So there’s literally nothing in Amanda’s vision that wasn’t horrifying, up to and including the yellow flowers. I like the colour yellow a lot more post-Dirk Gently and I resent the idea that I could be taught to hate it. What’s the deal with the yellow flowers, Max. Why is Amanda seeing them. But also.
You’ve got a single smirking Priest turning into a swirling vortex of multiple smaller smirking Priests.
Panto lying peacefully in a bed of leaves and yellow flowers, presumably having a well-deserved nap rather than being actually dead.
A beautifully dishevelled Dirk with his tie hanging loosely around his neck, looking utterly terrified in a Wendimoor room filled with yellow flowers.
This nightmarish hellspawn, which I think looks like Susie but I’m not sure because I’m genuinely terrible at facial recognition. Not sure if anyone else wants to weigh in here?
The Mage dressed in the costume from the mural. Or cosplaying as Terry Pratchett’s Rincewind. One of the two. He’s a Wizzard with two Z’s.
Queen Susie looking batshit insane, hot damn, Lady Macbeth ain’t got nothing on her. Out, damned fucking spot.
And a gang of knights marching under the D sign rather than the K sign, and there’s only one character whose name starts with that letter (yes it could be the Dengdamor family but can you imagine if Dirk ends up with an army of his own and he has no clue what to do with it).
On my bus you never know what’s going to happen
1. There’s a guy who sits in the back, we call him the Candy Man. Nobody knows his real name, I don’t even think the bus driver does. He brings two bags every day. One full of his school supplies, and another full of candy. During the bus ride, he’ll throw candy at random people.
2. Our bus driver is an old, insanely sweet old lady. She’s amazing and I love her to death but she has no backbone. She yells at the kids when they’re wayyyy too crazy, but they yell back and then she gives up. Recently, she’s been throwing paperclips at us.
3. One afternoon, it was really hot and the A/C was broken so everyone was hot and sweaty. One kid yelled at the bus driver to turn off the heat, she said sorry she couldn’t control the sun. The kids reaction was to take off his shirt. Then a ton of other guys followed, and then pants came off. Long story short, by the time I got off the bus, over half of the kids were in their underwear and one boys clothes had been torn off his body by the jerkface kids in the back.
4. One morning, a guy yelled “WHO WANTS BREAKFAST” and everyone cheered so this kid started throwing waffles, pancakes, packets of syrup, handfuls of cereal, cereal bars, packets of oatmeal, water bottles, and bread all over the bus.
5. Every Friday, about 15 kids work together to draw a giant p*nis across all the windows
6. There’s a phone throwing competition once a month where all the kids throw their phones at the bus driver. Whoever wins escapes a write up because all the losers of the competition cover for them.
Her face, Brienne thought. Her face was so strong and handsome, her skin so smooth and soft. “Lady Catelyn?” Tears filled her eyes. “They said… they said that you were dead.” “She is,” said Thoros of Myr. “The Freys slashed her throat from ear to ear. When we found her by the river she was three days dead. Harwin begged me to give her the kiss of life, but it had been too long. I would not do it, so Lord Beric put his lips to hers instead, and the flame of life passed from him to her.”
Summary:Nesta has finally gotten the chance to get away from her small hometown of Prythian, and move to the big city of New York. She knows it won’t be easy to adjust to this new, independent life of hers, especially with an overprotective boyfriend constantly stressing her out. Cassian has lived in the city for a little less than a year, along with the rest of his Inner Circle of friends, and life couldn’t be better. When Nesta moves into the apartment next door though, many things change.
Nesta let out a loud grunt as she dropped the last three boxes out of her arms and onto the spotless wood floors of her new apartment. Feyre and Elain walked through the door and both collapsed on the couch set up by the large windows overlooking the city. Both sisters looked exhausted, and Nesta wiped the sweat from her forehead as she collapsed in between them on the soft cushions.
“Well…” Nesta started, looking around at the open space of the room. It was so much bigger than their small house in Prythian, one in which they all had to share a room. “It will take some getting used to, but I like it.”
Elain smiled and turned behind her to look out the window.
“You have an amazing view,” she murmured, lost in thought as she gazed out over the city.
Nesta had to admit, this apartment truly was incredible. The living room—which they were currently in—had an entire wall covered with floor to ceiling windows, giving the perfect view of New York City. Central park was only 5 blocks away, and having the corner apartment meant that she didn’t have to deal with neighbors on both sides of her.
Meet the Regal Cast of the New Shondaland Drama ‘Still Star-Crossed’
Shakespeare’s classic tearjerker Romeo and Juliet ends with the
deaths of its lusty young lovers—and a note of hope that the grieving
Montagues and Capulets might finally cease their age-old feud. But
there’s no such luck in the sexy, swoony sequel Still Star-Crossed. Created by former Scandal
scribe Heather Mitchell and based on Melinda Taub’s hit young-adult
novel of the same name, this multiethnic, multicultural series dumps the
Bard’s promising conclusion and lets all-out war erupt at Romeo and
Juliet’s funeral. Soon, fair Verona is a city in crisis, yet there’s
still lots of time for marvelously messy romance. “This show is for
everyone who can relate to the giddy, crazy rush of first love,”
Mitchell says. “And who hasn’t watched as a friend falls for the wrong
person? We’ve all been a bystander at that car crash!” Here’s a cheat
sheet of the power players.
Benvolio Montague Played By Wade Briggs Problem Child Romeo’s boozing, whoring cousin should be
avoided at all costs—if, that is, he weren’t so damn endearing.
“Benvolio is the future of the Montagues but wants nothing to do with
their opulence and arrogance,” says Briggs. Benvolio also detests being
forced to wed Juliet’s cousin, Rosaline (Lashana Lynch), to help foster
peace. But, Briggs notes, “he’s secretly attracted to her. The sparks
between them are undeniable.”
Rosaline Capulet Played by Lashana Lynch Maid in Italy Her life was shattered when her parents
died and now—Cinderella style—Rosaline is forced to clean house for her
posh relatives. But that’s not the worst of it. “Being betrothed to
Benvolio is a nightmare,” Lynch says. “She wants Escalus, and in an
ideal world she’d marry him, but if the prince is caught looking at
Rosaline with even a smidgen of love, it would be a royal scandal!”
Prince Escalus Played By Sterling Sulieman So Not Ready “Escalus comes to power at a very dark
moment and is trying his best to end the family war,” Mitchell says of
the naive new ruler of Verona. “But will he sacrifice his personal
happiness for the city he loves?” That would be yes. Escalus reluctantly
arranges the marriage of Benvolio and Rosaline, even though he’s deeply
in love with the bride-to-be.
Princess Isabella Played By Medalion Rahimi Rightful Ruler When the prince of Verona dies, the
crown falls to his son, Escalus (Sterling Sulieman), even though
daughter Isabella is the one with the chops and smarts—and knows so much
more about politics and governance. Played with frustration and fire by
Rahimi (The Catch), Isabella “sadly has to be OK with her lot in life,” Mitchell says. “She is a woman born in the wrong place and wrong time.”
Lord Montague Played By Grant Bowler Power Mad His grandfather tended the Capulets’ sheep. But Montague—in a cold, calculating turn by Bowler (Defiance)—has
scratched his way to the top of Verona society. “Montague has a real
chip on his shoulder,” says Mitchell. “He’s all about wealth and
status.” And now that his beloved son, Romeo, is gone, Pop’s got a big
problem with Benvolio (Wade Briggs), the new heir to the family fortune.
Lord Capulet Played by Anthony Stewart Head Life Sucks “The light went out in Capulet’s world when his daughter, Juliet, died,” says Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer). The poor guy is also stuck in a bad marriage to the insane Lady Capulet (Lost’s
Zuleikha Robinson) and tormented by that upstart Montague. “Capulet is
desperately trying to hold it all together while keeping a secret,” Head
says. “He has huge money troubles.”
