wearing a waistcoat

screen portrayals of jo march ranked by butchness

I’ve never seen any of these but does jo even cut her hair off in any of them? has anyone even read the book?

katharine hepburn (1933)

sorry katharine, but there’s just nothing redeeming here. I guess she’s leaning against the mantel? that’s a little butch.

1980 anime christmas special

pretty bad. the mom wears some kind of waistcoat thing in this so I don’t know why they put jo in this weird ruffled dress with that ugly brooch

susan day (1978)

wrong hair color, but they still got her mostly right. the plaid on plaid makes up for the bow. (she marries william shatner in this movie)

june allyson (1949)

this is a butch outfit. the colors are really masculine and I like the collar and that weird square pattern. they could have taken it a lot further, but a really good effort. also the first google image result was from afterellen, so I’m giving her points for that. I would probably marry this woman.

winona ryder (1994)



 There is a book that an editor friend is pushing to get published, but the house needs to know if there is interest in a fashion book that would be just for trans men, non-binary lovelies, ladies, and the like who like wearing slacks, waistcoats and such. LIKE AND/OR REBLOG if you would be all about this becoming a thing!

Ragethirst highlights: Legend of the Fist

This movie was actually really good? I mean, Donnie Yen singlehandedly won WWI, so that was fun. But the plot was fascinating, the characters were great, it was heartbreaking and lovely and just an overall good movie.

That being said, there were some definite highlights.

  • The costumes. Holy fuckballs, the costumes. Donnie needs to be banned from wearing waistcoats, it does terrible things to us. Also he is blocked forever thanks to that fucking bomber jacket.
  • Kiki. We are all. So gay for Kiki. 
  • This film was basically a mashup of Casablanca and Batman.
  • Donnie is Kato.
  • I looked away from the chat for two minutes to try and focus on the movie, and when I glanced back, they were gleefully discussing rimming, felching, and snowballing. 
  • The weird cut when Donnie left the girl and the score began to play and we legit all thought the girl had just burst out into operatic music. 
  • Torture Butt™
  • So many emotional whiplashes. Sad to funny to heartbreaking to action to more sad.
  • I still don’t even understand how it happened, but Jo and Sarah outlined a High School Musical AU of Rogue One. 
  • Donnie’s mustache was an experience. Donnie taking off the mustache was a sexual awakening.

You’re welcome.

A Business Arrangement

My first attempt at Malec smut (or any smut for that matter).  

Summary: Set sometime in the late 19th to early 20th century.  Alexander Lightwood is an aristocrat sent to broker a business arrangement for his father with an old classmate with connections in the Far East.  

Magnus Bane sat causally in an armchair in his drawing room, his right ankle draped over his left knee. He was wearing a deep plum waistcoat and pressed trousers. The man was reading the latest review of his estate when his butler entered the room.

“Sir, there is a gentleman here to see you. Alexander Lightwood, sir.”

Magnus sat up straighter, intrigued. “Is that so? Well, let him in then.”

The butler nodded and exited the room only to return with a beautiful man. He was tall and slim, his black waistcoat fitted perfectly to his lean body. His black hair was slightly ruffled from the top hat that his butler was holding and his stunning blue eyes jumped out at him, set against his pale skin.

“Thank you, Barnard,” Magnus said, dismissing his butler.

He gestured for the younger man to take a seat. “To what do I owe this pleasure? I do believe congratulations are in order. I hear you are engaged to the lovely Aline Penhallow. A fitting match for the heir to the Lightwood estate.”

The young man flinched at the amusement in his voice and the way his eyes gleamed almost accusingly.

“I’ve come to inquire on a business arrangement, Mr. Bane,” he replied formally. He sat stiffly in the chair. “My father is interested in procuring business in Indonesia and would like to enter into a business agreement with you.”

“And he sends his son to broker this business arrangement?”

“He knows that we are acquainted from school.”

Magnus leaned forward, an almost sinister grin on his face. “Oh does he now? And just how well does he know our acquaintance.”

Alexander blushed and turned away, distracting himself with pulling out the documents he had with him. “The details are all here. I was hoping we could go over them and come to an agreement that is mutually satisfactory for both of us.”

Magnus smirked and the younger man shifted uncomfortably. “Oh, we can most definitely come to a mutually satisfactory agreement. Come, we will take this to my study.”

The young aristocrat followed the self-made businessman through the large house until they finally arrived at the man’s study. Magnus held the door open and waited for Alexander to step in before closing the door securely.

Before Alexander could say anything, Magnus pushed him against a wall, pressing his thigh between Alexander’s legs and holding his wrists up against the wall like the spread wings of a bird.

hi my name is Franz P'eter Schubert and I have short curly orange hair (that’s not how I got my name) that reaches my shoulders and light purple eyes like the deepest void and a lot of people tell me I look like Franz Schober (AN: if u don’t know who he is, get da hell out of here!)I’m not related to Francois Schubert and I don’t wish I was, because he’s not a major fucking hottie. I’m a composer and my teeth are straight and white. I have pale white skin. I’m also a teacher and I teach in a regular school called My House in Vienna where I teach anyone. (I’m 31.) I’m a Romantic, in case u couldn’t tell, and I wear mostly yellow. For example today I was wearing a yellow coat, brown waistcoat, green bow tie, brown trousers, white stockings, and black shoes. I was wearing little round glasses. I was walking outside Otawakan. It was snowing and raining, so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. Mozart stared at me. I put up my middle finger at him. 

“Hey Franz!” said a voice. I looked up. It was….Ludwig van Beethoven! 

 "What’s up Luddy-senpai?“ I asked. 

 "Nothing.” He said shyly.

 But then, I heard my friends call me and I had to go away.

No matter what you wear, I can almost guarantee Newt will be dressed more casually than you. I'd say go ahead and wear the Boss Man Suit with no cufflinks. He'll probably be into it. That or the red striped jacket and cream slacks from the What Ho Nice Day At The Races Jeeves collection. I'd go with a navy blue necktie, though, rather than the bow tie in the image. He'd probably enjoy how colorful it is? Ultimately, of course, it's your body and your choice what you put on it. Good luck.

More casually? More casually. I can do this. Boss man suit, no cufflinks - and the waistcoat, I was told to wear a waistcoat earlier.

I’m going for it. Let’s do this thing.

I should be sorry...
  • Sherlock: *knocking*
  • Molly: *opens the door, dressed as a pirate; beaming* Oh, it's you.
  • Sherlock: ...
  • Sherlock: ...
  • Molly: *confused; glances down* Oh, right. Um, there was a mix-up. Mary brought me the wrong thing *tugs on the shirt* The waistcoat's a bit tight, though *hands on her hips* What do you think?
  • Sherlock: *urgently* Why are you wearing it? If it's wrong...why try it on? Why wear it now? Why, wh-why do such a thing?
  • Molly: *hurt* It's not that bad, is it? I have a hat, if that helps *places a pirate hat on her head*
  • Sherlock: ...
  • Sherlock: *quickly closes his mouth*

  • Molly: *folds her arms* Which was?
  • Sherlock: *lifts the hat from her head; smirks* I'm the Captain of this ship *snogs her passionately*
