they are the real deal

anonymous asked:

The thing is w/e relationship those 2 have w/ those supposed SOs I gather they have to be okay w/ the way they're treated in public, we can judge from afar but we don't know the real deal… But still I can't stop thinking about how Sam treated his supposed gf at BAFTAs, he did exactly what Trump did to Melania at the inauguration, didn't help her out of the car, left her to be escorted inside by others and looked bored/miserable sitting by her at the table, that's what's most disturbing to me 😣

You know why I’m not disturbed? She has benefitted from this. She has gained a few thousand new followers SOLELY because of Sam while allowing trolls to fight and wage war on her Instagram, maligning real people in this fandom who haven’t done anything wrong. She didn’t even do any social media promotion for her own made for TV movie, the only promo she seems interested in is the innuendo that keeps the Sam and Outlander fans interested in her.

I’m not going to answer another ask about her poor treatment, because I can’t find a violin small enough to play. I don’t condone what goes on on her IG account, but I’m not going to sit around and worry if Sam is treating her the right way or not. Not my relationship, not my issue.

⭐️-Been forever with prompts but I do this thing.

Yorumei ever shows far less than he often feels.  For Chizuri, he felt quite a lot.  She fascinated him, for he had never met another quite like her in her shows of kindness.  And yet, she also always seemed like something near untouchable to him… which made her all the more interesting.  Yorumei would have sang for her, brought her to meet the various spirits of the forest, and let her join him, at least once, in his reverie to the stars.  But ‘business’ ever came first, always will, and her safety was on the line.  

So too is guilt incredibly powerful in Yorumei’s mind.  He couldn’t dare bring himself to reach for what he felt he might tarnish, or worse. So there were walls and walls and walls. At the very least, he would help her and do what he could to see her live the life she wished.  

Yet.

That time came and went, and he found he did nothing.  Not for lack of thought, not for lack of searching, but for lack of time tracked. So now, more often than not, when thoughts of her come to mind, the guilt is overwhelming.  Letters received solidified his concerns, he was absent, too slow, did not fulfill what he had claimed, and she was in dire need of aid.  

Yorumei doesn’t know Chizuri’s fate.  He hopes for the best, for a life she always wished, but cannot bring himself any attempts at reaching out for the feeling of failing her is too great.  She is even more untouchable now.

Instead, he treats her thought as a gentle spirit.  It’s true, he doesn’t know whether she is alive or not, cannot bring himself to do readings for her, to look into where he should not go.  But he sings small songs to the Quiet Lights out in the forest now and then, singing to just as small blue birds who might pass their song on to her. And he often remembers her kindness whenever the soft, inviting glow of paper lanterns catches his eye.

I'm curious do you think more than normal anyway that this is Sam's way of saying he's with MM? I remember back to Baftas when people thought that was the case, which made sense at the time. But afterwards we got a bunch of SC moments. Cutesy videos like ECCC announcement+possibly Ireland xmas together. It seems like the usual, which hardly a stand IMO but also it's harder to justify looking at the big picture of his behavior with it all which is what makes it so confusing. Idk what to think.

Well one thing’s for sure, he wanted us to know he was in Georgia. Maybe he didn’t realise that people already knew that there was a wedding happening and it was an innocent post, but I find that hard to believe after everything that’s happened. I know there’s a lot of mixed messages flying around but for my own sanity I have to believe that him and MM are the real deal. He may not have said it out loud but the fact that he was there and didn’t care who knew about it says enough.

Vladimir, the Psychic Decorator, came over to where Voohon  stood brooding and made note of the hole in Tzedon’s front yard.

“Relax, We won’t end up in that hole. I’ll deal with that ghost at the Candyfornia  build site. Lets go get you some breakfast at the diner before we take off” 

Privately, Vladimir knew he was in waaaaay over his head, but he could not let Voohon know that he was actually unqualified to deal with REAL ghosts. 

Voohon would probably turn him in to Tzedon straight away just to deflect attention from his own shortcomings. 

What a mess. 

First there had been the involvement of the spooky ghost-descended Salas family in that matter of the gift car for one of Tzedon’s wives.

The huge plant had been purchased as “protection” (cough) from that potential psychic threat.

 Now this other ghost was violently haunting the proposed site for Tzedon’s new vacation home in Candyfornia.

Fearsome, violent, Tzedon never experienced any major setbacks in his life. Who would dare get in his way? That damn moth of his was in fine health and lived a pampered, well protected life..no special magic needed. But Tzedon was a superstitious man and at least partially credited his various Psychic Decorators..including Vladimir, for his success, and CryptoMoth’s health. He paid his consultants very well.

Vladimir only had an Associates Degree in Protective Decorating from a non- accredited, shady, but inexpensive sort of “school”, but he WAS a good salesman..pretty much a con-man… and had landed Tzedon as a client.

He was not at all a real expert in dealing with actual supernatural forces, but he could not let Voohon know this. (He also was no botanist..as Kl-a-Dar had determined when she sold him that huge specimen plant intended for Tzedon’s Amnora Glipsunu home.)

Vladimir was good at thinking on his feet. He was sure, given enough time, he would figure out some way to deal with all this ghost stuff. But he would not HAVE time  to do that if Voohon figured out he was a fraud.

@nofunclvb got any proof?? also shut the fuck up its not bc i just “dont like them” she literally enjoys fetishizing gay men and denies that gerard is nonbinary/not cis but ok! and like ask urself why her saying faggot is a big deal but fetishizing real life people isnt. like its literally on the same level or even worse than saying faggot but yall love to normalise it

Emily: “So, Winston. Lena was telling me she used to not be able take off her chronal accelerator, in the old days.”

Winston: “Ah-ha-ha, yes. How embarrassing; those older models were so shoddy. You wouldn’t believe how long it took me to perfect a localized temporal stabilization field over a wide enough area that would allow-”

Emily: *grabs his arm* “THANK YOU.”

‘I Love You’: a man’s perspective

I haven’t made the rounds yet this morning, but already last night I’ve seen multiple posts that seem to want to either downgrade or erase the meaning behind Sherlock’s words to Molly Hooper. I find it insanely amusing, because had those words been to John Watson, people would be wetting themselves, but because it was for Molly, people are climbing all over themselves to again deny this character her actual fair due.

My husband, who watches Sherlock with me, had some very interesting perspectives on The Final Problem. He tends to read the show textually, without shipping or all the other nonsense we as fandom people get into.  I tend to trust what he says only because he has no ulterior motives, like zero. Even my own ship doesn’t really mean a damn thing to him. He knows I love it, but he’s not swayed by my reading or my desires at all.  

His reading of The Final Problem was that this was Eurus effectively unlocking the original Sherlock Holmes.  This was Sherlock’s sister, bringing him home, just as he was bringing her home.  To do that, she had to undo what she did when she took Victor Trevor away from him at that young age.  She took a little boy who was filled with bright, wonderful, hot emotion, and she made him lock that away.  She made him like her, and to my husband, it seemed like that was never what Eurus wanted.  

The scenes inside Sherrinford were about systematically making Sherlock face each single, major emotion that he’s refused to feel all these years: anger, fear, sadness, and above all…love.  And no, I don’t mean love for your best friend, that’s already been addressed, and that was already the easiest thing for Sherlock to unlock in himself. He basically did that in S1.  Sherlock loves John, his best friend, just like he loved Victor.  The parallels are spelled out for you in the clearest of ways.  

Sherlock’s locking away of his ‘sexuality’ was already broken open in S2 with Belgravia.  Irene Adler represented a part of Sherlock that really, really wanted out.  It was confusing as hell for him, as we saw, but he still managed to deal with it.  Sex is sex is sex.  It’s meaningful, and at the same time, can also be meaningless.  I personally never saw Irene as meaningless, far from it.  But I do think her special place in Sherlock’s “unlocking” was more physical than emotional.  Hence, we were reminded of this by the moan of her text tone. I personally think Sherlock’s sexuality is firmly unlocked at this point, no need to revisit it again and again.  Something that remained hidden though, very deep down, was Sherlock’s ability, willingness and understanding of a deeper love, and what that means.  This is where Eurus comes in.

The scene with the coffin was very carefully done, both by the writers and on the part of Eurus’ planning.  In fact, if you listen carefully to Eurus’ words, she states exactly why she did it: you lost, look what you did to her, look what you did to yourself, all those complicated, complex emotions, emotional context.  All of those things are things people feel when they love someone (romantic love, since I’m sure I need to spell it out for some viewers).  You feel elated, but you also feel scared.  You may also hate yourself because you probably feel the person you love deserves BETTER than you.  Should you act on it or let them go find someone better.  Do you have the strength to give up parts of yourself for them?  Do they have the strength to give up parts of themselves for you?  It’s scary as hell, y’all!!

 My hub says, to him, the first time Sherlock says ‘I love you’ to Molly Hooper, he didn’t mean it…or at least Sherlock thinks he didn’t mean it. Then, the second time, he did mean it, and he knows it.  That is why he smashed the coffin…that was perhaps the biggest emotion he’d locked away, and he was consumed and confused by it.  For a man who has spent decades pushing love away, it came roaring in within 3 minutes, and he couldn’t push it away. Eurus wouldn’t let him push it away, and more importantly, Molly Hooper wouldn’t let him push it away. That’s why she turned the tables on him and made him say it first.  She inadvertently helped Eurus, which I’m sure was her plan all along (if you believe she’s as much of a supernatural badass as she’s shown to be).

My husband’s purely textual reading of Sherlock’s smashing the coffin with ‘I love you’ on it is that he DID mean it, but he wasn’t sure what that meant to him, and it scares him, greatly.  He said that looked like a man who was pissed that he LOVES.  He spent his entire life working at not loving, and here he is, loving this woman, but now he isn’t sure what to do about it, because he’s not even sure what that really means.  He doesn’t understand it…yet.  Love like that is incredibly strong, true love I mean, not “Hey let’s bone” love.  He said that wasn’t the actions of a man who doesn’t really care.  He said, as a man, if I had to get a woman to say that and I didn’t really love her, I wouldn’t care as much.  I surely wouldn’t care enough to smash an entire coffin to bits with my bear hands.

Lastly, my husband said something I thought was incredibly interesting about how he reads Sherlock.  He said he thinks the reason Sherlock hasn’t really pursued any other relationships with women, not seriously that is, is that on some level he really knew he loved Molly, but that he felt HE wasn’t good enough for HER.  He thinks Sherlock, for all of his arrogance, actually doesn’t think he’s a good man.  He knows Molly Hooper deserves a good man, someone to love her exactly how he thinks she should be loved, and he’s terrified he ISNT that man, or he CANT be that man.  His rage at smashing that coffin was basically anger at himself, anger at himself for loving this woman who really deserves more.

So, from a man who views this show with as much pure text as possible, he thinks that “I Love You” was real, but he thinks Sherlock simply doesn’t know what to do with it, doesn’t know what it means.  He said love is the scariest thing, especially to someone who’s lived closed off.  He’s had an upbringing that, without going into details, was a bit devoid of emotional support from people he needed it from. That means that learning how to show love was incredibly, incredibly difficult for him.  Trust me, I’ve been here for the entire thing.  It took years for him to learn how to show it.  It took me years too…in fact I still have massive trouble with it. People who’ve lived not understanding how to love since young childhood…it takes us a very long time to learn how to do it.  

My husband and I are not the kind of people who go on romantic ballroom dancing dates and snuggle on the Tunnel of Love ride.  We’re just not those kind of people…but we do love each other very much.  We have our way of showing it that works for us. There’s no one else I’d rather trust my mind, body and soul to.  That was first built on friendship, then trust, then love.  For us, I think that’s kind of where Sherlock is starting to head.  We may not ever see that adventure, as that’s not what Sherlock’s story was about.  But, finding how to love, that was his story, and Molly Hooper is an irreplaceable part of that.  No one can deny that, not ever.
