Xavi is eternal. Even when he is not at his very best level physically, he plays a kind of football that gives oxygen to a team, play, speed. He’ll always have that level. He is football. He is one of those players that has made Barcelona what it is today. Xavi Hernandez is the defender of the values of the greatest Barcelona team in history. He is the personification of a model based on effort and a commitment to touch and technique, that exquisite eye that Barcelona projected around the world. One of the big mistakes people make is to talk about who can be the next Xavi, to keep looking for him. We waste time constantly looking for the replacement for Xavi? There will never be another Xavi+
Okay, this is the world’s best Captain Swan fanvid! I have been begging every fanvid maker I know to do a vid to this song. LISTEN TO THE LYRICS! If this song was not written for Killian to sing to Emma, I don’t what is!
Lafayette is the world’s best cheer captain- they’re always the most enthusiastic when the Eagles play games against the infamous Redcoats. Also I’ve decided to hop on the nonbinary Lafayette train, because why not?
can we talk about how Hook was actually pouring all of his love and hope into that kiss inside Emma’s house and how that’s what the purest manifestation of what Hook’s love looks like while also being a hot af makeout session
Can we please talk about how all the moral soliloquizing in the world couldn’t get Steve to even consider changing his mind about the Accords, but the second Tony said signing would mean keeping Bucky safe, Steve actually picked up a pen??
Summary: Set after 3x20 “Kansas”. After saving the town one more time, Emma decided to return to New York, leaving her past behind. Three years later, she realizes that might be not have been the best decision.
You don’t know if it’s
fear or desire
Danger the drug that takes you higher
Head in heaven, fingers in the mire
Her heart is racing,
you can’t keep up
The night is bleeding like a cut
Between the horses of love and lust
We are trampled underfoot So cruel, U2
Killian noticed something wrong with his apartment door the
moment he walked into his corridor. Someone had picked his lock. He reached for the door and in a swift motion
opened it, reaching immediately for his gun behind his waist and entering his
He almost chocked at the sight of Emma standing in the
middle of his living room.
“What the bloody hell, Swan!?! I could
have shot you!” He shouted in absolute rage as he lowered his gun and put
in on a side table.
“So… how was your date?” She asked nonchalantly.
“My date?You broke into my apartment to ask about my
date?” He couldn’t believe what he was hearing. He took a few deep breaths
to calm down.
Emma Swan, former cop turned private investigator, doesn’t like getting involved - not with cases and definitely not with people. As a shady enterprise on the unfinished business - or conversations - of the dead begins to have dangerous consequences, she might be challenged on both counts.
Being a private detective is really one of the best gigs on the planet.
In a city like Storybrooke, anyway, where what used to be an idyllic small town has transformed in the last decade into one of the most profitable and expanding places in the nation, let alone Maine. Business is booming.
Especially for Emma Swan.
There’s something about cash flow that makes the people in this town willing to do what they ordinarily wouldn’t - like cheat on their husbands and skip bail. This applies to the people that profit off of Storybrooke’s newfound success, anyway. The people that don’t… well. The exacerbated class differences make the other side of town - where she works, private detectives need cheap real estate - that much more of a hot spot for the less glamorous crimes. Those aren’t as good for business.
Most of her cases are taken over the phone or online because of that. It’s one thing to get their hands dirty hiring her in the first place, it’s another to step foot in her side of town. She doesn’t complain, of course. The less Emma has to interact with people, she’s found, the better. They ask her to catch a cheating husband, she snaps a few pictures, and rent is paid for the month. Some guy skips out on a bail and her electricity bill is taken care of.
Most of the bail jumpers she’s able to take care of using the tried and true online dating method. Emma gets herself matched to her perp, they meet, and she drags him off to the station.
(Tinder really lasted longer than most people thought it would, funnily enough.)
