one of my favorite simon headcanons is his lil pudgy belly, like we know that at the beginning of the school year he’s all skinny and drawn out but a year or two after watford, baz has been taking damn good care of his boy, and you can’t eat all those scones without a price. and maybe he’s a lil self conscious bc come on, baz is built af, that’s not even a question, and baz will just poke him in his squishy tummy and kiss it and tell him how beautiful he is and how stupid it is to think that a few extra pounds could make him any less beautiful. simon will blush because yeah, maybe he’s gained a few pounds (or a lot of pounds) and maybe he’s not as fit as he could be and maybe he doesn’t look like a cover model and maybe has a muffin top when he wears skinny jeans and in tight t-shirts u can see his lil tummy pooch but baz still loves him and that’s what counts, right? jeez I just have so many feelings

Deck interview for my Santa Fe deck I AM SO EXCITED!!!!
1) What is your most important characteristic: Wheel of Fortune. THIS DECK!!! Yes!!! The beings are gently ushering along lightning bolts, or courses of action. This Wheel of Fortune guides fluidly.
2) Strengths: 6 of Lightning. This person is shooing away a spirit of anxiety. GOOD! A common symbol in this deck is the curved rainbow, suggesting that it is within the viewer’s power to do with this as they will. So that little spirit of anxiety is up to me to deal with, though the deck’s strength is in assisting me with that. 3) Limits: Knight of Water. This is the spirit of river; he has power over/through rivers. Which implies fluidity, obviously, but also boundaries.
4) Teach me: 8 of Lightning. I love this card!! The being seems trapped inside the circle by the bolts of lightning, but she has wings! If she would only open her eyes, she could fly away!
5) Collaborate: Emperor. This is one of the most powerful cards in the deck. The Emperor is Father Sky, all of the stars and planets and constellations lay within him. I think that I can best collaborate with this deck by seeing how it connects to other things, how it’s part of a bigger picture.
6) Ask me: Ace of Lightning. As stated above, the curved rainbow suggests that the viewer must reach out to interact with the card. So I’m being asked to grasp the energy and direction of this Ace.
7) I teach you: 8 of Buffalo. I LOVE THIS DECK SO MUCH!! This is the overhillness card of the deck. So I teach it growth and the transformation through accomplishment.
8) Enjoy: 6 of Water. One of the most collaborative cards in the whole deck. Two figures are aligned, working together. Again, the rainbow invites me to join in.
9) Potential outcome: 9 of Rainbows. This figure is on a journey and seems to have gotten lost or taken a break as she tries to figure out how much she can handle. Before her feet is a small path - there is a way for her to keep it all together. Perhaps this deck will show me the way?
I’m a little surprised there are so many Lightning cards, but maybe it’s just trying to make up for lost time since I had wanted this deck for so long!
Many moons ago (well, 2013) a craft brewery in leafy Berkshire, England, named Siren Craft Brew came up with the idea of brewing a series of beers loosely related to the colours of the rainbow, and invited six of their favourite UK breweries to join in. People enjoyed this Rainbow Project. And so, the following year they paired each of the UK breweries with a European counterpart for the collaborative triumph that was the European Rainbow Project 2014.
This year saw the experiment reach across the pond, and the Transatlantic Rainbow Project 2015 was born. A killer list of breweries got involved, some old friends, others new to each others company, colours were drawn, and the brainstorming began. The team-ups went exactly like this;
Red - Magic Rock Brewing / Cigar City Brewing
Orange - Buxton Brewery / Arizona Wilderness
Yellow - Partizan Brewing / Prairie Artisan Ales
Green - Hawkshead Brewery / Crooked Stave
blue - Siren Craft Brew / Surly Brewing Co
Indigo - Beavertown / Dogfish Head
Violet - Wild Beer Co / Firestone Walker
With a brewery line up like that and creative juices given pretty much free rein, the brewers can interpret the colours as literally or abstractly as they like, we were always gonna be in for a wild ride. The public agreed, four hugely successful launch events down the length of England, and a crazy, bloody, massacre for the few boxes released online followed. Above are the contents of one of those wondrous boxes (and don’t worry, I escaped with nowt but bite marks and scratches). Seven beers, fourteen breweries, all the awesome.
I’ll be covering the individual beers in more depth over the next three posts, two or three at a time. Super fun times await, y’all. Don’t go anywhere!
