"Uh, Cas….? Castiel…the camera is over here..”

As Captain Blood (1935) went into production, Warner Brothers insisted that Olivia de Havilland and Errol Flynn rehearse scenes without filming—to get a sense of whether the “two amateurs,” as Jack Warner called them, could carry an important movie together. One day during this trial period, Olivia and Errol both happened to return to the set early after lunch, before any other cast or crew members had arrived. She later recalled:

[H]e asked me—he was 25 years of age when this happened, and I was still 18—he said to me, “What do you want out of life?” and I thought, “What an extraordinary question to be asked! Nobody has asked me that ever.” And in fact, nobody ever did in the years that followed, and I said, “I would like respect for difficult work well done.”

And then I said, “Well, what do you want out of life?” and he said, “I want success.” And what he meant by that was fame and riches, both of which he certainly did achieve, but when he said it, I thought, “But that’s not enough,” and indeed, it proved in Errol’s life not to be enough. [x]

We have phases in our lives, and those phases have an end. You have to understand nothing last forever, not even your captain Steven Gerrard. It was going to happen someday. He’s been through a lot of things. If you admire him and love him this much, you have to respect his decision.

FAIRYTALE MEME: 6 Heroines - [4/6] The Princess from The Princess and the Pea

 ”Now they perceived that she was indeed a true princess, as she had claimed, because she had felt the pea through twenty mattresses and the twenty eiderdown quilts.
 No one, surely, but a true princess could be as sensitive as that.

Bellarke AU: Climbing Mount Everest

Bellamy and Clarke fall through a sheet of ice into a cave, where they have to find a way out since where they were drowned out their distress signals for help. Without the right equipment,  little food, and temperatures below freezing it was inevitable they would die fairly quick. They need to work together to survive before the mountain takes them like it has the others before them.

In case for some bizarre reason you weren’t sure that Artemis was Minako’s cat.

And of course a NaruHina fan in my class bashes NaruSaku the moment he enters the room

Both baffled and alarmed that the common rebuttals I’m seeing against the points of Ray Palmer’s stalkerish behavior are

  • "Well Felicity took the job/kissed him why aren’t we calling her out on choosing to put a so-called stalker in her life"
  • (hi, because that’s called victim blaming)
  • and “well Oliver made Felicity his EA against her will”
  • (we know; we hate it and call it bullshit, too)
  • and “Felicity/Oliver invade people’s privacy all the time by hacking personal info”
  • (they’re vigilantes, they do that on suspicion of criminal activity/intent to harm others)

as if even any of that negates

  • that Ray Palmer’s behavior is still creepy, stalkerish, and dangerously indicative of his disregard for a woman’s use of the word “no
  • that Marc Guggenheim sees absolutely nothing wrong or harmful in portraying Ray Palmer in this way and coding his behaviors as romantic, awkward, quirky, cute, and harmless
  • all of these things are deliberate, carefully considered narrative choices that the writers/showrunners choose over and over in a frankly alarming pattern
