Finally!

Lily and James at the start of seventh year…

James: That I may have “borrowed” from you in the first place. Out of curiosity of course. But if that’s where your mind goes first maybe you are thinking about going out with me.

Lily: *refuses to acknowledge the last comment at least for now*

Lily: A pen Potter.

James: *Hesitates remembering the last time that Lily hexed him*

James: Lily is touching my arm. LILY EVANS IS TOUCHING MY ARM.

Lily: Done!

Lily: Read it you toerag. Anyway I’ve got to go.

James *Attempts to quickly recover form being flustered*

Lily: *turns around briefly* JUST READ WHAT I WROTE IDIOT.

Note:

Hogsmeade 2pm for lunch tomorrow?
Lily xx

James: WHAT IS HAPPENING?! PADFOOT! MOONY! WORMTAIL! COME QUICK SOMEONE NEEDS TO PINCH ME!!!

  • My friend: The reason people say Mercy is easy is because she has a low skill-cap, given that she's very straight-forward and easy to figure out, and a lot of people get bored while playing her for that reason. Once you learn Mercy's controls, there's really nothing else you need to learn besides rez timing, so people get bored with her. That's why a lot of people prefer to play Ana or Lucio, they play more complexly and have much higher skill caps and are overall more fun to play because of it.
  • What I think: Mercy is not as easy to play as people make her out to be. You constantly have to deal with people flanking your team and killing you first, you have to deal with the typical "where the fuck were you Mercy?" comments when someone decides to go out on their own and you stay with the rest of the team or when an ult goes off and you couldn't save them or even when you died because their ass couldn't be bothered to keep you alive, you have to deal with teammates who refuse to come to cliffsides when you inevitably get booped by a D.Va or a Lucio or an ulting Roadhog, you have to deal with the absolute dread of being killed without ult and making your way back to point only to see your entire team get wiped knowing that the enemy team will come hunting you down next. Mercy is actually HARDER because she can only do one thing at once and has to rely on her team a lot for the sake of hero balancing. I will fuckin fight you right now in the Waffle House parking lot you little shit.
  • What I say: I guess I see your point.

“Yes, of course we still love her, and we’re always thinking of her…”

“I know you both needed someone who knows what you’re going through…”

if you’ve got a bunch of teenagers in space w no access to media they are going to start making their own entertainment so i think that we need to discuss team voltron memes

  • “where’s [insert team member here]?” “i mean… *looks out window at the stars, shrugs* space, probably”
  • they keep a tally of every time lance gets rejected by someone and use it to shut him up when he’s getting annoying
    • “okay i’m gonna stop you there, 37 strike outs”
  • whenever an alien does something particularly weird pidge loudly hums the x-files theme
  • lance will do random trust falls “for team bonding.” everyone lets him fall on his ass but shiro
  • drawing mustaches on random objects and talking to them as if they’re coran
  • for like two weeks lance refers to keith exclusively through pop culture references
    • “hey where’s older, angrier Nico Di Angelo?”
    • “scarless Zuko is in position”
    • “ayo young Billy Ray Cyrus come spar with me” 
  • loud acapella renditions of The Circle of Life during training sessions
  • hunk the Hunk™
  • calling shiro dad but only in the context of petty arguments (“daaaaaad, lance won’t stop touching my stuff”)
  • *points at something pidge is tinkering with* “is that a calculator”
  • constant shitting on the castle’s defenses
    • “after that fight, I think I need a drink, and it better be stronger than that particle barrier”
  • there’s a month long campaign to catch shiro in the middle of his morning routine to solve the mystery of whether or not he uses eyeliner. but they can never catch him getting up in the morning?? like one time they pull an all nighter and hide in his bathroom and somehow?? he still evades them???
  • whenever allura enters the room lance yells “everyone act casual” and they all strike ridiculous poses
  • *lance gets into a Situation and asks keith for help* “I’m sorry I… can’t hear you…. I think the connection’s…… breaking up…………”
  • exaggeratingly censoring themselves in front of pidge
    • “oh biscuits and jam I am so darn steamed right now!” “lance shut the fuck up”

Pros of playing Mercy: Nice people up vote you at the end, you’re thanked every time you heal someone, you hold the life of every member of your team in your palm, you can resurrect all your teammates, you can fly

Cons of being Mercy: Being the only one on the point/objective defending while the entire enemy team descends on you, most everyone straying out of your line of sight, Genji: I NEED HEALING at 95% health, ppl going Mercy when YOU’RE Mercy and sucking at it (they don’t get heals bc you’re the real Mercy), no POTGs unless you use your gun and kill lots of people, all of the tanks on the enemy team coming after your ass, long ass reload in the heat of battle

J: If we don’t think of a plan redhead will be expelled
Z: Actually it’s very simple only need to prove on that day he wasn’t at school.

Jian yi leaps on zhan and ruffles his hair. ‘Wow you are so clever~ I’m going to prove that.  Zhan replied ‘What you say is not persuasive! we need a witness!’

Xiao Hui shows up and says nervously ‘I-I have proof that should be helpful..’

They drag her to the office and Jian yi barges in and starts yellin ‘Teacher mo guan shan is innocent what’s on the bulletin board is what you made up!  Actually he wasn’t near the school, Luckily someone took a photo, the photo clearly shows the place and time.’

‘yes we perhaps we have mistaken him for someone else..’ Jian yi barks out ‘You think it’s okay to mistake him someone else?? apologise publicly n 2000 words! the school will continue to look!’

‘Heard from Jian Yi your side is settled. I have also fixed my side.’

‘She li won’t make trouble for you anymore.’ He raises a bloodied hand. ‘ Come here to help~’ 

‘Why didn’t you go to the doctor!’ Redhead says, taking off his shirt. ‘ I came to ask you to pay the medical fees.’ He Tian replies.

‘idiot…’ Redhead mumbles quietly, using the shirt to clean up his bloodied hand.

redhead clenches his teeth as if pained by he tian getting injured, and laces their fingers together.

Um, so. I LOVED that.

I mean, it was utterly heartbreaking and John is seriously fucked up right now and it hurt like hell but

Sherlock is getting so tender and brave. And John is deeply hurt, and he didn’t like Mary anymore, or trust her, and he hadn’t dealt with that properly before she died (or did she really die?), but he’s going to figure it out in time. And there’s so much coming with Mycroft and Redbeard and Sherrinford and Ella.

ELLA. She always calls out their bullshit. I suspect she is going to compassionately kick Sherlock’s ass and it’s going to be fantastic

And Mary’s video ending was creepy af

And they literally used “I love you” and “Generic phone number + JLC” as codes in the very first ep

THEY LITERALLY HAD SOMEONE BEING TORTURED FOR YEARS WITH THE WORDS “I LOVE YOU”

And an arwelephant on Mycroft’s fridge

And Sherlock telling the therapist he needs help to know what to do about John

And quietly telling John that he underestimates himself and he likes him

The way he likes Toby, the way he loved Redbeard

HE SAVED THE JOHN BALLOON AND IT’S STILL THERE IN THE FLAT AT THE END

And we know from the trailers that John will be back and helping him with Culverton partway through

Love conquers all

This is going to be amazing

Stop the Hate

The next time you feel the need to say something mean or unkind, or feel the need to point out people’s flaws or feel like you have to publicly disparage or humiliate someone, take a second to read this. It’s a reminder that stopping the hate in this world starts with us. Right here, right now. 

If you don’t have something nice to say, put the phone down, take your hands off the keyboard.  Don’t reply with a snotty comment, don’t hit send on that anonymous ask, don’t retweet the bullshit.  Go for a walk, watch a cat video, sing your favorite song at the top of your lungs, do anything but spread the hate. Be the better person.  

I’m gonna do something that I’ve been told not to do for as long as I can remember.

609-217-9250

I want ANYONE who feels unsafe, scared, alone, lost, sad, whatever, I want you to put that number in your phone.

I don’t care who you are I don’t care where you’re from I don’t care what is going on in your life, if you need someone and there’s no one you feel you can turn to, please fucking text or call me (or hmu on whatsapp because that’s easier and I’m almost always on there)

IT could be as small as needing an opinion on what to wear to the dance because if you look over your options one more time you’re gonna scream. It could be as big as ‘I’m too afraid to call for help can you please do it for me’.

I fucking mean it please please reach out to someone. Reach out to anyone you can. You don’t need to suffer alone.

Here we are again.
Avoiding eye contact in crowded places.
Weaving in and out of strangers
with gray eyes and nameless faces.

There you go again.
Drinking anything to not be sober.
Looking for someone that you can bring home,
in hopes to fill out the voids
that you’ve written my name all over.

Over and over again.
When you start making noises in your sleep,
I hope he pulls you closer.
Close enough to hear you curse my name,
because i’m still the biggest demon you keep.


And on the very few nights that you actually do go home alone, I hope thoughts of us consume you, so much that you need to finish bottles just to rest.

—  Loving you was shit.
I hope times are hard for you.

  • there’s probably more to this and i got really off topic a lot but yeah
  • neil and matt call each other my guy and my dude as a symbol of their never ending friendship
Two million f*ck yous.

Recently worked on a project that went wrong - all my crew did their jobs, but the people who got me to engage them all did so without having raised the essential finance, and lied about it. Hundreds of thousands of dollars owed to suppliers and crew by the time they admitted it. Horrid mess, lots of court threats, lots of people f*cked over, the legality of improper trading certainly questionable, etc. And my good name and reputation wrecked.

As it became clearer that I wasn’t going to be paid, I figured it was worth inflicting damage - the same company had enough cash to invest in other projects whilst refusing to pay their debts on this one, and someone needed to suffer. Quick shout to the tax office for starters pointing out that some of the reported figures simply could not be correct, and that they may choose to investigate. That’s just good manners. The real meat was catching an investor in time.

This investor was good for about $1.5M-$2M. They were very excited to have reeled him in to cashflow their other projects. By absolute coincidence a friend in the same industry was introducing this investor, and happened to hear of this crashed project, and looked up the records and saw my name involved. We go a long way back, he called me to ask about what had happened.

We had a long chat - it turned out someone we both knew was taking this investment to the company, had misrepresented the situation somewhat, and was due to make a personal $50k-100k from hooking this investment. It was a lovely chat, once we unpicked the maze of companies and who did what with whom and whose money, my old friend called the investor. This was on a Saturday, the paperwork was due to be signed on Monday. F*cking killed the deal right through the heart with a stake. Millions of dollars of investment and tens of thousands of finders fees all turned off in a single call.

They don’t know it was me, and never will as they are very litigious and it’s f*cked them over admirably in a very small industry. And all down to the generosity of the gods getting an old friend to get in touch with perfect timing. And I’m not finished, they’re still lying and not paying people and suppliers for work done for them on that project, so I figure I’m a secret superhero and if I get any more opportunities I’ll inflict more damage. I can’t myself ever letting this one go, at least until every penny has been paid. Maybe a little longer to pay for my reputational damage, too.

because modern day dregs is my favorite au and i’m not sorry?

nina

  • she works at a clothing boutique. she only applied for the job in order to get the employee’s discount
  • she’s the girl to call if you’re going to be sick and can’t come into work because she’s always looking for more shifts. turns out she needs the extra cash since all of her paychecks go to new shoes
  • she has expensive tastes for someone with a minimum wage job
  • she owns every shade of red lipstick on the planet. if you ask her what the difference is between ablaze and bright red she will proceed to point out colors throughout the day and ask you what color you see because clearly your eyes are impaired and she’s quite worried
  • she signs up for all the improv classes
  • she’s watched every single rom com netflix offers. even foreign ones. sometimes she watches without subtitles and everyone is like when did you learn THIS language, too???
  • she’s an avid user of emojis. sometimes she uses them as responses and you have to spend five minutes trying to decipher what the heck they all mean as a sentence. you might randomly receive a scene created with emojis in the middle of the day because she’s bored
  • she knows every pop song. every single mainstream song on the radio. if you get into her car you’ll be attending a concert. she screams the lyrics, even when she doesn’t know them, she’ll make them up. she’ll also substitute any of her passengers into the song.
  • also that car? it’s a piece of junk. you have to use your elbows to open the doors. literally. there’s a technique, thump with your fist, a swift kick, a wriggle of the handle, a tap with your elbow. tada. yes it’s dramatic, yes it’s mostly for show, but she definitely enjoys doing it. she wouldn’t be nina if she didn’t like a scene?? also it’s fun to watch the other dregs do it
    • though matthias somehow just yanks the door open with no problem and kaz never goes anywhere near her car (he’s a car snob)

I refuse to think about how broken Philip must be for his mother’s death, but I can imagine him hiding in his room, a photo in his shaking hands, not going out even to eat, just assuring a super worried Gabe that he’ll be fine..
Until Lukas knocks at his room door, and Philip just tells him to please go away, that he needs time, that he needs to stay alone, but Lukas knows he needs someone but he’s just too used to be alone to ask for it, to know it. So every day Lukas just goes and knocks at his door, and every day Philip just gives him a peck on his lips and a tiny smile, but then says him to go…still Lukas is not so easy to convince, and he starts to sit on the floor, leaning against the door, and he just stays there. Reading a magazine about motocross and commenting on it and on the new, incredible, bikes one day he’ll be able to afford, listening to some new album and singing it off key, talking about that absurd new couple at school…because he was too young to remember his mom for real, but he knows the pain of not having her there and he can only imagine how desperate and alone Philip must feel, and he hurts just at the idea that Philip is in so much pain. 
And then one day he starts telling his usual jokes and comments about something and he hears a tiny laugh, and he keeps going and the laugh is a little louder and he can *feel* that Philip is smiling, but he says nothing, he just does the same the day after, and at some point he feels Philip leaning against the door too and just like that he starts talking, about his mom, about seeing Ryan getting killed, about all the fear he repressed for months. Philip talks to Lukas as if he’d been talking to himself, he confesses everything in his heart, even his feeling guilty for making things difficult between Gabe and Helen, even how scared he is of getting close, of loving, Gabe… and Lukas doesn’t say a word, just leans against the door, listening, and then stays there even when Philip is long done with his telling, he stays until Gabe tells him to go sleep in the room downstairs because is too late to go home. 
And the day after is the same as usual, Lukas just goes upstairs and knocks at the door, magazine in his hand, but this time there’s no quick kiss or fake smile, this time there’s a tiny real one, and tired eyes and tussled hair of someone who didn’t sleep for too long, but Philip takes his hand and entwines their fingers together and asks Lukas if he wants to show him those new bikes he keeps ranting about before hugging him and hiding his face in Lukas’ neck, grateful for what he has, ready to start anew…

So…that’s my headcanon, deal with it 

  • what she says: im fine
  • what she means: Does Yuri Plisetsky go to school? Does he get bullied for being a figure skater? Does he get bullied for the way he looks, especially after he begins growing his hair out as he trains to become like a prima ballerina? How much time does he spend in the principal's office for getting into fights or cursing at teachers? We know he's never been asked to become someone's friend before Otabek - has he been pushing potential friends away since he was a small child? How has his family's financial situation and his need to help provide for them impacted his school life? Does he get decent grades? Is he good at any particular subject? Or does he just not care at all because he knows where his future lies? Maybe he's had a private tutor for several years now instead of attending regular school? Someone please assure me that Yurio is getting some kind of education, whether he likes it or not, and that no one picks on him.
Her Return

Let’s not beat around the bush here. We know Bismuth is coming back at some point. She still has make amends with Lapis, learn from her mistakes and ultimately rejoin the crystal gems as a mentally stable member of the team.

There are a lot of things Bismuth needs to do, but in order for her to come back, Steven and the gems are going to need to find a reason to let her out of her bubble, and as a fan theorist It’s high time I talk about how I think that’s going to happen.

Bismuth’s return can go one of a few different ways, but if she’s going to come back on her own, we need to stop thinking for a moment about WHO she is and start focusing on what she is: A weaponsmith, and a damned good one at that.

If bismuth’s coming back it’s going to be because someone needs a new weapon, and there are really only two cases we have a chance of predicting

The first is Rose’s sword, which Bismuth herself crafted. Unlike ordinary gem weapons, Rose’s sword is a real, permanent object that can’t be summoned endlessly or replaced if lost or broken.

Being a legendary sword, there’s a very decent chance that at some point, for some reason or another that sword is going to get shattered, as so many heroes swords do. If that happens, it would need to be reforged and Bismuth is the only gem we know who could do it (unless garnet uses her future vision to gain years of blacksmithing experience instantly by practicing in a bunch of alternate timelines).

Unfortunately this scenario is still fairly unlikely for the simple fact that we don’t know anyone with a sword strong enough to cut through it (Ronaldo’s nippon steel notwithstanding)

No, if there’s one way to drag bismuth back, there’s really only one good hook

Peridot!

Let’s look at the facts here. Peridot may have metalbending skills, but her being able to use it depends on her having a piece of metal that’s light enough for her to lift and pointy enough to do damage but isn’t embedded in the wall or ground.

Unless people in Beach City leave piles of rebar lying around, Peridot is going to need some sort of weapon, and as luck has it we might be just be coming up on the topic within the next two episodes

While we’ve been following the crystal gems on a rescue mission to the human zoo, Garnet left Lapis and Peridot (and Connie) in charge of protecting beach city in her absence. If this was an implicit thing I wouldn’t be talking about it, but because they gave us more than a few seconds to focus on their task I am going to go ahead and assume that something is going to come up while they’re gone

Now, I don’t have any doubt that Lapis can handle any problem that comes up, and if Connie is in the picture she’d be able to do something or other with her months of sword training and perplexing superhuman strength, but Peridot is going to contribute nothing to the party, and the realization would crush her tiny spirit.

Now, while we’re treated to a flashback of what happened (in the narrative frame of Lapis or Peridot describing the events to Steven) Peridot would be struggling to cope with the fact that being a nerd isn’t enough to protect earth. She needs some kind of combat training, and more importantly, she needs a weapon, and who do you think they’d turn to under those circumstances?

Guess who?

Bismuth coming back into the picture with peridot has an added bonus, because now that they’re roommates and teammates, if you’re getting a peridot Lapis will probably be there too, leaving us all the setup we need for a bismuth/lapis confrontation.

I just love it when everything comes together, even it’s only in my imagination
