quotes and special posts

Sometimes there are certain quotes or lines in fanfics that never fail to take my breath away like “What was this writer thinking?” “How were they able to come up with something as good as that?” “This sounds like something out of a movie that people would use as their captions for as long as we can remember” Honestly? Kudos to all the writers out there

MBTI types as stupid Rajoy quotes

~ Requested: this is a special post in regards to today’s (failed) motion of no confidence to the Spanish Government. All quotes are by Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.
Note: all should be read with a 101% convinced tone.

INTP: “Do you think before speaking or do you speak after thinking?”

ESFJ
: “It will be agreed that being solidary is not the same as being solidary for nothing”. 

ISFJ: “It’s so good being able to speak well of someone who deserves to be spoken well of, and also speaking well of them because they deserve it”. 

ENTJ: The more you know, the better. Being an engineer or a football player can lead to many doors being opened”.

ESFP: “Spain is a great country, which does great things and has Spaniards”.

INTJ: “Sometimes the best decision is not to make any decision at all. Which is making a decision as well”.

ENFJ: “Friends are not made through substitution but through expansion”.

ISFP: “One should not be absurdly optimistic just as one should not be too bleak, because we all know this is an unreal view of the actual world”.

ENTP: “So, let’s see… Uh… Measures to create employment? Well, this very notable thing happened… I have it written right here, but I don’t understand my handwriting”. 

INFJ: “We are feelings and we have human beings”.

ISTJ: “Cars have to be driven on the road and airplanes have to fly from airports”. 

ISTP: “Long live the wine!”

ESTJ: “They’re increasing the value-added tax! That kid! Their candy! They’re increasing the value-added tax of their candy!

INFP: “This is not like water falling from the sky, no one exactly knowing why".

ESTP: “I’m off to watch the football match. The soccer team deserves it and all matters have been solved. I wouldn’t go if it wasn’t the case”. 

ENFP: “And the worse, the better for all. Better for me: yours. Political benefit”
(This is legit. Original version: “Y cuanto peor para todos, mejor. Mejor para mí el suyo. Beneficio político”.)

The Future/(is now)

I can’t believe this is something I saw with my own two eyeballs, because apparently all that’s happened so far wasn’t coincidence, or carelessness - apparently Dabb watched Season 8 and made a deliberate bet with someone - he’d make it gayer, or else. And so here it is, (almost) out of the subtext (Sorry, Dean and You can’t just go dark like that. We didn’t know what happened to you. We were worried. That’s not okay and I needed to come back here with a win for you and We’re just better together and I’d like that and THE TAAAAAAAPE). Honest to God, I think I read twenty versions of that fight yesterday as people scrambled to write pre-codas out of nerves and excitement, and they were all magnificent and yet, somehow, less shippy and less obvious and less romantic than what actually happened on the show, wtf? And Dean sulking in his room, Cas knocking at his door, hesitating, coming in? 

I swear to God - when Dean called him back, when he started telling Cas all those things - for a second, I actually believed he would yank on Cas’ tie and kiss him, because that’s always, always what happens in that scenario. Or, you know, Dean gets overwhelmed by his own feelings, by how much he’s just showed his hand here, and walks away. That’s also textbook fanfiction, and yeah, so it’s fluff instead of angst, but, come on - this is Supernatural - did anyone doubt it’d be angsty? Let’s just hope in a happy ending, because that Kelly voiceover (I love you. But we won’t ever be together. There is no happy ending for either of us.) gave me the creeps.

And what about the mind control, someone might argue. Mind control, schmind control. That’s like, the number one Prove that you love me forever and ever trope, and even if we’ve seen it before (if simply because Destiel has been built with every single love trope in the book, and, in this case, they used it over and over and over again), we’ve never seen its final form. During the crypt scene, Cas deflected instead of admitting the obvious (let’s be generous: maybe he didn’t know himself), and in the Bunker, Dean just barely managed not to kill Cas, and had to walk away before the Mark overpowered him, so no, that was not a good time either. So this thing we’ve been promised for a while - this My love for you is stronger than time or tide or evil curse - is yet to come, and with the way things are going, I’m feeling pretty optimistic.

Also: however Dean will read this when he wakes up, Cas is choosing love, and he’s choosing free will. He went to Heaven hoping they’d have a way out of this mess so that Sam and Dean would be safe, he stole the Colt so they couldn’t face Dagon and be hurt (which is text, by the way, not subtext), he went against orders because he felt that was the right thing to do (a human feeling, because angels are created for a mission), he stayed away from Sam and Dean to protect them - all of that is unangelic behaviour, and man, Dean and Cas are going to get into so many fights, aren’t they, because Cas learned how to love from Dean, and that means he’s got that same kind of stubborn, maternal, overbearing way to love Dean has, which means lots of I didn’t tell you because I love you and I walked away because I love you and I booped you to sleep because I love you and I really hope Sam’s going to stay out of the way, because there will be a lot of storming through corridors and huffing and outrage and Can you believe that bastard and it will be absolutely glorious.

As for the rest of it - though, to be perfectly honest, I barely noticed a ‘rest of it’ because my eyeballs were glued to the unbelievable Gay Feelfest unfolding in front of me - I’m really happy with it. I’m happy we’re finally talking Big Things again - Could either of you kill an innocent, do our parents determine our destiny, is there such a thing as innate character, and so on - and I’m happy with the insight we were given both in Kelly’s and in Dagon’s minds, and why they do what they do. I loved every scene Cas and Kelly had together, that kind of, We’re not heroes, and we may be worthless, but we’re what’s left vibe, and Cas’ smile when the baby was kicking, and I like where they’re going, how they’ll try to get this pregnancy to term. Sure, this baby’s got a lot against him - he’s Lucifer’s kid (although, we still don’t know who and what Lucifer was before he was forced to carry the Mark), and one of his temper tantrums could possibly destroy the Earth, but, then again, so could a lot of other things - he’s not special (to quote a famous tumblr post). And if we’re going with free will and self-determination of our own destiny, then we should have the courage not to nitpick: everyone should be able to decide for themselves, and this baby is no exception. 

(I mean, think about it. He’s clearly able to give anyone extraordinary powers - he gave Cas enough ammo to take down a bloody Prince of Hell - so he could have chosen anyone as his protector. He could have picked Dagon, he could have stuck with Kelly, he could have chosen any lesser demon or angel or random doctor they’ve been in contact with over the last few weeks - and yet he chose Cas, and Cas - as we’ve known for a while - is the curiosity, the abomination, the miracle: the angel who can love. No, I want to believe we’re headed towards good things here - narratively or otherwise.)

Final point: again, I know it’s not ideal to carry around a nuclear warhead in your belly, but the beginning of this episode gave me heavy The Handmaiden’s flashbacks (superb show, by the way, go watch it), so the fact they’re giving Kelly some kind of choice - that’s uplifting. Because yeah, maybe she’s slightly brainwashed, but this isn’t like any kind of brainwash I’ve ever seen on the show, because both Kelly and Cas are also lucid, completely themselves. They resemble most closely what Dean was like when he lost his memories, and I think now I’m going to go and cry forever at the implications. But hey, at least Cas’ got his own room at the Bunker and Yes, dumbass - we

Every time she laughs she hopes that he’s watching. Not so that he sees she’s happy but that maybe, just maybe… he’ll fall for her smile just as hard as she fell for his.
  • Amai: So let’s start by talking about the emotions you’re feeling right now.
  • 
Ayano: Stabbing.
  • 
Amai: Stabbing… isn’t really an emotion, it’s more of an… activity. Which I hope you don’t do it to me… See, an emotion is more of a feeling.
  • 
Ayano: Well maybe I feel stabby.
today I realized how high my standards became for love and I started thinking about characteristics and preferences that I liked but after a while I noticed that you were the only person that fit every quality
—  I just wish you knew you were that special to me.
Τέχνη

Μεγαλώνοντας είχα μια επιλογή να κάνω.Να είμαι ευτυχισμένη ή καλλιτέχνης.Είναι δύσκολο για έναν καλλιτέχνη να μπορέσει να είναι ευτυχισμένος με τόσες ανησυχίες στο κεφάλι του.Ένας καλλιτέχνης μπορεί να φτάσει σε σημείο να αμφισβητεί μέχρι και την ίδια του την ύπαρξη.Οπότε,πως να γίνει ευτυχισμένος;Μα προτιμώ να είμαι δυστυχισμένη παρά ευτυχισμένη.Γιατί από την ευτυχία δεν βγαίνει τέχνη.

Σε κάποιους λοιπόν,τους αρέσει να το λένε δυστυχία.Σε κάποιους άλλους αρέσει να το λένε μιζέρια.Σε άλλους αρέσει να το λένε αποτυχίαάσχημο,διαφορετικό,χάος,καταστροφή,βλακεία,ωμό,ανέκφραστο,πρόχειρο,όχι αρκετά καλό.

Εμένα μου αρέσει να το λέω ΤΕΧΝΗ και είναι απίθανο να δημιουργήσει κανείς τέχνη χωρίς τα παραπάνω.ΝΑΙ είμαι δυστυχισμένη και μίζερη.ΝΑΙ το έργο μου είναι αποτυχία,είναι άσχημο,είναι βλακεία και πρόχειρο.ΚΑΙ ΝΑΙ εγώ είμαι διαφορετική,είμαι καταστροφή,σκέτο χάος.Είμαι ωμή και το βλέμμα μου ανέκφραστο και απαθές.

Όχι...δεν είμαι αρκετά καλή.Οπότε, δεν διαφέρω πολύ από την τέχνη μου.



Είμαι καλλιτέχνης.Είμαι τέχνη.
