I have seriously forgotten how to deal with crushes/potential relationship type things. 

And this could be nothing….but it might not be. 

Why has it been five years!? I could seriously have done with some practice for now. Hmmm. 

To all the Tumblr users who tend to use tags very liberally:

thejadedkiwano:

Let’s play a game.

Type the following words into your tags box, then post the first automatic tag that comes up.

you, also, what, when, why, how, look, because, never

AND FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN CINEMA HISTORY AN AMERICAN MADE MOVIE SWAPS FANATICAL PATRIOTISM FOR BASIC HUMAN DECENCY EVEN THOUGH THE MOVIE ITSELF IS CALLED CAPTAIN AMERICA AND IT DOESN’T GET ANY MORE PATRIOTIC THAN THAT BUT MARVEL CHOSE A DIFFERENT PATH AND I’M THANKFUL FOR THAT pardon my capslock

and in a fantastic plot twist, the answer was not to nuke the enemy

Ahhh, little Boosh fandom makes me happy :).

We’re small, but perfectly formed, and it’s always easy to keep up with the tags. We have some ‘famous’ bloggers, but most people follow most people and there’s a genuine friendliness - we know each other’s names, we say happy buffday :). Even though…

Supernatural + objects questions
Impala: where do you feel most at home?
Bunker: what's your favourite thing about your home/workplace?
Samulet: what's one thing that has a lot of sentimental value to you and why?
Ruby's knife: what's one thing you're absolutely ruthless about?
Angel blade: what's one skill that you don't show people very often?
Angel tablet: what's one thing you're glad you know?
Demon tablet: what's one thing you wish you'd known earlier?
John's journal: who or what do you turn to when you need guidance?
John's leather jacket: do you ever feel you are trying to live up to someone else's standards?
Dean's leather jacket: what's one example of development or progress that you're proud of?
Bobby's flask: do you ever get too attached to things or people?
Cas's trenchcoat: what's one thing you wouldn't ever change about yourself?
Sam's checked shirts: what's one thing other people find cute about you?
Dean's mullet rock collection: what kind of music do you like?
The rainbow slinky: what's one thing somebody has done for you that you really appreciated?
Anti-possession tattoos: what's one thing that makes you feel safe?
The First Blade: what are your mechanisms for coping with pressure?
Grace: what's one thing you like about yourself?
Toilet paper: what's one thing you couldn't live without?

Once again, I’m impressed by the tenderness with which the writers have chosen to treat these two characters, and the skill with which the two actors approach them. You can’t help but root for Kurt and Blaine.

I’ve pondered this shot since TSOT aired. I kept wondering why we were shown the hug from this angle. At first I thought it had to do with John’s private nature, especially his private feelings about Sherlock: so private he can’t admit them to his therapist after Sherlock’s “death,” so private he makes sure Mrs. Hudson’s not watching before he touches Sherlock’s headstone. Here, he hides his face behind Sherlock’s before hugging him, and we get a private glimpse of his face full of adoration for his friend, but the guests do not.
Then I realized I had it backward. This shot isn’t about John hiding his face from the guests. When I don’t know how to understand a choice of cinematography, I usually think “What would I have meant by that choice?” And I realized that my wedding photography experience could indeed answer this question. It took me a long time to come up with because I don’t usually go behind the altar during the wedding ceremony, but I have done it enough to know that this is the kiss shot. This is the shot I do when the couple kiss. It’s one of the most important photographs to get of the wedding day; couples always, always request it. The usual way to do it is from the perspective of the guests, from the angle that most of Sherlock’s speech is filmed in TSOT, but this is a foreground-background connection: this is the shot I do when I want to show that the couple are celebrating their love in front of everyone they know. 
That’s what this shot is. It’s John showing how much he cares about Sherlock, in front of God and congregation, in front of and family and friends. Just because his face is hidden doesn’t mean he’s not demonstrating his feelings for all to see, here, for the very first time.

I’m sick of people wrongly defining bisexuality. It’s not ‘attraction to both men and women’ it’s about being attracted to ‘bi’ things like bicycles, binoculars, bilinguals and binary coding smh

So glad someone finally cleared this up.

Drawing people I know as pirates. Because… Fuck do I even need to explain myself anymore?

I wonder how glitteryrainbows feels about parasols.

Because I have been a TERRIBLE friend lately (fucking final year, man) I just thought I would catch up on tumblr posts that I might have missed and I found this gem! Basically” FUCK YEAH I LOVE PARASOLS! and am excite about this whole notion.

In reality I would make a pretty dreadful pirate cause I can’t even handle camping but it’s nice to think my mates can envision me being that badass <3
