a cuppa for me

nickdsagarThe conversation went something like this – Me- “I miss England man.” -

Dom- “Tell me about it!” -
Me- “What I’d do for a cuppa” -

Dom- “What I’d do for a pint!” -

Me- “Ahhh Top geezer! Couple of cheeky ones later ?” -

Dom- “Of course mate” 🍻🇬🇧 -

Or was it vice versa 😜 #WhoKnows#JustACoupleOfLadsChillin 😎

Cosplay Music Videos are Awesome

In case you didn’t know, Cosplay Music Videos or CMVs are a thing, a really awesome thing. I went on a CMV youtube spiral recently and figured I’d share a few that particularly struck me so if it’s your cuppa you too can have all the feelings.


Like Sad Feelings 

[SNK CMV] - Say Something by Lume Cosplay

Attack on Titan to the song ‘Say Something’, you know you’re gonna cry. This is an amazing display of how a CMV can take an idea that just wouldn’t work the same way in a fanvid. The use of stillness is really effective here. Lovely.

[NGE CMV] Beside You by WaffleswithSpain

Neon Genesis Evangelion, another one which I ended watching go ‘wow, ouch’. This vid uses the editing of the video to do some neat story telling and visual metaphor. There’s so much craft out there in CMVs I’m impressed, it’s so cool!


Or Happy Feelings!

[No.6 CMV] Made For You by WaffleswithSpain

A modern soulmate AU for No.6, don’t mind if I do! CMVs can totally fill a storytelling/fic kind of joy too. I’m really excited for CMVs that execute telling a story well. It’s really hard to do! Some CMV creators have clearly figured out what works and it’s a pleasure to watch. I look forward to finding more vids like this as hopefully more CMV creators try outside-of-canon story telling.

Viktor x Yuuri - All I Want for Christmas (Yuri!!! On Ice CMV) by Uptown Cosplay

Yuri!!! on Ice, Victuuri, unsurprisingly this is my favorite of what I’ve been watching (how many times have I watched this CMV, lets just say lots). I can’t help grinning every time. Characters I ship going on adorable dates? Yes A++ The nuance of the acting too! (like all of these videos have lovely acting, possibly I have too many feelings about Victor’s eyebrows and slight smile at the beginning? Also Yuuri’s excitement). 


Something I love about CMVs, which the YOI vid hits for me particularly well, is this telling of queer stories. Fandom talks a lot about representation and fic obviously is pretty great at taking a source and telling non-straight stories with it. But there’s a pretty obvious lack of music video/movie mediums telling queer stories. CMVs are this wonderful treasure trove of happy adorable queer relationships and it’s just so joyful to me. Not every CMV is that, there are also angsty queer ship CMVs and those are great too!, but I’ve found that the happy ones to be surprisingly addressing of a need I hadn’t realized was still unmet (I did do that fairly thorough search for official music videos with LGBT content a while ago, which maybe I’ll post recs from soon if anyone is interested).

Anyways, long post tl;dr cosplay is cool, cosplayers are doing some really impressive things in their videos and as a person who likes fanvids it’s a fascinating growing fannish production area. Also, it gives me all the feelings.

Nipping Down for Tea

@outlanderedandoverhere finished her BEAUTIFUL knitted jacket/sweater for Sindy Claire, you can view the photoset here. Of course, the very last photo in the set gave me a wee bit of inspiration.


My eyes opened groggily and I stretched luxuriously. Jamie still slept beside me, arms around my waist. I laughed when I realized one of his hands cupped my breast. It was something he’d done since the very first time we’d lain together.

My mouth was suddenly dry and I had a desperate need for tea. I began extricating myself from my husband when the hand cupping my breast squeezed it. I glanced over at him and saw the smirk on his face. Rolling my eyes, I swatted his hand away and slipped out of bed.

“Where are you going?”

“Just down to the kitchen for some tea.”

“Bring me a cuppa?”

“Sure.”

Groping blindly for the clothes on the floor, my hand found his Barbour shirt, which I slipped back on.

“I will say that shirt becomes ye verra weel, Sassenach.”

“And here I was thinking how nice your ass looked in those trousers!”

He made a grab for my own backside and I squeaked, getting away just in time.

The only problem was that the house was frigid. Our bed was a warm little sauna between our activities and Jamie’s internal furnace. I hopped over to our wardrobe and pulled out my favorite knit sweater. It was one of those big ones that’s naturally comfortable. It left my legs open to the freezing air, but most of the rest of me was quite warm.

“God ye’ve a nice arse,” he muttered as I left the room. 

A few minutes later, I went back up the stairs with a tray of tea things and some biscuits. One can never have tea without biscuits.

Jamie was fast asleep when I went in, which made me smile. I’d wake him in a moment, when his tea was ready, but for now I could just watch him.

When we’d made Faith, I’d known the instant it had happened. I hadn’t known about Bree until Jamie told me I’d missed my period. I wondered which of us would know first with this one. My hand rested over my stomach while the tea cooled.

I set his cup down on his bedside table and slipped back under the covers, seeking warmth.

He yelped when I thrust my frozen feet between his calves.

“Why must ye always do that?!”

“I’m cold!”

“Aye! And now so am I!”

“What’s yours is mine?” I said with a smile. “But I brought you tea.”

“Good,” he muttered, sitting up and reaching for the cup. “I need to warm my body again after ye stuck me wi’ those wee icicles ye call feet.”

“I love you too, dear.”

  • I remember when my psychiatrist first recognised my eating disorder...
  • Psychiatrist: You look thin!
  • Me: *under my breath* Good
  • Psychiatrist: How's your eating going?
  • Me: Not great I guess
  • Psychiatrist: What have you eaten this week?
  • Me: A Low Fat Cuppa Soup
  • Psychiatrist: Ok...
  • Me: But I purged it. I'm not that fat. Please don't judge me for eating that!
  • The conversation carried on about how that was way too little. I couldn't for the life of me work out why she thought that was too little. I was so CONVINCED that I was fat and that I'd eaten too much, that I resulted to begging for her not to judge me.
  • That Cuppa Soup contained 84 calories and I'd only eaten half before purging it. That's all I ate that week.
  • This is what Anorexia can do to a person.
  • Anorexia is NOT beautiful.
  • Anorexia is NOT 'goals'.
  • Anorexia is NOT perfection.
  • Anorexia is a life treating illness.
  • This is why 'pro-ana' is so unbelievably disgusting.

I wonder if Jack, when he sees our reactions here, he laughs and is like ‘That theory’s wrong… That one’s kind of close… Nope… Nope… Eh.. Kinda but not really…’ And then if he sees one that’s close he’s like 'ahh fuck they’re onto me…’

Do you ever wonder what he’s like to Wiishu like 'Hey Signe, look at the fuckign nightmare I caused on social media. It’s getting to the point the Mishapocolypse did haha’ and then drinks a nice cuppa coffee and sits back watching the chaos unfold?
No?
Just me? Okay…

It’s stupid early, and I’ve been up since 2 something this morning… SO edits it is.

Are ya’ll ready for part 13 of My son, Bringer of storms? it’s called “Everyone’s on twitter. Idjit”

Monday and Wednesday there might not be updates for this series, since I Have blood tests and appointments to get to. But I’ve started part 16, so other then that, it should be posting as usual :).

Anyone want to make me another cuppa tea while I edit this?

alangel1895  asked:

What to do for a celebration... Most pply enjoy take overs (not my cuppa tea personally, but thats me). How about ships? I've seen that a lot. Or some special fic - Choose your own ending or something else you don't normally write. Ahm... maybe something else to interact with all those ppl following you? Some kind of funny Q&A or 'gimme 2 words and I write a once sentence silly fanfic'. You'll come up with something, I'm sure. Oh and congrats on the follower mile stone, you deserve it :)

Oooh yeah I like the 2 word thing!! Gonna modify it slightly though.

GUYS, VOTE!

1. Angel takeover: I invite a couple couple angels to take over this blog for a day and they’ll answer all your questions and reblog things with their own commentary.

2. Two word fics: You send me two words and a ship (can be reader insert too) and I’ll write a one paragraph fic with them!

VOTE UNTIL I REACH 800! SEND ME A NUMBER, 1 OR 2 DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU’D LIKE TO SEE :)

Tagging some ppl under the cut
