i had to include the last bit

If piece of shit america destroys net neutrality i cannot live, internet is my only way to access my education since my school is online and the internet is the only place i will ever contact most people on, including for work, because guess what, i have a condition that makes me so anxious in public that i have panic attacks whenever i’m in an even somewhat crowded area, you know, like, anywhere that’s not lost in the middle of a field.

If net neutrality dies, i will die, i will die after spending the last bits of my life in a psychiatric hospital because i will be forced to attempt to heal enough so that i can be legally sent outside with no degree because i couldn’t access the education i had paid for.

America needs to grow out of fucking kindergarten and care about the people it destroys: The people outside, but also their people they are already stepping on and rubbing in the dust.

The world is dominated by America, and America is dominated by fucking morons

When you says she's trying hard to meet fans this era do you know if she means fans she hasn't met only or does that include fans she has met already too?

that’s fans she hasnt met!!! there were lots of people last night that i had spoken to who said they had never given attention by taylor or taylor nation until they got their DMs. im pretty sure i was actually the only person at my session who had already met her before. she’s trying her best yall, she really is but……i dont know if im reaching with this or not (like this may be a bit of an over exaggeration) but she really sees a lot of her fans as friends and some she actually misses and wants to see sometimes? she grows attached like a normal human being that doesnt just see fans as people who pay her. like she’ll see people more than once but that doesnt always mean someone else doesnt have the opportunity to meet her too because she’ll always make sure that she gets to hug someone for the first time. 

Azriel + Elain. I ship it. Hear me out (ACOWAR spoilers).

I have a theory that Azriel and Elain are ultimately going to end up together. I hated myself for it at first because I was kind of pulling for Lucien (poor Lucien), but now that I’ve put together the below evidence, I am 100% on board. 

We all know that SJM is the queen of foreshadowing. She plants hints books in advance, and we don’t realize it was foreshadowing until after the truth has been revealed and you’re like duh this was SO OBVIOUS BECAUSE SHE BASICALLY TOLD US WITHOUT TELLING US (a few examples: Feyre being Rhys’ mate, Rowan being Aelin’s).

So, Azriel and Elain. Yes, I know Elain has a mate. Yes, I know that at the end of ACOWAR, all signs were pointing towards Elain giving him a chance. But I think that’s all it’s going to be. A chance. 

Now let’s dig into the evidence. After finishing ACOWAR, I (obviously) had to re-read the whole series, now that I knew how it all turned out. 

In ACOMAF, I came across the following passage on p. 487:

Nesta. I painted flames for her. She was always angry, always burning. I think that she and Amren would be fast friends. I think she would like Velaris, despite herself. And I think Elain - Elain would like it, too. Though she’d probably cling to Azriel, just to have some peace and quiet. I smiled at the thought - at how handsome they would be together. If the warrior ever stopped quietly loving Mor.

After having read ACOWAR, we know that Nesta and Amren became fast friends. We know that despite herself, she definitely likes Velaris. And we know that Elain clings to Azriel - that he was gentle with her, and kind. All of that passage came true. What struck me weirdly about it was that next sentence - I smiled at the thought - at how handsome they would be together. If the warrior ever stopped quietly loving Mor. Knowing what we know now about Mor, I think it’s safe to assume that in the near future, Mor will tell Azriel the truth. And when that happens…he’ll (hopefully) eventually open up his heart to someone else.

Once those sentences had grabbed my attention, when I was re-reading ACOWAR, all of the Azriel/Elain scenes just…made sense. He’s kind to her. Gentle. He sits with her when she’s in the garden. He walks with her arm wrapped around his. He carries her when she’s too weak to walk herself. There’s a fair amount of evidence that I could pull together, but to spare you from this post being absurdly long, I’m just asking you to trust me on the little moments.

Two more scenes that I do want to dissect, however. The first one being when Rhys explains how you can reject a mating bond - it’s a long passage, so I’m only going to include the highlights (p.257):

“You said your mother and father were wrong for each other; Tamlin said his own parents were wrong for each other….so it can’t be a perfect system of matching. What if -” I jerked my chin toward the window, to my sister and the shadowsinger in the garden - “that is what she needs? Is there no free will? What if Lucien wishes the union but she doesn’t?”

….

“Sometimes, the bond is nothing more than some…preordained guesswork at who will provide the strongest offspring. At its basest level, it’s perhaps only that….Only years later will they realize that perhaps the pairing was not ideal in spirit.”

Rhys goes on to explain how you can reject the bond but it can drive the male mad. At this point, my brain was screaming !!!!!!!!! at me. 1) because SJM is the queen of foreshadowing and if she included this discussion, she included it for a reason and 2) Feyre literally is like ummmm hi, I think Azriel could be a better match.

Finally, the last piece of evidence I will include, is the scene where Azriel hands Elain truth-teller. This scene is so important, so pivotal, that is even included in the A Court of Thorns and Roses coloring book. If you own the coloring book, you know that the scenes in there have huge significance to the story. Again this scene is a bit long to include, but highlights below, after he gently presses her hand into the hilt of the legendary blade (p.610):

“Cassian gawked at Azriel, and I wondered how often Azriel had lent out that blade - 

Never, Rhys said from where he finished buckling on his own weapons against the side of the wagon. I have never once seen Azriel let another person touch that knife

Elain looked up at Azriel, their eyes meeting, his hand still lingering on the hilt of the blade. I saw the painting in the mind: the lovely fawn, blooming spring vibrant behind her. Standing before Death, shadows and terrors lurking over his shoulder. Light and dark, the space between their bodies a blend of the two. The only bridge of connection…that knife.”

I don’t think there’s much to say other than OH MY GOD THAT PASSAGE I SHIP IT.

IN CONCLUSION (I’m sorry this post was so long but I needed to include evidence to back up this kind of crazy theory), I think that Elain and/or Lucien will end up rejecting the bond. If I had to make a really crazy guess, I’m going to predict that Lucien ends up being Helion’s heir (and therefore moving to his court), and because he is decent, he realizes that Elain will want to stay with her sister’s in the Night Court. Because he recognizes that maybe they aren’t a true match in spirit, he will let her go. And then boom, that leaves the door open for Azriel + Elain. The end.

Let me know your thoughts!!

Hello, Adventurers! It’s been awhile, and you may have noticed some changes, including the title of this comic. Yes, the subtext has become text, and I’ve decided to move away from the strip-form to a longer, memoirish format - for now anyway, we’ll see how long this experiment lasts! (It took an annoyingly long time to put this particular comic together, so it might not be long…) And part of the shift includes giving my comic project the name I had saved for my half-written memoir.

I’m still talking about asexuality, still making jokes about my hopeless romanticism, still drawing anthropomorphic representations of my virginity - just with a monochromatic color scheme and a bit more truth.

I hope those of you who have enjoyed my comics so far will still like what’s to come for YOU’LL NEVER SEE ME NAKED.

Since I keep seeing people mentioning this, I thought I’d throw out my two cents on the matter.

When Roy buys that car full of flowers, he calls Riza and says he got drunk and bought them. The thing is, unlike what many others seem to think, I am pretty sure he was not drunk at all. That was just the cover.

Look at the entire scene. He hadn’t been to a bar, he was getting information relayed to him by one of his sisters while sitting in his car. Then he gets more information from the woman selling the flowers and he’s very serious about it. If he were drunk, I don’t think he’d be able to absorb all that info very well. He wouldn’t do that. The info his sister gave him was too important for him to listen to while drunk. Roy is too smart for that.

And later, he buys all the flowers as thanks for the info, but then realized he has nothing to do with them. That’s the absent minded, dorky Roy showing through. He was too concerned about getting information and making sure the woman got payed for her troubles that he didn’t stop to think ahead. Then again, maybe that was also part of the gimmick. He bought the flowers on purpose so he could then act like he was drunk and no one would be the wiser.

Either way, he then calls Riza and pretends to be drunk. That’s his excuse. His cover for calling her and buying the flowers. Anyone that’s watching would have no reason to suspect otherwise and would probably ignore him.

I also like to think it was his reason to be able to see her. They hadn’t seen each other for a while and he missed her. He hoped she would accept his offer of flowers so he would have an excuse to go to her place and talk for a bit. He hadn’t planned on her refusing to see him because of serious problems on her end. That was a surprise, and you could see he was definitely surprised and concerned.

Anyway, the point is, Roy was not drunk during that scene, it was a cover for anyone that might have been watching or listening. Remember, Roy is a very good actor.

Newt has a big crush on Graves pass it on

Newton Artemis Fido Scamander most certainly did not have a crush on one Percival Graves, the Director of Magical Security - until he did, that is.

Newt hadn’t had a crush on anyone for years, in fact, until a good three months after the Grindelwald incident. A good three months after they found Graves. Newt had been brought in to consult on a trafficking ring that broke out during the chaos of cleaning up Grindelwald’s mess and MACUSA had instantly asked for his return. He had come back, knowing he’d probably end up meeting the man behind the face that Grindelwald had stolen -

Only to find out he was on sick leave, re-cooperating from the trauma of being held prisoner. What trauma specifically, be it psychological or physically, no one could say. Nor could they say how long he’d be gone.

So imagine Newt’s surprise when he’s knee deep in a raid - spells flying, creatures howling from their cages and panicking, lashing out through the bars and suddenly, he appears. He spots Graves entering the chamber from across the chaos and for a heart stopping second, Newt can’t move. His face is so familiar, and every moment he blinks, he can see Grindelwald’s exasperated expression as he sentenced him to death. But every time he opens his eyes, he see Percival Graves. And while the face is the same, nothing else is.

Grindelwald had moved like a peacock, strutting his power and the richness of Graves’ body like a man flaunting a pricey car. Graves moved like a panther; smooth, steadfast, assured of his capabilities but also cautious enough to know that didn’t ensure a painless fight. His eyes were deep and focused. He scanned the chaos at hand with a sheer, calm calculation that set Newt at ease. 

And when he announced his entrance finally to the group at large, it was not flashy or wasteful. He bound and gagged three criminals before the rest even realized he was attacking them at all. 

He attacked not just for himself, but for his flock. He cast spells that assisted those aurors that were struggling the most first - the outnumbered or exhausted or wounded. And once assured of their safety, then moved onto the rest. He wasn’t flashy. He didn’t try to eliminate everyone on his own, although Newt had a small inkling that he could. Instead, he worked with his aurors. He attacked just as much as he defended, moving slow and precisely. It wasn’t a race, after all. The safety of his team was most important.

And so while it was a sluggish fight, it was predominantly a success, with minimal injuries occurring after the fact.

“Well done,” he said, his voice rough like whiskey and warming Newt’s chest just the same. Newt watched as he clapped a strong hand onto Abernathy’s shoulder and squeezed, encouraging, before turning to the room at large. “Everyone, begin transporting these men to headquarters. We’ve a long night of paperwork ahead of us.”

“Yes!”

“Of course, sir!”

“Right away!”

And then Graves turned to look at him.

Mr. Scamander, yes? I was informed you were assisting with this case. Are you alright?” Graves asked, approaching him all the while, and Newt couldn’t help but feel pinned beneath the wolfish focus of those eyes. He swallowed, about the speak, when Graves’ gaze slid suddenly over Newt’s shoulder. 

He received no more notice than that. Suddenly, Graves was in front of him, shoving him aside. Newt stumbled into a nearby table, off balance, then whirled to take in what had set Graves off. 

A nundu stood where Newt had once stood, blood on it’s claws. Were it not for the cruel muzzle the criminals had placed upon the creature’s snout, Graves would probably have been struck dead by the creature’s poisons. Newt, too. 

Graves had managed to back away somewhat, but Newt could see where the nundu had struck him - sleeve torn and muddled red at the forearm. Graves had both his hands out, both making him seem large while also giving the nundu sight of both his hands and what they were doing. 

Newt rose to his feet quickly, mouth open to direct Graves, when the man then turned his open palms to him and shook his head - shushing him with his eyes. It was then he realized the man must have already warned back his aurors, too, because they were frozen in a semi-ring around him, wands drawn but frozen as they watched.

The nundu was growling, it’s huge throat swollen in angry and its thorny mane bristling. Newt felt his heart constrict, torn between directing Graves regardless of the man’s request for silence and telling him not to harm the nundu.

But neither predator attacked, nor seemed to attend to - both just staring each other down. It was then, Newt realized, that Graves was gently easing a wandless spell through the air between them. It sunk into the creature gradually, easing it into a calm stupor incrementally instead of all at once lest the spell panic the beast. Newt watched, wide-eyed, as the director calmly eased the creature to the ground - falling into a kneel in time with the moment that the creature laid down, keeping eye contact until it was finally fully slack, eyes closed, restful and at peace. 

“Sir, that was amazing,” one of the aurors whispered, awed. 

“Yes it was,” Newt whispered.

Graves leaned forward, hands searching out the crevices of the muzzle, frowning as though displeased as Newt approached. The man looked up at him once before leaning back on his haunches and turning his attention back to the beast.

“My apologies, Mr. Scamander. I am well aware of your expertise, but I did not think warning you would give you enough time to react - I hope I did not hurt you.”

“N-no, I’m quite alright. You… Thank you for not harming him. Another man might have killed him without another thought if they were staring down a nundu.”

“It’s not the creature’s fault he’s here. A spell must have shattered the door to his cage. Spooked him. We got too close and he was acting on instinct. He didn’t advance any further after the initial swipe - he didn’t want to hurt anyone,” Graves said, eyes on the creature as he spoke. “Can hardly fault him for trying to protect himself. Far from home, surrounded by hostile people and then exposed to the fight that just happened. And then he was muzzled. I don’t strike a man if I have a knife and he doesn’t. Goes the same for creatures. Just doesn’t seem right.”

Newt blinked, stock-still in the face of the last words he had expected to hear.

“I wish we could loosen this,” Graves said, fingers trailing over the places where the muzzle bit cruelly into the creature’s jaws, “But until he’s somewhere more managable, I don’t think that’s an option - for all of our sake’s, his included. I apologize though, Mr. Scamander. I know you’re likely not comfortable with that.”

Newt jerked, shook himself of his daze and said, “N-No, not at all. You’re right, it’s best for all of us, the nundu included, until I can get him somewhere safe.”

And when Graves rose to his feet, they were suddenly so close. Newt felt his breath hitch. He watched as Graves ran a hand over his wound, sewing the ragged mess shut, before looking ever so slightly up to look at Newt.

“Are you sure you’re alright, Mr. Scamander?” Graves asked. “You look a little shell shocked.”

Newt nodded quickly, too quickly to be smooth.

“Good. We should start noting and moving these creatures somewhere safe, then. I’d be happy to lend you a hand, if you need the assistance,” Graves said, clapping Newt on the back as he had done the aurors. “The faster we get them somewhere more like home, the better - right?”

And when Graves smiled at him, Newt felt his breath catch in his lungs. Oh no, he thought. He’s perfect.

3 acts of malicious compliance in one project rewarded with 4 days of leave fully paid.

This is quite long sorry but I feel it needs the back story to understand the whole thing.

tl;dr - General manager makes requests, I try to get him to see the downsides. He insists, I comply and get a nice few days off.

I used to work for a mining company as a Geologist. I left and a few years later was employed by them again but in a very different role dealing mostly with compliance based stuff.

We had a new project coming up which meant a lot of data would be coming in daily and at some point we would be required to process all that data. The data was being logged into an excel spreadsheet which was probably the quickest and easiest way to do it for the data we needed to capture. It did however introduce a larger margin of human error. The benefit was that errors could be checked later in the corporate office rather than taking up time in the field when people were already working 12 hour shifts and we were paying contractors by the hour. In addition to this they updated my contract to a fieldwork based employee rather than office based, this allowed them to send me out into the field for several weeks at a time without any change in pay. It also had a few other conditions which come into play later.

An Announcement and a Little Concern

Hello all! I’m sorry to put drama on your dashboards, but yesterday some information was brought to me and I need to be entirely clear and open about some things in order to protect myself, and hopefully to protect you guys too.

I have only one character in the game, Syrena Kalihd, and that will never change.

I am not Selene Kalihd (also known as @jaybartram / @princess-zeldaluna / Zelda Luna), and I have no ties whatsoever to this person. They are a pathological liar who lies and manipulates to knowingly and purposefully take character appearances and names, and then attempts to paint themselves as an innocent and unwitting party to gain sympathy. After the recent occurrence of someone making a duplicate of a character named Empress Quistis and using the false blog to slander that person’s name by sending hateful messages, I am more than a little wary of people taking other people’s character names and faces, and I feel I need to make it 100% clear that they are someone who made a willful decision to copy me, and they are not in any way an alt or secondary character of mine.

I am not someone who feels that similarities in character appearance warrant upset; the ffxiv character creator is fairly limited, and coincidental similarities or even duplicates are to be expected. But an active attempt to copy my character’s appearance and name is something that I’m uncomfortable with, and I am made even more uncomfortable by the fact that when questioned, Zelda claimed she doesn’t know me/has never seen me/did not copy me, despite that all of this is clearly untrue.

I will be presenting evidence; not because I am upset at the copying, but because I am upset at the lying, double dealing, and manipulation this person has exhibited, and I need to prove that this is not a coincidental similarity.

Buckle in guys, this is gonna be a bit of a ride.

Yuzuru Hanyu: CoR Post-FP Interview and Press Con

//Video credit pino @ DM

(Unfortunately I was not able to cut just the interview, so bear with the full 23mins of this special, It has great footage anyway! I may sub the rest of it one day…)

Going into the season, this was a competition where you challenged your limits. What did you think about it?

I went in for the challenge but results-wise, I made mistakes so I think that was my own weakness.

You successfully landed your first 4Lz in competition that the world has been looking forward to, and it received positive GOE. How do you feel about it?

It wasn’t a perfect jump so I think it can be much better. Also, that I couldn’t include the loop jump that I’ve accumulated over the last season in neither the free skate nor the short is, after all, a pity. Well, of course there is the fact that I was concentrating on the lutz but I still think that I lack quite a bit of practice.

Well I’ve always been watching Hanyu, so let me say something optimistic. You may have had some failures today, but, you challenged it. All of that will become your strength in your fight towards the Olympics, that’s what I believe.

Yes that’s true. Well, I think all I can do is improve one step by one step so well, um…yes um, about the past… I have no intention to compare (this with it) so…In any case, I do feel like I have been giving everything I have, more than usual, so from here on out, I want to clear each (competition) one by one as I go into the second half of the season.

And so, (you said that) you yourself experienced Seimei in a new way, the program that only you, Hanyu, can skate. How was it?

No, there’s still a lot more, a lot more to it. Definitely, the content is nowhere near what I originally wanted to do so in that sense I do still feel a lot of regret, and that I still have a ways to go. From here on I would like to work harder as I go forward.

Um, please let me ask one more question. This Olympic season, everyone has expectations for this but I think the one who has the highest expectations is you yourself. How do you plan to continue fighting as you go on, looking at this result?

Yes, I am frustrated, and, well to be frank, there are both frustrations and rewards to be taken away from this. Well, I think that I still can grow even more from this point onward and if I can continue to work even more on these lessons in practice (it would be good).

It kind of looks like you are having a tough time but you said challenging things is fun, and I think that’s a wonderful thing.

Ah yes, it’s sports after all, so I want to continue to have fun whilst I skate.

I love Matsuoka’s interviews :)

====== (Sorry it’s so long, press con is short so I included it) ======

For today’s performance, I am satisfied with it, just a little. As expected, not being able to fully rotate the loop, or enter the combination jump properly…things like that added up one by one and resulted in this 3 point difference. Of course, I have my frustrations about the short and well…well, everything, everything needs more practice - that thought was renewed in me. And at the same time, um…in the end, in skating, every aspect is important so I felt (again) that doing every single aspect properly is really something important. -cut- Be it the mental element of it or the stamina required, I think this is a free program where stuff like that becomes extremely important so, as I improve each and every element, I would like to perfect this program.

Congrats Yuzu on finishing with the best first GP result you’ve achieved in awhile! (Japanese TV keeps emphasizing that he has not won his first GP in 2 years hahaha) Also, looking forward to Notte stellata again!

After Theo and Mason found Aaron it was already too late because Aaron had already formed with Quinn, his other half.

The rest of us were waiting at the clinic for the two to show up, including Stiles and Derek.

My phone was ringing and I looked down to see Theo calling, “It’s Theo” I informed, “Okay, put him on speaker” Stiles stated and I nodded answering the call.

“Theo what’s up?” I question looking around the room, “We are on our way, Mason is hurt” Theo informed.

“Well, if you had let me go with you and Mason, then you would’ve known to be more careful and I’m talking about you not Mason” I nagged.

“Thank you (Y/N)! He wouldn’t listen to me when I said not to fight him” Mason spoke, “Well gee, I’m sorry that I want to protect you” Theo objected.

“Wow, you actually care?” Stiles sassed, Theo groaned, “Shut up Stiles”.

“Anyway I’ll be there in five minutes” Theo added. “Okay, see you in five” and I hung up.

Five minutes later, Theo and Mason arrive. 

Theo came up and hugged me, “Is that my jacket?” he questioned.

“Yes” I answered and Theo gave me a questioning look.

“What? You smell good” I commented.

“Keep it, it looks good on you” Theo whispered and I blushed then I hit him on the back of his head.

“Ow! What the hell?” Theo exclaimed, “I was worried about you and Mason, don’t do that next time” I scolded.

I’m stressed, you stress me out Theo Raeken” I added, “You know, they say sex is good for that” Theo commented.

I glared at him, “Fuck you”.

“You already did sweetheart, remember last night” he winks.

I scoffed, “Whatever, after that you fell asleep and you were talking in your sleep last night and you don’t understand how much I wanted to murder you”
.

“It’s kinda cute when you two argue” Lydia interrupted, “Wait, am I missing something here?” Stiles questioned confused.

Theo and I looked at each other but Liam spoke up, “They’re together, it’s kind of gross seeing them all lovey dovey, especially seeing Theo like that”.

“You guys are together together?” Stiles asked, “You got that right” Theo answered grabbing my hand.

“Was I really gone that long” Stiles asked himself.

So um, I went on the Voltron website and

So they have character descriptions for p much everyone. Including Shiro

All the times Ritsu gets rekt in the manga

Ritsu is an above-average esper, but he’s still weaker than the other 3 main esper boys (and the super 5 + touichirou). This, combined with his brave, somewhat reckless character, lack of self preservation (when he deems other things/people more important, like his brother or freedom), and smart mouth means he gets the sh*t beaten out of him quite often,, so I made this compilation for my own reference (God I love this kid so much).

My Beauty & The Beast Review (spoilers!)

I know there’s been hundreds of these done before, but I just wanted to share my opinion on the highlights and lowlights of the new 2017 live action film (WHICH I ABSOLUTELY LOVED AND WILL BE SEEING A SECOND TIME), upon looking at all the comments and criticisms I’ve seen either through youtube videos, critics, and scrolling through tumblr. 

Cons/scenes that confused me:

- The opening number was not as magical as it could have been. I can’t describe exactly what–it just wasn’t as impactful as a number as the original
- The library scene was not as much as a big reveal. It felt so casual and rushed into–but I really liked how it was such a surprise in the original version
- I feel like Emma Watson could have put more emotion into her singing. I mean of course she can’t top Paige O’Hara but still, I feel like sometimes her soul wasn’t as into it (probably tho because she’s not a musical actress)
- Why the townspeople ganged up on Belle to ruin her laundry–is teaching a girl to read considered that big of a sin??? seems like a bit of a stretch
- I really wanted the proposal scene to happen where Gaston gets rejected, maybe not entirely the same, but just simply something that would outrage Belle more than the conversation she had in this version
- “Gaston, you are positively primeval” was not included
- “No one says no to Gaston!” was not included
- “Every last inch of me’s covered in hair” was not included
- The way Emma Thompson sang BATB wasn’t as great as it should’ve been. A lot of times she sang it slower than the actual tempo to the point where I felt like she had to catch up on the song and it sounded off. I appreciate her trying to sound different from the original but it was getting a bit excessive
- No one questioning why Belle was wearing a ballgown upon being missing for days and being held captive by a beast
- Why Belle called Gaston a monster??? I mean, we as an audience know why, but Belle had no previous knowledge of the monstrous things Gaston had done and the only thing he’d done to her is act like a bigot and vain
- Was I the only one who thought Beast didn’t look hot?? i mean, i liked the gentle vibe he kinda had in the original, but in this version, he’s too much of a hybrid amongst human and beast which kinda creeped me out at times
- Mrs. Potts’ & Chip’s animation was a bit odd to me–despite the Prince wanting the most extravagant of items–their design wasn’t that beautiful or appealing to me
- Belle keeping the rattle that her mom kissed when she had the plague is dangerous, isn’t it?
- The castle crumbling when the last few petals fell from the rose made no sense–like it’s not like the castle totally fell apart when the last petal fell
- Though the transformation scene was wonderful, I had wished Adam or Belle had said something to make the silence less awkward and make the moment more romantic
- The ending scene was nice with the finale song, but I feel like they should’ve done something that tied up the film, I was looking forward to a finale kiss between Belle and Prince Adam but they just danced and it just kinda ended??? there was no impact there

Pros:

- The close-up shots of Belle when she sings her solo part in ‘Belle’ was done beautifully
- Belle’s reprise and the infamous ‘Sound of Music’ scene was some great cinematography 
- The deeper father-daughter dynamic between Belle and Maurice. They added a lot more depth to this character (kevin kline made him funnier and more endearing :”) )
- Belle’s voice sounding more normal throughout the film compared to the autotuned versions released in trailers & online (i was really going in with low expectations of her singing due to what was previously shown but it sounded fine in the movie???)
- Belle’s “Ugh!!!” after the thought of being Gaston’s wife
- Belle’s costume changes; giving her boots vs. flats, hitching up the side of her skirt so she could run more freely and ride horses, adding pockets to store her books, etc.
- ALL THE PLOT HOLE FIX-UPS (every time they explained something new i was like OHHH THAT MAKES SENSE NOW)
- Having more scenes showing the Beast’s character as well as seeing more of the chemistry with him and Belle
- All the new original songs blew me away. Once again, Alan Menken is a true legend.
- Evermore was so essential and I’m so glad they decided to give Beast a solo song (i always wanted to hear one from him, and it gave me Phantom vibes which was BONUS)
- Character development with LeFou
- All of LeFou’s lines (i cracked up every single time)
- Golden cast. 
- Dan Stevens and his facial expressions, acting through his eyes, how he poured his heart and soul in evermore.
- Luke Evans was literally Gaston brought to life. The voice, the looks, the charm. I also liked how he was a bit darker in this version.
- Josh Gad brilliant once again, I lost it at “It’s never gonna happen ladies”

- Ewan McGregor gave a refreshing retake on Lumiere and his singing was great!
- “The East Wing, or as I like to call it, the ONLY wing” 
- Maurice admiring Lumiere and Cogsworth as the two argued who he was referring to once he left
- DIVERSE CAST
- Interracial couples.
- The song ‘Gaston’ blew me away. It was better than the original.
- Visually stunning scenes throughout.
- Beast saying they should run away together (my heart melted when he said that)
- BE OUR GUEST GAVE ME GOOSEBUMPS. DID NOT DISAPPOINT. (i was really nervous about them messing it up but it gave me the thrills just as the original)
- How this movie really tugged on my heartstrings and I cried 6 times throughout the whole 2 hours.
- Belle singing ‘How Does a Moment Last Forever’ was beautiful
- “Too touristy?” - Beast
- Beast trying to protect his masculinity when he was caught reading a romance
- All the passionate stares between Belle and Beast throughout the film
- EVERMORE.
- The ballroom scene was breathtaking. The ballroom set itself was–dhlsdkfhdsk
- Beast/Prince Adam’s mother being his sun (insert sobbing)
- The mob song was also done better than the original. (OMG BUT LEFOU’S LINE THO–)
- The way the beast screamed “BELLE!” was heart-wrenching
- The transformation scene was powerful, Dan Stevens was beautiful. That kiss tho–right in the feels.
- “Turn back into a clock. Back into a clock.”
- The Finale ver of Beauty and the Beast was lovely, the new lyrics added in were just the perfect finishing touch as well
- BELLE’S WHITE DRESS WAS STUNNING.
- “How would you feel about growing a beard?” *GROWLS* (me: dies)
- LEFOU FINDING HIS SOULMATE + FIRST DISNEY GAY REP.
- Everyone dancing together (instead of everyone just awkwardly watching Belle & Adam dance)

lost thoughts

Originally posted by glorious-soobooty

Title: lost thoughts
Pairing: Kim Minseok/Reader
Genre: Soulmate!AU. You hear your soul mate’s thoughts inside your head since the moment they/you are born.
Summary: The sound of his voice inside her head brings a smile to her face or a frown to her features. If only Minseok wasn’t so teasing then things would be a little bit easier.

Part I//Part II: “Now look at me and tell me everything.”

Minseok was used to being the oldest of his group of friends, the one who didn’t speak much and tried to drink as less as possible so he could drive his drunken friends home; it wasn’t only at the time when he became an idol, he was also the oldest of his class back when he was studying in high school and even though he wasn’t the tallest, he was the most mature. Without really wanting to, we create patterns in our lives that tend to make us follow certain movements and actions that we repeat until the day of our deaths and Minseok just liked being the oldest, he liked the responsibility that came with said name even when sometimes there was someone older than him, he liked the concept of it, actually. That’s why he babysat when he needed money that couldn’t be given by the little thrift shop he worked at and sometimes he tutored his younger friends, probably neighbors that grew up with him or one of the children of her mother’s friends. He just liked…the whole way his life worked when he pretended he had everything together but in reality, he didn’t.

That word, pretend, it should be in capital letters and highlighted.

It all started when he found out that a thesis wasn’t as easy as he thought it’d be and he spent his hours after work looking through books in a library with a little bit of help from his friend and classmate Jongdae, who was also the one who was working on his thesis with him, then he had that voice inside his head that reminded him that indeed he had a soul mate and whilst he adored teasing her to no end, he still didn’t know her. In between one of those nights where the, already graduated, Kim Junmyeon tried to help him out with a few things, he started listening to his thoughts and found out that not only had Yixing casually got to know his soul mate but he also realized that he was out of his freaking mind because he took a taxi as soon as possible just to get to meet her and once he did, he didn’t know what to do.

anonymous asked:

Can you write something about harry getting a strip tease or a lap dance from his gf? It doesnt have to be long just a little something? Thank you

Saturday

For the first time all week, I wasn’t nervous.  When I’d bought this set with Angie, it actually wasn’t for the experiment, but I decided at the last minute to use it for tonight.  It was so pretty and I actually couldn’t wait to show it to him.  

I felt bad about what had happened last night.  The idea that Harry had rejected me was born out of nothing but an insecurity I didn’t realize I had.  Though I’d apologized, I still felt like I’d needlessly upset us both.  And I’d forced him to break one of his rules, never go to bed angry, which I felt bad about.

So tonight I was going to focus on him.  Or I was going to try to anyway.  Harry had this knack for turning things around to focus on me when I’d tried it in the past.  I was hoping tonight’s set would distract him.

We had been at Gemma’s all day and most of the evening.  I sincerely loved spending time with Harry’s mother and sister, especially lately when they were all still recovering from having lost Robin.  It was nice to be around people who dealt with their own loss and darkness by filling the lives of those they loved with light and hopefulness.  

It was dark when we got home.  Harry parked while I walked into the house and turned on some lights.  I heard the garage door close as I made my way to our bedroom.  He followed me a bit later,

“Are you going to come to the suit fitting next week?”  He asked as he walked from the closet to the bathroom while he got ready for bed.  

“I really want to.  I’d love to see what they made for you.”

He smiled,

“Probably just some more weird shit you find funny.”

I walked towards him, pressing a kiss to the tip of his nose when his hands landed on my hips,

“Not funny.  Just…”  I stopped, unable to find a word and then shrugged, “Alright, funny.”

He laughed, his eyes drifting down to the top button of my shirt,

“You been wearin’ it all day haven’t ya?”  He asked, his voice low.

Cedric having an crush on you would include…

-Actually, you didn’t even think about Cedric having a crush on you

- He was popular, basically got along with everybody, and you were.. well, you were you

- You didn’t have ‘enemies’ or something, but you had your small group of friends, that you liked to stick to

- What you didn’t notice however, was the way Cedric kept looking at you

- You had quite a few classes together and somehow he just couldn’t take his eyes off you

- He loved the way you didn’t seem to notice the people around you, something about it made you seem so innocent and pure, which somehow made his heart flutter

- Sometimes he would look at you, just to see that you’d been already looking at him, though

- And if the way you’d blush and shyly look away afterwards wasn’t the cutest thing he’d ever seen

- Feeling brave, he would take his chance to get you into a conversation when you had to get together in pairs for a project in class

- He couldn’t stop grinning after you agreed to work on the project together

- Now having a reason to see you more often, he would sit next to you during dinner, pretending to have to talk about the project

- When you were working on the assignment, he would at some point just stop doing whatever he was about to do, to tell you how beautiful your eyes were

- Seeing how this made you blush kind of made it his goal to try even harder

- He would come by to read whatever you were reading over your shoulder, standing just a bit too close to you

- ‘Accidentally’ brushing his fingers against yours while taking a paper you were handing him, but not being able to keep up the innocent facade after a grin spread over his face

- Him being kind of sad the day that your project was finished, and deciding that it was about time to make a move now

- He would stop you before handing in the assignment to your professor, and pull you a few steps away from the other students

- He actually tried to stay relaxed but somehow he was incredibly nerveous

- “Okay, so I don’t think I could make it anymore obvious. But Y/N, I really like you. This project.. it was basically the best time I had in quite a while. Because of you. And you know, if you’d like to.. spend some time with me, even without the project that would.. that would be amazing actually”

- You’d just have to blink a few times, trying to process what he had just said, before joyfully smiling at him, telling him how you’d enjoy that as well

- He’d grin at you, looking over to the other students, and when he saw they weren’t paying attention, he’d tilt his head to place a small kiss on your lips
(which definitely wasn’t your last shared kiss)

@nekodemon73 @kumpmk @bookswillfindyouaway @mads—world @sugakookiexx


There was not much you remembered of last night, as you had been drowned in an alcohol infused haze most of the evening. Though one event stuck out quite visible, etched into your memories… 
 
As the hall had cleared out a bit Ubbe had taken you by the hand, pulling you along while you giggled all the way to the nearest empty room. He sat down on one of the chairs with his trousers down to his knees. You jumped into his lap, pushing up your dress and sunk down onto his cock. Your hips moved against his and you moaned loudly when you felt him filling you out completely. You had to slow down for a moment, adjusting to his massive size before you moved again. 
With your arms around his neck and your head nestled against his shoulder, little gasps and whimpers escaped you. 
You screamed in pleasure when Ubbe moved, ramming into you from underneath you. The action made you open your eyes for a moment, that was when you locked eyes with him.

summary - A Jae scenario based on the song ‘I Smile’ by Day6 (lyrics in italics). You and Jae had been broken up for some years, however you accidentally meet again, causing old feelings and emotions to rise. Jae wanted to pursue his music career and both of you left. Neither one of you admitted it to each other, but you missed one another terribly. 


“There’s a graduation festival on at my university this Saturday if you’d like to come,” Y/F/N announced, slumping down onto the couch in your family’s living room.

“Yeah? That’d be nice considering I’m finished up at school too,” I said, placing down two cups of tea. Both you and your best friend loved to spend the first week of summer holidays being lazy at one of each other’s homes. Tonight you made cookies and were about to start watching a new, highly popular drama, lying around in your comfy pyjamas.

“I just love the festivals each year, there’s always great music and free food, which is a bonus,” Y/F/N added, picking up a warm cookie from the plate that was perched on the coffee table.

For the rest of the evening we happily chatted about our weekend plans and commented on the drama that we were currently watching.
