To make up your mind on the purchasing side, go here to Newsarama for Zack Smith’s (interview with Chris, who says about the series,
…the key to the show’s freshness and its longevity and its strength in moving forward is letting people tell stories that are important to them.
They might tell funny stories, silly, lighthearted stories, or deeper, philosophical stories depending on their mood – some storyboard artists were saying they were bringing ideas to the writers to turn into outlines the artists could then turn into storyboards and episodes. There’s that kind of collaboration on the show that makes them invested in making the best show they can make.

Omar Victor Diop: THE STUDIO OF VANITIES Staged Portraits of Africa’s Contemporary Urban Scene.
Artist Statement: These are the fresh faces of the continent’s urban culture. They are black, arabs, caucasian, asian…it doesn’t matter. They are creative and ambitious, but most importantly, they dedicate their everyday lives to making their dreams a reality. In this series, the objective is to portray a generation which endeavours to showcase the African urban universe and its blossoming art production and exchanges.
The intent is to go beyond the strictly asthetic depiction of a beautiful youth… Every portrait is the outcome of a collaboration between the sitter and the photographer.
From Yoda to Ewoks to BB-8, the Star Wars franchise has long had a penchant for cute characters, despite all that unpleasant space genocide going on in the background. That’s why it appeals to multiple generations. Lovable aliens and robots for the kids, cold-blooded extermination of entire civilizations for Mom and Dad. A tendency toward adorableness was in Star Wars’ DNA well before Disney took over the property.

the first time neil does it they’re not even kissing. it’s been a long hard day of routine practices and that night on the court with kevin andrew just gives it his all, going that extra mile despite how exhausted he is, despite how exhausted they all are, leaving even kevin speechless at this out-of-the-blue finesse.
andrew doesn’t think neil should notice, but ofc he does, it’s neil & he has a third eye; one that devours andrew’s every move. anyway as kevin ambles on ahead of them to go change, neil just presses his racquet against andrew’s back, leans in and kisses him on the forehead. he doesn’t say anything then, just shoots him a small smile and jogs on ahead. a show of support, or appreciation.
andrew has stilled, he can still feel the ghost of neil’s lips against his temple. he just stays frozen there for an entire minute bc wtf was that?! did that idiot junkie really just do that?! what does this mean going forward? and why did that feel so good? ??
he’d never been kissed like that before of course, he’d never given such a chaste notion any thought at all, how aloof and alien that gesture was. how strange. a forehead kiss was humble, it asked for nothing in return and andrew simply didn’t understand the mechanics of something that didn’t ask for anything in return.
andrew’s left confused but he shakes it off & moves on bc whatever.
the next week, neil does it again after class, and then again when andrew drives over to pick him up, and then again when they’re kissing. andrew knows that neil knows he shivers everytime.
this once he does it in front of nicky at eden’s twilight and nicky spills about it to roland. “oh, so they’re that far gone, huh?” roland says, smirking suggestively. “head over heels.” nicky agrees, with a grin. “i’d never thought i’d live to see the day.” roland mutters, contemplatively.
ofc, andrew then quietly threatens to rip nicky’s larynx out.
but internally, he thinks head over heels is a dangerously accurate expression. there’s this sense of vertigo he gets from being around neil, and for a boy who fears heights, that’s as troublesome a thought as any.
finally, andrew says, despite the way it makes his skin crawl, that neil needs to quit it bc andrew doesn’t know where to place this notion of respect, this warmth. he isn’t familiar with either.
“no,” neil says, pointedly. when andrew shoots him a deadly look, he just brings andrew’s chin up with his knuckles and smiles. “you like it.”
“you’re still a terrible liar.“
so andrew gets a little defensive and pushes neil off of him, but neil’s having none of it. "okay goalkeeper, for once in your life stop deflecting.”
“i’m not a fan of curveballs.”
“i was a curveball.”
“not a fan of you, either.”
“keep lying like that and you’ll have to change your name to nathanial.”
“194%” then andrew envelopes him in another kiss and this time, when neil presses a kiss to his forehead, he closes his eyes to the gesture and allows himself to face the fall. when he pulls back, he asks, almost tentatively, “what is it?”
neil runs a finger down andrew’s collarbone, “a reminder.” he doesn’t elaborate and andrew doesn’t ask him to, he thinks he understands.
this wasn’t supposed to be this fracking long, ffs goodnight. xD
Watching season three of Buffy is so weird sometimes because whenever I see Angel and Wesley in the same scene, all I can think is, “Ohhh, you boys have no idea what kind of ride you’re in for together.”
