I neither find that it’s okay or necessarily believe the theory that the ending we got was a result of malicious compliance with the network, because putting effort into creating the best send off you possibly can for the ending of a 15 year long show in order to allow it to finish respectfully and demonstrate effort and appreciation for fans and it’s legacy trumps creative feelings of pettiness. I understand it could be frustrating if this was the case, believe me. But it’s not confirmed by any creative (who are all in the majority of praising the ending/pushing back against fan criticism [aside from Bobo ❤️]) and ultimately doing the best they possibly could for this story and for fans matters more than a potential “fuck you” to the network (again not at all confirmed) that in the end reads as a “fuck you” to fans. If this was a case of the CW blocking creative input in order to meet market quota, then the creatives should have endeavored to do the best they possibly could with what they were given. I highly doubt that the CW demanded that Dean specifically die on a rusty nail from being shoved by a Vampire extra, or that Cas couldn’t be mentioned more than two times, or that John must be included in Heaven, or that Dean should tell Sam, “I’m fading fast” or even demonstrate a lack of significant emotion expressed for both Cas’ loss and return that he displayed not two seasons ago (maybe the network IS that homophobic and DID shut down any potential reading of bi Dean, maybe the writers did. The ultimate result is that it was out of character and did a disrespect to both Dean and Cas). Those were story problems. Jensen confirmed the story did not change due to covid, and that when the ending was first pitched to him it “didn’t sit right with [him].” Frankly, I’m done giving credit where it’s not earned. Bobo, Misha, and Jensen clearly gave immense respect and dedication to the story arc presented in 15x18, what happened from that point on was very clearly a mess. And the argument that it could possibly be malicious compliance doesn’t make me feel assured or supported in any way.
Muse A is trapped under rubble and Muse B has to leave them to die.
Her leg was trapped beneath a large piece of ceiling and from the burst of pain at each attempt to strain, Emily guessed her leg was broken at the least. There was no way she was getting free quickly. Yet, as the building continued to shake and rumble, dust falling and promising a repeat of what had happened to her, her husband refused to abandon her.
She would be touched if this wasn't so dire.
"Listen to me," she told him through teeth gritted in pain "this place is going to come down. You'll either end up trapped or I'll just slow you down. If you leave now you can still get out."
Emily didn't want to die here. If James didn't leave then they both would and she didn't want that on her conscious. Not when it would leave their children orphans.
So, she made the choice for them both. "I love you." With a scream as Emily strained with all her might, fingers splayed as she produced a shield, slamming it down hard and causing another piece of ceiling to come crumbling down. Just as she predicted, it landed squarely between her and James, cutting him off from her.
A joenicky modern au inspired by ”I wanna learn a love song”... joe (either a single dad or in an unhappy marriage with a shitty dude like in the song) hires a penniless guitar teacher nicky to teach him how to sing and play guitar so he an sing to his kids but always gets distracted and ends up wanting to hear nicky play and sing instead every time... and then.... They fall in love...
So I know Dana confirmed there wouldn’t be any musical episodes (which I get, that’s a LOT of work, I still don’t know how the su crew managed to put it all together as well as they did) but I do hope we get to see Luz sitting with Skara in a bard track class and bonding over types of music they like and Luz teaching Skara about different kinds of music from the Human Realm. Like, I really wanna see Skara go absolutely bonkers over seeing a French horn or an accordion for the first time.
well!!! i’m gonna b vibin for the rest of the night bc Just got some Good news!
basically my doctor contacted me saying that they noticed I was trans on their system and pretty much just. invited me to a consultation to a new service in my area called CMAGIC! It’s basically a service that hopes to expedite the process for people still on the gender clinic waiting list (which spans for years.....) and help them (meaning me) get things like hormones, voice feminisation, surgery referrals and hopefully name / legal gender changes!!!!
they’re gonna get back in contact with me probably soon-ish but god. i just... feel so fucking lucky omg???
“I’m not going to leave you behind. If need be, I’ll carry you.” Mal acting like a dad what?
Emily swayed on her feet. Every inch of her body seemed to ache and not for the first time she reflected that her usual method of charging in head-first was probably not the best idea. Still, Malekith was there to steady her, to pull her out when it seemed that she was going to be overwhelmed.
Perhaps there was something in him that could be a father after all.
All she could do was nod in consent to that, her knees buckling slightly. Pride told her to stand and walk herself but she also knew she couldn’t. Maybe she had to learn something about letting herself rely on others.
i hope it confuses people when i mention my lutheran upbringing AND my evangelical pentacostal upbringing, because it sure confused ME to go to the pentacostal church on sunday mornings and wednesday nights and also a private ultra-conservative lutheran school where i had to memorize the catechism every day.
anyway i can confirm that basically all american protestantism is the same, it literally doesnt matter if u sing hymns or dance around with flags if u still use religion as a tool to uphold the status quo and hate minorities lol
