*pulls your face real close to mine* Listen. To. Me.
You fucking fight
I’m not american, I can’t imagine how terrified those who are LGBT+, POC, Disabled, Female, Islamic, and any other minority of the US must feel right now, despite how scared I am myself.
But you wake up tomorrow and you fight. You show that fucking orange dickbag that you will not go quietly. You will survive. You are smart, brave and important to your country no matter what anyone tries to tell you.
You fight to keep yourself safe, you fight to make your voice heard, you fight for your future, you fight for those around you.
This is not the end, this is the beginning of a long road ahead but I believe in you.
Stay safe, look out for yourself, stay informed, and survive just to spite them.
“…Your wife is a spy.
Her real name is Rosamund Mary Greta Bengtsdotter.
Swedish by birth and probably the most dangerous spy in the world.
She’s been operating deep undercover for the past four years now as your wife, for one reason only…“
y'all were joking that Sombra would reveal the gay characters, but that might be true af, because like she said in her origins video, she finds people’s weakness. During a match she could provoke the other characters by threatning to hurt their loved ones, and the way they reply can easily tell how much they care for their supposed lover.
Sombra: “That omnic monk might be useful to have under my control. I can easily hack him.”
Genji: “I won’t let you harm my master.”
Sombra: “It would be such a pity if Mercy’s valkyrie suit just happened to malfuction middair *giggle*”
Pharah: “Don’t you dare./While I’m here nothing bad will happen to her.”
Sombra: “In a blink of an eye, I can get rid of Tracer.”
Widowmaker: “Back away. She is my target.”
Sombra: *talking to Roadhog* “Let me try to find a picture of what your real face looks like.”
Junkrat: “Oi, leave my big lug alone.”
*smirking and deciding to be a little shit* Would that bother you Mrs. Lewis?
Of course not! I just want my boy to be happy.
Mom, seriously, no. Raphael is an asshole, I wouldn't--
*reaches over and puts a hand over Simon's* Simon, it's okay. You heard her. She doesn't mind.
B-but! *gapes, kind of horrified but also really fascinated by this turn of events* *looks between Raphael and his mother* But, what?
I'm sorry we kept this from you, Mrs. Lewis.
*After dinner, Simon and Raphael are alone in his room*
Now you have no excuse not to be out searching for Camille. You either 'have a gig', *gets into Simon's personal space like always* or you're with me.
*knocks on the door and opens it* Will you be staying the night, Raphael? *smiles and winks at Simon*
I'm afraid not, Mrs. Lewis. But thank you for having me. *Turns to Simon with a shit-eating grin on his face* I'll see you later, baby. *Kisses him on the cheek and then just leaves like nothing happened*
*frozen in shock thinking WTF???*
I knew it!
*Puts a hand on his cheek that is just barely tinged red and somehow manages to die a little from embarrassment* *mumbles* Well, that makes one of us...
1. Climon doesn’t happen or ends sooner than in the books. We need friendship Climon, not toxic as hell romance Climon. Like it was so bad, just don’t do it.
2. More Raphael, ‘nuff said
3. Magnus and Simon broship. This is necessary to life.
4. Clary stops being so destructive and grows up. I want her to take a look at the people around her and think before she does something. I want her to care about Simon like she did before she really got involved, where she cared about his safety and well-being.
5. I really want the Jace thing cleared up soon too. Book-readers know what I mean. That plot was just so awkward to deal with and I’m pretty sure it lost a lot of people in the books.
6. Simon redeems himself. The end of the last season has a lot of people of both sides of the Saphael drama, but Simon did do wrong by the clan and if we want to avoid some of that Mark of Cain shit then he’s gonna have to make up for it, which it looks like he’s gonna try.
7. Raphael eventually forgiving him. Simon needs to redeem himself, but Raphael needs to let him. Raphael is the kind of guy who does whatever is best for the clan, so I hope if Simon can prove he isn’t a threat, he’ll eventually forgive him. I don’t expect a 180 where he’s just like, “Welcome back, baby, don’t break anyone else out of prison and also you’re grounded for ten years. So, no mutts or shadowhunters.”
8. Saphael training sequences and Simon w/ the clan
9. Raphael and the clan not freaking after what happens after the boat (again, book-readers know what I mean) because they made up and bonded and shit
10. Saphael. I want love!Saphael but honestly I could live with it just being a broship right now and maybe Simon pining when he realizes he doesn’t love Clary anymore.
Okay, okay, but LISTEN. Clan Leader Simon and fledgling Raphael, like basically their roles switch but their personalities are mostly the same. Just imagine:
Simon trying not to crush on the new fledgling he’s training because god dammit undead libido needs to stop and he’s just barely keeping his fangs in
Simon being a goofy ball of sunshine but as soon as shit gets serious he’s Serious Vamp #1™ and handles it like he was born to be a diplomat
And he’s friends with everyone so he’s got a shit ton of connections and now that Camille’s locked in the basement, vamps and werewolves are getting along so much better
Raphael being Clary’s friend and she can tell he’s got a soft spot for Simon, and he’s basically the really salty best friend and she adores him for it and she cries and tells him he’s still the “same Raphael that shit talks random people on the street and always has a comeback and loves looking at expensive suits you can’t afford and always protecting everyone you care about” when he crawls out of his grave
Climon being The BrOTP™ with Clary being all, “you’d better look after my saltmate or I’ll have to stake you” and Simon taking it all in stride and being all cool (until he trips over himself) and reassuring her that Raphael is fine and offers to let her have visiting hours as long as she leaves her weapons at the door
Simon going with Raphael to tell his family after the war because he partially blames himself for letting Camille get to him and feels he deserves to get yelled at
But instead Raph’s mom, while not happy about it, she can tell Simon cares and asks for Simon to look after her mijo, Simon does not cry, he doesn’t (yeah he does, but not until they’ve left)
Simon teaching Raphael to have faith again, teaching him to hold his cross and rosary and to walk on holy ground and say G-d and Jesus Christ and pray (and I’m not crying, you’re crying)
And when the malec wedding crash happens, he goes and recounts it to Simon in calm detail and comments, “It was sort of like The Graduate” and Simon flips his shit because he loves The Graduate and he’s happy that his friend Magnus finally got his guy and Simon wonders if he’ll get his
Simon insists that Raphael teach him about pop culture and they spend hours watching movies together (and maybe making out during them, which makes Simon insist that they rewatch them because “we didn’t actually watch it, Raph! My eyes were on you!” “As they should be.”)
And when the betrayal happens, because Raphael has to choose between the Clan and what’s left of his mundane life, he still chooses Clary and Jocelyn because he loves them and he’s as loyal as they come and he’s only known the clan for a little while, even if they gave him a home and a new family and he’s falling for Simon (he’s swears to himself that he won’t let Camille harm him if it costs Raphael his life, well his unlife)
And Raphael just watches as the light dies in Simon’s eyes and it hurts more than the “I’m sorry we weren’t enough for you” and even the “I’m disappointed”
“I thought you were my sunshine, and I suppose this is when I turn to dust, because I just wasn’t enough. We’d barely begun before the end, and maybe you were heavensent, but so were fallen angels in descent, and now I just feel cursed and blessed.” Simon writes a bunch of tragic love songs and cries and pretends to be okay when doing business because he’s clan leader and he can’t lose it over an almost love (though he thinks maybe on his end it was all love and that’s what hurts the most, that it must’ve only been on his end).
But Raphael is feeling the pain too and distracts himself by hunting down Camille so he can kill her and Clary tries to stop him but realizes she can’t and instead insists on going with him since she couldn’t get any leads on Jace and they take Camille down together, but Raphael gets badly injured and Camille says a lot of emotionally scarring and nasty things, and he needs more blood to recover than the ridiculously small amount that he’s been drinking lately
So Clary calls Simon and tells him they’ve killed Camille even though Raphael tells her not to and Simon rushes over with blood bags and even though he hasn’t quite forgiven Raphael, he doesn’t want him to die and just says fondly, “For a such a smart guy, you think you wouldn’t almost die so much. How long am I gonna have to come to your rescue?”
And Raph is pretty out of it by now so he’s not even sure if he’s hallucinating Simon or not, so he replies, “For the rest of my life, I hope.”
my fav thing is when lance ends up annoying keith, and in a rage keith just ends up tackling lance and pining him down like “what’s your problem??”
and lance is just frozen like. oh. oh no. oh shit. what is his heart doing right now. stop beating faster just because keith is pressed up against you, all in your face, real close and looking pretty. fuck.
