Anonymous said: derek tries and fails to woo an oblivious!stiles, so he goes to Scott for advice except Scott doesn't want stiles and derek to be a thing that happens bc of a multitude of reasons so he gives him the worst tips except they accidentally end up working really well


so, i didn’t do this prompt at all, kind of. because i feel like Scott would be all YAY LOVE. so, i did Scott being all YAY LOVE, and Derek being all NO, PAIN, HURT, MUSTN’T FEEL THIS WAY, HELP. so Scott helps.


So, Scott’s a little bit worried Derek wants to kill Stiles.

A year ago, he’d have been genuinely, totally, sincerely sure Derek wanted to kill Stiles. And Scott. And most of the people he came into contact with. Not, that Scott saw Derek interact with many people seeing as how he seemed to live in the dark corners of gross subway stations, or lurk in Scott’s bedroom. But, his expressions generally seemed to imply he wasn’t happy about talking to anyone. Stiles never seemed to find it particularly scary. Scott remembers Stiles calling him sour wolf and then crowing about it for days afterwards. Once, you know, they knew Derek was alive again. He made light of it, though. It’s one of the things Scott loves best about his best friend; the ability to make him laugh, even when he was having the worst day of his life.

He’s real glad his best friend is around, alive, happy again, winding Derek up, teasing Scott, tweaking Allison’s hair.

And god, he’s even really glad Derek’s alive. Underneath the angry eyebrows, and the gruff exterior, he’s actually kind of nice. That seriously wasn’t a sentence he believed he’d utter when Derek was stomping around school and telling Scott off for wanting to date Allison all the time. But, they’re past that. Sometimes, Derek sits and has dinner with Scott and his mom; sometimes he even plays video games with him and Isaac. Stiles came flying into the room unannounced, and then backed right out when he saw them all, declaring he was having a stroke. Scott’s not a hundred per cent, but he’s pretty sure he saw Derek’s mouth twitch like he was trying not to smile.

Which, is his fear now.

Because, Derek keeps smiling when Stiles is around.

As an actress, I realize that viewers are entitled to have whatever feelings they want about the characters they watch. But as a human being, I’m concerned that so many people react to Skyler with such venom. Could it be that they can’t stand a woman who won’t suffer silently or “stand by her man”? That they despise her because she won’t back down or give up? Or because she is, in fact, Walter’s equal? But I finally realized that most people’s hatred of Skyler had little to do with me and a lot to do with their own perception of women and wives. Because Skyler didn’t conform to a comfortable ideal of the archetypical female, she had become a kind of Rorschach test for society, a measure of our attitudes toward gender.”

important good things about farscape

  • gender norms??? more like gender BORES farscape has no time for that shit
  • male protagonist allowed to emote
  • female deuteragonist allowed NOT to emote 
  • the show almost entirely bypasses the tired “fish out of water” trope i hate so much in newcomer sci fi stories with john and just sort of expects him to roll with it
  • and he does! and so do we as viewers. more shows need to trust that their viewers will go along for the ride with them.
  • aliens that actually look ALIEN, no rubber foreheads here
  • alien behaviors that actually feel ALIEN — see chiana & d’argo’s sex scenes, zhaan’s reaction to light, etc
  • WEIRD PLOTLINES that seem genuinely, once again, ALIEN — sometimes to the show’s detriment but often to its benefit
  • making you feel as strongly about rubber puppets as you do about the main cast of actors
  • claudia black

#this should be tumblrs forever show there are literally no flaws and NO ONE WATCHES IT #THE FEMALE TO MALE CHARACTER RATIO IS OUT OF THIS WORLD  #like eh 3 dudes and 20 LADIES

  • visible character development in that when they did an x gets timeswapped into his body in the 1st ep they point out HOW DIFFERENT everyone was back then.
  • everyone in leather.
  • characters switching sides for personal motivation, not plotclanger purposes
  • John being visibly insane by S3/4

A main couple who don’t stretch Will They/Won’t They to six seasons, or make it the entire plot of the show. 

People making shitty decisions because they’re flawed, self-serving, wonderful, fugitive douchenozzles. People not always being entirely repentant about making those decisions because of aforementioned self-serving douchenozzleness. 

Cast/crew commentaries about the shittier episodes and how much they fucking hate them (seriously, if you haven’t listened to the commentary on Jeremiah Crichton, you haven’t lived) 

Episodes that were clearly written by people tripping balls. 

The kiss in The Flax which is one of the hottest kisses in the history of kissytimes. 

Let’s talk about the complexity of the planets they encountered! There were different factions, different races, different languages…they didn’t just go to planet A and encounter the entirely homogenous race of planet A. They went to planet A and encountered the ruling class, then met the oppressed servants, got embroiled in an assassination attempt by giant lizard people from planet B, and had sexy times with several members of yet another species who just happened to be hanging around for a few days to visit.

Which highlights something really important about sci-fi: the heterogeneity of the Other. When sci-fi stories make a race of aliens all the same, it reduces an entire planet of people to a few tropes, denying them any complexity of culture, biology, social structures, politics, etc. It basically says, if you’re different from Us, then we’re not all that interested in exploring the possible complexities of your existence. And that has a lot of impact, I think, on how we view each other in real life.

Stories like Farscape that say “those people over there may not be Us but they’ve got a lot of their own shit going down and that impacts Our interactions with Them” opens the door to heterogeneity, both in the Other and, flipping the mirror around, in Us.

How to Ladder or ‘Invisible’ Stitch

Great Stitch for closing up seams. I use it sometimes when I want to close up a regular lining neatly (although I’m sure there’s better stitches for that)
