and how Inej absolutely stunned everyone in her Black Swan Variation and brought the whole audience leaping to their feet when she absolutely floored them with her hypnotic thirty two fouettés (4:19)
*fouettés - a pirouette done by whipping the leg to the side in a circular motion. In Swan Lake, Odile needs to do thirty two of these - a signature and iconic move that’s never been omitted from any SL production.
*Pas de Deux - literally, step of two where two ballet dancers perform together
*corps de ballet - ballet company dancers that dance as a collective group (or the lowest ranking members of the ballet)
Newt: Do you have like a first-date outfit I could borrow? Like, I don’t know, a pair of cargo pants? Graves: Yeah I wouldn’t go with the cargo pant. Newt: What about like a sexy hat? Graves: I don’t even know what that is. Newt: Helping already.

I really hate Markiplier's livestreams.
*has watched every episode of GTLive; archived, edited, and unlisted* What?
Well, I like the donation part, and they're still pretty funny. But they're just so long and ramble on. I get that's some of the benefits of livestreaming, but did he seriously have to livestream Undertale? I like the game, and the streams were fun, but it was just way too long. It takes away too much time.
I'm sorry, what?
Yeah. I don't know if you understand. It's a pretty unique problem.
Get out or shut up.
Because you can't even begin to understand the definition of "takes too much time".
i get that they wanted to make the belle dress simple to allow more movement and how emma wanted it to be more modern without too many hoops, a corset, etc. but honestly if i were cast to play a character with an iconic dress from a beautiful historical time period i would be geeking out too much to even care about movement or freedom or any of that i’d have such mad respect for the costume designer and i’d be excited to be suffering in corsets and hoops lmao like how many people get to have fun and get paid to wear amazingly designed baroque ballgowns? not me that’s for sure but i’d do it in a heartbeat
Hey! So idk if you're taking requests but on the off chance that you are, do you have any more headcanons for the YouTube au? I enjoyed the first one sooo much and now I'm way too invested - like would Marinette ever make a channel? Alya? Nino? (P.s. Congrats on finishing tangled ribbons dude!!! It was unbelievably cute and well written and fun and ahhh I've got a lot of love for it!)
YEAH MY DUDE I LOVE THIS AU LETS DO THIS!!!
(i had a bunch of these written down a While Ago but i forgot about them rip im sorry) also??? i cant believe i finished tangled ribbons?? constantly in awe that thats done
Yellow peppers. Orange peppers. Red peppers. Green were out of the question for being a little too bitter, but the red ones were mostly bruised, the orange ones didn’t seem too fresh, and the yellow ones were a slightly strange color. You sighed. The one day you managed to work up the resolve to cook something for yourself instead of stopping at one of your usual restaurants for a late-night snack, the grocery store wasn’t cooperating.
Well, at least the music was good. For a deserted and slightly dingy market, the music coming through the tinny overhead speakers had a surprisingly good groove, slap bass paired with organ and tight vocals bringing a small smile to your lips, your foot automatically beginning to tap as you sorted through vegetables in search of a high-enough-quality pepper.
“Leaving you-hoo-hoo, it really ain’t no fun to me…” A chorus joined the solo singer and you found yourself humming along even though you hardly knew the melody, your tapping foot gaining momentum as you started to lose focus on the task at hand. Your shoulders joined your feet in grooving from side to side to the song and that was when you heard footsteps and froze, cheeks heating.
“What?” a voice asked and you turned to see a tall man in a dark red leather jacket standing there, a surprisingly un-mocking smile on his lips. “It’s a good song.”
You chuckled awkwardly, tossing a pepper from one hand to the other. “Yeah.”
He stepped forward, extending a hand. “I saw you jamming,” he said, in a surprisingly serious tone considering his words. “Would you like to dance?”
“Well, can I at least have your name first?” you asked, setting the vegetable in your hand back on the display.
“Quill,” he said. “Peter Quill. Or Star-Lord. Either one’s fine. And you?”
Guys, I just… thank you a lot, with all my heart. Sorry if I’m not answering to each one of you directly, I’ll try to do that privately when I have some time. Also, know that I read every comment, tag or reblog you write under my stuff so I have to thank you for that too! Reading always gives me soooo much joy and fun! XD
To answer to that anon, I’m not aware of what a birthday present submission exactly is, and if you’re asking me to make or take one, but in the past, friends or fellow followers sent me art or other stuff, so, yeah, I think I accept them XD
I'm sorry I ask so much, but how did you get your blog to grow and have people send in requests? (also I'm using some dialogue from your old edits if that's fine :) but yeah, I just think it would be easier if people sent in stuff rather than taking from yours (i dont watch the shows too much soz)
Honestly, I don’t know. I never expected that it would turn into such a thing; when I started the blog, it was just something I had fun doing. :) It didn’t get requests right away, though; that happened over time. :3
When you’re looking for quotes, the internet is a great resource in general. You can use imdb, transcripts, or just type a series title and “quotes” into google. I definitely don’t watch all the shows I pull dialogue from; I’d have no time for anything else, if I did.
"Hello Yukari~ Have you been enjoying the ball so far~?" [Offers a plate of fresh pizza rolls] "The staff is a bit overwhelmed so there's not too much left out on the snack table, I hope these will suffice~! By the way; don't worry about feeling nervous when interacting with anyone here; we're all here to socialize and most of us are really friendly! I'm super new here and everyone's been incredibly nice, so feel free to mingle with other ballgoers; I hope the rest of your night goes well~!"
yeah, i’m having fun so far! i’ve mostly been standing back and watching the chaos, but i’ve starting talking to others a little bit!
