campaign cover

anonymous asked:

Is there any that you could get all the proof that the boys are stuck with Simon/Syco/management into one post? One of my friends was asking and all the information is so scattered all over the fandom.

i have a bunch of posts linked on my babygate masterpost page:

why is babygate happening in the first place (the bts war with syco/sony/1d)?

previous clashes with management/a close look at louis and harry fighting against their team in 2014

masterpost with links about contracts

another post with links about contracts

morals clause/image clause and closeting

sample AGT contract (likely very similar to what the boys had to sign on the x-factor)

here’s a relevant excerpt about how the producers get complete control over your image:

the smear campaign against one direction: a timeline

simon jones and dan wootton and 1d

speculation about simon and why louis seems to take the brunt of the smear campaign bullshit

simon created his own babygate years ago and is also in the closet

more eerie parallels between louis and simon’s babygates

and then the lemon tree analogy is definitely worth reading.

phillip phillips: a case study

gigantic masterpost talking about other musicians/artists who were closeted or abused by their label/mgmt company

my entire kesha tag (and this post in particular that also highlights george michael and prince)

my ‘smear campaign’ tag is also worth a look if you want to see how they’re still trashing louis in the press (particularly during the arrest incident)

and oh yeah my flopsy continues to flop tag because louis’ current team has done jack shit to actually promote him.

i made another #relatable enamel pin set haha

i’m titling it the “art student starter pack” 

my favorite is the offbrand micron

Prompt- lena is running for president and she meets kara on the campaign trail

“Ponytail” Kara jerked to attention, “Lena Luthor will be in National City for her Presidency campaign. You’re covering it.”

“What?”

“Did I stutter?” Kara adjusted her glasses shaking her head. Snapper had never given her anything so high profile before, it was just a shock. “Great. Don’t screw it up.”

//

“Sorry. Excuse me. I’m sorry.” Kara shuffled sideways through the row towards an empty seat in the middle. Clutching her purse to her side trying not to hit anyone in the face. Slipping into the seat, Kara dropped her purse between her feet rummaging for her notepad and pen.

Kara looked around the room as a man at the mic thanked everyone for attending and made Lena’s introduction. It was a small venue, a bit bigger than a school gymnasium, but not by much. There was press scattered throughout the room, but mostly it was women and young adults that filled the seats. A few held hand made signs of support, calling people to vote for Lena as president.

The clicking of heels on the stage brought Kara’s attention back to the stage. She was well versed on Lena’s platform, she had been paying attention to the poles, and the interviews, and generally staying informed, but she had never seen the woman in person. The cameras certainly didn’t do her justice.

//

Lena crossed the stage, as she had done a hundred times before. Ignoring the flashes of cameras and the random shouting Lena smiled into the crowd, thanking everyone once again for coming. The floor was immediately opened to questions from the public. Not all were relevant or profound but Lena answered each one as they were the most important question. Finally at her time signal, she opened the floor to the press.

The first to jump up from her seat was a tall blonde. Hair tied back in a ponytail, wearing a yellow sundress, and thick rimmed glasses.

“Hi Ms. Luthor, Kara Danvers from CatCo magazine.” Lena gave a smile of support as the young woman stumbled over her question. She was not the typical image of the female reporter Lena saw on the campaign trail. She was the exact opposite. Most women of the press she saw took on the same serious hard looks as the men. Kara Danvers however, stood among the sea of black like a ray of sunshine.

A snicker brought Lena’s attention back. She could tell Kara was nervous but she had still asked a relevant and important question. How did she plan to support (financially or otherwise) for her initiative to keep more young girls interested in STEM throughout their academics? As a woman that had built most of her career off a background in science, it was a cause dear to her heart. As she spoke she noticed the woman’s brows furrowing as she scribbled. Without realizing it Lena had started to move up on her toes, as if the motion would somehow let her see what was being written down so frantically.

As Lena made her way through the rest of the questions her eyes kept drifting to the reporter. Watching her as Kara watched other reporters ask their questions before scribbling down Lena’s answers. As the time slot came to an end, Lena gracefully made her exit, listening to her closer tell the audience that Ms. Luthor would be back on the floor in a minute to mingle and introduce herself. After a quick drink of water to prepare herself for the next hour of chatting Lena went back out to say more personal hello’s to those who came to show their support.

Immediately pulled in by a group of young women looking to get a photo, Lena looked away from Kara to smile at the camera. When she looked back at the chairs they were empty. Determined not to be bothered by the quick exit Lena continued making her rounds, nodding politely at suggestions offered, smiling for photos, and answering questions that didn’t have the opportunity to be heard when she was on stage. Catching a glimpse of yellow Lena turned mid photo.

“I’m sorry.” Lena smiled again for the camera before placing her hand on the person’s back. “If you’ll excuse me.” Lena departed before she heard groans of disappointment. Her eyes narrowing in on the reporter that was currently talking to a young man that had come out to hear her talk.

“Hello” Lena smiled at the young man before turning slightly to Kara. “Sorry, I interrupted… please continue.”

“No no Ms. Luthor, Eli here just finished answering my question on why he believes you have so many young people here today.” Kara smiled brightly as the young man took his cue to leave.

“I hope you won’t be using that as your code for LGBT” Lena’s lifted her eyebrow as she saw the realization flash across Kara’s face as she quickly took in the group again, suddenly seeing all the Pride paraphernalia she had missed before. “Apparently everyone here but you already knows my little secret.”

“I didn’t-“

“It’s ok, I came out of the closet long before I ever thought of running for president. But it would make a nice touch don’t you think? First lesbian president.”

“Yes it would!” 
Feeling like she poked enough fun at Kara, Lena decided to switch topics.“You didn’t seem impressed by my answers today Ms. Danvers.”

“I’m not sure if I was.” Lena was used to the doubt. She had been stuck with it ever since she was adopted and took on the Luthor name.

“Why is that exactly?”

“Your views. They are wonderful. But I feel that you are optimistic. That you will not be able to make them happen as easily as you think they will.”

“One thing I have learned Ms.Danvers-“

“Kara, please.”

“One thing I have learned, Kara” Lena smiled as the name rolled off her tongue. “Is that things rarely come easy.”

Crossing her arms Lena continued when she saw Kara’s eyes soften. “I just want to make a difference, you understand that?”

“Yeah…”

Lena finally broke eye contact as she saw Jess motioning off to the side.  “I do have a question for you though Ms. Luthor-“

“Lena.”

“Lena.”

“Unfortunately Kara. I have to keep making rounds. But…how about I take you out to dinner?” Lena smirked, lightly biting down her bottom lip. “And you can ask me anything you want.” Lena signalled Jess to approach.

“Jess, can you give Kara my card? And write my personal number on it please.” Lena mouth twitched as she watched Kara’s lips fall open slightly in surprise. “I hope this isn’t the last time we talk.”

Kara took the card from Jess was she watched Lena walk away smiling to a couple she moved towards. “I hope not either.”

I USED “SERIAL KILLER” EARLIER TODAY PARTIALLY FOR COMEDIC EFFECT AND PARTIALLY TO ILLUSTRATE A SPECIFIC TYPE OF PERSONALITY, BUT FOR CLARITY, “SERIAL KILLER” GENERALLY REFERS TO SOMEONE WHO KILLS AT LEAST THREE PEOPLE OVER THE COURSE OF MORE THAN A MONTH, WITH A COOLDOWN PERIOD IN BETWEEN KILLS MARKING THEM AS SEPARATE CRIMES. 

THIS ISN’T TO BE CONFUSED WITH A SPREE KILLER, WHICH IS SOMEONE WHO KILLS SEVERAL PEOPLE IN QUICK SUCCESSION, FOR EXAMPLE, MASS SHOOTINGS ARE SPREE KILLINGS

IT’S ALSO NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH “MASS-MURDERER,” WHICH IS A SORT OF CATCH-ALL FOR ANYNE WHO KILLS A LOT OF PEOPLE EITHER IN A SINGLE ACTION OR AN ONGOING CAMPAIGN. THIS WOULD COVER MOST MASS SHOOTINGS AND BOMBINGS AND ALL GENOCIDES. THIS PROBABLY IS THE MORE ACCURATE TERM FOR PEOPLE LIKE ANDREW JACKSON, ADOLF HITLER, JOSEF STALIN, ETC.

THAT BEING SAID I STILL STAND BY MY STATEMENT THAT ANDRWE JACKSON IS BOTH A MASS-MURDERER AND A SERIAL KILLER, SINCE HE ALSO PERSONALLY KILLED MANY PEOPLE IN PERSON ON MANY SEPARATE OCCASIONS, IT WASN’T JUST IN MILITARY SERVICE OR ORDERS GIVEN AS PRESIDENT, HE JUST STRAIGHT-UP LIKED MURDERING AND DID IT PRETTY MUCH WHENEVER HE GOT THE CHANCE TO

Ye Magick Shoppe for 5E

By Dracomortua:

Your players’ ship arrives at the docks at last. They go up to the first stevedore or whombler they see and say: ‘Excuse me there, hard working fellow - but where is the local magic shop?’:

Suddenly this all takes a sharp turn and the DM goes 'Out Of Character’: “What? Magic shop?” You kindly explain that there isn’t such a thing. Says so right there in the DMG, see? It is impossible for one to exist in a 5e D&D world. Period.

Your sassy players do not give up. Someone points out such shops exist here in reality on Earth, despite having no provable magic. There are even different kinds (lots sell incense and religious stuff, some selling bits o’ stone, people may want to stare at your crystal balls and it just goes wild from there). They point out a variant human’s feat can give any commoner a bunch of cantrips and one first level spell. So why doesn’t anyone own anything enchanted?

This guide gives you RaW self-defense. You can have as many magic shops as you like without breaking any rules. The trick is to put items in them that are interesting, fun and even useful despite the fact that almost nothing is an uncommon or rare magic item.

Anyways there’s this dissonance regarding Zayn that I can’t quite understand. For some of his stans, he’s lazy and not doing enough when he’s clearly been working his lil butt off for more than two years now. We got 7 music videos, 24 songs (+ remixes), amazing collabs, a book, fashion campaigns, countless of magazine covers. People who say that Zayn hasn’t been focusing on his career are obviously not in touch with reality; he’s been working so hard. A career can be layered and just because some people can’t multitask doesn’t mean Zayn can’t :). Not to mention all the stuff Zayn constantly does to cater to his fanbase and keep us happy. And then you’ve got the press! Some media outlets are insistent on pressing this notion that Zayn is fake deep, that he takes himself too seriously, that he’s trying to give himself an image that’s just not his. Which quite frankly hilarious, this is the same dude who has no qualms about sharing minion memes, posted a dubmash of himself imitating Olaf from Frozen, likes self-deprecating jokes on twitter  frequently and is generally a huge nerdass dork. Just cuz he takes his work seriously and wants to stay authentic to what he loves doesn’t make him fake deep or pompous. 

a part of me thinks that post s3 anne and aramis will try very much to avoid acting suspiciously in public but i know that it’s more likely they’ll be like the saperstein twins from parks and rec singing don’t be suspicious
