The pounding in your head was unbearable, but it was nothing in comparison to the burning sensation embedded deep inside your nostrils. Your aching body was heavy, almost too heavy to move; it took all your strength to eventually sit up on the bed, your eyes immediately scanning your surroundings in confusion, what had happened? By the looks of things you were in a cheap motel, the garish yellow patterned walls adding more fuel to the fire beneath your temples.

Glancing down you recognised Taehyung’s still body, his face weighed down heavy with sleep as his light snores echoed throughout the sparsely furnished room. Everything was a blur, one moment you were talking to Taehyung in your bedroom and the next, everything was black. Rubbing your eyes to try and adapt to the sunshine beaming through the windows your gaze eventually settled upon a brown glass bottle next to a white rag on the bedside table. Chloroform. The smell became overpowering as memories of a large palm pressing a damp rag over your open mouth played in your mind, that bastard.

“Good morning sunshine.” Sung chuckled before tossing you a box of painkillers, her face emotionless and unreadable, “Sleep well?”

“What’s going on?” You croaked, too proud to swallow one of the painkillers she had offered, instead choosing to hurl them towards her physique with force, “Where’s Jimin?” You barked, just where had Taehyung taken you? However if Sung was around surely your brother would be close by.

At least you hoped.

Yes, but what if? (Yoonmin masterpost/prompt)

Okay so a few months ago I read this fanfiction. In a few words IT WAS THE BEST YOONMIN FANFICTION I’VE READ IN THE ENTIRETY OF MY LIFE. It’s based on real events and the only thing I can say is that ever since I read it my brain is convinced that this actually happened between Yoonmin. If you haven’t read it I insist you do.

This fanfic describes how Yoonmin were in love since they met but hadn’t realized it until the period Yoongi had written/recorded First Love. The writer (Hello, by the way, if you are reading this! I hope you don’t mind me promoting your awesome work. I asked for permission in your comments, but if you have a problem just tell me and I’ll take it down.) bless them, talks about how the rest of Bangtan found out Yoongi and Jimin were in love before the two of them did. If I continue I probably won’t stop. So please read it! Especially if you are a Yoonmin stan.

So as I said, my fantasy world is set in a reality where this actually happened. And in this reality, (also in the fanfic, according to the time it’s placed in) Yoongi and Jimin got together on the day Yoongi recorded First Love. So that means that in this picture

they have just begun dating. *Reminder: This is all happening in my brain. I have formed my own reality. Nothing is true* Okay so, because  my brain needed more of this story, I began putting real events into this fantasy world in a way that would seem like the two are actually together. Do you get me? Like, I’d watch/read whatever happened on twitter or in Bangtan Bombs, having in mind that the two of them were actually together. I’m weird I know. I hope I’m not the only one who does this, or else it’d be really awkward. Here are some of these moments.

*Credits to the owners*

I’d watch these and think that when they were filming this, they were actually together. It made my heart flutter every time. Again I hope other shippers do that too.

So, because I needed to convince my self that this fantasy world really existed, I began making audios, writing fics, drawing fanart based on this world. I wanted to make something like Behind The Scenes moments that didn’t actually exist. I hope anyone out there can relate. Yoonmin has taken over my life and it’s the only thing that occupies my mind ever since I read that fanfic.

During this period I’ve come up with the following. It’s more of a prompt for a fanfic. It’s extremely stupid but I can’t help my self.

*ALL THE FOLLOWING ARE FIGMENTS OF MY IMAGINATION! NOTHING REALLY HAPPENED!!*

So Yoonmin supposedly got together some time in August. Suga’s mixtape was released around that time (correct me if I’m wrong), but the songs were written long before. Here’s a fanfic that fits this story line. Then their WINGS comeback was in October. During that time Yoongi and Jimin were still exploring this new territory.

Their first time was some time in early November.  

And the talk was in early December. I’m shit at writing fanfics but I’ll try my best to explain what was said during the talk. It went a little like this:

Yoongi and Jimin were lying on the couch in their dorm living room at night chatting about different things (because in reality that’s what Yoonmin loves to do with each other)

when Yoongi said.(for a second time that night)

“I can’t imagine my life without you” or “I wouldn’t mind spending the rest of my life with you.”

Jimin sat in silence for a while, scrunching up his nose (in that cute way he does) in confusion.

“Hyung, are you proposing?” he asked looking up at Yoongi. Yoongi was confused by the question but then said something like:

“I know we can’t get married in Korea, but if we could would, you marry me?” or like “I know it’s impossible because no1 we are idols no2 no one knows about us(*supposedly they hadn’t ‘come out’ to the rest of BTS, despite the fact that BTS knew they’d end up together before them*) and no3 we live in a country where marriage between men is not allowed, but lets say non of these were in the way. Would you want to spend the rest of your life with me?”

And then Jimin kissed him softly and ran his fingers through Yoongi’s black hair.

“Of course I’d marry you, Yoongi. I love you way too much. And even if we can’t get married, I’d still want to spend the rest of my life with you, no matter what.” And they kissed again.

They exchanged gentle kisses for a couple of minutes until Jimin pulled back and said.

“Yoongi? I think we can.”

“What?” Yoongi asked, a little light-headed from Jimin’s kisses.

“I think we can get married. I have an idea.” Jimin said.

So Jimin explained his idea, that being them going to the United States for their Wings Tour and getting married there. They’d do it in private, just the two of them and a witness *they later decided on RM, because no1 he was the leader and deserved to know, no2 he wouldn’t judge them(none of the boys would but those were Jimin’s insecurities talking) and no3 he could speak english so they would be able to communicate with the people there*. They’d do it on their second day in New Ark, NJ, in the morning before they started getting ready for the concert. When I tell you I did research for this I’m not kidding. I literally looked up ‘how can gay couples get married in Newark?’. I don’t even know what I’m doing with my life anymore.

“No one has to know. We won’t cause a scandal, because no one will find out. We’ll tell management that we went out to get coffee or whatever. We’ll just go and sign the papers. And in the future, if marriage gets legal back at home and we can be who we really are without fear, we can actually have a ceremony there.” Jimin said.

Anyways, during the next week they did their own research, filling out marriage license applications, talking with Namjoon (RM told them that they all knew and would all be present that day). Everything was settled before they left for the tour. They had even booked the appointment with the center.

Then I got inspiration and created this, which happened during their stop in NY before heading to Chile. During the rest of the tour they were pretty much occupied with rehearsals and sleep. They got the same room in hotels and, even though they were really tired every night, they always kissed each other good night and whispered a ‘saranghe’ before falling asleep in each other’s arms.

So as I said, this is all in my brain. I know it’s fake and I know that ‘of course Yoongi and Jimin aren’t getting married in real life and you are stupid for thinking it can actually happen.’ That’s what I told my self a week ago and I had almost forgotten about it, when Day 2 of the Newark concert came around and I saw this:

The photo was taken after their concert on their second day in Newark.

Then I noticed the ring on Jimin’s finger.

Jimin’s been wearing this ring for quite a while now, but the fact that it was on his fourth finger and the fact that Yoongi

had the same one on his fourth finger got me going crazy. Of course it’s a coincidence but I can’t help but think of this other reality. I’m mean, yes nothing’s real, but what if?

Anyways I wanted to share this, because

1. I wanted to know if anyone else in this world had the same thoughts (please tell me, I want to know)

2. I am Yoonmin trash and just can’t help it.

3. I hope someone writes a fanfic about this.  I’d do it but I can’t write. And if you do let me know!

4. I don’t know what I’m doing with my life anymore…

Anyways thanks for reading! I hope I didn’t tire you. But then again if I did you wouldn’t be reading this now. ;)

Have a wonderful rest of the day!! And enjoy this married couple.

Something that I feel is under-explored is the fact that Jack is a queer history major. And he went to a very LGBTQ friendly college.

Basically imagine Jack being forever annoyed when people assume that historical figures were straight.

So, with the wonderful help of my dear irl bff @ohsobittle, let me tell you a story. (seriously follow her she’s The Best and we are essentially a matched set)

  • it really all just starts when they Jack is a little tipsy and hanging out with The Boys and Bitty (of course). Bitty is the DD for the night.
  • “Y’know, John Laurens was really cute.” “Who?” “John Laurens. Alexander Hamilton’s boyfriend.” “….what?”
  • (Bitty is on Jack duty. tipsy Jack will probably wander off and go try to teach a class if left unsupervised.)
  • “No seriously John Laurens was really cute. And so was Alexander. You know his eyes were actually /violet/? Like. Bittle. You don’t understand. Pull up a picture.”
  • (Shitty points out that Jack isn’t usually into gingers and Jack throws a pillow at him)
  • “no but he was described as having a peaches and cream complexion like what the fuck”
  • and then of course Holster is like “I didn’t know they were in love” and Jack is like “oh my god their letters, man, their LETTERS”
  • *cue theme music and History Shit With Jack Zimmermann* (credit to ohsobittle for that one)

anonymous asked:

as a person who creates content myself, I do not understand why you're so pressed about your work being posted. If someone reposts mine and just goes credit: then whatever I'm chill with it why are you making such a big deal out of it, nothing you share on the internet is private and of course people will share it around, you need to chill the fuck out

So here I am, trying to get away from all the negativity in this site and on the internet because I have spent months trying to convince myself to not delete this blog and have been getting more reasons to delete for the last few days. And then I came into my blog to find solitude on the one hour I had before my exam and comes this message. To be honest, I wanted to just delete this message and block your ass from my blog, but since you have rudely told me to “chill the fuck out”, so I closed my app instead, walked into campus with a wide fake smile over my face and hoped that I could “chill” within the next hours of the exams so I can respond to you properly.

Now, since you told me yourself that you are a content creator, I need you to imagine this. Imagine yourself creating whatever content you make. I don’t know how long you need to make them, but let me just generalize it by how long me and my fellow writers needed to write. Let’s say you spent almost a full week creating your content - planning, choosing the images and concept of your content, working on them to be exactly how you wanted them to appear, then finalize it with editing. You lose hours of sleep, losing concentration on your class/work, and even think about the content while you’re out with friends - and then you feel the anxiety about posting them on the internet. You spend minutes, hours, contemplating in front of your screen, thinking - “will people like it? Is it good enough? will I have notes?” And then you take a deep breath and click that “post” button, and off the children of your creation went to the surface of the internet and beyond reach of your followers. And then the whole day and the next you find people looking at our content, giving likes and reblog, adding notes, commenting, giving feedbacks and spreading them around more with reblogs. Imagine how you feel. Doesn’t it feel exhilarating? Do you feel good about yourself and proud to see how people react to your creation? Of course you do.

Now come the reposters. Imagine they come to your blog, copy your creation and repost them on their blog/site/page. They don’t ask permission, they don’t ask if it’s okay to repost them with or without credit, and they don’t credit you properly (no links, just names, not even your full url), or even worse, they repost without taking your captions either. Imagine people coming to their blog, finding the content, and then praising them, giving them likes, reblogging the contents on their blog, adding their notes. Do you feel the spread? Do you get the notes? Do you receive the messages of the viewer asking you if you can share more quality contents as the ones they found? No. They will talk to the reposters. They will add the reposters’ notes. Do they come into your blog to give you a praise? No. Because I know that there are people who are too lazy to find source when it is not added, and because credits without linking back does not bring viewers back into your blog as the source. Do you feel good about this? Do you really feel proud having somebody else receiving feedbacks and praises (and probably more followers) of your hard work instead of yourself?

This is what happens to us. That is what we feel. This is what we are up against. Yes, I am well aware that this is the internet. People have easy access on every content being shared throughout the internet, and the only thing that I am asking (along with everyone else) is to be respected. Why is it so hard to respect our preferences of not having our work being distributed without our knowledge? Why is it so hard to respect our wish to protect our work? Aside from this blog, I also create things for a living. I have my work taken, stolen, being rebranded by plagiarists in real life. It sucks. It hurts. But the most painful thing I have to endure is losing money. Now we spread our work and our contents here for free, and the only thing I gain from sharing my contents are people’s feedbacks, the notes, the likes, the reactions and the respects. Nothing more. Now if I lose all of that, what else do I have left? Why is it so hard to have people ask for permission first? Have you not seen content makers asking people to “not repost”, to “not cut the credits on pictures” and to “not delete caption”? Have you not seen gif makers adding their credit on their gifs instead of captions because people repost them without their knowledge? Do you think people would do this if they are okay having their content reposted?

Look, if you are okay having your credits taken away from you and your content, then it’s fine with me. If you’re okay about people reposting without permission and proper credit, then I have no say on it. If you are okay with plagiarism, then please do not attempt to impose your personal preference to us when we are all here trying to protect our work the only way we can. And if you don’t agree with me, then it’s fine with me. Just don’t tell me how to feel or think, because you have no idea what it’s like to be me.

Miscellaneous Batman headcanons as relate to my little fic universe, that may or may not ever come up because who knows:

  • In general when it comes to Billionaire Playboy Bruce Wayne people go in one of two directions. Either he is the mysterious eccentric always galavanting around and seeing him at a party is like a Bigfoot sighting, or he is obnoxious and spoiled but people let him get away with it because he has money. But then it’s always a plot point that he is surrounded by vapid gold diggers?? I call bullshit, maybe Bruce Wayne is actually a really nice guy and he’s charming and charismatic and people think he is kind of naive, and maybe his smiles don’t always reach his eyes but maybe he just seems kind of lonely and people appreciate that he makes the effort. Maybe the women of Gotham are not all money-grubbing and shallow and actually recognize a good guy when they see one.
  • That actually will definitely come up but it’s still on the list because it relates to the next bullet point.
  • Models! In general models start working at 16 and are done when they’re 23. Modeling is an industry full of very young girls getting chewed up and spit out and sorry but you will never convince me that Batman would take advantage of that even under the guise of Billionaire Bruce Wayne. If you are a model and you meet Bruce Wayne he will be nice and he will be respectful and honestly he will act like a protective older brother and it’s just??? Such a change of pace???? He’s so nice????? And if they aren’t happy with their agency maybe he will direct them to some Wayne Enterprises subsidiary, and maybe when some photographer is being a skeeve they let him know and he never works in that town again, and maybe if they end up needing to go to rehab he pays for it because he can afford it and actually he owns the rehab center and also he is the sweetest man alive. So maybe when they need a plus one to a fashion event, they invite Bruce Wayne because they know he won’t take advantage, and maybe Bruce has a list of women and their interests so if he needs a plus one and he knows Anita loves the ballet he will call her up and they will go and they will mostly talk about her new cat because his name is Chairman Meow and she loves him the most. And when people ask later if she totally banged Bruce Wayne she says yes, it was awesome, his dick was huge, because idk man sometimes when a guy is nice you just tell people that as a courtesy. Then at parties Bruce Wayne is just surrounded by models and everyone shakes their heads and tsks about it while they ask him how he’s been and show him pictures of their cats.
  • Which is not to suggest that maybe when they are older and in a more stable place in their lives they do not actually bang Bruce Wayne because they probably do. Who wouldn’t???
  • One day some little girl is worried that Batman might skip her neighborhood and she decides the best way to make sure he shows is to leave some cookies on the roof of her building because if it’s good enough for Santa then why not Batman? But she’s like six so of course they are basically inedible and they’re supposed to look like bats but they kind of just look like poorly drawn distant seagulls and she leaves them out with a note like “For Batman only do not touch!!” and in the morning they are gone and she is satisfied that Batman has been patrolling to keep her safe. And eventually all the kids are doing this in Gotham and it’s just a whole buffet of confusingly-shaped poorly-made attempts at cookies (you have to make them yourself the children decide because when you are a kid it is important to have Rituals). Eventually Batman can tell which neighborhoods are having the most trouble based on density of cookies per block. He doesn’t actually eat them because he does not want to get food poisoning and at least once he’s pretty sure those were made of Play-Doh but he takes them anyway because he knows it helps kids feel safe.
  • A criminal tries to leave out poison cookies once but not only does he not eat them, it is immediately obvious what’s going on because these actually look like food.
  • If the cookies are still there in the morning the children all have a crisis because something is wrong with Batman and the religious kids pray and the nonreligious kids do weird superstitious shit that they have convinced themselves is helpful.
  • Kids love Batman okay especially little girls, as a little girl who loved Batman I can confirm.
  • Some of them probably leave out drawings and he keeps them in the Batcave sorry these are just Facts.
  • Bruce Wayne’s doctor is paid a fortune to make housecalls and she is well aware by now that he is Batman, but she lets him claim he was bungee jumping or whatever the fuck it is he thinks is plausible because she knew his father and she remembers when he was a cute kid and honestly who even cares.
  • Bruce Wayne’s dentist has also figured out that he is Batman because jesus fucking christ we just replaced those crowns what are you even DOING to your TEETH half of these are just implants now you are going to need dentures by forty please god just wear a fucking mouthguard draw some scary fangs on it if you have to like he appreciates how much money he is making replacing this man’s teeth but even he has limits
  • Bruce Wayne’s personal accountant has also figured him out because his money just falls into a goddamn non-deductible pit and he kept trying to lie about it and then changing the lie around when he realized the answer he was giving impacted his return and I’m sorry Bruce I might not be rich but even I know that you probably did not spend several million dollars this year on cheesecakes covered in gold leaf and you accidentally filed a project cost analysis for a stealth jet in with your receipts but lucky for you I am NICE and I shredded it for you and also those projections were poorly done so hit me up if you want someone who actually knows how regression works buddy
  • Catwoman never tries to rob Bruce Wayne because cats know that he is a cool guy. Actually it’s Batman that is always nice to cats but they smell the same so the cats don’t know the difference. They’re just like naw girl, that territory belongs to a friend of cats, don’t trespass unless it is for scritches because that guy gives some good scritches.
  • Robin eats one of the batcookies once and regrets it for the rest of the night. Don’t eat cookies left outside by small children. Just don’t.
  • Bruce Wayne got a JD/MBA and graduated at the top of his class, I know people like the idea of dropout Bruce Wayne backpacking around and learning to punch people but he also does not want to tank his father’s company or let criminals escape justice through Bat-shaped loopholes?? He probably went to Yale and took max credits every semester and spent all his time studying and working out and then went off in summers to learn new and exciting ways to punch a dude. He had no social life he slept like six hours max every night and he ruined the curve for everyone, what a dick.
Stereotype of satanism

It bothers me that in any mention of the devil and satanic worshipers people immediately think of punk rock, piercing, ripped jeans, cat callers, cars driving by with music on blast, heavy drinkers, goths, people with nerves of steel, mo-hawks, and rebelling teens with sharp eyeliner. 

We’ve wasted far too much time explaining that Satanism has nothing to do with kidnapping, drug abuse, child molestation, animal or child sacrifice, or any number of other acts that idiots, hysterics or opportunists would like to credit us with. Satanism is a life-loving, rational philosophy that millions of people adhere to (consciously or not). 

 Like please, people who support the satanic commandments have to fit a stereotype. 

(Side note: We also wear pink flowery dresses, and like listening to soft, gentle music, dancing in a field of flowers and singing loudly in the shower (poorly and alone), or just generally fit the conventional form of ‘normal’ or being a ‘sweet person’. I don’t have to look a certain way to be a certain way.)

Also, please know what Satanism is about. 

Look at the Satanic rules for instance:

  1. Do not give opinions or advice unless you are asked.
  2. Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure they want to hear them.
  3. When in another’s lair, show him respect or else do not go there.
  4. If a guest in your lair annoys you, treat him cruelly and without mercy.
  5. Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal.
  6. Do not take that which does not belong to you unless it is a burden to the other person and he cries out to be relieved.
  7. Acknowledge the power of magic if you have employed it successfully to obtain your desires. If you deny the power of magic after having called upon it with success, you will lose all you have obtained.
  8. Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself.
  9. Do not harm little children.
  10. Do not kill non-human animals unless you are attacked or for your food.
  11. When walking in open territory, bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask him to stop. If he does not stop, destroy him.

Look at the sins:

  1. Stupidity
    The top of the list for Satanic Sins. The Cardinal Sin of Satanism. It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity. It depends on people going along with whatever they are told. The media promotes a cultivated stupidity as a posture that is not only acceptable but laudable. Satanists must learn to see through the tricks and cannot afford to be stupid.
  2. Pretentiousness
    Empty posturing can be most irritating and isn’t applying the cardinal rules of Lesser Magic. On equal footing with stupidity for what keeps the money in circulation these days. Everyone’s made to feel like a big shot, whether they can come up with the goods or not.
  3. Solipsism
    Can be very dangerous for Satanists. Projecting your reactions, responses and sensibilities onto someone who is probably far less attuned than you are. It is the mistake of expecting people to give you the same consideration, courtesy and respect that you naturally give them. They won’t. Instead, Satanists must strive to apply the dictum of “Do unto others as they do unto you.” It’s work for most of us and requires constant vigilance lest you slip into a comfortable illusion of everyone being like you. As has been said, certain utopias would be ideal in a nation of philosophers, but unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, from a Machiavellian standpoint) we are far from that point.
  4. Self-deceit
    It’s in the “Nine Satanic Statements” but deserves to be repeated here. Another cardinal sin. We must not pay homage to any of the sacred cows presented to us, including the roles we are expected to play ourselves. The only time self-deceit should be entered into is when it’s fun, and with awareness. But then, it’s not self-deceit!
  5. Herd Conformity
    That’s obvious from a Satanic stance. It’s all right to conform to a person’s wishes, if it ultimately benefits you. But only fools follow along with the herd, letting an impersonal entity dictate to you. The key is to choose a master wisely instead of being enslaved by the whims of the many.
  6. Lack of Perspective
    Again, this one can lead to a lot of pain for a Satanist. You must never lose sight of who and what you are, and what a threat you can be, by your very existence. We are making history right now, every day. Always keep the wider historical and social picture in mind. That is an important key to both Lesser and Greater Magic. See the patterns and fit things together as you want the pieces to fall into place. Do not be swayed by herd constraints—know that you are working on another level entirely from the rest of the world.
  7. Forgetfulness of Past Orthodoxies
    Be aware that this is one of the keys to brainwashing people into accepting something new and different, when in reality it’s something that was once widely accepted but is now presented in a new package. We are expected to rave about the genius of the creator and forget the original. This makes for a disposable society.
  8. Counterproductive Pride
    That first word is important. Pride is great up to the point you begin to throw out the baby with the bathwater. The rule of Satanism is: if it works for you, great. When it stops working for you, when you’ve painted yourself into a corner and the only way out is to say, I’m sorry, I made a mistake, I wish we could compromise somehow, then do it.
  9. Lack of Aesthetics
    This is the physical application of the Balance Factor. Aesthetics is important in Lesser Magic and should be cultivated. It is obvious that no one can collect any money off classical standards of beauty and form most of the time so they are discouraged in a consumer society, but an eye for beauty, for balance, is an essential Satanic tool and must be applied for greatest magical effectiveness. It’s not what’s supposed to be pleasing—it’s what is. Aesthetics is a personal thing, reflective of one’s own nature, but there are universally pleasing and harmonious configurations that should not be denied.

And the Nine Satanic Statements:

  1. Satan represents indulgence instead of abstinence!
  2. Satan represents vital existence instead of spiritual pipe dreams!
  3. Satan represents undefiled wisdom instead of hypocritical self-deceit!
  4. Satan represents kindness to those who deserve it instead of love wasted on ingrates!
  5. Satan represents vengeance instead of turning the other cheek!
  6. Satan represents responsibility to the responsible instead of concern for psychic vampires!
  7. Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often worse than those that walk on all-fours, who, because of his “divine spiritual and intellectual development,” has become the most vicious animal of all!
  8. Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification!
  9. Satan has been the best friend the Church has ever had, as He has kept it in business all these years!
719 recap and thoughts.

ONE. MORE. EPISODE. TO. GO. I can already picture the hot mess I’m going to be once the end credits roll for the last time. As bad as this is, if there is a spin off to the show 100% I’m going to watch it. I’ll probably even turn this blog into a fan page for whatever spinoff show happens. My one hope is that they learnt their lesson from this show with all the plot holes and let downs, and that the spinoff will be something incredible! But getting back on track, I really, really enjoyed this episode and the cast and crew were right when saying this penultimate episode really did feel like a finale!

“I have a master’s degree in American literature. There is nothing I can’t handle.” Uhh, okay? I wish we didn’t get that copout Ezra reveal back in Season 4 because tbh I would be satisfied if he was A.D. Too bad his literature skills can’t help when Archer’s body is actually removed from Aria’s trunk. 

- Mona is A.D… But for real. This had only the liars shocked. Why? Because they need to learn that when something is presented to them as obvious as “Mona is A.D” that it is actually far from the truth. 

- Time for pie. Who sent this to Mona? Was it A.D? Was she close to coming face to face with Uber A? Also, this quote: “We swim around in this fishbowl like we’re in control. We’re not. Someone’s always been watching, manipulating.” makes me feel like Mona knows that Uber A has been around for much longer. 

- Hidden passageways. So, Caleb, Hanna and Spencer find a passageway at the Two Crows which is how Mona got from the diner to the Bell Tower the night Charlotte was killed. Also, really sweet scene between Spencer and Caleb! 

- He’s coming for you.  It wasn’t that long ago that we were all joking around about how the 610 flash forward classroom scene was probably going to be a dream, but yep, you guessed it, it was a terrifying nightmare of Emily’s. Well, atleast they didn’t forget to include it somewhere before the show ends *dramatic eye roll*. 

- Sweet moment between Spencer and Mary. I really thought at the time of this scene that it was going to be the last time we were going to see Mary and I was a little angry. BUT, that scene was incredibly sweet, especially when Spencer grabbed Mary’s hand. “I owe you an entire life.” 

- Nerdy Mona is guilty. Again, predicted by 90% of the fandom. Mona killed Charlotte in order to protect the girls as Charlotte never got better and was going to torment the liars once again. My one problem with this is why didn’t Mona give herself up as Charlotte’s killer in 701 when her BEST FRIEND Hanna was being tortured for killing the person SHE actually killed?! 

- Completed puzzle. So, the last task of the game was to find out who killed Charlotte. After this is revealed, the final pieces of the board game are given to the liars. So, the puzzle actually doesn’t have much relevance except it generated some augmented reality which leads the liars to Dunhills body at Aunt Carols. Uh-huh..

- Mary Drake’s confession. She finally comes clean to the Rosewood P.D about killing her sister all those years ago (in PLL time) and also takes the fall for Archer Dunhills murder, which in hand gives the liars a get out of jail free card. Tanner pretty much tells the girls she know they’re guilty; she even made them watch Mary Drake confess in order for at least one of them crack and tell the truth. But, they let Mary take the fall and they all get to live a jail-free life. 

- #PLLEndgame is over. A.D pretty much leaves town after their game is complete. Both Charlotte and Dunhill’s murders have been “solved” and the board game shuts down. We feel a sense of relief for these girls, but WAIT… there’s a two hour finale next week! And ALSO, a one year time jump between 719 and 720! Uh-huh, sounds A-mazing! #PLLGameOver. 

- Next weeks promo looks EPIC! There’s Wren with a gun, Mona knocking out Spencer (throwback to 225), Uber A revealing themselves to Mona, Melissa is back AND I felt MAJOR Twincer vibes!!!

- Really pleased with this episode. It did feel like a finale, the only thing missing is the identity and motives of Uber A. I CANNOT WAIT until the finale! So many mixed emotions but one definitely being relief because we can finally let these girls live the rest of their lives without someone taunting them. 

- I’m gonna go ahead and give this episode a 9/10. Purely because we found out who killed Charlotte which is something we’d usually have to wait until a finale for. Also the acting in this episode was outstanding!

Lucien has finally been invited to join the guys’ night out, and it results in new information about Rhys’s past.

“I invited Lucien, by the way. He’ll be here soon.” Cassian announces as he takes a seat at Rhys and Azriel’s table at Rita’s. It’s their monthly night out together, just the guys, while their wives and mates entertain themselves elsewhere downtown. “I know you don’t like him, Rhys. But he has, like, no friends. He could use this.” Cassian takes a sip of his drink and endures his high lord’s silence. “And last time we didn’t invite him, it apparently upset Elain and Nesta gave me crap about it for a week,” he adds.

“I never said I have a problem with Lucien coming with us,” Rhys says coolly. “That’s perfectly fine.”

Cassian dips his fingers in his glass and flicks beer at his High Lord. “Don’t do the passive-aggressive thing, Rhys. Not cool.”

Azriel watches them calmly, looking, as always, as though he has about eighty relevant secrets under his belt that he’s choosing not to share.

“I’m not, as you put it, ‘doing the passive aggressive thing.” Rhys says. “I am genuine in my sentiment that he should come out with us, but you’ll forgive me if I’m not entirely comfortable around him.”

“Because of what went down with Tamlin?”

“Not exactly.”

Cassian lowers his drink. “Is there… something else?”

Rhys puts a hand flat on the table, drums his fingers lightly. He does not answer.

Az cocks his head at him. “Is there something else, Rhysand?”

“If you must know,” Rhys says carefully, “Lucien and I have had… relations… in the past.”

“Well, yeah, of course,” Cassian says, slightly confused as he picks up his beer again. “He was the right hand of that asshole, you guys ran into each other plenty.”

Az and Rhys look at each other.

“Cassian,” Rhys tries again, “I mean that Lucien and I have had sex.”

Cassian spits beer across the table. “What?” He chokes, messily wiping at his chin. “You’re kidding.”

LWA: Half-season thoughts.

This show is great. It’s still solid. As expected of Trigger. Yay~

*claps hands* パチパチパチ (^ ∀ ^∫)∫”“

That said, if I wasn’t so busy lately, I would love to write out more analysis or come up with theories on what might happen in the second cour. But at the same time, I’ve become pretty content with just watching LWA as it is and waiting on suspense for the big reveal.

Besides, too often do my theories end up turning into these blown-up expectations anyway and then I get a little depressed when it’s doesn’t happen the way I thought it would…so it’s probably better for me to just wait.

Anywhoo~ I still want to go over briefly the three biggest forces driving the plot so far:

Akko - I asked for character development and they delivered. *sends basket of mini-muffins to studio as thanks*

What’s great about Akko’s growth is that it’s not instantaneous or miraculous. It didn’t occur over the course of two-three episodes like how it might for characters in another series. It’s still happening as we speak.

Yes, she was hit with the realization that she’s not in a mahou shoujo anime just going to one day be able to do everything Chariot was capable of doing. That she can’t just wish for something a million times and expect it to be delivered on her doorstep, fully installed and functioning.

She’s got to actually work for it and she did.

I mean, look at how she’s coming along with her metamorphosis magic! Isn’t that amazing?

But at the same time, she’s still impatient, reckless, thick-headed and oh my god, so whiny. She still gets easily jealous over Diana’s superior skill. Instead of letting that rivalry serve as motivation for her to improve, Akko tries to challenge Diana head-on when she’s clearly not ready for it yet. On top of that, she abuses magic by playing mean pranks on others. Hardly the appropriate behavior for a proper witch, let alone a disciple of Chariot.

In short, Akko’s got the work ethic down…but she has yet to outgrow that childish mindset.

And I love that they’re dedicating so many episodes to showing that. I love that they’re saying making a big show of yourself does not equal entitled recognition or qualification. I’m glad that not everything goes Akko’s way and that her friends don’t mince their words when they tell her the truth. That her complaints will get her nowhere except into more trouble and that what’s wrong is Akko refusing to face reality because she stubbornly won’t let go of these rosy visions on what it’s like to be a witch.

And Akko does come to understand this flaw of hers, slowly and little by little. It’s her own immaturity and desire to beat Diana at some pointless glory game that continue to set her back every time she makes a step forward.

Akko’s got great potential and she really can become a magnificent witch if she tries. But she’s got to learn to calm down, look at the bigger picture and curb that temper first. And of course, that’s going to take a lot of time…which we do have. Another 12-episodes worth of it, in fact. If Akko makes good use of that time, by the end, I wouldn’t doubt she’d have surpass Chariot in ways even she didn’t think was possible.

So let’s hope for that, yea? I’m looking forward to Akko overcoming her obstacles, external and personal. But I’m also positive that regardless of whatever progress she makes, it won’t change the best of who she is. And that’s really what’s important here. Because Akko just wouldn’t be Akko if she’s not Akko.

Diana - Still my Best Girl. Always my Best Girl.

But I’m going to do her segment in a slightly more technical manner than I did Akko’s.

Diana hasn’t received any significant development since episode 2 . For the most part, her role was to serve as a foil to our bumbling heroine.

While that is helpful in highlighting the areas that Akko is weak in and needs to work on, it doesn’t tell us more about Diana than what we already know.

I mean, it’s great to finally get some insight on what drives her in the most recent ep. She’s probably the only student to take the matters of the declining magical population so seriously that she already made it her life goal to reverse the dilemma. It’s a very admirable thing to do so it’s no wonder why everyone looks to her for help.

However, this constant reliance on Diana indicates nobody else is really contributing anything to find a solution. Sure, the teachers mull over it in their office meetings and maybe the younger witches might discuss it among themselves. But out of habit, they’ll all turn to Diana to save the day and that’s not good.

Moreover, knowing Diana, she’ll likely let this get to her head. Her intentions are in the right place but her arrogance may be detrimental to her efforts. Since everybody is always expecting Diana to do things for them and Diana is more than happy to take charge and direct them instead of guiding them to find answers on their own (the festival preparations in a nutshell), how will they react when Diana encounters a problem that all her intellect and magic cannot solve?

Because I don’t believe that magic exists for the sake of itself in this universe. I think in order for there to be magic, there has to be people to believe in it. Which could explain why there are Nine Olde Witches credited instead of just one person and why the witch community is diminishing. The less people there is to believe in magic and enforce it with their wills, the faster magic disappears.

To put it simply, it’s not an issue that one tackles alone. But Diana is going at it alone and that’s her biggest mistake.

Keep in mind, this is not necessarily a bad thing because that opens doors for Diana to change as well.

Her research in the Grand Triskelion to aid her in revitalizing magic is intertwined with Akko’s path in breaking the seal on it so they’ll inevitably work together at some point. Maybe by then, Akko will have matured enough not to always compare herself against Diana. Then Diana won’t need to criticize Akko for being a nuisance anymore, they’ll gradually see eye-to-eye in cooperating, magic is saved, and celebrations will be had. Whoohoo~

In the middle of all that, though, I suspect Diana will realize what she lacks. In contrast to Akko, whose strength lies in her ability to dream, Diana is all textbook and studies and basically, no fun. She’s… a pure-blooded Hermione with no one to call a real friend.

Once she recognizes that her methods won’t help her and witnesses what Akko can do, perhaps it’ll break her restrictive views on magic along with that haughty attitude of hers. Maybe she’ll remember how she was once awed by magic, like when she was so excited to attend Chariot’s performance as a child. Maybe she’ll finally learn to be humble with this lesson learned. Hell, maybe she’ll even gain new powers as a result.

Or maybe all of the above. Who knows?

In any case, there’s more for Diana in store and I can’t wait to see how that plays out. Diana is not there to be Akko’s enemy, after all, like I said since the beginning. She’s her own character just like Akko so it’d be absurd for her to not have her own story to develop.

Ursula/Chariot - *makes strangling noises* Tfw you want to know what’s the deal behind all her secrecy but at the same time, want to enjoy everything this anime has to offer without spoiling any intended effects!!!!! AAAAGGGHHH!!!!!

*deflates* Well, at least we’ve been getting more flashbacks and clues about Chariot lately. The trials Akko is currently facing seem like the same ones Chariot underwent when she was young. But while no one knows how things will turn out for Akko (I think it’s safe to bet she’ll get a happy ending, though), it is sort of implied that Chariot came up short and might’ve paid a hefty price for it.

Like, if Akko’s encounter with Professor Woodward was any indication, maybe she had to give up her identity as Chariot? Maybe she couldn’t harness the Grand Triskelion’s power and had to seal it by throwing her past away?

I dunno, just a thought.

There’s also those flashbacks from ep 11 to consider and I’ve seen pictures of Chariot facing off against another witch (also pictured in those flashbacks), whose profile looks every bit the antagonist this show has been missing. So I wonder when she’ll appear and how it’ll affect the story.

But like I said, I’m content to wait it out. Reveal Chariot’s backstory in increments per episode and build it up that way. I’m not going anywhere so just don’t disappoint me. :)

Oh, and if DVD/Blu-ray sales for LWA go really well, we should demand an OVA from Trigger centering around Chariot’s past and all the adventures she’s experienced at Luna Nova. Agree? AgreeAgreeAgree?!?! 8D

Bonus: Supporting Charas - Just wanted to say that I love these girls and that I’m glad they’ve grown close enough that they can casually hang out like this to roast Akko. <3

Here’s hoping they’ll be accompanying Akko in the grand finale cuz I’m sure the climax is going to be BIG. It’s going to be BIG, I tell you. BIG.

And please have Sucy spit on someone’s face before this ends. Please oh please please PLEASE pretty please? *puppy eyes* (◕ฺω◕ฺ)

KAISOO 3.0

[1.0] [2.0]

((Disclaimer: I don’t claim my analysis as facts. It’s an analysis based on one pov. If you have something to say, please be constructive. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. Thank you.))

Firstly, I’m still learning and forever will be. If you’re an expert in this area, do inform me if I mentioned a wrong fact. It helps me a lot honestly.

So, my prof told me that she believes in three things under the romantic gestures - eye contact, personal space, and grooming/preening. Skinship becomes common now that it hard to differentiate between romantic or just platonic unless there are different body languages apply. Especially in a country like SK, which skinship among men is pretty common. Even Hen ry once mentioned in Happy Together, the one thing that surprised him the most about SK is the frequent physical contact between men.

One thing I noticed about KD is how their bodies have this certain pulls between them which lead to today’s topic - gravitation (under personal space and eye contact). Some called it magnetic pull. Keep in mind that human behavioral is a big field of scope.

Anyway, according to google dictionary, gravitation means

  1. Movement, or a tendency to move, toward a center of attractive force, as in the falling of bodies to the earth
  2. Movement toward or attraction to something.

The part that bolded apply to body language.

Two person who is attracted to each other has the tendency to attract or gravitate towards each other, including the eyes, not just the body. It’s not a part of the conscious mind. It’s a part of the subconscious mind. The majority of the body languages are a part of the subconscious mind. That’s why they said our body is more honest than our mouth - actions speak louder than words indeed. There’s no lie in that. Because those actions are not filtered. It’s directly transmitted from your brain to your body then movements. It’s like responding to stimuli when the signal is not transmitted to the brain but instead to the motor neuron for fast response. It’s mostly involuntarily.

When a person got used to their partner’s presence, they tend to gravitate towards each other. Their body are familiar with him/her and it becomes a part of their implicit memory - something you do spontaneously and automatically.

If you pay attention to your parents or your friends who are in a relationship, you can see they unconsciously move closer in a room filled with people like a party or gathering or how their eyes just unconsciously find each other. It’s a normal thing you do to your crush as well. You just want to be closer or look at them. Your mind found the idea that looking or stay close to your source of interest/comfort very pleasing and joyful.

You also tend to gravitate in a sense that you want to share everything with your partner. Like when you found something interesting, the first thing you do probably let him/her know about it or just simply look at them. And you have that mutual agreement between the two of you. ’Do you get it?’ ‘I got it.’ You want to include them in your life and include yourself in their life. To have something in common. And these small things are very meaningful.


Now, time for some example~ Let’s the deluluness begin!

1. These two gifs actually didn’t happen right after another (x). KS moved closer to JI in the beginning of the video while JI moved closer at 1.00.

It’s like close is just not close enough. There was no concrete or rational reason to explain this behavior.

This one too.


When you take a picture in a group of people, your body moves inwards especially if you’re at the corner. But one thing I notice about KD, they don’t just move inwards, they stick to each other. 


Another clear example is this one. My fav pic of KD. You can see how the others were just bros taking picture tghtr.

Then we have KD glued face to face.


This is really endearing to watch. Laughing tghtr! I love watching KS laughing! See how his body just gravitates towards JI.

This is definitely not something KS planned to do.

You can see how awkward JI’s body posture. He didn’t know how to react when KS suddenly hugged his sides. And how fast KS just pulled away like oh shit what I did I do. (just my delulu side)

Look at how long JI just kneeled on the ground while staring at KS.

Still staring.


Next, JI sure like to travel~ His power is teleportation anyway hehehe (nice joke there Am lol)

Skipping everyone just to stand next to KS.

Oh, KS too?


Just KD sitting next/close to each other behind the scene.


Let’s move on to one of the honest body parts which are our eyes. If you notice the gif below, PCY also moves his eyes towards OSH.

But only JI’s eyes remained. A simple reminder here, KS wasn’t even talking. Lay was talking.

JI just can’t get enough. Another reminder, KS wasn’t even talking. JM was talking. PCY, OSH and BH were also looking at JM’s direction.

JI, BH was talking. He just unconsciously mirrored KS’s action.

This is my fav staring gif of JI’s. His gazes were so soft (just delulu me).

Flustered KS is the best. (probably be my next analysis. still in progress of collecting evidence)

Loot at these cuties. What were u guys doing smiling like that?


Ji the lost puppy.

This is from my own experience. I’ve only gone to their concert twice and I got tix at the front for both concerts (e x oluxion2). As expected my eyes are glued to both of them. Haha. I don’t have any proof for this bcoz I don’t like to hold my phone/camera during concerts. I want to see everything that I can with my own eyes.

But I notice one thing tho. It just funny how my eyes were looking/following them while their eyes were finding each other. There was one time JI was at the other side of the stage and KS was at the other end. And I saw JI looked at the other side. I was sure he was looking at KS bcoz there was no one else at the other end. Then when they were leaving the stage for each interval, both of them always looked for each other behind their backs. Like checking if ji/ks is there. Maybe I’m just delulu. They were looking for each other bcoz when they found them, they exited the stage. Similar to when you check that your friend/anyone behind you, you can walk ahead. You know they’re with you.

I also did talk to other fans. B4 1st April, I never ever mention about KD to anyone. Even on my sns. But I talk to other e x o l that likes JI and KS. A friend of mine went to their concert (diff place as mine). She’s a JI stan. She told me when JI was injured and he sat on the chair at the back while the members move to the front, JI always looked at KS’s direction. I heard similar stories from other JI’s stan who went to the same concert. Then a KS’s stan told me she’s jealous of the way KS look at JI. asdfghjkl I’m like how?? She said when no one else was looking like when there was a member who was talking or doing a funny thing (audience attention on that member), KS will just quietly looked at JI. I’m …. omg. hehee.

Both of them don’t even have a reason to look at each other. They just do bcoz they just want to. But I don’t have any proof for this since it’s just convos I have w other fans and things we saw. Take it as it is and leave it as it is. But I totally recommend you guys go to the concert and just look at KD. They just have this certain aura/vibe around the two of them. Idk how to put this into words. It’s like watching my friend and her crush stealing glances at each other. The feelings are mutual but they don’t know about it. Then, act very shyly and I just want them to say hi. Haha.


I just noticed that this post is so long and I’ve provided ample of example/evidence. Well that’s it from me~ For now. Keep calm and support KD! Take care ;)

Top Ten Films of 2014

Last year, I made my first video top ten (which you can see here), and while that was fun, as it so happens I’m a bit too busy right now to go through all the trouble of making a video at the moment. So here we are, back to the old way of doing things.

On an interesting side note, I found an unintentional theme in my list this year. Many of my films are in some way about the creation of art, as well as the price paid to be a great artist. Also, many of these movies could be seen as “coming-of-age” films. Once again I find myself astonished at how many great films came out in a single year (and I haven even seen all of them yet). So as usual, you can find my long list of “honorable mentions” at the end. 

Like always, this is just my personal top ten films of the year. Even if we share the same tastes, I guarantee you that my list would be different than yours. It’s just too subjective.

So starting at number ten and counting down… here we go!





10. Mr. Turner

As far as pure craftsmanship goes, “Mr. Turner” is perhaps the most well made film of the year. Mick Leigh is a master, and every shot is purposeful and completely stunning. The film itself looks like an old beautiful painting. Timothy Spall sinks deep into his role as J.M.W. Turner, and it’s probably his best performance to date. The deliberate pacing and lack of traditional structure might turn away some viewers, but “Mr. Turner” is nevertheless a great work of art, and a portrait of a fascinating man.



9. Frank

I knew very little about this film before seeing it, and I think that’s a good thing. From the opening scene, I instantly fell in love with this darkly funny film. At it’s core, there’s some rather deep subject mater, and yet “Frank” cleverly offsets this with some truly hilarious moments that keep the film entertaining throughout. Domhnall Gleeson is outstanding here, but of course, the real star of the show is Michael Fassbender, who gives an incredibly expressive performance despite the fact that we can’t see his face. I enjoyed nearly every moment of this picture, and it’s definitely one that you need to see.



8. Ida

Some films just belong in the Critrion Collection. Ida is one such film. It’s haunting and artful and features the best black and white photography I’ve seen in years. The sharpness and contrast of every shot is remarkable. The narrative is beautifully simplistic. In fact, the minimalistic nature of the film as a whole is part of what makes it so special. “Ida” is sparse, gorgeous, and masterful. Certainly one of the best foreign films of the year.



7. Only Lovers Left Alive

Vampires are cool, but Tom Hiddleston and Tida Swinton bring it to a whole new level. These old lovers have seen it all, and while they still appreciate art, science, and philosophy, they’ve grown tired and indifferent while mankind continues to make the same mistakes.  Jim Jarmusch’s film is a special kind of vampire story, because it may be the first one to really capture just how lonely, dangerous, and exhausting being immortal really is (or would be).  "Only Lovers Left Alive" has a deliberate pacing that glides slowly along with it’s characters. Along the way, we learn how they live and what they’ve grown to appreciate, and it’s all quiet fascinating. It’s my opinion that “Only Lovers Left Alive” ranks as one of the very best vampire films ever made. 



6. The Grand Budapest Hotel

A Wes Anderson film can always put a smile on my face. His last few films have been some of his best, and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is certainly no exception. This film is so beautifully stylized, and so hilariously funny, I find it hard to believe that there’s anyone who wouldn’t enjoy this film. The cast is fantastically entertaining (especially Ralph Fiennes), the colors are vibrant, the humor is clever, and the filmmaking is flawless.  When I saw “Moonrise Kingdom”, I said it might be Wes Anderson’s best film yet…. when I saw “The Grand Budapest Hotel”, I said the same thing.



5. The Duke of Burgundy

Captivating and visually arresting, Peter Strickland’s “The Duke of Burgundy” is one of the most compelling films I saw all year. It’s beautifully shot, colored, and textured with elegant pacing and precise direction - I really can’t say enough positive things about this film. It’s surreal and challenging while retaining a soft and gentle nuance of love and tenderness. “The Duke of Burgundy” certainly won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I found it extraordinary and deeply inspiring.



4. Boyhood

I know many cinephiles will probably place “Boyhood” as their number one film of the year, and I wouldn’t fault them for that. Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” is one of the most innovative and uniquely profound films ever made. Shot over the course of 12 years, we literally watch Mason grow up before our eyes. It’s a remarkable experience unparalleled by any comparisons I could make. We owe it to Linklater for having the guts to push our medium forward in such a beautiful way. This will probably win Best Picture at the Oscars, and it’s easy to see why. 



3. Birdman: (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

Simply one of my favorite cinematic experiences in a very long time. In the first scene, I made a mental note that we were in a long take, but to my wonder and astonishment, that long take never ended. There are, of course, cuts and interludes (this isn’t a “Russain Ark” situation) but the effect is very much that Alejandro Iñárritu’s film is one singular shot. It’s remarkable, but could be called nothing more than an impressive gimmick if the film itself wasn’t so strong. 

This is the best cast ensemble of the year, and the cinematography is gorgeous (made more impressive again by the long takes). But “Birdman” also has some interesting things to say about the creation of art, as well as the criticism that always accompanies it. It’s an intriguing film, and one with something to say. I loved every minute of it.



2. Vi är Bäst! 

Every year, there are films that just seem to come out of nowhere and surprise me. Before it was released, I knew nothing of “We Are the Best”, nor was I familiar with Lukas Moodysson’s previous work. However, this film was perhaps the most enjoyable film I saw all year.

If you know nothing of this film, it’s the director’s adaptation of his wife’s graphic novel “Never Goodnight” (by Coco Moodysson). It centers around three young teenage girls living in 1980s Stockholm who start a punk band - despite two of them not knowing how to play an instrument. While the band plays an important role in the film, some of the most interesting scenes are when the girls are simply hanging out. The performances from these three young ladies are perhaps the most natural I’ve ever witnessed from anyone their age. At times, it seems that they’re not even acting at all, as if the cameras just happened to be there to catch these authentic moments. These girls are so funny, enduring, and most importantly, real. This film understands what it really means to be a hardcore punk. And that is a rare thing. I really can’t say enough good things about “We are the Best”. You just need to see it.


And my number one film of the year is…



1. Whiplash

This is not the most ambitious film of 2014. It’s not a space epic. It wasn’t shot over twelve years. It doesn’t give the illusion of being one continuous shot. It’s not even by a famous director. Yet, “Whiplash” was the single most thrilling  piece of cinematic art I saw all year.  

“Whiplash” tells the story of a young ambitious drummer who dreams of being one of the great jazz musicians of our time. He soon finds himself under the mentorship of a cutthroat teacher who is willing to do whatever it takes to push his students to the limit. The film shows painful abuse and heartache, but then just when you think the film will find contentment in an obvious solution, it aggressively charges forward into the single most intense, passionate, raw, violent, and beautiful final scene of the year. A scene that made my heart race until it finally cut to black, and the credits rolled. Then, and only then, did I finally catch my breath. This film bleeds with a passion that’s visible in every aspect, from its photography, to its editing, to the stellar performances. Enough can’t be said about Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons. They both give 100% to their roles, and it’s both beautiful and heartbreaking to watch.

I found “Whiplash” to be painfully relatable at times… and I’m sure that contributed to my fondness for the film itself. Nevertheless, I think everyone should see this amazing work of art. Damien Chazelle has crafted a challanging look at what it truly means to be a young artist with high ambitions. The road to greatness is filled with suffering, pain, loss, frustration, blood, sweat, and tears… and it seems the filmmakers here understand the price that is paid. 



So there you have it - My top ten films of 2014. Please let me know what your favorite films were! Now, some of you may have noticed that a certain favorite director of mine not on this list…. so please see my honorable mentions below.



Honorable Mentions 

.

Inherent Vice - I know! I know! I can’t believe it either. P.T. Anderson is my favorite director, and I do love this film…. it just didn’t move me like his other work as done in the past. “Inherent Vice” is great. I just like 10 other films more.

Gone Girl - Yet another one of my favorite directors. David Fincher is to the point where he really doesn’t make bad films anymore. The craftsmanship is just too good.

Calvary - This is a touching and somewhat heartbreaking portrait of a priest genuinely trying to live a good life. A thankless job to be sure. It’s bleak but Brandon Glesson gives a wonderfully tender performance.  

The Babadook - Rich with metaphor, this is easily one of the best horror films in years. Love it so much, and you really need to see it.

Under the Skin - Who could forget this surreal work of art from Jonathan Glazer? Scarlett Johansson does wonderful work here.

Jeune & Jolie - “Young & Beautiful” was an underrated French film from François Ozon. I really loved it a lot, though I might be in the minority.

Snowpiercer - Joon-ho Bong is a crazy good director, and “Snowpiercer” is a thrilling sci-fi action movie far more worthy of your time than most summer blockbusters. 

Top Five - Chris Rock made an excellent film with a deep Woody Allen influence. I really hope he will continue this style into future projects. 

Foxcatcher - A remarkable film. Bennett Miller is on a roll. There’s really nothing to complain about with this film. See it.

The One I Love - A fantastic little gem from Charlie McDowell. Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss are great.

The Imitation Game - A very sharp screenplay, and a brilliant performance from Benedict Cumberbatch.

A Most Wanted Man - The last leading performance from my favorite actor. 

Guardians of the Galaxy - Finally, Marvel made their finest MCU film yet. It’s fun and fast and a really great watch. 

Unfortunately I did not get the chance to see “A Most Violent Year”, “Winter Sleep”, “Goodbye to Language 3D”, “Leviathan” and serval other foreign films. I’m sure they all could have made my list if I had seen them.

Aloha!!! (Supernatural Cast x Reader)

Summary: Fun times at a Hawaiian convention… 

 Enjoy! :)


Y/N was currently on stage with Misha, Sebastian, Jensen and Jared. They were all currently in Honolulu, Hawaii for a small Supernatural convention.

“…Anyway, I was like, ‘No, Jared. I will not let you put fish in Misha’s car… Again.’” Y/N spoke into the microphone. That made the audience laugh.

Misha swung an arm around Y/N’s shoulders and spoke into his microphone. “She’s always looking out for me. She may have let Jared put fish in my car the first time, but oh no, a second time is just too much.”

That made everyone laugh again, including Jared himself and everyone else on stage.

Jared lifted his microphone up to speak. “I wouldn’t be complaining too much, Misha. Just last week, whenever we were doing a night shoot and we all had to sleep in our trailers, Y/N and Jensen waited till like 3:30 in the morning to sneak over to my trailer and start banging on my windows to wake me up. I was in a deep sleep, too.”

Sebastian leaned over past Y/N to look at Jared. “Wait. That’s what that was? I thought that was just some sort of accident with things falling over in the props department.”

Y/N and Jensen laughed and spoke into their microphones. “Nope.”

“Partners in crime.” Jensen commented as he Y/N high-fived.

The audience laughed again.

A little bit later…

“Now…” Y/N started as everyone had their attentions turned to the giant screen. “As you all know, since most of you probably live here, or are from places near here, the beaches in Hawaii are beautiful. My personal favorite would have to be in Waikiki. It just so happens, that yesterday, we all had a day off. Now, what would be the first thing you would think to do if you were near a beach and you had the day off?… I think we all know the answer. If you all look at the screen, me and my compadres would like to share with you some memories of our times at the beach yesterday.”

Pictures started popping up on screen. The first one was of Jensen drawing a smiley face out of sunscreen on Jared’s stomach when he had fallen asleep. The next two or three photos were of Sebastian and Misha attempting to surf.

“I take credit for those pictures.” Y/N stated. “I was sunbathing, and I looked out into the ocean and saw them trying to surf. First thing that popped into my head, was ‘This is just to good to resist.’”

That made everyone laugh. The next one was of Y/N going against Jensen in a chicken fight. Y/N was on Jared’s shoulders while Jensen was on Sebastian’s shoulders.

“Oh, oh, oh,” Misha started to say. “Let me tell you, that this was not an easy picture to take. The current is very strong, so you can imagine how difficult it was to keep your feet in place.”

“You’re telling me.” Jensen commented. “I’m having to go up against Y/N, who had an unfair advantage might I add, getting to be on Jared’s shoulders.”

“Nah… ” Y/N said. “Although, now that I think about it, I could’ve just gotten on Misha’s shoulders and Jared could’ve taken the picture.”

“Or…” Sebastian started to say. “We all could’ve just not played chicken fight in the Pacific Ocean in the first place.”

The whole cast just stayed silent for a moment before all speaking at once. “Nah…”

The whole audience laughed before they all went silent as they saw the next picture pop up on the screen. All at once everyone started laughing again, including all the guys on stage.

Y/N looked up at the screen before groaning and putting her face in her hands. She kept her face down as she spoke into the microphone. “This picture is proof that you should not fall asleep while sunbathing with these four around. You might just wake up buried in sand.”

That’s right, the picture was of Y/N buried in the sand. The only part of her that was visible was from the neck up. Misha, Jensen, Jared and Sebastian were sitting around her. You could see Y/N’s face expression was that of being absolutely not amused.

“Aww, but you still love us.” Misha stated with his blue puppy dog eyes.

“Oh, please don’t do that.” Y/N whined. “You know I can’t stay mad when you do that with those gorgeous blue eyes of yours.”

“I rest my case.” Misha said smugly.

The audience laughed again as the panel continued.

A bit later…

“How low can you go, Jared?!” Y/N exclaimed into her microphone as she and Jensen watched Misha and Sebastian hold up a limbo rod for Jared to go under. It was only logical that they play limbo. They were in Hawaii. The whole panel, and even convention had a very Hawaiian atmosphere to it. All the guys had on Hawaiian shirts, and Y/N had on a red dress with white Hawaiian flowers on it.

“He’s got it… He’s got it…” Jensen said anxiously into his microphone. “And he’s…got t!”

Jared popped back up into standing completely upright. He’s grabbed his microphone. “And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how it’s done.”

Y/N just rolled her eyes playfully as the panel continued some more.

After a while it was time for the panel to end.

“Thank you, everyone! We’ve had so much fun here, today.” Sebastian said into the microphone.

“Yes, be sure to come back tomorrow for a few more of our individual panels.” Misha said. “Y/N and I will be having one at around ten-ish? I think.” He looked over at Y/N questioningly.

Y/N smiled. “Yes. Who knows? Maybe there’ll be a hula contest…”

The audience laughed again. Everyone seemed like they’d had a good time.

“So until tomorrow!” Jensen said.

“Aloha!!!” The whole cast said simultaneously as they waved goodbye before walking off stage.

Hawaii was fun. It really got you into the vacation spirit.

Effy Stonem Back to School Guide

This is mainly based on Effy in school in season 3 and season 4. All pictures are not mine, however all of the edits are so if you use any please give credit! Hope you enjoy, if you have anymore questions my ask is always open :)

Clothes 


Here is a list of all outfits Effy wore to school that I recreated. But, Effy basically wears the same type of clothes no matter where she goes. So if you want more inspiration you can find more outfits on my outfit recreation page which can be found here.

Also here are three outfits for school that I created inspired by Effy’s style: 

What would Effy wear to gym class?
This is probably the time where she would wear leggings. Go for black leggings, a graphic muscle tee or tshirt, and converse. 

How can I wear Effy type clothes if I have a strict dress code?
Modify the outfits to your dress code! You can replace fishnets and sheer tights with darker matte tights, leggings, leather/disco pants, or jeans. Look for longer dresses and skirts. You can also cover your shoulders with a flannel, leather jacket, denim jacket, and cardigan.

How can I make my school uniform more Effy?
Focus on jewelry and shoes! For shoes stick with combat boots and converse. Wear lots of jewelry such as gold and silver long necklaces and black plastic bracelets, chunky bracelets, and studded bracelets. Occasionally Effy wears hats like a gray knit beanie and black fedora, so you can also wear those!

School Supplies

Bags
We only see Effy wear two types of bags; a black and white tote and a leather purse. Now in the world of Skins, that size of a bag might work, but I prefer larger backpacks that will fit all of my supplies. Here are some Effy inspired backpacks! Also here you will find Effy school bag essentials.

Supplies:
 Effy strikes me as someone who doesn’t bring a lot of supplies. Just very light weight items that are necessary for school. Most of her supplies have black and white geo print on them. Here are some more inspired items.

Locker:
In the show we only get these short looks at Effy’s locker. The only stuff she has in there are a few pictures and her books. Out of experience this is the best way to go. The more stuff you have in there (like a locker shelf, mirror, magnets, containers, etc) the harder it will be to clear out at the end of the year. So like Effy keep it simple!

Makeup

Season 3:
Effy’s makeup in season three was more intense (although not as intense as her party looks) and more put together. Usually she would use a black pencil liner to line the top and bottom of her eye, put on a good amount of mascara, and top that of with a little gray eyeshadow. For the days she’s feeling more girly (picture on right) add some lip gloss and some blush. 

Season 4:
In season 4 Effy became more vulnerable and it shows in her makeup. Her dark makeup that she used as a shield became lighter. For me, I think this a better everyday makeup look since its easier and doesn’t take as much time. She still uses a black pencil liner but only a little on her top lid and on top of that the only thing she wears is mascara. 

Hairstyles

These are the main hairstyles we see Effy wear at school. On the left she keeps her hair down and naturally wavy but she takes the front hair pieces and pins it back in a slight poof. In the middle she keeps her hair down with it parted to the side and straightened. Occasionally she’ll wear this style with a headband. On the right Effy’s wearing her hair down and parted to the side, it is also in its natural curl, but for those with straight hair like me it’s probably a good idea to invest in a good curling wand or braid your hair the night before.

Gym hairstyles
Although we never see Effy in gym, I would assume she would wear her hair like this. The middle picture shows her hair in two messy fishtail braids, if you don’t know how to do this style, there are a ton of great tutorials you can find on youtube. The other two pictures show Effy with a ponytail. It’s almost the same style as the left picture above, but this time instead of her hair down it’s up. Also she keeps a few strands of hair out. 

Other

Would Effy join school clubs or sports?
Effy isn’t the type to really join anything. But please don’t let that stop you from trying new things and doing what you like. Colleges/universities love to see students participating in extra curricular activities. So please please please don’t not join clubs or sports just because Effy wouldn’t. 

How can I act like Effy at school?
Walk the halls with confidence. Observe and know what’s going on. And don’t give away too much about yourself. Ultimately when you’re a teenager it’s the time to figure out who you are. So getting inspiration from someone like Effy isn’t always a bad thing, just don’t try to be an exact copy of her and don’t adopt her bad traits.Take her confidence and brains!

Would Effy get good grades? Would she raise her hand? 
Effy is smart. We know that because she was in a private school that would expell her if she didn’t meet grade expectations. The reason she didn’t get good grades in season 4 was because she was really struggling with her mental illness. Short answer, yes she would if she is mentally well. Effy is quiet and observant she’s not really the type to raise her hand unless she needed to leave the room. But hey, if you know the answer to a question and you’re not afraid to raise your hand go for it! 

What would Effy eat for lunch?
I think she would eat something really simple. In Naomi’s episode in season 3 we see Effy eating some sort of a sandwich. Besides a sandwich she would probably also have a bag of chips and for some reason I’m thinking an apple haha. Go for what you like to eat just keep it simple!

What books would Effy read for school?
We see Effy reading “Georges Braque: A life” by Alex Danchev and “The Demon Headmaster” by Gillian Cross (but that’s a children’s book). In school the skins kids were reading “Hamlet” by Shakespeare. Also Effy in season 2 read greek myths to Tony, you might be able to get away with reading that. 

Again if you need help with anything specific or feel as if there is a topic I didn’t cover feel free to leave me a message. Soon I will have more back to school advice from my personal experience on my own blog so keep an eye out for that :)x
