So I’ve always been obsessed with @modmad ‘s art style and her comics, and to sorta congratulate her on her awesome kickstarter for TPOH, I wanted to draw her a little MagicStone! (Also I just wanted an excuse to draw Gladstone’s hair but woah woops it turned into this, great)
i am actually so so proud of sehun right now … his singing has obviously gotten so much better he’s in tune and he even has a little vibrato going on. that just shows how hard he works and how determination can really pay off i lov him
I wish I could put into words how much I adore joji and how proud I am of him for bein out here and makin an even bigger name for himself and creating such dope content and music while still being a genuinely lovely person but I don’t kno how to properly convey any emotion ever so i’ll just lay here and listen to the entirety of pink season for the millionth time while staring at my ceiling in awe
Ivar likes to sit by the edge of the water at night when everyone is
fast asleep and he can be alone – but is he really ?
This is completely random, I got sucked into a
maelstorm of Ivar imagines lately and I had this idea that I couldn’t
get out of my mind unless I wrote it down – now here you go, a
non-sexual Ivar imagine (I know, shocker) It didn’t turn out how i wanted it to but I’ll edit it later.
of Kattegat were wary of the youngest of Ragnar’s sons. The respect
they showed him was inducted by their fear or becoming the next
target of Ivar’s increasingly frequent mood swings. One could never
be too careful around him, for his apparent harmlessness was but an
illusion. It was common knowledge that he was the preferred son of
his mother, Queen Aslaug, whose influence extended as far as Ragnar’s
that she favored him because he was like her in many ways –
seemingly not a threat to anyone, possibly even considered helpless
and utterly incapable of being so much as a minor bother. Yet she
ruled over their lands with an iron grip and allowed Kattegat to
thrive beyond imagination. She proved them all wrong, showed them
that having power and having strength were two different things.
So I moved up to St. Louis into a pretty cool neighborhood where there are a million rainbow flags (literally) but there’s absolutely no trans pride flag anywhere and I’ve only been here 3 weeks and I put up the first one.
Hi Emily, I'm planning to move to England! :D any advice?
oh my goodness EXCELLENT NEWS, YES, COME TO OUR TINY ISLAND!!! IT IS VERY GREEN AND PRETTY AND WE HAVE CASTLES and some political issues AND MUFFINS
hmmmm well the advice would probably vary PRETTY WIDELY depending on where you’re from, but here is some VERY SERIOUS basic stuff:
your relationship with tea begins the moment your flight touches down. you will be repeatedly offered tea, the procurement of tea will frequently be prioritised by those around you, and discussions surrounding tea will occur ad nauseam. if you wish to blend in, I suggest you develop a taste for PG Tips. the less milk you have in it, the more respect you earn, but if you have no milk at all, that’s weird and will be a conversation topic. two sugars in it will get a raised eyebrow; any more and you will be discussing diabetes for the next half an hour. asking for a herbal tea will likely put your host into a state of either smugness or panic, depending on whether or not they still have that fancy berry blend they got six months ago on a health kick. if you don’t drink tea at all, you will confuse people. this may be your preference.
talk about the weather. in any scenario. at any moment. to fill a silence, remark on the weather.
try a cream tea, absolutely try a cream tea. scone, yes. jam, yes. cream, yes. in that order. do not believe anyone who tells you the cream should go under the jam. this is crucial.
the order of supermarkets from cheap to posh is Lidl, Asda, Tesco, Sainsburys, Waitrose, Marks & Spencer; unless your name is Moneybags McGee, don’t do your weekly shop at M&S. be seduced occasionally by their delicious cakes, but do not succumb to the temptation of their full range.
Halloween is not such a big deal here, especially outside of big cities, because people are too shy to put on costumes and prat about. if you love Halloween, you need to find a Halloweeny clique and fight for your right to party.
you will frequently be greeted by a question that sounds like “higheryawright?” this is, in fact, “hiya, are you alright?” you should under no circumstances reply to this question with how you are actually feeling. saying you are “good” may seem like you’re bragging. it’s best to go with “not too bad, not too bad”, along with a knowing look at your interrogator. they will give you this look in return, a wry smile, like you’re sharing a joke. this joke is that life is shit, but you say it’s not too bad, and you keep going at it.
if you put up two fingers with your palm facing inwards, towards yourself, like an American peace sign, that is swearing in the UK - like a slightly softer fuck-you than just flipping up your middle finger. I used to think all the American people I knew who threw up peace signs in photos with their palm inwards were trying to be really edgy and flip off the camera. if you want a UK peace sign, you need your palm facing out.
the weather. I’m serious. check the five-day forecast and you have conversation topics sorted for the week.
this was all a little tongue-in-cheek friend, THE UK IS A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE TBH we have big diverse open-minded cities and beautiful countryside. and it’s full of people, which makes it the usual human blend of terrible and stunningly beautiful and boring and awe-inspiring. it rains a lot, too.
if you want some more specific tips/answers, feel free to ask!! I’m here for being a resident Brit ;D <3
this is so random but i’m really so proud to be a BTS fan. i live in the US and seeing them here being successful makes me soooo proud. i really just love them and i’m so thankful they’re getting the recognition they deserve
