it's been to long really

anonymous asked:

I know this may sound bad, but the Tsar had me chuckling throughout the chapter. he's so bad but the way he says things and how frivolous he acts was just super amusing and an awesome contrast to all of the truths he was dropping on jack (my poor boy). what a great villain you've created. and I absolutely adore that he's sort of a new incarnation of the Nightmare King. when he dropped that line, I flipped my shit. amazing chapter as always, nervous for the next!

I’ve been looking forward to this reveal for so long. Up until now, it’s been so tempting to have the Tsar use some of the lines that Jack used in the mountain, but I held back on it, because I knew a lot of people would suspect that the Tsar obviously had more control of the Darkness than he was letting on, but hoped that wouldn’t lead to most people guessing that he was essentially the Nightmare King in this AU, before it was time. (And that seems to have mostly worked, woo!)

But it’s good being able to sort of have…a lot of previous things that folks have asked me about, make sense now. From why the orb of magic is in the mountain in the first place, why the Darkness tried to steer Jack away from it, why Pitch’s apathy and despair is so profound, especially after the first resistance attempt, and why people don’t just try to ‘randomly assassinate the Tsar anyway’ (I got this question a fair bit), etc. Like, obviously there’s new questions now to be answered, but it was good to tie up the majority of the Tsar-related loose ends.

And on that level it’s just such a satisfying chapter to have out there, because anything from here on in has to be radically different. Everything has to change. It’s like closing one door and opening a totally new one. Part of me is really scared I can’t pull this next part of the story off, but the rest of me is pretty excited to close the ‘Jack learning all about Lune and Pitch’ part of the story to a part that will be a lot more action-packed and adventure focused.

It also means if I want to, I can now start writing Pitch perspective chapters. This was the hold back. Since it’s something Pitch thinks about a fair bit.

For this to work Neil should both be a little shit and have exy balls with him at all times, so it seems pretty reasonable to me

Based on this

One Direction’s Niall Horan Going in Another Direction?

Could the One Direction star be in the process of cutting ties with fellow band members?

Niall Horan (23) posted on his twitter earlier today about his electricity woes, having been without power for the past 24 hours.

With a net worth of £33 million ($47.53 million) as of last year, fans online are wondering if something isn’t wrong in the life of their favourite Irish singer.

“He’s a multi-millionaire, why didn’t he just go stay in a hotel?”, questioned one anonymous fan, “What would he even do at home for 24 hours without power?”

Another fan who was equally dumbfounded said: “If he’s so rich why doesn’t he just pay somebody to fix the problem already?”

But the most interesting comment came from a fan who asked “Why wouldn’t he just stay with some of his equally rich fellow band mate best friends? If my best friend was without power for 24 hours I wouldn’t leave them to stay alone in their own house.” We here at the AAS couldn’t help but wonder the same thing so we reached out to Horan’s band mates for commentary.

Unfortunately, fellow band member Liam Payne (23) who is currently searching for his elusive solo album, to come out “soon”, and is busy answering fans’ questions on twitter could not be reached for commentary. Zayn Malik (24), who may or may not be a former member of the band could also not be reached for commentary as he is currently occupied with being persistently prospective ‘super model’ Gigi Hadid’s boyfriend prop for her Instagram photo ops.

However, we were able to contact Horan’s fellow band members and rich husbands Louis Tomlinson (25) and Harry Styles (23) who refuse to let Horan who has been without power for longer than anybody can remember to stay in their meditation tea house. Styles commented:

“That hat man, he really needs to step up his style if he wants to put one foot inside our meticulously decorated tea house. There’s vintage furniture in there, one of a kind stuff!”

Tomlinson added: “Never really liked the lad. Was always weirdly invested in our relationship. I think it all began when he started to care more about golf than football. More than football!”

“I really think he stalks my husband. He likes all of his pictures moments after they’re posted. Even the fans don’t get to the pictures that fast!” Styles said. “Honestly, I think this power outage was a sign. It’s time to move on. Our relationship involves two people, not three, even though he seems to think otherwise.”

“He calls himself captain, you know? Of our ship. We caught him once dancing and dressed like a sailor. It’s at the point where we really feel like he should keep his distance from us,” Styles explained.

“This past year and a half away from Niall has been a wonderful and much appreciated break, but when I went solo he was right in our faces again and wouldn’t leave me and me social media alone. It was frankly quite disturbing,” Louis added, troubled.

“You know he started a fight with Steve once, saying that he wouldn’t take his place as my biggest fan even over Niall’s dead body. He’s gone mad, I tell you. Did you know he once sent me a truck load of footballs just because I like the sport? We just don’t know what to do. He needs to stop,” Tomlinson said.

“He forgets that I have been and always will be Lou’s biggest fan,” Styles complained, “We had some good times together as a band, we really did, but Niall needs to move on. It’s not 2012 anymore. Somewhere along the way his obsession with us went from cute and endearing to creepy and annoying.”

Who knew it would come out in 2017 that Niall Horan is the cause of the band’s split thanks to a simple tweet about a power outage?
