Honestly I don’t get all these bare-minimum breadcrumb gay moments in movies because, like, homophobes will be like “the what? gay?” and boycott the movie over Craig Ferguson The Viking saying “ha ha that’s why I never got married! That and one other reason!” so like, if you’re in for a penny go in for a pound, clearly you want to tap into the lucrative market for content with same-sex relationships, and the Homophobe Market is going to pitch a hissy fit and boycott whether you toss in a few breadcrumbs or the entire loaf. Anybody who’s gonna boycott over gay stuff is probably already boycotting stuff where characters just wink-wink-nudge-nudge but never explicitly confirm anything so there’s no reason to hesitate. You could put in an entire gay wedding and it would be no different, from a homophobe’s point of view, than having a woman in your movie roll her eyes at a male character’s advances and say “sorry, you’re not my type if-you-know-what-i-mean!”
It’s like how my old high school marked you as tardy starting from one minute after the beginning of the school day (7:46 AM) through to 10:30 AM, at which point you’d be marked absent. The punishment was the same whether you arrived at 7:46 or 10:29, so if you were running late and couldn’t make it to school by 7:45, you’d essentially been given a free pass to skip first and second period and go get breakfast at McDonald’s because you’re already in the same amount of trouble regardless of when you actually show up, so long as you do so within the next two and a half hours
Don’t skip school, kids, but hollywood, take note, go big or go home on the gay stuff because the homophobes are already boycotting the movie even if you just put in a blink-and-you-miss-it nudge-nudge hint-hint background reference and you could be making a lot more money by giving the Yellow Ranger a gf in the sequel
jonas is not dead. he’s just been writing anti-capitalist posts on tumblr.
magnus is looking up “how to support your lesbian girlfriend” on the internet
mahdi is binge-watching the great british bake off
even is getting very excited at the new alien movie
chris is back from berlin and she started posting wild stories about her germanic adventures on facebook (everyone thinks she’s being funny again but she’s actually telling the truth: she did manage to get into the berghain and it was fucking weird, man)
isak is dragging even away from makeup tutorials on youtube so they can play fifa. if even loses the game this time, he’ll have to do the dishes for a week…or order pizza every night to avoid dirtying any plates.
ok so if youre following me and haven’t watched class already, i wouldn’t blame you if you just looked away from the title lmao, i am quite forceful when it comes to this
ANYWAY, as most of you probably know already, the new series of doctor who premieres on bbc america tonight at 9/8c (if you’re in the small minority who doesn’t just download it illegally when it comes out in the uk), and that’s awesome!! but before you’re tempted to switch off your tv immediately and scream on social media - there is a new show starting straight after, and you should really watch it
class is a spin-off of doctor who set at coal hill school, with a torchwood-like premise in that there is a tear in space and time which attracts a bunch of aliens. the cast is HUGELY diverse - there’s a black girl who is super intelligent and skipped two school years, but is still vulnerable and cares deeply about her family (and calls out another character on his alien racist attitudes); a sikh boy who talks about his religion, and loses a leg in the first episode and has to get used to using a prosthetic, and a gay polish character who deals with homophobia, but that isn’t his entire character. the only two white males are in a gay relationship, and there are two interracial relationships as well.
THERE’S NOT A SINGLE STRAIGHT WHITE MALE IN THE MAIN CAST!!
also it’s not written by moffat if that helps - its written by YA author patrick ness who’s written stuff like a monster calls, more than this, the rest of us just live here, etc.
HOWEVER, at the moment, due to lack of advertising from the bbc, only being shown online and being given a shitty time slot when it actually was shown on bbc one, it is very low on viewing figures, and in danger of not being renewed for a second season. at the moment, the bbc haven’t made a decision, and it entirely depends on how well it does in america - so it’s crucial that you watch it!! even if you don’t want to actually watch the show, at least leave your tv on after dw, to boost the viewing figures. posting about in online, specifically twitter and instagram since those are the only ones the bbc care about, would also help a lot, and signing the petition for season two (that i can’t link right now as im on mobile)
(the characters i didn’t mention are brilliant as well - there’s a girl who seems like a typical hufflepuff at the start but then becomes probably the second most badass character in the show, gay alien prince who’s socially awkward and adorable but also super morally grey and pretty much a slave owner, and although he doesn’t think so he gets called out on it a lot, and an alien freedom-fighter physics teacher who has hilarious lines but also a really complex personality and backstory and gets a shit ton of character development. she’s my fave. i love her a lot.)
tl;dr: class is on bbc america tonight at 10/9c (after dw), its really good, watch it or it won’t get a second season and i’ll cry
“Growing Up a Winchester”
Sam/Dean x Sister Reader
Word Count: 3,867
Sam and Dean Winchester x Sister Reader, some Castiel x Reader
Summary: While on a long road trip to a hunt, you reminisce about your memories growing up with your brothers, from the best ones, to the worst, to the most awkward.
Warnings: Mentions of death, language, angst, light smut between Cas and the reader
Flashbacks are in italics.
You’re sitting in the backseat of the impala, looking out the window at the scenery. Dean, of course, is driving, and Sam is sitting on the passenger side, sleeping. You have a hard time sleeping in the car, so on long car trips like this, you have a hard time. Thankfully, Dean is usually always awake as well, and serves as your entertainment.
Growing up as the youngest Winchester sibling was not always fun and games, especially being a teenage girl. As much as your brothers love you, they know absolutely nothing about teenage girls. You more often than not felt like you were raising yourself, but you wouldn’t have it any other way. Your brothers are your rock, and you would never leave them.
You can barely remember the first time you’d met Dean. Your dad, John, had gotten your mother pregnant and throughout the first four years of your life, he was very in and out of your life. He’d only show up at your house once a year, normally on your birthday. He’d call on holidays, but you were too young to hold a conversation. A little after your fourth birthday, your mother had passed away from cancer. You had nothing and no one else, and your dad John came to your rescue.
“Hey, kiddo.” John had told you, picking you up from the hospital. He looked tired, the bags underneath his eyes more prominent than you had ever seen them.
“Hi.” You say quietly. You didn’t really know what was going on. All you knew was that your mommy was in a better place and you were going to live with your dad. You remember being nervous, because to you, your dad was like a stranger. You knew nothing about him.
“Do you have your stuff? You’re comin’ to stay with me and your brother, Dean. Dean’s excited to meet you, you know.”
- You are his number one kryptonite, seeing you would calm him down and remember not to be such a dick
- He TOTALLY changes around you, like??? No one would ever imagine him as a hopeless romantic but with you he’s this whole other person, without the cold hard exterior
- He’s not used to this kind side of himself that you bring out, and he does everything he can to impress you like you guys first time he did that cliche rose petals on bed with candles and music
- seeing the open tabs on his phone from wikihow saying “How not to be an asshole” ever since he liked you
- MEGA protective and always on your side, defending you to the end and god forbid someone stares at you for too long
- skips school w you, driving you to the beach to just relax, eat some food
- He could check you out foreverrrrr, and he doesn’t care if you catch him he just winks ;)))))
- mega flirt w you he’ll use the cheesiest pickup lines on you even though you’re already dating
- he has a motorcycle this is canon no it’s not im a liar but I wish it was and he’ll go for rides w you
- he loves having you on his lap even if there’s no need for it, and slides his arms around your waist
- he’s hella touchy and if he gets jealous all hell breaks loose he’ll never ever let you go and make sure to kiss you, and will definitely stare down whoever dare stare at you for more than 5 seconds
- contrary to what you’d think he’s so great at comforting you when you’re sad, you don’t even have to explain to him in the moment he’ll understand instantly and just hug you and let you cry it out
- Bryce hitting on you and Monty beating the shit out of him threatening to kill him, intimidating, “Never look at Y/N. Don’t even think of Y/N. If you get near Y/N again, the second I see you you’re dead. You hear me?”
- LATE NIGHT NETFLIX WATCHING
- Late night drives to fast food places yes yes yes
Zoe just wants to go on a date to the school dance with the cute girl in her class. That’s literally all she wants. But she’s not allowed to date anyone unless her brother dates someone. Which makes her entire endeavour a fruitless one, because Connor would much rather NOT interact with anyone, let alone date.
Jared overhears Zoe’s woes and offers her a potential fix - for a price (”Two Grand” “Two thousand dollars?” “Five hundred.” “Look, I got a hundred on me.” “Holy shit.”) and thus begins Jared’s quest of getting Connor and Evan together.
It starts with him just awkwardly putting them in situations together and then abandoning Evan. Then Evan starts catching feelings and it is a Big Problem.
Connor and Evan go out and skip school. Evan gets to meet the Soft Connor that no one else gets to see. Evan helps Connor sneak out of detention and they go on a cute date. They definitely sneak into the orchard. Connor has no idea why he’s just letting this random guy in.
Meanwhile, Zoe is off having a grand ol’ time being tutored by Alana and flirting endlessly.
By the time Homecoming comes around, Evan is like head over heels and really nervously asks Connor to go to the dance with him. Connor rejects him which like.. kills Evan inside. But then Zoe is like “please c’mon I’ll never bug you every again if you just say yes” and Connor gives in and texts Evan to apologize and say yes, he will go.
When Connor finds out that Jared set up the whole thing at the dance, he thinks Evan is in on it and explodes on everyone. Evan has a full blown panic attack and Jared’s like… oh shit, I fucked up.
Connor actually does his homework assignment for once and it’s super emo and sad but instead of leaving after reading his poem he sits down and glares at Evan. Evan volunteers to read his next which shocks everyone because! Anxiety!
He stands up and reads it and breaks down crying through it. And then has a panic attack and Connor realizes that Evan was a victim as much as he was and Evan’s feels are real.
Warning: lots of violence, attempted murder, attempted suicide, and much much more blood and gore.
It’s rare for me to start the A/Ns with a warning but… The whole chapter is basically just that….. Sorry….
In the middle part, the POV changes back and forth to different places. Sorry if it will be confusing.
Fresh paced around the hallways as he waits for the doctor to come out of the room. He found Fika in a very narrow alleyway, already dying. He really hopes that Fika will be safe.
“Fresh, calm down.” Paperjam hugged fresh from behind. Fresh just nodded and sighed.
A few minutes later, familiar voices called out to them.
“Fresh!” Fresh looked at the direction of the voice and saw Xahji. She has a worried look on her face, tears threatening to fall.
“X-xahji….” Fresh looked behind Xahji and noticed the worried Idle and Siren. Colonna is there as well. But for some reason….. She looks like she is faking it…. Fresh must be overthinking it.
“Where’s Fika?! Is she alright?” Idle asked worryingly.
“We don’t know yet…… ” Fresh responded.
“Poor Fika…” Colonna said with fake concern.
“Let’s just wait… For now….” Fresh said as they sat.
A few minutes later which felt like hours, the doctor finally came out.
“Doctor!” Idle rushed to the doctor and grabbed her coat.
“How is she?” Siren questioned.
“Her vocal cord is damaged. She won’t be able to apeak from now on. And she had a lot of blood loss. She would need hours or maybe days befor she wakes up. But I can assure you that she will live.” The doctor said as she removed Idle’s hands gently.
“Thank you.” Paper jam said.
“You can enter the room now but be gentle. Call me when needed.” The doc said and left them.
Idle quickly bursted into the room. He rushed to Fika’s side.
“Fika…. I’m sorry you had to suffer for this…..” Idle apologized hoping that he hears her.
“Idle, don’t blame yourself.” Colonna held his shoulders.
“But it IS my fault!” Idle’s tears started to fall.
“No it’s not.” Xahji hugged Idle.
“B-but-” Idle started only to be cut off by a kiss.
“Look, Idle. It’s not your fault. It’s no one’s fault. Let’s just make sure that Fika is ok.” Siren said. No one noticed the frown that Colonna was giving though.
“I’ll stay here to watch on Fika. Someone has to guard her, y'know.” Fresh said.
“You sure? You’ll be skipping class.” Colonna confirmed.
“I’ll be fine. One absent won’t hurt.” Fresh assured her.
“Plus, I’ll be with him the whole time.” Paperjam added.
“Ok….” Idle nodded and left the room with Siren, Xahji and Colonna.
“Now….” PaperJam pulled Fresh by the waist. “We finally have time for ourselves~” He kissed Fresh suddenly, earning a slight reaction from him.
“Mmmf~!” Fresh felt PaperJam penetrate his mouth. He pushed PJ away, blushing.
“P-paperJam… We are in a hospital….. This isn’t a place where we should do it now…..” Fresh said, embarrassed. “Plus, Fika might wake up any minute…”
“Freshy…. You’re no fun, today.” PaperJam leaned his head on the crook of Fresh’s neck.
“We just…. Can’t do it here….” Fresh looked away.
“How about tonight~?” PaperJam smirked when he saw Fresh’s blush darken.
(Me: Meanwhile, with the tailed jerk, clueless idiot, one-eyed monster and the psychopatic yandere~)
(Siren, Idle, Xahji & Colonna: Excuse us?!?!)
(Me: Ok, ok. Meanwhile, with the four friends~)
“I can’t believe this….” Xahji thought outloud.
“Fika was one of the few friends I have….” Idle sighed.
“She did nothing wrong to deserve this.” Siren growled with anger.
“Whoever could have done this?” Colonna asked to nobody in particular.
They all just sighed in unison. They were walkng back to the school since it’d only a 25-minute walk to the hospital.
“Poor Fika…” Idle murmured.
“Hey, guys. Let’s just go back and inform everyone in class.” Colonna said.
They all agreed.
“They have the right to know.” Siren told them.
“I’m gonna tell Goth to tell Palette. The captain and the nurse were close, afterall.” Xahji informed her friends.
“I’ll…. Go tell Cray….and maybe Cil….” Idle looked down at his feet, some of his tears still escaped.
“Idle….” Siren hugged his boyfriend tightly.
“I’ll go tell My bros….. And maybe the teachers, I guess….” Siren looked to the side.
“I’ll… Tell our classmates then.” Colonna kept walking ahead of her friends.
“Let’s just hope that she’ll be fine.” They all nodded until finally, they reached the school.
~time skip brought to you by cliche~
Colonna rushed to the clinic and took the poison. Good thing that she stole Fika’s keys before she stabbed her to half-death.
Her plan has officially started.
“This will work. Fika is in the hospital, Snazzy and Cil have practice, Xahji’s helping Goth in fixing the library, Swifty and Cray are preparing for the next UnderHigh News, Idle is with them… But I can call him here…” Colonna thought to herself.
“Just gotta prepare the suicide letter, the food, the poison and my trusty knife just in case.” Colonna pulled out her knife. Her favorite one to use in killing people. Yes, this wasn’t the first time.
There were multiple cases of dissapearance of students in their school. And it’s all because they either had a crush on Siren or they got too close to him.
“Oh Siren-pai, we will be together soon. I promise…” She hid the knife in her knife pocket under her skirt. That way, it won’t be too obvious.
She poured the poison in the food and decided to call Idle for an invitation for snacks.
Ring. Ring. Ring.
“Hello?” She smiled when she heard Idle.
“Hey, Idle. You busy? I was wondering if we could have a snack together today.” Colonna said innocently.
“Sure! I’ll just have to finish some things here.” Idle smiled.
“Ok! I’m willing to wait.” Waiting isn’t a problem for her, anymore. It’s all calculated. “See you on the roof top.”
“I’ll be there in 20 min i guess.” Idle chuckled and hung up the phone.
After poisoning Idle, she could just throw him off the railings down the dumpster next to the school’s incinerator. She prepared everything beforehand.
By lunch, the delinquents aren’t there, guarding. If she ever had to use her knife, she could still throw the body there and use the door on the west. That place isn’t crowded plus, it was almost time for school to end, anyways.
“Everything is flowing according to plan. And his 20 minutes has started. Its…. 5:25.” Colonna smirked and waited for the clueless Idle to go.
“Ugh….. This is such a pain…..” Xahji complained as she put down a box above the three other boxes.
“Hey, Xahji. Need help?” A voice said.
“Oh. Hey, Dance. I was just about to take these to my clubroom.” Xahji said. “But they are too heavy.”
“I can help you.” Dance suggested.
“Really? It won’t bother you, would it?” Xahji asked.
“Nah. Not a single bit.” Dance smiled as he picked up the two heavier boxes.
“Ok. Thanks.” Xahji said and picked up the other two boxes.
“It’s almost 10 hours…” Fresh sighed as she looked at Fika with worried eyes.
“She’ll be fine.” PaperJam said while playing in his phone.
“You always say that.” Fresh frowned and looked at PaperJam.
“Because it’s the truth.” PaperJam said.
“But she’s been asleep. For 10 hours!” Fresh shouted the last part.
“So? She will wake up soon, Fresh! Justcalm down!” He heard a game over in his phone. “Great. Now, look. I lost.”
“So what?! Fika is much more important!” Fresh shouted before he heard a groan.
He looked at Fika moving. He rushed to her side and held her hand.
“Fika? Fika can you hear me? Paperjam call the doctor!” Fresh stated in panic and relief.
“Got it.” PaperJam pushed the button and alerted the nurses that Fika is awake.
you know how during last season, sana was such a good friend and classmate to isak? how she sent him her physics notes when he needed them, and how when isak skipped school in episode 9, he asked her if she could hand in an assignment for him, and she did, and asked him if everything was okay, because she could sense that something was wrong, and she wanted to let isak know that she was there for him
well, this season they’re still going to have classes together, and i would love love love the roles to be “reversed”, to see isak, who considers sana his friend and who cares about her, be a good friend and classmate for her. send her his notes if she needs them, help her out with school work if things aren’t going so well for her, and being the one asking her if everything is okay, and letting her know that he’s there for her
can you do a zach dempsey imagine where y/n and him are together and she is a nice sweet innocent girl and they are making one night and she doesn’t want to go any further bc she wants to wait until marriage to have sex and she’s afraid that he doesn’t want to be with her anymore but he does. Sorry if that’s weird.
It’s not weird! Thank you for requesting ^.^ This is my first 13RW imagine so yaaay. I love Zach <3
Warnings: fluff fluff fluff / making ouutttt / lil’ bit of swearing
“And then… we did it,” Jessica’s blush tainted her cheeks a dark red, as she described yesterday’s date night with Justin Foley.
Your eyes widened. Jessica and Justin had already had sex? They’d only been together for a few months. It’s not that you had an issue with that, it just surprise you. You and Zach had been together for almost 2 years, and you still hadn’t had sex. You had decided to wait until marriage to lose your virginity, hopefully to Zach or if for some reason not him, someone as great as him. You couldn’t describe how lucky you felt to have a guy who respected your wishes like he did, especially with the crowd that he hung around with.
You couldn’t help but feel guilty though, when his friends bragged about their “summer conquests” in front of him. Sometimes you felt as if you weren’t even good enough. You wouldn’t be surprised if Zach thought that way too.
“Congrats Jess,” You forced an enthusiastic smile, and she giddily skipped along the school corridor.
You stopped by your locker, reaching in to exchange some textbooks, when you felt a pair of arms snake themselves around your waist. You turned around, only to come face to face with the guy himself. Zach Dempsey.
He was grinning down at you, wiggling his eyebrows. You laughed before reaching up on your tiptoes to place a chaste kiss on his soft lips. He rested his forehead against yours, before pecking you on the nose, causing you to giggle childishly.
“How’s my girl today?” He took your hand, fingers intertwined, as you walked around. You blushed at his words, only causing him to grin wider.
“Stressed. How about you?” You sighed heavily, staring down at the ground. He stopped, turning to you with his eyebrows furrowed adorably and with a frown on his face.
“How come?” He played with your hands therapeutically, tracing circles on the palm.
“Bio. I’ve got a big test coming up and if I fail like last time it’s going to bring my average down, it’s my worst subject Zach,” You whined, resting your head on his shoulder. He tilted his own head to press a soft and lingering kiss on your forehead.
“Well lucky for you, future Marine Biologist here!” He pointed to himself, feigning a cocky attitude and you rolled your eyes playfully. “Are you free tonight? I can come round and help you study.”
“That sounds like an excuse to spend time together,” You raised an eyebrow at him, although to be honest, you would much rather hang about and cuddle with your boyfriend than study biology.
“Maybe,” He drawled mischievously and you smiled at him, grateful that he could take your mind off of your problems. You reluctantly slipped your hand out of his and began to walk off to your next class.
“See you at 7, lucky for you it’s pizza night,” You called over your shoulder, leaving Zach grinning like an idiot in a busy crowd of high school students.
“(Y/N), over here!” Jessica waved frantically at you as you stepped into your French class. She had reserved a spot for you next to her, and you sent her a grateful smile as you dumped your bag down beside her and sat down. “Okay, so I’m having an existential crisis and thought why not get over it by a little hot chocolate date tonight?” She tapped her fake nails on the desk excitedly.
“I actually can’t, I’m studying for the Biology test with Zach tonight,” You replied and Jessica’s jaw dropped. “What?”
“It’s just… he was going on about it earlier but I didn’t think he was actually gonna. Damn Dempsey,” Jessica seemed to be muttering more to herself and you didn’t want to play the pronoun game.
“What’s it Jess?” You folded your arms and gave her the ‘mum friend’ look.
“Wait, just to check, he was the one asking to come over?” Jessica had now grabbed both of your hands, squeezing them excitedly and you didn’t really know how to react.
“Uh… yeah, I uhh, think he was,” You didn’t sound 100% sure, but that didn’t stop Jessica from squealing.
“Okay, okay so Zach was talking to us earlier about how you guys were like, waiting for the right moment to have sex and that you two had a really good thing going on right now and shit. He is definitely going to make a move and try and go all the way tonight!”
You paled slightly. Zach knew that you wanted to wait, perhaps he’d just phrased it wrong. Perhaps Jessica and co had gotten the wrong end of the stick, or come to irrational conclusions. You loved Zach with all of your heart, but you were sticking to your morals. The only thing that was going to happen that night, was studying.
A few hours later, you’re pressed up against your bedroom door, sloppily kissing your boyfriend of two years. His hands were roaming your curves, exploring your figure whilst yours were tangled in his ruffled, matted hair.
Small whimpers and moans would spill from mouths as you knew the actions that drove one another crazy. You would tug on the roots of his hair, he would attack the sweet spots on your neck and jaw with passion.
His voice was rough and lust-filled as he whispered in your ear.
You did just that, wrapping your legs around his waist, slipping your tongue inside his mouth desperately. The two of you battled for dominance before he pulled apart and let you go to roughly pull off his shirt. You took a moment to appreciate his muscular build before advancing towards him with fire in your eyes. He hastily pulled you onto your bed, and you let your hands trail his toned chest, leaving quick kisses as you went. He pulled you forwards into another searing kiss before flipping you over so he was on top.
His tongue slipped back into your mouth like a puzzle piece and you groaned in response, your nails reaching up to claw his back. As you were distracted by his fiery kiss, Zach’s hand slowly crept towards your bra clip. When you felt him tug on one of the straps, you abruptly broke apart, panting heavily.
Your face was flushed red and you grabbed a pillow, hiding your look of shame from your boyfriend. Zach sat up awkwardly before pulling the pillow from your grasp and carelessly chucking it behind him. He laid down beside you, pulling you into his embrace and you let him, snuggling into his shirtless side.
“What’s wrong babygirl?” He whispered softly, and you melted at the consideration and care in his voice.
“I’m…I’m not ready to go that far yet Zach, remember?” You sighed, hoping he wouldn’t be annoyed at you. He stayed quiet for a while and you were cringing, knowing you’d screwed something up, before he wrapped an arm around your waist.
“I’m sorry (Y/N), heat of the moment I guess,” He chuckled, scratching the back of his neck as he sat up and rested against your headboard. You crawled over, so your head was lying on his lap and he affectionately played with your hair, an action that seemed to always soothe the both of you.
“I just feel so bad, because you wanted to go all the way tonight but I’m just want to wai-.” You began to ramble but he interrupted you.
“Wait… what? I wasn’t planning on having sex with you tonight. I respect your ‘waiting until marriage’ approach,” He looked confused, and so did you. “Where did you get that idea from?”
“Well, Jessica said-”
“I told the guys this morning that we were waiting to have sex until we were both ready and that we have a good relationship so I don’t want to mess that up by trying to force the idea of sex on you,” Zach explained and everything suddenly made a whole lot more sense.
“Ooooh, I get it,” You nodded and Zach snorted. “I am so screwed on this Biology test.”
“Dork,” He shoved you off of him playfully and you jumped right up, shoving him back. He grabbed you by the waist, pulling you closer to him so he could give you the dreaded tickle assault. You squealed and laughed uncontrollably as he attacked your sides with his evil fingers.
“I LOVE YOUU!” You managed to stumble through your heavy laughter. Zach stopped, smiling up at you lovingly before clasping your cheeks and placing a gentle kiss on your swollen lips.
– She’d already mastered the material they were covering in class (“I taught Watson to multiply fractions at the age of 4!” “Yeah, using severed toes, as I recall…”)
– The day’s lesson plan included something unbearably tedious (”What could she possibly gain from listening to her peers stumble through poorly-researched reports on Henry VIII? I can’t let our daughter be subjected to such torture.”)
–He was conducting an important experiment and required a lab assistant
–He forgot deleted what day of the week it was
–She was feeling depressed/stressed/out of sorts and just needed to recharge by spending a day curled up on the couch watching crap telly
–She’d stayed up too late reading (for pleasure) the night before
