my feelings for these three are just

I didn’t realize how much I was missing this field until we set foot in it – immediately, that spirit-soaring feeling, light and movement flooding you, in you and out of you and around you.

anonymous asked:

obviously i love all of my girls but who do you think out of all the liars, including mona (janel), is the best actress?

Right of the bat, top three is: Troian, Sasha, and Janel. All three of them can NAIL intense, emotional, and dramatic scenes and move you as a viewer. I want to say those three are nearly on the same level from what we’ve seen.

• Janel made her performance in 7x19 her bitch. I honestly feel like she’s slept on when it comes to overall recognition.

• Troian has always been a top dog on this show, rightfully so. I will never forget Druggie!Spencer and how she played the hell out of that arc.

•Sasha is also so, so good when she has to deliver. My favorite aspect about her is how she’s in such control of her face that just the littlest thing she does evokes emotion. I love how in 7x19 when she watched Mary confessed to killing Jessica, Sasha’s face said more than words could ever speak. You can actually see the breaking in her heart just through her stare.

Anyone remember that Grey’s Anatomy episode 12x09, “The Sound of Silence”, where Meredith got injuried and she couldn’t speak throughout 98% of the entire hour so everything was focused strictly on her facials and body language all episode? 

Even if you’re not a Grey’s watcher, I highly recommend that episode because of its greatness from the silent acting to the cinematography. That damn performance (along with others) won Ellen Pompeo that People’s Choice award in 2016. I could DEFINITELY see Sasha doing something like that - just telling a story through her face, no words. Just because she’s so good at it!

This year for the Teen Choice awards for best drama tv actress the nominees are Lucy, Troian, Ashley, Sasha, Shay, and Bella Throne. No shade or anything but I would have yanked Shay or Ashley out and put in Janel instead. She deserves so much more. But those 3 are my girls - can’t even pick between them

so i assumed as time went on i’d start to move on from black sails and start being a semi-functional human being again but it turns out that the more time passes the more time i have to digest just how fucking incredible it is and the more my love grows????? what the fuck???? like its almost been three months since the finale and at this point i love this show so much i feel like im gonna explo d e all the time?????????

holy fucking shit please let me go and also never let me go

100 FOLLOWERS!

I’m so happy! 😅🎉 All legit too - no porn bots, no scammers! 

I just wanna thank a few people…

@inevitablesims, @buildingsimm and @vividlore, for being my first simblr friends - love you guys so much ♡

@asterllum, @tiredtoothache and @nikacoop, for being my most active followers along with my three friends. Feel free to talk to me whenever, so much respect for you lot already! 😉

@calisimgirl and @storylegacysims for tagging me in everything and being so supportive! Thanks a bunch 💐

Anyway, let me know what you guys want to thank you! I was thinking sim requests, as I’m still working on my questionable building skills and I’m too poor to do a giveaway 😂 Or I could do a mega ask-a-thon or questions post where I open the floor to basically all questions so you guys get to know me all a bit better… 😏

Let me know in the replies to this post, asks or messages! 😘

I’ve actually been seeing a lot of people on my dash lately talking about swimsuits and how women’s swimsuits make them dysphoric or just really uncomfortable so here’s my pro-tip

don’t wear women’s swimsuits! don’t wear tomboyish women’s swimsuits or women’s swim shorts, don’t even enter or glance at the women’s swimsuit section. buy a couple pairs of men’s board shorts and a plain black sports bra (compression bra if you want) that you’ll just dedicate to be a swimming bra, and you will almost definitely feel So Much Better

like i generally tried to avoid swimming for about three or four years & felt rly uncomfortable in a bathing suit before I settled on this getup and it’s 👌 👌 👌 

Good things!

  • I move into my first apartment in less than two months! I’m not prepared at all tbh but I’m so excited. Ahh I can’t wait to decorate and make it my own. I really should go through all of my stuff and get rid of or donate items that no longer have value to me. Maybe that will be this weekend’s project. 
  • I got approved today to change my major to Anthropology! Guys, I can’t even properly explain just how right this feels. I remember taking my first anthro course three years ago and how excited it made me to learn; I can’t wait to dive into the field even further. This just feels so ME. I wish it hadn’t taken me sooo long to get back here but at least I don’t feel lost anymore in this regard. 
  • Also I registered for classes for both the summer and fall semesters. My summer class is archaeology (starts next week and online) and man I’m stoked. :)

Look idiot, I just had three vaccines and a blood test done. I’m tired, I’m pissed, and the last thing I want is you in my life. I don’t care how old you are or whether or not I hurt your feelings by saying I’d rather have a new bubsy game than another conversation with you. I don’t care about your hurt feelings because you CLEARLY don’t care about mine. There’s no misunderstanding here: You’re a homophobe and I want you out of my life. “But muh religion!!!!!” I DON’T CARE. RELIGION IS NOT A GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD. Wanna know who else was “just following their religion”? The man behind the Pulse Nightclub shooting. The people who bomb abortion clinics. The parents who send their kids off to have their homosexuality electrocuted out of them. The Salvation Army workers who let a trans woman die instead of allowing her access to one of their shelters. The muslim extremists who throw acid in their wives’ faces because they spoke up or walked in front of their husbands or drove or who knows what else. The “faith healers” who take advantage of sick and disabled peoples’ spirituality to scam them out of hundreds of dollars. But that’s all okay, because they were just following their religion, right? Freedom of religion just means that the government can’t tell you not to practice your religion, not that anything you do is suddenly okay because you do it “IN DUH NAEM OF DUH LAWRD!!!!!!!!” Shut up. Shut up and leave me alone. You’re only a year younger than me? ACT LIKE IT.

🐝 & 🦋

🐝- Tag three friends and your three favorite things about them!

YESSSSS I LOVE THIS QUESTION I GET TO BRAG ABOUT MY FRIENDS!!

I will say, one of my favorite, collectively shared traits about all three mentioned here is their wonderfully fun and insightful personalities - I feel like I could just talk to all of them for hours at a time, saezuru-related or not <3
I won’t get into too much detail for privacy’s sake, but all these women have made my fandom experience an extraordinarily exceptional one, and I am so, so thankful for them that I can hardly put it into the proper words. I’ll stick to three things for each, but I have scrolls-worth of more.

@domeyashiro
1) her dedication, organization, attention to detail and commitement to what she loves: you don’t get a blog like hers without it. She is THE knowledge plaza/center/foundation for saezuru simply because she chooses to be - she takes her interests and expands it into something tangible and accessible to everyone else. Where would we be without her?! So much of Saezuru has been opened up to me because of her – all of the language nuances, the unspoken but ever-present cultural influences that affect characters’ decisions and mindsets, the tidbits of information provided by sensei in various interviews and Note accounts. My love of saezuru has only deepened because of her, and I say that with an immeasurable amount of gratitude and awe.
2) perseverance!! I am in constant, constant awe of how strong she is: emotionally, mentally, all of it. That’s all I’ll say!!
3) her thoughtful, balancing perspective on everything from discourse to life discomforts to fanfiction tropes, etc - I am temperamental and often led by emotions, and having her kindly provide the alternatives has, no lie, made me into a much more understanding and less impatient person.

@cantfindacoolnamelol
1) funny as fuck, for real, like jesus christ the amount of times I laugh out loud at something she’s commented upon or observed is TOO DAMN HIGH. she once casually compared doumeki’s ass to a bell pepper and I just sat at my desk and laughed into my hands forever.
2) MY RANT BUDDY!!! How many rage sessions have we had?! I swear my sanity has leveled out solely because I have someone to vent to, who nods vigorously and says “YES ME TOO AND ALSO THIS!!.”. And I hope I keep my end of the bargain on that as well! 
3) every time I get an idea or headcanon, somehow she expands on it to the inth degree, to places I didn’t even think about. All my writing in the saezuru community is the result of her, full stop. My brain is always on fire with new ideas because she is the angel AND the demon sitting on my shoulder, whispering fantastic ideas ad nauseum.

@wouldnt-touch-you-anyway
1)  her welcoming, very warm, exceedingly approachable personality: I feel like a honeybee to a flower. She gives you her full attention that you soak up like sunshine. It’s EXTREMELY addictive. Like whoa buddy, I need to calm down because as an only child, this is like cocaine to me: throwing the rattle down, having a tantrum, screaming GIVE ME YOUR HYPERFOCUS AND YOUR SOOTHING ATTENTION!
2) MISS Q&A!! she’s always trying to understand more, always probing with the most genuinely interested questions of anything she’s focused on. Her insightfulness and intellectualism makes my brain expand at a constant rate. I love the re-look at so many interactions of characters now and hearing her perspective on it, because it doesn’t just add to my Yoneda Kou worship, but to witnessing the human experience through another medium.
3) her big helping of generosity, both in things and in spirit: there’s something profoundly cool about someone who wants to give simply because it makes them happy to do so. I admire it INTENSELY and wish to absorb this quality of sincere friendship!!
(3b) I like her so much, I forgive her for being a Cubs fan and beating the Indians in the WS last year. That’s love, right there.. <3

my two best friends (we're a group of three including me) went to the beach without even asking me and i should be fine with it because i hang out with one friend and sometimes with the other bc we don't always have to be with the three of us but i feel quite bad about it bc i wouldve loved to go as well but i wasn't even invited and it kind of hurts so how do i get over this dumb small thing??

That’s understandable hun. Maybe your friends just thought up the idea and got excited and just went without a second thought? It’s easy to get caught up in an idea and forget the details, it doesn’t mean they don’t care. Plus there’ll be lots of other chances to go to the beach so you’re not missing out!
Best wishes 💘

anonymous asked:

When I was around 3 years old, I would hear a voice taunting me when I tried to sleep - I had sensitive hearing, and would hear a man (he spoke like he was a show host, kind of sounded like he was almost laughing) shouting 'one.... Two.... THREE!!!!!' I had very sensitive hearing, loud noises made me cry and hurt me, this voice felt real and I used to cry and ask my parents if they could hear it. It felt so real, and I felt the voice was mocking me. It went as I got older, what could this be?

It could have very well just been your brain starting to fall asleep. It’s not uncommon to hear voices of have sudden jolts of movement as you’re falling asleep, as it’s our brain entering sleep mode. The audible hallucinations can feel really real, like there’s a really a person there with you. 

I’ve only got three small imagines coming out today, all of which were unrequested and I just thought up in about twenty minutes. I’m just not feeling the writing vibe today so none of them are particularly creative but I hope you enjoy them anyway.

Hopefully, tomorrow when I’ve had a decent night’s sleep I’ll be able to deliver my usual quality of writing.

And I’m out of your range
Now it’s kind of strange
How we change orbit in our lives
You were kind of a moon outside of my room
I could just feel you nearby
Now I feel you gone
‘Cause I know which side you’re on
And it’s not mine

Does anyone ever think about the fact that after everything with Kate, maybe Derek goes to New York with the decision to never to be hurt that way by anyone again. Not the losing his family part, because how could he ever lose so much again, right? (Right? I’m not crying at all!) So he gets a part-time job as a grocery bagger or something, because he is young and most places won’t hire him halfway through the year. And he works after school to bring in a few bucks so that Laura’s eyes won’t be quite so pinched now that she has gotten her GED and began working to make ends meet for them in a very expensive city. After work, she then spends sometimes hours on the phone and emailing lawyers who are still trying to get all of the paperwork straight. So yeah, Derek  works to help Laura.

But then some lady at the store gives him that look. Like Kate. Her eyes are interested, and her grin is predatory, and he just knows she wants him. So he thinks to himself if he initiates it, maybe it won’t leave him feeling so wrong. So he does. And it becomes a thing. He flirts with anyone who shows him interest as he bags their groceries and “helps them to their car” even though they never need help.

From there maybe it just becomes a way of survival. As he gets older, it seems like more women want to sleep with him. He’s filling out, thanks to all of the runs he’s going on after work and thanks to the workouts he’s pushing his body through every morning. Because he has to be strong enough. He has to be bigger. He doesn’t want anyone to think they can hold him down or force him.

He learns how to play the game. One day he mentions something about that to a coworker (now working at a bar mixing drinks because someone had once told him he would make great money in tips) but his coworker didn’t think of sex as a game. Derek knew better. Maybe it wasn’t for some people, but he would never be able to trust someone in that way again, so he had to strike first before an opponent could.

One day a man at the bar looks at him just right, and Derek just thinks Oh. He’s never focused on men before, but he’s noticed them in passing. So he goes to the guy’s apartment after his shift and they sleep together. Derek pretends he’s done this before, even though he’s mostly relying on his sense of smell and hearing to tell if the guy is into different things he tries. And after that, Derek flirts with anyone he feels he has to.

So fast forward to Stiles. Stiles who is home from college after his second year has finished to make room for summer break. Stiles who means so much and is so good even when he’s an asshole. Stiles who leans in one day after a pack dinner, when he and Derek have finished cleaning up after everyone else has gone home. Stiles kisses him gently, at first, almost hesitantly. But when Derek doesn’t push him away, he presses in more firmly and suddenly Derek realizes where this is going to go. And it kind of makes him sad.

He lets Stiles slip his shirt off and push him back onto his bed. Stiles crawls on top of him and Derek begins pulling their hips together in a slow and sinuous way. But Stiles doesn’t react like any man Derek’s been with before–which really shouldn’t be as much of a surprise as it is. Yes, Stiles lets out a little moan, but it doesn’t break Stiles away from Derek’s mouth, where his tongue is doing things to Derek that he can’t explain. And his hands after trapping Derek’s face, but not like he’s trying to contain Derek, more like he’s holding something precious. His thumbs keep swiping across Derek’s eyebrows, like he’s memorizing their shape.

Ten things I learned about writing from Stephen King
The novelist James Smythe, who has been analysing the work of Stephen King for the Guardian since 2012, on the lessons he has drawn from the master of horror fiction
By James Smythe

Stephen King is an All-Time Great, arguably one of the most popular novelists the world has ever seen. And there’s a good chance that he’s inspired more people to start writing than any other living writer. So, as the Guardian and King’s UK publisher Hodder launch a short story competition – to be judged by the master himself – here are the ten most important lessons to learn from his work.

1. Write whatever the hell you like

King might be best known – or, rather, best regarded – as a writer of horror novels, but really, his back catalogue is crammed with every genre you can think of. There are thrillers (Misery, Gerald’s Game), literary novels (Bag Of Bones, Different Seasons), crime procedurals (Mr Mercedes), apocalypse narratives (The Stand), fantasy (Eyes Of The Dragon, The Dark Tower series) … He’s even written what I think of as being one of the greatest Young Adult novels of all time: The Long Walk. Perhaps the only genre or audience he hasn’t really touched so far is comedy, but most of his work features moments that show his deft touch with humour. It’s clear that King does what he wants, when he wants, and his constant readers – the term he calls his, well, constant readers – will follow him wherever he goes.

2. The scariest thing isn’t necessarily what’s underneath the bed

Horror is a curious thing. What scares one person won’t necessarily scare another. And while there might be moments in his horror novels that tread towards the more conventional ideas of what some find terrifying, for the most part, the truly scary aspects are those that deal with humanity itself. Ghosts drive people to madness, telekinetic girls destroy whole towns with their powers, clowns … well, clowns are just bloody terrifying full stop. But the true crux of King’s ability to scare is finding the thing that his readers are actually worried about, and bringing that to the fore. If you’re writing horror, don’t just think about what goes bump in the night; think about what that bump might drive people to do afterwards.

3. Don’t be scared of transparency

One of my favourite things about King’s short story collections are the little notes about each tale that he puts into the text. The history of them, the context for the idea, how the writing process actually worked. They’re not only invaluable material for aspiring writers – because exactly how many drafts does it take to reach a decent story? King knows! – but they’re also brilliant nuggets of insight into King himself. Some people might think that it’s better off knowing nothing about authors when they read their work, but for King, his heart is on his sleeve. In his latest collection, The Bazaar of Broken Dreams, King gets more in-depth than ever, talking about what inspired the stories in such an honest way that it couldn’t have come from another writer’s pen. Which brings us to …

4. Write what you know. Sort of. Sometimes

Write what you know is the most common writing tip you’ll find anywhere. It’s nonsense, really, because if we all did that we’d end up with terribly boring novels about writers staring out of windows waiting for inspiration to hit. (If you like those, incidentally, head straight for the literary fiction section of your nearest bookshop.) But King understands that experience is something which can be channelled into your work, and should be at every opportunity. Aspects of his life – addiction, teaching, his near-fatal car accident, rock and roll, ageing – have cropped up in his work over and over, in ways that aren’t always obvious, but often help to drive the story. That’s something every writer can use, because it’s through these truths that real emotions can be writ large on the page.

5. Aim big. Or small

King’s written some mammoth books, and they’re often about mammoth things. The Stand takes readers into an apocalypse, with every stage of it laid out on the page until the final fantastical showdown. It deals with a horror that hits a group of characters twice in their lives, showing us how years and years of experience can change people. And The Dark Tower is a seven (or eight, or more, if you count the short stories set in its world) part series that takes in so many different genres of writing it’s dizzying. When he needs to, King aims really big, and sometimes that’s what you have to do to tell a story. At the other end of the spectrum, some of King’s most enduring stories – Rita Hayworth & Shawshank Redemption, The Mist – have come from his shorter works. He traps small groups of characters in single locations and lets the story play out how it will. The length of the story you’re telling should dictate the size of the book. Doesn’t matter if it’s forty thousand words or two hundred, King doesn’t waste a word.

6. Write all the time. And write a lot

King’s published – wait for it – 55 novels, 11 collections of stories, 5 non-fiction works, 7 novellas and 9 assorted other pieces (including illustrated works and comic books). That’s over a period of 41 years. That’s an average of two books a year. Which is, I must admit, a pretty giddying amount. That’s years of reading (or rereading, if you’re as foolishly in awe of him as I am). But he’s barely stopped for breath. This year has seen three books published by him, which makes me feel a little ashamed. Still, at my current rate of writing, I might catch up with him sometime next century. And while not every book has found the same critical and commercial success, they’ve all got their fans.

7. Voice is just as important as content

King’s a writer who understands that a story needs to begin before it’s actually told. It begins in the voice of the novel: is it first person, or third? Is it past or present tense? Is it told through multiple narrators, or just the one? He’s a master at understanding exactly why each story is told the way it’s told. Sure, he might dress it up as something simple – the story finding the voice it needs, or vice versa – but through his books you can see that he’s tried pretty much everything, and can see why each voice worked with the story he was telling.

8. And Form is just as important as voice

King isn’t really thought of as an experimental novelist, which is grossly unfair. Some of King’s more daring novels have taken on really interesting forms. Be it The Green Mile’s fragmented, serialised narrative; or the dual publication of The Regulators and Desperation – novels which featured the same characters in very different situations, with unsettling parallels between the stories that unfolded for them; or even Carrie’s mixed-media narrative, with sections of the story told as interview or newspaper extract. All of these novels have played with the way they’re presented on the page to find the perfect medium for telling those stories. Really, the lesson here from King is to not be afraid to play.

9. You don’t have to be yourself

Some of King’s greatest works in the early years of his career weren’t published by King himself. They were in the name of Richard Bachman, his slightly grislier pseudonym. The Long Walk, Thinner, The Running Man – these are books that dealt with a nastier side of things than King did in his properly attributed work. Because, maybe it’s good to have a voice that allows us to let the real darkness out, with no judgments. (And then maybe, as King eventually did in The Dark Half, it’s good to kill that voice on the page … )

10. Read On Writing. Now

This is the most important tip in the list. In 2000, King published On Writing, a book that sits in the halfway space between autobiography and writing manual. It’s full of details about his process, about how he wrote his books, channelled his demons and overcame his challenges. It’s one of the few books about writing that are actually worth their salt, mainly because it understands that it’s about a personal experience, and readers might find that useful. There’s no universal truths when it comes to writing. One person’s process would be a nightmare for somebody else. Some people spend years labouring on nearly perfect first drafts; some people get a first draft written in six weeks, and then spend the next year destroying it and rebuilding it. On Writing tells you how King does it, to help you to find your own. Even if you’re not a fan of his books, it’s invaluable to the in-development writer. Heck, it’s invaluable to all writers.
