my attempt at a good photo

A Scarecrow For God

by reddit user survivalprocedure

“Can I take your picture?” Larissa sat a few feet away from me on the grey velvet sofa as I aimed my iPhone towards her. I stared at the screen intently for a moment before shifting my focus, looking over the brim of the phone at her defeated, hopeless state portrayed by bloodshot eyes.

Thoughts on the new gaming vid? They seemed so happy and cute and lighting has improved everything A++ ^_^

(faceapp)

  • 2 seconds in and i’m already shook i can’t believe this is real we are literally looking into their new house they are literally actually filming in a new HOUSE and it’s all just too much to process
  • phil sitting cross legged on the same old futon and fixing the tetris lights and balancing them and the pacman light on cardboard boxes is all too cute his enthusiasm is too much for me and dan definitely thinks it’s so cute too and this whole intro is just so soft
  • i love that phil owns up to the fact that this was his idea while dan is tryna go for his traditional ugh this is too stupid and vapid and too mainstream and not creative enough shtick. phil giving no fucks about a got damn quality threshold is my kink
  • when phil is attempting to take his neutral expression selfie and slightly pouts and he and dan giggle (i’m being generous w that term bc dan’s was more like a squawk tbh) at the exact same moment i just smiled so hard. they’re so cute. and they’re both apparently kind of uncomfortable w the notion of like trying to look sultry in photos which is why that pouty expression made them laugh immediately, and also is a good precursor to the whole discussion that comes later about phil’s ladybird selfie
  • dan’s look into the camera at 2:13 gave me lifeeeeee i like that he’s trying to shade phil for taking forever to get his fuckin selfie but instead he has this ever so subtle up tilt to his lips bc he can’t completely hide his smile ughaierjoaierj
  • omg underrated discussion in this video: at 2:26 once phil has finally succeeded in taking the selfie he turns to dan and says “i look alright there” but w the intonation of a question, like he’s literally asking dan for affirmation that he looks good and  not only that but he full on turns to look at dan and gauge his reaction and that felt so special and genuine to me??? like??? not a sort of thing i would expect to see tbh? and in general this video was obvi silly and just a bit of fun but also i thought the level of feedback they were giving each other on their photos and the way they were reacting was all so,,, warm and comfortable and surprisingly open. in this instance i’m also just frustrated bc dan was about to say something in response to phil asking dan if he looks alright, but he cuts himself off. he says ‘that’s an excep—’ and it def sounds like he was gonna say exceptional or exceptionally and i need to know what his thought was. i also like that the thought he interrupts himself with is about phil still having slight crazy eyes. we’ve talked about phil’s own explanation for his wide-eyed deer-in-headlights expressions in selfies a bit on this blog. according to him, he resorts to doing that bc having his photo taken makes him uncomfortable, so it was cute to me that dan noted that phil still did a little bit of the wide eyes without giving any context for why he was pointing it out bc it’s just an understood thing that they obvi have talked about a lot
  • 3:14 dan’s horrified and squeaky “what have they done to your face?” is so good. it’s just. so good. he sounds so outraged that they’ve fucked w phil’s face i lov it
  • 3:20 is the besttttttttt. this is the exchange where dan teases phil for being old and i love everything about it i love how dan made that comment without even thinking which sort of suggests that teasing phil for being old is just a regular/habitual thing and i love the way phil reacted bc it wasn’t rly irritated or even mock irritation in the end. instead he just played along w dan’s joke and accepted it and the whole exchange was so warmmmmmmm and comfortableeeeeee and flirtyyyyyyyyy and it reminds me of a few other comments that dan has made here and there that allude to their age gap and they’re always v cute and gentle teasing and it’s just so good
  • 3:42 they’re talking about the ‘old’ selfie and 1. dan is captivated and i can literally see him contemplating his future w phil lmao and 2. phil talking about joey graceffa and calling him good-looking w a blatant pause before he said that, making me wonder if he was going to use a word that was a bit more emphatic than “good-looking” either way i’m into it and then there’s a blatant jump cut and i’m wondering if they had a lil side conversation about joey being cute lol 3. phil is still looking at dan basically every time he makes a comment and it’s rly surprising but lovely 4. dan needed to come in w that compliment about old phil rocking current phil’s fringe and how cool he looks :) 
  • here’s dan howell caught right in the act of contemplating growing old w phil:
  • bless them for calling out how dumb the concept of a “female” filter is. also dan’s once again violent reaction to phil in the female filter is so cute and funny i love how incensed he is with the whole concept of anything being different about phil’s face
  • 5:36 dan looking at phil in the male filter and saying “you look so average” in such a disappointed tone is rly one of the best fucking things i’ve ever seen in my life. i’ve often thought about dan’s attraction to phil being based in some of the things that are most striking about his appearance. for example he always talks about how black phil’s hair is and how pale his skin is and back in the day he obvi left that infamous comment on phil’s dailybooth about how blue his eyes are and i feel like dan is probs drawn to these features that are just,,, extreme,,, and i love that even a slight change to phil’s jawline/face shape made dan think phil looked decidedly more average precisely bc what he loves about phil’s face are all the things that aren’t average at all!!!! i’m emotional!!
  • phil was so hype to see all of dan’s ones!!!! i’m crying!!!!! the way he was doing his hee-hee laughs and bouncing up and down quite literally and like hitting his hands on the table and saying things like i wanna be friends w him instead of you and ‘i wanna see old danny! old danny slice!!!’ like calm down mate!!!!! ur cute!!! we know u think dan is cute!!! y do u love every single version of him so much!!!! when he sees the old one he immediately says he likes it and compliments it!!!!! when he sees the old one on the daniel x dream pic he calls him cute!!!!!! and then makes this face at dan while dan looks at it!!!!!! 
  • help!!!!
  • dan talking about embracing makeup was amazing and phil being totally down with it and immediately suggesting a smoky eye look and consulting some tutorials was also amazing and i hope thats something they’ve discussed before tbh
  • dan @ manly dan: ‘i mean i would.’ nice. dancest is real and it’s right before our eyes ppl
  • 8:28 dan saying he hates his current profile picture was so surprising and lovely when he gave his reason—it doesn’t reflect his natural curls. i’m honestly so pleased to hear that he views the natural hair as such an important change for him that he wants his display pic (something we know he spends way too much time thinking about and therefore treats as an incredibly important thing) to reflect this shift
  • 9:05 ahhhh the controversial dan reactions to phil’s ladybird selfie. here’s the thing. i think when dan says it’s a “really cringe selfie” he’s talking about the discomfort they both feel about doing posed/sultry shots. he corrects himself after phil protests that it’s not cringe to saying it’s only slightly cringe instead of really cringe, and that he should’ve included an ironic (i hate dan’s use of the word ironic so much bc he often uses it when what he really means is “sarcastic” or, in this case, self-deprecating/humorous) caption. when phil then says that he did use a funny caption, dan basically entirely revokes his criticism and says that phil actually “nailed it” w the photo/caption combination. basically i think both of them get embarrassed about the idea of unabashedly posing in an attractive way for photos and since they’re so close dan feels that embarrassment for phil as well. i don’t think he was saying he actually dislikes the selfie or that phil looks bad or unattractive or anything negative about phil himself. the only comment i did find questionable was when he almost said that the smile filter was an improvement!!! it seemed weird when compared to how much he disliked all the alterations to phil’s face on the first picture lol but then he also made fun of it so i didn’t take it to mean that dan literally thought the filter is an improvement to phil’s real face, just that it was pretty remarkable how cleanly the filters worked on that particular selfie
  • overall: really liked this!!!!!!! such a good intro to the new office!!! such a warm and chill lil vid where they were mostly casual and just being so soft and flirty w each other and basically calling each other cute in creative ways whats not to love about that it was great
My Calgary Expo Experience

Okay guys so I’m still kind of dying. Today (probably yesterday by the time this goes up) was kind of amazing and I can’t believe that I met Bob Morley BUT I’M GOING TO ATTEMPT TO SHARE THE AWESOMENESS WITH YOU ALL.

Apparently recap posts about cons are a thing and I still can’t believe that I actually have reason to write one!!

I only decided to go on the Sunday because I could fit in the photo op, autograph signing, and panel all in one day so I felt that it was a good option, so I don’t know much about anything that happened on any of the other days.

It was sooo incredible. Bob is just … wow. 

He just has the most adorable personality. And we all probably know this because you don’t need to meet him to be able to tell but he really does. As my friend who was with me likes to say, he’s all “soft and squish” hahahaha.

I was so so so nervous when we first walked into the autograph line (which was not very long at all because we came on the last day, and we also came early) and we were, like, two feet away from him because the line looped around. It was so weird. I still can’t believe that I was that close to him, let alone actually TALKED to him, and TOUCHED him. 

Also I’m about 99% sure that I saw Robyn from the Afictionados podcast in the line ahead of me because she has a very distinctive voice and I heard her mention Unity Days but I was too shy to talk to her and I wasn’t 100% it was her until later but anyway SHOUTOUT TO ROBYN IF YOU’RE READING THIS WHICH YOU PROBABLY AREN’T BUT IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT YOU ARE JUST KNOW THAT I REALLY LIKE YOUR PODCAST AND I’M REALLY AWKWARD SO I DIDN’T TELL YOU IN PERSON

anyway ..

Bob is just amazing because he was out in front of his table instead of behind it like basically all the other guests. It was really neat, he’s very interactive with the fans and likes to be very personal with everyone. He shook everyone’s hand that came to get an autograph and introduced himself (AS IF I DON’T KNOW WHO YOU ARE) and asked how we were doing and he was just so polite and cute and ugghh. I’ve never been to a con before but my friend was telling me how usually the autograph signing is very quick and they get you in and out of there very fast but Bob was so sweet and generous and took his time with everyone, actually attempting to have a real conversation with the fans. 

The people before us were taking a video of him which is prohibited apparently and the security guy there was getting mad at them but Bob was like “oh, I don’t mind …” and he looked kind of uncomfortable (about the security guy, not the fans). 

He shaved his beard the night before and my friend was hEARTBROKEN because she LOVED it, haha. I think he looks nice either way, but I kind of prefer him cleanshaven so I was happy. HE PLAYS WITH HIS HAIR SO MUCH. And I swear that boy has an entire closet dedicated just to his various hats, its like every time I saw him he was wearing a different one.

My friend was a little starstruck so I ended up doing a lot of the conversation, but honestly I barely processed most of what he was saying. I mentioned that Zach talked about filming a movie with him at a recent con and asked him if he could share a little bit about it. He laughed and said that he was surprised Zach had said anything because they were supposed to be secretive about it so he didn’t really say anything more than what I already knew. He talked about how he was going to be filming in Malaysia pretty soon (which I already knew cause i’m extra lol) and how he hadn’t spent a whole lot of time prepping for the role so he needed to do some of that beforehand. It was fine that he couldn’t say much about it though because I was mostly just trying to keep the conversation going so I didn’t spontaneously combust and/or faint in his arms … you know, the usual.

My friend was dressed up as Season 2 Octavia (with the warpaint) and I had a really crappy cosplay of Season 1 Clarke going on hahahaha. Basically I couldn’t find a jacket (and i have no idea how to make one) so I just had like the shirt and the watch and the hair and stuff so it wasn’t anything special. Most people probably thought I wasn’t dressed up at all. When I walked up to Bob he went “WOW that’s a big watch” cause my wrists are really tiny I guess haha. I don’t really know if he knew if I was Clarke or not. 

He started both of our autographs with “Dearest [name]” instead of just “Dear” or writing only our names, which I thought was adorable. It’s such a Bob thing to do - or at least something I would expect from him. He also put two x’s at the end.

I didn’t end up getting anything special signed because I couldn’t think of anything super creative, so I just chose one of their prints instead. They were nice though. 

When he saw my friend’s print that she’d chosen he went “wow I was so tan” and I kind of laughed because he’s still really tan and his skin is so nice haha, but meanwhile I’m white as hell and can’t tan for the life of me

Then we both took photos with him. I always see people talking about Bob smelling really nice and I was like “okay” because I don’t tend to talk about how people smell BUT HE ACTUALLY DOES OKAY. lol I know that seems weird, I don’t know how to describe the smell but its a thing, guys, all right?

Afterwards we looked around a bit at the convention and waited to head to Bob’s panel at 12:00. I ran into a few friends who I haven’t seen in awhile which was kind of nice. It was super packed. There were a lot more people who showed up to see Bob than I was expecting, but it was nice to see so many people coming together. :) The panel was 45 minutes but it went by soooooooo fast. The moderator kept asking Bob to expand on his questions basically, which ended up eating up a lot of time so I didn’t get to ask the question about Jasper and Bellamy that I wanted to, which was kind of disappointing. 

I was being so extra though, waving my hand in the hair and everything, trying to get her attention. I made eye contact with Bob because he saw me but then the woman picked someone else and it was really sad lol. I raised my hand EVERY SINGLE TIME. But I was ignored. 

*sigh*

NEXT TIME.

They were really strict about there being no videos so I couldn’t really get any, which is unfortunate, and I wasn’t close enough to get very good quality photos so I won’t post any of them here. If you have any questions about some things people are spreading about the panel or want confirmation about some stuff Bob said, just hit me up and I’ll hopefully clear some things for you because I know that the truth often gets skewed a little at conventions. Its like the fandom is playing a little game of telephone, except online.

Bob is soooo cute and endearing and funny, so I really enjoyed the panel. I know a lot of people have been posting about stuff that Bob but I’ll point out the stuff I remember anyway

  • Someone asked Bob was his favourite episode/scene was and Bob said that his favourite episode is yet to air, and that it really delves into Bellamy’s “psyche”, which he liked, so I’m super excited to see that. I do wonder if he’s referring to 4x10, actually, since the promo seems pretty Bellamy heavy and it’s written by Aaron who tends to write Bellamy pretty well, I think. We’ll see!
  • There’s a video of the Bellarke question going around which, to be perfectly honest, isn’t much different from anything else that he’s said. He apparently ~ doesn’t know ~ if they’ll go the romantic path but he believes that they have a very “special relationship” that is deeper than any romance. It’s not in the video that I’ve seen going around but he also said that Bellamy and Clarke have a certain understanding and honesty which he believes is definitely a good place to start to build a relationship on, if they were planning on going that route.
  • He said something that I really haven’t seen talked about at all, but both I and my friend thought was a little odd when we heard it. I think the question was asking what scenes with Bellamy were most difficult or something like that but he said “the romantic side I find very hard to play”, which I thought was kind of interesting because Bellamy hasn’t really had any romantic partners besides Gina very very briefly. Idk if that’s who he was referring to? *side eyes emoji* Take it with a grain of salt in any case.
  • Bob joked about how Bellamy gets beat up so often because he’s “been told that [Bob] sells hits really well” lol. He also said that he maybe takes punches a little too well because when Octavia was beating him up in 3x10 he got too into it and accidentally fell through the wall of the set and broke it.
  • The moderator pointed out that it’s remarkable how well some characters have recovered from being impaled and he made a cheeky little comment about how “it’s science guys!” because we all know just how accurate the science on this show is hahaha
  • Someone asked Bob how he and Bellamy are similar and he responded by saying that he was loyal to his family and that the similarities “start and finish there”. He talked about how Bellamy is so much more aggressive than he is and how he wouldn’t go around killing people. The moderator then asked him if he thought he would ever be capable of doing something like that and Bob went “NOOOOOOOO! I don’t have that in me, its ACTING!”. He sounded so offended, it was really funny, especially since Bob is so cute and pure so it just sounded bizarre when she asked that.
  • Apparently during the scene where Pike sentences Kane to death Mike Beach and Henry Ian Cusick had a solid 15 minute argument about whose side Bellamy should be on and Bob just decided to leave the room after awhile. Bob was just like “okay I’m just going to walk out and you two can decide which one of you is my dad”.
  • Bob enjoys doing fight scenes “because its always kind of exciting to feel like you’re tough, even though you’re not” (he laughed after he said that) and he also enjoyed doing the Bellamy speeches because he thought that they felt cool and kind of empowering to feel like you have the power to actually influence someone else, since there aren’t many opportunities for that in real life.
  • Since he likes fight scenes, he joked about how he always would ask “can’t I at least try and put up a fight”  and he also said that Bellamy tends to take more beatings than he gives now because Bellamy feels like he deserves to be beaten up for what he’s done.
  • In the scene where he found out that Octavia “died” apparently Bob went full out and was banging his head against the bars and actually got a cut all along his forehead because he was so into it.
  • He was asked if it ever hurt his vocal cords to talk so low in Bellamy’s voice and he joked that it’s painful when he has to scream all the time at such a low octave. He also talked about why Bellamy’s voice was so low, because he was really hungover when they shot the Pilot and when he saw the video he went back and was really surprised and he just kind of had to roll with it from there on out. I’ve heard that story before but it was cool to hear Bob talk about it in person.
  • I know we all love to talk about the drastic difference in pitch between Bellamy and Bob’s voice but I’m telling you that its something else to hear it in person instead of just in a video. The change is SO dramatic.
  • One time when Bellamy had to do a big speech in Season 1, Bob had a really bad cold and he couldn’t speak properly so he was kind of screeching and messing up and he said it was really “embarassing” and so frustrating that he actually started to cry. The whole crowd went “aWWWWWwwwWWWWW” when he said that and he was like “yeah, yeah, I know, I know” all bashful and it was really cute.
  • He talked about how he would rather be judged for his “content” versus his physique and he said “maybe its not even me to feel that way” which made me sad, and then he said that he now recognizes that being judged for his appearance comes with the job sometimes.
  • Bob says that he likes polarizing the audience but that some people on social media can’t seem to separate him from Bellamy and he joked about all these people who meet him and are just like “I hate your character but, you know, you’re okay” and I was honestly like WHO DO I HAVE TO FIGHT COME AT ME
  • If he could bring back anyone he said he would bring back Pike and someone yelled “WHYYYY????” and Bob talked about how he caused lots of chaos and whatnot which was interesting, to which the mod was like “they already have enough chaos” and then Bob responded with “what’s wrong with a little chaos?” and I died. nOT like that’s one of the most iconic lines of Season 1 or anything ..
  • He also said he thought bringing Finn back would be interesting because “his moral compass is very different from Clarke and Bellamy’s” 
  • When he was a kid he wanted to be a stuntman and he would bite into ceramic plates because he thought that’s what they did, lol. Bob just went, “SO stupid” after he described it haha
  • I CAN’T BELIEVE I FORGOT. He joked a ton about his hair and how the apocalypse is great for the characters’ hair. He talked about how the hair team is great and how Bellamy has “great hair game” in Season 4, but that all seems to change after Bob finishes filming and he doesn’t really do anything with it. He’s very self-deprecating
  • Bob says that when he struggles in getting into Bellamy’s headspace a lot of the time he just starts thinking about lunch because that’s what Mike Beach told him to do, hahahahaha. He also talked about how there’s “a lot of stupid stuff” going around in Bellamy’s head a lot of the time.
  • He said that he likes to do rock climbing, but a lot of the time he just ends up playing video games instead.
  • He finds Octavia and Bellamy’s storyline together this season “heartbreaking”.
  • He says his scenes with Eliza are “always really great” because they’re very “emotional” and he gets to cry lol
  • Apparently Bob is like one of two people who actually knows how to drive the rover because its stick shift and its “impossible”.
  • One girl that was picked said “sorry” and Bob was like “what are you apologizing for?” and the moderator was like “it’s the Canadian way” or something along those lines but the girl was just like “cause I’m so awkward” and the whole time i was thinking girl SAME i feel you
  • Bob says playing Bellamy has changed his real voice. He thinks his voice has “dropped down because of it” even when he’s not playing Bellamy.
  • Bob said that one of his friends tried to get him to compete in a smashbrothers competition and he went but he said it was really intense so he was like “no, no, no, I’m going to stay home and be the king of my own house”
  • Bob doesn’t like sitting behind the table when signing autographs because he “feels weird” about it and enjoys interacting with fans because he feels that social media is really “devoid of connection” and he’s “just a normal person” like the rest of us, which was sweet. <3
  • Bob says that “I’m very loving but I’m very pragmatic” when referring to Bellamy (not himself)
  • Bob loves Bellamy soo much and he is super protective of him (like us!). He says that when people don’t like Bellamy sometimes he’s just like “oh well let’s talk about this, maybe I can talk you around” but it doesn’t usually work haha
  • He said that he went to a play in Australia because William Mcinnes, who he really loves, was in it but he didn’t know what it was about and it turned out be about IVF treatment lol and he was like “yeah that was kinda weird […] maybe I should have read the plot first …”

After the panel we looked around at all the merchandise but there was barely anything for The 100, which wasn’t all that surprising. I honestly didn’t expect to find anything, but we stumbled completely by accident onto this jewelry stand and we saw one necklace for The 100 and started freaking out because we couldn’t find any The 100 merch ANYWHERE and the lady heard us and told us that she sold stuff at Unity Days so she’d designed an entire jewelry line for The 100 and showed us her collection.

It was so awesome. She makes all these neat little themed charm bracelets for all shows, so there was one for Lost, and OUAT and Supernatural and all that, which was nice but she had a whole COLLECTION for The 100, with themed bracelets for almost all the individual characters. I remember seeing something similar online, maybe even the same ones, and had told my friend earlier that I thought they were cool.

I DEFINITELY wasn’t expecting to actually find them. 

My friend bought the Bellamy one and I bought the Raven one, because I personally thought that the Raven one was more true to the character than the other one (but they were both really cute!). I’m not one for fandom merch so it was kind of exciting for me to buy something. 

Here’s a pic of my Raven bracelet: 

And here’s my friends Bellamy bracelet:

Later we went to go get our photo ops with Bob, which we did individually. It was very fast-paced so we didn’t get to spend much time with him or anything but I was actually surprisingly relaxed and calm the second time I saw him? Idk he’s just so humble and down-to-earth and he really makes you feel comfortable around him, so I wasn’t nearly as nervous as I was earlier. 

When he saw my friend and I he was just like “hello again” and I thought it was cute that he remembered us, after meeting hundreds of individual people!

I just took a regular photo with him, no special poses or anything, because I felt weird asking for anything different. But to be honest I wish that I asked him for a hug, because I saw a girl go before us who did and her photo ended up looking REALLY good and now I’m super jealous, dammit. 

NEXT TIME. 

(I feel like I’m making a lot of promises to myself in this post, hmmmmmm)

Anyways, after we got the photo he turned to me and said “thank you!” and I was just thinking WHY ARE YOU THANKING ME??? YOU JUST MADE MY ENTIRE EXISTENCE, THANK YOU!

So that was my experience seeing Bob. I’m so far from over it and just looking at the pictures makes me feel all light and happy. He’s such a great person and you can tell that he’s not just putting an act or a show for the benefit of his fans, he’s truly genuine! 

Now I know what people mean when they talk about how after they meet some of the cast, they just want to do it again the next day. I’ve got the con fever, I want to go to another one so bad (but of course I’m infinitely grateful that I got to see him in person at all, because it was such an incredible experience)! Bob is so sweet and adorable and KIND (like I’ve reiterated half a million times) and deserves everything amazing in the world, I don’t know make the rules, k?

And there’s just something so … amazing about cons. No one there is judging you, everyone there is a shameless nerd as well, haha, and its such a safe space for fans to go and meet celebrities, guests, and each other. Whenever my friend and I saw anyone wearing The 100 merch or cosplaying as someone from The 100, we always got so excited. Because there are ACTUAL REAL PHYSICAL people in front of us who are just as obsessed as we are, and you don’t get that connection through TV. Everyone is so friendly and accepting, complimenting each other’s costumes and whatnot. The community is just amazing

Here’s hoping that I get to experience this again, and that any of you who haven’t yet get to as well! Everyone deserves to go to a con and have as much fun as I did. :)

Not sure if I’m going to post my photos with him because I’m really weird about posting photos of myself on the internet. I guess I’m just paranoid that someone I know will stumble across it, or my fandom days will come back to haunt me in twenty years or so and someone will pull up my photograph and my account with my dramatic ass screaming about Bellarke and Bellamy Blake and all that and judge me for the rest of my life. We’ll see. Maybe BFSN??

I’ll consider it. ;)

anonymous asked:

I am sorry if you have already done this or similar but can you do 707 and Saeran's reaction to finding out they and MC are having triplets?

Ooohhhh, okay!

707

  • “Saeyoung, you know that I’m pregnant… And we thought it was twins…?”
  • “Huh? Y- Yeah, what about it…?”
  • “Well… We were wrong about it being twins…”
  • MC presented Seven with a picture of an ultrasound scan, before she stood behind him and started pointing at the photo from over his shoulder.
  • “One little Choi… Two little Chois…” She took a deep breath, before giggling quietly. “And three little Chois.”
  • Seven’s eyes widened, before MC noticed that… he was crying.
  • “Seven…?” She turned him around to face him, and that was when he broke down in tears as he fell into her. “Saeyoung!”
  • “H- Hello, little Chois… I’m dad…” He laughed quietly at the attempt at a dad joke as he sank to his knees, and rested his hand on MC’s already quite round stomach. “I- I’m… I’m going to do my best to give all three of you a better life than that of me and your uncle Saeran… Daddy’s promise…”
  • He kept crying for a good few days after that, but MC’s heart swelled with joy when she noticed that Saeyoung had set the ultrasound scan photo as his desktop backgrounds, phone wallpapers, and the original photo was framed on the desk that he worked at.

Saeran

(I’m assuming post-secret ending here)

  • MC knew that Saeran was still trying to come to terms with the fact that he was going to be a dad, and trying to get over the fear that he wouldn’t be able to cope because of the abuse he was put through as a child… But she had no idea over how he was going to cope with hearing this news.
  • Because of that, she decided to do what she could to soften the blow of the news to Saeran.
  • She took him to an ice cream parlour and let him get as much ice cream as he wanted in any flavours, and also did little things such as buy him things to help out with the little hobbies he had picked up over the past few months such as doodling.
  • After that, when he was drinking a chocolate milkshake and was eating his raspberry ripple ice cream… MC took a deep breath, and pushed the ultrasound photo across the table towards him.
  • “Whash tha?” He mumbled, his mouth half-filled with ice cream.
  • With a sigh, she then put on the best smile that she could before pointing to the photo.
  • “Saeran… Those are our babies.”
  • “… Okay.”
  • MC was shocked that he had responded quite bluntly, before the little wooden spoon fell out of his hand.
  • Babies?! As in plural?! MORE THAN ONE?!” 
  • Everyone in the shop was staring at the two of them then, before MC shakily nodded, and pointed the three individual babies on the photos.
  • “… T- Triplets…”
  • After that, she was crying, and Saeran didn’t know what to do.
  • But he quickly made up his mind when he realised that MC was genuinely really upset, presumably because she thought that he didn’t want triplets.
  • No, he was actually really happy but wasn’t sure on how was appropriate to react.
  • Saeran then scooped up some ice cream, and pushed it against MC’s lips.
  • “You’ve got four people to feed now… You’re gonna have to eat a lot.”
  • MC then laughed quietly between her tears as she accepted the spoonful of ice cream.
  • She knew that Saeran was going to be a great father to all three of their little babies.

Selfie: The Castro. San Francisco, 05-28-17.

I am more comfortable now taking photos in public places, especially when I am shooting strange things that usually people would not think of photographing. However, while I took this photo (I really took 10 photos, just to make certain at least one was good), I felt ridiculous, imagining that people walking by thought I was some kind of fool. Then I looked at my reflection, really took a second to make sense of what I saw, and realized that I did look like a fool, particularly a dirty minded old fool, and that was when this attempt at making myself into a joke became fun.

Sometimes it is cool to be a fool.

8. “Go to hell.”

15. “It doesn’t matter. You’ve moved on and I have to be okay with that.”

16. “Do you wish things had happened differently?”

LOL ANON ASKING FOR SOME SERIOUS ANGST. BUCKLE UP KIDS. SORRY THIS TOOK SO LONG BUT IT’S 2100 WORDS I GOT CARRIED AWAY. ENJOY.

IT’S BLURB NIGHT BITCHES


Four months was a long time. The seasons had changed from the bitter dry cold of January to the damp mildness of April. I thought the warmth might make things better, but the melting of snow just revealed the dead grass underneath, the litter that had piled up and been hidden by the white of winter. Things were the same.

We’d broken up on New Year’s Day. New Year’s Eve was a confusing blur of overwhelming crowds and saying the wrong thing and missing the midnight kiss. I was crying on a curb when the ball dropped. I don’t know where Shawn was. The next morning we met up at a small coffee shop and he broke up with me in the corner booth, by the window. We’d drifted apart, he claimed. Neither of us felt the same way we did when we started going out three years earlier. We had to grow up. He had to focus on his music, I had to focus on school. Or so he told me. I wasn’t really listening though. I was stuck wondering when he’d figured this all out. Was there a specific moment he realized he didn’t love me anymore? Did he wake up in a cold sweat wondering why he was still sleeping beside me? Surely he’d dwelled on this decision for a while, so when did he come to a conclusion? How many times did he look me in the eye and tell me he loved me since realizing he didn’t anymore? Four months later and I was still dwelling on that.

Found this old photo the other day and I thought I’d do a bit of a comparison from then and now. I wish I hadn’t attempted to dye my hair ginger and get it cut like Hayley Williams, I did not suit it at all and I don’t know why I thought it looked good. At least I don’t dye my hair myself now and my makeup is kind of okay now (at least I think I know what I’m doing and I actually have eyebrows now?) and I somewhat know how to dress myself properly now. A lot has changed since this photo was taken and I can’t believe that I was 16 in that photo

my greatest achievement in life is somehow getting misha collins to smile like this in my photo op with him and jared padalecki. for a lot of the photos i’ve taken with misha at the two other spn cons i went to last year, he has NEVER smiled like this and i can’t help but feel so giddy every time i look through these memories.

the moment i walked up to the two of them, i smiled and looked both misha and jared in the eye and asked for a tight sandwich hug. jared grinned and surprised me by reaching out to wrap his arm around my front to drag me into him but i abruptly threw my arms out and struggled to turn to face misha (they were standing SO CLOSE). as soon as i turn and look up, i see misha smiling at me and the next thing i know he’s thrown his arms around my shoulders and i’ve got a face full of misha’s jacket. i huff out a laugh and drag my arms up to hug him and as i’m struggling to turn my face to look at chris and the camera, jared is crowding in behind me and pressing me firmly into misha and that’s about the time misha straightens his back and steps even closer and i feel the full length of his body against mine.

let me just say that is a memory i won’t be forgetting any time soon, god bless.

so i somehow manage to turn my head despite misha and jared attempting to remain balanced when chris takes the photo. i tell them thanks when they let go but i barely take one step before a creation staff approaches me and tells me they need to do a retake. i’m torn between laughing and crying (what a strange emotion). so she places me back in line a few girls behind the front and i’m left wondering if this was the universe’s way of giving me a good birthday present. after chatting with one of the iamalive volunteers (jokingly explaining to her how it was misha’s fault that i felt like i was having heart palpitations), i’m suddenly standing in front of jared and misha again. they each give me a confused look and i can only offer them a grin and a shrug and say, “apparently someone blinked?”

jared jokingly points at misha and when i look over at misha, he’s smiling and raising his arms for another hug. i grin and cling to him as he and jared get into the exact same postion as before (misha once again felt the need to curve into me and press as close to me as he could, dear god help me) but this time there was less off-balanced wobbling and a more secure ribs-crushing hug. chris snaps the photo again and i’m walking away with a whole new perspective on things.

i adore misha collins so much, he’s been the light in my life for years now. for my birthday, he’s given me one of the best gifts i’ve ever gotten: his beautiful smile. ❤❤❤❤

jade.tailor: I realize I never post photos without makeup. Maybe subconsciously, maybe somewhat consciously… Throughout my life I never felt good enough. As most of us experience at one point or another. Often times because of our upbringing or what we experienced as children we start to believe that we are not enough as we are. I can tell you from my childhood (one of many reasons), I was made fun of quite a bit by many of the kids in my middle school. Because of that I never felt like I was enough just as I was. Always attempting to prove my worthiness or trying to “be perfect” so that I would be accepted by others. Over the years I’ve stopped trying to prove myself and simply just be ME. I’m not perfect. No one is. But that in and of itself is perfect. We are all made as these beautifully unique individuals. Perfectly imperfect beings. I hope this inspires you to take of your mask and allow your true self to shine through. #nomakeup #beyou #perfectlyimperfect

EXO OT9 Reaction: Meeting You for the First Time and Developing a Crush

Intro: You’re working together for a magazine cover as his photographer.
A/N: if you guys want ill had lutaoris on the weekend 😁

Masterlists

Minseok (Xiumin):

Of course, during the actual photo shoot he’d try his best to stay professional, but when everything’s done and over he’d go over and chat with you. Expect to go home with his number in your phone and vice versa.

“Hey… could I have your number? For business purposes, of course.”

Originally posted by secrethideoutme

Junmyeon (Suho):

When he walked in, he’d grow somewhat shy at the sight of you. Since it’s a professional photo shoot, he’d stay his best to stay serious but unintentionally end up messing up the photos by making weird faces. When you’d call him out, he’d laugh nervously and hide behind a few staff members for a bit.

“Haha– I’m doing this wrong? Are you sure? Ah, I’m sorry!”

Originally posted by baekhyeonah

Yixing (Lay):

Yixing would actually go up to you before the shoot and straight up tell you he finds you attractive subtle During the shoot he may wink at you or distract you when you’re working with others but then act innocent when you call him out. He’d feel really embarrassed about it later though.

“What do you mean stop lifting my shirt? I’m not doing anything.”

*yw and im not sorry for this gif*

Baekhyun:

His beagle side would come out more than usual He’d start acting really extra just to get your attention even though he may get scolded for not taking the shoot seriously. When the shoot’s over, like Minseok, he’d ask for your number.

*playing with his clothes* “Look, Y/N, I’m an elephant!”

Originally posted by ethereal-baek

Jongdae (Chen):

I think he’d get lowkey shy. Not in the same sense as Junmyeon or Kyungsoo, but he’d get a bit insecure about how he looks and would even ask others if he looked alright. In front of you, however, he would appear confident. 

“Do I look okay? I mean– I look great today, wow.”

Originally posted by kaisanity

Chanyeol:

His first reaction when he saw you was probably “whoa.” Just imagine him staring at you with an ‘o’ shaped mouth in admiration. He would try harder than usual to pose well in order to impress you, but probably wouldn’t say anything about it.

“Ah, they’re really attractive…”

Originally posted by sehunsyixing

Kyungsoo (D.O):

Shy bean. He may stumble with his words when you’re giving him advice on posing and would cringe at himself (even though you think it’s cute). At the end of the shoot, you would compliment him and he could’ve died right there. Actor!Soo would come out and he would try to initiate a calm conversation with you.

“So… how long have you been a photographer…?”

Originally posted by jonginssoo

Jongin (Kai):

He’d be a soft flirt. Before the shoot, he’d go up to you and compliment you but then run away like a shy school girl before you can properly react. He’d grin at you between shots and after the shoot he might ask you to go get coffee with him.

“You’re quite a good photographer. Want to get coffee later?”

Originally posted by dazzlingkai

Sehun:

He’d attempt to act normally around you but would unintentionally end up staring at you when he’s not getting his photo taken. You’d probably notice and smile at him, which would immediately make him all smiley and shy but he’d try to play it cool. He would also ask you for your number, but would end up rambling.

“Hey, I’m Sehun– wait, you knew that already– I’m from EXO– you knew that too– can I have your number? Please?”

Okay, so first attempt complete!

Here’s some Draco Malfoy-inspired cupcakes (credit goes to @bixgirl1 for the bomb af flavor profile idea): champagne-chiffon cupcakes filled with strawberry pastry cream topped with champagne-rose meringue!

Forgive the terrible quality of the photos, please… I’m still looking for my camera, and when I find it, I will post something better. :’(

I’m taking them to some frands, so I will report back on if they taste like Draco (… or at least if they taste good, because I’m pretty sure there’s only one person that actually knows what Draco *tastes* like, if you know what I mean).

EXO reacts to you making ugly faces while taking selfies.

ANON ASKED “Exo react to you making ugly faces while taking selfies?”

GOOD NEWS I HAVE FINISHED MY EXAMS! This means I can finally get back to doing reactions and drabbles!


Xiumin - Xiumin and you were going out on a nice date and he wanted to take a picture with you. However, you weren’t cooperating, every time he snapped a picture you pulled a funny face. On his fifth attempt, he raised his eyebrow at you, which caused you to laugh. He then quickly took a photo where both of you were laughing.

Shuo - You and your friend were taking a weird selfie together and Suho walked in and decided to photo bomb you in the background.

Originally posted by yehet-a-kookie

Lay - You were on a game show where you and another celebrity were pitted against each other in a game. When you lost the game, the consequences were for you to take a very bad selfie and post it to your (insert social media platform of your choice). Lay was the celebrity you were pitted against, and when you took the picture, he couldn’t stop laughing.

Baekhyun - You two were bored at home and you whipped out snap-chat and you both started to take photos with the filters. 

Originally posted by exoturnback

Chen- As a prank, you grabbed Chen’s phone when he was on the toilet and took many ugly photos of yourself. It wasn’t until later when he got a notification that his storage was all used up. You were in the other room and heard your name being shouted.

Originally posted by everybodyloveschen

Chanyeol - you were taking a photo of your self, and Chanyeol walked in and at the same time you both dabbed.

Originally posted by yeollovemebaek

Kyungsoo - You were known to pull faces when taking selfies, and at times Kyungsoo would join in. However, he enjoyed watching you pull your faces which caused you both to laugh.

Kai - “the gif”

Sehun - Like Xiumin, you two were supposed to be going on a date. However, instead of him tying to cause to laugh, he pulled a funny face with you.

(all photos by bunny-speak)

This is my Rose Quartz cosplay. I wore it to AnimeNEXT in June, and have never in my life felt more accepted, beautiful, and at home in my body. I want to thank my cosplay partners,  bunny-speak and elyseexplosion, for their help on this costume, ghostcowboy for calming me down every time I thought I wasn’t good enough to cosplay, and averyfatopossum for being so enthusiastically supportive of me even attempting this. 

This costume was hand-made. Every curl on the wig I put there. Every stitch on the dress either bunny-speak or I sewed. My father helped built the sword. elyseexplosion helped me spray paint. I hand-painted all the details. It took months, but it all came together and to me, it is absolutely perfect.

From the moment I stepped out of our hotel room door, I felt a wholeness I had never really felt before. I felt that people were looking at me and not seeing a monster. Every time someone asked for a picture of me, I knew it wasn’t to mock me later. I could look people in the eye and feel like I was worth something when I was Rose. Rose is huge. Rose is beautiful. I am huge.

So, to Rebecca Sugar, and all of the crewniverse, THANK YOU. Thank you for giving me, and anyone like me, someone beautiful and kind and bright and shining to look up to. Someone who isn’t the butt of every joke, someone who isn’t seen as repulsive. Someone who is, most importantly, loved. Thank you for giving us a giant woman who is shown as worthy of love and respect. I’ve never been able to cosplay comfortably before because I’ve never in my life seen a character that looked remotely like me that wasn’t a joke. Thank you for Steven Universe. Thank you for Rose Quartz. 

I finally got my copics and the short story is i got what i paid for; cheap versions of a good thing. Blending is possible if not a little difficult. My main complaint is how relentlessly they bleed, I was even careful to color a bit away from my lines but to no avail, they found a way out!! I’m not going to get too discouraged seeing as this was my first experience with them and they’re an inferior quality version, so more attempts are in the future

july 6th, 2016. - mini stationery haul with @officiallystudying

i think we spent hours circling the tiny store, deciding on what to give up and what was worth it, and looking at the ever so glorious!!! stationery.

the panda stickies are for my best friend ellyssa, and the string is to attempt making friendship bracelets while i still have time :)

also!! the limited edition pilot juice pen not only smells nice, ive realised that the ink flows way more smoothly and is easier to write with than the regular ones. ^^ hope you all are having a good day!

mornings with calum

waking up with the left side of your bed empty and cold, always made your heart speed up. what if calum had left you alone? but as soon as you heard the clinging noises from the kitchen or the small grumbles from calum as he tried to make breakfast you smirked to yourself, knowing that in any minute he would walk in with coffee and pancakes. you pretended to sleep, even though you both know that you had woken up from his loud attempts on making food. he would just kinda hand you the black coffee and pour the milk in without saying a word. whenever he had time off he would always make sure to spoil you in the cheesiest ways. he would turn on the tv, still not saying anything  to you but as soon as the tiny noises from the television appeared in the bedroom, he would pull you close to his chest, whispering “good morning princess” in your ear.

1800s lil Allura and Alfor! I had a lot of fun with their color schemes. I debated leaving out their face markings but tbh I can’t imagine either of them without it so they’re just there for aesthetic. 

In this AU Alfor and Zarkon were more middling East Coast business partners who ended their partnership on less-than good terms. After the Civil War Zarkon gained prominence in the railroad industry, and Alfor attempted to move west to start a new life with his daughter. However, he was suspiciously assassinated upon his arrival in California.
