the fact that he video taped it

She Tastes like Candlelight 

MSR

Explicit 

It starts with, of all things, a pair of old jeans and a t-shirt.

Logically, he knows it doesn’t make sense. She comes to work in form-fitted jackets that go tight about her waist. She’s been foregoing the baggy slacks in favor of skirts that stop just below the knees, with nylons clinging to the defined musculature of her calves; he’s pretty sure he can count on one hand the number of times he’s seen her wear shoes other than heels, excluding the clinical, white shoes she wears with her scrubs during autopsies.

He’s seen the looks she gets. Sometimes, it’s during an interview, when a witness’s gaze will linger just a little too long on her bustline, and her hand will go up and fiddle with her necklace, her arm blocking her chest in subtle defiance. Other times, it’s men on the streets of the city, shouting out obscenities to her, having the audacity to call her “baby,” and “sweetheart,” and he fights the urge to yell right back, brandishing his badge and his gun, wanting to scare the misogyny right out of the bones of anyone who thinks they’re entitled to her body, but he knows that she would find it condescending. “Thank you, but I can handle myself, Mulder,” she’d say, and it’s not that he thinks she can’t—he just doesn’t want her to have to.

And still other times, the looks come not from strangers on the sidewalk, or from people he can reduce to photos in a casefile, but from their peers. Educated, talented men who transform themselves into slobbery, teenage boys when sitting adjacent to her in meetings, eyeing her with an inappropriate hunger while she jots down notes in the margins of her agenda sheet. More than once, Mulder has found himself in the elevator with a man who will look down at Scully, and then catch Mulder’s eye over the top of her head, just so that he can wink, including him in some inside joke he has no interest being a part of.

He supposes that he empirically knows that Scully is attractive—it’s more or less objective fact—but he’s never allowed himself to notice. He’s trained himself to observe her through a filter. He considers her appearance through what he aptly names the Sexual Harassment Video Gaze. He quickly shuts down any thought that could be used as an example in a training tape on inappropriate office behavior.

Give us more of your happy headcanons please 😊

i hope this means like just like regular msr headcanons? right? if im wrong just give me another ask and ill do the something else :$) and like thank u for sending this :$)

btw happy headcanons: thats the cutest thing ive ever read by the way. happy headcanons. i dont know why i just

-mulder and scully had saw each other prior to the pilot meeting. i mean, one or both of them had probably attended a lecture that the other had done and were familiar with their face. i mean, given that neither passed out when they laid eyes on each other.

-after their first meeting, scully went home (btw why the fuck was she dismissed after like five minutes at work. ‘we leave for the very plausible state of oregon at 8 am see u tomorrow’ what the fuck) but after their first meeting, scully called ellen and told her she was working with that hot lecturer from last year and he was coincidentally spooky mulder, the most single man on the planet. help me ellen i dont know if ill make it.

-mulder called the gunmen because he needed advice about this adorable little redhead that had been assigned to him and oh god im screwed. i mean i hope one day i will be, but right now, im totally, metaphorically, screwed. she was sent to spy on me right???? what do i do now?????

-mulder’s fear of fire (i know but just wait) was cured after that case, one because scully was there and he knew nothing bad was gonna happen to him so he felt more comfortable facing said fear, and two, 'scully was there and she was really really cute and i was tryin to get with her all this first year and then that bitch phoebe showed up and fucked everything up and im not letting her have any power over me so there. fear cancelled. ’

-mulder slept with like a sheet as a blanket for years. he overheats. hes a walking furnace. but after the season 3 incident (or was there one before??) where mulder spends the night in scullys bed because he got poisoned, he noticed that she had a lot of covers on her bed. so eventually he went out and bought a ton of blankets just in case she ever spent the night at his place (purely platonically right???) and so she wouldnt get cold.

-not msr related but walter skinner knits. and is good at it. check out his etsy store. smoking man-voodoo dolls half off until forever.

-not happy, but the reason why mulder wears such hideous ties is because his father and his minions were government workers and always impeccably dressed, and when mulder became a federal agent, he hated the idea that he was growing up to be just like the man, so he embraced the 90’s style.

-scully could never tell you, but maggie could: mulder adn scully had worked together for three months. just three months. and by that time, scully had stashed a pack of sunflower seeds in her car, her apartment, mulder’s car (that man cannot think ahead), her mother’s house and the cushions of the mulder’s normal chair in walter skinner’s office.

-alternatively, mulder stashed scully’s favorite cassettes in his car, his apartment (hey, he could dance. maybe if the mood struck them they’d put something on and let some yayas out), the office (for when she was in a particularly awful mood because of some shit he pulled.)

-scully always gets mulder cryptid or alien gizmos when shes out of town. mulder always gets her science or medical related stuff. they once had to suffer through a budget meeting in 98 degree heat with their coats on because neither was willing to show off the “i’m feeling all science-y” (spelled with periodic letters), or the “aliens exist” temporary tattoos they were each sporting.

-at the end of every month, whoever has been to the hospital more takes the other out to dinner. it started out as a formal affair, going to a fancy restaurant and pretending that they were just friends not fbi partners. now the atmosphere is still the same, but they go to sandwich shops or burger places. scully just wanted to make sure mulder didn’t go broke since he was paying for dinner every time.

-the gunmen do regular bug sweeps of the office, their apartments, and maggie scully’s house. it was actually mulder who asked them to do hers because the adoption papers have almost gone through and his new mom needs protection. but once a month, the gunmen have a great time going over to maggies, they have lunch with her, and then in the afternoon right as they’re wrapping up, maggie’s friends come over to play cards adn invite melvin, richard and john to play with them.

-the gunmen are the #1 Caught in the Act witnesses because of the bug sweeps at the wrong times. maggie scully is #2. william scully was #3. an incident with the 3rd victim and Return of the Jedi movie night caused carrie fisher’s gold bikini to be forever tainted.

-maggie scully is very protective of fox. shes well aware that shes’ the only person who can call him fox without triggering him, and she loves this poor boy. she’s his second emergency contact, after scully of course, adn occasionally she’ll get a call saying fox is in the hospital only to show up and find her daughter straddling his hips with her tongue down his throat. “DANA KATHERINE SCULLY THIS MAN NEEDS HIS REST AND IF I FIND YOU DISTRACTING HIM FROM THAT ONE MORE TIME I’LL HAVE YOU THROWN OUT OF THE HOSPITAL UNTIL HES BETTER.” “maggie im really okay” “FOX YOU WOULDNT BE IN THE HOSPITAL IF YOU WERE OKAY.” and meanwhile scully’s hiding under mulder’s covers with a face to match her hair.

-walter skinner is genuinely terrified of maggie.

-totally not a headcanon yall probably know this from watching season seven right???? right????? but mulder agreed to go to oregon with skinner under one condition: scully goes to the hospital and gets checked out. i’m not leaving you until i know that you’re not going to pass out alone in the apartment and accidentally die.

-mulder never cried harder than when he found out scully was pregnant.

-“skinman i quit the bureau thank you and goodby-”“wait, sir, its me, agent scully, ill call you right back after mulder and i have a talk ok?”

-mulder’s allergic to pineapples. but it mysteriously went away a week after everyone found out about it.

-scully was forced by maggie to go to her high school reunion, and so she convinced mulder to come and put on the s'mulder (he trademarked that thats another story) and get back at those fucking bitches who bullied her for trying to start a biology club.

-actual dialogue from that night:
“Scully? You tried to start a biology club that’s so cute.”
“Emphasis on try.”
“What, no one wanted to compete with Dana Scully’s genius?”
“More like no one wanted to be around Dana Scully.”
“Awww, Scully, I would have been in the biology club with you.”
“Thanks, Mulder.”
“we can start our own biology club”
“mulder we’re not- whatever. oh wait check out my butt, stephanie baker is looking”

-scully and mulder both gave each other stars for christmas the same year, and they went stargazing to try and find them, only to discover that they were right next to each other in the sky.

-scully did in fact give mulder porn for christmas that one year. that seems really weird but you didn’t see the card.

“heres blank tape, video camera’s all set up. figured since those tapes aren’t yours, we could make one that was.”

-the gunmen can quote the lazarus bowl line for line. so can skinner. he plays it whenever hes sad.

-mulder makes a point of PDA towards scully whenever bill scully jrs in the room. not enough to be obviously trying to piss him off, but enough that he most certainly is.

-mulder changed his shampoo to make his hair especially fluffy circa season 2. do you miss me scully? do you miss petting my fluffy hair?

-anytime one of them asks the other for a drink, mulder will bring scully iced tea, and she’ll bring him root beer. everytime he’ll throw his head back in mock disappointment like that one stakeout.

-mulder is very aware of how much it turns scully on to see him with no jacket, dress shirt arms rolled up to his elbows. thank goodness he normally runs hot.

-they both secretly love when the other rests their head on their shoulder. but of course they never admit it.

-mulder always makes them run an office secret santa. just the two of them. because hes mulder.

-his fish have all been named after moby dick characters since he heard that that was a thing.

-they went on runs together during that second year just to be able to spend time together, but then stopped because how the fucking hell is scully faster than him, im sorry scully you’re ruining my rep, im gonna have to pretend i wasn’t just beaten in a 5k run by someone nine inches shorter than me.

-mulders mother bought him a polaroid camera when he went off to england for school, saying that he’d make so many memories adn all that crap. he never used it until he and scully were put on fertilizer background checking and he wanted to make the best of their roadtrips. she then bought one of her own and thus began the most intense contest of their lives to see who could take the most candid shots of the other. at this point in time, mulder’s closet has just of boxes of pictures of scully.

-their son would find all these thousands of pictures years later and wonder, for the thousandth time that day, what the fuck was wrong with his parents.

-they once had to take a ferry. dont ask me how or why, but it was just something they had to do. and mulder refused to stop just quoting lines from moby dick. the only way that scully could get him to stop was to pretend to see a nessie like creature.

-scully dominates at paintball, and when her son hit eleven years old, became the coolest person in the world hands down. mulder didnt stop trying to convince her that she was ALWAYS the coolest person in the world.

-they have a box of mulder’s clothes that scully simply labeled “the apocalypse could be upon us but so help me if these jeans go missing, i will hunt you down and end you.” nobody touches her man’s ass hugging jeans.

-scully + hoodie + overcaffinated mulder =

[this was the last thing i wrote last night before i passed out and i have no idea where i was trying to go with it but i think its hilarious so…]

-when mulder adn scully were first picking out things for their home together, mulder came home with a light blue-purple linen comforter. he liked the color and the texture and they loved it for exactly one year until william threw up on it and they couldnt get the stain out.

-mulder has been banned from the local florist because he loitered too long trying to pick out flowers for scully, they thought it was suspicious.

-mulder then got into gardening, and was taught by skinner how to not kill a plant.

-they have a sunflower patch right outside william’s bedroom window.

-maggie knit a blanket for william that he slept wrapped up in until he was in grad school adn the stitching finally gave out.

-if they were to have another kid, the siblings would have a rapport much like mulder and samantha’s or melissa adn scully’s. they called each other buttmunch adn teased and pulled each others hair, but let each other tag along on adventures and shit.

-mulder has a frequent customer card from LUSH because his lady loves baths and he loves excuses to follow her around smelling her hair all damn day.

-theres a fair in the tiny town they live in once a year in july. they have a family tradition of going to it, and watching fireworks and going on rides. by ten o'clock, every single time, both kids would crash from the funnel cake-induced sugar high.

-the first movie william scully ever attended was the incredibles. until the age of 9 he wanted to be a superhero and mulder 100% supported him and tried to get scully to do some science experiment that would make their son into a superhero.

-they live in a tiny town where the only entertainment is either a movie theater running very old movies or the local elementary school’s talent show. theres a farmers market on the main street every weekend in the summer and the mulder-scully clan often will bike down and hang out there for the day.

-mulder and scully chaperone school dances. every single dance. if there’s a photo booth, they’ll go make out in said photo booth and embarrass their kids only slightly more than if they were slow dancing in the middle of the vacant dance floor. “cant you just be normal???? i get you waited years to get together and are 'makin up for lost time’ but you dont have to take it out on me!!!!!”

-every year they host a “sci-fi july” for all of their friends and their families. they hang a sheet up outside every saturday night in july and watch a different sci fi movie out on the projector. scully and mulder can always be found in the back of the crowd, cuddling in a beanbag and arguing about inaccuracies.

-drive in movies. mulder adn scully cuddling in the back seat of the car while their offspring block their view on the hood of it, sharing a box of fries.

-maggie dominates the bake sale. neither mulder or scully can cook for shit and so they enlist maggie and she becomes famous.

-william has been banned from playing poker. after winning far too much off of uncle frohike, he’s been demoted to crazy 8s.

-mulder has half an alien face tattooed on his lower back. since scully has a tattoo he should too right? but he could only handle the tattoo needle for so long and afterwards scully assured him that half an alien head looked plenty cool and she loved it. he didn’t really care, she’d be the only one to get to see it, but he was more fascinated about why the hell the tattoo needle turned her on originally????? wh- how-??? scully????

-uncle skinner takes his godchildren’s halloween costumes to a new level.

-the bullpen bet as to who the father of scully’s kid was (please everyone knew it was mulder, but they were just bored) was called off when scully left early one day with the most intense craving for sunflower seeds.

-the only thing that mulder knows how to cook is grilled cheese and tomato soup. you’d think toast would be easier than grilled cheese, adn therefore something he could cook, but that is not the case.

-anytime one of the kids is sick, mulder or scully stays home with them and they spend the entire day playing scrabble and eating cinnamon toast.

-an older will is completely unable to walk anywhere near the hoover building without being yelled at as “HEY SPOOKY MU- oh sorry buddy. jeez you look like your dad”.

-as they grow older, mulder and scully decide to retire from the bureau. scully will occasionally do pathology consulting or lecture circuits, but for the most part, they simply stay around their home in virginia and have the peace that they always dreamed of.

-but that said, after their retirement, the x files, for the first time, remained open, and in years to come, many agents worked their way in and out of the office, none having as much a lasting devotion to it as mulder adn scully had. the few that did last fairly long had just as much trouble with the government conspiracies as their predecessors, despite the smoking man being long dead.

and when these agents had difficulty on cases, when they were clearly lacking in bits of information only people deeply involved with the conspiracy or long-time observants would know, all of these agents made their way out into the more rural parts of virginia, to an old but warm house, and they’d sit on the porch listening to mulder and scully bicker about what was true or not, now being the deep throat contact that the x files depends on. but for the first time, these deep throats weren’t at risk of murder because the head of the fbi was their children’s godfather and god help the poor bastard who disrupted their peaceful life.

-mulder always keeps the freezer stocked with chocolate ice cream. if its not, it is treated like a national emergency.

“Well we recently found out your wife was a Pussycat,” he said, the crowd got caught a wave of nostalgia and cheered. 

“This is correct,” he laughed. 

“Play the tape! Play the tape!” Anthony yelled as the mc held up a cd. 

Within seconds the music video to Buttons was playing on the giant screen behind them. the cast started to dance in their seats while Sebastian put down his mic and covered his face with his hands in embarrassment. Fact: his wife was gorgeous, Fact: She was the leader and damn good at it. 

“Seabass…why did you hide this from us? Y/N was phenomenal,” Anthony laughed when the short clip ended. 

“Dude, was she the one that taught you how to dance?” Tom chimed in. 

“You both are awful,” Sebastian groaned with a bright pink blush on his face.

riahraver  asked:

Hi, I just read your simon/louis post and you mentioned the idea that he wouldn't have kept Louis around if the boyband wasn't already formed before bootcamp. I am intrigued by this and remember discussions going around a few years back about the possibility of when exactly it was all planned, etc. So I was wondering your take on the whole thing: do you feel they were picked via simon at like the audition stage to fit his mold of what he wanted? Or do you think that it might even go deeper (1)

(2) and they auditioned/knew that they were being formed before bootcamp, etc? I have wondered in the past just how deep and far back the manipulation and setup goes. So was just curious on your take. If you have tags or anything, no need to answer. And obv, no need to publish if you don’t want. Thanks and have a great day!

Hello! No, I don’t have a tag for this, but I am actually writing a book about it called You’ve Got It! which is a satirical novel but the parallels are quite obvious so there’s no use in being like 

I do not personally believe that any of the boys were told the truth about how and when the band was formed during the X-Factor stage of their careers. There was literally no need to and given the state of them backstage when they thought they were eliminated, I believe that was genuine emotion. 

Full offence, none of them are this good at acting…well, at least they weren’t at the time. (Hello give Harry all the awards for Dunkirk.)

The filmed portion of the X-Factor is like the third stage for these people. A producer will see each contestant individually before deciding whether or not they get to go to the taping stage of the show. They do not interview every single person on camera who goes to the audition, so the fact that there is so much footage of Louis before he got onstage indicates to me that he had already been flagged as at the very least a potential contestant. 

These shows are about entertainment and given Louis’ background in school musical theatre they were probably satisfied that he at least had stage presence - not something you can determine by someone singing into a video recorder by themselves. That’s pretty common with most of the contestants that aren’t total randos that seem like they’ve been plucked off the street. Zayn also played Danny in his school’s production of Greece, Harry was already the front man of a band, Liam had been on the show the year before, Niall was Niall aka one of the brightest and largest presences I’ve ever seen. I’ve said before that I’ve got the most mutual acquaintances with Niall and they all say the same thing, there’s just something about him. An “x factor” if you will. The producers do not go into taping this show blind, that would be an incredible waste of time and money. There is just an illusion of spontaneity and I don’t imagine that putting a boy band together is any different. There is a very small percentage of people who come in from the open call and genuinely walk onto the show, but everyone that I personally know that got to the bootcamp stage of the X Factor had already seen a producer and registered for the auditions prior to going on the show. 

Whether or not the guy I knew who was kicked off for throwing this party with Louis was going to make it through is still unknown. I’ve seen him sing multiple times and he is a phenomenal singer with an interesting story so I think he definitely had a chance given that they invited him to audition again the following year via an email from the producers but who knows. 

What I am quite sure of is that had Louis not already been chosen to be in the band there’s no way they would have kept him around just to kick him off the show the next day.

Yoongi Scenario: Million Reasons.

Request: DO you think you could write a scenario where Suga and the reader’s (she’s an idol that debuted around the same time as them so they’ve always been friends basically) relationship becomes public and there’s a lot of hate so they start avoiding each other and it gets really hard for the both of them.  + Hello! May I please request a Yoongi scenario in which the reader is his best friend who he is very affectionate with, and he has trouble sleeping so he walks to the reader’s apartment in the middle of the night and it was raining so he’s soaked. Thank you for your hard work! I hope it’s not too complex.

Genre: Romance / Drama


One of the things that made you angry was the fact that you didn’t know who had found out about your relationship, or more like who had sold you to the netizens.
The best way to describe everything that had happened to Yoongi and you the last few months would be if you compared it with an avalanche. It was like the two of you had been at a mountain at the very top of the world, together, but when you least expected it you had fallen off, and every little thing since then had accumulated making that fall bigger and bigger, leaving you at the end hurt and cold, you didn’t know where you stood anymore, but in the fall you had had to let go of Yoongi’s hand.

The fans had been ruthless, they went far beyond not taking it well, the netizens bashed the two of you for being deceiving and untrue to your fans, and the talk shows only spoke about the sneaky couple that had managed to keep the relationship a secret for such a long time, three years, you had pulled it off for three years and in a moment everything was ruined.

You hugged your knees to your chest as you saw the new threads on the internet about Yoongi and you, there were still a lot, but since your last statements it had diminished a little. After everything blew up, both your agency and Big Hit stayed quiet waiting for your confirmation on what to do next, you had kept it that way for a week or so, in which the fans and the press only were motivated to investigate more until they found a video tape on a security camera that showed clearly the two of you holding hands and sharing a few kisses in a parking lot.

You remembered that day, he had just come out of prerecording mcountdown and you had gone there with your manager to discuss a few things about your next stage, while your manager took care of that you had met Yoongi, you had thought that nobody was around and yes you had carelessly showed affection, dating wasn’t easy for neither of you, so you took any chance to share a kiss or to just touch him. You had thought that you could do it without harming anyone, but judging by how the fans reacted when the news went out you had no idea.

You tried to hold it together, but after the video tape was out both of you were the targets of the scorn of the fans, more you than him you had to admit, your fans were protective but his were another deal, maybe because of the fact that he was a man and had more fangirls who had demonstrated to be more extreme. You had been the target of false rumors and accusations ever since, everybody harassed you to say something, anything about Min Yoongi, and you had wanted to be brave and strong and just face the world by his side, tell them that yes you were together and happy, and that you planned to stay that way. But that was just a dream, your agency realized that this could end with your career and thus you had had to say the unthinkable to a media reporter.

“We dated a few times but it wasn’t serious, we are not together”

You had said that without telling him, instead of all the things you wanted to say you had told a lie to save yourself, but that lie had become a fact, you had months without seeing Yoongi.

Gabe theory!!!

Ok so. I have a theory of why Gabriel is not dead, based mostly on the plot of hammer of Gods.

First of all, I shall start with the question whether Gabriel thought he was going to die or not. Before confronting his brother, we all know he had made a “if you watch this, I’m dead” video tape and gave it to the Winchester brothers. It’s clearly that the tape was destined to THEM and only, so, that could only mean that he already knew he would meet Sam and Dean sometimes and that he has to give them such a tape. If you watch closely, you can see perfectly that the two appearances, the one from the tape and Gabriel in the episode, are different : other haircut, other outfit. Yes, you could say that he is the trickster and he could have pulled out a trick to manage to do that, but most unlikely… He made the tape long time before. So, why would you ever make a tape like that unless you have some suspicions concerning your life and whether you will die sooner or later?? He made the video to inform the brothers about a way how to stop the apocalypse, so he knew, or at least, the thought of him dying before Armageddon happens, before Lucifer being killed, crossed his mind. 

Now, who or what could have been such an important threat towards his life in order to actually make a video tape? He is an archangel after all, you can only murder him by using an archangel blade. Two options we most likely have in this case : 1. someone who is very powerful and who could some way steal his blade, or 2. someone who already has one. Yet, if in the first case you could consider the Gods from the meeting, that he already knew he was going to join in, then remember the fact that he literally said he wouldn’t have been that stupid to let Kali steal his veritable blade, because that could have killed him. 

So, the first option instantly falls. It’s someone who might have an archangel blade. There is no point in adding that the only threat is Lucifer. Gabriel knew he was going to fight his brother, he knew he might die, he knew he might get killed, he knew HE HAD TO MURDER HIS OWN SIBLING, he knew he might not be cunning enough to trick him after all. He gives the tape to Dean and Sammy right before talking to Luci, so he just knew way before that might even happening. He knew he might never see them again. He wanted to risk his own life to save the humankind by killing Lucifer WAY LONG BEFORE THE WINCHESTERS EVEN MENTIONED THAT POSSIBILITY. He had thought of sacrificing himself long before anyone else thought of that. That kind his soul was.

 But now the problem arises! If he had indeed murdered Lucifer, the way he thought he would (also, from the look of surprise on his face it’s pretty clear he was quite shocked by his failure), then the apocalypse issue would have been stopped! But now that he died, the problem had to weigh down the brothers’ shoulders again. Gabriel’s death was useless!! He could have told Sam and Dean about the cage without getting killed. He could have solved everything in that way better. Yes, still, there WOULD have been the chance of him actually killing his brother and solving the issues faster and more comfortably, so he literally stood up for himself and humanity and risked everything he had just to make the Winchesters’ life easier… Still, the possibility of him dying doesn’t help them at all!! So what if he was sure he wasn’t going to die?? Why the heck would you ever join a confrontation where you might die, and your death would serve for nothing? I kind of feel that he mostly served himself without any cost to Lucifer. The battle was already lost. He was either going to kill his own brother, or most probably he was going to die, like he just knew… Yes, he wanted to finally solve his family problems and help the brothers, but Gabriel is not the type of loser. And he is the trickster. I sincerely believe he is not dead because he had no reasons to take that chance. He had no reasons to get in such a battle that would bring up his death for nothing. He had an escape plan. That’s for sure. Him fighting Lucifer is either a really brave, outstanding and relatively stupid plan, either a masterpiece trick. So, he’s either waaay too good and brave for this world, or he is alive.

 I’m good with both variants :))

anonymous asked:

How do you think Dio reacted to waking up in the 1980s? From a cultural and technological pov.

i love this ask because it makes me think about lestat waking up after his 100 year long Sadness Nap because the people in the house above him are an aspiring band and keep playing rock music??? au where instead of going after the joestars dio and his minions just formed a rock band

- At first, he’ll be deeply confused by everything happening around him; women with so much of their flesh showing, rough and ready shouts, language that he’s never heard before - that doesn’t mean it’s entirely unwelcome, though. He might have some trouble adjusting - he spent so much of his life trying to be an unassuming gentleman, after all - but he’d be delighted that his natural charm still shows through and his good manners and cut-glass accent do just as good a job of seducing people as his vampiric qualities do. 
- People are free, now, and Dio doesn’t have to feel ashamed about his desire and interest in people from all walks and types of life - he doesn’t need to worry about his gentleman’s reputation, and nobody thinks it’s strange to see him go off into the night with a different beautiful woman every day. 
- He’s fascinated by technological advancements; cameras, cell phones, movies … he’s smart, so it doesn’t take him too long to find history books and science books and learn how they work and how they’re made, but they’re still amazing to him. How things have such permanence now - he can’t help but think about his own permanence, and what scope he has for spreading his word if he has video tapes and such to help. 
- And don’t get him started on the clothes. So many new fabrics! So many colours, and sparkles! He’ll be in his element - and what’s more, people don’t stare at him for it. In fact, seeing his body and his eyes and his grin, people look at him with awe and assume he’s a rock star or something similar. 
- Dio loves the 80s, and he’s happy to have woken up there.

The Greeks went to see drama because they felt like this wasn’t happening to them. It’s that sense of exaggeration, of everything being so over the top – someone gets stabbed, then they fuck and then they both get poisoned. It’s exaggerated, but that’s what allows catharsis. I used to be really ashamed. When I was young, I put on performances for my family and my parents where I would dance like a woman, singing a really exaggerated woman’s vocal in front of my whole family. Until one day my grandfather, who would never be in the room (for these performances), finally walked in and said something. I loved my grandfather very much, but he was a typical Venezuelan-via-Spain patriarch. It was the first time I was looked at with disgust and shame, at an age when no one gets looked at like that. That was my first taste of contempt. My uncle had a recording of it. Throughout my whole early puberty until I was 17 he would torture me, telling me that he would show those recordings. He’d be like, ‘I have those films. I’m going to put on those films!’ And my body would tighten up. With that perverse pleasure that Latin American men feel at the fact that they have annihilated something inside of you, which they probably annihilated in themselves. But that’s how I felt like being! So now I’m at the age when I want that tape, and when I ask him for it he gags. Because I want to screen it at my shows. I’m licking my elbows to Madonna’s ‘Erotica’ (in the video). It’s not tame. I’m rubbing my crotch, I’m on the floor with a blanket for a skirt, I’m licking my armpit. But when I asked for the tape (my uncle) just said, ‘I lost it.’ What used to make me ashamed and paralysed now makes me mobile.

Pairing: Teacher!Kihyun x reader

Genre: fluff??

Length: 1,355 words

Summary: You and Kihyun are rival teachers, but there’s something about those eyes…

a/n: I definitely wrote this in the car when I couldn’t stop thinking about snarky Kihyun as a teacher. 

Fact: Choosing to be a high school math teacher is a death wish. You sit at your desk, mulling over options for alternate employment. You could always go back to college and follow your first dream of becoming an astronaut, but there is too much science involved so you cross that out. The prospect of dropping your career to become an ice cream salesman is sweeter the more your glance at the stack of ungraded tests in your wake.

It is well past evening, and the sun is already setting. A warm glow of pink and orange casts itself over your desk. For a moment, there is peace in the quiet. Your overworked brain silences itself and you thank it. Just in a day’s, you’d written up three boys for trying to video tape under a girl’s skirt, and a couple making out in the janitor’s closet. Really, the closet? What was this, high school? Wait…

A rap of knuckles on the door pulls you from your thoughts. There in the doorframe stands Yoo Kihyun, also known as your arch nemesis. You two have been at each other’s throats since his third period class beat yours in a scholastics competition your first year teaching. You’d prepared your kids for weeks to compete against the cocky gremlin only to lose 25-20 –a fact he never let you live down.

He’s dressed like a model straight from a J. Crew catalog: a blue striped button down, khakis, and a pair of round spectacles that make him look like a bug. O! How you would love to slap those glasses right off that smug face that’s looking at you in amusement.

Samantha Bee’s ‘Not the WHCD’ Should Be An Annual Tradition If Trump Continues to Boycott the Real One

By Andrea Reiher

Andrea Reiher at Variety:

Hours before “nerd prom” kicked off at the White House Correspondents Dinner in D.C. — minus the president — Samantha Bee and her “Full Frontal” cohorts took the stage at DAR Constitution Hall for TBS’ “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.” The alt-TV special was more than twice the length of a regular “Full Frontal” episode, letting Bee’s typical ruthless comedy and satire loose with both barrels.

If viewers tuned in hoping for an hour of bashing President Trump, they were in for some disappointment. Not that there weren’t some excellent barbs made at POTUS’ expense, but the night was more about celebrating the often-maligned journalists who continue to try to do their jobs in the face of adversity.

“You (journalists) basically get paid to stand in a cage while a geriatric orangutan and his pet mob scream at you. It’s like a reverse zoo. But you carry on. You dig up misdeeds and frauds by the powerful, you expose injustice against the weak and you continue to fact-check the president as if he might someday get embarrassed,” said Bee, to big laughs.

And that was the right approach for this special, taped Saturday afternoon in D.C. and broadcast hours later (10 p.m. ET/PT) on TBS. A full-on roast of Trump would have been enjoyable for a while, but it would have gotten tired. The “Full Frontal” gang is not a one-trick pony, and they put that on a brilliant display, from video segments of Bee performing at imagined past Correspondents’ Dinners (and also an imagined 2018 WHCD for President Pence), to a cold open featuring “West Wing” alum Allison Janney giving a press conference in her snappy CJ Cregg way, to Will Ferrell popping by to reprise his George W. Bush impression from “Saturday Night Live.”

It made for a lively mix of comedy that never felt bogged down or like it was beating a dead horse by repeating itself.

It was also nice to see Bee not pull any punches in regards to the press (not that viewers expected any less). Not only did the special land some pointed commentary at outlets like Breitbart and the way Fox News dealt with its sexual harassment issues, it also did a segment about how much CNN is wasting its cadre of talented journalists in favor of whatever it is CNN puts on the air most of the time. Bee put the blame squarely on CNN president Jeff Zucker’s shoulders.

“Zucker’s greatest success since ‘The Apprentice’ — which, by the way, thanks for that — is filling the airtime between car crashes with a reality show loosely based on the news where loyal partisan hacks make us measurably dumber by spewing mendacious nonsense while a hologram of Anderson Cooper stands by counting the seconds to the commercials for all the pharmaceuticals he probably wishes he could gulp down before to sedate himself before Kayleigh opens her f—ing mouth again,” said Bee, to the appreciative crowd that did include some CNN representatives.

My only quibble with the special is that there were so many pre-recorded video segments it didn’t leave much room for Bee live on stage firing off astute observations and sharp one-liners. She’s an incredibly talented comedian, often delivering three more zingers as the audience gets around to laughing at the first one, so it would have been fun to see Bee more in what is undoubtedly her element. But I understand the desire to want the special to keep changing gears — plus, Bee’s “Man in the High Castle” parody that closed the show was nothing short of genius.

Featuring the man, the myth, the legend George Takei handing the host a film called “The Bee Lies Heavy,” the segment imagined a world where Hillary Clinton won the election, “the Patriots lost the Super Bowl, “Lemonade” won Album of the Year and every print of “La La Land” spontaneously combusted,” and featured Bee’s imagined opening monologue for Clinton’s first WHCD.

There were plenty of zingers leveled at President Clinton (and first gentleman Bill), but Bee ended the jokes with a message that she reportedly couldn’t deliver at dress rehearsal without getting a little choked up. While she held it together here for the actual show, it was still a very heartfelt (and a little sad) way to close out the show.

“In conclusion, Madam President, I want to say thank you,” said Bee. “You may have your faults, but because of you, I can tell my daughters that they can do anything and that sexism won’t hold them back. The world will not magnify their faults and ignore their virtues because of their gender. That time has truly passed. No hard feelings, men. If there’s one message that echoes through this dinner, let it be that men’s rights are human rights and human rights are men’s rights.”

If the trend continues of Trump boycotting the White House Correspondents’ Dinner for however long he’s in the White House, it wouldn’t be the worst thing if Bee made this alternative event an annual tradition.

OH BUT WAIT DOES ANYONE EVER THINK ABOUT THE FACT THAT JARVIS PROBABLY VIDEO TAPES THE MAJORITY OF WHAT GOES ON IN THE TOWER????

Like, okay, just imagine, him opening up a vine account, and like, he just posts the stupid shit the Avengers do, like Clint and Tony drunkenly crying on each other at three am while eating donuts, or that one time Bruce literally fell asleep in his food, or Phil getting angry because people keep letting the plants in the greenhouse die and I have worked in an office for my entire adult life and I have never let a plant die as fast as they do when one is near Thor!

And it’s just a bunch of bullshit, like Clint and Sam arguing over who’s the best birb ever, and people making spider jokes at Nat and Peter, or the Hulk saying dumb shit like a three year old, or occasionally wise things.

Like, Jarvis is literally an artificial intelligence and he’s pretty much got the most popular vine account ever, and if asked, he will happily tell you that’s his greatest achievement, and I just love the idea of Jarvis recording the Avengers doing dumb shit together.

“So… you like guys?” Dean asked. “As in boys?”

Sam was sitting on a chair, his hands were sweaty and shaky as he told Dean his secret. He never told anyone before, but he wanted to tell Dean. He deserved to know.

“Y-Yeah.”

Dean nodded, absentmindedly. “Okay. Umm… I’m going to go get a drink. See you in a few hours,” with that being said, Dean paced out of the room. Sam was heartbroken and devastated that Dean just left him hanging.

Sam’s eyes glistened with tears and his lips quivered. He ruined everything. How could he be so stupid? Dean would never be okay with any of this. Maybe Sam was a freak.

Two hours later, Dean returned, holding a bag in his hands. When Sam cocked his head towards Dean, he noticed that his brother’s face was bright red. Did he drink a lot?

“Sammy?” No. Dean’s voice sounded normal.

“What?” Sam said in a low voice, hurt underneath his tone.

“I, uh, got you something.” Dean scratched the back of his ear as he held the bag to Sam. “Don’t say I don’t love you enough.”

Sam frowned, confused for a moment; wasn’t Dean mad at him? Nevertheless, Sam took out whatever was in the bag— Holy shit. “Did you—” With widen eyes, Sam gazed at the magazines that Dean got him. “—get me porn?”

The front cover was a dude barely wearing any clothing, in fact, he had a boner.

“Yes.” Dean cleared his throat. “I’ve seen things that can’t be unseen. I also got you a video tape so you can learn how to have safe sex between guys.”

“Dean,” Sam’s voice wavered, too much emotions washing over him. Dean cared and still loved him. “Thank you— I thought you hated me.”

“You thought wrong, Sammy. Now, let’s never speak of this again. Go read that if you want.” Dean shooed him away. “I’m just… going to watch TV.” When Sam left to his room, Dean pulled out a secret magazine he had hidden in his leather jacket.

“Now I can see why Sam likes guys,” Dean said with a smirk, flipping through the first page.

my bf and I tried shower sex for the first time. pretty nice, but he lives with his sister and she banged on the door to tell us to keep it down. (we weren't even being that loud) Once we were back in his bedroom we began to make our first sex tape ever. It was ok except for the fact that like 2 minutes in, while his dick is halfway down my throat and his face is buried in my pussy, she banged on his door to complain about the water we left on the floor in the bathroom. and it's in the video

17) Do They Watch Porn Together?


Not usually- but there was actually a very interesting incident surrounding that very subject. 

You see, they may or may not like to take private videos of themselves for later use and said videos may or may not all be stored on Chloe’s phone. Which was stolen one morning from her table in a coffee shop downtown. 

Lucifer wasn’t particularly concerned until Chloe reminded him that those videos getting out could potentially damage her career. 

Cue Lucifer the bloodhound.

When they finally tracked the phone down they both agreed that putting the videos elsewhere was an excellent idea. Chloe suggested a homemade DVD (to be securely stored in Lucifer’s apartment for their eyes only) and so this led to the creation of the Lucifer and Chloe Sex Tape Vol. 1, as Lucifer gleefully dubbed it.

The fact that it’s over two hours long and features debauchery that makes Chloe’s face bright red when she thinks about it, does little to deter Lucifer from putting it on the widescreen TV in his bedroom every chance he gets.

He particularly likes the first hour- content to watch it while he’s on the edge of the bed and Chloe is in his lap. There’s something undeniably arousing about watching themselves have sex while also having sex at the same time.

Chloe is particularly fond of the video she took of him going down on her. 

Half the time sure, it’s just of the top of his head while her free hand is shoved into his hair. But there’s a point that he looks up at her, into the camera and the sinful smile he gives while he runs his tongue over her clit has pushed her over the edge several times.

Lucifer has a secret favourite though.

At the end of the tape- which they often watch while completely shagged out in a tangle of limbs- is one that Chloe took of them during another afterglow as such. 

She’s holding her phone above them- selfie style- and chatting away. 

Her hair is spread out like a damn halo and they’re both sweaty and exhausted looking (Lucifer can even remember the day and just what they got up to to end up looking like that) and she’s saying something about a three month anniversary.

‘“Whoo! Three months into dating the Devil and I don’t think I’m going to survive much longer. Sexed to death!’ She laughs and from beside her, he chuckles, eyes on the side of her face.

“You love it.”

Then the magical moment that’s caught on video forever. The one that makes his heart beat faster every time he watches it. The one he’s so glad they filmed and saved. The one he could watch on repeat for the rest of his life.

I love you, you dork.”

She then kisses him and turns back to the camera to say something else. It wasn’t the first time she’d said it but it didn’t matter. The way his eyes soften, the smile on his face. Lucifer thinks that it’s the first time he’s ever looked like he was actually happy and not putting on a show.

So he’ll say that his favourite moment is when she’s giving him a blowjob or when he has her bent over the bed.

Chloe just smiles.

She knows differently.

On Jason Stockley’s Acquittal

Here are a couple couple modest observations I made regarding the recent acquittal of white police officer killing a black man in St. Louis after reading the judge’s opinion:

TL;DR: Stockely could have easily been convicted of murder.

1) Jason Stockley probably shouldn’t have been an officer to begin with.

Stockley carried an AK-47 in violation of department policy, and knew it was violation of policy. He kept the weapon as a “deterrant” to those who might do him harm while on duty, but of course he was already provided a weapon. If someone is going to be so scared of their duty that they’ll violate policy, they shouldn’t put on the badge.

2) Anthony Smith posed a real threat to others.

When Smith was approached by Stockley and Bianchi, Stockley’s partner, Smith drove into Stockley’s police car, another vehicle, and sped off at speeds close to 90 mph. Bianchi says that he saw a gun at the time Smith drove off. In those circumstances, Stockley’s decision to prepare for lethal force is justified by established criminal procedure and civil rights law, but…

3) That being said, Stockley committed first degree murder.

State law provided that first degree murder had been committed when a person i) knowingly causes the death of another after ii) deliberation on the matter. Deliberation, being a period of cool reflection no matter how instantaneous. Once the police chase began Stockley is heard on tape saying “we’re killing this motherfucker, don’t you know.” Stockley had reflected after Smith drove off, and decided then and there that there would not be a peaceful solution to this encounter. This was not just an officer neutralizing a threat; Stockley decided Smith had to die and acted accordingly.

4) Stockley’s self-defense argument is bogus.

Stockley justifies shooting Smith five times on his subjectively reasonable view that Smith had a gun. A gun was found in Smith’s car, but it had no traces of Smith’s DNA. It seems abnormal for someone to own a gun, but leave absolutely no trace. The court opinion also provides no account for who owns the gun or registration, but notes that Stockley’s DNA was on the retrieved gun.

Stockley’s defense is that he commanded Smith to open the car door once the vehicle had been stopped, and then fired once Smith didn’t comply but instead reached for his gun. The defense focused on one of Smith’s bullet wounds being on his left side, and hence consistent with Smith reaching for a gun, but that’s also consistent with Smith merely sitting in the driver’s seat. Furthermore, the stop, commands, and shots all occurred within a mere 15 seconds! Smith’s car was stopped by Bianchi ramming into it with a police cruiser so forcefully that the airbags deployed. That is to say, Stockely expects us to believe that Smith had been hit on the highway, recovered from the shock, and was cognizant enough to obey Stockley’s commands from an armed officer all within a ¼ minute?

5) The judge was admittedly biased, and selectively weighed certain factors more than others.

Judge Wilson did believe Stockley though, but possibly for prejudicial reasons. The Judge makes great weight of the fact that no officers testified to Stockley planting a gun in Smith’s car, but of course this ignores the cultural problems of cover ups that police departments have had. Judge Wilson also recounts events from the video tapes as if he could see everything perfectly (”there was no bulge in any pocket indicating a gun within the pocket”), but cell phone and dash cam footage is far from pristine. Rather hypocritically, the Judge uses Bianchi’s judgment of seeing a gun to justify Stockely’s reaction, but ignore’s Bianchi’s perception that Smith wasn’t a threat.

Finally, the Judge finalizes his opinion with “The Court observes, based on its nearly thirty years on the bench, that an urban heroin dealer not in possession of a firearm would be an anomaly” to argue that Smith must have had a gun. Judges may make basic judicial observations based on commonplace knowledge, but to speculate that Smith must have had a gun because he was an “urban” (Read black?) drug dealer is pure prejudice and assumption. This admission is particularly dreadful given Judge Wilson speaks against speculation not one paragraph later.

Did Ali and Ian make a sex tape?

I know, Ali made an extra point to assure everyone that she had sex with neither Ian or Ezra. But let’s be honest… That room kind of says differently.

Clearly, this bed has been tainted. Maybe they just slept in it, or maybe they made out… But in a reality check, it’s unlikely that scuzzy Ian would pay for a hotel room and not expect something from Ali. He takes her somewhere on the dl for brunch and a round of golf?

There’s a camera clearly pointed at that bed. And their is some footage, most likely taken just a bit before Melissa shows up, that Ali decides to delete. So, we’ve got Ali, Ian, a seemingly well used bed, and a camera pointed at that bed. And a video that was obviously taken, of said bed.

So there’s 1 of 2 possibilities… They had soooome kind of sexual play, and Ian and/or Ali filmed it. Which would still actually result in legal trouble, contrary to what Ian said later in the episode.

OR… That video was something else entirely. Which may in fact be more important than proof of Ian bedding an underage girl. But what could it have been? Maybe having Ian confirm that they didn’t really do anything, was a way of also redirecting us back to that video camera then.

Maybe the bed is just messed up because housekeeping didn’t come yet, and he slept in it. Alone. Maybe Ian and Ali just had a chat on camera. Maybe there’s something on that tape from earlier in the day, or yesterday… The important question is why would Ali delete it? I can see why she would delete a sex tape. She wouldn’t want Ian sharing that with his buddies, perhaps. She would have to have some idea what footage was on there to know what she was deleting and why.

Did she ever actually delete it, or is this just another Ali version of the truth? Will they ever answer these kinds of questions, or are the writers just trying to break my spirit by throwing these things around?

AN: I absolutely love the ‘wedding pact’ trope, especially when they inadvertently fall for each other on the way there. So here’s my take on that. :) thatweirdparamedicstudent here ya go!


the nearness of you

[AO3]

To be fair, Clarke has just come from a really bad break up. And it must be written somewhere that the severity of the break up is directly proportionate to the amount of alcohol to be consumed (already consumed, her throbbing head reminds her). The heaviness in her limbs must be accounted to that, and also the dead prickling of her legs, and the warm hard body curled around her from behind, too, because –

Wait. What?

Her sharp intake of breath has the warm, hard body tensing behind her (she’s definitely ignoring the hardness that’s pressing against her ass because that is not the point here), the heaviness in her arms now known as another pair that’s decidedly not hers tightening as if by habitual impulse. She’ll admit, maybe never, that the embrace feels strangely welcome and familiar and warm and comfortable –

“Holy shit, that’s a lot of wine,” a voice rumbles on her back, the tremors of his chest sending an involuntary shiver down her back for absolutely no reason at all. Shut up.

what do you think about dan's relationship with his family? Or even, how do you think they feel about dnp being together? Because we always see dan hanging out/visiting/go on vacation with the lesters but we never see/know about phil being with the howells (except i think one time he visited dan's grandparents, I'm not sure)

I think it’s dangerous to make assumptions based on information we are exposed to without keeping in mind that they choose to withhold information from us for any number of reasons. 

Dan has expressed plenty of issues with his parents, so obviously things aren’t entirely smooth sailing there. He has no problem announcing to the entire internet that he feels like his parents are disappointed he didn’t finish law school, that they aren’t interested in/don’t respect what he does as a career, and similar disdainful remarks. 

But we also know that Dan and his family value privacy, based on his reaction to fans asking about and attempting to contact his brother. He’s never stated his parents names, when he is home if he posts pictures then he only posts them of himself. We saw them briefly in his childhood tapes reaction video but he didn’t center it around his parents at all. We as an audience, if going based strictly on what Dan has divulged, should not know their names, or anything about them. The fact that he shields their identities tells me that he might also be prone to shielding his time with them. Example: he told us in one of his more recent liveshows he’d met up with his mother. That’s the first time he ever casually mentioned something like that, but I sincerely doubt it’s the first time it happened. We also know from a liveshow years back that Phil did go home with Dan for Dan’s mother’s birthday one year, but that’s not something they shared on social media. We also know that when Dan’s mother sent them a Christmas card in 2014 it actually contained a (good natured) joke about Phil being from the north. 

So my opinion? Dan’s family doesn’t have any issue with Phil, but Dan probably has his own issues with his family and that layered with the fact that Dan’s family has more of a desire for privacy from Phil’s means that there’s not likely one simple explanation as to why we see Dan with Phil’s family and not vice versa, just a number of contributing factors.

For the prompt and ROBRON can you do 25?

25: “It may not be much, but it’s yours.”

It was in a box that Diane gave to Aaron in passing, once him and Robert had officially moved in. She said something about it being full of Robert’s old things, and when he found it to be covered in some kind of superhero outfit that Aaron still knows Robert adores, he realises it was all Robert’s things from when he was just a kid.

Robert found it. Hidden at the very bottom, covered by video tapes and action figures. (Aaron would call them dolls and take the absolute piss out of Robert, but Robert would still maintain the fact that they are manly). He hadn’t seen it in years, not since the early 2000’s, not since just after his mum had died. Jack could barely wear it then, instead just leaving it in a drawer in his bedroom until it became something that Victoria wanted to play with after she found it.

He still remembers the day Sarah bought the ring. It had been leading up to anniversary, Robert’s not sure what one, but he can only assume it was a wedding one. Sarah had taken him into Hotten, he’d been off feeling sick, and Victoria was only a few months old. Jack was working, selling sheep or something, and Sarah had managed to save up enough money to surprise Jack.

The ring was nothing special. Just a plain band, dark silver, with patches of brown that had managed to collect on it over time. But Robert had nothing from his parents. Andy and Victoria had inherited everything, and although he always pretended that it didn’t hurt him, it really did. He spent years, trying to be the child that Jack wanted, but he had that in both Andy and Victoria. He lost his birthmother when he was a baby, he didn’t remember a thing about her, and he spent the best part of his childhood trying to make up for not being Sarah’s biological child.

“Here, I want you to have this.” Robert said, breathing in through his nose deeply.

They’d been watching a film, one that Liv wanted to watch for ages, but she was out with friends and they finally had a chance to watch it without her. It had been three days since Robert had found the ring, and in that time, he’d spent every moment wanting to give it to Aaron.

“What is it?” Aaron asked, taking the metal from Robert’s fingers. “Mate, have you forgotten that we’re already married?”

“No I haven’t forgotten, mate. It’s a ring. It was in the box Diane gave you.” Robert explained. “Mum bought it- for Dad.”

Aaron rolled it into his fingers, lifting it up to inspect it closely. “I can’t have this, Rob. You said yourself you have nothing to remember your parents by.”

“I want you to have it.” Robert said, shrugging his shoulders. “It may not be much, but it’s yours. Mum bought it for Dad because she loved him. I want you to have it because I love you.”

“I love you too.” Aaron croaked out, throat dry and eyes welling up. He slid it onto his ring finger, waiting for it to touch his wedding ring, and letting out a sigh of relief when it seemed to fit decently. “Perfect.”

“Better than what your wedding ring did when I first bought it, I’m surprised you didn’t lose it, the amount it kept sliding to your knuckle.” Robert joked, pulling his husband in for a kiss.
