and the things he does with his face

cornbreadcrumbs  asked:

I find myself in a Jon Snow mood. A lot has been said (rightly so) about Jon's mistakes and failings. What about Jon Snow appeals to you? What are his best qualities in your opinion, and what has he done to earn his spot as hero and head of the dragon?

What appeals to me about Jon is that GRRM has constructed his arc so that whenever Jon starts to act like The Hero in the most predictable, single-minded sense, he gets diverted and/or slapped down, and is forced to grow and learn in more interesting ways. That’s not to say the related tropes are bad, and indeed, they’re still very much there! But GRRM does not allow Jon to lean on those tropes to get through his story. They will not guide him, they will not mold him, they will not save him. This is the sort of thing that shapes Jon Snow:

Donal Noye leaned forward, into Jon’s face. “Now think on this, boy. None of these others have ever had a master-at-arms until Ser Alliser. Their fathers were farmers and wagonmen and poachers, smiths and miners and oars on a trading galley. What they know of fighting they learned between decks, in the alleys of Oldtown and Lannisport, in wayside brothels and taverns on the kingsroad. They may have clacked a few sticks together before they came here, but I promise you, not one in twenty was ever rich enough to own a real sword.” His look was grim. “So how do you like the taste of your victories now, Lord Snow?”

“Don’t call me that!” Jon said sharply, but the force had gone out of his anger. Suddenly he felt ashamed and guilty.

“The old man is Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch,” Sam reminded him. “You’ll be with him day and night. Yes, you’ll pour his wine and see that his bed linen is fresh, but you’ll also take his letters, attend him at meetings, squire for him in battle. You’ll be as close to him as his shadow. You’ll know everything, be a part of everything … and the Lord Steward said Mormont asked for you himself!

“When I was little, my father used to insist that I attend him in the audience chamber whenever he held court. When he rode to Highgarden to bend his knee to Lord Tyrell, he made me come. Later, though, he started to take Dickon and leave me at home, and he no longer cared whether I sat through his audiences, so long as Dickon was there. He wanted his heir at his side, don’t you see? To watch and listen and learn from all he did. I’ll wager that’s why Lord Mormont requested you, Jon. What else could it be? He wants to groom you for command!”

Jon was taken aback. It was true, Lord Eddard had often made Robb part of his councils back at Winterfell. Could Sam be right? Even a bastard could rise high in the Night’s Watch, they said. “I never asked for this,” he said stubbornly.

“None of us are here for asking,” Sam reminded him.

And suddenly Jon Snow was ashamed.

Craven or not, Samwell Tarly had found the courage to accept his fate like a man. On the Wall, a man gets only what he earns, Benjen Stark had said the last night Jon had seen him alive. You’re no ranger, Jon, only a green boy with the smell of summer still on you. He’d heard it said that bastards grow up faster than other children; on the Wall, you grew up or you died.

Now, of course, the Hero Must Learn a Lesson. That’s super tropey. But what makes it different is the message coming through: being a badass in the training yard and elevating the warrior corps of the NW above the others are not what make you a hero, and may indeed reflect your blind spots. Donal telling Jon that he can only wipe the floor with his future brothers because he was raised as an elite is one of GRRM’s most direct political assertions in the series, and is an absolutely vital moment for Jon’s arc going forward. Jon’s failure to understand the ramifications of being the Lord Commander’s squire pays off four books later when he makes Satin his squire; he’s learned in the interim what that position means, and the empathy he experienced for Sam is emotionally and thematically connected to his elevation of Satin.

I found something in the second chapter of OBS&BH that literally made me stop reading and put my head down. Yuuri was the one to start the whole stroking the side of the face thing. When he's drunk and victor's putting him to bed, he cups his face in his hand. Just like Victor does to yuuri in the later chapters. Victor picks it up from Yuuri. You've killed me (in the best way)

Yup. A lot of the reoccurring things that Viktor does to Yuuri are things that Yuuri originally did to him during the Olympics scene

Seriously though, that gif of Negan saying "Well would you look at that" does things to me.... its the look on his face and the way he moves. GOD DAMN IT DADDY.

Ugh. I totally understand what you mean. That gif of him angrily cutting his eyes does things to me, and that classic gif of him shoving a gun into his pants. Oh jesus… - GDK

6.8k || warnings for references to substance abuse and assault

Aaron Reyes was many things, but he was not a fool.

It was not a decision he made lightly, to announce to the world that he mean to find James, and bring him to justice. Sooner or later, James would hear about it, and by the time Aaron found him, he would likely be ready for it. He wasn’t going to go anywhere without a fight.

Aaron supposed James had more than a few reasons to take things personally. He was, unfortunately, sentimental like that.

What is the cutest thing Kyle does?

The cutest thing Kyle can do is when he’s super tired, he snuggles up against my chest and just smiles. It’s the cutest fucking thing ever, dude. Another is when Kyle’s sleeping, he doesn’t snore and he’s just snuggled under our blankets, my heart fucking flutters. Another is when he’s happy and he just laughs so happily, his face is glowing and his pretty as fuck green eyes sparkle.
Honestly, dude, everything about Kyle is the cutest shit ever.~

anonymous asked:

Are there certain things that you like about each member of vixx????? Personality and/or physical traits

Ooo, this is an interesting question! There are a lot of things I like about each of them, but I’ll narrow it down, hmm…

Hakyeon: My absolute favourite thing about Hakyeon physically is the constellation of moles on/around his ear! I also love the sound of his laugh. I love that the longer he’s laughing, the higher pitched it gets. It’s so so cute(*’∀’人)♥

Taekwoon: I don’t know if there’s one thing specifically, his whole personality is attractive to me (don’t @ me, thanks)… I love when he full on smiles because his teeth are cute?? Also his fluffy cheeks, I really wanna pinch them

Jaehwan: When he gets embarrassed at himself and does that shy smile/giggle, ahh ~ He’s also got really pretty hands, I cry

Wonshik: When he giggles and his whole face scrunches up!! I wanna d*e. Also that puffed out cheeks face he pulls when he’s thinking 

Hongbin: That little thing he does where he kinda shakes his hair (?) is so endearing. Throwing himself everywhere and clapping like a seal when he laughs? Good concept, I love. O.O face? Another great concept, I also love. Nose scrunch? I love. o3o face? I love. Curly hair? I love. Shark teeth? I love. Soft chin? I love. 

Hyuk: A better question is what don’t I like about Hyuk? I love the little noises/songs he does like ‘hoit hoit’ and ‘bum ba bum ba bum’. Also his voice in general? It’s such an aurally pleasing sound. And of course, his boopable nose, ahh. Also that thing he mostly does in v-lives where he just blinks at the camera, for some reason it’s ridiculously cute?? “leo, leo. no? okay” I really admire how smart he is too (I’ll shut up now ajkhlg)

ANON HOUR

Something horrible is happening on youtube

I’m going to preface this post with a content warning. This post is about child abuse. The video I’m going to link includes actually video footage of child abuse. It is one of the most upsetting videos I have ever watched. My post includes in depth descriptions of child abuse. 

This morning I watched a Youtube video discussing and highlighting what is happening on another Youtube channel. If you have the stomach for it, I’d suggest watching the video because Phillip DeFranco does a much better job of summarizing the situation than I can. 

For those of you who can’t watch, I’ll give you a very brief rundown. 

The Youtube channel DaddyOfFive is a combination family vlog and prank channel. In a recent video, the parents pull a prank where they pour invisible ink on one of the kid’s floors and then make him think that they believe he poured ink all over the floor. They scream and swear at this little boy, shouting things like “What the fuck did you do?” while the boy cries and cowers, looking genuinely terrified. Even the best child actors could not pull off looking as genuinely devastated as this child does. 

As DeFranco highlights in his video, although all the children are pranked, it seems that this one child (Cody) takes the brunt of the cruelty. In many videos he is seen being hit, kicked, pushed, and pinned down by his older siblings. In one video his father pushes him face first into a book case. In one video Cody begs his family to stop, saying that he’s tired of this. In another video his parents scream at him and tell him he’s the only one in the family who can’t “take a joke”. 

In response to some of the flak they have been getting, the parents uploaded a video about “Blocking All The Haters”. They goad the children into saying on camera that they aren’t being abused. Now keep in mind, the kids have been told that all the “Cool stuff” they have been getting is because of the Youtube channel. They know that if the pranks stop, the cool stuff goes away. Most of the children chime in that they are not being abused. Cody hardly says anything. The oldest boy says, “At least you aren’t beating us”. 

What is happening to Cody is child abuse. It is emotional, psychological and physical abuse. It is torture. And the worst part of it all is that it is monetized. The parents are being paid by advertisers to abuse this child under the guise of “It’s just a prank, bro”. 

So what can we do?

First of all, we can report the videos on DaddyOfFive’s channel for containing depictions of child abuse. If you decide to help by doing this, please be sure to flag the specific instances of abuse such as Cody being pushed or the parents screaming vulgarities at the children. 

Second of all, we can let the companies advertising on this channel know that we won’t be buying anything from a company that sponsors videos of child abuse. 

Finally, if anyone knows this family in person, they can make a report to CPS. Now the family is claiming that they’ve already been investigated and “cleared” by CPS, but that’s not how this works. Repeated reports mean repeated investigations. You do not give up and look the other way when a child is being abused just because CPS failed to act the first time. When my neighbors were abusing their children, I had to call CPS every week for over a month before something was done. Don’t give up.

Imagine - Zach gets jealous

@hanna-ranay Request: “Honestly an imagine about Zach would truly be appreciated, if you can. If not, it’s okay. Thank you!”

Jessica Davis was having a party at her house tonight, and of course you, being her best friend, had to go. You, Jessica, Justin, Zach, Bryce, Monty, and several other students from Liberty high were sitting in the living room playing suck and blow. You were sandwiched between Bryce Walker and Zach Dempsey.

You would never admit it to anyone, but you had a huge crush on Zach. And you’re pretty sure Jessica knew, she is your best friend after all, how could she not. But you were too shy to act upon your feelings towards him and you believed that he would never want to be with someone like you. Even though you hung out with Jessica and the more popular kids at Liberty high, you were still known as quite the nerd. And someone like Zach Dempsey don’t go for nerdy girls like you, they go for skinny cheerleaders who are drop dead gorgeous. 

Anyways, the game of suck and blow had already started, and you were pretty nervous to say at the least. Because you had to put your mouth against Zach’s with only a thin card in between the two of your lips. It was getting closer and closer to your turn until some girl pressed her mouth against Bryce’s passing the card on to him. He turned towards you, card on his lips. Bryce scooted closer to you quickly, sandwiching you more between him and Zach, until the point where you were chest to chest with Bryce and your back was pressed firmly against Zach’s muscular chest. Bryce then proceeded to place his card covered lips against yours, and quickly, in the process of passing the card onto you, snuck his hand around you to grab a hold of your backside and give it a good squeeze. His actions shocked you and you jumped, emitting a little squeal which was muffled by the card between yours and Bryce’s lips. Still in shock from what is happening right now, you faintly hear a deep growl from behind you…

“Don’t go near ________ with that, she hates spiders.”

   A slow, sneaky grin spreads across Justin’s face. Your brother Alex warns him again, but it does no good. Justin takes a step forward and you take one back, arms up in mock surrender. Being deathly afraid of spiders your whole life, you didn’t want anything to do with them. Justin is holding a huge, hairy spider in his hand and the look he’s giving you is unsettling.

“Justin,” you squeak. “You better not!”

“as long as i live, you will not harm him!”

this is mostly a testament as to why i shouldn’t draw whilst vaguely delirious at 1am (yes that background is MEANT to be atollon lmao) BUT -

i would love it if maul’s meeting with obi-wan was less ‘rar rar revenge time’ and more some sort of bizarre therapy session wherein obi-wan makes maul realise that he needs to make amends with ezra if he wants to move forward and have a chance at happiness. 

thus, maul leaves tatooine and makes a beeline for atollon - only to find that chopper base is under attack from the empire. maul cuts through the carnage to find ezra cornered by thrawn and a battalion of troopers (not pictured lmao) and - for, like, the first time ever - he acts unselfishly, taking on the battalion singlehandely so that ezra can escape alongside his crew. 

Poldark FACE …in which Ross has an epiphany. 

Things You Love (about Sherlock)

I would be happy if even a few people responded to this to contribute stuff they love about BBC Sherlock canon. Just stuff they enjoy without the need to think about it or justify it, etc. Happy things. Here, I’ll start.

  • John is so cute. Just looking at his face makes me happy. It’s fun to watch him get quietly angry, or pull rank, or look at Sherlock the way he does.
  • I also like to watch John sprain people.
  • Sherlock is also cute and makes amazing facial expressions, and sometimes he’s got at least a dozen chins. Particular bonus for Sherlock pouting and/or being drunk, and Sherlock making the oh-face.
  • Extra extra bonus for Sherlock’s really ridiculous jokes at John’s expense. Oh god. It’s kind of cute though.
  • Should I mention that time when Sherlock was fighting people and it was like slow-mo and his ass in those pants…. Actually, anytime Sherlock’s fighting people. Definitely worthwhile.
  • Everything is so pretty, shiny, with a great soundtrack, creative camera work, etc. Fun to watch even when you want to scream at the characters.
  • Mycroft being droll and smiling that little smile that says he’s humoring you but also imagining ruining your life in 1238 different ways. He’s like so catty. He’s the apotheosis of cattiness, to the point where Gatiss might have written a self-insert.
  • Sherlock’s little joke about how he imagines multiple ways to murder Mycroft, and actually anytime they’re together and are having that super-catty sibling Dynamic (although not *that* Dynamic… this is a different dynamic, okay).
  • Anytime Moriarty is on-screen, swishing and snarking his way to eternal glory, but specifically the immortal comment about shoes. And, I have to say, the lip-syncing.
  • Remember that time he swished his way to the crown jewels? Yeah. Foxy.
  • That time John held on to Sherlock’s sleeve, carefully, as they ran.
  • That time Sherlock looked at John across the cop cars, and said to himself: ‘oh my god’, because. Oh my God, right?
  • That time John called Sherlock an annoying dick, a cock, and a drama queen… but you know he meant I love you.
  • That time in Mrs Hudson’s kitchen. John’s face.
  • The times in the taxi. All the times.
  • That time Sherlock winked at John in that hugely exaggerated way, like, you *know* what I mean, Jooohhnnn.
  • That time Sherlock woke up and his first word was 'John’, and then when he was out of it and a pretty lady he’s supposed to have been into was trying to hit on him, but he started and said, 'where’s John?’
  • That time John was just kinda asking whether Sherlock was single, licking his lips like, 'good’. That’s what he said.
  • That time Sherlock blinked a lot and John was like, okay now this is getting kind of intense…. 😳

More, anyone?
