kidding it's gorgeous i love it

I love how jungkook isn’t even phased about others calling his nose big. He embraces it and flaunts it every chance he gets, and that’s just so sexy ? Confidence is sexy ❤ Jungkook’s nose is so gorgeous, words cannot even explain its majestic existence. It has so much dimension and cuteness. It can look sharp and sexy from the side but round and adorable in the front. Sometimes you just want to admire his profile and sometimes you just want to boop his nose and cuddle him. #brb gtg write my masters thesis about Jungkook’s holy nose

Your Wedding dress + Venue

 PART ONE

PART TWO COMING SOON


Derek:

“Is it too much for him?” you asked your best friend as the saleswoman placed a beautiful sheer veil upon your head.

“Are you kidding me? Too much? He’ll be worried because he will not only see his wife but the hottest woman on earth in front of him.” She squealed happily.


And it was true; the moment he saw you his heart beat a little faster, and he realized just how lucky he was.

“I think the woods would be a great location for our wedding, babe.” You heard Derek mumble as his eyes diverted from the screen to your eyes.

“The woods? Like, the ones you run in and become all scary in?” You weren’t mad, just worried about the supernatural taking an interest in your wedding ceremony.

“It’s my second home. I want to feel connected to the earth where my ancestors fought for people like me to have the ability to get married to someone who accepts me.”


And so it was done. Once all your guests had arrived, your maid of honor was able to surround the premises in mountain ash, so nothing could come in and ruin your fairytale. Of course, Stiles had no issue brushing it all off when the festivities were over.


Brett:

“Wow, girl. Brett has an amazing sense of style.” You heard Lydia say as she saw you wearing the dress that he wanted you to try on.

“I know. It’s beautiful. I’ll just have to tell him it didn’t fit, or that I didn’t like it.”

“Why?” She asked with a long laugh.

“Because this is the dress I’m walking down the isle in and its bad luck for the groom to see the bride in her dress before the wedding, hm?” You responded, knowing your fiance knew you way too well.

“Dude!”

“Dude…”

“Okay, don’t tell Y//N, but I am totally getting married in here.” Brett told his best man as he bounced his lacrosse ball off the wall.

“Bro, it’s like totally abandoned.” Brett heard his friend say.

“Nah, give it some love and a wicked makeover, and you will find the venue of your dreams. Let’s buy it.”

“Alright,man…let’s find the owners.”


And he did find them. They were confused, but boy did he make you happy with the most beautiful location ever.


Isaac:

“You know, getting married in Mexico is crazy. But no, you’re also flying all your guests over in two days AND planning your wedding in three days while you’re on vacation.” You heard your best friend say over the phone as she was on the plane from France to Cancun, where your beloved Isaac had proposed to you only a week ago. It was sudden, but he wanted to get married to you as soon as possible; even if that meant during a short two week stop in Mexico before your flight to Beacon Hills. 

“I know, kid. I just love him so much, and its pretty exciting as well.” You explained as you grabbed a beautiful white dress off the rack.

“I think I just found my dress…” You said before she could even reply.

“Really? Snapchat it to me you gorgeous idiot!” You heard her whisper-yell, knowing she would be much louder if she wasn’t on a plane.

So you did, and she agreed. That, my friend, was your dress.

Tomorrow was your wedding, and all your guests had arrived. The only issue was, there was no venue. You and Isaac had spend hours searching for an easy venue, yet most were booked or had a long process for renting. You decided to take a stop at a cute little beachside restaurant. The view was beautiful, and it was jam packed since the area was quite a tourist hub. You were eating, when Isaac let out a long laugh.

“Babe, that’s my old 5th-grade teacher!” You heard Isaac say as he nodded toward an older man who was making his way over to you two. 

“Isaac Lahey, well if it isn’t you! You still look just like the young troublesome lad from all those years ago. How are you son?”

Isaac laughed and grinned excitedly, introducing you before explaining how you two were only visiting for your wedding.

“Say, why don’t I take some good cuisine I’ve learned from my time here in Mexico for your wedding. Where is it at?” He asked before chucking and resting his hands on his hips.

“We actually don’t know, we haven’t been able to find an affordable and quick venue. It might just be in the middle of the desert.” Isaac said with a chuckle. You were quiet, letting them reconnect and enjoy each other.

“Well consider that a non-issue. I’ll rent out this place to you guys in exchange for an ability to cater the wedding.

“Oh, sir…you own this place? You are way too generous. Thank you!” You said before letting a small tear roll down your cheek from all the excitement.

“Mister.Kendrick, I will forever be grateful. I don’t know how to repay you. This is a dream come true, because your restaurant is more that my fiance and I have ever dreamt of!” 

The old man just laughed and patted Isaacs back, before giving you a cheeky smile.

“A wedding is a gift. And one day, I just wish you will bring your children and remind them of that.” He said.

You have never been happier.

Lets talk about the animation quality/art style of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters

NOTE: I live in switzerland, so my english is not that good but I try my best. I couldn’t find a post about this specific topic or something similar to what I’m going to be talking about. If this was already done, please let me know! Anyways, lets start this post!

As a kid I always noticed that the art style/animation quality changed with every episode. Each episode had a different art style/animation quality. I was really pissed about it, but as a kid I didn’t know better but now I do. I figured out that they’re is at least three different art styles/animation quality.

So, here we have the first one. I call this the actual art style/animation quality.
Its my all time favourite tbh.
I really love the way the draw/animate the eyes! I MEAN JUST LOOK THIS ONE:

And then here’s Seto:

Originally posted by thedyeddiaper

Its just perfect. The lines are gorgeous, animation is on point, shading is amazing, proportions are god damn right, no crazy hair and I always enjoy watching this art style!! You get what I mean, right?

And here we have the second art style/animation. The one thing that really stands out is how they draw the profile of the characters. Its unique. And the proportions are also really nice!

This is my second favourite art style/animation of this series. Its not so smooth like the first one, but it stands out. The hair is drawn a little crazier but thats okay. The clothes have more details (shading) Again, I love how they drew the profile of the characters.

And here we got the third art style/animation, my personal most disliked one. I just dont enjoy it. As a kid I was getting so mad because I didnt liked it how they drew the characters, with no love. (But now I know that they didnt put much money in the production of the episodes)

Do you see what I mean? The animation is not smooth. Proportions are not right. (Face) I really dont like this art style. I hate it tbh. I dont find any morw words.

I hope you liked this post. It was just something that I wanted to talk about. Leave your opinion! I would love to read them.

Not surprising that Mitch always has Scott on his mind and sees him wherever he looks/goes. I don’t like it when my parents fight tho, they need to kiss and make up. Side note, this video is so aesthetically pleasing and Scott and Mitch both look gorgeous af.   

HighSpecs Week Day 4-Shopping/Illness: All The Things You Do To Me

           Here’s my first shot at writing a pregnancy! Like seriously, along with Noct and Luna, Iggy and Ara would have some damn good looking kids. So what better way to write but for HighSpecs Week? I’ve written a couple pieces before on HighSpecs Babies, so go ahead and check out out my writing tag for them! This is set way after my Day 1 fic, btw. But anyways, on to the story!

           Aranea tried to stretch out her back, but the kid inside her had other ideas as it gave her a swift kick to the ribs, causing her to flop back down on the bed with a huff. She gave a petulant glare to the mound that was her belly under the sheets as she resigned herself to a couple more minutes in bed. “Seriously, kid? I can’t do anything without you saying I can. Ugh…” Being 7 months pregnant was getting on her nerves, and she only knew that she was going to get bigger until the baby came out. She loved Ignis, she really did, but dammit, this kid he had put in her was not being all that loveable right now.

hoseok was a competitor. maybe not as much as his younger friend and fellow frat brother, jungkook, but he’d like to see himself as a winner. whether it be a random dance-off on the streets or maybe beer pong at their usual parties, you can bet that he’s there, eager to claim his prize. even if there wasn’t an actual award, hoseok liked to think bragging rights counted for something. this need to win could be usually found anywhere: grabbing the last bag of chips at the store, being the first to shower in their frat house, and so on. whatever it was, he wants to be the first.

Taylor Swift’s song ‘Gorgeous’ is actually so cringey and superficial and I really really hate it. Like, congrats on writing a song that is literally about someone’s looks and how “gorgeous” they are and nothing about their personality, which pretty much makes it seem like she’s falling in love with a goddamn painting instead of a person.

I’m just extremely weirded out by the swifties going crazy over this song when its utter shit

Plus the lyrics sound like a spoilt kid in a candy shop who gets jealous of what they can’t have

My favorite little time movie

Wolf children- I know this is different from everything else I post, but I wanted to express my absolute love for this film. I’m very emotionally attatched to it, and I think anyone can love it. Even if you’re not one to particularly like anime.

Summary- A young college student, Hana, meets a mysterious man who randomly appears in her class. The two meet, and fall in love. After some time together, the mysterious man reveals his long kept secret. He’s the last descendant of wolf people. Hana is surprised, but loves him anyways. Eventually, they have two children, Yuki and Ame. Hana has a hard time trying to raise puppy children, but it gets harder when the wolf man is killed in a strange accident. Hana moves out to the county to keep her children safe from people, and they learn to live on their own.

The story- This is something of a coming of age story, but not just for the children. Hana herself goes through amazing development. The children learn to live with both their wolf and human traits, and find themselves throughout their ageing in the movie. The most beautiful thing in the movie, is how the family stays together through thick and thin. More so how Hana learns to cope with the loss of her mate whilst still being there for her children. She fixes up a house by herself, she learns to garden and grow food for her children (almost) on her own, and she learns to raise wolf children completely on her own. Even though she struggled a lot, she never just stops and gives up. She pushes through for her kids.

The animation- As an artist myself, this film is something to behold in its art. The background scenery is gorgeous, and calming. The characters are simplistic and yet realistic. I especially love the flat color look on them. And the little details you see everywhere are beautiful. You can watch it over and over and never get tired of what you’re seeing.

The music- Along with magnificent scenery, the music to go along with it is soothing and sweet. Lots of piano and violin is used, and it’s all lovely. I have the entire OST downloaded, and its perfect music to sleep to. Nothing is sad, or super upbeat. Its all just…content. The music sounds content. Some of the other songs with vocals like “ne ne” on the OST are soft and very enjoyable. Even if you don’t understand what they’re saying.

Personal reasons- I love the idea of a happy family. This family is broken, yet not. They’re still happy after everything. I will absolutely cry every time I watch this movie. I relate myself to both Hana and Yuki in this film a lot. Hana does her best and she does it with a smile on her face, and Yuki is playful and rambunctious. Hana is my big self I guess, and Yuki my little. The “Daddy Wolf”, as I like to call him, is a lot like my Daddy. They even look similar. He’s always there, and works hard for the things he loves. Overall, this film is wonderful. Its the bearer of happy memories, calms me quickly, and makes me little instantly. It has a very cozy aura, and I think anyone can watch it.

I am so excited to help reveal the cover of Amy Rose Capetta’s Echo After Echo, a theater-centric f/f YA love story coming this October from Candlewick Press! (And not just because the cover is gorgeous!) Before you see the beauty, here are a few words from author Amy Rose Capetta!

*****

This book came out of two things: being a lifelong theater kid*, and falling in love. I spent a solid fifteen years of my life going from show to show, green room to backstage to onstage, always living for the next cast list, or waiting for the incandescent moment when my work as a playwright was put on its feet. This story started with a beautiful theater, and a girl who loved it. A voice keep dropping words into my ear when I was supposed to be writing something else. The reason I kept coming back, even though I was afraid this story would never find a readership outside of my own head? I was going through a time of serious uncertainty in my own life, and I needed to write a queer love story to give myself hope. It felt like epic love was never allowed for two girls, unless it was tragic. And while it turns out a theater is a ridiculously convenient setting for a mystery, I think the real reason I returned to it for this novel is that I learned to use my voice in the theater, just like the main character, Zara. It’s where I trained to become someone who infuses stories with honesty and truth. And this truth I had—this glowing certainty that tragic endings could be changed and new stories written—drove me to write Echo After Echo. Zara and Eli’s love story was a life-changing experience for me. Now it’s the most important time: when the lights dim, and the audience gets to see what happens.

*A few highlights of my theater life: being in a Shakespeare troupe for four years, performing a monologue on roller blades in front of Kurt Vonnegut (true story), writing a play set entirely in a supermarket, and being a lowly intern at a workshop of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s first musical!

********************

Debuting on the New York stage, Zara is unprepared—or Eli, the girl who makes the world glow; for Leopold, the director who wants perfection; and for death in the theater.

Zara Evans has come to the Aurelia Theater, home to the visionary director Leopold Henneman, to play her dream role in Echo and Ariston, the Greek tragedy that taught her everything she knows about love. When the director asks Zara to promise that she will have no outside commitments, no distractions, it’s easy to say yes. But it’s hard not to be distracted when there’s a death at the theater—and then another—especially when Zara doesn’t know if they’re accidents, or murder, or a curse that always comes in threes. It’s hard not to be distracted when assistant lighting director Eli Vasquez, a girl made of tattoos and abrupt laughs and every form of light, looks at Zara. It’s hard not to fall in love. In heart-achingly beautiful prose, Amy Rose Capetta has spun a mystery and a love story into an impossible, inevitable whole—and cast lantern light on two girls, finding each other on a stage set for tragedy.

Amy Rose Capetta studied theater at the Stella Adler Studio as a teenager before spending four years in a Shakespeare troupe. Echo After Echo is her first book with Candlewick Press.

The Case Of the Half-Hearted Tattoo

OK, everyone settle down. 

There’s no conspiracy or cover-up or media manipulation or anything else. It’s just new information about one of Harry’s tattoos. 

Harry has a half-heart tattoo, like one of those “best friends” necklaces. According to an interview released this morning, longtime friend Nathan Followill has the other half:

This answers a very much open question, whether two photos – out of ALL the photos we have of Louis – show a half-heart tattoo. Some have always said yes, others have always said no:

Whether there’s a half-heart on Louis’ chest or not (I don’t see it, myself) there certainly is one on Nathan’s chest. Whether Nathan’s heart matches Harry’s or not (if so, it’s a bit of a hack job) he says it does. 

This is not a problem. It’s just an explanation for one of Harry’s many tattoos. A friendship tattoo that he got with a friend. 

Harry has lots of tattoos for lots of people. His mom. Gemma. The Green Bay Packers. He’s got the word “Pingu” in his armpit to match Ed Sheeran’s Pingu tattoo. 

He also has these:

As little of a problem as this is, Harry and Louis knew that it would be a big problem for us. 

The half-heart idea is beloved Larrie Lore. I define Larrie Lore as any idea we’ve adopted, despite shaky evidence, because we want to, dammit. Most of the time we’re very open about the “I wish to believe this, thus it is fact, fight me” nature of Larrie Lore. We’ll reply to a chunk of utter headcanon with “#Confirmed”, the sort of cheeky hyperbole that is very often misunderstood outside our realm and leads to comments like “OMG y'all stfu y'all dumb af y'all Larries really believe Harry is an ALIEN!" 

We have deep affection for our Larrie Lore. And in some cases, it’s taken as fact. Furthermore, when Larrie Lore is debunked, antis go into an absolute feeding frenzy. It’s savage.

So when Harry and Louis knew the concept of the shared half-heart tattoo would be debunked, they knew that some of us would be sad, and some of us would be shaken, and all of us would be attacked.

So Harry went out of his way to tell us that he is friendly not only with Nathan but with Nathan’s lovely and talented wife, Jessie Baylin, and with their gorgeous child. Translation: “this is not a romance, kids.” 

And Louis went out of his way to tell us — with a warning selfie, no less – that the dagger and the rose are important. That we should stop and really think about this.


Translation:"I didn’t get the dagger for you to be a weak Larrie now.”

haha. uh. its story time, kids:

when i went to katsucon, i bought a single white rose for lessa, because i was dressed as clear and she was dressed as aoba. but when we met for the first time, i wasn’t in my clear costume, so i left the rose in my hotel room.

when i came downstairs, lessa was dressed in aoba’s adorable valentine’s day outfit, and was holding a gorgeous bouquet of flowers!

after receiving this lovely gift, i felt like my wilty, single white rose, which was hardly more than a bud, was totally inadequate, and i chickened out. i never gave her the stupid rose; i left it bitterly in my hotel room.

so um. here is a picture of clear, making better decisions than i did. :’^)

happy very, very late valentines day, lessa. your gift successfully filled my stomach with butterflies.<3

In a cab in New York - I wish I would have time to meet some of you lovely people, but its a quick one night trip and jam packed with board meetings and dinners. Weather here is gorgeous though!


I forgot deodorant, floss, and my one hairband just broke. Ha. But I made it here in piece and on time. Starting packing about 9:30 last night and realized I had no clothes, bra, shoes that were work appropriate. Ha. I’m totally that disheveled 40 year old mom and there ’s nothing I can do about it at this point. Ha.

Does everyone develop a fear of flying once they have kids? Not a fear of flying so much, but of leaving them that way - I always think of 9-11 and all the kids that waved bye and gave kisses to their parents and they left for routine plane trips and never came back. The last image of my kids standing in the doorway blowing kisses and waving replays in my head the whole flight. It seems harder to leave them each time. And, I really hope Babygirl is still there when I get back.
