“My estimation of Tom as a writer has been very high just because it plays so well. […] I’m also amazed at how he’s kept himself looking through the shoot. I mean, directors usually fall apart physically, and to have someone that’s actually better put together and more glamorous behind the camera than most of the people in front of it is quite extraordinary.” - Colin Firth

“Tom’s been an excellent director and he did such a great job on the script. […] Every day Tom has been spotless. I thought it might drop one day, but I haven’t seen him not in a perfectly crisp white shirt, cuff links, waistcoat.” - Nicholas Hoult

EMERGENCY COMMISSION BETWEEN JOBS

So…it came to this. Which makes me incredibly sad but I’m gonna have to quit my job, I’m miserable at my work, coming home every night exhausted and berated my co-worker keeping myself busy with menial tasks that are driving me insane. I’ve come home crying for several days, I’m depressed, frustrated, unhappy, exhausted, sick and I can’t do it anymore.

With that being said I’ll be able to open up commissions full time between my part time job and job hunting to help pay my bills and keep a roof over my head and because they’re full time and emergency they’re a lot cheaper so I can do a lot more.

                                                    -3-

The ideal is to be able to make at least 80$ a day which is how much I was being paid at my current job but more is always good and i’ll still take whatever I can get.

I’ll have 10 slots open at all times from now on too!!

*comes tumbling out of an overhead cupboard* SOMEONE SAID IT WAS ROKUSHI DAY? Have some Xion marking her territory at Chocobo Coffee.

I’m in a rut with the “¾ back view of Person A grabbing Person B’s face” kiss, but I only ever remember that by the time I’m 80% done with the drawing. oTL

“I’m honestly not sure what to say. This morning I was on my way to Westbooks to propose a low-key signing event for Rupture’s·October issue, only to get a call from my scheduler, telling me that she wasn’t going to be able to send me the numbers in time. I swear, some days I wonder why I quit my day job for this. Does anyone know a reliable analyst? Hell, how about a more creative designer? Any columnists?”

There are days where Sherlock just can’t be bothered to open his eyes in the morning. There are no cases and John is not there with him and the world is dull, so dull it grates on his mind and he just wants to stay here, head buried in his pillow, groaning in misery. 

Luckily, John - who has quit the job at the clinic - is never too far from him and armed with the homemade scones from Mrs Hudson, he staggers back into the bedroom, still half asleep himself. 

And when John crawls back into bed with him, cradling him in his arms and pressing his unshaven cheek against his neck, Sherlock has to admit it; the world is not as dull as it once was.

What we should be doing is getting a drink.

I made this last week. Idea was to draw a mix of tv show and the new comics Jim and John. Mainly cos they have killer hairstyles in the comics :’)
Not quite sure how good of a job I did in trying to make them look like Emmett and Matt tho…

Otherwise I’m kinda happy with this. Maybe I’ll try again some other day~

@DC please make trash crossover of these thanks

Today is our last full day with Gracie girl — and her mother — before the trip up to Maine. Then it’s off to my very last show on Hamlet tonight, which is quite upsetting, given how great the cast is and how amazing of a job James has done with the entire production. This calls for an exciting week, having heard my baby’s heartbeat and then preparing for Lost and Found to start filming once we all return. I hope everyone is having a great start to the weekend, what are the plans before we poof out of town?

Hi all,

I hate doing this - writers don’t usually get commissioned to write (especially fic writers, who are expected to write for free) but I am having some financial troubles and even ten bucks would feed me for a couple of days. I recently (October) quit a job that was so emotionally taxing that I started having self-destructive thoughts and behaviors (I cried literally every day, stopped eating and went from 115 lbs to 105, I had very real thoughts of how I could die, etc) and started a new job as a full-time retail manager that is surprisingly not very stressful. I don’t mind my job, but it pays a whoooole lot less than the one I quit, so bills that used to be relatively easy for me to pay off have now become a source of concern, and coupled with a restrictive and incredibly irritating gluten-free diet, the price of food is a bit overwhelming. Not to mention I had a very unexpected rent hike that I found out about yesterday, which is going to be painful to pay until I get a second job. 

I am interviewing with some other places for a second, part time job right now but in the interim, I would be incredibly grateful for any help at all (for the cost of a cup of coffee, you could have me write that coffeeshop au that meet your exact specifications!… or something). You can check out my ao3 for examples of my writing style or content.

Prices are listed above (all prices in USD). I’ll write most anything I’m familiar with, with few exceptions, but I feel most comfortable writing for the following: 

  • Yu-Gi-Oh (any, but primarily Zexal and Arc V)
  • Pokemon Ranger
  • Pokemon Special/Adventures
  • Pokeani (up to Best Wishes)
  • Pokemon games (all)
  • Kingdom Hearts
  • Gravity Falls (genfic only please)
  • OCs (please include OC information so I can do them justice!)
  • AUs, canon expansion, pre/post-canon, character studies, and some not safe for workish stuff

If you would like to donate but not for a fic (i.e., for less than $5), my button is on the top of my page, or you can follow this link; I would be more than happy to write a little drabble as thanks (just send me a message, anon or off, of what you’d like!). 

All questions can come straight to my tumblr ask box, and I can share my gmail account if you are interested in commissioning me. 

Any and all signal boosts would be appreciated tremendously, as exposure is my biggest concern.

Thanks in advance!

You know…I’ve always heard how women get paid less than men for doing the same exact job, but I’ve never had to go through that experience until today.

I was an office assistant for an engineering company during the entire summer. I worked either 4 or 5 days every week and did whatever they needed me to do.

Going into the semester they told me that if I found someone to replace me, I would have more intern responsibilities and that I would be doing more engineering work.

Within a week I found a replacement and he gets hired. When I was training him today, we got to talking about whether or not I like the company. I told him I like that I get paid $12 an hour because it’s more than minimum wage and plus the company is great. He kinda made a weird face like he knew something. I asked him what was up and he responded with oh that’s not what our boss offered me. I said better or worse than I’m getting paid? He told me he’s getting $15 an hour.

The guy that I found to replace me had no prior experience in engineering and is a student just like me. The only thing different was that he had other work experience prior to working at our company but does not relate to engineering.

The new assistant is a white male, and good looking and I’m confident that that’s the only reason he’s getting paid more than I am. Strictly because he’s a male. He isn’t even working full time like I was during the summer.

This right here is why I need feminism. There should not be a wage gap. I deserve to get paid the same as him or even more now because I am a step above him.

I just cannot tell you how grateful I am of your cursed child staging descriptions. They are beautiful, elaborate, and witty. My daily commutes are quite long, so when I travel I make it a point to go to your page and check if you've posted anything new. I've got a few questions of my own regarding the staging of the play although I don't have them listed, but for now if you would like to discuss...I am quite curious about the chemistry between Harry/Albus : Jamie/Sam in the play. (much love <3)

Thank you so much, that’s such a kind thing to say! <3

Well, the word chemistry seems a bit off here, given that for most of the play, it seems like these two are speaking an entirely different language. They seem to be doing okay-ish in the very first scene at King’s Cross, but once Albus leaves for Hogwarts it quickly goes downhill from there.

Albus is visibly uncomfortable in his scenes with Harry, and grows more and more uneasy as time goes by, to the point that the big argument scene seems inevitable. It’s not even for lack of trying, Harry does seem to try but he entirely fails to connect with Albus on any level and it’s quite difficult to watch.

Albus doesn’t enjoy confrontation - even if he does does provoke Harry to get a reaction from him, the instant Harry raises his voice Albus seems almost fragile and not at all this bratty, brash, and confrontational kid that he is sometimes portrayed as in the fandom. On the contrary, Albus gets visibly uncomfortable when faced with aggression and unlike his dad, he would absolutely avoid lashing out physically if possible. This doesn’t go well with Harry’s tendency to raise his voice and yell at people who he loves and it’s heartbreaking to see that Harry doesn’t seem to recognise at all that Albus can’t take being yelled at the same way that some of the other characters can.

Albus has the exact same reaction when Scorpius faces him at the library: he delivers the lines “I just wish you weren’t my dad” to Harry and “without you holding me back I can make a proper go at it” to Scorpius with the same purpose, trying to get a reaction out of the other, but once the other person replies, the anger seems to disappear and he just seems small, resigned, and heartbroken.

(on the same note, as far as confrontations go Albus’ “poor orphan who went on to save us all” and Scorpius’ “poor Albus Potter with a chip on his shoulder, poor Albus Potter, so sad” sound remarkably similar, not just because of the choice of words but also the way they frame the other person’s problems as less important as their own)

I don’t have kids so I’m not probably the best person to comment this, but while I do understand Harry’s frustration as well as the unfortunate argument that they have, I’m still not quite sure why he has such fundamental difficulties connecting with Albus on any level. Many of the issues Albus faces at Hogwarts are exactly the same as Harry faced during his time there - being an outcast, having unfair expectations placed on you, feeling unwelcome in a place that should be your home, living up to one’s parent’s name.. Harry is such a compassionate character that this complete lack of understanding is somewhat devastating. This is the part I struggle most with this play re: Harry’s characterisation - while it’s clear that his later (questionable but still) parenting decisions stem from fear for his family’s safety, the play doesn’t really tell us why Harry struggles so hard with empathising with Albus even before the time travel shenanigans start.

Both of them still seem to struggle at the final scene, but they seem to have found some kind of a common ground or a starting point: it’s quite cathartic to see that they are both working towards getting to know each other, Albus trying to understand where his dad comes from, and Harry learning to how to show his love and appreciation to Albus. The pigeon-racing discussion is heartwarming and probably the first time we truly see Albus connecting with Harry, at least since the first scene when they discuss getting sorted to Slytherin.

Wake up, mun! You haven't been active for FOUR days, and we are so close to the 100th headcanon! :c

Dude I’m back in school now so sometimes the queue is going to run out and there’s going to be a bit of a larger gap between posts because I don’t have a ton of time to fill it. I’m working 2 jobs, taking 3 classes, and doing a directed study for my senior thesis so I’m going to be quite busy this semester. But don’t worry I’m definitely aware of how close we are to 1000! Part of me really wants to be the one to write the 1000th headcanon, since this blog started with me writing my own and not just posting submissions. So I kind of want to claim #1000 and that’s another reason it might take a little longer because if I do do that then I need to think of a good idea first.

anticipation of the thing is worse than the thing itself
