I had a question about your book. For starters, I will definitely buy it when it comes out, I like your writing style and all the excerpts and I appreciate the effort you've put in incorporating diversity in an organic way. I just wanted to know if there are characters that are not hot or just plain but obsessing over their looks. I read a lot of YA/NA fantasy and different shapes, sizes, and of physical flaws has been one of the less included aspects of diversity in my opinion.

Hi! Thanks so very much! I really can’t wait to share it with you. I’m at a hurry-up-and-wait stage in the process, but I’ll be sure to update whenever something new happens!  

This is such a great question, too! And the answer is yes! Having characters of different body types and kinds of beauty has been important to me for a long time, in part because of my own journey with self-acceptance and growing up. There are beautiful characters (it is a Snow White retelling, after all, so she is still the fairest of them all), but not everyone is the hottest person on the face of the planet. 

I emphasize the importance of perspective, too, in judging beauty. My protagonist, Pomona, is not considered beautiful by people in her home country, but when she eventually goes to new places, she learns that different groups of people value different traits. Later in the series, I have a character with the ability to be incredibly beautiful if they choose to, but they don’t, preferring their original looks instead. One character loses their beauty and has to grapple with that while also accomplishing tremendous things–proving to them that beauty is not all in the world. I have fat characters, skinny characters, “average” characters, and their body types are not tied to their morality (a pet peeve of mine). Beautiful characters are both good and evil; “plain” or “ugly” characters, too. Exploring this hasn’t always been an easy process because it’s super personal to me, but I hope that I’m able to say something meaningful in my books and deconstruct this notion of “the most beautiful creature ever seen.”

do you get exhausted with the gal gadot fans who either won't listen or don't care on the matter? i'm past the point of exasperation.

I’m beyond exhausted but I’ve given up. Even if people did realize she’s horrible it wouldn’t change anything. What’s the point. And a lot of the people defending her don’t know shit about the israel/palestine conflict. I’ve realized that people don’t care about arabs. As a saudi muslim girl it’s just impossible for me to like her

Fuck Marry Kill: James Potter, Jake Peralta, Andy Samberg

Why would you ask me this unless you wanted me to suffer?

JOKE’S ON YOU. As much as I’d love to fuck AND marry all three of these fine men - here’s the thing. Jake Peralta and James Potter are THE SAME. Jake Peralta and Andy Samberg are THE SAME. So no matter who I choose, I’m fucking ALL of them. I’m marrying ALL of them. And you would have me kill my three husbands.

Really the answer is I wouldn’t fuck, marry or kill any of them. As a hardcore Jily shipper I would never want to touch James Potter for he belongs to and with Lily Evans, who is my fictional heroine. Why would I mess with that pairing? Did you consider this? Evidently not. Same goes for Jake/Amy and Andy Samberg/Joanna Newsom. He is happily married, thank you very much.

I never get easy FMKs like Remus, Sirius and Peter. I get this shit.

the real questions: does kastiel drop in on terrasen ever and how does the fam react if he does

*THIS WONT NECESSARILY HAPPEN IN MY FIC*

but omg, you cannot even believe how ready seraphine’s family are to meet kastiel. their reactions wont be over the top at all. they know how much kastiel means to seraphine so they’re not going to go over board.

  • there would be a grand dinner and kastiel would be coming for the first time
  • lysandra would be turning into a bird with rowan and they’d literally watch him like a hawk, what he’s wearing, what his escort looks like, how many weapons did he bring, until he got to the court
  • gavriel would turn into a lion and sit at the front door, his tail swishing, waiting for kastiel to come—there may be blood in his mouth from accidentally forgetting to clean up after his meal
  • fenrys and connall would be in their wolf forms sitting on either side of seraphine at the dinner table just waiting for something to happen
  • lorcan would have dirt and blood all over him from working out hard
  • elide (the only one properly dressed, but you know not to mess with her) is chanting something into the jug of drinks everyone was to drink
  • manon would be in the corner drinking blood, her iron teeth and claws out
  • dorian would have a book in one hand, and a ball of pure magic swirling in the other  
  • aelin, well, let’s just say you don’t want to know what the fire breathing bitch queen is doing while kastiel is on his way to have dinner with them
  • and chaol’s just watching this go down like does any of you high fae realise how much of a circus we look like with all these animals and barbarians

so yea, not going over board at all.

I'd love to hear you sing! And can we hear about the MBAV au? And you're right about Benny's hair, I've been sitting here for an hour attempting to do it and aaaaaaaaa

PPFPFT I’ve gotten a lot of positive response so I guess I. Will post that tomorrow hhGHH

Omg yeah seriously;; Benny’s hair is impossible I don’t know how it DEFIES LOGIC??

Anyway

NSKDBBJDDB SURE I would love to talk about it!!

So uhh it’s called the Grim Reaper AU? It’s pretty obvious where this is going but allow me to further enlighten you

But yeah get ready for one helluva ride this is SUPER SUPER LONG I’M SORRY it’s like 3k words (the length of a good oneshot holy shit SHIMA WHY) but hey I have been developing this AU for three years now sO
Okay here we go

It all starts out when Benny and Ethan are on their way to school and Benny notices they’re being followed by this strange girl dressed in black—but for some reason nobody else is able to see her except for Benny. After school he corners her alone and starts questioning her (he also kinda threatens her a little bit;; tells her to stay away from Ethan since he’s an overprotective cupcake). She reveals that she’s a Grim Reaper and her job is to, well. Bring lives to an end as they’re written down in her book. Basically everyone is fated to die at a certain time in their lives, and Grim Reapers are the ones to carry their souls over to the other side. And after a bit more goading she admits that yes, Ethan is fated to die in two days’ time and she’s been assigned to carry his soul over.

Rest is under the cut to save yourselves from endless scrolling whoops

The terrorist is white, he's played by Taylor Kitch.

I know the main bad guy™ is a white guy but that movie will have side characters who are arab terrorists. The trailer literally shows coding in arabic. And the terrorists headquarters or whatever seems to be in the Middle East. That’s still portraying arabs as terrorists. To be honest I don’t know much about this movie, I was just excited for it bc I used to be a fan of dylan o'brien, but I wasn’t happy at all with what I’ve seen.

anonymous asked:

I had a girl ask me out and it went well. When I tried planning for a second date she started acting weird and not answering me. Now she told me that she's still figuring her sexuality out and just "wanted to see what girls are like". I kinda feel bad and upset right now?

That sounds really upsetting :(. Although she should have told you she was questioning before she asked you out, she could also really be freaking out right now. It’s not an excuse to almost use you to figure out her sexuality, but girls who are questioning their sexuality or aren’t confident in their sexuality tend to get scared when something related to liking girls goes well, at least that was how it was for me when I was figuring things out. I’m not that confident in my sexuality rn (Mainly bc I’m not out, I know I’m bisexual, but I deal with a lot of internalized bi and homophobia) and I have definitely had experiences related to this where when I figure out I like a girl and she like me I get scared and flee. My advice is to tell this girl how your feeling and explain to her that you really enjoyed your time, but if she was questioning she really should have told you before the date. If she can’t take your feelings into consideration she isn’t ready to be going on dates anyway. 

Hi. I found a video on Youtube that a fan recorded of Gigi & Zayn leaving her apartment in June after the whole media frenzy about them breaking up and getting back together. In this video, you can clearly see Shareena (who is Zayn’s assistant, I think) instructing Gigi to rub Zayn’s arm. You can see Gigi look over to the side and then immediately start rubbing Zayn’s arm after she was told to. Here’s the video link, it’s around the 4 second mark: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pystip8AFNc

I already knew Zigi was fake, but this is simply hilarious & pathetic. 


Hello my Anon and thank you for your message; here is the video that you sent me:

You are absolutely right, in the beginning of the video we see ZiGi waiting in front of the lobby and taking instruction, while at 0.8 we clearly identify this person as Shareena Harnett, Zayn’s PA. This video is from June 10, and once again the instructions are given behind a glass door. A glass door, FFS! Didn’t they learn anything after Milan?

Let me remind you what happened in Milan on February 28, just as the “loved up couple” was seeing leaving their hotel (it was then that they went to Naples and Gigi was trying to convince people that they drove for hours and hours… apparently no one told her that there’s an airport near Milan and there’s another airport in Naples; nor did anyone told her that the “autostrada del sole” is one of the best motorways in Europe… but I digress).

They were behind glass doors too and they were getting their “marching orders”, on how to get out, how to hold hands, where to look and to head. If you notice, Zayn starts to get out and he is called back to be given instructions, and while “the loved up couple” is instruced on how to look, well… loved up, a security guard herds the fans outside. This security guard happened to be the same person who was working security for the Boys during OTRA. So, I have to gather that unless he has a twin brother, thhere must be a serious shortage in security guards that everyone has to use the same people…

I thought that after the Milan fiasco, they would know better as to pull the same trick twice (giving instructions behind glass doors). The video that you sent me (thank you! I hadn’t seen it from this angle) proves me wrong and shows that they cannot learn new tricks!

So here you have another proof of how easily the “loved up couples” are constructed; the problem starts when one of the two participants (Zayn, in this case) puts minimum to zero effort into the stunt! then the stunt cooordinator hsa to step in to make the stunt look more convincing…

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: Where did they disposed Seth's brainless body? Does Felix still take a bath in his bathtub after that Castor brain autopsy shenanigans? Where did they disposed Rudy's body? In the garage next to Leekie? What happened to Dr. Silva? Did he died in the explosion or did Rudy killed him or did he managed to escape? How did Rudy and Virginia escaped with so little damage when the blast seemed to be a huge one even affecting the tunnel that Sarah was in enough to make her passed out for a moment? What happened to the project with the Koreans? How does Mexico feels about the United States running a top secret science project in their country? Does the POTUS approves of Dr. Coady's experiment on civilians which includes sterilizing women? Does he/she approves of Project Castor itself when they took office? Does the director answer directly to POTUS? Does the POTUS know of the existence of Project Leda in Canada? How does the POTUS feels about having a corporate multinational Canadian company controlling Project LEDA, a once American military project? Why was Project Castor and Project Leda headed by British scientists who did their research in a British prison? Why didn't the United States gave the project to American scientists and let them conduct their own research at an American prison? Did the UK government knew of this experiments? How do they feel about the United States using British scientists and conducting research for an illegal military experiment at a British correctional facility? Is there a tension between the US and UK regarding this? Is there a tension between Canada and the United States regarding the Leda clones? Does the Canadian government even know about Project Leda? Does the Queen know about Project Leda's existence as she is the head of state? Does the Vatican know of DYAD's involvement with human cloning, if they do then what is the Pope's opinions on it since DYAD is allowed to have business interest in the Vatican City? Are the POTUS, Pope, Canadian government and the UK government Neolutionist too? How come no one is suspicious that there was no funeral for such a high profile scientist like Dr. Leekie? How come someone in his position did not have any bodyguards at all? How come Rachel did not have any bodyguards aside from Daniel and Paul who were a monitor? How come Delphine didn't have any bodyguards? Where was Delphine staying all this while? Was she given a luxury apartment like Rachel too? Were Topside really told that Rachel had passed away in a plane crash and did they think that Delphine made it happen since Ferdinand mentioned 'Delphine eliminating Rachel' in 3x10? Delphine mentioned Rachel as Topside's favorite pet why didn't they investigate this so called plane crash, why didn't they called NTSB? The jet most likely belonged to DYAD didn't Topside worry if there's a mechanical problem with all their jets that needs to be fixed or something? What is the repercussion of Alison signing the contract with DYAD? Since Neolution controls DYAD does this means Alison is secretly being monitored by Neolution? Are the police not investigating the mass murder of a crime family that controls a large portion of the city's drug trade? Doesn't the vice unit have any undercover officers working in the family that wants to know who did it? Whatever happened to the Obinger murder case, is it still being investigated by Angie? Or is it now considered unsolved and is handed over to Cold Case? If Beth 'died' in her own jurisdictions then why none of the police officers seemed to recognize her body? She was a detective shouldn't someone at the morgue knew her at least? Art mentioned the Feds were investigating the Proletheans for domestic terrorism, aren't the Feds now investigating the fire that burned down the Johanssen ranch? Was Aynsley's death just ruled out as a freak accident? Didn't any of the neighbors mentioned about her very public feud with Alison to the cops? Aren't immigration concerned about Amelia not leaving the country yet assuming she came to Canada on a visitors visa, OK her visa hasn't expired yet but aren't her friends back home concerned about not hearing any news from her? Whatever happened to her body? Whatever happened to Paul and Beth's condo? Has anyone cleaned up all the blood yet? Don't they have neighbors there that would notice their disappearances? What ever happened to officer Tom Bowman's murder case? Didn't the murder weapon had Felix's prints on it thanks to Paul so is Felix still a prime suspect? If Sarah scammed Cal and had his bank codes and passwords how come she's still clueless about how he made his money designing weapons and all? Has Cosima even completed her PhD yet? Do all of DYAD's employees know about the clones? None of them seemed to be bothered by all the clones popping up there. Do they all have an airtight confidentiality agreement clause signed beforehand because no one seemed to be selling their stories to the world? Are they afraid they'll get murdered if they tried to sell the story to Weekly World News or People's Magazine?
