could i have a type C ship please? i'm straight, with curly red hair and lots of freckles! i like reading & writing, taking walks especially at night, dresses and tea! i also really love coffee dates, as cliché as it sounds!
He is such a sucker for romantic dates
He asked Laf for romantic advice (Laf is incredibly tired of being asked for relationship advice)
You met at a coffee shop! (You always tell people that you’re living in a modern fairytale)
Whenever he isn’t paying attention, you like to braid his hair
You rub your eyes and climb out of bed. You see light peeking out from under the door to Alexander’s office. You slowly open the door and stand behind your husband. You wrap your arms around his shoulders and stand over him. “Come back to bed. I sleep better with you.”
He groans. “I’ll be in in an hour.”
“It’s nearly three a.m. Come back to bed.”
He looks up at you. Seeing how much you want him with you, he gives in and curls up next to you
Okay so was I watching Order of the Phoenix again last night and idk why but I started paying a lot of attention to Draco, especially on the scene on Umbridge’s office after Fred and George explode the fireworks
Here he is all happy like “hehe Harry’s getting screwed”, as usual,but THEN
Umbridge slaps Harry and he’s like WHAT THE FUCK-
And then he has this look on his face like “wow I was just in for some light bullying but what the hell is this you old frog” (while the other slytherins in the room don’t even flinch or give a fuck about anything really)
And then right after that, they are interrupted by Snape and Draco goes back to smiling like “oh…yeah…I’m supposed to be finding this super fun”
Now, leaving all my drarry shipping aside, it’s just really freaking brilliant the way Tom Felton portrayed Draco, and I feel like he understands the character so deeply. He portrays all of these mixed, confused emotions Draco feels, and how his image in front of others is important for him, how despite looking confident and cool inside he’s just utterly scared. Even when the scene isn’t about him he’s giving all this out. I love Tom and this saga so much.
This is off topic for this blog, but it hits at a topic near and dear to my heart. I am an educator. I have taught in both religious and secular institutions. I’ve seen public school teachers sacrifice so much time, money and dignity to help students who cannot afford or would not benefit from the kind of “education” someone like DeVos would put them through. Public education deserves better than a secretary who would not only disrespect it but dismantle it. Thanks to Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins, we are one vote away from rejecting Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education. I come from New Jersey and both of my Senators are Democrats. But if you live in a state with one or more Republican senator, especially if you are in a purple state, call their office and make your voice heard. Jam their phone lines with protest. Fill up their voice mail. End this nomination now. Today! We are so, so close.
ME, on seeing Depp-as-Grindelwald for the first time:
“Holy crap Gellert, you aged into one ugly motherfucker!”
“How the hell do you start out looking like Jamie Campbell Bowler and up and decide that ‘crossbreed between Adolf Hitler and Donald Trump’ is the aesthetic that REALLY speaks to your heart?”
“I bet learning about this was what made Dumbledore finally stop moping and defeat you for good. Like Newt comes back from America, hauls himself to his office and just straight up shoves a mugshot in his face.”
“YES PROFESSOR THIS IS WHAT YOUR EX LOOKS LIKE NOWADAYS.”
“NOTE THE HAIR. Actually note the everything, but ESPECIALLY the hair.”
“You don’t want to tap that ass, professor.”
“You want to KICK that ass.”
“Also he appears to have traded you for an American woobie half your age, just saying.”
re: mutual aid, i’m thinking there’s tons of isolated, disabled people, and (i realise most people on tumblr in those talks id as disabled and therefore talk for ‘the disabled’ but really there are differences you know), and especially old people, mothers/single mothers, institutionalised people, people with learned helplessness after chronic trauma, etc, etc, that would LOVE to participate (both as giver and recipient) but wouldn’t know how to start, what to access. the desire is there.
imo a really important job of those that already are “in” and “active” isn’t to like guilt others into action, but to reach out to people and to invite them in, literally. to seek out spaces that are not the “in, activist” spaces, but, like, institutions, hospitals, child care places, benefits offices, etc, and at the very least leave some addresses and “how to connect” leaflets with an explicit “why you, too, who probably assume you’d be unwelcome, are in fact welcome” vibe to them. there should be good, inviting instructions. i’m thinking literal hand holding and emotional support for how to offer things and take things. it should not be shameful to need this hand holding. and there should be no ‘secret’ requirements (like for instance that for someone to come into your space you need to clean it and offer them food for politeness or w/e).
i mean, mutual aid is especially needed for and among those that fall through the cracks of neoliberal’s ideas of ‘responsible adulthood’, right? if that makes sense. and i think that “people shouldn’t need hand holding through being ethical / resistant,” well, that’s a nice sentiment, but evidently, people do, so if you can provide this hand holding because of your personality and experience, and create more people that hold each other’s hands through this, etc, isn’t that something very important?
Today ended the three days visit of the U.S. Female Soccer Team Captain & Goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris and Coach Jill Ellis to Liberia on what was their first visit to Africa. The duo had several high level meetings and played soccer with students of the Monrovia Football Academy (an academic & soccer module program) amongst several other activities. They also did motivational sections with young students and athletes as well. Imagine growing up as a young woman and playing soccer was a taboo. Many years down the line you are handed a World Cup Trophy as a winning Team and captian- This is the story of both Coach Ellis & Captain Harris. Our office coordinated the motivational talks sessions. We like to thank everyone for the support especially the team at the U.S. Embassy in Monrovia. #makingitwork
If you already know me, you could probably guess that this would be on the list considering I never shut up about it.
This film flopped at the box office, but I’m honestly not sure why? It has absolutely gorgeous animation. Like, they could have gone with a palette of grays and blues like most scifi films do, but Treasure Planet actually has a large color palette, especially when it comes to the scenery. It shows off all the beautiful colors of space instead of making everything chrome against a dark backdrop. There are likable characters, including a an anti-hero, disabled pirate, a female Naval Captain that’s a total no-nonsense badass, and a sulky teenager. Arguably one of the darkest films Disney has done in the last twenty years. Disabled main character with only one eye, one arm, and one leg. Literally all of the character designs are gorgeous. The plot is a little boring at times, but it’s fairly easy to get lost in the world that’s been created.
Plus, we get visuals like this!
Brother Bear was another box office flop but this one also had rather negative reviews. The early 2000′s was not kind to Disney animation.
Yes, it does have a transformation plot, which I know is kind of iffy depending on the person, but overall it’s a great film. The music is amazing, bless Phil Collins signing onto another Disney project. The characters are great, I don’t think there were any I didn’t like except maybe the moose (because as an adult I don’t find them as funny as I did as a child, but I don’t really dislike them either). The relationship between the brothers was amazingly done. Usually when people want to talk about animated sibling relationships, they mention Lilo and Stitch, which is also great, but I really like how the brothers interact in Brother bear. They’re all closer in age (which is like my sister and me, so I can connect with it more), and I think that worked well when they added in the anger and grief and self-blame in the story.
Atlantis: The Lost Empire
There’s not really much I can say about this one, because truthfully I’ve only seen it a handful of times. Something about it kind of freaked me out as a child (I think it was that giant leviathan creature that attacked their submarine thing????), and I only recently found my old VHS player and haven’t had the time to watch it again.
Atlantis has it all. A beautiful world. Well-rounded, interesting characters. A romance that didn’t feel ridiculously forced. The voice talents of Michael J. Fox, Cree Summer, and Leonard Nimoy. A balances of a more adult plotline, while still retaining a kid friendly atmosphere.
Unfortunately, it does lack some coherency in the plot, and because of it’s fast-paced nature, there isn’t a lot of time for character development. The creators also borrowed a lot of elements from the Ghibli film castle in the Sky, but ultimately it’s still a great film visually speaking.
(PS: it was hard to pick a screencap that shows how visually stunning this film is. So much blue.)
The Black Cauldron
Honestly, The Black Cauldron is one of my favorite Disney films, but I can recognize that it has a lot of problems story wise. As in, they tried to stick the contents of two full length novels into an 80 minute film. Yeah, it didn’t work. The characters are interesting, albeit under-developed, visually it’s very beautiful, and it has just the right amount of creepy to give 5 year old me nightmares as a child (the Horned King was a brilliant concept). The author of the book series the Chronicles of Prydain, which the film is based on, found the film enjoyable on its own, but admitted it didn’t follow the books well. It was also another box office flop, making $21.3 million in revenue, which was less than half of the budget to make the film. This is the film that Disney pretends they didn’t make and is frequently referred to as the “worst Disney film” however we all know that that right belongs to films like Home on the Range, Chicken Little, and Mars Needs Moms.
There is speculation that Disney has plans to make a live action series based on the original books, so fingers crossed!
It’s underrated, but I can kind of tell why. Everyone already knows the story of Robin Hood, because there’s at least ten different films and TV series about the guy. He’s been on OUaT, and there was a parody movie with Cary Elwes!
The animation is, decent, but not great, but the budged was only 5 million, so??? Meaning that a lot of the characters action were redrawn from previous films such as The Jungle Book and Aristocats. However, this was pretty common in old Disney films because the animators were paid for shit and it’s not plagiarism if you’re ripping off yourself. It is a little sloppy though.
Either way, it’s still a decent film. The songs were fun and had a delightfully folk sound to them, if you’re into that! The characters are pretty cute, the story is straight forward, and there’s not actually anything to really dislike about the film. It’s just a silly comedy that has it’s ups and downs.
I don’t even know what to say about this film other than it’s gorgeous and no one ever talks about it. Like, this is the first true Disney film that relies entirely on CGI. No Pixar involvement. Just Disney and CGI. This is the most successful film of 2000 and I’ve never heard people talk about it even though it has great characters, an interesting story, and great visuals.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
While I personally don’t believe Hunchback is all that underrated (I usually see it in just about every top 10 or 20 list), it’s still a great film that deserves more praise than it gets.
Hunchback is beautiful, inspiring, dark, has excellent morals, amazing characters amazing music.It’s basically the complete package of everything you could want in a Disney film and it’s enjoyable for all ages.
The only thing I didn’t like about this film was the gargoyles and it’s kind of implied that they’re more like imaginary friends instead of real creatures, so they get a pass.
Summary: Dinner parties were not your thing, especially office dinner parties
and especially when your boss was Park Jimin.
My smuts are getting tamer and tamer lol (does this even count as a smut
Other CEO scenarios: Yoongi / Namjoon / Taehyung / Seokjin / Hoseok / Jungkook
parties were not your thing, especially office dinner parties and especially
when your boss was Park Jimin.
need to see his attractive ass outside of work hours? No, but did you want to?
Hell yes, you did. First of all, he was attractive as fuck. He melted
you every single time he smiled, both rows of teeth perfectly white and almost
perfectly straight apart from his front tooth, but that made him cute and
downright adorable. His laugh was like music to your ears, so, so
He was also
pure sin. You didn’t miss the way he’d bite his plump, pink lips as he
concentrated on a phone call, his skin was beautifully tanned, his
muscles popping out of his white shirt that was just a little bit see
through – leaving nothing to the imagination under the office lights. You
definitely did not miss the way his ass looked round and so delicious in
his pants – especially when you walked behind him, you couldn’t help but just stare
thoughts didn’t leave your brain at the dinner either.
necessary for him to wear skinny jeans? Especially the ones that were ripped
around the knees and the thighs? You didn’t need any more fantasies about his
thighs or his ass in your mind, but it looks like the world was against
you – there was only one time before when you’d seen Jimin in something apart
from a suit, but there he was today with tight ripped jeans that exposed his
tanned, muscular thighs, making his ass look even more plump if possible, a
white shirt with a hoodie over the top to protect him from the chilly air outside, his red hair just sticking out and glasses placed on the bridge of his nose.
however, wore a tight black dress, something that showed off your curves, it
only went down to about your mid-thigh, exposing your shoulders and being the
somewhat forgetful person you were, you forgot your jacket…great.
about the dinner was fine, apart from the fact you didn’t have a jacket so you
were freezing. You mentally cursed at yourself in your brain for not having
covered up more.
as everyone got up to go get drinks, Jimin moved and sat down beside you
instead. He couldn’t help but slightly glance down at your nipples that had
hardened due to the cold air, licking his lips slightly.
I’ll survive, sir” You smiled back at him kindly, refusing his offer.
Jimin, Y/N. It’s outside of work hours.” He chuckled a little before undoing
the zip on his hoodie and sliding it off his body effortlessly, placing it over
your bare shoulders with one of his cute smiles. “You’ll get a cold if you’re not warm enough.”
si–“ you stopped yourself before rephrasing, “Thank you, Jimin.”
problem”, he grinned back at you, trying to be a gentlemen and refusing to keep
looking down at your chest.
as your back hit the cold wall of the bathroom harshly, pain running through
your body but you couldn’t care right now, not when Jimin’s lips came in
contact with yours again. Jimin bit down on your lower lip as he stared into
your eyes, a low whine escaping you before he let your lip go from his hold as
your eyes fluttered open to see him looking back at you. “You look so good in this
dress, baby, so beautiful.”
for me over the sink, baby,” Jimin stepped back as you walked over to the sink,
bending over for him as he said. Your dress was short as it was, but now with
your bent over for Jimin, the view of your already damp lace panties was clear
to see. Jimin smirked as he walked over, pressing his crotch against yours with
a soft gasp escaping you at the contact.
so wet,” he groaned, “I haven’t even done anything yet baby.” Jimin chuckled
and slowly began to rock his hips into your ass, his growing bulge rubbing
against your folds.
want more, Y/N?”
please Jimin…” You whined, pushing your ass back into his hips only to have him
stop you by grabbing your hips.
you tell daddy what you want baby. Use your words and be a good girl and tell
daddy what you want him to do baby girl.” His voice was definitely a few
octaves lower, sending shivers down your spine.
hummed, his hips moving away from your ass, his hands roaming over the curve of
your ass before gently trailing his fingers over your clothed cunt, a low whine
falling from your lips. “Want my fingers right here baby girl?”
“Fuck, ye-yes daddy. Please…more.” You pushed
your hips back into his fingers, wanting to get some relief.
are we?” Jimin chuckled as his hand came in contact with your ass, the sound
bouncing off the walls with a gasp coming out of your mouth, not being prepared
for it at all.
“I think you should show daddy how much of a good girl you are, yes? Then I can
reward you if you deserve it baby girl.”
Peter is a nerd and will tell you all sorts of things about the history and architecture of London. Admittedly this may only be a bonus if you’re a nerd who likes London, but it works for me.
Peter is an unusual urban fantasy protagonist. A young, mixed-race police officer who believes in conflict resolution and community outreach even – perhaps especially – when some of the people you’re policing are goddesses and fae.
An interesting take on the Fae where it’s a word that is about as precise as foreigner or barbarian and just means someone not quite human. The division into seelie and unseelie and various subtypes by 19th century wizards is dismissed by Peter, probably accurately, as racist garbage on par with phrenology.
Peter actually manages to make the term “ethically challenged practitioner” catch on after refusing to call the bad guys “black magicians” on the grounds that he’s both black and a magician.
Peter is exactly as curious about how magic works as the reader probably is. Unfortunately, scientific equipment for measuring magic is so far limited to a magic-sensitive terrier. The yap-ometer is cutting edge.

I bought a hardcover copy of your book for my girlfriend for valentines day. It came into the office where I worked and my business manager noticed it. Next thing I know, half my office is pouring over the book ooing and ahhing. Long story short, at least 5 other people will be purchasing your book in the coming weeks! Thanks for all the work you put into this and for bringing these stories to the forefront. It's so unbelievably important especially in todays day and age. Cheers!
Yesterday we lost a dear friend and original #UNIF mascot, Mocha. She was with us everyday at home and office, always making us smile. We will miss her very much (even the times when she didn’t want to pee and made you wait in the cold forever). We were blessed to have her around for as long as we did and will cherish all of the memories. Losing anything you care about is hard and it’s a reminder of how valuable and important good relationships are and how we should appreciate every moment while we can (especially when they let you dress them like this). RIP Mocha.
Firstly SORRY FOR THE HORRIBLE QUALITY I don’t have a scanner and the paper kept curling and I took 65 photos before I got this, which is barely passable
This is fanart from Coffee Stains and Cigarettes, by cellard00rs (I don’t feel comfortable tagging em in this horrible quality post, it’s embarrassing) This is my favorite scene or at least one of them… I had to draw it! I’m hard to convince with fanfics, especially AU fanfics so you know it’s good if *I* like it! Plan to shade/semi color this and then somehow get a better scan.. it’s really big paper too.. is there a place that will scan stuff for you? Like Office Max or something… Idk
in me1 it always sorta stuck in my gizzard that everyone referred to saren by his first name when, logically, they’d call him “arterius”- especially in cases like administrator anoleis on noveria, who calls him “agent saren”. it didn’t make a whole lot of sense.
but then i was writing something and something clicked, something that had been staring me in the face the whole time: there was another arterius.
growing up, saren would have been surrounded by his brother’s legend. desolas, the officer. desolas, the born leader. desolas, the warrior. desolas, desolas, desolas. so imagine, if you will, that everyone refers to saren by his first name on his own insistence- saren, not arterius. the spectre, not the general’s brother.
and then desolas dies, and suddenly their shared name sticks in his throat. arterius, the dead man. arterius, the one who sacrificed himself to save his people. arterius, the one who lost everything.
suddenly, insisting on his given name means avoiding another one he’ll never live up to.
Revolution is not a one time event.
Don’t just go to a protest and ask what’s next afterwards. Create the next step yourself. If there isn’t a group in your area then create one.
Calling your congressman does work especially when you flood their local office. Yes voting does work or else they wouldn’t be making it so hard for you to vote.
Everyone has a part to play in the revolution. You don’t have to be involved in everything. Everyone doesn’t like protesting or organizing or calling representatives. Do what works best for you. Even if it’s just donating $5 to progressive and local radio. Or just sharing their information online. Even making art and videos.
Anything big or small is helpful in this resistance to Trump and the Republicans.
Sorry if this is a bit long guys but I really hope you enjoy it and I hope you don’t like Dwight too much…just saying haha!
Sometimes life doesn’t go according to plan…especially in Gotham.
Here I am…just left school and starting on my way on a career path…well that is until I got fired.
Typical office job…9 til 5 and 5 days a week.
It was okay…a little boring but okay.
If it wasn’t for the supervisor…she wasn’t a manager but just a supervisor who acted like a manager. She was probably the reason the term ‘Micro-managing’ was created.
I really needed this job and she knew that but still just through me out like trash.
I know they say you can’t find happiness at the bottom of a bottle but I wasn’t sure what else to do…I didn’t want to go home just yet and confront my parents.
So I made my way to a new club that opened not too far away. After flashing my ID to the guy standing at the door, I made my way in and weaved through the crowd, taking a seat at the bar.
I ordered the strongest drink they had and was shortly served. While sipping my drink I looked around and noticed everyone in the club was dressed in the same sort of clothes. The shirts appeared to be straitjackets and a lot of people were wearing messy clown makeup.
