Random Question \o/ What's your favorite TOS episode?? 😊
MMMMBOY! I’m GLAD YOU ASKED!!!!!
DID SOMEONE SAY
THIS EPISODE. FUCK. YOU KNOW??? THIS EPISODE???? WHERE SPOCK FREAKS OUT BECAUSE JIM IS IN DANGER??? WHERE THE ENTIRE POINT OF STAR TREK IS COMMUNICATED IN FIFTY MINUTES OF PURE GAY DELIGHT AND MEANINGFUL ALLEGORIES???? WHERE THEY LEARN TO COMMUNICATE WITH A CREATURE SO ENTIRELY UNLIKE THEMSELVES THAT THE MERE FACT THEY CAN COMMUNICATE WITH IT IS NOTHING SHORT OF A MIRACLE (thank you, Spock). WHERE THERE’S A MOMENT WHEN JIM WANTS TO BE ANGRY WITH SPOCK AND HE PHYSICALLY CAN’T BECAUSE SPOCK IS SO CUTE WITH HIS PROBABILITIES AND STATISTICS????
I’m SO sorry for the capslock but I cannot cannot cannot tell you how important this episode is to me. It encapsulates every single thing I love about the series. It has beautiful moments between my boys, a beautiful message, and ends on such a positive note. If I could play this episode on loop for the rest of my life and never watch anything else, I would be content.
Thank you so much for asking. I will NEVER pass up an opportunity to talk about The Devil in the Dark.
EXCLUSIVE || One Direction Star Harry Styles’ Recipes for Success
Styles’ first single “Sign of the Times” to premiere on BBC Radio 1′s Breakfast Show on April 7th
This One Direction star has a sit-down with we of the AAS and spills the deets on the surprising inspiration behind his new solo career!
Harry Styles (23) of the wildly popular One Direction has at long last abandoned his reclusive ways and returned to the folds of society from his top-secret celebrity abode to release a single this coming Friday the 7th of April.
But even a mere 48 hours before the release of his debut single, fans are still confused about what the song might even be about. One anonymous fan commented,
“The cover art for the single honestly scares me a bit. It’s so red! Is it supposed to look like the world is on fire? I mean that’s what mine FEELS like whenever Harry does anything but like, is that what he’s going for? And the title is so apocalyptic. Is he trying to tell us his single is going to bring about the apocalypse? Because like, I believe him, but I also don’t want to die before I’ve heard the rest of his album, you feel?”
Another fan was adamant, and said, “Oh it’s just Harry trying to let us know about his home planet. None of us know exactly where it is or what it looks like, but all that red is supposed to bring up Mars and Martians. He’s been away from his alien family for a long time now, you know? I’m sure he’s feeling homesick.”
Styles recently reaching out and attempting to make contact with his alien relatives in space
We reached out to the star to get his side of things, and Styles explained:
title is actually a reference to an experience I had one morning. I had
just come back from my morning run, back in the LA home, right? I
remember the weather was just lovely. The afternoon heat hadn’t set in
yet because it was still pretty early in the morning, but the sky was
this beautiful shade of blue that reminded me of Lou’s eyes…And uh,
usually I have a smoothie after my run, see, but when I got home and
opened the drawer in the fridge to find the kale…because like,
everything in the fridge is really carefully organized…there was
nothing there! I swear I’d gone to the store and picked up some
more, but I couldn’t find anything, and I had no idea what I was
supposed to do. Like, how could I have a smoothie without kale blended
into it, you know? And then I was like, uh, struck by inspiration and
right there in our open-concept kitchen I jotted down the
beginnings of the single.”
Styles on set recently filming his introspective music video
Styles intends to go in a different direction for the single’s music video, however.
Some rather curious pics came out recently, showcasing the young star
flying high in the sky with the help of cables and a harness hooked up
to a helicopter. Styles explained,
“I eat a lot of free-range grain-fed organic chicken, because it’s
good for building muscle, and with this album generally I really wanted to focus
on exploring my relationship with the food I consume, and like, figuring
out where my sources of nutrition come from you know? So I decided to
focus on that in the music video, instead.
I really wanted to like,
understand the bird’s perspective, you know? I needed that connection. But to do that I had to become the bird, so they hooked me up to a helicopter and I really get them,
now. I feel a lot closer to the birds. They’re like a part of me, and I’ve become one of them. It’s a really beautiful feeling.”
Styles maintaining his natural diet with an order of salad with salad on the side
be honest,” the singer confessed, “I try to eat as little meat as
possible. I prefer to get my protein from plants or powder blended into
my smoothies. I feel bad about eating the poor animals. They didn’t
like, ask to be eaten, you know? Especially now that I understand my
main source of animal protein so intimately.
That day with the
helicopters on set changed me. I’m a changed man. I just hope the fans will be able to experience that same kind of change when they watch the music video. I’m so excited about it. It’s definitely one of my greatest accomplishments so far as an artist.”
The namesake of Styles’ album, “Bullet”
star continued, “You know, the name of the album is actually inspired by the
name of my smoothie blender. It’s a Magic Bullet. It was originally a
gift, because I don’t have a lot of time in the morning and it’s
convenient, but it’s more than just a smoothie maker now. It’s changed
my life and my art. I just wanted to convey that in my album.
fact, the second single we have planned is one about juice cleansing
with smoothies from my Magic Bullet. Smoothies from Booster Juice just
aren’t the same, you know? The company just doesn’t understand the artistry. It isn’t
just a food. It’s an experience. A way of life. Art in its truest form.
There’s a lot of raw emotion in this album, I think. Just like the raw vegetables I try to sneak onto Lou’s plate. It’s a work in progress. Getting Lou to eat raw vegetables, I mean. Not the album. The album is done, I promise!”
Tomlinson eating a hamburger in the middle of a concert that a fan threw on stage
The star has received a huge outpouring of support for his solo efforts from fans, industry names, and his loved ones alike, but Styles reveals it doesn’t extend to all corners of his life.
“I’m in the process of trying to transition Lou and I into an all-raw vegan diet, but he isn’t interested, even when I’ve explained to him the benefits. He just says ‘Sure, love,’ and meets up with the boys to go get some MacDonald’s”.
Tomlinson and his recent collaboration partner Aoki playing a game of collab goals
Louis Tomlinson (25), Styles’ long-term partner of seven years is well known for his disdain of new-age healthy eating trends. Even his love and respect for his friend Steve Aoki (39) didn’t stop Tomlinson from expressing his distaste towards Aoki’s answer of “cold pressed green juices” as his favourite snack.
Styles added, “I’m really grateful for Steve. I think he could be a good influence on Louis’ eating habits. I just wish Lou would let him. I’m beginning to think Lou might be a lost cause. Every time I tell him he needs more green in his life, he just says I’m all the green he needs.
It’s really romantic, but I see him eat his Spaghetti-Os on toast while I’m eating my garden salad and I worry about his cholesterol, or that he might develop diabetes.”
Styles on the Breakfast Show on BBC’s Radio 1
So what can fans look forward to in the future from soloist Harry Styles?
“I can’t say much, but fans should keep an eye out for a companion book for the album. It’s just being finalized now. Let’s just say the book involves step-by-step instructions and lots of pictures, all of which I took. And food. Lots of food. I’ve been getting Lou to test out the instructions in the book to see if they’re easy enough to follow. I’m excited. I really wish I could tell you more but…
Okay. It’s a recipe book. It’s a recipe book with recipes I was thinking about when I was writing and recording the album. It’s vegan and gluten-free, and I hope everybody loves the recipes. I’ll be keeping an eye on social media to see how people make out with the dishes! So I hope the fans watch out for that in the near future!”
Needless to say the star’s solo debut will be massive, so stick around with the AAS for the next big story!
(Massive thanks to everybody in the AAS gc because, as usual, I couldn’t do this without y’all and this goes out to all of you lovely wonderful people. Credits to @organicstunts for nabbing me the pictures and to any of you guys whose quotes I put into the article. Enjoy! 😘❤️)
i just wanna get in my feelings for a second & shout-out all the writers who are Writing Themselves into their characters just so they can see themselves represented in the media they love ?like holy crap you guys, this one’s for all the writers who are Working Overtime to infuse their own experiences into their characters, who are laboring with love to give themselves the representation they don’t see, who are enduring bullshit & hate & concern trolling & ignorance & ugliness for daring to write what they know & what they want to see ?this one’s for the jewish writers who got tired of scraping together ‘hints’ that were more like bad stereotyping, this one’s for the trans writers who’ve given their characters incredible backstories & strength, this one’s for the kids who grew up Never Thinking Anybody Could Look Like Them so they decided to let their favorite character be like them instead.
just know that i love all of you & i see you & your crazy hard work, you’re visible to me, YOU ARE NOT SELF-INSERTS, you are not selfish or lazy creators or fad-chasers or erasers ~ or whatever other bullshit you hear from people who’ve had the lifetime luxury of seeing themselves on every tv & movie screen, you’re important to me, you’re special to me, so are your characters, so are their experiences, they’re unique & so so so so vital to this community &y’all are amazing !!!
The sip of sake you had been trying to
swallow came abruptly back up your nose as the meaning finally filtered through
the buzzed haze to take root. Inuchiyo’s eyebrows knitted together even as you
stumbled, catching your arm with a single, large hand and pounding on your back
with enough force to knock you forward another step, as nonchalant as though he
hadn’t just suggested the two of you
burn down the Magistrate’s house. You wheezed around the inhaled sake, trying
frantically to get enough air to explain why that was a terrible idea, but your childhood friend continued on regardless.
“Wouldn’t be too hard. Come on, let’s go, let’s go find some matches.“
“No!” You swerved, and reached for
him, “Noooo, no no no.” His hand was still on your arm, but you
turned into it to seize the front of his robes, “No matches, bad—.”
You lost your balance again, and his other
hand found your shoulder, holding you steady against the influence to
sway. For a brief moment, you blinked at him, having sort of…vaguely forgotten
what you had been talking about, and trying to understand why his expression
was so troubled.
“Listen…that, that rat bastard, he tried—”
Inuchiyo began, smile gone. You didn’t like that expression. He looked like a
forlorn puppy—that made you giggle, albeit guiltily—but it also made your heart
hurt, so you rose to your toes, hand lifting to pat his head, which he jerked
back in surprise, “—Hey!” though you just leaned forward. “Cut that out!”
His hair was surprisingly soft, and so you
ran your fingers through it, letting the dark, silken strands flow over and
around your fingers, and repeating the motion. So soft! “Your hair’s a…a birdnest,” You mumbled, and your other
hand joined the first to try and smooth it, but getting equally distracted
playing with it instead. A mirthful giggle squeaked past your lips. Toshiie
spluttered, cheeks brilliantly red—had they been like that before? “You gotta…work
on your sa..sake tolerance, ‘nuchiyo.”—and the hands on your shoulders spasmed
“What? Hey! I don’t wanna hear that from
you, Miss Stumbling Sandals, geez.” He turned his head to the side and your
hand slipped free—you missed the sensation, and tried to reach again, but
already on your toes and leaning forward, lost your balance completely. He caught
you as easily as an afterthought, and equally carelessly bent over, arm
shifting around the curve of your hip to your thighs, and tossed you up to his
It was your turn to shriek in surprise, arms
scrambling for a grip and settling around his head, earning a muffled protest
you didn’t hear. Inuchiyo spluttered, then sighed. “Inuchiyo, pumme down!”
“No, you’re drunk.”
“I’m better at it.”
“Only ‘cause you…you’ve got more practice.”
You thought you heard a murmur of let’s keep it that way and leaned over
to be sure. Your hands pressed onto their grip and suddenly you were distracted and pleased to have access to his hair again, which you gleefully returned
to playing with—“Quit that!”
your fingers through it one last time, peering down, and you sulked for a
moment before blinking around at your new vantage. “Hey…woah, Inuchiyo, you’re really…” Your head tilted curiously, “You’re reaaaaally tall.”
This earned a smile. “What, you just noticed?”
“I can see the Magistrate’s house!” You were
looking at it, so didn’t see the sudden scowl below. Something flickered
through your mind, a memory, or a thought, and you seized it, lowering your
hands to his shoulders, “Inuchiyo! Inuchiyo let’s…let’s burn it down!”
A ferocious smile, and he shifted his grip,
lowering you so when your head turned his forehead met yours. You smiled and
leaned into him, arms going lax into a sleepy grip around his shoulders, and
the ferocity faded into something helpless. You forgot, by the time he answered softly, what he was agreeing to. “Yeah, okay.”
You cheered anyway, “Woohoo!” His hands opened, then closed, restless but
occupied with keeping you off the ground, but as though they wanted to do
something else, and his eyes left your face to look in troubled exasperation at your
hair. You, following the line of his eyes, let your head drop, and tucked against his chest, snuggling to the warmth of him and calmed by the strong, steady beat you found there. “I’m sleepy.”
He sighed. “Yeah, I know. We’re going home.” You
dreamed of fields of soft grass and smiles, and the low, guilty-but-not murmur
of your ma is gonna kill me…

I would like to request ftm trans!draco coming out to Narcissa/ them bonding! thank you so much ilu <3
Hi my love ♡ I hope it’s okay!
Draco couldn’t do this.
He had dreamed about how he would tell his mom - make
her dinner, buy her flowers and hug her tight.
Just in case she didn’t want to hug him ever again.
He would tell it to her slowly, breaking the news as
carefully as possible.
(Anything to save her from an imminent heart attack.)
He had made a speech, wrote it down on paper in the
middle of the night, the paper stained with tears because he couldn’t focus on
anything but the fact that his mother is
going to hate him.
Pansy had calmed him down from several panic attacks, Blaise
had basically just told him to “suck it up and tell them” and he was still
convinced that he’d rather jump into the Hogwarts lake and be drowned by the
giant squid than go through with this – because oh dear Merlin he couldn’t do this.
But he couldn’t back down now.
Because his mother was standing in front of him, her
hands full of clippings he’d stashed in his room, his binder wrapped over her
wrist and – oh no.
“Love,” his mother began, slowly, looking up from the
muggle Trans Teenagers magazine
clippings, “what’s this?”
He had prepared a speech. He was going to do it, but
he wasn’t ready now – he couldn’t do it, he couldn’t he couldn’t he couldn’t –
He had to.
“I’m..” he took a deep breath, looking down at his
hands. “I’m sorry, mother.”
“Darling,” she started again, her voice slightly off,
as if she was on the verge of tears. “Are you – is this –“
It felt like there was a hippogriff on his chest now,
pressing down on him until all he could do was choke. Please, please, she’s going to hate me - “I – yes, mother, I –“ why
couldn’t he breathe, he needed to breathe
–“I’m so, so sorry that – I didn’t mean to –“
Then, suddenly, she lurched forward and wrapped
herself around him.
She hugged Draco tight to her chest, locking her arms
around him and her head against his hair – crying and kissing his forehead,
whispering impossible things to him, “shh, darling, it’s okay, I’m here –“
“Mom,” Draco sobbed, hugging her tightly. His heart
was going bonkers. Was this really
happening? “I’m not your –“
“You’re my child,”
Narcissa said through the tears, firmly and clearly. “And that’s all that
Draco hiccoughed a laugh, a broken one but it felt
real, and he buried his face deep in her chest. She didn’t hate him – she was
hugging him, she wasn’t appalled, she wasn’t locking him up – he couldn’t
believe this he couldn’t –
“And I think,” Narcissa continued softly, “that your
father has always wanted a son, anyway.”
They both snorted at the same time, and then started
Because at the moment, it was fine. Draco could
finally breathe in deeply, knowing that whatever his father would say, he’d be
able to go through it, to keep standing and face him, knowing that his mother
was right there beside him to hold his hand.
“I love you,” he murmured finally, and she squeezed
I just wanted to tell you guys that I won’t be there until wednesday~ There’s a screening of Warcraft and Q&A with Duncan Jones in London next week and I thought it’d be a good occasion to pay a visit to one of my favorite cities~
