thanks for the picture because i can't take pictures of myself

anonymous asked:

Mom, if its not too much to ask, could you do a story about Maggie having trouble dealing with a perpetually disappointed parent? Constantly being disappointed in her lifestyle choices out of 'love and worry'(style of dress, job, eating habits, etc.) and J'onn noticing and balancing it out with his own brand of space-dad approval? It's getting harder and harder to deal with my mom's disapproval lately. I feel like I can't do anything right. If not, I can wait for prompts to open again.

He only ever hears one side of the conversation, but that’s all he needs to hear to put the pieces together.

“Now’s not a great time, Pop, is Ma okay? I – yeah – yeah, I’m on duty. Yeah, Pop, I know it’s eleven at night. No, come on, I can’t do this right now. Because I love my job, Pop, it’s important, I’m changing the force from the ins– you know what, I don’t – I don’t have time for this, I gotta go. I love you. Yes, of course I do, why the hell would you say something like that? I – hello? Bye to you, too.”

Another night, this time earlier in the evening, the day after Maggie picked up Alex wearing a sharp flannel and massive smile, with a dozen red roses in tow. Winn had insisted on taking their picture, and apparently Maggie had sent it to her parents, because I want them to see how absolutely beautiful my girlfriend is.

“Hey Pop, how you doing? Aw, you did? Isn’t she gorgeous? I – it – I – I think I was in a flannel, wasn’t I? It – yeah, I know I’m not on the farm anymore, trust me, I know – no, Pop – “ J’onn almost doesn’t notice when Maggie switches to Portuguese, having known the language for so long the translation came to his mind just as quickly as the English did – “It’s not just a white girl look, Pop, plenty of self-respecting brown women dress like this, I’m not betraying anyt – well hey, you didn’t see anything wrong with raising me in an all-white town – no, I know you love me, I know you want what’s best for me – “ J’onn blinks when she switches seamlessly back to English – “but maybe what’s best for me is having you actually be happy for me when I send you a picture of me so clearly happy with how my life is right now, instead of calling me to just to criticize my – no, I don’t wanna talk to her right now, I – “

She groans and J’onn lowers his eyes and sighs quietly.

It happens again as she and Alex are gearing up for Alex’s first visit to Blue Springs, which has one of his girls wide-eyed and nervous, and the other both loving and terribly, terribly tense.

“Nah, tell her she doesn’t have to make me anything special, I’ll just whip something up for myself when we get there – yes, Alex will eat what she – because, Pop, I’ve been vegan for years, you’d think you both would get used to it by – well somehow I manage, and Mama is the one who taught me to cook, so if I can figure it out, I – no, you know what, you’re right, I’m sorry, I’m not trying to fight with you, just… just don’t go to any trouble, okay, I’ll work it out when I get there, I – no, I didn’t mean – yes Pop. Yes sir. Yeah. I love you. Bye.”

J’onn doesn’t imagine it would help his newest child much if he flew himself out to Blue Springs and gave Mr. Sawyer a piece of his mind.

And Maggie always slips off into a corner, whisper-shouts instead of shout-shouting, turns her face, her body, away when she gets her father’s calls. And she’s not like Alex, but she is, she is, so he doesn’t want to hurt her pride by bringing it up with her directly. Or violate her privacy, for that matter (though he supposes he can’t very well help what his ears pick up).

So instead, he starts doing small things, saying small things, that he hopes she’ll notice, that he hopes will lift, at least a little, the sad sagging in her shoulders; relieve, at least a little, the tension in her coiled lower back, her fists; soothe, at least a little, the burning tears in her eyes, the raging pit in her stomach, the defeat in her chest.

“You know, Detective Sawyer, since you started liaising with the DEO, our communication with the NCPD has never been better. The increased efficiency is saving a lot of lives; that’s a lot you have to be proud of.”

Alex is – nowadays, anyway – generally the one to blush, to squirm, to fumble over her words. And, true to form, Maggie doesn’t squirm, not exactly, but she stammers a bit and it’s clear she doesn’t know what to say, doesn’t know how to respond, doesn’t know how to feel, doesn’t know what to do with her hands, her eyes, her face.

So she falls back on her training, and she nods, and she says, simply, “Thank you, sir. That… means a lot.”

He covers her shoulder with his hand and she looks almost overcome by the gesture.

And then again, later, the next time he sees her decked out in flannel and sharp pants and a belt of the sort that he’s overhead Winn referring to as gloriously gay, he makes sure he smiles at her. He clears his throat, because if what he’s about to say is going to be uncomfortable for her, it’s even moreso for him, but that doesn’t matter, because she deserves to hear it from a potentially father-type figure.

So he clears his throat once, twice, and before she can ask if he wants some water, he forces out, “You look particularly sharp today, Detective. Agent Danvers is fortunate to have a woman as beautiful as you.”

“J’onn, are you hitting on Alex’s girlfriend?”

“Oh, leave the man alone, Schott, just because he knows how to compliment a woman better than you do,” Maggie quips through her smile ,through her deep, deep blush. She reaches up to put her hand on J’onn’s shoulder, this time, and he’s sure that as she walks away, it’s with a straighter spine and a prouder strut.

And when it’s one of the rookie agent’s birthdays and Kara insists on throwing him a little party, it’s J’onn who takes Maggie aside to make sure she knows that there are three different flavors of vegan ice cream, just for her.

“You know, when I first arrived on this planet, I was startled by how many human cultures emphasize animal flesh as their major culinary staples. Since then I’ve deeply appreciated humans who can see part their society, to a different sort of ethics.”

Maybe it’s because she and Alex didn’t get much sleep the night before, so her guard is lower than it might otherwise be; maybe it’s because J’onn’s eyes are as soft and as warm as his voice is awkward and gruff; or maybe it’s because her own father’s words are still stinging so sharply, so loudly, so painfully, in her ears; or maybe it’s all of it, everything, because suddenly Maggie is leaning up on her tip toes and she’s reaching her arms up and she’s burying her face in J’onn’s chest.

He only hesitates for a brief, startled moment before he wraps his arms around her, too, one of his hands covering the entire small of her back.

“Thank you, J’onn,” she’s whispering, and he catches Alex’s wet smile from across the room over Maggie’s head.

“Thank you, Maggie. Thank you for giving my girls – both of them – such happiness. We are all… truly lucky to have you in our lives.”

And now, if Maggie doesn’t know what to say, it’s because her body is speaking her gratitude for her, and J’onn nods when Alex mouths her thanks at him, because he means it; even in times like these, they’re still lucky, because they have, somehow, against all odds and probabilities, found each other.

My experience meeting Louis Tomlinson

So… I don’t know how I’m going to explain this, but I’ll try. (I’m sorry for my bad english, btw)

I was at home in pajamas, watching some geek videos, and then, my best friend texted me telling me to go and have dinner with her at the W hotel in Barcelona. I dressed up, and went there with her, and, by the time we arrived, we saw like a hundred of girls waiting outside, so we asked them why were they there, and they told us that Louis fucking Tomlinson was here with his step-dad. So we went at the bar for a drink while waiting for another friend, and, like 10 minutes later, a group of people in their 30’s/40’s came where we were, and Louis was with them. When I saw him, I didn’t realized that it was actually Louis Tomlinson standing in front of me, and I kind of freaked out. I was like “omg omg omg Alex it’s Louis omg I’m going to die”, and she was like “wow calm down”… nevermind.

A few minutes later, we went upstairs to the restaurant, and we saw that Louis and the others were there too, but like in a room for themselves. We had dinner freaking out a little, and, by the time we finished, we went out to the balcony to smoke, and 10 minutes later, Dan appeared from literally nowhere, and my friend was like “oh it’s Dan”, and I was trying really hard to not scream or something. So I checked my phone, and at the exact same moment my friend grabbed me by my arm and I turned out, and there he was. Louis Tomlinson. In the same couch as me. just beside me. I don’t know how I did it, but I actually talked to him like “hey how are u?”, and I tried to tell him to be careful because there was a l of people waiting for him downstairs (we knew that because this girls actually asked us to go and see if he was there), but, I mean, I’m half-french /half-spanish, and my english was sooo confusing, so he didn’t understand me well. But he was like, so so so cute, he told me “well… I don’t know what you’re trying to say to me, just, we’ll go step by step”, and my friend explained it to him, because I don’t know how but she could actually speak with a good english even if her mother tongue is french. Then, we talked to him like… we had a real conversation with him, talking about life, about what he was doing in barcelona, he asked us if we could give him a cigarette, we gave him one, we asked him for his lighter and he gave it to us (he told to my friend: “sure, love” :’) ), he tried to tell us some words in french, like, (joking), “ferme ta bouche” (wich is like: shut up) and I told him “well it’s better to say ferme ta gueule, it’s more… bad ass” (ferme ta gueule is shut the fuck up), and he actually laughed at it, then he checked what I was doing on my phone (I was trying to see myself ‘cause I had a bad face today), and he was like “wtf are u doing”… and then I don’t know, we talked for like 15 minutes more or less, and he was so so sooo sweet to us. At the beginning, when I saw him passing by, I was like “oh my god I’m going to die oh my god I guess it’ll bother him if I ask him for a picture..”, but not at all! He’s one of the sweetest famous people that I’ve met, really open-minded, and chilled out. He was talking to us like if we were friends, he explained to us what he was going to do, why he came here, etc. And I think it’s because of his behaviour that I didn’t freaked out and I could talk to him so easily, we were fucking joking with him, I mean, now I think about that and I just can’t believe it.

He’s also sooo much prettier (if that’s possible) in person, and not that small ;) and he seemed so happy. 

When he was going to leave, I asked him for a picture, and he laughed and said “I saw that coming”, and he gave my phone to Dan, and this guy…. he took a selfie… and then Louis was like “oh my god that’s a really bad joke”, and Dan laughed and then took the actual picture. Then they leaved, and Louis told us “Aurevoir!”, supeeer duper cuuuute :’)

I’m sure that I’m leaving some details in the story, but it was 2 hours ago and I’m still shaking, but the essential is here :)

If you ever have the chance to have him this close, just, be nice to him, I assure you that he’ll be just as sweet!

Here’s the picture :D

Oh, and here is Dan taking a selfie:

Paws Fur Coffee by @crispypata

He was so sure that Ladybug would already push him off a rooftop if she knew his civilian identity worked at a café called “Paws Fur Coffee” of all names (the owner is a dog person, but he’ll take it), but his flub on the chalkboard menu just topped it all off.

The dog was easily the height of his chest, and the young woman walking it could have only come up to his shoulder. But she was just cheerfully walking along beside the dog, chatting and laughing happily with a redheaded young woman. The dog was a big black beast—he didn’t know the breed then, nor did he particularly care, but it whined pitifully when its equally dark-haired owner paused to read a street sign. She just giggled and reached out a hand to ruffle its fur, and the giant’s tail wagged happily.

At which point the phrase “just desserts” becomes a permanent fixture in her everyday plans.

After all, who would say no to a photo shoot with Adrien Agreste!. But they only problem was…Ladybug was the one posing with the teen model. Since Adrien was going to be modeling new Ladybug and Chat Noir inspired clothing, it seemed only fitting that the famed super heroin would join him.

Marinette freezes in her spot behind the counter. Busy replenishing the tins of loose leaf tea for the more popular brews, she hadn’t heard the delicate chime at the front door. She turns in slow-motion to the shop floor, watching as the new customer starts chatting with the blond standing by the shelves. She hadn’t heard the front door chime, which means it’s too late-

Sorry, I want to ask you about tvxq's yunjae? I have you in kpop for 8 years and know what is real, she said yunjae real but jikook is not real (0% real) and JM and JK are straight boys, brothers. But if jikook real then master (jamjam, snowpeach,...) they know it? How they hide master?

Hello anon~

I’m sorry I think I have trouble understanding this a little bit. So you meant you had a friend who’d been into kpop for 8 years, and she told you that?

I mean… No one knows which ship is real except for the people who are directly involved in the ship and perhaps people personally connect to them. There’s really no way that us fans who just observe them, even for such a long time can know what is real and what is not. In relation to Jikook/Kookmin, I’ve pretty much stated my stance here. In short, even tho I ship them, my ship won’t be real until they themselves confirm that they’re real. I’m pretty much ALWAYS aware of that. So, unfortunately, I CAN’T tell you that Jikook/Kookmin is real and what your friend said was wrong 😶😶 .

Moreover, even tho I’ve been into Kpop for years, I’ve never been a stan of any SM group (no offense), I don’t know much about their personalities or their relationships with each other, so I can say nothing about DBSK. I occasionally watch SHINee’s shows (pretty much the only SM group, others are 2PM, MBLAQ, WINNER) but really, I’m not that deep in any other male groups except for Big Bang and BTS. I can just tell from my exp that I’ve never seen any relationship like the one between Jimin and Jungkook. I don’t wanna drag any other ship that is not related to this, but I can tell you briefly that Nyong/Tory and G/Top To/Dae are imo 3 of the popular ships in Big Bang, but I really don’t see that sparkle (of romance) between them. They’re as cute as any other ship tho. For me that’s what platonic/bromance is about :-).

You can have a look here to see the things that Jimin and Jungkook (mostly Jungkook) do that leave me confused and question their relationship. Again, no one knows if they’re real. But if they’re really brothers like your friend said (I won’t talk about their sexuality), they’re indeed EXTREMELY WEIRD brothers. No need to look to other groups, within the group itself, their interactions and the looks they share are already distinctive.

(ah~~~ you don’t know how weak my heart is everytime I see Jungkook’s heart eyes directing towards Jimin… 🐰🐥💞)

To sum up, I can’t say and I don’t know if Jikook/Kookmin is real, but no one can convince me that they’re just simply friends or brothers, sth like that? xD

Concerning the masters of fansites, well, again, I don’t know much about fansite stuff, since I don’t speak Korean. However, throughout the years, I’ve heard quite a few stories that some masters know things other fans don’t, and there have been circumstances that they also hide things from spreading out outside of their group (I can’t go any further than this, but these are related to other groups, not BTS, I’ve never really heard any about BTS fansites in general since I’m not connected with other ARMYs). If you’re interested in rumor too, then I also hear that there’re certain group chats talking about things like this (dating stuff), but I CAN’T confirm that it’s real. All of these are just rumors.

Imo, no one can verify if Jikook/Kookmin is real, even the masters of fansites, unless they do sth exclusive like kissing in public. Otherwise, if everything is kept within their dormitory, no one knows (unless stalkers install cameras in there, which I pray there’s nothing of that sort. It’s creepy as hell). Perhaps sometimes they do sth out of ordinary and the fansite masters happen to see it, but if it’s not as strong and obvious as a kiss or further, most people will just take it as platonic, what brothers/close friends do (like butt slap, backhug, etc. we usually see). Please note I said most people, including non-shipper ARMYs, but not some of us and me xD. That’s why sometimes I see some shippers worry about their ships being exposed by journalists because of their analyses, I wouldn’t be concerned that much. Since no journalist in their sane mind can write stuff from collected ‘proofs’ by fans if they don’t wanna be cursed at by the general public or even lose their job, UNLESS they do have a picture of the two (guys) kissing for real (for relationships between males and females, it’s easier since they just need to take pictures of them hanging out together on a few (special) occasions, but what can they make out of 2 males hanging out together without doing anything too intimate?). But that, by no mean, denies the moments we’ve had between Jimin and Jungkook. I’m really bad at expressing myself, I really do hope you get what I mean tho.

Same goes for the fansite masters, if they haven’t seen anything exclusive, then they can suspect, just like we do, but they can’t confirm it. But let’s just say even if they know, they can hide it (I’d do the same if it were me). If they love the boys, they will wanna protect them, and no one can blame the masters for that. There have been occasions where some fansite masters in general (not directing to any BTS fansites) close their fansites because their idols are dating, but if they stay, they deserve to be appreciated, because they love the boys for who they are, not for their relationship status. In conclusion, what I’m trying to say is that I don’t know if the fansite masters know, but I won’t be surprised if they actually know something.

Also, it’s not like the boys have to try their best to hide every single thing from everyone. Personally, I think there are certain things that should remain unknown, but otherwise, if we look close enough, we still see plenty of things, which the boys themselves let us know.

I hope I don’t misunderstand anything in your question, and you can vaguely have an idea what I was trying to say. I’m sorry that I can’t answer all of this clearly. Thank you for asking anyhow and hope you have a nice day 😊🌺

anonymous asked:

Favorite Janiel moments thus far?

Ooookay, this may take awhile! Haha how about I do favorite Janiel moments of 2016?
12 months of Janiel:
January:
-When Janiel went on that ski trip, and were completely adorable. Daniel pulling Joey with his ski poles…when Joey wanted to switch board for skis and Daniel put his boots on him (so cute how he tied his shoes and pulled his pant leg over them, it was so caring). Also, Daniel took a cute snap on the ski trip where he called Joey “Josey” and Joey turned to him in a really cute way, posing for a picture cause he didn’t know it was a video.
(Okay…this is going to be longer than I even thought).

February:
-Obviously Janiel confirmed.
-But also when Daniel took Joey on the adorable Valentine’s date. He made it so special (possibly because it was Joey’s first Valentine’s day), took him to the mountain where they had their first date, brought and spread rose petals, brought cute little valentine’s treats, it was so cute. Also, Joey making Daniel the freaking scrapbook, and Daniel giving Joey a Valentine’s card from the dogs. It was just really damn cute.

March:
-In bed with Janiel, for many reasons. Because they really seemed like they were letting their true personalities show. Daniel completely took charge and Joey was more reserved. The hand holding, oh the hand holding. Also, all the insight into their relationship, yes please.
-Also, I love the Bubble Wubble video because they seem so comfortable finally sharing their relationship on camera. It has Daniel’s iconic, “I’ll tie her up like I tie you up.” Also, Daniel filming and admiring Joey’s booty. Also Daniel looking Joey up and down and saying, “I just want to wash you off myself.” (Or something like that).

April:
-Janiel in Hawaii. Daniel holding the camera and yet again admiring Joey’s booty, and claiming it as his (I bet if Daniel was a vlogger we’d get comments on Joey’s booty in every video, haha.) Also when Joey tweeted about being a little drunk and Daniel responded “A little?” Lol. And we got one of my favorite Joey sleeping on Daniel snaps.

May:
-Joey’s birthday trip to Disney Japan, such a cute vlog! Daniel being so adoring, so many cheek kisses, Joey seemed so damn happy.
-Also when Daniel took the camera and filmed Joey, “Look at him, look at how cute he is, THE cutest!” THAT was the cutest!

June:
-I think my favorite moment in June was Daniel’s plane snapchat story coming back from NYC, documenting drugged up Joey and taking care of him, then Joey sleeping on Daniel’s lap. “Always asleep on my lap, my puppy.”

July:
July was an excellent time to be a Janiel fan. So much to love!
-Joey riling Daniel up and Daniel responding by kissing him all over his face.
The chapstick challenge. I didn’t even know I wanted a chapstick challenge until it happened (I was like “I’d rather see them kiss organically”), but it was so much better than expected!
-Janiel anniversary. Enough said? Haha. And Daniel’s snap video of Joey shaking his booty in the cutest way, “twerking to the wedding”.
-“Aw, it’s stuck in your hair, sweet boy.” (I swear, that one made my heart explode.)

August:
-Janiel on the plane heading to vacation with Joey’s family, being so lovey because they missed each other while Daniel was in Montana.
-Joey not being able to keep his eyes off naked Daniel in the pool.

September:
-Their interactions in the Gelli Baff video,
J: I need you to wash my face off please!
D: come here little boy, aw you’re cute.

-When Hope was taking pictures of Daniel, and Joey is just gushing about him, “That’s my boyfriend daniel, and he’s not and sexy, and he’s a model.”
-Daniel kissing all over Joey’s naked shoulder and neck in bed, distracting him when he is trying to talk to the camera.

October:
-The streamy’s, Joey’s little personal speech to Daniel, “I forgot to thank the most important person…” and then later them cuddling in bed, Daniel running his hand all over Joey’s chest under his shirt.
-Them being so adorable and couply ice skating together in NYC.

November:
-“Just kidding, I love you, you’re the best camera man I could’ve ever asked for.”

December:
The Janiel promise rings, how Daniel hugged and kissed Joey when they revealed Daniel’s, and how happy Joey was about his. ❤❤❤

McQueen

Ok, so I’m still in complete shock and awe about the whole experience (I met Dianna!), and I’m thanking my lucky stars for granting me the opportunity I got tonight, but I’m going to try and write as much about McQueen and Dianna as I can with my pounding heartbeat and fumbling fingers. 

I’m going to do this in list formatting because forming sentences and paragraphs seems like a foreign concept right now haha. If you’re not up for any spoilers about the play, I wouldn’t read further, but honestly I don’t think I’m going to give away all that much. I’m also sort of making this post for myself just to collect my thoughts and remember things! Ok, here goes!

1. Dianna was amazing. I expected her to be good, but she showed an immense amount of talent on that stage, and she made me feel things I didn’t expect to feel during a play about Alexander McQueen. 

2. She wears the wig throughout the entire performance–at first it was very odd, seeing her as a brunette with a bob-like hairstyle, but Dianna can pull of anything and within the first few minutes I forgot about her being blonde at all (almost!). 

3. Dianna is TINY! She’s the same height as me, which I knew, but it’s so different from seeing her on screen where she seems larger than life, if you know what I mean. Her waist is so small and she’s dainty and I think there’s a moment in the beginning of the play where McQueen calls her “fragile.” She’s adorable. 

4. She starts off wearing this really cool outfit (it’s supposed to be like modern-ish London so it’s a bit punk-y). She’s got on this miniskirt with black tights and converse sneakers and a teeshirt with a sweater over it. It’s really cute on her. Later on in the play her outfit changes to a dress that McQueen creates for her, and she’s elegant and stunning and so very Dianna. 

5. She says “fuck” a lot. 

6. There’s a scene where Alexander McQueen is making Dianna’s character (Dahlia) a dress, and he says “take your top off.” And she does. So she’s standing there in this little black bra and her skirt and she’s vulnerable and nervous and it’s the most I think we’ve ever seen of her (aside from the pictures of her in a bikini from an old photoshoot and one of her earlier TV spots). You could see her tattoo, which they didn’t coverup at all (the letters are smaller than I’d imagined). And she’s got the cutest stomach :)  

7. She cries a lot. The play dealt with some very intense, very serious topics–depression, suicide, self-harm, and I found myself crying through a lot of it as well. If you are sitting close enough and you look at Dianna’s arms, you can see red cuts all along her wrists and forearms. No one brings it up until near the end, but I noticed the second she took her top off, and I had this immediate reaction where my entire body clenched up and my heart sunk and tears started pouring out of my eyes. It was hard to see scars on Dianna’s wrists because at that moment she wasn’t a character. I was looking at Dianna and it was hard for me to see, given my own relationship with self-harm. Then I started thinking about Quinn, and suddenly, for those few moments, she was Quinn, and there was just SO much emotion. I left the play feeling very very affected, and honestly pretty triggered–so just a heads up for anyone who may be sensitive about that kind of thing.

8. It was not hard at all to separate Quinn from Dahlia–they are very different characters and it was exciting to see Dianna stretch her acting muscles and play something different. Of course there were moments where I would smile because she would do something that was just so very Quinn (when she was crying for one, and some of her facial expressions I could pinpoint to moments in Glee when she had the same expressions, some words, etc.) But overall, it was very cool to see her so differently. 

9. Dianna is in just about every scene, save for maybe one or two. There’s a scene where two characters are talking and she’s off in the corner “sleeping” and I couldn’t take my eyes off of her the whole time. But other than that scene were she doesn’t say anything, I think she’s really only gone for about one other scene. 

10. Dianna sings! And dances, too. The play opens with Alexander McQueen in a room, and all of a sudden from the background you can her Dianna’s voice singing before she appears on stage. She’s singing Billy Joel’s “She’s Always a Woman,” and she sings it a few times during the play. 

11. I think she’s developing a bit of a British accent, though that could be just her Bay Area accent melding into her character. She plays an American. 

12. Her face is kind of perfect. 

13. Aside from Dianna, which is primarily why I went to see the play, I truly enjoyed the production as a whole. It was inventive, creative, emotional, moving, and very well-done. I’m excited to see it again and get more out of the plot line (because honestly this first time I was keeping my eyes peeled on Dianna). I knew very little about Alexander McQueen going into this, and it’s certainly sparked my interest. 

14. There is no love interest for Dahlia. It was SO refreshing to see Dianna in a role that didn’t revolve one single bit around a romantic relationship with a man. 

15. There’s one line where she yells “I LOVE women!” and it wasn’t meant to be taken at all in any gay context, but I chuckled all the same. 

16. After the show ended I went out into the lobby and waited around for maybe five to ten minutes with a few other people who were there to see Dianna, and then she came out wearing a simple black dress and her cheetah-print fuzzy coat. Her hair was back to normal and I have no idea how it could be so perfect after being in a wig for an hour and a half. But she was stunning, as always. She stood talking to her costars for a while and then went to the bar to order some drinks. I made friends with a few of the girls who were waiting alongside me, and we all ordered drinks as well. 

17. Dianna came over after a little bit, she knew we were waiting for her and she was generous with her time. There were a few guys who came in as she walked over to us and were kind of obviously just there to get her autograph and leave (probably to sell them because this one guy had 4 pictures for her to sign). They were kind of getting in our way and Dianna turned to them and said, “I’ve got to take care of these guys first, because they actually saw the play and we’re technically not supposed to sign for anyone who hasn’t seen it,” and she turned back to us and was all smiles and “thank you”’s and she signed every single persons poster and took pictures with everyone. She kept asking “is that good? Anyone else?” because it was clear that she was very tired, but she didn’t want anyone to leave unhappy, so she took the time to do whatever each person asked of her. Everyone got a picture with her and whatever they wanted signed. After that she hung around the tables of her costars and a few other important-looking people for about fifteen more minutes and then she left the theater (she was the first to leave), and got into the backseat of a white car and drove away. 

18. I feel like the luckiest girl on the entire planet and I can’t wait to go back.

s10 coda based on this headcanon

Taking a break from hunting is nice.

Sam and Dean drive out to the middle of nowhere, Kansas, and just sit around drinking beer and hanging out for a few days. Dean is glad to be human again even though he’s embarrassed as hell about his behavior over the past few months. He wants to get rid of this damn Mark of Cain as quickly as possible, but he’s got no clue how.

So instead, he’ll just sit here with his brother and soak up the sunshine. He wishes Cas were here, too, though. It felt like he barely got to see the angel at all before he said he had to leave. Dean knows it’s too much to ask Cas to stick around with them, but…sometimes he wishes it were possible.

On impulse, he pulls out his phone and shoots Cas a text. We’re taking your advice. Wish you could take a break with us, though.

“Who are you texting?” Sam asks as he tries to peer over at Dean’s phone.

“None of your business. Drink your beer and shut up.”

“What’s Cas even up to right now?”

Cas texts back, I wish I could too. Tell Sam I said hello.

“How the fuck am I supposed to know?” Dean answers Sam as he texts back, Sam’s getting on my nerves.

“He should’ve come with us.”

“Yeah.” Sam has been getting on your nerves for as long as I’ve known you two. How is today any different? “Cas says hey, by the way.”

Sam laughs and takes a swig of beer. “I knew it. Tell him he should be taking a break, too.”

It’s not. Usually I just have a case to distract me from how annoying he is. He told me to tell you to take a break.

I’m taking a break right now. Hannah and I are in a diner.

Yeah, whatever, Cas.

Cas doesn’t text back after that.

ourpandaloverposts  asked:

Hi. So I'm a junior in high school and I seriously struggle on studying. I just can't focus. What would you say were your best study and note taking tips? Thanks :)

Hiya! Thank you for your question!
I’m so sorry for your struggles concentrating its difficult for me to get focused as well, but I do have a few things that I do to stay concentrated.

  • First - Take notes in class. They don’t have to be perfect, just jot down key points and main ideas your teacher goes over or says will be on a test. That way, when you go home or where ever you go to study, you know exactly WHAT to study, and thats extremely important. Which brings me on my next point….
  • Make your study-space efficient and clutter free (I tend to notice that a messy desk calls for a messy mind)
  • Gather everything you will need before you sit down and get to business, so you can avoid having to get up to get something in the middle of going over notes. This includes snacks, because snacking while studying always helps me, whether its just pretzels or some carrots, anything crunchy keeps me focused - it might work for you. (Keep water on hand too)
  • Make a good playlist to listen to while you study - if you can study to music. I typically listen to classical piano pieces or piano covers of modern music. If your phone becomes too distracting though, turn off your wifi or turn on airplane mode.
  • Start studying by writing down what you’re planning on studying. Planning is so important to stay on task. Assign certain times to specific subjects, and if you have a test or exam coming up, pay special attention to that particular subject.
  • To stay focused while you study, use the Pomodoro 
  • method. This basically is a cycle of 25 minute periods of efficient studying, followed by a five minute break. After four cycles of this, take a longer break (about 25-30 minutes) to prevent from becoming stressed or burning out.
  • NOW as to HOW to study, what I typically do is create outlines. I’m a visual person and so depending on what I’m studying, I make diagrams or draw pictures (terrible, awfully made pictures because I’m a horrible artist). Color coding your notes helps a lot, for example, the color pink is always associated with a vocabulary note in my outlines. An outline, to me, is using headings and subheadings to re-create and summarize what I read in my textbook. I write down key facts the my teacher says will be on the test and highlight it in yellow. Use little sketches and post-it notes (for additional information or revisions) Make them look pretty, because if you do, studying will be a bit more enjoyable. When I love the way my notes look it makes me feel encouraged to reread them and look over them - which you should do before a test.
  • The best study method I’ve used personally is teaching someone else what I’m learning (this method has a name but its slipping my mind). Teach someone what you’re studying, have them ask questions. If you can teach them and answer the questions, you’ve typically mastered the subject. And often times I don’t have anyone to do this with, so I just literally set a stuffed animal across from me and talk to it (I sound so crazy, but it helps me so idc) I think this helps me because not only am I a visual learner, but I am an auditory learner as well, so hearing myself go over the notes helps me retain the information.
  • What I suggest is invest some time to find out what kind of learner you are, there are tests you can take online that can help you figure out what way you retain information best. There are tons of studyblrs on this site and they all use different study methods, so just try a whole bunch out and see what fits best.

I really hope this helps, these tips are just what I do, and I’m a fairly good student. If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask! Some blogs I highly recommend you follow for some motivation are -

First time ever I had a photo op and an actual meet with Jared because he wasn’t at JIBcon last year. I was nervous but I was sure about the pose I wanted to have in our photo.

Jared: “Hi!”Me: “Hi, how are you?” It wasn’t my intention to ask him but I was panicking and idkJared: “I’m fine and you?”
Me: “I’m fine, but nervous!” at that point, he approached me and started to hug me, but I stopped him.Me: “No, wait! Can we take a picture in which we have like cheeky model poses?”

I’m so bad with english plus I was nervous, so he didn’t understand me andJared: “Like cheeky monkeys?”

and I was like WTF MONKEYS ?? WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT PADALECKI

And then he tried to hug me again but I stopped him again with my fucking hands because I always move my hands a lot (like really) when I speak and I was like: “No, no wait!” AND THEN GUESS WHAT

JARED PADALECKI TOOK ME IN HIS ARMS AND LIFTED ME FROM THE GROUND AND HUGGED ME SO TIGHT I WAS DYING. I WAS LAUGHING SO HARD AND I HAD MY FACE AGAINST IS NECK AND HIS PERFUME WAS SO GOOD GUYS BUT I WAS LAUGHING.

I WAS LITERALLY CHOCKING IN JARED’S NECK AND HE WAS HUGGING ME SO TIGHT I JUST

When he finally freed me, I was still laughing but I forced myself to speak.Me: "Okay let’s just hug.” Because I was in panic and I decided to give up on my idea for the pose and have a normal hug but NO,

Jared: “NO, no what pose do you want to do? Tell me!”

Me: “Okay, you know when models put on a face like this?” And I put on the face I have in the photo (meanwhile people in the line were laughing at us THANK YOU)Jared: “Okay, LIKE THIS?” and he actually did a stupid face and I was choking myself from laughing HIS FACE WAS PRICELESS

Me: "Yes, perfect!”
Jared: “Sure, let’s do this!“

anonymous asked:

What did Swarto say to you? I have been trying to find footage of it but I can't find any?

In summary:

- Hannah said hi to Lauren and myself when she recognised us in the Q&A circle round,
- Hannah said Lauren and I looked more adorable than she did which was a feat since we got up three hours before her,
- Hannah asked me what we speak in Belgium, then asked how we say ‘cheese’ ('kaas’) and said that doesn’t sound very appealing,
- Hannah said we had to get a selfie, took it and then told me it should be our engagement picture (excited about said engagement until she blatantly hit on Lauren; what a player),
- Hannah told us to stick around to get a picture with Sarah afterwards, because Swike had been escorted away by the police woman.

Fast forward to two hours later.

- Swike said “JAAAY!” and it was the best greeting ever,
- Hannah said “Okay, let them have their little moment there.”,
- I told Sarah what I admire about her and she was all “Oh, thank you so much!” and there were hugs,
- Sarah and I were taking a picture together and Hannah and Lauren were behind us filming for Lauren’s vlog and Swike looked at them when Hannah pointed out where her hand was etc. and said “Okaaay. Jay, you missed quite a moment there.”,
- Hannah said “You wanted a group pic, yeah?” and then Lauren and I got a few pictures with Hannah and Sarah, and then called me lovely when we hugged goodbye and told me to keep it up with the gifs.

Honestly; they are both so down to earth and lovely to the fans while being super professional as well. They handled that entire meet up so well, and I just love them even more than I did before. Best role models ever.

GOM + Hanamiya's reaction to discovering that their phone background has been replaced with a nude/sexy lingerie pic of their s/o, who just departed on a one week trip and sends them a text saying that they hope the boys won't miss them too much... (your blog is so cool!!)

Ooooooowwhwhhh risky reader-chan, I like you

Kuroko picked up his phone just to send a text to check if you’d landed safely only to discover that you’d set his back ground to a picture of you in nothing but a pair of thigh high white socks with baby blue bows at the top. He swallowed hard then read your text, oh yes he was missing you right now. It took him a while to get round to sending that text because he had bigger issues to deal with.

Kise opened his phone when he got to work and immediately slammed it shut, running back to his changing room to get a better look. Once he’d been able to take a closer look he let out a small whine “so meanssu… I want you now ____-cchi”. He was in the changing rooms anyway so he figured he’d return the favour and send you some nice pictures.

Midorima spent longer than he’d like to admit staring at the photo the first time he saw it, only he had to hide it quickly before Takao took a peek. You were wearing the nurse costume you only got out every so often and just thinking about it made his pants feel tight. He changed his background the moment he could but never deleted that picture.

Despite all his big talk and bravado about sex Aomine found it was a little different when it was you in such a provocative pose. But he wouldn’t be embarrassed or even try to deny how much this turned him on, sending you a thank you text after he’d taken care of business. “I can’t wait to show you how much I appreciated this when you get back”

It took Murasakibara a second to realise just what this picture was. You were totally naked, sucking a lollipop and then he read your message. “it’s not nice to tease me like this ____-chin. Now I’ll miss you even more”. He spent the rest of the day moping and pouting because he missed you anyway.

Akashi was pleased; it was actually something he’d hinted at to see if he could bait you into it and it had worked perfectly. The only problem being that he didn’t expect you to set it as his background, so it came as a surprise, and he didn’t expect to like it as much as he did. The more he stared at the photo the more he was considering giving you a little surprise and showing up at your hotel. 

Hanamiya growled when he saw your cheeky photo of you bent over in nothing but a pair of panties. It pushed him over the edge when he saw the text; you were teasing him! It was his job to tease you not the other way round. He immediately began planning revenge for when you got back and gave you warning. You knew you were in for a rough ride when you got back.

This maid of honor stuff is depressing me lol, like I actually want to deactivate my 1D accounts now. I'm so sour about it, I just can't understand why. I'm such a hardcore Larry supporter that I guess I never let myself entertain the possibility they'd go that far. It was her wedding & I realize it was her choice, I'm just having a hard time grasping why Louis would allow it to happen. His attitude lately speaks the opposite of someone who's willing to dig the lie even deeper than it already is

This is the last thing I want to say on the subject because I feel like we’re just beating a dead horse at this point. It also answers my other anon’s question about this. Here’s the thing. It’s weird no matter how you view the relationship.

Tyler Hoechlin is a Perfect Person ( or: my day at ECCC)

So today was the first day of Emerald City Comic Con and an eventful day for myself and my friend Raisa ( castielsleftbuttock). We toured the show floors, but things really began at Hayley Atwell’s panel. Upon learning she is the biggest theatre nerd ever and so many other wonderful traits, our love for her went through the roof. We would leave to get our pictures taken and talk to her more later, but I’ll digress and leave that to her to talk about (it was more her part of the day I suppose).
As we left her photo op, Raisa went to collect the picture while I SPRINTED around the area to get in line for Tyler Hoechlin’s photos (becoming one of the last in line and having almost missing it). I had tried to meet him earlier at his first signing, but he was unfortunately running late and I had to move on before he came. So I met him first at the photo op. And he was just perfect? Like people always say he’s great but HE’S LITERALLY SO PERFECT HOW IS IT POSSIBLE. He’s so nice and considerate, and he gave me literally the best hug I have ever had (it was warm and strong and ugh my heart can’t take this I’ll have to go through life knowing what real hugs are and how no one else can come close). He let us do our posing (which didn’t turn out as we’d hoped but oh well) and talked to us a little and I can’t get over how nice he was guys okay.
Anyway, flash forward and we’re sitting near the front of his panel next to a lovely girl cosplaying the Winter Soldier named Ellen. We talked a bit before Tyler came out. I won’t bore you with recaps as they are everywhere, but you could see he cared when he talked and wanted to answer and it was so nice (also I could listen to him talk about anything for hours his voice and face are great). Ellen asked the Greek mythology question, which was rad.
Flash forward once again and suddenly it’s his signing again. I just got some cryptic and unfun news from the hospital but I tried to regain my chill before we went up to him. This is all a bit of a happy crazy blur because I got to talk to him for a little while (not many people were in line) and ask him about acting and stuff. But he remembered us and answered our questions and chatted. I gave him a letter basically thanking him for existing and being awesome so that was stressful. But I made him laugh and he did his scrunched up face smile at me and I can’t even begin he’s so perfect and happy and great I love him so all in all it was the best freaking day ever. Tyler is literally the greatest person I have ever met and I’m so glad he exists and I can’t wait to see him again.
