anonymous asked:

What's your favorite thing about Nack?

Oh man I have to pick just one thing?????

I have to say it’s how… goofy he is. 

I know some folks like to portray him a bit more seriously but like… even in his debut game, he was a doofus.

He’s not stupid - he just makes dumb choices because his ego gets the better of him. As he himself pointed out in the comics, he’s caught Sonic at least twice, by himself. He kidnapped Sally (and got his nuts cronched but still). Post-reboot, he had a clear shot at both Sonic and Knuckles and very likely would have gotten the job done if Metal Sonic hadn’t appeared. 

He’s clever, but he’s also a very fun character to watch because even when he’s being the universe’s chew toy, he’s still a very real threat to Sonic and the others. 

Like, he’s just a really fun character. And I love how different people will balance his personality differently - some writers like to write him a bit more seriously, while others exaggerate the goofiness. It’s all good.

I mean, I also could go on about how I love how “>:D” he gets when things are going his way and his odd temper, his ego, or his relationship with the rest of Team Hooligan.

… Can I just answer this by saying everything? My favorite thing about Nack the weasel is everything.

what was johnny cade like before he was jumped?

did he still smile widely when he was with his friends, even if he was treated awfully at home? did he laugh at stupid things ponyboy said; at two-bit’s awful jokes and steve’s creative insults?

was he full of hope? did he always believe there was something better waiting for him somewhere? did he trust people? was he open and loving, his every emotion clear on his face?

could he go somewhere by himself and not have to be afraid?

did dally love the other johnny better? did he constantly dream of johnny being how he was before? did he only want the boy he loved to smile more and laugh for no reason; to not have to be afraid of sudden movements and loud noises; certain sounds that reminded him of sharp rings on callused fingers and not being able to breathe right?

did dally think of johnny after he got beat up and cry silently into his shitty pillow at buck’s, trying to keep his shit together because he was supposed to be the strong one? did he sob quietly, because all he wanted was for johnny to be happy, and he should have been there to do something, and johnny couldn’t be fixed?

did they cry together sometimes; johnny shirtless and bruised, dally trying to quiet him while inwardly breaking? did they ache for something better, sharing dally’s last cigarette under a flickering street lamp at three in the morning?

they were never really okay, were they?

they weren’t.

A Lesson Steven Universe can Learn from Adventure Time

Adventure Time is ending soon, and honestly I don’t know exactly how to feel. I’m not exactly caught up on the series, but I freaking love the show! It’s what got me back into animation and broke me out of the stupid “tv animation is for kids” mentality. Many credit the show for bringing back quality animation to TV, if it wasn’t for Adventure Time we would’ve never gotten Steven Universe (for many reasons, one being that Rebecca Sugar worked on Adventure Time before starting Steven Universe). Now a days, the Adventure Time fandom has dwindled a bit and Steven Universe has pretty much replaced it, which is a shame because I still think Adventure Time is a good show. I might still think it’s slightly better than Steven Universe (OMG did I just say that?). At least it does do some things better than Steven Universe (and SU does do some things better than it).

Let’s look at some of the things Adventure Time Does Better. I think it’s better at world building than SU, it’s more creative, its stories are more varied, it’s more experimental, and its non story arc episodes are better. Now to be fair, Steven Universe and Adventure Time are structured differently. Steven Universe is more story arc driven while Adventure Time is more about the smaller stories or adventures. Yet Steven Universe is not a purely story driven show, there’s a lot of “filler episodes” that don’t develop the larger story arc (in fact, there isn’t a story arc in the show right now). There are a lot of people who complain about these episodes, but I personally don’t hate the Beach City Episodes (that’s what I call episodes that are about the residents of Beach City) but they could be a lot better. Now let me list a bunch of great Adventure Time episodes: I Remember You, Princess Monster Wife, Thank You, Root Beer Guy, Jake the Brick, Simon & Marcy, BMO Lost, Gold Star, Dark Purple, Sky Witch, a lot of Stakes and more. Why did I list those episodes, because they all had one thing in common, they barely featured Finn. Now Finn is overall the main character of the show, but in those episodes, he wasn’t the main character. That brings me to my main point, Steven Universe needs to be less involved in Steven Universe.

Now I don’t hate the kid, he’s very likable. Finn is likable as well, but there are reasons him not being too involved in certain episodes work. It allows other characters in the show to get the spotlight and get some good character development. In Steven Universe, Steven is almost always involved in everyone’s stories to a degree (many would say he’s too involved). Some episodes really would’ve improved if Steven was much less involved or in the focus, such as Onion Gang. Onion Gang was the last episode released at the time of the posting, and it wasn’t really that good. The biggest problem in the episode was Steven himself. He wasn’t unlikable, but he wouldn’t shut up, he acted uncharacteristically dumb, the episode ended with Steven having a pity party since Onion wasn’t completely dependent on his friendship (until it turns out Onion was dependent on his friendship outside of the summer so no lessons were learned) and it was one of those episodes that made me go “seriously Steven, you’re 14!” He was weighing down the episode is what I’m saying. Now imagine if the episode didn’t feature Steven that much. The episode would feature Onion meeting the Soup gang and they would probably go on an adventure. The episode probably wouldn’t involve much dialogue, giving Steven Universe a chance to show it’s visual story telling props like Thank You did with Adventure Time. It would’ve at least made the episode more memorable.

Now not every episode that should’ve featured Steven less were because Steven is annoying (he usually isn’t) it’s because it would’ve been stronger character development. Seeing how characters interact without Steven on their normal everyday lives or on a little adventure gives the chance to develop their characters more. Peridot rarely learns a lesson by her a volition, it usually involves Steven telling her what’s right and what’s wrong so her changes aren’t usually as compelling. In Drop Beat Dad, we spend most of the time with Steven so Sour Cream’s story is not nearly as compelling since he isn’t really the focus. Seeing a story from different character’s points of views would develop them a lot more, and seeing how they interact with the world outside of Steven or with other characters would make their characters more three-dimensional. The point of these “filler episodes” are to build world and build characters, but it’s sometimes hard when Steven shows up and distracts focus from those characters, or is just there being extraneous. Imagine if in Sky Witch, Finn went on the adventure too and we constantly had him making comments. It really would’ve detracted from the episodes and the Bubbline shipper bait. It would’ve also been a weight on the story since Finn wouldn’t have had a reason to be there outside of him being the main character. That’s how I kind of feel about Steven being included in episodes that he isn’t needed like Too Short to Ride. The next episode in the show is Gem Harvest and it seems to be about Lapis and Peridot raising a pumpkin pet. Well in theory it might, but chances are Steven is going to stick around the whole episode and be an unnecessary third wheel. Which would you prefer? An episode about Peridot and Lapis raising a pumpkin, or an episode about Peridot, Lapis and Steven raising a pumpkin. I’m not even a lapidot shipper and I know that I would rather have the episode  be about just Lapis and Peridot.

Now chances for character development isn’t the only reasons I feel like Steven should be less prominent in more episodes, it’s also chances for world building. In Adventure Time there are many episodes starring other characters and usually the world becomes bigger. In Thank You we see an Ice Giant rescue a fire wolf pup and return it to its world. We see how the Ice Giant lives, how the fire wolves lives, and world expands. There are many Adventure Time episodes like that and the world is huge because of it. In Steven Universe, Steven is always involved with everything. In Restaurant Wars, he starts the war and then ends it. In Political Power, the gems are responsible for the power outage and Steven ends up calming the crowd down. In Future Boy Zoltron, most of the episode is about Steven until he meets Frowney and hooks him up with Smiley. There are many episodes like that. The fact that Steven always has to be involved makes the world of Steven Universe feel smaller. Like all of the characters don’t have stories unless Steven is present. I feel like if Steven wasn’t always involved it would make the world bigger and the characters more complex. I think that’s definitely a lesson Steven Universe can take from Adventure Time. 

PS: Yes, I know that there are technically some episodes that don’t feature Steven that much, but those barely count because they are usually being told to him as a story and involves the past like We Need to Talk, Garnet’s Universe, The Answer, and Buddy’s Book. I’m just thinking some of the episodes that take place in the present should involve less. 

Back To Basics

Pairing: Fred x Reader

Request: Hi, i love you’re writing so much! cn i request a oneshot where YN pranks Fred and he ends up confessing that he loves her or something like that and just really fluffy and all the Gryffindors all ship it and stuff! thanks!

A/N: this will come of no surprise to you, but I’m still a bit drunk from last night and am battling a hangover, so please pardon any errors! 

Squicks: slight innuendo


Fred and George certainly live up to their pranking reputations: they had somehow cast a spell or spiked your drink or something so that every time you open your mouth to speak, you make dolphin noises. You weren’t best friends with them or anything like that, but you did get along pretty well. Rather than scolding them on their stupid (yet admittedly funny) prank, you had a better idea: get them back.

The next morning, you knocked on the door of the boys’ dormitory. You had Potions this morning in about half an hour and hadn’t even had breakfast, and you had lent Fred Weasley your text book the night before.

“Hey Y/n, whatcha need?” his identical twin asked, tightening his tie as he opened the door,

“I lent Fred my book last night and we’ve got Potions soon… Is he still in bed?” You ask, peering around George to see, as you suspected, Fred still in his bed.

George turns around to face his brother and gives a chuckle, “yeah, he woke up for a bit about an hour ago, saying something about how we are in our prime youth and we can’t afford to waste it on shitty teachers or something like that”.

A few of the other Gryffindor boys said good morning to you as you walk into the room, up to Fred’s bed with your hands on your hips, shaking your head with a smile on your face, laughing “what an idiot”.

Now, in your head, you had planned to just get your revenge by turning his possessions into otters or something this afternoon, but now you were having second thoughts. Not because Fred looks adorable still sleeping or anything, but rather the fact that you had just seen a better opportunity for pranking him.

“Anyway, I can grab that book for you if you— WOW what are you doing?!” George asks in alarm.

You had just took your shirt off, leaving you standing in the middle of the boys’ dormitory in a bra and pyjama shorts,

You earn a few wolf-whistles and quiet “what the hell”s, before turning around to face George, “Getting him back,” you reply, “but unlike you, I don’t need to use magic,” you say with a smile, as you carefully pull back the covers of Fred’s bed and slide in next to him, taking off your shorts as well once you’re covered and tossing them out the side of the bed.

Fred was fast asleep, lying on his back with his arm stretched out next to him, where you rested your head and lay on your side facing him. At this point all of the boys in the common room were standing around the bed, looking at the two of you with quizzical looks.

Fred began to stir, before lazily rolling onto his side, his other arm instinctively wrapping around you. The boys in the room all try and muffle their laughters to not wake Fred, but it didn’t work as he gave a little jump to the sudden noise, his eyes fluttering open to see you pretending to be asleep in his arms.

“What the hell?” Fred asks himself in a whisper.

You take this as the right time to pretend to wake up. You open your eyes, looking at Fred with a smile, “Morning, Freddie,” you say in a flirty voice, moving closer to him and placing a hand on his bare chest and nuzzling your head into the crook of his neck. The boys all standing around began to holler, laugh and whistle at the two of you, especially Fred with his eyes widened and looking around frantically.

“Class is in ten minutes you two, you better get dressed Y/n,” George says. 

Fred’s eyes open even wider somehow, as he (without thinking his actions through fully) pulls the covers up to see your half naked body, his mouth dropping,

“Fred!” You squeal, tucking into a ball and giggling a little, as he quickly covers you up again, turning onto his back with his free hand clasped over his mouth, staring up at the ceiling in shock.

The boys in the dormitory were clearly stalling, packing and unpacking their books so that they could stay to see what happens.

“Fred…” you began in a worried voice, “…Don’t you remember what happened last night?”

Fred looked over at you, on your side propped up on one elbow to see him properly. He admires you for a moment, taking in the way your hair falls around your shoulders, and your eyes staring into his… Those eyes are what made him fall in love with you when he first met you.

After a few moments of silence and Fred staring at you, you mumble “how could you”.

“Wait, Y/n, I can explain—“ Fred begins, but is cut off by your abrupt actions,

HOW COULD YOU FRED WEASLEY?!” You scream as you jump out of bed, grabbing a pillow and begin whacking him with it, “HOW COULD YOU NOT REMEMBER, YOU DICK!”

“Y/N IM SORRY, I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON,” Fred shouts back in panic as he covers his head with his arms to try and block the pillow,

“Do you really think that little of me?! Do you seriously not care enough about me to even remember what we did last night, HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME?!” you start to sob loudly and over exaggeratingly, throwing the pillow one last time, before turning around where you stood so your back was facing him, as you bury your face in your hands and pretend to cry loudly.

The boys in the common room had stopped being discreet about staying in the room now, their full attention on you and Fred, who was sat up in bed with his hands in his hair looking terrified.

“Y/n, I’m so sorry… I don’t know why I can’t remember, honestly I…” Fred stops to take a deep, shaky breath, before he too buries his face in his hands, shaking his head. You had started to think that you may have taken this too far, since he looked really worried, but before you could tell him it was all a joke, he continued,

“Y/n, I’ve loved you from our first day at Hogwarts… I don’t know what’s happened… I’ve been wanting to tell you how I feel for so long now… And I don’t know what’s happening…” Fred says as he stands in front of you, holding your hands in his, his eyes starting to water, “I just woke up and you were… I’d never use you like that Y/n I promise, I’m so so sorry…” he says before legitimately crying, shaking his head.

“Oh God, Fred, no!” You say frantically, wrapping him in a tight hug, feeling really really bad now.

The boys that had decided to stay back all “awww’d” and gave worried looks to one another.

“Fred… Shit, nothing happened, it was fake!” you say worriedly,

Fred looks up, his eyes red and puffy, “What?” he croaks out,

“Freddie, I got into your bed just before you woke up, i wanted to trick you into thinking that something happened last night and I didn’t mean for it to get this far… God Fred, I’m so sorry,” You can see the hurt in his eyes, realising that he had not only been tricked into thinking he had taken advantage of you, but also, he had just confessed his love for you.

“But Fred, what you said about loving me… I hope that was true,” you say hopefully, “Because I’ve loved you for a while now too”.

“Okay boys, now it’s time to leave,” George says as he ushers people out of the room, leaving you two alone.

“You’re not just saying that because you feel sorry for me, are you?” Fred asks hesitantly,

“No Fred, I’m not lying to you again, I promise. It got way too out of hand and I didn’t think of how it would all turn out and I just—”

Before you could finish rambling your apologies, Fred’s arms had pulled you towards him, and he had attached his lips to yours. Not forcefully, but gently yet abruptly.

The two of you stood there in his dormitory kissing for what felt like ages, yet still not long enough, before breaking away,

“I’ll admit, it was a pretty good prank, Y/n,” Fred chuckles, looking down at you, “But what I like even better is the view I’m getting right now,”

You remember that you were still in nothing but your lingerie, quickly bending down to retrieve your clothes and hurriedly put them back on, Fred laughing as you do so.

Once you were dressed and had both stopped giggling, you wrap your arms around his neck, “Fred, I honestly am sorry about scaring you like that,” you say sincerely,

“Don’t be, the outcome was worth it,” He says, before tilting your head upwards so that he can kiss you again, making it clear that Potions wasn’t happening today.

“Braindead Leafy fans”

Look, as a fan of Leafy, I know he is problematic. He fucks up a lot. But when he fucks up, his fans are gonna be the first people to call him out on his bullshit. And YES he does make his transitions a bit too long. Yes, he is offensive. Yes, he says stupid shit. Obviously he isn’t the most attractive person on earth. He does repeat things all the time. He has unnecessary shit in his videos that makes it longer. He does a bunch of other bullshit. I KNOW. I fucking know. However, I still love and support that fucking Leaf boy. Why? Because he makes me laugh. He puts a smile of my face. He makes my day better. And despite everythingI truly believe that he’s actually a nice guy.  Yes he’s far from perfect and I’m perfectly fine with that.

I’m surprised i like poetry
I used to think it was all stupid
Rhymed words that never make sense
Maybe some of it still is
But you showed me somehow
That its better than all that
Simpler
Its how we describe
Why our stomachs tie themselves in knots
Why my hands are burning away
And the only thing stopping them from
Crumbling into ashes
Are yours

ad astra per aspera (a rough road leads to the stars)

@flange5 is terrible because she likes to send me headcanons for headcanons:

Because I am terrible, I’m imagining Tony buying Steve a star every year after he gets out of the ice. Even during the CW. Even after he ‘dies.’ He actually does it twice the year of the brain delete because, well, he doesn’t remember the first time. 

He doesn’t tell Steve. Ever. Especially now that Steve will barely speak to him after the incursions and everything else. But he just can’t help himself. It still feels like such a great metaphor, you know? The perfect light he can’t touch but which is all the better for that. There’s something almost therapeutic about putting Steve’s name, variations of it, his epithets, nicknames, even the stupid things the baddies called him in fights years ago, on the stars. 

Steve actually finds out when it comes up on an astronomy show as a bit of trivia. Even though Tony’s been doing it anonymously, and the show doesn’t say who it was, floating the idea of maybe a fan club or something, when they call him to ask for a comment, he knows immediately, and he doesn’t even know what he says. It must be vaguely acceptable, because they go away.

Your choice where it goes from there, whether Steve at first gets mad and sees it as an attempt to manipulate or buy his way, or if he recognizes it, or if he just misses his friend. 

Or buys him a star and sees if Tony notices. 

I have this total vision of them sending messages in a bottle via stars, neither of them admitting that this is them tentatively rebuilding their friendship. Meanwhile, a few astronomers are following it on twitter, not knowing who is having this epic conversation, but completely shipping it. 

Eventually, they actually have to meet bc heroing, and it’s harder, but they are able to do it.

And later they can literally tell people, should they choose, that (hee) their relationship is written in the stars.

It literally brought tears to my eyes and so I just had to try writing SOMETHING for it.

Infatuation and Allergies

So this is from a prompt/head cannon by @randomdraggon
I don’t know how to link on mobile. Anyway, it’s longer than I was going for with my short writings but I finished it pretty quickly and am looking for more prompts for short works for Overwatch pairings if anyone has them.

Infatuation and Allergies

Jesse was fucked, not that it was anything new, but still it was worth repeating. Commander Reyes had been in a bad mood and of course the cowboy couldn’t help but notice that he wasn’t just irritated or angry, something had him legitimately upset. So what does he do? He went out and bought the man a bunch of wildflowers to try to make the super soldier feel better.

It was stupid, but they smelled wonderful and he hoped that they would brighten up his office and his day. Gabe worked too long and too hard as it was already, the least McCree could do was to try to help alleviate a bit of that stress with some cheer. And, if he still held onto the old crush he had on his commander the past few years, well nobody had to know that was a part of the reason. It’s not like he was getting the man a bouquet of red roses. Jesse McCree may not always be the smartest guy in the room, but even he wasn’t stupid enough to try something that forward.

It was easier than he had feared to lose his nerve on the way to meet the man, but luckily he had a plan b just in case. All he had to do was sneak into the commander’s office while he was out for any number of reasons and leave the flowers in a vase on the man’s desk with a note and retreat before the man returned. The note was unsigned, it merely read ‘I hope these brighten up your day.’

Breaking into his superior’s office used to be a nerve wracking experience that would leave the cowboy paranoid for the rest of the day at least. Today however, he felt lighter than air after having done so. The thought of Reyes returning to find a face of colorful and wonderful smelling flowers to brighten his dreary mood raised the younger agents own spirits considerably. There wasn’t a damn thing that could dampen his mood, at least until he found himself in the mess hall that night.

That was when he saw it. The vase of flowers he had snuck into Gabriel’s room had been thrown into the trash in the communal mess hall. He tried not to let it show, but the silent rejection hurt far more than he would ever admit. Those soaring spirits fell, hard and fast. The cowboy hadn’t felt this lost and hurt since Reyes dragged him kicking and screaming out of Deadlock almost six years ago. Without even realizing it McCree had lost track of time, snapping back into focus when a familiar voice startled him.

“Jesse!” The strike commander’s voice pulled him back to reality and he had to stifle a groan. He was not in the mood to handle other people right now, especially not Jack. The man was always to good at picking up on McCree’s moods and always wanted to help. “You look like shit kid,” Jesse found that he couldn’t return the man’s playful grin.

“Sorry sir. Bad day,” Was all he could bring himself to say. He shrugged and tried to keep moving, away from the blonde. If he could make it to his room he would be safe.

“Come with me Jesse!” The strike commander’s tone was hard and commanding suddenly. He wanted to scream It was the voice he used that demanded obedience. McCree had even seen it work on Reyes from time to time, no one but Jack Morrison could do that. It really meant that there was no getting out of this without dealing with whatever Morrison wanted.

It took the cowboy several minutes to realize that Jack wasn’t leading him to his office, they were nearing the commander’s private quarters instead. That was new, he could count on one hand the number of times he had seen any commander’s room. He had figured he was in trouble, now he wasn’t so sure and that just made him even more nous than before.

Eventually they went inside. Jack had a big room, that was the first thing the younger agent thought as they passed the threshold. It was decorated with pictures more than anything else. He took the seat he was offered as Morrison left the room briefly in, leaving Jesse to free to scan around the room. Most of the pictures were of their team members and their families, Jack was in many, but nowhere near all of them. The man looked like he loved the company and the memories. Jesse’s confusion as to what he was doing here redoubled when the blonde returned handing him a beer.

“Thank ya kindly,” He drawled taking the proffered drink. He wasn’t sure what was going on, but he wasn’t going to question not being in trouble and drinking with his boss. Jack indeed joined him, the two of them drinking in silence for a few minutes. It was a pleasant change. Jesse hadn’t spent any amount of time just relaxing the commander Morrison in years, they were both busy. Hell he barely got to see Ana and Fareeha these days.

“So, you left Reyes some flowers today?” The accusation hung heavily in the air. The blonde’s voice was soft, but it had McCree on edge. Jack did not respond well to lies, even still Jesse was tempted.

“Yes sir,” He slumped defeated at the admission.

“Allergies,”

“Huh?”

“He’s allergic. That’s why he threw them away,” The blonde explained softly. “Even as a super soldier he never got over it, just handles it better than he used to. Shame too, he actually likes flowers,”

“Shit, so I got him sick?” Now the cowboy was worried Reyes was going to think he was trying to mess with him or something.

“Nah he’s fine. If you’re trying to brighten his day chocolates work wonders. He’ll never admit it but he’s got a huge sweet tooth,”

“Why are you giving me advice,”

“One, I like you. Two, we’ve tried to help, maybe you’ll be able to cheer him up. Three, He likes you,” Jesse wished he had more control then and there, because he couldn’t stop himself from grinning like an idiot at the thought.

“Any idea where I can find some chocolates?” Jesse asked quickly, deflecting the attention away from his grin and the burning in his face.

“I’ve got a nice box of Swiss chocolates,” The cowboy raised an eyebrow. “What? You didn’t think I called you here without a plan did you?” He quickly retrieved the sweets, still cold from the refrigerator. “I’ve also got a sweet tooth, but this is a good cause.”

“Thanks Jack!” Jesse jumped out of his seat excitedly. “Sorry to run, but I’ve got a great idea to go with these chocolates and I gotta run,”

“Good luck Jesse!” The blonde called after him with a soft smile on his lips as the man in the Stetson dashed down the hallway like a bat outta hell.

His best friend in this place should be around here somewhere. He needed Genji’s help for the second part of this gift/apology. Eventually, he found the cyborg in the middle of one of his checkups. He ambushed the other man as soon as he stepped out of Angela’s clutches.

“I need your help Genji,” He said way too fast.

“What’s wrong?” The cyborg asked both annoyed and concerned.

“I need you to help me make some of those pretty paper flowers like you showed me a while back,”

“Why?” The ninja asked, at least slightly confused.

“Because I messed up and I need to apologize but he’s allergic to real flowers and this is the next best thing I could think of,” McCree was sure that Genji would likely make fun of him, but as long as he helped him it wouldn’t matter too much.

“Okay, I don’t have the best selection of paper right now, but come on I’m sure we can get something vaguely respectable still. I mean we have to try real hard to impress the commander,” Jesse rolled his eyes, he could feel the eyebrow wiggle that the cyborg must have been doing underneath his mask. If that was as far as the teasing went this was going to be easy.

Jesse had to wait until dinner that evening for his commander to leave his office again before he could sneak back in and set his second plan in motion. When his commander got back he would find a nice box of Swiss chocolate in the midst of a pseudo bouquet of brilliant, and not so brilliant paper flowers. His note this time read ‘Sorry about the flowers. Didn’t know they would be a problem. Hope you like these ones a might better. -McCree’

He would never have found the nerve to sign his name if Jack hadn’t mentioned that Gabe liked him too, at least he hoped the strike commander meant it like that. He hoped it wasn’t too forward, I mean it was just a feel better gift after all. It was no big deal. The next morning he caught a glance of the man smiling that hard, barely there smile he wore when he was in a good mood, eating a bit of sweet chocolate. Jesse nearly melted on the spot. Yeah, he was so very fucked alright.

anonymous asked:

honestly im so glad someone else has/is reading the books cuz sometimes i feel like one of the only ones who loves both the show and the books

I actually really like the books!! I encourage people to give them a shot. I honestly strayed away from them because everyone made them sound terrible but I quite like them. Book Clarke is great, she’s definetly less savage then show Clarke and I find her character less developed but still good, Bellamy is hilarious and super sarcastic and you get a better look at his childhood, Wells is alive and you can tell Jason tooks bits and pieces of book Wells and incorporated them into Bellamy’s character on the show, but Wellamy in the books is terrific and they actually like love eachother by the 3rd book. People made bellarke sound super rushed and like any other stupid teen book relationship and I mean they do kiss after a few days on earth but they don’t immediately start anything, and most of their scenes are so comical and cute I wish Jason would put them in the show. Bellarke in the books is actually super similar to Bellarke in the show, the way they joke with eachother. Also it’s clear Jason read the books and made notes on them because he’s copied a lot of quotes word for word and he’s kept scenes from the books and it just further has convinced me that bc is endgame.

Also there’s less plot holes, like the book actually explains where tf the grounders came from, and they’re not just like total “blood must have blood” savages. And you find out more history about the Ark. There’s also 2 extra characters, Glass and Luke, who are super fuking cute and like their relationship is truly the best part of the books and jason can choke for dropping them tbh. They would have been so good, im mad

tbh i think the way sherlock would come out as trans to john would be accidental. i bet john would end up seeing needles and immediately go balistic, coming to sherlock and telling him how much he cares about him and how he shouldn’t be near “this stuff”, and sherlock gives him a wild look of disbelief before asking him if he even read the labels. when john reads them he looks completely embarrassed and apologizes. but then, after curiosity nagged him for a small while he asked sherlock why he was taking testosterone injections. sherlock doesnt answer, but texts his mother to get some childhood photos to show john. without saying a word, he nods his understanding. theres an awkward silence and sherlock becomes worried for a moment before john looks at him with a smile and says “christ do i still feel stupid about earlier. so anyway what do you want for dinner?” because nothing has changed, except now they know each other a little bit better, and john wants sherlock to know that

Thoughts on Batgirl(Rebirth)(as of #12)

-Wow that first arc was really bad

-Second arc is pretty good so far

-As much as I love Rafael Albuquerque, Chris Wildgoose’s style is a better fit for the series

-Hope Larson seems to divide the issues up too much? Don’t know how else to phrase that. Basically, in Beyond Burnside, each issue was a new country. In Son of the Penguin, each issue is a new app

-I don’t know, it seems to break up the pacing a bit. Son of the Penguin isn’t as bad with the apps as Beyond Burnside was with having each issue focus on a country, so hopefully Larson will just get better with this as time goes on

-Babs “turning off” her eidetic memory is still really stupid

-But if we are going ahead with Babs being able to switch between eidetic memory and “hyperfocus”, can it not be written as a deus ex machina super-power?

-Obviously I can’t tell where Larson is eventually going with this, but from #12 it seems like hyperfocus will basically become a superpower Babs will be able to use for short bursts

-Which to me basically reads as it being an artificial way to increase drama and have a big turn around moment in a fight that Babs is losing

-Plus, her turning off her eidetic memory to “focus better” is just stupid.

-Okay so I’m glad Frankie, Alysia, and the rest are back, but, aren’t we forgetting someone? *cough*Qadir*cough*

-*cough*and Nadimah*cough*

-But no seriously where are they

-I appreciate Son of the Penguin trying to be about something, but it can be a little too on the nose and heavy handed (seriously just sometimes Babs overhears some Burnside elitists being dicks and that’s the main source of this arc’s theme about social elitism hurting neighborhoods)

-Which isn’t that bad but it’s worse when what Larson seems to be mocking/satirizing is just… kind of off the mark

-Like in this issue, with the dog app thing, and the little kid is enjoying it and then Babs has to randomly inform her about how it’s probably a scheme for data-mining?

-Just… chill

-But overall, I think it works even if it doesn’t quite hit the bull’s eye and is a little too on the nose

-I.. actually like Ethan Cobblepot as a possible villain and the dynamic between him and Babs? Honestly, wasn’t expecting that

-So if we can’t have the gang back together(Luke, Dinah, Harper, Steph), then can we please have more of Dick as a supporting character in the book?

-While Kai and the other supporting characters and villains from Beyond Burnside just… 100% did not work, I like Ethan as a possible villain/supporting character, and I like Daniel and that really smart little girl whose name I’ve forgotten(hope they get more focus in future, but this is a secondary hope to Qadir and Nadimah being re-introduced)

-Also I like all of the relationship drama between the different characters especially the focus on Alyisia and Jo

-Why is Frankie not Operator?

Final Thoughts: I really did not like Beyond Burnside and was super bummed that it was basically at the bottom of the Rebirth titles I was reading, but things are looking up now. Batgirl still isn’t quite near the top, but it’s definitely getting better. Aside from a few problems(both plot-wise and with Larson’s writing in general, which I hope will smooth out over time), it’s really good.

anonymous asked:

Is Katherine dead `;/

They killed her again. She is supposed to be gone for good but I don’t think she’s dead. It’s Katherine Pierce she’s a survivor, She would’ve anticipated their plan and had a plan b, then a plan c and d. Katherine would’ve found away to survive there is no question about it. The writers may have been too stupid to write her a decent ending but this is the way I see it. I genuinely believe Katherine, the woman who survived running from Klaus for five hundred years, the woman who always has a plan to survive, the woman who had the actual devil wrapped around her finger would’ve found a way to survive them destroying hell. To me she is alive there is no question about it. 

(Honestly I would’ve written her a great ending and some great scenes for her return(I still enjoyed her scenes but they were a bit off). My finale headcanons are better than most of the actual finale so I’m sticking with my version of things)

This one came out a bit better. I didn’t know if I’d continue recording because it was being stupid so I had done more work on his skull etc. XD Still don’t know if I’m finished with his face. Needs more lighting…

About an hour’s worth of footage at 600x speed

Ed, just confirmed the song "Galway Girl" for the 3 single, and i love the choice, but i wish i could have see the face of the people from the record Label, when the song had made sucess, really because they wanted to cut - off this song of the álbum and now they watch the sucess of the song, what do you think about that? Label Records always makes stupid decisions!

Haha, well, I wouldn’t say record labels always make stupid decisions, but it does sort of make me grin smugly whenever Ed does something a bit radical and it turns out to work better than they thought. Not gonna lie, I love that. 

But honestly, even when the label is wrong, Ed’s good decisions still work in their favor since they make money off whatever he does, so their faces would probably just be happy regardless. :) 

Send me📝 and my muse will reveal their thoughts about your muse. ]

  • Their first impression: They didn’t exactly have the friendliest first meeting you can posily imagine. Ivar didn’t really like her one bit despite her nice ass. She’s too much of a bitch.
  • Their current impression: She’s still a bitch and he doesn’t exactly get why he still sticks around her. Maybe it’s some stupid fear of ending up alone again. Having someone always sounds better than having no one, no matter how much of an arse they can be. 
  • What they like the most about your muse: The looks, by far.
  • What they dislike the most about your muse: That bitch-ass attitude.
  • What your muse is for them ( Friend, lover, rival ecc.): Not entirely sure, maybe a name on his “Students I wouldn’t mind taking to my bed”-list (which is…basically empty)
  • A general opinion of their relationship: It’s better than nothing, since the people at his dorm all have their own lives to lead just like him…
  • If applicable, something they wish to reveal: How did she become the College Whore and is she really as much fun as the guys claim her to be?

Achilles scoops up his shoes from the edge of the beach. “How long have you been standing there?”

He knows. His mother, the woman of the sea, told him. Achilles turned his attention to the intruder in question and then back, and his mother was gone. Right when it was getting good, he thinks, another bitter argument still fleeting in his throat. They will need a better spot for conversation. These half-wit early morning spots before the crowds arrive are stupid and a waste of his time. He gives the girl a once-over, obviously trying to mask his intentions, and wiping the bits of stone from his bare feet. He’s tired, still fuming with mortal defeat beside the goddess. He isn’t in the mood.

@greasefeather liked for a thing!

svt reacting to you finding out that you’re not their ideal type

s.coups: would probably feel kinda guilty over how you’re feeling, maybe blame himself for saying something that stupid in the first place. would try to tell you that his ideal type doesn’t mean that he still doesn’t love you

jeonghan: would feel a bit surprised that you would feel this way because he saw you as a really strong person that didn’t really let things like this get you down. to make you feel better he’d probably shower you with affection and say that his ideals type has changed, and now it’s you

joshua: he’d be really sad and also probably guilty because he never intended to make you feel this way!! he’d definitely pull you into a tight hug and start telling you about all things he finds are wonderful about you ~~~

jun: being the dick he is he’d probably say something like “I can’t just limit myself to one type good things need to be shared, don’t they” but then for a moment he’d just drop the facade and be serious and look into your eyes (probably would kiss you and tell you you’re beautiful anyway and it doesn’t matter to him)

hoshi: hoshi would probably be really pouty and look at you with a really sulky face. he’d probably whine a bit before confessing he was lying for the sake of the interview because he can’t decide on an ideal type. would try his best to make you feel better with silly jokes and funny faces

wonwoo: would smile that lazy smile of his and ruffle your hair fondly. “Don’t feel bad about yourself okay? That type thing doesn’t matter to me. Only you do.”

woozi: woozi would be like “what are you serious when did i ever say i had an ideal type what” and he’d just try to deny it. even though he doesn’t really seem to care on the outside, he’d probably be really harsh on himself for making you feel like that

mingyu: he’d get really shocked like !!! What are you serious? Maybe he’d sulk a little but would become really clingy and follow you everywhere announcing that “my ideal type is y/n and no one else”

dk: would probably shed a few tears. would probably deny everything about what he said earlier, and would also try to convince you that ideal types didn’t really matter to him. but once he sees you smile again, the sunshine boy we all know and love would be back to his normal self again

the8: he’d pretend not to notice but ACTUALLY WOULD WRITE YOU A LONG SAPPY LETTER professing his love for u and maybe made you something/ got you flowers. the whole nine yards. or should i say eight yards.

seungkwan: he’d be super dramatic about it like WHAT? NO ? WHAT IS MY IDEAL TYPE? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? maybe say something sappy like “now that my eyes are opened, i see that you’re my ideal type” but in the end he’d just. kinda feel bad about it if he hurt you and hug u

vernon: this boy and his fragile heart would probably shatter with guilt let’s be honest… he’d probably get really down and try to tell you that you’re his ideal type now, and try to make you feel better by showering you with affection (well try to)  

dino: dino… poor child doesnt understand.. he wouldn’t really get why you took it so seriously because he’d just made something up at the time. would tell you that he didn’t mean it and that you’re the only one for him.
