This is all it takes...

I wanted to demonstrate just how easy it is to get an article written in a major publication if know the right person. 

This isn’t even my job (anymore) lol. 

So I went to the Brandi Carlile show at the Ryman the other night (long live badass rock girls who love girls) and she did a fun, off-the-fly cover of “Jolene” by Dolly Parton. I know a guy who works at Rolling Stone Country who loves Dolly Parton, so I posted about it on facebook and who was like “How cool!” and I said “You should write an article about this, since she told a great story about asking Dolly to cover a song on her new charity album that comes out next Friday.” 

And voila. 

Couple of things. It was not her first-ever shows at the Ryman. She’s played it several times. That was RS Country’s mistake. But I did describe it as a “gutsy” cover and told them it would be a great piece if they could link it back to the charity album. 

I am not even a publicist. 

That’s how easy it is to:

  • Get an article written with a broad angle you want out there 
  • Have the publication make a mistake because they didn’t do their research 

So imagine that in the context of One Direction & The Sun. Simon Jones’ actual job is to get articles written in publications about One Direction & Louis while SIMULTANEOUSLY preventing damaging articles from being printed about his clients. 

Do you see where I’m going with this.

Some of the time, the publication doesn’t need a prompt to write an article. Sometimes it’s click-bait. Sometimes it’s a re-hash of another publication’s story. 

But the exclusives the Sun gets come with “prompts” and set the tone of the article. 

This is not something new. But it’s a reminder that the bullshit the usual suspects spew and have spewed for years all have the same talking points and tone that are consistently contradicted by the boys themselves on camera. I don’t know if Simon Jones is going to Dan Wootton and saying “We have a Louis story and here’s the angle we want” (to be fair, I’m pretty certain that’s what he does in most circumstances) or if he’s complicit through his silence and/or complete lack of management of the damaging stories (hot tip: he’s both an unscrupulous liar and a hack) but it’s clear he’s had countless opportunities to “punish” the Sun by giving exclusives to other publications but that never happens. 

That’s because Simon is working with them on all fronts.

When does Yuuri start calling Viktor 'Vitya' and/or 'Vitenka' and how close is Viktor to dying when he does

Yuuri starts doing it pretty soon after chapter 14 when he asks Viktor why Yakov calls him Vitya and Viktor explains about Russian pet names. Yuuri asks if he wants him to call him Vitya and Viktor blushes really hard, so Yuuri takes that as a solid yes and calls him that from that point on

anonymous asked:

Does Yuuri have a language kink too or not really? Does Viktor ask Yuuri to speak in Japanese during sex (before he becomes conversational in Japanese)?

Viktor replied back in the same language and Yuuri listened closely, admiring the way the words sounded coming from Viktor’s mouth. Despite being able to speak no Russian he could still admire the sound of the language and the way it rolled off Viktor’s tongue effortlessly. - umfb&mha chapter 11 

They are both dorks with a language kink and you can guarantee that at least 50% of the dirty talk in bed post chapter 14 of umfb&mha is not done in English  

I can’t say I’m all that sad about not having you in my life anymore. You were a leech. You took what you could get from me and left when you had your fill of my existence. Nostalgia is annoying. It keeps telling me about how things were great, it keeps making me miss the moments we shared that weren’t real moments at all, at least not for you. Now that I see you clearly, life makes a little bit more sense. Things are sweet, but there’s a part of me that misses you - the idea of you. There’s a part of me that’s bitter.

I heard that during Euros Komova claimed she’s ‘back again.’ I can tell her one thing: we’ll be happy to take her if she’s really back. But I don’t think she’s going to work hard enough to produce the results we want from her. We’ve been waiting for her for a long time, so let’s not get our hopes up.

Attention witches, mediums, and lovers of all things occult!!
I’ve had the urge to make more ouija boards lately and was wondering if there would be interest in having them available to purchase. As of right now, I’m thinking of boards being in the $30-70 (not including shipping) range depending on how elaborate/large they are.
Reply/reblog/message me to let me know if you’d like one! (Note: this isn’t to order or request a board, I’m trying to get a feel for the level of interest.)

Do you have any headcanons about child/teen Viktor? Either from your rivals universe or the just the anime

I always imagined that child Viktor was either an orphan or came from an unloved background which is why he is pretty lonely and doesn’t have the same family support structure as we see Yuuri having in the anime. I kind of picture him as very devoted to skating and constantly being the best and not really considering his future much as a child, just living in the moment and living for the next competition. I also kind HC him as latching onto Yakov as a sort of replacement parental figure but also not paying attention to what he says 99.9% of the time. I really hope we get more of his backstory in the anime though! 

Imagine Loki being gone for a long time, forced to be away from you. When the two of you finally reunite, Loki is stuck in his Jotun form and uses his cold fingers to trace your skin, rememorizing the details of the slopes and slants he’d been terrified he would forget after so long kept apart. Your lips burn, yearning for a kiss from his cool mouth but for now, you can stand to tolerate the delicate feel of his fingers tentatively stroking your face, gliding along your lips and just relishing your presence.

Canon Yuuri is horrified by the umfb! universe... Intolerancia he finds out Viichan is still alive. Then he briefly reconsiders. Still horrified but kind of jealous too.

Vicchan being alive is the only thing in the Rivals universe that is more positive than canon. Something good had to come out of the mess they made of themselves for all those years!
