*lars and the real girl

10 movies to watch when you’re broken

1. Her (2013) dir Spike Jonze

This movie is so great and it’s soooooo tumblr. Spike Jonze is a really fabulous director and his movies are always so beautiful. This movie takes place in a somewhat futuristic version of LA and it is about Theodore, a greeting card writer who falls in love with his operating system. It is silly. Silly movies rule.
You’ve totally seen these pics on tumblr.

2. Lost in Translation (2003) Dir. Sophia Coppola

Lost in Translation is a movie that, if you haven’t seen already, you have to watch like directly after Her because the directors were married and divorced in 2004. This movie is said to be reminiscent of their crumbling relationship, Spike Jonze being Bill Murray’s character and Sophia being Scarlet’s. Her is said to be Spike Jonze’s reaction to this film. ScarJo is such a bae.
“A faded movie star and a neglected young woman form an unlikely bond after crossing paths in Tokyo.”

3. Lars and the Real Girl (2007) Dir. Craig Gillespie

This movie is VERY important because it has Ryan Gosling in his chubbiest, dorkiest form and that’s something everyone has to see. It follows a similar premise to Her, except instead of being in love with an OS he’s in love with a sex doll. Exciting. 

4. Blue Valentine (2010) Dir. Derek Cianfrance

This film also has Ryan Gosling in it so clearly it’s fab. This is the type of movie that leaves you thinking about every relationship in your life forever. It inter-cuts between the beginning of a marriage and the end. “You said for better or for worse. You said that. You said it. It was a promise. Now, this is my worst, okay?”

5. The Place Beyond the Pines (2013) Dir. Derek Cianfrance

OKAY! IT’S ANOTHER RYAN GOSLING FILM! I still don’t really know how I feel about this movie as a whole, but it’s really beautiful and Ryan Gosling is in his prime in this film. It’s essentially a three part movie. It also has Bradley Cooper and Dean DeHaan in it so that’s three reasons you should watch it. The cinematography is A+ also. 


6. Palo Alto (2014) Dir. Gia Coppola

Palo Alto is the type of movie that’s honestly about nothing, but I found that it’s the only film about adolescence that actually captures how it feels to be so heartbroken, confused and lost for no real reason. The cast is stunning! It has that ‘first film’ vibe as well which I think aids the film. 

7. Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012) Dir. Benh Zeitlin

Another first film for the director. Beasts of the Southern Wild is a stunning film. It’s very very emotional as well. Be prepared to cry. 

8. Moonrise Kingdom (2012) Dir Wes Anderson aka King of film

You either love Wes Anderson or you hate him. I personally love him. Moonrise Kingdom is so perfectly awkward. It’s great to watch when you’re sad because it’s funny in a way that’s not too in your face. It’s the perfect relief to your sadness.

9. Clueless (1995) Dir Amy Heckerling

After you’ve watched Moonrise, you’re ready for something light. That something light is Clueless. You can use Cher’s “as if!” attitude to get over whatever has led you to this list or to this blog. 

10. Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) Dir Wes Anderson

Another movie by king Wes. It’s the perfect quirk fest and it features Ralph Fiennes in a really quirky role which is surprising. It’s funny but not a comedy and I love it. Again, Cinematography rules.

Happy Birthday Ryan Gosling - November 12

4

Lars asked us not to wear black today. He did so to remind us that this is no ordinary funeral. We are here to celebrate Bianca’s extraordinary life. From her wheelchair, Bianca reached out and touched us all, in ways we could never have imagined. She was a teacher. She was a lesson in courage. And Bianca loved us all. Especially Lars. Especially him.

Edward and the Real Boy

Summary: Nygmobblepot: Lars and the Real Girl AU - Edward Nygma can’t help but be nervous about tonight. Tonight he meets his new friend Oswald Cobblepot. Who just so happens to be a sex doll.

Rating: Teen, for this chapter and all future chapters will be rated for their content. This fic will include sexual acts with the doll.

Note: I’m just so happy to be finally working on this AU. I wanted to write it for a while, but for a different ship and someone had beat me to that. But I have it for nygmob now and I’m excited about it. This story will not be for everyone and I advise that you take all warnings into consideration before reading. As I stated in the ratings this story will have sexual content, but it’s really centered around Edward’s mental illness, loneliness, and his inability to connect with people. The sex with the doll will be fun, but that’s not what this story is about. I’m anxious and excited to hear from those who read this chapter. Pease, please let me know what you think. Happy reading! (❁´▽`❁)*✲゚*

Part One: Arrival


“Ed?”

The gentlest voice he’s ever heard.

“Edward?”

It’s the handsome voice he’s been graced with every morning for the past month.

“Edward Nygma, wake up.”

His deep brown eyes fly open and with a shy smile, he gazes upon a gorgeous image beside him. “Oswald…”, he whispers softly and kisses the cold freckled cheek of the one laying next to him. “I love it when you wake me up.”

“You know I miss you when you’re sleeping.”

“I know you do and I miss you too, but I always see you in my dreams.”

“I do?”

“All the time.” He scoots closer and rests his head on the still chest of the one sharing his bed. “I’m almost never without you there, but I can’t feel you. It always makes me miss touching you,” he says, wrapping his arm tighter around the torso, gluing himself to the one he cares for. The one who care for him.

“I adore the ways you love cuddling with me, so fucking clingy.“

Edward chuckles as his only reply. He cherishes Oswald’s snark.

“And you know I could hold you all day, but you’re going to be late for work.”

“I won’t be late if you don’t worry about cooking breakfast for me—” Edward caresses his hand over the other’s black silk pajama shirt— “and we can spend the extra time in bed together.”

“Mmm…. I like the way you think, Mr. Nygma.”

“And I treasure the way you stroke my hair.” Edward scratches his scalp and combs his hand through his hair before continuing the morning snuggle.

“It’s always so soft, especially when it’s curly like this.”

“I can wear it curly today just for you.”

“I’d like that. You’re going to look exceptionally beautiful.”

Edward smiles and lifts his head. Oswald always says the dearest things to him. “Don’t forget that Tabitha is coming to pick you up later. She said something about you—” he squints, slowly shaking his head to remember— “helping them with the club?”

“Thank you for reminding me. I nearly forgot.”

“You’re welcome.” Edward presses his lips where his head once laid and kisses down the silk covered body.

“Ah!…. What are you doing?”

A breathy laugh escapes from Edward’s lips, as he continues making his way further down the bed. “What we’re both thinking,” he says between his affectionate actions.

“And how do you know what I’m thinking?”

“I don’t.” He pulls the blanket over his head and puts himself between the others legs. “I’m just hoping we’re thinking the same thing.” Underneath the cover of the olive green comforter, Edward draws down the black silk pants.

“As presumptuous as that may be, Eddie, you’re not wrong.”

“Good….” Edward fills his warm, damp, mouth.

“Oh, gods!…. You’re getting so much better at this….”
