and just all of the backgrounds in general

“Tale as old as time…”

My official redesign of the Beauty and the Beast 2017 ballgown. I tried to keep the general design of the new version while making it historically accurate. Think of her as a living golden rose.

there’s a joke post going around saying “ vine’s deletion > burning the library of alexandria” and like obviously the joke is all the snotty faux intellectuals in the comments whining about millenials disrespecting history or some shit but no listen, op is sort of right? old libraries only included content created by respected scholars, it’s not like any commoner could just walk in and shelve their own work next to it. whereas in the current age creating and sharing content is becoming increasingly more accessible to people of all sorts of backgrounds, meaning that the voices of people who have never been afforded a dedicated platform are finally able to be heard. Like obviously vine was just shitposts and aesthetic videos but it was also a look into the sense of humour, life, creativity and experiences of people, which is priceless as a record because it’s something you can never faithfully recreate if the original is lost. I’m freaked out by mortality in general though so sorry for rambling

Stop. Calling. Nygmobblepot. Queerbaiting!!

Do I think tragic one-sided gay love is a shitty trope of preventing a LGBT couple being canon? Yes.

As I said before, LGBT characters are often treated like shit on television; it’s either angsty one-sided love, one of them dying, or if they actually ARE in a loving relationship they are background characters with little to no screen time.

And it annoys me just as much as it annoys you. If Nygmobblepot isn’t canon at the end of the season I’m definitely writing a long (but respectful) rant. Not because “muh ship isn’t canon!!” but because I truly think this is a very important step for TV and media in general.

But even if it remains one-sided it’s still not queerbaiting. You can whine about them teasing us all you want, but the fact remains that Oswald canonly has feelings for a man. And it’s not unrealistic that it might stay one-sided. Since most of us are a part of the LGBT, I think we know very well how much it sucks when you get a crush on a straight person.

But now let’s for a second put down our pitchforks (both sides of the fandom) and look at this from a business perspective:

This show has a large comic fanboy following. Most fanboys act like 6 year olds who think girls have cooties whenever there is even a slight chance of their favourite character being anything but straight. Gotham took a big risk by making Penguin have feelings for another iconic villain.

Do you not understand that they are risking the show getting CANCELLED by doing that?! We are not a big shipping fandom and a lot of us are international fans who currently can’t participate in supporting the show legally – even though we want to very badly. All we can do is spread the word, try to get as many new viewers as possible and leave positive feedback on social media.

If Nygmobblepot becomes canon, it will probably happen in the other half of the season; once the Gotham crew has season 4 safely confirmed. In the end this is a business and a lot of jobs are at risk. I think they are trying very hard to please everyone and be inclusive while also staying on air. Especially since this is FOX; they have a bad habit of cancelling shows very quickly. I honestly didn’t expect this show to still be here for season 3.

So stop being shitty to the Gotham crew. Things would go a lot differently if they had a big budget and a lot of seasons confirmed. But they don’t and they are walking on eggshells right now since they included a pretty sensitive topic in their story.

They didn’t have to include it at all and they still did.

I’m listening the new B&tB soundtrack on spotify again and after remembering the incredible visuals I just want to put it out in the world that I love this rendition of “Be Our Guest” even more than the original animated version.

First Date

@kingdom-for-muses

Luffyko nervously threw her clothes around trying to find the right dress or at least something to wear! Nothing seemed right, and she didn’t know why she was so nervous in the first place. It was just a date right? Just a date with Yalimar, who she had flirted with for a long while but never had  went more than that. Now this would mean they would stay friends or possibly move farther into their relationship. Her cheeks burned at the thought.

Yalimar was picking her up before they would walk to the place of their first date. She had left that decision up to Yalimar. She nervously chose a red pleated skirt and white blouse. She could hear Nami snickering in the back with Robin as they watched their captain get dressed. Her cheeks turned more pink at their silent teasing. Choosing a pair of pearl earrings and necklace she put them on before putting on black flats. She went onto the deck of the ship and looked out wondering if Yalimar was there already.

She was all dolled up, or at least as pretty as she could be made. Her sunkissed skin had made it a slight challenge for Nami to put make up on her. She was tempted to just take her hand and smear it all, but she did her best not to. She had defeated great piratse and marines, escaped prison, and had escaped death so many times, and yet she felt like she was facing her biggest challenge yet.

Eternity - Benjamin x Reader

So, I finally got a request from a friend! She loves Benjamin, Rami’s character in Breaking Dawn (but you already know that, of course) and wanted something short and fluffy about him. I must say I’m not a fan of the Twilight series, but she really wanted this and I got to practice my writing, so… Win-win situation.

As I’ve mentioned before, English is not my first language, so I’d really appreciate any kind of criticism and thoughts on this in general.

Anyway, here we go.

Word count: 516


There was background music.

Or, at least, that’s what Benjamin though it was, though the man was starting to think he was simply perceiving your heartbeat as more rhythmical than it actually was.

The muffled, liquid, warm sound that marked you as a living creature flooded his mind, caressing that purely instinctive part in just the right way for the sensation to be more pleasurable than dangerous. Practically all of his acute senses were saturated with your presence: the sweet, musky scent tangled in your hair, splayed over the pillow; the softness and warmth of your skin, the intense tapping, paused and stable, of your jugular against his lips.

You’d been like that for hours now, lying on the bed in what had seemed silence only to you. You, sleeping placidly in Benjamin’s arms, his face drowned in your neck, eyes closed, believing himself capable of actual sleep, just like centuries before.

You trusted him so much—too much, even, as he sometimes thought. You were the most exquisite being he had ever laid eyes on, in his life and what came after it; and that was saying something, considering the tremendous number of years and places visited that implied. You were the best thing he had. All he had.

He had never felt so satisfied with his own existence like he did in those moments, when he could hug you close, whispering sweet nothings in your ear while your mind wandered, floating through the mists of slumber. It had come to a point where he couldn’t conceive of what would become of him if you weren’t within his hand’s reach, if he were robbed of those hours of peace and quiet, of the constant solace of your company.

You were the only sun that had ever warmed him, the only water that had ever quenched his thirst; his heart, cold and motionless for so long, beat now under the chest of the young woman beside him.

Benjamin pulled away from the curve of your neck to press his lips against the corner of your barely opened mouth. You stirred lightly in your sleep, turning your head towards him, but didn’t open your eyes. Benjamin kissed your eyebrow, your cheekbone, soft, cold touches that felt like bits of a gentle winter morning breeze. He took one of your hands and slowly lifted it up to his lips, still finding himself amazed by your body temperature, so much higher than his own. He felt the quiet hum of the veins running through the back of your hand, barely visible.

He kissed you knuckles, the inner side of your wrist, deliberately, with dedication, almost reverence, and watched with utmost delight as your lips curved into the most beautiful of smiles. With your eyelashes still barely brushing your cheeks, you breathed his name, followed by a soft, sleepy murmur. Benjamin’s ruby eyes glistened with the ghost of the smile tugging at his lips.

Each day now, he was more and more unsure whether he’d be able to settle for something less than eternity. 

But he wouldn’t tell you that.

little things I love about the fma fandom:

  • fan art for EVERYONE even though the cast is fucking massive. You want are of Catherine Armstrong? You bet! Frank Archer, who was literally invented solely for the purpose of being a twat 03? Tons! The dude from the background in Briggs with cool hair? You bet your ass Briggs Cool Hair Guy has art.
  • stupid short jokes we’re allowed to make since we’re all taller than our protagonist
  • “tiny miniskirts” could easily be the worst Annoying Fandom Catchphrase ever (and I’ll admit it probably was in the years following fma03) but these days I just see it used as an excuse to draw Roy Mustang in revealing clothing and who doesn’t love that?
  • those three weeks or so where there were flower crown edits everywhere, that was a good time
  • the general consensus that the correct term for Greed and Ling’s relationship is “roommates
    • the numerous AUs that accordingly write them as actual roommates
  • just the general fact that we’re still a thing?? like how the heck have we held so strong, by fandom standards we are elderly but we’re still kicking!
  • Olivier Mira Armstrong could beat up pretty much anyone in the fandom and we all know we’d thank her
    • but then there’s also a few people who are Extra in love with her, usually also along with the rest of Briggs. Bless them
  • here come the kimble
  • seriously, bless badlydrawnanime
  • royai shippers just fucking revelling in having the best dang straight ship anyone could dream of
  • still SO bitter about characters’ deaths (some of which happened more than a decade ago if you measure by the manga’s publication!) and probably more hypersensitive to jokes about them than any other fandom I’ve been in, yet also way, way more likely to make those infuriating jokes. We straight-up can’t help ourselves.
    • like I literally own a shirt that makes an “arm and a leg” joke it’s the most infuriating item of clothing I own any I love it
    • we basically wrote the book on Dead Anime Mom jokes, get on our level aaron jägerbomb
    • maes hughes. full stop.
  • the truest unifying constant through the years of our incredible, indelible loathing for Shou Tucker
  • Greed fans in general. Just… why are we like this. Help.
  • pretty chill as fandoms go? Not a whole lot of drama? thank god??
    • and as far as I’ve seen no drama specifically between 03 fans and manga/brohood fans like OH MY GOD can you imagine how annoying we’d be if that was a thing?
  • jaclcfrost posts
  • sassy alphonse
  • snap snap spark spark

I hate how… On Westworld… They had some gay stuff in the background in the early episodes, and that was completely phased out once the general plot kicked off, and there were het subplots to set up. Like, that totally felt like they were just rubbing it in like, “We totally have the power to have gay shit on this show since it’s HBO and we can do what we want, but no way are we making it a focus, giving you gay protagonists with relationships like these straight characters have. All you get is scraps.”

president-frankenstein  asked:

Say you had COMPLETE CONTROL of how actual Karabita would play out in the show. How would you do it?

HMMM

honestly as much as I think the characters are GREAT together, I don’t think ososan is really the show to explore that as much as 80s osokun was. Like ososan’s Serious eps don’t fit in its wacky hijinks M.O. as much as the serious eps in osokun did, just bc one of those had this constant backdrop of “chibita and iyami are suffering” so there was an actual serious element kinda understood through all the show.

THAT BEING SAID… I think a developed friendship or background relationship could work? the first probly moreso than the second. like more chibit and kara hanging out, more of them seeking each other out for help or companionship (like Chibita and Oden, ep 24, the light novel story).  and through those interactions we’d get more of them getting comfortable with and mimicking each other’s brands of Outlandish. like (in general) pLEASE more attention-thirsty and dramatic chibita that responds to the slightest praise with “DAMN RIGHT! You sure got good taste, now… go on.. .”

For an Obviously Karabita route, not only would they get more associated with each other like. skit-wise and “we have to have karamatsu doing something neutral to start the scene, let’s just put him with chibita!”, but there’d be like. more intimate contact. not so much kissing and stuff but like. Good Ol Leaning, hand holding , holding chibita back from a fight, holding karamatsu back from something stupid, encouraging back pats (less slap, chibita…), sitting close, Looks.  stuff that’s like pretty obviously couple-y but at most borderline pda.  

Like personally I don’t think the show would benefit from any front-and-center long term romance (as opposed to Jyushimatsu falls in love and Chibita’s flower, which were meant as tearjerker, character development/explorative episodes).  BUT I think something more bg would fit in and not detract from Everyone Is Terrible and They All Do Funny, But Terrible Things: The Show. so maybe there’d be a kiss for a victorious or chaotic moment, but otherwise I think it’d b good to mostly show a relationship through throwaway lines and targeted attention from the characters to each other and More Than Friends contact.

Also Chibita Becomes a Mother but he keeps the baby and karamatsu helps

Just a general FWI about Jewish Tradition- based as a response to things I’ve seen online and outside tumblr in the past few weeks. (Note: My cultural background is with conservative and reform synagogues only. All of this may not hold for more orthodox practices.)

If you are visiting a synagogue and you are not Jewish, do not wear a Talit. It’s religious garb that has holy connotations, and it’s not something to violate because you think it’s a ‘pretty scarf’ or you’re 'just respecting the culture’. Even Jews do not earn the right to wear one until they have become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. To do so otherwise… It’s mildly sacrilegious.

However, please feel free to don a kippah (yarmulke, skull cap, whichever vernacular you choose to use is fine), regardless of your religion. You are in no way told to do this, but with this it is a sign of respect, and for those that are more spiritual, a sign of separating yourself from God (whatever your interpretation of that may be). It has no specific 'rite’ of passage to wear these. (However, if you’re unsure, ask one of us. We like questions.)

Just keep these in mind next time you visit a synagogue.

the existence of sbahj as a side comic to homestuck just adds so much to it in terms of back story and context. not just comedy value when its referenced, but the way its referenced and how in turn it references the main comic really provides a nice background to the beta kids friendships. 

the fact that they all reference their friends comic and have these really consistent affectionate in-jokes is so cute, because it really gives a sense of conversations that happened before we met them and conversations we havent seen, and just a previous friendship in general, not just involving dave. john and rose make reference to it in one conversation together that i remember. its also really satisfying to read some sbahj and notice a reference to a certain point in the comic when dave obviously experienced something, like coming into contact with the phrase ‘schoolfed up the bonebulge’ in a convo with the trolls, and thought, in the midst of playing sburb, like hey, i must incorporate this into a comic. also theres one sbahj comic where the phrase ‘you can see me right, what is wrong with this picture’ is used, and i love that because it either means that john was referencing sbahj AGAIN when he says that, or, even better imo, that either john or rose recounted that legendary convo to dave and so its usage is actually a reference to john. idk it just is funny and gr8 and while its unbelievably silly it adds some interesting info about relationships and the chronology of things

anonymous asked:

What's your favourite grumps series? I really liked super mario galaxy.

I’m not gonna lie, I looooooooooove LoZ II, just because it’s fun as a background and it’s dan playing so you get better and less confused gameplay

I also have a huge soft spot for Mario Sunshine for some reason and I have no clue why. I think it’s the water. And the general look of the game, it’s goooorgeous

oh also!! all katamari series (esp We <3 Katamari), because even though sometimes they (ahem Arin ahem) completely suck ass at it, it’s really satisfying for me when they finally succeed at it, and roll up EVERYTHINNNNGGGGG~~ It might be a low-key st/im thing lmao

oh and also that time Jon and Arin spent like three episodes of Nintendo Land trying to beat that fucking Donkey Kong level. I fucking love those three episodes SO MUCH!! 

there’s definitely more i’m forgetting but those are coming up off the top of my head at the moment :D

anonymous asked:

Could you please write something about the progress of andrew and neil's relationship after the king's men? like in the small things, touching, time spent together etc.

people have been telling me things when i wrote out ‘guidelines for loving andrew minyard’ (tumblr, ao3), so this is sort of something like that. poetic prose, all that jazz. i’m pathetic, let me be!!!! p.s. there’s a tfc reference down there so this is not just post-tkm, but rather, the relationship’s progression in general— yeah, i need to stop explaining myself

(neil’s pov, second person, + title’s taken from this song by passenger!)
