so why not make a photoset

charlottemaynot replied to your post “Do you think you might ever write Potterfic again at some point?”

The HP play is actually much better like… as a play. I read the script and was like ‘what is this rubbish’ but then i went and saw it, cos why not, and it was pretty damn cool.

Oh man, the play didn’t even ping my radar. I understand it’s a Butterfly Effect time travel au kind of deal. I was thinking more of the mediocre showing and poor worldbuilding of the Mysterious Beasts stuff.

did you make it to the nature center? it’s pretty neat

Ah no, that’s way the hell down the beach to the west, at least that’s what I understood? I was up at Dunewood, off to the east.

Wow, lovely shots. Looks like a really great place. (Randomly, for chafe, if you’ll grab some Arm & Hammer unscented stick deodorant, it’ll not only help your current chafe, but in the future a swipe or two in the offending areas will help prevent it._

Thanks! I think probably it’s more the material – I was in jeans, for lack of better options – because I don’t get chafe when I run in my designed-for-running pants. I just need to remember to wear the shorts next time, should lower the friction :) But I’ll bear the deodorant trick in mind!

I’ve seen calmer days on the Florida Atlantic coast!

It was SO WINDY and SO COLD. I am just now thawing out. A storm hit right as I got to the train station and lasted the entire way back to the south loop, where I had to hustle through it to my building. 

pringlesaremydivision replied to your photo “Found ADVENTUR.”

AAAHHH beverly shores is my favorite beach in indiana! did you take the south shore? isn’t the walk to get from the station to the beach stunning?

Yep, I took the South Shore, quite a smooth ride. The walk is certainly full of sights, though it’s very uh, flat and straight :D But yeah, it was a really nice walk. I’m guessing most of the Beverly Shores town I passed through is vacation cottages?

“O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou, Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name,” Mr. Rogers says, and about half the class sighs dreamily. He looks up from his book. “Can anyone tell me what ‘wherefore’ means in this context?” He looks at the array of hands that shoot up in the air. “Wanda?”

“It means ‘why’,” she says.

“Exactly. So she’s asking… anyone?”

“She’s asking why he has to be a Montague, versus any other family,” says a voice from the doorway.

Mr. Rogers looks up and smiles. “Right you are, Mr. Barnes. To what do we owe the honor?” He runs a hand through his thick hair and pushes his thick black glasses up on his nose, and a few members of the class shoot each other knowing looks.

“You forgot your dongle in my classroom last night,” Mr. Barnes says. There’s a chorus of ‘ooooohs’ from the students and Mr. Barnes shoots them a look as Mr. Rogers rolls his eyes. “It’s a computer part,” he says, holding it up for the class to observe.

“Nasty,” Tony Stark says from the back.

“Tony,” Mr. Rogers says, sharp.

“Oooh, you’re in the shit,” Clint whispers to Tony, who just rolls his eyes.

Mr. Rogers walks across the room to Mr. Barnes and takes the dongle with a smile. “Thanks for bringing it back,” he says.

“Not a problem,” Mr. Barnes responds, then gives Mr. Rogers a friendly nudge on the arm. “But maybe keep better track of your stuff, okay? You’re always leaving things in my classroom after practice.”

Mr. Rogers bites his lip and nods. “Sorry about that.”

“Nah, nothing you gotta apologize for. But I should quit interrupting your class and get going.”

“Okay. See you later,” Mr. Rogers says, and watches Mr. Barnes back out of the room and shut the door with such a look of pure, simple longing that it’s almost embarrassing to look.

“Oh. My. God.” Clint says to Tony. “He’s into him?”

“Duh,” Tony says as he picks at the edge of his worksheet. “You should see them during Scholastic Bowl practice. It’s gratuitous and disgusting.”

“Huh,” Clint says, looking up to Mr. Rogers, who is now blushing as he tries to move on with the lecture. “That’s funny.”

“Here,” Tony says, shoving the paper at Clint, “we wrote this after practice yesterday. The syllabic structure’s pretty mediocre but we had some fun.”

Clint reads:

Mr. Barnes & Mr. Rogers: A Nerdy Tragedy

Two departments, both alike in dignity

In fair high school, where we lay our scene,

From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,

Where class budgets make tenured staff ill at-ease.

From forth the fatal loins of these two foes

A pair of star-cross’d lovers coach the team;

Whose misadventures piteous overthrows

Do with their love bury their departments’ strife.

The fearful passage of their nerd-mark’d love,

And the continuance of their departments’ rage,

Which, but their teacher’s love, nought could remove,

Is now the two hours’ traffic of our Scholastic Bowl meet;

The which if you with patient ears attend,

What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

“Passing notes?” Clint nearly jumps out of his seat and sees Mr. Rogers standing in front of him, eyebrow raised. Before Clint can come up with an answer, Mr. Rogers takes the paper from his hands and starts to read. Clint looks to Tony, who looks at Clint with wide eyes. They both look up at Mr. Rogers who is turning redder by the moment. Mr. Rogers looks up at them, then quickly back down to the paper, and back up at them. He clears his throat. “I’ll be throwing this out,” he says, shoving the paper into the pocket of his blazer and walking away.

“He’s gonna read that to Mr. Barnes tonight while they bang,” Tony whispers into Clint’s ear.

Clint bursts out laughing, and ends up with detention.

Funfact: that photo of the horse-drawn carriage was taken by me last year on my travels around europe, in the city of Bruges. It fit this really well, so I thought why not use it? ^^

When you and Jackson like each other but Jackson asks you for your friend’s name to give to Mark. You misunderstand and think that Jackson likes your friend so you distance yourself from Jackson. Jackson then gets Mark to talk to you and Mark accidentally reveals that Jackson likes you after which you and Jackson confess to each other~

Guys. GUYS. This was originally 15 texts and I had to condense it because a photoset can’t be more than 10. Tumblr! Why you do this?

Lessons in Cartography by crazy_like_a

Nora mentioned in her extra content that Neil slowly maps out Andrew’s body and then this fic happened. Starts after The King’s Men.

Why you should read it: This is basically the Fourth Unnofficial Book ™ we never got. It’s smutty, but the sex isn’t there for the sake of sex. It’s about Neil and Andrew, about their relationship progressing, about Andrew learning to trust Neil with his body and Neil learning how to live a life he didn’t except to have… It’s great, that’s what I’m trying to say. It’s my favourite fic of all times in this fandom. Go read it.

WIP

Hazes by Spinsy

Their entire relationship could be viewed through a series of hazes - ranging from the sweetest of affections, to the deadliest of diseases - that broke down their carefully constructed defense mechanisms. When Neil felt the need to run, Andrew always grounded him to a home. When Andrew felt the need to self-destruct, Neil always gave him a reason not to.

For that, Neil will take on their difficulties any day.

Why you should read it: Andrew has a nightmare and hurts Neil one day. They deal with it. It’s very angsty.

we might be hollow (but we’re brave) by stttmsbwa

Andrew is looking to live his life in peaceful nothingness, but his new neighbor’s cat won’t stop sneaking onto his balcony. As much as he tries to not make it into something, Andrew finds himself drawn to the mysterious and tempting man next door.

Neil is just trying to find a reason to not leave Palmetto after everyone else has moved on. But he never thought he would want to run toward something in favor of running away.

(In a slightly different world, two people find themselves meeting in a softer setting and in just as much need of each other. A story about dealing with pasts, sharing secrets and a cat who is an asshole yet manages to charm everyone around it.)

Why you should read it: Neil and Andrew are neighbours, and Neil’s cat loves Andrew. It starts very cute and turns very angsty. Just one chapter left!

One shot

at the edge of what was by BurningFairytales

He flips Neil’s phone open and scrolls through the call history. It’s not a long list; his own name is at the bottom, then there’s a call from Nicky one from Dan. There’s an outgoing call from Neil’s phone to Andrew’s – that day they went to Atlanta – and one to a number that isn’t saved but that Andrew recognises as Bee’s.

And then there’s a call from an unknown number, no more than an hour ago.

He wants to call it. He wants to call it and demand where Neil is, wants to find out whoever the number belongs to and bash their head into a wall, break every bone in their body until Neil is back with them.

Why you should read it: It’s Baltimore from Andrew’s point of view, using all the headcanons Nora has mentioned in her blog. It will break your heart, but you will be happy about it.

Kairos by redketchup

In this life, Nathaniel Wesninski runs.

In another, he stays.

Why you should read it: It’s an AU about how Neil ran after the FBI rescues him from Nathan’s house. It’s beautifully written. It hurts.

coin toss universe by SashaSea

A sort-of AU that follows the professional careers and media misadventures of Andrew and Neil.

Why you should read it: I’d say it’s more of a Future Fic than an AU. It’s funny, it’s well-written, and I just love how Andrew and Neil fuck with the press. Remember those headcanons everything has? It’s here, in fic-format.

‘til it was near morning by Metis_Ink

When the days change for Andrew, they start at the beginning.

Why you should read it: It’s a very short fic (just above 1k) about Andrew reflecting on mornings and how Neil factors in. It’s just really lovely.

when king laugh come by SashaSea

Andrew sits beside a broken window with a feral smile on his face, and he beckons for Neil before locking them in. “I never,” and there’s a single hitch, a catch of his breath around anger and fear and – and then he’s Andrew again, a whirlwind of noise and motion but for once they take him outside of Neil’s reach and he tries not to notice. “I never asked? Do many people ask, Neil?” He finds the wherewithal to stub out his cigarette into the desk before continuing, hands grasping for answers in the empty air, but he sets his shoulders and leans into Neil’s space like they might be okay. “Really, tell me, in all the years of whatever this is, exactly how many people have ever thought to ask ‘Are you a werewolf?’”

Neil smells ash and smoke and wants to lean into it; the curls of nicotine in the air taste too much like safety. “Including now? You would be the first.”

Why you should read it: If you like supernatural stuff, this is for you. Everything is the same, except Neil and some other characters are werewolves.

Taengsic AU: Despite living in different galaxies, Taeyeon and Jessica somehow discovered a way to communicate with each other. The two quickly became friends and soon developed feelings for each other, taking long distance relationships to a whole new level. Being so much in love yet so far apart, they decided to depart on a journey across the universe so that they could finally be together.

So after about a month of doing nothing but working and playing Persona 5 (and maybe a little D&D here and there), this figure of the Persona 5 Protagonist went up for pre-order. While I was initially excited about it when it was announced at Wonfes (and when I recently reblogged a photoset back in early April), seeing the promo images kinda makes me not want to order this anymore. So I want to make a post explaining why I’ve lost interest in this figure, and why it’s not (in my opinion) as amazing as a figure as you might think it is…because I just beat Persona 5 as of writing this and I’m still not down from the Persona high yet.

For starters this is an ARTFX-J figure, by Kotobukiya. Kotobukiya has a decent history with the stuff they pump out, especially their bishoujo line, but the ARTFX-J line isn’t quite the best in terms of quality. I made a post a few months ago about the ARTFX-J Trainer Red figure that I bought in order to show this weird molding error on Pikachu’s belly, but on top of that there were subtle knicks and paint errors on the figure itself as well. That being said, the figure itself was still good, but maybe it’s a one time thing and I’m just spouting bs, but you can just look that the Trigun figures that are in the same product line and see the massive difference in quality. I hope that the P5 Protag figure won’t be the same as Red in that regard, but I’m not holding my breath.

As for how this figure looks, I think that it’s decent. The pose is dynamic and reflects the movement of the character in-game when running or winning a battle and transitioning to the victory screen. The base is neat, the bullet hole shattering glass with the Phantom Thieves logo beneath is a great touch, and the large mask supporting the base looks cool too. That being said though, the glass looks way too plastic-y imo. My main gripe though is the Protag’s expression. It is bland AF. I’m not gonna deny that nearly all of the Persona protags have had blank expressions (because that’s kind of the point when you’re naming and building you’re own rpg character, but that’s a different discussion altogether), but when you’re playing Persona 5 or looking at promotional images the protag always has this devlish smirk going on, like this:

or this:

This figure is gonna cost about $100+ and it doesn’t even capture the personality of the character. Shaking. My. Head. I think one of the most important aspects of a good figure is caputiring the right expression of the character being modeled, because fans of a given IP want to have a physical immortalization of the characters that they connect with. I’m getting a little too deep for a video game figure at this point, so I’ll just stop here and hope that I’m able to save some people money. It’s honestly not a bad figure in the grand scheme of things, these are just my own little dealbreakers. If you love Persona though, and you absolutely need a scaled figure of the Protag, then buy this so that you can support the franchise in the West.

dandylion240 replied to your post “goatkibble replied to your photoset “Oh my, Levi snickered as he…”

I hate to say it because I really do like Levi but he does have other similarities to Tobias. Like making a move on Archer when Archer’s relationship with Tobias was at it’s lowest. Kind of like Tobias did with Archer when things weren’t working so well with Levi all those years ago.

While I guess I agree with your words, I don’t agree with the point you are trying to make. Yes, that is happening. What is being dismissed are the bigger details like.. Archer had already decided that his marriage with Tobias was over. Levi isn’t “stealing” him away from anyone. This isn’t a relationship at it’s lowest; it is literally the end of a marriage. And technically, Archer so easily giving in when Levi is so unsure about Shane doesn’t make him much better. The difference is that not only do both Levi AND Archer see the connection, they can admit that it’s happening. And as selfish as it may be, Levi will even admit that he is getting some kind of thrill out of getting his man back after the guy who got between them fucked things up. Levi didn’t have to persuade Archer to cheat. Tobias fucked his relationship up all on his own *shrugs*

Support 500px and 540px Photosets in Your Theme

Intermediate HTML/CSS knowledge required. Some javascript knowledge may help.

This is a fix for photosets on themes until tumblr fixes it on their end. (For photos, see this post.) If tumblr make changes to their photoset code, this script may break, so use at your own risk! This code is THEME-DEPENDENT, as your theme must be designed to display both 500px and 540px width posts.

What this script actually does: It will take the highest resolution images available and shove it into the photoset. 500px photosets will stay 500px wide. 540px photosets will be 540px. If the photoset images are larger than 540px, it will scale down to 540px. There may be flickers, as the images load. This script may lag on pages with many photosets, so you may want to restrict this script to permalink pages.

Why you should do this even if you’re using custom user styles: this makes your blog prettier for everyone else, too!

    
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.js"></script>
<script>
  /* questions? ask oddhour.tumblr.com */
     var updatePhotosetCss = "<style id='updatePhotosetStyle'>  .photoset .photoset_row.photoset_row_1 img { max-width: 540px; } .photoset .photoset_row.photoset_row_2 img { max-width: 268px; } .photoset .photoset_row.photoset_row_3 img { max-width: 177px; } .photoset .photoset_row .photoset_photo { margin-left: 4px; } .photoset .photoset_row { text-align: center; width: 540px; } .photoset { width: 540px; }</style>";

    var photosetTimer = setInterval(updatePhotoset, 1500);
    $(window).on('load', function () { setTimeout(function() {clearInterval(photosetTimer)}, 2000); })
</script>
    

How to use:

  1. Add this script either before your end body tag (</body>) or in the head section (<head></head>). If you already have jquery on your theme, you don’t need to add that first line; just paste the rest after your jquery library. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, it’s probably best not to change anything.
  2. Update your theme. Your theme must be using the responsive photoset tag i.e. {Photoset}, not {Photoset-250} or any of the numbered variants.
  3. If your photosets display at the correct size but appear cut off, your theme’s post containers are probably designed to hold 500px width posts. You must update your theme so the post containers and columns are at least 540px wide. Themes vary, so you must understand HTML/CSS for this last step.

Note: if you want to just have all photosets at 540px (stretching photosets made for 500px), use {Photoset} and make your container 540px width.

Kushina…you’re the one…who made me the Fourth Hokage…who made me a man.  And made me this child’s father…!  And yet I’m useless…

let me tell you about pigeons

i’m in a birdy mood today, so i’m going to make a lil’ post about pigeons and why i love them

#long post ahead, press J to skip it if you like <3

This is a frillback! they are specially bred to have really curly feathers <3

these are jacobins! i think they look super pretty, like beautiful aristocratic pigeon ladies with frilly boas <3333

here’s another.

german shield owls! also known as old german owls, these are, actually, pigeons and not owls. :-P these are my favorite kind of pigeon, and if i could have any bird as a pet, i would have one of these. in the picture is a blue bar color variation, but they can also be brown, white, and many other colors!

also, old german owls are absolutely gorgeous. if people were birds, the angels would look like these cuties.

let’s talk fruit doves! fruit doves are the most colorful kind of dove or pigeon. if you want a bird with a lot of pretty colors, the kinds of birds i would recommend most are painted buntings, and fruit doves!

(this is a painted bunting, not a pigeon. i included it so you guys wouldn’t have to google painted bunting just to see it <3)

this is a wompoo fruit dove. doesn’t it look like christmas???

but claude, you say. why are you showing us doves when this post is supposed to be about pigeons?

well…..to be quite honest, that question is kind of like asking why i’m showing pictures of carrots when the photoset is supposed to be about vegetables.

here’s a fun fact! what we call a pigeon

one of these

is actually a different coloration of

one of these.

same species! columbia livia, the dove-slash-pigeon!

really makes you question why we consider one a sign of peace, and the other a pest to be exterminated. The only difference is that one’s gray.

Why do they make that trophy so heavy at Indian Wells? What if the winner got injured? Crazy. Also, I could not resist a little poke at the trouble GQ got into this week with Roger’s wonderful magazine photo shoot when they advertised it as a photoset of the Greatest Tennis Player of All Time. Which made social media clap back that the picture should of been one of Serena. LOL Who is the GOAT in tennis for you?

madness-of-a-broken-doll  asked:

Hi! I am planning on making at some point a Christine Elisa's dress, and I LOVE Broadway/Las Vegas design. So, I was wondering... which are the main differences between both? I almost can't tell them appart! Thanks a lot <3 Also, it'd be awesome if you could make a photoset of your favorite US Elissa dresses to have some extra inspiration >_< Thanks again, you're awesome <3

OOooOoooH! I join you in the love, especially the Vegas ones. 

There aren’t really any major differences between Broadway and Vegas skirts. Reason why I prefer the latter is because they were brand new, very fresh looking, and very proportionally “right” to the wearers. The Broadway ones are equally rich, but often quite vintage and worn, and also often re-tailored a couple of times to fit different wearers. Sometimes that shows. 

I’ve actually made two replicas of the US skirts. Inspiration was a mix of Vegas, Broadway and US Tour, all showing the same basic skirt execution, but some with shorter aprons, different backdrapes etc. Here’s the two skirts: 

Albeit I made them some years apart, I used the same materials in them. The place where I bought the green and the red/gold brocades had more in stock, and I rather liked the materials. But the details are somewhat different, especially the tabs and the belt area. 

I’ll be happy to make you a photoset of my favourites! Just gotta get back on my own computer first :)
