bucky receiving conscription notice
bucky desperately trying to apply for conscientious objector status so he can stay home and look out for steve
bucky being rejected and told to report to basic training no later than tomorrow at seven am
bucky swaggering in, throwing an arm around steve’s shoulders, telling him he enlisted to fight the nazis, trying to ignore the way that steve’s face falls when he hears the news
…and one day, you’re gonna wake up and realize that "I don’t love him anymore."
You want to talk about what his dad did?
I don’t think, as a caveat and disclaimer, that Blaine’s dad ever did wake up and not love Blaine anymore. But Blaine’s perception is what we have, and what matters. Blaine believes his dad tried to make him straight. He was, maybe, 13. To him, it was a kind of rejection, and he’s been dealing with it silently for six years, nearly. For Blaine, there’s a very real chance that people will one day realise that he’s not what they want, or expect, or love.
And then they’ll leave him.
Not to mention…that’s pretty much exactly what happened to him when it came to his friends. We have no indication he’s still in touch with people from his first school. (He straight out said he didn’t think anyone cared about his issues there). The Warblers who he thought were his friends turned on him and sent him to the hospital. He hung out with the seniors of New Directions when he transferred and well we all remember how he felt at the beginning of his senior year.
And there’s also Cooper, whose approval and affection Blaine experiences as conditional and often randomly mean. Cooper criticizes and tears him down, over and over. (And what on earth are Cooper’s core wounds here? Can we please meet the parents?) So Blaine maybe expects this treatment from the people who [say they] love him. It’s not that he doesn’t believe Kurt loves him, but that he doesn’t believe love can be this strong, unconditional thing when it’s directed at him. And this makes me so fucking sad for Blaine, because I have experienced this in my own life, and that feeling that you have to perform well and be perfect and pleasing 25/8 to deserve kindness, affection, and love that [feels like it] is always at risk of being withdrawn in a capricious instant, leaves deep, deep scars.
Offshoot timeline where Eridan went with Kanaya to the core instead of dueling Sollux.
Offshoot timeline where Nepeta stayed and hid like Equius told her to.
Offshoot timeline where it was one of the times Vriska couldn’t control Sollux.
Offshoot timeline where Rose didn’t go Grimdark
Offshoot timeline where Equius fought back.
AU The Fault In Our Stars where Hazel Grace succumbs to the cancer and dies and in the last scene all you see is Augustus standing out side with a cigarette between his lips and a hand slowly reaching up to light it.
HOW IS THIS ANY BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL ENDING!!!!
OH GOD LIFE IS PAIN
looks like someone’s living up to their url
