fork on

But Imagine This...

A place-an island-covered in towns and cities and parks and forests and lakes and even more things I can’t even imagine it. And in the heart of this island there’s a building-a school-an academy, large, massive, grand, reaching to the sky it could put Hogwarts to shame.

But it’s the students who are the true wonder: Magic users, princesses, street rats, elite aristocrats, animals.

Now imagine a girl with long flowing yellow locks excited to be there even though she had to beg her overbearing  mother to let her go.

A mute redhead who appeared at the docks soaked to the bone but smiling and holding a fork and wanting to see what the surface world is really like.

Imagine a girl only attending cause the school didn’t apply their students maids.

Imagine a small town girl who got there with nothing but hard work and can’t stand the obnoxious rich pretty boys who don’t even appreciate that their there.

Imagine a girl who is there to not only learn how to be a queen but to control a gift that is more like a curse.

Imagine a girl who spends more time at the sea than in school.

Imagine the other small town girl who got there on a scholarship and hears of the ‘beast’ hiding in the dungeons of the school.

Imagine the anthropomorphic animals excited to join the humans with magic in their blood and crowns on their heads but are still looked down upon, especially when you’re a bunny wanting to be more than the world says you can be.

Imagine a mean and snobbish girl who might as well be a sea witch becoming the queen bee of the school. A boorish pretty boy whose bucket list is to date every girl in school. A handsome but deceitful prince who wants to graduate with even more power. A sheep who thinks there are some creatures that are above others.

Imagine the possibilities, the love stories, the adventures…

Gracia Hughes’ Quiche

I am both excited for and dreading the live action Fullmetal Alchemist movie. While we get the see the boys in all their disproportionately-sized fury and ass-kicking, we may also see Hughes die again. 

How many times must we witness this. 

At least he was allowed to experience Gracia’s tasty quiche before death. Recipe is below the cut.

Nessian + 19 and 27 😉

19. Who loves to call the other one cute names?

Cassian definitely. Nesta acts as she hates it but even after hundred years, when Cassian calls her Sweetheart, she melts.

But imagine them having lunch and Nesta goes “Do you want more potatoes, honey”. And they both froze, Cassian with his fork halfway to his mouth. Nesta is close to panic attack/mental breakdown because she expects that Cassian will tease her to death but he just continues to eat and pretends nothing happened (he is dying and screaming inside)

27. Who takes a long shower/ Who sings in the shower?

Cassian is a singing diva. He sings ALL the time. But singing in a shower is his favourite. He says his shower is perfectly built for singing I will always love you, his fav song. Sometimes Nesta goes with him just so he’d shut up. He doesn’t complain.

“The initial idea was, ‘Why would Vader live here?’ In our minds, we started to come up with a little bit of a backstory. That perhaps this place had special meaning for him, and that this is where he comes to meditate and to heal himself. We started with the idea that maybe it should be built around his bacta tank chamber, and he comes back here to rejuvenate himself and also to meditate. So from there, the structure itself grew out from the bacta tank, and there were certain ideas that we tried.”

“We were trying to go for a very iconic shape, and we always love tall towers. Ralph McQuarrie actually drew quite a few small thumbnail sketches [of Vader’s castle] that were very intriguing. They were kind of angular versions of a tower, and I saw the potential of where he was going, and I just exaggerated that quite a bit. One of things we landed on early was this idea of a tuning fork — a twin tower kind of look. And it was really interesting, because then that started to give Gareth a lot of ideas like, ‘Well, maybe the structure is built this way because it is like a tuning fork. It’s tuning the dark side in terms of the energy.‘”

“I always thought that was such a compelling image, because you have this lava lake inside this cave and there was Vader’s throne. So we took that idea and thought, “Okay, well, maybe on the lower levels of Vader’s castle, there’s a more ancient part. That he actually built this castle on a foundation of an ancient structure.” If you look at the finished design, it has this very strong element of a structure that was there for a purpose, and that purpose was to draw energy from the lava lake. If you look at the design of the base, it feels very much like a dam, and how the lava flows through it, possibly getting energy. And so we thought, “Okay, well, that’s the foundation. Maybe even deeper, or underneath that, is an even more ancient part, which is a natural cave where Vader goes to meditate.” Visually, we’re trying to create a sort of history for the tower. The bottom is the most ancient, the lava lake dam part was perhaps what Vader built his foundation on, and then the tower was Vader’s addition.”

Doug Chiang, Rogue One co-production designer

“I pitched the idea and I was like, ‘I want to go see where Vader is. I want to see where he lives when he’s not working for the Empire. He’s somewhere.’ And I loved this whole castle on Mustafar, that he had chosen to build his house in the place where Skywalker dies and Darth Vader was born. And he doesn’t ever talk about it. It doesn’t show. And it’s something I think, Star Wars fans really responded to. They loved the idea that it shows this really dark, almost kind of masochistic side to the character, because it shows he goes back to almost his gravesite to build his house. And there is something kind of really tragic about that. And maybe a hint in a very, very slight way, maybe it hints at the idea that you mentioned that the Jedi in Anakin is still alive in him.”

Gary Whitta, co-writer for Rogue One

continuation of apostasia marrying fem!mm please? >o<

The gemstone topped ring gleamed on her hand as Add cut herself a large slice of cake. While she had made a cake large enough for a wedding bigger than this one, as the after party died down a large portion of the cake was gone. Add was here for her third slice. Ain stared at her judgingly.

“What?“ she caught him staring, with a fork full of cake in her hands. She stuck it in her mouth despite him. Ain sighed deeply.

“You always loved sweets,” he answered and moved over to her, uninterested in the cake. He took the plate out of her hands and gently put it on the table, to replace with his own– and Add spotted a similar gold ring on his hand.

Holding each other they looked over to the darkening pavilion as the sun set and the tired Elgang conversing with themselves. “The party’s almost over. What do you plan to do?“

Add turned over to him, not letting it show that she was surprised to see Ain taking initiative for once. She squeezed both of his hands and gave him a light smile. "We could go home… or we can dance?“

so I made a really good soup for dinner but I made significant changes to the original recipe so I’m typing out what I wrote down earlier to save for later (feel free to reblog if you want though)

Dill Pickle Soup


  • 5 ½ C chicken broth
  • 1 ¾ lb Russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 2 C diced carrots
  • 1 C diced dill pickles
  • 1 whole stick of salted butter
  • 1 C sour cream
  • ¼ C water
  • 2 C dill pickle juice
  • 1 ¾ tsp Old Bay seasoning
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ C all-purpose flour
  • 1 heaping tbsp minced garlic


  1. combine broth, potatoes, carrots, minced garlic and butter in a large pot. bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender (breakable with a fork). use a hand-masher to break the potatoes apart into bite-sized pieces, then add the diced pickles. continue to boil.
  2. in a medium bowl, combine the sour cream, flour, and water until it becomes a well-incorporated paste. whisk the mixture 2 tbsp at a time into the soup. you’ll see some clumps of flour but between the mixing and boiling, they will break up. continue until all of the mixture has been added to the soup. it will start to thicken after a few spoonfuls.
  3. add the pickle juice, Old Bay, salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper. taste the soup and adjust the seasoning to your personal preference. continue to simmer for a few more minutes and then remove from heat and serve! 

this recipe makes enough for 2 people to eat and have plenty of leftovers. it reheats well and it’s super yummy!

We’re so short on time from running over on those chicken necropsies that when I realized I didn’t bring a fork or spoon for lunch today I chose to eat my salad with the lid and cup of my dressing container rather than waste precious time walking to the kitchen area which may or may not even have silverware.

I’m dripping with hungry desperation.

Aaron Sorkin is apparently talking with both WB and Disney for their DC and Marvel projects. Which project would you like him to take on?

MoS 2

I thought this was just another unfounded rumor but apparently it’s true, straight from the horse’s mouth:

“I happen to have meetings coming up with both DC and Marvel. I have to go into these meetings and tell them as respectfully as I can that I’ve never read a comic book. It’s not that I don’t like them, it’s just that I’ve never been exposed to one. So, I’m hoping that somewhere in their library is a comic book character that I’m gonna love and I’m going to want to go back and start reading from the first issue on.”

So basically, Aaron wants a new beach house and he’s meeting to see if he can get either company to fork over the down payment. In all seriousness I have a really hard time seeing Sorkin fitting in at the movie-by-committee world of shared cinematic universes, at best he signs on for one and then drops out a few months later after Johns or Fiege tells him to change his script to accommodate the movie that comes out after his. 

Assuming that I’m wrong and he does sign on however, I have a hard time narrowing down what he could or couldn’t do. His writing tends to deal with themes of power, the responsibility of it, how it affects a person, which goes nicely with just about every superhero ever. He also likes left wing politics and fast paced dialogue. He could probably write some good Daily Planet scenes.

So yeah, he should write MoS 2, not because I think he’d be perfect for the job but because I really fucking need MoS 2, it’s really all that I care about at this point, and even if he’s not perfect, we could do a lot worse than Sorkin.
