Jungkook’s a snitch. He’s not proud of it, but he’s not ashamed of it either. It was convenient and easy to get information for coppers Taehyung and Seokjin. Easy money.

At least, that’s what he thought until he gets pulled into the seedy underworld of vaudeville speakeasies by the one and only man-eater with the angelic voice, Park Jimin.

Author’s Note: This one was a lot of fun to write! What can I say, I love the mind games. As always feedback is welcome! I LOOOVE hearing from you all. I’m genuinely addicted to writing this stuff right now. I have abandoned all other hobbies entirely. My book group has forgotten about me, I haven’t touched a piano in weeks, I haven’t taken my dog anywhere fun in days and he threw coconut shavings all over my living room floor in protest. That is how much I love you.  So enjoy while I go get the vacuum! Am I the only dog person on tumblr?


Damn. This is disorienting. I’ve played this all wrong. You thought seeing the mistrust and anger play across Steve Rogers’ face as his best friend pulled away from you. Others saw Bucky Barnes as Captain America’s greatest weakness but you knew better. Steve watched Bucky like a hawk, and all of the hero’s self-righteous inhibitions fell away when it came to his best friend. That made him all the more dangerous. And he had just caught you red handed trying to manipulate Bucky.

Shit. Your damsel in distress routine would come across thin and reaching now. New tactic, you thought shifting quickly back into the careful predator. Captain Rogers had entered glaring at you, immediately paused, and turning pointedly, gave his best friend a harsh look. A warning. You could swear you saw Bucky return it with equal ferocity before he looked at you with a gentler expression, and slipped out.

Alright, you want the villain, Captain, I’ll give it to you. I’ll let you have every dark thread you can get your hands on. Your best hope now was that honesty would catch him off guard. Your options were severely limited when Nat had followed him in, you knew she would see through anything less than the truth. You didn’t think she would truly give you up to these strangers but then again they weren’t strangers to her. She had exposed so many of her secrets after the events in D.C. at this man’s command, you just couldn’t be sure. It had been unnerving to see her exposed like that. And here you were tied to a chair, watching her sharp green eyes watching you over an interrogation table. This was why you preferred anonymity when you worked. Natasha was a dangerous friend to have but an absolutely lethal enemy. You knew you had to take control fast.

INTERVIEW MAGAZINE – AMERICAN HUSTLE

Mert & Marcus explore the seedy underworld of the male gigolo in this erotic editorial for the latest issue of Interview Magazine. ‘American Hustle‘, styled by Karl Templer, stars an impressive cast comprised of Chad White, Brian Shimansky, Jamie Wise and Veit Couturier.

In a cyberpunk, dystopian future of 1992, there lives band of savages dwelling in the tunnels and sewers beneath the ruins of the old North Eastern coast. They roam in clans.

Eventually, they find discarded technology from the humans above. They learn, they adapt, they evolve. They unite as a people, but are still separated by clans, some at war with each other for decades as they build their underground utopia. Eventually the clans evolve into families, and they become the stars of the seedy underworld. This is the beginning of what is now known as the Orcish mafia.

Many past wars have been started over poorly chosen words in private, so once more the Orcs adapt. They push past the local methromancers as they head into the new designated, public meeting spot for the monthly Family Gathering – Denny’s. Orcs love grand slams.

Meanwhile, just down the street a building looms, golden arches illuminating the streets for all who are unfortunate enough to walk past. McDonald’s.

No one has been to a McDonald’s since 1987, and no one knows of anyone who has. Every day, from dawn to twilight, the sign flickers in the grime-covered window. Open. Despite receiving no apparent business, it always manages to stay open, always appearing bustling from the outside.

‘’I’M OBSESSED WIT MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO’’ by James Franco.

It was a very unusual project. I’d loved “My Own Private Idaho” when I was growing up. Before I even started acting, I used to watch it repeatedly: there was something about the emotion of it, its aesthetic, and the makeshift family that the characters create which spoke to my teenage self.

(…)

Gus hadn’t watched it since he had made the movie, and his style of making movies had changed in the intervening two decades. He had made a huge change in his aesthetic mid-career, having been influenced by minimalistic films, and his later films were characterized by minimal dialogue, fewer cuts, and very long takes. So, when we were watching those Idaho rushes again after those two decades, the question became, “What if you had cut this movie now?” For instance, there is a scene early on where it is just Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix walking down the street, and we found ourselves wondering, “What if you just held on that shot, and you stay on River’s head, and then you continue with him for much longer? What would that give to our sense of his character?”

(…)

When Gus wrote this script it was a compilation of three previous scripts. One was a movie that was about street kids in Portland; one was a movie about two Hispanic kids looking for their parents who eventually go to Europe; and then one was mostly Shakespearean dialogue in a contemporary setting. This last was based on Orson Welles’s Chimes at Midnight, which was a compilation of all the Falstaff sections of the Henry IV plays.

(…)

The other thing that Gus did, and which I pushed to the extreme, is that he focused on the Poins character, in this case Mike Waters, played by River Phoenix. Ned Poins is one of Prince Hal’s sidekicks: he masterminds the double robbery of Falstaff in the comic Gad’s Hill scene, but other than that plot function his purpose in the play is to bring the detail of character into that seedy but exuberant underworld. Shakespeare created 1,222 characters, and none of them are incidental: all are fully individuated. It is very moving to think about a side character, one out of all of these Shakespearean characters, then being given the spotlight. This attention is made even more poignant by Phoenix’s incandescent performance. Whether he was revealing himself through the role or not is made moot by the fact that it is arguably his best performance and that he was dead two years later. The performance caught on film is now infinitely more valuable because it captured the best actor of his generation at the peak of his powers. By cutting together outtakes of the unused material of the film, I was able to give more emphasis to the essential beauty of Phoenix and his work. Phoenix in my remix film, “My Own Private River,” is singled out from all other actors and film performances for that matter—because it is presented in such an unflinching way—just as Van Sant singled out Poins in his original film.

(…)

Now the significance of “Idaho” has changed because River is gone, but you want him to just be there, you want him to keep going, you want to see what he can do, and you want to find all that is still alive and is still around that exists of him. Consequently, those moments that would immediately pull you out of a normal film, pull you into this film—at least they pulled me in—because River is walking around, he is alive again. What I mean is that you just want anything you can have of him. That sense of wanting time to stop goes back to the original, too: Henry IV is, among other things, a coming-of-age story. Prince Hal’s growing up is at once necessary and deeply poignant, and in many ways we want him to be able to remain a fun-loving, irresponsible kid with Falstaff forever. In a way, the length of the footage of the film I was able to cut, especially the longer version, serves to extend that moment indefinitely — since in an awful way River did grow up, and in another way he’s still in that happy hour before the end. Since I didn’t have all the economic burdens of the initial film, I was able to make a film with a much looser narrative. So whereas the original was driven by the need to tell a certain story, the film I made was driven just by River’s presence.

actual hot take: the gay experience is being masked by the Token Gay/Gay Couple far too often in popular media which posits that gay people surround themselves with straight friends, which is absolutely absurd. when a gay experience that applies more commonly to urban gay people (surrounding oneself with other gay people) is portrayed, it’s usually as the seedy underworld culture that A Respectable Gay would never associate themselves with

OK so i gots a Nevada HC. My first time articulating one so sorry if I’m all over the place and it sucks…I just hope this can cheer you up!
So the other day somebody said that Nevada would probably be into a good girl like straight edge and everything. So I totally agree with that! In my mind, he gets attracted to that type of girl because
A) She is a challenge and okay seriously latino guys love girls that are a challenge. Have you seen novelas?! He’d be the one after her I think. She definitely is not afraid to call him out on his shit and he loves that.
B) He’s not around that type of girl and it’s a nice change of pace from the usual seedy, underworld hoochies.
C) Like all Latino guys, they have strong women in their life like their moms, sisters, or aunties. And like all Latino guys, they are crazy attached to them and respect them a ton. Therefore, this girl reminds him of those women in his life that actually cares about. You know, the kind his mama always wanted him to find….

Now for the most important part…. the sex! Okay so I think Nevada would get hot knowing this girl is a virgin. Latino guys have that whole machismo thing going on and they have egos SO he would take pride knowing he’s the first. He wants this girl to always be thinking about him should she ever find herself in bed with another man.  Now Nevada knows he can’t do the usual routine with this girl, he wants it to be memorable after all. When they have sex, he gets to be somebody else. He can do things he hasn’t in a loooong time. I feel that he would be intense and passionate, but still gentle. He would gladly take it slow. He wants this to last as long as possible not just for her but for him too. It’s basically him doing everything to the girl and watching her react. He makes sure to always pause and connect with the girl again by staring intently at her. He’s got that lustful look of desire and she’s got that innocent, pure look that he has not seen….maybe ever. He kisses her passionately and then gets back to work on the rest of her body. I feel like it would cycle around like that.

Okay I’ll stop now because I’m not good at smut and I fear this mind end up turning into a fic lol and am not a writer! Um so yeah…that’s just my thought :P


YES THIS IS SO GOOD YES TO ALL OF THIS!!!!! Especially the sex part omg YESSSSSS THANK YOU

Full thoughts on Korra's blush?

Honestly? Without context, it’s really fucking gay.

Had I not known Korra and Asami’s sad but nonetheless hetero romantic history, that Nickelodeon is full of misogynists who so fear change that the weather daunts them, that “children show” means “no seedy homosexual underworld”, then I would have thought that Korra was seriously crushing on Asami. As soon as Asami drops a compliment, Korra suffers a dramatic shift in demeanor, demonstrated by her averting her gaze, fingering the edges of her hair, and blushing.

The whole scene fucks me up because Korra and Asami have dropped a lot of…weird signs all throughout Book 4 and even some of Book 3. Not counting the fact that Bryan Konietzko claimed that Korrasami was “totally a good way” (because he could have very well just been placating the fanbase, anyway), Korra and Asami spent a lot of time together before Book 4. Asami was the only one to be shown by Korra’s side out of the rest of Team Avatar during the denouement of Book 3, and Korra only wrote to Asami when she was in the Water Tribe. Of course, those are the bigger events. Certain dialogue (mostly “I want you to know I’m here for you. If you want to talk or anything”, “Are you sure you don’t want some company in the Southern Water Tribe? I’m happy to come with you”, “I can’t wait to see her”, and just Asami’s very eagerness in Korra’s presence comes to mind) could reinforce the existence of this relationship’s possible romantic status. But a lot of it was kind of one-sided; Asami always loved Korra in some way, shape, or form. Doesn’t have to be romantic. At the very least, she holds Korra in high regard. Book 3 was just confirmation, especially at the end.

Then in Book 4 we see Korra reciprocating. Of course, Korra has always helped Asami and Book 3 shows that Korra appreciates her presence when she mentions that she’s always wanted a “girl friend” (obviously not in the dating way which…infuriates me because I’m always thrown when I hear that term in the context of friendship) and when she fully cooperates with Asami when they get stuck in the desert. However, her actions in Book 4 raise flags; for example, as I mentioned earlier, the time when Korra replies to Asami—Asami only— as she recovers in the Water Tribe, claiming that she feels that Mako and Bolin wouldn’t understand, is suspect. Clearly, there is an escalation in what she feels for Asami, considering how she felt about her when they first met. Korra was envious of her in Book 1, neglectful in Book 2, and “girl friends” with her in Book 3. Korra only writing to Asami in Book 4 insinuates that a strong bond, one that is so different from the ones she shares with Mako and Bolin, lies between her and Asami. “I don’t think they’d understand” just cements the fact that what she has with Asami is distinct.

And now— now when Korra and Asami meet for the first time in three years, Asami drops such a simple compliment on her hair and Korra’s defenses sort of cave. She shies away and offers a compliment in return.

The events that happen later in the episode only continue to alarm me with just how suggestive their relationship is. When Korra and Asami talk about Hiroshi Sato and Asami lashes out, Korra does not raise her voice, but attempts to placate Asami. Compare this to all the times when Mako would question Korra and Korra would vehemently defend herself.

Moreover, when Asami lets slip the fact that Korra only replied to her and not Mako or Bolin, Mako blurts out “What’s going on with you two?” Already, I have to pause and catch my breath because this line is too familiar. More than once have I heard something like this being asked by a third party in regards to a love affair. And when he asks why Korra didn’t write to him or Bolin, Korra meekly says, “I don’t know”, thus not giving a definite answer to either of his questions. More importantly, the audience is left with a murky understanding of the nature of Korra’s relationship with Asami. We know it is different and it is intense, but there’s no real explanation as to why that is.

That’s not all. As was pointed out by three other users, Korra and Asami are heavily intune with each other in the reunion episode. Their body language works in uniformity, mere glances appear to convey whole messages, and they implicitly trust each other with decisions that might otherwise appear ridiculous to anyone else, as is demonstrated by Mako’s frequent “What are you doing”s and all around frustration with both women’s actions which, in the heat of the moment, are spontaneous and foreign to him. All this in the one episode when they meet again for the first time. After three years.

That can’t be an accident. In isolation, maybe these events would have blown right over my head. Even now, several doubts accompany my words. Maybe Korra just thought talking to another girl was easier than showing her weakness to the boys. Asami was always outrageously hospitable (for fuck’s sakes, she housed Mako’s family for three years); maybe her behaviour isn’t that out of the ordinary with Korra. Maybe Korra doesn’t take compliments with as much dignity as we think she should; after all, she has suffered from low self esteem since Book 1 and it continues to plague her to this day (in fact, it’s at its worst). The blush is a natural response because when you think lowly of yourself, receiving a compliment is always unexpected. You don’t know what to do with it. You become shy. Korra does just that by playing with her hair and looking away. It looks hella coy, but it might not be. But when I think of the overall progression of their relationship and how it has quickly intensified in only two weeks (between Book 2 and 3), I rightfully become suspicious.

Hell, even if all this wasn’t some elaborate display of romantic affection, it showcases one hell of a female friendship. It’s powerful, it’s enigmatic, and it’s frequently placed in front of the audience. It is impossible to ignore and I can appreciate that.

My full thoughts on Korra’s blush are this: they are Friends with Benefits. No doubt about it.

To celebrate this exciting news, SEGA Europe have launched the ‘Legends’ trailer.

Yakuza 0 Features
The Dragon’s Origins: What lies in a man’s past defines his future, and in this case, we learn a lot about what inspires Kiryu down the paths he takes in the rest of the Yakuza series. Plus, you don’t get to be called “Dragon” without being able to knock a few heads. Combat abilities can be hot-swapped during fights for some of the most intense battles in the Yakuza series to date.

Embrace the Mad Dog: For the first time in a numbered game, long-time NPC Goro Majima is now playable. With his own fighting style, abilities, and his penchant for turning sleaze into profit, stepping into the role of Yakuza’s most eccentric character will provide some eye-opening insight.

The Decadence of the 1980s in Japan: Cash rules everything in the world of Yakuza 0, and in the game, there are a million ways to spend, make, or take money. From cash spilling out of the pockets of gang members you fight to Telephone Clubs, Disco Halls, or even Pocket Circuit car races, there are tons of ways to be a well-to-do gangster.

Possession is 9/10ths…: Yakuza 0 will get a physical release! More details on the retail edition will come at a later date.

I Will Find You by Neeka (wip | 101,935 | NR)

“Stiles was away at college when the world went to shit. He was alone, afraid and so very, very confused. But more than anything, he was determined. He just had to get home. Had to find his dad, his pack. Had to make sure they were safe.”

When a rapid spreading virus breaks out, turning most of the population into mindless, undead killing machines, Stiles Stilinski has to fight his way back home. Because nothing, not even the freaking zombie apocalypse can stand between him and the people he loves.

In 2011 a virus wiped out 99% of the Earth’s population. Now, four hundred years later, all of the survivors live in Beacon Hills, the last city on earth ruled by the Hale regime. Although Beacon Hills is largely idyllic, people are routinely disappearing and everyone is suffering from bad dreams. Stiles Stilinski is a member of the Monicans, an underground rebel organization who fight against the Hale regimen. When Stiles is sent on a mission to kill the government’s leader, Chairman Derek Hale, he discovers that there are deeper secrets to be discovered, and conspiracies to be foiled.

Yakuza 0 Will Hit the Streets on January 24 2017!

Yakuza 0 will be releasing on PS4 digitally and physically in the west (yes both the Americas and Europe at the same time!) January 24 2017! Preorders are now open on both the PSN and in stores so you can reserve a copy today and make sure you get it on launch. If you like physical copies make sure you preorder.

From Sega:

It’s time to put on your best white suit and glitter like gold, because Yakuza 0 will be available in the Americas and Europe on January 24, and pre-orders for the origin story to SEGA’s long running gangster series begin today. Yakuza 0 will be released physically and digitally for $59.99 in the west (yes, that means physical copies for Europe too) for the PlayStation 4 system. (Reminder, even though it was released on PS3 as well in Japan, the game will come to the west ONLY on PlayStation 4.)

Although 1980s Japan appears to be a colorful wonderland on the surface, the bright lights and flashy clothes can only cover so much of the seedy Japanese underworld. It takes money, power, and respect to keep this alluring illusion running, and it just so happens that Yakuza 0’s two gangster protagonists are hungry for it all. Players will follow the genesis of Kazuma Kiryu, the rising Dragon of Dojima, and Goro Majima, before he’s known as the Mad Dog of Shimano, as they pursue the almighty Yen. The Japanese thug life isn’t all disco halls and phone clubs, because Kiryu and Majima will need to pass hellish trials and tribulations in order to be considered honorable Yakuza.

I want to be able to walk around the ambassador sections, and see the flora and fauna of all of the different races’ home planets. I want to shop at stores run by elcore and volus and I want to have hanar spout their religious beliefs at me and I want to be greeted by Avina when I walk by and I WANT TO WATCH THE FOURTEEN HOUR ELCOR PRODUCTION OF HAMLET and I want flying cars and I want seedy underworld and I want to do the shepard shuffle in Purgatory and I want to lose all my money playing quasar I want to live in the mass effect universe and where else would you want in that universe would you want to live other than the Citadel. Don’t answer that because you’ll be wrong.
