that he'll be thinking of her

Just imagine Sherlock ambushing Molly for a cuddle because his mind is racing so much and he can’t take it. Cuddling with Molly, burying his head in that space between her shoulder and neck, enveloping his arms around her waist, tangling his legs with hers, blocking the world by sinking in her comfortable embrace - he had discovered that this is how he could let his mind calm down.

Imagine Molly running her hands in his curls, soothing away tangles, knots, confusion and pain.

Speed paint for the night. I decided to jump start the color pallet with green, which is a color I don’t usually use as a motif. I usually work pallets around blue, purple, or red.

I haven’t drawn Shera in her lab coat in a loooonnggg while. As a last thought, I bet they work pretty well together. Very hands on folks…

Things The Signs Have Said That Break My Heart
  • Aries: Was I ever anything more than a sad kid? I thought the drugs would help, but they just make you sadder and a little deader. I really tried my best, but I don't think there's much use anymore. Nobody cared then, and nobody cares now.
  • Taurus: I'm sorry, but I fell in love with you. I watch you move and I'm captivated. The world slows down just a little bit when I look at you. I wanna kiss your long neck, and run my fingers through your curly hair. I wanna listen to you talk for hours about old movies and bad music. I wanna hear every word that you have to say. But I can't, because you're in love with someone else
  • Gemini: I dreamed so much as a little kid. All those dreams are dead know. The world has a lot of fun killing little girls dreams.
  • Cancer: Please don't go! Stay! Stay! I need you to stay! No one ever stays.
  • Leo: I used to be special. Everyone thought I was going to be this amazing person. They thought I would do great things, but look at me. I'm nothing. If I was anything, it would be a failure.
  • Virgo: She just left. She didn't say anything. In one simple second, all the love and laughter that we had, was ripped from both of us. She just decided she did't feel like loving me anymore.
  • Libra: It's all gone. Any hope that I had is gone.
  • Scorpio: Do you think that if I get prettier, he might look at me like he used to? Maybe he'll love me again.
  • Sagittarius: The whole world is at my fingertips, they say, but I can't seem to ever grab it.
  • Capricorn: I could tell she didn't love me anymore. She would smile, but in her eyes I could see the pity and slight disgust she had for me. I tried to stop loving her, but I couldn't. I felt pathetic, like I was stood up. But this time I couldn't just go home and forget about it the next day. She was, and still is, my everything.
  • Aquarius: I don't want to feel this anymore. I don't want to be trapped in my mind. I want to live again. I just want to see the light one more time.
  • Pisces: Could you just tell me you love me? You don't have to mean it. I just want, for a second, to feel loved.
Dad in denial
  • dad: what if clara never goes back to trap street?
  • me: she has to go back. doesn't matter when but eventually she has to.
  • dad: but the doctor could land his tardis before she dies and save her.
  • me: no, he can't. if he does he'll destroy his reason for ever going back and it becomes a paradox.
  • dad: yes, but what if she just doesn't go back?
  • me: but she already did.
  • dad: what? when? last thing we saw was her in the diner flying off.
  • me: no, last thing we saw of her was her dying on trap street long before the other stuff happened. she already went back and died.
  • dad: . . .
  • me: welcome to the logic of doctor who.
  • Magnus: Have you ever played the five-year test?
  • Alec: What? No, I don't think so. It's not that sex game, is it?
  • Magnus, after brief laughter: Jace. Where do you think he'll be in five years' time?
  • Alec: Easy. Killing demons here in New York, praised at every turn for being the best Shadowhunter of his age.
  • Magnus: Clary?
  • Alec: Making a fortune by selling brilliant paintings of the Shadow World to Shadowhunters, Downworlders, and mundanes alike.
  • Magnus: Isabelle?
  • Alec: Walking all over the world in eight-inch heels. Slicing apart catcalling men with her whip.
  • Magnus: Now, you. Where do you see yourself in five years?
  • Alec: ...
  • Magnus: You haven't thought about it, have you?

anonymous asked:

I work in a small restaurant. Besides myself, the only other server is a trans girl (P) who is always nice and gives good service. Last week we had a lady come in for dinner As soon as P went to hand them menus and water this woman starts screaming 'oh god, it's a tr*nny! How dare this MAN think he can just come over here!' Etc. P just started to cry and I brought her out back while the cook told this woman to leave or he'll call the cops. It took forever to calm P down but she was so brave

2. “I take you to the best pizza place in town, and you want to eat the ants in the parking lot?”

3. Look, I get it. You aren’t from here. But please don’t lick people’s faces.”

Not going to lie, I had a ton of fun with this one. :) I hope these help!

quartz stimming headcanons
  • jasper: jasper really only stims when she's worked up or has to be still, thats when she turns into a stimming machine. she'll stomp her feet, shake the table/surface she's standing at, she growls, she pulls her hair or runs her fingers through it rapidly, sometimes she'll repeatedly slam her fists on the table, she'll yell and throw massive tantrums, she'll break anything she can get her hands on, she'll swear loudly or under her breath, she paces like a caged animal, she'll grind or gnash her teeth, bites her knuckles or hands, she'll scrunch her face up and make exaggerated expressions, scratches her arms sometimes. her stimming is violent and angry.
  • steven: steven is very rhythmic and musical much like his parents. he'll tap his foot to an imaginary beat, he'll hum or sing whatever tunes that's currently stuck in his head, he'll tap pens and pencils like drum sticks to songs he knows or is coming up with, he'll play imaginary instruments in the air like piano keys or strings of a guitar either acting out a song or simply for the sensation, he'll rock back on his heels, he'll skip and dance and jump whenever he's walking, he likes to twirl, he hugs himself alot, he also loves to clap. he's very sound based when it comes to his stims, mostly he just sings.
  • amethyst: amethyst is very taste oriented and does alot of stuff with her mouth. she chews on alot of stuff whether it be her sleeves, nails, random objects, basically anything and often without even thinking about it, she likes to make weird noises like blowing raspberries or fart noises basically any weird sound you can make with your mouth, she'll put anything and everything she can into her mouth and will eat if she can, she also shapeshifts her hands and parts of her body, she hand flaps alot, she'll also bang on tables and stomp her feet like jasper but not so violently, she'll twirl her hair and play with and will shake her head so it whips around and slaps her face, she also chews on her hair, she also rips things up and destroys it even when not thinking about. she's constantly doing different stims and is never really that consistent besides chewing on everything.

Day6 As Shit My Friends Have Said
  • Jae: "Oh my god don't take diet advice from her, she thinks the food pyramid is a pizza slice."
  • Sungjin: "Tell Big Daddy your problems. He doesn't care but he'll listen."
  • Brian: "I'm actually super fucking talented okay I can play professional musical triangle."
  • Wonpil: "Do you think Key would be my sugar daddy if I asked nicely?"
  • Dowoon: "I hate everything. Except chicken. And cheese. And strawberries. I hate most things that are not food."
  • BobTheDoctor27: *something about poor Kopeke having to write a eulogy for Matoro*
  • BionicleChicken: Hey since everyone played Kohlii, what if the Turaga changed the rules to fit their needs.
  • BobTheDoctor27: I feel as though most of the other Turaga stayed out of this conversation, caring little in the way of sports. Especially Nuju and Whenua
  • They just let Po-Koro and Ta-Koro squabble about while secretly betting on the Ga-Koro underdogs to shame them both
  • BionicleChicken: Teridax must be piss-over-heads confused as to how these are the same guys that defeated him 1000 years ago
  • BobTheDoctor27: I feel as though Takanuva got very confused when Teridax challenged him to such a warped version of Kolhii
  • Teridax - "FOUL!"
  • Takanuva - "It WAS NOT!"
  • BionicleChicken: Man what if Teridax was secretly a fan of the Mata Nui Kohlii matches and that's what he watched when he took breaks from his complex planning
  • Picture Makuta sitting on a lazyboy in front of a bonkle-style telepathic TV or something with a beer in hand
  • BobTheDoctor27: Yaaaas
  • Ahkmou - "Lord Makuta, are you sure this is what you want me to do?"
  • Teridax - "Yes."
  • Ahkmou - "Well, okay, I just don't feel we should use our secret partnership to get Hewkii's autograph."
  • BionicleChicken: Teridax - "Hewkii's signature is integral to bringing down the Great Spirit and all that he stands for"
  • BobTheDoctor27: This adds a whole new dimension to Teridax's Infected Kolhii balls
  • BionicleChicken: Teridax - (also could you trip that skank Macku up she doesn't deserve him)
  • BobTheDoctor27: He was actually furious at Ahkmou for getting Hewkii sick
  • Teridax - "YOU FOOL! I have money riding on him this season!"
  • BionicleChicken: And thus
  • This conversation has made me imagine Teridax running a Hewkii fan tumblr
  • BobTheDoctor27: With no pictures of Macku
  • BionicleChicken: She's cropped out
  • BobTheDoctor27: her plushie doll censored in his room
  • And, in the few pictures that do exist of them together, Teridax has pasted his own Kanohi Kraahkan over her
  • BionicleChicken: While talking with Matoro in the Pit:
  • "What's Hewkii like. You think he'll like me"
  • BobTheDoctor27: "Are he and Macku still together? Has he finally left that BITCH behind?"
  • "Oooh, she'll be the first to feel my fury once I take over the universe."
  • "Maybe then he'll notice me."
  • BionicleChicken: "How dare she break the heart of my poor Hewk-hewk"
  • BobTheDoctor27: "He is the Hew-key to my heart and I am unlocked."
  • BionicleChicken: Just before Aqua Magna/Bota Magna smashes him:
  • "I'll find you in the next life, Hewkii..."
  • And now I picture the Kraakhan over Glenn Rhee's smashed pop-eyed head talking to Hewkii-faced Maggie
The Three List | Barry & Iris | Script Fic
  • Barry: Hey, Iris?
  • Iris: Yeah, hun?
  • Barry: Do you remember when you were with Eddie & you told me about your 3's list?
  • Iris: My 3's list?
  • Barry: Yeah, you know, three guys you could cheat on Eddie with.
  • Iris: *snorts* oh, right. My 3 list.
  • Barry: You don't still HAVE that, do you?
  • Iris: *blinks* What?
  • Barry: Your 3 list. Do you still have it?
  • Iris: Uh...probably somewhere. Why?
  • Barry: *clears throat* I was just wondering if Oliver was still on it.
  • Iris: *smirks & crawls over to him* Babe, you know that's not a serious thing, right?
  • Barry: what do you mean?
  • Iris: *laughs* even if Oliver had given my fangirl self the time of day when I was with Eddie, I wouldn't have slept with him.
  • Barry: *blinks* you wouldn't have?
  • Iris: *laughs* Who do you think I am, Bear? You think 'he's on my three list!' would've sufficed if Eddie had caught us in bed together?
  • Barry: *blushes fiercely* No, I guess not.
  • Iris: *cups face* Babe, you've got nothing to worry about. *kisses him* You're the only one I want.
  • Barry: *after many kisses & sweet nothings whispered* But is Oliver still--
  • Iris: *rolls eyes & gets off him* oh, for crying out loud.
  • Barry: Wait, Iris, I didn't mean-
  • Iris: You most certainly did. *starts to walk away*
  • Barry: *panics* Iris-
  • Iris: Calm down. I'll be right back. *dashes up the stairs & comes back 10 minutes later* Found it!
  • Barry: *shifts towards her, eyes wide* What did you... *spots piece of paper she's holding* Oh.
  • Iris: *hands paper over* Take a look for yourself.
  • Barry: *scans list of names & frowns* He's still on it.
  • Iris: Mhmm.
  • Barry: This doesn't make me feel any better, Iris.
  • Iris: *crosses arms* that's the original list. I only updated it once, a couple months after I'd moved in with Eddie.
  • Barry: *still frowning* where's that one?
  • Iris: *makes circling motion with her finger*
  • Barry: *checks the other side* This one looks pretty much the same. I don't see-- *jaw drops*
  • Iris: *starts to grin* See something you like, hun?
  • Barry: Am...Am I...? *squeaks*
  • Iris: *nods* Mhmm.
  • Barry: I'm in the number 2 spot!
  • Iris: That's one above Oliver, I believe.
  • Barry: *still gawking* I don't understand.
  • Iris: *comes & sits next to him on the couch* After you told me how you felt when I was with Eddie, I had a lot of feelings that I didn't know how to deal with. Then when Eddie got all secretive on me I started thinking about you even more, and how my best friend would NEVER keep secrets from me the way my boyfriend was doing.
  • Barry: *winces* sarcasm is warranted.
  • Iris: in the past. *waves it off*
  • Barry: *swallows hard & nods*
  • Iris: That night when I came back to my dad's & you were there reassuring me, I felt like that was a safe place to put them. My feelings for you.
  • Barry: On your 3 list?
  • Iris: *nods* On my 3 list.
  • Barry: Did Eddie ever see it?
  • Iris: *laughs* Are you kidding? If Eddie had seen the updated version, he would've figured out what was up right away, even before I did.
  • Barry: And what was up?
  • Iris: *smiles & gently kisses him* I was in love with my best friend.
  • Barry: *has warm fuzzies* Iris...
  • Iris: So, you can keep that if you like. Oliver's name is still on it - BENEATH yours though. I don't have a need for it anymore. I haven't looked at it until today in over two years.
  • Barry: Yeah?
  • Iris: *nuzzles & kisses* yeah. You're all I want, Bear. If I can't have you, there's no one else I want. Not even a one night stand with a celebrity.
  • Barry: *smiles*
  • Iris: Do YOU have a 3 list? *raises eyebrows*
  • Barry: WHAT? *squeaks*
  • Iris: You heard me.
  • Barry: Iris.
  • Iris: BARRY.
  • Barry: *sighs & then laughs* I have a 1 list.
  • Iris: *eyebrow furrow* What's a 1 list?
  • Barry: *pulls out wallet & digs out tiny scrap of paper inside & hands it to her* Same thing as a 3 list. Except mine only has 1 name on it.
  • Iris: *jaw drops when she reads it* I'M the only name on your 3 list??
  • Barry: *grins & pulls her close* Yep.
  • Iris: But of all he gorgeous celebrities, even SCIENCE NERDS, you only chose--
  • Barry: You're the only one I've wanted since the day that I met you.
  • Iris: *teary-eyed* Barry...
  • Barry: Getting a chance with you? 10 times better than any hook up with ANY celebrity.
  • Iris: *sighs contently & kisses him* I love you, Barry Allen.
  • Barry: I love you, Iris West.
  • Iris: *nuzzles & pulls away after a while* So what are you going to do with my 3 list?
  • Barry: Give it back to you. *hands it over* You decide what to do with it.
  • Iris: *grins* Mmk. *pecks him in the cheek, stands up & heads to the roaring fireplace*
  • Barry: Wait, Iris, what are you doing?! *speeds over*
  • Iris: Getting rid of it. I don't need it anymore.
  • Barry: Well, maybe you should keep it. You know, as a keepsake.
  • Iris: *eyes him suspiciously* Why do you want it?
  • Barry: *I* don't want it. It's yours. I gave it back to you. So you--
  • Iris: BARRY.
  • Barry: *swallows* I mean, you ranked me ABOVE Oliver, so...
  • Iris: OHMYGOD. *rolls eyes & shoves it into his hand* You keep it. It'll be YOUR keepsake. *walks back to the couch & sits down*
  • Barry: It's not really MINE, so--
  • Iris: *gives him THE LOOK* one more word, Barry, and I WILL throw it to the flames. Not even your superspeed will stop me.
  • Barry: *nods & swallows* Right. *tucks paper into pocket & comes to sit next to her* So...
  • Iris: *raises eyebrow*
  • Barry: Now what?
  • Iris: *irritation fades away & she pulls him close, kissing him* Now I get some one-on-one time with #2 on my 3 list.
  • Barry: *pulls back after a few kisses* I thought you just said--
  • Iris: I swear to God, Barry, if you don't just kiss me--
  • Barry: *speeds them up their bedroom, drops her on the bed & takes off t-shirt, then hovers over her & kisses her, lingering*
  • Iris: *moans* Don't tell my boyfriend about this. He'll be extremely jealous.
  • Barry: *restrains groan* On my life. *mutters & kisses her again*
  • ...
  • A/N: Just did (as of 4/2/17) a bit of an edit, b/c I watched the 1.08 scene & realized it's actually called a 'three' list, not a 'threes' list. So I changed all those & added a short line to something Iris said early on.

Touka is so lucky to have Yomo. He’s such a good uncle, so nice and supportive, never left her, he took care of her and helped her with the shop, he’s so faithful to her, and even tho he’s older and wiser, it’s like she’s the one in charge and he would follow her anywhere no matter what, they’re like a duo? I can’t think of Touka without Yomo nor Yomo without Touka, they come as a set. Both went to save Tsukiyama together, both went to help Hinami together, besides of being his niece and literally the living image of his sister, I feel like Touka is like a daughter to him. I love their relationship so much 😭

The signs as things I've heard people say at school
  • Aries: hey if I died right now do you think I'd still have to do my exams in hell
  • Taurus: why? Was I not supposed to use hydrochloric acid? Oh... Then I have a confession make
  • Gemini: chemistry can kiss my fat ass
  • Cancer: I'm gonna die a virgin who can't drive, can't swim and can't apply the cosine rule
  • Leo: yeah so I said who cares? I'm like really over you, you can suck 10 dicks. But then he said good I'm gay anyways. How did I not see that coming? (Cries)
  • Virgo: (everyone was talking about chicken fillets and asked her if she used one) no I'm a vegetarian you idiot
  • Libra: (when asked what we should do to avoid having this test) maybe if we stay still he won't notice us and he'll think that nobody's here
  • Scorpio: I think murder in a science lab should be legal if you end up with a moronic partner
  • Sagittarius: Look all I know is I was blazing it and then it started blazing me and I had to take the bus home with my shirt half burned off. It looked cool though
  • Capricorn: if I finish all these biology notes in my next free period I think I'll have time to go home and watch every single Star Wars movie
  • Aquarius: it's a fucking conspiracy. How can every single science teacher that ever taught me since year 7 just leave school like that... Something's up
  • Pisces: (why weren't you paying attention)I was thinking about how Drake would say xylem
if this isn't love, then what is?
  • stefan salvatore:
  • she's the love of my life, i'd go back to her in a heart beat.
  • if it were my choice, i'd want to be with you forever
  • if it meant i got to be with her, have children, grow old with her.. if it meant we'd die together, be buried together then yes. i would take the cure
  • i would never hurt you, you're safe with me
  • when you and i were together every single atom in my body told me that it was the right thing. that we were the perfect fit.
  • actually i don't pretend to be anything when i'm with her. that's the whole point. i just get to be myself.
  • but you know, the life that we had, it was amazing too. and it wasn't a spell or a prophecy, it was real. we fell in love on our own.
  • you know, this is a future memory. it's where your boyfriend whispered to you that he loved you. i love you.

  • every time that i tell myself that i'm moving on, there's this part of me that just can't seem to shake her.

  • i love you. i will always love you.
  • i love you so much.
  • i'm simply not able to resist her.
  • elena is warm and she's kind and she's selfless and it's real. when i'm around her i completely forget what i am.
  • elena gilbert:
  • i love him damon. no matter what i feel for you i never unfell for him.

  • other tvd characters:
  • katherine: you'd never look at me the way you look at elena, would you?
  • klaus: now this is fascinating i've never seen this before. the only thing stronger than your craving for blood is your love for this one girl.
  • klaus: and that's why you're her better option. i personally think she's wasting her time with damon.
  • rebekah: i envy that. you and elena. i envy the love you have.

anonymous asked:

with bb theirs no well known trope so it's "forced". They put w/b cause the racist meets someone from the race who targeted her family which is why they don't get why it wasn't her or think she'll meet him after a sl which will force them into a rs & he'll get mad at their love. R/b cause she gained her trust before she was their leader over books, never gave up on b reminded her of younger self. what they don't see is b w/ a human not cause a name, reminder of her past, just cause of who y is

yeah - i mean with the first one it’s just fundamentally ignoring that Blake wants to be seen for who she is, not what, and so whoever she ends up with is likely going to be chosen for who they are, not what - so the importance lies in the shared dynamic, how important they are to each other, not because they fill specific roles and exist in the same breathing space

here’s the thing though, they do actually have a writing thing that applies to them, it’s just because people ignore Yang’s complexity and so ignore its presence - person A is carrying trauma and baggage and person B is their salvation, but under the surface, person B is also carrying trauma and baggage in a less obvious/volatile way, and person A is their salvation right back

Yang and Blake have shared a close, fond dynamic since they paired up in the forest, Yang understands Blake on a level no other character is shown to and since volume 2 there have been repeated showings of just how important they are to each other - Yang being the one to persist in trying to help Blake, 2x06. Blake trusting Yang’s advice and going to the dance, 2x06. Yang breaking down in tears when she thinks Blake doesn’t believe her, 3x07. Everything involving them in 3x11 and 3x12. Blake talking about how she loves her team more than she ever thought she could anybody, with a significant hesitation on Yang, 4x10. and the opening verses of Armed and Ready.

hell, given how every Yang song (I Burn, Gold and Armed and Ready) has references to soaring and flight, Wings, which also references helping someone fly similarly to how Gold does, comes off as a song about Blake from Yang’s perspective (it’s far more empathic and understanding than Weiss was capable of, the reference to ‘twelve hours’ being the only Weiss connected line and Yang was with Weiss for that twelve hours. even the lines about knowing what it’s like to be stray kinda make sense with Yang’s backstory, where she essentially had to learn to look after herself to take care of Ruby because it’s not like Tai was any help. Yang was also the one most visibly concerned about Blake during that episode)

Yang and Blake’s connection is one of the strongest dynamics in the series because of who they are and their implicit understanding of each other (i mean if we want to look at tropes, Yang and Blake fit a light and dark dynamic in terms of theming. the bright and sunny one pairing up with the quiet moody one and bringing out their goofy side is also a pretty common thing. at a stretch, Tomboy and Girly Girl; Yang’s outfits tend to be more overtly feminine than Blake’s do. there’s a contrast and complement thing going on), so a lot of the denial and writing off of it is just willful blindness, not wanting to acknowledge that the writing is very heavily leaning in that direction

also the Japanese releases have, in their soundtrack booklets, these images

real subtle Japan - like they went through the trouble of editing it to solely focus on Yang and Blake. so if it’s that obvious…
