IMAGINE Waking up beside a sleepy jungkook who pulled out an all nighter with you the night before . You slightly nudge his shoulder and slide your fingers through his luscious brown hair to wake him up. After a few minutes he finally feels your fingers on his scalp and he shots up from bed. You’re looking at him in adoration while the boy is lost as hell from what’s going on. He’s desoriented and cannot seem to open his eyes at all . He does not know how in the world he ended up in the same bed as you in this location.His bed hair is sticking out in all directions and his lips are parted while his eyes remain closed. He stares at you with his half lidded eyes for two seconds before he chooses to bury his face back onto his pillow.He believes that this might be a dream and that he should go back to sleep to see you again .You choose to pull his sleeping figure in your arms and he suddenly hugs your waist while burying his face on your chest as he’s sleeping soundly. Jungkook is too tired to even function and you find this side of him too cute for this world.

Pinescone Week Day 03 : Gnomeking/Prince AU

“Dipper, There’s no need to stand like this or  say all those poems you’re telling me!” 

“Is it how we have to behave in front of the Royalty ?~~”

(I have this  headcanon that when Dipper met  the Gnomeprince-or King, up to you-, he instantly fell in love with him. During many days, he would come and litteraly courting him and Wirt would be all shy and desoriented because never ever in this word and life time someone had done that for him before Dipper.And after  many month of flirting and intense poetry, Wirt would finally made him his counsor.  -God I have to write something about it- )

And yes I got lazy with the background but I’m in uni so I don’t have much time for it !+ I wanted to made  Wirt’s cloat and hat a bit more fancy because HE’S ROYAL )

Censorship in Estado Novo

A dispatch describing one of Simone de Beauvoir’s work with the stamp demonstrating that it was forbidden, scribbled all over with the infamous blue pencil. It specially enhances Simone’s leftist and ‘attack on the right’.

Every newspiece, every editorial, column, TV show, radio program, book, panflet, every bit of writing and every image that came out to the public in Portugal - aside from the clandestine press, such as the newspaper Avante! - fell under the hard hand of the censorship comissions. The infamous blue pencil was known for cutting out or even completely censor bits of writing, from news to books.

The 1933 Constitution stated simultaneously that «free thought of any form» was a right, and later on, that «special laws» should regulate the freedom of expression. This is further explain in Art. 3, where the use of 'censorship’ (albeit this word is never employed) is explained: to «stop the perversion of public opinion in its role of social strenght and should be exercised so to defend it from every factor that desorient it against truth, justice, moral and good administration and common good, and to avoid that the fundamental principles of society’s organization be attacked». These criteria, of course, were previously established by the government. From 1944 onwards, the censorship organization was officially under SNI - Secretariado Nacional de Informação, otherwise known as the secretary in charge of propaganda.

As António de Oliveira Salazar stated himself: «Politically, only what the public knows exists».

This censorship affected as far as education. Children’s books and school books, in fact, remained the same throughout 48 years. The Censorship services were under the idea that «it seemes desirable that portuguese children be taught, not as citizens of the world, in preparation, but as portuguese children that will no longer be children, but will still be portuguese».

Similarly, books were subjected to being revised by censorship, but could be aprehended after being published. A list 900 authors total were forbidden in Portugal, among them: Jorge Amado, Miguel Torga, Karl Marx, Aquilino Ribeiro, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, José Cardoso Pires, Urbano Tavares Rodrigues, and many, many others.

An example of how censorship worked can be seen in this news bit, to be published in O Século newspaper.:

It announces the return of Humberto Delgado, who ran for office in a scham election that resulted not only in his loss, but his consequent assassination. It reads “The return to Lisbon of Humberto Delgado gave place to protests that resulted in several incidents and warming protests on behalf of the supporters of our chairman [Salazar]”. However, two expressions are cut out: “enthusiastic” and “of sympathy”. Which abruptly changes the context. So originally, the message read: “The return to Lisbon of Humberto Delgado gave place to enthusiastic manifestations(1) of sympathy that resulted in several incidents and warming protests on behalf of the supporters of our chariman”. Bu censoring these two expressions, not only do the supporters of Humberto Delgado come out as violent, but on the contrary, those who support Salazar appear gentle and warm. You can also see the stamp on the lower left corner which reads “Censorship Services, Authorized with Cuts”.

(1) In portuguese, the word 'manifestação’ equally means a manifestation (of feeling, etc) or a protest. The meaning is in here changed in the context of the removal of said expressions.
