all star competition

Normani not winning that damn trophy is some next level bullshit

I said this before but imma repeat it.  THIS is what it means to be a black woman in White America. We can be as flawless and as perfect as we can possibly be but will still not get as far or be as rewarded as our white and male counterparts. We have always had to work twice as hard to get half as far. That’s not news to us, its just shit like this shoving that harsh reality back in our faces. 

 That being said I am happy that Rashad won instead of David even though white mediocrity was still rewarded higher than the efforts of not just one but two extremely talented black women but I digress.

 We have been blessed this entire season with amazing quality dances and interactions from Valmani. Seeing Normani come out of her shell and become more open, honest, and carefree has been such an honor and I know Val feels the same. I’m so grateful for Val bringing out Mani’s best and pushing her to be better, that man is so talented and together they made magic. This partnership was truly a gift.

 I will always remember that our queen still DID THAT week after week, despite numerous and painful injuries, despite long hour flights and jet lag, despite working on tour and in the studio….SHE DID THAT. Enough perfect 40s to put everyone in that room to shame, we don’t even have to say it. We know who won, those judges know who won, the audience know who won but it’s okay cuz my queen is gonna stay winning in life and imma keep supporting no matter what.

This was right as Celebration was shutting down on the last day and we were slowly inching our towards the exit



Out of the Frying Pan (16/?)

“What are you doing?” she asked, leaning forward so her back arched into his chest and Emma appreciated the way he inhaled sharply through his nose. She grabbed garlic cloves and bobbed slightly on her feet, looking for thyme and she hoped the pan she’d left on the stove before she moved towards the incredibly well-stocked pantry was actually hot by the time she got back.

“I am trying to find appropriate spices,” Killian muttered in her ear, leaning his hand over her to grab the thyme.

“Ah! I was looking for that.”

“You’ve got to move faster, love.”

AN: Happy Chopped day! Or, at least, the first two rounds of Chopped. 7K of cooking and flirting and something called dragon tongue bean’s

Living it up on Ao3 and tag’ed up on Tumblr
