How Technology Hijacks People’s Minds — from a Magician and Google’s Design Ethicist — Medium
Instead of viewing the world in terms of availability of choices, we should view the world in terms of friction required to enact choices. Imagine a world where choices were labeled with how difficult they were to fulfill (like coefficients of friction) and there was an FDA for Tech that labeled these difficulties and set standards for how easy navigation should be. // this is all so good, a paul fordian look at how social engineering becomes design architecture.

Noel Wells: A Q&A With the Comedic 'Master of None' Star | LADYGUNN
I found SNL to be fairly conservative… It’s very much a boys club, in a rigid, unimaginative type of way. I was cast as the “cute girl” and I was treated like I was dumb and didn’t belong. And I admired so many people there, so to be invited in but then kept on the outside was devastating. It was the loneliest year of my life, and I’m pretty sure I got into comedy because of loneliness. When it ended, I felt very much like a bad breakup. Deep down, I probably saw that SNL wasn’t right for me, but I would have tried to stay with it longer, even if it killed me. But when they dumped me, I really had to get clear about what I wanted and my values and the type of work I wanted to create, and I recognized I’d be able to be much more successful in more meaningful ways without the show looming over me.

indysaur - The Force Awakens (2015) - Things That Matter (Poe/Finn)
“No, I’m saying that we don’t know what her story is.” Poe matches Finn’s intensity, his words coming faster and faster. “There’s not a single example of a Stormtrooper who’s turned until you, not even in the days of the Rebel Alliance. And then, all of a sudden, there are two? Isn’t it possible that she’s a plant? The First Order considers you a traitor. Why wouldn’t they send someone after you? You can’t just assume that she’s innocent, that she’s trustworthy .”

Finn doesn’t know why it feels like a blow, but it does. He sits, heavy, feeling every past hour of the day dragging him down. He drops his head into his hands, his fingers curled into his hair, catching at his scalp. “What makes me special?” he says, finally, the words dragged out of him. He laughs, ragged. “I’m just the first one you saw take their helmet off.”

// This fic is everything i've been wanting this fandom to give me.

kenopsia (indie) - Inception (2010) - late fees [Archive of Our Own]
“I should have never lent you out,” Eames says, pulling at his shoulders like there’s any space between the two of them that Eames can cut through.

“I’m not a library book,” Arthur says, letting Eames crush him tight.

“And yet somehow I get the distinct sense that you’d be much better off if I had you back on my bookshelf.”

scribblscrabbl - Inception (2010) - where we're going isn't where we've been [Archive of Our Own]
Arthur’s only seen Eames look this nervous twice before: the time he’d finally worked up the courage to tell Arthur the downstairs cleaners fucked up Arthur’s favorite suit when he’d explicitly told Eames not to take it to the downstairs cleaners, and the moment Eames put the car in park in the driveway of his family’s sprawling estate, done up like a Christmas postcard, before he turned to Arthur and said, I’m sorry.

Which means Arthur should expect something hilariously trivial or completely catastrophic.

Anonymous - Hamilton - Miranda - Interlude (Rise Up) [Archive of Our Own]
goddammit this is amazing. and probably just unbottled the inner burr/hamilton shipper i was trying to repress. god *dammit.*

I'll be brief: call the jury in, you'll see your doubt's injurious.
What, you're telling me you aren't a little curious
to see what we could do, together, if we're able?

Our partnership is not the issue on the table.

The table, the bed… No need to look so furious!
I'm confident, sir, if you'll let me resume,
I can prove beyond doubt that I'm the one in the room,
all others merely in the foyer.
Come on, you admitted it: who's the better lawyer?

Alright, I'm game. I'll mount my defence.
You're all facts, no eloquence--sir, it makes a difference!
You're better at exactness, but I'm better at emotion,
at riling up the courtroom and causing a commotion.
I'll argue this case 'til I'm blue in the face.
Burr, believe me, I'm not saying this to spite you,
it's as simple as this: I don't like you like you

Well, excuse me. We're in your fantasy, friend,
and fancy that, you choose me! Who's here, at the end?
Your defence ain't the only thing you're thinking of mounting.

Anonymous - Philadelphia Story (1940) - Fed by Fables [Archive of Our Own]
I cannot even SPEAK this story is so fantastic. It's half a canon Philadelphia Story epistolary future-fic, and half a Philadelphia Story POLITICAL SPACE AU. WRITTEN BY A 50'S SCI-FI LOVING DINAH LORD. It's INCREDIBLE. my mind is blown from bow to stern.

You're Afraid of Tom Hardy Because You're Afraid of Manhood | Sharp Magazine
It should be said: Hardy would almost certainly disagree with this assessment. While he’s rocking, he’s telling me about the IKEA furniture he had to build recently. And how it was impossible. “It’s like a massive bowl of spaghetti. It’s great at first, but then it keeps going and going, and you’re sure it was light out when you started eating it,” he says. “You start out all positive. But then my wife has to come in and finish it.” The furniture, he means, not the metaphorical pasta.

Which reminds him: “Monkey?” he calls to his wife, “Am I good at anything manly?”

“You’re a good protector,” she says. “I always feel safe with you.”

“There you go,” he says, mock-triumphantly, “I’m a protector.”

my secret confession is that i really wish EGT would write more canonical arthur/eames because they're so amazing like this and i love the banter and solidity between them & the two of them knowing each other so well and ALSO AQUARIUMS. (I also secretly really love aquariums so this spoke to me on a personal level, lol). *burbles happily*

Aja - Wir sind die Nacht | We Are the Night (2010) - Abendemfindung (evening sentiment) [Archive of Our Own]
She trailed off, suddenly overwhelmed by it all—the enormity of the building they were in, with its looming vaulted cathedral arches and half-price bottles of Dover's powder; the way Dr. Caligari made her feel like a trembling, excited fledgling afraid to fly; the marvel of the child growing in her belly, and how she felt consumed by the future for its sake; of the rumblings that the Italian blackshirts and their Roman takeover was just the beginning of similar nationalist movements springing up across the continent.

It all made her feel at once as though history started and stopped in the span of a moment no bigger than this; as though everything she would ever be, everything her son or daughter would ever be, everything the untold centuries of civilization would ever be, began and ended right here by the shoe polish rack.
