fairytale:-a-true-story

So I did a thing and wrote John telling James his story.

There had been an unspoken compromise not to talk about the past.

That made conversation difficult, to say the least, since everything between them was of the past. Yet after the first couple of days they managed to only speak of current events such as the state of piracy, the maroons and the failing treaty they both knew could not have lasted, and the proper way to roast a pig. The last subject was, of course, a joke.

They had progressed, James thought, to jokes.

All around him he felt the pressure of the rift between them gnawing at his heels. It was in their hesitant smiles, in John’s eyes when he looked a moment too long at James. It reared its head in their carefully constructed conversations, like a newly woven tapestry whose fragile glass might shatter if the wrong pressure were applied.

  • Expectations: Dungeons and Dragons is a high fantasy tabletop roleplaying game. You can be anything your heart desires; go where you please; battle dragons and necromancers; save kingdoms and forge alliances! The only limit is your imagination as you set off on an epic adventure with your friends!
  • Reality: I ROLL TO PET THE WOLF AGAIN

me when the first GotG 2 trailers came out: I dunno, I didn’t dislike Yondu in the first one or anything, but I’m worried about what direction they would go with making him a bigger character

GotG 2: Hey, what if we change up his character a lil’ bit and also add in several of the character tropes you love

me, a weak fool: look at the mary poppins dad go…

Fairytale: A True Story (1997)

Set in Yorkshire, Fairytale retells the story of the famous Cottingly Fairies, and of the two cousins who discovered them. Elsie and Frances were a big deal back in 1920: their photographs of fairies sparked the interest of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who had them published in The Strand Magazine, making them kinda famous. A very heartfelt and magical movie. Chance of seeing real fairies 10/10.

Strange Magic (2015)

Love sword-fighting fairy princesses? Look no further because Marianne’s your girl. Seriously, the coolest character I know. Anyway, she’s a badass who fights the Goblin King (see above, his name’s Bog) to save her sister Dawn, and there’s a lot of singing and love potions and beating up douchebags and just generally Marianne having to deal with all the shit that goes down in her kingdom…. It’s so awesome. Based off Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Magical Legend of The Leprechauns (1999)

It’s a Romeo-and-Juliet inspired film between a fairy princess and a leprechaun. If you can excuse the poor quality and the weird side-plot about their human neighbours, you’ll find that Mickey’s gang is hilarious, the love story kind of cute, and the soundtrack very faerie-esque. There’s one scene where they just make a bunch of Irish dancers and just… dance? And the Leprechaun boys go to the fairy ball disguised as Leprechauns? This fucking film, man.

Peter Pan (2003)

This boy is so fae it’s unreal. As well as having a beautiful scene in which Peter and Wendy watch the Faerie Prince and Princess dance, it’s also one of my favourite Peter Pan adaptations. Amazing visuals, soundtrack, cast, and its Tinkerbell is hilariously wonderful.

So me and two friends went to go see Wonder Woman a few nights ago (it was really good btw) and I was driving them home. My friend is Skyping his boyfriend when we notice that the girl in the car is starting pretty intensely at guy friend, which is freaking him out. All of a sudden he starts screaming and we’re like ‘wtf’ and he says 'THAT’S MY EX BOYFRIEND’S BEST FRIEND!’ and we’re like 'THAT’S [REDACTED]???’ and he nods and our friend in the back seat screams 'DRIVE’ and we take off, all three of us screaming.

Meanwhile his boyfriend is like 'what the fuck is going on’

me:  [sees a suggestion post on another blog]

me:  [accidentally types a novel in response]

random personal: when I was first getting into Graham’s music I watched his Bittersweet Bundle of Misery video first and was like, “who is this fucking hipster omg, could he hipster any harder” and “who the fuq does he think he is having hearts on his guitar strap” and I turned it off and then I came back 24 hours later like, “graham is the most attractive man I have ever seen”
