Sapphire’s petticoat is almost done!! All that’s left is to stitch the ends together and finish off the waistband! 

 This petticoat has five layers, used 35 yards of organza. It took me 24 hours in two days to get this all done, so I didn’t sleep very much, and I have a feeling my body is going to pay for this later but I don’t care, it’s doooneee it’s dooooone and now I just have to sew.. , , her dress.. . ,

After making Alex finally hang my poster…

Him: “Jfc, babe. You think that frame is big enough?!”

Me: “YOU’RE THE ONE WHO PICKED IT OUT!”

THINGS I NEED: Fem relationships w/ Lydia + other teen wolf girls

  • lydia and malia shopping; lydia taking her and helping her find clothes she likes
    after she becomes human again; lydia and malia doing something banal, like 
    candle shopping - malia insisting the “lightly forest scented” candle smells nothing
    like the forest at all.  
  • kira and lydia talking about boys scott:  lydia giving advice to kira, lydia helping her
    choose an outfit or location for a date. Lydia and Kira gossiping about boys at 
    school. Kira trying to hook Lydia up with people “ its one blind date, Lydia, how bad
    can it be”  “ what if it’s with Jeremy - you know I HATE Jeremy “
  • movie nights; the three of them in pyjama’s watching mean girls and reruns of friends
    and talking about life; talking about where they want to go, what they want to do, 
    their hopes and dreams. The clock reaching midnight and the girls slowly becoming
    more emotional - admitting they’re going to miss eachother after school, promising
    to stay in contact – HAVING FRIENDSHIP BRACELETS B)
  • malia, kira and lydia inside jokes; the frustration of the boys when they don’t understand
    what the hell they’re on about - the three giggling about something that happened a 
    few weeks ago while everyyone else is left to silently contemplate what could possibly
    be so funny
  • lydia, malia and kira passing notes in class - writing little letters to eachother and
    handing them over, without letting anyone else reading them. The notes probably
    being about the boys - the boys knowing this and wondering what’s written but a
    girl will never tell
  • malia, lydia and kira girls day out - getting their nails done and having coffee’s and 
    perhaps a spa treatment - Malia’s confusion over why anyone would want to put
    colours on their nails - kira and malia choosing a colour for her anyway ( yellow, 
    probably ) Lydia falling asleep during a massage - Kira and Malia leaving her there 
    just for a little while - she wakes up panicked af. Kira asking for a double coffee shot -
    Lydia’s raised eyebrows, Kira’s mouthed back “I’m tired, I had a big night” Malia 
    whispering back loudly - weren’t you with scott last night
  • tHE THREE OF THEM TAKING SELFIES
  • JUST THE GIRLS ACTUALLY BEING FRIENDS AND HAVING INTERACTIONS 
    AND LIKING BEING WITH EACHOTHER BECAUSE /THEY LIKE EACHOTHER/
    AND NOT BECAUSE THEY HAVE MUTUAL FRIENDS JUST SOMEONE GIVE
    ME THE FEMALE FRIENDSHIP WE ALL DESERVE BUT NEVER GET FROM 
    TEEN WOLF K THANKS

nothing can kick me in the teeth quite like those posts that are essentially “here is a woman doing a really cool thing! what a cool thing! isn’t it great that this woman is doing this cool thing in the world?”

and then someone has added a comment to the effect of “AND she is traditionally attractive/feminine doing it!”

nothing quite reinforces that doing cool things is not enough, but that you must also look good doing it, like those posts

I saw you, and I knew that I was going to do something really stupid to keep you around.

  • seriously?? Why does nobody talk about him?? he’s such a beautiful person like wow.
  • he’s poor, has almost nothing, lives in a place filled with violence 
  • he does everything he can for his sick mother
  • he’s so freakin compassionate 
  • and brave
  • willing to do anything for the ones he loves
  • the way he smiles in amazement when he see’s things that other people in the cluster are experiencing? 
  • he smiles in joy and wonder because he’s never had the privilege to experience things like this??
  • when he was so happy while looking at clouds?? “RIleyyy!! You’re flying!!”
  • when he drank the english tea oh my god 
  • and he’s freakin adorable and hilarious 
  • he’s honestly so genuine and grateful and puts others before himself
  • It’s so so inspiring to see the way he makes the most of his situation
  • how many people living like that can walk out of their door every single day and say:
  • “Today is going to be a great day”

There’s something heroic in a flapping coat, but at the same time, I need to get rid of it sometimes and just be a scrawny guy in a suit that doesn’t quite fit. So there was a sense of authority to him, but it’s undermined by his own carelessness. He wears a suit, but doesn’t wear it with proper shoes.

OK that settles it

People of tumblr, just so you know, I will be making “Through the Bedroom Door” into The Bedroom Series.

Same universe, a few years later and post-grad Levi joins Eren and Jean “In the Bedroom.” Age reversal and all the nasty. 

You get me?

au plot with these two teenagers are so fucking in love and they do drugs and they protect each other and couldnt give a fuck about anyone else and like if they were caught by the cops the girl would let her boyfriend hide his weed in her bra and they’d just smoke and party and hustle and there would be argument over people hitting on the other and there’d be rough sex and just drugs and angst and just bad ass

It’s on your face.

Kaneki was staring, he just couldn’t help it though. He was captivated by Hide’s dazzling smile, as though the sun beamed straight out of the other’s mouth. Maybe it was more like the moon, like the sun light shone off of Hide’s teeth. It just lit up that face, that face that was just so soft for him. Kaneki had noticed it, the way that Hide looked at him was different from the way the other looked at anyone else, gentle and candid expression reserved only of Kaneki. It made his own face heat up. 

“I really like your smile,” Kaneki found himself blurting out, tongue loose from the way Hide’s smile undid him. 

“You do?” Hide asked, doing something that Kaneki wasn’t privy to often, the sunflower haired boy blushed as he scratched at his cheek, adverting his eyes. 

“Y-yeah,” Kaneki replied, nodding as he hoped to see more of that tentative face.
