  • Probably the best fan and supporter I’ve ever had the pleasure to know in any fandom I’ve been a part of
  • Seriously anytime I find a new Zutara fic posted or anytime I post something new on my writing blog she’s already favorited, bookmarked, liked and left a sweet comment on it
  • IDK how she has time to do it. She reads everything everyone’s written and comments or reblogs every single one. 
  • EVERY SINGLE ONE. NO ONE IS LEFT WITHOUT KIND WORDS AND A ‘KISSES AND HUGS’ COMMENT 
  • What an encouragement????? Holy heck it brightens my day any time I get a notification from her
  • I’ve never talked to her before but I’d be willing to bet money that she’s that one friend who bakes people cookies or something on HER birthday
  • I just wanna let u know I appreciate u

Another smutastic masterpiece brought to you by my fabulous co-host @wildegreenlight 

There were only two things that made Ministry functions bearable: appetizers and Hermione in a dress, well, more accurately, taking Hermione out of her dress at the end of the night. Dancing wasn’t bad either, as long as it was his wife and not some old crone who wanted to babble on and on about his “war hero” status.

He had managed to escape two of those this evening and avoid a rather forward witch who was interning in his Dad’s department. Kingsley had cornered his beautiful wife half an hour ago, and he was now scanning the crowd trying to locate her.

A moment of unease furrowed his brow; even though he knew it was a bit silly, he always felt better when he knew she was safe, especially in large crowds. Before he could work himself up too much, Ron felt a hand on his back and another one slip into his pocket.

“Looking for someone?”

“Yeah, my wife, you seen her?”

“Not sure…what’s she look like?”

“You couldn’t miss her: she’s the most gorgeous witch here.”

“She must be to land a catch like you… not be too bright though…leaving you unattended…there’s all manner of birds swarming about. I’m sure they’d love to get their hands on such a fit specimen as yourself.”

Ron turned around, chuckling as he gazed into his wife’s eyes; they sparkled in that playful way he adored.

“Thank Merlin you’re back! I was positively afraid for my life out here alone.”

“You poor thing! How can I ever make it up to you?”

Different Slytherin

She was perfect. No, she wasn’t … She is perfect. The way her ssmile is so bright, the way her perfect hair bounce everytime she moves or the way her laugh is so loud.  She screamed Gryffindor or even Hufflepuff, she screamed fun,love and everything that poets love.

The first time  he saw her it was in the Great Hall, in the line that he knew very well,  she had arrived and everyone was so excited to discover which house she would belong, which house everyone there would belong.

She was one of the lasts. She was there, when almost everyone was sorted, smiling and with her arms crossed. And when her name was called everyone in the room hold their breath and no surprise she just smiled and somehow he knew the she would go to Gryffindor or Hufflepuff. She is so bright of course she belongs there.

Everyone was paying so much attention. It was impossible not to when she was smiling so big while sitting in this chair where everyone seemed to be so afraid of. It was the big time of everyone life include hers.

When the hat was placed in her head, above her mess of hair, everyone was in silence.

The girl was moving her feet and just smiling while her eyes was looking at everyplace she could.

It passed longs minutes when the hat screamed the name of house she would belong. The house where she would made her friends and maybe even met the lover of her life.

“ SSLYTHERIN” The hat screamed and she smiled again,  cause even if everyone just met her she seemed to be the type of girl who is always smiling.

She jumped out of the chair and walked to the very green table. She sat and then he lost her in the middle of a lot of Slytherin students.

He was not happy with that… She was so beautiful, so shinning and how that kind of girl could belong to a such horrible house. How could that happen?

- Are you okay,  PadFoot? - James asked looking ate his friend that still had his eyes at Slytherin table.

-Yeah, I am okay. Just so surprised that this girl is a Slytherin. -He said shrugging his shoulders.

- And You will never guess. -One boy, the one that was jut sorted like the beautiful girl, said.

-What? -Peter asked curious.

-She is not a pureblood.

-What? -The marauders screamed, even Remus who was quiet before. - That’s impossible. -Sirius completed.

The boy just nodded his head and turned to listen Dumbledore speech and letting all the boys still shocked and a Sirius with wide eyes looking at the girl talking to Severus and Lucius and right after smiling  at the boy besides her, his brother who was sorted a few moments before her.


Some years passed anyway, and the girl still was the girl who always smile, but now it was a little more private. The smile was smaller and her long and black hair now was short and so much more curlier, lot of locks of curls. She was a example to everyone.

The girl that Sirius didn’t know the first name after all this years was polite and always classy, wearing the most perfect clothes and her hair always perfect. She was almost a angel in the middle of lot demons.

- (Y/L/N) did it again. - Peter said sitting next to his friends. - She defended the Hufflepuff’s first year from Malfoy.

- Why the hell she is a Slytherin? - James asked confused. -For the first time I think the Hat made a mistake.

- I think that too. You are here after all. -Remus said rolling his eyes and trying to pay attention to his book and his homework. - Why are you talking about this girl again?  She a Slytherin, get over it. Now can we back to our homework?

-But Moony, she is a angel. How can she be there? -Padfoot whispered

- Lucifer was too. - Remus said smiling. - Look, no one here even know her first name, we just know that maybe she is not that bad but hey, we don’t talk to Slytherin any way, so why we should bother?

Pads just sighted and went back to his book but his mind still was in the different Slytherin. He didint know why but that girl just confused him. She intrigued him so much with her eyes showing a fire but still having the sweatiest smile ever.

The day the Marauders descoverd her name it was a week after, when they was joking around Snape, giving him names that he didint like and laughing so laud that anyone near could listen.

They were having fun when James felt a tap on his shoulders making he stop laughing a little to turn around and face the Slytherin girl wearing a beautiful smile.

- Hello, James, Sirius, Remus and Peter. - She said with a big smile and then looking at Snape who was on the air without any pants. -Hey, Severus. - Said waving her hand ate him. -How are you all?

- Good? -James said _ asked _ looking ate his friends confused.

-That’s very good,I was excellent a few minutes ago, if you minded. - She said sighing - But then I saw you all making fun of my very dear friend and that’s not a very polite thing to do,guys.

- And who says we care to being polite? -Peter said laughing and gaining a very sharp look of the girl.

-Well, Lucius told me that you, Gryffindor,  are not very polite but I wanted to believe otherside and now I am just regretting that. -She said looking a little sad. -If you don’t let my friend down I will have to do something that none of you would appreciate.

- And you,a Slytherin,think that you can do something to us? - James asked laughing loud and then looking at his friends. -Did you see that? This little girl think she can harm us.

- (Y/N)! You don’t have to do it. -Snape shouted.

-Its not a problem, Severus. Lucius said that I should practice a little more anyway. -She said with a smiling and then looking at the four boys in front of her.

All the boys lost their doubts about her being Slytherin when they saw the smirk on her lips and her eyes with a fire. None of them could actually tell how all of that could happened but the just blinked and they were hanging in the air, all of them, while Severus was outing his pants besides the girl.


-What the hell do you think are doing? - Sirius shouted looking at the girl who just laughed -Let us down.

- Look, Severus, They don’t think that joke is fun anymore. - (y/n) said taking of their pants. - Do you think I should let them down?

- C'mon, Snivellus, You know we were just kidding with you. - James said.

- I don’t think he will let us down. - Moony said just to his friends listen.

- Let us down now!

- Or what? Would you tell you mom, Sirius? - Snape asked.  - Wait, your mom doesn’t care about you. -He laughed

- Severus. - (Y/N) shouted looking at her friend. - That’s not a thing that you should say! - She told him while throwing the boy’s pants at the lake.

-Why that? Its not like we are their friends anyway. -He shrugged.

- Okay, guys,I think I had enough. - She said letting all the boys falling hard on the flour and walking to them. - And Sirius, you can’t have a mom but that doesn’t mean that you dont have a family. -She said smiling at The black haired boy. -Oh, please, dont meses with me friends anymore or I will do worse than that.

- She is a weirdo . -James said looking at the girl who was walking to the castle with her friend. - Who is nice and a demon at the same time?

- Yeah, a weirdo

What Sirius never told anyone that moment it was that weirdo had, maybe, stole his heart.

A Jonsa drabble (of course, duh). A flash of inspiration thanks to the above. One shot modern AU fluff and I couldn’t resist. Sorry.

Don’t Tell (Her)

Sansa sighed loudly as she fell onto her bed in sheer exhaustion. She would take a shower after her nap. It had been a long shift and the four car pile up on the M51 motorway had sapped her of everything she had, when the victims came ushered in one after another. She had counted at least seven of them.

Seven survivors and none dead, she thought, thankfully.

Just as she was about to close her eyes, her ears registered a faint knock on her door. Sansa rolled her eyes, wishing she had her own place for the thousandth time.

“Come in.”

“Hi darling, I thought I heard you come home,” Catelyn sauntered in to greet her eldest daughter. Her bright blue eyes danced as she sat on Sansa’s bed. Sansa was exhausted beyond doubt but there was no need to brush off and dismiss her mother because of it. It was probably something she needed help with.

“So, your dad’s birthday is coming up and instead of the usual date night we always have, thought maybe we could plan something as a family. What do you think?”

Yeah, there it is.

“Right, of course, Mum. What do you have in mind?”

“Oh I don’t know love, maybe go for a short weekend getaway? Rent a ski chalet up north with the family? You’re so good at planning all these my darling, whatever you think I’m sure your dad would love it,” Catelyn suggested.

She was right. Sansa had a talent in organising family events and the most recent one was a luau for Rickon’s 12th birthday. Everything went perfectly as planned that day, even the weather cooperated. Sunny and warm, without a drop of rain. Sansa knew Rickon’s obsession with surfing wasn’t just a phase. It was one party to remember and it had earned her heaps of praise from everyone who attended. She stifled a giggle when she remembered the look on both her parent’s faces when he boldly announced his wish to be a professional surfer when he grew up. No doubt, the party anchored that dream firmly in him. Rickon with his sandy auburn hair and blue eyes would have no trouble looking the part.

“Did someone say ski chalet? Ooh can we go, can we go please?” a voice rang in excitedly as Arya who was looking for her mother, walked past her room and joined them.

Ugh. Great, leave the door open Mum, please, don’t bother ever shutting it. Ever.

“We’re going skiing everybody!” Arya bellowed, obviously trying to rally the rest. Sansa slumped back onto the headboard in defeat.

Yeah, okay call everyone in here please, how thrilling. Sleep, what sleep I don’t need sleep.

“What? Skiing? Really? When?” Bran’s head popped in seconds after. “Ricky! We’re going skiing!”

“Oh my god really? Good lord, of all freaking times..” Sansa sighed, waving her hands up in exasperation.

“Now, now, nothing’s been planned yet but I thought for Daddy’s birthday we’d do something together as a family. So I asked Sansa if she thought renting a ski chalet for the weekend would be a good idea,” Catelyn explained gently to her excited brood.

“Sansa, we have to go skiing, what’s there to think about? Get on it, will ya?” Arya demanded, plonking herself on Sansa’s bed, which suddenly felt very crowded.

Rickon and Bran leapt in and sat on the carpeted floor beside Sansa’s bed. “Yeah, can we go please Sansa? Pretty please? We rarely ever go skiing with Mum and Dad. Please?” Rickon pressed his palms together in a mock prayer to Sansa, his earnest face scrunched up adorably. In spite of herself, Sansa chuckled, how could she say no to that face.

“What’s happening? Family meeting?” Robb’s voice greeted them as he entered the already stuffy bedroom.

“Sansa’s going to plan a birthday trip for Dad. We’re going skiing!” Rickon shared excitedly with Robb, who was now already leaning against the wall next to Sansa’s bed and the boys.

“ Is that right? So does Dad get to know or is this a surprise?” Robb asked, chuckling at his brothers’ enthusiastic nods.

“We should tell him, you know he doesn’t like surprises. Plus he’s the one who needs to drive us up there anyway. So would be better if he knows,” Sansa finally spoke amidst all the enthusiasm and excitement in the air. Everyone nodded in agreement.

“Well then, I guess that settles it. So a skiing getaway it is. So, I leave it to you my dear, I’ll leave my credit card details for the booking and let me know if there’s anything you need help with. Ooh, this would be such a great birthday trip for him, I know it!” Catelyn hugged her daughter and finally concluded the impromptu family meeting. Sansa nodded and smiled. She was too exhausted to say anything else and perhaps that would be a signal for everyone to get out of her room so she could rest. Sansa was seconds away from barking at them to leave but she was supposed to be a good example so she chewed on her lip instead.

“Okay everyone out of Sansa’s room, she just got home and she needs to rest. She can’t plan anything if we don’t let her rest. Come on everybody out the door now,” Catelyn playfully shooed the rest of them away towards the door and stepped out herself, as if on cue and gave a wink to Sansa. Sansa smiled back appreciatively and threw herself back on her bed and ducked under the covers.

Yes. Finally. Peace and quiet.

“Hey Sans-”

Sansa wished her bed would just swallow her up. Sansa gritted her teeth. “Oh my god, yes! We are going skiing for the weekend and yes, everyone IS going and I’ll take care of it. Now if you don’t let me sleep, I swear to god I’ll cancel the whole trip and all we’re going to do is eat breakfast at McDonald’s for dad’s birthday! Please just go away and let me rest!”

Sansa’s head popped up from under her duvet covers to see who was disturbing her this time.

“McDonald’s breakfast doesn’t sound too bad, honestly. I personally recommend the hot cakes,” Jon greeted her as he sat at the edge of her bed, watching her with an amused look on his handsome face. Sansa groaned and sat up, giving him an apologetic frown. Jon reached over and gifted her a much needed kiss on her lips. It was brief but just what she needed from her beloved.

“Don’t ask. Two words. Dad’s birthday.” Sansa shrugged and held out her arms to Jon for a hug. “I missed you.”

They hadn’t seen each other for days ever since Jon started his shift as a paramedic a week ago. Granted, it wasn’t a new relationship but it was a new job that meant irregular hours for both of them. She still missed him terribly.

“I missed you too, my love. I take it you had a long day?“

Sansa nodded as she pulled away from Jon. She must look terribly exhausted to him, but she didn’t care. Jon was here and it was all that mattered.

“Stay in with me?” Sansa pleaded with a playful pout. Jon chuckled. There was nothing more he wanted to do than to cuddle in bed with her. But they weren’t alone and it wasn’t appropriate. Even though he practically grew up with the Starks, he still respected boundaries. If they wanted to be intimate, it would be at the privacy of their own home. Which was going to be soon, since they both had decided to move in together once Jon had settled in with his new job. Plus, Ned Stark would be home any minute.

“Ah, I would love to my gorgeous girl, but you are in desperate need of a nap and I promised Bran to help him build.. Something. I forgot what he asked me to do but I said okay.”

“Oh that’s too bad. Would be nice to have you in bed with me.”

“Oh no, no. Don’t you start it, Miss Stark. You know very well what will happen if I do get in that bed with you.”

Sansa giggled and nodded. True enough, having him in her bed would be the next best thing, but she wouldn’t get any rest, if her furtive glances at the zip of his jeans were any indication.

“Don’t worry, my shift is done for today so I’ll still be here when you wake up,” Jon reassured her and pressed a kiss on her forehead. Sansa inhaled deeply, he smelled of soap and clean clothes, which reminded her of the shower she so badly needed.

“Tuck me in, then?” Sansa asked, tugging at his sleeve playfully. Jon smiled and grabbed hold of the covers as Sansa laid her head back on the pillow.

“Kiss you later, sleeping beauty.” Jon kissed her again as she closed her eyes and finally drifted off to sleep. Jon stepped out and closed the bedroom door, heading downstairs to the kitchen where the rest of the Starks were.

“So, I take it she agreed to the skiing weekend thing?” Jon asked Robb, joining him at the dining table who was watching Bran and Rickon play their video games on their tablets.

“She did. Told Mum it was an idea for Dad’s birthday and run it by Sansa. I mean, it is DAD’S birthday. And skiing. If it’s one thing we Starks do well, it’s family vacations. And we’re crazy about the cold. Which is odd to me. But yeah, great suggestion. Mum liked it. Plus, it’s Sansa. She loves planning stuff like these. She won’t say no,” Robb grinned as he rambled on, passing him a beer.

Well she better not. I’ve got everything planned out in secret to make it a weekend to remember.

Jon stuffed his hand into the right pocket of his jacket and squeezed the little velvet box he had been holding onto for the past few days.

Robb saw and smirked at him. “So, you really going for it huh?”

Jon nodded and smiled at Robb. He took out the box and opened it for Robb to see. It was worth six month’s of his salary but he knew it was perfect for her.

Trump’s spokesdemon, Kellyanne Conway, has bounced around Washington for a number of years in various forms, and like a chameleon in a human skin suit, she has been able to mold into new roles to fit her situations. Like how she went from a pollster to a pundit, or how she joined Trump’s team after months of questioning his qualifications.

Or the time she pretended she was a stand-up comedian. Thankfully, some unnamed American hero decided to record all 11 cringe-tastic minutes.

Back in the ‘90s, Kellyanne Fitzpatrick (her old name) apparently performed a stand-up set at a charity benefit in a room filled with Washington insiders. To her credit, this appears to be original material, but it’s so schlocky that it makes you question if she had ever heard a joke before. This isn’t “Hey, it’s my first time, give me a break” – this is “I saw an episode of Jay Leno and this shit looks easy.” For example, she explains her leg cast by saying “Well, everyone knew I was gonna be in this comedy show and said break a leg, so I did.” Or this zinger: “New survey’s out that says 70 percent of men think about sex all the time. The other 30 percent are lying.” Hold for applause.

Somehow it gets worse.

5 Embarrassing Secrets Hiding In Trump’s Cabinet

anonymous asked:

lili posts stuff with everyone (for example, she even posted a cute vid with ross just now) but with cole they're like never in the same shot? it's always her filming him or him filming her, but they never film things with the front camera facing them both?? it's so weird and they're obviously great friends because they're always hanging out but she treats him differently to all the others, as if she has to hide her friendship with him or something. also they never take selfies lol.

Listen, i knooooow! This is (and obvi their clinginess, chemistry, and for me the twitter banter) what made us all go 👀👀👀👀 from the beginning! They definitely have a different relationship than the rest of the cast.

Christianity and The Foxhole Court

One of the biggest, and in my opinion most important, forms of representation in tfc is it’s portrayal of Christianity.

Now you’re probably like, “Why? Christianity is every where.”

My response would be, “No, it’s really not.”

Christianity is often portrayed to be a roadblock, something the surrounding characters believe but the Enlightened MC doesn’t. It’s often portrayed as a prejudiced religion with an angry God. A God who is mad at his children and wants to destroy the world or whatever. Fire and Brimstone. Christianity has gained a rep for being extremely bigoted, because the media no longer takes the time to differentiate between people using God as an excuse to be close minded or flat out hurt other people, and (What I call) true Christianity, That’s not what true Christianity is. 

So yes, Christianity is everywhere. But it hasn’t been portrayed positively for a long time.

So it means so much to me that, not only do we have Christian characters who work to counteract those stereotypes, but Nora also take the time to differentiate between Christianity and Bigotry. 

The first quote we have about it is in Ch. 6 of The Foxhole Court when Neil describes Renee:

“The Foxes’ senior goalkeeper had bright white hair cut to her chin. The bottom two inches of her hair were dyed in alternating pastel colors. It was interesting enough to warrant a second look, but downright odd when paired with her scant make-up, conservative clothes, and delicate silver cross necklace. Nicky had called her the sweetheart of the team. Neil understood why as he listened to her talk. He had no idea how she qualified for the Foxes’ halfway-house team.”

Which when I was first reading I was like “nice nice nice!”. So not only do we have a positive Christian character who is not an ass, we have subtle commentary on how people tend to view Christianity, through Neil calling her dyed hair “downright odd” when paired with her more natural looks, and wondering how she “qualified” for the team. I figured that would be the end of it.

I was wrong, and I’ve never been more happy to be in my life.

The big one for me was during the conversation with Nicky in the library:

“My parents are kind of crazy, you know? There’s religious and there’s super psychotic religious. Me and Renee, we’re the decent sort, I think. We go to different churches and have different ideas, but we respect each other anyway. We understand that religion is just an interpretation of faith. But my parents are the black-and-white crazy kind. It’s only right and wrong with them: hell-fire and damnation and judgment from on high.”

At which point I almost cried. This paragraph comes right after Nicky has been describing why he loves Eric, and how Eric makes him feel safe. And then he says that line:

“There’s religious and there’s super psychotic religious.”

One line. One line, and a stereotype destroyed. There is a huge difference between Christianity and Bigotry, and the media’s blurring of the two has led to toxic stereotypes that make Christianity seems like some awful demoralizing religion. You can be Christian and be gay. You can be Christian and not be a bigot who hates change. We are not the people who use our religion to hurt other people. At the base level, those who are of the bigoted religion are no better than the Islamic terrorists, hiding behind religion to justify there inhumane actions and making everyone else who practices the religion suffer for it.

Then it’s followed by NIcky saying, “Yeah we don’t exactly agree about every little detail, but we understand that religion is just an interpretation of faith.” There are thousands of sects of Christianity, because Christianity is about your individual relationship with God. There are thousands of religions because people choose to interpret the world differently. Just because you believe this bible verse should be interpreted this way, not that way, doesn’t mean you can’t get along. Because the core values of Christianity are the same, regardless of sect. 

Which leads me to my next quote(also by NIcky):

“We cannot condone the sin,” Maria said.

“You don’t have to love the sin,“ Nicky said, "but you’re supposed to forgive and love the sinner. Isn’t that what faith is about?" 

At which point I started shrieking. This is exactly what faith is about. Exactly. This is what Christianity is about. It is not your job as a Christian to tell people their sins, or tell them how to live their lives, or punish them somehow for sinning. That is the opposite. Christianity is about helping those who need help, not about saving those who you feel need to be saved. Leave the saving up to God. That’s his job. Your job is to help those who need it without preaching scripture at them. Only if they enter your church and say, “Hey, will you tell me about Jesus?” do you have any right to go throwing your belief at them. And even then you don’t go listing their sins. You tell them the message of the bible, that Jesus died for all our sins, and here’s how they can accept Jesus into their heart, if that’s what they choose to do. It’s not that complicated.

So in one sentence she effectively points out and comments on the difference between religious and Bigotry. She calls out the Bigots, literally, “If the first step isn’t tolerance, where does a pair of bigots begin in fixing a mess like this?”, but also provides a glimpse of (ill placed) reasoning when Luther responds, “Faith is following the Lord’s creed” circling back to the idea that religion is an interpretation of faith(which is a whole ‘nother post regarding that and bigoted Christianity). 

(Also stfu Luther bc I’m pretty sure sending your son to a anti-gay camp and letting someone rape your nephew and creating a toxic and unsafe home for your children/nephews is pretty damn far from the “Lord’s creed” bye.)

Then she takes it one step further with Renee. Renee is a beautiful example of what Christianity is. She is kind and nice to everyone, she gives but doesn’t expect to take, she is sweet and polite, even to the Ravens, and she is a wonderful example of Christianity in practice. The core value of Christianity is basically, try to be a decent person. Renee is someone even other Christians can look to for inspiration. 

Then there is her quote:

“I am a bad person trying very hard to be a good person.”

This is so important, because never once is Renee framed in the light of her religion. She’s just a bad person trying to be good. She’s not trying to repent or convert or condemn. She’s just trying to be a good person. Like we should all aspire to be. But that’s exactly what make her such an important character from a Christian perspective. The Bible doesn’t even really ask you to be a good or perfect person, only that you try. And that’s exactly what Renee is trying to do. 

This quote is then followed by the first glimpse you get into Renee’s past:

“…”I’m not,” Renee said…”I know I should be, but that’s still something I’m working on. I know I was directly responsible for the circumstances that led to their murders, but to be honest I hated them. On top of that, without my mother’s death I never would have ended up here. With my mother dead and my biological father in the wind, the courts had no choice but to release me into foster care after my year at a juvenile facility,” Renee said. “I made life as difficult as I could for my foster families and jumped eight homes in two years. Stephanie Walker found out about me from one of my foster mothers at her high school reunion. She put in a request for me, pushed it until it was approved, and moved me to North Dakota as soon as it was finalized.  She gave me a new name, a new faith, and a new chance at life.”

In many ways, Renee’s story is like the ultimate Christian story. She was lost, but now she is found. She is happy, safe, and healing. She has made peace with herself and her past, and she is trying to be a good person. And that’s what Christianity is all about.

I misread the ask from @audreyhanna as "I love your mom" instead of "I love your blog" and I went through a full minute of asking if this was an insult or if someone actually loved your mother, then considered the likelihood of this person knowing you and your mother irl, then read it again and realized what it said.

newkckekfkw omg that’s brilliant tbh. everyone loves my mum.. she’s pretty chill. example a: i came home drunk last night and forgot my keys to get into the house and i had to throw stones at her window to wake her up. she didn’t even yell, bless her soul 😫

anonymous asked:

"Le.xa is the most beautiful soul in this stupid show." - nah dear anon, she isn't. She's the most OVERRATED character in the show and she was the reason S3 was a disaster and most of the critics and even the CW PRESIDENT, hated the first part of S3. She's overrated and everything she did, if it was made by a man, would be seen as ABUSE. But because she's a girl and lesbian, everyone forgives EVERY SINGLE SHITTY THING SHE DID. Like, for example, left Clarke & everyone else to DIE in MW.

I love Iris West for all her positive qualities, but I love her less than positive ones, too.

I love how she didn’t know what to do with her life and career because she gave up her passion to avoid confrontation with her dad. As someone who internalizes and represses negative emotions, I relate to that majorly. 

I love how she doesn’t take things seriously, like journalism, until they affect her personally and change her worldview… Causing her to dive in headfirst before anyone is willing to take her seriously.

I love how she rushes into danger without a plan, and has to formulate one on the spot. Which sometimes means calling up a superhero friend to get her the hell out of the situation she’s in, lol.

I love that she can be so observant when it comes to situations outside her personal sphere, but blinds herself to the most obvious stuff solely because she expects that everyone will be as honest as she is. Except, of course, when she hides things for months because she doesn’t know how to process them.

I love how she tries so hard to keep everyone happy and make everyone feel like they have a place in her life… Which leads to quite the opposite, actually. There was a silent tug-of-war between Barry and Eddie all of the first season, because she she refused to admit feelings she had but also refused to change how close she was to her best friend. Which is totally her right, but it did cause pain when she meant to do the opposite, and I love that about her because that’s my life.

Finally, I love how she forgives and forgives and forgives without a second thought… Until she can’t anymore. Again, it all goes back to Iris being such an internal character. She sometimes explodes at inappropriate times - like group dinner dates or while her dad is kidnapped by a psychic gorilla - because she has let the hurt simmer too long. And then because she can’t stand to be the one in conflict or to keep causing pain when the pressure it on, she forgives and forgets without resolving the core issue. When Eddie is in trouble, she lets him get away with lying about his relationship to the Flash in order to have him back. And when the unity of the team is at stake because Barry changed their entire lives, she gives up her anger at her father and forgives him without even reminding him to stop fucking lying to her… In order to lead by example, and because as usual she puts everyone else above herself. That frustrates me so much, and I love her for it.

Peridot, an adaptive and observant gem (a long analysis/theory)

 Okay, as I am well aware many people in the fandom have made remarks about Peridot (Peridork, you know who I am talking about). These theories and analysis have been on various topics such as Peridot being really young (almost/is a child) and that’s why she copies and learns from Steven who is also a kid. Now, this is fairly believable, and I do like this analysis. But, if I may I am going to go into further detail in Peridot “copying” from Steven. 

 My theory is that Peridot (perhaps all of the “Peridots” since it’s highly likely that there’s more than one of each gem) is a gem that learns through the actions of her surroundings and companions rather than through straightforward commands. Now this does not necessarily mean that she doesn’t have preexisting programming in her, like her data, orders, and so on. Obviously, she does not make her own plans or decisions (although she has to now) however, she can’t be surrounded by just anyone. I think that if a Peridot is surrounded by other Peridots then they stay as they were programmed to, emotionless and stiff, much like how we, the audience saw Peridot from her debut. And, this also stays if a Peridot is surrounded by other gems(maybe even people as well) who are emotionless or at a higher position( like Jasper) but even when Peridot was with Jasper she already began to grow a personality (she became annoyed at Jasper not wanting to follow the orders Peridot was made to follow). 

Remember Peridot said:

“Go to Earth they said, it’ll be easy they said.” She made a jab to the gems who she was with before, because she got annoyed at Jasper, who was going against her orders. 

So, to take from this so far is that if Peridot is surrounded by someone young, jubilant, and good, well she might either become like that person, or become  the exact opposite, because those certain emotions go against her “programming” and the surroundings she was use to (the other emotionless gems). Steven is really nice to Peridot (well because it’s Steven) but the Crystal Gems see Peridot as a threat and are constantly trying to stop her plans. To Peridot this is probably an extremely stressful situation, and now that she is by herself without Jasper, other emotionless gems, or even possibly Yellow Diamond she doesn’t have any one to tell her what to do, each decision she makes is her own. She is exploring herself, but she probably still doesn’t know what to do or who she even is. And as a result, everyone around her is still a major influence on what she should do.

Look, I have some examples for this:

First, this picture in “The Return”:

 Everyone in the fandom has basically made the above picture one of the “key plot points” in Peridot’s character. Well, I don’t think people are wrong when they say that because this scene was specifically shown to show Peridot’s reaction, she did take a step back when Jasper took out the gem destabilizer but so did Lapis. Now, I think Lapis knew what the weapon was and that is why she stepped back, but for Peridot I think the reason was different, I don’t think she particularly knew what that item was. Peridot is smart (she probably has a ton of data installed in her) but, remember she didn’t even know who the Crystal gems were, so her source (the one who gave her, her data) probably left some important information out. It is possible though that Peridot knew that it was a gem destabilizer but she probably had never seen one been use before until now so she doesn’t know everything about it.

Her reaction at first isn’t what is the most important part though, no, it’s what she does afterward once she sees Jasper use the gem destabilizer. 

She uses as a weapon (in “Jailbreak”), against Steven. She notices how Jasper used it to fight, and Peridot, who does not know how to fight or defend herself, sees that as the only tool she can use against the Crystal Gems (enemies she still doesn’t have any information on). But then,( because Steven isn’t affected by gem-technology) the gem destabilizer doesn’t work on Steven, that’s why her face is filled with such shock, she doesn’t have a back-up plan, meaning she doesn’t know what to do. So then, Peridot is left defenseless and is easily taken out (tied up).

So, now she knows that Steven can’t be taken out like the others can, she now has learned from Jasper, the gem destabilizer isn’t important anymore it’s been discarded.

But, by being tied up and pinned down by Amethyst, Peridot has learned how to deal with her whip. Remember this scene in “Keeping it Together”

Peridot knows what will happen if she gets tied down by Amethyst, she’ll become defenseless again, she’ll get captured and this time she doesn’t have an escape pod (she was lucky the first time). So what does she do? She quickly makes Amethyst unable to use her whip so she can escape. 

And when she escapes what does she do?

 She uses her fingers to fly away, and now she knows that this form of escape (the “Pericopter”) is useful, and the Crystal Gems can’t catch her, that’s why she uses it so many times after. She uses it twice to escape in “Friendship.” 

And speaking of that episode, Peridot is shown to use her experiences with the Crystal Gems to her advantage a lot.

First, everyone knows how Peridot copied Steven when he stuck out his tongue at her. She realizes the insult, and uses it as her own taunt; she is getting a bit of a comedic side now.

Then, notice how Pearl is cutting off everyone as they talk, first she does it to Garnet, and then to Amethyst, now she probably didn’t mean to because she had so much on her mind but what did Peridot do when Amethyst was talking to her? 

She cut her off, just like what Pearl did.

Another thing Peridot notice with Pearl was how off she was on that day. She noticed how badly Pearl wanted to capture/defeat her, she did lunge right at her from the beginning, and then Peridot stopped her (but that was by chance). 

But, she takes note of Pearl’s actions and forms the perfect trap based off of that. She pretends to be right in front of Pearl (when she became a hologram) and just like she thought Pearl went straight for her without thinking properly and fell right into her trap.

And, in the beginning of that episode what did Steven do to Peridot to try to stop her? He hit her face with his shield; hit her right on her nose.

And it worked too, it actually hurt her as she did say “ouch.” In a rather annoyed and surprised way, she probably didn’t expect that to work as well as it did to cause her pain. As a result of its effectiveness, Peridot tries to return the favor to Steven. When Steven latches on to Peridot what does she do? She flicks his face; right on the nose too! This gem didn’t think anything would be more effective to have him release her then flicking his nose because that is basically what he did to her.

A few other things I will like to point out is that Peridot notices how strong her beam was to destroy that pillar in the beginning of “Friendship” which is why she destroys the top of the ceiling to have her escape rather than fight the Crystal Gems, because she knows she can and figures she’ll escape since she’s been getting away each time she has faced the Crystal Gem’s so far.

Also, when Jasper says: “Yellow Diamond needs to see this.” (The Return) Lapis isn’t the only who looks worried, Peridot is too.

I think that Peridot saw Yellow Diamond only as someone she needed to report to and was actually really frightened around her presence. But, then she noticed how easily Jasper was to want to speak to her and show her something. Which is why I think Peridot calls out to Yellow Diamond in “Cry for help” she think’s she’ll listen because of how loosely Jasper said her name the last time. I don’t think she would have sent a distress signal if that hadn’t had happen.

So, do you see it now? Peridot is extremely observant, she takes her surroundings and the interactions she has around others and she learns, she adapts. She’s rather smart and she is changing, but I don’t think she truly realizes this yet. I don’t think Peridot has noted her own change since coming to Earth.

What Is a Dissociative Disorder?

Introduction
Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) (known in the past as Multiple Personality Disorder-MPD) and other Dissociative Disorders are now understood to be fairly common effects of severe trauma in early childhood. The most common cause is extreme, repeated physical, sexual, and/or emotional abuse.

There is a great deal of overlap of symptoms and experiences among the several Dissociative Disorders, including DID. Some people who may not qualify for a specific diagnosis may, nevertheless, have problems with dissociation. For ease of reading, we use “Dissociative Disorders” as a general term for all of the diagnoses. Individuals should seek help from qualified mental health providers to answer questions about their own particular circumstances and diagnoses.

Q: Is DID the same as MPD?
n 1994, the American Psychiatric Association’s manual that classifies and describes all psychiatric diagnoses changed the name from Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) to Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). They felt this better reflected the current professional understanding of the disorder, based on significant recent research.

Q: What Does Trauma Have to Do with DID?
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a trauma-related mental illness affecting 8% of Americans. PTSD is closely related to Dissociative Disorders. In fact, most people with a Dissociative Disorder also have PTSD. The cost of trauma disorders is extremely high to individuals, families, and society. Recent research suggests that people with trauma disorders may attempt suicide more often than people who have major depression. Research also shows that people with trauma disorders have more serious medical illnesses, substance use, and self-harming behaviors.

Q: What Is Dissociation?
Dissociation is a disconnection between a person’s thoughts, memories, feelings, actions, or sense of who he or she is. This is a normal process that everyone has experienced. Examples of mild, common dissociation include daydreaming, highway hypnosis, or “getting lost” in a book or movie, all of which involve “losing touch” with awareness of one’s immediate surroundings.

Q: When Is Dissociation Helpful?
During a traumatic experience such as an accident, disaster, or crime victimization, dissociation can help a person tolerate what might otherwise be too difficult to bear. In situations like these, a person may dissociate the memory of the place, circumstances, or feelings about of the overwhelming event, mentally escaping from the fear, pain, and horror. This may make it difficult to later remember the details of the experience, as reported by many disaster and accident survivors.

Q: What is a Dissociative Disorder?
Tragically, ongoing traumatic conditions such as abuse, community violence, war, or painful medical procedures are not one-time events.   For people repeatedly exposed to these experiences, especially in childhood, dissociation is an extremely effective coping “skill.” However, it can become a double-edged sword. It can protect them from awareness of the pain in the short-run, but a person who dissociates often may find in the long-run his or her sense of personal history and identity is affected. For some people, dissociation is so frequent it results in serious pathology, relationship difficulties, and inability to function, especially when under stress.

Q: Who Gets Dissociative Disorders?
As many as 99% of people who develop Dissociative Disorders have documented histories of repetitive, overwhelming, and often life-threatening trauma at a sensitive developmental stage of childhood (usually before the age of nine). They may also have inherited a biological predisposition for dissociation. In our culture, the most frequent cause of Dissociative Disorders is extreme physical, emotional, and sexual abuse in childhood. Survivors of other kinds of childhood trauma (such as natural disasters, invasive medical procedures, war, kidnapping, and torture) have also reacted by developing Dissociative Disorders.

Q: Is DID a Major Mental Health Problem?
Current research shows that DID may affect 1% of the general population and as many as 5-20% of people in psychiatric hospitals. The rates are even higher among sexual-abuse survivors and addicts. These statistics put Dissociative Disorders in the same category as schizophrenia, depression, and anxiety, as one of the four major mental health problems today.

Q: Does DID Affect Both Women and Men?
Most current literature shows that Dissociative Disorders are recognized primarily among women. The latest research, however, indicates that the disorders may be equally prevalent (but less frequently diagnosed) among men. Men with Dissociative Disorders are most likely to be in treatment for other mental illnesses or drug and alcohol abuse, or they may be incarcerated.

Q: How Does a Dissociative Disorder Develop?
When faced with an overwhelming situation from which there is no physical escape, a child may learn to “go away” in his or her head. Children typically use this ability as a defense against physical and emotional pain, or fear of that pain. By dissociating, thoughts, feelings, memories, and perceptions of the trauma can be separated off in the mind.  This allows the child to function normally. This often happens when no parent or trusted adult is available to stop the hurt, soothe, and care for the child at the time of traumatic crisis. The parent/caregiver may be the source of the trauma, may neglect the child’s needs, may be a co-victim, or may be unaware of the situation.

Q: How Do Dissociative Disorders Help People Survive?
Dissociative Disorders are often called a self-protection or survival technique because they allow individuals to endure “hopeless” circumstances and preserve some healthy functioning. For a child who has been repeatedly physically and sexually assaulted, however, dissociation becomes a reinforced and conditioned defense.

Q: If It’s a Survival Technique, What’s the Down Side?
Because it is so effective, children who are very practiced at dissociating may automatically use it whenever they feel threatened–even if the anxiety-producing situation is not extreme or abusive. Even after the traumatic circumstances are long past, the left-over pattern of defensive dissociation sometimes remains into adulthood. Habitual defensive dissociation may lead to serious dysfunction in school, work, social, and daily activities.

Q: How Do the Identities of DID Develop?
Until about the age of eight or nine years, children are developmentally primed for fantasy play, such as when they create and interact with imaginary “friends.” When under extreme stress, young children may call on this special ability to develop a “character” or “role” into which they can escape when feeling threatened. One therapist described this as nothing more than a little girl imagining herself on a swing in the sunshine instead of at the hands of her abuser. Repeated dissociation can result in a series of separate entities, or mental states, which may eventually take on identities of their own. These entities can become the internal “personality states” of DID. Changing between these states of consciousness is often described as “switching.”

Q: Do People Actually Have “Multiple Personalities”?
Yes, and no. One of the reasons for the decision to change the disorder’s name from MPD to DID is that “multiple personalities” is a misleading term. A person with DID feels as if she has within her two or more entities, each with its own way of thinking and remembering about herself and her life. These entities previously were often called “personalities,” even though the term did not accurately reflect the common definition of the word. Other terms often used by therapists and survivors to describe these entities are: “alternate personalities,” “alters,” “parts,” “states of consciousness,” “ego states,” and “identities.” It is important to keep in mind that although these alternate states may feel or appear to be very different, they are all manifestations of a single, whole person.

Q: Is it Obvious when a Person Switches Personalities?
Unlike popular portrayals of dissociation in books and movies, most people with Dissociative Disorders work hard to hide their dissociation. They can often function so well, especially under controlled circumstances, that family members, coworkers, neighbors, and others with whom they interact daily may not know that they are chronically dissociative.  People with Dissociative Disorders can hold highly responsible jobs, contributing to society in a variety of professions, the arts, and public service.

Q:  What Are the Symptoms of a Dissociative Disorder?
People with Dissociative Disorders may experience any of the following: depression, mood swings, suicidal thoughts or attempts, sleep disorders (insomnia, night terrors, and sleep walking), panic attacks and phobias (flashbacks, reactions to reminders of the trauma), alcohol and drug abuse, compulsions and rituals, psychotic-like symptoms, and eating disorders. In addition, individuals can experience headaches, amnesias, time loss, trances, and “out-of-body experiences.” Some people with Dissociative Disorders have a tendency toward self-persecution, self-sabotage, and even violence (both self-inflicted and outwardly directed).

Q: Why Are Dissociative Disorders Often Misdiagnosed?
Dissociative Disorders survivors often spend years living with the wrong diagnosis. They change from therapist to therapist and from medication to medication, getting treatment for symptoms but making little or no actual progress. Research shows that people with Dissociative Disorders spend an average of seven years in the mental health system before getting the correct diagnosis. This is common because the symptoms that drive a person with a Dissociative Disorder to treatment are very similar to those of many other psychiatric diagnoses.

Q: What Are Some Common Misdiagnoses?
Common misdiagnoses include attention deficit disorder (especially among children), because of difficulties in concentration and memory; bipolar disorder, because “switching” can look like rapid-cycling mood swings; schizophrenia or psychoses, because flashbacks can cause auditory and visual hallucinations; and addictions, because alcohol and drugs are frequently used to self medicate or to numb the psychic pain.

Q: What Other Mental Health Problems Are People with DID Likely to Have?
In addition, people with Dissociative Disorders can have other diagnosable mental health problems at the same time. Typically these include depression, post traumatic stress disorder, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive symptoms, phobias, and self-harming behavior such as cutting, eating disorders, and high-risk sexual behaviors. Although they may get expert treatment for the more common secondary issue, if the dissociative disorder is not addressed, recovery is generally short lived.

One last thing about the trailer, before I finally shut the hell up about it.

My knowledge of Japanese societal norms is minimal, so if something here’s wrong, let me know.

Here, Iruma refers to Gonta as simply that: Gonta. No honoriffic. Just Gonta.

Now, let’s look at someone else who doesn’t use honoriffics: Hajime Hinata.

The first words Hinata says here are: Oi, Koizumi. Not Oi, Mahiru, but Oi, Koizumi.

Over in Japan, classmates are usually referred to by last name, unless if you’re on friendly terms. For example, someone like Ibuki uses first names: she probably thinks of everyone as friends, because that’s kind of her style.

She also uses the suffix -chan (ちゃん) to address everyone, even boys. (-chan is primarily for girls.) You can see so in her drama CD here.

Now let’s take Ouma, who also uses some names in the trailer.

You see that? That’s right, it’s ちゃん. -chan. Probably used because it’s cutesy. (Kizakura refers to Chisa as Chisa-chan in the anime when arguing with Juzo.)

But Ouma’s using last names. Harukawa-chan, and Akamatsu-chan respectively.

So that begs the question: Why is Iruma on a first name basis? Is it just her thing? Or, maybe, does she consider Gonta, or perhaps all of her classmates as friends?

I’m kinda disappointed at how Junko is using a brainwashing technique to create the remnants of despair.

I thought it was her charm, her sly personality and her way with words that convinced them to spread despair. I thought she went to the root of everyone’s personality and stirred up the despair that she said in sdr2 was already there in the first place. I mean she even did that for Izuru!! She convinced him using words alone!! “Feel bored with your life? I’ll give you something exciting to look forward to. Join despair!” THAT’S what she did to Izuru why can’t she do it to everyone else??

For example Tsumiki, in sdr2 she said Junko was the only one who accepted her as she was. So I thought it went down like this “No one accepts you in your life? I’ll accept you. Hell, I’ll even LOVE you. Join despair.” Even if not true, doesn’t matter. She uses their weak points in order to make them despair and manipulate them at her will. That’s how leaders usually work, through charm and persuasion. But brainwashing through a videotape???

Honestly, I feel her character is being diminished and reduced… I just hope the next episodes aren’t half as bad as they are being lately (or were from the very beginning actually).

Aedion Ashryver awkward as all fuck reactions to Lysandra:

(AKA resons why I ship them)

Example N.1

Aedion said “I think she finds everyone but Aelin boring. Biggest disappointment of my life” A lie, and he didn’t know why he said it.

OKAYOKAYOKAY. Why did I find this little thingy strange? Because Mister Ashryver has no brain to mouth filter 99% of the time, unless he has to lie in order to protect Aelin or himself. So really, who are you lying to? Rowan can’t be because he is, and in this point of the story particulary,dense as a fucking brick to hiw own situation and even if not he only has eyes for his fireheart unless he has to drop personal information on people like a bomb. So really, Aedion dear, don’t lie to yourself you like the girl (and this was immediately after he says to Rowan that Lysandra is “ not bad to look at” oh really). And c’mon, the first thing Aedion’s woman should be is loyal to his queen and Lysandra is A+++ in that field.

Example N.2

“That is what I am going to find one day.”

“A gorgeous Fae Warrior?” Aedion said, shifting a bit.

That “shifting a bit” is hilarious because it makes me think that he is nervous, like this conversation takes him out of his comfort zone and IT’S ADORABLE. And yes, I bet that in his mind he was like I AM TOO A GORGEOUS FAE WARRIOR NOTICE ME omg I can’t.(and really Lysandra too thinks he is a hottie with the only downside of looking too much like Aelin)Damn it i ship it!

Take your Daughter to work day

Peter gave Wade’s life stability. Stability to the point where he was able to pull his life together and raise his daughter the way a father should.

Peter and Wade raised Ellie as best as two assholes who knew nothing about children could, it went surprisingly well considering the circumstances.

With the aid of his newfound family, Peter’s constant insistence and a couple of months of being REALLY REALLY good and SURPRISINGLY HELPFUL, Wade was finally admitted to the Avengers. He was still a crude asshole, but he’s gotten better to the point that people not only tolerate him, they’re actually starting to begrudgingly grow fond of him.

While Deadpool and Black Widow had much differing opinions on the matter of subtlety, they can often be found cleaning daggers together and discussing different means of assassination.

When Wade calls it “ASS-ASS-ination” her punch is mostly to hide the small smile on her face.

Tony is definitely the type of man who enjoys a crude joke every once in a while and Wade can actually be funny sometimes. They’ve banded together once or twice to play pranks on Steve.

Clint and Deadpool have worked together before and work together well now, some may even call them “bros”.

Bruce still avoids Wade for the most part, but he appreciates how the former-mercenary is improving and how he acts around Peter. Its actually pretty cute the way Wade leans his head on Peter’s shoulder when they sit next to each other, or how Peter has to qualms about sitting on Wade’s back whenever the former-merc hogs the couch.

Steve is starting to see Wade’s humanity. He’s glad for him and considers Wade to be annoying, but a worthy comrade.

Wade tries to teach Thor pop culture. They’re currently half-way through the 1980’s.

The Avengers all knew that Wade had a daughter but it was in a distant sort of way.

Wade couldn’t go on a mission because his daughter had a soccer game. Ellie had a dance recital. Ellie is going to girl-scout camp (Tony ordered a massive amount of girl-scout cookies from the girl). Sometimes the merc-turned-hero would remark about something cute Ellie did. When they traveled Wade would always pick up a souvenir for her at a street vendor.

They all sent birthday and Christmas gifts to her of course, and Steve once signed a plastic model of his shield for her when Wade brought it in, but they were a step-removed from her life. It was necessary for her to have a normal childhood. Wade didn’t even carry a picture of her, too much of a security risk.

Among all of them it was probably Black Widow who had the most interaction with the girl. Peter and Wade would always chicken out whenever Ellie was having “girl problems” and one of them would always frantically call Natasha.

In retrospect this probably wasn’t the smartest idea, because most of her advice to the child involved punching, stabbing or subterfuge.

Ellie was sent to the principle’s office more than once because of aunty Natasha’s advice.

So it was a surprise for everyone when the child suddenly showed up at the tower. Apparently it was “take your daughter to work day” at Ellie’s school.

Which meant there was a small curly-haired girl silently coloring in the conference room when Steve called a meeting.

Tony was outside of the door to the conference room, flattening himself against the wall, peeking in suspiciously at the young girl. When Bruce walked down the hall towards the conference room, Tony grabbed his arm and pulled him back before he could walk in.

“Hey hey hey Bruce” Tony pulled the other man to his side and whispered to him.

“What is it Tony?”

“There is a KID in the conference room.”

Bruce peeks in at the child “I know what children look like Tony, what did you think it was an elf?”

“No WHY is there a kid in the conference room.”

Bruce shrugged. Tony stroked his beard in thought.

“Old flames used to bring kids once in a while, claiming I was the dad and demanding child support, but how the hell did she get past security?”

“…Tony I think you’re over-reacting.”

“You’re under-reacting! There is probably a crazed one-night-stand loose in the building! This is way worse than Loki! Loki never demanded child support! this-”

Just then Natasha sauntered past them and into the conference room, despite Tony’s whispered pleas.

“Hey kiddo…” she gently mussed Ellie’s pigtails and sat next to the girl.

“I’m young, not deaf, you two can come out now.” Ellie called out to the doorway without looking up from her sketchbook.

Tony and Bruce sheepishly looked into the conference room.

Just then Steve came in past Tony and Bruce into the conference room.

“Ok team we have a busy day of-”

His sentence was cut off by two skinny little arms wrapping around his waist in an ecstatic hug.

“EEEEE Captain America!!” Ellie squealed “Thank you for signing my limited edition Captain America Shield!! ALL the other kids in the neighborhood were SOOO jealous! I have all of your action figures! I have a Hawkeye figure too! Dad doesn’t have a figure yet so I repainted a Spiderman figure to look like him! Now I need another Spiderman figure… And its so cool to meet you!!”

“Uhhhh….” Steve awkwardly pats Ellie’s shoulders. “…Its nice to meet you too?” Why is there a kid in the conference room?

Natasha smiles condescendingly at Steve. “Awww how cute” she titters at him.

Steve gives her an unmistakable look of “Shut up” over Ellie’s curly head.

Its then that Clint makes his entrance. “Hey guys what’s the-” he spots Ellie hugging Captain America.

“Oh my gosh that’s so cute” he gushes.

“I know right?” Natasha agrees while she takes a picture on her cell phone.

“Friends I heard that there was a meeting called, I have come forth as instructed-” Thor walks into the room and pauses at the sight.

“Good friend,” Thor smiles teasingly at Steve and the preteen wrapped tightly around his midsection “Tis quite the belt thou wearest”

Steve glares at him.

Thor smiles wider.

Deadpool finally makes his appearance, entering the room with two cans of soda “Hey Ellie Tony is out of sierra mist so I got you Sprite and Mountain dew, Sprite is like sierra mist and-” He looks at his daughter hugging Captain America.

“Oh my gosh that is so fucking cute” He also pulls out his cellphone and takes a picture.

“You know her?” Bruce asks.

“YUP!” Deadpool bends down and presents his daughter with his arms, like a model presenting a prize on a game show “THIS IS MY KID!!!”

“Oh thank god there’s no crazy one-night-stand in the tower” Tony whispers to himself.

“HIII!!!” Ellie Shrieks against Steve’s perfectly toned abs.

Deadpool laughs fondly at his daughter. “Honey don’t you think its time to let go of Mr. America?”

“Nope!” Ellie squishes her face against Steve’s stomach “I’ve decided this is where I live now”

Clint is giggling so hard that his face is turning red.

“How you gonna eat baby-girl?” Deadpool puts his hands on his hips in a motherly way and tries his best not to giggle.

A thoughtful look passes over Ellie’s face before a look of seriousness and determination. “There will be sacrifices” she says seriously “And you may have to hand-feed me”

“Phhht yeah ok” Deadpool covers his mouth with a hand. “Come on baby girl”

He pokes Ellie in the ribs on both sides, she squeals and her arms jerk back from Steve’s waist to protect her ticklish ribs. Wade uses her distraction to quickly pick her up and sling her over his shoulder.

“CURSES!” Ellie shakes her fist like a foiled cliche villain “MY ONE WEAKNESS!!”

Wade plops her down in the chair by her abandoned sketchbook and sits next to her.

“Er…Uh…” Steve is still visibly confused. “Right I called a meeting!”

“A meeting to show off thine belt?” Thor interjects.

Steve shoots Thor a dirty look “No Thor. Not to show off my bel- She’s not a belt!”

Ellie gives Thor a high-five.

Thor feels very accomplished at this small gesture.

That’s right, Thor is “hip” with the young ones of Midgard, he is “down with it” as the young people here say.

He can “get jiggy” with his “bad self”.

Whatever in Odin’s name that means….

Steve is starting to get a headache. “look its not too serious now, but it will take at least a couple of us so I’m asking for volunteers to-”

Deadpool pops up from his seat “I’m not so sure I can go!” He points at his daughter “Secretary write down my itinerary!” Ellie takes up her sketchbook and a couple of markers.

“First and fore-most!” Deadpool waives his finger about “Ellie has a piano lesson this afternoon!”

Ellie pouts but continues to scribble on the notepad. “ugh.. piano” she whispers.

“Peter is working on a paper so of course he will need our help!”

Ellie looks up at her father confused “You can’t science…”

“No but I can cook while he sciences!” Wade counters.

“ah.” She nods. That makes way more sense.

“Ellie also needs to do her homework!”

Ellie grumbles.

“Also later I plan on breaking into the zoo with my daughter.”

Ellie perks up “Can we pet penguins again!?”

“sure thing sweet-pea” Wade pats her on the head.

“yay!”

Deadpool whirls back to his daughter “Now read me back my itinerary secretary!”

Ellie looks down at her sketchbook “I didn’t write down the itinerary, I DID draw a picture of Iron man touching Captain America’s butt”

She handed her dad the picture of a scribbly Captain America bending down like pin-up girl, butt perky and prominent while Iron-man touches the butt.

Deadpool looked at the picture for a couple of seconds.

“GENIUS!!” he yelled “THIS IS THE KIND OF THING I LIKE TO SEE!! YOU MISSY ARE GETTING A RAISE! INSPIRED! REVOLUTIONARY”

Wade addressed the rest of the avengers “Everyone follow Ellie’s example she knows how its done”

Wade proceeded to use a dagger to pin the drawing to the wall the same way normal people put their kid’s drawing on the fridge with magnets.

“Thats not staying here” Tony tried to insist.

Clint’s head hit the table he was laughing so hard.

“Ah ha!” Thor Exclaimed “This drawing, Steve is ‘getting jiggy’ with his ‘bad self’ is he not?”

“I kind of like it there” Natasha nods approvingly at the drawing “I say we keep it”

Bruce looked thoughtfully at the drawing “I’ll admit the kid has a talent for drawing butts….”

“OH FOR THE LOVE OF-!” Steve started to yell.

Just then something green and slimey thudded against the window, it snarled as it slid down the glass, leaving green goo in its wake.

“I was trying to tell you about the mutant blobs running amok but no!” Steve threw his hands in the air exasperated “You all had to talk about butts!!”

“I see no problem with the topic of butts” Natasha deadpanned.

Clint gave Natasha a high-five

“Just will someone go outside with me to help me deal with this!!???” Steve yelled.

In the end the afternoon was spent killing small blobs of goo that had multiplied quickly and now infested the city.

Ellie grabbed one of Tony’s vintage Baby Ruth baseball bats and helped, smashing little blobs of goo while her dad cheered. When she tried to return the gooey and scratched memorabilia Tony said she could keep it.

Score!

She also missed her piano lesson.

Double score!

They went home, cleaned off all of the goo off themselves and made an enormous mess in the kitchen trying to bake a cake for an overworked Peter.

They ended up ordering out.

Peter took a break from his work to eat with his family and they told him about their day filled with butts and goo monsters.

"How could anybody ever see me and Lucas as a couple?"--Maya Hart

…but it just stood out to me. In Yearbook when Maya and Lucas are voted favorite couple Maya says “How could anybody ever see me and LUCAS as a couple?” When I rewatched the episode it just kind of stood out to me that she called him Lucas instead of Ranger Rick, Huckleberry, Hopalong, etc.

I kinda just feel like if she was actually annoyed because it was stupid or found it ridiculous she would have said something a bit more sarcastic. She was just kind of surprised didn’t really show much to good or bad, just surprised.

We all know Maya has liked Lucas for a while, so it’s no surprise that she wasn’t disgusted by this. What IS surprising is that she DIDN’T cover up with insults, sarcasm, humor, etc. She used to try to hide most of her feelings from everyone for Riley’s benefit, but something just in the way she said it here. She was surprised, a little confused and caught off guard, but she DIDN’T say something like “Ew me and Huckleberry as a couple?!”(for example). She just asked unsure because…everyone sees them as a couple? That’s news to her. She thought they were all gunning for the Rucas summer rain, but they were actually shipping “Lucaya Fiyah”.

Basically the fact that she said LUCAS instead of a nickname, how she didn’t make a joke or use sarcasm, how she didn’t turn off her feelings for Riley’s benefit just for a split second. And how she wasn’t disgused or annoyed, but simply surprised/shocked and confused.
