i mean i've done this bit but to what end i ask you

how to do prom on a budget

Because not everyone can afford to spend a ridiculous amount of money on one high school dance, but that absolutely does not mean that you can’t enjoy your evening to the fullest. 

  • Your prom dress definitely does not have to cost several hundred dollars. Amazon.com has some really nice formal dresses, and most of them are in the $50-100 range! (I know there are other websites specifically for discount prom dresses, but in my experience Amazon has better quality and lower prices. Plus prime shipping can be a lifesaver if you’re in a rush.)
  • And if fifty bucks is still out of your price range (and I know that it is for a lot of people), check your local thrift stores. Second-hand prom dresses sell for a fraction of their original price, and they’ve usually only been worn once or twice. Seriously, I got my first prom dress at a thrift store; it was a very pretty, very well-made dress, and I payed $15 for it. Check. Thrift. Stores. 
  • Or, if you just don’t like second-hand clothes or if you couldn’t find anything good in the thrift stores, check Ross or a similar store. (Ross is just what we have in my hometown.) They usually stock some formal dresses around prom season, and they’re almost all in the $20-30 range. I’ve gone to formal events in dresses from Ross before, and they hold up really well and look great in pictures.
  • All of the stores I just mentioned are also really good places to get shoes, jewelry, ect. to go with your dress. Even stores like Walmart and Target might be good places to look for shoes, bags, and other accessories. And definitely check your own wardrobe – you might already own stuff that will look good with your dress. (I’ve worn the same pair of heels to, like, three different proms at this point tbh.) 
  • Get a dress that fits you well without alterations. Seriously, tailors are so pricey – you’ll probably end up paying several times more for alterations than you did for the dress itself. You’ll save yourself a lot of money if you just buy a dress that already fits and looks good. 
  • Do your own hair and makeup. There are approximately two billion “prom hair and makeup” tutorials on YouTube – find one that you like and practice it a couple of times before the big night. 
  • And if you aren’t confident enough to do it yourself, call in a friend for help. I’m totally useless when it comes to hair, but my best friend is a hair genius. We would always get ready for dances together, and we’d do a trade-off; she’d do my hair for me, and I’d help her with her makeup, and then we’d both go to the dance looking amazing. It’s a good system, and makes getting ready a lot more fun.
  • Or, if you don’t want to do your own makeup and don’t have a friend you can ask, a lot of department stores that have makeup counters (Macy’s, Belk, ect.) will do free makeovers, even if you don’t buy any of the products! I had a friend in high school who always got her makeup done at Belk for school dances. I don’t like trusting a stranger to do my makeup, but it is an option if you want to get it done professionally without spending a lot of money. (MAC and Sephora both do “free” makeovers, but only if you make a $50 purchase first, so probably not the best option if you’re trying to save money. Always make sure that the makeover service really is free before you sit down in the makeup chair.)
  • Also, you absolutely do not have to wear dramatic makeup or complicated hairstyles to prom if you don’t want to. If bold makeup isn’t your thing, you can just do mascara and a little bit of lip gloss. If you don’t want to spend two hours on your hair, just wear it down, or pin it up in a really simple bun, or whatever works for you. You don’t even have to wear a dress if you don’t want to – if renting a tux is more your speed, then rent a tux. Feeling comfortable and confident in how you look is more important than following trends.

I've seen 3 way of interpreting the color cover: Death (obviously with how the chapter ended), Loss of Virginity (her offer to Kaneki when he's ready and /or considering sex as a way to get him to stay, and flowers used in poems and literature as a symbol of a young woman's virginity, lastly (and least likely to me) pregnancy (flowers also meaning new life, the red either meaning loss virginity or childbirth going along with Touka offer of sex resulting in a One Eyed Prince/Princess)

do u think this chapter is a death flag for touka?

do you think the blood splatter on the colour page might be hinting that mutsuki might stab touka with one of her knives or something?

Idk if anyone asked this before, but there’s been death flags already marked on touka from the latest chapter and I just want to know you’re opinion and what you think. Considering how the chapter ended, I’m really worried and concerned for her.

Hi! So according to the colored page of latest chapter. I guess you’ve seen the 3 possibilities of what might happen to Touka. I would like to hear what you think about it. I highly doubt that she would die, Ishida sensei doesn’t kill characters lightly especially if it doesn’t serve the story (which I think is applied on Touka right now). Also her expression in the picture doesn’t imply bad thing happening, but more like she’s happy? I mean even if she were to die I don’t think it will be now..

Or pregnancy.

Dude the stain on toukas stomach kinda looks like a ukaku kagune. What if the color page is implying pregnancy?

rebeccastarlight: The blood splatter on the cover page it also looks like she’s going to die from childbirth

I wasn’t really a believer of the cover page implying that Touka became pregnant, but I recently saw a reddit post about it. [You can probably find it on the front page.] So anyways, it talked about the poem Ishida made a year ago, “Her womb smelled like it was burnt”. Bad sign already, but if you go through the translated lyrics its even worse. It also straightforwardly says the children meant to be born, had died. Do you think that relates to whats happening now? ItAlsoWouldLeadToParallelling 

Wow, this is a really popular question, huh? Well, really it’s two and a half questions: 1) Will Touka die next chapter? 2) Will Touka get pregnant? 2.5) Will it end tragically? But since they’re all related to the cover picture, I’ll answer them all here before saying what I think is going to happen.

Q: Will Touka die next chapter?

A: No way Jose. If I’ve learnt anything from all that I’ve ever read, watched or played, it’s that female deuteragonists are IMMORTAL. Even more so than protagonists on some occasions. Don’t worry about the death flags, because this arc will be a parallel of the original Anteiku Raid arc, and you know who had a ton of death flags back then and who Touka has been paralleling since the start of :re? Old man Yoshimura! Who, despite it all, is still alive (if not kickin’). Touka won’t die - it’s far more likely that she’s going to get captured like her predecessor, probably as bait for Kaneki. 

Q: Will Touka get pregnant, and will it end in tragedy?

A: Unlikely. That would require a 9-month timeskip to pay off, and things are way too hectic in the story right now to allow for something like that. The alternative would be that it’s foreshadowing for the epilogue, but it seems a bit strange to do that so early on and before Kaneki and Touka have even done the deed. It’s also not something that really needs to be foreshadowed because it would be part of the denouement rather than the actual plot. I don’t think it’s ukaku kagune since Ishida always draws blood with artistic flair in his colour art, and the drops over her breasts are unmistakably blood. As for the flowers, those are Kaneki’s signature flower, sweet olives, and they represent him.

Where the stillbirth/death in childbirth theories are concerned, I really doubt Ishida would kill off Touka so needlessly in the story’s epilogue of all places, and killing the baby would be equally pointless as we’ve seen Kuzen and Ukina (moar parallels) manage it. As one of these anons has already said, Ishida always has a point to his tragedy; he wouldn’t just throw either of those things in at the story’s conclusion for the sake of squeezing our tear ducts, especially since it would have nothing to do with the plotline of Tokyo Ghoul and, again, an epilogue is supposed to unwind tension rather than wrack it up.

What I think is going to happen

I think the blood on her stomach is indicative of a wound inflicted by Mutsuki. But it’s not just going to be any wound that’ll regenerate in a week - I think that out of jealousy, Mutsuki is going to damage Touka’s womb beyond repair. Since Ghouls have high-speed regenerative abilities, the only way to ensure that the womb won’t grow back would be to tear it out of her body, or maybe even eat it (we’ve already seen Mutsuki feed from bodies, and it could serve to parallel Ayato eating her kakuhou in the original series). Sexual mutilation would fit Mutsuki’s parallels with Torso and Nutcracker, and Kaneki and Touka talking about sex foreshadows that specific calamity more than a general death - especially since we’ve seen how good Touka is with kids in Ch 120. It also allows the aforementioned poem to fit in -  “The children who were meant to be born, died” - referring to Touka’s ability to reproduce being robbed from her. 

So I think sad times are ahead for Touka, but she will live on. And isn’t Hinami kind of her and Kaneki’s kid already?

hello! i don't think i've requested this before (please forgive me if i have!!), but could i request a sort of "friends to lovers" au with joshua from svt? thank you so much for your time!

find friends - to - lover!seungcheol (here)

  • you and joshua met at summer camp in middle school because you two were the only kids who actually read books on the bus ride to and from the camp ground
  • and literally all the other kids spent the time playing games or shouting but nope. you and joshua sat by each other, silently, reading
  • and you two,,,,,,just kinda naturally became a duo,,,,,,,like you were always partners for sporting events and helped each other during arts and crafts
  • and it was cute,,,,,,,,all the counselors thought you guys were adorable and the other kids would call you the shy couple but you and joshua,,,,like,,,,,,,you just became inseparable
  • and throughout the years you supported each other as friends until you know,,,,,,you guys started to come out of being shy and stuff and funnily enough you and joshua got into the habit of being like sorta competitive when it came to school
  • and you guys just got inside jokes about out-doing the other person,,,,but like all in good fun??? never seriously or in a mean way
  • you also gossip with each other like,,,,people see you and josh and are like woW such diligent, polite students but LOL you and him have your fair share of savageness
  • but it’s totally a bestfriend thing where you meet up to get coffee to study but in reality you spend time quizzing each other and complaining about shitty professors while also reminiscing about the past 
  • “joshua remember when you got 100 on our first chem quiz as freshmen.” 
  • “yeah, what about-”
  • “remember i got 103 because i did the extra credit (—:”
  • “,,,,,,are you really bringing that up? do i have to remind you of what else happened to us as freshmen? mainly what happened between you and that hoshi ki-”
  • “oK JOSHUA SH”
  • but as much as you’re jokingly being sarcastic with each other you truly care about each other and ,,,,,that’s why when joshua tells you he’s got extended family coming over,,,,and they’ve literally not let it go about him not being in a relationship and so,,,,,,,,if you could pleaSE just fake date him for this dinner,,,,,,,
  • you say yes,,,,because how can you say no???
  • only problem is the minute you show up the hongs are all like fiNALLY YOU Two ARE DAting,,,,,we always knew it would come to this!!!!

  • and for most of the dinner,,,,,,you forget that it’s fake
  • the smiles you and joshua share,,,,,the joking around with his parents,,,,,,,
  • it’s all something you’ve done before but ,,,, when joshua grabs your hand and brings it to his lips as a show for his family,,,,,,you can’t help but feel your heart race
  • and his lips are so warm on your skin
  • and before you know it you’re looking at joshua’s profile,,,,how pretty his eyes are,,,,,how he’s got such handsome features,,,,,, how he’s not the shy boy at camp but ,,,,,,,,, the drop dead gorgeous best friend of yours
  • who probably could date anyone,,,,,but,,,,,choose to have you by his side for this
  • and you’re like arguing with yourself because no,,,no he chose you because you’re his best friend,,,,he could trust you not to mess up in front of his family,,,,,,but then again joshua has other friends,,,,,to ask,,,,,,,,
  • and you can’t help the sinking feeling in your stomach when the dinner ends and joshua’s mom is encouraging him to walk you home
  • and you’re going along the sidewalk in silence and joshua is like “thank you for helping me tonight,,,,,,seriously they wouldn’t get off my back”
  • and you try to strain out a laugh because ahh yeah this was all a joke,,,,,,a lie,,,,,,

tetsuroupapi  asked:

Hey Nina. This is kinda a depressing question, but my prompto cosplay is not going how I want and I have to wear it in two days to my school. But I'm really questioning that because 1. it just looks funky and 2. I don't want people making fun of me. Though it is only the 3rd cosplay I've made, I'm losing my confidence in all of my cosplay plans for the future. I'm a perfectionist and I compare myself to others so much. Since you seem like a really helpful & nice person, how do I deal with this?

First off: I’m very sorry for likely replying after the fact. It’s extremely difficult for me to keep up with my inbox on this site (especially for messages that need a lengthier answer like this), so I don’t always get to respond to inquiries with a quick turn-around. I hope your event at school ended up going well, though!

Secondly: I’m so proud of you for tackling a project outside of your comfort zone to push your skills! It’s important for artists to do that; it’s what helps us grow and learn and most of all, improve. The worst thing you can do as an artist is never push yourself or try new things. It’ll make you stagnate and cause your progress to plateau. So good job for attempting such a difficult costume so early in your cosplay journey!

Thirdly: Yes, Prompto is an extremely challenging costume. It involves a ton of little techniques and details that aren’t apparent at a first glance, and as a result, it’s a project that can get easily overwhelming. (Trust me: been there, done that!) So it’s no wonder you’re feeling frustrated, especially as a novice cosplayer! In which case, my recommendation from here on out would be that the next time you feel frustrated with your progress, take a step back. Evaluate what you don’t like and assess what you need to change in order to be happier with the final results. Don’t like the plaid you chose? Rip it off and find something else. Not happy with the paint job on the shirt? Start over. Take your time and use a different method. Unhappy with your wig styling? Wash out all the hair product and try again. There is no shame in remaking something two, three, four, or more times. Keep remaking it until you’re happy with it, even if it takes 10+ attempts. You will have so much more fun wearing something you’re proud of rather than something you just “settled” for or finished half-heartedly. (Also, on the note of budgeting: budget for this. Set money aside as a “back-up” fund in case things go wrong and you need more materials. That money should always be included in your original estimations! And if you end up not needing it? Cool, treat yourself in the Artist Alley.)

Lastly, and perhaps the most importantly: be more forgiving and let yourself make mistakes. You’re still learning. You’re still teaching yourself these skills. You have just started making costumes. Yaya’s first costumes were not perfect. Kamui’s first armor build was not flawless. Jessica started out with a Pikachu bikini and now she’s making stuff like this. Heck, look, here’s my first real cosplay that I made versus my most recent:

It’s taken me ten years to get this far. Why? Because for a lot of those years, I didn’t push myself. I stayed in my comfort zone. I chose projects that didn’t teach me new skills or force me to work with new materials. It wasn’t until the last 4 years that I’ve really been focused on my craftsmanship and improving my skills, and that is what has allowed me to finish costumes like Sheik, Rapidash, and yes, Prompto too.

I know it’s hard. I know it’s frustrating. But you’re doing the right thing by attempting more difficult projects. Just remember that the frustration is part of the learning process. It’s good to get frustrated because it means you care and want to push yourself harder. It’s good to have high standards for your work because it means you’ll always strive to do your best.

However: it’s important to not let this frustration stunt your growth. Acknowledge your frustration, accept it, and learn to manage it. Take breaks while working. Don’t be afraid to revisit the drawing board. Set the costume aside and practice the skills you need to finish it before making another attempt. And again: forgive yourself for making mistakes. Yaya, Kamui, and Jess make them all the time. And you can bet your patootie I do, too. (Anyone who’s watched my livestreams knows that I mess up quite a bit, haha!)

Whether or not you ended up wearing it to school, I hope your Prompto cosplay turns out in a way that makes you happy! Don’t give up; work smarter, not harder. You’ve got this! <3

Blue lion's home
  • Okok so this is just a thing I was thinking about but just hear me out...
  • In the episode where shiro and the black lion go back to the lion's home planet we learn that it was also zarkon's, which means that there's a very high chance that each of the lions were created on different planets depending on their original paladin.
  • So this is going along the storyline that Keith's the new black paladin since shiro's gone,,
  • Ok so let's say that one night keith and lance get into a REALLY bad fight, which normally would end with the two storming off from each other, only this time the fight was about how lance wanted to return to earth. Keith brings up how lance's family is a part of the universe and if lance leaves voltron than he's almost guaranteeing their demise, to which lance finally cracks and screams at Keith for not knowing what family's like, stating something along the lines of "how would you know how I feel? You're just an orphan!". Keith obviously doesn't take this well and snaps at him some more, eventually leaving to the training deck to let off some steam. Lance realizes what he's said, and what he's done, and has had it. He's been so done with the team treating him like trash he'd finally snapped, and at this point he was over sulking in his room until the next mission, so he packs up. He grabs all his belongings, some rations to last him, and he gets in the blue lion and sneaks out.
  • He turns off the lions tracking system and they fly aimlessly for a bit until the lion suddenly jolts forward and goes into hyper speed, until they reach a water planet. For a moment lance has hopes that it's the earth but at a closer look he realizes it's not and continues to lay back as the lion takes him to his "destination". Another couple of minutes pass and they hit the surface of the water, quickly plunging deeper. Lance begins to freak out and does his best to stop the lion but it's no use.
  • Before he has a moment to process what's happening they're in an underwater cave, with at further inspection seems to be highly man-made. They finally turn a corner to be greeted with a unbelievably high tech, airtight room, where blue goes into the middle pad and shuts down, leaving lance alone. Scared and confused, he exits the lion to explore, and finds a door, or a gate. With a bit of force he opens it, to find himself in a large hallway, once again filled with water, only this time with the addition of merpeople, who seem to be just as confused as he is, just for a different reason.
  • One notices him by the door in his paladin armour and asks him if he is the blue paladin, and remembering his last confrontation he's hesitant. Nonetheless the merman puts two and two together and takes him to their king. The king's ecstatic that the blue lion has returned and reveals that this was the planet and colony that built the blue lion, and this was the home of the previous paladin. Lance tells the king what he had done and asks why the lion had brought him there, to which the king suddenly grows somber. He tells lance about the old paladin, and how she often has lashed out on the team, and in return became very untrusting and unstable. Due to this, to calm her down the blue lion would bring her here if she was ever in trouble of herself.
  • Lance takes a moment to think about the new knowledge he was given, and remembers how blue brought him here because of her instincts, and how she knew he wasn't ok even though he had not. The king then continued, stating that the paladin was far more unstable than anyone had ever thought or knew, and one night, the lion returned. When the guards entered the lion to see why it had returned, they found the paladin's corpse inside, the cause of her death being herself. Lance suddenly becomes unbelievably worried, wondering if he would one day follow in her footsteps.
  • The King notices lance's sudden worry, and continued. "The blue lion always chose the most compassionate to be her paladin. She never chose the best leader, or the best fighter, but she couldn't stand a paladin who worked solo, this usually resulting in the blue paladin to be the most well rounded. In its own sense that has both good and bad quirks, but you must learn that that doesn't make you any worse than your teammates, if anything that makes you more valuable." Lance takes this to heart and whenever he's not feeling 100% he'll head over to the planet to talk things out.
  • There's a bunch more stuff I was thinking about, like a prince or someone who works in the castle gaining a liking for lance, which is greeted mutually, creating a jealous keith. There could be partial alteans on the planet, like part mermaid, part altean, or maybe very distant strands of the species in them, since that planet did create the blue lion, and there'd probably be some of Alfor's people there back 10,000 years ago, giving coran and allura hope. I could go on and on it's just been a thing I've been thinking...

  • they tried to get noodle to eat brussels sprouts when she was little and they went on a health kick. she didn’t understand what they were called and thought they were called russel sprouts. to this day brussels sprouts are referred to as russel sprouts by everyone in the band and this is just an accepted phrase now. whenever they pass the produce aisle someone inevitably yells “hey russel!” and holds up a brussels sprout when he looks over (at least, 2d and noodle do. murdoc tends to just chuck a brussels sprout at russ’s head from all the way across the aisle and then pretend it wasn’t him.) 
  • they all love the beatles so much. they tend to play beatles songs to warm up before practice; can’t buy me love was a favorite of noodle’s when she was little because 2d would dance with her and swing her around during the instrumental part while they sang. i want to hold your hand is also a popular one because during the bridge — “and when i touch you i feel happy inside” — 2d and noodle go all fake-sentimental and dramatically sigh and swoon all over the room. usually they sing to russ and get him to clasp their hands during this part or stroke murdoc’s face dramatically (he always pushes them away but he’s laughing.) one of the first songs murdoc learned was blackbird and he tends to play it to himself in his room when he’s alone, singing quietly. he taught it to noodle when she was really young and caught him singing it and even now, sometimes they’ll sit in the studio with their guitars singing blackbird together — it’s their thing.

Minuet, Part II

Part I | Part II | Part III

Twisting in his grasp, Rose cranes her neck to look at him, finally, and there he is, all furrowed brow and tight mouth and eyes glittering with anger, and god, if she wasn’t so irritated with him right now, she just might kiss him.

“That’s what you were going to do, isn’t it?” she asks instead.

***

Eyes widening, the Doctor only has a moment to let his mouth drop open in surprise before another gentleman steps in—time to change dance partners. Rose slips into position with the newcomer without so much as a blink or even a glance in the Doctor’s direction, never faltering in her rhythm; a quick peek at the Doctor moments later tells her that he has allowed himself to be swept up in the tide of dancers, sidling up to his new partner across the room.

Rose turns away, swirling in her partner’s arms, but she can feel the eyes of the Doctor boring into her. She shivers despite the summer heat.

“That’s beside the point,” he whispers when they meet again, touching palm-to-palm first with one hand, then the other. “I’m a Time Lord.”

“Really? First I’ve heard of it,” Rose replies drily.

“I’ve been doing this for a long time, Rose. A very long time. I understand the risks.”

Rose rolls her eyes. “And stupid apes don’t.”

At least the Doctor has the decency to flinch at those words. “That isn’t what I meant.”

“Of course it is,” Rose sighs, and they both step back, granting a berth for other dancers to flit gracefully between them. “After all,” Rose continues when they reconnect, hands clasped, “I’m hardly one of the most accomplished women who ever lived, am I?”

Problematic reactions to words that actually came out of Harry Styles’ face

So last night I made a post called ‘THINGS THAT HARRY STYLES HAS ACTUALLY SAID’…which got a lot of positive reactions and notes, along with some pretty aggressive reactions which I feel need addressing. There was a sudden onslaught of messages, so at first I was like 

So I started with a very brash anon who decided to tell me all the things that ‘HARRY HAS DONE’ and at first I was like ‘cool, another fan of all caps,’ then I read it and went through some more messages and was like 

The comments that other people were publishing were a bit baffling, and some were downright worrisome. Here’s a random sample:  

Hello there, @narrymusings, and thank you for starting this litany of comments I’m about to address.

Ah yes, that interview. It was indeed upsetting.

But mostly because after the only time Harry has ever addressed the Larry rumours he was crying afterwards

I agree, I do not dictate how anyone deals with rumours, but given that this denial ended in tears I’m going to go ahead and comment that it appears to have been handled pretty badly. 

Well spotted, @sobadbutshedoesitsowell

They were probably still stuck on their recent media training as to how to answer any and all questions

So anyone who looks at Louis must be in love with him? Sounds about right. I’m being totally serious. Look at him. Who wouldn’t stare at Louis? Oh and I used that gif because I really wanted to. 

@scorpyon51 First of all, people with Haylor manips as their profile picture shouldn’t throw stones in glass houses.

Definitely someone deeply contemplating how to make a joke out of this and not at all whether or not to answer honestly.

Nice one. You know who probably found that ‘joke’ HIL-ARIOUS?

Nouis. Because Nouis is real now. 

They also probably find this hilarious:

So funny he forgot to laugh…

But yeah, you’re right. People shouldn’t assume anything. I’m sure Harry’s just being Harry, keepin us all on our toes. He shouldn’t have to identify as anything. I’m just merely pointing out that he has actually verbally himself indicated through words coming out of his face that he is neither bisexual nor bothered about the gender of a partner. 

@caysbrizzle I completely agree with you and thank you for reminding everyone to be respectful. But…

Awkward because I can’t tell which side of the argument you’re angling. This is exactly what I’m saying but in different words. People take Harry seriously when it’s convenient and dismiss what he’s saying when it doesn’t fit their fixed ideas of who Harry Styles is. Like I said, you’re right - we should be respectful that none of us fucking know him or what his actual story is. I’m merely pointing out that he hasn’t used gendered pronouns when it comes to his answers to questions about what he looks for in a girl or in his own songs in quite awhile, and when he did use female pronouns he went out of his way to make sure everyone knows that it wasn’t about a girl

Got it, thanks H.

Okay, not about you. Nice of you to clarify.

WE GET IT. 

‘So, Harry…Is “Perfect” about Taylor? And who is Olivia?’ -(insert your interviewer of choice)

I’M SO GLAD YOU BROUGHT UP TATTOOS @goldustlovely ! It’s actually one of my favourite topics. I mean, I literally cannot believe that the fans were so insistent that a rose tattoo fits into a nautical theme with a dagger and then Louis effing Tomlinson went and got a GD dagger on his arm in the exact same spot as Harry’s rose. 

“I did it because it’s literally ironic, OKAY?!”

And all the awkward staring at each other? I mean, I know right?

God forbid they gaze at each other too long. Wouldn’t want this to happen again…

And lest you mistake this for me having a sense of humour…don’t.

Next time they have to endure ‘Never Have I Ever’ maybe someone should ask Harry if he’s ever said something repeatedly with no sense of irony and had people claim that he’s just joking (talk about assumptions…)

Oh, and to the anons sending messages too rude, ignorant and non-sensical to even bother replying to…firstly

B.

And finally

Anyway byyyyye, I really want to incorporate this next gif. May have actually built this entire post around it

Oh and in case you wanted some more not-so ambiguous quotes from Louis and Harry here you go: 10 Times Harry Styles And Louis Tomlinson Said Things That Almost No One Took Literally

alcoholinspired  asked:

I've seen your texts on Anders meta tags and found then to be heart endearing, which is great. In one you wrote on how people say he isn't romantic. I think it comes from the feeling of being used as an asset for the Chantry kaboom, like, if you break up with him before the final battle there's little/no hint of it upsetting him, or if you reject his first approach or step back when he asks to move in. That would contribute to say he used Hawke.I would love to see more of your thoughts about him

Hi, thanks for the ask!!

I have two answers for this, the first is the Boring Answer and the second is the Less Boring Answer.

The Boring Answer is that it’s a video game and due to programming and time restraints, you aren’t really going to get a real reaction to something huge (like say, a breakup).  In DAO, for example, if you break up with someone you get a couple of lines and maybe an approval change and then it’s back to normal.  So I don’t think we’re seeing the full picture.

Which leads us to the Less Boring Answer:

The Chantry Boom happens regardless of Hawke’s involvement.  You can refuse to help him and he will still find another way and go forward with his plan.  He does ask for your help because he trusts you, and it will make things easier for him, but if you won’t give it, then he’ll search elsewhere (or go it alone).  Because Hawke’s help isn’t necessary for his plan, (and because he was in love with Hawke long before his plan was even a thing), I think we can scratch the idea that he is only with Hawke because he needs them for this one thing.

Now we’re going to move on to the bit about breaking up with him.  This is actually a complex topic so I’m going to break it down into smaller pieces.

To begin with, Anders is mentally ill, according to Word of God (i.e. the Bioware writers).  When you are mentally ill, you convince yourself of weird things.  Anders, especially, has reason to be paranoid.  He has lived the past two decades of his life being told that mages are bad and that he is bad and that mages cannot ever fall in love because bad things will happen.  He saw first hand what happened to Karl.  Not to mention there’s that whole Justice thing (”I thought with Justice, this part of me was over.”)  He has convinced himself that he is unloveable and that Hawke deserves better.  And when you convince yourself of that, you go through your whole life low-key waiting for everything to fall apart, because of course it will.  You’re prepared for the worst because you’re convinced that the worst is eventually going to happen.  (Source: my own super fun and exciting mentally ill experience!  Whee!)

The way Anders sees it, a breakup is inevitable.  This is all temporary, and he’s enjoying it while it lasts.  This does not mean he’s not in love.  Oh on the contrary, that’s the tragedy of the whole thing.  He puts off getting into the relationship for years because he’s convinced it’s all going to end in flames anyway and he doesn’t want to put Hawke through that.  Finally, when he does realize he can’t ward his own feelings off any longer, he warns Hawke that “This will be a disaster.”  He does not see this ending anyway but badly, because he has thoroughly convinced himself that that is the case.

No wonder he’s not going to be surprised if you break up with him.  As far as he was concerned, that was going to happen anyway.  It was just a matter of when.  The fact that he eventually caves and throws himself into the relationship anyway, when he is convinced it’s going to end in tears, is ultimately proof of his romanticism, not proof against it.  He needs Hawke, even if it’s only going to be for a little while.

Now moving past the mentally ill stuff.

If you break up with him before the final battle, he says something about how he wishes that he had nothing else in his life except for you.  (I’m paraphrasing because I have of course never done this and I only ever saw it in a YouTube video once, so I don’t remember the exact line.)  This is a callback to something he says earlier; “You are the most important thing in my life… but there are some things more important than my life.”  And therein lies the key to understanding Anders’ thought process on this.

When Anders merged with Justice, the idea of the Anders with simple goals in life (”a pretty girl, a decent meal, and the right to shoot lightning at fools”) ceased to be.  He has a higher purpose now, one that he recognizes as being more important than anything that deals with himself on a personal level.  A Hawke, entering a relationship with him, knows this.  Whether or not Hawke chooses to accept this is and love him anyway is of course up to the player– “I know I’ll never be the most important thing in your life”, Hawke says to Anders at endgame if they’re breaking up with him.

Ultimately, that’s where the rub comes in.  I have seen some people who really dislike Anders say that their reasoning is that he straight up tells you that his cause is more important than you.  That’s not what love is about, they say.  And you know, if that’s your view on it, then that’s your view on it, and I’m not here to tell you how to define love.

But really, are Anders’ thoughts on this that far off from what most of us already believe?

My parents were Trekkies and I was raised on a steady diet of Star Trek.  One of the first movies I watched as a kid was Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.  In the final climactic scene, Spock sacrifices himself to save the crew of the Enterprise.  “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few… or the one,” he says to Kirk.  Spock’s sacrifice was made out of love.  So, too, is Anders’– he is giving his life to the cause because yes, it’s more important, and he loves Hawke, oh he loves Hawke fiercely, but Hawke is a part of the world he’s trying to save.

The best gift he can give you is a just world.  The world that everyone deserves– and that you deserve.

And is that not, really, so much more romantic than a bouquet of roses?

TLDR: No, Anders is not visibly distraught if you break up with him at endgame after all you’ve shared.  It’s because he’s been preparing himself for this breakup, both in an unhealthy sense (he’s mentally ill and was convinced this was going to happen the whole time) and in a, well, healthier sense (he knows not everyone is going to view the world the way he does).

And this is why I am a sucker for Handers.  Because here, at this point in the game, Anders, this sensitive man who believes he has given you every reason to turn away, asks if you’ll stay with him.  He is asking you everything here; he knows that he’s now one of the most hated men in Thedas.  He knows that he’s going to be on the run for possibly the rest of his life.  He knows that the road ahead is not easy.  He knows this and he asks you anyway, telling himself the whole time you’ll say no, of course you’re going to say no.  Of course no one would agree to this, of course no one would ever stay with him now–

–and then you say yes, and his whole world lights up.

He’s not alone.

And finally, finally, he accepts that.

anonymous asked:

I just would like to vent my frustration over the loss of both Timeless and Once this week. I feel like I've been punched in the gut. I'm absolutely devastated over timeless. How is it possible that something amazing like timeless gets cancelled but they pick up something like Taken. I mean I know it's a business but I'm angry and bitter.

Like, I am at peace with OUAT ending because it’s an amazing but obviously aging show that has run its natural narrative course and then a bit, had six seasons, and was pretty much at its terminus anyway. In fact, it would be smarter at this point to let canon go gracefully, rather than trying to milk a s7 without its leading lady/emotional center. (And I think they should have planned for six seasons all along and let the fans know in advance that this was the final season so we could prepare/be at peace with it, rather than springing the SURPRISE, THIS IS IT FOR THE SHOW AS YOU KNOW IT! on us a week before the finale – not blaming anyone, but that’s essentially what happened.)

But Timeless??!

It’s a show in its FIRST season, was very well received and reviewed, had an already-devoted fanbase, was an above/average performer once views on all platforms were taken into account (and it had a Timeslot of Death, because really who is still up to watch live at 10pm on a Monday night?) It had a great brot3 (the time team) at its center, and at least three ships that fans loved and which coexisted harmoniously and happily without any hate (Lyatt, Garcy, Riya). It was diverse. It was refreshingly honest. It was fun and didn’t take itself too seriously. It was nowhere near done with the story it had to tell and the opportunities it could explore. In short, IT HAD SO MUCH MORE TO DO.

And NBC canceled it while picking up a cheaper, shittier, in-house production with lower ratings, because… the bottom line, I guess?

If you’re not going to invest in/develop popular shows, even if they start out a little uneven, don’t be surprised when network TV is reduced to (even more of) a barren wasteland that nobody watches, and all the good stuff is only available on premium/paying subscription services. Which obviously is unfair because not everyone can pay to access content, but which has been sort of made the case/forced on the viewing public if network TV can’t move on from its ancient, cumbersome, and not-really-that-informative Nielsen ratings system. Because only a small percentage of the TV-watching population has a box, and because very few people sit down and watch a show live on first airing. In short, the entire model has become obsolete, and good TV is suffering for it.

So basically, the only way this made sense as a business decision was because it was cheaper, in the short term, for NBC to pick up a shittier in-house production. They could absolutely have invested in and grown and expanded Timeless’ already passionate fanbase (I mean, Kripke’s other show is Supernatural, which has been running for 84 years and still has devoted fans… I’m just saying). But nah? There is still a mathematical possibility that somewhere else picks it up, but… yeah, if wishes were horses, and all that.

In short: Fuck ‘em. I hope they step on legos every day for a year.

Kat Distraction

MariChat May 4th: ‘Romeo, Romeo…’

(ao3)


“Do you think the reason why Juliet was so desperate to get away to Mantua was because of her love Romeo? Or because of her need to get away from her overbearing fa-family?”

Marinette looked up from where she sat at her desk to see chat hanging upside down from the rails of her bed.

“Where in the world is this question coming from? Also how did you get there without me noticing?” Sure she could see him being weirdly into Shakespeare (at least the love stories anyway) but to suddenly show up from nowhere and ask a question about it seemed a little much.

“Eh? If it seems too sudden just forget about it.”

She frowned as she studied him. It was a bit hard to tell, with him being upside down and all, but he seemed to be feeling down. It may have looked like a smiley face from her perspective but he was definitely frowning. She nodded to herself. The question must be important to him and that was unquestionably a good enough reason for her to answer it.

Her forehead creased slightly as she thought hard about her answer. “I’m not sure… maybe they both just wanted to get away? I think that they definitely thought it was to be able to love each other in peace though.”

Chat didn’t really look satisfied with that answer. Marinette sighed.

“Look Chat, I’m not really a fan of Romeo and Juliet anyway. I can barely remember the plot as is.”

“I know… I just thought… it might apply a bit to u-I mean me.”

She frowned at how unsure he sounded. Chat was much deeper than she had thought when he had first started showing up, but this was definitely the most uncertain she had ever seen him.

“You want to get away? From your family I mean.” She quickly clarified when he started looking confused.

“Ye-no, I mean I shouldn’t want too.” He confessed. His sad eyes stared into hers. He was also still hanging upside down and it was making her a bit woozy.

Marinette didn’t really know what to make of what he was saying. She felt really out of her depth. But Chat was her friend and she wanted to help. She needed to wipe that look off his face and the best way to do that when she couldn’t think of anything else was a distraction.

“Hey Chat…” She move her face closer to his.

“Y-yes?” He said caught off guard by the shift in tone.

She moved closer and under his watchful eyes pressed her lips gently to his forehead.

“How 'bout we play some games to take your mind off its problems?”

Unfortunately Chat Noir was far more impacted by what she had done than she had expected. He came tumbling down onto her. The impact caused her to fall of her chair as well and ended with both of them sprawled on the floor in a heap. Both felt a wave a deja-vu at the situation. Looking at each other they ended up laughing and both forgot about the heavy conversation they were having.

As Marinette waved him goodbye later in evening, after an intense gaming session, she wondered if she had helped him enough.

“Humans are complicated Marinette. Trust me I would know.” Tikki giggled the small Kwami coming to rest on her shoulder.

“How can you read me so well?” Marinette pouted.

The god of creation laughed. “Come on Marinette let’s get dinner! No need to worry yourself over something that can’t be changed.”

“You’re right Tikki. I just hope Chat will eventually be able to explain to someone what’s wrong.”

With an optimistic prep to her steps Marinette managed to trip down the stairs quicker than usual to eat dinner.

As he headed home Chat sighed. He didn’t even know why he tried to explain his home situation to someone who couldn’t know his secret. He had just wanted her to understand. He shook his head and smiled. It didn’t matter anyway-so long as Marinette was around to cheer him up.

I could use a little advice, if possible. I very much want to get into cosplay, but I don't even know where to begin. There are characters I love, but I don't understand how to convincingly pull off these characters, so have no idea how to choose one. I can't make anything because my skillset doesn't go farther than the most basic repair work, and the premade stuff I've found is pretty expensive. I see makeup tutorials and end up completely baffled, so I'm kind of lost.

Hello there!

First of all, you don’t have to choose a character because you think you can pull it off, regardless of what you mean by that. Want to do an outfit but don’t have sewing skills? You can always learn and practice (or put off the costume until you’ve built up your skills more). Think you don’t look like a character? You don’t have to look like the character. If you want to wear the outfit but don’t look like them, then ignore that. The only time it matter is your personal comfort – if you don’t feel right doing a character you don’t look like, you should let your comfort take priority, but if you don’t want to do a character because you aren’t as thin, attractive, pale, whatever else as them, don’t worry about those things. this isn’t a lookalike contest, it’s cosplay. It’s for fun. 
(Examples of being personally uncomfortable would be things like how I recently did a fem version of a character because I knew I’d be uncomfortable with the fact that I wouldn’t pass as a teenage boy in spandex – still did the character, but I changed some things so I’d be comfortable with it. But if I did cosplay, let’s say, a beefy man like Joseph Joestar, and was comfortable with it and enjoyed it, despite being scrawny, no one should have a problem with that. Your own feelings about your cosplay are what matters. If I did that and someone said something about my size and apparent gender not matching the character’s? That’s not someone I’d want in my life. their opinion doesn’t matter. As long as you aren’t outright being a jerk and harming others, no one has any right to tell you that you are having fun wrong, and you always have the power of the block button if they do.)

The thing with a hobby like cosplay is that we all have to start somewhere. No one is going to go from not being able to sew to pulling out masters-level costumes overnight. Building up a lot of these skills involves a lot of practice and dedication.

That said, you don’t have to make your costumes. You always start somewhere. Are there any characters where you can modify storebought or thrifted items? That’s a great way to get started with cosplay, and you can still dress in costume, but you don’t have to worry about making some complicated. Do you want to learn to sew? Choosing a simple outfit that you can find a pattern for (things like schoolgirl uniforms are great for this) can really help, since it gives you instructions on how to make the item, and you can build up your skills with easier garments and work your way up. If you have money for premade or commissions, that’s great, but if you don’t, you can do a lot on your own for very cheap if you know how to shop sales or can get items at a thrift store. With luck, a good eye for sales, using items from your closet (shoes are the big expense here), and often a little bit of skill (such as dyeing a piece or cutting and rehemming a piece or adding some decoration), you can make an entire cosplay for $15. I’ve done it. 

For building up your skillset, it’s all about practice. Find a very basic makeup tutorial and try following it, step by step. Do it every day, or twice a day, until you master the techniques. Try another one. A lot of tutorials assume that you have at least some basic skills in the area that the tutorial is for, but you can find tutorials that explain every step. For sewing, start with something very simple, like a pillowcase, if you need to. You don’t /need/ these skills, though, unless you /want/ to make your cosplays. Often, however, due to cost and availability (or costumes, of sizes, etc.), you end up needing to make something yourself if you want it at all, or else pay a commissioner. It sounds like making is the path you want to go down, though, and this can include both making from scratch and altering pre-existing items.

It’s hard, but don’t compare yourself to anyone but yourself when it comes to this kind of thing. You just started, you don’t need to be an expert yet. No one was born an expert, which is why things like tutorials exist – people are often more than willing to share their knowledge. If you don’t understand a step in a tutorial, ask. Don’t compare yourself with someone who has been cosplaying for 15 years and works in the costuming industry and has the free time, money, and experience to pull out amazing costume after amazing costume. Do you know what they were doing 15 years ago? Probably starting on their first project, like a simple skirt or a pillowcase or a plush toy. Certainly messing up. Certainly learning from those mistakes as they went. You have the advantage of building on a lot of that knowledge that is now being shared in the community (and so many more materials and resources!), but there’s no substitute for trying something yourself and learning from that. Don’t be afraid to fail. You often learn more from mistakes than from successes. 

As for how to start on costumes, it really helps to take things step by step, a little bit at a time. Look at one item first, rather than the overwhelming whole. Look at one part of that item. Start there. You’ll be far less baffled if you think of it as one small piece, rather than an entire costume. For tutorials, break them down as well. What are they doing in this step, exactly? Can you mimic that? Try it, over and over. 

I also have a Powerpoint on how to choose and plan cosplays here.

Cosplay is a hobby. It should be fun, not an overwhelming stress. I would say to take it slow, choose something simple at first, build up whatever skills you are trying to build (whether that is sewing, armor, makeup, or even bargain shopping), take your time with your projects, and enjoy wearing them, even if they aren’t something that’s going to be winning a contest any time soon. Be proud that you made that. Be proud that you can show off your fandom in that way. Meet new fans. Build up your skills. And keep having fun with it. There’s no wrong way to be a fan.

I hope that helps! :]

I've been thinking a lot about your excellent meta about manipulation and wondering if Raven is playing with those same tools as she figures out what it means for her to be a leader. All the "deciding who lives and dies is your specialty" and "your dad would be so proud" stuff feels like low blows to me/more manipulative than persuasive? Idk. I'd be interested in your take on leader!Raven so far in s4 :)

Thanks for the compliment! Glad you enjoyed my meta on Clarke and manipulation.

I’m glad you asked about Raven! Her being integrated into the Leaders Who Have to Make Hard Decisions Squad was delightfully refreshing to watch as it presented Raven with some character beats and challenges that were categorically different from what she’s faced before.

As far as your question in particular: the quotes you mention are decidedly low blows lol. But I would disagree with you as to their intent. Raven, imo, is one of the least manipulative characters on the show, at least in the interpersonal sense - i.e. she doesn’t often use her knowledge of others’ feelings/weaknesses to influence them even if she can, because she’s an extremely straightforward person. Even in 2x08 when Raven “manipulates” Murphy into coming to the dropship so she can use him as bait, the “manipulation” occurs offscreen, and so we can assume that Raven basically just said, “Murphy we need you at the dropship.” That’s less manipulative and more like just a straight up lie. And even that kind of dishonesty is rare from Raven - she prefers the slap-you-in-the-face form of honest persuasion.

Originally posted by boberly

But Raven’s preference for honesty and straightforwardness is, I think, wonderfully complicated by the fact that Raven is fairly intuitive and empathetic when it comes to other’s feelings. I think she understands a lot about her friend’s feelings and weakness - more than her character normally lets on. The best proof of this is, of course, 3x11. In what I think is the most accurate reading of that episode, ALIE is using Raven’s personal knowledge of all her friend’s triggers and insecurities and weaknesses to pick them off one by one. As we know, ALIE herself doesn’t really understand human emotion, or love. It’s not /ALIE/ who knows how to wheedle Jasper, break Bellamy’s self-loathing exterior, or send Clarke into a frenzy. It’s /Raven/. It’s ALIE using Raven’s knowledge to an end that Raven herself never would.

I think the lines you mention in your question are another reflection of Raven having a well-honed sense of what she can say to hurt her friends in a particular situation. But these barbs she throws at Clarke are not /manipulative/. Instead of using her knowledge of people to manipulate them, like Clarke does, Raven uses it to hurt them when she is frustrated with them and lashing out. In 402 and 403, Raven throws pointed barbs at both Bellamy /and/ Clarke, about their ledership and their past mistakes, but they aren’t integrated with some manipulative attempt to sway them to her side. No, her arguments in favor of her plan for survival are extremely straightforward and evidence-based. These barbs about Clarke’s dad, or “living with [Bellamy’s] mistakes” are a reflection of Raven’s frustration with Bellamy and Clarke when they make what she sees as stupid or short-sighted decisions. Essentially, she’s just saying it to hurt them, and maybe to make them think a little bit about what they’re done. 

To specifically address the line “deciding who lives and dies is your specialty,” I actually think this line is PROOF that Raven is not being manipulative towards Bellamy or Clarke. Raven says this to Clarke in the midst of a conversation where she is trying to convince Clarke to make the list. If Raven were trying to ~manipulate Clarke into making the list, she would have been wayyy less blunt and more coy, maybe saying something like “you can’t guarantee Bellamy is on the list if you haven’t made it,” or “if you don’t make this list, more people could die than have to,” or idk, something that is more of a shaded truth or a lie. As it is, Raven quite literally sees choosing who lives and dies as Clarke’s /job/, and in this scene she’s just reminding her of it - no matter how jarring it is. Tbh, Raven’s straightforwardness is kind of refreshing.

Anyway, this was kind of all over the place, but this is all to say that I really enjoy where they’ve taken Raven in s4 so far. Her brand of leadership was a really new form, very different from how we’ve seen Clarke and Bellamy lead on the ground and a needed counterpoint to their united front. I also love that, even as Raven judged Clarke and Bellamy’s decisions in 402 and previously, she got a taste of the human cost of those kind of decisions in 403. I have never been more engaged by Raven’s arc than I was when they began developing her as leader, showing her make impossible decisions, etc., because I think it opens up completely new ground for her that I want to see continue. She seems to be a bit back into “solving science problem for plot” mode in Becca’s lab, but I think the new wrinkle of her choosing to sacrifice her health in the hopes of using her superbrain to save her people is a great wrinkle to add to the arc that gives Raven a lot of agency, importance, and room for growth and heroism. So all in all, I’m all for Raven stepping up to complete the bravenlarke triumvirate of leadership, tbh!

5 for McKirk? :)

I’m sorry you had to wait so long for this!


McKirk — “Wait a minute. Are you jealous?”


Jim paused outside Bones’ door and took a steadying breath. He was a few minutes early, but he’d been looking forward to this all week and it’s not like Bones had to prepare much for movie night.

“Give me a minute Jim,” Bones called out from his bathroom as soon as the door opened, so Jim crossed the room and sat down on the couch. He didn’t know why his stomach was in knots, but it was probably a combination of the possibility that Bones was naked in the adjacent room and the fact that they hadn’t been alone together since they’d left Yorktown. It was two months but it seemed like an eternity.

Things had been different after Altamid. Bones had been busy, they all had, but somehow Jim couldn’t help but feel like things were changing. Their time alone had given way to time spent as a group, as a family. Jim wouldn’t give that up for the world but he missed just Bones. They way he’d get sometimes when it was late and they were alone and Jim knew every lazy lingering smile was just for him.

But he was here now, and soon they’d dim the lights and settle in and Jim would pick an extra long movie. Long enough for Bones to get sleepy by the end of it and stretch out across the couch with his legs in Jim’s lap. 

Jim smiled and tried to ignore the sound of drawers opening and closing and the sound of clothes being pulled over skin, and he managed to get himself more or less comfortable by the time Bones appeared from behind the partition of his bedroom.

“You’re early,” he smirked.

“Yeah well, I was done and I kinda miss movie night.”

Bones laughed, “Want a drink?”

“Nah I’m good.”

Bones walked up to the couch and flopped down on the opposite end.

“I think I know what I wanna watch,” Jim said, turning to Bones with a satisfied look.

“Great, just gotta wait for Spock.”

“Spock’s coming?” Fuck.

“Yeah, he didn’t have plans and I figured it’d be good for him.”

“Uh, okay.” Jim tried and failed to sound like it was actually okay.

“Are you sure? Cause you don’t sound too pleased.”

“No, it’s great, it’ll be awesome.” Jim realised it was childish but he couldn’t be bothered to hide the disappointment in his voice.

“What the hell Jim?”

“It’s nothing Bones, I know you guys went through something together and I understand that you’re closer now. And that means you wanna spend more time together. That’s fine, I get it.” Jesus stop talking already.

“Wait a minute. Are you jealous?”

“Yes! No— I mean— I’m not jealous no, I want you to spend time with Spock, it’s not that.”

“Then what Jim?”

“Just— fuck Bones, I miss spending time with you, you know… just you.”

Bones looked at him wide-eyed, his mouth opened to speak and his expression shifted to one of understanding just as the chime of the door sounded. Spock.

And just like that the moment was gone. Or maybe it was only gone for Jim, because Bones was on his side of the couch a second later, pressing him into the pillows and kissing him frantically. Jim threaded one hand through Bones’ damp hair and the other landed on his back and pulled him in hard, knowing he was going to have to let go again much too soon.

“Think you can wait a bit longer?” Bones asked breathily as he pulled away, “I promise you I’m all yours after this.”

“I don’t know Bones,” Jim laughed, shaking his head. “We’re definitely gonna have to put Spock in between us, and I’m picking the shortest movie ever made.”

I've seen your ranking, and I wonder why you like Juzo so much ? I can't help but think his redemption doesn't outweight his previous actions. He helped stopping the killing game but that was him fixing something he did and saving someone he cared about, which isn't selflessness. He assaulted people for reasons that were petty or unjustified, so it felt really forced when he saved Naegi. Also, he let Junko end the world because he didn't want Munakata to know he was gay ? Please enlighten me.

Personally, I like Juzo because he’s not supposed to be a selfless or a sweet or softhearted character. If Juzo had stopped the killing game for any of those kinds of reasons, or if dr3 had suddenly tried to play Juzo off as a character who was entirely selfless for everyone’s sake, I’d have been incredibly disappointed. But as it is, Juzo’s character development was one of the few things dr3 managed to do right.

Juzo scores #3 on my personal character ranking because he’s an incredibly well-written and flawed character who is given his own autonomy and has a compelling arc of development. He’s also pretty much the embodiment of the Undying Loyalty trope, something I like in my characters—and even better is that dr3 managed to emphasize that that’s his strength and his weakness at the same time.

hi! so i've been forcing my sister to watch spn for the past few months and she just finished the s12 finale tonight. every time a super heavy destiel moment has happened i get so excited despite having seen them a bunch, but somehow my sister has watched 12 seasons (w/ me explaining all the meta/parallels/etc) and she still thinks Cas and Dean's relationship is platonic/fraternal. i thought for sure after s12 she would see it, and the only reason i wanted her to watch was to discuss it. :(

I mean, loads of people still don’t see it, more do since season 12 than before but there are still a lot who don’t so don’t be too upset because you do and she doesn’t, she’s not alone…

This is why season 13 is most probably going to be a romantic festival of blatant upping the game - precisely for people like her, so as you have seen it already you can just enjoy it when it comes!

I think a lot of people through season 13 are gonna be like…

source: @randomdestielfangirl

I mean - spot the difference! This was a MASSIVE clue for us supposed to be noticing what Mary is noticing…that’s how most of these things work, putting the audience in the position of the other person in the room, seeing it from their POV, as we have done in the past with Sam, but it’s still a bit too subtextual for a lot of people so… they do really need to make it more blatant. Hmm I wonder how? 

Maybe by making Dean tear down his facade at the end of season 12, start to face his own feelings and accept the side of himself that he represses which a large part of why he doesn’t pursue Cas, then have Cas perhaps get separated from him in a shocking and devastating manner to really make it hit home how much he really does love him and realises what he has lost…

Hmmmmm… 

I mean aside from this there’s also a reason why I wrote a long post about how Mary was written and portrayed as Cas’ mother in law all season ;)

Basically yeah, it was more obvious in the text this season and in the way we see others interact with them and see them, Mary is my favourite though as she is brand new to their dynamic and immediately starts treating Cas like a son in law, it’s fantastic. Next season needs to go up a notch though from heavy subtext to text as you say, some people are still oblivious, which I find amazingly blinkered but fine, that’s the way of the world I guess, but yeah, they are definitely off from a good starting point :D

anonymous asked:

May I request a fanfic where Sonic suddenly realizes he's in love with Amy? I've always pictured it happening to him gradually until one day it hits him, "Oh man I love her don't I?" Sorry if you've done something similar before. Thank you for your time!

…. Oh boy! I’m excited! but this is a tough one… I also agree it would take time and come gradually but…

I also believe he’s always falling for her, but that he fights the thought of ever being ‘in love’ with anyone.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Let’s see now… do I start with him being older and coming to a strange thought about being in love with her? Or…

Oh~~~~

I like the Or.

(x) I’m a sucker for Classic Sonamy xD It’s so cute and precious~

Prompt:

Amy walked into her small home just off the side of an ocean, pushing her butt up against the door to close it while she brought in wild ingredients she harvested from a small garden she had planted a ways away.

It had been a long time since she entered that fighting tournament to meet her hero again, and even longer since she had even seen or heard anything concerning-

“Sonic!” she gasped.

Sitting at her table, flipping through her open tarot cards, was the blue hero himself.

She blushed, leaning back in mostly surprise before happily throwing the basket up and placing her hands together at the side of her face, hearts in her eyes.

‘He found my home! I knew he could!’ she swooned, before the basket came down and obscured her vision, making her wobble a bit before pushing it up and looking back at him.

He looked over to her, as if nothing was amiss. “Yo.” he stated, and went back to the cards, placing some down. “What does this mean?”

“Ah..” he hadn’t seen her in an awfully long time… and all he was going to say was ‘yo, what does this mean’?

She pouted a little, puffing up a side of her cheek and folding her arms, before thrusting them down in annoyance at how rude that was.

Wasn’t he happy to see her too?

She came over to the couch, looking at his arrangement.

“Ah!” she noticed her own arrangement from this morning and quickly messed it up, compiling the cards up but not touching the ones he’d placed down. “So embarrassing!” she thought her house a mess, even though it was well presented and organized.

She held the piled of tarot cards messily placed into her hands over her face, shaking herself side to side in a cutely shy fashion.

He just stared at her, before looking back at his arrangement. “What’d it say?”

She peeked above the cards, and then smacked them down to the table, “Ohh, you could at least tell me first how you found me! O-or why~<3″ she hid once again behind the cards, squeeing slightly at how bold it was to ask!

He just leaned back, kicking his feet up to the table and draping one over the other, rubbing his nose and closing his eyes to relax a bit.

“You hollered out where you lived, remember?”

Amy twitched, the cards flying everywhere around her as her eyes turned white with shock. “I… I did?” she barely squeaked out.

“Yeah. Half the town heard ya.” Sonic moved his finger that was itching his nose to now scratch and poke inside his ear, twisting it a bit before he yawned and peeked an eye open. “I figured I’d check up on ya. Make sure no weirdos burst into your house or somethin’.”

That was over a year ago.

“H-huh? Weirdos?.. ah!” she suddenly opened her mouth wide, realizing…

She raced to her window, and gasped as she looked in the other room.

“You came in through my window!” she cried out, seeing the pots smashed and the dirt from his feet all over her kitchen floor.

Her face slouched down as a few quills stood out of place, giving her a drained look, “You’re the one who crashed into my house..” she groaned to herself, before turning around and seeing him looking at a card, turning it over and examining it again, before showing it to her.

“Hey, tell me what this means.” he asked once more, but instead of annoyed, Amy just sighed and conceeded.

“Well, I suppose boys will be boys. Hehe~” she figured it was his eagerness to see her that he took such routes to get in, and seemed to think of it as a compliment. (Author’s note: Don’t let people break into your house, even if you like them, please. lol)

She plopped right down next to him and scooted over, looking at the three arrangements of cards he had.

“Hmm… I don’t think you did it right.” she stated, and leaned over him to get to the cards.

Without her noticing… Sonic watched her as she leaned over, staring at her face a moment…

Unknown to her, he had silently and mysteriously missed her along his travels. He wasn’t sure why, but he just felt like a friendly visit wouldn’t hurt none.

With Eggman’s whereabouts unknown, he took the opportunity to seek her out.

The townsfolk were the hardest obstacles… Sonic was embarrassed to ask about a girl he had only met a few times already, and one who seemed overly fond of him too.

Luckily, only some of the townsfolk knew Amy only vaguely, and didn’t question his looking for her.

But sadly… others knew of her obsession, apparently, with him. And they snickered and would tease that he wanted to know where she lived.

He had stifled a comeback here and there.. twitching at trying to practice some self-discipline, but in a sense… he was desperate to see her again.

The real reason he wanted to see her?

He continued to let her lean over, arranging and doing her tarot, voodoo, whatever thing as he looked at the way her quills bent, her eyelashes curled, and even how that long sash around her head could so neatly tie up at the end behind her head.

She was cute, but there had to be something more than that.

Why did her name and face just… pop into his head all of a sudden?

He was resting after a while of nothin’, no leads, no real action happening, and suddenly remembered the first time he saw her.

Without pushing the idea away for a moment, he thought back on her and the time they had together… something was special about her.

What was it?

That’s why he had found her. He had to know, for himself anyway.

 What was so special about the memory of Amy Rose?

“There!” she leaned up, right when his eyelids furrowed in his thoughts, before he turned to look at the table neatly put together again.

She giggled, “Okay, take the first three cards from the top.” she instructed.

He looked at her funny, his ears moving slightly forward in suspicion, before doing so.

“Great! Now put them down like so.” Amy pointed out a finger and placed it on the table, as he seemed kinda bored by the instruction and quickly placed the cards down.

She giggled.

“What!?” he quickly sat up, moving his arms up as he turned to her, looking slightly frustrated she wasn’t telling him what the deal was. “Hey! Don’t keep it to yourself! It’s my fortune, tell me!”

She continued to laugh, liking his reaction as he suddenly puffed and sat back, folding his arms and pouting like a little kid.

“Hehe, sorry! It says you like to jest to flirt. And you don’t care who hears it, just as long as they smile!” she beamed, and for a moment, he forgot her ‘obviously wrong’ interpretation to stare at the smile…

He remembered that smile…

It was that smile.. that…

His eyes widened.

“That’s it!” he leaned forward, arms out.

It was her smile!

He missed her smile!

“Ah… do… do you believe me now?” she tilted her head, not sure what he was talking about.

He closed his eyes and leaned back on the comfy couch, nodding to himself. “Yep, that must be it.”

“…Um… Do you jest with a lot of girls?” she sweat dropped, hoping that not the case.

He nodded again. “Has to be.” he told himself, still on his train of thought and just speaking out loud.

Her body suddenly rose with flames, showing her true opinion about that statement. “Emmmm… HMPH!” She puffed up a side of her cheek and swished it away from him.

“I wouldn’t have taken you for a casonova! Although… I could see why girls would fawn over you day in and day out… being so cool and famous as you are~ Teehee~” she seemed to look away and fantasize for a moment, before putting her two hands up by her cheeks, but then turning around swiftly back at him to glare. “You better not cheat on me.” she warned.

He suddenly snapped out of his thoughts and looked back to her, blinking, “Hmm? Hmm.” he narrowed his eyes, not caring about missing the conversation she was on.

He whipped his hand back, spun to be on top of the back of the couch, and stood firmly, arms folded together.

“Hey, Amy. Want to go for a ride?” he smiled, looking down at her.

“Huh? A ride?” Amy blinked, looking up at him before grinning and blushing, turning away to hide her face again.

For a moment, he thought he said something off, and tilted his head, “Huh? What’s wrong? Don’t you miss riding along with me?” He bent his body down but remained perfectly balanced as his feet kept a firm stance on the couch’s ridge.

“Hehehe~ It’s not that! I’d love to come!” she threw her arms up, moving to face the couch’s back and look back up at him as he leaned up.

“It’s just… my fortune today! It said that I should accept an unexpected invitation today! And then you showed up.” she blushed again and turned her face. “It really is destiny, isn’t it?”

Sonic thought about that briefly, before offering her his hand. “Well, I don’t know about destiny, but I sure do think your smile is pretty.” he didn’t seem to have any trouble saying that.

She looked back up, her face bright red as she kicked her feet out and squee’d into her hands.

“You really think so, Sonic?~<3″

“What? Most girls are.”

“Ah, you’re so- wait.” she suddenly moved her hands down, looking annoyed by that comment. “Ohhh!” she leaned up, glaring up at his face that had to move speedily before the two accidentally collided.

So close to her face.. .he barely paid attention to what she was talking about as memories from before flooded his mind again… What’d he do after he saved her again..?

“You better not be picking up other girls for joyrides, Sonic! I’m your future bride, remember? No other girl should be as cute as me!”

“I didn’t say cute. I said pretty.” Sonic continued to stare… her expression, mannerisms,… everything she did was so full of life. It reminded him of something…

“Ohhh!!! You better not! I’m warning you, mister!” she flailed her arms around, being upset he would say such things, especially if he was saying them to other girls.

He suddenly smiled, his eyebrows lifting to a more tender and… kind nature.

“Be right back.” he winked, putting a pointer finger up and leaning away from her face.

He dashed off, a sudden excitement sprang in his chest that he wasn’t fully aware of before, but pulled him to take action.

She blinked, not sure what he was doing, but lowered her head to the back of the couch, pouting. “And there he goes again…” she sighed and drooped her eyelids. “There goes my hero again~ Ahh~ I missed him so much~<3” she cooed, before hearing the wind pick up outside and lifted her head up, surprised to see him jerk himself forward and wobble to a balance like a door-stop.

“You’re back!”

“Em-hmm. Here.” he held up a flower. “There’s a full meadow of these growing not too far from here. They kinda remind me of you.” he stated, being a bit more… honest than he ever had been before.

“Oh! A meadow!”

There it was. That smile he had silently missed for so long.

He smiled too, seeing her face glow like these flowers usually do. So full of life as they sway in the wind, rapidly losing petals as if trying to escape the ground through it.

He walked up, jumped, and placed the flower by her ear. “Come on. It won’t take long.” he hoped it wouldn’t pass to quickly either.

“Here, I’ll catch you. Like before.” he stepped two paces back, and held out his hands. “Trust me, I won’t drop ya.” he winked, charmingly.

She couldn’t believe it, this time, instead of her tracking him down, he had found her! And now, he’s taking her off to some adorable meadow to do some cute coupley things and they were going to live happily ever after and she would kiss his cheek and say ‘I do’ and ahhh~

She immediately jumped into the air.

Sonic positioned himself, and gladly caught her.

Her light weight in his arms brought back more pleasant memories.

“Alright, looks like we’re set.”

“Em!” she nodded, “Just like your fortune!”

“M-my fortune?” Sonic turned back, “What was that again?”

“Hehe, it said more than jesting, silly.” she batted her eyes, making him suddenly grow a little nervous.

“Uhh…” he suddenly sweat dropped. What did she think they were going to do in the meadow…?

He just wanted to enjoy the smile, she just wanted to give him a smile~<3 (Author’s note: Teehehehe~)

But it was certain, as Sonic ran off, and Amy explained, “It said you were all set to go! That there was nothing else you needed now but a cheery grin on your face!”

He knew it wasn’t his grin he needed to equip himself with for this journey.

It’s was hers.

“Huh, I wonder if this is what’s it’s like.” he stated, racing ahead.

“What, what’s like?” she was laughing a moment ago, enjoying the fast speeds like a roller-coaster.

He looked down at her.

“…Hmm…” he scrunched up his face.

Her?

“W-what?” She blinked up, innocently, having no idea…

He rolled his eyes up to the side, smiling and keeping it his little secret.

“Nuuuuthin’.” he stated, watching the fainted blue sky stretch across the plain as he ran her and that pretty smile to the meadow.

But he knew.

He always knew then.

Laying down to rest and watching her spin around and then lay opposite of him, their heads touching, looking up and then laughing or talking about the beautiful butterflies, the many pictures in the clouds, and the whole time listening to her sweet voice cry out in laughter, a melody he didn’t know he’d grown so fond of.

He knew.

He knew at last.

But that wasn’t going to change anything.

Only that he wouldn’t lose track of where she was again.

Just in case…

He got that urge to see her smile again.

He looked up, stopping himself from chuckling and feeling her head move up and down as she continued to give a beautiful open smile and laugh some more.

He smiled calmly too, blinking slowly.

Just in case.

nsfw-ish! (tbh it’s not that nsfw but i tr ied) 


Yoosung

  • it never really occurred to yoosung that mc wasn’t very ‘feminine’, but he did realize the only time he saw her in a dress was at the party
  • which was totally her choice, but it was also how she acted
  • she seemed to always try to be tough, taking on things she probably shouldn’t be doing but again, go her! 
  • but he felt bad that she wanted to carry all those heavy boxes and such
  • then when they went shopping one day, he saw her eyeing this dress 
  • he asks her about it and she says no, which made him pout
  • they left without that dress but he was determined to get it for her..so he did, surprise! 
  • mc grinned at first but then got all shy and asked him why he bought it
  • “Because you wanted it! I could tell..I just..thought you would like it..” what an angel
  • she tells him that yes! she does like it, but she doesn’t think she could pull it off *confused yoosung noises*
  • “honey, you’re beautiful!!” she gets even more blushy and shakes her head 
  • yoosung literally attacks her with kisses until she’s all giggly - kissing her face, neck, and to her shoulders, that they end up on the couch
  •  “come on, hun. how am I beautiful? I never wear dresses!” “you’re beautiful no matter what you wear-even wearing nothing, I want you to wear whatever you want”
  • this whole time, he’s like on top of her on the couch
  • “even wearing nothing?…” mc asks, smiling up at him. he blushes. 
  • “yes. and i’ll show you.” and boy oh boy he does

707 / Luciel / Saeyoung

  • saeyoung kinda knew what was going on, but really found out when he was trying to convince her to cosplay with him
  • “but mc, it would be so fun!!” “but saeyoung, you want to put me in a dress.” 
  • *pouts* “but you’ve seen me in a dress..” “that’s not the point”
  • “please please?? i won’t show anyone or take pictures and even put it on myself!” to really prove it, he throws on a dress himself
  • mc finally agrees 
  • he lets her pick the dress, but doesn’t let her lift a finger after that 
  • helps her undress and even put the other dress on 
  • mc is all blushy 1. from the undressing and 2. from wearing the dress
  • saeyoung grins at her when he’s done and ends up staring a bit
  • mc blushes more, “saeyoung, you’re staring..” “well…you’re hot”
  • “you’re ridiculous” “no seriously. I admit that I glanced a little while helping you” “sAEYOUNG”
  • “I mean, I can return the favor” and he literally takes his dress off right there
  • wow mc is red 
  • and now he starts pointing out his physical insecurities, all of which mc finds ridiculous he looks so good
  • she can’t help herself and starts kissing to what he points to 
  • and now her dress is off and he’s doing the same for her 
  • at the end of that, they look at each other until saeyoung pulls her into a deep kiss
  • guess we’ll have to cosplay another day

Zen 

  • they were looking through his old costumes and some of them were a little, uh, revealing not anywhere bad geez i mean they were ripped
  • mc is kind of amazed. she asks how he wears them without being so self-conscious 
  • turns out he has a process, it’s not just his ego my boy here has his share of  insecurities 
  • she tries that process one day with a dress when he wasn’t home
  • but he got home early !! and saw her !!! 
  • obviously zen thinks she looks like The Most Beautiful Person Ever 
  • but mc blushes and runs to the closet to hide 
  • “babe! where are you going? that dress looks great on you!” 
  • “no it doesn’t, zen! stop it. I’m just gonna wear jeans forever, even to the party.”  what a dramatic couple 
  • he convinces her to come out of the closet, the dress still on
  •  but she has he arms crossed and is all pouty and not looking at him
  • luckily, he knows exactly what to do
  • he takes one of her hands and kisses from her hand to her shoulder, whispering little compliments until he gets to the other one 
  • and the next thing she knows, he’s doing that for everything?? 
  • her face, stomach, chest, even her legs hahahah i love the body worship hc 
  • and now she’s blushing for a whole other reason…which zen also takes care of ;))

Jumin

  • oh boy
  • this man wants to spoil mc with dresses, but she never wears them 
  • he asks about that at dinner one night
  • and mc spills that she thinks she’s not pretty enough to wear dresses and it’s so much easier to just…be not feminine 
  • he understands, a little
  • and you know, he could just.. tell her that he thinks she’s beautiful and that she could try wearing dresses if she wanted to 
  • but noooo 
  • this man had to buy her a bunch to tell her
  • mc is shocked when she got home 
  • “i just..” jumin starts, “I think you’re beautiful, and I want you to feel comfortable in whatever you wear. So I thought we’d practice, just here”
  • she indulges him and they have a mini fashion show that’s just her 
  • jumin is there like “wow my wife is amazing”
  • she starts getting more confident at like, the 6th dress but she also starts getting tired
  • so they take a break, she sits next to him on their bed
  • he pulls her over and makes her look at him
  • “see, my love? you’re beautiful in anything..” mc smiles “which was your favorite?” she asks 
  • “this one.” he answers, “because I’m taking it off”

V / Jihyun

  • also pretty much doesn’t care and actually didn’t notice she never wore dresses (ps this baby got the surgery here he deserves this)
  • until he asked her to do a photoshoot with him! 
  • he get so excited about backgrounds and outfits its so cute
  • but mc starts getting shy and of course, he notices  
  • so he asks her about it 
  • and looking into his eyes, mc has to tell the truth i couldn’t lie to him either tbh
  • he listens and smiles at her softly when she finishes talking
  • “oh, angel..you can wear absolutely anything you want and if you don’t want to wear dresses, you don’t have to.” 
  • however, she decides to wear one. Just for him and the photoshoot
  • she surprises him when she comes out of the changing room and V is like, in awe 
  • he thinks she is amazing! wonderful! and he lets her know! 
  • *cue blushy mc* *and grinny jihyun*
  • he gives her a kiss for the surprise and wants to give her like, thousands more
  • but since he’s not that into pda, he takes her into the dressing room to shower her with kisses
  • and then mc says she’s “uncomfortable” in the dress again and that she needs his help “taking it off” bad mc
  • thank god he has his own studio 

Saeran 

  • my bean here gives no fucks 
  • mc is thankful bc she’s so comfortable around him and can do whatever 
  • until the rest of the rfa tells her she has to wear a dress for the party
  • so she tells him to complain a little, but she’s still gonna do it
  • “i think it’d be nice to see you in a dress. different, but nice”
  • aw damn, now she really has to 
  • they go shopping together, saeran picks a really pretty one and she loves it
  • but in the dressing room, she doesn’t think she looks that good
  • “hey, mc! do you need any help in there or?” he calls out
  • “uh, no thank you..I don’t think I’m gonna get it though, Saeran”
  • “why? let me see.” and so he comes in 
  • he tilts his head “you look great in it, why don’t you want it?”
  • she gives him the mini explanation given their whereabouts
  • he frowns and turns them to face the mirror again 
  • “look, I think you look beautiful in this dress. and I know the rest of the rfa will, too. if you really don’t want to wear it, I’ll tell them myself, but if you like it, get it.”
  • both of them are blushing now, but saeran means it
  • and she buys it. they walk out of the store holding hands
  • look i have a hc that saeran is ace so….
