crows feet

Watching a super hero movie directed by a woman is like putting glasses on for the first time.

I didn’t realize how much I had to squint through the “male gaze” till suddenly, miraculously, I didn’t have to.

There were absolutely NO eye candy shots of Diana. There were Amazons with ageing skin and crows feet and not ONE of them wore armor that was a glorified corset. When Diana did the superhero landing, her thigh jiggled onscreen.

Did you hear me? HER FUCKING THIGH JIGGLED. Wonder Woman’s thigh jiggled on a 20-foot tall screen in front of everyone.

Because she wasn’t there to make men drool. She wasn’t there to be sexy and alluring and flirt her way to victory, and that means she has big, muscular thighs, and when they absorb the impact of a superhero landing, they jiggle, and.that’s.WONDERFUL.

Thank you, Patty Jenkins, for giving me a movie about a woman, told by a woman,so I can see it through my eyes, not some dude bro who’s there for boobs and butts.

I used to mock the fact that so many tv shows and movies use people who are like 29 to play highschool students but you know what if it keeps fewer kids on set where some grody ass fucking pedo director could put their hands on them I’m all for highschool specials with crows feet and five o'clock shadow because honestly like 3 people total in Hollywood can be trusted and they’re on thin fuckin ice

y’all ever wonder why half the beauty/cosmetics industry is geared towards anti-aging but they market almost none of it to men. i’ve never seen an ad for wrinkle cream for men, or age spot corrector for men, or youth serum for men, or crows feet treatment for men, like why are they allowed to age in peace but women aren’t. why can’t I just get fuckin old without every corner of every drugstore telling me it’s bad

Zevran Arainai was born in 9:04-9:05 Dragon, making him ~40 years old at the time of the Trespasser events in Inquisition in 9:44 Dragon, and I would love to see more art of middle-aged looking Zevran. Especially in DA4 speculative works. Beautiful older Zevran, please. Laugh lines, crows feet (teehee), threads of silver/grey hair.

  • Nick: I saw when you did Carpool Karaoke with Harry when you swapped clothes. And you're right, he REALLY pulls stuff of.
  • James: There's nothing that man can't wear. It's so annoying.
  • Nick: When he wins like style awards, fashion awards, and they're all like 'He just looks incredible!' and essentially what he's wearing is a T-shirt and jeans. What they're awarding is his bone structure.
  • James: Yeah. It's just that inner thing which is unquantifiable. Ironically, the very thing he has is the X factor.
  • Nick: I hope he gets jowls. And crows feet.
  • James: Noooo, cause if he gets crows feet he'd pull them off like Jagger, you know what I mean?
  • Nick: UURGH GOD WE HATE HIM!

hey if you're still doing prompts, the time(s) someone outside of the team (or inside) mistakes aaron for andrew or the other way around?? thanks!! i love your writing!!

There should be some sort of rule, Aaron thinks, that identical twins have to avoid celebrity. 

It was disarming enough to be a teenager the first time he saw his own face with nothing inside of it, like an indifferent stone likeness. Then Andrew went and got himself famous, made himself important to everyone (including Aaron). He stares out from magazine spreads with his middle finger up when Aaron goes through the checkout counter, and he follows him closely with his reputation.

He’s had patients bow out of the exam room when they heard their intern was ‘A. Minyard’. He’s had anger and relief flip toggles in his chest when he caved and bought a magazine, finding Andrew and Neil piled in Exy gear to promote a product. They looked uncommitted and severe except when they were jostled together and shot from the side, candid, staring. 

It almost makes him miss the moments with the foxes when everything was as simple as watching Andrew’s face for the changes and catching the wave to the next game.

But it’s better to have the kind of work that he knows he does best, stockpiled for the rest of medical school and the rest of his life after that. It feels good to stretch on rubber gloves and distance himself from the worst sort of rot in the world. 

It feels good for his feet to throb and his head to twist itself into knots, and to come home to Katelyn, who always tries to wait up for him and never can. She passes out with her legs over the armrest of their secondhand couch and her hair fanned over the cushions. He kisses her awake more often than not.

He goes for runs, sometimes, like he never did in college. It’s when his own reflection makes his neck prickle and he thinks, god, he’s here. He’s never not here. If you’re a twin you’re a member of a club, and you’re constantly in uniform.

He gets stopped on the street and asked for his autograph, and he feels comforted to know that his “piss off” is gentler than whatever Andrew would have said. 

He sees his own face hoisted at pride, watches Andrew become half of a relationship that handcuffs exy to entire social movements, and it coaxes old fear into his blood. It takes some wrangling and undoing of rusted closed spigots before he realizes that he’s impressed, too. 

He hates Neil out of habit. He watches the sun make new colours with Katelyn’s hair at 5 am. He puts his alarm on snooze just so he can lie there with her. He likes that his life is a can on a string, and somewhere, tossed out into another state, in a high-rise with blackout curtains and an orange cat, Andrew has the other can.

funny how discussions about women’s anxieties wrt aging always focus on getting ‘ugly’ rather than like. dealing with our inevitable mortality like i guess we’ve found a fate worse than death ladies it’s called crows feet

If you're in the mood for angst with a sort of fluffy ending, maybe write about boggarts in eight year? I've always had this idea that maybe Draco would have his older self as boggart, because he's scared of the future and no one accepting him. (Possibly with only Harry seeing what that boggart means, while the other students just laugh bc they think Draco is scared of a retreating hair line) Idk Sorry this prompt is a mess

Holy fuck, I died at this prompt and then came back to life and then died all over again because of it. Ugh. Q U A L I T Y. I have no idea if this is what you had in mind, but I had SO MUCH FUN writing it!!! I am so sorry if this sucks lol I suck at editing and also proofreading and also like. Yeah. Anyways. You’re an angel.


The Boggart

He looked older. He was Draco, but he was weathered, the pristine glow of his high cheekbones now a muted grey, hair set a bit further back on his forehead, crows feet around the eyes that just looked… Dull. Everything about the Draco from the wardrobe was dull and grey, in fact, including the clothes he was wearing.

The boggart met Draco’s eyes with what looked like the remnants of a challenge, a war long lost, leaning forward and whispering something in his ear that made Draco stand even stiffer than usual. He looked down at his feet, eyes darting nervously from side to side as if to search for a way out, and everyone remained quiet, waiting to see when the scary part would happen. There was always a scary part with these bastards.

But Wardrobe Draco simply stood there, arms crossed, occasionally leaning forward to whisper something inaudibly in Real Draco’s ear, and Real Draco looked petrified. More terrified, Harry thought, than the time his own life had been at stake as he pointed his wand at Dumbledore because he had no other choice. He never had a fucking choice.

how would one tell the difference between a crow and a raven?

You might be surprised to learn there are a lot of different species of raven and crow! The taxonomic difference between a raven and a crow (that is, whether a species gets named of or the other) is size and lifespan rather than genetic grouping. When comparing the species most of us are most familiar with  – the American crow (C. brachyrhyncos) and common raven (C. corax), which will be the two I’m focusing on here – you can’t exactly tell the bird’s age most of the time, so if you have other animals or objects to compare the bird to, size is often the first clue. 

The common raven is is massive for a passerine. It’s the size of a red-tailed a hawk, with a wingspan over four feet. Crows, on the other hand, are typically about the size of an African grey parrot. Compare someone holding a crow vs someone holding a raven:

[sources: top, bottom]

And lemme tell ya, it’s one thing to READ about how big they are, but it’s another to SEE it.

If you see a corvid in flight and can’t get a bead on its proportions, the shape of the tail and flight feathers is another good identifier. A crow’s tail is triangular or fan-shaped, while a raven’s is wedge-shaped (ie the middle tail feathers are longest). Both have well-defined primaries, but a raven’s are much deeper and tend to spread wider. Ravens tend to soar a lot, too; crows are consistent flappers. 

[sources: left, right]

Finally, if you can get a good look at the head, the differences are pretty obvious. A raven has a beak that hooks at the end and is as long as its head (or in the case of a Chihuahuan raven, longer than!) while a crow’s beak is straighter, shorter, and lighter-looking in general. Both have nasal bristles, but the shape these bristles form is different due to beak size (a raven’s often looks squared off). Crows are kinda shiny and a bit fluffy; ravens are iridescent and have a very distinctive “beard” of shaggy feathers at their throats which bristles up like hackles when they call.

[sources: top, bottom]

Finally, their voices are a bit different – a crow’s flat, high caw vs a raven’s deep, resonating kronk – but both species have a very wide range of natural vocalisations and are accomplished mimics. [This video] has some great examples of the caw vs kronk sounds.

Hope that helps! o/

The power and importance of Wonder Woman is subtle too. I’m not saying this was the most important aspect of the movie, but I remember seeing so many older, middle aged women like Robin Wright on screen together looking beautiful and fierce. I remember seeing crow’s feet and getting excited about one day having them. I remember thinking they were beautiful and distinguishing. Like wow, this is what boys must feel like all the time. That aging is okay because you still get to be a “silver fox” etc., We got a taste of that ‘ability to age’ in this movie.

bear with me…

How old is Erwin?

Old enough to be sporting crows feet :)

Erwin’s age is unknown but most people seems to head canon him as being mid-to-late 30′s. The only hint we have is that canonically he’s younger than Mike. That isn’t much help since Mike’s age is also unknown.
