just playing and this came out

anonymous asked:

I always had a AU headcannon of Kara playing the guitar. Like when she first came to live with the Danvers and couldn't control her strength and was to afraid to touch any of them or anything really. Jeremiah went up into the Attic and pulled out this old guitar that he never played anymore and gives it to Kara, said if she could learn how to play without breaking the string she could touch them not problem. Then she just got into it, cause she would play and sometimes Ale would sing with her.

Ok but headcanons of Kara learning to do really delicate things so that she can better control her strength are my favorite!!!!

And she and Alex totally used to sing together! (although Alex has threatened to never order potstickers again if she tells anyone)

But you know Eliza has some old home videos of them singing stashed away and when they all come up for Christmas she shows Maggie and Lena! And of course they find the whole thing just adorable!!

Lena finally talks Kara into breaking out the guitar again and singing for her and it’s just too sweet!

And then OF course their daughter Lexington Olivia Luthor-Danvers (@kevlarknight94 helped me brainstorm a name so I can finally stop calling her ‘the kid’ lol) loves to hear her mom play and she gets a song every night before she goes to bed!

It's Late

A Dragonage thought. I’m still newish to Tumblr. But as an older gamer lady (by industry standards, anyway - being 35 and all), I’m not new to video games. And there are some amazing ones out there. But I keep thinking this about the Dragonage/Mass Effect Franchise:

DA:O came out 2009, DA 2 in 2011, and DA:I in 2014. The most recent game, if you don’t count dlc releases is nearly 3 years old now.

And we are still talking about all of them. Not just on tumblr….but on reddit and twitter and other platforms. People are still grabbing Origins and playing it for the first time, 8 years later. There are whole Fandom communities dedicated to arguing about Cullen. Love him, hate him, don’t care, we are all STILL. TALKING. ABOUT. HIM. People identify with Dorian on a personal level, people love Sera and Hawke and Varric. Still. We are still analyzing their characters, we are following Mark and company on Twitter.


So, here we are, so many years later, still a large community engaging in debate about fictional characters. To me that says the developers and players have come together to make an amazing game - and that is what is important. Characters we dislike, characters that have wierd moral compasses, characters we relate to. Maybe, too, just remember this the next time you are tempted to get angry at someone who has an admittedly stubborn viewpoint. This game has brought so many people joy, and promoted a community in a way non-gamers may not understand.

Pretty cool.

i am literally fucking sweating my director just namedropped that “her friend” is playing rosencrantz in the oscar isaac hamlet and i was like “by….’friend’….do you mean ‘roberta colindrez’” and she was like “yeah!”

DIRECTOR: haha yeah, yeah, get in line. [tells amusing story about roberta]

ME: HAHA [SWEATS]

LISA: when i saw fun home her headshot had long hair and then she came out and had short hair and i was like, “NICE”

LISA: I SAID YOU ‘LIKED’ HER!

Writing prompt for Jarchie: Jughead's internal monologue as he confronts Archie on the steps about Grundy (angst) (You don't have to write this but if you're bored...)

I really love this prompt and did it first, because it seemed so easy, but it was surprisingly harder to write than anything I’ve written before. Hope you like it @themolly-and-theivy.


Jughead walks to Archie’s house and sits in the stairs, sure that Mr. Andrews won’t see him if he glanced out the door windows.

Many times when they were kids, Archie and he would sit down in the porch, playing or just lounging there and Mr. Andrews wouldn’t have the slightest idea.
He tells himself he’s not sitting there for the memories, he came here to help Archie. Archie needed someone to talk some sense to him. That was why he was here.

He’d been working on what he would say when he confronted Archie since he saw him and Grundy in the music room. Jughead wasn’t one to mince words, but he knew Archie.

He was in too deep with Grundy. He probably believed that Grundy wasn’t doing anything wrong. And he was sure that like most kids who were taken advantage of by adults, Archie would think that he was the one that approached her, that he knew what was happening and that he had consented.

He feels himself getting angry. Not at Archie, but at Grundy, at this whole situation.

Calm down, you can’t help him if you’re angry. Take yourself out of the equation, be objective. Don’t make him feel attacked.

Jughead hears him before he can see Archie. Archie doesn’t see him at first, lost in whatever thoughts were running through his head, Jughead steels himself the best he can, silently reminding himself to not lose his temper.

When Archie finally sees him, he stares at him for a moment. “Jug, what’s up?” Archie finally asks, a worried expression on his face. He turns away, and Jughead takes a small breath as he moves to stand up.

“What’s up is I saw you, Archie,” He starts walking down the stairs. “In the music room.” Archie looks at him in open panic, but Jughead keeps going. “With Ms. Grundy.”

Archie walks a few steps closer a nervous energy in his every move, raising his hand and pointing to his house. “Keep your voice down, my dad’s inside.”

Screw calm.

“I’m trying to help you, dude. I’m trying to be your friend here. Even though I don’t have to anymore.” Archie’s at a loss of words, and Jughead knew this was going to happen. “How long? You and Grundy?”

“Since the summer.” This wasn’t the answer he had been expecting. Sure, they had looked intimate earlier, but for them to be together for that long and no one had noticed? In all honesty, no one in Riverdale noticed anything. No big surprise there. “I like her.”

Jughead scoffs. Such a simple statement, but with a teacher? Someone much older than him? Archie had always been a bit more of a romantic than him. He always saw everything with rose colored glasses, but ‘I like her’ didn’t cut it. Not in this situation. “So I’m guessing she’s the reason you’ve been acting weird since summer.”

Archie pauses for a moment before confessing, “One of them.”

“'One of them?’” Jughead only planned on getting Archie to stop whatever it was he had with Grundy. What else was there? “There’s more?”

“We were at Sweetwater River on July 4th.”

No.

Jughead’s mouth drops as cold dread fills him at this news.

“We heard a gunshot. The gunshot.”

“Dude, you have to tell somebody.”

“I can’t.” Archie steps closer to Jughead. “Neither can you. If people find out about Grundy-”

“A kid’s dead, Archie! And you’re worried about some…some cougar!”

Even saying the words out loud made the whole situation of Archie keeping quiet about the murder for someone like Grundy all the more ludicrous.
“Don’t call her that. Okay, she’s not like that, she cares about me.”

“Stab in the dark. I’m guessing she cares more about herself. She’s the one who’s telling you not to say anything, right?” He couldn’t paint it anymore clearly, and he knows he’s getting to Archie, because he doesn’t say anything. “Look, I saw you guys. She’s messing with you, man. And she’s messing with your mind.”

“What the hell do you know about it, Jughead?” Archie demands, before putting a hand on himself, “Or about me, even?”

Jughead can’t believe him. He scoffs, looking down.

One summer apart, with Archie being manipulated by a woman who didn’t care about him, and now Jughead didn’t know anything about him?

Years of being friends, and Archie throws this in his face?

Fine. 

“Nothing.” Jughead meets Archie’s eyes, wanting him to understand the weight of his next words. “But I used to know this guy once. Archie Andrews. He wasn’t perfect, but-” He takes a deep breath, feeling the sting of knowing that the person who was in front of him wasn’t the Archie Andrews he used to know. “He always tried to do the right thing, at least.“ 

The fire from earlier was now gone, and he just wanted to get out of there because bitter disappointment was spiraling inside him.

“Jug.” Archie grabs his arm, not letting go, and Jughead sighs, because he knows that tone of voice. “If you tell anyone about this…” Jughead knows this is what he expected, but in what world would Archie, his Archie, threaten him in any way or form.

“What?” Jughead turns to him, challenging him to finish that sentence. “What are you going to do?”

Archie doesn’t answer.

Say it, say anything, say it. 

The front door opens, causing Archie to look away and break eye contact, and for a small moment Jughead thinks about telling everything to Mr. Andrews. It’s a small moment, but Jughead doesn’t trust that Archie will do the right thing. Not when he implied he’d do something to him if Jughead so much as breathed a word of what he knew.

“Hey, Jug? Coming in? We got take-out from Pop’s.”

Jughead crosses his plan off and thinks of something else to say, but then Archie answers,

“He was just leaving.“ 

Jughead stares at him, really looking at him, and not recognizing him at all. How did he change so much? he thinks as he walks far from the Andrews house. Doing what he could to drown out his feelings, but if he’d learned one thing it was that feelings didn’t go away even when you tried your hardest.

That Bendy and the Ink Machine song actually got me to easily go to sleep with it’s funky murderous rhythms. Thank you, insanely catchy song, for curing my two weeks of insomia.

Although, I should probably give credit to the fact my nephew finally came home from the hospital yesterday– so my anxiety wasn’t at full compacity either. BUT I AM GIVING CREDIT TO THE SONG! 

You know what guys… We always criticize how Real is not giving Alvi time to play but something positive has also come out of this…. He’s learnt to make the minutes count. He’s learnt to strive under pressure. He knows the true meaning of DO OR DIE. At first when he came here… He struggled… But now… He’s slowly reaching his true potential. He’s becoming what we all know he’s capable of.

I do agree with people who say it’s fucked-up that the white guy in La La Land is framed as the pure authentic jazz musician and the black guy as the one who sold out. (Especially since it’s a weird distortion of the history of jazz and those two subtypes but I’ll save you the full musicologist rant mode.) I liked that the movie ultimately came down more on “Ryan Gosling doesn’t like this type, he shouldn’t do it” and condemned John Legend less than I thought, but that implication is still very much there.

Where people lose me is when they act like it’s problematic that it stars a white jazz musician at all, like just playing jazz while white is automatically evil cultural appropriation no one should do. Not only because “um, pop culture doesn’t quite work that way” but also like, I just have to be laugh and be like, where have you been the last several decades? Most professional jazz musicians these days are white. The appropriation already happened years ago, you just weren’t paying attention. It just shows these people don’t really understand jazz and the history and current culture around it as much as they think. (Also, there have been white musicians alongside black musicians in jazz since the beginning. Also also, where was the outrage over the white jazz musicians in Whiplash? Oh right, because it’s not really about there being anything wrong with the film itself, it’s about its place in the Oscar race.)

Also, the whole “mansplaining” thing: is it mansplaining if he actually does know more about jazz than she does? I also have trouble seeing this as a gender thing when like, I talk to people I like about the music I like in a very similar way to Ryan Gosling in that movie. Maybe that just proves I’m an arrogant asshole, idk, but I feel like the way that men assume women don’t know shit about music and presumptively talk down to us about it is different. I’ve certainly been on the receiving end of it enough times to know!

Edit: The more obnoxious, mansplainy thing is that he also knows more about movies than she does. Come. On.

Anyway, I’ll probably write a post for my blog (since I need more stuff to post on there) about my general feelings about La La Land and why it seems to be so polarizing among the general public as well as catnip for the Academy. I realize I might be writing this too late but I kinda hope it doesn’t win Best Picture; it deserves a better legacy than being yet another solid movie that didn’t take that many thematic chances* that beat a riskier, more challenging film.

*Edited this: I thought about it and I do think La La Land takes some thematic chances! Especially the ending, which, SPOILERS AHEAD: it’s super fucking rare for Hollywood to let a woman choose her individual passion over romantic bliss and I really appreciated La La Land going there. But it’s just not on Moonlight’s level in that regard, and I’m not sure how challenging that specific idea is to a lot of older white female Academy voters.

I wasn’t looking of anything when I met you. If anything I was over the thought of falling for someone. I had finally gotten over someone and the thought of being flooded with emotions each day again was exhausting.

But we practically stumbled on top of one another. Our paths could have crossed, but instead they collided. And the night we met was like coming up for air after drowning in my own tears. You made me laugh, and you told me stories about your life and for that night I was just happy to be me. It was an odd feeling, to be so happy and free.

Things didn’t work out, and maybe it was for the best. This way you can always be the guy that never hurt me, the one that let me listen and laugh for a night. And I am grateful for you and the part you played in realising I deserved better than those I had met before you.

“So I want to play a song that came out, I think actually came out last year and ended up being a hit this year… that I have never played before, probably never play again. I just want to play it once. Just once.” (Love Yourself, November 30, 2016.) 

Things that make sense after episode 10

Why everyone is super friendly with Yuuri, even though he claims only Phichit is his friend.

Why Victor came to coach Yuuri.

Why the rumor even started that Victor was taking time off to coach Yuuri.

Why Yuri is mad Victor came to coach Yuuri.

Why Yuri knows he lost the Showdown early on.

Why Chris was *ahem* affectionate at China cup.

Why Phichit has a constant “you kind of deserve this” attitude towards Victor’s shenanigans

Why Phichit has been playing worlds best wingman.

Why no one has been focusing on the Epic Romance playing out (it wasn’t hard to see coming and they just want to skate).

Why everyone keeps offering Yuuri drinks to calm his nerves.

I’m really loving the theme lately with big budget film and TV projects in the ‘nerds and nostalgia’ genre having White Male Entitlement as the villain

like

Mad Max asked who killed the world

their answer was 'toxic masculinity’

Jessica Jones answered with 'rape culture’

and Star Wars threw in 'entitled, privileged white dudes with nostalgiaboners for eras of extreme oppression for everyone else’

could we ask for a more accurate unholy trinity, or a better group to be putting this shit on blast??

Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter, tweeted about my music, so I got in touch and said thank you. We just got in touch and it got to a point where we’d done a music video for “A Team,” we’d done a music video for “You Need Me,” and it came to “Lego House” and they were like, “We need a cool concept, we need something no one has ever done before.” I was like, I’ve always wanted to get Rupert Grint to play me in a video, so shall we just get him?” They were like, “No it’ll be too expensive and he won’t have the time.” So I reached out to Tom Felton and asked if Rupert wanted to do it. He was, and he did it for free, and found the date. It was wicked.   Ed Sheeran

uhhh but guys u know how louis’s voice was quiet in that video?? well what if harry and the smol twins were sleep on the other side of the room,,,.. like they fell asleep watching the brits bc they were playing with their brother/brother in law all day, so by the time evening/night came around they were all tuckered out. and louis didn’t have the heart to wake them up bc they all looked cute :( and :( soft :( so he posted the video (after taking 1000 photos of the kids all snuggled around harry) and then what if he woke harry up with soft kisses all over his face and he’s just like, “we won, love” and then harry, who is still v soft and sleepy, kisses him fr and is like “of course we did.” so they properly get the kiddos settled in bed, and then harry finally gets around to tweeting (after sending a bunch of thank u texts and emojis to liam) when him and louis get settled down in their room like um does anyone else wanna Pass Out Right Now or????
