showy

cassmoreiraxo  asked:

How do you think each twin would react when meeting their girlfriends parents?

Oooooh okay sooo..

ETHAN ➸ so I think that Ethan would be very chatty and a little bit showy-offy to your parents but also SUPER gentlemanly and smart and would call them Mrs. _________ and Mr. _________ and he would be super cute and sweet to your mom and if you had any siblings he would always play fight with them :)))

GRAYSON ➸ Grayson would be SUPER nervous and kinda quiet and reallllllly polite and awkward and mumbly but when he gets acquainted with them all he would be much more chatty and would be super nice to your younger siblings if you have any and would always want to help your parents with any chores and he would overall just be SUPER polite and sweet and nice :,,)

Into the Badlands is the perfect cure for your Iron Fist blues
Last weekend, Marvel premiered Iron Fist, its latest live-action Netflix show. To the disappointment of many fans, the series isn’t very good. Fortunately, there’s a solution if Iron Fist’s dull plot, poor characters, and Finn Jones’ single confused facial expression left you with a craving for some serious martial arts mayhem: AMC’s Into the Badlands.
By Chaim Gartenberg

So I binged the first season of Into the Badlands the other day, and wow… think southern gothic post-apocalyptica meets wuxia badassery. The martial arts are physics-defying and showy as heck, the scheming and back-stabbing rivals Game of Thrones (all of the power-play machinations, none of the gratuitous rape!), and the small character moments can be surprisingly affecting given how off-the-wall some of the world-building can be.

Also, Daniel Wu is reeeeeeaally easy on the eyes. Just sayin’.

It’s on Netflix right now, so give it a shot!

ok but imagine that since hunk and lance are such close friends everyone they meet thinks that they're together and when keith and lance get together keith very quickly gets sick of having to correct people all the time (lance is his bf dammit) so he just starts being really showy and lots of PDA and ngl i just want keith to be a clingy bf

keith pls

I’m trying to break the habit my mom passed on to me of only saying the genus of a plant’s latin name…. that’s not helpful lol like there are some specific plants I only know as “Euphorbia” or “Begonia” and like… do you know how many Euphorbia there are that look NOTHING ALIKE…. do you know how many Begonia there are that are RADICALLY DIFFERENT 

like Euphorbia especially it can look like this (most common to see in a greenhouse… it’s an annual good for showiness by itself or in a pot with other upright flowers) and is usually listed as just ‘Euphorbia hybrid’ but it’s usually a E. hypericifolia and E. graminea hybrid … I think

Euphorbia is also….. poinsettias. That’s Euphorbia pulcherrima

Euphorbia cotinifolia is a tree from Mexico and South America

Euphorbia horrida is basically a cactus

Euphorbia ingens is…. a cactus tree, though you often see these commercially before they get to the tree stage

Then, Euphorbia myrsinites… looks like a stretchy echeveria almost

This is Euphorbia obesa

And there are way too many for me to keep going honestly a lot of the commonly sold “cacti” are actually Euphorbia.

Okay, so Zelena obsessively researching engagement rings while Emma is dating Walsh because she wants to get this right.

Zelena critiquing the ring to Regina as soon. As they’re out of earshot. (How did he afford that? He’s a pirate. Bit showy if you ask me. Rattles off engagement ring babble very knowledgeably).

Regina reminds her they have to find Queen Cobra.

Zelena continues to mumble about engagement rings and how people should really ask her about things. She planned the whole Walsh/Emma wedding too, thank you.

u got any headcanons for peacock!nino?

A thousand and a half. His teammates are lowkey attracted to him, the worst is Volpina and Cat Noir poor babies. Has to do with how showy and ‘strut your stuff’ peacocks are, and nino constantly has a crisis like “Why is everyone into paon??? its cause im a superhero right like… its not like im actually attractive its just…” and then he bums himself out. But then Dusuu gets sassy with him like “Boy just because i know how to work with what you have and your ass doesnt don’t mean you havent got something worth showing.” And Dusuu tells nino that maybe if he didnt hide under baggy jackets, loose fitting shirts, cargo pants big glasses and hats he might actually realize what he looks like. So Dusuu is like “You like all your clothes right? you wouldnt own them if you didnt like them or were uncomfortable in them yeah? so whats the harm in letting me pick what you wear for the day if you like it all anyways.”

and nino is like “…yeah whatever if it makes you happy, doesnt matter to me.” 

But Dusuu knows how to play up Nino’s features and actually just not hide him under a pile of baseball caps all the time and the first day he strolls into school just wearing what Dusuu asked him too (No hat, no glasses ((he doesnt need them ever since he got his miraculous he just uses them)) dark jeans, just overall complimentary everything)) his class is like “oh sHIT”

And then he has another additional crisis because wtf is he actually attractive??? i thought it was just the hero factor??? WHAT HAPPENS NOW

He starts to eventually gain more confidence through being Paon, but overall maintains his genuine humble nature. He doesnt take it as an opportunity to be like “im the shit” hes just happier because hes more confident in himself. 


He takes early morning patrols to lowkey sing with the song birds because singing in front of other people embarrasses him. He teaches the song birds in the city tunes and you can hear them echoed all over throughout the day. And he teaches them his made up theme song for ladybug and cat (the theme song he is too embarassed to admit he actually wrote) so you can hear the melody of “Miraculous, simply the best” occasionally in the city. But he starts to notice a new tune he hasnt heard before whenever the birds see him, like a greeting, and he realizes that they knew that song wasnt for him and wrote him his own theme song that they sing for him whenever they say hello. 


Birds love Nino. Adrien is not super into the fact that birds love him but over the course of several years develops a tolerance. 

When he gets pissed his tail does the thing where is sticks up and fans out and its lowkey Cat Noir and Volpinas favorite thing in the universe so they have a competition over who can get him to do it the most 


His gold eyes glow slightly brighter when he uses his power (this is my same headcanon that i have for Jade when he uses Time Crawl)

Plant of the Day
Sunday 26 March 2017

From a distance I thought this was a flowering cherry but on closer inspection it was the beautiful Staphylea holocarpa ‘Rosea’ (bladdernut). This deciduous plant once established makes a large branching shrub or small tree. It has showy, fragrant, pale pink bell-shaped flowers, in nodding groups that appear before the bronze young leaves, and followed by greenish-white bladder like fruit. I think we should plant more of these!

I know the whole fandom has decided that Victor would want a big, showy wedding and Yuri would want a quiet, intimate one, but have you considered the reverse? Victor wanting to wed Yuri with just his closest friends and family and Yuri saying, “Look, if I’m gonna marry Victor fucking Nikiforov, I want the whole world to witness every glorious second of it.”

Curses are an interesting breed of magic.  They require a certain level of creativity.  Like a charm, curses are often made of the mage’s own words rather than the scripted lines of a spell.  The tricky thing about curses, though, is the choice of words.  Curses thrive on poetry.  They have a flair for the dramatic, eloquent lines of verse instead of magic thrown haphazardly into a few words.  

           Curses are showy and elegant, which is why they are so well-fitted to villains.

           This morning I’m out the door before Snow has even begun to stir, my wand tucked into my pocket.  The passages are cold with the morning frost, and birdsong echoes off the stone of the walls.

           I spent all of last evening crafting this curse, after I’d dumped the rest of my tea out the window.  Salt.  He’d turned the sugar into salt, and I hadn’t even had the sense to stop after the first sip. I just had to keep drinking, even before I was sure he had done anything to it.  Pride and spite are just two sides of the same coin.

           I’m the first one in the dining hall, which is exactly what I’d hoped for.  The tables are set, the chairs are tucked in, and the mouth-watering aroma of pastry wafts from behind the closed kitchen doors.  Immediately my eyes are drawn to a particular seat towards the right of the hall.  It’s the first place I look every time I enter, and from that moment on it’s the place I avoid looking at for the rest of the meal.

           As I make my way over to Snow’s seat, I find myself stepping lightly and my heart starting to pick up, like I think I might get caught.  The involuntary adrenaline of the oncoming curse increases as I reach the spot. What luck that Snow hasn’t sat anywhere else since our first year.

           Pulling my wand from my pocket, I cast a quick look around the room to make sure no one has snuck up on me, and take a breath that reaches deep within my belly, igniting that familiar spark of magic.  I lower the wand to tap Snow’s plate.

“Tick tock, hard as rock,

Stone and glass and marble block,

Soft and fluffy cherry scone

To his teeth be hard as bone,

Any food to touch this face,

Toughness of cement encase,

And when hands do wash this plate,

Return then to your former state.”

           I don’t see any obvious change in the plate I’m cursing, but I know it will work.  The spark has fanned into a flame, dancing through the wand and sinking into the glass.

           It takes a few seconds longer for my magic to burn out and my heart rate to slow back down, but as soon as I feel it soften I turn and leave the dining hall.

*** 

When I return later, I do the same thing as I always do.  I glance at Snow’s seat to find it empty still, and then make my way to my own table on the far side of the room.  Dev and Niall are already there, and they both give me a silent nod as I slide into my seat.  I can’t help but look back at Snow’s table, my eyes darting from the door to where Bunce is already waiting and back again.

           “Everything alright?” Dev catches me scanning the crowd of students.  “You look jumpy.”

           “Didn’t get much sleep,” I tell him, and he shrugs like he doesn’t particularly care if I’m telling the truth or not.

           When Snow appears in the doorway, I automatically drop my gaze back down to my empty plate.  I don’t see him sit down at his spot, exchange pleasantries with Bunce, jump back up to retrieve the famed sour cherry scones from the front of the hall, and yet I still manage to see all of it.  It’s in my periphery, it’s constantly on the edge of my awareness, biting through the shell I keep trying to put up around myself.

           I can’t help but watch when he brings the first scone to his mouth.

           The effect is visibly immediate.  His eyes widen and his free hand flies to his mouth. Bunce looks concerned, and Snow is staring at the scone in betrayal.  Tentatively he goes in for another, much smaller bite.  Once again he is the picture of dismay.

           My tea for your scones, I think.  Fair.

           But he looks so miserable that it almost takes some of the fun out of it.

           I see Bunce drop one of her own scones onto his plate, and I can’t help snickering at her mistake when he can’t bite into that one, either.

           I remember to look anywhere else just as Snow casts a withering glare in my direction.

           We’re even, don’t you dare try to pull anything.

           But if we don’t settle it officially, he will do just that.

           I push my chair back from the table and stand, mumbling an excuse of “not hungry” before stalking to the doors.  I feel Snow’s eyes on me the whole way.

           When he catches up with me, I’m leaning casually against the stone wall just out of sight of the dining hall, my arms crossed, a bored expression smoothed onto my face.  Snow marches up to me, red-cheeked and scowling.

           “What the fuck did you do, Baz?” he growls, his tone accusatory.

           “Magic, Snow,” I tell him, not wasting time pretending it wasn’t me.  “It’s what we came to Watford to learn, did no one ever tell you?”

           “You spelled my food?” he says like it’s the worst offense in the world.

           “Cursed, actually, and it’s the plate, not the scones themselves.  That’s why Bunce couldn’t help you.”

           He backs off an inch or two, crossing his arms over his chest in a mimic of my own posture.  “So that’s how you want to play?”

           “Don’t peg this on me, Snow,” I raise an eyebrow at him, “you’re the one who had to start something.”

           “But you responded,” he retorts, a lock of bronze falling into his eyes, “and you made it personal.”

           “Because what could be more personal than scones?”

           “I’m not kidding, Baz.”  He takes a confrontational step closer and I’m glad no one is around to see my shoulders stiffen.  “This isn’t over.”

           Of course it’s not.  Because he’s Simon Snow and I’m Baz Pitch, and we’re enemies.  It can never just be “over” for us.

           So I lean as close as I dare, holding his blazing gaze in my own.  “Fine,” I murmur, “have it your way.”

           “It’s on.”

           “Your move.”

Lapis & Peridot’s fusion transformation theme will be magical girl.

So far each fusion has had it’s own stylized introduction. Sugilite had her intimidating and showy dark dragon. Sardonix had her flashy and over the top stage reveal. Malachite had her body horror slow transformation. Soky Quartz had their fun hug-explosion, ect…

So far there hasn’t been a flashy magical girl type fusion reveal and one reason I suspect that Peridot and Lapis would get that honor is their powers combined.

Metal + Water = Liquid metal /Mercury 

Taking in how much the crew likes their anime references I just can’t see them passing this up. Combining two magical anime nerds together to create a super powered magical dork.
