Fight Club (1999) - David Fincher.

You’re not your job. You’re not how much money you have in the bank. You’re not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet. You’re not your fucking khakis. You’re the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.

hi babe!! what are your headcanons for a zarry christmas au! their first christmas together as an official couple :)

  1. They spend it at Harry’s. Christmas isn’t as much of a deal for the Malik’s, so it’s an easy compromise. It’s a bit weird for Zayn–Harry’s house is so quiet compared to his, so many fewer people–but it’s nice. To see this part of Harry too. 
  2. Harry forces Zayn into a lot of ugly christmas sweaters, then pouts because somehow Zayn pulls them off, and it’s not fair. He decides the only solution to this is for neither of them to be wearing sweaters at all, or shirts for that matter. Zayn does not object. 
  3. They spend Christmas eve curled up together on the couch in front of the fire under one blanket, long after everyone else has gone to bed. They don’t talk much, just lie there, Zayn’s fingers combing through Harry’s hair, Harry’s hand heavy on Zayn’s thigh, and watch the fire play against the ornaments on the tree, until they get so tired they’re barely able to move, and shuffle upstairs together. 
  4. Harry wakes up first, in the morning. There are no kids, so they all sleep in a bit, and he can watch Zayn sleep, in his bed, his cheeks flushed with sleep. There are no kids now, but Harry can imagine doing this for years, waking up Christmas morning with kids bouncing on them, Harry getting up first because Zayn certainly won’t. It’s not the first time he’s imagined their kids, but he loves the picture of it, and he loves it more when Zayn’s eyes open and he smiles to see Harry looking. 
  5. Zayn goes all out on presents. He loves spoiling Harry, and Harry loves to be spoiled, and it’s not like either of them are hurting for money. So there are designer scarves and a new camera and some records, and of course all sorts of things for Harry’s family. But Harry’s favorite is the painting he’d done himself, of the two of them. Zayn knows it’s not the best, and tells Harry so, but Harry just beams up at Zayn and kisses him hard, because it means more than anything else in the pile. 
  6. Zayn, however, is distracted, because Harry knew what Zayn wanted, and so among the new art supplies and some designer clothes of his own and comic books is a brand new puppy, wagging it’s tail up at Zayn. Harry thinks honestly, he wouldn’t need anything more for his Christmas than the sight of Zayn cuddling the puppy on his lap, talking excitedly to Harry about what they’ll name it, what they’ll buy it, because it’s a commitment to them together forever, and that’s what he wants most.

Send me an AU+pairing (or one of my fics, if you want) and I’ll give you 5+ headcanons for it!

The rouge was pacing back and fourth on the rooftop of the cathedral. All the toxin he has planted in place, he just has to hit a button now. There are a lot of rouges planning attacks on account of the holiday, so why shouldn’t Jonathan join in.

Though, he has to wait for a moment of calm before attacking. He just happens to glance up at the sky for a moment. Whoa, it’s actually kind of clear out tonight.

Scarecrow climbs up a little higher to get a better look at the sky. Strange how when one blocks out the noise and looks in certain areas, Gotham actually looks kind of pretty at night. Too bad he’s about to disturb the hell out of the peace.

anonymous asked:

Doran is more humbled by the "Fire and Blood" speech than Arianne? Give me a break! That's where Arianne learns that Doran has had a plan all along but that she almost fucked it up. I agree with you that they both realize their mistakes and reconcile, but to say she's "more humbled" is just pure fangirlism.

Did you even read what I linked? Here it is again.

Also the idea that Arianne “almost fucked it up” is hilarious, because the reason she acted totally had nothing to do with Doran keeping her in the dark for too long based on his own misconceptions.

Arianne’s misunderstanding of Doran is what caused the Queenmaker to fail, but Doran’s misunderstanding of Arianne is what caused the Queenmaker to take place at all. He learns that he is as much responsible for his plans nearly being ruined as she was. And more so, when Doran speaks in his voice “full of grief,” it is because he realizes that his fractured relationship with his daughter was not because of her “nature”; she didn’t act out because she was a particularly difficult teen who just wanted to have fun and not take things seriously. It was because she was deeply hurting and felt that her father had hated her, a feeling his actions through the years only solidified.

I’m of the very weird mindset, btw, that this wasn’t anyone’s “fault.” That they both made choices and acted the way they did based on reasonable, yet inaccurate assumptions, which could have been solved if not for their shared, Shakespearean flaw of their inability to communicate. I do put a little more at Doran’s feet because he is the parent though. And especially after Arianne tried to sneak into Highgarden at 16–like it was outright dangerous of him to keep her in the dark at that point. But it’s understandable, you know? To him, Arianne’s behavior demonstrated that she wasn’t the type who could be trusted, when in reality she was acting out and hoping that she’d get yelled at for metaphorically fucking the pool boy because at least that would mean he cared.

So yeah, I’m going to say he was humbled, if nothing else because the conversation resulted in Arianne getting everything she ever wanted and more, and Doran was outright defending the Queenmaker plot to Obara in the chapter. Not to mention we got this out of him during the “fire and blood” conversation:

“Dorne will be yours. You have my word on that, if my word still has any meaning for you.”

He knows how deeply he fucked up. And Doran works overtime after this point to show how much he cares for and trusts Arianne. Honestly, The Watcher is outright gushing with their exchanged “secret smiles” and all that.

“It is too dangerous. You are my heir, the future of Dorne. Your place is by my side. Soon enough, you’ll have another task.”

And then (MILD TWOW SPOILER)

Look at what he does as her off on her mission in her sample chapter:

She did not shed a tear. Arianne Martell was a princess of Dorne, and Dornishmen did not waste water lightly. It was a near thing, though. It was not her father’s kisses nor his hoarse words that made her eyes glisten, but the effort that brought him to his feet, his legs trembling under him, his joints swollen and inflamed with gout. Standing was an act of love. Standing was an act of faith.

(emphasis mine)

I’m not crying, you’re crying.

But you know what anon, I’ll give it to you that maybe I should have said Doran was “more” humbled–it was probably equal. Because the entire point of Arianne/Doran is that their arcs are a perfect parallel, and they both came to realize that they needed each other on a political and personal level.

Horror!AU: They say that when a spirit was unable to move on and had to stay for so long, they became dark and evil entity. Lee Unwin could not find anything more correct than that. He knew he was bad, horrible and evil, but he was powerful and the ruler of the Dark World. He had to watch Michelle and Eggsy suffering after his death, especially Eggsy. Even after becoming a Kingsman, Eggsy was not happy because Harry Hart, the bastard who his son loved with everything, died.

So Eggsy was not happy in that cruel living world, then why not bring his soul to his own world in order to make his son happy? That was what Lee had thought as he pretended to be Harry and stole his son’s soul little by little every day

The problem is Harry bloody ‘Galahad’ Hart is not dead. He’s alive and going through therapies. After he’s done, the older man immediately went to see Eggsy, because if anyone deserves to know first, it would always be the boy he loves.

That’s why on a beautiful day, he found Eggsy lying unconscious on the floor of his house, having fallen into a deep coma with no apparent or logical reason. He immediately contacted Merlin, and both of the men, along with the help from Roxy and Percival, tried to figure out why. When the right answer came up, they were faced with another problem: how to get Eggsy back and make Lee move on. Harry Hart is determined more than ever in his life, to clean his own mess and take his love back

Lee is angry and furious, because there was a tiny part of Eggsy’s soul acknowledged that Harry was still alive and clinged to the living world strongly and desperately. That and Harry’s sabotage to his plan makes him unable to drag his beloved son to his world. Why can’t they understand that Lee only wanted to make Eggsy happy? Why did they have to be so fucking stupid like this? Lee thought as he used his power to physically harm the Kingsman agents and mentally destroy them in their dreams

Do you ever have days where you say, “I’m going to do something soft and neutral”, and then mysteriously a rainbow throws up on your face? Yeah, today was one of those days. Also, yes, I matched my eyebrows to my lipstick. It’s fun, you should try it.

Prompt: awesome

One mile outside Alexandria, at the mouth of a creek bed, was a rock formation deep in the wall of a hillside. Enid had found it and shown Carl, who in turn had shown Michonne, who had taken Maggie there to show her, who then showed Carol. It was a beautiful, elliptical cavern, about twenty feet in diameter, with moss-covered walls that stretched nearly thirty feet high. Grass and vines grew in around the edges of a natural skylight where the earth had fallen into the chamber.

Carol could see where rain and other water sources had poured into the lower floor of the formation, forming a large pool that had then fed the creek beyond the formation’s ground-floor entrance. Though the creek was now a sluggish mud trench, the pool in the center of the formation remained. It was only a few feet deep, with sand and dark rocks forming the base. It was just enough to cool your feet as you sat on a nearby rock: which was exactly Carol’s favorite thing to do in this place.

It was quiet here. The acoustics of the rock walls made every drop of water, every shift in the rocks, every breeze over the skylight echo throughout the cavern. She loved to watch the shadows shift on the walls as the sun moved overhead, loved to see the rays of light dance across the water’s agitated surface. It was peaceful, calming, a solace that she sought out when Alexandria became too noisy or when her mind needed some reprieve.

It was no secret place, but she seemed to be the only one who regularly visited the spot. She always came alone, but after the horror of the past few days, being alone wasn’t the most desirable or safest option. Besides, Daryl could use some of this too now.

“It’s nice,” was all he said to describe it when she brought him there.

Carol was happy to find her familiar spot near the pool: a long flat rock that spent most of the day being warmed by the sun through the skylight. She slipped off her shoes and dipped her feet in the water, reclining back on the warm rock surface, watching him out of her periphery as he poked around.

There wasn’t much to say. Recent events in Alexandria had cost them sleep, bullets, and loved ones. The physical damage was still going on, and in-between the funerals and digging of new graves, sometimes one just had to escape for a while.

After a few minutes of exploring the space, Daryl made his way over to where she was, mechanically mimicking her position. When he lay beside her, getting comfortable and staring up at the rock walls surrounding them, enclosing them, almost protecting them from the outside world, he sighed heavily and found her hand. It was the kind of exhale that came up from the bones and was pushed out like an exorcism. Carol intertwined her fingers with his, not saying a word.

They lay like that long enough for Carol to see the shadows from the sun move from one cluster of stones to another, usually a sign that at least a few hours had passed. Her body felt heavy, and she slipped in and out of a light doze during that time. Daryl shifted, seeming to jog out of a similar state, and he gave her a hand a squeeze.

“It’s awesome.” He corrected his earlier statement. “Let’s come back tomorrow too.”

She tightened her grasp on his hand in return, a small smile on her lips. “I’d like that.”

taylorswift hey Taylor!❤️ I’m Callie and this is my outfit for your 1989 show in Seattle on August 8! (I’ll be sitting in section 117, row JJ). 
anyway, I’ve been working on this outfit for a while now, it’s taken me a couple months to fully plan out, research, buy supplies for, and design my entire outfit. a lot of work went into it, but it’s totally worth it! I went with the lyric “this love is glowing in the dark” to base my entire outfit off of because I will be literally glowing in the dark at the show (hence the name tag that says “Hello my name is… This Love – I’ll be decked out in tonsa glow sticks from head to toe. the lyrics on my shirt are actually outlined in glow in the dark puff paint ;)) AND because This Love is one of my favorites off 1989 :) what I’ve written on the leggings I’m wearing are a bunch of my favorite lyrics/quotes from you. out of the entire process, that’s what took me the longest to do, and I’m totally happy with how they turned out :)
I know this is already pretty long, but I can’t post this until I’ve told you how much you mean to me. I’ve been a big fan of yours ever since little 9 year old me decided to buy your fearless album in 2008. I fell in love with you automatically and I have been by your side ever since. growing up with you has been such a wonderful, magical experience and I wouldn’t have it any other way. you and your music has helped me through some really hard times in my life, so I thank you so much for that. 
lately, things have been really tough. life has been throwing so many curveballs at me at once and it’s been really hard to deal with. but having you by my side, by knowing that you’re by my side, makes things a lot easier to deal with. I’m so grateful to have you in my life! I love you so much Taylor, and I always will.
“And you know, we’re on each other’s team…”
Forever by your side, Callie

Skininator tutorial~

I just showed how to edit the face skin on the video, so now I’ll explain the rest!

You’ll need the .dds tone ramp (lighter to darker colors on the vertical) and .png tone ramp, the one that you’ll use to recognize the skin on your game (also on horizontal). 

Game Skintoneramps download - x

After the body, you’ll make the scalp. I don’t put any details on it, so I just get the color of the top part of the face and paint the whole scalp with that color.

All skins download - x

Then, You’ll need skininator (x)

Let’s go to the tutorial:

Like most people, I was like OOH LEON DARK EMO PRINCE (based on his smirking profile pic, serious face and the whole “punishment is death” in the trailer) but his profile in a mag says he’s very kind so I was ARE YOU SURE?

Playing the game, he’s an absolute adorkable cutie PROMO MATERIALS AND TRAILERS ARE ALL LIES

He clearly looks up to you since he has said that line in the first pic at least thrice. When you tell him his robes are inside-out, he goes all EH?? and “Wawa… you two should’ve told me earlier if you noticed it!” and runs off. When papa orders you to kill Hoshido ninjas (I forgot their names already, but they’re playable characters… in the Hoshido route I guess), and you can’t, so he pretends to kill them (I remember he lowered his magic and probably whisked them away before nii-san lets them escape) to protect you from papa and that his other sisters will be sad if you get depressed xD

SO FAR I AM NOT ABLE TO RECRUIT HIM YET HOW LONG MUST I WAIT

So my dash is kinda dead due to the fact a lot of people I followed have gone inactive, so could you reblog this if you’re cool with RPing with the following.
A. A mage muse who has frozen her aging process, and possesses telekinesis.
B. A dark souls mage based around headcanons of the country of Venn, and has created a new form of magic (In a sense)

Thanks in advance!
