i haven't smoked in to long

Specious Species

“You can’t light up in here, you know.”

Martin twisted his paint-stained left hand. Tulip hues faceted the shine on the tap. The tip of his cigarette bounced off the wooden bar three and a half times. “I don’t carry matches with me. Just the cig.” He stuck it between practised lips and closed his eyes in a semblance of bliss as he breathed.

“Nasty habit. My dead ex smoked two packs a day.” A chipped manicure held up a glass to get the bartender’s attention. “Which explains the dead part.”

The barkeep kept an eye on Martin while refilling the woman’s vodka. “Just don’t flash it around. It might give other people ideas.”

The woman in need of a nail salon left the now full shot glass on the bar for minute as she pulled out a compact and a tube of burnt red lipstick. “Nobody inhales anyway. Not anymore. It’s all a farce now with those electronic cigarettes that look like grotesquely large steroid inhalers or insanely small oxygen tanks.” Her hand was shaking and a smudge of what looked like an open would spread out from the corner of her lower lip. “Shit.”

The inert cigarette was pushed behind an ear as Martin watched her repair her face. The colour on her cheeks reminded him of the way he concealed rough patches on canvas with brighter shades. “It’s not entirely fake,” he said as she powdered her nose. “It’s about presentation.”

She turned a fresh-lipped smirk. “A bogus presentation. An illusionist’s trick.” The compact slapped shut next to the ear with the cigarette. “We are distracted and then it all vanishes.” She left a pink half-moon shape on the edge of the glass after the liquid in it disappeared.

Martin scraped at his hands, little flecks of paint snowing the bar. The tap picked up the rainbow, reflecting it around the bar as Martin vanished his beer.


On doing television vs. theater:
The whole experience of film or television  time feels very fast, and very slow, and you’re revisiting things. I still find live theater the most energizing. Every performance is unique, every audience is different, and there’s an immediacy that’s addictive, especially when you’re in a great play like Book of Mormon or Falsettos.

Time sensitive, does binding while having a bad cough (not sure if it's bronchitis as I haven't gone to the doctor yet) dangerous or not suggested? I just got my binder in the mail and I feel like the adrenaline will make me want to go as long as my body will allow.

I think episode 18 is gonna be flashback of young nina and charioce!! I was checking the Japanese hashtag on twitter and I saw one tweet saying (hope Japanese translation was accurate) something like viewing starts, for now both young. I hope I'm correct i assumed it might be a flashback because one of the animators had a sketch of nina with her father which at some point they have to show him soon.

Indeed, I don’t know about the translation either, but that could be the case! (I think I know which twitter you’re talking about)

By now, this is the interesting stuff I could find:


(At the beginning of the viewing)

Charinina (not sure if this is angst or just feels tbh)

Charinina (is) Charinina

Fava ~ ~ ~ (Favaro)

This is about the impressions of episode 18 episode 19 episode, Charinina is agonized (???) as ever. I seriously cried. Also Kaisar looking cool, FAVAROO looking cool, poor little Azazel, Bacchus was unexpected, Rita lovely, Alessand …?! That’s what I thought
(They added that something called kelko was about to come, but I don’t know what it could mean)

At the talk corner, Charinina’s kiss scene was initially for promotion?

Here I didn’t really get it, they’re American? And they felt the kiss was kinda rushed the first time they saw it, but now changed their mind? They were asking for that to be recorded on a disc, but I’m definitely not sure

Definintely not sure about this one either. Google translate wrote this:
It’s only about two people, who hugged after being stared still, clearly saying “to make you happy for the rest of your life”, Charinina tries to desperately strike a calm

To be happy for Nina for the rest of your life, you must live first, so you really should not die Charios … (THIS THO)

I did not get a gift, but I read a strip of paper about where (it was said) he was in love with Nina! ! Charinina, for love at first sight (laugh)

You are going to Sendai! I love to hear CharininaI is loveat first sight  (laugh)

Charinina’s love has pushed me (^ - ^)
Because I’m talking on the flow of the talk, whether it is troublesome or director directly answered properly (laugh), I think that’s probably different lol I think that now I think I will be happy \ (^ - ^) /
The director’s texture is as usual (lol) I am also looking forward to the broadcasting part ♡ ♡

(I think this is the twitter in which they confirmed Charioce fell in love at first sight with Nina awwww)

I thought that it was a while to wait and I’m aware of Amapura (dunno what it may mean as a word) 17 episodes, I was overwhelmed witho the destructive power of Charinina … (* ‘Д `*) Charioce’s facial expressions were portrayed in any detail, (looking) hard lovingly to Nina (too moe)

Then look at the 6th and 13th episodes set of the Charinina Sacred Circle until his majesty’s “Beam went Gaaaa!!!” to laugh at laughter (’ ’)


Favorite food
Nina chicken meat
Chari → Lamb meat
Kaisar → smoked pork
Fava beans

I found this cute!

Feel free to add or correct the translation tho!

(btw this is kinda long, Idk if you want me to add a “keep reading” or something, but if needed I’ll do it)

US Paps, SF Paps, and the UF brothers have an ex (or enemy if they haven't dated before) that tries to warn their SO about them right in front of the both of them. After a very long explanation about the skelle’s unsavory nature and questionable past, SO just replies “I know.”and kisses them deeply. Their response?

Ohohohohohoho. I like this one

US!Papyrus has had a few flings, but he’d never thought he’d given that much away. Of course, his ex warns S/O about all of Papyrus’ flaws. His smoking habit, his few run-ins with the law, and so on. Papyrus is trying to keep his cool, but on the inside he’s panicking. When the ex finally leaves, Papyrus tries to explain himself And then Papyrus is reminded once again why he loves S/O, when they shut him up with a kiss.

SF!Papyrus goes silent the entire time the enemy is listing all of his “flaws.” Everything from the people he’s killed to his control freak nature. He doesn’t even bother trying to explain himself. He just assumes S/O is going to leave him, so the kiss comes as a surprise. He’s not exactly sure what to make of it.

UF!Sans threatens the enemy right off the bat until they back off. He also assumes S/O is just gonna leave him and tries to storm off. But S/O catches him and gives him a smooch, and he’s suddenly a lot more reassured. Still grumbles a bit.

UF!Papyrus has a looooooong list of ex’s as well as enemies, and the lists overlap often. And Papyrus has very few problems with killing anyone on that list. But he remains civil for S/O. At the kiss, he melts. S/O doesn’t hate him. S/O doesn’t hate him

but it was Earth all along

And what I learned was that I never had to look for you, not really. In your absence I constructed a mirage of you, something that was awkwardly cobbled together by accounts of you. I breathed the visage of you in, like secondhand smoke, and exhaled as though you only ever existed as a spectre.

It was something I did lovingly, tenderly - create you, then recreate you. I smoothed the imagination of you over and made a sculpture of you - frozen in time, smile affixed to your face. Everyone called you perfect - everyone still does, in fact, and it’s an easy enough lie to believe when I had smoothed everything out. It was so tantalisingly easy to believe - the idea that the warmth of my hands unfixed your perfection, that it was better for you if I had made you perfect and cold in my head. That I would look, but never touch.

So there I was - me, hands laid bare and looking up at you, with your hands behind your back. I find it disgusting, even now, how unreliable eyewitness testimony really is. I never used to meditate on the fact that you were taller than me, but somehow that was all I could think about when you weren’t there. The fact that you were above me, or the fact that I felt whittled, diminished almost in your existence. I didn’t know why, but you chipped away at me.

But - it was just you all this time, wasn’t it? And what did it matter, how others said you were doing? What should it have meant to me, how others speculated on your innermost thoughts, when I could’ve probably read them effortlessly? Why did it matter to me, at all, how others experienced you - why did it matter more to me than my own knowledge?

And, you - wasn’t it a scary thing, watching me disappear like that? Wasn’t it terrible for you, to watch me break myself against you, to hear me whisper about your godhead in your ear, but out of eyeshot? Wasn’t it so, so awful to think that all of this was the fault of mistakes made when younger and even more stupid?

Somewhere in the past I can see you - overgrown child, who draws herself closer and closer to flames and draws back when they touch her - and from the future, I tell you:

“I found you.”

I haven't loved a star wars headcannon the way I love mace windu unfucks the timeline in so long it hurts. this is wonderful-also I have a deeply ingrained vision of Mace wearing the twins in baby slings- two of them one on the front one on the back- for when they're too big for his sleeves and padme and ani wanted alone time OK (C3PO and baby sitting sugar high force sensetive TODDLER/ terrible twos twins is a recipe for coming home to a smoking crater) if there ever was one)

Mace is a fantastic babysitter, by which I mean he has his own baby slings and speederseats for the children and spoils them terribly in the name of them staying at least fifty percent Light side. There are two of them, okay, and he only HAS two hands. Shmi is totally behind the spoiling, but also, ffs, Mace, show some restraint, the babies are TOO YOUNG for space ice cream. 

Mace has never heard such nonsense in EITHER of his lives. 

so i hope you don’t mind that i combined your prompts into one fic! you can consider this pre-accident, or even in an au where the accident never happens hehe. i just want the sad dads to be happy!!!!!!!!

Is The Almighty Johnsons good? I've heard of it (when googling dean o'gorman) but I haven't had a chance to watch it yet.

Short answer, YES. :) Long answer…

First of all, you have Dean O’Gorman walking around looking like this:

Anders is a smoking hot, womanizing jerk with a heart of…probably not gold but maybe in his best moments…sterling silver?

But then there are his brothers:

Ty is a pure cinnamon roll, too good for this world (if cinnamon rolls were built like brick houses with biceps bigger than your head). Mike is the eldest and the mother hen of the group who has to ride herd on all his brothers’ drama and bail them out when they’re in trouble. Axl is the youngest, sort of sweet and a little naive, the hopeful optimist of the group.

And there are some seriously awesome ladies…

Originally posted by kseniyasurvivor

Michele is a take-no-prisoners type of girl who plays an important part in the boys’ lives, along with Ingrid and Stacy, two other badasses for whom I couldn’t find any gifs (booo!).

Also there’s Dawn:

Originally posted by disdaidal

Dawn is the best, and has the uphill battle of trying to be Anders’ moral compass, AND she and Ty have the sweetest storyline, and honestly it’s worth watching the show just to get to their resolution in the series finale, during which I cried all over my treadmill.

Oh! I almost forgot cousin Olaf!

Originally posted by greatbedlam

He is a treasure, and responsible for some of the funniest moments in the show.

(Just a heads-up that there’s a fair bit of sex, if that doesn’t appeal.)

tl;dr By all means, please do watch The Almighty Johnsons, it’s fantastic.

Hey so I just smoked a bunch of weed and had a life journey and decided that I want to learn to draw. Where do I start? I haven't ever taken art seriously before. But it sounds fun and expressive and I need more outlets. So yeah, thank you for your time and stuff c:

I feel really bad that I have taken so long to reply to this, because I really hope you haven’t gone back on that decision. 

The 1st is: you’ve come to the right place.

well maybe not this exact blog

but if you want to express yourself, art is where it’s at

So if you’re looking for a place to start, I suggest sketches/drawing. Even if this doesn’t seem that fun, it’s a good building block to start off at. Whether you want to learn painting, drawing, or sculpting (or any number of art types), drawing can help you understand what you’re attempting to create.

This is also a good place to start if you don’t know what you wanna do. It’s relatively inexpensive and you can draw anything you want. 

Now I personally tend to draw people, varying in levels of realistic-ness. There are tons of things you can draw though; people, animals, landscapes, flowers, etc. 

When it comes to this, the internet is (usually) your friend. You can find tutorials, tips, and references just a google search away.

Just remember to practice.

skank!kurt/badboy!blaine, pg-13

Kurt flops down onto the ratty bench below the bleachers with an extended sigh. It has been a long day. And it’s only eleven thirty in the morning.

He ignores Quinn’s offer of a cigarette and extracts a pack of gum from the pocket of his tight jeans. He doesn’t mind the taste or smell of smoke, but even as a skank, he’s allowed to be concerned about his lung health.

“Puck got sent to juvie again,” she mutters, blowing out a stream of smoke up into the cloudy sky. “Fucking idiot, always messing shit up.”

Kurt nods, not wanting to say anything that could upset Quinn about the delicate balance of her relationship with Noah Puckerman. Instead he goes with something somewhat more neutral. “What did he do this time?”

She sighs and flicks her cigarette off over the arm of the couch. “He and Anderson stole Figgins’ car and drove it into the mall. Crashed right into the front of J Crew, fucked up all the window displays.”
