can you do a got7 reaction to seeing your hair revert bacy to curly while swimming?
Mark: Mark legit was looking for you for about 5 minutes before he realized the dime piece with the big ol hair was in fact, HIS dime piece. “baby oh my god. You got me messed up, changing into a WHOLE new person like that.”
JB: You two have been swimming for awhile and slowly you hair was converting back to its curly state. it wasn’t until you swam over to the edge of the pool that Jaebum noticed your hair wasn't straight anymore. “whao what! your hair! when did you do that?!” and now you have his fingers allll over your hair. congratulation.
Jackson: “So it takes me 3 hours to get a perm but you just get in the water for 15 minutes and it goes throught a complete metaphorphic change? not fair…”
Kara sending Mon-El away DOES NOT compare to Sanvers. At all. There is no comparison to be made. The Danvers sisters dynamic obviously needs to be discussed before we enter season 3.
1.) Kara losing her boyfriend =/= Alex losing her girlfriend.
Kara has had various other relationships and has other good non-romantic relationships. Kara has a mentor in Cat Grant, a best friend in Winn AND Lena, James, CLARK, Barry, Lois and Lucy. A mom in Eliza, a pseudo-father figure in J’onn and she has the Allura AI. Oh, and the biggest one: Kara has Alex. Kara has all of these people that love her and want to support her and wish only the best for her.
Alex on the other hand, let’s examine her relationships with other people. She has Maggie, “Ride or Die” Sawyer, Eliza, and J’onn. All of her other relationships are strictly professional (Vasquez, Lucy) or are Kara’s friends (Winn, James). WIth Maggie, “I finally got her to be herself, Kara,” Alex bares her soul. She’s all in and has everything to lose, “Marry me, please.” With Eliza, Alex constantly feels like she’s failing. She literally went to medical school (compromising her mental health with the stress obviously) because that’s what Eliza expected of her. I will delve into the can of worms that is the “weight of the world” responsibility that Alex has had to shoulder since she was a child in another point. Alex’s relationship with Eliza is strained at best. Also side-note, ouch at Alex losing Jeremiah again, one of the few important people Alex has in her life. Alex’s relationship with J’onn was more mentor-mentee and professional before it was revealed he is an alien in season one. After that, we see the relationship develop and progress to where J’onn is a pseudo-father figure to Alex. But they’re still boss-employee, don’t forget that. The bond there does not constitute a healthy outlet in which Alex can express her feelings and frustrations. He is her boss after all. You may think that like with Kara, I’ll add that Alex has Kara, but you’re mistaken. Kara has Alex, Alex doesn’t have Kara. Which makes my next point.
2.) The rift between the sisters has always been there.
Their relationship is so one-sided that it’s more frustrating than laughable. Alex does anything and everything for Kara, hell, the pilot episode has Alex picking out clothes for Kara’s date even though her flight is in a few hours! Kara admits herself that everything has always been about her and that there’s been no room for Alex. Kara didn’t even know why Alex and Vicky had a falling out! I sincerely doubt that Kara knew anything about Alex’s frustrations while in medical school. I don’t know about the rest of the world, but the closest person I have to a sibling hears everything about me (the good, the bad, and the ugly) and vice versa. I’m not saying immediately after it happens but eventually we do share everything with each other. I’m not blaming Kara for immediately latching onto Alex and trying to preserve as much of Krypton as she could, I am however blaming the Danvers parents for encouraging and enabling the behavior. No one should ever have the entire life of another person depend solely on them, that puts an ENORMOUS amount of pressure on the person that is being relied upon. Alex literally entered the Black Mercy AND flew Kara’s pod into space because she thinks Eliza would never forgive her if she allowed Kara to get hurt (whoo at that backlash in season 1 after Kara becomes Supergirl and Alex is afraid of what Eliza would say while Kara says not to worry and then Eliza tears Alex a new one. Makes you wonder what all Kara has missed in her obliviousness.)
Kara states while under red kryptonite that Alex has always has been jealous of Kara which I 100% believe to be true. Kara received special attention and care from Eliza and Jeremiah and never had to take the blame for any of her actions. What sibling wouldn’t hold resentment? Especially once it was revealed that Jeremiah was blackmailed into joining the DEO because of Kara which resulted in his (not really) death. That had to sting and speaking of death, Alex literally killed Kara’s aunt that she was slowly converting to the good side. Twin sister that literally looked identical to Kara’s biological mother. This was never actually resolved by the show.
We saw in a flashback that Alex was punished for Kara’s actions unfairly because, seriously, Alex was just a teenager. From what can be inferred, Kara ruined Alex’s social standing in school (which sounds petty but actually can be the cause of a lot of psychological distress) and also someone makes a comment about how Alex should know how dangerous aliens/Kara can be, which another flashback to the beach implies that Alex was injured from the explosion AND also that Kara probably accidentally injured Alex multiple times in their childhood.
3.) Kara is afraid of “losing” Alex and repeatedly lashes out and causes Alex to feel guilty for anything she does that doesn’t pertain to Kara.
I could quote so many things but I feel like this point is pretty universally understood. I will point out the manifested guilt Alex has from both Eliza and Kara: “I was happy for five minutes!” Yeah, okay so it wasn’t the best move for Alex to decide to go to her favorite band’s concert on the Earth birthday in which Kara had finally been on Earth longer than Krypton (kinda insensitive) but if we’re being honest, it’s not like Kara would’ve been THAT upset normally. She literally made the plans THAT morning to try and distract herself. I could make a whole other post highlighting how the absence of Cat Grant, the sudden missing time due to vigilante shenanigans with Winn and James, and the sudden stop of 24/7 care by Alex turned Kara towards Mon-El in the first place but this isn’t that post.
Kara making Alex feel guilty for having another person in her life is extremely manipulative. I’m sure Alex lost a lot of quality sister time once Kara became Supergirl but she never seems to complain about that. Alex having another person in her life shouldn’t cause Kara to constantly play the “Maggie” card. The rift between Kara and Maggie due to both their connections with Alex and in their professional lives is yet another thing I could write an exposé on. Kara clearly doesn’t like Maggie and the feeling is mutual, they’re just civil because Alex desperately wants them to be. Will the show ever resolve the tension? Doubtful, it’ll just be another unexplored plotline.
Alex shouldn’t have to feel guilty for finally having someone she can release her frustrations with, Alex has clearly been lighter since dating Maggie. They’re good for each other. Unlike Kara and Mon-El who consistently bring out the worst in each other. Kara is jealous that Alex isn’t 100% focused on her AND that she has a healthy relationship. It’s nasty that Kara is intent on destroying Alex’s relationship due to misplaced anger and jealousy and that’s the tea on that.
Also, Alex literally had no one before, she couldn’t even Tell Kara or Eliza about the DEO. That’s a lonely life. And Alex based her entire life around Kara and Kara was willing to just drop it all and go live with Clark, completely abandoning Alex and making her feel like she wasn’t enough and not “family” (which obviously Alex already has issues with feeling inadequate.) Tell me that isn’t ugly.
I could continue but I just wrote this in between classes and have to go to class now so.
Tl;dr The Danvers sisters have always had unresolved tension and resentment towards each other. Kara needs some emotional development and needs to stop unleashing all of her anger onto Alex. It’s ugly that they’re going to try and parallel Karamel and Sanvers when the ships are completely different.
I mean, I kind of get why? Chunks of the fandom have this very strong perception of the galra as Hostile And Dangerous and they project that onto that side of Keith’s heritage. You see it in a lot of really body-horrific “transformation” concepts of like. Keith being slowly physically converted, often under torture, or the process itself is torture- or the idea of “instincts” that are invasive and mind-hijacking. That Keith’s own heritage is an invasion from within or a malicious, harmful influence he has to fight off. (That’s not behind all of it, but it’s a sometimes-unintended impression it gives: that Keith’s heritage is here to hurt him.)
smh i’m trying to redecorate Wes’ loft and i realized i have like 0 rugs from cleaning out my cc a few months ago. i closed my game to go hunt for some but ended up downloading 200 items of cc.. none of them were rugs.
Heavens. I had made Cersei on a whim the night of I got internet. I literally had nothing but a few pictures and a keyboard and like..maybe 2 followers? Cersei literally showed up out of no where and demanded that I love her, and it’s been a wild ride ever since. I’ve met so many people, written so many things, and Cersei and I have been through so much together. And I’m just thankful for every single moment that had happened, every single person I’ve met, and every heart wrenching and cute things our muses have been through.
Really it wouldn’t have been such an awesome ride without every single one of you, and I’m so thankful for you all. I know I’m terrible with having constant productivity but thank you for putting up with it. For putting up with the mess that I am and my random days where all I do is jack around doing nothing but reblogging pretty pictures. (how do you put up with me)
Beneath the cut is some very special shout outs to those I could never be without. Please I ask early on that you forgive me if I miss anyone. I have a terrible memory and there is just so MANY of you. ohmygosh. I can never be thankful enough. I love you all, my lovelies!
The New Zealand Academy of Spellcraft is situated in an undetectable location in the bush lands of South Island so incredibly difficult to find due to its surroundings’ constant changes in appearance that even repeat visitors often have trouble finding the school. Many muggleborn students are raging fanatics of the All Blacks, and they have slowly converted the rest of the student population who used to thumb their nose at the mention of rugby. However, quidditch remains immensely popular, with students often sneaking out under the cover of night to play matches in the dark because it is “more challenging, and therefore, more fun,” despite the drastic increase in the number of injuries and dents in trees due to rogue bludgers growing slightly panicked in the dark. The school prides itself on its large and prestigious herbology department; international witches and wizards often take on extended environmental studies at the academy, so students are always on the lookout for lost foreigners stumbling around. Often times when they graduate, students of distinction are gifted with Pounamu ornaments that are embedded into the handles of their wands as a reminder for them to always be at peace with their surroundings.
The first time Hannibal notices something amiss
it’s all to do with his favourite baby-blue and passion-flower striped shirt.
When he wears it Will always looks at him as though he might be god. And then
usually proceeds to follow the look up with some quite decent worship.
“Will? Have you seen the belle-blue pinstripe?”
“I’ve looked there. There’s no sign”
Hannibal comes into the kitchen and looks over
to where Will is sitting grumbling over the most recent speculation from
“Will? The belle-blue?”
Will looks up at him,
“Did you send another recipe to Freddie,
Hannibal? We talked about this. I thought we’d agreed?”
“Will? The shirt?”
Will pays slightly better attention, Hannibal
standing in the kitchen dressed except for his shirt. It’s an appealing sight.
“I still don’t know. Sorry. Want me to help you
find another? You know? In the bedroom?”
He grins and at first Hannibal is still too
distracted to really register the
dropped timbre of Will’s voice and careful survey.
“I’m supposed to be in the City in forty
minutes. I can find a shirt. I just wondered… oh. In the bedroom? That's… thank
you Will. Your assistance would be much appreciated”
Will slides off the kitchen bar stool.
“That’s the fourth thing this month you’ve
Hannibal frowns. It’s true. He pauses just for a
moment, what was that? Was that? Laughter?
Imagine traveling to New York without Chris. (Part A)
A/N: Part 3A 😊 You can read the related mini-series and the previous parts here: (Mini-series - Masterlist; Mini-series Spin-off: ‘Unexpected Reader’, ‘Little Ways Away’, ‘She Said Yes’, and ‘Miss Graduate’ - Masterlist; 'Something Blue’: Part 1/Part 2)
“Can’t you just get your wedding dress in LA?” Chris asked as he walked you towards the departure hall, wheeling your hand luggage behind him as you reached into your bag for your passport and air ticket. “I don’t understand why you have to fly all the way to New York when there are designers who are willing to fly in just to dress you.”
Yes. You were flying to New York for the weekend to do your wedding dress shopping with Ava, who had uproot her life and moved to New York since Sebastian proposed. She still spent a lot of time in LA because of you and your wedding, and stayed in the same apartment you found three years ago though- she actually owned it now that Sebastian bought it. They needed somewhere to stay when they were in LA and they’d much rather stay in a place that had memories, than a fancy hotel room.
“And I’m flattered, but like I always tell you- I don’t need the special treatment and would rather dress myself,” you reminded him and he sighed. You were oddly down to earth for a girl who’d been dreaming about Hollywood and its special treatment since you were a little girl. You always politely declined when Chris’ publicist offered you a prep team when you were attending an event with him; the only help you got was with your hair as you weren’t really good at doing hair.
“Which brings me back to my first question, why can’t you just get your dress in LA?”
“You know why I’m going to New York,” you retorted, trying not to smile at his smile.
The reason you were flying all the way to New York for brands and designers you could easily find in Los Angeles too- was because of Chris. You knew if you did the shopping in Los Angeles, he’d find some way to convince you to let him come along. Even if you disagreed, he’d find his way to the shop and peek in the window and see the dress and- well, that was very bad luck. So you secretly purchased your air ticket on an almost full flight and only told him about it the next morning, just as you were heading for the airport so all he could do was drop you off and nothing more. He wasn’t particularly pleased with your sneakiness, but he did understand why you were doing what you were doing.
“You know I’m just going to FaceTime you while you’re shopping.”
“And you know I’m just not going to answer your calls,” you quipped and he rolled his eyes, smiling. “You can wait until the wedding day like the rest of them to see my wedding dress. I promise it’ll be beautiful and completely worth the wait,” you told him then kissed his jawline.
“You could wear a potato sack and I’ll think it’s beautiful and completely worth the wait,” he responded with a chuckle and you smiled. “Just-” he huffed, “Dodger and I are going to miss the two of you so much.”
The moment he referred to the baby growing inside your belly, you placed your hand over your abdomen with a smile. As it turned out, you were pregnant- four weeks on Monday. It was exciting and you were happy, but you were still trying to wrap your head around the idea of being a mom. You weren’t even twenty-two yet, it was still July. You didn’t even want to think about the fact that you were going to be seriously pregnant when January came around and it was time for you to start work. Was Emilia, or any other production company going to want you when they found out you were pregnant? Would you become a liability? Would they force you onto the back burner until after you gave birth? Would you lose your story to some other writer? What was going to happen to your opportunity of a lifetime?
“What’s wrong?” Chris asked when he saw through to your mental anguish.
“Do you think they’ll still have me knowing I’m pregnant?”
“Who will still have you?” He asked with furrowed brows and you rolled your eyes, answering his question. “Oh, Emilia?” You nodded. “Of course she will, she’s a mom herself. She’ll be incredibly understanding and patient. Plus- you’ve already written the story and you’re slowly converting it into a script, all you need to do is handover and she’ll sort out the rest for you. Most of your job will consist of meetings. With directors, and crew members, and actors and actress. It won’t be hard, and it definitely won’t be something you can’t do while pregnant.”
“Okay,” you nodded, letting out a sigh of relief. “I was just worried they’ll push my offer back.” You told him and he nodded understandingly, wrapping an arm around you. “I want to be your wife and I want to be our baby’s mom, but I also want to pursue my dreams. If it works out, great. If it doesn’t, then at least I’ll know and I can focus on being the other two.”
“It’s going to work out,” he kissed your hair. “Everything is going to work out, I promise.” He squeezed you tightly against him and you smiled. “Okay,” he came to a stop and you did too, spotting the entrance to the departure hall. “You sure you’ve got everything you need? Like your ticket,” you nodded, “and your wallet,” another nod, “and your toothbrush,” one more. “And your very handsome fiancé?” You were about to nod when you realized what he said and laughed, playfully slapping his arm. “I had to try,” he shrugged, laughing.
“I’ll see you on Monday,” you tiptoed and pecked his lips. As you were about to turn, his arm looped around your waist and pressed your body flush against his. He dipped his head and kissed you deeply, smiling when he felt you smile. “Okay, sailor.” You giggled, pressing your hand against his chest and pushing yourself out of his grip. “I’ll see you on Monday.”
“Have a safe flight,” he passed you the handle of your luggage and you took it, waving as you walked towards the gates. You passed your passport and ticket to the officer, then glanced back and smiled when you saw him mouth, “I love my two babies.”
So this was a request by alisadelina that I wrote way too much for. Thank you for the request because, as you can tell, I thoroughly enjoyed writing it. The ending is the way it is because I did not want this to become too long. However I might turn it into a longer fanfiction.net story later. Enjoy!
Prompt: can you do a fanfiction request where you are a shield agent and you have to irregated loki and he keep flirting with you
Fury swept his fingers across the multiple screens in front of him. “How’s ‘real power’ doing? Does he want a magazine or something yet?” “No change, sir. He hasn’t said a word since you left.” Agent Maria Hill responded from not too far away. Fury frowned. They had managed to ‘capture’ Loki in Germany yet it didn’t feel as though he was truly a prisoner. “Want me to send Romanoff in, sir?” “No. Not yet.” He scratched his chin in frustration. Romanoff would undoubtedly be able to get results but something fishy was definitely afoot here and he didn’t want to deal his final card until he was sure he had the best hand. That being said, he wasn’t entirely out of options… “Hill, bring in Agent (y/l/n).” He said and the brunette nodded to him from across the room before strutting out in search of you.
“Absolutely not, sir. I politely decline.” You said with your arms folded.
I’m so sorry, @wrought-thought, the Tumblr App ate my replies again and then snacked on your original ask! All I can see of it now is this excerpt in my phone, and nowhere else. Fortunately I’d taken notes in my sketchbook that I can work from, because it was impossible to write and view the ask at the same time on my phone. After finally losing the ask itself to the voracious bowels of The App, I elected to wait until I was back in front of a desktop computer to try again. I hope you and others may find the reply useful heading into the new year!
The gist of the Ask was this:
“Christmas has come and gone…” (paraphrasing begins here) and I want to spend some money on art supplies. I have experience in other media but I want to try watercolors and I’d like your recommendations for paints, paper, and inks that don’t bleed.
My sincere apologies to @wrought-thought for butchering the original ask, I hope you find the reply useful!
Paint: I like to recommend Cotman watercolor sets for people who are just starting with the medium. They come in both dry pans (very portable and they tend to come with a decent small brush), and in tubes(great for being able to mix a large amount of a darkly colored wash, though you will need to buy a pallet if you get this version). The paints are inexpensive but very decent quality and you don’t have to worry about which colors to pick right off the bat.
Once you’re having fun and you’re sure you want to splurge a bit on some “artist quality” paints, I have been slowly converting my original W&N set to Holbein as my pigments run out.
Paint Shopping Tip: If you are looking to match one color of paint in two different brands, look for the pigment code instead of the name. Different companies give different names to the same pigments, and use different pigments under the same name. In example, my W&N “French Ultramarine” and Holbein “Ultramarine Deep” both carry the code “PIGMENT: PB29” and are the same type of blue.
Paper: My go-to is Strathmore cold press paper. It’s a good weight, and I like the texture/tooth on it. Perhaps most importantly, the surface quality has been very consistent from batch to batch for me. I have never had trouble with any water-based pigments bleeding into the paper fibers, and it stands up to a fair amount of abuse. I do not use any coated papers, like “vellum” or “mixed-media,” as the evenness of the coating will be inconsistant from piece to piece and it will always start resisting my washes in exactly the wrong place. I had a bad batch of this sort of paper once that cost me weeks of time to work around on a professional project. It was a nightmare. Never again!
Pens and ink: I don’t use nib pens because my hand pressure is too heavy. The sharp tips catch on the papers I like to use and make a big splattery sobbing-worthy mess. I use felt tipped liners like Micron, and round synthetic watercolor brushes to do my inking. For brushed inks, I’ve found that acrylic-based bleed the least, because the acrylic doesn’t dissolve as easily as some other binding agents.
Inking tips to keep bleeding to a minimum: Always give your ink drawing enough time to dry before you do anything else to it, including erasing pencil lines. To be safe with felt pens, let it be for five minutes. For ink, at least ten. When in doubt, wait a little longer. Avoid sharpies - they fade more quickly in the sun than other pigments and like other alcohol-based dye inks they will more easily bleed/bloom into the paper fibers.
Brushes: I’m adding this one in because I feel that having a decent brush is key to controlling your watercolors. A 6 or 8 round synthetic sable brush is a great place to start. You can do many paintings with just that one brush. My favorite inexpensive brand is Princeton Art & Brush Co. I prefer their series with the red handles.
On Overloaded Brushes: If you find that the paints feel a little too sloppy you may have overloaded your brush. Try letting of if the paint run back onto your pallet, and if they isn’t enough, blot out some of the extra on a folded paper towel.
For when sloppy is what you really DO want: While not strictly necessary, a large flat sable (1.5 inches or larger) or camelhair brush is great for laying in a large wet wash quickly. If you want to do larger work, it will save you time and frustration if you want to get the whole painting wet at the same time so that you can use salt, or do wet-on-wet blending techniques.
Once again, thank you for the Ask @wrought-thought! Happy Holidays and my wishes for a great New Year to everyone. :)
