so hows church


  • O'Malley: here Doc, take this rose that I grew in my garden
  • Doc: (//////) oh wow thank you! O'Malley that is so sweet I-ow, oops, I pricked myself-
  • O'Malley: YOU FOOL! You've fallen directly into my trap! I knew you would accept a rose from me without question, and without checking to see if I pruned it, which OF COURSE I did not, because I WANTED you to harm yourself of your own accord!! And now you are bleeding, and <I>I</I> have the upper hand, my evil plan has worked perfectly!! Yes, that's why I spent many months growing to my rose bush from a small seed, tending to it and treating it with care, trying to find the perfect one to lay my evil trap on and it succeeded! And I definitely did not grow this rose because I love you and appreciate everything that you've done for me but I only know how to express myself through bouts of anger and depression because I have no idea how to deal with genuine emotion. No, it was definitely an evil plan.

some reasons why s3 is my favorite


I’ve been thinking about Mac’s story in Mac fights gay marriage, in particular his and Dennis’ scene, that I’ve screencapped above (with the lack of quality that I like to think I’m known for).

When I first watch the episode I thought two things:

1. That it was harsh but in character for Dennis who regularly goes though the process of believing he can improve his life by exchanging Mac for someone else.

2.  That it was a natural comeuppance for Mac’s behaviour during the episode.

But on re-watching I’ve come to the conclusion that it directly related the ep’s main theme- gay marriage.

The scene above has always bothered me.  Are we really meant to believe that Mac has no stuff?  I mean, yes he has a bare room, but there’s the odd thing in it.  And more to the point are we really meant to believe that Mac’s clothes used to be Dennis’s?  I mean, Dennis has the dullest taste in clothes and Mac’s has a lot of personality.  Even with the sleeves on them I struggle to believe Dennis would ever pick out most of Mac’s clothing.

So why isn’t the scene just Dennis kicking Mac out?  I mean it would be enough if that’s all he did for the joke to land and to set up the next episode.  But instead they have Dennis quite literally take the shirt from Mac’s back.  Why push the scene this far (other than the fact that it’s IASIP)?  Because it’s actually about marriage, or more to the point… it’s about divorce.

Mac spends his day arguing against gay marriage, he comes home to find the man who is essentially his life partner married to a woman and turfing him out. 

Not only turfing him out but telling him he has no claim to any part of the life they’ve been sharing.  I mean, of course it’s Mac’s apartment too.  Of course he has things, I bet they’ve often bought things for the apartment together or there are picture of his parents or… the duster.

But Dennis is basically telling him he has no rights here- no rights at all to the life they’d built together. 

How might Mac have had some rights in this situation?  Well, if he and Dennis had been married.  Marriage and divorce would of protected him.

Cause ultimately the person in this episode who would benefit the most from gay marriage is… Mac.

so but imagine little matthew having his first parent-teacher conference after niall dies and hes just sitting there after school with the teacher who is looking at the door like theyre just about to ask if anyone is going to come and matthew is holding on to a progress report for dear life and he looks like hes about to burst into tears AND THEN declan bursts in all skinny and teenage in a suit a little too big acting like he owns the place and the teacher tries to tell him that this is a /parent/-teacher conference and declan just looks at them like hes the closest thing theyre gonna get and he takes matthew out for ice cream after and keeps the progress report in a drawer in his desk with all of ronans disciplinary warnings 

a consistent church hc? unheard of

Why do you think JK never made Snape care about Harry? I always expected thats where the story would go at one point but then it didnt at all... like at least a moment of effection or something

Several reasons, I think.

First, as I said in the other post, it was too late for Snape. He is the antihero, much more than Voldemort ever was, and he was set up to fail from the start. He would die with his unresolved issues deep in his soul - the guilt, the rage, the inability to trust and love another person (perhaps for fear of what that love would do to them, because look at what it had done to Lily). By the time Harry crashes into his life, Snape has find a modus vivendi - it’s dark and unpleasant and it keeps him in a lot of pain, but it’s all he knows, and we’re all afraid to let go of things that have kept us safe for years - even if those things are chains and cages. So, even at this moment when Snape would have the chance to start over and teach Lily’s child in the way he wishes he himself had been taught (the fact he was disagreeing with old textbooks at the age of sixteen shows quite clearly what he thought of the whole system) - well, that’s not something he considers. Consciously or subconsciously, he must have worried about what would happen if Harry refused him and mocked him, like James had done. What is colleagues would say if he suddenly changed his demeanour. What Harry himself would know about him - Snape doesn’t know how Harry grew up - what if Petunia had told him everything about ‘the Snape boy’, the weirdo who stalked her younger sister, the kid with the drunk father who was never quite clean and never quite tidy? I sort of believe that’s why Snape was so harsh on Harry during that first lesson - not only he saw James on his face and that hurt him deeply, but he was probably terrified Harry would know things about him - things only Lily could know, and what if she’d told Petunia, or if Harry had found her letters? So no, Snape never tried a different way, because the one he was walking - that was painful, but he already knew that pain he could bear. What if a new path brought him a pain he couldn’t bear?

(Which would have been the case, because if Snape had allowed himself to care about Harry, to love Harry, even, in this clumsy, childish, unfinished way that seems the only way he knows how to love people, how could he have let Harry die? He would have turned against Dumbledore, would have done anything to keep Harry safe like he’d done for Lily, and Dumbledore’s plans would have failed, and Voldemort would have won.)

🔥 about how strong Tim is? Like, people who've seen your blog know that you like a muscled Timmers.

Tiny Tim is TUFF yo. Tiny and Buff! And very very stronk okay? Like legitimately I full on believe that Tim is one of those people that’s like, “Yeah he’s toned and fit” and then he lifts and car and its like “BOI. Where’d that Herculean strength come from?!” Also…. he is usually portrayed as having muscle mass? Tim is not a slim jim! Sure compared to Jason and Bruce (who are tanks) Tim might look slight, but I dont know where people developed this “Tim is underweight and skinny” headcanon from?
