the crowd was so pretty

I saw Moana today, and there was so very much to love about it.  But I think I’m just going to talk about one thing for now.  And that’s the “princess upgrade.”  (Well, that’s what I’m calling it.)

Moana has the usual Disney heroine trope of “I want more than being a princess/royalty/whatever!”  (It’s a good trope for a fairy tale.)  But with a lot of Disney princesses, there’s really nothing for them to DO as princesses.  They exist, and that’s good and right for the kingdom, your prince will come and evil will be defeated, the end.  There’s no actual ruling or governance or anything you have to be trained for, don’t be silly!

Moana is the daughter of a chief, and the main point her father uses to keep her at home and out of trouble is saying, “hey, you’re gonna be chief someday, here are your people, you’ve got to take care of them!”  And the next montage shows her…doing exactly that.  We see her making decisions in day-to-day life, talking to her people, doing her job to keep the island and her people happy and prosperous.  We see her, in short, being trained to be a leader.  Her birth position is both a job and a serious responsibility that has to be performed right to keep things good.  Destiny, of course, has some extra things in mind for her, but those things are also in the best interest of her people.  They’re tasks that need to be done, and she was the person picked for the job.

That was EXTREMELY refreshing to see.  And that alone would have made the movie worth it to me, but again, there was SO MUCH MORE TO LOVE.

MCL Boyfriend Headcanons: How they would act at a party with their S/O

(Since in the most recent episode they attend a party with just a few friends, I’m writing this as if they were at a very loud, crowded house party instead, so it’s a bit different. Sorry these are pretty short! And also alcohol is mentioned a bit)

 

Nathaniel

  • He honestly would just be annoyed the entire time. The music is way too loud, and whoever the DJ is has horrible taste in his opinion.
  • He’d definitely follow you the entire time, only separating from you to get a quick drink, or talk to a few people here and there.
  • Since it’s a big party he’s being very cautious about everything. Did someone spike the punch?? Did someone try to slip drugs into your drink while you weren’t looking?? Best believe if you set your cup down he’s not going to let you drink it.
  • Definitely developing a bit of a headache, he’s gonna do that hand-to-forehead thing he always does when he’s irritated. He only attended this thing because you begged him to and he low-key regrets his decision.
  • After a while he loosens up a bit more and will actually engage in conversations with other people but he’s still got his hand placed on your lower back just to make it clear that you aren’t available.
  • Anyone he thinks is trying to flirt with you is going to get the most subtle threats, it’s kind of scary actually. You don’t notice it but the person trying to put moves on you is definitely rethinking their actions.
  • He’s definitely going to be leaving early. He’ll drag you away if he has to, there’s no way he’d stay any longer than maybe 4 hours. If he does he’s going to go insane.
  • Sleep is the only thing on his mind when he’s finally home. He mutters something like “I only did this for you,” before falling asleep.

Castiel

  • Castiel is pretty lit actually. He may not be dancing, but he’s definitely enjoying himself, having conversations with people, laughing at people’s stupid dance moves.
  • He thinks the music is absolute trash but you catch him tapping his foot or fingers to the beat few times. He probably secretly knows all the lyrics to a few songs.
  • Definitely keeping you in his sight at all time, and if he somehow gets separated from you he will immediately stop what he’s doing to find you. He keeps an arm around you to make sure you stay close to him.
  • Other people don’t even think about trying to flirt with you cause 1. Castiel makes it VERY clear you’re his and 2. He’s pretty much glaring at anyone who comes within 5 feet of your presence.
  • Probably flirting with you the entire time, might make a dirty joke here and there.
  • He’s watching your drink for you because you probably are too caught up with other things. If there is alcohol present he’ll only drink a bit, and if you choose to have some he’s only going to let you have like a few sips because he’s low-key a mama bear. Neither of you are going to be drunk.
  • He would probably leave late but he wouldn’t be one of the last few people there. He likes his occasional party but he still would rather be at home in bed with his dog.
  • When he gets home he just instantly crashes, and has a death grip on you so good luck getting out of his arms in the morning.

Lysander

  • He honestly only came just so that he could make sure nothing happened to you. But god, why of all things did you have to choose a party, and a big one at that?
  • He’s just trailing alone behind you, not talking much. He’ll engage in a bit of small talk here and there but don’t expect anything more than that.
  • Definitely not going to dance, there’s no point in even asking him.
  • Has a headache as soon as you walk through the door and is probably mentally groaning
  • He isn’t going to let you have any kind of drink that isn’t closed already, so you only get like, water bottles and cans of soda with him.
  • Has his hand placed on your waist to make sure he stays near you and also to keep away anyone trying to flirt with you. He isn’t playing around at this party so anyone trying to flirt with you is going to get the scariest look ever. It’s not even a glare or anything its just this look that says “Back the f*** up.”
  • Is extremely uncomfortable and even though he tries to have fun for your sake he’s just not feeling it so you’d be one of the first ones to leave.
  • It’s going to take him a while to want to do anything involving other people, he’s pretty introverted.

Armin

  • Armin is pretty much like ‘Hell yeah” at first. He’s definitely enjoying himself a lot and is talking to quit a bit of people.
  • He probably meets a guy that likes games just as much as him and the discuss whether console or PC gaming is better, which leads to an argument. It’s all good though and they exchange numbers later.
  • He sticks by you, making sure you aren’t too far off. If he sees anyone trying to flirt he kinda just slides in between you two like “Hey bud, is there anything my GIRLFRIEND and I can help you with??”
  • Will dance, but don’t expect him to bust out any cool moves. He’s mainly doing so to embarrass you, doing things like the (original) running man, the sprinkler, etc.
  • Oh god, he’s probably going to be that guy to start a freaking dance off. He and some other guy are somewhere doing the wave together. Tries to break dance but falls on his behind.
  • Afterwards he’s gonna go up to you and ask, “Hey babe, you like my cool moves back there?” cause he’s a dork.
  • Somehow ends up crowd surfing with you.
  • After a while he just wants to go home and snuggle with you under a blanket with junk food and movies. “Baaaaaaaaabe, can we leave please?”
  •  

Kentin

  • He only came to make sure no other guys were gonna try to come on to you. Protective af.
  • He’s buying his own drinks for you because there’s no way he’s gonna let you drink anything that he hasn’t thoroughly inspected. He’s just looking out for you.
  • As soon as you arrive he’s groaning and whining. Still trying to convince you not to go.
  • No dancing. Nope. He might break something.
  • Following you the entire time, while sulking. He’s so annoyed with the craziness of everything.
  • After a while he’ll start to relax a little bit and actually starts to have a little fun. He’s talking to a few other guys, telling them stories of his military school days. Probably almost gets into a fight with someone, let’s be real.
  • He’s got an arm around your shoulders, holding you extremely close and sending mental death threats to anyone that so much as looks at you too long. Almost gets into another fight because of this.
  • Definitely starts to complain about being tired and will hug you from behind with his face buried in your neck. He’s a sleepy baby.
Jeonghan as Your Boyfriend

This was requested by this lovely anon and since I’m kinda doing a boyfriend series now I was thinking about “what would sex be like with ___” but I already write a few things about it in these too so idk

**

  • Wants you to braid his hair
  • Buys you flower crowns
  • Kisses you at random times
  • You could be walking through a crowded street and he’ll just be like “God she’s so pretty, gotta kiss her”
  • Type of guy to fill your room with balloons on your birthday so that when you open the bedroom door you see a giant mountain of balloons
  • “I’m in love with you”
  • When you meet with the other members they’d be like “Wow you’re so pretty” and Jeonghan would just hide you behind his back and be like “Back off she’s mine”
  • “Hey guys look my girlfriend is even prettier than me”
  • Worried about you all the time
  • You can hit your waist to the kitchen counter and he’ll be like “SOMEONE CALL AN AMBULANCE”
  • Boops your nose all the time
  • Amusement park dates
  • “Jeonghan you’re MY boyfriend not Seungcheol’s”
  • Soonyoung always asks you “So is he good in bed?”
  • And just before you can answer Jeonghan grabs you by your arm and pulls you away from him “okAY that’s enoUGH”
  • Likes to watch movies with his head on your knees
  • Sometimes he gets really emotional and start talking about how you’re very important to him
  • “Did you know that I love you a lot?”
  • punisHMENTS

Sorry, but requests are CLOSED.

taerellavellan  asked:

Maraas! Let's talk humor: what is the best way to make you laugh? What do you like (or hate) in terms of jokes or pranks or what have you? What is your sense of humor like? :D Also, what is the best way to piss you off? (so I know what not to do lol).

Maraas: Make me laugh? Easy. Be funny. But hey, it helps to know how to relax and make fun of yourself. Just leave other people out of it unless they actually deserve it or you know they can handle it. I… hmm… I like people with a quick wit. Someone who isn’t too hung up on embarrassing themselves. Someone isn’t too shy to speak up. Travelling with the Valo-Kas, if you didn’t learn how to make yourself heard in a crowd, you pretty much vanished. So I like a bit of back-and-forth, even if the jokes are at my expense. No problem here. I can take it.

What do I hate? Look, I’m all for a bit of good natured ribbing, but pick your targets all right? Some quiet kid in the corner who’s just minding their own business? Yeah, maybe leave them out of it. If the only way you can be funny by dragging down someone you know won’t hit back, then maybe you’re just not funny.

Pissing me off? Huh, I’m pretty hard to piss off, friend. I suppose I’m not a fan of people who pick on folk who aren’t in a position to fight back, but I think that’s the same for anyone who isn’t a complete asshole. But, listen… don’t threaten me or my own. That won’t go well. No one fights harder than a Tal-Vashoth backed into a corner, understand? The Valo-Kas, my friends… they’re off limits. A threat to them is a threat to me, which is definitely a threat to you.

@brianiswikyd“Was it a march or were you at a capitol? Seattle has been nuts with protests this entire year, it’s fantastic.”

It took place in Kansas City.  Compared to a lot of the protests that have been happening around the country, it wasn’t huge (about 2,000 people).  But I’ve only ever done smaller local protests, so I found the crowd to be pretty exhilarating.  

And the public reaction was pretty encouraging too.  A lot of passer-bys expressed support and solidarity.  Not too many hecklers.  It’s just good to be reminded that not the whole country is insane.

Imagine the look on Jensen’s face when he first sees you in a dress for the first time.

“So of course I was like that” Jensen licked his lower lip, watching after at the directon you had left. Very glad you could once again not see him. 

You had decided to go visit him at his panel, seeign as yours and Misha’s was abotu two hours after his. It was a pleasant surprise, he could always say when he saw you unexpectedly, but seeing you wear that little dress just had him grinning like an idiot the entire time you were there.

He now was on the point of recounting the first time he saw you in a dress, unable to hold himself seeing as this was just the second time he had seen you wear one. He certainly enjoyed it.

“Yep, I think some lads here know what I mean” he laughed and so did the crowd “But I have to say I am pretty lucky she didn’t see me during the party that first time or else she would stop wearing them altogether”

“Nope, don’t want that under no circumstances!” he grinned, wiggling his eyebrows.

Bright smiles were on everybody’s faces as they all clapped and cheered loudly. Jensen laughed as well, throwing his head back.

“Yep. Even if Dean is not having much luck with (Y/c/n) I sure as hell hope to get some soon!”

Stiles- We’ve Got To Stop Meeting Like This

Request-  Hello! I was hoping to request a Stiles imagine where he goes to Comic Con as Batman and meets the reader as Cat Woman. And they are hella flirty, but when it ends she disappears and he’s upset. He finds out that she goes to his school in a happy accident. Super fluffy and flirty! I love you!

A/N- Thank you! Awesome prompt and Erica is the reader’s best friend because she honestly had so much potential as a character. Next up is an Aiden imagine.

You moved through the thick masses of people, tugging your friend Erica along with you as you walked through the convention center. Now that you thought about it, walked wouldn’t exactly be the right word, since the crowds had pretty much slowed to a crawl.
“God it’s so crowded in here,” you complained.
“I know,” Erica said. “Who would have thought that this many adults would want to come here just to walk through sweaty crowds and play dress up?”
“Hey!” you complained. “We’re not even adults yet and even if we were we would still have the right to do this.”
“Well it still doesn’t make us any less lame,” Erica muttered.
“Oh please,” you told her. “Like you’re not enjoying that Harley Quinn costume.”
You reached out to tug on one of her springy blonde pigtails, sending her a grin to which she just rolled her eyes. You looked back ahead of you and your eyes roamed over all the fans in brightly colored costumes. You saw the Flash, an Obi Wan Kenobi, and even several power rangers. Those were just some of the characters you could add to the list.
“Well I did only come to this thing for you, but at least I’m not wearing a skin tight leather suit,” Erica remarked.
“You could have if you wanted to,” you reminded her. “But come on, is there any other way to do Catwoman?”
“I guess not,” she told you with another roll of her eyes. “I just hope we don’t run into anyone we know.”
“Whatever,” you told her. “It’s not like we’re getting any more popular.”
“True,” she said with a sigh. “At least the crowds are breaking up.”
“Do you wanna see what panels we can go to?” you asked her, directing her to another hallway.
“After I go the bathroom,” she told you.
You watched Erica walk down the hall to your right, her hair swishing behind her as she pushed open the bathroom door. You leaned against the wall, crossing your arms over your chest and watching everyone else go by as you waited for her to finish up. You weren’t the most patient person and you hated waiting, so you pulled out your phone to try and pass the time.
As you leaned against the hallway, two guys were walking towards you, and one of them was talking incredibly loudly. You probably should have noticed them, but you were so engrossed in your phone that you didn’t even hear them coming.
“I bet you’re regretting not dressing up now,” Stiles was saying to Scott.
“Actually,” Scott said as he peered around at everyone around him. “I think I’m okay with it.”
“I dressed up,” Stiles told him. “And as my best friend you should support me. You could have been the perfect Robin.”
“Dude, I love you, and I’d die for you, but I’m never wearing tights for you,” Scott said as he looked painfully at some of the other guys around him.
“Well you’re missing out,” Stiles told him as he shot a look over his shoulder. “It’s so freeing not to wear pants. It’s like-WOAH!”
In Stiles’ haste to prove a point to Scott, he hadn’t been looking in front of him. Scott had been busy looking at all the other costumes and thanking his lucky stars that he hadn’t given into Stiles, so he had been distracted too. Neither of them had noticed you leaning against the wall, at least not fast enough for Stiles to stop himself from slamming into you and taking you to the floor.
You let out a shocked gasp as a boy dressed as Batman slammed into you, causing you both to spill onto the carpet. You rolled, basically landing on top of him to where you were resting on his chest.
“Oh my god,” Stiles choked. “I am so sorry! I-I wasn’t looking.”
You opened your mouth to say that it was fine, but that was when you realized that your position was almost exactly like the one on the rooftop from Batman Returns. Stiles realized it too, and he couldn’t help but laugh as he looked up at you. You grinned, not being able to resist the perfect moment.
“You’re catnip to a girl like me,” you remarked, repeating the exact lines from the film and causing Stiles to grin from beneath you. “Handsome, dazed and to die for.”
“Mistletoe can be deadly if you eat it,” Stiles replied.
“But a kiss can be even deadlier if you mean it,” you continued.
You laughed as your own ridiculousness, rolling off of him and holding out a hand to help him up. “Sorry if I made that weird, but I had to.”
“N-no,” Stiles sputtered, seemingly out of breath from you being on top of him. “That’s okay. It was awesome and totally not weird. I mean you could have licked my face, and that would have made it weird. Not that that was an offer or anything-”
A laugh escaped your lips at Batman’s awkwardness, and you found his sputtering incredibly adorable. Now that you weren’t actually on top of him, you saw that he was tall and a bit skinny, with bright brown eyes. He was pretty cute now that you thought about it, and you wouldn’t have minded getting to know him.
“I get it,” you told him with smile, cutting off his sputtering.
He nodded, shaking his head vigorously back and forth. “Oh. Good.”
You grinned and you were just about to open your mouth to ask his name when his friend tapped his shoulder. “Dude, my mom’s car broke down and she can’t get to work later tonight. She wants to know if we can drive back and get there in time to take her.”
Stiles sighed, but Scott’s mom was like his mom, and he couldn’t say no to that. “We’d have to leave now, but we’ll get there if the jeep doesn’t crap out on us.”
“Let’s go then,” Scott told him.
Stiles shot you a smiled, wishing he had more time to stay and talk with you. You were pretty and funny, and you looked about his age. He wished there was a girl in Beacon Hills like you, but he had yet to find one.
“I guess I’ll see you another time, Batman?” you asked him.
Stiles flashed you a smile. “Maybe next year Catwoman.”
Then just like that, before you could even ask for his name or his number, he was heading back into the crowd and disappearing with his friend in tow. You leaned back against the wall with a sigh, kicking yourself for not thinking faster.
“Hey,” Erica said as she exited the hallway to the bathroom. “Sorry I took so long, the line in there was crazy. Anything interesting happen?”
You grinned. “Oh, yeah. You won’t believe this…”

“I’m such an idiot,” Stiles told Scott as he walked down the hallway of the high school. “I mean, god, I didn’t even get her name!”
“Maybe you’ll see her next year,” Scott told him. “I’ll even go with you again.”
“But what if she’s not there next year?” Stiles asked him. “Or what is she finds a boyfriend by then? Someone a lot more qualified than me. Or what if she already has one?”
“Then you never had a chance in the first place,” Scott told him with a shrug.
“You know, you’re not exactly making me feel any better,” Stiles told him.
“What am I supposed to say dude? There’s nothing I can do to help you find your mystery cat girl.”
“Catwoman,” Stiles corrected. “She was Catwoman, and I’m pretty sure she was the love of my life, Scott.”
Scott rolled his eyes. “You also thought Lydia was the love of your life and-”
“In middle school!” Stiles protested. “But I’m a man now, Scott-”
“That’s debatable,” Scott told him.
When Stiles rolled his eyes at him, Scott just huffed. “I don’t know, dude. Ask Allison. She’s lived in a lot of places and not just California. Maybe she’ll know her from somewhere.”
Stiles huffed, shooting Scott an angry look as he stalked down the hall. Little did he know that his mystery Catwoman was right down the hall, walking side by side with Erica Reyes.
“He was so cute,” you told Erica. “I mean, I can’t believe I didn’t get his number.”
“I’m surprised you even said that to him,” Erica told you. “Neither of us have ever been the most outgoing when it comes to guys.”
“But Batman was different,” you insisted. “I don’t know, I just felt like I could tell him anything.”
“Well that’s great,” Erica told you, placing her hand on your shoulder. “But you know I’m a realist, and as your best friend I’m telling you you’re probably never going to see him again.”
“I know,” you told her with a huff as you turned the corner. “But it’s your job as my best friend to tell me I’ll live happily ever after.”
“Well then I suggest you find a new best friend,” she told you jokingly.
You gave her an annoyed look, turning the corner and slamming right into none other than Stiles. Just like at Comic Con, Stiles hadn’t been paying attention either and he didn’t even see you coming. You both hit the floor, but this time Stiles fell on top of you.
It took him only seconds to scramble off you, placing his arms on either side of your head and taking his weight off of you.
“Oh my god, I am so sor-”
Stile froze as he looked down at you, taking in your features and realizing that you were the girl he had been talking about non-stop for three days. “Catwoman?”
“Batman?” you asked, a grin breaking out across your face.“We’ve got to stop meeting like this.”
“I didn’t know you went to this school,” Stiles told you, his body nearly shaking with excitement. “I’ve never even seen you around!”
“Well, I’ve never seen you either,” you told him with a laugh. “I actually never even got your name.”
“Oh my god,” Erica remarked as she looked down at you and Stiles on the floor. “Stiles is your Batman?”
“What?” you asked, looking past Stiles and up at her. “You knew him?!”
“I guess so,” she remarked.
“And this is coming from the girl who said I’d never see him again,” you told her flatly.
Erica shrugged from where she stood beside Scott. “How was I supposed to know I knew him? I never even saw him!”
You rolled your eyes, looking back to Stiles to see that he was grinning down at you with adoration in his eyes. You blushed, and he blinked suddenly. “Oh! I should probably get off you. I think people are starting to stare.”
You smiled as he rose to his feet, holding out a hand to help you up. He scratched the back of his neck, looking over at you nervously. “So you know my name now, but I don’t know yours.”
“Y/n,” you told him with a smile. “It’s Y/n.”
“Pretty,” he remarked. “Like you.”
Stiles let out a nervous laugh and you blushed, which cause both Erica and Scott to roll their eyes.
“Oh get a room,” Erica remarked with a small smile.
“Erica!” you complained through gritted teeth. “Will you go find Boyd?”
She shook her head with a smile, hiking her bag up on her shoulder and playfully winking at you. “Have fun.”
She turned down the hall, and now Stiles had your full attention. “So uh, now that I actually know who you are, do you maybe wanna go on a date with me?”
You grinned. “I would love to, Batman.”

Hammer to Fall

The first thing we see is Brian’s croth I approve already

Queen stages were always so pretty

The crowd is alive yaaasss boo

John miming the lyrics me cries

Vocals vocals fucking vocals

I’m trying really hard not to talk about Roger because I - you know what stop I can’t

Freddie looked so good in white (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Deaky what are you doing don’t fall boy

this piece i wrote has done better than i thought it would so far (assuming i can take LIKES as actually being read.

the reason it surprises me is it has a few references to other media. I worry about references I use quite a bit and how to use them and if they will be understood. Another example was the piece I wrote “final stage name:” (whcih also did well p cool thanks guys) where at the end I reference shoryukens and ex-meters, things related to the Street Fighter games. And maybe it’s not all that surprising given that video games is one of the largest, if not the largest, media industries now. It probably only surprises me since as a kid video games where nowhere near as huge as they are now but then I remember that EVO, a fighting game championship, was broadcasted on ESPN recently and the games on the main stage drew in a pretty large crowd. So did the Capcom Cup. Back when EVO first started to stream its matches it drew in nowhere near as many, but at EVO 2016 around 5000 entrants entered the Street Fighter V tournament alone.

this is interests me because of the way humans are capable of knowing things. How we retain information. How news of events is passed around. Forum chatter, image board shitposting, blogging, and etc.

there’s more to this but i forgot what i was going to say and ended up reading an article, let me think about it real quick.
