Omg I was already rewatching 13x06 and came to your blog to freak out about how in the "that's a pretty damn big win" Sam closed the doors of the drawer like that was such an unnecesary moment and I felt like it could mean "he's out of the closet for me, these doors can shut down forever there's no going back in" or the other way around idk. And then saw u were commenting about it just on your last ask and gods thank god I wasn't the only one seeing that

DEAN OPENED THE DOORS!

THEY HAD THAT CONVERSATION ABOUT WHY DEAN’S SO HAPPY AND HE’S LIKE “WELL I GOT MY CAS BACK, OF COURSE I’M LE HAPPY NOW!”

AND SAM’S LIKE OKAY I GUESS THAT’S FAIR BUT… *CLOSES CLOSET*

Yeah, and the whole thing took place in the room with the saloon doors (you know, the kind that swing both ways?).

I mean, I had to watch the whole thing like three times through because I couldn’t believe it.

anonymous asked:

Hey! How I describe the word "suddenly" without using it? Other blogs/posts tell me that this word does not create the desired effect and it is unnecessary. What should I do?

Yes, “suddenly” isn’t a good choice in story writing because it’s a form of “telling” not “showing” and makes it very clear that there’s a blatant narrator instead of the reader being integrated into the scene. 

This old ask was about the same thing, and contains an example, but focuses a little more on the scene as a whole rather than avoiding using the word.

For direct ways to avoid “suddenly”, you want to look at your writing like the reader is in the scene. You don’t get warnings when things suddenly happen to you, they just happen. Use language structure to convey the sudden event.

A new paragraph, a dash to show interruption, shorter sentences, all that stuff is explained in the ask I linked you to. 

Good luck with your work!

An epic pioneer story set in post-WWII South, Dee Rees’ Mudbound pits two families against a barbaric social hierarchy and an unrelenting landscape as they simultaneously fight the battle at home and abroad. Devastating in its power and authenticity, Mudbound is destined to become a classic.

Rees is a long-time Sundance alum, attending the 2007 Screenwriters Lab and 2008 Directors Lab with Pariah.  She ultimately premiered both the short and feature versions of the film in 2008 and 2011, respectively and the feature was awarded the Excellence in Cinematography Award.

Rees returned to the 2017 Sundance Film Festival with Mudbound, which opens in select theatres and on Netflix Friday, November 17. 

Check out the powerful acceptance speech Dee Rees gave as the recipient of the 2017 Sundance Institute Vanguard Award.  The award celebrates innovation, originality, independent spirit, and visionary storytelling.

Things about 13x06 “Tombstone” #1

Well, that’s some pretty direct and heavy visual alignment there. :) I don’t think the framing of Dean with a cross has been this immediate and blatant in quite some time. I’m not complaining since it’s one of the longest standing themes (and one of my personal faves) for Dean. Dean the firewall between light and darkness, the epitome of human and divine…

The two women talked about the wedding planning for awhile and then Loreene wanted to know more about the wedding dress.

L. - So when can I see the dress? - 
P. - Well, you can see it the first time you come over here! We can get an appointment at the atelier. - 
L. - It would be amazing! I have a day off next week. - 
P. - Ok! I’m so happy to spend the day with you, I can’t wait! -
