I'm so scared for tonight I'm not even completely caught up yet what will even happen they're just gonna have had a year of being happy and then chaos again??? I don't know how to feel my tummy is tumultuous ;A;

though I mean, they’ve had this agreement to hunt down a god hanging over their head for a year too so like. the other shoe had to drop eventually. but whatever happens it will be hilarious and heartwrenching and probably at least 85% a Terrible Plan because Vox Machina will forever be Vox Machina I don’t think anything’s gonna change that

Why Embracing Emotional Distress is the Best Medicine Sometimes

Much of our mental suffering is caused by our overwhelming attempt to avoid it. We think experiencing any sort of anxiety is a threat to our existing, but psychology studies have proven that one learns from struggle. One becomes a better human being through heartache. Let us explain with the science behind this theory..

My dear, you keep conveniently forgetting the single most important obstacle to the rise of a fascist dictator: a stable, peaceful, prosperous democracy. You can have every element listed in those fearmongering checkoff lists about fascism, but with that ginormous obstacle in play, fascism will never come to these shores. Not only that, our 2nd Amd rights and our professional military will ensure that our people will never be subjugated by force, whether by foreign threats or from within.

Ok, you now sound like an NRA nut…and that’s being nice about it. “Yeah! Civil war! Guns. Rah rah! American is infallible and untouchable! Pew Pew Pew!”. Just for the record, you know who owns the vast majority of guns in this country? His insane supporters. That’s going to work out great for anyone going against them.

Anyway, Second Amendment Armed Resistance lunacy aside, a “stable, peaceful, prosperous democracy?” you say. Ok. Let’s break down that fallacy with a few facts. 

  1. First and foremost, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit, as of 2017 the USA is no longer a “full democracy”, but instead considered a “flawed democracy”. Other countries on that same category? The Philippines, South Korea, and Greece for example. Great company we’re keeping.  
  2. Reuters just instructed it’s staff to cover the US/Trump the way they cover any other authoritarian regime. And yes, they used the word “authoritarian”. That means one of the largest and most respected international news agencies just put the US in the same context as Turkey, the Philippines, Egypt, Iraq, Yemen, Thailand, China, Zimbabwe, and Russia.
  3. Donald Trump filed with the FEC for 2020 reelection on January 20th, 2017. This is major for several reasons. First and foremost, it is NOT NORMAL. Obama filed for 2012 reelection in April 2011. Incumbent declaring before midterms is unheard of. Several MAJOR implications. If officially a candidate, can use candidate status to curry favor with PACs, businesses, other organizations. Because he’s acting as Trump the candidate, not Trump the president. Different rules apply. Even more importantly - completely changes how non profits can handle him. 501c3’s cannot “campaign” or risk losing nonprofit status. It means they can’t speak negatively about him. Imagine @PPact having to convey risk to #PlannedParenthood w/ limits on how to address. This throws nonprofits’ strategy for next few years into chaos. They must figure out how to work against Trump w/o “campaigning.“ And further muddies the already swampy ethical waters of financial gain, conflicts of interest, and business transactions. Filed 5PM #InaugurationDay2017. 5 HOURS after swearing in. This is what #TheResistance is up against. Diabolical maneuvering to skirt all conventional forms of #resistance. Norms don’t matter; it’s all about finding new ways to silence us. Again, THIS IS NOT NORMAL. Stay vigilant, stay ready to fight. We’re going to have to defy our own norms to resist. This is IRS regulation re. 501c3s. They’re smart, creative & used to this, but adds add'l hurdles/potential legal battles they don’t need. To re-clarify: likely motivation is raising $$ and using PACs for propaganda. Nonprofits know what they’re doing. But consider 1/28 events. W/ unprecedented legal/Constitutional challenges & Bannon at helm, don’t rule out attacks on previously held norms re. how non-profs operate. Addendum to thread: after getting more feedback, 501©3 issues are a discussion best had outside of the context of the candidacy filing.”
  4. This has actually come out of Bannon’s mouth: ““I’m a Leninist. Lenin wanted to destroy the state and that’s my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.Bannon was employing Lenin’s strategy for Tea Party populist goals. He included in that group the Republican and Democratic Parties, as well as the traditional conservative press.”
  5. Military convoys in Kentucky are driving around the streets flying Trump flags on their tanks. 
  6. Cheeto Hitler threatened to send US troops to Mexico to stop “bad hombres down there,” in phone call with Peña Nieto that was supposed to patch things up after The Wall debacle. Let that sink in: The POTUS told the president of Mexico he would invade Mexico. Bannon has also said that he has “no doubt” the US will be at war with China within the next few years. This isn’t funny anymore. 
  7. Today Democrats decided to boycott the vote on Price and Mnuchin. Rules say you can’t vote on nominees without at least one person from each party present so Democrats just didn’t show up. The Senate committee went ahead and approved Trump Treasury and Health nominees without Democrats present after GOP unilaterally changed panel’s rules. I’m going to quote this:The GOP just broke major committee’s rules to push through the nominations of Price/Mnuchin. This is an unprecedented break in Senate decorum. This means the Senate GOP are turning the Senate committee’s procedures into House committee’s procedures. This is dangerous because the Senate is the only institution where the minority party has the institutional rules to stop the majority & make itself heard. Madison warned us greatly about the tyranny of the majority. That’s why our democratic system is by design an anti-majoritarian system. That anti-majoritarianism is embedded in the Senate & its rule. This is a clear signal coming from Senate GOP that they are willing to kill the filibuster. Institutionally, American democracy is in a dangerous path where majority means unconstrained & unlimited exercise of power.”
  8. Jeff Sessions, who thinks church/state separation is an “extraconstitutional doctrine” even when the prohibition against the government respecting the establishment of religion is literally the first thing in the Bill of Rights, has been approved as Attorney General by the Senate Committee. This is the same man who praised a law that singled out Jews and Asians, and made it harder for them to immigrate to the US.
  9. Republican Congressional staffers, without telling their bosses, are working secretly with Trump aides. This is straight up insane. Let me repeat: the Legislative branch secretly working with the executive branch is a serious violation of separation of powers. I mean, you have the House Judiciary staff working with the WH on Executive Orders without telling their leaders or bosses because they signed NDAs and you’re seriously trying to tell me the system is working? “A Congress that allows its staff to be secretly, contractually obligated to the White House is no longer a Congress.”
  10. Wildly respected political historians are sounding the alarms and analyzing the potential outcome of of Bannon & Co creating “shock events”. Read the whole thing. 
  11. The State Department has been purged and now the WH is telling anyone with a different opinion to just up and quit. Even if that doesn’t happen you now have three people with no political experience and some really fucked up worldviews leading it: Tillerson, Bannon, and Miller. Is that not concerning?
  12. Tiny Hands decided that he is going to freeze out an entire news outlet because he deems it “fake news”. 
  13. Canadian politicians are calling Trump a fascist in Parliament. 
  14. His sons, who supposedly handle the businesses he promised to divest from but hasn’t, are directly involved in government even after he promised they wouldn’t be. This is against the law yet where were they last night? Front row at the SCOTUS pick announcement.
  15. Trump has, is, and will continue to receive payments from foreign governments. That is a violation of the emoluments clause on the constitution. No one on the GOP seems too concerned about it. 
  16. There are Customs and Border Patrol agents openly and brazenly defying court orders that have yet to be held accountable by the criminal justice system.
  17. “Bannon is making sure there is no paper trail” of National Security Council debates & decision.
  18. Yates is the first AG to be fired since Elliot Richardson was fired by Nixon in 1973. This isn’t something that happens every day. That should tell you everything you need to know, but since you clearly don’t want to listen to reason then maybe listen to what the former DOJ spokesman Matthew Miller has to say about this mess“This kind of assault on DOJ’s independence has not happened since the Saturday night massacre. The president thinks he is above the law. In our democracy, the president is not supposed to dictate to the AG how to interpret the law. This is a major breakdown in the rule of law. A president who fires an AG over this will think he can fire an AG over, say, a probe into whether his campaign coordinated w/ Russia. Also, the next U.S. atty in line of succession was not Boente, but Zach Fardon. Did Trump go forum shopping for one who would follow orders? No matter what you think about the EO, the independence of DOJ is a principle that everything else in our democracy depends on. Sessions simply can’t be confirmed in this environment. At the minimum, he needs a whole new hearing to answer q’s about DOJ independence. But in reality, we now need an AG who is entirely independent from Trump, not one who was a member of his campaign.”
  19. The DNC has straight up called Trump “tyrannical”.
  20. Trump wants to make counter-extremism program focus solely on Islamic extremism. Basically he wants the government to stop going after Neo-Nazis or any other domestic hate group. 
  21. Anti-protester propaganda linked with blatant anti-semitism has gone mainstream.
  22. This statement by brilliant political journalist Sarah Kendzior who has spent her life covering authoritarian regimes and has basically predicted the Trump administration down to every detail for months now: “You should not be surprised at pace of admin’s destruction. You should be thinking many steps ahead, which means thinking fast, acting now. Speed of changes happening for two reasons: temperament and ideology. Trump spent 40 years making fast decisions, having others bail him out. Trump has always surrounded himself with actors to mitigate his damage quickly and often illegally, from Cohn to mafia to, now, Bannon. Difference with Bannon is that speed itself is an ideology. He is a sociopathic accelerationist who has said he will destroy US + will try. Those in power need to act quickly to preserve what institutions can check them before those institutions are destroyed, esp judiciary […] You will need to predict moves far in advance – and act with far more moral conviction and far less blind faith – to preserve this nation.”
  23. American citizens are being detained at airports and being asked if they love their country. People are being asked for the social media handles by CBP at airports and being checked to see if they post anything Anti-Trump. Canadians were turned away at the border the day of the Women’s March because they told CBP they were coming to protest Trump. CBP denied them entry and told them they would need visas to come back. 
  24. Trump is signing shit without even consulting the departments the EOs affect: “As President Trump signed a sweeping executive order on Friday, shutting the borders to refugees and others from seven largely Muslim countries, the secretary of homeland security was on a White House conference call getting his first full briefing on the global shift in policy.Gen. John F. Kelly, the secretary of homeland security, had dialed in from a Coast Guard plane as he headed back to Washington from Miami. Along with other top officials, he needed guidance from the White House, which had not asked his department for a legal review of the order.Halfway into the briefing, someone on the call looked up at a television in his office. “The president is signing the executive order that we’re discussing,” the official said, stunned.”

I’ve only mostly covered the last three days worth of news and I already hit two dozen points. I think I’m going to stop there but trust me I got a treasure trove more where that came from. I read policy news all day, every day. I am very well educated on what’s happening and I’m telling you, you’re dead wrong.

long ago, the four countries lived together in melody. then, everything changed when the burning man attacked

only the aviator, master of all four thingies, could stop them. but when the world needed him most, he went bye-bye

a hundred and one years passed and my brother and i discovered the new aviator, a windbreaker named Oblong. and although his windbreaking skills are great, he has a lot to learn before he’s ready to save anyone…

John and Paul related to each other as peers. Theirs was not a big brother/little brother relationship (as seemed to exist between John and George), despite the fact that Lennon was a year and a half older than McCartney.

They clearly had  the closest friendship within the Beatles, at least at first, but they couldn’t have been two more different people.

Paul was meticulous and organized: he always carried a notebook around with him, in which he methodically wrote down lyrics and chord changes in his neat handwriting. In contrast, John seemed to live in chaos: he was constantly searching for scraps of paper that he’d hurriedly scribbled ideas on. Paul was a natural communicator; John couldn’t articulate his ideas well. Paul was the diplomatic; John was the agitator. Paul was soft-spoken and almost unfailingly polite; John could be a right loudmouth and quite rude. Paul was willing to put in long hours to get a part right; John was impatient, always ready to move on to the next thing. Paul usually knew exactly what he wanted and would often take offense at criticism; John was much more thick-skinned and was open to hearing what others had to say. In fact, unless he felt especially strongly about something, he was usually amenable to change.

There were so many differences between them, I often wondered what it was that made them such great friends, unless it was simply that opposites attract.
—  Geoff Emerick, “Here, There and Everywhere, My Life Recording The Music of The Beatles”

hey marvel as someone who used to read your comics religiously and stopped in the last year or so, it’s not because of the diversity

it’s because you prioritize Big Game Changing Events over good stories and character development and it got exhausting to read since it bled into every single book

not everything needs to be some high stakes end of the world bullshit, it’s okay to just let the characters breathe and go on their own adventures for a while

when people are confused and frustrated with your storytelling, they stop reading

it has nothing to do with adding diverse characters to the comics. trust me, we want to enjoy them but it’s hard when they’re immediately thrust into some apocalyptic chaos and they don’t get any development or stories to make us want to keep reading

fans have been telling you this for years and you keep ignoring us and it’s just gotten worse and worse

Rules of Engagement (shiro x reader)

Rules of Engagement

Shiro x Reader

Imagine: Being the communications specialist with Shiro and Matt at the garrison.

Warning: Just a little making out ;)

AN: Hey guys! I hope you all like this one, let me know what you liked, or if you have any requests!

~~~

His lips felt like fire on her skin. There was no pulling away at this point, not that it even crossed her mind. The feeling of his body pressed against hers, his thigh positioned between her legs, how his fingers gripped her hips, all of it made it impossible to think of anything else, but how good it felt. This was definitely against protocol, the small portion of her brain that has retained its sanity thought in the back of her head. It all felt like a deram. And if it was she never wanted to wake up.

She and Shiro were on the same flight team at the garrison. He was the pilot, and she, his communications specialist. They were also accompanied by an engineer by the name of Matt Holt, she swore he was some kind of genius, it was the only explanation for how smart he was. They had all been friends, but with the hours spent in the flight simulator, the late night study sessions, the constant contact between them, they became much more than that. The connection between her and Shiro was unshakable, you would never see one without the other, inseparable. It wasn’t until their third year at the garrison, did they notice a change in their dynamic. They weren’t the only ones to notice this change, Matt knew something was going on between them, even if they didn’t know exactly what.

For weeks, it was nothing but chaos. Longing stares from across the room, lingering touches, constant blushing, all at the expense of Matt’s sanity. There was a time when the two of you could barely be in the same room, in fear that in your clumsy state, someone could get hurt. Matt didn’t mind at first, that is until your team failed the flight simulator, putting a permanent ‘F’ on his record. Shiro had gotten distracted by you, in the middle of the mission, when you cut your hand on a stray screw driver, causing Shiro to panic, and in the end, sent their team crashing to the ground in a blazing fireball. He’d had enough.

He told you both to meet him in room B26, to go over what went wrong, and finish the mission report on the simulation failure. Each of you feeling a different kind of shame in the failure of the basic sim, and each feeling that it was your fault things had gone south.

The next morning when you arrived at the room, you met with Shiro on the way, but neither of you could stand to meet the other’s gaze. Too embarrassed to think it was your lack to self control that had ruined the mission. Keeping your head bowed, you both entered the room, the first thing you noticed was how cold and damp it was, the lights were off making it hard to see exactly where you were. Shiro’s shins came in contact with a mop bucket, sending it skidding across the floor.

“What the- “ he began, his eyes adjusting enough to see the shelves that lined the walls, filled different cleaning supplies. “Is this… a Janitor’s closet?” thinking that they must have walked into the wrong room, Shiro turned to exit, only to have the door slammed in his face. Shocked, he rushed forward testing the doorknob, and finding it locked. Thinking it must have been an accident, he slammed his fist against the metal door trying to get the attention of whoever had closed the door.

“Hey! We are in here! The door is locked, can you open it?” he called, hoping they were still close enough to hear him. There was a moment of silence, before they heard a familiar voice reply.

“I’m not letting you out until you two work this out! I don’t know what is going on with you buys, but whatever ‘it’ is, fix it! I am not going to get another ‘F’ in that stupid simulator, just because you two are acting like lovesick teenagers!” Matt’s voice was filled with a mix of anger and frustration. There was another pause, followed by what Shiro assumed was a sigh. “I’ll be back in an hour.” he said more calmly before walking away, ignoring the protests from his teammates.

They spent the next 10 minutes searching for another way out, only finding 4 metal walls all lined with janitorial equipment, and an air vent, too small for either of them to fit through. Shiro was sure Matt had picked this room specifically for that reason, no way to escape. Giving up on that idea, they resorted to searching for a light switch, their eyes adjusting enough to see outlines in the darkness but not much else. The tension in the room was palpable, neither of them trusting themselves to address the elephant in the room, why they were locked in here in the first place, they both knew what Matt had said was true, but were not willing to address it as the problem it was. Until the pressure got the better of them.

“I’m sorry.” you both blurted out at the same time. Fumbling to recover, you turned to continue, but your foot caught on the bucket Shiro had knocked over earlier, sending you sprawling on the floor.

“(Y/N)! Are you okay?!” Shiro asked rushing over to where he had heard you fall. Unfortunately, instead of helping you, he stepped on your hand. You cried out again, cradling your hand to your chest as you pushed back against the wall, pulling your knees in. Shiro’s heart felt like it was in his throat, how had he managed to mess this up even more?

“Oh God, (Y/N) I’m so sorry!” he stammered his panic rising up. Standing where he was he ran a shaking hand through his hair. He didn’t dare move again, scared that he would accidentally hurt you again, instead he decided to speak, and once he started, he couldn’t stop, everything just poured out of his mouth.

“This is all my fault. I just really like you, and you’re so pretty, and smart, and when you smile it makes my stomach go crazy, and you’re laugh, oh god, your laugh! It’s the best thing I’ve ever heard! It’s just so hard for me to think when you’re around, my brain goes all fuzzy and I can’t focus on anything else. God, I should have known better, i should have tried harder to hide my feelings, or i should have transfered as soon as I realized I loved you, and, and now we are stuck in here, and you’re hurt and-” in the darkness, you made out his outline, and rose to your feet, equal parts shocked and thrilled to hear what he was saying. Reaching out you placed your hand on the side of his face, rendering him silent. You couldn’t see his face, and you prayed he couldn’t see yours, you could feel your cheeks reddening as you drew closer. He could feel you coming closer, your hand gliding over his face, your fingertips tracing the outline of his lips. You felt his warm breath against your fingers, as you moved your hand to the base of his neck, standing on your toes. You hesitated, your lips stopping just shy of his.

Swallowing his nerves, Shiro closed the remaining distance, capturing your lips with his. In that moment it was like a fire was lit between you. His hands were on you in an instant, pulling you closer as his mouth moved against yours. Pressing forward, you stumbled back, your shoulders hitting the metal walls of the room hard. Shiro only paused for a moment before he was on you again, pinning your body to the wall with his own. His fingers gripped your sides, pawing at the material of your uniform. Pressing closer, he fit himself against you, a leg between yours, his hips against yours, like fitting puzzle pieces together. His lips pulled away from yours, only to attach to the exposed skin on your neck. He groaned into the hollow of your neck, as you raked your fingers through his hair, pulling on it slightly.

The heat between you continued to grow, and the once cold room felt like a furnace. So consumed in the moment, you both failed to notice the door to the room slide open. Matt caught site of the two of you, and paused for just a moment, as his mind registered the situation. Shaking his head, he crossed his arms over his chest, before clearing his throat. And just as quickly as it had started, the trance was broken. Shiro tore his body away from yours, his hair was sticking up in odd directions from where you fingers had mused it. While you pushed yourself off the wall, trying to stop your knees from shaking, and straighten your uniform at the same time, the small marks on your neck beginning to form. Both of your lips were swollen, and your faces were red, and in Matt’s opinion, you both looked thoroughly kissed. An amused smile pulled at Matt’s lips as he watched the two of you fumble to compose yourselves. No one spoke for a long moment, until finally, Matt broke the ice.

“Well,” he began, his voice eerily calm. “I can’t say that I didn’t see this coming, cause I did, and for that reason, I planned ahead. Because if ‘this’” he gestured between the two of you quirking an eyebrow. “Is going to happen, there need to be some ground rules.” stepping forward, he reached into his bag and pulled out a large 3 ring binder, shoving it into Shiro’s chest, who caught it quickly, looking down at the cover.

“‘Rules and guidelines of dating a teammate’” he read aloud, lifting his eyes questioningly to Matt.

“Volume 1?” you read over Shiro’s arm. “How many volumes are there?” you asked watching Shiro flip through the pages, each filled with words, and some having charts and pictures… this was obviously something Matt had put time into, and it definitely took longer than the hour they had been in there.

“There are 2 others back in my room, but I haven’t finished editing them.” Matt answered calmly. You nearly choked, and Shiro swallowed thickly, his eyes wide. Indifferent, Matt continued. “Also, there will be a quiz, so I would suggest going on a ‘study date’ instead of making out in a janitor’s closet.” you heaved a sigh, before turning your eyes to Shiro, a smile pulled at you lips, despite the obvious dislike of the situation.

“I’m free tonight.” you said, Shiro’s heart skipped a beat. He would read 50 of Matt’s ridiculous rule books, if it meant he got to see you smile like that again.

Take your bad days with your good

 Requested by @ daisygonzalezmexican :  Hi ☺ Captain Boomerang imagine, after leaving Belle Reve, meets a girl (reader) and after a while he falls in love with her and decides to be a better person for her, she feels the same for him even though he knows who he really is but she does not judge him. Please and thanks ☺😊

 Pairing: Captain Boomerang (George Harkness) X Reader

 Word count: 866


 “Do not move, luv.” A low voice whispers in your hear while pulling you into an alley.

 With your heart pounding against your chest, you try to set free from his hands, but it’s useless. A dozen of police cars passes by, making him hold you tighter.

 “Please, just let me go.” You mutter as the man slowly lets go of you, keeping you close by grabbing your arm.

 “Don’t even try to run. I won’t hurt ya.”

 When you turn around to face him, you gasp. Captain Boomerang is well known in this city and you’ve heard a lot about him in the last few days. He just escaped from Belle Reve. Pushing his chest violently, you struggle to get away from him. Again, it’s useless.

 “Take me to ya place, would you?”

 “What? No!” You take a deep breath, planning to scream, but you feel a cold metal against your throat. “No! Please. I’ll take you there. You can hide for one night and then…”

 “Deal.” He barks, pulling you with him as he leaves the alley, looking around. “Tell me where to go.”


 You sit on your couch, drying your hair and pretending Captain Boomerang isn’t using your shower. He made you close all your windows and lock them. At least he gave you his bloody money to order something to eat. When you hear his footsteps, your heart beat increases. Only God knows what’s going through his head. Boomerang sits by your side, relaxing and focusing on the TV.

 “You’ll be leaving by mor…”

 “Shut up. I’m watching TV.” He gestures to the TV, making you raise your eyebrows.

 “My TV. Now you shut…” You lose your voice when you look at him. The bastard is shirtless, his muscular chest moving as be breathes, making you have dirty thoughts.

 “Ya were saying?” Boomerang smirks at you, his blue eyes locked on yours.

 You jump when someone knocks, Boomerang giving you an angry look that means you better not try anything. Sighing, you take the pizza and close the door softly. You run to the kitchen in order to take the bigger slice. When you’re about to cut it, Boomerang comes running, wrapping his hand around your waist and you can’t help but burst into laugh.

 “Ya’re ticklish, huh? Now I have somethin’ to use against ya.” He keeps tickling you, forcing you to lay down on the floor, his body pressing against yours. “Will ya share our pizza equally, luv?”

 “Yes! Yes! Stop it! Please!” Yelling at him, you can see that he’s smiling too.

 You suddenly think about how his life has been. Boomerang is a villain and everything, but still, years locked up and being chased like a rat would damage anyone. There’s this felling in your heart. Something you’ve never felt. What if you could change his life? Make him feel better, happy, even though all this chaos?

 “That’s fine then.” He stops tickling you but doesn’t move, pinning you to the floor.

 “You have a beautiful smile.” You whisper, noticing how Boomerang’s eyes are kind. “I like it.”

 “I wanna stay for a while.” His low voice sends shivers down your spine a brings a smile to your lips.

“That’s fine by me.”


 You hear someone downstairs and sit up straight. Boomerang isn’t on his place on your bed.

 After a few weeks, when winter finally came, you were thankful to have his warm arms around you at night. It soon became a routine.

 But this is the worse part of it. You run downstairs, almost tripping on the last step.

 “(Y/N)?” He calls your name, his voice making you jump, both hands covering your mouth.

 “Holy shit, Boomy.” Sighing, you hug his waist as he drops all the three backpacks he was holding. “Where did you go this time?”

 “Sorry, luv.” George lifts you from the ground, his tight grip taking your breath away. “I can’t help it.”

 When George finally told you his real name and told you everything about his story, he also promised to slow down on his villain life. But you never asked for that. On these past months, you slowly fell in love with him. With the man and with the villain.

 “I know. I told you I’d take your bad days with you good. I don’t want you to go back to prison.” Cupping his cheek, you peck his lips. “Just be careful. I don’t give a damn if you like stealing. I… I want you to stay free.”

 “Does that means ya don’t hate me anymore?”

 “No.” You sigh when the police cars pass by your street. “I want to be with you. Being a villain or not.”

 “I think we should move then.”

 “I bet we can with all the money you took.”

 “We move so ya can be my woman.” Pulling you close, you feel his erection. “I wanna five children at least.”

 “Only five?” You giggle, taking a look at those backpacks he brought home. “Let’s have sex first. Then we can choose where to go and think about our kid’s names.”

 “Great idea, luv.”

Boy groups and splitting up
  • Exo: Lay convinced half the members to start a new group with him in China after SM didn't give them any lines. Chanyeol now makes money off "chogiwa" memes, and D.O. moved to a cabin in the woods.
  • BTS: Some crazy armies took control of their car and the members have never been seen again.
  • Seventeen: Hoshi broke one of his legs, Scoups went back to Nu'est, and Woozi went on a long self-reflecting retreat. Without their leaders, Seventeen broke into chaos and accidently set the Pledis building on fire.
  • Block B: All the members left shortly after they changed their name to Zico and the Blocks.
  • Got7: After a few years, JYP let them have another US tour. Pool party 2.0 happened and JYP just left them there. Rumor has it Bambam got arrested.

Have “A Sorry Kiss” from the Modern Glasgow Frasers!

Claire stretched under the soft duvet, eyes shut tight against the sun streaming through the curtains.

“Quiet!” Jamie’s theatrical whispers echoed in the hallway. “The whole *point* of surprising yer mam wi’ breakfast is keeping it a surprise! And ye canna be making so much noise because that way she’ll ken we’re here!”

“Ooh!” two-year-old William’s soft voice exclaimed.

“Sshh!” his brother and sisters admonished.

Jamie cleared his throat. “Fergus - will ye open the door, man?”

Claire heard the door creak open, and the patter of eight small Fraser feet scampering toward the bed.

“Wait -” Jamie admonished -

“Supwise, Mama!” Three-year-old Brianna jumped on the bed, shoving against her four-year-old sister Faith.

In the same instant, Claire let out a surprised “oof” and Faith crashed to the floor, knocking Fergus’ tall legs and upsetting the tray of fruit, eggs, and coffee.

Fortunately the crockery - Claire’s inheritance from her parents, which the Frasers only used on special occasions - fell harmlessly on the big bed. But the coffee pot crashed to the ground, sending a scalding hot tide across the rag rug Jenny had given them for their anniversary two years back.

What followed was the typical chaos and mayhem of any morning in the Fraser household - Fergus yanking Faith away from the coffeepot; Jamie throwing William airborne and out of harm’s way so that he crashed, giggling, on the mattress beside Brianna; Claire still muzzy from sleep and trying to decipher exactly what was happening.

It didn’t take long to organize the wee Frasers into clean-up duty, and then send them with Fergus back to their rooms to change into fresh clothes. For they would go out for breakfast today.

And then Jamie crashed on the mattress beside Claire, exhausted.

She snuggled closer, careful of the stray strawberries that rolled out from under the pillow.

“I’m sor-” he began.

But she interrupted him with a smiling, forgiving kiss.

Do you have any anti-scott, Sterek or Steter fics? Thank you <3

I didn’t find a lot of outwardly anti-Scott (even tho some of them are tagged as such) but these range from anti to just “Scott is a bad friend”.  Enjoy!  -Emmy

The Incredible Stiles Stilinski by wereleopard58 

(3,535 I Teen I WIP)    *sterek

Stiles had to leave to train his spark.  He meets the Hale pack and has a connection with not only Talia, but even more so with her gorgeous son Derek.  He never expected to return to Beacon Hills as part of another pack, and to dethrone the True Alpha, who had become self-serving and once been his best friend. A friend that stole his father, the only family he had left. Slash.  AU.

(9,161 I Explicit I WIP)  *sterek, stiles/omc, major character death, minor derek/lydia, cheating

He was already broken, but this added weight had broken the metaphorical camel’s back.

~PB~

Stiles was kicked out of the pack. He helped them, took the brunt of the pain, then was forgotten by what seemed like everyone. Then, everything is not as it seemed. He’s not so alone anymore and maybe not so human. What will these new things mean for Stiles?

The McCall-Hale Diaries by inlightofvisa, thestarkinmypants (inlightofvisa), whereisthebepis (inlightofvisa)

(42,635 I General-Teen I Series WIP)   *sterek, brothers!Derek and Stiles

Basically, Derek is Scott’s older brother. Who steals Scott’s things and is generally kind of mean. And by that, I mean that he steals Scott’s best friend. And then starts going out with him. Who would’ve thunk.

True Alpha by ogeemattyb 

(48,481 I Teen I Complete)   *sterek

So Scott’s a werewolf now, and this mysterious Derek Hale has come back to town after being gone for years. Through all of this new supernatural business Stiles finds himself and a place where he might actually be able to help. Now he just has to make sure that his best friend survives and if he can help Derek take out the Alpha that is causing so much chaos, well that is all the better.

Or the one where I didn’t like what happened in Cannon, so I am changing things up a bit and making things happen like they should have happened.

True Mate by ogeemattyb

(64,342 I Mature I Complete)  *sterek

Gerard is dead, Jackson is a wolf, and the pack can finally relax. But Stiles has gained some new information about himself and Derek. Magic is a thing, and what the hell is a True Alpha, and why are he and Derek True Mates? What does that even mean? There are still quite a few things left unsolved and now that the threat is gone they can get to work on it.

Plus Scott has a long way to go in not only finding himself, but finding his way back to the pack.

Love. Be Afraid (Season 1) by Akinasky 

(201,978 I Mature I Complete)  *sterek

Stiles Stilinski is desperate for a distraction, he needs to not think about what time of year it is or how much he still misses his mom. He takes his best friend Scott into the woods and everything changes for them from that night on.

This is a slightly different take on season one (EDIT very different take on season one), and its all from Derek and Stiles’ perspective. This is a slow build Sterek, a lot of undercurrent stuff and the boys not talking about it.

Satan Has a New #1 by RubyRedCase 

(27,150 I Teen I WIP)  *steter, spark!Stiles

So I was browing pinterest and saw this prompt:

Fic idea where a lonely person sells their soul to Satan to be their friend. And Satan just rolls with it until he realizes at the time of their death he genuinely likes them.
Since he can’t renege on the contract he takes them to Hell and puts them in a high position of power. Demons hardened by millenia of torture now have to answer to a shy, self-conscious, quiet, depressed, lonely person who has unintentionally become Satan’s #1

And it has now taken over my life. Please enjoy literal devil!peter and Stiles!!

Stiles thinks no one is listening, so he just… stops talking. It’s just like that asshole Peter to refuse to take the hint.

Spark of Dark by Pirotess666

Ciao could I request he nightmare prompt for Henry with twin morgans?

(Want to change the name? Use this!

Henry was quite used to staying up later than you. After all, that was when all the good dark magic was done. In recent years, following your coming back, he’d stopped spending as much time trying to create evil magic and releasing the chaos upon the world.

Instead, he focused on spending time with his long-lost love, which he adored every second being with. But then, when the twins came along, he had even less time to devote to the dark arts.

Nowadays he simply read and researched spells, reading with a giddy grin in the darkness. You fell asleep a long time ago. Now it was just him and his tomes, skimming the pages.

That’s what he thought; then he heard the sound of little feet padding into the room, mixed with sniffles and cries for “Mama”. Henry looked up, spotting two heads of white hair. He smiled; Morgan and Marc were night owls, too.

Possible Ending Mystery Solved?

I’m going to have to credit /u/Moonwalking_Eren on Reddit for writing this. If the information we’ve had so far is correct, then I think we may have finally solved the “2000 Years Mystery”. Brace yourselves, and here we go:

Maybe a few noted a comment I made after the latest chapter release, saying that if calculating the Reiss rule under consideration of the 13 years rule backwards, you come to the result, that the first ruler must have come into power 1984 years ago.

Now, on 2ch and DCinside, a very similar calculation occured.

It goes:

145 Kings/Queens * 13 year = 1885

The 145th King is the one who went to Paradis Island, as we know from chapter 86.

So, we know the walls exist for 107 years (in the year 850).

1885 + 107 = 1992.

Also, it seems Eren has only 8 years left (he would die in 858).

1992 years + 8 years in the future = 2000.

Note that this only works if the 145th King was in his 13th year when he did the mind-wipe and gave the power to his successor in the same year. Also, Frieda received her power in 842. But from the year 743, in which the power from the 145th to the 146th King should have changed, it is not possible to get to 842 in 13 year steps.

It is just more calculation fun that maybe some would enjoy. It has some flaws.

To me, this gives us some insight on the ending that Isayama may decide to go with. My prediction goes as following: Timeskip, battle, timeskip, 8 years later, Eren has come victorious (hasn’t been killed or eaten in any of the chaos beforehand) and nears the end of his life. The Eldian Coordinate Source of Life Tree of Organics (as me and @falcon94ssy discussed) kicks in and we get a mindblowing explanation of how the Source predicted Eren’s death and gave him the dream in Chapter 1. Eren, having mastered the Coordinate abilities fully, manages to specifically determine who exactly will inherit his powers. As he dies, Mikasa says “See you later, Eren”, before heading off to find him in his new life… probably a baby. This is weird, but we all know Mikasa, if she knew Eren was going to absolutely die and never come back, she wouldn’t say something like “see u later”, come on now.

Leave me your thoughts!

You hadn’t heard the name Dean Winchester in three years or so. Three years ago, Dean was in a rush to get out of a town for what reason you were still not sure of to this day. He reassured you he would be back in no time. You needed to tell him something but Dean never gave you the chance because he already had one foot out the door. Three years later, not a lot has changed, you’re still living with your parents, you still have the same job as you try to get your life together. On that day, you worked the morning to afternoon shift at Sally’s, and in walks a man. You were worried about filling in someone’s else order when they came sauntering in.

why flintwood?

 There are three main aspects as to why Flintwood draws me in so much as a ship - as a writer, they have to do with what canon gives us, and what canon allows us to build off of. I personally love expanding on minor characters that aren’t as constrained by canon; therefore this ship is writer’s gold for me. 

war & peace - named for one another;

Starting from last names, the connection between Wood and Flint is pretty obvious - one incites the other. Tie in their given names, where Oliver equates to peace, and Marcus referring to the Roman god of war. Now, JKR is always deliberate in names, and her choice most likely refers to peace winning out over war in the end (Oliver beating Marcus finally in POA). But this naming explicitly ties these two characters together in a way I love to explore. 

What is interesting to me, in rereading their characters, is that Oliver is the one who is emotionally charged, quick to anger and retaliation in the face of Marcus’ needling. Marcus, on the other hand, sticks to more snide remarks, and seems relatively calm, albeit amused by Wood’s reactions. Oliver is noted as capable of putting aside all other concerns in favor of winning, even other’s well being. Marcus, on the other hand, seems to place more value on having the strongest team. He practices sneaky tricks and physical fouls on the pitch, yes, but doesn’t seem to want to risk the overall well-being of his team. “Peace” and “War” aren’t apparent in their actions, nor their motives. Both are bent on winning - the ways they go about it aren’t the usual representation. One could argue diplomatic Cedric Diggory seems to match a picture of peace better than Oliver does. 

In shipping terms, their names may speak to initial conflict, but digging a little deeper in the meaning of their names brings surprising similarities. Oliver also has meanings of affection; Marcus, defense and tenderness. It’s this semi-meta that’s drawn me in - that under the surface there is so much more to their characters, and so much could grow in a potential relationship. It makes for a fascinating play on characterization. As canon doesn’t give us much past the standard traits (enthusiastic mentor of a captain, the surly rival, respectively), I always go back to their names when writing.

Mercymaker Bioshock AU

Mercymaker Bioshock AU because… reasons

Amelie is a dancer in the upper parts of Rapture; she with her husband Gerard have built quite a life for themselves since moving to the underwater city. Gerard and Amelie regularly attend much of the nightlife in Rapture, and when Amelie isn’t dancing they attend formal parties thrown by some of Rapture’s elite.

One night while attending one of Rapture’s formal ball’s, Amelie is struck by a Big Daddy as it pursued someone else. The fall cuts her right forearm rather badly, requiring a visit to the hospital. While admitted, Amelie becomes acquainted with Dr. Angela Ziegler, a child prodigy who has made quite the name for herself as the assistant who helped discover ADAM’s regenerative properties.

Angela uses this technology on Amelie with her consent. It closes the wound but leaves a couple of straight line scars on her right arm.

They exchange a few words, Angela admitting she hasn’t been down here that long. Amelie asks how she’s adjusting to which Angela replies, “I don’t mind salty as long as it comes with something sweet,” as her hand brushes over Amelie’s. Amélie, still dressed in her formal attire, doesn’t move her hand away at the gesture, meeting Angela’s gaze with her own. They stare into each other’s eyes for a moment before Gerard bursts in. After assessing his wife’s arm he changes his focus to Angela, bowing before her, thanking the doctor for her efforts and telling her that they are most appreciative of her help.

Over the next month Amelie makes frequent trips to see Dr. Ziegler at the hospital. Usually it’s a minor cut, or a sprain, nothing time would not fix, but Amelie insists she needs ADAM every time to get her back out there as soon as possible. She couldn’t let Gerard down by taking a break, even for a night. Angela complies, as each visit is accompanied by very noticeable flirting from the dancer. It never escalates further as Gerard is always waiting very close by, eager to escort Amelie to wherever they had to be, even back home.

During Rapture’s descent into chaos a few weeks later, Amelie kills Gerard in a crazed ADAM-induced rage, believing he was planning to do the same to her given the chance.

As the years progress, Amelie transforms into a spider splicer, her eye colour changed from hazel to a yellow pigment. She spends her days hunting down little sisters for their ADAM. Every time she adds an additional line to her right arm to signify another kill, more ADAM to add to her supply, all branching off the lines she was marked with by Angela on her first visit to the doctor.

Meanwhile Angela manages to survive the onslaught going through Rapture with the help of Dr. Brigid Tenenbaum. Tenenbaum has regrets over the creation of the little sisters, or little ones as she calls them, as she and Angela try their best to cure the little ones of their illness, to give them another chance at a normal life. They learn about a ghost that lurks in the night, assaulting any little sister unfortunate enough to have lost their Big Daddy protector.

During a raid where Tenenbaum and Ziegler are rescuing a group of little ones from an apartment building they encounter Amélie. In her now altered state, Angela doesn’t recognise her at first, but as Amelie engages Angela in combat the doctor can recognise the woman that was before them. Thinking quickly, Angela pierces Amelie’s chest with a little sister’s harvesting needle, incapacitating her.

Angela spends weeks treating Amelie, curing her of the excess ADAM in her system. It takes an excruciatingly long time and leaves Amelie in immense pain, but it eventually clears out of her body, leaving her sane and in control again. Amelie still remembers the atrocities she committed as a splicer, but Angela, with the assistance of Tenenbaum, help her find redemption by aiding them in rescuing the little sisters before others can harvest them.

After a successful job where they rescue a handful of little ones and secure some additional supplies for their makeshift orphanage, Angela offers Amelie a bottle of water with the remark “Don’t worry, it tastes much better than the water outside.” Amelie replies, “Hmph, I don’t mind salty as long as it comes with something sweet,” placing her hand on Angela’s shoulder. Angela gazes into Amelie’s yellow eyes as they both lean in for a kiss. Tenenbaum is taking care of all the kids across the hall and won’t need to check the supply room until breakfast the next morning.

Amelie takes ahold of Angela’s waist as she guides her towards the bed. They have much to catch up on.
