So. A year in. Let's talk about Carmilla.

Technically, Carmilla’s been a year old in its conception since about April, when Jordan and I were introduced to each other and started spitballing ideas back in forth via email. Or technically, it’s been a year old since the beginning of May when we started to plot out the show. Or, it’s been a year old since mid-July, when Laura and Carmilla’s twitter feeds went live.

But for y'all, Carmilla turns one today. Today was when we, at 5:30 in the afternoon, launched the super-sekret project that Steph and I been super vague tweeting about all summer.

What a year it’s been.

I think we’ve all learned a lot, about storytelling, about a multi-platform experience, about suddenly having to have what used to be a close circle of social media friends explode into Nat’s… 50k+ followers on twitter? (I haven’t checked recently, but you go Nat. Someone verify that girl.) We’re just getting to the part where this all feels familiar and I realized this morning that it’s been a year.

So here’s to all the amazing people I’ve met because of this silly little idea I had in answer to Steph’s call for suggestions. And here’s to Jordan’s amazing writing that brought it to life and reimagined it in a way that I never thought possible. Here’s to all the wonderful faces of the cast, and the behind the scenes people that you guys don’t get to know, but I assure you are all excellent.

And here’s to another, wonderful year.

(and here’s to Elsie, who truly has a swagger all her own.)


Lily Tomlin on Grace and Frankie, her Netflix series with Jane Fonda:

“[Friends producer] Marta [Kaufman] had the idea and she was in my agency, William Morris, and they came to us with the idea, they came to Jane and me both. So that was really clever that she wanted to pair us up because we hadn’t been together in a show since 9 to 5 and that was a big hit and Jane and I really are fairly close and have been friends for years and it seemed like a natural [pairing]. We both wanted to do something about older women and how discounted they are, how easily overlooked they are in the culture, and have that kind of impact.”

SuperJunior debuted as a rotational group but has become Hallyu royalty. Here’s how|150819

Celeb Crushin’: Super Junior

It’s time once again to swoon over our star hottie pick(s) of the week, multiple milestone-marking K-Pop group extraordinaire Super Junior

It’s time once again to swoon over our star hottie pick(s) of the week, Hallyu Royalty Super Junior

Super Junior and their legion of dedicated fans, ELF (Everlasting Friends) marked another milestone in the group’s 10-year young career yesterday (Aug 17, GMT +8) after they were announced by FOX as the Teen Choice 2015’s first-ever Korean winners.

The win was made doubly sweet with dual triumphs – the group edged out groups such as One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer to clinch the Choice International Artist and their fans, the Choice Fandom award.

While some have called the group has-beens in the light of younger, (subjectively) better looking idol groups debuting on an almost-daily basis, we take a look back at some of the biggest achievements this K-Pop group extraordinaire has made throughout their decade in the biz, proving why they’ve earned their well-deserved spot as K-Pop royalty.


Thank you thank you thank you @sidatron for making our short trip the Best Ever ❤️💜❤️💜❤️💜❤️💜❤️💜 The friends I’ve made online over the years have helped me through so many tough times. I really wish we could all live together in Mimei Land, you guys don’t even know. I’ve been so lucky to meet 2 of them this year and many more when I was traveling in the States in 2009. When I asked my friends to speak at our little wedding celebration in February in NZ the only one who stood up to say something was someone I’d met online and only been able to meet IRL 4 or 5 times. Not one of my real life friends of over 10 years! Online friendships are real and rare and to be treasured. Of course real life connections are important and very valuable too, but when you come from a small country like me and no one around you shares your interests, being able to connect to likeminded people online can make all the difference. Sometimes I feel a bit torn about how the Internet is now, but as a force for connecting people regardless of distance, it really is the best.


Guess who’s got a girlfriend! ME!! Well, and her, but she’s definitely getting the raw end of that deal.

It seems happy endings do still happen without me having to write them myself, although I’m not sure this plot is any more believable: best-friends-turned-lovers over the course of an until-5-am conversation that everyone but them could tell had been coming for a long, long time. Still, all’s well that ends well, and, hey, it only took 2 years! Although we still manage to look 12 in that first picture, good lord!

Anyway, I’ve linked her in here in case you wanna snoop, or there’s a link in my blog description, and, if you wanna stalk our relationship, there’s also a girlfriend tag in the description that will be tracking “Danissa”, the ship name we’ve been dubbed with for…well, much longer than we’ve actually been dating (Sunday, for the record).

Aaaaaand that’s all, folks! I now return you to your regularly scheduled blogging.


I just realized something here.

I have a best friend and we’ve been best friends since we were like 7. Then comes our early teen years, we were apart for like 4-5 years and eventually caught up during our college days. Now that I think about it….

When we caught up again with each other… 

- She’s this artsy girl who is majoring in…well… arts in college and likes photography (she even has her own studio equipment for pete’s sake).

- I’m a rebellious only child with mood swings, an angst-y attitude and dyed blonde hair. (But hey, I didn’t drop out of college or anything. I finished my degree on time hah)

- She’s a Virgo

- I’m a Pisces

- She has a “hipster” fashion sense.

- I have this rocker fashion sense (all hail ripped jeans and combat boots)

I can go on and on here. But my point is…


This is some legit shit bruhs. I ain’t kidding with anything. THIS IS SERIOUSLY PSYCHING ME OUT.

(Or I’m just thinking too much lmao)

(note: yeah max is a virgo [sept. 21] and chloe’s a pisces [march 11])


We’ve been together for a year and a half now. We started our relationship commuting to work for our 5 AM shifts. We hardly commuted together but sometimes we would be on the same train. There was so much comfort knowing that you were there with me.

Now, we’re commuting to our 5 AMs together, in a new city. We have been through a lot in our time together and things aren’t always roses and daffodils, but there’s no one else I would walk through the thorns with

Thank you mxkryn for being my best friend and life partner. I love you.


Faye’s Application for spotlightdstudio

Faye has been dancing since she was 5 years old, and she is now 10. She’s danced with a children’s dance group and competed last year, getting 2nd in her division! We were really impressed with her, as it was her first time competing. We recently moved to Aurora Skies, however, so Faye’s looking for a new dance studio to join.

Faye is very full of energy and loves to make new friends. She’s excited to start Flower Scouts in a few weeks and would love to have the opportunity to dance with Spotlight as well. 

Her dream is to some day become a dance instructor herself so she can spread the love of dance with a future generation!

(Please help get this post to 35 notes so Faye can have a spot in Spotlight Studios!)


HAPPY BIRTHDAY kokorofranta!

this is a very special day since this little bean is one year older, look how you’ve grown! :’)
you and i go far back, you’ve been my best friend for 5 long and fantastic years and i hope we remain that close till death do us part. 

we’ve experienced many adventures together; from falling over each other to embarrassing ourselves horrifically in public. i love you so much for everything that you are, and i hope you have an amazing rest-of-your-birthday - i love you bro! :’) <3


Went to a local show today to cheer for my riding bff. (We’ve been friends for almost 20 yrs! 🙈) She took her half board horse, who has only been jumping for a few months (she just started riding him May/June) and she hasn’t shown in about 5 years. They were 2nd in the flat class, but a little too green over fences for a ribbon. They both had a great time though - and that’s all that matters 😊

I’d call it a big success!

My six easy miles are done for the day. I was halfway through and thinking now how much easier this run felt, despite only being on average 10ish seconds slower than yesterday. Then, I remembered that I took a Gu this morning before my run and normally I don’t take any fuel if it’s under 5 miles.

Now, I’m already hungry and I’m certain I’ll be a bottomless pit all weekend long. One of my best friends is visiting for the weekend and I haven’t seen her in person in about 5 years. She lives in Raleigh and I’ve lived in a bunch of places and this is the first time we’ve been able to make solid plans. I’m excited to see her, but I have a million other things I need to do on my two off days so I’m a little anxious. Anyway, it’ll be fine, I’m sure.

Happy Friday.

Calling for help from FNL and Veronica Mars fans.

So yesterday may have been the worst day of my life.  My sister and life long best friend, was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I’m still absorbing the news and coming to terms that my beautiful, strong, stubborn, smart, independent sister has been struck by this ugly disease.  Her husband, myself, our parents and the many family and friends that love her will rally around her and help her, as well as my beautiful nieces who turn 5 and 7 within the next 3 weeks.

One of the things I thought I’d do for my sister (and to distract myself from worst case scenario thoughts) is put together a gift basket.  She’s going to have to have a lumpectomy and then we’ll know what will be the next steps in her care.  Over the past 8 years she and I have had regular “sister nights”.  These nights usually include Friday Night Lights and Veronica Mars as well as a lot of talking.  In fact, we are in season 3 of our second Veronica Mars rewatch.  So I thought my gift basket would be inspired by our mutual loves of those shows and the bonding we did on the nights I came over to watch them with her.

Does anyone have ideas of what I could include?  There are so many creative people on here.  I don’t mind if they are items to purchase or make.  I’m somewhat crafty and really like baking.  Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Early throwback photo of us:


11 years ago today I was visiting a good friend in South Africa whilst he was on his gap year. We’d been friends since we were 15 and whilst we were at secondary school. We decided to stop making excuses and get together properly.

5 years ago we got married. We didn’t do traditional vows, but if we had then now would be the for poorer, for worse part of them. We want to try and make it better, to make things work and move past the problems we’re having. I hope that this time next year things will have changed.

But today is for celebrating the things we have achieved together: getting our degrees, new house, our beautiful, clever daughter, travel, family and so in. It’s to remember the happier times in our relationship. And perhaps to use those to move forward.

anonymous asked:

I'm a bisexual female in love with my gay male best friend for the past 5 years. He has made some sexual advances towards me, and even told his family that one day we will get married and have kids. He claims to be 100% gay and has been his whole life. I'm confused? Should I let my feelings go? Or is there more to this than what I'm thinking? It's kind of tearing me apart inside because I don't know what to do.

Talk to him about it. It feels like he’s fake leading you on for funsies and has no idea that you actually have feelings for him. He’s not doing it out of any malicious headspace, but it is messed up. It’s not gonna change unless you talk to him about it. You also might need to take a little break to get some objectivity on the situation. You have his love as a friend. That’s incredible. Don’t feel like you’re losing because he doesn’t love you “that way.”

oxycontin-genocide asked:

I'm a violist, I've been playing for a year, and for my time im doing really well, but any tips or new practice methods that I might find interesting? (I get distracted easily when I do something repetitively) and we could be friends bc music 👌👌👌

Hey !And of course I have tips and methods.
1. ( this is a method I use A LOT) so let’s say you have math homework or just something that needs to be filled out or done , play 5 minutes then answer a question and do this repetitively until the sheet is done. That way you get short breaks that are still productive and don’t end up in you going on tumblr.

2. Find a good practice space. Take a week and move your stand around until you found a good space where you don’t get distracted easily I.e not in front of a window or a loud place. My stand is set up so my back is to the window and my computer / phone.

3. Make initiatives for how much you practice. For example , “ if I practice 250 minutes this week I can go get dinner at that really nice restaurant in town ”

And sure message me anytime !

The rules are:

Rule 1: always post the rules

Rule 2: answer the questions the person who tagged you wrote, then write 11 new ones.

Rule 3: tag 11 people.

Rule 4: tell them that you tagged them.

Rule 5: tag “#tag”. 

Questions for me:

1) What/who would your patronus be?
I think it would be an owl (I’ve never done one of those quiz things I just love owls and I’ve always said if I was an animal I’d be an owl). 

2) What has been the best moment of 2015 for you so far, and what are you looking forward to? 
2015 has actually been a pretty decent year, but I’d have to say the highlight of it was when I finished my last A2 exam and my friends and I went back to one of my good friend’s house and got tipsy on like 5 bottles of prosecco between 7 of us at 11am and then we danced to Mr Brightside in her kitchen and then I went for McDonalds and then I saw Mad Max: Fury Road with my best friend. That was one of the best days of my life so far.  
I’m really looking forward to moving out and going to university (hopefully I’ll get in asdfghjkk) and living my life the way I want to. I think I’ll be so much happier living on my own.

3) The last book you read, what did you think of it, would you recommend it?
Well I’m actually in the middle of The Virgin Suicides, and lets just say it’s not for the weak-hearted. I would only recommend it to you if you weren’t experiencing any mental health issues, which begs the question as to why I’m reading it.

4) Favourite flower?
I went through a bluebell phase recently

5) Show me your handwriting, write something, anything, and post it?
I’ll do that at some point when I can be bothered to find my phone asdfdfd remind me please!

6) Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter?
Autumn and winter, because the weather is cold and everything is dying just like me 

7) Favourite episode of Sherlock, why?
It used to be a Scandal in Belgravia but now it’s His Last Vow because it’s just so damn gay. Sherlock brings himself back to life for John Watson I mean ???????

8) Do you have any bad habits?
Posting personal shit on the internet, biting my nails, not finishing books, I have so many… 

9) What would you usually order at a restaurant? 
It depends on the restaurant, but either pizza or pasta - with meat like chorizo or pepperoni or something. Mmmm. 

10) Who is the kindest, bravest and wisest person you’ve had the pleasure of knowing?
I know lots of brave, wise and kind people but the person who has helped me the most, especially over this past year has been my best friend Henna. She’s always there for me at any hour for the day and if it weren’t for her I’d be a mess, so I owe her as much as Sherlock owes John.

11) Most vivid memory as a child?
I honestly don’t know because every time I try thinking of something, it just eludes me. I don’t know if I’m remembering it because I’ve seen photos so many times or heard stories so many times. One thing I remember very clearly is the time I nearly drowned in my uncle’s pool because his neighbour’s daughter pulled away my pool noodle and I nearly got sucked up by the pool cleaner that was sucking up leaves off the pool floor (obviously it wouldn’t have sucked me in but I was 4, gimme a break). Or the time my mum’s friend’s daughter was babysitting me and we went bowling and then she bought my the first Harry Potter book and I remember reading it under the covers of my bunk bed and then keeping it on top of my cupboard. I remember coming back from a holiday in the US and pronouncing “water” in an american accent for about a month and annoying my whole family. 

My questions for you are:
1. What is your favourite thing about yourself?
2. Favourite book of all time?
3. How would you describe your taste in music?
4. What do you prefer, theatre or films?
5. What do you want to be when you grow up?
6. Do you read fanfiction and if you do, what’s your favourite one you’ve ever read (for any ship)?
7. How did you meet your best friend? What made you decide that they were your best friend?
8. Who would be on your list of 5 celebs you’d want to sleep with? (Skip this if you don’t want to answer it!!)
9. Marvel or DC?
10. What superpower would you love to have?
11. What is the one thing you’ve always wanted to say to someone but you never have?

davidbascombe asked:

How did you become friends with Kimmi aka QueenChikkbug aka Holystarsandgarters?

back in the cringe worthy days of the website that will not be named Kimmi was actually my 100th follower… or watcher… or subscriber… whatever they called it, I went on her page and was so amazed at how much better she was than me I had to ask if she did it on accident or not and we have been friends since then. Not much has changed since then, she is still way better than me, actually back then I used to call her Lime.
