celebrity look for less

since you're taking prompts... you should write something scandalous with retired figure skater turned lit professor viktor >:)c (- ren xoxo)

i love this prompt, @renaissancefic​! shout out to @lookatthesetreasures​ for helping me with euro lit & my friend camille for the setting.


There had been plenty of speculations on what would come after figure skating for the Living Legend, Viktor Nikiforov. The most popular and commonly-agreed upon outcome was that he’d continue coaching, taking up the mantle left by his coach, Yakov Feltsman in Yubileyny Sports Palace; the younger skaters had been excited at the prospect of studying under him, especially now that his husband had retired, too. Others enumerated ideal jobs for someone as young as Viktor, barely even in his mid-thirties: modeling, acting, and a few even guessed that he would get into politics.

Viktor had the spotlight on him ever since his junior days, up until he’d gone up to the senior division, but less so. He had, of course, consistently stood on the podium with less consistent skaters, but, before his five-year golden streak at the age of twenty-two, nobody really knew what he did outside of competitive skating, besides taking care of his poodle. No one knew, besides Yakov and Lilia, that he’d taken on an undergraduate degree in comparative literature, focusing on European literature. So when Viktor and Yuuri disappeared from figure skating, hardly on any magazines and shows either as models or actors, the last place they’d expect to find the couple was in a coastal city in Wales. Viktor had breezed through his master’s and was now on his way to a doctorate, while Yuuri juggled his own study and teaching children in a small ice-skating rink that was a thirty minute walk from their rented home.

Viktor had to admit, the solitude offered by anonymity was comforting. He grazed the halls of the Arts and Letters building of the university and caught less than five turning heads. With each step, he appreciated the high, pointed arches of the windows leading up to the beautiful vaulted ceiling. The place usually looked intimidating and imposing, but the stained glass colored the rough-hewn stone walls and columns so brightly in the morning, which gave his path to his first class a sort of airy and delicate feel that reminded him of stepping onto the ice for a performance.

For day 1 of vrisktereziweek, please consider me and @prospitian-monarch‘s au where Terezi and Vriska are massively famous competing rock stars who don’t actually hate each other at all anymore and just find their media rivalry completely hilarious.

The bitterness actually was real for a while, after they broke up and Vriska ditched their underground indie duo to make it big as a solo star and Terezi got into the business too, and for about a year they genuinely meant it when they wrote thinly veiled mean songs about each other and subtly (or unsubtly) badmouthed each other on talk shows and deliberately booked venues across the street from each other to try and drown each other’s music. But then the press started speculating about backstabbing and catfights and which boys they were fighting over, and soon Terezi was sending Vriska links to the worst articles and their friendship was back on track again, and within a few months they were kissing backstage and wearing outrageous disguises to go on dates together. They kept the public rivalry, though, because it was too much fun to watch music writers on clickbait sites pick through every little detail in their lyrics, and the whole theme was doing wonders for both of their brands, and they hated to let down their fans! And so it continued, and they continued having a blast.

Their fans can’t tell what the hell is up with them, but both of their official fansites have forums just for theorizing about what the fuck happened between them back in their Scourge Sisters days. People pore through their lyrics looking for clues and post comments on lyric sites speculating on the meaning of the songs. Both Terezi and Vriska have whole fleets of interns who they hire solely to write scathing replies to people who make clueless heterosexual comments on their youtube videos, or to post wild rumours about the massive property damage caused last time the two had met in public.

Every time they go on an “incognito date” Terezi insists on wearing shitty red plastic heart-shaped sunglasses and a giant red hat instead of her trademark, ostensibly to hide her face but mostly because she loves how horrified it makes everyone around them look. Vriska tries to look slightly less like a celebrity by wearing baggy jackets and hoodies, but inevitably, at least once a week, they’re recognized and asked for their autographs, and they get a chance to showcase their ridiculous lying skills. Terezi’s favorite alibi is to pretend to be a hapless law student who has no idea what they’re talking about and wouldn’t dream of giving them her signature. Vriska, every single time, signs as Spinneret Mindfang and claims to be a very devoted pirate cosplayer.

At one point, they both released dramatic press statements just a few weeks apart announcing that they were writing memoirs that would contain all the juicy details of their rivalry. Then they both signed contracts with Rose Lalonde, accomplished novelist, and gave her creative license to ghostwrite whatever she wanted based only on what she knew about them personally and her wildest Freudian speculations as to their psyches and motivations. Both books were bestsellers, despite being wildly conflicting and filled to the brim with purple prose.

Terezi had her publisher contact Vriska’s publisher to ask if they could release the books side by side as some sort of omnibous, just so that Vriska ignite some more controversy with an incendiary response. They cuddled up in Terezi’s bed with their laptops and Vriska fired off eight angry tweets about how she’d rather die than have her life story published alongside Terezi’s. Terezi responded saying that Vriska was right to fear being compared side by side, considering how atrociously boring and tasteless Vriska’s book would look in comparison, and then they spooned while scrolling through the resulting twitter war on Terezi’s phone. What can they say? Some people just want to watch the world burn, and the reunited Scourge Sisters are two of them.

LOTD: Gwen Stefani

Get her head-to-toe black and white graphic look 

If you ever want to play with patterns and prints, look to Gwen Stefani’s funky style for inspiration. While out in Los Angeles, she wore a head-to-to-black and white outfit (even in her accessories!), but didn’t stick to simple solids. She mixed her polka dot top with Chloé checked crepe trousers and finished off her look with her matching Quay sunglasses, black Christian Louboutin studded boots and white Chanel leather bag. To give her monochrome look a pop of color, she put on her signature red lip.

anonymous asked:

can you compare 10 or less people in the famdom to celebrities look-alikes?

Hey anon! Uh people in the famdom? No, not really lol - and to those that have so graciously shared what they look like to the fandom; I haven’t really thought about that so I’ll post this question to everyone who wants to answer!

But specifically myself; in the past people have told me that I kind of look like Jordan Sparks (mostly when I smiled and had long hair); which is such a huge compliment because she’s gorgeous.

Thanks for the ask anon!

The bar was mostly quiet, with the exception of a Turian who had obviously had too much to drink and was celebrating something. He was accompanied by a rather small quarian who looked less than amused by his antics, and was definitely not drinking. “Erik…. Please.” She tried, giving the other people in the bar in embarrassment. The Turian huffed and leaned against her for a minute. “I’m fiiiiiinnneee. I’ll walk back myself, see?” He assured, standing up and taking a step, before falling forward and ending up falling right against another Turian. All he managed was a slurred apology before he slumped and fell to the floor, earning a sigh of defeat from the quarian. “S-Sorry about him…” She began, looking from the passed out drunken turian to the one he had collapsed against.

cluelessakemi  asked:

My favorite thing about Jared is how easy it is to talk to him. As someone who has social anxiety, it can be difficult for me to talk to people, much less celebrities. Jared looked me in the eye with laser- focus and spoke to me like I was the only one there, and instead of it being intimidating I was totally put at ease. He is honestly one of the warmest, kindest souls I have ever met. :')

You describe it perfectly. When I first met him, I expected it to be slightly uncomfortable and nothing special, but it was the exact opposite of that. When he’s talking to you, when you’re talking to him, you’re the only person who exists for him. And instead of being scary or intimidating, that’s the single most comforting, relaxing thing in the world. I don’t know how, don’t know why, but talking with him is special.

Send me your favourite thing about Jared?

I took whatever Swiss I found laying around in my flat and organize it for this picture in order to celebrate August the 1st. I realize just after I could have add several books, bottles of wine, chocolate, also various pens and knives, and it would had look like a bit less like a celebration of Swiss Army. But the idea is there. Happy national day!
