Cary Grant, born Archibald Alexander Leach

(January 18, 1904 – ∞)

I’ve often been accused by critics of being myself onscreen. But being oneself is more difficult than you’d suppose.

Friday: Act 2 (nsfw)

v.

He doesn’t have time. There’s never enough time. Mitsunari will be the one to find him, and he will hear his feet plodding down the hall, each step a clanging reminder that he needs to draw his hands away, look professional, and leave. He’ll do it too, because it’s his duty. But each time will feel like knives cutting into his skin, so painful will the separation be, until there’s only red sliding down and down and down from his arms and oozing onto the floor.

You won’t be much help either, with the way you slide your kimono back into place and run shaky fingers through your hair. What a shame to have to cover up all that skin, he’ll think, and a heat will begin a slow liquid dissolve into his loins. It won’t quite banish the sudden weariness he feels from being away from you, but he will take pleasure in imagination when he finally settles in for Nobunaga’s war council.

He has time in his mind. You are his wife. Anytime and anyplace he wants. Here, if he liked. His imagination runs wild and torrid, and from his place in the hall among important men he will picture himself smiling as he comes across you writing at your table. A curious attachment will seep in while watching the flick of your wrist translating into cautious penmanship, until the desire in his heart and the heat in his gut overflows his senses. He will go to you then, taking down that amazing hair, and watch your hedonistic lashes quiver as your locks shuffle in a cascade to the floor.

Modern Freyja → in Norse culture, Freyja was a goddess associated with fertility, magic, love, war and death. Described as a benevolent goddess, she helped with the harvest and taught gods and women the ancient sexual magic of seiðr. Through this, she has been associated with the Valkyries, and is said to have taken up to half of the souls who died in battle as her own warriors. Her appetites for pleasure were great - Loki at one point accused her of having shared the bed of every god and elf in Asgard, even her own brother - but when she married Óðr, she became the embodiment of marital fidelty. When her husband was gone to war, legends say she cried tears of gold from longing for him.

Rape Culture in OUAT, or why you can’t pick and choose what is and isn’t sexual assault

The argument about rape culture in OUAT often comes down to “Who’s the worst villain?” which is troubling when it is a very real and prevalent aspect of the show. And when people start arguing that well, this villain does this and that one did that, it diminishes the fact that OUAT continues to perpetuate lack of consent as normal and acceptable.

((So I’m gonna show my shitty OC skillz and post my pilot OC I did))

Name:joan

Age:as a robot, 3, but built as a young adult (17,18)

Bio:created for testing purposes to see how depression may effect someone in certain situations and how they solve them, she was created and sent to testing.
In these longer tests she was given some thing or someone that made her happy for a long period of time, a month or a week;
She was given enough time to get calm and settled, before the scientists took it away, snapping at her and saying that she had did something wrong. More shorter ones are having a friend of hers come in and yell at her, saying things that could scare a child and most likely make a adult break down into tears at the very mention of worthlessness and how they were a mistake, to see if that element of depression has any effect on her efficiency to solve problems and to counter an argument.
It got to such a point she rarely ever spoke to anyone, let alone move. They considered shutting it down, putting her away in storage and forgetting about it, until the day they came to do just that and found an empty cell along with a knocked out guard.

Likes: music, tattoos, social events (ie. Fairs, conventions, etc.), camp fire (any fire, really, she thinks it looks cool), social justice in media, comics, old movies, sympathy, stuffed animals (it’s a guilty pleasure to snuggle with em when she’s sad)

Dislikes: calm atmospheres (afraid of something bad happening), being ignored by a friend, being forgotten about, people getting bullied, depression, people who think depression is a joke, silence, being alone, moths, bees, worms, cows, llamas, cacti, squids, blood (the idea of being filled with a liquid makes her squeamish), and, of course….
Horses (she heard they can kick you in the face and bite your hand off so she thinks they’re the fucking devil tbh)

—————answers to some stuff———————

“How does she have hair if she’s a robot?”
It’s synthetic hair (like doll hair)

“Why is she afraid of all those dumb things?”
Moths are spaztic and make her scared and frantic

Bees in swarms, actually, she doesn’t mind one bee if it’s on its own.

Worms are slimey and she had a bad thought out of the blue of having worms all around her, squirming and stuff, she thinks it’s nasty.

Cows have milk inside of them which is dispensed through holes in their gut. Pretty disturbing to her.

Llamas spit. That is all.

Cacti have sharp needles and just make her a bit too cautious with them so someone else doesn’t get hurt.

Squids are just fucking freaky as shit

And the last two are explained.

“Why is she blue?”
Why not?

“How did you even think of this?”
A experiment I learned about through youtube from the 1960s where a scientist who just came back after suffering crippling depression from loosing his wife, had monkeys, stripped away from their mothers, put in cages and not played with.
Soon they’d stay still, the once healthy monkeys just…/stopped/
You can learn more about it on youtube or google, it’s interesting but terrible.

A nuh one day monkey waan wife!
—  Jamaican Proverb | Meaning: Never forget the people that help you today, as you may need their help in the future. Today won’t be the last you may require help or support from someone so don’t be ungrateful! 

“(Husband) Back when our kids were little we were raising 78 animals in our 34 pyeong (1,209 sq/ft) sized apartment.”
“What? 78 animals?”
“(Husband) Right, that’s only counting the animals we were raising, not the people.”
“What kind of animal can you raise 78 of? Like what kind of animals were they?”
“(Husband) Tropical fish. Haha. But, I’m not lying. We didn’t only have tropical fish. We also had a pair of parakeets and about 80 plants. Ah, I almost forgot one. We had a monkey too, a moving stuffed monkey.”
“(Wife) That…was a living thing?”

“(남편) 예전에 애들 어릴 때 살던 34평 아파트에서 동물을 78마리나 길렀었어.”
“네? 78마리요?”
“(남편) 응, 사람 빼고 기르는 동물만.”
“무슨 동물이 78마리나 돼요? 어떤 동물이었는데요?”
“(남편)열대어. 하하. 근데 거짓말 아니야. 열대어 뿐만이 아니고 잉꼬새에 자라 한쌍도 있었다구. 그리고 키우던 식물만 80여개 였어. 아, 하나 빼먹을뻔 했네. 원숭이도 있었어, 움직이는 장난감 원숭이.”
“(아내) 그게.. 생물이야?”
