Simon has handled Zayn’s departure very oddly. He’s not been telling a consistent story.

On the James Corden show, he said he wanted to jump off a cliff, which was probably actually the case. Zayn leaving is going to cost him money. It’s going to cost Sony money. It’s going to cost everyone money. So, yeah, I bet he was begging on his hands and knees for Zayn to stay. He goes on to say that Zayn’s been unhappy for a while and has wanted to quit for a while and that when the decision was made, there was nothing he could do. Simon wouldn’t have had the opportunity to try and convince Zayn otherwise if it happened THAT day. I think Zayn decided he wanted out last year, and Simon and their team have done everything they could to get him to stay since then. After that angle was lost, I assume they went into solo career talks. Zayn would have been ripped apart by lawsuits if he left prematurely. Of all the research I’ve done, that’s mostly what suits come down to - artists leaving before their contracts expire. It must have been a litigation nightmare. I bet Simon is telling a version of the truth, but what he condenses into a couple of days probably was a couple of months. Zayn wanted to quit, Simon tried to tell him not to, solo contracts were arranged, Zayn left. Simon’s behavior in this interview is just weird. He keeps scratching his face, which is a sign of deceit. He’s not telling the truth here. And he handled the future of 1D question very, very oddly.

In the Sugarscape interview, he acts even more agitated. He rarely looks at the interviewer, he keeps fidgeting, scratching at his face, and that’s not the behavior I expect from Simon Cowell. He keeps stressing how talented they are, how Zayn needs a break, and how the other four have got a bright future. He says the other four were “surprised and shocked” but then “got over it” or “got used to it” which I’m not sure how that happened over the course of a few days. You don’t just get used to it when a fifth of your band leaves unexpectedly.

Now on Good Morning Britain, he says there was no warning, nothing.

The boys said on Corden that people on the outside could tell, that Zayn wasn’t happy, that they were angry and disappointed when he made his decision. They all repeat the mantra of it’s fine now. But, they’ve all handled this oddly, especially Simon. I would think he would have a very refined idea of what happened and how to spin it. They seemed to have been sticking to the party line of “he wasn’t happy for a while, we tried to get him to stay, he decided he didn’t want to, he left, they deal with it.” But, now, Simon’s acting like he had no idea and was completely blindsided. The timeline changes with every interview. With James Corden, it sounded like it was maybe over the course of a couple of weeks. With Sugarscape, it was long enough for them to get used to it. With GMB, it was completely sudden. The boys made it seem like they’d known it was going to happen for a while, almost like they expected everyone to have been able to see it for a while. It’s a messy situation, so I’m not surprised that the story has been a little erratic. What surprises me is that Simon keeps going back and forth, and he looks extremely uncomfortable when speaking about it.

I don’t know why some people assumed that Stefan was lecturing Caroline or somehow implying that it was a bad thing that she is a “control freak” and that’s why she didn’t like to lose control on 6x21

That was not what he said,

He was merely explaining why she hated the feeling of losing control.

Not, for one second , he said it was wrong. He didn’t. In fact, he said he was the same - which is part of the explanation why he acted like a douche at the beginning of the season.

And he was so freaking right. It was a great explanation tbh.

But it doesn’t change anything, he loves and will always love her and her control freakiness. I mean, did you see how he smiled even when she was avoiding him? He just find her completely endearing, he’s so in love.

But he knows her. Which is why he told her that. He was telling her not to be afraid or worried, he wasn’t telling her not to be herself.

The thing about Steroline is that Caroline makes Stefan lighter and Stefan makes Caroline calmer, everyone knows it! That’s their thing.

Senpai! Do you think you could make a special page on this blog for those AU thing? So we could check them again anytime we want. Well only if you don't mind :)

I’m gonna one-up you here bc I’ve got something even better!  I like AUs, you guys like AUs, so I figured we might as well have a separate space to talk about it where it doesn’t clog up this blog!  I’m still messing around with layout and theme and whatnot, but ask me again tomorrow and I’ll put up the link to a separate blog for these silly AUs!

!!! I get to go to the Lambda Literary Awards this year!!!!!! Tickets are apparently $150, but my boss is taking me- she gets to expense it to her corporate expense account bc she’s janet mock’s editor and janet is nominated and presenting! I can’t even believe it, I get to go to the lambda literary awards as a publishing professional less than a month into my first full-time job I AM LIVING THE DREAM!

so i saw age of ultron

idk, it definitely wasn’t the best of movies, but it wasn’t bad?? and I didn’t notice anything egregiously anti-feminist besides the prima nocte line (which was TOTALLY unnecessary but just solidifies tony as the World’s Biggest Douchebag) and the “still think you’re the worst monster on the team” line (which would have been fine if it had come after, say, “i killed hundreds of innocent people and didn’t feel a thing,” but instead it came after “i can’t have babies,” which…..okay seriously who thought that was okay).

but like the rest of the movie and scarlet witch were pretty much fine?? idk maybe i’m just a bad feminist

You know what annoys me most about this years elections? It’s that the Lib Dems took the blame for all the failures of the coalition government, when actually they stopped the Tories from ruining the country the way they will now.The Lib Dems blocked the Human rights act getting scrapped, they blocked the EU referendum happening, they ran the Department of Energy and Climate Change, now facing the biggest cuts. They couldn’t block everything, which led to the University fees being raised, and yes, Nick Clegg messed up big time when he didn’t step down, causing the hatred of his party, basically. But I’ve had people try and tell me it was the Lib Dems who messed up, when they were the ones stopping the Tories doing, well, what they’re doing now. How is it fair that the Lib Dems had to suffer when the Tories were the ones screwing over the country? 


I really don’t understand why we have to all be so rude to each other.

someone had a great idea. they decided not to do it. someone else picked it up because it was a great idea–not copied, not took over because they’re bigger/more influential/etc.

what’s wrong with wanting to get great 1D music out there? all the people I know (adults over the age of 25) love FOUR but they would never have listened to it without me suggesting they do so and playing them some of the songs. People aren’t good at trying new things.

I love this fandom, I really really do. But everyone is so quick to be negative (example: the coke ad today) and quick to forget all the great positive changes we’ve had recently.

In the end, I take only one cue and one cue alone as to how things are going: the boys themselves. They look happy and healthy. They look like they’re winning the war. Or they’ve already won it.

It wasn’t often she was required to be dressed up formally, but she would never pass a chance to possibly swipe from a fancy place. Though she wouldn’t complain about having to come back with the proper gear. 

Dressed in a dark green formal gown, with a matching elegant mask, she mingled with some of the posh bastards that had been invited. Using a persona she created to make deals for artifacts, she would pose as an interested party looking to buy one. Clover wasn’t fond of too much socializing, yet he caught her eye. Just the air about him had been commanding, and she couldn’t help hanging around listening to him. 

“Shame, you have been one of the few interesting people here all night.”

[pm] I’m assuming you’re not referring to tomato juice with that horror movie comment. Do you know why it’s happening? I’m [d: sca–] looking through the books I’ve bought but there’s, like, NOTHING.

[pm] No, not tomato juice. Unfortunately. Uh, no… No, I don’t know. I’ll find out though. I’ll ask some people. Someone’ll know the answer or they’ll find out. Just stay inside until it clears up and be, you know, safe. Cautious, I mean. Blood rain isn’t usually a good sign of anything. You want me to let you know if I find anything?


lunar-vee do you support the theory that the lich…

…………………….. WHAT IF………….. FINNS MOM WAS PREGNANT WITH HER SECOND CHILD……. WHEN SOMETHING INVOLVING THE LICH HAPPENED…………… and the lichnanigans totally screwed her body up and Now the lich is like…a 3way fusion?


u know when someone comments on something you’re incredibly self conscious about? and like it’s not even the thing that you’re upset about like you could be self conscious about your nose bc u think its a weird shape and someone goes “oh that’s a weird freckle you have on ur nose” and you’re like great now i have to worry about that too!!! anyway that happened to me last week and ive been feeling weird bc of it since then


Sooo... this happened.

I got a free Nikon digital camera today from my stepmom, I’d been talking about saving up my birthday money to get one and she just goes, “oh I have one, hang on, let me see if I can find it for you.” and I was like “wait, are you just giving me this?” and she was like “yep, happy birthday.” so I now have a digital camera, that I got for free. I couldn’t thank her enough and I’m still a little taken aback, but it was crazy nice of her. my stepmother is a wonderful human being. truly the embodiment of the “cinnamon roll too good for this world, too pure” meme if ever anyone was.
