if that is not love i don't know what is

Harry Styles’ Vocals on Graham Norton

You guys.  YOU GUYS.  HOW FUN WAS THAT PERFORMANCE TO WATCH.  Everyone’s  been saying how much more relaxed he was, how happy he was and yes there’s definitely that, but you know what I love more than anything in the world?  A performer who loves to perform.  Someone who just dives right inside the music and lives there.  Someone who gets out of their head and just enjoys the fuck out of what’s being played around them and coming out of their mouths and THAT, my friends, is what Harry did in this performance.  

I would much rather have something like this than something technically perfect with 0 emotion behind it.  

Were there some problems with his technique?  Sure.  absolutely.  Obviously the biggest concern is the ending…I do hear harmonic distortion again on the high notes (SO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GET THEE TO AN ENT BEFORE YOU START TOURING!!!).  He needs some work on his breathing.  it would make his falsetto SO MUCH easier to sing and stay on pitch (it’s a little sloppy and there are a few moments where he gets dangerously close to losing it.  Good breath support would clean this up SO easily).  although I’m still very in love with his vibrato on his falsetto.  It’s straight from the diaphragm.   It would also help support his belt in both the bridge and the end. 

Here’s the thing.  I’d much rather watch a performance like this than one that’s technically perfect.  This is also perfectly fine for a one off performance.  Am I still a little concerned? Sure.  If he keeps this up on tour he will undoubtedly have problems.  But it’s getting better and hopefully he’ll continue to take this seriously and improve.  

But please, again, I beg you.  Just get scoped by an ENT and get that looked at to be safe, son!

Hi! Same anon that asked about the FNaF 1 gang, withereds, shadows, etc., just wanna ask: Do you have any headcanons about the withereds, shadows, what the phantoms are, or anything? (P. S. Thanks for wishing me a happy day! Hope you have a "happiest day"!

Oh goodness I do happen to have…a few (uninteresting) headcanons actually…So I guess I’ll tackle these in the order you asked! These are all just for this blog’s AU, of course, so no worries if they collide with some of the canon or with other people’s universes

Withered Ones

  • Since W.Bonnie and W.Chica both have missing hands, W.Foxy and W.Freddy are always nearby to help them if they need it
  • W.Chica is really proud though and does her very best to do things herself
  • W.Bonnie is very sad about the loss of his face, and thinks about it constantly, often trying to find “replacements” for his face! Some of you guys might remember from one of my old posts that sometimes he wears a paper plate with a :3 face drawn on it
  • W.Freddy is a very Tired Man, choosing to mostly watch the Toys perform on stage as opposed to singing himself. I think of it like he’s peacefully retired
  • W.Foxy is the saltiest guy most anyone will ever meet, he wants to go places and have his Pirate Cove back but the world just keeps denying him

The Shadows

  • These guys are both mute, so they communicate non-verbally. Sometimes that means flashing shadowy words up in the air, other times it means sign language
  • Shadow Freddy (Shreddy lmao) looks like he’s constantly crying, but has never told anyone why…
  • Both of their bodies can be easily manipulated into different shapes, although Shadow Bonnie is a lot better at shapeshifting than Shreddy is!
  • Shadow Bonnie is………ridiculously tall, and Shreddy is a smol
  • Shadow Bonnie can teleport! But the process is rather painful so they don’t do it often
  • Both of them are very old, and have been around for decades as of the time of Fazbear Fright
  • In addition to not being able to speak verbally, neither of them make any noise at all when moving. They have accidentally snuck up on many of their friends because of it
  • Both are very elusive and will only appear to those that they deem trustworthy, or intriguing in some way

The Phantoms

  • They’re all essentially ghosts of the former Fazbear crew. Not every animatronic became a phantom after being destroyed, only a select few!
  • When they first woke up as phantoms, all they remembered was the pain of dying, so the reverted to a more primal state of personality. As of yet, only some of the phantoms have managed to remember their past selves to become who they used to be.
  • This is why Phantom Balloon Boy (PBB) screams so much! He’s trying to remember his past, but more often than not he resorts to the screaming
  • Being ghosts, they cannot touch anything corporeal without it meeting special standards
  • With enough practice, the phantoms can learn to summon ghostly objects from their past, one of the best examples being Phantom Chica’s ghost cupcake (which she’s very proud of btw)
  • It is said that once the Phantoms are able to complete whatever unfinished business they had on Earth, they will cease to exist here, having moved on. Most of them haven’t found out yet why they became ghosts, since they can’t even remember clearly when they were alive. Who knows if they’ll ever reach their goals?

Anyways that’s all I have for now! I know I’m leaving a bunch out, definitely, but hey, I’ve never been too great at communicating my thoughts! Thanks for asking about these guys!! Goodness knows I think about this AU every waking moment of my life And thank you! I’ll try and have the happiest day I can!

They had been waiting in the pilots lounge, chatting, teasing, the usual that they did these days.

At one point, Douglas pulls Martin toward a more secluded corner of the lounge, giving him a gentle kiss as he pulls Martin into his arms.

“Douglas,” Martin chuckles, giving Douglas a squeeze around his middle, “Someone could be watching.”

“Who, exactly? There’s one other pilot in here, and she dozed off long ago.” Martin just snorts, grinning up at his beau, Douglas loving the sight so much, he felt his heart skip a beat, provoking something that had been on his mind as of late,

“Would you like to get married one day?” 

To Douglas’ surprise; Martin doesn’t look shocked nor embarrassed. He just looks very slightly surprised, a thoughtful expression coming to his face.

“Well…Yes. I suppose I do,” He nods to himself, looking so sure of himself, “Yes. I really would.”

“And that person you would marry; would that person be me?” Douglas jokes, his eyebrow cocked, making Martin laugh.

“Of course you. Who else?”

“I don’t know. I’ve seen a person or two gazing upon you with a lascivious stare on our adventures.”

“Well, I must not have noticed, as I only have eyes for you,” Martin grins, making Douglas chuckle himself,

“So,” Martin continues, a light blush blooming on his cheeks, “Are you about to propose to me?”

“Hmm… Possibly one day. Maybe this is the pre-question? Will you marry me if I ask you to marry me?” 

They’re both grinning stupidly at one another, rocking lightly together.

“Yes… Yes I will say yes when you ask me to marry you.” The smile he gives to Douglas; oh, Douglas felt even more smitten than when they began dating.

He takes Martin’s hand, placing a loving kiss onto his palm,

“Terrific. I’ll have a bundle of orchids at the ready.”

They both laugh, hugging one another tight.

brutally honest ships: Rebelcaptain (i know what your gonna say but imma ask anyway)

AHAHAHAH. Bless you, anon. Bless you.

Well, to start, I did write this treatise on WHY I SHIP REBELCAPTAIN, but that’s more a technical breakdown than it is brutal honesty.

The brutal honest answer? I haven’t loved a ship like this one in a very long time. I almost never ship characters from a stand alone movie because the tension begins and ends within the span of those two hours. But Jyn and Cassian? They’re a different animal. I went in jokingly wanting to ship them based on the first trailer and general Diego Luna lusting, but on the first viewing, I was like oh ok, I guess I am probably not gonna end up shipping them, and that’s fine, that’s cool, that’s … what the hell is going on in that elevator scene. OH MY GOD BITCH DON’T YOU DARE OH GOD.

But here are some new hot takes I don’t think I’ve put down into words before:

My brain can’t comprehend that there’s another person in the universe that would make sense for the other. Other OTPs, other characters, I could be game with the “they could love someone else–maybe it would be the great love, but it could be love.” With Jyn and Cassian, I feel like they just wouldn’t be interested in anyone else. I think they both would rather be alone than be with someone else just to be with someone else. Cassian’s married to the cause when we met him. Jyn’s just trying to survive. Romance and love aren’t on the agenda. That is, until they meet each other, and like, something snaps into place.

I also believe that if they had survived, they’d be relatively okay mentally and emotionally, relatively speaking. Relatively, because these two have already been massively traumatized by their lives when they meet, and they’re still functioning. I think they are natural survivors and survivors who have learned how to cope. They’ve both learned to compartmentalize  Maybe they have nightmares, they probably have additional layers of PTSD and survivor’s guilt, but I don’t see them in my mind as withdrawing from each other, either? But then I’ve read fics where they’ve done just that, and I love those?

But one thing I do love about this ship is that I find that their dynamic is quite … healing for the other. It’s a pairing of equals, and though on the surface they are somewhat opposites (he’s careful and cool; she’s reckless and hotheaded), they’re also very similar in other ways, which is why I think they get one another, and why I think they work so well. In a span of a week they can communicate almost wordlessly. They trust one another. It’s beautiful and tragic.

Speaking of which. One upside to them being dead is that they can’t be ruined or torn apart. They exist forever in this perfect little bubble of what if and if only. I don’t know if I’ll ever get over it (and I don’t want to).

Whenever Dean can't sleep, he calls Cas, just to hear his voice. Most of the time Cas will sneak into his room to lay next to Dean. When this happens, Dean will be too tired to make sense so he'll just say what's on his mind and will talk about his day; Cas will answer with hums. And one night, after rambling on about which band is better, drifting into unconsciousness, Dean mumbles "y'know, if you'd've told me years ago I'd fall in love with an angel of the lord id've ganked you"

And Cas will turn on his side to face Dean and gently stroke his face, watching the creases smooth out as Dean finally falls asleep. He’ll press a feather-light kiss to Dean’s cheek, whisper “I love you too, Dean” in his ear, and slip some grace into him, making sure his dreams are happy and his sleep is restful.

The next morning, he’ll leave when he senses Dean is starting to wake up. They never discuss this during the day, so Cas doesn’t know if Dean would even want him there after he’s fallen asleep, no matter what things he may confess in the dark of the night.

He hopes one day Dean will ask him to stay.

my aesthetic is sixer endlessly tagging their love for stephanie patrick bc honestly same

Me: *takes a deep breath*

Me: i lo-

Y'all: yes, you love Stephanie, we know, you love Stephanie so much, she’s the light of your life, you love her so much, you just love Stephanie we KNOW, you love Stephanie you fucking love Stephanie okay we know, we get it, YOU LOVE STEPHANIE FUCKING PATRICK. WE GET IT.

Just a thought that came to me reading a few youtube comments. Thoughts about the end and if you wanna see the reunion sequence as real or not. And basically just thoughts about Silver and Flint.

Somebody was going on how they were disappointed in Silver betraying everyone like this, only because of his love for Madi. The men, the cause, Flint. They felt it was out of character to betray all of this after growing genuinely attached to the pirates, his men. But I would argue it’s not only about his love for Madi but also his love for Flint.

Because as the story goes on it’s not only Madi getting more important to him, he also grows closer and closer to Flint. So I think that in the end, however mad he is with Flint, however betrayed he feels or felt… he probably still loves him too much to just kill him (which he doesn’t if you go with that version). But he did end Captain Flint after all. And some people pointed out that it was probably hard for him to let Flint go. And some people also argue you could, if you’re so inclined, read it as Silver actually shooting Flint and telling Madi a lie. And silly as it may sound, I’m beginning to think it wouldn’t even make that much of a difference - in the way at least that in both scenarios he will have saved Madi from the war and ended Captain Flint/ freed James. Which both leaves him without Flint and with Madi maybe never truly forgiving him. 

Because for a long time I thought he was actually going to shoot Flint. And I felt as if Flint might have seen it coming and even welcomed it on some level.

To Anon🙂

If you would have come to me six or seven months ago with your ask, I would have answered but I’m a lot wiser now in terms of what I will say on my blog. So with that being said, to answer your question no. And my reasons are different than most but you need not know them because every person has their own experience with people. Just enjoy Tumblr and dive into the fics, the comics and all the love here. Avoid the drama. It’s not worth it🙏🏾😘
