posting this for my wonderful hubby

Ilaria Urbinati:

Here’s the actual shot (not my bad dark photo of a photo that I posted last night cause I couldn’t wait:) from my cover with the wonderful Tom Hiddleston for their annual Power Stylist issue. Shot by my hubby @ericraydavidson at @fortunegymboxing. Thank you to @Gucci for outfitting us - what a dream! Thank you to one of my besties @amynadinemakeup for my makeup, @erin_mckay for my hair (and color:). A zillion thank you to @hollywoodreporter for this super fun honor two years in a row! And so much love to all my fellow kick ass powerful women (and men - looking at you @robzangardi ;) stylists for being honored for all your stunning work this year! And thank you to @twhiddleston for just being the friggin best! Can’t wait to post our hilarious interview from this!


aaand… goes to “the proposal" comic (and I still don’t know how to link a post! yay!)

It’s been a while since last stardew valley diary, because nowadays I usually drew ethan-related thing. In case there’s someone wondering, let me explain differences between them (or, I just love to explain something-not-asked haha forgive me) 

Stardew valley diary is almost totally based on my experience, so it’s a play-log with little exaggeration. and Ethan & sebby is more like fiction. Of course it is too, game based, but I use more imaginations on them. So yeah Sebastian is my hubby but also ethan’s. To tell the (shameful) truth, ethan is basically me. except energy level. and except extroversion. wait, what other traits does he have? (I’m extremely-introverted-low-energy-person yay. but still, I categorize myself to ethan’s side than my sweet hubby’s. I’m simple, optimistic, happy, short-tempered and I still can’t understand why he loves rain haha) Right now I fond of drawing ethans’ more, because in those I can draw more cute Sebastian (and it’s my ultimate purpose for this fanart drawing, "DRAW HIM CUTE!” < I’m doing my best in every scene where he appears)

and I think I talked too much in this posting. AGAIN. haha thanks a lot, as always, and please enjoy!

Gratitude for your support.

I once heard that you shouldn’t trust a person who kisses with their eyes open, but what’s a man to do when you can’t stop admiring your hubby.. 😍 I do wonder if Victor actually would post this tho xd

anonymous asked:

What are your favorite Harry/Luna stories?

ohh! You know, funnily enough, anon, a couple of months (and by a couple I mean like 6 months ago) I said I was going to make a master rec list for Lunarry fanfics. Unfortunately, I never got around to finishing it since there were still a lot of fics that I either couldn’t find or wasn’t finished reading yet.

That being said, I do have quite a big list so far, but for the sake of not overflooding the dashboard I’ll simply post some of my absolute favorites and if you (or anyone else) wishes I can post the rest of my lunarry recommendations.

First, my favorite multi-chapter fics:

Luna’s Year by Michelle_31a “Harry and his friends gradually discover a growing friendship with a certain Ravenclaw.” (note: This is my absolute favorite multi-chapter lunarry fic ever. I used to discuss Lunarry with Michelle_31a way back in the day before HBP came out and I believe she understands Luna’s character better than any fanfic author I’ve met, and so I cannot stress enough how wonderful this fic is. 100% Lunarry goodness.)

Luna’s Hubby by Meteoricshipyards
“7 year old Luna wants a husband, and she wants one now. With the unintended help of her befuddled father, she kidnaps Harry Potter.” (note: very fluffy and contains abused!Harry.)

Harry Potter and Ice-Cream Delights by Luckner
“Harry Potter knew better than anyone that a person’s life could be changed forever in a single day, but until he spent a summer day with Luna Lovegood he didn’t realize that his life could be made forever better. This story is an alternative summer following Harry’s fifth year. Spoilers for HBP and DH. Story intended for romantics, be warned.”

Contemplating Clouds by

“Apathetic Occlumency teacher twisting your mind out of shape? Never fear, there’s a charming young girl in the year below to twist it back in the opposite direction. Just hope it doesn’t snap.” (I hesitated to add this because it’s discontinued, however it’s one of the better multi chapter h/l fics out there so it’s pleasant for a short read.)

Now, some of my favorite one-shots:

Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast by delicfcd
“Being a true (for a given value of ‘true’) account of events preceding breakfast in a (slightly atypical) day in the lives of Luna Lovegood and Harry Potter.”

Like Invisible Strings by and_backagain

“The next night, unpacking his trunk, he discovers that he’s forgotten his spare set of quills, his last bag of Chocolate Frogs, and his Transfiguration book. Wrapped in a pair of his old socks, though, is the mirror, which Harry had snatched down from the window the moment he’d seen Dumbledore arrive.”

Harry and Luna’s Answering Machine by michelle_31a
“What might happen when these two lovebirds try to set up their very first answering machine…”

Knock, Knock by Michelle_31a
“Harry tries to tell a ‘knock-knock’ joke to Luna - ‘try’ being the operative word.”

Goodnight, Harry by museinmotion
“Sometimes it’s the quiet companionship.”

Insanity by cloudcreation
“Luna was not like everyone else, but Harry didn’t exactly give a damn. It wasn’t what was important.”

And that’s it! Those are some of my favorites. I have more on my rec list but the ones here are ones that I’ve read over and over and over again because I just love them so much. There are tons more Lunarry fanfics out there but I think these just capture Lunarry perfectly. :) Hopefully that helps, anon!


If you’re wondering why I haven’t been posting lately, it’s because I got married about a week ago and I am currently on my honeymoon till next weekend.

My hubby is keeping my face out of my phone and computer. As well as paper, because we are enjoying nature and the company of each other. I also really need to relax.

But ideas are flowing and I am hoping to write it all down on the return trip!

I love all you readers and miss interacting with you. You are all the greatest.

Send me Inquisitor Drawing Meme!



No Cardinal today, I’m posting these instead! ❤️

It was a wonderful day out and a fabulous play.
David Tennant is so full of energy, and the play is a ribald, bawdy, romp, happy, hilariously funny and profoundly sad all in one.
David has a wonderful soliloquy near the end which is so true, I wish I could post that too! (It echoed Malcolm’s speech at the Goolding Inquiry)

Wonderful stuff. 😊

Hope everyone has a great Sunday whatever you are doing! 😘

Chanbaek sharing clothes

Ok so the other day my sibling was I guess talking about her otp in an anime and going off about how they were sharing clothes and stuff. And upon over hearing that I swooped in and started giving my experiences on Chanbaek sharing clothes. 

Yeah my sibling rolled her eyes and walked away after that, but I just love it when they share clothes~ I like couple stuff too, but I feel like lots and lots of idols just get couple items for the fun of it. So sharing clothes is one of my favorites…until I find out other idols share clothes too…

Sharing a pretty blue plaid sweater~

Sharing a white shirt

Baekhyun be stealing Chanyeol’s birthday present, no wonder it’s so big on him. His arms don’t even fill up the entire sleeve! And that smirk Baek’s wearing, he’s like “yeah this is my hubbies’ Chanyeol’s jacket, what’cha gunna do ‘bout it?” and it’s supreme! Perfect for the supreme couple. 

See? Couple jacket. Supremeeeee

Oh and while looking for that through Let’s-talk-Baekyeol’s post, I noticed this

Exo showtime ep 4

Exo showtime ep 3

They have more couple hats. Moreeeeee

Along with these couple hats. Plus synchronization.

Enough with the couple stuff! I just put a sentence stating why couple stuff ain’t really my thing…

More big Chanyeol clothes. Ehehehehehe, look at how big it is on Baekhyun! He has to roll it up, like a lot. Well Chanyeol is bigger than he is, so he would fit perfectly in Chanyeol’s arms~ ahem.

And my fav!

Baekhyun giving Chan his sweater because Chanyeol’s shirt was too small on him ;_; featuring a lonely and done Chen. Wait did Chen just nod while Baekhyun was giving Chanyeol his sweater? 0-0

And yes I know Baekhyun generally takes his member’s clothes, as he stated in Happy Camp, but that’s like only simple things like socks and undershirts, this is full blown shirts and stuff, and the fact that they let each other wear each other’s stuff is just so gosh dang adorable. Like couples, when one partner (I like imagining the smaller one) wears other partner’s huge sweater and then the bigger partner just finds it so gosh dang adorable! Like me. 

(Also apparently the jacket Baekhyun wore during the v app, during Chan’s b day, was Chanyeol’s. But I can’t find good evidence ;_;)

Remember this radio show thing? Yeah this is where Baekhyun was wearing Chan’s jacket. And that radio thing had a healthy amount of Chanbaek moments too~ :3

I love it when they share clothes. Makes me fangirl. 


anonymous asked:

Hii!! Okay first of all I love your blog!! Reading your posts makes me all happy and giddy ehehe anyways I was wondering what're your thoughts on the chanbaek roommate ep? (I just recently rewatched it and yeah what's your take on it?) thank youu 💞


My thoughts on the roommate episode? Oho, I was going to make a post on that but never got the chance, so I’ll just do it now~

So it starts with Baekhyun calling Chanyeol, asking to come over.

(announcing to the world who is his hubby is calling him) 

I just found this funny, Baekhyun’s is doing nothing, and instead of hanging with Kyungsoo or anyone who is possibly nearby, he decides to bother Chanyeol who is probably farther away.

And that’s when it all started *dramatic music*

Baekhyun gets there before Chanyeol (because he was in a hurry to see his boyfie friend.

Or maybe the bus was really fast. BUT WAIT!!!! Why in the world would you take a bus? Like here you are, an idol (a very popular one too) taking a bus where you could possibly get trampled, why not ask the manager to take you, they would right? Getting more noticed in variety, unless! Baekhyun didn’t want anyone to be aware that he was going on a secret mission (like romeo and juliet) to see his hubby to see Chanyeol. Hmmm suspicious.

I also found this intriguing, I mean Baekhyun is usually that jokester that is great at socializing (correct me if I am wrong, I am not a Baekhyun stan) but here he is all awkward with just a few people and needing Chanyeol to be here so he can break the ice. It’s reminds me of a couple and one of them introducing the other to their parents. (excuse my delulu mind)

(look at dat smile yo)

I just love this. Like Baekhyun so naturally and instinctively fit his hand in Chanyeol’s. Usually friends would do a high five or heck those “ey yo bro” hugs. But these two? nah

Oh but the moments just get better.

Checking out Chanyeol’s room together with, ohh I forgot his name, was it like mama shin or something? Sorry if I’m wrong. Lol, Chanyeol’s adorable face, he just had that second where he was just staring at clumsy Baek. I love it.

Then they gotta go into that place where they gotta be with everyone else. (Why can’t they just have some alone time!)

But it’s ok, their moments were absolutely adorable even with everyone else.

Stares man. GOSH DANG EYE CONTACT!!! And then shy Baekhyun. Makes my heart flutter all the time.

(He’s like a little puppy! Halp me!!)

Ya’ll know how Chanyeol has a habit of hitting things when he laughs and stuff? I don’t know why, maybe I’m biased but I think it’s the cutest when he starts smacking Baekhyun. 

This had to be the most suspicious part for me. When everyone was focusing on that guy (forgot his name, I’m so sorry) Baekhyun all of a sudden as if taking a chance swoops in and wraps his arm around Chanyeol’s shoulder, like so casually that Chanyeol seemed a bit “huh?” but of course leaned close to Baekhyun anyway. But the face they did some skinship wasn’t the interesting part, but where and how they did it. First of all, why do it now? I mean if Chanbaek is just fan service, why not do it when you were on the couch, where everyone could see, why do it when everyone’s attention was on something else, and it was quite hard to pick up? Barely even noticed cause my eyes were on that funny guy. Also Baekhyun (despite being all touchy with Sehun) he doesn’t really start skinships with Chanbaek, the only other time I can really think of is the footsie. Maybe the skinships that Baekhyun starts have meaning? I don’t know, this side hug appeals to me as more of a couple feel than just friends (to me only). I don’t know why, it just does, like me personally I just throw my arms around my friend, I don’t slowly and gently feel my way up their back. 

I swear, I bet you Chanyeol just wanted to put Baekhyun in front just to look at his booty (lol my dirty mind). I mean come on Baekhyun had said his pants were too tight and look at Chanyeol’s face. Do you make those expressions while dancing with you friend? Probably not. If so, learn to control them, or people might get the wrong idea. Like right now.

And without fire you can’t have light. And without light you can’t have fire. (and don’t any of ya’ll ruin the mood by saying there’s such thing as flashlights!)


(during the part where they were demonstrating the jumprope part in overdose) Dear park Chanyeol. Even when you think we can’t see you, we CB shippers are sharper than you think. So don’t look too proud.

Chanyeol, you’re staring again. I know he’s beautiful, but you don’t want to be too obvious.

My fav = height difference

This had to be my favorite part. A moment mixed with skinship and jealousy~

Ok so before the skinship, Baekhyun was asked, which female he was most curious about, then all of a sudden Chanyeol’s face is that serious one, as seen in the gif above, and with no need for it, reaches for the slicer in Baekhyun’s hand. *ahem* “accidentally” brushes his hand with Baekhyun’s (both times). I swear he was probably like “I’m da best, ya better remember dat.” and luckily (or unluckily, depends on how you look at it) Baekhyun chose the manliest girl. 

And that brings us to the end of our Chanbaek roommate journey, those were just some of my thoughts as well as my favorite moments in roommate.

Now I’m gunna sleep. Cuz I’m tired. And I have nothing else to do with my boring life except for waiting for the next episode of my anime (if you like anime, you should watch boku no hero academia that’s where I got this gif from). 

(actually this is the sped up version of the actual gif, but still a good animu) -3-

Good night darlings~

(ps thank you for loving my blog anon~)


Well, look at what Amazon finally dragged in, The Flash s3 Blu-ray. No wonder it was on back order. We usually don’t get things when they first come out to avoid delays and to wait for stuff to go on sale. However, the hubby really surprised me this time (he usually gives himself away). And over 2 hours of bonus content too?! It also has a nice insert inside just like my s1, but for some strange reason, my s2 didn’t. Also, despite his loving surprise, I know the teasing won’t stop which is why till this day I still call him Savitar. I know he thinks he’s being funny, so I tease right back by using his parents. Lol

One weekend, I decided to continue my rewatch on Netflix while Hubby’s mom was here. She had her fill of binge-watching Rizzoli & Isles, so I continued where I left off on 3.20 of The Flash. She was so into it, she said she needs to remember to watch when it comes on tv. Then, we get to 3.22, and she is stone-faced with tears in her eyes watching the death scene. I teased hubby in an email while he’s at work about what I had his mom watching, and he was like, ‘NOOO. Stop recruiting people to that show!’ I told him I had to show her 3.23 so she can see how Iris survives. I was so tickled to torture him like that.

Then, when his dad came to pick her up (they live about 2 ½ hrs away and she just had knee surgery), he started browsing our CW app on the Roku to ask about Black Lightning. Thennnn, he saw an ad for The Flash and proceeded to ask me what’s been going on lately. He told me he stopped watching some time around 2A because it was too cheesy for him. So, we watched catch-up videos to get him up to speed and 3.01 on Netflix since you don’t have ads on that app. Mr Savitar Husband interrupts us by saying, ‘the only reason she watches this is because of the romance.’ (Insert eyes with 🔥coming out) That’s not true, and just because he’s frustrated with the writing so much that he stopped watching, he shouldn’t deny the pleasure I’ve exposed his parents to. Now, with these blu-rays…game over, honey bunny. It’s on and popping.

fullmetalswife  asked:

Hello there! I saw your tags, and so excited to see that you ship with Al(this angel needs all the love he can get, you know?) So I was wondering if I could ask about your guys relationship! What's it like? (*°▽°*)

  BOY, I AM SO GLAD YOU ASKED. Especially since like…. Seeing your posts with you and Ed is just…the cutest thing…..
     Okay! So, Al and I……

   We’re that sappy couple, honestly. The kind that helps out in the community (despite my shyness, which Alphonse helps me with SO MUCH; I’m blessed), has a fair group of friends that we tend to hang out with and just…have some fun together. Like baking! Al and I have had too much fun with that… Ehehe~

   We also mainly adopt cats (we’re both so terribly attached to them), but also try to help out and care for any strays…and get them homes….. Our own house is often turned into an animal shelter and mini-vet in one, LMAO. (But neither of us actually have veterinary experience, so if something looks bad, we do what we can before rushing off to the real professionals.)

   And just….we’re sappy. I mentioned that already, but it’s so bad. If we’re not together holding hands or linking arms, happily introducing each other as our s/o, it’s us being apart and gushing to anyone who’ll listen about how blessed we are. Alphonse is definitely “better” at it than I am, heheh!! Where he’ll go full-steam into it about how cute I am and how precious it is that I sometimes cry over cute things (aka baby kittens and sometimes babies), I’m a lot more shy… My words tend to be a little hesitant at first, worried about if I might be bothering someone…but once I get started, good luck stopping me!!

   Currently, we’re married! We “officially” own three cats, but many others come and go… Also two dogs who haven’t found a home yet, one who’s only really warmed up to us. (Which makes Alphonse feel safer if he goes out for awhile with his brother; that dog is our lil’ guard dog~!) So…they’re also ours, but you’ll tend to see them more in the yard than in the house. The dogs get along with the cats for the most part, but… They do get too rambunctious sometimes, so it’s easier that way!

   We’ve actually also talked about kids at a length, but… Not quite yet~ I can’t help but agree with Alphonse that we definitely need a bit more time on it and also to make sure we’ll be able to handle a little one in our lives~

The reasons Oscars week's Sweeran was so adorable!

So, Taylor took “her friend” Ed as her date (boy, the media’s so blind I’m rollin my eyes!) but what’s Sweeran did that was so special was:

1. Taylor took Ed as her date (she said earlier that she only takes her brother, Austin, when she’s not dating. BUT SHE TOOK ED)

2. They fucking MATCH!! Their clothes match. Ed in BLACK tee&jacket/RED sneakers (the ones from his first bday post on Instagram, maybe it’s a gift from Tay, MAYBE). Taylor in hot BLACK dress/Red nails. It’s one of those wonderful little details showing they’re there as a couple! *tears*

3. Taylor’s heels. Much shorter than the stilettos she normally wears. (Let’s face it, she’s doing it for Ed to feel comfortable and that’s just so sweet) *sobbing*

3. They stuck together all night. Join at the hips *more sobbing*

4. Taylor’s head leans into Ed’s in the photo with the Jamie King couple. Honestly, it a Sweeran photo moment with extras on the side. *may I have some tissue?*

5. Ed’s head rests so comfortably on Taylor’s in the Photobooth photos and how she looked so at ease at the closeness of it all. *fucking crying my eyes out*

6. The post-party tweets/Instagram from both Ed and Taylor - Ed with Murray (we know you took it Taylor!) and Taylor’s post just showing and CONFIRMING they’re having the greatest time together. Way to wrap up the wonderful night!!



This one time I went to Texas and I fulfilled the lifelong dream of getting to eat food cooked by straightarrowlife!!

We had been planning for me to attend her birthday dinner for weeks but I was just afraid that if I told tumblr before it happened then I would jinx it!!

I met up with one of my all time favorite people thatsminethankyou and we rode from her place to Melissa’s. It was SOOO much fun getting to hang out and take a mini road trip to ft. Worth (by mini I mean 45 minutes). She has great taste in music and is just as fun and wonderful as I had imagined.

When we got to Melissa’s place, helloagainsam was there too which was a lot of fun. She and I both follow each other but now like we know KNOW each other. (Btw she’s hilarious yall)

Melissa cooked Indian food which I had never ate before and it was so delicious! It was so cool to get to witness her cooking in real life. She spent the whole evening looking after her guests which says a lot about a person when it’s their birthday. Oh and all the wonderful things she says about her hubby and cats are true too. What a wonderful, thoughtful, fun family they have.

I had so much fun spending time with some of my favorite internet people. What’s even better is now that when I read their posts I can hear their actual voices in my head.

Score another point for tumblr. Internet friendships are some of the best friendships around.

Submitted to me:

I am a forty-three year old mother of two from the US. I was looking on you tube at One Direction videos to show my kids after Thanksgiving and stumbled on the whole Larry thing. I don’t know that I would call myself a “shipper” at this age, but what I have discovered is a beautiful love story. The greatest evidence for me are the tattoos. My hubbie thinks I am nuts, but going on tumblr, you tube and twitter are my new “hobbies.” My 8 yo and I will be wearing rainbows in Chicago!

Amazing story! Your post reminded me of a chat I had with my people 2 days ago. We wondered why het moms are getting so much hate. (I certainly had my fair share here) It’s because of this. You, me and all the Larry moms have the power to decide how to raise their children, how to teach them about genders, sexuality, awareness. And they are scared shitless.

It’s the biggest power and I am so happy you are taking your kid to the concert with a Rainbow! :)

Sign up for Rainbow Direction, you can do that anonymously if you don’t have tumblr.
