Forever Is Composed of Nows, 34/? (Olicity, Mature)

Co-written with @so-caffeinated​, for @olicityficbang

Summary: Sometime in the not-so-distant future, things aren’t going all that well. At least that’s the story Oliver and Felicity are told when a supposed time-traveler (and their supposed friend who is a supposed superhero supposedly named The Flash) pops up in the lair with a toddler in tow… who calls them momma and daddy. The Flash can’t quite control when he’s going at this point and there’s a big bad chasing him through the years. The future isn’t safe for little Elizabeth Queen at the moment (even if The Flash could get her there), but her once and future parents haven’t got a clue what to do with her. Slade Wilson, however… he might have his own agenda when he finds out his nemesis is apparently a father. (See Chapter 1 for additional Author Notes.)

Warning: Chapter contains violent gore-filled descriptions of violence. (We really didn’t hold back.)


Anything that makes Slade happy isn’t good.

His eyes never leaving the screen, Oliver drops his hand to Felicity’s shoulder. He grips her tightly, probably too tightly, but he can’t help it.

“Felicity…” he chokes out, his voice wet and raw.

“He’s a bad man,” Ellie replies before Felicity can even open her mouth. She’s curled in on herself slightly, her eyes glued on the screen, her lips twisted in a scowl. Felicity makes a move to cover the screen, but Oliver’s already shifting their daughter to his other side, partially blocking her view with his body. But Ellie just shakes her head, turning to Oliver. “I don’t like him. And I don’t think Aunt Thea knows he’s a bad man. You gotta go get Aunt Thea, Daddy.” She pats his cheek. “I’ll stay here and take care of Momma. I’ll make sure she doesn’t sleep again.”

Inspirational Illustrations on Notebooks & Stationary Pay Homage to the Magic of Nature by Katie Daisy

Oregon-based illustrator Katie Daisy admits to being raised by “birds and warm breezes” in a small town, “where she was brought up among the other wildflowers with roots planted deeply in the natural world.” Deeply impassioned by nature, Daisy’s aim is to interpret the beauty of Mother Earth she has engraved deeply in her velvet bones.

She hopes to convey the message of our surroundings through her adventurous and vibrant illustrations. Composed by watercolor, acrylic, photoshop, the watercolor creations contain messages of inspiration, love of beauty, poetry and nature expressed by the most influential minds in literature, art and humanity.

Adorned with floral patterns, constellations, landscape sceneries, and plants, Daisy’s work is a wildly romantic series, which urges everyone to dream. The small literary excerpts communicate the simple joys of life and the magic found in nature. You can find her entire collection in her Etsy shop.

Secret Satan

(Or Secret Samhain, Secret Skeleton… pick a favorite.)
Way back in like… spring? I twitter’d the idea of a spookytimes blind gift exchange. The idea would be to compose Halloween-oriented wishlists, like costume supplies, scary books, gift art of monstery OCs, seasonal candy, stuff like that, and then get a random assignment to make someone’s Halloween dreams come true (within reason).

Would anyone be interested? If I get enough yeas, I’ll make a special email to coordinate the thing and open a signup window.

Something I’ve taken into consideration is that international shipping from the US is financially impossible for a lot of us, so if this gets a lot of (global) interest I may organize groups by region (or at least have that be an option) to save wallets.

Feel free to boost!

Whats the difference between pan and bi?

I’m copying this from Wikipedia’s article on pansexuality:

“A literal dictionary definition of bisexuality, due to the prefix bi-, is sexual or romantic attraction to two sexes (males and females), or to two genders (men and women). Pansexuality, however, composed with the prefix pan-, is the sexual attraction to a person of any sex or gender. Using these definitions, pansexuality is defined differently by explicitly including people who are intersex or outside the gender binary.”

Hello, this is a bit random maybe, but can you explain Jonghyun's monthly live connection? Earlier on blue night I heard the song "it must be autumn" and it's from that. Now I've heard of it before and see some short videos on youtube. But I don't get what the idea behind it was and how the videos and songs connect. And when I google it I just get links to those videos/songs or articles about releases. So if you could explain it that would be helpful. (Love the blog btw)

thank you! monthly live connection was (essentially) a pilot program launched by mnet where the focus was bringing two very different musicians together to compose a song with one another. initially, it was announced by jonghyun around mid-september of last year that he’d be on a show sometime in month that followed that mnet told him they wouldn’t do unless he was the first guest on. he accepted, obviously. they asked him to create a list of connections to different people within the industry (friends, co-workers, etc.) and they ended up picking jung joon young to be the person that he’d do the song with. so, the core of the show was jjy and jonghyun doing a song with each other, but it eventually ended up brancing out to the both of them doing songs with some of their other listed connections: jjong with soran’s go young bae (for the song you mentioned), jjy with eddy kim and kisum and jonghyun did a solo song as well (with the help of his friend sojin). the show didn’t end up getting picked up after jonghyun’s episodes aired, but.

Hrrrrrrnnnngggghuhhh! I’m gonna be talking to the music composer of Portal in a couple of days. Nervous/excited to get some insights on how to better my music and hopefully squeak into the music composition side of the gaming industry. Like, that’d be a dream job right there, and I’ve only been composing music since I was four??? At the very least, it’ll be so cool to learn more!

Everyone’s taste in music is so personal, I’ve found music a very good way to get to know someone. (It’s something I started doing with Gerard Butler when we were shooting Phantom of the Opera in London. He loves Ennio Morricone. In fact, during the filming Gerry and I went to see the great composer in concert at Royal Albert Hall. It’s really something special if you ever get the chance to see him live.

I was just rewatching LLS ep1 (and aiming to rewatch the rest) to prepare myself for the fated ep9.

Calamari doodle ideas aside…. I also got this muse to write DiaRiko?????? I still believe they’ll be the new lyrcist x composer ship

has anyone else thought about such possible ship??

pujari-wei-ratio  asked:

You've probably touched on this in your Halo 4 love letter but in the Didact death scene, how did Cortana solid hologram herself from a lightbridge and do what she and all her fragmented selves did. I always thought of lightbridges as just a very simple hardlight projector that did straight lines and basic 2d patterns pretty well. Is there any canon lightbridge science in Halo that explains that bit or was it actually just a big "the power of love and friendship" moment.

There is actually science behind hardlight, it hasn’t been fully explained yet but we’ve been told that it relies on some kind of interplay between high-energy light and gas particles that makes them solid in a defined shape.

So after you board the Mantle’s Approach and you have to find out where the Composer is, you plug Cortana directly into the ship’s systems. This is the moment where the Didact actually discovers that Cortana even exists, and he spends the rest of the level in the background trying to find her while she is trying to locate the Composer - but, as Cortana is an AI designed for infiltration of enemy systems, she manages to elude him until the moment where he destroys her terminal after the Composer is fired. At that point, since she has no data crystal chip to return to, she is physically stuck in the ship but can use its systems to her advantage.

Throughout the level, when plugged into Mantle’s Approach, she has control over various parts of the ship, like the local portal network she uses to ferry you around. At the end, she basically just taps into the hardlight systems and uses it to give herself and her rampant copies a physical form, which she is able to use to bind the Didact to the light bridge - which, scientifically speaking, within the realms of what little we know, is her extending the area of interplay between light and gas particles to parts of the Didact’s suit.

Maybe that’s just what hardlight science is though - the power of love and friendship. Nobody would have thought of that, which is why we don’t have hardlight tech today :P

niktheno  asked:

I was just wondering, do you have any albums (mini or full) that you would recommend? I've been looking for some new music to listen to!

Ooooh I got a lot of reccomendations for you~ ;^)

  • First of all definitely check out Cosmic Girl’s newest mini album ‘Secret’. It’s by far one of the best releases this year in k-pop c; 
  • The Clan pt1 by Monsta X is also super rad- It’s more in the hip-hop/alternative genre, but it’s still got some amazing songs!
  • Melted by Mamamoo is something everyone should look into since it features amazing vocals and lit af songs. 
  • 19 to 20 by Park Jimin (15&) is something you NEED to listen to immediately. Her voice is like pure gold and all the songs are composed in an R&B/Alternative like genre since she takes a lot of her inspiration from Western artists such as Tinashe :^0 If you’re not interested in the entire mini-album, atleast listen to the song Answer
  • VIXX also dropped their latest mini-album about two weeks ago and is something worth checking out
The mysterious case of the 3 Ands

I composed a poem in a dream last night

But I didn’t see the process,

Just the finished product

It was quite the sight

I say I composed the poem

Because dreams are all in your head

But you gave it to me on my birthday

So maybe I should credit you instead

The setting was a ballroom

Or somewhere else quite grand

An open staircase connected two floors

But I’m not sure which end had the upper hand

By that I mean the girls lined up like ducks in a row

Arranged in my view like a z, which reminded me of Zorro

Over each girl was a word, and I really liked your composition

But what really caught and kept my attention

Were the 3 Ands diagonally positioned



Overlooking downtown Austin, the Hillside House uses its sloped terrain to amplify views of the neighboring cityscape. The home is broken up into two levels, joined by a standing-seam metal roof. Sitting on top of the bluff, the main floor is composed of the living areas and master suite. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the interior with light and frame in views, while glazed doors lead out to a courtyard created by the lower wing’s green roof. Every space is designed to flow out to the porches, gardens and outdoor living spaces surrounding the home to embrace the exterior landscape.

Chasing the Horizon by stilinski (34k, E)

 Stiles nearly laughs and for a moment, he sits there trying to think of anything to say. “It’s been a good year,” he croaks at long last. “I got you back–I got you back and I was so scared I’d lose you, you know? I got out there; I backpacked across half of Europe with my best friends - I got to see the never less than perfectly composed Lydia Martin after a few days without showers or real beds. Scott and Allison got married, dad. I made a speech.”

 The Sheriff’s expression softens and he smiles, reaching up and clapping Stiles’ shoulder. “You did. I was there. You had Melissa, Scott and Allison in tears.”

Hagalaz by TheHatterTheory (345k, E; series, 3 finished parts, 2 unfinished)

In the aftermath of the sacrifice, Stiles is just trying to survive day to day life. He’s also failing miserably.

In The Darkest Hour by PeanutButter (24k, E)

Six astronauts, affectionately nicknamed The Pack, are NASA’s elite and have been selected to conduct the first human space flight to Mars.

They knew it wasn’t going to be easy, exploring unchartered territory on a planet 225 million miles away, but no one had truly thought there would be problems from the very beginning. Now, stranded on the red planet, something’s out there, waiting to pick them off.

One by one.

it’s gonna take a superman by kellifer_fic (14k, T)

Derek figured the Children of Villains support group would at least be full of outcasts like him. How wrong could he be?

Murder, He Wrote by mklutz (32k, E)

And that was how Stiles accidentally became a New York Times bestselling author.

Option C) Some Bad Guys are Werewolves, but Not All Werewolves are Bad Guys by calrissian18 (9k, T)

Derek Hale—the Incredible Meat that Thinks—needs a math tutor. Stiles Stilinski needs something that will look better on his college applications than ‘passable D&D Dungeon Master.’

It’s a match made in heaven. Er, right?

Play Crack the Sky by WeAreTheCyclones (123k, M)

Excerpt from “Hale Pulls the Plug on the Future of Rock,” Rolling Stone, Issue 1203 – Oct. 2014
“Fans and music industry vets alike are left reeling in the wake of bassist Derek Hale’s sudden departure from Smokes for Harris. At a time when the foursome from Beacon Hills, California seems to be on the cusp of rock superstardom after just one double platinum record, Smokes has everything to lose.”

Excerpt from “Smokes for Harris: Gladiator,” – Feb. 2015
“Smokes for Harris gives in a little to the pop punk of yesteryear in their sophomore effort, but rather than pandering to fans of a lost era they elevate the genre in a way that hasn’t been seen in quite some time. Frontman Stiles Stilinski works double duty as singer and primary songwriter and proves that he can handle the task even without former bassist Derek Hale.“

Science of Evasion by gsmaxwell (65k, E)

Derek had thought Cora had died in the fire. There was a stamp on her files, somewhere, with a bright red DECEASED and a life insurance policy processed, paid, and received. It wasn’t like they could just stroll into the school office and enroll midyear whoopsie-daisy do-over without some kind of legal explanation. However when Stiles mentioned it Cora looked at him like he had suggested disemboweling puppies.

But, as time wore on, it became obvious that though the Hales self-described as a ‘close-knit family pack’ there was only so long those strings could last without fraying.

Sell Your Body to the Night by Dira Sudis (dsudis) (122k, E)

"No,” he repeated impatiently. “I’m not a cop. I’m someone who wants to exchange my money for your sexual services. I was told you were in that line of work.”

“I, uh, yeah, sorry,” Stiles said. He glanced around again and then up–the full moon was almost directly overhead. Just one of those nights, maybe. “Yeah, I am. I do that.”

the lovers [murderers] in 9B by ofherlionheart (8k, T)

There is a new resident in apartment 9B, and he and his boyfriend are either serial killers … or just really loud in bed.

Derek Hale moves into a new apartment building, and his new neighbors try to figure out what to make of him and his frequent visitor, Stiles Stilinski.

the one where the Hales are related to the Addams by callunavulgari (8k, M; series, 2 parts)

“So is this a werewolf thing or a you thing?” Stiles asks eventually. He’s half-hysterical, but his heartbeat is still steadier than Derek would have expected it to be. “Because I’m pretty sure Scott would die if I chopped off his head.”

“It’s a me thing,” Derek says. “Well, it’s a Hale thing. A Hale-Addams thing. Look, can you help me reattach this? I’m a bit out of practice, so it’ll be easier if you do it.”

The Sins of My Caretaker by weatervaanes (23k, E)

It smells like smoke, that’s what wakes him up. It doesn’t smell like burning wood, which would really freak him out, it just smells disgusting like—



In which Stiles is the oldest sibling to a fucked up family and it’s his job to make sure they don’t end up dead, meth addicts, or in juvie. And then Derek crashes into his world and makes everything a little bit more interesting.

the thunder and the laughter (the last thing they —) by nagia (20k, M)

“Average investigative journalist shot at 3 times per week” factoid actually just statistical error. Average investigative journalist shot at 0 times per week. Derek Hale, who’s shot at over 10,000 times each day and wishes he lived in a cave, is an outlier and should not have been counted.

OR: That one where Deucalion is still a scary motherfucker, the Stilinskis retrieve antiquities, Derek is an investigative journalist, and they’re all looking for a Mayan codex.

The Walls Are Breathing In by secondstar (42k, E)

Nothing could go wrong. It was just supposed to be a safe trip to the Nemeton. But this is Beacon Hills and things are rarely that simple. Welcome to the life of Stiles Stilinski.

Or, that time that Stiles accidentally became a sorcerer against his will.

There’s Monsters at Home by calrissian18 (84k, E)

“How did you get past the wards?” Derek had put them up, with Peter’s grudging assistance, after the Alpha pack had made themselves at home a few times too many.

The guy pulled a face. “You mean the wards a five-year-old girl with the mental ability of a goldfish could deconstruct?” He blinked wide eyes at Derek. “Gee, I don’t know. It’s bound to go down as one of life’s great mysteries.”

Derek despised him.
