what i would give to see them live

The thing that really made me not hate TFP like I wanted to was the Molly Scene™.

Like??? That was such a big moment for Sherlock? No matter your ship persuasion (Sherlolly/Johnlock/etc), I don’t see how people don’t see what a MASSIVE step this was?

He had to stand there and save her. Usually, this would something Sherlock would relish, right? The ability to be the hero? The ‘drama queen’? But, this time, you can see the dread in him, when he sees the ‘I love you’ and knows it involves Molly. The take Eurus gives him means he can’t use his brain to save her, he has to use his emotions. He has to tell her loves her. He has to tell another living soul - a living soul he knows loves him with everything and has very little else - that he loves them.

Yes, the task was only to get Molly to say 'I love you’ to HIM but Sherlock KNEW that the only way he could possibly get her to say it would be to say it first… despite the fact it would be the most alien and most difficult thing for him to do?
Not only does he do it, but he says it twice. He doesn’t think his first try is good enough. Poor Molly suffers but manages a reply, but it was plain to every single one of us, Sherlock included, what SUFFERING it was.

And unlike before, unlike when he could happily tell himself he was detached and sociopathic and that was that, he couldn’t say it and not feel the weight of it. He can’t pull a Janine™ anymore… and doesn’t that say something a incredibly MASSIVE about how far he’s come???

Yes, perhaps it’s because it’s Molly - (“I’m not trying to mock you. We’re friends. You’re my FRIEND!”) - but perhaps, just perhaps, Eurus, in making him do this, woke him up to all the 'emotional context’ of his entire life.

He realised he does have the capacity to feel, but that he’s been broken by the actions of his sister; scarred, I suppose. He’s opened the floodgates now though; “Once you open your heart you can’t close it again,” so, he can’t hold in his rage and guilt (and coffin destroying) that ensures afterward; because he’s angry he’s broken, angry and despaired at the situation… but mostly utterly despairing that he had to make Molly suffer, AGAIN… and this time, he felt every single, painful shard of it.

Once upon a time, he hurt Molly on a whim, almost for fun, and would be completely ignorant to it. Now? Well, the change is pretty fucking astounding. Therefore, I would happily label this the most important scene of the episode. It just… says so much with so little?.

Today I am 35.

When I was younger, I expected a lot of things about “growing up” and becoming “an adult”. I don’t think I could have ever anticipated the bizarre state I exist in now. Some things have gone better for me, others worse. I’m not as far as I want to be, but probably further than I give myself credit for. Overall, I consider myself fortunate to be where I am.

I play videogames for a job. I have an anxiety disorder. I live back in my home town, near my family, with my girlfriend who I met through Desert Bus. I’ve put on a lot of pounds and beard hairs. People on the internet message me frequently to say they love what I do, that I helped them carry on in bleak times. I see a therapist who helps me believe them. I’ve sunk to the depth of thinking I would never be happy again, and risen to the height of being front and center to $2m lifetime for charity. I’m unsatisfied but hopeful. Held back but forging ahead. Nothing ever goes right for me yet I am the luckiest man alive. 

This life of mine powerfully doesn’t make sense to me, enough so that sometimes all I can do is laugh. And here’s hoping you’ll all laugh with me.

So what do I want for my birthday? The truth is that I have more games than I can possibly play, more magic cards than I can build decks with, more comics than I can read. And I very much appreciate the patronage and donations of my fans, but what I really want is something very simple and very challenging.

Be good to one another. Mend bridges, take the high road into the future, be the better people that the world sorely needs right now, that it always has needed. The internet has become a very polarized place where oaths of loyalty are sworn, battle lines are drawn and war is waged. So rather than fuel the fire that threatens to burn us all, set an example for why it doesn’t have to be that way. 

It won’t be easy, but it will be very worthwhile. I believe in you.

Like, Phichit is yuuris best friend, they text all the time, used to live together, know tons about each other and even cared enough to learn each other language. With culture difference and yuuris general shying away from other people it could be interpreted as flirty. I wanted to see how you think victor would react if he was to get jealous of them. Like hearing or seeing them talking about something they did togather and really enjoying it or something. Sorry I hope that's a little better.

Yes, this helps me a lot! I asked for clarification so I could give you exactly what you wanted. I actually love this prompt, since I totally see Viktor being the jealous type~ And Yuri and Phichit’s friendship is so beautiful; it needs appreciation. I hope you enjoy! Thank you for the request! :) ((I apologize if the Thai language I use in here is incorrect; I only speak English and I used google translate to help))


Viktor crosses his arms and pouts at the scene unfolding before him. Yuri lays in bed with his phone inches from his smiling face, probably texting that Phichit boy. Viktor doesn’t understand; isn’t he the one that should be making Yuri smile like that? It’s his job, not Phichit’s.

This isn’t the first time Viktor has felt this strange aggression toward’s Yuri’s friend; the feeling springs up at the slightest mention of Phichit, in fact. Everything seems to be Phichit this, Phichit that lately.

Just last month at a skating competition, Phichit basically invited himself to share a meal with Viktor and Yuri. Viktor allowed it just to be friendly, but there was something so rude about just inviting yourself to your best friend’s date. And the worst part is, Phichit was hogging Yuri’s conversation the whole time.

“Remember when we were roommates in Detroit, and one of my hamsters crawled on your head while you were sleeping?” Phichit said between fits of laughter. “You nearly wet the bed from being so scared when you woke up!” Yuri blushed at the embarrassing story, dying from the fact that the love of his life was listening.

“Yeah, that was pretty funny, huh?” Yuri replied sheepishly. “We’ve had a lot of good times together, Phichit.”

“Too many good times; it’s all I’ve been hearing about,”  Viktor muttered under his breath and crossed his arms.

“Viktor? Did you say something?” Phichit asked once his fit of laughter seized. Viktor shook his head and continued eating, choosing to ignore the two.

Then, a week ago at a joint skating practice, Phichit and Yuri were goofing around the entire time, and Viktor wasn’t having it. The two were talking a ton during warm-ups, and they weren’t speaking English.

“Kār pt̩ibạti chèn nī̂ pĕn pị dị̂ fị!” Phichit chirped, and it came off as flirtatious to Viktor. Yuri began laughing and nodding at whatever Phichit said, and Viktor felt something begin to burn in his chest. He felt angry, and he could barely contain it. He hated that they knew each others’ languages, and could communicate without him knowing a single bit of what they were saying.

Once they were on the ice, the playfulness the two best friends were exhibiting did not cease. Yuri and Phichit skated around together and pretended to ballroom dance; it resembled something like a pair skating routine. The pair was giggling and laughing, and it echoed in Viktor’s brain, taunting him.

Phichit said something in Japanese to Yuri, something Viktor didn’t understand. Whatever it was caused Yuri to throw his arms around Phichit’s neck in a tight hug, laughing.

Something inside Viktor snapped, and his head felt like it was going to explode.

“Both of you! Knock it off!” Viktor yelled from his place outside the rink. Silence settled inside of the rink, and the stares from the two skaters burned into him. “Enough screwing around. It’s time to work.”

The rest of the practice was awkward, and Viktor felt somewhat guilty for his outburst.

And now they’re here, Yuri is glued to his phone and talking to the boy who infuriates Viktor.

“Vitya, what’s the matter?” Yuri’s voice brings Viktor out of his thought-induced haze and brings him to the present. “You look upset.”

“I-It’s nothing,” Viktor lies with a fake smile. Yuri doesn’t seem to be convinced and gives him a quizzical look.

“Whatcha thinking about? What’s on your mind?” Yuri gets up from the bed and abandons his phone in the sheets. Viktor feels better knowing that his attention is undivided, and Phichit is no longer on Yuri’s mind for the time being.

“You really like that Phichit Chulanont boy, don’t you?” Viktor says quietly, letting out a nervous chuckle. “You talk to him all the time. It’s almost like you want to skate with him more than you want to skate with me.”

To Viktor’s surprise, Yuri begins laughing. Hard.

“Don’t laugh, Yuri!” Viktor whines, pouting. He feels his cheeks flush red from embarrassment. “I’m serious!”

“I’m so sorry, Vitya,” Yuri says between heaves of breath, trying to control his laughter. “I just can’t believe you’re jealous of Phichit!

Viktor gasps in shock at the accusation. “I am not jealous! I just don’t like it when you talk to him when I’m around. Or when you speak different languages and I can’t understand. Or when you skate with him like you’re dancing together.” Viktor’s voice starts to quiet down as he lists his complaints, slowly realizing that he might actually be jealous.

Yuri finally stops laughing and gives his coach a sympathetic look. He wraps his arms around Viktor’s shoulders and hugs him tight.

“Phichit is my best friend, and nothing more. We just spent a lot of time together when we were living in Detroit,” Yuri assures in a soft voice. He nuzzles his face into his neck a bit, and Viktor relishes in the feeling of having Yuri in his arms. “We just know each other really well. You’re so much more than that. You’re more than my coach. I thought you would understand this by now; that you’re the only one.”

Viktor hesitates, Yuri’s words hanging in the air. Those simple words made all of the tension and anger disappear.

“You promise?”

“I promise, Viktor. There’s no one else,” Yuri whispers as he pulls away to look into those pretty blue irises of Viktor’s. “You’re the only one.”

Confession:  Even after all my playthroughs of Origins, 2, and Inquisition, I still like The Darkspawn (genuinely like, brood mothers and all) more than I like The Chantry.
Every playthrough of Awakening I have sided with the Architect to let him live hoping he will give The Darkspawn free will because I literally would rather Thedas be covered in The Taint and Blighted than ever have that God forsaken (literally) religion ever become the only way of thought on Thedas.
I hope I can play a free will Darkspawn soon like in The Origins DLC or see more of them in the future because they literally are what makes this series worth playing.

Every time I see a post about the MAMAs that says 

“Oh my god do you guys even care about BTS”
“I can’t believe you would let BTS down like this”
“After everything they’ve done for us this is how you repay them”
“Are you even trying anymore”
“If you’re not voting unfollow me”
“If you’re not voting I’m blocking”

Or any variation of, it sickens me. You have no idea what’s going on in people’s lives. America is breaking in two, SKorea is crumbling, there’s crazy earthquakes happening, so many countries are in turmoil, and you are sitting there guilting people because they aren’t voting in an online poll? Seriously?

Look, I know you want BTS to win MAMA awards. So do I, very much. But guilting people isn’t going to do shit. It will actually decrease peoples’ want to vote. How about encouragement for a change? Or how about asking if you can help out? I wonder how many people have seen those posts and just went well fuck this shit. There are so many better methods of going about this. Please just stop. Don’t guilt, help.

the most awkward thing ever just happened

Ok so i sold my old small TV on shpock and i have a thing about talking to people on the phone or meeting strangers (ones that im never going to meet again) so when they said they would come and collect i told them i was going to be out and that my “roommate” would be home to give it to them

ok so there is no roommate i live with my gf but the guy in the pic looked hella creepy and murderous so i didnt want to go into too much detail..

so i asked my gf if she could just take the tv and remote to them and take the money and then its all ok and its done. 

So the doorbell goes and i am already in red alert mode, what if they see me and know i LIED ABOUT NOT BEING HOME what if they know i am just too socially inept to talk to them whAT IF THEY WANT TO ASK ME QUESTIONS ABOUT MY PERFECTLY FINE WORKING TV THAT I DONT KNOW THE ANSWER TO?!

my gf Sascha goes downstairs to get the door, she’s rlly chill and v sociable so shes my lifeline in anything to do with people ever, i hear her answer the door and all is going well, i can hear another lady talking so i only assume the guy has sent his wife and then i hear sascha say “yea sure come up”

this is the end of the world they will come up and see me in my Simpsons pajamas and my hair all messy and food down my shirt and they will scream LIAR TRAITOR and they will know i was just too scared to talk to them. 

even though i’m very sure they wouldn’t have bat an eyelid if i was there or not bUT THAT DOESN’T MATTER

so naturally i run away and hide in one of our rooms before they come upstairs because that is my only option since i said i wouldn’t be here and i must keep up  the pretense to the strangers in my house and i close the door and realise this is my life now for the duration of the visit because i am too much of a pussy to just go about my day

i hear the lady saying to sascha  as she comes up the stairs that she just wants to see if it turns on before she buys it which in my rational mind is fine, id want to as well and i know it works so its all ok 

BUT WHAT IF IT DOESNT WORK EVEN THOUGH I TESTED IT NOT 10 MINS BEFORE THEY CAME WHAT IF IT SUDDENLY BROKE AND I HAVE TO COME OUT OF MY SHAME ROOM TO EXPLAIN TO HER AND SHE KNOWS I WAS HIDING FROM HER

i think my stress was getting to sascha because i heard her start being a bit awkward and theres loads of nervous laughter 

our house isnt the most normal house to enter it is full of taxidermy and hundreds of animal skulls and a big statue of a german shepherd we bought from a man on the internet the other day and i can imagine saschas nervous laughter is from leading the lady into the lounge

sash is carrying the tv and remote and is quite a small girl so this is pretty hard for her, as she comes in the lounge she can see our washing basket in the middle of the room, predominantly filled with underwear, typical. She tries to kick this out of the way whilst trying to balance with the tv but its too late and the lady has seen so she gives up 

sascha is in somewhat of a stressful panic now too (as we werent expecting anyone to come inside) she starts pulling out every single plug in the wall to prove our tv works, she rips out the xbox, wifi, tv and lamp in a strange power display (no pun intended) to prove that our tv will work in ANY socket

as she is pulling wires out from behind the tv she accidentally pulls out her box of magic tricks and tries hurriedly to cover it with the dvd called “This is the End” but the lady has already seen this too 

the lady then chooses to sit down as sascha keeps turning the tv on at the wall but off on the remote in a desperate panic 

but she doesnt sit on the big corner sofa, she chooses the beanbag, which at this point is in need of beans and therefore rather baggy, she sits down and pretty much falls over but still tries to maintain a cool dignity as if it didnt happen

she is stronger than us, she is buying the tv

as she tries to re position herself in the leather puddle which is now our beanbag, she notices the vast amount of skulls in the room and laughs nervously

meanwhile i am in my shame room trying not to move worried that sascha will need me and just call me in 

then the lady will know my dirty secret 

i was hiding

she offers sascha the money and sascha barks to put it on the table as she is still trying to turn the tv on, the table only has a very big cow skull and 1 solitary pingpong ball. She puts the money down cautiously next to this modern art display and as she looks back at sascha (who is now beaming as the tv is plugged in and working) her eyes slowly go upwards and fix on something

she says thankyou and rushes to leave

once she had left we realised she was looking at this


anonymous asked:

" I also see Maxie and Archie as, not exactly laying low when they’re in public, but that they wouldn’t purposely attract attention to themselves " So what do Maxie and Archie do when they accidentally draw too much attention to themselves? Would they live somewhere more secluded and private?

When I wrote this, I had forgotten that in the remakes, Maxie and Archie don’t disband their teams like they do in the original, and that they instead vow to reform them.  So, having forgotten this, I had originally thought that after they disband their teams, they would likely live someplace more secluded, to avoid people for the most part (out of a sense of guilt).

But after going back through the game dialogue and seeing that they don’t disband their teams (and in my personal headcanon, end up combining them), that changes a bit how I see them interacting with the public.  I still don’t think they would purposely attract attention to themselves when they’re out as a family, but since this new Team would have to interact with the public, they don’t avoid people either.  It would be important to rebuild trust and make up for the damage they did as Team Aqua and Team Magma, and they can’t do this unless they interact with people. In this scenario, attention isn’t a problem unless it’s negative.  Attention helps you spread your message and creates the opportunity to collaborate with more people.

But I imagine early on, they would be met with hostility by some people. In the scenario where they would be somewhere and attract too much negative attention from people, I can’t see either of them backing down and just quietly leaving.  Both of them are headstrong and stubborn, and while they certainly feel guilt and shame for their actions, they also need to rebuild people’s trust in them. To be honest, Archie seems like the type who would tell someone to fight him if they’re upset at him.  If it helps them vent their frustrations, then fight him in a Pokemon battle (and since in the Pokemon world, how strong you are as a trainer seems to be one way to gain the respect of others, it would inadvertently build other’s respect for him when he won).  Perhaps Maxie would just watch and listen, or perhaps he would join in on the battle as well.  Either way, once the battle was over, they would likely try to explain themselves.  If the situation were still bad enough that it seemed like it could turn violent, they might leave then.  But even in that scenario, once they got back to the base, they would probably try to come up with ways to pacify those people in the future.

I also see them as just living wherever the modified base for the new Team ends up being.  Like before, where Team Aqua and Team Magma lived in their bases, the reformed Team carries on this tradition, but would need a much larger base to accommodate the merging of the two teams (maybe they just expand the one near Lilycove though since it is in a nice location).  Archie and Maxie live in the base as well and share quarters.  I’d like to think that this time though, they put a little more effort into the living accommodations.

lol, you ask ET that and you're going to get a dissertation on the MOST PURE LOVE TO EVER EXIST THAT TRANSCENDED TIME/LOGIC/HYGIENE. But you know, you could also mention her father, Finn (who beyond just dying, SHE had to be the one to kill). However, my suspicion is that, somewhat understandably, she's just an actress and rarely thinks about plots that aren't currently ongoing.

Lmao, I don’t even care. I just want to see what her response is.

Yeah, but see, that last line doesn’t make sense. Her job as an actress is to thoroughly understand her character in order to give the best possible performance.  We like characters because they are relatable. Characters are relatable because they are human. They are human because they have layers. They have layers because their actors really think about how the events of their lives would make them react in certain situations. 

Eliza should be more in touch with her character than anyone else.

Just look at Bob. JRoth actually credits a lot of his acting success (and therefore Bellamy’s expanding role) to Bob’s deep analysis of Bellamy and his background, taking Bellamy from a one-dimensional “bad boy” type character to what he is right now. 

So yeah..Eliza has no excuse.

anonymous asked:

why it has to be a triangle? it can be a happy poly relationship

*daydreaming eyes* It certainly could but 

from an “analyzing-the-show” perspective I think this is not possible because

  1. Jim Moriarty is officially and canonically the villain
  2. John looks like he wants to slit Sherlock’s throat every time he’s obsessed with Jim
  3.  Jim basically plans to destroy the entire planet just because Sherlock and John live in the same flat

so, no matter what dreams Sherlock may have at night (I WISH I COULD SEE THEM), I’m not sure John and Jim would be fond of the idea of being in a poly relationship with each other, because they are both very fixated to Sherlock and both have enormous issues when Sherlock gives his attention to someone else too. 

Then again, in my head, I still prefer the love triangle just because I love that old-as-time trope (what can you do) and I also get very affected by the show’s canon characterization (John and Moriarty hating each other and needing Sherlock’s entire attention) so I prefer the idea of Jim and John fighting for Sherlock’s heart and Sherlock being torn between them. But this is just personal taste in fiction of course. 

And it’s kinda self-inflicted torture because if I was writing that story I would basically fling Sherlock from one to the other in every season like a ping-pong ball for eternity but unfortunately BBC Sherlock will have a more definite finale :’((((

Imagine if graves had QR codes. I’ve been thinking about this probably a little too much.

It’s not like every grave would have one, just people (or their family) who wanted one could have it. When you scanned it it could give you more information on who the person was. With a gravestone you just get the name, date of birth and death, maybe if they were a mother or son or what have you. But you scan the QR code and it would tell you where the person was from, their hobbies, their career, words about them from friends or family. Maybe a picture. You could really start seeing them as less of a gravestone and more of an actual once-living being. 

I couldn’t sleep last night because I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Imagine if it could be something like a will; maybe you could have the choice on what information would be put ahead of time, how you’d want others to remember you. Maybe you’d scan the QR code and it would just take you to a page of that person’s favorite pie recipe or something I don’t know. It’s kind of a weird idea but I needed to get it out of my system.

i rlly, rlly need the “sakura lives” au (she is an angel and deserves to live on forever ofc!!!) bc i want to see her support peko. i want to see them bond. they’d be so good for each other. can u imagine how great that would be??? what a healthy friendship they could have??? double dating with aoi and fuyuhiko??? need i say more???

I’m assuming that you don’t constantly bash them for theirs. Point this out. Ask them how they would like it if they were constantly bashed for their beliefs. If it doesn’t work give them an example and see how they would react.
If all else fails, just tell them to drop the subject and/or go fuck themselves.

Hi, I'm new to astrology and I became interested in it because of family dynamics. My daughter is proving to be wildly different than my son and I want to raise and balance my family, giving my children the individual care they need.

We also live as an extended family so I also want help with my Mother in law lol...

 I’m actually reading “The Astrology of Family Dynamics” by Erin Sullivan. It’s perfect for family dynamics. However, you have to be a little advanced in astrology first to kinda see what’s going on. If you don’t have the time for that though, I’m sure an astrologer will be glad to help you.

What do you really think of Reno and Tseng and Elena?

For the next five asks, my muse cannot tell a lie. (5/5)
(Not accepting anymore)

Why this question?

He have had enough of this truth telling thing. Not all that pleased over sharing his private thoughts.

“I give them a lot of thoughts, seeing them nearly every day…”

What do he really think of them? "They’re great Turks. Professionals in their own ways. Wish they would take better care of themselves, they’re bad at it.“ There was almost something warm and nurturing in his tone, but it could just had been him taking a deep breath in the middle of the sentence.

"Consider them as family. I think I have got a bit too attached to them, honestly. Not doing well with attachments.”

Girls don’t want boyfriends, girls want a 7 book series on the marauders during Hogwarts/anything pre-war. I will watch a 4 hour movie of Sirius and Remus taking turns entertaining Baby Harry while the other does some housework for Lily and James because they’re both passed out cold from pure exhaustion while cuddled together on the couch. I would love nothing more to see just how they all meshed together at hogwarts. Did the boys always get along while they were young? What did they get into spats with eachother about? Would they hurl insults at each other, or were they really bad for giving the silent treatment? Ijust want some marauders stuff where they’re all still happy, alive, and together; before their lives were ripped apart. I have so many unanswered questions about them, who they were, and what they were like (individually and together) that I would give almost anything for that.

I’m not gonna lie, there are one of two ways I’ll be happy with them handling Carrie’s death in episode IX. Either we don’t see her at all, but we know she’s off stirring shit up. Or they do what they did with Tarkin and give her a proper send-off/closure. 

I don’t want some offhand mention of “Oh, she was killed in this and such a battle that happened off screen”. If her action is off screen, I want “Yeah, General Organa told me” and “General Organa’s got XXX platoon (or whatever) on XYZ planet clearing our way”. If their solution is to kill her (and I prefer they didn’t, even if that means we don’t see her), I want it to be heroic in some way. I’m not opposed to them CGI-ing her into episode IX (which, since I feel like she has a bit to do with Kylo Ren’s story, there is a high possibility), especially considering how few scenes she’ll probably have with all the action focused on Rey, Finn, and Poe. I dunno, I don’t think Carrie would want Leia to die just because she did, but I don’t know her, so I can’t say. But if Leia is going out, I want it to be with a bang. I want it to be fighting. I want it to leave ripples that affect the whole rest of the story. I don’t want her to fizzle out and be left behind by the story. Both Leia and Carrie deserve so much better.

I sometimes think how incredibly young for the Galaxy standards of life expectancy was PT trio when they died.

I mean, Padme died in her 20s, it’s very young even for our standards. Anakin was 46, Obi-Wan 57. It’s still very young for the Galaxy that has humanoid 90-years-old running around with a lightsaber and kicking ass of people three times younger.

I would estimate that before Clone Wars life expectancy would be around 120? 130 years? If not longer. This means that even Obi-Wan, who was the oldest from them when he died, didn’t live half of what he should.

I really like to give myself sads.

(Actually, It would be very interesting to see how Clone Wars and later the Empire fucked with life-expectancy of people, because I am sure that it drastically dropped.)
