Good Intentions (Joseph/Stiles)

Anonymous said: Papa Hale/Stiles - “You’ve been pouting ever since I went out on that date, what’s up?”

Hope you enjoy this, nonnie! Fic #27 in my 2017 Prompt Challenge

 Good Intentions. Joseph (Papa) Hale/Stiles. Teen. Also on AO3.

Stiles is trying to be mature by avoiding the problem, but Joseph insists on talking about what’s been bothering Stiles lately.

“You’ve been pouting ever since I went out on that date, what’s up?”

 “Are you really doing this?” Stiles looks up from the menu and stares at the man across the table from him.

“I’m not entirely sure what you mean by ‘this’ because I’m getting the feeling it doesn’t mean communicating with a good friend of mine regarding their recent behavioral change,” Joseph says thoughtfully. He leans back against the booth and gives Stiles a curious look. “What’s wrong, brat?”

It was a throwaway line in the episode, but very important: Mon-El says of the prince, very quietly “he wasn’t worth admiring, but I-I want to be.”

That’s what’s behind Mon-El’s sudden “I want to be a superhero.”

Look. He’s the only survivor, as far as we know, of the destruction of Daxam. He wasn’t sent to Earth with a life’s purpose, like Kara. (Who, incidentally, took a while to grow into and cultivate her real one.)

He’s never worked a day in his life before Earth (captain of the royal guard, my eye).

When he says it’s luck that he lived, he means it. In the Pratchett veiw of “worth,” he has none. He’s never had or made any value besides being royalty, never left the world better than he found it, never had a job other than “don’t die.” He’s amusing, but not admirable, as Kara reminds him constantly.

He decides he wants to change that. And Kara’s way, Kara who looks like she knows what she’s doing, it is.

hiii! I’m amber and I’m from the UK - I’m looking for a pen pal to exchange cute little trinkets with and there’s something awfully romantic about sending a proper letter! I really love art and drawing and literature; I’m quite an aesthetic fiend as well. I love a lot of indie music, but I’m also a one direction fan (haha). I’d love to travel some day, so talking to people from different countries would really brighten up my weeks!

Interests: poetry, books (anything from YA to Fitzgerald), Netflix, gossip girl, art and drawing, photography

I’ve been poking around at Brigid’s door lately, trying to reconcile myself with stepping away from Frigg to talk to a different hearth goddess. It feels rude to me, but I suspect that’s my Baptist background talking.

I’ve also been trying to tease apart the differences between Them, so that it doesn’t feel like I’m just transferring all my associations from one to the other.

The key difference I’ve highlighted so far is the aspect of Queenship in Frigg. She is the queen of Asgard, Her husband is the Allfather. She rules the hearth and home, but she also rules. There will always be a slight hint of distance in Her embrace, because She must be queen to Her people as well as mother to Her children. Along with those responsibilities come Her aspects as Knower of Fate and Weaver of Wyrd. She has a bird’s-eye view of humanity that makes itself felt.

From what I’ve learned of Brigid so far, She has none of that distance. She was a queen, but Her husband was not meant to be king. She is much more down in the dirt, elbows deep in the workings of the home. She’s the One you find elbow deep in a cow, trying to solve a breech birth. She’s the One you find sweaty and covered in forge-dust, hair wild and half out of its braid.

I guess I would say I feel Brigid more actively in the world and in the activities I love, whereas I feel Frigg in the concepts and power I want to embody. Brigid is what I want to do, Frigg is Who I want to be.

With how you talked about different preferred forms of writing, I am a video game designer, with a focus on narrative design. I write my stories in a simplified manner focusing on allowing people to understand characters and what is going on. Writing isnt just about flowery words. You have to understand your audience and know what they expect as well as write how you prefer. Although comparing authors can be good for understanding this, whoever sent the anon message let me say you are an ass.

Yes. My favourite thing is when haters show how ignorant they are~

Like, if the topic of discussion was, “How do these two writers differ?” or “what strengths to both of these approaches have?”, “who do you think the target audience for these different approaches is?” and “when would these different approaches be best used?” like, those would be appropriate topics for comparison?

The whole “THAT GUY IS BETTER!!!” stinks of someone who hasn’t yet grasped the notion that personal opinion is not the same as fact. 

(also COOOOOLLLL re: narrative design for video games!!!! That industry scares the hell out of me XD)

while reading some of the ask and the response you gave a thought came to me and i wonder if darkness is about Yona, Hak, and King II. So far only the generals and the soldiers know the truth about Yona and Hak. No one else knows so everyone else is in darkness. The generals and the soldiers can make conclusions about what happened to King II after seeing Yona and Hak alive. But how will everyone else react when they find out the truth? ( cont about wind tribe )

and i we know handae, taewoo, and mundok all know the truth but did they tell everyone what really went down. The wind tribe are all very close with one another. No class difference and i wonder if mundok told them what happened even tho no one believes it. I also ponder if the citizens from different tribes talk with one another. Like someone in the wind tribe talks with someone in the earth tribe or if its forbidden.


If the darkness turns out to be the discovery of the truth behind King Il’s death “befalling” on the citizens of Kouka, your theory could be really cool. I’m personally more inclined to believe that the darkness is some sort of war, but seeing as the Xing arc is playing out exactly how I envisioned the darkness would fall yet I don’t think it’s the last arc of the manga, I’m thinking an even more metaphorical darkness is even better.

Because after all, if the truth divides the kingdom into people who favour Su-Won and those who distrust him, then wouldn’t that be absolute chaos? Wouldn’t someone have to step in to restore balance? Wouldn’t that be the perfect moment for “The Red Dragon” to return?

About the Wind Tribe: it’s likely that most of the Wind Tribe knows the truth to some extent, especially those closer to the top, but Hak asked them to stay quiet and Su-Won has already threatened them. They’re keeping quiet because doing the oposite right now would be unwise.

Women are always expected to be naked. I like to try and be naked in films, and have the woman not be naked. It’s a feminist thing that I do.

Sebastian’s song?

Okay, so I’m gonna be absolutely honest and say I haven’t been paying a whole lot of attention to the most recent Kuro chapters but in this month’s one, there was something that caught my attention…

We know how both Ciel and Sebastian are producing the Phantom 5, right?

Well, I was reading

and ok, Edward introduces the song they’ll be performing (nothing new or relevant honestly), and even tho in the title says Knight, I thought it could mean anything really… So, I kept reading

until I got to this part

“No, you’re the prey for me” 

and that’s precisely where I thought: 

wait, that sounds like something a certain demon butler would say .. and well, from there on

it started to become

more and more evident

who was the one in charge of this lyrics 

and who they are about

This is just a conjecture I made from the official translation, but wouldn’t it be interesting?

A song written by a demon about this fragile but proud human?

And also, could the first verses count as a summary of Sebastian’s life before Ciel from his own point of view?

Anyway, just wanted to share what I thought with you guys x)

Real talk…as an American I’m actually scared to wake up in the morning to see that somehow, as if some cruel joke on us all, Donald Trump has become president of the United States of America.

Never before in an election have I been worried about the other candidate winning. Sure, in those previous years, it would have sucked for a little bit to have to deal with a republican presidency but never before did it mean that the safety and well-being of millions of people would be put at stake.

Whatever your ethnicity, your gender, your religion, or your sexual orientation, we as a people need to stand strong because our decision today doesn’t just change our world.

It changes the whole world.

Don’t hide your voice. Be strong. Stand up for what you believe.

Vote.

What if …

- Cinder was raised by Levana instead of being almost killed by her?

- Scarlet grew up on Luna rather than on Earth with her grandmother?

- Cress hadn’t been born a shell but inherited the gift from her parents?

- Winter never promised herself to not use her glamour but to serve her queen?

May I present:
