and i can watch it tonight

If you ever wanted a complete definition, explanation of how racist beliefs transmute to action, then just watch the 2017 Oscars. Such good wins… Viola Davis and Mahershala Ali, Moonlight. So many people making comments about the political situation, ok fine. But, as a brown person watching the Oscars tonight, I got hives from the secondhand embarrassment. Some of the things that were done were in such bad taste. Who thought it was a good idea to have Sunny Pawar act out the Lion King? WTF? And the tour bus full of mostly brown and black people walking into the Oscars just as everyone shouts out Mahershala Ali’s name?? Why? Also, Moonlight won. Did the Moonlight winners speak? I can’t find clips of any Moonlight directors, producers speaking. Only the La La Land people spoke for best picture. The win didn’t feel clean. Couldn’t they just have had Moonlight up there? It was almost like the nominators were like “ Well, we can’t have La La Land up there, but we know that they deserve to win, so lets do it this way, give them a chance to speak, have everyone applaud and then turn it around so we can have the La La Land director SHARE their award with Moonlight.” WTH?? No, not share, it belongs to Moonlight. I mean how do you try and still get it so so wrong? It feels like they are saying, “ We will give you this award but we don’t think you are human. We just feel angry, guilty, and envious that our pets are doing so well!” Maybe I shouldn’t be so angry and negative about the Oscars. After all some of those wins were about damn time! But those shenanigans just stick in my craw.

Note to pop culture / movie fans

Normally I’d be posting Oscars-related items tonight but I’m working on a project so I’m watching but can’t post.

I’ll share any feminist / gender equality / racial equality related posts tomorrow, stay tuned!

cole and lili are hanging out tonight watching the oscars with debby ryan and friends. you can hear cole's voice in the background of the video mad_hill just posted on twitter. for some reason i think they were trying to hide the fact that cole was there in their first instagram story posts. hmmm...

I just saw this! How cute is it that they already share friends? But yeah, I think the two of them have to be careful when it comes to showing how much time they spend together, even if they are just friends. Apparently producers don’t like it when a couple on a show are close in real life because they like to have it according to the progression of the show!

Me after watching tonight's episode:

I love Eugene and his idea is genius (to mix himself up with the Saviors and be the inside man to help TF). [SHIT CAN HIT THE FAN VERY EASILY THO] I think the plot line is about to get even more intense. [WHICH I CANT FUCKING WAIT FOR.] I miss Carol. I miss Daryl. I CANT FUCKING WAIT FOR RICHONNE. Overall, great episode 10/10.

Taken But Wanted

Request: Margot is Rick’s girlfriend but Negan decides he wants her.

Thank you so much for @borntobeafamousmonster for requesting this. I am super, super sorry it took so long. I hope you all like it.

P.S: And can I just say tonight’s episode of TWD was amazing! It gave me so many ideas for the next chapter of Always Mine!


Rick’s eyes widened as The Saviors pulled more of their people out of the back of the truck. He watched as Michonne was pulled out along with Rosita, Glenn, Daryl and…


“Margot.” He whispered as he watched Dwight pull his girlfriend out of the truck and push her to the ground right in between Glenn and Daryl. She immediately started looking around, her eyes locking onto Rick’s. He could see her shaking as she looked at him. He silently asked her if she was okay, getting a shaky nod in return.


“I’m okay,” she mouthed. Rick gave her a once over before turning back and glaring at Simon was standing in front of all of them.


“Alright! We got a full boat. Let’s meet the man.”

Low Life

This is based on @foleypdx and her music tastes. HERE is a link to the song. There was no beta for this, so, eh. 

You can also read this on AO3


She holds the whiskey in her hand, a bottle of the best. The roof of her suite has a gazebo and it’s her choice location for watching the world burn. Tonight, she celebrates the loss of the last of her family, ‘the jailing of a monster’ as the press calls it.

The bass of the song plays in nicely with the throbbing in her head.

“I’m nothing but a low life.”

Jin overreacts when he finds out you're a Vegetarian.

-Jin overreacts to finding out you’re a vegetarian, Requested by a lovely Anon!
(I didn’t really know how this was gonna go, so I hope it’s okay!)

———————————
Yoongi had just shown up at your apartment door, he was bent in half whilst panting. ‘You know Y/N you should really move onto a lower floor…’ He managed to say. 'You should’ve took the elevator you dumb ass!’ You laughed. 'Anyway what can I do for you?’ You asked watching him straighten himself out, that’s when you noticed he was more dressed up than usual.

'Surprise party for Jin tonight. We’ve been planning it for weeks and we’re the dumbest guys ever because we didn’t realise we hadn’t invited you until just now, so I raced over to get you!’ You let out a laugh at your friends’ mishap. 'Wow you forgot to invite his own girlfriend to his party?’ Yoongi rolled his eyes and pushed his way into your apartment. 'Chop chop no time for chit chat go put a dress on or something! Hobi will be bringing Jin to the restaurant in an hour hurry!’ 'The restaurant? Yoongi I…’ 'No time Y/N! Go get dressed!’ He said pushing you in the direction of your bedroom.

You closed the door and began rifling through your wardrobe. You quickly changed into a simple black dress and heels and quickly touched up your makeup. You were panicking internally because you did not at all want to go to a restaurant but you couldn’t not go to Jin’s graduation party. 'Get a grip Y/N everywhere has vegetarian food!’ You mumbled to yourself before going back to join Yoongi.

'You see we got so wrapped up in planning this whole thing, we just kind of assumed you’d be there, but then Namjoon realised nobody had actually told you… so I just had to rush over and get you myself!’ Yoongi said in the car, he continued on to tell you that Hobi had told Jin they were going out just the two of them for drinks and that was how they planned to surprise him.

You followed Yoongi into the restaurant to see a huge long table lined with Jin’s friends family and the rest of BTS. The table was decorated with celebratory balloons and flowers.

'I can’t believe you forgot about me!’ You huffed to Taehyung who was first to greet you. 'Ahhh Y/N we’re sorry!’ He apologised, 'I’m only joking Tae! I can’t wait to see his face…’ Tae then pulled the empty seat out beside him, 'here, You can sit here so you’ll be next to me and Jin,’ You sat down and watched everyone chattering excitedly.

Yoongi then sat himself down opposite you on the table and placed a glass of wine down in front of you. 'Hobi just text me and said they’re just around the corner.’ He announced to the table, and just like that a few minutes later In walked Hobi closely followed by a clueless Jin.

'Congratulations!’ You all called as your heavily populated table came into view. Jungkook and Taehyung even took it upon themselves to let off a few party poppers. 'Wow he really had no clue at all!’ Taehyung said from beside you. 'I know he looks so shocked!’ You replied watching him go around the table greeting everyone.

Finally, Jin got to your end of the table and sat down at the head of it. 'I can’t believe you all did this for me! I told you no fuss!’ Jimin turned in his seat to face Jin and raised his glass, 'Congratulations Mamma Jin!’ He yelled making the table laugh.

Jin rocked back in his chair and picked up the menu in front of him. 'Ahh I can’t wait to eat!’ He said excitedly. You almost choked on your drink remembering that you were in a restaurant. Yoongi raised an eyebrow at you over the table.

'Ah Jin! Come down here and take some photographs!’ Someone called, Jin got up and happily obliged. Jin himself noticed you rejecting almost all of his offers for you to join him and the boys for dinner since you began dating 3 months ago. The boys had also noticed your excuses not to join them for meals, even when they were celebrating.

You looked back to Yoongi to see his eyebrow still raised at you. 'What don’t you eat?’ He said. 'No I just…’ 'Don’t like eating in public? Is that it?’ He asked placing his menu down on the table and leaning forward. 'Don’t think we haven’t noticed that in 3 months you’ve never once joined us for a meal…’ Yoongi wasn’t being rude to you, he was just genuinely curious.

'No… I just, don’t like eating out.’ You responded taking another sip of your drink. 'Why? Who doesn’t like eating out?’ 'Yoongi I’m a vegetarian! And nowhere you guys go ever serves vegetarian food so I just don’t come so I don’t ruin it…’ Yoongi leaned back in his seat and slowly nodded his head. 'Interesting…’ You gave him a weird look across the table. 'I never thought Jin would date a vegetarian!’ 'Jin doesn’t know…’ You replied.

'You’re a vegetarian and Jin doesn’t know?!’ You heard Taehyung gasp from beside you. You rolled your eyes at his input. 'It’s not a secret I just don’t want him to feel like he has to go to vegetarian places because of me… I’d ruin it if I came out for meals with you all!’ You stated matter of factly.

'And how exactly would you ruin it?’ Jin asked sitting back down beside you, he has just caught the last part of your conversation. Yoongi again leaned back in his chair and gestured for you to speak. 'Because I’m a vegetarian and I…’ 'Wait what?! You’re a vegetarian? Oh my god we’re so horrible for eating meat in front of you!’ Jin claimed, completely over reacting.

You pulled a face at Yoongi over the table. 'See I told you, he’s completely over reacting!’ Yoongi simply chuckled in response. 'Yep…’ Jin really looked traumatised by your revelation. 'I feel so guilty!’ You placed your hand on his arm in reassurance. 'Jin you’re being a drama queen! It’s fine honestly I don’t care what anyone else does that’s not my business, I just personally choose not to eat meat, there’s no real reason other than I just don’t like the taste!’

Jin’s eyes darted between yours and Yoongi’s. 'So you don’t think I’m a horrible boyfriend? Wait I am a horrible boyfriend it’s been 3 months and I didn’t even notice!’ You let out a laugh as his over reaction. 'Oh Jin stop being silly! I haven’t really gave you a chance to find out,’

Just then another party popper, set off by Taehyung next to you, snapped you out of your conversation. 'Anyway tonight isn’t about me it’s about you, so shut up and enjoy your night!’ You said raising your glass. Yoongi nodded his head and did the same but instead standing up.

'I just want to say, to the guys, I’m so glad we managed to pull this off, even if we did forget to invite Y/N until tonight… and thank you to everyone for coming. And to Jin… We’re all so proud of you!’ The sound of clinking glasses then filled the room as a smile spread across Jin’s face.

Twister

Imagine your otp playing Twister and getting kind of touchy-feely.

“You’ve got to be kidding,” Jenna said with a laugh as Val came around the corner with a wide smile on his face.

“You said I got to pick what we do tonight.” He held up the box proudly.

“I did,” Jenna said reluctantly, wrinkling her nose. “But Twister? Really?”

Val nodded, looking excited. “Trust me. I know what I’m doing. This will be fun.”

“But how are we going to play?” she asked when Val took out the mat and set it out on the floor. “There’s only two of us and someone needs to spin.”

“I’ll do it,” Val announced. “I can multi-task. You did say it was my turn to pick.”

Jenna watched him for just a moment, but she knew she couldn’t say no to him. “Fine,” she said with an overdramatic sigh. “But don’t cry when you lose. Spin it, then.”

“Left foot green,” Val called out.

Jenna stepped on the mat, putting her foot on the green spot at the far end of the mat, sticking her tongue out at Val playfully. He stepped on the green spot furthest away from her, but then he took two large steps forward until he reached her.

“Personal space, much?” Jenna said with a small laugh. “What’s wrong with all the other green spots?”

“I like this one,” Val told her quietly, his lips suddenly inches from her own.

“Alright,” she whispered back, barely controlling her sudden surge of excitement. Maybe this was a good idea after all. “Spin it again.

“Right hand yellow.”

They both crouched down to reach for the yellow spots. As they did this, Val leaned in and kissed her quickly. Jenna responded at once, falling into him and causing them both to topple over. Val landed on his back and Jenna was sprawled on top of him. Neither of them seemed to care.

“Told you I knew what I was doing,” Val breathed against her lips, his hands sliding to her back and reaching for the warm skin under her shirt.

“Shut up and kiss me.”

Hello, Are you continuing the kabby babyfic anytime soon?!! I'm actually obsessed with it, it's an issue. Do we get to see Clarke, Raven, and the rest of the kids' reactions?! Will Marcus get to deal with super hormonal 3rd trimester Abby?! I'm sorry, I just love this fic so much

AAAAAAAAHHHHH THANK YOU SO MUCH! I PROMISE I’LL HAVE AN UPDATE FOR YOU SOON! I didn’t get anything written this weekend on it because I poured all my energy into a super angsty oneshot (and I’ll be posting it tonight, grab kleenex, friends) but I should have another update for you at some point this week. 

I can’t watch the Oscars and I’m super bitter about it, so I might even have time to start writing some more tonight. Y’know. Because I can’t watch the Oscars.

Miranda opened the performance with a quick spoken-word intro before Cravalho finished it solo. You can watch it above. Moana was a classic Disney coming-of-age tale, but it was praised by critics for itsimpressive execution. And that included the music. Moana received one nomination tonight, for Best Animated Feature. Read more
