this is why this team is amazing

anonymous asked:

So I have a very strange head canon I think you'll like for klance, basically lance is amazing at DIY crafts, he's very detail oriented and before him and Keith got dating he made Keith some cute gifts and would leave them for Keith outside his room

yes! im here for this. more lance & crafts because why not:

  • he is the arts & crafts god when it comes to babysitting his younger siblings
  • lance loves glitter and loves putting it on things that he makes 
  • (u can often find glitter peppered across his face and hands sometimes. keith calls them his glitter freckles)
  • lance is like a friendship bracelet making sweatshop ok that kid loves making friendship bracelets because he finds it lowkey therapeutic and it gives him an opportunity to show appreciation to his friends/family
  • team vld all have matching bracelets he made in their respective colours
  • but lance & keith have their own matching ones that he made for them after an exhausting battle they had (before they started dating) 
  • he can definitely knit and he knits his friends/family socks/sweaters/throw blankets for christmas 
  • macaroni art? thats his shit
  • hes also probably really good at scrapbooking 
  • he also makes his own cards for holidays/events so it feels more personal
  • basically he loves doing little diy things because it allows him to use his hands a lot and keep them occupied and helps when hes feeling down

The concept of making a TV show sounds amazing. You have a team of writers. You could have a group of people from different backgrounds, races, genders, sexualities, and they could draw from their own experiences to make a super complex, realistic, interesting and diverse group of characters, with interesting story lines. Yet, somehow they manage to create the same awful straight white guy over and over again.

This is why I don't get why many people insist he had much more negotiation power this time. Yeah he's not 16 out of a reality show with no other means to enter the industry and he does have an amazing team behind him but still. That might not mean much. Contracts are lingering effects and your post about the possible clauses his contract had makes it very clear his negotiation power might have been very limited. We'll see what he gets in return for this deal tho. Specially on a personal level

It may have been limited, but not that much. He’s about as close to a slam dunk signing as there is – biggest star from the biggest band of the last half decade. Many labels wanted him and probably offered him great deals that he could negotiate. All he had to do was find another label willing to give him what he wanted and Columbia had to match that. It’s not just money – matching means other things, too.

I once worked on a deal that involved a client that produced regular sports entertainment shows that had been aired on a particular network of tv channels. When that deal ended, that network had a matching right, but another network offered more prime time shows on their flagship channel. Not more money, but better placement. The old network chose not to match and so the company went with the new network. Had they matched, however, the company would have had a better deal than their old one. 

I do think that Harry’s deal was probably a result of contractual limitations and that given free choice, he probably wouldn’t have chosen Columbia. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad deal, though, nor that it’s anything like what he used to have. He was in a far far far better negotiating position for this than for the earlier deal, even if it wasn’t the perfect position.

The moment when you realize how many people in the entire archipelago have ever come to the top of Snotlout’s heart…

“Astrid, do you need a shoulder to cry on?” (Team Astrid)

“Did I tell you you look amazing today? ‘Cause you do.” (HTTYD 2)

“Did you miss me? I think you did. That’s why you threw that tree at me.” (Have Dragon Will Travel pt.1)

“Finally, someone recognizes my worth!” (Defenders of the Wing pt.2)

“He’s amazing~” (Big Man on Berk)

“Bring it in, but this time, for the real thing.” (Maces & Talons pt.1)

“Is Dagur coming? He’s so COOL!” (Twinsanity)

Impressive.

someone: why are you staring into space? [waves their hand in front of my eyes] haha, what’s going on in there?

me: [thinking about how lance, who is a smart, beautiful, funny, and generally amazing person, thinks he has no spot on the team and that he’s not a worthy paladin of the blue lion, and even thinks of himself as a “seventh wheel” to the rest of team voltron (who are basically his family now, whether he likes it or not), even though he’s vital to team voltron and everything would crumble without him] uh, nothing, just daydreaming haha

All For The Game

but the all for the game books? why isn’t it more widely known? why isn’t every person i meet talking about it? fuck i’d go to the point to say it’s hands down the best series i’ve read till date. i’m sorry sjm and leigh bardugo ily but nothing broke my heart like neil finding andrew in that room so helpless so uncaring. nothing compares to the complete joy i felt when andreil happened. the amazing amazing consent required for anything and everything. when neil’s team mates accepted him no matter who he was- nathaniel or neil. when neil accepted that he was neil josten- number 10, starting striker, foxhole fucking court. kevin’s strength. dan, matt, renee, allison, nicky and even aaron killed my whole heart. wymack. these characters are so imperfectly broken that i wanted to set everything and anything on fire. these kind of books change people. they are so fricking important i can’t even begin to explain. fucking thank you nora sakavic.

so i guess all i’m saying is just leave whatever you’re doing, go and read the all for the game series. and experience such intense pain that your life becomes literal hell. but it is so worth it.

The Appeal Of Kyoto Animation

I have seen many people saying how K-On is a cheap anime with no creativity and effort put behind this anime. In this blog I want to try to explain what makes Kyoto Animation so appealing and why this statement is not true.

Kyoto Animation is a popular studio which is known for great animation and their slice of life stories, with their unique character designs and very relaxing atmosphere. The funny thing is that what I just said is something you normally shouldn’t. Let me explain this.

I think we have all seen statements like “The animation from Studio Madhouse is amazing” or “Toei Animation always suck”. The reason why it’s not really fair to say that is because the staff for the most studios are usually changing. You don’t have the same team working on every Madhouse production. You don’t have the same director working on every Toei Animation production. Many animators are freelancer who have their own style and way of drawing. So if you see a scene which is really badly animated, it could be the result of just one or two animators screwing up. So blaming the whole studio is kinda unfair. The same can be said about great animated scenes.

A tragedy in black and white

Since you all wanted to know Darks backstory, i’ll write a little thing about my depiction of Dark. 


Dark came from a parallel universe very similar to us, he was called Mark Fischbach, he was a youtuber under the name Markiplier that brought joy to millions every day. 
He had a girlfriend called Amy, an amazing team made up of his best friends and a irish friend called Seán.
His life was amazing, that until he caught the attention of someone- no- something that had a particular interest on him. 
What happened? 
He was called in for a interview, and he went unaware of what will happen.

Afterwards the man woke up in a place called Raspy Hill.
He was so confused, his body was clearly full of holes made by a sharp object, but yet, he was walking, breathing, living.
And suddenly it hit him. 
Where was everyone? His friends? Amy? 
Why was this place in black and white?
He could not leave the place, this nightmare fuel place, no matter how hard he tried every time he reached the edge of the map it looped him back.
So Mark wandered, months- no years in Raspy Hill. 
And he realized that slowly, his body was loosing all its colors, he turning black and white.
He will never go back home. 
He will never see his friends again.
 
Finally, after what felt like a eternity his hope and determination died and he gave in. 
He gave in to the darkness and death of Raspy Hill. 

His body lacked color, the man had permanent dark bags under his eyes and something else started driving him, hatred, spite. 
For months he wrecked the place that kept on looping and regenerating. The anger was endless, he was a mess.

Until finally it stopped and there was only silence.
There was silence for a long time. His mind slowly cleared and the important questions emerged.
When was even the last time he took a shower? Or slept? Or ate something?

When was the last time he felt something?

It’s 1.30am and I just got in. Publishing people are WILDE. We took a lot of group shots, all of them were terribly dark, this is the best and I think it perfectly encapsulates the tone. If you haven’t already pre ordered #WildeLikeMe, why? It will make your life at least 18% better than it already is. Look at this team of people making it amazing! I love you ❤️ Always drink responsibly ❤️ http://ift.tt/2jJ5NI9

Watching this back, I can honestly say this is amazing writing and exactly what Jen and Colin were talking about when saying the show does an amazing job at showing what real relationships are like.  Although it’s a tad different because not everyone’s partner has killed their significant other’s grandfather, it’s still the same in the sense of communication, trust, and being a team.  That’s why this scene is so perfect because it shows that Emma wasn’t angry about the situation, she was angry because he withheld the truth and I think many people in real life can relate to that.

When you love someone and are with someone, you become a team.  You rely on one another for help and support.  That person loves you no matter what and will never be angry with you for telling the truth, they will get angry if you withhold the truth.  And that’s what is shown in this clip and it’s perfectly shown.  Killian and Emma are a team, they will always be a team.  Killian has to rely on Emma and tell her when something is bothering him and Emma will always be accepting of him because she loves him.

Honestly, I am so excited for the upcoming episodes because it will show Emma having her worst fear come up again, abandonment, but we will have Killian fighting for Emma and fighting to get back to her because he loves her.  Then we’ll have a second proposal and then they’ll get married!  I think us CS shippers have a lot to look forward to!

Spread The Love with EXO

EXOGLOBAL in collaboration with various intl fanbases (EXO-L Starglow, Aeriverse, EXO Planet Mexico, INTEXOLTEAM, WEAREXO and EXOBRProjects) have teamed up to produce a 5th year anniversary project for EXO from YOU.


The ‘Spread Love with EXO’ project is meant to showcase EXO’s achievements for five years through a worldwide platform - Twitter. EXO was the only musical artist to get on the Top 10 on Twitter without having a Twitter account, and Twitter is where we will show our appreciation for their hard work and achievements!


Our project goal is to show the world exactly who EXO is and why EXO is timeless, unbeatable and legendary. With the help of many amazing individuals, we will create a video that will include everything that defines EXO from the period of 12.04.08 to 17.04.08. To celebrate EXO’s fifth year anniversary, our tweet will be promoted WORLDWIDE on 170408, the most special date for EXO and EXO-L! People will be able to view this on their timeline regardless of whether they follow our page or not! EXO fan or not. Our EXO will truly be worldwide for 17.04.08
'Spread Love with EXO’ will be completely run by international fans because it is time we come together and give back. We have watched EXO from the sidelines and Twitter is our way of communicating with each other. Now, let’s truly become one and show EXO our love.

We can only succeed with the help of all international fans. To promote a tweet and spread it worldwide will be costly, but we will open up donations so every one of you can contribute. Donations over a certain amount will be rewarded with gifts from EXOGLOBAL, Exo-L StarGlow, and EXO PH!


The success is down to you! Are you ready to Spread Love with EXO? 

So we all rallied together to get #RyanPotterForTimDrake trending now let’s look at Teresa Ting for Cassandra Cain.

First I love how Ryan and Teresa @ Ben Affleck.

Second asian representation means so much and I definitely don’t want Cass to be whitewashed. Now why would Teresa be perfect, listen up children:

- She graduated from NYU with a psychology bachelors so she would understand body language which my girl Cass Cain is amazing for.

- she’s loved Martial arts since she was 6, she learnt taekwondo for 8 years, She learnt traditional Chinese Shaolin Kung-fu, where she built her foundation in weaponry and acrobatics (to up her killing potential). She then explored the more aesthetic and competitive field of Kung-fu called Contemporary Wushu, which she continues to study to this day, and has entered several National Wushu Team Trial competitions.

- Her dream is to be an action heroine who kicks ass.

- She hopes to bring her cultural influences and diverse training to the camera, making a name for women and revolutionizing the film world.

MY GIRL TERESA TING WOULD BE PERFECT FOR CASS SO PLEASE CAN WE ARRANGE SOMETHING FOR HER BECAUSE CASS IS AMAZING I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HER

Young Avengers: 15 Reasons The Gillen and McKelvie Run Was Great
Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie's Young Avengers run is a unique reading experience. Here are 15 reasons why.

For fans of Marvel’s comic book and inematic Universes, “The Avengers” is a team whose name brings to mind different members. Some may think of Captain America, The Hulk and Ant-Man while others think of Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye. As amazing as these teams are, there is something special about the teen lineup of the “Young Avengers”, especially the team put together by regular creative collaborators Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie.

While the Young Avengers’ original lineup had members that were connected to The Avengers, this relaunched roster had each member attempting to distance themselves from the past. With a backdrop of gorgeous art, creative comic panels and a youthful spirit, the Young Avengers could strike out on their own and save the world. Here are 15 reasons why this run is the best.

The light was seeping through the windows, cascading across your face. You squinted your eyes shut further to try and keep the light from shining into your eyes. When your feeble attempt failed, you tossed an arm over your eyes. It wasn’t often that you got to sleep in so naturally you were trying to make the most of it while you could. The only thing that you knew would help you sleep was your boyfriend, Castiel. However, the angel was on business in Heaven, and you had no idea when he would be returning.

Before long, just as you were starting to drift back into slumber, you heard a door slamming out in the hallway. You tried to suppress your irritated groan, but instead, the strangled cry escaped your lips. You took your other pillow and threw it over your head as you pleaded with yourself to just stay asleep. Didn’t these fuckers know it was your birthday?

All you had talked about the past two weeks, the only thing of importance that had left your lips, was the simple fact that all you wanted to do was sleep in on your birthday. You didn’t think that it was too terribly much to ask of the two men and then angel that lived in the bunker. After all you were practically a live in maid–not to mention a hunting partner.
