oh how i miss being a kid

do you think after Ron and Hermione got out of the trapdoor and raised the alarm and were being patched up in the hospital wing

do you think they were given the most royal proud mama smackdown by McGonagall like “ how DARE you infiltrate a death maze you are ELEVEN and miss granger how on earth did you solve my chessboard i”

and hermione interjected like “oh professor it wasn’t me. i’m useless at chess. it was ron.”

and McGonagall turned to look at Ron Weasley in total amazement at this 11 yr old kid who had been pretty ordinary in all her classes but had apparently beaten her in death chess and he just shrugged like “rookie mistakes, professor. you made some rookie mistakes.”

“Okay, first Garnet misses by fifteen years, now you miss by about sixty. Is Pearl going to gift him a tombstone or something?”

Ahh… remember when the gems were painfully oblivious to humans and how they functioned despite living in this planet for millenia?

Yeah I don’t miss those days.

Oh god what did you gift Pearl

Is it a letter to Rose.

PFFFFFFFFFFT

OKAY

OKAY THAT IS PRETTY FUNNY

THAT IS SOMETHING THAT PEARL WOULD GIFT

Fun fact time! Pearl is completely wrong here, and I’m not being an asshole, this is honestly pretty interesting.

We humans have an inner system to learn languages that’s at its most effective when we’re babies. We literally only need to hear a language being spoken as kids to learn all it’s rules and the entire system of it. It doesn’t have to be taught, humans just learn that by themselves, which is amazing.

“Maybe you can use this dictionary to look up what a baby is.”

Jesus christ Greg you can’t just shatter the gems like that.

i am just so ANGRY because MICKEY AND MANDY MILKOVICH WERE GOOD FUCKING PEOPLE who absolutely did not DESERVE what happened to them and they are now not even being treated with the respect and love that THEY SHOULD BE TREATED WITH. after their entire lives being ABUSE VICTIMS this is how they’re sent off the show, are you FUCKING KIDDING ME? and FUCKING SHEILA CALLAWHATEVERTHEFUCK talking about mickey becoming ian’s NURSE like literally shut the fUCK up, how do the WRITERS not even have a grasp on their own fucking character what thE FUCK I AM SO MAD. gOD so he’s finally taking care of the person he loves after literally going through HELL TO BE WITH HIM and now that’s a bad thing????? and he was being overbearing??? and oh oh oh ian just missed the old badass mickey??? didn’t want him to be all soft and gentle but now that he’s gone ian just wants something soft and gentle give me a fUCKING break. and WHILE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT IT, WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED TO IAN? HOW COULD YOU DEMOLISH SUCH AN INCREDIBLY WELL-CRAFTED CHARACTER? LIKE WHERE THE FUCK DID IAN GO? see like the ONLY way i’ve been able to interpret his actions is like if ian is still somewhat in love with mickey and the only way he knows how to cope is by distancing himself and trying to convince himself that the relationship wasn’t “real” or all too good or whatever. like i get that. i’ve been there. and it’s a natural coping mechanism. BUT THAT’S NOT WHAT THE WRITERS ARE DOING. THEY ARE FUCKING UP IAN’S CHARACTER AND I’M NOT OKAY WITH IT. BIPOLAR DISORDER DOESN’T CHANGE YOUR PERSONALITY LIKE THAT, DO YOU EVEN UNDERSTAND WHAT MENTAL DISORDERS ARE??? I’M SICK OF THEM TRYING TO DESTROY IAN GALLAGHER. IT’S NOT REALISTIC AND IM FUCKING MAD BECAUSE THEY ALREADY DID THIS WITH DEBBIE. as SOON as debbie became a teenager they literally threw her character out the window and gave her a new one. what, you think as soon as you get your period you become an entirely different person? AND YOU KNOWS it’s because she’s a girl, because carl is going thru his dumbass teenager phase too but it FITS his personality, as much as we wished he wouldn’t take the criminal lifestyle to heart. but NO debbie is a GIRL so of COURSE SHE HAS TO BECOME THE AIRHEADED HORMONAL TEENAGE GIRL WHO’S OBSESSED WITH BOYS AND WANTS A BABY, like are you FUCKINg kidding me? that is the most un-debbie like storyline ever, and it’s sO overdone, are you really lacking creativity tHAT badly?!?!? oh teenagers have the stereotype of being troublemakers so naturally debbie has to be one of them. YES OKAY MAKE HER REBEL, MAKE HER QUESTION THINGS LIKE A TEENAGER, but she IS STILL DEBBIE FOR FUCKS SAKE. SHES STILL THE SAME PERSON. look at the debbie in season 3 and tell me it’s the same person as the one we’re seeing now. go ahead. i dare you. because there’s a difference between growing up and going through phases, and completely developing a new mindset, a new set of beliefs, and a new fucking personality?!?!?! and NOW THEY’RE TRYING TO DO THE SAME WITH IAN.

YOU WANT TO MAKE THOSE SHITTY CHARACTERS?! GO AHEAD. BUT YOU DON’T GET TO JUST TRANSFORM ALREADY BUILT CHARACTERS INTO THEM. THAT’S NOT HOW HUMANS WORK, YOU UNINFORMED PIECES OF SHIT WITH YOUR SUPPOSEDLY “REALISTIC” SHOW.

EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER WITH DEPTH OUTSIDE THE GALLAGHER FAMILY WAS WRITTEN OFF IN THE MOST SHITTY MANNER EVER.

Karen Jackson? GONE. Sheila Jackson? GONE. Mandy Milkovich? GONE. Mickey Milkovich, who had arguably one of the most beautiful character development arcs in television history? NAH FUCK IT, GONE. 

honestly. part of me is glad they didn’t have the time to fuck up mickey’s character the way they fucked up everyone else’s.

GOD I AM SO MAD.

6:45am

The school bus did not come today. Even after getting a phone call confirmation on Friday from district transportation and an email from the attendance officer (of the spiked hair incident) yesterday morning.

Y'all know how much work it is to get three kids up, dressed, fed and out the door at 6:30, to walk two blocks and entertain them for 30 minutes while I keep saying “it’s probably on its way.” Oh and I had the dog with me too. And it’s garbage day.

At 7, I called it a miss and we walked two blocks back home, and I told everyone they got a fruit snack for being good sports. I mean, for my kids, changing routine and difficult is hard, so over the weekend we’d talked about the bus a lot. The Barbie fruit snack was a good distraction to get us to school with only one minor meltdown this morning.

This is the third time the bus has not come.

I travel for work a lot in the coming weeks. My visual impaired mom will walk the kids to the bus stop, but if the bus doesn’t come, how will they get to school? More importantly how will my mom survive all day with Bee? Her behavior is so, so difficult.

Happy President’s Day.

I feel like these kids are a reference to something but I can’t quite put my finger into it.

I said Earthbound before but I’m not too sure.

OH IT ACTUALLY WORKS.

That’s… surprising.

Welp…

Goodbye Garbanzo I guess. You will be missed.

I honestly can’t tell if Steven is being serious here of if he’s just playing along for the kids.

Knowing how few interactions he’s had with kids of his age it wouldn’t surprise me if it’s the first option.

“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Homeworld ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched giant weapons glitter in the dark near the Strawberry Field. All those moments will be lost in time… like tears in rain…”

“Time to die.”

Starting to ship Lapis x Pearl a little bit

Think about it

  • Both fucked up, traumatized, self-destructive, and focused on the past
  • Pear trying to make up for keeping Lapis in the mirror and Lapis slowly trying to forgive her
  • Lapis and Pearl discovering that their traumas are actually similar and relatable to each other in ways they didn’t realize
  • Helping each other heal
  • A new kind of intimate encounter for both, one that doesn’t come with a strong sense of obligation but is more like two gems who just happen to cross paths and relate a lot and become close which ends up being an eye opening experience
  • Lapis being like “You don’t understand what it’s like being treated like an object for so long!” And Pearl says “Are you kidding? I’m a Pearl! And Lapis goes “oh… right”
  • Bonding over how they miss space
  • Sea motifs as Lapis is associated with water + Pearl is a pearl (obvs) which come from the ocean
  • The ocean is a lesbian
  • Good classy femme aesthetics
  • I’m gay

@leesh said: i just laughed at the cupid comment and mum asked if i was okay

the other day one of the girls told me that her best friend was leaving school and i was like “it’s okay you’ll see him tomorrow” and she goes “no he’s going to the hospital he broke his finger by dropping a weight on it!!!!” and i burst out laughing and all of the kids were like oh my god miss

@onismanxiety said: these are all so cute & i’m so impressed with you being a teacher. i’ve thought about it but know i don’t have the patience or temperament to do it.

one day after school this kid spent an hour and a half in my room after school doing late work (bless his heart) and he was asking me how i’m so chill all the time and why don’t i ever yell at them and i was like child wtf are you talking about i’m always angry

@dulcedeliam said: I love your teacher posts

thank you i’m glad they’re amusing

@noshirtnoblouse said: it’s so weird reading your teacher posts because it reminds me of dumb shit i used to do in highschool

i’m so glad you grew out of it that gives me hope

“He’s asleep, let’s get him!”

“You do know that’s an old man, right?”

“Oh right, he doesn’t have much time to live anyways, let’s just steal his shit.”

Fun fact, our house was once robbed around… 2005 I think? 

I was a kid but I remember being pretty fuckign awful having almost literally everything missing from my home.

….

Yeah, see? Another solution for the problem that’s not “being an asshole”.

Greg is a clever boy.

OKAY HOW MUCH EXACTLY DID YOU RAISE.

ARE YOU TRYING TO KEEP A SCHOOL OR BUY AN ENTIRE TOWN.

Look lady we get it, songs and shit. We still have the third act conflict to get with.

Altough knowing this show it might not happen again.

AH THERE WE GO.

Also I knew that the untied shoes would come back at some point.

All I need to say is; HOLY FUCKEN SHIT, ARE YOU FUCKEN KIDDING ME WTF ALL I GOT TO SAY IS HOLY MOLE OH MY GEEZ, JESUS CHRIST HOW CAN SOMEONE BE SO PERFECT, ok I am done no wait; FUK FUK FUK FUK FUK FUK, ok now I am done; HOLY HELLA FUDGE BALLS I LOVE YOU SO FRICKEN MUCH ssweet-dispositionn just keep on being the baddest BITCH out there

Oh god, they’re “no color” now? I think it would be better to group them so people see how “few” there are and start being like MORE WHITES MORE ORANGE MORE GREEN! What if they made season 15 a 3 girl team with only orange white and green?

I dont know how theyre seen in Japan, but its probably harder to sell green merchandise for kids? If they were very profitable, I think Toei wouldnt miss the chance! And lets be honest… Mint and March werent really types that would interest most kids (March might be a little more interesting for them, I think? Just a hunch) and Felice was the one that would actually stand out because of her cheerful and childlike personality.

Whites are… I dont even know what to say about them! Cure White was probably veeeery popular at the time, Rhythm was kinda just a sidekick to Melody most of the time in Suite, and I dont know if Egret made an impact to be remembered. I think white is a very hard color to work with in magical girl shows!

And we really need more orange cures, but not like Sunny! It’s too easy to look at her and say “Look, another red one!”, so they really need to make an orange cure look orange! But I also think its another hard color to work with… I dont see many things that have orange as its theme color in anime :(

I dont believe that PreCure will leave the main color scheme they use for future seasons, especially now that the AllStars movies are changing a little… But they could at least use a different color for their sixth ranger each season!

How hard is it?

Once I was babysitting a little boy and the boy asked me if I had a boyfriend and I said “no but I have a girlfriend!” And he said “like a friend that’s a girl?” And I said “no like a boyfriend but they’re a girl instead of a boy! We still do couple things but we’re both girls” and he said, without missing a beat, “oh okay! Are you going to marry her?”

It’s literally that easy for kids to understand

Congratulations homophobes for being worse than a 6-year-old boy

I miss being a little child,
When the worst that happened to me was a gummy bear fight.
Oh, I miss not having a care of the world,
Now, again and again, I’m getting hurt.

I miss saying what’s on my mind,
No thoughts I had to hide.
Not how much I’m hurt because you lied,
Not how much I still care inside.

Look at us now,
If I do, I start to wonder how,
A generation of happy kids,
Could eventually end up like this.

Brittany and Santana as parents would probably call Lord Tubbington their oldest son. Just imagine it. Quinn being like, “Oh, where’s Sugar?” And Brittany, “She’s playing with her brother”. “I’m sorry? You don’t have any other kids? HOW MUCH DID I MISS, OH MY GOD?” Santana comes in, grinning, “Calm down, Q, or is being drama queen contagious? Stop snogging Berry. Britt’s talking about Lordy”. Quinn facepalms til she gets home in the evening.

Domestic pro miyusawa parents headcanon time!!! Man I’ve missed doing headcanons ;-; Here are all the other ones in order lol (1 - prequel lol), (2), (3)

  • Miyusawa in seiza position while being scolded by their kid cause she was just out to buy something from the convenience store and she comes back to he half-naked dads all over each other’s throats. “How many times have told you to at least do it in your room?!’” “But we thought you went out-” “NO BUTS!!” no butts ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  • Their kid and Mochi are best fucking buds because “Oh my gosh You-nii, my dads are the most shameless people in the world.” “You tell me, kid.” 
  • And lmfao, Mochi takes their kid as his apprentice. An apprenticeship on how to keep those 2 shameless people under control LOL
Major Crimes 5x08

I won’t comment on the quality of the episode. I’ll just say, nowhere close to being my favorite of the season.

I do wanna point out how many missed opportunities there were in this ep.

Sharon being excited about the sonogram: how difficult would it have been to throw in a bit about how she felt when she first had her kids? Or when Rusty said it was a girl, how about a line from Sharon “Oh, I wish I had a sister.” or “When I found out I’d have a sister…” - because this was a great opportunity to find out something about her not involving Rusty, Andy (not that we find out much on that front -.-) or work.

Andy and Rusty talking: okay, it would’ve been cliche, and I’d probably hate it if it had happened (because it would again mean progression with Shandy through Rusty) but the question “How did you know you loved my mom?” would have actually been cute. Although, I liked Andy’s answer to the sobriety question. BUT again, missed opportunity.

Then with all this talk about Sharon Beck and the kid. How about a scene with Rusty, Andy and Sharon R. talking about that issue? Yeah, yeah, Rusty and his issues, bla-bla, but getting Sharon Beck out of Rusty’s system for the episode that way could have given them 2 minutes for a proper Shandy scene. Like, after discussing Jared, how about Sharon saying “Let’s call it a night, Andy.” and then walking back to their bedroom? Oh, wait, that would actually mean Shandy exists beyond smiles and glares and occasional touches. -.-

Urgh, anyway, I’m just constantly disappointed over the fact that Sharon Raydor is again reduced to the roles of the supportive mother, sharp boss and don’t-push-it-mister girlfriend. And I don’t mind Sharon Beck (that much) but they could cut it down a bit with her, I don’t mind Gusty either, and that scene at the end really was adorable, loved Gus’ reaction, but seriously, how is it that all couples on the show have on screen development but Shandy? (not sure about Sykes and Cooper) Oh, wait, I know, it’s because Duff couldn’t care less about Sharon Raydor. God forbid he give Mary some proper scene to show off her fabulous acting! Why would he, what a preposterous idea!

And again, Duff and his teasing before episodes… Honestly, I don’t think I’d be nearly as pissed about these last couple of episodes had it not been for him giving his piece of mind a few hours before the episodes aired.

I could go on, but I’m shutting up now. This will do.

For now.
