the last picture is actually my favorite

What if Neil wrote in a journal everyday and it basically became a sort of scrapbook and his reminder that he has a home and reason to finally stay

  • It was Bee’s idea because Neil finally confined in her that he still has the urge to run some days 
  • Mainly on days when he wakes up from nightmares of his Fathers men and Lola grabbing and torturing him all over again
  • Bee goes through her bookshelves and finds a leather journal that she hasn’t used yet and gives it to him
  • Her advices was to write the date on the top of the page and when the day is done to write everything he’s done or put little mementos in it (e.g. receipt, tickets, pictures

[FANACCT] 170611 KNK “해달별" Fansign Experience at 제일라아트홀 (Fanboy)

Hi again! 

I’m here with my fanaccount for KNK’s fansign during their “해달별" promotions.

This was a notably important fansign for me because I’m pretty sure this is my last fansign event before I leave Korea on the 22nd…

I’m so sad. ㅠㅠ

Anyway, it was a really awesome event and I’m glad I got to see my favorite group up close and personal again.

I did a video about their fansign before during “U” era too.

Without further ado, let’s get started!

KNK’s fansigns are getting more competitive nowadays, with fans buying more than 10 albums to have a chance to get in. I originally bought 9 albums, but after seeing a fan next to me at the CD store buy 10, I bought 3 more, totaling up to 12 albums overall. And I got in!

On the day of the fansign, I found the building where it was held and headed to the B2 floor. Some fans were waiting to get in, but the staircase and entrance was rather narrow. I showed my Alien Registration Card to verify my identification (though a passport works just as well) and the staff told me to pick a card that was on the table. The assorted cards were all face-down, and this was to determine my seat number. I got number 63. 

I took my seat, but the rows of chairs were all close together and narrow too, not allowing much room. This was a noticeable inconvenience when fans had to squeeze past each other in the rows. I spent a huge amount of time before coming to prepare a fanletter for my bias Seungjun, so I had to write down all the post-its for the members that I would put in my album.

Soon the members appeared and the fansign went underway. They looked so handsome as always, but they look especially good with the suits in this era aghhhh. 

Sorry that my picture’s quality isn’t too good, but this is how the fansign was conducted. The order was: Jihun→Inseong→Seungjun→Youjin→Heejun

MEMBER INTERACTIONS (with pictures and gifs!)

I’ll fast-forward to the interactions I had with each member. I’m sorry that I forgot some things that happened, but in the thick of the moment, it’s hard to process and take in everything that happened (for me). Luckily, I met someone at the fansign that was kind enough to take a video of me when I went through this great experience. I was really nervous again, because they’re my favorite group and this was my last time, so I was even more anxious. 

JIHUN

So leader Jihun was first this time around~ Actually he was rather quiet today as well; when I met him at a fansign last year, he was rather soft-spoken too. But it’s not necessarily a bad thing. I pointed to the questions I had brought for him on the post-its and told him I was a part of an international KNK fan group on Facebook, and I gathered some questions other Tinkerbells wanted to know about KNK. He was listening and then all of a sudden, said, “Ah. International,” in English. THAT WAS FREAKING CUTE AHH. He was really handsome up-close, though. He looked mature and cool when he was in thinking mode, but then he lapsed into squishy mode when he smiled and it was just adorable.

He really thought deeply about the questions I wrote. I guess he had to think a lot about how to answer them. But another factor was that time was really limited and the staff members were quite strict so they moved our albums to the next member by force, cutting our time short. 

Blue post-it note:
Q: Which member is really the closest to Jihun-hyung…?
A: I’m close with all but umm… Heejun?!
Jihun had some trouble answering this question but dang, I didn’t expect him to think so seriously about it. ㅠㅠ I’m sorry if I had to make you pick a favorite! I know you all love each other LOL. 

Yellow post-it note:
Q: Where do you draw the inspiration when you make the choreography (for KNK)?
A: There’s just times when suddenly… Ttak! 
I forgot what other little things we said after he answered those, but I had to move on. I gave him high-fives as a farewell and moved over to… Inseong!

INSEONG

Next was my second bias, Inseong. I greeted him by saying, “Inseonggie hyung~” hahaha because he’s just a fun, cool guy. He grinned and asked, “Hyung?” I SWEAR THIS WAS SO REMINISCENT WHEN I FIRST MET HIM in person when he asked me, “Am I hyung?” LOL. But he is just killing the visual game nowadays. He looked especially handsome today. He asked me where I’m from and I told him America, more specifically Hawaii. 

Bottom post-it note:
Q: Is there a place you really want to visit (vacation-wise)?
A: Hawaii

That’s probably why he cleverly wrote his answer as “Hawaii” for my question, but I’m not complaining! Inseong is really easy to talk to. 
I told him that his hairstyle for this concept suits him very well and that he looks really handsome. He was really happy to hear a compliment and ahhh he was just an excited hamster. I assured him that he was already handsome but now, even more. I basically complimented him a lot because he deserves more love and attention!!

Top post-it note:
Q: The most difficult point of this promotion…?

A: Live…!?

He explained that singing live was one of the toughest parts of promotions. I asked why, and he said it’s because he has to sing rather high. I understand him because him singing the chorus in “해달별" while dancing pretty vigorously looked really tiring… But he pulled it off! I told him he was really good and that he’s doing well. I feel like he was insecure a little about his performance as a vocalist and how well he does and I wanted to reassure him. It was time to move on so I told him bye~ Inseong really does have a warm heart and he’s such a nice person please give him lots of affection and reassurance

SEUNGJUN *BIAS ALERT*

*sigh* I really can’t express how great and caring Seungjun is. I can tell he truly loves and adores his fans, and it shows from the way he treats them. He said my name like, “Junior?” in a cute tone and I said cutely too, “Seungjunnie-hyung~” AHAHAHAHA. He immediately looked at my questions and more antics ensued.

Blue post-it note:
Q: POKEMON or DIGIMON, you can only choose one
A: *marks Pokemon* but went the extra mile to show his UNCONDITIONAL PREFERENCE FOR DIGIMON LIKE WHAT THE NOOOOOOO

Yellow post-it note:
Q: Is there a member you want to live with for the rest of your life?
A: Inseong Jihun

At first, he took a look at the blue note and I reiterated, “You can only choose one!” Without hesitation, he answered, “Digimon!” I was like WHAT THE HECK, NO YOU CAN’T CHOOSE DIGIMON OVER POKEMON OMGG.

He was so firm, he was like, “Digimon~” in a cute tone and I told him, “Why??” He seemed a bit sympathetic and marked Pokemon, but said, “Digimon~” again and decorated a box around the word Digimon. DANG IT SEUNGJUN. I was like OTL because I came dressed in a Squirtle hoodie because I thought he loved Pokemon more but that happened. I mockingly complained, “I came dressed like this too…” Seungjun chuckled and then proceeded to gently grab my arm and draw a little heart on the Squirtle patch design on my hoodie!!!

SJ: *in a Korean accent* Hearteu~
I internally died at this cute action like I AM NEVER WASHING THIS HOODIE AGAIN LOL

I also made sure to give him the letter I worked on. He then looked at my second post-it, which he thought about for a moment. At first, Seungjun wrote Inseong, so I asked him why. He said because Inseong is funny. BUT THEN LAST MINUTE Seungjun scratches out Inseong’s name and writes Jihun AND HE DIDN’T EVEN GIVE A REASON WHY LOL. So that made think like HMMMMM this ship really sails itself huh… Now I had to tell him that this was pretty much my last chance to see them…

Me: Actually, on the 22nd, I’m leaving Korea, so this is my last chance to see you guys. I’m really glad I got to see you guys often while I was here.
SJ: *in a cute pleading voice* Don’t go~ (AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH)
Me: I don’t wanna leave either!

And then this happened.


OMG I was so flustered when he asked when I’ll be back with that cheeky smile that I accidentally lapsed into English hahahaha. He probably didn’t understand what I said, but I had to move on ㅠㅠ!! Wait for me Seungjun, I’ll be back!! I really want to cry now… Hahahaha. And it ended cutely because I kept shaking his hand, and then…

Thank goodness. He is the best and he’s always so sweet!!

YOUJIN

Okay I’m going to start off my account of Youjin because right when I got to him, he asked me, “Are you a fan of Seungjun?” BWAHAHAHA he called me out!! I told him that I liked all the members but yeah, Seungjun was my fave… If he noticed that, then wow… 

And then it was like another round of deja vu because I told him I was from Hawaii and that he should come, and he replied, “I want to go too!” LIKE THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WE SAID LAST YEAR AT THE FIRST FANSIGN LOL.

He looked over my questions and I told him they were from other international fans. He got super excited over the Overwatch question and his inner fanboy came out. 

Yellow post-it note:
Q: Which heroes (do you use) when you play Overwatch?
A: Roadhog, Reinhardt, and… the last part was a bit illegible but I think he wrote the name of a Korean Overwatch player named 후아유. [If anyone wants to help me out with deciphering that, it’d be much appreciated~]

He was so happy when talking about his mains for OW, but I had to tell him that I actually didn’t know the game at all loooool. I wish I could’ve nerded out with him but idk ㅋㅋㅋ He even asked me, “Isn’t Overwatch quite popular in America?” lmaooo which is true but yeah, I’m clueless.

Blue post-it note:
Q: What are you most afraid of??
A: Bugs! 1인칭 horror game.

So Youjin seems to be the least fearful in the group so I also wanted to know what scares him. He wrote “bugs” and I couldn’t believe like this guy didn’t flinch for the ghost prank or a VR zombie slashing him but he’s afraid of insects??

I’m not judging tho but dang.AND OKAY I SEARCHED UP THE HORROR GAME HE TALKED ABOUT AND THAT SHIZ IS NO JOKE.

OH HELLLLLL NOOOOO YOU CAN COUNT ME OUT OF THIS GAME CUZ SHIZ I WOULD PISS MYSELF DURING THIS VR EXPERIENCE

But Youjin is a cool chill guy who loves gaming so hit him up yo

HEEJUN

Heejun, Heejun, Heejun. You never know how he’ll be like. I heard from a friend that he’s different every time which is kinda true. The first time I met him, he was comical but on the quiet side, and we were kinda awkward… BUT THIS TIME WAS JUST OMG LOL.
He spoke some English to me even though I was talking to him in Korean which was cute. He said things like, “Where are you from?” and “Really?” Soooo silly. I complimented him on his English pronunciation and I DIDN’T NOTICE THIS UNTIL MY FRIEND SHOWED ME THE FOOTAGE SHE TOOK AND-

OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGG. Heejun’s also quite chill but he’s so funny agh.

Yellow post-it note: 
Q: Is there a concept you want to try?
A: BTS’ Blood, Sweat, Tears 
hOLY SHIZ IS IT WEIRD THAT I CAN ALREADY IMAGINE HEEJUN IN THAT KIND OF CONCEPT? he already bares his chest sometimes like omfg and I can totally see him pulling it off like shiz I AM READY

Blue post-it note:
Q: Heejun-ah~ Please write down your favorite color!!
A: Black, gray
Heejun forgot because he even asked himself out loud, “Which colors do I like?” I told him, “Why don’t you know??” HAHAHA. 

I told him I was l was leaving soon and he just replied, “When will you be back?” LOL. IDK, I wish I knew, then I wouldn’t have to leave y’all ㅠㅠ I told him bye and he was like, “bye bye!!!” 

Later on, the members picked random seat numbers from a box and the chosen fans could take a selca with them. SO LUCKYY. I WASN’T CHOSEN BUT UGH IT’S OKKK. 

Then they played 공기, which is a Korean bean game similar to Jacks. Jihun got really competitive and he almost kicked the stage LMAOOOO. Seungjun was really bad at it and he ended up last. Youjin was first, followed by Inseong, Heejun and finally Jihun secured a place by a hair. Seungjun’s punishment was dancing to their title track with aegyo LOOOOOL he tried his best but he looked so awkward omg

And that was it.
My last fansign with them.

I love them so much, because they’re all so wholesome and show their personalities unabashedly. All of them are SO DIFFERENT and the dynamics are just so interesting and charming. 

SORRY I cut it a little at the end but I have to go to class ㅠㅠ I’ll tweak this a bit later maybe but I hope y’all enjoyed this!!!!

Winter Anime Final Impressions

I was supposed to do this like two weeks ago but with Gundam ending so late and me getting swept up with many things, I didn’t have the time, but here’s a quick rundown of the best and worst of the Winter season. I’m gong from best to worst and also since I watched very few shows this season, I ‘m not gonna break them down in best/meh/worst

Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu: Sukeroku Futatabi-hen

A masterpiece to the very end, as heartbreaking as it was full of joy and love. There was this weird insinuation at the end that didn’t sit well with me at all and I’m not sure why they felt the need to do it, but I can overlook it because the rest of the picture is so wonderful and special and heart-wrenching. When Konatsu asked Yakumo to make her his apprentice, I actually cried. What a beautiful show. Don’t let the obscure antique Japanese art keep you from experiencing one of the best anime of this decade.

Ao no Exorcist: Kyoto-hen

I was a bit worried about this one because lately, when an “old” show gets a sequel many years after it last aired, said sequel turns out underwhelming and poorly done. See D.Grayman HALLOW (which also adapted my favorite arc from that manga) and Berserk (production values aside, the decline of this is due to Miura’s gross storytelling, so I guess it was inevitable). But I was more than surprised and ecstatic to see this rendition of the Kyoto arc did justice on the source material, with excellent production values, a good pace and wonderful emotional and action scenes alike. AoEx is one of the finest examples of the battle shonen genre and that translated wonderfully to this new iteration of the anime. I can only hope we’ll see Izumo’s and Shura’s arc eventually too.

ACCA-13-ku Kansatsuka

I was a Little on the fence on this one at the start, but once they laid down all the cards and tied all the loose threads, it became absolutely amazing. I’m sorry I ever doubted you Natsume Ono, your ability to craft smart and fascinating adult stories shall never be questioned again. Definitely worth checking out if you want to try something different to your usual anime genres. Helps that the visuals are really interesting and that Mauve is such a bae. I still feel Jean was the weakest link with his absolute nonchalance, but even that somehow worked at the end. Definitely worth going through the somewhat slow initial episodes.

Yowamushi Pedal: New Generation

NGL i’m not a fan of Kaburagi, he’s so much like Naruko I don’t feel he adds anything to the team. But this is now officially the Teshima show and that compensates for the snooze that is Kaburagi because Teshima has become so fabulous and cool I’m just excited every week to see what he’ll do next. Also the First-year race was a true highlight and I’m very disappointed Sugimoto didn’t make the cut, they did a fantastic job in making him likable, so it was sad to see him lose. Hopefully he’ll get to assist Imaizumi when they’re 3rd years.

Little Witch Academia

This show’s a lot of fun, with really sweet animation and it also sports the Best Girl of the season, Sucy Manbavaaran, although I gotta say there were a bit too many fillerish episodes and it was frustrating to see them take so long to get the plot going. I’m not hating on the show, it is in fact extremely entertaining, but it’s a little lacking on the plot department. Hopefully we’ll get more of that on the second cour.

Classicaloid

I’ve never been happier of not quitting a show as I am about Classicaloid. By episode 3 I was on the verge of giving up because it wasn’t what I had expected, but I kept going and I ended falling so hard in love with this show I’m ecstatic it’s getting a second season. Once I embraced the absurdity, it became the best comedy of the season, and I honestly would watch Schubert’s fishy misadventures for 52 weeks a year. It’s an acquired taste for sure and not easy to recommend, but if you’re willing to let go of all reason, you’re sure to have a good time.

All Out!!

I have a lot of love for this show and its characters (and Sekizan’s ridiculous hair), but I’m afraid the pacing they chose basically doomed them because with the abysmal sales, it seems unlikely we’ll ever see a second season and therefore we’ll never get to see if Jinko does get to Hanazono. It’s a perfectly competent sports series, that does a really good job of developing its huge cast, definitely much better than the likes of Prince of Stride or DAYS, but its inconclusive ending is quite frustrating. I really do hope we get to see more of these boys, but Madhouse’s never been all that good with the whole getting-sequels-done so…

Kuzu no Honkai

In spite of its low ranking, this is actually a really good show and a unique take on teenage female sexuality that you wouldn’t normally see in this mostly sexist medium. Hanabi made for a truly interesting protagonist and I liked seeing her explore herself and her relationships. I was however quite disappointed by how little focus we actually had for Hanabi and Mugi’s relationship. I felt there was more telling than showing in that regard, especially in the latter half of the show. The ending was pretty good and mature in spite of everything, and as always, I’m just really fond of all the vaginal imagery in the ED animation. Could’ve done without Moca though.

Gundam: Tekketsu Orphans

At the end of the Fall season, I expressed my concern about pointless, meaningless deaths. Clearly the Gundam writers thought I wasn’t concerned enough because the amount of characters that died pointless deaths went on to, I think, the double digits. I wouldn’t have minded the carnage if there had been some sort of payoff to the sacrifices. For example, if Shino hadn’t stupidly and conveniently missed his one shot because the show couldn’t afford to kill Rustal yet. I always felt Orga, Mika and Akihiro had a ton of death flags looming over their heads, but I certainly didn’t expect all three of them to get to the chopping block. Orga’s death was particularly random and pointless, but then again, what they did with Orga in general was very confusing. That he agreed to McGillis’s sketchy propositions to become “king of Mars” never made a whole lot of sense to me and that’s the result we got. I’ll also never get over how creepy and weird the whole Atra giving Mika a baby thing was. In short, I have very mixed feelings about it.

I could write thousands of words for everything that was wrong with this series but I think it wouldn’t make justice to the absolute experience that is watching this amazing trainwreck. Go watch it to see a masterclass of how not to anime. Honestly I had such a good time hating this show, it was so horrible in every possible way. Good job GoHands, even animate, who sponsored this show, won’t give it any publicity.

Super Lovers

I’m not sure of how this production team managed to put out 20 episodes of nothing actually happen. Like you just have to give kudos to the writers for managing to simply not do anything over the course of 6~ hours of content. No drama, no decent comedy, no character development, not even relationship development in a BL romance. It’s kind of amazing how pointless the whole thing is. The dog’s still cute and the relationship is still creepy and gross and that’s about all there is to say about this.

Although most of the shows I watched turned out great, it did feel like a weaker season because there wasn’t that much that was interesting (my Wednesdays were literally empty). Or maybe everything looks lackluster in this post-Yuri on Ice world D: But there was Rakugo and rakugo is good and I’m glad we live in an age in which such a niche, quiet and adult artistic show could be made and tell a complete story.

Apartment AUs to consider
  • The pet bird that you have overlooking your balcony shit talks me whenever I go out on my own balcony.
  • Please do something about your cat it keeps breaking into my apartment via the windows and I don’t know how. Plus it knows how to open fridges.
  • Look I know that life is difficult and we all have ways to cope but do you really have to do so with loud Dupstep music  at 3 in the morning? (Bonus points if the dubstep listener is the cute/tiny one)
  • Every time you cook you set off the smoke alarm so you know what I’m just going to teach you how to cook.
  • I found you passed out in front of my door so I just dragged you into my home and put you on the couch please don’t scream.
  • I don’t know if you know this but I can hear you singing anime theme songs in the shower every morning and I like almost all the shows you watch.
  • Wow my pet snake looks so cute this morning and I’d be even happier if I actually had a pet snake.
  • My apartment key apparently also works on your apartment door? (Also I accidentally let your cat out.)
  • We both have 3DSs’s and Street pass each other every day and have conversation using the personal message feature (and sometimes we play games together)
  • You sleepwalk a lot and sometimes you knock on my door so I have to lead you back to your apartment.
  • You took the last of my favorite snack from the vending machine next to our apartment. Battle me in Pokemon for it?
  • Someone keeps printing out cute cat pictures/messages on my wireless printer and I’m determined to find out whom.

Aw snap it’s time for another round of Cosplay Basics, or, Stuff You Probably Already Know!

I am not particularly good at wigs.  There’s something about them that seems to have a personal vendetta against me.  Although I styled almost all of my own wigs in the past few years, I’ve gone back to commissioning simply for ease.  There’s no point in getting stressed out over something I don’t like doing, and don’t feel like I have a talent for!

But even if you’re not getting into any major wig styling, there are a few basic things that you should have on hand!

1) The first thing you’ll need is a wig brush, or comb.  Everyone has their preferences, my favorite is a wire wig brush like the one pictured.  You can actually get this kind in the dog care section.  Mine’s lasted years and I have no complaints about it. 

Combs are something a lot of people prefer, and I use for small touch ups like fixing bangs. 

The only thing you want to avoid are soft plastic or bristled brushes.  They create a lot of static, and that’s a major cause of tangles.

2) Not pictured is a foam wig head.  These are crucial for detangling as well as styling any parts that you can’t do while wearing the wig.  However, they are smaller than the average head, so it’s recommended to not do any tight styling on this.

To hold your wig in place while you work, quilter’s pins are great.  They don’t have any edges for the wig to tangle on, they’re long, and they’re colorful so you don’t accidentally leave any in your wig when you take it off the foam head.  Not that I have ever… done that… I hear it’s really painful….


3) The third thing is probably the best invention ever.  It’s a razor comb!  Razor combs are phenomenal for getting a nice edge on your wig, rather than the blunt cut scissors can give unless you know how to use them properly.  It’s also almost impossible to hurt yourself while combing.  All you have to do is comb, and the razor slices the hair off!  They’re great for bangs in particular.

While you can get disposable combs at places like Sally’s Beauty Supply, they’re a tad expensive and go dull fast. However, a razor comb with replaceable blades, like this, only ran me $3 for the comb itself, and $10.00 for 100 blades (4) , on ebay.

5) Use big clips to hold the hair out of the way while you style.

6) And finally, we have a wig stand for foam heads.  This fits on the edge of a table or shelf (you screw it in to tighten it.)   However, I much prefer to use a free stand–I found that my dressform’s stand works wonderfully.  That way, you don’t have to worry about bumping against the table or shelf while you’re working!

So maybe you learned something, maybe you didn’t.  Feel free to add any of your own advice in reblogs!

I found out my father has a replication of an old Hagaddah

Not just any Hagaddah, the Sarajevo Haggadah (that’s the explanation booklet)

Let’s open it up

The first page shows the story of Adam and Eve and the beginning of the story of Noah

But where is the story of Passover? It’s a Hagaddah

Here it is. In the bottom picture on the left Yocheved is putting baby Moshe in the Nile

After that the Plagues are drawn and then the parting of the Red Sea

I think this is the last picture. Moshe preaching, then crowning Yehushua as the leader and then the Beit HaMikdash

Oops, this the last picture. Jews leaving the synogogue.

What comes next?

The actual Hagaddah, and wow, look, this is amazing, IT’S A DRAGON!!!!

ביד חזקה ובזרוע נטויה ובמורא

Look, here is the beginning of Halelu

And here’s DAYENU!!! (My favorite part of the Seder is screaming out Dayenu at the top of my lungs)

It says here ‘chorus’. Imagine people 400 years ago reading this same word that we use today but in such a different context

And last of all, the last page. ‘Written in 1609′ it says. Actually, it says  “Revisto per mi Gio[vanni] Dom[enico] Vistorini 1609” which means “ surveyed by me, Giovanni Domenico Vistorini, 1609 ″. That note is to show that it doesn’t go against any of the teachings of the Church. The Haggadah was actually written sometime in the mid-14th century.  😳

Thank you so, so, so much to @jewishhenna for correcting me (also, parts of my correction are his words). Thank you

When YouTube Meets Superstar (Harry Styles)

Summary: A sort of prequel to YouTube Trivia, in other words the boyfriend tag video.


An Instagram post, that’s how we’d decided to tell people we were dating. I never liked the idea of making a supper long video or tweet to explain nor justify why I was dating someone, it just wasn’t my preferable choice of confirmation unless it was the only way. But not in this case so we opt to posting one of our favorite photos together. Mine was a four part picture from a photo booth we’d been and I ended up loving the silly/cute faces and posses we did, Harry’s in the other hand was different his was somewhat cheesy, it was from last years holiday to Costa Rica the picture had been taking from one of our friends and had actually turned out really good seeing as we didn’t know it had been taken. We were on the porch of the beach house we’d rented for the time being, me leaning on Harry’s chest as he had his arms around me as we laughed from something our friend Mark had probably said.

Ever since my tweeter had been flooding with people asking us to do some sort of video. It was definitely a struggle but after much pleading and kisses I’d convinced Harry of doing a video. And that was exactly what we were about to do. I had my phone ready as I looked at myself in the view finder one last time.

“You look great love, can we please just start the video and be done with it?” Harry asked already over with it

“Don’t be so moody Styles, you may not want to do this right now but by the end of the video I know you’ll want to make more with me” I said winking at him as I pressed record

“Sure I will..” He said sarcastically

“Hello everyone and welcome back to my channel” I started my normal into ignoring Harry’s little remark “As you can see today I’m joined by a very special someone, would you like to introduce yourself?” I asked turning to look at Harry

“Hi, I’m Harry” He said nervously

“Now about a month ago we posted some photos on Instagram confirming a curtain suspicion you’ve all had for quite a while now but apart from the photos we didn’t say anything regarding to the situation.” I explained

“Can I just say that I don’t think we needed to explain anything, I mean the photos kind of say it all” Harry bumped in

“Yeah they pretty much did. But ever since that happened you guys have been constantly asking us to do any type of relationship based video, more specifically the boyfriend tag. So without further due lets start this thing, shall we?” I said with my phone in hand to which he nodded “Okay first question; Where did we meet?” Asked looking at him

“Is this kind of like I have to guess it right or who says it first?” He asked

“No..” I frowned chuckling “It’s just like a conversation about these things”

“Oh so like us informing them about it” He said to which I nodded “Okay, okay. Well if we’re talking first meet it was at a party that.. was it Ed the one who throwing the party?”

“Yeah it was Ed. As you guys know we’re both good friends with Ed and I’d previously told him about my crush on Harry to which he thought would be a good idea to throw a party, invite us and in the process try to ‘hook us up’” I said making air quotations

“Ugh.. I don’t like that term..” Harry said squinting his face

“Me neither but it was what he was trying to do” I said shrugging in the process

“Yeah I remember Ed and I were talking about something and he kept looking around every so often and asked him who he was looking for, after a while you showed up because he was all like 'Hey there’s someone I want you to meet’ and we walked over to a small group of people you were talking to and yeah that’s pretty much it.” Harry explained

“Umm where was out first date?” I read out “This is actually quite funny because a lot of people always presume we went to like a super fancy restaurant or did something luxurious but we didn’t, it was an amazing date nonetheless” I said smiling

“Yeah I’ve seen comments like that being made but we had been good friends before even thinking of being something else and she’d been to my place a fare amount of times before so I invited her over, made dinner and we ended up talking and watching movies all night.” He mentioned

“It was good. Okay, what was our first impressions of each other?” I said thinking back to when we first met “I think my first impression of you when actually meeting you not from like videos of you doing interviews or anything like that, I just remember thinking 'Oh lord he is as attractive as I thought he would be and I’m going to kill Ed for doing this.” I finished up laughing to which he joined

“This is going to sound bad but my first impression of you was that you had a really nice body..” He said making me gasp

“What!?” I said trying to sound shocked and slightly ofended “So you just liked my body that much you decided to talk to me?” I asked with a raised eyebrow

“Well not to that point..” He started making me let out a loud gasp in a 'ofended’ tone “But I did like your body, you were wearing a fitted dress and it looked really good on you” He said shrugging

“So basically you’re with me because of my body that’s what you’re trying to say” I said looking away from him pretending to be disappointed

“What? Babe no.. That’s not what I meant you know that..” He said hugging me from the side and kissing my cheek in the process

“Sure Styles.. Let’s keep going shall we?” I said making a pop noise with my mouth before looking back at my phone

We kept on answering the various questions, me opting to skip a few since they were a bit silly. It was pretty fun and interesting to see what Harry would answer to some of the questions like what do we argue about the most, what is one food I dislike or who wears the pants in the relationship which had us a little rant about it. But over all it was a proper laugh.

“Uhh this one is good. What is something you do that I wish you didn’t?” I asked knowing exactly what it was and by the look on his face he knew as well

Groaning he said “I already now what you’re going to say..”

“Really? What do you think I’m going to say?” I said chuckling

“You’re going to say that I leave clothes in some places through the house..” He said with a little groan

“In some places?” I asked to which he closed his eyes “This boy leaves clothes everywhere and I mean everywhere throughout the house. I could be in the kitchen and see a shirt or jacket laying around.” I said laughing

We continued on a few more questions until it was time to finish.

“Okay last question; If I could live anywhere, where would it be?” I asked putting down my phone

“Oh this ones easy.” He said not having to think too much about it “(Y/N) liked to talk about Iceland a lot when we first met. And our first sort of holiday together was to Iceland, we liked going there so much that we actually bought a house there..” He said making my eyes go wide since I hadn’t said anything about this in my channel

“Harry!” I said shaking my head “I hadn’t told them yet..”

“Oh sorry..” He said with a half smile

“Just so you guys know we’re not going to move there or anything like that. We bought the house because the place we go to is sometimes really hard to find a place to rent so one day while we walked around I say a house that looked beautiful and it said it was on sale..” I explained “Long story short we bought the house but we aren’t going to move there”

“Not yet..” Harry murmured but not quiet enough and I knew the mic had caught

“Harry..” I said in a warning voice “Anyway that is all I have for today. I hope you guys enjoyed this video, if you did please give it a thumbs up and subscribe if your it already. I’ll see you again next week. Bye!” I said waving goodbye as Harry joined

Getting up I went and turned off the camera and started disconnecting everything to start and put things away. Looking back at Harry I smiled and said.

“So how was that for your first video?” I asked with a smirk

“It was actually fun..” He said getting up and coming next to me “I might do it again sometime” Leaning down he kissed me then started to walk out the room

“I’ll take that to word Styles!” I said loudly as I finished up turning off the lights besides the camera.

one of my all time favorite things about WW!Ganondorf’s design is that, in a game called Wind Waker, where wind is a central element and theme, his eyebrows are shaped like the symbol for wind within the game

Love in a Hopeless Place

Title: Love in a Hopeless Place

Pairing: Domestic AU - Dean Winchester x Reader

Words: 5344 (I’m so sorry)

Warnings: ANGST (but mostly fluff, so don’t worry!), cursing, one tiny mention of sex, prejudice against the reader, really entitled and stuck-up people, a verbal fight, implied drinking (…and a partridge in a pear tree)

A/N: This was written for @supernatural-jackles ‘s birthday challenge. My prompt was the GIF that’s included near the beginning of the fic (this was also my first time adding a saved GIF to any post, so I really hope it works, haha). Happy birthday, darling.

This fic got away from me, so I’m sorry it’s so long lol. Also, I apologize if any of it seems kind of rushed since I’ve had this mostly written for so long, but I couldn’t find a way to write some parts till today. Whoops.

This was sort of inspired by New Man by Ed Sheeran. :)

Any and all mistakes are mine and mine alone since this is sort of unedited. Constructive criticism and feedback is much appreciated!


Ever since Dean moved to the little town on the Pacific Coast, he had heard rumors of the Y/L/N family. He was always told to stay away–not that they were dangerous or anything, but they were the wealthiest family in the entire city and apparently had an ego the size of their wealth.

Dean had met the parents once before when they came to get a check up on their car, and they were some of the most entitled people he’d ever encountered. After their visit, he was not excited to meet their daughter.

The years went by, and Dean had avoided conflict well enough. He hadn’t talked the Y/L/Ns again after they paid for Dean’s services, only a few polite waves every now and then, and Dean planned on keeping it that way.


“Duke! Come back here, boy! C’mon, I’ve got a treat for you!”

Dean looked up from his car and squinted against the sun.

When his eyes adjusted, he saw a girl running after a dog in the middle of the street.

The dog ran in erratic movements across everyone’s lawns, making patterns in the morning dew. The girl stopped on the sidewalk in front of Dean’s house, putting her hands on her knees and trying to catch her breath. Her face was red from exhaustion, her jeans and sneakers had mud on them, and her hair was a mess from running. She looked up and met Dean’s curious gaze. His eyes widened slightly in recognition when he realized who she was.

Y/N Y/L/N.

Dean had only run into her once or twice in the two years he’d lived in town, and not once had he uttered more than a simple “hello.” From what he’d heard, Y/N was just as obnoxious as her parents, possibly worse.

But those were just rumors, right?

i got inspired by @fightwinandconquer ‘s Love Nikki collages that i decided to make my own! i didn’t really wanna be a copycat so instead i made what i think nikki’s instagram would look like! (videos of momo, pictures of her & her friends, her makeup/clothes, etc.) 

my favorite part of working on this was creating the last photo, which i spent like an hour on trying to find a nice example of someone holding a polaroid, finding a proper picture to put inside of it, & making sure it actually look like Nikki, Yoko, and Kimi in the picture! the pic in full is under the cut bc i’m super proud of it.

i’d like to think it was Timi who took the picture ! i would’ve added a bit with her in the collage but there wasn’t enough squares :/

Today (or yesterday) is (or was) the first anniversary of Ever After High ‘Epic Winter’ movie (August 5/6).

Last week, I challenged myself to make DexterXRaven-kissing-scene edit that looked exactly like DaringXRosabella in Epic Winter movie.

THEN I DID IT! 😄 (see the first picture) I finally made ‘DexterXRaven kissing scene’ edited photo, so that picture looked like real as Darabella-kissing-scene screenshot.

However, some picture parts on my edit cannot be fixed. That’s why manipulating the picture parts (and adding color effects on the background and foreground) is so hard, so I tried my best until the best-enough results. I made that DexterXRaven edited photo to cheer myself and DexterXRaven shippers up.


Question: Which of these couples do you prefer? DexterXRaven? DaringXRosabella? Or both?

PS: PLEASE like, reblog and answer the question.

PPS: Just like last year, I DON’T LIKE EPIC WINTER MOVIE! It’s NOT because of Darabella (although I kinda ship Darabella), but it’s ACTUALLY because no Dexven/Rexter moments on EW movie and also because my least favorite couple Dexpid appeared on EW movie 3 TIMES!

shajwanh  asked:

What is the best book for Anatomy? Thanks...

My favorite book is Netter’s Atlas of Human Anatomy, it’s a well-illustrated pictorial guide.

My second favorite is Rohen’s Color Atlas of Anatomy because it uses actual pictures of cadavers and incorporates MRIs, CTs, and Xrays for some sections. However, after a long day of studying in the cadaver lab the last thing I wanted to look at was more pictures of cadavers, which is why it’s not at the top of the list.

Clinical Anatomy made Ridiculously Simple gives a great overview, but it is very basic and I would not recommend it as your only resource.

There are also a lot of good anatomy coloring books, which are fantastic for kinesthetic learners, but do take a lot of time to complete.

Kyle: Yes, I have. I’ve worn his parka too much that it lead him to buying me one last christmas. I love it a lot. The color’s really nice and-

Kenny: No need to explain, Kyle. I got a photo of you in it. In fact, this is actually one of my favorite photos of you. You’re pretty photogenic, honestly.

Kyle: What? You have a photo of me in it?

Kenny: Yup! Lemme show you.

Kyle: Did you take this?

Kenny: No. Craig did. You know how he is with taking photographs. Stolen pictures are his profession.

Kyle: Pfft-

Last night I went to glass animals w my friend Meg and few of her friends and WOW OH WOW!!!! So they are like actually my favorite band and their song Agnes is actually my favorite song of all time and getting to hear all of my favorites live was incredible but that one took it ALL. Tbh wanted to cry but me and meg aren’t that close so I restrained hahaha but like!!!!! All of the hundreds of miles I’ve run while listening to that album like I end almost every run by listening to Agnes and all I pictured the whole time was sprinting into the dracut high parking lot on a summer night and running over the Harvard bridge and like THE OTHER SIDE OF PARADISE and YOUTH like youth makes me feel so young n free and it’s what I listen to before going out and while walking around Boston so that one is like walking home at night with the prudential center lit up, take a slice is taking shots in my room with erin, I sing the lyrics “I’m gonna fuck my way through college” way too emphatically for someone who’s never had sex, and Mama’s gun is also running but like a more chill running and gooey was sitting in a BC basement and like POPLAR ST was the first glass animals song I heard and I just… everything. It was everything. I never ever ever wanted it to end.

Boy, I want you to be happy, free to run, get dizzy on caffeine- You’ll be happy all the time, I know you can make it righttttttttt

Practice Run Chapter 10

I need to thank my amazing betas @notanislander and @booksrockmyface, who’s wonderful advice and guidance have been priceless!  I also have to thank @mtk4fun for walking through some plot points with me.  :)

“This is awesome,” I say as I check over my revised class schedule, slated to begin on February second. No classes at all on Mondays and Fridays, and only three courses total, with one of them being a music appreciation course usually taken by freshman. The reduced credit hours mean that I can finally start saving for a car, and more importantly, start looking at engagement rings for Katniss.

I’ve never actually seen Katniss wear any type of jewelry, not even earrings, so I can’t imagine she’d want any sort of a fancy ring. Which is fine with me since even in the preliminary poking around that I’ve done, I’ve been shocked at some of the prices I’ve seen. I’ve also started to take notice of the rings worn by some of my friends.

For example, Delly’s ring is simple, just a single small, square-shaped diamond set in a gold band, while Cecelia’s ring from Patrick is larger and more elaborate, but seems bulky on her finger. Cassandra’s ring has a ruby instead of a diamond, which she told me is her birthstone, and the shop manager, Andrea, only wears a silver-colored band. Then there’s my sister-in-law, Casey, who has one of the largest diamonds I’ve ever seen in her ring, which probably cost my brother over half a year’s salary. My mom must’ve have been in on that purchase somehow.

Shuddering at the thought of my mother trying to influence my jewelry choices, I pick up my new sketchbook, opening it to a clean page. Dr. Aurelius was right about me. I hadn’t realized how much I missed drawing until I started up again. I’ve already filled about a third of the pages of one book with various drawings, almost all including Katniss in some form or another. There’s pictures of her smiling as she sits across the coffee shop table from me. Pictures of her singing along during worship at church. One picture of my big hand holding her tiny one, which she actually watched me draw last Friday evening while we were waiting for our group to show up. And my favorite, a picture of her sleeping on my futon, my t-shirt balled up in her hand, looking as serene as I’ve ever seen her.

I stroke over the page with my pencil, watching as the slender fingers of Katniss’s left hand take form. Once I’m satisfied with the likeness of her hand, I study it closely, chewing on the end of the pencil as I try to imagine what sort of design would look best. I can’t picture any sort of ring that would stand up off her finger, as it would likely get in the way of her shooting, so that leaves only a band style. Maybe I can design a band inlaid with her birthstone? Simple, but still pretty and feminine and somewhat unique for her.

“Yikes!” I say out loud. “I still need to find out her birthday!”

Clockwork Prince 1878

Clockwork Princess 1878

The Dark Artifices: 2012

Hi Cassandra! I was wondering, are Charles Fairchild and Matthew Fairchild brothers? — eyeslikeidris

Yes. They are Henry and Charlotte’s children. Charles is 24. Matthew is 17.

Was the reason that Will and Tessa’s daughter was named “Lucie” because “Lucie” was a character in one of Will and Tessa’s favorites books, The Tale of Two Cities? — multifandomgirl101

Yes. :)

I love your books! I just saw the character portraits for the Last Hours and loved them but what has been bugging me is that I haven’t seen a portrait of Sophie from the Infernal Devices. She was not on any tarot cards and is there a picture of her I just missed? Will there be one of her in the future? Thanks for your time, just asking because Sophie Collins is one of my favorite characters! — chelseachic

There’s actually two versions of the Sophie card. One has her standing alone as she Ascends:

And the other shows her in gear, with Gideon.

I think Cassandra Jean did a terrific job with both so I am not sure which one will be the final!
