she's actually perfection though

Woman names her daughter after goddesses from two different pantheons, worse, the goddesses have completely opposing spheres of influence. Both of them take an interest in the kid. Then their pantheons get involved.

I paused The Handmaid’s Tale for this. You better be happy.


Nemain Bastet was born at noon on a Tuesday. An auspicious start, if you asked her mother Lisa, who was of the idea that being born during the work week meant you’d be a hard worker yourself. Some might agree.

However, if you asked Tyr, you’d have been interrupting his weekly game of chess against Saraswati with the sound of a squalling newborn and he’d have lost his focus. Loki may be a cheat but even he knew not to mess with the old god’s favorite pastime (especially after the man lost his better hand to the trickster’s wolfish son).

With this is mind, you should also know that then naming your child after a pair of goddesses so wildly different its laughable is a large no-no. Any traditional witch worth their salt is aware of this. Even modern witches, with their silly wands and lack of glorifying Ostara, know better.

Lisa, being neither a traditional or modern witch (and the fact she isn’t of any denomination), does not know this.

Thus, it stands to reason, neither goddess should even give the screaming a baby a second look.

And yet.

"things you said when you were crying" for Kabby (bonus point if Kane is the one crying) :)

[A/N: Combined this with 18 since they kind of seemed to go hand in hand storywise. Also, this one makes the most sense if you read the preceding one.]

when you thought i was asleep | after we kissed | when you were drunk | that made me feel like shit

things you said when you were scared and crying

Somehow, everything goes wrong, but they still succeed.

He’s still alive.

He’s exhilarated and exhausted as he exits the reactor room. There’s an angry burn on across his arm, a throb in his chest that he thinks is a cracked rib or five, a half dozen cuts all over his body, a gash on his head that won’t stop bleeding - but he’s alive.

The only thing he can think as he walks down the hall is Abby, Abby, Abby - her name a mantra that pushes him forward, keeps him moving one foot in front of the other.

He rounds the corner, hand out against the wall for support, and feels the blood drain from his face.

Propped against the wall of the hallway is Abby, pale and unmoving. The hallway is dimly lit, but he can see  clothes are covered with blood - so much of it that it’s starting to gather on the ground around her. Bellamy is leaning over her, his head tipped low.

He can’t breathe. He can’t speak. He thinks his heart has stopped beating. He thinks his lungs must no longer work. The world slows and the colors bleed into black around him. He finds himself unable to move; wonders if he’ll spend the rest of his life in this room, trapped in this moment.

Bellamy lifts his head. Looks at him for a breath, eyes wide with surprise. Then, relief.  

“You’re alive.”

At Bellamy’s words, Abby’s chest rises slightly; Marcus watches as she lifts her head a fraction from the wall to meet his eyes.

The world comes screaming back into color, into motion, into noise. His lungs ache with the force of the breath he takes in and his heart jumps into his throat, strangling the next word he tries to get out.

“Abby.”

probably my fave ((and wildest)) personal theory is that narcissa black wasn’t actually cygnus’ daughter and was possibly half-blood instead and the reason why it’s so wild it’s bc it holds up so well??? i mean, except for the part where druella bangs a muggle, but hear me out, im Pretty sure that, genetically speaking, it’s impossible for a couple to have 3 different children with 3 different hair colors if one of the parents have black hair, and the only way for andromeda and bella to have brown and black hair respectively is if their parents also had brown and black hair, and Then you remember that narcissa never Actually joined the death eaters even though she was a near perfect candidate for them, and Then you remember that she was pretty key in voldemort’s defeat, even tho he Would win the war right there and guarantee her bloodline would be pure forever, which was arguably what she’d wanted since childhood, and Then you remember she lied to voldemort’s face and got away with it, meaning she’s most likely one of the most most powerful occlumens in the World, but what secret could she have that was So Horrible that she’d have to become that proficient at keeping it hidden forever I Mean

this has probably been mentioned 2932288 times already but Lana did the Young!Regina voice thing again when she said Robin’s name in the last scene and it still hit me just as hard as the first time

Previous Chapter

Chapter 15

As I snuggled into a soft leather seat in the richly appointed private jet the following morning, I thanked the gods for allowing me a relatively easy time in rounding up Georgina and the multitude of luggage needed for our trip to Los Angeles. The previous night had drawn on much longer than I had originally planned, and it had resulted in a massive headache created from too little sleep combined with almost a full bottle of wine and no food in my stomach. I’d only picked at the pizza he’d ordered, but ultimately had not consumed much as my stomach refused to release from the knots in which it had tied itself.

Day 8: I was proofreading my manuscript in this cafe but I was so stupid and left it there, but when I came back to get it, I saw you reading it + stalia

Stiles sat at Mocha Mocha, hunched over his work, biting his lip as he read a line over and over again. Something about it was off, but he just couldn’t put his finger on it. It was driving him mad!

He was so absorbed in his thoughts that when his phone rang, he almost knocked his coffee off the table. Steadying the cup, he picked up the call quickly. “Hey, yeah I’m still here.” Stiles took off his glasses, rubbing his eyes tiredly as he looked up at the clock in the cafe. “What’s the rush anyways? I still have another two hours or—“

no (god damn) exit, because you're stuck in a tower HA! sorry.

And that bitch Penelope is gone! 

But overall

in which emma and henry make sure killian's birthday doesn't pass unnoticed

Henry corners her in the booth at Granny’s one morning, sliding in opposite her all business-like and serious and she just knows there’s plan forming in that head on his that he wants her in on. Emma sups at her hot chocolate and waits.

“Mom, we have to do something for Killian’s birthday!” Henry insists. Ah, there it is.

Emma is still half asleep so it takes her a little while to process what he’s saying. Killian hadn’t mentioned to her he had a birthday coming up. “Killian’s birthday? When is it?”

“That’s the thing!” Henry exclaims. “He doesn’t even remember when it is, even Smee doesn’t know–isn’t that the saddest thing you’ve ever heard? Not remembering your own birthday?”

Emma smiles, shrugging. “It is understandable, kid. He is over three hundred years old. I’d struggle to remember my birthday if I’d lived that long." 

"No, you wouldn’t because people who care about you would be there to remind you and celebrate it with you!” Henry says passionately. Heart of the truest believer indeed, Emma thinks, not for the first time admiring his inherent goodness. “Killian forgot because he never celebrated it– he didn’t have anyone to celebrate it with, but now he does. He has us. We have to celebrate it with him.”

At first, Emma had thought Henry’s upset about Killian not remembering his birthday was his abject refusal to consider someone not having a day a year devoted to them where they get cake and presents but she sees his point. Emma thinks about Killian after his brother and Milah died, alone and isolated on his ship on his birthday every year for over three hundred of them -no one left who cared enough to mark the date-until it became a just another day. It’s achingly sad when she thinks about it like that.

“Okay, kid, I’m in.” Emma leans in conspiratorially. Henry grins at her. “So, how exactly do we celebrate a birthday that no one knows the date of?”

Henry looks like he’s got this all figured and Emma has no doubt that he does. “Isn’t it obvious? We give him a new one!”

Girl Meets the Forgiveness Project + Girl Meets the Secret of Life

”It started off as just Forgiveness but then I got carried away and realised how much it linked into Secret of Life so… Here ya go.

Girl Meets the Forgiveness Project:

Maya was angry at her dad for leaving because ‘you don’t think I had it in me to allow my father room to grow’.

We all know ‘people change people’. But maybe sometimes, one person doesn’t change another but rather allows the person to change themself.

We’ve seen this before between Lucas and Maya. They do change each other, in cases such as:

GM Flaws - Lucas picks up Maya to stop her from going after Farkle’s bully, and she jumps on his back to stop him doing the same later.

GM Cory and Topanga - Lucas grabs Maya to stop her from hurting Farkle, and sits her down

Originally posted by hahuuurrrr

Maya says she has it in her to allow her father room to grow. She doesn’t change him, but would accept him changing himself.

Is that the case with Rucas or Lucaya? Lets see…

Riley and Lucas - Riley sees Lucas as her ‘knight in shining armor’, her prince, her hero. She’s grown up with fairytales and with corpanga - who have probably ruined lots of people’s stories - so she, being the naive muffin she is, believes that she will get that too. She deserves the happy ending, they all do, but its not going to be the perfect story she imagined it being.

Maya and Lucas - she didn’t grown up with fairytales and perfect parents; her dad left, and she thinks that everyone else will as well. She doesn’t have hope, she’s not naive like Riley. There is one story mentioned in the episode that she does grow up with though, and that is this one:

“Do you remember that night the thunder shook the apartment? I was five, and I thought the lightning was so bright I thought the world was on fire. I’m all under my covers crying and you come flying into the room and peek under the covers and decide to make it a game. We were in Alaska, and looking for gold. And you said the lightning was the northern lights. The aurora borealis. You made that entire night an adventure until the storm passed, and I woke up the next morning and it was a sunny day.”

Hmmm. First off, lets over analyse that story…

Thunder and lightning - Riley and Maya, like when they do the “Ring power! Thunder! Lightning!” thing.
Fire - Lucas and Maya, like in GM Yearbook - “But we’re a summer rain… And they’re like fiyah!” Plus girl meets WORLD, and the world is on fire, so the world is lucaya… idk
Gold - looking for gold. “I do go outside, Riley! I watch the light move during the day. And you know what happens at five thirty? You turn gold. Everything is more beautiful at the beginning and the end of the day.” (Btw, in this scene Maya is wearing a yellow-gold, and Riley wears some purple - remember her dance to the loss of purple? - oh writers, you’re so obvious 😂)
Adventure - while Riley wants to be the ‘damsel in distress’ with Lucas, and he be her knight in shining armour, Maya wants the adventure. She sees him as a cowboy, not as perfect but as flawed and human. That’s not to be horrible to Riley - with Farkle she doesn’t see him as perfect but even as a ‘pig’, yet he changes himself and she lets him and accepts him… 😉
Sun - the next day is sunny, the calm after the storm. Again look at Maya’s quote from creativity above.
The quote after the quote: “Mom. It was mom who came in. She made it Alaska, and I wasn’t scared at all.”

Ok but what if the storm is the whole rucaya thing, and Maya and Riley are the thunder and lightning… Afterwards, when its all (finally) solved, the sun comes out. And when they were pretending it was Alaska, it wasn’t scary anymore, unlike when Lucas was scared of Maya “I had nightmares about you from the day I first met you” Hart.

Anyway, I’m getting distracted… Back onto my theory about people changing themselves.

Girl Meets the Secret of Life:

As I mentioned above, there are times when Farkle changes himself and Riley accepts him, and the same the other way around. But as for Riley and Lucas… She sees him as perfect, so he can’t change, even though he’s not actually perfect. She made a big deal about him not being perfect in GM the secret of life, which was ironically the first time we saw the whole “people change people” thing.

First off, the first scene.

R: You know what I like? Life. And I like it when it doesn’t change.

M: So, you don’t want anything to change?
R: No, don’t like change. Change fills my pockets with pennies of uncertainty.

This obviously hints at Riley not liking Lucas changing for the rest of the story.

M: Look! We don’t know the story yet, lets know the story before you go to Rileytown!
R: I’m not going to Rileytown, I’m calm.
M: I like it worse when you’re calm. Come on, be you!
(Lucas sits down)
R: deny it.
L: Riley-
R: tell me whoever this Zay kid is, that he can’t just come in here and change you from the Lucas we know. Tell me nothing changes.
M: that’s all you have to do, Lucas. Do you hear me? I just called you by your actual name for the first time ever, that’s how important this is to me. Because its important to her. Deny it.
L: I can’t.
R: I like you. I went on my first date with you, do you think its right to let me like you without telling me who you are?
L: you know who I am. I’m Ranger Rick! We rode on a white horse! I asked my father’s permission just to go on a date with you. Who does that?!
R: were you thought out of school?
L: yes.
R: for a whole year?
L: yes.
M: I finally like you!

Okay, overanalysing time.

First off, Maya is saying that Riley isn’t calm (as we all know). Remember back in Forgiveness, the calm after the storm? If the calm isn’t Riley (and Lucas), then it must be Maya and Lucas.
Also, Maya says about Riley “going to Rileytown”, which is where she dreams of Lucas, her perfect prince/knight in shining armour. 
Riley wants Lucas to deny it, to keep being her perfect prince, to not change. Maya does as well, but only because she seems desperate to keep Riley happy.
The fact that the first person Lucas thinks he is is ranger rick is interesting. Maya thinks Lucas is ranger rick, Riley thinks he’s her perfect prince. Lucas sees himself as ranger rick, and sees the idea that he rode on a white horse with Riley ridiculous.
Maya finally likes Lucas after he admits the truth. Lucas changes, and Maya accepts it, but Riley does not. Back to the quote from forgiveness, “you don’t think I have it in me to allow my father room to grow”. If its about Lucas rather than Kermit… Maya has it in her, but Riley does not. (With Farkle, on the other hand… 😉)

Finally, a bunch of this links to Bay Window when Maya is the one not wanting change (nothing to do with Lucas though 😉) and Riley is again dreaming of her hero as we saw in her song. Plus Farkle was the one who saved her (twice) and therefore was her hero… But I’m gonna stop now.
