I definitely have a strong sense of my Jewish and Israeli identity. I did my two-year military service; I was brought up in a very Jewish, Israeli family environment, so of course my heritage is very important to me.
WE DID IT GUYS !!! 💛
we reached 10k, and then some! Let’s keep it going! ♡ I wasn’t able to include two of the photos they posted, but you can find them all in high quality on their Facebook page! (And some on their insta!)
These are literally the best things ever, I’ve never been so happy :’) let’s keep it going y’all! 🎉
Thank you Cole Sprouse for blessing us with these BTS shots of the Riverdale cast! His descent on the Riverdale subreddit has brought about so much goodness hehe…Here’s a collection of the shots with Lili and Cole from his photography collection ~ Gorgeous photos and the cast looks so young in those pilot episode <3
The biggest challenge for me as an actress has been dealing with the kinds of roles I was going out for as an Asian woman. For a long time I would go out for very minor or stereotypical roles. It wasn’t until recently that I’ve been able to play, not only a three-dimensional character, but also someone who is strong and powerful.
D23 Live Panel Recap (to the best of my abilities, but I kind of died and went to heaven, so...)
Spoilers, kind of?
A Wrinkle in Time -Ava DuVernay saying she wanted the cast to reflect the real world -gorgeous makeup and costumes for Mindy, Oprah and Reese -Meg being told she has to be a warrior in the teaser -we all got free posters and Oprah shouted “You get a poster, you get a poster, you all get a poster!” -CHRIS PINEEEEEE (and Disney openly and willingly congratulating him on Wonder Woman) also he was adorable with Storm
Mary Poppins -Lin is adorable in the trailer and it just feels so magical and it’s gonna be great -also Dick van Dyke and Angela Lansbury are in it
Aladdin -they announced casting and they cast Middle Eastern actors thankfully (correction: the actress who plays Jasmine is actually Indian, sorry for the mistake)
Mulan -it is coming. that is all
The Lion King -they played footage of The Circle of Life and I almost cried
Star Wars -Rian geeking out -DAISY AND JOHN, SO CUTE -KELLY MARIE TRAN, YO -MARK HAMILL walking out and everyone goes wild, and he’s like ‘Who, me? Nah…’ -Mark pointing to his eye, drawing a big heart, and then pointing at the entire crowd -behind the scenes footage -and I miss Carrie so much
Marvel -Kevin Feige and the fact that it’s been almost 10 years of Marvel! -bringing out almost the entire cast of Infinity Wars (except not Evans, but I can deal) -like, they brought out Josh Brolin first and then they brought out a round of Avengers actors, and then they were like we need reinforcements -and they were like how about some Guardians -and then they Josh was like I’m still feeling pretty cocky -and Kevin Feige was like, we have a Hulk (cue Ruffalo) -and then they’re like didn’t you bring a friend from work? (cue Hemsworth) -and Feige was like it would be so cool if Spider-Man swung by (cue Tom) -MACKIE AND CHADWICK AND ELIZABETH AND BENEDICT AND RDJ -BUT SEBBBBBBB (with his amazing beard) -and then and then and then RDJ is like where is the footage? -so they did this gorgeous recap of MCU up till now -and it ends with the exchange between Tony and Cap on a black screen (“How do we cope?” “Together.” “We’ll lose.” “We’ll do that together too.” (chills)) -CUE INFINITY WARS TRAILER -there’s literally so much awesomeness I can’t even begin to share it but seriously chills -The Guardians picking up Thor in outer space -Doctor Strange conjuring his force portal stepping stone things and Star Lord jumping from stone to stone -Nat’s blonde!?!?! -Bucky and T’Challa leading a Wakandan army!?!? -and this is the part where I died -because somebody throws something (maybe a spear? I’m not perfect, I couldn’t see 100%) -and then a figure in the shadow catches it -GUESS WHO GUYS -that’s right -it’s STEEEEVE -and the most important takeaway -CAP. HAS. A. BEARD. -I REPEAT. CAP HAS A BEARD. -NOT A FULL GROWN EVANS BEARD. But enough. -I probably missed stuff -but I was a little overwhelmed
I got to the convention center last night at 10 pm (panel started at 10:30 am). I slept on the concrete floor in line (inside, thankfully). It. Was. All. Worth. It.
You needed somebody to play the Prince that could be King. And it had to be a hero with humor, a man of the people and very handsome. Richard checks all boxes, and he also happens to be a spectacularly good actor.
•He has these big gorgeous eyebrows that are always on point and when he smirks one of them cocks up and Annabeth is inwardly like oh my gods seriously stop being so hot
•He has a deep tan, even darker than Annabeth’s
•His chest is the most prominent, muscular thing about him
•His hair is so black that whenever there are lights directly above him, his hair casts a glare
•His hair is wavy, and falls in his eyes if not properly trimmed. It is also soft as silk
•He has a very faint dusting of freckles over his nose that most people can’t see unless they’re standing close to him
•When he blushes, his cheeks turn bright, beet red and it spreads into his neck when he’s REALLY embarrassed
•Girls often think he wears cologne because his sea scent is so strong and pleasant
•His eyes get crinkly when he grins
•His eyelashes are so dark it almost looks like he wears eyeliner in certain lightings
•When he makes an angry face, his bottom lip juts out slightly (Annabeth thinks it’s cute but would never tell him that)
•Large hands with sun freckles, sun freckles going up and down his arms
•He eats sooo much and everyone wonders where it all goes
•He’s an emotional eater
•He always and only showers in the morning. The water energizes him so if he showers before bed he can’t get to sleep. If he showers in the morning, however, he is instantly groggy-free and ready to take on the day.
•He loves to cuddle
•He loves to nuzzle his face under Annabeth’s chin and in her collarbone when they cuddle
•He once tried having a staring contest with the giant statue of Zeus in Jason’s cabin to which Jason was like “dude stop that’s creepy ”
•He begged Chiron for a skateboard ramp within the camps borders to which Chiron politely declined
•He holds the record for falling the most while climbing to the top of the lava climbing wall at CHB
•He gave Jason a stapler for his birthday
•He loves cats but for some reason would never admit it but always cuddles with Annabeth’s cat when they visit her father’s house
•He once talked a shark out of attacking a group of mortals
•Has gone through 36 pairs of Converse
•His car still has Blackjack’s hoof prints
•He loves to cook. He has a blue “kiss the chef” apron with matching nemo oven mitts
•He’s terrible at cooking even though he loves it. “I’m not a bad cook mom, you KNOW I can make a mean pizza!” *takes frozen pizza from freezer and puts in oven*
•Even though Jason and the rest of the Argo II guys are really good friends of his, nobody ever took the place of Grover. Grover is still his best friend.
•The first thing Percy did after the war with Gaea (besides seeing his mom) was taking Grover out for enchiladas
•Video game wars with the guys are the best. Sometimes the girls play with them though and put the guys to shame; Percy frequently has these intense battles with Piper.
•After Nico admitted his crush on Percy, they actually became really good friends. “Dude I’m sorry you had to put up with this for so long” is what Percy frequently says instead of complaining that Percy is not Nico’s type.
•In fact, they become such good friends that Will often comes to Percy for advice about Nico
•Piper and Percy are great friends, and Piper never minds if Percy comes along when her and Annabeth are hanging out.
•When Annabeth is studying super hard and is stressed, Percy invites Piper over cause the two of them together help Annabeth relax and have fun once in a while.
•Percy went missing for a day. Annabeth flipped out because she thought it was Hera’s doing all over again, but she found him the next day passed out in the middle of the strawberry fields. Percy offered no explanation.
•Tyson sometimes surprise visits Percy at camp, and the two are always attached at the hip till Tyson has to leave.
•The Stoll brothers once pranked Percy by putting blue highlights in his hair while he slept. Percy ended up LOVING IT. “Thank you so much, guys!!” *crushes Stoll brothers in group hug*
•Percy always Iris Messages his friends at Camp Jupiter. Whether it’s Hazel, Reyna, or Frank, he always knows what’s up.
•Percy loves playing with Annabeth’s hair. She often has to swat his hands away when they are in the middle of something serious
•He has a slight, almost indecipherable New York accent, which usually becomes more prominent when he yells.
•His eyes are so bright green, it is the most prominent thing about him and one can usually see his eyes even when it’s dark.
•Hazel made him a blue and green embroidered bracelet with a trident, which he loves and never takes off.
•When he is angry or upset at dinner, the drinking glasses quiver.
•In one case, he got so angry that the toilets exploded. Again.
•When he is really mad or upset he just walks straight to the bottom of the canoe lake and sits there.
•He almost got suspended from camp when he was so angry he went to the bottom of the lake and summoned a giant wave to look like a hand flipping everyone off when they tried to get him out. Chiron called Sally Jackson, and sent a note to Percy at the bottom with the words “Your mother is on the phone.”
