Gabriel Agreste was a fashion icon. His company was at the top of the fashion world. He was an idol to every aspiring designer. 

So why was he wearing a flower crown and a butterfly patterned shirt?

But like…when you boil it down, how much agency can he possibly truly have if they brought back fucking Eleanor??? How horrible must any other option have been? We all saw how much he hated that fake relationship. People think it makes them sound savvy to believe he is choosing this.

How much agency can he have if he’s communicating with fucking snake shirts?

Aaaaaaaaaaaand Angela is back in the game, everyone!

How much influence she has in 2017 is another matter altogether. 81 notes on the post above, but this bonkers statement that billion dollar band One Direction may have been  casually 'given’ to Jeff by Irving hasn’t gone over anywhere near as well.

 Anonymous asked: “An Azoff is an Azoff” has to be my favorite quote when you knew for a fact Azoff was managing the band but didn’t know if it was Jeff or Irving 🙄l

lapelosa:

Wait…. am I fighting with Harry haters here? Because I remember it was that particular clique that couldn’t understand simple things, like that in particular. Yeah, amazingly, I didn’t know for a fact if Irving kept the band for himself or decided to give it to his son, especially after the Azoffs started playing shady misdirection games. I only knew the basic fact itself, what a shocker.

I stand by what I said, my simple-minded anon.

I wonder what has prompted the ever patronising Angela to swerve from her daily analysis of kissing gifs from SKAM?

I walked away from the last Great Time War. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment, until nothing remained. No time. No space. Just me. I walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a mad man. I’ve watched universes freeze and creations burn. I’ve seen things you wouldn’t believe. I have lost things you will never understand! And I know things. Secrets that must never be told. Knowledge that must never be spoken. Knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze. So come on, then. Take it!

But guys...

Yuuri and Victor… now they’re on the same page. There’s no more fear of rejection or the shadow of a set end. They know they want to stay at each other’s side. 

It breaks my heart, because it must have been so hard Yuuri, our anxious boy with very low self-esteem, to ask him to stay with him. Let’s point out that in Japanese he says something like “please be with me until I retire” for added feels.

And Victor not only kisses his hand in such a tender way and looks at him like he’s the most precious and beautiful thing he’s ever seen in his life, he also tells him that he wishes to never leave. In a corner of his mind, Yuuri always believed that his time with Victor was fixed. A few months, a year… The GPF has always been the ultimate deadline, because he couldn’t think of a real reason for Victor to stay afterwards. But here it is, this silly Russian man assuring him that he has no intention of going anywhere.


I would also like to point out that retirement is something Yuuri has all the decisional power over. So basically Victor is also telling him that he’s gonna stay as long as the other man desires and that, if he could choose, he would never part from him. Hence the tears. Victor quietened all his doubts and fears.

I can barely wait to see how their relationship is going to evolve after this clarification/declaration, not that there shouldn’t be any doubt whatsoever. I can’t wait to see Yuuri’s FS at the GPF!

Yuuri won’t win alone. They will win together.

This photo of Raystown Ray was taken in 2006 by a local fisherman while he was looking down on the lake. It is considered the best evidence that there is a creature living in Raystown lake in Pennsylvania. Jeff Krause, a wildlife biologist that works at the lake said “I believe it must be a vegetarian. We have not seen any evidence of this animal taking fish, geese, otters, or ducks. So I would suggest that our swimmers and boaters are very safe. It appears this animal’s habits are similar to Manatees, which are completely herbivorous and gentle. The increase of weed beds around the lake is probably providing more food in the shallows for herbivores and that would increase sightings.”

Since Raystown Lake is man made, the best question is: if there is a monster there, how did it get there in the first place?

how old were you when they told you that your body was a temple you weren’t allowed to let other people into? that your hallowed soul would somehow rot and grow mold if you let another human being’s breath caress the tops of your shoulders, the curve of your neck?

because i was seven. my father said, “your body is a gift, save it.” i am not an object. i am not an object.  

“it’s good to cover up.” no. i cover up mistakes, i cover up failures. i am not either one of these, and it has taken me years to train myself out of believing it. if i must lay eyes on every whitehair chest of lobster-red old men in their wrinkly skin and saggy swimsuit bottoms, you can handle my spaghetti straps, my dresses above the knee, my shorts, my v-neck tee. 

“what will people think?” well given that when i dress modestly i’m seen as a prude and a frigid bitch, i’m going to assume they’re thinking something insidious. the happy thing is: their thoughts don’t change my reality. i am not defined by them. you can’t tell me who i am. you don’t own this. you will never own this.

“leave something to the imagination.” your problem is the reality of my body, and i’m not sorry. you hate that you can’t imagine me flawless, no scars, no scabby shins, not a real human. in your head, you photoshop onto me large breasts that stay perky without a bra, hips without stretchmarks, a spine without freckles. but i am real, and these are all beautiful, and you should feel blessed you look upon them. 

“no man wants a woman like that.” that’s fine with me. i don’t want a man who judges me for showing off my body. in fact, some of us don’t want a man at all. sadly for you, i don’t dress to impress strangers. i dress because it’s summer, and i’m hot, and i don’t just mean the temperature. and for the record? when i do dress for my man in skimpy little booty shorts? he doesn’t seem to have much of a problem with or without it. he loves me for who i am and not the purpose i serve as an object.

and i am not an object. i am not an object. you don’t get to sum up my personality based on my clothing. you cannot hold a book and look at the cover and tell me the whole story. you cannot look at me and know anything. i am not just a book. i’m a nation of libraries.

i do not become unholy for a strapless dress. i do not lose myself for daring to wear a skirt with a slit up the leg. “ladies, your body is sacred, make sure you dress in clothing i personally find demure and satisfyingly modest” sounds a lot like you think you’re a god and only you can determine whether or not i'm worthy of eternal damnation. 

i got news for you, buddy.

i’m a goddess. i don’t ask for permission.

anonymous asked:

In regards to the question about Renly, my question would be, is there a better way forward for his general political direction? Like a permanent great council and elective monarchy in the future seems like a possibility to me.

That is absolutely not Renly’s “general political direction” and it points to how Renly is profoundly misunderstood by the fandom. Despite his pretentions to meritocracy and popularity, Renly does not believe in the concept of an elective monarchy or Great Councils at all. He says this directly:

“Robb will set aside his crown if you and your brother will do the same,” she said, hoping it was true. She would make it true if she must; Robb would listen to her, even if his lords would not. “Let the three of you call for a Great Council, such as the realm has not seen for a hundred years. We will send to Winterfell, so Bran may tell his tale and all men may know the Lannisters for the true usurpers. Let the assembled lords of the Seven Kingdoms choose who shall rule them.”

Renly laughed. “Tell me, my lady, do direwolves vote on who should lead the pack?” Brienne brought the king’s gauntlets and greathelm, crowned with golden antlers that would add a foot and a half to his height. “The time for talk is done. Now we see who is stronger.” Renly pulled a lobstered green-and-gold gauntlet over his left hand, while Brienne knelt to buckle on his belt, heavy with the weight of longsword and dagger.”

When you take away the witty repartee, Renly’s political theory is naked tyranny - his personal excellence or popularity only matter to the extent that they attract soldiers to install him as king by force of arms, and you can see how paper-thin those rationalizations are when Catelyn tells him to put his money where his mouth is and stand for election in front of the political community and Renly says no. 

I’m honestly perplexed how people keep missing the fact that Renly is a hollow man: the thematics are everywhere, from Donal Noye comparing him to copper to Maester Cressen remembering him as a pageantry-obsessed attention-seeking child. The tragedy of Brienne in ACOK is that Renly doesn’t give a damn about her (as Loras says later, “Renly thought she was absurd. A woman dressed in man’s mail, pretending to be a knight”), he only gives her the cloak because Barristan didn’t show up and he knows he can make use of her (“He said that all his other knights wanted things of him, castles or honors or riches, but all that Brienne wanted was to die for him”), he knows she’s in love with him and treats her like a dog he can summon and dismiss whenever he wants (”His words seemed to strike the girl harder than any blow she had taken that afternoon. “As you will, Your Grace.” Brienne sat, eyes downcast.”). 

And as I’ve explained in my recaps of AGOT and ACOK, Renly does all of this knowing that Joffrey is not Robert’s heir, that Stannis is telling the truth, that he himself has no right to be king. HE IS A BAD MAN WITH GOOD PR.

ok theory time. In Voltron we’ve seen Allura give her life force to the Balmera. And we’ve seen Haggar and her minions take life force. 

So my theory is the Haggar is the same species as Allura and Coran. but Coran can’t project his energy. So it must be rare or only the royal bloods can do it. So maybe Haggar is a relative to Allura. Maybe Haggar even overthrew the royal family. I mean how common is white hair- I dont think that Haggars white hair didn’t come with old age with the amount of quintessence she has been collecting through the years.

Anyway, I think giving quintessence is ok. but taking is a big taboo and has consequences. Such as it changing the users appearance: their markings, skin tone, and eyes.

I don’t think that Allura would ever take someones quintessence, she has a lot built up. Maybe if she was pushed to do so. found another Avatar parallel, blood bending

I had a dream a couple days ago about a Coldflashwave Hellboy fusion AU and it was super rad and super sad and would not leave my head until I drew it out and made Nikki color it XD

Mick was Hellboy, Len was Abe (who gave Mick his name because what kind of name is Hellboy and Mick is short for Micheal, and wouldn’t it be funny if the prince of hell was named after an angel?), Barry was Liz, Harry was Professor Broom, Lisa was Kate, I think, and Eobard was Rasputin. In the end I drew the scene right after Broom’s funeral when they’re all back in the empty shell of a house.

Len has the parka because he doesn’t believe in wearing clothing, Mick, but if I must just pick one and that was all Mick had on hand (Len now treasures it and the goggles he got later to protect his night vision with a fervor previously only seen in dragons).

Barry was thought to be the cause of his parents deaths, because of course in this timeline they burned. He claims he didn’t, that something else did, but the BPRD has never heard of another firestarter so Barry’s words must just be grief.

Wish we had more time to do more on this, but at least it’s out of my system for now >>:

so i’ve seen this theory floating around and the one thing i disagree with is the idea that allura had no knowledge about the black paladin. one of the main points is that allura “mistakenly” believes that the bayard was lost with its paladin and so she must not know who the original black paladin was but we have to consider: did she actually believe that or was she just lying to the paladins?

in ep10, the first thing that allura says when hunk finds her is this:

if she had no knowledge about the original black paladin, why would she immediately panic at the idea that voltron was in zarkon’s central command and then only ask about the black lion?

allura was princess of atlea and, as far as we know, the only child of king alfor. it’s highly possible that as heir to the throne she grew up 1) knowing about voltron and its paladins and 2) she knew zarkon before he began the galra empire.

You know, the show leads us to believe that Victor made his final decision to move to Japan after seeing Yuri skate. And like, given that the flight is a 16 hour one and yet he was in Japan the morning after it was posted, he must’ve seen it almost as soon as it was posted, and then hopped onto a plane almost immediately after.

But realistically speaking, it should have taken him a bare minimum of 2 weeks to get his visa approved, right?

So like, the logical conclusion is that he had come to the decision to make the move soon after the GPF banquet and that it had been pure coincidence that the video had been posted just before he left and that seeing him watching the video in the first episode was a red herring, to lead us to believe that’s why he came to Japan, so that we had a working motive up until we learned about the GPF Banquet in episode 10.

But the much funnier conclusion and the one I’ve decided to subscribe to is that this dork just packed up all his belongings, went to the Japanese embassy and blinked prettily at whoever was behind the desk until he got a business Visa, and then decided to deal with everything else after he’d met his one true love and gotten laid.

BMTH Announces a Tour Near Me

Me: I MUST GO
Me: *checks venue and date*
Me: Oh it’s a three hour drive
Me: and it’s a school day
Me: and the day I have important tests
Me: and I’m broke
Me: *cries*

When you are a child and you feel ignored, your brain has actually been programmed to ignore your feelings.
As you age, it will be the ‘norm’ to feel invisible.
And you will naturally feel invisible to your own Self.

You will struggle to ‘see your feelings’ and 'feel them’ and to ultimately be able to 'identify and claim’ these feelings as your own.
You will seek outward validation, cues, signals and signs as a means to help you clarify and justify what is happening inside of you.

This is a consequence of being raised by self absorbed parents.
To 'feel seen’ in an authentic way, we must be willing to 'see the self’ and learn how to embrace as well as shatter any illusion ever created that had us believing we were not good enough.

F**K that programming dear one!

You were always good enough, and when you understand this at your core–you can make the Self your new best friend.
You can be silly, and free because you know it’s okay to be you.

When you develop this self humility and self acceptance, you are able to attract people who can see the real you as well. When they say they love you, you can believe them because you are showing them who you really are. When you hide yourself, and people say they love you,
you will always doubt whether they do because on some level you will know you have hidden some aspect of you due to fearing what they may think of you.

Just be your true Self…own it–accept it…honor it–and don’t expect anyone to change you–and don’t expect anyone to change for you…just be you!

I was having a breakdown in our session today and she'd never seen me in that state. She asked what I needed and I said I didn't know, so she thought for a minute and said: "I think we need to get out. You must feel trapped in here. If you promise not to jump out of my car we can go for a ride and get Starbucks and just drive with the windows down." And we did just that for the rest of the session. I felt so much better by the time we got back. I still can't believe she did that for me :)

anonymous asked:

hey, there's something im pretty confused about. when mob says "I knew all along, you are a good person" does he mean that he's always known he's a good person, or does he specifically mean he knew that reigen was a fake since the beginning? or near it, anyway?

yes, mob has always seen reigen as a good person. he has never doubted this, not even during the lonely reigen arc; mob only quit his job at that time because he realized reigen’s advice might not always be helpful for him (after reigen said a mean, thoughtless thing), and because he believed reigen could get along just fine without him. even during the scandal surrounding reigen, mob thought it must be something reigen himself had orchestrated. mob has a lot of faith in reigen’s status as “a good person,” even when he doubts him.

as for whether mob knows reigen has no psychic powers… i think it’s meant to be ambiguous. if i have to choose one way or another, i’d say that mob does believe reigen has Some psychic powers, even to this day. i don’t think mob would decide for himself that reigen isn’t psychic in the slightest. he probably believes it’s a different Area of psychic power, like how he told tome that mob is an Esper but reigen is a Psychic, or like how mogami keiji could do ghost stuff but no telekinesis or anything. like, reigen must have a different area of specialty which he Only uses when mob is not around. however, we do also know that mob has been harboring doubts on the matter. (although that was in like chapter 2 and mob’s character was not very developed at that time.) most of the time, rather than voicing such doubts, mob probably just sits on them and lets them become part of the fuel that pushes his explosion meter toward 100%.

so yeah. mob thinks reigen is a good person. he thinks reigen has psychic powers of some kind. he does doubt that sometimes, but he rarely expresses such doubts. when he does, he isn’t persistent about it. and honestly, i don’t think mob necessarily cares whether reigen has psychic powers or not, because what he does have is a skill set that is entirely different from mob’s, and mob admires him for it.
