It has been a while since I last made a fan video. But a few days ago, I finally could get my hands on “The Tudors” in HD. So I played around a little and the outcome was a video about Mary Tudor, a character sadly only vidded a few times (as far as I could see).
Please like, share and/or reblog, if you liked it. Thanks!
To my fellow period drama vidders: Please give her character more attention. I did not like her when I watched the show at first but the older I get the more I sympathize with this poor woman and with how much dignity she carried herself through that chaos.
Since it was fanfiction writers’ appreciation day very recently, I feel like contributing to this in a different way, and aim my appreciation to a very particular group of writers. Now, keep in mind that I am in no way belittling anyone and that I support every single writer who works hard on this website. These are just thoughts I’ve had for a long time, and even though it has been talked about plenty of times before, I still feel the need to express my feelings when it comes to this topic in particular, which is heavily related to the writers’ community of tumblr in the kpop fandom. Not gonna lie, this is something I feel kinda salty about and it might get a bit long, so please bear with me :D
Clarke sputters an indignant laugh as he takes her elbow and steers her away from the doors. “You won’t let me out of the palace and you’re calling me a difficult person? You,” she fumes, “are insufferable.”
Bellamy merely grins. “Now that’s no way to talk to your husband.”
Clarke forces herself to stalk away before she can give into the urge to throw her glass of wine at him. She doesn’t know why she bothers, though. Somehow, none of their guests seem to notice the clear antagonism between the king and queen, or maybe they just don’t care. And why should they? The two of them are just husband and wife.
They’re not actually expected to like each other.
AU. Clarke marries Bellamy for a political alliance.
WC: 34k. Rated M. A/N: i promised i would write this if bob morley won the alpha male madness 2017 poll, and he did!! so here we are. Now, this is technically a prequel to my fic How You Stay Alive, but you can read it as an independent, historical arranged marriage AU if you so choose. A huge thanks to @readymachine and @wellamyblake for beta’ing; they spent so much time on this and truly saved my ass. so without further ado, i hope yall enjoy! :)
So… here’s a little idea I’ve been toying with lately. As you guys already know, my computer got infected and hacked due to downloading some CC that was behind Ad.fly links. I lost my Netflix account to hackers and seriously risked losing my PayPal account, too. Needless to say, I won’t be touching an Ad.fly link (or other similar service) with a 10-foot pole from now on.
However, here’s the thing: I don’t know about you, but I have a feeling that finding cc that is not hidden behind a paywall or an Ad.fly link lately is becoming harder and harder.
And this is why I’d like to start an “Ad-free Creators United” project, a database/cc finds blog to make it easier for everyone to find creations that are NOT hidden behind an Ad.fly or Patreon link. To do this, however, I’ll need the help of a few fellow simmers, aka… YOU!
What are you looking for? TS2, TS3 and TS4 players who are willing to help me hunt down FREE custom content for sims games and help me keep the cc finds blog updated.
What does “free” content mean? Any cc creation that is NOT hidden behind an Ad.fly, Shorte.st or Patreon link.
Will this be something like Paysites Must Be Destroyed? Nope. The blog will be solely dedicated to promoting creations that are shared for free (with no Ad.fly or Patreon links) by their original creators. Basically, it’ll be just a cc finds blog for free creations. No re-uploading of pay content.
How do I participate? Send me an ask or a message if you’re willing to help me with the finds blog. Please, only send me your message if you’re ACTUALLY willing to work on this. If you don’t have enough time and/or are unsure on whether you can work on the blog itself, you are encouraged to reblog this post and spread the word around.
Fine, I want to take part to this. How many people do you need? For now, I’ll need:
2 persons to take care of TS2 cc finds;
1 person to take care of TS3 cc finds (I’ll be the other person :D);
2 persons to take care of TS4 cc finds;
Last but not least…
Are you a creator who doesn’t use Ad.fly? Get your name added to the database! If you’re a creator and you’re sharing your creations for free, please reblog this post and fill in the following form:
Creator name: [your name]
Blog url: [the blog where you share your sims creations]
Games you create for: [a list of the sims game/s you create cc for]
you create: [CAS, furniture, objects, retextures, mods, traits,
retextures, recolors, mesh conversions, new meshes? List anything you
usually create for here]

I sat down with a homeless guy as I was leaving a supermarket in London. I ended up spending 3 hours hanging out with him. He had the brightest smile and a great outlook on life. I will never forget something that he told me, “I want to get the email of every single person who has helped me in my life, so that one day I can send them a picture of the bead that I put in one of my dreads for them, so that I can always carry them with me everywhere I go.”
Yet another sale! All weekend long starting now my entire site is 20% off when you use code “GIMME20” when you check out. While supplies last! Getting ride of some of these designs so I can bring in newbies! Tell a friend 😘
I’ve been rewatching Rick and Morty from S2 onward, and holy shit, I just realized something important about Rick
At the end of S3E1–the famous Szechuan sauce scene–Rick talks about becoming head of the family. As seen in S2E1, Rick is never uncertain, otherwise it would quite literally split time in half. He always has control, the upper hand, and nothing surprises him. Shit, he TURNED HIMSELF IN, MADE HIS FAMILY HATE HIM, TOPPLED AN ENTIRE GOVERNMENT, AND RESCUED HIS GRANDCHILDREN all so he could kick Jerry out and become the head of the household again (aka have Beth continue to let Rick take Morty on adventures). He owned all that shit even when his family and we, the audience, thought he had absolutely no control over any of the situations he faced.
*SPOILERS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE YET TO SEE THE S3 FINALE*
Now, let’s look at S3E10. Rick has no control over his family anymore. His family is back to, in a sense, hating him, and it wasn’t a part of his plan. It wasn’t HIS doing.
Jerry has always hated Rick, but now that Beth is on his side, Jerry has an advantage.
Beth distrusts her father for her safety, her choice to get back with Jerry (clone or not), and due to her abandonment issues.
Morty is, now more than ever, tougher and skeptical of everything Rick says or does, and Summer is right on Morty’s heels.
Whatever hold, whatever CONTROL Rick had on his family before is now gone with the wind. Rick HATES that. He HATES that Beth got back with Jerry; he HATES that his family is no longer willing to blindly follow his direction. Rick DOES NOT DO WELL WITHOUT CONTROL. Shit, he’s the smartest man in the universe, yet the “irrational attachment” he has on his family, particularly Morty, was the only thing he (potentially) cherished.
Rick’s facial expression at the end of this season proves that he’s angry and doesn’t know what to do about his forcefully relinquished control. He knows his family is acting out of emotion–which is basically anti-logic in Rick’s eyes–and he’s FURIOUS about it because there’s no reasoning with them anymore. He has absolutely no idea how to deal with it, and that irks him to no end.
What worries me the most is, now that he’s essentially lost his family, what will he do?? How will he go on adventures without Morty?? How will Beth let him get away with all the shit he does?? What, and who, is going to govern his actions, i.e. who is going to give him a reason to live?? He might be a selfish bastard most of the time, but you can’t tell me the man doesn’t let his feelings take the reigns from time to time.
It’s been implied time and again that Rick is too smart for his own good. That’s why he’s a raging alcoholic that has attempted suicide before. However, his family kept him relatively grounded. That’s why he stays on Earth, he helps his grandkids, and refrains from killing himself: they were a constant in his life that, in a sense, gave him purpose. They were something he had 100% control over because he knows his family like the back of his hand. Now, that comfort is gone.
In a way, Rick lost his family. Rick lost his beloved control over the Smiths. The smartest man in the universe with nothing to lose has to be the most dangerous weapon in all the cosmos.

For those who don’t know, last year, my friend made a book with about 100 pages that consisted of fan letters and fan art dedicated to the boys. Shocking enough, we didn’t expect SO MANY people to participate in our small project. It made us extremely happy to receive so many letters filled with heartfelt words to be delivered to Bangtan. Because of this, we decided to create another fan book so more can participate! And yes, our last book was safely delivered to BIGHIT.
We just care about sharing the love from international ARMYS, so we’re continuing to make this project free and decided to cover the expenses ourselves knowing not everyone has money. All we need is your support, so please join! Please share! Thank you so much for loving and supporting Bangtan. ♥
