On Feb. 19, 2014, Brown was in Glasgow, Scotland, working on the “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.” A day before the concert, he and the production crew were restless, trying to figure out the lights and visuals; the choreographers and dancers were on the stage rehearsing routines. “We were all complaining and tired,” he remembers. “Everyone was also getting worried, freaking, like giving up on life ’cause she was on the way.” When Beyoncé arrived at the SSE Hydro stadium, she ran through the two-hour show, from top to bottom, once. And just like that, she left to catch a private jet to the Brit Awards in London, changed into her sparkly teal gown on the plane, and performed “XO” for the first time to a crowd of screaming fans. Following her performance, she flew back to Scotland, went straight back to the venue (still wearing the same teal sparkly gown), got up on the stage, and ran through the show twice. “She got off the stage and goes, “If I can do this, you guys can definitely do this,” Brown recalls. “She’s not human!” After that pep talk from one of the biggest artists of our time, Brown says he and the crew stayed up until the next day to make the show happen. “It was an eye-opening experience.”

Please Help!

Hi, my name is Cas and I’m trying to raise funds for my best friend (let’s call him E for the sake of his privacy). A little over a year ago he came out as transgender in my school. Our school was very respectful and welcoming to him and even made an all gender bathroom so that he and some other transgender students in our school were more comfortable. 

The only problem is, E cannot afford to change his name legally since it’s so expensive. All of his legal documents have his birth name and have caused him to be extremely uncomfortable in government and some school situations. So i’ve decided to take matters into my own hands and try to raise money so he can legally change his name. His birthday is coming up and i was hoping I could give this to him as a gift. I know it would mean the world to him. He’s always so kind and accepting to others and i just want him to feel comfortable and accepted. I won’t be uploading any pictures or videos because I want this to be a surprise!!  

His GoFundMe Page is https://www.gofundme.com/E-sLegalNameChange. Anything you donate would be greatly appreciated!! 

Thank you so much!

As promised, a continuation of my parallel universe ficlet (originally requested by impala-and-pies)

(Day 8)

It takes eight incredibly awkward days of avoiding Cas for Dean to notice that actually Cas is avoiding him right back. Or at least, he assumes that’s why Cas hasn’t shown his face for pretty much an entire week.

After the whole mortifying incident with the wardrobe (which Sam still hasn’t let him forget by the way), Dean’s been really trying not to think about maybe sneaking back to that other world and spending a few hours just being happy for a change. Because there’s no way he’s taking that chance. Sam’s been unbearable about it as it is.

Dean goes red just thinking about it actually.

After his smartass little ‘coming out of the closet’ joke (and wasn’t that just goddamn hilarious), Sam laughed for another 5 minutes straight. Dean had stormed out of the room after about 2 of those minutes but Sam came and found him about half an hour later. Apparently, after he’d stopped laughing, Sam had told Cas all about their little adventure in Narnia, or wherever the fuck it was, and Cas hasn’t been able to look Dean in the eye since.

So yeah, that was eight days ago now and Dean’s been so busy trying to avoid Cas that he’s only just noticed that he has barely actually seen the guy since it happened. Well, except for a few fleeting minutes in the mornings when they awkwardly skirt round each other at breakfast. Good times.

Top 30 longest AU fics 

1. He kissed my lips, I taste your mouth by @lovehoperomance [T, 290.6k]

When Louis moves into the flat next to Harry’s, neither of them thinks it will change their lives. Louis is stuck in a relationship with his controlling and overly possessive boyfriend who he loves too much to break up with.. Harry is content, seeking refuge from the snobby world he grew up in and forging a new path for himself. He does happen to have a habit of wanting to fix people though and when he meets Louis, the gorgeous man with a prat of a boyfriend, he finds himself trying to do just that. […] ~ 02.2016

2. you are in love by @softasurcheek [E, 270.9k]

The one where there’s late night coffee runs with deep conversations, lots of frat parties with cute frat boys, TV show references, numerous social network interactions, first kisses in the rain and a slow burn love story between two unlikely people. ~ 06.2016

3. A Breath Of Reality by Fluffyplum [M, 181.8k]

the one where Louis is a shit who doesn’t care and lashes out, and where Harry can relate and suffers from the consequences of having a heart that’s just a tad too big. ~ 02.2016

4. Bloodline by @banana-louis [E, 177.3k]

Louis doesn’t know how to feel when his best friend, Liam, finds out about a brother that he never knew, who was placed for adoption before he was born and is bursting into his life at twenty-four years old. […] He doesn’t like him. He doesn’t trust him. He doesn’t want him hanging around. He doesn’t want anything to do with him. That is, until he meets him. ~ 02.2016

5. you slow it down by aloequeera [E, 156k]

Louis’ off the pitch for at least ten months, and Harry helps distract him. It becomes more than that. ~ 06.2016

6. Nameless Night by @sadamenoito [E, 155k]

a fic about differences that make no difference at all: Harry and Louis are soulmates. In every way possible. Featuring Niall as a role model, and Liam and Zayn as a different kind of role models. ~ 04.2016

7. Going Nowhere Alone by @iamnoteternal [M, 153.7k]

There’s Harry, Edward and Marcel. Harry serves as pack leader to the last remaining house of werewolves. Edward, his brother, finds joy in sex and banter with strangers. Marcel plays along for as long as he can before morals corrupt his act.
Louis romanticises life so it doesn’t seem as shallow to him. Being Omega isn’t a joyride but three Alphas are determined to change that.
~ 05.2016

8. Lights Will Guide You Home by @louisxharry [M, 137.2k]

Louis Tomlinson is his school’s resident bad boy and easily the most liked person there. He’s loud and confident and popular. He spends most of his time abusing his parent’s money or partying or playing football. He also spends a good deal of it obsessing over the quiet curly boy in his English class, but no one really needs to know that.
Harry Styles is more or less invisible at the same school (unless he’s being harassed). He’s shy and painfully insecure and quiet. He spends most of his time crying on his bedroom floor with a razor pressed against his skin or trying (and failing) to think of reasons to stay alive.
So, of course, it’s inevitable that they fall for each other.
~ 04.2016

9.  Fake It Till You Make It by @avocadolouie [M, 136.7k]

In a twisted turn of events, Louis finds himself posing as the brother of his fiancé, Harry, for an annual company retreat. […] ~ 01.2016

10. Waifs and Strays by adidaslouis [E, 134k]

In a world of intolerance, a corrupt political system, and starving homeless children, Louis Tomlinson (the leader of a gang of 30 children) kidnaps Harry Styles (the son of a stinking rich family) for ransom money in order to survive. ~ 03.2016

Conversation I just had:

Me: (about Solas) So basically he’s in the unfortunate position of actually having the power to evoke instantaneous change the world but then must shoulder the responsibility when those actions are inevitably flawed as he is not actually a god. So keeps trying to fix it, ultimately leading to more destruction.

He: (having never played the game) So, in essence, this dude is putting himself on a pedestal then hating himself when he can’t possibly live up to these insane standards, and so then putting himself on progressively higher pedestals trying to fix his increasingly huge failings rather than accepting his limitations.

Me: Yeah! Exactly!

He: So how is it that a character who is approximately 8,000 years old is still struggling with a 35-year-old’s problem?

Me: …. huh…. that is a very good question… 

He: Sounds to me like this guy needs a beer and a Rick and Morty episode to chill the fuck out.

Me: Oh my god… that’s exactly what he needs! That’s all he’s ever needed.

He: Dragon Age 4: “Listen, Solas, Nobody’s born on purpose. Nobody belongs anywhere. Everyone’s gonna die. Come watch T.V.”

Me: And then it’s just 90 hours of banging and enjoying life!

He: I’m calling Bioware right now.



I didn’t realize how much I’d been doodling so I broke some of them off to put in another post. Here are some guards, a couple robots, a bunch of demons, and some meaty ghost things. Trying to go for stuff that’s really unsettling to look at.

Been kinda sparse around here. Trying to get out of an art funk while trying to get concepts for side stuff kinda just made me more frustrated when I couldn’t make drawing happen.

Forcing myself to work on monster stuff was kind of a nice change.

I’ve been doing this project at work where I have to transcribe countless articles about Bernie Sanders from the 1970s and 80s because we don’t have them digitally.

Doing this has taught me one very important thing about Bernie as a politician and a person. He has been saying the same exact things for 40 years.

He’s been fighting for the same things; promoting the same things; opposing the same things. His view on the world hasn’t shifted. In the 1970s when he was losing election after election he was radical because he didn’t agree with politicians being bought by corporations. But he didn’t change his tune to win, he just pushed onward in good faith that people would listen when the time was right.

This is why I have such a deep respect for Bernie. Because for 40 years he’s been trying to make the world better for people, actual living breathing people, not corporations. And despite 40 years of the country still being that way, and the government deciding that corporations have the same rights as people, he hasn’t given up his vision that human beings are more important than wealth.

It’s not political bullshit to gain votes (because for years he didn’t get any). It’s not a lie to try to get poor people to vote for him. It’s persistence, and respect for people everywhere–not just the ones with the deepest pockets.

And that’s really important.

nathan scott is the most precious character on earth don’t fight me on this

Hurt!Michael [closed RP]

Michael landed in a small town and crashed right through a roof. He lay there among the debris, almost paralyzed by pain, his enormous white wings spread out. He broke a few bones but he had much worse injuries from the attack before his fall, deep cuts and stabs - his brothers made sure none of them were fatal but they hurt a lot and he was bleeding.

They turned on him because he wanted peace.

When Lucifer got free, he realized he just couldn’t do this. Couldn’t fight the brother he once loved so much. Casting him down was painful enough, spending all this time without him even worse. But at least Michael knew he was alive.

But when he told the angels they should at least try to talk with Lucifer, to see whether he’d changed since his fall, whether he’d probably be ready to repent what he had done and solve this without an Apocalypse, without destroying the world, they - especially Raphael - went berserk. They wouldn’t listen. They attacked him and almost killed him - he didn’t fight back, he tried to reason with them.

Then they cast him down.

And now here he was, barely alive, in someone’s barn, so weak that he was unable to move.

I was kind of crying when I wrote it [‘Here Today’]. It’s like a dialogue with John. One of my feelings even when he used to lay into me was that he really didn’t mean it. I could always see why he was doing it. There was this spectre of me, which I understand because he had to clear the decks just like I did. In the song, John would hear me saying that and say 'Oh, piss off, you don’t know me at all. We’re worlds apart. You used to know me but I’ve changed.’ But I felt I still knew him. The song is me trying to talk back to him, but realising the futility of it because he is no longer here, even though that’s a fact I can’t quite believe, even to this day. The 'I love you’ part was hard to say . A part of me said, 'Hold on. Wait a minute. Are you really going to do that?’ I finally said, 'Yeah, I’ve got to. It’s true.’
—  Paul, April 1982 interview promoting “Tug of War”

Spoiler alert!

One of the most intriguing parts of Captain America: Civil War is no doubt the role The Winter Soldier is going to end up playing. Chris Evans says that, “the dynamic of Bucky pours gasoline on the open flame” between Steve and Tony, while Sebastian Stan makes it clear that the version of the character we’ll see here is going to be very emotionally complex. “He’ll never just be Bucky Barnes again. This movie, for him, is very much the good wolf and the bad wolf coming together – or maybe not coming together. So when is he triggered? When is he remembering things? He’s trying to find out about himself, his past, and what sort of world he’s in.”

It’s that relationship between Steve and Bucky which is really going to change how this battle plays out, and Joe Russo adds: “He and Steve have the emotional connection of brothers – even more so because Bucky was all Steve had growing up. Bucky was his protector, and that dynamic shifted when Steve Became Captain America, and now it has shifted again. The Cap-Bucky story is a love story; he can’t let go of his brother. He can reconcile Bucky’s crimes, but other people have no emotional context for Bucky, and they need to point the finger. We have no idea if he’s a hero or a villain. People are going to walk out arguing about that too.”

Interestingly, the magazine also reveals that The Winter Soldier is taken away in shackles for “psychological evaluation” while Steve meets with General Ross; could it be that Cap helps him to escape from that facility?

Another sorta-satire thing I like about MP100 is that Teru is *technically* the “bad guy becomes a friend” trope, but unlike more srs shows where this takes forever and is very serious with their 14 year olds, he acts like. well. a dumb middle schooler about the whole thing?

I mean. The kid went from “flinging knives at the protagonist” to “loyal pal” in under an episode. When Mob beat his ass without even trying he jumped straight to the “Oh, jeez, I guess we’re friends now” bit, just. immediately.
He wasn’t even hurt in this ‘epic battle’ he was trying to have. He got his haircut ruined. and that changed his whole worldview. His ‘im the chosen one to take over the world’ phase just sort of… dissolved, and he was back like the next day with a ridiculous wig and a heart full of equally-sudden loyalty. That’s the most “middle school” redemption arc I can possibly think of.

So let me get this straight

When the prime minister of Israel said that terrorism is a horrible plague, the prime minister of France LAUGHED and said he’s exaggerating.
Guess who the fuck is laughing now. (Hint: it’s the terrorists)
It just feels pretty fucking bad that we’ve (Israel) been trying to warn the world and telling just HOW MUCH this is a horrible way to live.
For the past months chaos reigns in Israel. Every day there are more terrorist attacks, every time I open the news, I hear about another innocent person/ kid/ family getting BRUTALLY MURDERED.
But nobody gives a shit about us. Antisemitism anyone?
So all the people who change their Facebook photos to France’s flag- where the fuck were you last summer when over 60 kids died? Where are you now, when people are so scared of getting murdered they don’t leave their house? This is total bullshit. It may not be 9/11 but it’s just as much people, if not more.

It’s a lesson he learned from Beyoncé. On Feb. 19, 2014, Brown was in Glasgow, Scotland, working on the “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.” A day before the concert, he and the production crew were restless, trying to figure out the lights and visuals; the choreographers and dancers were on the stage rehearsing routines. “We were all complaining and tired,” he remembers. “Everyone was also getting worried, freaking, like giving up on life ’cause she was on the way.” When Beyoncé arrived at the SSE Hydro stadium, she ran through the two-hour show, from top to bottom, once. And just like that, she left to catch a private jet to the Brit Awards in London, changed into her sparkly teal gown on the plane, and performed “XO” for the first time to a crowd of screaming fans. Following her performance, she flew back to Scotland, went straight back to the venue (still wearing the same teal sparkly gown), got up on the stage, and ran through the show twice. “She got off the stage and goes, “If I can do this, you guys can definitely do this,” Brown recalls. “She’s not human!” After that pep talk from one of the biggest artists of our time, Brown says he and the crew stayed up until the next day to make the show happen. “It was an eye-opening experience.

I have this cute tattoed punk with undercuts and coloured hair who’s also a tall asexual and aromantic character who’s like everyone’s dad and he’s very sweet but usually exasperated with the rest of the characters like “NO, KAI, GIRLS DON’T LIKE WHEN YOU FART FOR ONE MINUTE AROUND THEM. AND CALLING YOURSELF ‘FART KAING’ DOES NOT MAKE IT COOLER.”









Literally everything Peggy Carter goes through with her male counter parts is basically what it’s like to be a woman even today. When Agent Thompson tells her “You’re a woman, no man will ever see you as an equal. It’s sad, but it doesn’t make it any less true”, he’s not saying it to be mean, he’s saying it because he honestly believes that that’s just the way it is, and it can’t change, so why bother trying?

Having Peggy live through that on screen and having her still keep going, still kicking ass and doing what she knows needs to be done despite being told she can’t because she’s a woman, is important. It’s important because people still think today the way the 1940s Agent Thompson thinks. It’s important because we’re not being presented with a female character who just accepts this view and makes her world in it – we’re getting Peggy, and we’re being shown a strong, wonderful person society is attempting to make into something less than what she is simply because she’s a woman. It’s important because we’re not seeing just her rebelling against societal expectations. We’re seeing her being hurt because of them, too. She was made to be real.

And really, all I want to do is thank Marvel for making Agent Carter, for standing behind it despite the ratings and criticism, because I really need[ed] to see someone face the same sorts of opinions on women that I face, and keep going in spite of it.

So yeah, Marvel. Thank you.

Am I the only one who wants more information on Dudley? I want a detailed account of how The World’s Biggest Dickhead Eleven Year Old turned into The Inarticulate But Well-Intentioned Sweetheart Who Leaves Tea For His Cousin. When did Dudley realize the error of his dickhead ways? Did he change at school and around his friends as well or just in the way he treated Harry? Did he ever realize how horribly his parents treated Harry? Did he feel guilty over this? Did he ever try to learn more about this wizarding world in order to understand his cousin better? Did he ever truly grasp how important Harry was to the wizarding world and how much danger he had been in? How did Dudley find love? How was his life altered by having lived with The Boy Who Lived? After the war did he try to really reconcile with Harry? Who initiated the We’ll Send Each Other Christmas Cards relationship? Did Dudley know when Harry got married? Was he invited to the wedding? Did he care whether he was or not? Did he invite Harry to his wedding? Did he know when Harry’s kids were born? Did he let Harry know when his kids were born? I need answers and more detailed character development for Dudley Dursley.
