Enjoy! I actually have a bit of Pevensie interaction in this so i hope you don’t mind.

Your name: submit What is this?

(Y/n) gripped her books tighter and looked down at the ground as she walked down the hallways of her school. She felt people staring right into her. A few whispers were said and (Y/n) was able to pick it up even though the hallway was filled with students being loud and talking about other things.

“Just look at her… She’s so… Ugh.”

“How did she end up with him.”

“She’s not very appealing…” 

“I don’t see what he even sees in her.”

“Well maybe she has a wonderful personality, something you guys don’t.” (Y/n) glanced up at the person who said this and recognized this person to be Peter’s younger sister, Susan. Susan smiled at you but turned back towards the rude people and glared at them. 

“Even so, her looks would just be a no to me.” 

“Say it again, I dare you.”

“Edmund, stop that! Don’t go around picking fights.” Lucy held her older brother back. 

(Y/n) finally approached her locker and proceeded to put in her combination. She had on a small smile. She actually never really spoke to Peter’s, her boyfriend, siblings. (Y/n) was always too scared to. Plus, their relationship was a secret on her request. That is, until someone found out and told everyone. 

“I bet you’re only defending her because she’s your brother’s girlfriend.” (Y/n) immediately stopped moving once she heard that. She was in the middle of putting away a textbook. 

“Wait, what?” She heard Edmund say. “No! I’m defending her because she’s a person! What’s wrong with you? Lucy let go of me, let me hit them!” (Y/n) sighed with relief and put her textbook back into her locker. She closed it, set the locker back to zero (it was a little habit she always did) and headed off to her next class. She walked past the three Pevensies but continued to look down at the floor. 

“Hey, wait up!” Lucy started to run to try to catch up to (Y/n). (Y/n) stopped and looked back. She noticed that the other two Pevensie’s weren’t too far behind her. 

“(Y/n), right?” Lucy smiled at her as she finally caught up to her. “I’m-”

“Lucy, I know,” (Y/n) chuckled and placed a strand of her behind her ear. “Peter told me a lot about you guys.” She glanced over at Edmund and Susan. 

“I know you need to get back to class so do you mind if we can talk after school?” Lucy asked. 

“We’d love to get to know you,” Susan smiled. 

“Yeah, especially since Peter’s been hiding you from us,” Edmund tucked his hands into his jean pockets. 

“Um, yeah that’s fine. I’ll just tell my mom I’m working on a project. Uh, will Peter be there?” (Y/n) asked. “I haven’t seen him at all. Though, I never usually see him during school.” 

“He should be, especially since it’d be better if we could talk at our house. You know where we live, right?” Lucy took out her phone. “If anything, give me your number and we’ll just pick you up after school.” They quickly exchanged their numbers, said their goodbyes, and went off to their respective classes.

(Y/n) kept constantly checking her phone even if she knew it wasn’t vibrating. She just needed to look like she was doing something. Especially as she waited to get picked up. 

‘Ding!’ (Y/n) looked down at her phone and opened up her messenger. 

Hey, we’re right there.’ -Lucy. Right on time, a car stopped in front of her. The window rolled down and it showed Susan sitting in the passenger seat. 

“Get in,” She motioned to the back of the car and a ‘click’ was heard showing the car unlocked. She opened the door and got in. 

Peter sat in the driver’s seat and Edmund and Lucy sat to the right of her. 

“Hey love, sorry. I’ve been getting stacks of work piled on top of me,” Peter said. He looked in the rearview mirror and made eye contact with (Y/n).

“It’s alright,” she smiled a bit. (Y/n) understood he had a lot of work for a couple of weeks. She knew it wasn’t because of what happened this week with everyone discovering they were dating. 

“So when were the two of you going to tell us you were dating?” Lucy leaned forward and rested her head on her hands while staring up at Peter. 

“You know I can’t look at you, Lu. I’m driving,” Peter continued to watch the road. 

“Well, I’m still going to stare at you until you answer,” Lucy smirked. Peter rolled his eyes and sighed. 

“Why do you want to know?” He asked. 

“Because I-”

“And me.” Susan and Edmund said at the same time. 

“Think the two of you look absolutely adorable,” Lucy sat up straight again and looked over at (Y/n). (Y/n) was blushing and looked away. “Plus, I want to get to know you, (Y/n). You must be a fascinating person if Pete here is dating you. He doesn’t get too interested in girls you know.” 

“It’s true, when I heard you were dating him this morning I was more than surprised,” Edmund backed Lucy up. 

“Yeah, Peter’s always been too busy in school work and keeping us safe. Though he really doesn’t need to,” Susan mumbled the last part. 

“That sounds a lot like him,” (Y/n) laughed a bit. 

“Yeah yeah, we’re here so get out of my car,” Peter ushered them out jokingly. 

After a bit of talking with the Pevensies and them learning more about (Y/n), (Y/n) sat in Peter’s room doing homework. She thought about what happened today and as much as the Pevensie’s were extremely nice to her, the words from the other students still hurt. 

A tear drop hit her paper and she put her pencil down. (Y/n) tried to wipe the tears away but they just kept on coming. 

“(Y/n) do you want any- What’s wrong, love?” Peter immediately rushed over to his girlfriend and pulled up a chair to sit next to her. (Y/n) shook her head trying to say she was okay but Peter knew better. 

“Shh, it’s okay.” He pulled her into a hug. “Was it what everyone’s been saying at school today?” (Y/n) nodded her head. 

“Well they’re all wrong. You’re beautiful and amazing. They’ve been saying you don’t deserve me but in reality I think it’s me who doesn’t deserve you. I love you so so so much.” Peter let go of (Y/n) and wiped a few of her tears away. He gave her a reassuring smile. “Smile for me, you look much better happier. Whatever happens, I’ll stick with you through everything.” 

“But, it’s not just them. I don’t think I deserve you. I’m just me,” (Y/n) replied. 

“That’s the thing, you’re just you. Which is why you do deserve me. I love you for you. I couldn’t ask for anything more of or less of,” Peter wiped a couple more tears away. (Y/n) felt a bit better and leaned her head against Peter’s shoulder. 

“Thank you Peter.”

“Anything for my best girl.”

(PART ONE) Meeting The Gillum’s TAKE ME DOWN TAKE ME ALL THE WAY DOWN TONIGHT - G-Eazy imagine ~~~~~~~~~ Imagine living next to Gerald Gillum your biggest enemy and hearing your parents invite them over for dinner. You start getting ready by drying your hair after your shower and curling it to nice lose curls, you apply nice gold eye makeup and surprisingly perfect eyeliner and a reasonable amount of mascara. You decide on the red dress over the lilac one just because your black heels would look nicer with it, you start to head downstairs and you hear the door open just to see the Douchebag of the neighborhood Gerald. He likes to think he’s an amazing rapper so he demands people call him G-Eazy bit I think he’s an asshole, though he is the hottest guy I’ve ever see- NO YOU HATE HIM WHAT ARE YOU SAYING UGH! anyway… we all walk into the kitchen to see a perfectly cooked meal consisting of chicken parmesan with steamed vegetables as a side and spiked green tea as a drink. I was never one to drink but my his family and mine were and of course Gerald went straight for the drink. We all took a seat and of course Gerald had to sit right next to me, what a prick! I took a mouthful of chicken and listened to my dad tell a joke and I laughed covering my mouth.
“Don’t you dare talk with your mouth open y/n it’s very rude.” My mother spat. I swallowed and nodded looking down embarrassed as everyone got silent, of course Gerald had to smirk and butt in.
“Mrs. Y/l/n I can definitely help her with that.” He said shooting a quick wink your way, you scoffed as your clueless mother asked him what he meant by that him obviously replying
“I can help her not speak with her mouth full” he says while placing his hand on your thigh slowly rubbing up and down. My mother still clearly didn’t understand but she dismissed it with a laugh and continued to ask the Gillum family questions while Gerald leaned over and whispered “I know we hate eachother but I can’t stand seeing you in that dress any longer and my jeans have never felt this tight around me before. I’m going to tell them that I’m taking you back to my house to show you around so I can get you out of that god damn thing, got it?” You quickly nodded as Gerald simply stated his dishonest intents of showing you around his house. Though you hated him you never had a reason to and deep down you always knew it was because you had this deep obsession with having him fuck your brains out.

Lots of people only see the ‘cheek-pinching’ side of their relationship, thinking that norway doesn’t care about denmark and only ever screws with him, but they don’t notice the hand holding part, they don’t see that, behind all the teasing, they love each-other so damn much

  • icey is turned away, trying to look all indifferent like ‘ugh guys i’m six years old, i’m not a baby anymore god’ but irl he’s holding den’s hand because he’s a cute little nerd

ALL REACTIONS

eregyrn-falls  asked:

(ugh how replying works on tumblr) I just wanted to say, I laughed at your tags on the Cartoon Levels post, because those were my exact thoughts. Nobody thinks people who watch The Simpsons and South Park are edgy weird outsiders, c'mon. They're as mainstream as Family Guy, only moreso. (Also it seemed slightly weird to me that Archer was left off entirely. Being fair, though, there were a lot of shows on the lower levels I hadn't heard of; but yeah, I'm Old.)

I mean seriously! I also just looked again and saw they put Animaniacs on level infinite or whatever, like what??? That show was insanely popular. Does being old and remembering the classics make someone an outsider now? Maybe. And yeah Archer was totally snubbed, cmon

“Welcome to S.H.I.E.L.D. I’m just going to do a quick psychiatric evaluation. Looks like you’ve had a bad day, huh?” You asked hugging your clipboard tight and sitting opposite the man. His hair was a chocolate brown which defined his eyes perfectly. He remained stayed silent so you just smiled at him; he seemed anxious. You set yourself a goal - help and befriend the man.

‘Yeah, well, hang tight Y/N. We still don’t know what we’re dealing with here and people are dropping like flies.’ Dean’s voice rang through the phone’s speaker. You were sat in the motel room, papers and books scattered on the table.

‘Ugh, when are you guys’ getting back? So you can actually help me with this crap.’

He chuckled lightly, ‘Well we’ve just finished looking through the morgue, and so we shouldn’t be too long now. There was this one guy though, Jesus, Y/N you should’ve seen it. His name was Toby or somethin’ and he was shredded. Like completely.’

‘Damn, man. When you come back, bring food.’

~~~

“Isaac,” you knocked on the already open door and calling the attention of the werewolf who had his back turned to you. “I have something to tell you.”

“What’re you doing?” You asked, suddenly confused with the duffel bag on the bed and some of his shirt and pants strewn on the bed, that was already neatly done, and a backpack already beside the cabinet by the door.

“Y/N,” he sounded surprised when he saw you, his eyes seemingly glassier. Suddenly forgetting whatever reason as to why you were at the McCall residence and in Isaac’s bedroom once you were pulled in a hug, he spoke softly, “I actually have something to tell you also.”

UGH LEE JIHOON, I swear you guys request stuff like this just to make me feel like banging my head against the wall, though I secretly love it

           It all happened so fast. Every time you thought back to it, your head started to spin and you couldn’t comprehend how this was actually your life, or how you allowed it to happen. But every time you looked down at your hand and saw the way that ring on your finger shimmered, the memories started to flood over you.

           Your mother approached you wearing an expression you had never seen before. As you tried to figure out what she could’ve possibly had on her mind, she said the words that had forever changed your life.

           “Honey, we’ve set up an arranged marriage up for you.”

           It had to be a joke. It had to be some sort of messed up joke, you thought to yourself. An awkward laugh escaped your lips and you shook your head, not believing her words for a second, but you fell silent when you saw her hand her head low.

           “The wedding is in eight months,” she said lowly. “You’ll be meeting him tomorrow.”

           And that was it. No explanation, no further description on the man you were suddenly engaged to, no information on what would actually happen tomorrow. Nothing.

           Without choice nor warning, you were set to be a married woman in eight months.

Imagine 29 || Request 11

You know, when I get carried away on making an imagine, usually they end up a mess..especially when I’m listen to something like Jacquie Lee’s Broken Ones. So after a lot of erasing and correcting errors, I finally finished it..gawd I’m a crying mess sometimes ugh… Anyway, here’s your request anon…i’m guessing these two are the same? sorry for any errors coz i fast wrote this.. Hope you guys like it! :D oh and btw..Brett is bi (idk how to feel about that..)

~~~

Your eyes widened at what happened.

“Oh, god.” Scott said, sounding just as surprised at what he did and it didn’t help when, though the hallway was filled with students, you felt this particular stare towards your direction.

Turning to the direction where you felt the staring was coming from, your surprise doubled when you saw Isaac looking shocked at what happened-but that didn’t really bothered you what did bother you was the face that he was standing right there.

“Isaac?” you called in a whisper because you still can’t believe that he was right there.

And just like that, the look on his face began to change into what seems to be of betrayal and hurt before he walked away and headed somewhere else and leaving you there looking dumbfounded all the while ignoring the rambling that was coming from Scott.

~

“How long have you known that he was back from France?” Stiles asked, looking towards the passenger seat beside him. “And you kissed her?” he almost exclaimed, pointing towards you sitting at the back of the jeep.

“Oh my god,” you sighed, feeling more embarrassed.

“I’m just as surprised as you to be honest,” Scott answered.

Once the jeep parked in front of the McCall house, you all got out and made your way inside where Isaac was currently talking to mama McCall. But once Isaac saw you come in with the dynamic duo, he immediately excused himself and headed upstairs where you followed him with a bit of difficulty with his long strides and your short ones.

“Isaac,” you tried to call his attention as you walked into his room, but only getting the silent treatment.

“Lahey!” you called after numerous times of calling him before he looked up to you.

“What?” He said, almost growling at you while he continued to put his clothes in a duffel bag on his bed.

“What do you mean what?” You asked, looking a bit mad at the way he was acting at the moment. “What’s wrong?”

“You know what’s wrong, Y/N.” He answered, going to his drawer and taking a tshirt. “You were kissing Scott.”

“Oh and you moving to France without me knowing isn’t wrong?” you retorted, crossing your arms on your chest and looked at him sternly.

“What else was I to do?” He exclaimed, zipping up the bag a big too rough. “Plus you were obviously happy.”

“How would you even know if I was happy just by how I looked a while ago?” You asked as tears began to fill the rim of your eyes, the ache in your chest starting to reveal itself-the same hurt you felt when you knew Isaac left without you knowing.

“Your heart was beating fast because-”

“Because I was with Scott and not with you?” You finished his sentence. “Why not when I saw you, i felt like I was meeting you for the first time again?”

“Or maybe because I was hurting that my mind began to play tricks with me all over again because I was seeing you standing there,” you continued, a tear already escaping.

The expression on Isaac’s face softened when he saw the tears starting to flow uncontrollably, you still rambling to him how hurt you were when he left. And before you knew it, you were enveloped in a tight hug, a hand cupping the back of your head while another rubbing your back in a comforting manner. Isaac knew that a sorry won’t cover what he did and he was determined to make it up to you, no matter how long you’ll make him wait saying that he deserved it after what happened.

Scandal Review, Episode 417, Put A Ring On It...


Guys, I loved this episode so much, even though it messed with all of my OTP fangirl feels.  

It was so good, and once again, we had a great episode that was made even greater by the absence of The Human Vibrator.  Next week seems to be all about him though, but we’ll tackle that later in predictions.


Anyway, let’s do this.


What I Hated

Cyrus’s wig.


Seriously guys, you couldn’t find a wig that at least looked like it belonged on his head?


What I Liked and Loved

1.  Olivia dreaming of her kidnapping interspersed with images of Fitz.


Ugh. Baby Girl is going through so much right now.


Did you all notice that her dreams had  a pattern to them? First we saw images of her kidnapping, specifically of her running towards the red door, running towards a perceived safety, then we saw when she first met Fitz, then back to the kidnapping and running, then back to her and Fitz in the Oval, then she dreamt of her throwing the ring at him, then she was running towards the red door, then other images of other key Olitz moments, including when Fitz ran out the clock for her, then lots of her running towards the red door, then throwing the ring at him.

I decided to slow-mo Liv’s  dream to see what order the images were coming in. Here’s what I got:


1.  When she first met Fitz (The Trail)
2.   Running towards the red door
3.   Her and Fitz making love in the Oval (Happy Birthday Mr President)
4.   Liv throwing the ring at Fitz
5.   Running towards the red door
6.   Fitz crying in her arms after his dad’s funeral (Episode 211)
7.   Ring throwing
8.   Running towards the door
9.   Fitz running out the clock with her (episode 220)
10. Running towards the red door
11. Them making love in the Oval
12.  Running towards the red door
13.  Throwing the ring
14.   Running towards the red door
15.   Throwing the ring
16.  Fitz crying in her arms after his dad died
17.  Fitz running out the clock with her
18.  Running towards the red door
19.  Throwing the ring
20.  Running towards the red door
21.  Throwing the ring
22.  Running towards the red door
23.  Throwing the ring
24.  Running towards the red door
25.  Throwing the ring
26.  Red door
27.  Throwing the ring
28.  Red door
29. Ring
30.  Red door



Now isn’t that interesting?  I found it fascinating that as the dream went on, the images that recurred the most were those of her trying to run to safety and her throwing the ring at Fitz. It was almost like she was equating the fact that she couldn’t reach the door, with her throwing the ring at him. I wish I could hear from the writers themselves about what the dream really symbolized.



2.   Olivia calling everybody but Jake to help with the Cyrus situation.


Yes, I’m petty, but that shit made me happy as fuck.


3.  Cyrus:  “I want that whore out of my house”



Cyrus about to give himself another heart attack.


4.   “Gentleman Johns


Great name for a gay bar.


5.   Cyrus:  "It sounds like a shotgun wedding"
Liv:        "It is, and you’re the pregnant bride"

Lol


6.   Cyrus:   “There hasn’t been a good time”
Liv:        "Of course not, it’s impossible to find time to do something that you don’t wanna do, funny how that works.“


There’s something quite delicious about this happening to Cyrus.  The person who never hesitates to make people do shit that they don’t want to do. I’m really happy that Liv called him out on his crap.  If anybody knows what it’s like to do something they don’t want to do, it’s Olivia Pope. Her entire relationship in one way or the other has been about doing the opposite of what she wants to do, in order to keep Fitz in the White House.


7.   Liv:  "We need the White House. There is no bigger stage, there is no bigger moment.”


I’m still puzzled as to why it wouldn’t have been a better option to simply call the wedding off, but I guess having a big splashy gay wedding at the White House would definitely change the conversation.


8.   Cyrus:  "We have bills to pass, we need the Teapartiers to pass them.  He has yet to publicly express his views on same sex marriage and he can’t rock the boat with Mellie’s senate campaign on the horizon. I can’t pile on and bother the president with my hooker problems.“


So Liv has to come up with a plan that doesn’t put Fitz in jeopardy, politically.


9.   Mellie: "A White House wedding? A gay Republican White House wedding?”

Olivia: “Hosted by the First Lady, and more importantly, the Republican candidate for senator of Virginia. Posting an historic White House wedding would be the perfect platform for a candidate who’s looking to transition from a social figurehead to someone who’s engaging at the forefront one of our most divisive issues of our time.  A leader, taking a bold step towards the right side of history. Breaking with her husband’s beliefs. Decisively. Unapologetically. Publicly. Never once considering asking the president’s permission, because this is something you feel.  In your heart. In your gut. Politics should never stand in the way of fundamental rights for an oppressed population of law-abiding Americans. That yours is the party of Lincoln, that love, is love. To be celebrated, never relegated or regulated.”



Man, Olivia played Mellie like a fiddle. She knows her so well. And she knows that Mellie’s ambition leaves little room for any kind of questioning or clarity of thought, when it comes to pushing up her presidential aspirations.
Bravo Liv!  This was such a great way of getting what she wanted without compromising Fitz.  She also didn’t do Mellie’s future potential run any harm. 

Did y'all peep that self-satisfied smile on Olivia’s face when Mellie was doing exactly what she asked her to do?



10.   Janet:  "I am Cyrus Beene and I would make a great controller


Oh man, I loved the flashbacks to Cyrus and his wife. She seemed like she was such a good person. Somebody who really loved him.


11.   Cyrus:  ”You know what, why don’t we get married?“


The fact that Cyrus didn’t have a ring prepared, and took his own ring off to propose to Janet tells you how spontaneous the whole marriage idea was. Especially as they’d only been dating a few months. Marry in haste repent at leisure Cyrus Beene.

12.  Janet:  ”You better not be joking. I am Catholic, I have been saving myself and I can’t just get divorced..“




Ooops. Talk about doomed from the start.


13.  Fitz:  ”I hear we’re running a quickie wedding service out of the White House now.“

All the lols.


14.  Fitz: "Who’s idea was this?”
Abby: “The First Lady just announced it.”
Fitz:    "Mellie did not think of this.“

Fitz knows that his wife ain’t shit.


15.  Abby:  "The president’s views remain unchanged.”


Even though publicly nobody really knows what his views are either way.  It was such a smart move by Olivia to use Mellie to get this done.


16.  Mellie:  "I am doing this for you.“
Cyrus:   "Are you? Are you Ma'am? How generous, how selfless. I cannot tell the difference between you and Mother Teresa.”


So much shade at Mellie from Cyrus here. We all know that Mellie isn’t doing this for anybody but Mellie.


17.  Michael: “Is there any way we can do this without my parents, Cyrus, please?”


The panic on his face though.


18.  Ronnie:  "Are we still in for racquetball next week?

So that’s what the kids are calling it these days? How does Cyrus manage to get all these pretty good looking dudes by the way?


19.  Sally Langston:  ”The spray-tanned former gigolo.

Yesssss, Sally’s back! Man I’ve missed that hypocritical bible-thumping bitch like she was my best friend!



20.  Lizzie:  ”Casting your lot with Olivia Pope, backing this terrible idea without checking with me, your campaign manager. What in the hell was that?“


21.  Mellie:  "We are not partners. We are not friends. You work for me. You fix for me. You don’t accuse me. You do not judge me. You most certainly do not lecture me. You are not me. You wish you were me, but you can’t be me. Remind yourself of that. Do you understand?”


Well that told Lizzie. Although, that speech seemed like something she’d have loved to say to Olivia Pope, but chose to say to a less powerful target.


22.  Liz scurrying away like the rat she is after Mellie gives her a tongue lashing.


Girl where’s your backbone?



23.  Abby:  "You played me.“


Even though Leo and Abby have way better chemistry than her and David, this is why I can’t get on board with them. Leo is a snake and a sleaze, and didn’t even a bat an eye-lid at Abby catching him betraying confidential conversations.  I know that she’d do the same, but once again, what’s healthy about mutual betrayals?


24.  Leo:   ”You poked the hole in the condom, not me. I kept it wrapped up.”.


So many lols.


25.  Cyrus:  “You need to stay on your side of my house.


Ugh. Cyrus stays being a hypocritical ass.


26.  Janet:  ”I definitely never knew it could be different….I am lonely here Cy, with you. It has been 16 years and I barely know you.  Being with you is a lonely experience.“


Poor Janet.


27.  Janet:  ”How about I will admit I’m not having an affair, if you will admit that you are gay?“

Oops….


28.  James: "Cyrus, are you ok? Because if this is happening too fast, tell me.”


I love the fact that Cyrus literally walked out of the closet from the flashback about the end of his first marriage, into his bedroom with James on his bed.
If that was intentional, then bravo to the writers and Regina King for that great piece of direction.


29.  Olivia:  "No one is calling anything off. No one is quitting. Not until I’ve tried everything. Everything. Is that clear?

Lol at Mellie shutting the fuck up, then resentfully mimicking Olivia’s ”Ok then.“ Man she’s so salty that she can’t be Olivia.


30.  Olivia’s hair and dress in Cyrus’s flashback to his and James’ wedding.


I love how much softer she looked back in the day. I wish she’d wear dresses more often…


31.  James: "I want to be Cyrus Beene’s husband, and I wanna be a journalist, but I don’t want to be ‘Cyrus Beene’s husband, the journalist…”
Cyrus:  "I’m never gonna ask you to do that, compromise your principles, or to influence your work. I love you too much for that.“



Man, when I think of how badly Cyrus fucked up James just before Jake murdered him. 


32.  Olivia’s second dream sequence scene;

1.  Flashback to her and Fitz making love in the Oval.
2.  Throwing the ring at Fitz.
3.  The red door
4. Throwing the ring at Fitz.
5. the red door.
6. Fitz crying in her arms after his dad’s funeral.
7. The red door.
8.  Throwing the ring.
9.  The red door
10.The image of the clock that Fitz was running out with her.
11. The red door
12. Throwing the ring
13. Running towards the red door
14. Throwing the ring
15. The red door
16. Throwing the ring
17.  The red door
18.  Throwing the ring
19. The red door
20. Throwing the ring
21.  The red door.
22.  Throwing the ring.



Once again, Olivia seems to be equating the red door that she can’t reach to safety with throwing the ring at Fitz. Maybe the loss of that ring means that she can’t reach safety without it?


33.  Fitz:  ”Don’t you love Vermont?

Fitz wearing the Navy sweater that Olivia clutched while crying over him in the presidential closet, when he was shot was kind of everything. Shonda knows that Olitzers pay attention to those kinds of details.


34.  Fitz:  “It’s a ring.  Very old. Rare. One of a kind. It even has a name. Doux Bebe. It was my great-grandmother’s. Her father bought it for her at auction in Paris. She wore it at her Debutante ball. And I was supposed to give it to my wife and I didn’t. It just never felt right, so I kept it. And now I know why, because I was supposed to give it to you.” 

So many feels. So damned many.



35.  Fitz:  “You don’t have to love me. You don’t have to come back to me. But if you could wear this…if I could know that you were wearing this. Then even if you hate me, I’ll know we’ll be okay. I’ll know you’re out there.” 

I loved that Fitz said this. It wasn’t him being manipulative or possessive, or him trying to “rob her of her agency”, a charge that regularly gets aimed at him by Haters.  He just wanted a connection to her. One that told him that they were ok, regardless of what she was doing, or even who she was doing.


Dear God, my feels over this entire scene was off the charts. Yes I ugly cried, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Olivia was so torn.  We know why she left the White House, she’d left for his sake as well as for herself. She was protecting him like she always does. Protecting him from her treacherous mistake, trying to make sure that their association didn’t tarnish his reputation and his presidency. Trying to make sure that she didn’t ruin him.

I genuinely don’t see how anybody could watch that scene and not feel moved. Olakers don’t count because they generally tend to hate Fitz more than they love Jake.  For them, Jake not being Fitz is all they really give a shit about, because otherwise, they wouldn’t give two fifths of a fuck about him.

It’s funny, but I was terrified that they were going to have sex, and the relief I felt when it ended with Olivia just hugging him was immense.  We know how hot these two are together, but that scene would have been ruined if they’d got all hot and heavy. It just wouldn’t have been appropriate, and would have ruined a really beautiful moment between them. This was Olitz at their best to me.


36.  Olivia:   ”I could never hate you

All the tears. Dammit. Olitz for life, people.


Honestly, I just don’t see how Shonda isn’t going to have these two people end up together. I don’t see how the writers are going to have her choose The Human Vibrator over Fitz. Not after this episode. I think the choice to not have Jake in the episode was a very deliberate one.  They’re telling us that no matter what happens with Fitz, Jake is not the one, and he never will be. He’s not the one who keeps her awake at night. He’s not the one that makes her heart ache. He’s not the one that she wants to protect to her detriment.  He’s not even worthy of getting mad at.  He’s simply not the one that she truly wants. Some people might want to deny that she loves Fitz, but that’s their business. I think what’s on the screen is pretty clear.  Their back and forth is annoying, but the fact is, Fitz is who she wants, not the spy who choked her.



37.  Fitz:  ”I just want you to be happy.

I’m so back on board the Olitz ship. No half measures.


38.  Fitz seeing Liv’s ring-less finger.



I loved that he didn’t even mention it. You could see that it hurt him, but he just carried on and I loved that.  Back when the writers were trying to make him out to be the devil, they would have had him petulantly mention the fact that she wasn’t wearing the ring. This way, haters can’t say that he pressured Olivia. If and when she decides to put the ring back on, it will be entirely her choice, and I’m such a huge fan of that.


Also, I love that he didn’t even hesitate to sign off on offering Sally Langston the position of Secretary of State. The woman who’d double crossed him and tried to oust him from the White House. The woman who even now was trying to bring him and his administration down.  All he knew was that Olivia wanted it done, and that was that. Gah, I loved that he just calmly gave her what she wanted. But then I guess when you’ve taken the country to war to save this very woman, offering an arch enemy a job is a piece of cake, huh?


39.  Fitz:  "You went around my back to Mellie.”
Liv:    "I did.“
Fitz:   "Nice move.”


Ugh. Fitz had so much pride in her. I loved that he understood that she’d been trying to avoid compromising him politically, by fracturing his already tenuous relationship with the Teapartiers and members of his own party even more.


40.   Olivia:  "But to be clear, you’ll be throwing Michael to the wolves to save yourself.“

Olivia seemed surprised that Cyrus Beene would make such a choice. Has she not met him before?  The guy nearly had his husband killed, and was ready to nuke her black ass, when she was kidnapped. Cyrus ain’t loyal to anybody but Fitz.  


41.  ”You think we approve of this? Of you? Of what you are? You think we spent all those money sending you to camp to fix you, only to have you to end up like this?  You make me sick to my stomach. Both of you.“




Well Michael’s parents sure won’t win any Great Parenting awards any time soon.  The way that they spoke to him though.  I felt so much for Michael in this scene.  It totally reminded me of how Liv used to be with her dad. Head down, shoulders down, eyes down. Submissive and child-like.  You could see that he wanted to just curl up and cry his heart out.  My heart kinda broke for him.  Nobody deserves parents like his.  You could see that Cyrus even felt the same way, despite their differences.


42.  Cyrus taking the tie despite James asking him not to, and manipulating him into helping fix a political situation for him.



Man, he didn’t even wait until after the honeymoon to break his promise.  Cyrus Beene, you’re the worst.


43.  Olivia wearing white!

Yessss, I never thought I’d miss that overdone color so much!


44.  Olivia:  ”We’re not throwing Michael under the bus.

Oh thank God.


45.  Olivia;   ”If you go ahead with this, trying to take down Cyrus, I’ll tell the world about another sham marriage, the one between you and Daniel Douglas.“
Sally:   "You would defame a dead man.”
Olivia:  "Only because you’re defaming a live one.“


I don’t know why Sally Langston even thought for a moment that Liv wouldn’t attempt to blackmail her using what she knows about her and Daniel Douglas’ marriage.  I loved this scene so much. I love Liv being badass, and fixing shit, and I love Sally’s bible-thumping shady ass.


46.  Michael:  I’m one of those people who’s been picturing my wedding since I was a teenager. I believed. Even in my stupid hometown with my stupid parents and idiot guys who threw rocks at me every day, I believed. Even when I was working as a pro, my worst nights on the streets, I still believed. I believed that someone was gonna love me, care about me, that I wouldn’t be alone, and it is my wedding day, and you hate me. You would murder me with your bare hands if you thought you could get away with it and I have no one who would even miss me. I have nothing. It is the day I’ve been dreaming of and I have nothing.
Cyrus: You’re wrong, you know. I would never murder you myself. That’s a rookie move. I’d pay a professional to do it. 



Man this scene made me cry so hard.  I was so happy that Cyrus found his humanity for a minute. I really hope that they make it, even if Cyrus is an asshole.  After all, they had a genuine attraction even back when Michael was trying to play him.


47.  Cyrus:  “You’re wondering what this is going to look like, our life. And I could lie to you right now. That’s how both of my other marriages began, with lies, so I could lie to you right now. I could tell you there’s a chance we will warm to one another, maybe fall in love and live happily ever after. I could lie, but I won’t. We’re not going to fall in love, and that is a relief to me because I cannot disappoint you. I cannot hurt you anymore than I already have. I cannot destroy your image of me or break your heart or damage your soul. You don’t believe in me, so I have nothing in you to break. I am on no pedestals. You see me for what I am. A filthy monster desperately trying to hold on to the last shreds of its humanity. You are a good person. I know that. Ella could use a good personin her life. I’m not promising much, but I will promise this. I may not do it well, but I will do my best to be your someone so you’re not alone. Okay? You’re not alone.


This is literally the most honest that Cyrus has ever been, and I’m here for it. 


48.  Fitz seeing the ring back on Liv’s finger.

I love Olitz at their best. When the writers just let them do what they do best. Be in love, show their love in all the ways that count.  Can you imagine how great they could have been had the writers not done their level best to destroy them?


Random Rambling

Man, that was such a great episode, made even greater because Jake Ballard wasn’t there. It really felt like vintage Scandal.  The writing was good, the case of the week was excellent because it involved somebody that we cared about, or at least knew, and was invested in.


I’ve said it before, but I really think that Shonda meant to tell this story at some point.  We all knew there was a story, but Shonda was never going to tell it until she was ready.  Apparently folks have been going in on her for lying, but what’s the point?  She finally gave us what we wanted, even if it was a ratings ploy, I literally couldn’t give two shits. I’m just happy that we got a poignant and beautiful Olitz flashback moment, and that Olivia put the ring back on herself. At least the Fitz Haters have no way of spinning that Fitz made her do it. She did it of her own volition and it was a beautiful thing.  Suck it haters.


I’ve seen Olitzers bemoan the fact that next week she apparently sleeps with Russell even though she’s got the ring on, and honestly people questioning that, like she hadn’t already been sleeping with her very own portable vibrator, whilst wearing said ring, made me scratch my head.  Where have you people been?  She wore it the entire time she went away to Zanzibar with Jake.  We clearly saw the ring while Jake was fingering her on the beach.   Liv having sex with another guy while wearing the ring, means nothing. Fitz knows that it’s not a promise to be faithful, and he’s been mostly fine with it, and even if he isn’t, as long as he’s still attached to his particular ball and chain, he knows he has no right to expect celibacy or fidelity from her.  Olivia sleeping with Russell while wearing the ring doesn’t negate the importance of the ring, or the significance of her putting it back on. So yeah, pipe down whingers.



Predictions


Having seen the promo, it seems clear that the show wants us to think that Jake is turning into a maniac.  As much as I’d like to believe that they’re finally ready to show us how crazy he  is, don’t know if I trust it completely. ABC promos lie. They lie blatantly.  I don’t see how anybody can spin "I’ll kill Liv” into anything positive, but I’m damned sure the powers that be will give it a go.   I’m more inclined to believe that Russell will turn out to be yet another person who was sent in to sleep with Olivia, and that will make me so damned mad.


If the episode doesn’t turn out to be quite so anti-Jake, then what does it mean that ABC have done a promo almost promising that Jake would be turning into a fully-fledged bad guy?  It means that they know that the Jake Ballard character aint shit, and that they’re aware that people are waiting for him to die.  I mean… that’s hardly a ringing endorsement is it?




By the way, if it does turn out that Jake is as crazy as we’ve always known that he was, I think it will have something to do with when he went to visit Rowan to ask for help with Olivia.  I’m thinking that Rowan said something to him, much in the same way that he did with Huck back in season 3, when he killed that guy who was threatening to expose what really went on with Operation Remington. Maybe he’s been given his orders by Rowan?


Either way, I’m bracing myself for way too much Jake on my screen. 

Watching Scott Foley make a hash out of his lines is not my favorite thing to do.


Anyway, seeing as the writers regained their senses this episode, here are some Jamie and Claire and Live and Fitz GIFs to end with.


Surfbort. Lol

my dude roommate was hosting a grill thing today and it’s been an experience. there was this white woman and i hate her, you guys. i have known her for like four hours and i hate her guts. she teaches english in a brooklyn public high school and like. things she’s been talking about:

making fun of students for names that are hard for her to pronounce, or that she deems silly, 98% of which of course belong to kids of color. special extra mocking for black urban names, of course. telling kids that it’s not that she’s pronouncing their names wrong, it’s that their names are SPELLED WRONG. blaming kids – as opposed to the system that was meant to educate them – for not being able to read or write well. she actually said “back when i worked with SMART kids – not that i ever will again –”

imitating kids’ accents. marveling at the kids who wrote involved or thoughtful essays. talking excitedly about how she liked to teach classes about comics, but deriding manga (all manga. all of it) in the same breath. going on and on about the manga she’s read that is violent/gory or misogynist or what-have-you as though american comics aren’t rife with that sort of thing. deriding kids for the stuff they choose to read and calling black self-published novels “street books” (”you can’t even BUY them in a REAL BOOKSTORE!”). publicly humiliating kids for reading “thugs and the women who love them” or “push” or “a child called ‘it’”. bragging about steering kids away from harry potter and toward c.s. lewis, and away from stephen king and toward h.p. lovecraft. backtracking away from THAT one real quick when i finally asked her, “what makes c.s. lewis better than harry potter?” bragging about turning a haitian kid who only wanted to read haitian writers onto vonnegut.

just a complete smug, self-satisfied, self-centered, contemptuous, snobby, racist white feminist MESS of a human being. i have given up and am hiding in my room now. please send your prayers to any black or brown child who is depending on this woman to educate them.

Thallen Week Day 5: Coffee Shop AU

It was strange how all his senses were sort of muted to everything else around him, but heightened when the cute blonde barista was nearby. Barry enjoyed it, though. He enjoyed noticing the scent of his deodorant when he walked by. He enjoyed hearing the sound of his voice when he’d ask if Barry wanted an extra shot of espresso in his coffee. Speaking of his which, he could feel it going cold. 

“I knew I’d find you here!” Iris came up from behind Barry and scared the living crap out of him. At least she snapped him back into reality. “Seriously, I suggest this place once and you’re back here like every day. C’mon it’s not like the coffee is that good.”
