OMG I love 'Wild Things' so much!!!! It's everything I could hope for or want in a story and is just incredible! I love how you fused the 2 worlds and still kept most of canon, the humor was amazing especially the KakaNaru parts, Obito was incredible and the idea of him turning into some sort of nature spirit is great! The way you included Akatsuki and made them on the side of the spirits is just great! Ugh I can't stop smiling and am gonna go back re-read it AGAIN now!

!!! Yay! Thank you so much! Holly came up with the idea and I think I wrote 13k in like 4 days?? I was very inspired. 

(Tbh I left the idea of a sequel open pretty much so I could write an Obito-centric fic in this ‘verse. He almost took over the fic while I was writing because I’d apparently forgotten how much I loved him?? Which is REALLY RATHER A LOT, in case anyone was wondering.)

I like to play this game I call “Love Never Dies as the sequel to other things”, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Because you could swap out The Phantom/Christine/Raoul/Meg for almost anybody else and the character motivations would make just as much sense.

For example:

Les Mis: In 1832, Eponine faked her death at the barricade and subsequently fled to Coney Island and opened an amusement park. Ten years later, in 1907, Marius and Cosette come to Coney Island. Eponine has a son who is just Ten Years Old. Cosette is now an abusive alcoholic. Seven and a half minutes of awkward exposition informs us that Marius and Eponine totally banged the night before his wedding to Cosette. In the end, Marius is shot and killed by a jealous (and also not dead) Enjolras, who has fallen in love with Eponine.

Frozen: In 1845, after failing to acquire a crown of his own, Hans moved to Coney Island and opened an amusement park. Ten years later, in 1907, Anna and Kristoff come to Coney Island. They have a son, who is just Ten Years Old. Kristoff is now an abusive alcoholic. Seven and a half minutes of awkward exposition informs us that Anna and Hans totally banged the night before her wedding to Kristoff. In the end, Anna is shot and killed by a jealous Elsa, who has fallen in love with Hans.

The Odyssey: In the 12th century BC, Penelope’s suitor Antinous was secretly saved from death by some minor deity who owed him a favor and brought him to what would one day be known as Coney Island, where he opened an amusement park. Ten years later, in 1907 AD, Odysseus and Penelope come to Coney Island. They have a second son, who is just Ten Years Old. Seven and a half minutes of awkward exposition in dactylic hexameter informs us that Penelope and Antinous totally banged the night before Odysseus’s return. In the end, Penelope is shot and killed by a jealous Euryclea, who has fallen in love with Antinous.

Gotham: In 2015, Barbara Kean leaves Gotham City, moves to Coney Island, and opens an amusement park. Ten years later, in 1907, Jim Gordon and Leslie Thompkins come to Coney Island. Barbara has a daughter, whom she has named after herself, and who is just Ten Years Old. Leslie Thompkins is now an abusive alcoholic. Seven and a half minutes of awkward exposition informs us that Jim and Barbara totally banged the night before she left. In the end, Jim is shot and killed by a jealous Oswald Cobblepot, who has fallen in love with Barbara.

Reese Witherspoon Celebrates the 15th Anniversary of ‘Legally Blonde’

To see more from Reese, check out @reesewitherspoon on Instagram.

Fifteen years ago today, the world met Elle Woods: faithful sorority sister, mother to Chihuahua Bruiser and star student at Harvard Law School. More than a decade later, the legacy of Legally Blonde and its pink-clad character is as strong as ever, having spawned a sequel, a hit musical and its own vocabulary (when in doubt, just “bend and snap”). To celebrate the movie’s 15th anniversary, Instagram spoke with actress Reese Witherspoon (@reesewitherspoon) about her memories on set and what playing Elle Woods meant to her.

It’s been 15 years since Legally Blonde came out. What do you remember most about making the film? When we filmed it, my daughter was a year old. I remember her visiting the set and how much she loved all of the costumes and all the pink clothes and the dog. It was a really fun cast and everybody was excited about creating something that wasn’t just confection. It actually had a meaningful story that we had no idea would resonate so strongly with so many people. And it was about female empowerment. It wasn’t necessarily about the girl getting the guy.

You’ve said in the past that you got to keep all the outfits. Did you end up wearing any of them again? [Laughs] No they’re all very finely preserved between tissue paper and in a special storage unit. I keep a close eye on them. I have a couple of costumes that I feel really special about throughout my career, and those are definitely some of them.

One of the film’s most iconic moments is the “bend and snap” scene. Do you have any memories about shooting it? It was actually a full-length musical number and it ended up getting shortened. That’s why when you see it in the movie, everybody is dancing. But it was a fully choreographed number by Toni Basil, and she was awesome. She did the whole dance. I remember just reading it and thinking it was the most hysterical thing ever. That is still the most asked request I get from people. Even this past year, when I have been giving speeches or talking about whatever, they always ask me, “Will you do the bend and snap?” I have a feeling I will be doing the bend and snap until I am 95.

Have you rewatched Legally Blonde recently? No, but a girlfriend of mine sent a video to me recently of her kid watching it for the first time. And her son, who is 7, said, “I liked that Elle was the woman that she wanted to become and she didn’t need a man to do it.” It was so cute that a 7-year-old boy said that. I’ve also had people send me essays their daughters have written to get into school or camp where they’ve said Elle Woods was their hero. And I have had so many women say to me, “I went to law school because of Legally Blonde.”

I think it was a pivotal moment in feminism only because it was like, Oh wait, you don’t have to be learned and boring. You can embrace your femininity, you can love to get your hair and nails done, you can love fashion, but also be incredibly intelligent. And I don’t know why those were two separate ideas at the time. Now it seems crazy to think that people thought that. It was kind of a lightning rod moment. Which was crazy that was 2001!

You addressed this a little already, but what does the Elle Woods character mean to you personally, 15 years later? Well it’s a big piece of my life, a big piece of my career. I owe so much to the creation of that character. She’s a big part of who I am as a person. I put a lot of myself into that — a positive person who is trying not to let other attitudes bring her down. I am really proud of what we created. And it was an incredible effort. It was just a really special moment that I will never forget. It makes me so proud that people watch it and it’s still relevant and it reaches so many people all over the world. It’s very rare you create a character that people know that well.

I wonder what would happen, if I just…. broke your fingers. The thing is that you wouldn’t be able to play the guitar anymore. And then all your little friends would just leave you alone, and then you’d be just like Umbridge. Except Umbridge can kick your ass.

Playtime is over, kids. The adults are back.

I simply cannot express how much I would’ve loved to see this. The parallels are quite interesting too tho. We’ve got the charismatic ones who roped the other two in (Jack and Maxim), the ones who absolutely love robots (Wilhelm and Lawrence) and lastly the sharpshooting gunslingers who ‘never miss’ (Nisha and Alma). Send help. I spent waaaay too long on this. Pretty sure I overdid it. Also an excuse to draw those three younger. Headcanon hair colours ftw.

Sometimes I just… suffer because how much I want Nick and Judy to be canon. My heart hurts, it really does. I love them, I want them to be together forever, but most of all I want Nick to be happy because he deserves it. And I’m sure, I’m deadly sure he loves Judy and I’ll cry bitter tears if they won’t end up together in whatever sequel Disney is planning to make.

Being trash is suffering.

If I Had a World of My OwnDiaryofanarcissisticgayman

Part 2 of Through the Looking Glass (I See You Staring Back at Me)

“Jesus, it’s so gorgeous.” Niall gasps in awe, taking in the view from the enormous villa that Harry rented out for the week. The Elevado das Bandeiras is just below the main deck, about twenty meters down, which then drops off to the open ocean. There’s no beach right there, just some rocks that disappear into the south Atlantic, which stretches as far as the eyes can see. It feels isolated, and yet like the entire world is just there at Niall’s fingertips, waiting to be taken. “Haz, this place is amazing.”

“I know. The view is almost as beautiful as you are.” Harry chuckles, wrapping his arms around Niall’s waist from behind. “You should see the view from our bedroom. It’s even higher up. Gives you a better look at the city proper, and it feels like you can touch the sky.”

“I’m officially never going back to London. Let’s just stay here.” Niall beams. “We’ll shag and swim and tan for the rest of our lives.”

Fic Appreciation 2/?

I was listening to the BVS soundtrack again today and I noticed the way the opening theme “Beautiful Lie” is woven into the end of the “Their War Here” piece, and how this highlights what Bruce is experiencing emotionally during that scene, confronted with a child who has just seen her mother violently killed, inevitably reminded of when the same thing happened to him, the world being changed forever, and he feels powerless to stop it…and that’s the moment that he decides he won’t stay powerless. Bruce responds to tragedy and devastation by trying to retake control. Batman is his attempt to impose order on the world, which will only make sense if you force it to.

In his dream, the bats lead him into the light - which is, we are told, a beautiful lie. In the same way, Bruce wants to believe that his actions as Batman will bring him into the light, help him overcome the darkness, but he knows on some level that this is not what is happening.

Others have talked about the love between Lois and Clark being the true “diamond absolute” that Bruce also references in his opening narration, emphasized by the repeated closeups of Lois’s diamond engagement ring in the movie’s final scenes. And in keeping with this, the moment that Bruce is actually able to overcome his darkness, to turn back from his downward spiral into violence and vengeance, is a moment that’s only made possible because of Lois and Clark. Superman’s invocation of his mother’s name triggers the memory of Bruce’s parents’ deaths again, and Lois throwing herself in front of the man she loves to protect him recreates this tableau before Bruce’s eyes. They reveal to him what he has become, what he is about to do.

And that’s when Bruce is truly brought into the light.

The pros and cons of breathing

Summary: Funny, last time he checked, he still feels full. Full of countless feelings and thoughts that Phil used to throw at him nonchalantly, loving every second of attention Phil has given to him.

Now look at where we are, jealous like a motherfucker and- laugh.

Genre: In all honesty, I don’t know (it’s angsty, but it ends happy)

Warning: Phone sex, swearing (like so much)

Words: 2, 260 words

What she says: I’m fine.

What she means: It’s been five years since Tron: Legacy came out and now we’re never getting a sequel since Disney pulled the plug on it and decided to focus on the Star Wars movie. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m excited as the next nerd but I just loved Tron so much and wanted to see the story continue. What happens to Sam and Quorra? Does Edward Dillinger’s son become the main antagonist? Does Sam try to take back control of Encom with Alan’s help?

Transformers 30 Day Challenge

● Day 17 - Favorite Comic Book Artist: Alex Milne

I mentioned him a couple of times from the past days in this challenge. And I am not lying when I say he is perfect artist when it comes to Transformers in general. Pick any transformer from any universe and he would draw it out. I first heard of him when I got one of the transformers movie sequel comics and they are mind blowing to how seriously talented he was (is). I loved how he did the humans and the Transformers were also something obviously to behold. They are just perfect!! Kinda remind me of some manga for some reason, I don’t know why. They’re just that good. I watch him on deviantART and I think you should too, because his art is THAT perfect (to me anyway).

I know I’m not really good at expressing detail in words, but I just love his style so much ♥︎

entanglements: bonus

The much requested and gladly delivered smut sequel for the fluffly entanglements fic, which you can read here!

this one is for forgottenwhispersxo & n-a-d-h-i-e - because they are the two thirstiest losers around (besides me) :*:*:*

It took them two and a half months.

Two and a half months of sleeping in the same bed, of stolen kisses and secret explorations of the other’s body.

Ever since that first time they had kissed, four weeks ago now, Natsu and Lucy had been less and less able to keep their hands off each other.

There was only one problem concerning their growing intimacy: they shared the bed with one more inhabitant. Their furry little companion was a beloved little heater and more than welcome to share the bed, but nonetheless, some activities were just not for his eyes or ears.

And so, despite their growing needs, they refrained from more than curious touches and quiet explorations in the dead of night, for fear he might wake up.

Days passed, and weeks, until on the 77th day of their living together, it occured that Lucy was at their little home alone.

That by itself was not an unusual occurence. Natsu and Happy had left for the guild earlier, when she had not been around, and now she found herself cleaning up the mess they had made - really, why was it always her?

What was unusual though was that, when the door burst open with its usual force, Natsu entered alone.
