i want this when i'm older

So I just realized something today. You know how we always rant about the (old, too old) age of the actors playing Harry Potter’s parents in the movies?

Severus Snape, Sirius Black and Remus Lupin were (more or less) 31 years old when Harry started to attend Hogwarts.

Yep.


Still, in the movies, they were interpreted by a 55 year old (Alan Rickman), a 43 year old (Gary Oldman) and a 38 year old (David Thewlis) respectively. (These are the ages they were when the first movie was released.)


And you know Ben Barnes, who is often fancasted as teenage Sirius Black? He is 35 years old, only a year younger than Sirius was when he died. So Ben Barnes is in fact a good fancast for old Sirius! And Andrew Garfield, who is often fancasted as teenage Remus? 33. Yep. You get my point here.


I generally feel loving someone who doesn't love you back is the most painful feeling in the world

Thank you for teaching us that you can still have fun and dance even if you aren’t good

Thank you for reminding us to have the freedom of a kid even as you get older

Thank you for encouraging us that we will get through it even when we are depressed and have no motivation at all

Thank you for telling us that we can do what we want because it’s our own lives

Thank you for making us laugh at the simple and stupid things

Thank you for being t.o.p to us, but most importantly, thank you for being choi seunghyun

So here’s a beginning concept of what might, someday, turn into something.

some baby boomer who has spent the last three decades in a loveless marriage with someone they barely tolerate: just wait, you’re going to regret putting off looking for love! you’re going to be so lonely when you’re older!! your life is going to feel so empty and incomplete!!!

me, putting my own happiness first, pursuing my dreams, cultivating healthy and fulfilling platonic relationships, doing whatever I want whenever I want, and just generally living my life to the fullest as a young single adult:

You know, really, darling, you are not getting any younger. Surprise me. Buy a bottle of wine, drink yourself silly and dance all night with some inappropriate man like you used to. It’s much better than staying in with a good book. Me? I’m old. I’ve made my mistakes. But you, too pretty. Don’t let it go to waste. Run away for too long and they stop loving you back.

I’ll never forget the way my nieces’ eyes lit up and how excited they became when they asked if there’s any “girl superheroes” and I told them yes 😭💙

Conchita in Lisbon last year (from her Instagram).

So if anyone else wants to do the older party in Lucis glitch, here be instructions: 

If something is unclear - and it probably is because I’m terrible at writing instructions - just send me a chat message. I’d be happy to try and help.

First thing: your game needs to be version 1.0. This glitch requires for you to go out of bounds, and the way has been patched in later versions of the game (to my knowledge at least.) 

(If you have a physical copy of the game, reverting back to 1.0 is easy: delete the game, disable internet on your ps4 so it doesn’t download and install updates, install game again. Not sure if it’s doable on all digital version?)

Basically you just need to swim to Altissia on your chocobo sometime before setting sail there. (The video shows how you can advance enough so you reach the ocean. From there just take a course to Altissia - try and replicate the course the boat will take so you won’t fall through the world. It takes a long time.)

Note: I did it in chapter 3 I think? Sometime right after getting chocobos and leveling enough to do the jump off the bridge in Old Lestallum. (It shouldn’t matter when you go there, just as long as it’s before the boat ride. I think anyway.)

K. Now you’ve reached Altissia, congrats, here’s one video showing how you can get safely to land. (Around 7:45.) You should save before going up the stairs. I’ve once gotten stuck under a bridge, and twice trying to go up the stairs and trust me it’s awful having to do the long swim up until that point.

Then just go to the hotel and talk to Gentiana to get the cutscene and the ability to summon Umbra. 

Do not sleep at the hotel.

Now. This is an important step. Open your map and see if you have the option available to go back to car. You should. (or go back to rest point? that should work too?) I left the Regalia in Old Lestallum so I just went there.

Once you’re in Lucis, summon Umbra and go to past Lucis. This way we’ll be leaving the present characters to wherever they’re now.

You should be in Cape Caem now, in the past, and Cindy calls you to give the Adamantoise quest. (Just ignore it for now.)

Then just continue on and advance the story all the way until you’re in Insomnia. 

After fighting the first wave of imperials/demons, go to rest point and call Umbra and go to present time.

Everyone should be older now, wherever you left them in Lucis back then several hours ago.

Save.

Random things I’ve noticed, these might be different for you I don’t know (this poor game is so confused)

  • There’s no Regalia. Anywhere. It’s gone. I have the option to talk to Cindy and service/customize it but when I click on the options nothing happens.
    EDIT: Thanks @analfuneral for letting me know, there is indeed a way to get the Regalia! Just do not start any of Cindy’s side-quests until you’re with the older party. The cutscene where she gives you the first quest to get the car wax spawns the car to Hammerhead. (Tho it disappears if you save/reload, so if you want to keep getting the car be sure to save BEFORE initiating the cutscene.)

  • For some reason Cid won’t upgrade my weapons anymore. In the game the quest map tries to tell me Cid is in Cape Caem but he’s sitting in Hammerhead in reality so I don’t know?

  • Adamantoise quest crashes everything when trying to talk to Dave 
    EDIT: Not crashing anymore for some reason?

Now you can update your game if you want. Everyone will still be older in Lucis, but summoning Umbra won’t work anymore. (Well. It does, but it also fixes the glitch - at least for me - if you travel to past/present so don’t do that.) 

ALSO, if you want to see older Noctis without the beard, your game needs to be updated. Don’t know what they’ve done to make it happen. (And it only happens while in Steyliff Grove!)

Murder on the Orient Express updates via Variety today:

  • Branagh and the cast (minus Depp and Pfeiffer) introduced 10-15 min of new and previously unseen “work-in-progress” footage in London today - the introduction of the central characters, the establishing of the murder, plus the epic vistas of snow-capped mountains, and the trailer again from WonderCon
  • The cast loved the camaraderie on set, there was a “wonderful company feel about it”. “What was very extraordinary was that we were all together. It wasn’t like a film where you all do different bits. In this case we were all there all the time.” (Judi Dench, Princess Dragomiroff)
  • For the train interior scenes they have an on-set railway carriage, with pre-recorded background footage rolling in the windows. Branagh: “I found myself going to the end of the train to watch the scenery go by as if I was on a real train, and I wasn’t the only one. Quite a few of us got motion sickness.”
  • The production design is incredible. Josh Gad (MacQueen): “It was surreal. I just had the opportunity to go on the real Orient Express, and the detail that the production team brought is unreal, exquisite. It is so spot-on. For us that intimacy really lends itself to Ken’s vision. When you’re in a confined environment, it creates a sense of unease, even if you have nothing to hide.”
  • James Prichard, Agatha Christie’s great-grandson, said securing Branagh to direct and star was “awe-inspiring.” “He gets the grandeur of the work, and his vision as he first told it us made my hair stand up.”
  • Branagh made a conscious decision to not watch the ‘74 movie version, and advised the cast to do the same: “Our goal is to try and find a new approach. That’s why classic stories are worth retelling.” He also said “there are some surprises.”

Being Aromantic isn’t like any other orientation

With every other orientation one of the persons end goals is usually to end up with at least one other person domestically. That isn’t necessarily true with aros. And that is okay! It doesn’t make your boring or broken. I don’t see what the big deal is. 

I’m writing this because I think it’s important. I don’t know about other aros’ but Chip Zdarsky’s tweet about him not thinking Jughead would be aro when he gets older hurt me deeply. Please don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against demi-aros. But there is nothing pointing to that being true? I feel like he just thought a person not end-game with anyone was boring or sad. It really hurt me.

SPACE MOM I'M C R Y I N G. An older guy came into my steak n shake and I was taking his order (and when its a counter order we ask for your name) So I aSked his name and IN THE DEEPEST MOST SOUTHERN ACCENT HE SAYS "Th' name's Keith" AnD I NEARLY SNORTED I WANTED TO CRY AND nOw I'm hiding in the bathroom at work so I could tell you this story.

quiche… may i call u quiche? yeah? rad. ok, QUICHE. LISTEN

i kid u not…… i was out to dinner with friends when this ask came in. i very innocently opened the notification. it loaded, i read it, and all hell broke loose. 

i let out a fuckin yodel-esque scream in the middle of the restaurant, i shit u not.

my friends were like “what in the holy hell just happened to hannah” 

and i was like “HIS FUCKIGN NAME WAS KEITH YOU GUYS” while wheezing uncontrollably and incoherently mumbling things like “he had a southern accent” and “what in voltron formation”

i laughed so hard i cried. i had to leave dinner early and sit in the car because my laughter was uncontrollable. 

fucking THANK YOU FOR THIS STORY. you legit made my entire week. i love you. 💜

i have forgotten how to be gentle, i think, or else i’m a different kind of gentle now. the kind of gentle that can kill. the kind of gentle that asks to be killed.

i’m the kind of gentle that begs everything that’s listening for death but it doesn’t come, or it does but then i wake up not knowing where i am, my bedroom or yours, or the bottom of the ocean and it’s not fair, do you hear me, it’s not fair to want something so bad and only get to taste it—


i think i’m the poorly-executed drawing on the fridge of the universe and god’s too sadistic to take it down. saying look at this, look at what you did, look at what you are, look at it forever.


i crawl into your bed because it’s the closest i can get to dying anymore. i crawl into your bed for all the romantic gestures like gentle choking, gentle bruising,


i think you know that.


how i use you for pain and not pleasure, or sometimes both, sometimes, if i want it to really hurt. if i think i deserve it. you say i’m too young to feel this way and i say i’ll get older, i say when i grow up i want to be a corpse six feet under so you can walk over my body, dirt in my eyes, seeing nothing.


i think i have forgotten how to be gentle. i think i’m sorry.

What do you mean you two already know each other?

“Eh? Shanks is my god-dad, why wouldn’t I know Riskua?”

Ace stares at Luffy, feeling a mirage coming on. 

It’s either that or his desire to wrap his hands around Luffy’s neck and squeeze. Those urges from childhood (the ones to beat some sense into the little idiot) have never actually left; Ace’s just got that much better at not acting on the desire.

fae-ble  asked:

When I'm older, I'd like to have a little dog like a chihuahua or a Papillion. How can I make sure to give it as much bodily autonomy as a big dog would get? I don't want it to always be on edge and stressed out because it doesn't feel safe

Straight up just treat it like a regular dog. Don’t pick it up when you need it to do something - train it instead - or when you need it to move. Let it growl or bark and listen to what it is telling you, rather than ignoring it or thinking the signals are just cute. Train it to walk on a leash without pulling, with all the manners you would expect of a giant breed.
