reason 1 why i love her

50 Things I’m Convinced Tay & Joe Do - Baby Edition 

1. Taylor smirking at Joe who claims that the air in the doctor’s room is dry which is the reason why his eyes are watering right after they found out that they’re having a girl.
2. Joe’s protective hand constantly reaching for her belly at night whenever she’s changing her sleeping position.
3. Joe opening his Christmas gift from her that was casually placed under the Christmas tree and him becoming incredibly emotional in front of both of their families because inside the little box, there is a positive pregnancy test.
4. Taylor and Joe only telling their families and closest friends about her pregnancy at first because Taylor’s too scared to miscarry.
5. Joe replacing all Nespresso capsules in their houses with decaf capsules because he knows how hard it is for her to waive proper coffee.
6. Taylor developing a weird disgust towards roasted meat yet always attends dinner at Joe’s family and eats the Sunday roast even if most of it lands in the toilet just minutes after they get home.
7. Joe always telling Tay that his mum won’t be mad if she’d tell her about her meat related nausea but Taylor still swallows the food anyway.
8. Joe being overprotective, especially on these days when she’s not feeling well and he’s gone for work. So as soon as she doesn’t pick up her phone for a couple of minutes, he’d immediately call Andrea who then has to calm him down with a soft laugh and a gentle “both of your girls are alright, honey. She’s watching TV with me and her phone’s in the kitchen, so don’t worry.” while Taylor would roll her eyes at his protective behavior but deep down knows how incredibly thankful she is for it.
9. Scott always teasing Joe with referring to him as “Daddy over there wants some more potatoes, Andrea” or greeting Joe with “Hi Daddy, how’s it going?” whenever they see each other.
10. Taylor trying to convince him that their daughter needs to have an old classic and British name such as “Hazel” or “Eleanor” and Joe reminding her that she’s giving birth to a baby, not an old lady.
11. Taylor feeling incredibly maternal at the end of the second trimester and most of the time falling asleep with a pull string musical crib toy on her belly that plays one of her songs (a gift from her fans, of course).
12. Joe spending at least half an hour cuddled up to her belly and talking to the baby after not having seen Taylor for a couple of days, always kissing the round belly and telling her how sad he is sometimes because Taylor gets to carry the baby around and feel her all day, but he can’t.
13. Taylor and Joe constantly fighting about her wanting to wear heels tonight, and him getting angry because she could trip and fall.
14. Taylor being mad at him for an entire day because she thinks that he thinks that she’s too stupid to walk on high heels for the length of one evening.
15. Joe figuring out that the only way to deal with her current hormones is to always give in and let her know how sorry he is and how right she was.
16. Joe constantly finding her asleep at the weirdest places in the house. Once on a stool with head on the kitchen isle, once on the floor in her walk- in closet.
17. Taylor feeling like a teenager again because she finds herself crying so often whenever he’s gone filming for a couple of days and she misses him badly.
18. Taylor being mocked by everyone in her family because she developed the habit to “free the bump” whenever she’s sitting on the patio and a ray of sunshine is crossing the sky. “The baby needs Vitamine D, guys. Shut up.” she’d say, enjoying the warmth on her belly.
19. Joe volunteering in applying cream on her belly to prevent stretch marks every night.
20. Taylor having an increased need for sex in the first months and Joe teasing her with it as much as he can, smirking and mumbling a casual “got it out of your system, love? If yes could you please move a bit so I can watch the rest of this movie? Thank you.” after she just came down from the fifth orgasm that day, sitting on his lap and distracting him from watching a movie on the couch in the living room.
21. “So rude.” she’d mumble and receive a mischievous laugh from him before cuddling up in his arms again.
22. Joe’s standard joke being “I mean, I was in the room when the baby was conceived to I might as well be in the room when the baby’s delivered” whenever he’s asked wether he’ll be in the delivery room or not and Taylor rolling her eyes every single time, “He thinks he’s so funny, it’s incredible.”
23. Joe having the shock of his life when Taylor fainted a couple of times during the first weeks of pregnancy because of low blood pressure, which is absolutely normal yet scared the shit out of him.
24. Joe literally calling her every two hours to remind her to drink water and eat something when she’s at a meeting because he knows that she forgets.
25. Joe literally going nuts after some online magazine releases an article calling Taylor “huge and lazy” because she apparently doesn’t work out enough during pregnancy which results in him wanting to sue the media outlet but Taylor calming him down because she doesn’t give a fuck about this kind of stuff anymore.
26. Taylor feeling her baby kick for the first time when they’re at dinner with her parents and Joe really trying not to be too emotional and become a cry- baby but keeping his hand on her belly for what feels like the entire evening.
27. Taylor craving nachos with whip cream on top.
28. Taylor sitting on the examination couch while waiting for her doctor, trying her best to bat Joe’s hands away from the model of a fetus in a womb: “Stop touching it. You’ll break it!” When the small plastic baby pops out of the fake uterus and onto the floor, Joe’s eyes grow wide and she just rolls her eyes while watching him hysterically trying to put the model back together again before the doctor enters the room.
29. Joe thanking her for carrying his baby and giving him his own little family whenever they both lay awake at night, but the pleasure is all hers.
30. Taylor hiding her big bump and boobs under oversized sweaters because she’s insecure about her physical changes.
31. Joe being well aware of her insecurities which makes him comment things like “you’re so stunning, baby. Is that shirt new?” or “you look gorgeous this morning, how’d you sleep?”.
32. Joe noticing how motherly Taylor has become because of all the hormones in her body. So every time Patrick is joining them on a winter walk she’d remind the boy to fix his scarf because „it’s colder than you think“ and every time Patrick has a cold she’d cook him a chicken soup, even If he didn’t ask for it which is why Joe and him can’t help but tease her constantly by calling her ‚mummy‘.
33. Taylor being embarrassed as hell for an entire week because her morning sickness was really bad while she and Joe were stuck in traffic and she had to throw up in a plastic bag after mumbling “I don’t want it to happen, I don’t want it to happen” while sitting next to him which resulted in her having vomit in her hair while crying and him calming her with a hand on her leg: “s’ fine, baby. C'mon. Just glad you feel better now.”
34. Joe’s mum bursting out to tears as she opens her birthday present and finds an ultrasound scan, which automatically makes Tay emotional as well while hugging his mum for more than five minutes straight.
35. Taylor often having trouble sleeping because she either struggles with immense nausea or her baby being super active.
36. Joe not hesitating to rub her naked tummy for almost an hour when she’s feeling super sick and can’t fall asleep while whispering in her ear how much he loves her and how happy he is with her in his life.
37. Joe waking up one night with tears in his eyes because in his dreams he was holding his baby in his arms and he could see what she looks like and smell her and hear her laugh and everything felt so real, which was the most amazing feeling he has ever felt.
38. Joe noticing how Taylor craves his closeness even more since she’s pregnant which is why he pulls her into a long hug as often as he can or kisses her forehead more often.
39. Taylor showing literally everyone she knows her new “trick” that is placing objects on her huge belly like a tray.
40. Joe counting all ten toes and all ten fingers on the baby, first thing: “just want to make sure you’ll be able to write some songs. Or make action movies..“ he’d mumble towards the baby, making Taylor laugh from afar.
41. Baby Alwyn- Swift having all of Taylor’s features, blonde curls included, but Joe’s lips and his rather introvert personality.
42. Joe holding the baby in front of Taylor’s tummy and mumbling a sleepy “we’ll have to put you back in there again if you don’t sleep, love. m’ warning you. The nights were a lot quieter with you in there.” which makes Taylor laugh and the baby stare at him confused before receiving a laugh and a small kiss from her dad.
43. Taylor announcing the birth of her baby on Instagram with posting a black and white photo of Joe kissing tiny baby feet and the caption “Never felt so blessed in my life. Thanks for all the congratulations and kind messages.”
44. Joe pretending to eat the baby’s foot or hand which always makes the little one laugh and Taylor as well.
45. Taylor posting a boomerang on Instagram for fathers day that shows Joe blowing raspberries on the baby’s stomach with a smile on his face and captioning it with “you have changed my heart forever. Happy Father’s Day.”
46. Joe already spoiling his little girl when she’s just a little toddler and Taylor really not liking it: “He can’t say no. Never. Now she’s just a baby but if he keeps that up our child will be a spoilt rat in a few years” she’d complain to her mom.
47. Joe surprising Taylor with a vacation to the Bahamas because the baby hasn’t been sleeping at all in weeks and they both wander around like ghosts all day long which is why they both urgently need some relaxation away from London and Nashville.
48. Joe realizing that his baby daughter has a miniature version of his lips which is why he always holds her tiny face right next to his for comparison when they’re with friends and family.
49. Joe giving the newborn on his arm a tour around their house when both of their parents came over for a first visit at home. He’d stop with her on his arms in the bedroom and mumble “..and this is where you were made, my love” which results in her family’s laughter and an embarrassed Taylor yelling “oh my god, Joseph. You are unbelievable.”
50. Joe teaching his little girl how to give kisses and always claps his hands to cheer on her whenever her lips made the right move to meet his. After some time, the baby girl loves to give her daddy wet kisses and afterwards automatically claps her little hands as well which makes Joe and Taylor burst out in laughter every time.

Request: Got7’s Jinyoung + the Hades AU part 2 with prompt 8 💕💕
8) “Why am I so afraid to lose you when you aren’t even mine?”

Part 1 can be read HERE

Convince me that you want to be here
It’s not my trick that keeps you so near
You chose me. You love me. This is real. 
No silly seeds sealed the deal.

No need to say; I know why you go
I won’t block your way, make a big show
Just tell me you weren’t hungry that day. 
Just tell me I’m the reason you stay
-Lee Ann Schaffer

“Really it’s your father’s fault,” Demeter sighed as she tucked your arm under hers. She patted your hand gently as you both walked slowly toward the now familiar beach that led it’s way to the underworld. 

“It’s no one’s fault but my own, mother,” you sighed, taking a last look at the mortal world for the next six months. The trees and plants dotting the edge of the sand line were already beginning to turn brown and a crisp wind cut through the air. 

“Oh no,” your mother clucked, shaking her head. “It was your father, and that bastard, Hades.”

“Don’t talk about him like that,” you sighed. You were already wary with this argument considering it had seemed to drag on for the past half of a year. “He is my husband after all.” 

“Just because he’s your husband doesn’t mean he makes good decisions,” Demeter grumbled, pulling away from you, and crossing her arms. 

“Mother,” you groaned. “Can you blame him? To be honest, I think I’m the only person outside of the underworld who had treated him with any sort of compassion. And he’s the only person who’s ever showed me such passionate attempts at lov-”

“If I didn’t know any better, it sounds like you actually don’t mind disappearing into the land of the dead for months at a time!” she snapped, turning away from you. “Don’t you miss your poor mother? Your worried father?” 

“You were literally just blaming my father less than two minutes ago,” you sighed. “We can’t change this arrangement, so I’m not going to make the worst of half of my life. You’re going to have to get used to the idea that I’m married to Jinyoung and-” 

“You call him Jinyoung?!” your mother gasped. “What has he done to my little girl?” 

“Nothing yet,” a familiarly cold voice sounded from behind you. “Are you ready, dear?” 

You turned, surprised that Jinyoung had made the trip. His familiar, black umbrella shadowed him, protecting him from the sun’s bright rays. He was just as handsome as you had remembered, and you couldn’t help but feel comforted that you would be making the journey down with him. 

“I should have known you were close,” Demeter hissed. “The wind carried the scent of rotting flesh through the air.” 

“Now, now, momsey,” Jinyoung smirked. “No need for such harsh comments. I’m taking good care of your girl.” 

“My girl, Hades,” Demeter spat. “My girl who needs her mother.” 

“Let me carry this for you,” Jinyoung hummed, ignoring Demeter and taking your bag instead. “I’m happy to see you’ve brought things to stay this time.” 

As his fingers graced yours, he leaned down, placing a light kiss on your temple. You shivered at his touch, momentarily pleased before realizing he had only done it to infuriate your mother. You let out a groan and winced as her expression grew darker. 

“Six months,” Demeter muttered through barred teeth. “I will be here at exactly this time to retrieve me daughter.”

“You’re always welcome to visit before then,” Jinyoung smirked coyly. “My home always has room for family.” 

“You are no family of mine,” Demeter whispered, leaning forward to place a kiss on your forehead. “Stay strong.”

“Right, gotta go,” you grumbled, shifting your weight. “See you, mom.” 

“It’s been lovely as always, Demeter,” Jinyoung nodded, shifting the items in his hands so he had a free hand to place behind your back. He gently guided you down the beach and toward the next half of your year. 

“You’ve been quiet the entire way here,” Jinyoung sighed, finally breaking the silence between the two of you as you arrived back to his mansion. 

“I was taught that if I didn’t have anything nice to say, I shouldn’t say anything at all,” you muttered, shouldering open the front door. 

“I’m guessing you learned that lesson from Zeus?” Jinyoung chuckled. “Because surely it wasn’t something passed down from your mother-”

“Stop! Okay?” you gasped, raising your hands into the air. “Can’t you just stop already?” 

Jinyoung’s eyes grew wide as he watched you spin toward him, your arms flailing in exasperation. “Darling, I-”

“No!” you croaked. “Do you know how hard it is to be placed in between you two? Half of the year I’m busy trying to ignore your passive aggressive comments about my mother and during the other half I have to defend you to her! I’m still not even sure how I feel about you sometimes, Jinyoung!” 

Jinyoung’s mouth hung open as he internalized your words. He shut it and opened it again as he attempted to gather his thoughts. “Is - is that right?” 

“You don’t make this the easiest situation sometimes,” you groaned, turning away from him. An expression of hurt covered his face and you knew if you gazed at him for too long, your resolve would crumble. “Do you recall…when you first brought me to the underworld? Before the contract you agreed upon with my father? Do you remember how kind you were? You treated me with compassion and respect. I was your Queen ruling beside you. You considered my thoughts…always…but ever since you had tricked me that day…that day you knew I would be forced to remain in the underworld if I ate that pomegranate…you haven’t exactly been on my list of favorite people.” 

“The last time you visited-” Jinyoung began. 

“You mean the last time I was contractually obligated to visit,” you hissed. 

Jinyoung took a deep breath and shut his eyes for a moment. “We had grown. We had come to terms…” 

“We had agreed that both of us were too selfish to miserably continue,” you sighed. “But maybe I’m too head strong to forgive. Just when I think my husband is someone I can manage to love…he reminds me of the situation we’re in.”

Jinyoung nodded, his jaw tensed as he began to grind his teeth back and forth. “If you were given the choice,” he whispered. “Would you be here now?” 

“If I were to be honest,” you nodded. “I don’t think I would.” 

Jinyoung had gone numb. He was used to feeling cold and emotionless, but never this deeply affected. His heart, if it were to beat, had frozen. All of the emotions he had harbored for you stung like a venom he had injected within himself. As you spoke, he attempted to come to terms with the fact that there was no antidote for this type of love, and he would rather be hurt by you a million times over than ever have you return to the mortal world. 

But wouldn’t that be what was best for you? Returning to a land in which he no longer belonged? 

He supposed that wasn’t his decision to make. 

“Y/N,” he croaked, his voice raspy. You prepared yourself for a harsh comment, a statement of anger from him, declaring for you to leave his home and never return, but instead, what he said made your hair stand on end. 

“I need you.” 

You paced the large expanse of your room, the stone beneath your feet echoing with every footstep. 

You were terribly confused and near grief stricken. 

He loved you. He loved you terribly and with great need. He didn’t know how to function without the idea of you constantly lingering somewhere in the recesses of his mind. He had an obsession that he wasn’t yet ready to part with. 

And that frightened you. 

You had never been loved with such fervor when someone had such difficulty conveying it. You had never expected someone with as much power and intelligence as Jinyoung to fall love sick when you hadn’t done anything to entice him. 

He had loved you from the beginning, so he had an advantage. You could only learn to love him. 

But the situation made it so incredibly difficult. 

You bit your lip as you paused, staring at the lock on the door. You knew Jinyoung. He could unlock your meager attempt at solitude with a flick of his hand. 

But he didn’t. 

He knew you needed time. 

Just like he needed you. 

You continued your pacing, your thoughts sprouting in almost every direction. You wanted to love him. You really did. You wanted to enjoy the time you were forced into a completely different realm because you had him to spend your time with. 

But could your want be enough? 

You shuffled back toward the door and clutched the sterling handle you had grown familiar with locking. You pushed it open and tilted your head to view any happenings in the hall. You were met by the quiet R&B music you were used to hearing radiate down the hallways of Jinyoung’s mansion and couldn’t help but smile. You followed the sound as you had many times before and found yourself standing in the doorway of his study. 

Jinyoung took a shaky breath in as he leaned over his desk. His papers sat in neat piles around him, a reminder of how clean and uncomplicated he liked to keep his life. 

Honestly, you were probably the first thing in some time that had made it become complicated. 

Your eyes played across his curved frame. His clothing was a bit different than usual, looser than you had ever remembered. His hair was disheveled and he repeatedly attempted to push it back on his forehead, but to no avail. He cleared his throat as he began to flip through a few pages in a book opened before him and began to scribble in the margins. 

“What are you reading?” you asked, keeping your voice low. You were unsure if you were disturbing him, and didn’t want to be any more of a nuisance than you had become. 

“Nothing of great importance,” he sighed, not bothering to turn and look at you. His body relaxed as you spoke, melting into the furniture before him as he leaned. “How may I help you this evening?” 

“You don’t have to be so formal,” you sighed, taking the few short steps into the room to bring you beside him. “I wanted to…well, I wanted to apologize. Not about what I said…but how I said it.” 

Jinyoung straightened his stance into a standing position, glancing over his shoulder at you. “It’s understandable.” 

“But not what I intended,” you hummed. “Jinyoung, I know I can’t break a contract of the Gods, but-”

“But I can,” he nodded, turning toward you. He took your hand into his and smiled sadly. “Y/N, if you don’t want to be here, I won’t be the one to force you. It will be painful, and I don’t think I will ever hurt more than I will in that moment…but you’re free to leave. I’ll talk to Zeus, I’ll talk with the Fates. But I won’t be the one to imprison you any longer.” 

“What?” you breathed, your eyes growing wide. 

“If you love someone, set them free, right?” he continued, smiling through his pain.  

“And they’ll return if it was meant to be,” you whispered with a small nod. This was what you had needed. This is what you had needed all along to help you make your decision. “Jinyoung, I-”

“Why am I so afraid to lose you when you aren’t even mine?” he chuckled bitterly. “Why am I afraid at all? I’m Hades, for Zeus’s sake.”

You titled your head and narrowed your eyes. “When I’m not even yours?” 

“Not truly,” he whispered. He lifted his hand, placing it gently on your face. “I stole you…and you aren’t mine until you truly want to be.”

He retracted his hand, letting it fall to his side with a sigh. He nodded to himself as he bit his lip, his eyes filling up with a foreign matter he could only identify as tears. “And until then…you are more than welcome to return home.” 

Your heart fell to your toes as you listened to him, taking in his defeated stance and broken heart. You ached as you watched the scene. You knew what had to be done. 

Taking a deep breath you reached forward and placed your hand on Jinyoung’s chest, nodding to yourself in order to gain confidence. 

“I am home.” 

Jinyoung’s face lifted with your words, his eyes shining with a new brightness you had yet to see in your time spent together. 

“Well…at least for now,” you chuckled. You pushed yourself forward, entangling your arms around his back and burying your face into his neck for the first time. He remained frozen for a moment, his own hands hovering over your body before they finally closed the distance and encased you as you had secretly wanted. He nuzzled his face in your hair and let out a genuine laugh. 

“So you’ll stay?” he asked, his smile heard in his words. 

You grinned as well, leaning back to get a full view of his handsome face. “I will. And it won’t be for those stupid, six seeds anymore, Jinyoung…it’ll be for you. Just promise to lay off my mom, okay?” 

He nodded, kissing your forehead lightly. “Okay, okay. I promise.”

Five reasons to watch Netflix's new Anne of Green Gables adaption, Anne With An "E"...

So I didn’t think I would need to make a post like this but negative reviews that don’t do the show justice (particularly that horrible vanity fair article) have apparently left me no choice….
Overall, Netflix’s Anne With An “E” or simply Anne The Series as it was called when it originally aired on the CBC in Canada, is wonderful. 

here are five reasons why you should watch Anne With An “E” on Netflix:

1. Anne herself, Amybeth McNulty. 

Originally posted by greengableslover

Amybeth completely captures Anne’s spirit. I swear it’s like someone shook the book and Amybeth fell out of it. She plays Anne with all the dreaminess, quirkiness, and charm that we know and love, as well as adding more depth to her than we’ve seen in previous adaptions. This brings me to my next point…

2. Anne is portrayed as an abuse and trauma survivor, as she should be! 

Sure, we all love the lighthearted humor of Anne’s many misadventures in the original stories, and that’s still there in Anne With An “E”, but Anne was also the victim of a lot of mental and physical neglect and abuse in her past life before being adopted by the Cuthberts. In the show, she suffers from symptoms of PTSD and the effects of her past trauma are evident. The result of adding more details of Anne’s past do make the show darker at times, but the dark times only make the light times shine brighter, and we know there are more light times to come in Anne’s story!

3. Besides Amybeth, the rest of the cast is superb as well! 

All around, the casting is spot on and the acting is spectacular! I don’t even know what else to say here, but everyone is just so wonderful!!!

And don’t think I’d forget… you can count on me to give a special shout-out to everyone’s favorite slate smack recipient, Gilbert Blythe.  

Originally posted by violentfille

Lucas Jade Zumann is PERFECT as Gilbert. He brings a slyness and playfulness to Gilbert that was there in the books but glossed over in other adaptions. And by the way, his chemistry with Amybeth McNulty is everything you could ever ask for and more…

(side note: I would also like to throw out a special mention to Aunt Josephine Barry, no spoilers but she’s more lovable than she’s ever been)

4. The show tackles timeless and contemporary themes of identity, feminism, bullying, and prejudice.

Anne’s life, realistically, doesn't become all sunshine and rainbows as soon as she comes to Avonlea. She struggles to fit in and faces bullying at school. The show also addresses issues of sexism and classism and does a great job at it while accurately (for the most part) staying within the time period it is portraying. 

5. Everything about the show is high quality.    

From the aforementioned acting to the cinematography, music, costume design, sets, editing, and the GORGEOUS opening title sequence, everything is the highest quality and you can tell how much thought, time, effort, and passion went into the making of this show. 

Please give it a chance and check it out on Netflix, given the opportunity the show could grow and get even better if it is renewed for future seasons!


Effie Trinket + not being oblivious to the Capitol’s true nature

“I’m not sure. I just wanted to hold them accountable, if only for a moment,” says Peeta. “For killing that little girl.”

“This is dreadful.” Effie sounds like she’s about to cry. “That sort of thinking … it’s forbidden, Peeta. Absolutely. You’ll only bring down more trouble on yourself and Katniss.

so i rewatched 4.03 recently and talked to @wellamyblake about this and,, i knoW the list scene has been talked about to death, but right now i need to Publicly state that this is really, truly, the sexiest scene ever aired on the 100. facts only on my blog…

we could talk all day about the intimacy and context of this scene… but listen, this part ESPECIALLY where bellamy looks up while he’s writing her name on the list is HOT. two reasons.

1. he’s looking up to MAKE SURE SHE’S WATCHING while he writes her name. Making sure she can’t run away from this, that she can’t escape or misinterpret why he’s doing it. to make sure she can’t miss the fact that he loves her that much. he’s saying “you see this? you see me writing your name. you see how sure I am about it. you deserve to live, remember that.”

2. he’s meeting her eyes in almost a way that dares her to try to stop him or disagree. There’s so much defiance in this stare, telling her how wrong he thinks she is. how wrong ANYONE is who thinks clarke doesn’t deserve to live. and in that look– it’s almost a glare tbh– he’s declaring he’ll fight for her place on that list, even if it means fighting with her. 

and you can just see how much it shakes clarke. Like, immediately after he puts down the pen she lowers her eyes like she’s overwhelmed. And he immediately becomes softer, more relaxed, after he’s made this declaration . because he understands why it’s hard to get put on the list, or to feel deserving of it. but he’s firm about it all the same. 

tl;dr, there’s so much love declared through actions in this scene without a single word spoken, and… that’s really… really… wow.

“I can’t. I have the Stark internship.” I opened my locker to avoid looking at him. He would see right through my lies.

“Again? Didn’t you go there yesterday too?” Ned leaned against the locker beside me.

“Well, Mr. Stark expects me to work hard. I don’t wanna let him down.”

“Don’t you think you’re working a little too hard?” Ned crossed his arms.

“No! I just want to-”

About the coffin-smashing scene

Having seen various posts on this topic, I wanted to add my thoughts on why Sherlock “lost it” over Molly Hooper. I think it was because Eurus forced Sherlock and Molly to fast-forward through a potential romantic relationship and act out several intensely emotional moments that could really happen between them. As she said: “So many days not lived, so many words unsaid…” 

In this scene Eurus is literally making them live those moments and say those words.

All of these potential moments scare the life out of Sherlock, and are the (possibly unconscious) reasons he’s afraid a relationship with Molly would be doomed to fail, (the irony being that his fears are completely human and normal, in fact, sweeter than normal, because that’s who he really is).  

 1. Sherlock’s request for Molly to say ‘I love you.’

Originally posted by ladyofglencairn

In a relationship Sherlock is afraid he would be cruel to her, like this, he might hurt her, make her cry, and not understand why. If he is sociopath; she deserves better than him, and he won’t be able to avoid hurting her. 

 2. His first 'I love you.’

Originally posted by angel-in-me

In real life he might be terrified because he knows he has to say it, because she expects it, but he’s not sure if he does love her or even if he can love her in that way. He can’t lie to her; she sees right through him, so she’ll be able to tell if he doesn’t mean it, and then, no matter how much he wants her, he won’t be able to have her. 

3. His second 'I love you.' 

Originally posted by letsgetgladalecki

Here is the realisation that he’s an idiot: it felt the most natural thing in the world to say, because of course he truly does love her. He’s stunned, he’s human after all, and he would be joyful, if it were not for the fact that… 

 4. She’s about to die, because of him. 

He loves her, and now he faces the prospect of losing her, just as he lost Mary, and his time it’s entirely his fault for putting her at risk. By loving her, he’s shown he’s just as human as everyone else, and therefore just as vulnerable. Losing her will destroy him.

Originally posted by sarahjacquliner

So Eurus made Sherlock live all of that, in three minutes. That’s why it felt like vivisection. She pressed on his most sensitive nerves and made him dance like an ordinary human being. 

She opened up his beating heart and found sweet little Molly Hooper.

…october 1st

there’s a demon in my belly, at least one.
maybe two.
a hell couple in my guts whispering secrets up through my throat
my throat, my throat, my throat.
i know because caroline tells me so
and maggie may tells me i must be possessed.
well she’s a gen x baby so she must be right,
and me,
well i’m out cold when it happens, and sometimes
i think about the traps i’ll lay out in my bed
to catch those secrets the moment they escape my lips.

i talk in my sleep, you see.
mumbling, nonsensical, but they’re words.
secrets, my secrets.
“daddy says it’s demons,” so it must be,
because daddy brewed me from a hellish place
and rued the day i came out with the wrong parts.
daughter or demon?
you choose.

i talk in my sleep, they say.
you’re supposed to utter the word “rabbit” on the first of the month
when you wake, let it be the first word out of your mouth.
good fortune, i suppose.
but i talk in my sleep, you know.
i still utter “rabbit”, but what use is it when it’s not the first?
what good is it if my luck has never been in the cards anyway?

the only thing i can tell you
is that demons hate rabbits.

You were never the reason for his laugh, never the reason why his eyes sparkled. You were never the reason why he woke up every morning with a happy smile plastered on his face because he knew that he was going to see his most desired person that day. You were never the reason for his happiness; your best friend was.

He was your husband, she was your best friend. He only saw her, you only saw him. You loved him, he loved her

She was beautiful and friendly, her lovely character being the reason why he fell in love with her. He was bright, caring and handsome, the last fitting piece to her unfinished puzzle.

You, you were quiet, boring and blunt. You never liked to show your feelings to others. Locking everything inside your heart, you watched how she made him happy, never once complaining about how you were hurting. 

Why was love so cruel?

“You promised me, Y/N!“

Averting your eyes from your phone, you looked up at your best friend. “What?“

Rolling her eyes, she huffed loudly. “You promised me that you would divorce Taehyung!“

Copying her movements, you threw your phone on the sofa and walked to your kitchen. “Not again, Hani, please.“

Following you to your kitchen, she crossed her arms in front of her chest and raised an eyebrow. “Your family forced you to marry him, Y/N! You don’t even love him! Why aren’t you divorcing him?!“

Shrugging your shoulders, you kept searching for Taehyung’s favorite soup recipe in your cookbook. “I don’t want to disappoint my family.“

Slamming her hand on the counter, she started raising her voice. “Stop lying, Y/N! Why aren’t you divorcing him?!“

Looking up from the book, locked your eyes with hers. “I-It’s not the time..“

“Tell me the truth, Y/N!“

“Hani, I told yo-“

“You don’t want to divorce him, don’t you?!“

“N-No, Hani-“

Suddenly, Hani started laughing. “No? No?! Then why are you trying to look good for him? The Y/N I know wouldn’t mind going to the shopping mall with a pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt on. But the girl in front of me is wearing a dress in her house. The Y/N I know doesn’t know how to cook. But in front of me is standing a girl with a book in her hands, trying to cook the soup that my boyfriend loves!“

“Hani, please-“

“I can see everything, Y/N. The way you look at him, the way you behave in front of him, the way your eyes sparkle whenever he talks to you. Do you think I don’t see it?“

Averting your eyes, you looked down at your hands. She knew.

“You want to be his wife, don’t you?! You’re in love with him, aren’t you?!“

Standing up from the chair, you started shouting. “Yes, I’m in love with him!“

Ignoring her frozen face, you allowed the tears to roll down your face. “Yes, I’m scared that anything might happen to him! Yes, I’m cursing to everyone who makes him sad or is the reason why he isn’t smiling! Yes, I’m scared that he might leave one day without telling me anything!“

At this moment you couldn’t control your sobs anymore. “I’m trying to do everything so that he can be happy! He wants to be happy with you? Okay! I will do anything so you two won’t break up! I’m destroying myself so you two can be happy but you don’t even care, Hani!“

Shaking her head from side to side, Hani whispered. “I can’t believe you, Y/N..“

“You don’t even care when he’s gone! You don’t even care when he’s sad! You’re selfish, Hani! You call him whenever you want! You see him whenever you want! You never think whether he worries about you or not! Because you know, at the end of the day, he will come to you! You know that he will be by your side! You know that he won’t give up on you! But me?! I’m waiting for him every day, Hani!“

Hani started shouting furiously. “So you want him to give up on me?!“

“You don’t deserve him, Hani!“

A sarcastic laugh left her lips. “Do you think you deserve him?!“

“Do you even know how it feels like to love someone from afar, Hani? While your hugging and kissing him as much as you want, I’m fighting with the burning feeling inside of my chest!“

Suddenly, you heard a sound coming from the kitchen door and when you turned your head, you were met with your husbands shocked and frozen face. “T-Taehyung..“

Snapping out of his frozen state, Taehyung walked toward you and wrapped his arms around your stiff body. Nearing his lips to your ear, he started whispering the last words that broke your heart into million pieces.

“I’m sorry, Y/N. I hope you find the happiness you’ve been pretending to have as soon as possible but as you said, I’m not giving up on her..“

Andreil Playlist (+ Ideas for scenes in Netflix show)

Supercut - Lorde (I’ve seen a different textpost about how this song should be used for the “You were amazing” scene, with all the Andreil moments leading up to treat point in a flashback. Not my idea but i’s so great I had to add it!)

Nicotine - Panic! At the Disco, R O O F T O P S M O K I N G S C E N E “Your love’s a fucking drag but I need it so bad” could definitely be an Andreil quote, tbh.

Where Did The Party Go - Fall Out Boy, for the first time the Monsters take Neil to Columbia and he’s completely out of it in the crowd and oh - wow - Nicky kissed him and what the fuck is going on??

Champion - Fall Out Boy, for a training montage. The line “I’m a champion of the people who don’t believe in champions” reminds me so much of the foxes. And “If I can live through this, I can do anythingBecause we know they’ve been through shit (and their training is hard as fuck).

Stuck On You - New Politics, for the first Andries kiss, because we know both of them probably think "Why do I choose to love this?” On a daily basis, (mostly Andrew, but we all know he thinks it fondly while wanting to kiss Neil,) and they totally don’t regret it.

The Pros and Cons of Breathing - Fall Out Boy. Okay, so I’ve decided this song would be great for the first Andreil meeting because in that moment Neil is definitely thinking “ I want to hate you half as much as I hate myself” about Andrew. Also, “ I wish that I was as invisible as you make me feel” because Neil’s entire existence revolved around being invisible and, obviously, Andrew’s a little into pretending he doesn’t exist.

• Issues - Julia Michaels, a song about loving each other, flaws and issues and all. As obvious as it seems, what song could be more perfect? I do think this song would work for many different scenes, but I was specifically thinking it would work very well with their secrets game. The first one that came to mind was the one after Drake’s attack, but that is a little more serious than some of the others, so any of them would work.

•Rockabye - Clean Bandit ft. Sean Paul and Anne-Marie, I thought this song would work very well for flashbacks of Neil’s mother, well the woman they speak of in this song is way more kind then we know Mary was to Neil the overall protectiveness the mother is said to have over her son definitely reminds me of them.

• Love Me - The 1975, for some reason, well I was listening to this song, I thought of two scenes it could work for 1) the scene where Andrew throws Neil’s keys and his cigarette off the roof and Neil picks up his cigarette and gives Andrew’s “mock salute” and walks away feeling all smug 2) a rooftop makeout scene. I don’t know why I think this song would work, maybe because it says “love me, if that’s what you wanna do” and consensual love reminds me of Andreil.

• Talk Me Down - Troye Sivan, “I wanna sleep next to you, but that’s all I want to do right now,” reminds me of the cabin scene in TKM or the Fox sleepover, because it’s about innocent touches and just needing the other person near you, and considering it literally scared Neil how much just being around Andrew relived him, made him feel safe, I think this song is perfect.

• Fetish - Selena Gomez, and The Good, The Bad, The Dirty - Panic! At The Disco. Now, onto less innocent touches. Either of these two songs would be great for the shower scene, I first thought Fetish because Andrew calls out Neil’s “neck fetish”, but a song about fighting and falling in love, and being dirty, definitely also reminds me of Andreil. Though, one could always be used for one of their many make out sessions.

anonymous asked:

Bakugou saying I love you to his gf. He has a difficult time on saying it.

This says gf so I’m using she/her pronouns if that’s alright. *sigh* I need to go to bed soon it’s 1:10AM.

Admin G

It’s not that Bakugou doesn’t love his girlfriend, he does. If he wasn’t head over heels for her then he wouldn’t have confessed to her or asked her out. He’s aware that he’s not showy with his feelings and she isn’t in any way resentful about it, one of the many reasons he loves her. But, he can’t help but take the words, the whispers he hears, seriously.

That [Y/N], they’d say. Why would she go out with someone like Bakugou?


Why would you?

Why, when he can’t even say those three words outright? It should be simple for him! He’s done lots of scarier things than this being a hero in training. But, the reality, the levity of those words always left him thinking… if you knew how much you affected him, would you take advantage of it?

He shook his head. Of course, you wouldn’t do that. He tells himself that you won’t you won’t you won’t as he steadies his breathing and turns to look at you eating lunch next to him.

You look up from your food, concerned by the frustrated look on your boyfriend’s face. “You okay?”

God, she’s even pretty when she’s worried.’ He thinks and Jesus Christ he’s so gone for you. What comes out of his mouth is “You’re not an idiot.”.

You blink at him and laugh. “Thanks. That’s high praise coming from you.”

“I don’t have to tell you because it’s fucking obvious and you’re not an idiot, you should know.” Bakugou said without once stopping for air.

“Katsuki, reading minds is not my Quirk.” You answer, struggling to get a hold of the core of this conversation. “Is there something-”

“I’m in love with you.”

You freeze, staring into serious blood red eyes. You can see how hard this is for him and you dare not move, dare not breathe and risk destroying his composure. Your eyelids tremble with the need to blink and you think idly that this is what Aisawa must feel like all the time, like a tightened cord ready to snap.

“I’ve been… this way, for a long time. I don’t need to tell you-”

You get up from your seat and wrap your arms around him, biting back tears. “Thank you.” You say, kissing the side of his head. “Thank you. I love you too, Katsuki. It’s ok. You don’t need to say it. I’m not an idiot. I know. You show me everyday.”

Bakugou sighed as if only putting up with you because he’s got the patience of a saint. “I wanted to.” He says as he wraps his arms around you. “I said it because I wanted to.”

7 reasons why I love Utada Hikaru...

1. Her music videos

Traveling” (2001) is one great example for an amazing music video of hers. The song is about creative energy and charting previously unknown territory. Directed by her then-husband Kazuaki Kiriya, it is one of many collaborations between the two that happened from 2001 to 2006 - basically the time of her most daring video creations. So colourful, aesthetic and energetic, the music becomes one with the visual experience in each song. “Sakura Drops” (2002), taken from the same album (”Deep River”) as “Traveling”, showcases a similarly breathtaking visual journey.

2. Her lyrics

In myself, I see no dreams, like unpainted pictures
how many times must I fill this canvas?
I’ll abandon time as I hold a white flag overhead
I am your unknown color now - 

Thinking too much, don’t fall into desperation
A world that changes constantly feels like tricking a child
When people find themselves alone
They realize the meaning of love -  GOODBYE HAPPINESS 

If the key is too high, it’s okay to lower it
the song has the strength not to change
distress is only one passing point
like a bracelet that’s too big, things will slide into place - WAIT & SEE (RISK)

Looking up the translations for the first time has been a revelation. She writes and composes her songs all by herself (and even produces nearly all of them), making them even more heartfelt. They are about real, complex emotions, far more challenging than the usual “girl meets boy” pop song formula.

3. Her live shows

She is able to perform live like no other. Her vocals sound exactly as amazing as on the CD and she is able to constantly deliver with an amazing energy throughout a whole concert. And most of all, she can transform a song into a live bomb! While I already like the studio version of “Devil Inside” (from her English-language 2004 album “Exodus”), it is the live version that I definitely ADORE!

4. Her experimental mind

She is not afraid to venture into more experimental fields, producing songs like “Passion” (2005) (with another Kazuaki Kiriya music video) or “Kremlin Dusk” (2004). She is a hugely successful artist and somehow also manages to fit these experimental tunes in her repertoire..

5. Her joyful melodies alongside saddening themes

Watch the live version of “Goodbye Happiness here

Sounding like quite a happy song with playful melodies, “Goodbye Happiness” is actually about a saddening topic. And how she delivers this in one package makes it ultimately bittersweet in a way I could just cry with a smile on my face, singing along that catchy tune.

Oo all of creation goes ‘round and will go 'round
Oh oh oh darling, darling
No one can ever take your place
Only you

6. Her Evangelion theme songs

When the reboot film series “Rebuild of Evangelion” began in 2007, Utada was asked to provide a theme song to the first installment “Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone”. Being a huge fan of the original Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series from the 90′s, she agreed and wrote the song “Beautiful World” especially for this occasion. Lyrically very fitting to the franchise, it can be seen as another way of looking into the feelings of protagonist Shinji Hikari. Not being brave enough, yet still trying his best. The beautiful melody and atmosphere, the top-notch production, as well as the association with the anime made this my second favourite song of hers.

After a remix of “Beautiful World” served as the theme song to the second installment “Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance” (2009), she was asked again to make a song for the third film “Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo”, released in 2012. “Sakura nagashi” breaks my heart each time I listen to it. The sorrow, the pain that the death of a beloved one that come through in this song hurts like nothing else in this world. Yet, she can present all these emotions in such a grace and beauty. I cannot find many words that would do this masterpiece of a song justice, other than that it is one of a kind and one with the world and themes of Evangelion. My very favourite song of hers.

7. Her ability to evolve

Just a few days ago, Hikki (how her fans affectionately call her) dropped a new song, along with a music video featuring herself dancing a contemporary choreography by acclaimed dancer and choreographer Fukiko Takase. What blows me away the most is how she manages to make her melodies even more interesting the older she gets. She explores so many different harmonies, especially on her latest album “Fantôme”. While she may not be among the avant-garde in terms of arrangement and production, she is definitely able to keep her music interesting. This is very much apparent in her newest song “Forevermore”, which is carried by a string arrangement (something she has perfectioned recently) and her vocals, which together give us a mesmerizingly dreamy mix.

Still, there are many more reasons why…

…like her hauntingly beautiful smash-hit “Flavor Of Life”, her iconic debut single “Automatic”, the bittersweet “Final Distance” or her ability to create an actually quite original Christmas song. The aforementioned seven at least give a good overview over why I love Utada Hikaru.

Hey guys, this is GRACE (dearmyjimin), your resident Jungkook and Jimin stan. My blog has just hit it’s first-year anniversary and I wanted to start a series of yearly follow forever posts that serve as both a personal compilation of some fav graphics of my own (so that I can track how much I’ve grown as a designer), as well as to thank everyone who has helped me in one way or another. Each and every creation was made possible because of all the support I received. I wish to thank those who follow and support me, my lovely mutuals and friends who encourage me and all the blogs I follow for decorating my dash with amazing content.
