#i think the most heartbreaking part #is that he knew #the moment he saw the paintings #he recognized her style #he knew her work #and he began to fall apart immediately #but held it together #just in case #but there she was #and what’s amazing about this #is that #irene is the woman who made him fall #and watson was the woman who caught him (via language-escapes)

#she terrifies men because she forces them into their true shapes #she is the sea there is no room for pretense in her #she will not allow anyone to render her less than what she is #she will not allow others to be anything than what they are #barbossa is a corpse and davy jones is nothing more than shell and bone and ruin dredged up from the ocean floor #’calypso’ is greek for ‘to conceal to hide’ and that is her root#she is the truth waiting to devour you from beneath
OH YOU LITTLE FUCKER
#oh my god #I’d forgotten this scene #this is why, isn’t it #this is why he always told her how special she was #how important #how brilliant #because he remembered the time when he was so callous #the time that, for all he knows, might have contributed to her crappy self esteem even more #the time he told her she wasn’t special or important #which coming from him is harsh #I mean the Doctor thinks everyone’s important #but in that moment #with a brain addled with heartbreak #and a heart aching for his Rose #he told her what she already thought about herself #and who knows #maybe that’s why she never believed him
But what if
there was a fic where Stiles is introducing his dad to Danny as his boyfriend for the first time, and instead of being like, “Oh, awesome, Danny’s a great kid,” Papa Stilinski is like, “You’re hard enough to keep on the straight and narrow as it is, the hell you’re dating someone with a criminal record who uses fake IDs.” (Because if Stiles knows about Danny’s record, who do we think he stole that file from?)
And there’s some woe and miscommunication because Stiles takes the disapproval hard, and his dad says it’s not about him dating a boy, but then again, his dad also told him he couldn’t be gay because of the way he dressed. And Papa Stilinski is being really firm about this because jfc, Stiles already had a classmate file a restraining order against him, he knows Stiles is often up to no good, and for all Stiles has always been super curious and gotten in trouble, he remembers back when jokes about Stiles being a delinquent were actually jokes.
(Presumably, Danny is just sort of wandering around in a daze somewhere going, “But I’m Danny. Everyone likes me.”)
And then, idk, eventually the Stilinskis hug it out, and Papa Stilinski grudgingly allows that Danny made a youthful mistake and doesn’t get in trouble anymore, and there are Danny/Stiles smooches or something.
#This needs to happen #it needs to be a thing that exists #Papa Stilinski will complain that Stiles should find someone more appropriate#someone mature enough to not break the law and use a fake ID #and Stiles is a smartass so he’ll say something like — WOULD YOU RATHER I DATE DEREK HALE? HE DOESN’T USE A FAKE ID #And his dad would splutter and be all shocked because let’s face it — Derek would be almost his worst nightmare #so he can maybe concede that Danny isn’t so bad #And I want to see Jackson get all pissy on Danny’s behalf and bitch at the Sheriff for not approving of Danny and Stiles #Of course the Sheriff would be confused because doesn’t Jackson hate Stiles? #Jackson would roll his eyes because duh…of course he hates Stiles #But Danny is a fucking catch and Jackson is deeply offended that anyone would disapprove of Danny #So he’s totally fighting the Sheriff’s opinion because Stiles would be fucking LUCKY to land Danny #And Jackson can’t understand why Stiles’ dad isn’t embracing Danny with open arms #Because he doesn’t think Stiles could ever do better so clearly the Sheriff should agree (via slythatheart)
#I actually can’t with this #His face at the end #He looks so sad #Like how could you possibly doubt how important you are #He’s been through time and space #Seen it all #900 years of exploring things you wouldn’t believe #But to him #Humans are still amazing and wonderful and IMPORTANT
#the sad part is that she’s 100 percent right #and he’s wrong #but he keeps telling himself this over and over #secrets protect us #secrets make us safe #until the point where he actually believes it #you can see it in his eyes #and she finds that to be crazy #to me #this is probably one of the doctor’s scariest moments #because he says something so completely terrible #and yet it believes it completely (via jennalouisa)

# Oh my Gallifrey # The Doctor’s face # He’s seen humans before and traveled with them for years on end # But the way he looks at Rose this early in their partnership is different # It’s the gaze of a man besotted # It’s the gaze of a man who’s done things he doesn’t believe he can ever be forgiven for and yet # This gorgeous woman standing in front of him gives him hope # She’s clever and brave and she’s here with him no matter how gruff he’s been or how he’s subtly tried to push her away (via gallifreyburning)
No Doctor will ever look at Rose like that. Ever. Nine was in complete awe of that woman, completely and totally in love. That look screams of reverence, mystification, admiration, adoration and love. He’s been turned into a lovesick teenager who writes songs on loose leaf while strumming his guitar. Inside his hearts are singing out to her, aching to be in her arms.
This was truly the Doctor who fell in love.
This was also the doctor that died for love
The only Doctor born from hatred and war
And redeemed through love
So much that the thing that he chose to die for
Was love itself.
Ten was born from love
And died half-mad.
Eleven was born half-mad
And we see where he is now.
But nine was born in fire
And love is what made him finally stop burning.
ALL OF THE ABOVE IS SO PERFECT MAKES ME WANT TO SCREAM OK
he was so absolutely in love with her.
they with forever be my OTP.
Welcome to the new age.

#he looked into the abyss; looked into the heart of a nuclear explosion in the moment of his self-sacrifice and was utterly at peace #all walls stripped; just him in his iron body floating in the void with nothing more; no further possible way to redeem his existence #and so the abyss took root in his body in that moment of utter absolution and vulnerability #and now he can’t sleep; now he has nightmares #because he is the walking dead; he never meant to come back from that abyss; how do you come back from that kind of peace in self-messiahood #and live in your imperfect sullied unworthy body once again? #he’s falling; but it’s tony and all that means is that he has to build himself new wings; a new body to take him beyond now #to bind the metal to his flesh so that it is no longer flesh; so that he will never be without the suit again #over and over he tells us; he defines himself as inseparable from the suit because he is terrified of looking at himself without it #so he will take extremis to bind it to himself #because now in the aftermath he can’t go on in this human body#he needs to rewrite his coding because the old body is trash; is an antique; is worthless #the abyss took away his last ability to function within it #so he will keep sacrificing himself; he will martyr his own body to the cause of the future #tony stark is a futurist and he will lay himself on the altar he needs to build himself #fucking hubristic egomaniacal motherfucker #he won’t be human anymore; but that was the point #that was always the point with tony stark ever since the first film; ever since the cave #tony stark doesn’t deserve to be human; tony stark doesn’t deserve anything unless he saves everything #because he has the capacity; the genius and the wealth and the will #and that power gives him the responsibility #to do it #and do it he will #because the future belongs to humanity and he is gonna fucking build it for them inside his own flesh #tony stark is breaking my heart blog (via okayophelia)
#this is kind of terrifying tho #b/c we saw in previous episodes how absolute naomi’s control of castiel was #when she ordered him to kill samandriel he didn’t hesitate for an instant #but even with that kind of influence she still had to make him kill ‘dean’ a thousand times over before she declared him ready #is this what he was doing for the entire span of time between 8.10 and 8.17?? #i wonder how many attempts it took before he could actually make himself do it #how many times before he could stab dean in the heart and not want to throw up afterwards #how many times before he could do it without hesitating #and even under that amount of conditioning when it comes to the real thing he STILL can’t go through with it #castiel loves selfishly and possessively and destructively but he also loves absolutely #it’s the only way he knows how #and the full force of that love is focused on one single fragile insignifcant human being #dean should be terrified
#but can we talk about how Naomi had Castiel practice just this#she knew his biggest weakness was Dean#and she knew if anyone would try to stop Cas it would be Dean#and he had to do it so many times to get it just right#can you imagine the complete and utter breakdown Cas had during the first few kills#he probably couldn’t even do it#imagine Naomi having to hand over hand teach him how to kill the person he worked so hard to save#and cas crying the entire time (via octopifer)
