separated by decades

I hope we could spend more time together.

A few hours is better than never. 

If we could only make it longer. 

A whole day would be fine. 

A whole week would be fine. 

A whole month would be fine. 

A whole year would be fine. 

A decade would be fine. 

A century would be fine. 

Forever would be fine.

Stevie performs at the concert to celebrate the premiere of ‘Sound City’ at the Hollywood Palladium in LA - January 31, 2013

“The crowd hoots and hollers with approval. Though two decades separate Nicks from her band-mates, you couldn’t hear a generational gap in the music.” - Josh Baron, Relix Magazine

Do you ever feel like Steve Rogers and Remus Lupin should sit down and talk out their feelings? 

“I have a complicated relationship with my best friend.”

“Oh boy. First of all, SAME.”

things that destroy me across fandoms in no particular order: 

  • will and tessa and jem and the last 50 pages of clockwork princess, which, tbh, i am still not over and it’s been years
  • jamie and claire being separated for decades and still managing to love each other
  • Captain America’s inability to let Bucky go and vice versa
  • rhysand [i’d elaborate but i feel like it’s unnecessary]
  • we are groot
  • the marauders - every aspect of their friendship, deaths, and those they loved is heartbreaking
  • meredith grey did not deserve to lose the love of her life the way she did
  • rowan realizing that he loves aelin but trying to fight it 
  • jim kirk. oh captain, my captain. him and spock will one day live happily ever after and if you disagree FIGHT ME
  • robb stark did not deserve to die. he made ONE mistake guys, one really stupid, really frustrating, oh my god i need to stop this rant - 
  • which leads me to Jon Snow. his life has been so tragic and if he does not end up on that iron throne when all is said and done, i will riot
  • julian and emma and this stupid whole don’t fall in you love with your parabatai thing which is totally not going to come back to haunt them, nope sir it will not

reblog and add yours - i want a really long list of really depressing shit, guys

Commission from @meabhd​! I am utterly delighted by this. Seeing Annette and Ryan back together just makes me terribly happy. Meabh was super-awesome to work with and I just love her work on expressions and the poses and just… I am so happy.

For a bit of context, this is the first moment of informal reunion between these two. After being separated for well over a decade, the two re-encountered one another in a formal setting where a single mis-spoken word could have caused a war across several Courts. They agreed to meet one another once they survived the event to see what kind of people they’d grown to be beneath the masks.

Turns out that some things don’t change.

Current status: forever bitter that Kitster Banai wasn’t a more prominent character in Star Wars. So much lost potential. 

Just imagine, Anakin and Kitster meeting up again during the Clone Wars and catching up. Like, maybe Anakin and Ahsoka get stranded on Tatooine (maybe Obi-Wan’s there, maybe not). Anakin listens to Kitster’s story, about his fight toward freeing himself (or something else) and what he is doing at the moment. Kitster listens to Anakin’s tales of being a Jedi and fighting a war. Anakin introduces Kitster to Ahsoka, who immediately asks for embarrassing childhood stories about Anakin (Kitster tells her ALL the stories). Anakin starts to remember why he wanted to be a Jedi in the first place and starts having even more doubts about the Jedi. He talks to Kitster, and despite them having been separated for over a decade now, they are still very close. Kitster is able to help Anakin and Anakin is able to help Kitster.

I don’t know. There should have been more references to Anakin’s childhood in general, but especially Kitster. Especially Kitster.

Nightmare Night continues, AND it happens to coincide with an important date in movie history.  Today Marty McFly arrives in his future, our present, to ride hoverboards, order a Pepsi Perfect, and wear some flashy self-sizing clothes.  Happy October 21, 2015!

To commemorate the occasion, Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo have both dressed as Marty (from separate decades, of course) for Nightmare Night!

ladytharen  asked:

13, 22, 26 for the shipper meme!

13. Has a ship ever broken your heart? Hmm, probably? But I blame it on the writers, not the ship itself. (Han/Leia in The Force Awakens comes to mind. WHY DID THEY HAVE TO BE SEPARATED FOR DECADES, WHAT THE HELL WAS THE POINT OF THAT???)

22. Which of your ships have the best chemistry? I think all my ships have the best chemistry, or I wouldn’t be shipping them. :) Jeff/Annie actually exists as a canon ship because the chemistry between Joel McHale and Alison Brie was so apparent onscreen from the earliest episodes of Community. Logan/Veronica from Veronica Mars have pretty amazing chemistry, and apparently Kristen Bell and Jason Dohring’s chemistry onscreen had an inspiring effect on the writers. John/Aeryn from Farscape might win, though. Their chemistry is something else.

26. Have you noticed a pattern in your shipping? Is there a romantic dynamic you’re more drawn to? I don’t ship only one kind of ship, but if there are best friends who are obviously in love with each other, people who like and respect each other and make each other better, I’m almost certainly going to be shipping them.

A list of assumptions that this AU made

1. Chara is the narrator

2. Chara was able to SAVE/LOAD

3. Chara is not inherently evil, but easily influenced

4. Gaster was around when Chara was living with the Dreemurrs. No one remembers him clearly.

5. Sans is unable to remember other timelines other than shades of feelings like everyone else.

6. Sans can communicate with other Sanses via a transtemporal journal he can access and write logs to.

7. Sans’ shortcuts are him stopping time.

8. Asgore and Toriel have been separated for many decades, they are unlikely to become a couple again, but they may reconcile.

9. Sans has an interest in Toriel. Toriel has not considered it.

10. The seven sorcerers that created the barrier were sympathetic towards the monsters

11. Frisk never performed a genocide run.

12. Frisk is genderfluid

House Republicans Are Trying to Blackball the Climate Investigation into Exxon
The House Science Committee is dragging out the spurious narrative that science isn't in consensus about climate change, its causes, and effects.

ONCE UPON A time, climate science and politics were separate things. Then came several decades of scientific denial, distortion, and gaslighting. One of the companies responsible for politicizing climate change is ExxonMobil, which for years funded climate change denial groups despite its own research confirming that greenhouse gases cause global warming. Now, the battle to hold them accountable has become a proxy war between a lead denier in the US House of Representatives and groups that are working to make Exxon legally responsible for its actions.

Continental GT3, meet the Birkin ‘Blower’; Birkin ‘Blower’, meet the Continental GT3. The pair is separated by more than eight decades but it’s fair to say that both have made their mark on motorsport history. In this, the 85th anniversary year of Bentley’s famous 1930 Le Mans win, we’re thrilled to see the historic company back to winning ways

Going to the beach today with an advance copy of Until We Meet Again. It’s a YA time slip romance between a present day teenager and a dreamy stranger from the roaring 20’s. Separated by the decades they can only be together on a certain beach.

I sincerely hope it’s the beach I’m visiting, and that the previously mentioned swoony stranger has friends 😍

sometimes i think about how our understanding of things is shaped by our base-10 number system. age, for example. we assign so much significance to turning 30, or 40, or 50, because these are round numbers that separate convenient decade chunks identifiable by their tens digit, but this is arbitrary. if we had 8 fingers and counted in base 8, the teen years — well, there wouldn’t really be teen years, because “-teen” comes from “ten,” but imagining that there were — would be ages 11-15 (in our system), your 20s would be ages 16-23, your 30s would be ages 24-31, etc. if we counted in base 12, your teens would be ages 15-23, your 20s would be 24-35, and your 30s would be 36-47. what different ideas might we have about these stages of life if we divided them up by 8s or 12s instead

In 2015 Convergence happens, “The New 52” ends, and who knows what’s going to happen cause that’s no longer history, that’s the future. Will September take a break and do a themed month like the previous years? I would think not since April and May are breaking the previous system. The only thing that is for certain is that DC will publish comics, you’ll like some of them, you won’t like others, some will get canceled, new one will start up. This is the truth that has been true throughout all of DC History. And now that we are caught up to the present, this will be the last DC History (unless a new way to present the same facts comes to me).  I am going to do post with links to all the DC Histories in case you missed any of them and probably separate those by decades.

The Comings:

  • A Post Convergence line up

The Goings:

  • The New 52 banner
Honest question: Why do A&E like to separate Rumple & Belle so much?

Don’t get me wrong, Bobby & Emilie pull off angst like no other and the Rumbelle relationship is always so interesting (compared to the other ships, most definitely). But let’s take a look at what’s happened so far: they’ve been separated for decades and Rumple thought Belle was dead. Belle’s alive and well but then Belle gets amnesia for half a season. Belle gets her memories back then Rumple leaves for Neverland for half a season and leaves Belle behind. Rumple returns but in the next episode he sacrifices his life and dies. Belle thinks he’s dead but he’s actually revived by Neal, but then Zelena holds him captive for half a season. Rumple and Belle finally reunite and get married. You would think we would finally have a good Rumbelle season? That’s what I thought, but man was I wrong. Belle and Rumple are married but still distant from each other (because of the lies? or because A&E don’t want to make the effort to include Belle? And there is way too much Frozen). Belle finds out about the lies and kicks him out of town and so she and Rumple are separated YET AGAIN for half of a season. Belle and Rumple still love each other but at the very end of season 4, he passes out because of his “dark” heart. The sorcerer gives him a white heart but he’s now in a coma. 

So, season 5. Dare I say it? In all seriousness, Rumple & Belle’s relationship is very important, but why do they have to be separated? Is it because A&E don’t know what to do with Belle? Why why why whyyyyy. 

A&E, this shit is getting so old -.-

The 15 Fashion Trends That Defined How We’ll Remember 2015

From the ‘70s-meets-'90s redux to a return to minimalism, the biggest trends of 2015 were enough of a departure from the over-the-top, embellished, glossy, girly looks of the prior years that — to us — they signaled a style shift that’ll separate the end of this decade from the first few years.
