I wonder when Louis is finally going to get his re-brand and full launch as a solo artist.
And I say this because Niall and Liam had all their social media accounts updated, got a professional photo shoot done, and their labels and management have been using those for their profile. They have been essentially given a re-launch as solo artists.
With Harry’s advert dropping yesterday and his Instagram and Facebook getting a white out, I am fully expecting we’ll get the same.
Meanwhile, Louis has had a solo single out since December and his social media accounts, management and PR profiles, and even Spotify, use pictures from the FOUR and MITAM era. He only changed his twitter AVI today with that photo from Ultra. (Thank God.)
It’s really just apparent that no one has cultivated a solo campaign for Louis despite having a product out, and worse, despite have that product actually do well. It’s been absolutely the same bullshit (and worse) around Louis and his press, doing his image and his brand no favours whatsoever!
Again, I ask - what has his team been doing this whole time? It’s become painfully obvious that they have NOT really put a lot of thought into how to promote Louis and his brand? He’s been with JGG for 9 months now!
To try and hit all the questions I have about the Cherliam baby in my inbox in one fell swoop, I’m just going to say a few things:
I think Cheryl had planned to have a baby for awhile via IVF, and Liam was made aware of this fact when Cherliam began.
No, I still don’t think that Liam and Cheryl were ever actually in a romantic relationship together. I didn’t think that for the last year, and I don’t think that now. For me to do that, I would have to suspend all logic automatically forget that the following things happened:
- Cheryl and Loammy’s relationship is announced in February. They immediately get called out for it being fake.
-Roughly one month after being “Together”, in March, pregnancy seeding started, with bump watch photos being run beginning in May, followed by Dan Wootton’s “Exclusive reveal” that Cheryl and Liam were trying for a baby, which brings me to
-What celebrity couple, ½ of which is STILL LEGALLY MARRIED, the other half being 23 and about to embark on a solo career which will have him pretty much away for extended periods of time, decide after 3 months of dating that they want to have a baby together, and what’s more, decide they want to announce that to the general public via DAN WOOTTON?
- Cheryl was baiting the press before she was even pregnant by wearing sack dresses one day and a hand pressed to her belly, and the next wearing well tailored outfits. While all this was happening, she was also selling stories to the tabloids almost daily while simultaneously calling for her privacy. I very much cannot with that.
- Loammy basically stays in LA for pretty much Cheryl’s entire pregnancy. To try and mitigate that, they seed reasons for Loammy’s absence during her pregnancy and for why Loammy won’t be present for raising that baby shortly after its born.
And that’s pretty much my Melly thoughts on this matter.

I've had this really terrible art block for the past couple of months, do you have any tips on how to help this?
*lies on the floor*
actually for the past two weeks I’ve had a pretty bad art block and I’ve just ben feeling pretty unemotional and uninspired
here are some things I like to do when I’m like this and they help sometimes:
-draw a big scribble and try to find a picture in it
-draw blobs and turn them into people’s faces (helps with diversifying silhouettes)
-look at styles of other artists
-look at pictures/listen to music that inspires you
-drink water so you don’t feel like gárbágé
-try not to dissociate
-try a different medium than you usually use
-find word prompts (like my fpa blog)
Can I request numbers 1, 2, 49, 51 and 60 with Derek Hale? Pretty Please. <3
Derek Hale - “You are my sunshine.”
Derek had his arm wrapped around your shoulders. Absentmindedly he was staring at the television. He had no idea what he was watching. He just knew that you were enjoying it, which was all that really mattered to him.
“Are you still awake?” You lifted your head up. You had a hand on his chest and a smile on your face.
“Yes, I am. Don’t worry.” Derek nodded and he pressed a soft kiss on your forehead. “Do you like the movie?” He already knew the answer, but he asked it anyway.
“I’ve already seen it a thousand times. Do you like it?” You raised your eyebrows and you cocked your head. “We can watch something else if you want?”
“No, it’s fine. If you enjoy it, I enjoy it too.” Derek shook his head and he tightened his grip on you. “I didn’t really pay much attention to the movie, but I just stared at you for at least an hour and I liked every second of it.”
You grinned and you grabbed the remote control to turn the tv off. "You’re too good for this world, Derek Hale. I don’t know that many men who would sit through a boring romantic comedy where you can see the end coming from the very first second just to watch their girlfriend enjoy it.“
“Most men have no idea what they’re missing out on.” His lips curled up into a slight smile. He still couldn’t believe that despite everything you were here in his arms, calling him your boyfriend, telling him you love him, assuring him that he was too good for this world. He still couldn’t believe that the happy end he had thought he would never get seemed to be here eventually.
“I’m sorry that I have such a horrible taste in movies and that you have to sit through them all. You deserve better than me.” You giggled and your finger tapped the tip of his nose.
“I don’t.” Derek grabbed your wrist and he pulled you a little closer towards him. “I don’t deserve better than you, because there is no better than you.” He tucked a strand of hair behind your ear. “I have to tell you something.” He took a deep breath. “I really thought that this, being together with someone, quiet evenings on the couch, watching movies I don’t even like just because someone else likes them, was not gonna happen to me.” He licked his lips. “I wasn’t really lucky when it came to love. Happy endings were something for Scott, for Stiles, maybe even Isaac. I didn’t think there would be one for me.”
You shifted your weight a little and you kept your eyes locked with his.
Derek wasn’t much of a talker and he was glad that when he did talk you simply let him. “After our first date I was sure that something would happen. You would move out of town. You would get killed. You would turn out to be some kind of dark creature responsible for a massacre.” He swallowed, pushing the memories away. “And the first time you came here and left again, I realized that maybe this time could be different and I had almost asked you to stay for the night.”
Your lips curled up into a smile and you pressed a soft kiss on his cheek. “I hated going home that day and if you had asked me to stay, I would’ve.” You spoke softly and Derek’s heart skipped a beat in his chest. “I hope you don’t doubt anymore that you deserve a happy ending and that I want to be part of that?” You kissed his lips. “Because you make it sound like I’ve saved your life, but it’s the other way round. You are my sunshine, Derek. And without you my life wouldn’t be half as beautiful.”
Smut. So in the end I wasn’t sure how to do this sO this is what I came up with, hope you like it!
Your hand was moving swiftly on Seokmin’s cock, covered with some lube and standing hard and heavy in your hand, while he sat on an armchair in your living room. It was difficult, if not impossible, to decide whether you wanted to keep your eyes on his length and abdominal muscles or his face - all sights were just as delightful.
His cock had always been something that really pleased your eye; in one word you would’ve described it as beautiful, really. While it might’ve sounded weird, it was the truth: the shape was perfect, the girth pleased you in more ways than one, and with the right kind of grooming, it only looked better and more inviting. So when you put that, hard and veiny and leaking bits of pre-cum, next to his abdominal muscles contracting and his face contorting a little as he tried to control his facial features, it was a difficult choice to make.
“Y/N,” Seokmin whimpered when you rubbed the head of his length with your palm, knowing how sensitive it was. His chest was heaving rapidly and his abs contracted time after time, but at the end all you got was a long groan as he clutched the armrests of the chair tightly.
“I’m here, Seokmin,” you said, your voice soft in contrast to the way you were relentlessly touching the most sensitive parts of his manhood, taking advantage of your knowledge of him. He writhed a little, and with a strangled yet utterly beautiful moan, streaks of cum began dripping down your fingers. Your fingers curved into a small, almost devilish smile, as you continued stroking him, now placing your other hand reassuringly on his thigh. “Good boy.”
He panted while you continued stroking him despite how sensitive he was and how impossible it was for him to stay silent at that point, and as much as he felt like shying away from your touch, he enjoyed it too much to put a stop to it. Forcing his eyes open, he looked at you with hazy eyes, taking in your darkened eyes, intent on his cock and occasionally moving up to his face.
Bucking his hips up a little into your touch and whimpering at the sensation, Seokmin managed to breathe out a question that had you pressing your thighs together while his quivered under your touch.
“The final, and probably the best, memorable moment involved Daehyun and his mother. When Yongguk revealed that Daehyun’s mother had sent him some side dishes the night before, Daehyun’s response was a little less than enthusiastic. When pressed about it, the idol said, “My mom’s not here, so I can say this, but my mom’s food is not that good. Maybe it’s because my taste buds are used to MSG and fast food, but it’s really not that good.”
However, his expression soon turned to a look of horror when his fans pointed at his mom, waving at him from the audience. Daehyun immediately tried to do damage control and said, “I didn’t say all of my mom’s food is bad. Just some of it doesn’t agree with me.” He ended the situation on a good note, explaining that his mom had been taking such good care of him these days, feeding him abalone, samgyetang (chicken soup with ginseng), and soy sauce marinated crab.” -Soompi
Daehyun really embarrassed his mom and himself in front of all these ppl and soompi decided to attend at just the right time
NCT U+ Johnny Reacting To Their S/O’s Family Arguing
Anon: Could you do nct u + johnnys reaction to their s/o bringing them to meet the family and all the s/o and the family do is argue and at the end they apologize they had to sit through all that
A/N: This request was sort of confusing but I did what I could do with it xx
Taeyong will be really respectful and understanding and he’ll just smile at them, telling them not to apologise. But you could see he was flustered.
Jaehyun would be a bit scared of the whole thing and will hold your hand tightly, asking you if its too late to leave.
Doyoung just smiled at everyone and pretended it was all okay. He just shook his head nicely when your parents apologised. “It’s okay, all families have their problems.” But you could see how awkward he was.
Taeil would be so awkward but he’ll keep a straight face, often shooting you a smile or two. When your parents apologised he instantly stopped them. “Its okay! My family is pretty problematic too.” And then he realised that he called your family problematic and excused himself to the bathroom to get away from your family.
“Y/N what is going on?” He muttered under his breath, still holding a smile. When he saw how uncomfortable you were he stopped. He just smiled and shook his head when your parents apologised asking them not to.
Johnny would just laugh it off, trying be calm but when he saw you losing your shit he held your hand and smiled at you too. He was really mortified when your parents started apologising. “Oh no its okay rlly!”
Ten would just smile along, pretending its totally normal and would have to go for bathroom breaks because its so stressful for him. He’ll just smile and nod when your parents apologise, thinking he deserves it.
Hey Caddy love your work. Do you remember the old show "Grizzly tales for gruesome kids" and what are your thoughts on it?
Dude I used to LOVE that show. I was brought up extremely sheltered and protected in a metaphorical bubble, so when I was younger that was probably the edgiest stuff I had seen centred for kids when I was around 6. Sounds pathetic but it really did fascinate me since I hadn’t seen anything like that before on kids TV. It never scared me or anything, I just found it so refreshing and dark and gross against the stuff I was pushed towards watching (well, when I wasn’t being told to go outside anyway and play football which I ever liked from day 1 lol).
???: Surprising how easy it was to get here. Kathryn: But it’s late. ???: He wants us here, he just couldn’t tell us, yeah? Kathryn: I really do miss him… ???: Who cares! Oh, wait. We do care! Maybe that annoying pest is sleeping, yes, yes! *snickers* It’d be amazing to have him riight there and then, no?~ Kathryn: *nods* ???: Perhaps we just need a bit of help. It’s alright, he is our doctor after all.
Kathryn nodded again, he is. Or was? She was alright now, they had let her out fair and square, yes! She giggled before stepping towards the stairs. There were stairs to a backdoor that led into the kitchen, if she remembered correctly. The kitchen was too pretty to destroy, but she wondered what they’d done with the rest. She snickered to herself while pretty expertly getting the lock open.
Kathryn: Doctor, doctor, doctor.
She hummed as she quietly shut the door behind her with a smile. Oh how she had missed this place, though it was much prettier set ablaze.
Concepts for my Sith Warrior. Remember that pale, platinum haired SW? Yeah, she’s gone. I’ve been finding it really tough to figure out what my SW is gonna be like, until today, I had an idea.
This SW is gonna be sassy, bad-tempered and raised to think that she was the most important person in the galaxy. After Baras’ betrayal, she realises just how small she is. This experience makes her more humble and ironically, helps her to stop judging people and to trust them as well.
Now, which one do you like best? Please note that these designs are not final.
Tldr; Sales reps at a mass printing company I work for treat the packaging department, especially one of my younger supervisors, like shit
I work for a really big company that makes signage for other big companies. I work in the packaging department, which, with shipping and fufillment, is the lowest in the hierarchy of the company. The sales reps, the people who deal directly with the companies who order signage from us, act like they’re way better than us because they don’t have to get down and dirty like we do and make way more than us. Recently we’ve been super busy with really big orders and the sales people just don’t appreciate what we do and don’t understand that we are literally incapable of some things. We had a big big order a month or two ago for a big clothing company (california/beach-themed popular teen clothing company) that we had to spend a week on nonstop, putting other jobs behind. It doesn’t affect me as much, but one of my supervisors in packaging, Sky, has been under a lot of pressure from upper management. They make her cry constantly and it forces her to work almost 12 hour days 5+ days a week. They have weekly meetings on Fridays and she tells me that the sales reps never have anything good to say about us. They’re always like “Why didn’t my job go out today?!” “MY job was supposed to go out YESTERDAY!” and always accusatory toward Sky like it’s all her fault. I feel so bad for Sky. I love her so much and she’s my favorite supervisor. She’s usually in such a great mood all the time no matter what. But since we’re so behind from the big big job, some jobs don’t go out on time because we just don’t have enough hands to get it all done on time. And poor Sky is getting all the shit for it even though it’s beyond her and the whole packaging department’s control. The sales reps blame her for anything that THEY do wrong. They SHOULD be looking everything from their job over before it’s packed and shipped to make sure it’s right, but there was one job recently where the sales rep in charge OKed a display without putting it together and then got pissed at Sky when the wrong number of poles was packed in each kit, even though the sales rep had OKed it. It doesn’t affect me as much, but I’m getting really sick of the way the sales reps treat Sky, who is truly an angel, like garbage, and don’t appreciate the work the packaging department does.
After getting the newspaper delivered, Vato is urgently calling for Mustang. I’m not sure what exactly he plans to do or say, so maybe he just wants Mustang’s account on it.
Also, Vato is alone and only has a handgun to defend himself. I really don’t know what’s stopping Barry from killing him and running free… I guess Barry just doesn’t want to do that. Yeah, when was the last time this guy had some friends? (I don’t know if Barry got along with Slicer and Slicer’s Bro).
Since I had a really busy week and I was unable to join the challenge and do it live I thought I’ll just complete it all at once - I hope that’s OK :) Thanks for thinking about this @saucylittlesmile it was fun!
Day 1 - Russia
I’m not entirely sure if this is considered as Russia but since it’s from the Sochi Olympics I went with it anyway. Sochi had tons of moments to pick from and my first instinct was to pick the ending hug from the SD or FD or the sweet little hug from the gala practice when I remembered this photo. It was one of the first photos of them I came across and one that immediately made me wonder “are they together?” since if you take a way the Canada coats and the writing on the cover, it really do look like the definition of a“couple in love” photo. Either way it’s a stunning photo, and it captures them to perfection :)
Day 2 - Italy
Just after the FD at worlds 2010 there was a brief moment of a cheek kiss in the K&C, one so short you could miss it if you blinked. Luckily for us it gets to live in this photo forever :)
Day 3 - United States
I’m an absolute sucker for when a partner shows complete and utter support of the other partner in times of need and Scott is the master of this quality. In 2009 worlds they were just coming back from Tessa’s first surgery, still in a weird place relationship wise (from their own stories) and still he never stopped telling her how proud he is of her (here was the third or fourth time from the moment they finished the FD):
Day 4 - Japan
NHK trophy was one of the highlights of the season, it was the first competition where TS went head to head with P/C and we were all curious to see how it will pan out. We hoped that when put at the same rink, side by side, the qualities and differences will be more apparent. But what stayed with us the most (I think) was the support TS gave each other through the competition (especially Tessa to Scott) and how connected they appeared. There are tons of moments to choose from and I was again tempted to go with the head lean from the medal ceremony but this next moment was so random and sweet and caring that I went with it :) (gif credit: the lovely @cuteiceprincesslove)
Day 5 - France
2009 TEB was just in the middle of the 2010 Olympic season. They were sitting in the K&C just after performing Mahler and could not for the life of them understand why their chairs are so far apart. So being the resourceful humans they are they did the only logical thing and brought their chairs closer together much to the enjoyment of the crowd. Their sweet embarrassment together with their inability to stay far from each other for several minutes totally won me over.
Day 6 - South Korea
Always goofing around, always having fun, 20 years together and they just want to spend more time together. And when you look at moments like this, how they manage to make each other smile this big at practice in the middle of a major competition like this year 4CC, you can clearly see why…
Day 7 - China
When I though about China I immediately thought about the tour TS did there in the summer of 2014. If their trip to China in 2015 was all about new beginnings, the previous one felt much more confusing and unclear. They performed Into the Mystic in their “Great gig in the sky” costumes and from performance to performance the ending became more emotional and even desperate at times. But it created some amazing photos, this one is one of my favorites:
Day 8 - Canada
Going back to the very beginning they always say they chase the feeling they got from competing at 2004 Nationals, and you can see it on their faces here. Plus, that hug at the end of the FD was filled with love (with Scott going to what we will later refer to as his favorite spot) and you can see from such a young age their complete dedication and devotion to one another.
So I’ve been on holiday in the last week, and while it’s been an incredible few days of dessert-galore and junk food, it’s high time to get in some nutritious food again. Just wanted to share my lunch today to show you how I get back on track after a week of indulging in whatever I wanted (involved tons of desserts and other goodness). You definitely don’t need to restrict; it’s all about balance! Just go back to how you’d normally do things!
This was a really filling, nutrient-packed big bowl of oatmeal topped with an apple, ground flaxseed and natural peanut butter. Also had a kale, mango and banana smoothie with soy milk on the side. Really hit the spot with me!
You groan and fall back on your bed. After the day you had, you just want to cuddle with your husband. You know that he had a show, but it should be over by now, so you decide to call him.
You smile instantly when you hear his voice. “Hey, baby. What’s up?”
“I’m tired and want cuddles.”
He chuckles and walks out of the theater. “I’m on my way home now. Do you want me to pick up something to eat?”
“Please. Whatever you want.”
“Alright. I’ll be home in just a bit. Is this a problem Monty Python can solve?”
You giggle. “Is there a problem Monty Python can’t solve?”
He laughs. “I’ll be home soon, okay? How ‘bout you get a few movies to watch.”
“You have no idea how much I love you.”
“I love you, too. I’ve got to go. See you in a minute.”
“Love you. Bye.”
You grab a few movies and go back to bed, waiting for Lin to come home. You hear the door unlock and Lin’s footsteps coming to your room. He sets the food on your nightstand and slides off his coat and shoes before climbing into bed next to you. He wraps his arm around you and pulls you close to his chest, kissing the top of your head. You press play on the remote and nestle yourself into his chest while the movie plays.
You occasionally take a bit of your dinner, while Lin runs his fingers through your hair.
He looks over at you. “For what?”
“For being the best husband.”
He smiles and kisses you. “I’d do anything for you.”
“Really, though, I know you probably had something to do. I really appreciate this.”
“(Y/N). I love you to the ends of the earth. Nothing is more important than you. Now get some sleep. It’s getting late, and you have work tomorrow.” He turns off the movie and sets your empty take-out box on the nightstand.
Regarding the Nerve Endings update I promised for today…I was having a really hard time getting this chapter going after the bomb I dropped at the end of the last one. I’d spent a stupid amount of time editing one page of garbage, getting nowhere. Then I had this little interaction with my rl Victor this morning:
Me: Everything I’m writing is so congested and awful. I’ve spent 8 years on this one stupid page.
Him: Maybe you should just scrap the whole thing and start the chapter over again.
Me: WHAT?! Are you insane?! I can’t do that! No way no way, man, that would be the WORST. NEVER.
Me, 2 minutes later: Alright I’m starting over.
Me, 10 minutes later: Okay this is 10,000 times better.
Him: I love you too.
Moral of the story: sometimes it’s better to just toss the damn thing. Hopefully I’ll be able to write more fluidly now and get the chapter up by tomorrow. If not, Tuesday. I’m sure everyone will be reading the Rivals update anyway (including myself)
