I’ve been looking for a gallery style page for a character blog of mine for a long time and haven’t really found anything recent or in the style I was looking for. SO, I decided to make my own. It is designed to look like an instagram page for your character, but it can be used for personal blogs of course as well!
There is a 200px by 200 px icon in the header.
The images will automatically resize, and can feature a caption when you hover of the photos.
Please do not claim this work as your own, use as a base code, repost or remove credit. If you need any help editing the blog, have questions or find an error in the coding, please contact me directly through inbox here. Please like/reblog if using and feel free to message me links to your blog if you use my theme, I’d love to see what you do with it!! Enjoy!
What are some songs you listen too when you're sad. Songs that are soft and make you cry because they're happy and bring out your emotions?
i actually have two playlists on spotify for this sort of thing - one for sad songs (x) and one that has mellow themes with happier lyrics (x). tbh i usually only cry to very specific songs, and happy songs don’t make me cry, but i’ll see what i can find!
my go-to crying songs:
lies - marina and the diamonds
bravado - lorde
she used to be mine - sara bareilles
a beautiful mess - jason mraz
landslide - fleetwood mac
between two lungs - florence + the machine
million years ago - adele
liability - lorde (yes this song literally just came out but it’s already made me cry and it’s so emotional)
can you recommend me some romantic comedy movies ???
Can I? CAN I? Fuck yes I can, let’s do this.
1. The Proposal
Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock star in this movie about a boss from hell who is about to be deported, so she forces her assistant to marry her so that she can get a green card. This is every single fake dating fic you’ve ever read in action, as well as the enemies to lovers trope well at play. Reynolds and Bullock were bros for years before filming, and their friendship allows for ease when it comes to acting together– you can tell that they had fun filming.
This isn’t your usual rom com, in that the two lead actors and exquisite ensemble cast (including, yes, Betty White) make it so fucking funny. It’s directed by a woman, who knows what women like, but also allows her story and the characters to be smart as a whip, which is so refreshing. It follows the marriage plot pattern, but gets there in a fun, unique way that doesn’t always feel like you’re watching a rom com. Also, if you hate cheese, this movie has minimal cheese. The moments where it is cheesy are the moments when you’ll be desperate for some good ol’ fashioned love because the romantic tension is just Too Much.
I have a friend who hates romantic movies and she adores this movie. That’s how you know it’s good.
2. Bridget Jones’ Diary
Bridget Jones is about to turn thirty years old and she is still single, still chubby, and still making hella bad decisions. Enter Mark Darcy, who is an uptight, recently divorced lawyer who Bridget dislikes almost instantly due to his standoffish personality.
If you can’t tell just from this description (the love interest’s name is a pretty good clue) Bridget Jones’ Diary is just one of Colin Firth’s versions of Mr. Darcy.
The book was written by a woman, who also helped write the script, and the movie was directed by a woman as well. It’s fun, full of hijinks (and secondhand embarrassment, dear god) and everybody should watch as many Colin Firth movies as humanly possible anyways. (Hugh Grant is the Wickham character, too, which is always a bonus.)
3. Bride & Prejudice
Speaking of Pride & Prejudice adaptations, this one is one of my favorites of all time. It is a Bollywood Musical adaptation, starring the incredibly gorgeous Aishwarya Rai, who plays the Elizabeth character beautifully. This movie is a feast for the eyes– the colors are stunning, the costumes are stunning, the sights are stunning. It shows beautiful representations of familial and platonic relationships as well as romantic ones. It was also directed by a woman, and written by a husband and wife team.
There’s something so gorgeous and pure about this movie. It’s one of my favorite films of all time and I am absolutely unapologetic about that. Featuring songs such as “No Life Without Wife” and gems such as “Some women have even become… The lesbian!” This movie is, I think, a must see.
4. Notting Hill
Just one rom com variant of the famous AU that you will probably love. Hugh Grant plays a character who owns a travel bookstore. Julia Roberts plays a famous actress. When they meet by chance a few times, they slowly begin to fall for each other.
There’s something so lovely and pure about this movie. It’s just… soft and nice, like you’re drawing a warm blanket over yourself. The grand gesture at the end is fantastic, but that’s not the part that will make you watch the movie again– it’s the scenes in the middle, when Anna is staying at Will’s house and they’re growing together as friends but possibly something more. It’s just… it’s so nice. As a viewer, it feels so good.
Favorite line: “Happiness isn’t happiness without a violin playing goat.”
5. 13 Going On 30
Jenna Rink, sick of being thirteen-years-old and on the brink of adulthood, makes a wish that she could be thirty (thirty, flirty, and thriving.) When she wake sup, she’s thirty and (*gasp*) HAS BOOBS. The first thing she does, of course, is look up her best friend from childhood, who she hasn’t been friends with for years. It looks like she got her dream life, but left huge pieces of herself behind along the way.
This is the first PG-13 movie I was allowed to watch, and if I had to guess, I would say that it’s probably the movie I have watched and rewatched the most in my life. I think I can quote this movie word-for-word. It’s funny in a way that isn’t mean, which I think is very rare these days? The fact that Jenna is a thirteen year old makes the humor in this movie a delight. And the film, as a whole, has a rose colored lense that just makes the world seem prettier. Mundane things that people take for granted seem nice and fun and important. It’s weird, because I think it makes adult life seem simpler. Like… just be nice and treat other people well. Why do we over complicate it?
Also Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo are both adorable. It’s the kind of movie that you watch when you’re sad, when you’re happy, when you’re sick, when you’re bored. Watching it feels warm and content. I would rec it to anybody who wants to smile.
(This list has 26 films on it so I’m putting the rest of this under a read more.)
Stiles is six months pregnant with Derek’s babies when his mate gets home as a teenager, somehow having gotten de-aged again. Their mate bond is still strong, however, and all Derek wants to do is take care of Stiles…
Kink meme fill: Derek/girl!Stiles Derek and Stiles have a very casual relationship where something happens leaving Stiles under the impression that Derek just wants her for sex. They can be a little bit older when Stiles becomes pregnant, and angsts like hell because she thinks Derek will leave her.
Stiles didn’t believe Derek. He didn’t believe any of the wolves. Screw their stupid mutt-noses. That was, until he started showing. Stiles woke up one morning looking stuffed, the next morning looking bloated, and the morning after that he had a full on bump going on. It was true. Stiles was gonna be a mommy. And if that wasn’t the scariest friggin’ thing that ever happened within the Beacon Hills county lines.
Stiles is a young adult incubus who has made his way to New York City. After his first makeout session ended in death, he left Beacon Hills to try and understand what he was and protect the people he cared about. But being his father’s son, in name if not by birth, he’s never been able to accept the idea of killing innocent humans to feed himself. So in order to survive and keep his morals both, he travels across the country feeding on sexual predators.
Derek is a NYC werewolf cop, who dedicates his life to protecting and serving both the human and fae communities - protecting them from each other if necessary. When a string of succubus or incubus kills starts hitting his city, and Derek runs into Stiles at a crime scene, Derek wants to find a way to help this neophyte fae survive under the radar before someone else puts him down.
Too bad Stiles seems to run away whenever Derek gets near him.
Warnings: As a vigilante incubus, Stiles spends a lot of time around rapists and doing rapey things to them with his mojo. The warning is for this, not for rape between Stiles and Derek.
Stiles is an underage incubus caught up in fae politics with no idea what it means to be fae. Luckily, Laura Hale, his local alpha, is willing to take him in, and offers her brother to keep him fed. Unfortunately not everyone is happy with that turn of events, and so Stiles must learn what it is to be an incubus and what it means to be pack.
Stiles, an incubus and The Head Librarian of Hell’s best Library, never actually did think that a some sort of prince of Hellhounds would be pushing him against a wall and asking to court him. Especially not when he has been miraculously virgin his whole life, and the most exciting thing in his life had been monthly dinners with his dad and a plate full of curly fries.
Now there’s hellhound civil war starting around the corner, a drug that makes the hellhounds go crazy and politics he never wanted to be part of.
Those are a mix of high fantasy and more general, but all have great fantasy aspects and even better female characters. Now for dystopian novels with female protagonists. Please indulge me while I list the most well-known ones first!
