“The Golden Quiche is a Post-Pacifist mystery drama that starts off with a supposedly simple custody case with The Magus Association. This prompted Frisk to form a partnership with Sans to find out the truth behind their circumstance. As time went by, they get dragged into the complexities of SOUL magic, secrets, and history. Nothing was what it seemed, and many a broken past gets unearthed.
In the midst of this chaos, Papyrus finds his way.
TLDR version: Anime is Real. Recommended for anyone who wants a lightnovel/anime style of storytelling.
if you would be interested to have a quick read and maybe leave some feedback to the author that would be awesome :)
see, but you guys are thinking of Emma Swan, who said people should push back and say “this is who i am” and didn’t take any shit (including from fuckboys) and was generally a strong character even when gradually learning to take the emotional risk and love her family. that person wore jeans and tank tops and leather dresses. that character was awesome but they killed her off because they couldn’t figure out how to make it logical that she’d date a dude who acted like their Gary Stu.
the new character that they added for the self-insert to date is the person who wears hideous floral dresses and pink atrocities with high pony, and she is someone else entirely. she has no independent existence except for being in a relationship, she is passive and allows herself to be treated awfully, she is a caricature of the worst notions of femininity. and she dresses like that caricature.
but i can see how it’s confusing because they both have the same name.
So I’ve been on this kick of watching really bad movies, so I thought, why not try to watch some klaroline scenes? It’d been so long, and girls are still so obsessed with it, that I wanted to check it out again and see if there was an appeal there that had gone unnoticed by me. After all, it couldn’t be as bad as I remember. I was right; It was worse.
The dialogue is downright godawful. I’ve never seen a romance spell out what it is as much as klaroline. Klaus’ character is verbally pitching the idea to us at every turn, literally listing off the reasons Caroline fits the role, “you’re beautiful, you’re strong, you’re full of light” And how exactly does he know any of this? Was this during the imaginary time he spent falling in love with her that the writers didn’t bother to show for…reasons? But I’ll get to that later. The writers, when it came to klaroline, didn’t believe in subtly one bit. “So you’ve never felt the attraction that comes when someone whose capable of doing terrible things for some reason cares only about you.” Holy shit, captain obvious is writing this story! Instead of showing us this angle, the writers take the lazy way out and have Klaus tell the audience that this is what the story is, because even the writers realize they’re failing. How bad can this get?
Let’s look at all the iconic romantic scenes they have. There’s him giving her his blood–after he bit her. There’s him saving her life–after he stabbed her and bit her on the neck and watched her slowly die. There’s that cringe inducing speech about the hummingbird that only shippers thought wasn’t hilarious. Oh and there’s their sex scene which was a quick hump against a tree that lacked any kind of romance. And here’s a glaring fact that’s always bothered me: Klaroline literally has no beginning. To this day I’m sure the writers have no idea when Klaus spontaneously fell for Caroline. Most love stories have a beginning and an end, and Klaroline only has an ending.
I don’t even need to get into how gross and abusive the relationship is because the story speaks for itself, so I’ll get into the overall structure. The progression of the relationship was terrible. Nothing about it felt natural. One episode they’re screaming at each other (big shock), and then the next episode it’s like it never happened. Like the writers literally couldn’t remember where they had left off and were too lazy to go back and watch. And boy were their scenes ever repetitive. Flirt, rejection, fight, roll credits annnnd reuse. Every scene is Klaus rambling about himself and not giving a shit about what Caroline is into.
But let’s get to probably the worst part of this story: the character assassination. Caroline and Klaus were my favorite characters before their first big scene. You would think finding out your fave male and fave female were getting together would be awesome, but no, no, no. In order for Klaroline to happen, their characters had to be stripped of everything that made them worth watching. Caroline, who had finally come into her own and turned into a brave, strong woman, was now shrieking in every episode and obsessing over the men in her life (and her awesome relationship with Stefan vanished), and let’s not forget the prom dress scenario. What happened to a wounded Care telling Stefan, “I’m not girly little Caroline anymore.” And then there’s Klaus…dear God, Klaus. Remember the villain who showed up at the end of season 2, who had followers, who had Katherine running for hundreds of years? Wasn’t that fun? Instead let’s have him talk about hummingbirds, paint ponies and snowflakes, follow around a seventeen year old girl like a lost puppy dog, get outwitted by newbie vamps, and come across like a generally pathetic stalker who shows love by shoving a lamp in your gut. Now doesn’t that sound like a great character! I will say, these characters have made a recovery, but them being on separate shows had to happen in order to achieve this. Not a coincidence.
In short: Klaroline is insulting to my brain as a human being, adult, woman, and a writer. It’s the kind of storyline you expect a teenage girl to be writing in her notepad that never sees the light of day. I’m just sincerely relieved to know it’s dead.
If there is something that has become clear to me of 1X02 is how easy it has Lizzie to seduce Henry VII. Her only warm approach to Henry makes him nervous. With the simple words she whispers, the king closes his eyes and begins to want to unbutton her dress. The language of the body is just awesome. Pure Freud (it must be taken into account that I will speak in purely Freudian terms, everything is a metaphor) Lizzie is the representation of the forbidden lover, the forbidden fruit of Eden. While for Margaret Beaufort, her mother, is the perfect lover, her advice will always prevail because she is the only woman with whom she can rely, with whom she can “Sleep” quietly. But Henry is bored with his mother in the same bed. As Eve was bored with Adam, that’s why she bit the apple. For that he desires what he can not have: have the Lizzie´s body by her own will, her own choice. Henry thought that she was gonna to give herself to him, easily. Because actually that is what he wants, he wants be her lover, sharing with her the same bed and be seduced for her. He thinks she´s a witch, like her mother, Elizabeth Woodville, but he´s exactly like was Edward IV in the 1X01 of “The white Queen”, on fire with Lizzie, but the great diference between both kings is that Henry is hypocrital while Edward was not. Henry hides his desire for his wife. But he needs her, he wants her because she´s a witch, the forbiden, what he shouldn´t desire, the fatale beauty, the sex….the dark side. For that he´s attracted to her. Eve beats the apple, Henry almost kiss to Lizzie, who like her cunning future daughter-in-law Anne Boleyn knows how toy and prolong the king´s desire for her. So thanks to this reaction of Henry with the only idea that Lizzie seduces him, since it was not a real seduction ( she plays with him and his feelings), Margaret has the lost game with Lizzie, is just that she does not know that. Hidden, indeed the motto of Lizzie is working, and much patient, because she will burn Henry until in his dreams. Margaret is just right now like a dispased lover. Henry left her bed already and only is walking “slowly” until his wife´s one. There will come a time that his ears only will ear the Lizzie´s words.
Asha, Daughter of Madam Vastra (Doctor Who),

Lena Luthor Appreciation Week, Day 2: Favorite Outfit/Look
I really can’t choose just one, especially when every episode Katie McGrath decides to one-up herself and look even HOTTER but I think her entire aesthetic during Medusa was overall my favorite. Her hair was gorgeous, her dress was awesome and then of course it was appearance #1 of THE COAT, and we all know how the fandom feels about THAT. ;) Plus she broke our heart in her scene with Lillian, stood up to Supergirl, and then fucking fooled EVERYONE and saved the aliens. And she did it all rocking stilettos. When does your fave ever???

Parties weren’t your thing. Anymore, that is.
Before the walkers, you were used to going out every Friday. You owned countless party dresses, all of them beautiful.
But now you killed the dead. The party dresses left in your burned down home, fire consuming them and everything your life used to be. You hardened, becoming closer to the small group of budding survivors you called your family.
As someone who spent half of her twenties dressing like a dominatrix rockstar, then woke up one morning and thought, “…but what about ethereal disco diva couture???” and spent a few more years doing that...
Like, I can understand that some people are really bothered by Emma’s changes in wardrobe… I just can’t understand why.
First I received the Skeleton Girl kit. But it didn’t take long for me get the torso. Thankfully another member of Monster High Arena sold me a white CAM torso for a reasonable price. She matches perfectly with the torso. The skeleton cam has awesome details of the bones of her limbs. They are slightly different from Skelita. She does not have ears. Her face is perfect for a skeleton. She has the typical vertically stripped lips of Monster High skeletons. She also has a skeleton nose paint. Her eyebrows are black. She has gray and blue eye shadow. Her eyes are grayish purple and pink.
Her wig is navy blue with streaks of bright blue. The wig is not the greatest, it looks quite obviously like a wig. She has an awesome skeleton print sweatshirt dress that I just adore. Her white shoes match her body and have a spine up the back. She also has a bone hair clip. She is a great doll.
Title: Aphrodisiac Pairings: SasuSaku and NaruHina Summary: Their double date turned out worse than they could have ever imagined… or did it? Rated: M A/N: idk i felt like writing something like antidote again lol ( ͡° ᴥ ͡°) it will be divided in three parts as well, and this is the first. part 2 is here and part 3 is here.
“Do we really have to go?”
Sakura stopped applying lipgloss and looked away from her reflection in the mirror to frown at her husband. “Yes,darling, we promised we would go,” she said in an exasperated tone.
“It’s not like we are obligated to,” hemumbled as a reply, sinking lower into the bed. “We could simplysay we are not in the mood. Or we could come up with an excuse suchas ‘Sarada is not feeling well’ or-”
“Firstly, we are not liars. Secondly, we do notbreak promises. And thirdly, 'Sarada is not feeling well’ is theworst lie ever because her mother is one of the best medic ninjas in
the world, so you need to improve your lying skills.”
Sasuke let out a sigh of annoyance. He did not want
to leave his house tonight, let alone to have a double date. He
preferred to stay home with Sakura – and to take advantage of the
fact that they had already dropped their six-month-old daughter at
Ino’s. She wouldn’t be back until tomorrow morning, which meant they
had the house all for themselves for hours. Ever since
the baby was born, they’d barely had time alone.
They could not let
this opportunity pass.
After a few moments of thinking, he rose from the bed
and walked towards his wife as she continued glossing her
lips. He pressed his front against her back, tenderly stroking her
bare arms and sinking his nose into her pink hair. She was
undisturbed by his actions, perhaps already well aware of his
intentions. Still, he decided to give it a try.
“Come on, Sakura,” he said softly, moving one of
his hands to her hips and meeting her green gaze through the mirror.
“Let’s not go. The idiot won’t mind. We can have dinner with him and his
wife some other time. Tonight, I want to stay home with you, go to
bed early, hold you close against me, touch you all over and make you
Suddenly, Sakura dropped her lipgloss and turned
around to face him. Sasuke’s pulse accelerated instantly, hoping both
that his tactic had worked and that he was getting some action sooner
Eyes hazy with longing, she circled his neck with her
arms. “Oh, Sasuke-kun,” she purred, and he held her more tightly
at the mention of that endearing suffix. “You’re so… so…” She
bit her lower lip and blushed slightly. “So… crazy if
you think you will get out of this one by seducing me.”
could you share your thoughts about the ladies costumes on got? like whose costumes you liked and when, which ones you didn't etc?
Ah, sure! Be warned—naturally I have a lot of thoughts.
I think the GoT costumes are stunning. In fact, the production design has always been one of my main reasons for watching. Most designers only dream of having that kind of budget and that many talented people in the costume department (including a full-time embroiderer like Michele Carragher). So the product is bound to be pretty great. I preferred Michele Clapton as designer, and the overall concept really remains hers. Clapton left after Season 5 and was replaced by April Ferry.
As I’ve mentioned before, I believe the costumes were strongest in Seasons 1 and 2, before the budget exploded. Sure, the extra resources help secure the best fabrics and quality garment construction/detailing, but I liked a lot of the simpler (messier?) designs. i.e. what we saw with Robert’s visit to Winterfell, in the very beginning. I found the earlier hair and makeup much better too, though Cersei’s stuff was a little wild (I’ll make a few comments on wigs/makeup/styling as well, though note that these form separate departments in TV production).
