she went through so much shit

I first saw Woodstock running across a turnpike we were turning onto late one dark night in Peachtree Georgia Atlanta. Whilst we were shooting Lawless. He was a stray. 11 weeks old. Oh No we thought. Quickly Go get that dog not even sure it was a dog. Actually.  We stopped the car. It was pitch black literally. I used my phone to light the road in case a car came round the turnpike and couldn’t see me. And malletted me. And I tried to cover some ground but he was fast.  I watched this thing Running towards the highway in the pitch black making good speed towards the cars and lorries and I remember seeing what were its floppy ears bouncing towards the traffic. That dogs had it I thought. I couldn’t make out how big it was what breed it was? Nothing  just those two ears flapping away above a frantic bundle. Hurtling away from us towards impending doom that was for certain. Whatever it was had no road sense and was tearing away. I panicked a little because I couldn’t help it had no name to shout and now it was close to the freeway. I put my fingers to my mouth and I whistled. Loud as I could. The whistle pierced the black. And It stopped the dog dead in its tracks. Then it turned and set eyes on me in one swift movement the ears about faced and the dog decided to run straight at me in the darkness all flashes of teeth and snarling And shrieking. Fuck this I thought that’s not a fkn dog. What am I doing. It ran straight at me and hit me around the legs I couldn’t see but I could hear the distress and I reached down thinking I’m going to get bitten. It was so noisy shrieking. I snatched out expecting to feel teeth and grabbed a fist full of soft neck fur lifted what was actually an incredibly light weight up to my face and shone my phone at it. It was a very small bundle literally sagging from its neck fur with two big brown eyes staring straight into mine. Terrified and utterly quiet. When I got back to the car and sat in my seat he lay on my shoulder and fell asleep. And snored clearly he’d been through a lot. And now the ordeal was seemingly over enough for him to relax. Jessica asked me was he a girl or a boy. Its a boy I said. How do you know. Erm… I can feel his Woodstock. great !!! let’s call him Woodstock!!! And so it was. He was covered in dogshit. Now so was I. And we rode and We took him straight to the pet store to clean him up and buy him well things.., lots of things things dogs need and we walked the aisles the three of us letting him
Choose toys and his lead and his collar. I’ll
Never forget that night. It was wonderful. One minute he was almost dead next terrified. Then picked up by strangers then after He had a power nap in the car, the next he’s walking with his bandy leg John Wayne strut under the strip lighted aisles of this massive pet store happy and playful.
He wore a red bandana that night and from then on and drank religiously from the toilet throughout the night despite having a few bowls of water in the apartment he was every inch a survivor.  He wasnt house broken it didn’t matter we were outdoors mostly and He ate through trailer doors and made many friends and Pnut had him on the lead off set and He became our onset dog  I will always be eternally grateful to Georgia. It gave me the greatest of joys of being a dog owner  And the bestest of friends after Max had passed Woody arrived He was 11 weeks old approx. The first morning we had him. He ate a turd and we chased him to drop it but he gobbled it down because he must have thought we wanted to eat it. So he ate it as fast as he could. We just wanted him to eat some real food. He now had plenty. But there was a survivor in him. That was clear he had had to eat what he could and from then on it was clear he had food issues. But he would never go hungry again. His nickname was Yamaduki. Because he literally yammed down a duki. So Woodstock Yamaduki was his full name. Woody Thomas later Woody two shoes and Wu for short.

Woody came back to the Uk after Jess’s parents kindly looked after him to avoid quarantine they house trained him. He had my tshirt from Warrior. I picked him up from them in California when I shot Dark Knight and thanked them. He hadn’t forgotten me and despite the tireless efforts and hard work that Jessica’s Mum and husband had put into Woody he heard my whistle again and turned and ran at me and didn’t look back. I felt for them but secretly I was very happy that my friend and I were reconnected.  We all had a picnic we jumped into a lake Woody too and then it was clear Woody couldn’t swim and I hauled his ass out of the lake. Dragging him out the shit a second time cemented a pattern. I have hauled him out of rivers and ponds on many occasion since that day such was his love to chase ducks. Especially the Thames.
his rabies titer had cleared he spent a week in quarantine and he became a Londoner.

He was an Angel. And he was my best friend. We went through so much together.
Charlotte worked tirelessly with him to get him through a rough case of separation anxiety. He loved her like his Mum. And when she was pregnant he gaurded her fiercely.

He has been on many sets. Met many crews. Photo shoots premieres made many many friends he was #73 most influential animal in TIME magazine. He beat JAWS. Something we all thought was brilliant. He’s been in peaky blinders. Legend everyone who met him loved him. He didn’t have a bad bone in his body. All he knew was love.

I don’t normally speak out about family and friends but this is an unusual circumstance. Woody affected so many people in his own right so with great respect to his autonomy and as a familiar friendly face to many of you, it is with great great sadness a heavy heart that I inform you that after a very hard and short 6 month battle with an aggressive polymyostisis Woody passed away, two days ago. He was only Age 6. He was Far too young to leave us and We at home are devastated by his loss I am ultimately grateful for his loyal companionship and love and it is of some great comfort that he is no longer suffering. Above all I am completely gutted. the world for me was a better place with him in it and by my side.
To the bestest friend ever. To me and to a family who loved him beyond words and whom he loved without doubt more than I have ever known. Woody was the bestest of journey companions we ever could dream of having. Our souls intertwined forever.

A friend told me

He was special bro, a shining example of man’s best friend. He burnt very very bright and, those that burn very bright sometimes burn half as long.

Thankyou Woody for choosing to find us. We will love you and be with you and you with us forever. Never ever ever forgotten. Your Boy tom xxx I love you beyond words. To the moon and back again and again to
Infinity and beyond. Run with Max now and the Angels. I will see you when I get there.
With all of me I love you. Always Thankyou for
Your love beautiful boy.

The whole ordeal over Korra not being able to Airbend until much later gives me a lot more emotions than I thought it would. 

Airbending basically demands freedom. The ability to no longer feel constrained, and move without limitations. 

Tenzin says in Book 1 that the Avatar’s most difficult element to learn is the one opposite to their personality. For Aang it was Earthbending, and for Korra it was Airbending. 

I think this is mainly because Korra was immediately trained to be the Avatar, whereas Aang was at least given a chance to be normal. He even earned his tattoos before he was informed of this huge responsibility. He was allowed to be free, which is why Earthbending was such a struggle for him: he had to be grounded (lol) for once. 

For better or worse (perhaps more the latter), Korra was told the “good” news when she was only a baby.

There was a post I saw on Tumblr a while ago, which said that A:TLA is about a human learning to be the Avatar. And TLOK is about the Avatar learning to be human. This is definitely the case. While I won’t compare the two Avatars, Korra went through so much shit when she was a teenager, up until she was in her twenties, and I do think this stems from the fact she was brought up as this weapon, not really as a normal person.

Not to mention the only real friend she had was Naga, until she followed Tenzin to Republic City. I mean, this kid has lived her life under protection, with barely anybody to socialise with, and has had it rammed into her head that she is the Avatar from a frighteningly early age. She has been disciplined harshly, been trained thoroughly, and has had many limitations set on her. It’s no surprise Airbending (the ability to be free) is so foreign to her.

To say Korra is the worst Avatar makes no sense to me. I think it’s pretty fucking remarkable she survived, mentally especially, after everything that has been thrusted at her. It gives the ending of Book 3 a much sweeter note. Korra walks into another world, another life, holding onto a girl who has never once shown her limits. Who literally makes her free.

just thinking about the chamber of secrets makes me so emo because ginny went through so much at such a young age. she fought voldemort’s possession for almost a whole year without telling anyone, a feat that even most adults wouldn’t have been able to endure. rather than letting this hang over the rest of her life, she moved forward. ginny is living proof within the series that you can suffer such horrific trauma but still come out okay. she became one of the most powerful witches in the series. she remained kind to those who were less popular than her but took no shit. hell, she told off harry effing potter. she remained harry’s “best source of comfort” even when she knew he was going to break up with her rather than breaking up with him beforehand. when he broke up with her, she didn’t try to refute it because she knew it was something he had to do. she restarted the DA while hogwarts was taken over by death eaters who used the cruciatus curse on those in detention. she fought for the cause the golden trio represented despite not knowing their whereabouts or if they were even alive. this list could go on and on.

anyways, ginny weasley is so important and deserves better than the movies and a lot of the fandom.

adrienne de lafayette: the woman, the icon, the legacy
  • was only FOURTEEN when she married sixteen year old, awakward, lanky, redheaded fuckboy lafayette
  • (her mom loved laf but hated them together so she almost didn’t let them marry, didn’t let them sleep in the same room on their weddng night, and sent people with them on outings well into adulthood)
  • her dumbass husband ran off to america to fight in a war without telling anyone including his wife, so nice job on that one gilbert
  • her first daughter henriette fucking DIED as an infant, when laf was still in america. so adrienne dealt with that without her husband even being there
  • she was actually without her husband for quite a while come to think of it. like around 4 years total
  • handled their family’s finances on her own, because she was a fierce and brilliant woman
  • popped out four (4) of laf’s weird lookin kids
  • joined an abolitionist society along with her husband and purchased a cinnamon plantation with the sole purpose of freeing the slaves on the land
  •  had to deal with her husband doing stupid things like naming their child after general george washington and changing their family motto to “why not?”
  • and then, to everyone’s surprise and shock, her husband took up another post during the french revolution and went away for five months only to get sent to jail
  • she and her daughters were put on house arrest
  • oh and also a bunch of her family and friends had just been beheaded
  • while on house arrest, she sent letters to a whole shitton fuckton of people to try and get her husband out of an austrian prison and back to france
  • yeah she didn’t hear from laf for like two years while he was in prison because no one would let him write to her
  • smart smart woman burned any document or letter that could get laf in trouble 
  • anyway she finally got to this prison with her daughters except they would let laf out so she was like “fuck you and fuck your rules if he can’t come out i’m coming in”
  • LITERALLY ALLOWED HERSELF TO BE IMPRISONED FOR TWO FUCKING YEARS BECAUSE SHE LOVED HER HUSBAND THAT MUCH
  • (did i mention he cheated on her? twice? and she still went through all this shit and never had a bad thought about him :)))))))))
  • oh and! surprise! she got lead poisoning from the dirty water in the prison ah what a life
  • so they get out of prison and do you know what she does? she regains all their property, all their money, and gets them out of 200,000 livres worth of debt, because she was a badass
  • the hilarious end to her story is that she died a very painful death when she was 48 due to the lead poisoning she got n the prison
  • her last words ever spoken were to laf. and do you know what she said? “i am entirely yours”
  • anyway i’m dead inside and this woman deserves a bajillion dollars and a halo
SKAM S04E07 Clip 4 - Someone is attacking us

GIRL: …they used 300 000 on a bus and now they’ve split up.

GIRL2: I totally agree. Like, if the whole school saw my chats, I would fucking die. I got on Facebook and went through my chats to see how much shit I’ve talked about people and there’s so fucking much!

GIRL3: You have to be extremely careful about what you write.

VILDE: How many times have you called her now?

INGRID: Probably a hundred.

VILDE: You’ll use up your data.

INGRID: No, I have this data plan where everything is included.

EVA: Is she answering?

INGRID: No.

GIRL4: Is she active on Facebook?

VILDE: She was earlier, but not now.

GIRL4: Because you sent her a message on Facebook, didn’t you?

INGRID: Yeah, lots. She hasn’t seen..

VILDE: She hasn’t seen them.

INGRID: No.

GIRL4: Have you tried calling her parents?

INGRID: No, I haven’t, but maybe I should go over to her place later today.

GIRL4: That’s a good idea.

SANA: What’s up?

INGRID: We can’t get ahold of Sara.

VILDE: She’s just embarrassed people have seen all the shit she’s written about people.

EVA: Are we really sure it actually was Sara writing all those things?

GIRL4: I don’t know about everything, but that thing about how she hoped Iselinn would switch schools.. She wrote that to me too.

GIRL5: And she wrote the thing about Olivia being pedo to me too.

GIRL4: Did someone hack our account?

EVA: Fuck, how creepy.

VILDE: It’s creepy that it has been published, but I think it’s even more creepy that we have a bus boss who has written so much whit about people on the bus.

EVA: I’m ready to quit the bus. I can’t be bothered with this drama.

INGRID: No, hello girls, it’s so fucking important that we don’t let this ruin us. There’s someone attacking us and then we have to stand together as one bus.

GIRL4: Yeah, but it’s really serious to share those chats. Isn’t that illegal or something?

[TALKING OVER EACH OTHER]

ISAK: Is there any drama?

SANA: Yeah..

ISAK: I heard something about Sara posting some shit about the girls on Instagram.

SANA: Yeah, it’s.. Believe me, you don’t want to know.

ISAK: That I don’t fucking want. But are you ready for the mock exam?

SANA: Yeah! You too?

ISAK: I’m Stephen Hawking on Red Bull are you crazy? Yeah! Talk to you later.

[DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT FOR GOOD]

can we talk about ms. jade thirlwall for a minute? the girl who since she was little has been working her ass off to be a singer/performer? the one who would work any gig cause all she wanted to do was perform? the one who went through so much shit growing up and found solace in music? the one who tried out for xfactor twice and was rejected twice? the one who still had the courage to audition for the third time and was so hesitant to be part of a group? look at where she is now…a brit winner!! i am so beyond happy for her. our little jeed has come so far!!!

I went through so much stress and periods of strife. I would have panic attacks… I literally always had a stomach ache. And I was a control freak and I couldn’t anticipate what was going to happen in a given situation, so I’d be like, ’Maybe I’m going to get sick’… It’s kind of remarkable. I just grew out of it, but that’s not to say I don’t get worried.

“Taehyung, please pretend to be my boyfriend over the course of the next two weeks cuz my sister and her boyfriend are gonna come and I don’t wanna be teased.” I said all in one breath, causing me to breathe in heavily, evoking a smile on Taehyung’s face. “What do I get out of that?” he laughed as he took a sip of his latte. “You get to spend time with me?” “I spend time with you everyday… we like live together…” “Please.” I said, dragging it out so much that it was almost me being cute. “Ugh, fine. But I’m taking the lead on this mission.” he said as he ruffled my hair and placed a very much platonic kiss on my forehead.


“___! I haven’t seen you in ages, baby sister!” my sister screamed when I opened my apartment door. “Nice to see you too.” I laughed as I hugged her, when I pulled away I awkwardly greeted her boyfriend, we weren’t exactly close. “So, any boyfriend? Or are you still single as always?” she joked, causing me to roll my eyes. “Babe! Who is it?” Taehyung suddenly called, I had forgotten that we just agreed to pretend we were dating. “Babe?” my sister asked, causing me to laugh and walk towards Taehyung, who was sitting on the sofa in the living room. “Babe, this is my sister and her boyfriend.” I smiled at him as I introduced the two strangers to him. “Nice to meet the both of you, I’m Taehyung, ___’s boyfriend.”

“You never told me you got a boyfriend!” she screamed as she jumped up and down. “It was a low-key thing, we haven’t told many people.” I laughed. “Yeah, we’re keeping this between the few people we have told.” Taehyung chuckled as he walked over to me and placed a kiss on the top of my head, nuzzling me afterwards. “I’m so glad you finally have someone!” “Me too.” I smiled as I wrapped my arms around my ‘boyfriend’.

“You guys should kiss right now. It would be so romantic!” my sister squealed, causing Taehyung and I to awkwardly look at each other, we knew it was inevitable but so soon? I released by wrap around him and he rubbed the back of his neck. The next thing she said didn’t help with awkwardness, “We should go on a double date some time! I mean we’re staying here anyway so why not spend some more quality time together?” she spoke, once again, jumping up and down. “Sure, maybe later this week? We’re a bit busy with school work right now…” Taehyung lied. “That’s fine! As long as it happens! But you guys still need to kiss!” she squealed as she anticipated the moment. Taehyung, suddenly bursting with energy, turned to me, pulled me in and placed his lips against mine. I must say it was probably one of the best kisses of my life.


“Fuck, what are we supposed to do? Go on this stupid double date and risk being seen?” I asked as I paced around the small gap between the two shelves in the uni library. “Well people might just assume that we’re just friends, they know we’re close.” he replied, raising his head from his book. “But what if they don’t? And we’re gonna have to act all coupley for my sister.” I said, sighing in frustration as I threw myself onto the chair opposite my ‘boyfriend’. “I say go for it, let’s live a little.”


“I’m so excited for our lunch date! I know the perfect place! I used to go there all the time!” my sister said as she wrapped her arm around her boyfriend’s. “We used to go there all the time.” he corrected her as he placed a kiss on her forehead. “Sure, I’m up for it. As long as my cute ass girlfriend over here is.” Taehyung laughed as he wrapped his arm around my waist. “Of course I am.” I said, smiling, as I tiptoed slightly to place a kiss on his left cheek. “You two are the cutest!” my sister squealed for the nth time since she appeared at my house.


“I say when we get home we mess around.” Taehyung whispered into my ear as the food was being served by the sleazy looking waiter. “What the fuck do you mean?” I whispered back, my shock being slightly evident in my voice. “I mean, let’s make sex noises to like pretend we’re, you know; like why not have fun when we’re both just pretending anyway?” “Ugh, I hate the shit you drag me into.”

“What are you two lovebirds talking about?” my sister asked as she shoved a spoonful of food into her mouth. “You know, stuff. Couple stuff.” “Like?” “We’re planning our next date.” “Already? This one just got started! You two are eager!” she laughed as she turned her attention to her boyfriend. “You’re so bad at lying, ___.” Taehyung muttered before having a bite of my food. “You’re not much better, babe.” I whispered back, emphasising the ‘babe’ just to mess around.


Later that night, Taehyung and I went through with our plans. We started off slow and never become really loud but we definitely sounded like we were sinning but the trick was, play a video game with your best friend on silent. “This is so fun.” he laughed as tried to beat me at this round of Mortal Kombat. The more we played, the more sexual things sounded to others. We had to try so hard to hold back our laughter in between, I was laughing so hard that I was flat on my back in tears. Taehyung quickly joining my side with laughter. Suddenly, in the midst of our laughing fit, we heard a knock at the door, “Hey, kids, I know you’re in love but can you guys keep it down a bit?” “Oh my God…” I whispered to Taehyung as I turned to hold his body out of embarrassment. “I’m sorry, we’ll keep it down.” Taehyung voiced as he turned to wrap his arm around me.

“Why did you get so embarrassed, babe?” he smirked as he lifted himself onto his right elbow. “I didn’t expect her to come and say that!” I said, letting go of Taehyung and covering my red face. “Aww, my baby is embarrassed.” he chuckled as he placed a kiss on my forehead. “Stop that!” “We’re dating!” “Ugh, at this rate I might actually fall for you!” I joked but subconsciously knew that it was definitely possible. “I wish you would!” he laughed back at me.


“Sorry about last night.” Taehyung chuckled as he entered the kitchen the next morning. “Don’t worry about it, you two are still full of energy and aren’t drained from work life.” my sister chuckled as she poured in some milk to her cereal. “Well, I’m taking ___ on a breakfast date so don’t wait around for us and enjoy your time with your boyfriend.” Taehyung smiled as he poured himself a glass of water and left to go back to me.

“I told your sister that we’re going on a breakfast date so now we have to go.” Taehyung threw at me as he walked back into my room. “You what?” I laughed in complete disbelief. “Yeah, let’s go to that cafe that you love, my treat, babe.”


“You really didn’t have to do this, we could’ve just had McDonald’s.” I laughed as I was being handed my favourite breakfast item from the menu. “This is the least I could do.” “For what?” “For you, my best friend and girlfriend.” he chuckled as he was handed his latte. “You haven’t managed to fall for me, have you?” I said, half-joking, half-hopeful. “What if I did? What would you do about it?” he answered, turning it back onto me. “Probably date you, why not live a little?” I said, using his previous words. “Then why don’t we do exactly that.” he smirked. “What? Date? You’re joking.” I laughed as I took a sip from my own coffee. “Nope, not at all. I want to be with you, for real. It’s been fun pretending and I’m already comfortable around you, probably more than your sister is around her boyfriend.” “Fine, let’s live a little.”

  • What she says: I'm ok.
  • What she really means: I don't understand why B.A.P are so underrated? Did you know that they went through so much shit because of their shit crap company? Did you know that the members went through crap like depression and extreme anxiety and are, on top of that, so freaking young? Yet they came back together and are giving it their all to hang onto their dreams. Did you know that their leader Yongguk writes most of their songs which, by the way, address important social issues? B.A.P are by far one of the most talented kpop boy group out there and yet people keep sleeping on them, jfc.

Alright I’m pissed. The Britney Ever After biopic on lifetime is awful. I use to be a huge fan when I was younger and just kinda grew out of it then back in. I love Britney Spears. She has been through some shit. It was a joke then but now it’s not. It shouldn’t have ever been. She went through a really rough time. Lifetime made this movie into a mess. The portrayed her as a psychopath. She was mentally unstable. Not psychotic. I know Britney didn’t sign off on this movie so they had to be careful about things they did but my god they turned her life into a joke. I respect Britney so much more just for this because she has chosen to just ignore this bullshit. I’m so disappointed.

Negan x Reader

It had been almost a year since all this shit went down. But this so-called ‘shit’ wasn’t the worst of your problems, your husband was. You were currently walking through the woods and your husband was yelling at you for getting you both lost.

“Stupid fuck women” He was marching in front of you, your eyes followed his feet. He wasn’t that much taller than you and you were short. But he was broad and he could break you like a twig, not like he hasn’t tried too.

“I-I think were are l-lost again…” You mumbled and trailed off. He stopped and he put his back straight. You knew what was coming but you were just trying to help.

“Are you trying to say-” he stopped to turn around and face you. “THAT I…” He started to point at his chest “….HAVE GOT US…” He waved his hand up in the air at the word ‘us’ “…LOST?!” You remained quiet, knowing if you answered or didn’t answer you were in trouble either way. That’s when you closed your eyes hard and heard the crunching of the leafs under his boots getting louder and louder. You were so concentrated on how each footstep sounded, the first hit knocked you to the ground. You let out a cry holding onto your cheek and he hit you again making the back of your head hit the tree behind you.

From a distance, you thought you heard someone say ‘the fuck’ but you thought that was your imagination wishing for someone to come along and save you. Just as your husband was about to hit you again you saw a baseball bat hit the side of his ribs and he fell sideways onto the ground.

“You little fucker! Think it’s fun to beat women that can’t even overpower you.” He put the baseball bat down and kicked him repeatedly. “Does it make you feel strong? YOU FUCKING ASS, FUCKER!” he bent down to take his baseball bat to hit him again.

Can we please admire Touka’s strength after Ayato left? She literally raised him, he was way younger than her when Arata left. She took care of him, carried him on her back so he wouldn’t have to walk, probably hunted some humans for him to eat because he was too little to even kill a fly. She held him during chilly nights when there was no bed and forced on a smile to make him feel safe even if she was breaking inside. She was his older sister but at the same time she fulfilled the role of a mother, and that’s something impossible to forget. I also had to take care of my nieces many times and although I know they’re not my children, I know they’re like little siblings more than my very own kids, but sometimes it feels like it. Touka looked a lot like Hikari so imagine how it is for Ayato to look at her, even if he was very young when his mom died. To have all those memories of her taking care of him, working her ass off so he would have a place to sleep, something to eat, someone to hold, a smile when he missed daddy… Touka was extremely brave to let him go and still carry on with her life with a smile. I wouldn’t be able to keep going knowing that he’s out there, on his own, alone, and not needing her at all. What shocks me the most is that Kaneki also left, Hinami too, and she never said: “I had enough of this shit, always waiting for people who leave me behind, I had enough with Ayato, I’m not gonna do this anymore”… she never did that, she had faith that he would come back, and I think a part of her always knew that Ayato would come back to her as well. I just have so much respect for Touka as a person, she went through a lot of shit, and she still tried to move on and keep studying and not give up in life. She’s an inspiration. 

I JUST NOTICED SOMETHING
I’ve always wondered how the hell Layton knew so much about Clive just by looking at the Scotland Yard files.
And then I realized
“A famous London newspaper“ most likely refers to the Times, which Layton is often seen reading; it’s likely that he’s reading every single article every day.
At some point Clive worked at the Times as a reporter, meaning that his name was probably printed down at least once, in whatever context, as someone working there.
Ok this alone wouldn’t make sense at all since Layton didn’t even know what his name was.
Well, let’s talk about Lady Dove.
She must have been incredibly wealthy. And judging by the people, it was probably a big thing that there was literally only one heir for all that money, and I bet they mentioned his name at least once in the newspapers, of course only his new name though, probably not even a photo, bc who wants to be interviewed after his mother died
So how the friggedy frig did he connect this?
First; he must have had at least a little suspicion.
He didn’t know Dimitri too well obviously (since a fake moustache was enough to hide his identity) but it’s pretty damn clear that he didn’t have reasons to set this fake Layton shit up, that there was no way he could have gathered enough money to even put together the fake time machine from the opening scene, and that things around this mafia just didnt add up. He knew there was someone else behind this; if you consider that Bill Hawks couldn’t do shit for Dimitri’s plan to build a working time machine, personal hatred aside.
I don’t know where it started, or from which point on he worked his way to the solution, but yeah.
The files probably just contained a list of victims, and he probably looked at them in the first place because he suspected someone seeking revenge for what happened, since there was no damn reason to kidnap Bill Hawks this way if not for personal reasons.
In the unwound future, it says that ten people died, and that only one house next to the lab building was damaged. Knowing that this one was the house of Clive’s parents, we can assume that next to Claire, and Clive’s parents, the other seven victims were lab workers/unfortunally in the building.
That means: He could see exactly who Clive parents were, since they probably had the same last name and were, judging by the fact that no other family was affected, the only people who he could possibly belong to.
Now knowing that he had a possible culprit (Clive didn’t change that much lets be real), he went through scenarios how one could have done such a thing. This person would have had to have the power to set this up. And so he came to the conclusion that this person had to own a SHIT TON of money.
He then probably remembered the death of Constance Dove and how it was a big thing that she gave everything to just her adopted son.
Adopted son
Incredible amount of money
Around 18 when she died
We know Layton’s memory, so it’s possible that he actually remembered seeing Clive’s name in the Times after Constance Dove died and then seeing his name again as someone working there; he probably found it unusual to take a part time job if you’re as wealthy as the heir of Lady Dove.
So he could easily draw the line: The boy’s name was Clive. His parents died in the fire caused by the explosion, and his age matched. He was adopted by Constance Dove, who died five years later, leaving only him as the heir of her money, making him really rich (and without people who would mind if he disappeared into the void). He, for some reason, also worked at the Times at some point, which doesn’t make that much sense.
He had his culprit: He had a personal reason to hate hawks, he had the recources to resarch who was responsible for the death of his parents and enough money to set up fake London, and he went through enough shit to consider this a good way of bringing his point across.
And: He concluded this at the time he realized the underground London was a hoax.
You may wonder how he came to the point where he could safely assume that London was a fake. Here are just a few reasons stated casually as a side note during the first half of the game:
1. It’s always hot and even at the waterside, the air feels heavy; also indicated by how the plants at the Thames look a little like from a swamp. The clima is tropic and there is no wind.
2. The sky is always foggy, concealing what’s underneath.
3. They both feel dizzy after traveling between the “times“; the quick change of air pressure is causing them to react like this.
4. The many empty areas and areas still in construction. It doesn’t make sense to build new things in the middle of a nearly deserted area.
5. The media is also controlled by the mafia. A man states that the Times wouldn’t write about anything relevant anymore.
6. People having no clue about where they are and why they are here after being hired as construction workers
7. The damn tower of the clock shop IS AS HIGH AS THE CEILING
All of these made it highly plausible that the mastermind was hiding in close proximity to guide them through this, leaving only one more possible culprit: Future Luke, who could of course not be who he claimed to be.
A few more reasons that probably added to the Professor’s suspicion about him:
-He didn’t recognize Flora at first
-He told the Professor that the Casino was run by the mafia, and the guy at the entrance would only let people with a casino membership pass. Why would Future Luke have a casino membership at the mafia casino, and why meet Layton there?
-To have them be attacked by the mafia of course. Clive hired Bostro and Bostro was the one initiating the attack (and slapping him across the room which is suddenly 1000% more funny to me (“just attack us and when I backtalk, just hit me“ “are you sure“ “yes just smack me across the room“)). This was supposed to make Layton trust “future Luke“ by being attacked in an enviroment where Clive could easily help and appear trustworthy (never wondered where he got the coins from? This is a casino! These things equal money! They dont just stand around in buckets)
-Clive actually dropped out his roll often enough (in the pagoda for example when talking to the two mafia guys that look like chelmey and barton).
-Clive was actually refered to as “young master“ by accident which is of course not suspicious at all

Yeah so here is the longest analysis I’ve ever written :))):

Thoughts on What's Wrong

I don’t know I’ve been thinking about What’s Wrong lately and just listening to the lyrics, this was before I read the recent interview that Lynn did with Billboard, and after reading it I’ve decided to post this thing I’ve had in my drafts since the single came out.

I love the new song and video and all but I can’t help but just listen to the lyrics and notice how much pain lies within them. I know Lynn has been going through a lot of shit but these lyrics, it makes me sad to know that she went through so much pain just to write these lyrics, no one has been talking about this and I feel it’s been very overlooked like no one is actually paying attention to the lyrics; it’s so obvious she has been hurting. Since Heaven and What’s Wrong came out feel this album is going to sound like more of a cry for help. I don’t know it just makes me so sad to hear the pain she’s been through, I know we’ve all been through shit but I don’t know, just some thoughts I’ve had.

bismuth-bitch  asked:

Which character(s) are you tired of seeing?🌸

Honestly, Peridot and Lapis. I fucking LOVE Peridot so so so so sos so much, but she’s not… Peridot… anymore. She’s not. She’s devolved so far from what she was. She’s literally lost all personality, all character, and just turned into some kind of weird vessel that only exists for shitty comic relief.
And yes, she had her redemption arc, she changed her views, she went through some shit, but its not possible to fundamentally change someone as a person. She wouldn’t just stop being snarky, she would stop being fucking INTELLIGENT especially. She somehow became really dumb despite boasting about her superior intellectual superiority not 2 seasons ago.
Peridot used to be my favourite character, and now she’s a mess. She’s just some neon blob that vaguely resembles Peridot and has her voice. Like, go back and watch her arc, from Friend Ship to Message Recieved and then watch whichever episode was her most recent. They’re 2 entirely different characters, she doesn’t act like herself any more.

And also, honestly… Steven. I’m sick of seeing Steven fucking Uwuniverse because he drives me nuts. Everything he does is so redundant. He’s constantly going on about how he’s not his mother and then JK YES I AM. He’s a selfish asshole too, he leaves Bismuth bubbled despite openly stating that Rose bubbling her was wrong. He leaves Lars on Homeworld (as far as we know), he left the Rubies in space to die, he left Malachite under the ocean not really trying too hard to find her at all.
Plus, he’s really really overpowered and just boring now. He’s boring and annoying and just a little turd of a child.

It’s BS to trash this season because it doesn’t go your way.

 Two things I’ve noticed, and they are certainly related…

1- People have always put Sana on a pedestal. Her fans don’t acknowledge that she’s a flawed character just like the others and that she’s got to face her fears and learn from her mistakes. People are saying « she so pure/nice/an angel/doesn’t deserve this » but no one saying she played a part in this mess because she’s not communicating with her friends. She thinks she can handle everything on her own and doesn’t confide in people. She doesn’t want to appear weak. I’m not saying she’s the reason for what’s happening. I’m saying that she let the situation with the girls get worse by not expressing her feelings. Why didn’t she confide to Noora about Yousef ? Why not talk to Vilde or Sara about the russbus situation? In yesterday episode, we saw her almost reply to the chat discussion. Why didn’t she ? Why keep it all inside and alienate herself from her friends ?

Being fake is a recurrent theme in Skam. All Skam’s main characters were fake in their own way. And this season Sana is also fake. Yes, she’s a badass. She’s assertive and doesn’t hesitate to express her points of view on various subjects. But what about her personal feelings ?  People complain about the girls not listening to Sana, but did she try to talk to them ? Sana is a spectactor. She’s always listening, watching but never unload like a Vilde or a Noora. And when she feels the need to she steps in to save the day. She always has this superior attitude, like a mother watching and educating her children. When you don’t express your frustration, disappointment, fear or anxiety, people start to think you’re a rock and they tend to lean on you so much they forget you have your own shit to deal with. Does it make the girls bad friends ? Not really, and especially not when they asked Sana several time what’s going on with her and she didn’t answer them and choose to avoid them. 

Why is Sana like this ? It might come from the bullying she went through in her previous school, or maybe she’s always been like that. I believe the point of this season is for Sana to learn how to stop the pretense : she doesn’t always need to be strong, she can lean on her friends.

2- I’m wondering if the Sana brigade really love the character for what she is or if they just want her to be an irreproachable representation of a muslim girl. They want the show to educate people on Islam but guys, Skam isn’t a sociology documentary. Skam is a tv show about teenagers learning to grow up. I can understand they were delighted to see a muslim girl on tv, they felt they could identify with her. But to be this angry because the story isn’t the one they expected ???

Things they’re criticizing (slow development, unanswered questions…) were already in the previous seasons. That’s Skam’s trademark ! They’re doing Sana a disservice by not appreciating her character’s development as a whole and only wanting to focus on her religion. Of course Sana is muslim and it’s an important part of her but it’s not everything. Why every complain is about Islam and muslim representation ? Sana is also a teenager, she has concerns such as fitting at school, falling in love etc. Do we need to cry because we didn’t get a Ramadan scene yesterday? Of course it’d be great to have this scene, it would add realism to the show. But if we don’t get it, it will not be the end of the world. I’ve read things like « this season is about us » or « this season should represent muslims this way or that way ». Really ? I guess I didn’t know. I thought Skam season 4 was about SANA…

I’m an african-french woman and here there’s almost no POC representation on tv. I think once a year there’s a movie made for tv about POC and their struggles. That about it. It’s frustrating and disheartening but when I watch a show with black people I don’t expect to identify with them. I just follow the storyline and the characters progression. I don’t expect the writer to educate people on our ways of life and beliefs. And I don’t expect the show to change the way the world sees us!

REQUEST: Sick Week [DedSec/Reader]

Lol, I’ll try not to get sick. No guarantees though. The weather in New York suddenly got cooler, and I tend to get sick with the radical changes in temperature/weather conditions. It sucks. :P I tried to treat all the characters as equals… but I am very biased and uninspired for some of these. I won’t lie.

I’ll be the Jane to your Tarzan. (Owen Grady x Reader)

Original Request: Hi, can you write a Owen x reader where she’s the low-key, little shy, smart, physically average type of girl. She works at the paddock but Owen never really noticed her and she’s seen him being a womanizer. Still she can’t help but has a big crush on him (more because of his personnality and alpha work side). Fluff ending please. Thank you <3

Warnings: None, shy reader maybe, swearing and a little arguing before the big man comes to the rescue? I kept it short, just because no one likes an arguing cowbag

Hope you love it sweetie! It’s a lot shorter than I would’ve liked, but I know how you’ve waited. If you want, just mention and I’ll do a longer Part II!

anonymous asked:

if you're still doing the pairing thing, hollstein and supercorp!

Hollstein
proposes - Both. It’s their anniversary and they’ve both been too busy trying to hide the surprise to notice the other acting wierd. At the end of their extravagant dinner, they both get down on one knee and pull their mothers’ wedding rings out.

shops for groceries - Laura. Carm never had to worry about shopping before, and just finds the whole thing tedious.

kills the spiders - Laura. Carm doesn’t really care one way or another about spiders, but Laura definitely wants them all gone.

comes home drunk at 3am - Carm. Laura’s not much of a drinker, but does love the cuddly mess Carm becomes after a night out.

remembers to feed the fish - Laura. The only pet her dad let her have as a kid was a fish, so she’s very good at taking care of it.

initiates duets - Laura. She likes to sing while they (mostly just her) clean their place.

falls asleep first - Carm. She’s a genuinely more tired person, and Laura takes a while to calm down once she’s in bed.

plans spontaneous trips - Carm. She’s use to the lavish lifestyle, and likes to take Laura to see all the places she’s been.

wakes the other up at 3am demanding pancakes - Laura. Usually when she stays up to binge watch something. Carm’s a surprisingly good cook, and pancakes take the least amount of time to cook.

sends the other unsolicited nudes - Carm 100%. Especially when she knows Laura is about to start a class, or has a meeting. She’s a giant tease, but definitely makes up for it later.

brags about knowing karate even though they never made it past yellow belt - Laura. She was kicked out of karate class after a week because she punched a boy for saying girls were weak.

comes to a complete halt outside bakeries/candy shops - Laura. One thing that never changes about her is her sweet tooth.

blows sarcastic kisses after doing ridiculous shit - Carm. There’s almost nothing she does that doesn’t have some sort of sarcastic part to it.

killed the guy (also, which hid the body) - Carm killed the guy, and had to hide the body.

wears the least clothing around the house - Carm. She likes to be in as little as possible at all times. Laura can easily be convinced to join her in her lack of clothing.

has icky sentimental moments for no apparent reason - Carm. She’s lived such a long time, but nothing she’s ever felt compares to her feelings for Laura, and sometimes her sappy heart can’t take it.

Supercorp
proposes - Lena. She studies at the DEO for months to be able to ask Kara four simple words in her native tongue, and when she does, neither of them can hold back their tears.

shops for groceries - Kara. Mostly because she eats so much, she feels like it’s her job to stock their kitchen.

kills the spiders - Kara. Lena HATES spiders, and has to leave the room until Kara can get rid of the creatures. Though Kara usually just puts them outside somewhere.

comes home drunk at 3am - Lena. Particularly hard nights at the office include a bottle of wine. She’s not completely plastered when she gets home, but close to it.

remembers to feed the fish - Kara. Lena would do it, but Kara likes to talk to the fish about her day while she feeds them.

initiates duets - Kara. Though Lena jumps in fairly quickly.

falls asleep first - Lena. Kara doesn’t need as much sleep, and she’s learned that Lena will stay up much later than she should if someone doesn’t reminder her to go to bed.

plans spontaneous trips - Lena. She loves traveling, and she loves spoiling Kara with weekends away form the city.

wakes the other up at 3am demanding pancakes - Lena. This only happens when she comes home drunk. Lena’s tried to make them by herself, but after one failed attempt that led to their kitchen being filled with smoke, she’s learned to just wake Kara up.

sends the other unsolicited nudes - Lena. She loves the flustered call she gets from Kara after sending one.

brags about knowing karate even though they never made it past yellow belt - Kara. Jeremiah and Eliza took her to a class when she first got to earth, but quickly learned that wasn’t a good idea when she took down the karate instructor who was easily three times her size.

comes to a complete halt outside bakeries/candy shops - Kara. Lena enjoys sweets too, but Kara’s heightened senses just make everything smell and look so much better.

blows sarcastic kisses after doing ridiculous shit - Neither. They’re both too in love and sappy to be sarcastic with their kisses.

killed the guy (also, which hid the body) - Lena killed the guy, but to be fair he did try to kill her first. Kara hid the body then went right home to give Lena the love she deserves.

wears the least clothing around the house - Lena. She likes to lounge in just a big t-shirt while Kara opts for sweats.

has icky sentimental moments for no apparent reason - Both. They’ve both been through so much, sometimes it’s hard to believe they actually found and get to be with the love of their lives.
