To say that we wish there was another much nicer way that we could do this is an understatement. Though a group of writers involved in this incident have come to the agreement that this must be done not only for the sake of the people who are a part of these networks, but also to let the general public, their and our readers, know of this situation and who the people that they are idolising really are.
So, without further ado, welcome to the truth about the Penetration Station:
Anon requests: Could you PLEASE do a second part for beanies and negotiations?! I loved
Another part for beanies and negotiations!
observes Jughead and (Y/N)’s relationship, and realizes it’s not just his
beanie that Jughead lets (Y/N) wear
Word count: 1,033
A/N: ah you guys
I’m so happy you’re enjoying my writing! I wasn’t planning on writing a second
part for this piece, but since it was requested I wrote it for you guys. I was also gonna queue this and have it published later, but I’m so excited for you guys to read this! Enjoy!
Although he and Jughead had recently hit a rough patch in
their relationship, Archie Andrews considered himself one of Jughead’s closest
friends. He also liked to believe that
he knew his friend pretty well. So when
he saw (Y/N) roaming the halls wearing Jughead’s beanie, he was ecstatic. He rushed through the school to find his
friend. In the lounge, Jughead stood
with his arms crossed and raven hair exposed.
“Dude!” Archie exclaimed as he sauntered over to
“What are you talking about?” Jughead questioned, eyes narrowed.
“(Y/N), of course!” Archie answered. “You asked her out, right?” Jughead shifted and uncrossed his arms.
“No,” he scoffed, but his voice wavered a bit. “Why would you think that?”
“Because she’s wearing your beanie,” Archie stated like it
was obvious. “The last time you took
that thing off is when you proposed to her when we were six.”
“We were six,” Jughead emphasized, slightly leaning forward.
“But you like her,” Archie said. Jughead opened his mouth to reply, but no
smart remarks came out. Instead, he
closed his mouth and looked away from Archie, sighing. “Ask her out, man.” Pursing his lips, Jughead shook his head and
walked away. Archie sighed and turned
around, spotting Veronica and Betty waving at him.
“Archie!” Veronica called, beckoning him over. He moved to the couch they were sitting at
and stood in front of the two girls.
“You’ve seen (Y/N) wearing Jughead’s hat, too, right?” she
asked. Archie nodded.
“I don’t get it though,” he said. “He never takes that thing off. I asked Jughead if he asked her out, but he
said no. I figured she’d be wearing it
because of that, since last time she wore Jughead’s beanie-”
“He proposed to her,” Betty finished, and Archie
nodded. All three of them simultaneously
“God he looked so smitten
yesterday,” Veronica groaned. Archie
sent her a questioning look. “Betty and
I were at Pop’s yesterday, and we saw Jughead and (Y/N) there. She had stolen his beanie and he was trying
to get it back, but he was enjoying it.
I swear he could barely contain his smile.”
“Yeah,” Betty smiled in agreement. “They’re both
Archie, Betty, and Veronica thought that the beanie incident
was a one-time thing. However, they were
proven wrong when they spotted (Y/N) sitting in Pop’s wearing Jughead’s jacket
a week later.
“Hey, (Y/N),” Veronica greeted, sitting down next to
her. “Where’s Jughead?”
“Working at the drive-in tonight,” (Y/N) answered,
smiling. Betty and Archie slid into the
booth seat across from them.
“Is that Jughead’s jacket?” Archie bluntly asked. (Y/N) looked down at what she was wearing.
“Oh crap!” she exclaimed.
“I forgot to give this back to him!”
“I’m sure he wouldn’t mind you holding onto it for a bit,”
she laughed, causing (Y/N) to smile and nod.
“Why’d he give it to you in the first place?” Betty
inquired. (Y/N) bit her lip.
“We were walking home from school, and I had forgotten my
jacket at home. I was shivering, and Jug
insisted that I took his,” she explained.
Archie affectionately rolled his eyes, smirking.
“Smitten,” he mumbled under his breath.
The next incident was two weeks later at a football game. (Y/N) had promised her friends that she would
come to the game to support them, and she managed to drag Jughead along with her. Archie smirked when he saw them sitting
together in the stands, knowing that it probably wasn’t too hard for (Y/N) to
convince Jughead to come.
After the game, (Y/N) and Jughead got off the bleachers and
walked over to the field where Archie, Betty, and Veronica were standing.
“You guys were all great tonight!” (Y/N) complimented,
beaming at her friends. They all smiled
in gratitude, when suddenly Archie furrowed his eyebrows.
“Is that-” he paused for a moment, contemplating how to
phrase his question. “Is that a new
flannel?” Betty and Veronica shot him
confused looks, whereas Jughead and (Y/N)’s fidgeted as their cheeks grew red.
“What?” Betty and Veronica exclaimed at the same time. Archie suppressed a smirk.
“It was raining before,” (Y/N) stated, and Archie noticed
Jughead refusing to make eye contact with him, “and we got drenched because
neither of us had an umbrella. Jughead
had a dry flannel and let me wear it.”
She shrugged at the end of her explanation, playing with the sleeves of
Jughead’s flannel. Archie was tempted to
ask (Y/N) why she didn’t just change into some of her own clothes, but he
decided not to for her and Jughead’s sakes.
Betty and Veronica shared a knowing glance. Finally, Archie managed to catch Jughead’s
eye. He smirked and Jughead rolled his
eyes, but the small smile on his face didn’t go unnoticed by Archie.
Archie would have completely missed the last incident if it
wasn’t for Veronica. Some weeks later
they were sitting at lunch with (Y/N), waiting for Betty and Jughead to arrive
at their table.
“(Y/N), that sweater is really big on you,” Veronica noted,
critiquing her outfit. “Please tell me
you didn’t just buy that.” (Y/N) smiled
“No,” she responded, “I’ve had it lying in my room for a
while. Figured I should put it to use.” Veronica scrunched up her nose.
“You shouldn’t have.
Not to be rude, girl, but green is not your color.”
“Oh well,” (Y/N) laughed.
“I’ll remember that next ti-”
“That’s Jughead’s, isn’t it?” Archie interrupted. (Y/N) bit her lip and pulled the sweater
sleeves over her hands.
“Maybe,” she mumbled, looking down into her lap. Archie and Veronica smirked.
“You know what, (Y/N)?” Veronica said. “Never mind what I just said. That does
suit you.” (Y/N)’s cheeks grew bright
“Oh god, guys,” she moaned, but they could hear the smile in
her face. Jughead and Betty soon walked
over to the table and joined the group. During
their lunch, Archie would occasionally glance over at Jughead and (Y/N). He frequently saw one staring at the
other. Smiling at his friends, Archie
couldn’t fathom how neither of them realize how smitten they were with each
My contribution for the humans are weird: Deja Vu eddition
The concept of deja vu. Like it doesn’t happen that often to humans so it’s pretty normal if aliens didn’t know that can happen to a human. Maybe it only happens to humans and aliens misunderstand the entire concept.
One time on an away mission we encountered it first. It was with human-Chloe, our pilot. I and a few others were with her sent to explore an unknown asteroid belt. It was fairly dangerous but we had learned that human instinct, their so called ‘gut feeling’ was quite handy at times. So the captain assigned her with us. I still don’t know how the human gut is involved in their logical thinking, something that to known knowledge happens in their brains, but who knows with that species.
We had mapped the outer rings and were busy with the inner parts of the belt, all went well. Human-Chloe cut some close edges, she calls it efficient manoeuvring, I call it nausiating, but we finished mapping the belt and were ready to fly back. I was watching human-Chloe closely, trying to brace myself for her ‘efficient manoeuvring’ when I noticed her shift uncomfertable in her chair. ‘Is everything okay human-Chloe?’ I asked. She turned around and brushed it off. ‘Oh, just deja vu.’ ‘What is that? Are you alright?’ I asked. Humans are know to be able to brush of major pain when they are busy. I looked outside anxiously. We were flying through a dense astroid field, human-Chloe needed to be in top condition for this and her frowning didn’t reasure me at all.
‘I just feel like I’ve experienced this before.’ Human-Chloe explained. She made a sharp turn, way to sharp if you ask me. ‘It’s nothing to worry about.’ I didn’t dare question her any further, instead held on for dear life as she nearly crashed into some astroids. I never knew humans were sensitive to the fourth dimension. But it would explain why human-Chloe wasn’t worried at all when cutting close edges. If she knew what was going to happend then that would explain why she was such a good pilot. This was great news, fourth dimentional sensitives on our crew! I knew there was more to that ‘gut-feeling’ of theirs.
When we got back I immediately went to update the system on our human knowledge. Weird they never mentioned it before, maybe humans think everyone has that. I can’t wait to ask human-Chloe how their 4D sensitivity works in detail!!
day in 1692, three women were brought before local magistrates in Salem
Village, Massachusetts, thus beginning the infamous Salem Witch Trials. The
women were Sarah Good, Sarah Osborne and Tituba and all three had been accused
of witchcraft after local girls began experiencing strange fits. Given the lack
of medical knowledge at the time and the preponderance of beliefs in the
supernatural, witchcraft was the only logical explanation for their condition.
The accused women matched the description of the stereotypical witch: Good was
a beggar, Osborne rarely went to church and Tituba was a slave of different
ethnicity. The women were interrogated by magistrates John Hathorne and
Jonathan Corwin and Tituba eventually confessed to witchcraft, claiming Good
and Osborne were her co-conspirators. The three were then sent to jail; Osborne
died in jail, Good was hanged and Tituba (as a useful confessor) was kept alive
and eventually released after the trials ended. The initial interrogation was
followed by many more accusations of witchcraft throughout the village and the
surrounding area, fueled perhaps by local rivalries, poisoned grain or just
mass fear. The manhunt resulted in 19 ‘witches’ being hanged, one pressed to
death and hundreds more imprisoned in horrendous conditions. The event is a
famous example of mass hysteria and has become a cautionary tale for religious
extremism and false accusations.
Apologies for the length. The revenge is sweet though.
I was a contractor with a small business (Company X) that did consulting and other services for bigger companies. I usually worked directly with these bigger companies and was operating largely as a direct employee of Company X, though not on site.
I enjoyed the work but some of the people at Company X were d*cks. Just petty nonsense like talking shit about me in meetings, and for no reason that I could discern. All their clients loved me; I was good for business. They were just being d*cks, like d*cks do. It didn’t matter. Since I was working mostly with Company X’s clients, I didn’t have to spend much time communicating with the d*cks.
Every month I sent my invoice to Company X, and the terms were they had 30 days to send payment. At some point, they promoted their main accounting guy (one of the d*cks, henceforth, D*ck Accountant) and hired a Deputy Accountant, who was put in charge of satisfying invoices, such as mine.
No one has lived through drama unless they were a kid growing up in the Disney era of 2005-2011.

Genie was born in 1957 in California. Her father determined that she was mentally disabled and therefore not worthy of his attention or care. He isolated her from everybody - locking her alone inside a room until she reached the age of 13. While inside this room, he kept her strapped to a toilet or enclosed in a crib. Due to her isolation, she was incapable of communicating or walking when she was finally rescued by Los Angeles child welfare authorities on 4 November, 1970.
Her father would beat her with a plank wood each time she attempted to communicate with her family and would bark and growl at her like a dog to intimidate her - this instilled a severe fear of dogs which continued after she was freed. He even grew his fingernails; the sole purpose being so he could scratch at Genie is she ever “misbehaved.” After she was freed, she was often used as a case study for psychologists, linguists, and scientists.
Genie was sent into care and while there seemed to be a series of breakthroughs in the beginning, there were also major setbacks - she was exploited and also abused by those who were supposed to be caring for her - she was sent to an extremely religious foster care home in which she retreated and in 1977, she managed to tell a children’s hospital that her foster parents had physically punished her when she had been sick. Following this, her speech never recovered and nobody knows for sure what became of her other than she was sent to an institute for the mentally undeveloped in Southern California in 2008.
Ok, so, even after aaaalll this time I’m still
seeing quite a lot of people who continue on bashing Sakura and saying how
useless she is and how she always cries and how Hinata is much stronger and so
on and so forth…
So let’s try to start from the very beginning. I get it, she was hardcore
fangirl in the first part but c’mon, you have to admit that at some point in
your life you acted the same towards someone you really, really liked…
Sakura was taking care of those two, guarding them and staying awake for hours,
keeping them safe.
Then the three ninja appeared and even tho she
was very tired, she still fought them and managed to hold them off enough so
others can come and help too.
Later in the exams, despite loosing, she
showed a nice power against Ino and please bear in mind that Ino is from a
powerful clan unlike Sakura who is from a normal family. After that, she showed
genjutsu skills, she was one of the few who didn’t get affected by the genjutsu
and that’s how she managed to free Naruto and the others from it. Then when
they tracked Sasuke, Naruto was scared, he was actually shaking when he saw the
monster in front of him and when Gaara sprung ahead to kill Sasuke, Sakura was
the one to stand and protect Sasuke which resulted in her getting caught.
She shows concern for her friends and is
selfless. She is ready to throw herself in between two of the most powerful
attacks only to stop those two idiots. And imagine what would have happened if
Kakashi hadn’t come in time.
They say that she placed a big burden on
Naruto and that she is using him to bring Sasuke back and yet she realized her
mistake the moment Naruto came back from the failed attempt in bringing Sasuke
back. She swore to get stronger and take off the burden she placed upon Naruto.
She started training with Tsunade and indeed got stronger. She healed a lot of
She saved Kankuro’s life. Even Chiyo was impressed by her skills.
Then when they were sent to retrieve Gaara.
She defeated Sasori. Yes, Chiyo helped her but Sakura showed incredible skills
on her own. Sasori praised her on a few occasions.
After that, Naruto was damaged by the Kyuubi’s
chakra. It was Sakura who healed him. Even tho she was in pain, she did
everything to make the wounds heal faster.
Then, she had her little moments that I’m
going to skip. Let’s concentrate on the bigger ones like the attack on Konoha.
She helped a looot of injured ppl uncluding Hinata. If it wasn’t for Sakura,
Hinata would have died.
She even saved Karin and cried on her.
After that, war time, I don’t have to mention
that she again saved a lot of people and caugh the White Zetsu.
She also activated her seal and managed to do
some impressive work on defeating a lot of enemies.
She summoned Katsuyu and healed everyone on
the battlefield… quite the amount if you ask me…
Of course Naruto being one of them :))
She also pretty much helped Shikamaru, she
kept him alive and gave him chakra until Naruto recovered enough to give them
Oh c’mon, I don’t have to say that she saved
They say how she was super scared when she
encountered Madara. Then again, was Hinata going to be less scared? Or was she
going to do that..?
Distract him a little so Naruto and Sasuke can
think of sth. And look at her, she is enduring it, pushing the fear away and
doing everything in her powers to fight him.
It was thanks to her that Obito was able to
find Sasuke, otherwise, they were doomed…
And she also saved Obito. If it wasn’t for
her, the acid would have splashed him instead and … bye bye Obi~
If I remember correctly, Sasuke and Naruto
were just about to seal Kaguya away but it would have been another fail. If it
wasn’t for Sakura, Kaguya would have escaped them once again.
she also healed those two bakas when they
And what did Hinata do?
She did helped Naruto by protecting him from
Pain. But don’t take Naruto’s rage that deeply ok. He thought that she was dead
and she was his friend so it’s only normal to react like that. It would have
been Shikamaru or Kiba or someone else from his friends, he would have reacted
the same way.
And yes, she has the byakugan and is able to
do a lot of things thanks to it but what would have happened if she didn’t have
and what the hell is that? Make your own Ninja
Way girl, don’t copy Naruto’s
She is cute and compassionate and has decent power but some things I just can’t forgive about her character. Fuck Trollmoto tho…
I have to say that I do not hate Hinata but I at the same time I don’t like her that much. She had the potential to become more confident and strong individual but she was left submissive and with almost no confidence.
Now let’s pay some attention to the NaruSaku
and MinaKushi stuff. They say that Hinata is like Minato. Indeed the both of
them are on the quiet side but other than that what? Minato often throws jokes and he often smiles and grins and he tends to be a little goofy. He is also pretty smug when torturing Kakashi and Obito in their trainings and trying to make them work as a team. Hinata … errr….
Minato calms Kushina =
balance. When did Hinata calmed Naruto?
here??? (lets not mention how Neji was dead in her feet and she was thinking how warm Naruto’s hand was) *CRINGE*
I do know that it is war time and there isn’t that much time for grieving but she could have at least hugged Neji and told him “Thank you for always being there for me” or sth like that. At least a reaction like Rock Lee or TenTen would have been good but she just stood and watched…
And oh well, sorry to disappoint you but that
scene is kinda copied..
Say whatever you want but Kushina’s line stays
“Find someone like your mother”
And Minato considered Sakura as Naruto’s
girlfriend and stated how she was like Kushina. And Sakura and Minato actually worked together.
And they also share some similarities…
If we include the movies. Naruto was saved by
Sakura a lot of times. Like in Road to Ninja, she fought Obito/Menma.
The Blood Prison, she kept him alive enough
for Ryuuzetsu to help him.
And in The Last (which is the bullshit of the
bullshits) she was healing him and transfering chakra into him for days. She
saved his life again.
Even in Boruto the movie when they were attacked, she fought and evacuated the people. Later, healed them.
Including Hinata who instead of staying with her children in such dire situation, sprung to help Naruto only to be knocked out instantly and risking her own life against oponent she has NO chance at even scratching. (what would have happened if the enemy injured her more seriously or worse - killed her? the kids would have been without mother. She is too reckless.)
and that shit about Naruto loving her because
of the rivalry? Oh well, you still remember 235 ep right? He said how he fell
in love with her sweet smile and all those cheesy things. They shared so many
First thing he mutters is “Sakura-chan”
Unlike Hinata, who was placed in Sasuke’s
place in The Last. The moment when they were little and she “was with him
from day one” Sakura actually was with him when they were little (alongside Shikamaru, Kiba, Sasuke and Choji and even Ino. Yes, they weren’t playing that much but they still shared some moments. Hinata tho, Naruto just saved her once from some bullies…)
And lookie, we even have the red thread of
And let’s not forget how she cherished the
flower and blushed the whole time
All and all
And also not to mention that Naruto and Sakura
would have been not only like Minato and Kushina but also like Hashirama and
Mito. Hashirama is a sunny guy like Naruto and Mito is Uzumaki and all Uzumaki
are loud and
cheerful and energetic like Kushina (and
therefore Sakura). And we can also add Jiraiya and Tsunade, the way they acted
was the same way the other couples act. Even Rin and Obito are the same
(despite Rin being a little gentler) and Yaiko and Konan too. So this is going
on through generations, ever since the Warring Eras with Mito and Hashirama to
the other war stricken eras with Jiraiya and Tsunade, Konan and Yahiko to the
more modern era with Obito and Rin and Kushina and Minato to the peace era with
Naruto and Sakura.
And here is some amazing fanart, seriously
even if I wasn’t a NaruSaku fan, I would have still being able to notice those
things. Hinata is cute but she really isn’t that strong. If she wasn’t from the
noble clan she wouldn’t have been able to fend for herself. Sakura on the other
hand is not from such a clan but she manages to surpass Tsunade who is known as
the strongest woman. I’m a person who sticks to facts.
I hope you can agree with me…. :)) I myself want Kishimoto to fuck everyone and just write a special NaruSaku manga where they end up together… no more bullshits!!!
JUNE 8: Marcela and Elisa are secretly married (1901)
Spain celebrated its legalization of same-sex marriage on
June 30, 2005, but unbeknownst to many, the first real same-sex marriage in
Spain took place 104 years beforehand when a woman named Elisa Sanchez Loriga disguised
herself as a man and legally married her lover, Marcela Gracia Ibeas, on June 8,
Marcela and Elisa’s wedding photo shows Marcela (left) in traditional bridal attire and Elisa (right) disguised as a man (x).
Both Marcela and Elisa were elementary school teachers who
had met at college in A Coruña and their friendship eventually blossomed into a
romance. Marcela’s parents were unhappy with the candidness of the women’s
relationship and sent her to another college outside of A Coruña to finish her
studies; however, Marcela’s parents’ influence only lasted so long and once
Marcela and Elisa both finished college they settled down together in a village called
After living together for some time, Marcela and Elisa decided
that they wanted to get married, and so, they went to work devising a plan. In
order to trick their neighbors, Marcela and Elisa simulated a loud, angry fight
that resulted in Elisa moving back to A Coruña. Their families and community believed that the two had simply broken up and parted ways, but while
in A Coruña, Elisa was busy developing her new “male” identity. She cut her hair,
started wearing suits, took up smoking cigars, and tricked a priest into
baptizing her as a man named “Mario.” With her new identity assumed, Elisa moved back home and was legally married to Marcela on June 8, 1901 in the Church of St. Jorge in A Coruña.
Unfortunately, the honeymoon stage didn’t last long. Marcela
and Elisa’s neighbors became suspicious of this strange new man named “Mario”
whose appearance and voice were both creepily similar to Elisa’s. One of their
neighbors leaked the story of their “marriage without man” to local newspapers
and it broke out into a nationwide scandal. Marcela and Elisa both lost their
jobs, were excommunicated from the Church, and were issued arrest warrants. The
last that is known of the married couple is that they were able to escape local
authorities by boarding a ship that was destined for Argentina and never
returned. To this day, the marriage of Marcela and Elisa has never been
annulled by either the Catholic Church or the Civil Registry and they are still
considered to be the first same-sex couple to be legally married in Spain.
-When Harley told her Puddin she was pregnant, he was not happy. He actully growled at her to get rid of it. She got so mad at his request she walked out on him, and planned on never talking to him again.
-He had completely forgotten about Harley’s reasoning for leaving, convinced she left to be with another man. That was until the day you were born, when she broke her own promise and sent him on picture of you, sleeping in the nursery.
-It was love at first sight, and he immediately got in the lambo, speeding to the hospital, and shooting anyone who tried to stop him as he advanced towards the nursery. When he saw you laying there, he broke the glass, took you in his arms and left. He later texted Harley telling her to meet him at the condo they once shared. She was there in 15 minutes.
-Harley was pissed that he took you, but when she saw him cradling you in his arms, looking at you with nothing but affection, all the anger melted away.
-When you were little the duo went on less crime sprees, the dirty work was mostly left for the henchmen to do, with one of the two attending every once in a while. However it wasn’t until you were 17 that they went back to their normal routines of mischief.
-You were Daddy’s little monster, no matter what you wanted Joker always tried to get it for you, he even took you to the park once a week.
-You were Mommy’s little vexor. You defiantly had her tongue, and sense of humor. Her proudest moment was when you were six and scared a girl in your class by saying, “The voice told me to ruin your tower, since you stole my crayons.”
-Most of the staff at the school knew who your parents were, and not to mess with either of them. So most of the stuff you did was overlooked, and you always got good grades (Which you did earn, since you were one of the smartest kids in the class)
-When Harley and Joker would fight, Joker would lock you in your room. They would scream and throw shit and sometimes one of them would leave. You would be sitting on your bed and listening to everything, until one of them (Normally Harley) opened the door, and scooped you into her lap to wipe your tears.
-Harley tried to leave with you once after a fight, you just remember seeing broken dishes on the floor, holes in the wall from gun fire, and punches, the whole house was a mess. When Joker saw her carrying you out though he sharply hissed, “Oh no no no Kitten, you aren’t taking my princess.”
“Oh no Mr. J I am, and you will leave us alone.” And then Harley ran from the condo, hot wired a car and drove you both to a hotel in a neighboring town.
-Of course Joker came looking for you both, and it was agreed after that fight, that he would be the one leaving the house if it got that bad, and Harley would stay home with you. He didn’t like the idea of an emotional Harley taking you into the dangers of Gotham without protection
-Your mother used to tell you the story of her falling in love with Joker as a bed time story sometimes. She told it as different characters, like sometimes they were royalty, other times mythical gods, but it was always the same plot.
-Your Father told you tales of his crimes for bed, sparing no detail from them. He left nothing out, and enjoyed how when he talked about killing people your eyes would light up slightly. He also told you his adventures with Batman, but those were only told when Harley was in the room with him. (His bedtime stories were your little secrets)
-Everyone in your school was scared to be friends with you, mostly because you were the princess of Gotham, and everyone knew that your parents would not hesitate killing them if they didn’t like the kid, or hurt you.
-When he shared this with you, you decked him. The impact of your fist to his face left a bruise over his eye, then proceeded to bruise, cut and bloody the rest of his face. You went home that day with bruised knuckles, an attitude, and a 3 day suspension. Joker had never been prouder.
-You wore the shortest, most low cut dress to your prom, courtesy of Harley, who also did your makeup and hair. Joker protested at first however you interjected, “My father is the most scary man in Gotham, trust me, no boy, or girl or professor wants to fuck with me.”
-Just to ease his fears, you hid a small pistol in your bra. Harley laughing slightly when you pulled the small weapon from your black lace bra.
-You once told Joker you hated him while arguing. He was so offended he left the house for three weeks. When he came back you ran into his arms, tears running down your face as you apologized. He forgave you
-You always had quiet nights in on your birthday, even though Joker always wanted to throw you the largest parties.
-Most times you would retire the normal action movie for a comedy movie, and the condo would quickly fill with the evil laughter of all three of you.
-Joker would still carry you to bed if you were to fall asleep on the couch, or in their bed, even when you were a teenager. He also would tuck you in and when you woke up, you always found a red lipstick shape on your head. It was proof of the rare affection your father would show.
-Harley always let you dye your hair crazy colors, and she would do your makeup and nails whenever she had free time.
-When you were 17 you became the new villain of Gotham. Of course your parents had no idea, and you never planned on them finding out.
-That was until your father ran into you while on a heist. His normal smile feel as he growled deeper then he ever had, “Car…now”
-When you got home your father called for Harley and told her everything. Harley just smiled and gave you a high five, for keeping up the family name. Joker was furious.
-So he accepted the fact that you were now a villain, and soon started inviting you on his heist,
-Even though both of your parents were certifiably insane, and the most wanted couple in Gotham, you would have wanted no one else in the city to be your parents.
For @nexiumkreeth…reader is female as requested. Enjoy! (honestly, i’m good with writing anything that means Fred lives)
Y/N sprinted through the massive castle that was Hogwarts. She cast spells as she ran in an attempt to help anyone she could. Spotting Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny, Y/N skid to a halt. A few dementors were heading toward the four. Without hesitation, Y/N sent her patronus after the soul-suckers.
Both Weasleys gave a nod of appreciation. Y/N turned back to the battle at hand. She shot stun spells at anything that was black and moving through the air. She glanced over her shoulder to see the four had dispersed. Seeing no one in desperate need, Y/N picked up her pace, starting to run again.
Y/N conjured her patronus once again. She led the creature with her wand, pushing away the darkest threats. Hogwarts was the only place that had ever felt like home to her. She’d be damned if she didn’t try and protect it.
The witch finally made it outside on a balcony. Her patronus lunged at a dementor that hung a little too close. The faceless beast moved away with a horrid screech. Y/N looked down the balcony, eyes widening. The Weasley twins were fighting side by side. It seemed like Fred was pushing George inside as a black ashy beam headed in their direction. Y/N could just barely make out the colored sparks coming from the moving Death Eater.
Without hesitation, Y/N raised her wand and pointed. Before she could get the words out, the shield spell she desired shot from her wand and in front of Fred. This effectively blocked the spell from hitting the Weasley. Her protective nature taking over, Y/N hopped onto the balcony rail and started shooting more powerful spells toward the Death Eater. This didn’t allow her to see Fred’s stunned face as she fought the man.
“Arresto momentum!” she shrieked, slowing him down, “Confringo!”
The Death Eater she had been facing burst into flames. Y/N turned slightly to see George pulling Fred into the castle. She smiled to herself, happy that he was safe. She shook her head, refocusing on the battle.
Once Upon a Time's Jennifer Morrison on Emma Swan's swan song
Warning: This story contains major spoilers from the season finale of Once Upon a Time. Read at your own risk!
The Savior made the ultimate sacrifice during the Once Upon a Time season finale.
After the new curse left Emma (Jennifer Morrison) with no memories in a Storybrooke run by the Black Fairy (Jaime Murray), the ABC fairy tale drama came full circle as Henry (Jared Gilmore) was forced to once again try to get Emma to believe. Her family and friends, meanwhile, were sent back to Fairy Tale Land, where all the realms began to crumble at the Savior’s lack of belief.
Though Gold (Robert Carlyle) ultimately killed the Black Fairy, breaking the curse, the Final Battle was not abated — the Black Fairy had ordered Gideon (Giles Matthey) to kill Emma, who refused to murder an innocent, thus she sacrificed herself. Fortunately, her son Henry’s kiss resurrected her, leading to what appears to be a happily ever after alongside her family as Morrison exits the drama after six seasons. (Read part 1 of our interview with Morrison here.)
“I’ve always wished for Emma’s happy ending,” Morrison tells EW. “As the woman who plays Emma — and even as a fan of the show — of course my heart’s desire is for Emma’s happy ending. I don’t think there was ever any part of me that was wishing for her death. I just always wanted to have an end to her story, at least in what we’ve seen so far, be something that was a fresh start, a new start for her, her facing life with new possibilities, with her walls down, with growth behind her.”
Unfortunately, our heroes are all missing in action sometime in the future, where — in a scene that echoes the pilot — an adult Henry’s (Andrew J. West) supposed daughter (Alison Fernandez) comes to him with a storybook, exclaiming Henry’s family needs his help. “I’m excited to see what this means,” Morrison says. “I love this idea that they’re rebooting it with the future Henry. I think that gives them a lot of room to do really fun things in the story line. The way that we jump around, and leap through time, and go between lands, it sets them up to have endless possibilities for the show to continue with really interesting and creative possibilities.”
While Morrison is exiting, Colin O’Donoghue will continue on with the show next season, as OUAT reframes around his character Hook, as well as Regina (Lana Parrilla) and Rumple (Robert Carlyle) — see who else is exiting here. While Morrison is slated to return for one episode next year, ostensibly her story will somehow continue on through Hook and adult Henry. “I have no idea how they’re planning on doing that,” Morrison says. “I don’t know what the pitch is for the one episode that I’m doing. I’ve always blindly had faith in them having great plans for those things, so I’m excited to see how they choose to set that up. I’m very happy for Colin continuing on the show, and I’m sure they’ll find a creative way to make it work.”
Some Thoughts: Navy, the Ruby Squad, and what it holds for the Crystal Gems
Anonymous said: If you’ve seem “Room For Ruby”, what are your your thoughts on Navy now?
Now that we know the whole truth, it’s debatable whether Steven was copying Navy’s mannerisms–
or Navy was copying Steven’s.
In fact, now that we know the whole truth, it’s a little difficult not to put context into the things Navy was saying.
“All the other Rubies are mean to me. I just want to be somewhere where I can be myself.”
“It’s almost like, it’s always changing!”
In hindsight, it’s worth noting that these words are exactly what the Crystal Gems would have wanted to hear from her: Earth as a place where things can change, where gems can grow and be who they want to be. I raised an eyebrow when she talked about the other Rubies’ being mean to her because when we analyse their dynamics it seems rather farfetched that Navy would declare she felt this way.
To me, this indicates there’s more than meets the eye in this episode. A lot of moments felt very discordant with how we expected things to play out, not only with Navy, but also with the Crystal Gems and how they were acting.
I think this episode holds some implications for how the Ruby Squad operates as well as what it’ll be like when we see the Rubies next time. Given that, let’s get to it.
1. We don’t give the Rubies enough credit
When last we saw them, the Ruby Squad, they were almost successfully ambling towards each other in Adventures in Light Distortion. That means upon getting tossed into outer space, they individually decided that they had to get back to one another.
In Room for Ruby, we find out that all along, Navy’s goal was to get back the Ruby Ship. Somewhere up in space, either she or the Squad put together a plan with several contingencies. And getting their ship back is a smart move for the Rubies because they’re currently adrift in space with no means of propulsion. Getting the ship back would be the fastest way to reconvene and regroup.
At the heart of it, we can’t forget that Rubies are soldiers. That means they’re trained to survive in the most chaotic circumstances. In those moments, it’s doubtful that another gem will be present and serving as commander, which is why it’s significant that Doc is the clear-cut leader.
Meanwhile, it’s become a bit of an inside joke that nobody trusts Rubies to do anything right in the show, everyone says as much, “Man, Rubies are dumb.” It’s odd then that the exact opposite is being done. Rubies are trusted with their own missions. If they weren’t to be trusted at all, then another gem would be coming along to supervise.
It’s believable that a single Ruby could serve as guard to a gem as rare and important as Sapphire, both in The Answer, and even in the modern Gem Heist. In both cases, there is no other gem making sure the Rubies get the job done.
These instances stand in sharp contrast to Holly Blue’s role in the lives of the Famethyst, gems perceived to be of much higher standing than Rubies. Their being Earth gems plays a factor in this infantilisation, but the Rubies aren’t just innocuous foot soldiers either.
As mentioned, they’re trained to survive, and that requires a certain degree of autonomy and resourcefulness, training and preparing. Homeworld trusts them to go on missions successfully, and it’s no surprise that the Rubies expected to successfully complete their Earth mission.
Rubies aren’t innocuous. Eyeball knew exactly how to approach meeting Rose Quartz; she went for the kill the moment it was confirmed. Navy planned exactly how to deceive the Crystal Gems.
That Garnet saw it as a possibility prior to the end of the episode means hearkens back to how her future vision works. Garnet explores paths that she feels are within the realm of plausibility. That’s why she didn’t see Pearl’s deception in Cry for Help, because she found the idea too implausible to entertain and explore. But Garnet herself said “Not all of them” in response to the idea that “Rubies are dumb.” She would know firsthand that there’s more to a Ruby than the bumbling outer appearance.
While I don’t think “monotone” was the most accurate way to describe Garnet’s reaction when she realised Navy deceived all of them, I do agree that there seemed to be a lack of concern now that a potentially dangerous group of gems now has access to a reality-bending ship.
It appears she is either running through some possibilities or she doesn’t see this as a huge setback or threat for the CGs. These aren’t mutually exclusive, but that they aren’t jumping to action could also be indicative of their knowing that they don’t have the resources to go after said reality-bending ship. Garnet isn’t the type to openly worry, and from her standpoint, there is nothing they can do, unless at one point someone placed a tracking device on the ship. So worrying wouldn’t have done anything and preparations for the future don’t have to be done immediately.
And I feel that fits in perfectly with the theme of the show, which always says not to judge or presume things about other individuals. It was easy to label the Rubies as adorable and ‘smol’ and therefore harmless; just as it was initially easy for many to paint Jasper as filled with bloodlust. It’s consistent that the Rubies, initially portrayed as comic relief in Hit the Diamond, would have a lot more going underneath.
They are a cohesive unit that trusts one another and trains future Rubies. Earth wasn’t their first mission and they’re determined not to make it their last. They have all the skills a resource-deprived civilisation can equip them with so that more resources aren’t wasted. And I’ll be talking about those special set of skills next.
2. Room for Ruby emphasises differentiation among the members of the Ruby Squad
Once Upon a Time's Ginnifer Goodwin on Snow and Charming's 'bittersweet' goodbye
Snow White and Prince Charming got their happy ending after all.
During Once Upon a Time‘s season finale, the future looked grim for everyone. The Black Fairy had unleashed a curse that separated a now memory-wiped Emma (Jennifer Morrison) from her family, who were sent back to the Enchanted Forest as the realms began to crumble at Emma’s lack of belief in fairy tale characters.
As the curse overtook the Enchanted Forest, Charming (Josh Dallas) nearly died climbing back down a beanstalk with Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), but Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) found him and — in a scene echoing their true love’s kiss from the pilot — was able to revive him with a smooch.
Ultimately, Rumple (Robert Carlyle) killed the Black Fairy, while Emma sacrificed herself to prevent Gideon from turning dark. Echoing the climax of the season 1 finale, Henry’s kiss resurrected Emma, and the storybook ended, making the heroes realize they get their happily ever after. For Snow and Charming that meant living in Storybrooke, with Snow back to teaching and her family all together. Even though the heroes are missing in action when an adult Henry’s (Andrew J. West) daughter Lucy (Alison Fernandez) tracks him down 10 years in the future, for now, the Charmings have their happy ending.
The finale comes in the wake of the news that Goodwin, along with Dallas, Morrison, Emilie de Ravin, Jared Gilmore and Rebecca Mader, will not be returning to Once Upon a Time as series regulars next season. In an email interview, Goodwin exclusively tells EW about the impetus behind her — and real-life husband Dallas’ — exit.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What came with the decision to leave Once Upon a Time? GINNIFER GOODWIN: What came with the bittersweet decision to give these characters a happy ending — and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect for that — is room for a new story to grow and flourish as Snow and Charming’s did.
What was that conversation like with Josh when you guys were deciding this would be your final season? “Hey, let’s call Eddy and Adam to talk about where our very special arc is headed.” — Ginny “What a wonderful notion, Ginny. You have EXTRAORDINARY ideas! And have I told you lately that you’re ALWAYS right?” — Josh
How do you feel about how the story ends for Snow and Charming? Selfishly, I’m pleased as punch. They got exactly what they wanted: dramatic, epic love balanced with normalcy (Snow’s word) and the space to indulge in both. Actually, it’s not an “end.” The final chapter of this story line is a continuation… which is kind of Snow’s own point in the finale.
Would you return in the future — either next season or for whatever ends up being the series finale? In keeping with the aforementioned continuation-as-happy-ending, OF COURSE I (and we) will be back. It’s merely time for ONCE to focus on something new because ONCE does “new” extremely well.
When you look back at your time playing Snow, is there anything in particular you’re proud of, a moment that will stick with you? I’m most proud of taking the job in the first place. That pilot was so refreshing and inventive and not-done, which could have been a recipe for disaster. But I took the plunge and was rewarded immeasurably. And as for moments, everything about “Snow Falls,” in which the Charmings fell in love, will stick with me. And I won’t ever forget sitting on a Neverland log with Emma, who found herself by admitting to herself that she was a Lost Boy. I also won’t let go of the scene in which Regina first ripped out Mary Margaret’s heart and then put the thing back in again, all while standing at Regina’s front door.
Do you have any regrets? Anything you wish you had done differently? Anything you’re glad to give up? I wish I hadn’t been so hard on myself when I had trouble concentrating at work after having my first baby and learning what it is to be up all night… forever. As for wishing I had made different ACTING choices: Oh yes, all the time, and that’ll probably never change.
How do you think Snow has changed over the years? I think she let more and more of Mary Margaret in.
How do you think you’ve grown and changed during the run of the show? I’ve learned and learned and learned as an actress and teammate. And, I mean, look at my life! Over the run of this show, I met Prince Charming, fell in love, got married, and had two babies. It doesn’t get better than that.
How did it feel returning to the pilot in many ways, shooting Snow and Charming’s true love’s kiss, but in reverse? Since I’m so nostalgic about the pilot, it was a gift. And in true ONCEfashion, the narrative was twisty-turny, which was invigorating and fun. And after that many episodes, “fun” is an exception to the general rule.
What’s next for you? I’m performing in the play Constellations at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles. It’s one of, if not THE, most challenging, demanding role I’ve ever tackled and I’m doing it live, so I’m shaking in my freaking boots, which is AWESOME. I’m completely infatuated with the writing. I adore everyone involved — ridiculously talented Allen Leech costars — I try not to fangirl out over the Downton of it all— and I’m director-crushing on Giovanna Sardelli. I’d been obsessing over a homesickness for theatre when this came into my life (which is all very ONCE UPON A TIME.)
What would you like to say to the fans who have followed you on this journey? Thank you.
It had been about three days since
that morning and things had resumed between you and Bucky like nothing had
happened. Which, was probably for the best. It’s not wise to go poking the
beast. You needed this job and you weren’t willing to risk it by bring up what
16-year-old Sylvia Likens was the daughter of two carnival workers. Her parents separated, and her mother, Betty, was incarcerated for shoplifting. As a result, Sylvia and her sister, Jenny, were sent to live with Gertrude
Baniszwewski and her family, paying them $20 to take care of the two girls. When the payments were late, Baniszwewski would turn on the girls, particularly Sylvia. She would hit the girls with paddles. Being fragile and asthmatic herself,
Baniszwewski recruited her children and neighbourhood children to subject Sylvia to horrendous abuse over the period of three months. This abuse included putting cigarettes out on her skin, burning her with scalding water, beating her, rubbing salt in her wounds, forcing her to eat things which would cause her to vomit and on at least two occasions, she was raped with a Coca-Cola bottle. On one occasion, a neighbourhood boy, Coy Hubbard, used her to practice his judo, which as a result, caused her to become incontinent. Baniszwewski responded to this by forcing her to eat her own faeces as well as her 1-year-old sons. Jenny, Sylvia’s sister attempted to get help and contacted their older sister, Diana, who came to the house yet did nothing to help.
Shortly before her death, Baniszewski took a hot needle and carved “I’m a prostitute and proud of it!” on Sylvia’s stomach. A neighbourhood boy, Richard Hobbs, helped. He also helped 10-year-old Shirley Baniszewski burn the number “3” into her chest with an iron poker. The night before Sylvia died, she attempted to escape the house of horrors. She was caught by Baniszewski who threw her down the stairs into the cellar which had become her home. The next day, on October 26, 1965, Sylvia’s body gave up after the countless beatings, burnings, rapes, and lack of food and water. She died of a brain haemorrhage, shock, and malnutrition.
She had suffered unimaginable torment.
Her body was covered in wounds, bruises, and burns. In her final moments, she had almost completely severed her lips with her teeth from the beatings.
Gertrude received a life sentence while the younger assailants received petty sentences and were all released and went on to lead normal lives, something Sylvia could never do. Disgustingly enough, Gertrude was released for good behaviour after just a measly fourteen years in prison.
