the way jane was looking at her first

I have been a JoJo fan since I was literally 6 years old. Her album was the first that I ever owned; I literally taught myself how to sing by listening to her over and over as a child.
It confused me when after her highly successful sophomore album (The High Road) she stopped releasing music; it made no sense. Come to find that she and her mother naively signed a record deal when they were poor and vulnerable and looking for a way out. They did not read the fine print.
The label had legal ownership of her name and her voice and kept her in limbo for upwards of 7 years, barring her from releasing any new music unless it was on their terms.
This is why upon hearing that Camila Cabello left Fifth Harmony and reading the official Fifth Harmony statement I noticed certain things did not add up.
Reading into it further, I noticed the circumstances under which the groups deal was signed; the majority of the group were 15/16 years old when they signed their contracts, and without going into the details (you can find them with a simple search on Google/twitter), their management and label found a loophole that enabled them to essentially have full ownership of the girl’s image/music/name without their realising, as they were so young and genuinely uneducated on the ins and outs of the industry.
It took JoJo 7 years and a hell of a fight to sue her way out of her deal - if you are a Fifth Harmony fan, I urge you to voice your outrage and help these girls out. I had the misfortune of hearing the leaked audio of one of the girls crying/distraught over the issue, referring to herself and the girls as ‘slaves’. Contractually speaking, as of right now, they are just that.
Speak up, voice your concern, have it make the forefront of media/the news. These girls are contractually trapped and unable to speak for themselves; please shout as loudly as you can for them.
As an artist myself, I know that your doing this will be intrinsic to their respective careers in the future.
Do you want your idols to stick together out of contractual obligation, or do you want them to be free and wholeheartedly thrive?
Speak up, and #FreeFifthHarmony.
And best of luck to you and the girls.

Yes, this is turning out a lot longer than I thought it would be. Let me know if you’re getting bored!


Jane was quiet on the walk back from the Marriage Bureau. The team was a few yards ahead of them, but none of them looked back. Giving the new married couple some privacy, Kurt assumed, to reflect upon their folly.

Jane’s head was bowed as she walked beside him, her hand tucked once again in his arm, and he wished he could see her face.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to hold off getting into character creation for Andromeda until after my first playthrough.  I have some ideas, but ultimately they always change.  Also, since I plan my first playthrough to be as Sara Ryder because I’m love her, any thoughts on what my Ryder was going to look like have been tossed out the window.

Basically, I’m walking into Andromeda like ??? because I have no clue and no expectations.  It’s kind of fun this way.

BLINDSPOT APPRECIATION FORTNIGHT

Day 12 - Favorite Team Moment(s)

My favorite moment - and possibly that of many other fans - is the pizza party to welcome Jane onto the team (Episode 9 - Authentic Flirt). Although the party is cut tragically short, here we have best buddies Weller and Patterson demolishing the pizza box practically single-handed and looking completely at ease. Jane, self-conscious at first, soon fits right in and it’s not long before she and Patterson are off in a fit of giggles. Reade is laughably over-dressed, but the team is used to that. Only Zapata seems a little subdued - understandable considering the threats made against her by Carter and what she did to his bug on the way over. 

Uncoupdefil: Christina, what is your favorite book and why?
Christina: I have two and both are categorized as classic English novels. The first is Middlemarch by George Eliot simply because I adore his writing style. It is filled with real emotion that is almost like he is writing your own thoughts. The other is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte because I feel I can relate to some events in the novel. I love those two so much that I simply cannot pick one over the other

~~~

Look at me bullshitting my way through this answer!

@uncoupdefil asked this one and I had a feeling of what her favorite books where but I’ve never actually read any of them so I had to look up someone else’s reasoning on why they like it. I figured her opinion wouldn’t be too far away from the reference

Admit it Draco
  • Blaise: hey mate you know I've been noticing the way you look at the Gryffindor's table recently.
  • Draco: I'M NOT OGGLING AT GRANGER OKAY BLAISE SO PLEASE SHUT UP AND LET ME FINISH MY CHARMS ESSAY OH AND DID YOU NOTICE HOW GRANGER LOOKS AMAZING WITH THOSE BRAIDS DURING DINNER.
  • Blaise: yep totally not oggling Granger mate, but you know Granger seem to have grown over the summer I mean I know I wouldn't mind having her as my girlfriend.
  • Draco: *writes* of course granger grew over the summer you dolt.....WAIT WHAT NO YOU CANT HAVE HERMIONE JANE GRANGER SHE'S MINE I CLAIMED HER FIRST.
  • Blaise: well that sums it all up, thanks mate.
Jane Doe || Open

Abby was on her way to work. It was also Logan’s first day at Seattle Grace so she was excited to see him once she gets to work. It was just another Wednesday afternoon, just another drive to work. She usually stopped at a drive-thru on her way and bought herself a cup of coffee and a sandwich before work but she didn’t do that today. She was running late that day.

Stopping at a red light, she looked at the time. “Crap.” She said to herself before she watched the red light turn green. She began to move, not noticing a car speeding towards her from her right side. The car hit hers and was tossed in the air before landing upside down on the sidewalk.

Her leg was stuck, her right arm split open. Her head was bleeding and her piece of broken glass sliced her left cheek. She couldn’t breathe, the felt her seat belt choking her. There was one thing that kept running in her mind… Jay.

Jay had been through the exact same thing and his loss had affected her a whole lot. Abby prayed that Logan shouldn’t have to go through that pain. She needed to be alive. She needed to be with Logan. She can’t die. She can’t leave Logan and put him through what she went through.

Tears escaped her eyes and the pain in her head increased, causing her to shut her eyes and hope that help would arrive soon.

THE UNBELIEVABLE GWENPOOL #1 IS GETTING RAVE REVIEWS!

Looks like Marvel has another hit character on their hands! In the same way they made Kamala Khan, Miles Morales, SpiderGwen, Jane Foster Thor, and many others immediate fan favourites, it looks like Gwenpool is heading straight for the top. The first issue of her ongoing series is getting rave reviews from critics, with many already stating DC’s Harley Quinn has some serious competition for zaniest female in comics. 

Sometimes I think I would respect people who hate Laura and Sharon and Pepper and Jane more if they’d just admit it’s because they’re in the way of their prefered ships.

But then I think “I could never respect someone who hated Laura, Sharon, Pepper, or Jane.” (Especially Jane. I don’t even talk about Jane or Jane hate because I get all twitchy because how dare people hate this wonder science loving socially awkward ball of fluff who, when her man is elsewhere, shrugs and gets back to her first love (Science) and keeps it moving cause she has stuff to find and discover. Jane should be a role model, something we point out to little girls and say “Science isn’t just for boys, look at her!” And instead people are whinging because she has a life and her romance with Thor isn’t some all consuming passionate thing but, rather, is something almost calm considering their circumstances and sweet and full of respect and Thor’s shameless ‘whatever, my girlfriend is smart and gonna get a noble peace prize or whatever you humans give out for being amazing.“ bragging because yes she’s pretty and that’s nice but GUISE did Thor tell you about how fucking smart his girlfriend is? And how she’s basically ahead of every human ever when it comes to her field and is either brave or so obsessive she can’t remember to be afraid of stuff…oh. four time today? Well here he goes again.)


Whoops, this suddenly became about Jane. See? This is why I don’t talk about her.
