one thing that will never change

Vidalia never had to live with this part.

Sure, when Sour Cream was born, Marty wasn’t around, but that’s because Marty was never a real part of Vidalia’s life.  She didn’t love him, he wasn’t interested in being a father, and so Vidalia had to be a single mom, sure (if Yellowtail hadn’t come into her life yet), but she didn’t have to deal with a big loss at the same time as getting overwhelmed with a baby.

But Greg did love Rose, and she did want to be a part of his life, and now she’s gone.

She’s gone.

She’s dead.

Greg’s not naive; he knows you can have more than one great love in your life, but…right here, and right now, that doesn’t change a damn thing.  His family is down by one, and she’s never coming back.

God, it hurts just thinking about it.

I think the hardest part about losing someone you love is the questions you ask yourself, but never get any answers to. What was it exactly that set everything in motion to get to this point… and when was it too late to stop it? Was there some way to change it I didn’t see… could I have stopped all this if I’d just done one thing differently?
Is this my fault, did I somehow cause it… or worse… did I deserve it?
Would we both have been better off if we’d never met at all? Would we have each found our happiness if we’d chosen paths that never crossed or was it always meant to be this way?
…. And of course, the most painful question of all…. will it ever stop hurting?

The other day I caught the H50 ep where Lou's friend pushed his wife off a cliff and he tells Steve that if his own wife fell down a cliff he'd be screaming her name over and over and just, Steve fell down a cliff and Danny screamed his name over and over - that's how fast they married, 12 episodes after the 'I know you'

That is the first time I heard that parallel! At that point, Steve’s taking Danny to all his favorite places, Danny’s daughter is looking up to Steve as an uncle, they’ve just decided to roll with the undefinable click that came with running into each other in that garage. They weren’t alone anymore and that one moment, Steve falling, Danny so anxious that he’d lost him. They end up in trouble a lot and the one thing that never changes is calling for each other, like a beacon to find their way home. 

Thank you for sharing, anon! These little messages are so cool to receive!

Fix-it fic, maybe?

I guess it sort of depends on how you define fix-it? Because I did write that one where Kaya got to live a longer life, and I could easily see myself doing other fics giving other tragic characters happier endings (like a very very AU time travel scenario where Guen and Kija’s dad team up to find Hiryuu who has gotten himself lost in time).

But I usually associate “fix-it” more with the sentiment of “this thing should have NEVER happened in canon so I’m going to change it” and, sad as ch104 or the predecessors backstories are, they’re not that. So far there hasn’t been anything I’ve felt quite that strongly about in Akayona (which is the only thing I’m writing fic for lately). Weellll…except for Lili’s crush on Geun-tae, but I guess my answer to that is just to continue shipping her with Yona.

Worry

She didnt let anyone know, tried her best to fulfill her responsibilities, make sure the kids were taken care of. Henii’s children asked for news every time she came. It was difficult to muster the positivity in her response.

Henii was more than just a friend, she was one of the first people the young dwarf put her faith in after the incident with her father. They had started their lives over, becoming adventurers at the same time, and they grew together. They had watched each other grow confident, become more capable, and shared in each other’s victories. They were there when each became wives, and mothers.

Then, the man in black. Such a foul -thing- left its mark on Henii, and Dar couldnt heal her. Henii was never as warm or trusting again, and though their friendship remained, it was changed. She was sharper at times, didnt hide feelings of annoyance or anger towards her, or really anyone, and certainly became more distant, or, at least, more guarded.

The young dwarf couldnt help but feel guilty. If she had tried harder, if she hadn’t given up, happy that Henii had at least found solace in her family and kept reaching out to her, If she’d been more attentive, saw the warning signs, then maybe this wouldn’t have happened. No, no maybe about it, she was a healer, and she didn’t heal what drove her to the Legion, to become a monster.

Darlain loved Henii, differently, but just as deeply and strongly as her love for her husband and children, and had failed to save her from this. She had to make this right, somehow.

She had to talk to her friend again. Try to bring her back.

Even if it killed her.

Lbr isaks never gonna change that contact because even told him he joined to meet him and he is a sap

RIGHT????? like, honestly i think at first isak kept even in his phone under kosegruppa for no homo reasons just like he was telling his friends that even was just some theatre nerd which like. have you seen even lately. no one was buying that. and then after he and even became a thing it was so whirlwind he didn’t even have time to think about changing it they were too… busy… and then by the time he was ready to change it because it’s his boyfriend and maybe put a little heart emoji next to even’s contact name, even goes and tells him he went to kosegruppa just to meet isak and now it’s set in digital stone

anonymous asked:

For Souji, if you could go back to your childhood and change one thing that would change your life for the better, would you do it, even if it meant never meeting Kondo-san?

Okita chuckles, eyes glimmering with sudden mirth… and, rather than respond, keeps laughing until he is forced to bend double—whereupon he only stops because he starts coughing. “Sorry, what?” he chortles, his voice ragged but still humorous. “Meeting Kondou-san is the best thing that ever happened to me, so how could my life be changed for the better without him? No thanks.”

I am trying to figure out why Becca Tobin stays with R/icky. She's got no reason to be loyal. She & D don't speak. She changed her PR but not her mgmt. Makes no sense. He only manages her, Evanna and some SKs. All the rest left him.

It’s on my list of things that make you go hmmmm. Honestly I don’t know much about becca, I never interact with her so can’t really say one or another. Well outside of one or two events…but even then never spoke with her.

Haven’t cared enough to ask

Harry Styles: Singer Opens Up About Famous Flings, Honest New LP
One Direction's Harry Styles goes deep on love, family and his heartfelt new solo debut in our revealing feature.

January 2016. There’s a bench at the top of Primrose Hill, in London, that looks out over the skyline of the city. If you’d passed by it one winter night, you might have seen him sitting there. A lanky guy in a wool hat, overcoat and jogging pants, hands thrust deep into his pockets. Harry Styles had a lot on his mind. He had spent five years as the buoyant fan favorite in One Direction; now, an uncertain future stretched out in front of him. The band had announced an indefinite hiatus. The white noise of adulation was gone, replaced by the hushed sound of the city below.

The fame visited upon Harry Styles in his years with One D was a special kind of mania. With a self-effacing smile, a hint of darkness and the hair invariably described as “tousled,” he became a canvas onto which millions of fans pitched their hopes and dreams. Hell, when he pulled over to the side of the 101 freeway in L.A. and discreetly threw up, the spot became a fan shrine. It’s said the puke was even sold on eBay like pieces of the Berlin Wall. Paul McCartney has interviewed him. Then there was the unauthorized fan-fiction series featuring a punky, sexed-up version of “Harry Styles.” A billion readers followed his virtual exploits. (“Didn’t read it,” comments the nonfiction Styles, “but I hope he gets more than me.”)

But at the height of One D–mania, Styles took a step back. For many, 2016 was a year of lost musical heroes and a toxic new world order. For Styles, it was a search for a new identity that began on that bench overlooking London. What would a solo Harry Styles sound like? A plan came into focus. A song cycle about women and relationships. Ten songs. More of a rock sound. A bold single-color cover to match the working title: Pink. (He quotes the Clash’s Paul Simonon: “Pink is the only true rock & roll colour.”) Many of the details would change over the coming year – including the title, which would end up as Harry Styles – but one word stuck in his head.

I know you’re in pain. It hurts in ways you can’t even begin to describe and even if you could, no one seems to want to listen. Sure, people care and try to help… for a time… but when you don’t seem to be getting any better, after a while, they get tired of listening… Eventually it becomes easier to keep it all inside.
I know you feel like it will never get better and you’ll never be okay again. It’s been like this for so long now that you think if things were ever going to change they would have by now so this is how it’s always going to be… but it’s not. I promise it’s not. You learn cope, it just takes time and I know it feels like you’ve given it enough time already but not everyone heals at the same pace.
Tell yourself it’s okay to feel the way that you do. Nobody else on this earth has lived through your life to be in any kind of position to understand your battles. Nobody else but you has walked in your shoes to be any kind of comparison on how you should be feeling right now or whether or not you should be ‘better’. I won’t lie to you – what you’re going through will always leave its mark upon you as any trauma does – and that’s normal too. Nobody looks back on a traumatic life experience and giggles about it… But it’s this all-consuming depressive state… these overwhelming feelings you can’t control… the way those feelings isolate you and make you feel vulnerable and alone – THAT is what won’t last forever.
It DOES get better… you DO find acceptance. Not all at once – its gradual… like a stormy day or a long dark night… you don’t just blink and suddenly it’s a blue sky. Storm clouds part slowly, allowing brief flashes of sunlight at first… then eventually disappear… Dark nights end slowly as a new day begins to dawn… Acceptance is the same… and I know you have the courage to wait for it…

i adore adore adore the fact that the four main characters of skam are so significant for teen culture of this day? as a teacher in secondary school, these are genuinely teenagers’ struggles that i’ve seen in everyday life.  

with eva, we saw the loneliness and loss of identity of teenagers (specifically girls!) within a peer culture that requires a lot of social interaction: you need to “know” where your place is and that is your identification; through dating, but also through friendships. but, as eva said, maybe it’s okay that she doesn’t know right now, and that she has to find it.. on her own. one of her biggest strengths in the end is how honest she has become; with herself and with others. 

with noora, we see a character who explicitely identifies herself as feminist and finds a lot of value in being morally upright. but what happens when situations aren’t as black and white as we think they are? moreover, what happens to a girl who has been sexually harassed, and violated, possibly even raped? noora shows us that at the very least, it is important to communicate with people about your experiences to be able to get through those horrible experiences, even if it is only a little bit. 

with isak, we delve into the psyche of a lgbt+ teenager who has seen representations of lgbt+ culture in the media and has enormous difficulties with identifying himself as such. but his story doesn’t end there even though other shows might have stopped there; his misconceptions about religion (god doesn’t exist!!) and mental illness (i don’t want them around/ they are crazy) are real thoughts that go through people’s heads (especially in western culture). these are all perceptions that are formed by society, but it is important that isak was never demonised for these ideas; through communication with different kinds of people he got educated on things he thought he knew about and that changed him into the mature person he is now. 

and now, with sana, a muslimah with one leg in the Western culture and one in her religion which is seen as “unwestern” by many who critique it, has the time come to delve into a deeper understanding of those who experience (daily?) hatred in their lives through media and society. once again, communication seems at a forefront: “don’t let me be misunderstood” – listen to my experiences, to my life, to my explanations. she has been so infallible before, that it will be interesting to see what is going to be her challenge in her season; a character who is so focused on being right in everything she does – i think her unintentionally making a mistake having an effect on her and the people around her would be an excellent story. 

i guarantee that this series will have a long lasting effect on how teenagers, and people, are going to view each other in the long run. media teaches us to be afraid of each other; skam is that small light that shows there is more than fear. 

there’s also love. in compassion, in understanding, in educating. 

and i can’t wait to look back on it all and say: you know, that norwegian series for teenagers in 2015? i felt validated, i felt heard, i felt loved by that series. i’m gonna show my love in return to other people. because we have learned something from it. 

alt er love. 

“We’ve been dating for a year and a half. It’s been a wonderful relationship but recently it’s changed a lot. I feel like I’m the one holding it together. I’m the one that calls. I’m the one that texts. We used to talk every day, but now she’s not even trying. Maybe she just feels smothered. Maybe she’s testing to see if I’ll stick around. I just don’t know. I can’t decipher what she wants. When I ask her directly, her answers are never precise. She keeps saying: ‘I’ll think about it.’ So I keep giving her one last try—over and over again. I just want to get things back to the way they used to be.”

The possibility of Otayuri becoming canon

So in this post-Welcome to the Madness daze and with the information that has been released today, I would like to do some speculation about the character dynamic between Yurio and Otabek and the possible implications for this ship to become canon. I have already written a bit about this in a comment to another post here, but I would like to elaborate.

Again, this is just me throwing around ideas, with a good dose of wishful thinking.

-          Otabek enters the story quite late as a character. He is there from the beginning but we only get to see him interact with the others from episode 10 onwards. The focal point becomes what his relation is to Yuri. He whisks him away on his motorcycle, takes him to one of the most beautiful vistas in the city and then casually drops how he has admired him for the past five years. Then he offers Yuri his friendship, which has apparently never occurred in Yuri’s life before, they go for a coffee and Mari is stunned to see Yuri normally interact with another human being for a change. It’s up to you to ignore any fond gazes during this scene. What’s worth mentioning is that Yuri seems kind of perplexed by this whole thing. The “eyes of a soldier” line gets to him, because it is probably the first time someone sees him for who he wants to be.

The Club (M)

Pairing: Jungkook x Reader
Genre: Smut with a dash of fluff.
Word count: 3.6k 

Part one: Kitchen Counter, Part two: Laundry Room.

» Song: Love In This Club part II

Summary: ”Or we can just do it here.“ He hummed, his fingers immediately latching onto his belt and working as quickly as ever to get it loose. “Jeon Jungkook,” You quietly scolded with a laugh, placing a hand over his and looked around. “People can see you.” Once you looked back down at him, he shook his head slowly, “It doesn’t matter, baby,” He reasoned, his tongue flickering over his lips. “Everyone’s wasted, I promise. I just…I want you so bad.”
