anonymous asked:

Hi, Lauren! I'm Brazilian and I love your blog! I've been with Jennoist since their beginning and I was really sad about their divorce. But I suspected a while ago that she was having something more with Chris. And frankly, now I'm really happy to know that they're dating. May I ask you something? What do you think of this new romance? I know that what we all (true fans) want is Mel's happiness. But do you like Chris? Do you like them together? I think they are so cute together and match a lot!

Here I am again! Rsrs May I make you a request if it’s not bad for you? Could you keep us updated here on the blog when you have any news or photo related to their relationship? Thank you in advance for your reply and, again, I love your blog! Sorry for my english btw! <3

Hi, thank you for the kind words :)

Generally speaking, as you said, if my faves are happy, I’m happy. And from the little we know about Melissa and Chris, it’s seems that he is making her happy. I think her general mood has seemed much more positive in the first 3 months of 2017 than the last 3 months of 2016, put it that way. 

As for Chris himself, I don’t know a whole lot about him but I have a couple friends who are big fans and I’ve only heard good things: activist, outspoken mental health awareness advocate etc. and from what I’ve been told he and Melissa are well matched in interests and personality etc. So yeah, I support them together, I think every Melissa fan (and every Chris fan) should naturally. I’m not gonna revolve my fandom life around them in the way I did with jennoist and would urge caution to others who are going to do so because I can testify from experience that it comes as a painful shock if a rl otp turns out to not be as perfect as you thought…that being said they have my full support and I am happy for them and given that I keep my blog updated on Melissa’s life I will naturally include her relationship with Chris too.

PS. Your English is great!

I love Meryl Streep even more now, somehow.

Transcript:

“I love you all. You’ll have to forgive me. I’ve lost my voice in screaming and lamentation this weekend. And I have lost my mind sometime earlier this year. So I have to read. Thank you, Hollywood Foreign Press [Association]. Just to pick up on what Hugh Laurie said, you and all of us in this room, really, belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now. Think about it. Hollywood, foreigners, and the press. But who are we? And, you know, what is Hollywood anyway? It’s just a bunch of people from other places. I was born and raised and created in the public schools of New Jersey. Viola [Davis] was born in a sharecropper’s cabin in South Carolina, grew up in Central Falls, Long Island. Sarah Paulson was raised by a single mom in Brooklyn. Sarah Jessica Parker was one of seven or eight kids from Ohio. Amy Adams was born in Italy. Natalie Portman was born in Jerusalem. Where are their birth certificates? And the beautiful Ruth Negga was born in Ethiopia, raised in— no, in Ireland, I do believe. And she’s here, nominated for playing a small town girl from Virginia. Ryan Gosling, like all the nicest people, is Canadian. And Dev Patel was born in Kenya, raised in London, is here for playing an Indian raised in Tasmania. Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. If you kick ‘em all out, you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.

They gave me three seconds to say this. An actor’s only job is to enter the lives of people who are different from us and let you feel what that feels like. And there were many, many, many powerful performances this year that did exactly that — breathtaking, passionate work. There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart — not because it was good. There was nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it. I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life. And this instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing. Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.

This brings me to the press. We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage. That’s why our founders enshrined the press and its freedoms in our constitution. So I only ask the famously well-heeled Hollywood Foreign Press and all of us in our community to join me in supporting the committee to protect journalists. Because we’re going to need them going forward. And they’ll need us to safeguard the truth.

One more thing: Once, when I was standing around on the set one day whining about something, we were going to work through supper, or the long hours or whatever, Tommy Lee Jones said to me, “Isn’t it such a privilege, Meryl, just to be an actor?” Yeah, it is. And we have to remind each other of the privilege and the responsibility of the act of empathy. We should all be very proud of the work Hollywood honors here tonight. As my friend, the dear departed Princess Leia said to me once, “Take your broken heart, make it into art.” Thank you.”

even isn’t from now on “the guy with a mental illness”. even is the guy we saw fall in love with isak valtersen. he is the guy who listens to nas and has posters of him, but who also listens to gabrielle and john legend and god knows who else. he is the guy who likes to lip-sync and dance. he is the guy you’ll be able to talk to about pretty much all the movies that were made in the last century. mainstream and indie, he’ll most likely have seen it. he is the guy who has star wars posters in his room. who likes to sit by the window when it’s still sunny outside. he is the guy who will call people out if they make hasty generalizations about certain groups of people. he is the guy who loves baz luhrmann and who can probably quote all of his movies because he’s seen them dozens of times. 

he is the artistic guy who likes to draw and create perfect sets for his stop motions that have silly scenarios. he is the guy who likes to express his feelings through his drawings. he is the guy on the bicycle. he is the guy who remembers which spice isak likes on his toasts. he is the guy who can beatbox (unless isak is there with him, then he just cracks up). he is the guy who fogs up windows so he can draw hearts on them. he is the guy who probably has all the seinfeld memes ever made stored in his phone. he is the guy who cooks breakfast and has the perfect trick to make good scrambled eggs. he is the guy who likes to play fifa, and concentrates really hard when he does. he is the guy who likes to stroke isak’s hair and his face, like he’s the most precious and valuable thing to him. he is the sweet guy who is nice and polite with anyone he meets for the first time. he is the charismatic guy whose smile can light up a entire room.

even is the guy who is all of these things, and who also happens to have a mental illness 

You are loved.

I Just wanted to let you guys know despite the aftermath of the election, I believe that everything is going to be okay. We cannot let negativity control our thoughts and actions. I know it’s hard right now and I am equally as upset as the rest of you.

However, If we continue to fight for our rights and remain strong, we will prevail!
In the meantime, I will continue to work hard, offering you more educational and fun comics!

We all need some cuteness during these dark and depressing times after all.
I hope I managed to make someone smile today, and just remember, you are loved and appreciated.

Have a great night.

GO TO THE BASEMENT TUMBLR

I’ve spent a lot of time deciding whether or not I should write this post now, when I’m upset and salty, but with every negative comment about Russia and Russian people I was growing more assured that you, guys, really should read this and fucking THINK.
Here’s the thing: I LOVE Sherlock fandom. I love the Russian part of it, full of incredibly talented people who literally make ART and I love this big English-speaking part, too, you’re fantastic. We don’t ALWAYS get along, there’s a bunch of really bad toxic people talking shit. These guys are everywhere. But the big question is: are those the ones talking right now or is the whole fandom full of shit?
You know what happened: Russian Federal Channel leaked the new episode before the actual air date. Let’s not talk about all the “fake ep” thing with multiple endings theory and whatever and focus on the part where SOMEONE. FROM THE TV. FUCKED UP. We don’t know and probably we’ll NEVER know if it was an accident or this certain someone did it on purpose, but RUSSIAN DUB OF TFP HAS ENDED UP SOMEWHERE WHERE IT SHOULDN’T BE.
We, Russians, all reacted differently. Some people stopped whatever they were doing and went to watch the episode (and I’m SURE that most of you would have probably done the same thing), some were very upset and quit all the social media to avoid SPOILERS, some started spreading these spoilers EVERYWHERE (who can judge them? It is Sherlock after all).
That’s it. That’s the whole story. We didn’t have a referendum on deciding should we leak TFP ep or not. We didn’t ask the channel to do this. We are probably even more surprised than you are, AND lots of people are not even going to watch the leaked episode.
When I logged in to my tumblr account I EXPECTED something like this. You, guys, are not really fond of Russians or Russia in general, I understand that. It’s funny and upsetting and we just kinda accepted this shit. However I never expected the amounts of HATE towards our nation and our country and WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?
I haven’t said anything to the yoi fandom, because, well, homophobia is smth we really are responsible for and I have nothing to say but THIS.
THIS IS BULLSHIT.
PULL YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR ASSES AND SHUT. THE. FUCK. UP.
STOP INSULTING US AND BLAMING US FOR THE SHIT WE HAD NO CONTROL OVER.
I really REALLY wanted to finish this with wishing you love and peace, but not this time, no.
YOU SHOULD GO TO THE BASEMENT, YOU, IDIOTS.
THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU’VE DONE. About all the people like me (angry, bitter and disappointed), or unlike me (probably REALLY upset and insulted). THINK AND
STOP.

Honestly, people may say that the scores/achievements in Yuri on Ice are unrealistic, and sure, perhaps that is the case now, but who knows what we’ll see in a couple of years?

One of the things I love about figure skating is how it’s constantly evolving, constantly changing, the skaters constantly one-upping each other. Back in the day people thought quads were impossible until Kurt Browning landed a quad toe loop in competition in 1988 (the quad timeline is actually really interesting), after which skaters began attempting to do quadruple rotations on more difficult jumps (as well as jumping them in combinations), to the point where having multiple quads in your program is considered a norm these days (in fact not having one in a program may be considered a handicap). No one has ever successfully landed a quad axel, but who knows what the future will bring?

As you’ve probably heard by now, recently Nathan Chen became the first skater to successfully land five quads in a single program in competition. I’m assuming you’ve already seen the spectacular performance, but if you haven’t yet, (or if you’d like to watch it again) here it is:

The amazing thing about it is that previously, people thought that four quads was the maximum a person could do in one program, that doing five was pushing yourself too hard. Nathan Chen proved that wrong. Whether doing five quads in one performance will become the new norm for figure skaters or whether it’ll be something many will dream of but only few will achieve is yet to be known, but it may very well be a paradigm shift, similar to the one that took place after the first successful quad ever.

How does this relate to Yuri on Ice, you may wonder?

Maybe through the fact that with this single performance Nathan Chen topped his personal best by 35 points?

The characters in YOI are shown surpassing their previous scores and performances on multiple occasions by changing/improving their programs and their amazing results aren’t necessarily exaggerations, as proved by Nathan Chen (who, friendly reminder, is only 17 years old).

How do their scores compare exactly? Nathan Chen scored a total of 318 points. Meanwhile, the characters in YOI:

Both Yuris broke world records as well as their own personal bests, so I would say their scores are justified. The rest certainly seems a little high, especially compared to the previous year’s GPF

but we can assume this is either artistic liberty of the writers or just a way of highlighting how good those fictional skaters really are.

Figure skating is partly about overcoming your own limits and surpassing others’ expectations. The high scores we see above could be a testament to how hard all the skaters have fought in order to get where they are.

All in all, the great achievements we see in Yuri on Ice may not necessarily seem realistic, but in a way, they are a good reflection of what the sport is in real life - a sport that changes the moment someone special appears. In a way, achieving unrealistic things is an intrinsic part of making a difference (and making a name for yourself) in figure skating. As the ever-evolving sport, figure skating is partly about doing the impossible, making history.

That is what Yuri on Ice showed us in its 12-episode run and that is what Nathan Chen proved during 2017 US Nationals.

Yakov Theory

Yakov and Lila are going to trouble in ep 9 and Yakov is trouble for the future.

First things first Yakov is a great coach. He has trained Victor, Yurio and Georgi which is quite the feat. He must of been a top figure skater himself in the past.

And perhaps in ep9 when Yuri performs he will have a flashback and it will remind him of himself and Lila’s past love. Maybe making him regret how badly he treated Yuri.(more on that later in the post)

Now Yakov has known Victor the longest out of any of our characters so its fair to say he knows Victor & his past better than the rest of us. So we may get more of Victors past out of him next ep in conversations with Yuri.

Yakov is concerned about Victors future, not only for Victor but more for himself.

 Victor is his star pupil and by threatening him by saying he ‘wont be able to come back’ to skating is a no threat to Victor. He is confident enough, that he can take time off and come back.

Still Yakov continues to play with this prospect, in a vain attempt to get Victor back.

So Yakov will do anything in his power to get him back, considering Yurio & Georgi are not flawless winners like Victor.

Victor also has star power, which is good for his image as well. He probably gets lots of advertising money for a star like that.

 Also to Yakov Victor is still a selfish man playing coach.

Perhaps Yakov is right maybe in the past Victor may have done it for the attention but our Victor has change he has clearly fallen head over heels for Yuri.

aww I love them <3

Now Yakov continues to give Victor the cold shoulder of disapproval #megashade

Now for a second here apart from his own gains of getting Victor back perhaps he pities Yuri or will at least pretend to in ep 9.

He either feels sick that Victor is using Yuri for his own gain or he feels sick that his own star pupil has ran off and disgraced him just to play pretend coach.

Not only does Victor’s coaching undermine his own reputation as a coach and by extension any one he trains.

Now back to ep 8

Victor clearly trusts Yakov enough to leave Yuri in his care.

BIG MISTAKE VICTOR!!!!!!!

Yakov wants Yurio to win it is his last chance of having a winner at the GPF (Georgi is out) and no way in hell is he going to let Yuri best him.

So what’s he going to do it?

In all likely-hood he along with scary Lila will tell Yuri about Victors past.

How much of a selfish boy he is etc. and here’s the clincher Yakov or Lila will say that Victor did it to impress the audience and strengthen his own career rather than helping our Yuri.

Anxiety is something that doesn’t go away easily, it will crawl back and Yuri will doubt himself, Victor and their relationship.

Enter our saviour Yurio

Now Yurio I expect will come and support him and tell him how much Victor has changed due to Yuri. Inspiring Yuri to do his act and get to the GPF.

Victor and Yuri will meet up but the moods going to be darker but that is for another theory :)

Chris Schistad deserves more screentime. And if you don’t agree because you think he’s an annoying fuckboy just think of Vilde, how we would still hate her if we didn’t know about her nice side, her problems…
At first we all hated her but then we started to learn more and more about her and now we love her or at least appreciate her enough to want her happiness. We all wanted her to deal with her eating disorder. We all wanted her to find love.
But if she had had less screentime, we would only know about her annoying side.
Same goes with Chris. He’s underrated.
It’s not about how hot he is. It’s about his personality and what it’s hiding. We know nothing about him and it’s a pity.

I know all I can do right now is talk about the Renora scene on the airship but can we please talk about the renora scene on the airship? But most importantly..REN’S EXPRESSIONS. 

When he first looks at her, he looks a little unsure but then his face gradually turns into a soft expression. 

It’s like Ren made the realization that he loves Nora (although, he probably realized that earlier when Nora pushed him under the building…or earlier than that but it’s now more apparent that the Grimm that killed his parents is dead and that’s A LOT off his shoulders and mind). 

AND THEN HE STARTS MOVING HIS HAND TO HOLD HER HAND AND UGH THIS SCREENCAP DOESN’T DO ENOUGH TO CAPTURE HIS GROWING SMILE. ONE MILLION BLESSINGS TO THE ANIMATION TEAM FOR SAYING SO MUCH WITH JUST THE TINIEST LITTLE MOVEMENTS OF HIS FACE.

NORA’S INITIAL REACTION IS SO PURE AND CUTE AND EVERYTHING I EVER NEEDED. (And Ren’s face is just…wow…have you ever seen him more serene with the world because I haven’t)

And then Ren puts his hand on-top of Nora’s and Nora holds up his hand and I can just see her examining it like “he really put his hand on my hand”. The way they readjust their hands just kills me in the best way. 

NORA’S EXPR/ESSION HERE IS EVEN PURER THAN THAT LAST ONE AND IT JUST SCREAMS “REALLY?”. Like, she’s looking at him to make sure what’s happening is really happening…that he might have the same feelings for her that she’s felt for him for so many years. 

AND HE JUST CONFIRMS EVERYTHING SHE’S THINKING (AND HE /KNOWS/ SHE’S THINKING) BY GIVING A LITTLE NOD/CLOSING HIS EYES. 

THAT LOOK RIGHT THERE I WILL TALK ABOUT THIS LOOK ALL DAMN DAY, WEEK, YEAR, AND CENTURY. THAT IS LOOK IS LOVE.

I thought this entire scene did an amazing job of developing their relationship and taking it beyond being close friends/crushes with just the smallest details in the animation. A kiss would have amazing and gladly accepted, but I thought their expressions and body language did soooo much more than what a kiss could have done here (besides, there’s plenty more time for kisses in the next volume ;)). 

Nice try, Malfoy
  • draco: you know what granger?
  • hermione: what do you want now malfoy?
  • draco: my father told me i can have anything i want in my life because i was a malfoy
  • hermione: i dont want to know any more about your selfishness malf-
  • draco: but then i realized it was all a lie
  • hermione: is there a point in this? you're seriously wasting my-
  • draco: i knew it was a lie because when i saw you, i wanted you but i never had you *stares intensely into her eyes*
  • hermione: *looks intently at him* nice try malfoy. no, i wont let you copy off of my potions essay. now will you please let me read in peace?
  • draco: dammit! i thought it would work. please? just this one time??
  • blaise: dammit guys, i thought that was for real
  • blaise: *cries silently in the corner because he ships dramione and was given false hope*
Never have I found the saying “it’s all or nothing” more relatable than I do right now.
I always thought that it was about the effort you put into something or someone.
And yes, I guess it is.
But today, I realised that we’re either all or nothing.
There can’t and won’t be any in-betweens.
Everything is either perfect or catastrophic.
And dear Lord, maybe that’s why I’m so afraid of falling in love with you.
Because I know if something happened we’d burst in flames instantly.
—  Yet I don’t know if I can stop myself.


patiience

so, my buddy littledivinity and i have been talking beauty & the beast a lot, because ‘tis the season, and we somehow stumbled upon the idea of the story being told about a middle aged belle and the beast instead of youngins, and how that would make the story even more resonant.

and then just now i randomly thought, “what if nicole kidman and ewan mcgregor starred in such a film?”, because my soul needs nicole kidman and ewan mcgregor to fall in love again on a movie screen like it needs few other things in this life. plus, you know, musical, bright colors, awesomeness, hurrah!

and then i thought, ‘but wait, actually, what i really want in this life, even more than brightly colored musicals, is more lowkey and lovely fairytale movies like exquisite and incomparable 1998 masterpiece ever after

and just picture it!

nicole kidman is the longtime spinster school teacher who lives in a quaint vaguely magical 19th century-esque country village, but she’s a badass teacher who exposes her students to different philosophies of thought and probably takes them outside for nature studies and calisthenics. (so, basically, miss stacy from anne of green gables.) the school board hates her, probably, and is very suspicious of what kind of IDEAS she’s filling the local kids’ heads with (why does she keep saying it’s okay for girls not to want to be wives and mothers, or that it’s all right for boys to cry???? is it possible that she is A WITCH???), but her parents were very well regarded in the town when they were still alive and so that bought her some respect for awhile. but there’s a new fancy schmancy family with school aged kids in town, and they’re extremely disapproving of miss nicole, and trying to find a way to oust her as schoolteacher and replace her with a man who is probably very similar in temperament to mr. collins from pride & prejudice. a man who will put patriarchal gender roles back into childhood education!

meanwhile, ewan mcgregor is a grumpy old hermit duke or something who once had great wealth and privilege but has fallen into disrepair. maybe someone cursed (magically? complicated vengeance-ly, a la the count of monte cristo? who knows) his family long ago due to their shady rich people business dealings, and his father killed himself to escape the scandal and his mother died of heartbreak and his fiancee who he thought loved him steadfastly dumped him to marry another, and now ewan’s the last surviving member of his once-great family and he just lives alone this grand old manor house that has gone totally to seed. he isn’t an actual beast, because it seems like in this day and age that’s going to require levels of CGI that my quaint b&tb retelling movie just don’t need, but let’s say that he’s quite unshaven and dirty and generally off-putting and he sometimes ventures out into the forest that separates his estate from the village, but is never seen actually frequenting the village. there are abundant rumors that the forest and manor house are haunted by a beast/ghost/warlock/vampire (how does he SURVIVE if he doesn’t come to the weekly market for food???), and everyone knows you don’t go there. also, people like to gossip a ton about his family and the scandal even though it was decades ago and they all dead. because people suck.

so one night, some of nicole’s rowdy teen pupils maybe steal some wine from one of their parents’ liquor cabinets and venture into the woods and dare each other to go past the gate of his manor house, and he catches them at it and gets HELLA PISSED @ THESE UPPITY HOOLIGANS INVADING HIS PROPERTY. kids today!!!!!!!!! he probably locks them in the stables so he can deliver them a 5 hour lecture on why they suck, and also why all of humanity sucks. which isn’t the worst fate ever, but, like, he kind of looks like a straight up crazy ax murderer (crazy hair! crazy beard! tattered clothes! definitely hasn’t bathed this month!!!), so there’s some serious panic in the hearts of these kids.

Keep reading

I’m a historian.  Don’t know how many of you know that.  I’m getting a PhD in history, with a specialty in dictatorship, trauma, and childhood.  It’s a field I’ve never wanted to actually be this useful in real life…

I’ve been dreading a Trump presidency from the outset of his candidacy because I’ve studied dictatorial regimes and the fragile lines between democratic and authoritarian rule for the entirety of my adult life.  I know what the collapse of democratic rule looks like. 

This is it people.  We’re at that point.  It’s not a joke, it’s not hyperbole, it’s not conjecture.  We’re about to live in a xenophobic police state.  That’s about to become our reality.

Now, more than ever before, it is essential for us to stick together.  Love one another, support one another, stand with one another.  All forms of oppression are linked.  People like Trump will want to divide us.  They’ll want to break us down from the inside and outside.  They’ll want to fracture our spirit and our sense of worth.  Don’t let them. Know that you matter, know that you are not alone, know that small acts of kindness and solidarity can mean the difference between life and death. 

I can use history to make predictions based on past knowledge, but the present and the future are constantly being rewritten.  We are the agents of change in this world.  We can make a difference. 

***Can you believe we have to go through a 3 month hiatus until we get new episodes again? What to do on Mondays from now on? Well, I know it is not the same but how about reading some amazing Malec fics? Because there simply can’t be enough Malec love out there and somehow it makes the wait to see these two back on our screens a bit more bearable if you ask me.

Anyway, I hope you gonna enjoy this 4th edition as much as the previous ones. Again, a huge thank you to everyone who left notes and/or told me how much they enjoyed these recs. It’s very much appreciated, so yes, if you want me to continue doing this, let me know, okay? Have fun reading!***


KISS WITH A FIST by @clockworkswans [ M | AU | 225k | WIP | Kiss With A Fist universe #1 ]

When agent Alec Lightwood is given his first kill hit, he doesn’t expect much trouble. Of course, he also doesn’t expect it to be a cheerful assassin who lands him in a whole load of trouble.
Enter Magnus Bane: an assassin turned thief who reluctantly teams up with Alec - and The Clave - after he pisses off a very important and powerful crime boss, Valentine Morgenstern.
In a world of violence and unjust laws, can the two put aside their differences and work together?
Aka: in which Alec is sent to kill Magnus, doesn’t, and then really wishes he had. (but not really).


WILD LIFE by @crazyellephantrambles [ not rated | AU | 69k | complete ]

Alec Lightwood likes to go on road trips. He doesn’t pick up hitchhikers. But the one time he does, it’s Magnus. He’s in for an adventure or maybe even fall in love.


ANYTHING by @baneismyexistence [ M | 36.2k | complete | Anything verse #1 ]

Magnus would do anything for Alec, and Alec doesn’t know what to do with that.


EVERYTHING by @baneismyexistence [ M | 70k | complete | Anything verse #2 ]

With Valentine still at large, a crisis threatens to split the Shadow World in two, testing the loyalties of everyone on both sides of the line. But choosing between duty and honor, family and love is never easy, especially when war is on the horizon.


AND YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN MINE TOO by @magicandarchery [ E | AU | 10.4k | WIP ]

New graduates and best friends Magnus and Alec have both graduated from the University of Idris with top honors. Graduation and family expectations, however, carved out two very different paths for their lives.

Making the age-old promise on graduation night to get married if they were still single by thirty had been an easy agreement to make. There was no chance it would, or even could, ever possibly happen. It simply wasn’t legal.

When Magnus coincidentally re-enters Alec’s life eight years later, each are confronted with the unsettled reality of their lives, and the rekindling of long-buried feelings for the other. They decide to reinstate the promise they had made as motivation to get back into the dating scene.

But can they push aside their own feelings for each other as they go on this journey of finding true love?

Or: the “Single by 30” Malec AU that nobody asked for.


STAR WARS: A SEARCH FOR JUSTICE by @sweetillusionketz [ M | AU | 9.8k | WIP ]

After the MORTAL WAR that wiped out the JEDI ORDER and the reconstruction of THE CLAVE to govern the galaxy, military force, THE CIRCLE, has been monitoring planets for any trace of remaining intergalactic terrorism and obliterating possible threats under the name of peace. Each strike leaves death and destruction behind.

Former Senator, General Luke Garroway, leads the DOWNWORLDER RESISTANCE, a counterpoint to the Circle, in hope of finding enough evidence of abuse of power to dismantle the organisation and restore real peace and justice to the galaxy.

In order to do so, Luke has sent Izzy Lightwood, his most daring pilot, and the mysterious Magnus Bane to search for survivors of the last attack…


FANTASY by @theonetruenorth [ E | PWP | 3.5k | complete | Shadowhunters Headcanons #20 ]

“Mhmm,” Magnus hummed as they broke apart and he rocked his hips minutely, the slight movement enough to make them both shiver. “This is getting dangerously close to one of my fantasies, so maybe we should stop, if you don’t want this to go any further.”

“What fantasy?” Alec murmured, craning his neck up again to brush his lips against Magnus’ but the warlock teasingly moved just out of reach.

“Well,” Magnus started, looking at Alec through half-closed eyes and with a hint of a smirk tugging at the corner of his mouth, “I have never had sex inside the Institute.”

WE CAN SOLVE THIS TOGETHER by @softshumjr [ E | AU | 58.9k | WIP ]

Alec and Magnus have been friends since high school. They both love each other but are afraid to say anything because they believe the other one doesn’t feel the same way and it’ll ruin their friendship.

Alec and Jace are working on an overdose case and are stuck. Can Magnus be the one to help them solve the case?


UNKISS ME by @sweetillusionketz [ G | AU | 11.3k | complete ]

Magnus Bane loved New York. I mean, what other city in the world held Christmas raves?

He especially loved it when he managed to convince Ragnor and Catarina to join him. Spending time with your chosen family during the holidays was the best thing in the world.

The only thing that could make it even better, however, would be getting to know that very attractive stranger that just wouldn’t take his eyes off Magnus. Tall, dark and handsome was just what Magnus wanted to end his amazing night.

All he needed was an opportunity and it came, in the form of a well-placed mistletoe.

Magnus rarely (if ever) wakes before Alec, but this time he has… intentions.


FIRST TIME ALEC TOPS by @theonetruenorth [ E | 1.9k | complete | Shadowhunters Headcanons #9 ]

Somehow, they end up with Alec flat on his back and Magnus straddling him, his hands cradling Alec’s jaw while his tongue explores the nephilim’s mouth. It’s a slow, lazy, and unhurried kiss. The kind of kiss that says ‘there isn’t anywhere else I would rather be right now’ and ‘I want to explore every inch of your body’ and ‘I love you’.


CHAIN YOU UP by WholockedHunter [ E | 3.6k | complete ]

Magnus and Alec are having some kinky sex …


CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF OF YOU by @deepbutdazzlingdarkness [ E | PWP | 2.1k | complete | The Thirst Is Real #3 ]

If Magnus were more alert, he probably would’ve recognized the obvious signs of someone being in the loft: the boots by the front door, the leather jacket laying on the couch, the empty wine glass sitting on his drink cart, but as it is, he doesn’t notice anything off until he’s standing right in front of his bedroom door and realizes the light is on.


I NEED YOU SO MUCH CLOSER by @deepbutdazzlingdarkness [ E | 5.2k | complete | The Thirst Is Real #4 ]

Work has been keeping Alec and Magnus apart for a couple of weeks and once they finally see each other again, Alec can barely control himself.

AKA the first time they have sex at the Institute. Also the first time they say “I love you”.

NO PLACE FOR A HERO by @one100suns [ M | 20.4k | complete | Battle Scars #3 ]

For Magnus and Alec, navigating their relationship is hard enough without outside forces trying to tear them a part. Quite literally in some cases.


PRESSED UP AGAINST YOU, EVERYTHING IS OKAY by @matsdaddario [ E | 3.6k | complete | Lovely Firsts #2 ]

It’s new, this feeling like even though everything is falling apart that this part of his world makes sense. He likes it, wants to keep it.

“Hi,” he breathes. Magnus stands in front of him, and Alec can’t help himself, doesn’t want to stop himself, from leaning down that little bit to capture Magnus’s mouth with his own.


I SEE FIRE by @lecrit [ M | AU | 12.1k | complete ]

There was one simple and unique rule about being friends with Magnus and Alec: never, ever, no matter the circumstances, not even if you were drunk as an armada of skunks, engage into a debate about pop culture with either of them, and especially not the both of them.


TRUST ME by @sweetillusionketz [ T | AU | 18.5k | complete ]

Magnus Bane has a problem with that arrogant brat that keeps showing his face to every important street race in the city. Damn Jace Lightwood and his annoying habit of winning even though he’s just a stupid high school boy. That’s insulting.

Fuck Jace. But more importantly, fuck his sweet looking older brother, who just happen to not have the slightest idea of who Magnus is. If everything goes according to plan, Magnus will have put Jace back to his insignificant place and gotten lucky with a gorgeous oblivious guy.

Perfect plan is perfect. Nothing could go wrong.

I know we are all “fanqueering” (not sure that’s a real word) about Sanvers and I am too OBVIOUSLY. But Maggie ? I’m gonna talk about Maggie. Because Maggie. I love her. Floriana Lima is perfect for this role, there’s not doubt about it. And she’s getting insanely good at her role the more her emotions are solicited. Even though her storyline -for now I hope- revolves around Alex’s coming out and figuring herself out in and out of their relationship I don’t think Alex is fully aware of how much Maggie is falling hard and fast for her. I’ve watched their scenes a bunch of times already and I’ve kept on noticing how Maggie’s face is full of expressions. It’s both exalirating and heartbraking honestly. Especially in that episode. Even the first words that came out of her mouth were her being afraid of already doing something wrong “is that okay?” like she doesn’t know if it is or not to wear Alex’s shirt. she smiles and she’s happy and she cannot believe that Alex is hers. She even cannot let her a few hours without contacting her and she knows that something terrible could happened “in their line of work”. So she goes to see Alex and she’s not even fighting back. She’s not even questioning what Alex is saying, calling her, them, a freaking mistake. She’s thinking “ok here it goes again, AGAIN”. She’s not fighting for Alex for their relationship because it has happened too many times before. Too many girls have bailed on her at the first sight of a problem or when the shiny phase wore off. She’s just so used to it that even if this is Alex she just walks away, probably thinking she ain’t good enough and because she learnt the hard way that she doesn’t stay where she’s not wanted anymore. And it broke my heart. That scene -albeit not well-written I gotta admit, it was (kinda?) rushed but anyway- literaly broke me into pieces. And it was all because of Floriana Lima’s acting. She’s insanely good when it comes to emotions. In a few seconds you get where she comes from and why Maggie is responding -or lack thereof- like that. So she just leaves. She lets Alex speak to her, treat her like that cause it seems Alex already made up her mind, she isn’t giving them a slight chance and she doesn’t even understand why. At first. Then it all became clear but even though she understands where Alex comes from, how could she be sure that she’s not gonna run again ? She broke up with her. In the DEO, just like that. And that’s what the line “you get one, Alex” is all about. “You get to run away from me because you freaked out this one time, only” because if this happen again she won’t be able to recover from it. Not this time, not with Alex. She’s hurt and want to protect herself. But god this is Alex, and she’s never felt like this before so she forgives her and hugs her, not tight even though she’s relieved and afraid at the same fucking time. That hug is all she needed, all she ever wanted. That hug is hope. And they’re both in this together, but boy Maggie is falling SO hard. Alex doesn’t even see it, yet. Well, we all saw it. I saw it and I want to protect and hug Maggie so damn hard.

Can’t Keep My Hands To Myself

Summary: Reader and Peter are dating for awhile but the team don’t know about it, until after a night they start to get suspicious.

Warnings: hot make out session? Peter being the precious shy human being that he is.

A/N: as promised, not an angst, we just need more cute shy Peter in our lifes.

“Baby, I should get going… Fuck!” Peter moans as I shut him up with another kiss.

    I’ve been making out with Peter for hours now. While at it, I’ve managed to make him blush a lot and I loved it. I loved how even though me and Peter have been together for months now, he would still get embarassed by some normal stuffs, like when I hold his hand at school, or when I would sneak behind him while he was studying and peper a few kisses on his neck or cheek. But the thing I loved the most would definitly be when we make out, he would let out little whimpers, some moans and if I tried hard enough I could get him to curse a bit, just like I did right now.

“Yeah… You should…” I say between long and wet kisses. My hand sneaks on his shirt and I lightly scratch his abdomen and he breathes in sharply.

“Y/N, I’m serious, if anyone come in they-” I leave his lips and bite a sweet spot he had on his neck and he shuts up again.

“Woman, you’re gonna be the death of me”

“First of all, you have yet to make me a woman, and I can’t wait for that” I say biting lightly his earlobe “And second, have I told you how cute you look when I’m on top of you?”

    A blush starts creeping on his cheek, I smirk at him. We kiss a couple more times. Peter’s lips were a bit swollen from a few hard and needy kisses we shared. Beside that, it was a sweet make out session. It just might have lasted longer than a ‘sweet make out session’ should last. But I didn’t mind, I would never get enough of Peter. Of course we haven’t done ‘it’ yet. But we both knew that every time we spent together the sexual tension would grow a bit. It shouldn’t take long for eventually happen.

“Baby, I really should go, if I get home late again May will bombard me with question I’m not really up to answering and-” He inhales sharply again “The team will get suspicious, we’ve been here for too long now”

“They think we’re making some school project, honey, don’t worry about them”

“Y/N… You know… I really want to do it with you… But I’d rather not be in some place where we can get caught so easily” He says between kisses and moans.

“So you’re gonna take me to some motel?” I tease.

“I- huh… I haven’t-”

“I’m messing with you, silly” I laugh and give him one last breathtaking kiss.

“You’re an ass”

“You love my ass” I take his hands that were on my hips and place it on my butt, making him squeeze it for a bit, I moan softly on his ear.

“Fine, that’s it”

“What-?” Before I could ask him something he flips me. Peter never been on top, and now that he was and the way he was holding me… God, I wish he could take me right here and right now.

“God… Peter… I… Jesus” Now I was the one at his mercy, and it felt good “Pete-” I don’t get to finish his name when he kiss some sweet spot on my neck and I let out a loud whimper. We both froze.

“Did I just do that?” He asks.

“Holy shit, I think you just did” He smiles like a kid who just got his favorite toy “Who are you and what have you done to my sweet boyfriend?” 

“What can I say, you bring out the best of me”

    We both laugh and he leans in to give me one more kiss. This one was different, it was slow, sweet and patient, like if he was savouring me. I can’t say that I didn’t love it.

“I really should go, love” He says sadly, his face still close to mine, I rub the tip of our noses together in a cute eskimo kiss. He smiles at me

“I know, darling” I say as sadly as he did.

    He gives me a sweet kiss on the forehead and gets off of me. I already missed his body on top of mine. He packs his things and I watch him do it, I always wondered how we ended up together. Peter was so sweet, shy and precious, I was his opposite, like, for real, I would be the prankster avenger, the funny and hyperative one. When we would be together, I’d be the one to start ou make out sessions and he would be flustered at first, but soon he’d relax.

“Underoos! You better get going, your aunt will be worried and-”

    Tony says while entering the room. I sit against the headboard and try to straighten my hair, it was probably a mess. I put a hand on my lips, trying to cover my swollen lips and the smile that was creeping on it too.

“What are you kids up to?”

“N-Nothing, we just finished a project and I’m heading home”

“Right…” Tony trails off, he was getting suspicious “There’s a car waiting for you”

“Thanks, Mr Stark” It was so annoyingly sweet how Peter would kiss Stark’s ass, I wish he would kiss my ass like that, wait wha-.

“You’re welcome”

“See you at school, Y/N”

“See ya’, Parker”

“So, Parker how long have been you and Y/N…?” Tony asks while we were driving to my house.

“W-What?”

“C’mon Parker, don’t put that on me, you’re really gonna tell me that all that time you two have been together in that room, with that girl that always have heart eyes for you when you’re not looking, and nothing happenes? Nothing at all?”

“S-She has heart eyes for me when I’m not looking?”

“Damn, Peter, you’re really oblivious, aren’t you? That girl is in love with you, you should do something about that”

“W-Well, I-” I’ve never been that embarassed in my life “I’ll do something about it yeah”

“Okay, but I don’t wanna know about you guys doing ‘it’, I’m only allowing it you guys stay in the first base at least for a while”

“Bye, Mr Stark!”

    I laugh and left the car. I couldn’t wait to tell Y/N and Ned about this.

“Hey baby” I got a little scared when I feel arms hug me from behind while I was getting some books from my locker. 

“Jesus, Peter! You scared the shit out of me” I laugh but turn around to greet him.

    He kisses me. I froze at first, Peter wasn’t the type to show much of PDA, holding hands was the limit he would get, and like I said, he would still get a bit embarassed about it. I kissed him back anyway, I think that was the longest kiss Peter have gave me himself, when he pulled apart, I let out a sigh, he really left me breathless. 

“Woah, what was that for?”

“Just wanted to show you how much you mean to me”

“Is that so? Wanna show me that a little more?”

    He smiles and give me one more kiss. This one was sweet like himself, and I couldn’t help but smile anyway.

“So, I gotta tell you something”

“What is it?”

“Tony talked to me yesterday… He told me that” He chuckles “I should make a move on you, that you’re a pretty girl that has heart eyes for me when I’m not looking, what do you have to say about that?”  

“I-I… Huh-” I think that was the first time I feltt embarassed. 

“Do you have heart eyes for me when I’m not looking?”

“I-I… I don’t know how I look at you when you’re not looking, but… I don’t know… I m-might have… Heart eyes for you… Sometimes” I was tugging on a piece of his clothes and looking down when talking.

“I can’t believe you’re embarassed”

“Peter, can we not talk about this please? At least not here”

“Are you in love with me?”

    I looked at him. Would it be too soon for us to be tell this right now? I let out a shaky breath and a little chuckle before trying to speak again.

“I… I am, yeah… Definitely” I smile “I am… In love with you, Peter Parker”

“Good, and just so you know, I am pretty in love with you too”

“Oh, you are?”

“Pretty much…” He trails off and press me against my locker, kissing me once again.
