Last Christmas

I gave you my heart

But the very next day you gave it away.

This year

To save me from tears

I’ll give it to someone special.

The thought of being in the same room with James Buchanan Barnes was making you feel nauseous. It had been so long since the two of you had seen each other that you didn’t know how to react to him. 

It was almost exactly a year since you saw him. Since the last time the two of you spoke face to face.

He was one of my best friends since i was 12, and he was on leave from the Marines. We had a window of about 4 days where we could see each other. He never followed up.

He once admitted to me drunkenly that he always wondered if we would end up together. I wondered too.

But he’s going to ship out for his first tour in February, and then he’s going to marry her- we both know it. And i’m with someone that I can see myself ending up with.

The last time I saw him, we buried a friend. I pray the next time I see him it’s not him we’re burying

Please be safe, friend.

Concept: Christmas was just around the corner and with the holiday mood, you and all the NCT members decided to do Secret Santa. You quickly set everything up with Jaehyun; taking the time to write all the names on little slips of paper and pile them into the hat. As Jaehyun gathered the boys, you wondered about who you would get. When everyone was in a circle chatting away, you went around gleefully having each member choose one until the last slip remained. Much to your surprise you ended up getting Jaehyun, thankfully getting him a gift was an easy deal because after all he was your boyfriend. When it was finally time to do the gift exchange, you were surprised to see that Jaehyun got you as well. Both of you had wide eyes and red cheeks. All the other boys complained that it was rigged and you both had it too easy, but you were too consumed by happiness to let their words bother you. Being handed a little wrapped package you could feel the excitement building up in your stomach. You opened it quickly and was shocked to bring out a small, black velvet box. Your eyes met Jaehyun’s and you slowly opened it to see a silver ring; on the inside of the ring both your names were connected with a heart. It was a promise ring, he explained and his promise was to love you forever.

The last time Sara and Snart looked at each other was after the kiss and just before Len’s death. And now they have a chance to meet again. Let’s stop thinking that it might be past!Snart or that it’s the hallucination or any other crap. Just imagine this moment… when they look at each other. The relief on Sara’s face. She thought she would never see him again. But she does. And Snart, poor Snart who was ready to die to save them all. To save Sara, as well. He was ready to give up his future, their future together. And now he sees her. He thought he would never see her again. But he does. Just imagine this moment and cry with me.

One of my favorite things in Rwby is the bonds the characters share with each other, especially Team Rwby. So I really would have loved it if Blake had mentioned her team at some point in this episode. Or at least thought about them for a moment. Just something to show that they are still connected. Like, isn’t she at least worried about Yang? Last time she saw her, she was unconscious and was missing an arm. Not just Blake, all team RWBY members seem a bit disconnected from each other. I know they all have to deal with their own problems first but small hints to show that the bond is still there would have been nice to see.

i keep seeing people talking about how sam and bucky really actually dont like each other and like thats not the case at all???

like in this scene after sam says no and bucky moves over you can literally see him start to smile in the last split second like whens the last time someone said no to the winter soldier™ whens the last time someones first instinct with bucky wasnt fear??? lowkey buckys having the time of his life

and then in this scene!!!! bucky literally jumps in front of sam so peters kick would hit his arm instead of sams chest 

and then after this when they get outside sam tells steve to take bucky and go which would in turn get sam and the others arrested???? the levels to this shit???

like just because theyre petty assholes to each other (lmao) doesnt mean they dont genuinely care for each other and wouldnt ever let anything happen to each other, stop sleeping on sambucky theyre #Pure and #Real

This right here.

This is SO important.

When Yurio showed his ‘true agape’, Yuuri and Victor weren’t resentful, or intimidated, or anxious, or all that other crap you usually see between rivals.

They were genuinely happy for him

They were proud of how far he has come since they last saw him, they were excited for his performance. 

They know they’re much older, they know this is Yurio’s first time competing alongside the ‘grown ups’. And they fully support him. As it should be. 

And the way they turned to each and reacted at the same time… God, it just gives them the whole ‘real couple’ thing. 

I dont know if i make sense im just so emotional right now and im so happy this happened 

i love yuri on ice and the relationships portrayed here i love it so much 


We shot two or three days in the Sept. Jonathan Pryce is a lot of fun; I’ve enjoyed working with him this season. I was also with Finn Jones, who plays Loras, all that time. It was very moving and fitting that Finn and I should be together for those last three days and the brother and sister should go to their fate together, because you see the brother and sister relationship so beautifully over the years. They go to their deaths physically holding each other.

How could anybody ever see me and Lucas as a couple? 

Everybody does!  they’re like f i r e.


Nick Steinberg’s Fog Waves

In the words of the artist ​ Nick Steinberg:

For the last 8 years I’ve been shooting in the San Francisco area I have been absolutely obsessed with the fog. Night and day it’s what I live for and what defines my photographic style. I check the cams, satellites, and other forecasts to always be able to just get up and go. We even have a small group of about 20 of us known as, “Fogaholics” where we keep each other updated all the time as soon as we see it roll in.

Recently in my studies of the area I have discovered something amazing! During the summer months, when the fog is created from high amounts of inland heat, it gets too high to shoot in the bay area (including the Golden Gate Bridge) as it is usually above 1,000′ and the bridge sits at 746′. In addition, since it is coming from the Pacific ocean, the coastline is pretty much unshootable. So the only option is to hit up the high vantage points, one of the best being Mt. Tamalpais, which sits at 2,572′. Mt. Tam allows you to get, “above it all” and is literally heaven on earth as you feel on top of the world or almost on an airplane looking down on clouds. What I discovered from hundreds of trips up there is, when the fog rolls through and is at the perfect height and density, it will create wave-like movements as it contours the land. This is where I coined the term “Fog Waves” as it literally looks like waves that resemble the ocean.

I found that when playing around and experimenting with different shutter speeds in my camera it would either freeze the movement or accentuate the flow and make it more buttery and smooth. This is all done “In camera” and not photoshopped. I do this by putting on dark filters known as ND or Neutral Density filters that trick the camera into thinking it’s night time forcing a longer shutter speed. Doing this is how I am able to get these smooth effects and sometimes I shoot up to 2 minutes depending on the flow. Too long and it can turn to mush and too short will be too textured. Shooting fog is a study and takes a lot of patience, preparation, and knowledge of the area to catch it as it is very elusive. In the end though, the chase is always worth it and the views on Mt. Tamalpais are literally something out of a dream!

Even though we might draw further or nearer from each other depending on circumstance… you and i are bound, somehow.


this, eternal  (o.q)


Every night is the last night. Every time is the last time. There’s nothing destined about this. If circumstances aren’t tearing them apart, then it’s they themselves, who are running or distracted and yet… life keeps throwing them back together. They’ve been taught to look down upon what each other are. They aren’t each other’s constants; they are each other’s exeptions. They never expected to have the place they do in each other’s lives. It’s a choice.
