Gen and Irene for the OTP ask thingy

Thank you!

shops for groceries: They alternate.

kills the spiders: Neither. Irene traps them in a cup and releases them outside. Eugenides is on “you don’t mess with me, I won’t mess with you” policy.

comes home drunk at 3am: I think we all know who does this. But in fairness, 50% of the time, Gen is probably pretending to be drunk (and Irene can tell, so she hits him with a pillow when he wakes her). And when he’s actually drunk, he tries very hard not to disturb her, or even just sleeps in his own rooms.

makes breakfast: I feel like both of them are lost when it comes to the kitchen (neither has ever had a need to cook); but I could see Gen making Irene breakfast in bed when he wants to be sweet.

remembers to feed the fish: Irene? I feel like Gen tries really hard to feed ot regularly and on time, but…

decorates the apartment: Gen makes threats to buy gaudy interior decor, but ultimately they decorate together.

initiates duets: Eugenides. But Irene is not as unwilling to join in as she might seem.

falls asleep first: That depends; sometimes Gen, sometimes Irene.

Why the Harry Potter fandom is important

Last night after walking down Regent Street and marvelling at the Christmas lights and how very much I love London(which happens anytime I walk around central London), I sat waiting in Leicester Sq. Me and my Hufflepuff fellow @andyouknowitis were off to see the midnight showing of ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’. 

After a little while, the scarves began to emerge. A girl sat down next to me wearing a Slytherin scarf. Later replaced by a girl in a Ravenclaw scarf. Two Gryffindors came up to me and went ‘Would you mind taking a picture of us? We saw you and thought ‘She’s wearing a Hufflepuff scarf, we’ll ask her’. Me and the two girls got chatting about fandom and the excitement for the movie and they wandered off. I sat back down and then two girls in robes walked by and grinned at me. 

A guy dressed as Newt walked by and jokingly cursed a group of people, more friends in scarves began to appear, wands came out, hugs were had. The cinema was crowded, full of posters and people squealing over them. In the very long queue for food, one guy found out how long the adverts were and I asked whether he was a Ravenclaw, turned out he was. 

Eventually we all found our seats, shuffling around in the dark trying to place drinks and popcorn, balancing the IMAX glasses and jostling for space. The lights dimmed, the Warner Bros logo appeared on screen and we all cheered. Here we were, one big nerdy family in the middle of the night about to experience new wizarding world material. 

The movie was brilliant, we all laughed a lot, we cheered and clapped and gasped. We marvelled at the beauty on screen and were so very aware of how much we just really bloody love magic. 

It’s been nine years since the last book came out, back when most of us were in our teens and  early twenties. And yet he we still are, smiling at the people in scarves and laughing in a movie theatre, nearly ten years on. Older and adulter but still very much in love with this fandom. 

After the movie, we wandered off to House of Minalima, a place in Soho run by the people behind the art of Harry Potter. We got to talk to them and look at all the amazing things surrounded us. The creaky, wobbly old house imbued with magic whilst the drunken Muggles cavorted outside. It felt like the Leaky Cauldron, hidden away in London at 3am. We chatted to Potterheads, it’s London, you don’t talk to random people but with this, how could you not? 

The world has been a bit rubbish of late, it’s terrifying and scary and a lot of unkind people seem to be winning. But we still have Harry Potter, we still have kindness and joy and excitement  and magic. We need that, we revel in it and thankfully this fandom ain’t going anywhere. In ten years time I’d still like to be grinning at people in fandom scarves like we’re part of a secret society. We got this Potterheads, we ain’t going nowhere.

Holy Night

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

————————————————-

Guys…. Can we just look into the fact that they used this song and such a beautiful rendition at that?

> ‘saviours birth’ – obviously this can refer to baptism and his actual birth. That night, Isak coming from the church where he was baptized. The fact he was born on 21:21 and obviously all the parallels and significance of that time with him and Even as well.

> ‘til he appeared and the spirit felt it’s worth’ – As some were speculating, Even definitely appeared to have been hopeless and felt worthless at that moment he was walking out of the school, and who knows what could have transpired that night. But Isak appeared. Isak came right on time. I’m sure Isak’s presence and simply being there meant the world to Even. On top of that, Isak’s reassurance, letting him know he is never alone. He is more than worth it. This love is worth it. This life is worth it. And I am here with you every step of the way.

‘A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn’ – the lyrics are obviously referencing dark nights and weary times that one may feel. In this song in particular, they are referring to the world being weary, life being hard - there seems to be no hope and that can definitely describe what Even was feeling and where he was at mentally at that moment in time. But the saviour appears and hope is restored. A new and glorious beginning.

In the words of Even….. “and you’ll save me right back” 

Yes you did Isak. Yes you did. On behalf of all of us, thank you.

ALSO, Skam again coming through with the most appropriate music choices for every scene. This show deserves all the awards.

Wanted to show off my amazing cup I got from a local artist at Wintergreen on Saturday.

This artist made a bunch of similar clay cups, all using medicinal herb leaves relief pressed into the clay. I hadn’t been planning on spending any money at the fair but came to a screeching halt when I saw these, and when I saw Bloodroot (one of my favorite local herbs) it was love at first sight. The artist was donating a portion of their proceeds to both the Standing Rock Tribe as well as Planned Parenthood. It’s so perfect for warming my chronically cold hands with hot tea. ❤

I would link the artist but unfortunately they don’t appear to have a site available.

“"All it took was one glance at that Keaton Mask he was carrying for me to realize that I was looking at my old friend. I gave him that mask a long time ago when he was just li'l Kafei. Didn’t know he kept it that well for so long…

Here’s the next in the Majora’s Mask commissions - the Keaton Mask!

anonymous asked:

You know the flower shop/tattoo parlor fic trope? If applied to tythan, I'm sure a lot of people would pin Ethan as the flower shop owner and Tyler as the tattoo artist but I'm all about that switcheroo so just imagine mildly tattooed blue boi going in to Tyler's shop for some cacti to liven up his parlor and he keeps coming back (for Tyler of course) and there's just oblivious!Tyler asking him "why do you need all these plants I'm concerned."

I actually haven’t heard this yet but let’s see what I can do with it :3

When Ethan was younger no one really pinned him as the type to have his own tattoo parlor, but yet here he was. He lived downtown and loved what he did, tattoos were his life. Shortly after discovering his passion, he dyed his hair blue and got a few tattoos of his own. Most of them were of video game or comic book characters, the things he enjoyed the most as a child.

It was a rainy Sunday, the best kind of Sunday in his opinion. With the lack of natural light in his shop, he realized how dull the place looked. It was a strange realization, considering there was art all over the walls and posters for local bands scattered about, but it felt like it was just missing something… That’s when Ethan had an idea.

He quickly donned his rain jacket and steeped out into the rain. The hustle and bustle of the sidewalk always took him back. People walking through life, not looking where they’re going, or even caring. It honestly disgusted him. Ethan didn’t have far to go, the place he was looking for was right next door to his parlor. He walked in and a high pitched bell went off, announcing his entrance to the owner.

Ethan had seen this florist shop a few times, but never bothered to go in. He never had a reason to. No one was at the counter, even with the bell alerting them of his presence. Ethan just shrugged and began looking around. Some cacti in small pots caught his attention. They were so tiny, bit would definitely do the trick. He grabbed three of his favorites and took them up to the counter, looking around for an employee.

“Helllooo,” Ethan called out to the empty shop. He considered just leaving the cash on the counter for the plants, but as soon as the thought came to his mind, it quickly left. Someone was coming. From the back of the shop emerged a tall male, probably older than him. He had a light pastel sweater on, that looked a bit loose on him. The males curly brown hair was topped with a flower crown, the looked as if it was made out of real flowers. Considering where he was, it probably is.

“Hey, how can I help you?” The man said to Ethan. He looked down at the Employees nametag, noting his name was Tyler. The nametag was also colorfully decorated with stickers. Figures.

“I’d like to buy these,” Ethan said getting lost in Tyler’s eyes all of a sudden, “please.” He added on, not trying to seem rude.

“Of course.” Tyler had replied with a small. It was weird, when he smiled like that, it made Ethan’s stomach flip. He hadn’t felt that way since high school. Ethan looked the other guy up and down. Well, he WAS attractive as hell, flower crown and all. Ethan decided to go for it, I mean what could it hurt?

“Thanks,” Ethan grabbed the bag from Tyler and reached for the receipt in the bag pulling it out and grabbing a pen off the counter. Tyler looked on confused. Ethan wrote on the receipt simply, ‘text me :) ’ and scribbled his phone number underneath. He handed it to Tyler who read it and immediately began blushing. Before he could respond, however, Ethan had already left the shop.

(TO BE CONTINUED BECAUSE HOLY HELL I LIKE THIS IDEA.)
