Buy her books!!!

She won that season too!  She’s so cool and upbeat

Despite being cool.and upbeat (and she is) she also suffers from anxiety and recently started speaking about it in social media. Instagram posta detailing her inability to even go downstairs and how support her fam are etc. She also recently did a bbc documentary about anxiety disorders.

Nadiya is also a perfect example of why diversity in media is important. A government report on community cohesion said she’s done “more for British-Muslim relations than 10 years of government policy”, because her presence on TV has helped to humanize the image of the hijab-wearing Muslim woman in the eyes of the public.

She’s not even really a political activist or anything - she’s just a nice, honest, down-to-earth person. Sometimes that’s all it really takes to convince people.

She has her own series on Netflix now!

YALL ITS GOOD

statue of King Arthur on the top of Tintagel cliffs

I love this, in a beautiful way it’s only half there and kinda ethereal, which is as it should be since the legends and theories about Arthur are many but there’s not a lot of certainty.

Wasn’t quite such good weather the day I was there - which meant my photos have a very different atmosphere!

@cosmicvoodoo

It’s not just that he is ethereal, but that he is a part of the land, and the land is part of him.

nie huaisang found out about the family curse and the inevitability of each of its leaders’ declines and why they all believed it was necessary and was like oh ill deviate all right. deviate from tradition

Nie Huaisang would survive every single horror movie by not doing the brave, honorable, trope-following thing like ever. His house starts making weird noises? He moves out. Mysterious shadow? Definitely not gonna go investigate that. What is upstairs? Don’t know, don’t care. There’s a legend about this town? Great, he needed to visit his 3rd cousin who lives on the other side of the country anyway.

silver-grasp:

Regarding the pacing and narrative setup of The Untamed, it is essential that you start with the first two episodes and I hate everyone who advises people to start with the third and watch it chronologically. This is not because it obscures the reveal (rewatching eps 1 and 2 at the relevant point in 33 is a good move actually), but because the first two episodes are critical in setting up the genre flip that takes place after Wen Ruohan’s death.

The first third of The Untamed is pretty straightforward fantasy - evil dark lord set on conquering everyone with the aid of Evil Magic, the heroes have to fight the Evil Magic and kill the Evil Dark Lord (I mean, it’s a little more complex than that, but the point remains). It’s also a little goofy - see the dancing fairy, the zombie puppets/orcs, the turtle snake etc. But after WRH is killed, there’s a brief moment of respite where you’re like phew, made it through that - and then you hear the screams. And suddenly it’s not WRH who’s the villain. The story doesn’t end when the Evil Dark Lord dies, it just makes room for a different, far more banal form of evil in the character of Jin Guangshan (and Jin Guangyao). And, in my opinion, this genre flip is a huge part of the brilliance of The Untamed, with its meta-themes on narrative.

But you can’t pull a bait-and-switch like that with no setup - for one thing, you risk losing audiences who think the Evil Dark Lord plot is stupid, and two, that’s not how good plot twists work - which is where the first two episodes come into play. The very first shot of the show is Nightless City pt 2, with WWX on the cliff, tears running down his face, as he lets himself fall backwards to his death, while the voiceover tells us about how great it is that the clans banded together and killed him. There’s an immediate dissonance there, between what we see and what we hear - a suicide versus an execution - and it’s instantly intriguing. We then meet WWX post-resurrection, where despite some questions we might have about his powers and what he’s doing with them, he… does not seem like the insane murderer he’s described as. At all. This desire to figure out how the hell we got to that cliff scene, and how the narrative got written the way it did, carries us through the whole early Evil Dark Lord plot. Early on, you think that he’s going to be corrupted into evil too, or something along those lines.

And then we learn that WWX was called a ruthless killer who delighted in killing people for no reason, not because he ever actually did that, but because he spoke up against those in power who did.

And that’s the brilliance of CQL’s pacing.

Whumptober - Day 18: Wrongfully Accused (full series on ao3)

-

They accused him of indifference.

Lan Wangji, Hanguang-jun; the one who was always where the chaos was, who walked on the righteous path…Wei Wuxian couldn’t believe anyone would believe them, but apparently people did.

Apparently, there were people stupid enough to look at his wooden face and make assumptions about his character, and never mind his reputation, never mind his history, never mind anything – a scowl and a serious look, and people will believe anything.

Believe it enough to act on it, and really Wei Wuxian shouldn’t be surprised but somehow he was.

Hmm….

Nie Huaisang has favorites among his fans. Some have the nicest designs, some are so comfortable to hold.

It’s none of these he finds himself returning to every time he has to interact with Jin Guangyao.

It was a rare frivolous present from Nie Mingjue, even rarer because it survived the fire.

Its edges are a little too uneven, the wood a little too rough. If he holds it too tight, he has to clean it later from the tiny bloody cuts it leaves.

He has to clean it very often.

That’s not much of a problem, though. It gives him time to calm the seething anger and hate that wells up every time he has to restrain himself from wrapping his hands around a murderer’s throat.

Over time, the continuous cleaning and oiling gently smooths the wood. Over time, the storm of negative emotions calms.

Over time, it finishes absorbing what it needs.

Nie Huaisang never notices when the fan gains an aura of its own, a gentle fog that misdirects people from things he doesn’t want them to see. He doesn’t notice when the tips sharpen, when the paper becomes a fine razor edge.

When the shield becomes a sword.

one of my mdzs headcanons is that after Wei WuXian dies on the burial mounds, Lan WangJi just doesn’t trust any adult cultivator. not really. they all were somewhat responsible for Wei Ying’s death, and that of innocent people with the wrong surname. so he just decides not to really talk to them or anything like that. his only exception are the juniors and kids. they are not at fault, and he will be an example to them. (the juniors obviously love admire him very much)

Prompt: in a world where Cangse Sanren and Wei Changze don't die what happens ? (please no sad ending I really can't survive angst) I love your writing btw 💗💓💞

“There’s no need to be nervous,” Wei Wuxian said, squeezing Lan Wangji’s hand encouragingly.

Then he squeezed it again, just because he could. Because Lan Wangji liked him, and he liked him back, and – it was a very good thing that he’d tricked Lan Wangji into confessing.

(That was his story of how it had happened and he was sticking with it.)

if anyone ever tries to tell you that the ancient greeks were more sophisticated than us, just remember that there was a ship war between plato and aeschylus over whether achilles or patroclus was the top in their relationship, while xenophon was off complaining that he didn’t ship that

“Is Achilles A Twink” - the greatest thread in the history of forums, locked by a moderator after 12,239 pages of heated debate,

I’m just dying while thinking about a hotel employee calmly Googling “How to fold a towel in the shape of an elephant,” and then going out to buy eye stickers.

I think these would guarantee return bookings.  Loving the elephant.

I worked in a hotel for a year. Hotel staff LOVE silly requests because otherwise our job is just mundane. It gives the front desk a chance to do something creative.

aaaa this is so lovely

acutebird-fics:

honestly the fact that lxc outplayed wwx a little in this scene is not talked about enough

OK we all talk about Wang Yibo’s micro expressions (and rightly so) but I don’t think Liu Haikuan gets enough credit for the subtle things he does with his face. Look at his facial journey in that seventh gif. It’s one thing to suspect that this masked person who dresses, talks, and behaves like Wei Wuxian is, in fact, Wei Wuxian; it’s another to actually see the face of a man you’ve thought was dead for more than a decade. I love the tiny “oh shit” moment Lan Xichen has before he can manage to put on his trademark Diplomatic Smile™. Smile or not, it’s clear that Lan Xichen is not feeling unalloyed happiness at the thought of WWX being back - you can see it again in the final gif in this set. He’s not going to say anything because he’s ride-or-die for his brother, but there’s a lot of shock and worry there under the surface. Liu Haikuan does a ton with very little in this scene and it’s amazing.
