“You’re late.” was the first thing you heard as soon as you answered the phone.

“Don’t need to remind me.” your eyes practically rolled to the back of your head in annoyance at your best friend, “Natasha, please, please, cover for me. I’m ten minutes away from the office.”

“Depends. What’s in for me?”

“A big hug from me.” you answered again, “Is Mr. Stark there yet?”

“No, but he hardly is here. Why are you late anyway?”

“I spilled coffee on my blouse.”

“That doesn’t really surprise me.” she laughed.

“I swear it was an accident, I just tripped.” you defended, “Anyway, I’ll be there shortly, in about five minutes.”

As soon as she agreed, you hung up and drove the rest of the way to your workplace. Soon enough, you found yourself parking in your designated spot and entering the Stark Magazine Headquarters. Inside the building was hectic, as usual, as everyone tried to complete their own tasks in time. Grabbing some documents from one of the assistants, you walked decidedly to your shared office, where Natasha was seated at her desk. You closed the glass door behind you and greeted her shortly, before going over to your own computer and starting it.

“Give me an update, Romanoff.”

“The Lakers basketball player is here for the interview, for the Sports department.”

“Great. We should send Pietro to interview him, a photographer and a couple of writers to get the article ready.”

“Already did.”

“Genius. And please, tell Pietro to do the interview objectively. Last time, he almost blew up the whole thing by arguing about what team was better.”

She chuckled lowly, “I’ll make sure to tell him.”

Everyone else *rolls eyes* 

Benjamin Tallmage/ Aramis: *fights back a laugh* Oh dear God…. what have you done… *looks at Caleb* 

General Washington/Athos: I don’t have time for your petty complaints and shenanigans  (Athos)

Caleb Brewster/ Porthos: You’re kiddin right? I just said it needs to lay off the oats. It’s getting kinda fat. Just how is that insulting? I could have called it an ugly excuse for a cow. (Porthos) 

avecchaleur << tell me this doesn’t remind you of Dumas/ the musketeers a little bit. 


I am the Dragon and you call me insane? You are privy to a great becoming, but you recognize nothing. To me, you are a slug in the sun. You are an ant in the afterbirth. It is your nature to do one thing correctly. Before me, you rightly tremble. But, fear is not what you owe me. You owe me awe.

“Is everything alright?” he was concerned “I’m sorry for calling you in the show, I know it’s out of your comfort zone but I thought it would be… I don’t know, fun? and…"he trailed off.

"Hey, everything’s fine, silly. I’m just, um…radio is tiring” you stared at the ground of the parking lot. Dan remained silence. It felt like an eternity.

Say something.

Lily Allen: €˜"The word feminism shouldn'€™t even be a thing anymore€"

Lily Allen is one of the go-to names in pop for outspoken pro-female opinion – but don’t call her a feminist any time soon.

Because feminism isn’t a word she believes should exist in the year 2014.

“Feminism. I hate that word because it shouldn’t even be a thing anymore,” she told Shortlist in an interview to run alongside her guest edited ‘How To Be A Man’ issue of the magazine.

“We’re all equal, everyone is equal. Why is there even a conversation about feminism? What’s the man version of feminism? There isn’t even a word for it. Menanism. Male-ism. It doesn’t exist.”

“Fast-forward 100 years: ‘Yes, I do believe men should be treated equally,’” she added.

Her comments were made in reference to the title track of her new record, Sheezus(yes, a play on Kanye West’s 2013 album), in which she mentions Katy Perry and Rita Ora.

“It’s not supposed to be provocative and it’s not attacking anyone, although it does namecheck a few people,” she said of the typically controversial song.

“It’s about how girls are pitted against each other, unlike men. I know you had it in the 90s with Blur versus Oasis, but it’s not the same thing. It’s like, ‘Who looks the best?’, ‘You’re getting too old to do this, you shouldn’t be doing that’. There seems to be a moral undertone when women are concerned that doesn’t happen with men, and that’s what the song is about.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Allen discussed how she believes modern women are their own worst critics.

“It’s much the same [as it used to be]. But I don’t think men are the enemy. I think women are the enemy.

“I know that when I’m sitting in a restaurant and a really beautiful woman walks in, who’s skinny, I instinctively think, ‘Oh, she’s really skinny and beautiful and I’m really fat and ugly.’ Every man I speak to always says they find that kind of woman gross, and they prefer a bit more meat on their ladies.

“So it’s more of a competitive thing. It’s weird. It’s just really unhealthy and we’re our own worst enemy. We should stop being so horrible to each other.”

She also details her nine lessons for men on ‘How to be a man’, which include “Be honourable”, “Be courageous”, “The occasional treat is nice” and “A man shouldn’t underestimate the power of opening a door for a women.”

Her guest editing stint comes after Allen was both praised and criticised by feminists for her controversial comeback track, “Hard Out Here”.

“[It] is meant to be a lighthearted satirical video that deals with objectification of women within modern pop culture … The message is clear,” she wrote in a statement, arguing against a backlash that accused the accompanying video, in which she is seen posing with scantily clad black backing dancers, of being racist.

She added that she didn’t request “specific ethnicities” for her dancers, and just hired “the best dancers” from the auditions.

“I would not only be surprised but deeply saddened if I thought anyone came away from that video feeling taken advantage of, or compromised in any way,” she wrote.

“I actually rehearsed for two weeks trying to perfect my twerk, but failed miserably. [And] if I was a little braver, I would have been wearing a bikini too, but I do not and I have chronic cellulite, which nobody wants to see.”
