everything about this is glorious

Everything about this gif is glorious. George just sassily trotting up and tossing the papers and just marching away. The extra flailing across the front. Jefferson skipping around and flinging more paper. Madison just calmly walking to the right. The two extras just getting d o w n in the back. The guys awkwardly carrying the bench in at the end. The ones rolling around on the floor and catching the papers. And Hamilton being in the midst of it all just looking exasperated. Beautiful.

Omelas

“The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” is a work of philosophical fiction.

Omelas, a shimmering city of unbelievable happiness and delight. In Omelas, the summer solstice is celebrated with a glorious festival.
Everything about Omelas is so abundantly pleasing that the narrator decides the reader is not yet truly convinced of its existence and so elaborates upon one final element of the city: its one atrocity. The city’s constant state of serenity and splendor requires that a single unfortunate child be kept in perpetual filth, darkness, and misery.
However, a few citizens, young and old, silently walk away from the city, and no one knows where they go.
The story ends with “The place they go towards is a place even less imaginable to most of us than the city of happiness. I cannot describe it at all. It is possible it does not exist. But they seem to know where they are going, the ones who walk away from Omelas."

This is my favourite live performance for a number of reasons. They all look hot af, just getting that out the way first. They all sound so great! It’s one of those performances where they sound better than the actual single. Plus the harmonies, especially at 2:37, are so on point 👌 The audience is also so great! You can tell that there’s a connection between them and the boys, especially with the ‘YOU SING’ bit. I love when the audience is responsive and singing along. Just everything about this performance is delicate and lovely and amazing! Even the lighting is glorious. (Harry also murdered me at 2:59. And then again at 3:11.)

Jim is responsible for Spock’s first orgasm. He’s the first person ever, including even Spock himself, to gently deconstruct his mental and physical barriers and allow him to find that painfully glorious release.

Jim allows everything about Spock’s body language in those few beautiful seconds to be burned eternally into his memory. The way his lips quiver and fall open, his choked gasping, his eyes glassing over, his head tipping back to expose his throat in a gesture of submission, his full-body shudder.

Years later, when they are old and Spock is content in himself and less a being of two halves in constant turmoil, and Jim is chubbier and just as much of a tease, Jim will wake Spock in the morning and torment him.

“Spock. Spock. Remember when you came in my arms for the first time.”
“Mmnn.”
“Spock, look. Look, this was your face, Spock. This wa- no, look. This was your face.”
“Jim-!”
“Don’t be bashful. T’hy’la. Baby. This was your face-”
“Jim, you are being a dickhead.”
“…Did you just say ‘dickhead’?!”

And they would stare each other down then Jim would just chuckle and kiss him silly and they wouldn’t get up for hours for so many reasons.

Izetta Finale Thoughts (Ep. 12)

Well, since my noob ass hit the Tumblr photo limit (that I didn’t know about rofl) and I have a bit less than 6 hours before that resets, I will post the rest of my finale caps and my comedic shitposts later for you guys. For now, I’ll simply divulge my thoughts about the finale and about the series as a whole. It’s been one hell of a magic broom ride and I’m feeling so blessed right now. I hope you feel the same.

There are LOTS OF SPOILERS HERE. If you haven’t watched episode 12, don’t read this!

anonymous asked:

how about just top female villains?

oooh. good one!

1. Morgana Pendragon from Merlin. She deserved a villain arc but I still fuckin love her, and not just because of Katie McGrath’s face. She’s everything I love in a villain: turned dark because of hurt, with that hurt still living at her core. And to a certain extent, justified in that hurt. And god, everything about her relationship with Gwen after she goes dark is glorious - it’s all of my “antagonist tries to win former friend back to them” that I love. 

2. Semirhage from Wheel of Time. Okay so maybe it’s predictable that I’d fixate on the sadistic female villain in this series who is cool and inscrutable and gloriously ruthless, no one was surprised, but I’m so into her. Also I maybe ship her a little with all of the female Forsaken. Because reasons.

3. Clytemnestra from Agamemnon. They say villain, I say fucking kill Agamemnon harder. (But leave Cassandra alone. Poor Cassandra.) I love Clytemnestra, though - she’s an avenging queen but she’s also this gloriously transgressive figure, and ofc Aeschylus meant that to make her scarier but it’s what makes her awesome. Look, I’ve raved about Clytemnestra before. Probably will keep doing it.

4. Lady Macbeth from Macbeth. fucking badass, love her, ruthless as fuck and I’m just mad she had to die. my kingdom for an AU where Lady Macbeth doesn’t die and just ditches Scotland to fuck shit up elsewhere.

5. Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender. I need to rewatch Avatar tbh but god, Azula is such a great villain, so well conceived, terrifying and intimidating in all these glorious ways, and I love her. And she’s fourteen. She’s got a whole barrel of issues, too, and we all know how I love my villains with issues.

I wasn’t sure if Medea counted as an antagonist in her own play so I left her off, but by a lot of reckonings she’s a villain. And I mean, she did murder her children, so that’s probably fair.

Poison Ivy, Emma Frost, and Mystique are all kind of ambiguous (Emma Frost has been a hero for a while), so I left them off too, but they are up there.

Also oh man I forgot Regina Mills. Regina Mills, yes, A+.

By May 2005, Mourinho was back chasing Steven Gerrard and the rumors of his impending departure were swirling again. “Yes, keeping Stevie is definitely a motivation for us. Maybe if we can win [in Istanbul], we can show him he can win trophies with Liverpool too.” - Xabi Alonso.
