shirin’s elisabeth 15 day challenge
day 5: your favorite luigi lucheni and why
he was my first lucheni and he defined the role for me. he is sardonic, cynical, entertaining, but over the course of the musical you can see that facade shatter slowly and at the end you see a much more human side that the character is hiding to avoid dealing with his horrible actions. serkan brings this out wonderfully and he has an incredible voice to boot.
he’s being fucking paid to be pretend to be a dragon
that’s 7-year old me’s fucking dream
His smile is somewhere between demonically terrifying and really really hot.
I just keep watching…
look at how in control of his body he is
sometimes i really can’t consolidate the amazing actor with… this… nerd……
George R.R. Martin is ruthless - every death in the Game of Thrones series is tabbed
im not even in the GOT fandom but how the fuck are any of you still breathing
I find that if you begin by assuming every single person you meet will die gruesomely within the next five pages then the entire story is really quite a pleasant surprise

Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
This is actual bullshit.
You need money to live. The sad fact is, most writers/artists/otherwise creative types will always have to have a “day job” in order to have said warm apartment + computer + cat. Rent costs money. Electricity costs money. Food costs money. Laptops cost a fuckton of money. Cats need to go to the vet as well as cat food and a littler box, and vet bills cost three fucktons of money.
Want a family? You need even more than a bed and a laptop. Which, you guessed it, costs money.
Most people can’t afford the capital to start a yarn shop. Most people will never be approved for the loan it will take to start a yarn shop. 50 to 70 percent of small businesses fail within the first 18 months (statistic taken from Business Insider).
Some people are skilled AND lucky enough to make a living from their art. This is an awesome thing. It has to be said, though, these people are rare compared to the floods of people who don’t make a living from their art.
I’m not saying don’t follow your passion. I’m saying that you may have to work really hard at something you don’t enjoy as much in order to provide the circumstances under which you can ALSO do the thing(s) about which you are passionate.
I really, really wish people would stop perpetuating this terrible and sometimes destructive notion that working a regular job is somehow beneath you if you’re a creative type. “Do what you love!” seems to imply that you will spend the rest of your life feeling fulfilled and bubbling over with joy because you’re living out your dreams. That’s not how it works. Work is work, and even if you’re making a living following your dream, it will still be work, and there will be days when it’s not fun.
If you’re not making a living following your dream, that is also okay, and don’t let anyone else make you feel bad about it. You do what you need to do in order to keep a roof over your head, food in your stomach, and your family (whatever sort of family you have) provided for. Pursue your passion when you can, and take joy in it when you can.
Fucking THANK YOU.
I’M NOT GONNA LIE THIS RIGHT HERE WOULD BE AN AMAZING STORY IDEA
LIKE HOLY HELL IMAGINE A SECRET SERVICE OF WISH AGENTS, EACH ONE SPECIALLY DESIGNATED TO CARRY OUT A CERTAIN PERSON’S WISH
I WANT THIS TO BECOME A THING PRONTO
If anyone ever asks me to define love, I’m just going to show them this.
DO NOT YELL AT ME FOR SAYING SORRY TOO MUCH BECAUSE I WILL ACCIDENTALLY APOLOGIZE EVEN MORE AND SORRY
