weirdly gravitating towards clothes that don’t even look like they’re from this century
“they’re comfy ok what more do you want from clothes”
finds a pair of (key: ugly) elastic pants (minho: i think my grandma has the same pair)
snaps the waistband a few times
these are his now and he’s never taking them off
actually pays for them while wearing them
he wears (minho’s) grandma’s clothes
he looks incredible
has been in the dressing room for a while
they know he’s still in there bc they can see his sneakers (taemin: hyung you good?? / jong: *mumbling something* / ot4: what
HE’S STUCK OK
can’t even open the door bc his arms are incapacitated so a worker has to open it with a key
the door swings open to reveal kim jonghyun, world-famous kpop singer, national heartthrob, owner of a lambo, mother of taemin, all sorts of tangled up in a sweater with his arms sticking out and his head somewhere swallowed in the fabric
shinee: ………………. / jong: …….. you guys gonna help me or what
everyone snapped a picture (minho: this is going to be my new contact photo for you ahaha what a dumbass)
still BUYS the sweater (jong: it looked good when properly put on ok)
brought his own canvas bag
“my body is ready, let us begin”
taemin’s pulling random shit off the hangers saying ooo~ try this giant flamingo-print shirt on
but he tied it so it looks good and that was not the reality taemin expected (jong: hey / taemin: you plagiarized my album)
his pile of stuff he wants is v rapidly growing and he’s thinking of all the diy projects he could do
actual sparkly eyes at all his new clothes and possibilities
actively choosing not to question the members’ fashion choices too much bc his stress level will just go up, up, UP (hitchhiking baby)
is he just really good at finding good things or does just everything look good on him? (key: both. it’s both
buys another pair of track pants to add to his ever-growing collection (”i didn’t have a green one let me live”)
“guys doesn’t this pullover remind you of our suits from dream girl era?” / ot4: haha yeah omg those suits
it’s a frankenstein’s monster of patterns and he loves it a lot
he just kept on holding it the entire time they were there, very fiercely defending its honor from taemin’s general assholery (taemin: it’s ugly / minho: your face is ugly)
unironically wears it everywhere
it makes him easy to spot in a crowd tho
might as well be wearing a neon sign
choi minho, rising fashionista or fashion terrorist?
isn’t really his scene but since he’s here might as well have some fun~
every time he talks to a member he’s wearing a different floppy hat but they’re not commenting on it
TvT notice me senpais
pulling the most ridiculous things he could find and posing and strutting like he’s on a runway
Robert Jacob Sugden is so fucking amazing, isn’t he?
He is a mess and a nightmare. He is wrong footed and can’t think before he speaks. He is arrogant and fiercely intelligent. He is hardworking and ambitious. He is heartbreaking and broken. He can hate with a burning intensity but he loves with even more. He doesn’t give up. He can be hit over and over by the world and fall but he staggers to his feet, looks the world in the eye and says “that all you got?” He is frightening and sad. If he loves you, really loves you, he will love you until the end no matter what happens. He is sarcasm personified. He is funny and quietly kind. He doesn’t care what you think (but he kind of does). He will fight until he bleeds and if you get in his way, he will cut you down. He is a thousand more things that I can’t even think of.
He is literally the most amazing fucking character.
Since there are only two things I love in life and that is PJO and Musicals I have to (not really but since u guys asked) share my thoughts with swear words on the matter of The Lightning Thief Musical
Musical Theater is the best fucking platform to use when you want to portray fantasy (at least imo) because you already have this huge suspended sense of disbelief. I mean you get that with movies and books and shit but there is so much fucking leeway when you’re in musical theater. the very idea that we accept people suddenly breaking out into song as a norm is enough for making anything in the mythical universe be so much more acceptable believable bc let’s be real if we get like any other live action version of shit like a tv series or a movie (remember the cgi on the second one?remember the sharks????yeah i thought so) it’s not gonna live up but in Theater since you already got this massive suspension of disbelief then fuck anything is possible and acceptable. (I mean shrek the musical, it was great but like man was it terrifying)
We will really get a better sense of the characters that can never ever ever be properly portrayed in movie form because they will fucking sing you their wants and feelings and motivations and insecurities and their relationship with one another. things that would take up like a lot of time in the movie could be solved with one song like a course of a relationship can be defined via duet. the literal actual journey of the trio could be sung in one number and you’d feel like yeah that was enough to explain the whole thing without feeling like it’s missing something (bc musicals are fucking magic like that lol no bc it gives the opportunity to literally tell you the plot of the story without it feeling too direct u get me? if not pls refer to the first song of the old musical)
THE SONGS. ARE YOU KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW? WE GET SONGS. WE GET TO FUCKING SING ALONG TO PERCY JACKSON. I MEAN. SOOONGSSSS. We don’t just get like a theme (i.e. Hedwig’s theme, the Imperial March, whatev) but we get FUCKING SONGS (i am pumped for that if you can’t tell I already loved the old ones). The songs as said above will give us better rounded feel of the characters that can and will closely resemble the books. And ofc important (even not so) character has their own songs that explores their depth more thoroughly than any movie adaptation can. Also the amount of storytelling you can get from music is just so fucking vast. if done well the score could carry so much meaning (i.e. Next to Normal man the one with Natalie and Diana with their duets i mean come on) and can you imagine what kind of reprises we can get from this musical???? Like reprises are meant to reintroduce a certain theme or a situation in a new perspective and I mean the number of things that happened in the book that are like in the whole series!!!!
Also if they do the some counterpoint duets and those different parts of different song in one shit that I love then it’s gonna be beautiful or funny or dramatic or all of the a-fuckin-bove. i am so ready.
it would give so much room for like the set and shit i mean in musicals you don’t expect the camp to be a camp camp unlike movies where you want there to be an actual physical space to see but ofc this is theater so u don’t get that but it’s totally fucking okay bc it is a musical. we dont have the same expectations we have with the movie bc hey it’s a musical what are you gonna do am i rite?
But at the same time have u fuckin seen what a good set design can do even with a small theater??? it can fucking transport you. a good set design is like having a fucking portal to take you there (e.g.
Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, Hamilton,
The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Next to Normal,
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time)
The cast. like in movies and shit constantly changing cast would be super duper taboo like everyone noticed how Pierce Brosnan was no longer Chiron right? and that bothered the fuck out of me but like with musicals when the next one comes ad there’s another percy it’s totally fucking acceptable bc hey that’s how it works man also different actors give different things in their performances which is often what happens and they give a different aspect of a character you might not have seen before
Also I see some people are all ‘But they’re not 12′ again and yeah okay they don’t look like 12 year olds bc duh they are adults but that’s okay bc it’s a musical! Aside from the law and problematic puberty that happens to 12 year olds having adults portray children is so much more palatable in musicals (e.g. Big Fish, Hamilton (bc u know anthony ramos didn’t look like a fuckin child but no one questioned it bc musical)).
the fact that this is a first to like 4 more is fucking crazy. i mean realistically i don’t expect there to be more but i mean if it does push forward do all the books that is insane. musicals don’t normally have sequels save for a few like the harry potter parodies and the phantom of the opera but aside from those you rarely ever get to see musicals with sequels let alone a fucking series so that’s something new
Okay so I might have lied a little bit there a number of musicals with sequels but like they are so unsuccessful like fade into obscurity kind of unsuccessful. so here’s the thing with having like a PJO musical series. the whole thing actual has one major plot to follow unlike previous sequel-ed musicals where they are not part of an overall narrative just an extension of what was said before. Let’s take Phantom of the Opera as an example alright? the Love Never Dies sequel was like a what happened after not really super important to the overall but with PJO when the play ends it’s open ended bc the story isn’t finished so you know that’s new.
with all that being said
im no expert just a very excited fan of musical and pjo
overall just very excited for the musical aces guys
- There will now also be ladies’ team competitions at World Championships.
- Due to the possibilities with the wind and gate factor, there will be no pre-qualified athletes anymore. This means that also the top ranked jumpers in the World Cup will have to qualify for the competitions. This possible change will be tested during this year’s FIS Grand Prix. The next decision regarding this proposal will be made at the FIS meetings this fall.
She had just managed to extricate herself from a gaggle of girls vying at her so as to get closer to Anton. The questions swarmed around her still, buzzing around her head like gnats on a lazy summer morning. Does he like to listen to poetry? How is his voice – does he sing? What’s his favorite treat? How had she replied again? He’s living, breathing poetry, had been one reply. Sings as lovely as a harpy before it begins supper. His favorite treat is feasting upon the treasures of his kingdom. The slightly bewildered and partially repulsed looks they had plastered on their faces was as rich to her as the honeyed cakes that she trailed after – once she had drunk in their shock, of course.
Finding Anton a suitable bride was like trying to count the stars above or the grains of dirt below. Impossible.
“Impossible,” she muttered as the tray of cakes evaded her once more, brushing just past her fingers and disappearing into the crowd of humans again.
Stomping after the thoughtless waiter with a scowl etched upon her brows as if she was ready to reign a holy terror. Finally, she had him cornered, fingers at the ready – until she saw her opposition.
“Don’t you dare touch my dessert.” She practically growled, slapping the offending hand away. “Not unless you’d rather I sink my teeth into your finger rather than the cake.”
AN: so i have always had the idea of spencer with a mortician and so this story was born from that. Its set in season 9-10 spencer, so after maeve and before the crazy shit show of cat adams. But any way tagging the favs @maybe-mikala@dontshootmespence
*yo yo yo this is a repost from ya friendly neighborhood Spencer Reid lover reposting the first chapter of my mortician reader anyway, goodnight from my blog to yours*
Summery: the stereotype of mortician is one who is a walking rain cloud seeing the last moments of a human. But for her it was just another part of life. Spencer reid is an FBI agent with the BAU a meeting during a case leaves him…wanting to know more about the lovely upbeat undertaker.
The first time spencer had met the upbeat undertaker was for a case, he was tasked with going to the morgue to find out if it was possible a body sent in could be still alive, if any possible means in a morticians hand book could hide the fact the person was alive.
He walked in with JJ next to him looking around the mortuary was strange, from the black decor that looked as of edgar allan poe and tim burton had become interior designers to the odd childrens corner with colorful toys parents dealing with grief could set there children so they didn’t have to be around to hear why grandma was gone, or any details on how her body would look.
“I mean i know the stereotype of mortician is all about the dark and dead but..this is not what i had expected..” JJ picked up a small doll, two black buttons for eyes and a sown mouth in a smile. The dress was something Dorothy would wear of she lived in halloween town.
Spencers eyes looked around the shop before walking towards the front desk a small bell sat a note perched behind it ‘Ring to call forth the spirit of the halls’ a small chuckle left his throat as he picked it up giving a ring. He turned to JJ shrugging as nothing happened. “Maybe the spirit of the hall didn’t hear us?” Once more he rang the bell waiting as a female voice shouted out
“The spirit of the hall heard you the first time, please do not ring again as to not wake the spirits of the bitch in the walls…also known as mrs. O'grady…botch on makeup job and they haunt you forever” spencer turned to JJ who in turn shrugged laughing to herself.
A moment later a young woman came out hair pulled back, eyes lined with what from afar could seem like the ashes of the people she had cremated simply got in her eyes and she rubbed at them, leaving a smudged grey ring, her lips were painted in a deep green color, like poison or a giant tree in a dark forest. She wore a black fitted shirt, a skull on the front, she was curvy, with bright eyes that lit up when she smiled, spencer watched her, eyes moving over her face quickly. “Sorry, i was in the back setting the machine up…um what can i help you lovely people with? Picking up or planning?” JJ stepped forward “Ma'am were with the FBI we were wondering if you could answer some questions,” her eyebrows furrowed as she nodded “Of course..um i’m (y/n) whats happened? What do you need” spencer stepped forward eyes looking her over, she was beautiful, truly,
“I’m dr. Spencer reid, this is agent jareau, we were wondering if a person working in ypur field could make it seem as if a person, was dead, to the public, any way someone could make it look completely real…” Her face scrunched as she nodded “Well the only way i could possibly see that happening is if they pull a juliet…ya know the priest gives Juliet a vile and the contents make her appear dead, then the priest can fake it like he did all his tests. Its a plant to make you seem dead. It masks your pulse…its how the main bad guy from the sherlock stories faked his death by hanging, how juliet would be able to runaway with romeo…once they have that…then its about faking death papers, and that’s it really. Also it would mean they have a way to fake being an examiner, so they do both…mortician and examiner.” Spencer nodded looking to JJ who nodded thanking her for her time before starting to walk out “Uh jj i’ll be out in a second…i just need to make a call” the look on JJ’s face screamed she knew what he really wanted to do but she simply nodded telling him to take all the time he needed before walking out leaving the two alone.
“So…um…i don’t do this…ever…ever. But um would you maybe like to get dinner sometime…i mean if you want…and i just um” her laugh set him back a minute as she pulled out a sharpie pulling his hand towards her writing her number quickly before releasing his hand, a smile grew on his face as he nodded “Um i’ll call you….” She nodded waving as he stumbled out almost tripping on a small toy car from the childrens corner.
He smiled as he opened the passenger door, quickly buckling himself in. “So when are you two going out?” Spencers face flushed as he cleared his throat “I have no idea what you are talking about…we should get back to the others tell them what she told us” with a knowing nod they drove to the office. Spencer glancing at his palm smiling to himself. He hoped this case would end soon. He had a date to plan.
