My friend, Shelby, asked for this: “I want a fic where the whole pack goes camping. Alpha!Derek, Omega!Stiles. Maybe Stiles goes into heat on the trip? At some point I want Stiles to find a naked picture on Derek’s phone. I want there to be Dark!Derek. Surprise me.

I got you … I think.

Derek has been restraining himself for so long, and he doesn’t know how. Maybe he does, but either way it doesn’t matter. Stiles pushes his buttons, and Derek is one always a second away from snapping his jaws around the boys neck to claim him like he wants.

I probably would never have heard of Iggy Azalea, Fifty Shades of Gray, Blurred Lines, American Sniper, et al. if it weren’t for people on the Internet getting very publicly upset about them.

The entertainment industry runs on manufactured controversy! They know that by pushing the right socio-political buttons, they can get more free publicity than anyone twenty years ago even dreamed of! This is at least as old as P. T. Barnum, probably much more so!

It wouldn’t surprise me if within a few years, marketing firms start planting bloggers to gin up anger and denunciations and public attention.

I find myself thinking that if a relationship where the man supports his partner's decisions, constantly boosts their confidence, and when inevitably they argue he comes clean about his mistakes is abusive then sign me up. And I am comfortable saying they have no idea what an abusive (whether emotional, physical, or psychological) truly is. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts-one of my favorite quotes.

It’s a puzzle. I mean, I can understand if you don’t find Killian attractive. If the flirty banter and demeanour are not your thing, then fine. There are many types of men I don’t find attractive just because.

But the thing is, Emma does! She likes that he is flirty and tries to push her buttons. She likes that he is upfront about ‘fancying’ her. She likes the leather and the brooding. She sees beyond his ‘pirate’ past (and if anything, 4x16 proved how un-piratey he was, even at his peak!). 

Taking offhand comments from old episodes as proof he raped or abused women is just crass. I mean A & E would NEVER write a character that way for this show in any case! And they LOVE Hook. No way of getting around that. 

I’ve been in abusive relationships. Not physically, but mentally. And let me say, most abuse is FAR more subtle than anything they are accusing Killian of. It’s words and behaviour. It’s actions, or lack of action.

Give me a man ANY DAY who will fight for me, tell me again and again how much he loves me. Who is always trying to be better. Who is supportive. Who tries to be the best he can for me.

Any goddamn day.

Time for a story (part 24) - Something new

“Sometimes I really miss to be here” Felicity said when they entered the elevator and linked her arm with Oliver’s. “You know, I love being home with Emmeline, but sometimes… sometimes I just miss all of this. I miss work.”

“My offer is still on the table” Oliver explained, pushing the button for the top floor and kissing her temple. “If you want to you can work and I’ll stay home with Emmeline. We did it when I was injured, why not do it again?”

Felicity sighed and leaned her head to his bicep. “I don’t know. Let’s just get this behind and then enjoy our vacation and then we can still decide what we will-”

The elevator came to an abrupt stop. Felicity lost her balance and probably would have landed on the floor if Oliver didn’t show the reaction to put his arms around her and press her to his body, holding her upright.

“Oh my god, are we stuck?!” Felicity almost screeched, pressing herself even closer to her husband’s strong body.

“The elevator is stuck, I guess. Yes” Oliver said pushing the emergency button, but nothing happened. “And the emergency button doesn’t work. I guess they will find us sooner or later. We could pick up where Emmeline interrupted us this morning and- Felicity, are you alright?”

He had tried to softly pull a few inches away, just enough to kiss her, but Felicity’s grip around his waiste had tightened and she had pressed her head even more firmly to his chest. Oliver couldn’t see all of her face, but he was sure that her eyes were screwed shut and breathing was uneven.

“Claustrophobia” she said through gritted teeth. “It’s not that bad. Usually. But usually the elevators don’t get stuck so…”

Oliver rested his chin on the top of her head and rubbed her back slightly.
He had thought he know everything about her. Everything. He had been wrong obviously. He hadn’t known that she was claustrophobic.

Felicity probably knew about all of his fears, but he hadn’t known hers.

“Why didn’t you tell me?” he asked quietly.

“Because it is stupid. Nothing can happen here. I mean… unless the elevator crashes down and we-”

“Pst” he said, kissing the crown of her haid before rubbing her back again. “You’re safe. I’m here.”

“I know” she sighed. “Just keep talking, it helps.”

“You know, whenever I am scared I just think about Emmeline and you and it makes me feel better right away. I picture your face in front of me and I remember the way you smell, the taste of your skin on my lips and-”

The elevator started moving with a jar, making Felicity sigh in relief.

“There we are” Oliver whispered to her ear when the elevator stopped again. This time the doors opened with a low pling! and Felicity slowly let go of Oliver, moving the palms of her hands over her dress until she felt that she looked good enough to go to the board meeting.

Oliver hastily grapped her hand and pulled her closer to him, kissing her temple. He surely needed to ask her what else he didn’t know about her.

He wanted do know everything about her, regardless of how unimportant it felt for her.

I pushed the button on 2/16/2014 - 

A night that changed my life. I had spent hours on my sign and day dreamed of pushing the button - and meeting my idols- every single day. When they didn’t show up to Resolution, I was heart broken. But it made me even more determined! Being chosen for such an experience…..is truly unbelievable. I’m still having a hard time processing that this actually happened to me

I was balling the entire time (clearly) and being guided through the narrow hallways of the Showbox to get backstage is something I will never forget. When I was waiting for my time to get on, I felt like my legs were going to give out, then Paavo started walking towards me, and I was introduced to him. I couldn’t help but run/tackle hug him, almost knocking him off his feet as he said ‘Hello Kyra!’. He brought me out to the stage and Jono, where I hugged him too and he kissed me on the cheek. I looked out to the crowd, and the first thing I thought was, ‘wow, my A&B family looks so fucking beautiful from up here!’, and I immediately had love for every single person in the crowd. We were all one that night. Jono told me to ‘push the button whenever I was ready’, I took a deep breath, drank it all in, and then boom. Next thing I know i’m dancing and crying even harder and Paavo and I are jumping together.

There were so many things I wanted to say to them but everything was happening so fast and I was so overwhelmed that all I could do was hug them and cry. I can’t believe I was given this gift of pushing the button, and making my dreams come true. 

This is something I will never, ever forget and I will cherish it forever.

Thank you USC, thank you Above & Beyond, and thank you to everyone who was there to make my night so special.

Basic Male Cosplay Makeup Tutorial!

aka:  Alex rambles on for 24 minutes about cosplay, binders, wig caps, contacts and makeup with the goal of being at least somewhat helpful?

I had a few requests asking how I did my male makeup for cosplay so here you go!  Apologies for the length, I go into a bit more than just the makeup so it ended up longer than I planned.  Also, I said it ten times in the video and I’m going to say it again here; cosplay makeup is very character and face specific.  This is what I’ve found works for me personally but I both recommend and encourage looking at other tutorials to see what works best for you!

Things I mentioned: 

Other helpful resources:

  • Male vs. Female Contouring Guide
  • This video does an excellent job of showing where and how to EXACTLY contour for a masculine face.
  • For those who want a more dramatic eye try here and here.
  • This is mainly a female makeup tutorial but it’s a really great one and can be applied to male makeup as well so check it out!
  • How to property put on a wig cap/wig.
  • I forgot to mention; use concealer to cover up under eye shadows or dark spots before applying foundation.  Also a good nude lipstick can go a long way in making your lips look more masculine!
