when paul does that thing with his face

A tribute to Demo

Over time Demo has become one of my favourite characters in this whole series. It’s very sad that he gets so little attention (from both the comic team and the fans it seems). That’s why I decided to make a small appreciation post about what I like about him.

Let’s start with chapter 1: Gray Mann took over Mann Co. and fired all mercs. Most of them went into hiding or just moved on with their lives:
Scout: Helped Soldier and then wanted to get his money from the bank before vanishing. Ended up in prison though.
Soldier: Was kicked out of his castle and then started working as a tourist guide.
Pyro: Apparently became the CEO of a freaking engineering company??
Heavy: Returned to his family in Siberia.
Engie: Disappeared and took care of the Administrator.
Medic: Started working for a different team.
Sniper: Went back home to Australia and then started looking for his birth parents.
Spy: Wanted to go underground for a while. Ended up in prison with Scout unfortunately.

But what does Demo do? Nothing. He is depressed and unable to move on with his life. This job was everything to him.

He seems to drink even more than usual and completely lets himself go, not caring for anything. 

And now look at him when Miss Pauling is giving him his job back.

Look at his face: He is so genuinely happy and blissful when he is offered to join the gang again. Totally changed from one second to the next! :D

Another thing to notice about Demo is that he doesn’t bear grudges against his friends, no matter how shitty they may treat him.

Sniper knocks him out and then wants to throw him into a shallow grave!

But who is the one who supports Sniper after he got shot by the TFC mercs? Demo. 

In Chapter 6 Medic joins his old comrades in battle again. 

Medic betrayed the team and got Sniper killed, but he brought him back to life later - and that’s all that matters to Demo. He also doesn’t really mind Medic cutting pieces of his brain out.

(Don’t forget, he also immediately forgave his liver for leaving him.
DemoxLiver = OTP lol)

Look how happy and enthused he is to be back in action and to blow things up. This guy loves his work!

Look how happy he is to be reunited with his team. This guy loves his friends!

He is the only one of the mercs who visibly cares for the others and is happy to work with them. And that’s why I love him. :)


@sipscola asks: “could you do a facial reference of the beatles?”

Here ya are my dear

John: I emphasize his very long roman nose, bushy eyebrows, narrow eyes (also he doesn’t have much of an eyelid crease from what I’ve seen) and small mouth. The most difficult part of john is his jaw shape to me. He has very large jaw but sometimes it looks more Diamond shaped with a protruding chin, and other times it’s very round. I think a lot of that has to do with what year your drawing too, he was rounder and more baby faced until ‘67- then he got a lot sharper. Biggest thing for me to highlight is his nose.

Paul: Eyes/eyebrows make Paul’s face. Very large and doe eyed. Eyebrows are dramatic half circles facing up, eyes are dramatic and droopy half circles. Also he has a short and pointy nose that connects to a v shallow brow bone. His mouth is pretty small too and I’ll either draw it as a subdued version of Rick Wright’s mouth(if closed) or a tilted D (if open) very much like the emoticon :D (but keep it small) Paul’s jaw is very soft though it’s very strong. Also his hair tends to part a little on the left side of his head and swoops to the right.

George: the most defining features on George’s face are his eyebrows and cheeks/jaw. His overall appearance is very sharp, the only soft point on his face is the round tip of his nose. His eyes are narrow and slightly tilted down, their most obvious feature is his large and full eyelashes. His eyebrows are thick angled and very low on his brow (unlike Paul whose eyebrows are very high up on his brow bone) Jojs eyebrows are part of the reason he has a sour resting face, they look very dramatic and intense. Also he has very prominent cheek bones and a loonngg face to go with them. (much like Roger Waters’) George also has large ears and large lips.

Ringo: apart from the large schnoz, ringo also has a very large mouth with full lips. But the main thing I emphasize on him that isn’t his nose is his eyes. They droop very much like Paul’s, but his eyebrows droop low with them instead of contrasting and pointing away. Ringo’s features are in general pretty droopy. He’s also got a short triangle shaped face and a fairly weak jaw. His hair is often very neat with few flyaways, only when it’s grown out does it fam out a bit behind his large ears. I also usually draw ringo with a thick neck.

Hope this helps ✌️

"Paul" instead of "Jesus"

Okay, so I had this lil thought thanks to a lovely conversation.

So, like Daryl wouldn’t ever call Jesus “Jesus”. He thinks it’s ridiculous, but no one else calls him Paul so it would also be weird if Daryl randomly calls him Paul, right? Maybe that’s why Daryl hasn’t said his name yet, because he isn’t sure how to call him.

But now imagine, if Daryl accidently does call him Paul. Like, it just happens. Now think of the look on Jesus’ face. He would be so surprised bc as I said, no one else calls him that. But then, he would just smile to himself, but act like nothing happened, so that he doesn’t scare Daryl away, bc you know..his name sounds so wonderful when Daryl says it and he wants to hear it more often. And so it happens, Daryl’s the only one who calls him by his real name, wouldn’t that be the most beautiful thing ever?
Like, it just seems to be such an intimate thing to do, idk.

My dream: Brock Lesnar pops out from the curtain. Does his lil bouncy thing. Starts on his way to the ring. Pauses. Bouncy thing. Enter Braun, in a rage. Fucks Brock the fuck up. “I do what I want when I want!” Grabs title. Strokes it lovingly. Throws it at Brock’s face. Storms off. Paul in a state of confusion

your name is forever written in ink [Percy - 4]

So here’s more of the Soulmate AU that you can read here. If you guys would like to see more, I would not be opposed to writing a final part in Annabeth’s POV. Let me know! xoxo

  • He didn’t know that it was possible, but he thinks that he loves Annabeth even more now. 
  • It’s been crazy for the past few months, with his parents getting ready to have a baby. They decide to move into a bigger apartment, so Percy packs up all of their stuff and helps them move into a new place with a bigger room for the nursery plus a new room for Percy. 
  • (He’s been thinking about getting an apartment with Annabeth because they’re both getting tired of the dorms, but he’s not going to tell his mom that right now.)
  • She’s gigantic. Percy’s never really been around pregnant women, but it’s gross and cool at the same time because his mom is literally growing a person inside of her.
  • Annabeth fawns over his mother a lot of the time now, cooking and doing the dishes while Sally rests and watches over her shoulders. It’s one of the best things that Percy has ever seen, Annabeth being in the kitchen and helping his mom, and he has to stop himself from thinking about what he’s going to do when they get back to her dorm after—
  • They find out that the baby is a girl, and his parents let him pick her name, which is—a big job because this kid is going to be called this every day for forever, and he can’t fuck this up.

anonymous asked:

I know this might be kinda weird, but I was watching SE videos last night and I noticed how every time Stefan and Elena kissed, or held each other's hands, or hugged or just anything, they press each other against one another so hard, like they want to melt and become one whole thing, like they are never going to separate again, and especially for Elena, the way she buries her fingers into his neck, it just kills me! That kind of love....unebelievably good.

Not weird at all, anon (btw this turned out to be SUPER long, sorry!) I’ve noticed the same thing and this is why I say that SE is a physically intimate ship; being physically intimate doesn’t necessarily mean sex all the time, it also means showing the sheer extent of what you’re feeling through touch and Stefan and Elena did that so intensely and yet so naturally that it’s almost mundane for them because it’s just how they interact. When they hug, they entwine themselves in each other, because for that moment they are one. Stefan always squeezes his eyes shut or presses his lips against Elena’s head whenever they’re in an embrace and Elena always has this expression of unadulterated relief, it always looks like she’s coming home whenever she’s in Stefan’s arms and she runs to him [”And with Stefan, whenever he’s around, it’s just like she melts into his arms and she feels somewhat relieved”]:

And when they kiss, I mean, you can’t hear it in the gifs because they’re gifs, lol but Elena sighs whenever they kiss, this *at last* kind of sigh even if they’ve only been apart for an afternoon and there’s this quality to their kisses where it’s like I mean, it’s like a freaking Ed Sheeran song, there’s a relish to the way they kiss, this need for just more of each other and it can be like this, where it’s this fervent RIGHT NOW:

Or it can be like this where it’s intense and they’re sinking into each other, taking their time with each other, like “i really needed this” 

and then besides the hugs and besides the kisses, there’s this need to always be touching, to always be physically in contact with each other:

Like even when Elena falls from the bleachers, her hands are around Stefan, clinging to him:

With Steferine, Katherine’s hands were by her side.

Stefan and Elena are always reaching out for each other, they’re like magnets, the way physically connect to each other. Diana Gabaldon has this quote about Jamie and Claire in Outlander and obviously the contexts are different and she’s talking about a particular scene between Jamie and Claire that makes the quote kind of specific but she says something that reminded me of Stelena the moment I read it:

“When Jamie reaches out his hand toward Claire… They just snap together like a clamshell closing, and there’s this moment when they’re both facing him together, Jamie suddenly fierce in spite of the pain and his knowledge that something terrible is about to happen; he has his wife with him. And she then stays with him, holding him tight through the nailing of his hand, holding his head to keep him from having to see it, trying so hard to take his pain. - Diana Gabaldon”    

And I think the physicality and the emotional sentiment of that is exactly like Stelena because I do think they snap together like a clamshell closing:

and when they’re together in the face of something, they do go get bolder and fiercer like in 3x05 when Stefan pushes Klaus and yells ‘No!” it’s after he and Elena share a look and in 2x20 when Elena is about to go with Klaus Stefan holds her back and says, “No”. Stefan gets bolder with Elena. While with Stefan, Elena does do things where she holds him hard or touches his face so she can take some of his pain:

So yeah their love is the definition of profound, soulmate love.

*none of these gifs are mine*


The Good Life | Series 3, Episode 5 | The Wind-Break War (1976)

Quite possibly the most famous episode from the series ever, or at least the most memorable, when ‘wife-swapping’ almost comes to Surbiton when the Goods and the Leadbetters have a little too much peapod burgundy in the last ten minutes.

I’m particularly fond of this scene with Barbara and Jerry; a drunk Jerry revealing his crush for Barbara and saying/doing the most hilarious things with a completely straight face is marvellous. Paul Eddington does it beautifully.

any hcs about the tribe/pack you would like to share w us??

there are Too Many..

• some little girl in the tribe has caught on to the pack and everytime a wolf howls in la push or one of the “Uley gang” walks by she just smiles secretively and gets all giddy sends the boys knowing looks like “bitch i caught onto u y'all ain’t slick”
• that same little girl grows up w/ wolves howling in her backyard and starts to lose sleep because they’re GODDAMN LOUD and they won’t shut the hell up and one day she snaps and just yells out into the forest: “SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU SPIRIT WARRIORS A GIRL HAS BEEN TRYING TO GET SOME SLEEP FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS HERE BUT YOU STILL WON’T SHUT UR DAMN JAWS”
• Quil actually begins to develop impressive art skills because of coloring pictures with Claire endlessly and he starts making real art and becomes a certified Art Hoe™
• Kim often falls asleep with either her head or feet dangling out of her window because of waiting for Jared to visit her after patrol
• if Rachel ever leaves her phone open next to Paul (God forbid) he takes a gajillion selfies on it just to torture her a little bit and he actually starts to enjoy taking selfies and has figured out his perfect angles
• Quil (not so surprisingly imo) slips up on the whole “I can’t tell people I’m a teenage boy who turns into an overgrown dog at will!!!!” thing more than Claire, and Claire is the one who has to remind him that “Qwwuuuuuiillllyyyyyyyyy you can’t tell them thaaaaaaat!!! It’s a secreeeeetttttttt!!”.
• The pack starting to drop hints about being werewolves around their classmates and co-workers to “see if they catch on”
• “Booking off another day at work again, Jared??”
• “Yeah, it’s the full moon, I always book the full moons off! :)”
• The pack making dad jokes @Sam to piss him off
• SAM: “Jake, pass me a muffin, I’m hungry.”
• EMBRY: (snickering) “Hey hungry, I’m dad!!”
• SAM: “stop”
• The pack always shredding their shorts and shoes and go to the store on the border of La Push and Forks to replenish their wardrobe so much that the old lady always just looks at them like “How many fucking shorts do these freaks need Jesus this is the third time this week”
• The pack stumbles upon an actual wolf pack that wandered onto the forest of the Rez and they have noooooo idea what to do
• “Do you think we can communicate with them? You know, because we’re both wolves?”
• “Jake that’s literally the stupidest thing I have ever heard in my entire life have u forgotten that these wolves are REAL and not somewhat human and mentally insane like we are????????¿???”
• countless stashed shorts in the woods from Emily because she’s seen way too many penises and is getting tired of having bare boy butts on her new pillows
• Embry running around naked trying to find a pair of shorts because he has to get home but ends up flashing some poor girl on a hike
• Embry imprints on said girl
• Brady and Collin playing pranks on Paul and the other guys (but mainly Paul becayse they think its funny when his face does the thing)
• the guys wreaking havoc at school and inadvertently torturing poor student council member Kim who always gets glares from her co-members because Paul and Jared ruined one of their banners again

i think these are pretty funny fanfic ideas y'all can go nuts

Hawaiian Percy having ignorant kids going up to him and being like "you're Hawaiian? Do you know hula? Cool! I can do the hula! *hip wiggle and hand flap*" and Percy's just trying to not strangle the kid because it's sO INCORRECT

I’m so here for this, anon

  • It happens for the first time at their monthly group meet-up
  • They manage to have all “the seven+” squad minus leo bc he’s still MIA with Calypso present,Grover and Rachel  too because reasons
  • The stench of Tartarus on Percy,Annabeth and Nico is enough to drive away any monsters in the area so for the first time in a long while they all get some peace
  • they’re chillin’ in Central Park, and it’s one of those nights where you can feel that summer’s just around the corner
  • they get to talking about the first war
  • Will tells everyone how that winter afterwards, he went on relief trips all over the Carribean, trying to work through the grief and loss
  • Percy really feels sorry for him, the kid was thirteen when all this stuff happened to him, his brothers dying and him having to step up and be a leader in their places
  • he notices Will is careful not to mention what all the trips were relieving, but he knows how bad the battles his father had waged against Oceanus were, there’s no way the mortal world could have gone by unaffected
  • everyone laughs when Will admits that his trademark “Surf Barbados” tee was actually bought at the airport gift shop after they lost his bag, and he can’t surf to save his life
  • and then Percy’s like well I kick ass especially piper’s at surfing because I’m the Son of Poseidon and actual queen Sally Jackson, who’s Hawaiian
  • Since he’s lived in East Harlem, aka El Barrio, most of his life ( the east 104th and 1st address in tlt), most people assume he’s latino
  • Will Solace was one of these people
  • And he’s all “no way Percy I didn’t know you were Hawaiian! When I was in El Salvador they taught us this dance and they didn’t call it a hula exactly, but I think it’s kind of the same thing
  • Nico sees this as a prime opportunity to embarrass him and is like “ Yeah Will show us all how it goes”
  • If Solangelo is your cup of tea Nico and Will are definitely still just friends/sort of toeing the line at this point like let’s be real it would take them forever to get together
  • so everyone gets up and is led through this dance than in no way resembles a hula and percy’s just sitting there with his hands over his eyes shaking his head
  • Percy stand up and put his hands on his hips and say in the most serious tone “ there’s only one person who can fix this.”
  • when faced with such a dilemma, he does the natural thing and calls Sally
  • “Mom, scrap your movie night with Paul we have a serious crisis on our hands”
  • Five minutes later the whole gang is huddled together on the subway ,headed to Percy’s
  • Please just picture this in your head for a second like all nine of them in a subway car crammed with business people
  • They all tumble into the Jacksons apartment and feel sort of bad about crashing Sally’s date night
  • But then she’s so nice and starts fussing over everyone like “ Oh my goodness Nico you’ve gotten so tall! Reyna I love what you’ve done with your hair! and Rachel I haven’t seen you in ages how’s the fundraising going? Frank I have this book I think you would like, ask me about it later”
  • he’s having a moment but he tries to keep it on the dl because he knows demigod/mortal parent relationships can be messy
  • Sally’s always made sure Percy knew about not just his Olympian family history but hers as well, teaching him about Hawaiian culture and to be proud of his heritage
  • She got him a ukulele the Christmas after the first war and playing music helped not only with his ADHD and general fidgeting but it also helped him with processing the loss of so many friends
  • He plays it a lot on those nights he just can’t close his eyes post-tartarus 
  • He brings it out and plays a song that reminds his mother of Montauk in the heat of July
  •  “Show em how it’s done, Mom.”
  • Sally hasn’t danced Hula in ages, and you can almost see the years of worry disappear from her face when she starts to move
  • by the end of the night, most of them haven’t improved much from where they started, but they start to feel normal again, well, as normal as things can be, like this night is the start of a long road to finally feeling okay again.

Sound Navigation and Ranging, paul/teemu

“I love you,” Teemu says cheerfully. “You know that. Don’t die in a volcano.”

Paul pauses in putting his boots on. “I won’t die in a volcano,” he says finally. “It’s not that kind of volcano.”

“All volcanoes are that kind of volcano. And you’re supposed to say it back,” Teemu reminds him.

Teemu has been on board the NOAA research submarine Judge Nahar for six months and fourteen days when the Canadians swap out for the Swedes. He’s been fixing broken camera equipment and rewiring computers for half a year when they all stand up and introduce themselves in the cramped mess hall, one by one, enthusiastic, ridiculous faces all here to do the best science they could imagine.

“Hi,” they say, waving their hands in aborted, defunct gestures of greeting. “I am Don; Andre; Hannah. I am here from all kinds of places. I study thermal vent systems; I study ignimbrite eruption in La Pacana caldera; I study the ecosystem effects of ocean acidification. I am so happy to be here.”

Teemu greets them all with a smile: they should be happy to be here. The Judge Nahar is amazing.

The last one to go is a man Teemu’s age, dark-eyed and oddly wary.

“Hi,” he says, not even pretending to wave. He isn’t smiling; he does not look like he quite knows how. “I’m Paul Kariya. I… study rocks.”

Teemu has been working on engines since he was four, working on boats since he was ten, and a mechanic for twenty-six years, and he has never met anyone like Paul Kariya.

The Fall - 2X05 in bullet points.
  • Eww, Paul, you’re walking bare feet on that soggy mess?
  • “The target appeared to be playing loud music” Stella’s face: Does he now? Cheeky bugger.
  • That drawing of a brown-haired woman Paul was drying over the sink looked quite a bit like Reed.
  • Stella is eating melon. These things need to be pointed out.
  • So let me see if I get this right: Peter/Paul Spector was the son of a John Paul Marshall who was adopted by the Spectors in North London. Marshall is currently in prison in Canada for the murder of a man.
  • When Stella asked “female victim?” it sounded as if she thought for a moment that Paul’s dad had killed his mum. Not that simple, honey.
  • Oh look! It’s John Lee Roche’s dad (and this will make zero sense to non X-Files fans)
  • “Call me father.” No but we’ll allow Jim to call you a sick fuck. Ugh.
  • See? It’s not just us who fix our hard drives with a hammer when RTE One doesn’t stream on Sunday nights.
  • NO! YOU GO TAKE A LOOK AT THAT DERELICT BUILDING NOW! NOT LATER! Srsly, what is wrong with you people? Clarice Starling would be on that shit like white on rice.
  • A lovelock? Oh, Katie, you poor, poor deluded child. By the way, bridge structural engineers all over the world hate your guts for doing that, people. Just so you know.
  • That control lady is so efficient!
  • Great, now even the kois are pissed off at Paul.
  • Oh look, that’s creepy hotel Peeping Tom, who has no relevance to the plot whatsoever. The Fall does that quite a bit. Last year it was the Monroes’ bore fest. At least this guy doesn’t take too much screen time, so I guess that’s progress.
  • You used your own name to register your room? Tsk, Paul, rookie mistake.
  • So a guy asks you to destroy a woman’s lock of hair and a memory card he’s been hiding in his seedy hotel room, and you just go ahead and do it? Either Katie is not very bright, or she knows Paul is the killer and she’s okay with it, which makes her a horrible person.
  • Hagstrom is so badass. Now there’s someone appropriate for you, Stella. Pretty and not too close of a colleague to create a fuss.
  • When Editing Goes Wrong: Stella’s outfit is the same she wore last episode, when talking to Eastwood about hiring Anderson. Stella actually went from trousers and navy top, to skirt, black top and black heels and then back to trousers and navy top by the time she goes to see Reed at the morgue. Someone did not pay attention in the cutting room. Unfortunately, fans always do.
  • So I guess Jim did call him “Father” after all.
  • Our Little Sailor: “Where the fuck is he?” It ain’t The Fall if Stella doesn’t say ‘fuck’ at least once per episode. It must have been in small print in Gillian Anderson’s contract - Verbal Abuse Mandatory.
  • I love these thugs. Not only do they know their A to Z of Belfast by heart, but bald guy keeps his gun in a child-proof box (okay, I know, not really).
  • Look! Ugly Naked Guy is calling the police.
  • Oh, thank God she’s okay.

“Sorry Ma'am, we had a contact.”
“Were you hit?”
“Yeah, uh-uh. One in the flak jacket.”
“And Spector? Is it Spector?”
“Yes, Ma'am.”

Don’t you love how professional Ferrington remains throughout? She’s just been shot for Christ sake! I would be all: “Piss off Ma'am, I need to lie down.”

  • Stella, sweetheart, please explain to me how writing “EVil” in black marker on a piece of A4 paper and blu-tacking it to the wall, helps your investigation? In case you forget that a bloke who strangles women for kicks is not a good person?
  • Hi Reed. Bye Reed. *waves sadly*
  • I could hear Dani thinking: “You’re letting him go????”
  • Someone needs to explain to me why Anderson had to be the arresting officer, because this is not clear for me at all.
  • They caught him! THEY CAUGHT HIM!

  • That music is sooo creepy!
  • This is a really shit day for Sally, innit?
  • And YES! We finally have a time stamp! Monday May the 7th. Which puts the events in 2012. So, Stella must have first arrived in Belfast in April. And someone please go and hug Sally.
  • Eastwood is missing a prop. He looks like he should be stroking a white cat.
  • Great news Sally! Your husband didn’t cheat on you! Okay he’s a serial killer, but a faithful one!!! Well, except for the Skype thing. But you know what they say: if it’s online, it doesn’t count.
  • Oh, Stella…*bellows* Reeeeeed! Get your leather-clad ass in here! And bring copious amounts of alcohol. And a box of tissue. And a sawed-off shotgun.
  • Pheww…this was hard to watch.
  •  Mitochondrial DNA, the 'mother’ gene will help lock up Spector:

  • Eheheh, I’m hearing ZZ Top “Legs” in my head. For a moment there I thought it was our favourite pathologist who was asleep. No such luck, besides she must be busy cutting and dicing bald thug guy.
  • Okay, that was hot. And I don’t even ship this pairing. Stella is like a highly sexually charged magnet. A twisted version of King Midas. The Admit-It-You-Want-To Fuck-Me-Now touch.
  • It’s always fun to watch Stella mess with Spector’s head. Your archetypal victim is letting you know that you won’t be getting out any time soon. Way to give him the finger, Stella. Well played.
  • At first I thought the police had found Rose’s car with Rose’s burnt body in it. But after scratching my head I remembered it was the car Paul burnt in series 1 episode 5, with his journals and mannequins in the boot. 
  • So I guess the big Stella/Spector Clash of the Titans will take place during the series finale.
  • And if Reed doesn’t have a scene with Stella, there will be Fandom Hell to pay. FANDOM HELL, I tell you!

And that’s all I have to say about that.
