A few days ago I was going through photos of Gus and noticed that his watch was upside down. At first I thought it was a fluke, until I realized I couldn’t find a photo of him with his watch not face-down. I did some digging and found a bunch of sources that said some pilots wore their watches on the inside of their wrists, so they could read them more easily when flying.
From photos of the Mercury Seven, it seems like Gus is the only one who did that (or always did it; maybe the others did but wore them regularly when on the ground). Anyways I thought that was a cute and very Gus-like thing to do :’)
OK. So I have to share this news because I’m so excited. Yesterday, I showed my film to my class and they all really loved it (including my professor). Then my professor tells me that if I make a couple of little tweaks to it that he wants me to enter it into this film festival that is happening next week. GUYS HE ACTUALLY TOLD ME IT WAS GOOD ENOUGH TO GET ACCEPTED AND HES A JUDGE SO HE WOULD KNOW. And the best part is that if it does get accepted then it will be shown in a movie theater and people from Hollywood will be there watching the films.
So I’m actually freaking out. Please cross your fingers for me. This would be a dream come true!
You know I'm with you I don't mind much whether they end up having sex or not because although the kisses and touches and all of that are nice (VERY nice) my favourite aspect of their relationship so far is the communication I love seeing them talk about stuff and working through whatever might arise and that's what I'm most excited to see next week
Literally me. Them talking in 2x05 was one of my most fave Malec scenes ever. Those honest conversations, this healthy relationship, them acting like adults, this is everything.
I mean I am not kidding, I will lose my chill once they might have sex (or even have some heavy making out) ngl but what I am really looking forward is them being soft and cuddly but also like total badasses on the battle field? Give me Malec being all competitive little shits while fighting demons. But also being so comfortable around each other, melting around each other when they’re staring into each other’s eyes with such admiration and awe and so full of love. Lying on the couch, languid kisses, fingers that brush lazy over arms. Also them holding hands, or like little touches that might seem like they just happened accidently when they are not. Also forehead kisses (Istg if I get a forehead kiss I might just die!) and hugs. I don’t need any “sex scene” at all when I get a hug.
Please, give me hugs.
Also, I’m really excited to see him do Graham Norton next week because now that he has the nerves out of the way from the first performance and being back on stage for the first time in a long time, I think he’ll be even more confident.
decisions for my dream school come out tomorrow. and i mean i know i’ll be fine if i don’t get in, but i still really, really want it :/
either way, i’m visiting colleges next week and i’m super excited! my second choice school (which i’ve already gotten into) is super beautiful and i know i’ll still be happy there
i started/finished reading ‘this adventure ends’ yesterday, which i surprisingly liked! it’s a lot like igyts. or maybe i just feel that way since those are the only two realistic fiction books i’ve read in a long time oops
on that note, i’ve been wanting to read more recently, so rec me any good mystery/romance/realistic books?
Hello my lovely people, I hope you’re all doing well. 💜
I just wanted to put out a quick thing to let you all know that these next two weeks are going to be busier for me, so I won’t be around as much. Consequently I’m not sure how available for chats/im I will be. But don’t let that stop you from sending me a message! I will still get back to it as soon as possible, it just might not be right away. I am always happy to hear from people!!
I’ll probably be stopping in only for 5-15 minute intervals on the earlier end, and only here for longer at night. So that’s probably what it’ll look it for me….Which sucks because I know a few of the people I’ve been chatting with are in much later time zones. 😭
Anyway, I hope you all have an absolutely lovely day. 💜(I made this post last night and then scheduled it, but I bet the new Haikyuu!! chapter is going to be great as always!!!) Take care and make sure you stop and do something that makes you happy today. 💜💜💜
I might be stuck at work for like the next week straight, which means very little writing, but I managed to get a good chunk in tonight and even if it sucks - I just love these characters so much and the way they interact. I got to write some good Cass/Az/Rhys post-Starfall and a tiny snippet of Rhys/Mor pre-54/55 that I really enjoyed. My heart is warm and happy now so I can to go sleep. :)
I’m sick for the second time in a couple weeks after being healthy for the whole school year until this point which is Awful, but one of my friends a) brought me soup and b) offered to call the grim reaper to put me out of my misery, which is everything you could possibly want in a friend, honestly.
So I really want a studio ghibli inspired tattoo. I’m thinking either a totoro or something from Kiki’s delivery service. but it’s just a thought for now. I have something else planned for my next one.
also shout out to Emilee (I don’t even know your tumblr habits at this point but hi if you see this) who is coming with me to get a tattoo next week and is also attempting to get me to attend an actual Concert because i’ve only ever attended 7 AND is accompanying me on our 4 day Barratt Bonanza
I will have Living With You’s next chapter on Tuesday or Wednesday of this week. I also want to write a one-shot and do some requests. I’m really excited about writing some more now that I have some time off from work on the weekend on Tuesday/Thursday.
I also would like to announce something: I will be doing a follower giveaway once I reach 2,000 followers. It will include a small basket filled with Lush bath bombs, sharpies, a notebook, and a few of my favorite things. I will be making an actual post when I hit 2,000 followers.
Also also, once I hit 150 reviews on Living With You, I’ll do another random update like I did last time.
Thank you so much for staying by my side throughout this whole thing. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
Big news, everyone! I’m not sure how many of you remember, but I used to do a thing on this blog where I published user-submitted work every Saturday. Now, I’m very excited to say that I’m bringing it back! You can submitart, fan fiction, in-character voice overs, or any other creative stuff based off of the content from this blog that you want!
Even though Submission Saturday has been on break for a while, I still see people saying they’re inspired to write or draw something based off of the texts from this blog all the time. I want to start embracing and encouraging that again. You submit what you make, and I’ll publish it for the world to see!
So, what’s different this time around? I know this will disappoint some of you, but I am no longer going to publish user-submitted texts. Here’s why:
I received text submissions at such a volume that I was publishing more of them per Saturday than what I was comfortable with.
I found it very difficult to moderate text submissions on an individual basis. I didn’t feel good about publishing content on this blog that I didn’t personally think was funny, but I could rarely bring myself to reject anyone just because their humor didn’t agree with mine or discourage someone who was trying their best. It was hard to strike a balance there. It was also difficult to know where to draw the line in terms of errors and the overall quality of what was submitted.
This resulted in a lot of time spent and emotional labor done on my part, trying to decide whether or not preserving one person’s feelings was worth hurting my own personal satisfaction with the quality of this blog’s output. It got hard for me to do every week. It’s one of the reasons Submission Saturday stopped happening for so long.
I really appreciate everyone who submitted texts in the past, and I hope you can all understand why I’ve made this choice for the future.
That being said, if you’re interested, please check out the updated Submission Guidelines and submit away! Since it’s already Wednesday, I might wait to start publishing submissions until next Saturday. If you have questions about anything in this post, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thanks, everyone!
I (probably) won't be active for the next 2 1/2 weeks
I’m going on vacation on Friday (10 days in Japan with my dad) and right after that I’m going to Magic/Con! I’m not sure when/if I’ll have wifi during that time and if I’ll be on tumblr should I have wifi. I’ll definitely be back online April 24 :)
So, I have a queue (as always) that should be long enough.
