impractical say

Murray is a very driven character. I find that I can just not worry about things ‘cause I know he’ll get them done ‘cause he really wants things to happen. He’s like my auto-pilot. Very focused and driven.

I Love How Adorably Impractical Chat Noir’s Costume Is

The most obvious issue: The long “tail.” It’s too easy to grab, and in fact, Ladybug always grabs it when she wants to stop him. It’s particularly ridiculous because his attacks are primarily close-range. Frankly I’m surprised more goons haven’t grasped it while he’s swinging his baton at someone else, but maybe they’re not conscious/intelligent enough. But it’s too cute to really hate.

Then there’s the fact that he has a giant bell for a zipper. If this were an anime targeted towards an older demographic, someone would have grabbed it or it would have gotten caught by now. His spindly model torso would have been unleashed to the world. Back when Astruc had a tumblr, someone actually asked him about this flaw and his only response was that “it’s cute.”

Yes, yes it is. It’s just funny to me because usually it’s the females who are fashionably impractical.

Say what you want about her suit but it isn’t getting caught on anything. She’s not even running around in high heels and someone pointed out the soles of her feet are reminiscent of parkour shoes. Even her pigtails are too short for easy pulling, especially since many of her attacks are long-distance anyway.

However Chat Noir at least has pockets, and Ladybug’s lack of which is a flaw that female-targeted clothing suffers far too much from. It’s not something I can easily overlook.

I thought Artemis was so adorable telling Holly that he would “have to do some reading up” on being friends and being so amazed at the idea of a friend so I just-

~Artemis calling Holly at really impractical times just to say hello friend

~Artemis sending Foaly details reports on all his latest technological advancements (even though he knows Foaly already knows about all of them) (he just likes to talk to his friend of the same intellect)

~Artemis showing Holly articles about Irish feminist movements just to have something to talk about with her

~Holly rolls her eyes and tells Artemis she has no interest in Mud-Men affairs but she secretly loves getting these and has them all saved

~Artemis organizing play-dates for his brothers like. All. The. Time. because now that he’s discovered friends he wants them to have friends too

~Artemis thinking really hard about what to buy everyone for their birthday

~He just wants it to be perfect for HIS FRIENDS

~Artemis talking to Butler about Holly like ALOT because he loves having a friend to talk about and Butler always listens (even if it gets a little old sometimes) but he is honestly just really proud of the fact that Artemis is being a normal teenager

~(Even if his only friend is a century-old elf)

~Holly is the only one Artemis would ever let call him Arty

(Kurt and Blaine AU Meeting) I’m so sorry for staring at you and following you I thought you were a tour guide.

“What are those?” Rachel says, standing on her toes to peer at thin, threaded fabric behind a glass display case. “Cuffs?”

“They’re mittens,” Kurt replies, admiring the woven gloves that look as though they’re made from sheer fabric. “Nineteenth century. Those ones look like they’re made out of cotton—but I’ve seen pairs done in silk before.”
