ok i would like to talk about this picture

Real Talk: Jackson. Appropriation VS Appreciation.

This is about Jackson Wang from Got7 wearing dread locks in a Chinese advertisement, just in case you haven’t seen all of the drama and people attacking him. (pictures below)

I’ll start off with saying, I don’t give a fuck that he wore dreadlocks. There, that saved you a lot of reading and time, so if you would like to unfollow/block me, go ahead. Agree to disagree. People want MY opinion on this, so here it is:

The way people are attacking him is all kinds of wrong. I’m ok with people explaining nicely about the history of dreads and how people can take an offense to non Black people wearing that style, that’s their opinion, even though some where being way too harsh about it but reading all the hate comments are disgusting. You would think Jackson got caught in an animal cruelty case (God forbid) or rape case (God forbid), so I’m reading twitter and instagram and saying to myself…what is happening? I’ve never seen K Hip Hop artist get THIS much heat and they wear dreads and braids on a daily basis, but when Jackson wears them in an ad, he gets so much hate and death threats.

“He’s so wrong”

“Educate him”

“He doesn’t care about Black people but he’s wearing our hair style” - Oh I’m sorry I didn’t know Jackson hated Black people..

Let me tell you something, I know people are going to hate me for my opinion, but they hate me anyway lol, so fuck it. I understand where their passion comes from, people hate that other races look up to Black people and want to dress like us, be like us, but at the end of the day they don’t want to be with us or could care less about us for real, I GET IT!. I get it, there’s a lot of people out there that don’t like us for real but wear our hair styles. I understand appropriation. I understand the history of it all. I’m proud to be Black and love my race, my culture and the passion we have.

And I also love that other races look up to our people sooo much that they want to dress like their favorite rapper, or try their style, the rappers themselves are even flattered and don’t care, they just love that they are looked up to and inspire people of all races.

Oh wait, my antil Blackness coon-ness is showing, let me stop! (sarcasm)

But personally, If people who are not Black wear braids, dreadlocks and they’re NOT doing it to mock us, profit from us, claiming it as their own, not a racist, and fucks with my people heavy and NOT doing it to degrade our race (like Jackson!), then I don’t give a damn how you wear your hair, bitch you can wear dreadlocks til yo ass 90, I do not give a damn, there’s some fuck up things going on out there in the REAL world of appropriation. Like this fashion show that was urban themed, gave them afros, braids, but there were no Black people in the show, obviously I was annoyed, because what are they doing? Profiting off of Black people and NOT giving any credit and claiming it as new/ their own. That’s the problem with appropiating. It’s stealing from one’s culture and giving no credit.

What is Jackson doing? Is he racist? is he claiming it as his own? Is he constantly doing it? Is he discrediting Black people and acting like it’s a brand new thing he’s doing?

What did Jackson do that SOOOOOOO MANY other non Black people do every day and are getting their hair braided as I type this. I’m lost as to why people are jumping down his throat and giving him threats and demanding an apology like he said “N*gger” or something?

This girl shared my inner thoughts on appropriation. (should watch this).

And also this.


^ He’s right!  What I said above, he’s NOT doing it to degrade or profit from our race. I said my thoughts before he even responded.

+ People are offended by his response saying he “is saying fck you to us, he doesn’t care about our culture, he doesn’t listen to us”, damn! what do you want him to say? Do you not see the hate comments he’s getting?, telling him to die, saying racial slurs, you guys want to play victim in every little thing so badly, there is NOTHING wrong with his responses, they are haters. He could’ve said worse.

+And “you are on the wrong page” he’s right! If you don’t like him and want to send him hate, then you ARE ON THE WRONG PAGE. If you have a problem with him, then don’t be on his page. don’t even click on it.

^HE APPRECIATES OUR PEOPLE!

HE’S INSPIRED BY OUR PEOPLE!

HE LOVES OUR PEOPLE!

HE LOOKS UP TO OUR PEOPLE!

The last thing on my mind is someone’s hair. I don’t know about y’all but I got bigger fish to fry in this racist world, and Jackson’s 2 minute twists are the least of the problem.

And I know they will say, “So who cares wrong is wrong, he needs to be educated”, HE IS! He knows about Black people, his role models are Black, so of course he’s going to want what they want, you guys are acting like he wore the dreads to be ignorant and racist and you’re acting like he constantly “steals” from our culture and profits from it, he doesn’t.

I’m out.

Here’s the picture:


Watch the haters come in 3, 2, 1…

anonymous asked:

So I was rewatching Miraculous (again) and I just felt like you would understand that wonderful shipper feeling you get when you see the scene of Chat Noir smiling at Marinette's family photo in Animan.

See this moment here? When Ladybug calls him, he reacts like this:

What is that face, you tomcat?

Is that guilt i see in your face?

WHY ARE YOU A GUILTY KITTY?

Is it because “the love of your life” has caught you smiling at a photo of some other girl? Or is it because you caught yourself smiling at a photo of some other girl? In the general vicinity of the love of your life and the other girl’s parents?

You never liked hospitals so you tried to stay far away from them as possible. If you did get sick you would suck it up for a few days until your illness passed. Though, as fate would have it, you ended up in the building you hated. You were taking a cab home when a car pulled out too quickly hitting your side of the cab. No major injuries but you needed surgery to repair a ligament in your leg that tore in the crash.

Your mom, however, didn’t have that kind of money or at least you though she didn’t. When she instantly had enough money, you grew curious. Your mom could never hold a job for long and the jobs she did find weren’t high paying. When you asked her, she just brushed you off telling you that this was a discussion for later. You knew too well that she wasn’t going to bring it up unless she had to.

So now, here you were sitting in your hospital room alone while your mom goes out and parties with of few of her friends. Ever since you could remember, your mom always put partying before you. She rather get drunk or high with a few of her stoner friends than ever care about your well being. You couldn’t just leave even if you wanted to. Though she was a pain in the ass, you had nowhere to go. You never met your dad and he was probably just as bad as her.

What dampened your mood, even more, was that fact that you had to keep off your leg which meant you were trapped with your mother. You sighed sadly flipping through tv channels wishing you didn’t get in that cab so you wouldn’t be in this situation. Zoning out a bit, you didn’t notice someone was knocking on your door until you saw someone pop their head it.

“Miss (Y/L/N)?” A woman said as you sat up if your hospital bed.

“Yes,” You answered quietly trying to figure out who this lady was.

“I’m Mrs. Reynolds and I work with social services. I wanted to talk to you privately, your mother has already been informed.” She said as your blood ran cold. They were going to take you away and put you in the foster care system - something you did not want to end up in. “Miss?”

“O-Oh that’s fine,” You began clearing your throat, “What do you need to talk about?”

“Your mother recently reached out to your father when you needed surgery and he would like to meet you. He’s a persistent man so he’s currently waiting outside of your room. I wanted to make sure you were ok with this before I send him in.”

You stared at the women blankly as you tried to wrap your head around what was happening. Your father after fourteen years wanted to meet you. You always wondered what he looked like but your mom never kept any pictures of him. She didn’t even tell you his name after asking her many times. But here you were about to meet the man you always thought about. Nodding quietly you prepare yourself for the worst as Mrs. Reynolds leaned out into the hall summoning him in.  

You expected a nobody, someone who either had no idea you existed or just now realized he made a mistake. But your were dead wrong, instead walked in someone you immediately recognized. It was Tony Stark, Tony freaking Stark. Your mouth dropped in shock as you stared at the man claiming to be your father.

“So (Y/N) right?” He said sticking his hands in his pockets unsure what to do next.

“Wait is this a joke? How? I mean, I know how but it’s been-”

“I know fourteen years. To be honest I didn’t know you existed until your mother randomly called me asking me for money.”

“Oh,” You quietly said trying to process everything.

“How’s the leg? I heard it wasn’t serious but surgery is surgery.”

“It’s ok,” You answered unsure how to act around Tony.

Watching him sigh, he walked closer to bed trying to think what to say next. He seemed just unsure of you as you were of him. You didn’t know why he even bothered to come, he missed most of your life already and now after one phone call, he’s here. Still, you were grateful he actually was a good person than some druggy who couldn’t get his life together.

“Look I know this is awkward,” He sighed looking at your uncomfortable posture. “But I don’t want to leave this room and not see you again.”

“Me too.”

“Well then let’s start this off right,” He spoke excitedly extending his hand out to you. “I’m Tony and your name is?”

“(Y/N),” You replied with a small smile on your face.

And that was a start to a new beginning.


Three months later you were still visiting your father often but instead of taking a cab there, he made his driver Happy take you to him. After the cab incident, he made sure you didn’t have to ride with anyone else but Happy. Life was good for the most part, your mother was the same but you could tell she didn’t like you hanging around your dad.

He was pretty clear that she wouldn’t get a dime out of him unless it was for you. Once she heard that, she started taking her anger out on you. Your mom still had full custody and every night she would threaten to stop you from seeing your father. You had to beg her just to go see him even if it was an hour or two, just to get out of the house and away from her.

You wanted to tell your dad what your mom was like but you knew he didn’t want to fully adopt you. He was an Avenger and billionaire, he didn’t want some kid ruining his style. So you kept your mouth shut and enjoyed the time you had with him. That, of course, didn’t make this easier on you at all.

“W-Where are you going?!” Your mother slurred as her friends started to snort random drugs. “You know I don’t like you leaving when we have guests!” She was definitely high from whatever she was smoking. Your mom couldn’t function like an actual person when she was like this and that scared you.

“D-Dad’s,” You whispered as her face turned to rage. “I-I’m sorry I-I’ll go back to my room.” You ran quickly as your mother continued to scream from behind you. Slamming the door, you quickly locked it as she banged loudly against it.

Sending your father a text that you couldn’t make it because of homework, you slid down to the floor trying to calm your breathing. Eventually, the banging stopped but you were too afraid to move from your spot.  


Tony sighed reading the text you just send as he ate a handful of blueberries. He had a bad feeling that something else was happening back at your place. He knew your mother and she wasn’t as stable as she thought she was. Though he couldn’t just take you away from her, she still had full custody. This was something that he was going change.

He called a lawyer down beforehand to try to get custody and today he was going to ask you if you were ok with him proceeding with it. Tony was going to try and ask your mother first before trying to take this to court. He was even ready to offer her some form of money just to get you away from her.

You never mentioned how horrible your mother was to him but he had a feeling when you kept showing up with a few bruises every now and then. So when you said you couldn’t make it, he knew something was definitely wrong. Without even thinking, he was out the door with his lawyer ready to finally get you away from that hellhole.

Even after three months, he never actually saw where you lived. Happy always picked you up a corner farther away from your house. Your apartment was definitely not what he expected it to look like when he pulled out front. Some windows were boarded over while some were just broken. The roof looked old along with the cracked brick covering the apartment complex. Walking into the building was whole other story.

The smell was awful and you could hear bricking a few doors down. The wallpaper was peeling and the ceiling was littered with water stains. Tony knew more than ever, that he needed to get you out of here. When he arrived at your door, he knocked only for the door to slightly open. Pushing the door open and walking into the apartment, he called out to your mom.

When he got no answer, Tony walked further into the room, only to find your mom and her friends passed out surrounded by empty beer bottles and drugs. Without even glancing at his lawyer, Tony watched as his friend pulled out his cell phone to contact the police. Now all was left to do was find you and get you out of here. Stepping over a few bottles, he made his way over to the hall where he heard a few sobs coming from behind a door. Realizing that was you, he tried to open it only to find that it was locked.

“Leave me alone,” You whimpered. 

“(Y/N), it’s me. Open the door,” He said hoping nothing happened to you.

Tony heard shuffling behind the door before he heard the lock quickly turning. Then the door flew open as you jump straight into his arms. You started crying harder finally letting out all the emotions you bottled up. Wrapping his arms tightly around you, he made sure you felt safe.

“Shhh, I got you, I got you.”

Once your breathing calmed down, you wiped your tears away before hugging your dad once more. “M-My mom,” You hiccuped as tears started to form again.

“Don’t worry, I got her taken care of. Let’s go back to my place ok?” He said as you nodded following his lead.

Once the two of you were back at the tower you were still shaken up but you managed to calm yourself enough to explain what happened to your father. He knew you didn’t want to cause any trouble but you were clearly not in a good environment.

“You’re not going back there,” Tony said feeling the anger boil in him. “I won’t let you, that women will not be coming near you again.”

“But she still has full-”

“Not for long. I have my best lawyers working on it, she won’t come near you again. And after than stunt she pulled today she won’t have a case.”

“Really?” You asked as he nodded. You smiled widely as you jumped up from your spot and hugged him tightly. “Thank you, dad. I glad I tore a ligament that day.”

“Me too kid, me too.”

At the end of the day, you knew your father was there for you and would project you no matter what. After fourteen years with your mother, you finally felt safe and found a place where you could call home.

Expecting?
[Christian. When were you ready to expect?]

“Which one am I supposed to buy?” Christian grumbled into his phone in English, taking salvation in hoping that the old ahjussi working couldn’t understand him. There was nothing more embarrassing than standing in a convenient store in the middle of the night looking at the various pregnancy test.

“I don’t fucking know Christian” you groaned pacing back and forth in your living room. “I haven’t done this before-just get all of them.”

“All? There’s like thirty different brands. Have you lost your mind?”

“Yes Christian. Yes I have because SOMEBODY may have gotten me pregnant.”

“Chill. I got this” he sighed looking at the shelves “…Hmmm this should be fine right?” He shrugged, grabbing the more inexpensive of the brands and shoving it in the bottom of his basket. There was no way in hell he was going to leave this convenient store with only a pregnancy test in his basket. He grabbed chips, cookies, and drinks. Anything that’ll prolong the clerk from getting to the pregnancy test. “Babe, you want anythin?”

“Yes I want to not be pregnant”

DATING!HWANG MINHYUN

So dating the infamous Emperor Hwang would include:

  • is literally like the guys from k-dramas we all cry over
  • is actually a prince (?)
  • always shows up with your favorite flowers to pick you up from work or classes 
  • and probably has a list of your favorite things noted down you don’t know about
  • will probably keep the pet-names for when you two are together
  • but sometimes he would call you “sweetheart” or “darling” by mistake in public
  • would sing you to sleep and probably make cute little songs about you 
  • he is really smart so you two would have all kind of discussion about absolutely anything and there won’t be a dull moment when you’re together
  • so well-mannered and protective 
  • like always holds the door and your bag whenever you two are out 
  • lends you his jacket if you’re cold or if he thinks your dress is too short 
  • even so, I don’t think he likes showing too much PDA, like maybe holds your hand, but no kisses or whatsoever cause he is more of a conservative person
  • would turn into a cuddle monster once you two are alone and he would be literally glued to you
  • loves playing with your hair cause he thinks it smells so good 
  • would always ask you to put your head in his lap so he can play with it plus he also gets to look at your face so it’s a win for him 
  • always sending good night and good morning texts with cute little heart emoticons in them like 
  • “good morning, sweetheart. i hope your day will be as beautiful as you  ♡ ♡ “
  • and you would squeal cause it’s so cringey, but so adorable at the same time 
  • would always make time to call you in between schedules and you would hear the Nu’Est members complaining in the background 
  • cause he is too lovey-dovey and they think it’s gross, but are secretly loving the two of you together
  • probably spams you with pictures of himself when he is bored and then gets sad if you don’t send any back
  • “but minhyun i look like shit and i’m sick”
  • “ha… nonsense, Y/N. you always look good, now send me a picture of your pretty smile”
  • “no”
  • “ok no more hugs for you then, goodbye”
  • so you end up sending him a bunch of pictures and he will say you look gorgeous even if you look like a beggar
  • would probably annoy you to clean your room if you’re more of a messy person of just clean it for you
  • “ugh, what would you do without me, honey?” 
  • “good thing I have you”
  • “you’ll always have me” 
  • I feel like he is someone who would like talking about the future of your relationship 
  • and just like plan ahead your holidays, his days off and just basically your life 
  • he would see a cute kid with his parents while you two are are out and you’d catch him look at him and smiling 
  • and you’d go “ours is gonna be even cuter, minhyunnie” 
  • and he’d blush and be all flustered like “what? hahaha, yes i’m sure” but i think he secretly has the babies’ names chosen already 
  • he likes it when you cook for him and will try to help you or just assist you in the kitchen 
  • but you need your own space so you’d tell him to go away and he’d get all pouty 
  • “ugh fine, you can stay here” 
  • and then he’d be the happiest boyfriend ever and give you a backhug while you’re cutting vegetables and kiss your cheeks multiple times 
  • *SCROLL BACK UP IF YOU ARE UNDERAGE*
  • i believe he is really vanilla in bed
  • probably has a bit of experience, but I don’t think he would be intro trying weird stuff; maybe just some light spanking and hair pulling if you would ask
  • in my opinion he has medium stamina, not too much and not too little, just enough to satisfy both of your needs 
  • is more of a switch and doesn’t mind it whether he is bottom or top 
  • would be a gentleman even in bed
  • very loving and sweet
  • likes holding you close to him and kiss you everywhere, but mostly of your lips 
  • would worship your body and always tell you how beautiful you look 
  • not very vocal, but you would hear him moan a lot
  • he would have his eyes closed and moan sweetly as you go down on him
  • but I think he would be too shy to ask for a blowjob so you’d have to take charge and either do it yourself or ask him if he wants one
  • and he’d be like “umm.. if you want. i don’t mind” 
  • is soooo smooth and sensual when he goes down on you
  • kisses you everywhere with so much passion and takes a long time eating you out just to make sure you’re satisfied
  • I don’t think he has any particular kinks 
  • but if you told him you really really really wanted to try something he would probably agree after thinking a bit about it 
  • however, i feel like he wouldn’t accept if it was something involving rough bdsm, choking and other kinks among the type of those 
  • he would be scared for your safety more than anything 
  • but he loves you a lot and doesn’t want you to be sad cause he said no so he’ll probably suggest something a bit lighter
New Order

In The Last Jedi, Rey teams up with Luke Skywalker – but he’s not the man we remember. And that’s not the only shock. Total Film talks to the key players about the Star Wars movie that changes everything. 

Total Film Magazine

“Luke Skywalker has vanished,” announced the opening crawl to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And vanished he remained, for pretty much the entire running time of the seventh instalment in the space saga. 

Sure, his presence hung heavily over that film, the first Star Wars movie in a decade, and the first to follow on from the events of 1983’s Return Of The Jedi. Luke ended that particular film a pretty well-balanced Jedi Knight, having helped destroy the evil Empire while resolving some of his daddy issues with Darth Vader. He was last spotted at a victory celebration on Endor, watched over by the Force ghosts of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and Vader/Anakin. What could go wrong?

Cut to 30 years later and the events of The Force Awakens, and Luke is nowhere to be seen – save for a brief flashback – until the final moment when he’s handed his trusty lightsaber by Rey (Daisy Ridley), a young scavenger from the desert planet Jakku who has recently discovered Force sensitivities of her own. The long hair and grey beard can’t disguise the tormented scowl of the galaxy’s original golden boy. 

This is not the Luke we remember. As Mark Hamill himself puts it to TF, “It’s shocking to hear Luke say, ‘I know only one truth: it’s time for the Jedi to end’ – the last time we saw him, he was the most optimistic character. He was sort of at the peak of his powers, and you would imagine that he’d then become a Jedi master and train other people and so forth. What has happened to him that has so traumatised him into where he is now?” 

That is the question that drives The Last Jedi, aka Episode VIII. In 2015, J.J. Abrams’ The Force Awakens was a critical and commercial smash, putting Star Wars back on top (after the plastic prequels squandered fan goodwill), scoring more than $2bn at the global box office and an overwhelmingly positive response. 

Last year’s standalone ‘Story’ Rogue One was also a hit to the tune of $1bn, proving that the world was ready for adventures outside the core episodic structure. But now we’re back to the narrative throughline of Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn, Poe… and of course, Leia and Luke. (The journey of the former, who we’ve seen go from orphan to princess to spy to senator to general of the Resistance during the franchise, is apparently unaltered in The Last Jedi, despite Carrie Fisher’s death meaning this will be her last Star Wars movie.) 

“Watching the film, there’s going to be a very emotional reaction to
what she does in this movie,” says TLJ director Rian Johnson. The indie auteur behind Brick, The Brothers Bloom and Looper, he’s something of a Padawan when it comes to blockbuster filmmaking on this scale. 

Johnson’s the only person besides George Lucas to have a solo writer-director credit on a Star Wars movie, and it seems he used that autonomy to make some pretty bold choices, even in a series celebrated for its twists.

Teacher!Tom


- ok so Tom has been working as a math teacher for about three/four years and he is the younger teacher in school;

- Until one day when the old French teacher retires and you come as the new teacher;

- I bet Tom would embarrass himself in front of you when you first meet;

- Tom falls for you almost immediately;

- Ok but one day Tom is explaining something to his class, the door is open and he can see people passing in front of the classroom but he doesn’t give much importance;

- Then you step by there and he stops speaking to stare at you talking to a few students;

- All his students notice immediately that he’s crushing you and they make fun of him;

- Spending the rest of the hour talking about how much he likes you;

- Little girls would be 😍 and boys 🤮 because Tom is super cheesy;

- Oh my God, little girls would ship you so much. I can picture them coming to you and ask you if you find Mr. Holland cute and they would giggle all the time;

- You and Tom would share some ‘coffee date’ at school’s cafeteria and have some little talks;

- Also doing some trips together with your classes;

- Tom coming to school two hours before his shift just to see you;

- You and Tom would be the loveliest teachers of the school and everyone thinks you should be a great couple;

- One day, while he’s drinking coffee he hears science teacher saying to the geography teacher that football trainer! Harrison wants to ask you out so he run to you and asks you to go out that same night;

- Obviously Harrison is not interested in you, it was just an excuse to encourage Tom;

- After that night you two start dating;

- I imagine Tom grabbing you by the hand and lead you to the janitor closet or some empty labs just to make out a little;

- Make out leading to sex;

- Tom loving how elegant you are and always asking you to keep you high heels on when he fucks you in the library;

- I’m hyperventilating;

- Every time Tom hears you speaking French he would be so turned on;

- Every single mom would be so jealous of you;

- Every single dad would be so jealous of Tom;

- Your relationship is an OTP to everyone in the school just like Jay Z and Beyoncé and Ryan Reynold and Blake Lively;

- Tom sometime looks at his students and start thinking about the kids he’ll have with you;

- Because Tom is 100% sure you are the right one and he can’t wait to build a future with you;

  • you liked how pretty they were, how there was a meaning behind each flower, their scent
  • and throughout the years, you learned how flowers can make someone’s day
  • as the years went by, it just made more and more sense for you to become a florist
  • it was your dream
  • but your family was not always supportive of your dream
  • they thought you had more potential than to become something more than just a florist
  • but they loved you so they let you go through with it
  • the dream survived
  • you had to deal with a lot of rude adults
  • you know how adults loooveeee asking what you want to be when you grow up?
  • well when you were younger, they’d just laugh and shake it off, thinking it was just a phase
  • in your teenage years however, they’d say things like “can’t you do something better with your life?” or “why would you want to be a florist?” or “that’s ridiculous”
  • you never let anyone get in the way of you and your dream though
  • because here you were, working at a nice flower shop, making a good amount of money, for your third year working there
  • the shop was a family business and you had the honor of becoming apart of it
  • the shop was started by an elderly couple who has now retired and passed down the shop to their children
  • the now store owners were a middle aged couple who loved you like you were their own child
  • you loved working there
  • they made working a fun environment and you loved your job even more because of them
  • while working there, the store owners would always talk about his son to you
  • they’d talk about how handsome and smart he was
  • if you didn’t know any better, they were trying to set you up with him
  • because they were always feeding you this positive talk about him
  • one day he comes by and you meet him for the first time
  • like wow they really weren’t joking when they said he was handsome
  • like wowie his smile, his dimples, his biceps, his face, just him in general
  • if he were around you any longer, you’d fall in love
  • after he left you found yourself wishing that you could see him more
  • luckily for you he decided to work at his parent’s flower shop
  • it was such a surprise for you
  • a nice one though
  • it was such a gloomy day, the sun was nowhere to be seen and the skies were grey
  • you were hard at work and heard a voice say, “my son, jaehyun finished college and is working here now,” you look over to find the source of the voice and find yourself looking at a pair of father and son. but as soon as you see jaehyun smiling, it immediately brightened up your day
  • like what grey skies?? i can only see sunshine from here
  • anyways, his dad leaves you two to be, so it was just the two of you
  • his mom was off of work today and so were all the other workers
  • you tried to make small talk
  • “…so you finished college?” you asked
  • “yep,” he said, popping the ‘p’
  • “that’s cool. what was your major?”
  • he was a business major because he wanted to own and expand the flower shop and promote it as well
  • the small talk was really awkward
  • you really tried your best to not make it awkward
  • you’re sure he tried too, but you figure you two are just an awkward pair
  • the next day instead of talking about college, you talk about flowers
  • you figure it would be appropriate since you guys were in a flower shop
  • “what’s your favorite flower?” you asked. “i love azaleas” 
  • and you assumed that he would know stuff about flowers because his whole family does
  • but you realize he doesn’t when he says “uhhhh i like the ones with thorns”
  • and you’re like “WHAT DO YOU MEAN THE ONES WITH THORNS”
  • and suddenly all the awkwardness has faded away
  • jaehyun stammers and says he doesn’t know much about flowers
  • you let out a dramatic gasp because isn’t it strange that the son in a family of florists, really knows nothing about flowers??? and even the fact that he wants to run the shop one day??
  • you’re just in shock and jaehyun has no idea what to say or do
  • like the florist you are, you feel obligated to teach him
  • “do you want me to teach you?”
  • jaehyun who is flustered with the question stammers out a “sure?”
  • so now every day when the shop was near closing time and you both didn’t have any work to do, you two would sit down together and talk… about flowers
  • you’d show pictures of some flowers and tell him the name and its meaning
  • he was overly fascinated by it? you’d say “this is a sunflower and it means adoration and loyalty.” and he’d be like “wOWWWW?!!! ADORATION AND LOYALTY?? Crazyyyyy”
  • and you’re just like “um ok”
  • i know i say ‘like’ a lot im sorry
  • and this went on for another few weeks
  • “this is a carnation and it m-”
  • “WOW A CARNATION? NEVER WOULD HAVE THOUGHT”
  • you thought that he was acting strange but you kinda liked it and to be honest it was cute
  • because if it was any other guy he would be bored out of his mind
  • so you were glad he showed some interest? even if it was very exaggerated? 
  • you look forward to your ‘teaching’ sessions because of his cute reactions
  • also because he was a cute boy himself
  • and because he was such a nice person to be around
  • ok now one day you’re with him and he asks you about this flower
  • it was a purple iris
  • and if you’re being completely honest, you don’t really remember the symbolism behind it
  • i mean there’s a lot of flowers and it’s hard to remember them all!!! you just momentarily forgot
  • you don’t know where you got this idea but you had the idea of just making up a meaning because he wouldn’t know right???
  • “it means royalty” you say, knowing that it isn’t
  • and here is your mistake
  • because jaehyun opens his mouth to say, “actually it means wisdom and hope”
  • and you turn to him like ???, looking for an explanation to how he knew that
  • he does that thing that guys do when they feel awkward or shy by putting his hand behind his neck
  • “i have a confession to make,” he says
  • confused you is still confused
  • “i lied about not knowing about flowers… I know just as much as you, probably more since I knew the meaning of an Iris and you didn’t”
  • “wHY”D YOU LIE” was all you could say
  • “when you asked me what my favorite flower was I was going to say rose but for some reason I forgot what a rose was called because I was very nervous. then you asked me what i meant by that and I didn’t want to say that I momentarily forgot what a rose was because that would make me seem pathetic so i made up the excuse that i didn’t have any knowledge about flowers, even though I do. and then you asked me if you wanted me to teach you and i said yes because again, i was nervous and if i said no it would be rude, right???” jaehyun rambled
  • “…why were you nervous?” you asked
  • “Because I was talking to a very attractive person who I maybe liked at the time, but for sure like now”
  • “you like me??” you say in shock BECAUSE THE PERSON WHO YOU LIKED, LIKES YOU BACK
  • he nods and you can feel your heart swell with joy
  • “i like you too” you say, as jaehyun’s face lights up, his dimple more prominent than ever
  • “then be mine?” he boldly says
  • aND THEN YOU WERE HIS
  • ok but dating florist! jaehyun would be lit bro
  • you would receive a lot of flowers
  • while you two were working, sometimes he’d just go up to your station and give you a bouquet of flowers
  • “i made this for you”
  • it would be so sweet
  • and if it was your birthday or some other special occasion, he would get you all of your favorite flowers
  • because his favorite person deserves the best
  • ok and if you two were ever alone together in the shop.. (you would not do anything dirty, don’t think like that) you would probably turn on some music and dance or sing really loudly to it
  • and you love hearing him sing because his voice is so soothing and it’s your favorite thing in the world
  • when he found out that you love to hear him sing, he would always sing for you, especially when you were feeling low
  • you already know jaehyun likes to cuddle
  • his cuddles are so warm and comforting
  • jaehyun would be such an affectionate boyfriend
  • he’s the sweetest, loves you v much
  • you love him v much too
  • a v cute couple in love

- Disintegration, 2nd May 1989 -

And here we are. The masterpiece, The Cure’s opera magna, Disintegration. It’s quite a weird name for an album, if you think about it. I consider it a jump to another level, leaving behind Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me like a few years before they had left behind Pornography. Robert actually said that they did KMKMKM to reach a level that would have allowed them “to be listened to”, even with an album like DIsintegration. Because, let’s say it, this is not an easy listening; out of 12 songs, maybe two could make it to a radio station. But its beauty is that once you fully understand it, once it gets inside your heart, you’ll never be the same person again.
All the themes are very intimate; Robert proposed his ideas to the others already determined to make the album, with or without them… he really wanted to pour everything out, and this need shows a lot, seen how honest and passionate are the songs. He was going through a deep crysis, and it showed also later, during the Prayer Tour (listen to Faith from those concerts, the extra lyrics and his general attitude will leave you without words.).
A thing I absolutely love in all the songs is Robert’s  voice, because it shows how intensely he felt every word. In some songs it sounds so fragile, in others it explodes in frustration… in the previous albums he often played with it, but here it’s just the listener and the lyrics, with no tricks. Every song speaks to my soul in a language I never thought I could understand, and that makes me feel safe, in some ways. He just sounds so honest about what he’s singing about that the lyrics become even more transparent and true, almost in a scary way, Yep, it scares me to feel so naked, face to face with my inner self, but I think it’s also a positive thing, especially when you’re confused about what you feel.

The chords are surrounded by majestic synths, every note seems to resonate in space, cristalline and pure. The most evident example of this feeling is Plainsong, the opening track. The windchimes before the song are pure genius, they give me goosebumps every time, filling the listener with anticipation. Despite the very few lyrics, this song is poetry… Simon’s bass is almost singing here. It’s this song that builds in me the idea of an impetuous wind blowing through all the album, not only for the lyrics (“and the wind is blowing like it’s the end of the world, you said”), but for the general atmosphere of the song. In some ways the whole album is like a thunderstorm, that builds up with songs like Prayers For Rain, Fascination Street, and the astonishing title track, and fades away with Homesick and Untitled. It’s the final thunderstorm, another feature that contributes to make Disintegration an emotional masterpiece. 
I could write about this album for hours, I’m not joking. The famous South Park line “Disintegration is the best album ever!” couldn’t be more true, and still, there’s so much more than that. The only reason why it could’ve been defined as a “commercial suicide” is because it was being released after Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me, a totally different album. But this doesn’t mean Disintegration doesn’t have its big hits. Lovesong, that despite being the perfect lovesong fits perfecty in the general atmosphere of the album, and Pictures Of You, that as you might have noticed at this point, is (and will be) my favourite song EVER. For me it’s the enbodiment of three feelings at once: freedom, sadness, and happiness. (And also snow, a lot of snow!). 
Ok, this is getting way too long, I knew it… we’re all aware of huge singles like Lullaby and Lovesong. But I would love to just talk about the title track, Disintegration, it’s so powerful it really hurts. Robert pours everything out in this song, it’s like the ultimate rant before the disintegration of everything. All the album leaves you like everything disintegrated while listening to it… Untitled it’s a perfect frame for the sense of uncompleteness that fills you at the end of the story. Argh, this is getting so frustrating, I could fill PAGES about every single song on this album and I know I can’t…
Anyway. I must put this clear: this is definitely  NOT an easy listening. The first time I heard The Same Deep Water As You I stopped listening after the third minute, I found it almost boring. After the fourth listening, that song taught me what a good 9-minutes-song is. First listen to Lullaby, Lovesong, Pictures Of You, and I can assure you that when you’re ready to listen to it from start to finish you’ll know it deep down in your bones. At least, for me it’s been like that… I was completely lost and confused, and this album made me understand.

(If you want to open a discussion over it, feel free to send an ask ;))

anonymous asked:

Honest opinion? Do you think dan and Phil will be those cliche married people who get each other engraved rings and have sappy vows when they get married? Do you think they're already married lowkey? And they don't wear rings or anything? Or do you think they won't get married at all? Pretty sure you've answered something like this already but imma ask anyway. You're so lovely btw so glad to see you feeling Up again 😊

yessss i’ve answered this already hahah and i said that it’s hard to tell but i could see them very much not caring about the institution of marriage and just sort of viewing themselves as being the peak level of connected and in-it-for-forever as two people can possibly be. it fits with their attitudes of not being labeled as anything individually, and not being labeled as anything as a unit by the public. marriage involves having a connection between two people sanctified and like ‘approved of’ by the state and i guess the church and i could see them being like, we don’t want to turn this insanely beautiful and precious and vast thing that we share into an object that needs to be recognized or validated in this way. i also don’t rly know if they’d be comfortable w like a bunch of friends and family just making their love the object of celebration/spectacle for a day or whatever. 

butttttt all of that being said i mean phil has been on a spree of liking marriage things this year and theyre also both probably sappy as fuck about their feelings and their storybook romance and the nostalgia of it all and phil has that more traditional upbringing and whatnot so i could also see them having an internalized and hard-to-shake attachment to the feeling of being official that way, of calling each other husband, and actually being husbands in a legal sense. if they did end up going that route, i don’t think they’d do anything too sappy bc they’d be embarrassed and not even know how to act that way in front of people and they’d likely find it cringe-y. i think something like vows or whatever… ok honestly i fucking cant even picture them writing or reading vows about each other but idk. i’m not supposed to be able to picture it either right? they give their audience a very controlled depiction of themselves and their dynamic and we’re not meant to be able to draw anything very real from it. so it’s honestly impossible to say with what kind of frequency they have their moments of sappiness and melodrama when it comes to the way they talk to and about each other bc why would we be privy to that info at all??? so i have no basis on which to guess how they’d construct vows if they ever do that or how over the top vs minimalist their rings would be,, it’s just hard to tell. 

so i guess overall i more lean towards them not caring about being married at all, but i can see little hints of interest here and there in the idea. if they did get married i have no idea what kind of scale it would be on and what that would even look like. but i do think w a bit of certainty that they’re not already married hahah

omgpipercy  asked:

any romantic pipercy headcanons? I'm more on the brotp side but i need some romance alSo tysm for answering my other ask❤️

i never got notified for this?? so im so sorry it took so long omg @ tumblr why, but yesss i always am ready to talk about pipercy!!!

  • ok so they are the actual messiest couple
  • not like they fight a lot, but like they are both just genuinely messy people and combined its terrible. like they can never keep track of anything and forget appointments and always get side tracked and are always late etc etc
  • but somehow in their attempts to get where they need to go they always end up having wild stories that all their friends are left ??? at
  • this isn’t a headcanon just a fact, but they are both insanely hot? you know the kind of people you see on the street and your like, are they a model? 
  • which means when they’re out together (which is a lot) it’s like intimidating bc they’re so good looking wtf??
  • they’re really soft around each other
  • like yeah they joke around a lot, and get competitive over video games (mario cart lmao) or get in arguments over superheroes (piper was team captain america, percy was team iron man) and sometimes their general vibe comes of more best friend-ish than boyfriend/girlfriend-ish
  • but like isn’t that good?
  • neither of them would want to be with someone who wasn’t their friend first
  • anyways back to the softness
  • idk if like percy fell asleep on the couch after a horror binge (percy didn’t watch horror classics growing up like the exorcist, rosemary’s baby, the shining, etc etc. and piper horror buff™ mclean wasn’t going to let that stand) and piper covered him with a blanket and kissed his forehead
  • or when piper’s having a rough day percy will get her favorite pistachio baklava from the deli that just far enough away to be inconvenient
  • they’re always touching, grabbing each others hands to make sure the other person is there, or piper will squeeze percy’s upper arm if she’s excited, and percy will sling an arm over piper’s shoulders or around her waste and just
  • they don’t even mean for it to be like a thing. but everyone around them just vaguely feels like their intruding bc it’s so casually intimate
  • they also kiss a lot
  • not just like full on kissing, but like cheek kisses, forehead kisses, hand kisses 
  • i mean obviously they spend a lot of time at the beach, both of them love the ocean, and they surf together and lounge in the sand and maybe attempt to build a sand castle (emphasis on attempt)
  • ,,, look im not saying they stay at montauk but they do and it’s just so good and they have a camp fire and share ghost stories and laugh and roast marshmallows and kiss 
  • they both love new york. percy bc he’s percy of course he loves new york, and piper bc it grew on her and she loves the way percy’s eyes light up when talking about the city and she loves the memories she has there
  • both are really sentimental people so they just have so many pictures, like boxes full just of them and their adventures (non demigod related adventures thank god) and their friends and family and
  • they are just both so in love
  • they’re one of those couples that when you see them you get that ache in your chest bc you know you know they love each other so much and would literally do anything for the other

and ok im going to stop bc this got out of hand, but i hope you like these!!!

You know what I just realized, touka just re-dyed her hair so now she's going to look exactly like the picture that Mutsuki has 🙃 except the uniform. Fuuuck. Not that having diff hair would save her anyway tho, since Mutsuki already knows who she is and where she's at

I don’t know what you’re talking about anon, its fine, everythings ok ITS ALL OK

anonymous asked:

Hi PM! So I'm starting out in digital art and I was wondering, do you think in term of learning, it's good to trace your reference picture or does it just makes you 'lazy'? I don't know if I make sense but I feel like tracing is the easy way and won't help, and at the same time feel like it can really help with understanding proportions and whatnot

(cont) PS: for the tracing question, I’ve seen a lot of artist getting yelled at for even just expressing their opinion on the subject so if it’s not something you feel comfortable talking about I 100% understand it            

Hi anon ^^

Ok, good question! A bit more complicated than it seems.

at the same time feel like it can really help with understanding proportions and whatnot

Not really. Ok I’m gonna try to explain you in my amazing Frenglish why it’s not a good method, I hope it’s gonna be clear. :)

From what you are saying, tracing could be useful to understand proportions. If we start on that principle, it would mean that all the photos you are gonna trace have models with proper anatomical proportions. I mean, how could it be otherwise? It’s a picture! It’s reality! Well….Nope! It’s not exactly reality. It’s the reality of the camera. The camera itself and even the way the pic was taken can deform the human body and the proportions on the photo you choose to trace can be completely fucked up. Two examples: selfies and sport pictures.

- Selfies: When you take a selfie in front of a mirror, the hand holding the phone is closer to the lens of the camera. That’s why it looks so big. If you render the same proportions on a pic by just tracing without any knowledge of anatomy or proportions, it’s gonna look ridiculous and just give you a “small body - big hand” effect. Someone with a better understanding of anatomy would either draw the hand smaller to correct the deformation of the camera either foreshorten the arm to really enhance the play on perspective and give a cool effect like for instance in this artwork.

- Sport pics: When you take a pic of, let’s say, a baseball player. The body is so much in tension, in action, in MOTION that when you look at the pic, the body seems completely deformed. Does the body look this way in reality? No, it’s the reality of the camera lens. Don’t get me wrong, these pics are cool but if you trace them, for instance, to work on your baseball AU, the characters are gonna look ridiculous. Not stylized. Not cool. Ridiculous. Short legs, arms curved like a bow. They are not reality, they are just an impression of reality.

That’s why tracing will lead you nowhere in terms of learning. If you don’t know anything about anatomy, drawing techniques, proportions, you won’t be able to identify anatomy mistake (or perspective mistake, or whatever mistake). Tracing is mindless,you think you know what you are tracing but in fact, you aren’t.

It’s far better if you learn from the start, whether you are into CG art or not, to abstract your subject. Try to think it as bigger elements, and then study the proportions and composition of the elements. Basic elements used to draw a body, a car, a chair, whatever, include standard shapes such as boxes, cones, cylinders and spheres. Once you grasp the subject using such primitives, it isn’t that hard anymore to draw whatever you want and then add detail. A good part of learning to draw is learning to observe so you can translate what you see into two dimensional line or forms. (I did a post about deconstructing the body into shapes HERE). Tracing does absolutely nothing to help with that. Don’t get me wrong, when I was about 10-11 and that I started to learn to draw, I started to trace (with tracing paper, because…there was no CG art at the time xD) but it achieved nothing. I thought it did but I when I look at the drawings I did at the time, they are all deformed and the faces are wonky (the funniest thing is when you look at the original pics, you don’t see these deformations). In other words, Linda Evangelista, I’m sorry for all the wonky traced drawings I did of your face, where your jaw was super big and your eyes not on the same level. xD

When an artist use a reference picture they don’t just copy it exactly. They correct the deformation of the camera lens to render proper body proportion. Reference pictures are a GREAT help, I use them all the time and I will never shut up about how useful they are because it’s stupid to try to recreate a whole face, car, landscape, guitar, etc.. from memory but if you know about technique, you will correct the mistakes by yourself. The pic will just give you basic depth, proportion and curve perception to build your final work.

Also, tracing won’t train your hand to be better at doing a clean line work either for instance.It’s better to draw again and again and again to train your hand. Your line work will be wonky at first, then cleaner and cleaner.

However, there’s nothing wrong with tracing your own stuff if you are working on a complex picture. Some artists sketch all their characters on a different piece of paper and use a light table to put them all in the same pic (a lot of mangaka do this). They also use this method to do a clean line work (they sketch the character, use a light table and trace their sketch with ink). As you were asking about CG art, it’s different, of course. But there’s nothing wrong with doing all your characters on different layers, even different documents and then grouping them all in one pics. Whatever works. I do it when it’s a complex pic like  this one.

I’ve seen a lot of artist getting yelled at for even just expressing their opinion on the subject so if it’s not something you feel comfortable talking about I 100% understand it   

As if I cared.

If it were a good method, I would tell you, it’s a good method. I will never shut up about the virtues of referencing in spite of what a part of Tumblr thinks, so, you know, as I said, I don’t care.

Voilà! I hope it helped :) Good luck on learning about CG art. You’ll get there like I got there. Slowly but surely.

A Bitch

AJ Styles/OC. A little bit of physical altercation before the smut. For Anon: AJ keeps chasing after a girl who treats him like dirt and you finally had enough of seeing him like that so you have a go at him telling him to stop chasing people who don’t and won’t ever treat him right. He’s slightly taken aback but gets turned on by your aggression.

Some fun facts about my little smol bean Lafayette

• As a child he would pretend to fight a giant, mythical beast
• became one of the richest aristocrats in France when he was 13
• was a ginger!!!! and had a receding hairline that made him look super old
• danced with Marie Antoinette at a ball
• but he danced so badly she laughed at him and he was humiliated in front of the whole court
• got super seasick
• youngest general in the Continental Army!!
• was shot in the leg during his first battle in America (poor bby) but he reFUSED to get medical treatment until all his troops were back at camp safely
• was so freaking in love with America that he basically wrote his own constitution for France based on America’s
• G. Wash never had kids and Lafayette never really knew his father so the two of them became basically father and son ! ! ! and they napped together under a tree
• was shoved into prison during the French Revolution and actually escaped ? It was so crazy he fought the guards and then escaped on horseback but he was captured the next day and thrown back into prison
• ok so now let’s talk about him and freaking Adrienne
• they had an arranged marriage but it was chill bc they acted like middle schoolers and they were super in love
• when Lafayette was in prison Adriemne couldn’t stand to be away from him so she freaking j o i n e d him IN PRISON until he was released
• when she died he blocked off her part of their house and would meditate every morning while holding her picture
• ok so now I’m gonna get pissed
• bc
• when G Wash died later on
• Lafayette was in France right
• and no one bothered to tell Lafayette that G Wash had DIED
• Lafayette wasn’t even INVITED TO THE FUNERAL
• I’M SO HEATED
• but like later when Lafayette died
• Andrew Jackson (bless his heart) ordered Lafayette to have the same honors and ceremonies G Wash had been given at his funeral
• and Lafayette loved America so freaking much that he had American soil brought to France so he could be buried in it
• no I’m not crying over this smol bean

and after they get out of the stage, engaged, they go to this tiny room, but tony is like "i think i need to sit down" because it all catches up with him, and his face goes white, he's like 'oh my god' and pep puts his head between his knees and kneels in front of him, kisses the top of his head and says "shhh it's okay, we're alone now and i love you"

and both of them are still feeling a bit hazy because they can’t believe it actually happened, after all of these years and what they have lived together they’re gonna get married and honestly it’s not gonna change anything about how they live their life because they know each other so well, and they hold hands and pep teases him because when they had talked about engagement (pls, they did at some point ok) they didn’t quite picture it like this and he jokes that now they’re gonna have to invite half of the world and it’s gonna look like a royal wedding with all those guests, and pepper sits next to tony and whispers that thankfully the new-member announcement was quickly forgotten and didn’t have to make anything up, and tony’s like “i told you it would buy us time” when suddenly happy bursts through the door and is like “thE PRESS HAS GONE NUTS” and they’re like “we thought you had left with peter”, and happy says “are you kidding me? I carry that ring for ten years and you expect me to miss the actual proposal?!” and they all laugh and pepperony marries and lives happily ever after with 2 kids and no infinity war with that purple guy happens. the end.
