Chrissy here. I'm never actually on but I'm also always on. It's a problem.

foreshadowing in the buffyverse (part 2)
→ dawn’s arrival in to the world and buffy’s exit from it
This is one of the more well known examples of foreshadowing in the show but also the most intricate. Dawn’s presence is first hinted at in 3x22 (“Miss Muffet”) by Faith and is then referred to as such again by one of Glory’s victims in 5x2. The 730 stands for the number of days in two years. Two years pass exactly between this episode and 5x22 (withing the show) when Dawn is destined to die (hence the countdown). This number shows up on Buffy’s clock in 4x22, however Tara points out that it is “completely wrong” as one year has passed and now only one year remains of the “countdown”. Faith mentions “little sis” in a dream in 4x15. Both these scenes take place in Buffy’s bedroom which is the first place the audience ever sees Dawn. And Tara’s warning (originally intended to be delivered by Faith for continuity) “be back before Dawn” is given in the previous episode to Dawn’s first appearance. Faith is also responsible for foreshadowing the time of Buffy’s death. During the bodyswap of 4x16, Faith uses a credit card (either Buffy or Joyce’s), with the expiration date of May 2001. Buffy’s death takes place in the same month of the same year and this episode (5x22) aired on May 22 2001, almost 730 days (so roughly two years) after 3x22 first aired on television.
okay so imagine an au where the potters live. harry dates oliver wood briefly. james hears of this and pulls harry aside. stares him in the eye with a deadly serious face
“he’s a Keeper”
You made an entire AU that would alter almost every facet of that series
For a pun
You’re a beautiful person.
"Are you serious right now, Dad?"
"No, I’m not serious. I’m Dad. He’s Sirius."
#kids this the story of how i met your father
"A briefcase." Emmett blinks. "Full of pot."
Miranda’s eyebrows couldn’t go further up into her hairline if she tried. “Daddy pretended to be someone else?”
Harvey nods, crosses his legs. “He was running from the cops.”
"He was running." Emmett blinks again. "From the cops."
Miranda sighs and rolls her eyes, exasperated. “Try to keep up, Emmett.”
Emmett stares off into the distance, wide-eyed, and says softly, “So much future ammunition.”
"So what happened then?"
"Your dad showed me how different he was from everyone else." He can see they don’t understand, so he says, "Your dad woke me up from a rut I didn’t even know I was in. He made the world open up."
"So it was love at first sight?"
Emmett snorts. “It was something at first sight.”
She slaps him across the back of the head. “Ugh. Don’t be gross.”
Harvey smiles mildly. “Don’t hit your brother.”
They all turn their heads when they hear the front door open, and Mike walks in, carrying canvas bags full of groceries in each hand. He sets the bags down on the kitchen counter and walks into the living room. Harvey tilts his head back over the back of his chair and steals a kiss.
"Hello, family. What are we up to?"
"Dad’s telling us the story of how you met."
Mike sits down on the arm of Harvey’s chair. “Did he tell you the part about how I was running from the cops with a briefcase full of pot and pretended to be someone else?”
"And the part about how I dazzled him with my giant Einstein brain?"
Harvey looks up at him, amused and fond. “Is that what you did?”
Mike looks down at him, leans in close. Harvey’s hand curls around his hip. “I blew your mind.”
They kiss and Miranda grins, crosses her legs on the sofa underneath her, props her elbow on her thigh, her chin on her fist. “I think that part was next.”
Emmett shakes his head at her. “You’re such a sap.”
"How can you not be? Like, if one thing had gone wrong that day, one thing, we don’t exist.” She gestures between them. “It was an impossibly tiny window of time, and they made it. How does that not blow your mind?”
Emmett’s always been a little more skeptical, like Harvey. Steadfast to the point of stubbornness. But there’s always been one person who can talk him into changing his mind: their passionate, heart-on-her-sleeve Miranda. Mike’s baby, through and through.
And that’s what he does, conceding with a gentle shove of his sister’s shoulder.
"So what happened next?"
Harvey looks up at Mike, smiles as Mike runs his fingers through Harvey’s hair.
Everything. That’s what happened next.
This was going to be a long story.
dragons that live in volcanoes and coat themselves in lava
dragons that live underwater and have fish scales instead of dragon scales
dragons that live in fields of flowers and breathe out avalanches of flowers instead of fire
DRAGONS BEING COOL AS SHIT
dragons that live in nebulae and exhale colorful dust and baby stars
dragons made out of mountains breathing out tiny pebbles
hurricane dragons breathing out mist and rain
"I know you do, buddy."
