In Spain, Santander Hopes a New Arts Center Will Reinvigorate the City
The Botín Center is a rare example of family philanthropy in Spain. To some, however, it promotes the culture of money more than the culture of art.
By Raphael Minder

JULY 3, 2017


The center was inaugurated by King Felipe VI and opened with two very different exhibitions. One floor is partitioned into separate rooms to hang 81 drawings by Francisco de Goya on loan from the Prado museum in Madrid. The walls also help protect the fragile works from damaging light.

In contrast, the other floor remains open and bathed in natural light, even if some of the installations by the artist Carsten Höller are already brightly lit. Mr. Höller’s “Y” show opens onto a light corridor, which he also compared to a uterus, that lets the viewer choose between two itineraries exploring the relationship between life and death. At one end, Mr. Höller suspended two bird cages filled with canaries, a bird valued for its bright singing and color but also as a harbinger of death when detecting toxic gases in mines. Because of the center’s construction delay, Mr. Höller said he had the rare opportunity of “having three years to prepare one exhibition.” His goal, he said, was also “not to take anything away from this immaculate new space.”

Dating the Riddler would include

- Him most likely falling for your intelligence
- He would totally respect you, and would love helping you with anything he could
-”Riddle me this, (Y/N)”
-”Ed, you’ve told me that riddle three times today, can you please pick a new one?”
- You helping him with any and all of his insane projects 
- You actually learning a lot about engineering by accident
- The “Gotham Dork squad” being at your almost total disposal.
- Long nights where you both just stay up and talk about anything and everything
-If you’re in school he’d totally make sure you were passing all of your classes
- Even if the way he chooses to get you said good grades isnt exactly legal
- Dates at museums and art galleries
-”(Y/N) do you like this painting?”
-”Its a bit tacky but I can dig it”
-The next day that painting shows up in your house
-Him being literally the most loyal to you
- Midnight cuddles 
- Becoming friends with the rest of the rogues gallery

Concept: Bruce Wayne is actually 5'8, and his Batman boots have Lifts so Batman appears to be like 6'2. All the other heroes and villains are their Tall canonical heights. This is why nobody suspects Bruce is Batman: “hey I think Wayne might be Batman???’ ‘Nah all those heroes are Tall and Wayne is, like, my height. There’s no way. Also isn’t Batman tall?’

Mere Speculation

Part Five

Pairing: Jughead x reader

Summary: Jughead digs deeper into the new girl’s past to understand her connection to Jason Blossom

Warnings: Mentions of death, infrequent swearing

Part One

Jughead spent the night researching all the boarding schools in the state. He read newsletters, combed through websites, looking for any trace of (Y/N). He had checked twenty-seven different schools before he found the one. He had got frustrated and simply Googled her name. The search led him to the website of an art gallery. (Y/N)’s work had been displayed there for a month after she won a state-wide competition. The art itself was amazing. She had managed to capture the movement of everyday scenes in her paintings. Jughead felt that just by looking at a painting of a busy city street, he could hear the noise of traffic and smell the pollution from the cars.

The article told him the name of her old school, which he found was a little over an hour’s journey by bus.

“Are you out of your corn-fed mind, Jim?” The words exploded from the CMOs mouth. You bit your lip to stop the giggle that had started to bubble when the captain had first spoke, and threatened to come out with the exclamation. You managed to turn it into a cough, but Leonard knew you better. “That’s enough from the peanut gallery, Y/N. Back to work.”

“You are, undoubtedly, the most competent doctor in the ‘fleet, Bones,” Jim argued.

“This says, and I quote, ‘because of Doctor McCoy’s obvious camera appeal -”

“You’re articulate, and intelligent,” Jim interrupted. Leonard raised an eyebrow and continued.

“Obvious camera appeal, incredible intellect and recent commendations, we feel he is the perfect choice for the Starfleet Science Division recruitment video. So they said intelligent twice, is that how you’re playing this, Jim?” Leonard paused, waiting for the captain to respond. Captain Kirk grinned at you and you felt your cheeks burn as you shook your head behind Leonard’s shoulder.

“Lieutenant Y/L/N, you think Bones is a good-looking man, don’t you?” Kirk asked. You felt the colour drain from your cheeks as Leonard turned to you.

“Jim, don’t be an ass, Y/N isn’t into men.” He leapt to your defence. Your own eyebrow raised at the comment.

“Uh, yeah I do,” you retorted, and suddenly felt the colour rising in your cheeks again. Leonard’s brow furrowed, and Captain Kirk looked like a cat who’d caught the proverbial canary.

“I’ve never once seen you with one,” Leonard countered.

“Because I’m single,” you retorted.

“We’ve been out here in this tin can for three years, you can’t possibly tell me you haven’t at least been tempted to hook up with someone,” Leonard scoffed. “Are you sure you’re into men?”

“Hard to hook up with someone who isn’t into you,” you muttered, and rolled your eyes. You met Leonard’s expectant gaze and sighed. “Yes, Leonard, I’m sure.”

“Now we’ve resolved that, good. Y/L/N, is Bones attractive?” The captain had a knowing grin and you felt just a little sick. 

“Yes sir,” you nodded. Kirk’s grin grew.

“Do you think having him interviewed about Starfleet would increase enlistment?”

“Wouldn’t hurt.” You kept your answers short. Leonard scoffed and crossed his arms.

“Dammit Jim, I’m a doctor, not a model!” He protested. “And who would honestly enlist after listening to me drone on about -”

“Y/L/N, I apologize for being so direct, but is Leonard the kind of man that women fantasize about?” Kirk interrupted right as Leonard was ramping up.

“Uh, sir?”

“Would you have an anonymous encounter with Bones?” Kirk asked. You wanted to melt into the floor.

“That’s hardly appropriate, Jim, she’s my charge nurse,” Leonard protested. “And she is my friend. You’re making this awkward.”

“Of course, Y/L/N, no need to respond, I’m sorry, I was out of line,” the captain apologized. You looked at Leonard, who looked embarrassed and broken, and back at Captain Kirk, who seemed to think the whole thing was wildly amusing - Leonard’s discomfort with the idea that he was handsome and desirable, and your obvious discomfort and utterly transparent feelings. And your heart hurt for your friend.

“No, I’ll answer,” you heard yourself say, and before you could stop yourself, you continued. “Leonard is exactly the kind of man I would have an unprofessional and inappropriate encounter with. I wouldn’t regret it for a minute. If I might use a phrase your Iowan background is familiar with, I would bang him like a screen door in a hurricane. And I think having him as the face of Starfleet Science Division is inspired and brilliant. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have work to do.” You moved as quickly as you could back to the far side of MedBay, and attended to your sole patient. Leonard kept his distance for the rest of the shift, and you progressively became less and less certain of your admission, and started to wonder if you would need to apply for a transfer. As you washed up before leaving, you got lost in thoughts of packing and transferring to another ship.

“I agreed to do the spot. But only if I could have my best nurse with me.” Leonard’s voice started you from your thoughts. You turned and leaned against the sink as you dried your hands.

“Good plan. Baxter is stunning as well, between the two of you -”

He clapped a hand on your shoulder and smiled. “Baxter’s cute, but whoever stands beside me is going to have to be bang like a screendoor in a hurricane material,” he winked. “I’ve told Jim that I’ll only do it if you do.”

“Oh.” You weren’t sure what else to say.

“But first, I’d like to investigate that inappropriate and unprofessional encounter you spoke about, since we’re both off-duty.”

Part1 Part2

Part3

            It was one of those days where (y/n) spends her afternoon at the coffee shop just drinking coffee and reading novels that she hasn’t finish. She sat at her usual spot near the window until she heard someone knocked on the window, she look up and saw Bucky waving and grinning at her which she waved back and motion him to come in. The door pushed open revealing Bucky, he went to the cashier to order the coffee and pays, he sat down next to (y/n) and looking at the plastic bag beside her chair, “Buying some artsy stuffs?” he smiles, “Yup, that’s what I do twice a week” she smiles back at him. They both sat in silenced for awhile until the waiter came, “your coffee, sir” , “thankyou” he smiles.

           “So, you hang out here a lot?” he asks while sipping his coffee, “Not really, just when I have some free time” she smiles while putting the novel inside her bag, “anyway my mom said hi, and thanks for making such a great art” Bucky said, “Glad to know she likes it, anyway you don’t have anything to do?” she asks, “Not really, my girlfriend been busy taking photoshoots for the new Gucci campaign” , “Girlfriend? You mean… fiancé?” she winks at him playfully, “how do you know?” he asks, “c’mon James Barnes, you both are everywhere in social media. People known your for your works and your hot appearance, and Dot… I almost saw her face in every magazines” she chuckles and continue, “so, it’s quite easy to know that you both bring it to the next steps” she smiles at him. Bucky only smiles at her words and admiring her, he never saw the smile so genuine like hers, he knows it’s wrong by talking to (y/n) and hanging out with her because he promised Dot not to hang out with other girls, but there’s something about her which makes Bucky wanted to know her more.

           “I heard so on the phone the other day talking to Mrs. Carter?” Bucky asks curiously, “Ohh, yes I’m her TA and she is been the greatest professor I’ve ever known, not to mention her husband Steve. He always welcome me at their home to do the study with Mrs. Carter” she explains, “Steve is my bestfriend actually, and when I heard you talking to Peggy the other day, I wonder why Steve didn’t told me about you and your works, if he tells me sooner I would be glad to see every paintings you got” he says, “Don’t tell me you’re working with Steve? I mean he said that he is a lawyer but I didn’t know if it’s true that he is working at Barnes lawfirm” , “Yes, he is working in my company but we’ve been friends since kids, he is like a family so does Peggy” , “Wow… now I felt like the earth is so small” she laughed which makes Bucky giggled, her laughs is kinda cute actually.

           Looking at her watch it’s already 2 p.m, which she needs tidy her store for opening tomorrow since today is her close day, “anyway, it’s nice talking to you Bucky. I have to go and clean up my small un-noticed gallery” , “May I come with you? I don’t have nothing to do today” he asks, “sure, if you want to” she smiles at him. They walk together to (y/n) gallery and open the store, “Well… this is my gallery” she motions her hands to the room, “and I live upstairs, at the basement is the rest of my unfinished works” she speaks when closing her door, Bucky take a good look of her paintings and captivated by everything she draws, “wow… (y/n) how could you draw amazingly like this?” he asks, “My mom used to draw when she is a kid but stopped because she choose to be a chef, that’s what my grandma wants her to be” (y/n) talks nervously while playing with hem of her sweater, “Do you want something maybe?” she asks, “No, I’m good thanks” he smiles at him, “I think I’m going to change, you can just wait here” she nodded and run to her bedroom.

           Walking around her little gallery Bucky admiration at her keeps growing and suddenly he saw a small paintings of an elephant with a pink tutu holding flowers, it looks so cute cause it definitely drew by a kid. He picked it up from the wall and starring at he drawing and smiles to himself, he interrupted by (y/n) voices, “That’s the first drawing I drew when I was 3 years old” she chuckles walking towards him, Bucky eyeing her feature. She has changed into shorts and big comfy t-shirt, and her hair tied into messy bun also she washed her make-up even it’s just a natural make-up, she even looks beautiful without anything on her face, “I guess, the art has been in you since born, huh?” he smirks and God, his smirks makes (y/n) wanted to throw herself onto him, “I seriously didn’t even know why I drew that, I mean… an elephant with a tutu and ballet shoes? It’s just didn’t make any sense” she laughed at herself and starring at her drawings, “I think it’s cute” Bucky says and placing it back onto the wall, “When will you graduate?” he asks, “Next month, and I can’t wait for it. I just finished the test this morning, and my essay has been approved by Mrs. Carter, I just can’t wait to have my own exhibit someday” Bucky can’t keep his eyes off her, the way she talks with so much confident and those sparks in her eyes, he loves everything about this girl which he shouldn’t. He knew this is wrong, knowing he is getting married in couple months, but he can’t control his own feeling, “Bucky?” she calls, “Yes, (y/n)?” , “do you wanna to go to Mrs. Carter exhibit next week in new york? I’ll be glad if you make it, but if you don’t want to it’s okay” she smiles nervously, this is wrong that’s what Bucky thinks but… Peggy is Steve wife, and Steve is his bestfriends, so Dot must be understand if he said he is going to this exhibit, and with that Bucky said, “I’ll come” and Bucky loves seeing (y/n)’s smile that reached her eyes.

NB: I really enjoy writing this part and I’m really sorry for not posting yesterday and the day before yesterday, my cousin and my uncle is sick so my and my family went to check them up. anyway send me feedback, and I hope you enjoy reading this!xx

anonymous asked:

More than the loss of images, what's bothering me the most, is the lost of my list of contacts, friends, favorites, and all the conversations via PM, accumulated over the years. Is all lost?

Everything to do with the old gallery has already been answered on the faq page of this Tumblr.

To summarise though:
▪ We lost the server configuration
▪ We lost all the database files (e.g
Submission data, pm’s, clubs, friends, updates, news, everything)
▪ We lost all the files of EVERY submission EVER posted to yGallery
▪ We lost the database configuration
▪ We’ve lost many hundreds of hours of our lives coding the new site for everyone (voluntarily though)

Things we haven’t lost:
▪ An amazingly great and supportive community
▪ Determination to remake yGallery back up to its former glory and more (for the fans and for ourselves)
▪ Hope that we can become better than we once were.


We constantly get messages asking:
▪ “When are we coming back?”
▪ “When is beta?”
▪ “Is anything going to be transferred?”
▪ We’ve even had (recently) something along the lines of “is the site dead forever and you guys are just taking us for a ride?”

Honestly, that last one almost broke me, I felt quite offended. I wish I could explain to everyone just how much effort and time we’re putting into the recreation of yGallery.

Again, I’m going to summarise some of our most frequent questions:
▪ “What happened to the site?” | A bad man happened.
▪ “Will anything be transferred?” | Nope, even if we had the old data, things would be far too incompatible.
▪ “When is beta?/when us the site coming back?” | Within the next 5 and a half months.

Okay, so, this was way longer than I had initially intended. It’s 5 in the morning and these questions have been lurking over me for ages.
I do hope this answered questions though. Despite any negative connotations, we are still happy and upbeat. We’re excited for when we finally can show everyone our work. We’re admittedly extremely nervous as to if everyone will like it.. but regardless, we’re excited as well.
We won’t let y!Gallery die. We promise.

Regards, Jake.
I hope you’re all well.
