victorian-enjolras  asked:

yo please teach me about oscar wilde i really wanna get into him but i dont know where to start

oh boy have you come to the right place!!!! let me tell you about this man!!! 

this is probably my favourite picture of him because of his expression… i mean how is that not universally relatable…

Crash Course Biography:

  • Oscar marries his wife Constance in 1884, had 2 kids & decided he didn’t actually like her all that much & i’m like 70% sure they never had sex after kid #2
  • 1886 Robbie Ross (light of my life) turns up & is unabashedly homosexual - most people attribute Robbie as the one to bring Oscar to the Side of Gay.
  • Oscar struts about town, living a life that Henry Wotton would wholeheartedly advocate. He assumes the role of a ‘dandy’ - think flamboyance from every angle & add some frills. This was cool for him as it wasn’t seen as synonymous with being gay, just being a dramatist. 
  • 1891 is when Lord “Bosie” Douglas turns up & introduces Oscar to more gay stuff & more illegal stuff like weed & brothels & prostitution 
  • 1894 is when Bosie’s dad finds out about their relationship, flips out & takes Oscar to court for being illegally gay in 1895 :(
  • 1895 Oscar counters the charge by saying the case was unfounded (it totally wasn’t, he really did have a lot of sex) & whilst his epigrams / wit won him initial support, it all went downhill quite quickly. there’s another 2 trials for Oscar whilst all his friends pack up & get out of England (Robbie breaks into Oscar’s house upon request & packs up some of Oscar’s stuff, then legs it out to Paris) 
  • I think that the judge doesn’t even let Oscar have any last words in court i mean is that not the most heartbreaking, soul crushing thing you can do to this man 
  • Oscar does his sentence of 2 years hard labor in prison & gets hit in the head / ear - this injury & botched treatment is to be the cause of his death
  • He goes to Paris under exile & as far as I can gather lives with Robbie’s help but spent a lot of the time rejecting his help too. Also Oscar tries to live with Bosie again but both of their families are having exactly none of that behavior.
  • Oscar dies in Paris at the age of 46

Works:
Importance of Being Ernest is the 1st work of Oscar’s I read & I have never looked back. it’s short & sweet & hysterically funny, the humour is in no way dated & I love it
Picture of Dorian Gray please read this book as I have read it more than 7 times now & I need someone to rhapsodise about this with. It’s honestly a brilliant book with a totally cool plot & 3 fascinating characters (3 guesses who my fave is…it’s basil… it’s always basil)
The Ballad of Reading Gaol is the last work Oscar created before his death, & it’s about the harsh reality of prison & honestly I cry just because of the context
The Happy Prince & Other Tales so, my parents used to read these to me as a kid & like…is it really any wonder i love Oscar Wilde so much…I really honestly adore these stories!! 

Films:
Wilde (1997) Stephen Fry has been my standard image for Henry Wotton but he does make a damn good Oscar & also Michael Sheen as Robbie Ross is everything
Dorian Gray (2009) now…i have to admit i haven’t watched this but with all things considered i think i’m slightly justified in that due to the blatant disregard of Dorian’s descriptions in the book

Articles / other things to check out!!
queerhistoryproject has 2 great articles on Oscar here & here!! 
An article on Dorian Gray which is great 
This article explains a bit about where Oscar was coming from in the whole ‘aestheticism’ movement!!
And if you’re really keen (like me) there’s this one on Ernest 

I’ll cut my info dump off here - it seems like an ok place to stop! I’ll probably make more posts about Oscar-related things & any lit revision that I think might be useful to put up on this blog? I hope you enjoy the crash-course in Oscar Wilde & that this is all somewhat useful!! :]

PROMPTS

AND REQUESTS HERE

anonymous asked:  Cole sprouse where he takes you to visit the riverdale set and you guys are all lovey dovey and the cast makes fun them 💕

Cole and you have always been close. You were best friends before you started dating and now you were finally together, cliche! Nonetheless, you loved each other and sometimes you tend to be very lovey-dovey. Most of the time that made your friends and family make fun of you. So when Cole decided to take you with him on set it did not take you by surprise that  everyone never missed the opportunity to joke about your realationship. You would always distract him while trying to film or that’s what he would say every time he forgot his lines or just decided to do a stupid face.

You had only spent about two days on set with your loving boyfriend and his amazing cast members and all of them would keep on mocking you about everything, even after you left them and went back home. Today, for example, Kj was having an interviewer and he was asked about Cole and how he acts when he’s talking about you or when he’s around you. “It’s actually hillarious that he refuses he does this but he is costantly talking about her. He’s like, ‘ Awww look at her dude, she is so adorable in this photo’ or ‘I CAN’T EVEN BREATH SHE’S SO PRETTY’. He’s like a total fangirl when it comes to her. And honstly I cannot blame him.” He said and Cole couldn’t keep a straight face. “Dude, I don’t even act like that!” He tried to say when Lily jumped into the conversation pretending to be Cole sporting a fake manly voice. “’Oh my God, Lily, look at this photo of Y/N! She looks so beautiful!’ Said Cole showing me a photo with teary eyes when she sent him that said photo from a party she went to.” She said and Kj started laughing while bringing the image to his mind. “OK, it was one time-” “’Oh my look at her. She is so pretty when she is sleeping’” “ BUT THAT’S TRUE! She is so pretty when she sleeps it’s not my fault. Still you can’t prove anything.” Cole said and all three went on with the interview.

Only a few hours later Kj took to instagram to prove everything he said at that interview was true. “Soo, Cole says I can’t prove anything about him being so *cough* whipped *cough* So please enjoy his compilation of screenshots of his talking about her and some videos I took!” And right then it started. There were about 20 screeshots posted all proving that Cole couldn’t stop talking about you and about 5 videos. There was especially one from the time you got to visit him that you were sleeping on a chair while they were filming. “ I swear look at how adorable she looks!! Oh my god my feelings!” He said acting like a complete fangirl. There were more. Some old snapchats of his towards Kj or Lily saying how cute you look in a new outfit or when wearing his pieces of clothing. Honestly, he couldn’t deny it anymore. He is so whipped!

Stuck in the Middle (with You)/Awesome Crowley

[For a meta about Reservoir Dogs and Tarantino’s use of gay subtext, click here.]

I don’t want to be the person who ruins everyone’s fun, so I’m saving my one big criticism of this episode for last. This meta is completely positive, even saccharine, until the very last paragraph. Also, I’m borrowing one of my favourite AO3 tags as a title because, let’s face it, Crowley was the real hero of this episode and where the action was, and that’s perfectly okay and long overdue. Crowley’s been around for years now, and he’s gone through huge bouts of character development, and yet we still know next to nothing about him and he’s often treated like an afterthought, both by our heroes and by the writers. This episode finally (finally!) corrected that, because no matter how intriguing and plain beautiful everyone was, Crowley was magnificent - as I fully expected him to be.

After all, they’re good - but he’s Crowley.


Like anyone with eyes, I loved everything about this episode, and especially how it was filmed. I have to say - this is the first episode in a long time that actually had me in tenterhooks about a possible character death, because you never know, right? Theoretically, Crowley could die, and so could Cas. Theoretically. And also the music, did I mention the music? I think that scene of Cas crawling away from Ramiel and the shot of Ramiel stabbing him - that’s just become my favourite Supernatural scene ever, bar none. It was so powerful and dramatic and visually magnificent and that damn music - wow

I adored that symbolism, because Cas’ been a Christ figure for a while now, and seeing him like that, on his back, defeated and stabbed by a lance - you can’t get more Golgotha than that. Beautiful stuff.

I also loved that this episode was, in a way - off-centre. Sam and Dean were there, of course, but the story was not focused around them. The real protagonist was the supernatural world itself - Cas, Crowley, Ramiel; even Lucifer, to me, was more present than he’s been in a while, what with this vague threat of his child hanging over the world, and him taunting Crowley and flashing his red eyes at this most undemonic demon in the very last scene. The truth is, I love everything about Sam and Dean, and that includes the incredibly talented actors who play them, but I feel the show could benefit greatly from approaching their story from a different perspective every once in a while. I’d love to know more about their childhood, for instance, or about this world of monsters and hunters around them; and a completely Outsider POV episode is, at this point, something I’d probably sell half my soul for.

Anyway - lately, this show reads like very good fanfiction, and considering how engaged, loving and talented this fandom is, this is high praise. I particularly appreciate the fact they’re going back to important plot points and filling them in with completely new details - after all, we’ve been wondering for years what’s up with demonic eyes, or how Crowley became king in the first place (or, at least, I know I did). This new class of demons appearing out of nowhere - creatures powerful enough to wield an archangel’s weapon - that’s incredible stuff. I’m guessing we’ll see more about them, and I can’t freaking wait.

So, yes - Ramiel was spot-on. Jerry Trimble managed just the right mixture of underwhelmingly normal and terrifyingly amoral - so much so I’m sort of sad we didn’t get to see more of this character, even if everything about him, including his death, was handled just right - there was no room for anything more.

My one slight criticism there would be the fizzling nature of Cas’ abilities. For instance, didn’t we establish that Cas can smell lies? So why couldn’t he guess Mary was hiding something? And what about demons’ true forms? I always assumed Cas could see that (was it ever stated in canon? it must have been), and I was therefore almost disappointed that Cas couldn’t recognize Ramiel for what he was. Maybe it can be explained away by him slowly becoming closer and closer to a human being - I don’t know. In any case, I’m truly appreciating how obsessed everyone seems to be with him lately. After years of taking angels for granted, we’ve got two characters in short succession fangirling over angels (in a creepy, murderous and definitely non-con way, but still) - and, yeah, I know that basically everyone spent the entirety of Supernatural pointing out how different and unique Cas is, and I’m grateful for that, but it’s also nice to get a reminder that angels are awesome (in the other sense of the word) in and of themselves.

(I’m still loving Mr Ketch, by the way. Aaaaaw.)

Let’s now come to our unsung hero: Mr Crowley.

Crowley was magnificent in all this. And we’ve now learned he never seriously planned to become King of Hell - my headcanon, which I’m considering confirmed, is that Crowley simply wants control. He’s been tortured for a century or more as some demon tore his human soul out of him, and he’s never putting himself in that position again, which is very sensible of him, and also very Scarlett O’Hara.

I know that not everyone loved Felicity in this role, but I really think she did an amazing job. Her character was such an unusual protagonist, and she gracefully navigates between the war-hardened edges of a girl who lost everything, and a human being who is trying to relearn how to trust and believe in a cause. 

This expression was such a small moment in the film, but I just love it. She’s just heard Bodhi’s voice over the comm-link, and you see in 2 seconds her emotions flit between relief, joy, concern, and pain as she realizes the gravity of their situation at that she may never hear his voice again. Blink and you’ll miss it, but it tells so much about how much she’s grown, just in a few days time. 

Bravo Felicity. I absolutely adore you. 

It’s Not Over

You know, long stares, Jack admiring not only her beauty but the way she talks, laughs, the way she can go from funny and dumb conversations to intelligent ones.

Okay, so I loved this idea and I might have gone a little over board. Anyway, I hope you love it!


Billie fidgeted in her seat as her hair and makeup team put the last touches to her look for the first day of Dunkirk interviews. She was nervous, that was for sure, not because of the interviews, she had done tons of those for past films, but because she would be seeing him again. Sitting next to him, listening to him, admiring his laugh and his quick wit, everything that had made her fall for him in the first place. But it was different this time, they had given a relationship a try, how could they not? The chemistry between them was electric; everyone knew it from the first read through of the script, both were drawn to each other like magnets. However, once filming for Dunkirk had wrapped their busy schedules didn’t allow time for one another. His star was rising and Billie’s was only getting brighter after the announcement of her part in a huge film franchise. They both decided that it was best if they ended things before they both wound up resenting one another, but she knew their story wasn’t over yet and now after months on not seeing him or speaking with him she would be face to face again. A knock on your hotel door brought Billie out of her worried thoughts and she watched her assistant, Maggie go and see who it was. 

“Is Billie here, or has she already gone down?” she heard a sweet British voice ask Maggie very politely. 

“Tom!” she started to jump out of her seat but was pushed down by the guy finishing her hair. “Oh sorry.” she apologized, taking her seat again, and holding her hand out towards Tom. “I’m so glad to see you, I’ve missed you like crazy.” 

“And I’ve missed you, big sis.” Tom smiled, taking her hand and giving it a loving squeeze. 

“Sit down and tell me all about your life while I finish up.” She beamed at the young man who had played her younger brother in the film. “How’s your play going?” Tom sat down on the bed and told her all about everything that was going on in his life, she couldn’t stop smiling at him as he did, the bond the two at formed on set was unbreakable and she adored just being in his presence. As soon as her team had finished with her last touches, she stood up and finally gave Tom the hug she wanted to before. “Ready?” she smiled and they both left Billie’s hotel room alone and headed towards the elevators. 

“So have you seen him yet?” he asked, while they waited for the elevator to come. 

“Not yet.” Billie nervously bit her bottom lip, “It’ll be fine, we ended on good terms, so no hard feelings.” The elevator doors opened and they both stepped in. 

“I have to admit,” Tom started, “I was a bit shocked when I learned that you ended it. I mean I thought it was end game for you both.” Tom was the one on set who had encouraged her the most to set aside her rule about not dating costars and give a relationship with Jack a go. 

“Guess not.” she shrugged, stepping off the elevator and heading down to the rooms where interviews were being held. “What room are you in?” she looked at Tom, knowing that they were not starting the morning off together, but wanting to change the topic. 

“I’m with Jack. You?” Just the sound of his name made her stomach twirl with butterflies. 

“I’m with Mark and Berry, but we’ll be together after lunch.” She smiled, knowing that Tom wasn’t the only one joining her after lunch. 

“Well have fun.” He nodded before heading into his interview room. 


Jack’s head shot up as the door opened, he knew she wouldn’t be in the morning interviews with him, but something deep down still gave him hope that it was her. He sighed and his lips formed a small frown when he saw Tom enter the room. 

“Nice to see you too mate.” Tom laughed and he made his way over to the empty chair next to Jack. 

“I’m sorry,” Jack smiled, “I just thought…” 

“You thought I was Bill.” Tom smirked and gave his older friend a knowing look.

“S’bad?” Jack blushed, knowing that he shouldn’t be worried about her or still thinking about her the way that he was. Ever since they had agreed to not see each other anymore he was going crazy, everything reminded him of her, he couldn’t go two hours without her popping up in his head in one way or another. And now, he would have to see her again, he didn’t know how he was going to survive. 

“Nah,” Tom nudged him, “I actually just rode down with her.” 

“And?” Jack felt a twinge of jealousy in his stomach, even though he knew there was no need for it. 

“She looks quite fit.” Tom laughed, “All that training for her new films has really made her, well, hotter. If that was even possible.” 

“Great,” Jack moaned, “Just great.” That was the last thing that Jack needed to hear, she was already perfect in his mind, he didn’t know it was even possible for her to be even more perfect. Just then the first interviewer sat down in front of them and started what was a long morning of interviews. 


It was just after lunch and Billie making her way to the larger room where she would be joined by the whole cast as well as Chris for a large group interview. She stopped in front of the door, taking a big breath to ease her nerves before opening the door and coming face to face with Jack. She entered the busy room and took in all of the hustle and bustle around, quickly scanning it for Jack. She didn’t notice him right away and decided to make her way over to the group of chairs where Mark and Chris were already sitting. She was greeted with warm smiles from both men along with a huge hug from Chris. 

“So nice to see you again.” Chris smiled as he released her from his arms and retook his seat, she took the seat next to him in the front row. Billie spent a few minuets catching up with Chris and Mark, telling them all about her new film and how she were nervous she’d be letting fans of the franchise down. She was mid story when a familiar laugh made her freeze and lose track of what she were saying. It was as if the world shifted, a feeling she often felt when in the same room as him. 

“I’m sorry, what was I saying?” She apologized to Chris. 

“It’s okay,” he assured her, “It looks like we’re about to start anyway.” He nodded to what was behind her, she slowly turned around and was greeted by the group of boys she had grown to love during the course of filming. 

“B!” Harry said as he scooped her up off her feet and gave her a twirl around, “Oh how I’ve missed you.” 

“Oh Styles,” she giggled as he sat her back down. “I’ve missed you too.” Behind Harry was Fionn, who she soon greeted and hugged as well. She had turned back around to take her seat when she heard a cough from behind her. She looked back and was greeted by a pair of blue eyes she only knew too well. “Jack.” Billie said in a sort of whisper, her mouth becoming dry. She was somewhat taken a back by his appearance, he was sporting a full beard, something she had never seen before. She didn’t hate it; in fact it gave him a manlier look. She also noticed the muscles he had gained while filming Fighting With My Family, making his shoulders a bit broader and his physique more formed. 

“It’s nice to see ye Bill.” He smiled, his dimples still noticeable from under his beard. 

“You too.” She smiled, never breaking eye contact from him. And just like every time the two were together, they couldn’t take your eyes off each other, everything else in the room melting away, as if they were the only two people on earth. She didn’t know how long they had been standing there before the sound of Barry’s voice broke them out of their trance. 

“We get that ya both luv each other, but can ya save the stares for later?” He laughed causing her and Jack’s faces to blush. She looked around and saw the other boys and snickering. 

“Sorry.” She mumbled, taking her seat next to Chris and watching Jack take the seat behind her out of the corner of her eye. 

The interviewer wasn’t one question into the interview before all of Jack’s attention was on Billie. He swore he’d never met a girl quite like her before. She made his heart race and his head cloudy. When he was with her he couldn’t seem to think straight. But he knew, he wouldn’t trade this feeling for anything in the world. He peered at her out of the corner of his eye, watching the careful way in which she tucked her hair behind her ear, how she threw her head back when she laughed and how her eyebrows scrunched together when she was focusing on the interviewer asking her a question. 

“It’s not nice ta stare.” Barry whispered in Jacks ear causing him to sit up straighter and look at his friend. 

“And the film has a touch of romance.” The interviewer noted, “I hear that wasn’t always indented for the film, is that true?” She asked. Everyone besides Chris, Jack and Billie started to laugh; they all knew what she was talking about. Jack’s eyes looked at Billie and he noticed she was looking down towards her lap and the slight flush of pink appearing in her cheeks. 

“That’s true.” Chris nodded, “I didn’t write it in at first, but after we all had the first read through, there was no way to deny that there was something special between Billie and Jack. So, Emma and I spoke and thought it made sense, it worked out well since both of their characters end up on the boat together.” Chris smiled and looked at Billie. 

“I think it’s nice to have it in there.” Fionn jumped in. “Gives the film some hope in the end.” He looked towards her as well and gave her a reassuring nod. 

“And that ‘something special’ was only on screen?” The interviewer asked.

“Yes,” Billie began, “I mean, I think anyone would have something special when acting along side Jack, he’s a wonderful scene partner that really listens and gives you his all. He makes it very easy to fall in love with him, and that was what Elizabeth, my character did.” Jack watched as she turned around and gave him a small smile. 

“And it wasn’t like it was hard to fall in love with Bill either.” Jack smiled, using her nick name and still looking down at her, “I mean there are worse people to be stuck on a boat with. Like Barry or Tom here.” They both laughed, as that was a joke they had shared between themselves all while filming. 

“Will you two just get a room already?” Tom joked, causing the others to start laughing and breaking Billie and Jack’s small moment. “Oh shut it.” Jack elbowed Tom in the side “Yer just jealous.” Billie couldn’t help but giggle, the moment taking her back to a year earlier when they were all filming on the small boat together. 

The interview wrapped and they were all free for the rest of the night. Billie handed her mic pack back to the sound guy and made her way to the door, excited for the hotel robe, wine and room service that was waiting back in her room. 

“Oy, Bill,” Fionn shouted behind her right before she reached the door, “What are you doing tonight?” 

“I have a date with a nice Rosé.” 

“Boring.” Fionn smiled and she stuck her tongue out at him. “Come to my room tonight and spend some time with me and the lads, like old times.” 

“That sounds nice.” she sighed. 

“Great, we’ll see you at eight.” And with that he was running back over to where the rest of the boys were, she could see them all huddle as if they were up to something. 

“They’re trying te get us back together.” Jack whispered in her ear causing her to turn around quickly and lose her balance. And as if nothing happened Jack reached out and placed his hands around her hips to steady her. Billie glared up at him, taking in every inch of his face, finally focusing on his eyes. She could picture them perfectly, even if he was nowhere in sight. The bright blue pigments of Jacks’ eyes were forever etched into her brain. Those almond shaped eyes that expressed his every thought and feeling. Those deep pools of energy and excitement, always so full of life and laughter. Since the very first moment she’d met him, his sea blue eyes had captivated her, and instantly stolen her heart. Gazing back at her, it was plain to see the love he held for her, just by the simple way his eyes crinkled with a smile. 

“What?” he asked, voice dripping with curiosity for the way she looked at him.

“Nothing,” she murmured, shaking her head softly, “just you’re still holding me, is all.” 

“Can’t tell me ye minded.” He laughed as he removed his hands, causing her to miss them the moment he did. 

“Don’t do that.” she shook her head and took a step back, knowing that the closeness was too much for her. 

“Do what?” He smirked, knowing the effect he had on her and taking a step closer. 

“This,” she pointed her finger up and down at him, “this classic Jack stuff, we agreed to be just friends remember.” 

“Right,” his tongue slipped out of his mouth and ran across his bottom lip. “Well, I guess I’ll see ye around, friend.” He smiled and backed away towards the other boys. Billie stood there, trying to catch her breath and ignore the burning fire Jack had caused inside of her. 

And before anyone else could stop her, she ran to the elevator ready to take a long cold shower.


It was ten past eight and Billie stood outside Fionn’s door listening to the familiar laughter from within, she took a deep breath, gasped her bottle of wine a little tighter and knocked on the door. Before she could count to ten the door swung open and a bright smiling Aneurin was standing in front of her with arms spread wide open. 

“If it isn’t our little Jedi herself” he joked before wrapping his arms around her. Aneurin had always been a huge Star Wars fan and was quite jealous when he learned Billie had been cast in the franchise. 

“Shut up!” She laughed, “We missed you today.” 

“Well, I’m here now.” He pulled her in and closed the door behind them, “Come on, I’ll pour you a glass and we can catch up.” He took her bottle of wine and she followed him into where everyone was. She smiled at Tom and Harry who were deep in a debate about something she couldn’t hear. She scanned the room looking for Jack and found him over by the window with Fionn watching Barry retell some animated story of his. Their eyes locked and Jack smiled giving her a small wink, causing her to blush and look away quickly. “Here you go.” Aneurin handed her a glass of wine and she happily took it, taking a huge sip before even thinking twice. “I’m going to make a drink and I’ll meet you over on the sofa, I want to hear all about your lightsaber training.” He nudged her towards the sofa. 

Billie hadn’t been sitting for a second before Jack came and plopped down beside her on the sofa, nudging her playfully as she made herself comfortable. It was like old times and for a moment she thought about their time together last summer. His hand found her knee, and he began lightly tracing patterns into the worn fabric of her jeans. Glancing over at him, she saw the way he looked at her, eyes unwavering. His touch was soothing, like a familiar dream, or a memory from your childhood. Having him close never failed to give Billie a sense of security. It was almost as if every moment held some unseen promise. A promise for the future, a promise for unconditional love. Casually, she patted his chest, fingers drawing aimless circles into the fabric of his shirt. Smirking at one another, they both simultaneously hoisted their feet onto the coffee table in front of them. Side-by-side, they knocked their feet together playfully with each other, playing a subtle game of footsie. 

“And you tell us it’s over between you two.” Aneurin let out a chuckle from behind them as he watched them goof around, walking over to sit down on the chair across from them. Billie blushed, getting up quickly and excusing herrself, desperately needing some space to help clear her muddled mind. She went out into the hallway, pressing her back against the wall and sliding down onto the floor. A moment later, she heard the door reopen and close, Jack following her out the door. Sitting down beside her on the hallway floor, he pushed the hair from her face, carefully tucking the silky strands behind her ear. 

“I’m sorry,” he murmured. His fingers linger on her skin a moment longer than necessary, and she could see in his clear blue eyes, all the words he never got to say. Shaking her head, she pulled away. 

“Jack, I cant. I can’t do this.” she whisper, training her eyes on the ground. And that’s when it happened. A slight tilt of her head, and suddenly, it was like Jack was seeing her for the first time. All the feelings he’d been harboring for her, now rising to the surface of his heart, as he looked sideways at her. She sat with her legs tucked delicately beneath her, oblivious to the fact that he was staring at her. But he couldn’t help it, Billie drove him crazy; her smile, her attitude, the little way her nose scrunches up when she laughed. His head was swirling with all the words he wanted to say, until finally he blurts them all out.

“I love ye. I’ve loved ye for so long,” he murmured. “I feel ye burning under my skin, ye consume my thoughts. I lose sleep thinking about the future. About ya. All I can see is ya. And I know ye say it’s over, but ye and I both know that it’s not over, it never was. It’s only just beginning.” Billie looked at him in awe, tears filling in her eyes, captivated by the words she’d only ever dreamed of hearing him say. Without a moment of hesitation, she leaned over, and crashed a smiling kiss to his lips. Ready to start their forever.

Two. Months. Left. ARC contest winners + newest teaser!

I can’t believe that in just two months, this book is going to be out. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am for you to read it, and there’s so much STUFF happening behind the scenes that I can’t wait to tell you about (Events! Pre-order gorgeousness! And more……..)

But real talk: the contest winners. You’ve been waiting. I’ve been hunkered down and writing, and there were so many entries in all of the categories that I wanted to appreciate and read and watch myself and also share with others to help choose where the little ARCs will go that it took me a bit longer than I’d hoped. So there’s something extra special I’ll be posting on 9/8 that I hope everyone will enjoy, that’s also a hint of things to come. 

And now, here we go:

First place winner of the signed ARC for ART: 

It was a tie. There were so! many! entries in this category, and I loved them all, but the sweetness, the effort and the detail involved in everything about TastyYouth’s entry blew me away.

Since this first category was just flooded with beautiful things, I knew I’d have to get another ARC. And I did. And it’s going to…Sam/Graywarene, for the stunning Tarot cards. You were so on point in the summary of your submission about the characters, and the pieces were made with such consideration–I love everything about them.

Second place: Ayaninja_z! This was one of the first entries I saw, and it was so adorable and dead on I laughed out loud.

Third place, Artscapade. All of the entries were incredible, but this painting stood out for being so haunting and atmospheric and dark. It looks the way (I hope) The Becoming of Noah Shaw feels.

Next, FILM! 

This one had many, many entries too, and they were all so wonderful it felt impossible to choose, but it had to be done so we did it! First place for the film category goes to: 

Jenna Clare. 

Something you probably didn’t know about me-I love to sing. But I can’t write songs/music for shit, so I’m extra in awe of people who can, and do, so beautifully. Not to mention the fact that the art direction and aesthetic was so creative and lovely. 

Second place goes to CrashAgainstMySkin!

YES to those fancasts. YES to that Halsey song. So much time and talent went into this, it was just yes all around. 

Third place in the video category went to another song, this one by the lovely JovvainCanada! But I’m not sure if the link submitted was supposed to be public, so I’m going to leave it up to her about whether she wants to share it. I loved it. It’s splendid. 

Next up, we have the writing category! This one had the second most submissions, and they were all so wonderful I couldn’t have chosen winners if I hadn’t had help! In first place, this poem, which is beautiful and moving and personal, so I’m going to let the writer keep herself anonymous if she chooses:

Only three years ago I had
No idea that only words on a page could make me sad,
Happy, desperate, and so much more at the same time.
Ever since I read the first words, I knew that everytime
I would think about Mara’s story, it would
Still blow my mind like no other story could.
Even after days and months and years have passed,
I can’t let this be just a thing of the past.
And even if I cried because of these books for an entire day,
”Thank you” is the only thing I have to say.
Because when I was only four years old,
And this is a story that I’m still afraid to unfold,
My dearest uncle took my small hand
And wrapped it around his… And on command,
I started moving it back and forth, having
No idea what I was doing.
Now I’m sure you can imagine how my face went white
When I found out what Jude did to Mara that one night.
I was shocked and I hated him with all my heart,
And I thought that if I kept reading, I’d fall apart.
But still, I kept going,
Watching as Mara was still growing,
Still living, still going through things,
Still flying through life as if she had wings.
She slowly became my biggest inspiration and the proof
That I, just like her, can be bulletproof.
Mara’s story is the one that made me realise
That anyone, no matter what they’ve been through, can touch the skies.
And for years and years I’ve dealt
With suicidal thoughts, but when I read about what Noah felt
When he thought that he was gonna die,
All I could do was cry.
Because, for the first time since I can remember,
I knew that someone’s words would be with me forever.
When I read about how he spent his whole life wanting death
But then he wanted to hold his last breath
Just to spend a few more seconds with the girl he loved,
I finally wholeheartedly believed
That maybe, just maybe, there’s something good out there,
Waiting for me. I just have to dare
To live.And I want to thank Michelle from the bottom of my heart
For teaching me lessons like these, that, trust me, are hard
To learn. I wan to thank you for being such a talented writer,
For teaching me how to be a fighter,
For teaching me what true love looks like,
For teaching me that people who are alike
And meant to be together
Will find each other, sooner or later.
I don’t know if these words will touch you as deeply
As yours touched me, but surely,
You will read them and you will know
That there’s one girl out there who just wants to say ”Hello,
You can call yourself
The angel from my bookshelf,
Because when all I wanted to do was quit,
I put my life in your hands and you saved it.”

Second place goes to BetweenthePage! As I said, I love songs and am always so impressed by people who write them well! 

And now, for the random category!

First place: coreypetereed, for this tattoo. 

“The Evolution of Mara Dyer tattoo on the back of my upper arm to honor Noah Shaw. One of my favorite quotes from the trilogy, “You will love him to ruins.” It’s part of my book sleeve :)”

This is commitment. It’s amazing. 

Speaking of commitment–a reader made a dress and SHOES out of the books (!), but I’m having a hard time finding that post! Dear reader, if that was you, please come forward and claim your second place prize!

And third prize goes to: Bookrendezvous!

This was technically submitted under the art category, but it feels like such a unique object that I thought it worked as well as things like dresses and tattoos for this category, too. The construction is just incredible.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who participated in this contest. I did not even remotely expect the wave of submissions and was a bit overwhelmed by it all, to be honest, and HAD to make sure I got another ARC because there was just no way four were enough. I wish I could get even more, but on the upside, no matter what, it’s just TWO MORE MONTHS until you get to read the book!

In the meantime, if you saw your entry listed here, here’s what you do to claim your prize: Get in touch via the Ask button, tell me which entry was yours, and let me know your address so it can be mailed to you ASAP! There’s a major hurricane affecting a lot of us, right now, so try to be a bit patient, but my brother in New York is going to be helping to make sure prizes are mailed out to the rightful winners ASAP! 

That’s him, on the right. Meet Josep–I mean, Jeremy. You should follow him on Instagram & Twitter @ JeremyHodkin, but only if you’re interested in MADNESS teasers and exclusive sneak peaks. Only then. 

Once again, thank you guys SO much for entering. I couldn’t do what I do without you.I can’t tell you how inspired I am by your art every single day.

All the Reasons to Watch Middlemarch: The Series

This series is one of the best LIWs I’ve ever seen. It has everything we all love about literary-inspired webseries, and then some. It also doesn’t have nearly enough subscribers yet, so I’m going to list some of these things in the hope that more people will go and watch this wonderful series.

1) High production values (for a webseries). Funding from Yale makes that sort of thing possible, and this show is very pleasing to look at.

2) Everyone has problems. All the characters are struggling with things, none of them are willing to admit their issues, and their struggles are all realistic and relatable. These are normal people with normal problems, and yet it somehow all feels so important.

3) A baking video gone wrong. Need I say more?

4) An angsty m/m ship whose obstacles to getting together have nothing whatsoever to do with either of them being closeted (huzzah!)

5) An adorable couple in which one person is female and the other is nonbinary. Did I mention they’re adorable?

6) Internship drama.

7) Conversations about art and the meaning of life and whether we should bother finding the meaning of life.

8) The most beautiful f/f ship I have ever laid my eyes on. Seriously, this ship is beautiful in every sense of the word.

9) They have actual merch for their fictional college and pizza place. How cool is that?

10) Interesting format (everything is being uploaded several months after it was filmed, with commentary from the characters looking back on things).

11) The catchphrase “Ladies, gentlemen, and otherwise,” which I freely admit to having stolen as the opening to my valedictorian address. Thanks for that :)

12) There’s just a lot of gay going on, and everyone is out, which is a nice change, though I still do think it’s important to show fictional characters coming out when that’s part of the story – it just doesn’t need to be part of every queer character’s arc.

13) Reuben Hudson’s singing in that one episode.

14) All the other music, which I will not list because I will forget people, but it’s all really good and really well-chosen. Sadly none of the characters sing, but the soundtrack makes up for it.

15) A relatable and highly flawed protagonist who we still root for even though she does all the wrong things. That is not easy to find.

There are more, but the bottom line is that MMTS is very well written, very well made, very well acted, and very, very gay. Go watch it if you enjoy any of these things (and I know all of you do).

Recently I’ve been reblogging peoples art and writing in the tags to check them out… I thought I’d make a list of artists that I recommend because let’s spread the love!

@snowunderthestars: Their art looks so soft… not sure why but ah well.

@anotherwellkeptsecret: If you like johnlock this artist is for you. Her art is amazing and cartoony and… *screams*.

@elizabethseagrave @lizziebylife: She’s my best friend and I’ve seen her art grow over the years (She once combined the war in Afghanistan and War horse for her final Art GCSE project)

@kuravix: One of my college friends. She draws One Piece stuff so if you like that go there! (And ZoSan)

I think that’s everyone I follow… If it’s not I’m sorry… oh and if you want me to change your pronouns let me know and I will do so… YAY Go see these peoples art and follow them… Artists (and Writers) need love!

anonymous asked:

Boyfriend does my makeup youtuber au with Jun please

Sorry for the delay! This was such a cute request, hope you like how I wrote it! ^^


“You want me to do what?” your boyfriend asked in disbelief, lips stretched into a wide yet confused smile and arms crossed by his chest as he stood next to the chair you were sitting on. You grinned.

“Do my makeup! It’s for Youtube,” you said cheerfully, pointing at the laptop you had open, your Youtube channel showing Jun all of your videos and your grand amount of subscribers. He inspected the screen for a while before turning back to you, one eyebrow quirked.

“Is this one of those challenges, like that cinnamon one?” he asked, still curious and unsure, and you thought for a while before shrugging.

“Kinda, but not at all,” you laughed, and he snickered, too. At last, he gave you a meaningful nod.

“Alright.”

You were just about to start setting everything up, when Jun cleared his throat. “So… what do I do? It’ll be filmed and all, so…”

“I don’t know, do my makeup and… just be yourself,” you answered, heart warm because of how adorable he looked, all unsure and kind of nervous despite loving being on camera. His face lit up at your words and he leaned down to kiss you gently.

“Like this?” he asked a bit cockily, grinning when your eyes fluttered open with your lips still puckered, ready for the kiss to continue.

Swallowing, you shook your head. “M-maybe a bit less kissing on-cam.”

Once you had gotten your camera and make-up collection ready, you and Jun sat down on the edge of your bed and started filming. He was stiff at first, practically pouting at the camera while waving his hand with a low “Hi everyone, I’m Jun, Y/N’s wonderful boyfriend.”

You explained what the challenge was about, both to Jun and everyone who would be watching your video later, and he nodded in understanding when he finally got the whole picture, chuckling to himself. “So you trust your face with me?”

Turning to look at him, you giggled and held his hand for a moment. “Of course.”

He stood up and looked down at your makeup, all spread on your desk and ready for Jun to use. Taking a small stick, he turned to you with a small frown. “What’s this?”

“A highlighter,” you said, slightly amused, and laughed when Jun just shook his head and muttered that you probably wouldn’t be needing it. When he spent another few moments just staring at everything in his disposal, you chuckled. “Do you have any idea what I wear daily?”

Jun’s eyes widened for a fraction of a second, and even though he gave you (and the camera) a very confident “Of course I do,” you knew he had little to no clue.

Keeping his confidence, though, Jun took a bottle of foundation that seemed like it had been used a lot and reached for a brush he could recall seeing you apply it with, all the while taking glances at you to make sure he was on the right track.

“He has no idea,” you mouthed to the camera in amusement, laughing when Jun squinted his eyes at you as he sat down.

“I’d like to remind you that I’m the one with your precious makeup,” he joked while taking off the cap of your foundation, and froze for a moment as he tried to think of how to proceed. You giggled quietly, but it soon turned into a bubbly laughr when Jun began taking the foundation over your face, pumping thin streaks of it here and there.

“Alright,” you said with a nod when he took the bottle away, and without saying anything, Jun took a gentle hold of your jaw and took the brush to your forehead.

“I have no idea how this will end,” he said with a grin, amusedly watching the foundation spread around your face, changing your skin tone ever-so-slightly. You watched his lips part when he focused hard enough, trying to make sure everything was nice and smooth, and you giggled at both that and how the brush tickled your skin a little.

After the foundation was done and Jun had added the smallest bit of shading under your cheekbones and seemed satisfied, he picked up a powder and started patting it around your face.

“You seem like you know how this goes,” you stated in amusement while Jun made sure the powder was everywhere. He grinned as he put it away.

“I see you do this almost every morning, so,” he chuckled and turned to look at the remaining makeup. “Any wishes?”

You appeared thoughtful for a while before grinning playfully. “Just do whatever you feel would look good on me. Go wild.”

All you got was a nod before Jun started thinking, picking out a bit of this and that, comparing shades and occasionally taking a look at your face; whenever he did that, you could see the corners of his mouth tugging upwards.

“Okay, this is what I’ll use,” Jun huffed and carried some makeup from the desk to the bed, showing them to the camera one by one. “Alright, so there’s some mascara, eye shadow, a really nice lipstick and… this thing that Y/N uses for her eyebrows.”

“An eyebrow pen,” you said with a giggle, at which Jun shook his head.

“But you have eyebrows even without…” he mumbled to himself while taking the cap off the eyebrow pen and moving his eyes between it and your eyebrows, thinking about how to proceed. You looked at him expectantly and finally closed your eyes when Jun brought the pen to your left eyebrow, taking it lightly over it one time after another, drawing out the lines and filling in, trying to remember how he had seen you do it on occasion. “It’s basically the same, but… more defined?”

You nodded. “Exactly.”

From there on he moved on to eyeshadow - at first he got too much on your eyelids so he got the excess off with his thumbs with such gentleness that your heart felt warm and you smiled so widely that you could already tell it would look stupid on camera, at least in your own eyes.

“I’m sorry,” Jun laughed when the eyeshadow was finally done; there wasn’t too little or too much of it anymore, and it was your most used shade, too. You shook your head as a sign that it was nothing.

You looked at the makeup next to you and giggled when Jun took the mascara into his hand. “Oh, this will be interesting.”

Jun quirked one of his eyebrows while rolling the brush part open. “How so?”

“That needs a lot of focus,” you said, eyes big and meaningful, but Jun just laughed and shook his head.

“Nah, it’s easy.”

As it turned out, it was a lot tougher than he had initially thought. You kept getting the mascara on your cheek and eyelid, and he tended to also go too close to your eye which had you blinking, and while you laughed heartily, Jun tried to hold back his own snorts as he tried to get it off with his thumbs and cotton swabs, all of his teeth showing with the grin he was unable to erase from his face.

“I’m trying, okay,” he laughed, and you burst out in an even louder laughter.

“Didn’t you say that this would be easy? Do I even look presentable anymore?” you asked amusedly and squinted your eyes when Jun just gave you a hasty nod, as if avoiding the topic,  and put the mascara away.

Even applying lipstick proved out to be a bit of a challenge for Jun, as he seemed to go outside of your lips continuously, but you were thankful he didn’t get any on your teeth, at least.

“Okay, do the smacking thing with your lips,” Jun said after putting the lipstick away, and smiled to himself when you did as asked. “And now if I just…”

He leaned closer and rubbed the areas above your upper lip and below your lower lip with his thumbs, getting away the last bits of lipstick he had not been able to remove earlier. You looked at his focused face and his plump upper lip carefully, your heart continuing its steady beating but feeling stronger as it did so, warming you up and making you smile.

Jun looked at you proudly after he had handed you a mirror and you were looking at yourself through it, your expression growing more and more impressed when you inspected different parts of your face.

“It’s surprisingly good, actually,” you said in awe, turning your head from side to side and melting into a smile. “I was expecting it to look awful, but…”

“Impressive, right?” Jun asked with a smug grin and turned to the camera while pointing at you a little. “Can you guys believe I’m dating someone as good-looking as Y/N?”

You nudged him while laughing, the mirror now lying behind you on the bed. “It looks really natural. Thank you.”

At that, Jun gave you a fond smile. “You look gorgeous without any, too, so…”

You were just about to hug him when he continued.

“…and someone as handsome as me deserves someone as hot as you by their side.”

Squinting, you let your hands fall down again, and Jun laughed loudly.

“I’m kidding! I love you for a million reasons and most of those are because of the inner you.”

With your cheeks heating up a little, you pursed your lips. “…I might edit this out.”

In the end, you didn’t, though, and instead had a small compilation of Jun’s best moments at the end of your video. There were surprisingly many of them, most of them being just Jun making weird faces when he focused hard enough or when he was confused with the makeup - or when he was getting too cheesy to be true with you.

Your favorites were the clips where he stole quick glances at you, and similarly Jun loved the parts where you were looking at him with a smile visible in your eyes, too.

Another “Dark” Scene

I understand the complaints about the darkness of the Richonne love scene. I know that I was about to raise Cain but then I remembered another “dark” love scene from 30 years ago.

I was 11 when “Top Gun” came out. I ADORED this movie. It is just everything. I’m going to be honest. It’s a bit of a war propaganda film mixed with Americana and spread over Wonder Bread. This film was way before Tom Cruise went nuts and bounced all over Oprah’s sofa.

Kelly McGillis played his love interest. Smack in the middle of this film is one of the best love scenes. But imagine me sitting there having to watch it in the theaters along with my mother! I never got the sex talk. My mother was born during the 40s so you know how that went. When she gave me the sex talk it was: “You know what your period is, right?” That was it! I could see how painfully uncomfortable it was for her. Ugh! I wanted the ground to swallow me up!

Anyway I got off topic.

I couldn’t help but to think of this scene when the Richonne snippets came out. Yes, we want to see everything. I get it. But look at how beautiful the scene with Cruise and McGillis is! I wonder if this was the inspiration for 7.12. I’m thinking that Gimple is Gen X like me so I wouldn’t be surprised.

There’s a lot of tongue action here. You folks in Richonneville called our attention to the tongue action in Rick and Michonne’s scene. Thank you and God Bless.

The power ballad “Take My Breath Away” by 80′s group Berlin is blasting in the background. I think that it may have won an Academy Award for “Best Song” or something. Richonne is one big 80s power ballad to me. I play them when I write. This scene ruined me. I thought that’s how sex would always be. My expectations were HIGH. My first time came pretty close actually. After that it went a bit downhill.

I guess we get enough realism in our lives.

But it looks like a new generation is going to develop high expectations as well.

Keep Me Warm Part 4

The case had ended pretty quickly after the ordeal of being snowed in at an abandoned barn. Before you knew it you were back on the jet heading for home. You took one of the two opposing seats with a table so that you could spread your book, iPhone, iPad and chocolate out nicely. Sighing lightly you realised you were content with yourself, the team had solved the case fairly quickly, you had actually slept for a good few hours last, and most importantly you and Spencer were finally on good terms.

“Is this seat taken?” A soft voice asked.

When you looked up and realised it was the quirky doctor you had just been thinking about, your heart jumped in your rib cage.

“No no please, go for it!” You smiled, perhaps a little too eagerly.

“Thank you. You’ve finished Alice in Wonderland I see.” He nodded towards the new book on the table.

“Yeah! I started this one last night, it’s really good so far, I was thinking I should expand my taste in books.”

“Memoirs of a Geisha is a fantastic book, you should read the Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern I think you’d really enjoy it.” He said enthusiastically.

“Thanks! Next time I need a recommendation I’ll come straight to you.”

“I’d be happy to help.” He blushed.

The way the pink tint blossomed on his cheeks made your head feel slightly dizzy. How was it possible for someone to be so handsome and so kind and intelligent and funny and nerdy and goofy and just perfect? It really wasn’t fair, to be so close to temptation and have it just out of reach.

“You look tired, are you sleeping okay?”

One part of you felt complimented that he cared, the other part of you wanted to sink into the ground because that meant you probably looked like shit.

He must of noticed that you became self conscious because he was quick to follow up with;

“Not that you look bad, you look pretty, you know b-because you are, I just m-meant you seem sleepy and not in a bad way, sorry ignore me.” He stammered.

He was blushing even harder now, which was adorable. All you could do was giggle.

For the remaining few hours of the flight the two of you talked about almost everything from favourite films, books, music, Tv shows, colours and food. You discovered that the two of you were almost scarily similar, except for the odd debate on favourite characters and plot lines. You couldn’t remember ever having a conversation so fun and interesting before. All too soon the captain announced that you’d landed safely. As you walked off the plane your wish for the night never to end came true as Spencer took a deep breath and asked;

“Are you hungry? Because I am starving! Want to go get something…together?”

You were astounded, how could someone get so lucky?

“Yeah! Although I am exhausted, and I probably look like a mess…would you rather just get take out instead?”

“Take out sounds perfect.” He sighed with relief. “Chinese?”

“Oh god yes.”

The thought of chow mein was making you feel hungrier by the minute.

As he drive the two of you back to your apartment, you were busy ringing your favourite Chinese restaurant to order. You picked it up on the way, and for the last ten minutes of the car journey the smell of steaming food made your stomach gurgle hungrily.

You were glad that you’d decided to clean up your flat before you left for the case, because when you got in it wasn’t in its usual messy state.

“I uh don’t have a proper table and chairs yet so I’m afraid the sofa will have to do, sorry I just haven’t had time to go furniture shopping or anything yet and-”

“Don’t worry about it!” He interjected. “Your sofa looks incredibly comfy.”

You smiled appreciatively.

The two of you sat legs crossed opposite each other as you ate, continuing the conversation from the plane. It had developed slightly from favourite things to things you hated. He laughed when you told him your hate for bad parking and gross mouldy food, and you in turn when he went on a rant about people who didn’t like Halloween. It was already late into the night and you couldn’t fight off the yawns any longer.

“Yeah I’m super tired also, I’ll get out of your hair now.” He said getting up, empty plate in hand.

“Wait what do you mean? You can’t drive home now it’s too late, you’ll be falling asleep at your desk tomorrow and it’ll be all my fault!” Now you felt bad.

“It’s okay honestly, my apartment is not that far-”

“No I won’t have it, please I can sleep here and you can have my bed, it’s payback for you paying for the food.” It was the only way you wouldn’t feel guilty all night.

“Okay okay I’ll stay, but I’m on the couch and you can sleep in your own bed. Deal?”

“Deal.” He seemed pretty adamant.

He took your plate out of your hand and took it to the sink in the open plan kitchen and washed them. You couldn’t say you’d ever met such a gentleman.

As he was doing that you prepared some pillows and blankets for his makeshift bed. It was time to say your good nights now, and part of you wished you would be sleeping in the same bed.

“Well I’ve had a wonderful night, and I hope I’ve redeemed myself for being so rude to you before.” He said, sincerely.

“Of course! Don’t worry about it, I also had a really nice time.” You grinned.

“Goodnight.” He whispered and then leaned over to place a soft kiss on your cheek.

“Goodnight Spencer.” You whispered back, frozen in surprise.

It took all of your energy to force yourself to walk to your bedroom and leave him.

anonymous asked:

I think Cesar and Lauren will help take some of the SM pressure off of sam and cait now that they're hitting the screen, which I think is quite good. And, what I love about Fersali- you can see they adore each other, but they're clearly JUST FRIENDS!

I agree. I think that they are great together and are going to have more of an SM presence in the Outlander world. I really enjoyed everything that they’ve shared since being cast and can’t wait for other snippets while filming season four. They seem to have so much fun together, but you’re right they’re clearly fiends.
