currently watching: orphan black currently crying over: dylan o'brien
I should probably keep this in mind. I’m a terrible studier.
"It wasn’t like I did Orphan Black and was like, [in a snooty voice] “I can’t wait to be nominated for an Emmy.” I was just like, “I’m so excited I’m doing this show. I hope I can get through the day without passing out.” All that stuff feels exterior. The support and the ferocious fandom that got angry about it, that’s lovely. But ultimately, the awards have no bearing on it. They’re great, they open a door for actors, but putting too much of your worth on those things — it’s so weird. It’s just so warped. We put so much value on it and it’s so not what it’s about.” - Tatiana Maslany on the Emmy snub.

DAYS LEFT IMMEDIATE LIFE OR DEATH HELP NEEDED ONE LAST TIME
Tumblr friends. You all saved my life. Unfortunately I need help one last time to keep it that way.
You helped me pay down a hospital bill so I could have major brain surgery in October. Well, the bill for that is $9,600- Medicaid covered the hospital, NOT the doctor(!!). due to financial hardship, it’s reduced to $4,500. (more than half my annual income, on Disability).
The problem: the doctor HAS TO adjust and monitor my new neuro implant every other week, and I WILL DIE WITHOUT THE ADJUSTMENTS. But he is NOT ALLOWED to see me more than once more unless this is paid.
The reduction has conditions: I must pay $1,000 by Dec 16, and the $3,500 balance by Dec 23.
This is a terrible blow to me, unreal. The frustration and fear is simply overwhelming.
So, sadly, I must ask for help one least time (I’ll get on Free Care in April). You’ve all already been so generous. The SPNFamily, fandoms, and Tumblr at large has been amazing. And if there were any way to avoid asking, I would.
PLEASE DONATE IF YOU CAN! I’ve set up a PayPal with the email firstname.lastname@example.org to accept funds (if you “send to a friend” there’s no fee). The hospital can only accept payment from me.
I know the Holidays are already an expensive time. Maybe give someone the gift of saving a life in their name? And I know I recently got so much help from you all. If I had any way to avoid this I would. And of course I’m happy to repay with fics, songs, editing, or anything I can.
As it is I’m also homeless and sometimes staying with my violent abusive parents, other times staying with friends. Every cent I get is going to other medical expenses and necessities.
PLEASE SHARE THIS as far and wide as you can! Share it as text so everyone can read and share again. Whether or not you can give, others may be able to.
Thank you all so so much! Below are some photos just to show what I mean. They called me with the settlement, but the original bill is there, as well as a few of my scars (yes they shaved the whole side of my head).
Thank you again! PLEASE DONATE AND SHARE IF YOU CAN, and ask me any questions.
[Update: WOW! So far you’ve all gotten me to almost half of the total bill! YOU ARE AMAZING! PLEASE DONATE AND KEEP SHARING so I can survive this!]
Sopranish is my friend, and I’ve personally witnessed the reality of her struggles, so I can vouch for both the urgency and the legitimacy of this plea for help. She is on a time crunch and really scared, so any shares or donations would be so, so appreciated. Every little thing helps!!

Supernatural - A Very Supernatural Christmas (2007)
Title: More than Alien MojoAuthor: remivelFandom/Genre: Supernatural, Men In Black AU, Romance, ComedyPairing (s): Dean/CastielRating: NC-17Word Count: 23,715Warnings: sexual content, Alien Castiel, and various cameos of Supernatural characters,Summary: Dean was one of Men in Black’s best agents. In fact, he’s been knee deep in extraterrestrial crap his whole life, and he’s gone through more apocalypses than he could care to remember. He thought he’s seen it all— until he and his partner, Sam, were sent out to a routine meteorite crash inspection. What was supposed to be a meteorite turned out to be a golden spaceship, and instead of hitchhiking intergalactic pathogens, it was an alien that took the form of a human male. A very naked human male.Soon, they discovered that this alien named ‘Castiel’ was a refugee from a war-torn galaxy.The first of his kind to ever venture to Earth, Castiel agreed to share information about his galaxy and his race in exchange for his relocation on Earth. The only catch was: since Castiel was a new alien species, nobody knew what he was capable of, whether he was as harmless as E.T., or as dangerous as the Predator. And it was Dean’s job to keep an eye on him and assess just how much of a threat Castiel could be, and if necessary, eliminate him.It wasn’t a job Dean was looking forward to doing. Especially since he couldn’t seem to keep his eyes off him, naked or not.
like for serious i feel so cute rn
