Alex’s 2012 Cosplay!

Figured I would do one of these since I’ve seen them going around~ So this was the year of Homestuck (and poor lonely simon up there).  I haven’t been part of such a big fandom in a long time and it was really quite the experience and most definitely something I never expected!  There are so many amazing and talented people in this fandom I’m honored to be a part of it.  ;w; Click below for the original post and additional credit!

I think making Blitz with bendy arms was the most fun I’ve had making a figure in a long time. o3o 

I derped around with him quite a bit, but I think he turned out quite cute!! His arms are very fun to play with. These are some of my favorite shots of him~

the things that we find
Liam/Louis, 18000 words

The guy is watching him with a funny expression that disappears so quickly Louis must have imagined it. It’s late; he’s projecting. “Have a good night,” the guy offers, smiling at Louis. “Thanks again for the tip with the timetable.”

"My pleasure," says Louis, because I’m probably going to wank to your smile isn’t really appropriate. “Thanks for the concert.”

"It was a one-time only deal," the guy shouts after him, waving and grinning, and as Louis finds a seat on the bus and falls into it, he can’t stop himself from thinking fuck, I hope not.

for theboycanthelpit, who is lovely, and based on the following prompt from this post of awkward first meeting AUs:

Your headphones aren’t plugged in all the way so I know you’re listening to educational children’s cartoon theme songs


Whoa, reading 16th century Spanish? Not just a grave robber after all, huh? 


holy shit im having so much fun on vine


they’re not the kind of couple who uses them - in the conventional way.

Thanks to cacatuasulphureacitrinocristata for some of the better pet names (cacti goddess, pineapple of my eye) and jazzie560 for helping me with the idea.


“Just sit down, dear.”

It slipped out of him so easily, so quickly, that she almost missed it.

And it wasn’t even meant in a sarcastic way, or at least she hoped. His eyes were drawn on the newspaper he had in front of him, his concentration all but focused on anything but her. So if it was so easily said, does that mean he thought those names in his head?

She grimaced.

Petnames. Temari hated petnames.

Because it reminded her of embarrassing, pre-adult, giggling teens. Romances that were only as shallow as a fingernail, filled with idiotic promises of an eternity together. And to have her husband call her such, well, she was repulsed, to say the least.

And dear? Dear? Nevermind the fact it rhymed with his clan’s signature animal, but it was so foreign to her that she did sit down, abruptly, and draw the book she had just an arms length away toward her. Flipping open the page, she retaliated, “Okay, sweetie.”

Tumblr, you led me to believe that Jupiter Ascending was going to be a bug fun space movie with pretty people, explosions, dinosaurs, evil Eddie Redmayne, and I set my expectations accordingly.

What you didn’t tell me that it was also going to be the possibly the most believable, best thought-out sci-fi film I’ve ever seen, engaging and intriguing, touching tantalizingly on themes worthy of the best sci-fi authors*, with a quick detour on beauraucracy that Douglas Adams himself would have smiled upon, all while still managing to fun as hell and eminently consumable. And for that I thank you, because it was a delight to be constantly surprised at how much better this movie was than I ever expected.

Wachowski siblings, you are wonderful. Please keep doing you. Hell, I don’t even care if you pull another Matrix with the sequels. I’ll watch them first-run, because I’m so sad that I waited so long to see this.

*I say touching on, because it’s still a big fun space movie, and can’t begin to flesh things out (heh) as they could be or be actually incisive. But as far as underlying themes and backstory go, A+++ great writers will watch again expectations blown the fuck out of the water.
