Who could have predicted that the mousy, meek and easily dominated woman we first met washing clothes in the quarry back in season one would become the tough-as-nails and utterly ruthless character we know in the sixth?
Admittedly, we saw early signs of Carol Peletier having a backbone when she stood up to violent hubby Ed over daughter Sophia, and got a further hint when she angrily mutilated his corpse with a pickaxe after he dies in a walker attack.

But McBrides Carol has followed a truly satisfying arc on the post-apocalyptic series, making her arc one of the most interesting characters on TV.
And, thanks to her appeal, one of the few surviving cast members from the early episodes.
Since then, we’ve seen her emerge, as a truly harder woman, the cataclysm seemingly having brought out both the best and, for a time, the very worst in her, with Carol exiled for a season after controversially yet mercifully ending the life of two people during the season four stint at the prison.
She’s since been allowed back with the others, showing her mettle time and time again, and emerging as the toughest baker of cookies currently in zombie TV, though admittedly there isn’t much competition on that front.

McBride infuses her with real charm and spirit and though she has on occasion fallen victim to the silly decision-making process that affects the characters, she’s continued to change and adapt.
Plus she [Carol] has a close bond with Daryl, and their friendship is one of the highlights of the show, whenever they share the screen, such as in season five’s “Consumed”, an intimate, melancholy episode that sees them confronting their issues and their growth so far.
Long may she fight!

one of the first things I saw when returning to tumblr after my stint of not having wifi was a bunch of stuff about how we shouldn’t colonize space because as leftists we should be committed to restricting humanity to earth or something and that to me is now going to just exemplify what being on this website is like

Darth Vader’s brief stint at being a father was a way better relationship than my mother’s seventeen years with me.

Think about that.

I don't know if you're already doing this (feel free to ignore either way!), but if you're doing catch-up, it might be good to set up a queue! That way you won't risk people being overwhelmed, and will also have a better chance of followers in different time zones seeing the updates! :) Good luck running it~!

Thanks for the suggestion! I’m pretty sure I’ll have to set one up inevitably, especially if I intend on reposting a lot of the older card sets, and it’d probably help me seem more active in the long run instead of having short stints of updating…. either way, I hope to find a way to go about all this as efficiently as possible and I really appreciate the kind words!

Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing Up - September 13, 2016 release

Funny and deeply personal, Sorry Not Sorry recounts Glee star Naya Rivera’s successes and missteps, urging young women to pursue their dreams and to refuse to let past mistakes define them.

Navigating through youth and young adulthood isn’t easy, and in Sorry Not Sorry, Naya Rivera shows us that we’re not alone in the highs, lows, and in-betweens. Whether it’s with love and dating, career and ambition, friends, or gossip, Naya inspires us to follow our own destiny and step over–or plod through–all the crap along the way. After her rise and fall from childhood stardom on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Family Matters, barely eking her way through high school, a brief stint as a Hooters waitress, going through thick and thin with her mom/manager, and resurrecting her acting career as Santana Lopez on Glee, Naya emerged from these experiences with some key life lessons:

Sorry: - All those times I scrawled “I HATE MY MOM” in my journal. Moms and teenage daughters will never get along–we just have to realize it’s nothing personal on either side.
- At-home highlights and DIY hair extensions. Some things are best left to the experts, and hair dye is one of them.
- Falling in love with the idea of a person, instead of the actual person.
Not Sorry: - That I don’t always get along with everyone. Having people not like you is a risk you have to take to be real, and I’ll take that over being fake any day.
- Boob job. People have a lot of opinions about plastic surgery, but more than 10 years after I got my boobs, they still make me happy when I look in the mirror. It might have been the best $8K I’ve ever spent.
- Getting my financial disasters out of the way early–before I was married or had a family–so that the only credit score that I wrecked was my own.

Even with a successful career and a family that she loves more than anything else, Naya says, “There’s still a thirteen-year-old girl inside of me making detailed lists of how I can improve, who’s never sure of my own self-worth.” Sorry Not Sorry is for that thirteen-year-old in all of us.

The book has 240 pages and the hardcover version will have a cost of $26, while the Kindle edition is set at $12.99

“I don’t think any child out there should be brought up in that type of environment. In the past, I’ve hated it. It’s just inside me hate, and I can’t get away from it.” - Henry Lee Lucas

Henry Lee Lucas’ childhood can only be described at hellish. Born to Viola and Anderson Lucas, the poverty stricken family supported themselves by selling pencils, skinning minks, prostitution and the distilling and distributing bootleg alcohol. Lucas was abused and beaten by both his parents and was forced to feed himself by stealing or picking through rubbish bins or he would go without. The only time he ever had hot meals was when his school teacher provided them for him or during his stints in jail. By age ten he was addicted to the alcohol his father taught him to produce and engaging in sex acts with animals and his half brother. He stated he preferred it when the animals were dead as there was no way they could resist him. 

Lucas had his left eye removed after his brother accidentally slashed him with a knife. His mother refused to have it treated resulting in it festering and being replaced with a glass eye. Lucas was convicted of eleven murders and died of heart failure on the 12th of March, 2001.

It’s Valentine’s Day and once again they are celebrating at a fancy local restaurant. As is tradition this place employs a live jazz band but the once intimate harmony of instruments has become a somber collection of guilty beats who mesh together, although beautifully, now out of obligation.

The meals have filled them to content but a portion remains on their plates. You can see it has been constantly picked at, and if they were to taste it they would feel the once sizzling plates have gone cold, only being heated now by the lone flickering candle light between them. He looks up at her, she at he. An exchange of brief smiles as their gaze shifts past each other to the other couples in vibrant lighting and lovely conversations. 

The thought enters: Have we become the dining the dead? What am I missing?

Over the past year or so, Gallant has gone onto prove why he’s one of the most exciting singers around. Having released a number of stellar releases in the lead up to 2016, the crooner is set to set the scene aflame with his debut album which is now finished and should be dropping later this year. Before that though, we’re treated to “Skipping Stones”, a stunning duet between Gallant and Jhene Aiko. Together, Gallant’s effortless falsetto and Aiko’s soft, graceful musings are a match made in heaven as they rise over the grand instrumental laid down by Adrian Younge and Stint. Just in time for Valentines Day, as part of the Red Bull Sound Select, listen to the track above…

“I see beauty, and I see myself destroying it. I’m sorry.”

My good friend and I had been intimate for a few months following a bad breakup I had. Unfortunately… he’s engaged. During our brief stint, I ended up having a miscarriage and was completely devastated. I fell in love with him, and even though he said he loved me too, he wouldn’t leave his fiancé who he claimed to be unhappy with. I know I’m better off without him, but I so badly wish that things were different… and I wish that I never lost our baby. I still blame myself.


FHM Sexiest Summer Salvo last May 29 at Newport Performing Arts Theatre. One of my events last May that I fail to upload because I don’t have decent photos. (Not that the photos are indecent.. haha!) Some of the photos were grabbed from Allan Altera. He’s the Project Head of this event and he hired me as Talents Coordinator for the segment models. 

Just like old times.. Haha!

Cheers to more events!

Von Winterfeldt was chopped to bits by sabres in 1757 in the skirmish of Moys, a remarkably terrible end for a brilliant man who had been one of the few to which Frederick the Great held back nothing. Upon hearing of his death, the King of Prussia remarked I will never find another Winterfeldt; he was a good man, a soulful man; my friend. 

Born in Vanselow Castle in Swedish Pomerania, he soon attracted the attention of Frederick William after a stint in his uncle’s cuirassier regiment, and before long, he was acting as an aide-de-camp to the king. During this time, he became a close friend of the crown prince, a difficult task, considering his estranged relations with his father. After Frederick the Great’s accession to the throne, he experienced a great increase in power, following a string of military successes, notably at Mollwitz and Hohenfriedberg, much to the jealousy of older men like Zieten. After the second war, he spent the ten years of peace involved in a number of confidential missions, and won the Order of the Black Eagle and the Order Pour le Mérite.

but in the end the haters got to him, and after his death, both Prince William and Prince Henry released extraordinarily impassioned accounts of his dishonesty. 

The truth was that he was a measured, thoughtful, remarkably undaunted man with a big vision (a united Germany under a Protestant emperor) and one of Frederick the Great’s best buddies…

We’ve had a few months now since the mid season finale of OUaT and @anothershadeofgreen and I thought it could be fun to look through some old interviews, and do a lil bit of speculation on current filming and PR.

Interesting! Dumb positivity all the way baby!

Horowitz dished of season five. “When someone you care about and love is facing adversity, that brings out the best in those who care about you.”

The best was brought out in those who love you.

Which means those that love Emma are those we saw being their best selves. 

Well, that was definitely not H00k. He literally became his worst self, and before that he spend most of his time yelling at everybody, taking credit for other’s work and endangering Henry. 

Not super impressed with Snowing either. Charming had a little too much focus on recapturing his college days with bros and ‘shrooms, and Snow was a lil bit too invested in H00k, and C$, before Emma. Also, they had a short stint with some drugs that made them evil. That was unfortunate. Loved the con tho!

Regina. Regina managed to get them all to Camelot, figure out what needed to be done both times in Storybrooke and in Camelot, protect Emma’s identity, help Emma help Merlin, etc. Of course she failed a few times, but she did the best she could with the best intentions in mind. And she almost made it without breaking down in tears.

As a side note, Emma as her darkest self, was still a better self with Regina than h00bystank #2 was. 

Rumbelle got to show some of their best selves with and for each other.

“Camelot is a place to fall in love,” Kitsis added. “And I think we’re going to see some really romantic and hopeful moments throughout the year as well.”

True dat

Remember when Gold proposed with the dagger to Belle? Also remember the saying “Love is giving someone the power to hurt you and trust they won’t?”

Ahh, good times.

Okay you get the idea. Check out this post for more 5A SQ feels

“This year she has to deal with the fact that every time she ever told someone she loved them or kissed them, they died. Hook is there because we know he’s a good survivor. So I think that it is very hard to let your guard down and make yourself more vulnerable, and that we’re going to explore with Hook and her this season.”

First half of that sentence was covered in season 4, Emma and H00k basically had that exact conversation shortly before Emma asked H00k out. So the only way that is relevant is to tell us that she kept her distance to someone else to protect them, or we’re supposed to be reminded of how C$ began. Maybe both. Both is more fun.

Next part is even better. A & E themselves brought up Emma’s walls and exploring how H00k felt about them when Emma let herself be vulnerable. They brought this up before we knew it had meaning, so we were supposed to notice this scene.

H00k: You need something, Dark One. Tell me what it is.

Emma: All I need is your trust. I promise. 

H00k: I liked you the way you were. I liked your walls. I liked being the one to break them down. 

Emma: The person you found inside is still me. I have a question for you for once. Do you love me? If you tell me you don’t love me, I will let you go. 

H00k: I loved you. I guess I’m either steering home or swimming home. Tell me which. 

Emma: The ship’s yours.

Emma was vulnerable and he dismissed her, reduced her to DO, spoke about her walls, took back his love, and then she gave him back his ship. The reason they started was because he traded his ship in exchange for Emma. Message couldn’t be more clear.

But really, what A & E gave us in that sentence, was the beginning and end of C$.

“I think episode two has romance blowing through its veins.”

Yes it truly did. I don’t know which moment I loved more; Regina’s quivering chin when she said “home” and looked at Emma. Or when she looked at Emma with heart eyes doing her descend of the stairs. Or when she was looking at Emma when everyone was dancing to “Only You”. Maybe it was when Emma said she’d pay the price for Robin and the magic she used. Or was it when Emma left the tower and looked back at Regina and Regina looked back at Emma.

"Emma and Regina have a relationship that has grown and now, into its fifth season, it has become a really strong and intense relationship,” "And what I think is so great about their friendship and relationship is that we’re seeing how it brings out different sides of each other.”

Strong and intense relationship, and great relationship and friendship that brings out different sides of each other. Interesting distinction. And it stayed throughout 5A.

“We can say that we are going to set it up in the first half, but we are really going to be doing it in the second half. We like to plant the seed and let it grow, so people have to know it’ll be in the second half of the season.”

About the lgbt romance. We’ve discussed lots why/why not it could and couldn’t be specific pairings. But I’ll refer back to my earlier reminders of Swan Queen moments in 5A and call them “seeds”.

Now. Following spoilers there seems to be extremely little Jmo and Lana filming happening. That we know of. I think I’ve heard of one? SQ scene and a few together with others. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. On the contrary, if you want to keep your storyline a secret, it’s gonna happen in studio on closed sets. 

Official twitter is still busy keeping all the C$ fans, and if they’re focusing still on keeping that fandom, then they’re confident the show will keep everyone else. 

However much we want a confirmation on what they’re doing with their show, we won’t get it. That’s not how you do tv. You don’t spoil your entire plot and storyline, and you don’t tell endings. 

Show, don’t tell. So we’ll have to wait and see.

hi-thisiskristin asked:

Will it be possible to meet you when you come to Florida for Disney World?! I would TOTALLY use one of my last tickets to meet you. I studied you on YouTube for my Eponine audition @ a local theatre, I nailed my dream role, and had the time of my LIFE!!! I'm sad I could never ever have the opportunity to hear you sing as Eponine, but I'm such a HUGE fan and it would be the biggest dream to meet you!!! Would it be possible?!?!

Unfortunately, Pete and I aren’t doing any meet ups whilst we’re in Florida! We’ve both just finish long stints in quite demanding jobs and we’re headed to Disney to retreat from the world and have a romantic getaway together! I’m sure there will be other opportunities for you and I to meet! Very sorry and congratulations of nailing your dream role!!! <3 


so it just occurred to me

Fushimi stayed in HOMRA for roughly a year and a half. Fushimi once fell to the ground, shaking, at seeing mikoto enter a fight so even if the reason for fushimi’s dislike/fear for his leader is not perceivable, it was no less real for him. And putting the king aside, he didn’t feel at ease with the rest of the clan either. And he still stayed. For over a year

During his stint in HOMRA, Fushimi was distant, bitter, unhappy, but let it never be said he was disloyal or uninvolved. Fushimi is dedicated in whatever he’s doing. It’s part of his character. He took part in every job he was asked to take part in (and some that he wasn’t) and he never once did anything to hurt HOMRA while he was there. In fact, although his methods were often a bit too drastic for the others, he oftentimes took initiative to protect the clan and weighed in on conversations, despite hating to speak up, only to point out when something would bring the clan trouble. He even once asked whether or not a preemptive strike on Scepter 4 would save HOMRA some headaches down the road. And while I think he definitely is just someone who doesn’t half-heartedly do things, he actually admits to himself once that


And he stayed in HOMRA, hating it, for about a year and a half. Like I said, it probably wasn’t all because of yata, but that even a part of why he stayed somewhere that disagreed with him in almost every way was because of yata speaks volumes about how much he valued yata as a friend and as a person. As a friend he wanted to stay with him, and as a person, he basically admits in that quote that he values yata’s love for HOMRA over his own discomfort. Furthermore, not all HOMRA members worked so closely to mikoto, only the ones who were very loyal and visited the bar regularly. Fushimi was a part of the main gang when he was there. He couldn’t even breathe around mikoto, but he kept coming back with yata and he kept contributing. I’ve said multiple times that however he felt (jealousy, fear, etc.), fushimi never tried isolating yata or hurting HOMRA. In fact, while he was there, he had to keep reminding yata to keep his head or risk hurting HOMRA without meaning to. Meaning that, despite his own feelings, he tried his very best to keep HOMRA at its best because it made yata happy (and meanwhile suppressed his own emotions with a vengeance).  

I will actually fight anyone who tries to tell me fushimi didn’t try for yata. They both tried to keep their relationship and they both failed, but that doesn’t negate the fact that they tried. Yes, fushimi chose to leave HOMRA but I’d just like to remind everyone that he tried to stay first.
