ok I know we love the tassel but can we talk about The Look when malec were on the phone. The grey streak and light eye shadow and the fact that Magnus was literally wearing the night time sky as a shirt
PLEASE I KNOW he looked so good!! the smokey taupe eyeshadow was back which i love; it’s kind of his signature look and i adore it. i loved seeing him get ready while casually on the phone with alec. i wish we could have seen a little more of it, with him selecting a piece of jewelry or a necklace, but this was great, too.
that shirt looks amazing on him. my favorite part is always how much you can’t quite place him in a specific period of time by his clothes. like the stuff he wears isn’t altogether vintage, but nor is it entirely modern. it’s just kind of…a step outside of time entirely, which i think suits him perfectly.
Hey sorry hope you don't mind me saying this but have you ever thoight about getting a patreon for your writing stuff, I don't know if it would work for you or be your thing but I thought I'd suggest that you get one just in case. Like for your writing stuff. I don't know how it would work but I just wanted to throw the idea out there for you in case it could help with money maybe. Ok yeah that's it bye
Patreon isn’t right for Evil Supply Co. ramblings. I’m a huge – HUGE – fan of the idea of micropayments to support folk creating things, and I do personally use Patreon to support other folks – its a great platform.
The next step for ESC (probably next year, the rest of this year is dedicated to polishing up shirts, mugs, etc.) will be to launch the blog, then launch ebook versions of the stories and rambles.
Or possibly a subscription service that gets you early access – Mister Ghost customers get a copy of our newspaper and so get stories months earlier than they appear on social media.
There will always be a free tier (the blog, social media). This is really important to me (I’ve been mega-broke and in need of monster stories).
A good chunk of 2018′s goal is to find the right balance – there are some black hearts who love Evil Supply Co. stories but we don’t sell anything that fits into their needs/wants (anyone unsure of this theory versus their own needs/wants are invited to browse the store).
sooo my coworkers were trash talking my second cousin today without knowing we were related even tho we have the same last name, so i was like “uhm, she’s my second cousin” and you should have seen the look on their faces lmao they really panicked so hard until i told them that i don’t like her either
so they continued trash talking her and they told me that she wore a pink superman shirt to an important meeting
frederick! it seems like you'll be donning a shirt, shorts and sandals and wielding deadly shells in askr for a while. how do you feel knowing you'll be pulled from ylisse again except with considerably less armour to protect you? (just... check the datamines from reddit)
“…Exposed. Vulnerable. Humiliated. All good words to describe my current state of mind, I believe, but none can quite compare to the feeling of relief that these Outrealmers didn’t put me into those tiny Brand of the Exalt shorts that Lord Chrom was forced to wear in the Hotrealms. I did mean what I said when I mentioned that my derriere was unworthy to don them, but I also believe that they were a size or two too small. Putting them on would be tantamount to… streaking. Heavens help me.”
“In any case, I shall do my best to continue to protect the royal family of Ylisse to the best of my abilities, tossing my… er, seashells with only the truest of aim. No doubt Gaius, Robin, and Lady Tiki shall be doing the same and–”
“Good stranger, I am not. The sooner I am back in my armour, the better.”
First off, don’t stress about it!!! It’s completely normal. Secondly exfoliate like crazyyy, buy a good body brush with a longer handle and use a mild exfoliant with it ever shower. If you have long hair, when you wash it try not the get shampoo and conditioner residue down your back, but if you do make sure you wash it all off. Moisturize regularly too and stay hydrated. Don’t wear the same shirt (or bra if applicable) for too long and try washing your tops as often as you can. Change out of gym clothes right after you work out aswell.
Random things fandom has taught me about the UK/US divide -
They don’t have fortnights. Even when the flow of a sentence would be so much better for it.
They do have pants. Except they’re outer not underclothes and sometimes I bash out a fic and later realise readers must think these characters did it in their tighty whiteys. Oops.
Even worse, vests (waistcoats) go on top too and the word ‘wife-beater’ is just not conducive to romance in my mind. Cue much linguistic wrangling to avoid 50 appearances of ‘shirt / under shirt’.
Nobody’s popping paracetamol. Instead you’ve got to try to remember how to spell acetaminophen.
They don’t have Lemsip or Strepsils either. I don’t know how anyone makes it through cold and flu season. (Apparently the closest equivalents are Theraflu and Cepacol.)
People expect their flats to come equipped with a fridge, but are happy to use a communal washing machine. (Like being a student forever… D:) Machines are bigger than in the UK, use way more water, the detergents are totally different and some places have actual bans on outdoor washing lines. Their washing machines aren’t living longer with Calgon either - that’s a bath and beauty brand across the pond!
Electric kettles are not ubiquitous. Some people actually make coffee / tea in the microwave. If that’s not proof it’s bizarro land, I don’t know what is.
A bailiff is someone who provides security in a courtroom - not a guy who bangs on your door first thing in the morning to demand you pay your debts.
I don’t even know where to start with the differences in school / university life. I think Kevin Bridges summed up the gist of it. xD
…and there are so many more still to be learned. At least until I settle back into a Brit fandom and return to wasting time researching suitably esoteric details!
Hey since I saw an artist I have a ton of respect for just got sent hate for “catering to fat fetishists” aka “draws fat people presented as beutifull and loveable and sexy”, and since I draw similar stuff; Friendly reminder that I am fucking fat as fuck and fat people are allowed to create art where we depict ourselves as beutifull and desirable. Because we are. And if some fucko wanna give me guff about “you aren’t That fat!” Pls know that I am actually so fat I cant wear the standard work uniform for my fucking jobb (the t-shirt in this photo is not part of the uniform I can’t button it under my apron), and most employers I’ve had thinks I can fit in some tiny ass size 60 chef shirt.
So like, keep your ideas about what kinda art fat people is allowed to create and consume to yourself. Okay?
In this post I want to give a list of reasons why Twincer is my prime suspect as AD. I know a lot of these ‘clues’ come from interviews, but they’re still really convincing for me at least. I’ve definitely missed some of the clues from within the show because they’re not as easy to spot - we need to know for sure if Twincer is happening, then we can dig further. (The fun won’t instantly stop once the finale airs.) But for now, enjoy these, and at the end, I give my theory as to the motive.
Please note: none of this is overly new. This is just the summation of everything we’ve been talking about on my blog for the past couple months. I wanted to put all the ideas into one post, rather than 31529 mini posts scattered here and there. I will be updating this as we find more.
The famous airport scene from 715. We all already think it’s weird that "Spencer" asked Ezra to not tell anyone he saw her there with Wren. What’s weirder, is the fact that Wren and “Spencer” were arguing. Amongst muffle, I heard Spencer say "stop calling me that" (let me know if you heard differently). Did Wren have a slip-of-the-tongue moment and call her Spencer rather than the twin’s real name?
Dr. Cochran’s story is very telling. We all already know the ambiguous implication that Mary had more than two babies, because Dr. Cochran said he dealt with “two of Mary’s babies”. What’s more interesting is the second baby he dealt with. The first baby (Charlotte) he gave to Jessica. He said that the second baby that he delivered was placed in family county services. This could not have been Spencer, since Spencer was delivered to Veronica within 5 minutes of birth. So, who was that second baby that was placed in family services? I believe it was Spencer’s twin. Why? Dr Cochran referred to that second baby as “underweight but tenacious” - lo and behold, the next episode, Toby calls Spencer tenacious. This was the writers foreshadowing the similarities between this second baby, and Spencer. Twins.
We all know Hanna’s ‘dream’ in 701. It makes no sense that Hanna was able to dream ‘Spencer’ saying the name A.D. since Hanna was kidnapped before these initials were even revealed. Perhaps Hanna was visited by Twincer; the one holding her captive.
A.D. needs to stand for something. Spencer’s twin could literally have the initials A.D., since we know she would be Mary Drake’s child. Her first name would start with A and the D would stand for Drake.
Brendan and Ian both confessed to being confused by the identity of A.D. They needed the backstory to understand it. Is that because they had no idea who has the name “Alex Drake” (for example) ?
Tyler said before 7B aired that “you’ve never met AD. You kind of have. You’ll know what I mean”. This can be interpreted in two ways: you’ve never met Twincer but since you know Spencer, you kind of know who AD is. Or. You’ve seen Twincer over the years, but thought it was Spencer. Either way, Tyler’s comment screams twin-theory to me. This could apply to any twin theory, but in this context, I’m using it for Spencer.
Ian said (0:57) that “fans will be satisfied to a point. Right when it seems it’s gonna be really great, it might do a little [downwards hand motion]”…. That cheeky smile on Ian’s face when he said “it seems it’s gonna be really great”… what could be greater than a liar being AD? Ian could be referring to the fact that they initially show us Troian under the hoodie, making us think Spencer is AD. Then, after commercial break, they will reveal it’s just her twin, hence the “it might do a little [downwards hand motion]”. We will be satisfied to a point, he said. It’ll start off amazing by thinking it’s Spencer, oh wait, it’s another twin.
Ashley said (0:14) that she didn’t even know the A.D. reveal is possible. Because she did not expect a second pair of twins to come along?
“It’s like there are two of you living in this house. You, and you’re evil twin, and we’re not sure who’s coming down to breakfast". said Veronica to Spencer in 423. Foreshadowing at it’s finest.
Spencer doesn’t remember this flashback. Was it her twin? And oh how coincidental, that the writers tell us a time Spencer doesn’t remember, in the same scene Veronica makes the above comment about Spencer’s “evil twin”.
“Where are they?” said Mary as she entered the Hastings house (flashback from 717). Who is they? The twins? She proceeded to say that Spencer is the only good thing she’s ever made. Maybe Mary knows Spencer’s twin is evil, and is neglecting her.
“You look very much like your sister. Almost like twins”. said Mary to Spencer in 701. The writers wanted us to think that Mary was talking about Spencer and Melissa, since Mary was holding a picture of the half-sisters. But, were the writers, and therefore Mary, hinting towards Twincer? Is Mary being blackmailed/forced (by Peter?) to keep quiet on Twincer, and she had a slip-of-the-tongue moment here?
Marlene is very aware of the Twincer theories. Back in 2014 she said that Troian sent her an online fan theory regarding Spencer having a twin who is A. Marlene was blown away by it and she thought it was a very well thought out plan with detailed evidence across the series. Watch from 1:35. Whilst you may be saying “there’s NO WAY Marlene spoilt her own show’s ending in an interview!!” - I feel like she had no idea the show would go on for 7 seasons, and once they got renewed, she panicked. “Shit, we need a new Uber A. Let’s go with that brilliant fan theory Troian sent me”. She probably regrets making this interview now. You can tell her passion for Twincer in this interview. She talks so damn highly of it.
Marlene has said that the person who plays A.D. had known for a while. We know that Marlene told Troian the entire ending of the show years in advance. “Just like I had story time with Marlene, you all now get story time with Pretty Little Liars” said Troian.
The girl in the coffin in the opening has the exact same black puffy shirt as Spencer.
Why does it seem that A.D. is always going after the Hastings? Why shoot Spencer, out of all the liars? Why demand Aria to plant the audio device in the Hastings? Why not ruin the Marin household? The jealous twin wants her ungrateful sister dead, hence the shooting, and the jealous daughter is angry she never got adopted. Too much of the story is Hastings-oriented.
“They’re all some pretty. Good. Theories.” Was Janel’s response to being asked about the Spencer-twin theories. (22:20)
And, I’ll just leave this here. Good one @prettylittlesessions !
“Spencer’s” weird comments in 718. In 718 “Spencer” says to Toby “you know what its like to be the outsider. Removed from friends and family”. What made her say this? Nothing was said or done in 718 to prompt our Spencer to say this.
Keegan said there are no more Spoby kisses in 7B. “I can honestly say that there is not another Spoby kiss.” Yet - there was one in 718. Either Keegan lied, or that was Spencer’s twin. (10:15)
“It’s somebody you have seen.” says Marlene in regards to who AD is. Was she talking about the Spoby kiss in 710, which Twincer referred to in 718 when she kissed Toby again? Marlene was very careful to avoid saying “it’s someone you KNOW”. We don't “know” Twincer. But, we have seen her.
“That’s not the Spencer I know” said Toby in 718. Writers are foreshadowing.
Setting all this aside, I want to add my theory on the backstory and motive:
Twincer, who’s name is A_____ Drake, was born in Radley, as Dr. Cochran told us in 7A.
Twincer was raised in Radley - not because she needed to be at a psychological hospital, but as a form of daycare, because Mary was deemed an unfit mother, and also she kept Twincer a secret from Peter… he already hated her (to the point of planning her murder, later on) enough for having one baby together, imagine Peter’s reaction to having twins.
There, Twincer met and bonded with her sister Charlotte. Charlotte became Twincer’s only friend. (Twincer might even be Bethany, since we already know of this bond between Bethany and Charlotte, and how Bethany was drawing Charles being taken away by a monster. But for this theory, let’s just forget Bethany for a second.)
When Mona came to Radley and started telling Charlotte about everything she did to her sister, Charlotte and Twincer wanted to play. They wanted a turn at harassing Spencer and her friends.
For Charlotte, as we know, it was the feeling of finally succeeding at something in life that made the game her drug. For Twincer, it was something far darker.
Harassing Aria, Hanna, Emily and Alison is all about driving a wedge between the girls. Twincer wants to break up the girls. Turn them against each other. Hopefully by throwing fire at the girls, they will break up, ultimately, to ruin Spencer’s life. Again, jealousy. Twincer’s plan is backfiring because it’s exactly A’s threats that makes Spencer say “we need each other more than ever” and “always stick together”. The writers keep making the point of SPENCER being the one to make the comments about “always” sticking together. Twincer cannot break Spencer and her bitches. This is fueling Twincer’s anger. Nothing is working.
That’s why AD/Twincer recently shot Spencer. “If I can’t break the girls up to ruin Spencer’s life, why not just become Spencer?” Twincer shot Spencer in an attempt to assume her identity and squeeze her way into the loving friendship group that she could never crack. “These girls are so loyal to each other… they don’t even break up after even my threats. Damn, I want to be a part of this. It’s my turn to live a happy life. You had your turn Spencer.”
Note: I do not believe that AD has been operating since season 1. Mona’s time as A is completely independent from Charlotte and Twincer’s story. Mona started the game, and now someone is ending it, and she wants to know who. Charlotte and Twincer are their own duo; their own A-team, which stemmed as a result of Mona coming to Radley. Charlotte revealed herself - next up in the A team is Twincer, who is carrying on the game she once played with her sister.
so here’s the thing: n o n e of this was planned. it was amazing, hilarious, ridiculous kismet.
mango’s had his birthday recently, and so i brought his birthday present with me to phxcon. part of the present was a pair of jensen’s underbears (i think the text i sent mango right after jib was, “we’re close enough that it’s not weird if i buy u underwear right????”) bc i thought that was hilarious from jib and mango is a huge jensen fan and dean!boy. so the original joke was just that mango could have the bear underwear. i also got him a second pair in orange, bc orange is his fav colour. this was as far as i thought this would go.
so i get into phoenix thursday night and give mango his present. we didn’t know there were cockles photo ops until friday afternoon when we saw hard tickets for sale. i distinctly remember being bummed that my hometown con had cockles photo ops for sale online but phxcon, the one i was actually going to, did not. but obviously once i saw they were available, like. THERE WAS ONLY ONE CHOICE. so after deciding it was completely financially irresponsible when we have no money, i bought the op.
i can’t remember when it occurred to us that we had both the underbears and a pair of lucky orange underwear for misha in our hotel room. we wanted to do something fun and funny for the op, and cracked ourselves up at the idea. but we were also aware that it could be, you know, kind of sort of maybe intensely uncomfortable to be like (a) i know what underwear u were wearing and (b) here i brought pairs of them for you to further laugh over. i have a T E R R I B L E akdslkjkas embarrassment squick, so we didn’t want to do anything that made us uncomfortable, and we definitely didn’t want to do anything that would make misha or jensen uncomfortable. we wanted them to have fun with us and play around with us.
we ran our idea passed our roomie, who has some good con experience, to see if she thought it would fly or not. we agreed on judging our plan based on their mood on the day and asking them if they felt comfortable enough to do it was the best course of action, with a back-up plan ready to go immediately just in case, so j+m knew we were serious that they could totally pass on it if it was weird. CONSENT AND SAFE SPACE. we were hella concerned about this.
