Loretta Young is an interesting example of one of the ways in which the popular and lively stars of the Pre-Code Era adapted to the strict enforcement of the Hays Code. Like Norma Shearer, she shed her earlier image as a free soul, an independent woman making her way in the world, to become instead a great lady of the cinema, playing historical figures or aristocrats. Shearer ruled MGM until 1940 and Loretta Young became a similar presence for Twentieth Century-Fox.
Other stars like Barbara Stanwyck and Joan Crawford continued with the same gritty portrayals of woman fighting off marauding men and striving for dignity and self-respect, but they adjusted their portrayals to fit the moral strictures of the Code. Comedy stars - Miriam Hopkins, Carole Lombard, Jean Harlow - seemed to have an easier time of it. The jokes and situations were cleaned up while the actors could maintain the same personas that had made them famous.

((A/N: Written as a submission for the lovely and amazing @kazchester-fanfiction‘s writing challenge. I stole House of the Rising Sun by The Animals. It’s a glorious song, and I decided to take it to a bit of an angsty place for this. I’d love to write more, depending on reception, actually. I enjoyed the shit out of the premise. Lyrics are italicized, and some adjusted slightly to fit the story.

How long had you known the Winchesters now? Three years? Four years? Honestly it seemed like forever some days. The boys didn’t know much about your past, but they had never needed to. It was an unspoken rule, not to pry into a Hunter’s history without them asking first. You knew about the boys purely by virtue of who they were. It was hard not to know who Sam and Dean Winchester were, or even the Angel Castiel who traipsed around with them.
I’m posting this for all you lovely non binary peeps and MTF’s who could use some fashion advice for finding clothes that fit their body type. Remember these can all be adjusted to fit you and I will try and provide better information soon.
January 23 - Pink Floyd’s tenth studio album Animals was released on this day in 1977.
Two of the album’s three epic-length songs, “Dogs” and “Sheep”, were originally written and performed live (along with the also-epic “Shine On You Crazy Diamond”) during Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon tours in 1974, but unlike “Shine On” they were shelved instead of included on the next album Wish You Were Here. “Dogs” was originally titled “You Gotta Be Crazy”, and “Sheep” was originally titled “Raving and Drooling”, both undergoing some adjustments to fit the Animal Farm inspired theme of the album.
Animals is the first and only Pink Floyd album to be recorded in their new Britannia Row studio in Islington, London. They had intended to record the following album The Wall there but it was recorded in France and the U.S. instead because the band had to spend a year out of England as tax exiles. (The studio found use by numerous other bands, in particular ‘80s goth bands Joy Division, New Order, and The Cult.) Over the years, one by one, each member of Pink Floyd sold their quarter share of Britannia Row to the others, the first being Rick Wright after he was forced out of the band during The Wall sessions, then Roger Waters after he famously quit the band in 1985, and finally David Gilmour sold to Nick Mason leaving him as the sole owner of the recording studio. In the early 1990s, Nick Mason sold Britannia Row to its longtime manager, Kate Koumi.
okay friends get ready because I am about to place latinx tango/whiskey and the entire samwell men’s hockey team into a truly horrific (read:hilarious) situation that I myself had to suffer through
• so it’s after a game and the whole team is on the roadie back home
• Jack and Mr. Crappy are there too bc why not
• Tango and Whiskey convince the team to go to an upscale Mexican restaurant in the same shopping center as their scheduled stop after having to veto Taco Bell for approximately the thousandth time
- Chowder: I don’t understand why you guys dislike Taco Bell so much
- Tango: how do we explain this to him???
- Whiskey: Taco Bell is to Mexican food as Panda Express is to Chinese food
- Chowder: ahhhh okay
• They sit down at the restaurant
• Jack stares at the guacamole before saying very quietly: I’ve actually never tried guacamole before
- There are gasps and whispers of betrayal
- Tango looks up at the ceiling and mouths “why”
- Bitty: *only to Jack* we’re breaking up
- Jack: Bits, it just doesn’t go with chicken tenders
• Chowder takes one look at the menu and bursts into tears
- Sobbing: I…I HAVE SOMETHING BAD TO CONFESS… I’VE NEVER HAD A TACO BEFORE
- Whiskey: how is that even possible we’re both from California there’s every type of food everywhere
- Lardo: lay off him. It’s not like you’ve eaten pho, have you?
- Whiskey: Y E S
• Tango and Whiskey order tamales for everyone
• The tamales are delivered. No one touches them. No one moves.
- Tango, oblivious to the stillness, goes to unwrap the corn husk. Whiskey stops him with a simple touch and a “Wait.”
- After a good five minutes of no one moving, Holster eventually picks up his tamale and bites in like a sandwich, husk and all.
• instant chaos
- Tango: WHY WHYWHYWHYWHYYYYYYYYY
- Whiskey: Tony I really think we should bounce on these people
• Five minutes later
- Bitty: my goodness! That sure was spicy! What was that called again?
- Tango: …….horchata
- Bitty: I don’t think even Señor Bun could handle that amount of spice!
• Tango to Whiskey: could you even imagine if we brought them to that place with the really good empanadas?
- Ransom overhearing: HEY I TOOK SPANISH I KNOW WHAT EMPANADAS MEANS IT’S TORTILLA IN SPANISH
- Holster: NO BRO IT’S QUESADILLA IN SPANISH
- Whiskey: Tony I meant what I said before. They deserve to be left to their own devices.
• they end up at Taco Bell anyways
• when they load the bus back up Tango and Whiskey expect to go to sleep and then wake up from this fever dream
- but no it was real
- it was all real
• anyways the next day is Sunday so they go to church and then have a nice date at the place with the really good empanadas afterwards
• later on they go to the lax house and hang out with all the lax bros and their bfs on the soccer team
• in conclusion Tango and Whiskey continue to be the dream team. you cannot beat them. only join them.
So here we are… The final part. Can I take a sec to tell y’all just how happy you guys make me? Because you do! You’re honestly the BEST! THANK YOU!
Also, if you liked even one word of this series, y’all have @sdavid09 to thank to. I wouldn’t have attempted an AU to begin with if it hadn’t been for her challenge. She actually adjusted the Challenge to fit a Business AU, because I didn’t know how to do the others. I was late to the party, and all the songs that I knew were already taken. She was the one who picked that song prompt too. What more, she has listened to me rant over and over about the series and fabulously beta’d all the chapters.
Shanna, I could’t be more grateful. I love you, You are awesome :*
I read Patrik the Vampire twice yesterday, because he's just so precious. But one thing I love about your art were the backgrounds and colors. How do you choose your palettes?
Awwww thank you <3 <3 <3
Ummm, I’m actually terrible at planning color scripts and stuff for scenes. It’s usually me slapping colors I like on things, tweaking them with overlays until I think things look good. Maybe I’ll make sure there’s an important item so I make sure it stands out (usually bright red blood). I do try to think of the mood I want a scene and adjust the colors to fit it (silly, happy scene=more yellow; serious, sad= more blue).
It’s pretty obvious I lean towards “vintage tones”, love me those yellows, oranges, and greens. One thing I do to expand my swatch library is take images with colors I like and simplifying them using the mosaic filter. Get some really nice colors and palettes this way.
