It follows Owen and Amelia from the final scene of 14x05 and how their lives play out dealing with their separation, dating, their friendship… It is canon to the current story-line but I have adapted it to fit with my own twists and turns. I really hope you enjoy it! 😘😘😘😘 Reviews and comments are always welcome! 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙


Time moves differently, differently than it used to. Seconds, minutes, hours and days all feel longer, but at the same time they are all passing by so quickly, too quickly. If freedom makes you feel free then why do I feel so trapped? It is as though my life has stopped but the lives of those around me keep on moving. I am back to square one, though this time it isn’t because of my broken sobriety. It is my broken heart. People come and go from your life all the time, I know that better than anyone – but I ran away from the one person I vowed never to leave. It might have been the tumour- I think it was the tumour, but I will never know for sure. That is something I have learned to live with, the not knowing. If I myself don’t know what was me and what was the tumour, how could Owen possibly know? He was right- we don’t know each other, not anymore. As I am reassessing and questioning every decision I made over the last ten years, I know Owen was… is real. I remember how I felt when we sat in chapel, the first kiss, the first night, our first official date, the proposal- I know because when I look at him now those feelings are still there. It’s confusing and it’s complicated but I look at Owen and I see the life I want, the life I told myself I was too damaged to deserve. But he deserves to be happy. I don’t know if his happiness involves me, but I know that right now, he can’t find that out if I’m always there with him. He needs the time to figure out what he wants, we both do.

anonymous asked:

Hi! I absolutely love your blog and a lot of the stories I've read have come as recs from you. I was wondering if you could help me out? I was reading a fanfic last night where Grimmrauld Place was upset with Harry for mistreating it and him and Draco fix it up. It was wonderful and I was wondering if you had any recs for more like it? I adore the idea of Harry and Draco not being friends at first and then bonding over a project like that. 💕

Sorry that it has taken me a while to respond, life caught me by surprised for a bit ^^’’

But aww, that’s so very sweet of you to say, oh my word, thank you!

Oh I remember that fic (and if anyone wants to read it you can find it here) and it was a rather nice one. I should probably have created a tag for enemies to lovers, since I do like those fics, but I just never did. So let’s see how many I can find, shall we?

All Life is Yours to Miss: Professor Malfoy’s world is contained, controlled, and as solitary as he can make it, but when an act of petty revenge goes horribly awry, he and his trusty six-legged friend are thrown into Hogwarts life at the deep end and must learn to live, love and let go.

​All Our Secrets Laid Bare: Over the six years Draco Malfoy has been an Auror, four of his partners have turned up dead. Harry Potter is assigned as his newest partner to investigate just what is going on. 

The Case of the Cherry Blossoms: If Hermione knows one thing, it’s that Harry needs to talk to her about what she thinks she knows. Harry knows something is afoot, and Ron knows that the breakfast situation is critical. HPDM and HGRW AU 7th-year fluffy!verse. Fairly daft.

Closing: Draco won’t ever give up. Won’t give up on making his fortune back, his ownership of the now deserted Malfoy Manor and certainly won’t give up on trying to stop Potter from selling Grimmauld Place.

The Conservation of Fame: Harry has peace at last under a spell that keeps people from remembering he’s the Chosen One, until Malfoy stumbles through his wards, pursued by mysterious enemies. Harry has to help him, and possibly bring his peace crashing down. 

Cornucopia: When he receives an offer from Potter to restore the Black fortune, Draco is determined to ferret out the Git-Who-Lived’s real reasons.

Harmonized Consciousness: [NOW EDITED AND COMPLETE HPDM 8th Year EWE] This time it’s a spell gone wrong in Charms that will bring our two favourite boys together. Expect Mind-Magic Classic HD Clichés & Soul Mates

The Heart of the Manor: In his efforts to remove the taint Voldemort left on the Manor, Draco hires a team of Curse-Breakers. But what will happen when they stumble upon something older and more insidious than simple Dark magic?

In the Company of a Rubber Duck: War makes for strange bedfellows. However that doesn’t fully explain how Harry ended up sharing his bath with Draco Malfoy… nor why Malfoy was a rubber duck at the time.

Lonely Moon: More than a decade after the Battle, Harry returns to Hogwarts as a professor and discovers a student with a familiar face and an unexpected past. HPDM. Compliant with everything except DH epilogue.

​measures of our days and nights: Draco returns to London to help the Ministry decipher a spell, but things aren’t quite as simple as they seem. 

Nine Days’ Wonder: HPDM, mostly preslash. In which Harry is the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, and really not interested in Malfoy’s snippy little firecalls about Scorpius. Really. COMPLETE.

Now The Shining Sun Is Up: Epilogue, What Epilogue? About five years after the battle of Hogwarts. Someone at the Ministry has it in for former Death Eaters. Draco Malfoy launches his political career as a rebel. Harry thinks it’s all a laugh.

Of Love and Creatures: The Gryffindors and Slytherins become reluctant parents of a particularly feisty breed of magical creatures. Naturally, Harry and Draco are partnered together. Expect romance and chaos in equal measure. slash HD, RHr. PreHBP, now AU. COMPLETE!

On a Clear Day: Draco Malfoy is waiting for his real life to begin, and it appears that he’s not the only one. Coffee, charity, and the wisdom of the elderly. HPDM. Oneshot of epic proportions.

Rarely Pure and Never Simple: Harry never thought taking a job as Draco Malfoy’s bodyguard was going to be easy. Add in a curse that makes Malfoy even more of an obnoxious git than usual, and Harry’s got serious problems. 

Second Chance: Of all the possible ways he could die Draco never would have thought a single olive would lead to his demise. But when he is offered a second chance at life he eagerly accepts. Too bad his second chance comes with an unexpected condition.

​Sex on Legs in Six-Inch Heels: Draco Malfoy is a brilliant freelance cursebreaker and the only one who can help the Department of Magical Law Enforcement with a very dangerous case, but more importantly, he’s wearing six-inch heels, and Harry cannot handle it, he really just can’t. 

Secrets: Beginning with Draco’s unexpected arrival at the Dursleys, Harry’s summer becomes filled with activity and many secrets. He generates several unexpected allies as he finds himself actively becoming the leader of the Light side. H/D post-HBP ~Complete~

Take the Air: Someone or something is attacking Muggles and leaving them for dead. Auror Harry Potter is assigned to the case, but with his usual partner unavailable, he is stuck with the most annoying Auror ever to walk the halls of the Ministry. 

This Side of Me: Saving his mortal enemy in a moment of insanity Draco is suddenly labelled a hero. Floundering in a new life and hiding from Death Eaters with Harry he finds that his allegiance isn’t the only thing that’s changed DH COMPLETE

The Voldemort Manor: The Malfoy Manor is a state run museum, renamed The Voldemort Manor by the Ministry for Magic. As part of his probation, Draco is assigned as sole caretaker. When the Manor hosts a series of high class events celebrating the Wizarding World’s fourth Yuletide season Post War, it brings with it a swathe of people Draco hasn’t seen in years; including one, Harry Potter.

Welcome to the Real World: A Harry/Draco romance, set post-Hogwart’s in muggle London. Includes red mittens, linoleum, witty retorts, angst, love, dance clubs, strange friends, cooking shows, and coffee not necessarily in that order!

Most of these are Post-Hogwarts, just a warning. I hope some of these are what you are looking for and happy reading!

What It’s Like to be an INFJ (in GIFs)

Sometimes it’s a miracle that any words come out of our mouths at all. So. Hard. To. Articulate. INFJ thoughts are complex and abstract. You have no idea. The internal frustration…

External image

We read people like books, and have to constantly act as though the things they reveal about themselves are shocking to us. Really, our intuition probably picked up on it before you did.

External image

We predict things and watch them come together. We take bets with ourselves. Always being right about people is nice.

Even though we encourage you to share your heart with us as we will love you no matter what you tell us (probably), on the inside we are judging you at the same time. We are INFJs after all.

External image

Small talk kills us on the inside. Sometimes we’ll endure it if we think you have intellectual or emotional potential, but chances are we’re mentally elsewhere entirely. We don’t get enough credit for our complex auto-pilot responses that are seemingly so genuine!

External image

We are too comfortable being by ourselves. Knowing we’re going to be home alone is a rush of ecstasy.

External image

You like parties? Sure, but we get our thrill from books.

The panic before an unavoidable social situation, even though you’ve known about it for months. 

External image

We don’t like telling our deepest, darkest secrets to our friends – yet somehow our online friends make an exception.

We have all sorts of strange beliefs that our friends think are weird.

When we’re in a public place with a really clever book that we love, and people praise us for being so intelligent and complex. Oh, this old Proust novel is just some light reading ;)

External image

When we try to explain something deep to someone and they act like we’re some kind of alien. Really, it is simple if you could try to be open-minded for just one second, uh.

 

Finding that one person who just understands us, and we don’t have to try hard to communicate because they just already know.

External image

External image

People are often put off by our odd sense of humour – except those couple who think we are the most hilarious creatures ever, and they say “where did you even come up with that?”

External image

External image

Finding that one person who we can’t figure out the way we do everyone else. It must be love. Or a psychopath. We are mesmerized – it doesn’t happen often (probably an ENTP).

That unexplainable relationship we have with ENTPs. Sigh. What is it about them, anyway?

External image

External image

People assume that we’re sweet because we’re feelers, but we’re secretly cold and evil too. We are so underestimated.

External image

External image

We get lost in our own minds – our sole existence is internal. In our inner worlds we are truly free.

External image

We take comfort in remaining mysterious even to ourselves.

RIP Harris Wittels. 1984-2015.

There are so few people that you meet in life that give you that feeling that you’ve found a real unique, original person. Harris Wittels was one of those and we lost him yesterday. He was 30 years old. I’ve been devastated. 

I’m still waiting for the other phone call to let me know that Harris is okay and this was all a horrible misunderstanding. I don’t know when my brain is going to be able to process the terrible feeling that fills my heart with dread and my eyes with tears every 20 seconds when I realize this very special person is really gone.

So, I wanted to write something to share my stories about Harris and what he meant to me.

I first knew Harris as a standup. I’d have him open shows quite a bit, and he was always fantastic. As his career as a writer took off, he got busy. He’d say that he didn’t have time or wasn’t working on standup at the time. Sadly, he had just started back working his standup, which made me thrilled as a fan. His standup, like he his real life personality, was open, honest (way more honest than how most people refer to “honest” in their standup) and hilarious.

As a writer, we worked on two films that never saw the light of day. The first was Olympic Sized Asshole. The premise was Danny McBride and I were two best friends who lived in SC who’s girlfriends had a three way with a super handsome star Olympic athlete (think Channing Tatum). We did a rough outline of it together and then Harris went off to write the script.

Around this time in my career, I was very puzzled by film scripts. None of the ones I read ever made me laugh. I figured that I must not know how to read scripts properly. Maybe these things were funnier in person than on the page.

Then I got Harris’ first draft of Olympic.

Every page had a huge laugh. I couldn’t believe it. Jody Hill and I called each other and were just rolling about our favorite jokes.

I was DYING.

Here’s a little chunk I found looking through old notes. The script was just full of great jokes like this:

Another bit I loved was when Danny’s character and my character pitch a business idea in the beginning of the movie. 

There was also a part that would be played by Paul Giamatti. I think this was something he just added as a last minute addition that wasn’t even in the outline.

Eventually the project faded away as many movie projects tend to do.

But, after that, any time I worked on anything, I insisted that Harris Wittels be one of the writers. He was the first name I asked for every time. When I worked on the MTV Movie Awards. Those Randy videos for Funny People. Anytime I did a dumb commercial. Any time I needed to get joke writers, I always asked for Harris to help because he was truly the best of the best. And I was so lucky that he always said yes.

Most jokes when read by “comedy people” don’t get a laugh per se. You just read it and go, “Oh that’s funny” and you understand it would get a laugh. You eventually just know how jokes are constructed and you aren’t as easily surprised. Harris was part of that rare breed where you wouldn’t see his shit coming. His jokes were so weird, unexpected, often brilliantly dumb that they were in that ultra-exclusive club of ones that made comedy people laugh — and laugh hard. This was why Harris was such a go-to for everyone. Anyone that was ever in a writers room with him knew he was probably the funniest comedy writer out there. He was just a machine.

Remember the Obama-Galifianakis Funny or Die video?

Galifianakis: So are you gonna run a third time?

Obama: I don’t think that’d be a very good idea. That’d be like making a third Hangover movie.

I thought that was by far the best joke in that thing and maybe any thing I watched last year. I found out today that it was a Wittels original. Of course. 

Harris was also known as “the chuffah king.” Chuffah is the random nonsense characters in a scene talk about before getting to the meat of it that leads to story. Here’s one of the best chuffah moments from Parks from the “Hunting Season” episode:

Tom: Your favorite kind of cake can’t be birthday cake, that’s like saying your favorite kind of cereal is breakfast cereal.

Donna: I love breakfast cereal.

Harris excelled at coming up with hilarious, random nonsense like this. It was a tool that no one else seemed to have. I’m not a big podcast listener, but today I found out this was also kind of the fuel for Harris Foam Corner (or Phone Corner) from Comedy Bang Bang podcast, here’s a playlist that is filled with this kind of hilarious/awful nonsense from Harris: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBB4729D88A16451A

Here’s some highlights I found on Tumblr today:

“One time I said to a guy that, ‘I loved learning new things. I’m a bit of an infomaniac.’ And he thought I said NYMPHOMANIAC….so he fucked me. And I said ‘No, no no…I said INFO. I’m an INFOmaniac’ And he said ‘Well, here’s some info…you just got fucked. Clean yourself up.’”

“I hate smoking sections. Unless it’s Jim Carrey’s The Mask. Then the smoking section is my favorite part!”

“I’m not getting married until gay people can get married. Because I’m gay.”

Imagine being around a guy who was this uniquely silly all the damn time. That’s what it was like being in a writers room with Harris. It was just bullshit like this non-stop. And it was the best.


After we failed to get Olympic off the ground, we had another idea called BIG TIME. This was about myself and another guy becoming super famous after a video of us saving a bunch of little black kids from a burning fire went viral. Again the plan was that Harris and I would draft a story (this time with our friend Jason Woliner) and then Harris would bang out the script.

One of my favorite Harris stories was before writing this script we’d pitch the story to studios. In one part of the pitch, we had a bit where the two leads became quasi-famous and started attending B-level celeb parties. In describing this scene in our practice session, Harris would say, “Guys like Chris Pontius would be there.” I’d say, “Alright Harris, none of these execs know who Chris Pontius from Jackass is, don’t say that.”

At that point, he knew he had me. Every pitch, and keep in mind these are important pitches with studio heads, etc. - I would lead and then as soon as I got to that scene, he would throw it in with glee, “you know, guys like Pontius would be there.” He even dropped the Chris and was just saying Pontius. Last name only. Jason and I were dying. 

Then, in an even more absurd move, he added a second part to this bit. During the pitch, he started saying,  "then the guys get famous and they do all the talk shows Letterman… Conan… Pontius Tonight…” To be clear, Pontius Tonight is a fictional show hosted by Chris Pontius that he made up just to make me laugh/fume. He said that execs would assume this was a real thing as to not seem out of touch. It was great. Harris would rather make all of us laugh than worry about jeopardizing these meetings.

He really seemed to relish getting laughs out of other comedians. Last night, the Parks writers staff and other friends shared Harris stories. One of my favorites was there was a serious email from NBC about a big sexual harassment seminar. Serious execs are CC’d along with Harris and the writers. Harris writes back, REPLY ALL, with this gem — now keep in mind EVERYONE is on this email, all the crew, so many higher level producers and execs, here we go:


As both our movies fizzled, Harris and I worked together on Parks and Rec. I was so thrilled when he got hired to be a writer and the episodes where he was on set were ones I looked forward to. A writer on set would pitch alternate jokes and help you if you didn’t feel a scene didn’t work, who better than Harris in that situation. Talking to other writers on the show today, it was clear Harris’ contribution to the world of Pawnee was immense. I’m sure he wrote many of the lines that made you laugh throughout the show.

Harris also eventually acted in the show as one of the animal control guys. Go on YouTube and watch this compilation, he is so hilarious in it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xkplbd_nQFs


I also want to say, besides being so unbelievably hilarious, Harris was truly a sweet guy. He was so lovable even when saying the most disgusting things. You just couldn’t help but love him. He had the most ridiculous opinions on everything from food to dating to music and he’d defend them to no end. He loved to make ridiculous boast that he insisted he could achieve. Here are a few that I compiled:

- Do as good a job as Trent Reznor scoring “The Social Network”
- Play against the Lakers and juke NBA point guard Steve Blake
- Hit an NBA 3-pointer
- Play right field in a Major League Baseball game, and catch a pop-up, and easily throw it back to the infield
- Act as well as any actor
- Every girl has, at minimum, a 20% crush on him

He was once adamant that he could taste the difference between all the major water bottle brands - and he did! He also once claimed he could beat anyone in the entire Parks offices at arm wrestling. Mike Schur gleefully egged him on: “Really, Harris? Anyone?” Harris said, “Yeah.” Then Mike beckoned John Valerio — a giant, muscular man with enormous arms – who worked in the editing department. Harris: “Shit! I forgot about Valerio. Come on, man!” Nevertheless, Harris went through with the match, put up a good fight, and was extremely gracious in defeat.

He was also kind of an odd ladies man in a way. Not blessed with a tall stature and traditional handsome guy stuff, he was able to transcend it all by being charming in an adorable/silly way. He was a romantic at heart. He once had a really big date. Someone way out of his league. His move - show up with a box of Russell Stovers chocolates. You know, the brand of chocolates of you get when you really want to impress a girl. He also once sent an e-vite to a girl’s heart. She declined. He once proposed to a woman on G-Chat. Genuinely.

Here’s some other random things I loved about him: He loved 311 and knew that the bassist’s name was P-Nut. He once had dinner with my parents and I in New York at a fancy restaurant and showed up in a suit that was 5 sizes too big. He looked like a kid dressing up in his dad’s clothes. Afterwards he turned to me and said, “Hey man, can you help me get a suit that fits?” His Tinder profile said, “I make money. I’ll buy you a couch.” We asked him why and he said, “Girls love couches.” He would always order the most unabashedly unhealthy, grossest thing at lunch. The most legendary being a burger he once ordered at Parks that had fried egg, bacon, avocado, onion rings (these are ON the burger FYI), BBQ sauce, and monterey jack cheese. He would take 4 things of mozzarella string cheese, line ‘em up, and melt it in the microwave. And then he’d eat this with a fork for a snack. I would always try to order healthy. Once I suggested a vegetarian place. After the email went out, I got a text from him “Guys this vegan place is an atrocity. Please reconsider.” He once left the writers office for lunch to eat at his house and texted my brother Aniz that he was “making Chili’s leftovers at home.” It really made me laugh that he chose the word “making” to describe heating up disgusting leftovers. He loved Chili’s but could never get anyone to join him. He would often go on solo missions. He once went to Chili’s by himself in Encino and Joe Mande asked him why Encino and not the closer one in Inglewood. He said, “The good one’s in Encino, you gotta go out to Encino.”

Weirdly, besides Parks, a lot of the stuff we worked on together never made it out into the world.

Another harsh part of this tragedy is that was all about to change.  Around the time Parks was ending, I started developing a new project with my friend Alan Yang, another writer on Parks. Immediately, we knew we wanted Harris to help us write it. We were lucky to get him on board and for the past 5 months or so, he’s been an integral part of this new project. He worked tirelessly and was a leader on our staff and we were all thrilled to be doing this thing that was actually going forward.

We knew Harris had issues with addiction but things were pointing in the right direction. He was getting treatment and focused on his career and the opportunities ahead. It all seemed to point in the right direction. We were all about to move to New York together in March to have great fun and make great work. He was excited. I was excited. It all seemed perfect. He just found an apartment on Monday.

Then, I got the most horrific phone call yesterday. I couldn’t comprehend it.

This week I spent a lot of time with Harris. On Monday he drove me to a dinner we were having. His iPod was on shuffle and every fucking song was a different Phish bootleg. I kept forcing him to skip until it was Phish maybe covering another more tolerable band’s song. Then we hit a band called Pralines and Dick. I told him this was particularly bad. He let me know it was his high school jam band and warned me about the upcoming 5 minute funk breakdown. I couldn’t help but enjoy it.  

I was so excited for what was ahead for Harris. I knew he was going to really explode after this new project. The little bit of Wittels comedy out there was just the tip of the tip of the iceberg. He had so much more to give and I was so excited for him. He seemed to be turning things around. He me asked for help finding a nutritionist. He said he knew nothing about nutrition. I informed him that I could confirm Chili’s is pretty bad for you. He even reluctantly ordered the “vegan bowl” for lunch the day before he passed when we were all writing together.

My last memory of him was from that day.

We were punching up a script. In punch up, you’re just trying to beat jokes that maybe aren’t landing. Everyone contributes and tries to beat the joke and you leave the best one in. But for us, what would happen is basically, all the writers would pitch something, then Harris would chime in with something so bizarre and hilarious, it would either make it in, or make us laugh and we’d agree it was the most hilarious, but probably too crazy. That last day, I remember I hit a line and we needed a better joke, I was exhausted. I turned to Harris and just wanted him to fix it so we could move on. I yelled “Harris! I need you, get off your phone. Make this joke better, fix it please.” And, of course, he did.

Bye Harris. I miss you and I’m glad I got to enjoy your genuinely amazing and original presence. I wish I got to you know even more. I hope people reading this realize what a incredibly unique man you were, and what brutal a loss it is for those who knew you and also for those who never had the pleasure. This has been so hard to write because I just keep wanting to add more and more stories and more jokes and more everything, but I’d never be able to finish it. You are far too special to sum up in any kind of piece like this. You were one of the best and we all will miss you.

Love,

Aziz

With Daniel off to college a household spot has opened up, which we immediately fill with another cat. This is Roux, a well-trained genius, destined to reach the top of her career way before dumbasses Ronron and Neo do. She looks a lot like Ronroneo too, which is a good thing since not 3 hours later..

WHAT THE FUCK. I’ve been giving him the pet food of life and his bar was nowhere near being full so this is some FUCKING BULLSHIT. 

Maybe double check your little catalog here??? Moron. Every other cat is having a breakdown about Ronroneo, Victor surprisingly included. You can’t see him here but he’s behind the Reaper losing it. It goes without saying that I cried as well.

NOOOOOOOO RONRONEO </3 IT’S NOT YOUR TIME YET

Komei is deep DEEP into the denial stage of grief. He doesn’t cry or react at all but immediately rolls the want to resurrect Ronroneo and the want is still there weeks later. Obviously same, Komes.

Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh. We’re stealing that secret society resurrection phone in college asap. Sleep well for the time being, baby, soon you will be back to us </3 And Grim, time for a fucking second grade math course. 

But life goes on, especially if you’re a horny teenager. Word about class slut Gunther has obviously spread, because girls keep coming home with us from school. I don’t remember this girl’s name but her ridiculous styling obviously points to her and Gunther hitting it off.

Slutting it up in front of his mother’s affair shrine! Man, passed down family traditions really bring a tear to your eye. We brought another girl home from school, Gwen, who is unfortunately not having an equally good time as blondie here..

-What the hell you freak?

-Haha, I know! Are you in love with me yet?

-It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife!!!

-WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT 

-You are too generous to trifle with me! If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once! My affections and wishes are unchanged; but one word from you will silence me on this subject for ever!!!!!!

-GOOD, SHUT UP

The snow on the dream date roses blondie leaves on our doorstep has not even set yet, as Gunther moves on to Gwen, with whom he has 3 BOLTS. Jojo I don’t even know how you’ve managed to out-pathetic Daniel in such short a period of time but the evidence speaks for itself:

……………………………..wow.

- I love you, Neo. Forty thousand brothers, could not, with all their quantity of love, make up my sum.

FOR THE LAST TIME, YOU ARE NOT SWITCHING TO HAMLET

Real tears. Jojo is literally rotating through the cats now. Obviously one of our children must at all times carry the Komei curse, otherwise the universe will come to an end. 

Roux is judging you Gunther, and so am I.

-Hey, not my fault Jojo screwed this up!

So much for brotherly love!

-Man, it sure is hard to care about your brother being a giant flop when your aspiration bar is through the roof!

Ugh yea everything’s coming up Gunther! Don’t worry about Jojo you backstabber, he will be totally fine.

…Totally fine. If not for the ‘go to college’ want, I’d think this is Komei’s want panel. Jojo, why must you devastate me so </3

Great, back to business I guess!

-What the hell is he doing, happily sitting around with his family??? My heart is breaking and yet I dare not look away.. Oh, this exquisite suffering.. 

………………..

And there you have it. Ronroneo may have died, but it’s someone else I mourn for.

Episode Review: “Whatever we face, we face together” [S03E01]

There it is! The season three premiere it felt like we had to wait 84 years to see. Was it worth the seemingly endless wait?

Y: Wow! I’m just… floored. Completely speechless. That was absolutely worth the wait. And it has to be said that this show knows how to do season openers! They know how to do a lot of things, don’t get me wrong, but Blindspot does season premieres like no other. I thought the Pilot was flawless and I thought the season two premiere was flawless, but dare I say it? I think the season three premiere just blew it out of the water. The opening three minutes were a gift from the heavens, and the closing three minutes left everyone gasping and shaking, and then there was everything in between that was closer to an action blockbuster with incredible characterization than it was to an episode of network television.

L: OMG. It was all that and more! There were so many things, big and small, that I loved about it, from that straight-out-of-fanfiction cold open to the smorgasbord of secrets at the end. And kudos to the entire cast, all of whom were amazing. This episode was such an exciting start to the new season, and I am looking forward to next week even more than I looked forward to the premiere!

STAN POST: U-KISS

I love U-KISS so much except my bias groups I can’t even. Do not even keep on reading if you don’t like word ‘underrated’.

First of all, I blame myself for getting to know U-KISS by some misheard lyrics videos. But it’s also the blame of mass media - U-KISS is so underrated and it is not the last time I will say it today. My first song of that AWESOME group was Believe and I quickly got onto the next ones. Believe is still my jam. I’ll never get bored of it.

Originally posted by sailorjupitrr

U-KISS is most probably so underrated because they have no boyish concepts, they’re real men - and what’s on top now is being all swaggy and/or cute (referring to BTS, EXO, Seventeen…I don’t say it’s bad, I like them too). But hello! U-KISS is one of the most hilarious groups (Weekly Idol, everyone) and they have some AMAZING vocals - Soohyun, Hoon, Kevin? Like, hear Soohyun hitting the high note, Quit Playing or Tick Tock if you want ro check. Shivers guaranteed. Also, Eli and AJ are great rappers, so was Dongho, that is, before he left. THEY DO DESERVE MORE RECOGNITION. 

Originally posted by raynleila

My bias has always been and will always be Hoon, whose voice makes me shiver. Every. Single. Time. His voice is always in my top k-pop voices. And just a bonus that to me he is TOO handsome. And how he laughed on Weekly Idol (XDD). LOVING EVERYTHING OF HIM.

Originally posted by dongwoosenpai

I don’t even know what to write about their songs. U-KISS is the only group in the world which I love all songs of and each one could be my favourite. Believe, Tick Tock, Quit Playing, Playground, Neverland, Stop Girl, She’s Mine, Doradora, Standing Still…And all must-be-known hits, Bingeul Bingeul, Manmanhani, Dancing Floor (bit less known tho). And of course 0330 with the legendary line Don’t deny our r squared pi (I really need a T-shirt with that line). Just fist notes of Bingeul Bingeul make me dance, and Quit Playing is the first song ever I’ve created a choreography for. If you don’t know any U-KISS songs, you shoul definitely check them out.

Originally posted by jaeseopshi

Ignore the fact that U-KISS actually stands for Ubiquitous Korean Idol International Super Star. I’m waiting for their comeback more than for anything, now with Jun nearly becoming my bias (if I didn’t love Hoon so much). Do I wish for too much? If they do comeback, please give them a lot of support - they really deserve it. U-KISS’ dances (Neverland, everyone, it is known as one of the most complicated k-pop choreos), songs, members - all things are perfect. Why, then, are there so few Kiss Mes and other-fandom supporters?

Originally posted by kiraukissable

I hope U-KISS will recieve recognition they deserve if they comeback (or even if they don’t!). Love to all Kiss Mes if there are any of them left, loyal to that fabulous group.

Thanks for your attention.

Love xxxx

dont sell yourself short (Pt.1)

you know all those cheesy dating site adverts where they tell you that your biggest flaw could be what someone loves? take notes.

so this may be helpful to brown/black SBs when online, but I’ve only just done it so you can try it if you like.

so i made a second profile on SA - choose your desired site - https://itsnecolbitchtips.tumblr.com/post/143458061727/list-of-websites

I went all out, exploiting my most noticeable features; big eyes, black/caribbean slim, and i have so many wigs i could set up my own shop.  

stay with me, theres a logic to this.

racism is everywhere, and some profiles specifically exclude black women, but where some men dont like it, others love it! its not like you can hide it so why not exploit it, play on fetishes, get into the mind of an SD and what would come to mind when seeing your chocolate self. Even me being an SB i know what i like, i hit the follow button so fast if you have the keywords - brown, black or UK sb.  and after reading this http://mochadream-x.tumblr.com/post/144500217079/londonsbrownsugar-mochadream-x and http://sugarbrownbabydoll.tumblr.com/post/144574298782/sbabyontherise-sugarbrownbabydoll I’m exploiting being caribbean as well, why not lol.

this can be for other girls, ladies exploit your races, you can’t hide it so embrace it and make it a selling point

having big eyes has turned into a blessing with the connotations of innocence, naivety, bambi eyes or doe eyes. Pick your best or noticeable feature and highlight it even more like you do with makeup!

dont lie about your weight or use pictures from years ago. You’re fat, thick, skinny WORK IT there are some amazing ladies and posts on here that have clothing/ bodyshape advice (cant find it right now but tag/ link some(one)) with confidence and knowing yourself and your body comes a surreal beautiful aura that attracts those that deserve you. Again, you cant hide it for ever so exploit it!

back to my black babies; with wigs comes fantasy “I could be whoever you want ;)” with natural hair/protective styles comes standing out, i’ve seen alot of posts about men wanting a women who contrasts against white girls or any other races which is most obvious with our natural hair. Logic: for culture appropriation to occur they must love how “ethnic” we look, so again exploit it  and if you have weave pleeeease make sure no tracks are showing, leave out is blended, and hair is atleast not stiff on dates.

EXPLOIT YOU’RE BEST AND WORST FEATURES. TURN EVERYTHING INTO A SELLING POINT

Recap & Thoughts on BONES 11x18: The Movie in the Making

*Disclaimer: This is perhaps the most loquacious post I have ever written about this show. And when you consider some of the things I’ve posted before, that’s saying something. So this is just a warning. The intro was written immediately after I watched the first airing of the episode. And it has taken me well over a week to gather together all the many thoughts I had about it. Anyway…good luck.

I usually give myself a bit of a reprieve between my viewing of any Bones episode and writing about it. I like to let everything sink in. I prefer to process the events of the episode after a full night of sleep. But for some reason, I just could not wait this time. I am sitting here typing through an insane amount of tears. Why am I sobbing so heavily right now? I’m not even sure I can fully articulate the reasoning. I have always made it abundantly clear that I could never choose a favorite episode of Bones. Each episode affects me in a different way. Each one has something to love. Each one means something special to me. Always a lesson to be learned. Always an application to my own life. However, the episode I have just seen, well, let’s just say that it was perfect. I have no other descriptor. There is not one thing I would change. There is not one word I would alter. I wanted for nothing throughout its entirety. This was an example of an absolutely perfect episode. I have yet to see the reactions to it (I have now…let’s just say I’m choosing to ignore a few of them), but I have to believe that I am not alone in feeling this way. I have to believe there are others who watched this particular installment, and felt in their “guts” and in their hearts that it just does not get better. Here is the thing- this episode could not exist without the eleven years of episodes preceding it. It was perfect because it was the best of Bones. It was flawless because it took everything that has always made Bones the wonderful, engaging, quirky, funny, emotional and beautiful show that it is, and infused it into 43 minutes of utter perfection. This episode does not exist without the 229 episodes before it. But here we are. Season 11. Episode 18. I am an emotional wreck. But what I have just witnessed was possibly the most fulfilling hour of television a fan could ever hope for. It was genius. The performances were outstanding. And I continue sit here in awe of the fact that while other shows tend to decline as they age, Bones only gets better and better.

Have you ever realised how incredible it is to be a Swiftie? I mean, Taylor really cares about us. She does her best to know us (follows us, has a chat with us, she sends us presents or even comes to OUR HOUSES… who else does that?). Her M&Gs are completely FREE! That is, we all have the same opportunities to meet her. I don’t have words to describe how much I appreciate all that… I only wish I can see her performing live one day because that must be something magical.

@taylorswift I love so much. You’re a lovely ray of sunshine.

A Third Holmes Brother?

After a long hiatus, I am finally going through my inbox and the number of questions about the identify of the third Holmesbrother is phenomenal. People have postulated everyone from Q in James Bond to Moriarty. 

I do have my theory about the Third Holmes Brother and it is very simple: he doesn’t exist and I shall explain why it fits perfectly with the themes of His Last Vow.

Moffat and Gatiss love exploiting with our preconceptions to produce amazing plot twists. If there is any episode where facts turned out to be nothing more than smoke and mirrors, it would be His Last Vow. 

The Third Holmes Brother is another wonderful piece of deception.

fen-rys  asked:

honest opinion on amren

Amren terrifies me. But like in a good way? in a ‘you could step on me and I’d thank you’ kind of way. And I’m just…in awe of how badass this lady is okay. I’m also eternally amused by the fact that she both manages to have all the chill and no chill whatsoever at the same time??? Like she oozes that kind of ‘I don’t care’ attitude and you believe it but at the same time she has that air of ‘step out of line and I’ll kill you without blinking’ too..which you also believe. 

Amren I want to know so much more about but at the same time I’m sort of afraid of knowing more about her? I feel like our children will have fallen on incredibly hard times if we ever find out what truly lurks beneath her skin. And while I do want her to be able to find a way home because she must be lonely being the only one of her kind I also don’t want her to leave her little found family ever. That would make me sad. I just want her and Rhys to continue providing night time entertainment for the other four by loudly arguing about history and politics and literature and whatever else they do. 

I love her heart though. I mean it’s buried deep but it’s absolutely in there. The scene where she demands to know where Feyre is ruins me. It ruins us all. For the same reasons. The bloody ruby thing is also just utterly fabulous like ‘price on my head? really? well what else is new? oh good a lovely new paperweight* 

I also want to know what Amren did to end up in the Prison. Rhys claims that he takes sentencing people there incredibly seriously because it’s permanent, they can never leave. Yet somehow she did. He also confirms that when she was there she wasn’t in the form that she’s currently in now. So I need to know if Rhys potentially helped Amren enter her Fae form in order to find some loophole to get her out of the Prison. 

Look I just have so many half-baked Amren thoughts and theories I need to know the answers to everything immediately. 

send me a character and I’ll give you my honest opinion of them write lots of shrieking meta about why they’re fabulous

For but a Moment

Two lonely pebbles capriciously tossed
about in the river tempestuously racing
to its end or to be emptied into the sea
though no one can know its destination
for but a moment it gathered us as one
in you I found magic and sheer delight 
revealing a richness never seen in me
but too soon the river carried you away
now my weary soul must ever wander
seeking the only one I’ll love in this life  
and while I may fail I’ll ever remember
for but a moment our hearts were alive

Its absolutely baffling to me how many people either forget or disregard that Katniss and Peeta were teenagers in these books, and hold every decision they made against them…

“Oh well Peeta was butthurt about her pretending to love him, and acted childish, that must mean he’s a jerk and doesn’t really love her”

Oh yeah that’s the ticket….because you know hormonal teenage boys have never been known to act irrationally…

“Katniss at one point chose Gale over Peeta, that means she can never love Peeta ever, and only chose him out of obligation.”

Right….Because all of us are married to the first person we ever had a crush on…Every decision we made as a teenager in regards to our love lives was 100% perfect, and we have never ever changed our minds ever….

Suzanne Collins wrote human beings, not automotons. 

So unless you have never gotten irrationally upset, lied to someone you loved, or dated the wrong person as a teenager (or even an adult) well maybe stop slinging the insults and give these children a break….
