CLASSICS (favorites)

The Art Of Being Extraordinary - if you haven’t read this already, wyd? The ending will destroy you - be prepared to cry. 

Letters From War - another extremely well known fic among swen. a heart-wrenching and beautifully written AU fic. even if AUs aren’t your thing, seriously, give this one a try.

Emma is a soldier on reserve in Fort Benning. Regina is the Mayor of Storybrooke. Through a pen pal program designed to ease the ache of homesick soldiers, Emma and Regina begin sending letters to one another as their relationship grows from cordial acquaintance to something neither woman would have expected - until the letters stop coming.

A Trail Of Destruction - DEFINITELY a classic imo. this is one of my favorite fanfictions of all time.

A hostage situation in City Hall leaves behind a battered, broken sheriff, and a mayor wracked with guilt. Trigger warnings for violence and gun threats and general angst. Slow-burn swan queen.

Miles To Go - AU; emma and regina meet at a party and the rest is history. this ones pretty long (80 chapters), but so worth the read! angsty & lots of ‘sexy times’ 

Everyone has their own story, this one is theirs and it paints the picture of a love story that spans over two decades, with all the ups and downs and everything else in between. SwanQueen AU
 

Of Love and Loathing - a lot of angry sex in the beginning, which eventually turns into lovey sex. another well known and well written fic - this author is one of my favorites. *reaaallyyy hot smut 

“I have been sleeping with someone,” Regina began tentatively, an acute awareness that once she said the words out loud that the madness behind her highly unorthodox situation became all the more real, “whom I absolutely loathe.” •Emma/Regina•

Meet me Halfway - one of the first swan queen fan fictions i ever read! still a classic to this day. AU

Emma Swan works hard every night as a bartender, struggling to raise her son and save up enough to own her own bar. Regina Mills is an upper class New York photographer who wouldn’t normally spare a second glance at people below her. When their paths cross, their lives adapt to each other, but how much are they willing to change?

Love Undefined - in the process of re-reading this one because of how much i love it. angsty as hell but such a beautiful story.

It’s been eight years since the last time Regina and Emma saw each other, eight years since Emma lost part of her happiness, her family, and everything fell apart. But she hasn’t forgotten those three years in New York, or any of what Regina had brought into her life. A late night phone call to Regina takes Emma back eleven years to when they met, saved each other from loneliness, and Emma started learning what it meant to live. She relives the moments that had changed her life for the better, and even the ones that had hurt.

Teacher’s Pet - KNOWN AS THE ONE TEACHER/STUDENT FANFIC THAT EVERYONE HAS READ. 

Emma Swan is starting her senior year. Her friends tell her about the Creative Writing teacher that she has on her schedule and how no one had passed her class with an A, not even her bookworm friend, Belle. What will she do? And who exactly is this ‘bitchy Evil Queen’ as they claim her to be? SwanQueen. Student/Teacher. M for language and future chapters.

Lost in Translation - i wasn’t sure about this before reading it but i LOVED it. the description pretty much sums it up.

AU. Regina is deaf. Emma is the only one who refuses to give her pity. In response, Regina is thrilled by this new challenge and the stand-offs commence, but over time she finds out there is more to the blonde woman than just a target to throw a stinging quip and pointed glare at.

Send Up a Signal - emma and regina are actresses and their fans ship them with each other. ;)

Emma Swan is catapulted into stardom, the newest lead actress on a sanitized show featuring modern fairytales. Regina Mills is a long-undermined star with a chip on her shoulder and a thousand reasons why she’s invested. Naturally, they loathe each other on sight.Their characters’ fanbases, however, have other ideas.

Reset - SO. GOOD. 95 chapters. if you’re looking for long fanfics, this is for you. 

Following the breaking of the curse everyone in Storybrooke is finding their happy ending, with one exception. Resigning herself to having lost Henry’s love and respect forever, Regina decides there is only one path available to her.

Take Me Home Tonight - AU!! lots of smut :) this is a newer one that i’ve seen around twitter and tumblr and i really enjoyed it! this one’s pretty short (14 chapters)

AU: Nineteen year old Emma Swan is a senior at the exclusive all girls boarding school, Foxhaven Academy. When her friends find out she’s a virgin they send her to the city to find a guy to take her v-card. But Emma is more interested in a sexy older woman she meets in a bar. A SwanQueen story.

The Staircase - non-consensual sex in the first chapter, so please be aware of that; its not for eveyone. this story is very dark but has a happy ending i promise!

Regina could still smell her cologne and feel the cheap pleather pressing into her back. The brunette sucked in a breath. She was still lying on the floor at the staircase’s base and she stared back up at it. Everything was different now. Changed. She felt broken by what had just happened, appalled and enraged, dirty. WARNING: NC17 for non-consensual sex. Dark. (But gets lighter.)

the trouble with emma - very very well known within the swan queen community. i’ll be honest, i never really got into the story but i can acknowledge that it is the most well-written fanfiction i have read to date. the author is truly talented. (the first in a series of fanfics)

Post ep 4x23, Emma becomes the Dark One and learns nothing is quite as it seems or as simple as black versus white. When Regina removes the curse no one in Storybrooke is prepared for the far reaching fallout which leaves none of their lives unaltered or untouched, least of all Regina’s.

SMUT 

shadow haven  - the one smut fic everyone has read.

Emma Swan is a PR agent who is sent on a holiday by her boss. Regina Mills is the owner of a private island named Shadow Haven. There is more to Regina than initially meets the eye. This story dips heavily into the BDSM subculture. Swan Queen romance / BDSM story.

the wicked stepmother - the one kinky fic everyone has read- or attempted to. i couldn’t get through the whole thing but the first few chapters,,, holy hell.

When the Evil Queen catches baby Emma along with Snow White, she decides on a new revenge. In Storybrooke, Snow White will be allowed to raise her daughter… but on her eighteenth birthday, Regina will come for her. Emma might just enjoy that.

in control  - Regina had never been in the habit of relinquishing control, but when it came to Emma Swan, she was starting to find out that giving in had its benefits. - Established Swan Queen - One Shot. Rated M for language and content.

the collar - It will carry strong mature themes as well as a Mistress/Slave relationship but it is also a lot more than that. However, as a warning this story will celebrate the shades of grey of our favourite couple as they find their way to each other and will deal with darker elements of their characters. Emma’s history differs a little from canon but will be covered by the story but there is no Henry and she is an adult in this fiction.

a little taste  - author of A Fine Line and Letters from War. 

Emma has been desperate to know what it’s like to kiss the smirk off of Regina Mills, but when she finally gets the chance, it doesn’t seem to be enough.

tempest - A storm ushers in an expected opportunity for Regina to finally rid herself of Emma Swan. She will posses the sheriff’s heart and then crush it. But what happens when nothing goes as planned? Rated M for language and Swan Queen sexytimes.

come on be nice - Regina has decided that the quickest way to get rid of Emma Swan is to scare off the commitment phobic woman with a come-on. This, as with many of Regina’s plans, does not go as, well, planned. Rated M for Swan Queen sex.

black lace - Emma and Henry find a way around the 'no visiting’ rule involving binoculars and the walkie talkie. Emma’s attention is fully on her son, she truly doesn’t intend to watch Regina at all. At least until the mayor begins undressing in front of her window..

dirty words - Regina is plagued by thoughts of a certain blonde. Deciding she is in need of cathartic release, she writes a quick narrative in hopes of cleansing her system. However, by a happy accident, the story falls into the wrong hands. What will Emma do with this new and intriguing insight into the mayor’s mind?

damn you, miss swan  Emma visits the mayor one night with a bottle of wine to cheer her up. Anger issues and smeared lippy ensues. WARNING: Includes a non-explicit passing reference to rape. This is my first story. A/N Jan 2015: Way back when I wrote this, no one knew anyone’s back stories, so I just made up stuff. Don’t be upset for canon divergence if you read it now. It wasn’t canon then.

mirror tricks The Evil Queen has made her way to Storybrooke, but she only seems to be interested in one thing: Emma. When Regina realises this, her jealousy starts to get the better of her.

my enemy’s enemy After her mother’s death, Regina finds a terrible surprise hidden among the witch’s belongings. Unfortunately, the only one able to cure her from the ailment is Emma…if she agrees. Strong language and mature themes. First stab at SwanQueen :)

ANGST

to remember her happy ending - “She doesn’t even remember her family! How am I going to explain this to her when she hates me!” She was falling apart now. The way the women in the other room had just looked at her, with such disdain. That wasn’t her wife. That was the Mayor, the Evil Queen maybe…but not her wife.

for endings are where we begin Regina Mills is your average working mom - she spends long hours at her bakery, loves her son Henry with all that she is, and can touch dead things and bring them back to life.Emma Swan is an orphan, an ex-convict, and a bail bondsperson residing in Massachusetts. She is also currently dead.This is the story of how they meet.

the loudest silence - New to Chicago Emma, a professional cellist, is shocked to find that a beautiful deaf woman is her new president of the board. As their friendship grows Emma begins to wonder, what does it look like when a world of sound and a world of silence meet somewhere in the middle? SwanQueen AU

broken 16 year Emma Swan is a preachers daughter on a tight leash, what happens when Regina Mills returns to town, dark, mysterious and dangerous? Will her father’s expectations take over or will Emma follow her heart? Is Regina legit or is Emma cute little pawn? Will Emma be able to love Regina for who she is or will her dark past ruin it ALL! SwanQueen G!P Some BDSM

bring her home Cora’s dead. Henry lives with the Charmings. Regina continues spiraling through grief and loss and hatred. Then Emma suddenly falls unconscious and Henry shows up at Regina’s door because he needs her help to bring Emma back. Reluctantly, Regina embarks on a wild swan chase through Emma’s mind, a whirlwind of ‘roads‐less‐traveled’ and ‘what‐ifs’ and ‘might‐have‐beens’, in order to bring her home.

if the blazer fits Emma decides to dress up like Regina for a Halloween party at The Rabbit Hole, a seemingly innocent decision that surprisingly leads to a relationship. The romance is openly feared by some and secretly despised by an unlikely source, who plots to end it.

a fine line Upon Regina’s banishment, the small town of Storybrooke becomes protected once again by an enchantment that prevents anyone from leaving or entering Storybrooke. Emma and Regina find themselves on the edge of the town, wishing for a way to the other side.

a pale imitation Regina is furious with Emma after she brings back Marian, but since she can’t take it out on her, Regina creates a mindless clone of Emma to hit instead. The clone doesn’t stay mindless for long though, developing an obsession with Regina. Written for summer 2014 Swan Queen Big Bang. (TW for sexual assault/rape and graphic depictions of violence)

FLUFF

one fine mess - Regina’s gut twisted with an agonizing pull and, for just a moment, she thought she might need to take up the same position as the woman crouched before her. “You’re pregnant?” she whispered grimly. Emma’s only response was to turn and retch into the toilet again. — Swan Queen, magic!pregnancy

coffee at midnight - (so good) Slow burn AU that starts with two women from different parts of the USA meeting on Twitter. Emma is an insomniac loner who is a Personal Trainer. Regina is a writer with a sleepless baby. Their lack of sleep and love for coffee soon brings them together and after that they find it hard to part. This is a fic where coffee is taking to mythical levels, despite it’s bad effect on people with insomnia and people with babies - showing that sometimes what you need and want isn’t always the thing that is wholesome and harmless. But also that denying yourself it will only lead to misery, something which Regina has to apply to other parts of her life.

all the single ladies With the library in desperate need of renovation, Storybrooke prepares for a fundraising dinner and bachelorette auction. What mischief and romance can be found as a result? SwanQueen with some RedBeauty Rating has been raised to M - now including adult content.


TEACHER+STUDENT / EMPLOYEE+BOSS

teacher’s pet - see above (classics)

take me home tonight - see above (classics)

step into my office, baby  - This is what you get for doing the nice thing, Emma thinks. You do that whole Pay It Forward bullshit - you buy a lady some coffee and you pretend like it isn’t totally motivated by how she looks in a pencil skirt - and she goes and insults your business card and turns out to be your company’s new Executive Director. Real fucking cute.From now on, she is drinking tea.or, the one where they’re in an office.

teaching miss mills  - Swan Queen Teacher AU: Emma is a gym teacher, who moves to Storybrooke Academy after becoming disenchanted with her job back in Boston. Regina Mills is the Head of English who Emma somehow seems to keep having run-ins with, despite the best of intentions. Along the way, Emma adjusts to small-town life, gets her teaching mojo back and grows closer to Regina. NOW COMPLETE

troubled teachers - COMPLETE! SwanQueen AU. Geography teacher Emma Swan starts a new life far from her troubled past and meets history teacher Regina Mills. But all is not as it seems when it comes to the composed, intelligent, and beautiful brunette. Family struggles and difficult relationships lead to a friendship and soon something more blossoms. Rated M for Ch 7, 18, 22, 24, 28, 29, 31, 35 and 38

not a virgin anymore When college student Emma Swan wakes up one morning with no memory of what happened the night before she’s very surprised she finds herself in professor Mills’s bed. 

is that so, miss swan? - College student, Emma Swan, is confronted by her favorite professor and secret heart-throb, Dr. Regina Mills. What happens when Emma is forced to reveal her secrets? We shall see. AU. Slightly OOC at times. No magic. SwanQueen. Rated M for serious language and eventual sexy times between our two favorite ladies.

butterfly effect - in her final year of college, Emma finds she has more to account for than the extra credits she needs in order to graduate. Only… she doesn’t expect it to come in the form of her newest instructor, Professor Regina Mills. Complete. AU Swan Queen

a sophisticated seduction Emma’s a college student, working as an intern at the Dazzle Magazine for a powerful woman she has never had the good fortune of meeting. But everything in her life is about to change when they finally meet. Especially when one falls so deeply in love with the other and the insecurities from a broken marriage comes to light. (Not Based on The Devil Wears Prada)

some other faves

down east decisions - Massachusetts State Police Capt. Emma Swan leaves her red-hot career to become the police chief of sleepy Storybrooke, Maine. She’s hoping for a less-complicated, less-dangerous life, a desire that is dashed on both counts. AU. No magic. Crime drama and romance. Swan Queen is endgame.

that drunken night - Emma’s wasted and accidentally calls Regina instead of her mom. And Regina isn’t as loathe to talk to the blonde as she usually pretends. Did things change between them so radically while they were in Neverland? (No copyright infringement intended.)

chasing henry - SQ. Tired of the tricks and lies of both of his mothers, Henry follows the dwarves, Red and Granny when they use Tiny’s magic beans to return themselves to their old land. Emma and Regina both chase after him, and they reluctantly travel together through the Enchanted Forest in order to find him and bring him back home safely.

so does this make us both the other woman? - Set after 3b in a peaceful Storybrooke where Regina is with Robin and Emma’s fallen into a relationship with Hook. Shame about all that subtext that’s rapidly threatening to become text.

anonymous asked:

Holy shit I love your analysis' of Jimin and Namjoon!! Would you mind doing one for Jungkook as well? I know a lot of people were confused as to why Namjoon put him in Ravenclaw over Gryffindor/Slytherin.

Hello~

It’s really weird for me that you guys actually care about and value my opinions  on this whole business so thank you so much for giving my ramblings the time of day omg

for those who are wondering about my thoughts on gryffindor!namjoon and slytherin!jimin here’s the links to those:

Namjoon as a Gryffindor || Jimin as a Slytherin


So like, I really. really. really. love the idea of Ravenclaw Jeon. (But listen… I used to be a hardcore Slytherin!Jeon person okay, so I understand your feels on this. I do.) 

 here goes nothing

Ravenclaw Jungkook confused a lot of people. And I really get it because Ravenclaw was so fucking shafted in the books. 

We had so many Gryffindors and Slytherins to relate to, and we had a fair share of badass Hufflepuffs (TONKS) to base our opinions off of. But there were only a few Ravenclaws that were given the time of day in the books, and only one of those was a major character. We had Luna, Trelawney, Lockehart, and Cho. Cho’s amazing character was wasted by JK – she was written with the personality of a dish rag and didn’t really get the spotlight she deserved. Trelawney was presented as a crazy old lady who sometimes ?? served a purpose. Lockehart was an idiot. All we really had was Luna.

But it wasn’t just the characters. Ravenclaw has a really weird reputation. Before I wrote this, I asked a bunch of my casual and hardcore HP fan friends to tell me the characteristics they associated with each house. And I got pretty much what I expected:

  • Gryffindor: Leaders, brave, courageous, brash, strong
  • Slytherin: Cunning, resourceful, calculating, perfectionists
  • Hufflepuff: Loyal, kind, hard-working, determination, cheerful
  • Ravenclaw: Smart…?? they are… smart people?? They do things…….smartly……

Like for real. Whenever I asked people what traits they associated with Ravenclaw, all anyone was ever able to tell me was that Ravenclaws were supposedly smart. And that’s got a lot to do with the fact that when the sorting hat sings off about all the houses, it lists all these great traits for the other houses, but when it comes to Ravenclaw it says this:

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.

And then the books go on to say that Ravenclaws are,

characterised by their wit, intelligence, and wisdom.

So maybe you’re like me, and I am REALLY guilty of this, but when I first read this in the books I kinda just thought these all meant the same thing. So maybe that’s where we got this idea that all Ravenclaws are good for are being smart.

But it wasn’t until I looked up the actual definition of each word that I realized these were all saying really different things:

Intelligence - the ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills.
Wit - a natural aptitude for using words and ideas in a quick and inventive way to create humor.
Wisdom - the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment; the quality of being wise.

^^^^this is just webster dictionary definitions here. The bolded words are the ones I want to focus on.

Skill. See – Ravenclaws are supposedly smart. But this doesn’t always have to mean BOOKSMART, and I think that’s where we had a lot of trouble with Jeon. No one is saying he is dumb or anything, but he’s no Namjoon.

Notable examples of this trait include Lockehart, who was pretty shitty at a lot of things, but had the street smarts enough to pass off his big whole scam for years and years, and was especially gifted in certain charms.

Then there’s Luna, who while shown to be really good at solving riddles, was also portrayed as really physically skilled. In Dumbledore’s Army, while being taught how to conjure a Patronus by Harry, Luna was the first to get it right. She was fourteen at the time, and was such a skilled witch that she was able to perform an incredibly difficult charm - that even adults had trouble with - after like…….mere minutes of teaching.

Does this sound like someone you know?? I’ll give you an example: Observe this VERY determined Hufflepuff not give up on his dreams and finally have all his hard work pay off… only for someone to come in and get it right almost instantly.

Or maybe… “Hey guys, this dance move you made up looks pretty cool – mind if I watch you do it like once and a half and then nail it instantly?”

And if you’re ever in doubt about just how skilled Jungkook is… remember that he turned down seven other agencies to join BigHit. That’s how many people were after him and recognized his talent. (This also ties in to my thoughts on the part about good judgement – Jungkook obviously saw a lot of potential in Namjoon and BigHit in general, so much so that he turned down tons of other companies to be there. He saw something a lot of other people did not… and it ended up being the best decision he ever made.)

But I think another really telling aspect of Jungkook’s Ravenclaw personality is that he isn’t always perfect at everything. He’s not always good at something right away – but that won’t stop him working really hard to get good

In Rookie King he was shown to be at the most pretty average at bowling. He wasn’t terrible, but he was about as good as you and I would be after playing a few rounds with a little luck. Well, Golden Maknae Jungkook could not stand to not be the best at something, so he mentions sometime later (13:10) that he’s hired a coach to teach him how to bowl…. and then just a few months later uploads a video of himself getting a strike like it’s no god damn big deal at all. And he looks pretty proud of himself too.

But all the major Ravenclaws were also shown time and time and time again as being a little…. scatterbrained. Luna, Lockehart, and Trelawney especially, and to an extent even Cho. And Jungkook is no exception. He’s… pretty gullible. And DEFINITELY scatterbrained.

But wit, intelligence, and wisdom are not the only three traits associated with Ravenclaw. There are a lot of other traits you may not really know about, because again – Ravenclaws were woefully under-represented in the series. There’s quite a few others listed for this house:

  • Creative
  • Individuality
  • Eccentric
  • Quirky
  • Jealousy/Envy
  • Competitive

So imma just go down the list because I’m really tired and I can’t made good word things rn

Creative

it’s no secret that Jungkook is a pretty talented artist. He’s a pretty damn good photographer too. (This will always be one of my favorite photos ever of Jimin – and Jungkook took it.) And he’s a talented lyricist as well. He’s an extremely good dancer and has a beautiful voice too – but you guys know this already.

Individuality

Take a look at how he expresses his individuality through his song covers.

Eccentric & Quirky

You guys thought the fact that Lockehart, Trelawney, and even heckin Luna were all in the same house was a coincidence? Ravenclaws are NOTORIOUS for being Extra™ . I’m not kidding! This is literally a personality trait of Ravenclaws that we overlook so often from these weirdos. And Jeon fuckin Jungkook invented the word eccentric:


you’d be here forever if i kept going so… you get the point. eccentric is jungkook’s middle name.

Jealousy/Envy

Jeonlous exists in this god forsaken fandom, and I ain’t gonna link it and open THAT can of worms, but if you’re feeling so inclined and care to enter the seventh circle of hell, feel free to look it up… but tread carefully.

Competitive

When I got the first ask about Ravenclaw Kook I had woken up at 3am and sleepily looked at my emails. I saw the ask and immediately had to jot down my ideas to keep for the next day, and all I managed to write in my sleep stupor was this

and then i promptly fell back asleep.

I was referring to this, and if you don’t feel bad for poor Jin in this situation I don’t know what to tell you. Jungkook is intensely competitive, even over small things like board games. He was so intent on winning that game that he literally assaulted someone five years his senior to sabotage them.

And then this is him trying to win a dance-off… doing the most, as usual.

And also?? He was literally banned from the gym because he was getting too buff. And look at him take out that guy in wrestling… and then demolish poor Jimin, the smallest member of BTS in arm wrestling when he could have… you know… let him win or something……

It’s a pretty well known meme within the fandom that Jungkook is competitive and always trying to outdo the others.



But when it comes down to it, Ravenclaws are still known for being smart, right? We can take all these other traits and apply them to Jeon but what about his brain?

He’s actually kinda smart. He is able to cover a song in perfect English even though he doesn’t speak the language all that well (but well enough to constantly correct others’ English and he’s good enough to tell you he’s really not all that interested in participating in English Time anyways)

And I mean…. he can outsmart the other members pretty well…………..


But I think one of the most important things to note about Jungkook being in Ravenclaw is to look at who sorted him, Namjoon: Namjoon himself gave Jungkook the nickname “Golden Maknae”. He is constantly saying that Jungkook can do anything, or watch this Jungkook can do this, or wow look at him go, or he’s so talented this and that. Is it really any surprise that Namjoon would put Jungkook in to a house known for being highly skilled when he believes no less of the kid?

Jungkook has some pretty Slytherin-like qualities – but tons of canon HP characters and the BTS members themselves have traits that are shared by all four houses. It’s just a matter of where he fits best.

I mean TL;DR, Jeon says it best himself:

The first 4 are from IndyPopCon 2015, the 26th, 27th and 28th of June 2015.  The very first time that I met and photographed these young men.  They have come a long way but I think, so have I.  If not for these young men, I would not have picked up my camera again and started down an entirely new road in life.

The first photo will always and forever be my favorite as it was the first one that Jack ever reblogged (but it is also a photo that shows the shear joy he had in showing up and seeing his friends)

I look back and see how blurry and how in need those photos were.  I still have a long way to go but the journey is what matters now.

Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do

Last is from PAX East 2016 Autograph session.

  • So, Yoongi would be a music production major and a photography minor. Both are things he’s very passionate about and both are things that would make decent careers in the future.
  • Honestly, Yoongi seems to really value education but at the same time, he understands that test scores and grades don’t define who you are or where your talents really lie. So, he’s enjoying his time and he’s trying his hardest because he’s a perfectionist but he’s not stressing if he gets a B.
  • Yoongi really is a perfectionist, though. He wants everything to be done right and he doesn’t accept anything less. And that can cause some problems for him.
  • Even though he doesn’t really care about grades, he still cares.
  • Like, he doesn’t handle failure well so if he fails a test or a professor doesn’t like his piece, it bothers him.

movie rec list from a movie nerd in no particular order

PLEASE exercise caution if you watch any of these movies, i’m sure there is a lot of triggering content so just be safe!!!

Pride (2014) - Tells the story of a group of gay people in the 80s fighting for another oppressed group’s rights. The acting is phenomenal and the cinematography is very impressive, the soundtrack didn’t stand out for me, but it was still good.
Sing Street (2016) - A boy tries to impress a girl by starting a band, but goes on a journy of self discovery learning about both himself and her. The soundtrack is fucking amazing. Costuming stands out a lot, but the acting and cinematography were, of course, amazing as well.
The Girl King (2015) - One of the only good movies to come out in 2015 imo, the Girl King tells the story of Queen Christina of Sweden and her struggles as a ruler as well as her relationship with Ebba Sparre, her lesbian lover.
Dead Poets Society (1989) - A boy starts going to a fancy prep school and makes friends with a wonderful group of boys. These boys are inspired by their teacher (Mr Keating, playing by the late great Robin Williams) to start questioning authority.
Big Eyes (2014) - The wonderful story of Margaret Keane, an artist who had all of her work and millions of dollars stolen from her for years by her husband as he took credit for her work. Honestly a beautiful film, it stands out in color and soundtrack, using both to accentuate the emotions conveyed by the scene, but the underlying themes.
Whip It (2009) - A guilty pleasure but still a relatively good movie. Whip It follows Ellen Page as she begins roller derby in the late 70s (I believe) and her struggle with growing up and high school, as well as a Hella Rad Ending. The cinematography is good, but the soundtrack could have been better. I love it overall, but it really Could Have Been Gayer.
Finding Vivian Maier (2014) - I watched this last night, and it’s officially one of my favorite documentaries like…Ever. It follows a guy who bought a bunch of photo negatives at an auction and goes on a journey to discover the life of the photographer. It’s amazing, inspiring, and I absolutely love everything about it. The soundtrack fit the overall story well, and the emotional interviews really do add to it.
Operation Avalanche (2016) - A “found footage” film about two guys faking the moon landing. That’s all I can say. It’s fucking amazing. The way that it’s filmed and acted with very little script and such a low budget allowed the creators to really be open with how they made the final product, and honestly it’s such a good and believable film. I just….Love it. It’s one of those “enough said” movies. I shouldn’t need to sell it to you.
The Neon Demon (2016) - This is one of the only horror movies that I like, and one of the reasons is that it does not have any jumpscares in it at all. It’s pure psychological horror. The colors/scenes are clearly made to be pretty as opposed to realistic, and it’s a very aesthetically pleasing movie. However, if you are triggered by anything, don’t watch this movie. It’s beautiful, but its fucked. up.
Childhood favorites:
The Goonies (1985)
The Princess Bride (1987)
The Sandlot (1993)
Matilda (1996)
School of Rock (2003)

Guys, let me talk to you about my new favorite game.

I recently found out about a free game/app called “Real Whales” and downloading it has been one of the best decisions I ever made.

“I came out of the ocean because you need to download this game.”

In the game, you go out on whale-watching tours and take pictures. That’s it. That’s literally it. You choose the tour you want to go on, and once you’re there, you swipe left or right to look for whales or dolphins to photograph. When you see one, tap once to zoom in on them, tap again to take a picture. 

There’s no music, but if you play the game with the sound on, occasionally you’ll hear the boat captain call out the location of an animal. You’ll also hear whales blowing or slapping the water. 

Or sometimes you’ll hear a colossal crash and realize you just missed a full-body breach.

Only one tour is unlocked at the start, but when you take pictures of cetaceans, you earn points that can be used to unlock the rest. The number of points you get for each shot takes several things into consideration, such as the timing of the shot and the “rarity” of the behavior. The scoring is really generous, too, so you should be able to unlock another tour after only a few outings.

Sometimes the whales are really on the move, so it can be tricky to get the perfect shot lined up before they disappear back into the water, but there’s no need to stress about running out of time. The only limiting factor to your tour is how many pictures you’ve taken; once you snap 12 shots, the tour ends. Which means you can absolutely go on a tour and spend an hour just smiling at the screen and watching whales be whales. 

Yes, that is the voice of experience speaking. I’ve gotten into the habit of going on a whale-watching tour before bed, and it really helps me settle in for the night.

At the end of the tour, you can go through all the photos you took and choose ones to save to your album, which you can then view at any time. (All of the screenshots on this post are some of my best photos.) There’s also a Gallery feature, where you can move around a model of each species you’ve photographed, read some quick facts, and even play a recording of their sounds!

Even on my Galaxy Mini, the graphics are gorgeous and the animations are super-smooth. I can’t even imagine how incredible it would be to play this game on a tablet or a phone with a bigger screen.

In short, this game is amazing. There’s no interrupting ads (just a small bar at the top which is easy enough to ignore), the graphics are awesome, and did I mention that it’s free and has whales? Because it’s free and has whales. 

So what are you waiting for? Give “Real whales” a try! I can’t imagine why you would regret it!

RFA + V reacting to MC being an amateur photographer?

Yoosung:

  • Wants to support and help!!!
  • Is a bit of a noob when it comes to the topic though.
  • But he engulfs himself in the field, looks up various YouTube videos and feels so confident and cool even though he’s still butchering names of camera objects etc.
  • It’s the thought that counts though and it’s very adorable.

Jaehee:

  • She’s honestly very impressed.
  • Photography has never been something she’s been super interested in, but hearing about it does make her realize it’s pretty fascinating.
  • The type of girlfriend that would give a photoalbum as a gift to fill with pictures of their life together.
  • Romantic™ 

Zen:

  • Clearly Zen knows quite a bit about art, including photography.
  • One of my favorite AUs is one where MC is the photographer of one of Zen’s modeling photoshoots.
  • He’d in general gladly be offering himself if they ever needed someone to take photos of, without hesitation!
  • Insists on hanging a bunch of their pictures up on the wall.

Jumin:

  • Having V as his best friend, I bet he knows a thing or two about photography. It might actually surprise MC just how much of an expert he is.
  • But the man couldn’t take a picture on his own if his life depended on it. You know how blurry his selfies are.
  • Do not hand him a camera. He will let it drop. Although he can easily buy a new one whenever.
  • “Can you take a photo of Elizabeth the 3rd?” 24/7

Seven:

  • “Finally someone can take pictures of my babies for me.”
  • Will develop anything and everything from their photos. Mugs, t-shirts, pillowcases, calendars, you name it.
  • “It’s June, Seven.” – “Your point being?” – “I don’t need a new calendar in the middlE OF THE YEAR???”
  • MC doesn’t know how, but he always manages to get super rare photography equipment, pricey one too. They probably don’t want to know where he got it from.

V:

  • His favorite projects are ones where they collaborate with each other.
  • He works very hard on museum exhibitions that include work from both of them.
  • They go on trips together to look for things they can take pics of.
  • “Oh, I think I forgot–” – “I got you, you can use mine.”

I'm a Pisces and I hate myself tbh.. I've gone through such evil traumatic things.. my friends and family have.. the world has. I see all the evil and I know it so deeply and yet I still am naive like a new born child.. I still trust foolishly and I literally haven't learned yet how to not. And then I'm just mean and hard to compensate. I'm really sad tonight sorry if this is annoying. Do Pisces ever learn? All the older ones I know are so sad... since I was a baby I've felt too weak for life

Nah…. you aren’t annoying and I can empathize with you quite well. And I think Pisceans do learn a lot from life, they endure the most pain out of all the signs, they are each of the signs combined into one, you should feel good to be a Pisces. Being ruled by Jupiter and Neptune (which is the higher octave of Venus) is such a unique combination. Pisceans are too forgiving because they are kind, they want to believe that goodness exists, they want to believe that people are wholeheartedly caring. But then the world comes crashing down on them like a ton of bricks. Not everything is a walk through the park, and I think that is the harshest lesson that Pisces will learn about life. They are highly idealistic and want essentially a perfect world, one that is free of anything harmful or unpleasant. Of course, such desires are unattainable. And that may pain Pisceans greatly, as well as their realizations that human beings can be so cruel.

The older Pisceans I know are by far some of the wisest people I’ve met. I had a Ceramics teacher last year in high school who is a Pisces, and she was the sweetest person ever. Seriously, she spoke to EVERYONE in the class and was genuinely interested in what we had to say. When the students would be working on their ceramic projects, she would sit next to them and ask them how they’ve been, and students would give her recommendations for films/music and she would grab her notebook to write it down, she was so interested, it was so real. She had a soothing presence and could never be mean even if she tried. She loved me a lot because she knew my sister from previous years and liked her too, and so she would always engage in conversation with me, and even told me that I remind her of a deer (lmao). I don’t know though, she had such fascinating things to say and she was so open-minded, almost like a hippie, she was accepting of all kinds of people. And had a care-free approach to life, while still remaining kind. She might be my favorite Pisces that I know personally. She photographed me at my graduation as well, I didn’t ask her to or anything, she did it herself. One of my favorite Pisceans, Lou Reed, singer/songwriter of The Velvet Underground, is super wise too. He’s sarcastically wise though. He is both serious and not serious at the same time. But that is where his genius stems from. I like Lou Reed’s views of the world, you should check him out if you ever have the chance. Pisceans have the ability to become compassionate individuals with an understanding of life that is refreshing and relaxing.

Saw this gorgeous little Renault 10 parked out in front of one of my favorite restaurants the other month. I posted some phone photos before, but I like these a lot more. The first and second photo are two that I consider to be some of the best car photos I’ve ever taken. I saw it at just the right time, as the sun was going down. I’ve always loved the Renault 8/10, and I really love a lot of French cars from the 30s to the 70s. I’m happy to see things like this in Austin, and on the road at all.
