*sits patiently*

San Myshuno, Nightclub Mushu - 11:41 pm.

Elijah’s been sitting here awaiting for his friend to arrive since 10 pm. He spent about an hour working upstairs before cutting off and heading down to the train station. It’s quiet and not very busy.

He sits there patiently, listening to the music coming in from the station speakers in between announcements. He closes his eyes, taps his foot, and bobs his head to it. A faint smile appears on his face as he listens.

  • Twilight Princess Link: Sits patiently by the edge of a river for three hours to catch a single minnow, which he then shows off to several people
  • Breath of the Wild Link: Fucking power dives off a fifty foot waterfall, shirtless and screaming, to catch a carp with his bare hands, which he then cooks with watermelon, crabs, and milk, creating a seafood dish that lets him temporarily fight God

he just wanted to see genji’s smile

The other night dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
But when I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
So I hung my head and I cried

OKAY BUT CONSIDER
  • yuri plisetsky huddled in the corner of the dressing room staring intently at youtube tutorials about ‘how to achieve the perfect smokey eye’
  • yuri plisetsky using the tiny fucking default sponge brush that comes with the eyeshadow palette and dabbing it angrily on his eyelids
  • ‘it’s patchy georgi, why is it patchy’
  • ‘did she just say BLEND georgi did you hear that? what the fuck does that mean’
  • georgi popovich genuinely meaning well and delighted that yuri is coming to him for help but being 10000% straight boy unhelpful over skype
  • ‘what the fuck is a beauty blender’ georgi says
  • there is a lot of distressed setting powder 
  • luckily yuri bought that from the pharmacy for a grand total of 3 euros
  • the eyeshadow palette was buy one get one free
  • ‘he’s going to regret the acne breakout tomorrow’ sara says 
  • mila’s help has been aggressively rejected about 1.5hrs ago so she’s just taken to periodically dropping in and leaning against the doorway with a bowl of popcorn
  • flanked occasionally by victor nikiforov coming in with anxious offerings of $1000 anastasia beverly hills eyeshadow palettes, chanel lip gloss and tips about strobing your highlighting
  • growing increasingly distressed as yuri plisetsky continues to disregard all his advice and refuses to acknowledge the existence of makeup brushes
  • or blending out your eyeshadow
  • ‘no,’ yuuri says the 4th time victor tries to sneak back into the room and confiscates all of victor’s obscenely expensive makeup
  • yuri has a grand total of 3 existential meltdowns
  • ‘why does makeup hate me georgi, why.’
  • ‘we NEED to outshine the stupid katsudon and their lovey dovey shit otabek, finger guns are a necessity’
  • hair UP OR DOWN’
  • otabek just sits behind yuri and patiently picks up all the cleansing wipes that yuri drops in his battle with lip gloss and the eyebrow pencil and places a hand on yuri’s shoulder that makes him settle down and take a deep breath
  • he also remembers to take yuri’s skates 
  • otabek is a good bean
  • yuri flips the stammi vicino couple the bird before he takes to the ice
  • they’re unsurprised and irritatingly supportive
  • ‘remember what coco chanel said about accessories’ victor says weakly

You really have to put yourself first. Because niggas will put you on the shelf and treat you like an afterthought and get back to you after they finish doing all the other shit they want to do. They assume you’ll just sit there and wait patiently, hands folded, mouth closed, until they are ready to take you or a relationship seriously
And sometimes you need to remind them that you’re grown, you belong to no one, and if they don’t value you you, you will find someone who will.

alright but consider alec not walking magnus back into a wall, but walking him back to his bed. kissing him really slow, those deep kind of soft kisses, those fingers pushing over the exposed skin after his shirt is unbuttoned. it takes some doing but soon magnus can feel the bed against the back of his knees in between hot warm kisses, making a low noise in his throat as he fists his fingers in alec’s shirt. and then alec pushes him down and in this beautiful fluid movement, shifts straight into his lap, knees bracketing magnus’s hips, pushing closer until their bodies are flush and magnus has a lapful of alec. they breathe against each other’s mouths, eyes half lidded, smiles pulling at their lips and pick up where they left off, fingers dragging over still clothed skin, long heady kisses and soft satisfied sighs of being this close

Virgo - The Letters of Love

The Virgo allure is endearing wit, bright eyes, and communication that can make strangers feel at ease. The more comfortable the Virgo becomes, the more sweeping and saturation conversation becomes. They can be transporting and seductive. But Venus is at fall in Virgo, so the expression of love does not come so easily. They are detached enough to be serial heartbreakers. Their youthful and responsive spirit can even seem flirtatious, so people can misread signals. The purity of Virgo however, expresses love in its wholesome form, reflecting their cleansing Sheaf Bearer. Their natural labor is love. Energy is produced on behalf of other people, so they can literally live for lovers. Communication is their communion, and they know when you need advice, silence, or space. Virgo associates with the mind. Conversation can be as intimate as sex for Virgo. But their earthy nature generates intense physical needs, so there is nothing undemonstrative about Virgo. They desire to make lovers happy. They commit themselves to lovers sexually, often subordinately. There is a great respect for partners and diversion from drama or controlling behaviour. 

Virgos would rather have relationships acting as an addition to life rather than a requirement. They feel dependency is unfair to partners. Devoted and collaborative in love, Virgos rely on team work to maintain the partnership and enjoy watching the success story of loved ones. The sign of Virgo is renowned for its discrimination and perfectionism. They will prefer to sit back and patiently observe their object of desire before making their move. Their blind pursuit of perfection can paint unrealistic ideals of lovers, so Virgos can feel deeply betrayed when their loved one makes a mistake or hurts them. Emotion and love is intangible, and when Virgos cannot grab ahold of something it throws off their inner equilibrium entirely. The individual may feel a close physical, emotional, and intellectual attraction to somebody but regress when the moment comes. Love can be displayed through physical service and helpful acts like running errands, planning, or repairing. 

Virgos are easily swooned, and can become saturated by lust - yet they can be too shy to admit it. The inner hysteric in Virgo warns the individual of making the wrong move and exaggerates self consciousness. Every move they make will be deeply evaluated. Like they can spend hours internally deliberating on how to respond to a message. When partners think they are being ignored, Virgo has simply retreated into their own bubble, engaged in the comfort in the home of their thoughts, fearful, and often rife with self hatred. Within every Virgo is a heart that aches for love, yet they are not willing to compromise their order to fit that person in, that person must just ‘fit in’, and this proves its righteousness to Virgo.

anonymous asked:

so,to get this straight,why do you think they filmed seperately? how is that evident by the scene? what did they have to gain from it? i dont get it

OKAY nonny, let’s see if I can explain this using my admittedly very limited knowledge of the film-making process.

Say you want to fill 9 min of air time, with dialogue broken down about equally between 3 characters. So around 3 min each. When Real TPTB are making Real Episodes, the three actors would be there together, interacting, reacting, together they make magic, etc. etc. Look at literally any other episode, you can see the effort and the care that they take to stage shots so that as many people are in the shot as possible. The one that always comes to mind is when everyone scolds Mycroft for shouting at Mrs. Hudson at once, but there’s oodles more in every episode. That’s what makes it feel like they’re all there together, that’s what makes it feel real, that’s what makes the show so great.

So in Real Setlock Land, that means 3 actors all working for however long it takes to make 9 minutes of show. One guy flubs one line, all three shoot another take together. One guy doesn’t have a line for a solid 2 minute chunk of those 9 minutes? Doesn’t matter, he’s still there in the shot, silently acting his lil butt off. Want a long, continuous shot over a particular chunk of that conversation? Everybody had better know their lines damn well, because that’s a lot of man-hours to reshoot and exponentially more opportunities and people to muck it up.

But say we’re not in Real Setlock Land. Say we’re in Fucky Setlock Land. Say for some reason you were pressed for time. Let’s just say, completely hypothetically, you had a full calendar of primary shooting responsibilities to prepare for, but you also had to produce a low-rent slasher film using just your nights, weekends, and lunchbreaks. How would you produce 11 and a half minutes of some semblance of a scene with only the bare requirement that your physical form be physically on a set speaking physical words to a camera?

The scene in 221b looks cheap and bad because it is cheap and bad, precisely because it’s A LOT easier to produce. Ben and Martin are the main limiting resources here, so the first corner to cut right out the gate: they don’t need to film together! Now, any day that Ben is off standing in the middle of the road or Martin is being sad at the Watson flat, the other one can be filming on the 221b set with Director Mark and the B Team. Efficiency #1, simple.

Once you make that decision though, you realize that the way you’re going to have to shoot the scene - cutting from face to face as people say their lines, as to not show the empty room - gives you a lot more incidental efficiencies. Like for instance, now Ben doesn’t actually have to sit there patiently waiting for Mark to recite The History of Eurus if the camera is going to be on Mark that whole time (spoiler: it was). Suddenly, Ben’s 3-minute share of talking becomes 3 minutes of show to make total, consisting of 100% Ben’s lines and 100% Ben’s face. The most efficient and painless way to waste an Oscar-nominated actor’s time filming a low-rent slasher movie possible.

It also means there’s no long scenes or monologues for anyone (Ben) to memorize. Cutting away between every single line means he can reshoot a single line at a time, even sit there and memorize a line at a time if he wanted. Of course the greatest actors of our day don’t bat an eye at a few extra lines to learn, but, just assuming here that they have been double-booked for over a month, hypothetically producing at the same time the greatest love story every put to film, it doesn’t hurt that the stakes here become astronomically low with this production method.

Another corner they cut? They never move. They never move. Easier to keep track of where your imaginary conversation partner is if they aren’t moving, easier to pick camera angles that will reliably conceal the fact that there’s no one else in the room if they aren’t moving.

Anyway, did I answer your question? tl;dr: fake fake fake fake just my analysis

thehighwayphantom  asked:

I just read the thing about de-barking and.. dogs get dementia? Really? How does it present itself in dogs? Can cats and horses get it too? Sorry for all the questions I just had no idea and thought it was just a human condition

We usually call it ‘canine cognitive dysfunction’, because we can see the behavior changes but we can’t exactly sit a veterinary patient down and ask them about what they remember and what year it is. It does partially respond to anti-Alzheimer’s medication though.

We do see a loss of trained behaviors: toilet training, human recognition, and disrupted sleep-wake cycles. As part of the disrupted sleep-wake cycles, some dogs will appear to forget where they are and what they’re doing, and just stand in the backyard barking. At nothing. Monotonously. Continually. And they don’t stop until you go and interrupt them.

The bark might be a confusion response, but these dogs often have no emotion in it. If you listen to dog barks you can usually get an impression of what the dog wants or is thinking- aggression, surprise, play, fear, etc. In dogs with cognitive dysfunction, the barks often sound blank.

And if it is a confusion response, and the dogs are losing their memory, they will spend more of their time ‘lost’ and start to bark. At some point this will become a welfare issue.

Cognitive dysfunction is not as well recognized in cats, but I see behavior patterns which are equivalent so it is probably a similar process, I just don’t know if anybody has been willing enough to chop through enough affected cat brains to characterize it well. There’s no reason any vertebrate that lives long enough wont develop dementia-like syndromes, it’s just that other things seems to catch up to them first.

BTS Reaction - When another member finds your bralette in their room

this is gonna be a little longer, I’m in a very write-y mood today lol This will be under a “read more” because it is kinda long!!!

Suga:

You and Suga had been together for almost two years now - and you’ve only slipped up once. You were alone with Jin in the dorm while all the other boys, including Suga, went off to do their own thing. You walked out of the kitchen and into the living room, and shouted at Jin to see if he wanted to order take out while the other boys were away for the time being. When he didn’t answer, you quickly pulled out your phone and sent Suga a text:

When will you be home? I think Jin and I are going to order Chinese or something x

I’ll be home in five minutes babe, just wait for me before you order.

You smile at his reply and set your phone down, now looking around for where Jin might have disappeared to. 

“Jin? C’mon, I’m hungry and Suga will be home in-” you stop as you open the door to Suga and Jin’s shared bedroom, revealing Jin, the most weirded out look on his face. In his fingers he lightly held onto your red, lacy bralette, as if it was the most disgusting thing he’d ever witnessed.

“Y/N. What. Is this?” 

At that moment, Suga walks in and sees you standing in the doorway to his room, and steps aside to see Jin holding up your bra. 

“Oh, shit. Sorry.” Suga laughs, and Jin starts doing one of his rants like the one he did in the Christmas VLive then flings the bra into a pile of dirty laundry that has yet to be finished. He begins to lecture you guys on the importance of cleaning up after yourselves when you’re “finished being little rabbits.”
