the contact sessions

okay but we need to give a round of applause for taylor nation. think about all the hours they put in to organize secret sessions, contact fans, checking emails, arranging phone calls, time slots, locations, for multiple sessions, for hundreds of fans, ensuring confidentiality, and who knows what else. it probably takes so much time, effort and energy and they’re doing this to make so many fans dreams come true. its probably a lot of work and I just think they deserve some ultimate recognition for all the hard work they’ve put in, simply for fans to meet taylor, its fucking magical. 

I know a lot of you feel like Taylor will never notice you or has forgotten about you (including myself sometimes), but we all have to remember that just because Taylor hasn’t followed you or liked one of your posts in a while doesn’t mean she hasn’t noticed you or that she’s forgotten about you. Most of the people who went to this secret session are saying that have never been “noticed” by Taylor before they were contacted about the session and that should give you hope. Taylor sees everything. On every social media platform. She sees you. She knows you. She loves you. 💕

You were busy singing along to your music blasting from your radio as you put your dishes away in the cupboards. You weren’t exactly the best singer but you weren’t the worse but you were sure your neighbors were used to it.

Even though you lived mostly by yourself you liked  to be lazy and wait a while to do the dishes so when you did you had a lot to put away. You did occasionally have your boyfriend sleep over but he didn’t exactly eat human food.

He was strictly carnivourious so all he ate was meat and usually he didn’t like to use a plate. You heard a loud knock on your door and you turned down your radio. When you walked over to the window sure enough when you looked through a rain dotted window it was your one and only boyfriend himself.

Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

Ya know the 6 foot tall one that is an alien that lives in the sewers and eats children. Well when he is unsuccessful he comes to your place where you make him human food.

An American lobbyist for Russian interests who helped craft an important foreign policy speech for Donald Trump has confirmed that he attended two dinners hosted by Jeff Sessions during the 2016 campaign, apparently contradicting the attorney general’s sworn testimony given this week.

Sessions testified under oath on Tuesday that he did not believe he had any contacts with lobbyists working for Russian interests over the course of Trump’s campaign. But Richard Burt, a former ambassador to Germany during the Reagan administration, who has represented Russian interests in Washington, told the Guardian that he could confirm previous media reports that stated he had contacts with Sessions at the time.

“I did attend two dinners with groups of former Republican foreign policy officials and Senator Sessions,” Burt said.

Asked whether Sessions was unfamiliar with Burt’s role as a lobbyist for Russian interests – a fact that is disclosed in public records – or had any reason to be confused about the issue, Burt told the Guardian that he did not know.

Several media reports published before Trump’s election in November noted that Burt advised then candidate Trump on his first major foreign policy speech, a role that brought him into contact with Sessions personally.

Burt, who previously served on the advisory board of Alfa Capital Partners, a private equity fund where Russia’s Alfa Bank was an investor and last year was lobbying on behalf of a pipeline company that is now controlled by Gazprom, Russia’s state-controlled energy conglomerate, first told Politico in October that he had been invited to two dinners that were hosted by Sessions last summer, at the height of the presidential campaign.

Sessions, a former senator for Alabama who was chairman of the Trump campaign’s national security committee, reportedly invited Burt so that he could discuss issues of national security and foreign policy.

When John McCain, the Republican senator from Arizona who is a frequent critic of Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin, asked Sessions in a hearing this week before the Senate intelligence committee about whether the attorney general had ever had “any contacts with any representative, including any American lobbyist or agent of any Russian company” during the 2016 campaign, Sessions said he did not.

It’s All Fun & Games (pt. 4)

( ‘till somebody loses their mind )

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Drabbles

Summary: In which you and Jungkook attempt to fake a relationship for revenge and end up with a lot more than either of you expected.
Genre: Angst/Fluff, Fake Dating!AU
Word Count: 4,186
Author’s Note: Ha, ha…… I’m just going to go ahead and apologize now. 

.

December bleeds into January, and on one particular Thursday evening, Jungkook is thoroughly drunk as fuck, his mind much more hazy and uncontrolled than he is use to, the adrenaline rush of his latest win of the basketball game turning into something else. Something much more controlled and determined, something strong enough to force him out the door of Jimin’s house party. No one inside is sober enough to make him stay.

He staggers down the stairs and makes his way across the pavement of sidewalks, ignoring the way he shoulders people, giggles profusely to himself, overcome with a stupid kind of confidence that can only be ignited with way too much alcohol in his system.

Not thinking too deeply about the consequences of any of his actions, he approaches a familiar apartment complex, scales the stairs in such a dizzying way he almost throws up into one of the nearby trash bins. He doesn’t, but he does manage to fling himself rather unceremoniously against the apartment number he knows so well that even his drunk self can recognize its significance.

“(Y/N)! Oh (Y/N)!” He yells in a sing-song voice, banging on the door so hard it echoes through the entire complex.

You swing the door open after his second swing, eyes wide and face flushed with vague irritation. “Jungkook, what the hell?” You snap, grabbing him by the wrist and hauling him inside the room. You slam the door shut after poking your head out to ensure none of your neighbors would report you for noise control. “I thought you were Jimin’s party, celebrating your big win, I may add.”

“Mmmm,” Jungkook whines in the back of his throat, launching himself at you to wrap his arms around your shoulder. “I wanted to see you—why couldn’t you go? It would have been so much fun with you!”  

You gingerly rest your own hands upon his shoulders. “Jungkook, I told you. I’m trying to finish up my essay. It’s due tomorrow. And why does it matter to you if I went or not? It’s not like we have to put up so much of a front now that everyone thinks that we’re dating.” The last statement slips past your lips without too much thought, and you hate how dry the words sound leaving your lips.

What’s Going on with Jeff Sessions?
  • Jeff Sessions, U.S. Attorney General, was found to have met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak twice in 2016. During Session’s hearing with Congress in January he was asked  whether he had any contact with Russian officials, Sessions said he did not.
  • The big deal: Jeff Sessions is the head of the Department of Justice and is responsible for enforcing laws. It is against the law to lie under oath. If Jeff Sessions is found to have intentionally deceived the United States Congress, he will have committed perjury.
  • Senators from both parties have called for Sessions to recuse himself from an investigation revolving around Russian election interference. Major players in Congress from the Democratic party have called for Sessions to resign.
  • President Donald Trump commented that he has “total” confidence in Jeff Sessions and doesn’t think that Jeff Sessions should recuse himself from the Russian election interference investigation.
  • Previously, National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigned due to confirmation that he had spoken with Russian officials.

Read up on the situation (WP)(NYT)(CNN)(BBC)(TIME)

At the last moment, they realised that the best photo was one which had been taken by Cindy Palmano on the set of the ‘What have I done to deserve this?’ video. They had initially dismissed it as a sleeve image because they were wearing dinner jackets and bow ties. “Me yawning next to Chris,” says Neil.

'She’d done a session backstage, with a metallic background. For the very first photograph we’d just sat down and I’d yawned because I was tired.’

Unfortunately, the photograph had already been sent to Smash Hits magazine for their next cover, which went to press the following day. Desperate phone calls were made, and the Pet Shop Boys agreed to do a new photo session that evening for Smash Hits, and in return got back the yawning image.

“Then,” Neil recalls, “Mark had the idea of making it white and cutting out the background.” They knew it was good - “it was very un-whatever everyone else was doing,” says Neil - though that still didn’t mean Chris liked it.

“I hate the photo,” he says. “I can’t stand the way I look in it. I hate wearing a bloody dickie-bow, I hate wearing a white shirt and I hate the way my hair is. Straight after that video I had my hair cropped.”

  • what he says: im fine
  • what he means: At first, Dave has an extreme unfondness of Karkat, thinking of him as the shouty troll who enjoys his romance films and everything he does that Dave doesn't like is a way for Karkat trying to bother him. Their dislike for each other only increased when Karkat tried to split Terezi's time between them both with a grid, which dissolved into penis ouija and Karkat getting tangled in Dave's god tier cape.
  • During the meteors' final approach towards the B2 session, Karkat contacts Dave because Skaia is visible and Dave is beginning to be treated like how Karkat used to treat Sollux. Later in their conversation, they are revealed to consider each other 'bros' or 'best friends'.
  • As shown in the Vriskagram flash, Dave and Karkat have developed a much closer relationship on the post-retcon meteor journey. Here Rose mentions what sounds like penis Ouija having turned from a violent tussle in pre-retcon to a giggly dick-drawing session post-retcon. It is also shown that they enter a romantic relationship, as signified by Hussie on his Twitter, Vriska, and Jasprosesprite^2. Vriska suggests that they had some sort of complicated romantic situation that vacillated between multiple quadrants, and Jasprose says to Nepetasprite that Karkat is involved with someone else now in that [the flushed] quadrant. The Davesprite part of them also admits that "It still feels right" to have a crush on Karkat. Davepetasprite^2 states that, to the surprise of the Dave part of them, the concept of having a crush on Karkat is not something they are internally conflicted about. It was further implied by ipgd's vine, in which Hussie himself confirms it directly, and earlier by ipgd herself that Dave and Karkat are involved with each other romantically. Around the ending of Act 6 Act 6 Intermission 5, Karkat expresses concern, hoping that Dave is okay. This is also Karkat's last line in the comic.
Couples Counseling- Part 2

Summary: What better way to investigate a marriage counselor (who may or may not be responsible for the death of six of her clients) than to go to marriage counseling? It’s just pretend right? No different than putting on the FBI suits. Of course, nothing ever goes according to plan, and Sam and Dean quickly get more than they bargained for.

MONDAY

“I got nothing.” Sam mutters to himself as he stares at the EMF meter, doing absolutely nothing in his hand. He looks up and shakes his head at Dean, who is currently flirting with Leah in the doorway of Dr. Sodhi’s office. He’s been there since he convinced her to let them into the office early, on the premise that Sam lost a glove, and they wondered if it might be in there.

contacting spirits 101

ok so I see this Charlie Charlie challenge has become a “thing” and seems similar enough to ouija board which I do frequently enough so here’s a masterpost on how to stay safe while contacting spirits without being all lecture-y as these posts usually are

BEFORE THE SESSION

1) if you light candles, make sure they are light colored. don’t contact spirits with dark colored candles (especially black) as it could summon a malevolent spirit

2) before starting the session, you should pray (if you are religious) or, if you are not religious, imagine yourself being covered by a white, protecting, light, bubble or blanket.

3) keep silver on the board/paper. it is said to ward off evil spirits. Old quarters with the eagles on the back can be used.

4) If you have crystals, keep them nearby. They channel energy and will make it easier for the spirits to communicate.

5) a glass of water can be placed around the board/paper as it attracts spirits and makes them easier to contact.

DURING THE SESSION

1) be polite and courteous. Spirits can be easily angered so being rude or asking personal questions could lead to some unwanted situations

2) if you would like to ask a personal question, make sure to ask permission from the spirit first. only then should you proceed to ask the question. Topics you should NEVER ask about without being granted permission is about their death, afterlife and religion in general. Do not ask about God or the devil as this could cause unrest with the spirit.

3) Always say goodbye to end a session, and NEVER end a session without saying goodbye as this will leave the portal to the spirit world open and the contacted spirit may linger and cause problems after the session.

4) do not forget to thank the spirit after the session. this goes hand in hand with being polite. if you are polite, most likely they will be as well.

AFTER THE SESSION

1) Make sure all participants have said goodbye. I cannot stress this enough.

2) if possible, burn sage to cleanse your house. Though do not burn sage tied with a red string as it may have been cursed.

3) proclaim OUT LOUD “ The session is over. Any spirits lingering here are not welcome. Thank you for communicating with me, but it is time to leave”

WARNINGS

1) do not contact spirits in any way if you are sick, drunk, high, or your mental state is impaired in some way. this makes it easier for malevolent spirits to manipulate you.

2) if at any point before or during the session you have a feeling that doesn’t feel right, do not continue the session. trust your gut instinct and don’t do anything that seems dangerous.

3) do not contact spirits where people have died or in cemeteries.

4) typically spirits that go by the name of ZOZO or any variation of that are malevolent. I have also found that spirits that are young girls sometimes are tricksters that could cause problems as well.

That’s all! happy contacting, feel free to send me your stories and/or corrections. Also if you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a message :-)

@ilovecats509 Hell, YES. In the 3 other ask blogs I run, I get maybe 3 male S/o specific asks. So glad to get another one, thanks!!!

K, Headcanon time:

Scout: This is the guy that would do the random shows of affection, no warning at all. Either tackling them with a hug, ambushing them with a smooching session, or saying just before a match ‘Ya know I love you, right?’  S/O probably won’t ever get used these completely random acts of affection, but they’re happy all the same. (Bonus: Scout probably: ‘Ya know I love you, right?… No homo though.” and probably got karate kicked in the nuts for that joke.)

Soldier: I think that his and Zhanna’s relationship in the comics, is a lot lika how I picture him with a male S/o, he’s absolutely in love with him. After a match, he’ll run straight for his S/o, if he wasn’t already with them, and, despite win or lose, would act like he just won the next world war and came home to his sweetheart… He’d probably squeeze the life out of them in a celebratory manly tackle A.K.A hug, ignoring their protests that he’s still covered in the enemy’s blood. Probably silence them with a sweet ‘Shut it, Private!’  or a big ol’ sloppy ‘merican!smooch.

Sniper: Ok, y'all act like this guy is a clueless dork when it comes to love… And I think, if this guy really tries to be, he’s the smoothest motherfucker on the goddamn team. Flirting constantly, lingering touches and using his foreign accent to his advantage, no matter how ‘tough and manly’ his S/O think he is, Sniper turns them into a blushing mess. He’s still an adorable dork though, and will probably get really flustered when the tables are turned, blushing and ducking his face against his boyfriend’s neck with a embarrassed grumble, but a huge grin.

Heavy: Protective as hell, doesn’t matter if S/O can take care of themselves or not. Also, expect him to speak a lot in Russian. While S/O probably can’t understand a word of it, he probably bribes Spy to translate… That’s when SO finds out about all the adorable, sweet nicknames and sayings the Russian says to him every day.

Demo: HUUUUUUGE hugger, probably hugs his SO more than Soldier or even Pyro does. He’ll also be the best when it comes to encouraging or cheering his S/O on in whatever they do, proudly announcing his affection for them to the world, even in completely random situations, like in the middle of a battle or at dinner. This guy is proud to have his S/O love, and he makes that no secret. Also, S/O must prepare for cuddles. At all times.

Engineer: He is so thankful to have his boyfriend in his life, and he’ll constantly tell them that. Even the simplest things his S/O does, making him coffee or grabbing a wrench for him, he thanks then immediately with a kiss on the cheek, and a smile. Also, any and all projects are instantly put on hold, if any of his S/O’s stuff breaks or malfunctions, Engineer will fix it and improve it for them immediately. He’s also the second biggest gift giver, and will constantly surprise his S/O with random gifts he made at two in the morning. To him, it’s so worth it.

Pyro: Like Heavy, they are protective as hell. The second that are off the field, they will latch on to their S/O like glue… They won’t let go for nothing, except maybe to find some semi-burnt flowers or stuffed animal to offer them.

Medic: Lots of Physical contact, not all of it sexual, pervs. As a ex-doctor, he is naturally fascinated with the human body, but is absolutely transfixed when it comes to his S/O. He’ll nonchalantly offer shoulder massages, back rubs, or anything else he can do in order to get close to his S/O. He’ll probably be the one to give small pecks on S/O shoulder or neck during these improv massage sessions, and will often wrap his arms around them for no apparent reason, except maybe a half-hearted excuse like ‘You looked cold, I do not vant you to catch a chill, mein unmögliche perfektion.” Also, nicknames, nicknames everywhere. And a huge cuddler, big-spoon alert.

Spy: Out in public, he’s not that attentive, barely ever kissed his S/O or holds them. Once the battles are over, brace for impact. Flirting, check. Physical contact, check. Makeout sessions like no tomorrow, check. S/O may never understand a word of what Spy might be saying, but they don’t need to understand it to know that they are loved more than anything else in the world, by this Frenchman. Warning though, Don’t EVER show to much interest in something, because once the Spy sees you have your eyes on it, he will get it. Rare book edition? He’ll threaten the author to hand write it. Want that new car? He will fly across the Atlantic, sell a portion of Mann Co. And probably assassinate two world leaders to get it for his baffled S/O. And don’t get him started on something in a museum. If S/O is eyeballing the damn Hope Diamond or the Mona Lisa, that gem will be in his hands at breakfast the next day and the painting will be carefully placed atop the fireplace, with his sneaky French boyfriend looking all smug and proud before giving him a mind blowing kiss to silence his protests, a simple ‘Don’t fret about it,’ and a very self-satisfied smirk following after.

SFW and NSFW headcanons for Kakuzu or Deidara? :)

Yes! I hope you enjoy reading them ^^

Kakuzu

SFW

  • Kakuzu is pretty picky when it comes to spending money . Whether it is for his own being or for his lover. Usually when you ask him about going on a date he will take you somewhere for a walk, or to a place where the entry is free. Yet, the place has to be quiet because he hates noisy places and a lot of people. He wants to be able to talk to his lover in a quiet tone and not scream at them.
  • Kakuzu might not seem like it but he’s a romantic person. Sometimes he surprises his lover with a candle light dinner or perhaps a bath in the hot springs. A place where he can be alone with you.
  • If Kakuzu’s your boyfriend you don’t have to worry about someone disliking you. Whenever someone insults you or harasses you, you can be sure that it is a one time thing. You know that Kakuzu has something to do with it, even though he won’t admit it.
  • You also don’t have to worry about your finances because he’ll gladly help you with them. He might make some mean comments about the things you’re spending your money on, saying that it’s „unnecessary“ or „stupid“.
  • The moment you’re allowed to touch his bare skin, you know that he trusts you. Especially when it comes to the hearts on his back. Only if he trusts you enough, he’ll ask you to help him stitch his back up.

NSFW

  • Kakuzu enjoys making love to his lover rather than fucking them into oblivion. He enjoys seeing their expression when he thrusts into them. But not as much as he enjoys the sounds of his lover when he pulls himself slowly out of you before burying himself deep inside again.
  • He really loves it when his lover rides him. Like this, he can keep the eye contact and caress your body, making sure that he touches every single part of your skin.
  • Even though he loves slow and intense sex, his preferences will change with his mood. If he’s angry, the sex with him can turn out to be pretty rough. Though he would never do anything that could possibly hurt you but pinning you down is the least he’ll do.
  • Kakuzu prefers it to give oral more than to receive it. You can expect him to lift you up on the kitchen counter in the morning so he can bury his face between your thighs, not wanting to waive his breakfast.

Deidara

SFW

  • Deidara loves cuddling a lot. He will use every chance he can get to be close to you. Even when the others are around, he’ll randomly sneak his arms around your waist to backhug you and place his chin on your shoulder so he can lead his head against yours. He enjoys inhaling your scent and placing small kisses on your cheeks and shoulders, his hands usually resting on your sides.
  • Dates with Deidara can be really special and if you’re afraid of heights then Deidara is definitely not the perfect match for you. There are days when he simply wants to fly on one of his clay birds with you, so you two can admire everything from above. Most of the time he will ask you to point at a location you want to go to and he’ll take you there.
  • Even though Deidara does not seem like it, he loves cooking. Sometimes when you return home, you will find him in the kitchen already preparing dinner for you two. Of course, he knows every single one of your favorite dishes and he secretly learned to perfect them to impress you.
  • There can be days when Deidara is insecure about the mouths on his hands. Before he met you, he never wasted a second thought on it but whenever you’re around he’s a bit afraid that you find it weird. You can tell him a thousand time that it does not bother you but inwardly he’ll always ask himself if that’s really true.
  • Deidara often sings to himself in the shower, even louder when he’s home alone.
  • Deidara is really good at keeping secrets to himself so whenever you have any sorrows or problems you can vent to him.


NSFW

  • Deidara loves receiving oral as much as he likes giving it. He might be a little rough sometimes when he tangles his fingers in your hair to guide your mouth down on his cock but his expression is definitely worth it. You also can’t expect him to be quiet, not even when the two of you aren’t home alone. When you pleasure him he loves it to be loud and to tell you how good you are.
  • Deidara prefers to top his lover, enjoying the intense eye contact during your sessions. Preferably he has a partner who is as loud as him, so he knows that everything he does is pleasurable for his lover. Hearing your moans will drive him crazy and he will grow more confident with every single sound that escapes your mouth.
  • The blond loves it when his partner is a bit flexible. The feeling of his cock being completely buried inside his lover, almost sending him over the peak every time. Even if it’s already the third round, the moment he pushes your legs over his shoulders to get deeper access to you he can’t hold himself back. He will increase the speed and force of his thrusts, even though he knows that he won’t last long like that.
  • After sex he loves holding you in his arms, preferably spooning you from behind. Usually he is the one to fall asleep quicker than you but you can keep him awake by grinding your ass against his crotch.  
  • Geez, this guy loves butts. Sometimes he’ll let you walk in front of him just so he can look at your rear or grab it. Since he loves to cherish his lover, the idea of massaging them might come up to his mind. Whenever that happens he makes sure that you’re all naked on your stomach in front of him, his hands first sliding down your back before spanking you. Just a light spank before his lips meet the skin of your butt, his hands massaging it while he trailed kisses down the back of your thighs.

Lobbyist for Russian interests says he attended dinners hosted by Sessions
Richard Burt contradicts Jeff Sessions’ testimony that he didn’t believe he had contacts with lobbyists working for Russian interests during Trump’s campaign
