Teen Wolf AU: [Part 1/2] The Academy Award winning actor Derek Hale and up and coming star Stiles Stilinski meet on set of a movie they’re shooting together, and fall in love. However, their managers and PR team advises them to keep their relationship a secret while promoting the movie; after all, Hollywood isn’t exactly known for supporting LGBTQ actors, and they fear having Derek and Stiles both coming out as bisexual will keep a lot of conservative people from seeing the film. Reporters have already begun questioning the nature of their relationship, mostly because Derek - not exactly known for his sunny demeanour or getting along with his co-stars - can’t keep himself from singing Stiles’ praises (and neither can Stiles).

Based on this post. Title from Macklemore’s “Can’t Hold Us.”
Derek shuffles the deck of cards lazily, proficiently, cards flitting through his fingers from palm to palm with ease while Stiles pulls on a second sweater.
“Alright,” Stiles says, tugging on a beanie and sitting down, completing the circle of humans and werewolves and whatever Lydia Martin is. “Rules, rules, here are the rules.” Derek starts dealing. “You lose a hand, you strip. And,” Stiles says, lifting up two handles of Svedka vodka, “if you’re not a pussy, you take a shot. Wolfs bane infused and non-wolfs bane infused, respectively. When you’re naked or near alcohol poisoning, you’re out.”
Lydia looks Stiles up and down and raises a single eyebrow. “You’re wearing a lot of clothing right now, Stiles.”
“It’s cold in here.” Stiles tugs on a pair of gloves with a smirk. Derek glares at him and Stiles tightens one of his kneepads. “I’m very accident prone, Derek! Not everyone has werewolf healing abilities.” Lydia shrugs and glances at her cards coyly.
“Last rule: what happens in this room stays in this room,” Stiles adds. He glances at Derek and then looks at his own cards.
“You got something in mind?” Derek asks. Subtlety is not his finest art.
“I’ve got a good hand,” Allison crows, saving Stiles from embarrassment.
The games begin.
"I can’t believe you two are drunk," Derek says, when he pulls up to the curb in his lameass Toyota.
"Scott’s drunk," Stiles says. "I’m just intoxicated by you."
Derek rolls his eyes, but the tops of his ears pink up and, okay. Stiles may be a little drunk but that’s the cutest thing he’s ever seen. So cute that when he wakes up the next morning, he still remembers it.
Anonymous asked you:
i would die a fiery death for a sterek AU where derek is the grumpiest ‘sandwich artist’ in all of subway, and stiles thinks it’s hilarious to order a footlong sub and be the little shit he is and wink and flirt and just generally make derek a flustered mess.
I think women should wear whatever makeup they want for themselves. Makeup should be fun.

Veronika Scott was a fashion student at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit when her teacher, Stephen Schock, challenged her class to create a product that filled a need, rather than satisfying or creating a fad. Veronika’s design was a coat for homeless people that could transform into a sleeping bag, since in her city, she says, “you are constantly faced with the homeless epidemic.”
Not only did her design win a International Design Excellence Award from the Industrial Designers Society of America, it’s become the core of Veronika’s nonprofit organization, The Empowerment Plan, which hires people from homeless shelters and transition homes to help her make the coats. Now, three years later, the 24-year-old social entrepreneur expects that her team of 15 seamstresses will produce over 6,000 coats in 2014 — all of which will be distributed free of charge to people living on the streets.
Veronika originally designed the coats seeking input from people at a homeless shelter. After receiving feedback from people who used the prototype over a Detroit winter, she refined the design to create her final version which, in addition to being a waterproof and windproof coat and sleeping bag, also transforms into an over-the-shoulder bag with storage in the arm sockets.
When she started out, Veronika states,
“Everybody told me that my business was going to fail — not because of who I was giving my product to but because of who I was hiring. They said that these homeless women will never make more than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich — you cannot rely on them for anything. And I know my ladies enjoy proving everybody wrong.”
And, their impact is growing — according to CNN, which recently honored Veronika as one of their 10 Visionary Women of 2014, “The Empowerment Plan expects to launch a ‘buy one, give one’ program that will make it sustainable beyond the donations and sponsorships that keep it running now. Hunters and backpackers who’ve asked to buy the coat will be able to do so, and the Empowerment Plan will still create coats for homeless people who need them.”
Veronika is also excited to show other clothing producers that local manufacturing is possible: “I think we’re going to show a lot of people: you think it’s outdated to do manufacturing in your neighborhood, but I think it’s something that we have to do in the future, where it’s sustainable, where you invest in people, where they’re not interchangeable parts.”

Important in so many ways.
This is amazing and wonderful.

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.
It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.
While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.
Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it.
It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
Derek’s pretty sure his mother made him go to this wedding just to see him suffer, because last Thanksgiving he said her turkey wasn’t as good as usually. It’s a little bit hypocritical of her, Derek thinks, seeing as she always told him to be honest. Look how that turned out for him. He could be at home, in sweatpants, a whole giant jar of cheeseballs by his side, watching Friends or some shit; literally anything would be better than being surrounded by ignorant morons. Derek thought he’d already met the dullest, dumbest, most conservative people the entire planet had to offer, but oh, here he is now: being proven wrong.
At this point, he’s pretty sure there isn’t enough alcohol at the bar to cover his need. Mom’s been sending hard looks his way since his third drink. So far he’s been going slow, though, easy, no hard stuff. He has to keep up appearances. Although maybe he shouldn’t, so next time everyone would specifically ask for Derek not to attend any weddings or birthdays of the extended family. He’s already accidentally flashed some old lady from the other half of the family, so.
Sounds like a plan.
Which is secondary now, admittedly. Derek’s only been getting drinks because it means he gets to call his waiter; his maddening ungodly hot waiter whose ass could be a piece of art by itself, and his face is just something out of very unrealistically written porn or something. Well, at least Derek would’ve laughed if he ever read a description of a face like that, but it actually exists; it’s fucking offensively pornographic, kinda. In a good way. Or it’s only Derek’s dick talking.
