this ep was all kinds of awesome

Just a Sterek drabble I wrote on this rainy Sunday afternoon because I started my day off watching an absolutely SOUL-CRUSHING ep of House, M.D. and needed a little something to cheer myself up afterwards.

In case it’s not your thing: this fic features Stiles/OMC, but not for long. ;) Rated T, under 1k words

Sometimes Stiles’ new boyfriend can be fairly awesome, like when they stay up until three a.m. together playing video games and making out, or like that time… like… Well, pretty much all the examples Stiles can think of right now are sex things, but. But Jake’s a nice guy, kind of. He’s hot. He’s so hot Stiles still can’t believe he wants to date Stiles, and there are times when he can be a lot of fun.

Then there are the times (like today) that have Stiles questioning all his life choices, especially this one.

“Stiles, stop texting Lydia,” Jake says. No—practically whines. Seriously.

“Uh, no?” Stiles hits send, because Jake is not the boss of him. “We’re still on the ground. We don’t have to turn our phones off yet.”

And now Jake is pouting at him, like he’s six years old. “That’s not what I mean and you know it.”

Stiles can’t help but roll his eyes. “Stop trying to tell me who I can and cannot text. It’s creepy and controlling.”

Jake tries to put his hand over Stiles’, and it actually makes Stiles’ skin crawl a little bit. Stiles crosses his arms over his chest, hands safely tucked into his armpits. In retrospect, inviting Jake along on a trip to Hawaii was probably a bad idea when they’ve only been dating for three months.

Jake crosses his arms, too. “I’m your boyfriend. I’m not allowed to get a little possessive?”

“A little possessive? This is not ‘a little possessive.’ This is annoying and ridiculous and petty and invasive and… Look, yes, I’m bisexual, but Lydia and I are just friends. We’re always going to be friends, and I’m never cutting her out of my life for a boyfriend. The end. So you can stop being a jealous dick—”

“Or what?”

Stiles can’t believe they’re having this conversation right now. “Or maybe we shouldn’t be dating after all.”

Jake runs a hand through his sandy blond prince-charming hair and snorts. “Please, this relationship is over when I say it is. Or do you seriously think anyone else is lining up to date you?”

For a moment Stiles is actually speechless, because how has he spent the last three months thinking this guy was attractive? How did he overlook this level of douchebaggery? Some kind of witchcraft, probably.

That’s when the guy in the row ahead of them turns around in his seat, looks Stiles straight in the eye, and says without even one hint that he’s joking, “I would date you.”

1x03-5x11: 100 episodes since we met Felicity Smoak.

Guys episode 5x11 was the 100th episode since the introduction of Felicity Smoak. It totally slipped my mind lol. Thank the casting gods that they found Emily Bett Rickards. Thank the writers for wanting an IT girl for a couple of episodes. Thank the eps for seeing how amazing she is and for keeping her around. Thank Emily Bett Rickards parents for bringing our Queen into the world. Thank Emily for being her awesome, magical, beautifully talented self. The girl has more charisma in her pinky finger than most people could ever dream of. Thank Emily and Stephen for lighting up the screen together back then, and for continuing to make us all fall in love with these characters and their unique connection. Felicity Smoak has shown that she is brave, strong, intelligent, kind, loving, and that you don’t need to wear a mask to be a true hero. 100 episodes ago this show truly found its heart. There was just something about her.

So….that happened.  How are we doing!  I for one am freaking out.  Lots of theories coming into play here including one that is very near and dear to my heart.  

My ask box is blowing up and I think we are going to break the record of 70 post Singularity easily.  So bear with me as I go tomorrow.  I will combine where I can and will get to them all.

Well it’s been forever since I’ve posted anything but I’m back!

1.  Let’s take a moment to appreciate this awesome banner made by @simlishprincess. It’s perfection, thank you so much!

2. The Chevron Legacy is my new game play legacy. Its kind of an EP Legacy and mostly kind of not. Things to know:

  • I will start with base game and add content from there in release order
  • I did not uninstall anything so there may be some cross contamination from other EPs besides the current one being explored
  • An EP may be explored for more than one generation
  • My main/only goal is to explore content I haven’t before and try to do all the things
  • Store content is always fair game and I’m keeping my mods and cc but will try to limit the use of them
  • I’m stealing your beautiful sims for this
  • It will be a few days yet before I’m ready to start posting. I want to play ahead a bit more so I can maybe actually keep a queue going for more than a day or two

This is really, really long but it would mean the world to me if you took some time to watch this video! Or maybe even read the post. Thank you so much guys.

Hey guys!  I’m Lucy. I’m fifteen from Canberra, Australia. Cheesecake is my life even though my body doesn’t agree with it. I love Taylor Swift, sunsets, nature walks, the smell of wood, fresh stationery and binge watching things on the internet.

Most of all , I freaking love music. I love performing, I love songwriting. So much that I’ve decided to pursue a career in it. People call me crazy and naive but hey, it’s what my heart and mind are set on and nothing can stop me trying. 

In September of last year, I got to play at the Canberra TEDx Conference at the Canberra Theatre. IT WAS INSANE AND ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF MY LIFE. You can listen to it in the video above! It was an amazing day, and all the speakers and other performers inspired me so much. I got to play 3 songs I’d written that I was really proud of and talk about them in front of a sold out crowd of 600 (ok, it’s no 76,000 but it was THE BEST FEELING). Afterwards, people told me that the songs made them feel something. They said they laughed, cried and felt inspired. That is the goal for me, I want my songs to make people feel something. I was so honoured that people took to the songs I’d written and the whole day was such an incredible blur.

Walking off the stage after I sung was one of those ‘holy crap, that was a thing I just did’ moment. I got real deep inside my mind and realised it would’ve never happened without Taylor.

Let me explain. 

In late 2008, I heard Love Story from my friend’s MP3 player. My mind was blown. I then went onto discover the entire Fearless album. My mind was blown even more. This girl called Taylor Swift was writing and making music as well as performing for a living. Seeing a young girl do that made me realise I could maybe do that too. The reason I started this whole music thing was because of how inspired I was by Taylor. The she holds herself on stage, in person, in interviews and as a songwriter is so inspiring. Taylor is true to herself, her art and just writes how she’s feeling and writes the truth. That’s the greatest thing to me and something I hope to emulate one day.

I started out by going busking in the city as a 9 year old who could play 4 chords on the guitar. Now, I’ve done so many things I never thought I’d do and. I played at a TEDx Conference. I released an EP. I sold out my EP launch. I became an Australian National Busking Champion. I I grew as a person. I finally found a group of awesome people to hang out with. And most of all, I found my passion. I went from someone who wouldn’t talk and was too scared to go into shops to buy things to someone who was confident in themselves and proud of who they are. 

For these past 8 years, Taylor has been by my side. Her hardwork, growth, humour, talent, honesty, intelligence, selflessness, confidence and most importantly kindness inspires me every single day. Taylor’s journey has inspired me to work hard at my dreams and to never ever give up. And I’ve seen so many other girls my age doing music and slaying life after being inspired by her. Taylor’s lyrics and beautiful songs have made me laugh, cry, lie down on the floor to reflect on life and dance. I’m so incredibly proud that Taylor Swift is my role model. 

So yeah, the video on this post is my TEDx performance. I’m really proud of it! The first song is about my dreams, the second about my life and the third about the world. I’m so grateful for the opportunity and I can’t believe my life is turning out in such an awesome way. 

Thank you for taking time out of your day to read all of this! It really means a lot to me. I’m like 110% there for meeting new people on tumblr so feel free to send me a message to talk about life. I love life chats.

Love from,

Lucy

PS. Taylor, if by some magical chance you’re reading this: thank you for everything. Thank you for giving me the chance to feel that rush you get when you finish a song you’re proud of and when you’re playing your songs in front of people. Thank you for being so wonderful to all of us and for standing strong when they build you up to knock you down. I love you so much.

the force awakens: modern au

 so @catie-withac and i got to talking.

modern au where:

kylo ren is that guy in school who gets mad and clears his desk and just slumps over it for the rest of the class and everyone’s like hey don’t try to talk any sense in to ben he’s mad right now he’ll get over it

they all play dumb board games together and he’s the one who flips the monopoly board

no one really gets mad tho they’re like yeah we knew it was going to happen

Leia and Han are cool parents that are always super great and his friends love them but he’s like “ugh arent they the worst they dont understand me”

BB-8 is the cat

poe hides him in his backpack and brings him everywhere bc he is a well behaved cat

he’s actually Poe’s cat but he wanders around and at first before Rey knows them she meets bb-8 around the neighborhood and befriends him

finn’s the kid who moves in halfway through the summer and is like who the fuck are all of you and why does this cat dislike me

everyone feels sorry for Rey when they learn she’s Ben’s cousin “my god what is that like? how’s thanksgiving??”

Ben wants to hang out with grandpa ani the whole time and he’s like “padme pls help I love the kid but wtf Leia control your son this is all your husband’s fault”

gramps is such a gentle grandfather who has these awesome stories and you’re like this is totally made up but he insists that he 100% did all of this and you’re like gramma? and she just nods like yup you little bitches

Han doesn’t admit it but he’s kind of scared of Anakin and stills tries to impress him. Anakin knows and play it up. Leia does too and is v amused.

BB-8 looks like tubbs the cat with orange patches

anonymous asked:

Thought that was an epic episode but now I'm really ready for FS to have a scene together! With only 3 eps left, will it be next week or are they going to drag it out right until the last second? And do you think it'll be a win for Jemma or just more pain and her not getting through? Either way, hope they get a scene (and can't wait for Jemma to kick Papa Fitz's ass) ! Thanks for your awesome theories :)

Hi Anon!

We are all ready for Fitzsimmons to be reunited and I swear this is the writers kind of paying us back for all of the sass we had in A about them not being together…because this is SO MUCH worse.  

Like I said in my meta, I have not been to the point of tears frustrated with a show like this in a long time.  And its not that I’m not enjoying the story.  I just want so bad for them to be reunited, for someone to save Fitz, for someone to even be trying to get to him.  Every week we see how much he has suffered at AIDA and his fathers hand.  But no one is actively trying to get him out or get to him anymore.  

They have kept Fitzsimmons apart for a reason.  Mostly because yes, its building up to an epic scene (I’m almost picture a twist on the LMD scene from 15).  I think if Jemma wasn’t going to have an effect on him they would have had the face to face meeting already.  But because she is going to help get through to him, they have to save it for the very end.  Because from a story standpoint, like it or not Looking Glass had to get going, we had to escalate the stakes, so part of that was keeping Fitzsimmons apart.  

Another factor is we (most but not all) of us want Jemma to be the one to get through to Fitz.  The fandom would have flipped if it wasn’t Jemma that got through to him.  We have seen with the others that it takes a BIG emotional upheaval and the person they are closest too.  Coulson it was Daisy and an assist from Tahiti.  May Coulson with the kids/Mace’s death.  Mack…really hasn’t come around yet and is still just trying to protect his daughter.  Mace never came around either.  He died seeped in the fantasy.  Fitz has only come across Daisy and Radcliffe who didn’t do much.  Jemma’s “NO!” in 17 DID effect him but the programming was re enforced immediately by Papa Fitz and Ophelia.  

Its all been building to next week guys, they know we are desperate for this reunion and for them to come back together.  We also have to get Fitz back in some way in order for him to help stop it all, they have to stop The Doctor.  We know that Jemma is going into action with her going for Papa Fitz…and that means she must be going for Fitz.  There is no other reason for him to go after him alone.  

i know the highschool detectives drama is known for the lesbian kiss that one ep

that ep i still havent reached yet btw

but i recommend it for many reasons anyway!

  1. this is a kdrama with predominantly female casts, theres like SO little male folk in this its starting to stand out but ofcourse i do not hate it at all! its totally awesome to see so many female roles and some great acting man i swear ji jinhee JIN JIHEE (i realize ive been saying her name wrong all this time. i was damn close)is like - incredible. i only remember her from clips from highkick and i dont know what kind of role she had there, but she has a dark-ish, sober role in this drama (she gradually allows herself to endulge in silliness though) but her role is so stubborn and deadset and like SHE WILL CLAP BACK AT ANYONE EVEN ADULTS AND SUPERIORS LIKE - SHE GOES IN im just so impressed with the way she acts. and i havent seen much of her childhood acting but i feel like shes on the way to becoming the kind of actress that wins oscars and stuff.
  2. the plots are versatile and they have a clever way of mixing some comedy with some slice of life and some actual dramatic and heartwrenching situations. at first i didnt know how to receive this drama because i was used to 1 dragged out cliche plot and a fucked up plottwist in ep 12, breakup in ep 14 and reconcilliation in ep 16. but this is not the case here, there are seperate events, of which some continue later on but its basically about the seonam detective girlsquad (SQUUAAADDDD) and they get new cases as people run things by them, or they notice stuff themselves. its fun to see them deduct and walk through scenarios but also gather evidence and solve cases. 
  3. no annoying ost's 
  4. BARE MINIMUM OF BOYS - LIKE - THATS THE BEST THING ABOUT IT. OK NOT THE BEST BC THE ACTING IS ON POINT BUT LACK OF BOYS IS EVEN TOO MUCH FOR ME 0 BOYS WOULD BE GREAT BUT YKNOW 

so um yeah please do watch seonam highschool detectives, especially if you are for more girl-invested productions.

think about all the most popular dramas, and think about how many men there are in those as the main characters, and how many women are their fellow/opposing characters.

i can tell you about like 5-6 dramas with like 1 girl and a harem of twinky boys pretending to be in highschool like

embrace this drama please.

I know OUAT got renewed for a S7 but to me it still feels like the show ended with that finale

I don’t know if I’ll watch any of S7 because when the writing completely went to shit the only thing that kept me watching the show was my love for rumbelle. I might watch the first ep depending on what I hear from others on my dash and mostly because I just love Bobby so much. But it really sucks that Emilie won’t be a regular.

But regardless of whether or not I watch S7 I will always be a rumbeller and will continue to read fics as long as there are people kind enough to write them and share them with others. Rumbelle is my OTP of OTPs and fic is where it’s at anyway. The fic is so damn good. Love my rumbelle fic. Thank you to all the fic writers. You guys are seriously awesome. I really hope the rumbelle fandom continues. I love you guys

may i present, err, paco? and his loyal chauffeur/bodyguard/croney.

can totally see what you were going for with those recolours, tbirds animation/modelling team. you wanted parker to be wearing a white linen suit. you wanted an open shirt and you wanted to see some chest hair. ideally, you wanted a gold chain to go with that gold tooth. and, of course, you wanted a gross pencil moustache. it’d have been awesome, totally completed the fake-tanned mafia boss look. i know, i know. money’s tight. can’t be spending it all on virtual clothes.

penny’s just wearing a skirt version of parker’s TOS chauffeur uniform. (anybody else think its weird that parker has his TOS hat but not the outfit to go with it?)

anyway. this episode might just give me the mafia tbirds AU i’ve been dreaming of. well. i always saw penny as the mob boss, but this role-reversal is actually kind of awesome.

Punk Luke part 13

part one // part two // part three // part four // part five // part six // part seven // part eight // part nine // part ten // part eleven // part twelve

This part is shorter than the rest but I really wanted to get the last part of it in the story somehow. Sorry it’s horrible :(

Punk rocker Luke Hemmings falls for the new girl in school and it’s super cheesy but hey, punk!Luke

PLEASE NOTE: This entire story is punk!Luke and, like many other chapters, this one contains smut.

I will continue to sing the praises of Thrilling Intent, a semi-visual podcast show based on a Pathfinder & D&D thing that’s been edited and pretified. Basically, there’s a lot of improv, comedy, and superhype. But also, there’s plot, and super-awesome characters, and feels, and 100x as much enjoyment as your regular tv series.

TL;DR (Putting this near the top while I still have your attention.)

  • Really well-rounded characters that develop and change. The kind that you fall in love with and feel for and hate when they so something terrible.
  • A subtle and slowly building plot with a range of interesting arcs and sub-plots.
  • An extensive world that slowly comes to life throughout each ep. One you want to explore and know so much more of.
  • Funny episodes, serious episodes, edge-of-the-seat episodes that have you shaking your fist at the creators for making you wait a week till the next. Story quality improves significantly with every new arc.
  • Really great humour. Also PUNS! from really genuine, funny, and kind people. Also, they’re pretty darn talented - all of them.
  • A super-interactive fanbase and super-awesome creators with lots of fan interaction.
  • Literally, these guys need to hurry up and take my money already.

Though I should note warning for explicit language. If this were on air it’d probably be rated (M) in Australia. Maybe (MA 15+) at the most.

If you don’t want to read my long spiel of why it’s awesome that’s below, you can start watching at one of these points:

- The tax day special if you want a general taste of what it’s like.
- Deck of Disaster if you want a convenient point to start at without being too lost and not having to swamp through the not as good (but still pretty good imo) earlier stuff (seriously they improve heaps with each new arc).
- From the beginning if you wanna be real hardcore. Watch at least the first four eps, though.

I’m laughing so hard at these reactions to Steven’s imminent watery death.

Amethyst: SLACK-JAWED OMG WTF

Pearl: HYSTERIA

Garnet: Whatever the fuck this was

LIKE SHE’S SUDDENLY FUCKING LASER STICKY HANDS

I knew they could all do some manner of shapeshifting, but I think this may be the first time I’ve seen anyone but Amethyst really do it.

IT’S KIND OF AWESOME

Also. You know what? I have no time for anybody who shades Carlos with these ‘he really stepped it up this time yay!’ comments. Because Carlos has been awesome since day one. He is so natural that everyone thinks Cisco’s stuff is half improv, he spits out science and nerd jokes and occasionally pretty awkwardly written dialogue like it’s all off the top of his head, he plays every emotion he is called on to play perfectly. 

Like, okay, there’s this thing he did first in the ep with Hartley getting out and then tonight. This thing with his voice, where it thins out and kind of stumbles its way out, the way it really does in real life when you have to say things out loud that you do not want to fucking say. Watch the scene where he admits he shut Ronnie into the accelerator. Those words physically do not want to come out of his mouth, and it’s amazing to watch. And he does that in this ep, breathes out these words that his lips don’t want to form because they should not be the truth but they are and he has to face it. 

Like. Do not fucking shade Carlos Valdes around me. Do not patronize him with these half-assed compliments. He has never been on screen before this show and he is fucking killing it every week surrounded by people who’ve done it for years. 

So basically I loved every moment of Sam’s story tonight. It was pretty great. And even though Billy was hard on him, I like to think that she was hinting at a cure for him. Showing his perseverance and resourcefulness was like… THE BEST THING EVER. And it gave me faith that they haven’t forgotten to write how competent he is. (After he was thrown through so many walls and windows, you can’t blame me for wondering.)

I’m so interested to see more about these visions the poor baby had and I wonder if we’ll see Billy again. I hope we will and I kind of hope she has something to do with them just because she was so fucking awesome in the few minutes she was on screen. 

Ugh Sam was just so smart, and humble, and vulnerable, and badass, and just… all the great things that make Sam SAM in this ep. I’m so happy. I hope this continues throughout the season!

Bullet Points: Not All Prisons Have Walls

The Savior-part 3 (parts 1-2 here and here)

Bullet points are encapsulated scene analysis from the top of each act to the bottom. (each act is bookended by a commercial break)

1. I really, really like the fact that Emma goes directly to the site of the dirigible crash seeking answers. She knows instinctively what the source of her new issue is and she’s confronting it head on.

There were a lot of really nice and surprisingly subtle “strong Emma” moments in this episode. Moments that showed the character growth that came from making it through the Dark One experience. I feel like to some extent they’re getting lost in the upheaval surrounding her decision not to tell Hook and her family about her vision immediately. 

I think that’s a big mistake. 

Personally I don’t want my favorite characters to be perfect. To make the right decisions the first time and every time. That gets boring really fast. 

I think it’s important not to let one decision you may not agree with, or like, overshadow all of the really awesome Emma moments from this episode.

2. It’ll be interesting to watch over the next few eps what brings on a reaction from Emma—and to what degree. Her hand tremors when she touches the rope but it doesn’t progress to a vision. 

Perhaps it would have had Archie not arrived which continues the question from from the previous scene outside Town Hall as to how much influence others can have on stopping or redirecting the vision. 

3.  Archie’s appearance is kind of convenient. Just sayin’ Something about him has my Spidey senses low grade tingling at this point.

4.  “My parents sent you.” There’s something a little sad about how Emma immediately jumps to that conclusion. On the one hand she knows her parents care about her and are concerned but on the other hand they send Archie as opposed to approaching her themselves.

5. “They thought it might be easier for you to talk to … “ “A cricket?” 

Emma is clearly annoyed here. Not with Archie, (I didn’t mean that like I was anti-cricket) but with her parents. Part of it is clearly that she doesn’t want to be pushed right now. She wants some time to assess what’s going on in her own mind before she’s forced to talk to anyone else about it. But there has to be another part of her that finds that fact that her parents would send Archie annoying. That they think she would be more comfortable talking to someone with more emotional distance.

The contrast in this ep between how Snow handles Regina’s problem versus how she handles Emma’s problem is pretty stark. From a storytelling perspective I understand it. They don’t want to dilute the Snow/Regina moments later on (which are very well done) but still … sigh.

6. Emma looks at her hand before saying she’s not in the mood for therapy. BOING!!

Yeah we got that one. That wasn’t really a point that needed driven home.

7. Archie’s little mini-monologue about Emma’s walls being down and the fact that there are both good and bad aspects to that was a little heavy handed but it did the job of resetting the issue pretty well, and it was relatively short, so ok

8. “There are no shortcuts” 

I ADORE the fact that as soon as Archie says those words we can practically see Emma’s mind working then we cut to her visiting Hyde in jail. 

The man who claims he knows what’s behind the visions. 

The literal personification of a shortcut. 

I see you, show. Nice work.

katrani  asked:

Also, I thought you'd post about it because HANDS (even it's a though different show), but do you have any commentary about Connie and Lion instantly jumping to working together to grab Steven? And their moment when the water starts falling of like "let's go, we got this"? (sorry i'm just REALLY EXCITED YOU'RE FINALLY AT THESE EPISODES)

Yeah that was one of those moments where I was “Oh that’s awesome”, but about all I had to say at the time was “Oh that’s awesome”.

I MAY HAVE A LITTLE MORE NOW

I mentioned that something I really loved about this episode was how everyone got to contribute in some significant way. What’s particularly great, though, was that the Gems contributed in exactly the same way we’ve always seen, so as a result, they didn’t really claim much of the focus. Fighting themselves, it literally just DOUBLED UP on what we expected from them. That’s not a complaint, I loved it. But there wasn’t much to say about them, it was pretty straightforward.

That left all the attention on the others, and it raised an idea that I hadn’t quite considered before. When you think of the Crystal Gems, it really is “and Steven”. Steven is the addition, the outsider.

But with the others, he’s not “and Steven”. A new team is forming AROUND Steven.

Even with that though, they’re not just “Steven’s team”. Connie and Lion connected in a way that’s really pretty amazing, particularly when you consider that Lion doesn’t speak Connie and Connie doesn’t speak Lion.

They knew instantly what they could do. Better, they knew what they could do TOGETHER.

That was FOR Steven, but not BECAUSE of Steven. There’s an instant understanding and trust between Connie and Lion entirely their own.

That’s a crucial quality about Steven, I think, as emphasized by him reaching out to Lapis. He’s bringing all these different kinds of people together, and they’re discovering they FIT.

Also Connie and Lion are basically just awesome.

[Not sure this would really be at risk here, but just in case, here’s your friendly reminder that I’m watching Steven Universe spoiler-free. Please be careful with any comments or reblogs!]

I’m so proud of Swen right now, I always knew you were amazing but after watching this ep I was like “shit” and was almost expecting it to be like a ghost town on here but instead there’s this fantastic mix of venting, ranting, love for the ship, love for each other, support, still some dumb positivity theories floating around, and just general awesomeness. Tonight’s episode may have been all kinds of disappointing but Swen continues to be more amazing than ever and I’m so proud to be part of this fantastic group of people.
