this is a pretty poor effort

Mom, I'm so sorry

So, I don’t know if anyone has noticed this yet, but during the Stay Alive Reprise, when Eliza goes, “Who did this, Alexander, did you know?” It seemed pretty clear that she was getting ready to lay into the poor bastard, but Philip immediately chimes in and tells her he’s sorry, which draws her attention away from his father. My theory here is that after the Reynolds Pamphlet, Eliza and Alex were obviously estranged and it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if they did argue, especially over the children seeing how Pip looked up to Alex. So, what if, him for that one moment of not allowing his mother to berate his father was a last ditch effort to show that they had more important things to worry about like their children?

Unlike Brothers |  The Tomarry I Blame on MistiCon
We started talking about tom/harry at Misti, and I said the only way it would work for me would be if Harry got thrown back in time and they grew up in the orphanage together.  And I’m sure that’s been done to death, but I started another one.  Not sure how far I’ll take it.  

When Aurors and inspectors and Order members arrived they found James and Lily Potter horribly dead, Sirius Black laughing with the hysteria of the mad, and no trace of Voldemort.

That’s canon.  The papers said that.  People raised toasts to that, and to The Boy Who Lived.  The horror was over.  The wizarding world could move on.

What everyone in the know decided to cover up was that the baby was missing too.

“What would you do if you were here?”

Clint’s soft groan shivered into Bucky’s ear. He’d been gone for a month now, somewhere in Europe, somewhere with mountains and bad guys and spotty cell reception, and Bucky had been going slowly mad.

He wouldn’t have said relationship, before Clint had gone. There’d’ve been words like ‘convenient’, like 'buddy’, like the gentle fricative of 'fuck’ stretched out over a bitten lip. Perspective changed a little when you hadn’t slept right in a month.

“Which answer d'you want?” Clint said, and Bucky tilted his head, 'cos this wasn’t how things usually went.

“Which answers can I choose?”

“Phone sex, honest, us,” Clint rattled off like he was counting off on his fingers.

“Us isn’t honest?” There was a little more meaning in that than he’d meant.

“In a different way. That’s what you’re going for?”


Bucky could almost feel the long breath Clint let out against the skin of his neck, and the fraction of an inch between almost and could was hell.

“Well I’d kiss you first,” Clint said, and his tone said a lot about the colour of his cheeks. “Just a little, 'cos I’ve been travelling, and my face is like sandpaper, but enough to remind myself what I’ve been missing. What’s been missing from me.” And hey if those words weren’t a punch in the gut. “Then I’d wrap myself around you for a bit, probably. Shove my face in your neck and fuck the stubble rash. Squeeze you a little too tight, make you kinda uncomfortable, if I’m reading this wrong.”

“You’re not,” Bucky said. Had no idea what Clint would hear in his voice.

“Okay.” Relief. That was relief. “Then I’d haul you into the shower,” Clint continued, “make a fucking poor effort at getting you off, hands or mouth, whichever was easiest, drag you to bed and then pass out on you half way through a shitty hand job.”

“Sounds perfect,” Bucky said, no word of a lie.

“I’d make you breakfast in the morning,” Clint said, “maybe tell you I love you, I dunno, I haven’t figured that bit out yet.”

“Pretty sure I love you too,” Bucky said, and let out a shaky laugh. “Fuck, Barton, the hell was the honest answer?”

“Honestly?” Clint said, his words bending a little around a grin, “I’m outside your front door.”

Tony Stark ADHD Part 1

After seeing this post I decided to do a post about the DSM V diagnostic criteria for ADHD as it applies to Tony Stark. Since Tony is over the age of 17 he needs 5/9 criteria. (Under the age of 17 requires 6/9)

Part 1 will focus on inattentiveness  part 2 (Link Here) will focus on Hyperactivity

1. Often fails to give close attention to details or makes careless mistakes in  schoolwork, work, or during other activities (e.g. overlooks or misses details, work is inaccurate).

This seems as if it doesn’t apply at first glance, Tony generally makes incredibly detailed and accurate products with a few exceptions, but the thing to consider here is that making things isn’t his only job, and he failed to give close attention to detail on the business side of SI during Iron Man 1. 

2.Often has difficulty sustaining attention in tasks or play activities (e.g., has  difficulty remaining focused during lectures, conversations, or lengthy reading).

When Pepper was talking seriously with him Tony was thoroughly distracted, and this seems to be a general trend, he frequently admits to having forgotten conversations with people like Yinsen, or Killian, who he agreed to meet with while distracted. 

3.Often does not seem to listen when spoken to directly (e.g., mind seems elsewhere, even in the absence of any obvious distraction).

Tony does seem to frequently drift from conversations, and he tends to play it off as a joke. It even happens during the senate hearing in Iron Man 2. 

4.Often does not follow through on instructions and fails to finish school work, chores, or duties in the work place (e.g., starts tasks but quickly loses focus and is easily  sidetracked).

Tony is known for doing his own thing, and not listening directly to orders. It’s a constant nuisance to whoever is trying to tell him what to do. This can however lead to some pretty innovative thinking.

5.Often has difficulty organizing tasks and activities (e.g., difficulty managing sequential tasks; difficulty keeping materials and belongings in order; messy, disorganized work; has poor time management; fails to meet deadlines).

I think Pepper and Rhodey would be the first people to tell you that Tony is awful at time management, and his lab is a mess.

6.Often avoids or is reluctant to engage in tasks that require sustained mental effort (e.g. schoolwork or homework; for older adolescents and adults, preparing reports,  completing forms, reviewing lengthy papers).

This one again doesn’t really apply, Tony loves his lengthy projects like JARVIS, but what about paper work for Pepper? He’s not so keen on it. 

7.Often loses things necessary for tasks or activities (e.g., school materials, pencils, books, tools, wallets, keys, paperwork, eyeglasses, mobile telephones).

This one doesn’t really fit, but that seems to be partially due to Tony doing nearly everything electronically. You can’t lose a pen if your pen is a hologram. 

8. Is often easily distracted by extraneous stimuli (e.g., for older adolescents and adults may include unrelated thoughts).

We see him attempting to make an omelette, and being so distracted by how to talk to Pepper about the Palladium poisoning that the omelette comes out… wrong. 

9. Is often forgetful in daily activities (e.g., doing chores, running errands; for older adolescents and adults, returning calls, paying bills, keeping appointments).

Well Tony certainly seems to meet the diagnostic criteria for ADHD and it explains a lot more than I expected it to actually.

Kylo I had a thought that made me want to cry!
So in the “Don’t play this game” video Mark responds to the voice in the game, like always. And at one point when the voice asks “do you understand me?” And Mark says no, etc. And I was thinking. What if Mark was actually talking to DARK right then? Like:
Dark: do you understand me?
Mark: no…
Dark: no one does
Mark: I DO! Sort of!

Like Mark meant he didn’t understand what Dark was saying, but like he does understand Dark himself, at least a little bit. The tone of his voice when he said “sort of” actually supports this, it totally sounds like he’s trying to say “I do understand you a little bit, or at least I’m trying to!” And like holy hell that’s pretty much exactly how 90% of the fandom feels about Dark right now but can you imagine, that’s how MARK feels too? I mean it kind of makes sense, if anyone would understand Dark it would be Mark, like he would definitely try to at least, and he would make an effort to let Dark know that he’s trying

Sorry I’m rambling now but damn that thought made me sad

fuck 👏 me 👏 up 👏 fam 👏

anonymous asked:

Do you think an artist can just bail on promoting a collaboration if it's underperforming? As in, JHO isn't doing as well as they'd hoped, so they're distancing Louis from it? Although is that even an option after being so involved with the roll out? I continue to be so confused about the video promo, promo overall really.

i feel…. like JHO has done pretty well all things considered. i know it didnt stay high up in the charts for long etc but you literally hear it everywhere. it was literally played at the grammys.. i think louis’ team did a piss poor job of promoting the single because they spent the whole time promoting him via stunts and not the music and thats what we’re all annoyed about and what we mean when we say they didnt promote it… but i think steves team put a lot of effort into promoting it for it to get where it is now, which apparently will be/are the same team? idk i was away the day that all came out.. so it’s like they almost worked together on it. promoted the single via steves team while promoting louis’ personal life through his team. 

but you also gotta remember that WE the fandom did SO MUCH for JHO.. we got it to number 1 in all those countries the first weekend it came out just by supporting louis. this excerpt from this post really sticks with me:

The decision to not promote Louis‘ song could very well have been a logical outcome of the team asking themselves the question „Why?“: Why should we promote his song with huge effort when we KNOW his own fans are going to do it passionately, especially if they think  we don’t give a shit? Why not playing that game in order to make them promo it the hardest way they can?“ Why indeed??  

i dont think sony/syco/whatever label’s marketing plan for JHO was to let the fans do all the work and rely on us… what would happen if that didnt work and we didnt like the song? they wouldve had to have had a contingency plan. BUT they know us.. they’ve been working with this fandom for 6 years. they would definitely have factored in us a fandom and the way we support louis and how much we give everything to these boys. they wouldve used that for sure.

so… i dont think it’s under performing as much as we think it is. it’s played so much on tv shows and mainstream radio… it might not be at the top of the charts anymore, but it’s on everyones playlists and it’s used in a lot of different ways.. it’s like it’s been embedded into the pop world now… louis was smart when he said he saw a gap in the radio market and wanted to fill it with an EDM/Pop collab. 

and to be frank… i really dont think louis’ team have his best interest at heart, enough to distance him. if it was a good team, they wouldve promoted his musical talent and abilities more than his personal life so they could appease ALL fans and show the world hes more than just a boyfriend a dad including but not limited to his social media presence and even his instagram handle, they would have opened their mouths and stopped the media from slamming him whenever they had the chance… they would have had his back a lot more than we’ve seen. after the airport incident they would have done what scooter does every single time JB gets in trouble, they wouldve turned him into the victim, which he was, not the villain they made him out to be. 

anyway…. i highly doubt louis would want to bail on his own music. an artist is a passionate person and naturally ambitious who is trying to get the world to hear their music. why would they want to bail on their own work.


“What I’m trying to tell you is…” Julian supplied with a light chuckle as he stepped forward and flicked at the horribly charred dishes lining the table. “As much I appreciate the effort, I don’t need something from home to make Christmas special… I walked away from that life for a reason and I haven’t looked back.” He paused and crossed his arms before finding you with a pair of honest eyes that had a way of pulling you in and making you sink into the depths of his blue irises as if you were drowning in his pretty stare. “We could be rich, poor, living in some godforsaken apartment or traveling the world. You’re anything but traditional and I don’t care if I come home every night to a plate of burnt toast because if you’re there waiting for me, that means I’m still doing something right. You make anything of the traditional sort rather… dull. You’re unpredictable and it excites me.”

“Not that I’m not in love with the sweet talk but…” With a smirk, you crossed your arms and asked, “You’re not just saying all that to make me feel better about burning dinner, right?”

“Well…” He huffed. “This is a complete disaster but… We could always go out.”

*Imagine Surprising Julian with a Traditional English Christmas Dinner*

@harrisonwellstrash: Imagine surprising Julian with a traditional English Christmas dinner after a hard days work (yep, that’s the best I can think of. I’m sorry)

A/N: Thank you for my first Julian request! He’s a pleasure to write for!

fic writers– important things to note for historical accuracy:

trench warfare wasn’t a thing during the seven years war [which is the war gaston and lefou fought in prior to the film’s start]

seriously please research how battles were fought during the late `1700′s– think more revolution less great war

france didn’t give a fuck about the colonies– you were over there, you fought over there. they barely sent any troops to support efforts, preferring to focus on keeping up strength in the mainland and helping austria and all that shit.

zippers weren’t invented yet. trousers were secured with ties and 18th century underwear was something else

poor people don’t get potties. indoor plumbing was for the wealthy. it was pretty rare.

being gay could get you killed. literally. popular methods of handling sodomites included hanging and being burnt alive. however, public stoning and whipping were welcome to precede these death penalties.

no fucking zippers and trenches jfc

it takes about three minutes to properly prepare a revolutionary-era rifle to be fired again. enemy sides took turns– shoot, reload, advance– take a gander at some youtube videos if you’re curious.

it’s likely gaston could have used his blunderbuss in battle– it’d be an awful way to die and he’s cruel enough to do it. however, it was a close-range weapon. hand pistols were also available, as were rifles with bayonets. swords were far easier, as it took those three minutes to reload a rifle.

i know this is pretty late, but whenever I look at how people treated DW before and after trans update, its a pretty big gap. before they were all “DW is the weakest character lololololol” and now theyre all “DW is too strong ewew dead class KoG” like, she was the underdog, she got teased, and now after all her hard work and effort you still hate her? wow. nice. what a great way to motivate the poor magician.

glassdoor tumblr reviews

if you’ve never heard of glassdoor before, it’s basically this place where employees of (usually at least fairly large or notable) corporations can leave reviews of where they work. while glassdoor doesn’t allow companies to edit the reviews they get, there’s also no screening process to verify previous employment, etc. however, some trends in these reviews – as well as how they match up with what we’re seeing on the site – makes me believe they at least have some truth to them and aren’t all faked. here are some interesting insights:
