B99 Network Presents: Top 10 Cold Opens!

if it doesn’t come bursting out of you
in spite of everything,
don’t do it.
unless it comes unasked out of your
heart and your mind and your mouth
and your gut,
don’t do it.
if you have to sit for hours
staring at your computer screen
or hunched over your typewriter
searching for words,
don’t do it.
if you’re doing it for money or fame,
don’t do it.
if you’re doing it because you want
women in your bed,
don’t do it.
if you have to sit there and rewrite it again and again,
don’t do it.
if it’s hard work just thinking about doing it,
don’t do it.
if you’re trying to write like somebody else,
forget about it.

if you have to wait for it to roar out of you,
then wait patiently.
if it never does roar out of you,
do something else.

if you first have to read it to your wife
or your girlfriend or your boyfriend
or your parents or to anybody at all,
you’re not ready.

don’t be like so many writers,
don’t be like so many thousands of
people who call themselves writers,
don’t be dull and boring and
pretentious, don’t be consumed with self-love.
the libraries of the world have
yawned themselves to sleep
over your kind.
don’t add to that.
don’t do it.
unless it comes out of
your soul like a rocket,
unless being still would
drive you to madness or
suicide or murder,
don’t do it.
unless the sun inside you is burning your gut,
don’t do it.

when it is truly time,
and if you have been chosen,
it will do it by itself and if it will
keep on doing it
until you die or it dies in you.
there is no other way.
and there never was.

—  Charles Bukowski, So You Want To Be A Writer?

Even if it’s just a game, I still do so hate to lose.

I’m stealthy, like a ninja. | for @burnhamsmichael


What if you’d never seen the sea before? What if the only thing you’d ever seen was a child’s picture -blue crayon, choppy waves? Would you know the real sea if you only knew the picture? Would you be able to recognise the real thing even if you saw it? You don’t know what Dionysus looks like. We’re talking about God here. God is serious business.

Henry Winter as God 

Charles and Camilla Macaulay as a Seraphim. 

Francis Abernathy as a Cherubim. 

Bunny Corcoran as Lucifer, the fallen angel. 

Richard Papen as the believer. 


Charles Luciano was arrested around 25 times throughout his life. Here are some of his mugshots. The top image was taken between 1929 and 1931 - I’m assuming - since he looks younger than his 1931 mugshot, but still has the droopy eye he got from his attack in October, 1929. The rest of the images were taken on February 2, 1931, April 18, 1936, and June, 1936 respectively.  

Update - 

MEYERLANSKY said: It’s actually likely that the first mugshot is from before the ’29 ride; I usually see it dated ’28, when he was questions about Rothstein’s murder. There’s another lineup with Charlie and the Diamond brothers that was taken before the ride, and he’s got some droop in that picture as well. The tendon damage from the attack exacerbated it for sure, but it seems like Charlie had a natural uneven-ness to his face even before it :P 


downton abbey meme: [1/3] quotes:

“I am on your side.”

Now I’m the villain in your history
I was too young and blind to see…
I should’ve known
I should’ve known
The world was wide enough for both Hamilton and me

Inktober #5 - Erik Lehnsherr & Charles Xavier, X-men - Hamilton AU.


“Charles, it’s been months since Erik died. I’m sorry i wasn’t there to accompany you. I know how much he meant for you. I’ll go back home as soon as i can.

Love, Raven.”

Twist and Shout was stuck in my head and this happened? What trash I am. (also, evident prove as to why I never draw Fassy-Erik, because his face hates my hand)

ALSO, I’ve started doing speedpaints, this being my first one. Watch it here and subscribe to me, maybe if you want to? It would much appreciated if you did!

Father’s Day at Xavier’s

Just a one-shot I wrote in honor of Father’s Day and the fact that Charles Xavier is the Team Dad we all need in our lives.

Takes place after X-Men Apocalypse.

There’s something fishy going on at the mansion and Charles Xavier knows it.

For one thing, the students have been acting very odd lately.

He began noticing it a few days ago when he stopped to talk to Jubilee, who’d been asking about extra credit opportunities.  He was explaining how she could write an additional book report when he noticed that she seemed somewhat nervous.  Odd.  Jubilee was often remarkably comfortable around teachers.  Why the sudden change?

Charles opened up his mind to Jubilee’s thoughts.  Not full-on mind reading (that would have been unspeakably rude) but just enough to discern the state of her mind.

He couldn’t sense anything other than the fact that she had the Piña Colada song stuck in her head.
