this has open a can of worms

I was just listening to the radio and they started playing two ghosts and the radio hosts were like ‘this song’s is apparently rumoured to be about Louis Tomlinson’ and then another host was like ‘some say that it’s about Taylor Swift’ and the first radio host just screamed 'NOOO’ like firstly yes girl I agree 100% and secondly this song has brought out people talking about Larry, like the radio hosts were literally like 'if you’re in the Larry fandom this is one for you’, by picking two ghosts as a single they’ve opened up a huge can of worms because majority of people do think that it’s about Louis which is just going to make the general public go wtf why? what’s Larry?? Like my mom legit turned to me and was like 'why do they think it’s about Louis??’, basically Larry is probably going to be getting a lot more exposure so good luck to anyone that looks it up

An Aftermath.

Perhaps a glimpse of the first time that Hubert really lost his temper, really, and that infamous Duck Temper showed its colors. 

I can imagine that while they weren’t in the best situation financially or in regards to living conditions before they moved into McDuck Manor, Huey had no outlet for his frustrations, if there even were any with such a quiet lifestyle.

But with change comes opportunity for feelings to take flight. Poor Repressed Huey has played the part of the calm, collected older sibling for so long that once they have a steady and reliable home environment that can of worms will eventually pop open without the pressure weighing down the lid.

And oh. Does it take everyone by surprise when it does. He’s so unpracticed in managing his anger that he is too overwhelmed to do much more than rant and rave and maybe break something if it’s close enough in range. But it’s so concentrated that one might think a bomb went off.

Louie probably said something trivial that he thought was an innocent poke of fun. A tease that pushed the wrong button.
But I’d like to know what everyone thinks might be a possible “Berserk Button” for our little Hubert. Please tell me your thoughts.

“A start? said Ellaria sand, incredulous. “Gods forbid. I would it were a finish. Tywin Lannister is dead. So are Robert Baratheon and Amory Lorch, and now Gregor Clegane, all those who had a hand in murdering Elia and her children. Even Joffrey, who was not yet born when Elia died. I saw the boy perish with mine own eyes, clawing at his throat as he tried to draw a breath. Who else is there to kill? Do Myrcella and Tommen need to die so the shades of Rhaenys and Aegon can be at rest? Where does it end?”
“It ends in blood, as it began,” said Lady Nym. “It ends when Casterly Rock is cracked open, so the sun can shine on the maggots and the worms within. It ends with the utter ruin of Tywin Lannister and all his works.”
“The man died at the hand of his own son,” Ellaria snapped back. “What more could you wish?”
“I could wish that he died at my hand. … If he had, his dying would not have been so easy.”
Ellaria’s cheeks were wet with tears, her dark eyes shining. Even weeping, she has a strength in her, the captain thought.
“Oberyn wanted vengeance for Elia. Now the three of you want vengeance for him. I have four daughters, mind you. Your sisters. My Elia is fourteen, almost a woman. Obella is twelve, on the brink of maidenhood. They worship you, as Dorea and Loreza worship them. If you should die, must El and Obella seek vengeance for you, then Dorea and Loree for them? Is that how it goes, round and round forever? I ask again, where does it end? … I saw your father die. Here is his killer. Can I take a skull to bed with me, to give me comfort in the night? Will it make me laugh, write me songs, care for me when I am old and sick?” (A Dance with Dragons)

Everyone keeps mentioning the Hiddleconda and stuff.. am I the only one who thinks that his willy is not so big? I mean, looking at the gif where Oakley (in Unrelated) is running naked to the pool and at those cring-worthy pics with the grandpa white panties....I only saw rainbows and lies.. :( will Tommy boy disappoint us also in terms of willy size?

Oh my, are we opening this can of worms?

Personally,I think it has to be noteworthy because I have never in my life been able to see the bulge in every pair of pants a dude wears like you can with Hiddles. Maybe we need other visual aids?

It was someone’s job in “Kenneth Branagh’s Thor” to blur this monster bulge.

The blessing of the slo-mo snake hips + his hatred of underwear shows a clear and impressive dick print.

He sits like a man-whore because it’s uncomfortable for him to smush his considerable junk together in his tight ass pants.

Notice here how his hand bounces from the movement of the Conda?

elanid  asked:

hi! reading your posts has made me really aware of how neglected my education in the classics has been. i thought probably it makes sense to start with the odyssey, but...(a) is there a translation that you think is particularly good? and (b) is there something else that would be a more interesting/useful/compelling place to start? (or, alternatively, what else do you think is fun to recommend!)

a reading list for classics babs by e.e. rose:

EPIC

Epic is the central genre of ancient literature. Every other piece of classical lit is in dialogue with the epics somehow. Start with the Greeks and Homer’s Odyssey, which is about the hero Odysseus returning home from the Trojan War: the Penguin Classics translation by Rieu is very good. The Iliad (describing the doom of Achilles and the climactic days of the Trojan War itself) is imo better, but it’s sadder and grander and less immediately accessible. The great Roman epic is Virgil’s Aeneid, which is a national epic about the foundation of the Roman race - again, go for the Penguin Classics edition with David West’s translation. However bear in mind that reading the Aeneid is sort of like reading highly self-referential fanfiction in a fandom which has been going for centuries where the author assumes you already know all the tropes and are here for the good stuff. The particularly good stuff in the Aeneid is Books 2, 4 and 6, and I will fight anyone who says otherwise.


DRAMA

You might want to hit the Greek tragedies before you risk the Aeneid, since Virgil is absolutely bouncing off the tragic tropes of ruined cities and angry women. There are three tragedians: Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides. Aeschylus is the hardest to get to grips with, but the Agamemnon - telling the story of Agamemnon’s return from Troy and his murder at the hands of his wronged wife Clytemnestra - is another Central Text of Ancient Literature. Then you can do Sophocles, who is my favourite: I recommend Oedipus the King (in which Oedipus kills his father, marries his mother, regrets his choices, and accidentally gives birth to Freudian psychology) and its spiritual sequel Antigone, which tells the story of Oedipus’s cursed-because-incest sister/daughter. We have a lot more Euripides than the other two and some of them are kind of weird and noooot that great, but there are also some amazing ones - definitely read Medea and Bacchae and Trojan Women. Medea is my go-to ancient text for newbies: it’s a pretty quick and easy read and it’s incredible.

While I’m on Greek drama I should mention comedy: it’s waaay harder to read than tragedy because most of the jokes are topical satire and therefore no longer make sense, but the great exception is Aristophanes’ Lysistrata, where the only context you need is that there’s a war on and all the women are sick of it; from there it’s just dirty jokes all the way. If you’ve read Aeschylus and Euripides (& the Odyssey!) you could also go for the Frogs by the same author, which parodies all three.


MORE POETRY

We have plenty of surviving poetry that isn’t part of the epic tradition, and especially some really good love poems. Read what there is of Sappho - sadly we don’t have much! After that probably switch over to Romans because the Greeks get highly allusive and unfriendly to new readers pretty fast. (A lot of classical literature is actually like fandom imo - everyone knows the ‘canon’ of the epics, tragedies and didactic poems, and people are riffing on them all over the place and assume you know what they’re talking about.) 

For Romans I like Horace Odes, Catullus’s collected poems, and especially Ovid Amores. Ovid is my favourite anyway - smart, funny, irreverent, rebellious - and it’s a big undertaking, but the real Ovid to read is his epic-with-a-twist, the Metamorphoses, in which he casually decides to write all of mythology in one fifteen-book poem. It rewards reading right through but you can get away with dipping into it - I like Books 9 and 10! There’s also his pick-up guide for ancient Romans, Ars Amatoria (’The Art of Love’) which is a delight and also full of great tips for finding love. For example, you can go to the Circus, where everyone is already in a good mood and feeling worked up, and sit down next to someone who is sexy, and take it from there!

NB do not actually follow Ovid’s romantic advice, all his actual relationships appear to have been gigantic disasters.


WHAT ABOUT PROSE THO

Okay so maybe you’ve had enough poems and you want stuff with a bit of weight to it. You can start with history - specifically, Herodotus Histories, in which Herodotus tries to explain the Greco-Persian wars with reference to everything he knows about everything he’s ever seen, heard, guessed, or just totally made up. The book is part history, part travel writing, part absolute nonsense (at one point Herodotus explains, in all seriousness, the complexities of gold-mining in India where they use giant ants to dig up the gold) and completely charming. But it’s long! It’s a long one. 

For some shorter historical writing, try Plutarch’s Parallel Lives, which are biographical sketches of famous Greeks and Romans. Pick whichever one looks interesting to you and go for it. Another biographer is the fabulously gossipy Suetonius and his biographies of the first Twelve Caesars, the original emperors of Rome. Good for dirty details!

Philosophy is kind of a big deal in ancient literature and it’s very much not my thing, but if you are going to read philosophy, it should be a Platonic dialogue (like a little play! but starring people Plato knows), and it should be the Symposium, or: Six Weird Friends Go To A Dinner Party And Talk About Love Until A Hot Twink Bursts In And Complains That Socrates Isn’t Into Him.

Something that is my thing is ancient oratory, but it needs a lot of context to make sense. You could read Robert Harris’s novels about Cicero (the first one is called Imperium) and then read Cicero’s First Catilinarian Oration. Cicero is my own true darling anyway: pick up Shackleton-Bailey’s translation of his Selected Letters for a real insight into an actual person’s life and relationships in ancient Rome.

A little commission for @violin-cat about Xenomorphs having some fun with a female reader!

When you were a little girl, abandoned places used to scare you. The darkness, the emptiness. Knowing that so many things had taken place here, be they good or bad.

Now, as an adult, they are endlessly fascinating, for the exact same reasons that they used to scare you. It isn’t often you get to explore abandoned places, what with juggling school and a job, not to mention social interactions, so when you do, you savor every moment. Capture every moment, too.

When going urban exploring, you never go without your camera. It’s big and heavy and bulky, but it shoots the cleanest, sharpest-looking pictures you have ever seen.

This time, you had found an old hospital with a gruesome story, so there was a good chance it was haunted too. Allegedly, this hospital used to house patients with tuberculosis, and god knows that the treatment those patients received back in the days wasn’t too gentle.

So, naturally, you had to go investigate it.

Toni Graphia on the latest deviations from Diana Gabaldon’s novel:

“We knew this was going to be a big shock to the audience. We don’t even like to say ‘cuts’ because we love the books. We hate to leave out anything. But we do have to simplify quite a lot just for TV and we only have an hour to tell the story.”

“It’s so jam-packed. Sometimes we reluctantly leave stuff behind and we did a lot of that in the second half of this season, not just in this episode. There is just so much. A lot of people wondered if we were splitting Voyager into two seasons because there is so much but we would rather have a jam-packed, exciting one season than two seasons where we tried to play everything and it wouldn’t be as dramatic as it was in the book. This is one of the most dense books in the series so we picked our favorite parts and tried to do them justice.”

Toni Graphia on leaving out some stories:

“We did explore an early draft of it where exactly what happens in the book happens in the script. But it hit all of us that we made such a big deal in [season one’s] 'The Reckoning’ episode of Claire teaching Jamie that beating someone is not always the answer and isn’t a good thing to do to someone you love, even if it happened to you as a kid. Jamie agreed to never hit her again, so we thought why would that not extend to a child or a teenager?….. Choosing to not hit someone, that shows growth in him. This is one of the ways that he’s been changed by Claire. He comes up with a different way, a really nasty chore, and in fact that is almost worse for Young Ian because he was made to do something only the young children are assigned to do. We did research on what the worst thing kids had to do back then, and it was make dung cakes. So if he was going to act like a child, he had to do child’s work.”

Toni Graphia on Claire learning Jamie has another wife:

“We knew this was going to be a big shock to the audience, and non-book readers would really have trouble understanding why Jamie would marry this woman who had threatened Claire. If you remember, we deviated way back in the [season one] witch trial episode where we had chosen to have Laoghaire come and testify. In the book, she sends an anonymous note or something that implicates Claire but she doesn’t actually show up and testify against Claire in court, which was a pretty awful thing to do.“

“We had a lot more to answer for with Laoghaire because this wasn’t just a girl with a crush – she got Claire arrested and actually testified against her in front of everyone. It would be hard to swallow that he married Laoghaire. So that’s why we showed that scene where you see Jamie falling in love with the two young girls and not Laoghaire, because they were so sweet to him during a time when he was really lonely and depressed. They brought him out of his shell, and it was the first time he felt happiness again after losing Claire. He didn’t even know they were Laoghaire’s daughters and they brought him joy. He never got to be a father to Willie [Clark Butler] or Brianna [Sophie Skelton] and wanted a family so he made this match and ultimately it didn’t even work.”

“It’s more understandable when you see it play out this way. We even considered having Jamie tell Claire about it immediately [when she returns to the past] but we agreed, obviously with Diana, that if he told her that right out of the gate, he just got the love of his life back after 20 years so is he really going to tell her he married her enemy? He would have risked losing her – she would have run screaming back to the stones immediately.”

Tonia Graphia on Ned Gowan:

“Jamie wanted to reach Ned Gowan to find out if his second marriage was even valid so he could have good news to tell her with it. "Like, 'Don’t worry, it’s not a real marriage because you’re back.’ It will cause a lot of talk, I know, but we had to pick the best path we thought and go with it. It made sense to us.”

Tonia Graphia on Claire’s reaction after knowing about Laoghaire:

“We just didn’t think that Claire would go all the way back to the stones. We think she’d be upset and leave for a while to clear her head and need space, but we wanted to have Claire in that scene because the one that Laoghaire is actually mad at is Claire. She loves Jamie is just upset and jealous, and knows they haven’t been together in quite a long time but she just doesn’t want another woman stealing Jamie away, especially this woman who she believes stole him away all those years ago. We thought it was more credible that she would try to shoot Claire and it would be more interesting and dramatic to see it play out between the three of them.”

Toni Graphia on the idea of Jamie and Claire telling Jenny the truth:

“I know the biggest story here is Jamie, Claire and Laoghaire, but I think it’s heartbreaking to see these two ladies who used to be like sisters and loved each other have to come to this uneasy truce. She can tell that she’s not being told the whole story of where Claire went and how she’s back now.”

“Unlike Murtagh, Jenny hasn’t traveled the world and hasn’t even stepped off Lallybroch, so there’s no way she’d be open-minded enough to believe that Claire was from the future. It would then open the can of worms of would Jenny tell Ian because she has no secrets from her husband and we didn’t want too many people to know. So ultimately while we toyed with this idea of telling Jenny the secret, we didn’t. But I thought that story of Jenny and Claire was a very rich one to tell.”

On a Monday morning in June, Simon Tam woke up at his home in Portland, Ore., to 753 notifications blowing up his phone.

“At that point, I knew something had happened,” Tam said. The Supreme Court had finally resolved his nearly eight year fight with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office over the name of his band, The Slants.

The justices ruled, unanimously to strike the section of a federal trademark law that prohibited the use of disparaging and offensive terms. The trademark office had cited part of a 71-year-old trademark law, Section 2A of the Lanham Act, when it prohibited Tam from registering The Slants, a slur against Asians, as the name of the band.

The Court’s ruling agreed with Tam and the other band members that the law had infringed on their free speech. But in the process, The Slants case had opened up a whole can of worms involving other offensive or racist terms, most notably the debate over the Washington Redskins. The team’s owner, Dan Snyder, said in a statement that he was “thrilled” with the decision.

And sure enough, the football team has since won its own trademark fight. A group of Native American activists led by Amanda Blackhorse, along with the Department of Justice, gave up their longstanding court efforts to ban the team from using that name.

Which was something Simon Tam and his band mates never anticipated when they formed their Asian-American rock group more than a decade before.

anonymous asked:

If someone has an 'enhanced metabolism' that processes drugs faster, is it easier or harder for them to overdose? Wouldn't they uptake more of a drug quicker, therefor making it more dangerous? I see this a lot with Captain America and Spider-man and such, where the dose of various medicines will be raised and I'm not sure that makes sense?

…oooooh you sure have opened a can of pharmacokinetic worms here….

Simply put, whether the drug never reaches therapeutic blood levels, or exceeds them, depends on 1) how the character’s metabolism works, and 2) what kind of drug they ingested (skip to the bolded part at the end of the post to get the tl;dr).

When you take a drug, the following happens (this process is sometimes denoted as “ADME” or “LADME”:

  1. The drug must separate from the vehicle that brought it into the body (for example, a pill must disintegrate in the stomach, releasing the drug, or an IM or IV drug must separate from its solution): Liberation
  2. The drug must be absorbed into the bloodstream (for a pill this would mean getting absorbed through the lining of the stomach or intestine, for IM injections this means getting absorbed by blood vessels running through the muscle where the drug is): Absorption
  3. The drug must be deposited from the bloodstream into a location where it can be used: Distribution
  4. The drug must be metabolized (broken down or changed by a biologic process, creating different chemicals called metabolites): Metabolism
  5. The drug metabolites must be excreted from the body: Elimination

The first end of this process is largely driven by regular old chemistry. A pill has to dissolve to release the drug, and assuming that these characters have similar stomach/small intestine environments, this is not going to be different for them.

Absorption is mostly driven by a concentration gradient (substances like to be at the same concentration across membranes, so if there’s more drug in the small intestine than there is in the blood around the small intestine, the drug gets absorbed into the blood as the concentrations try to equalize), so this too is probably not going to be all that different. Even distribution is (mostly) driven by that concentration gradient, so, again, this process wouldn’t necessarily be any different from that of a normal human.

Now, the latter half of this process is a lot more dependent on a person’s specific physiology. When we talk about metabolism, we’re talking about how the body changes ingested chemicals into something excrete-able. For many drugs, this change involves enzymes in the liver.

About 6 different liver enzymes are responsible for the metabolism of about 90% of drugs. Each different enzyme is responsible for the breakdown of a different group of drugs.

Some people have genetic mutations that cause more or less of an enzyme to be produced. People who make more of an enzyme metabolize that group of drugs faster, while people who make less of them metabolize those drugs more slowly.

Through certain genetic tests, real life people can be designated one of the following for any given group of drugs:

  • Ultrarapid Metabolizers have the genetic wiring to produce way, way more copies of an enzyme than the typical person, and metabolize the corresponding drugs very, very quickly
  • Extentive Metabolizers produce more copies of the enzyme than most people
  • Intermediate Metabolizers produce an average number of copies
  • Poor Metabolizers produce significantly fewer copies than average, leaving them unable to metabolize the drugs normally

Now, remember how I said it also has to do with what kind of drug it is? There are two different kinds of drugs I’m talking about: Active Drugs and Prodrugs. Active drugs are able to be used by the body as-is. Prodrugs only have an effect once they’ve been metabolized by the body into a different substance.

Say someone is an ultrarapid metabolizer of an active drug. They take the drug, it gets absorbed and distributed like normal, but they rapidly metabolize it into inactive substances and excrete it. This person would either get no effect from a typical dose, or only a very slight one, because the drug is never allowed to build up to effective levels in their blood before getting metabolized.

But say that same person is a poor metabolizer of a different active drug. They take the drug, it gets absorbed, but they only very slowly are able to metabolize and excrete it. The drug ends up building up in their blood and staying there longer, possibly causing an overdose of the drug at a typical dose.

The situation would be reversed if the drugs were prodrugs instead. An ultrarapid metabolizer of a prodrug ends up metabolizing too much of the active substance too quickly, possibly causing overdose, while a poor metabolizer of a prodrug maybe never metabolize enough to get effective concentrations of the end substance (check out this post on the prodrug codeine).

Finally, applying this real-life precedent to Captain America, or Flash, or Spider-Man canon evidence, you would have to assume that due to their respective super powers, they all produce a metric sh*tton of liver enzymes capable of metabolizing drugs super fast and hella effective kidneys for excreting them. Typical doses of active drugs would barely work on them, while prodrugs might have a short, but incredibly strong effect on them.

Look, objectively, Clarke knows that Bellamy’s a pretty attractive individual. A collective sigh goes up around camp whenever he wrangles his shirt off (completely unnecessarily) to do some mundane task or the other. His smile can reduce a normal, functioning being into a swooning mess. Monty claims to be forever changed after the one time he witnessed Bellamy emerging from the shower.

But, still. It’s no excuse for Roma to be hanging all over him.

“Her head is going to spontaneously combust if you keep glaring at her like that,” Raven remarks, drawing up next to her. The smirk on her face is enough for Clarke to direct the force of her glare over to her instead, crossing her arms over her chest. Unperturbed, she continues, “And is it normal for there to be a vein throbbing so close to your forehead? Because I’m getting a little worried.”

“I’m fine,” she huffs, gritting her teeth at the sound of Roma’s high-pitched, lilting giggle. Bellamy’s response is lost in the clamor of the crowd, but she recognizes the soft quirk of his lips, the sardonic arch of his brow. Amused. (It’s one of her favorite looks on him, even though she’d never admit it. Not to his face, at least.)

Raven looks thoroughly unconvinced by that. “Yeah, I’m having a little difficulty believing that considering your face is currently a unflattering shade of puce.”

The scathing response on the tip of her tongue dissolves at the sight of Roma’s hand curling over his bicep, squeezing, and she’s moving before she can rethink it; stomping towards them with all the grace and subtlety of someone who’s had a little too much to drink.

He brightens when he spots her; the expression quickly morphing into concern when he catches sight of her face. “Clarke. Is everything okay?”

“Great,” she manages, flat. “I just— I think we should rethink our plans to send a team out past Trikru territory. Do you have a minute to talk? Alone?”

“Yeah, sure.” He goes, completely unfazed; his hand coming down to rest on the small of her back as he steers her towards his tent. Then, looking over his shoulder, “See you around, Roma.”

“See you,” Clarke adds, shooting her a tight, close-lipped smile before striding off. (For some strange, unfathomable reason, the moment fills her with a kind of smug triumph that leaves her grinning throughout the rest of the day.)

BBRae Week: Day 1

Unorthodox Sleeping Arrangements vs Pining


Get out.”

Finality.

It was in the way she enunciated every syllable.

Beast Boy wanted to retaliate, to have one more word before his fate was sealed, but Raven had made it vividly clear that she was no longer interested in talking. She threw his pillow at his face, followed shortly by a makeshift blanket.

Out,” she repeated herself, this time with more fervor, pointing an index finger at the door behind him. Just in case he’d thought she wasn’t being serious.

He hadn’t expected the impact, and the soft fabric hit him square in the nose before flopping into his open arms.

It was true; he was still annoyed and maybe a bit angry with her, but the thought of sleeping apart from her for the night terrified him.

He wanted to apologize. He wanted to swallow his pride, take back everything he’d said, and make things right with them again.

Anything so that he didn’t have to spend the night wondering if he’d sullied such a good thing that they had going. Knowing and lingering on the fact that he’d hurt her so deep, she couldn’t even stand the sight of him anymore, was tearing him to pieces on the inside.

Rules to surviving a break up

Now we’ve all been there. It could be a long term relationship, or you might not have been girlfriend-boyfriend status but you were a ‘thing’. Whether they ended it, or you ended it, or it was mutual it doesn’t really matter, feelings of sadness and sometimes guilt are there.
I wouldn’t say I’m an expert at break ups, if I did I may as well give up on love but there are some things I have to do in order to pick myself up after I’ve struck out (yet again).

1. Cry. Now depending on how long you were together, or how badly you were hurt will mean you might cry for a day or longer than that. Stick a sad film or, as sad as it sounds and something I totally haven’t done (I’ve so done it), cry in the shower and or bath. At least then you can wash your face afterwards and if anyone asks you got got shampoo in your eye. It’s a win win to hide the ugly crying, if you’re a beautiful crier you are blessed.

2. Change your bedding. This might not be for everyone, but usually the person you were seeing has been in your room. Either to hang out or you know… have a thumb war. They will have sat on your bed. I don’t know about you, but I always have to change my bedding after a break up. Fresh start, fresh sheets to help my battered little heart heal.

3. Talk about, or write about, your feelings. To your mum, your sister, your brother, your dad, your bestie, failing that write a letter to the person you’ve stopped seeing and get it all out. Then rip it up, don’t send it unless you want to open a can of worms.

4. Depending on how it ended, unfollow them off everything. Don’t feel petty about blocking them, you need time to heal. You can’t do that if they’re posting pictures and being tagged in things. Facebook, twitter, Instagram, snapchat, they are all the devils little minions when you’re going through a break up.

5. Do things the make you happy. See friends, take up a hobby, all the cliche things people say do work. If you’ve wanted to try something new, now is the time to do it. Even if you suck at it, at least you tried.

6. Lastly, in some very rare cases you can be friends with someone you had feelings for. But mostly, you need to let them go. They came into your life as a lesson, not a blessing. Some ex’s get sour over time, and then you regret letting them stay in your life.

So they are my tips for getting over a break up. There are millions of posts out there to chose from, but I thought I’d throw in my two cents.

Remember, they are not it for you. They’ll be another one lining up to take their place in no time.

It’s an Extraterrestrial Matter

Listen, this is a headcanon, it’s not fact, so don’t come at me if there are inaccuracies, it’s just how I feel Kara is as a character, okay, and of course I had to write it through Sanvers’ eyes. Enjoy! P.s. Sorry for any spelling and/or grammar mistakes!

“What’s the deal with your sister?" 

Alex looks to her right to see Maggie coming up beside her, leaning against the counter, the detective is staring straight forward, as Alex had been previously before, watching the scene, the family, in front of them, arguing and laughing over a game of scrabble that Alex had excused herself from only to get another glass of wine - and only after she had threatened the lives of her friends not to change any of the tiles or cheat… Alex took her scrabble very seriously. 

The agent frowns at her girlfriend and looks back out at the scene, Kara was flustered, laughing in her over top way that Alex had seen her do around James, a lot, but this time it was directed at something Lena Luthor had just said and the others were staring at Kara like she was insane. 

Alex chuckles a little and turns her back on the scene, focusing now on Maggie who turns her body towards Alex. "What do you mean?” Alex questions with confusion and Maggie looks at Kara briefly. 

“Listen, I know the whole gaydar thing isn’t a science-” Alex laughs at that and Maggie rolls her eyes. “I mean you definitely don’t have one-" 

Hey!“ Alex protests. So maybe she was a little oblivious when it came to that sort of thing - not that it really mattered since she had Maggie, she didn’t need anything else. ”You’re the one who read me wrong, remember?“ 

"Okay but that’s just because you started flirting with me all of a sudden.” Maggie retorts and Alex narrows her eyes. 

“I was not flirting, I was being a friend." 

"Right, and that worked out didn’t it Danvers?” Maggie was teasing her, of course she was, and, if it wasn’t for Maggie’s beautiful stupid grin, and her dimpled cheeks, and shining brown eyes, Alex would’ve teased her right back but she was just a little, well, a lot, distracted. 

“You kissed me.” Alex reminds her and Maggie crosses her arms and raises an eyebrow, her full blown smile falling into a smirk and god was it sexy. 

“You kissed me first.” Maggie responds and Alex blushes a little at the memory. She was so embarrassed by that day, still, despite it working out in a good way, the best way possible, but, still, it got her here, standing in Kara’s kitchen with her girlfriend, she still couldn’t believe it, she had a girlfriend

“You were asking about my sister,” Alex says, changing the subject, she’d let Maggie win that round but she wouldn’t win the next one. “I have to warn you though, if you’re about to say something bad against her, I wouldn’t.” Alex may like Maggie a lot, hell, maybe even love, but if she said something against Kara, if the pair hadn’t got along well, then Alex doesn’t even know what she would do. 

“No, no, I love little Danvers,” Maggie says dismissively and Alex chuckles at the nickname that Maggie has bestowed upon her little sister. “No, I mean, I just can’t get a read on her…” Maggie says thoughtfully and Alex knits her eyebrows together in confusion. 

“She’s clearly flirting with Lena, well, she’s being flirted with,” Alex turns to look at them again to see Kara fiddling nervously with her glasses while Lena just smiles and eyes her little sister. The agent narrows her eyes suspiciously at them, they were getting awfully close these past few weeks after Kara had saved Lena from a kryptonite explosion. “but your sister clearly likes her.” Alex tunes back into Maggie’s voice and turns away from the gathering for a moment. 

“But then she’s also had relationships with guys right? Like James… and that Adam dude you told me about,” Alex almost laughs at the concentration on Maggie’s face and raises one eyebrow and smiles in amusement; it was like she was trying to figure out some extreme math equation and not Alex’s little sister’s love life. “and I get the sense that she’s not straight, she clearly has something going on with James, and obviously Lena, I mean, that one is really obvious-" 

"Are you trying to figure out if my sister is straight or gay?” Alex interrupts Maggie’s thoughts and the detective presses her lips into a thin line and places her hands on her hips in exasperation. 

“No case left unsolved,” The detective states and Alex laughs at her girlfriend and Maggie rolls her eyes. Alex holds her stomach a little from all of her laughter, taking a deep breath to help replenish her oxygen supply, even her eyes were watering. “Fine, is she bi?” Maggie asks outwardly and Alex manages to gather herself, and takes a deep breath to compose herself, before responding. 

“Kind of,” Alex answers and Maggie turns her head to the side and a crease forms on her brow in confusion. “she came to Earth when she twelve." 

"So…?” Maggie asks, still not getting it, she shakes her head and Alex takes a step closer. 

So, Krypton wasn’t like Earth, it didn’t have gay, straight, bi, it was just, you meet someone you like, you mate them,” Alex explains with a shrug. “I mean, I’m sure some kryptonians did have preferences for some genders but, they were efficient guys up there, reproduction was done in like tubes, actually, Kal is the only naturally conceived kryptonian in centuries, but, on Krypton, they were just encouraged to marry whoever they fell in love with, and Kara grew up with that incentive.” Alex says and Maggie listens intently, clearly very invested in the details - and she calls Alex a nerd. “Plus they were restricted to one baby per family and Kara’s DNA is really complicated, who knows if same sex couples could have biological babies, the Kryptonians were a really advanced species, plus, hello, aliens.” Maggie laughs at that and Alex smiles in response. 

“To answer your question, Kara’s kryptonian, she’ll choose her mate based on compatibility, on what she likes about them, not on gender, so I guess she’s pansexual, if you want to earthly brand her." 

"What did the Kryptonians class as being compatible?” Maggie asks curiously and Alex shrugs, they don’t know an awful lot about the kryptonians, only what Kara can remember, what Kal had learned from the fortress and the other pieces of information gathered from their pods. 

“Who knows? Probably intelligence, to them we’re like cave men who could only dream about being on their level.” Maggie smiles and leans in close to Alex, wrapping her arms around her waist and Alex smiles gazing down at her girlfriend. “But, you know, Kara also grew up with Earth’s social construct and, compared to Krypton, it’s pretty fucked up. So people automatically assume she’s straight, and I guess when I came out to her I reminded her of Krypton, about how being straight isn’t the only option." 

"Enter Lena right?” Maggie asks with amusement, because Alex is oblivious but she’s not that oblivious, and Alex laughs leaning her head forward to press it against Maggie’s. 

“Enter Lena Luthor.” She confirms - she did have the intelligence. 

They stand in silence for a moment, just enjoying one another’s company, Maggie can feel Alex’s thumbs gently stroking at the back of her neck and she’s more than willing, more than content, just to stand there and not move… but she has to ask something else, because she’s already opened the Krypton can of worms, she might as well go all the way. 

“So Mike,” Maggie says and Alex’s eyes flutter open, momentarily distracting Maggie, and she pauses when she feels Alex’s thumbs stop stroking and she almost whines for her to continue. “He’s from decks- dacks- Daxam?” Maggie’s face scrunches up adorably and Alex grins at her fumble with the planet’s name. 

“Yeah,” Alex responds. “same social construct as Krypton, except, maybe a little looser on its morals, party central according to Kara." 

"So that’s why James calls Mon-El frat boy.” Maggie chuckles and Alex nods. She’d noticed that James and Maggie had been getting along quite well recently and she loved that her friends seemed to love Maggie, a lot, because they were her family and they were all important to her. 

“Yep, but it was colonized by Krypton way back when, before they left the planet to itself, but, you know, the whole be with who you want to be with thing was still pretty strong, hell, according to Mon-El they even had polyamorous relationships.” Alex explains and Maggie nods her head in understanding. 

“So you totally pick up on the whole Winn and Mon-El thing too right?” Maggie asks and Alex laughs out loud this time, nodding her head repeatedly, because of course she picked up on that - Winn was the least subtle person she knew, he was even worse than Kara. “I’d like to hear more about Krypton, it sounds fascinating.” Maggie admits and Alex smiles softly. 

“I’m sure Kara would tell you some stories,” Alex says. “she likes to keep the memory of Krypton alive in her head, so she doesn’t forget it, she’d be more than happy to talk to you about it.” Alex says and Maggie nods her head, she might just have to ask the blonde about the planet. 

“Oh snap!” Alex’s head peers over Maggie as she hears Winn’s excited yell. 

“Alex! Lena just beat your score!” Kara shouts and Alex narrows her eyes. 

“Oh hell no.” Alex mutters and Maggie chuckles, placing a kiss to Alex’s cheek, she turns her around and past her butt towards the living room where the game of scrabble was commencing. 

“You’re going down Luthor!” Alex says and Maggie shakes her head at how competitive Alex was especially when it came to scrabble. 

“That’s not the first time I’ve heard that before.” Lena says with a smirk and Maggie’s eyes widen while Kara, who was beside her, starts blushing to a blood red, almost like she might explode. 

Kara Zor-El of Krypton was such a prude.

anonymous asked:

he /thought/ he was in love, but instead actually obsessed... so did ishim think cas was obsessed with dean but hes actually in love 🤔

ask n. 2   “ishim is a monster incapable of healthy love” That’s why I don’t really like that comparison. They got compared to something that wasn’t really love, but more like a stalker obsessed with a poor woman. 

(This turned way too long, so here’s a recap: I discuss the comparison between Ishim and Cas /and respective relationships with humans/, which tells us who Cas is by contrast; I also draw a parallel between Ishim and Godstiel, aka Cas’ darkest side – that Cas still managed to overcome on his own, because despite everything he’s always had a good heart and good intentions; also, are we supposed to reconsider the nature - platonic or potentially romantic - of Dean and Cas’ relationship in s6?)

Hello there, my friends! Unfortunately, you have just opened a can of worms, since I was writing some meta on the parallel between Ishim and Cas. 
To answer the first question, well, yes. Ishim (like many angels) doesn’t understand human feelings and emotions. Not only he’s a manipulative and abusive douchebag, he also lacks the experience to understand what love is (Cas, on the other hand, has been human..). 
So, when he sees the bond between Dean and Cas, he compares it to what he knows. And what does he know? The love he knows is obsession, rotten to the core; the human he wanted never loved him back; he thinks she made him weaker (and this is just textbook abusive behavior). So when he sees how far Cas has fallen (subtext: for a human), of course he thinks Cas is in his same situation. 

You know why we’re meant to stay away from them humans? Hmm? It’s not because we’re a danger to them. They’re a danger to us.

Yeah, he’s talking about both Dean and Sam, but casually Sam is never called Cas’ human weakness (context: we’re talking romantic love, throwback to Metatron saying Cas was in love with… humanity, just to point out one episode later that Cas’ goal was all about saving one human), nor he is in the climatic scene where Ishim goes after humani– erm, Dean (hint: Sam wasn’t supposed to be there because Cas loves Sam, but he’s not in love with Sam). 

Now, on to question #2. Too much exposition is deadly to a story. A great way to show who a character is or what they’ve become is… to contrast them with who they’re not (same goes for relationships).

Death and Levi

The other day, my friend @kyojinofbraveos asked if any of us believed Levi would be killed by the end of snk. I realized that I have a lot of thoughts about that, so I decided to flesh them out by writing this post. 

The short answer is that while I have no idea what Isayama is planning plot-wise, I think that thematically it would make sense for Levi to die (depending on the manner of death of course). And not just because he’s a tragic hero with a tragic life so of course he’s going to be killed. No, there’s more to it than that, so I wanted to take this chance to examine his development a bit and explain why I think Levi’s death would be thematically appropriate. There’s so much more to analyze about his character, but I’ll stick to the aspect that is most relevant to the point I’m trying to make.

Andrew’s pipe dreams are never as unattainable as he thinks (Andrew and Kids Part Five)

PART ONE; PART TWO; PART THREE; PART FOUR

“I can’t believe you’re doing this to me,” says Andrew with a scowl on what had initially promised to be a lazy Friday morning, pulling on his shoes extra slowly out of spite. 

“Don’t be so melodramatic,” replies Neil, rolling his eyes. “It’s just lunch. They’ll have ice cream.”

Andrew gives him a flat look. “Neil, I’m thirty-three years old. Do you really think I can be persuaded to go somewhere because they’ll have ice cream?”

“Yes,” replies Neil simply. 

Andrew narrows his eyes, but goes to grab the car keys. “I’d better not regret this.”

“You once travelled five hundred miles with me because I promised you ice cream with unlimited sprinkles,” says Neil airily, tailing him to the door.

“No,” says Andrew firmly, turning to face him. “I travelled five hundred miles with you because it’s you.”

Neil’s entire being softens and Andrew can’t help but draw him close, leaning in to press a firm kiss to his upturned lips. Honesty has always been the foundation of their relationship, but sometimes he surprises himself with how much he can admit to Neil these days. 

“You didn’t regret it though, did you?” asks Neil quietly, face still a mere centimetre from Andrew’s own. “Meeting Clara and Willow?”

No, he really doesn’t. He hates to admit it, but Clara Boyd-Wilds had been the child who had set all of this in motion. The one who had first changed his mind about all kids being irritating brats. The one who had opened his eyes to a world of opportunities. The one who had inspired him to quit smoking.

“It’s just lunch,” repeats Neil softly, looking at Andrew with that expression he hates, and his heart feels both light and heavy as it jumps in his chest. 

“Let’s go,” says Andrew, opening the front door, and Neil follows without hesitation.

Between Love Or Love [Two] | Suga

[One]


ONE YEAR LATER…

Usually I would wake up to the bright light of the morning sun but today is one of those days where a familiar cry starts ringing in my ear. I look over to the baby monitor where my baby girl is standing in her crib.

I drag my feet down the dark hallway towards the nursery room. The sun wasn’t even out yet but my baby was.

I turn the light on, “What’s the matter, Yeona?” She looks up at me with wet eyes, “Huh? What’s wrong? It’s too early for you to be crying.” It’s not until I pick her up that I begin to smell the problem. “Oh you want to give eomma a present this early in the morning. You shouldn’t have.”

The nine months of my pregnancy came and went so fast. I gave birth to a healthy baby girl. I moved away from Seoul in order to raise her in a quieter environment. It’s only a few hours away but I don’t think I can ever find the courage to go back. Not when I know what to expect if I go back.

Yoongi never contacted me after that night I left his studio. Throughout the year, I kept building the guts to tell Yoongi everything but each time I tried I lost all will. When I held Yeona for the first time, I knew that I couldn’t give her up like I planned. She looks so much like Yoongi from her eyes to her button nose. I fell in love with her at first sight.
