ifjasper fucking frost can have a redemption arc, then so can robert henstridge.i mean lets not forget the man jasper was in the beginning of the series.he slept with eleanor while she was drunk/high and was clearly out of her fucking mind to say no, and then he blackmailed her into continuing their little affair even though she didn’t want to. and dont forget the real reason he got a job as her security in the first place, and that was to rob her.
so yeah, robert our villian right now but i do think he can be redeemed. especially since i honestly dont believe that he killed his father simply because the episode literally showed us every flashback scene of robert and it didn’t include any scene of him hiring anyone to kill simon. i also think the reason he stayed in the island longer than he had to was because he didn’t want to return to HIS world, where his father was abolishing the monarchy he was supposed to rule. so yeah, robert has made mistakes but who hasn’t in this trashy show?
it took ONE WOMAN for jasper frost to change and that was eleanor. now i’m hoping willow could be that one woman for robert that can change him for the better as well. now its up to the fucking writers of this shit show to do their job. dont let me down assholes.
And so it begins! Part One of a ten-part series written for @outside-the-government‘s ‘Write Away the Winter Blues’ challenge! I’m thinking 1-2 instalments per week as it goes. I’ll put it together in one long post at the end. Beware, the prompt may look fluffy, but this story is definitely more adventure-suspense (with fluff involved of course!)
Because I love them both, I’m melding the TOS and AOS Bones timelines. If you so desire, there are easter eggs to be found!
Fandom: Star Trek (AOS/TOS). Pairing: Reader X Bones
Warnings: some suspense, a few mild swear words. Can’t think of anything else!
Tagging @medicatemedrmccoy :D Thanks for letting me ramble about this fic! If anyone else wants to be tagged just let me know!
“Captain’s Log, Stardate 2285.4. We are orbiting an unknown planet, which lies beyond Starfleet’s updated star charts. I’ve elected to call it ‘Surak’, because it looks peaceful, but it appears there’s turbulence under the surface. Plus I’m 99% certain it will annoy Mr. Spock, a fringe benefit of being Captain.”
“Captain, I am incapable of experiencing annoyance.”
“I amend my statement. I am 100% certain it annoys Mr. Spock. Regardless, we have detected a Starfleet medical distress signal coming from this planet, which - according got our sensors - currently houses humanoid life with a culture distinctly similar to early 21st century Earth. To limit possible disruption, I am only sending Dr. McCoy and security officer Y/l/n to the planet’s surface. They are scheduled to report back in one hour.”
Pressing the button to end recording, Kirk looked out at the slowly rotating planet, the red land gleaming in sunlight. You and Bones were down there somewhere. It was the right call but still, he hated not being on the away mission. Drumming his fingers on the arm of his chair, Kirk realized it was useless.
“Mr. Spock, you have the con.” rising from his seat, Kirk moved to leave the bridge. Maybe if he practiced some more he could finally get that nerve pinch to work.
Instead of another Sly Cooper game or a movie a Sly Cooper comic series is produced.
On the production side: I think it would cost much less than a movie or game and there are TONS of potential scenarios. With the two that were released around Sly 3 there’s already a template to work off!
On the fan side: It would be nice to have a game or movie but a comic series could be a continuous thing. There would be an abundance of new adventures and heists. Probably some new characters thrown in there. Or the series can start from the beginning, with Sly’s childhood and spiral either into the specific tales of the games, or a re imaging of the whole story. (Or maybe we could get the Sly4 cliffhanger resolved)
It seems super far fetched, but I wonder if we threw this idea to Sony (because they have the licensing) maybe they could pass it on to a comic creator.
I was watching a bts for series 3 on Netflix, and at the beginning they claimed that the secret of how Sherlock survived in TRF would be revealed, but looking back, did we ever find out? I know there were many theories in the show, but it was kind of left as a mystery wasn't it? Why is that, and do you think they'll ever explicitly explain how? Thanks!
Well based up upon what’s happening now, I think it’s entirely intentional that they never cleared up exactly how Sherlock did it. I think they intended Sherlock’s explanation to Anderson to be the “real” one, but they way they left it (”I’m the last person you’d tell the truth to”) made us doubt everything we’d been told. On purpose. In order to draw that comparison between the Theorists on the internet and Anderson in real life and have the actual show “Sherlock” take the Reichenbach Fall.
I don’t think they’re going to actually tell us for real how he did it, partly because it’s old news, partly because it doesn’t really matter. What matters is why he did it, which I hope we’ll get to see John realize soon.
Around when I was 13 years old I was reading a book series that introduced me to the teachings of Wicca & basic aspects of Paganism. I was raised Catholic but in the way that my parents sent me to Sunday school & we only went to church on special occasions bc it’s what the rest of the family did. I had never resonated with the Christian teachings but never dismissed it completely, just knew I’d find my truth eventually (hello to the old soul in my little kid mind, lol).
Reading about paganism resonated, it was the first time anything had made me feel this deeper connection. Learning about honoring elements, plants, connecting with nature while also connecting to a divine source, that made sense to me, that made me feel some type of way.
So starting at 13 I began teaching myself & learning, navigating my path finding the things that felt right & moving on from the parts that didn’t. I would sneak away to the metaphysics section in book stores & read about spirits, witches, magick, auras..I began stock piling information from online as well.
Fast forward to my later teenage years & I’m beginning to learn about crystals & using them as healing aids.
Fast forward another few years & I was very sick with migraines 24/7, I had fainted from being so sick & ended up soaring through space up into the most beautiful white glowing light. I became part of the light, & experienced the feeling of true bliss, true grace & peace. This place was home & I remembered it! Then it felt like someone had yanked a string & I abruptly was falling back down through a tunnel of stars & then woke back up in my physical body. THIS experience is what really got me connected & really fueled the light inside of me.✨✨ I could keep going, but that’s the basis of some of my story ❤️😌
I'm sooo confused. Are you re-writing ACOMAF in Rhys's POV? Like, all the scenes? I thought you already did 50% of ACOMAF in his POV? Pls, clear my confusion!
I… don’t… know..? Maybe? I wouldn’t say I’ve written that much of the book from Rhys’s POV, but I have written a good little chunk of the more major chapters. I’ve always sort of had a tug to write the whole thing, but just never thought I could do it or would have the time. After Christmas, I didn’t really have fics to work on and I’d enjoyed writing Rhys so much, so I went back to the beginning and started. I wrote this series with the intention of writing the whole book, but now that I got Part 1 out of the way, I feel complacent again. I would say - for now - that yes, I’ll probably keep going (assuming people even want this?), but it will probably be in slow waves over many moons and I wouldn’t be surprised if I have to edit some of the old fics to make it work since I wrote everything out of order. Sorry to be so confusing!
YO I read your post on Tana French's books, and I want to read her work now. Do I need to start at the beginning of the Dublin Murder Squad series? Is there a better place to start? Does it not really matter? Any recommendations?
YAY FOR TANA FRENCH! :D
Because each book’s narrator was a character in a previous book (except for the first one), it’s pretty crucial to read them in order. So, this is the course to follow:
In the Woods The Likeness Faithful Place Broken Harbor The Secret Place The Trespasser
I love them all, and am always rereading them along with whatever other books I have going (sort of like how I always have an Eliza Shepard Mass Effect playthrough going) – I really, really hope you enjoy them! :D
Also can i just say that while I know that about 70% of Blood Banks readers are exactly this, I in no way support the straight girl fetishists who read Blood Bank because they think the SM scenes in the early chapters are ‘hot yaoi’. The earliest of those scenes are of extremely dubious consent, and there is the scene that is full on abuse. of course, this scene is the one that sparks the progression of shell and eric’s relationship, but it was - for the most part, because honestly Shell carries the series during the beginning - an uncomfortable read, and anything before the scene where Shell finds Eric and Eric apologises should not be considered a healthy or accurate portrayal of a M/M relationship. Of course, the plot has kicked in, and Shell and Eric’s relationship evolves into one of pure love, rather than solely the SM sessions from before, and if you can stomach SM and the dubious consent that comes with Humiliation play then Blood Bank is definitely worth a read. But not for M/M fetishists, for people who enjoy the story and characters
“What Shall I Do, Lemony Snicket?” from one of the special paperback versions of A Series of Unfortunate Events. I think this was from The Bad Beginning, or Orphans!
I took these back in June of 2015 right after I graduated high school and was going to the campus university bookstore after our orientation and class scheduling. I’m glad I did because the bookstore doesn’t carry it anymore or else I would have totally bought it now.
I just love these questions and answers, so I wanted to keep them as a means to laugh or smile when I was bored or upset. Now I felt like sharing them with you all.
