I can’t help but think that Tony, in his younger years, went through a phase where he developed a British accent. All the time he spent with Peggy and Jarvis, he just sort of took on and didn’t even realize that his accent had changed. It happens as well because I find that if I stay around or watch someone with an accent different to mine, I begin to take it on little by little. 

Can you just imagine little Tony with a British accent and Peggy and Jarvis stare at him, surprised while Ana goes, ‘I knew this would happen.’ 

Then as he grows up and moves away, he slowly loses it until it’s back to the way it was before. But there are still some words that he says where the accent is still there but no one comments on it as they assume he just stayed aboard for a few years. 

Charlie Brooker on San Junipero

EW: You could have done this same story with any kind of couple. What made two women the best choice?
It was a heterosexual couple when I first put the story down. And then I thought, “Well, what if it wasn’t?” And I think it gives it an extra resonance because they couldn’t have legally got married in 1987, so we’re gifting them that in this world, in this story of second chances. And that added an extra layer to the whole subtext about reliving your life and exploring things you didn’t have a chance to do.

That deliberate-looking shot of the plane flying in the background at the beach near the the end — does that mean you can travel to other places and not just stay in ’80s dance club heaven?
You know what? I never thought of that! The idea is there’s almost different channels for decades you can select to enter in the same environment. So going to another place would be like in Grand Theft Auto going from Los Santos in GTA V to San Andreas. But I dare say there would be a nostalgic version of Britain and Spain and New York. So now, I’ve talked myself around to say: Yes, that’s what that plane is there to do!

Can you talk about the credits? The Belinda Carlisle song adds so much, not just to the ending but to everything you’ve seen before it.
I know, and I’m praying people don’t just stop the episode as soon as they see the first credit, because it unlocks [the rest of the story]. I started writing the script and I put together a Spotify playlist of music from 1987. I go running every so often and that song came on while I was jogging I was like, “Well, that’s gotta go in.” And that basically gave me the ending scene. So one of the first things we did is check if we could clear this song [for use in the episode] and I would have been absolutely distraught if we couldn’t have done it. It’s something we’ve done in previous episodes, where we have story continuing to unfold throughout the end credits, but it’s the only time we do it in this season. It feels like an nice way of adding an extra coda. It’s also a wry joke in a way, that heaven is literally a place on earth, as we reveal the absolute cold reality of what’s going on. Hopefully it leaves people with a smile on their face, which is an alien experience after watching Black Mirror.

EW Interview with Black Mirror Showrunner Charlie Brooker on Season 3

Like I’m definitely certain on the idea that Disney had a change of heart between Seasons 1 and 2.

Think about it:

Season 1 had very few hints at Trans Marco that could easily be ignored or passed off as one-off gags.

Season 2 comes out of the gate swinging with Marco spending an episode trying to get out of a closet, proclaiming he’d like to be Queen, and having two dysphoria metaphors. Not to mention that Miss Henious is actually using the term “Princess Marco” now and Marco’s being openly referred to as a Princess.

Season 1 took 2 years to produced, and the show premiered at SDCC 2014.

Season 2 was ordered in February 2015, before the show even aired.

What major event regarding LGBT representation in children’s media happened between July 2014 and February 2015 that would have helped persuade Disney to be more lenient with the subject?

So this is subject to change but, if I had to choose a favorite planet right now, it’d be Neptune. Neptune is seen as a “higher” version of Venus. Although Neptune has its cons (which can quite obnoxious,) I feel like Neptune is better than Venus in a lot of ways.

There is a shallowness in Venus that severely contrasts the deepness found in Neptune. This can be found in love, beauty, and comfort.

Venus focuses on the appealing, fun, beautiful kind of love that is usually gained during the youthful stages of a relationship while Neptune is focused on the unique, ethereal, deep kind of love that is usually gained during the older, aging stages of a relationship. With Venus, there is no pain. With Neptune, there is.

With comfort, Venus seeks comfort through materialistic and shallow means. Eating food to fill the physical void in you. Putting on a shade of lipstick to get a glimpse from the boy you like in class. Neptune seeks comfort that doesn’t take any shape or form. Taking drugs to escape the deep, painful thoughts you’ve had since childhood. Dreaming in your sleep to find your innermost, subconscious feelings. The void within is misunderstood, deep, and seemingly endless.

With beauty, Venus seeks the kind of beauty that catches the eye. With beauty, Neptune seeks the kind of beauty that catches the heart.

anonymous asked:

How do I know of my third eye is open? I can literally make my center forehead tingle (almost feels like physical pressure) on command and I can see auras pretty easily (after only like 30 minutes of meditation)

That tingling sensation is, as far as I know, a sign that your third eye is open, or trying to open. I think being able to see auras and physical signs of energy is a “symptom” of the third eye opening as well.

[5 Definitive Signs Your Third Eye Is Opening]

It seems if your third eye is open/ing, you are more prone to headaches, you will feel a slight pressure or other sensations where your third eye is located, your insight and perception are increased, and even how you perceive light is changed.

I once had a tip from someone - close your eyes and try to direct your eyes beneath your lids towards the center point on your head, where the third eye would be. So basically, with your eyes closed, look up towards your forehead. Visualize a triangle connecting your two regular eyes, with the top point of the triangle touching where the third eye would be. (This happens naturally hen I do it now, lol.) Don’t try to force the third eye open, but just focus on that area with the intent of your third eye opening. It may take some time, as in numerous sessions. And once it is opened, it cannot be completely closed again, so just be wary of that and what it might mean.

That is the one way I was taught how to do it. There are obviously other ways as well, which I’m trying to look up for you. Meditation seems like a pretty common method. Besides that being mentioned over and over, I am having difficulties finding anything that seems plausible.

While doing so I found this article: [Awakening The Third Eye – Be Careful What You Wish For]. 

I hope that helps you!

Trump’s Gettysburg Address

“Gettysburg, PA: Today, in historic Gettysburg, PA, Donald J. Trump presented a game-changing plan for his first 100 days in office. This revolutionary “Contract with the American Voter” will ensure that America’s economy is revitalized and citizens are protected.

“I’m not a politician, and have never wanted to be one. But when I saw the trouble our country was in, I knew I couldn’t stand by and watch any longer. Our country has been so good to me, I love our country, I felt I had to act,” said Mr. Trump in his address.

“Change has to come from outside this broken system. The fact that the Washington establishment has tried so hard to stop our campaign is only more proof that our campaign represents the kind of change that only arrives once in a lifetime,” he continued.

“I am asking the American people to rise above the noise and the clutter of our broken politics, and to embrace that great faith and optimism that has always been the central ingredient in the American character. I am asking you to dream big.

“What follows is my 100-day action plan to Make America Great Again. It is a contract between Donald J. Trump and the American voter – and begins with restoring honesty, accountability and change to Washington,” he concluded.


“Therefore, on the first day of my term of office, my administration will immediately pursue the following six measures to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC:

FIRST, propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress;

SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health);

THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated;

FOURTH, a 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service;

FIFTH, a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government;

SIXTH, a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.

On the same day, I will begin taking the following seven actions to protect American workers:

FIRST, I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205

SECOND, I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership

THIRD, I will direct my Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator

FOURTH, I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately

FIFTH, I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.

SIXTH, lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward

SEVENTH, cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure. Additionally, on the first day, I will take the following five actions to restore security and the constitutional rule of law:

FIRST, cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama

SECOND, begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States

THIRD, cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities

FOURTH, begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back

FIFTH, suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.

Next, I will work with Congress to introduce the following broader legislative measures and fight for their passage within the first 100 days of my Administration:

1. Middle Class Tax Relief And Simplification Act. An economic plan designed to grow the economy 4% per year and create at least 25 million new jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification, in combination with trade reform, regulatory relief, and lifting the restrictions on American energy. The largest tax reductions are for the middle class. A middle-class family with 2 children will get a 35% tax cut. The current number of brackets will be reduced from 7 to 3, and tax forms will likewise be greatly simplified. The business rate will be lowered from 35 to 15 percent, and the trillions of dollars of American corporate money overseas can now be brought back at a 10 percent rate.

2. End The Offshoring Act Establishes tariffs to discourage companies from laying off their workers in order to relocate in other countries and ship their products back to the U.S. tax-free.

3. American Energy & Infrastructure Act. Leverages public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over 10 years. It is revenue neutral.

4. School Choice And Education Opportunity Act. Redirects education dollars to gives parents the right to send their kid to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice. Ends common core, brings education supervision to local communities. It expands vocational and technical education, and make 2 and 4-year college more affordable.

5. Repeal and Replace Obamacare Act. Fully repeals Obamacare and replaces it with Health Savings Accounts, the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, and lets states manage Medicaid funds. Reforms will also include cutting the red tape at the FDA: there are over 4,000 drugs awaiting approval, and we especially want to speed the approval of life-saving medications.

6. Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act. Allows Americans to deduct childcare and elder care from their taxes, incentivizes employers to provide on-site childcare services, and creates tax-free Dependent Care Savings Accounts for both young and elderly dependents, with matching contributions for low-income families.

7. End Illegal Immigration Act Fully-funds the construction of a wall on our southern border with the full understanding that the country Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such wall; establishes a 2-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. after a previous deportation, and a 5-year mandatory minimum for illegally re-entering for those with felony convictions, multiple misdemeanor convictions or two or more prior deportations; also reforms visa rules to enhance penalties for overstaying and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first.

8. Restoring Community Safety Act. Reduces surging crime, drugs and violence by creating a Task Force On Violent Crime and increasing funding for programs that train and assist local police; increases resources for federal law enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors to dismantle criminal gangs and put violent offenders behind bars.

9. Restoring National Security Act. Rebuilds our military by eliminating the defense sequester and expanding military investment; provides Veterans with the ability to receive public VA treatment or attend the private doctor of their choice; protects our vital infrastructure from cyber-attack; establishes new screening procedures for immigration to ensure those who are admitted to our country support our people and our values

10. Clean up Corruption in Washington Act. Enacts new ethics reforms to Drain the Swamp and reduce the corrupting influence of special interests on our politics.

On November 8th, Americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our economy, security to our communities, and honesty to our government.

This is my pledge to you.

And if we follow these steps, we will once more have a government of, by and for the people.”

anonymous asked:

So I just started college a couple months ago and came out to my parents via Skype. I mentioned that I had changed my name and they immediately told me, "Don't tell us, it's fine that you're trans but it's too much to take that you want to change your name because the story of [deadname] means so much to our family." I was not thinking too clearly at the time and agreed not to tell them my new name until they were ready for it. A month later they haven't asked and still deadname me. Any advice?

Kii says:

Change your name on Skype, as well as any other social media that they can see. That way, they can’t say that they don’t know what your preferred name is.

An Australian Summer Part 3/3 (Gabe Brown story)

**warning - a little smutty in the middle**.

When they returned to the motel Matt could see the little glances Megan and Gabe kept giving each other and he could tell that the vibe between the two of them had changed.

“I hope you two aren’t getting too attached” he cautioned as he entered the motel room, pausing to add, “Gabey we’re heading home in 2 weeks, what are you going to do when we have to leave?”.

Staying outside Gabe pulled Megan to him and hugged her tightly “ignore him, he’s just bitter because things didn’t work out with Sarah”.

Megan pulled back a little, “he has a point though Gabe… I mean what exactly are we doing here? Is this just fun…? a summer fling…? or do you want it to be more than that?”.

“Meggy… I’m not really the kind of guy who gets involved with someone just for fun… you know that” Gabe replied softly.

Megan was close to tears. “I did think about this when we first started spending time together. I told myself not to fall for you, but… I couldn’t help it…” she said dropping her head. “I’d never ask you to leave your family Gabey, but what’s the alternative? Me leaving my family? I don’t know if I could do that either. We’ve only known each other for 2 weeks!”.

“Could you come to Alaska for a holiday?” Gabe asked hopefully. “Just for a month? Or even a couple of weeks? Just so we have more time to see where this is going?”.

“I don’t really get any more major holidays until mid year, your summer, and I’m guessing you’re probably going to be pretty busy filming then, I’d only be in the way” Megan said, tears starting to roll down her face.

“Well it’s not ideal… we’d have a camera crew following our every move - not my favourite thing in the world…” Gabe replied.

Megan sighed, “The next option is Christmas holidays, this time next year. That’s a whole year Gabe! I can’t ask you to wait that long for something that may or may not have a future”.

He pulled her back to him and wrapped his arms around her tightly, “I don’t care if it takes a year, Meg, I’ll be there waiting for you” he said burying his face in her long hair.

“And then what Gabe…? I come to Alaska, we fall in love and at the end of the month we’re right back here again except it’s even harder to say goodbye? We’d just be delaying the inevitable”.

Megan sighed, and wiped her eyes. She was starting to understand how Sarah must have felt when she ended things with Matt because here she was doing the same thing to Gabe even though she cared about him more than she was ready to admit.

“I should probably be getting home anyway…”.

Gabe didn’t want to let her go but didn’t know how to make her stay.

“Will I still see you tomorrow?” he asked gently.

Megan nodded and turned to head towards her car.

“You’ll call me when you get home?” he called after her.

She turned back to him and smiled, “I always do” she said softly, and with a little wave goodbye she got into her car.

Gabe stormed inside the motel room. He rarely got angry, especially at Matt. Gabe was usually the peacemaker, but this time he felt like he was going to explode.

“What the hell Matt!” he yelled as soon as he closed the door, “why would you say that to her?”.

“What are you talking about man?” Matt replied a little confused.

“you told Megan that we shouldn’t get involved!” Gabe shouted.

“Well that’s the truth bro, I’m just trying to look out for you man” Matt said calmly, ignoring his brother’s anger.

“Just because things didn’t work out for you and Sarah doesn’t mean they can’t work out for me and Megan! What if she turns out to be the one Matt? The love of my life, and you scare her off before things even begin?”

“You’ve got to be kidding me” Matt scoffed, “Literally the first girl you speak to after stepping off the plane is going to be the love of your life? Do you know how stupid that sounds! I guess it’s fate or something huh? Gees you’ve been spending too much time around Noah dude”.

Gabe couldn’t believe what he was hearing. “You’re my big brother Matt, you’re supposed to be supportive. If I want a lecture on all the ways it could go wrong I’ll call Bam. I’m outta here… don’t wait up”.

Gabe turned and left the motel and headed for the taxi rank down the street. He’d just gotten in a cab when his phone rang.

“Meg?” He answered hopefully.

“Hey Gabey” her sweet voice came through the phone, “I’m home… hey I’m sorry I got so upset back there. Can we just forget it for now and enjoy the rest of your holiday? We can deal with you leaving when you’re actually leaving.”

Gabe smiled into the phone “that sounds like a good plan to me sweetheart… I’ll see you soon”.

“Soon?” Megan questioned “you mean in the morning?” she corrected.

“No, I mean in about 10 minutes” Gabe replied, “I’m in a cab on my way to your place right now. I couldn’t let things end like that. I hope that’s ok?”

Megan panicked “oh my god… Gabe’s coming here…. in 10 minutes” she said to herself. A million thoughts started rushing through her head: Should she shower? tidy up? Which room would be more important? The living room? The bedroom? Oh god what if they end up in the bedroom? Maybe the shower is more important after all…

“Meg…? Are you still there?"Gabe’s voice on the phone broke her train of thought, "It’s ok that I come over right? I can turn around if you don’t want me to come?”

“sorry, yes I’m here” she said, “and yes come over, I’ll see you soon”.

Megan hung up the phone and made a mad dash around her house hiding the worst of the mess. She then jumped in the shower to quickly freshen up. She was barely finished getting dressed when she heard Gabe knock on the door. She opened the door and smiled at him.

“I’m not going to give up on us that easily” he said in his deep voice as he reached out and gently stroked her cheek.

Megan stroked his face with both hands and pulled his face to hers, eager to taste his kiss again. Gabe slid his hand behind her head and kissed her passionately. They stumbled inside the house, not wanting to let each other go, and collapsed onto the couch. Megan ran her hands over his muscular chest and up into his soft curly hair. She encouraged him as his hands began to roam her body as well. She could feel his desire for her building and she knew that she wanted him more than anything.

“Should we move this to the bedroom?” she whispered in his ear as his kisses trailed down her neck and across her shoulder.

He paused for a moment and looked into her eyes, “Is that what you want?” he asked with a serious tone.

Megan giggled a little, surprised at his response. “Well is it what YOU want?” she asked back.

Gabe lifted himself off her and sat up and pulled Megan up as well. He took her hands in his and still in his most serious voice replied, “Yes sweetheart, I do want to be with you, very much, but I don’t want to pressure you… I mean, this is not why I came here tonight”.

Megan took his face in her hands and kissed him softly on the lips, “I know that Gabe… and if anything, it makes me want you even more”.

Gabe moaned with desire and wrapped his arms around her lifting her off the couch as he stood up. She wrapped her legs around his waist and her arms around his neck and kissed him again as he carried her to the bedroom as though she weighed nothing at all.

He was the most attentive lover she’d ever known. He took his time working his way over her body, taking his cues from her little whimpers and moans. By the time he entered her she was already on the brink of climaxing. She gripped his back as he drove into her, unable to keep her pleasure quiet. Her moans urged him on and just as she reached her peak she felt him explode inside her. He leaned down and kissed her gently as they both came down from the high.

As they lay on the bed catching their breath Gabe looked at her with a cheeky grin. “Earlier you said you’d thought about what it would be like to kiss me… did you ever think about what that would be like?”

Megan blushed thinking of all the Gabe smut stories she’d read online and making a mental note not to let Gabe anywhere near her phone.Her hesitation to respond gave her away.

“Oh my god you have haven’t you!” he exclaimed.

She blushed even harder, unsure if he was embarassed, shocked, flattered or all of the above.

“Shh you talk too much” she said with a cheeky smile, rolling on top of him so that she straddled him, pinning him down with another kiss.

The final two weeks passed quickly and before they knew it they were standing at the airport preparing to say goodbye.

“We can make this work Meg” Gabe said, wiping her tear stained cheeks. “We can write and you can come visit me next year and…”

“Gabe… ”, Meg cut him off, “how will you even find my letters amongst all of the fan mail? I know it’s not what you want to hear, but maybe it would be best if we just end things now… we’ve had a beautiful summer together but maybe now it’s time for us to both move on…”.

“That’s not what I want, and I know that’s not what you want either Meg…” Gabe replied “I already told you, I’m not giving up on us that easily”.

Megan shook her head and smiled, he could be so stubborn sometimes! “Ok, what about a compromise…” she offered, “we end it now and we both try and move on. If in 11 months you are still single and you are still interested, write me a letter. If I’m still single and still interested when I get your letter I’ll book a flight to Alaska. Deal?”.

He grinned at her, knowing she’d come around, “ok it’s a deal, but you may as well book your flights right now because I won’t be able to move on”.

Before she could argue he pulled her close and held her tightly. He could feel her melting into his arms and he smiled knowing that she wouldn’t be able to move on either. With one last sweet kiss they said goodbye and he disappeared through the airport.

The end.

so what is The Princess Saves Herself?

Okay this is another awesome awesome book. The Princess Saves Herself in This One is a book of poetry, mostly personal, by the amazing @ladybookmad aka Amanda Lovelace.




You’re gonna read it really hella fast. I think I read it all in 20 minutes. It’s rather short and it’s SO DAMN POWERFUL. I cried. I had to put it down and just sit for a second and breathe cuz she stunned me with the intensity. Like, I can’t praise it enough.

There are 4 parts. The first 3 are about her life, the last is advice, BEAUTIFUL advice to us.

Men and women should read it. It should be required reading in school. I honestly think this would’ve changed my life if I had picked it up in middle school and would’ve helped me so much.

As of right now you can get it on Amazon, and soon it’s gonna be published and in hardcover with more poems. I’ve got the self published version and plan to get the new version. And right now, if you take an autumn photo with the book she’ll send you a signed bookplate for FREE.

I can’t praise this book enough. Rereading the poems online still move me even though I’ve read a few of them like 8 times. It’s amazing. PLEASE GO GET IT AND READ IT YOU WON’T REGRET IT AT ALL!!!

Trigger warnings: rape, abuse, eating disorders, self-harming.

Also I totally just reread the whole of it while making sure I got the triggers right because I got pulled in and yes, I teared up again.

kajuned  asked:

You said Raphael is your gender fluid rainbow baby. What about Lucifer? I know he does it to manipulate his vessels but he seems to enjoy taking the guise of a woman in a night gown. Maybe all four of the archangels are gender fluid. I can easily imagine Gabriel doing kinky stuff while wearing a woman's body. Michael too. Maybe I should write about that...

It’s canon that the angels don’t have a gender, but I like to assume they do by studying their history with picking vessels. It’s all about how comfortable an angel feels whilst wearing a vessel. There are lots of differences between the male and female body, and if you leave Heaven to walk the Earth, you’re going to have to stick with it for a while.

I believe Raphael is genderfluid because they had no issue with changing from male to female. But you can also tell by their behavior that they were less alpha like their other brothers.

Lucifer has been picking male over female vessels to walk the Earth, as does Michael. It’s being said that Gabriel has been wearing his vessel for centuries, so it’s clear that he’s comfortable with his pretty looks.

When you’re genderfluid, you not only feel like a mix of both genders, but some days you might feel comfortable being a boy over a girl or vice versa. Luci, Mikey and Gabe have only been wearing dudes to prom so far.
