what’s better than this…. just teams being memes

  • *pidge says anything* “shut up you’re like 12″
  • they argue over all noises, not just laser noises
    • “and we’ll turn on the particle barrier and it’ll be like pshwoosh” “actually i think you mean vwooom” “what? that sounds like a lightsaber, it’s totally wooshaaaaa” “oh my god can you guys shut up” “you shut up keith”
    • shiro: “alright guys let’s get back on topic– though it’s definitely whishboom”
  • there are frequent petitions to play hide and seek as a bonding exercise
  • “keith do you have a plan” keith, who very obviously does not have a plan: “uh……. yeah”
  • whenever the team manages to finish a training session together allura swoops in like “wow congratulations paladins!!! you guys are now almost as strong as an altean nine year old”
  • *lance says something stupid* pidge, looking him up and down with disinterest: “………………….anyway”
  • they walk up to people who are Obviously Not Allura and wax poetic about how incredible altean shapeshifting is
  • lance: “i have never done anything wrong ever???”
    • hunk: “I know this and I love you”
  • a lot of latinx people kiss each other on their cheeks casually and one day lance slips up and does it to one of his teammates and do they let it go?? no, never

modern matthias headcanons bc i love death:

- the human embodiment of that “*surrounded by wolves* calm down puppies i can’t pet all of you!” (or smth like that) tumblr meme
- probably definitely works at a dog shelter
- has like three wolfdogs and two huskies
- gives puppies as bday presents
- has a super simple style bc he thinks buying clothes is wasteful so he probably wears the ones he owns to rags and THEN finally succumbs to buying new basics (under nina’s strict supervision)
- ACTUAL GRANDPA who has no idea how a phone works let alone an app/computer program
- BAD with technology in general
- likes documentaries (can literally watch three hours worth of nat georgaphic films about the tundra)
- mostly makes toast and oatmeal for himself bc he treats food the same way as clothes: he needs his meal to be sufficient and nutritious but anything more is extra and unnecessary
- HOWEVER (thanks to @helvr for this headcanon honestly god b l e s s) he has a surprising knack for baking/baked goodies so he can spend hours making pastries for other people
- blushes like a ripe tomato everytime nina so much as hikes up her skirts to smooth out/readjust her leggings or unbuttons one (1) front button of her shirt
- helps homeless kids/orphans with inej and just does sO MUCH GOOD IN THE WORLD OKAY
- totally scandalized by nina’s tv picks bc her fav shows usually have lots of nudity/openly expressed sexual desires and he’s just Shook
- reads lots and lots of self-help books and they really do help
- strives to be a better version of himself EVERY DAY
- looks hella good in jeans 👌 and nina makes sure to tell him on a daily basis (cue the tomato hue)
- spends some weekends at the library, educating himself, reading /even more/ about cultures and beliefs that are foreign to him so he a) broadens his horizon and b) doesn’t offend anyone by being ignorant in some way or other
- you’ve heard of the dad friend, now get ready for the grandpa friend
- the other dregs like to prank him (innocent jokes ofc) and all he ever does is scoff and sigh
- they collectively decide to buy him the same grumpy cat tshirt so he has a total of five (!!!) tshirt that are literally THE SAME
- that is until a package from kuwei arrives and it’s a hand-stitched grumpy cat sweater
- matthias looks into the camera like he’s on the office A LOT
- HIGHKEY think he’d LOVE brooklyn nine nine?? like?? it’s a show?? about justice?? and the importance of diversity?? showing different people from different places/backgrounds who have an incredible team dynamic and whose sole purpose is to fight modern crime??

anonymous asked:

Bartho, help me! I have trouble creating aliens but I feel like a failure of an author for asking for help, yet I just have tried and feel like the aliens I make are dumb or lame. Can you please help me?

anon, you’re very brave. people should ask for help when they need it. that’s what helps you improve.

my first tip is to look around, especially when there’s a lot of artists who love drawing aliens. pick and choose at things you like. changing colors? awesome, keep it. wings? sure, why not? nine eyes? yes, please. feet for hands and hands for feet? love it

tip number two, rationalize it. why does your species have the ability to breathe in the water and above it? “why that’s easy, bartho, they need that ability, because when their waters started getting polluted and to survive, they had to adapt outside of their natural element” awesome, good idea

tip number three, think of the origins and their planet. assuming you did tip number two, and you thought about the type of habitat your creatures live in, you’ve already partially thought about the kind of planet you want them to live on. how did they evolve? 

tip number three, what do they eat? think about their teeth and how many stomachs they have. how do they catch their food? are they hunters, gatherers, scavengers?

tip number four, biology. organs in their body, are they like humans? what about their sexes and genders? how to they raise their young? how many young can they have, at once, and in total?

some other things you can look up are languages, different dialects, their intelligence, their economy, and how advanced their tech is. i recommend checking articles to see what pet peeves readers or other writers have when it comes to sci fi worlds. most times, i see people getting mad at people for making the feminine aliens like feminine humans. like, why would a lizard have boobs if they lay eggs? 

i hope this helps, anon

21 and 32 for Bea!

[Bea! for those who don’t know, Bea is a new OC developed from a writing workshop prompt I had this week. She’s a modern witch who does cursebreaking and rehoming ghosts into a little cabin in the woods. I love her.]

21. Do they have a temper? Are they patient? What are they like when they do lose their temper? She can get a little testy at times, but it takes a lot to make her really angry. In her line of work she has to be very patient–the people that she works with, both living and dead, act out of fear and uncertainty rather than outright malice nine times out of ten. She really loses it over people taking advantage of others, especially those who use a lack of knowledge against people who have no way of knowing better (like trickster spirits who feed on interpersonal chaos).

32. What do they dress like? What sorta shops do they buy clothes from? Do they wear the fashion that they like? What do they wear to sleep? Do they wear makeup? What’s their hair like? Bea dresses kind of alt-normal, mostly thrifted stuff. She has a fondness for old lace and dark colors, circle skirts with petticoats when she’s feeling fancy She usually sleeps in her undies, or a flannel nightgown when it’s cold out. Her hair is short, dark curls in a side part, sometimes pulled up in a half ponytail to keep it out of her way. She wears a ton of rings, most of which are charmed in some way that will help her get through the day. She doesn’t wear a ton of makeup but usually likes colored lip balms and neutral lipstick, a bit of mascara if she’s going out somewhere or has someone to impress. 

I was tagged by @explodingpringlescans, here we go!

Favorite color: I have this very specific color that’s my go-to and it’s like, a dark blueish green? It was my blog color for ages.

Last song I listened to: Downtown Train by Everything but the Girl
Last movie I watched: Red! It was on last night. It’s an action comedy and a fave.
Top three shows: I don’t watch a lot of shows but I really love Supergirl, HIMYM holds a permanent space on this list and then… I’m gonna go with PLL since I’m trying to catch up even though it’s not what it used to be but I still have to see how this damn thing ends 
Top three characters: Oh god this is the hardest question to answer… i’ll go with my 3 Marvel faves since it’s the only fandom where I have a solid top 3 so Tony, Natasha and Bruce.
Top three ships: Depends on if you mean what I’m currently trash for or those ships that will always have a special place but if we’re going with the latter I’m gonna say… brutasha, clex and… cherik. (See? I can ship a popular ship.. it just doesn’t happen very often)

An incomplete list of thoughts on the Gilmore Girls revival

1. Start with Richard’s death– well, not quite.

First, give us a day in Star’s Hollow, a winter’s festival with Taylor freaking out and Luke grumbling and Miss Patty flirting and Kirk toting around his pig– I loved his pig– and Lane’s band playing in the gazebo. Rory, visiting, just got that article published, and it’s on the back of Luke’s menus. Get all of the nostalgia out of the way, in this whirlwind of things going right.

We need that reunion, certainly, that reminder of how much we love this tiny, crazy town and the people who live there. Send Rory, Luke, and Lorelei home down familiar streets, to the house she and Luke rebuilt together, strung up with Christmas lights Lorelei definitely made Luke hang while she ate leftover Halloween candy and called critique from below.

Everything is good. Lorelei woke up that morning smelling snow. Rory is pulling tater tots out of the freezer– “Didn’t you have enough fried nonsense at Kirk’s fried nonsense booth?” “Fried Oreos, not fried potato shreds.” “NONSENSE.”

And then we get the call from Emily, about Richard.

Give us joy, reminders, a setting we recall and love– but then give us plot.

If you look at the bones of the four episodes, Richard haunted all of it. He should, but we shouldn’t have to bury down to the bones to realize that. Start with that– frame it. With Richard’s death set up as a catalyst, rather than backstory, Rory’s erratic behavior makes more intuitive sense throughout that year. The ghost of him is in the forefront of our minds. We watch those happy first few minutes shake, and the things that our kids were only pretending were stable start to fall apart.

The funeral– with Luke playing handyman out of discomfort and a desire to help, with Lorelei staying behind to support her mom and instead getting cornered, drunk and grieving, asked to say something simple and positive about a relationship that was complicated at its best– is now our plot starting to roll forward, as Lorelei and Emily have their falling out. Rory goes home and cancels the lease on her apartment, because she’s hardly ever there, right? When was the last time she was in Brooklyn? It just doesn’t make sense, right? Nothing makes sense anymore.

And everything slowly starts to unravel– Michel is thinking about leaving. Rory goes to London to meet with River Song about the book, and falls into bed with Logan. Her job talk keeps getting pushed back, and when it actually happens they ask about her future and present projects and she stumbles over her tongue. Emily’s words ringing in her ears, Lorelei starts looking into having children again, unsure who wants what or why or when.

This is a story about finding out who you are, and I liked that– the three Gilmore girls, who always thought they knew what they were doing, finding themselves adrift in the aftermath of loss and change.

Is Lorelei supposed to be a mother again? Are she and Luke doing this right– is this what love is supposed to look like, nine years in? Is her inn too small, her ambitions too quiet– if she does not reach for more, will she lose everyone she built this with, one by one? What does she want?

What is Emily supposed to with this empty house? With this portrait looming wall-sized over everything? With the things they had built together because they had wanted them together– what is she supposed to do now?

And Rory, the smart one, the pretty one, the last best hope of the Gilmore clan, the pride of Star’s Hollow– every accomplishment is expected, every failure is “out of character.” The world’s been bending itself to Rory’s will all her life– not even her will, exactly. The world loves her– it protects and favors her but it also pushes things onto her and always has. Her grandfather dies, her book deal falls apart, the website turns her down– who is she supposed to be now?

2. I would have loved to see more of that with our minor characters, too– change, and conflict. It’s been nine years, and it should look like that– I thought that was well done with Paris, with Dean, with Michel. But a lot of other people seemed in frozen in time.

2a. Lane’s gone from infants to prepubescents, and the band looks the same. Have her and the band be writing the spring musical for the elementary school and teaching kids how to strum electrical guitar. Have them have dropped their dreams of touring in exchange for making YouTube videos– nothing’s gone viral, but they have a following and they do weekly Q&A’s while their kids frolic in the background. While Rory paces about Logan or her mom or her grandfather, have Lane be freaking out about turning into her mother after one of her kids has a tantrum about not wanting to go to music lessons. Have Lane be involved and present in her own life. You don’t lose doubts and stress just because you have something that looks like a picket fence. You don’t stop moving.

2b. What the hell is up with Logan? What happened in the last nine years to regress him back to that level of adulterous immaturity? I’m sad to say I believe it of Rory. But the Logan who grew through seasons 6 and 7? I don’t, I really don’t. Either explain it or give us a different story.

Even something just as much as– he and Odette decided on an open relationship, because this is obviously a “dynasty” match by Mitchum. Odette’s in love with a Parisian pastry chef, she and Logan are happy partners in crime, and Rory’s sense of self can still grate at being not quite “the other woman” but definitely Logan’s “dirty little secret.”

2c. And the Life and Death Brigade! Like, I can absolutely believe they stagnated, but I’d have loved some mention dropped that one of them–to his GREAT SHAME–has fallen in love with accounting and works a nine to five. In a cubicle. And he doesn’t even hate it.

And maybe one of them’s fallen in love with a Californian sculptor who doesn’t put up with his shit, and he’s absolutely loyal, barely manages to flirt with anyone all night. They have a Great Dane, out in their home in Monterey, and he walks the pup along the foggy coast every morning before he goes home and makes breakfast for his still-asleep girlfriend.

3. Where did the second half of Paris’s arc go? I wanted her to figure out it wasn’t the marriage that was the problem, it was the stairs, and sell the house. I wanted her and Rory to get drinks every season, while Rory stressed about the eighteen article pitches she had in the fire (did she write anything in those twelve months except a book Lorelei asked her not to?), and Paris tore apart Doyle’s latest script with language slightly kinder than what she used to his face.  

4. There are plenty of things to keep– keep the relationship Jess and Luke have grown into, where Jess makes Luke take a break and sit down and talk when he can tell something’s wrong, where he rips out Luke’s wireless router as a gesture of love, and steals his ballcap.

4b. Keep Lorelei going out to hike the Pacific Crest Trail because she read a book and she wants an epiphany– keep the fact that she never ends up hiking anywhere, and keep her phone call to Emily behind a closed roadside diner, when she tells her the story about her father that she hadn’t been able to give Emily at the funeral.

4c. Lord, keep Emily’s adopting Berta’s whole family and moving to Nantucket and frightening children with gleeful stories of whale murder. It’s not that her life with Richard, as society wife and DAR leader, wasn’t a full and fulfilling and true one– it’s just that that life was theirs, and he is gone. She needed to find something that would give her joy, and she did.

4d. Keep Luke’s Diner unfranchised, and, yes, absolutely, give Lorelei the inheritance for the Dragonfly. She has always been the empire builder. 

4e. Keep Rory turning down Logan’s key. For all I found the details of the arc with Logan absurd, I loved the end of it. That conversation, full of affection and respect– he will be there if she needs him, but she needs not to need him, and he’s gonna let her go. And her going to her grandfather’s study, writing at his desk– I think that was right, too. It went full circle, and I liked that. Rory and Richard’s friendship remains important to me, in his absence or not.

Though Rory’s relationship with grief was much subtler than Emily’s or Lorelei’s (and maybe should have been less subtle…), her grandfather shaped so much of her. She was running for so much of this story, grasping– leaving boxes here and there. She wouldn’t be who she was without Lorelei, but she also wouldn’t be the same without Richard and Emily.

5. But as much as I lovelove the desk, Rory sitting there with the blue light of her Mac lighting up her face in her grandfather’s inner sanctum– I’m pissed she wrote the book.

I was so damn proud of Lorelei for telling Rory “no.” I wanted Rory to respect that, not to talk about how she needed it. I wanted Lorelei to get the boundaries she asked for. It became, as it often does in this show, first about Rory’s desires– not even her needs, just her wants. 

And, more than that– Rory counters Lorelei’s desire for privacy with the argument that this book is the only thing that inspires her right now, the only thing that’s easy. Uh, okay? Why is your ease more important than your mother’s ownership of her own story? I’m a writer, so maybe this pisses me off more than your average viewer– but writing is work. This is not about easy and hard. Writing’s something you pour time and effort into. You write when you’re inspired, when you’re not, when you love the words and when you hate them– you put things down on paper.

And Rory’s not just a writer– she’s someone who’s trying to make a living as a journalist and/or non-fiction author. How on earth is she paying her bills? Did she write a single article that whole year? My god, child– write about lines in NYC. Become a staff member on the website that’s begging for you– and go into your interview with pitches, like a goddamn professional. Did she forget she had to earn things? Rory has this tendency to have things handed to her, and I can never tell if the show knows. Take notes on River Song, the eccentric feminist academic– ask questions instead of doodling. There was a book there, absolutely, but Rory wasn’t putting in the work.

And when Lorelei tells you she doesn’t want her story told, Rory, you listen.

I wanted Rory at that desk, face lit up in the dim light, comfortable in her grandfather’s legacy and love, but I wanted her to be writing something else.

Write about Star’s Hollow, this absurd cast of lovely characters and public shenanigans. There are books and books there– imagine the stories Miss Patty could tell.

Write about Richard, or go up to Nantucket and ask Emily about her life, her loves, her successes and failures and triumphs. In high school Rory once made a piece on asphalt seem fascinating; she can handle pulling some interest out of decades of backstabbing and intrigue in New England upper crusts, especially with Emily “I’ll say bullshit all I like” Gilmore’s help.

Be a goddamn professional, Rory Gilmore. And buy some underwear.

Sasuke’s Conclusion in 699.

“Naruto… Now, I’ve finally remembered the things you used to say… About how that feeling you got when you were together with me must be what it feels like to have a brother… that feeling you were talking about… I think now, I finally get it.” 

“As my journey took me around the world… I would often be reminded of back then… When we were lonely kids starving for love…”

 “But finding nothing but hatred.”

“From there, we went our own separate ways… and we fought… But now as time has passed, I think… That maybe in the same way… The suffering, desires and feelings of my father, mother, and my brother Itachi had passed into me…”

“Perhaps now, I’ll come to know what you feel, your hopes and your pain… Naruto… You never abandoned me… No matter what happened… As much as I would try to close myself off, you kept on closing that distance to me and how I truly felt…”

“By all means, you should have come to hate me for everything I did…”

“And yet, you never stopped regarding me as your friend. Even as I tried my best to destroy that very feeling…”

“As my friend, you fought to stop me…”

“To the point that you lost an arm… And thanks to you, I was saved…” 

“We who used to quibble and fight over every little thing…”

“Are now able to share the pain in each other’s hearts. During my journey around the world, I thought to myself… That this feeling may not exist just between us… But it might apply to even more things… Bigger, greater things… But not everyone is able to do the things you can… And it probably won’t always go as planned either… Just look at how we turned out…”

“And with bigger things… It’ll only get harder… I think it’s a lot like faith. To keep believing, trying and enduring until you finally become able. Because people entrust us to their hopes and rely on us to carry on… Perhaps that is what makes us ninjas.”

Well Sasuke, you two are no longer alone and starved of love; you’ve each found someone who will love and care for you with unwavering loyalty throughout anything that life has to offer.

  • Naruto, you found the shy heiress who saw beyond your label as “The Nine Tails Jinchuuriki”, and acknowledged the beautiful boy within:
  • And Sasuke, you found the kind girl who was the first to notice how broken the “Uchiha Survivor” truly was, and never stopped wanting to ease your suffering:

And now the both of you can entrust your hopes and dreams onto them, and rely on them and your children to carry on… Because that’s what makes them the loving families of Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha.

What a journey it’s been.

'I WANT TO HAVE A BABY WITH A GIRL MATE' Radio One’s Nick Grimshaw talks being broody, hating dating and embracing his thirties

Grimmy is one of the UK’s most eligible gay bachelors and the definition of great company, but the radio host reveals finding love isn’t as easy as it seems [x]

BY NATALIE EDWARDS 23rd October 2016, 12:15 am

NICK Grimshaw looks smitten as he cradles a small and sleepy bundle of joy in his arms.

“It’s like he’s my baby,” Nick proudly grins as he strokes his four-month-old pug-mix pup.

The Radio 1 Breakfast Show presenter, AKA Grimmy, is definitely getting a taste of fatherhood behind the scenes of his shoot today – he’s constantly chasing after the aptly named Stinky Blob – a rescue pup from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home – who’s leaving puddles of wee everywhere, and apologising for his, erm, wind issues.

It’s good practice for parenthood, which is handy, as Nick, 32, admits he’s definitely feeling broody.

“I love kids and all my friends are starting to have kids. I also have nieces and nephews. I think I would like to have a little gayby [a baby with same-sex parents],” he smiles.

“Or I would like to have a baby with one of my girl friends. I haven’t discussed it with them yet, but I would quite like it.

“I looked after one of my friend’s kids last week and it was full-on. It was a lot looking after two dogs, a kid and trying to do some work.”

11 Feminist Teachings Nicki Minaj Has Gifted The World

1. “When you’re a girl, you have to be everything, You have to be dope at what you do, but you have to be super sweet, and you have to be sexy, and you have to be this and you have to be that and you have to be nice, and you have to - it’s like, I can’t be all of those things at once. I’m a human being.”

2. “Maybe your weird is my normal. Who’s to say?”

3.”My advice to women in general: Even if you’re doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want - and don’t allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge.”

4. “You wanna know what scares people? Success. When you don’t make moves and when you don’t climb up the ladder, everybody loves you because you’re not competition.”

5. “I don’t mind being called a weirdo. There are a lot of people in hip-hop who are probably never going to get what I do. But, by just being myself, I end up touching a lot more people who might never have paid much attention to a female rapper.”

6. “Female rappers get it the hardest. You have to be a girl, yet you have to be just as hard as the guys. I think some female rappers get scared out of the business before they can make it.”

7. “Sometimes I want to just pull the off switch, but you can’t because if you go outside, you have to give people your all. You can’t say, ‘Oh, you know what? I’m not feeling good today.’ No. No one’s trying to hear that. When a woman comes up to you and says, 'Hey, my daughter’s your biggest fan. Can we have a picture?’ - you can’t say no.”

8. “It’s not hard to get your way when it’s your way or the highway. People either follow suit or they’re not around. I don’t really like the sound of that, 'cause that sounds like a temper tantrum. I’m just very black and white when it comes to my business. There’s really no gray area.”

9. “As a little girl growing up in Southside Jamaica Queens, if anyone would’ve told me I’d have my own perfume one day, and be able to inspire young black girls everywhere, to go into Macy’s or Nordstrom’s and see their face staring back at them - I wouldn’t believe them.”

10. “I want to show little girls that the possibilities are endless. That’s my goal - to not only do it for myself, but to show them I can do whatever I put my mind to.”

11. “I want people - especially young girls - to know that in life, nothing is going to be based on sex appeal. You’ve got to have something else to go with that.”

Yes, he has his moments, but in the end the only thing he cares about is his ego and controlling others. I know he’s *just* a character on a science fiction show, but there are a lot of people to whom he’s very real. There are a lot of people who have to live in fear because of people like him. That’s why I feel very wary of people who claim that they love Dukat.]

Romantic/ in a relationship Makoto, Rin, Haru, and Nitori headcanons! I'm so glad to see a new free imagine blog. Maybe there will be as many of these for free! as there are for haikyuu! some day.


  • Not what you would call “traditionally” romantic, he still has his own little ways of being romantic. Bringing extra of their favorite food when he makes/packs his lunch, leaving swim practice on time so that he can walk them home after their club ends, small smiles when their eyes met, etc.
  • He doesn’t really care for PDA, so he won’t initiate it. He doesn’t particularly mind though if his partner wants to hold his hand when they’re out together or if they give him little hugs here and there. The only time he’ll get a little flustered is if they kiss him in public.


  • Makoto gets a little sappy when he’s in a relationship or in love. He can’t stop smiling whenever he thinks about his partner. Everyone around him can tell when his mind wanders in his partner’s direction.
  • He likes showing his affection in quiet little ways instead of grand gestures. He’ll give them light touches and kisses when nobody’s looking and send ‘thinking of you’ texts every now and then. One of his favorite things to do is run his fingers through their hair after they’ve had a hard day. He knows that it relaxes them a lot, and they’ll usually fall asleep while leaning against him.


  • The hopeless romantic of the group, but he’ll deny it if anyone calls him out on it. He gets ideas from romantic comedies and the occasional shoujo manga he just happens to leaf through when he goes to buy his monthly sports magazines. These ideas may or may not always play out the way he intended.
  • Rin really likes to do traditional boyfriend things like flowers or his partner’s favorite candy or snack. And because he lives in a dorm, is often busy with swimming practice, and can’t find time for dates often, he makes a point to call his partner every night if for nothing else than to ask how their day was and tell them goodnight and sweet dreams.


  • Ai loves to introduce his partner to people (his friends, his family, his team, etc.). Not because he wants to show off that he’s in a relationship, but because he’s just so proud of his partner who is so wonderful in his eyes.
  • He texts his partner. A lot. Good morning texts, good night texts, thinking of you texts, I love you texts, the whole nine yards. He also likes to send them pictures of things he finds that he thinks they might like. He worries about annoying him, but it only takes a few reassuring words for him to bounce back.

Okay people who say Rose is clingy in a derogatory manner make me want to rip my hair out.

You know what she was? Persistent, immensely courageous (I mean, how hard would it have been to get those three words out? To him, especially. How hard must it have been to risk everything to find a way back to him, when he had never said them and she wasn’t even sure he wanted her back? That’s one colossal step up from “omg should I text him idk if he likes me!?”), and constantly true to her word. She said she would never leave him and she came back over and over and over to prove her point.
Because that’s what you do for the people you love.

And you know what the Doctor was? Alone.

He was a man who’d lost everyone over and over and over, and suddenly there’s this girl who keeps on coming back to him no matter what, who risks her life to keep her promise to him.
Like did you see his face on one side of that wall after they were separated, when he thought he lost her forever? He’s heartbroken yes, but mostly he’s tired, resigned. You can practically hear him thinking, “Why was I stupid enough to think that this time it would really be forever? Every time I love someone I lose them, and here we go again. Why should I expect any different from the universe?”


I don’t think he understood why she did it, but I think he loved her for it.

And I think that’s what finally made him realize that no matter what he had done, he was so inconceivably, impossibly, irrevocably loved.

So sure, call her clingy. Fine. Do it. Be my guest.
But for a man who never seems able to keep the people he loves, for a man who moves so fast that it makes it so hard to hold onto things, for a man who anything permanent and lasting rolls off of like water off a duck’s back and for a man who is literally a walking inadhesive, maybe clingy was exACTLY what he needed.

I don't think I actually like Doctor Who, but I love Doctor Who

I just rewatched all of Russell T. Davies run of Doctor Who, and I’m in the process of finishing Torchwood, and it occurs to me (not for the first time) that I don’t really like Doctor Who.  I mean, I’ve never watched the old ones, but I pretty much gave up on it not too long after Moffat took over.  I’m given to understand that Moffat, despite his rampant sexism, reused plots, overall crappy writing and inherent need to be “special” still more closely replicates Doctor Who than either Nine or Ten ever did.  In essence, “Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey” is essentially a whole lot more the doctor than Ten standing in the rain alone because all his companions had gone.  But see, what I liked about Doctor Who, or at least what I loved about Davies Doctor (and Torchwood) was that it wasn’t about some crazy alien traveling through time and space and meeting up with funny aliens and especially special girls and overly complicated plots.  It was about humans, about people, about plain ordinary extraordinary people who change the world simply by being in it.  It was about fears–and not weeping angels and monsters in the dark.  It was about death and what comes after (nothing, incidentally, just a yawning void) and about not being important (which is rubbish, incidentally, because everyone, everyone is important) and about the simple beauty of the universe.  It was about connections, very real, very honest human connections, and it was about people being people, even when they were selfish, rude and overwhelmed.  They are profoundly about belief (and perhaps god(s) by extension) about how firmly everything is grounded is reality but also how firmly you have to believe.  In humans, in emotions, in friends, in family, in love.  These stories weren’t about the funny aliens or the complicated plots or “scary” monsters.  They were about people, and the funny aliens were just a way of conveying a message, a medium through which they are delivered.  So if you are a Doctor Who fan, then I can understand why Moffat might appeal to you, why the Davies era might have turned you off, why Rose Tyler might be your least favorite companion.  And I’d argue that you aren’t wrong to dislike that time, that while I raise an eyebrow to you overlooking Moffat’s myriad faults I don’t blame you for liking his run.  But I would say that perhaps it’s not so much that you didn’t like Davies as you missed the point of Davies.  Because Davies may not be conventional Doctor Who, but his run of both Doctor Who and Torchwood resonated with me in a way perhaps nothing else has since Battlestar Galactica (and remind me later to remark on why two atheist show runners managed to write the most profoundly religious shows on television today).  Nine and Ten might not be everyone’s doctor, but they are my doctors, and for how ever short his run was, it was….fantastic.

This is daily reminder anon possibly for the second time today, because anon suddenly can't remember if a daily reminder has even been sent today. Whoops. Anyway, this is your daily reminder that you're loverly.

One of these days I am going to combust and it’s going to be because you filled me with too much kindness and love, nonnie. 

P.S. This is also something Stiles would totally do. Maybe Derek says “I love you” first and Stiles’ mind just kind of blows (the combination of Derek saying I love you whilst in a soft Christmas jumper is too much to handle) so he doesn’t say it back, just stares like an open mouthed fish, but by everything that is good and pure and wonderful he does love Derek Jefferson Hale. (”My middle name isn’t Jefferson, Stiles!!”) For the next month, he sends Derek about nine texts a day saying: “I love you….did I tell you that already today? Because I do. More than Star Wars, Derek. That’s a lot of love, okay? MAY THE LOVE BE WITH YOU.”

Meanwhile, Derek is constantly staring at his phone like a goober, a big grin plastered on his face because he’s in love with a dork and he’s never been happier. 

Whenever people talk about YA fiction not being worth reading, I always point to books that prove otherwise: anything by Tamora Pierce, Sabriel and company, the Uglies series, Graceling, Incarceron, and a handful of others. And Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles

I just finished the third book in the series, Cress (the fourth is a prequel that I’ll probably get around to, but I am chomping at the bitfor the fifth installment, Winter, which isn’t coming out until November because the world hates me), and man. This is just such a great series. I love it so much. I’m going to flail under the cut.

I don't agreed, but many people think the end of time was a mess of an episode and a horrible season finale

strongly agree | agree | neutral | disagree | strongly disagree

I think it probably had it’s issues (yay skydiving Ten!), but I think it was a really great episode on the whole, and a good send off for Ten.  Love him or hate him, he was at that point the person most associated with the Doctor who’d started watching from New Who, even if Nine was their Doctor.  I think the plot was good, and I liked that it more or less wrapped up the Time War angst with the broken redemption he got when he sent Gallifrey back, knowing that it was the right thing to do.

The problem a lot of people have with it is that they feel Ten’s tantrum and nostalgia tours were self-indulgent and out of character, which I wholly disagree with.  I think both were warranted, and followed the arc of his character perfectly.  The people who think he was an asshole for saying Wilf wasn’t important totally missed the point.  Ten’s raging at the injustice of the universe at large, at his own personal loss, about his inability to stop any of it from happening despite his unquestionable power, despite even of–or possibly because of–breaking his own moral codes.  He’s angry that after everything he’s done, everything he’s seen, everything he’s capable of, it’s this one man, this one fragile human, who’s going to be his undoing, simply because he can't walk away.  Because Wilf isn’t important…but that means nothing.  Because he’s a person, and he’s a person who was willing to give up himself for another, without even a thought.  Because even at the end he’s telling Ten to leave him.  Ten knew from the start he was going to die…it’s the determined nature of it, the loss of his own power, and his own unyielding sense of honor to fight for people simply because they’re people.

As for his nostalgia tour, I think he’s well within his rights to have a final act with the people he’s cared about, that have proven to care about him, to have that be his last sights and sounds as opposed to the scene of his second condemnation of the Time Lords.

With more hints about a potential KRY album (yaaaaay~), how well do you think it'll do in Korea? Promise You did pretty well in Japan, but there's probably not a big correlation about how well KRY ballads will do in Korea.

I’m not sure tbh. People always argue that Korea loves ballads, but a lot of people also argue that D&E, who released a ballad-type song as their title track, would have done well had it received any attention/promotion at all from SM. And considering it took SM nine years to think, “KRY should finally release an album,” and it seems like their attempt to make up lost revenue from SJ and TVXQ releasing no group albums/going on no huge tours for the next 2-3 years because of enlistment… I don’t know how much promotion they’ll give them. People argue the song speaks for itself, but after the way SJ’s last releases have gone, and same with D&E’s first Korean album, I don’t think a song speaks for itself among the korean public, and you need the public to love a song to have a digital hit (and even though a lot of the songs high on korea’s digital charts are pretty awful, those groups have a brand promoted in korea, so they get a lot of hits just by being bandwagoned, and unfortunately, sj’s ‘brand’ in korea is negative bc of how sm chooses to promote them when sm remembers they exist at all, bc of yyj, etc etc, so they get the opposite reaction and that’s why even knetz have to say, in response to songs like ‘Devil’ that they deem freaking amazing (which it is), “please don’t judge before listening” because apparently this is a new concept, ugh).

I think KRY is going to slay quality wise, anything they sing is going to be damn amazing. But I’m worried because of how SM is choosing to do any releases recently, because of how SM gave no attention to the D&E subunit and if that’s how they’re treating SJ’s subunits, you already know it’s going to have even less attention than what SM did for SJ for this Devil album… But I know SJ fans and anyone who has ever listened to KRY in Japan will probably eat it up, so it’s pretty obvious it’ll do well physically (and they probably will get more attention from their upcoming Asia tour and from that upcoming Seoul concert - I don’t think D&E did any concerts in Korea so they probably also have that in their favor). What also worries me is how close they release KRY to the upcoming EXO subunit because if it’s BCD, I have no doubt SM is going to have it overshadow any SJ subunit release.

And if SM releases the album like they did Kyu’s album, so late in the year that even though it slayed digitally and did pretty well physically, it’ll win no awards because it just won’t qualify, then… :/ :/ :/

Haha, sorry for not really answering your question. I think KRY is guaranteed physical hit, even people who bandwagon hate SJ tend to recognize KRY as damn good vocalists even if they downplay how good they are and ignore the fact that KRY are probably currently the best trio of vocalists in Korea but okay. But you can’t really predict how it’ll do digitally, and you have to consider possible promotion (or more likely, the lack thereof) and the fact that KRY are probably going to be branded ‘Super Junior KRY’ like D&E were, and the bias against Super Junior in Korea is a damn shame and may hinder them which really truly sucks.

The only thing that’s really certain is that the album is probably going to be the most amazing thing released in kpop 2015, whether anyone outside of the fandom ever hears it or not.
