what could the title be referring to

AN ~ time for another Framework Fic! I’m hopefully going to write some fun/funny ones sometime soon but for now the tension & angst remains! I was prompted:

“Jemma made a point to tell Daisy not to die in the framework bc it would mean actual death. … [What if] just as they’re about to head to the backdoor, something happens to Daisy that puts her in mortal peril?“

Contains: Romantic FS, Platonic Skimmons. Title is a Matrix reference.

Red Pill, Blue Pill

Jemma wonders if perhaps they could have chosen a less shady-looking meeting place than a warehouse apparently wedged between a coffee shop and a fish and chip shop in the middle of nowhere. If nowhere is safe for them, since Aida knows all, perhaps they could have gone with a nice beach or something. Then again, she supposes with a metallic taste in her mouth, everyone meeting here has worse things to worry about than the location – like facing, and trusting, their enemies on the whim of two strangers.

One by one, they arrive; hesitant, but unable to shake the feeling that something has been wrong for a long while now, and determined to find out what. May has her arms crossed, passively studying the arriving faces with an almost aggressively blank expression. Coulson looks like he wants to make conversation with the next person he sees, just to release the tension, but he’s already tried with May and she didn’t respond. Eventually, Mack comes in too. He has a picture of Elena that Daisy had given him earlier – he even starts to talk to Coulson about it – but it’s clear that he doesn’t remember who she is; it’s like they’ve told him about a high school friend, or given him a vision or a dream. Then Mace comes in, the face of managerial enthusiasm as per usual, and it’s almost a relief that he still looks like the kind of person who would say something like a team that trusts is a team that triumphs. Less reassuring is the fact that he also looks like the kind of person who’s about to pick a fight with May and destroy this entire building.

Jemma steps forward.

“Hello everyone,” she greets. “I’m sure you’re wondering why we’ve brought you all here today.”

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: with less than a year to go, episode 8 has finally been given a title and it's epic: The Last Jedi. What does it mean? It's probably about Luke because, duh, and plus they called him the last jedi in the title crawl of TFA, but what about the fact that Jedi is the plural of Jedi? Could it be referring to the last of the Jedi order? Or that this will be the start of the Last Jedi ever??? Or is it simply that the ideals of the Jedi will die with Luke, and though Rey (and Finn???) will train in some capacity of the Force, it's no longer something as Black/White as the Sith/Jedi? Will Rey (and Kylo???) Become grey? Will there be more "jedi"??? Is this the End, or simply the Beginning of the End? Also, the logo is Red??? Like??? ONCE THE LAST JEDI IS GONE IS IT GONNA GO ALL DARK, DISNEY WHAT IS GOING ON.
What Do We Find Attractive?

Reblog this post if you find the ladies of long ago to still be beautiful in our modern 21st century!

In our era where thigh-high splits in skirts and navel-length necklines in dresses dominate the couture of what seems like nearly every female celebrity—not to mention many instances of very heavy makeup—one often has to wonder how our standards of the beauty ideal have changed. A century and more ago, Charles Dana Gibson developed what was considered for that era, the Ideal Woman. She had a sweet and wholesome look, and one of her biggest extravagancies was her pompadour hairdo, commonly referred to afterward as the “Gibson Girl” look.

A woman—if she wanted to retain the title of a true lady—would be dressed most respectably always, and if she dared to show her ankles among the company of men, oh, she was a hussy! When we realize what was considered proper in terms of dress in the Edwardian era (and what could really be inexplicably daring!), one often has to wonder how some vintage photos we look at now seemed in their heyday. By looking at this image below, the question that comes to mind is, Was Camille Clifford considered to appear “loose”? Although her gown was generous in length, the cut of her neckline seems to me to be a bit of an eyebrow-raiser in its day.

If Miss Clifford lived now and appeared on the red carpet, would she even be noticed for this? I’d say not at all! She would look exceptionally modest and would instead likely earn either high accolades of being most stylish (as I would tell her!) or be censured for being old-fashioned! It really is incredible how fashions change.
   When we are bombarded with more and more bold fashions and daring hair colors, one has to wonder if the glamour of long ago can last today.
   If you find such luminaries as Camille Clifford and Evelyn Nesbit (to name just a few; I’ve picture more well-known faces below), let me know by reblogging this post!

One of the best parts of the first Magnus Chase book is that Rick Riordan keeps making meta references to his other series. Like, during suggestions of what Sumarbrander could turn into: “A pen sword. That is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard.” Or the chapter title “Hearthstone Passe out Even More than Jason Grace (Though I Have No Idea Who That Is)”. It’s great.

Approximately This Big (Bones x Reader)

Title: Approximately This Big (which refers to something reader says whilst motioning. it’ll make sense if you read it)

Prompt: does watching what to expect when you’re expecting count as a prompt?

Word count: 2,688 (good god)

Warnings: language, pregnancy, vomiting

A/N: I was watching what to expect when you’re expecting (as i just said) and for some reason felt like writing something. Bones came to mind before anyone else could and i feel like it’d be interesting to be married to him, so here’s something that i wrote in the middle of the night that likely sucks! (tell me what you think, though) ENJOY IT (or try to, at least)

THE KIDGE AU MANGA HAS A TITLE!! (we’re at ten pages and counting!)

学校のウェブサイトをハッキングし、今私はサービスクラブにいる
     I Hacked The School Website and Now I’m in the Service Club

Why the long title? It’s more as a little tongue-in-cheek prod at long-ass Japanese short novel titles. lol SO!

I’d like to see what shortened versions of the manga title you, the fans, can come up with! It can include the Japanese title shortened up, or it can be something that involves the name The Service Club, plus a subtitle or whatever! It’s up to you! The best sounding name will be used for the main title on the final cover (plus a credit for the name as well!)

I’m so excited for this, guys. It’s really coming along super well. :D Who knows? the first chapter could be done by January ;)

If you want to be involved and wanna help out! Please refer to this post!

(what’s this?? backstory?? a flashback?? ohohohoho)

I’m a part of plenty of fandoms and sometimes I like to make references to them in my original works. My question is: what is the correct and incorrect way to reference things like characters, events, shows, movies, books, etc.? I don’t overdo it, of course, but I would like to make sure which way is right and which is wrong.


When it comes to referencing TV shows, movies, music, and books produced after 1923 and not in the public domain, you are very limited due to copyright restrictions. Here’s what you can do:

- mention the title of the TV show, episode, movie, song, or book. For example, a character could say they’re busy on Friday night because they’re binge-watching Game of Thrones.

- mention the actors, singers, musicians, bands, and authors of said titles. For example, a character might say, “I’m studying to be a nuclear physicist, but really I’d just like to be JK Rowling when I grow up.”

- mention the characters by name. For example, “Sarah went as Harry Potter last Halloween, but this year we’re going as Sherlock and Watson.”

Here’s what you can’t do:

- Refer to story elements in a TV show, movie, song, or book. For example, you could not have a character say, “When I saw Maddie in her wedding dress, I felt like Harry seeing Hermione enter the Yule Ball.”

- Compare your character to or otherwise describe a copyrighted character. For example, you could not have your narrator describe your main character as looking like a surfer boy version of Ron Weasley.

- Describe scenes, events, or settings from a TV show, movie, or book. For example, your character couldn’t compare the experience of going on a winter camping trip to Jon Snow going to the Wall, except with hopefully fewer White Walkers and wildling attacks.


Having said this, the reality is you probably aren’t going to get into trouble if you make one or two references like this, but the important point is that it’s possible. So, unless that reference is super important to you, you may want to err on the side of caution and just skip the reference or make sure to do it in a way that is acceptable. 

Also, I’m not a copyright attorney, so I don’t know everything there is to know about this topic. If you want to make absolutely certain you’re on the right side of the law, do your research or consult a copyright attorney. :)

ETA:

celtic-clay said: doesn’t make sense to reference things that will only be understood by those who’ve read or seen the thing you’re referencing, it’ll take anyone who hasn’t out of the moment.

WQA responded: that is true, to a degree. Pop-culture references can become outdated very quickly, especially books and TV shows. While such references can be a great way to root your story in a particular time or place, it can also date a story that would otherwise be timeless. Take a story like Twilight, for example. Although there was an established timeline if you do the math, the story isn’t hard rooted to those years, so someone now can very easily read it and imagine it taking place now. Someone in ten years could read it and imagine it taking place then. However, if there had been a bunch of references too TV shows that were popular in the early to mid-2000s, it would root the story more solidly to that period of time. That said, if you want a story to have a slightly more timeless feel, it’s best to avoid pop-culture references. Or, at least, look for references that are relevant across decades.

Having said all of that, it’s extremely important not to feel like you have to vanilla your story to the point that every single person who reads it will understand every element and reference. Coming across unfamiliar words, elements, references, and subject matter is a fundamental part of reading fiction. :)

"high class games of sorrow", for the title meme? :)

HIGH CLASS GAMES OF SORROW || star wars, luke skywalker/lando calrissian

Lando Calrissian knows better than to chase objects in motion these days.

They’re calling it a civil war now. Gives the whole thing a legitimacy, Lando guesses, though he doesn’t remember much of that sort of thing himself. Leia still calls it ‘the rebellion’, and Han just says ‘the war’ because what else could he be talking about? (There are a couple old-timers around who remember the Clone Wars, and a few longer-lived xenos who go back further, to when the Jedi were fighting the Sith. Lando’s heard rumors of species off in the Outer Rim with genetic memory, who go crazy at birth trying to digest the whole history of the galaxy. But naming is relative, and everyone knows what Han means.)

Lando asked Luke once what he would call it, and Luke just shrugged. He never did like the naming of things.

In hindsight, that was probably part of the problem.

Lando thinks about it—Luke, the war (these two things are forever linked, in his mind)—less, now that he’s back on Bespin, with ‘Baron Administrator’ settled over his shoulders like a mantle. He’s got people to take care of and gas to mine, and a board that gets cranky when he doesn’t meet his deliverables. This is the life he wanted. This is—

—of course, the perfect time for Luke Skywalker to come crashing back into his orbit.

Hi! I once read a wonderful sasuhina fic where sasuke returned to the village and had to marry someone so he told them to bring back the girl who said no she wouldn’t marry him. So the anbu was going around asking women if they would marry sasuke and hinata was one of those who said no and he chose her. I think in the same fic after a while naruto started to realise he was an idiot for rejecting hinata tho he didn’t act on his feelings because sasuke and hinata genuinely liked each other. If you know what fic I’m referring to I’d appreicate if you could tell me the title please thank you so much!

Funny story I thought I’d share. So far this semester I’ve skipped two of my history classes. My professor is very lax and specifically said we could skip three without any mark on our grade. We’ve had a total of six classes already and I’ve skipped two, so he sent me an email titled “Being a Better Student” that talks about the symptoms of stress (including skipping class) and links on how to better manage stress. Now I didn’t like this guy at first because I highly disagree with his politics but he gave me a hundred on a paper where I went on a rant about the economy and what it’s like being someone in their 20s right now (for reference this guy is a Vietnam vet) and he wrote on there that I made a very strong statement, my paper was interesting to read, and to “be positive”. I think I’m starting to like this guy a little more. Though his politics still suck.

Drunk Enough

I watched Chris Evans’ directorial debut today and it inspired this!
I’m not really sure why lol bc it’s so unrelated but yeah
I liked it so maybe you guys will like it too!
The world needs more Johnny anyway 

Title: Drunk Enough
Pairing: Johnny Storm x Reader
Summary: FWB relationship with Johnny leads to the dreaded “feels”
Word Count: 930
Warnings: There’s like some “hot” moments but no smut. References to sex and alcohol though.

Your name: submit What is this?

           Shutting the door behind him, Johnny pushed you against the wall, kissing you fiercely. His hands gripped your hips tightly, heating your skin as both your hearts pounded. You could still taste the alcohol left on Johnny’s lips.

          "Are we doing this again?“ he mumbled, lips now trailing down your neck.

            "Wasn’t this what we agreed on?” you replied, tugging on his shirt.

            It all started a few months ago. One drunken night and a few mistakes later, you found yourself in a friends with benefits routine. It wasn’t the best deal, considering the fact that you were banging Johnny in a dingy hotel room on a Saturday night, but neither of  you could complain.

so Yuuri is writing down his thoughts/ ideas about his choreography and music (that’s what I’m deducing at least), and I was curious what exactly he’s writing down. So I translated his note, though it’s just a rough translation: 

- 生の舞踏 (sei no butô) “Dance of Life” 
“Too bright, doesn’t fit the image. Doesn’t seem like skeletons would be dancing at night.” 
I’m no expert, but this seems to be in connection to La Danse Macabre (Dance of Death 死の舞踏)

- 魔導士の弟子 (madôshi no deshi) “Apprentice of the magician” 
“Can’t calm down. The tempo is too intense. 
Seems like water drawing magic could be used well/ I could use well…” (not really clear to what/whom he’s referring to here) 
UPDATE: Seems to refer to “Apprentice of the Magician” (many know it from Disney’s Fantasia); the original Japanese title is 魔法使いの弟子 (mahô tsukai no deshi)  

- 黒鳥の湖 (kokuchô no mizuumi) “Black Swan Lake” 
“Too gruesome/scary. I want to be/become stronger. 
Doesn’t seem like the White Swan will come out…” 

- くるみ割り人形 『ピポポウ』(kurumi wari ningyô - pipopou) “The Nutcracker” 
(he doesn’t actually write “kurumi” but I just can’t read the kanji he wrote i’m sorry) 
“Too painful. I want to do it passionately! 
I don’t want to see a dream like this on Christmas!” 
the pipopou confuses me as well, maybe it’s supposed to be パ・ド・ドゥ (pa do dou) “Pas de deux” which is the title of a scene in the Nutcracker

there’s a bit more, but Yuuri’s hand was in the way, so I only did these. Quite fun to see what he’s writing down :D 

I’m in Love With Someone Else

Summary: Chat Noir visits Marinette after a bad day, and it’s all downhill from there as they start growing closer! Eventually, Chat Noir feels like he needs to ask Ladybug something, and manages to accidentally reveal himself in the same breath.

August 5th is one of my best friend’s birthdays ! I wrote her a Marichat Fic to celebrate since I believe it may just be her favorite of the love square. The title is a reference to a Parachute song.

anonymous asked:

does det går bra really really translate to 'it goes well'? or is it just an awkward google translate kind of translation?

halla anon

literal translation: it goes well

so its what you would say if someone asks how you are doing: 

“hvordan går det?” (lit: how is it going) “det går bra!” (lit: it goes well

you could also say “det går bra” as a response to someone asking how a project/job/relationship or anything really is going. we also might say “det går bra” in the meaning “that’s/it’s fine” or “it will be OK/fine/good” 

i don’t really know what the title of the play is referring to though!
