Epic failure of a team indeed. "My girlfriend is edgy and elegant so here, I got her these super fancy Loubutins shoes" (insert picture + model). This is publicity supervised by his team, this was approved by them, it was them putting his "girlfriend" in the public to sell a product. And like this tons of times. Tell me again how they want to be a "private under the radar" normal couple when she is blatantly used to promote shoes, toys (BB8) or restaurants (Saved by the Bell).

He *bought* her shoes that she’s never ever been seen wearing.

Fiction: The Paying Guests, by Sarah Waters (1/02/2017)

Waters was on my radar for years (which is the cultured way of saying, “In high I used to watch clips of kissing scenes from her tv adaptations to Feel Things”) but I didn’t read her until last year. I expected an eat-your-vegetables-this-is-good-for-you type of literature with beautiful prose and a turgid plot where women exchange meaningful glances of a love they dare not speak, for they’ve only heard gayness whispered about if they’ve heard anything at all. Instead, I got hardcore bonetown. I got high drama, intrigue, suspense, communities of openly queer women in historical time periods, and just. so. much. boning. the. hell. down. The Paying Guests continues the trend of baroque drama lesbians, this time in the 1920s when a genteel but newly poor mother and her spinster daughter must take in a young couple as lodgers. I’d recommend Tipping the Velvet as your intro to Waters’ wet and wild work, but The Paying Guests is a solid romance turned crime novel, as Frances and Lillian fall in love and struggle against Victorian, Edwardian, and Jazz Age expectations of what a women should be. Also murder. They struggle against some murder too, which does cut into the deeply literary boning.

Do you think jack is a player? Because I'm obsessed with that theory

okay settle in folks we’re about to get real

I don’t think he’s necessarily a player, I think he’s incredibly charming and is in a point in his life where he has the opportunity to sample a lot of girls. It doesn’t surprise me that being in a relationship is seemingly not on his radar. At the same time though, I think he’s crafted this image of himself online as a bit of a player and a fuckboy and gives off the whole bad boy vibe that is very in tune with his mannerisms, fashion sense and personality.

I think that he probably does sleep around a lot but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I live on a university campus in “the sunshine state” so most of the boys who I come into contact with are similarly minded to Jack. They don’t want to settle down, they just wanna mess around (i’ll give a prize to whoever can tell me the song I just referenced) and that’s fine. 

The whole good girl-bad boy theme seems to be prevalent in a lot of jack imagines, mine included, and it’s easy to see why people think he’s a player, especially considering what joe and the boys have said in the “let’s talk about sex” and “game of phones videos” and even oli’s “reacting to fake youtuber texts” (i.e “I can’t promise she won’t touch me” “jack would actually say that”) and also his  “never have I ever video”. So the answer to your question is I think Jack is a smooth talker who uses his looks and charm to win over girls so he can sleep with them. That doesn’t make him a bad person, like I said, most of my friends are like that, hell both my university boyfriend’s have been like that. it’s just how guys who get a lot of attention are I think. All of the boys are players by that standard. Even my precious smol bean Oli.

I have a question about the Burma incident. If they were trying to make it seem like Karlie was on the other side of the globe with Josh, then why did she and Taylor go to a public a place where they could be seen by people instead of hiding in her apartment?

Unknown. But my guess is they thought they could fly under the radar *hums I Know Places* and discovered that day that they couldn’t. I am 100% certain that they were NOT supposed to be caught on camera. Being seen didn’t matter so much as long as the ‘evidence’ for later showed Karlie had been somewhere else. Instead, the evidence shows she was with Taylor. They didn’t look particularly pap ready in the pic, probably because they didn’t expect to be seen.

While I miss things like this for their evidence gathering value, the fact we don’t get them anymore probably comes from the fact that they’re both better at it. No one has seen evidence of Taylor posted online in forever but she probably hasn’t just been holed up in her house the whole time. She just hasn’t been photographed, or the pics haven’t shown up online.

she was everything her mother wanted her to not be, the poster child for washed up youth. you wondered where she spent her saturday nights, but if you knew it would change everything. she’s a firecracker, has been since the days she spent in the white house following her father’s footsteps and living for the fame. she never left the radar, never got out of the spotlight until high school. and that changes a person. she was always seeking attention, in any way she could, and she found that attention in the arms of men who worked alongside her father. senators, of course, she wouldn’t settle for a white house aide. she was high dollar, the classiest call girl in dc. maybe that’s why she was exiled to connecticut, away from her parents and far away from tarnishing her family’s good name. but really, how good can a name like b r o o k l y n  w h i t m o r e  be ?
