[Tony turns around to see Bucky down on one knee]

Tony: Oh my God. What are you doing?

Bucky: Thinking about my future. I am deeply ridiculously in love with you. And above everything else, I just want to be with you forever. So Tony Stark, will you–

Tony: Wait, wait, okay? Just–I need to remember this. Give me a second.

Bucky: Tony–

Tony: No, no, no, no, hold on. Just–I need another second, please. I need to remember every little thing about how perfect my life is, right now, at this exact moment.

Bucky: [laughing] Are you good?

Tony: Yeah, I’m good.

Bucky: Tony Stark, will you—

Tony: YES!

[Tony kisses Bucky who then pulls back]

Bucky: Marry me?

Tony: Oh yeah, yeah!

Moana: So what am I supposed to do? Give up on exploring? Go back home, become chief, and spend the rest of my life staying right where I am? Just settle?

Maui: Yes! Thank you! Exactly! Settle. Settle, because otherwise you’re just going to get older and harder and more alone. And you’re going to do everything you can to fill that hole with friends, and sailing, and meaningless distractions, but the hole doesn’t get filled. And then one day you’ll have been all around the world, and met millions of people, and realize that everybody loves you but nobody likes you. And that is the loneliest feeling in the world.

I feel dumb but (and yes, I know no one knows but you seem to have more business sense and I very much don't!) Is it at all possible that something's keeping H & his team from doing real promo and so they had it seed instead? Kind if like how there is lack of promo for L? Idk, I just want to be excited and I am, but it makes me nervous. I'd rather have no clue at all over this. Sorry though, if I sound stupid. Have a super weekend! 💮

You don’t sound stupid at all, I think that’s what everyone is wondering right now.

And yes, it does rather appear that there are some constraints around him (and Louis and possibly Liam) promoting their own music in certain ways. That Niall doesn’t seem to have those same limits just makes it all that much more bizarre.

But there’s just no way of knowing unless someone from their team(s) spills the beans or we hear something from an “unnamed source” in a reputable publication. 

Which is why I don’t bitch much about any of it except to occasionally give Rusty shit. Why Rusty if Louis is under contractual constraints? Because Rusty works for Syco, and Syco would clearly be the source of those constraints. 

And I can only be nice for so long before I need to smack some heads and Rusty is extremely smackable.

anonymous asked:

You couldn't even take two seconds to look up what the proper title of an Indian 'princess' might be? An Indian princess is a Raajkumaari since you can find it on google in two damn seconds. It's clear your diversity is little more than thinly-veiled attempts at more notes and being praised for being 'inclusive and aware'. South Asian fashion and people aren't a trend you can just pick up, especially when you've clearly done zero actual research on the subject.

You know what, you’re right. I did not know the actual label for Indian Princess. For that I do apologize. I was ignorant enough to not even bother checking what the label would be. Thank you for letting me know. I will change it immediately, because I know a thing or two of wrong labeling since I am also a poc. Though I will correct you on one thing, I did not do it for the “notes”. Awareness, yes. Even in Sims you rarely see poc. I’m trying to change that by throwing some of my sims into the mix. And if I make sims in the future of different heritages/nationalities/races, I will definitely do more research on them to represent them correctly.

anonymous asked:

what do you think about Viktor, or what do you know about him so far?, are you his sugar daddy

“Well, i know he’s an idiot for sure! I spoil him like crazy and he still acts like a child!… Yes, yes i am. I’m his sugar daddy.”

“But that’s not what we’re talking about.  I know he’s disgusting and mean and … He’s also really soft. I love his hair a lot. He lets me braid it and style it.. UGH i don’t like him! Viktor isn’t that good, he’s just a fool.”

“Me? Have a crush on him? Nice joke. He…He needs me! He’ll come back.”

“…I hope…”

can i just say something?

when I was a kid, I told my mom that I wanted to be an actress when I grew up. You know what she told me?

She said, “sure, but you’re going to have to do it in China. America won’t hire you if you’re Asian.”

And that was it for that dream. 

Of course, that was just a phase - one of many, one I would’ve gotten over anyway. But what she said stuck to me. You’re going to have to act in China, because America doesn’t hire Asians.

And if there’s anything I learned over these years, it’s that she was right. Asian-Americans don’t get to see ourselves on screen. We don’t get to read about our deeds. And we get pissed. We complain, we shout, and people dismiss us because, oh, “the Japanese are okay with Ghost in the Shell”, and “I’ve heard that mainland Chinese are perfectly fine with Iron Fist.” Well, great for them. This isn’t about them.

This is about us. Asian-Americans. Asian-Canadians. Asian-Australians. Asian hyphen something. And the Asians in Asia don’t understand - because they can’t. They’re surrounded by media portrayals of them. They never have to fight for representation because it’s always there. They have no idea what it’s like to live in a country that sees you as other, and then to have to go back to your home country, to have your parents tell you “this is you, this is your culture, your heritage” and you look upon the faces of your family and you see nothing of yourself in them. 

Asian-Americans are not the same as Asians who live in Asia. We live in a different culture. Our values, our beliefs, the experiences that shape our lives are separate. 

We want to see ourselves in western media because it’s what we grew up with. It’s what surrounds us. Sure, we can watch K-dramas and anime and Chinese/Taiwanese/Japanese/whatever dramas, and a lot of us do, but it’s still not us

We shouldn’t have to go watch Asian dramas just to see a part of us represented. We shouldn’t have to move to Asia just to be hired. 

We deserve to represent, and be represented, as ourselves.

What am I thinking? I’m thinking that I’m utterly selfish and I should’ve said no to you, but I never say no. And it’s selfish because… because I just take everything, and I don’t know anything, and I don’t know what I want, and how could I when all I ever do is say yes to everything?

‘The electric street-lamp may indeed be ignored, simply because it is so insignificant and transient. Fairy-stories, at any rate, have many more permanent and fundamental things to talk about.‘ (J.R.R. Tolkien in On Fairy-Stories)

‘In about ten minutes she reached it and found it was a lamp-post. As she stood looking at it, wondering why there was a lamp-post in the middle of a wood and wondering what to do next…’ (C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe)

  • “this is low tar.” “well, you barely knew her.” 
  • “merry christmas, mycroft.” “and a happy new year!”
  • “are you sure tonight’s a danger night?” “no, but then i never am. you have to stay with him, john.”
  • “he’s sherlock. how will we ever know what goes on in that funny old head?”
  • “shame on you, john watson.” “shame on me?” “mrs. hudson leave baker street? england would fall.”
  • “so she’s alive, then? how are we feeling about that?” “happy new year, john.”
  • “my brother has the brain of a scientist or a philosopher, yet he elects to be a detective. what might we deduce about his heart?” “i don’t know.” “neither do i. but initially, he wanted to be a pirate.”
  • “i don’t have friends. i’ve just got one.”
  • “sentiment?” “sentiment.”
  • “ready?” “yes.”
  • “you look sad. when you think he can’t see you.”
  • “sherlock, i don’t want the world believing-” “that i’m what?” “a fraud.”
  • “no, i know you’re for real.” “100 percent?” “well, nobody could fake being such an annoying dick all the time.”
  • “you’re wrong, you know? you do count. you’e always counted and i’ve always trusted you. but you were right. i’m not okay.” “tell me what’s wrong.” “molly, i think i’m going to die.” “what do you need?” “if i wasn’t everything that you think i am, everything that i think i am, would you still want to help me?” “what do you need?” 
  • “please, will you do this for me?” “do what?” “this phone call, it’s my note. it’s what people do, don’t they? leave a note?” “leave a note when?” “goodbye, john.”
  • “i’m a doctor, let me come through. let me come through, please. he’s my friend. he’s my friend, please.”
  • “you told me once that you weren’t a hero. um, there were times i didn’t even think you were human, but let me tell you this: you were the best man the most human human being that i’ve ever known and no one will ever convince me that you told me a lie. so there. i was so alone and i owe you so much.“
  • “i’m not lonely, sherlock.” “how would you know?”
  • “i hope you’ll be very happy, molly hooper. you deserve it.”
  • “please john, forgive me for all the hurt i caused you.”
  • “look, i find it difficult. i find it difficult, this sort of stuff.” “i know.” “you were the best and the wisest man that i have ever known. yes, of course i forgive you.”

  • “into battle.”
  • “i thanked him for the trust he placed in me and indicated that i was, in some ways, very close to being…moved by it.”
  • “you- you mean-” “yes.” “i’m your…best…” “man.” “-friend?” “yeah, of course you are. of course you’re my best friend.”
  • “the point i’m trying to make is that i am the most unpleasant, rude, ignorant and all-round obnoxious arsehole that anyone could possibly have the misfortune to meet. i am dismissive of the virtuous, unaware of the beautiful, and uncomprehending in the face of the happy. so if i didn’t understand i was being asked to be best man, it is because i never expected to be anybody’s best friend. certainly not the best friend of the bravest and kindest and wisest human being i have ever had the good fortune of knowing.”
  • “john, i am a ridiculous man, redeemed only by the warmth and constancy of your friendship.”
  • “what’s wrong? what happened? why are you all doing that? john? did i do it wrong?” “no, you didn’t. come here.”
  • “clever?” “i’d say so.” “you would? am i important?” “to some people.”
  • “not you! not you! not you! you. it’s always you. john watson, you keep me right.”
  • “we wouldn’t do that, would we- you and me? we would never do that to john watson.”
  • “how dare you throw away the beautiful gifts you were born with? and how dare you betray the love of your friends?”
  • “human error.”
  • “hello, redbeard. they’re putting me down too, now. it’s no fun, is it?”
  • “john will cry buckets and buckets. it’s him that i worry about the most.”
  • “your loss would break my heart.” “what the hell am i supposed to say to that?”
  • “oh, sherlock. what have you done?”
  • “john, there’s something i should say, i’ve meant to say always and then never have. since it’s unlikely we’ll ever meet again, i might as well say it now. sherlock is actually a girl’s name.”
  • “to the very best of times.”
  • “you’ve been reading john’s blog. the story of how you met.”
  • “wherever i find him, whatever back alley or doss house, there will always be a list.”
  • “there’s always the two of us. don’t you read the strand?”
  • “since when do you call me john?” “you’d be surprised.” “no, i wouldn’t.”
  • “sherlock. promise me?”
  • “doctor watson? look after him, please?”
  • “you just like this dog, don’t you?” “well, i like you.”
  • “your life is not your own. keep your hands off it, do you hear me?”
  • “you can keep your scars.”
  • “well, that’s interesting.” “what is?” “the way you think.” “superbly?” “sweetly.” “i’m not sweet, i’m just high.”
  • “he’s not about thinking, not sherlock. no, no. he’s more emotional, isn’t he?” 
  • “i’m gonna make a deduction.” “oh, okay, that’s good.” and if my deduction is right, you’re gonna be honest, and tell me, okay?” “okay. though i should mention that it is possible for any given text alert to become randomly attached to-” “happy birthday.” “thank you, john. that’s…very kind of you.” 
  • “it’s okay.” “it’s not okay.” “no. but it is what it is.” 

Because i can never keep it simple… FML…..

Having a partner who isn't a witch

-“You made the room smell like a temple again”
- “why do you have so many candles?”
- “why do you have so many jars?”
- “The floor is covered in salt again”
- “why is there salt in the bed!?”
- “which god is that?”
- “if you’re psychic what am I thinking right now?”
-“yes I was thinking about boobs how did you know?”
- “sage smells like marijuana”
- “why do you have so many tarot cards?”
- “It’s just a rock….”
- “Do you really have to burn 6 sticks of incense at once? You’ll set off the fire alarm”
- “why is there herbs in the linen?”
- “why is there flowers in my underwear drawer?”
-“Why is there a bowl of rocks on the table?”
-“our house smells like a herbal store”
-“what are those jars of green stuff?”
-“what is this jar of random things doing at our front door?”

Day Sixty-Eight

-I am coming to terms with the fact that I need to get better at distinguishing inanimate objects from human beings. On a separate and fully unrelated note, a small child in a full and immaculate Darth Vader costume stood perfectly still at the next lane for several minutes.

-As I looked at a small child to say hello, she immediately stuck out her tongue and blew a raspberry at me as a greeting. I have never been more proud in the entire 7474 days I have been on this earth.

-I handed a young boy a sticker. His mother prompted him to thank me. Instead, he stretched out his small fist full of popcorn as an offering. This is a much more meaningful show of gratitude in my eyes.

-I have not figured out what I am doing wrong, but I now know that the question “Would you like this in the bag or out?” is somehow inherently flawed. One guest answered, “Put it in the bag. Yes, just hand it to me.” Another replied, “That’s fine, thanks.” Another simply said, “No.” Communication seems to have not been a strong suit across the board today.

-I was truly blessed today in that I got to meet the happiest child on the face of the Earth. They spent the full transaction with their mouth wide open, revealing the only two teeth they had ever had in an enormous grin. I found myself unable to stop smiling and giggling to myself until this small bundle of contagious joy was well out of the store.

-My greatest pleasure in life is riding a small, motorized shopping cart through the store. This is where I am at peace and this is how I wish to spend my life.

-A woman went off on a five-minute speech about the sizes of her son’s pajamas. While she raised several valid points, I am afraid it was all for naught, as revolutionizing the fashion industry’s sizing system does not fall under the jurisdiction of a part time cashier.

-As I rang someone up, I heard a gruff man’s voice from behind me order me to give him small bills when the drawer opened. This turned out to have been his method of asking me to break a hundred for him. I would like to inform the world as a whole that this is arguably the second-worst way for one to ask for change.

-While organizing the card wall, I found that someone had torn open an NFL hat model mystery package. They left behind the hat and the display stand, having only taken the wrapper itself. This is a collector who truly knows what the real rare item is. I defy anyone to find a better wrapper collection than this ingenious shoplifter.

Romanized Korean in Kpop Fanfics

I get it. Sometimes when you’re writing a Kpop fanfic, you want to make the experience as authentic for the reader as possible. And what better way to do that than to throw the occasional Korean in here and there?

Romanized Korean is great; there are certain colloquial things in Korean that you just can’t translate into English. So yes, all the power to you writers out there using romanized Korean - kudos to you for trying to incorporate another language into your writing in a way that makes your story flow more naturally in a certain cultural setting. But are you doing it correctly?

I can’t tell you how much I cringe when I find a well-written fic and am enjoying it… when the author drops some misused romanized Korean smack in the middle. For those of you scrunching their noses at this post and thinking, “What’s the big deal? It’s just a fic. Just ignore it.” I’d like to point out that yes it is slightly insulting when someone misuses your language, acts like it’s not a big deal, and continues to misuse your language even if they may or may not know that they are misusing it.

So to spread awareness on using proper romanized Korean, I am uploading this post to share several common mistakes that fanfic writers tend to make.

Hope you find this helpful!

[-AH/-YAH]

- “Jongin-yah”x “Hwasa-ah”×
- Can you tell me why these are wrong?
- If these sound right to you, you are probably not using these suffixes correctly.
- RULE: -ah is used with names that end in a consonant sound while -yah is used with names that end in a vowel sound.
- RULE: you should only use -ah/-yah when directly addressing someone.
- “Jungkook-ah, we really need to hang out sometime!“
- “Hani-yah, let’s go study at the library later today.” 
- NEVER use these suffixes in the object form/to refer to someone.
- “Did our Sungmin-ah sleep well last night?”x 
- "I was with Sunny-yah at the club yesterday.“x

[JAGI]

- Personally, I dislike seeing ‘jagi’ in fanfics because it does translate into ‘Honey’ or ‘Sweetheart’ and other similar terms of endearment. But if you must use it for whatever reason, make sure you’re using it correctly!
- “Our jagi-yah looks so cute today!”x
- “Is our jagi-yah sick?”x
- This is such a common mistake.
- As in the previous lesson, ‘jagi’ ends with a vowel sound, therefore the appropriate ending is? Yup. -Yah.
- So why is the above example wrong?
- As in the previous lesson, you should ONLY use -yah after ‘jagi’ when you are directly addressing someone and not commenting on their appearance/condition/etc.
- “Jagi-yah, let’s go eat something yummy today~”
- “I bought a pretty necklace for our jagi.”

[-IE]

- “I went on a date with Suhoie-ah yesterday.”x
- That actually killed me to type.
- RULE: Unlike -ah/-yah, you can use -ie in the object form/to refer to someone and to comment on someone’s appearance/condition/etc.
- RULE: Only use -ie if the name ends with a consonant sound.
- “Have I ever introduced you to Sebomie?”
- “Jiminie performed so well on stage today.”
- “Did you get Youngjaeie’s number?”x
- NEVER use -ie and -ah/-yah together
- “Kim Soohyunie-yah is my kdrama crush!”x
- Just. No.
- NEVER use the suffixes -ah/-yah outside of Kpop fanfics.  -ie is okay.
- For example, when commenting on a music video:
- “Sehunie is so good looking” is perfectly fine.
- “Kihyun-ah sings so well!” is not since you’re commenting on a quality of his and not directly addressing him.

[ANNYEONG/UMMA/ETC.]

- “Annyeong! Jeoneun Irene ibnida!”x
- Lit. Translated: “Hello! I am Irene!”
- Bottom line is, if you can translate directly into English, I implore you to stay away from romanized Korean.
- You might as well just type your whole story in Korean if you’re going to use romanized Korean so heavily.
- “Umma, how have you been?“x
- Lit. Translated: “Mom, how have you been?”
- PLEASE DON’T USE SARANGHAEYO IN YOUR FIC OR I WILL FIND YOU AND-
- ahem
- Sorry.  It needed to be said.
- Honestly speaking, using romanized Korean in your fics isn’t completely necessary.  If your story setting is in Korea and the majority of your characters are Korean, then it’s assumed that they are speaking Korean even though you’re writing in English.  You don’t see professional Dramafever subtitles using -ah/-yah or oppa in their subs do you?


Anywaaaaaays happy fanfic writing and I hope this wasn’t too confusing :)

Note: I am Korean
