Ive been trying to do like a live action design of Shego, from the show Kim Possible. Anyone remember that? I think this cosplay would mostly involve adding a few extra buckles and harnesses here and there but keeping the over all Green / Black scheme.
Mulder and Scully are at complete odds with one another – just really out of sync – and Mulder wants to drag her along on a case file, and she’s like “pssshh. No, not gonna happen,” and so she stays behind and winds up getting in touch with an ex who just so happens to be in town, and this ex wants to rekindle their romance, and she’s all, “Omg but I have a life here, and what am I gonna do, and I don’t know how I feel about Mulder….,” but then Mulder comes back just as she’s figuring out what she really wants from her life, and they wind up having one of those belly-tingling type conversations that just make you go all heart-eyes, and then they end up in bed together and the whole thing is just so….*sigh*. It’s only a PG-13 rating, but it’s perfection and doesn’t need anything else added so….
Does anyone remember the name…?
I remember now. Never mind.
It was “All Things” by Gillian Anderson.
Whenever I think about how writing stories about established characters can be seen as trivial, I’m reminded that Gillian (and David, for that matter) have done the same thing. They didn’t create their characters. But they created and wrote stories based around those characters. So, basically, David and Gillian wrote fanfic and got paid a ridiculous amount of money to do so.
can you make a quote post about all the times petyr's scar is mentioned? <3
We grew up together in Riverrun. I thought of him as a brother, but his feelings for me were … more than brotherly. When it was announced that I was to wed Brandon Stark, Petyr challenged for the right to my hand. It was madness. Brandon was twenty, Petyr scarcely fifteen. I had to beg Brandon to spare Petyr’s life. He let him off with a scar. Afterward my father sent him away. I have not seen him since.
“I understand you knew my brother Brandon as well." Renly Baratheon laughed. Varys shuffled over to listen. "Rather too well,” Littlefinger said. “I still carry a token of his esteem. Did Brandon speak of me too?” “Often, and with some heat,” Ned said, hoping that would end it.
Brandon was a man grown, and he drove Littlefinger all the way across the bailey and down the water stair, raining steel on him with every step, until the boy was staggering and bleeding from a dozen wounds. “Yield!” he called, more than once, but Petyr would only shake his head and fight on, grimly. When the river was lapping at their ankles, Brandon finally ended it, with a brutal backhand cut that bit through Petyr’s rings and leather into the soft flesh below the ribs, so deep that Catelyn was certain that the wound was mortal. He looked at her as he fell and murmured “Cat” as the bright blood came flowing out between his mailed fingers. She thought she had forgotten that.
Since Julia appears to be mostly nonverbal, speaking only via echolalia, how do you recommend she express her story? This is a real question, I'm not trying to argue. I too am critical of many aspects of the Julia character. I'm autistic, but not nonverbal so I am struggling to figure out the best way to portray a character such as Julia. Thank you for any thoughts you have on the subject.
They could have had her used sign language, AAC, or other nonverbal communication to let her tell her own story and if they chose a form that didn’t have a digital voice output (like sign language), they could have had text underneath written as a translation.
If anyone remembers Apple’s Autism Acceptance Month ad from last year, they had a teen named Dylan using a AAC app on an iPad to tell his own story. That is one way to empower nonverbal/semiverbal autistics to have their own voice and I would have loved to see Sesame Street go that option because too many parents are 1) unaware of those options for their nonverbal autistic children exist and 2) think speaking over and for their autistic children and adult children is okay.
There’s this one creepy ad I absolutely hate and has scarred me forever to the point where I will never forget it which I’m sure majority of Canadians growing up in the 90s and early 2000s remembers called the “house hippo” commercial that would play like 8 times a day on our TVs and the message of the ad was “Don’t believe everything you see on TV” but they made the fake part too realistic without thinking of what kids might think because every freaking kid in Canada thought mini house hippos were real so they had to take the commercial down and I’m happy because no other Canadian kid today will have to go through what we went through getting brainwashed by this ad about hippos and peanut butter and chips and house cats
anyone else remember all those attack ads in 2008 about how obama didn’t have enough political experience to be president??? and how he wasn’t qualified enough??? and how the same people that paid for and supported those ads are now the people who are voting for someone whose only qualification is that he’s rich and used to have a reality show????
does anyone remember that tv ad from like 5-10 years ago and it was set at like a kids backyard birthday party and this girl put her can of soft drink down and walked away and a bug like a bee or idk some insect crawled in it and then she came back and drank it and had to go to hospital and the message was to like idk make sure u know what ur drinking so u dont accidentally fuckign swallow a poisonous bug
does anyone remember that omg
it fucked me up
every time i drink out of a can of something im so cautious to make sure theres no insects in it omg like 10 years on
If someone had told me little over a year ago that I’d not only fall head-over-heels for a shoujo manga, but also start a blog dedicated to it and have that blog reach over 7k followers… I’d of had a good laugh. A very good laugh.
However… stuff happened and here we are. And, as always, I really don’t know what to say. I’m both shocked and amazingly happy that so many of you bothered to hang around for so long, and for that you have my eternal gratitude. Thank you.
However, this time I decided I wanted to be a little more specific. This fandom has to be one of the nicest and funniest around, constantly filled with great art, fanfiction, edits and general nonsense. I love it all, but there are some people I feel the need to point out specifically. Many were here before I was, others not, and some aren’t too AkaYona oriented any more. But all of them are people I love seeing in the tag, love talking to. They’ve made my time in this fandom so enjoyable, and I feel the need to finally say thank you for that.
I know these are commonly called “follow forevers”, but I don’t actually follow many people on tumblr for different reasons. So, instead I have made a “stalk forever” - a list of those people whose blogs I constantly stalk and/or love seeing in the tag. They are lovely and talented people, so if you’re looking for great blogs, I’d recommend theirs. In no particular order:
These are the people who have made my time in this fandom great. There are, of course, many more people as well, but those above are whose blogs I stalk on a regular basis. I’m sorry to anyone I should of added but left out. I’ll likely remember so many more blogs in a bit >_<
However, I also need to say thank you to some more people, and that’s to everyone who has messaged me, laughed with me, talked with me, and just interacted with me in general. And you. The person reading this. This has either appeared on your dash or you’re on my blog reading, and that means that in some way you are supporting me. Thank you for that. Thank you. You make my time here worthwhile.
And lastly, thank you to Kusanagi-sensei. Without her none of us would be here, and I am eternally grateful for the amazing story she has brought us all.
Anyone else remember when Modern Warfare 2 had a controversial ad where Cole Hamels, a MLB pitcher, called grenade spammers “a bunch of pussies” and they called it Fight Against Grenade Spam (F.A.G.S)?
And then Bad Company 2 dissed them by bringing in CC Sabathia, a MLB pitcher, and calling out Call of Duty for their grenade spammers by saying, “isn’t gonna prove quite as effective as one might find in competing games of this particular genre” and calling the PSA Friends Really Against Grenade Spam (FRAGS)?
Quick Squad update! I’ve added more people to the list, and given us a cool new graphic. Also, I’ve split us up alphabetically just for a little order within our lovely squad. The disorder of the last one was bugging me.
This is just a fun little combination promo/way for us to all not be intimidated by duplicates of our character like we all know sometimes happens. It’s also a good way to prevent hate in the community, by uniting us all in a state of mutually creeping on one another on our dashes/gushing about how much we love each other in each other’s inboxes. I’ve done this before in another RP community, and it actually does help because people aren’t intimidated by one another anymore and become friends and encourage one another.
Again, if you want to be added, or feel someone should be on the list, or if you want to be removed from the list for some reason, contact me! This is primarily my project, so please remember to contact me before adding anyone to the list! Much love to all my amazing fellow Steves!
does anyone else remember that fucking awful ad campaign they had for Dr. Pepper 10 where the slogan was literally “It’s Not For Women” like I think “We’re Fucking Idiots, Don’t Buy Our Drink” would have been more effective
