Happy Birthday Charles Laughton 1st July 1899 - 15th December 1962
Rembrandt is his great part, his matriculation; full of the intimate moments that test an actor’s integrity to the highest…probably the finest acting performance ever recorded on celluloid. - C A Lejeune
Charles was both inteligent and gifted, with an instinctive genius for acting. - Jean Renoir
Apart from ‘Ambersons’, the most exciting experience I have had in the cinema was with Charles Laughton on 'Night of the Hunter’…every day I considered something new about light, that incredible thing that can’t be described. Of the directors I’ve worked with, only two ever understood it, Orson Welles and Charles Laughton. - Stanley Cortez
I have become a teller of stories. I would like to become the man who knows all the stories…When I go into a good book-store or library, I often feel sad when I see the shelves of books that I will never be able to enjoy. I think of all the wonderful tales I will never know, and I wish I could live to be a thousand years old. - Charles Laughton
Stiles is a bit of an anomaly among the Omegas he knows, or everyone on the spectrum really.
For him, heats are about comfort and safety, and not at all about sex.
[do you have any idea how much I love it when people explore different possibilities and variations of a/b/o tropes? this is omegaverse steter au, with ace omega stiles. you should go read it here. it’s adorable, it’s heartwarming, it has healthy relationship building and families of choice. it’s absolutely wonderful, and it never fails to make me smile.]
‘You alright there? Need any help?’ someone from behind him says, and Derek startles badly from where he’s been judging the tea (Cardamom with ginger for Sherlock Holmes? And almonds for Jack Harkness? Really?). The person laughs when he knocks over a few tins, and Derek knows that laugh. Sure enough, he looks up as he puts Moriartea back on the shelf and it’s Stiles fucking Stilinski, #24 on the lacrosse team and captain of Derek’s heart since he dropped Cora off at a game once, the cutest, hottest thing on the planet since – since – since ever, if Derek’s honest with himself.
A tea shop AU in which Derek is an editor, Stiles works in a tea shop, both are dumb, and there is tea.
wow i completely forgot to crosspost these doodles bUT if you haven’t read the abemiha werewolf au fic second skin you are really missing out. if werewolf aus were more like this i would be all over them it’s sO GOOD i cannot recommend it enough!!!
Okay, so Stiles lied about the whole abominable snowman alter-ego. But he didn’t lie about the seasonal part. Stiles could have kept his secret too. Until he had to go and become best friends with Derek Hale. And well, cats might be curious and all, but they’ve got nothing on a werewolf.
Louis, to his horror, attends an elitist university in which the name Zayn Malik means something, Niall Horan doesn’t stop talking, there are pianos everywhere, and Harry Styles, only son of a drug-addled, clinically insane ex-rocker, has a perfect smile and empty eyes.
“I mean, you’re–” He gestures at Cas, in his neat oxford shirt and nice pants. “–and I’m a high school dropout who tattoos for a living.”
Wherein Dean makes a hefty living as a tattoo artist who owns the space next to Gabriel’s cafe. Sam attends the local university. When Gabe’s cousin comes to live with him while starting grad school at Sam’s university, Dean thinks for sure that all his negative karma’s coming to bite him in the ass because Cas clearly has a thing for Sam. No one would ever choose him over Sam. That’s just logic.
tags/warnings: tattooed Cas, hipster Cas, some angst
“It’s not competition, Sam. That place sells overpriced coffee and tea, and calls it something fancy to justify the price. And they probably serve shitty, gluten-free, vegan-happy pastries that taste like sod, too. We sell doughnuts. That’s all there is to it.”
But that wasn’t all there was to it.
Wherein Dean and Sam Winchester inherit their father’s donut shop, some tattooed hipster named Cas opens up a coffee joint across the street, and chaos ensues in the form of too many pastry-related puns.

Dean Winchester is a kindergarten teacher. Castiel Milton is a writer slash works-in-a-coffee-shop. He also happens to be the extremely hot one-night stand that Dean never intended to see again other than in his own fantasies (he’s classy like that). But suddenly Cas is everywhere and Dean is convinced that Fate is out to get him. And maybe they do this thing backwards, but that doesn’t have to mean they can’t make it in the end, right?
“My number,” says Dean, because he’s a fucking champion, he’s cool, he’s collected, he’s Captain Smooth of the USS Smoothtania, that’s right. He is definitely not leaning against the counter for moral support. Cas doesn’t looked seduced or impressed, though. He does not look like a dude who just met Captain Smooth and wants to ride the loveboat. He looks puzzled.
Mélange de thés de Chine et de Ceylan parfumé aux arômes rhubarbe et fraise des bois. Parsemé de pétales de bleuet et d’hélianthe ce thé délicieux et fruité se prête merveilleusement à une préparation chaude ou glacée.
Mix of non-smoked teas from China and Ceylon, perfumed black teas with aromas of rhubarb and wild strawberry. Dotted with corn-flower and sunflower petals, this delicious and fruity tea lends itself to either cold or hot brewing perfectly.
I’m enjoying it cold, the rhubarb is bright and the strawberry softens it gently. The flowery aftertaste helps with giving body to a tea that could be watery but isn’t after all.
A good pick for the summer.
Writing Enchanted Forest adventures is the exact thing to sip it with.
It’s my father’s birthday, right after my step family’s matriarch funeral. Strange but so far away. Nature runs its course.
