Heimdall IS The SOUL STONE

There has been a theory going around for quite some time about Heimdall and how he possesses the final Infinity Stone, the Soul Stone. Well, it’s a good theory and all, but after watching the Thor: Ragnarök trailer, I came up with a better Heimdall/Soul Stone theory that will most likely end up being true.

My theory is that since the Soul stone takes on a mind of its own in the comics, and since Adam Warlock now most likely won’t have it, that Heimdall IS the Soul Stone.

Like all Infinity Stones, they were scattered across the universe, but the Soul Stone developed a mind of its own, its very own soul. After some time, it created a body for itself, like, an artificial intelligence (Ultron, Vision) building its own body.The body itself is the Soul Stone, and that is Heimdall. The stone won’t appear on Earth in Black Panther or Spider-Man, it’ll appear in Thor: Ragnarök when Heimdall is on his own and discovers what he truly is.

It would explain why he’s capable of seeing every living being in the universe, why he’s so powerful, and why Odin kept him close (if Odin ever knew). It would also explain why he has Orange eyes, the Soul Stone’s color in the MCU, when no other Asgardian or alien has them. It would also be a huge twist that fans won’t see coming. It was right in front of them the whole damn time.

Thor: Ragnarok: Loki's New Headpiece Comes Straight From The Comics
Marvel Comics today released the first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, the third solo film to be [...]

Marvel Comics today released the first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, the third solo film to be released as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The film offered a new look at Loki, played again by Tom Hiddleston. Loki is showing a bit of swagger, flipping a dagger over in each hand as he walks towards the camera, and he’s also sporting some new headgear.

Loki’s headpiece features the character’s iconic long, golden horns. Those were featured on the helmet Loki wore in the original Thor as well.

The major difference is that this new headpiece is not a helmet. Instead, it allows Loki’s long, black hair to flow freely from his head.

The new look for Hiddleston’s Loki appears to be inspired by the Loki character design done by artist Jamie McKelvie towards the end of his run with writer Kieron Gillen on Young Avengers. That series began with Loki still a child after having died during Marvel’s Siege event and then being resurrected.

Towards the end of Young Avengers, Loki decided it was time to grow up. Through some magical spells and energy borrowed from Wiccan, Loki was aged up to something more like a teenager or young adult. He’s maintained that look ever since, through his own Loki: Agent of Asgard and Vote Loki series and into his return to the pages of The Mighty Thor.

The cinematic Loki’s headgear appears larger than comic book Loki’s, covering more of Loki’s face, and the small horns on the comic book version’s center seem to be minimized but is otherwise pretty close to the same. The funny part is that, when McKelvie’s design debuted, some noted that it looked a lot like a young Tom Hiddleston. It seems art imitates life imitates art.

In Thor: Ragnarok currently a 4.11 out of 5 ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating, making it the seventh most anticipated upcoming comic book movie among ComicBook.com readers. How excited are you for Thor: Ragnarok? Let us know by giving it your own anticipation rating below.

In Marvel Studio’s Thor Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first, he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!

Thor Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi from a screenplay by Eric Pearson and stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins

All of these Gym Seb videos are making me feel (after I stop fainting and needing to fan myself at the attractive person doing strong things) super bad about myself by comparison, because here I am, a hideous fat blob sat at a desk for 8 hours a day only to go home and be too exhausted to do anything other than cook a lazy dinner and sit on a sofa until sleepy time, so I’m going to put this here for myself and anyone else who needs it:

Getting this fit is literally these people’s jobs.

When actors like Seb or Hemsworth or whoever are gearing up to go be a superhero for a few weeks or months or however long it takes to film this shit, they’re not squeezing in a visit to the gym after a day of systems analysis or teaching basic literacy skills to small children or bagging people’s groceries, they’re… working out for a living.  They don’t have a full day’s worth of admin to plough through before rocking up to the gym and doing a day’s training like you might do.  They don’t have exams they should be revising for.  They’re literally getting up and going to the gym several days a week because it’s their job.  It’s not your job.  So it’s not a fair point of comparison to look at them and feel bad about yourself if you work a desk job, or if your thyroid is fucked, or you’ve got arthritis in your knees, and so you’re too tired or haven’t got enough time to put that much more work in on top of the amount you’re already able to do in order to look like the super people in the movies we enjoy.

We’re all doing our best, and we’re all beautiful.

'Thor: Ragnarok' Trailer Is Marvel and Disney's Most Watched Ever in 24 Hours

People want their “Ragnarok”-n-roll.

Marvel’s promise of a Thor vs. Hulk battle seems to have re-energized the Thor movie franchise.

The trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, which was unleashed Monday by Disney, the parent company of Marvel, has garnered more than 136 million views in only 24 hours.

It becomes the not only the most viewed Marvel trailer ever, but also the studio’s most viewed trailer ever across all its brands, which includes Disney’s live-action and animation divisions, Pixar, Star Wars, as well as Marvel.

The Beauty and the Beast trailer was the previous 24-hour record-holder for Disney with 127.6 million views. Star Wars: The Force Awakens was viewed 112 million times in that time frame. Captain America: Civil War held the previous Marvel record with 94 million views.

The trailer was met with tremendous enthusiasm, with it channeling a Guardians of the Galaxy vibe with both music and sci-fi fantasy worlds as it set up a scenario where Thor, played by a returning Chris Hemsworth, is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer. It offered glimpses of Hela, the movie’s powerful new villain played by Cate Blanchett. And it closed with a killer line as Thor, forced to fight in a gladiatorial arena, sees his Avengers comrade Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and bellows, “He’s a friend from work.” It’s a line he quickly rues saying.

The Ragnarok trailer doesn’t hold the most viewed overall record. The trailer for New Line’s adaptation of Stephen King’s It was viewed 197 million times in the 24 hours after its March 29 release, while Fate of the Furious was eyeballed 139 million times.  

Taika Waititi, the New Zealand filmmaker behind the acclaimed indies Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows, is in the director’s seat for Ragnarok.

The movie will be released in the U.S. on Nov. 3.

Have you seen these batshit crazy photos from Thor: Ragnarok that just popped up courtesy of Entertainment Weekly? That’s Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, Jeff Goldblum himself as the Grandmaster, Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, and Cate Blanchett as the big bad in this movie, Hela. There are a few more photos floating around, but these were the cream of the crop. Enjoy!

Here’s the official plot synopsis for the movie, which hits theaters November 3, 2017:


“Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok – the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization – at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela (Cate Blanchett). But first he must survive a deadly gladatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – The Incredible Hulk!”

Tom’s mobile beeped. It was a sign that a new video was uploaded by (Y/N). He was on a break while the crew was preparing the set for his upcoming scene. He took his mobile and looked at the video. There she was, the funny cute colleague. She was in her personal caravan, wearing big glasses on her nose and saying: “Being classy makes me gassy, haha, yes." 

The man started to laugh out loud, not holding it back. Robert was the nearest person to him and he had to know why was he laughing that much. "Hey man, what’s with you?” When Tom showed him the video, he understood. “You two are having this war for over two weeks."

Feelings-Chris Schistad Imagine

Requested: Yes

Warnings: just fluff

A/N: Talk Norwegian to Me is the prequel to this and I suggest you read that before this one :)

Originally posted by redfoxincutesocks

  “HE WHAT?” Noora, Vilde, Eva, Sansa, and Chris exclaimed.

  We were hanging out in Eva’s room, pre drinking for some other bus’ party that night when I decided to share mine and Chris’ makeout with them. It felt cathartic to get it off my chest, but almost immediately afterwards, I felt vulnerable. They all looked at me with shocked expressions on their faces, and I suppose it was fair.

  “And how long ago did this happen?” Eva asked. 

  “A couple of weeks ago,” I muttered.

   “You waited two weeks before telling us this? I thought we were friends,” Vilde whined.

  “I guess I needed some more alcohol before I felt comfortable, you know, telling you guys,” I said.

   Noora massaged her temples, something she only did when she was stressed out. “Okay, okay, how exactly did this happen?”

   “He was helping me practice Norwegian in his room—”

   “Makes sense, he wanted to make you vulnerable,” Sansa said.

   “It wasn’t like that, we just went up there and I don’t know why but I didn’t think about it twice. Anyway, he was telling me this funny story and…and I stressed out because I couldn’t remember venn,” I continued. “And so he gave me vodka to help loosen me up.”

   “This sounds so bad,” Eva said.

   “Well, it gets worse because before I knew it, he was kissing me and I was kissing him back. Now, it’s all awkward.”

   “Only because you guys made out and then you slept in the same bed together?” Noora asked. 

   I hated how well the blonde girl knew me so well in the short amount of time that we had bonded. “Well, not exactly.”

   “Tell us!” Chris demanded.

   “He told me that he really did like me and I just sort of left. I feel so bad now.”
   “Why? Because you don’t like him back? Which makes sense because he’s such a big player, almost as bad as William,” Vilde said.

   “Do you like him, Y/N?” Eva asked.

   I shrugged. “I mean, I like him more after getting to know him but, I don’t know.”

   All the girls looked at each other, as if silently asking each other for help on helping me and I couldn’t have felt worse. The only reason I told them was because I couldn’t make up my mind and I felt that I was losing it. Chris had quickly become more withdrawn during our lessons and he seemed to be a muted down version of himself. I hated knowing that I was the reason that he was acting this way and the last thing I wanted to do was hurt him.

   “Forget about it, guys, let’s just get hammered and forget our problems,” I said.

   Chris nodded. “I like.” 

   “Are you sure that’s what you want, Y/N?” Noora asked.

   I responded by downing the last of my wine glass. Eva’s mom had good wine and it was certainly helping me relax. Besides, didn’t everyone always tells me to relax and have some fun? 

   About an hour later, my friends and I were walking into yet another house party already filled to the brim with girls dressed in their slinkiest outfits and boys trying to stick their tongues down everyone’s throats. Girl Chris disappeared after a couple of seconds into the fray, so Vilde, Noora, Eva, Sana, and I grabbed more drinks in the kitchen.

   “I love Party Y/N!” Eva cheered as I downed another vodka shot.

   “I like her too,” Sana said.

   Noora frowned. “You really don’t want to slow down?”

   I shook my head. “I’m fine, Noora, I can drink, I’m not a lightweight.”

  Then, Rihanna’s “S&M” came on and I made Vilde and Eva dance with me. Sana glared at me when I tried to pull her in to dance so I settled for Noora. The room spun round and round as the music played and I had never felt so light before. For a while, I had forgotten about Chris even though I had spotted him off in a corner, talking to some girls. For some reason, that made the pit of my stomach clench so I quickly turned around and faced my friends, all who looked worried…I think.

   “I’m getting hot!” I shouted over the music.

   “I’ll take her to get some water,” Noora volunteered.

   Eva and Vilde nodded and kept dancing while Noora helped me out of the dance area. She tugged me into the kitchen and handed me a cup of water.

  “It tastes so good,” I moaned.

  “Yes, alcohol tends to make hydrating water taste good,” Noora teased.

   I ran a hand through my hair. “It just feels so good to be out with you guys and not think about him.” 

   “Uh huh,” Noora said, nodding. “Are you sure because you looked a bit upset when you saw him with—”

  “I’m not upset! Just…just annoyed is all.”

   “Hello, ladies,” I turned to see a gorgeous dark-haired boy coming up to us. 

   “Hi, Sam,” Noora said, sounding bored.

   “Noora, who’s your friend?” Sam eyed me up and down and I gulped.

   “Y/N, this is Sam, we have science together,” Noora said.

   “Hi.”
   “Y/N, you look insanely hot tonight,” Sam said, gesturing to the black v-neck mini dress I was wearing. 

    I smiled. “Thanks, Sam.”

   As I spoke longer with Sam, I could feel eyes on me. I glanced and saw that it was Chris. He looked upset and all I wanted to do was rub in his face how much I didn’t care, but I did care. So, I kept talking to Sam and we drunkenly debated politics—a smart decision, I know. Then, somehow, we got on the subject of emotions.

   “They are so ridiculous, the only things we really need to know is if we are in danger or if we are safe. Basically survival instincts,” I said.

   “Really? And why do you think that?” Sam asked.

   “Because all our emotions do is make things complicated. Imagine this: you and a friend of yours of the opposite sex bond a little bit over the years. Caring about someone is completely natural but what if they say they don’t like you back? Then, it becomes all awkward and you can either allow them to move on with someone else or you could really fight for them and possibly ruin the relationship.”

   “So, you think feelings ruin relationships?” Noora asked.

   “Yes, especially if they’re one sided.” 

   “But what if it’s mutual?”

   “Great, then you can go be happy together before you two get on each other’s nerves and break up.” I sighed. “And then there are the times when you really hate a person and they hate you back. However, you’re forced to get to know them for some odd reason and then you realize that they aren’t that bad after all, you might even like them, come to find out, they like you…a lot. But you’ve spent all this time disliking them but you kind of like them, and now your feelings are all mixed up. It’s so frustrating!”
  Sam nodded. “I hear that.”

  “Why can’t everything just be logical?”

   “Because life doesn’t work like that,” Noora said.

  I groaned and leaned against the counter. “I hate feelings.”

  “Well, if you’re up for it, I’m not into the whole feelings thing either,” Sam said, getting closer to me.

   But I didn’t like Sam, I barely knew Sam. His offer was a little tempting though since he did look like the lost Hemsworth brother. Any other girl would jump at this opportunity, but I wasn’t every girl. I didn’t even get a chance to respond since someone interrupted us.

   “Excuse me, can I talk to Y/N for a moment?” Chris asked.

   I froze. No words came to my drunken mind since I definitely didn’t plan on speaking to Chris that night. Sam must’ve allowed Chris to interrupt because he got closer to me. “Chris—”

   He cut me off with his lips, my eyes fluttered close, and I almost immediately wrapped my arms around his neck. It felt really good to kiss him again and I had a feeling that I wouldn’t regret it.

   “I like you,” I blurted out when he pulled away. “And…and I’m sorry that I couldn’t admit it earlier, it’s just weird to think that we could’ve gone from detesting each other to liking each other. Are we cool again?”

   “Yeah, on one condition.”

   “Name it.”

   “You don’t flirt with any more guys,” Chris said in a very serious voice.

   I couldn’t help but laugh. “Deal and the same goes for you.”

   “I can’t help it women find me irresistible.”

   Chris laughed when I slapped his chest.

   “This’ll be one for the books,” Noora muttered before sipping some more vodka. 

   Well, she was right.

This was the best birthday present ever. You were from San Francisco and had spent years dreaming about going to the San Diego’s Comic-con. You loved Marvel and everything that had to do with it, so that place was a dream come true for you. Sadly, the tickets used to be too expensive and were sold too fast so you never got the chance. But when you turned 22, your best friend gave you the best present someone could ever give you: tickets to the comic-con!

The moment you had them in your hands you rushed to the web page to check the program and let out a scream when you saw your friend, Anne, had given you tickets for the day when The Avengers panel would take place.

“My fucking God, Anne! I’m gonna meet Captain America!” You squealed while you were walking into the Comic-con itself.

The moment you gave your tickets you started looking around. It was much better than what you ever imagined. Many cosplays, dressed up people, photoshoot, interviews everywhere and your heroes all around you!

“Close your mouth or a fly will go in”, Anne laughed as she saw you looking around speechless.

“This is just amazing, really”, you mumbled shaking your head. “Thank you so much”, you told your friend as you hugged her tight.

The Avengers panel was at noon so you two walked around the place for two hours before going there. Somehow you managed to seat at the front row which almost made you cry. You were holding Anne’s hand the whole time since you felt like scream if you didn’t. She was truly being your rock that day.

“Ladies and gentleman, please, welcome… The Avengers! Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, Scarlet Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo!”

You got up and started clapping while all of them went up to the stage. Your eyes immediately found Chris. He was so good looking! And those damn eyes could be seen from the other side of the room. They all took a seat and you did the same, biting your lip as you looked at all of them.

“So guys, congratulations for The Avengers 2, I gotta say I loved it!” The host said. You nodded smiling, it had been such a good movie. Marvel never disappointed you.

“It was a fun movie to film, to be honest. I mean, working for Marvel and with the Russo brothers is always such a rewarding experience”, Robert talked on the microphone while the rest of the team nodded.

“So tell us, where did you film it?” The interviewer asked.

“Actually, we did a lot of filming in Europe, the Avengers facility was in Norwich and Sokovia was actually in Italy” Chris explained.

“Italy? Wow!” The host replied.

“The team made such a good work to make it look like…well, Sokovia”, he said making you laugh a little.

“Indeed, I would have never said it was Italy”

The interview lasted for like 15 minutes before the audience started asking questions. You didn’t ask anything since you were too shy and shocked to say anything else. Before you even noticed, this part of the panel was gone and now you had 30 minutes before the signing started.

“I can’t do this, Anne”, you said holding your Avengers’ poster as you waited in the line.

“You’ve been waiting years for this, of course you can”, your friend encouraged you.

“But he’s so hot! I won’t be able to say anything coherent”, you sighed looking at the table where they were already seated, waiting for the signing to start.

“Then be incoherent but don’t be quiet! It’s not the moment to be quiet”, Anne said as she pushed you a little to move forward.

You didn’t have to wait long and before you could realise what was going on, you were in front of Scarlet Johansson and she was signing your poster as she talked to you.

“How are you? You seem nervous”, she smiled at you.

“I am. I’m freaking out. I had been waiting to come to this Comic-con for years now and I can’t believe I’m here”, you said as fast as you could.

“Well, I hope you enjoyed it”, she replied with a smile.

“Indeed”, you said while you moved to stand in front of Robert.

You looked around for a moment just to discover that Chris was just next to Jeremy and Renner was the next one. Just with that, you started freaking out once again.

“Someone’s nervous”, Robert smiled at you. You nodded biting your lip. “Don’t worry, Jer is a good guy”, he winked at you and passed the poster to Jeremy.

You looked at Chris for a moment and for some reason you saw he was actually looking at you. Immediately, you felt your cheeks getting red as you tried to focus on what Jeremy was saying, but all you could do was smiling at him.

“Hi”, Chris said as soon as you were in front of him. “What’s your name?” He asked.

“I…I’m… (Y/N). My name is (Y/N)”, you managed to say. He smiled at you and looked down at the poster to sign it.

“Such a beautiful name that one”, he said and looked at you once again before writing something on the poster. “Read that”, he winked and passed the poster to Mark.

Once you passed Chris you felt a bit calmed, but the fact that his eyes were on you the whole time didn’t really help. Somehow, you still managed to have a short conversation with Mark and Chris. Once you were finished you took the poster and looked at all the autographs. It was just amazing!

Looking around for Anne you hurried to where she was waiting for you just to show her your signed poster. This was going straight to your wall. No doubt.

“(Y/N)… What’s that?” She asked taking the poster.

“What’s what?” You said taking it from her hands.

She pointed at the Cap’s image that was covered by his signature. But there was something else: “meet me after the signing at the back of the stage where we had the panel ;)”

“Oh my…” you mumbled and looked at Anne who was looking at you shocked. “This is a joke, isn’t it?” You said.

“It doesn’t look like a joke at all, if you ask me”, she replied looking at the message. “You have to go”, she immediately said.

“You think so?” You asked unsure.

“I didn’t give you tickets for this so you missed a chance like this one”, she immediately replied.

She was right. Maybe it wasn’t true, but how many times would you have a chance like this one? Ever again. So you had to take it. Biting your lip, you looked back at the table just when Chris was looking at you again. When your eyes met, he winked at you before focusing his attention on the guy in front of him.

You two decided to sit down on a bench and wait for the signing to be over. When there were only three people left on the line, you looked at your friend before going to the spot Chris had told you. It wasn’t actually easy to get there since there was security everywhere but you managed to sneak in the back somehow.

“Hey there”, you looked around for the source of the voice and felt really nervous when you saw it was Chris. “I thought you wouldn’t come”, he said walking closer to you.

“Sorry I…it was hard to sneak in here. It’s crowded with security”, you explained.

“I’m glad you made it”, he nodded.

“So…why did you want me to come anyway?” You asked. He chuckled a little and ran a hand over his head.

“This is going to be so creepy but… there was something about you, besides the fact that you’re so beautiful, that made me want to get to know you”, he said with his hands in his pockets.

You looked at him like you didn’t even hear him. He had to be kidding you. It was a bad joke, but it had to be one. There was no way he could be interested in you. Not in that sense at least. It was Chris Evans we were talking about.

“Don’t mess with me”, you laughed nervously.

“I’m not”, he said smiling as well. “We will be in town for another couple of days and I would like a date with you in that time”, he added.

“Are you serious?” You asked still not believing what you heard.

“I am”, he replied. “So? Do you want to go and grab a coffee once I’m finished here?” He suggested.

“A coffee sounds good, actually”, you nodded.

“Great. Then…meet me at the parking lot at 7?” He asked.

“I’m with a friend. I can’t leave her alone”, you said biting your lip.

“Oh…eh… I can tell Scar to come with us so you can bring your friend”, he said.

“Ok, it’s settled then”, you said with a big smile.

“Good…see you later then”

He moved a bit closer and kissed your cheek softly. Damn, he smelled so good. Then he looked at you for a few more moments before walking away. Probably he had another interview but you didn’t care anymore. You had a date with Chris fucking Evans and you just couldn’t wait to tell your best friend.

Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman Payday Was Criminally Low
The Wonder Woman star's compensation for saving the DCEU is surprisingly meager compared to her Batman v Superman co-stars.

Not all that surprising but still disheartening

EDIT:: This article was later to be proven false. Gal Gadot received similar pay to other first time superheroes such as Chris Evans (300,000 for CATFA), RDJ (500,000 ? for IM), and Chris Hemsworth (150,000 for Thor). I didn’t see Cavill’s numbers but it was assured that he didn’t make millions for Man of Steel on the front end

The Other Odinson- Part Three

Hello! Okay I know this took forever, but a lot of things were done :) This is the revised version of TOO 3 and I must say I’m happy with the way it is now. It’s fixed now and much better than how it was the first time. Now, as I said, the old version has been deleted. I changed the ending so that it wasn’t such a big time lap, so, everything fits! This got so out of hand, it’s like super long for some reason.

Enjoy~

Previous parts-  Part 1 Part 2

It’s been two weeks to the night in the garden, two weeks since Loki had kissed Y/n. Two weeks, and Loki and Y/n had told no one about their little affair. Y/n couldn’t help but feel horrible, while she is with Loki, Thor is none the wiser and she carries on like nothing is going on. It had been eating away at her conscience since the kiss. 

How is she to tell Thor? 


And to make it much more worse, their wedding day is drawing ever nearer.
Y/n sat in the library then, head resting on her arms. Loki sat across from her, watching her with creased brows, sensing the girl’s distress. “Y/n.”
She sighs and looks up at him through her lashes, he gently takes her hand. Loki is not usually one to feel remorse, especially when it come to his father’s champion Thor. But he could see that it was destroying Y/n everyday to carry on without letting him know, and he knows what she feels. The fear of disappointing her father, her people, Asgard.

The All-father.

They know what they are doing is wrong, and it’s like walking on broken glass from one end to the next. But Thor must know, because no secret stays hidden for long. Eventually, someone cracks under pressure and caves. It will not be easy, Loki knows, Odin would not take easily to scandal in his own house.
“I know, I just need to find the right moment… ”

I can’t take this!

If Y/n gets dragged off to be fitted for another dress, by the name of Odin, she’ll lose it. Loki had found the situation hilarious to an extent. With Y/n being pulled away every five minutes.
Two days of none stop wedding preparations, and the bloody thing is two months away!
The girl has been trying her best to tell Thor, and every time she thinks she has the perfect moment, something or the other comes up. She had considered just blurting it out, but that would not pass off okay.
Today, Y/n was walking quietly through the halls of the palace. Finally getting a moments breath, the days are flying by too quickly for Y/n to grasp. But she had to make it right, before she slips into a guilt driven insanity. She was hoping to catch a glimpse of the blond Prince, hoping that she’d find her wits and tell him, and then face the trouble that is surely to come afterwards.
“Thor!” she calls when she finally saw him, walking down the stairs to the entrance to the Palace. Probably to go off on a hunt, as Y/n makes her way down the staircase, she feels her heart race. She wonders if she would actually do it, tell him about what she and his brother had been up to for the past two weeks.

Think this through!

It must be done.

Her palms begin to sweat, Thor stops at the large doors, turning to look at her, a smile on his face. Always a smile. She could just imagine how quickly that smile would falter and fade away, replaced with nothing but hurt and anger and betrayal. Y/n takes a breath, stopping in front of him, she puts on her best fake smile, “Return safely, okay?”
If possible, Thor’s smile got bigger, “Of course My Lady,”
Y/n mentally kicks herself as he turn away from her and takes his leave. Very nice, Y/n. There went your moment. She never felt more guilt ridden, she feels worst than that time when she was little and she broke a special vase of her mother’s. Her mother had already passed then, but the vase had meant a lot to her father, he was very angry at first, because she didn’t own up to her mistake. But he told her when she does something wrong, she should say something, for it will safe her a lot of trouble.
                       


An hour and a half later, Loki was still in the library, enjoying his momentary solitude. Momentary, because Thor came in.
Loki thought it strange, the last time Thor stepped foot in this library was when they were children, doing their studies. And that was forever ago.
“Is it raining inside?” Loki questions Thor as he takes the seat Y/n had occupied, a wistful look on his face. Thor sends him a curious glance, “No, actually.”
Loki rolls his eyes, as it seems, Thor was still unable to read between the lines. “It’s been an age, since you’ve been here.” Loki states, sitting down, keeping his eyes in his book. He hears Thor’s chuckle and he looks up, “I thought you could use the company,”
Loki raises an eyebrow at this, it’s not that he doesn’t mind spending time with his brother, just not at this moment. Surely he has better things to do.
“Well, just be quiet.”
The silence lasted a small while, with Loki trying to read and Thor gazing out the nearest window. As soon as he saw his brother, Loki’s attitude shifted from happy to irritated. It was easy to forget, whilst everything was going on around him, while being with Y/n, it was easy to forget that she was to marry Thor.
Loki sighs through his nose, and Thor looks at him, “So, what do you think of Y/n?” Thor asks, grinning.

So that’s why he’s so jovial.

No, Loki does not want to have this conversation. No no no–

“You have been spending a lot of time with her, so I assume you should have a good impression of her by now,” Thor leans forward, propping his elbows on the table. Loki looks back to his book, hoping Thor would disappear. He doesn’t want to open his mouth, just in case he says something that somehow gives them away.
“She’s good company, not as annoying as you are,” Loki says honestly, looking up from his book in time to see his brother crack a smile.

“You know, I honestly think she’s the one, that she’s right for Asgard.”

Loki fakes a smile before going back to reading.

                    


“Akaela, may I speak to you about something?”
Akaela, who had returned without her father, was sitting on Y/n’s bed. She turns to look at her, and nods. Y/n had decided, that perhaps if she told Akaela, at least a small but of the weight would lift from her conscience. “Yes of course, Princess.”
“I–um..”
Akaela’s silver eyes never left Y/n’s as the girl stutters through her words. Y/n sighs, running her hand through her hair, somewhat regretting her decision to talk to the handmaiden. Akaela puts her hand on Y/n’s knee, “Y/n.” she raises her dark eyebrows, “It’s Alright,”
“No it isn’t!” Y/n suddenly cries, burying her face in her hands, “I’m hurting someone Akaela, none of this is in any way Alright.” Y/n looks up, her cheeks tear stained, and in a matter of time, she found herself telling the woman everything. About what happened two weeks ago, before the kiss, falling for Loki, kissing him. Not telling Thor, but wanting to.
“I don’t know what to do,” Y/n says, taking a breath, her e/c eyes on her hands in her lap. Akaela, who had been listening intently to the girl’s story, sighs. “And, what is Loki’s take on this predicament?”
“He wants me to tell Thor, and I am willing, but….I…..don’t know how.”
All in all, Akaela seemed too calm about the situation, but Y/n could feel her concern. Akaela squeezes her hand, causing Y/n to look up  at her. “Perhaps, if you would take my advice into account?”
Y/n nods silently, in truth, she does feel a tad bit better about it. “You should talk to them, the both of them. Get Thor and Loki in the same place and talk.”
                       


Thor had noticed, once too many times in the past few days.
At first, he elected to just ignore that nagging feeling that sprung up in the back of his mind.
Because, that could not be it.
The subtle change in her attitude towards him, she is around him less. She is quick to get away from any subject regarding their engagement. He found it strange. He was certain that she was getting used to her time in Asgard and being around him, becoming his wife. He couldn’t help but let the snake of doubt wrap around his mind and hold tight.
He noticed too, Loki isn’t around as much as he used to be as well. Both of them are always missing at the same time, and it’s not his place to assume, but it is his business. And Thor couldn’t help but only wonder.
                       


“I think you should,” Loki says quietly, watching Y/n from the corner of his eye as they walk side by side down a deserted hall. Y/n had filled him in on her conversation with Akaela, and he had agreed that it may be the best thing for her to do. Y/n smiles to herself as Loki snakes a hand around her waist, “Soon my Dear,” he chuckles, turning her to face him, “We will be able to do this without hiding,” his lips capture hers in a gentle kiss.

Now, if the two of them were not too busy caught up in each other, they would have noticed the girl who was hiding around the bend of the next hallway. She let out a small gasp, if she didn’t see it with her own eyes, she never would have believed it. She tip toed away, praying to the Norn’s that they didn’t hear her. Someone has to know, Odin must know.
When she got to the throne room, the guards were more than reluctant to let her pass, but she said she had an important message for the All father.
Odin was sitting on his throne, looking down his nose at her.
“All Father,” the girl says, bowing in greeting, “I have seen something, a scandal in your house.”
He raises an eyebrow, waving his hand for her to continue. “Your son, Loki. And Thor’s betrothed”
             
                          


It was late at night when Y/n was rudely awoken from her sleep by a pounding on her door. A guard, adorned in his normal golden armor. “Princess, the All Father wishes to see you.” he says shortly.
The All Father? Surely not at this hour.
“Are you certain?” Y/n asks, worry creasing her brow. The guard nods silently, walking down the hall, leaving her no choice but to follow.
Why would the All Father want to see her? And why now? Y/n could feel dread sinking into every corner of her mind. Something was wrong and she could just feel it. The feeling made her want to turn around and bolt in the other direction, lock herself away and hide forever.  
When they got to the large gold double doors, the guard stops her before knocking. Odin’s loud voice booms for them to enter, and it was then and there, Y/n knew she was in serious trouble. The anger that resonated from the King’s voice was clear.
The guard gives her a small nod and a look of pity she could not ignore. If anyone else knew about what she did, she be in hotter waters.
He pushes the door open and let her go in. The first thing she saw was her father. He was standing next to the door when it shut close behind her, Thor, was there as well, eyes trained on his father. So was Loki, Akaela and the Queen Frigga. And the petite blonde handmaiden, Freya. Upon seeing her, Y/n immediately knew, she had dealings with this. It’s not like Y/n didn’t see it coming, she did, she just didn’t expect it to be her. Just when she thought the girl’s jealousy meant nothing at all.
She held a small smug look on her face, looking directly at Y/n. Everyone was more than likely confused, Y/n didn’t even know that her father had returned to Asgard. He wasn’t due to return for another two days, but I suppose, word travels fast when you’re having an affair. Out of everyone she could disappoint, her father was on the top of that list. Ever since she was little, she never wanted to be the light of shame on her family, she never wanted to disappoint her Mother and Father. But yet, here she was.
The tension around them lay thick, suffocating them. How can silence be so loud? Screaming in Y/n ears, it was too quiet, you could hear a feather drop if it fell too heavy.
It was Thor, who broke the silence first, walking forward, meeting Odin’s icy stare. “Father, what is the meaning of this?”
Odin raises his hand, silencing the Prince, his blue eye looking at each of them, lingering Y/n, more than she’d like. “I do not take easily to scandal in my own house.” He says, his voice ricocheting around the large room.
Y/n feels her stomach sink, and even from where she stood she could see the muscle in Loki’s jaw tick, his fist clenching at his side. “What scandal do you speak of Odin?” Y/n’s father asks, walking past her.

Akaela sends a wary glance Y/n’s way, she, looking a lot less confused than everyone else, having already known about the matter. Y/n saw this coming, she knew eventually it would come to this if she didn’t talk quickly. Odin calls Freya forward, the girl hangs her head, and Y/n could sense just a slimmer of guilt. But she knew she didn’t really feel that way, Y/n knew all too well, about how the girl felt towards Loki. And she hopes she knows, that in doing this, she isn’t going to get any closer to him, or his affections.
“As I have been told.” Odin begins, “have your brother informed you of his doings for the past ten days, Thor?” he says, directing his cold gaze to his eldest son.
The Prince in question furrows his eyebrows, looking back at his younger Brother before turning to look at Odin again. “I don’t understand,”
When he looks back again, Y/n stood next to Loki and took his hand in hers. Thor looks between the two of them, realization creasing his brows, “No…” he mutters, shaking his head. “Y/n… I thought..”
The sadness in his eyes was enough to break her, the very same sadness that she imagined would be there, if she had told him. But only ten times worse, now that he had to find out this way. Seeing him like that brings all the guilt rushing back at Y/n like a pack of wild dogs. Loki gives her hand a squeeze, and Y/n hoped that it was to tell her that everything was going to be okay, and not that it only gets worse from here. Because how can this possibly get worse?

“I’m sorry,” The breath Y/n took then wasn’t enough to calm her nerves. Her fear was reaching for the ceiling, her heart beating out a samba. She had never wanted it to get to this, she took too long and this just snuck up on her like a predator on its prey.

Frigga looked quite startled at the news, and once again, the room was plunged into silence. Y/n could feel everyone’s eyes on her, especially the burn of her father’s. She couldn’t bare to look at Thor, afraid that she’s break down in tears right there and then, with the guilt that was threatening to swallow her whole.
“Y/n.” her father calls, slowly turning around to face her fully, taking a step forward. “Why would you do this? Embarrass me like this. My daughter, a common wench?”
Y/n stood her ground, knowing her father expected her to tell him this was nothing but a little game. But no, she will not falter. She’s not going to let him or anyone for that matter, take this away from her.

“Father–”

“Mind your mouth.” Loki seethes from next to her, cutting of her words, green eyes narrowing at her Father, boring holes into his skull. Y/n’s father turns to look at Loki, “You. What sort of trickery is this? What did you do to her?”

“It is no trick.” Y/n says, “It is my choice.”

“You never had a choice.”

Odin looked pretty contented in sitting and looking on, watching matters unfold. Y/n shakes her head, scoffing to herself. She had always known, her father was a bit of a selfish man, but not to this extent. She knows her father wants what is best for her, and her Kingdom. “I never had a choice? You never gave me a choice!”
“Have you not stop to think for one second what I might want?! I did not want this marriage, I never did! But I found something, and I won’t let you take it away from me.”
Alistair’s eyes darkened, his pupils blown wide by anger. Y/n had never seen her father more angry, his face reddening, fists clenching at his sides. His aura was suffocating, like steel fingers gripping tightly around her throat, holding tightly with no intention of letting go. He takes a step forward, and suddenly Y/n feels the sharp crack of his palm against her cheek.
Startled, her eyes brimming with tears, she looks up at him, but he was blocked out. Loki was in front of her in an instant, placing his cool hand against her aching cheek. Blinking back her tears, she willed herself not to cry, and instead she looks into his emerald irises, hoping to calm herself further, but she found nothing but rage there. “Loki..” Y/n wraps her fingers around his wrist, holding him to her, “don’t.”
Her father had turned his back to them, his anger now directed at her handmaiden, “Akaela, how long have you known of this?”
He has to ask her, he knew that Y/n and the maid were close. He knew if she had told anyone, it’d be her. “No more than a few days, Majesty.” the girl answers honestly, her lips pulled into a thin line as she gave Y/n’s father an equally hard stare. “And you sort not to inform anyone of your findings, girl?” Odin speaks, causing the two to break eye contact as Akaela turns to face him.
“With all due respect, All-Father, It was not my place. I left it entirely up to Y/n to speak when she was ready to do so. My job is to look after her, not gossip.” Akaela says calmly, sneaking a dark glance at Freya. Alistair flexes his fingers at his side, a motion Y/n did not fail to miss, and she knew if she didn’t stop this, Akaela would be subjected to his wrath, too. Y/n pulls away from Loki, stepping around his taller frame.
“Father, please.”
At the sound of her voice, her father moved faster than she thought possible, swirling around to face her. Raising a hand to strike her again, only to be stopped by Loki grabbing his hand. “Don’t you lay a hand on her.” He growls out, pushing his hand away roughly.
How dare you!”
“Loki!” Thor’s voice suddenly rings out, he was walking towards them, his golden brows furrowed in anger. “Why?”

Ah, the golden question yet again.

“Why what?” it was the only thing Loki got to ask before he was roughly jacked up by his brother. Thor’s hands gripped tightly to the collar of Loki’s tunic, “You know what!”
Loki’s eyes flicker to Y/n, realization dawning his features. “I see. It confuses you doesn’t it? That for once someone picks me over you?”
Loki smiles, taunting his brother, “You knew how I felt. You knew–and you did this.”

“She never wanted you Thor, when will you see that?”

In that moment, Y/n felt Thor’s anger flare, in the next, Thor’s fist collides with Loki’s jaw. “Enough! Stop this, both of you!” Y/n shouts, moving to try and pull the brothers apart. Putting a firm grip on Loki’s arm she pulls him away from Thor.
“So. Everything was a lie?” Thor asks, his sad eyes trained on Y/n’s.  "No, not everything. I care for you I honestly do, just… not in the way you’d like.“
Thor looks between her and Loki,he’s angry, that much is true, but he couldn’t help but be glad for Loki. To see him happy, he actually found someone, as backwards as the methods were. Thor knows, they truly love each other.
With a broken sigh, Thor turns to look at his father,  "Father…If you would allow me to speak?” Odin, who had been quiet throughout this whole ordeal, nods, watching his son carefully.
“You can still unite the kingdoms, Loki is a Prince, first born or no.”
Y/n and Loki look to each other with hopeful smiles.
“If you would give them your blessing,”
Frigga looks to the All-Father, placing a gentle hand on his arm, “Odin,”
“Very Well,”
       
                    


“Y/n, stop fidgeting, it will hurt if this pricks you,”

“I have all rights to be nervous, Akaela. I’m getting married.” Y/n says, twiddling her fingers in her lap as Akaela put a gold flower shaped hair pin in her h/c hair.
The handmaiden chuckles while pinning up loose strands of the girl’s hair in a braid. “You’ll be fine,”
No more than twenty minutes later, Y/n stood outside large gold door with her entire future behind it. She takes a breath, gripping tightly onto the sleeve of her forest green dress. Y/n couldn’t help but feel nervous, she is to walk down the aisle in front of hundreds of people. The palace doors were opened today, because every one was invited to witness the bonding.
“Nervous, My dear?” Y/n turns her head, smiling slightly as her father approached her. “Just a little,”
Since the ordeal three weeks ago, Y/n and her father hadn’t spoken to each other. Both of them too stubborn to apologize or at least talk to one another. Y/n assumes he feels guilty about the way he reacted to the news of her and Loki being together and thought it was best for him to cool down on his own.
“You shouldn’t be,” her father smiles putting out his arm for her to take. Y/n loops her arm with his, “You look so much like your mother,” Y/n smiles, if only she was here to see this. Her father sighs, causing Y/n to look up at him, “Honestly, I had envisioned this differently.” he says, looking down at her, “But your happiness means more to me. And on that note, the things I said to you, I raised my hand against you and for that, I apologize.”

“It’s Alright, you were angry,”

“That is no excuse,”

A guard clears his throat, drawing Y/n and her father’s attention to him. He is going to open the doors, Y/n realizes, her heart hammers in her chest, unconsciously, her hand tightens the grip on her father’s arm. Causing the man to chuckle, “Calm down, Love,”
The golden doors were pushed open, putting Y/n under spotlight for everyone to see. Y/n wouldn’t have moved if her father hadn’t before her. She could feel everyone’s excitement, their apprehension. It was so much, she could barely decipher her own feelings. But she holds her head up anyway, because at the end of the aisle stood Loki. The man she loves. 

Despite the way things went, Y/n was so glad she was reluctant to come to Asgard to meet the man she was supposed to wed. Because if she didn’t, things would have probably turned out differently. She would have found a way to delay the meeting, then having time to make peace with her father’s decision. She would have been walking down the aisle to meet Thor instead of Loki.
But even so, Y/n know hers and Loki’s meeting was not by chance. Even if she wasn’t so reluctant, she would have met the other Odinson the same way and fallen for him just the same.
Fate cannot be changed.

Taika Waititi on shaking up Thor and being a Hollywood outsider: 'They take this stuff so seriously'
The Hunt for the Wilderpeople director on joining the Marvel universe, hating biopics and his early script for Moana
By Elle Hunt

When asked what fans can expect from the latest instalment of Thor, director Taika Waititi somewhat unhelpfully says it will be “Taika-esque”.

Asked if he could perhaps describe it in literally any other way, he laughs. “I can’t! There’s no way!”

As far as whetting the appetites of Marvel fanatics goes, it’s a little counterproductive. Thor: Ragnarok will be watched by many more people who are familiar with the franchise than those who know Waititi’s work – but this may be the film that makes the New Zealand director a household name.

The big-budget Thor is a far cry from the Flight of the Conchords, of which Waititi wrote and directed a few episodes, and from What We Do In The Shadows, the 2014 vampire mockumentary he made with Jemaine Clement. And it’s almost the antithesis of Hunt for the Wilderpeople: the family friendly little-Kiwi-film-that-could, which was a surprise hit at box offices around the world last year.

But while the types of projects may differ wildly, his treatment of them – the bit that makes them “Taika-esque” – doesn’t. Even Waititi’s government-funded anti-drug-driving campaign, Tinnyvision – made in collaboration with Snapchat in 2014 – has the same warm, sly humour of his features.

And yet, after 41 years’ experience of being “Taika-esque” himself, he still struggles to describe it.

“If someone asked, ‘What are your films like?’, the best I can come up with is that they’re, like, a fine balance between comedy and drama. And they deal mainly with the clumsiness of humanity.”

Well, that’s definitely true of Tinnyvision.

As evidenced by his decision to set Ragnarok outside the Marvel universe – a ballsy move, given the size of the fandom and budget in question – Waititi is one to do things his own way. And it’s paying off.

I Am Writing Smut

Hello lovelies!

I know I said the other post would be the last one I would annoy you with but this is a serious problem that only YOU can help me fix

So as the headline suggests; I am writing smut.

Nothing new there, but I’m writing a ‘friends with benefits’ kind of story which means there will be a lot, and I mean a lot, of smut.

Don’t get me wrong, there will be a plot too. Obviously. But this story will feature the most amount of smut I have put into a story. (so far at least) 

But because this story didn’t come to me with a fixed celebrity in mind, I thought I would let you guys do the honours. Who would you like to star in this porno that is being thinly veiled as a fanfiction.

It can be anyone you like. It could be about a celebrity I’ve already written for like Kit Harington, Oscar Isaac or Richard Madden.

Or it could be about someone I have been promising to write a fic about, like Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman or Theo James.

It could even be about someone you like that I have not previously mentioned, like Tom Hiddleston, Sebastian Stan, Chris Hemsworth… wait, that is too many Marvel people. I don’t want to seem biased so I will suggest some others.

Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa, Joe Manganiello… wait, too much DC. Damn. Ok, third time is the charm.

Jason Statham, Michael Fassbender, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Bradley JAmes, Luke Evans… wait, they are all British. I need to think of some American’s to keep things fair.

Chris Evans, Chris Pine, Evan Peters, one of the Franco brothers, Charlie Hunnam… wait, I think he might be British.

In fact, the evidence suggests that I like my men how I like my tea: hot and british…

Anyway, send me an ask telling me who you would like the fic to be written about. It can be any of the names mentioned above, or anyone that pops into your mind. Let me know by dropping an ask, commenting on this post, or like/commenting on any of the asks I get and I’ll tally the votes.

Love you all my little lovelies,

–Tea Enthusiast

Hurricane Warning - Chapter Seven

previous

Chris Evans stared blearily into the fridge, hoping that breakfast would miraculously appear. Unfortunately, it didn’t. His phone rang, and he scratched himself through his boxers as he looked for where he had left it last night. He found it on the kitchen counter. He really should have plugged it in, but considering the pile of clothes, both his and Sutton’s, that were on the floor next to the kitchen counter where his phone resided, forgetting to plug his phone in was understandable. He was too busy plugging something else in. That’s right. He laughed like a frat boy and high fived himself before picking up his phone.

Why was Pine calling him? He thumbed it on. “Wasn’t expecting to hear from you this morning.”

“Did Dani get home okay?”

That startled him into a bit more alertness. “Wait a minute. You didn’t bring her home yourself?” He had thought Pine was a good guy, but what kind of asshole didn’t personally escort his date home?

Jeff Goldblum Calls His 'Jurassic World 2' Character ‘a Saucy, Sassy Man’
Plus: More on his ‘National Geographic Explorer’ episodes and ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

EW: During your interview with Sam, you guys talk about superhero movies and his role in Iron Man 2. What was it like for you to enter that world yourself for the first time with Thor: Ragnarok?

Jeff Goldblum: I enjoyed it. I didn’t have scenes with Cate Blanchett, but she was in The Life Aquatic, of course, so we’d been in touch, and I’ve seen her since. I just adore her, so it was great to be in another movie with her, even just by association. The other Hemsworth brother, that now makes two for me, and he couldn’t have been sweeter or more down-to-earth, like the whole family. What I particularly loved is the director, Taika Waititi. He really got me involved in this because I’m a fan of his, from Flight of the Conchords and all his movies, not only Hunt for the Wilderpeople and Boy but especially What We Do In the Shadows. When we first talked, he said, “I want you to do your particular version of this character without being comic-y or grandiloquent. I think you should do something that’s in your creative family tree. And also improvise.” He was very interested in improvisation. We came to all those scenes and riffed enjoyably for the time we had. I don’t know what’s gonna come out in the mix because we gave him a whole bunch of different choices, I’ll tell you that. He’s great. Taika Waititi gets 10 Goldblums out of a possible 10 Goldblums.

Thoughts on Life and Why I do not want mine to end

So it’s six AM and I haven’t slept and I feel like absolute garbage because so much crap has hit the fan in the last week or so and there is so much negativity on the internt and I have taken a lot of ADHD meds and I think I’m going to fail one or more finals today, so I need a masterpost of reasons that I want to continue living.

He really got me involved in this because I’m a fan of his, from Flight of the Conchords and all his movies, not only Hunt for the Wilderpeople and Boy but especially What We Do In the Shadows. When we first talked, he said, “I want you to do your particular version of this character without being comic-y or grandiloquent. I think you should do something that’s in your creative family tree. And also improvise.” He was very interested in improvisation. We came to all those scenes and riffed enjoyably for the time we had. I don’t know what’s gonna come out in the mix because we gave him a whole bunch of different choices, I’ll tell you that. He’s great. Taika Waititi gets 10 Goldblums out of a possible 10 Goldblums.

What's Good Miley?

Oh man, someone reminded me of some bullshit I had repressed because I was too busy being pissed about the healthcare law.

These stories about Mikey Cyrus going clean and sober; I’m going to leave the commentary about the racial aspects of it to other people whose lane it actually is. But, OMG, the way the coverage has treated her and her “recovery” and the way she talks about it makes me want to punch everyone.

A (incomplete probably) list of my issue:

(1) They’re talking about her stopping smoking weed as though she was shooting up heroin literally on the Judge’s Chair on The Voice. Like, obviously I don’t know the full extent of her drinking problem or how much weed she was smoking, but she was clearly incredibly high functioning. Can we not talk about this like Lindsay Lohan or Lamar Odom sobering up and going clean (two names I have picked randomly out of my memories of “celebrities who have had dramatic issues with drugs, alcohol, and mental health in recent years”)?

(2) Despite the fact that the news stories are covering it as though she was snorting coke off Blake Sheldon’s ass on national television, the way Miley talks about it seems so freaking dismissive of the experiences of people actually struggling with addiction. Her quotes were like “it’s been so fucking easy actually; I love feeling clear headed for the first time in forever” and “I just feel so much more in touch with myself spiritually,” and so on and so forth. Like, I’m absolutely fine with her saying “hey so I decided to stop smoking weed because it wasn’t making me feel good anymore” but don’t try to get attention both on the one hand for going clean and sober but then on the other hand talk about it like it is this cake-walk that is just so easy for you because you’re in such a better place now (does the better place involve a Hemsworth dick? Because, let’s be honest, the better place involves a Hemsworth dick.)

(3) When she gave the big interview that came out about this, she told them she had been clean and sober for THREE fucking WEEKS. Again, bully for you, but it all just feels so performative. Frankly, just as her trip to the high-side also always felt pretty performative, this recapturing of her sweet and innocent (and white, LBR) feels incredibly performative too.

(4) The three weeks thing also bugs me because it goes against all common sense for good public relations strategy if you are *actually* an addict in recovery. Generally, celebrities in recovery are more like pregnant women, you wait as long as possible to make any announcements about it (if you make any at all) because the risk of relapse is real and once TMZ gets wind that a celebrity is an addict or in recovery, their goal in life will be catching you when you relapse. Because they are assholes. Paparazzi will not only stalk the shit out of you and harass you, they may very well try to stress you enough or trick you into relapse so they can get the “money” shot. And the public will eat it up.

Honestly, the whole thing feels like she gave an interview and got the cover of a magazine (one I’ve never heard of, but still) and got breathless articles on Buzzfeed and shit like that for announcing that she gave up caffeine for Lent or something.

All of this should be read with the understanding that I absolutely acknowledge that alcoholism is a serious disease and that, while I think “addiction” to pot is less of a thing, I absolutely think there are people who abuse it. I don’t know if Miley is one of those people, but every one of my bullshit detectors is going off with this. Because I just cannot imagine a publicist recommending to someone with a serious addiction problem that they handle it this way. And nothing in Miley’s career suggests that she would just go off and do this on her own; her career has always been well managed and strategic (even when it seemed a bit more like “strategery” rather than actual strategy, like when she humped a creepy, older, married man on national television.)

Anyway, so there’s a slim chance that this is just Miley being Miley but I find it much more likely that she has decided she wants to shed the weird mixture of flower-power wild-child white girl who thinks she’s down with black people because she twerked once and is doing so by performing the “I’m going clean and sober” act so people will be just.so.relieved that little sweet Miley has been saved from the big bad world and now they can listen to her cover of Jolene without having to feel like they are associating themselves with “those sorts of behaviors.”

And I don’t quite know where my strong feelings on this come from, but as a chronic pain patient who is constantly treated like an addict because of the medication I need and a human being worried about the opioid crisis, this kind of blasé and almost condescending approach to “recovery” kind of offends me. … Or apparently really offends me, considering how long this post has gotten.
