romantic twist

Ok guys, we need to talk about J.C.Leyedecker, and how its a fucking travesty that no one has made a film about him yet.

So Leyendecker was an illustrator during the 1910′s-1940′s. His work was absolutely gorgeous and highly ubiquitous at the time, and his llustrations for the Arrow shirt company created one of the most iconic images of male beauty of the early 20th century. But this icon came with a delicously romantic twist.

So this image of The Arrow Man was both incredibly macho and well built, but also ethereally pretty and dapper. But the model who the drawing was based on cropped up in A LOT of Leyendeckers work. In many he was engaged in casual social scenes with other men, in others he was shaving in the bathroom or getting dressed, broad shouldered, skin glistening, dark blond hair perfectly in place, jaw sharp as a fucking shovel, but with a slightly rounded chin. In one ad for war bonds he even appeared as the statue of liberty. This same man appeared in hundrereds of drawings, each with the same sharp care and attention to detail which makes looking at him almost feel voyeristic. 

So this mans image is EVERYWHERE during the early 20th century, and he is a fashion/lifestyle icon for men on par with the female gibson girl. He was the celebrated symbol of male strength, virility, and power. 

And man who modeled for Leyendecker’s iconic univerally adored macho man? That would be his lover, Charles Beach.  

so all this gorgeously homoerotic artwork defined the image of hyper macho masculinity during the interwar period. Leyendecker painted Beach onto the face of the world, that was his love letter. He basically immortalised the love of his life by making the whole world adore him as much as he did.

Leyendecker’s work would go on to influence the likes of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Norman Rockwell. After his death in 1951, when people figured out that the unmarried man he’d been drawing and living with for decades, right up until the time of his death, was actually his lover, Leyendecker’s name has sadly been pushed out of the history books in favour of more wholesome characters.

And that fucking sucks

I would like to request a full length movie, with all the jazz era glamour and steamy romance that this genius deserved. During a time when homosexual men where thought of as weak deviants, this man not only had the nerve to use his lover as the model for all his great works, but he made him into the STANDARD of what it was to be a man. 

J.C. Leyendecker and Charles Beach deserve your rememberance. 

Just for once I want a “buddy ______” movie about two guys going around being kickass or spying or solving mysteries or otherwise having adventures where the homoeroticism is deliberate and builds until they actually get together. For real. In a gay way. And it’s the b-plot the same way that the shoehorned-in straight romance is the b-plot in all the other movies about two guys on an adventure with vaguely homoerotic undertones, except not shoehorned in but instead as a natural progression of the story.

me: wants to look forward to j*lec bromance and cl*lec friendship
also me: knows the shippers will ruin everything for me :)


Yes I am one of the fans of Yuri on Ice that has moved on to killing stalking why cause it’s so romantically twisted. The only reason why I say “romantically” is just because of their sexual tension and their actions and I sadly ship them together but I understand that in the real world and I know shit like this happens that there is abusive relationships that end up like this and I don’t think it’s OK but when I read something like this it’s just so twisted and so my style in its oh my gooooood fuck ME UPPPP! But I don’t get it how people from Yuri on ice compare that anime to killing stalking because it’s two different things like yeah they’re both gay but the fuck? no killing stalking is about murder about realizing that someone made a huge mistake because of falling in love with somebody. Yuri on ice is happy and killing stalking it’s just twisted and horrible but you want to keep reading it because it’s just so thrilling and there’s so many different other mangas like this. If you don’t like the idea of killing stalking I understand the first two chapters that I read I got so freaked out I thought it was so scary and twisted and I thought how could someone write this and then I finished it completely through chapter 13 and I was so so so deep in the hole of killing stalking and I can’t get up at all so I’m basically YoonBum

The HPCC Valentine

We had such a great time with the Advent Calendar that we’re doing it all again, but this time with a romantic twist. It’s time for the HPCC Valentine!

What’s this?

Between the 11th and 14th February there will be daily postings of fic and art, all Valentine’s Day themed and from the HPCC fandom! 

How do I get involved? 

We’re looking for artists and writers who want to create an offering for our Valentine’s Day celebration. You’ll write or draw a fanwork, which can be anything you like, as long as it’s Valentine’s Day themed and uses HPCC characters. 
If you want to get involved, drop us an ask before midnight GMT on Wednesday 25th January. Tell us whether you want to submit a piece of art or a fanfic, and if you want to write a fic let us know if you’ll need a beta. After that… get creating! 
We are also looking for people to beta-read fics, so drop us an ask if that’s something you’d like to help with, and we’ll be in touch with more details after January 25th. 

But I’m not an artist or a writer…

We’re also looking for prompts! Send an ask with a Valentine’s Day themed idea, or a pairing you’d love to see, and we’ll pass them on to any artists or writers looking for inspiration.
And, of course, on the 11th February come back here ready to like, reblog, comment, and enjoy the fun! 

You haven’t answered all my questions… 

Feel free to drop us an ask or a message, and we’ll do our best to answer. Chances are other people are wondering the same thing. 

We hope to hear from you soon, and we’re looking forward to all the wonderful Valentine’s feels to come! <3

Brokeback Mountain (2005)

Director: Ang Lee

Cinematographer: Rodrigo Prieto

n1njago is bad at writing female characters, Japanese culture, cohesive story arcs, consistent character behavior, romantic relationships, plot twists and continuity

Nice to see that in the new year of 2017 there’s still people in the Naruto fandom salty as shit about the ending.

Don’t y'all get bored of bitching at people of the canon pairings? Aren’t your panties a little too twisted about romantic pairings for a shounen manga that focused mostly on friendship?

Blah. 😪

Y'all must have boring lives.

The Pacifist with More than Determination Ch.1

Pacifist with more than Determination

Kirara: And so the Undertale fandom came and swallowed me whole making me get inspired with determination. I promise I’ll work on the other stories. I swear I will once I get more inspiration and plan the chapters better because I edit too much. So this story has the same pacifist route adventure that many others have written about, but with a bit of a twist. A very romantic twist. So a couple facts about this story:

It’s Sans x Frisk. Before anyone takes the pedophilia card on me, Frisk is 16 when she falls underground and Sans stopped aging at 25. She will eventually catch up in aging for more adult situations.

There are going to be many other couples including Papyton, Alphyne, Asgore x Toriel, Chara x Asriel, etc.

Possible spoilers for those who don’t know the game well.

Disclaimer: Undertale belongs to Toby Fox. I only own the OCs that will come up in future chapters.

Chapter 1: Curiosity Kills the Cat


A wooden sign said beside the path leading up the mountain. Police tape was wrapped between two trees. It was intimidating enough to keep people away, but not enough to physically stop anyone. It didn’t stop the determined girl named Frisk from continuing her journey towards Mt. Ebott. Why was she doing this? Mt. Ebott is a place where children have been going missing and never returning, causing the authorities to forbid entrance into the mountain. Frisk just flipped her short dark brown hair and went around the taped trees, easily getting back in the rocky path she was traveling in the first place. Her small chocolate eyes looked back one last time before continuing forward. The mountain wasn’t very steep, thus easy to climb. It involved more walking and less climbing. Still, it was quite the long walk. Frisk was thankful she wore comfortable clothing for the trip. A large blue sweeter shirt with two purple stripes placed horizontally bellow her bust, blue shorts that reached above her knees, and a pair of worn brown boots. She gripped the handles of her navy blue backpack that held necessities and her most prized possessions. There was a bottle of water, a couple of sandwiches she made before departing, some clothes, an mp3 player with a pair of earbuds, a folder that contained her graduation diploma, and a worn out letter.  She stopped and grabbed a water bottle from the bag and drank a small amount of the clear liquid. She placed the bottle back in its previous place to save for later and began walking once again.

An hour had passed before Frisk saw what looked like a cave in the distance. It seemed like a good place to rest. She grabbed a sturdy stick from a nearby tree in case she needed to defend herself from any wild animals. She hoped that there weren’t any bears or wolves. Frisk entered the dark cavern slowly, but still tripping on a small rock hidden in the darkness. She fell face first on the ground earning a small scrape on her head that thankfully her bangs covered and on her left knee. Her stick left her hand and landed somewhere she did not see. Frisk searched around the dark cave floor trying to find her weapon, but to no avail. Why was the cave so dark? It was only early afternoon. The Sun is still shining brightly yet the cave was so dark. Not giving up on finding her only means of self-defense, Frisk continued forward on her knees to avoid tripping and to reach her stick that couldn’t have fallen so far out of reach. Suddenly her hand felt nothing. No ground whatsoever. Squinting, she saw the outline of a large hole on the ground. Her stick probably fell down there. She tried to see the bottom of the pit, but it was pitch black. Well, that stick is gone for good. She tried to look one last time at the gaping abyss and for a second she thought she saw a glimmer of yellow in the darkness. Curiosity got the best of her as she tried to take a closer look. Worst mistake of her life. The rocks that were supporting her weight gave out and she fell forward into the hole that claimed her very existence. Curiosity killed the cat as they say.

“Am I going to die?” Frisk thought as she continued to fall. It seemed as time went in slow motion for her and she closed her eyes. Was this what happened to the children that ventured here? Was this the way her life was going to end? She had so much to accomplish and has done so little in her short life. She could already see her insignificant life flashing by.

“Hey Frisk, why do you have such a weird name?”

“You are so weird Frisk”

“Why do you say that?”

“She doesn’t look like a girl, her eyes are so small, and she’s ugly.”

“No wonder her family left her here.”

“Pay them no heed Frisk. You are a beautiful little girl.”

“I’m sorry we can’t pay for your ballet classes anymore”

“Do you like monsters Frisk?”

“You are such a nerd Frisk.”

“Honey, that dress doesn’t fit your figure at all. Try being less of a fat ass.”

“Happy birthday, Frisk. I got you an mp3 player with a lot of songs you might like.”

“We apologize, but it didn’t feel like we were raising a child.”

“You play the piano so well. Maybe you could teach me a little.”


“Come on up and pick your diploma. Congratulations”

“To graduate at the age of sixteen is quite the accomplishment.”

“This letter was stored until you grew up Frisk.”

“Whatever your decision is, I will support you.”

“I’m sorry, Hana”


Frisk opened her eyes. It was dark, but she could see light shining from above her.

“I did fall, didn’t I?” She muttered to herself.

She found the strength to sit up and realize she was laying on a patch of yellow flowers. Buttercups to be more specific. Was this the yellow light she saw from the cave? She wasn’t sure. The light she saw seemed brighter.

Frisk struggled to stand up, surprised she wasn’t as injured as she expected. Or dead. Those were some strong flowers. She looked around her dimly lit surroundings. There were some old pillars leading to some sort of doorway. And on the ground was…her STICK. Frisk quickly grabbed it and glared at it as if blaming it for all her troubles. She checked her bag to see if her items were intact. They appeared to be fine, thankfully, just a little scattered. She arranged the items back in order and began walking. Forward was the only way to go if she wanted to find her way out. She went through the doorway and came face to face with a lone yellow flower in a patch of grass. A smiling yellow flower.

“Howdy,” it spoke. “I’m Flowey. Flowey the flower.”

And that’s chapter one out of a whole lot of chapters. I don’t know how long, but long. Hope you enjoyed it.

What percent certain are you of Reylo being canon?

For about a handful of reasons, if I had to be objective, am 50% sure it’s happening if only because Rian is a bit of an unpredictable director and we don’t quite have enough information yet. On a PERSONAL level, judging by story patterns alone and the impression I came very strongly away with after seeing the film (i.e. I’d apparently written something almost identical to the interrogation scene, what, like 10 years ago? that I found in an old file, and that was definitely meant as twisted romantic overtures), I personally think it’s 90%.

So pragmatically I say it’s a coin flip at 50%, but personally for various reasons I feel it’s 90%. I’m sorry if that’s confusing. xD It’s like reality versus your hunch? That’s what these numbers are. Thanks for the question, anon!!

Never was much of a romantic,
I could never take the intimacy.
And I know I did damage,
‘Cause the look in your eyes is killing me.
I guess you’ve got another advantage,
'Cause you can blame me for everything.
And I don’t know how I'mma manage,
If one day you just up and leave.
—  “Runaway” by Kanye West

Like, idk if you've gotten this before but I've been listening to Death of a Bachelor by patd and the first verse reminds me of genji, with the second one reminding me of Mccree. Sorry if you've gotten that before I just wanted to share that.

Oh man, this song is so bittersweet for those two. 
Like the first verse is so Genji during his early days with Overwatch. Feeling lost and not really knowing who he even is anymore.

And I imagine McCree in the second verse is talking about Reyes, either in that mentor-pupil relationship they had or with a more romantic twist even.

Just, I have feelings. Lots of them.
