Story aesthetics: Japanese Snow white and Rose Red (Followed)-requested by @wormwoodandhoney

虎穴に入らずんば虎子を得ず ( If you do not enter the tiger’s cave, you will not catch its cub.)-Japanese Proverb

Once in that enchanted kingdom,there are two very special girls named Shiro-ko (Nana Komatsu) and Aka-ko (Emi Takei) ,they both loved each other and lived their lives quietly in that strange forest. Aka-ko longs for adventure beyond the peacefulness of the village as she absorbed herself with stories of wandering samurai batting youkais and women transformed into strange creatures. On the other hand,Shiro-ko plays the koto,engulfing herself writing haikus about fleeting nature,for she was timid of the busy world that is beyond their village.

One day Shiro-ko could see in her dreams,a bear-like spirit whispered to them to move off from their comforts of home to find its owner. For she felt frightened by the calling of the bear spirit and thus whispered that little secret to Aka-Ko being intuitive could feel a spirit came from that creature wandering around their village. And thus their adventure begins,to search for the bear spirit that enter in their house,towards strange perils and dangers. However they are not alone as there are two mischievous guardian spirits rooted in their bodies since the day they are born (A Rabbit for Shiro and a Fox for Aka) , to guide these girls along the way. They just need a little nudge to go to the big and wide world.

Top 10 reasons to read Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

#1 Dr. Jesper Fahey

“Why is he looking at me this way.” (Kuwei)

“Kaz is wondering if he should keep you alive,” said Jesper. “Terrible for the nerves. I recommend deep breathing. Maybe a tonic.”


#2 True Friendship

“Are you hungry? We have chocolate biscuits.” (Nina to Inej)

“Oh sure,” said Jesper. “She gets the cookie hoard.”

OR

“I’d tell you to ask the White Blade, but…” Inej shrugged. 

“I hope she suffered.” 

“Nina.” 

“What? We can’t both be merciful and serene.”

OR

"You’ve saved my life. I’ve saved yours.” 

“I think you’re ahead on that count.” 

“No, I don’t mean in the big ways.” Nina’s eyes took them all in. “I mean the little rescues. Laughing at my jokes. Forgiving me when I was foolish. Never trying to make me feel small. It doesn’t matter if it’s next month, or next year, or ten years from now, those will be the things I remember when I see you again.”


#3 The student becomes the teacher

“Wylan Van Eck, you lied to Kaz Brekker.” Jesper clutched a hand to his chest. “And you got away with it! Do you give lessons?”


#4 Mature and responsible adults

"I have been very patient with all of this, Jesper, but I am at my limit. I want you down here before I count ten or I will tan your hide so you don’t sit for two weeks.” Colm’s head vanished back down the stairs.

The silence stretched. Then Nina giggled. “You are in so much trouble.”

Jesper scowled. “Matthias, Nina let Cornelis Smeet grope her bottom.”

Nina stopped laughing. “I am going to turn your teeth inside out.”

“That is physically impossible.”


#5 Once again  Kaz being the bastard of the Barrel, the demon full of tricks, the mad man everyone feared  a 17 year old with a crush

His eyes scanned her face as they always had, closely, hungrily, snatching at the details of her like the thief he was—the even set of her dark brows, the rich brown of her eyes, the upward tilt of her lips. He didn’t deserve peace and he didn’t deserve forgiveness, but if he was going to die today, maybe the one thing he’d earned was the memory of her—brighter than anything he would ever have a right to—to take with him to the other side.

OR

She smiled then, her eyes red, her cheeks scattered with some kind of dust. It was a smile he thought he mightdie to earn again.

OR

Inej laughed, her hood falling back from her hair. “That’s the laugh,” he murmured.


#6 Grisha characters cameo

Kaz’s eyes narrowed. “Sturmhond.”

“He knows me!” Sturmhond said delightedly. He nudged Genya with an elbow. “I told you I’m famous.”

Zoya blew out an exasperated breath. “Thank you. He’s going to be twice as insufferable now.”


#7 Jealous?! Me?! Never!

Kuwei turned to Jesper. “You should visit me in Ravka. We could learn to use our powers together.”

“How about I push you in the canal and we see if you know how to swim?” Wylan said with a very passable imitation of Kaz’s glare.


#8 True love understands

“You’re better than waffles, Matthias Helvar.”

A small smile curled the Fjerdan’s lips. “Let’s not say things we don’t mean, my love.”

#9  I’m not crying. You are!

“I would come for you,” he said, and when he saw the wary look she shot him, he said it again. “I would come for you. And if I couldn’t walk, I’d crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we’d fight our way out together—knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that’s what we do. We never stop fighting.”


#10 Nice and peaceful things

"Genya Safin knows poisons like no one else, and David Kostyk developed all kinds of new weapons for King Nikolai.” She glanced at Matthias. “And other things too! Nice things. Very peaceful.”

Do you know what they’re hiding in the bag under Scott’s bed?

Ghost on the Shell’s in-movie ‘explanation’ for why the major is white was probably supposed to be an appeasement token, but it is honestly just so much more infuriating. They had to go and ‘admit’ that she is Japanese and cast her original self as a Japanese actress, but then she’s put into the shell which is designed to be an idealized form of a human: faster, stronger, smarter, better, and in order for her to become this model of perfection, she had to become white. Fuck this movie.

I hope that movie crashes and that ScarJo (who also starred in that racist movie Lucy) never stars in anything good again.

Having just watched last nights episode I can’t help but be struck with the parallels between the Robert/Rebecca SL and the upcoming Adam/Vanessa SL, and I wonder if Emmerdale are doing it deliberately, and they’re going to flip this whole thing on it’s head.

Robert was immediately vilified for his actions by the majority of people, the magazines, a large portion of the viewers (there are those of us, who haven’t forgiven him for it, but understand it at least), but for most he’s been made out to be the villain and this has continued over the weeks with Rebecca being made into the victim of this whole situation. 

Adam on the other hand, I know we have yet to see the whole thing play out yet, but already he is being seen as the victim here. He’s hurting, he’s in a bad place, so whilst it’s not okay, people seem to be able to understand his actions. 

Contrast the women here, Rebecca who Robert has repeatedly pushed away romantically, but has wanted to keep a friendship with. She’s someone that Aaron and Robert were beginning to be friends with, and Robert turns to her in a time of need, and she ends up sleeping with him (if they did, I’m still not convinced) but anyway, she does this whilst he’s drunk, in his new home with Aaron, in their bed and she’s continued to make out that Robert is the bad guy in this situation, when it clearly takes two to have sex, unless I’ve missed something somewhere. 

Vanessa, is also in a bad place right now, with everything that’s going on with Rhona, she’s lost her support and is probably quite vulnerable too right now. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think her and Adam have had many, if any scenes together since the whole mess with Johnny was solved and yet suddenly last night they were friends again. She was offering him advice as a friend, which is what he needed and she did it right. She told him to go to his wife, talk to his wife and not drown his feelings in the bottle. 

I know we’ve yet to see where this will end up, but I hope and I feel that it’s going to be that Adam comes onto Vanessa next week but Vanessa is going to do the right thing and she’s going to push him away. As a friend she knows it’s not what he wants and I hope she’s going to send him back to Victoria. 

This will then lead to a wait a minute moment, I hope, because it will contrast the two situations perfectly. Both men are vulnerable, drunk and hurting. We know from spoilers, that Adam is going to believe that his marriage to Vic is over, the same situation Robert was in, it’s also going to contrast the two women and the difference in their reactions to two men in pretty similar situations, who they’re supposed to be friends with. 

I hope this leads to people actually questioning their feelings towards Robert/Rebecca, that maybe with us finding out Robert isn’t the dad (if that’s true) then we’re going to see a shift from people vilifying Robert to actually feeling sorry for him, and understanding that he’s not actually the villain in this whole mess.

You know, I keep hoping that I’m gonna wake up and that you’ll be gone.

Date night - Feysand (Modern Time AU)

Inspired by this post by likehemmins but the acc is unavailable. *fuck this*

Date night - Feysand fluff (Modern time AU)

After all the time of not talking Feyre had hoped Tamlin would show up. He promised. Then again he had promised to come to her house a couple of times a week. He hadn’t done that either. He had broken so many promises over the last few weeks and made so many new ones. He wasn’t willing to let her go out even if it was with him and he wasn’t there.

I swear if Episode 10 is centered around POC Downworlders being the enemies and poor little white Clary is the victim, I'm gonna be mad

Agreed! I am not here for clary to be made to be seen as the White “saviour” like save that bullshit for the other racist shows. I just don’t want them to make the downworlders into the bad guys because in reality it is actually the shadowhunters that are plain cruel. They believe in this so called “democracy” but as long as they get what they want. And clary is no different, she’s written as someone who uses people for her own personal gain. Without taking into consideration the effects and consequences that it causes their lives.

It reminds me of what Magnus said to Jocelyn about her manipulating things and prying on things to get what she wants and as long as it meets her needs. And to be honest Clary is no different. She uses downworlders; Raphael, Magnus, Luke for what she wants. She goes to them when she needs help and then sometimes or most times betray them. Isabelle was right, Clary harps on about togetherness and shadowhunters and downworlders fighting together, but as long as it meets her needs and gets what she wants.

I just hope that we don’t get another white saviour situation where the People of Colour are made to be seen as the villains 😒😒

Well, while we celebrate her birthday in June, we do usually have a small tea party together on the day, according to tradition. Here’s the tea! I… I already had all of the scones…

Now let’s hope she outlives Betty White, I have 5 quid on it.
