defaces

Golden sandals, made to be buried with a wife of Pharaoh Thutmose III, 15th century BCE. For much of his time as pharaoh, Thutmose was overshadowed by his stepmother and aunt Hatshepsut, who managed to hold onto power in Egypt despite the bias against women. After Hatshepsut died, Thutmose had many of the monuments to her defaced.

Me before Fantastic Beasts movie: I like how Ron and Harry add little comments to the book, it’s so like them, and it adds a comedic touch to what is, although an interesting read, rather a dry one. Haha, I can so imagine them being bored in class and doodling - this old Newt Scamander dude really did drag on a bit when he was writing this.

The Bun

For the anon who requested it

Maybe some wolfstar where Sirius is talking about growing his hair out over the summer and Remus is against it but when they come back Remus loves it? Only if you want to of course :)


  ‘God I look great today’ 

Sirius was, as per usual, standing shirtless in front of the mirror one Wednesday morning, carefully flexing and turning to admire himself in the reflection. Remus who was lying tangled in a mess of sheets, didn’t even look up before groaning. 

‘Sirius stop checking yourself out and close the window, its so cold.’ 

But Sirius wasn’t paying any attention and continued to pull faces into the mirror, now gently prodding his hair with his fingers.

 His mother had stuck him to chair for two hours during Christmas whilst she got a house elf to snip and chop away at his hair until it was only a centimetre long, much sorter than his usual waves. 

‘It’s so short now,’ he pouted ‘I can’t believe my own mother had defaced me in this way.. actually I can. But still!’ 

Suddenly he turned to admire the back of his head as Remus mumbled about dying of hypothermia unless Sirius closed the bloody window, but it fell on deaf ears as Sirius gasped.

 ‘You know what would really annoy that old bitch? If I grew it out. Like really long, maybe as far as my shoulders.’ 

This had gotten Remus’ attention, so he sat up at an alarming rate to stare at him. 

‘No Sirius’

 ‘But why? You have to admit if i charmed it the right way so she couldn’t cut it off again, she might get so frustrated she’ll just die. Plus, I think I would look fabulous.’

 ‘No don’t’

 Sirius frowned, not turning away from the mirror. ‘Why? You don’t think I’d look fabulous?’

 Remus clenched his jaw. ‘You know you always look amazing Sirius.. ‘ 

Sirius raised one eyebrow. ‘Then why not?’ ‘

Just don’t’ 

‘Why?’

 ‘Because I say so.’ 

‘Why?’

 ‘Listen to me-’ 

‘Why?’ 

‘UGH because if you did you would even bet-’ 

Remus caught himself just in time. He wouldn’t do it, he could not, and would not. The dorm could only handle so much of Sirius and James’ egos, and any more and Remus was sure they would all suffocate. 

Plus, how could he tell Sirius that Remus had the sneaking suspicion that if he grew his hair out Sirius would look even more like a chiselled god than beforehand and Remus might just die of pure lust from the sight of it, without revealing his not-so-platonic feelings for the pale boy. He had to control himself. But Sirius was now looking at Remus straight in the eye, a small smile growing on his lips.

 ‘Fuck off Black’ 

So Sirius turned back to the mirror with a full blown mischievous grin planted on his face and returned to admiring himself from every angle. 

‘I’d look hot wouldn’t I’ 

‘yes’ Remus thought. 

‘You would look like you always do Sirius. Just with longer hair, it wouldn’t be that much of a change and plus maybe it wouldn’t suit you, who knows. Your face shape may not be right for it and it may not frame your jaw line as well as shorter hair could and maybe the long hair will drown out your eyes or your ears could stick out oddly and-……’ Remus rolled his eyes. ‘I’m just talking to myself aren’t I. Your haven’t heard a word.’

 ‘What was that Rem?’ 

‘Shut the goddamn window Sirius.’ 


 Remus returned from the holidays with the last remains of his slight tan slowly fading away. James had come back with a six pack that he had spent of summer working on and wouldn’t stop showing of to anyone who would pay him a second of their time. Peter had gained a new dusting of freckles that suited his face very nicely. 

But Sirius. Sirius had come back to Hogwarts a new man. He had stuck to his word and oh my. His jet black hair came tumbling down his face resting gently on the tops of his shoulders, maintaining effortlessly flawless look as they sat there. As Remus had feared the soft curls framed his face like a work of art and his eyes contrasted beautifully with it. He looked more like perfection than Remus could ever have imagined.

‘Fuck my life’ 

Remus Lupin wasn’t the only one stunned by the transformation and various (most) students of all years had started to swoon over the boy, even more than usual, which Sirius had clearly noticed as was very much enjoying, much to James’ annoyance.

 ‘Like it then?’ Sirius grinned as he flicked the locks over his shoulder.

Remus merely huffed and went to find Lily and Sirius stood there with a confused expression on his face.

 That evening the welcome back party was in full swing in the Gryffindor common room and everyone was acceptably drunk singing loudly and swaying drunkenly to the amplified music playing out. Sirius was standing with James talking to some pretty Ravenclaws girls, looking disinterested and fidgety. 

Remus stood across the room casting sideways glances to the boy as his sipped on the fire whiskey Marlene had given him earlier. When he next glanced he didn’t seem to be able to take his eyes away, they seemed almost glued to that hair and that face and before he knew Sirius had locked eyes and was quickly making his way over, so Remus looked down into his drink and prayed he wouldn’t stay long. 

‘Why’d do that earlier?’ Sirius asked. 

‘What?’ 

‘Walk away when I asked you about the hair? You just left.’ Remus looked up into those grey eyes. Where they glistening? No. He’d just had to much to drink.

 ‘I-You-’

 ‘You know Rem, if you don’t like I, I’ll cut it off. I didn’t realise you were being serious. No pun intended.’ 

Remus snorted, but stopped himself from laughing. Sirius did look genuinely upset and was chewing his lip as his stood just feet away from him. God why did he have to have such nice lips.

 ‘Shut up Remus.’

 ‘What?’

 ‘I said it doesn’t look bad’ Remus mumbled. 

‘Oh. Okay..’ 

Sirius’ frown deepened and his hands moved to his head, but only halfway through did Remus realise what he was doing Sirius was pulling and tugging at the strands, slowly forming it into a messy bun placed on top of his head. Christ did it look good. Amazing in fact. Remus hadn’t thought that hair could improve anymore but here in front of him was the living proof, it was incredible, the loose strand dancing delicately on the edges of Sirius’ face. In fact all Remus could do was stand there staring open mouthed at the sight before him.

 ‘Remus.. are you oka-’

 ‘Fuck this.’

 Remus lips smacked quite heavily into Sirius’. In desperation he had even managed to drop his drink as his hands wrapped around the back of Sirius’ head pulling him in closer to deepen the kiss. 

After the momentary shock and second to adjust to the drunkenness of the kiss, Sirius grabbed Remus around the waist kissing him back with all his force. Shit he had wanted to do that for so long. Who knew just a couple inches of hair could make all his dreams come true.

 ‘AYYYY FUCK YESSSS FRANK, PETER, MARY YOU GUYS OWE ME 20 SICKLES I WAS RIGHT YOU BITCHESSSSSS’ 

‘Potter….’

Thoughts on Yuri on Ice

I am writing this post because of an incident that happened recently. Last week, I wanted to share Yuzuru’s greatness and all to my friends and I introduced them to Yuzuru Hanyu. I practically forced them to watch his Sochi performances and they were of course very impressed because yuzuru is great. So they decided to look at the comments section and I was expecting to see the usual technical stuff and opinions on his skating technique but BOOM IT’S ALL YURI ON ICE. One particular friend got really confused and she was like why does everybody in the comments say he is yuri. I got really shocked and started scrolling through the defaced comments section and everything I see is about Yuri on Ice. 

Well, don’t get me wrong now. Let me say here that I AM A HARDCORE FAN OF YURI ON ICE. REALLY HARDCORE YOU HAVE NO IDEA the yaoi. I think I even have a tumblr post about it somewhere. Also, I do understand that it is inevitable to relate Yuri On Ice to Yuzuru Hanyu because, well, Yuzuru Hanyu is one of the most iconic sportsmen in figure skating. 

BUT I just hope that certain even more hardcore fans would not invade Yuzuru’s personal life. When I saw swarms of YOI fans commenting on Yuzuru’s Sochi performances about stuff like ‘YURI ON ICE!!!!!!!!!’ or ‘YURI IN REAL LIFE’ I was honestly quite annoyed.

^Here are just some YOI comments I saw at the top of the comments section. And look at the number of likes. An irrelevant comment about an anime is enough to garner >400 likes and the beauty of the performance is just thrown away. 

One particular comment I saw by a fan was saying “it’s not disrespectful in any way. We’re all meaning it a good way. So what’s exactly the problem?”.

THE PROBLEM LIES HERE:  Because of these irrelevant comments, the performance and Yuzuru’s skills are forgotten. Furthermore, this gives an extremely negative impression of Yuzuru Hanyu on other ice skating fans. I mean, there are many people out there who love Yuzuru for his talent and there are people who genuinely wish to find out more about his performances. I cannot imagine what they will think when they see comments squealing about an anime show instead of perhaps more sane opinions on solely the performance (e.g. technical aspects). 

And yes, I understand that most of the commenters are taking on an identity as an anime fan but do consider the perspectives of non-anime fans too - People who truly wish to appreciate Yuzuru Hanyu and the sport of figure skating. I do not care how you guys found out about Yuzuru and I think that it’s perfectly fine to be introduced to him via anime, but I am concerned about the continuous spamming under Yuzuru’s videos. 

^^ THIS COMMENT GOT ME RIGHT THERE. 

Remember, Yuzuru Hanyu is a real person. I hope people like him truly because of his ability and skills and not because he’s the so-called ‘yuuri katsuki in real life’.

P.S. I personally am a great fan of Yuri On Ice but I cannot stand fans who keep spamming irrelevant comments under Yuzuru’s videos. However, I do understand that not all YOI fans are like that though. I’ve seen a couple of users who are fans of Yuri on Ice and they have written utterly beautiful comments about Yuzuru and figure skating. As I mentioned earlier, it is perfectly fine to watch Yuzuru’s performances because of that anime and I’m really happy that more and more people are introduced to Yuzuru and his sport :) So here’s a shoutout to fans who genuinely appreciate Yuzuru and figure skating, regardless of how you came to know about him <3. 

OK SORRY FOR MY RANTING AND BYE

Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch NYC Memorial Park Defaced With Swastikas, Pro-Donald Trump Graffiti | Billboard

Since Donald Trump’s election last week, there has been an uptick in the amount of “biased-based attacks” across the nation. One of the latest victims is the the New York City memorial park in honor of the late Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch.

The Adam Yauch Park in Brooklyn Heights was defaced with graffiti of swastikas and the words “Go Trump” on Friday (Nov. 18). Yauch, like the rest of his Beastie Boys bandmates, was Jewish.

Defacing My Book

So I deliberately defaced my copy of Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. Normally, I try to keep my books in pristine bookstore condition but recently I watched a video that swayed my convictions.

There are so many books in perfect condition out there, but doing this makes the book more yours, it adds so much personal touch to it.

Besides, I have always loved art in books. So why not make my own?

Note: The words are song lyrics. The lyrics on Eleanor’s side in from ‘She’s a Rainbow’ by The Rolling Stones and the the lyrics on Park’s side is from ‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand’ by The Beatles

Today, my ex defaced my car. She didn’t key it or slash my tires. She posted “TRUMP 2016” bumper stickers all over it. I don’t know what glue they use, but it’s been 2 hours and I haven’t gotten any of them off. FML

LMAO

ABC removed “The 100″ from her IMDB credits and some Cl/xa stan is saying it’s because (this is a direct quote btw):

“ Why young women actors shy away from this attention from an enthusiastic gay fanbase, I will tribute to the culture foisted on us by the man cis-driven plots and stories throughout tv and movies.”

Or maybe she’s shying away from your fanbase because…you hacked her significant others phone, exposed personal private information and thoroughly embarrassed her?

Or maybe because…a large portion of your fandom sends lots of racist hate to people she actually knows and is friends with (Bob, Chris, Jarod).

Or maybe because you flood her other shows with “Lxa Deserved Better.”

Or because you deface property in her name. 

Or because you only recognize her as L/xa and not for any of her other work. 

I think a lot about the idea behind Delilah’s statues, how aside from putting all this effort into defacing almost everything bearing Jessamine’s name (her portraits, her statues, her grave, turning anyone she even suspects of comparing Jessamine to her, into stone), she puts no lesser effort into putting her own imagery everywhere.

This is such an obvious counter-blow towards Delilah’s life as a barely existent child who was denied any kind of visibility, and aside from her paintings that we do encounter within the games, I’m convinced that Delilah also make a huge amount of self-portraits throughout her life. From simple daily sketches not unlike those she made of Emily, to fully finished pieces preceding “The World As It Should Be” in their wish-fulfilling nature.

Additionally, I’m sure she made a complete portrait of Jessamine, at least once, for the pure sake of talking to it, bitterly, for half an hour, before dumping an entire bucket of black paint across it. Because somehow it’s more satisfying to do this to one single image of her sister that is correct. She hasn’t seen Jessamine in many years, and yet I’m sure she’d probably feel that all the imagery present across the empire is somehow not quite right, they didn’t see her right, whereas she, Delilah, can. She’d believe her vision, her perspective, is unbiased, unlike theirs. She’d draw the right one, the correct one, at least once, completely out of spite.
