anonymous asked:

do you really think that boys are not good enough and would not be succesfull without Louis?

The simple answer is yes. I do think Louis is the key to how they evolved as a band. It has nothing to do with whether I think the boys are good enough on their own.

Take the things we know: Simon wanted to put together a boyband. He had a formula in mind and a shelf life. Simon originally gave them a three year contract which is what I think he thought their original shelf life would be. But Simon never had plans for longevity.

Louis has always been their leader. He’s your favs fav and he cultivated each of the boys individually and collectively. There’s plenty written about Louis pulling Liam out of his shell. Watch the way the other boys talk about him.

I’d bet money he was one of the loudest about every aspect of their image. We call them a boyband but they really bucked a lot of those troupes and you have to have a strong personality who’s not afraid to make that happen. That person is and always has been Louis.

I also very strongly believe that Harry is the greatest performer of his generation and that part of how he’s gotten there is he had Louis in his corner. He had encouragement all along. You don’t become that person in a vacuum.

All in all, he fought for them. He fought for the sound they ended up with. He fought for their image. And all of those things add up to the lightning in a bottle that is One Direction. Without the version of One Direction that came to be we wouldn’t love them as much and they wouldn’t have the solo success they’re all having.

It didn’t behave
like anything you had
ever imagined. The wind
tore at the trees, the rain
fell for days slant and hard.
The back of the hand
to everything. I watched
the trees bow and their leaves fall
and crawl back into the earth.
As though, that was that.
This was one hurricane
I lived through, the other one
was of a different sort, and
lasted longer. Then
I felt my own leaves giving up and
falling. The back of the hand to
everything. But listen now to what happened
to the actual trees;
toward the end of that summer they
pushed new leaves from their stubbed limbs.
It was the wrong season, yes,
but they couldn’t stop. They
looked like telephone poles and didn’t
care. And after the leaves came
blossoms. For some things
there are no wrong seasons.
which is what I dream of for me.

So there was this assignment I had in high school bio where you were supposed to look at your immediate family and find out whether they had any of a collection of minor traits whose heritability was well-known, draw a tree, and then form some kind of conclusion about the pattern. (e.g. is it recessive? dominant? etc)

In my specific case, the assignment kept giving nonsensical results, which was frustrating.

What I’m saying is, if I had had the presence of mind to put two and two together, I could have gotten the spoiler about my dad not being genetically related to me years early… probably would have gotten a better grade if I’d done the scientific thing and confronted a parent to test the hypothesis, rather than just writing the thing down and writing “this doesn’t make sense” as a conclusion, too…

frustrating. it would have been so dramatic…

Characters: Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, Castiel

Pairing: Dean/Castiel (it’s mentioned as being established but not in great detail; this is essentially a Sam finds out fic) 

Word Count: 385

Summary: Written for @impala-dreamer

Prompt: Sam, in the Bunker, with Chocolate Milk

Late one night, Team Free Will meets up in the kitchen.

Warnings: Pure humor and nothing that even remotely resembles a real plot

A/N:  @impala-dreamer is a sweet and lovely person who keeps her anon box open and welcomes anyone to come in there and vent/rant to her, which is exactly what I did several times between yesterday and today. She encouraged me to write, even though I was having difficulties, and then prompted me, so I decided to give it another try as my way of saying thanks for her support and advice, even if she didn’t think it was very good. 

I hope this makes you smile :D

After tossing and turning for over an hour, Dean finally gave up on the idea that he’d be able to fall asleep any time too soon and got out of bed to go downstairs to the kitchen.

Much to his surprise, the light was already on and he could see from the doorway what was unmistakably the back of his brother’s head. Looks like Dean wasn’t the only one having trouble sleeping. Well, at least they could keep each other company. And maybe Dean could convince him to get his hair cut once and for all because if it got any longer, braiding Sam’s hair wouldn’t be a joke anymore.

Sam had been in the fridge, rummaging for something and turned around at the same time Dean entered the kitchen, jug of milk in one hand and bottle of chocolate syrup in the other.

An awkward silence followed as they stared each other down. Finally, Dean, unable to hold back his grin, had to speak up.

“Little late for sweets, isn’t it, Sammy?”

“Shut up.”

Before Dean could make another smart-ass comment (and boy did he have a whole bunch on the tip of his tongue), someone called his name, their voice rough and hoarse from sleep.

Of course, it was Cas. He stood blinking rapidly against the bright light, his hair mussed in the same way right after he woke up, sticking up on end.

“It’s almost one in the morning,” he said, frowning.

“Couldn’t sleep. What’s your excuse?”

“I woke up and you weren’t in bed, so I came to find you-” The sound of Sam choking cut him off.

“What?” Sam managed to barely get out.

“Cas, go back upstairs.”



Looking between the two brothers, one red faced with anger and embarrassment and the other’s expression smugly satisfied, Cas tilted his head to the side and raised an eyebrow at both of them.

“What?” he asked innocently.

Dean threw his hands up in exasperation, regretting many of his life’s decisions, including the one he’d made to leave his bed.

“Come on,” he said, grabbing Cas’ hand and tugging him out of the kitchen.

“Sleep tight, lovebirds,” Sam sing-songed after them, grinning.

“Drink your damn chocolate milk and shut up,” Dean shouted back. “AND GET A HAIRCUT, YOU HIPPIE.“

(part 3) I just love the whole sun goddess trend it's so refreshing and feels so good to feel delicate and magical in a non-white way, if you know what I mean. By all means, I don't mind white people in sunflower dresses and alla that, looks good on them too, but still feels more special to me as a darker skin individual. I guess I'm writing this because I was curious if you felt the same or even stronger about it (assuming u possess more melanin than I do which is likely)

I get what you mean and for ever black people have been told almost every colour looks bad on us, so what I like to do is appreciate how gorgeous colour looks on every skin tone and it’s that more magical because we’ve realised we don’t need approval from white people about what looks good on us!

idk if junkrat would be good at academic chemistry which is what i always see in fics but it Is a really good thing to mention in a way

guy who likes blowing shit up and ends up hurting himself a lot in the bombmaking process GUESSES he would be good at academic chemistry

realizes it involves a lot of numbers and memorization and precision and useless theoretical stuff that he sucks at but it sure does open a whole new world of chemical engineering he could really take advantage of IF he has notes n shit

this is a stupid question but idk who to ask / i feel like you're great w/ advice. i'm a virgin and i want to have sex with the guy i'm seeing, but don't have an easy way to get birth control anytime soon. is it ok to JUST use a condom? i'm just paranoid about getting pregnant omg help maddy

yes. Yes yes. Make him pull out, if you want to be VERY safe (which is what I do :)).

I’ve never ever had an actual “scare” (never had to pursue the abortion pill or classic abortion) but I’ve been scared of being pregnant and in turn, delayed my period by stress.

Also u can have him pull out and finish like on another place or whatever y'all wanna do :)

I use Trojan bareskin ones.

i second everything that has already been said about your writing, but you are also the master of the small moments between characters? your action scenes or the sweeping adventure elements are so lovely as well, but you write these interactions with such extraordinary beauty in the way that one character looks at another, or the sound of their laugh? its so vivid and it lets the reader breathe with the characters

this one made me so emo you guys thanks & ok, i feel like this past year ive been really fixated on exploring emotional intimacy & how that feels & how people perceive it outside of the realm of writing sex scenes (or even writing sex but writing it differently), especially like. the different ways people say (or don’t say - particularly don’t say, which is what I love so much about juno) how the feel. im obsessive i love picking it apart & mostly im just glad someone wants to read it HA xxxx

rlbblindbard  asked:

I have what might be a silly question for you. Why are some deity specific tags, like Brighid for example, have an asstrick at the end of it? Is it supposed to seperate it from other similar tags? Or something I'm completely unaware of?

Not a silly question at all! It’s basically a pagan and polytheist “thing” to make sure the tags aren’t flooded with fandom stuff or irrelevant stuff. 

Like, with Lugh, the “lugh” tag is often filled with people who mistyped “laugh”… which isn’t what I’m interested in, but “lugh*” will only have posts for the deity Lugh.

I hope I explained that adequately. I remember when the idea came to the Tumblr Pagan community but I forget who’s idea it was ;-; It was so long ago >.<;

anonymous asked:

you said you pride yourself in being the exact opposite of your parents. how did you do it? i don't want to be like my parents neither, and i'm doing a great job, but sometimes i catch myself acting or thinking like them, which is what i wanted to avoid.

the reason i’m proud i’m not like my parents is because they’re misogynistic, bigoted, hypocritical, conservative POSs - not because i like being different from them purely for the sake of being different. 

so if you’re trying to define who you are in terms of someone else and just be the opposite of whatever they are, regardless of what that is, then sorry anon but i can’t help ya there.

Producer Jeff Bhasker faced a daunting task several months ago. After having worked with Kanye West and winning Grammy Awards for producing Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk,” and Fun.’s 2012 album “Some Nights,” he had to decide whether to take on a new project: the debut solo album of One Direction member Harry Styles.

“I’d just had a baby, and I was kind of like, ‘Eh, I don’t know if I’ll jump into this,‘” Bhasker tells Variety. He agreed to have Styles come over to “just talk,” and proceeded to put him through the Bhasker home sniff test. “My dog tends to bite people, and he was kind of scoping Harry out,” Bhasker explains. Styles “did this move — like a little shoot the gun with his finger, and my dog walked over and started licking his finger. That’s when I was, like, ‘This guy has something special.'”

Once music came into the mix, Bhasker was sold. “He started playing references of what he wanted to do, which sounded like a cool rock band. I got it, and could see where if we pulled this off, it would be one of the coolest things ever. But he needed a buddy who plays guitar like he’s Keith Richards.” The insinuation being: Styles is the Mick Jagger in this scenario.

Adds Bhasker: “I’m so proud of the album itself, and also of Harry for being so brave, and committing 100%, and writing the kind of vulnerable lyrics that he wrote, and not pandering to what people thought he would do. People have no idea that this is what Harry Styles is like. Just like I didn’t know. He’s obviously very famous and beloved, but people don’t know the depths of what an amazing personality and artist he is.”

Variety spoke with Bhasker about the recording of “Harry Styles” ahead of the album’s May 12 release:

A lot of you have been asking for more photos of Sherlock. Like I’ve said before, he doesn’t really like photos of himself online because he wants to remain as faceless as possible for his work (we’re still making up for the damage the Irene Adler case cost his anonymity), but he doesn’t mind me sharing photos like these. So I thought I’d show you a few snaps from our date yesterday.
