As Underwood As it Gets

According to Harris, this prim and polished dress is her favorite and the most quintessentially “Claire” outfit. “My favorite look from season 5 is the custom blue dress with gold buttons that I designed,” she shared, noting that the ensemble also reflects the character’s inner-workings: “It represents Claire’s love of being in control, all buttoned up and fitted.”

The Politics of Style

When it comes to adapting Claire’s look, Harris has drawn inspiration from many female politicians. “I’ve been very inspired by the strength and spirit of women in politics,” she told us, citing “Carol Moseley-Braun (above), the first woman to wear pants on the senate floor in 1993, the brave founders of the Suffrage movement, the female Supreme Court Justices.”

Presidential Polish on a Budget

Is it possible to dress like Claire without a Hollywood costume budget? Yep! Harris’s advice is to look for a local ally. “Find a great tailor or seamstress in your neighborhood! You can make even the most simple skirt look like a Claire-tailored skirt.”

Faz 1 ano e 17 dias que não nos falamos mais, faz 9168 horas que eu sinto sua falta, faz quase 13 meses que eu fico relembrando da nossa amizade. E pensar, que em julho do ano passado ainda éramos melhores amigos? Pensar que prometíamos que iríamos escrever um texto enorme no nosso aniversário de amizade? É, promessas em vão, palavras jogadas ao vento e tempo que não irá ser recuperado. Arrependimento? As vezes, mas pelo menos me fez feliz naquela época, não posso reclamar. Já escrevi tantos e tantos textos que nunca mandei, tantas e tantas cartas que foram pro lixo, já abri o telefone digitei teu número e quase te liguei milhões de vezes, quase te mandei mensagem, mas pensei “pra que?”, se sempre que eu vou falar contigo você nunca me responde?! Cansei disso. Enfim, sempre espero que você saiba, que um dia ainda você irá se lembrar de mim, nem que seja algo ruim, tu vai se lembrar, sabe por que? Porque eu nunca me esquecerei do MEU grodo, meu malvado favorito, meu melhor amigo, é aquele no qual vivi os 5 melhores meses da minha vida. Se pudesse voltar atrás, faria tudo igualzinho, sabe, não iria mudar nada, bom, só iria tentar continuar a amizade, mas no mais, eu iria deixar tudo como sempre foi, com todas as brigas e discussões, com as brincadeiras e os conselhos, tudo. Como em todos os meus textos, eu te peço perdão, se algum dia te magoei ou fiz algo que não lhe agradasse, se falei algo errado ou qualquer coisa que você não gostou, peço desculpas. Só te peço, para que nunca se esqueça, que onde quer que você esteja, o que quer que você faça da sua vida, tu sempre vai poder contar comigo, sempre que tu precisar de um ombro amigo ou só de alguém pra desabafar, é só me mandar mensagem que não hesitarei em te responder, sempre e até depois do sempre eu estarei aqui, fazendo meu papel de melhor amiga que lhe prometi. Toma cuidado guri, eu te amo até depois do infinito. Se cuida.
—  Eu.
9168) It's disgusting how this has changed my way of thinking. I can't even look at young children without getting jealous of how thin they are. Absolutely everything revolves back to food or weight for me now.

anonymous asked:

Do u know any sterek fics featuring deaf stiles or deaf Derek?

I’ve tracked down a handful of each for you. I haven’t actually read most of these but they all have a decent number of kudos/comments.

Deaf Stiles

20 things you said that i wasn’t meant to hear  [tumblr ficlet]

Silence is Loudest [E] [117946]

Monday dawned fresh and cool and with a lack of Stilinski.

The buzz in the school changed over the week, once Derek started paying attention to it. No longer was the student body talking about where the students were going on vacation, or lack thereof for the more middle-class populace. They were bandying about a different series of words instead.

“Car crash.”
“Hit and run.”
“Sick. Really sick.”
“Brain damage.”
“Brain dead.”

Perfect [M] [39328]

Stiles Stillinski was in a car accident a few years ago, causing him to lose his hearing and his voice. Determined to live his life, he enrolled at the University of California: Beacon Hills, and joined the football team. In a perfect world, college would be free of bullying, but in Beacon Hills, it’s very much a live, and Stiles is the target. When the new quarterback shows up, Stiles fears the same old treatment, but Derek isn’t as cruel as he appears to be at first.
Please follow this through, because Derek will change throughout the course of the fic.
This fic is AU and totally shatters canon, but to err on the side of safety, assume that there MIGHT be some spoilers. (I’m not sure how, but I don’t want to hear about it if there is.)

WARNINGS: This is a bullying fic, so be prepared for that. A lot of people are rude, mean, or just downright cruel. Also, American Sign Language is not like English, it has it’s own grammar and syntax, however for the purposes of this fic, I will transliterate signing into English sentences.

Silent [G] [28313]

Alone, Stiles could feel the tiredness start to run through his body, the cuts on his body aching and other places hurting which made him wonder how they were hurting before he blinked a few times, eyes lifting towards the windows and the grey sky, Stiles hoped that the pack would find him. Slumping down in to the bonds, Stiles dropped his chin to his chest as tears gathered in his eyes, he felt scared for the first time since the car accident and he hated the fact that he couldn’t hear for anything which could creep up on him, hated that he couldn’t protect himself, squeezing his eyes shut tightly, Stiles tried to keep the tears away as he finally let the tiredness wash over him.

Wild Tonic [M] [11010]

Stiles nodded and smiled again, his teeth flashing brightly and he signed something again, before looking frustrated with himself.

“You’re welcome,” Derek told him, feeling a wave of relief when Stiles’ face brightened. That would’ve been awkward if Stiles hadn’t been trying to say thank you.

“I had a really good time, so yeah. I’m glad you came with me,” he said, feeling his face grow hot. Derek wasn’t usually like this. He wasn’t confident. Sure, he had the looks and he could flirt shamelessly when he got hit on, but he always got shy around the people he genuinely liked, not that there was too many of those.

But Stiles didn’t let him dwell on that. He gripped Derek’s arm, grinned cheekily and pointed at himself before lifting two fingers. It took a while for Derek to get it but when he did, he couldn’t stop a smile from spreading across his face.

Me too.

Deaf Derek

Laughter is the Best Medicine [T] [4432]

He hasn’t always been deaf.

Although, sometimes, he wishes he was. Mainly because he knows what he’s missing. He remembers what the rustle of the wind in the trees sounds like, remembers what kids playing in the playground sounded like, what laughter sounded like.

He misses it. A lot.

Feeling You [T] [6518]

(deaf & temporarily blind Derek)

When Derek loses his sight and hearing saving Scott from an attack, the Stilinski’s take him in.  As nurse and patient Stiles and Derek grow closer, but what will happen when Derek gets better?  Will Stiles be left with a broken heart?

Speak to Me [T] [9168]

Derek became deaf from the fire that took his family long ago, and has refused to speak since. But when he is forced to speak in the court case of the woman who betrayed him long ago, he begrudgingly accepts the help of a newly graduated speech pathologist. Stiles, however, is about to teach a whole lot more.

Give Me a Sign [E] [2215]

Stiles decides to learn sign language so he can communicate better with Derek and he ends up using it to communicate his feelings for him.

Through the Silence, Hold onto Me [T] [5039]

The pack has a run-in with a witch and while the spell that was cast on Stiles had thankfully worn off after her gruesome and timely demise, the spell that got Derek hasn’t seemed to. Or at least there are some lingering side effects. Derek is, for the time being deaf and will only let Stiles get remotely close to him when he’s upset.

Bones Straining Under the Weight [E] [15,645]

One of Stiles’ favorite things about life is Derek Hale’s food blog.  He never expects to meet the man in person.


“Derek,” he says again, and the name feels very strange on his tongue.  “You don’t mean Derek Hale.”

His professor’s eyebrows reach up, eyes widening.  “You read his blog?”

“Uh. Worship. Would be a better more descriptive word.  That is Derek Hale?”

Jimmy chuckles.  "Good-looking guy, huh?“

"You mean to tell me the Food Network hasn’t snatched him up to dethrone everyone else from daytime TV.”

Jimmy smiles a small private smile.  "I don’t think TV is his medium.“

Stiles raises an eyebrow.  "Shy?”

The man laughs heartily at that.  "No, I wouldn’t say that. He just has particular forms of expression, like eyebrows and chili powder.“

9168) Sometimes I wanna detransition.

Not because I don’t want to transition and be a woman… no, god, I want it more than anything in this life. But I’m not strong enough. I’m too weak to be a trans woman in a world that hates us so much, and often wants us dead. I may have been miserable and dysphoric as a man, but at least I got the basic level of respect from those around me. At least I didn’t constantly look over my shoulder in paranoia.
