you know, one of my favorite things about isak posting about 21:21 is that for us it’s just so obvious, like oh! of course! 21:21, his birthday, his mother mentioning it after he came out to her, to let him know that she’ll always love him no matter what, the night of their first kiss, the o helga natt scene. but the people in isak’s life don’t actually know about all of this like we do. in the skam universe, only isak (and even, and his mother) know
this was isak looking at his phone and without a doubt smiling, isak remembering and being appreciative of all these moments he experienced and wanting to put it out there, in the universe. there is so much love in isak valtersen, sometimes he just has to express it 💝
Gotham s2e17: Oswald Cobblepot mourns the loss of his father.
Robin Lord Taylor’s father died, in real life, during the filming of the episode prior to this one.
“"So that scene where Paul died, my actual dad died and we kept shooting
that day anyways,“ he explained. "So I was acting my actual reality. So
production asked what I wanted to do and it was Paul’s last day. My mom
was with my sister and I couldn’t make it to Iowa, and it was a strange
confluence of events where your reality is what your character is going
through. There were some scenes that were actually happening in my real
life. It was my favorite and will always be my favorite episode.
Although I will never watch it.” -Robin Lord Taylor
Behind the man in white, stepping out of the smoke, came a bloody and limping Cassian Andor. He looked like a man who’d fallen twelve stories and clawed his way back to the top. He looked as beautiful as anyone Jyn had ever known.
taakitz superhero au where taako is the proprietor of a gourmet bakery that has thieves and villains descend upon it each night because the pastries are SO DELICIOUS and they NEED the SECRET RECIPES so they can HYPNOTIZE THE POPULACE or some other harebrained schemes. his baking is that good.
kravitz, local superhero, must swoop in every time and save taako! …but listen. he is not the superman of the city. he’s not even the aquaman. he is honestly sort of inept, but he has a great costume and an accent and he does his best! he has his heart in the right place.
taako is enamored both with his becaped rescuer and with the cute local reporter that buys a muffin for breakfast from his place every other weekday and has a real sweet smile. hey there, handsome, you want a mocha to go with your blueberry swirl? on the house ;))))
kravitz savors each morning interaction and while he wishes that taako’s bakery wasn’t burgled so often.. it is pretty nice to help him out…. and see him more…. one of these days he’ll ask him out! but will taako accept both sides of him???? kravitz wonders, staring moodily across the city skyline… emo sigh.
(taako knows they’re one and the same, but he lives for melodramatics, so he is all about this whole situation tbh. and kravitz’s mask falls off pretty often, anyway.)
(and listen. those shoulders? he could recognize them anywhere. mmmm. delish.)

Bruh this was one of the first Overwatch fics I read and I don’t regret it, very nice, really loved the thought process of Hanzo. Loved the fluffy end, loved the background reaper76 and I’ve seen some freaking amazing fanart for it. Also the author left a like on one of my posts and I’m still blushing about it
Four Days: Jesse McCree/Hanzo Shimada, fake date, mature
I love this one too, I absolutely love what the author has done with Jesse’s background and family. It was very cute and super fluffy, super funny and I honestly cannot recommend it enough.
I absolutely adore this fic so much. It’s super fluffy and cute and the story is sooooo good. I absolute love what this writer has done with the dynamic between Roadhog and Junkrat and the plot bruh, the plot.
Again I love this one, I love the dynamic the writer has written between Genji and Zenyatta and their relationship as the fic progresses. It’s cute, it’s fluffy and its funny (not to mention the more mature scenes are fucking awesome) and the end is amazing.
Once again a super cute and fluff fic. I adore how the relationship in this progresses and how cute the two are together. And has a huge bonus, it’s got my fave: trans Junkrat. It does get kinda sad at some points but easily overshadowed by the cuteness.
Quality smut right here, I love everything about it. I love that it has a chapter focusing on the pleasure oh Hanzo and then McCree, gotta love where partners share pleasure equally.
Temper: Gabriel Reyes/Jack Morrison, explicit, trans Jack
Seriously this is sooooo good I love everything about this. The story is amazing, I love the characterization, the love the dynamic between the two and I love how they handle Jack being trans. Does have some transphobia, mentions of body dysphoria and menstruation but I cannot recommend this enough.
Oni and Okashi: Tekhartha Zenyatta/Genji Shimada, explicit, fantasy AU
This fic bruh this fic is sooo goddamn cute and sooo goddamn good. I love all the fluffy goodness, I love all the thought put into the verse, I love the dynamic between Zen and Genji and oh goodness I just love it. For me I did find the single sex scene kinda jarring but that’s just me and I still love and highly recommend this fic.
Once again A+ plus smut with a focus on Hanzo’s pleasure and Jesse more then happy and willing to give it. Does focus on Hanzo squirting. And a bonus it only refers to Hanzo’s genitalia as the c word twice and nothing more. Very nice and actaully pretty sweet.
Anyway these are just some of my favorite so far and I may eventually find more or find myself not liking these at one point, but these are the Overwatch fics I love so far.
My long-winded and long-overdue Hamilton Chicago review
Here’s the thing, I could go on for hours about why I love Hamilton and the impact I think it’s going to have, but that’s a post for another time (that will come, because I have a lot of emotions about this show). For the time being I want to offer my thoughts on the Chicago cast compared to both the original Broadway cast (OBC) and the understudies I had the privilege to see. (A word on some of my comparisons: I’ve seen Hamilton a few times, and at least three different actors in each role, so that’s the basis of my Chicago review.)
Because of my ridiculous obsession with this show, I found myself in Chicago last week to see my favorite show yet again. I had the chance to see the show back in October doing opening weekend, and I was astounded to see how far this cast has come in five months. Don’t get me wrong, they were phenomenal to begin with, but this most recent performance blew me away (pun intended).
(If you want the short and sweet version of my comments, check out the tl;dr before the cut.)
In the room where it happens
Seeing the Chicago cast twice was an interesting experience, because with the exception of the parts of Burr and Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds, the cast was the same. The one constant, however, was the pure fire and energy this cast brought to the stage. They had a sort of bright-eyed-and-bushy-tailed feeling that made the excitement in their eyes infectious.
Looking at the Playbill, you can see the cast is overwhelmingly younger than their Broadway counterparts. For many of them, this is their first gig, so rather than having credits of former shows and national tours, they had thank you’s to parents, teachers, and God, but that doesn’t mean they looked inexperienced. On the contrary, they were an unbelievably talented bunch, but they took on the show with a sense of awe and appreciation for the chance to be a part of the phenomenon.
The New York show has an energy to be because it’s been rehearsed for almost two years now and works like a well-oiled machine; Chicago has the drive of a group of people who are diving in head first on an adventure into the unknown together, and it’s that ethos that gives you the feeling that you’re seeing the American Revolution unfold before your eyes.
The rest of my review is under the cut, but here’s the TL;DR:
Miguel Cervantes was my favorite Hamilton yet. Hurricane. Was. Incredible.
Wayne Brady somehow managed to combine the best parts of a Tony award winner (Leslie Odom Jr) and my favorite Burr (Sydney Harcourt) for a Burr that was calculated, emotional,
Joshua Henry was a new take on Burr that was very entertaining.
Jonathan Kirkland as Washington was good, but not great and only seemed lackluster because the rest of the cast was so phenomenal.
Ari Afsar gets the “Most Improved” award because her performance in October left much to be desired, but in March she was a fiery woman and a wife who did not take any of Alexander’s crap - basically exactly how I imagine Eliza Hamilton.
Alexander Gemignani is obviously a Broadway vet with plenty of experience. He made King George his own in such a hilarious and captivating way.
Karen Olivo is an actual goddess and gift to this world who slayed the hell out of Angelica.
Samantha Ware was a decent Peggy, but her Maria was insane. Everything about “Say No To This” felt like I was truly watching an affair unfold.
Amber Ardolino gave quite possibly the most provocative and sexy portrayal of Maria Reynolds I’ve seen.
Jose Ramos is such an adorable human being and his Laurens/Philip had such admiration and respect for Hamilton. It was beautiful.
Wallace Smith’s Mulligan/Madison deviated the most from the OBC simply because he is so different from original Mulligan/Madison Oak Onaodowan, but in the most wonderful way. If Javier Munoz is the “sexy Hamilton”, Wallace is the sexy Mulligan.
CHRIS FREAKING LEE. I have no words. With the right actor, Lafayette/Jefferson can really steal the show, and Chris is indeed one of those actors.
I’ve been playing Voltage games for about four years now, and I have to say, there were moments in certain routes that made me Feel Things™. Generally, Voltage games aren’t really known for being cynical or overly emotional. Heck, their games, while having some mature content, mostly have an optimistic feel to them. However, there were some moments in particular that stood out to me—those scenes were written powerfully enough to shake me to the core.
I have to admit, it was difficult for me to select a few moments from hundreds of routes, but I tried my best to narrow it down as much as I could.
I limited it to one character per game to avoid repetition.
I haven’t played every Voltage game (or route for that matter). The moments I’ve chosen only come from the games I’ve played.
I didn’t include SLBP because I only started getting into it recently (plus I don’t know too much about the other lords to make solid conclusions about them lmao).
This is all my personal opinion, so that means you probably won’t share the same views as I do, which is cool (I’d actually appreciate it if you told me what your favorite moments were :D).
Have you played Saeyoung's Valentine's Day route? There's some speculation about who the person in the ~dark chocolate~ ending actually is (Saeyoung vs Saeran) and basically I am shook. What do you think about this??
I don’t like the idea of it being Saeran. I love Saeran, don’t get me wrong. But it doesn’t sound like him at all. It was definitely Saeyoung 100%. The reason I say this is the fact that MC and Saeyoung aren’t living together or even engaged in this V-Day route, so I am assuming it was not enough time for Saeran to even be well enough to have a conversation as healthy as this with another individual. Also, we know from his ending that the glasses come off during sexy-time lolol so that’s why he wasn’t wearing them. BOI WAS READYYYY. (plus the eye color….hallooooo it’s Saeyoung)
It was such a wonderful scene in so many ways. One, because we get to see that beautifully wonderful sadist Saeyoung that I freaking am so weak for. But it’s also such a loving scene full of nothing but trust and respect. Two people just opening up to each other completely because they trust one another. Man, it was so great. Not only hot, but wonderful to see just how much he cares for MC (us) and is finally wanting to be himself around us while also asking if we are comfortable and ready???? I love this boy so much like I could write so many pages on this damn ending and on him as a person tbh. Anyway, this DLC with him was one of my favorite parts of this game entirely and I am grateful to Cheritz for this masterpiece.
