What it says on the tin. I'm Nikki, I'm 26, I'm people-sexual, cisgender, white, and I ship things. A lot of things. All the things. From BroTP to OTP and everything in-between. It's just how I roll. So if I haven't scared you away yet, this is a massively multi-fandom blog and I'll do my best to keep it SFW. Have a party. Also, as a side note, I reblog giveaways, so if you don't want them on your dash, tumblr savoir 'giveaway'. I always tag them.

Guardians of the Galaxy is breaking box office records this weekend, but more importantly it’s breaking barriers in Hollywood by being the first Marvel script credited to a woman.
Guardians of the Galaxy is receiving remarkable reviews by critics and fans alike and is expected to take in over $90 million during its explosive opening weekend.
What’s more interesting is that Guardians of the Galaxy is the first Marvel film to have been written by a woman that’s actually received credit for their work.
Screenwriter Nicole Perlman has been on the rise for quite some time. She’s been included in up and coming screenwriter lists for years now and even did some work on Thor’s script, but she’s finally been given credit for being the screenwriter of Marvel’s latest film, which is being touted for its unique storyline.
In a recent interview with TIME magazine, Perlman explained her attempts to persuade studios to put their trust in a woman’s hands to write sci-fi, saying, “I was noticing that I was having trouble convincing people, when I was pitching on projects, that I would be capable of doing this. There was a little bit of an attitude of, ‘Well, you’re a woman, you’re not writing romantic comedies, we’ll give you the Marie Curie biopic.’”
Disclaimer: This is not my own idea; I got the tip from the lovely Elentari-liv, who was kind enough to share her technique with me. This is only showing the basics I’ve used to knit the scales, not how to make any certain piece.
Also, keep in mind that I’m still a beginner at knitting. I’ve been doing it for approximately two weeks.
What you’ll need:
- circular knitting needles
- small scales
You’ll probably want to choose a yarn close to your scale colour, or one that complements it (I used a contrasting one here to make things easier to show). You may have to experiment a bit with the yarn gauge and size of the needles. I ended up using gauge three yarn and size six needles after some testing. Larger needles widened the gap between scales, so that the yarn was visible in between, which I didn’t want, and thicker yarn made the scales stick out too much as opposed to hanging. It looked like I was knitting a very ruffled dragon.
Scales can be purchased from The Ring Lord, with multiple choices of colour and material. I’ve experimented with both aluminum and steel; the steel seems to hang better because of its weight, but it all depends on what you need for your project!
(I’m putting the actual process under a read more because I do have a lot of photos.)
I’m gonna go ahead and put this under the resources tag for reenactors, cosplayers, Rennies and SCA-ers!
things I want in Pacific Rim 2 or the animated series:
Newt goes to do a rude imitation of Hermann again and Hermann fires right back with a scarily accurate imitation of him
"Dude kaiju are awesome I mean awful dude kaiju dude"
#newt reels back looking very offended and outraged and shocked#’i DO not sound like that’#literally everyone else in the room is like ‘you sound exactly like that’#newt sulks for hours#hermann is very pleased with himself (tags from tsundere-scientists)

Mhmm. Agreed! Gimme more Christine and Raoul, please.
Love Never Dies, a musical about the de Chagnys picking up the broken pieces of their marriage after the traumatic Phantom experience. The Phantom is still in it, but not as a threat to their marriage; he appears as Christine’s conscience, trying to encourage her to leave Raoul. In the end, the two realize that they both went through too much to give up on their romance and after much emotional conflict, they reconcile, emerge from their grief, and finally begin life anew because Love Never Dies.
THIS! This is what Love Never Dies should have been.
