  • meet jeon jungkook, power forward of seoul university and computer science major extraordinaire
  • you would think from the size of his thighs and his arms that he was a hockey player but he assures anyone that it’s really just a hobby for him and that basketball actually has his heart
  • his mom is actually the reason how he got acquainted with the sport bc a little before he was born, she was actually a college player with a semi-pro spot ready for her until she met his dad who was actually the waterboy
  • they shyly flirted with one another until some of her teammates locked them in a supply room closet together bc it was so unbearable for everyone else to deal with their feelings (lol) so by the time they were out of the closet they were together and happily so
  • however, come around their final year in college when things go kinda wrong and she ends up pregnant with baby jeon and of course they’re ecstatic but holy shit they haven’t even graduated yet and they’re gonna have a baby and well…. she didn’t go onto the semi-pro team and jeon’s dad did his best to work hard for them while she finished getting her degree WHILE nursing jungkook for 9 months
  • to say the least mama and papa jeon managed to get through the whole ordeal with degrees
  • by the time they graduated, baby jungkook was born and he became the light of their lives and despite their initial struggles they did their best to provide the family and make it as comfortable as they could for him because dammit they brought him into this world, they wanted to make him live well too
  • the comfort of their lives came the moment papa jeon scored a position as a nutritionist and mama jeon became a physical therapist so that’s how jungkook got acquainted with the world of fitness and finding interest in the way his parents could take care of people
  • however, the moment he fell in love with basketball was when he saw his mom’s basketball tapes. all the glorious videos of her scoring that winning shot and zooming around the court with such swiftness and agility he damn near got whiplash from trying to keep up
  • and from that moment on, he wanted to play too
  • of course, his parents were very ecstatic about that and enrolled him in a community team and he excelled so damn quickly
  • for the next nineteen years of his life, he played basketball and loved every damn second of it and along the way he found an interest in computers too. (let’s just say he read a few books that his high school computer teacher gave him and he was determined to take apart a computer and put it back together - he succeeded) and so that is why he has a full ride to SU with a basketball scholarship as a compsci major
  •  anywho, seeing jungkook on the court is honestly a sight because you would expect him to be stomping around, too slow for the muscle all over his body, but jfc no he is so goddamn quick and agile. he could be on one side of the court and somehow end up right in front of the opposing member to block for his teammate to make that shot
  • he’s a great team player really, not much for the glory and usually to himself, but on a handful of occasions he’ll surprise even his members with a half-court shot
  • he doesn’t care much for the glory of the winning shot, just the feeling that basketball gives him when he’s on the court, gaining callouses from the ball, and running around until he can’t seem to feel his calves and god the happiness on his parents’ face always gets to him
  • so yeah, that’s jungkook as a basketball player - a really sweet and hardworking boy who loves to make his parents happy and to make his teammates happy too
  • remember how i mentioned how he’s a compsci major?
  • well, you’re actually a compsci minor because you find computers really fascinating and cool and unfortunately quite a few others do too so it leaves you two at a disadvantage as first years compared to the upperclassmen so you’re both resorted to taking these random General Education (GE) classes i.e intro to philosophy
  • it’s hard not to notice jungkook that’s for sure, especially when he’s lugging around his sports bag and when he’s cute as all hell in your honest opinion
  • you once told this to your friends and they never let you down about it either. honestly they’d tell you when he’d walk in or try and get you to sit by him but the closest you’ve ever gotten was probably sitting one person away and that was on the final exam day
  • on a few occasions you two would actually inadvertently glance at one another during your discussion (dear god none of your friends let you live, best believe that) but you were always too shy to approach him and he was actually quite shy himself because let’s face it baby boy is a shy nugget who only knows basketball and comp sci and some philosophy (barely tho lol but it’s okay cuz you knew the bare minimum too)
  • anyway, that quarter you didn’t get to know him as you wished and both of you ended up regretting that because damn y’all thought each other was cute. for him it was especially seeing you laugh with your friends and for you it was that little perplexed expression on his face when the professor would mention soundness and the theories about the concepts and dshgjds yeah you really wished you had taken that chance to tell him he was cute on the last day like you initially planned but was too chicken to do
  • but guess what?
  • the next quarter you see him in your intro to computers class and somehow you two end up seated by one another and although there’s no seating chart, it just becomes a thing that this is that person’s seat the moment they sit there more than twice and so you both are seated not too far from one another
  • your hair is a slight mess and your eyes are puffy while you sip your coffee and he looks fairly content albeit sleepy with his hood drawn up and you both don’t even realize it’s each other until hour two of the lab goes by
  • you’re both starting to wake up and looking around at each other cuz people are shuffling around and some are moving closer toward one another and then it strikes you that the kid with slightly ruffled hair is very familiar and then it hits you and you’re just like “wow ok holy shit cute person from that philosophy class!!!!”
  • but this isn’t enough to get you two to start talking to each other
  • that self-established seating chart has already set in notion and so there’s no honest chance in getting to know him from that and so you kinda give up because you’re very sure he probably doesn’t remember you and dammit your TA is standing over your shoulder staring at your codes with narrowed eyes (rip you but he was just playin’ cuz he liked what you had)
  • this whole exchange isn’t to say you both never talk because on this chance encounter of finding out why he lugs that damn nike bag around all the time comes full circle
  • so you do work at the infirmary, usually filing papers and the like since it’s sort of the track for your major and on a particular day comes in jungkook!
  • he looks like he’s in a lot of pain clutching his shoulder and the nurse gets him to do the necessary papers and shovels him off to the doctor who tells him that he has a pretty bad fracture and he won’t be able to play for the rest of the season (at least that’s what they think)
  • reason: some asshole from one of the other teams hit him a little too hard after one too many unnecessary roughness calls and on this blow jungkook fell a little too hard and too awkward for it to just be another minor bruise and yeah :(
  • he’s pretty devastated about this and he has to go through a bunch of testing and whatnot and as an assistant you usually run around making copies until you have to hand off some paperwork for him to fill out
  • prior to this, you noticed how most of his appointments took up his time during the labs and the lectures so you nicely set a copy of your notes with his, adding in things you figured he might need to know from the lecture since he was unable to attend and the moment he receives the large stack his eyes grow wide
  • and you’re like “oh so i remember you from my comp sci class and i figured you might these notes… -oh and those are just basic info that the doctor wanted you to sign off on and the like”
  • he blinks at you, still pretty surprised at your kindness (and totally not freaking out that such a cute person is chatting from him aka the same one he’s wanted to talk to for a while) but he flashes you a small smile (and omg you love it so much) and thanks you
  • coincidentally most of your volunteer shifts are during his appointments and whatnot so you talk every now and then, usually about the notes and eventually about your majors
  • the doctors and the nurses think it’s absolutely adorable so sometimes they let you two chat a little longer than usual just for young love to bloom <3
  • this exchange goes on from some time until he finds the guts to ask for your number when you hand him the large stack of notes in this rushed blurting of words i.e. “soumiwaswonderingificould-maybe-getyournumber??”
  • you: “wait what”
  • he looks down, cheeks quite pink, “can i -um- get your number? since y’know we have comp sci together so it’d be easier to like study for exams and talk about it and stuff…. yeah….”
  • you grin and nod, scribbling it onto one of the notes and the two of you can’t deny the butterflies and erratically beating hearts y’all have going on
  • you both see each other during his check-ups but he’s healing quite quickly thanks to having such strong bones so he may not be out for the rest of the season like they thought thankfully and so when he’s fine and his check-ups are less and less
  • so along the way, you two end up talking day by day even sitting by one another in your comp lecture because you’re semi-friends now and it’s just nice to have someone you know in that class since none of your other friends were interested in comp sci like you so nowadays you’ll text one another about the class and how your days are and those little butterflies emerge whenever you wait for his text or receive a response and you’re just like “dsjghsdjgshdgs”
  • little do you know he’s honestly the same exact way and his roommates jimin and taehyung are always like “???? WHO DAT? :D” and jungkook’s like “lol gtfo bye”
  • anyway, one day you text him about the upcoming final bc you’ll be damned if you miss out on your chance to actually ask his kid out and studying together and he agrees but it’d have to be after his practice and you ask him about his shoulder and if he’ll be good to play at championships
  • and he’s like “oh yah!”
  • and you’re like “o: woah, can i come watch? i haven’t gone to a game and i wanna see you play. prolly treat ya out if you win”
  • and ok, at first he’s a lil’ shy but he says “ok sure, just say you’re with me at the door” and you do and jin (the RA)’s at the entrance like “O: WHAT MY FLOOR CHILD HAS A GIRLFRIEND, THAT PUNK KSJHFJS” but before he can say anything else one of jungkook’s buds urges you to sit by the front and you do until you see jungkook and he looks so nervous, glancing around until his eyes settle on you and he just flashes you a grin and wave which you return as well
  • the game is going by swimmingly and you can’t help but watch jungkook especially because even though he’s the power forward he’s also very conscious of his shoulder which you were extremely worried about until you feel like you can finally breathe when your school wins and you stand with the crowd cheering like crazy
  • out of everyone tho he actually approaches you first with a grin and you’re congratulating him and he feels so elated he really just wants to take you up in his arms and kiss you tbh but he has self control and mercy bc he’s sweating like crazy
  • ngl tho he looks crazy attractive in your opinion
  • anywayy, as you two are talking since you did tell him that you’d buy him food on his win, the rest of the team’s like “yooo kook! party at jackson’s!!!! you in??”
  • and although you’re disappointed you tell him you won’t mind if he goes but he turns to you and says with a grin “nah i got plans already” and jsdkghsjgh the team goes “oOOOOoooooOoooo” but y’all ignore them and he goes “i’ll be back ok? gonna get cleaned up and we can get food?”
  • so you’re content to wait by the locker room for him, grinning af bc holy shit the cute boy you really wanted to get to know last quarter is going to dinner with you!!!!!
  • meanwhile jungkook’s so nervous and stuff cuz he plans on confessing and stuff since it just seems right and his teammates clap him on the back like “yo you got this bro!!!!!!! goood luck tho jin definitely sent him some salty messages and warnings to be safe ahahaha
  • and ok so y’all go to dinner at this nice ramen shop and it’s really great! and you two are laughing your asses off about how this one time oneo f his roomates taehyung got stuck in between the washing machines because he was so certain he could fit and how they had to call the fire department to get the boy loose and yeah ahaha
  • and he’s just in awe with how damn beautiful you look when your laughing and he just blurts out “you have a really nice laugh” when you ask him why he’s staring and you’re like “o: oh thank you…. you do too”
  • and he says “i wanna hear you laugh more and be the reason why you do….” he lets out a deep sigh, appearing a lot more nervous than before, “i like you a lot. i think you’re incredibly cute and i love that you love compsci as much as i do and talking to you these past few weeks have made me happy and god i really wanted to kiss you after the game but i didn’t want to scare you and i feel like this is a lot less eloquent than in my head so i’m sorry”
  • and you’re just in awe because damn you really planned on confessing first but you can’t deny the smile spreading on your face and you tell him “kook, i like you too. and i’d really like it if you kissed me, by the way”
  • and he’s all wide eyed but he grins and after y’all eat and you’re strolling around the city with his arm draped over your shoulders, you guys stop at the top where it overlooks the city lights and on a particular moment when you both are still and quiet and glancing at one another you lean in and do it
  • and it leads to a shocked expression on his face but he lets go of your shoulders and puts his hands on either side of your face and kisses you again
  • and ahh it’s just so damn sweet and neither of you can stop grinning because damn it really worked out as you both hoped
  • dating jungkook entails a lot of visits to his practices after you’re done with volunteering where you’ll come by with ice packs and water and snacks and usually you’ll bring enough snacks for the others who absolutely adore you for that
  • you also have a tendency to fuss over him whenever he overexerts himself because he’s a very big overachiever in sports and academics and sometimes you gotta threaten to withdraw your kisses and affections just to get him to settle down honestly
  • his roommates were so happy to hear how things turned out for you two and they go out of their way to tease him whenever you’re around and dear god Jin
  • well when he found out you two got together, he saw y’all holding hands and he literally sat you both in the lounge, brought out some snacks and just chatted with you
  • to jungkook, this was horrendous but you loved chatting with jin because he’d lay out a bunch of things about kook like how he isn’t the cleanliest and you shouldn’t be surprised to find anything and everything under his bed and how there was one time when jungkook spent an hour googling how to work the washer and dryer were right by the bulletin board in the room and that’s when kook lost it and dragged you away
  • it was then decided that jin approved of you tho
  • bc after the season when everyone is still training after, jungkook’s shoulder was bothering him and he refused to admit that he might’ve overexerted it and you stormed over to the dorm and scolded him for not taking proper care of himself before running around just to grab some ice packs and just a mini kit of dealing with this brat and jin just knew that you’d take care of this kid so he leaves y’all be and even closes the door to the dorm tho you pay no attention as kook starts opening up to you
  • even on days when he feels his worst like he feels like everyone depends on him and he’s not sure if his abilities are good enough since his shoulder’s constantly bothering him and all you think to do is give him words of advice and kissing him to let him know that he isn’t alone
  • because although you count on him, you want to be there to support him and well…. jimin and taehyung aren’t in the room and with the ice pack on his shoulder, you climb atop the bed, sitting on his lap and kissing him with more and more fervor that he reciprocates
  • you convince him to let you take care of him and you do indeed~
  • the one day he actually loses a game (bc hey no ones perfect) and you’re there doing your best to comfort him he just tells you how much he loves you and is grateful for you being there
  • and holy shit this is the first he’s told you this, you tell him you love him too and god he looks significantly happier
  • on days when you’re at your worst, he tries his best to get your mind of it, taking you on walks to your favorite places and carrying you when you’re too tired
  • other days he’ll even forgo practice, finding the frog leaps on the stairs worth it, when he can pick you up after your volunteer shift just to surprise you with snacks and a semi-well made bento box and boba and it’s just so damn sweet ok
  • you and jungkook manage to complement one another in the best way possible and when you’re both overexerting yourselves you’re there for one another to tell each other to chill
  • to say the least, both of y’all have never been more grateful for a philosophy class even if you both suffered incessantly in that damn class

anonymous asked:

Can you please stop with the 'Sciles was ruined this season' bullshit? Look it's canonically seen now that Stydia has and always will have a deeper connection then Sciles! The romantic love between Lydia and Stiles this season was amazing, stop ruining it with your hatred. Sciles wasn't the main relationship and never will be.

Oh anon hate, how I’ve missed you these past few weeks.

SCILES DEVELOPMENT (Problems and solutions):

Season One: Scott is bitten by a werewolf, Stiles tries his best to protect him and help him through it, including a panic attack that Stiles experienced in his childhood. Scott on some occasions pushes Stiles around because of his transformation and is verbally mean to him during his second full moon experience, but this because of his experience of turning from a human to a werewolf.

It will save Scott, your best friend, who you know so well, you even have his username and password.” – Peter Hale

Season Two: Stiles still wants to help Scott through everything but starts doubting himself because he is only human, but Scott reassures him that it’s okay. They work together as a team and they stick together through everything, including Derek biting teenagers to Allison turning to the dark side after losing her Mother, the pair never lose their connection with each other. Stiles is kidnapped towards the end of the season, which angers and saddens Scott, you can see the instant relief when he knows he is okay. Have I mentioned that everyone knows that Stiles and Scott are best friends? Basically, everyone in Beacon Hills knows.

“Scott McCall finds his best friend bloodied and beaten to a pulp. How does that sound?” – Gerald

“Dude, you still got me.” I had you before.” “Yeah, and you still got me.” – Scott & Stiles.

Season Three A:  Stiles and Scott are still close, but they are releasing that they can’t lose each other. They want to protect their friends and each other when Scott tries to kill himself in Motel California; Allison tries her best to get through to him, but they haven’t known each other as long as Stiles and Scott have known each other. It was Stiles to get through to Scott, this is the scene that it is easy to tell that they love one another as Stiles trusts Scott enough to step in a pool of gasoline, even though Scott was himself and he could have easily dropped the spark and killed them both.

Originally posted by eu-ca-tas-tro-phe

Season Three B: (aka my favorite Sciles season) They both help each other through what their sacrifice does to them, Scott helps Stiles through a  panic attack in the best way, almost textbook accurate. Stiles help Scott from shifting, the list goes on. When Stiles goes missing, you can hear the obvious hurt in Scott’s voice when he is on the phone to him, his voice cracks many times. The whole MRI scan just finalizes that they are the main relationship in the show, they hugging, Scott promising to bite him, the love! The whole Void situation, everyone, even Noah seemed to have given up hope on saving Stiles, but Scott pushed for a way to save him, even when everyone was telling him he couldn’t

Season Four:  They are still best friends and still care for each other. The humour comes back this season, but that’s when Sciles is at its best. In the pilot, Scott is not willing to leave Stiles behind until he pushes him to. During Weaponized, Scott turns to Stiles for judgement and rests his life, Malia and Kira’s too on Stiles’s shoulders – Stiles is put on gun point, he is willing to die to keep his friends safe. Stiles saves Scott by telling the pack that the berserker is in fact Scott in Smoke and Mirrors. 

Season Five A: Their friendship is tested dramatically by Theo and the dread doctors, but it is obvious they still care about each other; for one Stiles doesn’t want to drift away from Scott. After killing Donovan Stiles becomes very isolated and silent from everyone he cares about, even his then girlfriend Malia Tate, he is secretive because he is scared, after being possessed, I’ll him a pass on why he was terrified.  I was a little let down when Scott believed Theo straight away, but the whole pack had been dragged through hell backward, so he was tired and Theo meant for all of this to happen. In all honesty, the fallout was bullshit and made no sense, the dialogue was overly simple if Stiles had just let the wheels turn in his head and said, ‘I didn’t kill him with this,’ or something like that, it could have been sorted in five seconds.  In the end, Stiles chooses to find his Dad, before saving Scott, which is actually understandable because, Stiles lost his Mum and losing his Dad would be far worse, Scott knows this! Noah is human, whilst Scott is supernatural, Stiles picked his Dad, he always will.

Season Five B:  Okay, I’ve want to address the fight scene for a while now. For someone who lost a Grandmother and two friends, feelings can get really disoriented when someone you love is in agony and/or dying, it takes over and it really hurts. I am not justifying that what Stiles did to Scott was right, but for one, he didn’t know Scott was hurt and second, this is still the same boy who lost his Mum, who can’t lose the only parent he has left, the only relative that he actually gives a damn about, his Dad is dying and his mind isn’t functionally properly! Anyway, on with Sciles this season. Scott makes sure Stiles is okay after he is knocked out twice, plus works with Stiles to save Noah. Stiles forgives Scott and they go to find Kira, where Stiles tells him the truth about Donovan and they finally both see it for what it really was – an accident! When Scott falls asleep in the car, for a split second you see Stiles crying, I think it’s because he’s happy his brother finally understands. They protect each other throughout the rest of the season and it ends with a cute Sciles scene.

Season Six A: For a millisecond funny Sciles is back. This is where I’ll address the fanservice shit if they know about the wild hunt in town, why is it Scott and Malia suddenly give up on him, like he didn’t exist? Oh I know, because Lydi@ has loved him since day one and is the only one who knows he exists…bullshit. Moving on, Scott starts to realize that he can’t lose Stiles, he loves him and he is his best friend. Stiles tells Scott not to look for him, as it will put him in danger. Scott becomes overwhelmed with Stiles’s memory, crying and everything, (if this season wasn’t  fanservice, Scott would have torn that rift apart!) When they are finally reunited, Scott is delighted and Stiles admits he has missed him a lot. Scott and Stiles say goodbye, but also say that they will miss each other a lot.

Strdia development (Ha, hahahaha):

Season One: Stiles has a crush on Lydia, she doesn’t know he exists. She is in a relationship with Jackson. He protects her from harm along with Scott and Allison, but she never thanks them or even looks at him. They go to prom together because Allison told Lydia to take him, Stiles forces her to dance by using her cleverness as an advantage. Stiles protects her after getting hurt by Peter (she thanks, Jackson in season two, btw.)

Season Two: Stiles sleeps outside her hospital wing, she doesn’t know he is there and Lydia’s Dad is confused about by it. She knows her height, hair color etc, obsessive and just plain weird. She still doesn’t really register him as a friend; he is just someone who hangs out with Allison and Scott. She ice-skates with him, but doesn’t really do anything romantic; she helps him around the track like she expects he doesn’t know what he is doing.  She goes to the Lacrosse game, but she is there to support the whole team and afterward she runs to Jackson after he is hurt, she doesn’t even notice the Sheriff asking where Stiles is. She goes to Stiles’s house after Jackson’s death because she doesn’t know what is going on with Allison and she knows that Stiles know about the supernatural. He doesn’t seem to care that she has lost Jackson; he only cares about himself, which is not a situation for Sciles in season two. In the end, she chooses Jackson.

Season Three A + B: Lydia starts to see him as more as a friend, Stiles also starts seeing her as only a friend as his crush on her isn’t even spoken about this season. She runs for BOTH Scott and Stiles when the flare nearly kills them. She cares about Stiles during his panic attack, but ruins it when she kisses him, it is medically stated ‘not to surprise or touch someone during a panic attack unless given strict instructions to do so as it could cause further harm,’ well she broke all of that! She cared about him when he went missing, but at the same time, so did everyone else; Scott, Issac, Derek, Noah, Melissa, Raphael, Aiden….everyone wanted to find him!!!! She helped Scott bring Stiles back, but it was Scott’s roar that did it. When she was in Stiles’s head, she even thought about Jackson! She was in a developing relationship with Aiden and was heartbroken he died. Stiles was her shoulder to cry on because he was THERE at the time.

Season Four: Stiles and Lydia are turning into good friends, best friends even. Stiles is now with Malia. Lydia is constantly flirting with Deputy Parrish and isn’t jealous of Malia and Stiles in any way. Each scene with Lydia and Stiles is purely friendship based; no romantic feelings are felt or acknowledged.

Season Five A+B: Lydia fights her way out of Eichen, nearly, to save all her friends, not just Stiles. She has a vision of Aiden, her lost love. Stiles is still with Malia during season 5A and Lydia is getting closer to Parrish throughout all of the twenty episodes.  They hardly have any solo scenes in the first ten episodes as Stiles is preoccupied with Donovan and Lydia is spending more time with Jordan. When Lydia is hurt and Stiles stops to look at her, he is worried about his friend; he did the same expression when Derek was hurt in season three. He helps the pack get Lydia out of Eichen, but for some ridiculous reason, they had her say ‘Stiles saved me,’ when it was obvious that EVERYONE PLAYED A FREAKING ROLE! They hardly have any scenes after that, Stiles is being hunted by the Desert Wolf because of Malia’s love for him and Lydia is trying to make Parrish stay in Beacon Hills.

Season Six: Lydia is suddenly in love with Stiles and plans on telling the entire world, even his ex-girlfriend who happens to be her best friend! She cries every single second. Stiles uses his time to talk to Lydia over the radio, ignoring Scott. Lydia clearly doesn’t give an F about Scott and Malia’s feelings. Stiles doesn’t reunite with Malia.

And to finish this long post off, Jeff Davis himself stated:

“The romance of this show is truly a bromance.”

*drops mic*

Unpopular Opinion? 12x14

I really, really loved this episode. 

I also REALLY love Mary, tbh, she’s painfully and beautifully human and not this perfect person/perfect mother everyone (and Dean) put on a pedestal all these years. We can’t let our love/overprotectiveness of the boys cloud our judgement on Mary who is doing her best even if we don’t agree, kthx.

Also really, really, really love Dean’s character development this episode as far as his maturity level goes and how family matters whether they make you mad and/or you agree with their choices or not. 

AND I am relieved/happy that they are emphasizing what I’ve been saying all along, the BMoL did NOTTTTTT torture Sam, TONI tortured Sam. There is a CLEAR friggin’ difference. She was a rogue just like the lame ass hunter in this episode 12x14 turned rogue. 

(Mind you this does NOT mean I trust them at all, lol, but I do think it makes Mary’s decisions and also now Sam’s decisions make complete sense to me, considering the BMoL really are offering the chance to end all monsters, I mean c’mon. They might not be completely infallible but knowledge like what Sam provided tonight in his kickass way throughout really fills in the gaps the BMoL have. They could be an epic team, tbh, but again…I’m not saying I trust them. They see things in black and white, and don’t believe in letting good monsters/witnesses live. That isn’t cool, but that does NOT make them evil by default, goddamn. It just makes them see in black and white juuuuust like John Winchester did and how Dean used to in the past.)

AND, AND this Sam at the end? His decision is completely IN CHARACTER for him to do. He’s always been a fan of doing things better/smarter/researching/strategizing. He completely takes after his grandpa Henry as far as being a true to heart Man of Letters. Plus he has worked with “enemies/people he doesn’t trust” before. Ruby, Crowley, Lucifer, and MANY MORE/others. Sam has a VERY solid history of being able to put aside both past differences and even ‘evil’ to get the mission done. Bless him.

ANYWAY, just thought I should put this out there. I absolutely ADORE S12, I love the hell out of Mary, and I’m really excited for the rest of this season and seeing where it goes. This current turn in the story line has lots of potential, especially considering Sam and Dean are gonna need alllllllll the help they can get against Lucifer and Rosemary’s Baby, I mean let’s be real here.

All of this coming from the mouth of a Sam!Girl through and through who was/is horrified over what Sam endured and went through at the hands of that fucking bitch Toni. I’m just also aware enough to know/realize that TONI does not represent the BMoL as a whole, she. went. rogue. …If people could stop lumping them together until we get canon proof, that’d be awesome. Innocent until proven guilty, ya’ll. Learn it. Live it. 

Also just… please, enough hate on Mary, goddamn, she’s HUMAN (and humans AND Winchesters make well intentioned mistakes/lie/hide things from each other all the friggin’ time), and honestly only wants to give her boys what she never could before now… A happy life. A normal life. A world free of monsters. 

….Probably won’t happen, shit will hit the fan somewhere, but stop faulting her for giving a damn enough to actively try, jeeeeeez. Don’t be mad because the show gave us a well rounded character. 

Again… All just my personal opinion. And an unpopular opinion at that (there’s so many people hating right now, it saddens me), but I just felt like I needed to throw my 2 cents in. We’re all allowed to feel differently, and I still love those of you whom I follow who don’t feel the way I do, but yeah. S12 is diamonds (especially from a Wincest standpoint, haha, it’s been so gooooooood, but that’s neither here nor there.) 

for @kparsekpop, who provided commentary along the way. based on this post by @bittelitt and not nearly shippy enough, but that just means I’ll have to write more down the road

If Alexei had known, when he first signed with the Falconers in 2010, that’d he’d be playing with a bunch of children, he might have reconsidered the offer he got from the Pens. As it stands, he wants to hide in the showers until the rest of his team clears out of the locker room at least twice a season, because he doesn’t want to deal with the chirps anymore.

He came to America for a number of reasons, playing hockey being the main one, of course. But being able to be obnoxiously himself was another one, and that meant being honest with his teammates, at least, and maybe everyone someday, about who he was. He’s grateful everyday that they never for a second treated him differently from all the other rookies, for his accent or his size or his bisexuality. They’ve got his back, ninety-nine percent of the time.

The one percent when they don’t? When they play the Aces, and the chirps go flying.

What are your thoughts on Ratchet across the continuities? :)

Hey there, Lovely Anon! In general, I like Ratchet quite a lot, but I’ll quickly go through some of the continuities and give my opinion! My head is a bit foggy today, so I apologize if this is weirdly structured or makes no sense. I’ll put it under the cut because it’ll probably get long!

‘American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare’ Season Premiere Recap: Reality Frights

Warning: This recap for the “Chapter 1” episode of American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare contains spoilers.

The next time you see a raccoon dragging a human hand through a mall, ask no questions, for you need no answers. Life’s most beautiful mysteries should remain as such, just as life’s most delicious surprises need not be dampened by forewarning. So now, in its sixth lurid and disgusting and incredible season, American Horror Story makes official what we may have suspected all along: It simply does not give a damn about spoon-feeding us anything at all. Explanations, coherent storylines, even the PREMISE itself. This year if we want to know what’s going on with this show, it’s on US to figure it out. And that is just straight-up exciting.

No, really. When did we get so dead-set on knowing everything about a story before we’ve seen it? Hasn’t Ryan Murphy earned our trust by assembling and reassembling TV’s best cast and subjecting them to all manner of insane grotesqueries year after year? Yes, he has. Which was why it was borderline hilarious when all of American Horror Story: 6′s promos suggested that this season’s premise was nothing less than EVERYTHING. No longer would this series be hemmed in by themes as basic as “witches” or “ghosts” or “David Bowie covers.” We’re in uncharted territory now, and when there are no maps there are only opportunities for surprise. Surprise! We’re in Roanoke.

Folks, I’m going to level with you. Even after sitting through the entire first hour, I’m still not sure what the premise of this season is. The main things we need to know are: (1) This season appears to be a meta show-within-a-show type of thing, and (2) as far as the horror is concerned, it’s a back-to-basics situation. We’re talking empty, foreboding houses, countless homages to horror classics — Blair Witch, The Amityville Horror, The Wicker Man — and the usual overqualified menagerie of actors. But aside from those main things, there’s something unsettlingly strange about what exactly this season is trying to accomplish. Fully half of the advertised cast didn’t appear in this episode, and who even knows how the reality TV angle will play out over 13 episodes. Something tells me AHS has some tricks up its sleeve this season, and the fact that I have no idea what they could be is why I’m truly thrilled right now. So let’s get into this episode!

As with any epic horror tale, we were ushered into the macabre madness by a harbinger of evil… 

American Horror Story is a tricky show — just full of tricks and twists and jokes and japes — so it wasn’t immediately clear if this personalized introduction-slash-Mercedes ad was supposed to be satire or some kind of meta item, but apparently it wasn’t. It was just Ryan Murphy hawking a luxury vehicle, no big deal. “May your nightmares be forever burdened by what you are about to see, and also maybe consider trading in your jalopy for some fine German engineering?”

Anyway, the episode hadn’t even started yet. Then suddenly it started! 

Lily Rabe (Aileen Wuornos, Misty Day) appeared as Shelby, a talking head on some kind of paranormal reality show. She was here to tell a tale, a nightmare tale specific to the U.S.A. An American horror story, if you will.

Her husband was this guy. And, as the onscreen titles informed us, we were about to hear THEIR TRUE STORY. The truest story of all. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to… 

My Roanoke Nightmare was a lot like those “true” paranormal reality shows that you might watch at 4 a.m. when refreshing your ex’s Instagram feed gets too psychologically harrowing. But imagine if those crappy basic-cable fake-outs contained VERY EXPENSIVE-looking reenactments populated by Emmy- and Oscar-winning actors!

Because yep: The talking head duo were then portrayed by Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr. in the “reenactments.” Honestly these actors were so distractingly overqualified that it felt like an episode of Drunk History. To say nothing of the fact that this also kind of felt like Marcia Clark and O.J. Simpson had eloped after the trial.

OK, so the story was this: Shelby and Matt were living the dream and were pregnant and everything, but then a gang member ran up to them on the sidewalk and punched everybody until Matt was in a coma and Shelby’s unborn baby was like “Nope!” So they decided they needed a fresh start in an arguably MORE terrifying place than downtown Los Angeles: THE DEEP SOUTH. There they bought a giant repulsive mansion for $40,000, which made them instant enemies of Chaz Bono and his inbred besties.

On the upside, Shelby could now use this dilapidated mansion for all manner of interesting things, including yoga, and also hot yoga.

But things started getting weird right away. For example, the first night they tried to do sex to each other, guess what interrupted them? PIG SCREAMS.

Matt went outside to investigate, but all he found were torn-apart trashcans much like the ones the unseen bully threw at Arnold on Diff’rent Strokes. This was not a good sign.

Another bad sign was when Shelby was trying to enjoy a nice bowl of Greek yogurt and a hailstorm started rattling the skylight. Except it wasn’t ice or sleet, it was HUMAN TEETH. But because this was a horror story, the instant she tried to tell Matt about it, all the teeth disappeared. Ugh, disappearing jump scares are the worst. These ladies know what I’m talking about:

They were chilling in the hallway at one point. Who were they? Didn’t matter. Because Shelby was ready to instantly forget about their presence and instead take a dip in the haunted hot tub! 

I probably don’t have to tell you this, but this is not a great idea on Shelby’s part. Within seconds of moistening her bathing suit region, a team of unseen yokels attempted to drown her in the water! They too disappeared, and as rattled as Shelby was about the whole thing, all the local sheriff could do about it was make that “glug-glug” motion with his hand and point at her knowingly.  

To his credit, Matt believed his wife, which was only fair considering he too kept encountering what is known in the business as f***ed-up s***. Look at this eviscerated pig corpse he found on the welcome mat! Just look at it. Rude, right? Who would do such a thing? Paula Deen? It was a mean thing to do and that’s a fact.

So at this point we met our third interviewee: Matt’s sister! And yes, she was Tara’s mom from True Blood, obviously. But guess who plays her in the reenactments?

ANGELA BASSETT. Oh, thank God. By which I mean thank ANGELA BASSETT. This season Bassett plays Cuba Gooding Jr.’s sister, and she is a former prescription pill addict who lost her badge when she popped too many pills while a dude committed suicide. Or something.

Honestly it doesn’t matter. She is Angela Bassett and she is here to help! 

Which is necessary, because the exact same night Angela Bassett arrived, not only was she set upon by a hater (Shelby), but the house itself was invaded by rednecks with pitchforks! As Shelby and Angela Bassett cowered in the basement watching a mysterious videotape that was playing on a weird old TV for some reason, the rednecks were upstairs TP’ing the entryway with Blair Witch twig boys!  

A lot was going on here and Angela Bassett didn’t have time for ANY of it. Not the pigman in the video, not the twig boys, not the empty wine bottles rolling around in her bedroom when she was just trying to get some damn sleep. Yet to Shelby’s credit it was SHE who took the initiative to swiftly get the f*** out of there.

Shelby just hopped in her Mercedes (I’m guessing) and hit the highway! Where she then hit Kathy Bates! 

Yep, Shelby straight-up ran over Kathy Bates with her Mercedes, but Kathy Bates being Kathy Bates, she simply got up off the ground, picked up her bloody butcher knife, and disappeared into the dark woods. If I had a dollar for every time I’ve seen this happen, I’d have at least seven dollars. 

At this point Shelby had no choice but to follow Kathy Bates into the dark woods, where she immediately found ANOTHER set of twig boys hanging from the trees. Another issue was the fact that the forest floor was undulating like crazy. We’re talking acres of woodlands just lazily rising and falling and rolling around like me on a waterbed. This was Shelby’s cue to stand up and investigate.

At this point she discovered none other than Wes Bentley roaming around with a torch looking all creepy-sexy. But before she could compliment his wig and beard, some guy ran out of the woods with his scalp missing! 

And it was at this point the credits began to roll. What on earth was this episode?!

It was just the beginning, that’s what. Either this season promises to continue in this vein, or things will get very shaken up by twists and meta-surprises. Either way, My Roanoke Nightmare is a reminder that AHS remains one of TV’s most audacious and impressive surprises. Much like the Roanoke colony itself, I can’t wait to disappear into it.
