anonymous asked:

I was reading the supposed leaked spoilers, and i think it makes sense for Clake to die, i obviously don't want her to, but if they're going for the exact same conclusion again where she pulls a lever and closes the ark and a lot of people have to die or be sacrificed i think it's crucial for the storytelling that she sacrifices herself with them, because otherwise this show is the same again and again, idk how the show could survive without her though, it's gone downhill as it is

Okay, well, I wasn’t going to really write the theories I have about s4, but I'm bored this Sunday afternoon, so here is what I think COULD happen (if you read previous theory blurbs I have written…it basically is a continuation of that.) Of course, take all what I’m saying with a grain of salt and this is what I see “could happen” with some of the things i have seen and if I was writing the story and trying to salvage it. 

Also, I think the script leaks are hella misleading if you look at them closely. It says, “As she steadies herself on the desk, consciousness fading, we get our first look at her face: IT’S COVERED IN LESIONS, a mask of puss and death. We’ve seen this horrific look before: IN ABBY’s VISION. She stands there for another moment, fighting, fighting, before collapsing in a heap. Unconscious. Or worse. No sign of life. Dying on a dying planet.”  It just says that Clarke has collapsed to the ground and is dying.  However, there are six acts in television and it is possible that she is able to survive by being saved by someone that finds her in the lab. Because, like you said, I don’t see them even THINKing about getting a season 5 without Clarke. Jason has said before that this is basically Clarke’s story and unless Eliza asked to leave the show, killing her off would REALLY make zero sense. However, I had the same thought about them not killing Lexa off and they did so….yeah. But yeah I agree that Clarke’s story should end with her sacrificing herself to save her people. 

I think it might end with there being Mountain Men, Grounders, and people living in space again at the end of the season. I believe we will have people living in the bunker that is on Becca’s Island (i think it is a bunker), Nightbloods will be able to survive the increased radiation levels and will be ‘the grounders’, and then the 6-7 people we see in the leaked script will be the ones living in space and possibly they will find out that they aren’t the only ones in space.

Filthy Reader X Rick Abduction Fic

Okay, so I’ve been meaning to write this Rick X Reader porn fic for a while.

All sorts of themes in this one, mainly BDSM and abduction, it’s all kinda consensual, but on the border of a bit wrong, well, damn, it’s hard to explain, just consider that as a warning. Also there’s a bit of a twist too.

I would actually go as far as to say this is one of the most beautifully perverse things I’ve ever written, but that’s probably because its pushing some of my own kink buttons, ha ha.

Hope you like it and please leave me feedback if you are so inclined, even if anonymously as it keeps the writing fuel firing.

My 300th post - NSFW Filthy fic, “Mind Games” is under the cut. (about 3600 words)

Fractal

Summary: Chaos, besides its own natures, has a little order on it. Chaos, without order, leads to destruction itself. When the object holding the chaos of the world is damaged, maybe a little more than order is going to be needed to fix it. Abomination! AU

Chapter 1

Akumas were always weird.

No matter how intimidating they looked on the exterior, their motives were something that, if it weren’t for the fact they were busy trying to protect themselves, would make their victims tilt their head in curiosity. At least Chat, admittedly, had done that several times in the past.

Didnt’t mean those motives were less important for the akumatized person.

Or make them less dangerous.

9/11 Museum (1/3)

After many years of construction, paired with a significant cost overrun, the 9/11 Museum at Ground Zero opened two days ago to the general public. I was fortunate to obtain a ticket for yesterday afternoon.

The museum is located in the foundations of the WTC twin towers, underneath the memorial basins.

Artifacts shown above are a fragment of the North Tower broadcasting antenna, one of the 99 elevator motors and the remains of FDNY Ladder Company 3 truck.

“USS Iowa (BB-61): View of bridge and forward fire-control positions. Note Mark 38 main battery director, with Mark 13 fire control radar, on tower; several electronic counter-measures antenna on tower; ventilator and rangefinder on turret side. Photographed while at sea, off San Francisco, July 1947.”
