1. Constant state of low-key misery brought on by not getting tickets the first time around. I’m really happy for all five of you that got tickets to the original tour, but I also wouldn’t be mad if you fell seriously ill and had to sell them to me. What’s that? Oh yes, you can definitely eat mayonnaise after it’s been left out in the sun for 36 hours.
2. Elation that Harry has added additional tour dates. This must be what it feels like to win the lottery, or at least trivia night when you’re playing against your nemesis who thinks you’re stupid for remembering how many Twilight movies there are. (Sorry bro, but you’re the idiot for not knowing the answer is five.)
3. Fear that they’re at even smaller venues than the original tour. I swear to god if he tries to do this at some 500-person club, I will take a lighter to my special-edition vinyl copy of Harry Styles and never look back.
4. Return of the elation when you realize it’s a stadium tour. Goddamn it, Harry, this is a real roller coaster! My emotions haven’t gotten this much of a workout since March 25, 2015. (If you have to ask what happened on that date, you will be denied entry at the door of each and every tour stop.)
5. Anxiety that will not abate until the on-sale date arrives. “Well, doctor, my symptoms are I can’t eat, I can’t sleep, and every time I see photos of Harry Styles, it feels like I’m having a heart attack.”
6. Unadulterated rage at Ticketmaster for implementing this insane Verified Fan program. So much for getting an American Express card just so I could participate in the American Express presale. This really feels like a personal attack.
7. Terror that you will not receive a Verified Fan code. What the hell does “randomly selected” mean, Ticketmaster? Is this sweatshirt I’m wearing of all Harry’s tattoos where they are on his body not verification enough for you?
8. Intense preparation the likes of which you have not undertaken since studying for your SATs. Code, copy and pasted. Credit cards, staged. Ticketmaster account, logged into. Boyfriend, enlisted to try for the other dates within public transit distance. All systems go!
9. More rage. Oh my god, so much rage. HOW? HOW, HARRY? HOW COULD THEY ALREADY BE SOLD OUT? IT’S BEEN 0.00001 SECOND. HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME? I LOVED YOU. IS WHAT WE HAD NOT REAL?
10. Denial that there could somehow be only one single ticket left in the entire arena. This thing seats 20,000 people, and you’re telling me there aren’t two seats left together in the entire building?
11. Acceptance that you will just have to buy that one ticket and sit alone. I’m a strong, independent woman who doesn’t need a concert buddy. Anyone who thinks it’s weird that a 30-year-old adult is sitting alone at a Harry Styles concert is obviously just jealous that they’re not brave enough to sit alone at a Harry Styles concert.
12. Annoyance at someone having the gall to text you during your Very Important Ticket Buying Session. The nerve. I am Very Busy right now and cannot be bothered, especially if this is you, Verizon, texting to say that I’m almost out of data. I fucking know, OK?
13. HOLY SHIT, IT’S TICKETMASTER SAYING HE’S ADDED ANOTHER DATE. Praise be to the most high Beyoncé (I assume this was her doing).
14. Prayer and reflection. “Dear Lord, I know I haven’t been to church since George W. Bush was in office, but I promise I’ll go back and never take Your name in vain again if You find me four tickets together, so I can sit with the whole crew.”
15. A feeling of deep satisfaction and peace. VICTORY IS MINE! See you in church on Sunday.
Yee I’m just gonna copy paste an answer from askfm and add a few more

Who are your recommended Wonder Woman writers over the years? I've read a fair bit of her comics but that's because I was new and couldn't really appreciate which was bad characterisation and which was good. tho looking back my gut feeling about the new52 run was right in saying that it was an A+ Trainwreck, despite how much I love the art. But for the life of me I can't figure out who wrote which arc and etc. I was hoping you could help 😂
Sure thing!! I hope you don’t mind if I copy/paste from a previous recs post!

The ones in bold are my personal favorite stories that I recommend to pretty much everyone.
I would also like to add that I have heard just wonderful things about The Legend of Wonder Woman (2015- ) and am going to pick it up myself soon. I also will admit I have a slight blindness toward the Pre-Crisis Wondy books, having never been the biggest fan of them myself. I would also recommend that if you’re interested, Wonder Woman: The True Amazon is a very interesting read, though I have very major critiques of it.
Also if you’re a child at heart like me at all, you must pick up the issues of Scooby-Doo Team-Up with Themyscira because they’re wonderful and Daphne and Velma become honorary Amazons.
Copied straight from Discord, rambling about Strange Magic
*wakes up with sudden realization* through the song lyrics referenced, during the scene where the bog king and Marianne are making fun of people in love, they’re both making fun of their past selves in a way that’s really subtle because that whole scene makes it seem like they’re mainly making fun of other people (which they definitely are, but the scene is now surprisingly about subtly venting to someone about their pain involving love and getting validation from someone that they’re allowed to be in pain, that’s the subtle reason for why their romantic music number is immediately after this scene: they’re the only people in the world that have found their pained responses to their hurt about love *valid* whereas everyone else has basically told them both to get over it, you’re being weird Marianne/Bog).
Marianne is making fun of herself by referencing Can’t Help Falling In Love with You, which is the first music number we see her sing at the very beginning of the movie where she’s hopelessly in love with Roland. For her, that song and lyrics now refers to her own weakness, blindness, and pain hence why later in the jail she starts wincing and putting her hands over her ears when the love dusted critters are singing it loudly. This is reinforced later, when Marianne switches songs at the end to Wild thing to confess to Bog, who himself starts with Can’t Help Falling In Love with You because he’s mirroring everything else since he’s not secure enough to try his own thing.
What made me realize that they were making fun of themselves was Bog’s reference in that scene where they’re making fun of love: one of Bog’s signature music numbers is a heavily modified version of Elvis Presley’s Trouble. It’s the one where he goes “Because I’m evil, my middle name is misery” the one where he overcompensates because his rep is that he’s the evil king of the dark forest, but every instance we see he’s not actually that bad. During the scene where they’re making fun of love, they reference Can’t Help Falling In Love but then Bog makes a weird transition while plucking petals out of a flower: “it’s like their middle names are misery”. That sat funny with me on my last watch of Strange Magic, but it’s what clicked that that scene is entirely them venting about how they feel about love and their past selves when they were in love. This makes the sudden transition after the Sugar Plum Fairy tells the story about how Bog messed up with the love potion, where Marianne offers up a vague history of her time with Roland, less surprising: rather than just comforting someone who is obviously hurt by having his scars thrown open and poured salt in the wounds, Marriane is also offering comfort to the one person in the entirety of the world who has ever approved of her choices.
*bats movie over the head* stop! Making me! Feel! Things!
I’m really upset that I can’t find a video of that scene because *it’s such a good scene!!!!*

Tell us about Hatori's feelings for Akito. I bet despite her being his God and that unwavering devotion that comes with it deep down he actually has conflicted feelings about her right? Like for example when she came into this world she was already taking Shigure away from him & changing him, THEN when Hatori finally moves on and manages to find someone he could truly love she goes and takes her away from him as well by scarring her for life! Does he secretly resent Akito for all that?
No, not at all. Not even remotely. Hatori holds no anger, hurt, resentment, or judgement for ANYONE, none the less the most important person in his life: his GOD. I’ve actually written about this before! Here is the original headcanon, and here is the copy & pasted version:
“I’ve used this headcanon on here for over a year four years now, but I’ve never gotten around to typing it up! In the canon material, we know that Hatori’s father was the previous memory suppressor and the previous sole physician of the Sohma Estate. Because of this, he was VERY CLOSE to Akira- the previous head of the family, before Akito. Being the head of the family, and being rather ill towards the end of his life, it wouldn’t be surprising, nor far-fetched to assume that Hatori’s father spent quite a bit of his time serving and being around Akira. Because of this, Hatori himself grew quite attached to the previous head.
Hatori’s father was unloving and cold, as was his mother- Akira was the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of them, he was warm and loving- Hatori very much saw a father figure in the male. More so than in his own. As Hatori’s father was SO LOYAL to Akira, it was expected for Hatori, as the memory suppressor, doctor, and now: DRAGON, to follow suit and GIVE HIS UNWAVERING LOYALTY TO AKITO. This was expected of him, and he obliged.
More so, it was AKIRA who instilled that moral code within the dragon; Hatori’s father hammered it into his mind to do whatever Akito said, TO STAY BY HER SIDE UNTIL DEATH. Akira, however, was nowhere near as militant. Instead, he simply encouraged Hatori to give her a chance, and he told him time and time again how special Akito was to him, and that he hoped the family would love her as much as he loved her.
Hatori’s admiration and unwavering devotion for Akira had already been set in stone, and as a little boy sitting on Akira’s lap, he promised to watch over Akito until his dying breath. A promise he would never, not once, TAKE LIGHTLY.
Of course, Shigure had THE DREAM about Akito- the dog very much felt as if it was HIS job to watch over Akito and protect her. When the canine caught wind of Hatori’s promise to Akira, it caused quite a bit of animosity between the of them. This is evident in their interactions- Shigure is always snarky, scathing- his way of taking his anger out on Hatori. To take his anger out on Akito, he uses and manipulates her. Shigure never got over that blinding jealousy of his, even to this day.
Because of this, even after the curse was broken- while all the other Sohma(s) began to spread out and leave the Estate, Hatori reminded in his home on the property, up until Akito finally decided to leave herself. The promise he made to Akira is one of the few things he has left to hold onto in his life; the thought of ever disappointing Akira is always looming over him. It also plays a factor in his lack of anger or resentment over the Kana situation- no one would blame him for holding on to some resentment after Akito took not only his sight in his left eye, but his PRIDE, and forced him to cast out of the love of his life. Even then, he could only FORGIVE HER, because he knew it was what Akira would’ve wanted.
I think a lot of people under-estimate Hatori’s loyalty to Akito. In the canon material, Hatori pushes himself to do things OUTSIDE HIS MORAL CODE- but only for HER. He is quick to judge Shigure for acting out and putting the family in harm’s way, but if Akito ordered him to do it, Hatori would do ANYTHING. His devotion is endless, and that in and of itself is completely terrifying. I think people need to take a second look at his character, he always hailed as a white-knight who can do no wrong, but Hatori is actually RATHER problematic, and very, very sick mentally. That is often over-looked, unfortunately.”
my dad is in the hospital right now due to heart problems and i just really need some sigils, chants, spells, anything that'll help him recover. his flight is tomorrow and he really wants to go and ofc i really want him to recover so all i could do is give him a boost pls help

On a more personal note, I love Gu Hai’s internal turmoil. He’s such a tsundere T.T
Enjoy the chapter and as always, look forward to more of Gu Hai and Bai Luo Yin!
Chapter 118: A Formidable Opponent
It was time for those, intense end of the semester, exams again. The frequent practical exams and various school assignments would, without a doubt, throw any student into a dreadful plight. The teachers would secretly compete with one another, as they cheerfully extended class time.
Before, they would take advantage of the fact that it was still light out and quickly return home, now, they virtually all stayed late into the night, studying to themselves. This happened from dusk till dawn every single day.
This kinds of rigorous studying environment were the direct consequences of Bai Luo Yin sleeping in class to recur.
It was only recently, that, under Gu Hai’s constant attentiveness, Bai Luo Yin was able to get rid of this pernicious habit. But now, it was beyond Gu Hai’s power.With so much homework, it’s impossible not to do it. After finishing all of the homework, it’s impossible not to go straight to sleep. Before sleeping, it’s impossible to not be intimate…right?
During independent studying class, Bai Luo Yin would continuously write and immediately after, he would rest his head and eventually fall asleep.
Gu Hai raised his head, eyes fixated on the boy in front of him, his chest tightened. Can’t do anything tonight but to sleep!
He then dug his hands into his desk’s drawer and pulled out his down jacket. After, he got out of his seat and draped it over Bai Luo Yin’s body.
At first, it was rather quiet in the classroom but without warning, it became noisy. Many of the students twisted their necks back, well to be more precise, turned toward the back doorway. Such a dull and uninteresting independent studying class, even the slightest sign of excitement would spark their curiosity. What’s more, this excitement wasn’t small either. Standing at the back doorway, was a beautiful girl.
Gu Hai used his tall stature to his advantage, turned to the side and glanced over the other students toward, the presumably, beautiful girl.
At this moment, even Gu Hai, whose specialty were ferociously aggressive girls, must admit, this girl was extremely beautiful. So beautiful that the environment in the room pale in comparison to her. She had a milky complexion that was almost transparent, with big doll like eyes, shaped similar to that of a westerner. Her dark pupils held within them a deep mixture of cleverness and sophistication. It seems her speech would also be that way.
Her physique was, for lack of better word, perfectly flawless; with slender waist, large bosom and long legs. She was wrapped up in world famous brands from head to toe, allowing her to look charming and graceful.
Spoken in modern term, she was tall, rich and beautiful*.
As a result, the group of poor short boys were completely unable to sit back down. If their eyes contained hooks, they would have already pulled the clothes right off of that beautiful girl’s body. What are you doing? Why are you dressed up so beautifully, standing at our classroom’s doorway and deliberately challenge our patience huh?
This girl was also not an ordinary person. There were many pairs of eyes focused on her, however she stood, unperturbed, at the doorway, unwavering. Her vision concentrated on a certain person.
When the class ended, there were no movements from anyone, so she took the initiative and walked in.
Gu Hai watched as she walked toward the desk in front of Bai Luo Yin. She lowered her body and crouched down. Her hands gently cupped her chin as she looked upward, smiling. This smile was called SWEET! It was so sweet that the hair on his body stood. What are you doing? Trying to seduce my wife in front of me? You have guts, daring to do something like this! You must be tired of living!
“Do you need something?” asked Gu Hai coldly.
The girl’s eyes shifted toward Gu Hai, with a heartwarming smile, a very touching smile. It was so bright that the cherry blossoms, outside, were quick to bloom earlier than usual.
Then she continued to use those blurred eyes to gaze lovingly at the person sleeping in front of her.
Gu Hai, secretly, clenched his teeth in hatred. Why am I a guy?
The atmosphere in the classroom had undoubtedly been revitalized as countless males’ eyes swept around the room, jealousy visibly written across their face. Such a brilliant and beautiful girl, why wasn’t she looking for me uh? Why do all good things get caught up by Bai Luo Yin?
Bai Luo Yin slept, still utterly oblivious. The girl never grew impatient waiting for him. She dragged over an empty stool, placed her chin into her hands and quietly sustained her gaze at Bai Luo Yin. She didn’t say anything and continued to patiently wait for him to fully wake up himself. Gu Hai betted, if Bai Luo Yin wasn’t going to wake up, this beautiful girl would definitely wait through the next class and when that class ended, she would continue to wait until the next one.
He who comes, comes with ill-intentioned*.
[*来者不善，善者不来 －one who comes, comes with ill-intentioned, certainly not by virtue; ‘beware of Greek’s bearing gifts’ is also used referring to the Trojan horse. ]
Finally, it was You Qi, seated closest to Bai Luo Yin, who couldn’t remain still.
This beauty was sitting to the side of him, doused in fragrance that offended his nostril, giving him rhinitis. Hence, this caused him to he turned around and tapped on Bai Luo Yin’s desk, “Wake up, there’s someone looking for you.”
Bai Luo Yin impatiently straightened up his body. His eyes were yet to be opened before he heard a commotion.
Bai Luo Yin thought that he was still dreaming. His expression remained frozen at that moment. Stupefied, he couldn’t say anything.
The beautiful girl waved her hand in front of Bai Luo Yin’s face, “What, you don’t recognize me already?”
Ba Luo Yin managed with great effort to reply back coherently, “Why are you back in the country?”
From just hearing those words, Gu Hai’s entire body, from his head to toe, stiffened. His heart, from his lungs, abdomen and all other internal organs eased to function. Shi Hui…since Bai Luo Yin spoken out that name in his drunken state, to nervously taking the phone outside to receive her call, Gu Hai had always been full of curiosity toward her. He had always thought in the depths of his heart, that this girl was merely a figment of his overheated imagination. An imaginary enemy. It was inconceivable to him that she was actually real. Yet to his surprise, she materialized in front of his very face.
Moreover, in such a formidable posture.
Beautiful and charming…exactly in conformity with Bai Luo Yin’s standard.
Gu Hai could even imagine, Bai Luo Yin’s blissful expression when the two rolled around in bed. He definitely wouldn’t refuse. He definitely wouldn’t have any complaints. He would, unquestionably, be like a vicious hunger stricken wolf, attacking forth, even the flesh at the hip bone would be wiped cleanly.
Once wouldn’t be enough, so there would be a second time…and after they were done, they would call each other baby baby baby as they whispered sweet nothings to each other, preparing, for the next battle…
Gu Hai’s heart was quickly bleeding out.
The sound of the bell going off signaled that the next class had started. Shi Hui quietly told Bai Luo Yin, “I’ll go out and wait for you.”
She then, stepped out of the classroom with a seductive movement and continued to wait at the doorway.
During the entirety of the class, Gu Hai didn’t do anything. His head, on the other hand, was undergoing a fierce warfare. He took the graph paper and with a pen he mapped out a strategic composition. Standing on one side were his subordinates, along with, thousands and thousands of army troops. Their unity was impenetrable. Bounded by a common hatred for the enemy. For the sake of their territory, they were all readied, willing to shed blood, lose their head and sacrifice their precious lives…
Bai Luo Yin’s head was chaotic. Standing outside of the classroom was not a person that could be easily dealt with, and sitting behind him was a person that was even harder to deal with. He felt knives stabbing into his back. He couldn’t help but turn around and met with a pair of warm orbs.
One was laughing, honestly laughing, and the other one was also laughing, a cold laughter.
He quickly turned away.
After class was dismissed, Bai Luo Yin gathered his belongings, under Gu Hai’s heated gaze, he readied to leave.
Shi Hui was still standing at the doorway and, although the corridor was heated, the windows still incessantly let air in. Standing there for the entirety of the class was, after all, not an easy task. Bai Luo Yin walked out just as Shi Hui placed her hand in front of her face, breathing out.
Her cheeks were tinted in red, lips still adorning a smile. There weren’t any complaints or impatience written on them.
“You…” Bail Luo Yin was, momentarily, at a loss for words.
Shi Hui spoke first, “Let’s have dinner together.”
Bai Luo Yin remained silent for quite some time before he dully said, “Let’s change it to another day. You’ve sat on the plane for a long time. Go back and rest.”
“I’m not tired,” said Shi Hui softly, “I already rested at home for an entire day.”
Gu Hai leaned against the back door as he monotonously threw out a sentence.
“Go. She came from far away just to see you and even waited an entire class for you, how could you have the nerve to refuse?”
Bai Luo Yin shot a sarcastic glance at Gu Hai. He doesn’t know if it was deliberate or if he originally had this intention, but he unexpectedly, really, nodded his head.
Gu Hai’s pupil blackened…I give you a leeway* and you really take it? Are you trying to infuriate me, you bastard?!
With a happy, bright and cheerful smile plastered on her face, Shi Hui grabbed onto Bai Luo Yin’s arm, preparing to leave.
Gu Hai blocked their only way, “You’re only inviting him, that’s inappropriate right?”
Shi Hui smiled weakly as she looked at Bai Luo Yin and then back at Gu Hai, not saying anything.
With hidden knives concealed in his smile, Gu Hai looked at Shi Hui, “Take me along, I also like pretty girls.”
Shi Hui was startled for a second before a bright and generous smile graced her face.
“Okay, we can go together.”
On the road, the three sat in the vehicle, Shi Hui in the front while Bai Luo Yin and Gu Hai occupied the back seat. Initially, no one said anything as they all remained quiet. Shi Hui gazed out the window, all the while, Gu Hai and Bai Luo Yin’s eyes assassinated each other.
“Bai Luo Yin, quick look, that lighted path, do you remember? That’s the vineyard. That time, you carried me on your back as we picked grapes. From this end to that end, we picked a big basket full of grapes.”
Whether Bai Luo Yin remembered or not, no one knew, but regardless, it remained with Gu Hai, indelibly imprinted in his memory.
At the restaurant, the three sat in a warmly lit, romantic private room. The atmosphere was, nonetheless, strange.
Shi Hui brought out an exquisitely wrapped box and passed it over to Bai Luo Yin, “This is the gift I brought back for you.”
The moment Bai Luo Yin took the box, he felt a pair of eyes settled on his arms, amputating them.
Shi Hui brought out another box and passed it to Gu Hai, “This is for you.”
“I don’t need it,” said Gu Hai sarcastically.
Shi Hui remained enthusiastic, “Why do you not need it? Since you’re here, don’t be modest.”
After saying that, she took the box and stuffed in Gu Hai’s hand and smiled very frankly and sincerely.
The more she was passionate and cute, fair and considerate, the more Gu Hai was disgusted with her.
Shi Hui seemed to not recognize Gu Hai’s hostility toward her, since she took the initiative to start a conversation with him.
“You must be Gu Hai right?”
Gu Hai’s eyes shifted slightly in admittance.
Shi Hui continued to smile, “It’s seems I guessed correctly. So, you are Major General Gu’s son, Bai Luo Yin’s younger brother. It’s hard to imagine that, you two would, unexpectedly, get along so well. Being able to make Bai Luo Yin accept this relations, is very strong of you Gu Hai.”
Gu Hai shot a death glare, full of questions, toward Bai Luo Yin.
“Didn’t you say, the two of you never talked before? How does she know everything?”
Bai Luo Yin’s eyes to attack back, “How would I know huh? I obviously never talked to her about it.”
The two, respectively, casted their sight elsewhere.
Bai Luo Yin’s brow, secretly, knitted together. Fuck, there’s a traitor*.
