Sally can smell it, the moment they find the spot. 

It’s not some Slayer Superpower thing, it’s merely that the tender cologne of bile, entrails and bits-that-used-to-be-people which a Grothlok Demon leaves behind is sort of hard to mistake. 

Even if it’s wafting out of a boarded-up former abattoir, you’re going to notice. 

Behind her, she hears Mary Watson draw in a breath, the blond nurse raising her not-at-all-suspiciously-well-maintained firearm and moving stealthily to Sally’s side. At the back of the alley, Molly Hooper is waiting, twitching with nervousness and hopping from foot to foot as Mycroft’s mysterious Girl Friday keeps the engine warm on Hudder’s car. 

“This is it,” Watson says, and it’s not a question. 

Sally nods anyway. 

“Got our supplies?” she asks, and the blond nods again, gesturing to her inside pocket. 

“Good,” Sally says. “On my count- One, two, THREE!” 

And coiling every not-inconsiderable ounce of supernatural strength she possesses, Sally kicks at the door to the abattoir, knocking it open. 

Without missing a beat, Watson reaches into her pocket and pulls out a small, knotted purple handkerchief which she tosses into the room as if it were a grenade.

“While Outlander is a brilliant period show, Claire represents so many qualities of a 20th-century modern-day woman, someone who is forging her own path, fighting for what she believes, and doing so with integrity,” Balfe said in a statement to press Monday. Elaborating exclusively to Vanity Fair, she added, “Right now it’s a very important time to stand up and voice our beliefs and reiterate that we are 50 percent of the population … that we have a voice and we need to use it. Even though Claire is a woman from the 40s, I think that she does have a resonance today. We need to stand up for our  b e l i e f s  and our  r i g h t s , and I think she embodies that kind of spirit.”

“…getting to play Claire was an absolute dream. She is strong-willed and, not perfect, but a survivor and a fighter, and I think that is such a great place to go to in your work every day—to play someone who has such resilience. It can only make you feel better about everything in your life. I feel very grateful to be able to go to work every day and play her.”

Happy International Women’s Day, sisters!


Her son, Ptolemy, succeeded his father and reigned until A.D. 40, when he was killed by Caligula, the Roman Emperor, and the North African kingdom was divided into Roman provinces. Young Ptolemy seems to have had no children, so the ancient line of the Ptolemies that stretched back to the successors of Alexander the Great had died out. It was a dynasty that produced some of the most impressive women of the ancient world.

Hcs for how amajiki, bakugou, shinsou, and iida would be with an s/o (female) who's v strong 💪👀 female powerlifters ftw!

Hey Dear! Thank you so much for your ask, I kind of can relate myself to it 😃 I agree with you, female powerlifters and strong women ftw!

Btw, I saw your request about Bakubae mountain climbing with his s/o. I literally know jackshit about mountain climbing, so I’m doing some research 😁 I’m excited to write it, salty boy is my aesthetics. Just in case it’ll take a little longer.

 Amajiki Tamaki


  • Boy is amazed and afraid at the same time
  • Since he has a lot of self-doubts he’s most likely to be “Am I really the right person for you?”
  • Once tried arm wrestling with his s/o, she almost broke his arm
  • She’s always ready to whoop some asses, in case someone would make fun of his shyness
  • Is actually super amazed by her strength, since he knows it requires a lot of effort and willpower to get this far
  • Loves being the small spoon, while cuddling in her strong arms. He feels really safe there, she’s his save haven
  • Body worshipping is his thing and he loves to pay attention to every part of her toned body
  • But I think if s/o had a kind of bodybuilder physic, he would constantly feel intimidated

Bakugou Katsuki


  • First he’s like ‘WTF’, isn’t she supposed to be the one who needs to be protected? Even if he’s not Kirishima, he has pride in his masculinity and it is low key sulking a little
  • Would never admit that he was actually impressed, when she won arm wrestling against Kirishima
  • After giving it some serious thoughts he’s more than proud of her. He’s the best and the strongest, so of course his s/o is the strongest too
  • Whenever she whoops someone’s ass, he’s cheering from the sidelines “Babe, crush that damn dickhead”
  • Never. Ever. Call her a beast, not even as a joke. It’s the one time he won’t let her handle this kind of stuff
  • One time she insisted on an arm wrestling match with him. She won and he’s still salty
  • While working out together he makes sure she’s handling everything properly (equipment, etc.)
  • Mr. Superbia will take advice from her
  • Will rub her muscles after workout, just in case they’re sore, of course without clothes

Shinsou Hitoshi


  • Is the most chill about it
  • “Oh, you can lift more than your own bodyweight? That’s cool!”, he takes a glance at her “mind lifting me?”
  • Will occasionally work out with her
  • Asks her for help, like “Can you open the pickles for me?”
  • Nevertheless, he is super impressed when he sees her lifting the really heavy stuff in the gym. Maybe he should work out a little more?

Iida Tenya

  • He knows how to lift and is super strong himself, I mean just look at his body
  • He is super amazed and super excited *insert Iida moves here*
  • Is impressed by her determination, after all it takes a lot to come this far
  • Will ask a lot of questions about her training, to gain some advice and give some advice as well
  • Working out with her and telling everyone how great she is
  • Will lecture her if she pushes herself too far

I apologize if this is not the greatest thing I’ve ever written and you expected something more

anonymous asked:

I love your artwork so much! Who is/are your favorite Killer?

Hello, thank you very much. <3 
My favourite killers are:
1. The Trapper. I don’t exactly know why.. maybe because I suck at playing killer and for me, the Trapper is one of the easiest killer to play? But I also like his design and perks. 
2. The Nurse, because I really love her design and skill set. I think she is a cutie as well…. q7q protect. 
I want to play her so badly, but her blink is so hard to master. I really suck at this. *cry
3. The Huntress, because (also) her design is very nice to look at and the song and backstory of hers are just so awesome. Also strong women ftw~ (ship her with the nurse)

Edit: I forgot Michael. I of course love him. (Do I really need to say this? Everybody loves him!)
I will always love him and he will always be protected by me. He’s precious. Srynotsry.
Also he’s good for trolling survs.  

The 11 Most Feminist Moments From The Golden Globes

If the 2015 Golden Globes taught us anything, it’s that women’s stories matter – and girls truly do rule. This year’s Globes gave us one badass feminist moment after another. 

1. Tina Fey poked fun at the props given to male actors who undergo physical transformations for roles – and simultaneously got in a jab at bullsh*t beauty standards.


4. Joanne Froggatt used her acceptance speech to elevate the voices of rape survivors.


6. Gina Rodriguez made it clear why having diversity on TV matters – specifically positive representations of the Latino community.


7. Tina Fey pointed out just how damn impressive Amal Clooney is. (George is a total trophy husband.)


8. “Transparent”-creator Jill Soloway drew attention to the discrimination still faced by trans people on a daily basis. Everyone deserves to live their truth regardless of their gender identity.


10. Maggie Gyllenhaal broke down the idea that all great roles for women have to depict “strong” women. Complicated women FTW.
