the lost boys 4

Horror is gay now

Babadook? Gay. Samara? A lesbian. Kayako? Bisexual trans girl. The Bye Bye man? Bi. Freddy Krueger? Pansexual. Jason voorhees? Trans boy. The entire fucking gang from The Lost Boys? Hunnie IT was like 4 boys and one girl lol it was gay as hell. The Blair witch? Lesbean. Pennywise? Gay. Pinhead? Nonbinary + bisexual. In fact anything that Clive barker, a gay man, makes is inherently gay. Don’t get me started on the fur coat wearing Candyman like we all know,

Sometimes it’s hard to concentrate these days. I was thinking about the history of this building and the Bowie history. So I started to think about that and my mind began to wander. It’s not a good…
So I haven’t really been talking about some things and I kind of… now it feels like it’s conspicuous because I lost a really close friend of mine, somebody who…(applause)

I’ll say this too, I grew up as 4 boys, 4 brothers and I lost my brother 2 years ago tragically like that in an accident and after that and losing a few other people, I’m not good at it, meaning I’m not…I have not been willing to accept the reality and that’s just how I’m dealing with it (applause starts)

No, no, no, no.

So I want to be there for the family, be there for the community, be there for my brothers in my band, certainly the brothers in his band. But these things will take time but my friend is going to be gone forever and I will just have to…

These things take time and I just want to send this out to everyone who was affected by it and they all back home and here appreciate it so deeply the support and the good thoughts of a man who was a … you know he wasn’t just a friend he was someone I looked up to like my older brother.

About two days after the news, I think it was the second night we were sleeping in this little cabin near the water, a place he would’ve loved. And all these memories started coming in about 1:30am like woke me up. Like big memories, memories I would think about all the time. Like the memories were big muscles.

And then I couldn’t stop the memories. And trying to sleep it was like if the neighbours had the music playing and you couldn’t stop it. But then it was fine because then it got into little memories. It just kept going and going and going. And I realised how lucky I was to have hours worth of…you know if each of these memories was quick and I had hours of them. How fortunate was I?! And I didn’t want to be sad, wanted to be grateful not sad. I’m still thinking about those memories and I will live with those memories in my heart and I will…love him forever.

Cameron’s Pilgrim

Spoiler warning S4 Halt and Catch Fire, until 4X05

I’ve read recaps and comments about Cameron’s choices , words and actions, and I would like to contrast it with my understanding of what 4x05 “Nowhere Man” revealed.

The first half of S4 we are kept much in the dark about what’s going on with Cameron. We just mostly know how it appears to Joe, Bos and Gordon. Joe thinks she’s searching for something out there, to reinvent herself. Gordon - the outdoor man who loves camping - calls it 2 giants living on a timble. Bos jokes about space bikes. Nobody takes it seriously, just like Donna didn’t take Cam seriously and thought of her as an impulsive child in S3, but it turned out that junior had married, bought a house and had worked on a better solution than credit cards even.  And the reveal about Cam’s game Pilgrim in 4x05 suggests that Cam knows why she bought the land, the airstream and why she wants Joe to make love to her there. Cameron is the sole person who is not “searching”. Instead, she wants her loved ones and especially Joe to find and understand her. If Joe was the mystery man throughout the seasons, Cameron was the mystery woman.

In a sea of loss, Bashar Abdul Jabar is just one among many.

The small man in a shirt several sizes too big is standing in the parking lot of the Iraqi civil defense forces base in Mosul, hoping to retrieve the body of his son. To his right is a young man whose entire family — 11 people — was killed. To his left, a man who lost 18 relatives.

Nearby, a 4-year-old boy who lost his mother and three brothers clings silently to his father’s leg.

Abdul Jabar, a father of five, lost his son Ahmed. He was 15. When their house collapsed around them during fighting in June between Iraqi troops and ISIS, Ahmed was trapped. The rest of the family members were able to extricate themselves. Abdul Jabar couldn’t save Ahmed and had to leave him behind, while he was still alive under the rubble.

He and the other men gathered a few weeks ago at Mosul’s civil defense forces base to try to recover the bodies of relatives killed during the battle for Mosul, which ended with the city’s recapture from ISIS in July.

Sockathan trash
  • Sock likes to steal and wear Jonathan's hoodie. Little known fact, Jonathan, likes to steal and wear Sock's scarf.
  • Jonathan loves to pretend he forgets a lot of things because he wants Sock to guess because he thinks it's cute. Sock however, finds this extremely annoying because he knows that Jonathan knows, and is just being stupid.
  • As much as Jonathan likes to stay as apathetic as humanly possible, he just can't keep it up around Sock. Even a glance from the demon can make him smile. Sock loves this, and does as many things as possible to keep him smiling, or to get a laugh out of him.
  • Sock and Jonathan's favorite sounds are each other's laughs. Sock, because he loves to see Jonathan laugh, and loves his laugh, and Jonathan, because he loves how cute Sock's giggles are.
  • Sock has WAY more than one skirt. Jonathan secretly likes all of them on Sock, even though he would never admit it.
  • Jonathan's hobbies are listening to music, playing acoustic guitar, and is actually a huge fantasy bookworm.
  • Dragons are Jonathans favorite type of fantasy creature, and also his favorite pokemon type.
  • Jonathan doesn't know much about pokemon, but is learning more from Sock, who is an avid pokemon fangirl.
  • Sock's favorite song is Space Jam.
  • Sock once decorated his christmas tree with the intestines of a rabbit.Never again had his parents let him decorate the tree by himself.
  • Jonathan tried out for the football team once because his dad played football before, and his friend Zack was on the team. He quit 5 minutes in because the coach said the warm up was "just getting started".
  • Before they were dating, Sock would bug the shit out of Jonathan for having a crush on Lil. Now Jonathan hardly thinks about her at all.
  • Sock loves to take little things he knows Jonathan needs and put them in different spots in his room, just to make the mornings before school a little bit more difficult.
  • Jonathan is a borderline coffeeholic, while Sock can't stand the stuff.
  • Jonathan's favorite kind of sandwich is a roast beef sandwich with lettuce and mayo. "Plain, simple, and delicious." As he describes it.
  • Jonathan is surprisingly good with younger kids, despite his edgy personality.
  • The first time Sock witnessed Jonathan and a child interacting was when a little boy about 4 years old was lost at the high school. Jonathan saw him wandering around and asked him if he was looking for someone. The boy said he was looking for his sister, and Jonathan offered to help find her. He held the boys hand and took him around the school looking for her. By the time they found her, the boy was asleep, piggybacking on Jonathan's back. Sock's heart almost exploded from how adorable witnessing this was.
  • ((Hoowah it is 12: 23 AM and im not focused enough to write down more. These were fun, and I might make more if requested :00
  • I know not all of these are sockathan but whatever.
  • Sock and Jonathan are from Welcome to Hell which belongs to Erica Wester etc.))

Lost (Reddie) (4/8)

Summary : Richie Tozier is struggling with something. Something he’d never thought he’d have to struggle with. Sure, his parents can be pretty shitty, but he never thought it would come to this. It’s now been about a month since Richie has been kicked out of his house. He has made do with sleeping in his truck, and passing out on nights that all the losers are together, but things are becoming more dire. With what was left of his money stash gone, Richie is forced to make a living by prostitution. There’s also something going on with Eddie. Eddie Kaspbrak, mommy’s boy and pill expert has been put on a new pill. This time, it was of his own doing, and not his mothers. What it’s for, no one knows.

Pairings : Eventual Reddie with hints of Stenbrough and mentions of Bikeverly (Ben/Mike/Bev)

Warnings : Nothing, really.

AN : This one is also shorter than usual. The next arc is very sad and pretty much I couldn’t ruin the lil Reddie tidbits here. Keep in mind that all of the characters are 18/19 at this time, and in their senior year of high school. The characters in no way have any relation to the child actors that have portrayed them. IT does not belong to me, however if it had I would’ve changed a lot of things in the book.

OH SHIT I FORGOT! This chapter is dedicated to @finn-got-tall for the beautiful aesthetic they made!

As much as I’d like to say I’ve been strong about how this went down and I’ll be able to love and support the boys on the unit.. Im a big sobbing mess right now. I knew this was coming but I didnt think I’d wake up this morning to losing 4 of my boys when we’d lost so many already. I have no idea how I’m going to feel… I didnt like the idea of the unit, but if it helps them I’ll support it… anything for my boys.

I cant even think that far ahead right now.. rn I’m listening to their music and crying uncontrollably. I just ugh sorry this is a rambled messy post.. I just didnt expect it so soon…

I hope my love Hansol and Sehyuk come from the army safely and that Nakta’s DJ career becomes successful. And I hope Sanggyun doesnt forget where he came from and finds his success even after JBJ
