no doubt poster

names for tumblr, rated

Tumblr: whoever uses this is a cop. for example: hello, fellow Tumblr users. can you direct me to the marijuana blogs? 0/5, nice try officer

tumblr: boring. I don’t trust people who always call it ‘tumblr’. why are you so indifferent? what are you hiding? usually found in serious posts, too. for example: I’m probably going to leave tumblr. fuck you. why should you escape while I’m stuck here? 1/5

tunglr: amusing and yet innocent, a flippant dismissal of minor annoying content on the website, meant with no malice. reminiscent of the good old days. most likely suited for shitposts or fresh memes. for example: anyone else on tunglr wanna talk about piss? 3/5

tumblr dot com: rather ordinary, but when used in context is very good. best used to express sincere exasperation, for example: of course I’m comparable to a murderer for liking cheese fries, I would expect nothing less from tumblr dot com. 3/5

tumblr.edu: excellent. a subtle roast, indicating the many problems that come from using tumblr as one’s only source for facts. best used ironically after such a faux pas has been made, for example: the earth is flat? more great content from tumblr.edu. 4/5

tumblr.hell: accurate, more of a mood than a domain name. everyone knows what it means. can be used across a wide variety of posts and nobody is in any doubt of what the poster means when they say it. for example: i’ve seen so much knobgobblery on tumblr.hell that by this point my soul has left my body via my ass fuck each and every one of you. 5/5

Now that you've mentioned Keith's bike I'm curious about where it may have come from. Another memento of his mom? Something that the people who brought Blue to Earth left behind?

Believe it or not someone was just talking to me about this. Credit to dhaarijmens who I… cannot @ for some reason, for this screengrab:

So the poster up behind Hunk’s head, at a glance, would seem to be an advertisement for the bike. Oh, mystery solved, it’s normal Earth technology and Pidge just had coincidentally never seen anything like it before. Pidge… the… science enthusiast. Hm.

So I went deeper.

Deep in our sub-conscious, we are told
Lie all the memories, lie all the notes
Of all the music we have ever heard
And all the phrases those we loved have spoken
Sorrows and losses time has since consoled
Family jokes, out-moded anecdotes
Each sentimental souvenir and token
Everything seen, experienced, each word
Addressed to us in infancy, before
Before we could even know or understand
The implications of our wonderland.
There they are, the legendary lies
The birthday treats, the sights, the sounds, the tears
Forgotten debris of forgotten years
Waiting to be recalled, waiting to rise
Before our world dissolves before our eyes
Waiting for some small, intimate reminder,
A word, a tune, a known familiar scent
An echo from the past when, innocent
We looked upon the present with delight
And doubted not the future would be kinder
And never knew the loneliness of night.

This is my last one-shot until July after I’ve finished my exams and I wanted to sign off with something fluffy. I was in Paris a few weeks ago, (devastatingly single on Valentine’s Day) so this is a one-shot borne out of my travels there and also what I felt like writing. Enjoy, and I’ll see you guys in a few months :)


Paris is one of those undefinable things in life.

People ask ‘What’s Paris like?’ but there’s no way to quantify the spectacle of it all, not one word to sum it up. Trying to explain something like Paris is like trying to explain the smell of coffee beans; they smell like…well, coffee beans. An empty sentence if ever there was one. And yet, as unexplainable as it, everyone knows exactly what it means.

Piper Chapman and the unexplainable go hand in hand.

How, exactly, does a WASPy college grad end up on a long haul flight from New York to Paris, fast asleep with her head resting on the shoulder of a heroin importer? People can ask questions all they like, endeavour to understand how Piper and Alex ever came to be, but the answer will always remain in a category above and beyond anyone’s comprehension. You ask Alex Vause why she’s perfectly okay, better than okay, with spending thousands upon thousands on this little blonde thing currently snoring into her ear, and she’ll just shrug, nudge her glasses and tell you she loves Piper.

It’s as simple and as complicated as that.

When Piper stirs about an hour from their destination, they’re all awkwardly tangled up in each other, the back of her head resting against Alex’s front with the brunette’s arms encircling her body. Piper turns drowsily and mumbles something into the material of Alex’s shirt.

McCree is less than happy when the bounty on his head means that he’s banned from a mission, leaving Hanzo forced to take on an offensive role down on the ground…and not even the archer’s promise to return safely is enough to stop him from taking matters into his own hands.

Animated Movie Posters Bring Action Back To Life

Films are a visually enticing experience for us and without a doubt, the posters have a lot to do with making our mind up about the movie. Using the latest digital media to turn these otherwise stationary posters of famous movies into a minute clip of a climax or action, these animated posters not only depict the movie, but also makes use of the visual impact which will leave the viewer engaged and reeling.

So I just got this postcard this morning, and I am so excited!! Ahh thank you so much Hannah, this little postcard finally made the long trek all the way to Australia! I was stoked to support you then, and I can’t wait to see what awesome things 2015 bring for you!!

I’m making a prediction: Tomorrow,  we’ll get an honest to god,  Cockles kiss

No hands in the way …

No on-the-cheek bullshit. 

But a full on,  lips touching,  real, no-question-about-it kiss.

It’ll be quick,  just a peck, really– but a kiss none the less. 


This is my prediction for Sunday,  Jus In Bello 2016.

A serious post about Team Delusional

I freely admit that in recent weeks my TD related posts have devolved into pure snark and mockery, and generally speaking I don’t regret that. However, what it does mean is that my original intentions with TD may have been lost. So I wanted to bring back a post I made in January of this year, in answer to an anon asking WHY I care about TD

 It can be found HERE, but I’m going to cut and paste the body, because I’d like people to read it:

“Why do I care so much? I care because I am seeing post after post from vulnerable young women talking about how believing Beth is alive has saved them suicide. I am seeing posts about people spending days sobbing over Beth’s death and only being happy when they think about how they know she’s coming back. I am seeing people saying they have nightmares every night about Beth, but now they know she’s coming back, they are okay. I am seeing people talking about severe depression, mental illness, self-harm and the only thing keeping them balanced is their belief in Beth coming back.

I care because I am SCARED for these people. I am scared that this massive boiling pot of reinforcement that is going on in the Team Delusional tags is going to end up in some horrible tragedy.

I just want these people to look at the facts - the ACTUAL facts, not the convoluted, tenuous, theories that are being posted by their tag-mates. I want them to realise that it is very likely that Beth isn’t coming back; to contemplate how they are going to cope when she doesn’t; to think about finding some other passion or fandom to give them the good feelings that being a fan of Beth gave them.

Because right now, I don’t see anyone on the tag talking to their friends about the possibility that things are not going to work out how they imagine, and preparing their vulnerable friends for the worst.”

I wrote that in January, and it deeply saddens me that it appears to be horrible relevant right now with someone from the TD tag. 

At the time I made this post, I received a lot of hate in response - most of which told me to mind my own business, and many people telling me that TD took care of their own and were friends looking out for each other.

But this is the point, that is NOT what Team Delusional has done. Team Delusional has fed into a state of belief that is NOT healthy for many of these young women.

These are women who are basing their happiness not just on Beth’s survival but on WHO Beth is - and as TD portrays it - who she will become. Instead of focussing on how wonderful Beth was as a character, what she stood for and did for them as viewers and fans, TD has stripped so much of that away in portraying it as only being the appetiser to the REAL Beth story.

That’s not true and it’s not healthy. Beth isn’t coming back, and by focusing on this idea that she is TD has not only delayed and denied the ability of much of her fans to deal with the grieving process for her, they have done so in a way that takes away much of what MADE her a great character. This means that when she DOESN’T come back (and she won’t) that TD believers have a double blow, because not only won’t she appear, they have also put all her significance on what she MIGHT have been, instead of what she WAS.

Take for example, the “new sheriff in town” idea. This was foreshadowing, but the idea is that she has YET to live up to this title, that it’s yet to happen stops people from appreciating that she ALREADY WAS. She did amazing things at Grady and managed to help Noah twice. She saved Carol’s life. She helped Dr Edwards change, or contemplate change anyway. She did all of that already.

She ALREADY overcame her suicide and depression and it was shown from season 3 onwards. She looked after Judith, she supported Maggie and Hershel, she kicked ass when Glenn and Merle were fighting. She helped defend the prison form the Woodbury attack. She enjoyed a happy relationship with Zach. She helped Michonne understand she was part of the family. She sacrificed her safety to find the children. She helped Daryl talk about his past, and gave him hope that there were good people out there. She sang and she had hope.

THOSE are things that do not change even though she is now dead. Her character HAD the on-screen conversion to a strong, hopeful, loving girl that people want for their characters.

By focusing on her story not being finished, on saying there MUST Be more she MUST come back and take down Terminus, or Grady, or the Wolves or Negan; she MUSt become a leader; she MUST have a full relationship with Daryl; she MUST become bad ass - you are denying that her success as a person had ALREADY been achieved. 

The phrase “Beth Greene deserved more” and the associated beliefs that go with it imply that there NEEDS to be more to Beth’s story for her to be WHOLE. This suggest the transformation she already went through wasn’t completed until she did greater, BETTER things. 

She already did them, and the refusal to accept that isn’t helping anyone.

When someone is depressed, you don’t say “well, I’m sure nothing bad will ever happen to you in your life again, so don’t worry about it.” You acknowledge that life will be shit from time to time, so you help give them coping methods to get through those times, and help focus on the GOOD THINGS they have and have experienced.

TD’s insistence on focusing on what they are sure is yet to be has stopped many people from dealing what what already is - that Beth is dead. 

Please don’t tell me that people have dealt with it, because I read the tag, I see what people say when they see something that makes them suddenly question TD and worry she really is dead. The talk of “punches in the stomach”, “feel sick”, “unable to cope” and the anger from these people shows how important it is to them that Beth is still alive, and that they are not emotionally prepared to deal with it if she is not. When they should ALREADY have dealt with it a year ago. But the rise of TD has stunted that emotional healing process, especially when any time there is doubt TD posters will tell everyone to stay calm and believe because she IS alive, she IS coming back.

She’s not. And that’s why for the past year whenever I KNOW something TD has been saying is wrong (based on facts) I will say so, because I cannot bear to see these unhealthy, unhelpful hopes being built on garbage, lies and people who are ignoring the truth.

I am BEGGING you. If you are basing a lot of happiness on Beth returning, please walk away from TD now because Beth isn’t coming back and the longer this goes on, the bigger a deal it has become to some of you and the more it’s going to hurt when inevitably the truth is realised.

Steve and Bucky were rival tween pop stars when they were younger. Both have now transitioned into acting, and have been cast opposite each other in a film chronicling the lives of two best friends growing up in the great depression who develop feelings for each other.

I’M REALLY SORRY IT TOOK ME 2 FULL DAYS TO GET TO THIS cone of shame

  • When Bucky and Steve were younger, the media made a big deal out of their ‘rivalry’. They would often compare them side by side to one another - their music, their fashion, how good-looking they were. It was annoying for the two of them, yeah - but it also helped sell a hell of a lot of records. 
  • There were a lot of made up quotes floating around out there: ones where Steve trash-talked Bucky’s music, ones where Bucky trash-talking Steve’s looks - you name it, there was some article out there about it, playing up the rivalry massively
  • They both sang until they were maybe 22 - then, simultaneously, transitioned to acting. There was a lot made of that: huge numbers of columnists and journalists rushed to say that they only did so because the other did; they would obviously have no talent for it. They all wanted to see if the rivalry would continue, being dragged with them into their new careers
  • However, it’s hard to compare the two of them: Steve’s roles are usually in romantic comedies, and lighter movies - they usually involve showing off his (now very mature, very ripped) body. In contrast, Bucky’s roles are usually gritty, and sad: he’s often a criminal, or something like that. They both manage to throw off their adolescent personas of innocence, in different ways - although magazines and newspapers always publish pictures of them with captions like all grown-up, which they both find annoying
  • When they’re cast opposite one another, there’s a media frenzy: the old rivalry is brought up, inevitably, and they have to answer a bunch of questions each about it, which is extremely annoying - not least to Bucky, who (having sought out more adult movies to star in, specifically to avoid his child-star past) is absolutely sick of the old 'rivalry’. That said, he does expect things to be frosty with Steve when he sees him on set
  • But it couldn’t be more different than he imagines: Steve smiles broadly when he sees him, saying, Bucky Barnes! - it’s a pleasure to meet you at last, and clapping Bucky on the back. Bucky’s wary, at first, thinking he might be ridiculed at any moment. But when no nasty comments come, and Steve keeps smiling at him, laughing at his jokes and taking a genuine interest in what he has to say, it’s … Confusing, at least. Steve appears to be a great guy - as well as being hot as hell - but all he’s ever known him as is a rival. Surely they can’t be friends, now? 
  • As an ice-breaker, having to make out with Steve isn’t bad: they shoot the climactic scene of the movie first - the one where Bucky has to grab Steve, push him against a back-alley wall, and 'kiss him like it’s going out of fashion’ (the screen-writing for this movie isn’t exactly Pulitzer-prize wining). 
  • You ready for this? Bucky asks Steve cautiously, licking his lips. He doesn’t want to make Steve uncomfortable - he’s played gay characters before, and he’s experimented in real life, too - but he doubts a poster-boy like Steve has ever done anything like this before. But Steve just smirks, and asks, are you? with a raised eyebrow - a challenge
  • The first take is clumsy: Bucky almost trips over, and he’s too tentative, according to the director. You’ve got to be desperate! He tells him. Bucky nods, and takes a deep breath. Relax, Steve says - it’s nothing I haven’t done before. Bucky blinks, at that - clearly, he was wrong, before
  • After a few takes, they get into the swing of it: it’s hard to get into it, with so many people watching them, but Bucky finds that he very much likes kissing Steve (he’s a good kisser, even just for the camera) 
  • Afterwards, before they go to their separate trailers, Steve stops Bucky - i just wanted to say, I’m, uh - I’m actually a pretty big fan, he says, and asks if there’s anything to their old rivalry. Bucky tells him there isn’t - before cheekily adding, if i wasn’t a fan of yours before, i am after shooting that scene, he says. For a second, he’s afraid he’s crossed the line - but then Steve laughs, and tells him, you’re not too bad yourself
  • The schedule is all over the place, in terms of the chronology of the movie: they go from being extremely close, to just being good friends, to 'regretting a passionate night together’ - it’s exhausting, for them both, pretty much. 
  • There’s a lot of downtime for them, though: one time, Steve invites Bucky to his trailer, to discuss characterisations - they go over the scripts together, and Bucky notices Steve squinting at his script. He asks him what’s wrong - Steve says he has trouble with his eyesight, when it comes to scripts, but not to worry about it - he’s got an excellent memory, to compensate for the fact he can’t read it over and over. Bucky reads the line he’s looking at for him, and they discuss it for a little while
  • They do that several times, taking as much time together privately as they can, wanting this movie to be as good as possible - to prove everyone wrong about their acting talent, and to put the old 'rivalry’ bullshit to bed, once and for all
  • One such time, Steve’s in Bucky’s trailer after shooting has finished for the day - it was a pretty long day, too. Bucky offers Steve a beer, and he accepts: they kick back, and just chat for a long, long while. In several beers’ time, Bucky suggests going online and finding all those bullshit qutoes they were supposed to have said about each other, and reading them for fun - Steve accepts, and they laugh themselves silly over them. 
  • In the midst of their laugter, Bucky teases, this one here - they said you said i have a nice ass - is that true, Rogers? You like my ass? Steve says of course, i do, you jerk - just look at it, without even thinking. They fall into silence, for a second - Steve realises what he said; his mouth starts opening and shutting, as he thinks about back-tracking. But Bucky intervenes, covering his mouth with his own, and kissing him just like his character kissed Steve, in that first scene they ever shot together
  • Bucky’s trailer definitely rocks, that night - they have a bleary 6am start, and they’re pretty sure some PAs see Steve leave Bucky’s trailer in yesterday’s clothes, but they had a good time (and Steve assures he’ll call, with a cheeky smile - like they don’t see enough of each other as-is)
  • By the time they finish shooting, someone’s talked to the press - they spread rumours (and a few seemingly impossible paparazzi shots of the two of them), telling the magazines and papers that Steve and Bucky are sleeping together. At least they’ve stopped going on about the damn rivalry, Bucky says, earning himself a scowl from Steve (that he can’t quite sustain)
  • The studio love it, of course: they love a good scandal, before the release of any movie, to help it sell tickets, and this is perfect. Steve doesn’t like that attitude at all, but it doesn’t stop him from sleeping with Bucky, and taking him out on dates (mainly to the catering truck, but then to nicer places, when they finish their hectic filming schedules)
  • When the premiere comes around, though, Steve decides to say what the hell, and hold Bucky’s hand on the red carpet, leading him past hundreds of screaming fans and cameras. 
  • The critics rave about the movie, citing Steve and Bucky’s chemistry as the source of its success. They can’t complain, though: they’re finally being taken seriously, as actors, and no one comments about how much they’re grown up ever again
