what a nice reminder

Pidge is a she/her (Be nice)

Quick reminder to all the voltron peoples who keep using different pronouns for Pidge/Katie besides she/her, Pidge literally announced to everyone that she was a girl, it’s a canon thing. Don’t get me wrong, you can write her anyway you want to, but she’s canonically a girl, so don’t get mad when people use she/her pronouns. Another thing though, don’t hate on someone because they use other pronouns besides she/her for Pidge. The can do them, you can do you. Chill. Just respecting what someone believes in/says isn’t the same thing as agreeing with it. Keep that in mind.

ive been reminded that its canon that chikariko, despite being actual neighbors and can literally just go to their balconies to talk to each other face to face, call each other on their phones and just talk to each other for So Long that chika’s battery dies

Hey guys!

So the spoilers and talk about the future and all the uncertainty is kind of sending me off the path of righteousness. I’m trying to keep the positivity train a-rollin’ of course, but it’s tough at times! So tomorrow can we lay off the ‘what if this bad thing happens’ in my ask box and veer it towards nice things? Either nice things that can happen in the future, or nice things that have already happened. I’m not fussed. But my inbox is a hotbed of almost-depressing things right now, and it’s bringing me down a bit!

Retirement!lock headcanon 

So they move to the cottage in Sussex and John knows they need a car, nothing fancy but something that will get them to town and to visit Sherlock’s parents and maybe to London every once in a while. Sherlock puts on a bit of a to do about it and says they should just let Mycroft take care of it and John says no in no short terms. He will not have one of Mycroft company cars, he wants something that they picked out together, something that’s theirs. Well after fussing which they both know is all a show, they wonder into the local car lot in town after dinner one night and a nice walk. John reminding him what they are there for and to be nice, not to badger everyone there. Sherlock nods his head and smirks like he can’t believe John would believe this is how this would go after all these years.

It takes about 20 minutes to walk to town and approximately 10 minutes to walk through the entire lot and for Sherlock to declare they will not be purchasing their car here. John looks at him and rubs his hands down his face and turns to the receptionist. “Give us a moment please.” He strides over to Sherlock. “What the hell are you doing!?" 

"Saving us trouble. See those four cars?” He points to the nicest four. “Well the receptionist and her boss are shagging in them and even though the cleaner does a good job, it’s not quite well enough, well for me anyway to pick up on.” John rolled his eyes. What else?“ Sherlock points out five others. Odometers turned back to raise the price and the rest have all various kind of shoddy body work done made to it look brand new.” John walked away and for once had to agree with Sherlock. Definitely not buying a car here. He thanked the receptionist for her time and said they’d be in touch and then grabbed his husband’s hand for a calming walk home under the stars.

“You know even after all these years you amaze me and still turn me on.”

“Wait till we get home.” he smiles as he pulls John closer and wraps an arm tighter around him.

I’m not crying you’re crying!

Hey. All you cool, creative people: you should never stop writing/painting/sewing/singing/whatever because you think it’s not good enough. The world needs your art, and above it all, YOU need your art.

My favourite thing to remember is that art isn’t one time use. When you make a piece of art, if it turns out in a way you don’t like, you can reuse the idea and try to make it better the second time. So don’t stop doing art because you think you’re ‘messing up the idea’ or that you 'just can’t do it right’ or that 'it’s not good enough,’ because you’ll never make it good and you’ll never do it right unless you DO IT, and you can change it and redo it as many times as you want. (PS, a secret: Art isn’t always about doing it “right”, anyway!)

I LOOK FORWARD TO TALKING TO YOU.
(you slipped  underneath the sleeves of my sweater like the first cool breeze of october, and i can’t remember the last time someone’s touch left goosebumps on my skin. these soft pin pricks remind me that i’m alive.)

YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL.
(i want to kiss you just to see if you taste like the colors of the autumn sky because that’s what you remind me of.)

IT WAS NICE SEEING YOU TODAY.
(your arms feel like moonlight holding the crashing tide part of me together, something strong and inimitable like gravity and i’m reminded again why this is called falling.)

HELLO.
(i want you. that’s what this all comes down to, and i’m sorry but i tried to ignore it, i really did. my days consist of sleepless nights and 4 am mornings and my brain is a screaming limbo of lost time. but somehow you planted seeds in my heart and grew inside me like a rose bush defying all logic and that’s the entire point of this isn’t it ? the thorns prick my lungs but the smell of your smile hides the bleeding. and i’m okay with that. i really am.)

The Shack (2017)

This movie was great to see.  I laughed.  I cried.  I was in awe of how some of the most “meaty” conversations I had ever read were made condensed.  The way the conversations happened between Mackenzie and Papa were relational.  I found myself taking mental notes.  For me, watching Sam Worthington is like watching Kneau Reeves.  I know I will get a decent performance, but I am not going to look for those emotional, gut-wrenching “wow” moments.  In this movie, I could understand a parent’s pain.  I was unsure about the changes from the book and movie.  But, the changes worked to move the movie along.  Even with the condensing, the movie was still 2 Hours and 12 minutes.  It didn’t seem like it. I could have watched more scenes with Octavia Spencer.

In a time when we are unsure about what will be, it’s nice to have a gentle and beautiful reminder that we have to live in the present.  It’s nice to be reminded that we are love.  Life doesn’t happen in the past.  We can’t possibly predict our future.

I would suggest this movie to everyone, regardless of where you are in your “faith walk”.

FUN FACT BUT while we dont talk as muhc anymore u were the first person to ever put me on their friends page and it !!! made me feel ery included on tumblr like a year ago or what it was. youre so nice and thoughtful and you remind me a lot of myself in a  weird way?? im still sad i didnt tell you happy birthday a few months ago, it would have been so cool since me telling u happy bday last yr sorta started our interactions. you were the one who made me welcome in the rp community (even if i dont rp anymore sorry haha) and i general i am just…veyr grateful to you, and i love you <3

MTVS Epic Rewatch #115

BTVS 5x01 Buffy vs Dracula

Stray thoughts

1) Buffy vs Dracula might not make it into any “best of BTVS” lists, but it’s a fun episode and it works as a season opener: it sets up some of the narrative that will drive this season (Buffy’s search for her identity as a slayer, Giles struggle to reconcile his personal needs with his desire to continue mentoring Buffy, Riley’s insecurities and feelings of inadequacy) and of course it ends with - dare I say - one of the best cliffhangers to have ever cliffhanged (that’s a word I’ve made up.) But more on that later. 

2) I really love the opening scene in this episode. Buffy wakes up with an itch only a good slaying can scratch. So slaying she goes. Or shall we say hunting? And then she’s finally able to fall asleep. There’s no dialogue, but it very nicely sums up what Buffy is about. It’s also a nice reminder of how far she’s come since Welcome to the Hellmouth. Slayerness had always been a burden for Buffy, something she wanted to get away from but always felt she was pulled back into. In a lot of ways, it would always be a burden. But it’s also a part of her identity. She’s starting to embrace her slayerness, and it’s beautiful.

3) My favorite Riley scene, tbh.

4) So Willow started a fire with magic and created a storm… Hm, I wonder what’s the subliminal message regarding the consequences of her use of magic…

5) I love Giles’s die-hard hatred towards technology.

Obstinate bloody machine simply refused to work for me.

6) And then this moment…

GILES: That’s what I’m trying to do, actually, is, um, get a life. (…)  You see, I’m, I’m going back to England. (…)  Well, it’s become quite obvious that Buffy doesn’t need me. I don’t say that in a self-pitying way, I’m quite proud, actually.

He’s genuinely sincere when he says he’s proud of the fact Buffy doesn’t need him anymore. I think, however, the reason he so quickly agreed to Buffy’s request later on is because, regardless of how proud he was of her, he desperately wanted to feel needed and validated. He’d been a watcher for a long time and now that he hadn’t been one in quite a while, he no longer knew who he was or what he was supposed to do with his life. I think the thought of moving on frightened him because his future was so uncertain. Again, it’s a question of identity. (I know, I know, I’m always talking about this.) Falling back into the role of watcher was easy, comfortable, something he knew he was good at and something that gave meaning to his life. Buffy basically gave him an easy way out. But it just meant he was just postponing the inevitable…

7) This is the scene @etraytin mentioned when someone asked me whether the end of the episode was the moment when the monk’s spell kicked in. Buffy and Joyce are clearly having dinner alone - the table is set for two.

More importantly, there’s this line which clearly proves Dawn wasn’t anywhere around yet…

JOYCE: You know, I’m gonna have to get used to this place without you again. It gets so quiet.

If the spell had already been already working, Joyce wouldn’t have been worried about the house getting quiet without Buffy (we know Dawn was quite loud at the beginning…)

8) So, when Dracula showed himself and said “Such power”, this is all I could think about…

THANK YOU TUMBLR. YOU’VE RUINED ME.

A question for science: who would you have liked to play Dracula instead of this dude? (who apparently made a Dracula movie the same year he was on Buffy…) He wasn’t that bad, but he wasn’t great. And if you’re going to have Dracula show up in a vampire show, he’d better be great. (On that note, I’m really glad Freddie didn’t end up playing Dracula on this episode. I truly think he couldn’t have pulled it of…)
