'Amelie' is about a shy young woman who lives in Paris who one day decides to start doing anonymous acts of kindness. There's also a very sweet (non-sexual) love story and lots of eccentric characters and odd humor and flashbacks to her unusual childhood. It's in French and is very colourful (beautifully shot) and has a really lovely musical score/soundtrack by Yann Tiersen (I choreographed a modern dance routine to the Amelie score back in high school. It's magical.)

I might check it out if I can find it somewhere and I have time. Thanks!

What's it like to go to a convention and do a photo op?? I've never gone to one but I wanna see if the money is worth it :P

They are a LOT of fun, but they are very expensive, so whether or not it’s worth it is entirely up to the individual.

I think the key to enjoying a con is going in prepared. If you know how the con runs and how fast everything goes by, you’re less likely to be disappointed by the reality.

For example, going in knowing that photo ops are over in a blink and that you get a little longer at autographs? That’s helpful.

Creation cons are very different from other types of cons I’ve been to. There is one panel room, so you never have to worry about picking between panels, and there’s always a break built in, so you don’t need to worry about missing something so you can leave to eat. The best part is hanging out and talking with fellow fans; you can always find friends.

The photo ops do go by extremely quickly. There is loud music playing in the room and the workers will basically try to rush everyone through. You have enough time to walk up, say your pose, get into position and then it’s time to go. (You’re not supposed to ask for hugs unless that is your pose.)

Honestly, to me it’s worth it, and to me it’s worth it to go repeatedly (and to repeatedly get Misha’s M&G), but I know some people are perfectly happy only doing it once and some don’t feel the need to go at all. I say if you’re interested in it and you have the means, do it. (If you have any questions, just ask~)

How many different countries have you visited? And where would you absolutely love to visit (but haven't yet)?

I’ve been to a lot! My mom worked for an airline from when I was very little, so we got all sorts of flight benefits and could travel very cheaply. (The first time I had to buy a ticket, I got all weirded out because I’ve only ever traveled standby.)

I’ve been to… crap, let me see if I can list them all, I might be forgetting a few:

Ireland, Iceland, China, Japan, Egypt, England, France, Belgium, Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Argentina, Canada, Mexico, Bahamas, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Croatia, Italy, Greece… I might be forgetting one or two, but I think that’s the bulk of the list!

(I’ve also been to all but two of the States, just haven’t been to West Virginia and North Dakota or something like that, I forget exactly which two)

I’d like to go to Australia. I think it would be fun~ or see more of Africa (in Egypt we did a Nile cruise)

My favorite trip was Japan, for sure. (I’ve been there twice, and both times we kind of kept to the same area, but I’d love to go back and explore more; we basically just did Kyoto, Tokyo, and Hiroshima. One time I went with my family and the second time was on a school trip.)

  1. I Dreamed a Dream: a book that didn’t live up to your high expectations
  2. The Confrontation: your favourite literary duo
  3. Castle on a Cloud: a book that comforts you

spirk soul mate marks

ok I have one very important spirk soul mate marks headcanon and it is that they both have very vague marks as kids, it’s normal, to grow into it, but as they grow up it becomes a triangle.  People think it’s not growing right.  There’s something wrong with kid Jim and kid Spock.  It’s not until they arrive at Starfleet that they actually see it: the Starfleet Insignia.  Maybe they’re destined for the stars and that’s why they haven’t found their soulmate.  It’s not until they’re serving on the Enterprise together that Spock catches sight of Jim’s soulmark on his wrist.  They weren’t just led to the stars, they were led to each other.

Hope your doing well 😊 how'd you originally get into supernatural? I just started in February and I'm currently in the middle of season 9 so I'm very late to this awesome SPN family party. Also how do you make your cosplays, cause they're AMAZING!

I was really bored October 2011, so I remembered this show my sister had told me about (… and tried to get me to watch by telling me there were ‘hot guys’ in it, which…. yeah, it took me I think a year or two to get around to watching it after she told me it existed)

I marathoned s1 in less than a week, s2 took me a little longer, and by s3 I was kind of slogging through it. I would’ve probably just moved on and found a new show, but friends told me there was this angel guy dude whoever that was pretty cool and I’d probably like.

I figured I’d give angel whatshisface an episode to disappoint me, two if he seemed particularly cool, then move on so I could at least say I tried.

Then I watched Lazarus Rising and… welp.

Here I am, August 2016.

I should do a wing tutorial at some point or something. I mostly just play around with different things, whatever catches my fancy.

Could you please do a headcanon about domestic life for Captain Swan!?

Hello, love! You’ve sent me two excellent requests for headcanons, but I think I’ll stick with just this one because I’m old and tired and ready to go to bed.

  • Killian doesn’t have a full-time job, so he throws himself into projects around the house to keep himself occupied on days when he’s not helping out at the sheriff’s station, the docks, or the library. It turns out he has an excellent eye for design, and after he impresses Emma for the fifth or sixth time with his decorative suggestions she gives him full reign over the house.
  • She teases him about it occasionally, but she doesn’t have much of a response when he tells her, “I fell in love with you, didn’t I? I know my way around beautiful things.” It’s a line and she knows it’s a line, but damn, it’s a good one.
  • Neither of them really know their way around the kitchen but they learn together, immersing themselves in cookbooks and YouTube tutorials. Killian prefers Italian food and Emma loves Thai, which is handy, because they’re able to order in whenever their cooking attempts go down in flames. 
  • (Killian eventually masters the grill and Emma learns how to bake a mean dessert.)
  • Emma is infuriatingly messy. Her habit of tossing her jacket on the floor and her inability to unload the dishwasher are constant sources of friction between them, minor as they are. Once you’ve gone to Hell to rescue someone, arguing over the big stuff seems pretty stupid.. (Regardless, Emma never could have hacked it in the navy.)
  • Even though Killian is quite capable of dressing himself, Emma insists on buttoning his shirts for him every morning. (He always gives her a kiss for her trouble.)
  • It only takes one mortifying incident for Emma to learn a spell to sound-proof their bedroom. Henry still hasn’t forgiven them.
  • Emma should have known better than to suggest Killian try volunteering at the animal shelter. After his first day he returns home with a Bernese Mountain Dog puppy and won’t take no for an answer. 
  • (Look, it’s just really adorable when she finds him asleep on the couch with the pup sprawled over his chest. She’s only human.)
  • They have an official date night at least once a week, even if they don’t actually go anywhere for it. Dressing up is mandatory. After the first few outings Emma learns it’s useless to bother with underwear, and Killian learns increasingly-complex knots for his tie, just to watch her struggle with them when she tries to undress him.
  • (After the fourth week in a row, she brings a pair of scissors to the bedroom, Eldredge knot be damned. He stops wearing ties after that.)
