i wonder how many times this has been made

anonymous asked:

Hi! I wanted to ask if you know anything abt joon's opinion on feminism. I've been a bts stan for a while now and I was kinda wondering. It's hard to tell with how idols on the kpop scene aren't really supposed to express opinions....

namjoon has expressed it many times through music, the media he consumes and the clothing he wears. 

namjoon very much a feminist who believes everyone, female, male, trans, bi, gay, rich, poor, black, white, blue, religion, everyone deserves respect, equality, love, and all the same opportunities 

actively wears skirts and runway fashion that is actually made for women

take a look at the book on his night stand

one of the few times he has tweeted about same sex love/LGBT issues

  • Namjoon was the one who came up with the topics they spoke about in the song change for the collaboration with Wale. he said he keeps up with american media and thinks it’s important to know what is going on around the world. he wanted to use his large platform to speak about the important issues of black lives matter, and the government and things needing to change because things are not okay. he said because of the situations going on in the us and in korea in was important to talk about it
  • 21st century girl, need I say more?
  • actively giving a voice to those who can’t through his music and fancafe posts
  • releasing the song ‘I know’ the day after korea passed its law to ban same sex marriage 

and many many many more, he doesn’t hide it, he openly speaks about it regularly. people just have to listen to him

I had a revelation recently, (which I kind of already knew but this kind of cemented it in my head) which is that Americans actually think THEY are the progressive, open minded ones.

For example, Tom Holland (new Spider-Man) recently did a drag performance of Umbrella on that lip sync show thing (which I would thoroughly recommend watching, he was fucking fantastic) and while some people were like “ew, that’s weird and I’m uncomfortable,” the other half were like “this is so groundbreaking! Spider-Man in drag! He must have SUCH confidence in his masculinity to do something like that at 20 years old! I wonder if he’s gay? He must at least be bi!” Meanwhile anyone I talked to in Britain was like “yeah it was a good performance. Seems like a nice guy.” Because it WASN’T groundbreaking. I didn’t think so, anyway. Tom Holland said “yeah I didn’t mind being in drag, I asked to do it” and took it completely casually, didn’t even think twice about it, because what British actor HASN’T done drag? 

We have a culture over here of men dressed as women in pantomimes every year, and these are things AIMED at children, not deemed inappropriate for them, and the men in question are never thought to be gay or trying to be a woman or whatever. They’re just being funny and having a good time. In my town there’s a local farmer who does the panto every year, as a woman, wig and make up and all, and he’s the beefiest most masculine guy you’ll meet with a wife and kids. He just likes the theatre of it. 

In Mrs Brown’s Boys (probably the most successful Irish sitcom), Mrs Brown is played by a male comedian, Brendan Carroll. His wife and children are also in the show. The fact that he was dressed as a woman was never the joke in the show, or even referenced - he just wrote a funny character and then decided “I’m going to play her.” If you didn’t know already you probably couldn’t even tell from watching that Mrs Brown was a man. I’ve never heard anybody over here have a problem with that. It just.. is. The joke is in her being a foul mouthed old lady who tells filthy jokes, not the part where she’s played by a man. 

When Queen first released “I want to break free” the video (which featured the whole band in drag as housewives) wasn’t allowed to be released in America because they deemed it too risqué and it wasn’t received well. Over here we just thought it was entertaining. We thought nothing of it really. Half the guys in my class when I was at school dressed as women at some point for a laugh. And it was only after speaking to Americans I realised that that just isn’t done over there. We had guys do drag for talent shows in secondary school, and plays in primary school. Everyone thought they were great. Guys from the rugby team went to prom in dresses and their girlfriends went in suits for the hell of it. The principal dressed as a woman on our last day as a joke. But a teenage boy doing drag at school for whatever reason in America is social suicide. I mean, obviously some people in Britain wouldn’t be as accepting of that, and some parts of America are more accepting than others, it’s a massive country, but overall it’s just such a different culture. I think that’s partially why the really liberal, “progressive” ones make such a massive deal about gender roles, and why anyone who dresses as the opposite sex is deemed trans or gay or “queer” - because while they like to think they’re ahead of the game in terms of gender, they still have the mindset that if you wear a dress, you must want to be a woman. (Learned all this while living there btw, I’m not just making assumptions.) 

It irritates me when I then see Americans claiming they are the pinnacle of open-mindedness, and British people are old fashioned fuddy duddies when we see THEM as the conservative ones. It’s kind of funny. I don’t think this counts as generalising so much as comparing two very different cultures. And there are definitely British people who are conservative in other ways, but the whole culture around drag is just different here. I’m very sorry for making you read such a long load of shite mags, I just started typing stream of consciousness style into the submission box and didn’t intend for it to be so long. I suppose it’s just interesting how we view ourselves and our culture, and how others might disagree with that from the outside. I wonder what we’ve got wrong about ourselves, lol.

This has put into words exactly how I’ve been feeling for a long time about so many posts and claims and news articles that have come out of the US, but I just hadn’t put it into context. I had no idea why they were so obsessed with something so blatantly ordinary and fine, and you writing all this out, it’s finally clicked in my head.

I mean, we have our Conservatives, but they’re probably more similar to the Democrats in the US in a lot of ways. They were the ones that made the final push to get same-sex marriage legalised here, after all – credit where credit is due.

This is incredibly insightful, and I think that both Brits and Americans would find this fascinating, so thank you so much for taking the time to write it and send it to me. I really, really appreciate it.

#do you ever think about hermione and how it must have felt to realize that your best friend #your one constant in this crazy world - the one with whom you would stick through thick and thin #the one you would die for so he wouldn’t have to die alone #how it must have felt when the inkling that harry might be the final horcrux #made its roots in the back of her mind #the utter despair and denial she must have gone through #how she must have cursed for the first time her title of brightest witch of her age #because ignorance for once might be better than this #might be better than knowing that each moment might be the last #that this is the last adventure #her pleading in the forest to stay hidden and grow old becomes so much more heartbreaking when you wonder if she knew then #how long has she known #how many times did she prepare herself to say goodbye #until that moment on the stairs #because this is it #and she’s not ready #how do you ever ready yourself to watch a piece of your heart walk out of your life #possibly for the last time #how #(i made myself sad) (via overlyaffectionategreeting)

jaeki1712  asked:

This has been a question that i wondered a loooong time ago. If classic sans dies. What happens to the other AU's? Nothing?

Yup, absolutely nothing.
In Underverse, there are only two persons who are the “heart” for each AU (This only applies in AUs where both or one of them exists.)

If both, or one of them dies, the entire AU with their respective timelines could start to collapse.

Also, if someone dies outside of his world, he won’t return to his timeline, no matter how many resets has been made, they will cease to exist.

And just as an aditional info: Pacifist timelines are actually an easiest way to take control over the other timelines (neutral, genocide…) until control and alterate the entire Alternate Universe.

Fifteen years ago today, I saw Spirited Away for the first time. It made an indescribably huge impact on me and has been an important part of my life ever since - I have lost count of how many times I’ve watched it, or how many hours I’ve spent thinking about it.

This is my tribute to a story that that gave eight-year old me courage to grow and a deep sense of wonder towards the world that’s still with me to this day.

Have you ever thought about the fact that Todd is probably not Dirk’s first assistant?  I mean, there must have been others with how long he has been doing this… Who were they? Did Dirk desperately want to be their friend as well?  Every time he would get a new assistant, would he wonder if this would be the friendship that stuck?  Just how many times has Dirk Gently made a “best friend” only to have them walk away?

Hello friends! Are you all jazzed-up on Wonder Woman now that the DCU finally has a good movie? That’s great! Me too! But it doesn’t have to end there! Wonder Woman has a long history of great comic books that have long been overlooked my mainstream nerd culture!

While plenty of us have read foundational DC books like Batman: Year One, All-Star Superman, or Watchmen, Wondie has plenty of books that are just as central to her character as well! The above image is a general recommended reading list, and I certainly haven’t read all of them, but I can give a few recommendations on the ones I have!

Wonder Woman, by George Perez

This is pretty much your foundational modern Wonder Woman. Nearly everything about the character as she is today draws from this sensational run. It’s widely regarded among Wondie fans as one of the most quintessential runs in the character’s history. If you want to wholly *GET* Wonder Woman, this is a fantastic place to start.

Wonder Woman by Gail Simone

What can I say about Gail Simone that hasn’t already been said? Deadpool, Batgirl, Secret Six, Birds of Prey, the woman just has so many legendary comic book runs. And her run on Wonder Woman is no different. She wasn’t on the book for a super long time, but her run is one of the best!

Wonder Woman by Brian Azzarello

This one I understand is a bit polarizing among some on Tumblr. I get that there’s a number of people who don’t like the changes Azzarello made to the amazonian culture, specifically how they deal with male outsiders and male children. However, consider that characters are not interesting without flaws, and seeing for once a definite black spot on the seemingly-perfect Amazons was pretty interesting!


In addition, the book has fantastic art style, and does a lot to re-imagine the greek gods in a modern, almost horror-esque way. This run’s take on Wondie is that of a warrior goddess, so if you want a Diana that’s ready to throw down, this is the book for you!

Wonder Woman: Hiketeia by Greg Rucka

Wonder Woman has taken a sworn oath to protect a young girl! But when she finds out that this girl has murdered her sister’s killer, this puts her at odds with Batman, who is determined that the girl face trial! A modern greek tragedy penned by the masterful Greg Rucka, and an absolutely fantastic one-shot graphic novel!

JLA: A League of One by Christopher Moeller

An unstoppable dragon has awoken from its slumber! An amazonian seer has predicted that it will DESTROY the Justice League! To prevent her friends from dying, Wonder Woman must face the dragon ALONE! Even if it means fighting her friends to stop them from helping her!

Wonder Woman: Odyssey by J. Michael Straczynski

A pseudo-elseworlds story about an amnesiac Wonder Woman rediscovering her place in the world and her destiny. Featuring all-star talent, a gripping suspense story, and my personal favorite Wonder Woman costume ever. 

Wonder Woman by Bill Messner-Loebs

Hey, did you know that for a while Wonder Woman was a space pirate? This run is fucking nuts and I love every page of it. If you want a run where some guys are just trying to tell compelling and INCREDIBLY varied Wonder Woman adventures, give this one a shot!

Wonder Woman: by Greg Rucka

There is a current Wonder Woman ongoing! It’s by Greg Rucka, who has previously done great work with the character. It’s called Wonder Woman: The Lies. Full disclosure, I haven’t read any of this. But if you want a Wonder Woman comic that’s currently ongoing, just pick up Volume 1 and start from there. There’s currently three books out, so there’s plenty of reading material. 

Final Thoughts

Really, anything in the guide I posted first is a good read. Comics are an incredibly small medium, and need all the sales they can get. If you’ve seen the movie and you’re hungry for more, there’s a LOT of material. The character’s been around for over 70 years at this point. So please, head down to your local comic shop and pick up some Wonder Woman! Diana believes in you, and I do too!

Digital painting of Chester Bennington, frontman of Linkin Park, the man with the voice of an angel, one of the greatest singers of all time, a bandmate, an incredible husband and father. 

I couldn’t be older than four or five when I first listened to Linkin Park. I still remember it because the music video I saw freaked me out. It was “One Step Closer”, Chester and Mike had super weird hair and I remember wondering how Chester could be upside down. And should I even mention the weird people flying around? Yeah, freaky. 

If there’s one thing my father passed onto me despite no really being around unless it was to cause trouble, it’s his love for music. Especially rock music, actually. So it wasn’t a surprise that I liked that weird ass band. Still do. Always has, really. I grew up being really lonely, I didn’t have many friends because I was different, a lot of people made fun of me because of that too. At home, it’s always been a mess. You know, there are times, when you are depressed, you think you have no one. That no one cares about you, that no one loves you. Well, at least, I had Chester. At least, I had one person talking to me every day as I grew up, through his songs. Someone who had been through such bad shit, someone who finally could understand me. 

I feel like I’ve lost more than an idol, more than an inspiration, I feel like I’ve lost my best friend, a brother, even. It’s been three weeks and I still can’t get over his death. I’ve only been listening to Linkin Park since I heard the news. I was on holidays when it happened, with my friends, watching TV, and suddenly one of them said “Hey, the singer of Linkin Park is dead, he killed himself, it’s all over Facebook.” I had to excuse myself, told them I was gonna take my shower, I just cried. I didn’t want them to think I was weird, crying over someone I had never met. I didn’t sleep that night, I didn’t smile the following days, and I still feel empty, I can’t stop thinking about it and I still cry sometimes at night. 

Just thinking about the way he did it… It haunts me, I know he suffered and I wonder if he regretted it as he did it. If it was just too late for him at that point, if there wasn’t any way to save him that day. I hate thinking about it but I can’t help it. I hate thinking that I will never be able to meet him, to thank him for everything, to tell him how important he is. 

Anyway, I just felt like I needed to do something too, so here’s a digital painting I spent the last two days making. It’s great seeing so much love being spread for Mike, Brad, Rob, Dave and Joe as well as for Talinda and his kids. I can’t even imagine the pain they are going through if some people like me are missing him so bad without having ever met him. 

I know my blog’s a Marvel blog and that some of my followers might be annoyed that I post a lot of stuff about Chester and Linkin Park lately, but you’re gonna have to get used to it. Chester didn’t need a suit of armor or some indestructible shield to be a hero. So he deserves his place on my blog too. I won’t let his memory ever die, even if that’s all I’ve got left of him.

Night Falls Master List


You’re gnawing on your nail and your knee is incessantly bouncing. A bagel sits uneaten in front of you along with several books and magazines that have gone unread. They were brought in shortly after you were, to hold you over while you waited. That was over two hours ago, and you hadn’t seen anyone since.

You had tried to keep busy by studying the pictures and posters that littered Bobby’s pack rat of an office, but you were so on edge that your eyes couldn’t concentrate for more than a minute. You even tried pacing back and forth to exhaust yourself, but you only made your legs tired and had to ball up your energy into the squeaky pleather seat that started it all for you. 

And it didn’t bother you that you were stuck in their office alone, it was you still had no idea what was going on, or what the game plan was. And you got it; you weren’t FBI, but who the hell were you going to tell? You just needed to know for your own peace of mind.


The clock on Bobby’s wall reads 12:03 when the door finally opens. You immediately jump from your seat as Cas and Bobby walk in. You frown, noticing Dean is still missing. 

“Where’s Dean?” You turn in your spot as Bobby walks around his desk and takes a seat.

Bobby motions for your chair and you sit down, Cas in the chair besides you.

“Dean has been relieved for the day.” Bobby speaks slow and clear as he folds his hands on his desk. You glance at Cas, who is looking down, before turning your attention back to Bobby.

“Why?” Your brows furrow. He was still your agent, wasn’t he?

“Y/N,” Bobby shifts in his chair. “I’m not sure if you’re aware, but Dean has a personal connection to this case.”

“Yeah,” you look behind Bobby fo a moment before finding his gaze again. “Zazel killed his mother when he was seven.” You say without hesitation. Bobby and Cas pointedly share a look. 

“What?” You glance between the two of them.

Bobby shifts in his seat again, flinging one arm over the back of his chair as he leans back.

“Wasn’t aware he told you,” Bobby grumbles with a slight shake of his head. “But to answer your question, I think it would be best for him to not be involved in the investigation.”

Investigation. Not case.

“Okay,” you shake your head. “And what about my case?” You lean forward in your chair. “What happens now that the guy you were protecting me from is dead?” You say without hesitancy as you look between the two men.

“Well,” Bobby glances to Cas. “We’ve discussed this internally–and with Ellen–and we feel that with Zazel dead, a threat to your safety is no longer imminent.” Your brows scrunch.

“Meaning….” You lead unsurely.

“Meaning,” Bobby straightens up in his chair. “You can return home and carry back on with your life.” Bobby offers with a small smile. 

The air leaves your lungs as you fall back into your seat.

It was over. It was finally over. You could go home. You could return to your life.

“I can go home?” You ask for reassurance, not fully believing it.

“You can.” Bobby nods with a smile and you can’t help one from spreading on your own face.

“We’ll keep two agents stationed at your apartment–just as a precaution–” Bobby holds up his hands as your eyes go wide. “But you’re free to return back to your normal life.

You take a deep breath and nod.

It was finally over.

Security measures || Joshua

✦genre: fluff
✦blurb: it’s practically the end of the world when your parents dump your younger brother with you, even when you have already repeatedly told them that you have plans. thankfully, joshua doesn’t seem to mind too badly. [requested]
✦word count: 1660
✦author’s note: i’m actually trying out writing in present tense this time, so please let me know if it’s terrible and i should switch back orz;;

You tug on the ends of your hair in agony while biting on the end of your nails nervously. It’s not much of a surprise that your parents would force you to babysit your brother, but they would usually tell you in advance when they were planning to go out - which, left you to take care of your brother while they were off having their fun. You assume that it has simply hasn’t crossed their mind to let you know as you pace back and forth in your dining room. It’s not that you don’t like having your brother around, no, it’s more of the fact that you made a promise to go out with your boyfriend today and you absolutely despise letting people down at the last second.

The ding! from your phone signifies that your parents are arriving at your apartment soon, and it makes you more antsy than ever. You pause in your shifting momentarily, merely starting again the next second. You aren’t sure if you should even respond, but you reluctantly pick up the delicate device between your fingers. Before you swipe to unlock the screen, you toss the phone in your air over and over again. You finally type out an ‘okay’ and turn the screen black in one move with a satisfying click. You haven’t told your boyfriend of this matter yet, but your plan is to compose your thoughts and decide on a plan after your brother arrives.

Today marks exactly one year since I started this blog and wow dang how time flies!! To celebrate, I did a redraw of the very first drawing I posted!

Creating this blog was a big deal for me. I spent over two years previously being so ashamed of my skill level I didn’t show anyone anything I made. So I was BEYOND nervous about putting my work out there, but I’m so glad I got over myself and did it. I’ve progressed so much, met so many amazing people, and the TF fandom has been wonderful to get into!

So thanks to everyone for all the support and kind comments this past year! It’s helped me more than you can imagine!

A bit late but HAPPY SERIES ANNIVERSARY to all of the fandom!! So @skylars-selection​ had the wonderful idea of starting a tag [here] to share our experiences with this book series (thank you for pointing out this day to all of us Sky!) and I was tagged by @illeaslockedbluebox​, @thedandelioninperspective​ & @the-selection-bitch​ [who made America fan art and shared her story here]. You all have such lovely things to say, so I guess it’s my turn…

When I joined: I read The Heir in November of 2015 (I know that’s not the first book, I’ll explain further on), but it wasn’t until around the time The Crown was coming out that I joined the Tumblr fandom. Actually, it was a few weeks before “The Heir with dolls” video was posted; those were my first interactions with the fandom–way back in April 14th of 2016–when I made my first mrtflr post on this blog!! Just realized it has been a year since that, le gasp. The fandom was fun and filled with wonderful people with incredible talent (and it still is)!

quicklikelight: Think about Danny doing random room checks and walking in on Scott kissing a boy. And suddenly, Danny really wants to be the boy Scott McCall is kissing.

OMGGGGGGGGGG Anne.

Danny fumbles over whatever he was about to say and backs out of the room before either Scott or his gentleman caller can react. Except he doesn’t do it so quickly that he misses Scott’s slow, deliberate lick of his lips, just a casual little post-kiss self grooming that umm. Does things. To Danny.

Who beats a hasty retreat to his room, where he stands in the center of it, frozen while his mind mentally revises years worth of interaction with his former classmate. Then, in a move worthy of neither his IQ nor his education, he dials Jackson on his phone.

Look, everyone has their own unique ways of self-sabotaging. Some people skip class. Some people party more than they should. Danny asks Jackson for advice. It is what it is. 

“What?” Snaps a groggy voice, answering the phone. Which is Jackson speak for ‘hello, I missed you.’

“Scott McCall kissing boys is a thing. Why didn’t you tell me Scott McCall kissing boys was a thing?” Danny demands in response. It isn’t really code for anything.

“You’re saying words, and I feel like I’m expected to know what they mean, but I don’t,” Jackson yawns. “Also, I don’t care. Can this wait until you’re coherent? When answering, keep in mind that I don’t care.”

“Scott McCall goes to UC Davis now. He lives in my dorm. I just walked in on him with his tongue down another guy’s throat. This is highly relevant information that would have been really helpful to know, there was that monosyllabic enough for you?”

“You started strong but then it got away from you at the end,” Jackson drawls. Faint pew-pew sounds from the other end of the line convey that he’s not paying this conversation the attention it deserves, and he still has terrible taste in video games. “Still not seeing the part that makes any of this something I care about. What’s your point?”

“My point is how come you never told me Scott was into guys? Aren’t you supposed to be able to smell that or something?“ 

“Maybe if I’d ever sniffed his underwear or something,” Jackson verbally rolls his eyes. “You realize I only ever got the Cliff Notes version of the How To Werewolf Good manual, and weirdly enough, how to smell where your loser classmate points his boner wasn’t a chapter heading anywhere in it.”

“Maybe I’d realize that if you ever bothered to tell me about any of this stuff. Instead of having to figure it out for myself while I was DATING a werewolf…”

“Oh my god how many times do I have to say I’m sorry - ”

“Once would make a good start.”

“Look, we’re never going to get anywhere on that front. Mistakes were made,” Jackson says magnanimously. No, its actually a hell of a concession, coming from him. And people wonder why Danny now has an actual, honest to god vetting process when making new friends. “Seriously though, what’s the big deal? So McCall looks both ways before crossing the street. Who cares? You’ve never been into gossip before.” 

“I never knew Scott McCall kissing boys was an option before,” Danny all but yells into the phone. “I now have to reevaluate every single time I’ve ever spoken to him….do you even know how many of those times might have been him hitting on me, in light of this new information? I don’t even know because I can’t count that high and I can count pretty goddamn high, Jax.”

“We’ve both been hit on by losers before, Danny. It’s not the end of the world. You’ll survive.”

“Why are you being like this? We both know that you’re not actually as oblivious as you pretend to be. There’s no possible way you missed that I’ve had a crush on him since sixth grade.”

“No, I noticed. I was just hoping if I ignored it, it’d go away. Like gum on the bottom of your shoe.”

“That’s not a thing that happens Jackson. Ignoring gum on your shoe doesn’t magically de-gum the shoe.”

“How the fuck would I know that? I don’t step on gum, it would ruin my shoes. It was a metaphor. Jesus.”

“Stop it.” Danny places a palm to his forehead, reflects on two decades of poor decision making, beginning with befriending Jackson on the playground first day of kindergarten. "Stop doing your WASP-y Whittemore boilerplate evasion tactic thing where you piss me off until I hang up on you, hold a grudge for several days and forget what I originally called you about by the next time we talk. This is happening. Me having a thing for your high school nemesis or whatever is a thing, him kissing a boy is a thing, and you getting on board and helping me is a thing so get on board, Jackson or so help me god -”

“I most certainly will not,” Jackson hisses dramatically. Its times like things where you can really tell the whole ‘he used to be part snake’ thing. “I have standards, and I won’t be party to some path-”

“I am cashing in my chips,” Danny hisses back equally dramatically, and he may not have ever been part snake but goddammit two musical theater electives have got to count for something.

“What chips?”

“ALL THE CHIPS Jackson. All the chips from being your friend and putting up with your shit for year after endless year and never asking for anything in return other than the occasional wingman at the Jungle and okay, you know what, so I do ask you for stuff and you’re not actually as terrible a friend as everyone assumes but there has still been some shit and I most definitely have chips and I am cashing them in, so here’s what’s going to happen.”

Dead air reigns. Then. Begrudgingly. As though being tortured: “I’m listening.”

“You are going to call Lydia,” Danny intones, holding up a finger that Jackson can’t possibly be expected to see, but he feels powerful, intoning while holding up that finger so he decides to stick with it. “You are going to apologize for the many, many things you have yet to apologize to her for. You are going to make it good so she doesn’t just hang up on you. You are going to grovel. And then, when she’s been entertained enough that she’s willing to listen to your obvious ulterior motive for finally calling her out of the blue after all this time, you are going to find out everything she knows about Scott McCall kissing boys. How long has he been kissing boys? How many boys has he kissed? Ballpark, I don’t need hard data points. Is kissing boys just a euphemism for other physical interactions with boys or the sum of his experience?”

He pauses for breath and Jackson seizes the moment.

“Wouldn’t it be easier for me to just slip her a note that says ‘Does Scott like Danny? Check the box for yes or draw a frowny face for no.”

“I fucking hate you so much, I swear to god.”

“I’m just saying, I feel like you were less pathetic when you were actually twelve years old, and you were a pretty pathetic twelve year old.”

“I hope were-cheetahs eat your face.”

Silence.

“Where the fuck did that come from?”

“I don’t know,” Danny sighs. “Look I’m in a very strange headspace right now. I don’t even know what I’m thinking. Can you just do this for me? Please?”

“Fine,” Jackson draws out through obviously gritted teeth. “I want it on record though, I’m doing this under extreme protest.”

“Noted. Irrelevant.”

“Just saying. He’s beneath you.”

“Not yet, but give it til the end of the semester.”

“Eww. If I do this, you have to promise not to disgust me with references to McCall’s anatomy or anything you might do with him.”

“Too late. Negotiations are over, you missed your window.”

“Ugh, dammit. You suck.”

“And thanks so much for helping to facilitate my sucking of your most hated -”

“You’re such a shithead. I hate your guts. Don’t die because of werewolf drama, I’ll call you when Lydia tells me something worth passing along and I swear to god you better not be waiting by the phone when I do.”

“Aww, see you do care,” Danny manages to get in gleefully before a click announces Jackson’s hasty departure.

He flops onto his bed like the pathetic twelve year old he is, and wonders if they still made the line of Armani aftershave he wore while in high school. He was pretty sure Scott liked that one.

Plus its not like he can be accused of waiting by the phone when he’s out buying aftershave, now can he?

Obviously not.

anonymous asked:

How did you do your Cole cosplay? Especially the pants?!

Okay as promised I’ll try to do my best to explain how to make cosplay! Yay! But just as a warning: I will fail.

Let’s start from the top shall we? Hat.

As someone has already guess the leather part of the hat is made out of foam using foam to faux leather techniques. Here is a wonderful tutorial: x 
You can google if you need more tips on how to make it but it’s really simple. I’m not sure if I recommend using foam though since it can be hard to work with and I had a hard time getting a nice shape to it. I’m going to make another hat for the next convention using some kind of fabric instead just to see if it works better.

Top part is paper mache. The helmet. I used a balloon as a base when I made it. If you’re going to do the same just make sure to make the balloon slightly bigger than your head! It’s much easier to make a helmet fit when it’s too big it doesn’t work the other way around. Don’t make the same mistake I did! (I made it too small and had to redo it…) The details where made with paper and glue, every cosplayers favorite tool.

If anyone wonders I used Biltemas own hobbyspray to color it. A grey base color and the metallic color is called ‘Hammarlack’. It’s some good shit I tell you and it wasn’t even expensive! Anyway on to the next part! Shirt!

I’m not sure if I got much to say about the shirt. It’s linen, the patches are some other fabric that I just had to threw together to finish the cosplay (it’s not even the right color). But yeah, a lot of hand stitching stuff together. The wonderful patch on the shoulder is actual leather taken from a bag that I bought at a second hand store. If you aren’t already looking for material for your cosplay at second hand I recommend you start doing it. Anyway, I made very tight zig-zag seams on the patch to create the pattern. Not sure if it’s the best way to go but I had very little time to have second thoughts when I made it. Moving on! Pants!

So many has been asking me about pants and I have no idea how pants actually work but I’ll try my best to explain the pattern. You basically take a lot of pieces of fabric and put them together in a zigzag pattern. I made mine 7-8 cm in width, which is a bit too wide if you ask me. 7 cm is pretty good but further down on the pants you can make them smaller.

I tried to make a gif of how to put together the patches if the first picture didn’t help. Out means outside of fabric, the side you want to show. Friendly reminder: Start from the top of the pants and work your way down! This pattern is hard to make the other way so go from the hips down! It also came to my attention 2 days before the con that the pattern on his pants actually change direction by the knees.

I’m pretty sad I missed this detail so here’s a heads up if anyone want to make a more authentic cosplay. This is from an AMAZING imgur album my friend linked me. It can be found here for all your reference needs!

Last of all we got the slits? That’s the actual name for them right? Not sure if I got much to say to you here other that good luck I’m not sure how to make them right. I used D-rings for the straps. Straps made out of the same material as the pants. If you’ve managed to get here you’ll pretty soon have something that looks like this:

And you’re done!

Oh right! The middle with the belt and all I didn’t include because it’s basically broken my whole cosplay is falling apart. It’s also made out of foam and the fabric is stretchy velour. I would prefer to use crushed velvet but I never found it in a color I liked. Get some belts from second hand AND THEN YOU’RE DONE!

Don’t get a haircut for a couple of months and you’re ready to go! Good luck!
