Ooh!! What do you think each loser would react on riding roller coasters? :)
YES YES YES MORE AWESOME QUESTIONS I AM ONCE AGAIN HONORED!!!
Eddie: YOU PROBABLY GUESSED IT BUT this kid is terrified of roller coasters. His mom had told him that 5,000 people a year die on roller coasters (which even Eddie knew that was a gross exaggeration) and he vowed to never go on one… that is, until Richie Tozier happened. The Losers went to their local theme park and it took Richie about an hour to bribe Eddie into going on the ride with him (”I’d never let anything bad happen to you, Eds” “Here, come on the ride with me and I’ll do whatever it takes to get that stuffed bear I saw you looking at earlier”). Eddie finally got on the ride and held onto Richie for dear life and hid in the crook of his neck and guess what…..HE LOVED IT. He never told Richie that though so now when they go to the park Richie bribes him and gives him cute words of encouragement and it makes Eddie blush like crazy.
Richie: You mother fucking know this kid tries to ride in the very front of every single roller coaster. He’s the one thats clapping in line and getting all giddy every time the ride comes back for another group of people. He will only let Eddie sit with him. Plot twist: Richie knows that Eddie secretly likes the roller coaster but he likes to watch him blush when he promises the shorter boy that he’d never let him go.
Beverly: She’s the opposite of Eddie. She pretends like she loves roller coasters but secretly she’s scared of heights. When the ride gets to the top her heart drops and she closes her eyes and clutches the bar in front of her. After the first drop she opens her eyes and things are better. Her favorite part of the rides are when they are nearest to the ground.
Ben: He isn’t afraid of rides, he just gets real real sick. He will go on them and have fun but there NEEDS to be a trashcan somewhere in short walking distance when the ride is over because he’s gonna need it. It does not ruin his time though. Mike laughs at him because Ben will ride the ride, get off, puke, and then smile and say “Let’s go again!”
Mike: This dude’s a thrill seeker. He likes the roller coasters that go upside down and will be the first to hold his arms above his head when they’re at the tip of the ride before the massive drop. He and Richie have competitions like who will make the funniest faces when the camera takes a picture of them mid drop. So far Mike is winning the competition but that’s because Mike doesn’t have Eddie clutching onto him all the time (but hey, Richie isn’t complaining).
Stan: So Stan takes the “Let’s not and say we did approach” because he really doesn’t like big roller coasters. He would normally wait by the exit for his friends until Bill started standing outside near the exit with him. Stan tried to tell him it was okay and that Bill can go be with the other Losers but Bill insisted, “It won-n-t be as fu-un with-ou-out yo-u.” Now Bill and Stan make it a habit to sit together when the gang goes on big roller coasters or they head over to the funnel cakes and share one with brown sugar.
Bill: He can take it or leave it. They’re fun to go on but he also takes joy in knowing that all of his friends are having fun. When he saw that Stan didn’t like the big scary roller coasters, he immediately decided that making Stan happy would bring him more joy than any roller coaster ever could. One time he talked Stan into going on the carousel and it was the most he had ever seen Stan smile in his life (and Bill loved it).
It was in the late hours of the night, when the trousers
were already half buttoned up, that the words ‘you could stay’ stalled the fingers and gave birth to a thought. A
tentative whispered thought of maybe.
It was during minutes so tense and so vulnerable, when they
were each lying on their side of the bed not sleeping and not talking either,
that the thought of maybe trembled
It was in the stilted moments, when the nervousness
thickened and a shaky laugh escaped from a closed up throat shattering the
tension, that the thought of maybe solidified.
It was in the instant, when a hand found a hand and
hesitated until warm unsure fingers entwined and squeezed ever so gently, that the
thought of maybe grew louder.
It was in the dark of the night, when the sleepy body finally
heard the soul and wrapped its arms around the torso beside it, that the
thought of maybe could no longer be
It was in the early hours of the morning, when eyes opened
sleepily and the arms realized they never wanted to let go, that the thought of
maybe left the mind and settled in
kim yoonho about mark lee: i dont know much about idols so–when i first met him, everyone were still awkward with each other. it’s hard to have a conversation and i thought mark was a cold ice prince. but it was a mistake.
we become closer when we prepared ‘sing sang sung’ together. what shocked me was, he sleeps at 3am then wakes up at 5am to go to his schedules, then immediately come to film/practice for highschool rapper. he has such an impossible schedule. yet (whenever we meet up) never once did he mention about being tired. i always thought abt how tired he probably is yet he never says anything. he’s always being supportive and say things like “let’s do well” etc we work together until late on our performance and he’s always giving suggestions. with the thought of wanting to make a good performance, we worked well.
honestly i thought, he’s really a pro. we’re the same age but i really learnt a lot from him. he’s like a hyung that i can look up to.
and y’all transphobes can fight me on this i don’t give a fuck!!!!!!
he’s MASCULINE this isn’t even a headcanon this is just real life
keith is not a feminine trans man he isn’t the type to break gender barriers (not that that’s not awesome it’s just not for him!!) he wants to be very cis-passing and stealth eventually
he would like to be the most stereotypical male possible and so he gets SO EXCITED about the little things that make him feel more masculine, for example:
first time he really started to make his own money and had a means of acquiring it he went on a huge shopping spree to get all these men’s toiletries!!! men’s shampoo, deodorant, cologne….to most people these things seem so mundane but they make him so happy and excited
also when he’s shopping for these things for the first time keith tries on like 5 million different colognes and comes home smelling like some awful concoction of strong ‘male’ scents and shiro can smell him from the other room and is like ‘keith hwat the fuck’ and Keith just brings out his bag and is like ‘i couldn’t decide what cologne to buy so i got seven’ ‘and you’re wearing them all right now?’ ‘yeah’
has always been kind of quiet at least earlier in life bc he hated the sound of his voice….when he starts T he’s really impatient about it so if he has to talk to strangers he tests out what he’s gonna say in varying low tones for like five minutes when all he has to say is ‘hi can i get a large fry’
one time he fucks up his shot (he does subcutaneous which is right under the skin) and gets it too deep into the muscle…it becomes rlly sore and painful and it hurts to walk for a solid three days (this is me self projecting i did this last week dksnsksns) so he basically just lies around and it’s like ‘i never thought i’d say this but sometimes being a man actually is hard’
shiro is expecting him to maybe cry the first time he gets T because he’s been waiting for it for so long but keith gets so choked up he can’t think of what to say so when the doctor hands him the prescription he just goes blank and says ‘neat thanks’
he has like five different binders…,,shiro got him his first one like he helped him pick it out and keith was so grateful..,,shiro, being a great trans older brother to his great trans little brother?? iconic and canon
keith, sputtering: shiro i’m trans shiro: oh nice me too keith: waIT WHAT’
he has always been athletic but he likes it especially bc it makes him feel extra masculine!!! lifting weights is his fave as well as sword work obviously and running, but he likes to bench press & makes like specific workout routines and goals for the week, it’s really nice for him, it makes him happy..,,and when he starts T it becomes easier to build muscle so !!! he’s making gains!!
shiro: hey keith it’s your shot day keith, staring at the needle: …it’s okay i’ll do it tomorrow shiro, three days later: keith– keith: ……it’s okay i’ll do it tomorrow
the ACNE….you’re trying to tell me this boy is trans, on testosterone, and has flawless skin?? no bitch….don’t look at his shoulders…u will find acne hell
when he first gets up in space he realizes he obviously didn’t have his T on him and he kinda panics but. eventually he confesses to allura like he has to come out to her because there has to be some way right??? and it turns out allura is hella supportive (bc oh surprise she’s trans too!) and the alteans have some kind of cool space equivalent that substitutes really well idk i’m not good at coming up with things but it…works ok
keith, a whore for adidas and sports clothing?? u guessed it….that boy wants to lowkey be a jock. like an emo-jock mix
there’s so many more but i’m running out of steam and i should really be doing nanowrimo right now fjeawkljf;lkwea

i downloaded Sam Winchester saying,
“No, we have guns and we’ll find you ” and then put it as my alarm in the morning. so im woken up every morning by a deep male voice threatening me and it’s honestly alarming and refreshing at the same time
1. Do you think there's anything to be said about how Cisco purposefully sabotaged the speed bazooka for Savitar when you consider how in Rogue Time he was put in a very similar position but in that episode ended up giving in to the villains' demands? I mean, I guess he did try to tamper with the cold gun back then too and Leonard caught him, but I always felt personally that it was sort of a desperate, last-ditch effort on his part and not really something he planned out (1. because it wasn't
2. shown or stated that he tampered with either the heat gun or the gold gun - even though neither Leonard nor Mick would know how a gold gun works off-hand so it would have been the easiest to tamper with and 2. because all he did at that time was leave out a crucial piece of the cold gun that he still *built*, just didn’t put in). He was essentially in the same position - bad guy(s) threatening the lives of people he cared about (even if Caitlin was ‘Killer Frost’ at the time).
3. I’m not sure *what* exactly it could be saying; maybe that the loss of his brother has made him a bit harder or maybe getting/mastering his vibe powers has made him a bit bolder, or since that was S1 and given they had Barry at the end of this finale essentially passing the torch in some ways to Cisco, it might be showing that he’s grown up a bit and gotten more experienced in keeping a cool head in dangerous/deadly situations?
Now here is some meta I can get behind.
Cisco is season 1 was so goddamn vulnerable. And so brave. So fucking brave. This adorable and beautiful man with a heart of gold and jokes to match who stood up to Captain Cold with a vacuum cleaner and a voice hard enough for Snart to believe he’d actually use it. That, or Snart just had a soft spot for him because of it. Either damn way, the heroism of that moment.
And then things happen, bad things, and they’re getting worse. People keep getting hurt: Bette died, Farooq almost killed them all, Caitlin got kidnapped. But good things are happening too! He’s truly close with Barry and has a new bff, they tracked down Ronnie! Who is alive!!!! Even if Hartley’s still a dick (or not, depending on the timeline).
So Cisco takes the bad with the good and keeps smiling. Looks up to Barry, you know he does. And he’s got this family event he’s got to attend and he’s feeling super off because he just had this terrible nightmare of Dr. Wells straight-up murdering him and he’s shaken by it because that’s crazy, right? It felt super real, though, and he’s now supposed to play nice with his brother and yes thank you Barry let’s get some beer because fuck Weather Wizrard we beat him without breaking a sweat and –
And then Lisa Snart walks into his life and he’s so off-kilter with her beauty and of course it’s too good to be true, he even says so. But he’s so brave, again. Like with the vacuum cleaner. Except it doesn’t matter, this time. Because Dante is there, and no no no no no. That wasn’t supposed to happen. This – this is wrong. His personal life and work life were never supposed to bleed like this and for the first time he thinks he really understands why Barry hasn’t told Iris about his powers.
This wasn’t supposed to happen.
All he has for the next 12 hours is panic and adrenaline. Sweaty, slippery hands making weapons that make him sick. Not for him, but for Dante. He knows he’s a goner, but this is the only way he can stall for time despite that. So long as he gets Dante out of here, that’s what matters. That’s what keeps his fingers moving over pieces of machinery.
He tampers with it at the end because it doesn’t occur to him to do so before that. He’s so focused on coming up with and discarding plans for how to save Dante from this nightmare that he doesn’t think to ruin their weapons. He could’ve. He’s a genius. He’s kicking himself. But he tampers with it at the end as best he can and it’s pointless - it’s too late. But he’s never been in a situation like this and he wasn’t sleeping well before and now hasn’t slept and the adrenaline and caffeine are making him crash hard.
It was pointless anyway. Cold saw right through it. And he’s still not free. He’s supposed to stay awake, still, and make another one. For the cruel, beautiful, toxic Lisa. Cisco might hate her for a moment, there. But then, not. Because it’s another way to stall. Another day spent keeping Dante safe and alive and he even convinces his captors to feed them and refuel his coffee needs.
He doesn’t tamper with this one. He wants to, but he can’t bring himself to do it. Not to her. She did this to him, but for a little while there she was… nice. And smiled in a way no one’s smiled at him in a while and he can pretend she meant it but not if he ends up killing her with her gun backfiring (and not if Cold kills him for hurting his sister). So he finishes the mean piece of machinery and he’s still empty. He’s got some plans for deception, but really the best plan is to get a cellphone or any phone and contact Barry. He can be there (wait for it) in a Flash.
He’s working on the logistics (with Lisa, he thinks, it’ll work best. But then Rory’s outfit is the loosest and thus the easiest to steal from. But he can get closer to Lisa without being suspected, for sure. Decisions, decisions…) but then Dante rushes it. Cisco could smack him for it, honestly. He was working on a plan, goddammit. Not that Dante knew that. But if he’d given Cisco another minute or three, Cisco could’ve at least told him to try and steal Rory’s phone if he was gonna go all Rambo on him.
But then Cold walks in and all plans go out the window when Dante’s hands get iced.
Nothing like this has ever happened. Nothing remotely. It’s not supposed to happen. His family isn’t supposed to be involved.
And what’s he got to fall back on, thinking about it? What would Barry do? Let his family get hurt? Never, in a million years. But Cisco can’t jump in front of a weapon that’s already been fired, can’t save Dante when he’s already injured. All he can do is give Cold what he wants and hope he doesn’t die in the process. Hope Dante doesn’t die, at least.
He’s in a lose-lose situation with zero options and he takes the one he can live with and still sleep at night, he hopes.
Flash forward a few years. He’s been betrayed. Those nightmares of dying were real. He’s seen a blackhole he helped create swallow one of his very few friends. He’s seen a lot more death. He’s been pushed away and pushed back, himself. He’s been betrayed again, and he’s been terrified of what he knows he can do. Of the moment of temptation he felt at Reverb’s offer, the eyeliner notwithstanding. He’s seen magic and lost friends, too many now, and he’s grown and grown and grown.
He is powerful. Frighteningly so. And yet. And yet some days he stills feels like the Cisco who stood in front of the Reverse Flash, helpless in the face of his own death. Of the Cisco who stood in front of Captain Cold and whispered “Barry. His name is Barry Allen.”
And some days? Some days he feels a million miles away from that Cisco and wishes he still could feel like him. Because when Barry (his name is Barry Allen) as Savitar takes him, when facsimiles of his two best friends as Killer Frost and Savitar are colluding to kill him, he doesn’t falter. Not this time.
Because Cisco knows better, now. He’s thinking ten paces ahead. He gets that Savitar needs Killer Frost alive. Cold didn’t need Dante, except as leverage against him. It’s different, and it helps keep him calm. Savitar’ll hurt her to get to Cisco, if needed, but he’s bluffing at least about when he’ll kill her.
It doesn’t matter, though. The threat jarred Cisco memories. He’s been here before. And now, faced with this situation agin, he’s got a plan.
There’s no firing pin to tamper with, but he doesn’t need one, and this won’t be a last-second effort this time. You’d think Savitar would see this coming, knowing Cisco, but then, Barry didn’t see him tamper with the firing pin the first time around either. Barry just saw him save someone he loved, without any of the intermediate planning.
Cold was five steps ahead, Savitar is six steps behind, and Cisco…
Even if he hadn’t been here before… Cisco’s older. He’s bolder. He has experience not just with this but with everything. He has trauma and triggers and he’s been through his share of panic attacks and he has practice thinking around those things more than he did before. He’s seen a lot more death and pain and heartache.
He knows that even doing everything you can, even doing your best, the people you’re trying to save can still die anyway, in ways you can’t predict and can’t fix. Not even with time travel.
There’s only so much he can do, but this time around, he can keep calm and actually do it, plan for it. He’s not letting Savitar get away with anything, not on his watch.
