So, now that we’ve experienced the thoroughly explosive new Stevenbomb, there’s a
burning question that we all want the answer to:
What happens next?!
Steven’s now willing en-route to Homeworld in order to keep
his friends safe from harm, the Crystal Gems powerless to stop this
heartbreaking scenario from playing out right in front of their eyes.
They’ll need a plan, and fast. But the glaring issue here is that their only
space craft has been stolen reunited with its rightful owner again. The upshot of this, of course, is that the
Crystal Gems now have no way of reaching space.
Or, do they…?
Upon being freed from the mirror – and subsequently healed –
by Steven, Lapis couldn’t get off the Earth fast enough. In a relatively short amount of time, she was
able to fly herself all the way back to Homeworld without the aid of a vehicle.
We know that, Peridot aside, Steven is the one person who
Lapis cares for the most. She’s already
effectively sacrificed herself to save him in the past (this being her logic,
no matter how questionable it might have been, when forming Malachite in order
to stop Jasper from hurting Steven) – so she’s going to jump at the chance to
save him again.
I daresay that the Crystal Gems will be well aware of this
and will want/need to enlist her help, along with Peridot’s. Peridot is, of course, the most “modern” Gem
of the group and is the only one with prior experience of the current-day
However, another issue could arise here because (in a manner
of speaking) Aquamarine and Topaz were sent to Earth because of Peridot. If she hadn’t
filed that report all the way back in Marble
Madness, things might have played out very differently indeed.
I’ve theorised in the past that Peridot is internalising a
lot of the guilt that she undoubtedly feels for her past actions (trying to
kill Steven, the fusion experiments, almost leaving the Earth to be torn apart
by the Cluster, etc) and that, eventually, something
would cause all of this guilt to come spilling out. I have to wonder if she’s going to blame
herself for Steven’s capture and that, ultimately, this is going to be the
thing that tips her guilt over the edge.
Peridot has recently been showing an awful lot of compassion
to one individual in particular, continually putting this individual’s happiness
and comfort first…
Could it now be Lapis’ turn to be there for Peridot, just as
Peridot has been for her?
When Lapis and Peridot find out what happened to Steven,
there’s going to be a lot of upset
from everyone. Sometimes upset can turn
to anger, and blame might start being attributed all around. Perhaps the Crystal Gems themselves will begin blaming Peridot for what happened.
I can’t stop thinking about Peridot feeling guilty and
getting very upset about the whole thing, prompting Lapis to say “It’s not your
fault, Peridot…” before glaring at
the Crystal Gems and adding something like “You’re not the one who let them take him!”
I feel like Lapis might be harbouring some resentment for
the Crystal Gems and that she’s going to see Steven’s capture as being another reason
not to trust them. As I mentioned
earlier, Lapis considers that she actually sacrificed herself to save Steven –
so this line of logic could lead her to thinking that the Crystal Gems could
have done more to prevent him from being taken.
Is it fair to apportion blame like this? No – but that’s what can happen when
something this distressing and
Regardless of whether or not the “blame game” comes to
fruition, everyone will have to calm down from their upset eventually and
figure out what to do. They’ll have to
set aside any differences/disagreements that they may have and come together in
order to rescue the one person who ultimately binds them all together – Steven.
And this is where
things could get very interesting indeed.
Lapis can travel through space, but it’s unlikely that she would have the physical strength to
carry multiple Gems with her.
However…what if she’s not just Lapis
at this point?
I think a fusion between Lapis, Peridot and the Crystal Gems
(effectively creating another Alexandrite-esque Gem) is highly unlikely, for a
number of reasons.
Alexandrite is an incredibly powerful Gem – and so was Malachite,
Lapis’ only other fusion to date. If one
were to combine these forces, the resulting Gem would be unstoppable. This would be ideal,
of course; but, from a storytelling point of view, it offers a solution that’s
too simple. A “get out of jail free”
card, if you like.
There’s also the aforementioned issue of Lapis perhaps not
fully trusting the other Crystal Gems yet, as well as a huge question mark
hanging over the stability of a fusion involving six Gems. Lapis has also
been left traumatised by her experience as Malachite, so I feel like she’d only
fuse again with someone who she was very close to – with a dire emergency like this
one being the catalyst to get her to try fusing with someone again out of
Luckily, there is someone
who Lapis fully trusts, who she spends almost all her time alongside, and who
she’s living a very harmonious relationship with…
…and so this might be where we finally see our Lapidot fusion!
To me, it makes absolute perfect sense. Lapis can fly through space at an alarming
rate, Peridot knows all about modern Homeworld – and, if necessary, their
fusion might actually be able to carry the other Crystal Gems along with them!
Imagine a scene where Steven is in a room on Homeworld (or,
alternatively, still on-board Aquamarine and Topaz’s ship). Suddenly, a new Gem – the Lapidot fusion –
comes bursting through the door, the Crystal Gems in her arms/clinging onto her
back. That would be an amazing scenario.
Of course, the nature of the show is such that we see
everything from Steven’s perspective. I
wonder if the show will break this convention soon in order to show what’s
happening on Earth ahead of Steven’s inevitable rescue. We obviously know he’s going to get rescued somehow, but the tension and build-up
would be somewhat watered-down if we see the Crystal Gems’ plan play out in the
form of a The New Crystal Gems style
flashback episode. That’s still a
distinct possibility, of course, but I must admit that it’d be nice to see the
show’s formula get slightly shaken up in the next episodes.
Request- Hello!! Can I please request a Harry Hook imagine with a female reader as Mal’s younger sister who Harry has an obsession with and he just loves her but she doesn’t like him back and he maybe kidnaps her? Anything you want in the story though! Thank you!!
Disclaimer- I do not own any of the Descendants characters, all credit goes to the creator and producers of Disney’s Descendants. All I own is my story.
Pairing- Harry Hook x Fem! Reader
Summary- Mal’s plan doesn’t work out very well, (Y/N)’s and Harry’s past is revealed.
Warning(s)- Kidnapping, Cursing, Hating Uma, Talking about abuse.
A/N- I’ve decided to make a part 3 or maybe even a miniseries, idk which one yet.
Am I over the fact that Henry took, of all the powerful magical items lurking inside of Gold’s shop, the two most iconic tokens of his mothers into battle; Regina’s mirror and Emma’s sword?
Am I over the fact that the new storybook that Lucy carries, one that looks incredibly hand drawn, features an apple tree on the cover?
Am I over the fact that Emma wanted to be the person described in Henry’s hand-drawn book, a book that only showed the audience the Swan-Mills family arc from season one?
Am I over the fact that Fiona said Emma had been in the mental ward for the past two years, after the season one arc had ended… you know… right before that guy showed up in her life?
Am I over the fact that Lucy’s arrival at Henry’s door, bringing the end of the 6 season long arc back to where it all began, has cemented the Swan Mills family story line as central to the plot?
Am I over the fact that it has been made publicly known that Henry’s love story with Lucy’s mother is going to be an epic romance, LIKE SNOWING’s??
Am I over the fact that the original Brother’s Grimm rendition of Snow White depicts Snow’s mother wishing for a child “with skin white as snow, lips red as blood, and hair black as ebony” and that those just HAPPEN to be the Swan-Mills family colors???
Am I over the fact that…. this show apparently still has at least ONE MORE VERY IMPORTANT ALL-ENCOMPASSING PARALLEL-RIDDEN STORY LEFT TO TELL????
AM I OVER ANY OF THIS?!?!?!??
BECAUSE THIS IS NOT THE ENDING. THIS IS THE NEW BEGINNING.
While the trickster spark provides guidance to his Alpha, his mate, he also attempts to nourish his insatiable appetite while protecting their pack from those unfortunate enough to cross their path harboring ill intentions. The Nogissary will stop at nothing to ensure the safety of his pack, his family.
A/N: And I am back! After like, six weeks of not writing? I’m finally back! Please send me requests because I literally have no idea what to write.

Valentine’s Day was never a date you made an effort to remember. It was because you never had a reason to. A day filled with love where couples exchanged presents and their words of adoration towards each other. It was a holiday that you had always looked down upon, but not this year. This year was different.
Scattered Descendants 2 thoughts now that I’ve finished it:
- Ben is the perfect boy. The main conflict is a miscommunication and he spends literally the rest of the movie apologizing for it, going to extremes to make it right, and trying to get everybody to be more open with each other so it doesn’t happen again? I love him.
- Carlos, also a champion of open communication. There was a theme in this movie and I liked it. My boy insisting his friends all sit down and talk their shit out and get through it together. Look at him go. I love both my Hufflepuff boys.
- also, Mal going to Carlos like “dont you miss the isle a little” and hes just like “i literally had the worst life possible so…… no” my boy
- Carlos and Jane was entirely unnecessary imo but honestly both of them are so endearing that I couldn’t bring myself to hate it. I am still well on board the Benlos ship but I’ll live with this.
- Evie is literally perfect in every way??? Wow. I can’t believe Evie runs the whole kingdom. Sorry Ben, she’s in charge. Mal is the king’s bf but Evie’s the real royalty here.
- Evie & Mal are girlfriends it’s canon now did you see their love song duet
- Jay is a real friend – “ill drive you back myself”, “say hello to your new captain”, ready to slit bens throat at a moments notice if he hurts mal, what a guy
- Ben: *breaks up w Mal* Literally Everyone: Friendship ended with Ben, now Mal is my best friend
- THIS IS MY ROOM, CHAD.
- talking Dude was….. ehhh. i love Dude but that voice…… hes way less cute n endearing w it. Carlos’s frustrated “you’re lucky i love you” was cute tho
- speaking of talking Dude, when he showed up at the boat i legit thought he was ruin everything by blurting out that the wand was fake bc of the truth thing. thank god he didnt
- not sure if this is just me but the songs seemed sort of…. over-produced? compared to the last one? it was a little distracting honestly. also. why autotune ben. we know he can sing. he did it last time and it was good. why do that to him.
- i!! love!!! dizzy!!! what a cutie!!!! if she and all of evies other adopted children aren’t in the next movie im suing!!!!!!
- i hated carlos’s hair less than i thought i would but i still dont love it. mals was okay. evie was flawless as always. jay looks the exact same.
- lonnie is great and i support her in all her endeavors
- when ben roared on the boat i legit thought he was about to have a beast transformation and it would turn into a three way monster fight but nope. just normal human ben diving off the side of the boat to yell at two giant monsters that they need to listen and respect each other and work together to solve their conflict. who gave this boy permission to be so wonderful.
- mal: i have never done a good thing in my life, ever. ben: i know this and i love you.
- lowkey sad none of the villain parents made an appearance but that wouldve complicated the plot too much i guess. uma & her crew were plenty good anyways.
I read a lot of fic and the majority of it is larry. I like making lists and I like larry so I thought I’d do some minimal research of the top 25 larry fics published/completed in 2016 in order of least to most kudos (with links). All of these fics are top notch so you should all check them out!
An honorable mentions list will probably come soon, because there are so many brilliant fics that don’t reflect in their kudos.
He’s loud, Louis is, and that’s far from unusual for him, but the volume of it still has Harry pulling back the curtain. There’s a half-formed thought in the back of his brain about telling Louis off, because it’s fucking half three in the morning, but then.
But then Harry’s eyes get stuck on the soft glint of Louis’ stubble in the light, and he’s making his way across the room before he even realizes it.
Louis, for his part, just tips his chin up to give Harry space and keeps talking, waving the joint in his hand around for emphasis. He doesn’t even bother to greet Harry, going on with his story to his semi-rapt audience, just settles a hand in between Harry’s shoulder blades and pushes him down firmly.
Harry just. Relaxes. His eyes slip closed, pushing his entire face into that spot underneath Louis’ chin, where his hair is still growing, neat and prickly. The scent of Louis’ cologne drifts into Harry’s nose, light and fresh, and it’s calming. Comforting. His breathing syncs up with Louis’ quickly, and Harry feels so much better than he had five minutes ago he almost wants to cry.
Prompt: @imamotherfuckingstar-lord‘s song challenge - my song was ‘Here Comes Your Man’ by the Pixies. My character was Jim Kirk. I had SO much fun writing this. And listening to the Pixies. Word Count: 2111 Author’s Note: Oh Jim. You do make a girl’s heart go pitty-pat. I used the song lyrics as the section dividers - I think it kind of works thematically. You’ll have to believe me that I let the song lead the fic ;)
Outside there’s a box car waiting, Outside the family stew
The wind rushed through your ears as you flew down the highway on the old PX70, headed away toward the shipyard. You were determined to make the shuttle leaving for the academy, hell or high water. You smoothed down your hair as you dismounted from the bike, and stowed your keys in your pocket. The security guy at the perimeter raised an eyebrow at you.
“Last person came gunning in here like that left me his keys,” he winked. You rolled your eyes.
“That’s an antique. Probably worth more than the shuttle. I’m not giving it to you. My dad’ll be by to pick it up this afternoon,” you shot back, skipping a stair as you bounded onto the shuttle. Once you were buckled in, you closed your eyes and relaxed.
Out by the fire breathing, Outside we wait ‘til face turns blue
Jim Kirk. You remembered him, vaguely, from high school. He was that misunderstood genius delinquent that all the girls loved to get caught under the bleachers with. You’d fancied yourself interested at one point, but you’d never once caught his eye, and finally gave up, moving on to non-genius delinquents who were probably not as fun, but easily as much trouble. And really, two genius delinquents in one relationship was probably one too many anyhow.
After high school, you’d headed to university for engineering, and discovered your aptitude for mechanics. It had led to your hire at a shop that restored and updated old cars and motorcycles. When Christopher Pike had brought in an old motorcycle for a retrofit, he’d seen the way you worked and started the recruitment speech. He even went as far as to look you up, and throw your aptitude scoring back at you.
Which was how you wound up sitting behind Jim Kirk in a lecture of xenoanthropology in a command track class. All those repressed feelings from high school bubbled to the surface when you saw the line of his jaw, flexed with concentration. When the prof called on you to answer a complicated question about the Prime Directive, he turned and you saw a flash of recognition in those blue eyes. You smirked, somewhat lopsidedly, and winked at him before he turned back to his seat. You weren’t sure, but you thought his ears might be a bit redder.
Hey, so, I’m here again! I know I said requests were closed and they still are, but I just needed to write something because I’m bored as fuck, you guys can help me out by sending in requests for mood boards and ship. So, yeah, I really hope you enjoy it.
Namjoon; He’d would get angry, but wouldn’t show it. He’d hold it in, trying not to embarrass you in public but once you two got home he’d have it out with you. He wouldn’t get angry at you but he’d how upset he got, and how jealous he got watching that man- or women- drool over you.
Taehyung; The main thing he would do to make the person realise you’re his is to kiss you and hug you, more in a sexual way then anything. He’d put his hand round your waist, lower then usual and keep whispering in your ear, probably making this other person feel uncomfortable but get the point across that Tae is your boyfriend and not him.
Yonngi; Oh gosh, this guy would be given hell. Yoongi would got up to the guy you was talking to and just slaughter him saying stuff like “ya’ know, it’d be nice if you stop staring at my girl like that,” or “stare at my girl one more time and I’ll beat the shit out of you,”. If things escalated, he’d probably knock this guy out without a question.
Jhope; Hobi would get really upset, and try and pull you away from this guy or girl. It’d annoy him if you didn’t try walking away and continued to talk to him, however I don’t think he’d say anything as it’d probably cause an argument and he hates arguing with you.
Jimin; I think Jimin would just give dirty looks at the guys from a far, waiting for you to walk away from him just so he could go up to this guy and “have a word with him,”. This usually ended in a fist fight, and you having to calm Jimin down to stop him from killing this guy.
Jin; He’d get really, really, really upset. To the point where he doesn’t want to talk to you, he’d probably ignore you for a while and walk out the room when you walked in without telling you why. After he eventually talked to you he’d cry and say that he got jealous, thinking you was gonna leave him for “someone better” [ha, that’s not possible]. But you would obviously reassure him that there was nothing further from the truth.
“Jin, I would never leave you. You’re all I want. Everything I need is right here, right here with you,”
Jungkook; This is Jungkook, and we all know he’d get irritated. Not just with this guy who was flirting with you, but with you as well. He’d get annoyed that you didn’t say you had a boyfriend, and that you didn’t try walking off from whoever this person was. It’d probably start a massive fight between you because his jealously would always get the better of him, however by the end of the night he’d end up apologising for his petty and unnecessary behaviour.
~ Hey-ho, so that’s it and it’s obviously ten times better then my last one. And actually kind of enjoyed writing this one, so I’m questing if I should open my request again, idk maybe I will.
For the AU thing- the world NEEDS more merman!Victor and Pirate!Yuuri. Yuuri saves Victor from a roadside freakshow (circus?)
As soon as Yuuri locked eyes with him, he knew he couldn’t leave without him.
He sneaked away from his crew that evening to avoid drinking too much at the bar before setting out the sea the next morning. He heard there was some kind of circus nearby so he decided to go check it out. He only told his right hand mate Phichit where he was going, in case the captain hadn’t returned by dawn.
The banner flapping outside the tent in the wind depicted a painted image of a beautiful mermaid that looked like it had the eyes of an angel. Yuuri was always curious about mermaids since he first started sailing the seas from Hasetsu ocean, but he had never encountered one. These days mermaids were written as myths, but still Yuuri sailed on board his ship hoping one day he would meet one.
And he did. But not in the way that he had expected.
He saw enclosed in a tank just a bit larger than the creature itself a lonely merman with flowing long silver hair. It was floating towards the bottom of the tank, uninterested in the audience surrounding him, shouting at him to do something, poking and pounding on the glass that made the merman shrink back and wince in fear. His caretaker, some grumpy old man in an old hat, only cared enough to make sure no one climbed in the tank or that nothing was thrown in to pollute the water.
Yuuri hated the sight. The beautiful creature didn’t deserve this.
So he waited till after the show, till the merman was left alone in the back area of the tank. Yuuri sneaked past the guards by bribing them with a bottle of rum, pleading to just get a glimpse of the merman as a dream since he was a child. It wasn’t a lie, but he had to be convincing and innocent on outer appearance.
As soon as they met eyes again, Yuuri held up a finger to not make a sound. The merman stared back at him with wide eyes, curiously drawn to Yuuri’s appearance since he did not seem like a normal spectator.
Instead Yuuri leaned as close to the glass as he could so that the merman could hear him above a whisper.
“Do you want to escape?”
The merman blinked for a moment. Yuuri wasn’t sure if he understood English, but suddenly the merman nodded. He swam swiftly up to the top of the tank where Yuuri met him halfway and pulled him out.
They ran. Or well, Yuuri ran, while the merman was carried in his arms.
It was almost dawn, but before Phichit could worry about where their captain had run off to, the crew spotted him carrying a beautiful merman in his arms.
“I want to set him free in the ocean. But we can’t do it here, people will see and search for him once they know I’ve taken them,” Yuuri quickly explained before anyone could get a word out. Prepare the water in my bath. We’re sailing back to Hasetsu Ocean.”
The crew scrambled on his orders, Phichit only giving Yuuri a coy smile before being pushed by the captain’s boot to go prepare the bath.
Yuuri carefully set the merman inside the tub, Phichit giving them alone time and orders to set sail before the sun was up. Yuuri sighed as he sat on a stool, watching the merman carefully.
“Sorry, it’s smaller than your tank, but it’s the only thing big enough to hold a…person and water at the same time,” Yuuri explained.
He nearly jumped and fell off his stool when the merman finally spoke.
“Thank you for rescuing me,” he spoke in a melodic voice. Almost like a siren, but not as tempting to drown yourself.
“Y-You can understand me?” Yuuri stammered.
“I’ve picked up the language from traveling so much on land, well being transported I mean,” the merman noted. “You don’t know how much it means to me to finally be free from that freakshow.”
“Well I couldn’t bear to leave you there. Mermaids and mermen don’t belong in tanks,” Yuuri frowned.
“So are you a sailor?” The merman looks curiously around the ship’s bathing room.
“Pirate, actually, but I’m more interested in sailing rather than treasure,” Yuuri tells him. “I’m the captain of this ship.”
“And does a captain have a name?”
“Yuuri, the U is pronounced longer since I’m Japanese,” Yuuri pronounced.
“Japan? How wonderful, Japan sounds lovely. I was originally from a coast off of Spain, but my name has more of a Russian sound to it. I’m Viktor.”
“Viktor, well it’s nice to meet you. Ah sorry we can’t chart a course to Spain, it would take too many days so we’re heading back to Japan.”
“That’s alright, I’d much prefer to start a new life, and no doubt once they find I’m missing they’ll suspect I’ve headed back to my former home.”
They shared stories and eventually Viktor was carried to the captain’s quarters where he met the crew. Yuuri made them swear secrecy about this or he’d have a private word with them, which was rarely ever good.
Once they made it to Hasetsu Ocean at their private cove, Yuuri carried Viktor to the waters.
“Well, I guess this is goodbye,” Yuuri smiled at his merman companion who he’d gotten to know pretty well during their journey home. He did his best to hold back the salty tears in his eyes.
Viktor seemed reluctant to go.
“Can’t I stay with you? You said your family runs an inn and a huge bath!” Viktor almost pleaded in his voice, holding onto Yuuri’s hand.
“I don’t think a hot springs is a place for a merman. Besides, you can be free now, live a new life,” Yuuri urged, but not wanting to let go either
Viktor suddenly pulled him down into the water, the pirate letting out a yelp as water splashed his clothes and he was pulled close against Viktor.
Viktor pressed a kiss to his lips.
“You’re the greatest hidden treasure I have found Yuuri,” Viktor confessed once they broke apart for air.
“Stop being sappy,” Yuuri choked, a mix of tears and salt water dripping down his face. “You’re mine too. I’m sure we’ll see each other again, someday.”
Yuuri watched as Viktor splashed his magnificent tail in his face and disappeared into the ocean horizon, taking a piece of his heart with him.
Ten years later…
Yuuri settled in retiring from sailing and as a pirate. His crew dispersed around the world moving onto other occupations and new lives. He never saw Viktor again since that day, but it didn’t stop him for heading down to the beach every morning, listening to the gulls and the waves.
There was an article in the newspaper dated a week after Yuuri released Viktor into the ocean, about the freakshow losing their main attraction that had mysteriously gone missing. No one had ever found out who helped him escape and the guards that were on duty were too drunk from rum to remember. They would’ve sent out a search party, but oddly enough their ships had been left in a state not well enough to sail. Yuuri’s crew might’ve had a hand to it, but no one caught any proof. The freakshow was cancelled for good, so Yuuri was at ease for Viktor’s safety.
Yuuri didn’t marry or start a family yet. His family worried about his loneliness, but Yuuri was content with having part of his heart and his love taken into the sea.
One fateful morning Yuuri walked down to the ocean again as usual. He still didn’t expect to see Viktor again, but as he let his poodle Vicchan (whom he named after a certain merman) run around the sand, Yuuri stopped.
Standing naked before him on the beach, with eyes of an angel, short platinum hair that still flowed in the breeze as if it was underwater, holding a piece of Yuuri’s heart with a smile on his face was a man without a fin.
“V-Viktor?” Yuuri thought he was dreaming.
The man beamed at him and held his arms open wide.

A/N: another long part filled with nonsense. this part really got away from me tbh, it’ll be totally back on track soon. it just doesn’t feel believable to me to have something intense happen every time (although, arguably, believability is shot to hell when you’re writing about a sci-fi franchise). i wanted this story to be more about the reader and their feelings and jim and his feelings. i hope his feelings toward the reader are obvious without me having to point blank write them– like i hope you can tell through mannerisms. anyway, i’ve had a trying week and apologize if i missed some typos. lemme know if you wanna be tagged! ENJOY AND TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK
The artifact was becoming a pain— something you could say literally after the ancient hunk of metal scalded the skin of your palm and wrist, and something you could say figuratively after you were forced out of your oven-like temporary quarters more often than not for the past three days.
According to a drunken, loud-mouthed Ensign Chekov, the Enterprise had flown through a nebula that threw off the ship’s electrical balance. It caused the air systems, the warp core, and practically every electronic on the ship to be knocked out of equilibrium and into much more volatile, unpredictable states— a statement you could confirm due to the onset timing of the artifact’s volatility.
When it came to the air systems, cool air would blast out of the vent when warm air was desired and vice versa. As for the warp core, several engineers found themselves in the medbay clutching burns from the core’s overheating while electronics such as communicators and PADDs shorted out, shut off, and came back to life upon whim.
Hearing that all the malfunctions were due to a nebula was a relief but the initial worry you experienced lingered a little. You wondered if the problems were being exacerbated by the artifact and almost had your suspicions confirmed when rumor had it the ship’s chief engineer, Scotty claimed this particular nebula couldn’t have been the only cause for so many issues.
You found yourself wishing you’d taken Jim up on his offer to explain to you why the artifact was so important. You also found yourself wishing you could pry a window open and throw the damn thing into the dark abyss of space— no amount of tuition was worth the pain it was causing you and the potential pain it could cause the hundreds of people on board.
As you sat atop a biobed in Exam Room 1 of the medbay, you swung your legs in order to appear more nonchalant than your ever-circulating thoughts actually had you feeling. You watched McCoy stand with his back against the edge of the counter, his hazel eyes narrowed as he read the screen of his PADD with his most casual frown.
“You can tell me if I’m dying— I’m strong enough to take it.”
I think everyone misinterpreted how smart shippers are which is why S/MM never sold in the first place. We are a smart bunch. You know when people usually revert to name calling? When all their attempts fail to do something and they are out of options. This mess has been going on for over a year with the same pattern that has never ever worked. So we're the delusional shippers who can't tell our ass from a hole in the ground apparently bc we believe SC are together. The irony is that we all-(p1)
(p3)-on the show yet this mess has cost them dearly in regards to this fanbase and the free promotion of the show and publicity to their charities. I’m still selfishly hoping you guys come around and the rainbow (omg totally not intentional ;-)) after this bday storm will show eventually bc I’m still on board the ship. You know what though? In the scheme of how Network/SC have screwed themselves I don’t really matter. I’m an anon who contributes by writing YOU guys. If your blogs disappear I’m not going to magically come out and be the new super blog. What’s going to happen is going to be an even more diminishing fandom bc a lot of anons who still enjoy the show/SC will have no outlet to showcase it bc you/Jess/etc are our outlet. With what I said about what your blogs do for them..I can’t believe they don’t care about that. They’d have to be dumb not to realize the downfall though. Then again maybe we see something they don’t bc we are the smart bunch
I never got part 2 of this but you make such good points! I can only speak for myself when I say I still think Sam and Cait are together but I’m done shipping. I’m separating it. I can think they’re together and not ship. Does that make sense? And the reason I’m keeping my blog open is because I know there are people, like yourself, who come to me and Jess and Lauren etc who don’t want to open a blog for whatever reason and it’d be so unfair to you guys to take that away. For all the bullshit I get in my inbox, 95% of the messages are lovely and thoughtful and sweet, like this one. But yes I agree. The more people pack up and leave and/or delete their blogs, the fandom is going to go back to being middle aged women who don’t understand social media so they use it to tweet pics of their boobs to Sam. How sad. But it’s apparently what someone(s) with power wanted so they’re getting their way. Maybe it’ll make the fandom less of a shitshow, who knows. I don’t feel like continuing to feed that power, whether it’s Sam and Cait or some asshole boss at Starz. I’m done giving them power over me and I’m done providing free promo for their show. It’s not and never has been worth it. And, like you said, that’s their loss! but I hope you stick around anon! I’d like for things to get better.
Hey, one actually somewhat productive thing! That’s two Green Lanterns done, now.
