- weighted a grapefruit in my hands to see if i could justifiably describe something as “weighing as much as a grapefruit”
- done jumping jacks for 5 minutes straight so the memory of how exertion feels would be fresh in my mind
- googled images of butterscotch to see if “butterscotch” could be a hair colour
- casually stared at people at bus stops trying to figure out how i would hypothetically recreate their image in words
- written 7 different beginnings for a story to see which one i liked best
- gone to venice
- enthusiastically spoken dialogue aloud to myself to see how it sounds
- tried to read 3 books in one day
- experienced terrible things, reacting with “i can write about this”
- screamed incoherently at someone for turning on the tv while i was in the room, writing
- sat there perfectly still staring into space trying to imagine what getting a boner feels like
- “hey re-enact this scene with me”
- sat upside-down for ten minutes trying to get my brain to work
- squandered schoolwork and free time alike for years
Oh. My. God. What have I done? This was meant to be a quick little ficlet about Sherlock swooning over Captain Watson. It’s turned into a monster, over 6,000 words long. I blame @inevitably-johnlocked and the watchalong crew. An innocent screening of Mulan has turned into this smut fest.
I hope you all enjoy it, I tried to make it funny as well as sexy.
Warnings: military kink, public sex, swearing, a tiny bit of homophobia, Sherlock has a dirty mind, there is a scene that doesn’t have explicitly obvious consent but they both want it, there is a crime scene in this but I tried not to describe the body much, explicit sex happens and as it’s a smut fic they don’t use protection.
the fact that harry potter was going out with ginny weasley seemed to interest a great number of people, most of them girls, yet harry found himself newly and happily impervious to gossip over the next few weeks. after all, it made a very nice change to be talked about because of something that was making him happier than he could remember being for a very long time, rather than because he had been involved in horrific scenes of dark magic.
The S12 Premiere was exceptional. Such a brilliant episode overall and of course Emily did a marvelous job in her directorial debut.
THAT B&B hug. I mean, there are no words to describe how absolutely amazing that scene was. So much love and raw emotion and passion AND EXCUSE ME WHILE I GO WATCH IT 85748685968 MORE TIMES.
And then the Aubrey/Brennan hug which I just adored! That was so sweet and made me so happy <3
I know people are upset about Hodgins but I’m glad they didn’t choose to take the easy way out with a miracle cure. This is such an important storyline to tell and you rarely see disability portrayed realistically on screen…and I take offense to people claiming “Why can’t Hodgins/Hodgela be happy?” So people in wheelchairs/living with disabilities can never be happy?…right…I know it will take some time but I am certain that Hodgins and Angela will truly be happy and content with their life whether he’s in a wheelchair or not.
I think Zack was handled well but tbh I’m glad he’s gone until episode 11 now.
Disclaimer: I have spent QUITE A LONG TIME transcribing a two hour interview with Davy. I’ve only made it through the first hour, and it’s been open in a tab since DECEMBER 13 waiting for me to finish it… when I have the time… which hasn’t happened yet. It’s already nearly 7.5k words long. So I think I’ve got a pretty good handle on the guy’s particular brand of snark and humor.
So in the same reply where he described the scene, he also said it was a “fair comparison” to put himself in the role of the angel… I mean… he’s yanking chains here.
Later in the article:
Just how much do you enjoy messing with people?
A lot, I enjoy it more than I should actually. I’m starting to feel like perhaps it’s time to be more careful because at some point my sarcasm and teasing may get taken the wrong way and it will create a kerosene pyre.
If there was one word to describe (honestly there are no words) I would say magical.
It truly was amazing and well worth its money.
I won’t lie and say I haven’t watched many boots of Newsies, so I felt like I was ready for it, but I wasn’t. Watching it in HD on a movie screen was a gift. As soon as the opening started, tears starting forming in my eyes and when you looked around so were others. And speaking of the audience, the theater was full, there were people standing. It was so wonderful to see the musical theatre community out and being around so many Newsies fans and in truth, it made the night.
The reactions to the cast and scenes with excitement and crying and seeing the originals was pure joy.
Jeremy FREAKING Jordan. I have no words. He was fantastic and seeing Andrew made me cry (I love Crutchie so much). The Letter from the Refuge, I’m just crying at the thought. And Tommy Bracco deserves so much more credit than he gets. Kara Lindsay is everything and more. Aisha de Haas (I’ve always loved sharing a name with her lol) is the boss.
It was great and can’t be described in words. It made for a great birthday gift. I’ll add more on as I think about it.
This is one of those great movies that you kind of want to unsee, because it’s really disturbing. The theme, that is child abuse, is very real and present in the film, and I think this is great to warn people about pedophilia. I think the director captured in a great way how abuse changes people and how it ruins their lives. This movie makes you very uncomfortable, but it’s supposed to.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt should have won an Oscar for this, honestly. I don’t even have words to describe how awesome he was. Brady Corbet was very good as well. They had to do those super weird scenes, and it must have been very difficult.
I love how it has a little bit of comedy, even though it’s the darkest shit I have ever seen.
The scenes are so beautiful an delicate an uuugh, the colors that match the mood of the film, I just love this so much.
Let’s appreciate the director for doing a movie about something people refuse to talk about. I mean, the film is based on a book, but it mustn’t be easy to make a movie about child abuse, you know?
How awkward it would be to watch it with your parents: A LOT. REALLY. JUST DON’T.
All jokes, goofs, gafs, digging and guffaws aside, I just want to thank everyone who worked on the interactive sketch.
Words cannot describe how much I appreciate the sheer dedication, time and effort that was put into this; and the sketch turned out to be amazing! I applaud everyone who worked tirelessly, for days upon days on it, just to get each an every scene perfect (especially the darkiplier and alien abduction scenes bc those were hella cool). The sketch was truly incredible. I loved every single bit of it.
Not everyone may be into the whole ‘interactive video’ thing or even going on a 'date’ with Mark, but it’s definitely worth appreciating and was definitely SO worth the wait. Thank you, teamiplier and everyone who worked on A Date With Markiplier. I’m so looking forward to more things like these in the future :)
Even after last night do you still believe in Stelena?
By “after last night” I’m assuming you mean the fact that Stefan and Caroline’s wedding is back on? I actually haven’t watched the episode, but I just watched the clip on YouTube where Stefan asks Caroline to marry him again and actually, it’s very sweet. That’s probably the most emotion I’ve felt when watching a St*roline scene since way back in season 5. I actually felt like I believed every word Stefan said, but the problem still remains that he’s human and Caroline’s a vampire. It doesn’t matter how much he wants it to work or how much he loves her and thinks he wants to grow old with her right now, issues will arise over time because they’re two different species coming together.
“So good of you to come.” Those were the words Lourié’s ears caught. He couldn’t quite tell if it was a voice or the sound the wind. But he felt certain that words came from the other presence.[…]
“My children number in the millions.” Said the presence.
Scene from Vampire Hunter D vol.22 : White Devil Mountain. By Hideyuki Kikuchi.
Felt like I should draw how I pictured Duke Gilzen in that black mist shrouding the little boy. The scene was kinda eerie so yeh. It’s pretty much my favourite novel series ever since it features pretty much everything you need: post-apocalyptic sci-fi, vampires, aliens (yeah I know but it’s dope trust me) all your favourite characters dying (lol) and a protagonist that seems like a mary sue when you describe him but is actually a dick. And we still all love him. Also a talking left hand.
Can’t stop thinking about it. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a documentary about the drag scene in New York in the late 80’s.
It covers drag, homophobia, racism, transgender issues, poverty, etc.
The mix of queer identities!
I then looked for other lgbt documents and found there is a massive lack of AFAB focused things :( Thanks sexism
But anyway! I’ve spent time today thinking about queer things and that we definatly need more love between the lgbt community! I understand separate spaces are important sometimes but so are shared spaces.
Sometimes there is so much policing of terms and identities. Seeing something from 30 years ago shows how much language is constantly evolving. Someone 30 years ago might have called themselves a transvestite, whereas now we might call them a trans woman.
I’ve got hate for using the word butch to describe myself as I’m not a lesbian, I’ve got hate for using the word trans. I used the term ‘not 100% straight’ for years as bisexuality is rarely represented and when is it, it’s negative.
I’ve been told i can’t be a true feminist as I’m not a lesbian.
I’ve met lovely trans women and I’ve met a not so nice trans woman. My transgender wife reconises herself as trans woman not woman but that that is a valid identity that deserves respect. I’ve met autistic trans people, I’ve met not autistic trans people. I’ve met women who love being women, I’ve met women who are indifferent to being women.
I’ve met a woman with Turner’s syndrome (single X syndrome) who was proud to be a woman despite being infertile and having to take hrt.
I’ve met feminine lesbians, I’ve met unfeminine lesbians.
I think we should stop policing. Yes there some annoying teenagers calling themselves ridiculous ‘genders’ like agenderstarfliudflux or whaterver but that’s just it, it’s teenagers. They will either grow out of it or find their identity.
Where is the line between non-binary and binary? A person’s identity is they’re own.
For me, is it my eating disorder or the comments from my mother and others that makes me question if i want to transition? Does it matter? I like the terms queer, genderqueer, femme ftm, female bloke, camp, androgyne. I don’t want surgery but testosterone is tempting sometimes.
We should stop the hate between lesbians and trans people, stop the misogyny of gay men, etc.
Years ago, people started to reclaim the v word queer, why are people trying to censor it again?
A character in Sense8 (a trans woman, played by a trans woman) writes a blog and one of the things she writes about is how she thinks that we should get rid of the alphabet of LGBT as just use one term. Maybe she is onto something.
I could go on. Idk exactly what my point was but i just wanted to get some thoughts out! Scary thing is, i bet I’m going to get hate for this spew of thoughts
Can we please talk about this scene?? I mean there has been a lot of powerful scenes in the five seasons of shameless but this, to me, was the most powerful because it was so simple but it said so much! Yeah we’ve heard Mickey tell Ian that he loves him but to me, this scene actually showed and told us how much he loves Ian and how much impact Ian has on his life. Ian is everything to him, he didn’t know what love meant until he met him and this scene showed it all it was so beautifully. They say “actions speak louder than words” well this scene showed us how true that is…
I watched Kotonoha no Niwa, or The Garden of Words, today, and I cannot describe how much I love it. This short film is about a high school boy named Takao who meets this woman at the park on rainy days. The two develop closer as the days go by, and slowly start catching themselves praying for a rainy day. I won’t explain more, as I don’t want to spoil anything for you guys. Despite the amazing storyline, the thing that caught my attention first was the beautiful animation style. I feel like every scene could be a wallpaper for my desktop. Overall, I give this movie a 10/10, please go watch it if you haven’t yet!
