Every One Direction Solo Single, Ranked (Critic's List)
With the release of Liam Payne's Quavo-featuring "Strip That Down" last Friday (May 19), fans at long last have a complete set of One Direction solo singles: All five members have made their entrance as proper pop solo entities. In honor of these new benchmarks for the solo 1Ders, we've decided to rank all 10 of the solo singles they've collectively released so far.

With the release of Liam Payne’s Quavo-featuring “Strip That Down” last Friday (May 19), fans at long last have a complete set of One Direction solo singles: All five members have made their entrance as proper pop solo entities.

What’s more, “Strip” makes it an even ten singles between the five members – not counting Harry Styles’ promotional quasi-single “Sweet Creature” – with Zaynobviously doing most of the heavy lifting, after his near-year head start on the other four.

In honor of these new benchmarks for the solo 1Ders – including our most recent cover star, the recently minted “grown-ass-man” Niall Horan – we’ve decided to rank all 10 of the solo singles they’ve collectively released so far. Read on below, and look forward to our list certainly ballooning in size (and debatability) in the years to come.

(1/2) A couple weeks ago, I attended a convention panel on North American raptors, wherein several animal ambassadors were on display. (This is a U.S. term for rescued wild animals, usually disabled or otherwise unfit for release into the wild, who tour for educational purposes.) Among the guests of honor was an American Kestrel (a Smol Birb of Prey--about the size of a starling), and the handler's description of its hunting modus operandi was just as you attributed to Aquamarine...

Anonymous said:
(2/2)…except, of course, that the kestrel doesn’t travel in company with two pelicans who fuse into one to carry more prey.

(Referring to this post)

I love that Topaz is a pelican to you! It’s a pretty neat metaphor XD

But yes, despite the roundness of Aquamarine’s general features, there’s something very avian about her.

Aquamarine narrows her eyes a lot, and she cocks her neck whenever she’s trying to understand a situation in front of her. Unless she’s deliberately trying to look menacing, in which case she’ll keep hers head strictly forward-facing, her neck gets around. This is saying a lot considering she has no visible neck

Moreover, she prefers to be a good deal higher than everyone else. And while it’s easy to say she’s over-compensating, a particular character trait she has is certainty of her own infallibility. As was mentioned in her character analysis, she’s young and brash. She’s a lot like Peridot when we first meet her, to a notable degree.

I would say that her preferring to hover so that she’s at everyone else’s eye-level is an act of convenience. It would be so much easier to talk to people if you could face them. I think it’s rather understandable as well, because people who don’t fit the average height mould, in our world, tend to make little changes in order to adjust better, not necessarily tied to self-esteem.

It’s interesting though, that even on the ship, at rest, without real need to converse with Topaz, Aquamarine’s seat is up above everything else going on.

The way the ship is shaped, like a Hershey’s Kiss, is a direct consequence of that. And in a very literal sense, she gets a bird’s eye view of what’s going on.

This is why, in terms of motif, I feel that Aquamarine is more bird than butterfly. She reads like a predator, and even without others’ knowing, she is watching and observing before throwing all her cards in. I think she owes a lot of her success to that.

But when she’s relatively certain of victory, she does throw everything in. When she reminded Topaz, in Stuck Together, of the ramifications of destabilising her, she looks very shaken.

We get the sense that those were all of her cards, and though it was a risk that paid off, she’s not happy that she was put into that situation in the first place. She doesn’t win for the sake of winning, then. This is someone fully aware of everything that happens before the finish line is crossed. And this is why, as with the other SU characters, I feel a case can be made for her coming around the way Peridot did. But, as with Peridot, it has to appeal to her logic and her rationality.

I keep going back to the tennis photo and the mask photo comparison. Obviously, it's S&C. Did they ever say that was them in the mask photo or if it was both of them? I believe they engaged or already married. Too many questions about these two. And, that holiday C went 2 the beach w/ her friends who ended up taking a kick boxing class just like S was supposedly doing somewhere else on some other island. No photo's C w/ her gang / table photo, but photos KW w/ her C friends on the beach.

If you take those two pics side by side it’s pretty obvious that it is the same couple. The heights are spot on and the pose is even the same one. Also there for comparison with the Paris pic there is a pic of her and Sam walking in London together in which shows Cait in the same blazer as the Paris pic a couple of months previous, and the dark hair peeking around the edges of the mask is also indicative of cait. Two pics of the same couple, in my opinion.
Then there is the Christmas holiday from two years ago. At Chris Cait went to NYC with friends and Sam went on a dream kickboxing training camp holiday in Thailand. At New Years Cait was in Costa Rica and Sam was done with kickboxing and off the grid. Then Donal who was in Costa Rica suddenly developed an interest in kickboxing. And both Sam and Cait missed the People’s Choice awards when bad weather in Costa Rica caused flight cancellations.

It’s really only very simple math…

Have you ever met Amelia? If so, how dis it go? Also, have you ever witnessed any interaction between her and D at any event they attend together? Any couple vibes on display, or at least friendship? Or any hostility? Sorry for all the questions...I'm just really curious as to their interaction when no cameras are around.

Hi ya, you must be new. Welcome aboard the crazy train.
Yes. A few times.
I worked for Disney, was hired on the spot. I’m like a brown version of Elle woods. Its hard for most people to dislike me. So I can be civil to everyone.

Yeah. Dear evans is my favorite one to talk about it. Mostly because I was with people that had no clue who they were. (A person we were with walked the carpet). Another person I was with said “man are they getting a divorce. They despise/dislike/hate each other ”. I looked over and said oh thats just d and his beard. More to the story but I don’t post that publicly

hunnypaint  asked:

Hey. (I just changed my url and then back again because it caused problems). I saw the previous couple anons about my drawing and looked back to realize that it did very much resemble your art style. It was an older piece of art, maybe about 4 months ago and I don't think I really knew the unspoken rules of the art community then and I apologize. I have taken the post down just out of courtesy to your art.

no its fine! you didnt have to, i really don’t have any problem, whatever old drawing it was isn’t important anymore cause that was months ago.

Ship Marvel/HP? I'm wicked short, black and silver hair, I'm wicked patriotic and want to join the US military. I am fluent in two languages and learning a third. I am considered to have a genius IQ, but it's not something I brag about. I'm a perfectionist and I've built a wearable suit that lifts 200 lbs on its own. I always dress sharp, I weight slightly more than average but I'm just relatively muscular under a small layer of fluff. I hate immature people but I definitely need an alpha male.

Marvel: I ship you with Bucky!

You’re a power couple that probably met at the gym or in training. Your patriotism reminds him of Steve, and he respects your wish to join and will support you no matter what. He finds it so interesting how you are fluent in two languages and nearly three! If he knows one, you can bet you’ll talk in it to annoy everyone else, and it’s great for privacy. You’ll go weight lifting together and train together. He’d make sure that when you go to sign up, that he’s one of your references, as well as almost every Avenger available. He wants you to achieve your dream, just like he did for Steve. He also loves how smart you are and when you use it in situations. He’d even tease Tony saying you’re smarter than him and he brags about your IQ for you.


Hope you like it!

hello my fellow womens im here to say that just because we are getting a malec bed/sex scene doesnt mean that its an open invitation to start fetishizing them or any other mlm relationship and if i see u discussing top/bottom or any sort of similiar behavior that feeds into the narrative about women fetishizing gay men i will personally be the first one to throw u down the stairs so i know we are better than this and can appreciate to see our lgbt couple finally getting the equal intimacy without being gross thank u for ur time

Closeted Witchling HELP

decided to start a masterpost for young witchlings who sadly must hide their way of life. THIS IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION. RESOURCES AND MORE TIPS WILL BE ADDED LATER

This post is for: 

  • Inexperienced
  • starter witches
  • lgbt friendly
  • including all witchcraft not just wicca
  • urban witches
  • poor witches
  • all genders
  • closeted witches

DEITIES

Whomever your deity may be, you may want to make an altar for them. You may not be able to have a full altar with crystals, proper offerings, candles and such all over it but none of that is truely needed! little things can be made into altars or maybe a dedicated space! As long as your belief and prayers go to your deity thats all that matters! your deity understands! Example: say your deity is Athena! You may not have a statue of her but you can maybe put up a couple of flowers in a cup or a stuffed owl on a shelf and tell her that its for her! the way you do your craft is totally yours! 

-Offerings can be the hard part. My deity is Abnoba, a Celtic goddess from the Black Forest. Her offerings are mostly Black Forest Ham, Black Forest Cake, and Spring water. Now i can usually provide this since we have Black Forest ham but my mom is gonna be kind of concerned about why my table has just ham on it. So, I do other things, like burn a candle, or talk and offer my stuffed wolf for her. Anything can be an offering if you deem it so. 

CANDLES

Okay so not everyone can get access to multiple colorful candles. however for some witches who hide away this can be a completely normal obsession for some people! So maybe youre in the store with your mom, and you can ask if you can have a candle or two.  “What for?” want that room to smell like Honey Suckle Spring of course.

My mom bought me two candles AND an incense burner! My family is normal about essential oils and incense and candles so this was fairly easy for me. 

Ive realized incense can be a bit of a tricky thing, but for me I had this dragon incense burner forever (it sadly doesnt burn incense well) and it takes the cones, but you can find like gift incense cases and such for the sticks! which is a common form of incense. I use cones but thats okay too! Any little thing helps! If you can convince your parent to buy an incense burner and buy some incense your set! if not, thats okay! candles will still work!

Essential Oils. These are used a lot more today than a couple years back. My family uses them for personal reasons and medically for my bro. These are beneficial though! you usually order them online but some stores have them in candle and incense isles. BE CAREFUL THOUGH. some oils are not to consume or for your skin! Most are for aroma therapy which you mic in water and put in a diffuser! (if oils do not agree with your sinuses steam works as well ive read.)

RITUALS

Rituals can be tricky if youre trying to have privacy and parents dont knock coming in or someone comes home early.I would suggest night time or bathroom rituals. for new witches or witches in cramped spaces, i suggest picking a time, get a candle and pray in privacy of a bathroom or late at night as everyone sleeps and leaves you alone. this goes for spells too. 

ITEMS FOR RITUALS AND SPELLS

You may have read a cool spell to do, but you dont have that candle, that herb, that crystal, etc. Thats okay! Spells are easy to wing its the intent and the mindset that works with it! Maybe try easy spells with minimum effort or research and educate on the spells and what they mean. Write a list of items that maybe you can build up over time! this is the thing a lot of witches freak out over, note you dont need these things to be a witch. the belief in magic, and deities or however you do your craft makes you a witch!

CRYSTALS

anyone can be into crystals. Its a common hobby to hav crystals it makes it easy to collect when youre out and about. sadly though these things can be pricey. You can find some places that have packs of different crystals. I found a pack at a native american store in cherokee that had rose quartz, amethyst, white quartz, green quartz, jasper, and blue quartz. You can find Crystals or crystal jewelry at art stores, musem shops, malls, or tourist areas like Cherokee, Tellus Museum, and places that hold spiritual value or geology. Ordering them online is an option to! But any jewelry can be like crytsal usage and hold magick purpose.

HOLIDAYS

Mostly for Wiccan witches, you may celebrate holidays like Yule and such. Problem is the celebration. You probably cant make cakes, or certain things on that day. which is fine! you can always make yourself a decent lunch and in your mind its a celebration. you enjoy that grilled cheese and tomato soup.
Now being dragged into family holidays can be different. but some holidays can easily work with yours! Easter and Spring equinox fall in good alignment with one another! Other religions can be a learning experience to improve your craft or take in values you can adopt.

SPECIAL BOY

BNHA Headcanons part 2

Cuz ive rested and have no impulse control

Todoroki

- I really like the idea of him being like Captain Holt from B99.

- He once stared at a wall for five straight hours. Momo declared he was obviously thinking about life itself. He was actually just wondering what would happen if Pinocchio said “I’m lying.” When he told Izuku later they delved into a very intense conversation that has yet to be settled.

- His worst subject is English. 

- His favorite color is yellow. When asked why, he just shrugs. But in reality its because his mom really liked keeping marigolds in the house when he was younger.

Bakugou

- This boi can style hair. Nobody believes him for a long time when he accidentally made a snide comment about it. Kiri is the only one who bothers to see if its true, and sports some crazy braids for a couple days. The girls are too scared to really ask for him to theirs tho. They don’t realize he actually really likes doing it. It reminds him of sitting around his mom’s hair salon.

- Cannot tell a joke. He’s tried. Three people left crying, and somehow Izuku was pissed. Nobody talks about that day.

- “Sorry for the mean, awful, accurate things I said.”

- Has gotten into a screaming match with both a parrot and a kitten. The Bakusquad no longer takes him to pet stores.

Mina

- “My last fuck just flew out the window, right behind Todo’s.”

- Really likes to ask questions. No one is safe. “Seriously, Shoji, do you have an actual mouth or…?”

- Is that person who would own a tarantula and name it Sweetums. 

- Has drop kicked Mineta roughly seventeen (17) times. She’s going for a world record.

- Has a really nice voice. 

Kaminari

- Has never actually played a pokemon game. Prefers Digimon. Kirishima nearly disowned him.

- Actually really respectful of personal bubbles. Mostly cuz he’s scared he’ll accidentally electrocute you. Hugs are rare. 

- Never actually falls asleep during class. He actually just daydreams about random stuff.

- Irrationally scared of being invited to a pool party. Only swims if he’s the only one in the pool. But he’s not much of a swimmer to begin with.

Uraraka

- Hates texting. Prefers phone calls.

- She discovered her quirk by hitting the coffee table during a fit. They couldn’t figure out how to get it down for three hours. 

- Is actually really fascinated by architecture. 

- Her bucket list consists of going on a bungee jumping spree in which she makes herself levitate halfway down to give the people running it a minor heart attack, and learning how to tango. She cannot dance, so the second thing will take a while.

Tsuyu

- Not a morning person. She’s actually rather terrifying. 

- Is not afraid to deck someone for touching her or her friends without consent. Bakugou witnessed this once, and she has since unknowingly earned his respect. 

- Will cut your sandwiches into fun shapes and goes into mom mode when her friends are sick. Has carried nearly everyone to Recovery Girl for being sick with the flu. 

- Her mom likes to tell her that her hair is like that cuz of a curse that was put on her as a baby. She believes her a little more everyday.

summary: you’ve been lusting after your brother’s best friend for a while now, ever since you met him at a house party, flirting it up a storm as you failed to realise who the other was. That was months ago now and things are still awkward, but you can’t ignore the sexual tension that’s simmers between the two of you…and it keeps getting worse…

MASTERLIST

A/N: I’m not happy with this, so I’m probably taking it down again but here goes a try. 

Word Count: 3,013

”Shawn? Shawn? Are you even listening to me at all?” I muttered, glancing over at Shawn in the passenger seat. 

I turned down John Mayer’s calming voice singing to us through the stereo in the jeep. My eyes fell on Shawn late enough for him to jerk up his head and quickly pop his eyes open. Confused and sleepy. For short moment probably wondering where on earth he was.

People hold hands a lot in LOTR and it’s really nice? It’s not just Frodo and Sam, but I never noticed before this reread. Pippin just now took Gandalf’s hand, and earlier he’d taken I think Bergil’s, a kid (ten, so old enough to walk around without help) he just met, as they walked around the city. So it’s apparently not weird, it’s just a Normal Thing.

Vaguely of relevance as well is the fact that Frodo says “he is very dear to me” of Aragorn after, what, about a fortnight of knowing him. I’m not saying he doesn’t have cause; it was a very crowded and busy fortnight. I too would probably call someone very dear to me if they had saved me from dying from stabbery and guided my friends safely through the wilderness.

It’s just all those ‘my dear Sam’ and ‘I love him’ that he and Sam do, even though they’re a product of extreme circumstances, aren’t even out of line with the culture they live in. They’re still just as meaningful, and I don’t think their power is decreased by that. I just think it’s notable that this isn’t even beyond the bounds of “propriety” for really close friends in high stress situations.

This isn’t where I meant this post to go, but I think this is why this story resonated with me so hard specifically as an aro and why I still don’t ship anything romantically in the Tolkienverse, because the world of Middle Earth is one where loving your close platonic friends and companions to the point of being physically and verbally affectionate is a normal occurrence. It’s just how things are. There’s a lot to be said about the cultural implications of that vs here and now, but I’m not really in a position to say it. But I think even before I knew How I Was, I knew that friends were much more important to me than romance seemed to be. And I feel, with the preponderance of love interests in most adult fiction, like Lord of the Rings was the first Grown Up Story where I saw that aspect of myself reflected.
