beatles kid proposes on a stairway

villiageidiot:

So I found this half-finished on my laptop last night so obviously, it’s way behind on the times.  I think maybe someone was like, ooh Kurt should start getting crazy tips at the diner when the proposal goes viral on the internet! and I launched on it.  (but then forgot about it and found it way after it was still relevant.) mad props to kat beta-ing two separate fics for me today.

beatles kid proposes on a stairway

:

For Kurt, it starts with a note and a twenty-five dollar tip on a check for a simple side salad.

Good luck with the wedding! You two are cuter than Kevin and Scotty on Brothers & Sisters!!

He shows the receipt to Rachel who launches into a conversation with herself about the realistic depths of Kevin’s neuroses and the unrealistic twist of Scotty’s infidelity but Kurt quickly tunes her out.

He’s only been at the Spotlight Diner for a few days and sure, he’s a better server now than he was on his first day but still — the twenty-five dollar tip on a five dollar meal wasn’t exactly deserved. He forgot to bring her extra croutons, he never remembered to refill her water with lemon, and hello, he didn’t even give her the right dressing. (She ordered Catalina and was wearing an ivory dress, no way was he tempting the fates like that.)

He shows the receipt to Santana when she gets back from break and she’s basically just as useless as Rachel.

“God, go figure,” she mutters. “Sure, you’ve been here all of ten minutes while I’ve been slaving away for months. Of course you should be the first one of us to get a creepy disturbing benefactor.”

Fun History Fact: The overwhelming majority of cowboys in the U.S. were Indigenous, Black, and/or Mexican persons. The omnipresent white cowboy is a Hollywood studio concoction meant to uphold the mythology of white masculinity.

Thank you.

Untitled fic snippet

I wrote this ages ago - theoretically it’s supposed to be the beginning of a longer fic, but in case that never happens (COUGH highly likely), I supposed I might as well post it. I quite like it, anyway.

Fandom: Glee/Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Characters: Mercedes, Emma

Description: Lima needs a Slayer. Apparently.

—-

Mercedes could swear this had been a normal conversation five minutes ago.

derek hale gets down on one knee to look into his son’s eyes, “i named you after the bravest men i’ve ever known, scott scott hale” 

supremeruleroftheinternet:

I was out-fangirled by my 5-year-old. The following conversation happened:

Me:…they’re all the same.
Her: If you close your eyes.

She then bust into “At LeakyCon,” and yes, she does know every word (other than the Gaston erection bit because I mute that).

Her favorite part is the whole “No really? That’s a vampire?” bit

…WAIT WHAT

I HAD NOT SEEN THIS VIDEO BEFORE

Is it new????

EXCEPT THIS ISNT JUST A FUNNY HAHA SILLY HEADLINE GUYS
this is really important and is a really great program that teaches skills to inmates and allows them to basically receive group therapy while they are simultaneously learning a craft
IT IS ALSO REALLY RADICAL BECAUSE IT BREAKS NOT ONLY THE STEREOTYPE THAT INMATES ARE INCAPABLE OF BEING DECENT HUMAN BEINGS WHO CAN TALK OUT THEIR ISSUES AND HEAL AND BE FUNCTIONING MEMBERS OF SOCIETY BUT IT ALSO SHOWS THAT TRADITIONALLY GENDERED HOBBIES LIKE KNITTING ARENT JUST “FOR WOMEN” AND ARE ENJOYABLE FOR EVERYONE.
here is an from the above article

They started by knitting comfort dolls, which they gave to children removed from their homes because of domestic issues. Then they moved on to hats for kids at the inner-city elementary school many of the prisoners attended, Zwerling says. “If you look at them, they’re covered with tattoos, they’re rough looking, and many of the young guys don’t have all their teeth,” she says. “But it doesn’t feel rough. They’re very respectful and grateful and very happy to knit.”

THEY KNIT COMFORT ITEMS FOR ABUSED KIDS. THEY KNIT HATS FOR INNER-CITY CHILDREN.
this is a good program and i really hope that people actually look into it rather than just posting the headline and a silly image attached ok
original article - x

Seriously go read that article.

People have written a lot of touchy-feely pieces on this subject but I thought I’d get right to the heart of the matter

This is 1000% more motivating than every preachy “real writers write every day” post on all of Tumblr.
