1D STARTS CHAPTER 2: When Simon Cowell had the idea of putting together a group out of five teenagers who’d separately auditioned for The X Factor in 2010, he created one of the biggest acts of the 21st century—and that may prove to just be part one of the One Direction narrative.
Four 1D alumni are now in play—and in competition—as ZAYN, Niall Horan, Harry Styles and most recently Liam Payne have all launched solo careers. Styles is making a huge mark with his Columbia debut album and lead single, and his forthcoming, as yet unannounced, arena tour is going to be ginormous.
RCA is high on ZAYN, as he continues to work on his second album—the final one under his deal. Insiders anticipate a new long-term deal at RCA despite ZAYN’s infamously questionable decision-making regarding media and promotion, which was recently evidenced by his no-show at the Bible’s awards special, where he was expected to accept the trophy for Top New Artist.
Capitol is extremely optimistic about Horan’s burgeoning career; his first single went Top 10, and the second, “Slow Hands,” is off to a strong start—at press time it’s #21 at Pop radio and #7 at iTunes.
Payne, signed by Capitol U.K.’s Nick Raphael and Jo Charrington, looks big in the U.K., while his debut single had a strong first two weeks at Pop radio in the U.S., where Payne is with red-hot Republic.
The story of a story, that went beyond the distance.
I drew it in 2010, re-created in 2014, and yesterday a short movie adaptation was aired in Japan in the Kumamoto International Manga Festival.
I don’t think the dA addict girl from 2010 had this plan in mind.
She was too busy creating and sharing.
This is a true humbling experience that reminds me and hopefully those who struggle, how to focus on creating rather than the pay off.
The first will take you places better than you would plan yourself.
Thank you Silent Manga Audition for everything!
They did more than what is only seen on the outside!
You can watch the full short movie on the Silent Manga Audition Official Youtube Channel.
Me creating characters in 2010:
They have a really complex backstory that's tragic and explains everything about the way they are and how they react to the world and their name is a reflection of their personality and past.
Me creating characters in 2017:
This is Grayvyn. She's a goth elf. Her name is Grayvyn because she's halfway between a raven and the GRAVE.
With just three days left in his term Obama is taking steps to safeguard the historic Paris climate agreement — to the tune of $500 million.
On Tuesday, Obama transferred the sum to the Green Climate Fund, a trust created in 2010 to allow wealthy countries to financially assist developing nations in reducing emissions.
The United States has pledged a total of $3 billion to the fund. Combined with an earlier $500 million payment made in March 2016, the U.S. still owes $2B — a debt of which President-elect Donald Trump has pledged to pay none. Read more
but will music history ever find any lyrics that rival the image taylor swift creates in dear john (2010) of the man who sets girls on fire to keep himself warm and the girl who steals his matches so no woman ever has to burn at his hand again

MCU timelines are a thing of incomprehension. According to the MCU wiki, the Jericho missile was created in 2010, and the EXO-7 thing was “sometime before 2014″ which I’m assuming means that Winter Soldier takes place in 2014. *eyes MCU timeline* Sure. We’ll just… go with that.
Whatever, let’s just consider timelines to be wibbly wobbly.
Tony Stark had a reputation. He was charming, an asshole, egotistical (and had a reason for it, with his genius and successful company), and damn good with weapons.
Sam wasn’t expecting anything more, and the first time he met Tony Stark, he didn’t get it.
Charming smile, quick words and handshakes, eyes that never settled on anyone for long. Except Rhodes. The smile was a bit looser, the words a bit warmer, when directed at Rhodes. But then, they’d supposedly known each other since their college days, and Rhodes was starting a liaison position with SI and the military.

“Did you really think it was going to be canon?” You’re right. Silly fucking me for thinking queerbaiting wouldn’t come from a show co created by a gay man, with excessive amounts of queer text and subtext, created in 2010 into the year of 2017. How fucking ridiculous of me. I guess I shouldn’t ask for so much
