One of the things that I love about this confession is how different it is from Jim’s speech in “Casino Night”. In The Office, Pam is engaged and has been engaged since BEFORE the Pilot. Jim has never met a non-engaged Pam but he still harbors romatic feelings for her. Not problematic so far, but Jim’s confession to Pam was one that expected an answer, a very specific answer. He wants Pam to tell him that she loves him too.
But at this time, Pam is not a character who makes huge, life-changing decisions in the spur of the moment. She needs time to think and process and talk to her mom and she tries to tell Jim how important their friendship is to her and he cuts her off and tells her to stop. Jim doesn’t want to hear anything other than the idealized script he has in his head. He becomes curt and a bit rude and leaves disappointed and mad just because Pam is trying to deal with this shocking news he’s dropped on her and doesn’t immediately run into his arms.
Jake, on the other hand, offers up his feelings to Amy without strings. He understands she is with someone else. He doesn’t expect anything and he acknowledges that he missed his chance and should have acted sooner. He doesn’t expect a response from her, just needed to tell her what he wished could have happened (using the past tense). He makes no demands on her future and the decision is left up to her. It felt more considerate of Amy’s situation (just starting a serious relationship) and made me love Jake’s character just a little bit more.

Enemy: “It’s the Herald of Andraste!”
Dalish Inquisitor: [looks into the camera like they’re on The Office]

Preview for Hawkeye #19… out this coming Wednesday (07/30/2014)!!
There Lúthien listened in amaze,
and softly on Huan did she gaze.
Her arms about his neck she cast —
in friendship that to death should last.
socialjusticerougealevre's wonderful OCs Shorok (Hufflepuff) and Sfia (Slytherin) because if there’s anything I love more than Slytherpuff friendships it’s Slytherpuff friendships where the Hufflepuff is 200% likelier to mess you up than the Slytherin.
early morning snuggles
because I have a OT4
I regret nothing, nothing at all
in stories featuring aliens, they’re always like “on my planet this never happens!” or “in my culture, this differs from your human culture.” and that’s neat and all because i like worldbuilding and all that jazz but wouldn’t it be fun if they just. couldn’t do that?
i want a story where humans encounter an alien who frustrates them because they don’t know enough to tell them anything concrete
like humans will ask “tell us about politics in your planet!” and the alien’s all “uh… hold on it’s been a while since i took gov. um….”
"what sorts of plants grow on your planet?"
"i dunno i grew up in the suburbs. they’re like… purple? idk what you want me to say"
"tell us about the culture on your planet!"
"do you have any idea how many @#!*% countries are back home, i don’t even know where to begin"
"your planet is obviously much more scientifically and technologically advanced than ours. is it possible for you to enlighten us on certain matters concerning space travel, or would that be a form of interference you must avoid?"
"naw it’s cool, it’s just that, um, i’m a philosophy major"
