I’m sorry… but I will never understand how Zutara is deemed unhealthy, dark, and abusive. I refuse to believe that relationship would’ve been anything other than wholly understanding and loving - and I’ll show you why… with pictures.

At the end of season two and the beginning of season three, we see Zuko struggling with his view of right and wrong. He’s betrayed his uncle, he’s going home, he’s struggling with a whirlwind of emotion and when given the opportunity to open up, by a girl who’s known him his entire life, he readily takes it.

Mai: Aren’t you cold? 
Zuko: I’ve got a lot of my mind. It’s been so long… over three years since I was home. I wonder what’s changed. I wonder how I’ve changed. 

In any functioning, healthy relationship, you would expect this flood of feelings and thoughts to met with sympathy or input or at the very least… a hand on the shoulder and a comforting hug. Instead, Zuko is basically told to shut up, to put up, to push the feelings away because they aren’t important enough to be bothered with. 

Now, you might come at me and say well, Mai really didn’t ask. She just wanted to know if he was cold and that’s fine. I give you this: 

Under Ba Sing Se, Zuko interacts with Katara in a calm environment. This is the first time they are together and not fighting and they have a chance to talk. Katara, obviously, takes the opportunity to rant and rage about how terrible Zuko is and he quietly sits there and takes it. He only protests, peacefully stating that she knows nothing about him, when she’s finished her wild stream of thoughts, to which Katara responds as such: 

Katara: I don’t? How dare you! You have no idea what this war has put me through. Me personally! The Fire Nation took my mother away from me.  
Zuko, sympathetically: I’m sorry. That’s something we have in common.

Now, Zuko could’ve simply said I’m sorry. He could’ve stopped there. But he slips and lets a bit of information about his past hang in the air. In turn, this angry, hurt waterbender - who is raw and emotional after opening up to the enemy - could’ve easily told him to shut up. She would have every right to. He’s hurt her. He’s scared her and chased her all over the world. 

But she doesn’t. She’s known him for five minutes, but she quickly turns around and let’s Zuko open up about his life, his scar, the things that bother him. And then she offers to fix one of the things that weighs him down!!!

And these are quiet, peaceful moments between these pairs. There’s no fighting or drama. If you really want to see how these relationships function, let’s look at periods when both parties are upset with the other. 

For example, let’s assess two intense interactions between Mai and Zuko in the Boiling Rock and then, Katara and Zuko in the Southern Raiders.  

In the Boiling Rock, Mai is angry with Zuko for leaving the Fire Nation, essentially dumping her in the process, and only explaining his motivations and plans through a letter. Now, I get why she says she deserved a face-to-face conversation, but why does she think she deserves one? She shut him down when he last expressed his conflicting decisions, so why does she think he would even feel comfortable explaining his choice to commit treason? 

And look at his body language - they’re together again and there is a chance for her to let him express himself in the way she wants, but she’s belittled him. He’s made to feel small and worthless by someone he thought he could trust (hmmm sound familiar *cough* Ozai *cough*). Then that’s it. She decides whatever he’s said is enough and she’s through and she throws the letter at him, promptly storming out.

Then we have the Southern Raiders… Katara feeling the bitter sting of Zuko’s betrayal in Ba Sing Se is given a chance to get an explanation from him. 

First of all, Zuko seeks her out. It’s obvious she’s pissed, but they are facing each other, having an eye-level conversation, and Zuko’s expression holds remorse and an earnest drive to fix the problem. Even in the intense, heated moment, Katara shows him a certain amount of respect. She takes him head on. She doesn’t belittle or negate him. She gives valid reasons why she’s upset and he listens and tries to fix it.

In a way, he does fix it - the best he can. Katara is heartbroken (much more than Mai is) and she let’s him take her on this journey with an unknown ending and trusts him with her decision - whatever it is. He doesn’t pressure her, he doesn’t push his thoughts or feelings on her. He let’s her be… until Katara decides she’s through and she forgives him. SHE FORGIVES HIM. She forgives the face of the enemy, the son of the man that terrorized her home, the countryman of the person who killed her mother. She forgives him and it’s like this fucking weight lifts off both of them. 

Sure… you can come at me and say Oh, well Mai saved Zuko at the Boiling Rock… Okay fine, I’ll give you that.  It didn’t change anything between them. She came right back at the end of the series and threatened him again. Is she still so incapable of understanding his motivations? Can she not see what his decision brought about? Look around you, Mai! Zuko sacrificed everything and, in turn, saved the world. He wasn’t purposefully being hurtful and vindictive. He wasn’t trying to disappoint you. He was trying to bring about a better future and he fucking succeeded. 

And I just want to post that image side-by-side with the image of Katara kneeling over him post-lightning scene. Katara watches Zuko - the future Fire Lord, the world’s last chance for a decent ruler in the Fire Nation - throw his life by the way side in favor of hers. He literally tossed aside everything they’d worked for and hoped for - he almost gave it all up to save her life.

Mai - who’s relationship was sacrificed for the greater good - threatens Zuko. Katara - who’s last year has been spent training and building up to this final battle - doesn’t. She understands him. She gets him. She’s grateful for him.

From their very first, real interaction, Katara gets Zuko. She takes the time to learn about him and he takes the time to learn about her. It’s healthy. It’s conducive. And even if you don’t think it’s romantic, it’s certainly some next level friend shit. 

If anything, it’s the first relationship shown here that’s unhealthy.

Through out the Salvatore mansion the sound of pacing could be heard. The crackling fire, the movement of Damon in the kitchen, Stefan’s  soft music playing in his room, and Alaric’s car pulling into the driveway, couldn’t compare to Kai Parker’s nervous pacing.

The worst part about it was that it didn’t stop. From the moment Kai had arrived at Damon and Stefan’s residence he was pacing. That was almost two hours ago.

At first the two brothers found it funny, a man so nervous to ask a girl a simple question, that he was left silently pacing in the living room until someone would physically stop him.

But then ten minutes past by and Kai was still in the living room, moving back and forth over and over again, with what seemed to be no end.

When Stefan had asked Kai what was wrong, all he had done was placed a small black velvet box on the couch next to him and then proceeded to pace.

Stefan almost chocked at the inference, and almost died again when he saw the ring. Damon had a similar reaction.

They had called Alaric over for some advice, not knowing what to do in a situation like this.

Now, the three men all surrounded Kai and his pacing, waiting for him to sit down.

“Kai, why don’t you just take a seat before your legs fall off. Let’s talk about this.”

Alaric said, understanding pre-proposal jitters, however not to this extent.

When Kai didn’t stop moving, Damon had sighed and looked over to Stefan and Alaric with raised eyebrows. Then he brought his hand up and slapped him across the cheek.

“Ow!”

“Damon!”

“Someone had to get him to stop.”

Now Kai sat on one couch while the other three sat on the one across from him, almost in an interrogation style.

“Kai just talk to us, tell us what you’re so worried about.”

Stefan said calmingly, in an effort to keep Kai from pacing again.

“What if she says no? Why would (Y/N) want to marry me anyway? I’m a terrible person whose done terrible things, I don’t even know why she’s with me. Maybe for sex, do you think she would-”

“No, shut up.”

Damon stated cutting him off, not wanting to hear about his friends sex life.

“Listen, granted you’ve messed up quite a lot but clearly that had no impact on (Y/N). She loves you and you know that, theres no reason to be nervous. Now, since that’s cleared from the air, how do you plan on asking her?”

Alaric shifted the conversation and Kai just shrugged with a nervous expression on his face.

“Wait so you bought a ring, without a plan?”

Stefan questioned, curious as to how he would have hidden the ring from your curious mind.

“I clearly don’t think much okay? I just want to ask her, thats all. Nothing huge and sappy like you see in the movies, I think I would throw up. Also, so many things could go wrong, like if we put up lights they could blow out of flowers could make her allergies worse and what if-”

“Maybe you should stop talking.”

Damon’s snarky comment cut him off, then he looked to Alaric and Stefan with pleading eyes.

“Please help me, I’m hopeless.”

Alaric sighed and pinched the bridge of his nose.

“You said you just wanted to ask her right?”

Kai nodded with his head placed in his hands. 

“Why don’t you just walk with her, talk to her about everything and anything and just propose?”

Stefan suggested from his spot on the couch. 

“Or you can buy a bottle of bourbon and knock it down to loosen your nerves.”

Damon added, while both Alaric and Stefan smacked him over the head.

“I’m kidding, just put your man pants on and propose! She loves you for some reason!”

“The walk sounds nice, its casual and romantic, if you wanna add a little pizzazz you can.”

Kai nodded and left the house.

“The ring!”

Alaric yelled, bringing Kai’s attention back to the boys and ran over to the couch and took the ring, then left the house.

* * *

Kai stood in front of your shared apartment door and took out the key, unlocking it and entering to see you sitting on the couch eat a bowl of ice cream.

“Hey babe what’s up?”

You asked turning down the TV’s volume. 

“We’re gonna go on a walk so take your pjs off and lets roll.”

Kai cringed and shut his eyes and sighed.

“Sorry, just put on whatever you like and let me take you to the park, it won’t be as weird as I made it I promise.”

You laughed and stood up from the couch. You walked over to Kai and put your hand on his forehead.

“You feeling ok? You seem a little off.”

You moved your hand from his forehead to his cheek and he relaxed at your kind touch.

“I’m ok, yeah, just go get changed and we’ll walk and talk you know?”

Nodding, you left the room and smiled, laughing at his odd behavior.

After changing, you came out of your room and saw Kai, still standing near the door. He took you hand and led you out of the apartment and into his car.

“We’re not walking?”

“Yeah, just not around the block.”

Through the drive, you looked out the car window wondering about the final destination and why Kai is not as confident as he normally is. A short drive later, Kai stopped the car and you two got out. Kai led you to a empty walkway and placed his hand on yours.

“Now, (Y/N) I know that I don’t deserve an award for the greatest person of the year and I sure as hell don’t understand how you even put up with me so I kinda just wanted you to know that you mean a lot to me.” 

You gasped when you saw the rose petals that led to a cut down tree stump which held a small opened ring box.

“Kai…”

Tears started to brim your eyes as Kai led you through the rose petals to the tree stump.

“(Y/N),”

He took the ring of the tree and got down on one knee.

“There is no world I could travel to where I could be happier than I am right now. You are the love of my life and the only person that sees me for me, so will you do me the honor and become my wife?”

Tears were now falling down your face and you could only muster a small whisper.

“Yes.”

Kai’s eyes filled with joy and quickly flooded with tears. All his nerves from before vanished once he put the beautiful engagement ring on your finger.

If not too much for ask, would made clear what was Sam's arc in season 10 and 11? It's for a fanfiction purpose

Hey - congrats on writing a story! *happy dance*

The thing is, as you can see from my ‘sam winchester’ tag, I’m not sure I understand Sam very well, and it may be snobbish of me, but I have a feeling it’s their fault, not mine. Like, since Sam’s background is more similar to my own, he should be easier to write than Dean (language, register, bookish interests - all these things are a lot more relatable to me than everything Dean is) and yet, like you, I struggle with him because we simply don’t know all that much about him.

Here is what I understand - I just hope it’ll be useful to you.

S10 was the big redemption season for Sam. Since the very beginning of the show, he was the brother who could do it on his own - the one who could live alone and make friends and have a stable relationship - and even when he and Dean were reunited (or, well, when Dean crashed into his life), Sam continued to be a lot more rational in his affection than Dean was. He was Mr It’s my choice and also Mr It was their choice, and this created a lot of tension with Dean because Dean doesn’t love like that - Dean loves like a parent does, and that means sometimes he goes against what other people want (and especially what Sam wants) because he’s convinced he knows better and he’s doing stuff for their own good (in this sense, it’s highly significant he allowed Claire to be dosed with that thing and basically kill herself). This means that sometimes they have trouble with each other, because Dean feels unloved and Sam feels smothered and disrespected. Now, coming to S10 - normally, when Dean dies/disappears, Sam fails to get him back. After S3, Dean literally found him in bed with a prostitute and sure, Sam had tried to save him, but Cas’ very presence made clear how useless those attempts had been. Sam would not have been able to rescue Dean from Hell - angels had to do it instead. Then we had the infamous S8 thing - Dean fell into Purgatory and Sam - gave up? It’s still not clear to me what happened to him and why he did what he did, but when he was confronted by both Dean and Kevin it was obvious he felt plenty guilty about it. And next there was that big Gadreel fight, and at some point Sam even stated, quite clearly, that no - if their places had been reversed, he wouldn’t have saved Dean - he would have respected Dean’s wishes instead. All this means that, normally, when Sam woke up to find this message -

- he should have backed out and left Dean to his demonic destiny. Instead, Sam doesn’t. He gets determined and stubborn and cruel, even, and shuts off his moral compass almost as completely as Dean did because he wants to get his brother back. So I would say that S10 marks the beginning of a new phase for Sam - he’s no longer fighting his life, and he’s not longer trying to get out, and he’s no longer hoping for some magical quick fix (like closing the Gates of Hell). He now knows he’ll be a hunter forever, and he’s starting to be okay with it, and he’s trying to find ways to fit a bit better into this lifestyle - to reconcile who he is with what he does, because he finally recognizes both these things are important. The first step is letting go of his convictions and try to be the person Dean would want him to be - which sounds awful, but it’s not. Like, Sam knows by now that Dean doesn’t get it - that in Dean’s book, allowing people to do anything, even sink to the bottom, because they’re adults and can make up their own minds - that’s not respecting someone’s choices, but giving up on them. So by pursuing Dean so ferociously, Sam is not doing what he himself thinks is right, but what he knows Dean would want. This journey, despite its horrendous consequences (ie, that Darkness business) is coded as positive because it ends in a reversed martyrdom scene - like it happened at the end of S5 (and S8), Sam tries to give himself up, but this time it actually works - nobody dies, Dean is cured, and the bond of love between them is stronger than ever. In fact, they start S11 on equal foot - just as Sam’s taken a step back and tried to see the world from his brother’s point of view, Dean loosens the reins a bit and finally starts to accept Sam is his own person. This time, when they separate, is not because they disagree, but because they trust each other. And, sure there are bumps here and there, but Sam also gets stronger and stronger - emboldened by the fact he’d been right in S10 and had, in fact, understood Dean better than Dean had understood himself -

(and, perhaps, more importantly, he’d been able to help and support his brother better than his supernatural allies (Crowley had misjudged the situation gravely, and Cas had almost gotten himself killed) - and this is important, because it’s something Sam had resented in the past, remember? That Dean preferred other people’s, other creatures’, company, because Sam didn’t get it and wasn’t strong enough?)

- he continues to act as his brother’s conscience as Dean is pursued by Amara - he reassures Dean, he’s there for Dean, and he believes in Dean when Dean is very close to not trusting himself any longer. 

Also, S11!Sam evolves in other ways. Most significantly, after a long pause from romantic entanglements, he gives in to joyous, casual sex with a pretty nobody and even considers the possibility to settle down with someone - incredibly, someone who knows about the life, not a partner for whom he needs to become someone he’s not. With Jess, he’d been a completely artificial person (she didn’t know about the hunting, and okay, but she also didn’t know about his terrible childhood, or Dean and John); with other partners, he’d sort of accepted their worlds into himself, thereby erasing himself almost completely (he fell back into the role of bookish student with Sarah Blake, he became daring and wild and ruthless with Ruby, he fit so perfectly into Amelia’s life many of us speculated she wasn’t even a real person at at all); but now, all that is over. Now, Sam ‘either/or’ Winchester wants to find a middle ground, thinks he’s good enough that someone should love him as he is - that’s huge.

So, sorry - I don’t know if all this makes sense, of if it helps you with your story. I guess the bottom line is - after a few seasons of general misery and being adrift (I’m not sure how much of that was the character and how much the writing, but anyway), I think S10 marks the beginning of Sam’s final phase - perhaps a first step towards what many of us want him to become: the new Bobby, perhaps a sort of head of the American MoL. A scholar, an expert, maybe a witch. Someone who’s comfortable with, and accepting of, himself and his choices, someone who lives with a partner who loves him and is finally over his traumatic past - Azazel, Ruby, Lucifer, his perceived and real status of freak and outsider. In short, a happy person.

God knows he deserves it.

okay so like…heathers the musical has ripped my heart into a thousand pieces and I needed to find a way to cope and this is what I came up with. when veronica said she wished she met jd before he got fucked up I was like me too veronica!!!! me too!!!! so this is p much what I think would have happened if they did. its not a fic its just a long ass headcanon I wrote real quick.

anonymous asked:

Hello! Could you do an hc where MC was really close to Rika (family or friendship) and the RFA + V + Saeran tell her what Rika's done and MC gets really angry/upset and doesn't believe them for a little while?

This is honestly a really great and interesting request! I really hate Rika but looking at her situation in this unique point of view was fun yet challenging but I loved it! I sincerely hope that you enjoy!!~


Yoosung

  • You were Rika’s best friend and when she first introduced you to Yoosung, the three of you were inseparable
  • Rika told you that she was creating a charity group and asked if you wanted to join but you honestly had too much going on at the time
  • And that was the last time you ever saw Rika
  • A couple of months later, your door bell rung and you opened it to find Yoosung, biting his lip and looking ashamed
  • “MC, we need to talk about Rika.”
  • So you and Yoosung sat down, telling you everything that Rika had done from blinding V to betraying the RFA altogether
  • But you didn’t believe a word he said, it was Rika, his own cousin and your best friend, how could he say those lies to you?
  • You snapped, telling Yoosung that his lies were disgusting and it was awful that he would say such things about his cousin like that
  • Yoosung tried to calm you down but you shoved him out of your home and slammed the door in his face
  • About a week later, Yoosung came back to your home saying that he had evidence proving about what Rika did
  • He showed you Rika’s journal that she kept when she was the leader of Mint Eye
  • As you read the pages, it seemed that Yoosung may have been telling the truth since you knew that it was her handwriting in the book
  • You started to break down and cry, not wanting to believe that Rika, your best friend, was capable of doing such awful things
  • Yoosung wrapped his arms around your shoulder, reassuring you that things were tough for him too but the two of you would get through it together

Zen

  • It always amazed Zen that you were the reason why Rika met him and he joined the RFA
  • You were Rika’s cousin and told her to go see a musical that Zen was in because in your opinion, Zen was an amazing actor who she had to see
  • But as time went on, Rika talked to you less and less, you figured that she had been busy with the RFA
  • Soon all of your connection with Rika was cut off and you didn’t hear a thing about her until Zen came to visit you one day
  • You had to admit, you were a little starstruck seeing Zen but the frown drawn on his face made you feel uneasy
  • “There’s no real easy way to put this MC…”
  • Zen sat you down and explained why Rika suddenly cut off her connections with you and how she created Mint Eye to ‘cleanse’ people
  • But you stopped listening to him, how could Rika do such terrible things to others?
  • By the time Zen was finished telling you about her, you were sobbing uncontrollably, not sure what to think anymore
  • You started yelling at Zen, calling him a liar and shouting for him to get out and never talk to you again unless he wanted to tell you the truth
  • It had been almost two weeks later when Zen came back and showed you her medical records stating that she was mentally unstable along with her scribbled notes talking about how she was going to become the world’s savior
  • Yet again, you started crying, unable to process that Zen had in fact told you the truth about your cousin
  • Zen brought you in for a warm hug as you buried your face into his chest, with him whispering how he was going to help you overcome the sadness no matter what

Jaehee

  • Jaehee was always a bit wary of Rika and her friends, so you were no exception
  • But when she found out just how close of friends the two of you were, it broke her heart
  • Jaehee knew that you needed to know the truth about the awful things Rika did so one day she invited you to her cafe to talk
  • She grabbed you a cup of your favorite drink and sat you down, taking a deep breath to mentally prepares herself
  • “I need to tell you something MC and it may be difficult to understand, but please hear me out.”
  • Jaehee told you about how Rika left the RFA in order to form Mint Eye and how instead of ‘saving’ people, she only ended up hurting them
  • But you didn’t care what she had to say, she didn’t know Rika like you did right?
  • You scoffed at her explanation, telling her that lying to you was ridiculous and you knew Rika better than anyone else so there’d be no way she would do anything harmful to anyone
  • You left Jaehee’s cafe since she decided to apparently lie to you about your best friend
  • A week later, Jaehee called you to visit her at her cafe again because she wanted to apologize to you
  • You cautiously agreed but when you got there, Jaehee handed you the statements from Rika’s followers as they described how she harmed them both physically and mentally
  • You broke down, not wanting to believe it but the facts were legitimate so you had no choice but to believe them
  • Jaehee put her hand over top of you, telling you in a gently voice that it was okay to cry and be upset and that she would help you in whatever way she could

Jumin

  • Having a crush on Rika for her to then be engaged to his best friend followed by having her create a seriously messed up cult was bad enough for Jumin
  • But when he realized that you, Rika’s cousin, still didn’t know what horrible things she had done to all of those people was even worse for him
  • Jumin knew that he had to let you know what happened because you had the right to know
  • It may have also been because Jumin had a slight crush on you but he pushed that thought out of his mind for now and focus
  • Jumin invited you to his house to discuss things with you and he calmly told you about Rika and how she injured V and how she almost destroyed the RFA
  • But Jumin was crazy, Rika was such a kind and caring person so why was he saying such terrible things about your cousin?
  • You didn’t want to listen to his lies anymore but when you tried to leave, Jumin grabbed your arm, insisting that you listen to reason
  • But you were livid and slapped him across the face telling him to never think about saying anything hurtful about Rika again and how he needs to get his facts right
  • Jumin let you leave but he was determined to show you Rika’s true form
  • A couple of days later, he went to your house and almost broke your door since he was knocking so hard
  • You cracked the door open and Jumin handed you some documents stating how the building Rika used for Mint Eye had to be closed off since there were many toxic chemicals that were found throughout the building that she used on her followers
  • You let Jumin in, apologizing for being rude but telling him that you were just hurt since you were so close to Rika and didn’t want to believe that she could do anything so horrible
  • Jumin embraced you and told you that he would do anything to help you because he knew you were hurting and he was too, but you two would be able to overcome it in time

Seven

  • Seven had spent so much time thinking about how he would tell you about the whole Rika fiasco
  • You and Rika were the closest of friends and he knew telling you about what Rika did would hurt you deeply
  • Just as Seven was starting to get an idea, he heard a knock on the door and almost passed out when he saw it was you
  • You just wanted to chat with him but he led you to his couch and figured now was as good of a time as any to tell you about Rika’s craziness
  • So Seven told you everything that Rika did from abandoning the RFA to all of the terrible things she did to his brother
  • You sat there in shock and angry at Seven’s words, there was no way Rika could do such awful things… Could she?
  • Your emotions got the better of you and you lased out at Seven, telling him his accusations were absurd and that his lies genuinely hurt you
  • Seven watched as you slammed his door shut as you left, he sighed knowing deep down he did the right thing even if it did hurt you
  • He still wanted you to know that he was indeed telling you the truth so he tracked you down and went to visit you with his evidence
  • Seven let himself in your house telling you that he had proof of Rika’s madness
  • Despite your protests, Seven showed you a letter she wrote to V that he got a hold of saying how she wished she hurt him more and how she was going to cleanse the world and you were going to be her next victim
  • You scanned over the letter multiple times but you couldn’t doubt it, it was Rika’s handwriting
  • Tears started streaming down your cheeks and Seven quickly went to hug you, understanding how you felt betrayed by your supposed best friend
  • Seven promised that he would help you get through this and would protect you because he didn’t want anyone getting hurt because of her

V

  • Why must I make this poor man suffer?
  • It was bad enough that his fiancee became so mentally unstable but V knew that it would be even more painful telling you about what she did
  • After all, you were Rika’s sister
  • But V was determined, nervous but determined to tell you because you had a right to know
  • V invited you over to his home one day to talk about Rika’s disappearance
  • He then explained all about Mint Eye and how Rika was now in a mental facility to try and get her better
  • You couldn’t believe a word that he was saying, Rika was your sister and there was no way that she was the mentally unstable one, it had to be V right?
  • You demanded that V tell you where your sister really was but he kept saying that he was sincerely telling you the truth
  • V watched as you stormed out of his home as he sighed, feeling like it was all his fault like usual
  • He finally decided that he didn’t want to be a push-over anymore so the next day, V went to your home and found you crying on the couch
  • V went over to gently rubbed your back, saying that he could show you what Mint Eye was really like
  • You nodded in agreement and V took a deep breath and handed you his camera
  • As you looked through the camera, you saw that V secretly took photographs of Mint Eye and even got some shots of Rika abusing some of her followers
  • You slowly began to realize that what V said was true and broke down
  • V wrapped his arms around you, telling you that it was okay to cry, that whatever happened from that day forward, he would be there for you

Unknown

  • Saeran had no idea how any person could ever like Rika
  • She had made his life a living hell and did unspeakable things to him
  • But Saeran knew that you, Rika’s cousin, were still blissfully unaware of the horrors she caused
  • So Saeran went to visit you one day and tell you the truth because you needed to know that it didn’t matter that you and Rika were family, she was an awful person
  • Saeran sat you down and tried telling you as much as he could about what Rika did in Mint Eye, careful not to bring up any bad memories that could trigger him
  • You sat there in disbelief and as much as you wanted to believe Saeran, you simply couldn’t because you knew that Rika was a great person right?
  • Wrong, very very wrong
  • Saeran couldn’t understand why you didn’t believe him and started to feel himself become angry
  • You stood up about to leave until Saeran asked you why you wouldn’t listen to reason
  • You said it was because there was no proof supporting his case and that he was probably just making it up
  • Saeran’s eyes burned with rage as he threw off his hoodie and shirt, showing you his painful scars from Rika’s abuse
  • He yelled that if he wasn’t proof enough of Rika’s madness, then you were just as crazy as her
  • You stared at Saeran’s abused body, lightly tracing your fingers over a particularly nasty looking scar
  • He stopped feeling angry when he saw you crying and as you went to hug him, you apoligzed multiple times to him
  • Saeran forgave you, telling you that he understood why you were upset and if you needed to go to therapy he would gladly go and support you because he genuinely cared for you and secretly loved you

I think we need to talk about how similar Rowan and Aelin’s relationship is to that of Tamlin and Feyre’s. 

The only similarities between Rowan and Rhysand lie in the fact that they’re the current love interests of the protagonists of their respective series. The comparisons end there. Ever since ACOMAF came out, people have been jumping on the chance to include Rowan in the appraisal of Sarah’s feminist male characters and healthy relationships when he does absolutely nothing to be included in that mix. More than anything Rowan resembles Tamlin in his dangerously protective and possessive nature, the only difference is, no one reprimands him for it because the narrative romanticizes him instead criticizing him.

Warning: There is torture (not much but there is) so if you can’t handle this, don’t read it. Write me a message and I will summarize it without any torture or anything bad.

Summary: Bucky and [Y/N] found themselves in the 21st century, the only problem - [Y/N] doesn’t know that Bucky is still alive and that he tries to find a way to get back into her life.

Masterlist


There were times, Bucky knew very well. His head would hurt like hell and his whole surrounding began to turn before his body would hit the ground. These were the times where Bucky got flashbacks from his past. After he moved in the New Avengers Facility, the flashbacks were normally about his past with Steve or [Y/N] and showed the good old times he loved and missed. But the former Winter Soldier also got some about the horrible times with HYDRA and how they tortured him. Unfortunately the worst dream was yet to come.


The room was cold and the only thing in there was an old chair and a few huge monitors next to it who showed the vital parameters of the person who was strapped to the metal chair. But this time, James was not the person who was sitting on the chair with needles in his arm. This time, he was standing in the left corner of the room, a small but effective gun in his hand. He was ready to shoot at any time. A scientist was sitting next to the new victim that was about to get wiped like James got so many times. The little man leaned over the weeping figure and put another needle into the left arm before he went back to the monitors “She is ready to get wiped, sir”

“Good” a man with a russian accent answered. The young man was watching his victim with a smirk on his face while it tried to negotiate with him. The gray suit he wore looked new, like he could afford it without any problems, but it was splattered with fresh blood like James could recognize.

The man’s name was Reece Volkov, a man who always pursued the ideas and aims of HYDRA. Together with other members and Armin Zola, he worked in a secret facility far away in Siberia for the Nazi organisation and watched the training of their super soldier. Zola was a great scientist and Volkov helped him with the super soldier serum which should create more super soldiers like James. Since 1965 he worked for the organisation and was already a bigwig.

The eyes of the Winter Soldier went back to the sobbing person who was strapped to the metal chair. It was a young woman. Her hair was messy and her skin very pale. The dark circles under her bloodlined eyes looked terrible while she was weeping and pleaded for mercy. Her eyes seemed so lifeless, now that she was captured by them and was about to get ripped off her memories.

While his own gaze was cold and without any emotion, the woman always looked back at James and talked insistently to him but he totally ignored her pleading.

“He doesn’t know you anymore, darlin’ ” Reece came over to [Y/N] and put his hands on her shoulders while he laid his head on hers and observed Bucky’s reaction. But Bucky showed no emotion when [Y/N] screamed at him and wanted him to recognize her and their life together. Another tear fell down her cheek when [Y/N] looked at Bucky and growled, now speaking to Volkov “What have you done to him, you bastard?!”

Again the young woman tried to get free but there was nothing she could do. [Y/N] was at the Volkov’s mercy and there was no chance to escape this horrible situation. Her gaze went back to Bucky who still stood in the left corner of the room and held the gun tight in his grip while she sobbed “Bucky, please. You have to recognize me. I’m [Y/N]. Your [Y/N], your doll. Why don’t you remember me?”

“We erased his memory, darlin’ ” Reece chuckled and stood straight again when he circled the young woman and stopped in front of her. Gently, he wiped [Y/N] shedded tears away but she pulled away with a cloudy face. Smiling, Reece looked down at her “And soon, you will forget him as well. Soldat?”

Bucky’s gaze went straight to Volkov as he mentioned his title “Sir”

“Tell me, do you know this woman?” he nodded to [Y/N] who looked up to her boyfriend while blood run down her cheek from a wound on her temple. But he still didn’t show any emotions and shook his head. It broke [Y/N]’s heart when Bucky’s cold stare went back to the cold stone wall behind her.

“Dr. Zola, you can start now. Ms [Y/S/N] said her goodbye to her beloved James” Reece laughed before he left the room together with Bucky who followed him.

Through a window, Reece observed how Zola began to start the machine and the next thing he and the Winter Soldier could hear were the painful screams of [Y/N] who sat behind the window and wished to die.


Covered in sweat, Bucky woke up with a start and tried to settle down when his eyes scanned the bedroom he was in. Before he could grab the gun on the nightstand, his gaze found the person he was looking for. [Y/N] was sleeping right next to him and cuddled with pillow. Relieved but still in shock, he laid down again and pulled her to his chest. He couldn’t believe that HYDRA captured her all these years ago and he didn’t know if they did anything else to her.

Now James knew, Nemesis was not only looking for him but also for [Y/N].

'Oh, my God, I thought you were going to die. Please don’t ever scare me like that again.' cousland/alistair

Elissa doesn’t remember what happened, if she’s being totally honest. She can’t remember the last time she was even in a proper bed. It’s a hard mattress, a little uncomfortable. Standard Warden Bedding when in Standard Warden Buildings. 

She breathes in deep and finds her body aching from her chest to her hips. 

“Andraste’s knickers, woman.”

Her hand is immediately engulfed by two larger hands, and she’s astonished to find that he had ever broken physical contact with her to begin with. Because she knows that voice. It belongs to her husband, who should very much be in Denerim. Last she checked, she wasn’t anywhere near home. This is not a home bed. 

“I know you’re awake,” Alistair says. “You breathe differently.”

Elissa cracks an eye open, reluctantly, to stare at him. “You do realize that is a strange thing to say, don’t you?”

He brings her trapped hand to his chest. At some point, he’s either going to have to get into the bed with her or tug her off of it. Both options make her body twinge unhappily. 

“We’re already married. I don’t think there’s much of an escape now.”

“My hand is sweaty.”

“I’m not letting it go.”

“So there really is no escape.” She gives him a small smile, but even that hurts. 

His face goes suddenly solemn, eyes dark and serious. Now that’s not a look she often likes to find on his face. Sometimes she misses the naive boy she had met, so eager to teach her about the Wardens, filled with some idealistic hope and sense of adventure. No, that’s just her painting him how she wants to. He was serious and bitter then too; he just hid it better than she did.

“What happened?”

“You nearly died, Elissa. What were you thinking?” His voice goes up a bit at the end, and he sounds a lot like her mother used to.

Her mouth is already dry, but it suddenly feels like a desert. Her lips part, but there are no words for a moment. “That doesn’t tell me what happened, Alistair.”

She struggles to sit up with the one hand she has left to her as leverage. A moan strangles out of her from the effort, pain searing through her body, and she finally gives up. 

“You were outnumbered and took a beating from an ogre before help arrived.” Now he’s angry. 

It comes back to her in bits and pieces then. Forging ahead on her own to scout, following the trail of missing girls. Dead girls. Mothers. Panic had bubbled up into her throat, as it does now. What good is a Warden-Commander terrified of broodmothers? 

“I wanted to save them,” Elissa murmurs. “I was hoping there would be enough time to save them.”

“Alone?” He lets go of her hand gently, placing it on the bed, before he cups her face. His palms are sweaty and cool against her skin, but she doesn’t shake him off. “I almost lost you.”

And that’s the core of it there. He can’t lose her. She can’t lose him. 

“Alone.” Elissa knows that she isn’t - because the death sentence that hovers over her is always in the back of her mind - but the idea that she is invincible has begun to worm its way into her body. How many horrors and battles has she survived? “I’m fine, Alistair.”

“You - No? Your armor had to be peeled off by mages. Mages, Elissa. With their magic, tearing apart your armor. Quite terrifying, if you ask me. Imagine if they - they used that in battle.” His words come out in a rush, with barely a break between them. She can’t help it; she smiles. “This isn’t funny!”

“Andraste’s tits, Alistair, I have been through worse!”

“You could have died!”

“I didn’t!”

“You could have. We go together, Elissa.” He runs both hands through his hair. It sticks up at angles that defy reality, but she bites back the smile this time. It’s a nervous reaction on her part, really. “We go together.”

She reaches out, her hand running across the stubble that’s formed along his jaw. “Neither of us are dying anytime soon.”

“You promised me. Maker’s breath, Elissa, you promised. When our calling comes…”

They will go into the Deep Roads together and die together. It’s morbid. It’s a promise. 

“Alistair!”

“What?”

“I love you.” Her hand drops to his white linen undershirt, fingers curling into the fabric as she uses what strength she has to pull him closer. He doesn’t resist, that anger and frustration bleeding out of him until there’s nothing but worry and exasperation left. “I love you, I am not dead, I do not plan on dying anytime soon. I especially don’t plan to meet the Maker without you.”

“You can’t just expect to say you love me and think I’ll forgive you,” he mutters.

“Of course I can.”

“Well, you’re wrong, dear wife. Very wrong. In fact, I don’t think there has been a more wrong person in the history of Thedas.” He lips brush against her forehead. “I’m livid.”

“I can’t tell.”

“I have a good kingly face. The kind that hides how I’m really feeling.” Alistair hugs her gently then, careful of her apparently peeled and pummeled body. “Meetings are incredibly boring, and I have to pretend I’m interested.”

“How horrible,” she says in a soft voice, stroking his hair back down for him. “Being the king is a tough job.”

There’s a definite pout in his voice now. “I know you’re making fun of me.”

“What a terrible thing to accuse your loving wife of while she rests in her death bed.”

He stiffens against her, huffing out a sigh against the side of her neck. 

“I’m kidding,” Elissa says.

“You are a terrible, awful, no good woman.”

“And there’s no escaping from me.” She presses a kiss to his cheek. 

“Don’t do this to me again, Elissa. I will leave the throne.”

Stability for Ferelden or her own need to toss herself into impossible situations?

“You didn’t say you love me back.” She can’t make promises she won’t keep against threats he won’t act upon.

Alistair moves her over carefully before climbing into the bed beside her. She’s missed this. Missed him in ways that she can’t comprehend. “I love you.”

★ Kiawe will cut you if you mess with Lana

★ Sometimes, Acerola sews or knits things for Ilima.. He’s very reluctant to wear them since he’s a fashion victim but at the same time he doesn’t want to hurt her feelings, so he just.. Wears them for a day or so. Acerola mostly does this because she knows it makes Ilima suffer, and it’s funny

★ Ilima would eventually have a Noctowl, a Minccino & a Furret in his team

★ Lana would have a Quagsire, a Politoed & a Spheal

★ Mallow would have a Cherubi & a Whimsicott

★ Kiawe would have a Rapidash & a Pyroar

★ Acerola is happy with her Pokemons,, so she doesn’t wanna get more.

★ Mina would get a Cleffa because it’s very cute and easy to draw.

★ Ilima & Mina often hang out. Ilima loves Mina’s Wigglytuff because it’s fluffy, pink & cute & Mina really likes drawing with Ilima’s Smeargle. Ilima thinks Mina’s fashion sense is disastrous so he often bring her clothes, like, she has 200 dresses & shirts she never wears because of him.

Ilima loves to write. His glove is.. useless, to say the least, but he keeps it to make people believe he’s skilled at drawing & writing. (he doodles things from time to time & learns from his Smeargle, but he mostly just writes poems & fanfictions)

★ Very important. NEVER TOUCH ILIMA’S HAIR WITHOUT HIS APPROVAL & AT LEAST 57 OFFICIAL PAPERS. YOU WILL DIE. Don’t touch Ilima in general if you didn’t wash your hands at least 3 times.

★ You know what they say about the fur of Wigglytuff? That it’s so fluffy you can’t stop touching it? Well, it goes for Ilima’s hair as well

★ Ilima is very VERY talkative and will rant & bitch about everything to his close friends. “I RAN OUT OF SHAMPOO. AGAIN. UGH.” Though, he tries very hard to be a role model for everyone.

★ Sophocle’s voice is grumpy n cute. It’s just. Basically Steven Universe’s voice but a bit more highpitched. Can’t talk without screaming

★ Acerola is your typical creepy little girl with a creepy little girl’s voice and a creepy laugh. Very highpitched.

★  Mina’s voice is like. Yooo, the gamer girl hipster gal thingy voice. Not highpitched, not low, not anything. A bit like vinyl scratch’s voice. “Ugh”s & sighs & grunts a lot a lot. Her voice is like a rollercoster between normal & highpitched when she’s angry. Is sometimes overdramaaaaaatic when she talks.

★ Lana loves the sound of rain & is more likely an introvert, while Ilima would be an extrovert. He enjoys alone time, though.

★ Lana cries quietly, & you can hear very little sobs when she does. Dont make her cry. You’ll get killed. (tbh she doesn’t care about people’s opinion/comments on her. only fishes & reaaaaally close friends can make her cry)

★ It’s really difficult to make Kiawe cry. Either make him watch Titanic, or kill people he loves. There’s no inbetween.

★ Mallow cries very easily, and Kiawe will also cut you if you make her cry. But now he makes sure to check why she cried before he kicks an ass, because sometimes Mallow will burst into tears because someone stepped on a flower. But she’s a bad bitch though.

★ Acerola never cries =)

★ When you make Sophocles cry you know you fucked up. Everyone will go after your ass because you’re probably a terrible person

★ Ilima rarely cries. He just, takes on himself & tries to be chill and kind. But sometimes it’s just too much and he randomly starts crying.

★ Mina’s tears dryed up long ago with her soul

★ Acerola knows everything about everyone. She knows their feelings. She reads them like books. She doesn’t say anything.

★ MALLOW WILL KNOW WHEN YOURE UPSET OR SAD. OR IN LOVE. But that’s it otherwise she’s dumb

★ Kiawe is pretty oblivious about those things, & Ilima will just ask calmly if something is wrong. THEY WON’T LEAVE YOU ALONE UNTIL YOU FEEL BETTER. WILL HUG YOU.

★ Sophocles probably won’t ask or notice if you don’t tell him. & if he sees you’re sad, he’ll stick with you, offer you food, play video games with you, wrap you in a blanket and make you roll, goof around..

★ Ilima’s laugh is cute. It’ll most likely be a chuckle or even a giggle, if you’re lucky. When you REALLY make him laugh, his laugh wil be highpitched & hysterical.

★ Kiawe’s like “HA HA HA.”. His laugh sounds sarcastic even when it’s genuine

★ Mallow laughs like a fucking hyena and it’s annoying. Snorts & giggles n stuff

Marichat: A Peeping Tom Cat Part 2

Part 1

So there is some slight sin here. There is NO smut but there is sin- kind of. The sin is more for comedic purposes than for other purposes well kind of- there is this ending …. okay let’s just say this is not for small eyes.


It was a stupid idea, a really really stupid idea. Even Plagg told him what a truly terrible plan it was but Adrien was determined to even the score between him and Marinette even if that meant embarrassing himself to do so. Marinette already had a hard enough time talking to Adrien and due to last night’s incident Adrien didn’t want the same to happen between her and Chat Noir. Adrien knew he was taking a gamble, his plan would either work and smooth things over with Marinette or it would leave them both completely mortified around each other for all eternity. No pressure or anything.

Adrien transformed into Chat Noir and made his way to Marinette’s and like the gentleman he was he knocked. There was no answer. Chat sucked in a breath before crawling towards the window. He peered inside to find the room empty. Chat made his way inside this time being sure to check that the bathroom door was open and there wasn’t a showering girl inside. Taking a few deep breaths to calm his nerves Chat paced around the room. Should he wait for her to get back first? Or should he just do it now? Chat stared at the trap door to her room. Gritting his teeth Chat made the decision that it would be better to just do it now like ripping off a bandaid.

It is with great chagrin that we herald the return of the catchphrase of the century, here delivered by a non-euclidean chair.

We open with Shiori shifting her personal narrative.  If she can’t be the most powerful, she might succeed at becoming the most abject.   She’s winning, either way.

Or maybe she’s just really upset, because she was given everything she wanted and it all got taken away from her.  The worst thing to imagine - that none of this is a show, that none of it is manipulative, because there’s nobody in the audience can give her what he did.   Poor little storm at sea.

Utena notices that someone is hurting and wants to fix it.  She goes to Juri and asks for help.  Juri replies with excruciating correctness that it’s not her business and she’s not getting involved.

This would be great, if she meant it.

anonymous asked:

(1) I find it hilarious that some people think Betty is "moving on too fast" while Archie was obviously attracted to, and even kissed Veronica while he supposedly had feelings for Grundy, all in one episode. Then, an episode after breaking up with Grundy, he is seen developing ~~something~~ with Valerie. Meanwhile Betty has had 4 episodes of her slowly coming to terms with the fact that Archie doesn't like her and moving on.

(2) So apparently it’s okay for Archie to jump from one woman to the next in quick succession, but god forbid Betty consider a relationship with another person who actually WANTS her. Nope, girlfriend gotta pine for Archie’s ginger dick until the day he decides he wants her too.

what is that strange smell coming from my computer…? ah! it’s the putrid stench of a double standard. why do y’all hate betty? archie treats her terribly and you want her to be hung up on him until?? he realizes he wants her?? elizabeth cooper is so much more than that. she’s not going to pine after somebody she now knows doesn’t feel that way about her. she deserves to find somebody that treats her well and makes her smile even while she’s kissing them. like, um…

look at how happy she looks 

i think queen reinhart really explains it best:

“[Archie’s] a confused teenage boy. He doesn’t know what he wants, romantically or for his future. He’s just lost. She has sympathy for him, but she’s trying to protect him. At the end of the day, she doesn’t want him to get hurt or wrapped up in something dangerous. I think her opinion of him, as a person, doesn’t change, but her opinion of him, as a romantic figure in her life, changes. She grew up with him as a best friend, and when you grow up with a guy as a best friend when you’re a girl, it’s hard not to see yourselves becoming romantically involved. You’re like, “We’ve been best friends. Why don’t we just be together?” That’s what she thought. Maybe she wasn’t really in love with him. Maybe she just thought she was because it felt like the right thing to do. It wasn’t easy, but it was easier than you would think for her to get over the fact that they shouldn’t be together, romantically. She just had an idea in her head of the perfect couple that was Betty and Archie, but in reality, it wasn’t there and it wouldn’t have been as good.” 

anonymous asked:

So I hate used to really ship Klaroline but lately my mind has been breaking on them. Idk I just think Klaus has done too many bad things to her and her friends to give him a second chance. Can you change my mind? Why do you ship them so hard?

Hi, okay so Idk if I’m going to be able to change ur mind because at the end of the day you feel how you feel. A lot of times I’ve doubted my shipping of Klaroline so ur not alone. The thing I wanna tell you before I start is that shipping is supposed to be fun so pls do not agonise over it; if it’s still fun, do it, if not, don’t.

(Warning: Anti D*mon and Dullena) 


*cracks knuckles*

So

  1. Firstly you have to remember when it comes to the issue of Klaroline being problematic, is that that all ships that stem from tvd or TO are inherently problematic. This is because the show its self is problematic. It’s misogynistic, it’s systematically racist and most relationships on the show put the female character at a distinct disadvantage. So very few ships can be seen as healthy or idealistic in the real world. I might say Stelena, Jolaric, and Jalaric are rare examples but even then those ships have their various issues.
  2. Secondly, even if the writers and the CW, in general, did a better job with their shows, you have to remember that this is the vampire genre. It’s meant to be gothic and the characters are meant to be morally dodgy, selfish and do horrifying things. TVD’s mistake was that it could never properly straddle the line between keeping up that gothic theme and appealing to a teen audience (hence the babies, and romanticising of characters that are clearly villains, - cough, cough Damon) so often they put too much emphasis on morality and people being either ‘good’ or ‘bad; even though supposedly good characters like: Matt, Bonnie, Caroline and Elena do bad, selfish things all the time. (More detail in point 3)
  3. Because Klaus was conceptualised when TVD was actually half good and they were still writing a show about vampires; dark, twisted, immoral, seductive, vampires; he hence is a product of that. Klaus is a vampire in the true sense. I don’t believe a person can be a Klaroline shipper unless they accept the fact that Klaus is not a good person. He’s not supposed to be and that’s part of what makes his dynamic with Caroline so interesting. Love, or infatuation/affection, doesn’t change him. Yes, he does things deviant to his ‘cold hearted bastard’ persona. The gifts, deviating from his evil plans for Caroline’s sake, showing mercy, reasoning, barging when he doesn’t have to etc… But none of these things makes him redeemable. This isn’t one of those ships where love makes the person more moral and good. In fact, in Caroline’s case, I’m quite sure it does the opposite - or would do, had they gotten more screen time - Caroline is very in denial about her vampirism. She constantly makes claims about how she’s a ‘good vampire’ (an oxymoron in its self) and is characterised as ‘judgy’ because she demands such a high moral standard from other people around her. And while yes, she is exceptionally good at controlling her urges and at self-discipline (likely a result of  being under Stefan’s self-denying mentoring program and learning about vampirism from someone who detests it because of his own lack of control) Caroline still does terrible things often just because it’s convenient for her or because it’s ‘what it takes to get the job done’. Caroline’s often the most level-headed out of all her friends when it comes to doing something immoral in aid of the greater good, in fact, she’s almost eerily ruthless, especially if said action if in aid of helping one of her friends. (See the slaughtering of the 12 witches for Bonnie’s sake). But Caroline doesn’t see that, she also very scarcely acknowledges how much she loves being a vampire and from day 1, Klaus has been perceptive of how much she does. From when he saves her life, to when he intuits that she doesn’t want the cure and predicts that small town life wouldn’t be enough for her + encouraging her to think outside of the box and use her vampire abilities to get a dress for prom. Even his smug little recital of what Caroline says in 5x11 (’in school, building a life for her self, plans… etc’) shows that he knows that Caroline is just playing herself with her whole ‘mission to be normal’ (e.g: being in school - whic she dropped out of - playing house with Alaric and the babies, being with Stefan, who was always ‘the perfect guy’ in Caroline’s mind, because of the pedestal she put him on, denying herself the true pleasures of vampirism). Furthermore one of the most poignant Klaroline scenes for me is when Klaus is burying the 12 witches and calls Caroline out because not a few hours ago she’s called him a terrible person, because he did terrible things and now here they are staring at the corpses of the witches Caroline killed for Bonnie, while also, inadvertently, enabling an evil, supernatural being to rise from the dead and raise hell. on mankind. For a Klaroline shipper the moment is agonising because Klaus passes up the opportunity to be a shoulder for Caroline to cry on but at the end of the day it was something she needed to hear and quite frankly doesn’t hear enough. As long as you’re a vampire and you feed of human flesh, lie, compel, steal, murder at your own leisure; as long as you’re a witch/human/hunter who enables or condones it, you cannot claim to be ‘good’ whatever that’s supposed to mean.
  4. The most important thing, in my opinion, to remember about Klaroline as a ship is that Klaus’s actions are never presented as okay. Caroline never tolerates anything he does and constantly calls him out on his behaviour, furthermore, the show doesn’t romanticise him or excuse/ignore his behaviour. In contrast characters like Damon, who magically become the hero because it’s the only convenient way to put him with Elena. Elena’s love is supposed to change him and make him a better person but we see no evidence of this on the show, Damon’s his same rapey, abusive self all 8 seasons. But with Klaus, no excuses are made. He’s not supposed to magically turn good, you ask why I ship them so hard? It’s because 9/10 in all their scenes together and in their dynamic in general Caroline always has agency and nearly always has the upper hand, even when she’s dying. She manipulates Klaus into saving her life (”I know you’re in love with me’ ‘I guess we’ll never know’) in fact I’m convinced that Caroline used her A1 drama skills in that last part where Caroline makes those little croaky dying noises and was actually laying it on thick so that Klaus would be moved enough to save her- which he did. Caroline constantly manipulates Klaus and uses her emotional upper hand against him (’Show me I can trust you’ ‘I was promised a date for one of my hybrids’ ‘Show me your compassion’). So the relationship doesn’t just purely consist of Klaus doing horrible thing to Caroline and her friends and getting away with it. It’s far more complicated than that, there’s a power struggle involved and it’s extremely gripping and intriguing.
  5. When it comes down to it, Caroline was Klaus’ first choice, unlike many other TVD relationships, there’s is is centered around Caroline (take dullena for example, even in a show centerd entirely around elena, every bit of their relationship is all about Damon, or he finds a way to make it about him). Like I said Caroline has the agency, the empahsis is on her future, her hopes, her dreams and ultimately he respects her wishes, leaves mystic falls gives her space and waits for her to be ready.

I hope that helps or gives you some perspective. Anyone who wants to chime in please feel free to add something else.

anonymous asked:

What do you think would be the companions ringtone? Who would leave the default one? Would there be someone that would change it way too often? (Mod may choose from which game to pick the companions:)

rain - 

Sera - super obnoxious ringtone, like the iphone quacking one. set to high because she’s always losing her phone and bugging people to call her so she can find the stinking thing. 

Josephine - carefully goes through and sets personal ringtones for everyone she thinks represents them. 

Cole - someone mysteriously sets his ringtone to darude’s sandstorm. he likes it.

Leaf -

Blackwall - he has an old nokia and hasn’t figured out ringtones and still uses the default.

Leliana - her phone is rarely ever off silent, but when it is, she has her favourite dance song as her ringtone.

Varric - he set every single number from the merchant’s guild to a loud air raid siren, so he knows to never answer it. Otherwise he just uses one of the pre-installed ringtones.

Iron Bull - His general ringtone is some classic rock, but if he really likes someone he’ll use a custom dragon roaring sound clip

Dorian - whatever the thedosian equivalent of “party in the USA” is, I’d bet that’s his ringtone. 

Carver -

Solas - has an ancient flip phone that he rarely uses. it’s always on silent most people don’t bother texting him anyways, they know he’ll take days to respond.

Cassandra - she keeps her phone on vibrate as often as possible, but every now and then you’ll hear the beginning notes of Swords & Shields’ theme song, and her face will turn beet red.

Vivienne - her default tone is a just a short kind of bubbly noise, but she has a few personal ringtones for important people. none of them last more than three seconds.

Cullen - likely some terrible country song. he has no shame about it.

You told us about Tristeva, tell us what do you think about Yumalia now

Originally posted by the-world-of-twelve

Alright, for the record, Tristeva was a special case. I don’t have near as much to rant about here, but I will give you what I’ve got. So, this ship. I’m not crazy about it. I totally understand why people are, and if they end up being canon together, I’m sure I will still adore it, but here’s how this goes.

I’ve already explained that I don’t like Amalia for the most part. I tried to like her in the first season. I wanted her to be my favorite, especially since my name is Amelia. But when she wasn’t fighting for their lives, she was being a generally terrible person, and I couldn’t believe this group had to put up with that. That said, in the OVA, she seriously developed as a character and a person. Like, wow. Talk about the huge burdens she took on her shoulders for everyone. Talk about her having to choose between her friends and her kingdom. It was heartbreaking to watch, and I loved every moment.

That said, I don’t know what Yugo saw in her up until now. I honestly feel like he might have just thought she was really pretty when he was younger (I mean hi she barely wore clothes at all) But Yugo is a smart and perceptive kid. I’m willing to take the argument that maybe he saw something in her that I couldn’t. Maybe he saw the potential in her that finally came out in the OVA. I like that idea a lot.

Other than that, the physical age difference is awkward, and I don’t see a way of it working out, but again. If it does, as long as Amalia keeps this change in attitude, I will be so happy for them. Outside of it working out though, I love seeing this ship be teased at for the meaning it holds for Yugo’s character and adding to the things that he’s experienced and learned.

And that’s pretty much all my thoughts on Yumalia.

((Also: “I’ve always wanted to save a princess” okay Yugo rip my heart out again please))

Seokjin - 

“Appa, I need help!” He couldn’t believe his ears at first. Seokjin wished he could have recorded that moment to show you. He sat next to him, his son, and began to explain the math question that was tripping him up. He didn’t want to make the boy upset so he didn’t point it out. Later that day though when you came him he was hugging you and tearing up. For him it was one of the best things to ever happen to him. “He said appa, he finally called me appa! He accepts me…”

Yoongi -

He was relaxing after working hard at the studio when your little girl came up next to him. “Can you help me brush my hair, appa?” He felt his breath catch in his throat and he stared at her innocent eyes. He did anything she wanted, he was in a fogged state as her simple words echoed in his head over and over again. There wasn’t any words to describe what he was feeling. When he told you about it he looked so star struck. “She asked me for help, [Name]. She called me appa, after so long.”

Hoseok -

They were playing in the living room while you were taking a shower when it happened. He was chasing the little girl around the table when she hid under it. “You can’t get me under here, appa! I’m on T!” It wouldn’t register right away as he tugged her out with a triumphant sound. But when it hit, he nearly dropped her. He could feel his heart swelling in his chest and a sting of happy tears in his eyes. “[Name]! [Name]! I’m an appa now! She called me appa!”

Namjoon -

Your son wasn’t terribly young and had been resistant to Namjoon for a very long time. He understood, having a new person come into your tight knit family of two was hard on him. He’d always just been “Namjoon” to the boy. “Appa, have you seen my game? I know I didn’t leave it at Seojun’s…” There was this weightless feeling followed by immense happiness and pride. He’d finally made it to more than “a friend” or “the boyfriend” in his eyes. He would talk to him about it before he talked to you, but when you saw him he was glowing. “He likes me, he finally thinks of me as his parent.”

Jimin -

Your set of twins had been running wild, with Jimin acting just as crazy. You were sitting on the sofa watching him use the little girls as weights laughing at their antics. “Appa, I want down!” One of them cried making both you and Jimin freeze. “No! I wanna go higher, appa! Higher!” He turned to look at you and you could see the tears welling up in his eyes. He was smiling so wide and his heart was racing. He had hoped but never thought the day would come. “I’m their dad, I’m finally their dad!”

Taehyung -

He’d never had a problem with you already having a family. Your little boy made him so happy even when it was time for diaper changes. The little toddler knew his words and knew who you were but he never called Taehyung appa. It was always TaeTae. He was fine with that but when he was feeding him and he heard the garbled “appa” he felt his whole world shift. He kissed your son, his baby boy, and could have danced around the apartment. “Yes, that’s right! I’m your appa!”

Jungkook -

He loved your children all the same. Even when your oldest daughter would slam the door in his face and shout that he wasn’t her dad. When your little boy spilled paint an the rug and almost ate his baby powder. He was shopping with the children when he heard it for the first time. “Appa, can we get this?” She was holding up a small doll and looking timid. He was in awe, Jungkook had finally won her over. When he agreed and she hugged his waist thanking him and calling him appa again he could just feel the ground giving way under him. “She did it, she called me… I have to tell–! YES!” He couldn’t wait to see your face.
