and you can tell that by putting the light on so like

Guys guys guys okay. So as everyone can see, the dress is two different shades/color in the first two photos. Okay, so I was playing around in Photoshop and I put the two different colored dresses next to each other. When I turned up the brightness/exposure of the blue dress, it transitioned to white & gold. Knowing this, I looked EXTREMELY HARD at the obvious blue & black dress. It was staring to become very apparent that the blue dress looked blue simply because of the lighting. The lighting of dress is what has universally MIND-FUCKED us. Looking at the two pictures, you can tell that the 1st picture has been turned down in exposure because when comparing the two, you can see a darker image in the lower left corner. When you lower the exposure it turns the picture BLACK. Also, have you ever been to a party where they had black light and you where wearing a white shirt? What color did the shirt look like? fuckin blue. Also, when you invert the color of the white & gold dress, you get black & blue. So in the end, it’s all about the exposure and lighting of this dress. The shade we see is somewhere in the middle. The original picture that was posted is the last picture in the series. In my opinion, the harder you look, the more you see the darkened gold & white.

Going through the mobile tag had become tolerable as days go by because of the fact that Steroline is clearly being given a strong storyline which is inevitably making them the main romantic arc this season and that all the reasons to hate thrown by the haters are being proven wrong in canon one by one. So you see, on the mobile tag I see the anti-posts. I see the Stelena and Klaroline posts and as a former shipper of these ships myself (well, a bit), it kind of affects me inside.

If the posts aren’t offensive, I usually just ignore and giggle because I respect that it’s just how they view things and of course I think they’re wrong (lol). And then I realize, maybe the root of the problem is not just that they strongly dislike Steroline because they strongly like another ship, maybe it’s also because they don’t like to understand what makes Steroline shippable. It’s like Damon when he said “not all love is true love, brother” which is clearly a bad piece of advice considering the only kind of true love he has ever known is the messed up one (not meant to shade Delena, just in reference to what Stefan explained to him later on).

In fact, I think I’ve seen some posts along these lines:

Stelena shipper: Stefan is clearly being guilt-tripped to have feelings for Caroline. With Elena, he just knew right away.

Klaroline shipper: If Stefan needed some convincing to admit he has feelings for Caroline, then Caroline deserves better. At least Klaus didn’t need anyone to see all those traits of her and saw it right away.

In the surface, it looks reasonable tbh. If I were a girl and a guy kissed me and was practically leading me on romantically knowing I have feelings for him but then hesitated especially when he knew I was emotionally unstable, I would take that as offensive. But that is Caroline’s side of the coin. Stefan, on the other hand, thought he was paying her and her mother some respect by choosing to talk later regardless of what he would have told her prior to that realization-when-he-saw-her-singing-like-an-angel-went-straight-down-from-heaven moment. He needed convincing, yes, he needed it. Because unlike that instant I-saw-all-your-good-traits-the-moment-I-saw-you-so-I-love-and-fancy-you-right-away kind of love, he saw all those traits of her not in the intention of loving her romantically but by knowing her by actually spending time together and understanding her which took a looong time by natural progression. He knows Caroline is all of those things (like are you kidding? He’s a hardcore Caroline fanboy like nobody else), but in his mind he’s not supposed to love her like he loved Elena/Katherine. In his mind, you cannot be friends with someone and in love with them at the same time. That’s why he was so conflicted. That’s why he needed convincing. He didn’t know that it is possible. And yet, even after he got that bad piece of advice from Damon, he figured it out on his own. On his own, I repeat. He could have pulled the rip cord as Damon told him to do, but he can’t shake whatever it is that he feels. And what do you know, another reason why he can’t recognize the feeling is because it is not like the one he felt with Elena/Katherine. It is not the messed up kind of love and he thinks it could be something even better. For him to say this is really very telling because 1) he was basically told in his face to gtfo of it and he could as well have if he wanted to 2) this is something brand new to him and he has no idea what it is and yet he decided upon himself it is worth a shot. And some people are still saying he’s being-guilt-tripped-and/or-being-forced like haven’t you been paying attention? Probably not.

So I guess it just comes down to what these shippers see as the right kind of love. They don’t want the kind that roots from a deeper level that actually requires a certain level of understanding for one to actually appreciate. For them, it has to be this from-the-moment-I-saw-you-I-already-want-to-spend-the-rest-of-my-life-with-you-even-though-I-have-no-idea-if-we-can-tolerate-each-other-when-we-are-at-out-our-worst-but-I-guess-it-is-all-worth-the-risk kind of love which both applies to Stelena and Klaroline. And I guess that’s fine because that’s the kind of love they want to see. But I know I am speaking for the whole Steroline fandom when I say that the character depths and internal conflicts that Stefan and Caroline have to deal with in order to be together is what make them much more fascinating because unlike the other pairings on this show whose conflicts to be together are that in the kind of I-love-you-but-you-love-another-but-still-I-will-fight-to-have-you or the instant love, theirs is actually them resolving their own issues which is much more interesting. They got past that getting-to-know stage ages ago with no problem at all; to act on the feelings they were not planning to feel is what’s they are struggling with now. A bit complicated when you think about it, but when they finally get together after all these complications they first have to deal with, they’d be laughing their asses at all the other couples in Mystic Falls because it will be a cakewalk for them from then on. Of course, assuming that the writers stay consistent with the narratives, characterizations, and trajectory all in all. *cough* Don’t you dare, Plec & Co *cough*

But yeah, different strokes for different folks, I guess.

In Sickness and in Health

Hi, so…

I decided to try and write another little oneshot for ‘memory loss AU’ in OQ week.

I know this is being posted even later than the last one but my god I was multitasking with so many different things and so I’m just going to say I’m operating on US time and nobody can tell me otherwise.

Hope this one goes down ok, I was in the mood for fluff.

The room is too bright. He opens his eyes and then scrunches them closed again with a groan. No room should be this bright. And whose idea was it to put the lights directly over the bed? It was like the hospital’s own brand of torture.

“Robin?” A low, familiar, male voice asks. “Robin, mate? You alright?”

He forces his eyes to open, squinting and waiting for his vision to clear and for the ache behind his eyeballs to dissipate a little.

“Robin!”

When his vision clears he’s met with a large man in green uniform with curly hair and a large grin on his face. It takes Robin a second to place him as his old friend ‘Little’ John, but when he does, his face breaks out in a smile.

“John, my old comrade!” Robin says, though his voice is scratchy from not using it in a while. “How have you been?”

“Considerably better than you, my friend,” is the reply, though the jest is a little closer to home than it should be; John can still remember getting the news his best friend and twice-comrade had been injured and necessitated in transference to better facilities to ‘improve his chances’. It is not something he likes to dwell on, but thankfully, his injuries in this second war had been substantially easier to treat than they had in the first one.

Robin frowns as he looks at his friend. “You look old.”

“Thanks mate,” he scoffs, “you know, you’re no spring chicken yourself.”

Robin registers that there is a weight on his left hand that is not from John, and when he turns to see who else is here with him his jaw goes slack.

There’s a lady holding his hand. The most beautiful lady he has ever seen.

5 pls! OQ

5. A Nap

She hasn’t been sleeping. He can’t be the only one who’s noticed, though he’s probably one of the few people other than Snow White who would dare to tell her that. He can already anticipate her response, the sharp edges of her voice cutting at him before he’s even said a word. It does nothing to deter him, though. He’s pushed her to the very edge, asking after her, insisting he help with things, stoking her ire enough that he almost expects to feel hot flames licking at his skin when thief and go away inevitably launch from her lips right at their intended target. 

But in between those insults and glares she’s so fond of tossing at him, Robin catches a glimpse of the light and softness beneath the hard walls she’s put around her heart, beneath the darkness she seems so fond of keeping, likely because it’s all she’s known for so long. It’s not so easy to hide pain when you leave your shadows behind. He understands that. But he’ll keep trying. 

Today, without any other preamble, he offers, “I can make an herbal tea that should help you relax. You need the rest, otherwise what could you possibly hope to do against the witch? You’ve no strength left.” 

"You expect me to agree to that?" 

"Why not?" 

"A tea made with…berries and twigs and dirt? I’ll be ill, is that what you’re hoping to accomplish?” 

He draws in a measured breath, sitting beside her. She’s been in the library all morning, reading books that are far more suited for someone Roland’s age, which leads him to believe she’s thinking of her son again, perhaps transported to the memory of laying beside him, his head tucked to her chest as they read together in those perfect moments before sleep beckons and little ones are transported to their dream worlds. He would seek the same comfort if he was parted from Roland, and that sympathetic ache for what she’s lost is yet another reason he remains indefatigable in his decision to be there for her in every way possible. 

"The berries would be freshly picked, the dirt lends a smooth flavor to the tea, and the twigs, I think you’ll find, are really quite tasty. Though I always pick them out after the tea’s finished brewing, of course," he teases with a dimpled grin, and he’s quite surprised to see the barest ghost of a smile on her lips before she ducks her head down to the open book in her lap.

marchetta meme | 3/9 characters: francesca spinelli (saving francesca)

"I just want to wake up in the morning and for the light to be on," she sobs, "and I want to stop feeling like a success just because I can eat my toast and I want to be able to brush my teeth without throwing up and then when I get through all of that, I want to work at getting that look out of your eyes. That look of fear that I put there and I hate myself for that."
"But when we’re happy, you put that look in our eyes as well. So you have to give yourself thousands of brownie points for that," I tell her.
She lets me trace the scar on her stomach. The scar I put there when I was born.
"It’s because you were in such a hurry and I wanted to have you all to myself for just a little while longer," she murmurs sleepily. "Even back then we were battling each other."
When I grow up, I’m going to be my mother.

Riley can you tell us of a time when Chris got really protective of you please?

Okay, so the other night we’re coming out of Publix and we’re walking to the car with our cart full of groceries (side note: you would not believe the amount of food that boy can put away at one sitting. I think his leg is hollow and serves as an extra stomach.) and we’re almost to his truck and three cruisers come speeding in, lights flashing, sirens blaring, and he picks me up and runs for his truck. He tosses me (carefully, but it was a toss) into the cab, calls Bandit who is out of the back faster than a bullet, grabs his gun, tells me to stay down, and goes running back up to where the other cops are piling out of their cars.

So, like, I’m sitting there on the floor of his truck wondering what in the hell is going on, and wondering if the ice cream is gonna melt, and I text Brandon, “Why are all the cops at the Publix?” and he texts back, “Do you not watch the news?” and I reply, “No, it makes me not worry about Chris as much.”

And so apparently there has been a series of robberies of local businesses lately and these guys decided to knock over the Publix and now I know why Chris has been so insistent on running my errands with me. He hasn’t let me go shopping anywhere by myself in the last three weeks and I knew he didn’t care that much about our wedding decorations. He spent three hours in Hobby Lobby with me last Saturday and didn’t complain a peep.

Silly boy. He should know southern women. We could’ve fashioned a working cross bow out of a decorative basket, a spool of floral wire and a knitting needle faster than the police could have shown up.

Still. It was rather sweet.

The 10 spots have been filled! Thank you to those who requested and started following me. :) I’ll find time to do some more requests in the future!

Howdy everyone!
So this is the only week where I do not have midterms (because I have two next week /ugly sobbing) so I would like to make some little heart things for the fandom!

I will take ten requests and all you have to do is reblog this and drop a message in my ask box (I will reply if you are the first ten). Just tell me the name and game your otomen is from!
The heart will have their CG, name, respective game, your username, and the URL to my blog in a light watercolor (click to see my biases for examples).

Uhhhhh if everyone who responds has their submit doohickey open, I can send it to you there! If not, I’ll put a bulk of them on my tumblr.
Yes. Okay bye.

At my store, we apparently have a customer christened with the name "panini guy". I had never encountered this man before, but my partners had, and today I got the pleasure of meeting this glorious angel of light. He comes up to the counter with an RTD panini already unwrapped and tries to hand it to me to warm. Naturally we can't touch food with our bare hands, so I try to take it by touching the plastic as he tells me to warm it "exactly like that". So I put the panini in the oven and warm it.

now the pan inis can be temperamental and in my case they tend to be hard to remove from the oven but i basically kept it all intact with just a stray tomato that i promptly adjusted. i handed it to him and he said “let’s see if you did it right”, and in front of the next customer berates me because the stray tomato has fallen out. he rips open the bag the panini is in and shows it to the customer saying “I can’t believe this? Really?” and tells me to fix it. So while I’m reassembling his panini he gives me a nasty look and then says never mind just put it in the bag so i can fix it the way it’s supposed to be. I am at the end of my rope here, so I ask him if he wants me to fix it with as little sass as possible. Finally my ss who was on bar comes over, and apologizes by offering him another panini. He makes a big deal about saying no, then my ss compensates by giving him a free drink card. RIP panini guy. Hopefully there’s someone out there who loves you.

Fangrai Short Story Update. (Valentine’s Day special or something like that)

"So, uh, Vanille told me about this … Valentine’s Day."
The pink-haired-woman sighed immediately at the mention of this day and put the book on the table.
"What did she tell you?"
"It’s a day for lovers I think? Where you – her words, not mine – ‘express your undying love for your significant other’ or something like that. With a lot of chocolate and flowers. Not sure though, I mean, why having a special day for this when you can do it every day? It doesn’t make sense to me."

… or in which Light and Fang just spend their day lazing together.

This is Sam Fucking Evans we are talking about. The man who put Mercedes name in lights because he wanted to be the first of many times they would be seeing her name in lights. He lit 17 million candles which I am sure wasn't just laying around the house and he had to buy to prove he loved Mercedes more than he needed to have sex. When the time comes to finally make Mercedes his wife he will have the perfect ring to do so. He is in canon known not to half step when he is in love.

YOU TELL IT GIRL! He’s going to look under ALL the couch cushions in all the land to buy that plastic ring from the gumball machine!! 

LOOOL I’m just playing. Seriously, Sam isn’t broke and when they time is right he’ll put everything he’s got into making sure his ladies finger is decked out with the best money can buy. And its not like Mercedes would even care where the ring comes from. Sam will do his best and Mercedes will love him for it. Folks are just messing around, having a laugh loool.

A moment of courtesy || Garnet & Zack

Gaia and Gaia. Two planets of the same stone. Two planets that shared the same heartbeat, flooded by the very souls of those who left behind their physical body and became one with the origin of all. Everything that once was would come together again; it made no difference if the stream of life flowed beneath the surface like a vein, or if the bundled memories shaped into the vibrant crystal that marked the core of the planet. What truly made the diversion was the corruption and damage bestowed on the twin of her own world. Put there solely by the human hand, great pumping reactors worked by the second to suck the life out of what once used to be a beautiful earth. The blueish-green light of Mako illuminated the polluted city. Garnet hadn’t witnessed a single day since her arrival when the sun and the sky weren’t blocked by clouds of smog and dirt. 

She remembered her first days in Midgar. Oh, what a struggle it had been for the young woman, who was used to the crisp and fresh air of her hometown. Not even Lindblum’s pollution had struck her throat with this kind of acidic stench and it had taken her an entire week to accomodate. Now, her nose wouldn’t burn as painfully anymore and she was glad for it, too. Midgar was not a pretty place, albeit highly praised by those who lived on the upper side of the platform. According to the people, many people all over Gaia attempted their luck in this city, hoping to make business - most of the time, they ended up like many others who were once in high spirits about their future - in the slums. 

And what an awful, sad place the slums were. Garnet had visited once and nothing had pained her heart more. Seeing all these poor children and people struggle with everyday life rose something very protective in the queen. And while she wasn’t queen in this world, Garnet had brought along some habits she couldn’t lay down if her life depended on it. Ultimately, it was an intense need to be helpful that brought Garnet into the headquarters of ShinRa, had proven herself as skillful enough to become a nurse in the infirmary. She thought ShinRa was a scary place inheriting the coldest and most automatic people she ever met. That, and a group of artifically enhanced human beings, supposedly there to “keep the peace” all around Gaia. War was no mystery to the queen and she knew exactly what “peace keepers” did for a living.

In reality, the sole idea of SOLDIER was terrifying. A man enhanced by mako could snap her spine in two with as much as a single brush of his hand, if he wasn’t careful. Being a healer in the infirmary had put Garnet in the position of dealing with these dangerous men on a daily basis. That, or helping those poor Infantrymen who had become victim to their unnatural strength during training and drills. At this point, and it was her second or third week working for ShinRa, Garnet could fullheartedly say that she’d seen it all. It only increased her already strong wish to find her way back home somehow - and that soon, too. 

But for now, all she could do was to wait for the next poor soul who fell victim to injuries while avoiding the sight out of the window walls at all costs - it was simply too depressing.
