Jughead Jones, little was known when it came to the strange but real teen that was almost always alone. Everybody knew that Jughead and Archie Andrews were best friends; after a short period no one knew why they didn’t hang together anymore.

There was one person that was the true mysterious teen. You were the girl with the trademark dark eyeliner and computer. It wasn’t known what you did on it but the hint was the large studio headphones that more than likely covered your ears.

Last year was when you caught the attention of Jughead more than any other year. He craved mystery but he craved you more.

 Love Your OCS Tag by @theartofqueenie

Rules: Take a picture of your OCS (doesn’t have to be a couple) and one group shot. If you have a couple take a picture of the two together and then their wedding pictures or future wedding pictures. If you don’t feel comfortable or something with wedding pics, just take a second picture of your sim(s) of anything you want. Maybe even include a background story if they don’t have a story of origin.


Well, this part of Fayce future is still a mystery to me tbh. I know Fern will wear a red dress and look like a classy girl from an old James Bond movie, but god only knows what Jayce will look like. I still don’t know what he will feel and how he will treat life when he finally overcomes his personal issues. I know it won’t be easy for him, but I’m still not sure what man will come out of him.

I was tagged by @simwithsparkles, thank you sweetie, and I tag a bunch of people I think may enjoy this: @blackthornsims, @inquisitive-simmer, @simmingswimmingly, @frenchpixel, @shysimblr, @simcataris, and @quiddity-jones.

You rode the bus long into the night and the following day as well, keeping your hood draped over half your face like a mask the entire time. Everyone else fell asleep at one point or another, but you were wide awake. You watched out the window as you passed towns and cities you’d never been to. 

The red, white and blue painted bus traveled from highways to dirt roads, and a little town by the ocean before you finally got off. The driver had called it a rest stop, just a place to pass through, but you decided to stay. Maybe it was all the docks and sailboats tied to them, or just how bright everything seemed by the water, but something told you to get off the bus and not get back on. 

As you watched the bus drive away, kicking up dirt with its tires as it did so, you realized you hadn’t eaten since the night before. Honestly, you didn’t even know where you were, much less where a good breakfast spot was, so you settled for the nearest convenience store.

Hey,so I usually dont stay updated with the production side of things, but your tag about how Kathleen kennedy has made the right move with the firing of the Han Solo film has me curious.Why was this the rite decision?

Well, tbh, I wasn’t a fan of them doing a Han Solo backstory movie in the first pace– the beauty of Han Solo is that he’s a renown badass smuggler across the galaxy– THAT’S IT. We don’t need to know how he became the man he is, it would just ruin the mystery of his background– shady (but lovely) character, shady background. If you spend one movie revealing too much it could ruin what made the character cool in the first place and just comes off as a marketing scheme. Harrison Ford is Han Solo. Same as how Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark (so much so that he was the only one who could play Young Tony in Civil War and they spent money on CGI for it). Adam Driver is Kylo Ren. They’re iconic. No one can beat their performances and their identities are so ingrained into pop culture that anyone else playing them seems unnatural.

Characters like Kylo Ren, whose background is rooted between two very important characters, and whose current situation is so different from his upbringing, is intriguing for a backstory because we want to know how he became Kylo Ren, and this backstory might actually affect his character arc throughout the sequel trilogy. It’s relevant to his character’s journey. Han Solo’s background has no effect on how he might change throughout the Original Trilogy- it’s not necessary, we know he’s a cool guy who gets the girl, nothing they say in the spinoff will change that. Anakin’s backstory was a bit more intriguing because 1) he’s Luke’s father, and 2) He was a good person once who became bad who then became good. His backstory is relevant to his redemption and how it affects his character and the galaxy as a whole. We want to know how the galaxy fucked up that bad, why he would betray his best friend Obi Wan, how it brought Obi Wan to Tattooine of all places, why Tattooine is relevant, etc.

Han is…Han. He’s always been against the Empire, he’s a fairly neutral character otherwise, he’s always been cool, he’s bffs with Chewbacca, and that’s it! He was raised to smuggle, so he smuggles (not snuggles!) and as a father, he’s about the same (still smuggling!). He doesn’t need more than that, he’s a cool guy that was clearly established in three movies.

Now, from what I understand, the two directors working on the film had a clash of creative differences with Lawrence Kasdan. Kasdan is the visionary behind the script for Empire Strikes Back (aka still the best Star Wars movie in my books). He’s known for a certain style and would rather people stick to the script, instead Phil Lord and Christopher Miller wanted a 21-Jump Street Style action comedy with lots of improv. I mean, I would rather trust Kasdan, who’s a veteran in the business, but the two directors seemed to just want to not listen.

Anyway, Kennedy saw the film, hated it, fired them and now we’re looking at Ron Howard possibly directing. I have to look more into Ron Howard and what he’s like. He might be awful too, I don’t know. But from what I’ve read, anything’s better than those two clowns.

Also, Kennedy’s not blind, she’s the President of Lucasfilm– word gets around quickly these days, and even Harrison Ford said he’s not looking forward to a Han Solo movie, and most people are not fans of the idea still.

Rogue One was also doubted quite a bit but since it had little to do with the original characters and was just a filler between Episode III and IV (or so we thought) the fandom wasn’t as “scared” or “apprehensive” of it ruining certain characters or story arcs so they entered the theatre with a fairly open mind (actually it’s a fucking amazing movie so I’m happy support for it started growing closer to the release).

But with this Han Solo movie, I got the feeling that many people were just not happy with it, things were so up in the air, there were bare bones reveals on characters and designs and concept art and just production stills in general. No one wanted it. No one asked for it. So if Kennedy wants to change this, she has to do a drastic change. Not only does firing two incompetents grab people’s attention, it gives some opportunity to change the movie (and in turn, possibly garner a resurgence of excitement of what they might do this time to make it better).

13. How did you become a MH fan? #Monster High Challange

I stumbled across a really pretty picture of a customized doll on Tumblr and scrolled down the whole “Monster High ooak” tag afterwards. I didn’t know anything about the MH universe at this point. But eventually, I watched the webisodes and movies and got to know the characters. I remember browsing the official homepage for the first time, stunned by the creativity and exceptionality of the character’s designs.
As a child I’ve always been more interested in the dark and mysterious than in princesses. Maybe consuming every fantasy novel I could get my hands on was an influence on my love for the extraordinary, as well. I’m also into goth and steampunk and refuse to give up my interests in “kids stuff”, such as toys, plushies and unicorns. In conclusion, Monster High and I were pretty much meant to be.

hance hcs?? or better yet: poly hunklancekeith hcs?? (what's their ship name ahhh)

sleepover saturday!

  • imagine hunk and lance having been best friends for a long time so they have that cute lil best friends to lovers trope
  • super affectionate boys. hunk loves giving hugs and forehead kisses, while lance loves laying on hair ruffles and cheek kisses
  • hunk loves to hold his smolish boyfriend! (who is actually tol but u wouldnt know with how high hunk lifts lance off the ground)
  • imagine in the beginning of their rship they are kinda easily embarrassed and shy with their affectionate endeavors though bc like they are so used to being Just Friends ™
  • further on into their relationship the same kinda jokes from before they got to together continue and they are pretty frickin silly, verging more into a sappy and gay territory
  • i like to think that hunk and lance cook together. sometimes they combine recipes and it either turns out totally messy or totally, surprisingly Delicious
  • the first time they say i love you is after a horrible fart joke and they proceed to kiss even tho they are kinda disgusted 
  • holding hands is their favorite activity
  • when lance is sad, hunk reassures him gently, then blows kisses into the side of his face
  • lance Constantly reminds hunk of how much he cares about him and adores him, likewise with hunk to lance

for polyship klunk!:

  • they all go star gazing together it’s a daily activity
  • when they have the time in between training, they definitely have movie nights. lance LOVES romcom night. keith LOVES horror night. hunk LOVES mystery/scifi night. 
  • hunk braids keith and lance’s hair, while keith and lance tag team on hunk’s hair!
  • they go on lil adventures together and whatnot on the planets they land on. if they have access to cameras, they take pictures together with hand chains (like ykno those ones where the person is leading the person taking the picture)
  • cuddle pile is a thing and is Real. hunk is so very warm and lance and keith leech onto him for warmth. lance is a Certified blanket hog while keith just wants all the pillows.
  • lance has a morning routine and gradually introduces hunk and keith to it. they have a fun time putting on the moisturizer/face wash to get that Lance Glo ™ and lance just laughs at their lil mistakes and errors but they all successfully have clean, shiny faces in the end
  • hunk and lance are both pretty affectionate, and eventually it rubs on keith. they are all sharing kisses and hugs at some point

hyphem  asked:

I saw your description said you're reading murder on the orient express- have you seen the trailer for the upcoming movie version?! It looks AMAZING (also I'm in love with your art and I hope you have a good day okay bye)

I am so excited about it! I saw so many people complaining in the tag when I looked that Poirot had a stupid mustache and how Johnny Depp ruins everything, I was just like, hell yeah I’m going to see an OTT aesthetic period mystery where Johnny Depp is the murder victim like Y E S. He isn’t going to be in it very long we can all relax from his over acting and be done with it….. That is unless darling Agatha blindsides me with a resurrection at the end, considering I haven’t finished it yet

I’ve seen a few drawings depicting Vivi forcing Arthur to watch scary movies and stuff. Personally I’ve always seen Vivi as nicer than that! in fact i’d like to think Arthur goes along with paranormal investigation shenanigans because that Vivi gives him strength. He knows how strong she is, and this gives him reassurance to go along. I find that more satisfying than Vivi just forcing him along.

someone in the tags on this said but what if Werewolf Arthur.

and seeing as werewolves are my weakness. And how Arthur is like Shaggy and Reluctant Werewolf is my fav scooby doo movie.

Also if you had fluffy ears and a tail, you really wouldnt have to hide them…peoples first thought isnt OMG THAT GUYS A WEREWOLF. trust me, as someone who has worn a realistic wolf tail in public….that doesnt happen. What does happen is tail pulling… MOSTLY BY ADULTS. fuck kids know better thent he parents i stg

Hey guys, so I have a word document which I would update with AD formspring answers in a bullet point list and I thought I’d share them on here for you all.
I don’t have the screenshots of the asks themselves to prove them true, but here you go either way. Long list ahead with more under the cut.

Ava

  • Most likely to be oblivious to the idea of being walked back home after date.
  • Most likely to win a race due to others trying to trip one another up and not realising until it was too late.
  • Most likely to snort when she laughs.
  • Likes getting her hair brushed the most.
  • Drawer appeared on her chest after Gil bandaged her up. 
  • Scars on arms are a result of Wrathia’s aim being off.
  • Ava’s home planet was a Titan-made planet for the re-education of relocated lifeforms of worlds purchased by the corporation. Ava was separated from her parents during the process of being relocated.
  • Chests in her mind contain memories, feeling, emotions and thoughts.
  • If Pedri had been her demon, she’d be dead by now.
  • Was blonde before her hair turned red.

DOO CENTRAL'S FUN FACT FRIDAYS!

Hey guys! I was glad to see you guys liked the first Fun Fact Friday post I made last week about Scooby’s siblings so this series of posts are here to stay!

I got to thinking about how Scooby came into the lives of Shaggy and the gang. Scooby’s origin story is not exactly consistent so there’s a lot of different ways Scooby’s been said to meet Mystery Incorporated.

As remembered by Velma as she goes through a photo album in Scooby-Doo Goes Hollywood, the gang found Scooby at Grillo’s Pet Store when he was just a puppy. Looking for a dog that was cute but also had character, Velma picked out Scooby. It is later said that they were present for Scooby’s first birthday. If you’d like to see pictures of the flashback, I made a post about it so click here!

A Pup Named Scooby-Doo simply conflicts with the story in Scooby-Doo Goes Hollywood because Scooby and Shaggy have been friends since they were children in this series. In A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, Scooby’s origins are revealed to be from Knittingham Puppy Farm. This farm was ran by Mrs. Knittingham and was where Scooby along with his brothers Skippy and Howdy Doo and sister Ruby Doo were born.

The story behind Shaggy and Scooby is even further unclear if you watched Shaggy & Scooby-Doo, Get a Clue! “Zoinks the Wonder Dog”, the 25th episode of the series, featured two characters never mentioned before in the series. Scooby and Shaggy’s friendship is strained when Shaggy’s long lost dog Zoinks comes back into the picture. Out of jealousy, Scooby gets in contact with his original owner Groovy Don. It’s in this series that Shaggy is said to not even be Scooby’s first owner!

The last origin story of Scooby is of course from the 2009 movie Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins. In this movie, the gang is in high school but none of them know each other. Scooby is in a pet adoption fair and is sadly not adopted by anybody. As the adoption fair packs up and heads to the next town, the cage Scooby is in falls out of the traveling truck and he accidentally winds up meeting Shaggy. The two become best friends and Shaggy nicknames him Scooby based on the name on his dog tag “Scoobert”.

That’s four stories as to how this lovable Great Dane came into the lives of Mystery Inc. so you can pick whichever one you like the best. Whether you’re the kind of person who will follow the original story or the most recent reboot story, there’s a variety of options.

Let me know if I missed any origin stories because I might have! Also message me if you guys have any ideas for future Fun Fact Fridays! Hope you enjoyed!

watched night at the museum 3 today..!! it was so sad and i was on the verge of tears tbh LOL so of course i had to do some self indulgent fanart. natm 3 does not exist to me tho, as far as im concerned the series ended at 2 and everyone still parties at home in the ROM with no sad things happening

how do i draw characters so that they actually look like their movie counterparts? it is a mystery

I dare you to write a story in which  the existence of souls is proven

Be creative! Some people hypothesize that the soul must exist because the body mysteriously loses weight after death yet before any decomposition takes place. The movie I Origin ‘proves’ reincarnation when iris scans begin showing that some irises reoccur despite the fact that all irises should be singularly unique. Use any theory you can find or make up one of your own, and play with it. How do people react to this proof? What are the social, religious, and scientific consequences of this discovery?

Think outside the box!

If you’re brave enough to post, don’t forget to tag I dare you to write and indicate whether or not concrit is welcome.

MCU Ladies Week
Day One: Favourite Character

Skye/Daisy Johnson/Quake

“Part alien. Welcome to the club. We call ourselves Inhumans.”

I think the answer to this one is fairly obvious; just take a look through my “AoS” and “MCU” tags on my Tumblr page and you’ll more than likely find Daisy there. I have always a fan of Skye (now called Daisy), even before the show started airing and that was because Colton Haynes (from Teen Wolf and Arrow) tweeted that his friend Chloe Bennet had just been cast in Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. I saw his tweet remembered how much I absolutely love the Marvel movies so I decided to give the show a try. I loved it from the very first episode and found myself drawn to the slightly mysterious, snarky and sarcastic yet extremely kind character of Skye. She really reminded me of Chloe Sullivan, my absolute favourite character of all time and thus Skye became my favourite character on the show.

What I love about Daisy the most is that the showrunners basically created an origins story of sorts for her and now Daisy Johnson is the first superpowered female in the MCU.

As a fellow WoC, I was glad to see a WoC character on a show that wasn’t treated as a “token” or made out to be a cliché because one of the showrunners on AoS is a WoC herself and because the AoS writers never wrote Skye/Daisy (and May who is also a WoC) as WoC. They wrote them as WOMEN first AND THEN cast WoC for the role. It’s still utterly baffling to me that other TV Shows, movies and showrunners haven’t done the same. I’m also baffled that AoS, the showrunners, Chloe Bennet and Skye/Daisy/Quake doesn’t get the attention they rightfully deserve. Daisy is the first WoC who has superpowers in the MCU and that is something that should be celebrated, not ignored.

At first (and sadly, still to this day) Skye got a bad rep from fans of the show calling her a “Mary Sue” because she was a good hacker without any formal training in computer science, she dared to be smart even though she was a high school dropout (compared with the other “smart” characters on the show what with their multiple PHDs) and there was this air of mystery surrounding her character. When I look at Skye/Daisy/Quake, I never see any of that. What I see is an outsider trying to find her place in the world and finding it as a SHIELD agent and later as an Inhuman. What I see is a woman who has been through childhood trauma, abuse, neglect, loneliness and pain and still, through all of this suffering, wants to make the world a better place. What I see is a hero.
