'Power Rangers': Original Green Ranger on Whether Tommy Should Be Female in Sequel
Jason David Frank also reveals he was kicked out of the reboot's premiere — so he missed the much-talked-about post-credits scene.

Okay, let’s see what mess is this…

I’m still Tommy for now! The Green Ranger is going to fill my shoes. But I still have my own shoes I’m wearing.

Um, ok?

The Green Ranger kicks butt. The Green Ranger has always been the most popular. No matter what Haim Saban does, people are going to love it. He would not allow something that fans will not like. After watching the movie, anything is possible. It doesn’t matter what color your skin is. It doesn’t matter if you’re female or you’re male. No matter what, when you’re in that spandex, and in that suit you are a superhero.

Yuzu's Training Gear

I can’t believe I haven’t realized/thought about this yet.

Does Yuzuru have a certain preference for UA gear that he brings to competitions? Just like his skating rituals and need to have Poohbear nearby…does he tend to favor certain UA gear? After looking at a lot of photos from practices this season it seems he likes to wear the same UA black short sleeve (the one with gold ‘Yuzuru Hanyu’ embellished on the neck). I think what I have always thought was that it was by random chance or he just liked the shirt. But is it possible that just like other competition routines he follows, he ‘only’ (and I use this term loosely since he could favor a few but it’s the same general idea) brings certain gear to competition? Kind of in the sense that a routine=good luck charm?

I mean it’s known from other photos that he likes black (known for it, really) but he also has red, light blue, navy blue, gray, and who knows what else in his training wardrobe. I just never considered it’s possible role in competition psyching…am I stupid for not realizing this?

“he just left in the middle of an argument” dump him
“he rolls his eyes when I start to cry” dump him
“we never agree on what movie to watch and we always go with his choice” dump him
“when he’s mad he’ll stand up straight and tower over me” dump him
“his friends make me uncomfortable” dump him
“he didn’t appreciate the gift I made him” dump him
“I don’t like that he drinks every day” dump him
“sometimes he ignores what I said during sex unless I say it again” dump him
“he told me he doesn’t like it when I wear my favorite sweater” dump him
“he threw something when he got mad once” dump him
“he won’t yell but sometimes he’ll just stop responding until I stop talking about it” dump him
“he doesn’t want me to go to my friend’s parties without him, but he never wants to go” dump him
“he pouts and says his last girlfriend did it for him” dump him
“he plays pranks on me that I don’t like” dump him
“he doesn’t think my jokes are very funny and makes fun of me for it” dump him
“he wants me to wear more make up” dump him
“he got angry that I cut my hair” dump him
“he still hasn’t met my parents” dump him
“he talks about me giving him kids, but we’ve never talked about our future” dump him
“he whines that condoms don’t feel as good” dump him
“I like having a boyfriend, but I have to put up with a lot for this one” dump him (:

The Most Broken Current Cartoon Character

I always thought the new and original characters were the most broken characters like  

Steven Quartz Unvierse has to live the fact that his mom, Rose Quartz, have commited some dark acts in the past

But probably the current most broken cartoon character out of all of them is Samurai Jack 

Originally posted by windwaver

What makes this man such a broken figure is he used to have a strong will that keep him moving, always had hope that he’ll find his way home, and always fight for justice. Even though it seem bad at first, but he finds another way, like he always had.

But now, after 50 years without aging alone, he lost himself in this forsaken time. He lost his honor as a samurai, lost his way to what to fight for and lost his faith to find his way back to the past

Leo is usually the one to make Takumi flustered, but sometimes Takumi catches him off guard (▰˘v˘▰) 

Just wanted to draw Leo being the big tomato he really is. Also RIP TAKUMI.

Bum & appearance/self-care

Ever since I read KS the first time, it stuck with me that Sangwoo mentioned that Bum’s clothes reeks like he never washes them. Furthermore we see Bum always wearing the same (shabby) clothes and that his hair is very greasy when Sangwoo showers him. (But maybe that was because Sangwoo kept Bum for a week in the basement. We don’t know if he has showered him before or if what we’ve seen was the first time he did it.) I started wondering why Bum doesn’t take much care of himself and came up with some explanations.

1) As a side effect/result of his mental illness he’s unable of properly taking care of himself. If you struggle with depressions tasks like cooking, showering, doing the laundry or cleaning the room become nearly impossible and something as simple as getting out of the bed takes most of your energy.

2) He simply can’t afford it. According to his landlady he doesn’t have a job, in fact he’s even in arrears with the rent. In ch 14 we get to see his apartment and the furniture is scarce as well as personal belongings. I haven’t seen any expensive things like a PC either (which would be necessary or at least very convenient for a college student). When he’s not able to afford the rent at least, there isn’t anything left for the water bill either. Thus showering and doing the laundry is a luxury. Stylish, new clothes aren’t on the list either. We don’t know how he’s even able to pay for food. It’s possible that his uncle pays him some pocket money in exchange for sex.

3) Following the idea that his uncle pays for Bum’s lifestyle but demands sex in exchange, Bum might not be taking care of himself on purpose. He wants to be as unappealing to his uncle as possible. So he keeps skipping showers in hope that the smell would repel his uncle.

Most likely it’s a mix of everything mentioned above. Now I made myself sad. I really want to know more about Bum’s past even if it’ll break my heart. (I’d also like to know what he has done in the 4 years between high school graduation and entering college.)

Do You Want To Grab A Coffee?

Carry On Countdown Day 1! For @carryon-countdown!

Prompt: Coffeeshop AU (AKA the Soulmates!coffeeshop!AU that no one asked for)


Baz hated soulmates.

You could always spot them when they came in for coffee. Giggling over nothing, one of them ordering both drinks because they just instinctually knew exactly what the other wanted. Their soulmarks proudly on display.

Girls coming in wearing a hoodie too big to be hers, boys reeking of bubblegum perfume. Girls with lipstick smudged on their necks that didn’t match the shade on their lips, boys with matching ‘I’m His’ sweaters.

Soulmate pairs were always filtering in and out, making the whole damn coffeeshop smell like sickly sweet hope, and Baz hated it.

The tiny girl he was serving at the counter wrinkled up her nose, cocking her head side to side.

She finally turned to him. “Okay! So, I’ll have a small butterscotch latte, and she,” she jerked her thumb to a Gigi Hadid doppelgänger leaning against the wall, “will have a mocha cappuccino.”

Baz just jerked his head once. “I’ll have it right out, Trixie.”

“Thanks, Baz,” Trixie chirped in that grating, horrifically squeaky voice she had.

Baz busied himself with their drinks, but he could still overhear Trixie tittering to her soulmate, the one that was far too beautiful to be real. They always came in during the lunch lull, so he was forced to hear them being gross to each other with painful clarity.

God, he hated soulmates.

As he placed the drinks on the counter, and Trixie’s girlfriend glided over to pick them up, his sleeve inched up.

Baz cursed, quickly yanking his black sweater in place. Luckily, the only one that had seen had been Baz himself, but he hated the reminder.

He hated what he saw when his sleeve rode up.

The bare, blank skin where a soul mark should be.

A-hole surgeon

Here’s my story on getting back at this prick surgeon. Backround: I am an anesthesiologist, and back when I was doing my residency training there was this loud-mouth prick orthopedic surgeon at the hospital I worked. Let’s call him Greg. He was always bitching about anesthesia delaying him, was never happy, and talked in this loud abrasive tone. Basically treated everyone like peons around him. One day I was in his room wearing a lead apron as we were doing a case that required intra-op X-rays. Unbeknownst to me, I had grabbed the personalized lead aprons of one of his colleagues, Dr. Smith  who was not working that day. As the case is going, Greg looks up and sees I am wearing Smith’s lead apron. He stops what he is doing and asks me, “are you Dr. Smith?” I replied that no I wasn’t. He then proceeds to flip out and ask “why the hell are you wearing his lead then?!? Take it off now and get another different lead apron at the rack!” (The rack had literally 10-15 other lead aprons that weren’t personalized). Me being a lowly resident at the time, I  bit my tongue and changed lead aprons in front of all the other coworkers in the room because this prick was making such a big deal out of it. A belittling experience and it made me hate the shit out of this guy. The revenge: One day soon after that experience, I grabbed some lunch at work and went into the lounge to eat. The lounge was empty, so I started to eat my hospital cafeteria sandwich in peace. While eating, I noticed a white coat that physicians wear hanging on a rack. I looked at the name and saw it belonged to that prick orthopedic surgeon Greg. After checking to make sure nobody else was in the lounge, I got up and grabbed the sopping wet pickle spear that came with my lunch and placed it in Dr. Greg’s white coat pocket and left. Why? Because fuck you Greg.

Was bored last night and decided to do a comparison of how I draw reverse!Genji now versus how he looked when I first designed him. Basically he took off half his outfit and started eating his vegetables haha

anonymous asked:

those suits... aren't for harry lol. edward sexton is currently working for bruno mars who starts tour next week. thus the comment about how the person is going to be wearing the suits on stage for spring, and why there would be so many stage appearances to call for so many suits purchased in one go.

thats what i thought too but I wasn’t sure he was actually working with him. those suits looks exactly like the ones Bruno Mars’ always wears and the picture was from 2 weeks ago. I doubt Harry is already picking concert outfits when he hasn’t even confirmed his record deal or well, anything about his future projects.

Dating Aaron Carpenter would include…


- posting weird and cute snapchats of him

- fans wanting to take pictures with both of you at the same time, with captions like “Mom & Dad

- him being super sweet and protective of you

- his face lighting up every time he talks about you, which is often

- developing cute little traditions, like cuddling up on the couch, eating cereal and watching cartoon shows almost every morning

- him probably being more hurt when anyone says something mean about you than you are yourself

- him making sure you always have a shirt or hoodie from him just so he can always see you in something that’s his

- having lazy drive through dinner in his car, both in sweatpants and you not even bothering to wear a bra cause he’s already seen you at your best and at your worst

- “What do you mean, I can’t bring Y/N?

- Naps. Pretty much everywhere.

- passionate sex

- laughing during sex; sometimes one of you would just start laughing at something random and it would just turn into a fit of giggles

- lying on his back and tracing his freckles and birth marks

- him doing the weirdest shit to make you laugh

- you having a picture of both of you holding hands as your screensaver, and your favorite picture of him as your background

- him sometimes being whiny “Y/N .. Come heeeeere

- “Hey sexy

- him commenting cute things on your Instagram pictures and some fans screenshotting and posting about it

- Cameron being like a brother cause you’re seeing him almost every day

- couple mirror selfies for snapchat, captioning it “Are we couple goals, yet?

- him being excited every time he brings something from traveling that he thought you might like “Y/N I got you something!

- giving each other back massages

- him having his favorite picture of you as his screensaver, and a picture of both of you making weird faces as his background

- Facetiming each other, sometimes until early in the morning while he’s in another country

- him singing or humming a song at the most random times; sometimes he’d sing your name to make you smile

- holding hands in public

- sitting on his lap when you’re with the guys, and him constantly having his hands on your waist or thigh

- you being slightly worried, but also pretty entertained whenever he’s filming challenges with the guys 

- “I swear if you hurt yourself, I’ll be mad” an hour later: “Y/N please don’t be mad, but…

- being lazy af sometimes

- having seen him cry at one point, cause he trusts you enough to be completely open and vulnerable, and vice versa. You’d comfort each other and talk about everything that bothers you and it would only make your bond stronger

- sticking up for each other in public “Why would you say that about her? You don’t even know her” 



Finally something written on this blog again :)

I hope you enjoy!


MASTERLIST

Check Please/Back to the Future AU

Okay, so when Bitty wears his puffy vest, it has always reminded me of… well, you’ve guessed it, Marty McFly from Back to the Future.

This Back to the Future AU needs to happen.

So, this is how it’s going to go down.

Bitty needs a final science credit to qualify for graduation, but the only class he can get into last minute (and doesn’t require a prerequisite course he doesn’t have) is Theory of Physics for Non-Majors that’s taught by an eccentric professor who may or may not sound like Rasputin from that one animated Anastasia movie that Bitty secretly loves. (He has a crush on Dimitri, okay? But who doesn’t???)

So, Bitty and this Physics prof get on surprisingly well and the Professor says that he’s been looking for a lab assistant this semester. Bitty, after checking that it doesn’t interfere with his hockey schedule, takes the job because he could use the money. (Going to see Jack in Providence so often is starting to add up quickly.)

Bitty’s job is mostly filing papers, picking things up around the lap, and helping the Professor with various experiments and projects he’s building. Most of the time, Bitty has no idea what’s going on when the Professor starts talking Physics. Bitty nods along and holds stuff like ends of wires and stuff like that. It it seems to make the Professor happy.

One evening, Bitty gets called into the university labs. When he gets there, the Professor announces that he’s invented a time machine! (Said time machine is also powered by some illegal plutonium, but uhhhh, if Samwell admin asks, that’s not true.)

what makes you ship yoonseok more than, say, jihope/vhope? why is it your fave hoseok ship? is it the whole dynamics thing?

Ah…I blame it all on Yoongi, actually. I enjoy Hoseok with pretty much everyone but Yoongi…if it isn’t with Hoseok (or Jin) then I don’t really see it romo that much. And it all comes with the way Yoongi changes when he’s with Hoseok. I don’t deny Yoongz has a pretty cute rel with all Bangtan but Hobi is different and really no one can deny it. He is the only one that can bring that playful part the Yoongi is always hiding,

And like a bunch of small details that together show what a freaking beautiful rel they have. To list some: Yoongi’s big impression on Hobi when they met (he was only wearing boxers lol), “I gain strength from looking at you”, Yoongi tearing up when Hobi had to bungee jump, they recognize each other by the sound of their sighs, Yoongi staring at Hobi, Yoongi falling effortlessly on Hobi’s lap, the bathrobe selcas, Yoongi giving Hobi his food, they both love hand holding, Yoongi spending new years at the dorm so Hobi wouldn’t be alone, “SeokSeok”, Yoongi can’t say no to Hobi, wearing matching tracksuits and jackets, “The prince of the forest”, singing together, Hobi moaning for Yoongi, they are fire on stage, Jhooooooppeeee, SOULPARTNERS!!!!, that whole bday timeline (I died)

I honestly think Hoseok is good for Yoongi. I believe he takes him out of the dark moments and at the same time, Yoongi grounds Hobi when things get too much. They are just perfect together, I mean look at them!!!

Originally posted by pastelyoonseok

Also, their FFs are beautiful and this is one of my most fave FF ever. So gorgeous <3

So in summary, Yoongi when he’s with Hobi is my fave Yoongi. Everything is soft and loving. They are beautiful and they warm my heart. 

Thanks for asking anon!! Excuse my emo self.

Love Square Week- Fleeting Moments

Truth: Adrien doesn’t generally try to impress people. 

But he finds himself wanting to impress Marinette, just for a second. So when he finds out her birthday’s coming up, he searches everywhere for a good present, to make her happy. Plagg laughs at him as he steps into a diamond shop. 

“Thought you didn’t like showing off?”

“It’s Marinette. And I can afford it. And she deserves something special.” 

He looks through the jewelry, waiting to see the perfect present… and then he spots them. 

A pair of beautiful pink diamonds, shaped into little rosettes. 

Earrings. 

Truth: Ladybug is responsible, and would never do something as stupid as take out her Miraculous. 

But when Adrien gives her real diamonds, what’s she supposed to do other than put them in? He beams, clearly ecstatic that she likes them enough to take the ones she always wears out. 

She feels guilty, knowing that she’s not being very responsible, but Adrien makes her lose sight of what’s most important. 

Anyway, it’s just for, like, ten minutes. Just until he’s gone. What are the chances of an akuma attack in the next ten minutes?

Well, a blast tells her exactly the chances. 

100%.

And as her purse is knocked up, flying away, she realizes with a panic that she should never have taken out her earrings, even for a moment. 

Truth: Ladybug and Chat Noir trust each other.

But in the moment, Chat’s watching as Marinette stumbles over her words, clearly trying to tell him something about the akuma, and he shakes his head, smirking. 

“Hey, let’s get you out of here, Princess. My Lady and I will take care of it,” he tells her. 

“No, you don’t understand, it’s not what you think, Ladybug’s not coming-” 

“Of course she is,” he snaps, lifting Marinette up. “She always comes.”

But she doesn’t, not until long after he’s lost, and he realizes slowly that he should have avoided all of this, if he’d trusted Marinette a bit more… and Ladybug a bit less. 

But she does, eventually, show up, and save the day. He was right in the end. And any bruises he’s gotten because he expected her to show up are just part of the job. 

Truth: Adrien would never intentionally make someone feel bad, especially his Lady. 

But it only takes a second to say something wrong, to lash out, and when he looks up at the girl who left him for dead for the better part of the fight, he can’t help but ask. 

“Where were you? What was more important than this job? Than keeping the city safe?”

She flinches at the questions. “I… I tried to get there, but my earrings-”

“What? You lost them? They stopped working? That’s not even possible, the Miraculous-”

“I took them out, okay?” 

“I’m sorry, you WHAT?” 

She frowns, crossing her arms defensively. “A guy in my class got me earrings. So I thought I’d take the Miraculous out for ten minutes to show him I liked them.”

He frowns. Does everyone give girls earrings today? 

Wait. 

Truth: Adrien Agreste is completely oblivious.

But it just takes a moment for an idea to set in. Just an idea. Nothing that really proves anything. 

But the oblivion is fading. 

And this moment won’t be as fleeting. 

the thought of Mila asking Mickey for advice about how to romance Sara is so funny cause he’d be totally oblivious. like, he’s always prepared for the Male Threat™ so when Mila comes along and asks him about Sara’s favorite foods Mickey thinks she’s just being a good friend. but then her questions get increasingly nosy like “does Sara like being hugged” and “what size jacket does she wear (so i can get her a Russia one)” and Mickey is like what is this….

You hurried to close the apartment door to get away from the cold.

“Hello?” You called to see if he was home. No answer. You took off your jacket and hung it up. It had been a long day at the studio and you were exhausted. You walked into your bedroom and searched for something warm to wear and found one of Eddies navy blue knitted sweater. You stripped and put it on before heading to the kitchen in your panties. A yellow post-it note was left on the table.

“In a meeting, I’ll be home in a few hours, Love Eddie” With a little heart on the end.

A smile formed on your lips as you looked through your cabinets to see if you had any wine left. You found an unopened bottle of some cheap red wine and poured it in a glass. His regular meetings would end about five p.m. , meaning you had a few hours for yourself.

But you were bored. For the first time in a week, you felt like you had spare time.

With your wine glas in your hand, you walked to your living room.

Sitting down, you turned on the tv. But you felt too distracted to concentrate. You sighed in frustration and went to the kitchen to refill your glass. You stood in silence for a few minutes before going back to the hallway.

 Eddie kept a folder with all his finished work under a little table by the door. You sat down on the floor and began reading some. You tried to sound like Eddie and said:

“This story describes a miracle” You laughed a little at yourself before closing the script and finding another.

Soon enough you’d read through them all. You sighed again and went back to your bedroom.

Plugging your phone into the sound system in your apartment, you put your playlist on shuffle. The song Someone new by Hozier came on and you put up the volume. You loved Hozier. 

You put down your wine glass and started dancing in the mirror. Your hips swung from side to side as your hands made their way up and down your body. You felt sexy. You couldn’t but laugh at your own reflection. You picked up your wine glass and drank the remaining liquid. You closed your eyes and let your body swing to the music as you sang along with the lyric. The song came to an end with you singing

“I fall in love just a little, oh little bit, everyday with someone new-” You almost dropped the glass when you heard the familiar voice behind you.

“Oh, well I sure hope not” Eddie was standing in the doorframe with a big smile on his lips, his hands in his pockets. You knew you flushed a little as you walked towards him.

“Shit, you really scared me” You said and sat down on your bed.

“Can’t I watch my beautiful girl dance?” He raised his eyebrow but the smile remained on his lips.

“And… well why are my scripts laying all over the floor?” He said and made a gesture towards the hallway as he got closer to the bed. His hands remaining in his pockets. You felt a little embarrassed again. He sat down on the bed and pulled you into a hug from behind.

“Well can’t I read my boyfriends old scripts in funny voices” He gave you a weird look before laughing a little.

“Did you find them interesting? Any favourite parts?” Hi smirked and played with your hands.

“Yeah, I think i remember something about giving Eddie Redmayne head.” The words that came out of your mouth surprised you as much as it gave you confidence. Eddie squeezed your hand before pushing your back against the bed, making squeak and laughter leave your mouth. He laid on his side, almost over you. You both laughed as he gave you a fast kiss.

“God, you’re so hot when you dance. In my shirt” You cupped his face and kissed his freckled nose. You had complete eye contact as the room stayed silent.

“God I love you” He said as he rested his hand on your cheek, stroking away some hair from your face. You answered him with a kiss.

“Should we go make dinner?” You said and pouted your lips. You really wanted to lay there forever but you weren’t sure if he was in a cuddly mood. He smirked and put his hands around your waist.

“Not before I make love to my beautiful future wife”

“When I make a movie I always have to have a theme, preferably in one word that I can - when I made The Conversation the theme was privacy. When I made The Godfather the theme was succession.

And I taught my children to try to know what that big theme is because…you have to answer so many questions every day, like should she have long hair or short hair? Should she wear a dress or a skirt? Should he have a car or should it be a bicycle? And you know the answer so you just fire them off. But once in a while you don’t know the answer. And that’s when you say, well, what is the theme?

I remember in The Conversation when we went picking sort of trench coats for the character that Gene Hackman - and I didn’t know which one. I didn’t want him to look too much like a detective. He wasn’t really a detective. And then I said to myself, well, what’s the theme? And I said privacy. So there was one coat that was a plastic coat that you could see through. So I chose that.”

– Francis Ford Coppola speaking with Terry Gross

Stills from The Conversation (1974, dir. Francis Ford Coppola)
