otp: my answer will never change

anonymous asked:

I really want/need to read something where someone brings up the fact that Frank's voice goes softer when he talks to or about Karen and Karen insists it is not true, but then she's super aware of his voice when he talks from then on and ends up realizing it to be true for herself. I'd be beyond thankful if you'd write something like that!

I love this trope omg – kastle: [softly]. So this formatting is a little weird? Kind of? It’s an older style I used to attempt but it felt fitting for the snapshots that this fic kind of became. I hope it’s okay :)

anonymous asked:

What did you think of Frank muttering "classy" under his breath when Karen shot him down with that "I should take your word on that?" I JUST !

YEAH. I’VE GOT SO MANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS WORD CHOICE!!

Here’s my take, okay – Frank mutters it because she just took his genuine explanation (aka: The Frank Castle Apology) that he struggled with really vocalizing for the first time (when Matt accused Frank of being unhinged in his methods/beliefs, Frank just knocked him out cold) and Karen seems to consider it, only to throw it back in his face. SHE’S UNYIELDING.

She thrusts the picture of his family in his face, right, and then she agrees to talk to him alone, but as soon as he’s giving into recollecting that tragic day like she wants, she gets overwhelmed by his emotions and tries to leave. It turns awkward. And I think the fact that Karen showed that emotion and then stays despite being uncomfortable when he says ‘please’ is what makes him try to formulate this explanation. 

It’s not really necessary – but Frank wants to address it. He wants to move past it because she’s not just a truth-seeker, she’s an incredibly compassionate person, and if they move past it then there’s no lingering doubts.

And maybe it’s a little bit of a test, because IMO he does that with her a lot – he tests her reactions, her beliefs. He tests to really find out the depth of who she is, how she thinks, and mostly I think to be sure she’s not placating or lying or acting deceptively in any way.

I just love the progression of this dialogue so freaking much because you can see WHY he’d be caught off guard by that response. She takes in his information, she explores his psyche. He gets a little vulnerable again, at the end. And then she rejects him.

F: You were never in any danger.
K: What?
F: The other night. Babysitting that shit brick, running around with that Grotto. I just– I only hurt people that deserve it. I wanted you to know that.
K: You think he deserved it?
F: I do….. You know he used to do hits for the Irish? Huh? One time, he shot an old lady because she saw his face…. I guess he– He didn’t tell you that, huh? Yeah. The point is, you were safe, okay? I just… wanted you to know that.
K: Guess I’m just supposed to take your word on that.
F: Classy.

When it comes to the word choice, I’ve kinda settled on him muttering ‘classy’ because she’s so blunt about it. She doesn’t sugar-coat the blatant dismissal or the hard look in her eyes and she turns away immediately afterwards in the body language equivalent of 'I’m done’ when they both know full well that she has that power – the power to end this conversation entirely if she wants to, because she’s the one that can leave, she’s not the one strapped to a bed.

Which is why I think Frank immediately follows it up more urgently with an explanation of his skills and “Point is, if I wanted you dead, you’d be dead.”

ALSO A PARALLEL, MAYBE.

The scene in 2.07 after the court outburst by one of his victim’s kids.

K: I need you to take the stand.
F: Come on, for what? Why would I–
K: The jury has to know what happened to you, what you go through every single day. After this afternoon I don’t think we have any other shot.
F: What? And what do you think is gonna happen here? We’re not gonna win this thing.
K: No, but we can still reduce the charges. Look, that might not be important to you, but it is important to me. All of them, they all think that you’re a monster. But I know that you’re not. You’re not!
F: You sure about that? …What if I find these men that did that to my family? What if– What if nothing changes? What if this is just me now?
K: …Then don’t you deserve to know that, too?

Frank takes in her information, listens and explores the possibilities vulnerably with her. Karen thinks they’ve reached an agreement (which, contrary to the hospital, they actually have). And then other factors intercede and he explodes on the stand, brutally disregarding her help and opinion of him.

feelslikeactualshit  asked:

What's been your favorite JJ/Tina moment? And what's been your favorite kiss between them?

Oooh good questions! I’ll start with the kisses, since there’s only 4 to work with. This is tough, though, cause there are really pros and cons to each kiss. Here is my break down:

“I just kissed my first boy!”
‘Sheesh! Cab, Bob?’ - kiss the first

Pros

  • Over-the-top amazing
  • Fancy outfits
  • Visible tongue action
  • Fantasy including shirtless Jimmy Jr. with abs
  • All around beautiful moment

Cons

  • Louise holding Tina’s head is kind of awkward
  • Jimmy Jr. didn’t really seem that excited about it
  • Not enough touching

“That’s the same date I wanted too.”
‘Gene It On’ - kiss the second

Pros

  • They both leaned into it
  • Tongue action
  • They wanted the same date
  • Sitting on the same side of the booth
  • Maybe hand holding?
  • The little mumbling sounds they both make before their lips meet

Cons

  • Louise meddling
  • No significant dialogue or action between them shown afterward
  • Why couldn’t Jimmy Jr. understand her the whole time?

“The best reason not to give to a charitable cause.”
‘The Gene and Courtney Show’ - kiss the third

Pros

  • He gave her a rose
  • Tina just going right in for the kill, you go, Tina!
  • First kiss to occur in relative privacy
  • His eyebrows go up during it

Cons

  • Jimmy Jr. didn’t return the kiss, he wasn’t expecting it and didn’t have enough time
  • Over too fast
  • No tongue

“I guess you’re just what I needed.”
‘The Hormone-iums’ - kiss the fourth

Pros

  • They smile in it
  • Jimmy Jr. looks at Tina’s lips before they move in
  • The way Jimmy Jr. bends down to reach her
  • Maybe tongue?

Cons

  • Tina also kissed three other boys that same night
  • The possibility that Jimmy Jr. also kissed other girls that night
  • Just overall not an ideal scenario 

THE VERDICT

So, clearly, this is a close call. If we were just looking purely at the screencaps, their fourth kiss would get it. But, taking the circumstances surrounding each kiss, I think my favorite would actually be their second kiss from Gene It On. There was just something about this moment that was just so sweet. Jimmy Jr. finally able to understand Tina when it counts the most, the two of them realizing that they wanted the same thing, and the fact that it was completely mutual. I have to wonder how it would have gone if Louise hadn’t interrupted. 

As for favorite T/JJ moment, I hope you don’t think I’m cheating if I say it’s when Jimmy Jr. gave her the rose in The Gene and Courtney Show. That was a kiss, too, but the kiss itself wasn’t what made that moment so great, it was the fact that Jimmy Jr. fucking pulled through. After Tina frets about how no one got her a Valentine’s Day carnation for nearly the whole episode, Jimmy Jr. finally steps up to the plate and gives her not a carnation, but a rose. Not only is that more expensive, but we all know the symbolic meaning of a red rose. Add onto that the fact that he clearly had to go out of his way to get it for Tina, since the school wasn’t selling them, and the fact that he clearly wanted it to be a surprise, and well, I don’t know how anyone can argue that Jimmy Jr. never cares about Tina. He really went above and beyond for her here. The kiss is just icing. 

But really, there are a lot of great T/JJ moments. They’re all special and they all deserve a mention. I’m pretty lucky to have an otp that makes answering these questions so difficult. Here’s to hoping that in the seasons to come there will be enough to make me change my answers here all over again. :’)

queer-disillusion  asked:

Sherlolly, "I knew it was a mistake to get the twins matching clothes."

For this meme. This is more of a drabble than a full-fledged fic.

Molly had never seen her husband look so frightened. Facing off against psychopaths, he was cool and calm. Faced with the prospect of looking after two identical toddlers for two hours, however, he was as terrified as any other father did when faced with the prospect of childcare.

“I’ll only be gone for about two hours,” she said, hitching her bag onto her shoulder. “But I’ll be back in time for supper, okay?”

Sherlock gave a small nod, his gaze fixed on the two little girls who were innocently sat in the centre of the living room, happily playing and giggling with one another. Molly gave a laugh and dropped a kiss on his cheek.

“You’ll be fine. And remember: I’m just a text away.”

Her husband broke out of his trance just quickly enough to pull her back and catch her in a rather breathtakingly affectionate kiss before she pulled away, laughing a little as she departed from the flat, closing the door behind her. Swallowing a little, Sherlock looked to his daughters. The way they stared back at him was in a manner that was inquisitive, eager and more than terrifying.

“Right,” Sherlock said softly to himself. “Two hours.”

That was practically nothing. He could cope with that, easily.

“Sienna, that’s not–”

“I’m not Sienna!”

“Eloise – ow, what are you doing – ow!”

“Not Eloise! I’m Sienna! And I’m climbing. You’re my ladder, Daddy.”

“Climbing – Eloise, careful!”

“I’m Sienna!”

“I was talking to Eloise—”

The first thing Molly did, on stepping through the door to 221b two hours later, was to laugh. For that moment, she didn’t care about the crayon drawings on the wall, nor did she care about the jam stains on the sofa.

On seeing Sherlock stood in the centre of the floor, one daughter climbing up and onto his back with little to no care for his facial features whilst the other merrily hummed as she skipped around the living room of 221b, the tell-tale stains of strawberry jam around her mouth and crayons in her hands. Sherlock raised an eyebrow at Molly briefly before he looked upwards at his other daughter, who happily continued to clamber up her father’s back and onto his shoulders, gripping at his curls with one hand as she reached up with the other to touch the ceiling.

Sherlock gave a sigh as he looked again to Molly.

“We never should have given the twins matching clothes, Molly.” He reached and with both hands, plucked a laughing Sienna from his shoulders. “Whose idea was it again?”

Molly leant against the doorknob, smiling.

“It was yours.”

“Of course it was.”

Okay so let’s get everything straight before I’m too tired to write (or too drunk but that I already am) :

  • I’m really really excited about Elsa in OUAT because I LOVE Frozen BUT, I’m pretty sure they’ll screw this up by making her Evil (but look at Peter Pan tho) and won’t respect her story and character as much as we want. But this won’t stop me to be fucking happy about that crossover.
  • I also know they are doing this only for more audience. I’m not stupid, I KNOW.
  • I’m as pissed and sad as all of you about Swan Queen and Regina, but I’ll NEVER stop shipping them. No matter what happens on the show. They are my One True Pairing and nothing will ever change that.
  • Yes I will probably have a lot of fun with Ice Queen because I had this headcanon the instant I saw the movie ; but I’m not the kind to ship something without seeing a little about it on screen first. Again this does not mean I’m jumping ship, I’ll just enjoy this possibility. Swan Queen will always remains my OTP.
  • I so hope the Frozen fandom won’t take this new thing too seriously because I don’t want Frozen to be ruined for anyone.
  • I need to stop blogging while drunk because damn I’ll be ashamed of myself tomorrow.

I love you all so dearly, I would never write this while drunk if I didn’t. SWEN and my followers are my second family, and nothing will change that, nor my love for the glorious Swan Queen ship.
