You were tired. Spending the whole day at the theme park that was in town for the week wasn’t your ideal date, but you did it for Peter. It made him happy, so it made you happy. Too tired to drive all the way back to your house, you chose to stay with Peter for the night. You sighed as the hot water of the shower poured over you, letting the relaxation finally set in after a long day.

You stayed under the water for a few minutes longer than necessary, revelling in the calmness. When you finally got out, you shivered as you left the warmth the shower provided. You looked up from the ground to grab a towel and screamed at what you saw. “Peter!”

You jumped back in the shower quickly, closing the curtain behind you. “Oh my god!” You heard him yell, and you stared with wide eyes at the white curtain you were gripping with wet hands. “I’m sorry! I just came to grab my-”

“Peter, please get out,” you interrupted him, feeling the blood rush to your cheeks.

“Yeah, of cour- yeah, yes, yeah,” he stumbled over his words, and you were sure his eyes were as wide as yours. You heard him trip backwards and knock something over, and he cursed under his breath. “I’m sorry!”

“Pete,” you said again. You heard him hum and the door slammed behind him. You let out a breath that you didn’t realize you were holding. You peeked your head behind the curtain to look into the rest of the bathroom, just to make sure there were no surprises left for you. You quickly jumped out and grabbed a towel, wrapping it around you.

You got dressed and dried your hair, willing yourself to open the door and stand face-to-face with your boyfriend. When you turned the knob and threw the door open, you jumped when Peter whipped to face you. His cheeks were as red as yours, and his eyes were wide as they looked at you.

“I’m so sorry,” he blurted out as you took a step closer to him nervously. “I know that you don’t- that we’re not- that we decided to- and- I’m sorry for invading your privacy.”

He bit his lip, and you shook your head, smiling slightly. You were in love with such a respectful boy. You admired him for that. “It’s alright, Peter. It was an accident.”

He stepped forward to hug you, and you laughed, although your cheeks were still beat red. He wrapped his arms around your waist while yours went around his neck, and your cheeks were pressed together. The two of you stood there in silence for a few moments, embracing each other, when Peter spoke again.

“Well, today’s been a fun day.”

You laughed, eyebrows rising on your forehead. “Walking in on me naked is not my idea of fun! I don’t care what you say!”

“I- I mean, excluding that, obviously, like-”

Peter’s eyes were wide when he pulled back, and you laughed again. “I was joking, calm down.”

He breathed out deeply, looking away with a clenched jaw. He shook his head, and he was clearly flustered. “Shut up,” he muttered, keeping his eyes anywhere but on you.

“Make me,” an eyebrow rose on your forehead, and his head didn’t budge. But you saw his jaw clench tighter. You might as well would have a little more fun as he was already so flustered.

“(Y/N),” he murmured, warning you to stop talking. His cheeks grew impossibly redder. “You don’t know how badly I want to kiss you right now.”

“Try me,” you responded, and you were growing flustered yourself at his outwardness. “How badly?”

When he turned his head to look you in the eye with a determined expression, you thought you were making the wrong choice by instigating him like this. Instead of answering with words, he leaned closer to you. His nose grazed yours, and you tilted your head upwards the littlest bit. Your lips barely didn’t touch.

“I dare you,” you whispered suddenly after a few long moments of silence.

“Dare me?” Peter responded, a hint of a question to his voice. One eyebrow twitched on his forehead.

“I dare you, to kiss me,” you leaned forward just slightly, and your lips seemed so close, yet so far away. You waited for Peter to close the final gap.

And when he did, you tried not to smirk.

I had no idea what to write for this one, guys. So I’m sorry cuz it sucks. But let me know what you guys think?? Requests are open :)

The Creator vs. The Created - A Theory About Prometheus, Alien: Covenant and the Xenomorph

Alien: Covenant spoilers ahead!

Alien: Covenant is one hundred percent a Prometheus sequel and that will either help or hinder your enjoyment of it, as I mentioned in my mini spoiler-free review. The biggest theme running throughout this movie is definitely creation, more specifically, the creation of life. I also feel that the theme beyond creation is being unable to control what you have made. There’s a lot going on for a movie with the deceivingly simple, bare-bones premise of ‘Where did the Xenomorph come from?’. Prometheus and Alien: Covenant have far more to say than that, of course. Alien: Covenant is just the first stepping stone toward the perfect organism we see in Alien. The creature has got quite a way to go. 

In Prometheus we learn that the Engineers created humanity. Humanity, in turn, create the synthetics - artificial persons. David, an artificial person, firstly infects Holloway. Holloway impregnates Shaw, who has been unable to conceive naturally, which leads to the Trilobite creature. The Trilobite impregnates and gestates the Deacon within the body of the last Engineer.

We’ve seen in Alien that the artificial people can ‘malfunction’, as Burke so delicately puts it, which goes to show that no matter how human (David) or less-than-human (Walter, the synthetic aboard the Covenant) the corporations make the synthetics they still can be unpredictable and, in some cases, uncontrollable.  

Prometheus and Alien: Covenant go even further into showing just how dangerous rogue robotics can be. David-8 is the beginning of the end for the Prometheus crew, as I mentioned, he deliberately infects Holloway and seems content with letting the final Engineer bomb earth with the pathogen. He’s seemingly obsessed with the pathogen and its properties, curious even to the detriment of the people he has been manufactured to serve. There’s something off about David even before he becomes thoroughly disillusioned with humanity. Walter says that the David line was discontinued due to their creativity disturbing people. Humanity is literally dialling back their creations, devolving them into what David sees as lesser beings. He very clearly sees himself as above humanity.

We see David and Mr. Weyland’s initial conversation about creation in the opening of Alien: Covenant and it seems fitting that David is with Mr. Weyland at the conception of the journey to find humanity’s makers and at the end of Weyland’s life where he is killed by the very thing he sought. David only continues on his warped path looking to make his own life, completely removed from any ties he had to humanity previously.  

In short, the Engineers created humanity and then sought to destroy us. Humanity created synthetic people and then, when concerned with what they had done, made them less like people. David contributed to the creation of a new lifeform and became obsessed with the idea of surpassing humanity, his creators, and then the genocide idea occurs.

The Engineers were perhaps unable to control humanity so they decided humanity should end. David takes it upon himself, as revealed in Covenant, to put an end to the Engineers by bombing their home world with the very pathogen they made to destroy humanity. David becomes more powerful than those which made his makers by wiping them out. Creator-versus-Created is a vicious cycle which repeats itself again and again and again throughout these two movies. 

Fast forward ten years and David has been tampering with genetics. Without more Engineers to seed worlds with humanity, David just needs one key element to finish the job and end the species he sees as desperately grasping at the stars. He creates a very familiar form of life in Alien: Covenant, however, I think there’s far more to this story. I believe that these aren’t the same creatures which will terrorize Ellen Ripley twenty years down the timeline.

Once David and Shaw arrive on the Engineer’s home world, after David has presumably killed them all and created his necropolis, he kills Shaw and begins to use her corpse to manufacture life by splicing the pathogen and human DNA. A colonisation ship, the Covenant, land after hearing a human-generated signal. There are spores around the signal’s source which are either occurring naturally thanks to the pathogen in the environment or they have been manufactured by David, either way they infect crew of the Covenant and create pale, fleshy creatures called Neomorphs. 

When he first sees it, David is captivated by the Neomorph. He is unconcerned by the corpse it has left in its wake, instead David sees a creature he has had a hand in bringing into the world and he clearly thinks he can control it. This is the first relative success he has seen, this is pre-Xenomorph but still a hybrid of human and pathogen. Maybe he really could control it if it wasn’t gunned down. David explains to Captain Oram later on that he has made something, his experiments have been a success. The Neomorph was a surprise, and a welcome one at that, but he has something far more sinister in store for the Covenant.

It is immediately clear that David set a trap and then he simply waited for humanity come and trigger it. David explains to Captain Oram that his successful creations have been dormant, waiting for something living, something human, to awaken them. The fleshy, ovoid eggs with skeletal Facehuggers have been laying in wait and Captain Oram becomes host to the very first Xenomorph… or something similar. David later explains to Walter that he does not think that humanity, their creators, are fit to continue expanding into the stars.  What is his solution? A perfect organism fit to wipe entire species clean. A genocide.

The Xenomorph born from Oram is very, very different to the ones we see twenty years later in Alien. It’s almost fully formed at chestbursting stage, complete with limbs, and it is noticeably more lanky. The Alien’s lifecycle is sped up considerably and it is both skittish and aggressive. There’s no hiding in wait picking off people one-by-one, this Xenomorph is feral and a ‘fast food’ variety of Alien. It’s launching itself openly into the fray, an assault warrior which is reckless and without finesse. It’s not there to take hosts, it’s there to destroy. David has a slight influence over it which is seen just after it has burst when it mimics his movements. The flicker of rebellion quickly rears its head when the Alien breaks a camera David is using to monitor it aboard the Covenant.

After it is killed, David is clearly disappointed that his ‘perfect organism’ failed to eliminate the entire crew of the Covenant, you can read it all over his face, and I think that’s because David hasn’t created the perfect organism at all, not yet. The entire recurring theme seems to be that you cannot control what you create, not indefinitely, and it is dangerous to try. The original Alien movies stress that the Xenomorph is highly volatile and, no matter how much Weyland-Yutani want it as a weapon, they will never, ever be able to control it. Its arrival on Earth would signal the end of a species: humanity.

I fully believe that the other Alien prequels will see David trying to perfect his prototype Xenomorphs until he develops them too far. He’ll do what humanity did with him and witness as his creations surpass him, however, it will be far too late to dial back what he has made. The Xenomorphs will begin to take on a life of their own, something he has been unable to predict. They’ll evolve, creating a queen, and begin advancing at their own pace, adapting to all manner of hosts and moving far beyond anything David can ever hope to keep within his grasp. Rather than specifically being engineered to eradicate humanity they’ll adapt to be in a position to wipe out entire galaxies.

At some point in the twenty years following Alien: Covenant the true Xenomorphs will somehow escape containment aboard one of the Engineer ships, the cargo bay full of eggs will be intact as the ship crashes onto a desolate moon designated LV-426. The last act of the ship’s pilot will be to send a permanent beacon warning people to stay away because the thing growing in its chest is far too dangerous to ever be unleashed upon the world. Humanity, in its ever curious way, will of course set foot on that moon and one of the greatest sci-fi horror stories will play out in deep space until the Last Survivor of the Nostromo takes on the Perfect Organism across the stars.

My Clexa Con Experience

I have taken a few days between the Con ending and now, I figured it would give me time to process what exactly happened that magical weekend… Turns out, it only made the job harder.

To articulate what happened, what I and many who attended the Con experienced- is near to impossible to do without sounding cheesy or ideological. But it was. That’s exactly what it was.

We created a space where everyone was accepted. We created a space where people of all ages, races, sexual orientation, gender identity, and belief system felt loved and accepted. Above all, we created a safe space where people could be vulnerable without fear of judgement. For those three days we had created a sort of Utopua for ourseves; no one fought, everyone was respectful, there was constructive conversations about race, representation, and how we could make our world a better place.

I arrived to Bally’s not expecting much, maybe 200-300 people- what I was met with was a convention center filled and a line that went on way past my wildest imagination. I picked up my camera, slapped on my “staff” badge, and I got to work.

Walking around the convention center I was met with so many beautiful faces. I tried to strike up a conversation with everyone I met before I take the picture- you can look in the eyes of anyone I had taken a picture with over that weekend. It’s my firm belief the difference between a good shot and a great shot is the relationship you build between a subject and yourself, you can see it in their eyes exactly what they’re thinking… If they like you or not, if they’re comfortable or not, if they want to be there or not.

I hope when my photos come out you can see what I saw through that lens… A group of amazing, passionate, beautiful women from all walks of life and all places.

Now getting to what I assume all of you have read this far for: Yes, Katherine, Dominique, Natasha, Elise, Elizabeth, Rachel, Zoie, Sarah, Amy, Jasika, and everyone are some of the nicest, most sincere people I’ve ever met. But I want to talk about a particular couple right now… WayHaught, or Kat and Dom. Listen to me when I tell you- I have never met two nicer, down to earth, smart, beautiful and incredible women. When Dominique talks to you, you feel like you two are the only ones in the room, she engages you in a way that’s almost hypnotozing, she makes physical contact to make sure you know she’s genuinely listening to what you’re saying… And Kat, where do I even begin. If you’ve ever watched an interview or a video of Kat talking, you can hear the kindness in her voice. When you talk to her you feel an almost safety blanket put around you, that she’s there for you no matter what.

The Shoot, WayHaught, and Hollstein panel was absolutely insane- and you could tell thqt the actresses thought it was just as bonkers as we did. I also want to take a moment to recognize all of the amazing panelists/interviewers- you guys made a hard job look easy. And Dana, having Elise and Natasha read from Clexa/Xena and Gabrielle/Carol scripts was one of the greatest things ever done on a panel EVER. It was unbelievable. Everyone I met over that weekend kept repeating the same question over and over… “Is this really happening?”

Yes. It happened.

I also met many people in the industry that I’ve long admired, notably Emily Andras (If you know me well, you know I was on board with Wynonna Earp since day one). I also took her writing class, the central theme of it being a WayHaught wedding- (she knows us too well 👀) and I learned so much valuable writing/industry rules to follow and goals to keep working on that I will never forget… Least of all my favorite piece of advice, “You know you’ve made it the first time you say ‘no’ in the writers room.”

Oh… And did I mention Sara Ramirez showed up? So, let me tell you a little story- on Saturday I worked about 10 hours, just photographing everyone and everything. I realized I had to finish a 5 page paper due for my English class that I had to get in before midnight, so at 10 p.m. I get to my hotel, write my essay and send it in… I then get peer Pressured into going into the “Sinful” party (Thanks Evan and Sam 😜) and didn’t get back to my hotel until around 3:30 am… So I slept in and unfortunately missed the Queer POC representation panel (the one I was really looking forward to) but by pure luck they were doing a part 2 later on! So… I get to the panel, and I use the term panel loosely as it was more of a very large group discussion about everything from race to safe spaces and who shows up? Sara Ramirez in all of her beautiful Bisexual glory. After that, she sort of became a panelist as well- talking about mental health (which hey ClexaCon 2018 how about a mental health panel!) And the difficulties growing up Bisexual and biracial. After the panel the entire room had a group hug.

Believe me when I tell you, Sara is one of the most charming people I met that weekend- and I learned more than I could ever thank her and the panel for. Being a queer white woman I know of many things, I know about mental health issues because I’ve suffered them, I know what it’s like to be in a wheelchair for an extended period of time and the difficulties that entails (and I also know how hard it is to re-learn how to walk), I know about being gay, and I know about having white privelage.

What I don’t know is race, what it means to be biracial, trans, Bisexual, asexual, gender non conforming, and many many other things. And I will never pretend that I do. Because I can’t possibly know what I haven’t experienced. That’s why as a screenwriter and someone who tells stories it was imperative for me to ask the amazing and diverse people in that room what I can do to help tell their stories and if it was okay to ask for them to help me do so, what they wanted to see in strong female characters that represents who they are. They were so gracious and kind, they gave so many wonderful suggestions and guidelines to work on that I will always keep in mind. I didn’t say much during the panel but that was the entire point of being a white woman in a room about Queer POC representation… It was my job to shut up and listen to them. And I’m so glad I did.


To Alexia, Sam, Lisa, Evan, literally ALL of the amazing organizers and volunteers- we have made something that will last for years to come. I hope to see you all next year for ClexaCon 2018, because there’s no way we’re letting this little piece of Utopia go.

Review: Anne with an ‘E’ (Spoilers)

So I had just finished the Netflix series Anne with an ‘E’ with my Mum (who watched all of it a week prior to me) and I feel as if I need to give a consensus as a child who read all the books and felt that the 1985 adaptation was as close to perfect as anyone could get. I also see my younger self as a little Anne Shirley which is why I am so fiercely protective of this series and any adaptation of said series. So lets get to it:

My Praises

-The Cast: Although I do have an enternal love for Megan Follows, Jonathan Crombie, Colleen Dewhurst, and Richard Farnsworth as their respective characters; I could not imagine another better cast as the one in Anne with an 'E’. Newcomer Amybeth McNulty undeniably shines as the fierce and imaginative Anne Shirley. She captures Anne completely with even the slightest of expressions. Lucas Jade Zumann becomes Gilbert “Heart-Eyes” Blythe with his loving smirk and utter adoration of Anne. I also commend Geraldine James for making such an exquisite Marilla. James nailed Marilla’s sterness and sensitivity. Lastly, Corrine Koslo made Rachel Lynde my absolute fave and I have no problems with that.
-The Soundtrack: That upbeat and vibrant Celtic music.
-The Cinematography: It felt like I was truly experiencing the world through Anne’s eyes. So stunning to watch.
-The Episode Titles: I just loved this little detail they added in making all the episode titles Jane Eyre quotes. Since it is my favourite novel of all time, it did make me squeal a little everytime they mentioned it in the show.
-The Directing: Speechless, honestly. Props to the 5/7 female directors. We honestly do not see enough of them in this day and age.
-The Feminism!: That theme of feminism that underlyed throughout the show was something that made it stick. In a young girl’s coming-of-age story, there always should be a bit of feminism and girl empowerment to make it relatable. It was also Marilla’s coming-of-age in a way as well, becoming a “Mother in a Modern World”.
-Anne & Diana’s Adorable Friendship: Bossom Friends till the end.

My Criticism

-The Anne and Gilbert Love Story: Now before you all throw your hands 'round my throat, hear me out. These two are my precious babies. They are the teenage Lizzie and Darcy. Now Lizzie didn’t talk to Darcy because “a friend liked him”. No. Lizzie didn’t talk to Darcy because of her own stupid pride. Just like Anne. I have no idea why the writers thought of that “friend obligation” thingo. Anne was stupidly proud and ignored Gilbert because of that. Gilbert also was a bit of a twat when he pulled her hair and called her “carrots” (fucking iconic) not all soft and gentle. But the rest they got right. Except for the last episode (which a will get to..) where they called “truce”. Anne and Gilbert did not call “truce” until like 3 years later. Apart from that, the kids had amazing chemistry and were extremely adorable. Could have had extra time with spelling bees and stuff though.
-The Theives: I seriously have no clue. I was literally like this at that strange cliffhanger ending “!?!?!?!?!?”. It was really out of place.
-Gilbert working on the Docks: This honestly just made me really fucking mad. How is this going to change Anne and Gil’s relationship!? Is he coming back to school!? Is he going to become a doctor!!??
-The Lack of Anne’s Pride and Vanity: I wanted the Anne who accidentally dyed her hair green and climbed the roof of the school! The one who was so incredibly proud and vain. It made her relatable.

Overall, I think the pluses outweight the minuses. Y'all should give it a watch ASAP. Nothing will ever top the 1985 adaptation (or ya know the books) but this one certainly gives it a run for its money.

anonymous asked:

Ok. So, to find out when the game itself takes place, you've gotta know when the studio was open. At first, I assumed that Bendy was a rubberhose toon from the height of that style of cartoons. That would put their timeline between 1925 and 1935. Since Sammy recognized Henry but Henry didn't know about the studio extensions in the basement, Henry would have had to leave the studio sometime around 1928. However, Henry also wasn't around for the instillation of the ink machine,… (Mo 1)

(2) which Sammy said was build “over their heads”. So Sammy was either: 1.) downstairs when the ink machine was built, or 2.) the tape recorder was moved downstairs. We also know from Wally’s recordings that Joey had “everyone” donate something from their workstations, so the employees at that time were pretty few. Each item can probably be associated with a specific person; the book is Joey’s the record Sammy’s, and I imagine the doll belinged to the guy who did toys. (Mo)

(3) But based on how small the company was at the time (and modelling it off Disney’s early years) I can’t imagine Henry wasn’t working there at that time; in fact, the inkwell could be his. So where’s the overlap, and how did Joey publish a book if the company was that small? Demonic hijinks definitely accounts for some of it, but the timing is weird. If (basing this assumption off Wally’s first recording) the ink machine was put up very soon after the pedestals, … (Mo)

(4) then it’s possible Henry left between the pedestals and the ink machine. That still doesn’t leave a lot of time for Henry knowing and being super close to all his coworkers, but it works. UNTIL I saw someone notice the “Buy Bonds” mark I hadn’t seen before on one of the episode posters. When I researched, I couldn’t find any examples of cartoon propaganda in WWI. WWII, however, is well known for it. Now we’d have to rework what we already figured out for a new timeperiod. (Mo)

(5) First off, why would this studio still be using rubberhose-style animation long after it had gone out of style? They probably started the studio right before rubberhose went out, and wouldn’t or couldn’t update it. That puts them starting the studio in the 1934-1935 range. That’s good, because it gives plenty of time between the founding to when it went mad. Wally said that the animations weren’t being finished on time anymore, which means they had a time schedule. (Mo)

(6?) A time schedule like that would probably be imposed by a distributer. At this time, probably the studio was doing a lot of work for the government and military and being funded by them (hence “Buy Bonds”). This is probably about the time that Joey really stopped caring about the actual animations. The extensions probably also happened around then. So when did Henry leave the studio? Probably right before the studio was doing animations for the military. (Mo)

(7) At that time, Joey was probably already starting to slip. There were probably already plans for an extension to the studio, and rudimentary plans for the ink machine. This would’ve been about 1940-1941. Henry would have been really familiar with everyone there, maybe to the point of leaving behind a keepsake that could later be used for the pedestals. The extensions are built, the ink machine installed, more employees hired, and the studio went under probably late 40’s. (Mo)

(8; last one, promise!) Whether the studio went under because of money or demonic issues is up for interpretation. So, assuming that demonic stuff means that Henry went back exactly 30 years after he left the studio, the game may take place in 1970 or 1971. All of that is, of course, a guess. I’ve found it fun to try to connect the game to the actuall history of animation. I guess only time and new chapters will reveal what really happened! Thanks for letting me do this. -Mo💚

Dang when you said it was the length of a novel you weren’t kidding.

Anyways, let’s try and go through this one thing at a time.

Hi! Could you rec me some Larry royalty AU's? I'm sure you have a post somewhere but I'm on mobile and I can't find it. :( I've read Wear it like a Crown and The Stars in Your Eyes Light up the Sky. And those are 2 of my favorites. Preferably more than 60k words. Please and thank you so much :)

Hi! You are the first person to ask me about fic recs, so thank you for that! It was a lovely surprise :)

I actually haven’t made any rec lists solely based on one theme so this is a first for that one too. And you picked a hard one! 

You mentioned Wear It Like A Crown by zarah5 (141k) and The Stars In Your Eyes Light Up The Sky by andthensusays (60k) and those might actually be the only royalty fics that I’ve read and enjoyed too, so far. But I did a little research and found some that sound pretty promising and fit in under the 60k+ words. 

Feel The Chemicals Burn In My Bloodstream by togetherwecouldbealright (123k) CHAPTERED 

“Alright, alright. No need to bite,” Harry says, holding his hands above his head in a general gesture of surrender.

Louis quirks an eyebrow and his foot nudges Harry’s as he moves to sit straight. “If that’s what you think biting is, you’ve got another thing coming, Styles.”

Harry blinks at him before he feels his face flush and inside the marrows of his bones there’s pulses of heat, pulses of fire spreading through him. “Is that a threat, your Highness?”

“That’s a promise,” Louis answers just as the car halts to a stop. “One I intend to keep.”

Harry is a journalist with a lot of secrets and Louis is the future king of the United Kingdom; they live together for 60 days.

The man’s head shoots up, his eyes meeting Louis’s and Louis can’t fucking breathe. He knows those eyes. They’re so familiar and so so green. They’re wide and Louis can see fear and maybe shame in them. The same hair, same eyes, same face, same bad posture. He doesn’t understand.

Taking a step forward, Louis gives a slight bow.

“Prince Harry, is it?” he says, more venomously than he’d wanted. “I’d say it’s a pleasure, but that’d be a lie.”

Or, Louis’ a Prince in a kingdom that needs help and Harry’s a Prince with a secret.

Prince Harold Edward Styles Lancaster is second in line to the throne of Great Britain. He is also your average Uni student- or he tries to be, anyway.

With a promise from the press (and his father) that they’ll leave him alone for four years, he sets out to be a student at Cambridge, when he meets his very normal, very working class, very handsome suite-mate, Louis Tomlinson.

Louis makes Harry feel more like a person than he ever has before, which might cause some issues later on- ‘cause Harry has a secret that he’s only told his sister Gemma about.

Little does he know though, that Louis has some secrets of his own.

A Will & Kate Au- with a twist.

Also, you might want to consider reading this one, even though it’s not necessarily Royalty fic, but still in the same sort of category and it’s a really good fic. 

Can I Lay By Your SIde? by Star_Henderson (59k) CHAPTERED 

“Harry, tell me what you are going to do when you leave here.”

“I’m going to drive to a hotel, drink some of that vodka, enough to give me dutch courage.“ Harry looks down at his feet, colour blooming in his cheeks. “I’m going to find a bar, find a man who wants to sleep with me, find some weed and lose myself for a few days.”

“Look, do you even know your way around Manchester, do you know anyone here?”

He shakes his head.

“So you are just going to pick up a random man and sleep with him?” Louis huffs out incredulously.

“There’s a first time for everything.”

Or, Fate brings Louis to Harry. Alone, Harry’s buying vodka in Louis’ local shop. He takes him home, this beautiful stranger, giving him his undivided attention and the weekend of his life. Together they tick off Harry’s ‘to do’ list and fall in love at the same time. Harry has secrets and despairingly, on Monday morning, he has to go back to his old life. Louis and Harry meet up six months later by accident in quite different circumstances.

Hope these help a little! And thanks again for asking :) If anyone knows any royalty fics and wants to share, please feel free to add to this post!

Colab with mah really really really really really awesome friend @staryu-l! We were just talking about some random stuff and then this happened. It’s Easter so we made it Easter themed. So, I need to bear the suffering with all the pink stuff (because I’m not a fan of pink). Also, did I mention she’s really (times infinite) awesome?

dan mentioned frank ocean being his fav and he started talking about chanel and i got so so so excited but then he said "it's about sex and money" and completely overlooked the bisexuality theme and it made me feel weirdly sad. frank ocean did not struggle with his sexuality as a black rapper for dan to say "it's beautiful and poetic but has the same themes as every trashy song" like what the fuck.

ahhhhh i’m sorry his assessment of it made you feel so negative :( i have to admit that i interpreted his review of the song a bit differently from you! i thought dan was basically saying that franks lyrics are superficially about opulence and wealth and the sort of hypermasculine grandiosity that hiphop always celebrates but that the lyrics are actually incredibly complex and poetic and deeper than what that superficial assessment would suggest. which is true. frank writes the song to basically talk about how these masculine tropes don’t fit him at all and that they’re actually toxic and consuming. he mentions his lover having a feminine appearance but that he feels he needs to show his masculinity through aggression and fighting. he basically makes fun of rich and famous people throughout the song. but it’s easy to miss if you’re just casually listening.

i too wish that dan had straight up said exactly why frank is so critical of masculinity and *why* the motif of duality is so present in his music … but i also get why he didn’t. this song is one of franks most explicit in terms of addressing a male love interest (i mean it literally has a line that’s like “good dick could roll the eyes back in the skull”) and i just think dans not in a place where he would outright say “i love frank bc he talks poetically about gender roles and bisexuality” bc,,, naturally everyone would use that to pigeonhole exactly why dan loves and relates to frank’s music so much and, more fuckin importantly to me at least, much like moonlight–it runs the risk of this fan base completely overlooking the value of a man of color discussing his queerness in favor of thinking about *dan* relating to that queerness. i feel like the way dan talks about franks music is to protect himself but also to respect that franks music is so much bigger than he is and deserves to be listened to and evaluated completely on its own merits, for its own radicalism and beauty. so although i would love to hear dan go deeper with his reviews, bc i like dan and enjoy hearing his thoughts, i’m also happy he lets the music speak for itself and doesn’t run the risk of his reaction overshadowing everything that makes frank so courageous, artistic, and beautiful.

Afterthoughts after Ragnarok

Originally posted by fancykraken

So, I had the opportunity to watch both Thor: The Dark World and Thor: Ragnarok as a double-feature at an IMAX cinema yesterday, which was… fangirl heaven, in a nutshell. I can only highly recommend watching the second installment before Ragnarok because it is a nice reminder of the details, basically. And of course, it sets the mood. 😊

I just wanted to quickly type up some initial thoughts on Thor: Ragnarok because I am fangirling hard right now.

THEREFORE – BEWARE OF SPOILER ALERT.

Atomic Blonde (2017)
Movie Review by: Will Whalen

She has arrived and is here to kick some ass. Atomic Blonde stars Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Eddie Marsan, and Sofia Boutella among others. It is about an undercover agent who is sent to Berlin during the 1980’s Cold War to investigate a murder of a fellow agent. She also teams up with McAvoy to try and locate a missing list of all the double agents of MI6.

Atomic Blonde comes from David Leitch who was one of the directors of John Wick and the director of the upcoming Deadpool 2. When I first saw the trailer for this, I was blown away with immediate anticipation. We saw what the other director of John Wick could do by himself with John Wick 2 but what David Leitch did with Atomic Blonde, was a monster of its own and probably even better than Chad Staheliski. 
There’s few movies that I would say that are filmed to perfection but Atomic Blonde was damn sure close. Every scene was shining in gorgeous neon lights and imagery and stunning camera work. Every frame was just about as perfect as a shot could get and centered to perfection. Let me tell you, this film is jam packed with gorgeous shots. But let’s not take away from the cinematographer here, Jonathan Sela, who was the cinematographer for John Wick. He actually outdoes himself in this film than any other film he has been the DOP of. The words in this review fail in comparison to what Leitch actually accomplishes in Atomic Blonde.
The action scenes are beautifully brutal, violent and also beautifully choreographed. Again, a lot has to do with Leitch and hats off to the incredible stunt work here. During Atomic Blonde’s two hour runtime, 15 minutes of it (give or take) is of a one shot action scene that had me absolutely floored, jaw on the floor and gripped into my chair. Although there are a few hidden cuts, as most one shot scenes do have, it doesn’t take away from how absolutely white knuckled it is and how enthralling it is to watch. It is truly a spectacle to behold.

However, all of these amazing actions scenes and amazing shots would be nothing without the woman herself, the Atomic Blonde, Charlize Theron. I loved Charlize Theron before this and she has proven herself to be an absolute badass before but she kicked my face clean off in this film. There was no better choice for her character and she kicked more ass than most movie characters ever have in this film. 
For me, and most will think I’m crazy, but she puts John Wick to shame. May not rack up as many headshots but she sure as hell makes up for it. She’s smart, sexy, violent and an all around blast to watch on screen here and plays it off so sly. I just can’t get over how badass she was in this film and every scene she was in accompanied by every line that she said.
Sofia Boutella was in this film and there’s a scene with her and Charlize Theron that was, to say the least, absolutely amazing and had me melting in my chair. It’s almost better than the 15 minute oner… almost.
One of my favorite actors, James McAvoy, was also in this and any time he’s in a film, I get ten times more excited. He is always awesome and it was no surprise to see him kick ass in this too. That being said, he’s definitely of a supporting role here but nonetheless, steals the show every time he’s on the screen.

Besides the amazing direction, cinematography, performances and action, the love doesn’t stop there. The overall look and feel for the film of the 1980’s Cold War setting and the Berlin Wall, were just more things that make this film pop. I have a big interest for the time period of the 80’s and it was just yet another thing that I loved here and thought was captured so vibrantly.
The score was entrancing and the music was also a delight. There’s definitely some odd choices of music here but they work. From some of the best known tunes of the 80’s from David Bowie and The Clash and even some under the radar cuts, this soundtrack and the score boosted this film even further. I will definitely be purchasing this soundtrack when it goes on sale.
As far as the feel of the film is, the use of lights in this are just hypnotizing. There’s a lot of use of neon red and blue lights that made each frame drip with ecstasy. Not to mention the themes of espionage and spy plots that fill this film and make it what it is. I’m a huge fan of the genre and a good spy plot anyway but Atomic Blonde was everything I could want in a badass spy/action film.

There is a very small problem I did have with Atomic Blonde however, and is one that a lot of critics seem to have the most problem with. And that would be narrative and the storytelling. At times, it does kind of get a tad confusing as to what is happening and trying to piece things together that don’t always make a lot of sense. However, it does all come full circle and end up making sense. It’s just that it may not make sense at the time and I feel like most aren’t exactly getting that or that they feel there’s some out of place scenes. For me, it works completely and I loved every single second of it and it’s sometimes confusing narrative. Which is something I would typically have a problem with if it were to be an issue but it works for the film and it does come full circle like I said.

Look, I absolutely loved Atomic Blonde and everything about it. It was probably one of the most fun times I’ve had at the theater all year. It does seem like some do have problems with the film but I had next to none. David Leitch has created a gorgeous and badass action film and I think Deadpool 2 is definitely in good hands. It is filled with breathtaking shots, white knuckled action and was brutally badass, sexy, gorgeous and electrifying. Charlize Theron is a powerhouse here and I can’t wait to see it again and can only hope for a possible sequel. I think I’ll most definitely be in the minority as far as my rating goes. Typically, I’m usually pretty to par with what most critics think of it but this time, I think most are wrong.

I’m going to give Atomic Blonde

5 out of 5 stars!

This is largely for my own reference. I just need to line up some bits of dialogue from this season so far cuz I keep mentioning that this is almost certainly an underlying theme of the season, and I want some shit to back me up.


So… we already knew that the very first word of the season was “father.” 

Did we also realize that they are also the first four words that Jack ever says? 


13x01

JACK: Father? 

SAM: No, no no. No. I’m not your father, Jack. It is Jack, right? 

JACK (eyes still glowing): Father. 

-

STATIC CRACKLES FROM THE DRIVE THROUGH SPEAKER. 

JACK: Father? 

CLARK AND KID LOOK AT EACH OTHER AND GO TO THE DRIVE THROUGH WINDOW. 

CLARK, through the mic: Yo, we’re not open yet. 

JACK: Father. 

And then later, throwing the whole ‘chosen’ family versus ‘blood’ family thing right in our faces…

JACK: I have to find my father. He’ll protect me.

SAM: Jack, you gotta listen to me. That’s not really what Lucifer does.

JACK: Lucifer? No, that’s not his name. My father is Castiel.

And it’s something that’s getting brought up every single episode. 


13x02

JACK: This book, it mentions my father. Not Castiel, but Lucifer. 

DEAN: Oh, yeah. Yeah, he’s—he’s big in the Bible. Lotta screen time.

JACK: And you… knew him?

SAM: Well, he’s not really an easy guy to know. He’s, um, he’s kind of rough around the edges.

DEAN: He’s Satan.

JACK: And that’s… that’s bad.

DEAN: Damn straight. See… he turned on his father, God.

JACK: God, he’s in here, too. Is he famous or something?

SAM: Yeah. Um, God basically… created everything.

DEAN: Yeah, and then he skipped out, leaving guys like us to clean up his messes life Lucifer.

JACK: So, God’s like my grandfather. He’s family, and that’s… That’s good.

DEAN: Sometimes.

(Nothing to see here, just Dean taking that age-old conversation that family doesn’t start or end with blood and flipping it over so now instead it’s, “family isn’t always good.”)

BARTENDER: What the hell? You’re not drivin’, right? I’ve just—I’ve seen you around the hotel. Passin’ through with… what, your buddies? 

DEAN: Uh, that’s my brother, and some messed up kid.

BARTENDER: Oh, the kid’s messed up?

DEAN: Yeah, issues with his dad. 

BARTENDER: The older fella.

DEAN: No, that’s, uh, Donatello. Uh, he’s a… guy we work with.

BARTENDER: I hated my old man. I ran away myself. See, my mom would never stick up for me. But… (sighs) you know kids. No matter what, they still want the old man’s approval. Well, that’s how it was with me, just… 

DEAN: You know, that’s, uh, that’s how it was with me, too.

And John’s journal is the exposition piece that reveals there was a gate of hell in Jasper, WY. 

But let’s move on…


13x03

KELLY: Jack, don’t let anyone tell you who you’re supposed to be. Because who you’re supposed to be isn’t fate, it isn’t me, it isn’t your father. You are who you choose to be. And I know you’re going to okay. You are going to be amazing. You have an angel watching over you.

-

PATIENCE: I talked to my dad. He thinks I should put it away. Dad says we should just get back to normal. Maybe he’s right.

-

SAM: I didn’t ‘end bad’. When I was the freak, when I was drinking demon blood.

DEAN: Come on man, that’s totally different.

SAM: Was it? Because you could’ve put a bullet in me. Dad told you to put a bullet in me but you didn’t! You saved me! So help me save him!


13x04

SAM: Dean, what’s up with all the orders? You’re starting to sound like dad.

DEAN: Is that a bad thing?

SAM: I’m just saying his – his drill sergeant have worked with you, but it didn’t work with me. And that’s not the way we’re gonna get through to Jack.

Oh, and John’s journal is brought up AGAIN in their therapy session. 

anonymous asked:

a therapist telling u that bisexuality isn't real isn't fucking conversion therapy. No one on the planet has gone through ACTUAL conversion therapy (which is straight up torture not just a few words of invalidation) to 'become' gay. Also lesbians have the exact same thing happen to us with the whole 'u should be sexually fluid' shit like admit homophobes are inconsistent and just want all of us to stop existing!!

omg, Anon, I am so excited!  I get to be the first person to introduce you to an exciting concept that is just going to blow your tiny little mind!  This is going to be so much fun.  Are you ready?  Okay, here goes…

One person’s experience of oppression does not invalidate, negate, or otherwise counter your experience of a different oppression!

Likewise, your experience of oppression does not invalidate, negate, or otherwise counter our experience of a different oppression!

Guess what that means?  Seriously, you’re gonna lose your shit over this, I hope you’re ready…

Lesbians being told “you should be sexually fluid” is homophobic and that’s bad, and bisexuals being told “bisexuality doesn’t exist” is biphobic and that’s ALSO bad!  Both of these things can be true!  At the exact same time!  

And it’s funny, because you seem to hint at that truth with “they just want all of us to stop existing”, but if you actually believed that then would you be in my inbox right now feeling the need to try to silence a bi person from talking about biphobia?  Somehow I don’t think so!

Condescending sarcastic excitement aside, you can go right ahead and shut the actual fuck up with your minimizing institutionalized biphobia in a therapeutic context as “just a few words of invalidation”.  You don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about and this is the perfect moment to stop wasting everyone’s time with your irrelevant opinion about an experience you don’t share.

I’d also like to know, purely as a point of linguistic curiosity, how a medical professional telling a patient that their sexuality “doesn’t exist” and trying to convince them that they should change their orientation to a monosexual one (in either direction! it’s not just “you should identify as gay”! it could equally be “you’re straight but confused”!) fails to fall under the term of “conversion therapy”?  What would you call that, exactly?  Is it not a therapist attempting to convert someone away from their sexual orientation?  You’re assuming it’s something a therapist says once and then lets go, but I can assure you that’s not the case.  They may only get to say it once, if the patient is in a position (financially, mentally, confidence-wise, etc) to fire the therapist right away, but in other cases it becomes a recurring theme, and having a therapist constantly undermining a part of your identity is not healthy for anyone and yeah, that’s by definition a form of conversion therapy.

Also shut up.  Did I mention that part yet?  Definitely shut the fuck up. 

(No but seriously ppl like you are why I have capital-I Issues with lesbians.  At this point, my experience with the way lesbians treat other non-lesbian queer women has made me wary of y’all to almost the same degree I’m wary of straight men, and in a very similar way.  I just assume you’re going to be shitty to me, although about my orientation rather than my gender, until we’ve known each other long enough that I can start to trust you.  And look!  Here you are in my inbox, a lesbian being an asshole to bisexuals, reinforcing that experience yet again.)

Do I have a fun story for you kids~

I’m currently (Fall 2016) studying across the pond in London at Shakespeare’s Globe Theater, under the direction of Michael Pavelka. He set up an absolutely incredible opportunity, working with acclaimed milliner Sean Barrett (Alice in Wonderland, Downtown Abbey, many many more). One of the films this ball of sunshine worked on was Crimson Peak. Of course I want to cosplay Lucille, but I didn’t have much of a clue as per how to make that hat. So what better to do than to ask the man himself?

Well, he said he had a “much more beautiful” hat designed, so of course I leaned in and said, “tell me more, friend~”. Well, he said he had designed a more feminine face for the hat, an elegant death mask of sorts, lending to the movie’s other themes. Layers of beautiful lace and tulle, over a woman’s face rather than the Deku Tree-like face in the film, trimmed with leaves just gracing the features, like an overgrown grave. He also mentioned they had planned to acquire some taxidermied Death’s Head Hawkmoths and include them in the design.

I did it. I made Sean’s version of the hat from a lovely sketch he did right in my sketchbook! I looked into the Hawkmoths, but they’re somewhat pricey for me, and I wasn’t sure how I felt about a deceased insect on my head, so I decided to forgo it, and made one out of pieces here and there, mainly feathers! The translucent leaves were a gift from Sean as well, and I feel absolutely honored to have worked with him, even for such a short time. He’s actually digging through some old files to see if he can find any more of the original design work from Kate Hawley!

OTP Song Meme

Was tagged by @illusivesoul Yay! :D

Rules: Sum up your OTP in a three-song playlist.

My OTP in Mass Effect is Shenko. Since this is a three song playlist, I’m totally making this trilogy-themed as well. Did I mention my Shep playlist is super long? A good chunk of it is romance songs. Using female pronouns here, but I think all three songs are also appropriate for MShenko head canons. :)

ME 1: Starships – Nicki Minaj

This is my head canon– while on their search for Saren, probably just before Virmire, the crew stops by Flux for some R & R. After a few shots, Ash goads Shep about staying on the sideline while most everyone else is cutting loose. Shep takes it as a personal challenge, and before long she’s face to face with her favorite lieutenant, dancing, in public. Before things get too risky, the music picks back up again and they’re back to their normal “I would never fraternize ;) “ selves. 

ME 2 : Wish You Were Here – Pink Floyd

Basically, my soundtrack to the scene where Faithful!Shep stares pointedly at the screen before leaving for the suicide mission. She definitely wishes things could have gone differently between them, but she knows her convictions about the Collectors, and that she has to let that override her feelings about Cerberus, at least for now. I *ahem* have a much different song for the Shep that moves on after Horizon. :D;

ME 3: Lonely Boy – The Black Keys

Kaidan especially has a old school vibe to him. I have no idea if he’d been into bluesy alternative rock from the 21st Century, but I can imagine it. This song is for after they reconcile, but have to make time for each other between missions on top of their Spectre business. 

I’ll tag @princessofmilkyway, @renegade-shepard, and @spacesquirrel

So I went to the band invitational my school was hosting with my mom and the band that got 2nd place overall played Heathens and it was actually amazing. They made it unique and I loved it! This other band did this death theme and started killing band members it was great! All except the fact that my ex is in the band and my mom wouldn’t stop mentioning it
