in honor of one of their last shows

Best of Fandometrics: SDCC Edition

Fandometrics launched in January 2015 and celebrates entertainment fandoms every week. SDCC celebrates fandom every July. Looking back at the last 129 weeks of data, we found a metric ton of overlap between what’s on the lists and what’s at the show. We pored over 387 unique TV, Movies, and Celebrities lists to bring you this Best of Fandometrics: SDCC edition.

Supernatural

Supernatural was in its 10th season the year Fandometrics launched. Tumblr had already become a home base for the show’s fans, and boy, are they passionate. SPN fans having a reaction GIF for everything has become a meme in its own right. One of the most popular reblog chains of all time is this thread about Dean in gym shorts.

The show dominates any list it can. It’s been ranked number one in our Year in Review’s Live Action TV list four years in a row and has been on every single weekly TV list since it launched.

The actors of SPN have just as much influence in our Celebs list. Jensen Ackles has appeared on a whopping 128/129 lists. Misha Collins (@mishacollins) has been on 96 and Jared Padalecki on 63.

Doctor Who

Supernatural may be in the midst of a long run, but it’s no match for the longevity of Doctor Who. The show started in 1963, and has appeared on 104 out of 129 TV lists.

According to Union Metrics, the November 23rd, 2013 episode “The Day of the Doctor” saw some of the highest engagement for a single episode of television. 1 million people shared 5 million posts that day.

Peter Capaldi is the Doctor with the most Celebs list appearances (5/129), but David Tennant comes in a close second (4/129). Jenna Coleman is the only companion to appear on the lists (2/129). Alex Kingston, who portrays the Doctor’s wife, River Song, appeared once on December 28th, 2015, following her storyline in that year’s Christmas episode. The newest Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, has appeared on the Celebs list every single week since her residency was announced: one week. We’re sure she’ll continue batting that high average.

Marvel Cinematic Universe

 MCU films are so prevalent on the Movies list we took a look at them holistically. Captain America: Civil War has appeared the most (45/129). This is followed by Thor (44/129), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (42/129) and Iron Man (35/129). The absolute most talked about movie on Tumblr has been made by Marvel 46 out of 129 weeks.

And the MCU superstars? Chris Evans has appeared on the Celebs list the most—all 129 of them. He’s followed closely by Tom Hiddleston (127/129) and Sebastian Stan (107/129).

Honorable Mentions

Tumblr TV fandoms are huge. They’re loyal. It’s no surprise that so many other titles that have appeared multiple times over the past 29 months. Here are just a few highlights:

  • Animated series Steven Universe is the only other show to appear on all 129 TV lists.
  • Another long-running series, Once Upon a Time, has appeared 108 times on the TV list.
  • And finally, Sherlock. The last of the famed Superwholock trifecta, made it on 97 TV lists. An impressive number considering their short seasons and long hiatuses.

How to Snag Potter

By Draco Malfoy


1. Midnight Rendezvous: Invite him to a duel and then bond over shared rule-breaking. Didn’t work because Weasley insisted on coming along. Reported them to Filch instead. 

2. Midnight Rendezvous, second attempt: Inspire gratitude by helping him deal with illegal dragon. Possible small talk about my name? Caught by McGonagall

3. Show off amazing Quidditch skills and really cool new broom. Nope. Granger said I bought my way onto the team (NOT TRUE) and I’m pretty sure Potter believed it. 

4. Send carefully composed and endearing Valentine (the only good thing Lockhart has ever done). I don’t think he liked it very much, despite the brilliant lyrics I composed. Ended up shifting blame onto the Girl Weasel. Fairly certain he doesn’t suspect.

5. Become gravely injured in order to appeal to his Savior Complex and inspire feelings of protectiveness. DO NOT ATTEMPT AGAIN. Was nearly murdered when I insulted that giant filthy chicken, and yet Potter decided that IT was the victim?! Unacceptable. I will not rest until that beast is put down.

6. A fun prank! He seems to enjoy stuff like this when the Weasley Twins do it, so I’m sure he will laugh. Learn to sew. It turns out that Potter has no sense of humor as well as very poor vision, because he nearly killed me with that damn Patronus Charm. Although I must admit, it is kind of hot that he can already do a Patronus.

7. Support him with Triwizard Tournament badges! Okay, this one was probably my fault. Pansy saw me experimenting with them and I changed the messages at the last minute. Why can’t he just realize that I don’t mean it?

8. Report Potter’s tragic story to the Prophet to increase sympathy and support. Exaggerate if it will get him more attention. I realize now that Potter does not like attention. Also Skeeter made out like Potter is in some sort of love triangle involving Granger, which is not even remotely acceptable. This was a mistake.

9. Show respect for his friends by composing an encouraging song in Weasley’s honor. Apparently making the title sound complimentary isn’t enough to negate other more insulting lyrics. Honestly this was doomed from the start because there is literally nothing good about the Weasel except his best friend.

10. Impress him with your status and power by leading the Inquisitorial Squad. Umbridge is an absolute menace and I am an idiot.

11. Make him jealous: Flirt excessively with Pansy. I don’t think he even noticed.

12. Show him your sensitive side by crying in the girls’ loo. Fuck.

Sorry I haven’t written in a while. 

13. Realize you’ve been a complete arse for your entire life. Regret everything. Do your best to become someone who does the right thing. Don’t identify Potter when asked. Stop cronies from killing him. Apologize sincerely after he gets you off at your trial. Invite him for dinner. 

14. Invite him for drinks. 

15. Buy him a birthday present. 

16. Kiss him. 

17. Go back to his flat. 

18. Refuse to leave his bed. This only works for so long.

19. Attempt to make him breakfast.

20. Come out to the Prophet together.

21. Date for three years.

22. Say “yes.”

I just noticed something

Forgive the bad screenshot, but I just realized that the Bastions were completely aware of what was going on around them during the battle at Eichenwald. We kinda saw into this during the Bastion short.

This screenshot was taken right after Reinhardt brought his hammer down atop one of the Bastion’s heads, and the other (instead of just shooting at reinhardt like any other bloodthirsty programmed killing machine would) allows themself a moment to actually look down at their fallen comrade, which… uh, costs them their life, i guess.

Also, I believe they hinted at this sort of tone when they showed the twitching bastion hand after reinhardt brought his hammer down the last of the first fleet.

Anyways, Bastions were sentient during the crisis and aware of what was going on around them. Now you know.

Emotional Imbalance

(Tell me if this has been done before)

Okay, if you guys haven’t get tired of my ideas (that again doesn’t makes sense) yet then here is another one!

> Never trust a 10,000 year old information. It is a sure a guarantee that it will be outdated.

> Roaming around the universe and answering distress signals, helping other aliens, and making alliances also means that they need to land on certain planets (obvious one if they needed to replenish their stocks)

> So! New planet means new explorations! Yay! But they don’t have any info to their latest planet. None at all. But hey, it has pretty gems on it as well as shiny fruits.

> The fruits are edible and safe for everyone. What they didn’t know is that certain gems has specific effects. And Lance happened to touch the rarer ones that absorbed negative emotions. Like literally absorb, it will left nothing inside the body.

> Lance is curious at first went he got back the castle. He feel lighter, much more happier, he feels that nothing can dampen his mood.

> His smiles and laughs for the next days is not forced unlike the past weeks. He never felt any of his usual insecurities. Everyday is full of sunshine and roses for him.

> At first the team is happy for this development. Hey, maybe Lance is the same with not being serious on battles and all but at least he is no longer egging Keith for competitions and that he is not rising up when someone bad mouthed him. They thought that Lance is learning to be mature now.

> Then as time passes it unnerved them.

> The team always see Lance smiling and happy. They should be happy too, right? Then why they feel that something is wrong?

> The first flag was when Pidge snapped at Lance at how he was not contributing at all. It was said out of anger due to stress and Pidge was horrified at what they said because deep down they know it was not true. Lance just stared at them with honest surprise written on his face. Then he smiled at Pidge and said that no feelings were harmed. That he understood and proceeded to ask if Pidge wanted to join him to lunch.

> Pidge observed Lance like hawk to see if the Blue Paladin was faking but through out the day Lance remained happy.

> The second flag was when Keith got angry at Lance during training. A lot of hurtful words were said that even Hunk was on the verge of crying for his best friend. Lance, on the other hand, just blinked at Keith then chuckled a bit and said that “Oh! so that is where I am wrong! Can you teach me how to do it?”. It threw Keith off guard and all his anger was forgotten.

> There were also times that Allura and Shiro snapped at Lance out of stress but the Blue Paladin always waved it off with a cheerful attitude.

> Everyone (except Hunk and Coran) felt bad that they always used Lance as an emotional punching bag and Lance was not even angry at them even for a little bit. He still cared for them in his usual way.

> The last flag though that made them think that something was really wrong was when a lot of aliens died during one of the battles where Voltron helped in order to win it. Lance clapped his hands and said that they should just do the burial rites in order to honor the dead. The Blue Paladin didn’t show any signs of mournings. It was as if the burial was just another form of joyful celebration.

> Lance received a punch from his comment and he was confused why everyone was angry at him. It was the only way to honor the dead, right?

> A lot of hurtful words were passed but one of them noticed that (maybe Hunk or Coran or even Pidge) Lance still kept his cheerful persona. Lance kept smiling and it only added fuel to the fire because the others thought they were being mocked.

> So the rest of the team investigated what was wrong with their Blue Paladin. With the help of their lions they finally figured out what was wrong. They looked for a way to reverse it and they did find a way.

> All’s well, end’s well? Nope! They didn’t account that the sudden rush of negativity and adding all the other negatives that was supposed to be felt during the past few weeks came all crashing down on Lance. It cause him to have an emotional breakdown to the point of needing him to be put in a healing pod (in reasons that I still don’t know what)

> When he came out of the pod, he no longer feels any emotions.

> Lance asked “what is the used of emotions? You don’t need it in war.”

tylerl_hoechlin: In honor of the very last episode of #TeenWolf airing tonight, here’s one of the oldest photos on my phone from our very first event as a cast, February 2011. I love these people and all the ones that aren’t in this photo that made this show, and more importantly my life, what is has been for the last 7 years. Love you all. Hope you enjoy(ed) the show.

Okay so, I tried to keep this private last night, because I know that in no way this represents the whole of DEH stans, but I need to say this.

Last night I had the honor of seeing Dave Malloy as Pierre in Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812. Personally, it is my favorite show of the season, and the ticket was an end of term present to myself. (If you want a review of the show message me it was fantastic.)

Now, Dear Evan Hansen is in the theatre directly next to TGC. Normally that wouldn’t be an issue, but when I came out to the stage door last night, there was a handful of DEH fans who were being extremely rude and pushy to those of us standing in line for TGC. One girl wouldn’t stop getting in peoples faces talking about how TGC was going to lose, and the whole group (around 5 people from what I could see) was yelling and shouting for the 15 minutes I stood in line (I had paintings to drop off with the doorman.)

This is not what love of theatre is about. Tearing down another show, or even fans of other shows, is not the spirit of theatre. DEH is ABOUT the perils of bullying and ostracization, and to see this group of people acting so horribly made me incredibly angry.

Theatre is supposed to be a family, this is a small community, and if you are going to thrive off of being hurtful, hateful, and cruel, you don’t belong anywhere near it.

last call (for now) for the trans portrait gallery!

my name is eli, and for the past six months i’ve been working on a project called the “trans portrait gallery.” essentially, i am drawing portraits of a wide range of trans people and compiling their stories to display in an online and easily accessible gallery.

 i love art and i wanted to blend my love of it with activism, so the project aims to create a sense of empathy and humanization for the trans experience through visual stimuli, and to provide a visual contrast to the fact that trans people, most often trans women, are portrayed as a caricature or the butt of a joke. i also want to show that we come from every background and situation– country, age, race, socioeconomic class, religion, sexual orientation, ability, etc.– and explore how these factors interact with our lives and our gender identities.

the response to this project so far has been amazing, and i’ve felt so honored to draw everyone’s portraits and be privy to their stories. i’m hoping to have the first iteration of the website up in the next few weeks! however, i’d still like to have more portraits, and in an effort to streamline the process, i’m sending out one last call:

if you’re transgender or nonbinary and willing to have your portrait drawn and posted on the trans portrait gallery, along with excerpts from answers to a few interview questions, i am going to be using the tag #transportraitgallery to draw the last round of portraits! 

here’s how you can go about this:

1. take a straight-on photo of your face

2. answer the following questions. you can be as concise or as longform as you want!

  • How has being transgender/nonbinary interacted with or impacted other facets of your identity (e.g. race, religion, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, etc.)?
  • What have some of your negative experiences related to being transgender/nonbinary been?
  • What have some of your positive experiences related to being transgender/nonbinary been?
  • If you could tell every cisgender person in the world one thing about trans people/the trans experience, what would it be? (You can have more than one answer.)
  • If you could have a phone conversation with your younger self (whatever age(s) you’d like), what would you say to them?
  • What has your experience with your family been like?
  • What else about being transgender/nonbinary would you like to write about?

3. post your photo and responses to the tag “#transportraitgallery” on tumblr! if you feel uncomfortable sharing your photo/responses on your blog, you can also submit your photo/responses to me at genderists.tumblr.com/submit

if i decide to draw your portrait, i will reach out to you to double-check that you’re all right with it. additionally, if you have any questions, feel free to send me a message.

thank you so much for working with me throughout all of this! it would be excellent if people, cis or trans alike, could reblog this to get the word out.

so I guess this is my introduction post :)

I’ve been quite obsessed with the studyblr community for a while now, but I never managed to actually post something of my own. With this said, I have decided to join this community with the motive of being inspired and motivated to study more and harder!

a few things to know:

  • my name dania and I’m 15 years old (soon to be 16!)
  • I am a sophomore in high school
  • I am fluent in English, Arabic, & Spanish (kinda)
  • I love music, photography, and drawing
  • my favorite subjects are geography & science
  • my current focus is to finish high school strong with a high GPA & a good ACT/SAT score
  • My favorite shows are: Full House, Friends, Prison Break, & Breaking Bad
  • I enjoy watching netflix, spending time with family & friends, and going to football games
  • There’s probably other things to know about me, but I’ll keep it here :)

why I made a studyblr:

Ever since about last year, I never really needed to study, I mean school was pretty breezy. What really hit me was this year was in Honors Chemistry I. I never really developed study habits except some basic ones which really aren’t helpful in this specific class. Through this studyblr I want to learn to manage myself and my time when it comes to school work, and be able to develop new study habits! I also want to stop procrastinating and get work done! I hopefully want to share my knowledge with others and maybe even make new friends!

I hope to share my love for studyblrs with others, so make sure to show this post a lot of love!

Headcanon: (Based on this post)

The reason Wonder Woman doesn’t often officiate weddings, is because she’s too well known now and she firmly believes that on their special day, the individuals vowing to spend their lives together should take center stage.

One day though, after working with Kara to save National City, Kara asked Diana for a favor, and that’s how Wonder Woman came to officiate Alex and Maggie’s wedding.

Diana attempts to sneak out before the reception starts, but Kara catches up to her. Extremely grateful, Kara promises that this will be the only time she asks Diana for this kind of favor, and she has every intention of keeping that promise.

A few months, maybe a year later though, Kara contacts Diana again. Her tone is apologetic as she asks for another favor, but when Diana hears what the favor is, she of course says yes.

So Diana officiates Kara and Lena’s wedding. Most of its in English, the vows they exchange are in Kryptonese. Most of the audience can’t understand, but their tender tone of voice and each one’s tearful reaction to the other need no translation.

Clark is the one to walk Kara down the aisle, and give her away at the alter. Alex’s pregnancy is just starting to show, and while she smiles for all the photos, between shots she mutters loving curses at her sister. Getting dressed up for a wedding is bad enough, but of course there was no way Kara was going to let anyone else be her maid of honor. There a four cakes, because they all looked soooo pretty that Kara couldn’t decide, and each one was delicious, Kara defended. And in the end Lena would’ve spent every last cent she had to make this the best day of Kara’s life.

Diana tries to sneak out before the reception kicks off again, only this time she’s stopped by someone else. A pretty brunette catches her eye. Diana can tell by the way she carries herself that this woman is military, even in her beautifully elegant evening gown.

“Who’s that?” Diana asks Kara quietly, during a rare lull in the conversation. She’d caught the brunette’s eye by now, and they seem to each keep catching the other one noticing.

“Oh, that’s my friend, Lucy. C'mon, I’ll introduce you.”

And when they’re introduced, and they shake hands, and their gazes each hold the others’, Diana thinks, ‘great, who’s going to officiate this wedding?’

"So why did I have to punch that guy?"

“So why did I have to punch that guy?”
***************

Being 25 and still desperately single truly and honestly…. well it wasn’t so bad and their were….benefits… and… free time…… independence.. yeah it sucked. Most days Betty Cooper kept busy, she owned and operated Riverdales very own Coopers Veterinary Clinic and her twin niece and nephew kept her on her toes most days. Finding time for a relationships was definitely last on her to do list but still….

Today? Yeah being single sucked. Being maid of honor at one of her best friends weddings was an honor and she was of course all too happy to do it, but now that the rehearsals were over and the favors were finished.. she felt…. lonely. Watching the couple glide across the dance floor, Cheryl wrapped up in Toni’s arms, both wearing beautiful hand made wedding gowns was enough to make her cry and of course there was him, handsome as ever but grown, Matured,
No more beanie and no more leather jacket.

“Hey hot stuff.” The unfamiliar rumble of the older man at her side shook her out of her memories. Taking an uncomfortable step to the left Betty smiled cordially, making to walk away, unfortunately she was too slow and the man had her forearm gripped in his dirty hands.

“Let go of me.” She grit out, attempting to tug her arm free.

“Just dance with me gorgeous, I’ll show you a good time.” He moved closer and for a split second she could see his lips moving toward last hers, his teeth horribly mangled.

It ended as soon as it started, one second he was grabbing her the next he was laid out on the floor.

“She said let go.” The dark haired man spoke dangerously low, shaking his hand out and staring down at the old man. Jughead jones had just knocked out a complete stranger in order to defend her honor. Somethings never change.

People began gathering at the scene, betty tugged Jughead by the arm, his suit jacket smooth under her fingers as she led them into the hallway.

It was silent for a moment before Betty spoke

“Thankyou….for that” She whispered, avoiding his eyes and grabbing his hand to inspect it for injuries.

“Anytime.” He started “so tell me why I had to punch that guy? Where’s your husband?” Jughead cleared his throat, eyes ducking when her head shot up, an amused smile on her lips.

“My husband is nonexistent” she giggled “or maybe he’s somewhere in the world, all I know is he most definitely isn’t around to defend my honor.” Betty snorted, dropping Jugheads hand and stepping back “anyway, thanks again. It was good too see you. I better get back in there.”

She was halfway to the door when his voice stopped her

“I miss you. Everyday I miss you.” He whispered, eyes burning into the back of her head.

Betty swallowed, still staring at the door
“You left me remember? Without telling me where you were going, when you were going. It’s been five years Jughead.”

Suddenly he was by her side
“I had to go, I’m sorry but I couldn’t tell you, I was in so deep with the Serpents, I just… I had to get out.. if they found out you knew where I was you’d be in danger I couldn’t risk that, I’m so sorry. I came back two years ago I came back. But… you had just opened the clinic and you were doing so well I didn’t want… I didn’t want to ruin that for you but…” Jughead trailed off.

Betty’s eyes blazed into his
“But What Jughead?” She whispered

He didn’t hesitate this time, “But I love you. There’s never been anyone else and I know you still love me. I can feel it, I know you can too.” His hands held hers and placed them over his heart “it’s always been you. It will always be you, seeing you here today, I can’t lose you again. I can’t take that.” He plead, tears gathering around the corners of his tired blue eyes.

Taking a deep shuddering breathe, betty closed her eyes, the soft voice of Frank Sinatra poured out from inside the venue and into the hall.

“We can… let’s just dance for now Okay? Just for now..” She whispered, reaching for his hand.
It was a start and he would never say no to anything Betty Cooper ever asked him again.

Taking her hand in his he held her close to his body
“Okay. A dance. A dance is good.”

anonymous asked:

About Keith and Lance, am I the only one with that huge feeling that S3 was just a big slow burn fanfic and now S4 is just... back to the (heterosexual) normality ? I mean... S4 seem SO ooc if you take s3 for example! I'm... Disappointed. Where is the development... Why ruin everything in less than an episode?

What you have to consider is that Keith wasn’t IN season 4. Everyone reacted to him leaving the same way. It’s not that other people reacted and Lance didn’t, it’s that…they all felt the same. While it would have been nice for some Klance interaction, this isn’t negating their relationship from season 3, it’s just…putting it on hold.

I do understand how you feel, though. But what we should keep in mind (in terms of relationship development; plot-wise, I don’t see how this could have worked) is that season 4 was originally part of season 3. We would have seen, in September, both seasons 3 and 4 in one go, and we’d all be having our minds blown at the Klance interaction in the first 7 episodes, and it would be great. By splitting up the season, it feels extremely jarring and like all the development is gone, when in actuality, it’s just focusing on other, plot-related things. (Now, I think those plot-related things are poorly written, but that’s a whole different story.)

The core relationships that developed in seasons 3 and 4, or the original season 3, were Lance and Keith, and Lance and Allura. We also got two scenes of one-on-one interaction between Keith and Allura (one in the alternate reality episode, and one in ‘Code of Honor’). I’m obviously not including sibling dynamics in this, as I’m just focusing on the romantic aspect, and I’m going to talk about the eps as if it was one long season, because that was the original intention. Also, please note that this is all my personal opinion, and could totally be interpreted differently – I don’t include character interaction in why I think ships will be canon, and none of this is part of that. These are just my own thoughts on the different possible romantic dynamics.

So, the one that lasted all thirteen episodes was Lance and Allura. He’s completely stopped flirting with her, and only shows her kindness and support. However, we see that he’s still projecting this idea of having a crush on her, what with his interaction with Matt. But…he’s not putting this into practice. He’s going through the motions of ‘I want Allura’ while not actually doing all the things he associates with wanting somebody. Food for thought. All this could definitely be interpreted as him maturing and actually developing genuine feelings for her (which I, personally, am super open to), but I must stress, yet again, the quote about his potential romantic interest being not what he’s looking for, but what he needs. Even if he’s developed feelings for her, she’s exactly what he’s looking for, which automatically means she’s not his true love. I really don’t think he’ll end up with her, much as I’d be perfectly happy with it.

The dynamic that lasted almost the whole season was Lance and Keith – for the most part, the animosity between the two has vanished, and they have become much closer. You all know how their exchanges went in the first seven episodes, so I won’t talk about that. In Keith’s one episode of interaction with the rest of the team during “season 4″, they stood extremely close to each other, and Lance expressed frustration at Keith not wanting to come do the show with them. This was a different argument than the kind they got into in seasons 1 and 2; Lance is completely in the right. So, this is just like their other season 3 arguments. In addition to this interaction, Lance complained to Allura about Keith not being there, Allura tried to calm him, and Lance replied with, “I don’t know why I bother.” (paraphrased - it might have been “I don’t know why I try.”) This was interesting phrasing, in my opinion, and he reminded me of one person in a relationship angry at their significant other for flaking on an event that was important to them. I don’t know, that’s just what it made ME think of.

There wasn’t any other Klance interaction, but there also wasn’t any other Keith interaction. The only other people he talked to of note were Shiro – who he thinks of as a brother – and Allura, in a scene where he told her not to lecture him. But Keith’s feelings have never been what I focus on in relation to potential Klance canonization, because I don’t really know how he feels. For me, Lance is the one that we can really draw a lot of stuff from, so even if Keith gets with Allura (which, in my opinion, is a ship that hasn’t been NEARLY as developed as Klance or All/urance), that doesn’t mean Lance still can’t fall in love with him. In fact, if Ka/llura happens, it might be what prompts Lance into realizing that he likes Keith, and would be a nice plot twist from the expected love triangle (the two of them fighting over Allura). I know that dreaded love triangle has been weighing on people’s minds, but I truly think that if it happens, they’re going to subvert it and make Keith the center of it, rather than Allura. In fact, when they all jumped in for the group hug, Allura, Keith, and Lance’s heads made a LITERAL triangle, with Keith in the center and Allura and Lance on either side. Not that that means anything, I just thought it was interesting.

Anyway, totally going off on a tangent here. In essence, when you think of the relationship progression between all of the characters, consider this as one big season, which was the original intention. The only reason we didn’t get more interaction was because a), the season was split, and b), because Keith was written out of the show.

Surprise Proposal

A/N: sorry this took so long. i had/still have writer’s block :/

Pairing: Reader x Justin Bieber 

Request: ’omg do one where Y/n is also a singer and she’s on tour and Justin suprises her on stage and proposes. Love youuu 💜‘ 

Warnings: none

{Y/N} POV

“So I just want to say a quick thank you to every single one of you who has come out to all the shows. This would not have been possible without you. This has honestly been a dream. So, it honor of this being the last show, why don’t we just do a Q&A because I’m sure you’re all dying to know what I’m up to.”

The entire crowd got much louder than before and I looked about for someone to chose. “Okay, why don’t we go with the girl in the hot pink sweater in the front. What’s your question?”

Okay, I just want to say that I love you so much but, anyways, my question is why didn’t Justin come on tour with you?”

“Well, you guys know Justin, he’s a busy guy! Trust me, he’s working very hard on what he was coming. Next question." 

I came here prepared with an entire list of questions but, how did you and Justin meet? You guys never really talked about it so now is the perfect time.“ 

"As cliché as it sounds, we met actually on vacation. I was visiting family up in Canada and I happened to run into him. From there, we just clicked." 

Okay, hey {Y/N}, my question is how did you know singing was your passion?“ 

"It sort of started when I was in middle school chorus and my teacher told me I had an insane voice. After that, singing just blew up for me. I’ve always liked singing since I was a child." 

I know you two are young but, what’s your ideal proposal? Like where and how would you want it?“ The crowd ooo'ed in what I presumed was a good way, more like scandalous. 

"My ideal proposal would be maybe somewhere tropical, like the Bahamas or something like that. It would be really cute if it was during dinner or something. I’m just a hopeless romantic so, whatever he has planned I’ll go with." 

"How would you like if you got proposed to right now?” I froze in my seat when I heard the voice. Wait a minute, I knew that voice. The crowd screamed and music began playing in the background. I turned around to see who was coming out on the stage. To my not-so surprise, it was Justin.

“Oh my god, wow.“ I said to myself, well, aloud. I was in shock because I wasn’t expecting Justin to show up. He was literally half way across the world! I got up to hug him and rested my head on his shoulder. I couldn’t help but start crying because I haven’t seen him for so long.

“Okay {Y/N}, I know this isn’t your ideal proposal, which I do apologize but,will you marry me?” Justin questioned. The crowd got silent which was sort of surprising.

“Yes. I’ll marry you, even though this isn’t my ideal proposal.” Justin slipped the ring on my finger and the crowd applauded and congratulated us. We both bid farewell to the crowd and headed backstage. 

“I almost forgot, I heard what you said about the proposal so, last minute, I booked us tickets to the Bahamas. I hope you don’t mind,” he spoke up. I looked over at him with a loss for words. “We are going to have so much fun.”

That was exactly what we were going to do.

anonymous asked:

hi! could you do a harry imagine where he comes backstage after the gig with stevie and hes all happy but he starts crying (in a cool way) because he loves her sm and you comfort him, thank you!💖💖

Hi! So in honor of Stevie’s birthday, I just had to write and post this one. I hope you like it :) x.


Leather and Lace

I’d been trying to hold it together for the last twenty minutes. The show was over, the crowd for the most part was dispersing and leaving the Troubadour, with a few clusters of fans here and there chatting. The music was still ringing in my ears, the feedback from the guitar now long gone yet still managing to vibrate and shake throughout my body. I stood frozen in my spot on the balcony where I’d sat next to James to watch Harry. The stage was now empty, the spotlights now making it seem more like a distant memory, or a time capsule from a completely different era - one that I’d seen in old magazines from decades ago.

I couldn’t believe what I’d just witnessed. Harry had just sung with Stevie Nicks. Stevie fucking Nicks! To say I was a fan of hers would be an understatement. Stevie was my idol. My queen. The reason I’d wanted to be a musician since I was twelve.

I hadn’t known she would be there. Harry hadn’t told me. Whether it was because he wanted it to be a surprise, or because he was afraid I would freak out and be nervous for him, therefore making him all the more nervous, I didn’t know. But maybe it was a little of both.

“Babe, let’s go! I have to catch you up on all the scary movies you missed while you were trying to get Watney’s ass off of Mars!” Y/N shouted to Chris. She had been dating him before he went off into space. They had been together for almost four years now and every one of his team members were waiting for him to pop the question. Martinez was the one pestering him the most.

Chris had a plan to propose and he was not going to let any of his team members ruin it. He had bought the ring the minute he landed back on earth. He had to ask Commander Lewis and Beth to help him. He was still a poor clueless space boy after all.

After what felt like days of visiting high-end jewelry stores and deleting all the pictures he took to send to his helpers, he finally found the perfect ring. It reminded him of her eyes. It sparkled in the sunlight and he could notice it in the darkness. He was still nervous to ask her. She had said several times that he was her one and only.

She said their love would last forever like Noah and Allie`s. The Notebook was her favorite movie of all time. They watched it together on their first date and Y/N balled her eyes. After that night, he knew he would be with her forever. She looked beautiful even when she cried.

Tonight was the night. He was going to propose to Y/N and he would have the honor of calling her his wife. She had the intention of showing him all the scary movies that came out while he was away, but he had a different idea.

While Y/N prepared the popcorn and sweets, Chris quickly changed out the DVD and put on “The Notebook.” He felt like it was the perfect way he could propose. It symbolized their relationship coming full circle. Through all the ups and downs they stayed strong, just like Noah and Allie. He was getting emotional just thinking about it. He didn’t even notice Y/N sit down next to him.

“Babe? Helloooo? Chris?” she starting waving her hand in front of his face “I asked you to play it. C’mon there is a lot to catch up on.”

He wanted to wait to the end of the movie, he really did, but looking at her now he saw that goofy smile and enthusiasm for something that would just give her nightmares. He knew he could just cuddle her even more after the movies and he was okay with it. Before he could stop himself he slowly lowered himself off the sofa and onto one knee in front of her.

“Y/N Y/L/N, you are the absolute love of my life. You listen to me rant about the constellations and black holes and things you probably don’t understand, but you put up with it. You put up with me. I know our relationship hasn’t been the easiest one or the most traditional. I have been gone for a lot of it but you still stood by me. You were faithful and you loved me. You understand me and for that I will always come back to you. Whether I am just at the grocery store or on another planet, I will always come back to you. Please do me the honor of becoming me Wife?”

She was frozen. The ring was gorgeous. He knew her so well, but she also knew he had help. He couldn’t have been able to pick out a ring without a woman’s help. She loved him, but the boy had no inkling of an idea about rings.

She was crying and couldn’t speak. All she could do was nod her head at a furious pace. Chris let out a sound that was a mixture of a sigh and a laugh. With shaky hands, he pulled the ring out of the velvet box and slowly slide it on her finger. He picked her up and spun her around. He let her down and they shared a passionate kiss. Y/N started giggling.

“You had the notebook in the DVD player, didn’t you?”

Yup. They were definitely made for each other.

Writing Tips #8: Character Foils

Greetings, fellow writers, and welcome back! Today we’ll be covering one of my favorite aspects of writing: character foils.

Dictionary.com defines a “foil” as “a person or thing that gives contrast to another.” (Dictionary.com also defines foil as a very thin sheet of metal, a verb meaning to “prevent the success of” something, and a “flexible four-sided rapier having a blunt point.” But let’s focus on character foils).

Contrast is a critical element of writing, allowing a reader to draw mental lines around characters/settings/situations, as well as creating opportunities for those same readers to draw parallels within a given work. Character foils can be used to create these areas of contrast in their personality, choices, and moral alignment. Some common types of foils include hero/sidekick, mentor/student, leader/enforcer, and so on. There are several broad categories for character foils, including:

1. Diametrically opposed foils: Often the most dramatic type of foil, this variety relies on a pair of characters who are (if you’ll forgive the cliche) as different as night and day. If one character is pure and virtuous, the other has a checkered past and an unreliable moral compass. If one is quiet and studious, the other is brash and impulsive. If one is rich and airheaded, the other is lower-class and clever.

These foils work best with characters who are going to be spending a lot of page-time together, as the contrasts between them will naturally lead to conflict, which is inherently interesting.

Take Locke and Jean from The Lies of Locke Lamora. Locke is a clever street-thief with a flair for the dramatic, and while he can prove a wily opponent in a fight, he’s not a major physical threat. Jean, his closest ally and friend, is book-smart and practical, with a more reliable moral compass and the strength to beat the hell out of pretty much anyone. Their relationship works for two reasons. First, there is always some sort of interpersonal conflict going on between them, often arising from their contrasting personalities. Second, they both have something the other person needs. (Incidentally, those two qualifications are also how you make any fictional romantic relationship work. But that’s another lesson).

Another example of this kind of foil is Kurogane and Fai from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. Kurogane is grumpy, straightforward, and has an ascending moral arc. Fai is cheerful, deceptive, and has a descending moral arc (I mean, they both turn out all right in the end, but for the first two-thirds of the story, their character arcs are trending in reverse). They’re also very visually distinct from each other, with opposing color schemes and builds (not so important in prose, but very important in visual mediums like manga). There’s a reason most of the TRC fandom ships these two, and it has a lot to do with their status as foils to each other.

2. Single-trait contrast foils: This type of foil is a little different, in that the characters involved tend to be quite similar, but differ in one story-critical way. These foils are typically used in a  much more limited way than diametrically opposed foils, and can be quite helpful when you want to highlight a particular aspect of a character, rather than their whole personality. Often, this foil consists of one main character and one supporting character.

To use Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle as an example again, we have the characters Syaoran and Ryuuo. They have several traits in common (determination, sincerity, idealism), but they differ in their mannerisms. Syaoran is reserved and formal, while Ryuuo is energetic and casual. Their friendship works because their similarities bring them together, and their differences complement one another. This allows Syaoran, our protagonist, to grow as a character.

For how to use this foil with rivals/antagonists, let’s look at Zuko and Zhao from season one of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Both are antagonists to the main ensemble. Both are arrogant. Both want to capture the Avatar. Where they diverge is in their motivation. Zuko wants to restore his honor so he can return home and gain his father’s acceptance. Zhao wants glory. We, the audience, only begin to see Zuko in a sympathetic light in episode three, when we first see Zuko and Zhao interact with each other. He’s still unquestionably a villain, but in contrasting him with a cruel, glory-seeking adversary, the creators of the show make Zuko appear as the lesser of two evils.

3. Shadow Archetypes: This type of foil is typically used to examine the things a given character dislikes/fears about themselves. Most of the time, when you see a Shadow Archetype, the foil is between the protagonist and one of the antagonists (though rarely the Big Bad). Often, the Shadow Archetype foil involves two characters who have similar histories (birthplace, experiences, abilities), but who ended up in a very different place due to their choices. With this foil, your protagonist is forced to confront an aspect of themselves that they might otherwise ignore or refuse to acknowledge. Let’s look at some examples.

In Avatar: The Last Airbender, Hama acts a Shadow for Katara. Both are from the Southern Water Tribe. Both are powerful waterbenders. Both hold deep grudges against the Fire Nation for taking away their loved ones. When Katara confronts Hama at the end of “The Puppetmaster,” she is essentially confronting a dark mirror of the person she could have become had she allowed bitterness and hatred to consume her. By overcoming Hama, Katara is implicitly making a promise to never let herself fall that far.

Here’s another example, this time from Teen Titans: Slade acts as a Shadow to Robin. Both are ambitious, goal-oriented, and rely heavily on technology and strategy to make up for a lack of superpowers. But Slade is ruthless, willing to cause great harm to others to achieve his goals, while Robin has moral standards which keep him from sinking so low. In confronting him, Robin is forced to acknowledge that they have many similarities. In overcoming him, Robin is able to find peace in himself (Note: with this type of foil, the defeat of the Shadow almost always represents character growth for the good-aligned character).

And those are the three main categories of character foils. Keep in mind that a character can have (or be) a foil to more than one other character at a time, and that the best character foils bring to the surface aspects of each character that might otherwise remain hidden beneath more noticeable traits. As always, thanks for reading, and if you have any questions, feel free to submit a question through my tumblr.
