With a little practise, Jason and Roy had gotten remarkably good at playing domestic. It wasn’t as difficult as they’d expected. (Jason, really. As Jason had expected.) It was, mostly, a pretty simple set of steps: wake up for breakfast (ideally before midday). Dress the kiddo. School runs. Movie nights. Tea parties. He’d even followed Roy to a PTA meeting or three with only mild snark (an impressive feat of self control which did not go unappreciated). A real classic semi-nuclear family,

But a vigilante is a vigilante, and all it took was a strangled cry from Lian’s bedroom at one in the morning to send them both snatching their weapons from beside the bed.

[A/N:  A missing scene I wrote up for Stan and Ford getting their shit together in the finale, because I do wish they were able to get more of a resolution before the mind wiping and everything that came with that. 

Heavily inspired by @pinesinthewoods‘ art/idea that Stan seeing Ford’s electric burns and various torture injuries was what put the final nail in Bill’s coffin.]

Maybe it’s the look of utter resignation on his brother’s face, an expression that - despite everything Stan might claim otherwise - elicited a white-hot pang of protective anger within him. Or maybe, it was the fact that the kids had put themselves in mortal danger to buy them precious minutes of time, and Stan Pines would be rather be damned than let them down - than to let them realize he was hardly the hero they thought he was.

He gritted his teeth. “Can it, poindexter. We’re not doing that.”

“Do you think I want to let him back into my mind?” Ford pleaded, voice strained. “After everything he has done to me in the past -” 

He cut off with a shake of his head. “…Stanley, the moment I make the deal, take the children and - run. Don’t look back. Don’t try to save me. It’s not worth it - not this time.”

ESPN suspends Stephen A. Smith for 1 week

CNNMoney: ESPN announced commentator Stephen A. Smith will be suspended for one week in the wake of his remarks about domestic abuse.

On “First Take” last Friday, Smith was discussing the assault charge against Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice and the leniency shown by the National Football League, which suspended Rice for only two games. Smith said that while men “have no business putting your hands on a woman,” he had tried to tell women in his family, “Let’s make sure we don’t do anything to provoke wrong actions.”

Smith apologized for his widely-criticized remarks on Monday.

Right wing scaredy cats (reblog from August 2010)

So, I published this in 2010, but in light of the Republican (and some Democrats’) response to the terror attacks in Paris, I thought it deserved a second airing:

One of the great ironies of the last 20 years, really since the fall of the Soviet Union, is that many politicians, many but not all Republicans, present themselves as aggressive defenders of American freedom, but they are in fact cowards.

You know the type. These are the politicians who insist that the United States needs to fund its military far beyond anything anyone else in the world can even imagine doing, all the while seeing bogeymen around everywhere, all on the verge of destroying the United States. Likewise, they demand that the US use violence to impose its will and punish those who transgress our desires. They are the disciples of American triumphalism.

Yet at the same time, they quiver in the face of the eternal bogeyman. The “Ground Zero” mosque, some FOX commentators have told us, will be a “terrorist command center” in the heart of Manhattan. We are told we have to spy on our fellow citizens because the bad guy is coming to get us. Saddam Hussein is Osama bin Laden’s neighbor in terror, they insisted, and so we had to go over there before “they” came over here.

Now, I get the point. Fear, like sex, sells, and when you need to keep a defense industry alive, or when you need to advance a political agenda, it helps to have a public sold on the notion that some bad guy is on the verge of destroying you. And since the United States actually does have enemies, and actually does need to be able to defend itself as well as enact a foreign policy that supports its central role in world politics today, bogeyman claims seem credible. They “make sense” to the American people. (Which is, however, not to say that the United States really needs to have a military that is more expensive than that of the next 50 countries in the world combined–most of whom are our very close allies.)

But here’s the thing. The United States is really, stupendously, impossibly strong. For all of its social ills it is remarkably stable domestically. Its social, political and cultural influence is globally pervasive. It has fought at least one utterly ridiculous war–Iraq–and possibly two (Afghanistan) with very little impact on the daily lives of American citizens. (The limited domestic effect of the Iraq war is, of course, one of the sad reasons Americans have tolerated it for as long as they have.) Its people endured 8 years of one of the worst Presidents in American history and have beaten back at least the first wave of what might well have become another Great Depression. And through it all, children went to school and college, cars got bought and sold, and American Idol winners got chosen.  American society, like the Dude, abides.

Even on that horrible day, 9/11, the core strength of the United States was clear–as was the profound weakness of our attackers.  After all, the terrorists that day had to steal American airplanes to enact their violence on the nation. This is not at all the same thing as the Soviet Union launching 20,000 nuclear weapons against American and allied targets. Or of Hitler sending 3,000,000 men 1500 miles into Russia, killing tens of millions as they fought for three years.

And, of course, rather than wilting after those attacks, Americans–and the rest of the world–grew stronger.

So even if the “Ground Zero” mosque were actually a “terrorist command center” (which of course it isn’t), the truth is that “they” can’t beat us. They can hurt us, but they can’t beat us. American culture is too big, too complex, and way, way too powerful to be beaten by something as weak and pitiful as a group of people seeking to impose their perverted understanding of 7th century Islamic values on the world at large.

It seems clear to me that the fear mongers and pro-violence blowhards are actually plain, old fashioned cowards. They see monsters under the bed. And then, not being idiots, they fashion a political agenda that serves their interests.

But cowardice like that ultimately hurts the United States. Our best security is in living up to our ideals, not recoiling from them when things get tough.

What America needs is heroes who believe in its ideals, not blowhards who trade in fear for political purposes.

Yes…yes…there will be a part four–but that’s the last part. I swear!

Summary: In the wake of tragedy, two polar opposites come together for one commonality, their Goddaughter–Viola Mellark. Based on the movie, Life As We Know It. Gadge. Modern AU.

Happy Reading, friends. Thank you for your support! 

This is my first Gadge, you know.



“Do you think that Vi is growing at a good pace?” Madge asked as she bathed the little girl in the tub, her knees on the tile floor. She looked to Gale, who sat on the closed lid of the toilet. “I mean, Regina is three months old and she’s almost caught up to Viola.”

“Haymitch is a tall man and Johanna is pretty lanky herself,” Gale reasoned. “Of course, their kid is going to be the Amazonian type.”

“I’ll be sure to tell Johanna that.” She carefully lifted Vi from the tub as Gale handed her a towel. “Though she wouldn’t care…unless it so happened that when Regina was of legal age, you tried to make a move or something gross like that.”
