i imagine this taking place in a relatively early cycle when merle, like….was off doing merle things; iirc, taako doesn’t have THAT many deaths under his belt, so losing him was probably hard to get used to. i also headcanon that it wasn’t often that the taaco twins didn’t go down together. so. here’s this.
also do consider full-viewing; i overestimated how large the panels would look.
“Just stopping in to show some interest. And see if it might be returned.” “Oh, flattered, Ryder, but I’m not into guys. Thanks, though. Still, answer me this: would I be a one night thing, or do I read as marriage material?” - source
Just your gals Kate McKinnon and Kristen Wiig, wearing the same dress. I mean I know we’re all still freaking out about that amazing SNL episode with Kristen Stewart (also because of the shirt sharing thing). But then I found this and it’s just the best! They both look gorgeous!!!!
for anyone who wants to know, these are the sketches (you can find them on YouTube) Kate: Southern Ladies - aired 05/09/2015 Kristen: Timecrowave - aired 05/15/2010 Gifs are mine
underneath alec, magnus’s gold sheets were soft and silky to the touch, pooling between his legs as he laid back against the full pillows. across the room at one of the dressers, magnus was shirtless, boxers clinging tight to his ass and his thighs as the sound of his rings clinking echoed in the room, that same sound echoing, metal against ceramic, as his necklaces came off one by one.

alec pressed his lips together, breathing in slowly and then he dragged his tongue over his lower lip as he breathed out, watching as magnus turned towards him, his hip pushed against the dresser. he was staring now, eyelids heavy over his beautiful dark brown eyes and just a hint of a smile tucked into the corner of his mouth.
“are you tired?” magnus asked, his deep voice reverberating. alec contemplated it for a moment, but really he was just staring at the way the light illuminated one half of magnus’s face, the beauty spot above is eyebrow dark against his tawny skin. alec breathed in again slowly, his own eyelids drooping and he felt the question slipping out of his mind as he dragged the pads of his fingers through the hair on his chest.
When people say doing their makeup is an art and that's why they wear it
There are dozens of other media to work with. Most of which don’t center on masking your natural beauty so that you can adhere to a narrow set of standards.
Why not try out an art form that doesn’t put money right in the pockets of mostly male corporations? That doesn’t contain carcinogens? That isn’t rooted in sexist and sometimes racist ideals? That can be preserved and treasured for decades? That can even be sold for profit in your spare time?
There are so, so many creative outlets. Why would you choose to spend hundreds of dollars on makeup that you will just wash off, when you could be painting, working with yarn, sewing, embroidering, sketching, sculpting, making jewelry, taking pictures, carpentry, costuming, collaging, carving…
