Yes you could be sad about your pairings but:

  • Inappropriately timed confessions
  • At a ski lodge and somehow got stuck outside in the middle of the storm but hey look there’s a conveniently abandoned cabin I guess the logical thing to do is go in there and snuggle for warmth for the night
  • Seeing love interest in formal wear for the first time whaaat
  • Everyone thinks they’re dating and then they start wondering if they’re dating
  • Oops friend looks like the only place to sleep in this house is this small, twin-sized bed, guess we’ll have to share
  • Thunderstorm cuddles
  • Crashed the wrong wedding and now the best man/maid of honor is on my ass, but hey they’re kinda hot so???
  • Run into each other in a hospital while there for really stupid reasons
  • Both have same obscure taste in music and meet in a dark corner of a music store
  • Neighbors in a shitty apartment building that share a sense of solidarity for each other (also a mutual attraction because hotawhat)
  • Sleepy kisses
  • Inappropriately timed confessions
  • INAPPROPRIATELY TIMED PROPOSALS

that is all

In regards to the “Will Alaric compel Elena to forget/move on”…

I really hope it doesn’t happen, because Alaric is the one Elena depends on to help her keep fighting. He is the one who taught her how to fight, taught her to use weapons, taught her to work out. And he has helped her keep herself strong in soooo many ways, and I really really hate the idea of him compelling her (regardless of it’s consensual or not) because it goes against the foundation of their relationship.

Yeah the uninspired thing is getting me right now too. Even when I am inspired for an idea, I’m not inspired with the content (if that makes sense.) But oh did you really like the prompts? That’s great! A couple of them I thought I could find fun too

Yeah, does make sense. A problem I find is that I often have such a good idea for a scene or quote and then don’t feel like I write it without a proper backstory/drabble, if that makes sense?

abboz said: Aww that’s okay, I’m honestly shocked and surprised that you still remember so that’s sweet. I know you’re busy so no pressure, I’m being really slow myself with no one to read things when they’re done/as I go.


I’m busy and uninspired so that’s always an awful combo. Not to mention I really love the prompts and I want to do them justice.

I rewatched Teach Me Tonight and had a ton of new feelings about how wrong what Lorelai did was so …

onewordtest:

I kinda really wish Luke and Lorelai hadn’t just made up like just quietly go back to normal after the car accident fight, even if the rift went on for several episodes (into the next season, I think it was the longest fight they had!) and he froze her out at first, he still just forgave her in the end for it … because of her breakdown about Christopher (and I don’t mean he shouldn’t have but …) I mean … it says something about their relationship, I don’t know if it’s good. I don’t know what she wrote in her note but I doubt it was anything apologizing for what she did specifically since Luke stayed mad at her for so long. He had to have a reason to. In end it was just, can’t stay mad at someone that important to you forever … which is how life goes sometimes, so it’s okay

But GOD I still just wish Lorelai had -really- been made to apologize for the way she talked to Luke about his nephew. I mean, good god, if anyone ever talked to Lorelai that way about Rory there would be hell to pay. That just shouldn’t be okay. Even if Lorelai was right about Jess (she wasn’t) it is so out of line for her to talk about him to Luke that way, to basically insist that Luke shouldn’t be taking care of his own nephew because he isn’t worth it.

And she actually stormed up into HIS APARTMENT to YELL AT HIS NEPHEW, without his permission, without telling him why she was mad! That is SO many degrees of NOT OKAY. That is so many boundaries you just don’t cross! You are not his parent, you are not his legal guardian! You have absolutely no rights to do that! Especially in front of his legal guardian, pushing past him to go yell at his kid, in his home!!

If Jess had been home and Lorelai had started berating him, don’t even think about what Luke would have done, how much madder he would have been …

And that was just the start, not to mention everything else she said … “that little punk nephew of yours” , “you told him to come, you let him stay” , “everybody hated him!” , “you wouldn’t send him home” , “why didn’t you make him leave!”

Where do you get off, woman. Just where … it is all so not okay. Again, if anyone spoke to her about Rory that way, my god …

So, I’ve mentioned before how the first time I saw “Last Weeks Fights, This Weeks Tights”, I hadn’t seen the episode before and thought that the self help book was just Jess’ and that Luke was just yelling at Lorelai about her treatment of Jess …

And I REALLY wish something like that had actually happened on the show. I mean, Lorelai still thought he was and apologized afterwards so it kinda counts, but she always concedes to Luke supporting Jess a little sarcastically and I always want to slap her.

Because even if she is ever right, even if her feelings are validated, it is 500 different ways of disrespectful to talk that way to Jess’ legal guardian, to insult and degrade his nephew in front of him, to not recognize that Jess is someone Luke loves as much as she loves Rory and she should RESPECT THAT when in front of him, especially if she supposedly cares about Luke.

/rant end

The only good thing is the longest Luke ever stayed made at Lorelai pre-relationship was over her treatment of Jess and his relationship with Jess … So I am vindicated.

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover
