its for the good of the queen it really is

The Four Different Types Of Fanfiction
  • The Smut: You're favorite couple is doing the do once again. It could be kinky or vanilla, whatever. You stare at the screen, unblinking, your face showing no emotion. Inside, however, you are screaming.
  • The Orgasm: Fluff. Pure, unadulterated fluff. You convulse with feelings and try to hold back your squeals of delight. The worst to read in public.
  • The Drama Queen: It's a sad story with happy undertones. You tell everyone you cried but really you laughed throughout the torture scenes. Really, it was a good fanfic, it just wasn't... that.
  • ANGST: Your tear tracks don't leave for days after reading this fanfic. You haven't slept in days. You feel for the characters on a personal level. You cry for them weeks after and you still feel depressed when you try to go about your normal daily life when such horribleness just happened to your favorite character.

my thoughts on logan *spoilers*

-LOGAN WAS SO FUCKING GOOD HOLY FUCK
-never in a million years did i think i would cry so many times during an xmen ~related~ film but bitch!!!
-this movie came after me so many times i am shook
-this was such an emotional experience
-it was so packed too i usually go on discount days but i had to see this and wow literally not a seat left open!!!
-first movie from the franchise to be rated r and damn!!! It really needed it, i can’t imagine the film being pg 13
-i really loved the r rating… the gore the cussing the darker and more mature tone was something i didn’t think i needed til i saw this film
-the darker tone made it so much more intense and made logan feel more human
-fight/action scenes were all pure gratuitous fun i enjoyed all of it

“Please Phichit, be serious. Break his heart? Really?”


So I’ve recently been in love with Until my Feet Bleed and Heart Aches by @kazliin and might I just say
h OL Y HOT DAMN ITS SO GOOD 100/10 I CANT WAIT TO SEE HOW IT ENDS

seriously this fic is one of the best and the most well written YOI fics out there.

Me of course, being the drama queen that I am, I have a few ideas on how I think the last two chapters will play through a oh boy howdy I love me some good suffering™. Hey there’s gonna be a happy ending though right?

Right?

(yuuri god dammit just tell this p o or bOY HOW YOU FEEL HIS HEART CAN ONLY TAKE SO M U CH)

this flowers instead of gems thing is so cool… some Thoughts from someone who likes flower symbolism too much

  • if we have a half flower/half human hero, she should be a daisy! they represent innocence, purity and cheerfulness, all of which are great traits for a kid hero. also, daisies are technically weeds but everyone loves them anyway which is Symbolic.
  • you also get big daisies and small daisies. so her mum is a big daisy but she’s a small daisy!
  • i think a rose probably has to be a major character… like maybe i’m going too much off rose quartz from su here but “every rose has its thorns” so making rose betray the group somehow would be cool… i’d make her either a red rose (the obvious), a yellow rose (betrayal and dishonesty!!), or a white rose (when dried this means “sorrow” which is very interesting).
  • nettles can mean life and death, or they can mean protection if you believe shakespeare… so here’s a character that joins the good guys later. probably a warrior-type with that sting.
  • a violet could be good. i’m mostly thinking “gay” here. but a purple violet can also mean daydreaming, so she could be a really cute spacey gay…
  • the flowers are ruled by queen sunflower. or at the very least, sunflowers should be super high-class, just look at em.
  • someone suggested lily of the valleys being high class and like - why not all lilies? orange lilies can mean desire, passion or hatred which would be a really cool villain concept!
  • there’s two unnatural rose colours which have meanings, blue (the impossible, mysteries) and black (death, farewell), both of which could be kinda cool backstory characters. technically black roses do exist irl but they are really fucking rare.
  • lavender means both “devotion” and “distrust”, which… like. hello. that right there is your character arc.
  • okay there’s a flower called bird of paradise and it means things like magnificence and beauty and honestly this is just asking for a character with petal-wings and a whole lotta style.
  • the iris symbolises wisdom and eloquence, which could lend itself well to a mentor-type figure.
  • there’s a flower called lobelia which just straight up means “malevolence” like wow…

like we need a proper tag for this because i have So Many Thoughts

Whatever happens, I don’t want sana and isak to go through a friendship split :( like isak is obviously concerned and kinda fidgety about the fact that mikael is back (sana couldn’t really care about him, but mikael is connected to yousef so…) and he probably thinks sana is focused on even’s ex buddy (bc I doubt he really knows who yousef is) I’m worried we’re gonna see the affects of bakka on not only evak’s relationship, yousef and sana’s relationship, but isak and sana’s friendship too :((

girls make such amazing friends. they are the one friend you can always have a quiet cup of tea with, or the friend who somehow has the most sage advice, the mom friend, the one who texts you to be sure you got home safe, the one who listens actively to your passions and gets excited with you. the one who shows up to your games or shows or parties, the one who holds back your hair, who lets you braid hers. they are the ones who fight for you, who hold you when you come out to them and tell you they understand, who help you ask that girl out, who get drunk with you on a wednesday, who write you poems on your birthday, who stand up to other girls who want to hurt you. sisterhood is so important. it is so precious. they teach us to cut each other down, that our success is dimmed by another girl’s strength. but i love you because we are both queens; empress in our own right. they are worried if we band together; we become bonfire; keep us separate in order to weaken our heat. but when i burn beside you, i am complete.

Im feeling some type of way about how they handled Jaymes Mansfield on the show.  It was a big trash pile on her in every single way. 

I genuinely feel like they took ANY good footage they got of her and just burned it because her entire stint was like… either being the target of pity, condescension, or just downright meanness.  They botched her first workroom entrance on purpose and I’m pretty positive they edited out all of the laughs she got except for that one last pity laugh after she was eliminated.

Its just so unfair because I did my scouting about her and I found out that she sews almost all of her own things with fabric she gets from wal-mart.  She styles her own hair.  She really is funny when shes not being beaten down by a caustic environment where everyone made sure she felt “out of place.” Most of all though, like, shes a realistic queen.  She really represented whats great about hometown drag, that not every queen is a fucking barbie with perfect expensive outfits and huge fanbases.  I really liked her..

No one could seem to appreciate her campiness either.  Not even Raven and Raja could come up with someone good to say on fashion photo ruview and I absolutely loved her promo outfit.  Idk, man.  As much as they love to have their heart to heart moments and claim that queens are caring and accepting and that they’re all part of a sisterhood… idk.. it seemed like every single thing that has to do with drag race was out to snuff her out.  Its almost like they let her on the show just so they COULD do that.

queen-of-parenthesis  asked:

So I want to get into clipping. but idk how I'd go at it. Is there a certain order I should to the songs in or something you'd recommend?

GOOD ASK!! it really depends on what kind of stuff you’re into, but I think their latest album Splendor & Misery is a good place to start (its my fave album by them so far). Here’s the synopsis:

like…………..i love them

OK SO u should listen to these songs in the order they appear on the album bc its a narrative (u should do that for all of their albums tbh.. im not like a Music Purist but if the band puts their tracks in a certain order they did it for a reason….also use headphones) here is the full album on youtube, tracklist in the description, which is nice bc it preserves the smooth transitions between the songs unlike spotify or bandcamp

If you like Splendor & Misery they have 3 other albums u can listen to:

Wriggle came out last summer, its.. it sounds like the album cover, basically. like a few of these songs legit fluster me to the point where i get embarrassed listening to them around other people LMAO.. anyway its a great lil EP that gets bonus points in my brain bc Cakes da Killa and Antwon have verses on it and i love them both

CLPPNG is from 2014, its the first album i heard by them & it is very close to my heart. I think Get Up is the song that made me a clipping fan, but tbh i like every track on this album save one. Fun Fact the title doesnt have i’s bc daveed didnt write any of it in first person which is pretty cool

Midcity is their first album its rad as shit and harsher/more ear-bleedy than their other ones and i just remembered as i typed that that THIS is actually the first album i heard by them, i listened to it when it first came out and didnt like it because my music taste in 2013 was like, sad indie men in the woods. anyway, get money

Why you should check ‘em out: Reading Sam’s work is quite often like recreating John Hurt’s chest busting scene in Alien but with more smiling and then begging for more. Sam knows how to build an emotional, beautiful story that’s complex and stunning in so many different ways and meanings…and then thrust her hand into your chest and rip out your heart, crush it and then put it back and you’ll thank her for the privilege. Joking aside Sam is one of the best and I wholly recommend you add her to your must read list if she isn’t already on there.

@lecrit / Lecrit 

Why you should check ‘em out: Similar to the above individual Lu or Satan as they’re aptly named approaches writing in a way that leaves us all crying and clinging to their ankles begging for more. Lu’s work is heartbreaking and beautiful in equal measure and really digs into certain emotions and leaves you feeling a little raw afterwards. They’ve got some amazing stories on the go that balance the emotional suffering with some humour.

@my-nameless-bliss / Nameless_Bliss

Why you should check ‘em out: Other than promoting the truth, Alec really does deserve nice things, they are smashing the gender roles and stereotypes with some emotional and epically beautiful stories. Seriously you will get emotionally involved in these stories so much because they’re written so god damn beautifully and so sweetly that it’s hard not to get hit right in the chest with the emotional upheaval and acceptance that Alec goes through, not to mention the understanding of both Magnus and Alec’s character that they seem to have. Every detail is stunning and well thought out and a joy to read.

Why you should check ‘em out: Regularly murder me, every time I think it’s safe to come back to life BAM dead again!  They write beautiful snapshots into the Malec life that are just amazing and so emotionally charged, it’s brilliant stuff.

Why you should check ‘em out: All though a more artistic queen, when she does turn her hand to stories she really nails it.

@theonetruenorth / Theonetruenorth

Arrow 5x19 “Dangerous Liaisons” Review: Girls Rule The World

Oh my goodness. This was such a good episode.

The fandom touted this episode as SMOAK VS ARROW—but it was more like Team Smoak (Helix) vs. Lyla (ARGUS) with Team Arrow assisting. And really this episode was about the women. Felicity and Lyla. Meanwhile their rather befuddled hubbies watched on and wondered if this was going to ruin any future chance of dinner parties once Digg’s OTP gets its shit together. (Digg is still waiting to try Oliver’s cordon bleu.)

Felicity’s involvement with Helix came to a head in this episode. We all knew it was coming; even if her storyline with Helix was rather slow going at the start. I knew it was too good to last and too good to be true. Frankly, I’ve enjoyed watching Felicity take control over how she wants to be a vigilante if only because it’s the kind of experience that will reaffirm for her the kind she knows she should be. For me this experience is much more about Felicity exploring herself than just a means for Oliver and Felicity to mend fences.

I am absolutely not here for anyone bad mouthing Felicity Smoak for what she did with Helix. There isn’t a character on this show that hasn’t done things equally as bad or worse. I still find a way to love Oliver (when he’s really Oliver) and Diggle. I root for Thea. I don’t need Felicity to be perfect—though to me she’s perfect the way she is—to love her. So if you’re of the mind that Felicity was wrong or out of line then please do us both a favor and click the X on the tab.

I know that many of us are all eagerly anticipating the reunion of Olicity and we definitely are on that path and next week will be even more instrumental to that. But what this episode did, which we’ve sorely been lacking for over 19 episodes, is it had them communicating. Those trust issues were brought back to light in this episode.

Olicity and Dyla

Felicity is convinced that she needs to do whatever it takes to get the tech from Helix that will finally pinpoint Adrian Chase so that he can be thrown in jail. Alena tells her that the never heard of before now Cayden James has the capability of tracking someone’s heartbeat to their location. Cayden James was imprisoned by ARGUS eight months ago and has been held in a Black Site ever since. Alena wants to break the founder of Helix out of his prison.

Felicity attempts to convince Lyla to release Cayden in exchange for the tech. Lyla won’t budge because Alena killed an ARGUS agent (supposedly an accident) to get one of the necessary keys to free Cayden James. Not to mention another agent was nearly killed too. Also because she says this mysterious man is bad news—and even compares him to a loose nuke. I personally didn’t think it was a coincidence that a nuclear weapon was mentioned. There are a lot of implications with that for Felicity—Havenrock and something that she worked to stop with her estranged father. (Who I really think might be Cayden James.)

That showdown in the Bunker was a really strong scene and went a long way towards Felicity’s motivations. In many ways Diggle and Oliver both have held Felicity to a higher standard than themselves. They said from the beginning they were going to protect “this girl” and I think in part that meant shielding her from making questionable choices. They’d been through real ugliness in the world; they didn’t want to expose her to that.

Except that she was faced with it anyway—in fact she came already prepackaged with a history of pain. But since S1 she’s been through four terrorist attacks; she’s been shot twice; paralyzed; gassed twice; kidnapped multiple times and lost several people she cares for. Meanwhile she fell in love and then lost the love of her life. For the last four years, Felicity has mainly been trying to make the right choices—and trying to lead her guys to those choices too. But she also respected that she couldn’t (for the most part) make the choices for them.

Her goodness and faith in Oliver allowed him to believe there was still goodness in him. She helped him to harness his light. But there’s been little reciprocation here and that’s the journey in 5x19 and 5x20. Felicity was making all the right choices and the pain kept coming, for her and her loved ones. It’s easy to see why she’d start to think that the only way to get something done was by taking the moral shortcuts.

In the Bunker when Felicity proclaims that they have no right to not let her make dubious moral choices. They are a team—OTA. And she wants to be considered equal in all parts. They’ve left her out of some of the darker parts of vigilantism but it has done little to shield her from the overall consequence and suffering that comes with it. She’s tired of watching her friends take that burden alone. Especially when, as she sees it, if she makes those choices they lead to results.

Felicity tells Oliver (and Lyla) that they have absolutely zero ground to stand on for telling her she’s out of line. She’s not wrong. Frankly, Diggle doesn’t have much of a right either. It was only a handful of weeks ago that he was torturing a man in Russia. Not to mention he shot his brother. So for me, it was all rather hypocritical for anyone to judge Felicity for her association with Helix.

Keep reading

suicide squad as i would have written it:

cut out the enchantress entirely. totally unnecessary. we can keep rick flag. actually for the squad we should only have: harley quinn, deadshot, killer croc, captain boomerang, and el diablo. so the original setup is fine. whatever. but the villain shouldn’t be enchantress and her weird brother, but it should be: the joker

i can already hear you all groaning. remove jared leto from the equation for a moment, and bear with me. the joker cant find harley. the joker loves harley. not as person loves a person, but as a megalomaniac loves their most prizes possession. harley is his queen, the best thing he’s ever stole. he won’t let her be taken from him. so he starts just – killing people, bombing shit. he can’t find her and he’s furious. he demands her back, says he’ll destroy this whole damn world if they don’t give her back. because amanda waller is INSANE she sends the squad after him.

so rick flag has been given the leash to people he REALLY DOESN’T WANT TO HAVE LEASH FOR. but what’s to make us give a fuck about this man now that his lady love isn’t thrown up all in this mess? this is where diablo comes in.

so in the movie they have diablo be this peaceful reformed whatever. yawn. i don’t want him to be ghandi. i want him to be SUICIDAL. i want him to try killing himself day after day, i want that fireproof room there because he spends hours trying to burn himself to death, but always failing, because fire won’t be the thing that kills him. he hates himself, hate what he’s done, he killed his wife and children. there’s no coming back for him.

so the threat of death won’t keep him in line, not like it will with the others. so that’s why amanda calls in rick. rick flag, not the enchantress’s lover, but rick flag – el diablo’s brother in law. rick says you’re going to save the whole goddamn world and follow my orders, because you OWE ME. you killed my sister and my niece and my nephew, and you don’t get to just die and join them, you asshole. you have to do your penance first. and diablo agrees.

note: harley and deadshot hate diablo. there’s bad people, and then there’s bad people. and it doesn’t really matter that he didn’t mean it, he killed his wife and kids. deadshot cares about nothing in this world more than his daughter, and all harley wants is to settle down and have a family. both deadshot and harley are itching to put a bullet in this guy, and rick finds himself in the unenviable position of having to protect the superpowered asshole who killed his sister from the other assholes he’s in charge of.

so harley and deadshot become fast friends, just like in the movie. and boomerang is an asshole, but he likes a good time, he likes an adventure. this is fun. so they all go after the joker, and you bet your ass that everyone is calling amanda waller ten kinds of idiot for sending harley in after the joker. but they’ve all  got explosives in their neck, and if they don’t follow orders they die. so harley is playing this delicate game of at least giving the appearance of following orders while the joker does a lot of background shit to get her off her leash so she can come home. so in the meanwhile they’re fighting their way through joker’s traps and his goons, which is especially hilarious because at least twice they catch sight of harley and either give up or just run away screaming. hey, just like amanda says: harley does everything the joker does, but backwards and in high heels. the last thing anyone in joker’s crew (her crew) wants to do is fight her. so they run. and this goes like it does, boomerang blowing shit up and crock being silent, and diablo quietly doing as he’s told while harley and deadshot keep on helping each other out and having each other’s backs. (side note: croc and diablo develop a broship. boomerang remains the comic relief and is treated as a beloved if rabid dog)

so deadshot choosing not to kill harley was nice and all. but how about:

joker gets rid of all the kill switches, just because its easier to take them all out than one. he comes to get harley, who’s so fucking down to go. but she looks at deadshot with some regret, because it’s been so long since she’s had a real friend. this is a mistake. the joker notices and is instantly jealous, instantly furious. harley’s appeal is that she loves him more than anything else, to the exclusion of everything and everyone. so he turns the tables, points a gun a deadshot and tells harley to shoot him. she doesn’t want to, tries to convince him to let it go. but he won’t, says if she doesn’t kill deadshot, he will, and then he’ll kill her. if she loves him, she’ll kill deadshot. and deadshot gets harley, he understands her. so he says it’s okay, he wasn’t that keen to returning to prison anyway. “just take care of her for me, okay?” he says, not being specific, but she knows. he’s saying to take care of his daughter, he’s willing to die by her own hand so she can be with the man she loves and after that he’s still trusting her with his kid, the person he loves most in the world. and deadshot is her friend, but joker is her everything. so she picks up her gun and pulls the trigger and –

– shoots the joker dead.

and she’s sobbing and tries to point the gun on herself, because she just killed the love her life, but deadshot stops her and saves her, and he’s shocked and the squad is shocked and amanda waller is fucking floored. harley quinn just killed the joker. batman owes her a fucking fruit basket. and harley says “you’re not going back to prison” and pushes deadshot in to the getaway helicopter, and smooths back joker’s hair and reaches for his gun to point it at herself again but deadshot yells her name and so she leaves it all behind and gets in the chopper.

and harley quinn and deadshot escape. they don’t go far, they stay in gothem. joker’s crew was her crew too, and none of them skip a beat when she retakes her mantel, deadshot at her side. they all knew how her and the joker were, and she killed him. if any of them were willing to cross her before, they aren’t now. and deadshot straight up kidnaps his daughter from her abusive mother, sends her to the best schools and lives in a nice house with her. and during the day he’s still an assassin, still kills on command – harley’s command, specifically. and harley comes to the house, and deadshot’s daughter loves her, and harley gets what she wanted, if not who she thought she wanted it with: a life of crime and a family to come home to, the two things she loves. harley and deadshot rule the streets their way, and no one’s really sure if they’re good guys or bad guys or what. and no one stops them. because harley quinn killed the joker, and for the good guys it’s out of a sense of gratefulness and for the bad guys its from a sense of wariness, because now they know, or think they know.

god help anyone who disrespects the queen.

(then they break everyone else out and splash suicide squad across the city, because they’re not the good guys, but to quote one of my favorite shows: sometimes bad guys are the only good guys you get)

anyways i know this is UnrealisticTM but i am like. always and eternally laughing abt the concept of the entire extended family slowly coming to learn about the Family Treason over the years? like already in canon the fact that aramis SLEPT with the QUEEN is like the worst-kept most dangerous secret in france for majority of the show, so why not expand that and for good measure make it even more comedically inclined?

i just keep thinking like esp now that hes first minister and him and anne get to RAISE THEIR KID TOGETHER AND LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER, more and more people harbor suspicions abt it bc like. they have very little chill. but ofc anne is smart enough to surround herself only with people she trusts, and, also, shes just a really lit queen regent so most people like her, and as such its not nearly as big of a problem as it might have once been. instead of stress, it just causes general hilarity? like? imagine sylvie and elodie finding out? one day athos is like ‘okay if u are part of this family i should probably tell you this’ and sylvies like what u mean that the king is aramis’s kid and athos nearly passes out right there before sylvie’s like ‘yeah that was pretty obvious but dont worry babe im just supremely perceptive’

elodie on the other hand is asked by anne to educate her on the finer points of cooking edible food and always brings marie cessette w her, as she should, and ofc aramis always makes time to come coo at his niece and elodie has to be like ‘ur majesty ur letting the food burn again’ bc anne keeps getting distracted looking at aramis holding a baby (anne continues to be so embarrassing but so relatable) and ofc, i feel like elodie is one of those women who is like [eye emoji] about these things in other women (u know how some women are just Perceptive like that) so she goes home and is like porthos not that this family isnt wild enough as it is but do u want to explain this to me maybe?

even more pure is the idea that the kids slowly one by one find out – louis himself first when hes sixteen (lmao tfw i wrote a whole fic about this) and then marie cessette, and raoul, and alexandre, etc etc, like u know when ur kids and ur not really in on the hot family gossip but the older u get the more privy u become to ur family’s dirty laundry and WILD HISTORY? (this family has some very wild history, i mean,) so yeah i just imagine all the kids chilling in some private place (theyre not RECKLESS, just unchill) and someone mentions louis’s paternity and like alexandre, being the youngest, practically falls off his chair like Ww H A T;;

(and marie cessette is like “u didnt KNOW?” and alexandre is very shook. it takes him a few days to wrap his head around it and marie cessette keeps laughing like ‘alexandre its so OBVIOUS’)

anyways. most dangerous yet most badly kept secret in france should be a continuing trend, is what im saying here
