who loves boys in girls costumes

reputation - track preview/outline based on the 15 Taylors 

(a hypothesis based on the below scene and their order)

(notice poor shake it off Taylor fell on her ass again during the curtsy, lol. some things never change..)

Now for the tracks. Each of these versions of Taylor could represent a theme or a set of feelings for each song… 

Track 1 - Biker chick Taylor - this Taylor is strong, she held up 2 bikes. this Taylor  taking on the world. she’s a Badass
Track 2 - ‘Blind in love’ taylor (who is wearing a necklace with a long chain and a gold object on it, maybe symbolic of the locket…
Track 3 - reputation taylor - this taylor was crucified at the stake. this taylor seems to be the culmination of all taylors of the past … 

Track 4 - Red taylor - who was mean to fearless taylor :( and called her fake and earlier kicked her in the face. Red era taylor is bitter. bitter about love, maybe. and this taylor is never ever, ever getting back together with someone. (outfit)
Track 5 - hopeless romantic love story taylor ON TRACK 5 (send help). maybe it is acoustic (guitar)

Track 6 - “Look what you made me do” the one song we know already - thats the taylor pulling the receipts on everyone (clearly!) and also being a drama queen
Track 7 - This is award show / celebrity taylor, perhaps from 1989 era, holding the mic (proverbial) trying to play nice w/everyone, the one everyone tells to shut up. this taylor was eventually silenced
Track 8 - Met gala taylor  …… 

Track 9 - Confident in charge taylor (from the choreographed dance). This taylor’s got moves, don’t deny it. she has her act together. knows what she is doing.  Also this taylor is sexy and she knows it. 
Track 10 - Taylor who loves her friends, loyalty theme. Or, the taylor who is just like who she is in YBWM… the girl next door who likes a boy who she believes belongs with her. 

Track 11 - Anxiety/not ootw/zombie taylor. 
Track 12 - shake it off, just let it go taylor. During SIO this costume is during  “cant stop wont stop moving, … it’s gonna be alright”
Track 13 - Snakey / betrayal taylor. Fed tea by snakes. the one who says the old taylor is dead. this taylor doesnt seem to take any shit

Track 14 - prisoner taylor. did she try to make the best of the situation? she doesnt seem so happy at the end .. w/ her arms crossed.

Track 15 - this is present day “ts6″ taylor and the only outfit we dont recognize - cause we don’t know this taylor yet at all, but this is who taylor is today despite everything about her reputation.  all we know is that she is making taylor’s reputation follow her where ever she flies. this is a new taylor. and fittingly, the last track. she hasnt been introduced yet. but we do know she has some limitations. namely, a broken airplane wing that might not be allowing her to fly just yet.


reptuation. November 10. 

Her Favorite Genius

This is my fic for @passionate-hedgehog‘s exchange!  I got @stunudo to write for!

She only had a couple preferences: that it takes place within the first eleven seasons and that it has JJ, Garcia, and Spencer in it.

Coming up with an idea for this was easier than I expected.  This is inspired by the end of season 8 episode 5, where JJ announces Henry is going trick-or-treating as his favorite profiler, Spencer.  In this fic, Spencer and Y/N’s daughter decides to go as her favorite tech genius!

Hope you like this darling, I really enjoyed writing it!  Sorry, it’s a little short, I’ve hit a stump and really needed something to get me out of it.  This helped, but I hope it’s good nonetheless!

“How about dinner?  I’ll buy,” Rossi offered, smirking at his coworker.

“I’ll take a free meal any day.”

“What about Jenn, Y/N?  She still not going to trick-or-treat?” Rossi asked Y/N.  She was stacking file folders on her desk, trying to organize quickly so she could get out of there.

“Funny you mention that,” she replied with a smirk.  “She’s changed her mind.”

“Everyone,” Spencer said from the doorway.  “As you all know, little Jenn said she didn’t want to go trick-or-treating this year because she was a bit nervous about it.”

“Takes after her father,” Penelope said with a smirk.  “What changed her mind?”

“Well,” Y/N said, “I told her that if she doesn’t want to go, she doesn’t have to, but that meant she wouldn’t get to show everyone what she dressed up as.”

“You blackmailed a toddler?” Derek asked amused.

“She wanted so badly to dress up as her hero and favorite genius that she decided to come here and around the rest of the Bureau to get her candy.”

“She’s dressing up as Spencer?” Penelope gushed, placing a hand over her heart.

“Nope,” Y/N said with a grin.

Hii!!! I absolutely love your blog. Is my favorite one of Riverdale. If you're still taking prompts, I thought of a great one. Betty and Jug are best friends but both have it bad for each other but they don't know how the other feels. So one night they have a halloween party and Betty goes as she was in 1.03 and Jug (however you want but shirtless) and they're both shocked, especially Jug. They start flirting with each other until they realize they are more than friends.

Yes yes yes! I love this one.
***

It came as no surprise to anyone that Halloween was Jughead Jones favorite holiday, the one day a year he could be as dark and mysterious as he wanted and it was deemed socially acceptable, not that he cared what his peers thought of him, but sometimes it was easier to fly under the radar.

Speaking of Halloween, his redheaded best friend was currently trying his absolute hardest to convince Jughead to go to some Halloween party at the blossom mansion.

“Come on dude, it’ll be awesome. You love all that spooky stuff, I’m sure you can find something to creep on in that huge mansion! You’ve gotta come dude, it’s like.. a right of passage.” Archie pleaded, playfully punching Jugheads shoulder.
Jughead just rolled his eyes at his friend
“I see no appeal in hanging around a bunch of drunk and rowdy football players and half naked cheerleaders.”

“Did someone mention drunk cheerleaders?” Veronica said as she, Betty and Kevin dropped their trays at the lunch table, Betty taking her usual spot next to Jughead and shooting him her most excited smile.
“Are you guys talking about the blossoms Halloween party tonight? I can’t wait! What are you going as juggie? Just wait til you see my costume it’s a little crazy!”

He caught Archie’s eyes from across the table and he was actually smirking, he knew exactly what was about to happen
“Well actually Jughead has decided not too….”
Archie was abruptly cut off when Jughead kicked him from under the table finishing off the sentence
“Tell anyone what I’m going as, I decided I’m gonna keep it a surprise, ya know ‘tis the season of mystery and all that.” He finished lamely.
Archie snorted and jughead shot him a glare.
It was physically impossible for Jughead to say no to Betty and he sure as hell wasn’t about to disappoint her or let her down. She was his best friend after all, well after Archie of course.

Betty nodded understandingly
“I get that, well in that case I can’t tell you what I’m being! It’ll be a suprise for both of us!”

Kevin was staring at Jughead with a knowing smile and it made Jugheads skin tingle “what is it Keller?”

He just shrugged his shoulders still smiling
“Oh nothing. I just can’t wait for you to see Betty’s costume is all.”

Jughead felt the dark presence before he saw her. Cheryl blossom. How she had become part of this group was beyond him, but everyone else tolerated her so he just sucked it up.
She squeezed her ridiculously skinny self in between Kevin and Veronica and flipped her red hair directly into Kevin’s face.
“I’m sure Betty will look absolutely… darling, but wait until you guys see my costume. Veronica tell them how amazing my devil costume is.”
Jughead snorted and mumbled “how appropriate” under his breath, smiling when he heard the blonde beside him giggle.

Veronica rolled her eyes, “it’s a pretty banging costume, but it’s nothing compared to my cat woman costume, Josie actually helped me get it together. I told her I have to become an official member of the pussycats now.”

They went on to argue about who was going to look better before the final bell rang, pulling everyone apart and setting them off in separate directions. Jughead and Betty were headed the same way and she poked his side

“I didn’t take you for a Halloween party guy, don’t get my wrong I’m totally excited that you’re going, I would pretty much die without you but I figured you would rather be at home watching all the remakes of Friday the 13”
Actually he had planned on watching the Blair witch project first, but she knew him too well.

“It’s good to expand your horizons, figure one party won’t kill me, plus I get to see you in whatever silly costume you decide to wear.” He shoved her gently as she giggled
“Oh it’s silly alright.”

The rest of the day went by far too quick, Jughead was nervous about going to the blossoms, he had never been to a party let alone dressed the way he was. He stared into the mirror in Archie’s room. Said boy standing beside him dressed in army pants and some face paint, dog tags hanging over his bare chest. Archie had insisted they both go shirtless, it had been funny at the time but now? Not so much.

Staring into the mirror he sighed

He had on bright red suspenders pulled around his naked torso, connected to pretty low slung jeans, the bright yellow construction hat was placed on top of his head in place of his crown beanie and he was holding a hammer. He knew his body wasn’t In horrible shape, working at Fred’s construction over the summer had bulked him up and Betty was always squeezing his arms appreciatively underneath his tshirts. He knew Betty would love this costume, she would appreciate the irony of the wholesome facade. So maybe that’s why he agreed to wear this dumb outfit, Betty was always there in the back of his mind, why? Well he had no clue about that one.

“Ready to go?” Archie said from the door swinging his car keys.

Taking one final look into the mirror, Jughead shook his head, following the soldier to battle.

The party was loud and it was crowded, girls in lingerie were clinging to boys in basketball jerseys and boys in just underwear. He didn’t feel so bad about his toplessness now.

“Yo! Jug! Do you see the girls anywhere? I promised Ronnie the first dance!” Archie shouted over the thumping music and screaming guests.

Jughead just shook his head, wincing as someone dropped a red solo cup at his feet.

Kevin was the first to find them, he was already a little tipsy as he clung to Jughead
“Have you seen her yet?! Total smoke show am I right?!”
Jughead looked down at him confused
“What are you talking about?”
Kevin looked to his side and his smile got even dopier as he pointed a finger
“There!”

Following his hand, Jughead nearly dropped the boy to the ground.

Walking towards them, almost in slow motion was Betty and Veronica. Veronica was dressed in a ridiculously tight black latex suit and cat ears but she could have been wearing a full transformers suit and he wouldn’t have noticed his eyes were drawn to the girl standing beside her.

Betty Cooper was not Betty Cooper, she was something else entirely. Her long blonde hair was tucked away into a short black bob that accentuated her high cheek bones and rosy pink cheeks, she was wearing no top at all just a black lacy bra and a tiny little black skirt, her long tan legs were bare only lacy garters topping her thighs, the sky high black stilettos made her ankles look even tinier and her lips were covered in ruby red lipstick while her bright green eyes were lined with black, her long eyelashes heavy.
As she approached the three boys she bared her teeth, revealing realistic looking plastic fangs.

Veronica instantly grabbed onto Archie’s hand and pulled him away “first dance! You promised.” He was only happy to oblige following her leather clad booty.

Betty wasn’t speaking, her fiery green eyes trained on his bare chest occasionally alternating to his exposed arms. He couldnt say anything he wasn’t speaking either, having her this close he had a much better look at her ample chest in her barely their bra.

“Earth to bughead? As fun as it is to see you two ogle each other you might wanna move out of the middle of the floor!” Kevin shook them both out of their staring contest, Betty blushing bright pink as Jughead rubbed the back of his neck.

Putting his hand on her lower back he brought his lips to her ear so she could hear him over the music “wanna get a drink?” He asked
She nodded a little dazed by his proximity

As soon as they reached the kitchen and he handed her a beer, she was grinning
“I love your costume, who are you supposed to be Archie Andrews?”

He laughed out loud “well who wouldn’t want to be Archie Andrews? Americas golden boy, football captain, every girl in the world wants him. I could only dream of being such a guy.” He put his hand over his heart, fake swooning.

Betty laughed before looking down and playing with the top of her beer bottle
“Well just for the record. I would take Jughead jones over Archie Andrews any day.” She smiled at him.

He felt his cheeks heat and he couldn’t keep the smile off of his face. “So a vampire huh? What inspired this little number?” He reached a hand out to tug on her wig.
She shrugged smiling

“I like it, it’s dark and mysterious and fun! It’s what I wish I could be, ya know minus the black hair. I kinda like my blonde hair!” She giggled

Jughead tugged on her hand, pulling her closer to him “well for the record.” He smiled imitating her previous declaration “you are fun. and you’ve always been a mystery to me Betty cooper.” They both vaguely realized how close they had gotten. And Betty whispered inches away from his lips, smirking
“So you don’t like the costume?”
He laughed out loud and brought his lips to hers
“Oh no I love the costume.”

Then they were kissing. It was everything he never knew he needed. Her body fit perfectly into his and the way she nibbled on his bottom lip, sent him into another world. She tasted like strawberries and beer. His new favorite combination. Pulling away he smiled at the sound of her whimper.

Finally opening her eyes she raised a perfect brow
“I thought we were just friends Jughead Jones?” She grinned evilly.

He wrapped his arm around her shoulder pulling her into his side
“Oh bets, I don’t think we were ever “just friends”

She nodded against his side before turning to him and smiling, holding out her hand
“Okay than on the topic of firsts, how would you like to dance with me?” She was grinning mischievously and he sighed, smiling goofily

He could never say no to Betty Cooper.

'Black Lightning' Boss: 'This Is an American Story, This Is Not a Black Story'
EP Salim Akil breaks down The CW’s new midseason super series

The CW’s superhero slate is expanding even further with Black Lightning.

Slated for midseason, this update of the groundbreaking comic tells the story of electricity-manipulating metahuman Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams), who has logged nine years as a high school principal when he is jolted out of superhero retirement after his own soon-to-be-super daughters are essentially threatened by local gang The One Hundred.

Developed by executive producers Salim and Mara Brock Akil, alongside Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter, this Black Lightning’s battles are even more grounded in social justice than when Jefferson debuted as one of DC’s first African-American heroes in 1977. While topics like Black Lives Matter, race relations, and police brutality are on the docket, Salim Akil stresses, “This is an American story, this is not a black story… We’re going to be culturally specific, but universal in our themes so everyone can see themselves in these stories.”

Below, Salim Akil previews the new drama ahead of its Comic-Con debut. (Stay tuned for an exclusive first look of Jefferson building his new suit, along with an interview with Williams.)

Here is an very interesting question: 

My 8 year old daughter has been watching SheZow on Netflix. It’s a very funny show. (I love all the puns!) It’s about a boy who gets superpowers - but the catch is - the superpowers are for a superheroine! It’s just a boy stuck in a girl costume. He didn’t “Magically” change into a girl or anything. 

I did some research and apparently some “groups” where in an uproar about this cartoon. 

I don’t see what the big deal is because this kind of thing has happened MANY times before. Remember the Star vs. The Forces of Evil episode “Storm The Castle.” Marco had to wear a dress. This has also happened on Kim Possible and Danny Phantom too. 

So my question is…

Have you seen SheZow and what do you think of it? 

I’m usually not one for kid fics, but today I had a fantastic idea for a Stackson fic.

So imagine a storyline in which Stiles and Jackson sort through their enemies-to-lovers shit and end up happily married. Stiles becomes a deputy while Jackson decides to open an online business. They adopt a baby girl, and Jackson ends up a stay-at-home dad with a protective soft spot he only shares with Stiles and their kid.

Fast forward several years…

Jackson is known for taking their girl to the playground, and one day, while he’s talking to another mom, the girl runs up to him crying because the boys she’s playing with keep saying she can’t be King of the Castle because she’s a girl and girls can only be princesses. Jackson comforts her with, “If they won’t let you be King, then it just means you should be Emperor instead.“

Later that day, Stiles comes home to hear the story from the girl, who is still upset about having to be a princess. Stiles asks what’s wrong with being a princess. The girl tells him she doesn’t want to get captured by a dragon. Stiles tells her anyone can get captured by a dragon if the dragon is determined enough. The girl says she rather be the dragon, then. 

The next day the girl wakes up to find a dragon costume in her room. She spends the afternoon taking over the playground with her team of girls as the boys cry to their moms and Jackson is #noregrets like, “That’s what they get for telling my girl who she should be.”

And that is the story of how Stiles and Jackson end up raising a Dragon Emperor.

Some funny and interesting things I’ve learned about Teen Titans...

Something you might know is that plans for a Teen Titans cartoon featuring the line-up we all know and love first came about in the 1980s, after the success of “Super Friends”. 

The show was going to feature Cyborg, Raven, Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, Changeling (now known as Beast Boy), Starfire and a character created for the series called The Protector, who was going to be Robin’s replacement, due to him being one of the line-up on Super Friends. Unlike with the noughties cartoon, which was heavily influenced by anime, this cartoon was going to be done in a style very similar to that of the comic books, with few alterations to the characters’ appearances and costumes (one notable exception being Starfire - her outfit in the comic books was definitely not suitable for children!)

Though this cartoon series was never made, the Teen Titans did make an appearance in an anti-drugs PSA for kids. The footage has resurfaced on the internet so if you’re interested, you can find the PSA on YouTube.

Also, there was a Teen Titans segment on the Superman/Aquaman Hour Of Adventure, but that was in 1967/68 and featured Robin, Speedy, Aqualad and Wonder Girl.

You probably noticed that the line-up of the proposed 80s Teen Titans series and the 60s Teen Titans segments both contained a character who was never featured in the noughties series - Wonder Girl. I read online that when the writers were planning the show, they wanted Wonder Girl to be one of the main line-up, but just couldn’t get the licensing and never even managed to get her an appearance on the programme. However, she did appear in the spin-off comic book series, “Teen Titans Go” (which isn’t related to the infamous Cartoon Network show of the same name, I hasten to add!) You can see the design for her here:

The noughties Teen Titans cartoon contained a mixture of villains who were from the comics and those who were created for the show. Some of the villains taken from the comics include Slade (originally called Deathstroke - apparently the creators of the cartoon thought that was inappropriate and used his civilian name instead), Brother Blood, Blackfire, Trigon, Doctor Light and the HIVE team of Gizmo, Mammoth and Jinx. I found some pictures of the HIVE team back in the 80s and…wow…you wouldn’t believe what they looked like!

In the above picture is Psimon, Gizmo (who, instead of a bald little boy, used to be a dwarfed man with a beard!), Jinx (yes, that is really Jinx - she wasn’t always a cute goth girl with crazy pink hair), Mammoth, Neutron and Shimmer (Mammoth’s sister, whom I’m surprised wasn’t in the cartoon - maybe they couldn’t get the licensing for her either).

You probably know that Terra was also originally from the 80s comics, but she looked - and ACTED - very different back then!

No way would she have got away with smoking or saying “damn” on a TV series aimed at kids! Also, they completely redesigned her outfit and hairstyle. Pageboy haircuts haven’t been in fashion since the 1980s!

Another villain they adapted for the TV series was one of my favourite characters, Mad Mod, who was originally created IN the 1960s, back when Mod style was still in vogue! That’s like basing a supervillain on the hipster style in this day and age!

Of course, when they adapted him for a modern audience, they really made a joke out of the fact he was so quintessentially British, playing much less on the fashion designer persona he had in the 60s comics and emphasising his quirky personality and obsession with retro style.

Some villains created especially for the series include Control Freak, Kyd Wykkyd, See-More, Billy Numerous and - my personal favourite - the Amazing Mumbo Jumbo! Something I found out on his page on the Teen Titans wiki was that it was possible he was based on the Great HooDoo from a show called Lidsville, created by the Krofft Brothers, who are known for making children’s programmes in the 60s and 70s with lots of psychedelic imagery and bizarre-looking puppets. I looked up a picture of the Great HooDoo and let’s just say I didn’t know whether to be fascinated or horrified.

He looks just like a low-budget, live-action version of Mumbo! Not only that, he’s actually pretty terrifying.

As consolation for exposing you to that nightmarish screencap, I will now show you a more pleasant image to finish off this post. Here are the designs for the Teen Titans’ civilian outfits in the 80s cartoon:

(Though don’t ask me how Cyborg and Changeling/Beast Boy managed to turn back into their original forms!)

I used to perform burlesque, having got into it in part to accept my female body. And, while I would love to perform in the future - as a boylesque performer, I had no immediate plans to perform. But when some of my burlesque and drag family asked me to perform at an upcoming festival, I didn’t want to turn them down.

I miss performing, I miss being back stage, I miss spending more time with them all. So I thought about it and worked out a costume and routine that I was sure I would feel comfortable as performing as a boy who still looks like a girl. 

Today I did the costume and makeup run throughs (spawnling joined in as you can see), and I cried. 

Let me explain why. 

I finally got my appointment sorted to start hormone therapy. I get my first testosterone shot on 26th September - 5 days time. 

I’ve had my doubts here and there, I’ve worried that this is all in my head. But the truth is I know it isn’t and I know that I’m not female. But that doesn’t stop me freaking out a little about hormones. And my main concern - given that I have spent decades persuading my brain to love my body and have succeeded as far as I can - is that the superficial changes would make me unhappy after finally being as happy as I can. 

There are many aspects of hormone therapy that I am incredibly excited about. But I’ve worried that, as someone who is fairly effeminate, the masculinisation would not sit right with me. 

And well, today for the first time in my life I drew on a beard and I cried like a little baby because I felt like I was really looking at the real me in the mirror. So yet again, years after the first time I took a lesson, years after the first time I made a costume and stepped on the stage in an effort to better accept myself, burlesque is still helping me be who I am meant to be. 

Santa doesn’t like naughty boys.

Another year, another two endless weeks stuck in the mall for 5 tortously slow hours, another a little too tight everywhere elf costume despite his complains to Chris which the boy always answered with nothing but a wink, another endless line of unbelievably loud and suspiciously sticky children.

Hey, he needed the money. Okay?

Yuuri sighed for what it felt like the tenth time that hour, being once again dragged by a way too excited Yuko, who this year was deressed in a candy cane costume, for his liking, rolling his eyes before smiling for the picture as the guy dressed as Santa, Jean? Jack? Joe? Yuuri always seemed to forget his name, tried for the kid on his lap to stay still.

Don’t get him wrong, he loved children. He even hoped to have his own by now at 23, but here he was, watching boy after girl and girl after boy letting go of their parents’ hands to rush their way towards Santa, ready to ask him for presents that superpassed his wildest imagination, some of them making him chuckle in the corner behind his hand but then he remembered, they weren’t there for him, they were there to see Santa.

Or his best friend, Pichit. Everyone loved the reindeer with the red nose. Including the mums. Some dads too. This never made Santa very happy.

“Help!” A pair of little arms quickly wrapped their way around Yuuri’s legs, knocking the breath out of him and almost making him lost his balance, surprised with what he found when he looked down. Clutching onto his knees for dear life and shaking, was a kid looking back at him, blonde hair a mess under his cat eared hoodie and green eyes glassy, like he’s been crying. “I can’t find my daddy.”

Sympathy filled immediatelly Yuuri’s heart as he kneeled to be at eye level with the boy, sweetly wiping the tears off of his chubby rosy cheeks and gently combing his fringe out of his eyes with fingers, smiling because the younger trusted him enought to let him do it.

“Everything’s gonna be okay.” Yuuri cooed like he has oh so many times. “Can you tell me your name?”

“Y-Yuri.” The little blonde stuttered, hugging a stuffed animal, he could swear it looked exactly like the dog he used to have, close to his chest.

“Well, Yuri. That’s my name too. How funny is that?” He smiled warmly at the kid who kept looking at him with nothing but huge green eyes now full of astonishment.

“Really?” He gasped loudly, jaw almost touching Yuuri’s stupid elf shoes, immediately making him remember wre they were.

“Really.” Yuuri got up into his feet again, looking around for Yuko but at the same time never loosing sight of the kid before him. Once his gaze found the red haired’s one, he motioned down at Yuri with his eyes, his friend understanding in the span of a second, giving him thumbs ups smiling and mouthing something like good luck. “I’m gonna need your help here buddy, okay?” The boy nodded violenty, waiting for instructions. “What your daddy looks like?”

“It’ll be easy to find him, he has really long hair.” Yuri said matter of faclty, not thinking twice before slipping his tiny and sweaty hand, the one not holding his stuffed animal, into the older’s as he tugged him fowards to start to walk, taking him by surprise and making his heart flutter. “Like, really long hair.”

“Okay, that’s… helpful.” Yuuri mumbled almost to himself the last word, the blonde offering him a beaming smile, of course he heard him.

They kept walking for a about 15 minutes, which included Yuri letting go of Yuuri every time he saw something cat related, his own cat ears bouncing with at the top of his head every small movement he did, making the older run after him, task that was pretty dificult while wearing thighs thank you very much, and pick the toddler up, promising him that if he was good his daddy would buy him everything he wanted, after he returned everything he took to its corresponded store of course, or even better, that if he has been nice the whole year, he would personally tell Santa to do it himself.

He was in the middle of his “A day in the life of an elf” monologue when-

“Yuri! I’ve been looking for you!” A tall, slender, not to mention gorgeous, man was suddenly running into their direction, bumping into a few people and in the way, apologizing rushedly afterwards, and quickly picking the little blonde up. 

Yuuri took a good look at the stranger.

He was definitely a few years older than himself, even tho his dainty features didn’t gave much away, skin white as the fake snow he was sure he was still covered with, glowing blue eyes with pretty pink lips to match and silver long hair.

He had to give it to the kid tho, he did had really long hair, like waist long hair. 

“I could say the same.” Yuuri found himsef mumbling under his breath before he could stop himself.

“You got me worried sick!” The man leaned to kiss soflty every inch of the younger’s face as he craddled it, letting out a sigh of what looked like relief, his loving and caring expression suddenly turning into a stern one. “Never let go of my hand again young man.” The blonde pouted, nodding before oppening his little arms, the man dropping the autoritory facade in the blink of an eye and hugging the kid close, who waisted no time in wrap his arms around the older’s neck.

“Oh, hello.” The stranger said cheerfully, now addressing the awkwardly elf standing there.

“I’m sorry, hi.” Yuuri snapped back into reality after a few seconds. “Is this your son?”

Way to go, Katsuki.

“This little phirozky here?” The father apparently, blowed a raspberry into the kid’s tummy, making him burst into laughter. Yuuri could felt his heart grow three sizes larger. “Yes, and you are?” His attention went back to Yuuri, who suddenly felt a little underdressed wearing thighs under the older man’s gaze.

“Yuri!” The blonde yelps before he had a chance to speak, holding his dad’s cheeks as if he was telling him the greatest news he ever heard. “Daddy, we have the same name!”

“Would you look at that.” The man played along smiling wholeheartedly, balancing the younger in one arm to offer his hand for Yuuri to take. “Victor. Thank you so much for taking care of him, I’ve always been quite clumsy and this one here has always been quite the handful.”

“Yuuri, as you may already heard.” He blushed shaking Victor’s hand. “And its nothing really, happens all the time.”

“Don’t you have something to say, Yuri?” Victor looked down at his son who has somehow magically climbed down from his dad’s arms, hiding behind his lanky legs as he smiled shyly, making the older man roll his eyes lovingly.

“Thank you, sir.” He mumbled against his stuffed animal, looking up at his dad for aprovation, who grinned widely in return.

“I’d really like you to join us for lunch to thank you, Yuuri.” The older man suggested, his smile not fading the slightest as he waited for an answer.

“Oh, I shouldn’t.” Yuuri looked down biting his lip as he felt his cheeks starting to go warm again. When was the last time he got invited to lunch by probaby was the most attractive man he has ever seen? Fuck, scratch that. When was the last time he ever got invited to something? He wanted to. He really wanted to. But he knew he had no chance with this man. He was dressed as an elf for fuck’s sake. “You know Santa doesn’t like naughty boys” He laughed nervously, adjusting his glasses and scratching his neck.

“Sad.” Victor smirked sarcastically, confusing the younger man. “Because I do.”

The Hunger Games | closed @for-the-love-ofscience

The reaping… Steve dressed as well as he could, given the state of things in District 12. He combed his hair, kissed his mother’s cheek and headed for the square. He checked in, signed his name and then went to stand with the other boys of his district. 

The woman who came to choose the tributes was dressed in some garish looking costume and Steve could only roll his eyes even as he wondered what it would be like, living in the Capitol and never having to worry about anything.

A girls name was called. She looked about his age, maybe a year older, but she didn’t look like she would survive very long unless she was good at hiding. The boys were called next and the name sounded slightly familiar. Steve looked around and saw a young boy, all but skin and bones, looking terrified as the soldiers started towards him.

Steve did the only think he could think to do.

“STOP! I volunteer! I volunteer as tribute!” He walked over to the boy and quickly shooed him off to his parents and looked up at the guards before turning and slowly making his way to the stage. The woman made a big deal about him volunteering, but Steve could have cared less. Like hell was going to let some poor, sickly child be taken and basically have their life thrown away.

i saw some people the other day talking about how the boys would be singing covers on tour and that louis would be singing let it go (i don’t think that’s true but it’d be cute tho) and all i could think about was louis in a pretty dress singing his heart out so here you have it (✿◠‿◠)

I miss the concerts. 

I miss the anticipation of waiting for them to come on stage. 

I miss 70,000+ girls/boys dancing to the macarena.

I miss waiting in the line for the over priced merchandise. 

I miss being surrounded by people who loved these boys as much as I do. 

I miss when the lights turned off everyone screamed. 

I miss the lights flickering to the beat of the music. 

I miss the sound of the music live, with their raw voices. 

I miss Liam trying on costumes fans threw up on stage. 

I miss Louis starting fights with the boys and the fans.

I miss Zayn presence, how he could make the audience awe with his voice. 

I miss the twitter questions. 

I miss the crazy posters. 

I miss the meet ups between the fans. 

I miss singing so loud you didn’t care on what any thought. 

I miss feeling like I was the only one there. 

I miss the lines for the transport home, or trying to find a parking spot. 

I miss the concerts. 

I miss watching the concerts in 10 second snap chats. 

I miss the constant presence of the boys. 

I miss seeing the boys live. 

I miss the feeling of when you got home and you were nothing but happy. 

I miss the feeling of home.

Thanks for the prompt! This one got away from me, as they usually do. The prompt was a kiss in secret, and the list is here.

I’m slowly trying to work my way through all the prompts people have sent in, and I apologize for taking so long on some of them. Not betad, so all mistakes are mine. Hope you enjoy!


“What the hell, Gale!” I shout, slamming my palms into his chest as soon as he steps off the elevator on the twelfth floor of the training center. “What kind of stunt was that? Telling everyone that you’re in love with me?!”

He staggers back into a vase full of sickly sweet blooms. The porcelain monstrosity wobbles on its pedestal and then crashes to the floor, sending broken shards sliding across the floor. Gale ignores the mess, his eyes narrowing and his lip curling.

“Yeah, Katniss. I love you. This isn’t how I planned to tell you, you know.”

His biting tone only ignites the anger I’ve struggled to contain ever since he volunteered to take another boy’s place in the arena. It isn’t supposed to be this way. We had a deal. Gale is supposed to be with my family right now, taking care of them. The sickening feeling I felt after I shot that damn apple out of the pig’s mouth during my training session returns ten fold. I shove him again, releasing a snarl.

“So what? You were going to tell me in the arena? That’s even worse!”

             Cat of the Canals Costume Appreciation

“I love Arya’s new look,” actress Maisie Williams told EW. “It’s very neutral, very plain, but clean! I have clean hair that actually moves.”

The transformation helps Arya stay anonymous while roaming the streets in her new home across the sea in the free city of Braavos.

Costumer designer Michele Clapton, who has subtly elongated and elaborated on Arya’s original costume over the years, says her goal with the new outfit was to reflect Arya’s location change and finally show Arya as a young woman rather than as a girl in disguise. “For so long she had to look like a boy,” she says. “Even when [the disguise] was no longer necessary, it made no sense to change it [because] she was on the road.”

Yet the makeover was so dramatic, it even fooled crew members who have worked with her for years. “I had my hair braided up to these big buns and bits of jewelry and a jumper thing with a long skirt, and I came onto the set and nobody recognized me,” she says. Getting rid of the clothing that Arya has worn through so much family tragedy over the years will even be a plot point in the show. “That was such a release—it was like no acting required,” she says of the scene. “This feels totally like a next chapter.” – Entertainment Weekly

What Cassie Loves and Hates

She likes:

Boys on swings, girls on skateboards, babies in high chairs, pharmaceutical medicine wrappers, people in hats with big eyebrows, and people in hats with big eyebrows and big mustaches, water caught in spider’s webs, wearing all her clothes at once, people who don’t smile- EVER, people who smile, hair that goes on and on, food… in some ways, she loves everything.

She hates:

Shoes, people who change their voices when they say something important, her thighs, war, swimming costumes that cling, dripping taps (which she also sort of loves), invitations, and radiators.
