Hello Cosmere Fandom, long no time no talk? 

Okay so none of you probably remember me cause I was only active in the fandom for a few months like, two years ago? Nearly three years? Well shit. ANYWAYS. Felt like dropping in to say hello, cause I remember you guys, and i know CFSBF and I miss it.

So recently my boyfriend started reading The Way of Kings, and it’s kind of the best thing ever. Because it’s my favorite book and I’m now rereading, for a seventh time cause I love it just that much. He’s been sending me little updates and I decided to screenshot them and share them with you for reasons. So, I guess the following pictures contain vagueish spoilers for Way of Kings? Gonna put the rest under a cut cause there’s a looot of them.

Sansukh Re-read Ch.7

Thorin made a special point of witnessing the lad’s celebration. Fíli and Kíli spent all their time gawking at Gimrís, and Frerin did naught but complain that he couldn’t drink the very fine spirit Bilbo had sent from the Shire for the occasion. Bifur was entertaining himself by walking through people. It was a very unnerving sight.

I love this. Thorin’s there to watch the celebration, Fíli and Kíli just want to stare at Gimrís, Frerin just wants to complain about not being able to drink, and Bifur’s having fun being dead and being able to walk through people. Different dwarves enjoy the celebration differently, and I love the variety.

“Thank you, Aunt Dís,” he said, dazed as he accepted it. The bag fell away to reveal a pair of very familiar throwing axes. He looked up, his eyes wide and white. She smiled.

“Fíli would like you to have them, no doubt,” she said.

I always have feels at this point. Years ago, when Gimli first started going to visit Dís, she couldn’t bear to part with Fíli or Kíli’s things, because the wound was too fresh. Now, it’s healed a little, at least it’s not as raw, and she can bear to part with something of Fíli’s because she knows it’s something Gimli would be able to put to good use, and Fíli would rather them be used than just sit in a closet somewhere.

The Ri Brothers had banded together and had made him a beautiful warm woollen travelling surcoat with a matching pair of trousers. The stitching around the edges was hardy and strong, and the colour was a warm rusty brown that made the red of his beard appear brighter. “Thank you!” Gimli said, and held it up to admire the gold thread interwoven through the edges.

Whenever they band together, they always do great things. Joining a quest, making fantastic traveling clothes, etc.

“Gimrís,” he said in awe. “You made this?”

She bristled. “What, are you calling me a liar?”

As much as I love their bickering, it sort of backfired in this case for Gimrís. She’s expecting their usual trade of loving insults, and instead Gimli’s honestly astonished at what a beautiful gift she’d made him and so she has to discuss feelings.

“Well,” she said, uncomfortable in his embrace, “I suppose you’re not completely awful.”

He rolled his eyes, and then he leaned in and kissed her cheek. “Namadith. You’re not always a brat.”

“That’s as close as they’ll ever get, I suppose,” Mizim said with a sigh, dabbing at her eyes.

She’s probably not wrong about that.

A set o’ lungs on the bairn that echoed even in my ears!“

"Aye, and is that why you dropped him?” Glóin said, his eyebrow arching. Mizim folded her arms, her eyes glinting rather dangerously. Óin let go of Gimli’s shoulders like hot coals.

“Ah, er…”

“Óin dropped the baby?” said Bombur incredulously.

“Aye, right on his precious wee head. Lucky he’s a Dwarf, or it could have hurt him!”

“Lucky he landed on his head, you mean,” Gimrís said. “Did the floor tiles crack?”

Gimli scowled at her.

“He wouldn’t stop wriggling!” Óin said. “I hadn’t delivered a babby before. He was the first – I was nervous!”

This is my favorite thing ever. Óin getting drunk and embarrassing Gimli, with unwitting help from Mizim and Glóin, by talking about his birth. Gimli should be lucky that he lives in an Age before there were cameras, or the three of them would’ve probably been bringing out naked baby pictures.

“Poor little mite, dropped on his head - an’ Mizim swearin’ a blue streak an’ all, an’ Glóin about to faint wi’ first-time-father jitters,” Óin crooned, patting the mortified Gimli’s cheek. “Still, it didn’t faze him at all! He just roared at me some more, an’ when I picked him back up he straightaway soiled himself all down the front o’ my apron t’ teach me a lesson.”

Drunk Óin is hilarious.

Gimrís was trying in vain to muffle her snickers by biting down on her hand. Gimli scowled at her. “You wait til it’s your turn. Eight years, sister. Watch your back.”

“Aye, not long until you’ve reached your centenary, little lass,” said Glóin, smiling at her.

She tossed her head. “If you tell such stories about me, I’ll put an emetic in your food.”

I approve of Gimrís’ method of getting them to not tell embarrassing stories about her. Gimli’s probably regretting that he didn’t think up a suitable threat before this all happened.

“And I saw her first!” Fíli snapped. “Thorin, tell him to keep his grubby hands to himself!”

Thorin shook his head. “Not for all the world.”

“If you do,” Bifur added, his face alive with gladness, “I will knock out every one of your teeth.”

Again, I love Bifur. He’s not even alive anymore, and he still will do whatever’s in his power (although that’s not much considering he’s dead) to make sure Bofur gets his shot at happiness.

“Khuzd tada bijebî âysîthi mud oshmâkhî dhi zurkur ughvashâhu, oh, never thought I would live to see the day,” Bifur said happily.

“You didn’t,” said Fíli sourly.

“Oh, hush,” Thorin told his grousing nephews, a lump in his throat. “Bofur is falling in love, his dearest wish, and they have the time to be together. That is no small thing.”

Okay, even though Fíli only said it because he’s grumpy that someone else is with Gimrís, that’s hilarious. And Thorin looking at those two and seeing what could have been if he and Bilbo had just wised up sooner? All the feels.

Thorin ignored him with as much dignity as he could muster – which was a lot.

Understatement of the Age.

Glóin drew Mizim aside. “Did what I just think happened actually happen?”

“You’ve got eyes,” she said under her breath. “Yes, our daughter is diving headlong into courting faster than a dropped hammer, and you, you old bear, are going to respect her wishes and leave Bofur alone, d'you hear?”

“I wouldn’t hurt him!” he protested. “He’s of the Company! I’d just… I’d just scare him a little.”

Overprotective Papa Glóin is no match for his wife. Mizim won’t let him threaten Bofur and risk chasing him off. She probably noticed that he’s a little insecure about the fact that he’s older than Gimrís and knows that it wouldn’t take much ‘scaring’ to chase him off even if he does love Gimrís.

“About sixty, sixty-five so far,” said Náli, the old white-haired training-master.

“Too many,” Thorin whispered. “One Dwarf is too many, let alone sixty-five!”

Oh Balin, what are you doing? You’ve lost your mind, it’s like Thorin said, your love of tradition is getting the better of you. Don’t you remember Azanulbizar? Do you really want another battle like that?

“The Balrog,” Thorin spat.

Gimli’s shoulders tensed. “Aye, but what of Durin’s Bane?”

Many faces blanched, but several Dwarves scoffed loudly. “An ancient thing long turned to dust! We have naught to fear from old tales!”

You are all gonna be eating those words soon enough.

“Ori,” Thorin said helplessly, and then he scrubbed his face with his hands. “No, not Ori. Youngest of us all, little Ori in your knitted gloves… Ori, you are but a hundred and eleven! I cannot… Ori, in Moria, your brothers…”

I wonder, if Ori had realized how soon Nori would be dying, and how alone Dori would be, if he still would have agreed. On the one hand, it’s important to have a historian along on something like this. On the other hand, he’d be leaving Dori alone with no one to care for.

“Aye, well, my uncle is more than a little deep in his cups,” Gimli laughed, and clapped Lóni’s back. “Ask him again when he is sober!”

When he’s sober, he’s still interested. It’s a good thing Thorin talked you out of going too, though, or else the Fellowship would have ended differently.

Not long after Gimli’s nameday, Dwalin was completely blindsided by a proposal of courtship from his deputy, the stony, severe Orla. He had been so surprised he actually said yes.

Orla turning Dwalin’s world upside down and proposing to him is awesome. I can’t lie, though, she’s my favorite OC in Sansukh, so I think a lot of what she does is awesome.

One of Dwalin’s troops made the mistake of joking about the relationship.

No-one made that mistake ever again.

I wonder if Orla took care of it, Dwalin did, or if they teamed up to do it.

“Hello, my boy,” he said softly. “Hello Thorin, son of Dwalin.”

“Oh, you did not,” said Thorin in disgust.

Everyone wants to name their kids after you, Thorin, you need to get used to it.

“You bloody stupid noble twit,” were Nori’s first words to Thorin, and he lowered his head and laughed softly.

“Aye, guilty as charged. But at least I wasn’t killed over a rigged game of conkers.”

Nori dying because of a rigged game of conkers is hilarious! I mean, it’s sad he died, but just the reason for his death being /conkers/ of all things? That’s hilarious.

“Tashf!” Bifur snapped, and then launched himself at Nori and wrapped him in his arms. Nori gasped as all the air was knocked out of him.

“Mahal below, what the…” he choked.“Bifur, hang on a bleedin’ second, let a body get his breaf back…”

“He’s a little excited to see you,” said Fíli dryly.

“Nah, really? Do tell,” Nori managed.

“D'you think he’ll do that to each one of the Company as they arrive?” Kíli wondered.

“Yes,” Bifur said emphatically. “I will, and stop talking about me as if I weren’t here.”

“Wait a mo, he’s speaking in Westron…!”

“He does that now,” Kíli said. “It’s getting him to stop that’s the trick. Hello Nori!”

I love Bifur. I love their reactions to Bifur here, but I mostly just love Bifur and how enthusiastic he is to welcome all of his friends when they die.

Dead, yes. Retired? Never.

Best summary of Nori’s personality ever, in less than 5 words.

He wanted to know who that young whelp was, following Bilbo around like a lost puppy!

Thorin, you’re jealous of a little hobbit, calm down. Bilbo didn’t forget you.

The boy looked confused, as though hearing such things out of the mouths of adults was not something he was used to. “You… don’t mind me having a secret hiding place?”

“Heavens no, Frodo m'boy. I have so many secrets they positively leak out of my ears; why in the world would I mind you having secrets of your own? Come on, put your bags down, and let’s go see about elevensies, shall we?”

I love Bilbo and Frodo’s interactions, especially when Frodo’s this young. And Bilbo having so many secrets that they leak out of his pointed ears is an understatement, especially when you consider his secret love of Thorin and the Ring, among others.

“Rivendell!” Frodo took a step forward out from underneath Bilbo’s arm, his large blue eyes wide. “Do you think I will ever see it?”

Fascination with elves must be in the Baggins DNA. None of the other Bagginses leave the Shire, though, so only Bilbo and Frodo have discovered it.

“Yes, Uncle Bilbo!” Frodo said with one last longing look at Rivendell, before racing down the corridor. Thorin’s lips parted on a soft breath of surprise.

Then he berated himself for an idiot and a fool.

“An uncle?” He turned to Bilbo. “I didn’t know you had siblings. How could I not know that about you?”

He was a little disconcerted. Thorin wanted to know everything about Bilbo. Everything. He could not fulfil his promise otherwise.

Your married is showing again, Thorin. Also, just be glad you don’t have Frerin or one of the others with you this time, or they would’ve teased you so much about being jealous of the little hobbit.

He’d long grown used to seeing Bilbo’s proficiency in the kitchen, though it never failed to make his mouth quirk. Why was one blade so different to another? Perhaps he should have suggested that the Burglar dice his enemies.

That actually might have helped Bilbo learn to use the sword. Just describe different food preparation techniques and have Bilbo act them out with the sword.

Thorin smiled to himself. “Even stubborn, blind, arrogant Dwarves.”

“Even idiots with their great heads stuffed firmly up their backsides,” added Bilbo, his mouth twitching. Thorin started in surprise, and then shook his head, laughing softly beneath his breath.

“Blasted creature.” How he wished… oh, how he wished. His arms ached to hold the infuriating little Burglar. He wanted to touch Bilbo’s curly hair, and to feel those nimble little hands against the nape of his neck. He longed to kiss that quick and clever mouth, to nip that sharp tongue with his teeth. “Blasted, ridiculous, absurd Hobbit.”

As funny as this is, it also has all the feels.

“If I gave you a beard, would you leave me alone?!”

Mahal’s resorting to bribery, the plan to be annoying is working a bit more quickly than I’d suspected. Then again, it’s best to never underestimate dwarves.


oi, there’s more slides I made for this. But I can apparently only have 10 pictures in slides format. I will add this neat keep reading link and see what happens. THERE WILL BE TWO MANGA SPOILERS IF YOU READ ON. PLENTY OF WARNING, MY LOVELY FANDOM

hisokawa  asked:

do you have any nejiten fic recommendations?


I have way more in my bookmarks but sometimes I save some for hyucks, b/c I’m in the mood to read anything (& after I’ve gone through the good ones) (life of a shipper whaddya know). I’m wAY pickier when I’m re-entering fic world for a ship, so without further ado: 

Psst! by Arkana 

Summary: Lee finds out about Neji and Tenten’s relationship the hard way. The VERY hard way. [Team Gai love]

(Notes: Ok…this is probably one of my favorite ones of all time because Lee is a central part and he ISN’T like staring at Neji and Tenten all 5-year-old confused at the revelation of their relationship (which is my biggest pet peeve). Super funny, Team Gai bein’ dorks and BFFs.)

Pumpkins and Anthropology, by maravelous

Summary: “I think humans are more beautiful than any story or picture ever made.” — ShikaTema & NejiTen

(Notes: Cute & funny all around; this author writes a cute NejiTen, where Neji’s a Nice Person. Some of her other works have an interesting off-kilter prose-ish beat to it; took me a bit to get into the writing style, but her scenarios are nice.)

coda in d minor, by metaphorically-blue

Summary: She doesn’t look like her father. /And children can’t recognize grief./ /future!fic, sort of Team Gai/

(Notes: Wow??? The subtlety is really well done and the themes are well crafted and well woven into the story. I don’t think their names are even mentioned in the story, which I think is really beautiful. )

scarborough fair, by windsilk

Summary: Remember me to one who lives there; for once, he was a true love of mine. —Neji/Tenten.

(Notes: Well-crafted, their relationship is well expressed (tiny, beautiful moments), even if I don’t entirely agree with all of the sentiments (mostly towards the end).)

Wish, by The Silver Feathered Raven

Summary: A thousand little moments that come from one wish, from one dream. Tenten centric.

(Notes: Another huge favorite of mine because I’m a sucker for Tenten-centric stories. Not Nejiten, but their relationship is portrayed well in this.)

Blood drops and sharpened steel, by subtlyfailing

Summary: When she pulls the kunai out of her first dead man’s throat, the blood that stains her hands won’t wash out for days. She shakes for weeks, adrenaline roaring, her head filled with images of red smiles and bloodless faces… (Note: I cut the summary short for length purposes. Sorry!)

(Notes: MORE TENTEN CENTRIC STUFF ENOUGH SAID. All about Tenten figuring out ways to be herself; my favorite bit is when she compares herself to Sakura and comes to revelations about the differences in their path choices.)

Pavement, by Lacewood

Summary: Neji, Tenten and a chance meeting on a street. The past is behind them, on a growing stretch of pavement

(Notes: Prettay angsty) 

The Game, by DrerrRedclaw

Summary: One man dies: chaos, order, and everything in between ensues. Character studies, ShikaTema, NejiTen. Futurefic, expect OOC due to age and experience.

(Notes: The NejiTen is on ch. 4 if you’re curious, lol, but really, read the whole thing. Nice character studies and a strong plot to tie everything together.)

When the Moon Hits Your Eye, by Goldberry

Summary: Tenten has plans for Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately, so does everyone else.

(Notes: Not your usual Valentine’s Day story (yergh…I can’t stand those); cute, funny, in-character, the ending is a winner. This author has a LOT of other NejiTen stories that are all really well done–she writes Neji really well.)

Spilled Ink, by memory’s marionette

Summary: The only tears she sheds for him breathe on rough parchment, scrawled within the characters of his name that she writes over and over and over again. A romance written in reverse. NejiTen.

(Notes: Reverse fic, goes into Tenten’s calligraphy & scrolls. This author (@iridescentirises) was the one who wrote the Pro-Nejiten essays, so she defs knows what’s up. My only confusion was with the ending…I still can’t quite figure it out, but the sentiments overall in the story are v nice.)

Twenty Matters of Pride to Hyuuga Neji, by Kraken’s Ghost

Summary: All Hyuuga are proud. Neji measures his pride differently.

(Note: Not NejiTen, but who cares, it’s about Neji and his team, and what they mean to him. A pretty excellent character study. I just…wish the title was different, esp for a fic as thoughtful as this one.)

Interrogation, by Yugao

Summary: One day, Lee decides to interrogate Neji on his love life, but he ends up learning more than he bargained for.

(Notes: Neji & Lee being friends, Lee being Sociably More Sane than Neji, which I love.)

NSFW Territory: 

On Sex, by Lotos-Eater

Summary: With titles like this, who needs summaries?

(Notes: Really not what you think; 0% fluff, 0% Neji & Tenten going at it like rabbits, 100% real & real-life awkward. TW for a dark past. I’m not sure if this would ever happen, but it’s pretty well done. NSFW for obvious reasons.)

woohoo, by mellieforyellie

Summary: congratulations, it’s 2 am and you’re covered in glitter and what you’re pretty sure is tequila bottles. you’re headed places, kid. — inspired by TLFN ; word-vomit collection.

(Notes: And then on the opposite end of the spectrum in the rated M/E fics, we have this. It’s ALL sex, every chapter is about it, but she writes them all in character, and honestly has one of the best portrayals of Neji & Tenten’s relationship that I’ve seen?? (Ch. 11). Very NSFW so tread carefully if it’s not your cup of tea.)

Non Team Gai/NejiTen fics:

Five Things Sakura Will Never Tell Naruto by sowell 

Summary: Kunoichi know how to keep their secrets.

(Notes: WOW, OKAY, I will admit I supported Naruto/Sakura a LOT so when the ending came out my heart sort of broke a little bit and laughed really hard. (I don’t feel too strongly about them anymore; Naruto & Hinata are hella cute.) This fic remedies it for me though, it writes their relationship in this pretty dynamic way that isn’t shippy at all.)

Knockout by Rilina

Summary: Sakura during the time skip (and a little after it too). Gen.

(Notes: Sakura-centric, feat. Team Gai in a little snippet that’s Pretty Great.)


If anyone has recs, send me a message I am always down 4 more of this OTP business NejiTen we OUT  

Jealous John Fic Rec List

Compiled for @lawyermargo. Thank you so much for your suggestions, and I hope you enjoy!

A Brand of Gold by aquabelacqua: This is a fantastically smutty fic in which Sherlock asks John to help him flirt with someone (spoiler: he wants to learn how to flirt with John). So adorable and incredibly hot!

Possession by CaitlinFairchild: An established relationship fic in which Sherlock flirts with someone to get access to information and John is not pleased. Part of her Somatic Theory series (also known as “the hottest BDSM you will ever read”) and overall fantastic.

Fallout by allonsys_girl: A post-season 3 fic in which John and Sherlock are working together when Victor Trevor enters the picture. Features a likable Victor Trevor and plenty of jealousy; a great fic.

High and Tight, Soft and Loose by cwb: This wonderful fic features one of my favorite misunderstandings of all time. John is terribly jealous when he thinks that someone else is sleeping with Sherlock; miscommunications abound. It’s fantastic, go read it!

The Edinburgh Problem by snorklepie: This is one of my favorite ever case fics (very well crafted with amazing original characters), and it features a jealous John! Absolutely a must read.

I’d Probably Still Adore You With Your Hands Around My Neck by Mssmithlove: This is a great teenlock fic in which Sherlock and John are roommates at uni who secretly pine after each other. It’s a WIP but regularly updated, and a generally fantastic fic. If you like teenlock and jealousy, this is the fic for you!

All Along by PlainJane: This is the epitome of Jealous John. Dimmock flirts with Sherlock and John is, unsurprisingly, not happy about it. So great, go read it!

The Boy Who Drank Stars by kinklock: This is an incredible fusion with Howl’s Moving Castle, although no prior knowledge is necessary. It’s a brilliant story and John is terribly jealous of Irene Adler. I loved it; read it!

I can’t pretend by salambo06: John pretends to be Sherlock’s husband; such a fantastic story. I definitely recommend this one!

self-loving, self-loathing by kinklock: John sadly wanks to one of the tabloids Janine sold her story to. So much pining; a great fic.

Bread and Wine and Curry Once A Week by cwb: This is one of my favorite jealous John fics! John advises Sherlock to write a letter to the person he’s in love with, without realizing Sherlock is in love with him. So wonderful; a must read.

I was so happy when I first saw this pic. Echo Awards 2012, both Led Zeppelin and Linkin Park are nominated. Jimmy and Jonesy are there for Zep, Mike and Joe for LP.
I imagined beforehand that especially Mike would probably be excited to be able to meet the Zep guys and then he posted this pic afterwards and I was so happy.
From all the musicians that were there, Mike chose the greatest ones to take a picture with and it’s so awesome to see members of my two favorite bands ever together.

Random trivia, Mike sampled the drums of When the Levee Breaks in one of his mixtapes and there’s also a big Zep-reference in some lyrics he wrote. Plus Chester calls Robert one of his favorite singers and one time he even performed some Zep songs with Slash.

Oh, and both Zep and LP won their Echo Awards that year (okay, Zep got theirs for their lifetime achievement so it was obvious^^)

I have a lot to say about this picture so I’m gonna put everything I have to say in list form ok here we go

  • Silver’s golden cuffs are not a part of his gloves. It’s canon. His gloves are actually separate from his cuffs oh my gosh
  • Silver put of of his gloves on the snowman so it’d sorta look like him oh my gosh 5000 dork points.
  • 50 more dork points for matching scarves.
  • 500 more dork points for giving the snowman a smile.
  • 50000 more dork points for building a snowman in the first place.
  • He’s probably wearing that scarf because he can’t fit a hat on his head, cute.

And last but not least

  • This picture has become my favorite ever picture of Silver the Hedgehog because of all those things listed above.

ACMs — Las Vegas


So I just got back from Las Vegas. I was there for the ACMs, and I had an amazing time. Well, amazing for me is working constantly. So I was verrry happy with this trip. haha. My producer, Nathan, came with me to sing harmonies at some of the shows we were doing. His wife, Steph, and my mom also came. 
On the way there, I was on the same plane as Sarah Buxton. She’s a new artist on Lyric Street and we’ve written together before. I love her. So we had a delay in the Phoenix airport and were just sitting there… So I got out my guitar, then Nathan did, then so did her accompanist.. And we just started playing right there in the airport. Pretty soon people starting gathering around to hear us and we got a pretty good crowd going! I love stuff like that, it was so much fun. When we got to Vegas, we went to our hotel, the MGM.. It was the same one all the artists were staying at so it was awesome to see famous people walking around everywhere. 
The next day, I had a radio interview and performance in the morning. Then I did what’s called a radio remote. That’s where about two hundred radio stations are all in one huge room set up at tables. All the artists walk around to each one and say what are called liners (“Hey this is Taylor Swift, and you’re listening to _______!”) and do interviews. It was amazing. I loooooved it because its just talking to people. I could talk to a door. 
So then I had a fan performance for about 30 contest winners from different radio stations. I did that with Jack Ingram and Jimmy Wayne. They are both amazing, and Jack’s probably my favorite guy singer out there right now. The next day, I had a fan performance at the House of Blues. There were a bunch of artists doing it.. Me, Jack, Katrina Elam, Trent Tomlinson, Trent Wilmon.. It went amazing, I had so much fun with that one. After that was an autograph signing, and everyone I met was really sweet.
Then at lunchtime was a luncheon that Big Machine Records had for people in the radio industry, it was at Studio 54. It was alot of fun, and the sound was really good there. After that I had to rush to get ready for the red carpet at the ACMs. When we got there, I walked onto the carpet and there were all these photographers taking pictures and screaming my name. It was probably the coolest thing EVER. haha. All of my favorite singers were on the carpet, and I was kind of in awe the whole time.. while doing about fifty interviews.
I had to leave before the show, but it was an amazing trip and I’m SOOO excited to get out on the road again. I’m so bad at sitting in one place. I love what I do, and I’m so thrilled about what’s happening.

My single comes out June 19th. I don’t think I’ve ever been this happy in my life.


anonymous asked:

Alex is the best distraction so....what is your favourite Alex look, favourite stage persona and favourite album?xo

This is the best ask. I couldn’t wait to answer. I thought about it a lot, and I think this is going to be a tough decision for me. (I always feel like I should preface all of my answers about his looks with like a ‘I really admire him as a person, Arctic Monkeys have been a constant in my life for years, they’re very important’ and all of this other shit but then I’m like ‘idk I think everyone knows this already? Alright here I go.)

Fave look:

This is tough. Sometimes I want to say Humbug because look at him:

He was like just cocky and stoned enough to like … Be attractive. Like he maybe gained some confidence, did some coke in the desert with josh homme, got a super hot gorgeous girlfriend aka ALEXA CHUNG and realized he was cool enough to do this.

But then like, this happened: 

And just when 2011 me thought he couldn’t get any better, THIS happened:

So I guess my answer is… I don’t know? But like, maybe, just maybe, my fave look of Alex D. Turner is when he’s been like … Sleeping well, eating, dating someone for awhile. See:

But then… This summer happened. And we were blessed with T in the Park 2016. 

I haven’t recovered yet. Also, I think I might be biased towards this particular ‘era’ because I met him in it. And he was lovely and kind and pretended he wasn’t judging me and my gigantic eyes and my clear shortness of breath. 

Stage Persona:

Okay so this one was a little bit easier because I think the AM stage persona, while ridiculously intense at times…

(Like what the actual shit stop doing that please also peep @ Jamie Cook)

My favorite is probably Suck it and See.

…Is that even a persona? I think it was the most him of them all, if that makes any sense. Just enough arrogance and not as you know, hip gyrations. Don’t get me wrong, I love them/him. But something about this specific period of time for this band. They were just a band. They never needed a bell or a whistle, or their name on fire. And this entire era of their existence proves it. (Which I also think is why when they did have some bells and whistles and light their name on fire, it was cool because everyone knows they don’t really need it but they’re doing it anyway and that’s why they are the coolest rock band on earth.) Also idk something about his arms in those t-shirts… Anyway.

Album: This is the only one I can answer easily. Google isn’t letting me paste the image and I feel like you all know the cover anyway. But my favorite album of theirs, of anything he’s ever done, probably will ever do, will always and forever be Humbug. Forever. Until my death. Actually, when I die, take my vinyl and put it next to me. I don’t want to be without it in whatever afterlife I wind up in.

Thank you for this. Also, feel free to discuss any of these with me at any point in time. I’m more than willing to intentionally look for gifs and pictures of ADT in my spare time. I always want to talk about this. So.

(None of these gifs are mine!)



I was tagged by crownless-crow  (and some others but i don’t remember who, i’m sorry i suck) thank you <3

This was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done because I have thousands (i wish i was kidding) of pictures of soo on my computer and I love them all. So yeah, these are some of my all time favorite pictures.

I think pretty much everyone has done this already, but anyway I’m tagging chipsoo, dyo-alone, godkyungsoo, vitunkpoppi, wetjongin, soowritersoofection , takeachansoo, wuyisu and anyone else who sees this and wants to do this. 

you are in love

this is based off of my favorite song off of 1989 i hope yall enjoy :)

you and calum were completely in love and everyone knew.  all your friends, family and fans knew that calum was madly in love with you and you with him.  your love is like the elephant in every room, its there and everyone can see it, feel it, and hear it.  when you were out and around people they would gawk at the way calum looked so deeply into your eyes, and cared about every word that came out of your mouth.  the real love though, would be when you and calum were alone.  it was the little glances snuck at each other, and small talk and coffee at midnight that proved you two were infatuated with each other.  one touch was all you needed as proof that you and calum had this love that no one would ever come between.  the scent of burnt toast and calums sweatshirt was the fragrance of home.  the look that calum gives you when you laugh really loud, is the look of adoration.  the comfort of the words “youre my best friend” was evidence you were in love.  with him all your ghosts disappeared and everything was alright.  and he would have a favorite picture, probably the one luke sneakily took of you two snuggled up by the beach, and it would melt his heart every time he would click his phone on to look at it.  when you were with him it all made sense.  every love song you ever listened too and every time you watched the notebook when you were little, it all clicked in your mind when you were with calum.  every little thing was proof of how fond you were of one another, and you wouldn’t want it any other way.  your love was everywhere. you could hear it in the silence. you could feel it on the way home.  you could see it with the lights out.

also sorry this is probably really bad but ive been listening to this song like crazy and realized how beautiful the love described in it really is.  so i was inspired to write this.  i hope you liked it and PLEASE request stuff it would make me really happy! have a great week!!
