the other day we were discussing dating and this one dude was like “I don’t see the big deal why can’t people just ask people out without all the fuss” and another guy was like “well you get nervous and you get butterflies in your stomach ya know” and the first dude looked the other dude straight in the eye and said “DIGEST THEM.”

make me choose: caroline forbes or buffy summer's puns
#i like to think that buffy spent her days thinking of the puns she’d use while slaying#like she’d be doing the dishes and a pun would come to her and she would chuckle and store it in her mind#or xander would say something and she’d think of a pun she could use#and when the potentials started slaying#one of them would try and fail to come up with spontaneous puns#and buffy pulled her aside and said#’you need to work on those before hand#try it#because at the end of the day it was the brightest part of her daily life#other than her friends i guess#because her life is dark and people die and sometimes she must lead and be a warrior and raise her sister#but for some few minutes of the day#she can amuse herself by thinking of puns#and that’s beautiful

Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter’s night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman’s ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart. And as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there. Ashamed of his monstrous form, the Beast concealed himself inside his castle with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his 21st year. If he would learn to love another and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he fell into despair and lost all hope. For who could ever learn to love a beast?
