Tom Hardy on Drawing His Characters and Taboo -- Vulture
The actor writes and doodles compulsively; a notepad lying on a windowsill in his hotel room is festooned with line drawings reminiscent of Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl’s regular illustrator, sandwiched by blocks of barely legible script. The same iPad that chronicles the glories of Marmalade contains Hardy’s drawings and paintings of his movie characters, including Fitzgerald, Bane, and explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton, whom Hardy will play in an upcoming biopic.

homesickblues - Inception (2010) - Corked [Archive of Our Own]
The one where Arthur's the new sommelier at a world-class French restaurant and Eames is the famous chef who makes Arthur's life impossible. // Just an absolutely stunning, classic, immersive AU with all the hard-to-reckon-with elements of inception intact. Painful, gorgeous, romantic, and honestly very informative!!! And Arthur and Eames are beautifully in love.

Seven Years Late, Media Elites Finally Acknowledge GOP's Radical Ways
Today's Republican Party is acting in a way that defies all historic norms. We saw it with the GOP's gun law obstruction, the Violence Against Women Act obstruction, the sequester obstruction, Supreme Court obstruction, minimum wage obstruction, 9/11 first responder obstruction, government shutdown obstruction, immigration reform obstruction, Chuck Hagel's confirmation obstruction, Susan Rice secretary of state obstruction, paid leave obstruction, Hurricane Sandy emergency relief obstruction, the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act obstruction, and the consistent obstruction of judicial nominees.

Arthur became further aware of two important points. One, he was hard. Two, there was an answering hardness behind him and that hardness belonged to his colleague, whom he’d been capably putting off for years now.

He stilled himself. It was vital that he escape without Eames waking up. He willed his erection down but it wasn’t listening, far too fascinated by the warmth of the body pressed up against Arthur’s back, the firm length lying all along the crack of his ass. Arthur took a slow, deep breath and was horrified to note that Eames smelled terrific; pheromones galore. Perfect. // NOTHING TO SEE HERE JUST HOT DELECTABLE CHRISTMAS MORNING SMUT. :DDDDDD

Avacyn - Inception (2010) - untitled library love story [Archive of Our Own]
"It never gets old, does it," says the American, after a few minutes of dead silence. They've taken the letters out of the box - they'd been tied up neatly, for over 150 years, into two little bundles - one Laetitia-Maria's, one Nathaniel's. Eames is holding Maria's, gently, looking through them, pausing to unfold a few but mostly just taking in the sheer volume, the weight of them in his hands. He knows what the American means, and no, it never does get old, the feeling of holding these documents in your own hands, looking at writing so familiar to you, reading the words of someone you know so intimately, the knowledge washing over you again and again that they held these in their own hands, they wrote these letters, the very same ones I'm holding now.

He looks up and meets the American's eyes, and they share a smile - brief, awkward, but a smile nonetheless. He's an academic like you, Eames reminds himself. You might even end up liking him. // oh god i loved this fic, this soft little rare book library + vintage love letters AU, SO MUCH, it's so beautiful and quiet and poignant and precious and it made me so happy.

Richard Seymour reviews ‘This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things’ by Whitney Phillips, ‘Gendertrolling’ by Karla Mantilla, ‘Bad Clowns’ by Benjamin Radford and ‘Trolls’ by John Lindow · LRB 15 December 2016
The new inflection that the internet appears to make possible is the trolls’ disavowal of moral commitment, which depends on a strict demarcation between the ‘real’ offline self, and online anonymity. I am not what I do, as long as I do it online. Yet trolls are not the ‘equal opportunity offenders’ they claim to be. Much of the laughter, Phillips points out, is ‘directed at people of colour, especially African Americans, women, and gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer’ people, while trolling communities disproportionately comprise young white men in Anglophone or Nordic countries. Phillips describes the way they perform their whiteness and a particular type of masculinity – their racist trolling of Obama, for example, or their habitual use of the term ‘fag’. Masculinism is built into the culture of trolling: it isn’t a stretch to see the troll’s amorality as bound up with the familiar masculinist fantasy of ironclad superiority. It may be that all trolls are, among other things, gendertrolls.

deinvati - Inception (2010) - Box It Up [Archive of Our Own]
It was 10:30 am, which meant that Arthur-in-the-morning was starting to make way for Arthur-after-lunch.  He wasn’t completely after-lunch yet, obviously, but it was on its way. You could watch it coming, like an avalanche: slow and inevitable from a distance and decimating up close.  

It always started with the jacket, which was gone by 9:00 at the latest.  He hung it if possible, of course, but sometimes the best option was the back of a chair or, god forbid, the arm of a couch.  Eames had no idea what he did if neither of those things was available.  // Absolutely sizzling hot suitporn in the purest sense — characterization built around wonderful close study (and close reading) of Arthur's wardrobe choices and on-the-job day-to-day behavior. This is SO GOOD, I'm so in love with all these concrete details and all the things they reveal about both Arthur and Eames. And, like, 6.5 years into this fandom I have no idea how fics on this simple theme variant can still pack such a punch but this one not only does so, it manages to achieve an outright catharsis in the final line. Ahhhh, I love this so much.

Blame bad incentives for bad science | Science News
“Real evaluation of scientific quality is as hard as doing the science in the first place,” Nosek says. “So, just like everyone else, scientists use heuristics to evaluate each other's work when they don't have time to dig into it for a complete evaluation.” // or, why we should be just as skeptical of science as everything else

Leif & Thorn – Magic. Comedy. Sparkles. Gay stuff. Unicorns.
Sparkly fantasy dramedy with magic, bilingual shenanigans, lots of queer characters, and the occasional dragon.

A team of Knights are summoned to the capitol city of Ceannis, to guard the embassy of neighboring Sønheim. Thorn is the leader of the knights. Leif prunes the embassy’s rose trees. Both jobs end up being weirder, more complicated, and more hazardous than they look.

BLUELINERS
16-year-old Maggie Cole is about to make history.
The youngest daughter of an AHL superstar and a stand out defense woman in her own right, MC’s leaving her small but prestigious Minnesota hockey program and headed to Massachusetts. After receiving a call from the Cambridge Knights, a USHL expansion team quickly establishing themselves as a force in the east, MC has to prove to the team, the coaches, and the critics she deserves a spot in the starting lineup. With a supportive head coach leading the charge, MC, her defense partner, Tony Mancini, and the Knights have their eyes set on the elusive Clark Cup. With new teams come old rivalries – MC just didn’t expect the most challenging rivalry would come from within her own d-pair.
A defense woman has never played regulation minutes with a USHL junior hockey team. MC might be the first – that is, if Tony’ll pass to her once in a while.
