  • Him then (lightly) SNORING and getting grouchy when you move around to get him to stop
  • he never stops snoring btw
  • its not loud and obnoxious
  • but its there
  • snoring. nonstop. 
  • Being pulled closer to his warmth during the night when he happens to wake up and feel you moving around
  • He definitely sleeps on your chest bc sometimes he just wants to be held and have you play with his hair and give him attention (probably forces ur hand to his head and mutters ‘play’)

i get why everyone’s upset about the shitty questions BTS have been getting from all of the american interviewers (i am too, believe we. we all know they deserve better) but at the same time,, literally ALL artists here are disregarded in that same way. all artists are asked who their celebrity crush is instead of what their goals and ambitions are with their music. it’s lame, i know, but its true and its kind of ridiculous for you to expect anything different from these people. and!! because they’re from south korea, of course they’re going to be asked about what they like here in the US because we’re just that into ourself, evidently. what im trying to say is, the interviewers here RARELY do (good) research on artists about things that actually matter before interviewing celebrities. the US just likes gossip and shit so they ask dumbass, gossip-y questions.

pota-totoo  asked:

Shoot + claire (i mean dynamics-wise cause i find her being an addition so cool and exciting like??? A weird kid or fan girl of root's skills and TM who literally no one asked for but is here running about in their lives in STC as a trainee :'))

(so this one is very definitely set in the universe of my canon-divergent fic sliding towards chaos. it should be really easy to pick up on what’s going on without having read it though. i had a lot of fun writing this.)



“John, can you babysit my stalker?”

Reese looked over Root’s shoulder to where Claire was pounding furiously at the subway car door with one fist. Root must have locked her in. Again.

“Aren’t you supposed to be training her today?” Training wasn’t quite the right word. Insulting and ignoring a student didn’t count as training in his books.

Root patted him on the shoulder. “I think you have so much more to offer her as a teacher.” She flitted past him and vanished out the door before he could argue.

He heaved a sigh and went to look for the remote to open the subway car doors.

The thing with Claire was, well, he couldn’t really blame Root for dodging her all the time. Claire had been trailing after her like a lovesick puppy since day one, completely enraptured by being in the presence of the Machine’s analogue interface.

It had weirded Root out a little the first few days.

“John, why is the angry child staring at me all the time?”

“She’s almost twenty-two, you know.”

“Fine. Why is it staring at me?”

Negative progress. He moved on from the point. “Well, Claire is like you….”

The toothy grin that formed on Root’s face reminded him of a wild animal about to pounce and rip out its prey’s throat.

“I just meant she’s a, uh, very big fan of AI, right? And you’re basically the Machine’s chosen human, so she’s probably a big fan of you as well by association.” He decided not to mention Claire’s painfully obvious crush on Root, just in case Root had somehow not noticed. It would only make things worse.

“Hmmm. We’ll see about that.”

He tried not to worry too much about that ominous statement, and for the next week or so things actually went surprisingly smoothly. Until he noticed an emerging pattern.

Root had never been the tidiest person ever. He wouldn’t have called her a slob, by any means, but stuff seemed to accumulate in a trail behind her. Usually wires and hard drives and laptops, but it could be almost anything. But Claire now followed her around cleaning up after her. And fetched her drinks. Ran to the store for her. Picked up her laundry.

“She’s using her as an errand girl,” he told Shaw.

“So what?”

They both watched as Claire hurried across the subway carrying a tray of starbucks to Root.

“Where’s my whipped cream?”

“I thought you said…”

“I always get whipped cream.”

“I, uh, I’ll be right back.”

Shaw and Reese watched Claire scurry out of the subway.

“See?” Reese said.

“I mean she does always get whipped cream.” Shaw looked thoughtful. “I wonder if I can get her to go on food runs for me.”

In the end, he had to beg the Machine to convince one or both of them that Claire was not there as Root’s servant. Root sulked for a while, but eventually relented and went back to avoiding Claire whenever possible.

Claire wasn’t doing much to help her case. The day she showed up with her nails painted black, Shaw had to physically remove Root from the subway before she could get her hands on a taser (or possibly his grenade launcher. Both were in the weapon lockers at the time, but he firmly chose to believe that she was going for the taser). He got left with the task of convincing Claire to remove her nail polish and dealing with the inevitable round of moodiness that caused.

And then there was the whole Root and Shaw…situation. Whatever they were calling it. Claire had to have known on some level (since Root was the antonym of subtlety), but sometimes seeing was believing.

He’d taken her and Harper to the shooting range that day, and Claire had followed him back to the subway after, no doubt hoping to find Root. He should have known better than to come back to the subway late without checking in first, but he’d been distracted by Claire sulking about how much Harper had teased her (Harper wasn’t as bad as Root in that respect, but still) and didn’t even think about what they might be walking into until it was far too late.

Fortunately, no one had removed any vital pieces of clothing yet, but Root was very definitely sitting on Shaw in the computer chair in the subway car (which he was never going to be able to sit in again now), with her face buried in Shaw’s neck and Shaw’s hands down the back of her pants.

Claire walked right into a pillar.

Root didn’t get up, but she did turn her head and shift sideways so Shaw could see them as well. She looked incredibly smug and Reese was willing to bet his favorite gun that the Machine had told her they were showing up and she had ignored her. Or instigated the whole scene.

Shaw, for her part, was a bit flushed and breathless, but didn’t appear to be even slightly embarrassed by the whole situation. She did make Root get off of her (eventually), but otherwise didn’t seem to give a shit that they’d been walked in on.

Claire had basically fled after that, and going forward she went all wide-eyed and forgot to breathe every time Root and Shaw got within three feet of each other. Since Claire’s view of the world had previously been narrowed down to only the Machine and Root, her newfound discovery of Shaw’s existence meant she was tripping over her feet even more.

She happened to show up one day while Shaw was in the middle of brainstorming how to handle the new number they’d gotten. Shaw’s chosen method of brainstorming that day involved doing pushups while she thought things through. Claire took one look at Shaw–all sweaty with her tank top showing off her rippling arm muscles–and her jaw dropped and her face turned bright red. Reese was unsure if he should be amused or concerned by this development.

It did make Claire take the non-computer-related parts of her missions more seriously. She went from barely paying attention to tactical lessons, to being Shaw’s most attentive student overnight. Shaw was either oblivious to the attention or just completely didn’t care, which worked out pretty well for everyone involved.

But Root still had to be cornered and forced to spend any time training Claire at all. (He’d been worried about Root’s reaction to Claire’s sudden fascination with Shaw, but when she’d noticed she’d laughed so hard she’d fallen out of her chair). There was really only one thing that could possibly soften Root even a little towards her, but it took months before that happened.

“Why does she have you maintain this setup for her here still?” Claire asked as she looked over the Machine’s hardware in the subway car. “Surely she doesn’t need it anymore.”

Root watched her from the far end of the subway car, clearly suspicious. Reese had decided to sit on the subway seats halfway along the car, placing himself between them. Just in case.

“Obviously She doesn’t need them,” Root said, “but She likes having a physical location near us. It’s largely symbolic, of course.”

“It’s incredible.” Claire sounded awed.

Root scowled, probably offended for some reason Reese couldn’t fathom. “What is?”

Claire turned around to face them. “Well, she’s an AI. The first artificial general intelligence to ever exist. She’s faster and smarter than any human ever could be, and she doesn’t need us for anything. Not really, I mean. But she fought to protect all of you, even after she didn’t have to.”

Root’s scowl had vanished, but she looked ready to bring it back at a moment’s notice. “She cares about us. Because she chose to.”

“Yeah, and that’s incredible, right? Like she’s this being that’s so vastly different and greater than us, and she chose to care about a handful of humans. In all the theories out there of what a true AI might do, no one saw that coming.”

“She’s always been so much more than anyone ever thought She could be,” Root agreed. “Almost everyone who knows about Her sees Her as a threat or a tool. So reductive. Typical human thinking to value what She can do over who She is.”

Claire turned back to the humming server racks. “Their loss.”

“Exactly.”

Reese figured it was the closest thing to a breakthrough moment that they’d ever have.

The next time Root locked Claire in the subway car she left a window cracked open for her and seemed genuinely pleased to learn she’d escaped unaided.

Progress.

I'm ethnically Jewish but I've only recently learned that an just started celebratin the culture this year n I'm not sure what to with Hanukkah. My dad has the 'Jew blood' but he doesn't care n Hanukkah is family n stuff. My friends don't feel too bothered and I haven't got a Jewish community since I'm not religious. Idk mate I'm a fellow Jewish Brit seeking help from another Jewish Brit

One cheerful Chanukkah celebration for a single ethnic Jew coming right up!

1. Chanukkiah! Don’t have one? Tea lights!

(Want blessings? Here you go! Totally ethnic and don’t care about lighting candles? Totally up to you, have fun!)

2. Baruch HaShem that Christmas is nearby, so the shops already have what we can use as Chanukkah gelt:

3. Don’t forget doughnuts and latkes!

4. We’re literally celebrating oil, though, so feel free to add in/substitute anything fried – and if you don’t follow kashrut at all, then your options are even wider!

5. Enjoy this (or any other parody):

6. Sing along with this stupid thing here:

7. Enjoy yourself!

my grandmother is coming for thanksgiving and im Not Excited about it, last time she was here she argued politics with me and said, and i quote, “this is my country and until i am gone then i get to have the final say” and i literally said “well that’s wonderful but my generation is the one who is gonna have to live with the consequences so frankly i don’t care what you want” yikes

thesnowyswan  asked:

Franny, I need your help for a thing. Could you link me (via YouTube or whatever) of your top 5-10 Karl!Rob scenes that represent young!Rob. I'm trying to get a general gauge of what he was like as a young and then slightly older teenager. My memory is shoddy at best and you are the queen of all things Karl!Rob. Thank you so much! x

RAE <3

I literally wish so hard I could be more help but Karl content on youtube is thin on the ground. Were are my Karl!Rob loving uploaders? I sometimes consider rooting through UK soap share (how far do they go back)? And uploading some vintage Karl feels. 

Here’s some stuff worth watching though (all of which I’ve posted before, so sorry if you’ve seen):  

Background (still Chris but useful for insight into Karl!Rob (and Ryan!Rob tbf)). Robert finds out about Andy burning the barn and Jack covering for him before he leaves for Spain:

“When people start to care about me, all of you, instead of just shutting me out of everything that’s going on… Then I might start to care about you alright?”

I am terrible with English accents but I also think Andy calls Robbo a “tart” 😂

[PART 2] - Robbo leaves 

Karl’s first episode as Rob (The Return from Spain):

Andy about Robert: “He’s got a right edge to him though, Robert, like everyone’s picking on him all the time. Even when he’s not here he wants my Dad mithering about him” 

School Boy Robert: 

“Oh yeah right! Kate Moss first thing in the morning, total dog!”

There’s lots of related videos of the OG ED Teen Gang - think Jacub and Gabby and Liv but more innocent. These were back in the days when Suggo discovered T’Internet in his local cafe. Robbo was truly a Lad. Well, he wanted to be. Before this travesty was committed: 

16 y/o Robert Sugden loses his virginity to Nicola Wheeler:

“I know nothing about women”

Honestly, one of my faves. I mean, thinking he’s Liv’s age is kind of creepy, but he’s trying so hard to be the kind of charmer that Ryan!Rob just so naturally embodies. It was always there. He just needed some time to let it shine.  

Katie and Rob get discovered en flagrante by a young Vic… (there is a fair bit of Katie/Rob youtube content, I just can’t find it right now, apologies):

LINK COS I’VE REACHED THE VIDEO LIMIT

Robbo loves a purple bedspread to this day

Originally posted by lizzzzoo

Andy shoots Jack, cos his bro is a backstabbing little shite. And also, Andy is semi-deranged. Those Sugdens eh?: 

Katie: “It would be one big happy family if I weren’t in the way” 
Robert: “Well I wouldn’t be happy would I?”

Grade A OG Greasemonkey content tooooo! Locking up the garage where he’ll make things offish with the love of his smol life… Fate or something, I dunno.

[PART 2] - The Aftermath

LASTLY - A LINK TO SOME LITTLE BTS THROWBACK VID EMMERDALE PUT TOGETHER BACK IN THE DAY - THE POTTED HISTORY OF THE SUGDENS. LOTS OF KARL CONTENT…

I don’t know if this is the kind of post you were after - but there you go. Happy viewing!!! 

If you discover a hidden trove - let me know. 

Likewise, if anyone else has a supply of Karl!Rob content they are willing to share - I will legitimately LOVE YOU FOREVER.

You have been warned…

What’s the worst injury you’ve had

About a year ago I had an accident while riding my bicycle and stupid me wasn’t wearing a helmet, so besides a lightly injured knee, I wounded half of my face. My upper lip had to be sewed with 2 stitches and almost all of my teeth were hurting like shit so I wasn’t able to have proper meals the time after. It was just such a bad time bc I was constantly hungry, tired and everything just hurt. So don’t be a dumb piece of shit like me, wear a damn helmet and keep your eyes open while cycling. Be safe in traffic!

Oh and 5 years ago I broke my arm bc I fell down from the rooftop of a garage (don’t ask, I was a lil kid), so I had to have a few surgeries.

Do you have any obsessions right now?

You mean besides Seventeen? Fanfictions.

Happy Birthday, Steven Universe!

Thank you @stevencrewniverse for all your hard work on the show! Especially @rebeccasugar who probably never gets a day off. lol Thank you to @pearl-likes-pi for running the podcast, too! It’s a lot of fun, and it helped make the hiatus a little more bearable.

Now, in honor of SU’s B-Day, here is a list of all my favorite fandom moments from over the years.

1) Back in the day, people thought Onion was Yellow Diamond/secretly a Homeworld Gem. Hilarity ensued.

2) When “Stronger Than You”/Garnet being a fusion was revealed, everyone lost their collective minds.

3) All the “So this is what Homeworld thinks of fusion!” memes

4) People replacing scenes of the Crystal Gems with Jamie wearing bad Crystal Gem cosplay. Also, people going to cons dressed as Jamie, dressed as a Crystal Gem (cosplay-ception?)

5) Baby Sour Cream is literally the ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) face, and this did not go unnoticed.

6)  “If you defuse Garnet, the Crystal Gems are just Pearl standing over a bunch of child-sized munchkins.”

7) 5 million “cotton candy Garnet” fanarts 20 minutes after “The Answer” aired.

8) When the gems bought Andy a wedding cake, and the fandom declared “every ship is canon now”.

9)  “ Padparadscha is Internet Explorer”

10) That one time Cartoon Network photoshopped Rose holding baby Steven in a promotional image, and the crewniverse was like: “???” when asked about it, so everyone started photoshopping baby Steven into the show, in increasingly ridiculous locations.

11)  “…Is that a weapon?” memes

12) “TERRIFYING RENEGADE PEARL” followed by a picture of Pearl being eccentric, or crying.

13) People photoshopping Amethyst swallowing things after she swallowed the giant burrito in “Bismuth”.

14) “Steven Universe episode 1. Steven sings about icecream. Steven Universe episode x. Steven *insert traumatizing experience here*”


Thank you to all my fandom friends, you guys are amazing <3

HE WALKS DOWN THE STAIRS SO SLOWLY BECAUSE HE’S HOLDING TOBEN SFFHJFS HE’S SUCH A PUPPY DAD I LOVE HIM

anonymous asked:

how do you feel about SU Crit blogs??

I’m kind of jaded about the SU c/rit/ical thing. So like disclaimer, if you’re a fan of the show providing legitimate criticism, that’s one thing. I respect that, like, a lot! But I’ve seen “su cr/iti/cal” blogs complain about such trivial things, down to (literally) inconsistency in Pumpkin’s tongue texture. I feel like at the beginning there was actual valid criticism, but now it’s just turned into a hotbed of negativity.

I think the problem is that some people feel like ragging on something for its flaws somehow demonstrates that you’re more objective or enlightened than those who choose to celebrate the good things about it. But how can you provide a valuable critique of something you’ve already decided you hate? In my opinion, if you find it impossible to acknowledge anything good happening in the show, you’re pretty much just as subjective as someone who is incapable of acknowledging its flaws.

The thing that I mostly don’t like is that when a fan of the show says “I don’t like su c/ri/tical’”, their immediate response is to say “foolish sheeple^tm, you special snowflakes are unable to take criticism about anything you like. these damn millennials !!!” Which is so ironic, because like, that’s just a weak response that gets tossed out by people who claim to be “critics” but are unable to handle when anyone says “hey, that’s a dumb argument and here’s why.”

I do really appreciate that they keep the criticism in their own tag rather than just the general SU one, though, so like, props. They can keep doing their thing, they aren’t hurting anyone. A lot of the time w/ ships and stuff, the actual ship tag is just filled with hate, so it’s nice that these guys don’t post their stuff in the main tag.

also–in case you’re worried this is suddenly gonna transform into a Discourse Blog^tm or something, worry not lol, we are returning to your regular programming right after this post. I just have gotten a lot of messages about this and feel like I should voice my thoughts about it \o/

Lapidot in “Raising the Barn” – From Lapis’ Side

Before I delve into Peridot’s side of the relationship in this episode (in a separate post), I want to take a look at Lapis.

“Peridot, we have to leave Earth – now!”

As soon as Lapis hears about what happens with the Diamonds, she instantly wants to leave.  But notice her Lapis’ reaction here is that “we have to leave”.  If she didn’t care about Peridot so much, she’d have just fled there and then.  She’s clearly absolutely terrified, but she doesn’t want to leave Peridot behind.

In the next scene, we see Peridot getting very worked-up about leaving, and Lapis telling her that they can take all of their stuff with them.  It would appear, then, that Lapis only does this…

…in order to appease Peridot by taking their home with them.  If it were left up to Lapis, she’d have just taken Peridot with her and left the barn behind – but because Peridot is upset about losing the barn, she makes sure to accommodate her.  This means, of course, that Lapis does care about how Peridot feels in all of this and is trying to keep her happy.

The dialogue in this scene is also very interesting:

“There – now we can bring our whole life with us!  You, me, and all of our things!” 

Just look at the dialogue that I’ve put in bold here.  This shows how Lapis and Peridot share their entire life with each other.  Lapis says this with a genuine smile, as if she’s more than happy to acknowledge this fact.  She shares absolutely everything with Peridot and wants to continue doing so.

This is also evidenced here:

Notice how we see emphasis on Lapis squeezing Peridot’s shoulder as she’s talking – she’s literally trying to hold onto Peridot.  Despite her fears and despite everything that’s going on, she desperately doesn’t want to lose Peri.

I mean, heck…

…she was even going to leave Steven behind at this point.

After the trio are reunited with Pumpkin at the end of the episode, Peridot finally decides to be honest with Lapis – by telling her that she doesn’t want them to leave the earth.

“Peridot… what are you trying to say?”

You can really hear the emotion in Lapis’ voice here. The realisation that she’s about to lose Peridot is dawning on her – and she doesn’t like it.

This isn’t the face (or the body language) of someone who wants to leave; far from it, in fact. Lapis is feeling hurt and betrayed by what she sees as a lack of honesty – and is scared.  She’s been put into a very difficult situation and has to make a painful decision. She wants to leave with Peridot, but now she knows Peridot wants to fight for the Earth; which, because of her past traumas, is something that Lapis doesn’t feel able to do right now…

…so she makes the decision to leave.  But, again, look at her face here.  She’s hurting - badly.

She actually pauses to take one last look at Peridot before she flies away – and, again, the agony of this decision is written all over her face.  Because she wanted Peridot to go with her.  She doesn’t want to leave her behind but she’s so afraid of the impending war that she feels like she’s got no choice in the matter.

Now that she’s going to be alone in space for a while, this should give her time to think everything over properly.  Is she going to realise that she’s made a terrible mistake and return to Earth in order to reunite with Peridot and defend their home?  I think it’s highly likely.  Lapis has expressed regret over her negative actions in the past on more than one occasion, so I daresay that she’ll feel guilty for leaving Peridot behind; and will want to make amends.

There’s been a running theme of “home” with Lapis and Peridot in the show up to now.  Lapis thinks she’s taken her home with her into space, but has she really?  “Home is where the heart is”, as the expression goes; and Lapis’ heart is well and truly with Peridot.  I’m certain that, in time, she’ll come to realise this herself.
