scraps of my love

cupcakes are totally a breakfast food

Welcome Baby Isaac!

On the rainy, cool evening of October 27th, 2016, Isaac Alexander Moridzadeh, entered our world and forever changed our lives. It was love and excitement and apprehension and trembling and pure joy at first sight, and all of the books and the planning and preparation could not have explained or prepared us by any means for what was in store. We brought him home after our stay at the hospital and began to slowly (albeit shakily) learn the ropes of parenthood. Our love has grown tremendously and five months later, I can say without hesitation that he is the center and the light of our lives.

The photos above are from our first week at home (isn’t it crazy how fast they grow and change?!) and even though it was only a few months ago, I’m already finding myself nostalgic for the sleepy and ever so sweet newborn stage. 

I’m looking forward to all of the time, all of the love, all of the laughter, and even all of the tears that we still have in store with this beautiful being. We love you so very much, Isaac.

I thrive on angst, Paper. Who better to draw from than an immortal demigod with self-esteem issues who is branded with his greatest failures?

okay, look. I was originally just going to yell at you. Because how dare you. How dare you project all your hurt and angst and wrong onto Maui like this.

But then, for some awful reason, my traitorous brain took a second look at this ask, and went hey. you know what would go much better with this?

A PROMPT RESPONSE.

I hope you’re happy with yourself. This is entirely your fault.


Maui’s honestly not even sure why he still gets like this. Why they still bother him. They’re all in the past, they’re done, they’re over with. They’re just a bunch of problems- problems that are no longer his. Problems he’s had enough talks with Moana about to know that they’re just not worth his time.

His mistakes. His failures, branded into his back. Pushing down on him. They shouldn’t bother him. He’s lost track, at this point, of just how many years it’s been since he’s made them. All he’s sure of is that Te Ka’s been there for at least a thousand, and Tamatoa’s been there for at least two. Knowing that should make him feel better. That these mistakes are in the past. Done. Dealt with. Over. Te Ka’s, as a matter of fact, is negated entirely. By the tattoo of a certain wayfinder resting over his heart.

Agents of Shield Season 4 Episode 19 Theories

AOS 4×19 – All The Madame’s Men
Daisy finds herself teamed up with an unlikely partner. Meanwhile, Aida prepares to put her ultimate end game into effect. 


Guest starring are Brett Dalton as Grant Ward, Mallory Jansen as Madame Hydra/Aida, Jordan Rivera as Hope Mackenzie, David Weiss as serious man, Patrick Cavanaugh as Burrows, Zach McGowan as The Superior, David O’Hara as Alistair, Ben Cain as Hydra agent, Andy Comeau as Hydra doctor and Kavita Patil as Mrs. Lee.

We had the synopsis and now we have the teaser, let the speculation begin!

First up Ward:

How can anyone think that he doesn’t care about Daisy/Skye. Look at the anguish on his face! His helplessness and the pain! I know this Skyeward is going nowhere but let me have my scraps, please. I loved Skyeward in season 1 and this is a taste of what it could been. A shade of what it could have been rather because Daisy is not in love with him but he clearly is. He is not the real world Ward, who hid his feelings. He loves Daisy and makes no bones about it. UGH!! This is more pain than I bargained for!

A Mama May and Daughter Daisy team-up! Finally! HYDRA has no idea what they’re about to be hit by. May and Daisy on their own are formidable but as a team, they can lay waste to pretty much anyone and anything dumb enough to stand in their way. I can’t wait to see to lay waste to HYDRA on their way out. 

I’m concerned that while Daisy does turn into an Inhuman, she doesn’t gain her usual power. Which might explain why both May and Daisy are using guns when she could have just ‘qauked’ their way out of the compound. I think half the episode will deal with their breakout while the other half will see them reunite with the rest of Shield.

And can you imagine Daisy’s reaction to seeing Trip!? They were partners and he was there when she went through the change, in the chamber. He died trying to protect her. Also May and Coulson will finally be on the same team. I’m curious to see how much Coulson remembers when it comes to May. In episode 18, he told her snap out of it and called her May when clearly they hadn’t met before. But I don’t think it really registered with him. On the other hand, there was a sense of familiarity when he was addressing her even when he didn’t know her. 

The only thing better than a May-Daisy and a Coulson-May team-up is a May-Coulson-Daisy team up! So many things to look forward to with this episode…

I think Ophelia gets hurt somehow when Daisy and May escape which would explain why Fitz is out for blood. His father, Alistair is just an all-around turd and he just really needs his ass kicked. I wonder what new game Ophelia is playing and can she die in the Framework or does it work differently with her.. Not sure, these are all questions we need answered.

Episode 20 doesn’t list Brett Dalton or BJ Britt as guest stars which is disappointing. But we do know that Alistair Fitz is in the episode. So I’m a little confused. I think the first part of the episode takes place at wherever the backdoor is which is why only the core team is listed. I’m guessing that Trip and Ward get them there and then work to distract HYDRA from their tails.

The synopsis mentions that not one everyone may want to leave the Framework and the usual suspect is Mack for obvious reasons. But what if, it’s not him but Fitz? What if his programming is so deeply ingrained that he doesn’t want to leave? Or he is so wracked with guilt that he doesn’t think that he deserves to wake up? It’s just that it’s too obvious for it to be Mack and I don’t trust things when they are so obvious when it comes to AoS, the writers love tearing out the audiences’ hearts and this would be the perfect way to do it.

I just want the writers to give us one moment between Daisy and Ward that isn’t marred by the past and the real-world Ward. Just a moment that brings full circle what they could have had and what it could have been, I am hoping the writers don’t turn him into a triple agent, that would suck and just be a rehash of season 1 and honestly, I think it would hurt the show and that’s the last thing they want.

There is also a possibility that either Daisy or Jemma go back to the real world to get some back-up maybe and the other person stays behind. It would make sense for Daisy to stay behind since she has powers now.

There is literally no information about episode 21 and 22. We don’t know the guest stars nor the synopsis. For all we know, they only make it out of the Framework in episode 21. I wish ABC released all the episodes at once so I could binge and put myself out of my misery.

I cannot wait to watch the remaining episodes!!!! Please renew this show already.. It is so good and deserves better.

as much as I shit on Zelda, I really want to love her to bits. I got all these cute little Zelda and Link doodles in my scrap box because I want their love to be genuine sooooo bad. So to all those ppl who think I’m out to hate Zelda arbitrarily: I guarantee you that I am not!!! I just feel so passionately about the REQUIREMENT that developers sell it to me in a real way so I’m not doing all the goddamn legwork and mental gymnastics myself to make this relationship work. 

“I feel like, with some people in your life, eventually, sometimes, or just suddenly, you hear your heart say, ‘I hope someone finds this person and makes them realize how good they are, and makes them smile and feel lovely about themselves.’

“And then you pause and say, ‘Didn’t I want to be that person?’

“Perhaps, once, you felt a very obvious yearning. Now it’s been replaced with this?

“But now you’re not feeling pain at the thought. You feel an incredible happiness at the thought of someone else’s happiness. You’re rooting for them as hard as anyone ever could.

“’I hope, someone, someday, finds you and treats you the way you deserve to be treater. That would make me ecstatic. That is what you deserve.’

“And that’s when you know, truly, that you are no longer in love with someone in the traditional sense, but in love with the concept of their happiness.

“And that means you are finally free.”

We speak of our privilege, our power. We are the ones who died and chose to serve again. I can’t lie; we’re blessed and the position is one of power. With it is of course the immense responsibility, but there’s always mercy. We’re not perfect and we never will be. Dead and still somehow alive. It’s not suffering, though. It’s assurance that I was once a servant among the living. I long to touch the earths like I did when I was alive, you see…I speak as deliverer of the highest Currency, and still I miss the waters of my homeland. It’s proof of who I am and my place in this universe.
