(some comments: for many South Africans the term “coloured” is preferred if there’s different heritage involved, and Lana English would be considered coloured. But in the US and UK that is considered slur and usually avoided online. Just be aware of the distinction. Read more about that here.

Also, there’s been so many wonderful understudies that I did not get to list here, especially for the role of Carlotta, but also for Piangi, Meg Giry and Madame Giry. Only understudy on the list is Nicholas Nkuna, as he played the Phantom. The others are not forgotten, only left out because of Tumblr’s photo limit)

i can’t believe Angela Merkel murdered a man live on camera

Sakura Haruno Fic Recommendations

I’m an admitted serial Sakura shipper. If there’s a single man in Konoha (or outside of it), you can almost bet I’ll find a way to somehow ship them. But honestly, even if I don’t necessarily ship them, I may find the story beautiful and put it here for others who ship them. Most are in the Naruto-verse but will be stated otherwise if not. 

Most, if not all, are Rated M. So be warned that almost all of them contain smut/adult content of some kind. I’m trying to branch out and read things that don’t contain smut but it’s a little challenging. I like steamy reads. 

Happy Reading!

Mercy clenched her fits, pebbles embedding themselves into her skin through her torn gloves, her head down as tears fell from her eyes, hitting the blood stained road. She could feel the gun against her head as she continued to sob, she barely made a noise but she could feel her body hiccuping. “Beg for mercy, Angela.” The gruff voice said above her, as he pushed his gun into her head. “BEG.” He commanded, but she only shook her head. “I deserve to j-join my friends.” She cracked. “But..” She choked on her spit as she tried to find her words. “I always loved you, Gabriel.” She looked up at him with tears in her large blue eyes, despite the possibility of getting shot in the face she stared at his mask. “I always loved you, and I always thought I could fix you and bring you back, but I was wrong, and I’m sorry. I’m sorry I turned you into a monst-” The gun went off.
its much shorter

Bonus: Reaper dropped his gun in shock, the gun had misfired, it wasn’t supposed to go off, it wasn’t even supposed to be loaded, he fell to his knees, ripping his mask off and pulling the blonde doctor into his lap. “Angie? Angela.. No I’m so sorry. Oh god what have I done?” He asked himself with tears in his eyes.
Further away Sombra could be heard translocating away from the scene. “Oh, pobrecito.” She whispered to herself, a sinister grin on her face


This isn’t right yet because the skin tone is really off and I can’t find quite the right one yet!!! But for a quick sketch and color of Ramonda for the Black Panther trailer it’s alright I guess


We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow
