lady with the cup

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

—  believing i could love you was my mistake, c.j.n.

if people were elements,
then we are ice and fire.

your touch is frost upon my burning skin,
my breath melts your frozen heart.
your kiss is cool against my lips,
and my heat warms you all the way down
to the tips of your toes.

and although we could complement each other,
beckon the other away from the end of polarity
to come and meet in the middle,
too much of one

will eliminate the other.

—  and i’d never forgive myself if i caused your destruction, c.j.n.
Stoned love

Stop messing round with that fire,
Living like love is just a gun for hire,
Cos one moment its just messing round,
To your wiki saying she’s your spouse,
Oh but its not just girls,
Cos yeah one moment I was tearing off her blouse,
Now she says she’s living in my house,

Babe I know you said you’d never smoke pot,
Its just; that burned Like your first splif,
Now we just hanging around in the dark, you’re pale as a ghost.
Stop messing round now, cos am too stoned,
You’re know I can’t save you cos in this game am too gone,

She’s only seventeen, and thinks at sixteen am all there is,
But a degenerate kind, baby am definitely not what you need,
She wants to dance with devil, Mr brownstone is just grave,
Oh Y’know the drugs will drown her out, just too young,
Can’t believe this is my life, smoking and fucking in the back,

I Think I’m Yours

Newt sifted through his writing, letting out a long, tired sigh as he looked for a certain paragraph that he had forgotten to edit. His eyes, one blue and one green, flitted across the pages lazily, only half-heartedly putting effort into the search.  

“Newt!” A voice called. “Order for Newt!”

He jumped to his feet, running a hand over his face in an attempt to push away the creeping tiredness. Editing his manuscript was such a monotonous job that even now, in the early hours of the afternoon, he longed for his bed. He came before the little lady who held out the paper bag containing his lunch and a cup of coffee. She looked up to him, doing a double take as she spotted his eyes. Then she cast a sorry gaze upon him, a sad smile tugging at her lips. Newt took the meal, ashamedly hanging his head lower as he walked back to his table. Not many people noticed, but once up close many could tell the slight significance in the hue of his eyes.

On Yuri’s disliking of JJ

Or why the events order in the show is tricky.

It occurred to me recently that the reason Yuri dislikes JJ so much is not because of his personality or teasing.
It is, however, what we are lead to think when we watch the episodes in order.

The first time Yuri and JJ are shown interacting is at the end of Yuri’s SP at Rostelecum Cup, with the infamous “Ladies First” of JJ. Yuri mentions that he’s “even more annoying than those two [Viktor and Yuuri]”, and considering this sentence follows JJ’s teasing, it makes it look like Yuri hates JJ because of this teasing, and overall, his personality.

But it’s not the case.

Yuri hates JJ because he’s a sore loser.

Now let’s focus on Yuri. He’s young and talented. He’s talented enough to manage to nail a quadruple salchow at what I will assume was age 13-14, and respecting his part of Viktor’s deal, he manages to win the GPF junior without any quads. 

He’s used to win.

It’s even clearer if you look back at episode 2:

Even Yuuri is surprised by how confident Yuri is :

Yuri is confident because he’s used to win.

But then, Onsen on Ice happens, and he looses. We see in ep 4 the RAGE he puts into getting better. In his mind, it’s just because he lacked experience. It was just a one-time loss because he didn’t have enough time to train, to refine the program, and because he didn’t have as much experience as Yuuri (he mentions his lack of experience later in the series). It’s obvious to him that if he just trains harder it’ll fix that little inconvenience, and that loss will just be a bad memory. 

Then Skate Canada happens. We see it in Yuri’s flashback during his FS at Rostelecum Cup. We see Yuri radiating.

At this moment, he just feels like he was right. Like he just needed that little more time to refine his programs and gain experience. He’s at the top, in first place, and he doesn’t see what could go wrong. He’s relieved and exulting, at the place he’s used to be. Things are finally right, he’s winning. The gold is just here.

But then JJ happens.

The way the flashback scene showed it is really good, because it expresses Yuri’s confusion perfectly. He didn’t see it coming. He was already seeing himself with the GPF’s gold around his neck, and can’t believe someone just beat him.

That is why Yuri dislikes JJ so much. Remember what JJ says to Yuri at this point : 

If the “Yuri-chan” can sounds condescending (but Kubo pointed out he wasn’t ill-intended), this sentence is a way to acknowledge Yuri’s talent. “Let’s climb the podium again” implies that he believes that Yuri -despite his young age- is talented and hard-working enough to get on the podium again. That it wasn’t just out of luck. [Note that he doesn’t precise he wants them to be in the same places, meaning that he’s just wishing for both of them to be on the podium, not especially for Yuri to be under him in any way.]

This acknowledgement of his skills should be something Yuri appreciates, since he hates being belittled. But he doesn’t take it that way. To him, it just looks like taunting.

Because JJ beat him, and because he’s a sore loser. And what do sore losers do toward the people who beat them ? They get angry and make them look like bad people.

So the teasing comes pretty uncalled-for, but as Kubo mentioned in an interview, JJ thought that Yuri “would relax”. As we see from his reaction to winning bronze in last year’s GPF and this year, JJ seems to have a pretty good sportsmanship, and probably expected Yuri to be the same. Excepted that it’s not the case and Yuri ends up taking the teasing and his personality as excuses to hate him.

But we see how his hate is actually fragile and based on no tangible basis. Especially in this Hotel scene in episode 10, when he runs into JJ and Isabella and ends up calling JJ “scum” for the way he wears his sunglasses. 

Sounds petty right ? It’s just because Yuri had literally nothing else to insult. Not only JJ didn’t say anything mean or teasing in this scene (he actually looked like he was trying to avoid things to escalate between Yuri and Isabella), but he even lowkey complimented Yuri by saying his fanbase -and indirectly, Yuri; just like Isabella’s comment on Yuri’s fangirls indirectly attacked Yuri- was famous.

Yuri didn’t find anything to reproach to JJ. But accepting he didn’t have anything to insult in JJ would also be accepting that he was hating him without any solid justification other than his own inability to accept his loss. Which he wasn’t ready for yet.

So he insulted the sunglasses. Anything is good to prove that he has tangible reasons to hate JJ.

Since the anime shows us their interaction at Rostelecum Cup before Skate Canada, it leads us to think Yuri dislike JJ because of his teasing, or even that JJ is teasing Yuri on purpose to annoy him. 

But putting the events in chronological order, with the added informations of the later episodes (for example episode 10, that showed us that JJ was actually pretty socially awkward and didn’t realize when his joking was uncalled for) and some interviews, it becomes clearer.

tl;dr : Yuri isn’t hating JJ because of his personality or his teasing. Those are excuses for Yuri to justify his disliking of JJ. Yuri dislikes JJ because he’s a sore loser and is used to win.

HARLOTS & why y’all should please give it a go

Y’all, I am LOVIN this show so far. I’ve just binged what’s on Hulu at this point (episodes 1 – 3) and OHHH, it’s got so much fun and so many feels!!! If you like female-driven narratives, the 18th century, delightful costumes, a great cast (many of whom you might recognize from other shows), and opulent splendor mixed in with gritty squalor, you might just find that you love it, too. Let me share with you but a few of the delights it has in store:

First and foremost, it’s about, and from the perspective of, women. 

Almost the entire main cast is female, and the entire show is just about WOMEN – of all ages and stripes – and their struggle to find/maintain/balance their independence, security, and happiness. And yes, the main conflict involves women pitted against one other, but there’s also so much of women SUPPORTING one another and CARING about one another and LAUGHING and MOURNING and just being HUMANS. Eating, drinking, dancing, sweating, farting, hugging, crying, bitching, whining, hurting, comforting, teasing, yearning, complicated humans.

It’s also created, written, and directed by women, and I do think that’s informed how it handles the characters & narrative. Not gonna lie; when I first heard about this show, all I could think of was how gross this premise could be in the wrong hands (male or female). I worried that it would be trashy and exploitative and superficial. But it’s not. Even sensitive material – implied/mentioned sexual assault – is handled deftly and compassionately, focusing always on the victim’s trauma/well-being rather than on any “shock value” attached to the (off-screen) act itself. The sex workers may be objectified and demonized by some other characters, but they are never treated that way by the narrative itself.

And the harlots are all so interesting! Even the background ones have distinct personalities (and a surprising amount of sexual tension with the local moralizer’s daughter). The Wells ladies – mama and daughters, pictured above – are my particular faves.

Other favorite characters include Will North, gentle brothel dad and the only good man in London…

Nancy Birch, who dresses like a highwayman, wields a sick-ass whip, and pushes me a little closer to 6 on the Kinsey scale every time I see her jawline…

And Thomas Haxby, The Saltiest Man On Earth.

“I don’t think you’re a dog at all, Mr. Haxby,” one character summarizes aptly: I think you’re a bitch.” 

He’s such a scheming little viper and I LOVE IT.

Naturally, given the subject matter, there’s a good amount of female nudity. But if your tastes run to more masculine delights, don’t worry – the boys know how to put on a show, too!

Even the title sequence has wormed its way into my heart, by virtue of appealing to my appreciation for three of life’s greatest gifts: bold typography, old-timey engravings, and butts.

Not to mention that – as you can probably tell from these caps – Harlots avoids the overly dark and muted palette that too many period dramas feel is necessary in order to telegraph to the audience that we are looking back through The Sepia Mists of Time. Costumes and sets alike are colorful and fun. Garish, sometimes, in that late-18th-century way – but if, like me, you have a certain fondness for men wearing powder and rouge, that’s not a bad thing at all!

So if a grimy-yet-gorgeous show about ladies trying to carve out their fair share in life sounds like your cup of tea, give it a try. I’m excited to see where the rest of the season leads.

Sherlock had never run faster in his whole life. Not even the pouring rain could stop him; no matter how much he slipped, he would get up and continue to run. The people around him would either move to the side, freeing the way, or be pushed by him. He had to get back to 221B.

The fear, the anxiety, the nerves got over him, taking over the bit of control he had of himself and his own emotions. His hands, forehead and armpits were sweating and his heart was beating faster – and no, it had nothing to do with his current running marathon – without mentioning the fact that he was looking paler than usual.

He was human, after all, and knowing that the one person who could get him to feel, to embrace his humanity, could be in mortal danger was more than enough for him to forget about everything else and act like a regular person would. If it had been someone else, except for John of course, he would’ve acted as chill as possible; but it was (Y/N) and there was no time to play-pretend when it came to her.

It was just one text message, a very simple and annoyed one that made him lose all control. She had sent it, or so it seemed, because Sherlock received it from her phone. It could’ve been a trap, or worse, but that didn’t matter because Sherlock would become even more reckless when she was involved.

If he exploded, if he got murdered, or trapped or kidnapped, it didn’t matter. As long as she was safe… he would go to the end of the world and sacrifice himself to the Gods if necessary.

His fear was such that his whole body turned off the physical sensations, and so he didn’t notice the muscular exhaustion that was caused by him crossing London by foot in less than ten minutes. He also didn’t feel the scrapes on his knees and elbows, as well as that little twist in his ankle. No, all he could focus on was saving (Y/N).

Sugar Pt. 3 (Luke)

PART 1| PART 2 

MASTERLIST 

“I wrote the lyrics in Chicago. I was with my dad, and we were listening to the old music where they’d always say ‘sugar’ and ‘honey’ - stuff like that. I was like, ‘Why doesn’t anyone do that anymore?’ - Pete Wentz

__

“Smells delightful, sugar.”

The soulful scent of fresh herbs wafts through your kitchen, slices of potatoes marinating in a sizzling pan. Warm pieces of bread are sandwiched in their slots on the counter, the slow timer ticking its soft metronome. The early morning  earthly smell of coffee follow its course through a dilapidated kitchen window , its weary hinges rusty with age. You smile when you realise its none of these scents he’s referring to, his nose buried deep in the skin of your exposed neck.

“Luke…” You warn, feeling his mouth leave wet kisses in a string to your collarbone, the soft press of his hands lifting up his knee-length shirt you’d grown so accustomed to wearing in bed.

Luke merely hums in response, licking his way back up to your waiting mouth, your head tilted at an odd angle to meet his eager lips.

“Luke…” You warn again as his tongue pushes past and bumps sloppily with your own, his sporadic moans as sweet and filling as spoonfuls of honey. His hands inch higher this time, nimble fingers prancing excitedly along the lace of your underwear, your thighs pricked with bumps from the cold feel of his palms. “Isabelle is bound to walk in.”

“Nonsense.” He purrs, slipping a finger inside and running it teasingly over the length of your folds. His voice is nothing but rushes of air, silent whispers of lust against your skin. “No offence sweetheart, but based from what I’m feeling, I don’t think you seem to care.”
