Aidan Turner and Dean O’Gorman at DoS Premiere
I already have half my christmas shopping done!
This is the closest to having my life together I’ve been in months!
Sterek AU (part one): Derek and Stiles get together on Stiles’ seventeenth birthday, when Derek finally works up the courage to tangle his fingers with Stiles’ as Lydia lights up the candles. It takes another week and a half for Stiles to put his hand around the nape of Derek’s neck and carefully lean in to press a kiss to the corner of Derek’s mouth, lips pulling back into a smile when Derek finally relaxes under the touch, breathing out and sounding so utterly gutted as he licks into Stiles’ mouth and crowds him up against his bedroom door.
Derek’s voice is quiet when he asks Stiles to keep them a secret, just for now, Stiles, and Stiles tries to remember how a heartbeat works and somehow give a stuttered nod in return. Because it’s okay, it is, he can wait, after everything that Derek’s been through it only makes sense that he might be apprehensive now.
But then their friends begin to take notice, (how could they not, with Derek always leaning up against Stiles, pressing his face into the crook of Stiles’ neck while Stiles reads and sometimes Stiles just loops his arm around Derek’s waist when they’re ringing up groceries at the market - unthinking touches that neither of them seem to be aware of until others start pointing it out with teasing smiles). And Stiles thinks that it’s alright now, that Derek won’t feel the need to hide any longer.
Only it turns out quite the opposite, as Derek begins to verbally deny anything between them when approached. And Stiles fears that perhaps they never had anything at all.
We stand there, face-to-face, not meeting each other’s eyes. "You didn’t come see me in the hospital." He doesn’t answer, so finally I just say it. "Was it your bomb?"
"I don’t know. Neither does Beetee," he says. "Does it matter? You’ll always be thinking about it."
He waits for me to deny it; I want to deny it, but it’s true. Even now I can see the flash that ignites her, feel the heat of the flames. And I will never be able to separate that moment from Gale. My silence is my answer.
"That was the one thing I had going for me. Taking care of your family," he says. "Shoot straight, okay?" He touches my cheek and leaves. I want to call him back and tell him that I was wrong. That I’ll figure out a way to make peace with this. To remember the circumstances under which he created the bomb. Take into account my own inexcusable crimes. Dig up the truth about who dropped the parachutes. Prove it wasn’t the rebels. Forgive him. But since I can’t, I’ll just have to deal with the pain.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug NEW Film Clip: You Have No Right To Enter That Mountain
He promised them gold.
In the book, Thorin never promised them gold. The people of Laketown marched up to Erebor after the Master’s insistence that surely Thorin and his Company were dead, and they could take the gold for themselves. And then the men of Laketown and the elves of Mirkwood really did look more like thieves than refugees.
But here, Thorin made them a promise. He promised that all would share in the wealth of Erebor. And in the end, they’re going to go up to the mountain, realize Thorin is still alive, and go “Remember that gold you promised us? We kind of need it. We’re homeless now.”
And Thorin Fucking Oakenshield is going to go “lolnope.”
This is EXACTLY how I feel holy shIT worse even, I think Bilbo might even think this action is admirable, I mean, wow his friend and leader just offered gold to all these people and then when Thorin fails to cough up, this will just destroy Bilbo’s opinion of Thorin holy shit no
