proposal for an addition

Lol have a random fic idea cuz i cant write for shit.

Imagine Lance wanting to hang out with his boyfriend for almost 7 years, Keith.

Imagine Keith always denying his requests cuz he has ‘plans’ with Shiro.

Imagine Lance asking Keith for a total of 7 times but everytime its just.

’ Sorry babe, I cant. Shiro and I agreed to meet up today.’

’ Sorry Lance, Shiro needed some help about something.’

Sorry, Shiro this, Shiro that.

Lance has had enough.

One day he just bursts when Keith asked him out for dinner.

“ Oh NOW you want to spend time with me?!? How about the last seven times I asked you?! SEVEN! Why dont you go ask Shiro instead, ‘cause you know what?! We’re over! ’

Imagine Keith looking at him, trying to hold back tears.

Imagine Keith reaching for something in his pocket and kneels down.

Imagine Lance staring at him with disbelief.

Imagine whatever the fuck comes next cuz I cant continue.

Edit:

A fun addition: Keith was asking Shiro to help him set up the perfect date for a marriage proposal.

Another fun addition: Keith asked him on their seventh year anniversary.

Oh, the many joys of working in publishing. Sometimes you get news like what we’re about to tell you, and it kind of makes your whole week.

First, some quick background: Things I’d Do (But Just For You) is a sweet book about the quirky little things you only do for someone special. 

You get the deal. Now for the fun part…

Our Senior Publicist, April, recently got this email from the book’s author, Jack Sjogren:

Hi April!

I hope you’re doing well! I have a good story for you about Things I’d Do (But Just For You).

A month ago I got a wonderful email that read:

I purchased your book a while ago and gave it to my partner as a gift. It’s been important to us ever since, as we use your words from the book daily! I mean, “I’d wake you up… with donuts” and “I’d make you a tiny hat… in case your hat gets cold” are our favorite parts of the book and we typically remind one another that we would indeed do these things daily… and sometimes we do!

Anyway, since your book has been such an important part of our relationship, I was wondering if there was any way I could purchase another copy and have it autographed by you? In fact, if I can get another copy, can I even go as far as having you write this: “Heather, Will you marry Ashley?”

Whether or not I am able to get such a copy, I want you to know that we appreciate your book and we are thankful that someone like you could put into words how we (and hopefully other couples) feel daily.

Of COURSE I said yes, and in addition I offered to draw her proposing to her girlfriend in the color scheme of the book, and slip a print of that in the back of the book. So I sent her the copy and the print, then just got an email tonight with news that it worked! And now two people are engaged with the help of our little book!

—Jack

You read that right, folks—the adorable book led to a real life engagement. Check out the custom drawing Jack drew, and his note to the couple:

And here’s the happy, newly engaged couple:

Heather and Ashley, we wish you many, many years of happiness!

Now, where’s my tissue box…

the left wing in this country needs a gun culture….like ideally America wouldn’t have such a gun fetish but given the situation, I feel like the only way we on the left can, at this time, combat the NRA and its allies is to develop our own gun culture

cuz like, the whole thing is that the right sees the left as trying to “take away” guns from people and trying to restrict their freedoms, and that is a fallacy completely perpetuated by the NRA.

And I feel like we’d have far more credibility if more of us + more left wing leaders were gun owners/users while also advocating stronger gun control. Like it’d lend us a sense of ethos.

Because if the left had a gun culture, the NRA would essentially have nothing to stand on. They wouldn’t be able to argue that we’re trying to take anything away from anyone because gun control laws would also affect left wingers.

A liberal/leftist gun culture could be one that mimics car culture in that It would emphasize gun safety and gun education above all. In addition, I would propose requiring licenses in order to purchase a gun, and gun licenses would be obtained the same way that car licenses are.

coolwithaslightchanceofgay  asked:

thor and dizzee would get matching ufo tattoos on their 30th anniversary.

☺ that’s so cute but let me take it one step further and say that after thor proposed to dizzee, in addition to wedding bands they got matching tattoos on their inner wrist and on some anniversaries if they’re feeling especially in love (such as their 30th anniversary) they add to it
so now there’s like 20+ interconnected and intricate tattoos that they designed themselves trailing up and around their arms

Marry me, Jeremy thought and had to bite his tongue to stop the words.
Fuck.

R1 as Pacific Rim!AU

you knew it would happen eventually

CHIRRUT / BAZE: Fighting together side by side in a jaeger since their early days. When Chirrut is blinded by a kaiju Baze becomes his eyes once they are in the drift, a place that Chirrut also calls the Force, while Chirrut remains Baze’s fixed point so that the drift does not lure him down rabbitholes. Their jaeger is the Guardian. It is colored with sandy reds and dark blues and is loaded with blaster guns. Additionally, from a slot in its right leg produces a metal electrostatic staff that unfolds to its full size for battle usage.

JYN / CASSIAN: After ‘recruiting’ Jyn from a prison camp to find out more about the superweapon, they go head to head about the usage of the jaegers in these battles. After a bout of arguing and getting into a brawl the Resistance notes their compatibility. At first they are resistant to the notion, even as far as refusing the neural compatibility test, but after a run-through in the dark grey K2sO Jaeger they find they have more in common than they thought. Their weapon specialties are blaster rockets for long range attacks and dual swords for close range.

BODHI: Formerly a cargo shuttler for Krennic turned Jaeger technician for Chirrut/Baze and Jyn/Cassian. It is with his knowledge that they are able to sneak onto Scarif, the holding facility which has the superweapon’s plans, and courier them back to the Resistance for safer usage to defeat the kaiju. Later on he is proposed/initiated as an additional pilot for the Guardian (which would undergo maintenance to adapt to this addition).

bonus:

GALEN / KRENNIC: former Jaeger pilot team. Old tensions remain after Galen retires from the Jaeger program and at first refuses to help Krennic build a destructive weapon that could potentially kill all kaiju but also could wipe out most of humankind in the process. The only ones who would be except would be select people whom they feel would be “proper” for continuing humankind. Krennic still feels the sting of this and hates Galen for everything that has happened since. Their former jaeger’s name was Catalyst.

So, if Junkrat and Roadhog were confirmed to be not-straight, that’d be more mlm representation in video games, and it would ease any worries about queerbaiting. However, I propose at least one additional small benefit:

This means less dudebro straight guys would play them, meaning less times where I have to suppress the urge to shout “WE DON’T NEED ANY MORE DEFENSE HEROES, WE’RE PLAYING ATTACK, CAN YOU NOT READ THE FUCKING ‘TOO MANY DEFENSE HEROES’ NOTICE?!”

Yes I’m a Junkrat main but I put team balance as a higher priority

THEORY TIME

I just found some interesting stuff. Marlene tweeted that the answer to the meaning of the Patsy Cline song will be revealed in the finale. The song was “You belong to me” (the song that played when Caleb tried to open the file).

I looked up the lyrics of the song, and when you read them they are clearly emotional, and sound as though something was lost. Then I looked up the meaning of this song, and the history behind it is that it was originally written in the 1950’s about lovers separated in the time of world war 2. This focus was shifted to a more modern meaning, “into a universal song about separated lovers”

Then a screen cap from episode 5x25. The significance of this episode specifically is that it was the only other episode that featured a Patsy Cline song “walking after midnight”. Here are the lyrics if you don’t remember.

So then Spencer says in the scene from 5x25 “no matter what A takes from us, we will never lose our love for each other.”

So, given that Marlene said that this song has emotional meaning, it makes me wonder who will be the one who dies, after seeing that A.D tombstone drawing.

The song is about separated lovers, so we know Emison is out of that mix, so it either has to be Spoby or Haleb. (Maybe Ezria, but I doubt it and here’s why)

In addition to this, there is a proposal/wedding coming up, and I’m assuming it’s not the one we already are aware of (ezria).

Also, Ezra already got shot once so they wouldn’t do that again. I hope. Omg.

Anyway, the writers of this show never do anything by coincidence. Everything is well thought out and planned when filming. And the ONLY scene where this Patsy Cline song played in 7x16 was a Haleb scene.

Could this mean that A.D is going to kill Caleb? That would match the significance of the song, about separated lovers.

Let me know what you guys think! I’ll probably add to this later if you guys have thoughts on it. Feel free to message me with ideas 💡

Swimming's governing body wants 10 more Olympic events, including mixed-gender relays

Katie Ledecky could be headed for more medal opportunities by the time the next Olympics rollaround.

On Monday, swimming’s international governing body FINA proposed to add 10 more swimming medal events to the 2020Tokyo Games, including two mixed-gender relays.

The proposed additions, which are awaiting approval from the International Olympic Committee, would bring swimming’s Olympic program to 44 events.

New events would include the women’s 1500-meter freestyle, men’s 800-meter freestyle, two mixed-gender relays (4x100-meter freestyle and4x100-meter medley), men’s and women’s 50-meter backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.

The proposed events are currently swum at FINA’s World Championships every two years, includingmixed-gender relays, which debuted in 2015. Each country uses two men and two womenin any order.

While the 1500-meter freestyle is believed to be Ledecky'sstrongest event, sprinters would actually benefit most from the new proposed changes and makeMichael Phelps‘ record 28 Olympic medals seems a bit morefeasible.

M*. Will we get a decent make out scene in s3?

rebelpride927  asked:

I have a question that I can't seem to figure out myself. I'm not looking for an aggressive argument, I just want an answer. Why is it that the pro-lifers are so anti-extended maternity leave and free healthcare options for mothers? Wouldn't you wanna give that mother and child all the possibilities of living a decent life? Not one in poverty or bad health? THAT is more pro-life than anything...

Fair question, however, I think you will find that the two positions aren’t necessarily connected. The reason it seems that way is because the pro-lifers you see also being “anti-extended maternity leave” and anti-”free” health care options are also conservative. This means that as a rule they value freedom over coercion. So in that respect, we aren’t anti-extended maternity leave at all. In fact, I am all for extended maternity leave, as long as it is voluntarily provided. Something which business are beginning to do with more frequency. I will even take it a step further, I am also for women( or men for that matter) having semi-permanent maternity leave, that is, staying home with their children should they choose to, and the primary way to do this is by re-building of the nuclear family and increasing wages for the primary earner.  

What I have a problem with is forcing companies to provide these benefits .  While they seem to be “free”, in reality that money comes from somewhere and I don’t believe you have a right to take another person’s money just because you chose to have a child. Furthermore, I think that a few extra months with your child, while beneficial for bonding and development, will not solve financial issues since eventually the mother will have to go back to work long before the child is ready for school. So forcing others to subsidize their life doesn’t even solve the problem you are proposing it will solve.

In addition, I disagree with the idea that forcing others to fund your life choices is more pro-life than actually not killing children. A child can live and have a wonderful life full of love and happiness without a couple months of extra time with mom, but they can’t survive being yanked out of the womb early with a pair of forceps. So I still think not killing the child is more pro-life than being opposed to forcing others to provide for the child.

So to summarize, it is all about rights and force.  What right do you have to seize the property of others? What right do you have to end the life of another person? and because both of these positions emphasize the rights of the individual to retain their life, liberty and property, they can co-exist perfectly well.

As he allows his mind to wander, to daydream and start to construct a picture of the coming years, he realizes it’s a startlingly familiar image. It’s Derek sitting at the kitchen table, scribbling in one of his many leather-bound journals while Will cooks dinner. It’s Derek lying next to Will in a massively oversized (and comfortable) bed, peering down at a book through reading glasses, the light of the lamp next to their bed glinting off his hair and illuminating the touches of silver in it. It’s Derek on the couch, having fallen asleep while waiting for Will to come home from work late.
