Domesticity by DawnMalfoy, Not Rated, 4.4k
When Yuuri moves to St Petersburg to train with Victor a lot of things change for the better. Victor is really in love with Yuuri, and is still surprised that he gets to come home to him every day! Awwwww!

The Different Types of Warmth by BeautyButterBae, Explicit, 8.1k
When Victor drags Yuuri out of their apartment on one of the coldest days St. Petersburg has seen in a while, Yuuri is far from pleased. Victor promises to replenish the body heat they’ve both lost. Yuuri is far more pleased with that. Fun!

“Viktor. You’re Russian. How is it that you’re always so easily cold and– Wait,” Yuuri’s eyes fell onto Viktor’s bundled up form under the comforter, “are you wearing my jackets? How many layers have you got on?” SNUGGLES AND CUDDLES DO YOU HEAR ME SCREAMING I LOVE THIS FIC

When it comes to taking their son on the ice for the first time, Yuuri is worried, Victor is patient, and everyone else is helplessly intrusive. LOVE!

Maybe, Victor figures, there are some things, some people, that you just can’t get over. And Yuuri is his. So cute!

Born To Make History by BeautyButterBae, Explicit, 9.2k
Some mornings were like today, where Yuuri sat up in their shared bed, only watching as Victor Nikiforov – the man he had married only a few months earlier – slept peacefully, still disbelieving that all of this had happened, that it was real, that he got so lucky. They’re married and I can’t breATHE THIS IS SO GOOD

Life at Viktor’s apartment in Russia is different than when Yuuri and Viktor had stayed together at Yuuri’s family home in Japan, but it’s a good kind of different. Thumbs up!

Any chance you can explain the AIMH and chicken nuggets thing? I'm lost! And I can't seem to find anything that actually explains it...

LOL okay so some guy on twitter @’d Wendy’s and asked them how many retweets they’d need for Wendy’s to give them a year’s free supply of chicken nuggets. Wendys said 16 million. It became a viral thing and lots of celebrities and companies have been retweeting for him. He’s currently got about 1.8 million retweets.


So the Larries obsessed with AIMH are freaking out that he may actually dethrone their big and only Larrie accomplishment so are trying to @ him to tell him to stop because they won’t have his “nugget fetishizing” get in the way of their gay civil rights issue.

And that’s the story of how the Larries went to war over a tweet about chicken nuggets.

James Potter is going grey

In honour of the grey hair I found on my head today.

Also here: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12391871/1/Going-Grey

When James finally starts going grey, you would have thought the entire bloody world had caught on fire.

It’s Sirius who spots it first, the one shining silver strand in the mass of black hair on James’ head. They’re trooping in, brooms over their shoulders, mud on their quidditch boots, and James has Harry wrapped up under his arm, rubbing his head while Harry laughs at James’ insistence that “You can’t slag off your old man. I would have kicked your arse back in the day.”

“Yeah,” Harry yells, elbowing his father in the side, “back in the day.” Sirius barks a laugh, claps Harry on the back, “Nice one, kid.” James shoots him a glare and he shoves James’ shoulder, “Tough break, mate. Though your kid kicking your arse goes nicely with that grey hair you’ve got there. Very fitting.”

When Lily finds them a few minutes later, Harry is doubled over, barely breathing with laughter, and James and Sirius are nothing more than a tangle of limbs on the now excruciatingly muddy kitchen floor. She pulls out her wand, twirls it deftly between her fingers, calmly threatens to hex them within an inch of their lives if they don’t get up right now and clean the floor.

Hi! Your blog is so great! I'm smiling whole day after reading it. Please make a scenario where mc finds out about rfa + v + saeran secret hobby (like collecting super cute hairpins or sewing soft toys:) ) which he/she is ashamed of 'cause thinks that it is unproper for his/her age, sex, life style or for any other reason and doesn't want to show mc this uncool side of his/herself. I think it may be funny:) Thanks in advance!

Sorry it took so long! Hope you like them^^ 


  • You were on your way back home from somewhere, and Zen’s house was on the way
  • So you decided to stop by to say hi
  • When you arrive, he’s walking back into his house from taking out the garbage
  • He’s only wearing slippers, and you can see his long, bright orange socks with racecars on them
  • “Whoa! You got a party on your feet,” you chuckle
  • He yelps and gets super flustered.
  • “MC! Don’t look!”
  • He runs into his room and emerges with plain black socks
  • But the damage is already done
  • You tell him that you think the socks were pretty cute
  • He admits that he’s collected bright, silly socks over the years
  • They add a little spice to his normally hectic schedule–only around the house though
  • When you keep gushing about them, he finally shows you the different ones
  • He’ll make an exception and wear them around you sometimes


  • Finals call for all nighters
  • He usually wears his little hairpin to keep his bangs out of his eyes
  • But, when he has late nights like this, he pulls out his collection…
  • He has these cute scrunchies and pins to put his hair up in
  • That particular night, he fell asleep with them on
  • In the morning, he remembered he was supposed to meet with you and rushed over to your place
  • You see the cute bunny ear scrunchies tying up his hair in various ponytails and start giggling
  • When he realizes, he’s mortified and starts yanking them out
  • You ask why he didn’t tell you before…or change his pin once in awhile
  • “You might think me childish!”
  • You promise you only think it’s cute and you’ll keep it a secret
  • As long as you can borrow some and you two can get matching ones


  • You were visiting her one Saturday afternoon
  • You offered to make you both some coffee or tea as she was finishing up some last minute paperwork
  • She recently moved things around so you’re a bit confused where the mugs are 
  • You find a huge assortment of them in the back of a cabinet
  • “MC! No, not those!”
  • She’s really embarrassed and tries to shuffle you out of the kitchen
  • But you actually show interest at all the unique mugs she’s collected
  • When she finds this out, she lights up and starts explaining the story of each one
  • You start a tradition where you buy her a mug yearly to add to her collection

  • You go to check it out and find that tangled in blue yarn
  • You try to help her as you wonder where all the yarn is coming from
  • Jumin comes in to see the commotion and silently starts wrapping it up again
  • You realize he’s especially quiet
  • When you see the crocheting needle, you start to put two and two together
  • “Jumin…you crochet? You never told me!”
  • “….It’s not exactly something one brags about.”
  • True
  • He explains that it relaxes him on particularly stressful days
  • He showed you a few pieces that he’s made, like scarves and headbands
  • You ask if he could teach you a few things


  • He was finally moving out to a place with windows
  • But he has so much junk to sort through first, so he calls you for back up
  • You’re in the process of going through his junk closet when you find a bunch of boxes with different dates on them
  • When you open them, you see so many game consoles…Xbox, Gameboy, Gameboy Advance…
  • When he finds you stumbled upon them, he freaks out
  • You thought his was obsessed with collecting cars? Ha.
  • You ask if he actually needs that many of the old consoles….in different colors
  • “Just trade them in for some cash!”
  • “They’re of sentimental value!”
  • You eventually just let him have his way, compromising to put them in the same box though
  • He makes you pinky swear not to tell Yoosung
  • He’d never hear the end of it

  • You find a rather large one and open it
  • “No! Not that bag–”
  • But it’s too late
  • You stumble across a bunch of number 2 pencils with cute designs on them
  • Some have turtles on clouds, some have ice cream erasers, and there were so many…
  • He gets super defensive about, that those were the only cheap pencils
  • After a bit of coaxing, you get him to admit that he likes collecting them
  • They make him feel warm inside…especially when he’s doodling
  • You make a point to buy him pencils whenever you’re out shopping now


  • Jumin had once again mentioned something about V’s 20 spoons in the chatroom
  • After visiting V a few times, you know he only has a few forks and knives
  • So, you ask him about the extra spoons
  • He gets a little blushy, but decides to show them to you
  • Each spoon has an intricate design on the handle
  • He says that he picks one up every time he travels to a new country or city
  • He thinks it’s weird because…they’re just utensils
  • But you actually think it’s really cute

HI, I just read all your fanon vs canon posts and I'm in love? I just wanted to see if i could ask for your take on Oikawa for that? Of course, no pressure, I bet those things take time to write so if you don't have it then don't worry. But thank you so much for the ones you've already written, they're great!!!

ok um. ajdfdkfddf i just wrote 100k+ of oikawa and still this is hard. oikawa is the most difficult character to get down in the history of characters. but lemme try:

fanon oikawa

  • Ego Central Inc
  • so many fangirls. must appease the fangirls. dating all over the place. lives for the attention
  • constantly babbling about aliens (ok i love this one and i live by it but it has to be here because… it is sadly… totally unfounded)
  • utter asshole all the time
  • overworking himself every day, every night
  • super obsessed with his appearance and fashion. so much hair product
  • diva
  • calls himself the great oikawa-san and grand king because he’s so amazing
  • 5000 selfies

canon oikawa

  • ok yeah probably enjoys the attention he gets but honestly just… is gracious and polite with his fangirls? it’s not like he ever tries to get their attention, and he lords it over iwa a single time because he knows it’ll rile him up
  • btw that’s at the end of a segment where he says something to get each of his teammates to their best so i think it’s fair to assume that’s not even a “lol look at me i’m so great” that’s just him knowing what’s going to get iwa on his a game (and if it’s teasing so be it)
  • actually super focused on other people. like… um. this was… a plotline. of a main character. kageyama feels inferior to oikawa because oikawa is spectacular at listening to people and freaking adjusting to them
  • even if they’re first years. like, kindaichi tells him he needs something. oikawa, since he’s experienced, thinks he’s wrong, but instead of being like “lol i know best shut up” he’s like “ok, i hear you, let’s keep trying it the same way, alright?”
  • his reaction to being called grand king is basically “wtf”
  • the self obsessed shit is an act oh my god
  • actually probably pretty responsible with not overworking himself when he’s thinking clearly. certainly does what he can to make sure his team doesn’t overwork themselves
  • calculated, smart
  • most of his pictures on his phone are of his nephew or… omg… sunsets? what a sappy lil nerd
  • ok yeah he’s a dickhead but he also helps kageyama in the end because he’s a softie
  • “plaid with plaid is a good look because it matches, right? that’s how fashion works, right?”
  • has never mentioned his hair ever and has the same hair as a child so honestly how do we even know he does his hair. maybe he fucking rolls out of bed looking like that.
  • ok no he definitely knows what a pretty face can get him and uses it to his advantage, so he probably cultivates his looks, but i don’t see why people think he’s obsessed with his own looks
  • childish, insecure, but also really focused on other people and how to be his best for them? he is a Good Boy
  • polite and kind with his fanclub and still gets broken up with. doesn’t know what he did wrong. is probably just a bit of a dork when dating, poor thing
  • crushed by the fear of losing. actually handles losing pretty well? keeps his team afloat, backs up iwa quickly. is at the match between his greatest rivals the next day, ready to learn. i’m so proud of him.
  • i really love oikawa tooru

anonymous asked:

Hey leaque did you hear about the news that Matt Reeves is no longer going to direct the Batman film? I was wondering your opinion on the situation as I'm worried for the film, I don't think it will turn out bad but I do want them to find a good director.

i’m answering this a lot more broadly because i have people constantly freaking out in my inbox but, listen…. it might be that i know jack shit about the way films are being constructed at their early stages…. maybe i have absolutely zero sense of time and scheduling…. but… listen, listen…. we don’t even have a proper trailer for justice league yet. the wonder woman film is four months away. i’m still contemplating scenes from suicide squad and BvS, and those came out last year. everyone needs to collectively take a deep breath and massively chill about the batman film, both audience and reporters. there’s been such a mass hysteria, such pressure put on every possible name even partially associated with the movie, that i can physically feel people’s need not to want to work on The Batman just because they know there was backlash before the film even had a single sentence written as a script

we didn’t have a director. then affleck was set to direct. then affleck stepped down (for very obvious, logical and justified reasons). then matt reeves was set to direct. now he’s apparently stepped down too? there were talks about ben affleck not wanting to be batman anymore at some point as well? it doesn’t matter. it doesn’t matter if any or all of the above are true. it doesn’t. it simply doesn’t. we’re putting everyone who dares to work on the film on some form of pedestal and at this point there are tangible waves radiating from every vulture that calls themselves a fan trying to find a crack in the film’s making to such an obsessive degree, we’re now creating those cracks. let them breathe. let them work through this. let them create instead of worrying every misstep will be reported as the absolute truth in which the film’s direction is heading to (or, better yet, isn’t heading to)

i can guarantee you these type of changes, or even lack of changes, happen about tenfold in other films but they rarely if ever get reported. it’s a movie that’s bound to change hands, minds, ideas, ways. until someone tells you the film has been cancelled, your only job is to get hyped until the date you have to sit your ass down in front of a screen and freak out over a batman film unraveling before your eyes

(and the soundtrack)

(i bet the soundtrack is gonna make me cry like the weak, malleable, overemotional target audience i’m part of :( )

The Foxhole Court, Chapter 12 – Road Trip To Embarrass… Who Again?

captain-cate  asked:

If it's not too much trouble, can I please have the rfa reacting to an mc who was/is in the circus? (Like an acrobat, juggler, contortionist etc.). Thank you so much and I'm obsessed with your blog so far! Have a great day sweetie.

Sorry its late! I would’ve finished by noon but it’s been a hectic day. Aight so I saw contortionist, and I had to do it lmao. So MC will be a contortionist here. :)) enjoy!!


  • You were in the bedroom, practicing. Figuring out some new moves for the next tour.
  • Zen came in while your leg was tucked behind your head and you were just getting the other one to go over.
  • Oh my god he was so shook
  • He almost thought you broke both your legs but you waved excitedly at him 
  • “MC What the hell are you doing?” Didn’t mean for it to come off wrongly, he was just so shocked. 
  • “I’m practicing.. for the tour. Didn’t I.. oh fuck I didn’t tell you..”
  • “NO???” Zen chill. 
  • He was a bit flustered when you showed him your moves. 
  • How the hell can you bend that far?
  • He started really enjoying it for personal reasons ;) 
  • He was kind of disappointed you had to tour and couldn’t see you as much but he didn’t stop you because it wouldn’t be fair. 
  • He’s pretty busy too.
  • He goes to your shows and is in absolute awe
  • But that strongman better watch it..


  • You wanted to surprise him so you waited for him in his room before he came back from his classes. 
  • You rested your arms on your hands, being held up by your elbows and bent your legs back over your head. 
  • When he came in you just waved with your foot. 
  • You giggled and reverted a normal position. 
  • He likes taking pictures with you and telling his peers how cool his girlfriend is. 
  • If anybody called you a freak he’d actually roast the fuck out of them 
  • Precious boy to cold hearted protecter in 0.001 seconds
  • He’s like a little kid when he goes to your shows, cotton candy in one hand and like 3 other snacks in the other. 
  • Watched with wide eyes while you performed. 
  • The other performers were amazing but he honestly thought you were the best.


  • You walked out of the kitchen in a strange position. 
  • “Jaehee look!” 
  • You nearly gave the woman a heart attack, she dropped a mug and put a hand on her chest. 
  • “MC how did you…” She looked a bit horrified. 
  • “Practice haha..” you shot her finger guns.. with your toes. 
  • Jaehee didn’t know anything about your work. She never went to circuses as a child. 
  • She’d seen some things on television. She apologized for her possibly offensive reaction. She was surprised is all. 
  • Took her a while to get use to seeing you practice. She thought it was just really odd at first but she just became more and more intrigued by you. 
  • Excitedly watches you in the crowd at your shows. 
  • Heard some disrespectful comments about your coworkers and even you, she didn’t thing twice about pointing them out and teaching them lesson. 
  • You were her #1 supporter, and still are. Now it’s her turn to support you!


  • Found you practicing one day in a very provocative position. He cleared his throat but kept his composure. 
  • “MC? What are you doing?”
  • “Just practicing..”
  • “Oh I see… wait wha-” 
  • You have to explain a lot because he has 0 idea about your work other than what he’s previously seen, which wasn’t much. 
  • Although it’s VERY new to him he’s reasonably amazed at your work. 
  • He builds a entire room for you to practice in, all the equipment you need is easily accessible from your home. 
  • He goes to your shows and is on the edge of his seat the entire time. 
  • He never went to these things as a child but he can see how people find these entertaining 
  • Offers to buy the entire show to ensure you and all of the other performers are treated well. 
  • You kindly decline, you’re satisfied with the current owners. 
  • Anything for his kitten ( ͡^ ͜ʖ ͡^)

Saeyoung/ 707

  • When he saw you he just.. gasped. 
  • “My dear 606 is… elastic girl!” He nearly knocked you down from getting so close.
  • “Does this make me your Mr. Incredible” he tried whispering seductively but his breath smelled like lais.
  • You pointed an accusing foot at him “YOU CHEATED ON HONEY BUDDHA” 
  • He’s so ashamed he doesn’t kiss you for the rest of the day.
  • This got off track lmao anyway
  • He tried to mimic you, he almost broke both his legs trying. 
  • You’re considering having to put restraints on him so he would stop.
  • But he would probably enjoy that. 
  • He goes to as many shows as he can or he watches livestreams, but if he goes you bet he’s screaming from the crowd. 
  • He can’t go too often though because of his job.

  • You two were a match made in heaven tbh
the secret santa au

suggested by @iggydabirdkid! at literally 11:59 PM but it’s still december 1st nonetheless. will you ever know what sombra’s gift is? probably not.

  • one of the truly beautiful traditions (started by tracer) of overwatch is the yearly secret santa
  • everyone from overwatch’s invited, and their significant others, which means that talon’s invited too.
  • it’s easier to get gifts for some than it is for others.
  • take winston
  • last year, lena bought him a monthly delivery of a ten-kg jar of peanut butter (lasting for a year) and no one had ever seen him look so happy
  • and then you have sombra and no one knows anything about her so congrats to that lovely person who has to get her a gift
  • they all sit around in a circle on december 1st and lena claps her hands like a little kid and widow pretends not to be endeared
  • s76 holds a santa hat in his lap, filled with slips of paper
  • one by one, each person (or robot) comes up and takes a paper
  • (and because i’m symbra TRASH this is mostly gonna follow their quest for gifts)
  • symmetra opens her slip and sees, in neatly printed, bright purple words, ‘SOMBRA’.
  • she kinda freaks out a little bc she expected to get bastion or something but then she just sits and thinks.
  • while satya’s thinking, sombra retrieves her slip, and sees symmetra’s name written on it in pastel blue
  • internally she’s like ‘YASSSSS BISHHH’ because she has a massive crush on satya but she keeps a poker face
  • she looks up to see satya studying her intently, and blinks.
  • ‘hey, princesita!’ she calls, and satya looks up, flushing, and she’s really cute and- wait. up. her eyes went up.
  • up. which means they were down before. which means they were looking at sombra’s lips. sombra files that away and makes a mental note to obsess over it later.
  • ‘what ya lookin’ at?’
  • satya blinks at her, then turns and walks away. sombra looks after her, confused.
  • ‘don’t mind her!’ lena calls, and then abruptly there is an orange mass flying at her. tracer comes to a stop just in front of her, but her momentum sends them both tumbling.
  • lena leans in close. ‘she’s a bit shy around people she likes.’
  • and then she blinks away, and sombra’s eyes go wide.
  • likes. satya likes her.
  • oh.
  • she spends the next twenty-four days at literally every store in the world (courtesy of hacking)
  • jewelry? would satya like jewelry? no. she can make her own out of hard light. sombra blows out a sigh and speeds past to the next store.
  • ‘sombra,’ gabe says over the com. ‘we’re on a mission.’
  • ‘and tokyo has some of the best gift stores in the world.’ sombra snaps. she got two hours of sleep last night and she’s really stressed. ‘your point?’
  • ‘that we’re still part of a team dedicated to killing people and you can’t just leave. sombra, just get her something and come back.’
  • sombra yanks her fingers through her hair frustratedly. ‘i can’t just get her something, gabriel, amélie, you don’t understand! i have to make a good impression and she’s beautiful and kind and i want her to trust me because when she smiles i feel like my insides have reoriented themselves and i just want her to like me, and so many people don’t that it’s not hard to think she won’t either, but i just really want her to smile at me and think i’m a good person and i need- joder, i just need a gift!’
  • ‘well, here we are,’ gabe says, and sombra turns to see amélie and gabriel, dressed in street clothes, widow with aviators perched stylishly atop her nose.
  • ‘first,’ widow says, rubbing her hands together, ‘you need an element.’
  • ‘a.. wha?’
  • ‘element. let’s see. what does satya like?’
  • ‘i don’t know- wait, actually, i do. neat things. pretty things. useful things?’
  • ‘so aesthetic, maybe a bit of practicality. let me guess. blue. good. gabriel?’
  • ‘you’ll need some sort of blue cloth, perhaps. and something to counter it- perhaps purple would work, considering your colour scheme. it has to be something from the heart.’
  • ‘why- i thought the mission-’
  • ‘the mission can fuck itself. we’re here for my little sister.’ 
  • ‘and my daughter,’ gabe adds, and sombra’s legitimately tearing up a little.
  • widow whips a cell phone out of her leather trench coat and dials a number, speaking in rapid-fire french. she looks up after a moment.
  • ‘paris fashion boutique. they can have premium blue silk in ten minutes.’
  • ‘make it two,’ gabe says grimly, and moves through the rack of japanese silk, picking out a light purple number and reaching for one of the daggers in widow’s boot. he slices through the cloth, cuts it into the shape of symmetra’s design spray.
  • widow hangs up. ‘got it.’ she tosses a really expensive package of blue silk at him, and he takes it, cutting it into a cool design and gluing the two together. a clerk runs toward them, staring at the scraps of cloth that are probably worth more than a few million dollars, and amélie tosses a cheque down before they disappear.
  • ‘think about it,’ gabe says as they hold onto the grappling hook (which is attached to a nearby plane). ‘what do you think symmetra would appreciate?’
  • ‘i don’t know.’
  • ‘well, what do you like?’
  • ‘hacking. and horchata caliente. and girls.’
  • ‘hey, amélie!’ gabe shouts. ‘is symmetra into girls?’
  • amélie blinks, shrugs. gabe sighs.
  • ‘we’ll think of something.’
  • they do.
  • the day rolls around, and sombra approaches symmetra nervously.
  • ‘hi,’ she says, hands behind her back, and satya looks at her and grins. sombra tingles.
  • ‘hello,’ she says. ‘did we get each other?’
  • ‘it seems so.’
  • ‘excellent! i’ll go first.’
  • symmetra reaches out, and sombra blanks, because satya’s touching her hand oh my god she may not live to see tomorrow oh my god oh my god fuCK HOLY FRICK WHAT DOES SHE DO DOES SHE- ARE HER HANDS SWEATY THIS IS BAD OH HECK HECKITY HECK
  • symmetra smiles. ‘and… done!’
  • sombra blinks, looks down, and flexes her fingers to see if they’re still in shock. to her surprise, her nails do something weird and suddenly she has fuckin claws like wolverine what the hell
  • they’re purple. sombra appreciates that.
  • ‘there.’ satya smiles adorably.
  • silence.
  • ‘um. i didn’t mean to-’
  • satya kisses her breathless.
  • she pulls back after a moment, fingers skating over sombra’s jaw, and for the first time in her full however many years of life, sombra’s rendered speechless.
  • ‘the gift-’ sombra stutters, and satya smiles at her, and her heart melts.
  • ‘we have time for the gift, later.’
  • she pulls her close.
  • ‘right now, i have you. and you’re the best present i could wish for.’

So I've been looking at the tumblr lifting community's posts for awhile now and I'm obsessed and amazed; I've never lifted before but I really want to it looks so fun and I want free cute shit, but I'm so so scared!! How do I get over that and what/where would you recommend lifting for my very first time ever? Any tips or advice? I worship y'all 🙏🏼

oooookay lil nugget here we go.

first off - its okay to be scared. its actually better if you keep a little piece of you thats always scared, no matter if you’re experienced or a beginner. thats something that helps you keep track of what’s going on around you and helps you not get caught. when you get cocky or over confident, thats when trouble starts.

i cannot stress how important it is to start small.
start small.
start sosososososo small.

like a lipgloss from walmart or one plain shirt from old navy. maybe a lil pack of beads from hobby lobby. whatever you do, do it small.

this lowers the chance of you getting caught, and the chance of you freaking out more.

do this a couple times. lil thing here, lil thing there. this builds confidence. the more confident you are with yourself, the more likely you are to start pulling in bigger hauls.

be patient. dont rush anything. this is by no means a competition. this whole process of confidence-gaining takes weeks, maybe months for some people.

and another thing - the majority of us on here that are pulling in a shit ton of stuff? we’ve been doing this for years. ive been lifting for 3/almost 4 years now. do not feel like you have to hurry and catch up to us.

secondly -do your homework. read through people’s tip pages on here. read about hooks, magnets, detachers, keys, all the different types of security tags, concealment methods, horror stories - ANYTHING. everything will be helpful down the road. read up on how other people got caught so you dont make the same mistakes. read up on how that girl managed to bag 3 naked palettes and 15 Kat Von D liquid lipsticks. learn about cam placement and how JCP Sephora is a place to stay away from. learn SA behavior and how to tell if they are being nice or plain sus. Learn how to tell if a bag is going to be a good lifting partner or if its going to be a hassle getting things inside. get familiar with every aspect of this community. follow as many people as you can. get inspiration from everyone. learn this life. live it. breathe it.

thirdly - try and pair up with an experienced buddy. i have found this to be so helpful. you get to see first hand how they do what they do. you get to see them in action, and learn their methods. however, know that going out with more than 2 other people is sure to get you noticed and tailed. keep the lil lifting group to either a pair or 3 people. make sure you can trust them. make sure you know them.

Old Navy: they dont tag anything other than heavy coats and sweaters, some dresses, jeans, and in the summer some shorts. i re-vamped my whole wardrobe this summer courtesy of ON, but ive seen on here that they’ve started source tagging…. which makes me sad. so double check before you out anything into your bag.
Hobby Lobby: there are like 7 cams per store all focused on the cashiers. go crazy. get your much needed art supplies. this is a great store for beginners - and other lifters who love crafting.
Cotton On: nothing, and i mean NOTHING is tagged. idk why, but these hoes never tag anything and it makes me wonder what they’re even doing. i got christmas gifts for my brothers here this year, so i highly recommend this store. super easy.
Dillard’s: do not let the large size of the store intimidate you - this place is heaven. sometimes you’ll get lucky and somethings been left off the rack and untagged. sometimes theres that teally cute wallet that you’ve wanted for a while and it doesnt have a single tag on it. go for it. conceal in the dressing rooms. trust me. formal dresses? no tags. (from what ive seen, and ive been to 3 Dillard’s in 2 different cities.) their desinger jewelrythat they keep down there? go for it. none of its source tagged or anything. i walked out once with 5 pairs of mate spade earrings and 2 wallets worth the 100 each. just pay attention to your surroundings and you’ll do just fine.

- in the winter its cold as dicks, so wear sweaters. utilize these babies for all they’re worth. 1. sleeves are great for concealing small items like jewelry and lipsticks. 2. “i am so hot from all this shopping, is it okay if i have one of your bags to carry my sweater in? i would really appreciate it” (note: this only works with really nice SAs. some will be bitches and shut you down. you might have to try a couple of stores before you get one. and now you have a free shopping bag!) 3. put your purse in the crook of your elbow and drape your sweater over it. this helps conceal how big your purse is to begin with and hide how much its increased in size when you’re walking out. 4. idk they’re warm and fuzzy. they make me happy.
- boots: stick things in there in case you forgot your purse or something. you can stick small things like jewelry and face masks down in there, its great.
- go through your mom’s closet. or your aunt’s. grandmother’s. rich best friend, i dont care. more often than not, they have a couple of extra shopping bags from stores they’ve been too. my mom has Bath and Body Works for days, along with a couple of Coach bags and Ralph Lauren. these shopper bags can be used in the same way as a purse for hiding things in them. hide them in yoir bag on the way into a mall, and then in the bathroom, take out your lifted clothing and stuff one of the bags. that way, when you walk into other stores, the SAs think you’ve bought things from other stores. be careful and know the layout of the mall you’re in though, because if you’re carrying around an Urban Outfitters bag and theres no UO, then you’ve gone and fucked yourself.
- be cautious, be wary, and not get greedy. get in, get out, and live to lift another day.

hope you’ll find some use for all this nonsense, good luck on starting your hobby of lifting and i hope to see some beautiful hauls from you guys!

I will forever be bitter about the fact that Peril, a character who not only canonly has bpd but was also a survivor of extreme parental abuse, was intensely hated for a phase in the fandom before she got a book from her perspective. Like, there was all sorts of shit about her being a horrible character bc she ‘lied to Clay’ and 'killed so many dragons and never apologized’ and she was 'creepily obsessed with Clay, no wonder Tsunami and the others hate her’ and just an all-around clusterfuck of victem-blaming and 'if you like this character you’re shit’ kinda stuff going around.

I still find it sad that we had to get an entire book from her perspective before people acknowledged that she lead a pretty shitty life. Like, come on, in the first book we see Scarlet lying to her, manipulating her, killing her friends and then blaming her for it, forcing her to 'put on a show’ in the killing ring and if the prisoners don’t die to her satisfaction she’ll punish her, her showing clear signs of her being severely touch and affection-starved (to the point where she thought her abuser was the only person who cared about her because everyone treated her like a monster and Scarlet called it her ONLY virtue). It was honestly so fucking gross to see people getting so pissy over her being manipulated into killing prisoners of war (whose lives held no value anyways, this is a fucking WAR other dragons did FAR worse) so that she wouldn’t get shit from the ONLY person who pretended to care about her and then getting all freaked out about her being posessive of the only dragon in the world who actually showed her empathy and kindness and physical affection. We had all the evidence that we needed to hate on how shitty (and thus brilliant for a villain) Scarlet was but NO, we HAD to hate on the mentally ill abuse victem. Fucking pathetic.

Companions and soles reaction to a weak and helpless-looking teenager riding a tamed giant legendary albino deathclaw (sorry I'm just obsessed with deathclaws I fcking luv them and I wish so hard to tame them and hav them as a companion!) ^^

You’d be surprised at what you can encounter out in the wasteland.

Cait: “It’s tame, right? It better be fuckin’ tame. Deathclaw or no deathclaw, if that kid sics their beast on us, I’m'a kick the shit out of ‘em.” Once Cait is properly assured that, yes, the Deathclaw is tame, and that the teen means no harm, she calms down a bit. “Right. Alright. Deadly Beastie is good beastie, sure.” She shoots Sole a side-eyeing look. “I need a drink.”

Codsworth: You wouldn’t think a robot could faint. The explanation is something about ‘overloaded circuits’ and ‘an overheated central processor,’ but the effect is the same; Codsworth saw the deathclaw and collapsed.

Curie: She… forgets, at first, that deathclaws are not friends. “Oh! They are docile, yes?” Without a moment of hesitation, she walks over, pulling a clipboard from somewhere on her person. She’s scrabbling for a pen as well, when the deathclaw breathes hot air from it’s nostrils, growling low in its throat to warn her away. A little sheepish, Curie gives the creature and its rider some space.

Danse: “This- This is not-” He’s not entirely sure what to make of the sight. A deathclaw? Being ridden? Ridiculous. Impossible! And by a sickly adolescent no less. But, as if sensing his thoughts, the deathclaw has its dark, piercing eyes on him, and doesn’t seem to like him whatsoever. The feeling is mutual. Sole can go interact with the creature, but Danse stays a healthy thirty feet away at all times.

Deacon: He insists on riding it. The teenager currently doing so explains that this is a terrible idea, to which Deacon replies with, “Terrible ideas are kind of my thing. Just ask my coworkers.” He has his heart set on riding the creature. Everyone present refuses to let him do so, so he goes along with it… Until no one’s looking. At which point he throws a leg over the beast and cries, “Yee-haw!” It does not end well.

Dogmeat: Doesn’t like the deathclaw at all. Nope. Nope, no like. No good. He growls and whines whenever he’s forced to be around the best, and when he’s not forced, he makes himself scarce and is nowhere to be found outside of mealtimes. He only appears when his bowl is full and when the deathclaw is away.

Hancock: “Either I’m tripping, or I’m seeing some really cool shit right now.” Proceeds to take a long drag from his cigarette and engage in an intense staring contest with the deathclaw.

Nick Valentine: “Are you sure that’s safe?” He sounds more grumpy than anything, though also a bit concerned. “Would a dog not be less… Uh, ostentatious?” After explaining the meaning of ostentatious (showy, for those not equipped with fancy Pre-War vocabulary) Valentine relents that a deathclaw is a bit more intimidating than your average guard dog. Though he still worries about the teen.

MacCready: “No.” He shakes his head, turning on his heel and pointedly stalking the other way. “I don’t care if it’s fu- freaking tamed.” His voice cracks on the not-swear. “Come get me when the giant goddamn people eater is two miles away! They can smell fear, you know!”

Piper: “Oh my god,” she whispers. “This could be the story of the century.” She stares, desperately, at the creature before her, her camera clutched in a white-knuckle grip. No flash photography, the teen had said. Piper is dying inside.

Preston: “Uhhh…” His eyes move between the deathclaw, the teen, and Sole, who’s staring at him, waiting for him to say something. Preston swallows. “I guess it’s too hopeful to ask if he’s a vegetarian, huh?”

Strong: He attempts to wrestle the deathclaw.

X6-88: “I… have not encountered a creature like this before.” It’s then that something magical happens. X6 walks forward, closer, and closer, coming up to the deathclaw just inches away from the creature’s massive jaws. Much to the amazement of onlookers, X6 reaches a hand out and begins fondly petting the beast, causing it to let out a pleased rumble resembling a purr. With his back to Sole, the Courser speaks. “I want one.”

((Thanks for the ask, anon! Also… with the new Wasteland Workshop DLC, this fantasy can be yours. Deacon and I are calling our deathclaw Fluffy.))


So “Passion” is such a thrilling, emotional and heartbreaking episode, and yet every single time I watch it and get to this part I have to stop, giggle like an idiot, rewind, watch it again, stop and laugh my ass off for a few minutes before I can continue watching. Just take a look at this scene! It’s so ridiculous! Joyce is getting home with a huge bag of oranges. Like that’s the ONLY thing she bought at the store. What do you need so many oranges for, Joyce? WHAT FOR? I need to know! But that’s just the beginning, really, because I find every single frame in this scene absolutely hilarious. So she’s trying to hurry and get inside because she knows Angel is bad news, that’s all she knows. So he intercepts her and the bag falls to the ground and all the oranges fall all over the place. But suddenly Joyce doesn’t care anymore about the oranges, she’s just searching her purse for her keys. Like who does that? You just spent your entire salary, apparently, on oranges and now you don’t care about them? Pick up those oranges, Joyce! So Angelus comes to the rescue. And you can say what you want about Angelus, but that’s some chivalrous thing right there. He stoops down and starts picking up the oranges for Joyce. But instead of picking them up he starts sort of juggling the oranges? And then Joyce is trying to get her keys and Angelus continues juggling oranges, but then one of the oranges slips away from his grasp and Joyce stares at the orange flying away, like “Oh damn, there goes my orange! I won’t get it back ever again! I needed that orange! I NEEDED THAT ORANGE!” So NOW you care about the oranges? I guess that’s the meaning of “you don’t know what you got till it’s gone”. See, we were fooled! We thought that was about losing people we love, but no! IT’S ABOUT ORANGES! And Angelus might be a gentleman here but he sucks at picking up oranges, because by the time the scene ends you can see like 4 or 5 oranges scattered on the floor. And Joyce! Joyce, what are you still doing there worrying about the freaking oranges? You should’ve left Angelus right there with his picking-up-oranges obsession and get inside your house, you mad woman! 

So yeah, sorry, these are some of the things that go through my head when I watch an episode for the millionth time.

I'm having a really rough day - nothing's going right and I've been on the recovery for my depression for over a year now and all of a sudden I can feel myself slipping and I was wondering if you would write some sterek fluff to cheer me up?

Stiles skids into Love At First Bite and slows to a halt. “Woah, god, I don’t know where to start!”

Allison and Scott follow him in, giggling at each other, Scott’s fingers twirling in Allison’s hair. Stiles rolls his eyes at them fondly and goes back to what’s important here.

The cakes.

He stares up at a four tiered chocolate cake with cascading cream roses trailing down the side. The detail in the roses is incredible and Stiles feels his mouth watering. He wants to know if they taste as sweet as they look—

“Don’t touch that.”

He jumps backwards and almost falls into a brick wall.

“Jeez,” he twists and sees it is not, in fact, a wall, but a ridiculously hot specimen of a man with an angry glare on his face. “Sorry, man, is this one for you?”

The man snorts, folding his arms and inclining his head at the cake. “No, I made that one.”

“Oh my god,” Stiles feels his mouth fall open. “You’re Derek Hale?”

Derek Hale’s ridiculously beautiful eyes narrow suspiciously at him. It’s really not fair. Stiles has been lusting after his cakes for years. Now he knows Derek isn’t some tiny old man with greying hair and spectacles he’s doomed. His dick is doomed. He’s never going to get a more delicious package than Derek Hale plus his cakes. He’s ruined for life.

Obviously I ship the hell out of them????? I can easily say they’re one of the biggest OTP’s I’ve eVER had ever and I love them so much sometimes I can’t even breaTHE but after this movie I seriously think that even in the tiniest form, it was in Peter Jackson’s head, or Richard’s or Martin’s, that Thorin and Bilbo had romantic feelings for one another. Even if it’s never clearly stated by anyone or ever come to light later down the road, I honestly believe this. AND HERE’S WHY

  • This film is FULL - and I meAN full - of parallels between Thorin and Bilbo and Kili and Tauriel. THERE ARE SO MANY I HONESTLY CAN’T REMEMBER THEM ALL??? Not to mention the few that were in ’Desolation’. And believe it or not, this might be the most important factor here because these films are painstakingly edited and quadruple checked for every imperfection. There’s always last minute changes if the director doesn’t like the way someone’s freaking makeup looks in a 3-second shot. SO, it was a conscious decision to have these parallels. You could perhaps pass off the ones in ’Desolation’ as coincidence, but ’Five Armies’ constantly jumps the audience from similar scene to similar scene between these two pairs. [SPOILERS] Bilbo and Tauriel have the same reaction when they realize their partners are in immediate danger from the trap set by Azog. Bilbo and Tauriel both tell off people who try to prevent them from going after their partners (Gandalf with Bilbo and Thranduil with Tauriel). Then later, we have Bilbo grieving over Thorin’s dead body, and then they cut right to Tauriel doing the same thing with Kili. YOU CAN’T tell me this is a coincidence. Peter Jackson wanted this, he wanted the audience to feel some sort of correlation between the two pairs of characters. There’s a few other small parallels to be found, but those were the huge ones.
  • Why did Thorin immediately choose Bilbo to trust above all of the other dwarves? We’ve seen them become close over the journey, but even I can admit that he was much closer with Balin, and especially moreso with Dwalin. I’ve seen and read countless statements by Graham McTavish and Richard that the two dwarves not only grew up together, but that they’re basically best friends. That Dwalin is the one Thorin trusts the most, and will go to anything with. So with much closer ties to others, not to mention his own nephews, we’re never given a reason as to why he trusts Bilbo so immediately, and the ONLY other thing I can think of us that he had feelings for Bilbo. 
  • This one might be a little silly, but in relation to Thorin trusting only Bilbo, even earlier on, I need to mention Bilbo standing next to Thorin’s throne in one of the scenes. This has to mean something, as Balin and Dwalin (again, having much closer relationships with Thorin), are down at the bottom of the steps reporting about their progress on the search for the Arkenstone. Which begs the question, what was Bilbo doing in there in the first place? Obviously he wasn’t reporting alongside the other dwarves, but just hanging out in the throne room with Thorin? There’s no real explanation for this, but I like to think that what we don’t see is Bilbo trying his best to be by Thorin’s side as much as possible. Making sure he eats, and providing solid, if probably silent, company. This could explain why Thorin trusts him above everyone else in his sickness, but again, I really feel like there was a lot of symbolism going on with Bilbo perched up by that throne with Thorin while Dwalin and Balin were below them. 
  • Bilbo was the only one who was able to bring Thorin back to himself, even if for small moments. Even Fili and Kili returning from Laketown, while Thorin had no idea if they’d even survived Smaug’s attack or not, did not bring him the joy that Bilbo’s little talk about the acorn had. Again, this was a conscious decision by the writers to make Bilbo’s relationship with the king the most important in the whole freaking movie. And I really can’t see Bilbo being the only one to pull him from his sickness being anything other than Thorin already having feelings for him.
  • Thorin, in his horrible sickness, who “will not part with a single coin” of the treasure, gives Bilbo a piece of it worth more than all of his homeland. This is so important. Thorin was level 100 sick at this point, ready to go to war, but somewhere in his mind he was still worried about Bilbo. He still cared about him, and willingly gave him such a priceless piece of the treasure he was so obsessed with. I think that says enough on its own.
  • Not only is Bilbo the only one able to make Thorin himself in a small moment, but it’s his voice that Thorin hears at the peak of his insanity, just before he breaks from it. The last in a string of other voices, and clear as a bell. ANOTHER decision made by PJ that isn’t a coincidence. Obviously Bilbo’s words meant more to Thorin than anyone else’s, and pulled him from the sickness.
  • Apart from the parallels with Kili and Tauriel, I think the hugest and most obvious hint at Thorin and Bilbo being in love with each other, was Bilbo being unable to say that Thorin was his friend to Balin. AND IT’S SO IMPORTANT that it was Balin that he couldn’t say it to. Because Balin knew. Pay attention to his expression when Bilbo is trying so hard to say what Thorin was to him. It’s an “I know, you don’t have to say it”, look and you cannot tell me otherwise. I believe that Bilbo wanted to say that Thorin was his friend because he’s already lost a friend. If he admits out loud that he was in love with Thorin, it’ll be like losing him all over again, but as so much more. So he wants to tell Balin that he was his friend, but the look on Balin’s face let’s him know that he knows better. So he says nothing. It’s only months and months later, in front of a group of hobbit who wouldn’t know any better, that Bilbo finally says that Thorin was his friend. He still hesitates, because he’s still not sure if he wants to admit otherwise, but in the end, he can’t bring himself to. 
  • Bilbo never married. I like to believe that perhaps the filmmakers/actors wanted this whole “maybe he was in love with Thorin” to explain that. 
  • Thorin’s death isn’t in the tent. YET ANOTHER decision by the writers and PJ, to change this scene so that instead of Thorin being surrounded by healers and probably the rest of the dwarves, he and Bilbo are alone together as he dies. It apparently was extremely important in this adaptation where their relationship is the key relationship in the series, that Thorin die in Bilbo’s arms (and quite literally at that). Bilbo gets his only last words, Bilbo holds onto him as he passes. I’d also like to point out the not-very-subtle shot during this where it’s just a close-up on almost just their mouths, and at a perfect angle for a kiss no less. (similar to Tauriel’s goodbye kiss to Kili.)

JUST okay wow I’ll shut up now and I’m sure there’s more that I’m just not recalling, but so much of these were decisions that I know were made by people working on the movie. Things like this don’t just happen on accident when movies are checked and checked a thousand times over. Especially from someone like PJ who will change a character’s entire design months before the movie is supposed to be released because he doesn’t like how it looks. I truly believe that there was a romantic love between Thorin and Bilbo, and that there were some people working on the movie that were aware of it.

The dog was easily the height of his chest, and the young woman walking it could have only come up to his shoulder. But she was just cheerfully walking along beside the dog, chatting and laughing happily with a redheaded young woman. The dog was a big black beast—he didn’t know the breed then, nor did he particularly care, but it whined pitifully when its equally dark-haired owner paused to read a street sign. She just giggled and reached out a hand to ruffle its fur, and the giant’s tail wagged happily.

The Answer

The other day I randomly had the thought: what if Rey and Ben really are siblings/cousins? The theory has been so prevalent right from the start even though there’s absolutely no evidence of it in the source material, but then again there was never any evidence of Luke and Leia being twins before it was revealed either. I don’t have the need for Reylo to become canon as long as we get that “interesting relationship” JJ talked about in the commentary, but even if it ends up being platonic the idea of them being related is just to weird to me at this point. So I spend a few minutes kind of low key freaking out over the possibility, and then my shuffled playlist decides to save me from thinking to hard on it by playing this song:

The Answer by Savages which is my favorite track from Spotify’s Kylo Ren playlist. I think the lyrics below perfectly illustrates what we have been saying all along about Kylo being attracted to Rey, albeit in a rather don’t-know-how-to-romance-a-girl-without-being-an-obsessive-jerk kind of way. I don’t pretend to be certain about anything about what’s going to happen in episode VIII and IX, but this song makes the possibility of Reylo as the endgame almost too obvious.

anonymous asked:

What are ur thoughts on yoko ono? I'm researching her art and I'm thinking abt her as a person I can't remember any actually real like bad things she did I guess but u seem to know the dirt I just wanna know b4 I say I'm a fan ya know? Or just to know about her all around character and it's hard to look it up bc ppl mostly say she evil bc she"broke up the beatlez""". You know? Anyways thank u.

Ye I gotchu. The thing is, when people say they hate her because she broke up the beatles, what they are seeing is that she’s not a very likable person. But they won’t put in the time or effort to figure out why. “She broke up the beatles!!!” is a lazy excuse for an underlying problem. Kudos for doing some research first. GET READY FOR A SHITBOAT OF INFORMATION.

How do you define a really bad person? She certainly didn’t kill anyone, but I definitely don’t like her. Many many many many people she has interacted with have given accounts of her manipulative and obsessive behavior, and she was a lost cause to me once these behaviors began to affect John and his family. 

Ironically enough, she was actually our commencement speaker at Pratt a few years ago.

The first thing I feel I have to say is that I don’t believe she broke up The Beatles. Ringo had already left once and George walked out during the recording of Get Back. John had previously expressed his desire to leave but Paul was insistent on keeping the group together, and I’m glad that was the case. Otherwise we wouldn’t have Abbey Road.

If I want to be nice about her relationship with John, I would say half of it was unhealthy because they fueled each other’s bad habits, and the other half was unhealthy because they were actively abusive to one another. I would never say that they didn’t love one another, but I would say that their relationship was harmful. Here is a timeline of their relationship [x]

Let’s start with how Yoko met John. The popular story is that John was invited to one of her shows by a third party. The reality is that she had been… basically stalking him (while they were each married to other people), and persisted even after receiving no response.

“On many levels she was very manipulative. I think she knew exactly what she was doing from day one. She played it innocent, but I think she had it all planned.”

-Julian Lennon [x]

This is a passage from Peter Brown’s book (Brian Epstein’s second hand man, who was also featured in a line from The Ballad of John and Yoko), The Love You Make: An Insider’s Story of the Beatles. [x]

John and Yoko were both addicted to heroin from the late 60s to early 70s. John stated that it was because of the lack of acceptance Yoko was receiving from friends and the general public. Although this turmoil affected the both of them, it is a prime example of the bad habits they shared, and not a nurturing environment for a healthy relationship.

“Heroin. It just was not too much fun. I never injected it or anything. We sniffed a little when we were in real pain. I mean we just couldn’t - people were giving us such a hard time. And I’ve had so much shit thrown at me and especially at Yoko.”

-John Lennon, Lennon Remembers, Jann S Wenner [x]

In 1972, John met one of his longtime idols Chuck Berry. While they were performing together, Yoko started screeching into a mic and freaked Chuck Berry and pretty much everybody else the fuck out. John was embarrassed in front of his idol, and the video became infamous. Look at Chuck’s face, that is the face of FEAR. [x]

They were also intense dieters. John’s troubles with food were no secret. His self esteem fell into a downward spiral after a reporter called him “the fat beatle” in 1965. While I don’t believe he had an eating disorder, he was very obviously underweight and struggling with his image. Yoko was nothing but encouraging of this endeavor, and even joined him on some of his diets.

“We had a picture of Orson Welles in the control room as “Don’t do this,” because he was enormous. So yeah, John was conscious of his image. And he always thought of himself as the fat Beatle.”

-Flipp Brynn [x]

“John and I were having a heart-to-heart, then all of a sudden John went off about how powerful men had ravenous appetites and wanted to swallow the world whole. And he thought that was why he had this horrible problem – being hungry all the time and overeating.“

- Harry Nilsson [x]

The Lost Weekend 1973-1975: even when Yoko wasn’t with John, she needed to be in control of who was. In ‘73 she suggested that John move to LA to build sexual relationships with other women. Little did he know that she had been setting him up with their receptionist May Pang all along. May had this to say about it;

Yoko said John would start seeing someone new and she wanted it to be “someone who would treat John well”. I now sensed a bombshell coming. I was thinking: “If they split, who will I be working for?”

Yoko continued: “You don’t have a boyfriend.” I dropped my pad and pen. Did I just hear right?

I assured her I wasn’t interested in John, if that’s what she was thinking, but Yoko didn’t stop there: “I think you should go out with him.”

I was dumbfounded and kept telling her no, but apparently her mind was made up.”

-May Pang [x]

’…. the relationship between May and John was essentially initiated, controlled and then terminated by Yoko Ono.‘ 

-May Pang, forward for Loving John

While the initiation of their relationship was forced, May Pang had a positive influence on John. She encouraged him to re-engage with old friends (including Paul McCartney), and even arranged the first visit he’d had with his son Julian in over four years. Being with Yoko seemed to have disconnected him from the world.

Notorious for the public perception as an orgy of drink and drugs, the Lost Weekend also found Lennon regaining his musical creativity after an early 1970s lull, reconciling with Paul McCartney and rebuilding his relationship with his son Julian, both of which were encouraged by Pang. In March 1974 she took the last known photograph of Lennon and McCartney together.

-Beatles Bible [x]

There were instances where Yoko would call and ask about everything John had done that day, but refused to talk to him when May would offer. Yoko had closed the door on their relationship, and turned it into a one-way mirror.

VG: With Yoko telephoning daily it must have felt like a third party in the relationship. What was it like for you and John?

MP: The problem was 99% of her calls weren’t “Hello, how are you?” First they were directives to keep our relationship quiet, which was fine with me. Then John ‘announced it to the world’ by kissing me for Time Magazine and crisis mode kicked in. She would call with instructions of what to say, that she had thrown John out. She’d call everyday to remind us of what to say. One drama after another.

VG: Did you and John ever discuss marriage or having children together?

MP: Only when Yoko threatened to divorce him, John told me, “Soon I’ll be a free man…” One thing I learned being with John was to live spur-of-the-moment. There was always some new, unplanned adventure, almost on a daily basis.

VG: Did yours feel like a permanent relationship, or was there always a feeling that John would eventually go back to Yoko?

MP: Sometimes it would feel permanent, but he could be jerked back into Yoko’s mind games very easily. Also, as our relationship began so strangely I suppose it would have had to end just as strange, this was at the point when he was making moves to make a complete break from her. We were about to buy a home in Montauk, John had cemented a closer relationship with Julian as well as with Paul and plans for us to visit him and Linda in New Orleans too.

-May Pang and Viv Goldberg, Beatles Bible [x]

Now I can’t say that the lost weekend is 100% Yoko’s fault, but she went to excessive lengths in order to control it. John cheated on her, and there’s been evidence of her cheating on him as well. This is what happens when you have a relationship founded upon infidelity.

In 1975, Paul convinced Yoko to take John back (funny how that works, or maybe Paul is just a good person), and they had Sean less than a year later.

But wait a minute! Yoko had a daughter too! This is a sad story and could be a factor of sympathy for many readers. What ever happened to her? Her name was Kyoko Chan Cox (raised under the name Ruth Holman) and she was born in 1963 of Yoko’s second marriage. Yoko and her husband Anthony Cox were having trouble with their relationship. They ultimately divorced in 1969. Yoko ended up losing the custody battle and was deemed an unfit mother due to her drug use and mental history. Unfortunately, Cox disappeared with then 8 year old Kyoto during the battle and sadly Yoko didn’t see her again until 1998. 

I feel like I need an entirely new post, or maybe even a book, for Julian. Yoko was very cruel to him. If Julian called their house, not only would she prevent him from talking to John, she would also pretend the phone call had never taken place. When John died, Julian was seventeen years old. There was a very sad article I read awhile ago which explained that when John passed away, Julian and Cynthia were anxious to get to New York to attend his funeral. Yoko initially prohibited either of them from coming, but eventually struck up a deal where Julian was allowed to visit but Cynthia had to stay behind in Wales. Cynthia recalled how worried she was in the airport while she was seeing him off. Her son’s father had just passed away, and she wasn’t able to stay with him to make sure he was okay. I can’t find the article at the moment, but if anyone knows about it please add a link.

Immediately after he passed away, Yoko auctioned many of John’s things to private buyers without offering any of them to Julian. He spent most of his inherited estate buying his father’s possessions back from these buyers, including a postcard he had written to his father when he was a young boy. [x]

Yoko had even withheld Julian’s trust fund for 16 years.

“In the original divorce settlement, Julian was to receive £2,400 a year in maintenance and to inherit a £50,000 trust fund when he was 25. After a long legal wrangle, he secured a further settlement from the estate in 1996, the details of which he is forbidden to discuss. “No,” he says, “I don’t think it was necessarily fair, but I’m OK. The last thing I wanted was a court battle because there’s much more money on the estate side than my side.”

He didn’t much care about the money, he says wearily; it was the principle of the thing. He’s not after a sympathy vote, but what he found really sad was the lack of any personal mementoes, “seeing nothing offered to me at all, having to go out and buy back Dad’s stuff with his money”.

He recently paid £30,373 for the Afghan coat John Lennon wore on the cover of the Magical Mystery Tour album in 1967; £17,246 for a black velvet cape (worn in the Beatles’ film, Help!), and £25,000 for the scribbled notes of the song Hey Jude, written by Paul McCartney for Julian when his parents were splitting up.

-Julian Lennon interview with Elizabeth Grice, 1998 [x]

I think I’ve linked this interview with Julian twice already, but it’s a really great video and you should definitely watch it. [x]

There’s a lot of stuff here, but there’s also a lot more. If I wanted to be short about it I could have just mentioned how Yoko had John calling her “Mother.” With what we know about John and his mother, that nickname made Yoko out to be an invaluable person in his life. 

just-french-me-up  asked:

Give me some baby Apolline goodness, I need my two fav nerds gushing over the 8th world wonder tonight :3 ♥

Yay Apolline!!

  • Well, let’s start with in addition to Grantaire singing “Giants in the Sky” as her bedtime story and Enjolras singing “Dear Apolline (Theodosia)” to lull her to sleep, singing show tunes at bedtime becomes tradition, because I’m a little obsessed with them seeing each other sing to their daughter.
  • Grantaire believes they should put Apolline in her crib at night, yet every morning when he wakes up she is snuggled up in between them in bed and Enjolras has only a slightly guilty look on his face.
  • You would think Grantaire would take on the messier aspects of child rearing, but actually Enjolras is the main diaper/nappy changer. He is very efficient and once had Combeferre time each of them to see who was faster.
  • Enjolras freaks out when she gets her first fever, while Grantaire calmly calls Joly and then they both spend the entire night taking care of her. This is when they realize they can actually do this. They were both so nervous about becoming parents.
  • Les Amis fight over who gets to babysit- Bahorel and Feuilly eventually end up losing this privilege when her first word is “fuck.”
  • Courfeyrac becomes very smug when Apolline automatically reaches out to him every time they are all together.
  • Who is the first to get her to smile though? Jehan
  • Grantaire loves to rub her little bald head and Bossuet’s at the same time.
  • When she actually starts to grow hair, Musichetta teaches them different hairstyles and soon Grantaire is french braiding both Apolline and Enjolras’ hair.
  • Cosette and Marius have a baby around the same time, so there is plenty of distressed and supportive parenting calls between all of them. 
  • Combeferre is named a godfather-equivalent and he takes this role very seriously. “She’s definitely going to have to come to me for dating advice when she’s older because…” *he gestures to Enjolras and Grantaire* and doesn’t even need to finish his sentence.
  • Eponine cries when she is asked to be the godmother-equivalent and sorry R, but you’ve been replaced as Eponine’s best buddy. They have the best girl talks (ok, one side talks and the other babbles, but they understand each other).
  • Enjolras thought there was enough paint everywhere just from Grantaire, but just wait until R starts painting with Apolline. They both end up covered in (child safe) paint, but when Enjolras ends up with paint on his cheeks in the shape of his husband’s sturdy handprint on one and his daughter’s tiny handprint on the other it melts away any anger.
  • Once she starts eating solid food, Pancake Sunday is the best day of the week.
  • Grantaire works from home and Enjolras discovers that his new favorite thing in the whole world is coming home to him and Apolline napping on the couch. He once watched them for a full hour.
  • Grantaire and Enjolras fight, once they decide they want a child but before she arrives, over having to change their behavior. “You can’t go to these dangerous rallies where you could end up not coming home. It was bad enough when it was just me, but you can’t leave behind our daughter too.” It becomes a moot point once Apolline arrives though, because getting Enjolras to leave her side becomes nearly impossible. He still fights for the people, but his family comes first.
  • Finally, they think they are happy with one child until one day Apolline looks at them with her big doe eyes and sweetly says, “I want a baby sister for my birthday.”
