best mom in the world award

Headcanon: Farley and Clara go to see Wonder Woman
  • Farley gladly takes Clara with her to see the Wonder Woman movie. 
  • She dresses her daughter up in a cute Wonder Woman costume and takes pictures of her and proudly posts them on her Instagram.
  • At a young age, Clara has learned a lot about Wonder Woman and the Amazons and how awesome and great women are in general, because her mom constantly educates her about the history and importance of women and their greatest hits. 
  • Therefore, the two of them are really excited to see the film. Farley is particularly proud because it is directed by a woman director whose previous (and only prior) movie earned The Academy Awards for Best Actress.
  • They thoroughly enjoy the film, and at some point, Clara even notices her mom tearing up.
  • Clara feels a sense of pride as she realizes that her mom and Wonder Woman are alike in more ways than one. First and foremost, they have the same first name. Also, both Dianas have wonder, power, and courage within their souls. 
  • “I am Diana of the Lakelands, daughter of the Farleys, and your Silver domination upon this world is over,” Clara mimics in her best Wonder Woman voice.

pairing: Lin x reader

warnings: ANGST

requests: “Anonymous asked: because I’m a literary masochist (apparently), pretty pretty please may I have just all kinds of Lin angst? Ruin me with your words” (i didn’t write this for the request specifically, because i have another fic in the works that’s angst as well which i wrote for the request)

summary: Nine years of being married to Lin, and each of them was a blessing. (idk how to summarize it, just stay for the storyline please)

Okay wow this fic really took a lot out of me. Thank you to @sunshinemiranda for the advice and for generally being amazing! This was somehow inspired by What I’m Proudest Of by @ourforgottenboleros, who also inspires me daily. I don’t know how to feel about this fic. Enjoy!

words: 4050 lmao oops

-

before.

Lin paused the episode of Gilmore Girls and turned to you.

“Remember how our first conversation was about how boring parents were?”

“We were 4, though, so that’s perfectly acceptable.”

“Remember when you avoided me all through primary school?”

“That was because my friends wouldn’t stop singing ‘K-I-S-S-I-N-G’ whenever you talked to me!”

“Like I would’ve kissed you then, girls had cooties.”

“That wasn’t what you said in high school at that party.”

“God, shut up. I was drunk, we were separated in middle school, and that was the first time I saw you in a dress, okay?”

“Funny how we became best friends, though. Our friendship prevailed through the violent road of high school, college and after college.”

“Funny how we had such faith in platonic sleepovers and we really believed it when we said ‘Oh, we’re just friends.’”

“Funny how I told myself I wouldn’t marry you because my mom thought you were the perfect guy.”

“Funny how I’m getting married to my best friend and nothing has ever felt this right.”

“That, I can agree with.”

“You are so adorable, Y/N. Good luck tonight!” Chelsea says as she hugs Y/N.

“Thank you so much! Love you Chelsea!” Y/N says as she hugs Chelsea goodbye.

As Y/N is walking off the platform to walk inside since she’s done with her interviews, One Direction is walking up. Harry Styles reaches out his hand to help Y/N walk down the platform safely because of her long dress and high heels.

Thank you” Y/N says as she takes his hand blushing.

This award wasn’t just won by me, but by us! This is our award! I love you guys so much, thank you!” Y/N says excitingly into the mic.

After looking out at the cheering crowd for split second to take the moment in, she exits the stage.

When Y/N enters backstage so she can take a picture with her award, she feels two arms wrap around her waist from behind her. As she looks back and up she sees the most beautiful green eyes looking into hers.

“I told you you’d win, beautiful.” He says

“But” he now whispers into Y/N’s ear “you never ended up giving me that hug” kissing right below her ear.

“I’m sorry” Y/N says “I was just so excited…”

Harry interrupts her by turning her around to face him and saying “It’s okay, love. You can make up to me tonight. Dinner, you and me, to celebrate the big win. What do you say?”

Miraculous Pokemon AU

I saw this post and realized that my fav video game and fav tv show didn’t have an AU yet. 

That’s about to change :3 I’m so writing a fic on this later btw 


Marinette is the daughter of the owners of the most well know PokePuff and Poffin bakery in the whole region. Her dream is to explore the world so that she can gain inspiration from Pokemon so that she can become a successful designer. She hopes to design for award winning Pokemon, such as those from Pokemon Contests and those that are from movies. 

Adrien is the son of the CEO of Agreste Co., a new rival to the Silph Co. the biggest company in the game btw. His father often uses Adrien as the poster boy for the new gadgets the company makes. Adrien’s dream is to travel the world, make new discoveries, and maybe even become a Pokemon Professor. Of course his father is too protective to let him out into the world. 

Alya is Marinette’s best friend and they met because Alya’s mom works at a restaurant that serves sweets made by Marinette’s parents to the patrons’ Pokemon. Alya dreams of being a journalist and maybe even getting her own show on the radio talk shows on radios with people like Professor Oak are big in the Pokemon world.

Nino met Adrien when Mr. Agreste had a meeting about advertisement at a popular night club and Adrien wandered off. Nino and Adrien started off with a pretty good friendship but when Mr. Agreste found out Adrien had wandered off he forbid the friendship, though that didn’t stop them. Nino dreams of becoming a DJ and play at night clubs like the one he met Adrien at.

Marinette and Adrien met when Marinette’s parents we asked to do the catering for the Pokemon at a business party that Agreste Co. was hosting. Adrien and Marinette had a small misunderstanding which led to her initiate dislike in him but by the end of the party he had gained her affection through his kindness.

Marinette got her first Pokemon when she went to a Berry Farm her parents were considering buying from. She saw some rustling in the bushes and found a Ledyba yes that’s a ladybug Pokemon. The Ledyba was stuck in the bush so Marinette helped her out. The Ledyba became so attached to Marinette after that that her parents went out and got her a PokeBall so she could catch her and officially have her first Pokemon.
She named her Tikki.

Adrien got his first Pokemon from his father. Mr. Agreste hoped that getting his son a Pokemon would give him enough company that Adrien would stop asking to be let out on a Pokemon adventure like other children his age. Mr. Agreste gave Adrien a Shinx yes that’s a cat Pokemon that had been a gift from an power company hoping to strike a deal with Agreste Co. 
He named him Plagg.

this is getting long so the rest is under the cut

Early Life

Hattie McDaniel was born on June 10, 1895, to a family of entertainers in Wichita, Kansas. She was her parents’ 13th child. Her father, Henry, was a Baptist minister who played the banjo and performed in minstrel shows. Her mother, Susan Holbert, was a gospel singer. In 1901, McDaniel and her family moved to Denver, Colorado.

McDaniel attended the 24th Street Elementary School in Denver, where she was one of only two black students in her class. Her natural flair for singing—in church, at school and in her home—was apparent early on, and gained her popularity among her classmates. Following her elementary schooling, McDaniel attended Denver East High School for two years.

Singing and Dancing

While still in high school, McDaniel started professionally singing, dancing and performing funny skits in minstrel shows. In 1910, she decided to leave school in order to train with her father’s minstrel troupe full time. In 1920, she became a member of Professor George Morrison’s orchestra, and toured with his and other vaudeville troops for the next five years. In 1925, she was invited to perform on Denver’s KOA radio station. The performance gave McDaniel the illustrious distinction of being the first African-American woman to sing on the radio in the United States.

Following her radio performance, McDaniel continued to work the vaudeville circuit for the next few years. When work was slow, she took a job as a restroom attendant to supplement her income. Much to her relief, in 1929, McDaniel landed a steady gig as a vocalist at Sam Pick’s Club in Milwaukee.

Acclaimed Actress

A year or so later, McDaniel’s brother, Sam, and sister, Etta, convinced her to move to Los Angeles, where they had managed to procure minor movie roles for themselves. Sam was also a regular on a KNX radio show, called The Optimistic Do-Nuts. Not long after arriving in L.A., McDaniel had a chance to appear on her brother’s radio show. She was a quick hit with listeners, and was dubbed “Hi-Hat Hattie” for donning formal wear during her first KNX radio performance.

In 1931 McDaniel scored her first small film role as an extra in a Hollywood musical. In 193, she won a larger role as a housekeeper in The Golden West. McDaniel continued to land bit parts here and there, but, as roles for blacks were hard to come by at the time, she was once again forced to take odd jobs to make ends meet.

McDaniel landed her first major on-screen break in 1934, singing a duet with Will Rogers in John Ford’s Judge Priest. The following year, McDaniel was awarded the role of Mom Beck, starring opposite Shirley Temple and Lionel Barrymore in The Little Colonel. The part gained McDaniel the attention of Hollywood directors, and was followed by a steady stream of offers.

In 1939, McDaniel accepted a role that would mark the highlight of her entertainment career. As Mammy, Scarlett O'Hara’s house servant in Gone with the Wind, McDaniel earned the 1940 Academy Award for best supporting actress—becoming the first African American to win an Oscar. All of the film’s black actors, including McDaniel, were barred from attending the film’s premiere in 1939, aired at the Loew’s Grand Theatre on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgia.

Later, during World War II, McDaniel helped entertain American troops and promoted the sale of war bonds.

Controversy

Through the mid-1940s, McDaniel appeared in additional films, primarily playing roles that members of the post-war progressive black community were beginning to cite as offensively old-fashioned. Since playing Mom Beck in The Little Colonel, McDaniel had been attacked by the media for taking parts that perpetuated a negative stereotype of blacks; she was criticized for playing servants and slaves who were seemingly content to retain their role as such.

Walter White, then president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, pleaded with African-American actors to stop accepting such stereotypical roles, as he believed they degraded the black community. He also urged movie studios to start creating roles that portrayed blacks as capable of achieving far more than cooking and cleaning for white people.

In her defense, McDaniel responded by asserting her prerogative to accept whatever roles she chose. She also suggested that characters like Mammy proved themselves as more than just measuring up to their employers.

Later Life and Death

As the Civil Rights Movement progressed, the sort of roles for which McDaniel was typecast began to gradually disappear. As a result of her conflict with the NAACP, she was also no longer a popular choice for film roles. Movie offers eventually stopped coming altogether.

McDaniel reacted to the decline in her acting career by making a strategic return to radio in the late 1940s. In 1947, she took the starring role on CBS radio’s The Beulah Show. Although McDaniel was once again playing a maid, she managed—to the NAACP’s approval—to use her talents to break racial stereotypes rather than reinforce them.

In 1951, McDaniel started filming for a television version of The Beulah Show. Unexpectedly, she suffered a heart attack around the same time, but was able to resume filming after a short recovery period. When McDaniel was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1952, actress Louise Beavers stepped in to assume her role on the TV show.

Hattie McDaniel lost her battle with cancer in Los Angeles, California, on October 26, 1952. Since her death, McDaniel has been posthumously awarded two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Additionally, in 1975, she was inducted into the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame.

honestly. honestly. fuuma/seishiro friendship (for a given value of “friends”) is so incredibly important to me

they hate each others guts kind of?? seishiro only has like three quarters of a single emotion ever but at least two thirds of that three fourths is dedicated to fanciful daydreams of fuuma collapsing a steel beam only for it to fall on himself. whoops, oh, too bad. what a shame (seishiro probably is thinking). fuuma is the only other person besides like, hokuto sumeragi, who is a gift and a miracle in her own right, to ever correctly get a read on seishiro. he likes to push people to be their best by making them be their worst which is like pretty terrible or whatevs but that’s why he’s the end of the world incarnate.

what do these unimaginably powerful and terrifyingly competent men do? they have dinner dates. they talk shit about each other via passive-agressive one-upping like stereotypical suburban moms whose children are on opposite teams in the neighborhood intramural badminton league and can’t stand having their lemon squares being outdone at the league awards dinner. “let’s go out for crepes” one says. “oh but we must hurry” says the other, “for the world is ending after all, isn’t that inconvenient.” “haha, so true” says the first. disgusting, all of it. no one else is around to see this joke happen it is literally an eternal string of “I know you know that I know” etc etc.

and clamp understands this. they hate me, an innocent reader, but god do they understand me. what I wanted from this X interaction was this to continue sans the destruction of Tokyo. (which…. still happened in tsubasa. but. whatever.) now they’re brothers! yes! now they snark abt vampire twins and age differences because that’s how siblings are! hell, yes!

seishiro is for whatever reason shorter than fuuma??? I am dead on this floor right now, because seishiro got short and I bet a year of my life on fuuma never letting him live it down. he’s a vampire now hell never grow. this is Eternal and fuuma will enjoy it

AND NOW THEY GO FOR DRINKS ON THE BEACH LIKE SHITTY TOURISTS??? does seishiro fall asleep in the sun only to find himself abandoned and buried in sand. did fuuma find all his normal clothes replaced with tacky tourist tees and that is why he is dressed this way. what shenanigans have they caused. do they have a body count. did fuuma take pictures of seishiro carrying the arm because I goddamn well hope so

Crazy Is Most Definitely Genetic by CaliCocoa

family!au where Jimin’s just trying to survive high school, Taehyung keeps weirding everyone out, Namjoon is an embarrassing dad, Jin is supermom, and Jungkookie’s just along for the ride.

Namjin // Yoonmin // Vhope
Domestic AU, featuring parents Namjin with their three kids, Taehyung, Jimin and Jungkook. And then we have Yoongi as Jimin’s boyfriend and Hobi as Tae’s. And the whole story is basically just random episodes from their life and how they deal with whatever situations come at them.

We have the definition of a super-mom, Seokjin, who wins best parent award. Then overly-protective dad Namjoon, also a hugely popular singer, composer and producer. Taehyung, the kid who is unapologetically himself no matter what, Jimin as that one kid who really wants to fit in and Jungkook who is the most adorable little baby, with his own view of the world. Hobi is Jimin’s friend who ends up becoming Taehyung’s love interest and Yoongi who is more than a little in love with Jimin.

What I really love about this fic is how well it deals with the different kinds of relationships people have as well as with the different lifestyles they experience. We have yoonmin and vhope, the teen relationships, where this is the most obvious. Where one is the typical high school kind of couple, the other is so obviously much more, and that’s something you can’t really understand unless you read it. 

A huge plus are the few chapters where the story is all told from baby Jungkook’s perspective. It’s absolutely adorable and, in a way, it really feels like that’s how a 3 year old would think about things happening around him. 

I might also like it because it’s very close to how I imagined my own kind of domestic au XD

diva of dynasty


diahann carroll has done plenty during her six decade long acting/singing career.  so, for time and space sake, lets  just stick to the biggest and most memorable achievements.  diahann was the first black woman to receive a tony award for her performance in ‘no strings’ back in 1962.  she also received an academy award nomination for best actress in 'claudine.’  in 1968, diahann would again make history by portraying the title role of 'julia'on the small screen. this would be the first time a black woman had her own show and didn’t play a stereotypical or demeaning role.  diahann would continue that legacy in 1984 by portraying the glamorous diva, dominique deveraux (blake carrington’s half sister) on the nighttime soap dynasty.  and who could forget her role as marion gilbert (whitley’s snobby mom) playing foil to patti labelle’s character on the hit show 'a different world.’  diahann, although now in her late seventies, has shown very little sign of slowing down. quite recently, she has had roles on 'grey’s anatomy’ and the USA hit show 'white collar.’  she even penned a very successful autobiography.  black girl bravado applauds mrs. diahann carroll for paving the way for all the black girl thespians who now walk a less bumpy path.

7 Times Beyoncé Publicly Confessed Her Love For Jay Z

by TERRY CARTER

When it comes to discussing her personal life, Beyoncé might be the queen of secrecy. Even her 2008 wedding to Jay Z was kept under wraps until the singer decided to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at their special day during their joint On the Run tour in 2014. Blue Ivy’s mom hasn’t always been so tight-lipped, though — every now and then, Beyoncé shows us her vulnerable side and lets the world know just how much she truly adores her husband. Keep reading for seven times Beyoncé was proudly Jay Z’s biggest fan.

1. When She Gave Him a Special Shout-Out After Winning an Award

After winning the Billboard Millenium Award in 2011, Beyoncé made sure to mention her husband in her acceptance speech.

“I’d also like to thank my best friend. I don’t wanna put you on the spot [because] I know they’re probably putting the camera in your face right now. But I love me some Jay Z!”

2.  When She Gave a Heartfelt Toast About How Much She Loves Him

In her 2013 HBO special, Beyoncé gave fans an exclusive look at her life beyond the lights. During one scene, she tears up while giving a birthday toast to Jay Z.

“You’ve taught me so many things. You taught me how to be a woman. You taught me how to love. You taught me how to be a friend. You’ve given me so much in life and this is not enough. It’s not enough I can give you. I just want you to be happy. And every year, I’m even more in love with you and I want to spend everyday of my life with you. Happy birthday and I thank God for you every day.”

3. When She Opened Up About Their Unbreakable Bond

In 2013, Beyoncé gave one of her now-rare interviews to Vogue, in which she opened up about how Jay Z helps her balance her chaotic celebrity lifestyle.

“Just knowing someone’s always going to be honest and tell the truth, [who] can understand exactly what I’m going through — and I can understand exactly what he’s going through.”

4.  When She Was Excited to See Him After Being on Tour

While touring the world in 2009 during her I Am … World Tour, Beyoncé started a countdown to when she would see her husband. When the day finally arrived, Beyoncé was so happy she came up with a little cheer to express her excitement.

“And I am on to see my husband. I’m happy. I’m happy. I’m happy!”

5.  When She Said She Needed to Make Love to Her Husband

In 2011, Beyoncé fired her father, Mathew Knowles, as her longtime manager. The stress of their strained relationship became too much for the superstar, and she candidly revealed that Jay Z was the best stress reliever.

“I need to listen to ‘Make Love to Me’ [known as '1+1’] and make love to my husband.”

6.  When She Told Barbara Walters She Was His “Groupie 

"During a 2011 interview with the ladies at The View, former host Sherri Sheppard put the "Drunk in Love” singer on the spot when she asked Beyoncé if she became closer to Jay Z during her year off of extensive touring.

“I’ve always been a Jay Z groupie,” Beyoncé said with a laugh.

7.  When She Gushed About Him as a Dad

In 2013, Oprah asked Beyoncé about her marriage to Jay Z and got the notoriously private star to share.

“I would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man. It just gives me such a foundation. He has helped me on so many levels. We were friends first, for a year and a half, before we went on any date. On the phone for a year and a half. And that foundation is so important in a relationship. And just to have someone that you just like is so important. And someone that is honest.”

.. And last but not least, to my mother, who is here, the hottest date in town! I just wanna say thank you for giving me such a shining and wonderful example of the possibilities of life, for showing me the power of dreams and for being the best mother in the entire world. I love you.”

DJ’s dad is a world-celebrated political and conceptual artist, with pieces displayed in countless art museums, city-wide installations and art school foyers. Her mom, MC, is an award-winning musician, former mayor and occasional talk show host. She currently spends most of her time at home, working on her new album and being the best darn mom on the upper west side. DJ knows she has a lot to live up to, but right now she’s preoccupied with writing a lot of Korean boyband fanfiction and compiling alt-music zines with her internet pals.

2010: After One Direction being voted off the XFactor, Zayn said: “We’re definitely gonna stay together. This isn’t the last of One Direction”. 2014: One Direction playing sold out stadiums, releasing their amazing fourth album (on which they really found their sound) and being awarded for best artist of the year out of all the artists in the world.

In the spirits of the Oscars I would like to address something.

Many people like to believe that the worst shows out there are keeping up with the kardashians any shows on Disney now or Amish mafia. Although some of those shows are pretty pointless or seem silly the truth is keeping up with the kardashians is entertaining and at least it doesn’t affect my self esteem. Sure everyone wants to look like kendall or kylie. But no matter what with the TV show or not kendall would be modeling and we would still want to look like them. The real shame in the TV industry I like to believe is the fashion police. And it’s not because im a fashionesta and I think they all dress bad. No. It’s the sick idea that celebrities are playing a game of dress up to impress women and men who sit on their asses all day and point out the flaws that they themselves might be insecure of. Im a person who hopes to be on the big screen someday. And I know Joan rivers will somehow still be breathing when I do so but I don’t give a shit what she has to say about the dress I choose in my Oscar debut does any celebrity? Does there really have to be a public worst dressed and best dressed. Why can’t it consist of friends and family watching the red carpet who only know what they like. Not what is supposedly in this spring. In keeping up with the kardashians we learn about stuff to. We  learned in season one when khloe was scared and insecure we learn to one face your fears and two love who you are. In season say 3 or so we find out that we all go through an awkward stage because kendall and kylie are really gorgeous. None the less there aren’t many messages with keeping up with the kardashians although I don’t watch it enough to know them, but there are far worse ones when you go to Tv guide on a Sunday night at say 7:30. Because truthfully if you believe they aren’t doing anything morally wrong then you should also realize that the red carpet is about acknowledging celebrities who have been nominated and have done great work in the past 365 days. Not who is the best dressed of the night. The Oscars isn’t the Victoria secret fashion show, nor is it fashion week. It’s a celebration of cinematography that was on point this year. So Joan Rivers I have a message to you. I don’t care that when I make it if you hate me or love me. If you call me out or not your not scary you’re a bully and going through a high school with rich kids I’ve faced far worse then your comments about Adeles award having spanx. Your jokes are not funny. They are awkward forced and hurtful. I believe you could be funny but what you joke about is ridiculous. You have plastic surgery so clearly you know what its like to not like something about you. The only person I dress to impress is myself and im impressed. Black leggings some boots and a sweatshirt. Masterpiece. We fight over our ideas that societies media is corrupt. Well maybe if we started to get rid of what is a core problem we’d feel a little better. Because every award show season I feel bitter while watching Joan rivers make fun of people and people laughing with her. What celebrities wear isn’t something to analyze and dissect. If they like the dress well that should be enough for you. the most ridiculing should be between you and your mom about which dress was best. Not on ET or Fashion Police, Not on Extra or any other overrated news station who wouldn’t know an important news story if a starving child was under their desk. (Because its so important that Kate Middleton bought milk the other day. yes that was real news story). There is far to good in the world then we are making people believe. If they like the outfit. Then that should be enough you can scoff all you want and sit there smug and feeling powerful. But the truth is they are there winning awards. What are you doing besides gossiping and being so obsessed with them anyways?

Hey Taylor! It’s Ashley here :). We need to have a little conversation. I wanted to share a little story with you about my mom. Okay long story short, she’s been by my side for the last 26 years, and we’ve definitely had our disagreements in that timespan, but if it wasn’t for her I honestly don’t know where I’d be in my life right now. Because of her, I’ve been able to make my dreams a reality and have realized how important it is to always follow my heart because it can never steer you wrong, but if for some reason it does, well, those mistakes were meant to happen and I can only learn and get stronger from them and that’s what life is all about. Things happen for a reason, as my mom always says, and me finding you ten years ago was icing on the cake of this beautiful life that my mom has given me. We saw you two years ago on the Red Tour in Tulsa, and it was such a wonderful experience to share with her, one we’ll definitely never forget. I love her so much, Taylor, and I would just like to kindly request that you sing “The Best Day” on the B-Stage in Dallas Oct. 17. I thought this would be even more fitting because AT&T Stadium is where your mom presented you with your Milestone Achievement Award, and that was such a beautiful moment. So, I thought it would be amazing if maybe you would consider playing this song not only for my mom, but for your amazing mother as well because she has also done so much to make so many people happy. I’m so appreciative and grateful to have my mom in my life, and Mama Swift is a precious gift to this world as well. Thank you for everything, Taylor, and me, my mom, and my bestie @alltoowell89 will be singing and awkwardly dancing along with you in Sec. C138 Row 5 Seats 7, 8, 9 if maybe you wanted to say hi :) We all love you so very much Taylor, and we cannot wait to spend the best day with you on Saturday!!! Xoxo, Ashley.
