Sorry I’ve been MIA everyone, back to school has been killer. I’ll probably be pretty quiet on here for a while, but here’s a preview for a Teen Titans print I’ll be selling for a charity event! More details coming soon, can’t wait to show it to you guys!
I myself have fallen down the “heathers videos on YouTube” rabbit hole sooo many times. But if for some reason you haven’t (or you’re new to the musical) these are my top 13 favorite videos on the tube that feature heathers. Some of these are OBC and some are other productions. I’ve literally probably watched all these videos like 5 times in their entirety. Enjoy.
“This episode is called ‘Alex,’ and there’s a guy who comes back from Alex and Kara’s past,” Chyler Leigh shared with TVLine in between scenes. “In the [Supergirl] pilot, you saw a young Kara miraculously save a girl from car. Well, this one guy saw her do it, and knowing that she had these powers, he figured out that Kara is Supergirl.”
Seeing an opportunity, this man puts in motion a “big, elaborate setup” that targets Alex and compels Supergirl to spring a dangerous individual from prison. When Alex goes missing during this ordeal, it will take the combined efforts of two of the people closest to her to hopefully save the day.
“Maggie and Kara have to team up to try to figure out what’s happened to me, and that sets up a lot of interesting conversations between the two ladies,” Leigh previews. “It’s almost like a peeing contest, you know what I mean? Like, ‘Who can do this better? Who knows Alex better?’ And it comes to a head at one point.”
I am a senior at Wesleyan, and my girlfriend Aileen has surprised me with tickets to see “Tick, Tick … Boom!” by Larson Off Broadway. We drive down from school to the Jane Street Theater, south of West 14th Street. The terrorist attacks of two months earlier are still fresh in everyone’s minds, and it is our first time so far downtown since. The real world is terrifying, and we are theater majors about to graduate: What on earth do we have to offer it? The houselights go down, and Raúl Esparza comes onstage as Jonathan, and nothing is ever the same again.
“Tick, Tick … Boom!” is an autobiographical musical that Jonathan Larson wrote concurrently with “Rent”; the playwright David Auburn later adapted into a three-person show. The story is simple: It is 1990, and Jonathan is grappling with turning 30. He is trying to make a living writing musical theater, but he works at a diner to pay the bills. His best friend has given up acting for a job in market research; his girlfriend, a dancer, wants to leave New York. He hears time ticking away, he sees friends and lovers abandoning their dreams, but he keeps going.
Just as “Rent” grabbed 17-year-old me and announced, “This is what you should be doing,” “Tick, Tick … Boom!” grabbed the 21-year old me and refused to let go. It was more than a portrait of the artist as a young man; it was a sneak preview of what my 20s would be: readings and workshops going nowhere, jobs allowing only flexible hours, relationships ending because the writing comes first and must always come first, watching talented friends adjust their dreams and find happiness in other careers with more stability. Every young artist deals with these realities, and Jonathan gave them specificity and vitality and truth. He kept going, and, in doing so, galvanized a generation of songwriters to follow his lead, myself included.
Hotaru’s visit to Kai was coming to an end, yet again. It was his last night, and the hours of the late evening were being spent enjoying a banquet held in his honour. You were rushing to and from the kitchen, trying to replace the empty dishes as quickly as you could…but if you were honest with yourself, you weren’t working with fastidiousness because it was your job.
You were trying to distract yourself from the heaviness in your heart. That familiar aching heaviness had settled itself in your heart once more, and you were doing your best to not pay much mind to it.
As you weaved through the retainers in the hall, you were hotly aware of a pair of eyes following you…tracing your movements as closely as if one were threading a needle. The more conscious you were of being watched, the hotter you felt your cheeks growing and when they finally felt as if they would catch fire, you made the mistake of looking up.
There it was. That intense, steady gaze.
Hotaru didn’t look away. Seconds…maybe minutes even…were spent as the two of you continued to look at one another, and it wasn’t until there was a cough to your right, that the spell finally broke.
You turned to look at Saizo, who was regarding you flatly. ‘I’ll take this, it’s going to go cold.’ Saizo swiftly took the steaming dish out of your hands, throwing a glance in Hotaru’s direction as he did. His eyes gave a hint of faint amusement as he settled his gaze on you once again. ’Relax….enjoy the rest of the night, hm?’
He was gone the second he had stopped speaking, but before you could blink, that very spot was taken by somebody else. A hand was extended towards you, and a low voice spoke, ‘Take it.’
With the ‘medication’ you had been given - the one that prevented you from succumbing to every word he spoke - there was no need for Hotaru to hesitate with his words. He was free to say what he wished around you, and you were free to act on it or not.
…And for this, you chose to act. You took his hand without hesitation and followed him out of the hall, the liveliness of the retainers giving way to the quiet of the night air.
‘Why do you look so sad?’ Hotaru fixed his eyes on you, his fingers tightening around your hand.
‘Because…. you’re leaving tomorrow.’
‘I’ll be back soon.’
‘I know…. but,’ your throat was tightening. ‘I wish..I wish you were here with me all the time.’
Hotaru’s eyes softened, the gentle moonlight catching the affection in them. He drew you into an embrace, the warmth of his touch coaxing you to melt into him.
You breathed out the tension in your body, closing your eyes as your cheek settled against his chest, your ear picking up the steady beat of his heart. It was the most comforting thing in the world - just standing there, nestled in his arms while you both bathed in the moonlight.
As your arms tightened around his back, you felt Hotaru shift a little, until his mouth was level with your ear, his breath warm against your skin ‘….Can I leave my mark?’
He was holding you so tightly now, that you couldn’t turn to look at him. His voice however… had deepened… and there was an edge to it that you couldn’t quite place…an edge that was causing something to stir inside you…
‘Where…?’ You whispered, suddenly so very, very aware of the stillness of the night. So very, very aware of how searingly hot his body now was.
‘….Inside you. I want to leave my mark inside you.’
A/N - Just to be clear, the last line doesnot mean he’s intending for her to get pregnant. He simply means to come inside her (I’m not sure what was used to prevent pregnancies back then, if anything, but for the sake of convenience, I’m just going to let it go) If you want to be tagged for the full smut, let me know~
Anonymous said: The recent fic is so cute btw! can you do one w/ cheerleader y/n +jeff everyone knows about them. A cheerleader is still making subtle moves despite y/n politely confronting her and jeff politely brushing her off. Jessica + Sheri are y/n’s support when it gets toxic in practice/games. Justin & Zach is also friends with y/n bc of jess and knows the situation. Once the jocks are together and some cheerleaders approach and the girl is at it again. Justin helps by passively trying to make her stop.
Author’s Note: Can you tell I was in a foul mood when writing this? I skipped passed polite and went straight for the jugular. Sort of o.O I’m so sorry, anon. I really shouldn’t let my moods get the best of me.
JEFF X READER
“Alright, girls, that’s it for today. Great job!” Sheri applauds you and the other cheerleaders on a job well done.
Everyone’s tired and sore, but the workout over learning a new routine feels good in a way that really shouldn’t and leaves everyone smiling. You and Jessica bump shoulders as you sidle up to one another, linking arms and skipping over to Sheri.
“Hey, Sheri-berri, we still on for tonight?” You ask.
“I don’t know, Y/N, are we?” She smirks. “You’re the one who always cancels when Jeff shows up.”
Fun facts we know:

I totally hate this, it looked so much better inside my head, my inspiration sucks—i’m super tired right now& i can’t speak proper english today, but i really wanted to take this idea off my head AAAAND give this to @yorozuya-ken-chan as her birthday gift 😭 ♡ I LOVE YOU ANITA, this is so crappy, i’m so sorry -sobs- i promise i’ll write you something 2369726 better next time, WAIT FOR ME🙏 (the only good thing about this is the ending, huehue, jon&ygritte hints)
i wanted to make this a smut but i really feel like the words aren’t coming to my head today, so this is just… a bit lime? not even a lime 😂 shame on me.. anyway, take this more like a lazy headcanon instead of a well-written fic *sobs* i’ll bring good smut soon.. I promise, ANITA DESERVES BETTER ✨
“Y-Yes?” he stammers.
“If you want me to sleep with you in your room, just say it.”
As Neve Simon decorates her new house (see post), she will be acquiring new pieces here and there (from me… they all come from me ;). So I thought I’d share them with you guys!
First on the list is a wall shelf for normal, medium and tall walls. Didn’t have time to do nice previews, but you get the idea. It comes in a few subtle shades plus a wood texture and fits flush with the wall. You have to build your walls like this, though…
I hope you enjoy it, and look for more random stuff to pop up here and there.
Thank you for the CC that I used in my previews, creators!
Electron soars on inaugural test flight, paving way for commercial operations.
Rocket Lab broke through the smallsat launch industry Thursday (May 25) with the first launch of its Electron rocket. Dubbed “It’s a Test” by the U.S.-based company, Electron carried a sensor package in lieu of satellites for this mission, providing engineers with over 25,000 channels of data.
Nine Rutherford engines – made in-house by Rocket Lab – powered the 56-foot rocket off its seaside launch complex on New Zealand’s Mahia peninsula. Launch Complex-1 is the country’s first orbital launch facility. Liftoff occurred at 4:20 UTC, or 12:20am EDT May 25.
Two and a half minutes after liftoff the rocket’s first stage fell away and a single Rutherford engine on the upper stage ignited. The vehicle’s payload fairing jettisoned as the second stage continued its powered climb to orbit.
Although the vehicle did reach space – defined as 62 miles above the Earth’s surface – Rocket Lab indicated after the flight that Electron did not achieve orbital velocity. The company did not go into detail on what the potential issues with the flight were that caused its sensor package to not achieve orbit.

Electron is one of only a handful of rocket’s designed entirely in the 21st century. As such, it features a plethora of unique technologies that make it stand out against other vehicles in the commercial launch market. Each Rutherford engine is 3D printed and is fed by all-electric pumps, earning the nickname “the battery-powered rocket”. The use of composite materials for the entire rocket’s body has never been done before and gives Electron a sleek black appearance.
Electron is the first rocket in a burgeoning class of small launchers to take flight that will cater to the small satellite market. Vector Space Systems recently completed a subscale, single-engine test launch of their Vector-R vehicle, however, full-scale test flights still need to occur.
Rocket Labs hopes to fly two more test flights in the coming months before Electron is declared operational by the end of 2017.
I can finally, fiiiinaaalllly announce that I am drawing next year’s Rick and Morty comic mini series Pocket Like You Stole It, coming July 2017 from @onipress. Based on the mega popular (and for me anyway megahard) mobile game Pocket Mortys, the series is written by the brilliant Tini Howard and coloured by the incredible Katy Farina. You can find out more about the series, including an interview with all three of us over at Entertainment Weekly. You’ll find an extended preview of the series in next May’s Rick and Morty Free Comic Book Day 2017 edition as part of the yearly Free Comic Book Day event, for more about that check out the Hollywood Reporter’s rundown on the FCBD 2017 titles.
Above is my cover art for issue 1 as well as some sweet progress shots.
Guys, I’m so fucking excited about this book, I can’t even begin to tell ya.
