i am having a fabulous time here

Witch tip: Talk to Nature

Nature isn’t just a tool that we can work to our will– forming a relationship with the surrounding nature in your area will get you much farther than simply forcing and manipulating it to do as you say.

I’m currently on vacation in the mountains, and I am having a fabulous time, and I honestly can credit that to the nature around us.

When we first arrived, I stood outside and talked to the mountains. I told them that I hoped to be of no disturbance to them (as I realize that I am an intruder in their land), and I told them that I respected their beauty and strength. I told them that I hoped to show them only kindness and respect, and, in return, I asked that they protect me and my family from any harm that may come our way on our trip.

Every day that I’ve been here, I’ve taken a few minutes to talk to the mountains. I thank them, and I tell them what I’ll be doing that day.

This honestly works wonders. When I told them that I was scared of the bugs that kept coming into my room, bugs started respecting my personal bubble. When I asked that they hold off the storms while we were kayaking, the storms didn’t start until right after our kayak trip ended. When nightmares scared me in the middle of the night, the strength of the mountains comforted me.

Be kind and respectful to the world, and it will do the same for you.

LET'S HAVE SOME CAKE!!!

Happy Friday shipsters, and non-shipsters! I realize that I have been on a little self-imposed blogging boycott, but I decided today was a good day to have some fun. It has been a tough personal week with work commitments and a death in our family. While that can be sobering on many fronts, it also affords you time to reflect, and allows you to focus on happier thoughts and shared remembrances with those you love.

Imagine my surprise when I logged on yesterday to those awesome pictures from EW. I absolutely loved them, and I am not ashamed to say it!! FINALLY, we saw Jamie and Claire and the ship and the beach and I knew OL has arrived! While Starz as a general rule sucks at overall promo, their trailers are quite good, and EW plays up puff better than anyone. I am actually ok with that….it’s what they do. So what if some pics are “cheesy”, or over the top???…GOOD! I loved sea-swept Jamie. The messy hair, dirty shirt, splotchy fair skin…he looked fab! I didn’t expect him to look like he stepped off rhe Oasis of the Seas sprayed down with Coppertone 50, and beach blanket under his arm. He was manly, and hot! And our Claire was glorious!!! I swear, that woman could put on a rubber beach ball and make it look great. The fact that there are multiple covers was a great idea, and I am over the moon that Cait finally got one of her own!!

I have read several posts today about the bts stuff, and couldn’t agree more. We got to see Sam and Cait again in those, and it was a pleasure to behold. All I will say on that front is that there is a comfort and intimacy about them that is not for show, and just solidified my thoughts that it is still there…maybe more so than ever.

But do you know what I loved the most??? The shipsters!! Look at Tumblr yesterday. It was lit up like a Christmas tree. The gif masters were on full display with all of their glory, the word smith’s were thoughtful, funny, sometimes a “little” snarky, and overall engaging. And everyone, with the exception of some idiot anon’s had FUN!! Now do you understand why factions “attack” shippers? If not, let me spell it out for you.

Amazing women sit behind a keyboard with a community of like-minded women and accomplish in a matter of hours what it takes others weeks and months to work out. The gifs and pictures alone created more positive promo than a hired team from a major studio, and got it right! And, those same women picked up on every single thing in that photoshoot because they pay attention to the details. And, they engaged the stars on SM, which in turn caused our two leads to come out and play….with us, and more importantly, each other. For the negative Nellie’s who will scream “it’s just promo”., you’re damn right it is. It is about time they promoted the show that made them stars, at least in our eyes. But, they gave us a little peek of themselves as well, and we all know that has been buried under a rock….same as us. But, we saw what we have always seen, and I don’t need to shout it from the rafters.

My point….ENJOY it! Have fun with it! Live in the moment…it’s what we used to do. Don’t worry about what “might” happen tomorrow, or next week….only time will give us that. But just maybe, we will be surprised, just like we were yesterday. In the meantime, I am having more cake, and will walk it off later.

Fabulous job sweet shipsters. You showed up and showed out! That is what fanning is all about, and you did it together. And stop letting others steal your joy. With the talent around here, those folks are dead in the water, and they know it. They really don’t have the talent, skill, or resilience to keep the ship on lock for long.

Rock on, and happy weekend!💖💖💖

Second time out/back from seeing Beauty and the Beast **SPOILERS ABOUND**

(aka bear with me b/c this review is a week and a half late and I can actually comment on stuff I loved throughout it. It might end up being long af so I’m sorry in advance bc I talk about when everyone got cast too. This is probably filled with typos.)

PPS: I am the minority who loved it deeply, and don’t have nothing to complain about. Except a few words on the group of people who sat beside me tonight and would not shut up during Evermore and the transformation scene aka MY MOST FAVOURITE DISNEY KISS EVER)

So lets get down to it. I LOVED this movie the first time I saw it. As I have stated numerous times through tags. Ill be real here I was skeptical as hell about this being turned into a LA remake. But as the casting was announced my worries went away completely?

BECAUSE JESUS CHRIST WHAT A FABULOUS CAST! I don’t even know who to start with honestly? All of them ARE JUST SO GOOD???

We’ll just start with the most obvious choice (and the one who had the most flack after being cast)

And that is the absolute wonder and light of my life DAN FUCKING STEVENS

BECAUSE THIS GUY. OMG. ANYTHING HE DID IN THIS MOVIE JUST…BLEW. ME. THE. FUCK. AWAY??? And I’m just so grateful and forever indebted to him for bringing quite possibly the best reinterpretation of the Beast/Adam to life. Like honestly the Beast is my favourite character ever he has been since I was 5 and I just…NO AMOUNT OF WORDS COULD DESCRIBE IT. (actually I have TONS of words and i’ll get more into this later) but I’m moving on for now.

Emma Thompson I love Emma T so much I have since forever and she’s so charming and soft hearted as Mrs Potts. Say what you will about the accents used in this movie I loved that she was English….

And Luke Evans I knew about him prior to this and vaguely, through watching him in The Hobbit and that god awful movie version of the Three Musketeers (same can be said for Dan, b/c before I watched some of his other stuff I had only know him from Night at the Museum 3)

Anyway…

Luke brought such a great energy to this character and I loved how Gaston started out as an okay dude but slowly dissented into his villainy? The way he portrayed this was astounding b/c as soon as the script called for the change up he handled it with such ease? And wow I just love Gaston so much in this movie.

Josh Gad we gotta talk about FUCKING JOSH GAD I’m not getting into the knitty gritty of things since its not my place to comment on such but I LOVED HIM IN THIS ROLE SO MUCH MORE THAN I LOVED HIM IN FROZEN? He’s so hilarious.  AND HIS LINES WERE A+++

He just brought so much classiness to LeFou and he just made him so likable?  and the fact that HE FOUGHT TO KEEP IN THE SNOWMAN GAG FROM THE ORIGINAL VERSION. I honestly hope they give me all the deleted scenes from this movie.

FUCKING EWAN MCGREGOR AND SIR IAN MCKELLEN AS COGSWORTH AND LUMIERE I just WOW WHAT A GREAT ACTING COMBO (aka all ive ever wanted from the remains of my dull life.)

AND AUDRA MCDONALD AS GARDEROBE AND STANLEY ‘ACTUAL KING OF EVERYTHING HE IS IN’ TUCCI as a sassy piano THAT WAS LITERALLY CREATED FROM SCRATCH FOR HIM? (more on these two later as well because omg they are everything to me and stole my heart??)

AND KEVIN  FUCKING  KLINE omg I loved him so much in this movie just PERFECT honestly.

I’m trying to keep this short so I can move on to my next bunch of thoughts. And not just yap about the casting. (Bullet points listed below, bc I’m getting into the changes) And to begin:

THE SCENARY AND CGI IN THIS MOVIE WERE FUCKING ASTOUNDING? I DIED? IT WAS BEAUTIFUL, say what you want about what the beast looked like. Dan Stevens exhausted himself entirely for 2-3 months just to make the beast into a computer animated caricature. AND I LOVED THE ANIMATION ON THE CASTLE STAFF? I also really loved the backstories for everyone it just filled in so much that I found lacking in the original. Just everything that filled in all the plotholes were A++

  • THE PROLOGUE and it being narrated by the ENCHANTRESS.(Side note: I loved the technicalities and consequences with this new curse)
  • DAN STEVENS GRACING ME WITH HIS FAB TALENT AND NOT SAYING A THING DURING SAID PROLOGUE AND JUST LAUGHING EVILLY AND YET FLAWLESSLY GETTING THE POINT ACROSS THAT THE PRINCE BEFORE MEETING BELLE WAS AN ABSOLUTE PANSY ASS DICK? Also him in the black get up with the black swan make up?? a lookTM
  • THE CLOSE UPS OF GARDEROBE AND CADENZA AND THEIR LITTLE DOGGO FRU FRU BEFORE THE CASTLE IS CHANGED INTO OBJECTS?? THE FACT THAT FRU FRU IS THEIR DOG?  
  •  THAT WHOLE OPENING SEQUENCE IS INTENSE AS HELL
  • Omg when Gaston stepped on Belle’s cabbages THERE WERE LIKE 3-4 KIDS THAT GASPED. It made me smile omg.
  • When Maurice and Phillipe were heading out of town and in the woods heading to the castle. One child was like “aww look at the horsey” I mean…
  • WHEN MAURICE IS IN THE CASTLE AND MEETS CHIP everyone laughed like honestly I was blessed with actually being a a cinema room full of people that laughed and reacted to stuff b/c last week when I went there were crickets, some child mad an off hand comment later on in the movie when Beast invites Belle to dinner and he does the smileTM I kid you not I heard “look his tiny teeth” I love his tiny fangs so much hes just so awkwardly endearing altogether.
  • OKAY OKAY OKAY SO WHEN BELLE HEADS UP TO THE CASTLE TO FIND HER DADDO AND SHES AT THE CELL IM PRETTY SURE THEY PLAY THE SCORE TO EVERMORE? its like lowkey but I NOTICED IT AND IT WAS GLORIOUS.
  • all the songs in this movie and the additional lyrics woven into the film added 30 years to my life.
  • THE WHOLE “GASTON” NUMBER WAS FABULOUS AND EVERYTHING AND MORE ITS BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL VERSION THAT WHOLE MOMENT WHEN THEY BREAK TO CLAP AND STOP ON THE TABLE AND THE FACT THAT THE SCORE FOR THAT BIT SOUNDS LIKE A CAVALRY CHARGE AND THE WHOLE “SAY IT AGAIN” BIT AFTER THE “I USE ANTLERS IN ALL OF MY DECORATING” LINE.
  • BUT LIKE THERE IS MORE BECAUSE OMG THEY GAVE COGSWORTH STUFF TO SING DURING “BE OUR GUEST” INSTEAD OF JUST “SOMETHING THERE”. LIKE THE ONLY OTHER TIME HE SINGS IS IN THE ORIGINAL DURING “HUMAN AGAIN” I love the flawless smooth transition from SIR IAN MCKELLEN belting out the COURSE BY COURSE bit of that verse and Ewan being like ONE BY ONE immediately after? honestly I always fist bump during that moment when I listen to the soundtrack. AND THE WHOLE NUMBER IN THE MOVIE IS JUST SOO GREAT. I love my crotchety old clock and dramatically extra candlestick. the best BROTP.
  • Ok, so the people I sat beside started laughing during little Adam’s part in Days In the Sun and omg I was off hand annoyed because it ruined my chance to start the water works even though I still cried.
  • BEAST TRASHING ON ROMEO AND JULIET WILL FOREVER BE ICONIC to me I LOVE WELL READ BEAST SO MUCH I’m tired of the ‘but I wish he would have stayed illiterate’ statements.
  •  EVERYONE. AND WHEN I SAY EVERYONE I MEAN EVERYONE ERRUPTED INTO LAUGHTER WHEN BEAST HAULED THAT BIG ASS SNOWBALL AT BELLE’S HEAD.
  • ALSO any time Beast gave Belle his little smiles??? they were so pure and cute
  • So seeing this movie a second time the yellow dress discourse is quiet frankly ?? to me I loved it AND I LOVE THE FACT THAT DAN STEVENS MADE THE BEAST UTTERLY DISTRESSED OVER ASKING HER FOR A DANCE IN THE BALLROOM? (THAT WHOLE SEQUENCE IS SO FUCKING GORGEOUS)
  • LIKE…I JUST LOVE HOW MUCH LIFE AND PERSONALITY AND 3 DIMENSIONALISM HE GAVE HIM B/C I WILL BE TALKING ABOUT THIS PORTRAYAL UNTIL IM DEAD AND IN THE GROUND.
  • Which brings me to the make up scene everyone laughed and I almost could not stop laughing at the scene change.
  • Emma Thompson’s version of Beauty and the Beast is so wonderful. I love it.
  • THE FIRST TIME I HEARD EVERMORE IN THE MOVIE I WAS STUNNED INTO SILENCE AND JUST DAN STEVENS AGAIN GRACING ME WITH SUCH RAW EMOTION AND TALENT. SIGH I JUST LOVE THAT WHOLE SEQUENCE, I WOULD HAVE LOVED IT EVEN MORE HAD I BEEN REALLY INTO THE SECOND TIME SEEING IT BUT ALAS THE PERSON BESIDE ME WAS LAUGHING AND I WAS JUST LIKE… RUDE. HONESTLY THOUGH THE PAIR OF PIPES DAN STEVENS HAS HE HAS SUCH A BEAUTFUL RANGE AND WHEN HE SINGS ANGELS DESCEND FROM HEAVEN, AND JUST THIS WHOLE FUCKING SONG GAVE ME THE LAARGEST EARGASM THE FIRST TIME I HEARD IT. LIKE HONESTLY GOD BLESS ALAN MUSICAL GENIEUS KING MENKEN
  • Honestly everyone is at war against whether Josh or Dan’s version is better and I just prefer Dan’s version so much. I found Josh Groban’s version too slow even though he sings like an angel too.  
  • tt.tt  THE MOB SONG and the castle staff going up in arms was always my fave in the 90s version. And it did not disappoint.

Bullet points are done I am heading into paragraph summarizing my thoughts on the last 30-40 minutes. BECAUSE THIS SHIT WAS UNREAL, and HARROWINGLY DARK. AND I LOVED THESE CHANGES FROM THE ORIGINAL.

THE WHOLE CASTLE TURRET CHASE SCENE WAS SO FUCKING GOOD I HAD MULTIPLE HEAR TATTACKSTHE FACT THEY SWITCHED UP THE HUNTING KNIFE AND REPLACED IT WITH A PISTOL that moment when the Beast gets shot oh god.

Like when Belle comes back and sees the Beast and he literally SHOUTS OUT HER NAME I am crying?? and deceased?? and then he gets shot 2 more times honestly this was equally amazing and heartbreakingly brutal.

And let me tell the whole concept of the castle actually breaking apart as the petals fall, that is just such a neat spin and I love it.


So like I said I found the twist with the curse fascinating because in the original the only thing it focused largely on was the Beast, Mrs Potts, Plumette, Lumiere , Cogsworth and FruFru. I LOVE THAT THE MOVIE CEMENTED AND ROUNDED ALL OF THE CASTLE STAFF AND GAVE THEM A LARGER SPOLIGHT THAN IN THE ORIGINAL LIKE THE CASTLE STAFF MAKES UP HALF OF THE CAST/CHARACTERS FOR THIS MOVIE. For the past week and a half people have said why was the inanimate scene so long and drawn out? Because the castle staff are the greatest and the only family the Beast has besides Belle that’s why… the end. Also I ship the hell out of Cadenza & Garderobe, Plumette and Lumiere AND MR AND MRS POTTS OMG.

THE WHOLE INANIMATION SEQUENCE HAD MY ENTIRE SOUL IN SHREADS, IVE ??? NEVER?? CRIED??? SO MUCH IN MY LIFE??? LIKE LUMIERE HOLDING PLUMETTE IN HIS ARMS AND SETTING HER DOWN GENTLY AND MRS POTTS NOT BEING ABLE TO GET TO CHIP AND CHIP ALMOST FUCKING BREAKING BUT THE COATHANGER CATCHING HIM THE LAST SECOND AS HIS SAUCER BREAKS?  CADENZA AND GADEROBE REUNITING AND HER TELLING HIM THAT HE IS BRAVE JUST BEFORE SHE FADES AWAY AND HIM BEGGING HER NOT TO LEAVE HIM?? I MEAN THAT IS THE TEXTBOOK DEFINIITION OF PURE AND UTTER DEVOTION RIGHT THERE FRIENDS.THE SADDEST THING ABOUT THEIR INANIMATION SCENE IS THE FACT THAT THEIR DOGGO FRU FRU BECOMES INANIMATE BETWEEN THEM. COGSWORTH AND LUMIERE SAYING GOODBYE. NEED I SAY MORE.

BUT THEN THE TRANSFORMATION SCENE HAPPENED AND I COULD NOT BREATHE I LOVEED HOW THEY FILMED THIS SCENE AND HOW EMMA AND DAN PLAYED THIS SCENE. NEVER IN MY LIFE WILL I LOVE ANYTHING AS MUCH AS I LOVE THIS SCENE.

Everyone is like “well why didn’t they say anything?”

I LOVED that HE DID NOT NEED TO SAY ‘BELLE, ITS ME?”

this iconic masterly filmed sequence only needed to be filmed with sheer BODY LANGUAGE, VISUAL EXPRESSIONS AND EMOTIONS COMING FROM BOTH DAN AND EMMA AND I JUST AM ASTOUNDED? EVERYTHING THEY FELT COULD BE SEEN BY THE AUDIENCE I FELT THAT SHIT DEEP IN MY SOUL AND IVE ANALYZED EVERYTHING LEADING UP TO THE KISS. FROM THEIR LOOKS OF DAZED WONDERMENT AFTER BEAST TURNS BACK INTO A HUMAN, AND HIS LITTLE HUFF OF RELIEF AFTER HE INTIALLY TURNS AROUND AND FACES EMMA, TO DAN’S HEAVY BREATHING, BELLE PLAYING WITH HIS HAIR AND HIM THREADING HIS FINGERS THROUGH HERS IN TURN? THE FACE TOUCH AS SHE IS LOOKING FOR ANY SIGN THAT THIS IS INFACT THAT GUY SHE LOVES?? (HONEST TO GOD THAT SHOT OF DAN HE IS ALREADY A BEAUTFUL GUY BUT HOLY HELL HE LOOKED SO GOOD IN THIS SCENE) THE CLOSE UP SHOT OF HIS EYES. HER RELIEVED LAUGH AND THE IMMENSE GENTLE CAUTION BETWEEN THEM JUST BEFORE THEY KISS AND THAT GIANT ASS INHALE DAN TAKES AS SOON AS THEY MAKE CONTACT ALSO MENTIONING THE FACT THAT ONCE THEY DO KISS HER HAND MOVES FROM HIS CHEST TO HIS WAIST.

THIS WHOLE SCENE IS LITERALLY THE LIVING EMBODIMENT OF THE PATRICK STEWART ACTING GIF

I LOVE THIS KISS SO MUCH HONESTLY ITS MY FAVOURITE DISNEY KISS.

The best was when they all became human again and reunited and were left with parting gifts from the curse. I laughed out loud when they showed Stanley Tucci with no teeth. 

UGH AND THE LAST SCENE WITH CADENZA BEING SO FUCKING HAPPY AND SMILING AS THE WIFEY IS SINGING again.

EMMA AND AUDRA singing the final number omg the whole coronation dance scene was everything. 

AND JUST THIS WHOLE MOVIE IS FABULOUS AND I NEEDED THE DVD TO BE RELEASED YESTERDAY.

Though humans believe they have a monopoly on fashion trends, Our Friends Below are no strangers to mercurial styles. Clothes aren’t a huge deal, except insofar as they pair well or poorly with horns.

Above: a sample of ten popular horn styles and what they communicate.

1. The Classic. A great way of communicating, “Horn fashion peaked four thousand years ago. I have no time for all this nonsense, now let’s get down to business.” Any noble with these horns is either a tedious stick-in-the-mud or a principled stalwart. (Or a young noble making a flimsy claim of ‘I’m not like those other frivolous youths.’)

2. Sleek. Favored by nobles who aspire to be lithe, slippery tricksters. All the actual tricksters have realized this and chosen some other horn style, and so these indicate a smug, arrogant noble who is much less (or more) dangerous than they think they are.

3. Wavy. Excellent for projecting an air of erotic, tantalizing power; common choice among succubi, incubi, etc. Often draped with chains of fabulously rare stones.

4. Feral. Having wild, curly clusters of horns is a sign of being related to satyrs; going overboard with it is a dead giveaway that the noble is playing up a tiny shred of heritage.

5. The Bull. The only style that communicates “I am not here to fuck around” more than The Classic. Either firmly resolute or just impossibly stubborn.

6. Wild Desert. Unbearable hippie, but definitely knows a thing or two about syncretic mysticism. Listen close, but it might just be a total waste of time.

7. Runic. Prestigious symbol of arcane mastery, impossible to convincingly fake. Definitely knows some spells that’ll shock the most jaded noble, and some they know to never speak aloud.

8. Stylish Asymmetry. For hip, avant-garde nobles glued to their Brimstone smartphones. Also seen on old nobles making a desperate bid to fit in with the Youth of Today.

9. Overgrown. For nobles who reject the stuffy old geometry of alchemical glyphs, embracing untamed magic in the wild parts of the Underworld. Often found with Wild Desert nobility.

10. The Buck. The Bull’s less-restrained friend; none of the simmering poise, all of the hellbent conviction. Best to let them win an argument.

The ultra fabulous and very darling Elizabeth Welch in her custom Viscountess original! There was a time in my life where the very inkling that Christine Daae would be wearing one of my designs could not even have crossed my mind and yet somehow we’re here. (I am officially dubbing that expression my “fitting face” as in the expression that I have when I’m in the middle of a big troubleshooting moment)

I absolutely could not be more flattered and floored that she chose to collaborate with me on this and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!

Thank you for you, my followers. If I hadn’t started this blog over two years ago, I don’t think I would be this good at drawing as I am now. Tumblr and MLP fandom made me draw a lot and thanks to it, I became better with everything art related, not just ponies. Mod wants to give a big loving hug to every follower I have!

Dear Dad and Mike

Well, it’s not going too badly, but one disadvantage is that we never get up in time to buy things like writing paper etc!! (as you can see) We play pretty long hours but if we ever feel like going out we can do so because the majority of places stay open till about 7 or 8 in the morning. I bought a cheap watch at a weekly market they have here, it’s quite good, & keeps good time (cost about 22/- [£1.10]) Because we get up so late in the day, we don’t have time to write, that’s why I’m writing now at 10.30 [am] before I go to sleep.

To Mike.

Tony Sheridan, who was on Oh Boy! & the Empire is in Hamburg & we’re quite good friends. He played with us the other night for a guest spot. Our club’s big but the atmosphere at the place where Sheridan used to play (The Top Ten) is fabulous, & ours is pretty useless. I’m getting pretty homesick, & even more so now because recently we’ve heard that we may be kept on & may be in Germany for ages! We really can’t refuse if they give us the chance because the money is much better than at home. Everything’s mad here. People never sleep. The food is… just like English food gone wrong. Potatoes with salad, cold tomatoes, lettuce & that grand luxury dish–potatoes frittes or something ie. chips. Sausages are extremely long and are made with fish & meat. Ugh! Ah well, we can buy corn flakes, beefsteak, liver, mashed potatoes etc, at the local cafe now so we’re eating well. We can get a glass of milk for about 13 pfennigs [1p] so that’s cheap enough. Anyway, I’d rather be home.

Don’t be frightened to write. I won’t be annoyed if you do.

Love & Auf Wiedersehen

Paul

This innocent account of shopping for watches in open-air markets, buying cornflakes and drinking milk of course represents only a fraction of what Paul has been doing since his arrival in Hamburg. With typical considerateness, he doesn’t want to worry or offend his father–still less risk being summarily ordered home. Here’s just a little of what he left out: He’s in Hamburg’s St Pauli district, home of the Reeperbahn, Europe’s most notorious red-light area, surrounded by strip clubs, prostitutes, porno bookshops, blue movie shows, pimps, transvestites and gangsters. His new employer, Bruno Koschmider, is a circus clown turned strip-club owner who enjoys beating up customers with a cosh or a wooden chair-leg while thuggish waiters hold the victim helpless. The Beatles aren’t appearing at Koschmider’s large, busy Kaiserkeller club as they’d expected, but at a run-down strip joint nearby where they’re being used virtually as slave labour, playing for four-and-a-half hours with only three 30-minute breaks each week-night, and for six hours at weekends. The living accommodation provided for the five of them consists of two stone-walled, windowless, airless storerooms at the rear of a porno cinema called the Bambi Kino, with no washing facilities but the cinema’s gents’ toilet: all in all a scene of squalor and degradation that would have made his fastidious mother weep.

2 miles each yesterday and today, days 3 and 4 of 30. The first mile of today’s run was the best first mile I’ve had in months as far as just rolling into feeling great in my body immediately. Such a wonderful experience to not have a struggle.

This is Grace and her zucchini. A neighbor was harvesting when we walked by the other day, so Grace and I took the zucchini on a 3 mile walk with us.

‘Unfuckwithable’: Life goal.
I had an issue with our director during our monthly 'all staff’ meeting yesterday. There are changes that are significant in our system coming in the next 2 years and I asked during the meeting if she could let us know a couple of months ahead of time each change is going to be implemented so I could get “my internal whine” over and then just roll with the changes (knowing that everyone has a hard time with the changes our company throws out at the last minute, I was lightly throwing myself on the fire for all). She responded by snarking “internal? whine”, indicating I was a regular loud whiner, and staff laughed as I stood up and said I would remember each one of them laughing (jokingly).

Any hoo…. as I sat there over the next few mins I became very angry at her attempt to make fun of me in front of the whole staff. I thought of calling her out on it in front of the staff, which would have been fair, but not necessarily appropriate. After the meeting I waited while 2 others spoke to her, went into her office and told her that it had been offensive, as well as splitting between myself and the staff (I’m a union leader and a person people bring problems to). I have a history here of, yes, complaining at times, but mostly naming clearly and out loud when something is not right. The director has also referred to me in the past as being intimidating (internalized sexism rears its ugly head….. which she didn’t like when I named that either as she sees herself as a feminist) ….. as other women have when they are uncomfortable with direct or passionate speech (I get excited about my field of work).

I’m tired of being judged as any way other than fabulous, unless it is valid and helpful criticism. I am a strong woman, intelligent, funny, and well spoken. I also hold true that you are no more, or no less, than I am.

We talked for 20 minutes about it, she apologized sincerely. I understand we can make inappropriate comments and jokes, and told her as much. All was forgiven….I changed the topic to work on repair of the relationship and we spent another 20 minutes chatting.

I spent the rest of the day with my co-workers looking at me like “are you okay?”, and I’d tell them it’s fine, she and I spoke.
Interesting that they knew it was wrong what she said, but no one stood for me, and named it out loud. Oh yes, that’s right, that’s my role. I want to be a bit mad at them, but they’re just afraid where I am not. I have fears where they do not I’m sure.

It was an uncomfortable day. I ate Dairy Queen for dinner because that’s what I do when I’m upset.

this was about 2 and ¼ years ago….the night it all started….where i stopped taking pictures of everything but my head….the night i shaved my face…lotioned up…watched a tutorial did what i saw…..covered up a little more and went (by my self) to the closest bar ok with gurls like me…i didnt pay a cover fee i bought my first drink but not another one all night….never have i felt so wanted lusted after and wooed beyond flattery……that night was the deciding factor as to her incarceration…i chose to pardon her and set her free….now here i am…

kisses

     chloe colada….now Kaleesia Targaryan…..i love you all

ps….i dont know why i did this…i’m stoned and feeling deep….but so fabulous at the same time…

Country: USA

Hello! I’m Ben. I’m very nearly 24, and I live in Connecticut, not far from NYC. Well…I live here most of the time. My significant other lives in Québec, so I spend a lot of time there as well. I’ve just finished my Master’s in French Studies, and I specialize in all things Québec. I am also bilingual - English/French.

I love history, World of Warcraft, music (AFI, Godsmack, Evanescence, Marie-Mai, Éric Lapointe), French, Harry Potter, Charmed, drag queens, Absolutely Fabulous, anything dark, and generally just talking. I like exchanging stories with people, as I have a great many.

My sister and I used to be penpals, but she’s distracted these days as she’s now a parent. Plus, it’s more fun to get to know new people, and I’d love to make some new friends.

I’m looking for anyone over 18 (though my age and older is ideal), English or French is fine. Let me know if we have common interests or if you just want a new friend! Thanks!

Preferences: 18 or older, though 24-60 is the preferred range for me. Any country is fine, and anyone who speaks English, French or is learning those languages is welcome.

First, fat mira HOLY SHIT YOU ARE FUCKING FABULOUS, and second, im kinda confused with your FT childs, i mean, luna and storm like each other, but what about the rest? any posibilites that we can get a relationship chart? keep up the good work, we love you and remember, if you think you are having a bad time, come to Argentina and experience the real hell xD

Ahaha I remember you dearie! (Esp bc of your very impressionable icon, HAHA) Here is a chart I drew up! Nash doesn’t have anyone for the moment, OR DOES HE? C: 

An anon that told me how they shipped Nash with Reiki made me think a lot about it. <3

Positive Post Time!

With all the drama discourse that’s been flying around, I feel like we need some happy jams going on in here. So excuse me while I blow the Fog Horn of Fabulous People. (I also encourage you all to do this for your own fabulous companions. I love reading warm-hearted happy call-outs!)

1.) @clan-melarn​   -That’s right, I’m calling you out first, buddy. You are one of the most supportive friends I’ve made in a long while and have never failed to be there for me when I’m having hard times, even if you’re struggling too. I adore you and appreciate you! (And your characters are lovely and I am so happy I finally broke the 7th seal and posted at you.)

2.) @the-hitless-swordsman​ - We go from new to old here. I’ve known you for a long time, buddy. And man, you have put up with the best and worst of me. You have and always will be my #1 co-healer. You are the kolto shell to my static barrier. You are the respect to my women. The Selene to my Eos.

3.) @tariev​  - Woo boy. If there was anyone who could pull a positive attitude out in the most dark of times, it’s this guy right here. Tariev is a beautiful fountain of RP and a really energetic guy, even when he’s struggling with his own conflicts and difficulties. You’re a bad-ass, sir.

4.) @deviant-oreo​ and @lolstealing​  - I place these two together because they’re like two peas in a pod. Between the two of them is a huge, everlasting fountain of silly creativity and I freaking LOVE it. Thanks for giving my blue man a reason to keep going. I am so happy I managed to stumble into you two.

5.) @lockerinannis​ / @weepingknight​ - We haven’t role-played together yet. Heck, we don’t even talk, not that it could be remedied if I stopped being such a doofus. But it goes without saying that you inspire me with your posts and your artwork. It is always a happy day when I see your writing/art pop up on my dash. 

6.) @hithren​ - Similar to @weepingknight​, we’ve not yet role-played, nor do we really talk. But your art is absolutely astounding and I live for seeing it pop up on my dash. You have such a beautiful collection of characters and they are a joy to read about!

7.) @ladyrivienne​ - Last but most certainly not least, I can’t thank you enough for prying me out of my shell and engaging me for story times! I am in LOVE with the way that you write and you are incredibly kind and pleasant. An ABSOLUTE ANGEL (with elf ears, of course). Your writing and photo edits give me LIFE.

Of course, there are dozens more people I can call out. Just because you’re not here on this list doesn’t mean you won’t be in the future! I very well might do another one of these tomorrow. Regardless, thank you all for following me.

And take some time to write some nice things about the people you engage every day! (or the ones you’d like to engage!) A little happy thought towards another person goes a LONG way!

Fan Fic Writer’s Appreciation Day

So today is a day to celebrate some of our favorite writers, so I wanted to share a few of my favorite fics and their author’s!! This will probably mostly be Nursey/Dex, but there will probably be a few other ships thrown in :)

@jayzimmboni - Emily writes such amazing fic??? Like I can’t even deal. This fic about Dex and Nursey sneaking into a competing team’s practice and this “lick the object” one are just two of my favorites (honestly I love everything it’s hard to pick). Check out Emily’s writing tag and AO3.

@chillwhiskey - the literal, actual, Queen of nurseydex, no if’s ands or buts about it. Like… Marissa is what I aspire to be honestly. There’s one fic about Nursey and Lardo getting high that I love, and also this one with Dex actually being confident in his sexuality and Nursey being the one is freak out is great too.  Check out Marissa’s writing tag. 

@holsterr - okay, if you want to read the most beautiful nurseydex fic to ever grace this fandom, for the love of God, please read Cocotte’s fic tending a fire. Life changing, I swear. Check out Cocotte’s AO3 and writing tag.

@unchillnursey - okay like, Feliks has the best headcanons about Dex and Nursey, all day every day, but I BURN every time I read this fake dating Holsom fic. It’s pure fluff and I still start blushing idk what to even tell you guys. Check out Feliks’ creations (art!!/fic!!!/etc!!!) and AO3.

@benjji2795 - TOOLS AND BEARDS, TOOLS AND BEARDS, TOOLS AND BEARDS!!!! Okay no but seriously, one night about 4 months ago I was like… hmmm I kinda like the idea of Nursey and Dex? Let me just mosey on over to the tag. And then I read every single one of Benjji’s fics. In one night. The above screamed about Tools and Beards is a Classic ™ . Check out Benjji’s writing tag and AO3.

@acountrygirlsfun - just… Caitlin is one of my favorite people on this website. Like legit, she is just a fabulous person. I LOVE her fic Summer & Snapchat. Read it, you won’t regret it. Check out Caitlin’s writing tag and AO3.

@petals42 - like Caitlin, I already knew Petals from teen wolf, but Petals’ omgcp writing is SO GOOD LIKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Holsom Keep It series as well as Ice Crew AU are my favorite fics to read over and over again. Check out Petals’ AO3 and writing tag.

There are so many talented writers in this fandom, and I don’t have the time to do the above for everyone, but I am going to list as many as I can think of here. You all are fabulous, I enjoy your work immensely, and I hope you know you are appreciated!

reflectingiridescent  asked:

Ok, so this was put into my head by someone a few days ago: Philippa/Beverly (you know, if like, time travel was involved)

I am here for shipping Philippa with all Trek women regardless of time period!

So, in the post about Commodore Paris I described Captain Georgiou as ‘a ray of sunshine and steel’ and I think that fits Beverly equally well. We don’t know a lot about Philippa, but her ready room shelf is bright and colorful and full and that suggests at least an appreciation of art and beauty. I can see her being at least as interested in Beverly’s artistic endeavors as Picard is. They both have fabulous hair, which is always a plus (Philippa/Beverly/Kathryn hair squad amirite?). 

If Beverly gets sent back, Philippa takes her under her wing (after determining she’s not a threat) and at first Bev’s into the adventure, but as the weeks and months go on and it becomes clear she’s stuck, she starts to get depressed. She has a son! And a career! She’s caught in an ethical conundrum – she has too much knowledge to practice in the past, but it’s wrong not to save lives if she can. And she never got to tell Jean-Luc how she really feels. So Philippa opens up about her tragic past, which could well include a lost child and/or lover, and they emote together and fall asleep in each other’s arms. And the next morning Beverly throws herself into her new life. And they start having breakfast together. And then dinner, too. And they fall asleep together a few more times. And after one, Philippa wakes up to Beverly watching her with a thoughtful expression and she worries the doctor is going to spiral again, but instead she spontaneously kisses her. And Philippa is momentarily shocked but then leans into it because finally. 

If Philippa is sent forward, the Enterprise finds her, and they are like W O W, you famously died at the start of the big Klingon war, welcome to the future, hope we don’t have to send you back to die like we did the other one. And she’s amazed at how big and bright the Enterprise is, and how many people there are, and how there is a community of family and non-Starfleet staff. Amazed and pleased, so pleased. And she meets the senior staff and they are all nice, but then Worf comes in and Philippa’s eyes go wide and then she breaks down in tears because that means peace happened! So Beverly does a physical and Deanna does a psych eval, but then she’s dragged into endless debriefings and discussions with Picard and an admiral or two from Command. And that goes on for a few weeks but finally Beverly intervenes to say, hello, this is a person and she needs time to adjust, and breathe, because it’s traumatic to leave your time period and find out everyone you care about thinks you’re dead. So they let Beverly have her, and she and Deanna help her find information about what happened to her friends and family. And then Beverly takes her to the holodeck and they recreate the Shenzou and Philippa breaks down and Beverly scoops her up into a tight embrace. And Beverly opens up about her tragic past and they emote together and Beverly takes her back to her quarters and offers to stay the night if she doesn’t want to be alone and they fall asleep in each other’s arms. And then the reverse of the above happens with Philippa throwing herself into her new life and Beverly waking to a wistful Philippa and a spontaneous kiss finally

Apologies for not posting in a while, as some of you are on Instagram already know, I moved from the Big Apple to the The Big Orange recently and have been a bit distracted by life. Here is a first commission I got after landing in LA from the first AD I ever worked with 7 years back, @sbuzelli (can’t believe it’s been 7 years already!) . Follow her to discover more fabulous and smart editorial illustrations! 

I love working with SooJin, the trust she gives her artists really brings out the best work. Every chance working with her is also an opportunity of reinvention, a playground of experiment. I tried something different with the flaming swan this time and am pretty happy with how it turned out.
