she could have done it again

darthyaoi said:                                                                                                                            Now here’s the important question. What do you think of Satele?                             

That one is a bit complicated. I don’t agree with everything she did and has done, but I don’t despise her, either. She had to see and work with the Bigger Picture, but–if I recall rightly–she made sure Theron was being taken care of by someone she trusted.

That is probably the best compromise anyone could have expected, given the war and all.

She could have told Jace, but if she had, he might have had to choose between serving the Republic–which was probably important–and raising an unexpected kid–which is equally important. But again, Bigger Picture.

Theron was raised as a Jedi but failed the tests rather miserably (though I suspect he’s borderline-Sensitive, given what I remember about his Hunches from the SOR cantina talk). He became a good spy, though he tends to uh, be kind of…loose with rules and such, if I remember rightly. Still, he’s gotten into a position where he can really do the whole galaxy a LOT of good.

Satele is possibly one of the more moderate voices on the Jedi Council (I HATE Kaedan, that absolute PRICK, god almighty how stupid do you have to be to PULL A SABER, UNPROVOKED, on the WRATH, who came to you under a tentative TRUCE). She’s strong in the Force, a good fighter, pretty level-headed, and again, I get the feeling that she’s trying to look at the Bigger Picture rather than serving herself.

Sadly, I don’t know much about Jace, because oddly I don’t remember him at ALL from the Trooper storyline.

…this got a bit wordier than I intended.

Context to the story:

The girl cut her hair once so that she could have bangs. The mother disapproved and decided to cut off 15" of her hair as punishment. The girl later again decided to change her hair style and the above was the result; she shaved her daughters head.

Having a few personal experiences with this kind of invasive behaviour it really hurts to see someone go through these kinds of things, where the parent tries to live vicariously through their childs life, to attempt to shape them and make their decisions for them depending on what THEY would do and give their child NO independence or self expression.

Thankfully, this mother thought her actions were 100% justifiable and posted it to Facebook as a bit of a “haha, teach my kid a lesson” and has been hit with brutal recrimination from her community and has had visits from Child Protective Services.

For so many young (and older) girls their hair is their self expression, and in several months I hope this girl will have hers back.

OH MY GOD ok so dearsheroozle was sick and requested a Sweaty Engineering!Asami and Flustered!Korra drawing and I as usual made this way harder and more complicated than it needed to be and didn’t plan it out very well at all and had to just sort of make it work and anyway here it is 

SHEREE I HOPE YOU LIKE IT BYE

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: i am so proud of tsukishima kei. he's come so far. not only did he actually compliment kageyama, which he would have never done back in the first season, but he actually managed to stop ushijima's spike. more than that, he planned on at least stopping a few of them before the match even started, which means he believed enough in himself to think he could actually manage to block on of the top spikers in japan. tsukishima. believed. in himself. i'm literally crying about this? tsukishima's character development is so good. it's good and pure and
reasons why the “save josh” dlc would be actually really awesome

Alright hear me out on this actually. We really should get the DLC. Not only because the majority of the fanbase honestly likes Josh and wants to save him from a fate worse than death, but also because Supermassive could actually make good money on a bonus optional ending. Like, I’m serious. It would be good for them, for us, for everyone. There’s no reason to not do this.

Ladies and gentlemen, I humbly introduce the Until Dusk DLC, where:

there are two settings. the first is success, a crushing perfection that simmers below the surface, a gritted-teeth force that breaks down more often than it runs. it is relying on panic to wake you up, it is nightmares about numbers, it is being unable to stop shaking when the test comes back, it is empty scores, no flaws found but still feels sore. it is the appearance of self-assurance, top-of-the-class, always-in-yoga. nobody gets into the room when you’re sobbing over your gpa. they only smell the candles and not the burning.

the second is failure. it comes in the wake of the smallest thing. a shrug and “you could have done better” rather than a smile. that’s it. and then it’s time to destroy everything. she frowned at me once, we aren’t really her friend and we must never speak to her again. he didn’t want to get dinner, not only is he not interested but he finds us repulsive. it is realizing you are sixteen minutes late and just skipping class rather than showing up late. it’s refusing to study because you understand nothing. it’s taking something down before someone can rip it down for you. it’s isolating yourself so nothing can hurt you and it’s hurting because you’re isolated. it’s missed calls, never-at-work, always-too-drunk. 

that’s it. all or nothing.

Reason #10005 Why Annabeth is My Queen

Annabeth had to burn Percy’s shroud.

At 14.

Think of how that must have traumatized her and caused a strain in their relationship. Remember the cold way Annabeth treated Percy at the beginning of TLO? It was probably because she was sick and tired of having to feel like she was meant to lose everyone she loved. That nonchalance was her means of trying to push him away, of trying to settle with her loneliness and pretending that she could stop caring about him so she wouldn’t have to get hurt again.

After all, she believed he was dead.

But that didn’t work. Somehow and somewhere, she realized that he was worth the risk and decided to pursue a relationship with him. Against all odds, she had faith that that was the worst of it.

But he disappeared again.
For months.

The judo flip was one of the most in character things Annabeth had ever done… Ever. It was her way of expressing her anger and hurt–she wanted to make Percy feel any ounce of anxiety and pain she felt when he was away. He understood and kissed her in reply.

I think this is why “It’s okay. We’re together.” was ultimately more comforting for Annabeth than “You’re alive.” Percy understood this. He understood that she was afraid, out of all else, to live life alone, without someone she loved. And other than the fact that Percy believed he could help keep her alive in Tartarus, he knew that leaving Annabeth to fall alone would be her complete nightmare coupled with death.

When you think about it, those two weeks when they were fourteen can explain a lot about the dynamic of their relationship. And why Annabeth is my Queen, wife and goddess who deserves to be revered.

A week ago Lexa apologized for the tactics Roan had used to capture her and bring her to Polis. She briefly relayed that those measures were taken because if they weren’t, she’d be captured by the ice queen instead, so she chose the lesser of two evils to save her life. Clarke was furious, threatened her, spat in her face. Lexa puts everything on hold for a week – until she could not longer wait –simply because Clarke did not wish to speak with/see her. Earlier in the day she told Clarke she’d be returned home and explained again that she had her brought to Polis for her protection. Clarke’s life was in grave, imminent danger, and Lexa couldn’t let anything happen to her. She then tried to explain away her decision at MW, compared it to Clarke’s predicament, asked if she would have done the same thing. Eventually she tells her they shouldn’t dwell on what’s happened but focus on what is currently happening and what could happen and the danger everyone was in. She had personal invested interest in Clarke staying, but it was also about Clarke’s saftey and her people’s saftey. She tried to reason with Clarke and got no where. Later on Clarke called for her and she presumably dropped everything to go see her. Clarke put a knife on her throat and Lexa apologized for a second time. She takes full responsibility for the pain she’s caused Clarke and for why Clarke was behaving that way towards her. Lexa realizes that she cannot reason with Clarke, that Clarke does not wanna be there and that Clarke just moments ago, was close to killing her. She realized that the damage is done and that all she can do is let Clarke go. Even though that means Nia will overthrow her at the coup - that she totally saw coming - even though that means she will not be in power anymore. That Skaikru, including Clarke, would probably die, and there would be nothing she could do to protect Clarke. She decided to let Clarke go because that’s what she wants. But Clarke thankfully understands the severity of the situation and decideds to remain in Polis.

What I love about this scene is that for a third time, Lexa is taking full responsibility for what she did. She doesn’t try to explain herself further, or make Clarke understand. She accepts that she did betray her she acknowledges it, apologizes, and vows to never do it again.

Yes… what an abusive, toxic dynamic they had.

I will never be over Charlie Bradbury’s death. Not because she was a she. Not because she was a queer character. But because of how her death came about. It served no real purpose other than to push Dean over the edge (which could’ve been done without her dying). It was an off screen death. Charlie had defended herself from the Stynes before, and you mean to tell me she couldn’t fight them off again? Especially one that only had one hand? Charlie Bradbury deserved so much better. Tossing her in a motel bathtub was just atrocious honestly. If she had to die, it should’ve been done on screen and should have been handled so much better. 

Who is Mary Morstan - A Theory

First of all: I don’t think Mary is a baddie, I just think she did something bad. This is a more detailed version of this post since people have been asking.

Clue number one:

Sherlock’s deduction that she’s a liar

Clue number two:

They texted Mary NOT Sherlock.

Sherlock was later adressed in the messages as well but the initial contact was with Mary.

Some said Sherlock didn’t seem to have a phone in this episode but he did right here so they easily could have contacted him instead.

Clue number three: 

Mary knew how to decipher the code on her phone and had already done it when she showed it to Sherlock.

Clue number four: 

Right at the end when Magnussen is watching Sherlock at the screen the only thing we hear is Mary screaming over and over again. Magnussen is looking at the right side of the screen, where Mary is. After a while he adverts his eyes to the left and starts looking at Sherlock instead. So was he really watching Sherlock from the beginning or is he starting to take an interest in him now as well?

Clue number five:

Amanda said in this interview that she couldn’t tell anything about Mary’s background hinting that there’s more to the her than “just” being John’s girlfriend.

Clue number six: 

John and Sherlock discussed the whole “did they put me in the bonfire to get to you, Sherlock?” and Sherlock is like “I don’t know and I don’t like not knowing”. 
If you’ve seen alot of movies/tv shows you start to notice things and the fact that they had this conversation when Mary wasn’t around is something worth noticing. 

Conclusion:
Something Mary did or did not do in the past has come back to haunt her and hopefully it doesn’t break John Watson’s heart or gets anyone killed.

(As always these are all just theories, don’t hold it against me :-) )

To people who are doubting the kiss

First, there’s this line that suggests Viktor is more than open to kissing Yuri (and becoming his boyfriend, don’t forget). This honestly goes beyond ‘just queerbaiting’ because Q-baits usually are never so straightforward.

When you want to just hug someone, there’s literally no reason to include so much detail into the lips.

That arm placement is strategic as hell, it’s the perfect censor.

THEIR REACTIONS. For typical hugging, they look way too shocked/surprised. Just look at Minako. I’m pretty sure she’s seen them hugging a million times, so this should not be so surprising. And his parents! His mom’s got such a cute expression like ‘ooh, I’m going to get a son-in-law!’. The triplets have the ‘LEWD!’ face going on.

This is the most important part. Again, Viktor and Yuri are touching 24/7 so hugging is the least surprising thing he could have done.

THIS IS THE LOOK OF PURE LOVE. THIS IS NOT HOW TO LOOK AT SOMEONE WHO IS ‘JUST A FRIEND’.

can we talk about this moment?

about how peggy goes to brooklyn for the first time on the show to say goodbye to steve?

not captain america - no, this is steve’s blood.

she looks over the water, the very same kind which still unknowingly houses the valkyrie, and returns to brooklyn what is brooklyn’s. the city has seen his blood in dark alleys before when bucky would find him in them still standing - and it will have it again in the end.

this is how she says goodbye.

this is how she lets him go.

After their first date, she had always been cautious about what she did in public situations. It wasn’t something she was over, she didn’t feel like she could ever forget what she had done. It wasn’t like her to bait in other men and even though she knew she would never do it again, she wasn’t taking chances. She wasn’t doing anything that would have her husband and family ripped away from her.

And this date was no different.

When they had finished eating, she had let him pull out her chair and lead her out. However, her heel had been caught on the carpet and she tripped, landing with her palms down against the nearest table. It took her a second to regain composure, but when she felt a hand against her backside, she jumped up.

Her eyes were wide as she turned to Joseph, too scared to look at his expression. “I..I..” She stammered, hurrying past him. She was sure he’d think she had done it on purpose.

MERRY EARLY SWIFTMAS!!❤️🎅🏼🎄 confessionsofaswiftie aka Courtney aka my BFF who I met in line for Cleveland and I are going to the Columbus show on 9/17 and we couldn’t be more excited!!

WE WILL BE AT THE SHOW ON SEPTEMBER 17 IN THE RIGHT PIT

In Cleveland on June 3, Courtney and I were in line but we didn’t know each other at all! After several hours of talking and waiting for doors to open we became BFF’s!! So in late June she messaged me on snapchat and told me that she was trying to convince her mom to let her go… After a while of begging, her mom said yes!! Courtney and I can’t wait to meet up again, we have texted nonstop everyday and we can’t wait to meet each other in person again!!

After throwing a bunch of ideas what we could wear, we decided to do something original that nobody else had done but still everyone knew about so we decided on SWIFTMASSSSS!! We were so excited with this theme because we hadn’t seen much of it! We decided that she was going to be a Christmas/snow angel and I would be a Christmas tree! But somehow we had to incorporate our personalities into it so she is wearing a crown because she is a winner of several pageants and I am decorating everything with glitter… And I put pics of Taylor in the ornaments!! We also decided to make microphones so we could jam out to
Vance (we also made a Vance poster because he’s amazing as well) and Taylor so we made them gold with red sparkles and green glitter glue that say our initials and the year we were born!

We are going to have several small signs that will be around our necks like necklaces as we are in the pit and cannot obstruct anybody’s view!! I am a little worried that the top of my tree will get in people’s way so I have a backup plan, I made a star that won’t interfere with anyone’s view of seeing the queen!! We also have a sign that has a bunch of blank spaces if anybody wants to sign!!

IF YOU SEE COURTNEY OR I WALKING AROUND THE ARENA PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SAY HI BECAUSE WE WOULD LOVE TO MEET EVERYONE GOING AND WE ALSO HAVE LITTLE SWIFTMAS PRESENTS TO CELEBRATE!! (Pics of the presents coming soon)

Courtney and I are just so happy to be able to have the opportunity to meet up again and also see the queen performing live because who wouldn’t want to see it!! We also don’t live in the same states so it’s hard to meet up.. thank god for texting! My mom will also be in the RIGHT PIT with us because she’s amazing and also one of my bestest friends!! Please don’t be shy if you see us walking around Columbus or the arena… We are extremely friendly and can’t wait to meet you and take pics :)))) and you guys can write your name on our sign!

And also a HUGE thank you to taylorswift because if it weren’t for you we would have never met because we are so different and live so far!
Merry Early Swiftmas!!
🎄🎅🏼❤️
Xoxo Courtney and Abbey

Rescued

Word Count: 1426

Pairing: Dean x Reader

Warnings: Language, Torture, PTSD sorta, some graphic descriptions of injuries, angst

A/N: Written for @iwantthedean ‘s quickie challenge. Write at least a 1000 word story with no dialogue. It ain’t easy. I based it off of this GIF blurb I wrote. You may wanna read that first. It kinda follows directly off of it. 

Also this is entirely unedited. I might edit it later so any major fuckups…my bad. 


I’d never forget the night I found Y/N and brought her back. After I convinced her that I was me by telling her the first time she told me she loved me she was talking in her sleep, she broke. She wouldn’t stop crying all the way back to the bunker. I couldn’t blame her. The British Men of Letters held her captive for two months. There was no telling what those bastards could have done to her in that time. I did know one thing. They’d never hurt her again.

I held her close while she cried and tossed Sam the keys, pulling her out to the Impala. I got her in, careful to avoid any injuries. I hadn’t been able to really look at her yet. They definitely hadn’t fed her well. I could feel her bones as I ran my hand along her back.

As soon as Sam pulled into the garage I lifted her out of the car and got her into the bathroom. I peeled her clothes off, letting her know what I was doing every step of the way. As soon as I got a look at her back I had to stop. There were whip marks, old and new, all across her back. Damn near every inch of skin was slashed. She stepped out of her jeans and I looked up her legs, seeing the backs of her thighs slashed. I turned her to face me. They spared the front of her, save for bruises, burns, cuts, and stabs.

In hindsight, Marinette should have known not to agree to get the groceries after she was done at the fabric store. Her arms were now weighted down with several bags, some even piled on top of each other. She could barely see over the top.

Maybe she should have called Alya for help. Though she was just a block away from home, she could make it. She just needed to ignore the burning pain that had been shooting through her arms for the past two blocks.

She froze tensing as a passing car splashed water all over her.

did she forget to mention it had just finished down pouring and the skies were threatening to do so again?

put my name at the top of your list (1/1)

Based on the promo for next episode / One of Emma’s greatest fears is that she isn’t enough.

Read on AO3 or FF.Net

It’s not that she’s not grateful that Killian gets to be reunited with his brother.

Emma is happy to see Killian happy and Killian, well, is absolutely delighted when he sees Liam again. Killian’s face lights up as he embraces him and the two are set on learning everything that happened in the other’s absence. He finally gets to see the brother he lost, someone he loves. It’s the least he deserves after being robbed of the chance to see Milah, again.

(Emma really, really wishes the other woman could have stuck with them for longer. And she doesn’t exactly buy Gold’s excuse, but it wasn’t as if they had much of an alternative with things as they stood.)

So, she vows to befriend the man that shaped Killian so much.

Imagine being Dean and Sam’s little sister and Amara bringing you back instead of Mary.

Dean couldn’t understand what Amara meant by saying that she was going to give him what he wanted most. He hadn’t understood it then nor the days after that but then again he didn’t find it in himself to care when he had to look for Sam. He was already worried enough about his little brother to think about what could have possibly happened. And quite honestly it didn’t seem to him like she had done anything in the first place so he willed himself to not think about ‘what if’s… much less what it was that he really wanted and she could give.

But then it all changed and Dean realized everything the moment those were spoken.

“Stay away from my boys!” your voice echoed through the dark place and both Dean and Sam froze in place, just as did the British woman of letters.

It was at that moment everything fell in place. It was the moment you came into view and Dean got to see the little girl, well not so little, but to him you always were that, that he lost all those years ago to the very things he hunted. He blamed himself more than Sam did, because more or less they both felt responsible for not doing something more to save you.

And now, both he and Sam were staring at you like you were going to burst. You ate happily on your pie “Man death got me more hungry than I thought.” you laughed and Dean and Sam chuckled softly at the words that gave away how much of a Winchester you were. You chewed happily on your food before stopping and raising an eyebrow at them “Everything alright?”you asked through a mouth full and Dean grinned widely.

“Nah” he shrugged, sharing a look with Sam “Just remembered that we’ll have to buy double the pies from now on.”

“Oh hell yeah you will!” you grinned after swallowing “And I am definitely getting a room of my own in this huge place, which you till have to tell me how you got by the way.”

“Don’t worry kiddo.” Dean placed a hand on your shoulder “We’ll fill you up on everything.”

“As long as you are willing to stay.” Sam said softly and you gave him a smile.

“Sammy I ain’t going anywhere, I’ve learned my lesson.”

“Yeah you better.” Dean clenched his jaw and you gave him a look. You were the youngest one, yes, but you always were the one to support your brothers and be their rock.

“I meant being more careful, not giving up my life for you. That I would do again and again and all over again as long as you two are alright.”

“Yeah well-” Sam sighed, looking at Dean for a moment “We weren’t really.” he confessed and you sighed, dropping your fork.

“I know you weren’t. And I understand but these holes- we can fill them, the way we always had. The Winchester way.” you placed a hand on each of their own.

“And we got plenty of them, don’t we?” Dean muttered and you squeezed his hand, knowing you were quite responsible for it. You could only begin to imagine how they would feel at having to burn your body. Hell even carry to burn it.

“Well- truth is that- having you here?” Sam gave you a weak smile “It feels in the biggest hole.”

listen im not saying that lexa put clarke over her position as commander but……that is sort of what i’m saying.

if lexa hadn’t done this, hadn’t agreed to stop the army, clarke would have walked out of that tent and never walked back in. lexa’s not only saving clarke’s people, but for once saving the thing she wants. she can’t do something and turn her back to clarke again. it happened once and it was agony. and now, they’re taking steps forward together.

and this could have disastrous consequences if it’s not handled the right way. lexa has to find a new way to assert her power. otherwise, another vote of no confidence might arise and this time there’s no clarke to stop the vote from being unanimous. 

Dropped In- Closed AU RP with strayxbullet

This was probably the stupidest idea she would ever have. But honestly, this had to be done. No longer could she bring herself to stay there, to listen to his constant screaming, to force herself to pretend she was happy. She couldn’t do it anymore. Tonight had pushed her over the edge; maybe that was why she left the way she did. Obviously he wanted her to stay, but this was doing downhill and he knew it. And if he hadn’t thrown a glass at the wall, maybe she would have reconsidered. Than again, she’d been planing to do this for months. It was for the best, really.

Her backpack was stuffed and was starting to weigh her down. Of course most of the contents weren’t for her. Nancy clutched the infant close to her, making she her head was covered from the bright lights of downtown. This was her last hope, and if he wouldn’t take them in, she didn’t know what would happen.It took her hours, but she finally found his apartment.

After what seemed like an eternity, trying to think of the words to say once that door was opened, she rang the bell. It was on first impulse really; she didn’t mean to just yet. Too late, she could already hear the footsteps coming towards the door. This was it, no turning back. Nancy shut her eyes for a second, and opened when once she felt the door swing open.

“…I need help.”
