It was the week before the surgery, and someone was at the door.

“Stay,” Viktor told Makkachin as he unfolded out of a heel slide. The swelling had mostly gone, but he’d learned the hard way that the knee still had a tendency to buckle when she came unexpectedly underfoot.

It was Yakov. “I’m doing the pre-op exercises,” Viktor said, more irritably than he’d meant. “You don’t need to check up on me.”

Yakov snorted. “Have you packed?”

“Packed?” Viktor hadn’t. “What for?”

“Vitya,” Yakov said impatiently, like they’d had this conversation before. Possibly they had. “You can’t stay here by yourself while you recover.”

Highlight of The Crown (2016)

(The most expensive prestige drama to date)

(Written by the same Oscar faves who wrote The Queen)

(An Emmy contender before it even premiered)

Most definitely, the highlight of this entire season is the delighted expression of Queen Elizabeth II, Elizabeth Regina, when Prince Philip suggests that she get on her knees and blow him

Egyptian Eye of Horus Swivel Ring, New Kingdom, Amarna Period, 1352-1336 BC

The Eye of Horus was a powerful symbol of protection and was incorporated into all sorts of jewelry to protect the wearer. It was also known as the “Eye of Ra,” a powerful destructive force linked with the fierce heat of the sun which was described as the “Daughter of Ra.” The eye was personified as the goddess Wadjet, who took the form of a cobra to protect the Pharaoh by being represented on his brow. This Eye of Horus is carved out of carnelian.

The most powerful eyes

BELONGS TO THE MOST BEATUFUL ONES

Can we talk about the importance eye’s power have in Naruto? And kishi made it even more special with sasusaku , it’s just for them and that’s deep as fuck


If, after locking gaze, a potential partner keeps looking at the eyes, then it may be love. If the eyes slide down over the body, then it is more likely to be lust. Exactly where the eyes go is important. Looking at a person’s mouth can indicate that you would like to kiss them. Looking at sexual regions indicates a desire to have sexual relations with them.

We also look more at people we like and like people who look at us more. When done with doe eyes and smiles, it is a sign of attraction. Lovers will stare into each others eyes for a long period. Attraction is also indicated by looking back and forth between the two eyes, as if we are desperately trying to determine if they are interested in us too.

I was reading the blog of someone who earnestly believes there’s no romantic/sexual tension between Sherlock and John on the show.  This person genuinely believes that it’s 100% something that fans have imagined is there.

But, the thing is, the way the show is written, acted and shot is not how you would write, act and shoot a show without romantic/sexual subtext between the two leads.  Like, if the goal were for these men to seem like they weren’t attracted to each other then they would need to re-write and reshoot a lot of the show.

If these characters are supposed to seem like they’re not attracted to each other then the show is a failure.  If you have two characters staring deeply into each other’s eyes for prolonged periods of time and they’re supposed to seem like 100% straight men with a 100% platonic bond then someone in the team would say, ‘wait, that needs to be shorter and less intense because it’s going to seem gay if we do it this way’.  

I’ve seen an interview where the show runners discussed that test audiences thought that the scene where Sherlock is whipping a corpse in the original pilot made him seem gay.  And they kept it, knowing that.  And they did another versions of it for TAB.  Why would you consciously code something in a way that you didn’t intend?  That doesn’t make a lick of sense.

We have all seen so, so, so many examples of male platonic friendship onscreen, we know that there’s a line that most even very homoerotic movies/shows don’t cross.  BBC Sherlock crosses that line in every single episode.  (I mean Top Gun kind of does cross it all over the place but most too-chose-yelling scenes from Army movies are at least supposed to be straight).

So, yeah, if things accidentally look gay on your show, a lot, then maybe you need to work a lot harder to convey your vision of straight platonic friends because you’re failing.  At something very, very simple.

The Torture of Kelly Ann Bates.

Kelly Ann Bates was a cheerful, friendly fourteen-year-old when she met grim, violent James Patterson Smith while babysitting at a friends house. Despite Smith being over twenty years her senior, they began a relationship which Kelly kept concealed from her parents, and disguised the beatings she recieved as accidents from work.

After a rocky two years, Kelly moved in with Smith at his flat in Manchester, after fighting with her mother. As soon as her daughter left home, Kelly’s mother lost all contact with her. In March 1996 she attempted to see Kelly at the flat but was told by Smith that she was ill, and told to go away.

Kelly was in fact tied to the bathtub by chains, and Smith had gouged her eyes out. Over a period of four weeks he had beaten her, burned her arm so badly tendons showed through, and crushed her hands under blocks of cement. Her body was covered in bruises and cuts, and after removing her eyes Smith had stabbed the empty sockets with a pair of scissors. In addition to this horrific abuse, Smith starved Kelly for days on end and denied her water.

On the 16th of April, 1996, Smith walked into Greater Manchester Police Station and told officers his girlfriend had accidently drowned in the bathtub. When police arrived at the flat they discovered Kelly’s terribly mutilated body lying on the bed. The medical examiner noted 150 separate injuries to her body, and determined her eyes had been gouged out three weeks before Smith finally drowned her in the bathtub. “I have seen over 600 victims of homicide, and never witnessed injuries so extensive. Her death must have been a merciful end to her torment” the M.E said in a statement".

49-year old Smith denied murdering Bates and claimed she inflicted most of the injuries herself to “wind me up”. He also claimed Kelly would taunt him over his dead mother and disfigure herself to make him look bad. The judge sentenced him to life imprisonment and said in his closing argument “You are a highly dangerous person. You are an abuser of women, and I intend to use all my power to ensure you abuse no more.”
