Apparently, Bad, and Comfortable: theladyzephyr: Folks let me talk about Crowley and sunglasses, because I have a lot of emotions about when he wears them and when he doesn’t, and Hiding versus Being Seen. We’re introduced to the concept of Crowley wearing glasses even before we’re introduced to Crowley, by Hastur: “If you ask me he’s been up here too long. Gone native. Enjoying himself too much. Wearing sunglasses even when he doesn’t need them.” Honestly Crowley’s whole introduction is a fantastic; we learn so much about his character in a tiny amount of time. The fact that he’s late, the Queen playing as the Bentley approaches, the “Hi, guys” in response to Hastur and Ligur’s “Hail Satan”. I like this intro much better than the one originally scripted with the rats at the phone company, but I digress. Crowley wears sunglasses when he doesn’t need them. Specifically, he still wears them around the demons, and when he’s in hell. You know where Crowley doesn’t wear glasses? At home. We never once see him wearing glasses in his flat, except for when he knows Hastur and Ligur are coming. That’s an emotional kick to the gut for me. Here’s one of the only places Crowley’s comfortable enough to be sans glasses, and when he knows it’s going to be invaded he prepares not just physically with the holy water, but by putting up that emotional barrier in a place where he wasn’t supposed to need it. An argument could be made that Crowley actually never needs glasses. We’re shown that it’s well within the angels’ and demons’ powers to pass unnoticed by humans. Crowley and Aziraphale waltz out of the manor in the middle of a police raid, and going unnoticed by the police takes so little effort that they can keep up a conversation while they stroll through. Even an unimaginative demon like Hastur apparently doesn’t have trouble with the humans losing it over his demonic eyes. The humans in the scene at Megiddo are acting like “this guy is a little weird” and not “holy shit his entire eyeballs are black jelly” That means that Crowley’s glasses are a choice, just like Aziraphale’s softness. Sure, he could arrange matters so that nobody ever noticed his eyes, but he doesn’t want to. Crowley wants acceptance, and he wants to belong, and he’s never, ever had that. He didn’t fit in before the Fall in Heaven, he doesn’t fit in with the demons in Hell. With the glasses, and with the Bentley and his plants and with the barely-bad-enough-to-be-evil nuisance temptations, he’s choosing Earth. This is where he wants to fit in, perhaps not with the humans, but amongst them. Even after Crowley is at his absolute lowest, when he thinks Aziraphale’s dead and he’s on his way to drink until the world ends, he takes the time to put a new pair on when the old ones are damaged. He needs that emotional crutch right now, even with everything about to turn into a pile of puddling goo he’s not ready for the world to see his eyes. Which is why I swore out loud when Hastur forcibly takes them off. It’s about the worst thing that Hastur could have done. Rather than leading with a physical threat, his first act is to strip away Crowley’s emotional defences. It’s a great writing choice because god it made me hate Hastur, even more than all the physical violence we see him do. It’s also the moment that Crowley really truly gets his shit together, and focuses all of his considerable imagination on getting to Tadfield and Aziraphale to help save the world. He’s wielding the terrifyingly unimaginable power of someone who’s hit rock bottom and realised it literally could not get any worse than this. He doesn’t put another pair of glasses on after discorporating Hastur, and he spends the majority of the airbase sequence without them. He puts them back on again, I think, at the moment that he really lets himself hope. When he thinks ‘shit, there may be a real chance that we get through this to a future that I don’t want to lose’. The vulnerability is back, and he needs Adam to trust him. In Crowley’s mind being accepted by a human means he needs to have his eyes hidden. Someone give the demon a hug, please. Interestingly, there’s only one time in the whole series that we see Crowley willingly choose to take his glasses off around another person. Only one person he’ll take down that barrier for, and even then he’s drunk before he does it. Dear God/Satan/Someone that makes my heart ache. Crowley’s chosen Earth, but he’s also chosen Aziraphale. He’s been looking for somewhere to belong his entire existence, and it’s with the angel that he finally feels it. When the dust settles and the world is saved and they finally have space to be themselves unguarded, I like to imagine Crowley takes off the glasses when it’s just the two of them; the idea of being known doesn’t scare him quite so much anymore.

Bae, Dating, and Dude: To have someone just to simply talk to and cuddle after a long day @Blackcitygirl Is that too much to ask for? My b'day is coming and every year I ask the same question "God where is my Boaz?” 😩😭 I was serious when I said I’m taking time off dating and that inc deleting any temptations off my phone which was a big deal for me as I like flirting. So now, I feel more single than ever! 😒 Some days I’m convinced future bae is out there searching for me on his GPS 🚗➡️🙌🏼 other days I question, and if I’m honest I dunno if he gonna be black, pink or blue. Since I was asked to do some posts this week, I thought I’d share about my everyday struggles. I haven’t met anyone serious for so freaking long! One guy messaged on FB and by the time I responded at 9pm he asked me out for 1pm the next day, like dude didn’t even give me 12 hours to prepare 😳so I’m not holding my breath. Idk, it just feels like nobody really wants to get to know you properly, interest is based off your pics, profile and texts!!! So one thing on my b’day 🎂🎁🎉wish list this year is a chocolatey 🍫Godly man who doesn't mind courting in the old skool way. 😍🔥🔥🔥 I want calls, dates and something exclusive and if you know “you're not ready” pls don’t apply. When did dating become so hard? Blackcitygirl

Memes, The Voice, and Chinese: NEVER GIVE UP!!! There's an old Chinese saying that says "The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed." I found this to be extremely true. That first year in a new business is always extremely challenging. You set off with the greatest of intentions & high hopes only to find the reality of the real world slapping you around. Failure after failure, things taking longer than expected, & always needing more capital causes massive heartburn & many sleepless nights. At many points I wanted to give up & I thought about quitting on a daily basis. When I first started my educational company Clever Investor I used the money that I made off of real estate investing to live off while I got Clever off the ground. I thought it may take up to six months when in reality it took 2 full years before I ever made a profit. Imagine not making a penny on a business for two full years & every day that goes by the voices around you get louder & it becomes harder to convince yourself to continue on. But I did & just when I started to make a profit & take a paycheck an independent contractor that we hired to set up our Infusionsoft accidentally erased all the credit card data in our system & I lost 100% of my business overnight. It was a devastating blow to the biz. I've bombed on dozens of webinars, choked on live TV, wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars on projects that failed, hired the wrong people who stole money from me, & had many instances where I had to stop taking a paycheck in order to make payroll. You want to be an entrepreneur, this is the reality. Fortunately for me on the other side of thoughts about quitting was a glimmer of hope. A fear of failure & a need to prove everybody wrong that propelled me forward. As I reflect back on those challenging moments I'm thankful for my mentors, friends, & family members that did support me & gave me the encouragement to keep moving forward. I'm thankful that I trusted my gut instincts despite what hurdles and challenges were being thrown at me. Success truly is right on the other side of hard times and I'm telling you from personal experience it's the greatest feeling in the world once you achieve it.
