He was currently doing a live stream for his perfume launch. You would usually tag along and stay behind the cameras during interviews But not tonight. You decided to be lazy and have a little nap.

“Promise?” You tugged on the collar of Bucky’s shirt. You were leaning against him, trapping him between you and the front door.

“Baby, I promise. It’s just a guys night. No dames, I swear.” He chuckled at your pouty jealousy. He rubbed his thumb on your cheek and leaned down to kiss your nose.

“None that you’re bringing. That doesn’t mean they won’t be there. It is a bar, Buck.” You chewed on the inside of your lip. You knew how ridiculous you sounded but you couldn’t help it. Bucky always had women looking at him. Not that you didn’t understand why; he’s gorgeous.

“(Y/N),” Bucky held your face in his hands and smiled at you. “I promise, no girls. You trust me, right?”

“Oh no,” Danneel sighed, dropping the magazine in her lap. This was not going go over well with Y/n, who undoubtedly saw it. Poor girl!

“Have you seen this?” She asked Jensen as he entered the room. His eyebrows furrowed together.

“What is it?”

“The Padalecki’s People article.”

“Not really, Jared showed me the pictures on his phone, but I haven’t read it yet. Why?”

“See for yourself,” Danneel extended the magazine towards her husband, waiting while his eyes quickly zoomed over the article.

“Okay…” his texas accent drawled. “You seem annoyed, what’s wrong? It’s a nice little piece.”

“Seriously?” Danneel raised an eyebrow, then rolled her eyes when Jensen just shrugged his shoulders. “Maybe read it again, more carefully. And say, I don’t know, from the perspective of his seventeen year old daughter.”

“Crap,” Jensen muttered, reading the article again. “Man, this is going to be a mess.”

“That is probably an understatement. Jensen, this is going to crush her.”

Jensen flopped down on the couch next to her, “What are the chances you think she doesn’t see it?” Jensen nodded at the look his wife gave him, she would definitely see it. “He didn’t mean for it to come out that way. The public doesn’t know about her, he was probably just trying to protect that.”

“That probably isn’t going to help. Why is that even a thing? It’s been months, this could have been the perfect opportunity to revel her to the public and the fans. There really isn’t a need to keep her a secret anymore.”

“I don’t know babe.”

“Well, it’s a good thing we’re going over for dinner. I’m sure Gen doesn’t know yet, or I would have gotten a phone call. And it’s probably a good idea to give Jared a heads up before he talks to Y/n next.”

Hi Hi!! Sorry for the delay everyone. Thank you again for all the kind words. It makes me so happy knowing that there are always friends/support out there.  

This chapter is super long so I decided to split up the text with photos but this whole chapter is from Nesta’s POV. 

There is only one more chapter left! Gah!

Nessian Part Twenty Two by L.J. LaFleur

Nesta:

He didn’t wake up. He was still—a pristine sculpture of death. Tears stained my swollen cheeks, I could barely register the movements and sounds crowding around us.

A gentle hand squeezed my shoulder. “No,” I whispered while fighting their strengthening grip. “No!” I shook off their touch, “he, he’ll wake up. He has to wake up.” My entire body shook with the aftermath of rage—of the loss of him.

I hated it—the shaking. All I do is tremble with either fury or fear. Venomous bile raced up the back of my throat. I turned to the side, expelling my guts in the war-torn field.  

“Nesta?” Her honeyed voice raised above the rest, penetrating my cloud of despair.

I looked upwards, peering over my shoulder at the beauty of spring and all things sweet. Elain’s bloody hand rested on my back, her golden eyes flashed to Cassian’s limp body.

There was a deeper sadness, a knowing despair that only she could have foreseen. Part of me wanted to scream at her, to attack her for knowing and not telling me. We could have stopped this. I could have just stayed put in Velaris, it would have saved him. If I had known—I would have stayed—risking the liv…

My mind rambled with different scenarios, but he would have ended up dead either way, I realized.

By my flames or Beron’s.

Stories with Puzzles

Anonymous asked: “Hi Lizard. I’m writing a surreal and puzzle text adventure game. How would I go about writing a plot and making it engaging and enjoyable?”

I’m not really sure what kind of book this might be? I mean, I’m familiar with choose-your-own-adventure books and I’ve read some novels that are a little on the experimental side that involve things like puzzles, but I’m not really sure what you’re looking for.

I’m intrigued by the number of people blaming WWE for the wrestlers being out sick.

I’m sure that once they realized that it was infectious, they started testing. I mean, just because one wrestler is sick, doesn’t mean you automatically assume viral outbreak and call the CDC. It’s fall. They could have just thought it was a cold or something.

Avengers x teen reader college acceptance reaction (to like an Ivy League or something)

Tony immediately starts planning a party. He’s happy for you, like crazy happy. Happier than he’s been for a while.

Sam hugs you and tells you he always knew you could do it, “You’re smarter than half these idiots walking around here. I knew you’d get in.”

Thor isn’t really sure what the significance of Ivy league school is but he can tell you’re excited about it so he’s excited too. He also calls for a celebration.

Natasha knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that you’d get in so she’s ready with a few tips for establishing your dominance in the classroom and in your personal life. She teaches how to properly take no shit.

Steve hugs you, and depending on how close you are he might get a little sad, because you’re leaving. I think he’s the most prone to forming brotherly/fatherly bonds with the youths so he’s probably gonna be a little torn up about. Expect a super sentimental gift from him and tears on move in day.

I feel pretty bad changing my entire name to that of a fictional character’s (it started out as Dirk, then I wanted to change my last name but I didn’t have any ideas so I just chose Strider). I genuinely love it but I feel like future employers or people will point at me for it.

I don’t think it’s weird! (I don’t know the character tbh) but I’m sure nobody would call you out on it, and if it was a stranger you could pass it off as some funny joke that you hear a lot! -Matt

to that boy somewhere in virginia:

hope lies in crevices marked on invisible maps. surely you’ve hidden in every place, away from my searching eyes. blankly staring. wondering. i strayed into the rain waiting for a gift from god, delivered by his weakened hands. i hoped it would be you. in any form. a cloud. wisp of smoke. jewels. romance. handheld friendship. who knows, if we had stayed, we could’ve made a beautiful mess.

i collapse. i weep. i know you feel it too. deep deep deep down in that chest of yours, made of golden steel. i once called you angelic & i meant it. i was too late in the connotation, for you had fallen into definitions of archangels. a sinful decadence i dared to slip under my quivering veins, in need of another hit of your cologne. a fresh set of kisses. pressed button-downs, my leaked perfume.

angryfishtrap  asked:

okay I suggest a new rule for dreamworks execs: don't just hire the person who says they kinda remember the original and loved it, make sure the person *also* loves the genre. just saying.

I think it would help if they actually cared about the genre, besides what they could find on the show in 10 minutes of looking at Google.

“Oooh, Planet Daibazall!  Sincline ships!  Because Zarkon and Lotor were called Daibazall and Sincline in Japan.  GET IT!?  WE GET YOU!”

Then you see the show and the mere suggestion of giant robots seems to have the showrunners go “EWWW!”  There’s this reluctance, this anger even in Season 2 where the giant robot action has to be juxtaposed with lovingly rendered hand to hand combat scenes because the former seems to offend them on a personal level.  It’s why despite the looks of Lotor’s ships, they’re just that, ships.  Part of me would not be surprised one bit to find out that the only time they combine into Lo-Tron or Volt Kaiser or whatever is in the toy set, because Lauren would not have the show sullied by such a thing!  (And yet there’s no pushback against Shiro, aka Leader-1.  Yes, Shiro is as boring as Leader-1.)

This season though, it’s become the absolute worst.  Lauren and Joaquim have, in addition to screwing their own plot over royally, seem to think this is a weird hybrid of Avatar and Star Blazers.  Part of me wouldn’t be surprised to find that this was her attempt at redoing Star Blazers, she found out Space Battleship Yamato 2199 existed, and just railroaded the script into Voltron, creating this ugly mess.  (Also Space Battleship Yamato 2199 is better, but that’s another story).

Part of me thinks that’s why the lions are sentient (sorta).  Because it makes them more self-sufficient, meaning we don’t have to spend as much time with them.  What’s really frustrating is that there’s so much you can do with this premise to make everyone happy, and essentially, no one is.  The bloom has come off the rose for all the shippers/fujioshi who are slowly realizing Klance will NEVER, EVER be canon, mecha fans have Darling in the Franxx to look forward to in January, and that’s freaking Studio Trigger, the studio that’s “saved anime” so many times it’s become a meme, fans of Avatar and Korra have already dissected the shoddy worldbuilding, and everyone else is left with a subpar space opera with a boring lead, the actual lead on a bus who can’t be put back in without making at least half the fans mad, and subpar action.

Also, Yamato’s theme music was better.

anonymous asked:

You've got to be on crack if you think that a full strength Komova wouldn't make Worlds, but post-pregnancy Mustafina is a lock. You say Russia has "enough DTYs and 6.0 UB routines"...Well sure, they have people with one or the other, but they don't have anyone with both a DTY and a 6.0+ UB. There's Gelya and Pereb, but since you've already called Komova a "liability", I'm assuming you've also written them off due to their headcase tendencies? Please explain who you think could replace her.

Lmfao jesus christ and I thought I was a crazy Komova stan.

First of all, you misread what I wrote - Komova doing AA at full-strength would be a lock for any team in the world. But do you really think she’s going to be a consistent world beater next year? All the sudden? At 23? After how many injuries? It’s not that she has NO chance of making the team, but you’re acting like she’s a lock when she’s had multiple failed comebacks + we haven’t seen her compete in two years.

Regarding Aliya - if you’ve followed gymnastics at all the past two quads, you should know damn well why I have more faith in her comeback than Vika’s.

Look, I hope you’re right. I would love to see her executing beautiful gymnastics and throwing away medals for Russia on the world stage again. I just don’t think it’s realistic.

anonymous asked:

Their body shapes and how they feel about themselves.

Okie Dokie! Sorry I had to ask! I wanted to make sure I was doing what you wanted! :) Coming right up, love <3. ~Admin Sarah


Belarus: Natayla isn’t the most confident, but she doesn’t have a bad relationship with her body either. She is a bit on the shorter side (5′3), but also loves to do acrobats, so she has a very fit, small body. She wouldn’t really want to change her body, but she could always see room for improvements. 

Belgium: Bella has actually called herself a “Plain Jane”. She would love if her hair grew out a little longer, or maybe if she had a better fashion sense. Her two brothers do typically make it hard for her to stand out, so she tries when she gets the chance. Aside from that, she actually has a fit body with some nice curves, she just has a hard time seeing that. 

Hungary: Elizabeta is another girl who is on the shorter side, at 5′3 (this surprised me) though she is confident in herself. She has a very strong body with nice assets that she wouldn’t change. Though, she sometimes is self conscience, and that’s because growing up she was never called pretty, and called boyish,  but she tries to ignore that, and not let it change how she sees herself.

Liechtenstein: Lily has a few body issues.. Even though she is still young, she is very embarrassed when it comes to her body. She doesn’t have many curves, and a small chest. A very boy-like body, and is often mistaken for a little boy. Not to mention her short hair, and she isn’t that tall, she’s hardly 5′2. Though, she often tries to make up her lack of body by wearing pretty dresses and ribbons in her hair. She doesn’t always let it get to her, though. Some days she can embrace who she is.

I haven't seen anybody talking about it, but I had a thought that if Mickey was around when Yvon first appeared, he would know that he's not her real father. It seems that Mickey was the only one who knew that Svetlana named Yev after her real father, so it could not be Yvon.

It’s been a minute since I’ve actually watched season 7 all the way through but I’m like 85% sure Kev called Yvon Yevgeny at first and didn’t start calling him by the other name until they learned that he wasn’t actually Svet’s father.

I’m rewatching it so I’ll correct myself if I’m wrong but I’m super certain I heard Kev call him his butchered version of “Yevgeny”

anonymous asked:

What I love about the Amnesia AU is the question of morality in terms of the physical. The term Amnesia isn't quite correct as Kylo basically ripped all of Hux as a person out. So... is a person their personality or their body? Is someone's crimes connected to who they are or to their anatomy. Yes, Hux did those things but with Hux gone and as good as dead, is it right to punish the body that's left behind? Oh, the debates the Republic/Resistance would have to have over this!

Ooooh, an interesting take on it! You’re right about the term ‘amnesiac’ being used, since Hux’s memory loss is intentional but I’m not quite sure what else you could call him, and I’m sure the Resistance wouldn’t either!

I suppose it’d depend on how much Hux forgets. If he forgets absolutely everything about himself–which I’m presuming is what the first anon meant to happen–then there’d be no experience there for his previous way of thinking/acting to be based on. So I agree, that with his memory gone, the Hux that destroyed the Hosnian system is as good as dead. Not even Luke or Rey can bring Hux back but they can comfirm that foul play has occured, not that Kylo would ever admit to anything.

Maybe he and the new Hux would sit together in their cell whilst the Republic argues amongst themselves. Kylo is heartbroken that it came to this and that Hux looks at him as though he means nothing to him but it’s the price they’ve had to pay. At least Hux is still alive this way. …Or is he?

Sure!

  • Prep a folder, call it Brown Merrill. Save it to the desktop or your downloads folder.
  • To unpack it, open the pyGFF editor. 
  • Then go to file > export all. Select the Brown Merrill erf.
  • You’ll get a popup window that looks like this. Navigate till you find where you saved your Brown Merrill folder. Select it as the export location of your files.
  • When it’s done, you’ll get a pop up. Click ‘okay’, then go to File > Open, navigate to your Brown Merrill folder. Open the .mor file.
  • Follow the steps I’d laid out in the previous ask for changing hairstyle. You can find the name of it by using the pyGFF editor to unpack that erf, and even copy the hairstyles over to the same folders (art/characters/playercharacter/elffemale, in this instance).
  • Once you change the line, hit the ‘save’ button under the editor window, then save your mor file.
  • Use the erf packer to pack - it’s an exe, you run it, you’ll get a window that looks like this:

Files From is your new Brown Merrill folder. Select that.

New ERF is your new erf, and clicking that will allow you to choose where to save it. Navigate to your Override folder, save it there. Then click ‘Create PAK’ and you’re all set!

anonymous asked:

Wait, who's whitewashed in New Mutants?

*Cracks knuckles*

Roberto “Bobby” da Costa AKA Sunspot is a biracial, white/Black Brazilian man. (The fact that he is Black is actually a crucial part of his origin story too, considering he discovered his powers because racist assholes physically and verbally assaulted him in the middle of a soccer game.)

This is Bobby in the comics, vs his actor, Henry Zaga:

They got the Brazilian thing right, but gee… something seems to be missing. I wonder what it is.

Cecilia Reyes is a Black Puerto Rican woman. She was originally going to be played by Rosario Dawson, (while not perfect, definitely better than who they ended up with) who backed out of the role for reasons unknown. (She probably saw what shit it is.)

This is Cecilia in the comics, vs her actress, Alice Braga:

Well, isn’t that weird. But what an innocent mistake, am I right?

Danielle “Dani” Moonstar AKA Mirage is a Cheyenne woman. A Cheyenne woman with dark skin, and who you could never call whitepassing. 
(Dani has also been one of Marvel’s punching bags for a while now, and I am still eagerly waiting for them to give her her powers back and let her rejoin the X-Men where she belongs instead of fucking around in Asgard.)

This is Dani in the comics, vs her actress, Blu Hunt:

Huh, interesting. I’m sure casting a whitepassing native girl is totally coincidentally matched with the other whitewashing, yeah?

“But Blu Hunt is a First Nations woman, shouldn’t you, a First Nations woman, be happy they didn’t cast a white woman to play Dani?” Well, yes and no. Yes, I’m not as angry as I would be if they casted a white actress, as Hollywood ever so frequently does. But we are not required to be happy for Hollywood doing the absolute bare minimum when they should be aiming for accuracy. You know what the optimal casting would be? A dark skinned Cheyenne woman. Like Dani. But I would have been pleased with at least a dark skinned native girl period. And when you pair this casting with the casting of the two other characters of colour, it’s really fucking interesting how supposedly out of their international search for actresses, they could only find a whitepassing girl as suitable to play this very much not whitepassing character.
Like, if someone came up to me and said “Hey, do you want to play Dani, we know she’s one of your favourite characters!” I would say no. Because while I am half Mi’kmaw, I am whitepassing, and Dani is not.

And finally…

Xi’an “Shan” Coy Manh AKA Karma is a Vietnamese lesbian, who eventually is also an amputee. Shan was the first leader of the New Mutants…

And yet she is not even in this movie. They just. Cut her out. She is the leader of the very team they are making the movie about and they erased her entirely from it.

“An Asian lesbian you say? Oh no. We can’t have that in our movie.” 

Now, all of these characters have faced whitewashing in the comics from time to time, as well. Comicbook whitewashing is a thing. But that doesn’t mean the movies should follow suit. I’ve seen people post pictures of whitewashed art of these characters and say “look, it’s great casting!” You are comparing whitewashing to whitewashing and need to shut the fuck up.

So, this is my biggest problem with the New Mutants movie, if you can even call it that.

…My second biggest problem is that it’s fairly fucking obvious what the plot of the movie is, based on the trailer and comic knowledge, and I’m gonna go ahead and skip a story about the kidnapping and torture of an Indigenous child with the ability to create illusions out of people’s fears and thus turns the place into a haunted house and by extension is the villain of the movie by what will surely be a Shocking™ plot twist.

Some things in the book that may point to Eddie being gay

A bunch of people sent me asks and messaged me asking to make a post about the scenes in the book that code Eddie as gay. Of course, there’s nothing in the book that straight up says “Eddie is gay,” but there are some things that may imply it:

- The most talked about thing is Eddie’s encounter with the leper. This scene in the book is a bit different than in the movie in that instead of just chasing Eddie looking super gross and disease ridden, the leper in the book offers to give Eddie a blowjob. 

This, being Eddie’s biggest fear, can be interpreted in several ways. Of course, the most obvious is the leper itself represents Eddie’s fear of disease and dirtiness. He feels that if he touches it, he will instantly begin to rot from the inside out. However, the offerings of a blowjob at first for a dime and then for free not only shows Eddie’s fear of sex in general (with how much his mother likely repressed him sexually, but also instilled a fear of sex) but also of his fear of sex with men. 

- At a point in the book, Eddie talks about how he suddenly began fearing going to church and celebrating communion. He says this fear began after a story that his Sunday School teacher told, but it definitely appears to reach much deeper than that. 

He says that he feels “not worthy” and as though he’d be “damned to Hell” which he, seemingly, has no reason to feel that way. It seems as though he knows he’s doing something “wrong” in the eyes of God. 

- The very first thing we learn about Eddie when we’re introduced to him as an adult in the beginning of the novel is that he does not love his wife, and that she is nearly a carbon copy of his mother. It is made very clear that Eddie did not want to marry her, and that he only did so because he found the same comfort and safety in her that he found in his mother. This can easily be taken as him marrying a “beard” or a woman just to have a wife. 

- In general, Eddie’s mother is very repressing and homophobic throughout the book. That seemed to be obvious, but I just thought I’d make that point clear. That definitely would have added to his internalized homophobia as a child.

- Eddie has many notable similarities and parallels to Adrian Mellon, one of the only openly gay characters in the book. They were both described as fragile, and suffered from asthma.  

Another small thing to note between Adrian and Eddie is that they’re called the same nicknames Don Hagarty (Adrian’s boyfriend) and Richie respectively. 

- Eddie only talks about having a “crush” on a girl once, and when he described why he liked her he only described her physical appearance. This is typical for gay kids, who want to seem as though they are attracted to the opposite sex but can only describe why they like them in the most obvious senses: the way they look. 

- There are some weird sexual innuendo scenes between Richie and Eddie that King decided to put in for whatever reason. I made a post about it. Oh, and while we’re here, here’s my post about scenes with Richie and Eddie in book if you’re interested. 

- I don’t know if this would count as something pointing to Eddie being gay, but I wanted to include it anyways. During the sewer sex scene with Bev, Eddie is very much not consenting and seems very not okay with the whole thing. Here’s my post about this that I made a while back and want more people to notice. 

- In the miniseries and throughout the whole book, he’s often called a girly boy, a queer boy, a fag, etc. 

- Finally, Stephen King gave Eddie characteristics that are often stereotyped with gay men. He’s small, fragile, feminine, clean, and easily frightened. As always, I’m not saying gay men have these characteristics, they’re just characteristics that people stereotype gay men to have, including the other gay men that King wrote in this book and in others. 

Sorry this post is so long. I wanted to make sure I could add quotes and references to as many of these as I could to back up my claims. Please feel free to add anything else from the books/miniseries/movie/etc. that you think show this as well!
