this show got it right with these two

PSA

For people who are feeling saddened by Iron Fist’s lack of diversity, I present to you Agents of SHIELD. While the first season is not the greatest or most diverse by any means, the remaining three seasons are full of suspenseful plot lines, intriguing characters, and yes - lots of cultural diversity.

Out of the seven main characters, four of them are POCs, and another four of the seven are female leads. Not only did the writers of the show cast an Asian-American for the lead, they also COMPLETELY REWOTE her character to represent that. And get this - never once has this character, Daisy, been used as a brainless romantic interest. No, this girl has depths and she is. damn. right. fierce. Not to mention, she’s got some effing awesome superpowers.

And of the three main superpowered Inhumans on the show, two are female and all three are POCs. Not to mention, the one guy on the team, Joey, is openly gay.

Not only is this show a beacon of diversity, it’s girl-powered as hell. If you’re feeling disappointed in the wake of Iron Fist, I recommend giving this show a try. I promise you that you will not regret it.

Chapter 7 of Legion- Two For the Price of One (Warning....spoilers)

Tonight’s episode of Legion was AMAZING. This show never disappoints.

Noah Hawley took it to a whole new level though when we got not one David Haller, but two. 

While David’s in the coffin that the Shadow King put him in at the end of Chapter 6 freaking out, his subconscious creates a rational version of himself that happens to be British…..

With a British accent….

With Dan Stevens’ British accent…

That’s right boys and girls. Tonight we got David Haller talking to Dan Stevens. 

Noah Hawley, thank you. I haven’t encountered something this utterly meta since the Mork and Mindy episode Mork Meets Robin Williams.

Outsiders S2E9

Haven’t done one of these in a couple of episodes, but I had lots of thoughts after last night! So jumping right in…

G’Win

Well. I’d been wondering if we were supposed to ignore the fact that Gillian was obviously pregnant. Guess not! My first feeling about this was nervousness, tbh. I felt nervous because I couldn’t imagine two babies on the show at the same time and I immediately got it in my head that one of their babies wouldn’t make it. Then I remembered that G’Win had already lost a baby once and I found myself getting all worked up and looking way too deep into things.  I’d just rather not think about all that right now. Anyway, I loved when Emelye asked G’Win if she knew whose the baby was and she said “Mine.”  👏🏾 Now, if she is as pregnant as she appears to be, I feel like Lil Foster HAS to be the father. If it were Big or Asa, she’d be closer to where Sally Ann is in her pregnancy… Unless of course she was messing around with someone else we didn’t know about I mean…

Lil Foster

Go him. He gets to show out for at least two episodes after his ordeal.

Wade

Every scene with Wade is pure entertainment to me lately. The guy cracks me up. Everything at the church. Yes. Thomas Wright is really good with the emotional/serious scenes too. I’m really happy that he went on a date! Dana (?) seems sweet. She is the first new character in a while that hasn’t made me suspicious.

Ledda

I’m glad she is well, but the mystical healing thing is kind of weird for me. I hope there is something big in store for her character that makes that scene… and everything she and her family went through regarding her fatal diagnosis… critical to the story. I just found myself wondering why Elon didn’t hug that poor little boy who died on the mountain. I’m sure more will be revealed about why exactly he went to Ledda though. Wade’s family is obviously connected to the mountain… maybe Big Foster and his very close kin, like Elon, are the link.

Sasil (and Big Foster since he spent some time with them)

Happy Birthday Sally Ann! That was a sweet little surprise. I loved that her favorite restaurant was that quaint little place and I love that Hasil knows when to splurge a little… learning about money under the stress he has been learning about it could have bred an extreme penny pincher. It was sad to see the mood of their date get messed up so quickly, but probably best they addressed the things they did then rather than later. Sally Ann is not afraid to call Hasil on his shit and I love it! She was not about to let him lie to her face. We don’t usually see him do that. He leaves out details… lies by omission, so I had to give him a little tsk when he pulled that, “I don’t know what you’re talkin’ ‘bout.”

Sally Ann said, “Don’t do that,” and he fessed up real quick. Good boy. He isn’t a push over either though. She got all worked up and ready to leave but he was like “Sit down.” I love it. I guess they were able to have their meal because the next time we saw them, Hasil was buying her flowers.

 *side note, paying for flowers has to feel pretty 🤔 to him… but again, #reasonstosplurge

Sally Ann continued to show her spunk the moment she recognized Big Foster. I would have liked to hear whatever he was going to say though. He opened with “Miss…” trying to be all polite with his pulled back ponytail and sweat jacket haha. He got on my nerves back at Casa Sasil. Got on Sally Ann’s too lol, she made that very clear. I love, love, love that she isn’t afraid to speak her mind. I wish I could have jumped into the screen and escorted his ass out of the house myself. Especially when he interrupted their “feeling” talk. Like, Foster, you don’t even know the trouble they’ve had communicating lately. Let them get it out! Please! They are doing better though. Two weeks in a row Hasil has called her family. Honestly, that whole scene in the kitchen had some sexy tension to it. Another good reason for Big Foster to disappear. I’m here for steamy kitchen bickering if it ends nicely. The way Hasil touched her face/neck/chest before he left?

And I love it more because that’s what he always does.

Anyway, so Hasil decided go along with this insane kidnapping idea (I hope Sally Ann hung out with Frida or something for the rest of her birthday!). The ONLY way I see him not ending up in prison for this is either A) Haylie dies and is never seen or heard from again and the car they put her in is somehow incinerated or B) The clan does a NUMBER on her up there and gets her to see the light… she is so profoundly moved that she is 100% on the clan’s side and does not press any charges… in fact, she does all she can to help save the clan. B is more likely, but it’s still out there. I just cannot fathom a situation where she escapes or is freed or whatever and Hasil doesn’t get in major trouble. Things are getting pretty rough! Hasil is constantly doing illegal things… fight club… jail breaks…kidnapping. This makes it harder and harder for them to safely stay in town. Especially since his disguises are shit at disguising. Now the mountain is poisoned… of course, just as there is some glimmer of hope that maybe Big Foster could make it so they could go up. I don’t need Sally Ann and her baby up there right now. I’m worried. Not sure what the best thing for them to do is.

At least Sasil ended on a sweet note. Reading to the baby and teaching Hasil? Can’t get more precious than that.

🐢🐢🐢

Another side note… I read an interview with the executive producer this week and he said that season two pretty much takes place over the span of one month. So I guess at the end of the season, Sally Ann would be at most 3 months pregnant. The same interview said that time would likely be built into season three (if there is a season three 😳). I’m guessing that’d mean a little time jump, which would probably mean G’Win would have already had her baby at the start of next season and Sally Ann would be very pregnant. I’d be cool with that. I’m getting way ahead of things though. Way ahead haha.  Oh and where is James? Like I guess he really meant what he said when Sally Ann drove off because he doesn’t even seem to be looking for her or anything?? Whatever I guess. 💁🏾 That’d just be more trouble for Sasil and they sure don’t need any of that.

His Sassy Little Minion

So…this morning, he and I got there - to the high school - at the same time. I just made it to his room first ‘cause he had to go sign in and whatnot. He eventually showed up like two minutes before I had to leave. He had stopped to check on a kid who’s on crutches before he made it to his room.

When he made it to his room, he smiled at me as he pulled his keys outta his pocket to unlock the door. He let out a quiet sigh as he walked in. I was right behind him.

“You ok?” I asked.

He looked over his shoulder and grinned at me. “I’m better now that you’re here.”

I grinned and Um sure I was blushing 'cause his grin grew even more. He slipped his duffel bag off his shoulder and slung it under his desk like it was a bowling ball. It had me laughing which had him chuckling.

“Hey. Would you mind going and opening that other door for those heathens?” He smirked at me.

I raised an eyebrow and sucked in a deep breath through my teeth.

“Hmmm…I dunno. That’s a long way to walk for some heathens.” I teased.

He laughed before giving me the puppy dog look. “For me? Will you do it for me? Pretty please?”

I playfully huffed and sighed. “I guess. I can do it for you.”

I licked my lips, just being sassy 'cause we were both teasing each other. He bit his bottom lip and deepened the puppy dog look. I started walking to the other door on the opposite side of the room.

I opened it and realized that the lights were still off. I looked over at Dale; he was grabbing his water jug outta the fridge.

“Hey. You want me to turn the lights?” I asked.

“Yes, please. If you don’t mind. Apparently it’s important or something for the kids to see what they’re actually working on.” He teased.

I laughed and flipped the light switches. He groaned.

“Warn a brother, will ya?” He grunted.

I laughed and walked over to him. He was standing by the sink, about to turn it on. I stood beside him.

“What? Is my favorite boy now a vampire? Count (His last name)? Is that what I need to call you now?” I teased quietly.

He looked at me, stuck his tongue out at me, and stuck his water jug under the sink. I laughed which had him grinning. I looked at the time. He was looking at the water.

“I’ve got to go…” I said.

He sighed sadly. “No. I don’t want you to, but I know you have to.”

I nodded. “Can I…”

Before I could even finish my question, he curled his arm around me and pulled me into him. He didn’t even care that he was filling his water jug up. He just held me close and I tucked my face against his chest as I wrapped my arms around his waist.

“How was work?” He asked, quietly, holding me closer.

I shrugged. “It was ok. It was my last night for this week.”

“Why’s that?”

I explained why. He and I talked about the reason keeping me from work. He eventually had to let go of me.

The water was overflowing from his water jug and a kid was walking up. He lifted his head and looked at me.

“I’ll see you tomorrow, right?” He asked.
I nodded. “Of course. It’s the last day 'fore the weekend.”

He gave me a sweet smile. “True. Ok. I hope you have a great day. I’ll see you in the morning.”

I smiled. “I’ll see you in the morning, too.”

His smile grew even more.

it gets easier to talk about but it also gets harder to talk about. i have to unfold things carefully, but the map shows better. here’s the first time i got hit by a parent, here’s the first time i got hit by a partner. they’re around the corner from each other, mirror images or hands holding or two sides of a blade. the look on people’s faces always is the same when they find out. like the words hurt them in the pit of their stomach. i feel bad when it does that; i know what it’s like to be suckerpunched. often i comfort people right after: oh, no, it’s okay, i’m okay now, it’s fine, i’m all in one piece, i got out, i’m a resilience child, i learned kindness, i found inner peace, i meditate twice a day, i do yoga and drink kale shakes and eat as if nobody ever made my teeth bleed. some of these are lies, but that is fine too, because it’s better that people don’t know an ugly truth.

sometimes i forget who in the room knows. i laugh about what happened like a punchline (get it) and people stare at me with mouths open like moons. oh my god, did that really happen to you? i don’t know. sometimes it feels like it happened to someone else, out on a distant planet. sometimes it feels like it never happened at all. sometimes it feels like it’s still happening. how can you laugh at that? and is that true? how do i say “because if i don’t laugh it’s serious” because of course it’s true. for proof: raise your hand a fraction too smooth. watch the shadow pass over my face. watch me curl away. watch me change. like a chameleon girl, i shift my shape. someone who doesn’t know laughs. you’re certainly jumpy. the girl at the table who helped me cover the bruise stares at me, watching my chest, trying to figure out if i’m panicking. he’s confused when quiet are you okay questions touch my skin - only those who know, only those who are watching.

and i smile, because it’s easier to talk about but it’s harder to admit it still effects me. memories should be left in the kingdom of dreams. sometimes i feel like i should be done with it already. i stare at a picture of cartoons that says if you don’t know these, you didn’t have a childhood. i know all but two of them. some of them i watched after it happened. i really liked scooby doo. in the end, the mask comes off and the bad guy is revealed and he goes to jail. in real life, i wait for someone to come take his mask off. it just makes him mean. the blue lights of the law never show up on the green of our lawn. i had a pretty good childhood, i think. it made me interesting, at least. i picked blueberries.

i laugh about it a lot. talk about how it’s funny that if you got abused there’s just, like, a second round of partner abuse, sitting out there, waiting for you. that you’re the most likely to pick an abuser from the crowd - or worse, like beauty and the beast, watch yourself become her. see your rotten hands and think of your father. isn’t that funny! that i can take a hit and i’d rather take a lifetime of them than be the one doing the giving just once. i talk about how you walk in the eclipse of it. that it confuses you when the sun comes out. that when you find someone who won’t hurt you, you still walk on eggshells, waiting for them to hurt you. i say it through a smile, because if you bend yourself the right way, your life looks more like comedy-drama than just plain tragedy. i watch fantastic beasts and where to find them and when the abused child turns out to be beyond saving, i hear myself laugh in a bark. or it was a sob. i can’t tell. it doesn’t matter. in my world, children like me learned about magic early, and how our own actions can turn a man from a gentle person into a savage beast. 

okay, i say, smiling, maybe if you put it that way, yeah, i was abused and it wasn’t funny. but come on. think of the puns! you could say my life was really a hit! now don’t be upset. it’s funny. it’s funny. it’s funny.

no, but you don’t understand! 

they are portraying bipolar as “sometimes they do reckless but cool stuff” which is…. exactly the right way to teach teenagers about it? bc they’re fucking teenagers after all and wikipedia makes bipolar sound like a death sentence??? 

and I know Magnus downplayed bipolar a little bit, but that’s exactly what we needed considering how much it was dramaticised in the last two episodes? 

and I can’t believe the people who wrote it actually are real and got that they have to “make light” or a thing to balance the drama before. bc that’s exactly what tv shows never do. but skam did.

Simon Cowell sells off part of Syco entertainment empire for £86m
The music mogul, 57, has signed a new deal giving Sony a share in Syco, which owns the rights to the hugely lucrative X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent brands.

Simon Cowell has sold a stake in his entertainment empire for a staggering £86 million in a deal that means a windfall for his friend Sir Philip Green, it can be revealed.

The music mogul, 57, has signed a new deal giving Sony a share in Syco, which owns the rights to the hugely lucrative X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent brands, as well as a number of successful recording artists.

Sony paid £52.4m in cash in 2015 and will pay a further £33.4 by 2021, newly released accounts show.

It is understood Cowell has received an incredible £45 million from the initial payment. His friend and business associate, the shamed retail tycoon Sir Philip Green, has also received a cut as he was a 10 per shareholder in Syco Holdings, the firm set up to receive the investments.

Other documents show the two men also received lucrative dividend payments from Syco Holdings: Cowell, 57, was paid £1.5m while Sir Philip – under fire for his role in the collapse of BHS - received £68,049.

Cowell – who has launched the careers of some of the world’s most successful pop stars – is already worth an estimated £340 million, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.

But the deal means he now only has a 20 per cent stake in the entertainment firm he set up in 2002.

someone asked for cute, sappy, romantic solangelo 

the two hate fighting but when they fight they fight like silent treatment and everything for a long time. Its weird for everyone at camp. 

but when they apologize, I imagine Will is more of the romantic words while Nico isn’t really comfortable/is awkward with that kinda stuff so he’s more of a “i’ll show you with action” type guy.

I’m sorry… but I will never understand how Zutara is deemed unhealthy, dark, and abusive. I refuse to believe that relationship would’ve been anything other than wholly understanding and loving - and I’ll show you why… with pictures.

At the end of season two and the beginning of season three, we see Zuko struggling with his view of right and wrong. He’s betrayed his uncle, he’s going home, he’s struggling with a whirlwind of emotion and when given the opportunity to open up, by a girl who’s known him his entire life, he readily takes it.

Mai: Aren’t you cold? 
Zuko: I’ve got a lot of my mind. It’s been so long… over three years since I was home. I wonder what’s changed. I wonder how I’ve changed. 

In any functioning, healthy relationship, you would expect this flood of feelings and thoughts to met with sympathy or input or at the very least… a hand on the shoulder and a comforting hug. Instead, Zuko is basically told to shut up, to put up, to push the feelings away because they aren’t important enough to be bothered with. 

Now, you might come at me and say well, Mai really didn’t ask. She just wanted to know if he was cold and that’s fine. I give you this: 

Under Ba Sing Se, Zuko interacts with Katara in a calm environment. This is the first time they are together and not fighting and they have a chance to talk. Katara, obviously, takes the opportunity to rant and rage about how terrible Zuko is and he quietly sits there and takes it. He only protests, peacefully stating that she knows nothing about him, when she’s finished her wild stream of thoughts, to which Katara responds as such: 

Katara: I don’t? How dare you! You have no idea what this war has put me through. Me personally! The Fire Nation took my mother away from me.  
Zuko, sympathetically: I’m sorry. That’s something we have in common.

Now, Zuko could’ve simply said I’m sorry. He could’ve stopped there. But he slips and lets a bit of information about his past hang in the air. In turn, this angry, hurt waterbender - who is raw and emotional after opening up to the enemy - could’ve easily told him to shut up. She would have every right to. He’s hurt her. He’s scared her and chased her all over the world. 

But she doesn’t. She’s known him for five minutes, but she quickly turns around and let’s Zuko open up about his life, his scar, the things that bother him. And then she offers to fix one of the things that weighs him down!!!

And these are quiet, peaceful moments between these pairs. There’s no fighting or drama. If you really want to see how these relationships function, let’s look at periods when both parties are upset with the other. 

For example, let’s assess two intense interactions between Mai and Zuko in the Boiling Rock and then, Katara and Zuko in the Southern Raiders.  

In the Boiling Rock, Mai is angry with Zuko for leaving the Fire Nation, essentially dumping her in the process, and only explaining his motivations and plans through a letter. Now, I get why she says she deserved a face-to-face conversation, but why does she think she deserves one? She shut him down when he last expressed his conflicting decisions, so why does she think he would even feel comfortable explaining his choice to commit treason? 

And look at his body language - they’re together again and there is a chance for her to let him express himself in the way she wants, but she’s belittled him. He’s made to feel small and worthless by someone he thought he could trust (hmmm sound familiar *cough* Ozai *cough*). Then that’s it. She decides whatever he’s said is enough and she’s through and she throws the letter at him, promptly storming out.

Then we have the Southern Raiders… Katara feeling the bitter sting of Zuko’s betrayal in Ba Sing Se is given a chance to get an explanation from him. 

First of all, Zuko seeks her out. It’s obvious she’s pissed, but they are facing each other, having an eye-level conversation, and Zuko’s expression holds remorse and an earnest drive to fix the problem. Even in the intense, heated moment, Katara shows him a certain amount of respect. She takes him head on. She doesn’t belittle or negate him. She gives valid reasons why she’s upset and he listens and tries to fix it.

In a way, he does fix it - the best he can. Katara is heartbroken (much more than Mai is) and she let’s him take her on this journey with an unknown ending and trusts him with her decision - whatever it is. He doesn’t pressure her, he doesn’t push his thoughts or feelings on her. He let’s her be… until Katara decides she’s through and she forgives him. SHE FORGIVES HIM. She forgives the face of the enemy, the son of the man that terrorized her home, the countryman of the person who killed her mother. She forgives him and it’s like this fucking weight lifts off both of them. 

Sure… you can come at me and say Oh, well Mai saved Zuko at the Boiling Rock… Okay fine, I’ll give you that.  It didn’t change anything between them. She came right back at the end of the series and threatened him again. Is she still so incapable of understanding his motivations? Can she not see what his decision brought about? Look around you, Mai! Zuko sacrificed everything and, in turn, saved the world. He wasn’t purposefully being hurtful and vindictive. He wasn’t trying to disappoint you. He was trying to bring about a better future and he fucking succeeded. 

And I just want to post that image side-by-side with the image of Katara kneeling over him post-lightning scene. Katara watches Zuko - the future Fire Lord, the world’s last chance for a decent ruler in the Fire Nation - throw his life by the way side in favor of hers. He literally tossed aside everything they’d worked for and hoped for - he almost gave it all up to save her life.

Mai - who’s relationship was sacrificed for the greater good - threatens Zuko. Katara - who’s last year has been spent training and building up to this final battle - doesn’t. She understands him. She gets him. She’s grateful for him.

From their very first, real interaction, Katara gets Zuko. She takes the time to learn about him and he takes the time to learn about her. It’s healthy. It’s conducive. And even if you don’t think it’s romantic, it’s certainly some next level friend shit. 

If anything, it’s the first relationship shown here that’s unhealthy. 

Eight years

A/N- Hey! So I’m finally finished all my exams, thank baby Jesus!! Anyway, I’ve been playing around with this for a while. And I’m excited to show this to you all. There will definitely be a part two for this. 

Hope y’all enjoy! 

Part 2 ~ Part 3 ~

You got up and did your daily routine, have a shower, eat breakfast and go to work. You loved your job. You worked really heard and it payed off, you were now the CEO’S right hand man in Kim’s industries. Seokjin your boss and close friend, was taking a step back. He was doing so in order to spend more time with his growing family. You were said cause he was a really good friend of yours, and the thought of working with someone who wasn’t him scared you. What if the new CEO didn’t like you? What if you didn’t like him? So many questions and it wasn’t even nine o’clock in the morning. 

You got in to the lift and pressed the number of the floor you worked on. There was a soft melody playing in the back ground, the doors began to close. Suddenly someone stuck there arm in between the closing doors, stopping them from closing and re-opening them. It was a man. He was a masterpiece, he looked like he just walked out of a Calvin Klein ad. He was wearing a black tailored suit, which was obvious because it fit him like a glove.His hair was jet black, swept to the side to show off his fore head. He reminded you of someone, you just couldn’t pin point it. He stopped and stared at you for a moment. You moved a side to let him in. He walked past you and leaned up against the railing. You could fell him staring at you. You felt hot under his gaze. You felt arms snake around your waist. His arms. The beautiful man holding close against his hard chest. You could stay like that forever, but who was he and why did he want to cuddle in the lift?

“E-excuse me, Sir. But I think this is really inappropriate, could you please let me go.” You were a little shaky, you didn’t know who he was. But you could stay in his arms like that forever. Was he going to offer you sex? Like you’d consider it, he was really good looking and you’d say he’d be like a god between the sheets. Y’know what sayin. He chuckled, it was like music in your ears. 

“Really, Y/N/N (Your nick name)? You don’t remember me? He rested his chin on your shoulder, he was pouting. You’d know that pout anywhere. 

“Jeon Jungkook, you’ve turned into such a man.” You turn around his arms, wrapping yours around his neck and giving him a tight squeeze. 

“Handsome, I know right?” He smirked down at you. 

“I think fucking hot. OH MY GOD! Did I just say that out loud.” You try to pull back from him, to embarrassed. But he just pulled you tighter against him, his hands trailing lower down your back. He lowered his face down to your ear, his breath tickling your neck. 

“I think your fucking hot, too.” He whispered in your ear. 

*Flash back* - 

You met Jungkook when you were eight. You became friends pretty fast, never staying a part for too long. It was when Jungkook got his girlfriend that you realised you had feelings for him. As the years went by you understood that Jungkook would never look at you in that way. But why did he have to be so big on skin ship. He may look all innocent and shy, but no, not at all. He was a clingy motherfucker. He was big into cuddling, holding hands, a lot of times his hands would slip onto your ass and he would feel it up. Not that you minded, but you never really thought anything of it, because he was also always touching Jimins ass too. But it’s glories so who wouldn’t. 

The last time you saw Jungkook was at the end of year party, at graduation. He told you he was going to get both of you drinks and to stay right there. When it was hour later and he still wasn’t back, you went to look for him. He was basically fucking the girl that you hated most in the world, she called you nasty names and told you that you would never be good enough for the likes of jungkook. What a bitch. She was the definition of bitch. But your 17 year old little heart broke at the sight, and you ran away. The next day Jungkook texted you, but you didn’t reply. He called, you didn’t answer. He saw you walking down the street home, but you walked faster and pretended not to hear him. Jungkook was a great friend, but you could no longer hold it in. You had to let him go, even if that meant your friendship was ruined. It had to stop. 

*End of flash back*-  

“So how have you been?” He asked. You were relived he wasn’t bringing up the past. 

“I’m good, you?” He smirked, leaning down to your ear again. Does he know what hes doing to you right now? 

“I’m great, now that I’ve seen you.” He whispers. Your breathing hitched in your throat. He smirked…. little cunt. The lift opens, you pull apart from him. 

“It was good seeing you, Kook!” The old nickname rolling off your tongue with ease. He smiled bright, you missed it. 

“Oh, I think you’ll be seeing a lot more of me.” He leans back against the railing, smirking. The doors slowly close. 


You get to your office and sit back in your chair with a sigh of relief. Why did he have to be so good looking. Your heart was pounding and that was eight years ago that you were in love with him. You can’t still have those feelings, right? Right. 

A knock came to your door, and in pops Seokjins old assistant. 

“Miss Y/N, the new CEO is here. There will be a meeting in five minutes up stairs, in the conference room.” She informs you. 

“Okay, thank you.” You sigh taking off your coat and making your way to the board room. You take your seat next to your friend Namjoon. You chat to him till the meeting starts. You were anxious to see whom the new CEO will be. The man you’ll be spending a lot of time with. 

“All right everyone, settle down.” The room comes to silence, the door opens. Your looking at your schedule for today. Someone clears there throat. You look up. 

“Good morning, I’m Jeon Jungkook, the new CEO of Kim industries.” Your gobsmacked. No fucking way. This can’t be happening! He can’t be the new CEO. The meeting starts and everyone is in awe with Jungkook. Where as you are counting down the seconds till you can leave. And you thought work was a great place to be…. 


When the meeting finally ends, you  practically run back to your office. You want to try. You lay your head on your desk. You heard a faint knock at your door. “Come in.” You shout, not lifting your head from the table.

“Wow, your office has a great view!” You shut your eyes tight hearing his voice. He was no where for eight years, when you longed for him. And now he’s everywhere. You straighten yourself up. 

“Is there something I can help you with, Mr Jeon?” His smile fades at your words. 

“Y/N, you don’t have be so formal with me. We used to be so close.” He smiles taking a seat in front of you. 

“That’s true, but I’d rather if we kept this a professional relationship.” You give him a light smile. 

“And we will. But before that, I want you to answer a few questions for me.” Your heart starts to pound. Why is this happening to you? Why did the world hate you? 

“Okay.. go ahead.” You play with your fingers, a nervous habit. Jungkook smirks at it. 

“Why did you stop talking to me eight years ago?” You sigh. 

“Do you want the truth or the easy white lie?” 

“The truth would be preferred.” You take a deep breath. 

“Okay, well.. I was in love with you.” You laugh. “I am, I saw you making out with that fucking cunt that I hated, and it broke my heart. I didn’t want to put myself through pretending that I was okay with it, when I obviously wasn’t. So when you called and text I ignored them, and eventually you stopped. I never wanted you to know, so I stopped talking to you.” You sigh, it was nice getting that out after all those years. 

“Did the boys know?” You finally meet his gaze. 

“Just Yoongi and Jimin.” 

“Why didn’t you tell me? Things could of been different.” He states. 

“I told you I didn’t want you to know. I was afraid it would ruin our friendship, with my one sided love.” You giggle. “It did anyway.” You laugh again, not really knowing why. 

“Y/N, things would have been, could be different, because I-” Jungkook sentence gets cut short as your assistant comes in. 

“Miss Y/N, Mr Lee is here.” You sigh. 

“Already?” You get up smoothing out your skirt. “I’m sorry, Mr Jeon. But I have work to do.” You grab Mr Lee’s file and leave Jungkook in your office. 

“I love you, too.” Jungkook sighs.

Having seen the first two episodes of The Crown I can say that this is quality period piece shit right here, and you should all watch it.

Featuring:

  • the King of England saying “cunt” within the first ten minutes
  • Philip telling a tribal king that he likes his hat only for Elizabeth to hiss “That’s a CROWN darling” beginning the lifelong Windsor issue of “Don’t Let Philip Talk To POC Just… Don’t”
  • King George VI being like “she is the job Philip loving her protecting her that’s the job” and Philip nodding vigorously because holy shit his father  in law is literally holding a shotgun
  • (I died)
  • ELEPHANT ATTACKS
  • Margaret being so scandalous you can’t handle it~
  • like???? lots of unexpected medical stuff???? so watch out
  • The quiet but insistent screams of American Netflix viewers going “I DON’T UNDERSTAAAAND” and “DON’T KISS HER FEET THAT’S GROSS” and “WHYYYYYYYY DO YOU HAVE THESE PEOPLE?”

So I was chatting with @renach4n​​ and unearthed something very fascinating about Yuuri and Victor’s dynamic. This one line here applies to absolutely everything they have ever said to each other. EVERYTHING. And even more so than you might think. Let’s take a look.

Pre-post edit: RIP me, I got that won’t-allow-you-to-save tumblr bug right when I was about to click post and lost a massive chunk of this when I attempted to back it up, so I apologize if some sections (namely the airport and proposal scenes) seem lacklustre. Their re-write was mostly fuelled on salty tears. Hopefully I still got my point across well enough!

  • Minority Transformers Fan Voice (me): I identify heavily with the Decepticons due to their persecution and demonization both in text and out
  • Minority Transformers Fan Voice: And the fact that the Decepticons in at least two verses started out as rebels trying to right the wrongs of the Autobots who were literally trying to keep an oppressive system in place to benefit them at the cost of thousands of lives and when that system was threatened they sought to crush anything that could dare harm it, including other Autobots.
  • Minority Transformers Fan Voice: And the writers of both verses clearly got cold feet about showing that war is morally grey by doing a total 180 and making the Decepticons go from people who want to be treated as equals who only went to war after the "right and civil" thing didn't work and created the grindcore among other things that would cement in the viewer/reader mind that they are irredeemable
  • Minority Transformers Fan Voice: that is unless they give up the Decepticon brand and either become unaligned or preferably an Autobot, the very thing that was oppressing them to begin with
  • Minority Transformers Fan Voice: and even when they do that because they defected they aren't treated as "Real Autobots" by hardly anyone in universe or out.
  • Minority Transformers Fan Voice: The Decepticons deserve better treatment from both writers and fan base and be allowed to either be the heroes without a Shattered Glass type publishing/movie/series and actually be written with intent to make them sympathetic characters.
  • Minority Transformers Fan Voice: The abuse of current or former Decepticons by writers show that they are not that. They are not meant to be sympathetic characters and ARE meant to suffer at every turn and their pain at best is nothing and at worst the best joke in the Universe
  • Assholes: Wow. The edge. Make sure you don't cut yourself on that edge holy shit. So edgey

FOX AND MARVEL STUDIOS HAVE MADE DEALS TO SWAP CHARACTERS BEFORE!

Marvel and FOX are said to have a tricky relationship, which is what is preventing all Marvel characters from appearing in the same universe, but it seems the two studios are willing to work together when it is mutually beneficial. It has come to light that FOX made so many changes to Negasonic Teenage Warhead for ‘Deadpool’ that they needed approval from Marvel. Marvel gave them that approval, but it came at a price. In exchange FOX gave Marvel permission to use Ego the Living Planet, a character they got with the Fantastic Four rights, in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2′. This follows another deal for two X-Men TV shows, and a whole slew of new X-Men comics and merchandise. Hopefully this is a sign of a better relationship between the two studios in the future!

Like many people, I started listening to WTNV in the summer of 2013. That was when the show suddenly exploded from a niche podcast no one had heard of to a full-blown fandom. And the reason it did so was because of the release of “One Year Later”, in which Carlos and Cecil get together, followed quickly by “First Date”. In that sense, then, today feels like the culmination of this fandom as a whole. My dash is exploding with joy right now, the love that these two fictional characters share spilling over into the real world and filling all of our hearts. I feel so connected to this show and everyone else listening to it, just like I did when it was brand new to me. We were there at that first kiss, and we got to see them grow and change in more-or-less real time, as we grew and changed alongside them. 

Once, back in the heyday, I used to think that Cecil and Carlos’ wedding would be the series finale. J&J do like to write a happy ending, and what could be happier than our boys staying together forever? But here’s the thing: A wedding isn’t an ending, it’s a beginning. It’s the ribbon-cutting ceremony on a new life, it’s a promise that gets fulfilled with every experience that follows. So here’s a toast: to happy beginnings, to J&J for bringing so much light into my life, to all of you fans for being here with me, too 100 episodes and 100 more. 

Struggling Through to The End

Is this The End for Sherlock? It certainly feels like it. That ending, while lovely in so many ways, felt a little tacked on and there were so many circles that they attempted to close that I would be surprised if this was *not* the last episode ever.

Was it a great episode?

No.

Did I expect a great episode?

No.

I’m afraid this show broke my storyteller heart back in The Empty Hearse. The shift in tone from TRF to TEH, the utterly disappointing reunion of John and Sherlock, the ridiculous non-explanation we got for how Sherlock survived the fall, the “fan service” that came a little too close to mocking–all that made me feel betrayed and unsure. “Betrayed” sounds like overstating, and s1 and s2 were not 100% absolute perfection, of course, but truly, I no longer trusted the writers to do right by the characterization and story they had set up in the first two series.

I tried to have hope. And TSOT was lovely. So many great things in there, Sherlock learning how to navigate his heart, and, at that point, I was all for Mary.

Then HLV happened.

When Mary shot Sherlock I thought–well, I thought many things, but after I calmed down, I thought, “Oh. So that’s what’s more important then. Things don’t need to make sense. Things just need to get Big Reactions.”

This is not my favorite kind of storytelling. But this continued through s4. Plot over character. Hell, not even plot, just Big Scenes. Some of the Big Scenes were great and I loved them. Some of them didn’t make a lick of sense.

So, since TEH, I feel like I have completely lowered my expectations and just looked for bits to like. This line here. This scene there. Because I had no belief that it would all hold together, that the narrative and characterization would be consistent.

This is a sad little way to approach something I used to love. Like going from whole milk to 2% or something, idk. I kept compromising. “Well, if there’s just one scene that could be interpreted this way” or “if they just don’t kill the baby then that’ll be okay.”

So, in TFP, when John and Sherlock jumped out from a second-story window and there was no mention of injuries sustained, I rolled with it.

When they retconned the entire series from the beginning by having Moriarty meet Euros five years ago, I rolled with it.

When they threw a rope down to a man *chained* to the bottom of a well, I rolled with it.

When they chose to have Eurus force these three to go through all her complicated tests rather than just have her “hypnotize” or “reprogram” John, to whom she had TONS of access, I rolled with it.

When they tacked on the cheesy Mary narration over the ending montage, I rolled with it.

When they…. Well. I could go on and on. But the reason I rolled with it all? Because my expectations were so low. I had been trained to overlook a lot by this point, to sift through a lot of dirt to find a tiny gem or two.

And they did actually do a few things I truly enjoyed in TFP.

John and Sherlock working as a team again–the trust, the banter, the love, the adventure. I had missed that terribly. Mycroft, so much Mycroft insight and development. The scenes with Moriarty (but not the reaction gif bits) just because I did miss him, damn it. And Sherlock’s great big heart being as much an asset as his great big brain.

And one more very important thing, a thing that makes it possible for me to keep writing in this particular Sherlock Holmes universe–

They left the door open. Lots of doors, actually. So we can keep on filling in the gaps, fixing the parts that need fixing, and making our own meaning.

Even without shooting a pilot, Fox picked up [her] show [‘Wild Blue’] for a full season, then canceled it a week later — on Christmas Eve. “We were all on cloud nine, and the rug was pulled out from under our feet. Right after that, I had a falling-out with one of my very best friends, and then a few days later, my boyfriend at the time broke up with me. I’m like, You’ve got to be kidding me! My show, my friend, my boyfriend?! OK. Well, God’s clearly making room for something. Three weeks later, I booked Jane, and the past two years have been the most insane experience of my life.” — Gina Rodriguez for Yahoo Style
