but i don't exactly know what

hi Danielle, I swear I could listen to Jen talk about Emma all day long! She probably knows Emma better than herself at this stage so she knows exactly what kind of wedding dress Emma would wear. Also I know next to nothing about how tv shows are made but I do think it's unusual that Jen is given so much say in what Emma wears and I think it's pretty amazing that A&E value her input so much. From Jen's interviews she seems to really enjoy being part of the design process.

I. Could. Too.

I think it’s quite clear that she adores this character, fully understands this character, and wants all the happiness for her. I also think Jen takes in interest in expressing oneself through fashion and clothing choices, anyway, so I’m glad Eddy and Adam and Eduardo have given her the freedom of having a say in Emma’s wardrobe choices.

(I’m not that well-versed in how much choice and input the actor is typically given in wardrobe, either, but I’m betting that it, like other elements of translation from page to screen, probably varies from creator to creator. For example, some writers or showrunners are fine with the actors rewording some lines if they flow off the tongue better or ad-libbing here and there; others don’t allow that kind of adaptation and want the actors to deliver the lines as written with no changes or rewording. So it kind of all depends. I personally like that Adam and Eddy, with this and other things I’ve heard over the years, seem to want to allow the process to be at least somewhat collaborative; it shows that they value their actors’ opinions as to the story they’re spending their time acting out, you know?)

So yes, being as Adam and Eddy have developed Emma’s story over the past six years, Jen has played out that story over the last six years, and that Eduardo has been dressing Emma for the past six years, I enjoyed Jen explaining how they came to settle on the design for Emma’s wedding dress. No one is obligated to love it or even agree with them, but I do think that some respect for the work they’ve put in and the clear thought process that went into choosing the design elements they chose is warranted.

And while you’ve provided me the opportunity to step on my soapbox a little:

I can’t believe this is even a drama, you guys. I cannot believe Dressgate 2017 is even a thing. Instead of nitpicking the dress or the veil or the flowers in the bouquet, I prefer to focus on the fact that Emma Swan and Killian Jones are, y’know, actually getting married. I prefer to focus on the fact that Emma even has a dress to get married in because the marriage is happening in the first place.

I once reblogged something with semi-joking addition that Emma and Killian could have the most romantic, fairy-tale-iest wedding of all time and there would still be fans finding problems with the dress or the bouquet or the venue. And now that the dress has been revealed, what I am actually seeing with my own two eyes? Nitpicks about the dress and the veil and the bouquet.

Face, meet palm and head, meet desk.

I honestly think the show is at the point for some people where it just cannot do anything good enough. Nothing is going to make some fans happy. Here we have the marriage of two characters we’ve watched fall in love from the moment they first met (all four times!) and some fans are unhappy because the dress isn’t what they envisioned.

I fully understand that you can’t please all of the people all of the time but I also think sometimes other fans need to remember that, too. No single show can do everything right by everyone so maybe some things just need to be let go so they can enjoy what’s in front of them.

I just … don’t get it. I think Emma looks beautiful and I think the dress is gorgeous and I think Jen is excited and proud of how it came out.

And I think it’s important to remember that the people who designed the dress are professionals who have been living intimately with the character (well, as intimately as they can with a fictional character … you know what I mean ;)) for six whole years. Again, no one is obligated to like it and people are entitled to their own opinions. But just as I find it unnecessarily dismissive to pick apart the writing on the show and pick on the writers, I find it just as unnecessarily dismissive to pick apart the design of a wedding dress because someone may not personally find it suitable to their own tastes or because they would have done it differently.

Whew, that got long!! Sorry for the vent but thank you for providing me the opportunity to rant! I apparently have lots of feelings about this. ;)

Exactly one year ago, I have made my first post to ‘go out there’ into the RPing-world here on tumblr; and I still am so incredibly happy that I did because there are so many wonderful experiences I made and amazing friends I found, all because of that.

(For those wanting a summary of this post: I just want to talk about my ‘story’ here on tumblr for a bit in this post. Nothing big, just a bit of me blabbing about how happy I am.)

HEY KID, HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO WRITE YOUR ENGLISH ESSAYS COMPLETELY IN CODE? WELL, NOW YOU CAN DO THAT! 

Presenting one of the nerdiest things I’ve ever spent three hours on: 

Fordese. Exactly as seen in Journal 3, but as a font. You too can confuse your work partner, twin brother, and dream demon arch-nemesis by simply typing on the keyboard as normal, no pen needed!

I must thank @picnokinesis and the fics they wrote in code for putting the random inspiration in my mind to do this, ahahah. XD 

The font includes all coded letters from A-Z, both in uppercase and lowercase. (They’re both the same, though- I just figured it wouldn’t hurt to double up.) It has a full set of numbers, and the most common punctuation. Some of the letters are annoyingly close to each other, but it couldn’t easily be helped. 

But hey, if anyone actually uses this and makes a post, please feel free to tag me in it so I can see! And if anyone tries this out and there’s any major issues with it, let me know and I can try to fix it! :D

You can find the font right here!

I keep giggling at the thought of a villain mama trying to raise her daughter to be normal and placing her in a prestigious school but often have her villain side show up, and the teacher who is used to pompous parents totally don’t bat an eye to put her in her place

I feel like if Desmond had Kristoph’s hair, it would have worked just as fine as his bread hair. Maybe better lol…. They also have similar suits and more similarities I can’t quite name for certain bc I haven’t played either game yet ;_;. Poses referenced from Kristoph’s, naturally.

I am now keeping a carton of juice by the side of my bed.
Because that’s the kinda thing a responsible diabetic would do. 
The kind of diabetic who perhaps wouldn’t mind sticking around and seeing the future.

The point is i’m not giving up. 
For a time I thought I was.
But I’m not.

The post no-one was waiting for (but that I’m doing anyway) pt.2

Dearly Beloved,

here we are gathered here today to get through this thing called Men’s Free Program – last group.

Usual warnings apply, this post may become quite long. If you feel offended by anything I write, asks box is there for you.

ISU Feed was horrible, but sadly that’s all we got since fancams are few and far between. For reference (and also because Uncle Kurt says some very interesting things about jumps) CBC broadcast here:
