we only said goodbye with words

A/N: although I loved ep 2 I feel like we deserved a goodbye scene (and I am trash) and so this is my shitty contribution to the jonsa fandom. 

Sansa enters his solar without knocking. She had practically run there, after seeing the horses saddled and the men reunited in the courtyard, waiting for their King.

anonymous asked:

Dating Katsuki would be like: headacanons

Hi dear!! Ehm, since your request was very, very, very general I don’t know if they’re good. I believe that every person/character shows different sides and act differently based on who they are interacting with. That said, I’ve tried to be as general as I could, but I don’t know if I’ve done a good job. He could result slightly contradictory in some points too. I hope you can still enjoy it!

Have a nice day!



  • The first problem is getting Bakugou to date you. Not gonna lie, it is very difficult, since he’s generally uninterested in sexual and romantic relationships. So first, you have to make him recognize you as a follow, existent human being. Secondo, you have to gain his friendship and trust (it’s gonna take long). Third, make him fell in love with you, and it’s gonna be hard so you need a lot of patience.


  • Once you’re dating, don’t expect him to change dramatically. He’ s the usual swearing, rough, confident and blunt guy.
  • He’s the type to use pet names with you, but he often alternates or mixes insults with them. “Stop being so retarded babe.” “Stupide babe.”

anonymous asked:

Do you ship jalec cause you hate Malec?

Hi! No, not at all.

I don’t ship Jalec because I hate Malec, nor do I feel the need to hate on Malec to justify my love for Jalec.

I don’t even particularly hate it, to be honest. I’m just not feeling it. I mean, I started watching the show because of cute Malec gifsets (I think it was around the time 1x07-ish was airing on tv?), and I’ve said this a thousand times, by the 4th episode I was like ‘’da fuq? Where did all this Jalec gloriousness come from? Why are these two in love? Why is nobody talking about this?’’ And that’s how my Jalec love started, all their backstory and angst and Alec’s unrequited love but also Jace’s heart-eyes-that-I-still-don’t-get made them my otp.

Pretty soon I did start disliking Malec cause back in season 1 Magnus was acting all entitled to Alec and there was that cringeworthy moment with Alec asking Magnus what he wanted in return for helping Izzy and Magnus said ‘’you’’ and like…ugh. But no, I don’t hate them. I think they’ve shaped up to be your run of the mill insta-love, and on that front Clace is worse (Clace makes me cringe, tbqh). And the writing for Jalec itself has been horrid at times. Like with the fact that Alec can feel it when Jace cuts his hand but Alec could be facing a troll and three Balrogs and Jace would be mooning over Clary. But then you get Jace doing everything in his power to reach sleeping beauty and ~bring him to life and…yeah. Shitty writing all around.

If we’re gonna look at the writing I think every shipper can find a gazillion reasons to ship their otp and a gazillion reasons not to. It’s just that kind of thing :P (Which makes me so mad cause I love the actors and characters so much and the show could!be!so!great!).

Therefore, I just happened to love Jalec before Malec even had a chance with me. Even though I started watching the show for Malec in the first place. And right now I’m okay with Malec (’’i’m okay’’ = I tolerate it cause well, they do have a lot of issues - it’s just that everything in this show has issues aka bad writing, so I can’t really base my dislike on actual canon cause actual canon fucks everything up, pretty much), they’ve been kinda okay this season, but it’s still insta love and needs sooo much development, whereas Jalec already HAS all the development in the world and the writers just aren’t doing anything with it - until they remember to re-enact Sleeping Beauty and kill us all, that is.

Resistance is Futile

“I’m alive” he says holding out his arm

“See, I have a pulse,
My skin is warm”

Sitting on the floor
As the memo’s of little pink
Pieces of paper
Rise higher and higher
Bills to be cut off and red notices
Doctors appointments not to be kept
Centrelink lines not to be stood in

The world does not know
How hard it is
To get up in the morning
And have to open the front door
And have to walk down the street
And have to smile a plastic smile
And nod with a puppets head

“I am alive” he says
“I had all my dreams
Squashed, ripped from my arms”
Holding out his arm
The bruises
Dark against the pale

“I am alive, isn’t that enough?” he asks
“What more do they want” he asks
“A side show act,
A grand performance of existence
Pieces of paper to prove my worth,
I am alive
What more could they possibly want?”

They want your blood
They want your soul
They want you to stop asking questions
They want you to bend your back
They want you to sit
In an office
And let the machine bleed you dry
Of any creative thought.

“I am alive” his voice gets smaller
And smaller and further away
“I survived, and I am alive”
“Isn’t this enough?” his voice now
Muffled so quiet, it is almost gone
Swallowed under the weight of the machine.

I have a headcanon that Erik didn’t just learn magic and ventriloquy during his time with the traveling attractions and gypsies. He actually learned a ton of the side show acts.

Which means Erik can not only throw his voice around a room and do magic tricks- he can also juggle, eat fire, juggle fire (Erik loves acts that involve fire), walk on stilts, balance on a tightrope, pull off some impressive bull whip tricks, and swallow a sword (but he doesn’t like to do this anymore because he doesn’t want to hurt his voice).

Erik also dabbled in contortion and acrobatics but he preferred to stick with the more dangerous looking acts.

Sometimes when Christine is sad Erik will pull out an old circus trick to cheer her up. She doesn’t allow him to show off his fire tricks anymore though, not since he caught the drapes on fire.

It falls to each of us to be those anxious, jealous guardians of our democracy; to embrace the joyous task we’ve been given to continually try to improve this great nation of ours.  Because for all our outward differences, we all share the same proud title:  Citizen.

Ultimately, that’s what our democracy demands.  It needs you.  Not just when there’s an election, not just when your own narrow interest is at stake, but over the full span of a lifetime.  If you’re tired of arguing with strangers on the internet, try to talk with one in real life.  If something needs fixing, lace up your shoes and do some organizing.  If you’re disappointed by your elected officials, grab a clipboard, get some signatures, and run for office yourself.  Show up.  Dive in.  Persevere.  Sometimes you’ll win.  Sometimes you’ll lose.  Presuming a reservoir of goodness in others can be a risk, and there will be times when the process disappoints you.  But for those of us fortunate enough to have been a part of this work, to see it up close, let me tell you, it can energize and inspire.  And more often than not, your faith in America – and in Americans – will be confirmed.


I think that’s what Derek’s going through, with the werewolf thing. He’s trying to figure out, “Who am I when I’m not a werewolf anymore.” - Tyler Hoechlin [x]

Never play alone

Lazy day at the cave Jason spots Tim piling marshmallows into his mouth, and this loser is so fascinated that when he gets back to whatever hideout of the week, he’s curious enough to try to find out how many he could fit. Raiding the stockpile he knows that Red Robin not so secretly keeps in his more frequently used haunts for a bag of marshmallows, stopping by his room for a hand held mirror. He plops himself on his worn couch, mirror perched on the coffee table.

Three is fine.

Four still in the clear.

Six it’s a tight fit.

Eight his mouth gapes open, saliva is dripping down his chin. Jason grunts in frustration, Tim somehow managed at least twelve of these damn things! He was not one to be outdone he’s sucked enough dick he should definitely be able to fit more mama didn’t raise no quitter! 

Pressing on Jason takes a deep breath through his nose before cramming in more.

 He makes it to eleven when his comm beeps, Oracles voice coming through requesting his help on an investigation in his part of town. Jason attempts to remove the marshmallows to answer, only to find that they melted together forming one massive ball that feel fused to his tongue and teeth.

Grunts and gurgles the only sounds that can escape. Oracles calls growing with worry the longer he doesn’t respond. Jason is ripping out chunks of goo at this point getting it everywhere, he’s pretty much wearing it now. He catches Babs hurriedly saying she’s sending someone to his location, and absolute horror floods his system. Nothing could be worse than if one of the bats found him in this situation. 

The shame!

The utter humiliation! 

The great Red Hood nearly taken down by goddamn balls of fluff!

He would have to move. 

Leave and never come back, cut all contact.

Get a whole new identity, change his name to something they would never expect then flee the country. Yes! He could go to south america, give up the vigilante life so never to risk running in to them. He saw in a movie that Roy had dragged him out to see that the hero quit the life and turned to farming as an escape. Jason could do that! Drop everything and become a farmer! Or well…maybe not exactly a farmer, maybe raise llamas, no alpacas! Become an alpaca farmer! raiser?? herder??? whatever.

  Yornima Porkine the alpaca farmer is a perfect cover! 

Jason isn’t entirely sure how exactly you raise alpacas, but he could probably manage….but what if he cant, and he can’t make any money. What if they took the farm? he would have no way to make a living! Jason wouldn’t even be able to access his old accounts Bats would definitely be watching those. He’ll have to live on the streets, do some side show act to try to rake in some change to keep from starving. Dancing! No, Jason couldn’t dance to save his life. What if- the rest of the thought is cut off when the window to his right shatters, Nightwing smoothly tumbling in to a crouch taking in the surroundings. 

Closing the distance between them Nightwing takes in Jason’s appearance. What a sight he probably was, on his knees, marshmallows scattered everywhere, couch and coffee table pushed askew during his struggles, face flushed covered in white sticky goo, tears mixing with saliva.

One final cough dislodges the last of the marshmallows, falling to the wooden floor with a wet squelch.

Nightwing simply watching, silence stretching on.

“We’re going to pretend I was just giving head instead of what actually happened right?” Jason tries, voice hoarse.

Finally a snicker slips from Dick’s lips, turning into a full body laugh bracing his hands on his knees, bringing him to just the right level to outright laugh in Jason’s face.

“Not a chance!” Dick manages to choke out.

Heat fills his cheeks to the tips of his ears. Jason is about to angrily reply when cackling comes over his comm.

“Well looks like we found our Christmas card!” Oracle wheezes out No the cameras built into their masks! The rest following with comments. 

“Congratulations your place as a fool has been secured” 

“Master Jason! One child cramming food into their trap is enough thank you!”

“How many did you fit? My record is fifteen.”

“If you were that hungry Ma co-” “Get out of here Clark!”

Groaning Jason buries his face in his hands, laughter ringing in his ear.

The next day Dick receives a call from Roy, asking why he had to talk Jason down from moving to south america to raise alpacas. The only response he gets is near maniacal laugh through the phone and a picture message of Jason lying on the floor in full gear sans mask, surrounded by marshmallows with a little sign resting against his stomach with “I PLAYED CHUBBY BUNNY ALONE″ printed on it. 

i want to write a soul-crushing slow burn 2Bx9S angst fic but i have like no energy/motivation and also i’m probably too upset about their canon relationship to be creative right now

no sympathy anymore

you know what at this point im done. I’m done being sympathetic to the clexa/lexa stans. i draw the line at hating on real people and thinking it’s justified because you’re arguing for the lgbt community. YOU’RE NOT! I don’t give a fuck if bob was right about lexa or not, i don’t give a fuck if it’s taken out of context. he could have said he fucking hates lexa for all i care AND YOU STILL WOULDN’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO GO AND SEND HATE. you disgust me beyond words right have ruined the fandom.

a/n- I apologize for the wait. This one was in my ask box very early Monday morning… and I almost ignored it. The reason I write in Finn’s voice so much is because Rae’s is too much like my own. I wrote this and rewrote it and hated it and it feels so sloppy and disjointed. Forgive me, if this isn’t what you wanted but it comes from a very personal place (which if why, I suspect, it’s so sloppy.

Putting some TW warning out there before we begin: food talk and ED.

When you’re fat, food is your enemy.

Not just an enemy, Rae decides. A partner in crime. A side show act that people pay a nickel to see.

It’s the knowledge that people are watching you when you eat. Watching you stuff food into your already fat fucking face like you’re the grossiest, most fascinating thing on the TV. Rae realizes all of this when she’s 13 and catches a mn staring at her as she chews a mouthful of spaghetti. In a second, she sees what he sees- fat rolls, double chin, another heartattack waiting to happen. She puts down her fork and doesn’t finish her dinner (it will be years before she eats in public again).

It’s a bad lesson to learn, but Rae find out the the only acceptable way to be fat is to tell others you’re on a diet. Always on a diet even if you never lose a pound. If you can convince them you hate your body as much they do, they the thought of touching your own flesh repulses you, they’ll let your pass because at least you acknowledge that you’re disgusting.

She’s 14 and at Chloe’s and the thought of eating with her fit, trim family makes her skin crawl.

“I’m on a diet,” Rae tells Chloe’s mum who beams at her as if she has just discovered the cure for AIDS (this is the same woman who has slim 14 year old Chloe on a strict 1000 calorie diet).

It becomes part of her shame. At 15, Rae can’t eat in front of anyone, not even her mum. She picks and nibbles at dinner and binges on sweets when she’s alone. It’s not the people can’t clearly see she eats (anyone with eyes could take in her girth and guess that). It’s in her fat face and fat stomach and fat things but Rae will be damned if she’ll give anyone the entertainment of feeding the whale.

At the hospital, she meets Tix who hates to be watched, too. They get trays of food and never eat. Tix excercises the calories off that she might have inhaled and Rae inhales the sweets her mum sneaks her.

Things get better when she gets hom for a bit. Linda and Karim are never around so Rae is almost on a normal eating schedule. Then she starts dating Finn and it gets bad again. They spend loads of time together and her eating is off but it’s worse because Finn is always suggesting dinner. After the pub, after the cinema, after bowling. She anxious because she has to say no and every time she does, he nose crinkles like he doesn’t get it. If he ever sees her eating, it’s over. Whatever spell he’s under will lift the minute he sees he put something in her fat mouth.

She’s in a state when he suggests she tell her mum she’s going to Chloe’s for the weekend because he’s got an empty. She wanted to because the thought of Finn Nelson naked all weekend makes her hooha jump for joy and her thighs clench on their own but when she cools down a bit, she realizes it means not just sexy stuff but day-to-day stuff like eating (she also realizes the possibilty of him seeing her naked in a properly lit room but she can only process one crisis at a time).

“How long have you and Finn being dating, Rae?’ Kester asks at their session the same day. She was in a right state when she brough it up and now she regrets it.

"About 10 months.”

“10 months and he hadn’t seen you eat? You two don’t go to dinner? He doesn’t ask you to dinner?”

He did. After every fucking date. Rae’s exuses were plentiful… tired, headache, cramps, horny, let’s meet the gant, let’s go to basement, the pub, yours, mine, the back seat. “He does. I just say no.”

“10 months and-”

“Look,” she snaps. “Chloe hasn’t seen me eat since I was 14 and I haven’t a decent meal with my mum in the same amount of time. Let it go.”

She has a plan for the weekend. Lots of sex and sneaking away. It doesn’t work as well as she hopes because her mum and Karim have taken off, too, so there went any excuse for nipping home.

She avoids dinner on Friday by showing up late. Breakfast is skipped in favor of back to back blowjobs (Finn promptly passes out after the second) and she lets him finger her under the duvet to get through lunch but by 3 he’s starving. She is, too.

“Let’s see if the gang wants to go to the chippy?”

She shrugs, though about saying fuck it and let him she her naked but she’s got a routine down at the chippy. Order something small. Feed some of it to Finn, chuck a bit at Chop, unload the rest on Archie (the boys never understand why they’re so damn full when they leave). She’s half way though her routine, about to throw something at Chop, when Finn catches her hand. He doesn’t say anything, just looses her hand, fries falling back to her plate.


Her face is flushed and her skin starts itching. W-H-Y-? But he doesn’t respond.

“Let’s head out, yeah?” Chop suggests.

“Nah, we gotta go,” Finn answers, grabbing Rae’s hand. He ignores Chop’s jeering and the ride home is silent. He heads to the kitchen, pointing to a chair for Rae to sit in at the kitchen table. He’s back a moment later, plopping a sandwich in front of her. “Eat.”

“I’m not hungry,” tumbles out her automatic response.

“You haven’t eaten at all today. In fact, you never eat, not that i’ve seen.”

Of course Finn Nelson, Mr. Fucking Observant himself would notice something everyone else in the universe was blind to. Rae turns her head from him and stays silent.

“Why?” is all he can manage.

“You’re overreacting.”

“Then eat.”


“Then there is a problem.”

“There’s not.”

“Then just eat the damn sandwich.”

In a fit of anger she picks up the sandwich and takes a bite. She only manages two chews before she realizes he’s looking at her and her eyes well, throat closes. The next thing she’s fully aware of is the bitter taste of stomach acid as she heaves into the toliet. Finn’s crouched behind her, hand holding her hair back. When the heaves turn to sobs, he rests his forehead between her shoulder blades. She tries to explain her feeling but when words fail her, she spreads her arms as if to say Do you finally see? Do you finally get that I’m fat and mental and not good enough for you?

“Talk to me, Rae,” he pleads.

“I can’t.”

“You can. It’s me, Rae. It’s just me. You can tell me anything.”

She steps away from him, hands raised to stop him from touching her. “You don’t get it Finn. I’m terrified that one day I’m going to say something… and it’s just going to be too much for you to handle.”

“I’m not going anywhere. You can’t make me leave or love you less. Not in a million years,” he slowly takes her hand, ready to let go if she jerks back because she looks wounded and hurt and he can feel little fissures start in his heart. He measures his words carefully and find nothing will come out. So he flips he hand over and very slowly traces out what he feels I-L-O-V-E-Y-O-U.

“I’m-” Fat? Mental? “- a mess, Finn. A real one.”


She tries to shake him off but he doesn’t let go this time. “No, don’t. Don’t pull away from me, Rae. I love you. I love all of you even the parts you don’t.”

“I’m not good enough for you.” They both wince at the words.

Finn’s mouth opens and closes. He’s floundering. “You’re not serious. You can’t be. You… Rae, all I want is you and I sure as hell don’t deserve you. I have problems, too and you overlook them, don’t you?”

“What problems?” She demands.

“I’m closed off, for one. Grumpy. I act like an ass to people I don’t know. And I spend 98% of my time writing things on your skin instead of telling you the things that you obviously need to hear. I fucking love you, Rachel. Every bit. There’s nothing about you I don’t want.”

“But…” she shifts under his stare. “I love all those things about you. Even you being grumpy.”

He searches her face, his fingers tracing over palm G-E-T-I-T?

She supposed she was starting to understand.

He leaves her alone as she washes her face and brushes her teeth. When she gets downstairs, there’s a new sandwich on the table. She stops short.

“Listen,” Finn shruggs his jacket on. “I"m going to nip down to the store and grab some more drinks. Can you throw that away for me?”

He’s out the door and Rae is bursting around the seams with love. When he gets back, the sandwich is gone and he doesn’t ask if he ate it or threw it away.

(It will be a few more months before they share a meal. It will be in Kester’s office and she’ll sit between Finn and Kester and cry the entire time. One day, though, Finn will come home and dinner is on the table and they eat together and she won’t cry but he’ll have to slip off to the loo, turn on the faucet and cry himself.)

a/n- I try to read over and catch little mistakes… but I can’t read this again, so sorry. I’m going to go lay in a corner now.


Fix Up these Fixer-Uppers

When Kristoff brings Anna to the trolls, they think the pair are a romantic couple, and the two deny being one. The trolls sing “Fixer Upper,” in which they ask Anna what is turning her off from dating Kristoff and list his major flaws. Even though Kristoff protests that Anna is engaged to someone else, the trolls go ahead and try to marry them, which completely baffles the couple.

Now while this is meant to be another romantic song about the man opposite Anna, it is the complete antithesis of “Love Is An Open Door.” The latter song is perfect and in it, Hans creates an artificial image of himself by acting perfect as he forces himself towards Anna. But in “Fixer Upper,” Kristoff doesn’t push himself onto Anna (he doesn’t even sing), his family does, and by pointing out everything that is wrong with him (or so they think :)). When they hear that Anna is engaged, they think she is also a “fixer upper” who needs to get rid of her fiancé and be with Kristoff. This song is not perfect, interruptions occur, and there are numerous trolls (and Olaf) who sing during the song.

As the song progresses, it becomes clear that the trolls are saying that no one is perfect; everyone has their own sets of flaws, which makes them fixer uppers. But despite their flaws, a man and a woman (in this case, Kristoff and Anna) can bring out the best in each other if they share similarities and differences that can complement the other person. If they match up well in these ways, then a bond of love can and will make them stronger. The trolls can obviously sense that with Kristoff and Anna. Kristoff had claimed in previous scenes that the trolls are “love experts,” and this entire song proves it. ;)

Overall, despite the messiness of the song and the trolls naming his faults, they are trying to show Anna that this is the real deal with Kristoff. Even though he is not perfect, this is what is real and honest about him…and the real overthrows the artificial. So while Anna initially thinks she is in love with Hans, especially during and after their duet, it is clear that, at the end of “Fixer Upper,” she has started to fall for Kristoff (and he has more with her).

Interestingly enough, when Bulda tells Anna that “People make bad choices…true love brings out the best,” she is inadvertently telling Anna how to solve Elsa’s problem. Elsa made a bad choice because she was scared, and the way to solve the problem and get everyone to see Elsa’s good side was to show the act of true love. Anna’s bond with Elsa is one of familial love, and hers with Kristoff is one of romantic love. With these different bonds of love, Anna can truly bring out the best in both Kristoff and Elsa.

It’s also interesting to note that “Fixer Upper” is the last song in the film. Immediately afterwards, the film becomes more serious and dramatic, starting right when Anna grows even colder and Pabbie tells her she will die from her frozen heart unless she is involved in an act of true love. As Anna begins to succumb to the curse, Elsa is captured and taken back to Arendelle, where she is imprisoned. Then once Anna returns, Hans reveals his true nature at last self and leaves Anna to die. So when “Fixer Upper” ends with Anna growing even colder, it acts as a signal to the audience to be prepared for the more serious moments that are about to come before the movie ends.
