they're freaking back

Can we please talk about how surprised Mon-El seemed that just being there and holding Kara was enough?

I felt like when he was talking with Winn and he said “what’s left for me?” what he meant was “what’s left for me to do for her?” as in she’s Supergirl - what could she need from him? I think he was kind of afraid to ask and have her realize that she didn’t actually need him for anything.

I think he realized in their last scene that being there, supporting her in the simplest ways, was enough for her and it kinda blew him away. I think he was struggling to see what he could give to someone so incredible and strong and I think those little expressions - the smiles and the soft looks on his face - were showing us that he understands that yes she’s amazing beyond words but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want someone to be there for her at the end of a terrible day. 

He asked what she needed from him and he probably wasn’t prepared to hear that just being there was enough. From what we know about his past there probably hasn’t been a time in his life when just being Mon-El was enough for someone. Especially someone he cared about and that he wanted to comfort and support. He is so new to all of this and I can’t imagine what it meant to him for her to tell him that all she wanted from him… was him.

AU where the gang couldn't figure out how to get to Pylea (at least for a while) so princes Cordelia ended up saving Fred her damn self and they rule together for however long?

send me an au and i’ll give you 5+ headcanons about it

 - okay, the first thing cordy does when she becomes queen and actually has control over pylea was to free humans and slaves and whatnot, and cordy’s p sad bc none of the people she saved sounded like the girl who helped her, but then a while later she’s getting to know her new kingdom and she sees this crazy looking girl trying to hide and she just Knows. it was almost impossible for cordy to understand her at first but she was just so grateful, she somehow convinced fred to go back to the castle and convinced her she would be safe.

 - fred Never leaves cordy’s side. first bc everyone else scares her - they did try to kill her multiple times -, and then because cordy just makes her feel very, very comfortable. it was awkward at first when fred insisted she had to sleep in cordy’s bedroom and cordy was decidedly Not happy about it, but turns out fred’s cute and she doesn’t make too much noise, so she could stay.

 - at first it was just gratitude, but soon cordy finds out she Needs fred. fred knows everything about pylea and their culture, she knows about their food, costumes, language ((kinda))… people in pylea grow to really like cordy as a ruler and a lot of that has to do with fred. thing is, for the most part fred doesn’t even know she’s helping so much. she just really likes cordy and when she likes people, she rambles. cordy’s spent Hours just listening to fred talk and talk about everything that happened to her since she got there.

 - fred never Really begins to recover from her ptsd while she’s still in pylea, she’s still jumpy and afraid, and she still writes on walls, but her sanity shines through here and there. cordy can see there’s an actual person behind that crazy, and she realizes how much she really cares about that girl, and how much she wants to help.

 -  cordy decides to throw feats as often as she can, for as many people as possible. it’s mostly a substitute for parties, that she misses greatly, but it doesn’t really work without the music - at least the drinks are Amazing. fred always eats too much and at the same time, regrets not eating more.

 - they don’t start dating or anything like that, at least until they’re back in LA - their whole situation is a little too crazy for that. but the signs are there. fred stopped sleeping in the extra bed, and now cuddles cordy every night, they’re always touching and smiling and laughing around each other, their goodnight kisses stopped happening only at night, and pyleans started using the word for “partner” when talking about fred - she’s too shy translate that to cordy. they’re yet to com-shuck tho.

 - no matter how many times cordy asked her to stop, fred always calls her princess. even if cordy is a Queen, and she wants to be called by her name, fred can’t help it. she’s as pretty as any princess she’s ever seen or read about, and she lives in an actual castle, and as far as fred’s concerned, they’re living their version of happily ever after.


Go ahead and make an acrobatics check

It's Just the Little Things.

I can only hope that someone else screamed as loud and as obnoxiously as I did when Ansel surprised Aelin with Kasida.

That wasn’t even a major plot point. She just got her horse back. After like five books.

And yeah. I screamed.


you can say what you want about speed


they can dance with heelys on

your argument is immediately invalid

If someone–especially someone socialized as female–says “stop” or “don’t” or “give it back” in a joking/lighthearted tone you do what they ask. It costs you exactly nothing and this may be the only way they feel comfortable expressing their discomfort.


Now look into each other’s eyes. And pledge to go as far as your soul will allow. Swear it now. 


You’ve got to look for the good moments between the bad ones.
