Tulips and sake

Hi. My name is Irene and I don't like people. Most of them. Also I study Japanese and I sometimes write fiction. When I grow up I want to be a Disney princess.

this means so much to me. so much

Okay but like actually this is the most thoughtful gift IN THE WHOLE WORLD.
It might seem to make more sense to give Ron the precious family heirloom (remember that Molly’s brother Fabian died in the First Wizarding War; Molly has held onto his watch out of sentimentality since then). But Ron is the sixth son in his (canonically financially-struggling) family. He’s been forced into hand-me-downs his whole life. If he’d gotten the watch with a dent in the back, he wouldn’t have appreciated it; he’d only have seen the flaw. And if his mum bought Harry a new watch instead of getting Ron one, Ron would have resented that. A new watch was a worthwhile expense to get Ron a rare taste of the luxury and individual attention he has always craved.
Harry, though. Harry has money; Harry has new things. What Harry does not have is family. Harry is an orphan. Other than one photo album and the invisibility cloak, he doesn’t have anything that came with family history attached. What Molly does here is give him that; she makes him part of the family, symbolically, by giving him an emotionally significant if physically imperfect item. She gives him love in a tangible form.

This makes me CRY

Even more sad: Molly didn’t just have one brother. She had two, Gideon and Fabian, and they were twins. They both died in the first war and Fred and George’s names are a deliberate remembrance of them. Molly is overbearing in protecting her sons and keeping them close, but losing her family isn’t an abstract threat to her. It’s something that’s already happened once. And she gives Fabian’s watch to Harry because he’s her kid too. He belongs in her family, and she’ll worry for him too, and fight for him, and afskfhgl I have so many herofeels for Molly Weasely the Supermum.

Look, I don’t doubt that these TV producers earnestly felt the deaths were necessary. But by not taking in account the added import of every queer character on television they did us all a disservice. Does this mean you can never kill off your LGBT characters? Of course not, you kill whichever characters you want, you heartless TV dream killing bastards – I mean, writers. But think, really think, if there’s another way to make the same point that lets a gay character live on and become a fully realized part of your show instead. In other words, try harder. We’re people, not plot points.

In a world that has placed lesbians at the bottom of the likelihood-of-happy-ending scale, the femslash community exists as a place where they are at the very top, more likely to survive than the heterosexual couples, where happiness exists by default and love is as simple as, ‘The only two female characters on the entire show are gay, and attracted to each other, and over the course of the story will fall in love.’

#I will never stop loving her face here #It’s like she knows she just acted like a dork in front of her future wife

The worst part is Myka’s face matches perfectly. In the second gif she looks like she’s indeed thinking ‘my future wife is a fucking dork’.

#really? #bc I read the second gif as like #wow #I’m going to fuck that dork tonIGHT

I love these tags XD

This post was what got me to actually watch Warehouse 13, because I thought they were actually married later in the series. I was not part of Tumblr at the time and did not understand the language.

I came into this ship thinking it was going to end well.

I was lured into the angst by our captains’ wonderful acting that actually allowed me to think it happened.

Root shivered against the cold, tugging her coat closed tighter as she made her way through the crowd toward her destination. She could feel eyes on her and discreetly glanced toward the reflection on a nearby store front to confirm she was being followed.
"Can’t stay away from me, huh?" The hacker asked, slowing her pace to allow the shorter woman tailing her to catch up.
"Just checking in." Shaw replied in a low voice, "Figured I’d return the favor." 
Root’s smile tugged wider, “Am I not visiting you enough at work, Sameen? Should I start bringing you food on your lunch breaks?” 
Shaw’s eyes narrowed slightly but she kept her expression mostly neutral as they continued walking in silence for a bit. 
"Alright, this is where we part ways…" Root said, a little sadly as she stepped down onto the second step down from the sidewalk. 
"What’s She got you doing?" Shaw asked lingering just above the taller woman. Her yes scanning quickly for cameras around them. 
"It’s a secret." Root said as she turned to face the other brunette. 
Shaw glowered slightly at the response. Of course it was a secret with Root and the Machine, it always was. A secret, a riddle… 
"Thanks for keeping me company." Root whispered, bringing Shaw from her thoughts as warm lips brushed her cheek. A wide smile, all teeth, flashed across Root’s face before she turned to quickly clear the rest of the steps and disappear into the crowd below.
Shaw watched her until she disappeared completely, an odd feeling tightening her chest.
