things ct loves

More often than not I’ll end up asking myself what went wrong, where I messed up, what life could be like now. But then sometimes, when I’m least expecting it, I’ll respond to those questions in a random thought of clarity: nothing went wrong, I didn’t mess up but let myself realize I wasn’t ready, there’s no way of knowing what life could be like right now so don’t worry about it. The answers never stick and I’m never able to call it a turning point because the next day I’ll see you again and be reminded of the fact that even though I broke up with you I’m here loving you.

anonymous asked:

tup got gum stuck in his hair, what happens?




             “Nooo sleepin’ shush.”


             “What?!” Fives jerked upright in his bunk, narrowly missing cracking his head on the one above him and glaring daggers at whoever dared interrupted his sleep. Then he blinked, and frowned. “Tup? What’s wrong?”

             Tup was scowling, his long, dark hair hanging loose around his face and shoulders. “Some fucker put gum on my pillow.”

             Five blinked, the words taking a moment to penetrate his still sleep fogged brain. “Fucking what now?”

             “Someone. Put. Gum. On. My. Pillow,” Tup said, slowly, irritation seeping into his words, “And I can’t get it off.”

             Fives blinked again, and then his scowl grew darker. “Bantha-fucking―, turn around and let me see.”

             Flicking on the small light attached to the wall at the head of his bunk, Fives watched as Tup turned and sat down, the light illuminating at large wade of pink-white goo on the back of his head, tangled in his dark locks.

             “Batha-fucker,” Fives repeated, “Vod, I think we’re gonna have to cut that out.”

             Tup sighed. “I was afraid you’d say that.” He shuffled in one of his pouches for a moment, and then handed Fives a small vibro-blade. “Here. Try and do a decent job, yeah?”

             Fives stared at the knife dumbly for a moment. “Uh… now?”

             “Well I can’t sleep like this, can I?”

             He had a fair point. Placing the knife down on the bed, Fives scrubbed the remaining sleep from his eyes, and picked it up again. “Okay. Here goes nothing.”

             He ended up doing a half decent job of it too. The gum was low enough down that by the time Fives was finished, Tup’s hair sat just below his shoulders, still long enough to be pulled up and away from his face when he had to where his helmet.

             Tup ran his hands over his head, and then nodded, satisfied. “Thanks, Fives.”

             Fives yawned, and smiled. “No prob, vod’ika. Can I go back to sleep now?”


             “Kay.” Fives reached out, catching Tup around the waist and pulling him close, like a stuffed toy. Tup, long since used to this kind of behaviour and not minding it in the least, went without complaint, curling up against Fives’ chest with a soft sigh, and Fives reached up, and turned out the light.

             And if, the following morning, a certain trooper with a fondness for chewing gum found himself suddenly bald and with rather rude things written across his face, well, Tup and Fives had no idea.


Here you go, some Johnny Weir for your evening. :D

I’ve found one of the best feelings lately to be at the end of the night, when your eyes are scratchy and all you want is sleep because you were so wrapped up in the game and couldn’t give up, laughing as the people around you got more and more funny as they seemingly got more and more drunk, drunk on no sleep, on caffeine, on humor, on each other, on life, and for once you go to bed with sore eyes but a smile on your face as the internal storm cleared for a while, a cease-fire in a seemingly never ending war.

Hawkeye - electroerica
Fullmetal Alchemist

I cannot begin to describe how long I have wanted to shoot Hawkeye’s tattoo and burns. Just…. Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!! I have NEVER seen anyone do this part, and it’s such a vital aspect of her character.


Neil Gaiman on Koumpounophobia.

Which you now have.

Happy Halloween! I’ll be off replacing all my buttons with zippers.


It’s time for ANIMANIACS!

Abra, Victor, and friend as Yakko, Wakko, and Dot

A&G Ohio 2012

Ah, Animaniacs. What a great show - hilarious, intelligent, and full of life lessons. (“Never ask what hot dogs are made of.”) There was nothing so difficult in life which couldn’t be overcome with your siblings and a well-timed anvil. It was pure fun. My family wore the videotapes to pieces and gleefully memorized all the songs (I call still sing The Presidents start to finish.)

Finding the Warner Brothers (AND the Warner Sister!) at A&G made my day!

And then we all had a singalong (Baton Rouge Louisiana, Indianapolis Indiana, and Columbus is the capitol of O-HI-O!)


“I think we ought to live happily ever after,“ [said Howl] and she thought he meant it. Sophie knew that living happily ever after with Howl would be a good deal more hair-raising than any storybook made it sound, though she was determined to try.

- Howl’s Moving Castle

Kayla as Sophie
Joshua as Howl

Incredibly adorable pair. This story is one of my greatest weaknesses, and finding such excellent costumes sends me into giddy turns. ^_^ They even had a Calcifer and Heen!

Midoricon 2012

GUESS WHAT MOVIE Netflix is streaming now?

Treasue Planet. One of my very favorites.

It’s great fun seeing how they translated this sea-faring tale into science fiction. The ships take my breath away every time. There’s flying, daredevil stunts, an epic quest, and PIRATES! Cyborg space pirates! Really, how can you beat that? (Silver’s cyborg animation is one of my favorite parts of the whole move.)

Also, it’s a nice break from Disney’s usual string of royalty-obsessed flicks. No castles, no knights on white horses, and the main female lead, Captain Amelia, is no princess. (Unless it’s the princess of British snark and style. - “To muse and blabber about a treasure map in front of this particular crew, demonstrates a level of ineptitude that borders on the imbecilic! And I mean that in a very caring way.”)

Just a really fun adventure!

And for full disclosure - it helps that Johnny Rzeznik, lead singer of Goo Goo Dolls and my high-school musical crush, sings the movie’s main anthem. “I’m Still Here” still makes me tear up!

PS - Just realized I have NEVER seen cosplay from his movie. Someone should fix that…


Oh help. Help, help, help, I REALLY want to make this. I swear, I did NOT want an iPod touch UNTIL NOW.

I adore MYST.


Level Up - Pacific Rim Fanvid

Oh my goodness… guys, my heart stopped. You do not understand my adoration of Vienna Teng, and then it’s combined with PACIFIC RIM.

Yup, today’s gonna be a good day. *plays three more times*
