I feel like this entire scene had really good moments. They were small and unnoticeable if you were paying attention to the whole arc of the episode rather than the small moments. We’ve been doing commentaries all day of the small moments and I really wanted to touch base on this one. We’ve seen so much interaction between these two from their intimate talk before going off to fight, their father-daughter fighting tag team, and then him watching her battle Zaheer. What pains me to think about is how much I think Tonraq thinks he’s let down Korra as well. Whether she’s the Avatar or not, she’s still his child. She’s still his one and only pride and joy. He’s almost lost her on several life-threatening occasions but all those times before have never beat her down so far. And now, I would imagine that he wants to be there for her. It kills me to think about his scene with her when he was trying to wake her up. And when she does, he tells her he’s never going to let her go again. What Tonraq must be thinking is that he’s let her down. And she probably thinks she’s let him down after he’s told her how proud he is.
I love this part because he comes over to her and kneels in front of her, telling her how beautiful she is. We can see that she’s got the bags under her eyes - that she’s suffering from her poisoning, from depression, or from nightmares. Whatever the case, she is his shining little girl no matter what. And in the frame before this, she doesn’t have that inkling of a smile on her face. But here…she has a smile. They both do. And for a moment, they look at each other and have this incredibly endearing relationship that kills me.
I imagine that when she thinks about home, she thinks about him most especially (not that I don’t give Senna credit as well, I just wish her relationship with Korra was more intimate than what is shown).

ladies and gentlemen, the american education system

My school apparently ran out of toilet paper a few weeks ago and my Spanish teacher was telling the girls to keep a roll in their purses and the guys to keep a roll in our backpacks. North American Education system.

this is basically any public school in the world tbh

Here’s the thing though: at my middle school, the bathrooms were always out of paper towels. (No, there were not electric hand dryers. While I’m sure public schools equipped with those exist, mine was not, probably because the building is almost fifty years old. The high school is actually just beginning renovations which will, among other things, install an air conditioning system.) Anyway, soap hardly ever ran out, so we wondered why they didn’t just replace it with hand sanitizer and negate the paper towel problem. Well, turns out the administration was afraid kids would drink it. Because, you know, hand sanitizer contains alcohol. 
This is why we can’t have nice things.

sambucky parent/teacher au (omg im making u do a kidfic im sorry ive been reading too much kidfic recently)

theappleppielifestyle answered:

Sam meets Bucky Barnes when his daughter is bunching up his hair into a mess of ponytails with multicolored hair-ties, complete with bobby pins stuck haphazardly into his hair, as if she heard about the concept but didn’t fully grasp it and instead put them anywhere she thought they looked good.

Sam first meets Bucky Barnes’ eyes when his daughter is clipping his fringe away from his face, and Sam has to chew on his cheek to stop himself from bursting into unprofessional laughter. He teaches second grade, after all. He deals with this shit all the time. He’s had his own share of bad hairstyles doled out to him by kids who are still working on spelling words with three syllables.

"Hi, I’m Mr. Wilson, I’m Emily’s teacher," Sam says after he has confidence that he can open his mouth without giggling. He grins at Emily as he passes her, coming to sit behind his desk. "Hey, Em. Bedazzling your father, I see."

"He only lets me do the glitter when we’re at home," Emily complains, and Sam bites hard on the inside of his cheek.

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question
