thinkin about my two hundred different embarrassing and completely self-indulgent daydream universes that i’ve actually taken time out of my day to create content for and have never shared with anyone bc they’re that embarrassing but not being able to stop bc they’re one of the few things that bring me genuine joy
Professor Longbottom is the head of Gryffindor house and the Ravenclaws don’t understand why, because if Professor Potter killed Voldemort, shouldn’t he be head of house? So as Ravenclaws do, they pushed the subject even though it wasn’t their business (mostly because Gryffindors just shrug it off and move on). Ravenclaws asked headmistress McGonagall why, and she just responds with “Because Professor Longbottom is a more exemplary Gryffindor.” And the Ravenclaws are like “what? No?” So they take the matter to Professor Potter and ask him. He just laughs and says, “I fought because I had to, because I was chosen by Voldemort, and was magically linked to him, I had no way out. And Neville was chosen by the death eaters. He faced more enemies personally, and he could’ve ran and hid, but he was the face of the revolution here. Neville stood his ground while I was in hiding.”
And all the Ravenclaws become awestruck and ask for more information, and both professors just brush off the subject. And because the Ravenclaws are who they are, when history of magic has it’s lesson on the war at hogwarts, they pay more attention than anyone and soon have a deeper understanding and respect for Professor Longbottom.
On Ke$ha’s hit 2010 song, Blah Blah Blah, she says “zip your lip like a padlock”. I never even questioned this 7 years ago but I’ve been thinking about it lately. It makes no sense. Padlocks don’t zip.
you don’t burn and there are no tornadoes in your chest, your hands don’t hold galaxies or stars and your anger isn’t a volcanic god ready to smite every enemy. the moon doesn’t love you and neither do the stars, but the earth does, in its own way, i guess.
see, you are human, my dear, born to destroy and to take and to make, born to learn and to watch. you observe the stars; they do not observe you.
you run from tornadoes or you chase them, you do not become them. your anger is just anger an emotion to control or be controlled by; volcanoes can stay dormant for years but you are never still.
and why would the moon love you? why would the stars? they are too far away to be swayed by a pretty face, but the earth lives under your feet, it feels you dance to the beat it drums out in thunder and rain.
you are human, fragile and while your skin is weak your heart beats strong. it might not hold hurricanes but it does hold love, and this can be just as deadly. your anger won’t ever level cities but it can topple friendships and they amount to the same thing.
the poets were wrong. you are not out of this world, you are of it and beloved to it, and you are still special.
I’m calling it “Yurio Catches Puberty” as a working title. (PG for swearing and puberty.) (Warning for body image stuff, very minor.)
“WHEN WILL THIS BE OVER?”
The scream of anguish from the rink’s locker room shower made Yuuri look up sharply. He’d only arrived in St. Petersburg yesterday, but this couldn’t be normal, even if nobody else seemed to be paying the slightest attention.
It was definitely Yurio.
“Yurio?” he started to ask, but Georgi clapped a hand over his mouth.
“Don’t engage,” he hissed.
Yuuri looked at him, wide-eyed.
“What’s going on?” he whispered, as Yurio began a steady, at least quieter stream of cursing in Russian, then English, then Japanese that Yuuri definitely hadn’t taught him.
“Puberty,” Georgi said.
Yuuri blinked. “Puberty?” he asked.
Georgi gave him a disgusted look. “Of course,” he mumbled to himself. “The golden boy didn’t suffer puberty…”
He wandered off, now also cursing, and Yuuri had ten seconds of silence before Yurio kicked the shower door open and strode out, towel around his waist.
what i found the most amusing thing about tony antis is that they honestly think that they are the mayority of the fandom, that common people universally like steve when in reality, outside their american asses, people fucking LOVE iron man
for example my best friend has probably seen two? marvel movies? in her entire life? but she Knows who tony stark is. I live in Buenos Aires and there’s a gigantic Fucking Mural of Iron Man on a park. The general public Loves iron man, and more or less Hate Captain America. Not because of Steve Rogers himself but because of America™
And honey, we are Millions. We love Iron Man. We Will go see his movies. Until rdj apears in Every Single Marvel movie in existence we will Not be satisfied.
After chapter 23, I feel like I need to write about Seungbae from an
unbiased POV. Let’s see what kind of a person Seungbae really is. Is he the hero of the story?
Reasons why Seungbae is a good cop:
1. He’s strict about law. 2. He’s focused on his job. 3. He’s good at remembering and connecting the details. 4. He wants to do good. 5. He’s motivated. 6. He has a good instinct.
Reasons why Seungbae is a bad cop:
1. He breaks the law when he thinks it’s convenient while expecting others to always obey the law. 2.
He indeed ‘makes up stories’ often (even if they are true) because he
relies on gut feelings a lot rather than logical, solid evidences. 3. His obsession with Sangwoo for petty reasons. 4. He considers himself above the law and better than everyone else. 5. He’s edgy and mentally unstable. 6. He got demoted once before. 7. He gets physical/violent when things don’t go his way. 8. He abuses his authority as a police officer.
Things Seungbae has done wrong as a cop:
1. Abusing his authority to get what he wants. 2. Lying to get into someone’s house and without a warrant. 3. Hiding evidences from his superiors. 4. Secretly investigating a ‘case’ without telling his superiors about it. 5.
Pressuring/trying to manipulate someone into giving him the black box
(even though black boxes are private the person could decline). 6. Threatening/blackmailing people into giving him what he wants. 7. Peeking into someone’s property (and ‘linger/loiter’). 8. Stalking. 9. Assaulting another police officer 10. Hacking his superior’s computer. 11. Using his police badge illegally to force people into giving him information. 12. After seeing the footage of Sangwoo assaulting someone, he was not concerned about that person’s safety but he’s still obsessing over Sangwoo. (Some of these are from @ikemen-in-suits list)
Why Seungbae seems like a good guy:
Between Bad and Worse and The Worst, he’s the bad! People
who work in the police department are constantly slacking off and are
pretty much useless. The only person who’s trying to do his job properly
is Seungbae. So despite all the unlawful, wrong things he’s done, he
seems like a good person because everyone else is horrible. And the
reason fans also see him as a saint is because he is constantly being
compared to a serial killer. ‘So if Seungbae doesn’t kill people
brutally, he must be a good guy.’ (?) But he is indeed trying to do good.
Is Seungbae really a smart cop?
the evidences he’s found so far were by luck. The hair happens to be
from Sangwoo’s house and belong to Bum. The driver who was speeding
happens to be Sangwoo, he happened to see them and so he managed to get his black box. Whether he’s getting closer to the serial killer or not, Seungbae’s
approach is very comical and illogical. A normal, good officer would
connect the solid, logical evidences together to find the
killer. But what Seungbae is doing is placing the one person he’s
obsessing over - for trivial reasons and because of his gut feelings -
in the middle and trying to connect all the crimes to him instead. He’s
He remembers a case from 3 years ago, his first thought is “It could be Sangwoo’s work.” He
finds a black hair on his foot (which is a pretty common color in
Asia), his first thought is “It must be from Sangwoo’s house.” He finds out a girl is missing, he doesn’t suspect any of her friends but “What about Sangwoo?”
He finds out a guy is missing, his first thought, “It could be Sangwoo’s work”
He talks to witnesses, his first question “Do you know this guy? Oh Sangwoo?”
There are millions of people out there doing suspicious things. Why does Seungbae just assumes Sangwoo must be the killer
and even goes as far as to investigate it? His evidences are nothing
but gut feelings, guesses and luck. So no, I think being smart and
having a good instinct are different. He’s a pretty lucky guy!
“…he’s smart and really good at connecting the dots. people say he’s a bad
cop but he has to do some wrong things in his situation to be able to
do anything at all!“
This is an ask I gotI’m going to ignore the sarcasm that was in the beginning, anon >_>. This is true. As
I already mentioned, he is indeed good at connecting the dots but what
are the dots? Are the dots solid evidences or just gut feelings again?
Yep, mostly gut feelings. He suspected Sangwoo because he makes him
uncomfortable.(!) He doesn’t like how calm Sangwoo is and as he mentioned
before, Sangwoo creates different atmospheres every time and so Seungbae considers him a liar! Again without any solid evidence.
is not a hero but as for his role in the story, it seems like, he’s supposed to be a flawed hero (an anti-hero) and not
a good person. At this point it seems like he will find out about
Sangwoo and his crimes because he has a very good instinct. But when he
does, he will probably be all alone, there won’t be anyone to ‘save’ and there’s a surprise waiting for him. Two killers instead of one.
