obvious comments are obvious

Odysseus, on his journey home to Ithaca, was visited by a ghost. The ghost tells him that once he reaches his home, once he slays all his enemies and sets his house in order, he must do one last thing before he can rest. The ghost tells him to pick up an oar and walk inland. And keep walking until somebody mistakes that oar for a shovel. For that would be the place that no man had ever been troubled by the sea. And that’s where he’d find peace. 

            In the end, that’s all I want. To walk away from the sea and find some peace.

@ all the starco shippers who are salty about the new clip about Star and Tom: why can’t y'all just let them dance

everything you need to know about bucky barnes in one scene

Clary and I have always had each other’s backs. We had our entire lives. That’s more than I can say for you or Alec.
You do not get to talk about Alec, mundane!

So I’ve watched this scene many times and like many others, that “lap dog” comment bugged me. I often wondered why would he let someone refer to Alec as his lap dog, why would he let anyone demean his parabatai like that and then immediately proceed to defend Alec. But that’s just it. He’s defending Alec. Every time he spoke out against what Simon had said during that scene, it was only to defend Alec.  

I care about a bunch of people. Just don’t care about you. 
Me, or what… What’s it called, your… your parabatai?
Whoa, watch your mouth. You don’t know a thing about me and Alec.

Twenty bucks says he leaves you hanging tonight.
Not a chance.

Anytime Simon said anything that indicated that Alec isn’t honorable or reliable or trustworthy, you can see Jace get noticeably irritated.

But when Simon had a go at him, “You treat him like a lap dog,” he didn’t bother saying anything against it, he doesn’t care enough to defend himself. Jace said in this scene that he cares about a lot of people, that Simon just wasn’t one of them. So he didn’t care about Simon’s opinion of him. But he cared about what anyone else thought about Alec to say ‘no, you’re wrong, don’t talk about something you know nothing about’, even if it was Simon. Basically if anyone questions Alec and his integrity, or go after their bond, and Jace will have have no problem telling them how wrong they are.

(Another thing about the scene above is as soon as Simon outright said that Alec doesn’t have his back, Jace snapped. I can’t help but wonder how many instances that came to his mind where Alec did have his back in all the years that they have known each other.)

I Love You, You Pay My Rent: Chapter 10

First Chapter (Prologue)

Previous Chapter (Chapter Eight)

Nico had been living with Will for over a month now and he could honestly say that even though there had been plenty of frustration he had never been so annoyed as when Percy pulled him back down into the club.

He glanced back and saw Will silhouetted against the night sky, blank and stiff and totally unreadable, the unlit cigarette limp in his hand. Then he was back inside the club, pulled through the crowds of people he barely knew to where Jason was waiting with a glass of champagne looking all grown up and serious.

Nico barely heard what he was saying as he spoke. It was probably heartfelt and meaningful but it was all Nico could do to stay still. He felt like he was vibrating and he wondered if his antsy-ness was as obvious as he felt it must be. He knew he kept glancing over at the shallow recess that hid the doorway to the fire escape, waiting for Will to re-emerge.

Death threats to SO's are not opinions. Sam and Cait are not together, move on. The new season will be epic, enjoy their work!!!

I have never seen a death threat. Have you? No, I’m not talking about stories you’ve read or passed around in “anti” land like a game of malicious telephone. Nor am I talking about obvious trolls with obvious troll accounts saying outrageous things in comment sections and then closing their accounts or being shut down for violating TOS, I’m trying to figure out when/where/who/to whom/what kind of death threats you mean. Because I really have never seen anything of the sort. Why are you bringing this to me? And why are you repeating this shipper urban legend?
Also, I’m not moving on. I fan how I like. I fan with integrity and respect and humor and snark and intelligence and joy. I plan to enjoy season 3 as well.
