why are you two the way you are

RYAN. 2.

a/n: this is so super hella short, but just something to get my flow going….. sorry to disappoint. ily billies<33333333


“Guess who asked for your number in class today,” Annie bursts through the front door of your shared two-bedroom house on campus.

You sit up in the love seat that you were sprawled out on, and give her your full attention, thinking maybe it’s Ryan—but Ryan doesn’t even go to University, so it couldn’t possibly be him. You reply a quiet “who?” trying not to sound too disappointed.

Derek.” She states excitedly, but now you’re confused. Derek is her boy, why is he asking for your number?

Fics Masterlist

I decided to make a masterlist of my fics in chronological order. My fics, while being stand alone pieces, are all tied together with small details here and there, and do follow the canonical AOS timeline. 

Academy Era: 

You’re a Casualty I Can’t Forget (Learn to Trust Me)

Summary: Jim has wormed his way into Len’s life after that fateful shuttle ride and a few shared drinks. He also hates doctors. Len doesn’t quite know why. One accident, two injuries, and an involuntary confinement later, he finds out. Mentions of Tarsus, mentions of past abuse, minor descriptions of medical treatment. 

If You Need a Place to Crash (Let Me Catch You When You Fall)

Summary: Jim’s roommate is a dick. Bones is there to help. Close quarters means finding out stuff about the other person, and not all of it pleasant. Jim doesn’t sleep on his back for a reason. Mentions of past abuse, canon character death. 

You’re One of Us (You’re Here To Stay)

Summary: Thanksgiving at the McCoy house, complete with Len, JoJo, Mama Bones and Jim. There’s food, and pie, and with a kid and a bigger, older kid (Jim) running around, something was bound to get broken eventually. Jim’s not used to normal family dynamics, and overreacts a little. Mentions of past abuse, minor medical treatment. 

Star Trek 2009:

These Ghosts Are Not My Own

Summary:  Post-Narada and Jim isn’t coping. He hasn’t eaten or slept, he’s beat all to hell and his head is full of memories that he’s pretty sure aren’t his. He’s pretty sure he’s having a panic attack, and he can’t seem to breath. Of course Bones is here to witness it all. Wonderful. Mentions of Tarsus, mentions of past abuse.

And It’s Never Enough (But God Knows I Tried)

Summary: Jim doesn’t feel like he did enough to prevent the aftermath of Nero’s devastation. Awaiting Starfleet’s decision about his probation, he sits alone watching the news and drinking. They’re spouting the same old stuff: hero of the federation, golden boy of Starfleet. He thinks it’s all a bunch of bullshit. Bones thinks otherwise. 

Star Trek 2009- Pre Into Darkness: 

By Any Other Name (The Man is Still the Same) 

Summary: Spock does not understand. Kirk has been, thus far, immensely successful as captain, well liked and respected by the crew, despite his multiple ongoing breaches of Starfleet protocol. He simply refused to call anyone by their proper title, and it perplexed Spock to no end. Minor violence, mentions of past abuse. 

How Jim Learned to Keep a Shirt On

Summary: A sunburn can really teach one a lot of things. For example, Jim is pretty sure he’s dying. Bones does not seem to agree. This has taught Jim that Bones clearly doesn’t know what he’s talking about, medical degrees or no. Mentions of past abuse. 

Post Into Darkness: 

If He Should Die Before He Wakes (I Pray the Lord My Soul to Take)

Summary: Bones sits at Jim’s bedside after the events of Khan and the warp core. Jim won’t wake up. Bones needs him to. Mentions of past abuse, minor medical treatment. 

Just Leave Your Problems On the Shelf (We’ll Be Alright)

Summary: A few months into the 5 year mission, Jim, in a fit of frustration, says something insensitive. Bones doesn’t react well, and a long overdue conversation is had. Discussion of canon character death. 

Gibbs Prompt Request

This was requested by anon: 100. “I love you.” with Gibbs?

(gif belongs to of-badges-and-guns)

Being reunited with Gibbs was perhaps the best feeling you had ever experienced.  You both held onto one another tightly and didn’t speak a single word.  When you felt Gibbs pulling away you wondered why he would do such a thing.  After two months, all you wanted to do was be close to Gibbs.  He wanted the same, but he had something to say first.

The Marine leaned his forehead against yours.  “I love you [Y/N],” Gibbs whispered.  “I should’ve said so before I left.  Just know that I felt that way before I went missing, okay?”

“I love you too,” you said softly, cradling the agent’s face in your hand.  “I knew you would do whatever it took to get out of there.  Don’t get me wrong I was worried, but I know you and I knew that you would fight like hell to get back here.  I’m glad that you’re home.”

Gibbs smiled as he tilted his chin upwards.  His lips met yours for a passionate kiss.  This was something he would never take for granted again.  He pressed his body against yours as the kiss deepened.

Tonight was going to be a night that you and Gibbs would never forget.

The forest was almost completely dark; you could barely see two feet in front of your face. The wind would pick up at random times, making the leaves shake and shiver in the breeze. You wrapped your cloak around your neck more to try and keep out the cold. Just a little bit longer and you would finally be out and on your way to the cozy warmth of your house. 

Why you hadn’t just stayed at grandma’s for the night, you chided yourself. 

It couldn’t be helped now, you were too far to turn back; it was easier to keep going. You looked around you as a noise of crunching leaves underfoot struck your ears. In the darkness you couldn’t see anything move, but that did not mean it wasn’t there.

Your pace quickened as your heart began to race. You didn’t get far until you heard the crunching again, but faster this time. Whatever it could be didn’t matter, it was clearly coming after you. 

“What are you running from girl?” you heard a voice ask from the dark.

“Who’s there?” you ask back as you peered in all directions around you. “Make yourself known.”

Out from behind the nearest tree stepped a tall figure clad in all black. His hair matched his clothes and it was slicked back. In the dark his eyes shone. But above all that you could see two fuzzy pair of ears.

Your voice caught in your chest. Everyone in town knew exactly who this was; stories were told to you since you were young about him, but never did you think it was anything more than an old wives tale. However, you couldn’t shy away from the fact he was right here.

You were face-to-face with the Big Bad Wolf, Loki. 

Loki noticed your silence and gave a sinister laugh. “So, you have heard of me?”

You nodded your head slowly. As you quietly stood, your mind was going through every possible escape route you could take, but there was none. Loki would surely catch you before you took three steps.

“Then I suspect you will know what I want, girl?” he asked as he sauntered closer to your side.

Your mind tried its hardest to remember the old tale now, but your mind was blank with fear. “Please, don’t hurt me,” you whimpered out.

Again that sinister laugh of his met your ears. “Hurt you? Oh, sweet girl, I don’t want to hurt you. I have a proposition for you though.”

The way in which he looked at you as if you were his prey and smiled that toothy grin of his made you think otherwise. 

annie-thyme  asked:

"we've been friends for about ten years now and you've been asking me out on dates as a joke ever since we've met wait what do you mean you weren't joking?!?" AU

They are 16 years old. Charlie introduced them two days ago and they haven’t stopped talking since.
‘Asked Ruby on a date. Got rejected. Fml -S’
‘Don’t even know why I’m telling you this. Don’t laugh? -S’
‘Aw, Winchester. Never mind. ID date you! -G.’

They are 17 and it’s two days before new year’s eve. Gabriel’s brother has just blown him out on plans to go to the fireworks, and he has nobody to celebrate with. It’s too late to try and worm his way back into a party now, and his parents would never let him throw one of his own. Gabriel turns to his best friend.
“So. You’re free. I’m free. Why don’t we get all cozy down at the fireworks. I promise I’ll give you a great smooch when the clock strikes!”
Sam laughs.
“I’ll go to the fireworks. And very funny.”

They are 18 and suddenly the adult world seems very real. Gabriel is going to the college a town over, but Sam, Sam is moving away. Big dreams, far too big for Lawrence. Gabriel is trying not to cry.
“It’ll be fine, Gabe. I’ll visit, and we can skype.”
“I know, I know,” Gabriel sniffed. “You could at least let me take you to dinner if you really have to go.”

They are 19, they are 22, they are 22 again. They are 23 and 24, they are 25…
They are 26.
They feel a little like children again, a big group of them swarming the streets post-cinema, laughing and eating leftover pick-n-mix. They are Gabriel, Sam, Charlie, Castiel, Dean, Balthazar, Jo.
“So Sam, when are you and Gabriel finally going to go on that date he’s been begging you for?” Charlie asks. Gabriel shoots her a look.
“Oh, you mean the running joke of a date? Hmm, let’s see… I’m not that gullible.”
In that moment, Gabriel is faced with a choice.
He chooses to be brave, just this once.
“Actually, it’s kind of… not a joke.”
“Oh.”
“Yeah.”
“Then… tomorrow night?”
“Definitely.”

I’m so deeply invested in Charity and Vanessa it’s ridiculous - I haven’t been this deeply invested in a ship for about 5 years since I first started this blog for Lorraine Donnegan / Nikki Boston on Waterloo Road. I’m a regular Corrie viewer and was quite excited about Rana / Kate but honestly caught two seconds of Charity / Vanessa and realised that they were going to be my real obsession.

I guess I’m just a sucker for a bitch who’s a bit vulnerable under the surface - it’s what I’m drawn to. The Carla Connors and Lorraine Donnegans of the world. That’s why I love Charity, she’s exactly that, she’s a total fucking bitch but you feel like there’s something a bit more vulnerable under the surface.

I’m loving this storyline so far. I like way Charity effortlessly made Vanessa her prey and dragged her to bed. You’re not sure why she’s doing it, whether it’s to cause chaos or purely because she’s attracted to Vanessa but she’s certainly doing it. Vanessa has no idea why she’s doing it, she’s unsure of her own attraction to women and even if she did like women she wouldn’t go for someone as ridiculous as Charity - or would she? She could blame it on being drunk but she went back for more stone cold sober and she knows she’s enjoyed every second of it. 

I really enjoyed Charity’s little hurt face that we caught hold of for a few seconds when she was holding two mugs of tea watching Vanessa walk out on her for a second time. Then deliberately trying to regain her composure by making a joke of it and being deliberately antagonistic telling Vanessa that she’d be back for more. As much as it was unfair of Charity to out Vanessa in the pub in the way she did I kind of enjoyed it. One, for the fact she seems so unabashed about her own sexuality. Two, because I can’t help but feel that she was offended that Vanessa was honestly going to parade about with a man in her pub after spending the night before with her. Especially after getting Paddy to fight her battles the morning after, which I think bothered Charity. In a strange way I also think perhaps Charity was trying to do her a favour (however ill advised) because when Vanessa says ‘you’re loving this aren’t you, humiliating me?’ she looks genuinely affronted and hurt. 

I just really hope that this storyline pans out the way I want it to. According to the spoilers Vanessa is going to be going out on on a date with her sister’s friend Amanda, think she’s hot but think she’s boring. I hope that Charity finds out about it / sees it and does not know how to react to it. I hope Charity is jealous and that she’s not sure how to play it now Vanessa seems more comfortable with dating women as she can no longer make cheap digs at her sexuality to get her attention and muster some sort of reaction out of her.  I want Charity to be annoyed that Vanessa’s dating women but not her because she doesn’t see Charity as a viable dating option - just someone she wanted to sleep with but is embarrassed that she did sleep with.

I want Vanessa to go back to sleeping with Charity because she can’t resist her but continue to be dismissive and Charity to continue being her abrasive over the top rude self but also be obviously catching feelings for Vanessa. I want Charity to be the one to be emotionally vulnerable first, trying to fight it but not being able to at all.

I’ll be so angry if Charity is just a gateway into Vanessa dating other women as there’s so much potential with Charity and her.

anonymous asked:

You said about Misha not liking when people name children after him or his character etc.. When has this happened? I didn’t know he felt that way

I don’t have any links (my internet is being super slow and videos won’t load. If someone has links, can you add them to this post – please and thank you) but I was at two separate conventions where Misha had expressed “concern” for people who immortalize him or his character in that sort of way.

At the 2015 SFCon (or was it Pascon …?), a woman came up to ask Misha a question, but prefaced it by saying her son was named Castiel. Misha was like “WHAT? WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO YOUR POOR CHILD!” and the woman quickly corrected and said that that was the kid’s nickname, and his actual name was something much more common; and Misha was instantly relieved. He then told a story about how other people have said or had named their children after his character, and he thought it was completely insane for them to do that, and he felt really bad for their kids, because that name is just not something someone should have to drag around the playground.

At another convention, I saw a girl who showed Misha her Castiel tattoo while in the autograph line and his eyes went all wide and he shook his head, like he couldn’t believe she had actually permanently etched his face onto her body … he didn’t actually say anything against it, but he was definitely not like “That’s awesome” either.

And I know I’ve seen similar things in videos of other cons, but I don’t have any specifics for you. It’s just obvious that he doesn’t think those kind of permanent measures should be taken with him or his character in mind– which probably inspired him to ask people do exactly those types of crazy things in every GISHWHES.

He doesn’t think that crap should ever happen in a million years– but he also doesn’t mind daring people to be crazy enough to do it.

Why Cinder might be less of a bitch than initially thought.

So, something that always bothered me about Cinder was despite her evilness, she was shown crying in the first two volumes openings, and is clutching her arm and looking away in vol. 4.

She’s not relishing in her evil, she looks like she’s mourning. And in sacrifice (possibly her image song), it sounds a lot like, in the first part at least, Salem seducing Cinder to the dark side or something. Like, listen: “did the things you thought you should, all the things they said were good,” “All your faith in ancient ways, leaves you trapped inside a maze,” “take the lives of those you need, sow the death then reap the seeds,”? What if Cinder was a legitimate huntress-in-training, or even a full on one, and maybe even a spring maiden candidate. But something happened to weaken her trust in Lionheart, and she ran. One thing lead to the next, and suddenly she’s meeting Salem, who then sowed the seeds of doubt for those in charge or just affirmed what Cinder already suspected, and went full Palpatine on the dark side seduction.

Besides, who’s Cinder based off of? Cinderella. Who’s integral to Cinderella’s story?

Evil stepmother, anyone?

You: you stupid niggers are only allowed one black character per game

I honestly can’t even begin to fathom why you’d think sending me a racial slur is gonna help prove I’m racist for having a different video game opinion than you

anonymous asked:

o I'm sorry, that makes sense. I've heard different things from diff ppl and sources, and didn't realize that. Thank you for informing me abt the difference between bi and pan! also that wasn't the post I was referencing, I didn't even see that post which very eloquently explains it. Sorry to bother you and I hope I didn't offend you

Hey, mod Harry here. No worries, you didn’t offend me. You weren’t malicious, you simply lacked knowledge. I think I know what post you were referring to, this one, right?

First of all, all of this is intercommunity political stuff that I’m sure many people disagree with me about, so don’t take it as gospel or anything, but this is my opinion on the matter and why I responded the way I did in that ask.

When I say that “bi is pan is bi” what I mean is that the two identities describe very similar experiences and to me there is very little difference between headcanoning a character as one or the other. There is subtle differences in what it implies about their social engagement with the larger community, which is why I worded it as “identifying more with “pansexual” than “bisexual”, but there is no essential difference. 

I personally believe that dividing our community up into “bi” and “pan” is folly since we should all stand in solidarity with each other as multisexuals. Both identities are equally valid, ofc, but acting like there’s a true difference between us seems very silly to me.

But again, this is controversial intercommunity talk.

The Final Chapter

Woah…okay….whew. Trying to collect my thoughts after watching that is…well it isn’t easy. First off, MAJOR PROPS TO TEAMIPLIER. This story has had so much heart and soul put into it, and there’s been an incredible dedication to quality and detail. Bravo, Mark and Co., bravo. 

So wtf just happened? After reading some theories by my friends at @wkm-theories and considering it, I’m gonna take a stab at unravelling this tangled web. 

So, #Markiplier lives. Does he? It’s gone far beyond that now. Maybe in the beginning it was that simple, but it isn’t anymore. There are parts I got right, and parts I didn’t. There are parts the community got right, and parts we didn’t, so let’s go through this piece by piece. 

First off, obviously at this point, this is indeed the origin story of Darkiplier, and of Warfstache too. But it’s a much sadder origin story than I think anyone was expecting. We know from the Colonel (whose first name I think must be Wilford) and Detective’s argument that Celine was in fact Mark’s wife, and that Colonel Wilford had an affair with her. While the Detective calls it “stealing” and “sick sexual exploits,” I think it is clear that he loves her very much. In the spirit world/afterlife/whatever place at the end, Celine says “I never thought he’d fall this far,” and that Mark took everything from them “from his twisted quest of vengeance.” With that in mind, this is my theory on the backstory:

  • As I said in my last theory, Mark, Damien, and Wilford grew up as childhood friends together. Mark went into the entertainment business, Wilford into the army, and Damien into politics. I also am now convinced that Markiplier Manor definitely used to belong to Wilford. Not just by his familiarity with the house, but by his conversation with the Chef just before Celine comes in in chapter two. As we know, the Chef calls him Private, and says “I don’t work for you anymore!” He then says in today’s episode that he’s been cooking for the people in the manor for 25 years, but he yells to Wilford that he quits. Why would he tell Wilford, wouldn’t it make more sense to tell the Butler at this point? But no, in some ways he still sees Wilford as his old boss…the old keeper of the manor. 
  • So anyway, the manor used to be Wilford’s home. And when he was a private in the army, Damien was at University (where you meet him) and Mark was trying to get his acting career started. Yes, in this universe, Mark is not just a YouTuber, but a flim/TV actor. This is evidenced by these photos from the Detective’s evidence room shown on @whokilledmarkiplier:
  • It is also worth mentioning that in the Meta Ending of A Date with Markiplier, Mark is an actor who is out on parole, working on a crummy side project. I think that these universes are connected, but more on that later. 
  • It isn’t easy to start an acting career, and you usually don’t make a lot of money in the process, so I think Wilford took Mark in and supported him while he was getting on his feet As he imitates Mark, he says “Forget all my FRIENDS or people who helped me along the way!” Wilford was one of those people. 
  • I also think that while Celine was friends with all of them, it was Wilford who loved her the most. While Mark in real life is a great guy, Mark in this story is kind of an asshole. Maybe Will and Celine once were dating, maybe Will never got up the courage to ask her. But Mark’s career took off and he married her himself before Wilford could. This obviously infuriated Wilford, and Mark grew distant. Then, to add insult to injury, Mark took the manor for himself, and even named it after his new stage name: Markiplier. This was the last straw for Wilford, and he secretly confessed his feelings to Celine, which she seemed quite happy to reciprocate and they had an affair. Maybe this version of Mark was once like the one in our world, but Fame and Money went to his head “Just look at my MONEY!” The Detective says that Wilford was also “squeezing him for cash” to fund dates with Celine. Will probably feels like Mark stole everything from him, so he doesn’t mind stealing back.
  • Damien, of course, being the politician and genuinely caring about all three of his friends, makes an effort to be on good terms with all of them. It is also likely that he is the one who introduced you to Mark. The two of you meet in college (You’re a DA, so you would have run in the same social circles), and when Damien and you both got jobs in the same city (LA, I assume) where Mark lived, the three of you formed your own friendship. 
  • Back to the affair: Mark obviously found out about it. Like Damien says at the end, he had been planning this for years. It’s even possible that Celine divorced Mark after he and Wilford had an altercation over her, and that it is after this divorce, which left her confused and hurt, that she sought solace in the arcane arts. Now, in this next matter, I was fairly close to the truth. Mark wanted to get back at Wilford, so he cam up with a revenge plan, and he hired the Detective to make sure that everything went down smoothly. However, the plan was not to discover who wanted Mark dead, but to frame the Colonel. And he used the Chef, Butler and Detective to help achieve that goal. 
  • There are multiple times they try to clue you into their plan, but they obviously don’t want Damien or Wilford to know about it, which is why they must be so covert. 
  • Mark’s plan was simple, but effective. Invite all of his closest friends to a poker night, fake his own death, and pin it on the Colonel. But what he didn’t count on was the supernatural getting in his way. 

There is some kind of force in that house. I’m going to call it Dark, but understand I don’t mean the persona of Darkiplier when I say that from here on out, I mean the entity that causes Darkiplier. Anyway, there’s no way of telling exactly how long Dark has been lurking on the manor, but it’s for at least 15 years based on George’s refusal to enter the house for that long. We also don’t know exactly how old our characters are. Suffice it to say though, Dark has been there for a long time. Again, this exposure to an extremely powerful evil entity could have contributed to Mark’s assholery, but we have no way of knowing for sure. 

  • From what I can gather, this is a force that feeds off of conflict. So when Mark and his friends began fighting, it grew stronger. When Mark began to plan his revenge, it grew stronger still. And finally, it grew strong enough to strike. 
  • “He trapped us in here with this broken shell and now there’s no way out” is what Damien says to you at the end. I think that Mark’s body is in fact dead, and Mark has made a deal with Dark. There are two possibilities here: The first is that Mark planned it that way from the beginning, to kill his body, blame the Colonel, and take Damien’s body for his own. The second (and I think more likely) is that Mark didn’t want to drag Damien and Celine into it, and that he didn’t even know about Dark’s force. In this scenario, Dark killed Mark and trapped him in the void where we see Celine and Damien at the end. Then, Dark gave him a choice (Dark loves choices): stay trapped in the void forever, or have Damien killed and take his body. Mark is already hurt and angry, and the Darkness has been feeding those emotions. When faced with that choice, he chooses to betray his friends to save himself. This is when the rest of the events unfold in the manor. 
  • I think that when the Butler says “the body is cold” to the Detective, he meant it. Mark’s body was dead at that point. But the Detective doesn’t realize just yet that Mark is really dead, he just thinks it’s part of the ruse. The Butler also suggests calling the police. He’s really concerned now, and while it was in their original plan to tell you about the plot, they’re unsure now of whether or not to tell you outright, so they resort to cryptic hints and clues. For all they know, you’re the one who really killed him, which is why the Detective acts like he trusts you but at times expresses doubts. As the tensions in the manor grow, Dark becomes more and more powerful, especially since he has Mark in his possession. He can manifest lightning when prompted, and he is able to steal Mark’s body and bring it to the void. Yes, I think that the Detective really was surprised when Mark’s body was gone. That wasn’t part of the plan. That was all Dark’s doing. With Mark’s mind AND body now in it’s possession, he is more powerful than ever.
  • Then, Celine arrives at the manor. Maybe she sensed something was wrong, maybe Dark lured her there, whatever. She arrives and her occult knowledge immediately tells her something is wrong. She then does exactly what Dark wants her to do and opens a conduit to his realm. Through this conduit, he possess her, and tries to possess you but you stop him, pulling out of the seance early. I think that it is your body that he had decided on, which is why “Celine” was so mad that you wouldn’t let her finish. 
  • While you’re outside with George, Dark uses Celine to take Damien’s consciousness into the void, and spits Mark back out into Damien’s body. Dark then takes control of Celine’s body but he is thwarted by George before he can accomplish whatever it is he needed a body for. Now with Celine’s body useless to him, Mark in control of Damien’s body and Celine and Damien’s minds in the void with him, Dark is in a bit of a pickle. Whatever he has, it isn’t enough, and he can’t just take it by force. He needs to be let in to fully take control (Celine let him in on accident in her seance, and then Dark manipulated Damien’s trust in her to trick him into letting him in as well). So he does what he does best: manipulation. 
  • When everything goes wibbly wobbly and you walk around the house hearing voices, that’s Dark’s influence over you. He doesn’t have total control because you haven’t given it to him, but he can lead you in the right direction. As you end up seeing the Detective’s frame job for the Colonel and then their confrontation, things get out of hand. Poor Wilford is slowly going mad at the possible loss of his friends, and he kills the Detective in a fit of rage. When you try to calm him down and take the gun, he accidentally kills you too. This is exactly what Dark needed to happen, another person to die. I think that Dark is a being that exists entirely by thought; he has some sway over the physical world but not enough to do anything major. But if a body is dead and the mind is all that remains, he can easily pull that mind into his domain, where it’s pretty hard to say no. 
  • So you die, and Dark takes your mind and traps it, in the same place he has Celine, Damien’s mind and Mark’s body trapped. And it is in this scene that we see the master manipulator that Dark is. I believe that while Celine and Damien’s consciousness are present in the void before you get here, Dark convinces them that this was all Mark’s doing. He insists that their only chance is to use you, that the three of you can fix it. Of course, he says all of this to fool them. They blame everything on Mark, and tell you so plainly. Dark wants you to share their thoughts so that you’ll agree to his plan. 
  • Your body is out there, broken, but still present. Celine says that she can send you back, and implies that this is only possible if you let Damien in so that together, you can stay alive. But that’s a flat out lie, it’s Dark that is really sending you out, not her. Your body is not ideal to him, but it’s all he has left now. The Chef, Butler, and Groundskeeper have left, Wilford is going insane, and the Detective doesn’t trust Damien OR Celine enough to listen to them. But you do. (That’s why Damien’s character is so appealing to us, it’s why they designed him to make us want to trust him. If we trust him, and he trusts Celine, then we’ll do what Celine says.) All Dark wants is our body, and the only way for him to get it is if we let him in. When Damien says “let me in”, the screen glitches for a moment. Up until then, it was Celine and Damien talking, but in that moment it was Dark. Reaching out to you. Beckoning you to just. let. him. in. 
  • Celine then says that this is a choice. This is also Dark speaking through her. Dark is obsessed with choice, but not just any choice. He uses the illusion of choice to get what he wants. When he made Mark choose between living in Damien’s body or being trapped in the void forever, there was really no outcome that would work in Mark’s favor. And either way, Dark could have used it somehow. In ADWM, he gives the illusion of offering more choices than Mark ever did, but only one choice will continue the story. And according to Mark in his livestream, originally the links at the end of that video were supposed to all go to the same place. He doesn’t offer choices, not really. He manipulates you into thinking you’re choosing what you want, when really it’s he who’s getting what he wants. 
  • And it works. You let him in, he sends you back, and you get to see the shattered remains of Wilford’s sanity crumble completely. Then, Dark reaches for Damien’s cane, and looks in the mirror. He has a body now, but it’s broken. A reanimated corpse (a zombie, get it? It was more than a joke!) that he doesn’t even have enough power to control on his own. He is forced to keep Damien (and possibly Celine) captive in his mind to maintain enough power to keep the body running. But he doesn’t need you anymore, he got all he wanted from you. He traps you in the mirror, and leaves you there, because that’s what social manipulators do: they get what they want out of you and then abandon you. Dark’s mannerisms when in this body are so similar to Damien’s because pieces of Damien’s personality poke through the facade. 

But in the end…

The Detective wasn’t wrong, it was more complicated than “It was Colonel Warfstache in the library with the candlestick.” Markiplier either killed himself or was killed by Dark, but his mind lives on in Damien’s body. Wilford, devastated at the loss of his friends and the blood on his own hands spirals into madness, The Staff leave the house, The Detective is dead, and you…

Your body is dead, possessed by a bitter spirit who didn’t get everything he wanted. So he goes after who started this whole mess in the first place…Markiplier. He follows Mark, fueled partly by Celine and Damien’s newfound hatred of him, fueled partly by his own desires as a parasite to keep feeding and growing, and pesters him to give him back Damien’s body. But Mark has learned his lesson and won’t let him in again. So Dark, now using the name “Darkiplier” turns to the next best thing…his fans. 

*Applauds* 

Wow @markiplier, you really outdid yourself this time! Thank you for this great experience, it was truly a pleasure to witness. 

Thank you everyone for reading not just this theory, but my other theories, as well as those on @wkm-theories that I helped compile. Thank you also to @valleyofrogues for creating wkm-theories and inviting me to help admin it, it’s been a blast! And don’t think we’re stopping today, we’re going to keep responding to your questions, compiling your theories, and share our thoughts with you throughout October. Something tells me this story isn’t over yet…

I know a lot of people are upset that we didn’t get to see Dean carry Cas’s body into the house—and don’t get me wrong, I wanted to see it too; but can you imagine them actually trying to film that scene? It would’ve been impossible!



Attempt 1:

“Okay—just jump up here” Jensen says, squatting down some and holding out his arms.

“No way!” Misha yelps instantly, backing up a few paces.

“Why not?”

“You’re gonna drop me!”

“I won’t drop you!” Jensen scoffs, opening his arms wider now and motioning for Misha to move.

“Hell no! As soon as I jump, you’ll drop me.”

“I’ve carried you before, man. Did I drop you then?”

“That was for photos and shit—two seconds tops. This is a whole scene!” Misha argues, putting his hands on his hips.

“C’mon, guys! Are we doing this or what?” Phil calls out from somewhere behind the monitors.

“Yep!” Jensen answers quickly and then motions to Misha again—this time, with an urgent look on his face.

Misha rolls his eyes but eventually moves in closer, bracing one hand on Jensen’s shoulder before throwing his own body into the air.

Jensen grunts.

They both immediately tumble to the ground.


Attempt 2:

“Dude—why are your arms around my neck?”

“I don’t want to fall again!” Misha whines, looking warily towards the gravel as Jensen scoots along.

Jensen breathes out a strained laugh at that . “Yeah, but you’re supposed to be dead. This is kinda killing the illusion.”

“I don’t think so” Misha mutters, obviously choosing to be difficult now.

“Seriously, dude? I can’t carry dead-Cas inside, bridal-style!” Jensen huffs, shifting his arms a little to try and keep Misha’s weight in the air.

“Why not? You carrying me to my death bed is pretty much the same as you carrying me to the marriage bed … especially on this show.”

Jensen quickly drops Misha again.


Attempt 3:

Jensen is out of breath—and his back is hurting like a mother fucker, but he hunkers down to lift Misha up once more.

And this time—Misha slumps his body backwards and completely relaxes his muscles, which nearly breaks Jensen in two.

Oof! God—damn!” Jensen grunts, trying desperately to step forward across the dirt and grass. “It’s like—ugh—carrying a—agh—a sack of wet leather!”

Misha slits one eye open and smirks at his costar. “You’re so sweet, Dean. This is why I fell for you in the first place.”

He’s prepared to be dropped this time, and he laughs as he rolls out of Jensen’s arms.

“What’s goin’ on, guys?” Phil yells out across the clearing.

“Nothin’!” Jensen wheezes, bending his body over his knees as he tries to catch his breath. “Just—just need a minute!”

A second later, Jared is bounding up to them. “Hey, y’all okay?”

Misha chuckles and goes over to pat Jensen on the back. “Yeah—someone just needs to spend more time lifting weights.”

Jensen immediately sneers up at the other man. “And someone else needs to lay off the pizza!”

“How about I be the one to carry him in?” Jared says suddenly—loud enough for Phil to hear it too.

“We could try that” Phil says, sounding frustrated and just eager to get this scene over with.

“What?” Misha yelps. “No way! No, no, no, no, no! No way Jared is carrying me!”

“Wha—why?” Jared asks, feigning some puppy dog innocence that is damn near Oscar worthy.

“You know exactly why!” Misha insists, taking several steps backwards to be out of the moose’s long reach. “Phil! You can’t be serious! Jared is just going to throw me in the lake if we do it this way!”

Jared’s face bursts into a giant grin, and his eyes sparkle like a Disney character whose wish just came true. “The lake! I didn’t even think of that!”

Misha groans loudly, and Jensen is laughing– all while Phil is angrily rubbing his temples behind the monitor.


Attempt 4:

“Are we ready yet?”

“One more sec, Phil!” Misha answers, turning back to look at Jared and Jensen with a face of warning.

“How about we both carry him in?” Jared suggests, and it sounds genuine but Misha still isn’t falling for it.

“No! Not gonna happen! Then you’ll both just throw me into the lake!”

Jensen rolls his eyes but he can’t stop himself from smiling. “No we won’t, man. Seriously—we’re losing the light here. We need to get this done.”

“I know that! Don’t you think I know that? But this is my dead body we’re talking about and I need to make sure it’s respected!”

“We’ll respect it” Jared insists.

“Since when have you ever respected it?” Misha counters.

“Okay! Alright! Just… Jared, get back there—we’re gonna try this again the way it’s scripted, okay?”

Jared holds up his hands in surrender. “Fine, fine, but I’ll be over here if you need me.”

“We won’t need you” Misha warns, knowing Jared’s deviousness all too well and it’s starting to make him break out in hives.

Jared laughs but finally backs away, until he’s far off on the other side of the set.

Jensen then takes a deep breath. “Okay, man. Let’s go. Let’s do this.”

Misha nods, and they both seem determined now.

With a heave and some careful balancing, Misha is once again in Jensen’s arms and Jensen is once again, huffing his way to the front door of the cabin. He’s huffing a lot … he sounds like he’s in pain.

“You okay?” Misha whispers, trying not to look up or move his mouth much—because, he is dead after all.

“Fine” Jensen wheezes shortly, but he doesn’t sound very convincing.

“You sure?” Misha asks again.

“Shh!” Jensen snips, trying to concentrate.

Misha finally peeks up at him. “Your face is really red.”

Jensen doesn’t answer, he just strains to keep Misha in his grasp.

“And your veins are popping out of your neck.”

“I’m acting” Jensen finally grunts.

Acting—constipated?” Misha asks.

“Shut up!”

“Ow—okay, now you’re pinching my ass!”

“Well, I need to hold onto something!”

“You need to hold onto my ass?”

“It’s got the most grip.”

“Okay … okay … now that just tickles!” Misha starts to laugh, squirming a little and it eventually  throws Jensen off balance.

“F—fu—fuck!” Jensen wobbles to one side and sends Misha rolling dramatically  onto the ground.

“I can help!” Jared yells out, sounding so excited, he might just burst.

“No … no, that’s alright, Jared” Phil cuts in, just as Misha is lifting himself from the dirt. “We’ve been talking and we think we’re just going to cut this scene. It’s uh … it’s not working out.”

With that, Misha throws his fist into the air victoriously, and Jensen drops exhaustively to the ground with the overwhelming relief—and Jared’s disappointed moans can be heard all the way on the other side of the lake; echoing out “Aw, man!”  and “Damnit” and lamenting all the glorious opportunity that he’s just lost.

bit of a rant

ya know what im really tired of?

fandoms demanding ships from show creators/crews

are ships.. really so important that you’re gonna just harass the people that gave you this material in the first place. make them hate fandoms in silence and worse make them hate what they create? this is especially irksome when its directed towards a)disney shows and b)shows with heavy plot. im not really directing any of this towards any show in particular mind you, theres far too many fandoms going after this trend to single any out at this point, there are some high contenders though.

more under the cut because this rant ran away from me and became way longer than intended

‘Let the past die. Kill it, if you have to. That’s the only way to become what you were meant to be.’ - (This does not mean what you think it does....)

I haven’t written many original posts recently, but given what has happened today, expect quite a few over the next couple of days.

My first post is about the quote above. I wanted to just let my feelings settle a bit before writing this, but it just happens to be the first thing I noticed.

For those unfamiliar, I wrote a post a couple months ago about Kylo Ren and his motivations. It pretty much sums up what Lucasfilm presented to us in this trailer, as far as where Kylo Ren is, psychologically speaking, at the end of The Force Awakens. I would REALLY recommend reading it in order to understand where I am coming from concerning this post.

http://sakurau121.tumblr.com/post/157962305035/you-know-what-the-really-ironic-thing-is-with-kylo

As many of us suspected, the central theme of ‘The Last Jedi’ seems to be indeed that of finding one’s sense of identity

With the above quote I found myself viewing it in a very different light after watching the trailer a few times.

It’s partially to do with the tone of Kylo’s voice. He’s not angry, not even sad exactly. He almost sounds like he is advising someone. And the language also suggests that, when he talks about ‘what YOU were meant to be’, to me this alludes to the fact that he is either being metaphorical or speaking directly to somebody else.

This is purely my own speculation, but in my mind, he is actually speaking to Rey. This line might have been put in simply for the trailer and doesn’t actually exist in the film, but I think it’s part of a conversation. A conversation while Rey and Kylo are connected through the force? A conversation after Kylo reveals Rey’s past, including what happened to her family? Maybe. These are all possibilities.

But why would I jump to this conclusion? After all, isn’t he simply talking about killing his mother and uncle, after having killed his father?

Actually, I say no.

And it’s for a very simple, logical reason that has nothing to do with sentimentality (although I, like many of you out there I suspect, did indeed tear up when Kylo’s thumb hovered over that button which, if pushed, would end up killing his mother).

It comes from comparing TFA with this trailer. You have to take into account of what has happened in TFA and how that has changed everyone. I don’t actually think Kylo is repeating himself here, that I believe is misdirect but again I might just be overthinking.

Kylo Ren says in the official trailer for TFA that ‘he will finish what Darth Vader started’.

Originally posted by star-wars-is-life

Throughout Episode VII, Kylo Ren is constantly emulating his grandfather, most likely because he wants to be like him. He cherishes Darth Vader’s crumpled mask like an old relic in a museum and wears his own mask proudly at the beginning of the film.

Now let’s compare that to this trailer. What does he do when he says -

‘Let the past die. Kill it, if you have to. That’s the only way to become what you were meant to be.’ 

What does he do?

Originally posted by boomdafunk

He destroys his mask.

In other words, he destroys his old self. The old self that emulated Darth Vader, that was trying to be like the grandfather and hid behind a mask.

This is incredibly literal as this is what the trailer actually wants you to see. The first interpretation one could logically form. And you see how Kylo Ren is doing a complete u-turn here. He is literally doing the opposite to what he did in the TFA trailer. You miss it perhaps because of the impact of what happens soon after this shot. But this point can be expanded upon, as I did in my previous post above.

Kylo Ren, Ben Solo, whoever he is, is trying to find his sense of identity. But he is no longer satisfied with trying to find it by looking into the past, by looking into his family’s history. This INCLUDES Darth Vader, not just Luke, Leia or Han.

I think he is in fact turning his back on his own lineage. Because he thought it would be enough. He thought that by finding out his grandfather was the powerful Sith Lord Darth Vader, he would be able to answer the question of why he could never find balance within himself.

Instead?

He’s even more lost now than he was before. He knows that the answer no longer lies with Darth Vader.

So how does this connect to his dialogue?

Because this mirrors another character’s trajectory. And I believe he says these words to the said character later in the film, when he realizes his past mistake.

Originally posted by starwarsfilms

Rey.

Why? Because she is still struggling, just as he is, with finding ‘her place in all this’. In other words, finding her sense of identity.

What I think is truly amazing is that somebody else in this sequel trilogy has already said these words before, or at least something to this effect.

Originally posted by bruceewayne

‘The belonging you seek is not behind you, it is ahead.’

Phrased completely differently but when you put that next to -

‘Let the past die. That’s the only way to become what you were meant to be.’

Yes, I know I cut a piece of dialogue out but it’s clear what is happening here, and in fact what is happening throughout this trailer.

Kylo and Rey’s paths are not just similar.

They are one and the same.

This is why people have come away from this trailer questioning whom Snoke is referring to. Because in a way it doesn’t matter. The point Lucasfilm is making here is that ‘Rey and Kylo are two halves-’

And you can finish off the rest of that sentence.

Now back to what I said at the beginning of this post. I think we will find out more of Rey’s past, but my daydreaming self is saying that Kylo warns Rey, just as Maz did, to not let her past completely inform her future. Otherwise, she could end up like him, misguided and lost. When he says ‘kill it if you have to’, this could be on a figurative level or it may allude to Rey’s dark origins (stay turned for that post).

If what he’s saying is basically the same as what Maz recommends to Rey, then what does that say about Kylo? What does that say about the light and dark, if they are essentially saying the same thing? :-)

So what do you guys think? Let me know through comments and reblog and check out for more posts in the coming days. This is such an exciting time to be part of this fandom and I love you all very much! You make the experience a hundred times more moving and fun! I nearly screamed at the end of that trailer and for a minute thought I was genuinely hallucinating. Gobsmacked, speechless, is best way I can describe it.

The “Misdirection” Wars

Why the “GA” or “Surface” Interpretation Totally Gives you the Red-Herrings

For two days now I’ve been seeing way too many people crying “misdirect” at, well, the entire trailer. Which is frankly silly because I’ve no doubt that he THEATRICAL TRAILER = exactly what the movie is going to be about. That doesn’t mean there aren’t red-herrings ala Jedi Finn from the TFA trailer, the only red-herring I remember. The TFA trailer was pretty straight-forward in introducing the main players (”I’m no one” Rey, “I was raised to do one thing” Finn and “I’ll finish what you started” Kylo) and giving you a feeling of what the movie was going to be, but I digress…

There are a few red-herrings in the trailer for TLJ, they just aren’t what everybody’s up-in-arms about all over the internet. The GA got two big things from the trailer: Kylo is going to kill Leia and Rey is going to join or at the very least be tempted by the dark side. That’s the surface interpretation and it’s absolutely what Lucasfilm intended people who were only going to watch the trailer once and haven’t been obsessing over this shit for two years to take from it, amirite?

Red-Herring # 1: Kylo Is Going to Kill Mommy

They used a combination of Han’s murder in TFA and Carrie’s tragic and untimely passing as a means of suggesting that Kylo kills Leia because we all know Kylo already did it once and Carrie/Leia won’t be in IX. That said, for us spoiler-fiends there are a whole slew of reasons why we already know that he totally isn’t going to kill his mom, most notably the fact that he has his Act I stitches and Leia survives into Act III on Craft. But, that said, on a one-time viewing the trailer totally gives the surface impression that Kylo’s going to pull that trigger (he did kill daddy, right)? That’s the red-herring, the surface interpretation is that Kylo is going to shoot her while the clip is actually about outlining his internal struggle and really ins’t about Leia dying at all. It’s introducing what is going to be one of Kylo’s major plot-points in TLJ: the struggle, once again, to jump of the self-destructive “kill the past” path and take on a new goal.

Red-Herring # 2: The Infamous Hand

This is the big one, no doubt. Why people are so fixated on discounting it is a totally different story, but either way the surface-read is that Rey is going to go off with Kylo and join the dark side. This time around they’re playing with Empire expectations like Vader’s request that he and Luke overthrow the Emperor together, but a second watch of the trailer quickly reveals that’s not what’s happening at all. In TFA Kylo told Rey “You need a teacher, I can show you the ways of the Force”, so this bit of the trailer is not only an extension of that, it’s also a response to Rey’s line of FORESHADOWING (not misdirection) that will be heard earlier in the film, possibly around a campfire to either Luke or Chewie. Twice in this trailer she says she needs help controlling her powers and finding her way. The trailer answers at the end not with Luke’s hand, but with Kylo’s. The red-herring is that Rey is going dark, the truth is either that Kylo is reaching for the Light or the two of them, disenfranchised by their individual mentor’s inability to guide them, are trusting in each other to find a new way together.

Why TF Aren’t People Talking About This?

External image

The biggest thing about this trailer that people really aren’t talking about enough is Luke and Snoke’s big reveal about the core of Rey and Kylo’s relationship: they share something, something ancient and potentially very dangerous that was destined to bring them together in some manner from the get-go. The “raw power” their mentors make reference to is what fascinated Kylo about Rey in TFA and probably what encouraged his offer to help her. This reveal is without a doubt the biggest spoiler in the trailer because it outlines a dynamic that has been debated with tooth and claw for two years. The truth? They’re equals that are both harborers of “raw power” and “strength” that Kylo was either unable to control or embraced in the past, while it just awoke in Rey, and like Kylo said, “you need a teacher”.

So at the end of the day ya’ll who are focusing on the edits and calling misdirect at everything are missing the point: the surface-read of the trailer is just that, a surface-read, the same surface-read that led people to cry “Jedi Finn” just because Finn used a lightsaber. The trailer absolutely establishes the feeling of what the movie is going to be (and what the major character struggles will be), so don’t get caught up in the irrelevant details. Yes, Kylo is going to struggle and continue to be torn apart. Yes, Luke is going to be scared of Rey. Yes, Rey is going to beg the heavens for help because she won’t be able to control that shit. Yes, Finn is going to infiltrate the FO and fight Phasma. YES, Kylo is going to offer his hand to Rey a second time. We just haven’t seen the results of these character struggles yet.
