"Florida Man, Scully. It’s all right here," Mulder slaps a stack of newspapers with his knuckles. He leans over her where she sits and looks at her seriously.
"Mulder, you can’t be serious. This is clearly just a series of similar incidents. The only thing they have in common is they’re all based in Florida."
Mulder shakes his head, snorting. “You mean to tell me that there are multiple men in Florida performing the same bizarre crimes? That the man who tried to rob the brother’s CVS with a water nozzle is a different person from the one who killed their husband with a squirrel?”
She looks at him incredulously. “Yes, that’s exactly what I’m saying.”
"Why don’t you believe, Scully? Why can’t you believe for once that maybe — just maybe — the unexplained and fantastical has a place in our criminal investigations."
"I think you want to believe so badly that no state can be as terrifying as Florida that you’ve constructed this omnipresent figure to assuage your anxieties."
He shakes his head once more, arms akimbo. “I’m telling you, Scully. There’s something strange about this case and we’re going to figure it out.”
I graduated high school four years ago and I still have a little nagging fear at the back of my head that I forgot to do something and one of my teachers is just sitting at the school, four years later, still deducting a full 7% letter grade every day my report on Old Man and the Sea is late. The best grade I could get on it now is a -10799%. If I ever turn it in, my high school GPA will plummet so quickly that I will be retroactively rejected from the college I go to.
It baffles me that nobody tells the “let me guilt-trip this famous person into interacting with me on the basis that I’m depressed and/or suicidal” fans that it’s the kind of behavior displayed in abusive relationships and not even a little bit ok
Just because a person is kind or compassionate and responds positively doesn’t mean it’s an acceptable or respectful way to talk to someone, especially someone you don’t know, and especially with the level of anonymity you get through online communications
I’m not just saying “they’re not your friends”, I’m saying you shouldn’t even talk to your friends like that because it’s a dick move
OH MY GOD THE TONGUE THING!
this is suspiciously comforting
soooo sick of the sexualization of asuka, so sick of people defining her by her (unhealthy) relationship with shinji, so sick of people looking at her as this inherently sexual being when in reality she is just searching desperately for validation and to feel “adult” in any way she can, so sick of people erasing asuka’s actual character so they can look at her as a “”cute tsundere”“
