BIG-NEWS!

Call me naive, but I really don’t think Rebecca will be pregnant. Especially not after the ‘’Which village lady has some big news for her fella?’’ spoiler. This is obviously about Vic and I don’t think they will call it ‘’big news’’ if she only thinks she’s pregnant, which means I think she must be certain about it. 

Mod Update

Hi everyone! It’s mod Ryn and I’m here to tell you some Big News. 

Today, I came out officially as a trans boy, and I’m requesting that everyone please pretty please try to use he/him pronouns for me.

With that, I’m also going to be going by mod Logan now :)

Thank you so much for your understanding and support!

-Logan

Hi Logan! It’s great to see you back! I won’t have access to a laptop for a few days as I’m in Tokyo on holiday and thus just on mobile, so if you’d like to edit your mod page to the correct name and pronouns, please do!

Casting, rest of the Season - Stephen Amell was live in Facebook...

Stephen Amell was live in Facebook and he comented on people being negative about the cast news from yesterday. I personaly don’t like negativity. 

About the casting news I’m pretty much

The news had been floating around already. KC has a contract for all the shows so I’m not surprised she will become a regular again, is not all that big news IMO.

Over on Twitter @pursuit23 adds:

How come the #Arrow article doesn’t mention Black Siren is teaming up with Artemis

When asked about Madison also becoming a regular he answered “doutful”

I’m not interested enough to build conjectures about both Black Siren and Artemis, I’m more on a waiting to see mode. I’m pretty sure something interesting can come from this.

And if I’m honest I’m not as surprised by Black Siren (a bad with potential) coming back for Season 6 as I am about the traitor Artemis surviving Season 5 after the stunt she pulled on 5x17.

On the other hand I’m guessing the Showrunners dropped the idea of keeping with the Flashbacks, in case point from Season 6 to Season 1, as KC it seems is not going to be E1 Laurel again.

So no more Flashbacks…?

Stephen moves on to talk about 5x18 to 5x23 and the way he’s excited about it.

He hasn’t read 5x23 script yet but he did read 5x22 and he’s all

My Oh My. It has the chance to really really awesome.

I want awesome, I want great and epic. Seeing Stephen Amell eyes spark like that when he’s talking about it gives me hope that Arrow will deliver.


About 5x18 Stephen Amell says

“…a lot of tough stuff for Oliver right now and I’m very very pleased with where we took it in episode 18. The execution of episode 18 in my mind was harder than the execution of 5 17 because the episode is called “Disbanded” and I felt like it was murky waters but I think we navigated them well.”

This really made me think about what is expecting us tomorrow. We know it’s going to be Oliver trying to make the Team stand down on the fight with Prometheus bringing in BRATVA.

We knew it was murky waters not only because of the Team and BRATVA but also Helix coming into play. I don’t think that untill this next episode Oliver knows with whom is Felicity involved with (she didn’t tell them when he asked) this is the episode where he finds out; this is the episode where Oliver will try to have Felicity also stand down and she will press on.

I’m hopeful that they did navigate the murky waters well. I’m pretty sure SA and the actors did, but as we know what comes up on the screen is not only the actors work but also the work of Showrunners and Producers. So I’m here expecting the best, hoping the best…

Under the cut a side note on Anne Rice and Tom Cruise…

OP 860 - Random Thoughts

My favourite parts of the OP 860 official translation:

  • Porkswagon! hahahaha
  • Major Undertaker.Brilliant play on words.
  • “This wedding is big news! …”
    “But the whole underworld knows about it! Old news!”
    “… News worth shipping? Hardly!”
    (namibean knows what I particularly like about the last line in isolation XDD )

Not-so-favourite:

  • “The Hider” (I prefer “The Concealer”)
  • “Queen of the Pleasure District” (because “Queen of the Pleasure Quarter” has a nicer alliteration)

Other random thoughts:

  • I like “Charlotte Katakuri” better than “Charlotte Dogtooth” but I must say that “Dogtooth” does have a sound and feel that matches his appearance. And I agree with namibean that he looks like a mixture of Law and Zoro, but I’d throw Gladius in there too. XD
  • Right now I’m imagining a Heath Ledger!Joker-type mouth for Katakuri. I think it’s because of the scar that’s visible in the close-up panel.
  • After the exchange between Jinbei and Aladdin, I feel apprehensive about the chances of Jinbei’s joining the Straw Hats. At this point, I really really want him to join them but I get the sense that he will either be obliged to return to Fishman Island or Luffy will tell him point-blank to go back to them and help. :/
  • Stussy’s face is drawn so similar to Pudding’s in chapter 859. The large, detailed eyes and the ultra-feminine lips.
  • If that lot are the tyrants of the underworld… Does that mean the World Economic Journal is not to be trusted? I mean, its president is classed together with these other suspicious characters.
  • The candy escalator looks like such a pain to draw. The railings are so detailed - even all the way up at the top! I applaud Oda and his assistants.

anonymous asked:

I'm just laughing out loud right now... media is running that Shawmila's cover like a love interest again and it's just soooo convenient after all the other big news on the media this last week. Well done, girls, well done! ;)

Ugh I’m so sick of it 😷 like why? TBH atm all the media wants and needs is information and answers. You give them that and eventually they go away, but mgmt don’t want that because it keeps them talking and about what a non-existent romance? it’s sooo obvious can they get a new play book already???

Big Sean raised $100,000 for the Flint water crisis because the fight is far from over

  • Though Big Sean is living out in Los Angeles these days, it’s clear he hasn’t forgotten where he came from. 
  • The rapper revealed that through his Sean Anderson Foundation, he has raised about $100,000 for the people of Flint, Michigan.
  • In spite of the fact that the Republican-controlled House shuttered their investigation in December, Sean feels there’s far more work to be done in restoring this community to full health.
  • “I just know it’s not even close to being over,” Sean told Daily Show host Trevor Noah. "In that situation, I feel like, it wasn’t a natural disaster. It’s something that should’ve been prevented and could’ve been prevented. So it’s just disgusting to think about the damages that these families and even kids have to go through with the lead poisoning.“ Read more

Fandom Fic Rec Days

The Fandom Fic Rec Days are back!

It is easy to make people look at art; all you need is a reblog. But when it comes to make people want to read fanfiction, it can get just a little more tricky.

To give writers more recognition, and to celebrate their stories, we’ve decided to organize the Fic Rec Days.

On February 10th, 11th, and 12th, you’re invited to rec your favourite fics, from the all time faves to the WIPs you’re currently enjoying.

How? In any way you want!

  • Create a post saying why people should read the fic!
  • Draw some fanart!
  • Create graphics/aesthetics!
  • Make a fic rec list!
  • Make a mix!
  • And so on.

Anything, really; there’s no way of rec’ing worth less than another.

This way, you will:

  1. Promote writers’ fics, and maybe get them new readers.
  2. Make their day, they will be super happy!
  3. Maybe encourage them to write more (win-win!)

Any rules/extra information?

  • Tag your posts with #ficrecdays
  • Tag your fandom/ship.
  • You can always queue if you’re not available!
  • Readers, please consider leaving a comment on the fics you liked!

Above all else, have fun, make people happy (writers and new readers alike!)

Reblog to spread the word, and see you then! :D

Sami people persuade Norway pension fund to divest from Dakota Access
The Sami parliament, representing indigenous people also known as Lapps, has convinced Norway’s second largest pension fund to ditch the oil pipeline project

In an act of international solidarity between indigenous peoples, the Sami parliament in Norway has persuaded the country’s second largest pension fund to withdraw its money from companies linked to a controversial oil project backed by Donald Trump.

The project to build the 1,900km Dakota Access oil pipeline across six US states has prompted massive protests from Native American activists at the Standing Rock Sioux reservation.

This week, after lobbying by the Sami parliament, Norway’s local authority pension fund KLP announced it would sell of shares worth $58m in companies building the pipeline.

Vibeke Larsen, president of the Sami parliament, said the pension fund announced the move when she arrived at a meeting in Oslo to discuss Dakota Access.

“We feel a strong solidarity with other indigenous people in other parts of the world, so we are doing our part in Norway by putting pressure on the pension funds,” she told the Guardian.

The Sami – sometimes called Lapps in English – are an indigenous people living in the Arctic area of Sápmi in the far north of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia’s Kola peninsula.

I never thought I’d get to see club penguin’s iceberg tip but here we are, probably 10 years since I stopped believing it was possible, and dreams have come true. (Excuse the sniff in the middle - I was holding back tears)
