i'm in this dress and coat

some people miss the point that rashomon isn’t actually aku’s coat, he can use rashomon regardless of the garment he wears (i believe he tends to overdress in order to boost his ability) like. this kid wears a black coat to look intimidating. or because blood doesn’t tend to show up on black fabric. but please imagine: a white rashomon coming out of his shirt dress.
but anyway my favorite thing regardless of the misconception about rashomon is this:



Someone was standing in the middle of the room: a tall, handsome person with pale, perfect skin and an immense amount of hair, as pale and shining as thistle-down. His cold, blue eyes glittered and he had long dark eye-brows, which terminated in an upward flourish. He was dressed exactly like any other gentlemen, except that his coat was of the brightest green imaginable –  the color of leaves in early summer.

I'm not sure if anyone noticed this but in The Blind Side of Love there's this one part between C and L that goes, "Camila was standing in the hallway, looking tired and disheveled, dressed in paint-stained jeans and her usual black coat. Her wavy brown hair fell loose around her shoulders, and she looked perfectly serious as she said, 'I have questions.'" Is this not a mind fuck?!?!

I'm not rubber, and either are you

dismantled magic, weighed
fairies with pink slips, dressed
music in lingerie
numbers pressed in cubicles
eternity crunched to bits

invoked, storms dismissed, don’t
be silly words, flit, blip
quietly, a radar

No wonder we can’t hear

words ooze, coat, forming us
teeth blood-blackened kills, who
we are, we were, never
rubber, depend on it


Okay, but the wardrobe in FFXII is just so fancy and colourful and even on the edge of silly, I just love that fashion, okay? I love it. I love the armour and the leather and the vests and coats and dresses and shirts and fucking sandals. I mean there is Dr. Cid with his overknee boots and frilly collar and then IN THE SAME GODDAMNED UNIVERSE we have Al-Cid with his nerdy sunglasses and Vossler’s ROYAL SOLDIER BEACH SHORTS and Basch with his chess board ornamental whateveritis breast plate and Gabranth’s and Rasler’s armour and Reddas'es PINK PANTS and Balthier with his rainbow rings and earrings and leather sandals like TELL ME THIS IS NOT THE COOLEST STUFF YOU HAVE EVER SEEN CRAMMED INTO ONE GAME AND INTO ONE GAME ALONE!!

anonymous asked:

Don't you think that Kaneki is starting to look a little bit like Arima (not that I'm complaining)?? In some panels he looked exactly like Arima. Even the coat he wears now looks a lot like Arima's one. Do you think that there is some certain reason or theory behind it??

Well, he got that coat when he first started mimicking Arima’s style, albeit with inverted colours.

This was effective to the extent that people started calling him the “Black Reaper” to mirror Arima’s title of “Reaper”. Why did he start dressing like Arima? He wanted to earn respect in the CCG so that he would be trusted with such an important task as guarding Cochlea, and styling himself as Arima’s successor was a quick way to do that, especially since he has been personally trained by him. Furthermore, Kaneki obviously admired Arima quite a lot so it’s not too surprising that he would imitate him, especially when he was trying to become as strong as him.

His hair turning white again in addition to the coat does make him look even more like his father figure, which is fitting since he is continuing his legacy like a loyal son. And his glasses are in the same style as Eto’s pair - not a direct influence like with Arima, but still a link to connect them by Ishida. Finally, his black getup and red gloves are borrowed from Furuta. So Kaneki as we see him today appears as an amalgamation of those three figures who shaped him into what he is now. 

Dream pt. 1

Hi! Love your stories! I have a newt request if you fancy it? The reader is marrying a man she doesn’t love (arranged marriage or she doesn’t remember newt because she was oblivated) but newt is in love with her and she with him. He asks her not to go through with it and kisses her, they end up sleeping together then Newt asks her to come away with him and travel instead and she agrees

I went with Obliviated because feels guys. Also, the Italics are flashbacks/dreams


“N-Newt, I don't want to forget” You cry out. 

You’re standing in the subway overhang. The rain continues to pour. Newt has tears in his eyes, all he wants is to take you far away and be with you forever but, he knows he can’t. 

“It’s quicker than falling asleep love” Newt reassures you, holding back his own tears. 

“I-I love you” you cry out. 

You hold onto Newts coat tighter, not wanting to let go. 

“You’ll be okay love, You’ll live your life, you don’t need me” Newt tells you, stroking your hair. 

You start to cry harder, Newt’s heart breaks even more, tears trying to escape. 

“Y/n, It’s time” Tina says reluctantly, her own voice breaking. 

You let go of Newts coat and walked into the rain, giving one last glance at the man you loved. 

You shot up gasping for breath. The same dream, the man in a blue coat and the lady. You almost had the names on the tip of your tongue. 

“Are you okay babe?” you turn your head and see your fiance lying half asleep next to you. \

“Yes I'm okay, just excited about the Wedding that’s all” you assure your them. 

You lied back down and pulled the blankets up and fell back asleep. You woke up to your fiance gone, Just a note sits next to you.

 Morning sweetheart, 

I have to work today, it was an emergency but I will see you tonight. 

Love, Jason

You got out of bed and got dressed. Your wedding was in a few days and you had to check on your cake. As you walk to the bakery you pass by Macys, a light blue coat catches your eye. It’s a beautiful blue color, it almost seemed comforting. You shrugged it off and kept walking, maybe you would buy it for the winter months. 

“Hello Jacob!” you called as you walked into the bakery. 

Jacob turned around and greeted you with a smile. You met Jacob when he opened his bakery a couple months ago and you two quickly became good friends. You begged him to make your wedding cake, which he happily agreed, and he was also invited to your wedding.  

“Hi Y/n, What can I do for ya?” Jacob asks. 

“Just came to check on the cake” you replied. Jacob chuckled, 

“This is the tenth time this week you’ve come to check y/n”. You blush a little, 

“Okay you caught me, It just smells so good in here” you admit. Jacob laughs and turns to his other worker, 

“Henry, im going to take a break, you think you can handle the bakery for a few minutes” The boy nods and Jacob takes off his apron. 

He grabs two cookies and sits down next to you. 

“Thank you” you say taking the cookie from his hand. 

The two of you engage in conversation for a little bit. “So where’s Jason?” Jacob questions. 

You sigh looking down, “Work, it was an emergency.” you say. Jacob gives you a sympathetic look. 

“It’s okay, he works a lot but he is very successful.” you say, trying to prove that things were fine.  

Jacob was about to pry when the bell rang on his door. He quickly stood up and a big smile appeared on his face. You turned to look at who Jacob was looking at, a beautiful blonde lady stood in front of him. 

“Hey Queenie!” Jacob says excitedly. 

“Hi Jacob!” she replies cheerfully. 

“There was something I wanted to ask you” Jacob says nervously, “Would you like to go to a wedding with me?” 

“Oh! I would Love too!” she exclaims, “When is it?” she asks. 

“In a couple days” Jacob answers. He looks at you, you give him a thumbs up. Jacob laughs and Queenie looks confused. 

“Oh Queenie, there’s someone I’d like you to meet. This is the wonderful person getting married” Queenie turns and looks at you. Her hand goes to her mouth, her eyes flash with different emotions. 

“Hello Miss, are you okay?” you ask in concern. She snaps out of it and puts on a smile, 

“Yes im fine, it’s just, I adore weddings. So many emotions” She says. 

Her tone is happy but something else is laced in with her voice. 

“So who’s the lucky man?” 

“My fiance, Jason. he’s at work but we are going to spend some time together before the wedding” You answer. 

“Well, I hope it goes well and I’ll definitely be there” She hugs you, her hug lingers a little but you don’t mind. 

“Um Queenie, I have a question. There’s this lovely blue coat I saw in the window of Macys department store. Do you think I should get it? I know we just met but you have amazing style” you say sheepishly. 

“Dont worry honey, I saw the coat you’re talking about and I think it would look amazing on you!” She replies. 

“Thank you” you say. 

“I’m going to leave you two alone now. Goodbye!” You call. 

You walk past Macys again, the coat is still there. You look longing at the coat, you had some extra money to spend. 

“It’s so beautiful” you murmur to yourself. 

You walk in the store and try on the coat. it fits perfectly and you couldn’t resist, you but the coat and rush home. Jason was already asleep, your heart dropped a little but you shook it off. I was late anyway. You curled up next to him and fell asleep. 

“What creature is this Newt?” you ask curiously. 

“These are my Bowtruckles” he answers. One climbs from the tree to your arm, you let out a small laugh. Newt smiles at you. 

“That is Finn” he tells you. 

You let Finn climb onto your shoulder. Newt watched you as you played with Finn. Squealing distracted you from the Bowtruckles, little snake dragon things were in a nest. Newt made his way over, 

“Mummys here” he comforted to his animals. You giggled as he continued calling himself mummy. 

“These are my Occamies. Very protective creatures, They are also Chroanaptyxic and Choranaptyxic. Which means they grow and shrink to fit available space” he explains. he looks over at you and see;s your eyes full of wonder. 

“Would you like to hold one?” he asks

. Your eyes widen, “I’d love to!” you exclaim. 

Newt carefully puts the Occamy in your hands. It slithers into a spiral, it looks at you with curiosity. You stare at it making cooing noises. The Occamy chirps happily at you and you hand him back to Newt. hile Newt put the Occamies away you looked up at the nest above the Occamies. 

“Who’s nest is that?” you ask pointing at the nest above the Occamies. 

“Oh no Dougals gone” Newt said worriedly. “Dougal?” You ask. “My demiguise. he looks like this” Newt shows you a picture of a white looking creature, “He must have escaped” Newt explains. 

“Don’t worry Newt. Jacob and I will help you find him” You told him. Newt smiles at you. 

“Newt!” Jacobs voice called from the direction of the giant aquarium. 

“Ill be right back” Newt said to you before running to Jacob. 

You watched him walk away and you couldn’t stop yourself from smiling. 

“Y/n?” A voice woke you up. Jason was shaking you awake. 

“I made you some breakfast. I have to run to the office but I’ll be home early tonight I promise” Jason kissed you on the cheek before dashing out the door. 

You sighed and looked down at the food. You picked at it, your dream taking over your thoughts. The man in the coat again but this time, jacob was there. The mans name was still in your mind. 

You think it started with an N? You had to ask Jacob. It was probably just a coincidence. you were with Jacob most of the day yesterday anyway. But was the harm in asking. You hopped out of bed and got dressed. 

Wearing your new coat you hurried over to the Bakery. You burst through the door. 

“Jacob I had the weirdest dream last night. You were in it and something that looked a lot like your cookies and this man in a blue coat.” You blurt out, not even bothering to look up, you walked past a couple people and stood right in front of Jacob. 

“The coat was just the same color as mine” you explain gesturing to your coat. 

“Do you know anyone who dresses like that?” Jacob looked at you, then behind you, then back at you again. 

“What was the mans name” Jacob asks slowly.

 “I can’t recall but I think it starts with an N” you answer. 

Jacob looks behind you again. Curious, you turn around and are met with three people. One was Queenie, the second was another lady you hadn’t met and the last person made you stare with your mouth open. 

A man stood in front of you, he had a leather case in his hands, a dark colored bow tie and a blue coat, the same color as yours. His face had freckles all over it and he mirrored your expression. His hair was floppy and a cinnamon color. He was looking at you with so many emotions. 

“Y/n?” The man finally croaked out. 

A wave of emotion overcame you. This was the man from your dreams, the one you couldn’t get out of your head every night. The man who you would think about. You looked directly into his eyes before you whispered something, the mans name finally came to your memory. 


and so, the new day comes. set aside your black coat. your umbrella. the night must pass.

dress yourself in yellow. look for the light. if it never comes, we heal in the dark.

a new beginning is nearly here; whether it lands as sun or cleaver, this remains:

morning has come. we must heal.

  • Lucy: Does something seem... off, Gray?
  • Gray: *scratches his chin* I don't think so. Been the best week I've had in a while, but I'm not gonna question it, 'cause the moment I do, that Pyro's gonna ruin it somehow...
  • Lucy: . . . That's it! *big 'O' face*
  • Gray: -_- What's 'it'?
  • Lucy: Well, Natsu hasn't gone on a mission with us in a week, right? Neither has Erza for that matter. Come to think of it, they haven't been around the Guild much, either.
  • Gray: ... You're right. I wonder what's up?
  • *Guildhall doors get kicked open*
  • Natsu: We're BAAACK! *walks into the Guild with a giant grin as well as a girl by his side*
  • Gray: There they are...
  • Lucy: *does a double-take* N-No. That's not Erza, Gray. Look again!
  • Gray: . . . Is that JUVIA?! O>O *Indeed, standing next to Natsu is Juvia Lockser, dressed in nothing but a red pair of pants with flame imprints, as well as only some bandages wrapped around her bountiful chest; really, it looked like the Water mage was just copying Erza now*
  • Natsu: Hnn? Wassup, Stripper?! Ya done anything stupid lately, 'cause I'm itchin' to punch you in the face!
  • Gray: -_-* Screw you, Pinky. What I wanna know is why Juvia's stealin' Erza's look! **She friggin' looks HOT now without that coat coverin' everything up!!**
  • Juvia: *sniffs haughtily, turning her nose up at Gray* Juvia pulls it off 200x better than Erza-san. Juvia can fill out any outfit better than any girl.
  • Lucy: *twitch* You've been awfully chummy with Natsu lately... Mind filling us in?
  • Juvia: Hnnn... Yes. *nods sagely as she 'inspects' Lucy's chest, before fondling her own big jugs* ... Tiny.
  • Lucy: -_-* And what's with the attitude?!
  • Natsu: I dunno... Juvia's been fired up lately, it's awesome! :D
  • Juvia: Juvia is happy to appeal to Natsu-sama's tastes! ^___^ How about we go get something to eat, Natsu-sama?
  • Natsu: I would, but we should probably wait for Erza... We kinda left her to carry the horn back by herself... And she'd be pissed if we left her to report the mission success by herself. **On that note...** *scurries off to the bar to place an order*
  • Juvia: *pout* Fiiine...
  • Gray: *twitch* Why the hell is Natsu getting the fangirl treatment now? Didn't you have a thing for me?
  • Juvia: Natsu-sama comforted Juvia when you wouldn't give Juvia the time of day. He is far more worthy of Juvia's affections.
  • Gray: ...
  • Lucy: ... Wait a second. Is that why Erza's been dragging Natsu out on missions alone? To keep him away from you?
  • Juvia: *grin* Oh, Erza-san tries, Juvia will give Erza-san that.
  • *rumbling that sets everyone on edge; then, the doors are slammed open once more*
  • Erza: JUVIAAA! NATSUUU! *glare that promises Punishment as she lugs in a bigass horn*
  • Natsu: H-Hey, Erza! Sorry for leavin' ya behind, but Juvia made me... ^^;
  • Erza: I figured as much... >.> But you are still to receive Punishment for ogling her while she's wearing MY look.
  • Natsu: ... Does it help that I got ya strawberry cake? *holding it out tentatively*
  • Erza: >.> Suck-up... Can't stay mad while you offer me that.......
  • Juvia: >.> Natsu-sama doesn't offer Juvia's favorite food as peace offering. Perhaps Juvia is just not trying hard enough?
  • Lucy and Gray: This is so surreal...
  • Instead of changing everyone's outfits worn to the Winter Palace... I'm just gonna list off what I expect their reactions were when they all learned they were wearing the same drab shit.
  • Blackwall: What, I can't just... wear my armor or something? I could even polish it.
  • Cassandra: ...oh. N-No dresses? *definitely not disappointed*
  • Cole: Clean-cut, clear, concise, crimson. Yes, I like them. But nobody else does. It's a good thing coats can't hear.
  • Dorian: No. What? What do you mean I can't come if I don't wear it? Why in the Maker's name can I not? Just look at it! It's atrocious!
  • Sera: If you think I'm keeping that on all night long, you've got another thing coming.
  • Solas: Oh. That's it? I see. I was expecting... something more.
  • The Iron Bull: Red? Why not pink? Or at least more of a brown. Blood dries brown. It never stays red for long, and it's always a sort of darker red than this to begin with...
  • Vivienne: Only so as to present a united front to the Court of Orlais. I know half of you would be eaten alive if we did not.
  • Varric: It's alright, I guess. I don't really have many positive associations with the color red, though. Maybe next time we could go for green instead.

So last night I dreamt of Babs & Lee…

It felt like they were having one of those therapy sessions the way they used to do back then in s1 except not really… This was some more some kind of a meeting in which Lee was supposed to have the upper hand over her, except she clearly didn’t.

Babs was wearing a fur coat with a black dress underneath, she was spreading her thighs with a smirk while Lee was sitting on the edge of the table, trying not to notice her black garter belt, clearly distressed but pretending she wasn’t, and most definitely failing at trying not to look.

anonymous asked:

Hey. If you could have only essential clothes for a minimalist wardrobe, what would your choices be? sorry for this question, I'm just trying to dress better.

Hi! Shall we aim for Parisian chic? I think the ideal goal is for a wardrobe that is wearable in all occasions (save fancy dress balls), in a neutral palate (no patterns), and suitable for all seasons.


  • slim silk bomber jacket
  • sweaters in shades of navy, moss green and camel
  • heavy wool coat for winter
  • (vegan / faux) leather jacket
  • faux fur coat or trench coat as a statement!


  • the lbd and her sister, the little white dress
  • long-sleeved black velvet dress
  • fitted t-shirts
  • long-sleeved shirts in black, stripped navy and white lace
  • flared a-line or layered skirts in various lengths
  • off shoulder “bardot” tops/dresses
  • button-up blouses in sheer, lace, and black
  • sheer tights in nude and black


  • ballet flats (think repetto lookalikes)
  • glossy chelsea boots
  • suede kneelength or ankle boots
  • the classic 3.5″ pump
  • nike tennis classic or adidas stan smiths
  • flat or block heel sandals (no wedges) 

As you can see, I feel that clothing material like lace, velvet and silk can replace often-clashing patterns for a more complex yet elegant look to wear than plain colours. Hope this helps!
