the timing!!

When we were 14, someone very close to me started dating a 29 year-old. We were at that age where we both desperately wanted to be considered adults, and she just seemed so proud and confident. Who was I to question her judgement, even if it made me uneasy and confused? She was an expert at dating, and I’d had an older crush, too. I should be happy for her!

It changed her. It just wasn’t the same between us after that. She tried to grow up too quickly for him, but there wasn’t any going back - even after she left him and realized her mistake, it was like she tried to distance herself from reminders of her childhood. Including her friends. As toddlers, we’d had our own special language, just between the two of us, but after 14, she stopped sharing her secrets with me until we slowly drifted apart. In a few years, we had become strangers.

I wish I’d said something. Done something. *Tried* to do something. She was always stubborn as a bull and would not have listened to me, but maybe after it was over, she would have forgiven me for trying to protect her. I imagine that, if she thinks of me at all now, it’s with a hint of resentment. I failed her enormously. Sure, I was only a kid. But I should have grown up enough to have listened to my instincts and spoken up.

Now that we’ve actually seen the trailer for 2x18. And actually all remembered that Lena has an ex-boyfriend. And apparently they are actually going to make out to some degree (under mind control or no), let’s all remember that Rahul Kohli is an actual sweetheart, probably got on extremely well with Katie (because they’re both nerdy as fuck) and not send him hate via Twitter or Insta during the hiatus (or at any time at all really)? Because that’s rude. He’s nice. Leave him alone. Also remember he has gifted us pictures of actual cryptid Katie McGrath too.

#ThankYouBones Week

Day 12: 1 Bones Cast, final THANK YOU

“In our culture, we all search for closure. But closure is an illusion. Science shows us that the universe is constantly in flux. It’s what allows our friendships and our love to constantly surprise us.” 

“Quantum physicists have postulated that the way we experience time is an illusion, that it doesn’t happen in a linear way. That past and present– in reality, there’s no difference.”

Those good times with Bones are happening now. They will always be happening. And we can keep them alive forever. It’s not goodbye. Bones will live on- through the fans, cast & crew, and 246 brilliant, beautiful, incredible, awe-inspiring episodes. Always

2017 OUAT Vancouver Convention - Jennifer Morrison & Colin O’Donoghue Gold Panel Part 1 (March 26, 2017)

Parallel Lines Who Meet, Lin-Manuel Miranda x Reader

Prompt: Loosely based off of Stephen Sondheim’s musical ‘Company’.

Words: 2,042

Author’s Note: With a midnight re-watch of my first favorite musical, Company, I was inspired to write something loosely inspired by it. Lin is Bobby in this scenario. Ish. If you don’t have the time to sit and watch this lovely production (which includes great stars, like Stephen Colbert!), I recommend at the very least listening to ‘Being Alive’ and ‘Someone is Waiting’’.

Warnings: Negative talk of marriage, divorce. 2k words of me rambling and nothing really happening.

Also, we have hit 3.5k followers! AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!


Happy birthday, Lin!” The group cheered in unison.

The man of the hour stood at the entrance of his apartment, looking on at the scattered party guests, each holding the hand of their significant other. He had been running late for the party in his honor - something that had been intended as a surprise but that he had known about for weeks.

“Thirty-five! You don’t look it!” Pippa cried, lingering by the gift table. She placed a pristine, wrapped box next to the dozen others, “You can return it. I mean, what do you get for the man that has everything?”

“Maybe a wife?” Teased Steven by her side, a giggle escaping his fiancee. Her ring glittered in the dimly lit room as she moved to cover her mouth.

“I better-” Lin pointed the guests all anxiously waiting for their turn with the birthday boy.

“Go, we won’t keep you.”

He was delivered boxed compliments all night, perfectly prepared ahead of time. Thirty-five and you’ve accomplished so much! Thirty-five and you look thirty-two! Thirty-five and look at where you are!

Where he was indeed.

Say it with me:

The showmance edit is NOT SHARNA’S FAULT.

The showmance edit is NOT BONNER’S FAULT.

The showmance edit DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT CAN’T BE REAL.

You do not have to agree with my third point. You don’t. I can be cool with that. But I hope you at least have it in you to agree with the first two. Or even just the first one if that’s really all you can manage. That’s all I ask.
