i want a fic where louis’ step-dad owns a ranch and harry’s a farmhand and louis totally doesn’t have a thing for watching him getting sweaty and having to take his shirt off. but like he uses the excuse of bringing harry something to drink ‘because you looked thirsty’ just so he could go out and talk to him. it becomes a habit and his stepdad is like 'stop bugging my workers’ but harry is like 'it’s no problem i actually enjoy his company’ which makes louis so happy he actually blushes when harry says that. so when harry has his lunch break louis starts to bring out food for them to eat together they start talking and talking and louis finds out harry is the sweetest sweetie who is charming and funny and that he loves to bake and all this other stuff that makes louis like him even more. then one day louis just blurts out 'do you want to go out with me’ .
the thing that bugs me about aphobes is that they’re like ‘cishet aces don’t belong in the community’ or 'straight aces are still straight’ but like???? when u say ‘straight’ or ‘het’ u literally mean heterosexual?? which they aren’t??? because they’re asexual??? wtf makes no sense
Do you want him to be redeemed as a person in control of his faculties and actually deal with the grey areas of the canon/plotlines dealing with corruption on a global scale? By writing him as Not Himself, we’re sweeping the implications of his actions actually having real motivations behind them under the rug. We’re completely undermining the idea that there’s something of merit to Sombra’s conspiracy theory and writing off her entire plotline.
I’m not okay with this. I’m all for Gabe, but I’m defending him as someone who knew what he was doing and did it with full knowledge of the consequences. As a man who by all accounts saved the damn world he had to know what those consequences were and had to have a reason for accepting them. And by both his actions in the comics and his voiceline interactions in-game, he is still Gabriel Reyes.
(Besides, the idea that he isn’t in control of himself or isn’t himself and thus is able to commit atrocities is just… So insulting and damaging to people with mental illness who deal with dissociation, psychosis, and a perceived lack of control over themselves. It says that the logical conclusion to being crazy or out of control of one’s self is to be a killer, no pesky motivations needed. Don’t do this.)
it could also be that magnus expected to spend the evening with alec and made sure to be free work-wise? and then just wasn’t bothered to do anything but hang out and socialize… but i totally agree with you, i hope they’re not going into this direction of magnus always just hanging out and waiting- he is the high warlock ffs, no way he’s not really busy!!
Let’s hope it did in fact happen this way. But after seeing how the ep progressed and all (like they cut that still of Magnus, he just seemed “wandering” around in his loft before Alec came back, ….), it still somehow leaves a very bitter taste in my mouth. Please don’t let this happen. Because even if he had the evening off, I am pretty sure there is always something to do for the freaking High Warlock Of Brooklyn.
