ishiko-matsu asked: Scarlett was listening to her daddy read to her from a book that he had said he enjoyed as a child as she scribbled with her crayons. The three year old's mother had meetings that evening so it was just the two of them. Suddenly, a though came i to her mind, and, because she was cobstantly asking questions, she asked this one. "Daddy," she said in her childish voice. "Why I no look like you?"
"But giants are ugly," she said.
"Well, he said quietly "It’s because I wasn’t the one who…..made you. Exactly."
"That’s cruel," he laughed.
Ishiko laughed and kissed him. “How is that naughty? It’s the truth, Cornelius.”
"Because you’re always embarrassing me when you say such things," he chuckled "I’m surprised I’m not blushing."
"Don’t be ridiculous, I told the chefs you were coming and they said it was no problem." Instead of joining Rory on the divan, he sat on the floor. "You know, if you join me here on the floor I guarantee 100% more comfort. That white un-homely thing is as uncomfortable as sitting on a porcupine." He stated, smiling brightly.
"Oh and may I please request a little favor?" He looked deeply in her eyes, which is what he did often recently. "Relax. I understand this isn’t the most home-like house, I’m not much a fan of it. But please, if there is ever something that bothers you, just tell me."
She followed his instructions and slid down the chair to the floor. It was a good deal more comfortable then the stiff couch she had previously been at and she gave a deep sigh of relief.
"Nothing’s bothering me," she replied with a small smile before looking away quickly "Everything’s pretty good, actually."
“You always learn from observing. You have to pick things up nonverbally because people will never tell you what you’re supposed to know. You have to get it for yourself: whatever it is that you need in order to survive. You become strong by doing the things you need to be strong for. This is the way genuine learning takes place.”Source: Audre Lorde, from an interview dated April 1981 (via violentwavesofemotion)
Things That Give Me Anxiety.

- being around a ton of people
- being yelled at
- wondering if people are talking about me
- every action i do
- and just about everything else
mad-scientist-franken-stein asked: "I hate you." Stein said as she crossed her arms and turned away from Cornelius.
"No, you don’t," he replied with a chuckle.
"Yes I do!" She protested as she didn’t even look at him.
"You are rather adorable when you’re angry," he growled.

"My name is Ace, Miss Rory" he replied grinning ear to ear
"Ace, huh? That’s a cool name."
Aurora’s sudden conversation change was a welcome one, as there was far too much to think about with regards to her proposition, and he currently did not have the ability to gather any information, rendering him only capable of using the knowledge he had filed within his own mind.
It was true that Aurora’s uncle and his father did not particularly have the best business relationship as they were civil enough to get their work accomplished and that was stressful at bed, and to Kyoya’s knowledge, they had never sought out one another’s company on a more personal level either. Even so, Kyoya, while and Ootori, was not his father, and to his knowledge, he had never invoked the ire of Aurora’s uncle in any way.
Shaking his head slightly, Kyoya quickly put a stop to the wheels turning in his head, lifting the corners of his lips in a soft smile as he lifted his glasses up by the side of the frame.
"That sounds agreeable to me, Aurora. Was there anything in particular that you wanted to do specifically?"
"I thought that maybe we could explore town," she replied with a soft laugh "Look at museums, check out any peculiar shops, stuff like that."
One of the baristas who worked in the cafe carefully laid down a plate of goodies on the table. Rory’s eyes lit up upon taking in the sight of the pastries that were displayed there and she hurriedly thanked the girl before helping herself to some of the delicacies. Biting it slowly, she savored the lightly sweet taste that spread across his tongue.She closed her eyes in pleasure before looking at Kyoya with an arch look on her face.
"Remember how my uncle used to bait your dad during their ‘friendly business dinners’ together? God, I thought the night would end in a brawl. Thank goodness both were too busy playing ‘my horse is bigger then yours’ to fight with each other."
She took a sip of her coffee and unconsciously shivered. There was a definite chill in the air today and it seemed to seep through her body even when she was indoors. She was happy that she had decided to wear a sweater although it might’ve looked rather strange to someone like Kyoya who always chose his clothes with care. She smiled slightly when she thought of he might’ve thought of her choice in clothing for her sweater was decorated with the Starship Enterprise soaring through its fabric.
Probably my favorite thing about Bob’s Burgers is that they don’t do that thing where the characters try to one-up each other with an endless barrage of jokes? No, the characters react like actual people instead. They actually laugh or chuckle when somebody says something actually funny and/or weird. They stop mid-sentence. They do double-takes. And it all feels so very natural, because that is exactly what common people do. And that is such a refreshing change of pace, when you consider the fact that the norm in these things is to have jokes relentlessly thrown at you at break-necking speed.
also the comedy doesn’t rely on the parents hating and berating eachother idk i love that
it shows how you don’t need to be offensive to be funny
Bob’s family are my favourite family on tv right now.
Also, let’s talk about how it isn’t “Bob’s the dumb, self-centered one and his wife Linda is the killjoy.” Bob is pretty capable and is very concerned with his family’s welfare; Linda is pretty silly herself. If anything, Bob is the killjoy more often than Linda is, subverting the trope - but it’s the sort of thing where they really do work well as a marriage, and you don’t ask yourself why they stay together.
And Tina is the best thirteen-year-old girl on TV.
