             The Ladies of Shipwrecked Present: Pin-Up Gotham Sirens

Sinead, Sarah, and MK wanted to do vintage pin-up versions of the Gotham Sirens for a fun and simple project in between our bigger things. Thanks to our photographer extraordinaire David Cater and his lovely wife Genevieve for helping us bring Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn to life in this way! Hope you enjoy our shots, and Happy Valentine’s Day, puddin’!

the woman, busy. shuffling hands passing dishes like magicians from cabinet to table. the muffled laughter of a shared joke that doesn’t pass outside the kitchen door. inside here is equal footing and slippery slopes both, grandmother clucks and takes the bowl because you’re stirring wrong and there should be more salt don’t you know; in-law pinches lips about full-fat milk pour. but here, land untouched by men, there is a warmth of kin. the woman dance, around toys on the floor, the art of raising house quietly, of asking nicely for help, of expecting refusal. the young girls who are already learning to whisk in and out, hands full of food, tight smile at lewd. the moment where young girls become young women, where they are handed salad or bread to serve, where they get the joke, where a door softly opens and they are home. something deep and secret and magic. unwork, unhard, unlabor. the keeping of beasts, who roughhouse and kick up heels, who drink beers and belch at televisions. the quieting of red-cheeked shouters, whose women know to duck, to insert crackers to calm hunger, to approach with gentle hands and speak in gentle words and gentle shushing of a loud soul. inside the kitchen she straightens, she eye-rolls, she whispers men and we all, women, we know.

My fae boy’s about to sprout wings and deliver the Apocalypse,, loaf him <3

You know what, Booth and Brennan will always be my #1 otp because they gave me so much as a couple. I mean, I’m not talking about sex or smut because that’s fanfiction material (like you go girl, want to see your fave ship bang on a piano? go and read that !!!! that’s what that website is for) but everything else. The ‘platonic’ aspect of their relationship has always been the best part of their dynamic to me, but they were still able to overcome that phase and be a family. This being said, that original dynamic has never been compromized, not to me at least, because when it comes to the important stuff, Booth and Brennan are still partners first, they are still the people they would give up their life for, they would fight for each other. While the majority of other ships kinda change once they get together. Booth and Brennan never completely changed, so much that people complain because they’d rather have them being romantic the 100% of the time. I don’t. Also, it’s the little things that matter to me, like it might sound stupid, but I find it extremely adorable and precious that Brennan knows Booth by knowing his injuries. Every time something happens, she’s able to compare factures and other stuff to Booth’s. And that’s so IC, that’s something I really want to see because it’s them. And it’s been this way since she first found out about his past in 1x15 and it never changed. She imagined him on that autopsy table in 11x01 by looking at the bones, just like it happened on 12x04 with Aldo and in other many occasions. Brennan saying like I know that because of your brain tumor. She knows his brain scans. YAAAS. Give me this stuff. Give me Booth and Brennan that can’t sleep without each other at night when one of them is struggling with something, give me them talking about taking someone’s life and carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. Give me them hurting each other to save each other. They would never cheat on each other or hurt each other because they want to. They only do it because it’s the only way. Yaas. Screw sex, just give me this stuff.

im getting real tired of non-fic writers bitching about how there’s not enough content specifically tailored to what they want

how about

  1. write it yourself
  2. commission someone for it
  3. actually COMMENT and reblog the works that already exist for the things you want so writers will actually be encouraged to make more

like seriously  


Come behind the scenes with me, @sineadpersaud & @hartgracesarah on our Gotham City Sirens photoshoot! Special thanks to @davidcater for making this shoot possible and providing me with some of this BTS footage!
Why is 2017 an interesting number? – from Mathematica Stories
Some species of cicada emerge once every 17 years. It is believed that this long life cycle evolved in response to predators. Since 17 is a prime number, a predator with a shorter life cycle cannot reliably prey on the cicadas.
