in case anyone is interested, in order:
service station (gas station)
bottle of beer
can of beer
it sounds like the words little kids make up because the words are still too difficult to pronounce for them
no, it’s advancement
The pinnacle of linguistic efficiency!
I haven’t listened to this yet but I already know what it’s going to say. Does that make me a bogan? More importantly, do I care if it does?
Hey I’ve ended up with a spare ticket to see The Day of the Doctor at a Brisbane cinema tonight - anyone want it?
I was just in New York with Dylan and his mom and his mom was like “hey, this is my son and my son’s… fake dad.”
I fuCKING LOVE THIS ELVIS GIF
- fucking floor guy killing it on the sax
- the fuckers on the ladder
- jimmy-bob in the back dancing like a prospector who found gold
- the motherfucker who just appears swinging a trombone like he’s fucking fighting a swarm of bees
- and fucking Elvis hobbling around like he lost his crutches
Clever doormat stencil reads Come In/Go Away depending on which side it is read.
yeah because there’s this cat that hangs around outside Derek’s apartment, and it’s not like he means to adopt it, but it looked so straggly and underfed and he’s not a monster. so he started feeding it and then it wouldn’t leave and he’s only just started dating Stiles, so when Stiles comes around he thinks he should hide the cat because who the fuck adopts strays?
and of course the cat sneaks out of the room Derek locked it in because cats are sneaky and Stiles is like, um, you do know there’s a cat here, right? and when Derek explains that he thought Stiles would think it was weird, Stiles laughs and kisses Derek on the nose, tells him he’s always adopted strays, just that this time it’s not of the canine variety. Derek doesn’t want to laugh at the joke because he’s trying to stop Stiles from making dog jokes, but Stiles has this carefree grin on his face and he’s letting the cat rub against his legs and —
that’s when Derek realises he kind of loves Stiles. and then they have sex, locking the cat out of the bedroom and hoping against hope she has enough self preservation not to attempt to come in.
(afterwards, when Stiles opens the door to go to the bathroom, the cat runs into the room, takes up the warm spot Stiles vacated and curls up to Derek. Stiles comes back and he can’t even be mad because she’s hilariously adorable and Derek’s hair is all mussed, his limbs spread out on the bed all boneless and Stiles is like, yeah, okay. this could be our life.)
Derek’s looking at him standing in the doorway and he’s terrified that Stiles is going to leave now, that despite what he said, he only wanted sex and — and then Stiles is crawling back onto the bed, stroking the cat and saying to Derek: “you haven’t even named her, have you?”
and Derek shakes his head and Stiles kisses him and says, “not everything will leave you, you know.”
and Derek thinks, okay. okay, maybe he can have this.
I wore that costume to challenge the way New Yorkers think about superheroes — and bearded Sikhs like me
I settled on a rock in Central Park, the New York skyline behind me. A glassy new skyscraper neared completion in its stretch toward the skies. I was striking a few poses in my superhero costume when a young boy perched higher on a rock chimed in.
“Captain America does not have a turban and beard,” he said. He had a child’s curious tone. No malevolence.
“Why not?” I asked him. “I was born here. We could have a new Captain America who is Sikh or black or Hispanic.”
He thought about this. Finally, he conceded that yes, maybe a black or Hispanic Captain America would be OK. But his brain couldn’t make sense of it: Captain America in a turban? Captain America in a beard? He’d never conceived of such a thing before.
That’s exactly what brought me to this park on a beautiful summer day. To make fresh neural connections in our collective consciousness. To leave a new image on the hard drive of that boy’s mind.
This is my favourite thing today, it makes me want to do fanart of him and that is a rare thing.
EDIT: You can also buy prints of the Sihk Captain America here.
THIS NEEDS MORE NOTES.
Seriously this guy is such a beautiful human being <3
this dude wins halloween
I fucking love this. I feel like fucking Captain America would love this haha. You know if he was a real person…
steve rogers would 100000% support this. heck, it would probably even make him cry.
Derek knowing that epinephrine would make then stronger is hot
talk nerdy to me
About the only bit of Derek’s back story that I have liked so far this season is that he is obviously well educated and intelligent. Well… he’s got book smarts, anyway.
I want fic where he was actually a Paramedic in NYC. One of the best. As atonement for Paige and the Fire.
#I couldn’t save them, but maybe I can save everyone else
you hear that? That’s the sound of headcanon snapping into place.
HOLY SHIT SOMEONE GIVE THIS TO ME NOW PLEASE!
