there was supposed to be more to this picture but then i remembered i'm lazy

 You know what?

FUCK THE WRITERS.

Generally, I try to give people the benefit of the doubt but REALLY??? You set up this whole arc, you make us wait till the last second to get Fitz and Jemma face to face, you make Aida scared to let him see her, you talk constantly about how strong their bond is and then you do that??

In the final defining moment, you don’t let him not remember, even as he shoots her, even as he makes her beg him for his life and you make bloody Radcliffe the one that saves him?

That’s just plain and simple bullshit. I have not felt this angry at the show since Jemma kissed spacerando. 

This whole arc was set up to be them breaking through to people. It was the PERFECT time to make Fitz remember her. We saw how we reacted to the picture and when they locked eyes. “You are more than your programing”

 BUT I GUESS NONE OF THAT MATTERS. The writers can talk about their bond all they want but it’s clear that it doesn’t actually mean anything to them. It’s just bait for the fans. 

This whole moment just cheapens their entire bond and relationship. It takes away an important moment from them as characters! I frankly have no idea how Fitz is going to deal with everything at this point because there was no redemption for him there.

If they would have given them that moment it would have made everything so much better. It would have helped Fitz know that he is a good person through it all, that, when it truly mattered, he broke through and reverted to his old self. it would have made clear the strength of their bond, shown that truly nothing can stand between them. And it would have paved the way for their paths to healing.  They would have been able to work together, to come to terms together with what he had done. 

Now, Fitz is completely broken. How he is supposed to look her in the eyes now? When both him and his LMD hurt her like that? Jemma is broken. Even though she knew that it wasn’t her Fitz, the pain of it will still be there. How is she supposed to believe in their bond anyone after this? And I honestly have no  idea what happens now. I guess this is another one of those situations that gets swept under the rug because the writers don’t care enough about Fitzsimmons to fix it. 

Also can we talk about how, when he gets out, he doesn’t even mention Jemma? Really? That just cheapens the whole thing even more.

I will never forgive them for this to be quite honest. Never let me hear from the writers again how important they are to the show. How strong their bond is. Whatever, in the end, you don’t write like that.  I’ll keep watching but this season has not been whatever the hell payoff they keep talking about. We never got to see Fitzsimmons together and now, when we finally think we’re going to get some payoff, we get this. 

Nothing but a cheap ploy and a man who has no right to stealing the spotlight. Disgusting and lazy writing. 

(And, just saying, if there is any indication at all that Fitz has any feelings about AIDA in the real world, I’ll flip an entire country over.)

Miraculous Ladybug/Adrienette/OT4/Fic Rec

Okay, with the semester coming to its end, my schedule suddenly went from “24-hours-a-day-is-not-enough” to “putsa-i’ve-got-24-hours-free” and sooo I decided to share with you guys my all time mlb fanfic faves. 

No seriously, I have a folder in my lapitapi dedicated to ao3 fics and categorized into diff. fandoms. The MLB one has a rather large amount of pdf in it lol. If you’re bored like me and want to read some fics, here you go:

(In no particular order)

Heartstrings by taylertot 

one of marinette’s rare unlucky days turns into something treacherous. thanks to a certain cat, the real danger passes, but there are other things to be more afraid of. her heart, for example, might be one of them.

comments: this fic is like one of the must reads and must knows in the fandom. It’s been here for as long as I can remember, prolly the origins to the fanfic of the fandom

The Ladybugs and the Bees by  BullySquadess

The Miraculous Ladybug and Chat Noir have survived many things together. Monsters, curses, hoards of pigeons…they’ve seen it all. But how will they handle one of life’s biggest challenges? ((What started as an awkward little puberty fic has slowly morphed into LadyNoir SIN)) 

comments: it says sin and it definitely is sin. You have been warned. I’ll see you in hell na lang

Tendencies Series by KryallaOrchid

Miraculous have side effects. From pats becoming a necessity to eating flowers, follow Adrien and Marinette as they come to terms with their new tendencies, and each other. Hawk Moth is coming.

comments: another one of the legendary fics in the fandom. This series is so good I swear. KryallaOrchid along with taylortot are only some of the authors responsible for the spread of the mlb fics

Chasing the C/h/atwalk by Inkkerfuffle

Paris. The city of lights, love and fashion. Follow the progress of Marinette Dupain Cheng as she enters the extremely competitive world of Reality television for a chance to be the winner of Project Runway: France.

comments: i’ve always enjoyed reality tv aus ever since i’ve read that one SoMa fic and now it has an adrienette/ladynoir one and GOODNESS GRACIOUS READ THIS 

Bare Necessities by Reyxa

Art School AU where Adrien is the nude model in Marinette’s human figure class. Major sin warning but it’s more awkward than sexy. Definitely not for little ears… or eyes I guess…

comments: well based on the summary i suppose you would’ve already known that this is sin galore but then knowing you people, sin is probably your middle name 

Secret Santa by the lastpilot

Adrien and Marinette get each others name in their class secret santa and the gifts have to be perfect.

comments: there’s more to the plot than the summary i promise. I have this story saved in both my laptop and cellphone and god this is one of the stories i keep going back to

Scratch that, everything by  Thelastpilot is wonderful

xxx by  hchano, littleblackchat

He knows.

The two words reverberated in an unwelcome mantra that haunted Marinette’s every thought and action. 

Brushing her teeth in the morning, each stroke echoed the rhythm. Every chewing knash of her teeth, every step on her way to school, every tap-tap, tap-tap of her pencil against paper rang in her ears, ‘he knows, he knows, he knows’.

He knows I’m Ladybug.

comments: it seems like the author hasn’t updated yet and i was really hooked in this one. A little angst for you

Boutique by TheJulyCentury

In which Marinette opens an online store, Adrien is hormonal, and Alya is bae. 

comments: beh i really loved this one somuch. But the author hasn’t updated yet so i’ll just keep waiting like a perfectly good reader. No really, this one is one of the firsts i’ve read and one of my faves

Mga beh, the next one has too many stories that i want to rec so i’ll just rec the author him/herself: imthepunchlord

A Brand New Dawn by  whitebear_ofthe_watertribe

Now in college, Adrien and Marinette find themselves reconnecting after years apart. Marinette is a design student at the International Fashion Institute of Paris, and Adrien is just now coming to finish his degree while working for his father. When faced with an impossibly difficult task, Marinette is surprised to find herself overcoming the obstacles with his help and support. But is her heart ready to try love once again? 

comments: a heads up to the newbies in the fandom, if a fic is set in College/university, most probably it has sin. like this one 

I’m Here to Dance by kisstheprincessofpurewhite

Alya drags Marinette to the hot new club “Miraculous” where it’s winner take all on the dance floor. After an embarrassing first encounter, Marinette dons a costume and challenges the champ, Chat Noir, as Ladybug. Marinette embraces the Paris break dancing scene, but times are getting tougher and competition even more so.Aged-up characters, complete AU
Inspired by @starrycove’s break dance au as well as @jen-iii’s picture of Chat and Ladybug. Nothing really original, just my take.

comments: there was a time when the break dancing au took over the fandom. This baby is a result of that. That era was glorious

EDIT:

A Werecat in London by ThornQueen

After an unfortunate encounter with an akuma while in London on a business trip, Chat Noir is forced to deal with the unexpected consequences. Can Ladybug help him return to his normal self, or will he be stuck for the rest of his life getting in touch with his wild side? 

comments: this was recommended by starr-ondalus and was really on my to read list but then i got totally wrecked by hell week

Serendipitous Fate by DemonDogDean

Adrien is excited to reveal his true identity, while Marinette is terrified. But Master Fu says they can’t afford to be distant any longer. Chat Noir and Ladybug are meant to work in tandem both in and out of uniform, their strength stemming from the bond created between them. Yet, teenagers are sometimes better at dancing blind than running with wide open eyes, even with the steps laid out before them.Steps in the path of an expanding world. Apart, they’ll flounder. But together, they might just stand a chance.

welp, my memory got jammed so i’ll prolly update this list once i get my grubby hands on my lapitapi. There was that fic wherein Adrien was a mermaid and putangina i really loved that fic huhuhu

soooo you can suggest if you want to, and i’ll add it…maybe i’ll categorize it sometime

anonymous asked:

Hello you're writing is awesome! I just got awakening and I'm loving Chrom X Robin. I know you wrote about their wedding night but could you write about Robin's pregnancy? I feel like he'd both incredibly excited and stressed (especially when she goes into labor). Please and thank you!

*SLAMS TABLE* PREGNANT… FLUFF!!
Anon, you kill me I love this so much…


“Robin, are you sure you can carry that book? It looks heavy.” Chrom seemingly materialized beside her as she took out the book from the shelf.

“You startling me like this is bad for my health.” She teased, regreting it the moment she saw the look of horror on his face.

“I-I’m sorry, I just–” He mumbled, still taking the book from her hands and scratching the back of his neck. “I’m so nervous; it’s our first child and I worry.” He awkwardly caressed her stomach already on the last stage of pregnancy. “It looks hard on you.”

After saying that, he looked down, much like a puppy when scolded. Robin wrapped her arm around his, leaning her head on his shoulder. “I understand. But believe me when I say that I’m okay. You’ll be the first one to know if something doesn’t feel right.”

Rizzoli & Isles, 5x08 (once again)

I guess, thenicecheese was right – the only way to write a review for 5x08 is to do it while still enjoying a buzz. So, let’s do this before I’ll run out of wine. How about some music to get us into the mood? Here, have some Dropkick Murphys – and for the record, this is NOT the show’s theme song, no matter how often some acoustically challenged fans claim it was.

We begin with a little PSA: Smoking is bad for you! Like, lethally bad. I’ll count that opening as a plus because, given how many young viewers are watching, it’s always good to sneak in some health advice.

But enough with the foreplay, let’s switch to the reason why we’re all watching the show, which is Jane and Maura and—wait, what?

Oh, boy. It’s – quite literally – a boy! No offense. Gjokaj is cute and all. But can’t he grow a beard or at least some stubble so he’ll look old enough to be allowed into a bar at night?

Leaving superficialities aside, here comes the writers‘ first ginormous blunder. In case you’ve forgotten: We had to spent half of last week’s episode cancelling our date with Mr. Jack (sorry, the name Armstrong and his babyface simply refuse to go together in my mind), and the writers made a huge deal about Jane finally meeting him.

And now? We’re already in the middle of the conversation! No awkward introductions. No “not a hugger” scenes. Nothing. All the setup from last week for nothing.

Instead, we get to hear the lame old “whoops, my fly was open” story. I’m so glad I had wine to keep me entertained.

So, let’s move o– … hold on, what? Jane and Maura went camping? In the Adirondacks? What the heck? Have the writers stolen my fanfic draft again? (No, I’m not currently working on a story that includes J&M staying at the Sagamore. Not at all. Move along. Nothing to see here.)

So, finally, we get a glimpse into what the show used to be. High-fives everybo—what? Oh… we don’t get to hear the story? No? Ohhh… I’m just… I… excuse me for a minute…

Well, we’ll always have the Adirondacks, right? At least in our minds…

That’s strike 1, writers!

Fine, let’s deal with the crime then. Apparently, this week’s motto is “Let’s pretend we’re making a cop show.” And a very serious one at that! 

There’s something about a dead (ex-)husband who was playing “I spy with my little eye” – except that he won’t be spying anything ever again. Oh, well… I think I’m supposed to pay attention but I’m still wondering what the embarrassing camping story might have been. Your bad, stupid writers. Don’t throw me a bone and withhold the steak!

Uh, steak… yummy! Wait, sorry, getting distracted…

Anyway, now we get to meet the new team member. Nina Holiday. I wish some of the writers would take off for some not-so-well-earned holidays and let me handle this. Ah, wishes can come true, right?

Nope, not on this show.

So, supposedly, Nina is hiding a little secret but has a clean slate. Let me guess: domestic abuse? Got raped? Lost a loved one in the line of duty? Yeah, it’s gotta be one of the classics. Just wait and see.

What’s most important about this scene though is another fabulous display of the writers’ laziness. Let me quote Frankie: “Welcome to Beantown, Nina Holiday.”
The thing is: No serious Bostonian calls the city “Beantown.” Why didn’t Russ Grant point that out? I thought he used to serve at the real BPD? Oh, wait, I bet he was busy taking buttcrack pictures, eh? Ah, too bad…

Let’s make up for this with some beautiful pictures from Boston, because at this point, that’s one of the main reasons why I watch the show. Look at the pretty:

More pretty. Oh, look, it’s the Constitution Marina in the background. Wanna read a fic about it?

And more pretty. (Oh look, it’s the Massachusetts State House, where Maura’s boss works!)

And more pretty. (You saw that one coming, didn’t you?)

Did I mention I love baseball? And Fenway Park?

Well, let’s move on. That magic enhance button has another appearance (me thinks, it’s getting more screentime than Maura…), Korsak once again reminds those who never want to accept it that Maura works for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and we learn that Korsak’s batting average was pretty bad. I’d totally play him for a few rounds of beer.

Speaking of alcohol, somehow I made it through the next scenes thanks to some fabulous wine. We get a few talking heads (the writers have learned NOTHING from last week’s disaster), then Jane meets Nina (because, obviously, that’s so much more interesting than letting Jane meet Jack for the first time), there’s more talking, and some computer magic and more talking. Whatever.

And finally, after more than ¼ is over, there’s a glimpse of what this episode could’ve been. We finally get a ticking clock – the big bad guy is determined to kill all witnesses. It’s a race against time! It’s exciting! It’s—

Oh, wait, we’ll have to interrupt this program for a completely meaningless never-ending little scene between Jane and Angela and a coffee-stained baseball. Initially, I thought this would be a little setup leading Angela to the realization what her new job could be, but nope, the scene was only in there to, uh, well… make me drink more wine?

That’s strike 2, writers!

We make another quick stop at the Boston Talking Heads Department, and then things get finally exciting again because we can talk more about that baseball and how to keep it clean. It’s so important. Seriously! The writing on my two baseballs has worn off, too. I really need to know how to fix this. Here’s the rest of what was important about this scene.

 

Never mind that Maura is a supersmart, successful, independent woman. Let her talk about bathtubs and baseballs. That’ll keep the annoying Maura fans happy, right? NO, FOR PETE’s SAKE! NO.

Anyway. More talking heads. Blablabla.

And then we get an eeeeeendless scene of Jane trying to convince the quota idiot on today’s episode to give her some information-whatever. About Tasha. Or Santa Claus. Or I dunno. I don’t care anymore at this point. Remember that the clock is ticking? Well, apparently it’s broken now…

And that’s strike 3, writers! You’re out!

*Sigh.* If only…

Well, finally, after ¾ of the episode are over, we get more of the stuff that could have been so great.

A containment thriller. Being stuck in the building. Getting shot at. Hell yeah! That’s the stuff that good and Emmy-worthy shows are made of.

But sadly, most of it is – once again – wasted potential.

Just imagine how great it could have been if the killer and Jane had played cat-and-mouse in/around the elevator. You know, going up and down… Shots being fired at the elevator door… The killer trying to get in instead of Jane trying to get out…

Oh, what a great and tension-filled episode it could have been.

But, alas, the most tension is derived from the fact that Jane – a homicide detective trained to pay attention to every frickin detail at crime scenes – conveniently forgets where she got out of her car so that we can delay the arrival of the cavalry.

That’s strike 4, writers!

Yes, I’m totally inventing new baseball rules for so much laziness on the part of the writing team.

And finally – thank God, I still have some wine left – we get the dramatic ending, which isn’t so dramatic after all thanks to the lamest lines ever given to a genius like Maura Isles: “You did good, Jane. You did really good.”

Gaaawd, even the newest member of my screenplay feedback group would’ve come up with a better line. In fact, in this case, NO WORDS AT ALL would have been an even better choice. THIS would have been the perfect occasion for their eyes saying everything that words would never be able to express.

STRIKE 5, writers!

And STRIKE 6 and STRIKE 7! Just for good measure.

And just like that, we’re already done with this episode that was supposed to be so amazing.

I have no words left. And no wine.

There’s much more that could be said. About how they messed up Jack’s story arc… About how they could’ve sped up half of all scenes by getting rid of unnecessary staring and stating the obvious… About so much more….

But at this point, it feels like a lost cause with those writers.

Well… at least we know that Maura is still part of the show… sort of. Just to make sure we all remember her face, here she is again:

*sigh*
