the way he said 'i know'

Part of the story is this really epic romance between The Joker and Harley Quinn. It’s a fascinating love story because is it love-love? Is it love-hate? There’s a lot of ways to argue what that relationship is and what it means.

Why is The Joker obsessed with her? Does he love her? If he did, could he admit that? I think those are some of the mysteries that are going to be left up to the people watching this film to make those decisions themselves.

ok so i don’t know if y’all noticed this but usually the bb announcer says:

“and will the power of veto save _______ or _______ from eviction”

but this time he said:

“will the power of veto save Bridgette and Frank from eviction”

but the only way both Bridgette and Frank can be safe from eviction is if they win a coup d’etat….

lol stydia isnt fan service but u know what is? sheriff and melissa..

Okay, that may be true, but– consider this. 

Jeff said we’d never get prom (still hope he was lying), so instead we get Sheriff and Melissa’s wedding. Maybe that’s even the way they end the series. Maybe it’s the end of high school, or maybe the end of the last episode skips forward a few years when they’re all visiting from college. I love to imagine the girls dancing together in long dresses and Scott shoving cake in Stiles’ face and Lydia and Stiles slow dancing and Scott and Stiles leaving the party to have a talk with their jackets off and their hands tucked into their pockets, watching the lights from the tent in the distance. 

But my favorite part is thinking about the ceremony itself. 

It’s this small backyard wedding, but everybody is all dressed up and beautiful as they watch Melissa walk down the aisle towards Sheriff. Stiles and Scott are best man and maid of honor, respectively. Lydia and Kira and Malia are all sitting in the audience together in their finery, watching. There’s a close up on Stiles smiling at Lydia and Lydia smiling back at him, this unspoken pact that they’re going to do everything that they can to get here together because they want this too. They want to be happy together for as long as they can be. 

But those three aren’t the only pack members there. Everybody’s there. Isaac sits next to Chris Argent. Liam, Mason, and Hayden are all watching the proceedings with smiles on their faces. Derek and Braeden sit in the back of the venue, with Braeden’s hand on her stomach and Cora looking thoroughly uncomfortable in her finery. Danny is in the back with Ethan, holding hands and watching all of it. 

And Scott McCall is standing at the altar, looking out at all of it. His mom and Stiles’ dad have invited everyone who saved their sons lives countless times. They have invited all of the people who got them here, today, to a time when they would be able to sit in peace in a backyard at sunset and watch two people bind their lives to each other. Throughout the years, Scott has watched death, destruction, and calamity take over Beacon Hills, but he never, not once, gave up hope. 

This moment proves why. Because amidst all of that pain and heartache, sometimes, you get moments like this. You get to watch your mom marry a man who makes her smile so big. You get to look over at your best friend pulling silly faces at the girl who he’s been in love with since he was eight years old– the one who loves him too. And at the end of everything, every disaster, every death, every scream, there is this: there is life. There is something new. There is love. There is a beginning. 

“Do you miss me?” she asked with tears threatening to spill.


“I miss your laugh, I miss how no matter what you’d always pay. I miss the way you hug me like you’re scared to let go. I miss your smell. I miss your constant cheering me on. I miss all our inside jokes. I miss how no matter how much I messed up, you always stayed.” he said with a sad smile.


With the tears running down her face she said, “ You know, I didn’t want to go. I wanted forever and longer with you. I love you so much, but there was no point in me staying for someone who didn’t really love me. You know this, right?”


“I know, darling.

You're the only one I know who'll understand: a reimagining of GoT. Jon Snow's not a bastard but a prince/lord. Needs reinforcements in the war against the white walkers. His advisor Davos explains that the best way to get said alliances is to unite with a neighboring kingdom via marriage. He's got a bff w/ a daughter that he can make arrangements with. Jon's arranged marriage is with a tiny brown sprite with big eyes and dark curls wilder than his own and she's played by Nicole Beharie...

Thing is, they hate each other. Don’t consummate the marriage. All they do is bicker. In fact, he briefly “arrests” her because he sentenced two little orphan boys to the gallows or some such thing for stealing apples and she freed them and found them a home and gave them even more apples without telling him. She runs away a lot. He brings her back. Eventually, they become civil to each other. Then cordial. Then she’s making him laugh and he reads to her at night when the castle’s quiet…

They’re falling in love, but how do you tell the person you’ve been married to for a couple years that you’re in love with them now? So they say nothing, but she scolds him and tends to his wounds when he comes home wounded and one day he brings her back a necklace with a golden pendant in the shape of an apple and then… I can’t stop thinking about this and I don’t know what I’m going to do.

i don’t even watch GoT but would 10000000% watch this 

“When politics is your god, the real God will allow you to worship there, and He will allow you to rot there. Knowing and following Christ is the way and the answer. If you say you believe that knowing and following Christ is the way and the answer, I have a question that will determine if your belief is mere ascent, base emotion, or authentic salvific faith…

Here’s the question: How much time do you spend on your knees every day in mental prayer, vocal prayer, in supplication for our nation? Don’t be fooled. Hell is filled with people who were willing to do many good things but not the one thing necessary that will save souls and nations. St. Alphonsus Ligouri said, “He who prays shall certainly be saved, he who does not pray shall certainly be damned.And what of a nation that does not bend its knees to the King of Kings?

Maybe not "Trauma", but it still likely had an affect

So Narita says that Izaya’s parents’ jobs weren’t the reason he turned out the way he did, but that their absence may have had an effect on his development, and so I did some research on neglect of child affection(or rather affects of parent absence) and at least ten of the signs are throughout the siblings(though especially in Izaya). Needless to say, It’s not normal nor good to leave overseas for long periods of time, leaving a child to take care of younger siblings. And not having fond feelings for parents or anybody in particular is a sign of emotional abuse. He said himself that he didn’t know how to deal with his sisters and he felt guilty for the way they turned out and the influence he had on them. And no matter how you look at it, a child’s development relies on the presence and support of their parents. He had no encouragement to make friends and even Shinra doubts he has anybody to share his true feelings with even today.

And the fact is, emotional abuse/neglect can have a far greater effect than physical abuse in so many ways.

Izaya once said, “It’s not that I’m rude. It’s just that I wasn’t taught to be nice to people I can’t stand.”

Also, considering how Kadota says that Izaya usually doesn’t outright lie, I wonder if parts of the story he told Rio was a reflection of his own possible past with Mikage, where he both greatly omitted and greatly twisted truths, in which something actually did happen with Mikage and one of his parents told him, “Things like that happened.”

He always seems to approach people who he somehow relates to, and can recognize their desires.

He did tell Rio, “We’re all the same”.

He did tell her, “There’s a lot of things I don’t like talking about.”

In volume 9, it actually said:
———-
He liked this place called ‘school’ where time was spent in groups.
———-

Plus, a lack of socialization at home in the past could possibly lead to a desire to (obsessively)want to observe people and experience more. And he desires a mutual connection with people more than anything else(he wants to be needed and be used and appreciated too) while still in a sense is afraid of abandonment or resents it, thus why he got so bitter at Shinra not inviting him to the hot pot party.

Again, children are born hardwired to become attached to caretakers which is critical for adult functioning and the development of interpersonal relationships. Childhood abandonment – real or perceived – causes problems forming secure attachments which can set the stage for poor quality of later relationships. Children who do not form secure attachments to their caregivers face challenges socializing with peers; the way most children learn social behaviors. Fear of abandonment is not found exclusively in childhood and can be seen in adults as well. Some adults who experienced childhood abandonment feel the effects and struggle to form satisfying relationships throughout their lifetime. A lack of a social support network deprives them of resiliency factors that provide protection from stress and a coping mechanism for handling the hardships in life.

Clearly, the child has both physical and emotional needs that the parents have a responsibility to meet. Both are obviously of vital importance. Often, however, a child may be well provided for in a material sense, but utterly deprived of emotional nurturance; this can be regarded as a form of child abuse.

This places the child in a state of psychological conflict, even turmoil.  He may be grateful on the one hand (for having his material needs met), but angry and hurt on the other (due to emotional deprivation).

Signs and types of psychological neglect:

1. Child is frequently unsupervised or left alone or allowed to play in unsafe situations and environments.
2. Role reversal amongst siblings.(don’t get me started on Kururi and Mairu)
3. Parents not encouraging child to make friends. He remained in a withdrawn state all the way up into middle school when he met Shinra. And Shinra was quoted to be the first one to see through Izaya, and he was also the first person to be persistent with Izaya. Even his parents didn’t know him, and he obviously felt out of place, considering that he didn’t say things because it would supposedly sound “less than tactful”.
4. Child having poor attendance or showing up late.(Nakura says that Izaya was hardly in school)
5. Gambling.
6. Lack of self-control.
7. (Desperately?)seeks affection
8. A decrease in school performance or loss of interest in school.
9. Avoidance of recreational activities.


 A child with insecure attachment or an attachment disorder lacks the skills for building meaningful relationships.

Control issues- Most children with reactive attachment disorder go to great lengths to remain in control and avoid feeling helpless. They are often disobedient, defiant, and argumentative.

Anger problems- Anger may be expressed directly, in tantrums or acting out, or through manipulative, passive-aggressive behavior. Children with reactive attachment disorder may hide their anger in socially acceptable actions, like giving a high five that hurts or hugging someone too hard.

Difficulty showing genuine care and affection- For example, children with reactive attachment disorder may act inappropriately affectionate with strangers while displaying little or no affection towards their parents.

An underdeveloped conscience-
Children with reactive attachment disorder may act like they don’t have a conscience and fail to show guilt, regret, or remorse after behaving badly.

Almost everyone realizes that what happens to us in childhood has an effect upon who we become as adults.  The good and the bad: awards, accomplishments, mistreatment or abuse.  It all has an impact.

But there is another factor from childhood which has an equal or even greater effect than childhood events, like awards, mistreatment or abuse.  This is a factor that people can’t see or remember.  It’s invisible.  I call it Emotional Neglect.

Emotional Neglect is a parent’s failure to respond enough to a child’s emotional needs.

Emotional Neglect is, in some ways, the opposite of mistreatment and abuse.  Whereas mistreatment and abuse are parental acts, Emotional Neglect is a parent’s failure to act.  It’s a failure to notice, attend to, or respond appropriately to a child’s feelings.  Because it’s an act of omission, it’s not visible, noticeable or memorable.  Emotional Neglect is the white space in the family picture; the background rather than the foreground. It is insidious and overlooked while it does its silent damage to people’s lives.

Children who are emotionally neglected then grow up to have a particular set of struggles.  Because their emotions were not validated as children, they may have difficulty knowing and trusting their own emotions as adults.  They may have difficulty understanding their own feelings, as well as others’.  Because an important part of themselves (their emotional self) has been denied, they may find themselves feeling disconnected, unfulfilled or empty.  They may have difficulty trusting or relying upon others.  Many describe feeling that they are different from other people; like something is wrong with them, but they’re not sure what it is.

Another way that parents can unwittingly emotionally neglect their child is to fail to give him the structure and rules to live by, like consequences and discipline.  As a result, the emotionally neglected often struggle with self-discipline as adults.

Whatever the level of parental failure, the emotionally neglected have no childhood memories to explain their difficulties. So, too often, they blame themselves.

To this day, Emotional Neglect has been overlooked. Because it’s invisible, unmemorable, and the absence of something (emotional validation), It has been greatly overshadowed by more visible, but also worthy topics, like childhood events, abuse, or trauma.

provide emotional support that oneshould provide, given one’s relationship to the other. Thus it is thought that a parent emotionally neglects a child when the parent fails to show the child the level of affection or attention that, as a parent, she should (even when she may be providing for the physical needs of the child such as food, health care, clothing, and shelter)

Emotional neglect is also distinct from emotional abuse. Emotional abuse (as distinct from physical abuse) involves abusive commissions, that is, doingthings to another that can be emotionally hurtful or traumatizing (for example, name-calling, badgering, or constantly complaining); whereas emotional neglect involves neglectful omissions, that is, omitting to do things that tend to promote emotional well-being.

((((Below is an excerpt from Dr. Jonice Webb, who has a PhD in clinical psychology and has been licensed to practice since 1991. Dr. Webb is the author of the new self-help book Running on Empty: Overcome Your Childhood Emotional Neglect. People who have been emotionally neglected can either develop a personality disorder or become involved with people who have a personality disorder.))))

A child feels sad, and no one asks her, “What’s wrong?”

An upset child’s need for comforting goes unnoticed by his parents.

A child’s feelings of hurt are misinterpreted as willful misbehavior.

No one asks a child, “What do you want?”

A child’s feisty nature goes unnoticed and unchecked by his parents.

Most likely, there is not a child in the history of the world who has not experienced some or all of these here and there. But what happens when a child experiences all of the above, and more, and often?

None of these incidents are abusive acts. None involves parental mistreatment or malice. None leaves the child hungry or cold. None fits the definition of “trauma.” Even a loving parent might fail his child in these ways. And yet I have discovered that when a child goes through enough of these types of parental failures, she will experience tremendous effects years later in adulthood.

A child whose feelings are too often unnoticed, ignored, or misinterpreted by her parents receives a powerful, even if unintended, message from them: “Your feelings don’t matter,” “Your feelings are wrong,” or even “Your feelings are unacceptable.”

Children are adaptive little beings who respond deeply to their parents’ reactions. A child who receives any of these messages enough from his parents will naturally adapt by pushing his feelings down and away so that they are not visible to others. He may push them so far away that they are not visible even to himself.

I have given a name to this process: Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN). Childhood Emotional Neglect happens when a parent fails to notice or respond enough to a child’s emotional needs.

Notice that a parent’s failure to respond is not an event that happens to a child. Instead, it’s something that fails to happen for a child. Because CEN is not an event, it’s invisible, intangible, and unmemorable. It goes virtually unnoticed by both child and parent. A hundred people could be watching an instance of CEN and not one of them would notice.

Because of this, I have seen that the vast majority of people who grew up with CEN have no memory of it. As adults, they are baffled by the source of their struggles. They may look back upon a childhood in which they were loved, and in which all of their material needs were met, and see nothing wrong.

Yet CEN has a profound effect upon how a child will feel and function in adulthood. As a therapist, I have noticed a particular, identifiable pattern of struggles in adults who experienced Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN) as a child. I have identified 10, which fall into two main categories:

1. Self-care: People who did not receive enough emotional nurturance, discipline, soothing or compassion when they were growing up have great difficulty providing all of these things for themselves as adults. People with CEN struggle with prioritizing their own needs (and sometimes have difficulty knowing what their own needs are), making themselves do things they don’t want to do (self-discipline), and forgiving themselves for their own mistakes  or challenges (self-compassion). Indeed, I have seen that people with CEN are typically far harder on themselves than they are on others.

2. Emotional awareness and knowledge: When you grow up with your emotions pushed away, you have little opportunity to learn how to tolerate, recognize, cope with, interpret, manage and express your emotions. So CEN folks tend to struggle with all of these things. In addition, I have seen that they often actually feel the absence of the feelings they’ve pushed away.

Furthermore, a person who is considered to be a sociopath has developed behaviors that violate the rights of others. Often these are criminal in nature. The “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition” (DSM-IV) describes some of these behaviors as failing to conform to society’s rules, deceitfulness, impulsiveness, reckless endangerment of self or others, and a lack of remorse. This behavior falls under a condition called Antisocial Personality Disorder. Some of the causes for this disorder can be traced to childhood.

Children who were abused by their parents or caretakers may suffer serious consequences later in life. The chance of becoming a sociopath increases when a child is subjected to this type of mistreatment. A child who has distant and uncaring parents is also at risk. Donald Black, M.D., of PsychCentral explains that children with this type of care-taking often fail to form attachments to their parents or caretakers, making it more difficult to form these bonds with others later in life. Parents who are unavailable often provide little supervision or rules. This results in a child who hasn’t learned the importance of following rules, whether at home, school or in society. Abusive, neglectful or absent parents fail to be good role models for the child to follow into adulthood. Children who constantly move from home to home, such as in foster care, are also at risk due to the lack of attachment to others.

Young children who experience significant caregiver abandonment, neglect, and/or abuse (“trauma”) survive by developing a fragmented personality. This causes a protective "false self" which shapes their perceptions, emotions, and behavior. Depending on many factors, false selves cause up to five psychological injuries(I’m only listing relevant ones.)

1)  Personality fragmenting and living from a false self.
This wound causes all five other injuries. Positron Emission Tomography (PET) brain-scans suggest that normal personalities are composed of a group of semi-independent subselves or parts(brain regions). Each subself has unique talents, limitations, and goals. When upset personality parts don’t know or trust the resident true Self (capital “S”), they take control like disgruntled rookies overpowering the coach and trying to lead a professional sports team.

This results in the loss of the Self’s leadership, vision, talents, and wisdom, and causes impulsive, unwise short-term decisions. People ruled by a false self most of their lives aren’t aware of it, and accept false-self behavioral symptoms as normal.

When your true self is free to lead, you’ll typically feel a mix of calm, centered, grounded, “light,” alive, alert, aware, “up,” focused, purposeful, compassionate, strong, resilient, confident, and realistically optimistic - even in conflict or uproar. When your Self is disabled,you feel some mix of the opposite emotions.

 False-self dominance causes up to five other psychological wounds:

-Excessive (“irrational”)anxiety, fears, and terrors of criticism, rejections, abandonment, the unknown, failure (in someone’s view), success, and/or intense emotions (e.g. confusion, overwhelm, intimacy, and interpersonal conflict. Typical symptoms: compulsive worrying, chronic hesitance, doubt, and timidity, excessive caution, difficulty making decisions, relationship addiction, (codependency) or excessive independence and social isolation (“distancing”).

-Trust disorders: a reflexive reluctance to trust safe people, or repeatedly overtrusting abusive, self-centered, or hurtful people, despite painful betrayals. Another symptom of this fourth wound is persistent self-distrust: constantly doubting or second-guessing your own feelings, thoughts, perceptions, opinions, and needs. Another sign of this wound is skepticism or rejection of a benign, accessible Higher Power. Starting in infancy, distrusts are learned from adult abandonment, neglect, and abuse.

  One of many symptoms of this widespread psychological wound is denial of …these wounds (“I'm not 'ruled by a false self,’ and I sure don’t have these so-called wounds!”)(“I’ve always lived this way,” said Izaya before punching a telephone pole :P).

The effects of these wounds (“I don’t have too many of these symptoms”), and …the wounds’ origin (“My childhood nurturance was normal and fine!”)

- A disabled trueself and excessive guilt + shame + distortions + distrusts promote…

- Difficulty feeling normal emotions, empathizing, and bonding with one’s self, some or all other people, and/or a benign Higher Power.

Typical symptoms include:

-Chronic social isolation or consistently superficial relationships;

-Being judged as cold, intellectual, distant, superficial, phony, unempathic, insensitive, self-centered, and egotistical; 

-Chronic depression or frantic busy-ness (“type-A behavior”);

-A series of approach-avoid relationships and/or divorces, or never committing to a mate;

-Vehement or passive atheism or spiritual indifference; and …

-Partners and children not feeling loved by the wounded person, despite sincere assurances.

I think the evidence is there, and childhood ‘neglect’ is only recently really being recognized as damaging to children in Japan. Japanese parents are very hard working, and often don’t have time for their kids, but with not just one, but both of them, constantly traveling over seas, that would be extremely lonely, even if my material needs were being met.

“You know, you could always tell Y/N how you feel,” said Jim as he casually took a bite into the apple. He knew his carefree attitude towards the subject would rile his friend up to no end. Possibly even make him more inclined to tell you the truth. “Pretty sure she feels the same way.” 

“Pretty sure? That’s all you’ve got? I’m gonna need a bit more evidence than that, Jim. I’m a Doctor not a mind reader!” He replied grumpily as he turned back to his station. 

Jim sighed to himself, he was stuck in the middle. Both you and Bones had told him in secret that you liked the other. Well, it took a lot more effort to get it out of the good Doctor of course. He just wanted to see his best friends happy.

I’ve wanted to shave my hair really short for years. I never did it because my husband was very hesitant about the idea. Not in a bullying, “No wife of mine,” kind of way, but you know how fragile masculinity can be, and he’s my husband and I don’t want to fight with him or make him feel bad about something so meaningless and shallow, so I just let it go. (And tbh I wasn’t sure about it myself.)

Anyway, in the last year, his opinion has changed and I have shaved my hair off. What made the difference? Instead of saying, “I want to shave all my hair” I told him, “I want hair like Furiosa or Negasonic Teenage Warhead.” When I was able to say it that way, he didn’t think, “weird bald wife” or “Britney having a breakdown” he thought, “awesome badass wife.”

I’m just so happy we’re getting more variation in the presentation of women in media. More women, and more kinds of women and it just makes me so happy and my head is so much cooler now that it is shaved.

Husband calls me Negasonic Middle-aged Warhead.

58, with Peter Maximoff mate? Pretty please? C:

Peter Maximoff + things you were afraid to say

Peter gazed at you from across the room as you laughed with Jean, Kurt and Jubilee. He admired everything about you, from the way you moved to the way you talked; it wounded him to know that he’d never be with you.

“Just go talk to them, man,” Scott said, appearing at Peter’s side. Peter didn’t even try to pretend as though he didn’t know what Scott was talking about – everyone knew that Peter was completely in love with you.

“I can’t.” He sighed. “I just –“

“Just what?” Scott questioned. When Peter didn’t respond, Scott continued, “There’ll never be a right time to tell someone how you feel about them. You just gotta do it.”

Peter swallowed thickly, before giving his friend a brief nod. He began to walk towards you hesitantly, curling his hands into fists to prevent them from shaking.

You smiled when you saw Peter approaching. “Hey,” he said nervously, “Can I, er, speak with you? Alone …”

“Okay, sure.” You looked back at your friends as you followed Peter towards a tree nearby, noticing them exchanging what seemed to be knowing glances. Perplexed, you turned back to face Peter. “So, what’s up?”

“I … Don’t really know how to tell you this,” he began.

You panicked, then. “Has something happened?”

“No, no,” Peter said briskly, “It’s nothing like that. It’s just … I see you, Y/N. From across the room, and all I can think about is how much I want to be with you.”

“Peter, we’re friends, you know you can come and talk to me whenever you like,” you said, completely oblivious to what he was trying to tell you.

“No, I mean –“ He took a deep breath, finally unclenching his fists. “With you. Together. I-I’m in love with you, Y/N.”

You stared at Peter blankly for a few moments, him anxiously awaiting your response, before a wide smile broke out across your face. “Well, at least I now know why you’ve been acting so strange lately.”

“But … What do you think about it?” he asked, laughing nervously.

You wrapped your arms around his neck, planting a kiss on his cheek. “I think I’ve been wanting you to say that for a very long time.”

Peter grinned. “Really?”

“Really.”

“So does that mean I can finally take you out on a date?” he asked, exuberant.

“I’d be a little disappointed if you didn’t,” you replied, smiling at the look of utter delight on Peter’s face. “How does tomorrow at eight sound?”

“Fantastic.”

STOOD UP {part 10; Namjoon}

Yoongi and I talked as I began to unpack things in my room. It was strange for me to trust in someone so easily, but here was a guy that helped me when I was scared and alone. I looked at my arm, he didn’t say anything. 

Grabbing my charger, I plugged my phone into the wall. Yoongi sat down on the chair in the corner on my room as I hovered over the dead piece of technology. 

Who are you supposed to meet? He looked at me expectantly as I nervously rubbed my arm. My soulmate. He gave me a puzzled look as I went into my explanation. 

Well I didn’t really believe in them because whenever I would write to him, he wouldn’t respond, but then one day he wrote to me. Something simple like hello. The next thing I know, we are talking almost every day. We exchanged numbers, but he never told me his name, he said that it would change the way I treated him. So then he wanted me to fly all the way out here, for what? Just to stand me up? 

I laughed bitterly as my phone finally began to restart. I looked at Yoongi to see his mouth practically hitting the floor. What? 

Namjoon sat in the car on his way to drop off his ex. She had bothered the crew enough that they left Yoongi with the girl from baggage claim. His ex continued to talk about some stupid gossip article when Namjoon’s phone buzzed. 

“No better way to start the day than having a guy give you this gem of a pickup line. I hope you like dragons, because imma be dragon my balls across your face tonight. Yeah, so that happened to me. N-Not the balls! I mean, he just said that, and I didn’t know how to react so I spoke in Spanish, and I ran.”

I don’t know of another way to end Lasciel’s influence, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t one out there. If you should change your mind about the coin, Harry, if you want to get rid of it, I promise that I’ll be there for you.“ 

"Thank you,” I said, and meant it.

His expression grew more sober. “And if you should fall to temptation. If you should embrace the Fallen or become ensnared by its will…” He touched the hilt of the great sword, and his face became bedrock granite, Old Testament determination that made Morgan’s fanaticism look like a wisp of steam.

“If you change. I will also be there.

I not sure if I said this already, but how about cute fluff about Hanzo, McCree and 67 walking in s/o who's supposed to be working but instead singing awfully and dancing without them noticing?

Nope I ha my gotten this ask before!! Thank you for sending it in!!

Hanzo

- he would be a bit surprised but loosen up and smile seeing them so happy

- he would cough to get their attention and say “having fun ____?” Not in a mean way just to kind of tease them a bit because he knows they know they should be working

- would just smile warmly seeing them get embarrassed and ruffle their hair because he knows how boring work can be and tell them that he will help out or even do some while they continue to have fun

- he may be pretty strict but he knows how to relax a little

McCree

- he would smile like a dork and lean on the door frame arms crossed and say “Hey Darlin how come
I wasn’t invited to the party?” To catch them off guard and would come over and give them a hug and kiss on the head and say smiling with a eyebrow raised “I’m just teasin but really shouldn’t you be gettin your ass workin instead of dancing?”

- McCree would just tease them more and say that it was cute and wouldn’t let go of it especially if they put up a fight to defend themselves or are embarrassed

- he might try to dance with him a bit pulling them against him and ask if they know how to square dance and would take the time to show them a bit of they don’t know and want to but if they aren’t up for it he would say “oh ok Darlin I’ll let ya off the hook but only if you’ll let me teach you some other time~”

Soldier 76

- at first he would be a bit annoyed because the work needs to get done but when he sees them smile and see how much fun they are having he will lighten up and just watch for a minute

- when they do finally notice he is there he will laugh a bit and mention how he never knew they had this much energy and tell them that they are cute

- would ask them why they are never that energetic around him and tell them
Not to be embarrassed and that he likes seeing them so happy

- would gently encourage them to get back to work and that he will make dinner tonight so it’ll be ready for when they are done and say that they can do something fun as well

A Florida football player reportedly stopped a sexual assault behind Gainesville bar

The girl was basically unconscious,“ Garcia said. "So I know there was no way she could be giving consent.”

Garcia says he approached the suspect, a 34-year-old man named Christopher Shaw, and grabbed his shoulders, telling him to stop.

Shaw reportedly became angry and attacked Garcia, throwing several punches before fleeing the scene.

The police have arrested Shaw on sexual battery charges against the 19-year-old woman. Per First Coast News, authorities are investigating the suspect and believe he may have committed other such crimes before.

A native of Miami, Florida, Garcia says the crime he witnessed goes against everything he stands for.

“I hold strong moral values and I don’t think anyone should be taken advantage of in that kind of way.”

AOS SDCC 2016 Theory Breakdown

How we doing fandom?   It has been a Glorious comic con has it not?  Huge kudos to everyone for sharing and posting things as we find them.  No doubt more will come out as more videos and articles come out through the week.  But for now I imagine this is how most of the Fandom looks right now….I know the theory train is here…

So we had lots of amazing moments from the con, but where do our theories stand.  There wasn’t much in the way of spoilers but we did get some little nuggets.  

The New Director:   I have been ALL over the place with this one this weekend.  I was almost positive it wasn’t May but going back through everything……

  • We now know that Coulson stepped down.  And in a previous meta, I said that if he did that, if he got to pick his successor, that May’s stock went up.  
  • We learned “They” AKA the Government didn’t think Coulson could do the job anymore.  Couldn’t put his feelings aside….we called that too.  He is going to be so worried about/wrapped up in finding the “I don’t want to be found Daisy”.  
  • The cast says they still dont’ know who the new Director is.  Either they are lying or its not revealed in the first episode.  I think it will be a bit of musical chairs and fake us out.   But.  The ONLY one they didn’t outright deny in ANY of the interviews this weekend was May.  We can rule out Mack and Coulson.  And they ruled out Fitz and Simmons in multiple panels.  No one ever said no when May’s name came up.  
  • In the Women of Marvel Panel Ann said May was getting a bit of an upgrade this year and long legs.   And that makes of think of how Agent Weaver and Victoria Hand dressed.  
    • The other option for May with this comment is she is getting more of a Supersuit along the lines of Daisy/Mockingbird.  
  • At this point the New Director will be May or a government lackey.  

Ghost Rider:  Way to go us!   We did indeed call this and the correct incarnation.

  • They are also going to the Magic route with him.   So that will be fun to see how they do with it.  I stand by it didn’t really work on Arrow last season but have faith that the AOS team will do better.  
  • DAISY is indeed our link/in.  It might not be through Cal/Hyde but they did say Daisy will run across Robbie in her vigilante run.  And I can see this too, there are many ways for them to cross paths.  IE him trying to stop her or her trying to stop him.   Both going after the same target. 
  • They teased a Daisy/Robbie Romance….which we will have to wait and see if they age this version of Robbie.  If he is in High School then I stand by Daisy/James….if they age Robbie it looks like we have a new ship coming.   Jed said on the main panel Daisy was going to eventually get another love interest.  
  • Robbie will be in Ep 1, the cast as met him.  It remains to be seen how long until we see him as Ghost Rider…but based on tweets from Friday I’m guessing it won’t be long.  

Catch Me If You Can Daisy:   

  • Confirmed that as we though Daisy DOES NOT want to be found.
  • Confirmed she has run and is staying away to protect everyone.
  • Confirmed she’s going back to the Skye we first met and is possible in a van again.
  • There is MORE to Daisy’s targets than it seems.  I think this means that she is putting her hacking skills to good use and likely going after targets that are funding groups like the Watchdogs or Hydra stragglers.  We could see a Robin Hood kind of thing and she is helping Inhumans hide from Shield and the Accords.  
  • Confirmed Daisy will be in a dark place and struggling.
  • I do think it will be a bit before we see her back with Shield and/or the Secret Warriors.  That doesn’t mean that we won’t get some moments where the team does catch up with her and tries to talk her into coming home.  Coulson and/or Mack my top picks to get to her first.   If she seeks out some of the team my pick is Fitzsimmons.

Mackelena:

  • “Yeah I think that’s happening”…..literally all we need!
  • And the Shotgun Ax will be back!

Fitzsimmons:  I know pretty much everyone is on the floor with this one.  I mean so many gifts!

  • LIVING TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  My mind kind of short circuted after that little bit and I had to re watch the interview.  I am leaning to like they have their own house, apartment, scottage….but it it could also mean they are sharing a bunk on base.  
  • THEY WENT ON HOLIDAY!   I am guessing we get an Olicity tease with this where when we see the new love nest we will see pics from said holiday.   Tell me where and when and I am down for the 4 hour slide show  I’ll bring the popcorn.  
  • They ware very much in a relationship, in love, and learning to be a couple.  AKA EVERYTHING WE FREAKING WANTED!   And SUFFERED immensely to get. 
  • We are in for The Scene TM…2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0….  Seriously I lost track of how many times someone mentioned sexy times and Fitzsimmons.  Even Iain (not on coffee) was talking about it.  I was pretty sure that we’d get one in 4.01…but now it sounds like we may get even more than that.   
  • So a lot of them this season will be learning how to live, work, and love each other through everything.   
  • Aside from sexy times….babies came up quite a bit too.  I am not ruling out a Fitzsimmons pregnancy this season.   Top pick is they find out about MSF when all heck is breaking loose and delivering in the Season….sigh….possibly series finale this spring.  
  • They will be wrapped up with Radcliffe and the LMD storyline as we thought.  
  • We still can’t tell if they are with Shield or not. But Liz did say she might get a sparkly dress of her own!!!! Cue another coronary. I see Radcliffe showing fitzsimmons off at fancy parties.

Radcliffe:

  • Will be a regular this season….Hazzah!
  • His casting was very deliberate.   They wanted him specifically.  They wanted the Fitz/Radcliffe dynamic.
  • Dadcliffe is SO on the table.
    • Bio Dad:  If he he we will start to see hints like from Season 1 where they teased that Coulson and/or May were Daisy’s parents.  Peppered through a few eps.  If he is Bio Dad I picture the baddies figuring it out first.
    • Surrogate Dad:  Iain commented on how Fitz/Radcliffe were very much alike.  Radcliffe could see him as the son he never had.  We have already seen him oogle Fitz’s work.  Fitz could enjoy having a proper mentor figure again.
  • I get the feel we might see a difference side of Radcliffe.  
  • Jed reiterated that his heart is in the right place and he’s a good guy. 

LMD’s:

  • Are so happening!
  • Iain and Liz both said they were something Fitzsimmons would be interested in working on.
  • Iain said Fitz would if it was going to help and protect people.
  • I still stand by they (Fitzsimmons/Radcliffe) will start them to help people, do good, and its going to get hijacked or corrupted somehow.  

Okay if I missed anything its because I’m totally exhausted.  HUGE thank you to everyone that tagged me @blake-wyatt @jessiecrimefighter and @fitzsimmonsavengers for keeping me in the loop despite my condition.  

We owe a huge THANK YOU to the cast.  I was exhausted trying to keep up with them and can’t imagine how they feel after running from interview to interview to interview to interview all weekend.  I hope they all get some well deserved rest!

Was there something that stood out to you?   Send me an Ask!

1. What is your favorite fic you have under your belt?

I have favorites for different reasons. My favorite type of fic is an if they lived au so anything in that universe (The Flip Side) is a favorite. My favorite sentimental fic is Cricket Bats & Fireflies because wartime angst. 

But! Provisionally Yours has (I never would have said this a year ago, or even six months ago) wormed its way into my heart because it’s the one I’ve put the most effort into and the one I’m most proud of.

2. What is your favorite snippet of dialogue?

Kristina, do you know how long it took me to craft this:

“Dame Dursley,” Sirius said, “doe allow me to compliment the venison.“

James’s mouth twitched. He’d known what was coming, sure—had known since he’d seen venison on the menu. His irritation didn’t prevent him from raising his own glass in salute. “To die fur.”

"Staggeringly delicious,” Evans added.

A pause, then Sirius raised his glass to Evans and inclined his head. “Excellent point, deer lady.”

“Indeed,” James said, “I’m rarely so fawned of such a tough cut—”

"The chef clearly put his full hart into preparation,” Sirius finished.

“He’s a capital fallow,” James agreed.

“I herd otherwise, gentlemen,” she said. “You see, our chef is a fine lady.”

Five minutes. That’s it. The hardest part was that I had to make the chef a woman to make it fit. And it’s absolutely ridiculous but I love it.

15. Give us a snippet of something from your WiPs!

“So, he lists off our offenses—”

Sirius ticks off offenses with his finger, giving a nasally impression of the stick up his arse officer. “Helmets, speeding, failure to stop.”

“And he asks for our names, Evans.”

“And did you oblige?” she asks, unable to curb her curiosity.

James nods. “We, dutiful citizens, give him several.”

“Of course,” Evans says, snorting. “And which name did you give him?”

Sirius says, “Wilberforce, Gertrude—”

“No, it was Bathsheba, Padfoot.”

“You sure, mate?”

“Definitely. And of course, we gave him Elvendork.”
