Rachel Gold


Ummmm why hasn’t tumblr been talking about this Crazy Rich Asians movie?? An american movie with an ALL ASIAN CAST?? WITH AN ASIAN DIRECTOR??? STARRING CONSTANCE WU??? PLUS MICHELLE YEOH?! Ya’ll sleeping.

The story follows Rachel Chu (Wu), an American-born Chinese economics professor, who travels to her boyfriend Nick’s (Golding) hometown of Singapore for his best friend’s wedding. Before long, his secret is out: Nick is from a family that is impossibly wealthy, he’s perhaps the most eligible bachelor in Asia, and every single woman in his ultra-rarefied social class is incredibly jealous of Rachel and wants to bring her down. 

Directed by John M. Chu

Hey tumblr so I need your help! My school always had one of those “Read Across America” maps with young adult novels or romances or whatever (evidently, I’m American) but I’ve never seen anything comparable for wlw. I’ve tried to rely on my memory and on other people’s recs but I’m only (exactly) halfway through. Any suggestions to fill in these missing states? I’ve tried to avoid stories that take place across multiple locations. Or offer more options for the ones I already have, the more the merrier.

 Since this post that Janel and I made, a few of you have sent me recommendations for LGBTQIA+ books so I thought I would make a kind of always growing list for people. (In bold are the books I have personally read and can give you details on if you message me). The list is sooooo long, which makes me super happy, and please make sure to message me if I am missing one you love! Also, currently working on adding Goodreads links and genre to all of these to make things easier.

tomatohugger  asked:

Could you possibly recommend any book with a love triangle? Preferrably all 3 are girls.

I can! You know, I’ve encountered this question before and wasn’t able to find much, but this time I was determined and dug a little deeper. Here’s a list of 29! Some are traditional love triangles, some are poly relationships, but all are f/f/f.

The only one I’ve read and can recommend is My Year Zero by Rachel Gold, but I’ve heard great things about Lunaside and Chameleon Moon (poly triad) as well!

Hope that helps!

Home - Fred Weasley Imagine

A/N: yaaay! I’m back baby! haha so sorry for the delay but here it is :D


  • Anonymous said: Are you planning to do a part two to the A Right To Be Wrong? Maybe something where Fred tells Molly the whole story and she basically takes the reader in as one of her own children? I think that would be awesome! 
  • Anonymous said: Ok, I know requests are closed, but can you have this ask till they are open again? Please your writings are the best ones I’ve ever read, can you do something like the one you’ve write (Draco’s Girl) but with Fred? But a little bit different, idk, my heart, soul and body needs this, you can change what you want, but pleeeeease I need this

“But what if they hate me?”

“Love, trust me, they wouldn’t hate you” Fred said bringing his girlfriend closer to him and kissing her forehead.

“I’m a Malfoy, Fred” she said worriedly. It had been almost two months since the Malfoy family had disowned (Y/N) for dating Fred Weasley and standing up for herself. She was going to spend the Christmas break at Hogwarts but of course, there was not a chance that her boyfriend was going to let her spend Christmas alone. So she was going to spend it at the famous Burrow. “And even my own family hates me.”

“First of all, you’re nothing like the rest of your family and that’s why they don’t like you” George assured her. “And besides, Ron, Ginny and I already think you’re great so basically you have half of the family covered” he said shrugging his shoulders.

“That’s not true! There are five left” she pointed out. “And Percy already doesn’t like me!”

“Percy doesn’t count” the twins said at the same time. “He’s not even coming home for Christmas. And I’ve already told Bill and Charlie everything about you. I’m sure they’re going to love you” Fred added.

“Yeah, and dad likes pretty much everyone” George assured her. “So that only leaves mum” he said with a smile making the girl even more nervous.

“Great” she said trying to smile.

She knew all about Molly Weasley and she had always wanted to meet her. She sounded like the perfect mother and she knew how much all of her children, and Harry and Hermione, loved her. So it was only natural that she would be terrified to meet the woman.

“I’d like to take this time to announce that I’ll be returning to my Phantom family at the end of the month! June 28th will be my first performance back as Christine Daae and I couldn’t be happier! I’ll be on 6 times a week for the first two weeks of July and then back to my regular alternate schedule Wednesday nights and Saturday mats!” (From Rachel Eskenazi-Gold’s Insta)

anonymous asked:

can u rec some jewish wlw books with a love story and a happy ending? ya is my preferred genre but im willing to step out of it

In YA, there’s Echo After Echo by Amy Rose Capetta (which I loved) and My Year Zero by Rachel Gold (which I didn’t, for reasons I enumerate in my GR review, but other Jewish wlws did, so far be it for me to omit it from this space!). You don’t have to step too far out of YA for Shira Glassman’s work, though; check out The Second Mango for Jewish wlw fantasy.

Just a Few: Queer Nerds in YA


If you aren’t watching Rachel’s fucking crazy season of the Bachelorette, all you need to know is she sent BOTH of them home because she’s fucking smart. Be like Rachel. 

The Doctor Falls: What makes a good cliffhanger?

Steven Moffat does this particular trick in his writing, where he writes for multiple types of viewers at the same time.

He writes for the casual viewer by providing intrigue through the appearance of another Doctor on screen, but he also writes for the hardcore fans. He writes for the people who will immediately recognise David Bradley’s voice and will, just from those few lines of dialogue, be able to piece together that this is the first Doctor just before his regeneration.

Interestingly, Moffat also writes for fans of the future, who are rewatching this episode and are already aware that the cliffhanger is coming. Some cliffhangers solely rely on shock value and are only fun because you don’t know how the story is being resolved, but once you do they lose all their appeal and are simply a footnote to the rest of the story. But then there are cliffhangers which are just great moments: The Doctors “I’m coming to get you” speech to Rose and the Daleks in Bad Wolf, the triumphant act break of Wicked or Luke and Rey staring at each other on top of a Cliff in The Force Awakens. All these are thrilling moments that exceed the usual appeal of a cliffhanger because they do more than just ask a question. They hold up over time because they have a certain joy to them, so even when you already know them by heart every time you watch them you still feel that same excitement and thrill as goosebumps form on your skin like they did on the first watch. 

Regarding The Doctor Falls, this is of course in part down to Rachel Talalay’s phenomenal direction. The moment when it clicks and the viewer makes the connection to whats going on, isn’t when Bradley announces himself to be the original Doctor, but when we are shown that blurred silhouette with the long white scarf. The former is simply a confirmation of the suspicion carefully seeded in the viewer’s mind by the latter. Through the use of the snowstorm, Talalay evokes the aesthetic of 60s black and white television and manages to sell the viewer on the resemblance between the two actors before Bradleys face is even visible on the screen. 

Additionally, the snowstorm is also mirrored in the music: Murray Gold’s decision to score this scene with something close to the sound of an orchestra tuning their instruments is, in my opinion, one of the best choices he’s ever made. The turbulent sounds of flutes and strings playing over each other perfectly mirror the roaming blizzard around the Doctor. But then as the mysterious figure of the first doctor enters the picture there is a shift in the music. We hear more of the brass section as they play a few notes of something that as many people have pointed out sounds very similar to the music in An Adventure in Space and Time. As the snowstorm lifts and the picture clears the bubbling incoherent instruments align with the leading brass sounds to form one triumphant final chord of hope and excitement. Which really is a fitting preview of the final episode of this beloved incarnation of the timelord.


#holy shit #they gave us glimpses of a dynamic between these three in the first season #but now i know for sure we need to buckle in #what they’re doing with these three #giving us the future the present and the (almost - quinn isn’t quite ready to let go) past #showing quinn passing the reins on to rachel not only in showrunning terms but /mentoring/ terms #i’m pretty sure will kill me by the end of the season #and not just because i am so here for women passing on power and women teaching women and so on #but because /look at these fucking reactions/ #this is gonna be a bumpy ride #we have madison who has ‘wanted to be in this business since she was a little girl’ #who seems so soft but is going to develop her own claws #has already shown an edge of teeth when she made herself a field producer #who pushed herself and another woman to tears and enjoyed the shit out of it #and then we have rachel who pushed madison so effortlessly #who is so naturally gifted at manipulation #who knows just how to twist a knife and /hates it/ #hates herself for what she so easily does to other people #how she can be so blinded by an end goal she makes a child sob until she vomits #who is always running ahead and looking back at the mess she’s left but still not slowing  #and then quinn #quinn who is smiling #who is enjoying this #who is FEEDING off of watching her monster make her own #who is so proud of her goldie because #(not only is rachel so good at what she does) #she’s using what quinn taught her and sliding into a role that rachel despised yesterday #she’s watching rachel Get It #seeing rachel realize how ruthless you need to be #seeing rachel breaking madison and smiling #because she knows rachel isn’t only going to survive #she’s going to thrive
