Can't wait to see what she does next

It was extraordinary to look around the room and see Cate Blanchett, whom I’ve worked with twice now, and Sandra Bullock and Rihanna and Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Awkwafina. It felt like a really empowering place to be and really fun. We have a text chain going that’s one of the most epic things. If my phone were stolen, it would be… I’m sure I’m just inviting everyone to hack my phone now.

Thea + Clothes

She’s confused.

She’s changed so much, been flung back and forth through emotions and catastrophes, and she doesn’t know who she is anymore.

Nothing feels right, nothing hangs right.

She wants to curl back up in schoolgirl skirts, curl up on the couch next to her mother.

She wants to wear something tight and revealing, to keep it all inside, and make sure that people are looking at her, but only at the surface, so they don’t know how broken she is.

She wants to wear something loose and comfortable, to spar–not with her father, never again with him. Just to flip and kick and spin, the fabric flowing around her legs, a crop-top keeping her movements free and unhindered. 

She wants the suits, still cute and flirty, but professional, so people look at her like an adult, like someone who is capable and smart and commands respect. 

And she wants the suit. Red, fitted, bold. An echo of Roy, an echo of Ollie, an echo of Malcolm. It never really felt like hers, never really felt like her.

She wants it all, and she wants none of it. None of them are her, not anymore, and she sheds them like second skins. She says goodbye to each iteration of herself as she sloughs them off.

So what’s left when all of them are gone?

Well, won’t that be wonderful to discover?

Kimi ni Todoke Manga Updates

Hey everybody!

I just wanted to share the announcement that was made at the end of Volume 29 (which came out Tuesday, July 25th). 

I’m not going to translate word for word, but the gist of it is that Kimi ni Todoke will end with Volume 30. The next chapter (Chapter 120) will be released in the September issue of Bessatsu Margaret (August 12), and then the countdown to the end begins! The announcement also gives us an idea of what to expect going forward (super vague of course, haha): 

“With the end of the graduation ceremony, there are three people who still await the results of their university entrance exams: Sawako, Kurumi, and Kazehaya. Each of them approaches the moment of fate. And then, Ayane and Ryu have decided to leave their hometown. On the other hand, Chizu will remain in their hometown. The time for departure is increasingly imminent…Sawako and her friends go steadily forward to the future - don’t miss it!” 

This announcement also claims that the September issue of Bessatsu Margaret will include a “special present” (probably Kimi ni Todoke-related). 

I think that Shiina will do about 4 more chapters (maybe 3, maybe 5), so if there are no more hiatuses the series will probably end in November or December of this year. :( 

Below the cut, I’ve included some spoiler-y goodies from Volume 29. As always, sorry for the bad photo quality haha! Enjoy!

I’m always so amazed at how talented Mary Kate Wiles is and what amazing content she creates and is a part of

like her voice is absolutely amazing

and her acting is so great

and when I’m feeling really stressed or anxious I know I can sit and watch one of her YouTube videos and relax because she just has this like calming vibe to her content that feels like sitting down and casually chatting (while crafting)

like when I get overwhelmed craftversations is one of the first things I turn to because it’s so relaxed and lovely

and she just does so many amazing things and I’m very in awe of everything

💜

Wait. If Taylor performs at the VMA’s on Sunday for her first live performance could it be because that’s where her reputation went totally beyond her control for the first time? She would literally be reclaiming the character assassination narrative she hasn’t asked to be a part of since 2009…

  • WHIRL: *having repeatedly displayed a complete and total sociopathic lack of respect for life, willingly, and in full awareness of what he's doing and the consequences it will carry, does something that means the Autobot/Decepticon war WILL happen, and thus over 100 BILLION non-Cybertronian lives will be lost in the ensuing genocidal war, because he has a personal vendetta solely focused on himself*
  • TF FANS: Tee, hee, that lovable scamp! Such hilarity! Give us another joyful quip, you delightful rapscallion! Oh, it's okay that you're awful! After all, your holo-avatar is cute! Oh, I can't wait to see what japes you perpetrate next!
  • CHROMIA: *accidentally kills THREE in a failed attempt to scare Windblade, the bot she's sworn her life to protect, away from Cybertron, having JUST BARELY SURVIVED a Cybertronian nearly wiping all of existence from existence, and to get her away from a power-mad ruler of Cybertron who she views as a dead-certain threat to Windblade/Chromia's homeworld... and who mere weeks later unleashes a living WMD on their homeworld solely to earn political points.
  • TF FANS: YOU ARE SCUM. YOUR ARE THE LOWEST SCUM EVER. WHY IS EVERY PANEL OF THIS BOOK NOT THE ENTIRE CAST SPITTING IN YOUR FACE AND REMINDING YOU OF HOW YOU ARE AN INCOMPETENT EVIL BAG OF FILTH. HOW DARE YOU SAY ANY WORDS EVER, YOU AWFUL, EVIL THING. BOO HISS ON YOU, CHROMIA, BOO HISS ON YOU. NEVER FORGET THE ATROCITY CHROMIA HAS COMMITTED EVER. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

levihan high school (typical shoujo manga ver) au headcanon: where levi is a school delinquent who rarely comes to school and hange is the widely talked about manic genius of the school. levi is in his 3rd year while hange is in her 2nd year and he had definitely heard about her once in a while when he came to school like “have you heard about the girl that almost blew up the lab yesterday”, “i heard that she screamed her ass off while dissecting frog and it’s not because she’s scared” and levi vaguely remembers that he snickered when he heard that because of some lame poop jokes came across his head.

my mom teaches seventh grade English, and after watching "Mirror Gem/Ocean Gem" back to back, she mentions
  • that she's teaching the Hero's Quest/Mythology to her students. The mentor, the protagonist/antagonist, the call to action, the transformation, all that good stuff, and so she asks for some examples, and kids usually will say Harry Potter, Katniss Everdeen, Aang and Korra, what have you. And then
  • Some Kid: "Well I'd say Steven Universe, but he doesn't have any weaknesses!"
  • My Mom Who Hasn't Seen The Whole Show Yet: "Hmm, we'll just have to wait and see."
  • My Mom later when she's recounting this: "So what is his weakness, does he have one?"
  • Me immediately without even thinking: "Well no, that's totally wrong, he does have a weakness, it's his faith in people."
  • Me mentally: oh shit
  • Me mentally: oh this goddamn show
  • Me mentally: My fucking heart can't take this I can't believe this amazing child, SHIT
  • Me aloud: *proceeds to talk about how amazing Steven is for the next ten minutes, how the mirror stunt and the monster buddy thing could have gotten him killed, etc.*
How Killian's going to get the curse lifted ;)
  • *at Zelena's magical hideout*
  • KNOCK KNOCK
  • Zelena: Who could that possibly be? *opens door* What is the pirate doing he-
  • Killian: Question. So what if I just, like, kissed Swan on the cheek? Would that count, or-
  • Zelena: A KISS IS A KISS.
  • *the next day*
  • *Knock from Killian*
  • Zelena: Uhmmmm
  • Killian: But what if it was just an air kiss? Not even on the lips, just-
  • Zelena: OHMYGOD. SHUT UP.
  • *next day, knock knock*
  • Killian: BUT WHAT IF SHE KISSES ME FIRST?! Does that disqualify it, or-
  • Zelena: I can't even.
  • *next day, knock knock*
  • Zelena: Rumple, get the door. My nerves can't handle this.
  • Rumple: Pirate?
  • Killian: Ah, Rumple! Just the man I've been waiting to see! I've been wanting to ask your advice. So specifically, for the curse terms, if I kissed Swan for, let's say, five minutes-
  • Rumple: In a row?!
  • Killian: I know, but I'm worried I wouldn't be allowed to kiss her for longer. So, uh, that's my question.
  • Rumple: *can this guy even breathe* *wat* *groans* Let me ask-
  • Zelena: I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE. OKAY?! I'LL LIFT THE CURSE. IF YOU WILL LEAVE ME ALONE, FOR FIVE MINUTES, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY-
  • *30 seconds later*
  • Roland: Papa, who is that and why is he running down the street shouting about the location of a bird?
  • Robin: Ah, that is Hook, I believe.
  • Roland: Yes but why does he tackling that woman-
  • Regina: Time for bed, darling.
  • THE END : D
