I’m seeing people say stupid things in the tags about Iris. Fun fact: she can understand that he had to leave to save the world AND still be upset that she was left alone, that her fiancée left her hours after she got her life back. It’s called having emotions, Black women have those !

“Why me?” - Alec Lightwood

(not my gif)

REQUEST: Jace is (Y/N)’s twin brother but she is the exact opposite of him (shy, don’t talk a lot, self-conscious about herself), and Alec ends up saving her from a demon and tells her he likes her.

“Come on Jace, leave your sister alone.” Alec said as Jace was showing off about his last missions.
“I’m just saying, I’ve killed more than twenty demons in my last three missions. How many demons did you kill in the last three months, (Y/N)?” Jace asked with a smirk.
“Jace, shut up.” Alec said half friendly.
(Y/N) rolled her eyes and went to her room. She sat down on her bed and burried her face in her hands.

Jace was (Y/N)’s twin brother. He was confident and cocky. Jace was everything (Y/N) wasn’t. She was shy, quiet and self-conscious. (Y/N) was so different from her brother, sometimes she was convinced she had been adopted, or put in the wrong family, maybe even in the wrong world.
(Y/N) loved being a shadowhunter but she couldn’t help comparing herself to her brother and everybody knew that Jace was one of the best shadowhunters of his generation. Everytime Jace was bragging about his missions, (Y/N) felt like maybe she didn’t belong to this world, it would explain why she wasn’t as good as her brother.
(Y/N) also loved her brother, but Jace was the opposite of her and it was difficult to have a personal conversation with him. They weren’t very close but they would always be willing to die for one another. They were a family, after all.

(Y/N) lifted her head up when she heard someone walk into her room. It was Alec. (Y/N) felt her cheeks blush so she burried her face back in her hands. (Y/N) had a crush on Alec but she was way too shy and scared of rejection to talk to anyone about it, especially not Alec.
“Are you okay?” Alec asked.
“Don’t do that again.” (Y/N) said. Alec frowned. “You don’t need to defend me when my brother makes fun of me. I can handle it on my own.” (Y/N) didn’t mean to be rude but somehow it all came out pretty agressive. (Y/N) shook her head and sighed.
“I didn’t mean to upset you. I’m sorry.” Alec declared.
“No, I’m sorry. None of this is your fault. I shouldn’t take it all out on you. Thanks for caring about me, though.” (Y/N) smiled a little and looked down.
“Of course I do. I will always care about you, (Y/N).” Alec said very seriously.
(Y/N) looked at him. Alec was about to add something when Maryse Lightwood walked into the room. (Y/N) wished people would knock before entering her bedroom.
“Ah! There you are. Something came up. You two need to get ready for a new mission.” Alec’s mother ordered. (Y/N) held back a complaint. She had just came back from another mission and she had been training all day. She was exhausted.
“What about Jace and Izzy?” (Y/N) asked.
“They already left. They went to see Meliorn to get some information. Why? Is there a problem?” Maryse asked with her usual cold attitude.
“No. I was just wondering.” (Y/N) lied.
She knew that if she told Maryse that she was too exhausted for a new mission, she would be seen as weak. And (Y/N) didn’t want to be called a coward in front of Alec.

As (Y/N) and Alec got to their location, Alec kept looking at (Y/N) with concern.
“Are you sure you’re okay?” Alec asked.
“Yeah, I’m fine.” (Y/N) lied.
She was tired, she couldn’t remember the last time she slept for more than two hours in a row. And the few injuries she got from the last mission were still healing and sore, and everything hurt everytime she was taking a new step.
“(Y/N), I hope you know that not being as good as your brother doesn’t make you less of a good shadowhunter.” Alec declared. “You know that everything is a competition for Jace, but it’s not about the number of demons you kill during a mission, it’s about-”
“Watch out!” (Y/N) shouted as she tightened her grip around her seraph blade.
A demon came running on Alec and (Y/N) pushed Alec aside to take care of the creature. She pushed her weapon through the demon’s body and it disappeared into a cloud of dust almost immediatly.
“See, you’re a great shadowhunter. You just saved my life.” Alec said with a little smile on his face.
“Yeah, well, tell that to Jace.” (Y/N) chuckled.
“(Y/N), I need to tell you something, I -” Alec didn’t have time to finish.
(Y/N) screamed and collapsed on the ground. It took Alec a few seconds to see the demon that injured (Y/N). He killed it without a struggle and rushed to (Y/N)’s side.
“Damn it!” (Y/N) shouted as she held onto her shoulder, in pain.
Alec reached for his stele and drew the healing rune on (Y/N)’s injury. She winced and gritted her teeth.
“There. The pain should fade away in a minute.” Alec said. “Are you okay?” He added.
“I’m fine.” Alec offered (Y/N) his hand, she grabbed it and lifted herself from the ground.

After the mission, Alec and (Y/N) went back to the Institute. (Y/N) was still exhausted and a little bit in pain, but when she got to her room, Alec joined her there a few minutes later.
“Oh, sorry! I didn’t know you were about to go to bed.” Alec said as he saw (Y/N) in her night clothes -which were nothing more than a oversized t-shirt.
(Y/N) blushed when she caught Alec staring at her bear legs.
“It’s okay. What’s going on?” (Y/N) asked.
Alec walked closer to (Y/N) and she almost forgot how to breathe.
“I wanted to apologize.” Alec declared.
“What for?” (Y/N) frowned.
“Well, if I didn’t talk to you during the mission, you wouldn’t have been distracted and you wouldn’t have gotten hurt.”
“Oh, no Alec, it wasn’t your fault.” Alec looked down.
(Y/N) reached for Alec’s chin and lifted it up with her soft hand. “I mean it, Alec. It wasn’t your fault.”
Alec stared at (Y/N) and got lost in her eyes for a minute.

Suddenly, Alec put his hands on each side of (Y/N)’s face and kissed her. (Y/N) was surprised and shocked but she kissed him back. Alec let go of (Y/N), she looked at him with wide eyes.
“Why did you do that?” (Y/N) asked, almost blaming Alec.
“I like you, (Y/N).” Alec declared. He was feeling anxious and scared that (Y/N) would reject him. Alec knew how hard it was for (Y/N) to let people in.
“Is this some kind of joke? Did Jace dare you to kiss me?” (Y/N) felt angry. She knew her brother would be able to do something like that for his own entertainment. He always told (Y/N) that she was too hung-up with boys.
“What? No!” Alec said, confused. “Your brother doesn’t even know that I have feelings for you.”
“Do you really? Because I swear to God Alec, if this is a joke, it’s really not funny and cruel.” (Y/N) didn’t know what to think anymore.
On one hand, (Y/N) didn’t think that Alec was mean enough to play with her feelings. But on the other hand, she couldn’t believe that Alec could really like her.
“(Y/N), this isn’t a joke, OK? I would never do anything to hurt you.” Alec took (Y/N)’s hands in his.
“But why me?” (Y/N) asked quietly.
“What do you mean by that?” Alec frowned.
“Well, there are lots of prettier girls than me in this world. I’m not exactly the best shadowhunter, I am clumsy, shy and-”
“Hey, stop. You’re the prettiest girl I’ve ever met and you’re a great shadowhunter. I mean how many times did you save my life?” Alec chuckled.
“Well, how many times did you save mine?” (Y/N) mumbled.
“(Y/N), listen. I like everything about you, I really do.” Alec said. He sounded very sincere. “Now, I understand if you don’t feel the same way.” Hardly had he finished his sentence that (Y/N) pressed her lips against his. The two of them kissed passionately for a while.
“It was about time.”
(Y/N) and Alec turned to face the door and saw Izzy leaned on the door frame.
“Can’t you people just knock?” (Y/N) declared half laughing and half embarrassed.
“Fine. Fine. I’ll leave you two to it.” Izzy smiled and left the room.
Alec and (Y/N) laughed and kissed again.

Sometimes you shouldn’t burry your feelings or ignore them. Sometimes you just let them go, and who knows, maybe everything will be alright.

In the city of Numbani, humans and omnics live together in harmony, but everything changed when Doomfist attacked.

 Only the OR15’s, our city’s most powerful defense, could stop him. But when we needed them most, they didn’t stand a chance. 

 I took those destroyed bots and rebuilt them into something greater, an omnic named Orisa. She has a lot to learn before she’s ready to save us from Doomfist’s next attack, but I believe Orisa can change the world.

EDIT: So thank you to @almightyunnie for informing me that the second gif is from the music video called “Mama” by EXO-K where the lovely Suho has water powers. Thank you so much because I love that gif so much! If anybody wants to be tagged in Steve fics, drop me an ask. Thanks to the anon who requested this. I had a lot of fun with this, though it presents the same issue of being an accidental two-parter. Nonetheless, enjoy!

Prompt[s]: The Little Mermaid. Reader idolizes the avengersad just wants to be part of their superhero world, but her father is one of the peple who sees them as vigilantes and disapproves of her interest in them (maybe because her mother died in sokovia like ariels mother dies because of humans but that might be too depressing) and she saves one of them like maybe steve?

‘Part Of Your World’ (Part 1)

“The answer is no, (y/n),” your father commanded, standing to leave his study. You ran around the edge of his desk to stop him.
“Please, daddy,” you pleaded. “You… You said when I didn’t want to study engineering in favour of chemistry that you’d support my education. This would just be more studying!”

“I said those things before the accident. That trip to the chemistry lab is what gave you these powers! And don’t try to pull the wool over my eyes. Joining the Avengers recruitment program is not the same as university.”

That was all he had to say on the subject. Your father pushed past you, opened the door, and slammed it behind him. You turned a few circles on the spot in frustration, before spotting a glass of water on his desk. Focusing your breathing, you used your powers to lift the water into the air, throwing it at the door.

Then stop.

Prompt: 18 “I shouldn’t be in love with you” 98 “Hold me back!”

Fandom: American Assassin/Dylan O'Brien

Pairing: Mitch Rapp x Reader

Y/N sat on a lonely bench while darkness surrounded her as much as the darkness in her mind. No matter what she did she always thought of him. The mysterious man who now clouds her thoughts 24/7. There was something about his glare that was mysterious and inciting, that’s what caught her attention. His ability to act like he doesn’t care about anyone made her want to fix him in a way. 

Keep reading

What if…

After the events of azran legacy, possibly even after unwound/lost future, a woman with a girl (slightly older than Luke) appears in the office of Professor Layton, asking him for help.

The woman is looking for Professor Sycamore who disappeared after traveling the world with Layton. She explains who she is and why it’s important to find Sycamore. Layton is willing to help.

After a lot of research and tea they can find Descole, the man who Sycamore is now. In a surprisingly meeting with Layton and his two female companions the woman reveals herself to the masked man: Mrs. Sycamore.

Bronev wasn’t that bad after all, he knew the real identity of Desmond Sycamore all along and tried to keep his family save. But he was the leader of Targent (now), and so he needed to take action for the dumb man who didn’t accept to join targent - after many, many threats…
He faked the death of his family members, and brought them to a secret place to live until Targent found the azran legacy and would be no longer a threat to archaeologists and their families.

It took quite a while to hear about the imprison of Bronev but after that Mrs. Sycamore and her daughter knew they could finally reunite with Desmond.

At first Descole couldn’t believe it but cried when he saw his daughter and just hugged her.

——————————-

Maybe this doesn’t make much sense, has plotholes and stuff but Descole deserves a real happy end \QAQ/
I didn’t thought that much on designing his wife and daughter and went with the first thing that came in my mind while sketching xP

Unlike a lot of young female characters in films and television today, C.J.’s life isn’t about “When is Mr. Right going to come along and save me from this?” She is constructing her world for herself. I’m sure she would love to meet Mr. Right and run off into the sunset with him, but she’s not waiting for him to come galloping along. In the last scene [of season two] she had with Danny, he says, “Look, this isn’t a problem for me.” And she says, “It’s a problem for me.” She’s doing just fine.
—  Aaron Sorkin

On day one we fangirl over supercorp and on day two we analyze lol

Okay so as much as I like to think that Kara would choose Lena over the rest of the world, she didn’t do that yesterday. We all joked about how she would save Lena instead of saving the rest of the city but she wasn’t actually given that choice yet.


See if she had to choose between saving either Lena or the other part of the plane with the dangerous chemicals (if there was no other way at all), she would’ve saved Lena because that’s what she does. Her first priority is to save every life she possibly can.

The chemicals would cause a lot of trouble but they could figure out antidotes (like they did at the end of the episodes) and not many people are likely to be in the water at that time of the night so she would’ve done everything in her power to make sure that no one got in and with the help of Lena, Winn, The DEO and the rest of the city come up with a plan.

That’s at least what I think, @science side of the Supergirl fandom : what’s your opinion?

But honestly that scene was a little funny cause Kara should’ve been able to easily (okay not that easily) get both parts of the plane on the ground.

anonymous asked:

Hello JHH! I see there's a lot of analysis on G's persona on your blog so I have a question. G said she used to take herself too seriously and it was t a good thing. But I think she keeps taking herself too seriously, especially when in the U.K., with all the charities and peace talk and WE. She makes so many efforts to make herself look good that it looks bad. She could pick one charity and stick to it because she's not going to save the world! Know what I mean? Hope you will answer :)

That’s a tricky question, because on one hand, how could anyone do too many charities? But on the other hand, I know what you mean and I cannot totally disagree.

About taking herself too seriously, yes and no. There’s a side of her that is a goofball. It used to be predominant in her personality, it still is sometimes, mostly when she’s in the US in my opinion. And there’s the other side of Gillian that is serious and complicated. I took the We book and all the promotion and what she said during it as that one person she wants to be, not the one she is unlike what she kept saying. I think she wants to be happier, and more grateful and care less about what is said about her and yes, take herself less seriously, but I don’t think she’s there yet.
When you watch and read interviews from 3 years ago and compare them to nowadays, you can see there was a shift. Her general mood was way lighter a few years ago than it is now. That’s not something I can explain, it’s just a feeling, but I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one feeling this.

I’m not sure how to connect all the charity works she does to all this, and I guess it is not politically correct to state that she does too much. She used to be mostly affiliated with Sayes. I think her charity involvement grew a lot in the last few years, and she has probably tweeted for every cause on Earth already. Sometimes, I feel like being identified with less causes and organizations would have a bigger impact but who am I to speak when I the only good thing I did was buying the DVD of Sold, never receiving it and not even complaining about it?

How would the UT, US and UF skele-bros feel if their S/O/Crush (who doesn't show a tiny bit of emotion) never understands the concept of kindness and only does something nice if they get something in return or vice-versa?

Undertale 

Sans:  Hates to admit it but he gets it.  It’s better to not form real connections and to save what little empathy you have left.  But even if you don’t show your real emotions you could show some fake ones at least.

Papyrus:  Tries to show you what good can come from showing emotion and giving with out accepting anything back.  He uses Undyne as an example and gives her more and more bones until she ends up offering a training session.

Underfell 

Red:  Has meet a lot of people like you.  There are things that happen where you just decide that the world s*cks and it deserves to burn.  That it doesn’t deserve to hurt you any more and so you hide yourself away inside yourself and make sure the world will never take from you again.  He doesn’t bother you about it.

Boss:  Even though he acts very proud of you.  When the two of you are alone he lets you know he is concerned.  From what he has noticed when monsters get that way they become weaker and yet are focused solely on survival.  He doesn’t want you to get to that point and needs to know how he can help.

Underswap

Blueberry:  Wants to help you.  He knows this isn’t healthy.  Sure he isn’t always as happy as he seems but he doesn’t want you to have to hide your emotions like that.  But about your taking nature he gives you tips on how to not seem so transparent about it.

Stretch:  What made you like this?  Humans aren’t born like this, he knows that.  Was it something bad?  He wants to help but also isn’t sure what to do.  So he lets you be for the most part.

anonymous asked:

Some people hold the opinion that Queenie is an airhead. What do you think?

For starters, if you love the character don’t let anyone ruin it for you. There are lots of people who love Queenie and don’t see her this way. Admittedly, I relate more to Tina but I love both equally as characters.

Queenie has not been shown as an airhead. It was clear (at least to me) in the beginning of the movie that she doesn’t spend a lot of time outside of the house. Yes, she has a job but she doesn’t expose herself too much because of her instinctive legilimency. Queenie grew up in a world of magic but she is almost as deprived of adventure and excitement as Jacob was. Having a no-maj and a fugitive in her home, falling in love, saving her sister… all these were things for her and she experienced them with child-like enthusiasm. That’s not a bad thing.

Also, how was she supposed to be. Can we think about the things Queenie has seen in people’s minds? About the cruelty and deception? Can we imagine her pain when losing her parents and how grateful but also kind of guilty she would feel that Tina would have to take care of her and keep making sure that she is ok and her abilities aren’t getting out of hand? She should have been exhausted, mistrusting and bitter. Maintaining her innocence and shielding herself with too much kindness makes a lot of sense as a coping mechanism. 

This is a 5-movie franchise and we already see her developing. Her initial social interactions seemed awkward in many ways but there is a shift in the way she interacts with people. I think we start seeing this with her interactions with Newt more than anything. She is more level-headed when she talks to the most defensive person of their group and slowly, we see that she doesn’t just ‘read thoughts’ but she actually knows how to see who people are through them, she can use her gift to manipulate people and to get what she wants, she is quite brave (not because she is foolhardy but because she thinks that in certain situations there are risks worth taking). 

She is a really interesting character and has 4 more movies in which she can be further developed. 

Admittedly, she is the kind of character that I can see becoming darker by the end of the franchise and, at least one of the FB-quartet will have his/her loyalties tested, my money is on her. I’ve talked extensively about why I want this to and think that it might happen here.

Reasons Buffy Summers is the Best Character Ever: an Essay

She has defeated every single kind of penis metaphor imaginable.

After Kendra died, she continued to refer to her stakes as “Mr. Pointy” in her honor.

One time, she stopped a bully simply by glaring at him menacingly.

She loves Dawn more than she loves RJ’s jacket.

Ok, but seriously, she’s been through a lot of shit you guys, and she suffers from depression, and she had to work in a McDonald’s parody that probably ran out of Szechuan sauce, but she still saved the world and took care of her sister.

She once defeated the human embodiment of every internet troll that sends feminists rape threats, by kicking him in his metaphorical balls.

She once defeated the inhuman embodiment of an abusive boyfriend by kicking him in his non-metaphorical balls.

She is the lord and savior of all puns, and probably practices them in front of a mirror before she uses them in battle.

In my personal headcanon, she’s actually a closet lit nerd, because of that one time that she referenced Waiting for Godot.

It’s canon that she kept New Kids on the Block posters in her room until as late as 2002, and it is implied that this was a result of her being too lazy to take them down.

In conclusion, Buffy Summers is awesome, even if her creator is not.

Big dumb Sailor Moon episode 100

I’ve been wanting to post this for a while when I was rewatching it but put it off. But I just wanted to show this conversation between Minako and Haruka in episode 100 in Sailor Moon S.

The context for this episode is that Minako is having a bit of an.. identity crises I guess you could call it? Basically, she use to be very into Volleyball and was quite good at it. She also had a potential boyfriend in one of the other players. But once she became Sailor Venus she gave it up to focus on like… you know…. Saving the world and shit.

The first half of season S focuses on people’s “Pure Hearts” which are literal crystallization of people’s ambitions and working towards a goal or something they wish to accomplish. Minako has a lot of self doubt during this season because she feels she’s not really applying herself to anything at all, despite having lots of interests she’s not actively putting any effort into them. And she starts to wonder if she’s really making the right choice giving things up that could actually be intergral to making her be a better human being. Especially when it seems the other senshi all seem to have a better grasp on their personal lives and ambitions as well as actually fighting bad guys and saving the world.

Anyway, at some point in the episode while she’s brooding about this she runs into Haruka. At this point, Minako is not aware that Haruka is Sailor Uranus, nor is Haruka aware that Minako is Sailor Venus.

Minako brings up the question if Haruka has a boyfriend. (which is kind of a dumb question on her part. And yes, in the Japanese language track she specifically asks about a boyfriend). When Haruka says she does not, Minako goes on to pry, saying that “But you do have someone you like right?” and then goes on to ask “What kind of person does a race-car driving cool person like Haruka like?” going on when Haruka doesn’t answer with “Does it have to be a man with special talents about him?” (again, referring to a man which I’m 100% convinced is intentional on the writing part)

Now here’s where it gets interesting.

Minako is prying because she’s projecting her own want to pursue a relationship with a boy SHE likes. (Minako tends to project a lot). But because she’s a Sailor Senshi, she feels this may not be the right decision to pursue a romance when she is not a typical teenaged school girl.

She asks Haruka because Haruka is also in high school but is older than Minako (either by a year or 2 years depending on their birthdays) but is also very much NOT a typical schoolgirl. Haruka wears the boy’s uniform to school and is a prodigy race car driver (she is also a skilled fencer and piano player but the anime doesn’t bring that up often, generally focusing on the racing part). And more importantly, never does Haruka try to hide who she is. Minako is a VERY typical teenaged girl in her world view. She likes boys, she likes dating, she likes pop-idols, she likes fashion etc etc. She IS ‘Sailor Venus’ after all and the embodiment of Aphrodite in more ways than one.

So for Minako, figuring out how to be “a teenaged girl” as she believes one to be is very difficult when trying to accept “But I am NOT a typical teenaged girl”. And since Haruka bumped into her and asked her why she seemed upset, Minako asked her about this since Haruka is obviously NOT the kind of teenaged girl to chase guys and dates. And Minako, because of the kind of person she is, is looking for answers to “but how does one live and not just be normal like you’re suppose to?”

And Haruka answers this way, and honestly, I hadn’t realised when I watched this the first time how important this dialogue is. Not JUST regarding sexual orientation and gender, but just to the concept of “BEING NORMAL” we sometimes build up for ourselves:

At no point do either of them directly bring up the fact that Haruka is a lesbian and/or genderfluid, but it is 100% clear that this is what they’re discussing regarding the idea of “How to be normal” in Haruka’s case.

Moral debate (Sheena appreciation)

I’m sure most of you have gone through the “do you steal to feed your family/do you steal medicine to save someone” even though stealing is wrong. If you’ve ever done this in a group it can cause a lot of chaos and heavy debates. I don’t think people realize Sheena was in that moral question on a much longer scale. Her decision required so much strength, thought, and feelings. I can only imagine what she was thinking the whole time and how distraught she must’ve been until they realized the truth and strived to save both worlds. Because of her moral question, she was able to bring the Chosen’s group to the same question. Without Sheena, the Chosen’s group just might’ve destroyed Sylvarant without any thought until they were challenged by a moral issue. In short, Sheena is mostly responsible for saving both worlds and not just one. She deserves a lot more recognition.
