The Countess of Lisburne (1926). Gerald Festus Kelly (English, 1879-1972). Oil on canvas. Ferens Art Gallery.

Kelly was educated at Cambridge University and studied drawing and painting in Paris, in the academic style of art. The painter Whistler was an early influence. Kelly gained a reputation as a technically accomplished exponent of academic portrait art. Here the Countess is depicted with leather bound books, writing materials, and figurines, suggesting that she was a well educated intellectual woman.

Just This Once (Don't Get Used To It)

“Could you just leave me alone? You’re good at that, aren’t you?” · ~ · The day after using Corruption, Dazai runs into Chuuya—only, his ex-partner seems intent on avoiding him, not even rising to his taunts. Clearly, the situation must be remedied at once.

oneshot, canon, fluff

Notes: I love the way Dazai struggles with trying to distance himself from Chuuya while simultaneously giving in to his feelings. This is a lovely fluffy peice that does a great job of showcasing a caring aspect of Dazai’s personality (and also does a great job of fixing the end of the skk episode/chapter).

Someone requested I make a masterlist of those who are Ashkenazi Jewish and over thirty. Some of these face claims could play young or older parents of others. Some might be able to get away with playing an early twenty year old. Be aware some of those listed are mixed race, however it will be mentioned what other ethnicity they are. This list is useful if ever you need a face claim who is of this ethnicity. To search for someone’s ethnicity if biracial, just press CTRL+F on your keyboard and search for that ethnicity.

Some may not have gif hunts, but that is just an incentive for someone to do one. I have not listed politicians, those who work behind the scenes in things, a businessperson and those who have died,

  • Ashkenazi Jewish -  A Jew of central or eastern European descent
  • Other ethnicity masterlists: Under 30 (Filipino, E Asian etc), over 30.

Please like or reblog if this is useful to you or others.

I have to say in carrying themselves and in speech the Duggars do come off better than the Bates. While the Bates seem more genuine and loving they show their lack of education every time they open their mouths. They have horrible grammar. Me and Nathan, me and Carlin, me and Tori just no already. Dear Bates it’s Nathan and I, Carlin and I, Tori and I. Please teach your children proper English Kelly and Gil. Oh wait you have to lead by example. Learn grammar before you home school them

Victoria Loren “Tori” Kelly is an American singer and songwriter who slowly gained recognition after starting to post videos on YouTube at the age of 14. When she was 16, Kelly auditioned for the singing competition television series American Idol. After being eliminated from the show, Kelly began to work on her own music. In 2012, she independently released her first EP that she produced, wrote, and mixed herself, titled Handmade Songs By Tori Kelly. The following year, Scooter Braun became her manager after seeing her videos on YouTube and introduced her to Capitol Records, with whom she signed in September. Kelly’s second EP Foreword came out in October 2013 as her first major label release. On June 23, 2015, Kelly’s debut album, Unbreakable Smile, was released. The lead single, “Nobody Love”, was released in the spring and became her first US Billboard Hot 100 appearance. Kelly was nominated for Best New Artist at the 58th Grammy Awards.

Red Carnation

Dazai is an impulsive artist. Chuuya didn’t mean to get so attached to him. Following a particularly bad day, Chuuya goes home in the hopes of getting some peace and solace. However, Dazai ends up making his day even worse, sending Chuuya on a spiral down memory lane and making him question whether this is really what he wants in life.

oneshot, alternate universe, light angst, fluff

Notes: This is a really cute AU with a realistic approach as to how Dazai and Chuuya’s relationship would work in a different environment. The characters maintain their personalities, and the use of flower language here is well done. Overall a sweet fic that leaves you with that warm fluffy feeling.
