I think my experience with YOI was maybe a bit luckier in that I didn't fall into the "trap" of thinking Victor had some evil ulterior motive in going to coach Yuuri because when I started watching I had already spoiled the show. The kiss caught my attention and I got a brief run through of everything that had happened so far so I got caught up on all 7 eps and watched the rest as they came out, and I was aware of Victor's good intentions. He's not cruel, but he's HUMAN and an overall good guy.

Couldn’t agree more, anon!

But even while watching the show tbh (I started watching between episodes 3 and 4) it wasn’t that difficult to see that Victor was just a normal person. Of course, some people started imagining he could have ulterior motives behind his coaching Yuuri (though I was really convinced he was just a sweet guy) - which makes sense considering the narrative, but it was an adorable plot twist all the same!!

He is human!!! And people forget about it!! He has good traits and bad traits and it’s really upsetting to reduce him to just flat, comedic traits all the time. Victor has failed, yes, and we’ve seen it, but it’s important to remember that he’s learned from his mistakes and has grown into a much better version of himself by episode 12. 

I can’t speak for anybody’s experience but my own, but SSRIs definitely have helped me with depression so much. like I possibly wouldn’t be here if I hadn’t been prescribed them. I hope I can function without them someday but they can be lifesaving for people who need them. also if you’ve forgotten to take your meds go do that, that’s my ulterior motive here

do you think Madison beer was maybe trying to get w one of the twins? I know that’s stupid to say but she seems pretty sketchy to me, like the type to have ulterior motives... lol ALSO I’m not some crazy fan who says they can’t date or whatever like I just think it’s an interesting topic

Idk how I feel about her tbh. She kinda gives me a weird, sketchy vibe. & plus a lot of things that have been said about her hasn’t been all that great. Sooo if she’s trying to talk to one of them, maybe she should probably leave them alone lmao. But I mean they can talk to or date who they want, that’s not my call. But ehhh.

Q: What do you think was going through Flint’s mind when Madi & Silver reunited in 4x3? Your face expresses so much. 

Toby Stephens: A bittersweet happiness for Silver, mixed [with] a sense of his own isolation.

full offense but why are y’all sleepin on bob newby?? he was an adorable dork who was so supportive and accepting of joyce and her kids that it literally got him killed. he constantly showed joyce how much he loved her and was always there for her when she was afraid or worried. he made a real effort to connect with her kids and build a healthy relationship with them with zero (0) ulterior motives. he was literally one of the most kindhearted and genuninely good characters in the show and he deserved so much more. why aren’t we all talking about bob newby like wtf.

Dearest Potter,

My mother insists that I write you to formally thank you for speaking on behalf of us at the Wizengamot. Without your testimony, we most certainly would have faced time in Azkaban.

So: thank you.

If you were expecting any heartfelt words of gratitude, then you’ve mistaken me for those hero worshippers who submit their amateur poetry about you to The Daily Prophet. Even as a child, I could write better poetry than that. 

Hoping to never speak to you again,

Draco Malfoy


Malfoy,

Please pass my appreciation on to your mother. I sincerely hope she is well.

As for you, I don’t need or expect your gratitude. That’s not why I helped you. You wouldn’t understand this of course, but those of us who have a heart, help others simply just to help others.

I also happen to enjoy and appreciate the notes people leave in The Daily Prophet for me. I’ve never heard any poetry from you, so I wouldn’t be so quick to throw stones.

Wishing you horrible misfortune,

Harry Potter


Don’t give me that load of crock, Potter. Even heroes have ulterior motives.

I also highly doubt you enjoyed last week’s poem: “I see Harry Potter’s emerald eyes, they sparkle and shine, all magic defies.” What does that even mean?

Seeing through your media-trained lies,

Draco Malfoy


Malfoy. You only think I’m lying because you can’t comprehend anyone’s perspective but your own.

That poem was heartfelt and thoughtful. I have a copy of it on my fridge - that’s a muggle appliance.

Rejecting your rude assumptions about me,

Harry Potter

If you wanna write a ficlet based on the tags you put about Derek not being good at receiving compliments so stiles compliments him always I can guarantee you that I will 100% read it and reblog it and comment about how much I love it :D

Well how can I resist that??


The first time it happened, Stiles didn’t think anything of it. Standing over the smoldering remains of the creature that just tried to kill them, he said “nice job”, gave Derek a friendly slap on the back, and suggested they go out for celebratory we didn’t die today milkshakes. He was pleasantly surprised when Derek both agreed and paid, and he dipped fries in both to see if they went better with his strawberry or Derek’s chocolate.

(The answer was chocolate, and Derek didn’t even get mad when three of Stiles’ fries were lost in his shake.)

The second time, he was marveling at the obscure text Derek managed to track down and said, “dude, you are literally the best, I’m buying you pizza!” And shockingly, Derek let him, and even told him what toppings he wanted. That might not seem like much in the grand scheme of things, but Stiles had spent years watching in silent judgment as Derek picked off half the toppings from the pizzas he ordered for the pack, as if he couldn’t get another for himself that he actually liked.

Stiles told him he liked the way he rearranged the loft, and Derek sat through the entire extended edition of The Fellowship of the Ring on his new flat screen.

When he mentioned liking the fancy pasta dish Derek made and asked for a lesson to make it, Derek agreed. He showered compliments on Derek’s meticulous overhaul of the bestiary and Derek let him borrow three books.

Derek never let anyone borrow his books, they never left the loft.

These events were all spread out enough that it took a while to click, but when it did, it was both a revelation and incredibly depressing: Derek had no idea what to do with even the most casual of compliments.

Sarcasm was no issue, Stiles knew that much—he’d personally thrown out enough nice martyr complex, jackass and the like to figure that out—but anything that was even remotely sincere?

He started paying attention after that, to the way Derek would stiffen and his eyes would widen a bit before his face closed off again. He would go quiet, maybe nod, and quickly agree to pretty much anything just to get the focus back off himself.

Because Derek was actually embarrassed by compliments.

Watch “The Good Doctor”

Seriously. Go watch it. Support it.

I am crying right now because this show is about a young man with Autism who, his whole life, faced stigma even as he was a genius. He faced many hardships that neurodivergent people face every day, and yet he still pushes forward.

Throughout the episode - the first episode - I felt like someone was batting my heart with a baseball bat until the very end where they reached in and tore it out. The end left me in messy tears.

I never cry in movies. Moved? Yes. Cried? Never. Dogs could die and the main protag could lose it all, and I didn’t bat an eye. This had me crying.

The main character is a savant autistic young man who only wants to help people, help them live long and wonderful lives because of the tragedies of his past. He’s brilliant and has no ulterior motives to be at this hospital besides help people. Yet, even as he has one in his corner, everyone else sees his diagnosis and tries to shut him out.

But he tries. He tries harder than anyone else would. He does the seemingly impossible even as everyone else struggles to understand him.

This show is so important to me as someone who is neurodivergent and as someone who has grown up with autistic family. Please, please watch the show on ABC or hulu or some channel that streams it for cost because it needs support. It needs to stay on the air. It’s too important, already, to lose.

PS For friends, please be warned that this may be triggering. Emotional abuse and abuse of animals is present as is death. If these deter you, then please reblog and have others see it, understand the meaning of the show.

It’s that time again. Fake screenshot edit things. Some notes:

- No one can understand a person who can’t walk better than someone who had their legs chopped off and augmented with robotic ones.
- The subs for Barker in the first edit with him and Chris was going to be some lyrics from this song. But I figured people would be able to pick up on Barker’s, um, ulterior motives, anyway.
- I really enjoy making glow effects.
- Sonia’s redesign was made by @drawloverlala.

ok but is anyone talking about how like

Chloe rehired her butler without any push from Ladybug? She decided being nice wasn’t so bad on her own, rehired him on her own, and helped out on her own. Not to mention she got Marinette’s dad to attend the party to teach about macarons after she ruined their chance at school. She did all of that without being prompted.

Was her ulterior motive keeping Adrien as a friend? Yes, yes it was. Did that dictate every decision henceforth? No. She did those things because she wanted to.

If you don’t like her, fine, but you have to give her some credit. She’s already doing so well in terms of development and it’s been one episode.

Previously, Ladybug had to prompt her to rekindle her friendship with Sabrina.

This time, Ladybug didn’t need to speak a word.

Chloe Bourgeois is well on her way to a redemption, folks.

And it.

Is.

Beautiful.
