Beauty and the Beast AU with Beast Yuuri and Belle Trans Victor courtesy of @jellyfishfics!

Based off this twitter thread and a chat convo!

Since the original Beast’s torso is based off a bear’s, I modeled Yuuri’s fur pattern after a Japanese Black Bear’s fur! Also, he can’t really see without glasses.

Their ball outfits are based off the Stammi Vicino outfits, but reappropriated for a sorta mid-1700s french fashion style.

anonymous asked:

Can you do an in depth character arc and story analysis for Phichit the way you did for Chris??

Awww anon of course I can! Although I have to say, what I wrote about Chris was not really as in depth as it could have been, it was more me ranting about the aspects of his character that I wish we saw more of. I can go deeper. So I’m going to go deep with Phichit. Because hey if Chris is more than his ass, then Phichit is more than just a Victuuri shipper (and borderline stalker for some reason why fandom why) and more than just a social media maniac. Much more. In fact, narrative wise, Phichit would be the best choice for bronze at the GPF because he, like the Yu(u)ris, made history.

Now, Phichit is intrinsically connected to Yuuri as a character, considering his role as his best friend. Possibly because of that, he is one of the secondary characters that gets the most screen time and attention, if not the one we learn the most about. That said one of the best things about Phichit is that, while he is very closely connected to Yuuri in the narrative, he has his own goals and story. Truly, I think the basis of Phichit’s entire character is how passionate he is about both his friends and his country.

Scuse me Kags, but can you reccomed some stony fics (oneshots) for me?

Ooh, Steve/Tony one-shots? Would length be an issue on those? Because since I’ve switched over to AO3, I’m surprised at how many “one-shots” are 20,000+ words in length.

But no matter, I’ve got shorter ones AND longer ones to rec you. :D

I’ve listed word counts, so you can decide if you want to deal with a longer “one-shot” or a shorter one. They’re all one chapter, even if the word counts might not make them seem like it. X)

Thank you so much!

I (created from fantasies) exist solely for you by Mizzy

Six years ago, without the Avengers Initiative there to save the day, scientist Dr. Eric Selvig sacrificed himself to save the world, the almighty demi-god Thor was lost to a terrible storm, and vigilante Iron Man – spotted with a nuclear weapon trying to take advantage of the situation – was forever labelled an enemy of SHIELD.

This is a comic book office AU, where Steve is defrosted a year too late, Thor has forgotten who he is, and no one knows Tony is Iron Man.

Also includes: office pranks, inappropriate post-it notes, and superheroes who like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain.

The Most Amazing Things (Some Terrible Lie) by copperbadge

Tony’s decision not to reveal his identity as Iron Man to the world was shrewd and calculated. Too bad it’s about to backfire on him like a Jericho missile.

Saving The World (Is Totally A Date) by Wordsplat

Tony discovers Stane’s betrayal while he’s still being held captive. When he escapes, he sets out to ruin Stane as completely and ruthlessly as he can, playing up his PTSD and quitting his job to destroy Stane quietly from the outside. He also picks up a teaching job-all Pepper’s fault-and oh, right, becomes a supervillain. Okay, that one was Tony’s fault, but it was totally an accident.

In the meantime, a certain Capsicle is defrosted a year early, and is assigned the task of capturing the notorious Iron Man. It’s not going particularly well, if the embarrassingly high number of times he’s been kidnapped in the past six months is any indication. When SHIELD decides to help him “adjust” by getting him a teaching job, Steve is skeptical; but then there’s Tony, and Steve finds he doesn’t mind the 21st century so much after all.

Slipping off the Page into Your Hands by Sineala

Soulmates have their first words to each other written on their wrists. This should make it easy. For Steve and Tony, it is anything but. Steve’s problem is that the future he has awoken into is nothing he was ever expecting: he has a soulmate now. Who might be a robot. And if his soulmate is Iron Man, how can he be so attracted to Tony Stark? It should be impossible. Tony’s problem is that he is Iron Man, his soulmate is a man whom he in no way deserves, and he is going to fight everything in his heart and do his best to make sure Steve never, ever finds out the whole truth.

Some Assembly Required by valtyr

Tony Stark is trying to set up a new superhero team when he’s given a sex change, courtesy of Victor von Doom. He copes with that about as well as you’d expect.

At the Heart of the Matter by Pookaseraph

Tony didn’t mean to become Steve’s BFF and the greatest thorn in his side at the same time, it just sort of happened. In a world where Tony Stark didn’t come out as Iron Man, he has managed to keep his identity a closely guarded secret, even from many of his teammates… the only problem is Steve Rogers seems to be falling for Iron Man, and he doesn’t much care for Tony Stark.

To Make Much of Time by Sineala

When Iron Man rejects Steve’s romantic advances, Steve is disappointed, but of course he understands – Iron Man’s secret identity is important. But when a portal opens and Tony Stark crashes into their midst from twelve years in the future, Steve starts to suspect that there are more secrets here than he can even begin to comprehend, and neither Iron Man nor Tony are providing any answers.

Iron Man: Unavailable, Tony Stark: In Trouble by navaan

After what happened in New York the Avengers with the help of Tony Stark are trying to become more independent. The team has grown together and for Steve Iron Man is a big part of that, although he has some trouble getting along with his employer. Then Steve faces a bit of a mystery when Tony Stark gets kidnapped – and Iron Man, who is supposed to be the man’s bodyguard when he’s not an Avenger, is nowhere to be found.

George Harrison’s animated guest appearance on The Simpsons, season 5 episode 1, “Homer’s Barbershop Quartet,” a spoof on The Beatles. It first aired in the U.S. on 30 September 1993, and in the U.K. on 3 October 1993. (Photos: Fox, unspecified)

[Backstage]
Homer: “Then came the greatest thrill of my life.”
George Harrison: “Hello Homer, I’m George Harrison.”
Homer: “Oh my god. Oh my god! Where did you get that brownie?”
George: “Over there, there’s a big pile of ’em.”
[Homer makes gleeful noises and eats brownies]
Homer: “Oh man…”
George: “Well, what a nice fellow.”
* * *
[George seeing The Be Sharps performing on the roof]: “It’s been done.”

“Over the years, guest appearances by musical superstars - from Tony Bennett to Elton John to three of The Beatles - have left the producers star-struck.
‘We met George Harrison. We were recording it from the outside and we went in the room to shake his hand. And he goes, “You just want to get in the room to shake my hand.”'” - USA Today, 10 September 2014

“When you meet them and you don’t talk about the Beatles, they get really happy. We did talk about the Beatles, but I also mentioned one of [George Harrison’s] solo albums [Wonderwall Music], and his eyes lit up.” - Matt Groening, Paley Festival, 15 March 2007

* * *
According to the episode commentary on the season 5 DVDs, George arrived at the recording studio in L.A. by himself without any entourage or bodyguards, and seemed - according to Matt Groening - “pretty glum” and unenthusiastic regarding questions about The Beatles. But after Groening asked George about Wonderwall Music, he “perked up,” since the album wasn’t particularly one he was often asked about. Groening ranks George’s guest appearance as one of his favorites because George was “super nice” and “very sweet” to the staff.

Dog Days

“Oh dear – Lightning!”

Victor races down the street, chasing the tiny corgi puppy sporting a bright yellow collar and matching leash. “Lightning! Lightning, sit! Sit, boy! Sit!

But it appears Lightning thinks this is a fine game of chase and isn’t willing to stop it anytime soon. “Oh dear…excuse me! Please! Catch that dog!”

How to Show You're Hopelessly Besotted by the Heroine in 3 Seconds or Less: A Masterclass by Colin Morgan

(gif courtesy simplycolin)

I almost made this an “Ode to the Insane Talent of Colin Morgan” post, but I didn’t think that was fair seeing as I haven’t actually had the privilege of seeing the actual film yet. 

Have a close look at the gif above. Victor kisses Vera’s left cheek, and as they move to kiss their other cheeks, watch Victor closely. As he moves, he slows down, hesitates oh-so-slightly as Vera’s face passes in front of his. His eyes drift to her lips and the split-second of hope, of yearning is so palpable that it’s like a kick in the stomach (as least to me) when you watch it.

But Vera never notices his reaction because she isn’t even really looking at him. To her, it’s an automatic gesture of greeting or goodbye to her friend. To Victor, every time is one more chance, no matter how small, that Vera might finally see him.  

Then the moment is gone, and he hurries his movement so that his hesitation goes unnoticed. Watch the look on Colin’s face as he pulls back from the cheek kiss. His lips are pursed into a grim line of resignation and that brief light of excitement and anticipation in his eyes has been extinguished. 

Here, study this same clip with a little bit added to the end:

(clip courtesy omggalina)

As Victor takes a step back, look at how his expression changes once again. There is a fire of determination in Victor’s eyes here, a fierce devotion that clearly says he would still give his life to protect her, even knowing she would never be his.

And all of that broadcasted by Colin in 3 seconds without one word spoken. 

I have never seen an actor with better command over minute facial expressions than Colin. He truly is a master at it.

Small Rustic Cabin on 40 Acres in Colorado with Mountain Views for Sale

by ALEX PINO

I was excited to have an email from Victor Summers from Simple Shelter Texas about one of his latest small rustic cabins.

He calls it an eco-retreat because it sits on 40 acres off the grid in the San Luis Valley in south-central Colorado.

So yes, there are amazing views of the Sangre de Cristro Mountains from the cabin.

Small Rustic Cabin on 40 Acres with Mountain Views for Sale

Victor asked me to let you know that the cabin, along with the property, is up for sale for $275,000.

But if you tell him you saw this post he’ll reduce the price to $225,000. So tell him Alex, from TinyHouseTalk.com sent you if you happen to be interested.

Photos Courtesy of Victor Summers

The 650-square-foot cabin is miles away from the electrical grid and sits at about 8500′ elevation in the southern part of Colorado.

There is solar power in place for the well pump and the lights. And you can see that lots of reclaimed materials were used to build the cabin.

The way it’s currently set up the home requires propane for the refrigerator and stove, so it’s not a completely off-grid solution because you’d still rely on the use of propane.

Funky and Impractical Ideas to Solve Propane Reliance

Get enough solar panels to power an ice maker and a cooler
Recycle the water from the melted ice and use it for your crops
Utilize a solar baking oven for cooking your meals
Have a wood burning cooking stove as a backup for rainy days
That was fun for me, haha. Do you have any ideas? Please share them in the comments.

Reclaimed Materials

Much of the house is clad with old wood from fences and old buildings, see below…
