why do you run

anonymous asked:

So the completely dazed and blown away look Killian wears on his face as Emma walks down the isle towards him just so happens to be the same one as when good ol' Zeus poufs him back from the underworld and he sees Emma run to him. These two cuties will never get old! What a dream team.

WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME, I’M CRYING.  That post-resurrection run hug is the greatest thing that has ever happened.  It will literally never be old, I could watch them stare at each other all day

Speaking of Zeus, do you think he’s invited to the wedding??  I bet he’d be all over that.  Or maybe he’s just like chugging ambrosia or whatever while he screams continuously, watching from Olympus

“I’ll protect you… no matter what” 


All this is @akeemi-life ’s fault !

Reading Percys camp report makes me wonder if other campers are kind of scared of Percy being on the archery range considering he has apparently shot other campers by accident.

Ariana went pale, mouth dropping into a frown halfway through a sentence. “Oh, no.”

“What?” Zach spun around sharply, searching for the cause of her distress. “What’s up?”

“It’s -”

“Hey, guys!” Percy Jackson stopped in front of them, quiver over his back and tenuous smile on his face. “You ready for some archery practice?”

Zach unintentionally took a step back, and Percy’s face fell. “Oh, hey, Perce. You’re, uh, you’re doing archery this morning? With us?”

Percy nodded, fiddling with the edge of the bow he was holding. “Yeah, Chiron said I should get some extra practice in, so…”

“Oh,” Ariana said. “Great.”

“Yeah…” Percy’s eyes darted to the side, and he raised a hand in a wave to someone over Ariana’s shoulder. “Sorry, I’m just gonna go say hi to Will.”

“No problems, man. Good to see you.”

“Yeah, you too.”

As soon as Percy was out of ear shot, Ariana leant over and said, “At least Will’s nearby for when he shoots someone.”

“Let’s go up the other end just in case.”

“That didn’t help Ben,” Ariana countered.

“Yeah, well.” Zach started walking towards the other end anyway. “At least it’s closer to the infirmary.”

Jumping on the "Humans are space orcs" train

So I read a bunch of these posts but one thing I didn’t see covered was those little repetive actions you sometimes do for no reason. Like, tapping your fingers, or shaking your leg, or repeating an action cause it didn’t feel right the first time. Stuff like that. Just like,

Alien A: Human-Sharon, what are you doing???

Sharon: huh? What do you mean?

Alien A: why do you keep running your fingers along the side of the control board?

Sharon: oh, that. I dunno.

Alien A: what?

Sharon: *shrugs* I guess cause I like it? It’s calming, I guess.

Alien A: are you in distress??

Sharon: no.

Alien A: then why …?

Sharon: Like I said, not sure why I do it. Just kinda do.

The alien walks away confused and decides that they’ll have to look into this more.

Thoughts on Kiran

dude you know what makes me sad about Kiran, the behind the scenes tactician/summoner in fire emblem heroes? the fact that they are some random person who was randomly summoned by Anna using breidablik. They could have been anyone, a college student going to school, a high school student studying quietly in their room, a mother out shopping- really you could give Kiran any backstory as long as it was a modern day one. It’s cool and all that they team up with Anna, Alfonse, and Sharena, but if I were in their shoes the first question I’d have after settling in is “when would I go back home?” The Askrians don’t have the liberty to open up gateways to our modern day world since there’s no telling when the Emblians will agree to closing the gateways without conquering the worlds inside them. That sounds like a scary situation for Kiran to be in. All of a sudden they were taken from their ordinary lifestyle to serve as a summoner/tactician for an army of a completely different world than the one they live in without guarantee of when they were going home. What if Kiran had something important to do or loved ones they needed to be with? How much time will pass until Kiran goes home?

A ‘Mortals Meet Percabeth’ fic, with a twist!!

“Hey, Kelly?”

Kelly looked up from her biology textbook, blinking at her best friend Olivia, who was definitely not doing the chapter review questions they’d been assigned. “What?”

“Do you think there’s something weird about Percy Jackson?” Olivia asked.

Kelly followed her to gaze to where Percy was sitting at the back of the room, leaning back in his chair. He wasn’t doing the review questions, either - instead, he was staring into the fish tank behind his desk. Kelly couldn’t see his face, but his dark hair was ruffled up and he was wearing his AHS hoodie with ‘Jackson’ emblazoned across the back of it.

“What do you mean, weird?” she asked, turning back around to Olivia.

Olivia shrugged. “I mean, just… there’s something strange about him.”

Why do you think Jake was running away from Dirk and complaining about him? I just can't imagine what was happening in his head to do such things, also I have a hard time believing that Jake loves Dirk romantically although I want to. I've been reading your analysis and I'm still not sure.

So remember when this was going on:

While Grandpa was off doing…fucking this:

Jake’s fundamental problem is the same as Grandpa’s: Escapism. In Grandpa, that misery and desire for escapism seems to grow into outright delusion–the guy seems plain old not that in touch with reality.

That’s how Jake operates when he has problems he doesn’t like and he doesn’t want to do better. Jake runs away because Dirk is needy and suffocating–the dude ain’t perfect, and he’s not any better at talking about his problems than Jake is because he likes to pretend they don’t exist by subsuming them into his (fake as shit) hypercapable persona.

But Dirk was needy and suffocating in the first place at least partly because Jake had already hurt his feelings pretty badly several times over, and led Dirk to believe he was most likely straight. Jake is aware of this!

But Jake would, in all things, prefer to resolve his conflicts in a way that doesn’t require him to acknowledge or address any way he might have possibly fucked up or hurt his friend’s feelings. That’s why neither of them can make actual progress on improving their relationship–Jake is as willfully ignorant about the core of their issues as Dirk is willfully burying them to keep up his front. And neither of them will likely talk about how Jake really felt about Brobot or about the whole AR situation for that exact same reason. Jake is busy immediately trying to forget any of that existed or could, in fact, have been parsed as a problem. Dirk is terrified of hearing Jake’s real answer. 

My friend Sburb (who I mysteriously can’t tag?? sorry about that) made a really good point about Jake’s planet–Xenon. Xenon can be used as an anesthetic, numbing one’s perception of the world, and that lines up with Jake’s modus operandi perfectly. It’s not that Jake doesn’t like Dirk, but that he is deeply terrified of confrontation and numbs himself to any possibility that may require it. Like, it’s no mistake that Jake’s innate sense of happiness and ignorance ramp up in intensity PRECISELY to match the most depressing thing he’s confronted with–Erisolsprite. Jake knows how miserable and angry Erisol is on some level, but acknowledging that would be really sad and require Jake to do something probably uncomfortable! So he doesn’t, and he pretends there isn’t a problem instead. Like. Really aggressively.

After like SIX MONTHS of enjoying Dirk’s company despite all these issues on BOTH their ends, long past the point when people who weren’t teenagers who don’t know what they’re doing would have sat down and said “Ok there’s definitely a problem here, let’s talk about it,”–yeah, all these underlying problems stress Dirk out enough that he gets to be too much for Jake and he runs away. Where he goes right on thinking about Dirk all the time, subjecting Jane to long rambles about him, and when Caliborn comes calling Jake spends his time making comments like this:

Which is A) Trolling Caliborn to some extent and really fucking funny, I love you Jake, B) Indication that Jake is now a lot more comfortable positioning himself as mlm than he was when talking to Jane, and C) That last one is obviously a reference to Dirk that Jake is making intentionally. Jake is, again, sharper than he’s given credit for. He knows what classpects are and he’s spent six months in a session where there’s exactly four of them. Even while running away, Jake is still making comments about Dirk that would absolutely be flirting if he were talking to the guy himself, and still largely thinking positively about him. 

Jake running away doesn’t reflect his feelings for Dirk. It reflects his obsessive need to avoid confrontation, and his willingness to believe anything he can tell himself to avoid it.

Hello, if you have time and are willing to answer this, could you tell me if you have any Annabeth/Rachel friendship headcannons? And maybe something with Sally/Poseidon too? I love you and your blog! Stay awesome x

Thank you so much!! <3 I’ll do these in two separate posts, so look out for the Sally and Poseidon one.

Annabeth and Rachel:

  • When Percy goes missing, Rachel is the one Annabeth goes to first, because if anyone should have answers it’d be her. Rachel can’t explain what’s happening, though, and the look on Annabeth’s face when she says, “I don’t know where he is,” haunts her dreams for months.
  • Annabeth tells her it’s not her fault that the Oracle’s gone silent, but Rachel is still so angry at herself for a long time over it, because this is supposed to be the thing that makes her special, the one thing that makes her worthy of Camp Half Blood, and now that it’s not working she feels like an intruder.
  • Rachel stays up with Annabeth when she can’t sleep because she’s sick with worry while Piper, Jason and Leo are on their quest and Percy is still nowhere to be found. 
  • They sit in silence for a few nights before Annabeth eventually says, “I’m sorry. For how I treated you when we first met. I was jealous, and I - I’m sorry. It was stupid.”
    Rachel looks at her, eyes wide. “It wasn’t stupid. You had every right to be jealous.”
    Annabeth looks like she’s going to hit her. Rachel braces herself for the punch, but it never comes. Instead, Annabeth laughs. It’s a small, shattered sort of laugh, but it’s a laugh nonetheless. Rachel laughs, too, and even when tears start to fall down Annabeth’s cheeks she doesn’t stop laughing. 
  • “I’m sorry, too,” Rachel says the next morning. She doesn’t know exactly what she’s apologising for, but Annabeth accepts it graciously.
  • They bond over having distant parents.
  • Rachel steals Annabeth’s sketching equipment sometimes and Annabeth always yells at her for it because, “Why did you take my ruler, Rachel? You never use a ruler! You just throw paint at the canvas and hope it sticks!”
  • Annabeth likes to go to Rachel when she needs to talk out an idea, because she’s just annoying enough to push her towards new angles without making her murderously angry. (Most of the time, anyway.)
  • Annabeth gives her painting supplies for her birthday (”So you’ll stop stealing mine.”) and Rachel uses them to paint her a portrait for her birthday. It’s Annabeth laughing, the sun haloing around her golden curls, and when she asks Rachel if that’s how she really sees her, she says, “Do you really have to ask, oh wise one?”
  • After the second war they message each other constantly, sharing mundane information about their days and school and how annoying Percy can be.
  • Rachel likes to send her the most annoying memes.
  • Annabeth likes to retaliate with bad puns. Always, all the time, puns.
  • They have sleepovers that mainly involve watching bad B-grade movies and pigging out on bad food. Percy’s not invited.
  • Rachel is secretly jealous of Annabeth’s hair.
  • Annabeth doodles her name on at least four pairs of Rachel’s pants. 
  • When they’re older they continue their sleepovers but swap out (most of) the junk food for wine instead.
  • Drunk Annabeth might be Rachel’s favourite, but she makes sure not to tell sober Annabeth that.

the most heart wrenching thing about ‘best of wives and best of women’ is when eliza sings “why do you write like you’re running out of time” because the audience and history knows something she doesn’t, that he is running out of time.
