now on hiatus!

anonymous asked:

beeeeee what to you think jace's favorite things are about simon?

slakg;laksg ANON as u know I’m on a semi-hiatus right now but I screamed into the void when I saw this message!! There is no world where I do this justice (especially with the promo that came out yesterday LORD GRANT US MERCY) but I will try my best to articulate my thoughts.

Disclaimer that this is a severely incomplete list and should be labeled like, 4/∞

  • Simon is funny, honestly funny, and can draw a smile out Jace even in the most inappropriate of times and places. It’s something that’s been true since Jace first met him, even when he was just a frustrating mundane causing Jace unnecessary trouble. It almost gets Jace killed multiple times, most notably when they’re trying to be incognito during a stakeout – “I’m paying you a compliment!” says Simon defensively, even though the wide grin on his face indicates that he’s full of shit. “Captain America’s from Brooklyn, you’re from Brooklyn, you’ve both got the same fantastic ass – and has anyone seen the two of you in a room at the same time? I think not” – and Jace has to resort to begging, “Please stop, between bursts of laughter and Simon just touches the wrinkles at the corner of Jace’s eyes and says, “Nope, never.”
  • Then there’s the matter of how Simon is strong. Jace isn’t losing any competitions in that department, but it’s no question that Simon can throw him around like a ragdoll and it’s a thought that does something to Jace, causes lightning to shoot up his spine and travel down to the ends of his fingers, the tips of his toes. Simon’s careful with him, of course, keeps a tight leash of control on his instincts to consume, possess – and maybe that makes it better, knowing that there’s so much raw power waiting inside Simon but with Jace he’s only ever considerate. Too much harshness has touched Jace, evidenced by the scars of his skin all the way to the scars of his soul, and Simon’s not going to add on to that – not if he can help it.
  • Simon’s genuinely sweet, in a guileless and unguarded way that’s rare enough in the world we live in, never mind in the world of demons and angels and shadowhunters. More often than not, Jace doesn’t know how to react to it. The physical part of it is already too much – how easily he takes Jace’s hand in his own and tangles their fingers together, the carelessness with which he presses his lips against Jace’s forehead, the apple of his cheek, a quick peck on the mouth accompanied with a rushed, “hey, sorry I’m late.”
  • But then there are the other parts: how Simon says, “I’m here, I’m here,” after Jace violently wakes from another nightmare and never forces Jace to talk about it; how his responses to questions on their relationship is always to grin and say, “yeah, he’s pretty great, huh?” and, “I’m a pretty lucky guy.” There’s never a hint of irony in his voice. Jace sometimes wants to take him by the shoulders and shake him, ask, how can you be like this?, but he already knows there’s no answer beyond what he already knows: Simon is wholly exceptional. Even being someone who has literally felt it stop beating in his chests, Simon’s got a heart that doesn’t stop giving.

Happy Star Wars Day! Here’s a sketch of a Jedi!Finn costume based on this outfit of John’s, which literally made me gasp aloud because all that drapey swishy fabric just screams Jedi!

I’m in a film costume history class right now, so I got really excited thinking about all the materials and whatnot. The leather sleeve is of course from the mangled Dameron jacket, and maybe the belts are salvaged from that material too. The drapey grey over-piece would be more of a soft, woven, matte fabric. The inside would be kind of satiny and dark, but would seem understated and subtle until it catches light in a really pretty blue violet. Also, I gave him some form of shoes that aren’t boots since I imagine the poor guy is tired of wearing them by this point, lmao.

Women are described in animal terms as pets, cows, sows, foxes, chicks, serpents, bitches, beavers, old bats, old hens, mother hens, pussycats, cats, cheetahs, bird-brains, and hare-brains…‘Mother Nature’ is raped, mastered, conquered, mined; her secrets are ‘penetrated,’ her ‘womb’ is to be put into the service of the ‘man of science.’ Virgin timber is felled, cut down; fertile soil is tilled, and land that lies ‘fallow’ is ‘barren,’ useless. The exploitation of nature and animals is justified by feminizing them; the exploitation of women is justified by naturalizing them.

At least once, Sherlock has jolted awake during the night looking scared and John’s sat up quickly next to him like “oh God are you okay was it a nightmare was is Serbia what was it love are you okay can you talk to me??” and Sherlock just shook his head a bit dazed and was like “no I just dreamed there was a really big spider in the room, will you check under the bed?”
