HOLY FUCK. SO I JUST REALIZED THAT IN THE SCENE WITH CAROLINA AND THE DIRECTOR AND EPSILON.

When Epsilon-Church is explaining why he hates the director…as he cycles through the memories of all the fragments, each corresponds with their trait.

“I’m here to remember what you’ve done.” That’s Epsilon: Memory.

“He was brilliant….” Delta: Logic.

“…and we trusted him…” Theta: Trust.

“…but he lied to us…” Gamma: Deceit.

“…he twisted and tortured us…” Omega: Rage.

“…manipulated us for his own purposes and for what? For this? This shadow?” Sigma: Creativity and Manipulation.

Magical Wood

Useful in the creation of artifacts or the building of homes and lairs, magical wood can reduce expensive enchanting costs by introducing energies native to their species. It should be noted that working with an eldritch lumberjack will be crucial so you do not run afoul with the local fey.

Bluewood: Commonly found in mangroves and near coastlines, these trees are great boons for water-based magic users. Bluewood planks are extremely buoyant and rot resistant. They work well to create platforms and docks, but rarely last more than a few years if not tended to with aquatic potions during dry seasons. Bluewood is best used within a few miles of the harvesting site as these trees tie directly into the local magical ecosystem, providing a filtration of water and storm energy.

Bones of the Earth: An underground tree that synthesizes the glow of subterranean monsters, bone trees are pitch black and extremely gnarled. They often sprout up beneath highly populated forests, drawing down curses and hexes from passing undead and especially wicked monsters. They entwine with the roots from the trees above to create symbiotic relationships, exchanging nutrients and various magical energies. The wood is pulpy and soft, useful for furniture accents and jewelry.

Hexblood: Black and red trees with golden leaves, hexblood trees can be found exclusively in areas deeply afflicted with dark magic. They grow incredibly slowly, taking centuries to mature, so even small twigs are highly prized by malcontents. Hexblood trees exude a chilling aura that is said to corrupt or kill any good-hearted adventurer that gets too close. While this power is dampened once fragments are removed from the tree, they do help channel necromantic and lunar magic.

No warnings (weird I know), well, maybe the title, cause that is a little weird. I drew from a bit of personal history on this from my time in the liquor industry, tending bar and working for my parents in their liquor store. It was a fun time in my youth when I was about 23-24 yrs old. So consider this is a blast from the past too!

 ~*~

You loved your job at the liquor distributor. It was just another office job, but every couple of months, you were invited to work the occasional events that were hosted by the manufacturer. This particular event was for Maker’s Mark bourbon. The top shelf events usually drew a higher class clientele than others, like Bacardi or Cuervo.

This event was formal, but not black tie, and you had the perfect dress to wear. It was classic black, sleeveless and had just enough shine that it shimmered when you moved. As you were on the clock tonight there was only a touch of cleavage, leaving more to the imagination. You had spent more time on your hair and makeup than you normally would have, but were pleased with the results. Giving yourself one more look in the mirror, you winked at your reflection before leaving the bathroom. You dug your black open toe heels out of the closet and a slinky shawl, then grabbed your keys and clutch, ready to head out the door.

You were just pulling into your parking spot at the hotel when your phone dinged. Checking it quickly, you saw it was a text from your friend and coworker, Laura, telling you about all the hot guys this event was drawing already. Texting her back your reply that you were headed inside, you locked up your car and made your way to the main ballroom.

You were taken aback at the expense these companies went to when it came to entertaining. The room was ablaze with twinkling lights and the room had been decorated exquisitely. The table linens were black, accented in gold and red. Each table had a Maker’s Mark bottle in the center, acting as a candle holder with a gold and black ‘40′ on each bottle. 

This wasn’t just the launch of their new product line, but also the 40th anniversary of the first bottled run of Maker’s Mark. This was a big shindig and it was the who’s who of the liquor industry in Minneapolis. It was your goal to move up in the company and tonight would be ripe for exposure. Everyone getting a sample would pass by your table. 

You strode gracefully to the table that had been set up for tasting near the back of the room. You and Laura were there to serve guests samples of the new line tonight, along with Maker’s Mark. You had to admit there were more than a few attractive men at this event, but you had to remind yourself that you were here to work, not find the next Mr. Right Now.

Subtitled: In Which Betty Realizes She Really, Really REALLY Wants the D. Like Yesterday

Okay, Betty…..slip your fingers up his thigh a bit further…..cause I don’t care if Juggie had a 6 episode/6 month/6 year plan to “get” me, I am gonna be tapping this boy’s sweet ass and finding out if things are as rock hard everywhere as they seem to be in a 6 DAY or less plan!!!

Where’s my other, pregnant daughter you young hooligans???? BETTY!!! Why is your hand almost in “Jug” “Head’s” crotch????

DW, Mrs. Cooper….Gossip Ghey (that’s me) says they’re now “boyfriend and girlfriend” and your daughter really wants Juggie’s D

Thanks for all your “help” Kevin!!! And dammit, Mom….now my 6 day plan is at least 7 days and I’m really not sure I’m gonna last that long!

Juggie: massive erection??…WHAT massive erection? I’m totally not ridiculously aroused, like 24/7…My arm’s just here cause I like it that way….now….how do I get Betty to go to that closet under the stairs with me….and will she be disappointed?? I mean, I kinda feel like I don’t know what I’m doing and I kinda want it all to be massively incredible for her. But I’m also jacking off non-stop cause I’m soooooo turned on I can’t even….

IDGAF. Just here for the bby…..

Juggie…I see your pants getting tighter and trust me, I don’t think you’ll be “disappointing” me when I finally get you alone and tear your clothes off….Oh, BTW, I’m gonna leave my hand in your lap for now…yep….I don’t anticipate any problems….

Betty, why is your hand under the table? Is this part of that “new thing” you guys won’t let me do with you? Oh, BTW, Betty….since you apparently now love Juggie, I want you! And sorry, Juggie, we’ll still be BFFs, riiigghttt??? Even after I’m an even bigger douche to you!

Oh don’t worry, Ronnie…once I’ve broken up their very happy and almost spiritually loving connection/bond thing, I’ll be shortly bored of Betty here and dump her ass….and then you’ll get ANOTHER 7 minutes in heaven with Archiekins!!! But ya know, there’s only so much of me to go around, amirite, ladies???

Why am I interested in this ginger jackass again? And how am I not cold?

Betty, now neither of them can sit with us. And yes, that’s MY hand in YOUR lap, returning the favor…<3333333….do you like closets under stairs? Or do you think your parents might go away any time soon????

Remember when we used to be friends, Alice?

Before we started fighting over that wrinkly contractor who looks like a monkey and is dumber than one, I became a trophy wife and stole your daughter? Maybe we can fix that….

OMG!!! My bby!!! Let’s make up and have the awesomest day EVER!!! No drama, riiiigghttt???

Surprise, bitches!!! Per usual, my attire is more suited to a cocktail party and I’ve brought my twin’s spawn a baby hearse carriage, in a style out of use for over 40 years!!!

Uhhhh…..Hi Mrs. Blossom….I see you share your daughter’s inappropriate fashion sense. I’d think a fancee rich society lady would know red with black accents isn’t really “done” at baby showers…

She’s right, mother. And if I wasn’t judging someone else, I’d totally be judging you, rn—-look at how much wine our hostess needs already

Meeoooowwww!!!! HISSSSS!!!!

Oh, Polly, dear….glad to see you have the ring!!! Shall I tell you how I actually murdered Jason because A) he’s Fred’s kid, not my son’s and B) even still, no fucking way was any Blossom EVER gonna marry any Cooper….but I’m not a baby killer, so you were off the table? And too difficult to get to, anyway? Yes…..Sheriff Roscoe helped me….cause I’m the REAL Boss Hogg around here!

Ohhh….mannnnn…..I wasn’t sure about being the only dude at this super girly shit…but this is aaammaaazzinnggg….cupcakes and other snacks, cat fights to entertain, that creepy old bag outing herself as Jason’s murderer….making out with my wife in front of everyone…..soooooo happpeeeee…..

Well, here I am to show my ass and ruin the day for ya, Jughead!!!

Archie, can you NOT???? Every time my hair is down and I look super pretty, you have to go and wreck it all. We all know I love Juggie and this will only serve to bring us closer, so can you please stop interrupting us when we’re “doing stuff that people who have gone through what we have do”????

madegeeky replied to your photoThe @docholligay “I Am Willing To Bribe My Way…

Don’t forget to tell us how yet again some salesperson thinks you and Doc are married!

YES THANK YOU

About a week ago, Doc asked me if I’d pick her up something at Sephora, which as I learned from her last visit is NOT in fact a furniture store as I originally thought. She needed me to get it because Montana has an Albertsons and that guy who made the hats in Tombstone, and that’s about it.

“Sure, but be REALLY FUCKING SPECIFIC about what you want, because I am useless in that place,” I told her.

“It’s a certificate for some free shit. It’s marked on the certificate even so you can walk into Sephora like a child and go ‘My lesbian says I have to get this’.”

THESE ARE DIRECT QUOTES FROM OUR EMAIL BY THE WAY

She sent me the certificate, and off I go, like the dutiful and wonderful friend I am. I’m doing great! Up until the point that I walk into the store.

INSTANTLY I AM LOST. I don’t even know what the certificate is FOR. I don’t know who works there and who are customers. Am I a customer? Am I doomed to wander this brightly lit hall of colour and confusion for the remainder of my days? What am I looking at? What is it for? WHO WILL HELP THIS POOR TORTURED SOUL

The two women right by the door, as it turns out. Oh, that was easy.

“May we help you?” the first asks. She is holding a hairdryer. I have a dozen questions, but stay focused.

“This.” As I thrust the card at them, the word hangs in the air, and I realize I sound every bit as out of place as I am. No, I can do better. I can fix this.

“My lesbian told me to get her this.”

Much better.

“Oh! you want [WORDS WENT HERE WORDS I DO NOT UNDERSTAND I ASSUME THEY WERE ENGLISH BUT AM I CERTAIN IS ANYTHING CERTAIN].” Taking pity on me, the second woman adds “Just go up a bit and to the right. I’ll tell them you’re coming.”

I assume the little headset walkie-talkies are entirely for the benefit of my ilk, and I am grateful for them.

Following the directions, I arrive in “fragrances”, which looks like a sprawling, expensive subdivision where sit rows upon rows of houses I will never buy. I’m met by a tall woman whose black outfit is accented in red, I presume stained with the blood of the lesser Sephorians she felled in her rise to power. I do not understand her world, but immediately, I respect her.

The transaction seems to me to take far longer than is necessary for a simple “Give me this free shit”, but I stand as patiently as I do awkwardly, and soon I’m given a fancy little pink box in a fancy little black and white bag, and social convention assures me we’re now done.

Only, the ladies who greeted me are waiting.

“Ooo, what did you get?!” the one with the hairdryer asks with intense and oddly sincere enthusiasm.

My time in this land has changed me. I can feel the confidence only familiarity brings coasting through my veins.

“Uhhh?” I reply, and I thrust the bag at her.

They both crowd around the bag, eager to revel in its contents. I want to ask why they’re so excited to see the shit they see every day, but I don’t. The customs are strange here. I am merely a visitor.

“Oh, this is a fantastic fragrance!” the second woman assures me.

“You’ll love it!” the first agrees.

“It’s not for me.” I don’t know why that’s important just now, but I feel like it relieves me of the burden of opinion.

The one with the hairdryer gives me a knowing wink. “You’ll love the way it smells on HER, then.” She drags “HER” out, like a purr. My brain is trying to make things make sense. It is failing. The woman, well locked in her own vision by now, is pulled toward the Holligay of her mind’s eye and inhales deeply. “You’ll smell it when you lean in to her. Mmmmm.”

I don’t try to explain further. At some point, the bag has found its way back into my hands, and with a “Oh yeah? Cool! Thanks!” I take my leave.

Sephora is a strange and bewildering land.

Also, this honestly all started because of this damn picture. (Credit not mine)

Thankfully, the rain had let up significantly by the time you parked your car at the bottom of the long walkway, reaching your destination. Warm hues of orange and purple cascaded in the sky as the sun set in the distance, casting a soft glow over the large residence ahead.

Grabbing only your umbrella and travel backpack, you walked for the remainder of your journey. Raindrops continued to pelt gently against your umbrella as you smiled warmly up at the towering manor ahead of you. It had been almost 3 months since the last time you were here and that familiar sense of security had crept up on you again. As unconventional as this place and it’s inhabitants were, this would always be your home.

guys…..kaz is such a mcfreakin nerd…you know what i just considered??? he wears a well tailored suit, gloves, and a top hat. you know who else does?? i mean idk how they’d look in the grishaverse but magicians. MAGICIANS. you know, like the one that fascinated kaz as a kid…in six of crows inej says all the barrel bosses wear flashy patterns and such, but kaz keeps it simple (i dare you to google magicians. they’re all in black and white with red accents. i.e. simple) and when she calls him out or whatever he says “i’m a business man”. i bet he said it because i’m a magician would sound a lot less cool, but think about it…. a thief with a gift for unlikely escapes. “i’m going to invent a new trick”. the way he runs his cons and uses sleight of hand tricks….that nerd probably considers himself a magician anyway.

anonymous asked:

Top 10 sentai suits design.

This one is one I’ve been thinking about for a while since I got it in my inbox. There are a lot of possible answers to this but I wanted to hold off until I caught up on some others and give it a bit of thought. Now that I’ve had the time, here we go!

10. Ryu Commander from Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger

This is going to be the most recent entry on the list and places this low because of that.  That said, I love this look.  I have always been a sucker for the long coat look on tokusatsu heroes going back to at least Shinken Red’s Super Mode and Kamen Rider Wizard, both designs I adore.

When you add violet, which is my favorite recent edition color, to the mix, you have a suit that REALLY hits my sweet spots for awesomeness. Plus, you make it dragon-themed and that just pushes it over the line to being one of the ten best ever.

9. Dragon Ranger from Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger

Sticking with Dragons and extra Rangers for a moment I can’t let Burai’s hero outfit go by without adding it to the list.  He started the trend of taking the look of the original heroic suits and adding to them (in his case the chest protector and added gold bands) to the design to make the sixth hero’s outfit something really special. His is also just a great take on the general Zyuranger costume theme and his shade of green is particularly appealing to the eyes, vibrant and rich but not pastel or too dark.

8. Starninger from Shuriken Sentai Ninninger

I am not the biggest fan of the series Shuriken Sentai Ninninger but I am a fan of Starninger, especially his ridiculous outfit.  This may be because I live in Texas and am an American and Starninger’s cowboy rock star outfit is exactly what I expect the rest of the world to think of when they come up with a Texan hero.  Built in cowboy hat?  Check!  Lone Star faceplate? Check! Faux fringe on the faux poncho?  Check and check!  I also love the balance between gold, blue black and red with the gold being primary and everything else used as accent.  It’s a great look and I can’t help but love it!

7. Heart Queen from J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai

One design element of Sentai costumes I don’t think gets used enough are capes.  I love them but more about that later.  Of call the old-school pink heroines, I think Heart Queen has the best costume.  I love the sash across the shoulder to the hip that meets up with her belt, I love the yellow cape that gives a nice color contrast with the rest of her costume, I love the heart-emblem faceplate on the helmet and I really love the four colored triangles on the shoulder.  Each one represents a member of the team and functions as an anchor point for the cape.  Love that design element and I love designs that run diagonally across like that sash/utility harness.

6. Kyoryu Violet 2 from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger

Two of my personal favorite design elements come into play here, the across the chest diagonal design and the color violet.  I really like the Kyoryuger costume designs and somehow, I like the new ones from the South Korean/Japanese co-production Power Rangers Dino Force Brave/Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger Brave even more with their addition of white accents for the helmets and areas on the uniforms.  However, none of those are violet so I ruled them out. This is a nice design and I really like the helmet with the dinosaur teeth and raised areas for eyes plus the little fins on the lower side to suggest the flippers of a plesiosaur.  That little armored shoulder bit suggesting a dinosaur eye just completes the look

5. Vul Eagle from Taiyo Sentai Sun Vulcan

If you can’t have a cape, I saw go with a scarf.  Yes, it’s more well known as a Kamen Rider costume flourish but I think it works for Sentai as well. Vul Eagle makes this list because I love how simple and iconic his costume is. The white and red color balance is great.  His yellow sun disc stands out on his chest and looks great.  But what really does it for me is his helmet.  The design might be kind of simple but I love the look of it with the huge golden eagle in the front and the yellow accents around the visor suggesting wings.  It’s a really great look.

4. Dekared from Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger

This is another costume I like for the helmet design. That’s not the only reason but it’s one of the first.  I like the police lights on the side of the helmet, I like the way the visor narrows in the middle and sweeps up dramatically to the back.  The visor shape reminds me of the headlights on a Nissan 350Z (which came out about the same time). The other thing I really like about this costume is the way the number designation is done with it being integrated into the left side of the costume and leaving one arm red and the other arm black,  I have a thing for asymmetric costume designs and this one is just fantastic.

3. Gokai Green from Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger

I really, really like the outfits from Gokaiger.  They pirate theme mixed with a Sentai costume really works with the flared boots, hat-like helmets, high collars and colored coat over a black undersuit just creates a unique look that I really, really think is one of the best designs in the last 10 years. So, why Gokai Green?  I like Green. It’s a good color when done right and Doc’s heroic costume is just the right shade of green to strike my fancy.

2. Akaranger from Himitsu Sentai Goranger

This may seem a pretty easy choice and it was for two reasons. 1) It’s the original Red Hero outfit and set the standard for what Sentai heroes look like. 2) It has my favorite design element of all time for a Sentai costume, that short cape. I love the way capes of that length move in battle and how easy they are to flourish dramatically without having them get in the way or drag like a long cape would. I also just love his thigh holster and high collar.  It’s a classy look that’s really passed the test of time.

1. MagiRed from Mahou Sentai Magiranger

Once more with the capes!  I love capes on Sentai outfits as I just said and I think the capes on the Magiranger outfits are just perfect.  I’m going to go with their original, non-powered up forms because I just think the outfits are better before the added on bits and changes.  The lines are clean and sleek, the material is nicer than the simple cloth used on Akaranger above and the helmet design works much better for me.  In short, good costume design is Magic!

— “I’m not sure if this is for love or old friendships or new friendships” by Claire Luisa

So this is what Keith’s life has come to.

Guests from every corner of the universe seem to be gathered for the day’s celebration. Each is dressed lavishly in the traditional attire of their people, creating a stunning spectacle of rich cloth, dangling jewels, and enchanting body art, like thousands of dancing canvases.

As a prince, Lance is dressed like royalty. Allura managed to find an old suit of her father’s on board the ship. Thankfully, the Altean style is similar to that of the Vruan’s. The suit material glimmers a dazzling baby blue under the light of the levitating chandelier overhead. Lance wears a white button-down beneath his suit jacket with the top two buttons undone. Blue swirls adorn his collarbone, as well as his shoulders, hidden for now. Tiny white and blue dots stretch the length of both eyebrows, and the makeup Allura chose makes his eyes stand out even more than usual. Turquoise gems adorn the rings on his fingers and dangle from fragile silver chains on his ears.

As much as Keith hates to admit it, Allura and Coran did an amazing job. Lance certainly has an ethereal, royal air about him.

Which is great for the mission but terrible for Keith’s sanity.

Every few minutes, while they make their way through the crowd, Keith convinces himself everything is fine. Then, he stares at Lance for a second too long and the allusion is shattered. Lance is easily one of the most beautiful people in attendance. It’s almost impossible to ignore the whole crush thing when said crush practically looks like an otherworldly being, like a fucking god or goddess or something.

Keith, on the other hand, feels… out of place.

The prince’s escort is not allowed to dress more extravagantly than the prince himself. His suit clings comfortably to his figure, and the black color with red accents certainly complements Lance’s outfit. A silver chain hangs around his neck with a small charm, adorned with the Vruan crest. The ring on his right hand matches one of Lance’s, boasting a sizable ruby. In the Vruan culture, a matching set represents the bond between the prince and his escort.

“Like wedding rings,” Pidge was all too happy to point out when Coran presented the rings to them.

At the moment, Lance is chatting up two lanky aliens. Keith doesn’t recognize them, but the tiny gold crowns on both of their heads are explanation enough.

“Of course, of course,” Lance answers with a little chuckle. “Thank you for your time.” He bows to both in turn and then grabs Keith’s hand. Even through his gloves, Keith senses the faint trembling of Lance’s fingers. He’s nervous?

Keith lets Lance drag him toward the center of the dancefloor. There’s a lull in the music and most guests have cleared the area. Once they reach a spot far from any potential eavesdroppers, Lance stops and fixes his attention on Keith.

“None of these people know where that stupid Galran prince is,” Lance hisses, lowering his voice. “Hell, the first few couples I talked to didn’t even know the dude was alive.”

Before Keith can answer, the band picks up where it left off. But, this time, the music has a more pleasant, slow melody. Keith curses softly under his breath. Of course the next song starts right as he and Lance reach the center of the dancefloor. They need to move and fast.

But Lance doesn’t seem to be on the same wavelength.

Far too gracefully, he wraps an arm around Keith’s waist and draws him closer. Keith is too busy having a minor heart attack, what the fuck, to stop Lance from intertwining their fingers and lifting their clasped hands. Unsure of what to do, Keith lets his other arm hang awkwardly at his side. “Uh—Lance?”

“Put your other hand on my shoulder,” Lance whispers. “Get rid of that noodle arm right now.”

“But… what… are we dancing?”

“Not yet, but we’re about to be.”

Keith reluctantly obeys Lance’s instructions. His gloves feel far more constricting than before, and, yep, here comes the sweat. He silently hopes there aren’t pit stains on his suit. And if he starts to smell, too, that’ll be the end of him. No more Keith Kogane.

Lance slowly begins to spin. Completely out of his element, Keith blindly follows. Or at least attempts to.

“You’ve never danced before, have you?” Lance prompts.

“Uh… no…”

“Right. That explains why you’ve stepped on my feet, like, four times now. Even though you’re looking down like a weirdo.” Lance scoffs and shakes his head. The light catches the jewels on his earrings as they swing. “You really never went to any of the Garrison dances?”

“Seriously? Of course not,” Keith huffs.

“Alright, geez, calm down. I should’ve known.”

“What’s that supposed to mean?”

“You look way too good in that suit to be giving me such an awful headache,” Lance whines.

He thinks I look good. Keith feels his heart crawl up his throat. That had to be a joke.

“And you look way too good to be giving me shit right now,” Keith quips. Two can play at this game. “But here we are.”

“You think… I look good?”

Keith considers tearing out his own tongue. Maybe it’ll keep him from saying embarrassing things for the rest of the evening. “I mean, Allura and Coran did a good job of making you look like a prince.” Smooth.

“I guess they did,” Lance mutters. He almost sounds… disappointed. “Now, to avoid blowing our cover, please just follow my lead. Okay?”

“Okay.” Keith can’t bring himself to protest. Lance makes a good point. A prince and escort would definitely know how to dance.

Lance resumes turning, carefully guiding Keith along. Other couples smile fondly whenever they pass on the dancefloor. To his delight, by the tenth or so turn, Keith quits stepping on Lance’s feet. They develop a comfortable rhythm, each footfall in time with the beat of the song. As the musicians continue to strum their instruments on stage, Keith takes a second to close his eyes. The melody really is beautiful.

The longer they dance, the closer they seem to get. Keith isn’t sure who’s responsible, but he likes to think they’re both at fault.

Keith inhales Lance, savors the body heat and comfort of being so close without the worry of what others might think. That’s the beauty of disguises. For a time, no matter how brief, you’re someone else. You can do just about anything under the guise of staying in-character.

At least that’s the excuse you can use if someone later questions your actions.

This moment feels fragile to Keith. It’s almost as if he and Lance are an actual couple, dancing together at a party. Keith wonders what it would be like to travel the universe like this. Lance at his side, a steady presence, a constant.

Keith lets himself be a bit selfish. He leans his forehead against Lance’s and breathes. His heart beats a frantic staccato in his chest, but he doesn’t pull away.

And neither does Lance.

A/N: I’ve been feeling very… strange lately. I don’t really know how to explain it - like empty, kind of sad, okay at the same time? But anyway, that’s not important. I haven’t written in forever and I am severely inspired by Thomas Brodie Sangster’s new photographs from the Boys By Girls Magazine so here’s a little dabble, it was supposed to be a one shot but i’m getting tired and it felt right to end it where it did for now but I’m hoping to continue it (I’m scared that i wont find the time though huhu) Oh, and for the purposes of this I’m just going to ignore that TBS is filming the Death Cure at the moment lol, I hope I’m not too rusty on writing lol and more so, I hope you enjoy !!


The smell of new magazines were never really your favourite. It was this strong, almost rusty smell that punched you right in the nostrils when you pull back the plastic it had been encased in. Sure, when it was just one new magazine it was okay but the girth of the amount of glossy papers you had in your hands counted in a pile of eight. The stench was far from pleasant and this was what? The fifth bundle of new magazines you were placing in the cafe?

A sigh escapes you as you gathered the magazines and tapped their bases on the table to fix them properly before placing them face up on the table. The magazine at the very top of the pile had a masthead that read “Boys By Girls” with a photograph of a dashing young man with long chestnut hair slicked back, alluring dark eyes, toned arms peeking out from a black sleeveless top that was accented with red, and a crooked almost-smile on his lips.

“Ah? Finally fancy one of us English folk?” an accented voice teased as it passed behind you.

You straightened up immediately, eyes wide as they found your always teasing coworker who you were happy to call as not only your new best friend but also your flat mate. “I was just admiring the layout!” you defended as you followed her towards the front of the cafe.

Vigilante AU

Based on an idea I got from jumping on board this post thread

  • This is post-reveal, aged up. The kids are about 19 or 20 for the main part (18-19 when the initial incident happens)
  • Chat Noir fucked up under akuma affluence and killed someone with Cataclysm—which could not be reversed due to sheer destructive power that caused it, the same way Cataclysm can never destroy a Lucky Charm. He was blamed for the death.
  • Akumas have stopped coming, Hawkmoth is waiting to see how this plays out. It works to his advantage because people wonder if he’s trying to protect Chat Noir. Maybe he was in cahoots with him? Maybe they both were?
  • Police tried to arrest him, the government tried to demand he surrender himself, etc. He’s clearly an adult now so they’re planning on treating him like any other adult suspected of a crime. Chat considers doing it to appease people, Ladybug says hell no. Publicly. In no uncertain terms.
  • And by ‘no uncertain terms’ I mean she either said something along the lines of “if you want him you’ll have to come through me” and “kiss my polka-dotted ass” or he actually ended up in police custody and she forcibly freed him before they could remove his ring.
  • Ba da bing, ba da boom: suddenly Paris’s beloved heroes are on the wrong side of the law.


  • Fast forward a year or so. Hawkmoth is still an asshole so akumas are still happening. LB and Chat are still fighting them because what else can they do? Letting the akumas rampage would solve nothing.
  • Adrien and Marinette have revealed their identities. Adrien moved out and has his own apartment. They both attend university. Marinette alternates between spending nights with her parents and Adrien.
  • They are dating, duh
  • None of their family members or Alya and Nino have any idea they’re Ladybug and Chat Noir.
  • Things are pretty much like they were before except now they have to dodge police and citizen’s arrest while trying to fight akumas and “patrols” were less about fun and more about sneaking around and searching for crime and dodging ‘traps’ set for them.
  • Nothing like a game of cat and mouse with two heroes and police helicopters.
  • Most of the major landmarks, including all of their most notable haunts, are now monitored for them. The Eiffel Tower is almost entirely off-limits to them since it’s a difficult location to get to and from without traveling on the ground.
  • There are no more public celebrations and events about them, though thanks to locals protesting, the statue of them in the park was left alone. But tourists still do come to the city hoping the glimpse them.
  • The mayor offers like once a month to pardon Ladybug and go easy on Chat Noir if they turn themselves in.
  • Ladybug and Chat Noir embrace the vigilante title by going after normal crime as well as akumas and performing rescues. Paris is actually pretty safe now. Backstreet muggers beware. But apart from that they try to behave and remind everyone they’re really only trying to protect the city.
  • There’s probably an incident like in Spiderman where they have to go rescue people, police try to arrest them, but let them go when it becomes clear their job isn’t done yet.
  • About half of the population don’t really care that they’re vigilantes. Neither does half the police force but they gotta do their jobs. Kinda like the Batman and Gotham PD relationship.  
  • But a lot of people still see them as a problem, think they’re secretly in cahoots with Hawkmoth, etc.
  • Some people see Chat Noir as the source of the issue and blame him for “dragging Ladybug down with him”
  • Chloe and Alya are still mega fans of Ladybug. The Ladyblog isn’t quite what it used to be and Alya has to deal with frequent comments about running a blog dedicated to vigilantes

Outfits

  • Chat Noir’s suit is pretty much the same except for his bell and tail. The bell is gone entirely; he can’t have something that makes noise like that when he has to be able to sneak around silently. After a few incidents where people tried catch him by the tail, the belt now has small spikes on it instead of holes. He doesn’t use it as a weapon, merely as a deterrent. (Ladybug’s suit is impenetrable and she can still seize him by the tail if necessary)
  • Ladybug’s bright red suit was spotted too easily (pun 100% intended) so she and Tikki had to come up with something different. Her suit is mostly black now with maybe some red spots or accents. She wears a braid instead of pigtails and the ribbon(s) are woven in with the braid.
  • I am open to ideas if someone wants to draw them

Fu and Other Wielders

  • Though Fu did approve of their decision to preserve Chat Noir over their hero status. They’re not meant to be textbook super heroes, they’re meant to fight evil and, in this case, free a kwami and Miraculous from evil. And if they have to act against the law to succeed then so be it. Wouldn’t be the first time it’d happened.
  • Fu has been hesitant to hand out other Miraculouses. If he chooses any other Miraculous hosts to help them, then he is either going to force someone into a vigilante role or, worse, the person might end up at odds with Ladybug and Chat Noir, or at the very least forced to appear to be in order to keep public favor.
  • He has discussed this with Marinette and Adrien.
  • Chloe does not become the Bee in this—Adrien and Marinette are aware of her opinions of the vigilante situation and neither of them trusts her to not stab them in the back.
  • Possibility of Fox Alya (though she’s not called Volpina because that word is Italian). Probably Renarde or something, unless that word has another meaning I don’t know about like ‘chatte’.

ilikethingsironic  asked:

I absolutely love your style! Your palettes are beautiful, any tips on colour for a beginner like me?

I like using pastel colors; Whatever is easy on my eyes, I like. And then I add an accent color, like blue, red, or black.

pluto-support  asked:

Do you have any tumblr headcanons for the ipliers? (Who would run an emo fan blog, etc)

Sure! Let’s see…

Wilford - Would probably have something pink and circus like for his theme, uses it primarily to promote his show and will reblog ANYTHING related to it, also reblogs stuff on gossip with celebrities, he was probably the first to get one and the one to push for others to get them

Dark - Uses primarily black with red and blue accenting things for his theme, he rarely uses it but when he does it’s to reblog aaall that emo brooding stuff (he’s the emo blog) and to post a call out for either the Ipliers or Mark, was the last one to get one and tried desperately to hide it, lowkey has a side blog that’s about cryptids and conspiracies, has managed to keep it a secret from everyone

Google(s) - Has a blue, red, green, and yellow plain theme, they get asked the most questions out of everyone and it’s used as a lesser source of information (like keeping tabs on the community and if Mark posts anything), the Google to use it the most would be Oliver since he enjoys interacting with people the most

The Host - Uses tan and gold for colors while also making it look like reading an ancient scroll, uses it the most out of everyone, posts his own original works while also writing fan fictions, likes to reblog all that author aesthetic stuff and others stories/fanfics, has a a few side blogs dedicated to different things, mutuals with Bim Trimmer

Dr. Iplier - Uses white and has an overall plain looking theme, surprisingly fairly gross since he likes to reblog a lot of things relating to anything medical (like someone talking about a cut that got infected and going into detail about it) but also reblogs gifs from hospital shows like Greys Anatomy and House, is a proud member of the medical side of Tumblr, has a side blog dedicated to his hospital aesthetics

Edd Edgar - He’s that blog we never speak about because it’s high key frightening since all he does with it is post/reblog photos of baby’s and puts different prices

Silver Shepherd - A super hero theme, likes to reblog things relating to him and superheroes in general, most people know he’s the actual Silver Shepherd and he terribly tries to prove them wrong, has become a meme unintentionally

Bim Trimmer - Has Matthias as his theme, it’s basically a blog dedicated to Matthias and how much he loves him while also promoting his show too, loves to post selfies of himself, him and Host are mutuals and like to show support for each other, he’s a close second to Host on usage

Bingiplier - Tries to have the most radical theme of them all but it looks more like a meme if anything, also holy crap the M E M E S on his blog, likes to ask the Googles joke questions via anon, has a side blog for his skateboarding

Yandere - Super cutesy pink aesthetic, posts selfies of themselves and a lot of Jacksepticeye strangely, most of them are ones he really shouldn’t have like Jack sleeping or one at an angle like he’s trying to hide, similarly to Bim his blog is dedicated to Jack, aside from Jack they also reblog a lot of gifs on animes, lowkey their blog is kind of frightening


Holy freaking cow I think I got them all but damn there’s a lot of Ipliers @.@ Thanks for the question tho!! :D

The Lady in Red (7/?)

Title: The Lady in Red (7/?)
Pairing: Steve Rogers x Fem Reader
Words: 1848
Warnings: Some violence
Masterlist

Tony ordered a suite for Y/N, FRIDAY working her magic and taking measurements and getting everything perfect. Y/N wasn’t sure how she felt about having a suite, she wasn’t an Avenger, but it made sense because Steve had insisted on a bullet resistant lining in the top. The suit was dark red with black accents. The black boots came half way up her calves and held a pocket for knives in each side, Natasha’s addition. Other than that, there were hidden pockets all over the place.

The team met in the hanger. Y/N watched SHIELD agents load equipment onto the jet. Sam walked by carrying his wings and winked at her. Y/N was only a little nervous. She would be surrounded with people who had quickly become like family to her. She knew she would do anything for them and they for her, but the thought of going back into a HYDRA base was a little scary. She was so steeped in her thoughts that she didn’t notice Steve standing next to her until he lightly bumped her with his hip.

“Hey in there, you alright?” He asked quietly.
