gold satchel

Secret of the Scarlet Hand [x]

I know many of my friends have summer internships and jobs lined up, including myself. While I’m not planning on stumbling on a mystery like Nancy does in SSH, I certainly wouldn’t be opposed! To create a look inspired by that game, pair a cream blouse with a tan blazer, a tribal print skirt, a studded skinny belt, ribbon tie oxfords, a scalloped satchel, a gold phone case, and a jeweled headband. Handprint earrings, a pendant necklace, gold and pearl bracelets, a pyramid ring, and a triangle pair ring complete the look.

Can we just take a moment and appreciate that it is fall and with fall comes Tim Burton movies and Tim Burton Movies AU for our lovely Mchanzo and Gency.

Jesse Mccree is the only son to Gabriel Reyes and Jack Morrison, who are wealthy townsfolk.  The two of them want Jesse to get married, but Jesse does not want to. Gabriel and Jack decided to set Jesse up with the lovely Angela Ziegler. The two of them are less then pleased about this to say the least. With the wedding being a day away, Mccree sneaks off into the woods after humiliating himself trying to say his wedding vows during the practice. While in the woods Jesse ends up saying his vows perfectly and places the ring onto what he thinks is a tree branch. Little did Jesse know that he awoke the Corpse Groom. When Jesse woke up he was he was in a bar full of…Dead people. Freaking out, a Green haired man shoved the Corpse groom out of the way and starts to tell a story to Jesse. 

“Well our boy was a beauty known for miles around ‘Till a mysterious stranger came into town. She was plenty good lookin’, but down on her cash and our poor little dragon, he fell hard and fast. When his daddy said no, he just couldn’t cope So our lovers came up with a plan to elope. So they conjured up a plan to meet late at night. They told not a soul, kept the whole thing tight. Now his Father’s tux fit like a glove. You don’t need much when you’re really in love, except for a few things, or so I’m told. Like the family jewels and a satchel of gold. Then next to the grave yard by the old oak tree. On a dark foggy night at a quarter to three. He was ready to go, but where was she…? And then Dragon, everything went black. Now when he opened his eyes he was dead as dust. His jewels were missin’ and his heart was bust. So he made a vow lyin’ under that tree,that he’d wait for his true love to come set him free. Always waiting for someone to ask for his hand, When out of the blue comes this groovy young man. Who vows forever to be by his side and that’s the story of our corpse groom.”

Jesse learned that the groom and the green haired man are brothers. The green haired man named Genji was murdered after seeing his brother’s murder. Jesse also learns the Grooms name is Hanzo. After some time, Jesse and Hanzo fall in love with each other and Jesse agrees to end his life to be with. 

Back in the living world, Jesse is believed to have ran off with a mysterious man, Angelia is to to be married off to a rich woman named, Amélie Lacroix. The two of them get ready for their wedding. At the same time, Jesse, Hanzo, Genji and the rest of the underworld arrive to see the wedding of the human and the Corpse Groom. 

Amélie and Angelia arive at the church only to walk in on Jesse and Hanzo’s wedding. Hanzo and Genji turn to see the Amélie smirking at them. 

“You” Hanzo growled as Amélie laughed walking towards the alter. “You know her?” Jesse asked confused. Hanzo quickly pushed Genji behind him. “She’s the one that murdered us.”  Amélie laughed before pulling out a knife. “Looks like I never finished the job” she growled before leaping at Hanzo, only to have Jesse quickly pull out his peacekeeper and shot her in the shoulder. As the two fought, Amélie shoved Jesse into the podium, slamming his head into the wood, causing him to bleed. Grabbing the wine glass, Amélie rises it in Hanzo’s direction. “Here’s to Hanzo, The best man never the groom.” Before drinking from it. Within a few moments, Amélie starts chocking and gasping for air. The members of the underworld (The other overwatch members) drag Amélie - who is now dead - back to the underworld screaming. 

Hanzo runs over to Jesse, helping him up. Genji grabbed the book that had fallen off the alter. “Shall we finish the…” He trailed up looking at the woman standing in the alter in a wedding gown. “Angelia?” Genji asked causing the bride to be to start crying before running into his arms. “I though I lost you!” She cried before hugging Genji tighter. Jesse and Hanzo raised an eyebrow. “you know her?” Genji and Angelia looked up. “We were meant to be married in secret.” Hanzo just smirked, shaking his head. 

Angelia and Jesse looked at each other, cheering their wine glasses together before drinking the poison together. After a few moments, Jesse and Angelia stopped breathing and their hearts stopped beating. Smiling, Jesse took Hanzo’s hand and Genji took Angelia’s. Together the four walked back to the underworld together. To live happily ever after. 

And that is the story of the Corpse Groom…

Just like when they brought Adrienne, Camile, and Taylor back to RHOBH, Jacqueline back to RHONJ, and Alexia back to RHOM,

Bravo has now brought back not one but two RHONY former cast members.

We already know that Bethenny has returned to the show full-time, but recently Kelly Bensimon has been seen filming a couple times, including reportedly at Bethenny’s birthday party.

I see the return of the iconic Bethenny-Kelly feud if she ends up making the cut.

A Rucas Fanfic

Rucas Week - Day 2 - Rucas in High School

Story by: @hoffkk

Summary:  Lucas takes Riley to a Knicks game for her birthday and as they find themselves caught in the kiss cam, old feelings are stirred up and sparks go flying, making them both question their friendship. Are their feelings for each other powerful enough to finally make them take the next step?

Note: I love the scene in GMW with Riley’s Knicks rant and how Lucas just falls for her even more because of it.  It’s so adorable and precious, so I decided to do a throwback/shout out to that scene and play off of it.  Hope you like what I came up with!  Happy Rucas Week Day 2!

“Help me out, man. I need an idea.”  Lucas begged his friend as he drove them home from basketball practice.  Riley’s birthday was only a few days away and Lucas wanted to get her the perfect gift. He just didn’t know what that was.

“Dude, you still haven’t gotten her anything?”  Zay asked.

“Nothing seems right.” Lucas tried to defend.

“Just get her some flowers.” Zay suggested.

“That’s too impersonal.” Lucas said, rejecting the idea.

“So, get her jewelry.”  Zay offered.

“That’s too personal…I mean, it’s not like we’re dating.” Lucas explained.

“Yeah, and why is that exactly?” Zay asked, eagerly awaiting an answer.  After all of the eighth grade drama, Lucas and Riley and Maya all stayed friends, but over the last four years, the gang could tell that Riley and Lucas were still very much into each other and figured it was only a matter of time before they gave in and became a couple.

“I told you. It’s not what Riley wants.” He shrugged.

“Okay, let’s pretend for a second that I actually believe that that’s true…what about what you want?” Zay inquired, knowing his friend has been pining after Riley for years.

Lucas paused, opened his mouth and closed it as he took a moment to gather his thoughts. “What I want is to get her the perfect present.  Period.” Lucas said finally.

“Fine.  I digress.” Zay gave up…for now.

“Digress?” Lucas asked, surprised by his friend’s use of the word.

“I’ve been doing SAT test prep with Farkle.” Zay shrugged.

“Ah,” Lucas said, thinking the world was suddenly making sense again.

The car grew quiet as the listened to the radio drone on.

Remember, if you call in at the top of the hour, you have a chance to win tickets to this Friday’s basketball game and watch the Knicks take on the Heat.”  The radio announcer ranted on.

Lucas suddenly found himself grinning from ear to ear.  "That’s it.“  He said more to himself than to Zay as he recalled a fond memory of him and Riley.

"You know anything about sports?” Lucas asked Riley as they sat at Topanga’s, hanging out as friends again now that things were back to normal.

“No…” Riley trailed off.

“No?” Lucas asked, not totally convinced of her answer. Something in her tone made him think maybe she did know a thing or two.  "Any sports?  Like…what about basketball?  You know anything about basketball?“

"Yeah…” She said, casually admitting the truth.

“Yeah?” He questioned for clarification.

“Yeah.” She said again, this time sounding more confident.

“Yeah?” He couldn’t help but say again. “Maybe?”

“Well, we’re in New York, so obviously my favorite team is the Knicks…and, you know, this might not be our best year, but at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter because we’ve have ‘Melo, we have Phil Jackson, and that’s all that counts.  We shouldn’t have traded J.R. Smith, and at the end of the day, it’s not our best season.  We have a terrible record.  We’re the worst in the NBA.  I am at Madison Square Garden, and I see all these fake fans jumping onto bandwagons like the Heat or something like that, and you know what?  That s not what a true fan is.  If you are gonna be in the Garden, you better represent the Knicks!” Riley finished, pointing a finger at Lucas for emphasis.

Suddenly embarrassed by her little outburst, she feigned coolness and leaned her head against her palm. “I don’t know that much, obviously…” She added nervously, willing away the blush on her cheeks.

Lucas just stared at her in awe.  He never heard a girl talk about sports like that.  It was amazing and sent a funny feeling swirling around in his stomach.

“I really like you, Riley.” Lucas found himself saying before he could stop himself.

Riley just giggled in response, her blush growing deeper.

“What are you on about?” Zay queried, so consumed by his phone, he didn’t hear the radio.
