i had so many beautiful colors!

WIND-UP AS’THOLA: “It is unknown who was the creator of this miniturized figure of the famous goldsmith. Many rumors say that it was commissioned by a great fan of hers, whom had seen her passing by in the Ul'dahn streets with her kittens in tow. While nearly identical to her persona, As'htola is perplexed how the artist had found sapphires so close to her eye color.”

Will occasionally:
- Tinker with a piece of metal if given
- Curl up with her tail
- Sit near any source of warmth
- Hug any form of Wind-Up Ryuki, liking to her husband

50/10 the one eye closed, the one eye open, the blush, the smile, have you ever seen anything so beautiful, A+

the soft cool colors, her side profile, I love it, everything about this makes my heart flutter

there will never be a moment where this fuckin badass frame - and entire scene in general - doesn’t give me chills

the hair. the face. need I say more. 

the messy hair makes her look emo 99% of the time. but then there’s that 1% like we see here where she smiles and she transforms from angsty teenager to quirky cute girl who only occasionally says something slightly morbid

adorable pumpkin mom with the strand of hair sticking up. I appreciate it grandly.

*breathes in* i love her so much

Inktober day 29
Liesel Meminger
“Books everywhere! Each wall was armed with overcrowded yet immaculate shelving. It was barely possible to see paintwork. There were all different styles and sizes of lettering on the spines of the black, the red, the gray, the every-colored books. It was one of the most beautiful things Liesel Meminger had ever seen.”

she tells me,
“your eyes, they shine bright like the galaxies;
their many colors dazzle like stars,
and they hold so many secrets, so much beauty.
but my eyes, dark and void of color,
are like the black holes,
sucking the light out of everything,
ugly and selfish.”

and i object.
“black holes?
yes, your eyes are exactly like black holes.
not because they are ugly or selfish,
but because when i look into them,
i can never look away.
i’m in awe of the vastness and complexity they hold.
their gravity is so immense that they catch me off guard
and suck me into their universe –
your universe.
and though the galaxy is large and bright,
the black hole lies at the center.
you are at the center of my heart
and i am hopelessly caught up in yours.”

anonymous asked:

When i was little i had a shirt that said "Brown eyes hypnotize" and that started me off with some great confidence for my brown eyes. Cause brown eyes are fucking gorgeous.

To be honest, I don’t understand why they don’t get more attention. I think all eye colors have the potential to be beautiful (it depends on the shade), but I’ve only met one person who I felt had stunning green eyes (they were straight up EMERALD) and one person with stunning blue eyes (Cliff, duh), whereas I’ve met many people who had gorgeous brown eyes. So I don’t get it. *shrugs*

Plus omg, big, deep brown eyes? They have that puppy dog vibe. So precious!

Coco first rxns

So after reading some of the reactions to the trailer for Disney/Pixar’s Coco I had to take a gander and see for myself what all the fuss was about. So here are my initial rxns. 

 Like many Mexicans, I appreciate that a major film company has elected to create a feature film based on a Mexican holiday. Our culture is beautiful and full of color so it does lend itself to a visual medium such as an animated film.

Yes, I do see many similarities with The Book of Life but given that both films take El Día de los Muertos as a backdrop it isn’t all that surprising. But I really  can’t say that it is a direct copy of Gutierrez’s film without seeing the complete Coco film, I will reserve judgment until Coco releases.

What I do find tedious about Coco, and this applies to most animated films with a Mexican character/setting, is that it will most likely be set in central or northern Mexico and will center around the charro motif. Mexico is a very diverse nation with different traditions and it is a shame that many films fall back on the caricature of Mexican culture (large brim hats, charro costumes, guitars, cacti, serene pueblos with the requisite fountain in the town center, etc.). And from watching the trailer, Coco uses the same old imagery and isn’t presenting anything new or exciting. 

How I long to see a film highlighting the beauty and richness of Southern Mexico. You want color, well bring on the jarochos, the yucatecos, the chiapanecos. 

Instead of a guitar toting character how about a character with a flauta or an atabal, hell even un acordeon. If you are dead set on your string instrument how about un violín or un bandolon, or un moskito. Not all Mexicans play, or even like, the guitar. And certainly not all Mexicans are charros/rancheros.

Sky Colors [Matt Murdock Imagine]

Warnings: none

Imagine type: Fluff

Pairings: Matt Murdock x reader

Prompt: You and Matt are best friends and you want to use your mutation to show him something.

A/N: This is not really x-men but I just had this idea on my mind and I love Matt Murdock sm, so yeah. Hope you like it.


You waited for him in the bench you both had sat down so many times before to just talk for hours with no end.  It was a nice spot in the park, with a beautiful view of a lake. The weather was great today, the limpid sky above contrasted beautifully with the autumn colors of the trees.

Relationship Status: Single

Favorite Color: Yesterday I posted a gifset of Jake Gyllenhaal saying this question stressed him out because there are so many colors. I stand by this as my answer, but today I am also really feeling very deep blue. 

Lipstick or Chapstick: Chapstick. I like lipstick in theory but am too cheap and lazy to buy it or apply it? 

Last Song I Listened To: Wawa by the Ocean by Mary Lattimore

Last Movie I Watched: Beauty and the Beast. It was okay. I don’t know if it really needed to exist, though? 

Top 3 TV Shows: Oh god, ever? Really? Jeez. Umm. The shows that had the biggest impact on me were probably Lost, Battlestar Galactica, and Peep Show. Shout out to my three currently-airing faves, though: Bojack Horseman, The Leftovers, Veep.

Top 3 Characters: How dare you. I can’t actually do this without a lot of time and thought, so I’m just going to give you my three favorite garbage men on television: Pete Campbell (Mad Men), Benjamin Linus (Lost), and Gaius Baltar (Battlestar Galactica). They are the worst and the best. 

Top 3 Ships: Oh man, I don’t know? I don’t really ship anyone. I ship Martha (The Americans) and happiness, Bojack Horseman (Bojack Horseman) and self-acceptance, and Benjamin Linus (Lost) and elaborate, self-justified lying. 

Books I’m Currently Reading: Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett. It’s delightful, as Terry Pratchett always is.

Found a shop that had tons of records in the basement. These are only 3 aisles. There are more. I’ve never seen so many records in one shop… if you have a free few days, you might be able to get through half of the shop, but they are all unsorted so it may prove a challenge to find specific items.

This shop is located in Brooklyn, NY @ Manhattan Ave and the name of the shop is called “The Thing”. In here you will find clothes, comic books, books, possible antiques, silverware and vinyl records.

Beauty and the Beast....

Was poppin! I laughed, I cried, I ate popcorn. It was so reminiscent of my childhood.

I loved how they had people of color in the movie. Although many were fair skinned, some were not.

No lie I liked the beast better as a beast, oddly. I’ve thought that since I was a child. Kinda like Shrek.

The message, although fairy tailed in nature, is relative: love rooted in forgiveness is the only thing that will bring beauty out of the beast that resides in each and every one of us. I don’t necessarily mean love from a romantic relationship either. Love in general.

It was the first time in years that I went to the movies….and went sober.
mary kate’s lucaya fic rec

so i read a ton of fanfic and i know how awesome it feels to find an amazing fic that makes you feel all warm in your chest. i thought the best way  to give back was to show you some of the ones that I found and love to read and reread. these are 8 of my many favorites. my commentary is in italics. 

you on my horizon by honeyspeaches

It takes her two decades, two continents, and a lot of near-misses to figure it out, but it’s true that good things come to those who wait. au.

this fic is so beautiful I wish i could read it for the first time all over again

the draw of color by zaybabineauxs

‘maya had been seeing the world in black and white her whole life now, for twenty years; which was late, considering the fact that the average age you found your soulmate was sixteen. her best friend, riley, also lived in a world of black and white. that was, until she met lucas.’ soulmate au.

this is one angsty fic and truly amazing. I cried when I read it. zaya and rilaya friendships written beautifully.

can a play still go on if the curtain falls and the audience has gone home? (please circle your answer) by xcalibra

‘They’re not together, but everyone knows they might as well be. Or, the progression of a non-relationship between Lucas and Maya.’

I’ve read this fic probably 12 times and every time I find new things to love about it. it really speaks for itself.

I was a billion little pieces (until you pulled me into focus) by bluesey

The worst part is that her mother told her he’s probably her soulmate. That’s what happens when you have one, she said, they come to you in dreams. soulmates au.

beautiful. haunting. she really gets into Maya’s head and the end result is amazing.

lovefool by amirmitchell

the weather is so nice today. i walked to the book store in the rain and enjoyed looking at all the beautiful textures and colors. i met a girl named susan, she was so intriguing, we had a 20 minute conversation about books. people are really interesting, it makes me sad that i tend to avoid conversation with strangers even though the best conversations i ever have are with them. days like this make me realize i shouldn’t be afraid of people because many of them make me feel lighter than i really am and i’ve been feeling so heavy. i feel okay now!

Royai Alphabet Series: B

So I really enjoyed writing this one, if only because I got to write a character that I’ve never written before. There are so many parallels between Lan Fan and Riza that it wounds me, and I need like 500 more fics about these two incredible and protective women.


B is for Bride


The gardens were quite possibly the most beautiful and enchanting part of the Royal Palace. Riza found that she naturally gravitated to the colorful and lush gardens during the few moments that she had some time to herself. If she was not standing in Roy’s shadow or at his side while they met with some of the higher members of the court, princes and princess of other clans, and others that were highly esteemed, then she found herself wrapped up in the any sort of adventures that Alphonse or May could conjure for them.

Both the princess and younger Elric were ecstatic to have them around and gave them an enthusiastic and incredible view of the city, all the while somehow managing to give Roy and Riza much needed personal space and time together. How they managed to do that in such a large city was beyond her, but she was quite grateful for it nonetheless. She and Roy hadn’t had many opportunities to do such things back in Amestris.

Still, Riza was someone that quite liked time to herself. It gave her a chance to recuperate and gather her thoughts. This trip had certainly put a lot of thoughts in her mind that she’d actively avoided thinking about. She didn’t have the skill to sort through everything on her mind while in the presence of other people, not like Roy, and so she needed quiet times where she could recharge and think about everything.

A trip through the gardens gave her the perfect opportunity to do so. While Roy was having a meeting with the emperor and the highest members of the court, Riza was given a chance to have some alone time. Sure, it had disgruntled her at first, not being able to stand at his side and guard his back, but Roy had given her a reassuring look that everything would be fine, wiggling his gloved fingers at her. Besides, if Riza thought she had been put out by not being allowed into the room with Roy, it was nothing compared to the silent stormy look on Lan Fan’s face. She was going to be married to the man in a day’s time, but she still considered herself her bodyguard.

Poor girl, Riza mused with a smile on her face as she looked down at the koi fish in a small, man-made pond. It wasn’t easy loving a man that you had promised to protect with your life.

Cinderbug- Miraculous Cinderella AU 

WHOA- I didn’t expect that last post to get so many notes! So many I had the overwhelming urge to make a quick finished version. The post is directly referenced from Disney’s Cinderella and the limited color palette was chosen to make things go alot faster

Thanks everyone !

Y'all are NOT about to sit here and shame me because I’m speaking the truth about the privilege that lightskin girls face over darkskin girls. No I’m not about to sit here and feel bad when I was literally called a dog and a monkey and other stuff my whole life just for the color of my skin. When I’ve had even family members discourage me and tell me I’m not pretty enough to model (which I wanted to pursue for so long but never did because I really believed I wasn’t pretty enough), when I’ve literally been told that I would never be loved or good enough for anyone. When I’ve faced slander from ALL black people. When so many lightskin girls think they’re above and more beautiful than darkskin girls and cringe at the idea of even being compared to one. I don’t fucking care if you feel like I’m mean, honestly my entire life I’ve been told I’m below lightskin girls because I’m darkskin, I’m OVER it.

Jack Maynard Imagine

A/N:: Here is another proposal imagine I thought up. I have random thoughts and so I put them into imagine form for you guys. I hope you like it! You can request an imagine if you would like!


Jack Maynard Proposal Imagine

You were at your best friend’s wedding reception. It was beautiful with the lights in the barn. Hung up on the rafters. The color scheme was light pink and gold sparkles. It was like living in a fairy tale. Because you both were a part of the Youtube community, you had invited many Youtubers. Including the Buttercream squad. Jack Maynard was your boyfriend of three years. You two were truly in love. It made your heart flutter when he would do the smallest of things. Like make a bath for you after a long day of practicing dance and ice skating. Or make you guys a dinner that would sometimes end up with you ordering take out for he forgot the food in the oven. He was such a great boyfriend. Trying his hardest to make this relationship your last.

You see, you had a bad relationship before Jack. He was physically abusive plus he was emotionally abusive. Once you guys broke up, (You broke up with him with the help of your best friend and a family member.) you vowed to never let your guard down, to never love so fast. You were emotionally cut off. But then you met Jack. He became one of your best friends. He tried his hardest to get you to open up. It took you awhile, but once you finally did you knew that you were in love with Jack and that Jack loved you. He cried when you opened up completely to him. He made you feel so loved. You let you know just how beautiful you are and how much he loved you every chance he got.

It was time for the bouquet toss. All the girls gathered around including you. All the girls really did want the bouquet, for it was so beautiful, “Okay girls, ready?!” Your best friend shouted excitedly. To which a scream of yes’s came. She was about to through the bouquet but then she didn’t. She turned around and began to walk towards you.

Jack’s POV

It was all planned. (Y/BFF/N) was going to hand (Y/N) the bouquet. Then she would hopefully turn around to see me. I was slowly walking up to where she was in the crowd.

“What are you doing, (Y/BFF/N)?” (Y/N) asked with confusion. She takes the bouquet.

“Turn around.” Her best friend says, to which she complies.

“(Y/N), my love.” I take her hand and kiss it.

“Jack, what is going on?” She starts to worry a little and gets that anxious look.

“Oh darling. My beautiful girlfriend. There is no need to worry. This is my surprise to you. I love you so much. You mean everything to me. I can’t go a day without you. These past few years have been the best years of my life. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I knew when you opened up to me. I was going to spend the rest of my life with you. And I would be so happy to do so.” I get down on one knee and pull out the custom made ring I had gotten for this special moment. (Y/N)’s Hand flew to her mouth and the crowd gasps. “(Y/N) (Y/M/N) (Y/L/N), will you marry me?” She nods really fast and whispers “Yes Jack! Yes!” I slip the ring onto her finger and kiss her hand before standing up and wrapping my arms around her waist. Then I give her one of the most passionate, loving kisses. She said yes! The crowd claps and cheers and I am just so happy to have her as my fiancé now.
