she acts so creepy so well

Billy reacts to Skam 4x10

Part ½

I’m emo about this, I binged the season with Billy, unlike season 3, I haven’t watched season 4 a lot, and it was fun to see Billy’s reaction and a different perspective. I feel like, I’m getting there, ready to let go of Skam, but I’ll always be in love with Skam. I have watched many, many shows before, but, Skam introduced me to the fandom culture and I loved it. I will be sticking by for some time, but I can see the 24hr urge to check whats happening in the fandom is dying down a little bit. I have met some incredible people with interesting perspectives and some who are just so in love with Henrik and Tarjei which could be defined as border line creepy, but I think it’s cute.I love some of the fan fics and fan arts so much and I’m grateful to for that experience as well. So here we go, back to Billy!

Billy starts the season off with the impression that it’s going to be a Vilde centric episode.

“I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, Sana and Vilde’s friendship, from the first time they met to now - is incredible.”

“Aww, she’s taking care of her mom. Now, it makes sense, why she never hosted a party.”

Ulrikke’s acting in this is so good, I remember not being able to shake an uncomfortable like feeling for hours after this clip.

Next: “Who dat?”

“You shouldn’t introduce yourself when you’re naked, WHAT?” in Norway, you do, apparently.

Next: JONAS

“And why would Jonas date her, after she completely outed Isak to everyone?”


“Why do I feel like this was only a thing because they were like.. we need to get Jonas a girlfriend, OK, but who? Let’s bring back the most hated girl on the show, GENIUS!”

It’s a delight to see how obvious Billy’s favoritism for Isak is. I love it.

I’m so glad Billy’s doing this in parts.

Stubborn love; Rocket x reader

This request comes from here on tumblr by one of my newest tumblr friends coolbonnieblr who wanted a Rocket raccoon oneshot.  Now this one is a bit different from all my other fics cause this time I wrote it all in the POV of Rocket instead of the reader so I hope that’s cool with all of you. I do NOT own Rocket nor any of the GOTG they belong to Stan Lee/Marvel/Disney. Hope you all enjoy :)

Warnings: Swearing, bar violence, and making out.

*Rocket’s POV*

God the way she just presents herself it’s like—like nothing I’ve ever experienced in all my life.  She’s even more beautiful than an explosion going off or even one of my favorite guns, she’s in a class all on her own.  That’s why I doubt she’d ever really go for someone like me, I mean, who would date someone who Quill calls a raccoon whatever the hell that is.

“I am Groot”.

“No I am not thinking about her!” I proclaimed.

“Not thinking about who?” I heard her voice say. I turned to see (y/n) standing there with her phaser in hand.

“No one nobody Groot’s being an idiot like usual. So are we close to Knowhere yet?” I asked her.

“In a few minutes, hey Rocket can you take a look at my phaser it’s acting up again”.

“Bring it over here”.  She walked up to me and I took her phaser and began to work my magic (well mainly fixing the bug I made. I don’t mess with her weapons to be creepy okay!) As I began fixing it, I took notice of her eyes so focused on her phaser.

Whenever she focuses on something mainly her weapons, I always notice her eyebrows kinda furrow downward and every now and again her tongue kinda pokes out at the corner of her mouth showing that she has only one thing on her mind and that’s her armory.

Gah Rocket focus here! Okay yeah, yeah that’s it good Rocket.  Once the problem was solved I handed it back to her and said.

“There you go, there was a bug in it that made it short circuit. It should be okay now”.

“Thanks Rocket I owe you one!” She then kissed the side of my cheek and thank kriff for my fur because I was definitely blushing at this point or was it just hot in here for some flarg reason.

“Yo Rocket! We’re approaching Knowhere get up here!” I heard Quill’s voice proclaim.

“On my way up!” I touched my face where (y/n) kissed me and I felt all tingly inside that’s when I heard Groot clear his throat and look at me with that stupid face of his again, “Shut up! And don’t you dare breathe a word about this to anyone!” I walked up the stairs back up to the deck and sat in my pilot’s seat.

Moments and Memories- Chapter Six

I actually wanted to wait a while before I did this, but considering the timeline and the fact that I still don’t actually have a plan for this… Eh, why not. Also… I’m so sorry, guys.

Warning: Angst

A/N: I’m so sorry…

I smile as Chris kisses me again, leaning into his touch as he tenderly explores my mouth. I love when he holds me like this- our bodies pressed against each other, his arm around my shoulders and down my back to cradle me, and our legs tangled together comfortably. I curl my leg around his, smiling more when he does, and he peppers my neck with kisses, making me giggle and squirm.

“Where are you going, princess?” He growls, keeping me pinned as I giggle, beard tickling me even more.

onliafaze  asked:

Takao, Kasamatsu, Sakurai, Himuro, and Nijimura find their crushes' notebook... and discover a well drawn sketch of them, surrounded by little hearts. What do they do next?

Omg! I love this, since I rarely get request from these characters! Wahh, I enjoyed writing this! 🌸

This is pretty long, too!

Thank you for requesting! 💋


♥︎ TAKAO

“You’re actually that serious on becoming a composer?” Takao asked as she carefully flipped the pages of her notebook. She nodded, then glanced at the street basketball game across from them. 

“Of course I am.” she replied, still not meeting his eyes. She hated it when they locked eyes anyway. Her calm composure would drop, and she would start stuttering on her words and other embarrassing things like that. 

A basketball jumped over the fence and landed in front of them. One of their classmates, Ayato, shouted from behind the fence: “Hey, (Name)-chan, mind if you throw the ball over?” 

Takao scoffed. “Hey look, it’s that guy you’ve been crushing on.” he said dully, grabbing the ball from the ground and giving it to (Name). 

Another thing she hated, faking a crush on another person so she could distract her feelings. Yeah, it sounded immature, but it wasn’t her fault she fell for her bestfriend. 

(Name) cleared her throat, before walking over to the fence and throwing it over. Ayato smiled once he caught it. “Nice throw, (Name)-chan!” he winked, before walking back to his friends. 

“Sheesh, you should really confess, (Name)-chan.” Takao said, playing with her hair. She blushed deeply, shaking her head, partly so that Takao could stop what he was doing, and so that her hair could cover her blush. 

“Is there something wrong?” he asked. “You seem.. odd.” 

She shook her head again. “Nothing. Kazu, I have to go. I have something else to do. See you tomorrow.” she smiled half-heartedly, before shouldering her bag and sprinted off. 

Takao was a bit offended. Your best friend ditching your time alone for some other thing, but it was probably important, right? For the past few weeks, (Name)’s been asking so nervous. Takao suspected the obvious, but he didn’t want to assume it to early. After all, she liked someone else. 

Takao turned to the side and grew interested when he saw her notebook on the bench beside him, where she sat not too long ago. 

She forgot it, obviously. Takao would give it to her tomorrow, but it was so tempting to open. 

In the end, he got it and opened it anyways. He was just no fighter for temptations. He smiled at the lyrics she wrote, how much meaning they had, you could feel the emotion she wore when she wrote them. 

It’s the same for the first few pages, until he reached by the middle of the notebook. He squinted his eyes to see if it were really him. 

The sketch looked so accurate, it was creepy. But other than that, it was drawn well. Takao didn’t know she could draw, much less skilfully. 

The drawing didn’t look like Ayato at all. And that was weird, since she had a crush on the guy, and the drawing had little hearts scribbled next to it. 

His eyes dropped to some writings below the feet. 

‘You’re annoying, Kazu’ it wrote. That was enough for him to realise what the hell was going on, he couldn’t help but smirk. 

No wonder she acted so odd. And the drawing wasn’t drawn too long ago, either, considering she put a date in the lower right corner. He closed it and smiled to himself. 

“Neh, (Name)-chan, I’m so going to get you tomorrow.” he smirked.

anonymous asked:

Hey, anon from the little sibling ask, I loved your headcannons ! Now, how about the champions reacting to their s/o older and very protective sibling ?

thank u!! this topic is super fun to write abt !!

Link

- Very Serious™ he has to leave a good impression (esp if they’re an older brother) being the hero doesn’t matter to s/o’s sibling– in fact, it kind of makes it worse because “he’s always surrounded by danger!” “he’s got so many dangerous weapons!” 

- he cannot relax, but he’s also trying not to be so emotionless so his smiles appear creepy

- he’s so tired afterwards and he whines to s/o about how he feels he did a horrible job. after sighing it out a few times, he’s back to his normal dorky self and s/o begs him to act like he is now next time bc they want their siblings to see who he rly is!

- sibling loves him, but always testing and teasing him for fun

Mipha

- is an actual older sibling so she totally understands the concern

- this time, she’s the most unfazed. in fact, her and the sibling hit it off very well!

- although the chemistry is obviously there, the sibling still can’t help but wonder if this small little zora girl can actually protect their baby sibling. that will all change when she hits her growth spurt, i’m sure

- s/o’s sibling believes they’re trustworthy and wouldn’t dare do anything to hurt their baby sib or put them in danger

Urbosa

- instantly, the sibling is not worried that urbosa would ever put their baby sib in danger, but they are intimidated by, well, everything. her height, her knowledge, her sophistication, her strength, her body, everything.

- it’s almost as if the roles reversed in some ways. urbosa keeps insisting the older sibling ask more questions; she wants to gain the trust of the older sibling!! “don’t you have any other questions? is there not anymore you would like to ask of me? ask me more questions, get to know me.” 

- she leaves unconfident, interpreting the lack of questioning a bad sign and spends the remaining time with her s/o asking for suggestions on how to win their sibling’s love

- older sib trusts her and more or less likes her, but they asked baby sib if it would be ok to not invite her to every family gathering

Revali

- despite what everyone (and maybe even u) thinks, revali does remarkably well

- older sib loves how eloquent he is and how respectful he is to them

- isn’t as cocky so it comes off as a decent confidence and they love that. he’s also a smooth talker, so older sib is being charmed subconsciously

- he gives s/o a smug look afterwards but he has no intentions of manipulation. he’s just trying his best in securing his place in s/o’s life and family

Daruk

- he’s so present, which startles the older sib, but his character and personality easily prove he’s a gentle giant

- older sib was skeptical about how rough he could be with their baby sib, but during the conversations, they take notice of how gentle and careful he is with his s/o

- because the goron culture greatly treasure family, he has a lot of the same beliefs and ideals the older sib has which is reassuring. 

- whether it went sweet or sour, he walks away with a positive outlook. ultimately, his focus was more on making his s/o happy, not necessarily their family

What's Good Miley?

Oh man, someone reminded me of some bullshit I had repressed because I was too busy being pissed about the healthcare law.

These stories about Mikey Cyrus going clean and sober; I’m going to leave the commentary about the racial aspects of it to other people whose lane it actually is. But, OMG, the way the coverage has treated her and her “recovery” and the way she talks about it makes me want to punch everyone.

A (incomplete probably) list of my issue:

(1) They’re talking about her stopping smoking weed as though she was shooting up heroin literally on the Judge’s Chair on The Voice. Like, obviously I don’t know the full extent of her drinking problem or how much weed she was smoking, but she was clearly incredibly high functioning. Can we not talk about this like Lindsay Lohan or Lamar Odom sobering up and going clean (two names I have picked randomly out of my memories of “celebrities who have had dramatic issues with drugs, alcohol, and mental health in recent years”)?

(2) Despite the fact that the news stories are covering it as though she was snorting coke off Blake Sheldon’s ass on national television, the way Miley talks about it seems so freaking dismissive of the experiences of people actually struggling with addiction. Her quotes were like “it’s been so fucking easy actually; I love feeling clear headed for the first time in forever” and “I just feel so much more in touch with myself spiritually,” and so on and so forth. Like, I’m absolutely fine with her saying “hey so I decided to stop smoking weed because it wasn’t making me feel good anymore” but don’t try to get attention both on the one hand for going clean and sober but then on the other hand talk about it like it is this cake-walk that is just so easy for you because you’re in such a better place now (does the better place involve a Hemsworth dick? Because, let’s be honest, the better place involves a Hemsworth dick.)

(3) When she gave the big interview that came out about this, she told them she had been clean and sober for THREE fucking WEEKS. Again, bully for you, but it all just feels so performative. Frankly, just as her trip to the high-side also always felt pretty performative, this recapturing of her sweet and innocent (and white, LBR) feels incredibly performative too.

(4) The three weeks thing also bugs me because it goes against all common sense for good public relations strategy if you are *actually* an addict in recovery. Generally, celebrities in recovery are more like pregnant women, you wait as long as possible to make any announcements about it (if you make any at all) because the risk of relapse is real and once TMZ gets wind that a celebrity is an addict or in recovery, their goal in life will be catching you when you relapse. Because they are assholes. Paparazzi will not only stalk the shit out of you and harass you, they may very well try to stress you enough or trick you into relapse so they can get the “money” shot. And the public will eat it up.

Honestly, the whole thing feels like she gave an interview and got the cover of a magazine (one I’ve never heard of, but still) and got breathless articles on Buzzfeed and shit like that for announcing that she gave up caffeine for Lent or something.

All of this should be read with the understanding that I absolutely acknowledge that alcoholism is a serious disease and that, while I think “addiction” to pot is less of a thing, I absolutely think there are people who abuse it. I don’t know if Miley is one of those people, but every one of my bullshit detectors is going off with this. Because I just cannot imagine a publicist recommending to someone with a serious addiction problem that they handle it this way. And nothing in Miley’s career suggests that she would just go off and do this on her own; her career has always been well managed and strategic (even when it seemed a bit more like “strategery” rather than actual strategy, like when she humped a creepy, older, married man on national television.)

Anyway, so there’s a slim chance that this is just Miley being Miley but I find it much more likely that she has decided she wants to shed the weird mixture of flower-power wild-child white girl who thinks she’s down with black people because she twerked once and is doing so by performing the “I’m going clean and sober” act so people will be just.so.relieved that little sweet Miley has been saved from the big bad world and now they can listen to her cover of Jolene without having to feel like they are associating themselves with “those sorts of behaviors.”

And I don’t quite know where my strong feelings on this come from, but as a chronic pain patient who is constantly treated like an addict because of the medication I need and a human being worried about the opioid crisis, this kind of blasé and almost condescending approach to “recovery” kind of offends me. … Or apparently really offends me, considering how long this post has gotten.

I WANT TO WRITE A DAMN S7 SPUFFY POST

HOLD ON TIGHT, BITCHES, BECAUSE WE GON’ TALK ABOUT SPUFFY IN S7 AND ALSO SOULFUL SPIKE AND ALSO BUFFY. WHY? BECAUSE I MOTHER FUCKING FEEL LIKE IT. IT’S GON’ BE LONG AS SHIT. YOU HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA MOTHER FUCKER. LITERALLY, THIS WILL TAKE YOU AT LEAST AN HOUR TO READ. STRAP IN, WHORES.

I’m gonna calm down now.

So, Spike is back in Sunnydale. He’s the First’s bitch, but we don’t know that yet. I dunno why it is exactly that Buffy was so surprised to see him in the basement (other than he looked weird and hadn’t been around recently), but to me it looked like she wasn’t scared of him? You know, like she should be after he tried to rape her? Is that because she knew he felt horribly about what he did or because she could tell something was different about him (the crazy, I mean)? And also, we know now that Spike was out of his mind, seeing things because of the First. But watching it back, you can see the exact moment he realizes that the girl in front of him was really Buffy. The little “Buffy, duck” thing was, well, adorable. 

Okay, so I believe that everything Spike said when he was “crazy” had a meaning to it. You just gotta look deep enough. So, when he says “Don’t you think I’m trying! I’m not fast. I’m not a quick study. I dropped my board in the water and the chalk all ran. Sure to be caned. Should’ve seen that comin’,” I think he’s trying to tell Buffy (and probably the First) that he’s trying to atone for what he did, but he’s not succeeding because he hasn’t had his soul in a long while. The progress he made before the soul was washed away as soon as he tried to rape Buffy. And he suspects that he’s being punished for it now. Spike dialogue in the first episodes of S7 are so profound. You don’t realize it on the first run through, but if you go back and really listen, it’s astounding. 

Buffy obviously isn’t too untrustworthy of Spike in this scene. I don’t know if, like I said before, it’s because of the crazy or because she knows she can handle herself or what it is, but she seemed to be ready to fight the ghost-like things with Spike by her side. The tender moment where Buffy asks Spike what he did to himself, with him answering “I tried to cut it out,” is one of my favorite moments of the season. It’s a very nice moment between the two of them where you can almost see Buffy feel sorry for Spike, even before she knows what he went through. 

This end sequence with the various “baddies” talking to Spike is pretty significant, to say the least. Of course, it gives us insight into the thing that’s going to be the final boss for the season, but it also shows us Spike in a way we’ve never seen him before. For someone who loves Spike more than anything, this is a big deal to me. He’s busted up and broken down, so somber that he didn’t get to give Buffy his “I have a soul” speech. It’s a very powerful scene, to me. 

Aye, Spike is back in black. So to speak, I mean, he’s wearing blue. Which is out of character for him. So, maybe he’s not back in black exactly. Whatever. 

I really love the backseat attitude he takes with Buffy in this scene. I’ve said that in a post before, but it’s such a running theme with him throughout the season that it’s important to note. First of all, he genuinely is there just to help out. No ulterior motives. That’s already a totally new Spike. Second, he knows that saying sorry won’t do jack shit. He knows that and he tells her that. He also tells her that if she wants him out, he’ll go and stay gone. That. Is. A. Huge. Deal. Spike is letting Buffy drive this situation all the way. And, again, he’s not doing it so she’ll come back to him, he’s doing it because he’s a good man. He maybe shouldn’t of called her wariness of him being “skittish,” but nonetheless.

I really love that Anya was the one to realize he had his soul back. I also really love that Spike doesn’t want Buffy to know. He sort of implied that in the scene prior, too, when they were checking out the hole in the ground. He knows that he probably won’t get her back, but he doesn’t want to influence her in any way by telling her he has his soul back. He doesn’t want that to be an excuse, he just wants Buffy to realize that he’s changed somehow. 

The part before the church, where Spike accidentally stabs that guy, is a very interesting way to deliver, basically, the plot for S7. First, Spike says, again, how painful it is to have the soul inside of him (because he’s unaware that it’s First messing with him at this point). Then he says something that has sort of a double meaning for both the First and for him. The “call it quits, now there’s an option. If only it were that easy” bit. For Spike, it means that he feels like he’d be much better off if he could get rid of the soul, but he doesn’t see that as an option because he doesn’t really want to get rid of it. For the First, it means that Buffy can’t quit. She’s revving up for the fight of her life, and there’s no going or coming back from it. 

After Spike yells at the First, I really love how Sarah gives Buffy the expression of, almost, pity for Spike. It’s a nice way to show that she knows this Spike is different from the one she knew in S6. She just doesn’t know how, yet. 

Sidebar: I’m gonna brag on James’s acting with basically every scene I talk about, so get ready.

The little speech before the “from beneath you, it devours” line is so well done. James knocked it out of the park. It’s the right amount of creepy and ominous. And James also makes it very clear that Spike has been snapped into a sort of trance that makes him say the things he said. I’m not done braggin’ on James in this episode. Hold up. We gon’ do the church scene. Which is, besides the lovey dovey stuff at the end of the season, my favorite scene in the whole show.

I told y’all the blue shirt was weird! A “costume” he says. Whoa, that’s sad as hell. Buffy with the touching of the wounds again. C’mon, Buff. Don’t you know he’s sensitive? No, but really, Spike asking her if he was “flesh” to her is so profound. Spike begins by asking if Buffy even thinks of him as a person at all, then if he was ever anything other than a “sex toy” to her, then he sort of resigns and “accepts” that that’s all he’ll ever be to her. “Service the girl.” One line I want to dwell on here is “Feed on flesh. My flesh. Nothing else. Not a spark.” To me, this is Spike telling her that he doesn’t blame her for not loving him. Because there wasn’t a “spark” (soul) to love. There was only flesh, ergo, only sex. It’s very, very sad to me.

“The girl doesn’t want to be serviced. Because there’s no spark.” I mean, it’s pretty obvious what Spike means here, but God isn’t is heartbreaking? Knowing that when he says “spark,” he means “soul” makes this scene so much richer. Hearing him say he tried to find his soul because she didn’t want him just hurts. And he feels ashamed of it, of everything. He can’t even talk about it unless he’s in the shadows. Spike dreaming about killing Buffy… here’s the thing: I feel like he dreamed of that because of, what he said, her making him “weak.” He wanted her to not be there so he wouldn’t have to love her and let that love make him better because being better is too painful. But I also think he dreamed of killing her because, to him, that would’ve been better than what he did do (attempted rape). I don’t know. Either way, it’s a hell of a bit.

“Angel, he should’ve warned me.” Click. Buffy sees. She understands. She knows why he’s so different now. You can see her trying to work it out, even rationalize it away. No, he wouldn’t’ve gotten his soul back just to be with me, would he? “Bit worse for lack of use.” Initially, before we know about the First, that’s really fucking sad.

So, when Spike says “It’s what you wanted, right? It’s what you wanted, right?” I assumed he was talking to the First the second time around. But I think, now, that he was talking to God. Saying to him you wanted me to have my soul back, right, so you could punish me for everything I’ve done? That ends up tying in with what he says about everyone he ever hurt screaming in his head at him to go to Hell. And I think Buffy gets that, too. I think she feels sorrow (?) for Spike because she realizes that’s a hell of a lot to feel guilty about.

Spike’s confession, or rather, literally everything he says from here on in, is one of the most heartbreaking, sorrowful things I’ve ever seen on television. Buffy asks him “Why?” Spike tells her. He says “Why does a man do what he mustn’t? For her. To be hers. To be a kind of man who would nev– To be a kind of man.” Let’s talk about that for a moment. The break in his voice at the end of that sentence, fucking ow. This is the first time we get a verbal confirmation of Spike’s regret about the attempted rape. Not only did he get his soul back for Buffy, he got it back for him. He didn’t want to be the kind of man that would do that to someone, let alone someone he loved. In fact, he says instead that he wasn’t even a man before. He didn’t deserve to be called a man, so he got his soul back so he could be one, any kind at all just so long as he wasn’t the void of a man he thought himself to be before. I keep saying it, but holy shit is that sad and profound. 

Okay, I know this bit by heart, ready? “And she shall look on him with forgiveness. And everybody will forgive and love. And he will be loved. So everything’s okay, right? Can we rest now? Buffy, can we rest?” This is what he was hoping would happen. Not what he thought would happen, but what he hoped for. Spike wanted to come back to her and be forgiven and loved. Which, of course, that happened, but Spike is too fucked to realize that that’s a possibility right now. He then says, kind of sarcastically, “So everything’s okay, right?” It’s not really meant to be sarcastic, I know, but the way it’s put into the scene it’s almost like Spike is saying it should be better now. Why isn’t it better? That’s why he says “Can we rest now?” He just wants it to be done. He just wants Buffy to love him. But at the same time he thinks he doesn’t deserve it and thinks he’ll never get it. So, he’s numbed himself to the idea that the pain will never stop. He’ll forever be in a state of regret and grief and aching pain. I think that’s why he rests on the cross, because nothing could hurt more than what he was already feeling. It may also be a metaphor for Spike still feeling like he’s a monster that doesn’t deserve forgiveness. Because, cross’s burn vampires, right? So, of course, Spike is still a vampire. Spike burning himself on the cross could be a way of reminding himself that no, of course she can’t love you. You’re still a monster. 

James killed this scene. The acting quality here, for the both of them, is just amazing. It gets me every time, I get pulled into the world and all I can see/feel is Spike’s torment. Lovely, yet haunting. 

Speaking of James killing scenes. So, this episode isn’t Spike-centric like the previous episode was, but this scene doesn’t disappoint. 

So, of course, in this scene (which had to of taken extreme discipline and talent to film) Spike is talking to Willow and Xander and Buffy. It’s interesting to me that Spike can see Willow when no one else can, same with Anya. I suppose the thing that made Willow invisible doesn’t apply to demons? Anyway.

Okay, so the thing he says about the permission slip? I’ve got no idea what the hell he’s talking about. I did say earlier that a crazed Spike’s ramblings meant something if you listened hard enough, but I think that’s an outlier that doesn’t mean much other than confirming that the Hellmouth is drawing darkness to it. I think from then on in this scene, it’s pretty obvious what Spike is talking about in regards to himself or to Willow and the body, so I won’t explain, just talk about it.

Bragging on James again, the moment when Willow says she can’t find anyone, Spike gets this look on his face like that’s strange because I’m looking at them right now. 

Couple questions: How did Spike hear about Willow skinning Warren? And also, why is Willow not more concerned that Spike is literally out of his fucking mind?

I love the little nod to “Fool for Love” in this scene when Spike asks for a word that means “glowing.” I also really love that Spike doesn’t chalk up this scenario as him being crazy, he knows that Willow isn’t there exactly. I’m telling you man, Spike is right a majority of the time. Even when he’s crazy, apparently.

Holy shit, this scene is so sad. 

I mean, obviously, right? I think Buffy was already feeling pain for Spike. Not feeling sorry for him, but understanding and knowing that the pain he’s feeling is real and that he really does feel badly about the things he’d done in the past. You can tell that, too, because she’s appealing to his “hero” side to try and get him to be lucid so he can help. She tells him that Cassie needs his help, hoping that’ll get through to him. And Spike trying to “stay quiet” is so sad.  

When Spike pegs himself as the evil in the basement, you can see Buffy feeling that pain I talked about earlier. And when she explains that it isn’t her that is going to be hurt, that’s when I took the screen cap above. That face breaks my heart. He’s so confused and lost and pained. Like he knows exactly where he is but doesn’t at the same time, and he can’t figure out why. He’s using Buffy–looking at Buffy, into her eyes–to keep him grounded.

“Don’t-don’t leave me. Stay here and help me be quiet.” This is another one of those moments. You know, the sad ones. 

Okay, really quick here. Spike’s using this moment to make up for what he did to Buffy (for himself, not for Buffy), at least a small bit. He tells one of the dudes trying to kill her that he’s a bad man. I don’t think this is a totally straight forward line, as I thought it was before. I think Spike said it to mean I’m a bad man, but I’ll be bad for the right reasons. Him whimpering as he hit that guy is sort of hard for me to watch just because it isn’t the roaring, Jesus Christ that hurt, scream that usually comes out of him when he hurts someone; it was small and weak, and that’s not the way we’re used to seeing Spike.

Right, so the “someday she’ll tell you” bit. We know how that ends up now (extremely sad), but at the time we’re just as confused as ol’ Spike. I wonder, when Buffy did tell him, if he remembered that moment. 

Jesus, I didn’t realize how long crazy Spike lasted. You have no idea how many I wanted this conversation (as shown above) to be real between Buffy and Spike. I know a lot of people use the “we’ll get through this” line in Spuffy posts as if it were real, but God. I can’t imagine Buffy ever being that gushy towards Spike, but I can dream.

Added on to that, the First is one evil son of a bitch to do this to Spike (giving him the closure and peace he feels like he’ll never have with Buffy). Of course, the main thing to remember with this scene is that it is a real conversation to Spike, at least in the moment he’s having it. So, Spike talking about Dru and telling Buffy he could never ask for help after what he did to her, that’s a really beautiful moment from him. It’s also very sad because he’s telling her that they’ll never get past it all and she’s telling him she sees that he’s changed, and we know that they do get past it and Buffy does see the change.

The actual talk they have won’t make you feel any better, either. Spike says he doesn’t have anywhere to go other than the basement, and boom, now you’re crying again.

So, I was originally going to skip this episode, but this scene and the one immediately after are too important to pass up. Buffy helping Spike is a big step anyway, but when he touches her? And she jumps? But she says it’s her not him? Listen, I’m glad that six episodes in, they’re still addressing the attempted rape and how that’s affecting Buffy. But the fact that after he tells her he’s sorry for touching her arm, she says it’s her issue and not his? That’s a big deal. Especially because it’s totally understandable that she’d be jumpy. It conveys that she knows he’s not the same man as he was when he tried to hurt her. Basically, this scene shows us that Buffy doesn’t think she needs to be cautious around Spike at all anymore, that the jumpiness (in this scene) was just a bodily reaction. The amount of strength in that, man, whoa.

The scene after this one is the one where Dawn is asking Buffy why she’s helping Spike, even after he tried to rape her. I love this scene because Buffy tells Dawn that Spike knew as soon as she threw him off that what he’d done was horrible. I appreciate that little tidbit because it directly contradicts a lot of what she said in Season 6 about the fact that she could never love him because he was monster. 

Mkay, I’m not saying much about this one, even though it’s an important one for Buffy what with the admitting how she feels/could feel about Spike and how she treated him before and pretty much everything bad about their relationship.

I really do appreciate that Buffy is more self aware at this point in the series (even though she gets cocky and bossy later on). It makes me like Buffy as a character a lot more. In seasons prior, I found it really hard to like her as much as I should like a main character. In Season 4, she was too reserved when it came to college and Riley; in Season 5, I didn’t like the whole “mom” thing going on with Dawn; in Season 6, she was a total bitch to Spike for the majority of the time. Season 7, though, I can appreciate all of that and where it brought her. 

I also really like that she admits out loud to herself that the way she treated Spike was awful, but also that she shouldn’t of let it happen in the first place. Now, I’m mostly happy that it happened, but for Buffy’s well being and state of mind, it really shouldn’t have (although I’m sure with Spike to talk to, some of her pain was lessened at least).  

So, she knew Spike really did love her. She knows now that she acted the way she did because she didn’t want to be loved. That is good character development right there. K, we’re done here. Moving on.

Dude, how damn strong is the First that it can make Spike kill but the pain from the chip doesn’t snap him out of it? Christ. All I’m gonna say about the scene above is: holy shit, can you fucking see how much she cares about Spike? She’s fighting with herself so much on what to believe. On the barest level, yeah, Spike is William the Bloody. He could kill people again if he wanted to. But realistically? Nope. Not Spike. He wouldn’t. Couldn’t. And not just because of the chip. I love that about this scene.

Quick sidebar about it: when Buffy asks how his night was (obviously to see if he’d be all lol, I ate a girl), Spike looked so freaking happy that she was talking to him about something so normal.

Aw, man this scene is gold. This is another one of those ones that I’ve basically got memorized. Buffy is trying so hard to be the old, hard-ass Buffy. But, like, she so can’t because she knows that Spike didn’t do it. 

It’s very sad that Spike doesn’t remember any of it, but that’s a whole other thing. The way he defends himself by saying he couldn’t of killed anyone because of his soul is so damn cool. Of course, in the next episode, Buffy tells him that it isn’t just his soul but the fact that he’s a good man that keeps him from hurting anyone. 

Spike calling Buffy out about being jealous…oooo. I didn’t think that she was jealous at first, but after watching it back 2,000 times, I started to see it. I don’t think she was jealous before he brought it up, but when he did, she had the fleeting wh-no! I’m not jealous, please! thought. Which is totally a lie. 

If Spike is always right, and you know it, clap your hands *clap* *clap*. But honestly. I like his roundabout way of telling her he still loves her. I’ve said this in posts before, but I don’t think Spike wanted to tell her he still loved her. I think he wanted to try to stop using that as a way of convincing Buffy. He just wanted her to know he’d changed. No matter what that meant for the two of them because his goal this season was definitely not to get her back.

Spike being so defensive about the killing is pretty sad. He’s so scared that he did do it. And then it escalated to horror when he realizes he did. And then he calls Buffy for help, aw.

Spike’s trigger song is kind of pretty, yeah? Maybe it’s just because James was singing it. It’s worth noting here that Buffy wasn’t trying to hurt Spike, she was trying to snap him out of it. Even before she fully understood that something was messing with him. 

I always appreciate Spike’s vamp face, don’t you? Wasn’t the moment he licked the blood from Buffy’s arm almost…sensual? I guess for a vampire, blood is sensual, but it’s just a very interesting few seconds to me. Especially because the taste of Buffy’s blood specifically seemed to jog his memory of the killings.

In case you haven’t been able to tell by my choppy writing, I’m watching these scenes as I’m typing so it’s probably a little confusing as to what part I’m on. Sorry about that. 

So, we’re in the cellar, after the fighting and the “sorry, ma’am, but it’s my job.” Listen to me. Someone as large and in charge as Spike/James should not be allowed to look that small. The same deal happens in the scene after when he’s wrapped up in the blanket in Buffy’s house. It’s so fucking heartbreaking to see. That’s the sign of a good actor, right there. Damn.

The pain in Spike’s expression, his eyes, his face. Holy hell. He thinks Buffy is definitely going to kill him and he wants it. He’s not just okay with it, he’s not just understanding in why she has to do it, he wants it. His voice breaks, too, when he asks her to kill him quickly, when he talks about the song, and when he asks to forget. Just the sound of his voice is enough to make me cry.

I love that Buffy sort of tells Spike that he isn’t in pain because of the soul but because of whatever it is that’s messing with him (the First). And he asks her for help again. For the second time this episode. And she says she will again. Bitch. That’s…wow.

And here we see Buffy fighting so hard to help Spike. For her mission but also because she doesn’t want him to feel the pain he’s been feeling for so long. That’s very sweet. Also, I don’t know why, but Buffy feeding him is also very sweet to me. Maybe it’s because you can see it in her eyes, that she’s scared for him and that she wants to help him.

So, when Spike says (in answer to Buffy asking him how he got his soul back) that he “saw a man about a girl,” I feel like this is a really important moment for Buffy. Why, you ask, it’s only one line? Well, because, usually when Spike says he’s done something for her or because of her or any time he shows affection for her at all, Buffy takes the whole revulsion approach. But she didn’t this time. Instead what she showed on her face was, dare I say, guilt. Guilt that the reason for Spike’s guilt is because of her, because she’s why he got his soul. She does the same thing when he explains that he went through torture to get his soul back.

And. Here. We. Finally. Have. Spike. Confronting. Buffy. About. How. Shit. She. Treated. Him. We’ve seen how badly Spike feels about the attempted rape, Buffy confronted him about it. And now, here, we flip it around. Spike gets a chance to tell her that he understands why she did it, although it still hurt him. 

Here’s the thing: Spike is generally right about most stuff. And I think he pegged Buffy pretty well in this scene…but not the current Buffy. He pegged the Buffy from Season 6. Of course, in the basement later, she corrects him on that, but yeah. Spike says he hates himself, Buffy has that guilty look again.

Okay. Okay. Okayokayokay. I love this scene.

First of all, Buffy cleaning up Spike, love that. I mean, it isn’t his blood, but still. Unless it was from her kicking him in the face. Anyway.

Can you imagine how pleased Spike probably ended up being with himself that he bit Andrew? Like, after he figured out how annoying Andrew was (I love Andrew, but you know what I mean)? Every time Andrew brought up their road trip or tried to play 20 questions with him, I bet Spike thought at least I got to bite you. 

Good guys being martyrs and trying to put themselves in the ground are my weakness. Spike telling Buffy to kill him is ugh! 

It’s a really interesting piece, though, coupled with Spike telling Buffy how horrible he’d been in the past. Initially, I thought that Spike trying to rape Buffy was a freak thing, so to speak, that he wouldn’t of done it with Dru or any time before that. Now, though, I’m not so sure. In this scene, when he tells Buffy she got off easy, I assume that’s what he’s talking about right? Because when he says the thing about him damaging a girl just enough so that she’ll still cry when he- And he cuts himself off? He was going to say when you rape them, right? From a story standpoint, that’s very interesting to me. I don’t know if it’s because I find rape so vile or what it is, but I just didn’t think William the Bloody or even Angelus would do that to someone. The way James and David played those characters, I guess I just assumed that rape wouldn’t be something they’d do.

And the whole time Spike is trying to anger Buffy enough so that she’ll kill him, she’s telling him that he is not that bad man anymore. That he’s worth saving (like that Fred reference I just threw in there?). 

When Spike says “it’s not love” in reference to why Buffy hasn’t killed him, I have a theory. Buffy told him it was because he fought by her side because, for one that’s true, but also because she figured that’s the only way he’d listen to her. But I think that when he said “it’s not love,” Buffy though to herself not yet. Just my opinion, but if she did? Dayum.

Then Spike pegs Season 6 Buffy again, and she corrects him, like I said earlier. It’s nice to know that Buffy’s grown so much so that she doesn’t need to hate to do her job. 

These lines right here, I love them. “You faced the monster inside of you, and you fought back. You risked everything to be a better man. And you can be. You are. You may not see it, but I do. I do. I believe in you, Spike.” It’s not an I love you, but isn’t it almost better? Buffy had never said anything like this to him in the past. It is such a huge deal that she’s not only saying it to give confidence to Spike, but because she really believes it. And Spike. Oh, Spike. As soon as she said she believes in him, he got this look of almost confusion on his face that turned to…well, the only way I can describe it is that he was glowing. Hearing that from Buffy of all people made him believe in himself. Beautiful, beautiful moment.  

These next two episodes are gonna go by pretty fast because there’s not a whole lot of Spuffy (which is why we’re here). I don’t know where, but I’m pretty sure at some point Buffy expresses the need to find Spike. Which is important because, for example, in Season 5 when Glory kidnapped him, Buffy expressed the need to find him…but only because she didn’t want him to tell Glory that Dawn was the key. This season, she wants to find Spike because she wants Spike back. Needs him back. She doesn’t want him to die. How amazing is that?

So, the main thing with this episode, obviously, is that Spike isn’t giving into the First because Buffy believes in him. Do you realize how powerful that is? He’s fighting to be good, one of the hardest things he’s ever had to do, and the thing that’s making it easy for him is Buffy. That’s incredible.

As if it wasn’t enough that Spike is being tortured, now he’s fighting to believe that Buffy cares enough to come for him. OH MY GOD, how sad. Of course, the First is making him doubt it more than he normally would, but Spike is faced with something here that he hasn’t addressed yet this season: how does Buffy feel about me? Surely he’s thinking to himself that after all he’s done, she’d be crazy to risk her life to save him. But he’s also hoping that since she believes in him, since she saw his change, she’ll come anyway.

And then she does. And Spike is so happy it makes my heart hurt. Jesus, his face when he realizes it’s really Buffy is something I’ll never forget. I don’t know if I’d say he got to a point that he didn’t believe she’d come for him, but when he saw her…he lit up. Relief and love and joy all bubbled up inside of him. His face was absolutely beautiful in that moment. And Buffy. Seeing how happy he was to see her, the love and elation behind his eyes. It’s a hell of a thing, with two people, when you can be happy just because the other person is happy. 

Their hands. This is such a sweet moment. All of it. Buffy being concerned, Spike being a gentleman, Buffy running her hands down his chest, their hands touching and the eye thing they do. I wanna cry tears of love. I wish I knew how to say more about it, but it’s just so serene and beautiful that all I can do is let it speak for itself.

I just want to say one thing about this moment here and the scene prior (in the demon bar). It’s very, very nice that they’re in a place that they can look back on the memories of them fighting together and being together in a positive way. The vitriol and toxicity forgotten. 

So, first off, they’re having a normal conversation. Which is, like, what? Spike saying that Buffy keeps him safe mirrors what he said earlier in the season when he wanted her to help him be quiet. I don’t know how to explain exactly why this is such a big deal to me, but it is. Maybe it’s because he depends on her or because he wouldn’t have been able to kick the First’s influence without her or what, but the fact that she affects him so much is really powerful to me. Also, is it not super adorable that Spike and Buffy are like Mom and Dad to the potentials?

I’m gonna go ahead and talk about the chip removal now instead of sticking a picture in here because I think I’ve overloaded you with pictures for the last couple episodes. I really love how the entirety of Buffy’s storyline this episode is figuring out how to help Spike. I love, too, how the show pitched it at the end like will she remove the chip or not, does she really trust him enough? As if it’s not obvious already that, duh, she does. That doesn’t make it any less of an important choice, though. Not because well, what if he goes back to being bad. Because he won’t. It’s important because it not only tells us that Buffy trusts Spike enough, it tells Spike that, too. 

In this scene, Buffy stands up to Giles about Spike. Giles. Her father figure. The one she’s looked up to for seven years. She makes the same argument she’s been making to everyone else, about Spike having a soul. But not only that, she vouches for him being a good man, but only if they give him the chance. That’s sort of a new concept for her. Essentially, she’s putting responsibility on herself and everyone else to help Spike be better. That’s pretty cool. And the fact that now, all of a sudden (or rather, after her newly found faith in Spike), she considers the chip to be an act of evil. Like, what? Literally, ever since he got the chip, she’s been saying that it’s like God’s gift. Which, for Season 4 (maybe a little Season 5) Spike, that was true. 

It’s strange because she could’ve said since he has a soul, he doesn’t need the chip. That would make it Spike’s responsibility to be better. But she didn’t say that. She said that it was evil fighting evil. Which puts the blame on them. It’s quite a nice show of her feelings for him.

“You look nice” he says. You know he’s thinking holy hell, she’s beautiful. And she’s trying to spare his feelings about the date (but also, is it just me, or does she not totally see it as a date? Because maybe Wood isn’t the one she really wants?) And Spike is a gentleman, again, of course. Which, to me, it looks like Buffy is just a little disappointed that he’s not jealous. Maybe jealous is the wrong word, but she seems to want him to still want to be with her. Does that make sense? Added on to that, or on the other hand, she is also genuinely grateful that he’s stepping back. And then Spike says that some girls like bad boys and that prompts them to remember that they still have the hots for each other, which is good. And Buffy leaves, Spike looks sad because, big shocker, he does still want her and he’s sad he’s losing her.

I was going to skip this moment, but I couldn’t. Look at his face. You know when you’re watching a movie or something and the guy the girl is supposed to be with steps back to let her be happy with someone else, but then they have a moment where he looks at her and his face says God, I love you. Even though I can’t be with you, I love you more than anything in the world. That’s what his face says. And Buffy’s face is saying I didn’t know I could have these feelings for him, but then…how come I am?

Isn’t this episode supposed to be about Wood? There sure is a lot of Spuffy to go around. So, Buffy telling Spike she’s not ready for him to not be there. It’s such a simple scene, but so much comes out of it. Spike is still trying to remove himself because he still, deep down, doesn’t think he deserves to be as happy as he is when he’s with Buffy. Buffy tells him he has to stay. Now, think about that. If she was talking about needing him as a fighter, that would make sense. You have to stay because you’re our best warrior. But she said he has to stay because she needs him. I know they taught us this in elementary school, but “want” and “need” are two very different things. To need is to have to have something because it is essential to you. As in you can’t live without. To tell him he has to stay has such deep meaning. 

And when Spike says the thing about her not needing him because Wood is a demon fighter, Buffy doesn’t say well, yeah, I need you here for that, too, but… blah blah blah. She completely disregards the idea that Spike is there just to be another body. Instead she tells him he has to stay because she’s not ready to let him go. And the way Spike looks at her. It’s like he’s just realized that she might actually feel something more for him. That’s such a surprising notion to him. God, I love this scene. 

So, here’s the thing I love about this scene: the old Spike. Not at first, because when Buffy tells Spike she’s showing Wood the operation, he’s very polite about how it’s a good idea because Wood’s a good fighter, blah blah. But, oh, when dear ol’ Spike gets jealous. I don’t dislike it, in fact, I like it a lot. Because it’s not really the old Spike in sense of the dangerous one, it’s the old Spike in the sense of his personality. For the most part, that’s always a good thing. I mean it’s pretty obvious, but he’s more sarcastic in this scene, he throws in a sexual innuendo, he does the whole macho man thing. It’s great. Also, I like the little nod to Angel with the I’ve got a soul, so now I’m unique…mostly.

Alright, I get that Buffy is trying to make herself “big” for the potentials and the Scoobies, but what she said to Spike was unnecessary. I am proud of him, though, for not biting back the way he normally would. I mean, he argued with her, but he didn’t try to hurt her with what he was saying. 

Literally, this scene was so out of the blue. It shocked me when I watched it because, before this (within the episode), Buffy had no issues with Spike at all. She literally just started something to look tough.

Spike has the right to be confused as hell. And hurt. Basically, she’s making him think that she doesn’t appreciate what he did in getting his soul. That the consequences of him being a better man are that he got soft. Which is bullshit because she doesn’t want the old Spike back. One thing she said that was true was that she was no where near the old Spike. Which isn’t a bad thing at all. And I think Spike knows that, but can you imagine going through so much suffering for someone you love only to have it thrown back in your face? That doesn’t piss you off, it breaks you.

All that being said, I do think that Spike wasn’t being as fierce as he had been in the past. I think he was doing all he could after the First and the soul, so he wasn’t holding back, but I think he was a little afraid to be a badass again. Whether that’s because he thought he’d lose Buffy or because he thought he’d fall back to his old ways, I don’t know. But, I’ll tell you what, when he put that coat back on, he was ready for some fucking action. I think he realized that he could keep that piece of himself, the fighter, and still be the good man he wanted to be.  

No Spuffy in episode 16, but here, have this extremely strange photo instead. 

Okay, here we are with another Spike-centric episode. In this scene, Giles sticks that wormy thing in Spike’s head to suss out what his trigger is. So, I understand why Giles is wary of Spike, but also, like, leave my baby alone! I’m happy, though, that Giles decided to help Spike (even if it was just because Buffy wouldn’t let him do anything else) instead of killing him.

SIKE because he didn’t try to help Spike at all in this episode, he was 100% trying to kill him. But this isn’t about Giles.

I like the little moment we get (after the wormy thing crawls into Spike’s brain, when he loudly exclaimed ow!) where Buffy is worried about Spike. I mean, of course, at this point we know she cares for him, but to see her be worried about his well being like that is adorable. 

Now, after the flashback with horrible poetry, Spike is all defensive and closed off. Of course, after what he remembered. My favorite fucking set of lines from this episode is when Spike says “Get these sodding things off me, I’m fine!” and then Buffy says “Don’t you think you should take a little time, calm down?” and then Spike goes “I am calm.” It’s just so damn hilarious to me for some reason. Know what else is funny is that Spike is so embarrassed about talking about his mother and when he was a baby, as if it’s inherently embarrassing to have even been a baby in the first place. But, for real, can you imagine a little baby Spike? So cute.

And then Buffy stands up to Giles again on Spike’s behalf. Although, granted, Giles is sort of right and Buffy’s judgement is a little clouded, but it’s still sweet okay?

Taking a break from Spuffy for a minute to talk about Spike. The block of time when he’s trapped with Wood provides us with a hell of a lot of information. Other than the flashbacks, of course. So, obviously, what Wood has done to Spike here is extremely unfair. And Wood knows on some level that the Spike that killed his mother is not the same one that’s standing in front of him. That’s why he plays the trigger song. 

But, it’s still a really shitty thing to do because he’s not just killing the “animal,” he’s killing a good man. Just because he chooses not to see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t true. 

Now, in my opinion, Spike took a bit of a dip in this scene as far as morals go. I do think that Wood deserved to get the shit beaten out of him, and I do think that Spike was justified in telling Wood off about the whole “that’s how the game is played” thing. But I don’t really think Spike should’ve said the things he said about Wood’s mother. Mostly because we know ensouled Spike. We know he feels like shit for doing the things he did in the past. I think the reason he said those things about Wood’s mom is because he wanted to hurt Wood emotionally, at least slightly. Which is a regression to the old Spike, and not a good part of him, either. I understand why he did it, but he went just a little too far here.

Dude, when Buffy first looks around that room (with the crosses everywhere), she looks genuinely pissed. As well she should. At first, I was little disappointed that Buffy defended Spike on the grounds that he’s a good warrior, but now I realize that she probably did that because “combat-talk” would be the only way she had even a slight hope of making Wood understand. I don’t think she threatened him for any other reason besides what she said about not having time for vendettas, but I’d like to pretend that she did it to say if you fucking touch my love again, I will kill you myself.

I do appreciate how she said that the Spike that killed his mother didn’t exist anymore. It is sort of sad that all of this broke her relationship with Giles, but honestly, what was he expecting?

Ding, ding, ding. I’ve got an unpopular opinion: I don’t really care for Faith. To be fair, I didn’t watch Angel (other than the Spike bits), but I just don’t really like her being around. I remember when she was the “big bad” she pissed me off so much. Like to a point where I couldn’t enjoy the show. It’s different when an antagonist makes you mad, but you can still appreciate them as a character compared to when you literally can’t watch the show because you can’t stand the character. I recognize that she’s good now, but I guess I just don’t like her attitude. I know, I know. That’ll get me some backlash. But I need to preface with that in case I bitch about her later.

Okay, back to the show. When Spike and Faith meet for the first time (the second time, really, but you know), it’s pretty funny. Especially because of Spike’s annoyance at being compared with Angel. That’ll never get old. One thing I will say is that I like how (and I know they did this on purpose) Faith and Buffy as well as Spike and Angel are opposites…but opposites that are a lot alike. You know? And originally, Spike and Faith would be more alike, just like Buffy and Angel were more alike, but now it’s flip flopped. I dunno. Kinda cool. Moving on.

Jesus Christ, the flirting pisses me off so much. I know that Spike wouldn’t go for Faith since he’s in love with Buffy and always will be, but it’s just annoying as hell to me. Faith’s personality is very showy. I think it’s mostly who she actually is, but she always gives off this sort of fake, “I’m trying to be badass and cool” vibe. Maybe that’s why I don’t like her. Anyway, when she was down in the basement talking to Spike, Spike mirrored her attitude, and I didn’t like it at all. Like, when he was talking about having sex with Buffy, he turned into a stereotypical douche bag. I can’t explain it well, but I hated them interacting with each other. It felt really out of place for the episode, the season, and Spike’s character. I liked the nod to Season 6 Spuffy, though, what with the Spike being amazed with good Buffy is in bed and all.

The reason this scene is important is this right here: Buffy is jealous. Like, of another girl with Spike. What? That never fucking happens. Also, she was totally coming down there to hang out with Spike. There wasn’t any news to tell him, she was 100% just going down there to be with him. Don’t worry, Buffy. I’d be pissy, too. I’m glad they shut that shit down after this episode, though.

I totally forgot about this scene in this episode, otherwise I would’ve skipped over it. Just one main thing to say about Buffy defending Spike to Giles again. The way she says that Spike is the only one that’s watching her back mirrors Season 6 Spuffy really nicely. Because in Season 6, of course, she felt like the only one she could be honest with was Spike. Granted, that turned out horribly, but here it ends up beautifully. 

Good God, this episode means so much. The last three of the series, really. Okay, so Spike is blowing up on a room full of people (that could kill him) for Buffy. Honestly, the group was a little bit justified in what they did. You know, because Buffy was getting out of control. They probably would’ve done better to sit Buffy down and talk about it rather than vote her off the island, though. That thing Buffy said in the previous episode? About the whole Spike being the only one to have her back thing? Well…looks like she was right. God, the things he says about her. You can tell so well how much he loves her and respects her. And the thing is, if Faith wasn’t there to challenge him, he would’ve gotten through to them. Go back and watch that scene and look at the shame on everyone’s faces. It’s good.

And then he and Faith beat on each other and Spike literally sniffs Buffy out and goes to find her. Vampires, man.

I’m gonna talk about the rest of the Spuffy in one fell swoop instead of breaking it up into scenes because, holy shit, that’ll take a lot of time and I’m tired.

When Spike finds her in the house, he’s legitimately so damn excited to tell Buffy about Caleb and the vineyard. It’s mucho adorable. And he’s still totally on her side even when she isn’t (like when Buffy told Spike she believed in him). He tells her that it’s chaos without her just because he thinks that’ll help. It’s SO FUCKING CUTE. Tell you what did help, though, Spike telling Buffy he hit Faith. And as soon as she was like “Really?” Spike went oh, will that help? Hell, I’ll kill the bitch if it’ll make you happy. It’s funny in a sweet way. I guess it needed to be to precursor “the talk.”

So, this talk mirrors the one from “Never Leave Me” almost exactly. Buffy gives the long “I hate myself” speech and Spike gives her her confidence back. I’m gonna break it down more than that, obviously. This is, after all, one of my favorite scenes. Buffy is basically ragging on herself for cutting people off, but she projects that onto the current “her,” which is not the same as the old her (Season 6 Buffy). She did cut off her family of fighters, but her growth from Season 6 to 7 is freaking amazing. Which is why Spike jumps in after she says he only wanted her because she was “unattainable.”

Buffy says “Stage is yours. Tear me up.” And he fucking did, yo. Before I talk about what Spike says, I want to emphasize the importance of the fact that Buffy is listening to him. I’ve said it before, but usually when Spike says something affectionate, she tunes it out. Can you say “character development”? And also, this is the very first time Spike not only tells Buffy that he loves her, but also why he loves her. Okay, let’s get into it.

I’m starting kind of in the middle here with the “100 plus years, and there’s only one thing I’ve ever been sure of: you.” 100+ years. Dude, that’s a long time of not being sure of anything. Buffy breaking through that mold is such a meaningful thing. And (praise for Sarah) Buffy’s eyes twitch because she’s about to cry. Because Spike telling her how much she means to him really touches her (and the episode’s title is “Touched,” how ironic). Buffy never had that reaction when it came to Spike before this. You can tell how much what he’s saying means to her by just looking in her eyes during this scene. Spike saying he’s not asking her for anything sort of drives in the already pretty clear point that he’s not saying any of this for him, he’s doing it because he believes in Buffy and wants her to believe in herself. Totally selfless. And then what he says about her being “a hell of a woman” is just so beautiful. Spike saying she’s “the one” has two meanings, right. First, Buffy is the chosen one, of course. The Slayer. But she’s also the one for him. The only one he’ll ever truly love. Naturally, Buffy says “I don’t wanna be the one” in reference to the Slayer thing, but Spike brings it home with some good ol’ fashioned humor.

Buffy asks Spike to stay with her. My head is spinning, that’s so huge. She’s looking at him with such love and beauty. And Spike, being the gentleman that he is, is prepared to sleep on the “comfy chair.” But when Buffy asks him to hold her…no hesitation, Spike goes to her. He doesn’t do it for him, he does it for her. He’s completely there with her, for her in this moment. He doesn’t want to think of this night as the best night of his life because he wants to give all of himself to Buffy.

The two of them being the only ones in the “love montage” that weren’t having sex just makes it so much more impactful. They’ve already had their time to be physical, but they never got the chance to be intimate. The fact that they finally get to here is transcendent.

And when she wakes up in the morning, Buffy looks at him with such wonder. She smiles, very slightly, thinking about all he’s given her and how amazing he’s become. How fucking beautiful is that?

The talk. In the kitchen. Oh my God. First off, Spike is trying to make the previous night less of a big deal because he’s used to Buffy responding that way and he thinks that’s what she wants from him (plus, he probably did it so it wouldn’t hurt so much if she said it). 

But Buffy looks so saddened that it didn’t mean more to him (or so she thinks). She tries to brush it off for the same reason Spike does.

Dude, when Spike walked out, I was so concerned that they were going to leave it at that. But, oh no. Buffy was having none of it. Quick note: the fact Buffy is the one doing the you mean a lot to me, tell me I mean a lot to you thing? Damn.

So, Spike is obviously really surprised that what he said to Buffy impacted her that much. And him telling her he’s terrified–of loving her, of letting himself get close, of being this happy–that’s so powerful. He looks at Buffy like she’s his whole world, which she is to him. Then he tells her it was the best night of his life (100+ years of it). I think he was hesitant to say anything because, for one he’s not mushy gushy, but also because (like I said earlier) he didn’t want to talk about him. He wanted that to be for Buffy. But this makes it about the both of them together, and that inevitably brings them closer. 

Let’s talk about facial expressions that are important to me with this scene. Buffy’s face when Spike tells her it was the best night of his life: elation, love, amazement. Spike’s face when Buffy tells him he doesn’t have to be terrified/when she says she was there with him: relief, joy, awe. Okay, we’ve got to move on, even though I’m crying all of a sudden. Dear, I wonder why.

It’s the final episode. Holy shit. Aaand Angel’s back. That’s fine, we like Angel. Angel is a good guy. 

The way Buffy tells him about Spike is one of my favorite things ever. I mean, she’s so mature and kind about it. At first, it’s funny because Angel is totally confused and jealous about Buffy and Spike. Which, you know, understandable. Last Angel checked, Spike was a miserable jackass. And Buffy doesn’t deny that she’s in love with him. And she says Spike is “in my heart.” Whaaa. And she basically refers to him as her boyfriend before saying he isn’t, but…I dunno, I’d say if the world wasn’t ending…they’d probably be pretty close to together by now. I guess they are anyway, but still. 

The thing I like about this scene is that usually, in the past, when Buffy sees Angel (after not having seen him for a while) they kiss and love on each other and basically pretend they’re a couple when they’re together. 

But the way she feels about Spike is enough to counter that. Not in the way that it did with Riley. With Riley, it was more about loyalty. Like, she couldn’t do the thing with Angel because she was dating someone else. With Spike, it’s about Buffy saying she isn’t in love with Angel (to be fair, I don’t think Angel is really in love with Buffy anymore either) but she thinks she could be in love with Spike. So, she and Angel can’t do the thing because her heart belongs to someone else. Yeah. Whoa. 

The “baking” thing, I don’t know that I like that analogy. Aside from the fact that it’s a funny thing to reference when talking about Buffy and Spike vs Buffy and Angel.

This scene is so damn beautiful. Spike being jealous of Angel in the way he’s jealous of Angel is great. He’s not angry or bitter, he’s terrified that he’ll lose this one, beautiful girl. The only one he’ll ever really love. The one that saved him. Buffy. 

And then Buffy calls Spike a “champion,” and I’m telling you, I’ve never seen anyone’s face glow as much as Spike’s in that moment. Buffy, too, is trying to convey with her eyes how much he means to her. I’m so, so happy they spent that last night together. I’m not going to say anything about the lovely looks or the cuddling because it’s so amazing on its own.

The scene that will make everyone cry for the rest of eternity. The fire hand thing. The fact that Spike and Buffy’s love is strong enough to do that? Sure, it could’ve been because Spike was a ball of fire at the time, but you know that’s not what it really is. 

Buffy fell in love with him the second their hands touched. I believe she had been in love with him for a while before this moment, but she didn’t realize it until it hit her: she’s going to lose him. But Spike doesn’t fucking believe her. That’s so damn sad. I’m glad, though, that it gave him the peace he needed as he died.

For me, Buffy’s last words in the series being “Spike,” are totally justified. Spike went through an enormous arc and ended up being a pinnacle character to the show. I think a lot of people still see him as a secondary character, but really he’s become so much more, to Buffy and to the show. So, I think Spike deserved to be the last word to come from Buffy’s mouth.

Okay, I’m gonna do some general thoughts and opinions/closing statements here.

The first thing I want to point out is Spike’s appearance this season. No black nails, no dark lash line. Much less villainous. Now, realistically, I know that James had been keeping weight off from the time he got on the show up through Season 6 because he said that the vampires that “made it,” so to speak, were super thin (because, like, they’re dead). But after Season 6, Joss was like “Bro, eat something” and so James gained a little back. So it wasn’t intentional, but what it did was symbolize the change in Spike from no soul to soul. How he wasn’t all hard edges and bad boyish anymore. That’s kind of cool.

The other two things I want to talk about is Spike and Buffy’s maturity. It’s insane the amount of change the both of them went through just between Seasons 6 and 7. 

So, Buffy. She’s in a much better place with herself than she was in Season 6. This is very good. It’s just such a cool thing to watch her grow. Where she ended up at the end of the series, especially with Spike, was as a very mature and put together person.

With Spike, it’s the same thing. The soul made him be a lot more honest with himself. Which helped him grow. I mean, you can tell easily with his dialogue this season. It’s much more mature. And where he ended up was at peace. With himself, with Buffy. It’s quite beautiful.

Alright, that’s it for this post. Did you make it? You should totally tell me if you did. This is too long, I realize that, but I worked very hard on it and I’m pretty proud of it to be honest. Even edited the pictures and everything. 

Spuffy means so much to me as I know it does to other people out there. I just wanted to discuss my favorite season for Buffy and Spike. They’ve given me warmth and light and joy, and it’s something I’ll never let go. So thank you, Spuffy, for giving me hope.             

Red velvet kind of girl [rucas one shot]

There she was. Once again this week she entered the coffee shop Lucas was currently working at with her nose in a book she was so interested in on Tuesday. And like every other day this week, she managed to take his breath away, although this time everything was different.

The first time Lucas saw her was on a rainy Saturday afternoon when she came in soaking wet, water running down her bare shoulders. The red ribbon in her hair somehow managed to fascinate Lucas even more than he had already been. She came in looking for something to warm up. As soon as she entered Lucas’ working place, it was clear that it was her first time in this place. She looked around, memorizing every corner, every table. The moment her eyes shifted to the furthest corner of the coffee shop where a lonely table which was next to the row of bookshelves was, the widest smile Lucas had ever seen appeared on her beautiful face. Lucas couldn’t stop himself from smiling and thinking about how adorable she looked at that exact moment. Ever since, it was her spot and Lucas made sure it was clean and set for her to sit at, along with his suggestions of books he thought she could read while she spent her free time here.

On Sunday, she walked in with her blonde friend. Both girls were quietly giggling until blonde’s eyes locked on Lucas’ figure. The pretty brunette never glanced at him. She whispered something to her friend before walking to her seat. Lucas’ attention was focused on her and only her. He thought that nothing and no one could have stopped him from observing the beautiful girl. Unfortunately, he was wrong.

“Hello, cowboy”, somebody spoke.

Title : Who do you like?
Pairing : Barry Allen x Reader.
Word Count : 1214 (oops)

      AT CC JITTERS – 1:45pm  

  “You still love Iris don’t you?” you ask your best friend Barry. “why do you say that?” he questions. “well, whenever she’s around, you only seem to notice her, and you also stare at her a lot!” you chuckle and take a sip of your coffee. “What?! I do not stare at her!” he exclaims, his face full of shock. You put your coffee down, tilt you head and rise a brow “Uhhhh you were just doing it a moment ago! While she was talking, your eyes didn’t leave her face and you had such a goofy look on your face! It’s a little sickening to be honest! Im glad she got up when she did to use the bathroom or else you probably would have jumped up and declared your undying love to her right there and then!”

  Barry sqinted his eyes at you like he was tring to figure something out, then he looked back over his shoulder making sure Iris wasn’t walking back. He leaned forward and you mimicked his stance with a grin. “(y/n)” he said in a hushed tone. “I don’t like Iris like that anymore. I thought I did but she still cant get over Eddies death and I don’t blame her. But I can’t wait forever for someone who really doesn’t seem to be able to see me as anything more than a brother.” He leaned back in his chair and raised his cup to his lips “besides, I have my eye on someone else.”

  “OH MY GOSH WHO?!!” you shriek. He simple smiles as he takes an EXTREMELY long sip making you frown in anticipation.

“whats wrong (y/n)?” Iris asks spotting your frown as she heads back to the table. You turn and face her and she takes a seat. “Barry says he has a crush-OW!” you yell as Barry rams his foot into your shin. “I was just explaining to her how useless that Marvel Character Hawkeye is and she couldn’t handle the criticism!” you shoot him such a look of pure hatred as you rub your sore leg and he smiles sweetly back at you.

  “Barry you know better than to insult her favorite characters!” she leans toward him “She’s really into that fantom stuff!” she sneaks a glance at you. “its fandom actually Iris, and yes I love Hawkeye because he doesn’t need super powers to save the world, much like how amazing Oliver is wouldn’t you agree barry?” you ask with a smirk.

  He narrows his eyes at you since you know how sensitive he is about being compared to Oliver. Iris looks back and forth between the two of you. “okay well I’ve clearly walked into a tense situation so im gonna just leave you both to your bickering” she says as she rises from her chair and puts her coat on “I’ve got to head back to the office anyway. Play nice you two!” she says as she throws her purse over her shoulder.

  “Bye Iris.” Barry says without taking his eyes off you. “yes, have a good day!” you yell watching as she walks out.  When you turn you head back to Barry you still find him looking at you, though the glare has been replaced with a smile again. “what?” You ask becoming a little self-conscious. “nothing… I’m sorry for kicking you, I just didn’t feel like explaining myself to Iris, not yet anyway.” Putting both arms on the table you lean in a bit and tilt your head “why not? I thought you told her everything.” Barry looks down as his smile fades and begins to fidget with the nearly empty cup. “ever since I woke up nearly a year ago with these powers and found out she was dating someone else, we really haven’t been as close as we once were… and I get that since usually the first person you would usually talk to or confide would be your boyfriend verses you guy friend, but even now that Eddie is gone we really haven’t picked up where we left off. I don’t know it just feels weird to talk about my feeling about another girl with her.”

  You reach out and take his hand causing him to look up “I understand Barry, its hard seeing your first love, love someone else, but you know you can always talk to me right? You know, as long as you don’t kick me anymore!!” he laughs and apologizes one more time before becoming silent. His eyes travel down to your hand still holding his. You quickly realize that you’re still holding it and pull back blushing. He looks back into you eyes with a small smile.

  You self consciously twirl your hair and finish your coffee. You become a little nervous holding his gaze so you look off to the side at the other patrons giving their drink orders wondering if he had any idea of how big a crush you had on him. When you turned back you realized he was still looking at you as his smile grew. His eyes seemed to shimmer as his right hand rocked the coffee cup back and forth on the table. “So (y/n), did you wanna know who it is im interested in?” he asked playfully.

  Secretly you didn’t wanna know since it broke your heart every time he jumped into another relationship with someone new; but at the same time you were dying to know so that you could look up this girls name and learn everything about her. Not in a creepy stalker way or anything, you just wanted to make sure she was good for Barry of course. You know, being his best friend and all. “sure.” You said with a shrug acting as though you couldn’t care less.

  “Well…” Barry licked his lips causing you to smile like a goof. “She’s actually sitting in Jitters right now…” your eyes widened and you instantly sat up straight and began looking around. Barry leaned back in his chair and crossed his arms. “Think you can find her?’ he asked with a smirk. You turned back toward him with a puzzled expression. The only women you had seen was 2 elderly old ladies in a booth, one middle aged woman yacking on her phone in line, Three teenagers at the table across from you and mother with a small child a few tables over from you. The only viable options in our age group would be the red headed barista, Tasha, that you knew was single; the tall blonde in the corner with some guy you assumed was her boyfriend; and you, which you knew couldn’t possibly be the answer. “….Sooooo…… you like the barista now?”  you ask.

  He laughs “well actually –“ he is interrupted by his phone suddenly ringing. His face drops as he answers. “ok cisco, we’ll be right there” he hangs up and looks over at you. “we’ve got to get to the lab” his voice drops to a whisper “a new meta-human has been spotted with enhanced strength, and a short temper!”

  “Ok lets go!” you say as you both dump your cups and head for the door. But you cant help but wonder at what he about to say…

pet-of-subs  asked:

What scene from HxH did you find the most unsettling? For me it was when Gon confronted Pitou while she was healing Komugi. Definitely gives me chills each time...

hmm good question…  I think there’s a few moments in hxh that really unsettled me (in a good way)

one would be the moment you mentioned… the atmosphere, animation and voice acting all pulled together so, so well in that scene. I think the creepiness of doctor blythe really added something too (one of my fave nen beasts)

another moment i found really harrowing was kurapika’s admission of how much he hated killing people. 

Back in the hunter exam, Killua asked kurapika if he could stomach killing someone, and he shrugged it off saying he’d never really thought about it, he just knows he needs to do it. Then we fast forward to yorkshin when kurapika is standing in front of Uvogin, and he is explains through gritted teeth his complete and utter disgust with killing people, even when it was justified. 

It really hit home to me, at that point, quite how innocent and naive kurapika was in comparison to yorkshin - and how emotionally unsuited he was for the mission he’d set himself.

Finally, going back to the chimera ant arc, the moment when gon told killua he didnt think killua gave a shit… about, like, anything. 

Killua had trusted Gon to understand that his aloofness was just a show - he’d assumed that their friendship was deep and secure enough for gon to understand that killua had tagged along with him all this time was because he cared - and that he didnt need to say it out loud. It still sticks with me as one of the most powerful twists in dynamic I’ve ever witnessed.

“I didn’t… I mean…” Cleo stuttered, trying to find the right words as she looked the other in the eye. “I didn’t think we were actually a thing, you know… I just, well, I just thought we were pretending to stop those creepy men from hitting on us.” Cleo was surprised when anyone liked her. Rarely people did. As a friend they did, of course, but only ever as a friend. Maybe the woman besides her was still acting. Maybe one of the creepy men was still watching. The brunette’s eyes stared around a little frantically, she couldn’t see anyone so her eyes jetted back to the woman’s instead. “Wait so… this wasn’t just pretend?

@bigfemboyjay

“hehe….I’m only uhm…..ge-” Say something, be cool, be uhm…be smart. Act like you’ve been in a relationship before “ Well its just that when a be-beautiful man like yourself says they want to see my room its…uhm…..very nice She leaned into him, resting on his softness “And I didnt ask you to bring a change of clothes because of the hottub silly” She managed to say that line with so much confidence….wow. ‘way to go me’ She thought to herself before her ears burned and she thought of how cheesy that line was and what if it sounded creepy and-she buried her face deeper into Jays arm, blushing so much

Tinder Matched Part 2!

Rated T for swearing

Read part 1 here

“Levy, I don’t want to do this.” She complained once again to her blue haired friend.

“Trust me Lucy, you’re going to thank me for this once you meet him.”  Levy was currently dragging Lucy out their front door to go meet up with some stranger who Levy was hell-bent on hooking Lucy up with. He was apparently Gajeel’s cousin and single, which apparently meant he was perfect for Lucy according to Levy.

“But you won’t even tell me his name! I feel like I’m being led to my death or something!” Which was true, Levy and Gajeel (when she begged him to tell her) both refused to tell her his name, which led Lucy to believe this date was going to be with some toothless creep. But she knew Levy would never actually do that to her, her mind was just coming up with worst-case scenarios.

She hoped Levy wouldn’t do that anyways.

“Don’t be so dramatic Lucy. Now get in the car.” But Lucy stood her ground, looking at the car as if it was some object that deeply offended her.

Sighed, Levy pulled out her phone. “I won’t hesitate in called Gajeel to come over here and carry you all the way if it comes to that.” The funny thing is, is that Lucy actually considered this option. On one hand, it would delay the inevitable, on the other she would have to deal with being carried by Gajeel. She promptly got into the car.

“Sometimes I hate you.” Levy just rolled her eyes and took off.

Lucy pulled out her phone, deciding on sending a message to her newfound friend Natsu. They had exchanged numbers the first night they were talking, since it was easier to chat that way. That was one week ago and, if she had to admit it, Natsu was part of the reason she didn’t want to go on this blind date.

Lucy
Hey

Natsu
Heyyy
Can you save me please?
I’m being tortured rn

Lucy
Literally or figuratively?

Natsu
Not like, pulling out my fingers kind of torture but being forced into something I don’t want to do kind of torture

Lucy
I wish I could help
But I’m being ‘tortured’ as you put it, as well.

The car pulled into a parking lot of a fancy restaurant, and Levy walked her friend up to the door, making sure she actually went in and didn’t bolt.

“Reservations are under Redfox, okay? Have fun! Don’t stay out too late!” Winking, Levy went back to her car with one last push at Lucy through the door.

“Hello! Do you have a reservation miss?” The hostess asked politely, not sensing the inner turmoil Lucy was going through at the very moment.

“Yes, under Redfox.” Nodding, the hostess led Lucy to a back corner with a table for two. Noticing she was the first one here, she took a seat, her back facing the door.

Natsu
At least we won’t be alone in out misery

Smiling, Lucy tucked her phone back into her purse. Just because she didn’t want to be here, didn’t mean she was going to be rude and be on her phone the whole time.

Sighing, she rested her head on her hand, waiting for her date to show up.

For 15 minutes.

Just as she was getting ready to leave, she heard footsteps coming up behind her. Putting on a smile, she was getting ready to tear this person to pieces for being late to a date she didn’t even want to be on, until she saw his hair.

Pink.

Blinking, she took in his shocked expressing which she was sure matched her own, and watched him slowly sit down.

“Natsu?” She breath, entirely surprised and confused and baffled and any other word that could be synonymous with those, because she did not know what the hell was going on.

Quickly getting over his shocked expression, a grin appeared on his handsome face and Lucy had a hard time getting control of herself so she could understand her situation, but damn. He was so much more attractive in person.

“Hey Luce! What’s up?” Still smiling, Natsu was acting as if this was completely normal. And it wasn’t.

“Well,” she started slowly, “my friend Levy decided to drag me out on a blind date with her boyfriends cousin who I was imagining to be toothless and creepy, but instead you show up and act like this isn’t the first time we’ve ever met in person and you were expecting this and- did you know it was me?” She exploded, talking so fast that Natsu had a hard time understanding her.

Scratching the back of his neck, he turned his head away from her while he replied. “Err, no, I didn’t know it was gunna to be you. I said this was gunna be torture, remember? I’m just kinda shocked to, and I just try to pretend like things aren’t weird when I’m shocked. And, nope, not toothless or creepy!”

Hearing him talk was very strange for Lucy too, so it wasn’t for a few minutes after he finished that she decided to speak up, but was unfortunately interrupted by their waiter.

“Hello! I’m Loke and I’ll be your waiter for this evening!” Looking over at Lucy, he eyed her up and down, before giving her a charming grin. “And my, may I say how beautiful you are looking tonight! You may even outshine the stars!”

Lucy just rolled her eyes at this, but she could’ve sworn she heard Natsu growl at the man.

Which could’ve very well happened see that the waiter didn’t stare at her like he wanted to eat her.

“Right, well I’ll get the spaghetti please, with just water to drink.” She told him politely, even though she was pretty uncomfortable with him.

“And I’ll get some spicy chicken wings, with extra spice- make them as hot as possible. It would probably be best if you brought out a bottle of hot sauce too.”

Both Lucy and Loke looked at Natsu like he was crazy. Who likes that much hot food?

“Uh, are you sure you want the chicken wings extra spicy? They’re very hot and hardly anyone can eat them.” Loke asked uncertainly. This guy probably has a death wish, and to even ask for a bottle of hot sauce on the side!

“Yup!” Natsu simply responded looking excited to eat.

“Alrighty then, I’ll be back soon with your food. And if you need anything,” he turned to Lucy now, “and I mean anything, don’t hesitate to call.” And with a wink, Loke sauntered off, leaving the two friends alone once again.

Lucy could hear Natsu grumbling something along the lines of ‘fucking bastard’ and ‘stupid prick’.

“So,” she started off, “Gajeel is your cousin?” Lame, she knows, but couldn’t think of anything better at the moment.

Nodding his head, Natsu frowned while speaking. “Yeah, unfortunately. My old man is his dad’s older brother.”

“I’m assuming you don’t like Gajeel then?” Lucy couldn’t help but wonder. Looking back, the first time they talked he had called his cousin ‘the bastard’, and just now, it seems to look like he doesn’t like him. But she didn’t really know why, since personally she likes Gajeel. He’s good to Levy and despite the fact that he calls her Bunny Girl, he’s nice enough to her, once you look past the rough exterior anyways.

“He’s annoying as hell and we fight a lot, but nah, I wouldn’t say I don’t like him. He’s family, so it ain’t like I got a choice anyway.”

“Oh, okay, why do you guys fight about then?”

And on it went, talking about anything and everything. Lucy had finally gotten over the fact that she was set up on a blind date with Natsu of all people and was genuinely enjoying herself.

“Hey Natsu,” she suddenly had this thought, thinking it was all too coincidental that Levy and Gajeel set the two of them up on a date, so soon after meeting each other on Tinder. “Did you ever tell Gajeel about me? Like, show him a picture or something?”

Because now things started to click in her mind, like puzzle pieces becoming a picture. Gajeel not coming over after his and Levy’s date for an emergency with his cousin (now known as Natsu who did not mention anything life threatening the night they met), Levy screaming on the phone with Gajeel and acting strange then throwing them together on this date.

Trust me Lucy, you’re going to thank me for this once you meet him. That’s what Levy had said, because she had known that Lucy already knew Natsu, and that yeah, she may have developed a small crush on him, since she was on her phone way more than normal lately, texting him.

“Uh, yeah actually, the first night me and you started talking. Gray-“ And that was the name of Gajeel’s friend if Lucy recalled correctly, “wanting to see how I was making out and if I scared you off or not.” Scowling, he continued, “he called Gajeel over because apparently me talking to a girl that I haven’t grown up with is a big deal or somethin.”

Peering at her, he seemed to not have reached the same conclusion as her. “Why?”

“Because Gajeel knows me so he called Levy and they made this plane, trying to get us together.” Rolling her eyes while thinking of the lengths her best friend went to in the past to try to get her a boyfriend. This wasn’t bad in comparison, not by a long shot.

“Huh, makes sense.” Was all Natsu had to say on the matter.

But, to her surprise, he continued on after a few moments. “So, how about it then?”

“Huh?”

“Wanna go out with me?” He grinned, but his eyes held a hint of worry, not sure what she would say.

Lucy’s heart rate started to accelerate, stop it, heart. I barely know him. But eventually her heart won against her brain, and before she knew it she was saying “yes”.


Two hours later Natsu had pulled up to Lucy’s apartment complex, and was opening the car door for her like a gentleman would. Which surprised Lucy for what seemed like the hundredth time that night because Natsu did not seem like the type of guy to be a gentleman.

Finally reaching the door to her and Levy’s apartment, Lucy dug her keys out of her bag, and smiled up at Lucy.

“Well this is cheesy.” She giggled. How could it not be? They just had their first date and now he walked her up to her door, it couldn’t really get any cheesier.

He laughed, and oh how she loved his laugh. “Sure is! Wanna make it cheesier?” He asked, taking a step closer to her. Her breath caught in her throat when she finally realised that yes, it could get cheesier. The goodnight kiss.

“Hmm, let me think about that.” She took a step closer.

“Who needs to think?” He questioned, moving closer again.

He started to lean in, and their lips were so close.

Until Lucy leaned to the side and gave him a peck on the check.

“Good night Natsu!” She quickly stepped into her apartment, closing the door on a baffled Natsu. Giggling, she kicked off her shoes and made her way to the couches, flopping down on one while hugging a pillow and sighing.

“So I take it it went well then?” Entered a smirking Levy with Gajeel right behind her.

“Yes Levy, it went well. Really well.” She grinned.

Levy cheered while Gajeel just laughed with his signature gihi.

Levy was right, she did thank her. For the date and for making her get a Tinder, because it definitely was a great way to meet people.

Request: Omg you should write an imagine from newts pov where hes working in the garden and he keeps staring at the reader and getting distracted, maybe zart or someone notices and playfully teases him about it omg yus :3

*

One thing was for sure, since she showed up in the Box, I hadn’t got much work in the gardens done. It became even harder to focus when she was made to work in the gardens as well. Of course, she was a great worker, but because she was there, I wasn’t. 

I knew it was creepy to stare at her all the time, but I couldn’t help it. She was just so beautiful. I’d notice these small things she did, like smile whenever she walked past someone or talk so optimistically no matter what. And I wasn’t subtle about it either, there were more than a few occasions where I’d been caught. 

Unfortunately, this was one of those times. “Newt, stop staring, it’s weird,” Zart said from the other side of the vegetable garden we’d been weeding. Well, Zart had been weeding. “If you like her so much, just go talk to her. I doubt she’ll want to talk to you if she catches you acting creepy like that.”

“Shut up,” I mumbled, digging the hoe into the ground in annoyance. 

Zart nodded to her, while she worked on a separate patch of soil. “Look,” he said. “She’s finding it hard trying to get that weed out. Be the manly twig you are and go help her.” I glanced at her to see her with both hands around an old dead plant from the previous season’s crop; no matter how hard she pulled, she couldn’t get it out.

“No, no way.”

“If you don’t talk to her I will for you.”

“No, Zart–!”

“Hey, Y/N!” Zart yelled to her. I groaned and looked away, hoping to get out of the situation somehow. It wasn’t like I didn’t want to talk to her. I definitely did. I was just nervous. She looked up from the weed she’d been plowing at and turned to Zart. “You okay there? Looks like you’re having a hard time with that weed.”

“Uh, yeah. Roots are really dug in there, you know?” she said, laughing slightly. 

“Oh, well, Newt here can help you out, can’t you, Newt?” Zart said, standing up and slapping me on the back lightly. 

Y/N smiled at the two of us and nodded happily. “Yeah, that’d be great. Thanks,” she said to me. I smiled back on instinct, even though I was just about ready to punch Zart in the throat.

“I hate you,” I whispered angrily as Zart smiled cheekily. 

He shrugged. “Yeah, but you like her. So go talk to her.” 

I turned to Y/N, who was back to trying to pull out the weed. I couldn’t just not help her, not after Zart said I would. And I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited to talk to her. So I made my way over to her patch and kneeled down next to her. 

She glanced up and smiled at me, and I did the same as we both wrapped our hands around the weed. “Pull on 3. Ready?” I asked her. She nodded eagerly. “1…2…3!”

Title: Colored Lines

Chapter: 4. In Sync

Word Count: 4127

Summary: Hide always enjoyed the spontaneous irregularities in life, the little things that made every day special on its own. He didn’t really expect something as special as the graffiti that had caught his eye instantly and struck something in him though.

AU in which Kaneki is a graffiti artist that fascinates Hide to no end.

Notes: To make up for the lack of updates I made the chapter a bit longer this time! I’m glad I could update before a month passed, and I’ll try to update once again before finals hit because *sweats intensely* yeah.

Anyway, thanks to my beta kanekibot for being as awesome as always, and I hope you enjoy!

Candy couldn’t believe that she had been so stupid as to let her guard down. Of course he was a cultist. Stupid blind dates.

She couldn’t trust people she met in public areas. She was too well known. Sure popularity had its perks, but she hadn’t really been prepared for the lack of privacy. So she had done something she and her friends had always scoffed at.

Online. Dating.

At first Candy had been mortified. What if the guys she met were creepy basement dwellers who slept all day and engaged in somewhat unsavory acts at night? (She was conveniently forgetting her first boyfriend.)

But the men she had met online were nice sweet guys. They had been just as interested in the Supernatural as she was. Of course with her luck she would choose to go on a date with a cultist. Her luck sucked.

Now she was kneeling in a cage only a few feet away fron a summoning circle (one for the demon Zerefer, if she remembered her demon summoning books correctly) painted on the floor of a warehouse just outside of town.
Her hands were bound with zip-ties, her hair was a mess and she had ripped the seam in her best dress.

Candy Chu was NOT a happy camper.

“Scissis… innocentes animos. Unum tristes, obsecro, in adiutorium meum intende…” he chanted, his voice a monotone to her mind. She just had to wait until…

The man stopped chanting, turning to her, the firelight reflecting off his silver and bronze mask. She couldn’t see his eyes, but she thought they would be dark, crazy eyes. The eyes of a man who wanted to watch the world drown.

“Make piece with your demons, sweet Candy.” He chuckled at his joke, while Candy rolled her eyes. “Pray for mercy. Not even Alcor can save you now.” He said as he stopped in front of her, his mouth smirking up at the left corner. She had thought it was cute before. Now it just pissed her off.

Candy acted just then, years of practice and instinct taking over. First, she leaned back and kicked out, her feet catching his knee on the right side. His leg buckled in pain, and she swung her legs up to her chest and kicked out, making contact with his sternum and shoulder, the pain and force sending him toppling to the floor.

She then did a little break dance, flopping from her back onto her legs. She brought her hands (which had been zip-tied in front of her) down on her hip, breaking the ties. She grabbed his knife while he was still getting over the pain and broke her bonds on her ankles.

He got up then. And as he came up to her, his hands grabbing for her throat, she grabbed his arm, dropped to one knee, and swing him over her shoulder and onto his back. He hit the ground with a sharp, solid thud.

“I don’t need to be saved.” She said coldly as she destroyed his summons and tied him up. “I can take care of myself.”

I don’t do this on Tumblr often but I’m about to get serious for a few minutes - if you really don’t care about fandom related things like people being dipshits, then scroll on by and keep on keeping on, it’s all good, but this has been been building for some time now and I feel like I need to say something about it. I included a nice picture of Geoffrey to tide you over in the meantime.

First off, what is being a fan about? Well, to me it means you like Thing, and you enjoy Thing, and you decide you want to spread some of the joy of that Thing to other people, so you set up an account on $website and you start posting about Thing and then maybe other people join in with you and you all squee and enjoy Thing together and talk about it and swap ideas, and then maybe you start sharing really hard to find stuff about $actor from Thing and you get warm and tingly when people discover Thing and enjoy it because of your $website. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy helping people discover and enjoy the things I like! It’s FUN for me to share, and I like contributing. That’s fandom at its most excellent and how it all should be.

HOWEVER.  

I really dislike ‘gatekeepers’, and I really detest people who go out of their way to repeatedly harass other fans when they decide they don’t like them. On its own, this is a common problem in fandom, and one I am fine with ignoring for the most part, but the particular thorn in *this* fandom’s side is complicated by the fact that Paul Gross is officially on Twitter these days, and when a celebrity is made party to this negative behaviour, things get really unpleasant and awkward for everyone.

There is a person on Twitter that some of you all may know, who is currently making it her business to harass other Paul Gross fans. She tags him into conversations that he has no business being part of, she makes very disturbingly creepy flirty tweets at him, she acts as though she is his personal agent/bodyguard and she has this odd habit of claiming her ‘cousin’ is running her Twitter account so she can repeatedly tell him, via her ‘cousin’, how ‘grateful’ he should be for her Facebook page (because he totally wouldn’t be so well appreciated without it… never mind that he’s been a successful actor for decades on his own merits).

Full Disclosure: I had a bit of a run-in with this individual on Tumblr a few years back; they were putting copyright symbols and their username on photos they had no such copyrights to and reposting them. I had the temerity to point this out, and was met with such teenage-level vitriole, verbal abuse and personal attacks, it was simultaneously amusing and annoying. I ended up blocking her on Twitter to get her out of my face, and thought no more of it. I was done with it and felt that was where things ended.

Alas, no.

A friend alerted me to her ongoing stalkery, harassing behaviour towards others a few months ago. As you might expect, I shook my head at the ridiculousness and just kind of shrugged and moved on, while simultaneously wishing they would find some other thing to obsess over. Then I began seeing disturbing things in my timeline: people tweeting at Paul that they would have to unfollow him because they couldn’t handle his ‘fans’ - or rather, a particular fan, for barraging them with insults and doing the textual equivalent of prodding them repeatedly and demanding they apologise for what I saw were completely innocuous comments - not directed to her, but at Paul.

I found myself apologising on fandoms’ behalf in one instance, and assuring them that this was not at all representative of people who genuinely enjoy Paul’s work. I was able to allay their concerns, but it heightened mine. And now it’s coming to my attention via a few other avenues that she is continuing to harass and insult established fans for reasons unknown, while simultaneously crying that she is a victim. She has sent private FB messages to continue laying into them, when they just want to be left the hell alone, even after she claimed to block them. The latest target of this nonsense? A German fan who is, in my personal experience, one of the least offensive people I follow on Twitter. Why? Because Paul actually followed them, when they asked him. She even demanded that this person share any Direct Messages Paul might send them with her. Uh… how about no?

What’s to be done? - well, that’s a pretty good question. What can you do, really? Nothing. This person has a right to be an asshole on the internet, just as it’s our right to ignore them. But it reflects poorly on us as a whole and I fear it looks even worse when the celebrity is constantly sucked into it; my fear is that it would make him withdraw from the site completely and how exactly does one tell a stalkery obsessive fan to just stop? You don’t, really, not without a restraining order.

Please note: I am not really advocating any sort of action, and there’s not really any action TO take that isn’t likely to be irresponsible and get people into trouble. I don’t advocate dogpiling someone, or targeting someone. It never ends well. I am not a violent person. But perhaps we can just stop validating them. Stop following them, stop replying to them. Unfollow their page. Don’t respond to their insults (I actually did suggest just replying with random nonsense words, since their comments and actions are about as nonsensical in nature). Not everyone has a thick skin, and not everyone can resist engagement, I know. I just felt like this had gone on long enough that I needed to comment on it, because one thing I profoundly do not like is people harshing other fans’ squee because they are so desperate and needy for attention that they will verbally claw out the eyes of anyone else they see getting it. It’s mean, it’s spiteful, and it’s rude and against everything that makes being a fan enjoyable.

So why make this post? I felt I should get this off my chest, mostly, because it’s been bothering me that someone is being so mean-spirited and selfish about something that I and many others enjoy, and I wanted those who’ve been picked on to know that they’re not alone in having been picked on, and that it’s not okay, not ever, for someone to do this to you. I really don’t like seeing people feel bullied and harassed, and it’s not in my nature to stand aside and not say anything about it. Fraser wouldn’t, and neither will I.

(Oh and if said person sees this page… you’re welcome. I’m glad you realise that this is about you and that you do indeed have a major problem. Maybe time for some self reflection, yes? Or… you can do what you usually do and probably will, which is hurl incomprehensible babbling rage at me and make a lot of vague tweets/facebook posts about how put upon you are and how everyone is bullying you somehow. Your choice. I won’t see them anyway, and don’t care about your opinion, so have at it.)

You may now all return to your regular Tumblring. You are all lovely people.

Why “Crimson Peak” was awesome and anyone who says otherwise needs to suck a giant dick.  Spoilers ahead, but I try to keep them light

•One of the most feminist movies I have ever seen; not in that sensitive, introspective, relationships-between-women thing that I am so sick of, or in the not-actually-feminist-look-we-gave-a-woman-a-sword-so-she’s-strong-now-jerk-off-to-her way, not in that there are Strong Female Characters who are not strong at all, or even the oh look we gave a female character lines WE ARE NOW SUPER FEMINIST (looking at you Avengers). No, I mean women who kick massive amounts of ass while being deep three-dimensional characters.  They have AGENCY!  Their agency is what powers the story.  The men are utterly inept – Alan needs to be rescued, Thomas lacks agency – the women do everything.  

•Despite having one of my biggest squicks, incest, in it, the relationship between the Sharpe siblings is actually really touching.  THEY MANAGED TO MAKE AN INCESTUOUS SIBLING PAIR – WITH FUCKING RAPE NO LESS –HAVE A DEEP, MEANINGFUL, POWERFUL RELATIONSHIP!  It’s not incest for incest’s sake (like in Game of Thrones, which is the fucking worst) it actually adds to their characters, it shows how fucked up they are, how deeply damaged.  They love each other, they are everything to each other, and it’s super fucked up, but you can’t deny it.  And not being able to deny that love makes you feel dirty and wrong and you feel like you’re enabling a monster, but it’s THERE.  

•WOMEN OWN THEIR SEXUALITY!  THEY ARE NOT PUNISHED FOR IT!  THEY ARE NOT VILIFIED FOR IT!  EDITH WANTS TO FUCK THOMAS, EDITH HAS SEXUALITY OUTSIDE OF BEING SEXUALIZED (she’s NOT sexualized, by the way, Thomas is, and it’s the best).  Despite being a sexual creature, despite having a carnal as well as romantic love for her husband, Edith WINS in the end!  The survivor isn’t an innocent simpering virgin, the sexual woman isn’t killed off for it, EDITH IS THE HERO.  (I am a sex-positive asexual, I don’t want to have sex, but I think that everyone should be allowed to do what they want so long as everyone is consenting, happy, sane, and no one dies.  I think that everyone should be allowed to do and not do what they want.  So yeah, I want to see women own their sexuality as much as I’d like to see asexuals in media.) 

•Thomas is the object, he has little to no agency, he’s the one who gets naked, he’s the one there to look pretty. He is not the villain, Lucille is.  He’s not the hero either, and neither is Alan, Edith is. Usually we get stuck with female characters who could be a particularly loyal dog or a sexy lamp – the kidnap victim, the loving/loyal wife, the girl who is badass up until the end when she suddenly needs to be saved – in this the WOMEN save the day and the men…well, I don’t want to say that the men are reduced to sexy lamp/loyal dog, but their fates are controlled by the actions of the women rather than the other way around.  Also, the female ghosts are hideous, decaying, and disturbing in design, Thomas’s ghost?  Still pretty hot, sure he’s all white and his eyes are sunken but no exposed guts or bones.  When he gets STABBED IN THE FACE he remains pretty where the women get dirty and gross.  It’s usually the other way around, women are sexy and pretty even when they’ve been beaten, captured, or killed.  

•Edith is NOT punished for her sexuality OR her curiosity.  She is allowed to explore and unravel the mystery WITHOUT dying or needing to be rescued.  She can handle herself and whatever she stumbles into.  The Gothic cliche is that the curious heroine gets in over her head and needs either rescue or can’t be saved (in Frankenstein even being offered information is fatal to Victor’s lady-love), Edith is not only curious, she doesn’t only go looking for the ghosts, she is victorious.

•Realistic plight of the female writer

•Feminist without rubbing it in your face. (I hate things like the Supergirl trailer where it’ll say things like “it’s not a man!” or that Thor comic where the Absorbing Man is just openly sexist at Jane!Thor so she can punch him out and say “that’s for saying ‘feminist’ like a bad word!”)  Crimson Peak is not pandering, it’s not fake, it does more than the minimal, and it doesn’t pat itself on the back for it.  

•Addresses male rape by women.  No, they don’t delve deeply into it, but that is appropriately Victorian (sex is not okay to discuss, which is another cool thing about Lucille, she does talk about it).  But the fact that they have a man who has been raped, the fact that they show it as rape, that’s more than most movies out there.

•I’m a big Gothic novel nerd, I’ve read everything from The Mysteries of Udolpho to Dracula, Frankenstein to Jane Eyre and this fits so perfectly into the genre.  A lot of the negative reviews complain that it’s overly trope-y, to which I say this: Have you EVER read a Gothic novel?  They are the tropiest things in existence.  That’s the point.  That’s the style.  The cool thing about Crimson Peak is that it takes those tropes and turns them on their head without breaking them.  So much is reversed (the gender roles between Thomas and Edith, the one in charge is the madwoman in the attic archetype, Edith is not punished for either her sexuality or her curiosity, Alan does not come out the hero, Edith doesn’t end up with Alan, etc.) It’s amazing how well it both stuck to the tropes but also messed with them. 

•Lucille is so so terrifying, but you also feel for her.  She’s a damn nightmare in every way, but you feel for her so much.  You feel for both of the Sharpes.  They’ve been screwed up since childhood, Thomas might even have been normal had the circumstances of his birth been different.  Lucille would have always been crazy but maybe not kill-your-mom-with-a-cleaver-rape-your-little-brother crazy.  Lucille never means to hurt Thomas (even when she kills him), she loves him, she needs him, she just doesn’t know how to love him or anything else.  

•The climax of the movie is so well shot, so badass, so cool, and genuinely really scary.  

•It’s extremely well acted everyone does a great job, especially Jessica Chastain who will give you goddamn chills and the film is beautifully directed.  

A lot of people are complaining about how trope-y it is, that you can guess the twists, and that it’s not scary.  Like I said, it’s supposed to be trope-y.  The twist isn’t in the plot, it’s in how the plot is executed.  And no, it’s not scary; it’s creepy, and the creepiness stays with you but it’s not scary per say.  I wish they’d done the trailers differently, so that people weren’t expecting it to be a traditional horror movie. Like Edith explains in the film, it’s not a ghost story, it’s a story with ghosts in it.  The ghosts aren’t what you should be afraid of.  

The people in the house are much worse.  

It’s still not in my top 5 movies (Rear Window, Fight Club, Mulan, Star Wars: A New Hope, Airplane!) but I really enjoyed it and it may have weaseled its way into my top ten.  


EDIT: Crimson Peak is officially in my top 5 favorite movies.  >>

How to talk to a beautiful girl in public without seeming "thirsty"

Don’t tell her she’s beautiful, don’t even bring it up.. if she looks like she hears it all the time, she probably does.. Just start up a conversation with the goal of establishing a friendship. Start by commenting on/asking about something related to your surroundings.. You’re both there, so it’s already a common interest..

For example, if you’re both in the pet aisle in a grocery store, BAM! You both obviously have pets, there’s a subject to talk about. If you want to get her attention, maybe ask her something stupid like “excuse me, which brand do you think is better? Sorry, that was stupid, my dog’s just such a picky eater..” She’ll probably understandably laugh, and respond with her input. The best thing is, she won’t even know you’re hitting on her.. and by now you have established a common interest.

Use your sense of humor.. Even if you don’t think you’re funny, use it! After the initial contact, continue sharing about your dog or whatever. If she doesn’t laugh at any of your jokes, she’s not interested or worst, she doesn’t get your sense of humor. Either way, don’t waste your time. But if she does laugh, smile confidently, extend your hand and introduce yourself. That shows her you’re a gentleman, and that you’re confident. Once you’ve introduced yourself and gotten her name, you’ve initialed the “get to know each other” stage. Ask questions, be friendly, but do not act too flirty, that’s a dead give away that you’re tryna get at her.. remember, you want to become her FRIEND, that’s your goal, that’s how you get her number.. once you’ve shown her that you’re a respectable guy, casually ask to exchange phone numbers. If she says no, don’t pressure her into it. Enthusiastically say something like “No, I totally understand. Well, it was wonderful talking to you.” “Was that too forward? I apologize.” She may or may not change her mind, but either way don’t get upset or salty.. just be understandable, and don’t act bothered by her denying your request.. that’s how you leave with your dignity.

Disclaimer: If it’s a girl walking down the street, she’s usually OFF LIMITS.. from personal experience, I HATE IT when guys approach me while I’m running/walking and minding my own business.. it’s just honestly so creepy.. So my only advice about that is, don’t be creepy.. if she’s looking down or doesn’t look at you, DO NOT SAY A WORD TO HER. OFF LIMITS.

if she looks at you and smiles, a simple “Hi, how are you?” Is fine .. not a “how you doin?” “Hey shawty” or “hey what’s your name?” those are typical creepy guy code for “I’m tryna holla” ..

If she says “fine, thank you.” and/or keeps walking, let her keep walking, she has somewhere to be .. for the love of God, DO NOT FOLLOW HER.

If she stops, go for it!

This has been a PSA

Disclaimer #2: these rules may not apply for every girl, this information was gathered through personal experiences, thank you.
