Please… Please don’t let this happen… I won’t survive it…
For the first time ever, I have something real and beautiful. I’m truly happy and I’m slowly rebuilding the parts of me that have been broken. To become the person I’ve always wanted, to be someone who can make the most of everything I have.
It’s time for another giveaway! I’ve reached another follower milestone, and to celebrate I’m holding a mystery box giveaway.
A mystery box filled with handmade goodies! The contents will remain a secret until the winner has received it. All the items in the box will be perfect for a corset or lingerie lover!
The rules (there are only two):
- You need to reblog this post to be in with a chance of winning - Only one reblog counts per person. No giveaway blogs, please. Likes won’t count!
- You need to be following me. I will be checking.
When you reblog (and if you are following me) your username goes on a bit of paper and goes into the pot. When I draw the winner, I will double check that the username is still in my list of followers.
Please have your ask box open so I can contact you for your name and address. I will also need to ask you for your corseted and uncorseted waist sizes so a couple of the prize items can be custom made! If I am unable to contact the first winner, or do not hear from them within 72 hours, I will draw a second name and try again.
Entrants must be over the age of 18 years of age, or have parental permission for me to ask for your details. Shipping will be paid by me.
Competition ends on the 25th of April at 9pm BST. Any reblogs after this time will not be counted.
Good luck everyone!
JUST SO YOU GUYS KNOW, THIS MAN IS CATHOLIC.,
Fun Fact: None of the actors but Gene Wilder knew that the tunnel scene was coming. Like, they had the lines and stuff, but they thought it was just a boat ride. And when the lights came on and he started singing their terror was real
This happened a lot throughout the movie. Which is one of the reasons it’s such a great film. The directors did the same thing when they all saw the inside of the Factory for the first time. They wanted to show the face of pure imagination. To capture it all.
Same thing with the scene where he comes out of the factory to greet them. None of them had gotten to meet Gene beforehand, so when he came out all hobbled on the cane and they had these confused looks on their faces and look actually concerned when he starts to tumble forward? That’s all legit. This whole movie was successful because it fucked with everyone who wasn’t Gene Wilder.You guys know the sad Charlie reaction pic I use so much? That’s another ad lib scene. In rehearsals, gene was a lot calmer, but when they were actually filming he exploded on Peter ostrum (Charlie). That sad expression is genuine. And tht’s what it’s basically my favorite reaction picture ever.
The reason he came out limping and then rolled forward was so that from that point forward nobody could tell if he was lying or telling the truth.
literally none of this movie was scripted they just found a group of people and had them improvise an entire movie as cameras were rolling gene wilder doesn’t even exist you’re still dreaming

Anonymous asked: What are the signs of emotional abuse?
Abusive Expectations - Makes impossible demands, requires constant attention, and constantly criticizes.
Aggressing - Name calling, accusing, blames, threatens or gives orders, and often disguised as a judgmental “I know best” or “helping” attitude.
Constant Chaos - Deliberately starts arguments with you or others. May treat you well in front of others, but changes when you’re alone.
Rejecting - Refusing to acknowledge a person’s value, worth or presence. Communicating that he or she is useless or inferior or devaluing his or her thoughts and feelings.
Denying - Denies personal needs (especially when need is greatest) with the intent of causing hurt or as punishment. Uses silent treatment as punishment. Denies certain events happened or things that were said. Denies your perceptions, memory and sanity by disallowing any viewpoints other than their own which causes self-doubt, confusion, and loss of self-esteem.
Degrading - Any behavior that diminishes the identity, worth or dignity of the person such as: name-calling, mocking, teasing, insulting, ridiculing,
Emotional Blackmail - Uses guilt, compassion, or fear to get what he or she wants.
Terrorizing - Inducing intense fear or terror in a person, by threats or coercion.
Invalidation - Attempts to distort your perception of the world by refusing to acknowledge your personal reality. Says that your emotions and perceptions aren’t real and shouldn’t be trusted.
Isolating - Reducing or restricting freedom and normal contact with others.
Corrupting - Convincing a person to accept and engage in illegal activities.
Exploiting - Using a person for advantage or profit.
Minimizing - A less extreme form of denial that trivializes something you’ve expressed as unimportant or inconsequential.
Unpredictable Responses - Gets angry and upset in a situation that would normally not warrant a response. You walk around on eggshells to avoid any unnecessary drama over innocent comments you make. Drastic mood swings and outbursts.
Gaslighting -A form of psychological abuse involving the manipulation of situations or events that cause a person to be confused or to doubt his perceptions and memories. Gaslighting causes victims to constantly second-guess themselves and wonder if they’re losing their minds.
Also! A person can totally unintentionally be abusive. You don’t have to be a deliberate asshole to make serious mistakes or develop dangerous habits that are abusive.
This does not excuse it at all- with understanding this, we know that “I didn’t mean to” or “I’m not like that” does not justify abuse either. Someone can love you and you can love someone dearly but love and abuse are not mutually exclusive. We must all examine our behaviors in relationships, especially since traditional ideals are often unhealthy.
More people need to be aware of this. Even someone who loves you deeply can be emotionally abusing you and putting you through hell.
Trust me. Just been there. I was lucky and managed to get out.
