various actors

before season seven aired they were showing a countdown of top game of thrones moments on tv with various actors, writers and other random celebrities giving their opinions and it really showed how viewers react differently to male and female characters.

in the scene where arya stark slits walder frey’s throat, they talk about how in game of thrones, characters who were once “good” can do “bad things” and they even go as far as labelling her actions as “psychotic”.

but then when an enraged jon snow is beating ramsay bolton to a pulp, intending to kill him, he is described only as “heroic” and “noble”. no one comes close to questioning his morality or mental state.

both arya and jon are claiming vengeance for barbaric actions taken against their family, yet the girl is a psycopath and the boy is a hero.

Reader’s guide - master list of my favourite fics and writers

So I was originally just making this for myself as a shortcut to author’s I knew I liked in different genres for when I want to read something particular, when I figured why not make this a public post so everyone can access it, right? 

All of the present links are to the blog, fic/series, or master list of a writer whose work I adore and all are marvel/avengers based. If you want me to remove you off this list or even just change the way I describe your work please message me and I will do so straight away. All descriptions are only based on my perceptions of the content there is at the time of making the post.

Like most of our fandom and like my URL, icon, blog description etc infer, I’m a slut for Bucky Barnes and this list reflects that. 

Smut City

@buckysbackpackbuckle - Masterlist - okay so this list isn’t all 100% smut but it mostly is and the smut is just so good. Oneshots and a couple short series, mostly Bucky x reader, other ventures include Peter Parker, Lance Tucker and Bucky x Steve x Reader

LAST UPDATE: 02/01/17

NOTES: 

  • When i say smut is labelled or not labelled I mean from the master list, most of the not labelled ones include warnings or labels once you click on the stories
  • I intend to update this list over time
  • Please message me if you find any links don’t work or have any other issues (eg. see top of post)
  • Anyone is so welcome to message me if you write Marvel fic and maybe would like to be added to the list I’m 100% open to that and always love reading new content!

I honestly just made this for my own reference and convenience but then thought others would possibly benefit from it too so I hope people find it useful

You know what? I’m pretty sure it has been said ad nauseam, but I’ll say it again myself: Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 should have won. Best Musical, Best Score, Best Book, all three of them.

You can just tell it’s a labor of love. The book is about a seventy-page segment of one of the longest novels of all times, War and Peace. It manages to stay faithful to Leo Tolstoy’s novel, but Dave Malloy, Rachel Chavkin, and the rest of the cast and crew have actually managed to add their own unique spark to it. The score is a mix of rock, folk, soul, jazz, electro pop, traditional Russian music, classical Broadway musical, and it ACTUALLY WORKS AND HOLDS TOGETHER PERFECTLY. The songs are catchy af and will stay in your head. The musical WAS original and innovative. The cast is diverse, it interacts with the public during the entire show, they play instruments, I mean it’s like there’s nothing they can’t do. Each person in the cast has a very unique and distinctive voice you can’t confound with another’s, and frankly, they’re all people who could have pretty solid careers as indie singers.

Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 was everything Dear Evan Hansen wasn’t.

(No, do not come and yell at me because this post showed up in the Dear Evan Hansen tags, because I will ignore you. And anyway, why would you care? Your musical won anyway.)

If Dear Evan Hansen had come out during the time Next to Normal did, then yes, it would have been interesting and innovative. And the problem is that psychological musicals like DEH, N2N and Fun Home always have pretty solid chances of winning at the Tony Awards.

The problem is that DEH brought nothing new on the table.

Next to Normal was revolutionary for its time; and I’m not the biggest fan of Fun Home, but I do agree that it was a powerful and important musical, that was its own thing and succeeded in it. Look, I’m not big on contemporary musicals in general – Hamilton and The Great Comet are an exception – but I think I’m capable of saying that, you know what? Dear Evan Hansen was just bland.

And before you lift your hand and tell me that it’s because I just can’t identify with the struggles the musical represents, I’ll stop you right there: I actually have social anxiety. Obviously, it’s not as severe as what Evan has, but still. And it might not look like it on the Internet, but I’ll tell you one thing: writing and expressing my thoughts here on Tumblr or in fanfiction is just one of the ways I use to fight against my social anxiety. I work as a cashier and talking to someone different every minute, saying “hello”, “did you find everything you needed”, “heard it was hot outside”, “have a wonderful day” is just another way.

So you know what? When I first heard of the musical, and saw it was about a guy struggling with social anxiety, I was willing to give it a chance.

And yeah, I watched it, and I thought it was just bland.

The music is just generic contemporary musical style songs that are not memorable at all, and there’s Ben Platt’s big number that’s basically there to show that he has da singing chops, I just didn’t warm up to the characters, it just didn’t work for me. The musical was missing that one little spark that could make it stand out from the others.

I’m not saying that social anxiety and bullying aren’t important issues: the problem is that the musical relied a lot on those issues, and it thought it was enough for it to be The Best. Musical. EVAR. And for some reason… it worked. 

And where the musical tried to be deep, it just ended up being pretentious.

I knew Ben Platt was going to win Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical. That dude basically had the Tony in his hand the minute he opened his mouth for the first time for DEH. But I can’t believe that Rachel Bay-Jones, as good as a performer as she is, won while people like Brittain Ashford and Amber Gray weren’t even nominated. And before you object, watch this video and this video and come back and explain to me why they didn’t even get a nomination. Heck, I’m even angry about Anastasia: they got a grand total of two nominations and they didn’t even get to perform at the Tonys.

I’m sorry, I just get the impression that Dear Evan Hansen won just because it was the season’s darling, and not necessarily the best or most innovative show. It’s honestly disappointing, especially when you think about how a show as revolutionary and as diverse as Hamilton won last year. Heck, Come From Away wasn’t as innovative as The Great Comet of 1812 was, but at least it was its own thing and it had middle-aged and older actors of various ethnicities in it, unlike DEH.

Long story short, why did Dear Evan Hansen win? Because it’s your generic white contemporary musical with a topic that’s shoved in our faces just to show how super special it is. And because of that, it’s the American Theatre Wing’s darling.

au where Jack is a recurring actor in various TV re-enactments (like in true medical shows and true crime shows and stuff) and Bitty recognizes him in all his appearances

I like it, let’s just extend it to all crime/medical shows because lol those are the ones I know about from visiting my parents. For the sake of my knowledge base, let’s have Bitty recognize him from when he’s chilling in the living room while his parents, like mine, watch Every Bad CBS Crime/Medical Show

“There he is! Last time he was a dead Canadian soldier on NCIS, now he’s dying on Chicago Med! WHAT DOES THIS NETWORK HAVE AGAINST THIS MAN.”

There’s a line that gets repeated several times in “Immigrants (We Get the Job Done),” a track off The Hamilton Mixtape — “It’s America’s ghost writers, a credit is only borrowed” — and that stuck with Tomás Whitmore. On Wednesday, shortly after the video began trending, the director behind the “Immigrants” music video talked to BuzzFeed News about the story he wanted to tell with it and its political implications.


“Within the political climate and all the xenophobia that’s persisting within the conversation, it felt like a really unique opportunity to give a voice to the immigrant narrative, and to shine a spotlight on, as the song says, ‘America’s ghost writers’ — a lot of people that make this country great and that we don’t often get to see in mainstream media,” Whitmore said.


“Immigrants” is performed by K’naan, Snow tha Product, Riz MC, and Residente — all of whom appear in the video — and it samples “Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down)” from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton. The song was released in December on The Hamilton Mixtape, which featured covers and remixes of songs from the record-breaking musical. The titular lyric of “Immigrants” comes from a line that consistently gets applause during Hamilton, but the Mixtape version features other original lyrics.


When Whitmore was deciding how to translate the music into a video, he wanted to take “a bit of a metaphorical approach to the overall story,” he explained. The action takes place on a train, with the artists and background actors reflecting various immigrant communities. “Ultimately the migrant narrative is kind of the narrative of human history,“ Whitmore said. "And so, to set the whole film on a train, this never-ending cycling around this globe in space, is what made the most sense in the end.”


[…]


While the video takes a somewhat metaphorical approach to the immigrant story, Whitmore and his collaborators wanted to make sure to infuse it with a bit of reality as well. That’s why, over the credits, former Hamilton star Daveed Diggs is joined by a group of kids from Get Lit, an organization that promotes poetry and literacy for young people, many of whom Whitmore said “are either directly affected or have family members affected by immigration issues.”


“We wanted to use the end of the film as an opportunity,” he continued. After the train metaphor, Whitmore’s goal was “bringing it back to reality and shining a light on the next generation of kids and artists that are activists and using their voices to raise awareness. [That] was really important and special to us.”

Very rare footage of "6.1 THE MEN", the joint presentation of Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme and Comme des Garçons Homme Plus F/W 1991 in Tokyo on June 1st, 1991.

This was the first time that both designers had presented their menswear in Japan. The shows were modeled by musicians, actors, and various other creatives - even some members of Yohji’s company, if I am not mistaken.

The two men being interviewed in the video are (in order) Haruomi Hosono and Yukihiro Takahashi of the legendary electronic trio Yellow Magic Orchestra, with the famed Ryuichi Sakamoto being the third member.

Below is a more thorough explanation of the show’s theme and significance, followed by an extremely valuable and hilarious first hand account of the show and a certain happening backstage, told by German guitarist Ottmar Liebert who was invited to model for the show - Courtesy of Asobu from Styleforum.

A/W 1991, as far as I know, showed in Paris at the end of January 1991 and then showed again together with CdG in Tokyo on June 1st and called “6.1 THE MEN”. Still one of the most talked about and coveted collections by Yohji fans in Japan from what I can tell, many of the pieces still catch quite large sums on the second hand market. The theme was “war”, several musicians including Charles Lloyd and John Cale (who also modeled in A/W04 btw) modeled the show and apparently sang some antiwar song together at the final part of the show (the collection was created and shown during the gulf war). Some of the signature pieces was the leather jacket with women prints on the back (he referenced this in “my dear bomb” as well, when he talked about nose art of american fighter planes being pictures of “girlfriends and sexy ladies” when heading into battle), zipper jackets and Joan Miró inspired blazers.

This is a great story from Ottmar Liebert about his experience when he walked the show, well worth the read.

“In 1991 the Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto, together with Comme des Garçons, was putting on the first men’s fashion show in Japan and asked me to be one of his runway models. At the time Yohji prefered to use actors and musicians over models and he has also used athletes in the past. I flew to Tokyo from Los Angeles and was picked up at the airport and taken to a very nice hotel in Tokyo, which Frank Lloyd Wright had designed in the sixties. The show took place in the Olympic swim stadium of Tokyo, where the pool had been covered by a runway stage. On each end of the runway a huge wall was erected. Behind one wall Yamamoto was set up and behind the other wall Comme des Garçons. 

Comme des Garçons : Dennis Hopper, Trumpet player Don Cherry and his son Eagle-Eye Cherry (a TV presenter in the UK and not yet the pop star), British actor Julian something or other, Keyboardist Morgan Fisher (who later produced the wonderful CD "Miniatures” to which I contributed a piece)… 

Yohji Yamamoto : Charles Lloyd, Edgar Winter, a member of YMO (one of Japan’s most famous bands, which also featured Ryuichi Sakamoto)… Yohji and his people treated everyone wonderfully. And then he made a mistake on the day of the show. 

Thinking we were all men instead of the stars some felt they were, he offered as part of the refreshments Japanese cans of beer. In Japan cans are tiny, they are cute and many of the guys probably thought that one couldn’t possibly get drunk from drinking tiny cans of beer….well, if you drink a dozen of them you do get drunk, you know! And then a British pop singer asked a French rapper to turn down the crap on his boom-box and the French guy responded with his fist, which fractured the pop guy’s jaw. While he was rushed to the hospital Yohji’s people frantically searched for somebody who could wear his clothes…. In the end one of Yohji’s French employees took his place and wore the clothes well. I felt terribly embarassed. Here we were in one of the great cities of the world, guests of a real artist, and these men had to get into a fight. What a way to repay Yohji’s kindness! But fame is fleeting and karma instant.. I never heard from the British pop star and the French rapper again…

I remember how amazed we were at the Japanese audience. Some had waited since the early morning hours and yet, when the doors opened the first in line went to the last seat instead of claiming the best seat in the house. It was almost biblical…

One thing I remember about the show itself is that Yohji, who is a guitarist himself and also produced the soundtrack, had installed sound triggers along the runway. We were invited to step on those triggers, each of which controlled a different sound that would blast over the music. Car crashes, industrial sounds, drum breaks, glass breaking, guitar riffs etc…I also remember that the Brit who was walking ahead of me was drunk or high or both and thought that the crowd’s enthusiasm was directed at him instead of the clothing…I remember three or four people helping me change into the next outfit, grabbing shirts, pulling on shoes…I remember the late Don Cherry walking around on the runway like a court jester and greeting the other Comme des 
Garçons walkers…“

Times when Fashion really seemed to be about the passion and love for the beautiful creative work of these designers. Inspiring.

Steve paused before speaking, unsure how to proceed. “Y/N…is there any way…could I see you again before I leave?” he blurted the last part before he lost his nerve.

You smiled, “I’d like that.”

He sighed in relief, “Okay. I’ll be in touch. Good night, Y/N.”

“Good night, Steve,” you echoed as he pulled you into a lingering hug. He smelled amazing, like Old spice aftershave with an undertone of fresh linen. He watched you climb the stairs and step inside before walking away, your heart rate beginning to slow at last.

You woke up the next morning alone, stretching spread-eagle across the full surface of the bed with a smile on your face. Last night was unexpected and while you still didn’t know what it all meant, you tried not to overthink things. Stepping out of the shower, you saw a few text notifications on your phone.

Bucky’s read:

Hey babe. Up for Ultimate Frisbee in the park and a few burgers?

then clicking over to Steve’s message:

Good morning, Y/N. Are you free this afternoon?

Engeki Haikyuu Blog Survey

As we approach the summer limbo where the actors work on various other productions and personal projects unrelated to Haikyuu, I do want to keep updating on their activities, but there are obviously several to keep up with and sometimes it’s hard to tell where the fandom interest lies.  

To try and make this as impartial as I can, I’ve created a survey to gauge interest in the various actors.  I will update on the 10 Karasuno actors regardless because they are the main team, but based on the survey results, I will also update on the top three actors from other teams.

If you have a moment, please visit this brief survey/poll and let me know your thoughts! (x

Hello! Got an announcement to make for a friend for a Doctor Who fanfiction project that we’re all very excited about.

“Attention all!  We’re looking for volunteers to take part in a fan-produced Twelfth Doctor audio adventure. This is entirely voluntary, however, we’re hoping that this project will have a fairly respectable amount of listeners when it eventually materialises – it’ll be a great opportunity for various fans and aspiring actors and actresses to come together and produce a love letter to what’s been an amazing era of Doctor Who.

Cast-wise, we’re currently looking for:

  • A Peter Capaldi voice impersonator (if you’re Scottish you may get some preferential treatment, but we’re considering all submissions very carefully) – leading role
  • Two female voice actors, both either Irish or able to put on a convincing Irish accent (not a Northern Irish accent, though!) – one a leading role and one a major but slightly less significant one (yes, you can specify)
  • A female voice actor, any age/accent welcome – main antagonist
  • A female voice actor, any age/accent welcome – minor role
  • Two male voice actors, any age/accent welcome – both minor roles
  • A male voice actor, preferably older-sounding with a Cockney accent – minor role
  • An actor of any age or gender, who is happy to have their voice modified to sound very, very strange

*Any category specifying ‘two’ doesn’t mean you have to submit together. We’re only looking for individual submissions.

If you are interested in taking the project to play any of these parts, please drop us an email at twelfthdoctoraudio@gmail.com.  This doesn’t mean you have to agree to take part yet – you can email us if you want more information but are still considering.  We’ll be able to give you more details about the story and how we’re producing it. Don’t worry about submitting any recordings yet – you’ll get to have a look at the script if you’re interested in taking part and we’ll work on the auditioning and recording process from there. If you’re not interested in taking part, we’d still really appreciate it if you gave the project a boost by sharing this post with your followers!  Thank you for your time.“

The script is one I’m quite excited about, written by a talented friend off a premise we’ve bounced around a bit. It should be quite a treat!

DANGANRONPA ACTOR AU NO ONE ASKED FOR-

-Kyouko, Byakuya, Nagito, Peko, Makoto, and Sayaka were all scouted off Youtube. 

     -Kyouko and Sayaka ran a joint makeup channel, Byakuya ran a political channel with the occasional funny video and joke, Peko had a channel for cosplay (Her most favored Cosplay was Kotono Mitsuki, which is the character she ended up playing), Nagito had a skit channel, and Makoto was a famous gamer and Red actor.

-They’ve all appeared on Buzzfeed. Byakuya and Touko were kicked out because they just found Buzzfeed annoying

-Live Streams are the best time to ask them questions

-In an interview, Fuyuhiko and Peko were both asked about their character’s dynamic and relationship. As Peko was explaining her character Kotono’s love for Daisuke, Fuyuhiko’s character, a fan of the show screamed ‘I FUCKING SHIP IT’

-When Nagito met Makoto, he screamed and took many pictures. In an interview he states that it was a ‘religious experience’ to meet his idol

-On a live stream, Junko stated that when she met Mukuro for the first time, her first thought was ‘I can’t play this girl’s sister’

-Even though Mahiru’s character is a photographer, the real person that takes the most pictures on the set is Ibuki hands down

-One time Akane followed every cast member around the set and filmed herself sticking a random food item in their mouths

-Sayaka took a video of Byakuya suprirse kissing Makoto. After he did so, he turned to a giggling and filming Sayaka and said ‘Am I Dan Howell yet?’

-Teruteru hums Troye Sivan songs all the damn time. Now everyone who’s ever spent five second around him knows the lyrics to ‘for him’

-Nagito has tripped on camera a total of 105 times

-While Hajime was taking a break, Nagito jumped on his lap and screamed ‘HAJIME HINATA TRASH #1!’ Ibuki had replied that he was basically Dan with Phil, so Nagito kissed Hajime’s cheek and replied with 'Dan wishes’

-Fuyuhiko had starred in musicals before. The one he was scouted from, however, was a Japanese production of  ‘Jersey Boys’, where he played Tommy DeVito.

-As soon as Ibuki was casted, she put it on ALL of her social media and tagged all the actors

-Sayaka has stated that her biggest inspirations were Corey Monteith and Christima Grimmie

-While Byakuya was being filmed, Touko would crouch behind stuff in the background and make screechy bird noises. Byakuya has to fight not to lose it.

-Carpool Karaoke where Ibuki drives around and picks up various actors form the show and sings with them. The funniest videos were when she had Byakuya (He started rapping to Nicki Minaj’s verse in ‘Monster’), Teruteru (He tried to aggressively sing both parts in ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’), and Kiyotaka (Who knew he had a deathly heavy metal scream?)

    -Not to say that the others singing and dancing in Ibuki’s truck wasn’t hilarious as well 

-While Peko’s trying to be Sparkling Justice, Kazuichi and Sonia wouldn’t stop screaming the lyrics to Sailor Moon. She had to take off the mask and bust up laughing

-When OHSHC Season 2 was announced, Sayaka and Hifumi wouldn’t stop screaming and running around telling eVERYONE

-Glee is a cast favorite show. Sometimes, on Makoto and Kyouko’s snapchat story, they’ll all be at one of their houses and watching Glee with a bunch of junkfood (They have to skip ‘The Quarterback’, or it’s all over)

-Hifumi’s Instagram is the most popular

-Don’t mention Death Note Season 2 to Hifumi, or he’ll go on the hugest rant ever about how L Junior and Misa were useless and shouldn’t exist

-Kokichi started the ‘Dicks Out For Harambe’ and ‘White and Gold, Black and Blue’ memes don’t start with me

-Once Peko and Mikan got into a heated argument on Twitter. Why? Because Peko swears all Pasta tastes the same.

-No, Teruteru has never met Shane Dawson. No, he’s not copying him sHUT THE HELL UP MANDI_KOMAHINA59-

-While Juzo was being filmed talking to Makoto about his character’s jealousy, Kyousuke had ran at him and jumped on him, screaming at a laughing Makoto that Juzo was his

-Chisa screamed the lyrics to ‘Chandelier’ by Sia as she climbed onto the chandelier she was going to ‘die’ on. The others in the room busted up laughing.

AAAAAAAAAAnd that’s all I got! Hope my comeback is good!

“Gal Pals” is often code, not cluelessness.

The female lead actor in a huge movie franchise was recently seen at a public event enjoying the company of a woman friend.  Their body language led many observers to wonder about the nature of the relationship.  There was much mockery on tumblr of descriptions by the press of the two of them being “gal pals”.  

“Straights are clueless!”  “Heteronormativity makes people blind!”, etc.

Well, probably not, at least not in this particular circumstance.  Consider:  

1.  Press outlets have been blacklisted or sued for publishing information that stars, powerful agents, or studios haven’t wanted published, like the real romantic lives or sexual orientations of various actors.  This is less of an issue today, where more and more celebs come out casually in social media and whatnot, but it’s still an issue.  

2.  While the love lives of stars captures eyeballs, directly outing people is considered unethical by many outlets (and rightly so).  

3.  Many journalists who cover gossip and entertainment news are themselves not “clueless straights”.

So, code.  Euphemism.  Read unironically, “Gal pals” is a goofy, 30′s screwball comedy-esque way to describe a female friendship in 2017, but it’s a useful way to hint while skirting saying something outright that might be proven wrong later or get you into trouble.  The articles documenting say, K-Stew when she was constantly being seen out and about with various women, but before she started openly talking about her sexuality, weren’t written by idiots. “Gal pals” is the modern version of “confirmed bachelor”.

It’s a web series where various voice actors, led by DM Matt Mercer, have adventures in Dungeons and Dragons and it’s plainly fanstastic.

WHAT EVERYONE THINKS {part 9 of WE GOT MARRIED}

Namjoon came home after he read Jungkook’s texts to find the script on the table with a note. Just read it. – JK

Jungkook had left the dorm and Namjoon sat down. Flipping open the script, he was first met with the title. Working Title – What Everyone Thinks by Y/N. He frowned a little. The title was a jab and he knew it. A jab at how he cared about what everyone thought. The second page had a summary of the series written by you and a simple abstract of the pilot episode.

An actor finds himself completely at a loss when he realizes that his career is in need of a total re-write. He turns to those around him for help, but they don’t want to deal with a washed-up actor. Instead he confides in a group of previous award winners and asks them what they would have done differently. The series ending is still in the works, but either the actor, played by Jeon Jungkook, will make it back in show business or be completely content with becoming just another fan.

This episode is introducing the characters. It will open with the main character getting the same conversation as all the supporting actors from their managers, played simultaneously. They are all told, at different times in history, that they aren’t relevant anymore. The episode will then be Jungkook’s character meeting the various supporting actors/actresses.

Namjoon continued to read the script. It was written like every other script, line by line, but Namjoon could sense the emotion behind it. He finished the first episode, which ended with Jungkook’s character breaking down in front of his new mentor and realizing that the career he thought he had was over. But there was an amazing moment where the mentor consoles Jungkook and Namjoon understood that the series wasn’t about mocking Namjoon, but rather showing him your side. Namjoon stood up and went to your apartment.

Jungkook sat at your kitchen table, tapping on the mug of tea that you had made for him.

Do you think he’ll get it? Jungkook asked anxiously as you sat down. Shrugging your shoulders, you sighed a little.

I don’t know him as well as you, but he seems like a smart guy. I think he can put 2 and 2 together. What I really want to know is how you feel about the series? You were dying to get some feedback. You weren’t used to the writing. Jungkook smiled.

It’s great so far! Can I help with the writing? Maybe we can figure a time for me to come over? I think it would really help me with learning the lines. Jungkook spouted off and you laughed a little. Jungkook was nervous and you could tell from a mile away.

Of course. I just want to make sure that it’s a good series. You mumbled into your tea and Jungkook looked a bit wide eyed over your shoulder. Namjoon stood at the door, pushing his hair back into place a little, he responded.

It’s a great series. I think it is something totally different. His deep voice responded from behind you and you froze. You didn’t realize just how upset you were until you heard his voice again. The strong façade that you had put up for the past 2 days had withered, you gripped the mug and didn’t turn around. Namjoon’s heart sank as he understood just how much he hurt you. Jungkook, do you mind? He asked and Jungkook was already halfway out the door by the end of his question.

Y/N, I’ll see you in a couple days so we can talk about the next episode. He smiled and you only lifted your hand in a waving gesture. You didn’t want to look at Namjoon, but you knew he was still standing at the door.

Why are you here? We don’t have filming until Wednesday and I wouldn’t want to cast a spell on you, because I’m such a witch. You spat and took a sip of tea. The anger overflowed and Namjoon wanted to smack himself in the forehead and eat his words.

I’m sorry for saying that. He approached the table and sat where Jungkook had been sitting moments before. You turned your gaze down to the mug, if you looked at him, you knew you would tear up and you wanted to stay strong.

Whatever, Namjoon oppa. Namjoon flinched at the formality of your tone. We only have a week and a half of filming left. I’m sure the two of us can be talented actors. Namjoon shook his head.

I don’t want to act, I want to go back to before. When I was reading the script, I heard you loud and clear! I need to be more comfortable with who I am, not what people say. I need to be more like you! He exclaimed and you looked up from him. The look you had was distraught, borderline depressed as you stared straight into his eyes.

I do care what people think. I just don’t let it hinder who I am. It hurts to know that people judge me so quickly and I have cried many times, even before you told me, because I knew that people didn’t want to deal with me. But when you were so comfortable with saying that people call me a witch and bitch and think I’m stand-offish. God, do you know how much that killed me?! Do you know how hard I want to fit in? I know the only reason people deal with me is because I’m successful, but that series isn’t a commentary about you. It’s about me. It’s MY fears. The day I become irrelevant and no one thinks I’m worth dealing with anymore. You crossed your arms and let the tears slip out of your eyes. Looking down at your lap, you saw the tears drip onto your arms and splash. Namjoon sat back. He didn’t mean for you to get so upset, he just wanted things to go back to before. Then he stood up and walked over to your side of the table. Sitting down next to you, he wrapped his arms around your shoulders and pulled you into his chest.

I’m scared about that day too. But you’ve made me realize that if I can’t look in the mirror and be happy with who I am, then it’s not worth being relevant. He whispered into your hair and you smiled into his chest. That warm feeling you got whenever he was around came back and you looked up at him. Namjoon’s heart was beating so hard that he was scared you would hear it, but something about you, even with your face a little blotchy from crying, made him go completely crazy. He thanked God for the chair he was sitting on because of his weak knees from looking at the smile on your face. Leaning down, his eyes closed with anticipation and now it was time for your heart to beat hard. You closed your eyes and felt the lightest kiss on your lips. Namjoon thought that your lips felt soft, maybe from the tears, but he deepened the kiss by lacing a hand into your hair.

You don’t remember how it happened, but before you knew it, you were leading Namjoon into your bedroom. Things were about to change drastically.

Edmure Tully and Narrative Superposition

Or: Edmure Tully Did Nothing Wrong And Everything Wrong.

One of the big bones of contention among those of us who take imaginary fantasy battles and politics seriously is the degree of culpability, or lack thereof, various actors involved in the Battle of the Fords have. I’m gonna wade into this morass myself and see if I can pull anything of value from it.

Strap in. This is under the cut, and it’s going to be a long one.
