shining excellence


I have officially climbed over a massive hurdle. That massive hurdle of completing and graduating law school. It has been a long and tough road. From sleepless nights, anxiety attacks, and barely passing my first semester by the skin of my teeth. But all that seems insignificant, the moment I walked across that stage in all my MELANIN GLORY as I gazed upon my fellow colleagues. Realizing, my class (CLASS OF 2017) was the first class of my university to have the highest percentage of POC walking across that stage to receive their Juris Doctor degree. A university, where historically POC’s make up less than 15% of the population. So not only was this a momentous moment for me, but for those who look like me, and those who see me and feel inspired that through hard work and dedication, anything is possible!

For those that doubted me, those who claimed I wasn’t good enough, and those who my dreams will never become a reality… well to you, I say “Thank You!” You see your lack of support and intent to tear me down provided me with the ammunition that allowed me to overcome every obstacle law school hurled my way. I walked across that stage and claimed my degree, despite your doubt. . . I AM GOOD ENOUGH. My dreams will never become a reality you say? Many told me it was unrealistic to expect to obtain employment overseas straight out of law school, furthering that it was even difficult to obtain one in my own city. I can only chuckle as I sit here completing my visa application for a position in China I landed BEFORE I even walked across that stage. If you see no opportunity, then YOU must be the master of your own plan and create that opportunity.

Children Names Headcanon

Requested by anon: I love the baby headcanons you did with Credence, Newt, and Percival. They’re all so lovely and sweet (i’ve been reading them non-stop b/c they’re THAT good)! And it got me thinking, what would they name their kids? I keep thinking that Credence would probably name his daughter Cherish, or something.

I doubt you thought I would go all out Anon, but here were ones I could come up with for a good majority of the characters in Fantastic Beasts

      • Other than getting a little chuckle for using Credence’s actor name, there is an actual reason for suggesting that name. Christian’s name meaning is ‘follower of Christ’ while Ezra means ‘helper’ in Hebrew. For Credence I would think that even if he left Mary Lou’s control there would be some influence and he would choose religious types of names.
  • Girl
    • Cherish or Temperance
      • Cherish is means ‘treasure’ while Temperance means ‘moderation’ or ‘restraint’. Now Cherish was suggested by anon, and I love the idea since he probably would treasure any child that is his, especially a little girl. Temperance is similar to the reasons for the boy’s names of Mary Lou’s influence on him, but also as a reminder for restraint of his abilities and how he wouldn’t want to harm his child.

    • Lohengrin or Arthur
      • Now Lohengrin is a nod to the Arthurian legends that people headcanon Percival’s family for, as Lohengrin in those legends is actually the son of Knight Percival. Arthur, while also part of the Arthurian legends, has Celtic elements artos “bear” combined with viros “man” or rigos “king”. I can imagine that Percival would be very proud of his son and would likely give him the name that could mean king.
  • Girl
    • Elizabeth or Lynna
      • Elizabeth has the  meaning “my God is an oath” or perhaps “my God is abundance” which considering that people consider Percival to be loyal to MACUSA would have some sort of name regarding to an oath. Likewise it it is very strong sounding, something that I think Percival would appreciate. Lynna is an abbreviation of Lynette, a woman from the Arthurian Legend who accompanied Sir Gareth on a knightly quest in Arthurian legend.

    • Leo or Robin
      • So I chose animal type of names for Newt for obvious reasons, due to his interest in creatures but also in the British Wizarding world, there tend to be a lot of star type names in wizarding families. Leo is a constellation as well as the latin name for lion, so that would be the reasoning behind that name. Robin is a diminutive of the name Robert, which means “bright fame”, as well as the stories of Robin Hood. I would like to think that Newt would like the idea of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor as he is a very giving type of person.
  • Girl
    • Maia or Kestrel 
      • Maia is similar to Leo for being a constellation, however it also means  "great" in Latin something I can imagine Newt possibly name his daughter after. Also the roman goddess Maia was the goddess of spring, something very earthy and something that Newt would be all about…I think. Kestrel is from the name of the bird of prey, and I thought it it’d be cute.

    • Phoebus or Matthew
      • Phoebus means ‘bright’ or ‘pure’ in latin, something Tina would name her son because he’s pure in her eyes. Matthew was similar as the name means ‘Gift from God’. I would think for Tina, that maybe having a child, especially with her line of work that she would consider the child to be a pure being and a gift. She sees a lot of bad things in her line of work, seeing a child as a blank slate is something she would do.
  • Girl
    • Zoe or Alexandra
      • Zoe means “life” in Greek and from early times it was adopted by Hellenized Jews as a translation of Eve, which apparently from my research Tina and Queenie were (possibly) were Jewish, so I can see either of them using this name, but for the sake of different names, Tina would probably use that name. Alexandra is a the feminized form for Alexander, which means defender. Given Tina’s occupation, it would be a cute name for her daughter.

  • Boy
    • Nicholas or Lucas
      • Nicholas means “victory of the people”. Given her and Jacob’s relationship, I could see her possibly wanting to name her son Nicholas, as he would be a victory of their relationship that is considered forbidden in her society, that even in such a forbidden romance, that they could create a child. Lucas means "light-giving” or “illumination”, meaning her son would be almost like a beacon. Given her personality, it wouldn’t be too far off base that she would give her son an uplifting name.
    • Girl
      • Kayla or Cassandra
        • Kayla means keeper of the keys or pure. With Queenie’s kind personality, I could see her naming her daughter a name that means pure. Also keeper of the keys could be a parody of Queenie’s ability to open and read minds, and her daughter would ‘hold the keys’ to that ability. Cassandra means "to excel, to shine”. Similar to the boys names, I could imagine Queenie wanting to name her daughter as something that shines as she loves her daughter and sees her as this bright being.

    • Alfred or Isaac
      • Alfred is derived from the Old English name Ælfræd, composed of the elements ælf “elf” and ræd “counsel”. Considering that Jacob was introduced to the magic world, where elves are exist (they may not be pretty, but still they exist) I could see him doing something like that. Plus it would make his comment about liking house-elves so it’s relevant. Isaac has the  meaning “he will laugh, he will rejoice”. Given Jacob’s personality, I could so imagine him having named his child after laughter or rejoicing. Also, for him and Queenie, there would be rejoicing for having a child together.
  • Girl
    • Ruth or Keren
      • Ruth means “friend” in Hebrew, and likewise, seeing as how Jacob was such a good friend to Newt and the others, I could see him naming his daughter after a meaning that stands for friendship. Keren means “horn” or “ray of light” in Hebrew. Similar to how Queenie would name a child after being a ray of light, I could picture Jacob doing something similar. With Queenie, it would mean how their relationship created such a miracle. For a more personal reason, I would think Jacob would name his daughter about a ray of light after going through WWI and losing his brother through that.

Astoria Greengrass hates Draco Malfoy, former Death Eater, and all round prejudiced asshole. It takes a year for her to change her mind, and another year to fall head-over-heels in love with him. This is the story of how it happens. 

I had the idea for this fic a while ago. I thought wouldn’t it be cool if Daphne introduces Astoria and Draco at a party, and wouldn’t it be even cooler if she starts off hating him, while he’s besotted with her from the first moment. It’s taken me a while to get round to writing it, but here we are! I will admit, as Astoria fell in love with Draco, I fell in love with the two of them as a couple. I think they’re wonderful, and I hope some of you will agree. 

Massive thanks to @abradystrix for betaing this, and thanks to @platinasi for flailing with me and being generally supportive while I wrote it. You’re both superb human beings.

So earlier tonight I was in a bathroom stall in my dorm and a few drunkish guys came in. They were being pretty loud but relatively copacetic so I was gonna let it slide.
Then one of the dudes busts out of a stall and says “yo what the fuck is this bullshit on the doors”

He was referring of course to the anti-sexual harassment posters on all the stall doors that tell everyone how to notice the signs and report and all sorts of quality, much-needed info.
I went to stand up and yell at him but stopped cold when one of the other dudes says, completely seriously:
“Sexual harassment.”
But he said it in a sort of “shut up bro you don’t know what you’re talking about” way.

First guy; “that’s bullshit”

Second guy: “no it isn’t, man”

Third guy: *dead seriously* “it happens, people need to be informed.”

First guy: “whatever”

Third guy: “what if I just grabbed your dick right now, what would you say, huh?”

First guy: “I’d call you a faggot.”

Now at this point I stood up and looked over the stall and said “you can’t fucking say that word. People die every day because of it.”

Third guy: *pleasantly surprised* “I was just about to say that.”

Second guy: “yeah, man, we had this conversation earlier.”

Third guy: *goes to fist bump me but hesitates* “wait have you wiped already?”

Me: “I’ve been in here like ten seconds, you’re good.”

Third guy: “aight man *bump* have a good night.”

It made me so fucking proud to go to my college knowing that drunk frat boys are here educating their stupid friends about consent and decency. Keep shining, Wooster.
And stay excellent, unnamed hammered guys.

Heaven is a Place on Earth  Joker X Reader

“I can see my baby swingin’

His parliaments on fire and his hands are up 

On the balcony and I’m singing  

Ooh baby ooh baby 

I’m in love”

“Come on baby it’s getting to hot in here” I heard him say glancing around the loud and glittering club, seeming to distrust everyone in the room. Some sort of silent exchange was made between Frost and himself due to the eye contact he made momentarily with Frost who only nodded back.. I slowly turned my head to him releasing myself from romantic thoughts of him and I that danced in my head. I smiled looking into his scared and tattooed face. His blue eyes met my green ones for a weird second before he came to a stand. He looked sharp as always. Black dress pants a crisp white button up. I swooned inside watching him walk so perfectly through the crowd taking my hand when I started to fall behind; being to busy caught up in how the muscles in his shoulders flexed as he moved. I held his icy cold hand firmly in mine; his grip was relaxed yet seemed to be ready to pull the trigger on any funny man that tried something. I giggled saying  ‘funny man’ out loud to myself. What an odd way to describe someone. The bouncers pushed the doors open and we entered Gotham’s cool night air that sent shivers up my exposed legs. “Where are we going honey?” I said playfully. He smiled then kissed my hand. “Oh just for a little drive” he said walking to the drivers side of the Lambo. I nodded becoming weary of the situation. It was always a toss up with J I never knew if he was ditching a scene to avoid a ‘vacation’ at Arkham, possibly a beat down from batsy or he was finally going to cut my neck and leave me to dry like he always threatened when he was angry. I swallowed hard noticing the two armed thugs standing behind me. I looked to J who was still standing by the drivers side in a trace, eyes locked on the ground. “Baby what’s going on?” I said weakly. Maybe this was it. He looked at me something sad coming to his face. “Nothing doll” he said “Get in the car so I can get you home. I’m not losing my doll again” I nodded compliantly getting in the luxury car his word echoing through my head. Lose me again? 

Two or three months ago I had been taken by Black Mask being used as a hostage until J, like the good man he is agreed to kill the mayor of Gotham. Since Black mask lacked the means to do it himself he needed J to do it, being he was gifted in anything having to do with murder though not gifted in being bossed around. If J completed the task Mask would return me safely home. Ultimately the plan failed miserably. I was locked in a damp basement for I think about a week until one day the steel door on the joint was blasted off of it’s hinges. Frost stepped in with a machine gun taking out the two creeps that guarded me then ushered for the other men to come down, J came down last making him vulnerable for one of Mask’s men to stick a gun to his head, which they did. All and all guns went a-blazing and Black Mask escaped the shoot out. Maybe he really did miss me? I bopped myself on the head dismissing the silly thoughts, my presence was an option for him not a necessity.   

J took no time starting up the car and jamming it down the street. The sheer power of the vehicle slammed me back in my seat ripping my focus from my thoughts. “J what the hell” I said smacking his shoulder. There was an odd silence between us until our eyes met putting a smile on both of our faces. This turned into giggles and in a few minutes we were two laughing maniac’s zooming down 12th street. “Oh baby” he said caressing my face with a smile. The lights from the buildings we drove past threw a sort of beautiful Aura around him. I smiled back leaning forward connecting my lips with his. 

The moment we made contact it was as if everything exploded. All my fears and insecurities gone with the touch of his icy hand and sound of his purr. We continued on kissing (and driving) until there was a violent crunching sound and I found myself being hurtled through the air. My eyes only connecting with the night sky, squinted a little trying to avoid their horrible glare. This was an unfamiliar situation usually I loved to gaze up and see the twinkling lights of other worlds but my eyes couldn’t take it. The initial impact of the ground didn’t hurt being so my brain was still trying to comprehend why the stars were acting the way they were. Then the sliding began and suddenly none of that astronomical mumbo-jumbo mattered. My skin felt like it was being lit up fire then dosed in chemicals over and over again. All 115 pounds of me slid a crossed the black top only being stopped when my head smacked off a brick building knocking me temporarily unconscious. When I came to I could hear gunshots around me but no person came into view, until I saw a black caped figure stalking towards me, his eyes seeming to glow a blue color. My heart quickened as my arms attempted to drag me away from him until the pain hit. I screamed in agony looking down at my body. Parts of my arms and legs were completely skinned and bloodied seeming to create a pool of my own life source below me. He scooped me up looking quickly round him before firing what I now know to be his bat-claw “J!” I screamed looking down below as the Dark Knight whisked me through the air. I spotted J for a short second he was slumped up against his car completely still. “Baby!” I screamed fighting Batman’s grasp. I kicked my legs and writhed around until I broke his hold falling freely down until I found myself rocked by a black nothingness. 

For a quick second I thought I was dead; my eyes opening to be stared down by a fuzzy light above me. Was this heaven? To my dismay it wasn’t A pretty brown haired nurse came and stuck a needle in my arm. “Ow lady watch it” I said weakly. She simply smiled at me and continued about her business. Sorely I looked around the room it was that of any basic hospital. A beeping machine stiff white blankets, the smell of cleanser. The only difference was I seemed to be in a sort of solitary confinement room. It was completely cement and had a heavy metal door locked tight instead of the flimsy blue curtain they usually had. I peered through the little window that that was on the door spotting the bat’s black cowl. Anger vibrated me and I felt my legs coming to a stand forcing me to run to the door. “I’m going to kill you Bat-freak let me out of here!” My bloodied fist pounded on the glass until I felt it crack underneath my fist. I smiled a sense of encouragement enabling me to hit harder until I was able to crash my fist through the window my hand grabbing the first throat I could. It was the nurse that had poked me before, the bat was completely gone. Most likely due to the fact he wasn’t there to begin with, only being a figment of my imagination. 

A week ago I had a nail technician due my nails longer and sharper for no reason really besides I saw the ones Cat women had and thought eh why not try something new? J when he saw them held my hand in his a mischievous grin coming to his face. He wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me in tight. “Whaddya say we go in the back and break those puppies in? hmm?” I laughed kissing him on the lips as he lifted me up laughing as he made his way to our bedroom. I grew sad at the memory digging my nails deeper and deeper into the nurse’s neck hoping that maybe the harder I squeezed he would come strolling down the hallways machine gun in hand, Frost to the side of him taking out any loser that came at them. Her warm blood trickled in between my fingers making it harder to keep my grip turning her whimpers into deafening screams. 

A team of cops suddenly lined up in front of the door. Their guns drawn. “Open the doors boys and the lady gets to keep her neck” I peered into the cops faces recognizing one to be Jim Gordon. He was talking harshly into a walkie talkie. “So what are we supposed to do let this crazy bitch walk free. She’s practically got a staff members throat completely ripped out.” Whoever was talking on the other end seemed to easy Jim’s conflict which worried me. Was my Price okay? Was this one of their tricks where they say if I cooperate I could see J but when  they let me out he’s laying dead of a stretcher. My nostrils flared, anger boiling in my stomach. “Okay boys you have one more chance let me out of the nurse is going to have a serious throat ache.” I watched the police their shoes shining excellent off of the polished speckled floor. Gordon nodded giving the ‘go ahead’ nod to an officer who opened the door. I stepped out smiling at Gotham’s finest dragging the nurse with me. “Now could any of you tell me where my Prince is?” I made steady eye contact with every officer. They kept their justice loving mouths shut. “Fine then” I said squeezing the nurses throat harder. She fell to her knees with a scream. All the police officers lunged forward looking to Gordon for directions. I locked my eyes on his. “God dammit. Y/n stop. He’s in route to a different hospital.” I smiled at him “See was it really that har-” everyone’s attention was pulled away when the hospital doors flew open revealing a patient with pale skin and green hair.. 

My heart dropped “How in the- Why is he here” Gordon shouted talking excitedly into his walkie talkie.Everything in my brain broke loose not being able to fathom the emotions the coursed through my body. My grip tightened on the nurses throat until I was able to completely tear a section of her jugular clean out. Blood splattered a crossed everyone’s faces. None of that mattered though my legs broke out into a full sprint. “J!” i screamed. He looked back. “Y/n!” he sat up quickly and took out the doctors surrounding him. I was just feet away from him. No not feet inches both of us reached out our hands about to touch when I was pulled back. My eyes looked down to see two nightmarish rubber black arms then up to J. “No!” he yelled trying to fight the swarm of cops that was subduing him his eyes looking into mine with panic? or fear swarming in them. I called out his name over and over again until a pinch on my arm brought me back to the nothingness I had just broken out of.

AN: See? I am actually working through these requests! It’s just taking awhile. Hope you like it!


A masquerade ball. What a strange idea. The student union is trying to find more “creative” ways to raise funds. Guess a rich university like Watford can afford to be creative. They’ve rented out some fancy hotel ballroom nearby, got the art department to make masks, the drama department to loan costumes, and for 20 quid a person, you can dance with fellow students. It’s absolutely ludicrous. And possibly fun. I desperately need some fun.

Juice Robinson vs. Kazuchika Okada - G1 Climax 27 Day 10

4.5/5 (**** ½) - The story of Juice Robinson’s first G1 is one of the best told this year. He came in as the bright excited young babyface, won his first match in a big upset over one of the people he looked up to in Satoshi Kojima, then got abused and beat down twice in a row by EVIL and Minoru Suzuki. He would be essentially a one legged man by the time he had to face the current IWGP Heavyweight Champion, and had to win if he wanted to still have a chance to make the finals. Stories like these are only told in the G1, and are told with great matches like this one. 

Juice gave a career defining performance, refusing to stay down for Okada, using what fighting spirit he had left to give his all. All the action was extremely crisp and smooth. Okada seemed to be trying to motivate Juice to fight even harder in the match, to the point of him becoming cocky which I thought would be his downfall. Like most matches in this tournament, it had a slower start and built up to a crazy finish, but this one shines from excellent storytelling. It took three Rainmakers to extinguish Juices fighting spirit, making him look insanely strong even in defeat. This might be the best match Juice ever has.

“We hate you n******” , “those people” , “all lives matter” , “dark skin is ugly”. From birth we are looked at in a different way that isn’t the standard to American beauty. We aren’t treated with respect and if we are we get disrespected behind closed doors. We bear the responsibility to work twice as hard to get to higher positions and to still be disappointed when we reach our goals. Our skin is something we are taught to hate, to second guess. What’s happening to our people right now shouldn’t be a catalyst to start hating ourselves but to appreciate us and only us. I mean just look how beautiful your skin is. It shines with excellence, it glistens with joy, it symbolizes unity and power. As an artist, this is what I want to show. The beauty of our people. I’m blessed to have one night where I’ll have all of the photos in this set printed and hung up in a gallery for my own solo show. I want the WORLD to see how beautiful we are. @trecrews

Black Panther: One More Month

God January can’t end soon enough. I cannot wait for Black Panther to drop so I can bask in all its endless Glory.

What I love most about this film and even in Civil War which lead up to Black Panther is this really strong sense of family that you get in the small moments of Civil War and the ones we see from the trailers. Even in the Voice Narration of T'Chalas father he actually speaks very highly of his son but out of love states that because of such good qualities it’d be hard for him to be king. I love that play against each other.

Originally posted by conners-kent

How many times have we all heard examples that make up a “Great King” as having a good heart and always bring an upstanding person that strives to be this pillar for the community? We always are given the idea that it is what got this person that place; and yet T'Chalas fathers in a lot of ways condemns such characteristics because he fears they will only hurt his son and his kingdom. This is great because it instantly nullifies that idea of a typical “Kings Journey”. Simply put, he establishes “It Is NOT That Easy” and that “It Doesn’t Just All Fall Into Place”

This harken to a few things for me personally that I think this movie (based off what’s been shown to us so far) wants to bring to black audience members as a whole, the first example being “SUPPORT”.

It is RIDDLED with is from head to toe in trailers and even in Civil War. Thes characters stand together as one, move as one and SUPPORT each other as one. Hell you even get this with the main villain of the plot. Here are just a few examples

Why Is This Important?

Because it helps promote and push for community amongst African-Americans. It helps push a much needed agenda that there is a positive effects and influence towards greatness of having a supporting circle around you. This is the one thing that the “Black Community” has been struggling with maintaining for quite some generations now and there almost seems to be a fear of such things or rather a reluctant and not-so-blissful ignorance.

The next comon theme that harkens out to me an is prob marked in my mind as one of the most important is one you’ve been seeing this entire time through these Gifs… The importance and heightening of importance of African-Americans woman through out. I love how there is a Great sense of equality between everyone in this. There is such a strong sense of positive pride and respect for woman in this film its almost overwhelming especially since it even goes beyond just African-Americans woman but woman in general.

Lastly I want to end with this, this movie takes on a deeper level that some may miss and sadly won’t even understand the importance it has. It’s not just another movie where we watch the main black character in a role we’ve seen dozens of times. It’s not the same stereotypes where there is doubt in the characters character or “typical” in behavior. This movie is about shedding light on Black Excellence and also bring forth a positive sense of pride. A pride that speaks to our hearts that we hold ourselves in higher standards than what the rest of the world may see. An that we are excellent.

But don’t forget… this is a movie for everyone and that those positive feelings should spread beyond our own personal boarders.
