this is becoming one of my favorites

therealoctaviaspencer: No filter. I spend much of my time now marveling at the beauty in the simplest things. This one of my favorite cinematic moments in #Gifted or any movie really. Oh, The way Marc Webb blocked this scene with @mckennagraceful and #ChrisEvans. I won’t tell you the conversation b/c you need to see the film and after you do, meet me here to discuss. I refer to it as a #Hamilton moment bc I’d just seen and become obsessed with Lin-Manuel Miranda’s genius. I wasn’t scheduled to work this day and as you can see, time was of the essence to get the shot. The crew hustled down the beach, everyone moved equipment etc. just to make sure it happened. And afterwards we all applauded because it was just that beautiful. So, here’s a tip of my hat to the #gifted crew for hustling, Marc for blocking it this way, and to Mckenna and Chris for a transcendent moment. PS this is NOT my photography lol.

Thank you 😘😘 - Anon

The boys walked into the house after playing at the Schuyler sisters house. They looked around the entryway confused. Usually at least one of you would be nearby to greet them from coming home. Then again, they hadn’t come home at the time they said they would. They had come home much earlier.

“Where are they?” Alex asked, walking further into the house to investigate.

“Maybe they went to the store.” John suggested.

“No, both cars are here.” Aaron disproved John’s theory.

That’s when they heard it…

“Fuck, George.” Your moan echoing down the stairs to where the boys stood.

“Oh, they must be in their room.” James smiled, started to walk up the stairs with the others following him.

Hercules was at the back and felt very uneasy. He was the oldest of the group and had a feeling that they were doing something he did not want to see. He hoped that he was wrong, but sadly his hope would soon shrivel up and die.

Another moan could be heard from outside the door. This one had come from both George and you. With seven boys always running around the house, you hadn’t had sex for what had felt like an eternity. You had been so caught up with the moment, that neither of you had heard the boys standing outside your door and busting it open.

“SHIT!” George exclaimed looking at the boys, right before everything took a terrible turn.

Everyone began screaming, Hercules covered his eyes and blushed at the sight of the two of you naked. James had curled up in fetal position on the ground. John tried running out of the room with his eyes closed, but ran into a wall instead. Lafayette and Alex had jumped onto Hercules in fear as they screamed. Aaron just sat there in shock and Thomas was slightly shaking with laughter, but still covered his eyes like the rest.

Meanwhile, you and George covered yourselves up with your bed sheets and looked for something to thrown on that was nearby. Luckily, two of George’s shirts sat on the floor next to the bed. He tossed you one and pulled the other over his head. The commotion in front of you continued, as you both pulled on a nearby pair of pants and stood up to get out of the bed.

“Um, boys…” George started, hoping their screaming would stop.

“WHAT WAS THAT?” Aaron screamed.

“WHY WERE YOU HURTING EACH OTHER LIKE THAT?” James cried, still in fetal position on the ground.

“Why don’t we go down into the living room and talk about what just happened.” You suggested, ushering the boys to move along.

“Dear god, that will forever be burned in my memory.” Herc muttered, walking past you and George to head down the stairs.

“We’ve permanently scarred the kids, haven’t we?” You asked George, still in shock yourself with what had just happened.

“Well, I mean this could be a good opportunity to give them the talk.” George suggested, as you trailed behind the boys down the stairs.

“Are you kidding me? The youngest is 10, George! That is much too young to have the sex talk!” You protested, before entering the living room where the boys sat in shock and disgust.

“Were you two having sex?” Herc asked, the other boys snapping up at his words.

“What’s sex?” James asked, his innocent eyes being filled with curiosity.

“This is going to be good.” Thomas snickered.

“Well son, let me tell you about the birds and the bees.” George started, sitting down in between a few of the boys on the couch.

“George!” You screamed, giving him a warning look.

“But he wants to know!” George exclaimed, fidgeting slightly under your hard glare.

“Wait, what does sex have to do with the birds and the bees? I thought sex was when a man put his penius in-” Alex started before your hand flew over his blabbering mouth.

“I thought that was oral sex! They were doing something different…” John trialed off, causing you and George to look at each other in shock.

“How do you boys know so much?” You asked, slightly worried about where they were hearing such detailed things.

“Dad already gave me the talk, of course I know.” John shrugged, then turned his gaze to Alex. “After that, I gave the same talk to Alex. We also got a lot of our information by asking the older boys at school.”

“I just can’t believe I saw my parents have sex…” Lafayette shuddered, the image was there every time he closed his eyes and he hated it.

“WHAT ARE YOU ALL TALKING ABOUT??” James screamed, wanting more information from the other boys.

“You will learn one day, young one.” Aaron said, patting his head gently.

“I’m the same age as you!” James shrieked, throwing his hands in the air in frustration.

“Shhhhhhh…” Aaron shushed him, pretending he didn’t hear what James had just said.

“Okay, any questions about sex? Or do you think you boys understand enough?” George asked, he also ignored James’s pleas to know what they were talking about.

“I have one!” Laf raised his hand to get yours and George’s attention. “I heard a lot of the high school kids mention it. What’s a pu-”

“NOPE!” You and George yelled at the same time.

“But-” Laf attempted.

“TOO YOUNG!” George shouted, walking quickly out of the room with you quickly behind him.

“You will learn when you’re older!” You called to the boys that still sat in the living room behind you.

“Don’t worry, Herc can tell us!” Thomas exclaimed, turning to see the bulky boy sprinting out of the room.

“Hercules!” Aaron screeched from behind him.

“YOU DON’T NEED TO KNOW!” He yelled, leaving the boys in the room by themselves.

“Ask the Schuyler sisters?” Alex suggested, the boys making sounds of agreement.

“Can someone please explain sex to me?” James asked, hoping at least one of the boys would help him.

“Ugh, fine.” Thomas paused thinking how to start this. “Well, people usually explain this with the birds and the bees…”

Okay b ut, one reason why I absolutely adore Gorillaz is due to the fact that, they have no set genre in stone, as many are aware.

As a person who loves all kinds of music, this is really great for me, cuz there’s basically a song by them for every mood I’m feeling;

Perhaps I’m not in the mood for alt. rock or something and I want something chill and somber, I could literally just go listen to Broken.

And like, if I’m not feeling chill vibes any more and want something that I can shake my booty to, I can listen to DARE.

Then, I might just want some good ol’ rap, I could just listen to one of their newest songs from today; Ascension!

You get the idea.

It is due to this reason alone, amongst many other reasons, that the Gorillaz are easily becoming one of my favorite bands of all time.

okay can we all just accept that alan is never coming back to dm and that bashing post-wilder dm is just pointless. like no one is forcing you to enjoy all of their music. i know that my favorite dm albums are with alan but you know what… i don’t complain about it!! i know alan isn’t coming back and there is nothing any of us can do to change that! dm is happy without him. alan is happy working on his solo stuff. the sound of the band was bound to change! you’re allowed to like what you like but when you make sweeping generalizations about the band becoming worse after alan or that all their music is mediocre now that’s just so… counterproductive? what’s the point? you’re just putting all this unnecessary negativity into the atmosphere. you can critique the music without defaulting to the “oh no alan? then it’s all bad” kind of mindset. i’ve just seen a lot of negative posts lately from tumblr to facebook to other social media and it’s getting on my nerves, honestly. like i said, you’re allowed to like and dislike whatever you want but all you’re doing when making those kinds of posts is just riling people (like me!) up and not even giving any constructive criticism. what’s! the! point!

I dont know what happened with springlechuu but a style cant be "stolen". It can be emulated but stolen? Nah. Plus emulating your favorite artists is a great way to learn how to draw, no one starts out with a single style, its learned through trying different things.

I absolutely agree with you! Trust me, I used to imitate certain artists I admired when I made my first blog! I learned many different techniques to use, and slowly I was finding my very own style!!! So it’s a bad thing to do that kind of stuff, it’s helping those learn different ways to become creative!!!

I’m sure a ton of people were doing the same thing, and it’s not a problem at All!

anonymous asked:

I really liked Divide, but I can't forget the feeling that Ed isn't the same anymore. I mean, his songs are still good, but you can see that they're so much more commercial now and that makes me kinda sad. I had the same feeling when Multiply came out because of Sing and Don't. That's why Plus will always be my favorite one. What do you think?

What I think is a lot of people seem to be upset that Ed is more successful now than he used to be, and that just doesn’t make any sense to me. Did you become a fan because you thought Ed was a talented musician or because you liked being able to say his name without everyone immediately recognizing it? Now that he’s more popular than before, that doesn’t mean that the quality of his music has decreased. If anything, the music has improved through his growth of experience and his increased opportunities to learn from and collaborate with other extremely talented artists. All he has done is gotten better as a songwriter and as a performer and now you’re sad because his music is doing well with a wider audience? 

I don’t get it. 

If something has commercial value, then that means that it can be sold because people will want it. So what you’ve literally said here is that you like the album and you can tell that more people will want to buy these songs than his previous songs. I don’t see a down side to that. And you know, it’s not just you who is saying this. Ed’s also getting ripped by other fans and by the media over his songs being “too commercial” and it’s honestly one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard. How is it even possible for music to be too commercial? It’s worth too much on the market? Too many people will want to buy it? It’s spending too much time at the top of the charts? …And this is supposed to be some kind of a bad thing? The idea that Ed’s songs could lose their intrinsic musical value in your eyes simply because they appeal to more people than before is just baffling to me. 

If you didn’t like the album, that would be okay. Everyone’s got their own personal taste, and I have zero problem with that. If you said you didn’t like the lyrics, or the beat, or the melody, or some actual musical thing about the songs, then I’d say fair enough. You’re not required to like something just because I like it. But the fact that you said you do really like it, and yet it makes you sad because it’s marketable…? And so many other people have said this too, and I’m just over here wondering if everyone’s repeating the same essentially meaningless words to each other because they’ve got nothing original to add to the conversation, or if they think “commercial” means something else, or if I’m suddenly just living in some bizarro-world where it’s not good to make a living from creating things and then selling those things to the public. 


This is one of my favorite details about YOI.

The reason Victor gives Yuuri for why he left Russia to become his coach is “because of the music.” He says Yuuri creates this with his body.

Poetic, right? Maybe more than you think.

Let’s rewind to the scene where Yuuri skates Victor’s “Stay Close to Me” routine. The one that inspired Victor to come to Japan.

What’s interesting to me is that Yuuri is skating without music. We hear it in the episode because it’s playing in the arena where Victor is, and the scenes are overlaid.

But where Yuuri is, it’s silent. The boy hears Victor’s song in his head.

Yuko recognizes the routine because she’s seen it before. Not because Yuuri put on music. She recognizes the first pose.

Which means…

Yuuri’s viral video is silent. He literally makes Victor hear the music with his body.

If Jane Austen wrote Star Trek:

Spock, the first officer whose advice was always effectual, possessed a strength of understanding, and coolness of judgement, which qualified him to be the counselor of the ship’s captain, and enabled him frequently to counteract, to the advantage of them all, that eagerness of mind in Captain Kirk which must generally have lead to imprudence. Spock had an excellent heart, positioned somewhere near his kidneys; his feelings were strong, but he knew how to govern them: it was a knowledge which his captain had yet to learn, and which one of his fellow crew members had resolved never to learn.

Dr. Leonard McCoy’s abilities were, in many respects, equal to Spock’s. He was sensible and clever; but eager in every thing; his sorrows, his joys, could have no moderation. He was generous, amiably cynical, interesting: he was everything but logical.

I promise you this, when you find your person you’ll know. Because you find them in every little thing you do and you picture doing everything with that one person. Every song becomes about them, every movie or tv show ends up being relatable to them. You start to feel more than just butterflies in your stomach but you get a feeling in your heart that makes everything feel as if it’ll all be okay. They’re voice is your new favorite sound and they’re eyes are your new favorite color. You can’t get enough of them in a day and you can’t picture anyone else by your side. Whether it’s miles or minutes apart you just know deep down that they are your person. And if you ever find that person, you’d be damned if you ever let them go.
—  Some personal shit

Yuuri slowly becoming one of Yakov’s favorite skaters in Russia is my new secret headcanon. 

-Yuuri rarely complains about skating, is always polite, and is one of the hardest working people in the rink.
-Yuuri always brings out a side of Victor that Yakov hasn’t seen in years. 
-Yuuri helps motivate Yurio and makes him work harder
- All the Russian skaters love him
-Yuuri is sometimes overly emotional in a way that Yakov isn’t used to (and he wants to protect it.)
- Yakov and Yurio correcting Yuuri’s Russian while at the same time being incredibly proud that his language skills are increasing. 
- Yakov always giving Yuuri recommendations about places to go. “No no no Vitya shouldn’t take you to that restaurant. Here, I know a guy who makes the best borscht in St. Petersburg.” 

Witchy tip ~ The “me” candle

If you get tired easily when doing your workings, consecrate a candle to yourself and light it every time you are doing something witchy/pagany. The goal here is to use the candle as a power bank, raising its energy so your own doesn’t run low. 

Differently than working candles, commonly used to improve your magick’s potency, the “me” candle is programmed to improve *your* energy while you are working on your magick. It can become a precious piece for practitioners that, as me, have more often than not low spoons days. 

Extra tip: dress your candle with essential oils that boost your energy. Bergamot and lemongrass are my favorite ones for this use!

The different looks of Judith Grimes

The “Guys, I really don’t think it’s a good idea” look

The “That’s my favorite game” look

The “Hey, brother” look

The “I’m totally agree with you” look

The “Mum you’re so beautiful” look

The “My gosh, can you just stop talking to me” look

The “Who do you think you are” look


“Well I’m the real star of the show so I can look right into the camera if I want! Do you have a problem with that ?”

This little one is becoming my new favorite actress! She deserves an Emmy 🙈!

Kaeri’s Otayuri Fic Rec List  #1

There are so many great Otayuri fics on ao3 and I’ve… pretty much read them all haha. I wish I could include every single one I’ve read on this rec list, but then this list would probably go on forever so here are just some of my absolute favorites! Please go check them out if you have time! I promise you will love them. <3

From Almaty, With Love (ongoing, mature) by @boxwineconfession

I kid you not: as the Otayuri fanbase keeps growing, this fic will become known as THE LEGENDARY MULT-CHAPTERED SLOW BURN OTAYURI FANFIC. Because that’s exactly what it is. The characterization in this fic is unbelievably on point and Otabek and Yuri’s interactions are just so very… them. I greatly enjoy watching both of them suffer from the UST (although they are suffering no longer… heh).

run in my veins (50 sentences format, sfw) by @rovmustang

Absolutely exquisite writing. Some sentences will make you laugh, some will make you cry and all of them will make you feel like you’ve had the breath knocked out of you. I literally just stared up at my ceiling for ten minutes after reading this just contemplating the beauty of Otabek and Yuri’s relationship.

Feet first (Don’t Fall) (oneshot, mature, underage) by @gunboots

This was the first Otayuri fanfic I ever read and it just… blew me away? Otabek’s voice is so beautiful, clear and distinct, and you get the pleasure of watching both him and his relationship with Yuri grow over the years. There is underage sexual contact when Yuri is 17 (which, I would like to point out for the antis, is older than 16, Russia and Kazakhstan’s age of consent).

soldier boy, tripping over himself to win my praise (ongoing, sfw) by @thissupposedcrime 

This is a very unique fic with a semi non-linear format and a rich, engaging story! It explores Otabek and Yuri’s relationship over the span of ten years, and it’s really just… riveting.

Golden Days (oneshot, sfw) by @alcoholicrevo

The CUTEST fic you will ever have the pleasure of reading. I almost suffocated myself from muffling my screams with my pillow when the fluff got too real.

melt me down (oneshot, sfw) by @ohhotlamb

This fic is so gentle, romantic and enchanting that my heart just swelled with overwhelming love and affection for these two. Otabek is absolutely precious, and Yuri is smitten (the feeling is mutual!).

Endurance and Peach Tea (oneshot, sfw) by chapstickaddict (I don’t know their tumblr sadly)

This fic was such an emotional rollercoaster for me and I couldn’t help but drown in the wonderful feels. The ending killed me in the best way.

the naming of cats (oneshot, sfw) by @csoru

This fic cut me so deeply and made my heart bleed… But the ending plastered a nice band aid over the wound so it’s all good! All jokes aside, please go and read this fic; it’s so hauntingly beautiful that you’ll be aching from the feels for days.

on the verge of running into your arms (oneshot, sfw) by @clears-jellyfish-dress

Oh god, this fic highlights how utterly healthy, loving and caring Otabek and Yuri’s relationship is. Otabek is literally the bestest, BESTEST (I know that’s not a word but it gets my point across) friend in the world, and Yuri clearly agrees.

holding out for a hero (oneshot, sfw) by @mother-iwa-chan

I literally could not stop smiling while I read this fic. SO FREAKING SWEET AND ADORABLE AND JUST. AHHHHHH. SOMEONE HOLD ME PLEASE.

write my name on your skin (twoshot, sfw) by @altisetsky (one of my favorite blogs on tumblr btw 8D)

A refreshing spin on the soulmate AU trope! Ah, Yuri’s pining is just so freaking adorable to read…

down for the count, and I’m drownin’ in ‘em (oneshot, sfw) by @unhookingstarswithoutpermission

This fic killed me? Yeah, I just cannot get over how tender, loving and supportive Otabek and Yuri are to one another!

If the sparks didn’t glow (we would know) (oneshot, sfw) by @slumbrslumbrs

This fic made me smile so hard my face hurt. Everyone is so protective of Yuri, but Otabek is the best and purest bro. :)

Please go and kudos all of these lovely fics! Also, please, PLEASE comment if you can; all these writers deserve so much love, support and praise for their hard work.

A huge thank you to all the writers on this list (and all fanfic writers in general) for sharing their beautiful creations with us! I love and appreciate you guys so much <3

Rapunzel the Thief

During my most recent fever daydream I started thinking about alternative universes in “Tangled”. One of my favorites was one where Rapunzel cuts of her own hair in order to escape Gothel and the tower. OBS: Rapunzel just knows that “mother” has lied to her, but she has no idea that she is royalty. 

After wandering the forest all alone and depressed she bands up with ((fellow orphan)) Flynn Rider and becomes a well known thief. Later, during a break-in into the castle Rapunzel realizes who her real parents could be, but before she can meet the king or queen she is captured by the guards and is sentenced to death.

The rest is up to you. But a happy ending is obligatory. :P
