All you Jonsa-freaks are fucking delusional. Its a crackship. Its not going to happen. Sansa is Jons sister, nothing more. Jonerys is canon. Get over it!
I usually don’t react to asks like this, but this permanent missuse of the term “crack-ship” is really bothering me, so I want to make some things clear concering fandom-shipping-lingo:
The terms “crack-ship” and “non-canon ship” are not and never have been synonymous, nor 100% interchangeable.
A “crack-ship” is something that has absolutely no possibility of ever happening in canon. It’s something crazy, out-of-place or unlikely moving towards impossible. It’s shipping two characters who’ve never interacted in canon and never will, are completely incompatible with each other, or have never showed any sign of any kind of romantic potential. It’s a ship with absolutely zero back-up in the narrative.
A “non-canon ship” on the other hand, simply is something that isn’t canon. That’s literally the only requirement. Fiction thrives on love-triangles, “will they wont they?”, “whom will she/he choose?” or presenting a main-character with a variety of (potential) love interests over the story. Being “non-canon” doesn’t necessary make something “crack”. If you can find some sort of textual evidence for romantic potential, that isn’t a crackship. Even if it isn’t canon.
Here’s a list GoT-crackships:
Davos x Jon (never showed interest in each other, incompatible when it comes to sexual orientation and age. But I’ve read things, anon. I’ve read things I will never forget) Brienne x Sandor (like … to each their own. Why the hell not?) Missandei x Jorah (she has a boyfriend, he’s obsessed with Khaleesi. Never showed any interest. Like … naahhh ) Jorah x Sam (Peel of my skin and I’ll love you) Lyanna x Stannis (I read a fun little ficlet about them recently.) Robb x Margarey (Not all “crack-ships” are super duper weird. This is a pretty cute one, that I really like. But never interacted with each other, never will.) Robb x Daenerys (This is what canon-divergence was made for, if you ask me.) Arya x Joffrey (I have actually read fanfiction in which Joffrey wasn’t bat-shit crazy cruel, but only a pretty arrogant, entitled jerk. Arya was the one engaged to him and it was a really interesting read.) Tyrion x Cersei (the internet is a weird, dark place with weird, dark ideas.)
My two personal Jon-crackships: Jon x Tormund (because wouldn’t it be cute ???) Jon x Missandei (because wouldn’t it be amazingly cute ???)
The one I have for Daenerys: Tormund x Daenerys (First: Tormund is so amazing, everyone would be happy to have him. I ship him with everyone. Second: Mother of Dragons x Warrior-women-loving-wildling? Sign me the fuck up.)
And the one I have for Sansa: Sansa x Podrick (he’s such an obvious bottom, sorry not sorry. Love this in fanfiction. It’s adorable.)
Here’s a list of GOT-non-canon-ships, that don’t deserve the title “crack-ship” IMO:
Jon x Daenerys(no anon, they aren’t canon yet. Can you look into the future? Leaks don’t count. Canon counts.) Jon x Sansa(if you don’t believe there’s enough textual evidence to back them, you are the delusional one. You don’t have to ship it, you don’t have to like it, you don’t have to believe it’s going to happen. But acting like other people are delusional for thinking they have serious canon potential simply shows that you feel threatened by them. There, I said it.) Jon x Arya(grrm intended them to end up together. I don’t think it’s very likely to become canon, but it isn’t a crack-ship either. The creator himself entertained the possibility once.)
Sansa x Petyr (No, not even being “problematic” as hell makes a ship “crack”. This will never become canon, but I can accept that people like to take the underlying dynamics and change the narrative in fanon. That’s what fanfiction is for. You can take two characters, eliminate the canon-things you don’t like and add things to make your imagination come to life. This might be a bit on the verge to crack, but they definetly have enough canon-interaction to earn a place in this list.) Sansa x Tyrion(I don’t consider them canon. Probably not going to happen. A little problematic as well, but see the commentary above) Sansa x Sandor(similar to sansa x tyrion in my book. More likley than it, probably, since Sansa acknowledges some sort of romantic feelings as well. Liked the fanon-version - sorry not really in canon - for a long time. Still do.) Sansa x Theon (canon-interaction, I can totally see where people are coming from. Nothing is going to happen with like 99,9999% certainty, but I don’t think the term “crackship” is a 100% fair.)
Jaime x Brienne (do I really have anything to add to this ? It’s an absolute fan-favourite. You don’t have to be a fan, but canon acknowledges this having some kind of potential) Brienne x Tormund(The show is so obviously playing with this => not gonna actually happen - probably, but canon wants us to think about it. So, not really a “crack-ship”.)
Arya x Gendry (has a pretty good chance at being canon ~somehow~, at least on the show. But still isn’t canon yet.)
Bran x Meera (same as Arya x Gendry)
Daenerys x Tyrion (he’s obviously in love with her. Look at all the hearteyes.) Daenerys x Jorah (bookverse a little to creepy for my taste, but as I said: To each their own. not so creepy on the show. Still not a fan. Still not really “crack”)
I could go on, but I really hope you get my point by now. Not everyone will agree with this lists. There will probably be a lot of shippers who themselves say “naah. That’s my crackship”. Fine, you can define your own opinion however you like. But don’t insult other people who think it isn’t.
I don’t really care too much about canon, a lot of my all-time otps and ships never became canon(Zutara, Kakasaku, Narusaku, Ichiruki, …). Never stopped me from shipping them. Of course I want to see my ships become canon, but it isn’t a necessity. I’m rooting for Jonsa to happen as long as it’s possible, because I see a lot of foreshadowing for them in both the books and the show. If I’m wrong? I will be disappointed, but okay. Happened before. I’ve learned to be okay with that.
But what I’m not okay with is being called stupid or delusional for interpreting canon-material differently. For seeing potential that IS THERE. I know what a “crack-ship” is anon, and Jonsa simply isn’t one. Wether they become canon or not.
I was about 5 when I had already realised that I was never
going to marry a man, and wanted a wife instead. This was the mid-80s. There
was nothing on television that adequately reflected how I saw my future. Then in
1984, when I was 7, along came a tv show called Kate & Allie, it featured
two College friends who had drifted apart and re-connected after their
divorces. They lived together with their three children in a New York City
apartment. Kate was the free spirited ex-hippie
type, whilst Allie was the more straitlaced pearls and proper decorum type.
Together they made an opposites attract kind of couple.
It was the only show at the time that even vaguely reflected
the life I wanted. It was no surprise that the show built up a lesbian
following, a sit-com with two attractive, competent, hilarious female leads,
bringing up three children together.
I was devoted.
Until they seemed to get wind of how this was coming across
to the audience, what followed was one of the most condescending 25 minutes of
television I have ever watched.
They “addressed” the issue of any implied lesbianism by
airing an episode that featured the protagonist’s landlady, a lesbian, saying
that they would have to pay more rent as they were two families living in a one
family apartment, unless they were actually one family, i.e. Kate & Allie
were lesbians. What followed was a convoluted and patronising episode that
concluded with the pair schooling their lesbian landlady on what constituted a
I never watched another episode. Even at that age I understood the message
they were sending me.
Cagney & Lacey was another favourite amongst lesbians,
two badass women, who could hold their own in a macho environment that is the
epitome of old school boy’s club. They were intelligent, tough, and still
empathetic. They were the kind of women
I wanted to see around me.
But yet again, as the show carried on, it was deeply
imparted to the audience how much Christine Cagney loved sex with men, and
hardly an episode went by where there wasn’t a scene of Mary Beth and Harv
kissing and more.
It was to remind us, these women might be playing in a man’s
world, but they are still all about the dick.
Lucy Lawless, the incredible Xena: Warrior Princess, was
very aware of the huge lesbian fanbase that the show had, in part due to the
extensive volumes of fanfiction written about Xena and her bard sidekick
Gabrielle. Lucy and co-star Renee O’Connor were deeply respectful of their
fans, and giving them as much as they could with their on-screen interactions
within the framework of the scripts. It was only as the show was ending that
they were told that the characters were each other’s true loves. A point they
addressed by saying that had they known earlier, they would have played the
parts more explicitly loving, and would have made sure it had been more
explicit to fans earlier in the show’s six year run. Their disappointment at
not having known sooner was palpable and displayed a deep respect that they had
for their LGBT audience.
Fast forward a few years, and in the post Beth Jordache era,
we had Bad Girls, a UK women’s prison drama that featured straight Prison
Governor, Helen Stewart, fall in love with one of her prisoners, Nikki Wade, it
was a sweet story, and one of the few with a relatively decent ending. The
actresses displayed grace and empathy when dealing with their fans, even
appearing at a London pub after a Leicester Square movie premiere to sign
autographs for a pub full of lesbian fans. I saw that it was possible for fans
to be embraced and treasured, which to me made me feel like we had turned a
corner from being scorned, ridiculed and patronised. We even had our own tv
show, The L Word, which as flawed as it is, seemed like a massive step to media
Post L Word, it is almost like we are being punished, almost
every lesbian character on tv seems to either die or have an affair with a
The past few years, scrolling through my tumblr feed is like
a journey in joy and heartbreak. Watching the younger generations get excited
over wlw characters, only to have to mourn the loss of them a short time later.
I never watch a tv series when it comes out now. I wait.
I wait to see where the arc is going. I wait to see how we
are going to be treated by the cast and studio who make it. I have been burned
a few too many times in the past, and only a couple of those many times have
been recounted here.
These shows taught me from a very young age to pick and
choose carefully what I watched, and that I could not rely on the mainstream
media to cater to my needs. This is
where fanfiction, fanart and fantasy come in. We learned how to take the
characters and make our own stories with them, the myriad websites dedicated to
fanfiction/art are a testament to that, and to our resourcefulness as viewers.
After all, amazing fanfiction is still being written about Seven of Nine and
Captain Janeway, and Olivia Benson and Alex Cabot (to name just two ships),
characters who haven’t shared screen time in many, many years. Our love for
these characters and their chemistry is enduring.
What we deserve though, are fully realised relationships
between characters on screen, not scraps, not looking for every nuance in interaction.
We can still do it, we are very good at it, we have had decades of practice
after all. It is probably something we will always do, it is almost as though
it is in our genes to be able to see the unspoken tensions and subtleties.
But it is so nice to have shows where this isn’t necessary,
where you can just relax and watch the relationship unfold, without having to
work to find those precious moments.
This was why I have loved watching the gifs and screencaps
of shows like Carmilla, Wynonna Earp, Grey’s Anatomy and Supergirl cross my
Knowing that there are generations younger than me who haven’t
had to be so patronised and condescended to by the media, but who are actually
being catered to.
To see Chyler Leigh be so enthusiastic in her representation
of Alex Danvers, and her deeply moving responses to stories of the fans. It
made my heart soar to see this. So I thought I would be safe with Supergirl, I
watched the first season and was drawn in, I was waiting eagerly to buy the
second season on DVD when I saw the footage from SDCC 2017.
To some, I know it is easy to brush aside, to wait for it
all to blow over. They don’t have the history of being invalidated and
To me, what I was watching, was deliberate, and unnecessary
and cruel. It reminded me of the popular kids at school bullying those who are
already society’s outcasts and unwanted.
To say you are an ally and trot out your ally credentials,
is meaningless if your behaviour speaks otherwise. To mention when you are
apologising for your bad behaviour, how badly you are being treated and how
unfair it is, is ridiculous. Take responsibility.
To me, the whole spectacle was sad and left me hurting for
the younger viewers who were experiencing the same things I experienced so long
ago, knowing that even if you find somewhere you think you belong, there will
always be those who don’t want you there, who will make that space unsafe for
you. There is a reason why the concept of safe spaces is so large in the LGBT
community, it is because we don’t have many.
What I won’t do is put my time and money into a show that
devalues me, or who employs people who do. (To be clear, I am not insisting
that others do not watch the show, you do you, boo boo).
I was heartened by the reactions displayed by Katie McGrath
and Odette Annable at SDCC, who along with Chyler Leigh and Floriana Lima have
been amazing ambassadors for their characters (Odette excepting as we have not
seen her screen time, but her displays of solidarity with Katie were invaluable
as an LGBT viewer), and make me long for a spin off with these four cast
The show has been tainted for me, and I won’t watch it, not
when there are other shows that are not treating their LGBT characters and
viewers poorly, so Wynonna Earp and The Bold Type, here I come, please don’t
let me down.
Everything? O -O HMM okay then. I’ll take that as everything.
HERE I GO *CRACKS FINGERS*
1: Who spends almost all their money on the other?
Izuku. Definitely Izuku because he’s a cute little gentleman like that. He’s never selfish and it makes him happy to see that subtle gratitude on Katsuki’s face. But then, after his money is almost all out, Katsuki pays cause “I’M NOT A FUCKING GIRL I CAN PAY FOR MYSELF, STUPID DEKU. WHO SAID YOU NEEDED TO SPEND MONEY ON ME HUH???”
2: Who sleeps in the other’s lap?
KACCHAN *WHEEZE* He’ll sometimes force Izuku to sit down and Katsuki just dives onto that lap and hug his waist. When Katsuki falls asleep, Izuku is still and is scared to let this moment go to waste so he only gets to move when the former wakes up. Alas, giving poor Izuku pins and needles.
3: Who walks around the house half-naked and who yells at them to put on some clothes?
Half-naked? Deku. Yells? Katsuki. “Deku, I cooked breakf- HOLY FUCK PUT ON A GODDAMN SHIRT. JESUS.” “Kacchan, we’ve been going out for 3 years.” “AND?? IT’S BELOW 5 DEGREES. LEARN SOME DECENCY, SHITRAG”
4: Which one tells the other not to stay up all night and which one stays up all night anyway?
Izuku stays up all night, Katsuki has to manhandle him to the bed.
5: Which one tries to make food for the other but burns it all by accident and which one tells them that it’s okay and makes them both cookies?
Since it’s due a popular headcanon that Katsuki is a 5-star gordon ramsay-esque chef, Izuku has to try to impress Katsuki in that department. But he ends up burning whatever he cooks anyway because he keeps muttering and keeps on getting distracted. “The fuck? Smells like something’s burning” “KACCHAN NO DONT COME NEAR” “…What is this?” “…Food??” “How the hell do you burn soup, Deku”.
6: Which one reads OTP prompts and says “Oh that’s us!” and which one goes “Eh, not really”?
Izuku is the one that keeps on pointing at things that KIND of resembles them and Katsuki just shoots him down sometimes.
7: Which one constantly wears the other’s clothes?
*WHEEEEEEEZEEEEE* DEKU. Katsuki is weak to that. Especially to the infamous kare shirt.
8: Which one spends all day running errands and which one says “You remembered [thing], right?”
Katsuki does alot of errands and Izuku keeps reminding him.
9: Which one drives the car and which one gives them directions?
Katsuki drives. Izuku gives directions. They bicker like a married couple. “Kacchan, the gps says to go left” “I don’t need a machine to tell me where to go” “But Kacchan-….we’re lost…again” “Shut up” “Why don’t we just pull over and ask for directions?”
10: Which one does the posing while the other one draws?
They both suck at drawing. But Katsuki prefers to pose while Izuku draws. But hell, Katsuki can’t stay still for 5 frickin minutes and just goes “fuck this” before stomping away buck naked. But when he does get Katsuki to stay still (With a few bribes and such) he proudly shows his drawing and the former burns the paper. “Never speak of this to anyone”
11: If they were about to rob a museum, which one does backflips through lasers and which one is strolling behind with a bag of chips?
Izuku does the backflips, because he’s enthusiastic and Katsuki just follows behind.
12: Which one of your OTP overdoes it on the alcohol and which one makes the other stop drinking?
Izuku has low tolerance to alcohol and Katsuki has to stop him. But when Izuku gets absolutely shit-faced and is holding on to a bottle for dear life. KAtsuki has to literally wrestle Izuku for it but it’s hard because the little shit is using his quirk.
13: Which one likes to surprise the other with a lot of small random gifts?
Surprisingly, Katsuki. Izuku gets home and finds the gifts either on the counter, the coffee table, his study desk, or the bed. Katsuki denies that it was him.
14: Which one keeps accidentally using the other’s last name instead of their own?
They keep calling themselves by their nicknames when they’re alone. But around other people they call each other by their last names to keep it professional. Though when they get home, Izuku just likes to keep calling Katsuki by his last name to embarass him. But Katsuki at one point, gets fed up “IF YOU LIKE TO CALL ME THAT SO MUCH MAYBE YOU CAN JUST CHANGE YOURS TO BAKUGO TOO” “I will!” Both of them stare at each other for a moment in silence before walking away to different rooms, red faced and a bit…hopeful?
15: Which one screams about the spider and which one brings the spider outside?
Katsuki screams at the spider, Izuku has to calmly bring it out so the former doesn’t destroy their apartment.
16: Which one gives the other their jacket?
17: Who keeps getting threatened by the other’s overprotective older sibling?
Neither of them have siblings. But overprotective friends, Izuku has. Katsuki is constantly reminded that there is no fragile bone in Uraraka.
18: Who’s the first one to admit they have feelings for the other?
It’s Katsuki. He confesses after graduation, probably like 2 years after he apologized to Izuku in the most subtle way.
19: How good would your OTP be at parenting?
They are so-so. They’re a bit awkward at it first. They’d be screaming at eachother when their adopted child would wake them up at the middle of the night with their crying and they’re panicking over where the bottle is. At one point, when their baby cried at 2 AM, Katsuki (who has the instincts of a wild animal) blew up the wall at the front of their bed.
20: Which one types with perfect grammar and which one types using numbers as letters?
Izuku types with perfect grammar cause he’s a cute little nerd. Katsuki hates texting and chatting so he uses alot of shortcuts.
21: Who gets attacked by a bully and who protects them?
Katsuki is a bit touchy over this, since he’s basically abused Deku for half his life so he vowed to protect him. Bullies or villains? they’d get singed to death or blown up if they ever touch a single hair on Deku’s floofy hair.
22: Who makes the bad puns and who makes a pained smile every time the other makes a pun?
IZuku LOVES to make bad puns and KAtsuki just stares at him blankly, the face of neutral disappointment.
23: Who comes home from work to see that the other one bought a puppy?
Katsuki brings back a puppy and Izuku cries his eyes out because he loves dogs.
24: Which one gives the other a piggyback ride when they’re tired?
Katsuki used to give Izuku piggyback rides when they were kids because he’s “so useless and weak”. He still does but he can’t do it as long cause Izuku is mostly muscle now. So they switch sometimes.
25: Which one competes in some sort of activity and which one does the overzealous cheering?
At one time, Izuku competed at a hero’s convention and Katsuki yelled the loudest, “BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF THEM, DEKU. SHOW NO MERCY. HEY THE FUCK DID YOU SAY, BASTARD?? THAT’S MY BOYFRIEND HANDS OFF”
26: Who takes a selfie when the other one falls asleep on their shoulder?
Izuku takes alot of secret selfies of him and Katsuki. His most prized one is when Katsuki was hugging a pillow while sleeping on Izuku’s lap. Katsuki has yet to see these and Izuku has no plan to, in fear of his phone getting blown up into smithereens.
27: Which one would give the other a makeover if they asked?
Izuku is glad to experiment on Katsuki. But after a little incident that involved of switching of hair dyes and a pair of scissors in the hands of a distracted Izuku, Katsuki just goes to the barbers.
28: Which one owns a pet that the other is absolutely terrified of?
Remember that dog? Izuku loves it to death and vice versa. But the dog ,named Pochi, hates Katsuki’s guts. Katsuki returns the feeling tenfold but is afraid of it whenever it would nip his toes and he has no way to fight against it.
29: Which one holds the umbrella over both of them when it rains?
Katsuki is physically taller so he holds the umbrella, Izuku takes this as an opportunity to get close to Katsuki and cuddle up to his side. Katsuki would switch the umbrella to his other hand so he can hold his boyfriend with a one-armed hug.
30: If your OTP went on vacation, where would they go and what would they do? Who would take the pictures?
If they ever went on a vacation, they would probably go somewhere tropical with alot of mountains (cause Katsuki). They’d probs go hiking, swimming, and would take long strolls to appreciate the sights. Katsuki gets hit on a lot and Izuku would get quiet and pouty about this until they get home. Izuku takes alot of pictures. Especially the trees.
WHEW THAT WAS ALOT. But I enjoyed it O WO FUhuhuhu. Ahhh my headcanons are a bit meh and I got some of these from a few sources.
summary: Being in a class with a pack full of chewing gums has never really been a good idea, and you’ve learned that the hard way today.
pairing: Jason Todd/Reader
(based on this prompt from @otp–prompts : Person A is chewing the last piece of gum in a really good pack so person B pulls them into a kiss to low key steal it out of A’s mouth)
It’s a Thursday afternoon and you’re sitting in the back of the classroom, peacefully chewing on a gum as the teacher continues to dawdle on about her lesson—something about atoms and their structures and whatnots—when the person beside you taps you on the shoulder.
“Hey.” You recognize the person as Jason Todd, one of the most popular boys in school. He’s notorious for being a rumored gang member, although you don’t quite believe it.
He’s good-looking, and although he could be quite snarky and sarcastic at times, you know that deep down, he’s a good person, even if he’s a playboy. You know it; you’ve seen him helping a freshman once, even though he’d probably never forgive you if you so much as tell someone about it.
He’s staring at you, a bored look on his expression. “Hey,” he says once more when he thinks you haven’t heard him. He waves his hand in front of you, trying to catch your attention. “Can I have a gum?”
You immediately tear your gaze away from his face and nod your head, moving to quickly check your pockets before turning back toward him and shaking your head. “Sorry,” you say softly, careful not to be heard by the teacher. “I’m out of it already.”
“Aw, man,” Jason remarks, a disappointed frown forming on the corners of his lips. “Not even a single one?”
You shake your head once more in response, raising a finger and motioning it toward your lips. “This is the last one already,” you say, sticking your tongue at him, almost as if to show him.
Jason smirks, then beckons you to move closer toward him. “Come here,” he says, the smirk still present on his lips. You give him a confused look but do as he says, anyway, leaning your head closer toward him as you wait for his next words.
You watch as his smirk widens just the slightest, watch as he leans his head forward, stopping only once when his face is inches from yours. You furrow your eyebrows in confusion, silently wondering what it is he’s about to do. You open your mouth, about to voice your question, but before you could even do so, he’s already moved to close the distance between the two of you, crashing his lips against yours in a kiss.
Your eyes immediately widen in alarm and you quickly plant your hands against his chest, opting to push him away, but he only grabs your head and pulls you toward him, deepening the kiss.
His lips move against yours, slow and languid like he’s trying to savor every moment. It isn’t long before the moment is over and he’s finally moved to finally pull away from you. For a moment, all you could do is stare at him, still reeling from the events that had just happened, but a call of your name is enough to snap you out of your thoughts.
You quickly turn your head toward the source of the voice, discovering that it’s your teacher. She’s staring at the both of you, a glare in her eyes and a fury in her expression. “Todd, (Your Last Name),” she begins, crossing her arms over her chest as she continues to stare at the two of you. “What do you think you’re doing in my class?”
Todd remains silent, the smirk still present on his lips. You open your mouth to give your teacher a response—an explanation of some sort—but another glare from her is enough to silence you.
“You two will be staying after class for some…” she says, trailing off and pausing for a brief moment, trying to find the right words before continuing. “…Disciplinary action. Understood?”
You nod your head obediently at her words, afraid to anger her even more. Jason only gives her a nonchalant shrug, like he couldn’t care less at all, and the teacher only gives him another glare before going back to dawdling on about her lesson.
Jason only gives you a wink, before beginning to chew on a gum. You pause for a moment, staring at him as you try and take all of the events in. You narrow your eyes into a glare as you look at him, only now realizing what it is he’s just done.
a few thoughts from a former C$waner and the road to Swen
why did I change my mind ?
I was desperate for some true love story, and ouat was offering that or so I thought …
we can all agree that Snowing is True love and same with rumbelle, but what what I really wanted was a true love story for the savior, Emma deserved it, especially after what she’s been through with Neal and Graham … hook was the perfect candidate wasn’t he ?
The guy is hot as hell, i’ve always loved blue eyes contoured with eye liner ;), he was cocky but most importantly ; a villain ! who doesn’t love villains ? Loki, moriarty, Rumpelstiltskin… hook was unapologetically selfish and just .. bad, but he starts developing feelings for emma, and starts the road to ‘redemption’, now comes my personal view on this, i’ve always had bad experiences with men, my father being the first ( the guy is a cheater and selfish af ), I was desperate for a good story showing that a man can change but mostly that men can be good, I mean we all want to see that, so I start investing myself in hook and let’s say the truth here, season two and three hook WAS GOOD, he was on the right path to redeeming himself ( with a few mistakes here and there, at the time I thought it was alright, you can’t change overnight ), with Captain swan hints being dropped along the way, I was okay with, more than okay with even, Emma was getting a love story with a man who willing to change for her, we have enough of these stories already but fairytale stories have more meaning right ? so this one was special,,, and things start going downhill from there ( I will never say it out loud, but C$ was disappointing me from there i’ll never admit it out loud but i can say it on here) hook was treating Emma worse and worse, but they always found a way to make him ‘apologize’ for it and just like Emma I bought his crap (because whether i want it or not society has taught me to just do that) even tho’ a part of me still thought that was wrong, I still gave him the 5th 6th 7th 8th … chance! and another part of me also didn’t want to be disappointed in the show that changed my life, I watched the episodes days or weeks later on (never happened in s3 and before ) but I still cling to the hope of happiness for Emma and trusted the writers to make it better, but C$ wasn’t that ooh so worshiped OTP of mine, it wasn’t the true love story I dreamed of, I Got so confused at times ( when Emma lied to hook about him being the dark one for example, OR WHEN SHE KILLED HIM SO HE COULD DIE A HERO?!? I kept telling myself what kind of love is that ? and I’m passing so many more) but because they made sense on paper I didn’t give too much of a thought, I convinced myself that its writers giving us shit drama like always
and then arrives season 6,the season of realization : while in the previous season hook was making mistakes, and I forgived him, my brain just couldn’t take it anymore, hook is a living mistake in this season, I even started to question his character, and what was his general goal was ? but then again, I love Emma so much, I wasn’t now just acting like her but like most of the characters at this point ? they all want her happiness and just let her be with that toxic man ? I feel like her parents and everyone else feels the same at this point, in took David 4 seasons to finally ‘accept’ the guy ( and by his look he wasn’t sure of his decision), I just wanted Emma to have her happy ending.
when did I realize that they weren’t meant for each other you say ?
WHEN HE LIED TO HER ABOUT KILLING HER GRANDFATHER. the guy lowkey wanted to burn the memory of it, he was thinking for an entire episode whether to tell her the truth or not ? and when he finally decides to do so the worst proposal of all times happens and then he just what? burns the memory of his act. he could’ve interrupted her that night and tell her the truth BUT HE DIDN’T. he was willing to start their married life together with a lie, and not just oh I swear I didn’t at that woman’s chest lie, HE KILLED HER GRANDFATHER, thats a divorce cause material. thats when I realized Emma’s true love wasn’t hook ( plus all the previous moments in the previous seasons)
let’s talk about Swan queen for a minute:
I was the biggest ‘swan queen friendship’ shipper, in my early oncer days I was against them being romantic, probably because of my personal experience as well, I was having some troubles with my own sexuality at the time, I refused to acknowledge it, even if it’s just watching a queer couple on TV, it made me uncomfortable and I feared that if I gave in in that aspect of my life it’d become too real ( and held into C$ ) Only just last year that I came out to friends as Bi, so yeah Swan queen was no option for me, BUT IT WASN’T for them, I still saw their actions, I still saw their looks their mutual love for each, their deep affection to one another, the fact that they lean on each other, help one another and never ever stopped believing in one another, but still my dumb closeted self refused to believe it.
how does my personal life influence my vision of this ship tho’:
I believe, like ouat has told in ep’ 6x14 the most important thing in life is accepting and loving yourself, after one special event in my life I finally saw the light about myself and admitted what I was denying my whole life and now I love me ( just like regina does now ) and started seeing ouat with new eyes, eyes that could finally see and a heart that could finally admit that swan queen is the real deal, my eyes and heart finally see that the true love I wanted for Emma has always been there the character development I wanted to see was in Regina, her happy ending was there that whole time.
now thats just my personal take on it, you don’t have to be lgbt to see it, hook isn’t the right one for Emma, Regina is, and I will repeat this as much as i have to … if it is the last thing I do ;)
ps: thanks to that ONE tumblr post who made me go back and re-watch all the swan queen videos haha
Imagine the squad trying to get percy/annabeth to crack/sell the other out or whatever and they're trying so hard to intimidate them but lmao these kids have seen and fought some fucked up crazy shit do you think the threat of going to prison is gonna scare them? so percy jus kinda. looks bored the entire time and annabeth stares the interrogator down as soon as they walk in and continues to do so throughout the whole thing
this baby monster of a brooklyn 99/pjo crossover is finally here.
As with all interesting cases, it starts with blue cake.
Well, technically, this one is kicked off by the seasoned
detective, Rosa Diaz, responding to a routine breaking and entering at an
apartment a few blocks away from the precinct, on Lincoln St. Okay, maybe not
routine for the victim—an older woman who says she’s a school teacher—but Rosa
thinks that in some part, it’s the tenant’s fault for not being more deliberate
about how they choose to protect their homes as well as conceal its location.
That being said, she’s intent on making the people of this
city (or at least those who deserve it) feel safer, especially with instances
like this that are totally preventable. So, she’s taking a statement from the
lady who’s claiming that no, nothing was
actually stolen but my beloved Tommy is missing. When Rosa asks who Tommy
is (perhaps her child?), the woman scoffs that it’s her five year old exotic
shorthair and that no one appreciates felines.
Just as the woman is showing her pictures of the admittedly
ugly ass cat, and Rosa’s considering telling her so, a heavy thud resounds from
the apartment over, as well as a sharp shout.
Rosa quirks an eyebrow, and the woman rushes to complain
about her neighbors: a girl and a boy, who she can faintly hear speaking to each
other through the thin walls. “Those two college kids—living together in sin—and I swear they just hateTommy. They probably stole him.” She
gasps dramatically. “They could be torturing

A/N: Seriously so sorry for taking this long to update. I started real estate classes and my first day i took so many notes my hand started swelling. Life is really draining me right now, on top of keeping my Instagram and YouTube updated and getting ready for college. I hope you understand. Hopefully part 10 comes faster than this part did. Also lets pretend Anthony Mackie has social media, okay?
I just finished Howl’s Moving Castle and oh god guys I have so many feelings about this book
I could go on and on about how wise and funny and wonderful it is (and I might, at some point, but I’m sure people infinitely more eloquent than me have already shared their thoughts) but right now I need to talk about Sophie and Howl because HOW I LOVE THEM
Probably my ultimate weakness is those couples that you don’t see coming, the ones that sneak up on you. The problem with couples that are obviously endgame from the first is that (although there are some that are well written) the majority just end up being dull. When you know from the very first scene that two people are going to get together, there’s nothing to root for.
When it comes to my OTPs, I need to be caught off guard. I need to fall in love with them slowly, even as they fall in love with each other.
And that’s where I think Howl’s Moving Castle shines. I watched the movie before I read the book, so I knew how it ends, but I really do believe that anyone who hadn’t already seen the film could make it through at least half the book without thinking, well, Howl and Sophie are definitely endgame. Their relationship up till then is a thing of beauty in and of itself, even without the factor of romance.
And, oh, god. Don’t even get me started on the snark. I adore snarky couples in any and every permutation. I read them. I watch them. I write them. When I die, bury me in wryly sarcastic OTPs.
(Note that there is a world of difference between snarky and cruel. I do not need or want couples who are terrible to each other, but OTPs who bat conversation back and forth between them like a ping-pong ball, who keep each other on their toes - ah, they are my catnip and kryptonite.

Hey, I wanted to tell you how much I love your writing (because it's a lot). When you have time, do you think you could write something about Jason and Tim keeping their relationship a secret and being found out by the family because of some kind of pressing, exiting situation and everyone's very shocked? Please and thank you!
Thanks so much!!
Tim was late for dinner.
Jason was pissed.
The second thing may have had something to do with the first thing. Or maybe it was because Bruce was being an ass, and Dick was trying to make things more comfortable but ended just being an ass too, and Damian wasn’t even trying not to be ass, and Alfred was radiating disappointment in all of their assery.
If Tim were there he would probably be an ass too, but in a way that drew Bruce’s attention away from Jason and made Dick laugh and gave Damian a target.
But he wasn’t there.
And Jason was pissed.
They’d already started eating, because you can sit at a table staring at the food for only so long before it gets ridiculous, and thankfully Alfred decided it was time to call it and admit that Tim wouldn’t be showing up soon, and let them eat. So Jason was just stuffing his mouth with some chicken (delicious, but would have been more enjoyable without the oppressive blanket of judgement and resentment filling the room) when his phone rang. Alfred raised an eyebrow in a way that said, no phone calls at the dinner table, but when Jason went to silence it he saw where the call was coming from.
He answered. “Hello?”
“Is this Jason Todd?”
“This is Nancy from Gotham General Hospital. We have a Timothy Drake here. You’re listed as his next of kin, and we need you to come in right away.”
“I’ll be right there.” It was, most likely, the edge in his voice that prompted the others to look at him then, all going still. Jason didn’t waste time asking if Tim was okay, because if he wasn’t they wouldn’t have called him. He didn’t ask what happened, because it didn’t really matter how Tim got hurt, just that he was hurt and he needed Jason.
Jason stood. “Sorry, Alfred, I gotta go.”
Dick asked, “What is it?”
“Tim,” Jason answered, patting his pockets to make sure his keys and wallet were there. “He’s at the hospital.”
He was already halfway to the door when Bruce asked, “Why did they call you?”
Part of Jason wanted to stop, wanted to watch their faces and revel in their shock. Part of him never wanted to see their reaction, full of horror and disgust. But more importantly, Jason didn’t have time to waste, he had to get to Tim, so, without breaking his stride, he said, “Because we’re married,” and left, ran out of the house and jumped on his bike and gunned it down the driveway.
(Sorry, I didn’t really write the shocked part; I was going to do another scene where everyone shows up at the hospital and they demand answers, but I liked that mic drop moment, so I’m leaving it there. Also, worry not, Tim is gonna be okay.)
I feel like i’m a broken record at this point, so I just need to make a really long post about Bughead so i can effectively put all my thoughts out there.
Hi, let me introduce myself. My name is Kiley and i’m addicted to bughead. Bughead: Mixture of the names Betty and Jughead. A beautiful ship of understanding and care between two beautiful people.
“She can appreciate his moodiness and his darkness because she has that within her as well.” - Lili Reinhart
“Jughead was this character that was very much searching for- yaknow a comfort and companionship in other people and uh, he ended up finding that within this super nurturing, care taking, loving figure that Betty Cooper has become.” “It’s something deeper and more romantic then I think people are going to expect- which is nice.” - Cole Sprouse
All of the things I have been seeing in the Bughead tag are these:
1.Asexual Jughead complaints
2.People talking about no chemistry
3.People complaining about it being too soon
4. Pure hatred and disgusting comments about Bughead shippers or just the ship in general.
Opinion on 1: *clears throat* So. I can understand why people want the asexual representation and are upset. It would be interesting/amazing to see the sexuality played out on screen and it would be so lovely for the asexual people to see someone with their sexuality on tv. BUT- Cole Sprouse has said that he does not believe they are going that route with this version of Jughead, yes, VERSION. There are different version of Jughead, until the most recent version of Jughead, there was no CANON asexual Jughead. I believe if the creators of the show want to make him not asexual (or asexual) then they should. (And don’t attack me for saying this please because I literally have said an asexual Juggie would be amazing.) My point is, they already have said his character is not asexual, so arguing and being mad about it is honestly like speaking to a brick wall because it most likely is not going to change.
I have heard though that next season Jughead could find out that he is asexual (because he is supposed to be 15-16) and I think that would be cool seeing as Lili said “Betty and Jugheads relationship as it progresses is really quite beautiful and they’re very supportive to one another.” which in my head would work so well with Jughead coming out as asexual to her.
OFF TO OPINION ON 2: I mean you can have the opinion that they have no chemistry, but literally before episode 6 I got the strongest vibes off of them both just from short glances they shared. When Jughead put his hand on Betty’s shoulder in episode 5 I believe when Grandma Blossom scared them- to me it came off like ‘Protective Jughead is being protective without being too protective to make Betty think I don’t like her’. ALSO, if Bughead wasn’t written since the beginning someone literally has to tell Cole because I think he always thought Jughead was in love with her. He stares SO intensely at Betty and it’s like you can see the gears turning in his head, making me wonder what he is thinking about while looking at her. Probably “Wow Betty 10/10 hope Alice Cooper doesn’t stab me to death.”
The chemistry is ALSO SO FUCKING STRONG because they can share single glances and just KNOW what the other is trying to say. The breakfast table scene. The lunch table scene. The Home For Troubled Youth scene where she looks back at him in the hallway. LIKE I JUST CANT. Maybe I am just delusional but I hope I am not and someone notices the things I do.
Opinion on 3: OKAY THIS. THIS. I have a strong opinion on this. Like my own little head canon until it is addressed. I believe that Jughead has had a crush on Betty for a while but he could never say anything because he knew how she felt about Archie. Archie was his best friend and he didn’t want to intrude on something between Betty and Archie potentially.BUT- he probably heard about what happened between Archie and Betty and realizes that he can slowly start to show his emotions now (obviously not forcing them onto her but gently nudging them her way to let her know because he knows she is trying to get over Archie still). Betty and Jughead have known each other since childhood, so to them it definitely isn’t random or too soon. For some people who do not see it my way, please just realize we only have been looking in on their life for 6 episodes. But their lives were going on before the show, and we don’t know the things that went on in their lives before (other than what we hear and future flashbacks hopefully.) Cool? Cool.
Opinion on 4: I have no opinion besides, I’m disappointed. I’m not gonna return your hate with more hate because that’s not how I work. But thanks for calling me names for something I ship and assuming you know everything about me :)
On another note, I have something to say. I think it’s funny how because it’s Bughead everyone is mad and triggered but I feel like if Jarchie happened, everyone would forget about their arguments most likely and no fighting would be happening. But I mean, Obviously it wouldn’t be hated on because some representation is being spread- BUT it still would be taking away his asexuality so I feel like everyone is lowkey a hypocrite. AND NO I am not saying everyone who is anti-bughead wouldn’t feel the same towards Jarchie as they feel towards Bughead, but I have noticed a lot of people who are against Bughead and using the arguement of asexual Jughead, also ship Jarchie.. just my thoughts.
OKAY LOVE MY LITTLE BUGHEAD FAMILY XX <3 PEACE and BUG
Hi!! Just wanted to say your blog always gives me positive Jonsa vibes!! I know it's probably something you've already answered but I'd really like to know how you came to ship Jon and Sansa in the show??
Oh my god. I’m probably going to ramble a lot so please bear with me. Lemme start at the beginning. This is the order in which I liked the Starks in season one.
3. Arya and Jon
4. Bran Stark
5. Catelyn Stark
6. Sansa and Rickon
Yes, Sansa was the least favourite of the Starks for me but of course I never did really hate her. After Ned’s death (which was my first WTF?? moment on GOT) I thought she was not going to survive for too long. Robb stark was then my most favourite stark. (I still love him). I felt hope for Sansa, I started to like her more when she stood up to Joffrey knowing very well what it would earn her. Her dreams were shattered and she truly became GRRM’s variety of course but nevertheless a princess trapped in a golden cage/castle with the man of her dreams turning into her worst nightmare. I felt for her and sincerely hoped her brother would soon rescue her.
Jon on the other hand went through a similar though less drastic phase of disillusionment. When Ned Stark died I really wanted Jon to join Robb and the Starks to take over but of course that was never meant to happen because the focus was kept on Robb for a reason. The Red wedding. My second WTF my life is over moment on GOT!!
D. Targ remained the only hope for westeros and I really thought at that point that she and Jon should collaborate at some point and rid westeros of all its evil. I liked ygritte but somehow I never thought that her’s and Jon was a romance that was going to last. I knew she was going to die even before she was going to die and I was saved from my third WTF moment on game of thrones.
When Sansa got married to Tyrion, I heaved a huge sigh of relief. Here was a man who was clever and kind and would treat her with respect and even remain loyal to her. Finally Sansa Stark’s future was beginning to look not so bleak and I thought even though physically Tyrion was the exact opposite of what Sansa wanted, he might be her happy ending. But that didn’t materialise in the end.
When I was disappointed in Sansa’s character about her trusting LF, the worst thing ever happens to her - Ramsay Bolton. And suddenly I’m awed by Sansa Stark. Inspite of the torture she’s being put through she remains strong. Broken but strong. She’s the one who brings Theon out of Reek. She’s constantly trying to escape her fate and I began to love her. I can’t tell you the amount of disappointment I felt when Brienne fails to see her lit candle. That was my first “I’m going to kill you D&D” on GOT!!
The amount of tension that I felt in the time between Sansa and Theon’s escape from winterfell and her reaching the wall is the most amount of tension that I’ve ever felt in GOT. I was screaming “Please Sansa… just reach Jon. And don’t you dare die before you reach!!!!”
When the gates of castle black opened and I saw Sansa come in and that reunion happened I was like. FINALLY SOMETHING GOOD HAS HAPPENED ON THRONES!! I was confident that Jon is going to do everything to protect his sister and then the reunion scene happened. And it was just WOW!!
It was during the “where will we go?” Scene that the first thought crept into my head ..
Me: “God.. Kit Harrington is made for romance… the way Jon’s looking at Sansa…”
Also me: Idiot!! They’re brother and sister.
In the scene with Ramsay’s letter… when Sansa held Jon’s hand ..For a second I was like.. oooooook. But the next second I told myself “She said ‘our brother’ and “our home.. Jeez get your mind out of the gutter!!”
In Sansa’s scene with Little finger when she says “My brother and I will take back the north.” I told myself ‘See, there’s nothing there. You’ve been reading too many romance novels.“ And then LF stresses on “Half - brother”
And I went “Oh no.. here I go again.”
Then in the scene where they are all planning how to rally the north against Ramsay I was like “Er… Isn’t Jon staring a little too much at Sansa??”
But then I was caught off guard by Sansa lying to Jon about where she got information about the blackfish. And then Sansa says “Jon is Jon. I trust him. He’s my brother.” Again I was like “She’s making it pretty clear that he’s her brother…”
Then Sansa gives him a cloak and Jon fumbles and Sansa is looking so pretty and Jon blushes when Edd sees him wearing the cloak and Jon leaves castle black looking like a king and Sansa follows right behind him looking like his queen and I was like “Which is this show that I’m watching, again? Game of thrones??? Sorry!! I forgot that for a minute.”
I didn’t catch any such vibes in their scene with Lyanna Mormont. My whole focus was on an exceptionally talented little girl who literally ate up the screen.
The scene with Lord Glover was the beginning of the huffs and the disagreements which went on to heavy breathing and small pauses in the scene before Sansa sends LF the raven which grew to laboured breathing and pregnant pauses in the scene before the BOB which is the scene in which I finally said to myself “There’s something more than a sibling relationship happening here!!”
Then the forehead kiss happened which I tried my level best to not read into (Jon did not look at her lips… he was just… I don’t know maybe pink is a better colour than white… of course snowflakes falling does not make the whole scene look romantic… it just means winter is here..)
Then the cousin reveal happened. My fourth WTF?? Moment on GOT, in an I’m so excited way
Then the King in the north scene happened. My fifth WTF?? Moment on GOT, In an I’m screaming with joy way
I must say that until this point I dint know anything about the books, I didn’t know a ship called Jonsa even existed, I had not read a single meta and I didn’t know about the existence of Ao3 and jonsa fanfiction. And ironically not a thing about tumblr. I just called my brother who doesn’t have a single romantic bone in his body and asked him, “I got a weird feeling that this show wants us to see Jon and Sansa in a romantic light.” To which he said, “Well, surprisingly me too.. kind of.” That was enough for me to ship them.
What I am really trying to say in this irritatingly long ass answer is that I was person who never thought I would EVER ship Jon with Sansa, never wanted to ship them, went back and forth, had conflicted feelings about them throughout season 6 before jonsa became my OTP.
And it is my HONEST opinion that this is exactly what the makers of the show wanted us to feel. This is my Jonsa story!!!
I’ve been in several TV fandoms over the years. Star Trek, Mork
and Mindy, Beauty and the Beast, Moonlighting, Doogie Howser, 90210, Dark
Angel, Ally McBeal, Doctor Who, House, Lie to Me, Burn Notice, Firefly, Gilmore
Girls, The Office, HIMYM, White Collar, Downton Abbey, Sherlock, Outlander,
I’ve always loved watching TV shows with other people and
analyzing the story, the characters, the ships, the writing…I get thinky and
geek out. I love it. For almost a few decades, I’ve had my husband to do that
So, when my husband decided to stop watching OUAT with me
after season four, I came here. Why? Because people out there think I’m weird
when I talk spec, talk headcanons, multiship, get excited over a fictional wedding, or watch/read
spoilers and talk about them. When I’m, y’know…me.
I’ve made some great friends who were simply fellow geeks.
Why? Because you let me be me. You tell me it’s not only okay, but it’s awesome.
Because you get the obsession, the excitement, the unabashed joy when a show or
movie or book or comic series or game or thing
is great. You get the disappointment, the sadness, the rage, the upset, the
sick feeling in your stomach when something goes down and it means your favorite
thing is about to change or go away.
When Star Trek: TNG
went to movies and wasn’t my constant…
When my OTP finally got
together on Moonlighting and then the writing went to shit…
When they cancelled
Dark Angel just as the cops and the transgenics were at a standoff…
I rage quit Ally McBeal
when RDJ went to prison and Larry left. That
Sting solo is still my fave…
FIREFLY. No explanation needed.
FUCKING DOOMSDAY. Pink
and yellow papercut was my LOVE on Doctor Who.
(same show): When the
Ponds got taken by Manhattan.
House and Cuddy. WTF.
When Matthew died on Downton
Abbey, I didn’t watch for a whole season.
I was in mourning.
And then Once Upon a
Time killed Killian a handful of times, and killed Robin, and here we are.
I don’t know if I’ll watch season 7 of OUAT, if it happens.
I might not like it. If I don’t, I don’t. I’ll figure things out. I get why
Jennifer left, and that’s cool. She and I are the same age. I just made a huge
life-change as well. It happens. It doesn’t mean I’m not worried about Emma, or
Henry, or Hook, or the Charmings, or Regina, or Storybrooke.
But I’ve been here before, and I’ll be here again, I’m sure.
So will you. The only constant is change.
So, I’ve got your back, and you’ve got mine, no matter what
show or movie or book comes next.
A while back @loving-cs-fanfiction reblogged this post and I was stupid enough to start writing this prompt on top of all the things I had to do already, today I finally give her The Thing. It’s slightly more stupid than anything she might have wanted, but I had all the fun writing it. Unbeta’d so forgive me for these 5300 words (exactly geez) of Captain Swan. I’ll re-read it later, but for now I just want it to be OUT of my drafts.
Without further ado, I give you the silliest soulmate au you’ve ever read.
Rum was a good idea. Vodka was an awesome idea. Thank God for Ruby and her incredible supply of alcohol, because Emma was having the time of her life.
So what if she had an nine a.m. class the morning after? She could do it. She could totally drink everyone under the table, she was not at all drunk. Not one bit.
“Emma, careful! The table!”
Okay, maybe she was a little bit drunk. Just a tad. No biggie, she could use Granny’s hangover cure in the morning and everything would be fine. She kind of hoped she would black out so she wouldn’t remember seeing Killian fucking Jones sporting her name on his exposed chest like some sort of prize or whatever because he was the sworn enemy of his own buttons.
ZOE I COME TO YOU WITH A NEW SHIP PROMPT BECAUSE I AM DROWNING IN SPIRK THESE DAYS. (if you are uncomfy writing spirk please don't do it just... spirk. ♥) So.. Line...Ummm okay *sometimes, Jim wanted to do anything to just make Spock shut up, punch him in the face... or kiss him. He wasn't picky.* (yes i suck at prompting I am sorry)
(ONE OF MY ULTIMATE OTPS, NO AMOUNT OF NERVOUSNESS CAN STOP ME FROM TRYING!!! And nooo, it’s a good light hearted prompt to ease my way in!! Okay, here we gooooooooo!! AO3 link, cos it broke 2k and the ‘read more’ never seems to work on mobile!)
Sometimes, Jim wanted to do anything just to make Spock shut up. It wasn’t that he didn’t like talking to him, they often talked for hours off duty. But his reports were so dry, and he always insisted on summarising them out loud. Probably because he suspected Jim wouldn’t read them. He was mostly correct there. Still, it was even worse when he started summarising a report on the bridge, when Jim had only wandered over to his station to break the monotony or a slow day.
Listening to a dry report about the specimens they’d sampled on the previous planet was not breaking the monotony, in Jim’s opinion.
Even slumping slightly against Spock’s side, breaking into his personal space, wasn’t shutting him up. That sometimes made him take a step back and re-evaluate whether Jim was even listening. Not this time. This report was particularly dry, as Spock detailed the chemical structure of something. Jim wasn’t really listening. He was already thinking of other ways to shut him up. Punch him in the face, or kiss him. He wasn’t picky.
Either would certainly break the monotony, even if both were highly inappropriate, and likely to land him in the infirmary.
“I really would prefer to be kissed, rather than punched, if you are going to resort to such barbaric means of shutting me up,” Spock suddenly said, and it took a moment for his words to filter through Jim’s boredom.
The dead silence on the bridge helped him get there. He blinked stupidly at Spock for moment.
“No, you did not say that out loud,” Spock said, raising one eyebrow to the exacting height that indicated amusement.
Jim looked down. Sure enough, in his first attempt of shutting him up by invading his personal space, he had leaned against his side enough that their wrists were touching.
Feeling his face heat up, he pulled his hand back, so his thoughts were no longer open to Spock’s perusal. Clearing his throat, he glanced around the bridge, and everyone turned back to their instruments.
“I’m shocked, Mr. Spock,” he said, not looking at him directly. “One would think the former is breaking more regulations than the latter.”
He could see Uhura fighting a smile at her station, and scowled at her.
“Physically assaulting a high-ranking officer, even as Captain, is certainly a more serious infraction than kissing him,” Spock said, and Jim gave him a scandalised look, unable to believe he was actually saying that. On the bridge.
“Surely kissing a high-ranking officer without permission is classed as a form of assault,” he said, before thinking it thought. “With longer reaching consequences.”
Spock tilted his head, his eyebrow still at that amused height. “You assume lack of permission in haste, Captain, did I not just indicate permission?”
Jim couldn’t stop his eyes from widening. He was sure his face would be red. Had he stepped into some sort of alternate reality that morning? Was this even Spock? His calm and collected, logical, at least while on duty, First Officer?
“Surely when forced to choose between a kiss and a punch, it’s not the sort of permission that can circumvent regulations and prevent disciplinary action?” he said, his voice a bit weak.
Spock’s lips twitched, and Jim stared at him in shock. He’d not seen him look so openly amused outside of their off-duty interactions before.
“Surely an able Captain is not the kind to suggest something he is not brave enough to carry out?” Spock teased.
Jim made an embarrassing sound before he could stop himself. “Surely a capable First Officer is not one to take thoughts and hold a man to them!”
“Would a Captain rather face disciplinary actions for touching a Vulcan with his skin, without explicit permission?” Spock’s tone indicated no offence, but Jim still felt guilt twist his stomach. He broke that rule far too often, usually without even realising it at the time. “Which do you think the Admiralty would prefer to deal with? That, or a more personal breach of protocol?”
“Why, Mr. Spock, surely a Vulcan would prefer the former,” he said weakly. It was starting to sound like Spock was trying to corner him into kissing him. That was making thinking rather difficult.
Spock tilted his head to the side. “Why, Captain, I do believe you are exhibiting cowardice. Over a simple human gesture. How fascinating.”
Jim clenched his hands into fists, and his face grew hotter. Spock certainly had a tilt to his lips now that indicated a smirk. He was toying with him, and winning.
“Or maybe I was leaning more towards punching you!” he hissed.
Spock’s lips quivered, clearly wanting to smirk more openly. Usually Jim revelled in making him break that Vulcan mindset, and show his human half, but today he was completely thrown by it.
“How disappointing,” Spock said. “But the monotony is broken, is it not?”
“The mono—” Jim cut himself off. His voice was too high. And Spock looked entirely too amused, even if it was only by such minute shifts in his expression. “Mr. Spock! This is highly irregular!”
“But very educational,” Spock said. “That someone so brave could be so affected by such an innocent topic. I have witnessed this behaviour in other humans before, but thought you above it. Fascinating.”
Jim gaped at him. “I am shocked by your impertinence, Mr. Spock,” he said, regaining awareness of where they were, when Uhura sniggered. “Any more of this, and I’ll have to take disciplinary action.”
That only seemed to amuse Spock more. “Of a more official capacity? Or are we still discussing your indecision of how best to assault me into shutting up, as you put it?”
Uhura lost control, and let loose a peal of laughter. Jim was used to the bridge crew getting loose with regulations and propriety on particularly uneventful days, and often encouraged it, but he had never seen Spock so completely unprofessional while on duty before.
“Mr. Spock! Do we need to take this discussion of insubordination to the briefing room? You are setting a disappointing example to the crew!”
Spock tilted his head again, and he openly smirked. The sighed had Jim’s pulse racing Open displays of emotion from Spock always had that effect on him.
“It would be a more appropriate location for an altercation between high ranking officers, so that the lower ranks don’t get ideas, Captain.”
Jim spluttered for a moment, truly torn between punching him for making such a fool of him, and shoving him back against the console and making him eat his words.
“Oh, I do prefer the latter option, Captain,” Spock said, and squeezed his wrist. Jim hadn’t even noticed him touch it. “If you must break regulations.
“Mr. Sulu, you have the conn!” Jim snapped, pulling his wrist free, and glaring at Spock. “Mr. Spock, proceed to the briefing room, so we can discuss your blatant insubordination in private.”

++Bonus for #1: A gets flustered and gets called cute by everyone in the call.
Since it’s screamed Hartwin and they are two of my favourite enablers, I told them that as soon as I finished the bang I would be on it. So here it is ;) Hope you enjoy my darlings o3o
Going blind, but not deaf
“Be right back, I need to change.”
Eggsy’s feed goes dark and Merlin finally acknowledge Harry who’s been standing behind him for quite some time already.
“Not too disappointed of not getting a free show I hope?”
“This is not why I am here.” He’s only half-lying and judging by Merlin’s smirk, the handler is perfectly aware of it. It doesn’t stop Harry from persisting in his lie though. “I have those autorisations you needed.”
“Hmmhmm.” He grabs the papers Harry is handing him and doesn’t even give them a cursory look before putting them away to file later. “Strange how you always seem to have paperwork for me whenever Galahad’s close to his hotel room.”
“That’s purely coincidental.”
Merlin snorts and if Harry thought his friend would let the matter once again he’s proven wrong pretty quickly.
“The first time maybe, but I’m sure your decisions to come down so often is greatly influenced by how often Galahad forgets to turn off his feed when he gets naked.”
“I’ve come plenty of time when he’s just doing usual mission stuff too.”
“I’ll concede you that one, but don’t you find it strange how you never seem to come around whenever I’m not handling Galahad’s mission?”
This time, Merlin loses his smirk, raising an eyebrow, clearly expecting an answer. He’d probably let him get away with not answering, but if he’s being honest with himself, keeping silent about his profound affection for Eggsy is starting to weight heavy on him.
“What do you want from me Merlin? Admit that I worry about him more than I should? You don’t have to tell me he’s more than capable to deal with whatever comes his way, I know he is. But I still worry and I always will. Sue me for being an old fool in love.”
There he’s said the word out loud for the first and probably the only time. It’s a bit of a shame that Eggsy won’t ever get to know just how much he’s loved, but truly, it’s better that way. He wouldn’t want him to be uncomfortable around him for anything in the world.
However, before either of them can say anything more, the screen that had been displaying Eggsy’s feed gets on again.
“Did I hear that right? Are you- Are you in love with me?” He should look ridiculous, staring in the mirror as if he can see them through it, in his pants and struggling to get out of his undershirt, but, like always, Harry is stricken by how beautiful he is.
From the corner of his eyes, he notices Merlin’s apologetic expression, meaning that the handler mustn’t have noticed that Eggsy had only shut off the video part of his feed and thus had heard everything they had said.
He could still deny it, find a way to turn his own words into something they’re not, but the cat’s out of the bad. And even if he does it for a living, Harry has grown rather tired of lying all the time.
“Yes Eggsy, you heard me right.” Eggsy gasps softly and finally frees himself from his undershirt, letting it fall on the ground without even seeming to notice. “But you needn’t concern yo-”
“’Needn’t concert myself?” Pfffft, you’re cute. Of course I’ll bloody concern myself with it!” Harry winces and braces himself for Eggsy’s rejection, for the breaking of all that ties them together, but whatever harsh words he was imagining, they never come. Instead, Eggsy’s expression turns soft and longing. Harry wishes he could reach out to him, cup his cheek in the palm of his hand and maybe kiss some happiness back into his eyes. “You love me, Harry. I- I never thought…” He cuts himself off, doubts crossing his face and Harry doesn’t know what scenarios he’s coming up with, only that he doesn’t care much for the sad curl of Eggsy’s lips.
“Well, I do. I do love you Eggsy. And if you’re willing to give me a chance, I-”
Again, Eggsy interrupts him, but this time with joyous laughter and he seem to light up the whole room with just his smile.
“Oh, Harry! You’re really cute. Of course I am ‘willing’!”
He wants nothing more than for Eggsy to see him now, know that he’s made him just as happy as Eggsy seems to be, but that is unfortunately not to be.
“Alright, as much as I am glad you’ll both stop with your pining, you’re still on a mission Galahad. And Arthur, I am sure you have more paperwork to fill out.”
He does indeed and usually Harry would dread it, but today, with Eggsy’s laughter still echoing in his ears, he finds that he doesn’t mind it as much.
Ignoring season 8 do you have any headcanons where they end up together and happy ?
My headcanon for this scenario is that, yes, Hyde is a bit scared of the future talk. He has always thought his destiny was to become like any other Hyde he has ever known, and suddenly everything has been changing around him: he has another father, a rich one, one that gives him a story and a new whole set of responsibilities, someone else to disappoint, someone else to proof he isn’t a sad case at the same time he still believes he is.
He is so comfortable with his lazy life and sad background, to try something else may only get things complicated, and he doesn’t do complicated because too much can go wrong and he is tired of that. This is the paradox of him and he is not able to see it at the beginning.
Suddenly, his friends are getting engaged, getting new and better jobs, real career choices, having babies and moving out from their parent’s places, travelling the world to discover themselves, moving to other cities to form their own families. But he has nothing but the certanity of a simple, wasted life.
But Jackie wants more. She wants to move forward and she needs to know he will be able to move with her. When he doesn’t have an asnwer, she believes the worst and he doesn’t have a voice to say otherwise, because how can she ask him for a future he has been all his life sure he would never have?
They breakup, which allows him to see her go forward with her life, getting her chance to do that show in the TV Acess, and getting closer to Donna. He tries to understand why she needs all these words and little by little sees that he can’t keep everything to himself anymore, if he wants to have her in his life.
And so, the time apart teaches him that right: life without her is just– not good. She is always the one who tries to get them back together, so maybe this time is his turn. And every time he wants to speak out, something happens, he finds a new excuse to not talk to Jackie and even his friends are getting tired of it.
She, on the other hand, is dealing with the fact that her life will never be what she dreamed of. She had started ot accept it but losing Steven punched the air out of her, and if she doesn’t want to end up a sad case like her mother or his mother, she starts picking up the pieces of herself she can reach without help.
That’s when Donna enters her life more than ever, she helps her with the other pieces and together, they are for the other as the boys they love find each other in their own way. Both have endured so much crap for them, if they seem a little distant and in their own world, it’s their soul healing.
Jackie gets to put her priorities straight: yes, she wants to have a job and form a career out of TV, but she still wants that healthy and happy marriage, she wants to have her own family one day, and for now on, nothing is getting in her way to have all that, especially not a boy.
Her new motto takes Hyde a little aback, because how is he going to be able to do that? To be a husband and a father, have enough will power to love a life like that. And it sounds so good, anyway, sounds like what The Formans have and what his dad had with his wife before she left this world, it all sounds like something he could never had.
Friendship starts between them, since he keeps supporting her career choices and he only wants him to be happy, even if their ways saparates them even more. The most they are together, the more she realizes she loves him and wishes things could be different. There are stolen kisses and glances that say so much, but no one speaks anyway.
Eventually, the Chicago job comes to Jackie and she has to decide between taking it and staying home, knowing they may be better oportunities in the future. She talks to Hyde about it, like friends, and boy, he wants her to stay and it’s now or never, he has to talk to her.
Between fighting and saying the truth, they get out what had been getting them apart and work out the rest. It’ll be a slow way, but they will eventually be fine and happy. He finds that he wants all that with her and she finds that she is willing to wait and enjoy the present, as long as he is with her.
So my perfect world is one where they realize their mistakes, accept them, forigve, heal, and grow together.
Summary: Hyde has never been good at words and Jackie has never been good at waiting, they need to find a balance to stay together. Hopefully, they’ll do it before is too late. JH, Season 7 Fix-it (sort of).
Bruce Wayne x Reader: Imagine a soulmate AU in which your OTP gets a step-counter. For each step they take, the number on the counter goes down, marking the moment they meet their soulmate. (Prompt from @otp-imagination)
Today was the day. Today was definitely the day that you were going to meet your soulmate. You only had a few thousand steps left on your mark until you were supposed to meet your soulmate. You requested the day off work and you got all dolled up. You were planning on going out for a night on the town with your friends. That was your plan anyway until your boss called you as you were coming out of the shower. You groaned before answering your phone.
“Hey, [Y/N] I know it’s supposed to be your day off but you need to come into work tonight. We’re catering a huge event at Wayne manor and Eliza’s just called out with the flu. We need you here tonight.” Your boss said on the other end of the line. You sighed audibly knowing that you didn’t really have a choice in the matter.
“Do I get overtime?” You ask, subconsciously already knowing the answer.
“No. We’ll cut your hours back later.” He answered without missing a beat. Great. Not only were you giving up possibly the night of dreams but there also was nothing in it for you. Despite all of that you felt obligated to assist in any way that you could.
“Yeah, I can come in.” You relented. Feeling deflated you started to get ready for work rather than meeting the love of your life. A small part of the back of your mind wondered if it was still possible for you to meet your soul mate tonight.
Well, this is it. The final episode of Pretty Little Liars. I’ll be honest, I had very low expectations for the finale. And I was even more disappointed than I expected to be. I guess some part of me hoped that we’d get lots of answers, and I’d be able to go back and rewatch from the beginning and piece it all together. But of course that didn’t happen. I’ve had some time to process it all and I didn’t hate it as much as I thought I did. The finale was a ridiculous mess but I did enjoy it. It was just a bit unsatisfying. I don’t know what else I expected from the show though. And don’t get me started on the full circle ending. So, here goes. The final ever analysis of a new PLL episode.
The beginning of the episode was so… odd. The Liars are just chatting. Their conversation was really weird. About frozen panties or some shit. Then Lucas comes along tap dancing. Umm??? I did not expect that to be the last we saw of Lucas. And then Jenna comes along riding on a horse. Okay?? And then it starts snowing… and it was just Mona looking into a snow globe. Imagine if the episode had ended like that??? If it was all Mona’s imagination. That would have actually been amazing! Anyway, the person in the back hoodie comes to visit Mona (in Welby I think she was) and she says she never would have guessed it was them. It must have been Wren!
All of the girls doing the shhh in the opening credits was amazing!! The perfect way to end the beginning of the final episode.
The first half of the episode focused on all the ships. I found myself getting bored for the majority of it. It was pretty much just fan service. And it felt different. It had a very different vibe.
Ezria were planning their wedding. I am so happy they acknowledged Aria’s ugly cry!! That was amazing! Aria can’t have kids. It was heartbreaking when she broke down and told Ezra. And they had that song that was playing when they found Maya’s body. Why are they messing with my emotions like this??
A year later, Emison have twins. Twin girls. Seriously, how many twin girls are there in Rosewood?? Okay, they’re just acting like a family and forgetting the fact that A.D violated Ali like that. Ali proposed. Which was pretty sweet, but I still don’t care. They do make a cute family, but I’m sorry, I just cannot support their relationship after everything that has happened.
I am so happy that Melissa was back!! I was so, so excited to see her in the black hoodie! That was everything I ever wanted! But… my heart sunk when it was revealed it was only Mona wearing a very realistic looking mask. Anyway, it was great to get to see Melissa in a black hoodie at least once. It really suited her. It was a missed opportunity not making her A.
Spoby! Spencer and Toby have always been my OTP and we got some great Spoby scenes. Or so I thought. I got so emotional when they were playing Scrabble. My Spoby heart! That is how they first bonded. That was the beginning of Spoby. They had their first kiss the morning after the first time they played Scrabble. And the S scrabble piece necklace that Toby gave her. Scrabble is their thing. I got really emotional watching that. ‘Limerence’. That was the final word of their game. The kind of unrequited love. My heart!! There were so many great Spoby scenes on the episode. But to think none of them were actually Spoby.
Haleb. I’m so bored of them. Don’t have much to say about them. Mona caused some drama in their relationship. Hanna was trying tog get pregnant. And in the end she did. Pretty boring typical stuff. So much unnecessary drama. We all know they’re going to have happy endings.
Umm, the HBO level sex. Okay… Lol I was cringing so hard at those scenes. And the music… Just, I was questioning what I was watching?
The Lost Woods Resort has been remade. It’s no longer a creepy place. It was nice to see them all chatting like adults for once. All of them together.
So, Addison is the new Alison. A bitchy mean girl. She is exactly how Alison used to be. And she has her own clique, with 4 other girls. It’s literally the Liars all over again. And a new A for their generation. I’m not sure how I feel about that whole thing. One of them is Maya’s niece. Jenna though. I love her! “I can smell a bitch a mile away.” ICONIC!
Mona! So, she has been working for A.D. She was told to wear the Melissa mask and spy on the Liars. And this whole time she’s had no idea who A.D was.
Mary is still in prison. When Spencer met with her it was so weird. That’s when I started to suspect that maybe that wasn’t Spencer. Their conversation was odd and full of twin clues.
The Wine Moms!! They mentioned the basement but we still don’t know how they got out! So good to see them get drunk together again. They need a spin off show!
So Spencer just threw herself at Toby. It made my Spoby heart happy, but none of this was actually even Spoby! I am so mad. Spoby shippers were robbed by this ending.
When Spencer was back in the barn, when just a second ago she was with Toby, that’s when I knew for sure they were going there. And when Mona slapped her. “De ja vu bitch!” OMG!!! And then she woke up in the strange room. It was like the Dollhouse all over again.
They went there!! They actually went there! Twincer/Spencerietta is confirmed!! Spencer was staring at her reflection and her reflection did something different and I was shaking. I can’t believe they actually went there! I knew it, but I still hoped it would be something better.
Alex Drake. Spencer’s twin sister. She lived in London. She happened to meet Wren one day when he came into the bar she worked at. He was convinced it was Spencer. He’s always had a thing for her. He ordered a vodka soda which is what Spencer ordered back in S1. Omg I was dying at this point!! Wren has always had a thing for the Hasting sisters. Omg.
Alex didn’t know about anything. She didn’t know she had a twin sister. She didn’t know she had another sister Charlotte. She didn’t know her mother was Mary Drake. Wren told her everything and that’s when it all started. When A.D began.
Okay, so wasn’t Wren living with Melissa in London?? How did Melissa have no idea about Alex?? Remember when Spencer visited Melissa in London. Was that actually Alex?? I am so confused.
Okay, so to get this straight. Alex Drake is Spencer’s twin sister. She’s British (Troian did an amazing job but her accent sounded a bit off at times). She wanted revenge for her sister Charlotte’s death. Wren helped her. She is A.D.
When Hanna saw Spencer when she was locked in that barn, that was Alex. She was one looking at the Hastings photo albums. She was the one who kissed Toby when he was about to leave. She’s the one who seduced him in the cabin. And she was the one at the airport with Wren. They were arguing. That’s why that scene was so awkward when they saw Ezra.
Alex was jealous of Spencer’s life. She wanted to become Spencer. She wanted her life. Very similar to Ali and Courtney in the books. Alex wanted a friendship like what Spencer has.
I have always loved Wrencer. I always kind of wished they’d get back together at some point. But this is not what I expected. I loved it though! Alex is a crazy bitch and made Wren shoot her in the same place Spencer was shot. Fuck this is what I always wanted in a villain on this show. I love it!!
I AM SO FUCKING MAD THAT THEY KILLED WREN!!! Alex that crazy bitch killed him and turned his ashes into a diamond! OH MY FUCKING GOD!!! That was the final straw. She is a fucking psychopath and I love her but I can’t believe she killed Wren. He’s now a fucking diamond I want to cry.
She kidnapped Ezra as well. And Ezria’s wedding was almost ruined. Aria’s wedding dress was so ugly. Who decided on that ugly dress??
Wren is the father of Emison’s babies! I fucking knew it!! Well, I guess the only good thing is as well as living forever as a diamond, he will also live on in the twins. Alex always knew he’d make beautiful babies.
So, what was Mary’s game? Whose side was she on? She says she didn’t know if Alex was even alive. She was taken right after she was born. Well, Mary sold her to get out of Radley. I love Mary and Spencer’s relationship and I just hope that it really was real. After everything Spencer deserves a real mother.
So, Ezra and Spencer are locked in ‘some do it yourself dungeon’. I was laughing at how ridiculous the whole things was.
So, now that Wren is dead Spencer wants Toby. SHe’s obsessed with him and wants to be Spencer so that he will love her. That’s some messed up shit and I love it!
So Sara was basically irrelevant?? We never got to know her motive. Was she kidnapped or not? Where are the answers??
Charlotte met Archer Dunhill on the flight to Paris. She’d been in contact with Wren and met Alex at the airport. That flashback was great! So, that was how they met and how they became such good friends.
Okay, so the whole thing with Archer marrying Alison was nothing to do with Alex or A.D or any fucking thing. This is just leaving me with more questions. I am so confused.
Charlotte wanted to keep playing the game. Playing with her dolls. Alex wanted too help. Their relationship was sweet and the goodbye was sad. (And why were there English flags behind them. We know they’re in London, you don’t need to keep reminding us!!!)
That was the last time Charlotte and Alex saw each other. That’s why she became A.D. Charlotte told her all about what the Liars did. And what she did to them. And Alex wanted revenge because she blamed them for Charlotte’s death. Okay, yes. A very simple motive. That makes sense. Unlike CeCe’s motive which I still don’t completely understand. But as well as her motive, which I understand, she’s just psychopath who wants to hurt people. Which is everything I wanted A to be.
Spencer’s horse was the first one to find out that Spencer wasn’t Spencer. Animals are smart like that. Then finally Toby started to notice something was off. But Jenna was the next to figure it out. A horse and a blind girl figured it out before anyone else.
And then it took them about 5 seconds to realise that Spencer has an evil twin. Really?? They’ve been wondering who A.D is for years and it takes them 5 seconds to figure it out??
Alex with the axe was everything I wanted in a villain on this show. THIS is the A I wanted! A psychotic bitch who just wants revenge. She doesn’t want people to feel sorry for her because of her tragic backstory. She just wants to hurt people and laugh about it. THIS is what I have always wanted! As cringey and cliche as this whole ting was I loved every minute of it! When she went form British to American accent I got chills! Aaaaaaah! Remember the spoilers that said Wren was A and he dropped his accent mid sentence?? We got that but it was Alex not Wren but it was everything I wanted (almost)! I was living for crazy Alex!
So the Dollhouse 2.0 was actually the house that Toby built. The one he was building for Spencer. Alex bought it, and made the Dollhouse 2.0. It’s completely underground. There was a tunnel system and everything. And an artificial sky. It was so creepy but so cool! I wish we could have seen more of it. The others went to the house and it literally looked like Spencer’s house. Seriously, it’s Dollhouse 2.0.
I LOVED the showdown between the twins where Alex copied everything Spencer said, trying to imitate her as best as she could. And then the others arrived and Toby aimed his gun at them, but he couldn’t tell who was who. That reminded me of something but I could not remember what. And then it came to me. It’s literally a scene from Hannah Montana. When Miley’s evil cousin was pretending to be Hannah Montana and Oliver and Lilly couldn’t tell which was the real Miley. Yep, very original scene haha!
When they figured out which was the real Spencer by asking what her favourite poem is I started crying. The whole thing was ridiculous and stupid, but it made me so emotional. They finally caught A.D. Finally after all this time it’s all over.
The Ezria wedding was beautiful I’ll admit. Not because I necessarily like them, but because they were all together. They were all happy. A.D was not there to ruin anything anymore. And wtf was Marlene’s cameo?? I couldn’t stop laughing omg!!! And she did the shhh!?!!
The Liars right at the end ruined me. It was a goodbye to them. This is the last we are going to see of them. And they’re all happy. For the first time in their lives they are actually all happy. I was crying. It’s the end. I’ve grown up with these characters. This is the end of an era.
And Mona got a happy ending too. She is living in Paris. She has a French boyfriend/husband (who I just realised is the cop that came and arrested Alex. On my rewatch I realised he had a French accent in that scene). She has Mary and Alex in her very own Dollhouse. Mona got the real happy ending.
And then the ending we pretend never happened (I rewatched the episode on Australian TV and this scene wasn’t even in it). It came ‘full circle’, as Marlene says. It was literally word for word, scene for scene, from the pilot, except with Addison and her group of friends. What was the actually point of that??
So, overall I didn’t hate it. I actually quite enjoyed it. I was really confused and disappointed when I first finished watching the episode, but after taking some time to process it all I didn’t think it was terrible. I mean, it was still a mess. A huge fucking mess. And it left more questions than answers. But it was a fun and ridiculous ending to the show.
One thing that confused me was that Alex was the name of Spencer’s first boyfriend. Seriously, they could have used a different name that started with A. There are tons of different names! Or did they just forget about him? I always joked that Alex might be A. And hey, Alex did end up being A.D!
Troian did a fantastic job!!! If anyone was going to have a twin, I’m so glad it was Spencer. Troian is a fantastic actress and made it believable. Her accent was a bit off at times but overall Troian was incredible!! She was the saving grace of the episode to be honest.
We all knew Twincer/Spencerietta was confirmed, but a part of me wished it would be something more exciting, like Wren or Melissa. I loved that Wren was a part of it, but it was a missed opportunity not make him and Melissa working together as A/A.D. That would have been amazing! Wren has been my number 1 suspect since the beginning. The thing I’m most upset about in the finale is that Wren is dead and was turned into A FUCKING DIAMOND!! I am so mad. I can forgive lots of things on this show, but not that. That just crossed the line.
There are still so many questions though. What was Ali doing for the 2 years she was ‘dead’? That is one thing I really wanted to know. Did Sara Harvey willing help CeCe or was she kidnapped? Did Melissa have anything to do with A/A.D?? Because from the episode it seems like she didn’t but she was always so sketchy? And how did she know nothing about Alex when she was living with Wren? What ever happened to Eddie Lamb?? What did Bethany’s drawings mean? I was hoping we would learn more about Bethany. Why did Alex impregnate Ali with Emily’s eggs? Was she just a big Emison shipper? I do not understand. We still never found out who Beach Hottie was. And what was the deal with the NAT club? How did Alex make the board game?? Was it Alex with Caleb or did Spaleb actually happen? Did Wren know Archer? How did Alex kill Wren? And most importantly HOW DID THE WINE MUMS GET OUT OF THE BASEMENT??
I’m sure there are many more questions but thats all I can think of right now. Overall I’m actually sad that this is over. It’s been a part of my life 5 years. I’ve wasted so much time searching for clues and theorising. I feel like I’ve grown up with these characters and cast. I am so glad I’m free from this train wreck but a part of me is sad that there won’t be anymore new episodes. I’m going to miss this show. It has frustrated me to no end but I’m sad to say goodbye. This fandom is amazing. We’ve turned this train wreck of a show into memes and inside jokes, and written theories and fan fiction that are so much better than the actual show. This show pretty much makes absolutely no sense. I don’t even know how to explain the premise of this show to others. I wold not recommend watching this show to anyone because in the end it still makes absolutely no sense. But I’m glad I’ve watched it. It was a great experience watching each new episode live. I’ve loved discussing and theorising and making of fun of it with other fans. I feel like no one understands why I love this show. I sometimes wonder myself. But I think it’s partly because it feels like a family. The core of Pretty Little Liars is friendship and I feel like that’s what my relationship with the show is. The fandom is like one big friendship group.
So thank you PLL. Thank you for 5 years of my life I’ll never get back. Thank you for taking me on this rollercoaster of a journey that never really made any sense. Thank you for these characters and for the cast. Thank you for being something that I looked forward to each week. Thank you for being a part of my life. I’ll miss you. You will always have a place in my heart.
“How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

Abby doesn’t know how long she’s been hunched over the toilet bowl, but after what feels a lifetime, her stomach is finally starting to settle down. After taking several deep breaths, she slowly releases her death grip on the bowl before settling down on her bum. Letting out a miserable groan, Abby resolutely tries to ignore the fact that Marcus is still crouching next to her on the ground. He has stopped stroking her back, but he’s still sitting rather close.
“Do you want me to get you something?”, Marcus asks softly, breaking the awkward silence that had descended over them.
Abby weakly shakes her head, “No, I think I’m-”, she starts to reply, but another wave of nausea hits her and she’s doubled over the toilet bowl once more.
Marcus quickly gathers her hair again, but fortunately this time her nausea only lasts for a couple of seconds. As Abby leans back, she gratefully accepts the piece of toilet paper he offers her before wiping her mouth with it.
“Ugh. I’m sorry you had to see this”, she murmurs, feeling her cheeks flush from embarrassment.
