time to publish

5

The Time 100 Gala was last night and I am not entirely sure what it is but I assume it has to do with a list of 100 people Time will publish or has published.  100 People who what is the question.  Maybe most influential?  Maybe the 100 people most likely to get your to buy a magazine?  Boy, that’s would be a profitable list I bet.  I dunno, I do not and have not ever been a Time reader because once, long ago when studying political philosophy I was trying to figure out what publications to regularly read (because this was before the internet and you had to limit yourself in such ways) and my professor said Time was “a small step above a picture book.  It’s fully of shiny things to distract idiots,” and it’s impossible for me to not get that vibe now.  I mean, I do consider list making the lowest form of journalism).  But reader or not and whatever their list is I can’t take too much issue with it cause their Gala was jam packed with people who I was happy to see there.  Demi Lovato won though by being gorgeous and attractive and also wearing two different things because she performed.  I guess that’s like cheating but I don’t care.  Cheat to win I always say.  Every time I post Demi Lovato I am taken with just how striking she is and has become.  Not everyone matures into their beauty and it is the special, lucky person who becomes more beautiful as she ages.  Demi Lovato seems to be one of those people.  And it certainly makes sense.  I mean, recovery is a lot of work but it’s a fuck ton better for your health than what came before.  Of course, I am reminded sometimes by a long time friend that when forced to say which Disney star I found most attractive back in… whenever that was that Demi Lovato was a Diseny star, I said her hands down.  But I would point out saying, “If you put a gun to my head” is hardly high praise, where as now, as a woman fully into adulthood and maturity I find her to be remarkably attractive.  I dunno, I am rambling, my basic point is if you get your news from Time that’s ok, it’s better than getting it from your friends Facebook feeds but really, try to branch out.  There is still excellent journalism out there if you want it.  Today I want to fuck Demi Lovato.

Prompt # 142

“Well that was overkill.”

“No. That was style. Something you clearly lack.”

I have recently become utterly smitten with the Society of Gentlemen book series by KJ Charles. The book covers are so disappointing and bland and do not do these characters justice AT ALL so I needed to draw the boys myself.


If you like Regency-era stories about gentlemen who like other gentlemen then you should check this series out; it’s got some lovely romance and friendships and supporting-each-other-through-hardship and era politics and scandal and drama and pining.  Not to mention bi and demi and trans characters, and none of the conflicts revolve around anyone being ashamed of their sexuality. Oh, and they all have HAPPY ENDINGS! Also people actually communicate and it avoids so many stupid misunderstandings that are so common in love stories. 

(Basically everything I’ve ever wanted in historical romance and more) 

You’ve been listening to me complain about it all week, now at long last, here it is for your hopeful enjoyment!

IN CELEBRATION OF 5K+ NOTES ON MY GHOST!LAURENS POST AND TO SAY THANKS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT AND AMAZING FEEDBACK <3

You want Jeremy vid recs?  *pushes glasses up on nose* let me see what I can do for you (note: this is in no way a comprehensive list but got kinda long because I freaking LOVE Jeremy and his dynamic with basically everybody, also this list is immensely long sorry):

  • LP Dead by Daylight series:  Watch as Jeremy progresses to become the best player in the game.  Also just an immensely entertaining game to watch tbh.
  • LP-8 man Gang Beasts and LP Gang Beasts with Kinda Funny:  Ray is to CoD as Jeremy is to Gang Beasts
  • LP Gmod Trouble in Terrorist Town pt 3: the AH guys have little to no patience in identifying the terrorist, resulting in hilarity
  • LP Gmod Murder series:  AH + a game of trust = a game of betrayal
  • LP Gmod obj hunt series:  a combination of Jeremy being both incredibly good at this game and incredibly entertaining
  • LP trivial pursuit pt 8: typical amount of hilarity/cringe at AH’s general (lack of) knowledge, specifically recommended for the victory chant at the end 
  • LP Mario Party 8 series with Jeremy in it, starting at I think King Boo’s Haunted Hideaway: Ryan + lads + nintendo is always a winning combination
  • LP Speedrunners Part 3: the lunch money saga 
  • LP Mean Greens: s/o to Team Markiplier
  • LP Fibbage series w/ Jeremy, starting w/ Fibbage 2: Jeremy’s improvisational humor becomes one of his greatest assets
  • LP Drawful 2, 2 pt 2, & with Funhaus: great showcase of Jeremy’s Artistic Abilities 
  • LP Bidiots: features possibly Geoff’s most stupid moment ever, also Prickasso
  • VR Job Simulator: the first of the
  • VR series and a great Jeremy/Ryan/Gavin combo video
  • VR Gorn: Jeremy essentially evolves into Mad King Ryan Sports Friends: Poleriders Tournament:  less for the videos and more for the incredibly underrated Jeremy/Michael team aka team “Short Temper"
  • GTA V offense defense series: an immensely entertaining game type, and features many of team Little Britain’s greatest hits
  • GTA V Snipers vs Stunters series: essentially turns into a game of Jeremy vs Jack
  • GTA V Slasher & Slasher 2:  another immensely entertaining game type to watch
  • GTA V Yacht Party: a fantastic Geoff-less “fuck around” lp where the others basically screw around with Geoff’s money/things
  • Los Santos in Minecraft: Jeremy’s antics cause him to nearly get kicked from the server
  • GTA V Cloud Down: mainly for the last 10 minutes with Trevor’s magnificent editing Minecraft 198:  Geoff and Gavin put Jeremy On the Spot and give him control of the letsplay with zero direction
  • Minecraft 199: less the whole video and more 5:30 minutes in, Jeremy and Gav converse about Jer’s url puns, and Jeremy creates his best url pun of all time. 
  • Minecraft 216: Gavin costs Jeremy the victory by mistaking him for “Big Johny 64”
  • Minecraft 236: “Did you know there’s mansions in minecraft?”  and the Compass Argument 
  • PS: I have no idea what vids you have or haven’t seen so sorry if this list contains a bunch you have
  • PPS: also every live AH antics video featuring Jeremy
  • PPPS: also every video of On the Spot with Jeremy especially 22, 46, 71, and 80 

I watched Beauty and the Beast yesterday and I’ve been thinking. There are lesbian reimaginings here in tumblr and there are probably plenty of mlm versions, which is great. But the enchantress said that the beast had to learn how to love and to be loved in return in order to break the spell. So what if it wasn’t romantic love?

Imagine a ten-year-old girl, who is determined to flee from her abusive parents. She gets on her horse with all the food she could pack and leaves her home. She wants to go to another town, live an adventure or maybe just find a safe place to live. But she gets lost in the woods and ends up finding the beast’s castle. Tired and hungry, she decides to enter.

The servants are delighted to see another person, even if she’s too young to break the curse. At first, she’s scared of them but quickly starts to like them. They make her laugh and sing to her. She’s amazed when be our guest happens. The beast wants her to leave, thinking that he will frighten her and that he probably shouldn’t be around humans anyway, especially children. He tells her that she should go home to her family. She says no, she left her cruel parents behind. She’s very afraid of him but she won’t return. Reluctantly, he lets her stay.

She explores the castle, except the west wing, rides her horse around the castle and plays with the servants. Chip is happy to have someone his age to hang out with. Shenanigans ensue. She loses her fear of the beast after he saves her from wolves and they start spending time together. He’s kind of funny and not really scary-looking, only a little bit, she thinks. He plays with her in the snow and reads her books out loud. Like him, she also likes the ones with swordfights. She asks him to teach her to read and he does, after warning her that he never taught anyone. She doesn’t mind.

Time passes and she’s happy but realizes that the rest of the habitants of the castle are sad. They try to hide it from her and they worry about what would happen to the girl when the permanent curse takes place. But they don’t want to burden her with it. One day, wanting to cheer up the beast and thinking of the happy families in the books, she hugs him and tells him she loves him. Suddenly there’s a great light and the beast and all the servants are human again. Somewhere in the village, the beggar woman smiles.

for @timepetalsprompts ‘bed sharing’ trope. originally had a cracky interlude with donna, but sort of got too long (it still exists somewhere, though). fluff. and a little bit of crack and angst. ten x rose reunion fic.

He came around slowly; blinked a couple of times and attempted to focus on the mild haze of peachy and yellowish pinks in front of him. His head throbbed dully and persistently, inducing the vague feeling of nausea, which ricocheted upwards to his dizzy head. Feeling inexplicably warm and fuzzy, he let his eyes fall closed. When he opened his mouth, what escaped was a somewhat throaty sigh.

Instantaneously, a voice came drifting.

“Doctor?”

(Oh, what a nice voice. What a nice voice.)

“Donna, d’you know.” He slurred, tongue stiff and clammy in his mouth, “You sound JUS’ like Rose.”

classyastral  asked:

what will happen in 2020? will it really be as bad as everyone in tumblr mentions it

everyone will have perfect vision

what is happening in 2020? pluto is going into aquarius i think? thats 2023

last time pluto was in aquarius balloons were invented. balloons. sounds like scary stuff. contact with aliens and UFO’s and more space exploration. uranus rules astrology and space and aliens and stuff, maybe astrology will have another giant wave of exploration in the collective, reawakened maybe

the technological singularity has been discussed as the point at which technological (artificial) intelligence exceeds human intelligence. In 2011 Time Magazine published an article “2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal.”

2045 is the year transiting Pluto will complete orbit in Aquarius

Neptune enters Aries a bit later than 2020, 2025 really, there could be civil wars again out of base ideological elusion?

the monetary system may change when Uranus enters taurus in 2018, but for the better, Uranus is humanitarian, resources (taurus) may be shared. 

ok pluto conjunct saturn?

pluto has been in cap since 2008, we are so prepared lol

molly, consider,,,, the briggs bunch when they're sick. GO!!

THANK U ASHLEY

  • Buc is the biggest baby about it like “Miles I can’t move bring me soup” and “can I have tea with honey and lemon” and “can you bring me more books I already finished these” and of course his every request is granted
  • Miles keeps on working and insists he’s fine until he falls over or someone physically hauls him to bed
  • Patricia is well aware of the irony of the situation and doesn’t want to hear about it. she just wants to take a hot bath and sit by the fire
  • Olivier is pretty good at hiding it whenever she’s sick but as soon as someone finds out she’s immediately fussed over and doted upon by everyone in the vicinity (which she secretly loves). she always recovers in record time because Efficiency is important


Lance has a little problem. He’s nice and friendly person. Too friendly. Everytime they meet a new alien, he’s ready to hug them and accept them in his little family. And that wouldn’t be a problem if they weren’t in the middle of a fucking war where everyone around you might kill you.

But Lance can’t help it. When he saw the little arusian guy he wanted to knit him a sweater, when he met Rolo and Nyma he wanted to befriend them (and he had to flirt with Nyma because how can he say no to a pretty face??) when he met Yupper he told her all his insecurities and was ready to protect her from harm.

He’s just like that. He trust too easily and sees good in everybody.

Shiro and the others end up having a long talk with him about it after Lance started trying to become friends with monsters that even the Galra feared. And really, those weren’t even pretty monsters that could trick you into freeing them (Like Nyma, for example), no. They were huge dark-creatures that screamed danger from everywhere.

“Oh come on guys, just look at them, don’t you wanna pet them?”
“Lance, dear Lord get away from that! It’s gonna eat you!”
“He’s just being nice, don’t be rude Pidge.”

Lance still didn’t see the problem with those aliens. Yes, their looks are a little bit scary, but they are in space. Everyone is different and they shouldn’t judge those guys by their looks. They all are victims from the Galra. Lance doesn’t judge his friends, they are only being wary. The last few creatures he tried to become friends with did try to eat him. But, what if they didn’t? What if they were actually good?

He’s not an idiot. He knows what he does it’s risky. It may get him killed someday, he undertands why his friends worries. But if he doesn’t make an effort to save those dark-aliens, who will? Voltron must protect everyone.

Lance keeps doing this for while and only stops when he ends up freeing a giant alien who looks a lot like Cthulhu and holy shit he undertands now why the Galra flee from the base when they heard the alarm.

He’s teammates tease him a little about the “Cthulhu accident” but they forget with time.

It’s only when they end up in a strange galaxy fighting the Galra that they remember. They were losing, and hard. The Galra had them surround them, they couldn’t escape and their lions were to damage to even try to form Voltron. They thought it was the end of them.

Then Cthulhu arrived.

It was fucking insane, the giant creature destroy all the Galra ships by itself and even help them go back to the castle. When Lance got out of Blue, he ran hug one huge beast under the astonished look of all his friends.
