this is my new favorite interview


How did you two meet?
Jessica Chastain: When Tree of Life went to Cannes, all the interviewers were asking me about my favorite actors and actresses because I was new to the industry, and they wanted to get to know me. I was always gushing about this little, unknown actress Isabelle Huppert. (Laughs). Everyone kept saying, “She’s here.” And so they were trying to get an introduction. We had dinner in Paris. And when I said to her: “Oh, I love you. You’re my favorite actress,” she goes, “I know.” (Laughs.) Because that’s how much I was talking about it.

“After interviewing my mother and father for A Seat At The Table, it feels like full circle to have chosen my sister to interview me for Interview Magazine. It is one of my favorite to date”

Solange talks growing up in Houston and ‘A Seat At at The Table’ with her sister in a her new cover story with Interview Magazine. On newsstands January 17th!


Tom Holland Imagine: Comic Con

Summary: You and Tom meet at Comic Con while you’re both promoting your new movies

A/N: I saw The Lost City of Z today and almost died because it was so good. It’s literally my favorite book of all time and when I found out Tom was going to play Jack is almost cried.

Warnings: none


Tom and the rest of the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast were in the middle of an interview when she first caught his eye. She was dressed in a blue floral dress when he saw her. Tom tried to keep his focus on answering the questions but his attention kept diverting to her smile. Her smile was the most enchanting smile he had ever seen and she had the most kind eyes of anyone he had ever met.

She was crouched next to a little girl and appeared to be singing. Although Tom couldn’t hear her, he knew she had to have the voice of an angel.

“So, Tom, got your eye on anyone?”

Tom snapped his head back over to the interviewer who was smiling at him.

Tom stayed quiet for a moment as he looked at Zendaya for help who simply giggled at the boy in distress.

“Um, I-uh… I don’t know. There’s one girl who I recently saw and thought was beautiful. But I haven’t had the chance to introduce myself to her yet…”

Tom could feel his cheeks heating up as the rest of the cast ooo'ed at his response.

Tom looked up to Harrison who was smirking at him.

Tom turned his gaze back to look for her, but she was gone. Tom felt like he was going to have a panic attack if he didn’t find her soon.

Luckily for him, the interview ended and he had 1 hour before their panel started. 1 hour to find the mystery girl.

Tom frantically looked around the mountains of people for the dark haired girl in the light blue floral dress. Tom prayed to whatever god was up there that he would find her and find her soon.

Tom was abducted from his prayers by a familiar voice calling his name.

He turned his head to see friendly blue eyes looking back him.

“Hey, kid. It’s been a while.” Sebastian said as he smiled sweetly at Tom.

Although they joked about having a rivalry, they were actually quite fond of each other.

“Oh, hey Seb. Sorry, I just saw this girl earlier and I’m trying to find her.”

“Oh? What’d she look like?”

“Ummm… dark hair, kind eyes, beautiful smile, she was wearing a light blue dress with yellow, black and white flowers on it.”

“I think I know who you’re talking about. Her name’s Y/N. She’s the voice of the new Disney princess. She’s probably in the break room, honestly. Or maybe try and find her booth?”

Tom nodded and took off towards the break room.

“Okay, bye, I guess…” Sebastian mumbled as he watched the lovesick boy run away from him.

Tom could hear people yelling his name for pictures, but he ignored all of them. He felt horrible for neglecting his fans, but he had to find her.

Tom finally reached the break room and saw the same beautiful smile from before as she read from a book of fairytales.

Everything felt like slow motion for Tom as he approached where she was sitting.

Tom had normally been good at talking to girls, but as soon as her e/c eyes met his, he felt hopeless.

His throat ran dry and he could hear his heart pounding in his chest while his stomach did cartwheels inside of him. He felt like he was no longer in reality, but placed in a fictional world of romance like in the movies his mom always watches.

Tom suddenly become aware of how much time had passed of him staring when he noticed her smile beginning to drop.

“Hi? Can I help you with something?”

And that was it. Hearing her voice. Her voice was as smooth as velvet and as beautiful as a sunset over an ocean.

Tom swallowed the lump in his voice and counted to three before blurting out a hello.

The beautiful smile returned to her face as she greeted him once again.

Tom’s cheeks heated up again.

“I’m Tom. I uh, I saw you earlier and I-I just, um-”

“He thinks you’re really pretty!”

Tom whipped around to see Sebastian standing at the door smirking, obviously enjoying the torture that the poor boy was in.

“Oh… is that true?”

Tom turned back to look at Y/N with wide eyes. He slowly nodded and felt his cheeks grow warmer if that was even possible.

Y/N smiled up at him before grabbing a notepad from the tables and a pen.

“Well, if that’s the case, maybe when you learn how to speak properly, you can give me a call.”

Y/N handed Tom the piece of paper that contained her phone number.

Tom smile brightly at Y/N before he heard them calling for the Spider-Man Cast to head to their panel.

“Maybe after this is over, I can take you to dinner? Would that be okay?”

“That sounds perfect.”

anonymous asked:

I really loved your I Love You, Bambette! Series, and I just wanna know if you have any tips for new writers. :000 I LOVW YOUR ARTT

Thank you! I’m so glad you read “I Love You, Bambette!”; it’s my proudest accomplishment. Looking back at it, even I’m impressed!

Writing Tips

I’m not an expert on writing by any means, but here are some things I learned from making “I Love You, Bambette!”:

  1. Starting is the hardest part
    A blank page is any artist’s worst enemy. I had to force myself to put something on paper, no matter how stupid or messy it sounds. Everyone’s first draft is garbage, but that means it’ll only get better, never worse. 
  2. Build off a few essential scenes
    Before writing the final arc, I had a list of “must-have” scenes. Think huge, climactic moments. One such scene was Oda floating in a sea of stars. This guided the course of my story and kept me inspired. 
  3. Every story has a beginning, middle, and end
    Seems obvious, but the key point is clarity. There should be clear points where the story began, the story escalated, and the story got resolved. Look into the three-act structure for details.
  4. Rewrite, rewrite, rewrite
    I rewrote the final arc about eight times. With each draft, I waited a few days, then a better story would come up. Take the plunge: ditch the old story and work on the better one. It’s tedious and frustrating, but the end result pays off.
  5. Use dialogue with purpose
    Dialogue is a story device, not a way to dump information. People don’t always say what they feel. They do stupid things, tell lies and wear masks. Sometimes even they don’t know what they’re thinking. Try to favor action over words, but realize that even talking can be an action.
  6. Write from the heart
    More than anything, the final arc of “I Love You, Bambette!” is a confession. It comes from a personal place, which means it’s a story that only I can tell. Anyone with a brain can write a good story, but until you put your heart on the line, you can never write a great story.

If you want more concrete story tips, there are a lot of resources online. Read essays and watch interviews from your favorite creators (Miyazaki’s essays are great). The “Once upon a time…” game is a good way to exercise story structure.

My favorite Skarsgard

Hi! Can you do an imagine where Bill and the reader have a 4 year old daughter and she joins seb in an interview? Thank you so much!!!

Imagine you and Bill star in a new movie with Sebastian and your daughter crashes his interview

Interviewer: “So we understand that, you and Y/N star in this movie as husband and wife. How did that turn out?”

Seb:” It turned out well, Y/N always bought her daughter Elizabeth on set, which always amazes me. Shes such a lovely child”

You walked down the carpet with your little family. Bill was holding Elizabeth and she spotted Sebastian in an interview.

“Daddy put me down” Bill put her on her two feet and she sprinted off into the crowd

“Lizzie wait!” You called out, but she didn’t listen. You searched through the crowd and saw her run towards Sebastian. You smiled because you knew that she will be safe with him.

“Sebby!” The little girl screamed running towards him. Sebastian looked away from the person interviewing him and saw a little brunette girl with green eyes running to him, his eyes grew wide and mouth agapes

“Lizzy! Theres my favorite little Skarsgard” She ran into him and cuddled his leg, he bent down to pick her up.

Interviewer: “So this must be the little one everyone talks about”

Elizabeth was shy so she hid her face in the crook of his neck. 

Interviewer: “Shy one isn‘t she?” Sebastian rubbed her back and cooed her.

“It’s ok sweetie” The camera man faced his camera towards her.

Interviwer: “How old are you sweetie?”

Lizzie came out of her shell and smiled to the kind man.

“Im four!” She giggled. You and Bill walked towars the pair hand in hand, but came to a halt. You both enjoyed the two bonding, so you stood aside and watched.

“And what do you want to be when you grow up?”

“I want to be a princess! But daddy said that im already a princess. So I want to be Sebastian’s girlfriend!” She giggled and Sebastian laughed and looked at her in awe.

Meanwhile, your husband Bill nearly fainted at her comment and you had to comfort him.

“Wow, you want to be his girlfriend” The interviewer asked and she nodded her head furiously

“Okay okay, time to go back to your mommy now sweetheart.” He kissed her head and left the interview walking towards you and Bill

“Hey” You hugged him and he pecked your cheek. Bill greeted seb and took his daughter in his arms

“Sorry about that. We would’ve gotten her sooner but we enjoyed how happy she was” Bill said

“No, thats not a problem at all”

“Okay sweetie, time to go inside now, the show is about to start” You said to your daughter.

“Can I sit with Sebby?” She asked her father with puppy dog eyes. You glanced over to seb and he nodded

“Yes of course, if its okay with him” Bill asked Seb and he said it was fine. 

The Oscar awards were starting and you made your way inside, you and Bill sat a couple of tables away from Sebastian and Elizabeth who were sitting with Chris, Scarlet, Elizabeth Olsen, RDJ and The Russo Bros.

Sebastian caught you starring and he smiled back at you. ‘Don’t worry, she’s fine’ He mouthed. You mouthed back 

‘Thank You’

After the Oscar awards your little family arrived home, Bill put Elizabeth to bed and kissed her goodnight, while you were sitting on the couch reading the news until you came across and article “Bill and Y/N Skarsgard’s daughter crashes Sebastian Stans interview” and another saying “Elizabeth Skarsgard wants to be Sebastian Stan’s girlfriend when she grows up”

Laughing, you read the article and watched the little video of their interview, your husband joined you in bed.

“Sometimes I wonder if she knows im her father” He said sadly 

“Why do you think that?” you turned over to face him

“Because she loves Sebastian more than me”

You laughed and kissed his nose

“She loves you more than you know”

Canadian Boys l Shawn Mendes Imagine.

prompt: Shawn & (y/n) managed to go from ‘dream couple’ to a messy relationship in front of the cameras, and Shawn doesn’t seem to accept that his ex has decided to move on with the one and only, Justin Bieber.

Originally posted by ladycucciola

Shawn could feel his cheeks heating up as Ellen started a game of Who’d You Rather.

“Rihanna or Sophia Bush?” Ellen asked and pictures of both women appeared on the screen behind him.

“Sophia Bush, no doubt.” he said confidently.

“Hmm, looks like you had your mind already done,” she teased him. “Okay, Sophia Bush or Kendall Jenner?”

“Sophia Bush.” he answered with a hint of laughter on his voice.

“Wow, you’re very sure of yourself.” Ellen said and he shrugged. “Sophia Bush or Margot Robbie?”

“Oh, no! You can’t do that!” he said making the audience laugh. “Ugh, Margot Robbie.” he answered and the audience ooh-ed.

“Margot Robbie or Camila Cabello?” Ellen asked and Shawn shook his head.

“Camila is a friend, so…” he started but the host interrupted him.

“She sure is,” Ellen said, earning laughs from the audience. “So, Camila or…”

“You didn’t let me finish!” Shawn complained laughing.

“It doesn’t matter, it’s my show,” Ellen joked. “Camila Cabello or (y/n) (y/l/n)?”

Shawn felt his cheeks heating up profusely. “They both are very good friends…”

“Oh, is there something you aren’t telling me, Shawn?” Ellen asked.

“No! Of course no.”

“Then answer the question.” Ellen said smiling and looking to the screen where there was Camila and you.

Shawn bit the inside of his cheek. “(y/n), she’s amazing.” he answered and everyone seemed happy with his answer.

“Then I guess we have a winner!” Ellen announced as another picture of you filled the large screen. “Shawn Mendes everybody!”

My favorite Percival Graves tropes in no particular order:
  • Graves is a workaholic and a grump with no social life
  • him and Seraphina go waaaay back
  • he wears round reading glasses (yea we all saw that one interview)
  • always buying Credence food, esp. sandwiches (technically canon)
  • buys Credence’s his first wand + new clothes 
  • basically always a sugar daddy with different levels of explicitness 
  • loves The Law - until it stops him from having Credence and then The Law goes out the window
  • finds Credence unbearably appealing for reasons that could include: pale skin, jawline, cheekbones, vulnerability, innocence, lips, lashes 
  • Credence inspires a newfound protectiveness in him
  • Graves wants to murder Mary Lou (sometimes actually does?)
  • soft spot for rebellious underling Tina
  • outside of work, doesn’t know what he’s doing MOST of the time
Diabolik lovers ‘’5th Anniversary book ‘’ [Reiji’s interview] ~translation|traducción~

Thanks to @bittersweet-faerietale  for having helped me with this translation!

  • 1. Right now, what is your favorite thing?

Let me see… …Ahh, long ago I bought a new set of cups. I did not like the manufacturer’s brand, but its design caught my attention.So I ended up buying it anyway. Recently I have been using them constantly.

  • 2. What kind of fashion are you into lately?

Recently I open my shirt’s collar  but not excessively, I let it look in a casual way. There are not many styles to choose from.

  • 3. What habits do you have that you’ll do without realizing?

I did not realize I had any, but recently I discovered it. Apparently I have a habit of opening and closing my pocket watch when I’m bored.I want to fix it as soon as possible.

  • 4. How do you spend your days-off?

If other problems are not occurring, then I enjoy my tea, and I polish my  tableware collection. I also read a great deal.And lastly, as needed, I also cook and clean. Well, it is better to do it when there are problems though… (huh?)

  • 5. What do you wear to sleep?

I am still looking for pajamas to sleep in. I exchange them according to the season that we are in, I like them to be soft to the touch and I select the ones that are solid colors.

  • 6. What do you definitely do before sleeping?

Of course I drink a cup of flavored tea. If the taste is too strong then I would not sleep, so I dilute it a bit. And recently I also put petals in it before drinking.

  • 7. What part of your body you like the best?

I have not thought about it. But just for answering, I would say that it is my hand. It is the part that I look the most, the one that I dedicate myself to use, and the part that I take more care of.

  • 8. What do you like the most of your room?

What I like most obviously is my tableware collection. Waking up and seeing what you like is the most relaxing of all. [In love with my tableware collection cough]

  • 9. Tell us one memorable impression that you have of your brothers.

…Long ago Kanato go out the castle and went astray. I occasionally went outside and incidentally found him.I do not know if he had been tired or what, but obediently he listened to what I said and returned with me to the castle.Now that I think about it, this was the first and last time Kanato was obedient.

  • 10. What you think of KarlHeinz?

I respect my father. Reigning the great Makai for sure was not an easy job. I also think others things about him … … But I do not think it is time to tell it.

  • 11. Where would you go on a date?

In particular I do not have any wish like that, but maybe I would go to the aquarium. The image of a dark and quiet place is formed in my mind.Where there are not many people. So the ‘maid’ would feel comfortable.

  • 12. What does a girl do to make your heart skip a beat?

I like it when she is about to cry and desperately tries to hide it so that I won’t notice it.I keep testing her until she can not endure it anymore and she breaks in tears.

  • 13. How does her blood taste?

No matter what kind of blood it isn’t sufficient to satisfy me like her blood will…. …It is to that degree of delicious. No matter what words I would select, I can not express that flavor.

  • 14. From which body part do you like to suck her blood?

From the usual place: her neck. It is the easiest place to drink blood.

  • 15. What does her existence mean to you?

I do not think it’s something you should dare to ask people… …Let me see… she interests me. She causes too many problems, but that is also part of her charm.She is too careless, I would like that she were a little more cautious.Surely she must think that I am annoying to be telling her this but..

I watch a lot of documentaries. I think they are incredible tools for learning and increasing our awareness of important issues. The power of an interesting documentary is that it can open our minds to new possibilities and deepen our understanding of the world.

On this list of mind expanding documentaries you will find different viewpoints, controversial opinions and even contradictory ideas. Critical thinking is recommended. I’m not a big fan of conspiracy documentaries but I do like films that challenge consensus reality and provoke us to question the everyday ideas, opinions and practices we usually take for granted.

Watching documentaries is one of my favorite methods of self-education. If I find a documentary inspiring, I usually spend more time researching the different ideas and interesting people interviewed in the film. I hope you find these documentaries as enlightening as I did!

Taylor Swift Appreciation Week: day 5 (FAVORITE PHOTOSHOOT)

1989 album cover photoshoot: “And then it was suggested to me that we use a different picture for the album cover because, they kept saying, “We need eyes, lips, hair on an album cover. You know no one’s going to know who that is.” And I was like, “That’s the point. We’re starting over.” Also, the reason I didn’t put my face on the album cover is because I didn’t want people to fully diagnose the emotional DNA of this album before it came out. If I’m smiling, it’s a happy record; if I’m frowning, it’s a sad record. I wanted people to be able to detect no emotion on my face. It was just taken on this ‘80s Polaroid camera that I have.”
