she was so great in this performance

Hello! What would Tracer, D.Va and Mercy be like with an S/O who can use magic? Thanks for running such a great blog!

Aww, thank you for the support! You’re too kind!

Tracer

  • The first time she sees you perform magic, her mind is blown
  • “What was that?! Do it again! Do it again do it again do it again do -”
  • You do it again
  • You wonder why she’s so surprised when she can literally manipulate the fabric of time
  • She asks you questions constantly
  • “Does it hurt when you do that? When did you start using magic? Is it a genetic thing? Could you teach me any?”
  • You would normally be annoyed, but it’s just endearing

D.Va

  • Her initial reaction is much like Tracer’s
  • “That was totally sick! How’d you do that!?”
  • She boasts to her fans about how cool you are during her next stream
  • “My s/o can use magic! Get on their level, scrubs!”
  • She’d find subtle ways to ask you to use your magic again, and respect your choice if you decline even though she’ll be bummed
  • Her curiosity doesn’t run very deep, she’s just impressed that you can use real magic

Mercy

  • She’s confused the first time you show her your magic, and doesn’t believe it’s real
  • Her caduceus staff is like magic, but it’s just advanced science at the end of the day
  • She’d most likely hit you with a ton of questions
  • Like, a lot of questions. Don’t expect peace any time soon
  • “Does this run in your family? What process do you go through to summon it? What is the extent of your skill?”
  • Don’t get her wrong, she’s impressed that you can do something like this, but she would sooner work to debunk it as hyper advanced science than accept that magic is real

BLACKPINK REACTION TO SEEING YOU FOR THE FIRST TIME DEBUTING ON STAGE

Jisoo:

So many idols have been talking about how they couldn’t wait for your debut stage, so when Jisoo got to see you perform she was left starstruck.

“Woah, they weren’t kidding, Y/N was great out there.”

Jennie:

She would get shy after seeing you on stage. She didn’t want to show that she was really fan girling inside.

“Oh, You were amazing out there, by the way I’m Jennie.”

Rosé:

She wouldn’t know what to do, she loved your debut stage so much and knew she was going to become your biggest fan.

Lisa:

She would fall in love with you and your music right away.

“Shut up Jisoo, I’m trying to listen to Y/N sing!”

“Poco a poco”

Former child prodigy Jyn Erso’s first year at Yavin School of Performing Arts would be going so much easier if she wasn’t stuck with violist Cassian Andor as a duet partner. She also wishes he’d stop being so distractingly handsome. That would be great.

I guess it’s hard concentrating on playing your own instrument when your ensemble partner is so damn good it actually makes him more attractive than he already was to begin with. In other words, #SexyViolaPlaying.

READ IT!

Viola Davis gives the single greatest performance of 2016 in ‘Fences’

There have been other great performances in film this year — Mahershala Ali in Moonlight, Molly Shannon in Other People , Annette Bening in 20th Century Women — but Davis’ is different. Watching Davis is watching a master craftsman build a cathedral without so much as breaking a sweat. She is unparalleled and reason enough to see Fences , no matter how uneven an adaptation it may be. 

Viola Davis will be remembered in history as a legend. We’re just fortunate enough to live to see her working at her peak. Read more

Audrey: I had so many good performances left in me

“…and in the center of it all: Isabelle Huppert. It has been a wonderful experience to work with Isabelle, she is so talented. I thank you, Isabelle, for everything you have given to this movie, for your talent, for your audacity, for your authenticity of performance. I think it was wonderful to work with you, you are wonderful, and I love you.” — Paul Verhoeven accepting the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture, Foreign Language for ELLE

This definitely qualifies as a career highlight for me! The song was composed by Rebecca Sugar, and an initial demo arrangement was made by Jeff Liu, which Estelle sang over. Estelle is one of my favorite modern R&B singers, so this was a daunting and yet enticing proposition to arrange.

Taking Jeff’s arrangement as a guideline, we really wanted to emphasize the euphoria of Garnet being reformed. Rebecca told us to capture the feeling of “there’s no way she could lose”. I also felt that the new Garnet design warranted a new Garnet bass sound (for those of you keeping score: where Pearl is piano, Garnet is represented by synthbass), so this was a great opportunity to showcase it. I also felt like the bridge needed a synth solo, so I went all out on this one!

Aivi did a fantastic job adding to this arrangement by making the string sections magical (especially at the end when the song turns dramatic) which were then beautifully performed by Jeff Ball. Everybody did such a great job with this song, and I’m extremely proud of the final result.

Thank you all for watching the season finale! Tune in tomorrow for Full Disclosure!

You know what I think is fascinating? About a month ago I was introduced to someone at an event through a mutual friend. She and I discussed books, television shows, and obviously Sherlock came up.

“I have to know… do you ship Johnlock?” she asked me, cautiously.

“OH yeah. Very much so.”

“Have you read ‘Performance in a Leading Role’?”

“Most definitely.”

“Isn’t that fanfic great??”

This went on longer than I ever would have guessed. But how amazing is it that two people who don’t know each other have already read the same novel (yes, it’s a novel) that was written for free by a stranger online and advertised by word of mouth only?

Think of all the people you walk past in the city, sit next to you on the bus, or go to your school that could have read the same stories you love.

So if you have a story to tell, share it. You never know who could be reading.

So I’m watching the ladies skate their short program in the Russian Figure Skating Championships today.

And I’m watching the adorable Evgenia Medvedeva skate her short program which was great by the way of course. (which you can watch the clip of her short program here on Youtube)

BUT WATCH THE END.

A fan gives her a gift after her performance before she skates to the kiss and cry booth. Evgenia takes it and is looking at it with love and amusement.

She goes back to her coach, turning the gift around, showing it to her in which her coach laughs. She then takes it as Evgenia gets off the ice and puts her guards on her blades.

She then holds the gift out to the camera showing it to the world like a proud mama.

AND LOOK.

IT’S YUURI AND VIKTOR!!! 

HAHAHAHA.

Thoughts on Yuri on Ice

I am writing this post because of an incident that happened recently. Last week, I wanted to share Yuzuru’s greatness and all to my friends and I introduced them to Yuzuru Hanyu. I practically forced them to watch his Sochi performances and they were of course very impressed because yuzuru is great. So they decided to look at the comments section and I was expecting to see the usual technical stuff and opinions on his skating technique but BOOM IT’S ALL YURI ON ICE. One particular friend got really confused and she was like why does everybody in the comments say he is yuri. I got really shocked and started scrolling through the defaced comments section and everything I see is about Yuri on Ice. 

Well, don’t get me wrong now. Let me say here that I AM A HARDCORE FAN OF YURI ON ICE. REALLY HARDCORE YOU HAVE NO IDEA the yaoi. I think I even have a tumblr post about it somewhere. Also, I do understand that it is inevitable to relate Yuri On Ice to Yuzuru Hanyu because, well, Yuzuru Hanyu is one of the most iconic sportsmen in figure skating. 

BUT I just hope that certain even more hardcore fans would not invade Yuzuru’s personal life. When I saw swarms of YOI fans commenting on Yuzuru’s Sochi performances about stuff like ‘YURI ON ICE!!!!!!!!!’ or ‘YURI IN REAL LIFE’ I was honestly quite annoyed.

^Here are just some YOI comments I saw at the top of the comments section. And look at the number of likes. An irrelevant comment about an anime is enough to garner >400 likes and the beauty of the performance is just thrown away. 

One particular comment I saw by a fan was saying “it’s not disrespectful in any way. We’re all meaning it a good way. So what’s exactly the problem?”.

THE PROBLEM LIES HERE:  Because of these irrelevant comments, the performance and Yuzuru’s skills are forgotten. Furthermore, this gives an extremely negative impression of Yuzuru Hanyu on other ice skating fans. I mean, there are many people out there who love Yuzuru for his talent and there are people who genuinely wish to find out more about his performances. I cannot imagine what they will think when they see comments squealing about an anime show instead of perhaps more sane opinions on solely the performance (e.g. technical aspects). 

And yes, I understand that most of the commenters are taking on an identity as an anime fan but do consider the perspectives of non-anime fans too - People who truly wish to appreciate Yuzuru Hanyu and the sport of figure skating. I do not care how you guys found out about Yuzuru and I think that it’s perfectly fine to be introduced to him via anime, but I am concerned about the continuous spamming under Yuzuru’s videos. 

^^ THIS COMMENT GOT ME RIGHT THERE. 

Remember, Yuzuru Hanyu is a real person. I hope people like him truly because of his ability and skills and not because he’s the so-called ‘yuuri katsuki in real life’.

P.S. I personally am a great fan of Yuri On Ice but I cannot stand fans who keep spamming irrelevant comments under Yuzuru’s videos. However, I do understand that not all YOI fans are like that though. I’ve seen a couple of users who are fans of Yuri on Ice and they have written utterly beautiful comments about Yuzuru and figure skating. As I mentioned earlier, it is perfectly fine to watch Yuzuru’s performances because of that anime and I’m really happy that more and more people are introduced to Yuzuru and his sport :) So here’s a shoutout to fans who genuinely appreciate Yuzuru and figure skating, regardless of how you came to know about him <3. 

OK SORRY FOR MY RANTING AND BYE

EW: That “Strike a pose” moment, with Kate then saying, “Dad, I think I want to be alone right now.”

Milo: Yeah. God, she was so good in that scene. Really great. We were in the hair and makeup trailer beforehand before the day started and she said, “I’m scared.” I said, “You’re scared?” She’s like, “Yeah.” I said, “Why are you scared?” She goes, “What if I mess up?” I said, “Oh, no, you’re not going to mess up.” I said, “It’s the best part of it being a set. We want you to mess up, and then you do it over again, then you mess up and you do it over again, and you get this perfectly imperfect performance.”

And I said, “Let’s do one pass where you’re mad at me. Let’s do one pass where you’re mad at mom and you want me to know that you’re mad at mom. Let’s do a pass where you’re mad at your brother. Let’s do a pass where you’re sad. Let’s do another version where you want to be happy, you’re trying to be happy, but you’re crushed and heartbroken.” And I said, “Now, this last one, put them all together and mix them all up.” And then at the end, I’m like, “Are you afraid now?” She’s like, “No.” And it was funny, I got messages from Dan in the editing room and he’s like, “Where did this performance come from?” [Laughs.] And I was like, “She was afraid, and we made her not afraid.”

—  Milo talking about working with Mackenzie

It’s not an exaggeration to say I think about this scene every day.

 I literally think about this lean, how he bends down to catch her eye, how he’s searching for something. Something to tell him he’s not crazy to assume that what he feels isn’t one sided. Or just to know that maybe she’s going to miss him as much as he’s going to miss her. Or maybe that he doesn’t want the night to end.

MPG and Kylie are so great here, the subtlety and nuance of their performance in this episode is just breathtaking to watch, and watching them work together is beyond.

Don’t fuck this up FOX, give me more of this show!

Joy Villa ‘gave no f*cks’ and wore a pro-Donald Trump dress to the Grammys

Singer Joy Villa is no stranger to controversial Grammy dresses, having previously worn an incredibly slight one made out of orange plastic fencing, but this year’s really dropped jaws, a red, white and blue number emblazoned with the words ‘TRUMP’ and ‘MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN’.

Myriad Trump protests were expected at the Grammys and indeed took place, with Katy Perry and Busta Rhymes both taking shots at him during their performances - so Villa’s dress choice was clearly in defiance of this narrative.

“Go big, or go home. You can either stand for what you believe or fall for what you don’t,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of herself in the dress.

“Above all make a choice for tolerance and love. Agree to disagree. See the person over the politics, carry yourself with dignity, always. Life is made to be lived, so go boldly and give no effs!”

Go big, or go home. You can either stand for what you believe or fall for what you don’t. Above all make a choice for tolerance and love. Agree to disagree. See the person over the politics, carry yourself with dignity, always. Life is made to be lived, so go boldly and give no effs! 😊❤️😘😱💋🏆⭐️💥✨ #love #peace #joyvillagrammys #joyvilla #maga #grammys2017 #style #supportamerica #

Villa was pulled up for having ‘feminist’ in her Twitter bio by liberals, given Trump’s prior remarks about women, while conservatives flocked to buy her music on iTunes - something she was keen to tweet about.

You walked through the room after another set, making your way to the bar. You stop for a few people who wanted to tell you how great you performed tonight but eventually you made it over to Cami. Once she turned to see you she grinned from ear to ear before pouring you a whiskey.

“Great set today.” Cami complimented as she slid over your drink.

“Thank you honey. How’s your night going?” You questioned, sipping your warm whiskey. You drank warm whiskey because it helped keep your voice loose when you were singing. As much as you’ve never liked whiskey it helps. You preferred a good red wine, however it always closed you throat so you tried to stay away from it completely, for fear of losing your voice.

“It’s good but Marcel was looking for you earlier.” She grunted before sliding someone a beer.

“That I was.” You heard Marcel’s smooth husky voice behind you say.

“What can I help you with Marcel?” You turned coming face to face with not only Marcel but also Niklaus. You rolled your eyes when he shot you a pantie melting smile.

“I need a spell.” Marcel whispered in a sickly sweet voice.

“You mean Niklaus needs a spell.” Gritting you teeth you got up and walked up to Niklaus.

“Niklaus darling if you want a spell, be a man and ask yourself.” You smirked up at him when his jaw clenched.

“Very well love. I need a spell.”

“I’ll think about it. For now would either of you gentle care to dance before my next set?” I grinned cheekily up at Niklaus who was a lot taller than you, even in heels. Marcel grabbed you hand, dragging you to the dance floor silently. You were dancing with Marcel until your next set, afterwards making you way to Niklaus and Marcel.

“Right I’ll do the spell but I’m going out with Cami, Rebekah and Hayley tonight so come see me tomorrow.” You smiled as Hayley and Rebekah made their way through the doors. You looked over at Klaus who was slowly making his way over to you.

“Where are you going?” Nik looked at Hayley and Rebekah as he spoke but you knew he was talking to you just as much.

“We’re going to the new club that was opened yesterday.” Cami spoke as she appeared behind Klaus.

“You’re going….clubbing?” His eyes were wide like he’d never heard something so stupid. You rolled your eyes before dragging Cami out, knowing Hayley and Bekah would follow.

You knew your group of friends was a little strange but that didn’t stop you all. One human, one witch, one original and one hybrid. Really it’s possibly the scariest group of female in the quarter. But that’s what was great about your group of friends. We never had to hide anything from each other.

Everyone was in a long que when you arrived but Bekah soon got us inside, compulsion can be handy sometimes. As you walked in you were shocked by the fact it was very different from any club near or in New Orleans. It was quite well lit for a club but the shocking aspect was the poles and cages around the room that contained half-dressed dancing females. You glanced over at Bekah who was nodding like it was good enough, Cami who had the same expression as you and Hayley who had a grin on her face.

“Jesus who owns this place?” Cami choked as she saw a guy getting lap dance.

“That would be me.” You heard a playful voice speak from behind you.

“KOL!?” Bekah and Hayley’s expression now matched yours and Cami’s.

“I may have watched Suicide Squad one too many times.” Kol voiced like it was the best excuse for why he opened what was basically a classy strip club. Cami looked at him with confusion which made me answer the unspoken question.

“It’s a DC film.” You supplied.

“Kol watched it three times in a week.” Rebekah added.

“I do not need to know what you do in your spare time.” You sighed before massaging your temples softly trying to sooth the head that was currently sneaking in.

“Hey Y/N you could totally be a great Harley Quinn to Nik’s Joker!” Kol cooed at you teasingly.

“I couldn’t agree more! Especially with that Jersey accent.” Bekah snorted sarcastically.

“I will give you a witchy migraine Rebekah. I’m not as sick as Harlequin and Nik is worse than the Joker.” You growled before storming off towards the bar, you stood at the bar thinking about the jokes everyone had thrown at you but you knew they were right. You were a lot like Niklaus and you could be just as sick as him sometimes. Cami always said it was deep rooted issues from my past but you always waved her off saying you were fine. You knew it was mainly the accent that made everyone joke about it though so you ignored them. Once you got the bartender attention you ordered a cocktail sipping the red liquid once it arrived.

When a song from the suicide squad soundtrack came on you literally face palmed the bar surface. You knew immediately it was Kol’s doing, you slammed your glass down and decided to dance anyway. As much as you hate the constant Harley Quinn jokes you loved the film and soundtrack. You saw the girls dancing so you joined them smiling as Hayley patted you back in a comforting way.

“I’m fucked up, I’m black and blue. I’m build for it, all the abuse.” You sang along as you danced with Bekah. After the song had ended I felt someone pat on my shoulder I turned to see Kol who was smirking.

“Puddin’s here and he says it’s urgent.” Kol joked but you knew who he meant. You rolled your eyes and followed Kol silently. Once you spotted Niklaus you noticed his face was not one of a happy Klaus.

“Wait before I leave. Say it?” Kol asked as we arrived in front of Niklaus who now looked highly confused.

“Which scene?” You snapped your teeth clenched as the words came out.

“The electrocution scene!” Kol grinned happily, he had the biggest crush on Harley Quinn which he always got teased about but he didn’t care.

“What are ya gonna do ya gonna kill me Mr.J?” You looked at Kol waiting for him to leave.

“Oh I’m not gonna kill ya…I’m just gonna hurt ya…Really…Really bad.” Kol smirked at you and waited for your response. You rolled your eyes but responded anyway.

“Ya think so? Well I can take it.” Your accent thick and once Kol preened at how he once again had gotten his own way he walked off. I turned back to Niklaus who was trying not to laugh but failing miserably.

“Did you just…Quote….H-Harley Quinn?” Nik gasped between laughter.

“Did you just admit to watching Suicide Squad?” You retaliated with a smirk gracing you face and he soon stopped laughing.

“Aww is Klausy embarrassed?” You mocked putting on your sickly sweet Harley Quinn voice.

“Shut up.” Klaus snapped before grabbing his drink from the table behind him.

“What do you need Klausy?” You teased as you took his drink downing in soundlessly.

“Would you mind posing for me again?”

“You took me away from my night out to ask for another painting session!?” You screamed throwing the glass against the wall.

“Yep.” Klaus smirked up at you from the couch as you stood up.

“Excuse me miss but I think I’m gonna have to ask you to lea-” A man yelled as he came in to the private room ranting.

SNAP!

“Sorry but am gonna have to insist ya shut up!” You screamed snapping his wrist back breaking it without a blink. You turned to Niklaus with a glare ignoring the guys screamed of pain.

“It’s so attractive when you go all psycho on someone.” Klaus grinned mischievously over at you.

In the blink of an eye you were on top of Klaus, hands in his hair tugging furiously as you both fought for dominance over the kiss you currently found yourself in. You don’t know how you ended up there but the screaming guy now forgotten as you ripped Klaus’s shirt open. Your hands made their way down his chest, nails digging in angrily as your hands made their way to his pants.

You hadn’t even realised your shirt was gone, his hands were tugging at your bra but he soon gave up and ripped it off. His hand massaged your breasts roughly as he took the left nipple in his mouth suckling and biting vigorously. You groaned loudly, your hands working open his pants Klaus had apparently thought you were going to slow so he flipped you over onto you front. He dropped his pants then proceeded to rip off your skirt. When he was done he lifted your ass up your face still crushed into the couch.

You screamed out as two of his fingers entered you with no warning. You soon recovered as his thrusts were hitting your special spot. You pushed back onto his fingers craving your realise but as soon as Klaus realised what you were doing he stopped and brought his hand down to your ass giving it a loud smack. You whined wiggling your ass at him, as if daring him to do it again. So head did, several times before kissing the red welts that now covered both ass cheeks.

“P-Please Klaus…” You whined your voice full of desperation.

“Not yet sweetheart. I want you to feel all of me when you cum.” He grunted as he gripped your hips dragging you closer to him. His hand slid from the bottom of you back to your shoulders, his touch sending shivers down your spine. He gripped your right shoulder as he thrust into you roughly making you gasp loudly, gripping the pillows at how full you felt.

“Oh god! Please Klausy..” You taunted your breathing uneven and full of need.

He started thrusting into you angrily, his breathing getting louder. His thrust gained an unhuman speed as you became a moaning mess. Your screams were loud and raw, you had never been with Klaus but you’d imagined the pleasure he could give you with a thousand years of experience. You were gripping the couch so tightly your nails had started cutting through the fabric that covered it.

“Shit, Y/N I’m close.” You heard him grunt his nails digging into your hips, no doubt drawing blood.

You nodded sobbing in pleasure as he started hitting you g-spot as if trying to force your orgasm out of you. You were a writhing mess as he hit your special spot with violent thrusts. You felt your stomach tighten as you orgasm neared its peak. His hand moved to grip your hair pulling you up so he could whisper dirty little things in your ear.

“Cum for me love.” He grunted as his seed started to fill you, his rough sexed out voice pushed you over the edge his arms now gripping your waist as he gave you one more thrust. After your powerful orgasm was over you collapsed into Klaus’s arms.

***

When you came too you knew three things. One, your virgina hurt. Two, you were in a soft bed and three, someone was laid next to you.

You rolled over to see Klaus and then images of what happened the night before came rushing back. You groaned before deciding to wake Klaus up.

“Niklaus why am I here?” You questioned as his eyes started opening.

“Because after I fucked you into next week you pasted out.” He smirked over at you as if he was proud about his achievement.

“There’s some juice on the side and I’ll have Sally bring you some food since you were most likely dehydrated.” Klaus added seriously pointing to the orange juice that was sat next to you. You shook you head but drank it anyway knowing he was right. After you finished the glass of juice Niklaus dragged you back down.

“You know that wasn’t a one off right?” Klaus narrowed his eyes as if trying to search yours for your thoughts.

“What so now I’m your new little fuck buddy?” You snorted your voice sarcastic and full of bitterness.

“No more like I want you to be my Queen.” He responded seriously, staring into your Y/E/C eyes.

You laid there silently thinking about how good that actually sounded but your thoughts were soon interrupted by and annoyingly smug voice.

“Or the Harley Quinn to his Joker!”

Fucking Kol! You thought as you buried your head into the pillow.

Happy birthday, Essie Davis! (30 Nov 1970) ♡

“She’s an original. She has certain qualities that other actresses don’t have, a kind of a mystery about her, a privacy that’s intriguing, and she only lets a little bit slip: she always holds something back so that you want to investigate further with her.” - John Bell

“She’s a real transformer. She is insanely charismatic as a performer, which can’t be manufactured.” - Cate Blanchett

“You know when you put something in front of Essie that you’re not going to get politeness, you’re going to get a lot of raw honesty. […] she’s completely in the moment, emotionally, of what she’s experiencing. She just sinks into life and embraces it and screams and yells and laughs in ways that are very honest.” - Justin Kurzel

“I want to have the great roles that move people profoundly. I want to have the choice and be given the opportunity to play those roles and, unfortunately, fame plays a huge part in that. I’m incredibly ambitious but I feel I’ve got a fantastic career … I love that no one knows who I am.“ - Essie Davis

Naya Rivera Says Glee Costar Heather Morris Has ‘Big Shoes to Fill’ Following DWTS Winner Amber Riley into the Ballroom
Dancing with the Stars season 24 premieres Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC

Another Glee alum is stepping into the Dancing with the Stars ballroom — so will Heather Morris be as successful as Amber Riley was?

PEOPLE caught up with Naya Rivera, who recently partnered with Nioxin to promote growth shampoos and treatments for thinning hair, and the actress opened up about how she thinks her former Glee costar Morris will fare on the ABC dance show’s upcoming season 24.

“When I saw the news I was so excited,” gushed Rivera, 30. “I definitely am going to be rooting for her and watching like I was with Amber.”

Riley, 31, previously took home the season 17 Mirrorball Trophy in 2013 alongside partner Derek Hough.

“I feel like Heather’s got some big shoes to fill,” added Rivera. “But I’m not worried about her because she’s a fantastic performer and a great dancer. I think she’s going to bring so much fun to the show. I’m excited!”
