Why is Zendaya being cast as Mary Jane Watson such a big deal? I don’t understand why everyone has to make everything about race? You guys just need to remember that Hollywood is a business. They make decisions based on the best actor for the job and who will fill seats. I’m sure she’ll do a great job! There are real problems in the world people and freaking out about every little thing is why we’ll never get to a post racial society :)

As a dub for Hetalia season 6 has been announced, I want to send my best wishes to Taliesin Jaffe as he takes over the role of England/Britain.

I know most fans have been worried after what happened awhile back concerning the original voice actor, especially since England is such a beloved character for most, but I hope you will give Mr. Jaffe your support and at least give him the chance to show how he takes the role on.


1. Gillian Anderson is an actual angel. She is gracious and wonderful and she puts up with a lot to make herself available to her fans. That’s a whole other level of selflessness.

2. David Duchovny owns my ass. Now and forever. Despite those fucking white pants.

3. This fandom is absolutely amazing. The talent, the kindness, the passion that you all have for our show and its actors is so jawdropping.

4. @noamchimpsky is the actual sweetest. Seriously. @perplexistan is one of the best people I’ve ever met. Bar none. @muldersgirl34 is a riot and she might tell the best stories ever. @crossedbeams should get a medal of some kind for being such a rockstar. @thethirstisoutthere is my new favorite person. Mel, you know why. @storybycorey is the most multi-faceted talent in our fandom. Just trust me on that. And she’s a delight. @2momsmakearight made a shirt Gillian proudly wore all day today. She’s dead because of it. RIP Liz. And @piecesofscully, my boo, my bae, my other half, is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.

5. I am floored by how kind and funny and wonderful and respectful you all are. It was such a pleasure to meet so many people who have this crazy phenomenon of a show in common with me. It was so great meeting David and Gillian for those few minutes yesterday. But the highlight of my weekend was spending all the other minutes with YOU ALL. Waiting in line for hours, giggling at the penis on Gillian’s table, ogling David in that gray tshirt, cringing at the questions during the panel, posting stories, spiraling with you all. It was such an exhausting, emotional journey, but dammit, you all made it worth it. So thank you. From the bottom of my heart. Til next time! 👽💋

Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift to make first public appearance next month for award show date

TOM HIDDLESTON and TAYLOR SWIFT have become showbiz’s shining couple since I first revealed their secret relationship to the world in June.

Now, after months of dinner dates and secret holidays, they are planning to go official next month by making their first proper public appearance together at the Emmy Awards.

British heartthrob Tom is up for the Best Actor in a Limited Series or Television Movie gong for his role in BBC drama The Night Manager and Taylor is set to be by his side to celebrate.

An awards insider told me: “Tom normally doesn’t like his public life overlapping with his private life but he is so happy with Taylor that it’s the perfect time.

“The event organisers have extended an invite for a ‘guest’ to join him because they know if they walk the red carpet together it will make it the most talked-about show of the year.

“While the Emmys may be about celebrating the best shows on television, the organisers that weekend are looking for just one show — Taylor and Tom.

“While the Emmys may be about celebrating the best shows on television, the organisers that weekend are looking for just one show — Taylor and Tom.

The Brit actor is has been nominated for his role in The Night Manager

“The Emmys red carpet itself would give them the most publicity, and organisers have made it clear to Tom and his reps that she is more than welcome to join him.”

Taylor is no stranger to the Emmys having won the Original Interactive Program award last year.

But there is competition from other events who are vying to get them both together as guests.

I’ve learned the LA branch of Bafta is throwing a private tea party the night before the awards, which will be attended by the best British actors in town.

My source said: “The organisers have extended an invite to Tom and his guests, knowing that Taylor loves British tea, Downton Abbey and is a fan of many TV stars from this country.”

Jared, you are one of the best people in the whole world. I haven’t met you in person, but acts speak for people, and I’m telling you, you are wonderful. I really like you as an actor, eventhough i’ve only watched you on Supernatural, they way you interpreted Lucifer, Gadreel, Souless Sam…You totally nailed it. They were so different….You did great.

But one of the things i most admire about you is that you dedicate part of your life to make people love themselves, feel enough, just the way they are. And lots of people need that these days. The campaigns make them feel better, accept themselves, gain self-confidence, and all of that will lead them to happiness, which they deserve. And so do you.

You have wonderful friends and a wonderful family. And they love you and care about you. I know it might be hard but believe me: You are enough. You are great. And you deserve all the good things that will happen in your life. :D

Okay so I'm writing a play and having less than a week to finish it before I turn it in and possibly have it performed, and just really need to hear something positive to keep me going on it. And since you're the most positive person I know on tumblr, would you sprinkle the seed of optimism on me and my procrastinating ways?

You’re writing a play??? Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh, you are the coolest!! I really hope you wear a hat for at least 60% of the time you spend writing it. It’s basically the law. 

Your play will be amazing and there’ll be a really good bit in it where the lead actor does this thing with their jawline and the audience just gasps, and in 15 years’ time, when your play is being taught to Drama students all over the world, people will fight over who gets to play the lead role. It will inevitably go to the person with the best jawline. Some productions will necessitate a prosthetic jaw because no-one in the company had a jawline good enough. It’s always worth it, because your play is that damn good. 

Your play will be the sort of play that Hollywood actors quit the film industry to start doing. It will one day acquire a feature film adaptation, and the soundtrack will include lots of melancholic strings, and maybe a harp, but there’ll also be a bit with a banjo, because that’s the kind of eclectic genius that your play inspires. There will be a Tumblr fandom, of course. Don’t read the fanfiction. They get the main pairing totally wrong. 

GOOD LUCK, seriously! Writing a play is super rewarding, because honestly, hearing and seeing people perform your words and making them into something real and tangible is just the best. Nothing quite compares to finishing something and putting it out in the world, and seeing how people respond to it. With plays, the response is immediate and varied, and I think you’re going to love it! 

Ibuka Katsuhiko blog 2016.08.20 - "To Everyone"

(Translator’s note: I don’t know Ibuka’s work well, but I heard about what he did and was so impressed by his courage. I’ve been following the world of Japanese actors/idols/entertainers for going on ten years now, and this is still a rare and difficult thing. I hope for the best for him.)

Ib-log, 2016.08.20
To Everyone

There’s something I’d like to share with everyone who always reads this blog.

I think some of you may already know this, but on the “Ariyoshi Hanseikai - Midsummer Coming Out Special” television program broadcast just now, I, Ibuka Katsuhiko, came out as gay.

It’s been six years since I debuted.
I know I may have made some of the people who’ve supported me up to now sad.

I myself was very troubled over coming out.
It was something that needed courage and preparation.

At those times, the words my friends and coworkers said to me – “Kacchi should be Kacchi” – pushed me forward, and I made a decision.

I want you to know who I really am.
I want to work in this world I love as I am.
That’s what I thought.

I imagine the eyes of the world will still be harsh.
I think it probably won’t be all fun and games from here on out.

But from now on I want to singlemindedly do what I can to make even one more person smile.
I think of that as what I owe the people concerned with me, and more than anything the fans who have supported me every day.

To each and every person person concerned whose understanding I gladly received, I thank you from the heart.

This is getting long, but going forward please accept Ibuka Katsuhiko as an actor, talent, and model.

I hope you can somehow warmly watch over me.

Ibuka Katsuhiko

Any recommendations of chaptered phanfics to read?

Any chaptered fics by @insanityplaysfics ! And here are my few personal faves:

Imagine Living Like A King Someday - Phil is a boarding school student, and he has pretty much everything. His dad owns the school, he’s pretty popular, has the best room, gets all the best treatment – he’s the King. Dan is a cleaner/phil’s personal maid there, and he isn’t as lucky. Some students are assholes to Dan, including Phil at first. 

In My Way - Phil is less than impressed when Last Man Standing is getting filmed in his hometown. And he certainly doesn’t want anything to do with obnoxious, arrogant, so irritatingly perfect leading actor Daniel Howell.

Renegade - (tw) It’s World War 2. Phil, a young German soldier, is stationed in Denmark. There he meets Dan - a rebellious Danish school boy who is intent on making his job hell. But before long, they realise they have more in common than they’d have thought. How do you hide a friendship when you come from two different sides of a war?

So Many Stars - After graduating with his law degree, Dan decides to move to Japan to teach English for a year.

Before We Turn Into a Monster (With Two Heads) - (ao3) “Once this case is over, I’m getting a new job. Maybe one where I just sit in my bedroom and make videos about my life. That would be nice,” Dan muses dreamily to himself—or rather, mumbles indistinctly to himself, because it’s a little hard to articulate when you’ve been shoved into the trunk of a moving car, bound, and gagged.

Misfit - (wattpad) Dan is different. He’s learned to accept that. I mean, what choice did he have? He’s been this way since he was a baby. People might not have questioned him about talking to things that weren’t really there at that age, but he can’t remember a time he didn’t have people that ‘weren’t really there’ dancing around him.

UNPOPULAR OPINION OF THE DAY - J K Rowling really needs to stop with the Potter stuff now. 

Unless she releases a huge encyclopaedia which has obviously taken an extremely long time to write, and is in immense detail (like GRRM’s ‘A World of Ice and Fire’) I am past the point of caring about new stuff she releases. Because it’s not actually good quality anymore. It just feels like she’s feeding us crap because she believes we’ll eat it up - and it’s becoming problematic and not well researched *cough* History of Magic in North America *cOUGH* 

Honestly, I feel like the best way to describe this situation is how the actors from Merlin described the idea of them doing a follow on film from the TV show - that they would much rather people sit and beg constantly for Merlin to come back than for them to actually do something and then people go ‘Well that was crap.’

I preferred the days when we were like ‘I WANT NEW POTTER’ than now, when we’re being fed really crap quality stuff that doesn’t actually fit with the characters we know and love. It was better to want more than to have more and then be lost as to whether to accept it as canon or not.

Please, pLEASE Jo, stop before you ruin all of this

“What inspires me personally in my life, is a beautiful piece of writing. Something which is specific, delicate and beautiful,” says Kit Harington. “Blake’s The Tyger is an inspiring reflection of such writing and also captures the high performance empowerment of the Q60 – they are both an exploration of aesthetic beauty, primal ferocity, ambition and seduction.”

Melissa Bell, INFINITI’s Senior Director of Marketing said: “Kit Harington is a unique and refined talent. He is performance orientated with intelligence and a passion for his artistry and the Q60 has inspired a powerful performance from him in Tyger. In this one-minute drive we’re thrilled to take viewers on a test-ride through multiple emotions. The Q60 is a dynamic automobile, driven by one of the world’s best actors – a winning combination.” 

Harington’s Tyger film is one of three new films being released to mark the launch of the Q60. INFINITI are due to release web films in the coming weeks of Audio Engineer and Music Technologist guru and Sneaker Designer Sophia Chang. (source)

Here is this week’s Fic Rec!

1. Whirlwind (21k) by dolce_piccante

AU. Acclaimed actor, Hollywood heartthrob, and Oscar nominee, Harry Styles, seems to have the world at his feet, but seeks out an old friend when he needs a date for his big night.

2. The Inside (30k) by anomalation

Louis is a massive idiot who ends up in prison because of his boyfriend - though he should really make that his ex-boyfriend soon. Inside, he meets Haz, a young inmate who is very intimidating. Kind of.

3. Bloodline (177k) by banana_louis

Louis doesn’t know how to feel when his best friend, Liam, finds out about a brother that he never knew, who was placed for adoption before he was born and is bursting into his life at twenty-four years old.

Louis is very wary of the man who might replace him. He has always thought of Liam as his own brother.

What if Liam doesn’t need him anymore? What if there’s no room for Louis? After all, blood runs thicker than water.

Louis doesn’t like Liam’s new brother and he doesn’t even know him. That’s irrelevant, though.

He doesn’t like him. He doesn’t trust him. He doesn’t want him hanging around. He doesn’t want anything to do with him.

That is, until he meets him.

4. What A Feeling To Be A King Beside You (16k) by itsprobablylarry

“Tomlinson. Louis Tomlinson, Duke of Wellington, your highness,” the man, or boy considering he seems to be around Harry’s age or slightly older, says with a wink and a quick bow.

Huh. Duke of Wellington. Harry recalls once meeting the Duke of Wellington. He probably wasn’t a day over 7 years and honestly only remembers a mischievous boy with blue eyes that poured gravy on him. But now that he thinks about it, the Duke in front of him does have pretty, blue eyes as well. He’s also got a nice smile and a beautiful jawline covered in short stubble. His chestnut hair is done up in a perfect quiff and his dark navy suit is perfectly tailored to his body. He’s fit.

(Basically: Harry is the Prince of Wales and Louis is the Duke of Wellington. They fall in love.)

5. To Destroy a Dam (198k) by Evancalous

“Are you scared?” Louis focused on breathing: ‘In-out-in-out. This isn’t right. This isn’t even close to being right.’ Without thinking, Louis took his left hand and placed it on top of Harry’s.

AKA: Louis and Harry are best friends for six years. They lose touch, and sixteen years later, fate collides their paths into each other again.

6. Come As You Are (12k) by AFangirlFantasy

Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School’s
Class of 2006 Tenth Year Reunion.
