it’s not a fanfic until the dress hugs her curves perfectly, his eyes scan the crowd and find her and their tongues battle for dominance
The Boxtrolls (2014) | Behind the Scenes
via Animation Magazine:
- 1 week; the average amount of time for an animator to complete 3.7 seconds of footage
- 3.5 inches, the cuff-to-cuff measurement of baby Eggs’ sweater (created on an embroidery machine to produce irregular lines, like a hand-knitted garment). His little socks are only ⅝” long
- 4 scenes per week was the goal for each animator
- 14 different fabrics were used in Lord Portley-Rind’s white hat
- 24 kinds of weeds were created for backgrounds by the greens department
- 55 different sculpts of prop cheeses were made; different scale sizes were needed for wide, medium and close shots
The 7th image… oh man..how do they animate water so that the wave lights animate alongside the character animation?? Is that some 3D printed water right there that they switch out over and over??? A light projection thru glass? Dying to know how it works. Everything about how Laika makes movies is real actual magic
Watching Star Trek as an adult shines new light on why my dad used to look really uncomfortable sometimes during our late-night marathons.

@simonpegg: Whenever I see a grown man wearing Crocs, I always wonder exactly when it was they gave up on life.
get the fuck out of here
"One minute I’m homeless. The next I’m still homeless, but I’m in a tuxedo, on my way to the Oscars, stopping at a coffee shop to brush my teeth because I don’t have running water. The next minute, Jack Nicholson, someone I’ve admired my entire life, is right in front of me saying my name. Then he’s saying the names of two movies I did and I’m like, ‘Jesus, all I wanted to do was be in a movie that would play in a big enough theatre that my family would get to see it. And now this.’ What can I say? It’s weird."
I made a post about this but I had to illustrate it too because it’s too darn cute for health.
OMG just … Idek.
I sort of work on things as I feel like it, which basically means I’ve got folders full of WIPs that I work on sporadically. At the moment what I have open in Open Office is another Cruise/Pegg RPF and a potential sequel to Trust, Openness and Honesty (a Sulu/Chekov/Scotty fic that’s like four years old, but whatever - NEVER TOO LATE).
I’d love to write more Benji/Brandt for M:IGP fandom. I have vague ideas of ways to continue the Bendt Series, but they are just that - extremely vague.

My favourite Scotty pairing is, forever and always, Scotty/Chekov. I have a huge age-disparity kink. Also accents, mmm.
As for my favourite Scotty fic, I love Science and Reason because of its intricate plot. It’s the most complicated fic I’ve ever written and it was an uphill battle putting all the pieces together. It’s far from perfect, but it’s my baby (getting it done was like birthing a brain baby, for real).

Every time I post something about Norman Reedus and it gets reblogged you fangirls just gotta swoon and add your own cutesy caption. Nothing against fangirls but here’s a challenge. Swoon over this! Good luck.
OP, it is clear that you have a fundamental misunderstanding of one or more of the following:
I mean we could probably use this as a really interesting launching point for the fundamental disconnect between ‘what people actually find hot’ and ‘what society/patriarchy presumes is hot’ and how the assignations of gender roles and sexuality fuck with that. Like the presumption that the female gaze doesn’t even exist, or if it does that women-intersted-in-men find the same things about men sexy that men-interested-in-women presume they do/should.
I mean, how many ‘porn for straight women’ magazines have tried to launch and asked a bunch of straight women what they wanted in porn -and gotten answers of ‘smiling dudes’ ‘dudes giving bedroom eyes’ and ‘cock’ - only to then said ‘yeah no, we’re giving you tough,aloof-looking shirtless guys with power muscles and weapons instead (because regardless of what any of you say you want we know that the majority of you want tough looking guys with power muscles and weapons because that’s what masculinity is because sexiness is feminine-coded. I mean obviously the only reason a man would display in a sexually-inviting way (as opposed to an aggressive way or a disinterested way) is if he’s trying to attract a man! Ergo anything in which a man is display in a sexually inviting or (gasp) submissive way is gay gay gay gay gay and thus the anti-masculine and no woman would ever want it. We know better than you what you like and want and find sexy) and then failed and blamed the failure on the totally legit and well known phenomenon that women just don’t get off on visual stimuli they’d rather read erotica.
But I’m too busy getting off on images like the above.
