but this is an interesting duo

So Justice League was an epic fail I don’t even know where to begin.

Men need to stay far far away from Wonder Woman and the Amazons and I thank God everyday we have a female director for her own movie because let me tell you, bikini armor, boob cups, ass shots, boobs shots, sexualized WW every chance they got and from her own team members

Superman “return” is so anticlimactic that only Amy Adams made it somewhat bearable to watch. And it looked so damn obvious the movie makers have a boner for Superman like sure he’s strong but come the fuck on, against all of Justice League? He made them look like children coming into a battlefield.

The villain is cartoonish. Jokes are flat. CGI is meh. Team chemistry is bland (though i liked Superman and Cyborg duo) but the flash, cyborg, and Aquaman by themselves seem interesting.

There are a lot of things to love about these two, the savagery, the pranks, the hugs, the laughs … I got interested in them since that fan meeting back in 2014 where Jimin got on his knees to propose to Namjoon with a red rose but RM refused him because he had to get his parent’s approval first, then in another fan meeting Jimin will put a veil on Namjoon which will make him stand up and hold into Jimin like they are going to walk down the aisle LOL. They are very random and entertaining so I really get happy whenever they do something together. I wish many other ARMYs will grow to love this duo too~

I see a bunch of people concerned about whether or not the new Doctor should have a male or female companion, and i raise you the doctor having like three or four permanent companions. If we are shaking things up with a new Female doctor, how about we shake things up instead of having the same exact tardis duo we’ve had since the beginning of New Who (Amy/Rory is debatable). I mean they have had periods of time where they had kind of a temporary/semi third or fourth companion who comes and goes (usually the girl companion’s love interest) but how about like three companions, from different TIMES or different PLANETS who don’t already know each other and who all stay. Lets watch how they all interact and try to understand each other. Lets see the Doctor having more than one person to lay all of her burdens onto. Why not a woc from the 15th century and like an alien dude or even a teenager or an old retired person? (Bring back captain jack even if its just for his reaction in one episode please). I don’t give a crap which one (if any) ends up being the doctor’s love interest, just give me some other dynamic than a single girl companion from our current era.

10 Must-Watch K-Dramas Of 2017 That You Really Can’t Miss

As the warmer months wither away and we’re greeted with the chill of autumn, there may be more of a desire to stay indoors and snuggle up while watching some K-dramas. This past year has been quite a success in terms of binge-worthy K-dramas, so here’s a look at just 10 of the dramas that we thought would pique your interest!

1. Goblin

“Goblin” was the hit tvN drama that was written by famous writer, Kim Eun Sook. It starred well-seasoned actors, Gong Yoo, Lee Dong Wook, and Kim Go Eun. This script was so unique in that it revolved around a goblin, his bride-to-be, and a grim reaper. There was bromance, comedy, and dramatic elements that were all pieced together so perfectly. It really is a masterpiece of a drama and a definite must-watch!

2. Fight My Way

“Fight For My Way” stars the charming duo Park Seo Jun and Kim Ji Won. It’s a nostalgic K-drama that is set around a group of childhood friends who are dealing with the pains of growing up and being adults. Park Seo Jun plays MMA fighter Go Dong Man, who is best friends with Choi Ae Ra, played by Kim Ji Won. They support each other as best as they can as they try and achieve their dreams.

3. Greatest One-Shot

“Greatest One-Shot,” is a KBS2 variety K-drama with an all-star cast of Yoon Shi Yoon, Lee Se Young, Cha Tae Hyun, Kim Min Jae, Hong Kyung Min, ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo, and even Taeyang’s big brother, Dong Hyun Bae. The story involved a ’90s K-pop icon (Yoon Shi Yoon) who accidentally travels into the future. This drama is a light-hearted drama that will have you laughing and crying. Definitely one that can’t be missed!

4. The Guardians

This was a drama that really came out of nowhere. Starring Kim Young Kwang and Lee Si Young, “The Guardians” is about a group of vigilantes who all have different skills that help them to fight crime. Lead by prosecutor Jang Do Han (Kim Young Kwang), there is one common goal for this group of misfits, which is to bring down the bad guy who had wronged them in the past. It’s a fast-paced K-drama that you will most likely binge-watch without stopping. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

5. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

“Do you like Messi?” This line was even trending on Twitter at one point. “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” is the perfect K-drama to warm up to as winter approaches. Starring Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk, this drama is about first loves and friendship. It’s a heart-warming drama and you will find yourself completely shipping the main leads!

6. Degree of Love

“Degree of Love” is the new SBS drama starring Yang Se Jong and Seo Hyun Jinthat is still currently airing, but is too good to not put on this list. Yang Se Jong plays a gourmet chef named Ohn Jung Sun and Seo Hyun Jin plays a drama writer by the name of Lee Hyun Soo. The two of them are on the road to achieving their dreams, but face a lot of obstacles in their paths that prevent them from dating. Definitely a relatable drama, there’s something so soothing and calming about its production that viewers will appreciate!

7. Suspicious Partner

This successful drama starred Ji Chang Wook as No Ji Wook and Nam Ji Hyun as Eun Bong Hee. They both work in a team of prosecutors, and when Eun Bong Hee is wrongfully accused of murdering her boyfriend, No Ji Wook comes to the rescue. If you don’t mind seeing Ji Chang Wook on the small screen for 16 hours, then this drama comes highly recommended!

8. While You Were Sleeping

“While You Were Sleeping” is the new hit SBS drama starring Suzy and Lee Jong Suk. Suzy’s character Nam Hong Joo is able to dream about events that will happen in the future. Jung Jae Chan (Lee Jong Suk) also has the same ability, but is also able to prevent the dream from coming true. The two embark on a crazy adventure of interpreting their dreams and making sure everything is right in everyone’s lives. It’s an adventure that can’t be missed!

9. Strong Woman Do Bong Soon

This all-star cast of Park Bo Young, Park Hyung Sik, and Ji Soo are sure to put a smile on your face. The story involves a strong female lead named Do Bong Soon (Park Bo Young) who has Herculean super strength. Park Hyung Sik plays Ahn Min Hyuk, the CEO of a game company who falls completely head over heels for her. This rom-com is full of laughs as well as mystery and adorable moments between the two main leads.

10. Because This Is My First Life

The newest drama on this list, but one that can’t be missed is the new tvN drama, “Because This Is My First Life,” starring Lee Min Ki and Jung So Min. Lee Min Ki plays a rational computer designer who is looking for a housemate, while Jung So Min plays a writer who is desperately trying to become a successful script-writer. The two are brought together by chance despite their opposite personalities. This drama is already so promising!

here are a bunch of AMAZING fics I’ve enjoyed and loved reading throughout the month of july. I recommend that you read these great fics in august, if you haven’t already!! also check out the HL Summer Fic Exchange - my fic will be posted soon (hopefully)!

(all fics with a star are my favorites and if there are two stars then it was a favorite favorite)


1. Just a Walk in the Park 124k **

It’s 2015, the first time dinosaurs walked the earth in over 65 million years. The multi-billion dollar company, Twist Corporations, is planning a summer opening for their world changing attraction, “Jurassic Park”.

They take an interest in the history making duo of Dr. Louis Tomlinson, a stubborn paleontologist, and his partner, paleobotanist Dr. Liam Payne, giving them the chance of a lifetime to work for the new theme park. Louis is apprehensive, but Liam has a “gut feeling” that it will change their lives. He isn’t wrong.

Featuring Niall as the top engineer to get the park up and running, Zayn as the raptor expert, and Harry as the grandson of one of the most influential men in the world.

2. Let’s Embrace the Point of No Return 33k

Louis was a whole new scale of beautiful, he was richer than Harry could’ve ever imagined, and he was the most powerful, dominant alpha that Harry had ever come in contact with. The only problem now is that Louis is also Harry’s boss.

Louis believed Harry was an alpha, and had no idea about how he had lied about his status just to get an interview with Louis. He was in too deep now and he couldn’t look back.

Or, Harry is an omega intern at an all alpha company. Louis is his boss. There’s some complications.

3. How Could I Ever Forget 14k

After his boyfriend leaves him for a job in New York, Harry vows to move on with his life. A year later when their best friends announce their engagement, Harry knows he’ll be forced to see Louis again and face the truth he’s been trying his best to hide–even from himself.

Or a Vegas AU where Ziam’s bachelor party turns into drunken karaoke, winning thousands at slots, washing your clothes at the laundromat in your underwear, and making life altering decisions that you can’t remember in the morning.

“She had the same reaction,” Harry smirks, taking the last sip of his tequila. “But after she thought about it, she liked the idea. Eyes got all bright ‘n shit,” he laughs. “A pink guest room.“

“Well, if it’s what ye’ want,” the radio host clinks the rim of his glass against Harry’s. “Then ‘m ‘appy for ye’. Might ‘ave to claim it as me own when I sleep over.”

“Who says you’re invited?”

So like, I had an idea that Zim gets haunted by a malicious spirit but he has no idea what it even is. He’s not accustomed to things like spirits and demons, etc, so it’s odd to him that he sees a weird shadow in the corner of his eye sometimes or shit gets moved around and his base becomes unsafe. 

So he crashes at Dib’s for a while, hoping to get away from whatever weird shit is happenin, and ofc Dib is interested in this cause GHOST?? But the spirit follows Zim over to Dib’s place and it’s attached to Dib at some point. He starts seeing this shit head-on and it freaks him the fuck out. Gaz probably also sees it but…could care less lol

They dabble in paranormal stuff a lot more so they have to figure out how to get rid of it, and I like the idea of them goin on paranormal adventures vwv ~~ I actually have a weird interest in horror, due to having my own weird fear of the dark and what lies in it and would love to make creepy shit one day… Like just put my fears to paper… but yeah!

The Secret of the White Lion

Alternatively Titled: Local Girl Ignores Responsibilities in Favor of Overanalyzing Children’s TV Show

Alright so ever since we were shown this mural, which depicts Voltron fully assembled and a lion off to the side, some people have started discussing the possibility of there being a sixth lion. And since I have nothing better to do with my time (besides my midterms next week whaaaat), I thought I’d try to answer the question: if there is a White Lion, who would pilot it?

Now I don’t want to get too into the whole idea of “how likely is it that this is going to happen” because like? That’s hard to tell. But, I’d say that it at least makes narrative sense for there to be a sixth lion.

What Alfor faces throughout Zarkon’s fall is the very real possibility that the leader of their magic robot lion fighting team could easily end up crossing some sort of line and going too far. Alfor begins to doubt Zarkon’s leadership, and has several arguments with him about his judgment and his and Honerva’s hunger for power. It’s not that big a stretch for Alfor to go from “this dude could try to use Voltron for evil / go rogue / etc.” to “I need to have a back up in case he pulls some shit.”

And a hypothetical sixth lion could logically be that back up. If Alfor built one, the idea was probably for the lion to either be an alternative head for Voltron or just an alternative lion in general, in case any of the other lions were unavailable, so that they could still create Voltron even if someone went missing / ran off / turned evil. 

And there’s a pre-existing precedent for a physical white lion, too:

Richie and Stan friendship hcs

~Stan is known to be seemingly always annoyed with Richie. Constantly rolling his eyes, refusing high fives, and all that jazz.

~But Stan loves his best friend. He will always be there for Richie. Just like Richie will always be there for him.

~They play board games together while they watch ‘Pup Named Scooby Doo’.

~They like Monopoly and Life the best. Richie laughs for twenty minutes because nearly every time they play, Stan’s character ends up with like 7 kids.

~Richie could be losing throughout the whole game and still somehow come out on top. They don’t talk about the ‘Stan flipping the board over’ incident.

~Whenever Richie is 'scared’ he likes to try and jump into Stan’s arms. (Stan never actually let’s him fall, on purpose anyway)

~Richie comes to Stan for most of his problems because that guy always knows what to do and he was his first best friend.

~Stan puts up with his long rants, actually listening to him too.

~He brings Stan tea everytime he comes over to rant. He tries to get him outside his comfort zone by bringing him new flavors each time.

~Stan was the first one he told about his crush on Eddie. And Richie was the first to know about Stan’s crush on Bill.

~They are a dynamic duo!

~“C'mon, Stan we are a dynamic duo! We can be called Bird Boy and Flameboy!”

~“Flameboy?”

~“I panicked!”

~Once they get their crushes, they’re constantly on double dates.

~For Richie’s birthday, Stan drew up a comic book of Richie’s idea, called 'Bird Boy and Flameboy’.

~He spent forever drawing it up and Bill helped him create a storyline.

~All the losers are in it, Eddie is Richie’s sassy love interest who secretly outsmarts them and is actually the villains sidekick, Ben is the brainy butler, Mike is their wise mentor, Beverly is the villain, and Bill is their police officer friend.

~Ben and Mike proof read it.

~Richie sobs his eyes out and there is no use in denying it cause everyone saw.

Fun doodle for my Dance Studio! Sheith AU that I’ve been tossing around since yesterday.
Choreographer/Dancer!Keith and his cameraman/boyfriend!Shiro.  And since it’s all for fun, I gave Shiro a top knot, because I thought his white hair would be cool long and tied up that way.  

PS: I just really wanted to draw Shiro with a top knot since thinking of the au idea, hence this drawing was made.  

Cole Sprouse & Roberto on Betty & Jughead

Although there is trouble with his dad, and the teenager is still without a permanent home, there is some light in Jughead’s life – his budding relationship with Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart). The two shared a kiss in last week’s episode. Betty’s response to the kiss was unexpected as she changed gears, turning her attention to finding Jason Blossom’s car. Jughead did make note of Betty’s response – saying, “Wow, that’s what you were thinking of in the middle of our moment?” – but he didn’t take it as a slight, Cole said.

“I had sort of read it as, well, if Jughead can be a force of clarity in Betty’s life in that moment where she’s sort of hyperventilating and panicking – if his romance with Betty can be the thing that allows her to see clearly, that’s something I think he [would take] pride in,” Cole told Access.

Then Roberto finally shared that he intended to put Betty and Jughead for a while now hehe…he’s a long time Bughead shipper from the comics just like us!

For those fans (like us!) who are already loving this unconventional couple, we’ve got the inside scoop on how Jughead and Betty’s romance came to fruition.

“From the very earliest days [of Riverdale’s development,] I kind of knew I wanted to tell a Jughead-Betty romance because,” Riverdale executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa dished to ET over the phone. “I was rally really taken with the idea that Archie’s best gal friend was Betty and his best guy friend was Jughead and I thought that it would be an interesting way to reframe the love triangle.”

“Archie used to be the only thing that these two characters have in common and now, as their friendship and their relationship develops, Archie is more peripheral to their lives and I thought that was a really interesting thing,” he continued. “And in the comics over the last 75 years, there had been big, big hints that Jughead had fond feelings for Betty, so it felt like we were honoring that tradition as well. 

More from Cole Sprouse and Roberto below! Love reading the actors perspective on their scenes!

We talk with Toby Froud about Netflix's upcoming Dark Crystal prequel!

Yesterday, the faerie community, and indeed all those who love beautiful and fantastical storytelling, received momentous news when Netflix officially announced their upcoming project, slated to begin filming in fall. A prequel series to the beloved 1982 Henson/Froud film, The Dark Crystal, it will run for ten episodes and include state-of-the-art puppet creations from the imaginations of our own friends and Faerie Magazine contributors, Brian and Toby Froud. The series is called The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, and our minds are racing with guesses as to what characters and stories might be included.

The original film, The Dark Crystal, featured a world imagined by renowned fairy artist Brian Froud (conceptual designer) that was a surreally accurate three-dimensional recreation of his artwork. Froud’s imagination combined flawlessly with Jim Henson’s vision and skill, and the film is now considered a fantasy masterpiece. With Jim Henson’s Creature Shop and Brian and his impressively-skilled puppeteer and artist son, Toby, involved in the project, we have no doubt that the project will be a rousing success.

Deputy Editor Grace Nuth was able to give Toby Froud a quick phone call to ask him some questions about the project.

Faerie Magazine: How hard has it been to know this project was happening and not be able to share it?

Toby Froud: We’ve been on this around five weeks or so. When people have asked us “will Dark Crystal ever happen again” and things like that, my mom and I have had to keep quiet, and say “well, possibly,” and things like that.

FM: Way back at the first Faeriecon, your parents were guests, and announced the possibility of another feature film, so this has been a long time coming.

TF: It has! The idea of doing a sequel has been kicking around for twelve years or so. They did the Power of the Dark Crystal stuff for this big sequel feature, and it never really got off the ground. But then after the resurgence from the Hensons doing all of these competitions, [ex: Jim  Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge on SyFy] and having the fan base be what it is today, it just so happened that they caught the idea doing of a prequel, using all of the writing and lore of the world that now exists in recent years. Netflix said yes, so it became this idea that the Hensons would think in a different way, a prequel instead of a sequel. And now here we are.

FM: Were you and your father directly approached by Netflix, or by the Hensons?

TF: By the Hensons. It’s a Henson-Netflix production. We are a part of the Hensons’ development to build the creatures and world under management of Netflix.

FM: You and your father have worked together in creative capacities informally throughout your life. Was the creation of “Granny” for Lessons Learned the first time you had him create a creature, and you then translated it into a three dimensional puppet?

TF: It was, for a film together. We certainly have done a lot of puppets…Ignatz [Toby’s Froudian puppet, seen at many fairy events like Faeriecon] was my father’s design, and my creation. But Granny was our coming together for film.

FM: Do you anticipate the creations on this Dark Crystal project happening similarly, with him creating the concepts and you interpreting those concepts in three dimensional puppets, or do you and your father plan to work together to create the concepts as well?

TF: We are doing both. What’s very interesting is I am working alongside my father right now in the conceptual designs. I am translating his designs still as well, into three dimensional forms. What is bigger and is the amazing part is the translation of them into puppets. My father and I are giving them these characters; we are developing these ideas with the Hensons…and Louis Leterrier, and Lisa Henson and my father and I are figuring this out, creating this visual. Then the team of the Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, this amazing team, are creating the puppets for us.

FM: Has work already begun on pre-production?

TF: I am in the studios in L.A.! I’m working with them on a daily basis, designing and also fabricating with them. Then my father is in England, and he is designing from there. So work has begun fast and furious!

FM: Of course you can’t tell us anything about new creations, but what is your favorite type of creature in the world of the original Dark Crystal film? Are there any that you are especially eager to bring to life?

TF: Ooh…That is a tough question. I love them in different ways: To revisit all of the Skeksis…To be able to build a Mystic again, things like that. To be able to envision in the new world with new technology and modern times, bringing these creatures up to date in certain ways. I am so excited to see Aughra on screen as well. So that sort of thing is what I can’t wait for. I’m excited to see the new creatures of the world and also the expansion of the world itself. And then we are revisiting certain things of the old world too…that’s what I’m excited for.

FM: Will your mother be assisting on this project as well, or just a father/son duo?

TF: Wendy is certainly consulting on this, especially with the Gelflings, because she did Jen and Kira originally. So I’m working closely with her and also my father. But she was the sculptural designer for those, and so she’s invaluable to our new process.

FM: How does it feel creating a large-scale work that your young son can grow up watching, just as you watched Dark Crystal and Labyrinth growing up?

TF: It’s…I mean it’s amazing. Beyond amazing. This project is very interesting because it’s a legacy. It’s a dream to do this. What is fascinating is that I am the same age my father was when he started The Dark Crystal. So what’s really interesting is that that’s coming to light. It’s wonderful that I get to work with him and the Hensons on this thing. It’s far more than just another project. And yes, to continue that, and to have my son grow up and see this project eventually. It’ll be interesting.

There’s a lot of pressure from fans and from the world. We’re trying. And what will be wonderful is actually the new: the new ways, new look, new feel. The director coming in and putting his vision into this, and the producing team, and Netflix. It’s quite an interesting and wonderful marriage. I think it will benefit, in a lot of ways. I’m excited to see what director Louis Leterrier does: bringing the camera to life in new ways I think the audience will really enjoy.

Netflix is an amazing juggernaut of a company that has great creative taste in what they’re providing the world, and things to come. It’s brilliant. A very clever match.
