I like everything a lot so far! Well, everything except the Crowley stuff. Dude was a murdering rapist. I’m sure 13x02 is gonna show why it’d be better to have him back but it’s still a tough sell to me. Sorry, Dabb.

The Jack stuff was well done imo. I didn’t wanna like the kid but he loves his mom and Cas and now I can’t help but root for the guy. Dammit. Lol.

Was really proud of how understanding Sam was! Jared looked super good and he was really clever with banishing the angels with his spilt blood! <3

Scene of the night was Dean praying to God tho. Hands down. I was also screaming when he took the sheet off Cas and then had to put it back, unable to look at his dead body anymore. The use of golden sheers to tie him up felt especially symbolic. Sheers are designed to still let the light in, Cas’ presence in Dean’s life. And now that’s gone.

BTS REACT: To you failing at aegyo on Weekly Idol and he falls in love

Anonymous said to kpopgroupsreact:
Bts reaction when their best friend idol group is with them on weekly idol and she forced to do aegyo but fail hard.And maybe they might fall in love with you


This one was a little difficult to make just because I honestly had no clue how to make them different. But I tried, I hope you still like it! <3

Scene: You were doing a special episode of Weekly Idol with your group and BTS, the group your best friend was in, as guests on the show. Being a favourite of the MCs you were forced to do aegyo, which you completely failed.


Rap Monster: He was the only one that laughed, and he couldn’t quite figure out why he found you so adorable despite your aegyo being on level 100 cringe. He would have found it hilarious enough to tease you about it all the time.

Jin: He wouldn’t be able to hold back a small chuckle. You had tried so hard and to him you still looked really cute, making him feel all fuzzy inside.

Suga: Even though he knew he shouldn’t react he couldn’t stop the smile from surfacing. You were so cute trying to act shameless about how awful your aegyo was.

This girl…

J-Hope: He would gradually smile despite being visually shocked. That was awful. But why did I find it cute?

Shoot, I laughed. Do they think I like her? Wait…do I like her?

V: He’d say you’re cute right out loud without a second thought. 

“Ayeee…that was still cute!” 

He’d realise what he said and get a little embarrassed but thinking on it later he’d know he meant what he said. You had always been adorable to him.

Barbie: Starlight Adventure

For some reason I wrote down notes while watching one of the latest Barbie movie with Space Elsa and I did not want to throw them away so her we go. :P CONTAINS SPOILERS!!

PROS:

  • Visually stunning! Galaxy imagery is always pretty, but this movie is really colorful and absolutely beautiful. (* w *)
  • Barbie looks and acts like a 17 year old and that is good (in most of her movies she appears to be in her twenties, especially the older ones). 
  • Barbies´ snort laugh! <3
  • Sal-Lee´s hair! <3<3
  • Scene were a robot steals the prince´s popcorn.
  • Leo´s constant need for food in general is actually really funny. 
  • I may prefer fantasy, but it´s very refreshing to see Barbie in a sci-fi adventure for once.
  • All the teens are super smart and talented in their own way. They can handle technology and spaceships without any problem, which reflects well on our youngest generations that are growing up in the technological age. 
  • Barbie isn’t treated differently based on sexist shit, which has always been a good trait in her movies ((Well, at least most of the time… *cough* Barbie and the Three Musketeers *cough*)). 
  • I like that the king isn’t a bad guy like you first assume.

CONS:

  • Unnecessary narrator is unnecessary.
  • Barbie is called Barbie in this. This messes up canon lore soon much!!
  • The characters say stuff without any reason. They jump from topic to topic in an unnatural way. And it´s not a character thing, just bad writing.
  • The reuse of the same 3D bases for the main characters is more distracting than ever (CLONES!!). And because of this I head-cannon that Leo is Barbie´s long lost brother. YOU CAN´T STOP ME!!
  • The songs feel really out of place. It´s not that the songs aren’t good, it´s the audio itself. It feels and sounds as if Barbie isnt really singing, that somebody muted her and put on iTunes.
  • Why doesnt the prince have any powers? :,(
  • The sisters´ telepathy skills are introduced, used like once or twice and then are never seen again. Just a waist of script pages.
  • Since there is no villain or antagonist of any kind there isnt anything really standing in Barbie´s way. There isnt even an element of “You must change in order to overcome your own weakness” or anything like that. 
  • The main plot line (save the stars) does not come with any sense of urgency. There is no countdown, and we dont even know what will happen IF the stars die (they litteraly only say the it would be “bad”). And even when the stars DID go out at the end, it did not seem to matter that much. People were just a little sad. 
  • That damn deus ex machine ending twist. It had me literally swearing. It was pretty thou.
  • Barbie is special and that snow-flakyness saves the day. Been there, done that. 
Hamlet: A very short and abridged version (Act 4)

Act 1 Act 2 Act 3

Scene I

The Queen’s room with the King and Guildencrantz

Claudius: Hey, honey. You’re a bit pale. What happened?
Gertrude: *shocked* Hamlet came in, screamed obscenities and killed Polonius. (Nervous breakdown, I tell you. Nervous breakdown.)
Claudius: *pats her head* Oh, Guildencrantz make sure that we get rid of him and everything will be fine. Let’s go to some friends. (What friends? Valium and alcohol? Opium?)

Scene II

Somewhere in the castle

Hamlet: Yes, I hid the body.
Guildencrantz: Where is it?
Hamlet: Lol. Nope. Mad! (And at this point I truly believe it. Being quite cheery for killing his almost father-in-law. Not giving a damn about his ex. Hiding a cadaver for fun.)
Guildencrantz: *sigh* Eh?

Scene III

Claudius: The guards looked everywhere, but they couldn’t find the body. Where is it?
Hamlet: Lalalala, you won’t ever find Polonius until you smell him.
Claudius: *pats Hamlet with a fake smile* Hamlet. You’re not well. We will send you to England with your friends. Only for your best. Get well! (Only that you make this seem new, but you plotted it for a while. And Hamlet new already anyway. But hey, better tell everything twice. 😉)
Hamlet: Cool! Bye!

Scene IV

A field somewhere in Denmark

Fortinbras (heir to Norway, was also tricked out of his throne by his uncle taking over, sounds familiar?): Hey, you Captain. Can you go to the King and tell him that we’ll march through Denmark on our way to war with Poland? Thanks! (FORTINBRAS!!!! MY FAV!!!!! *heart eyes* The best of the best! The one that they cut in every second production! The coolest of them all. – The only good thing about Benedict’s Hamlet was that they kept Fortinbras and gave him a great coat. THAT COAT! AND FORTINBRAS!)

The same field, Hamlet walks by (Denmark isn’t bigger than a shoe box by this account)

Hamlet: Oh, so many soldiers. Who is their commander and why?
Soldier: Fortinbras of Norway and we’ll conquer Poland.
Hamlet (on his own): I have to move forward with my revenge, as does he with his. Never lose focus.

Scene V

Queen: Oh please, don’t make me speak with Ophelia. I can’t bear it. How is she?
Horatio: Well, broken-hearted. Mad with grief.

Horatio brings in Ophelia

Ophelia *sings, mad with grief and barely coherent*: My brother’s gone, my boyfriend broke my heart, and then my dad was slain. *sobs*
King: Hey, how are you? *gently takes her hand and tries to sooth her* (I think for once there is an actual kind reaction from him. Ophelia’s situation is THAT horrible, that it melts even the coldest and lights the darkest of hearts. Who has no pity for her has no heart.)
Ophelia: I only hope that everyone is happy, not like me who can’t do anything but cry. Goodnight. *sad-smile* *leaves*
King: Oh god, please, Horatio. Follow her and make sure that she is well. – Oh Gertrude, this breaks my heart. To see the nice and kind Ophelia affected by sorrow that way. (You didn’t think twice when it was about Hamlet though, right?)
A guy storms in: Oh, god! Laertes is coming. With an army. And he is furious! (Laertes is back! After two or three hours! Hey, and somehow he doesn’t like that his family was destroyed by Hamlet’s and Claudius petty revenge game. Let’s see who’s side he takes!)

Laertes: WHO THE FUCK KILLED MY DAD!
King: Not me. Hamlet was it!

Ophelia comes in with some flowers.

Laertes: Oh god. Pheli! (Honestly. Just reading and writing this makes me cry. I can’t find any funny responses or anything. Just imagine being a guy who goes on to university in high spirits. Comes back a few weeks later, because he heard his dad was murdered. And then he sees his sister. His little sister that was always something like his sunshine and she doesn’t even recognise him. Torn apart and driven made by grief.)
Ophelia: Here, everyone. Have some flowers. I miss my dad so much!
Claudius: Okay, Laertes. I feel your grief. Chose now. We can plot together to get revenge for your family.
Laertes: YES!

Scene VI

Letter from Hamlet to Horatio: Dear Horatio, had some fun with pirates. Guildencrantz are still going to England *winky face*. I’m back in Denmark. Come to me as soon as possible. – He, who you know is yours – Hamlet (If you ever wondered about the “Hamlet and Horatio are gay”-thing.)

Scene VII:

Laertes and Claudius work out a plan (because that went well so far)

Laertes: Tell me again, why didn’t you kill Hamlet if you know it was him?
Claudius: Because I actually truly love my wife and it would break her heart, beside it looks bad for me as a king. (You can totally make up which of the parts is more important. Claudius the guy, who did everything for love or Claudius the ruthless-powerhungry villain. Shapes the whole play and makes nearly equal sense.)
messenger brings in a letter: Hamlet is back and wants to meet you!
Laertes: He. Destroyed. My. Family.
Claudius: Yes, and I have a plan! Just tell me you’ll do anything for revenge!
Laertes: Yes.
Claudius: I know you are the best fencer – far better than Hamlet, so we’ll set up a match. To be sure we’ll poison your weapon and if that’s not enough we’ll have a drink with poison set aside for Hamlet as well. (Claudius doesn’t take chances. )
Laertes: Yes!

Gertrude comes in: Ophelia drowned.
Laertes: No more tears!

Act 5

When did Percival Graves disappear?

I received my copy of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay two days ago and only now have been able to start reading it.  We all know Rowling is a queen of hints that are so subtle, they’re blatant after the fact. We also have to take into consideration sometimes we’re just too eager as fans to find clues, we’re completely wrong and think there is some dramatic purpose for the curtains to be purple when I just like purple curtains.  I’m working between the two.

@chaotic-king has a post that is a precursor to this post, on when or how the real Percival Graves disappeared and how Grindlewald got to New York.  @seasons-gredence also has a post on what we know of the real Percival Graves.  There are many notable comments and replies that I suggest everyone check out.  Heck, even in my reading of them, there are still things I may have missed.  (In other words, please point me in the direction of anything I might have missed.)

There are three parts to this post: screenplay evidence, film evidence, and my speculation on Graves’ disappearance, personality, Grindlewald, and Credence. This is an unusual format, even for me.  My theories usually don’t look like this—then again, I usually don’t give theories on screenplays and films.  I found it easiest to provide all evidence first, then my commentary.  Fair warning: it took far longer to write this theory (three hours) than it did to concoct it (however long it took me to read between Scenes 5 and 22).  It’s also a very long post.

*********************************

Newt walking down the street, about to meet Mary Lou, Jacob, and Tina. The start of the adventure.

Page 41
Scene 22
Int. Major Investigation Department—Day

Tina brings Newt to MACUSA, where we meet Madam Seraphina Picquery and Percival Graves.  Same day as Scene 6.  Graves is described as being bruised from the encounter the night before.  Graves claims entity is a beast, not a human.

*********************************

Film Evidence

Newt’s adventures are said to have taken over, approximately, two days. Taking in the facts presented in the script and film:

Day -1.  (Scene 1)  Grindlewald’s attack in Europe.

Day 0.  (Scenes 2-5)  Newt arrives in New York.  Held up at the port almost all day, if not all day.  May have slept at the docks or somewhere close by.  (Not a proper “day one” by most people’s standards.)  Graves inspects explosion.

Day 1.  (Scene 6-)  Newt explores New York, meets Mary Lou, Jacob, Tina, Queenie, Picquery, Graves (etc). Loses beasts.

Day 1 into Day 2.  Nighttime adventures with Jacob retrieving the missing beasts.  Shaw Jr. killed.  Taken into MACUSA via suitcase by Tina.

Day 2.  Taken into custody by MACUSA.  Blamed for death of Shaw Jr. and sentenced to death.  Escaped.  Gnarly-fingers, because—damn.  Saved Dougal and the Occamy.  Fought Graves.

Day 2 into Day 3.  Fighting Graves.  Defeated Grindlewald, posing as Graves.  Obliviating the bad memories of New Yorkers.  (-end)

Day 3-onward.  MACUSA investigation.

(From screenplay)

Week Later.  Jacob given Occamy egg shells.

Day Later.  Newt cleared to leave New York and return to England.

Three Months Last.  Jacob’s bakery.

*********************************

My Speculation

Scene 1: there is a 5-hour difference between New York and London, a 6-hour difference between New York and Paris/Berlin, and an 8-hour difference between New York and Moscow (to be generous). Newspapers at the end of the film set the film in December.  I’m going with the assumption Grindlewald was somewhere were a winter “night” begins between 5:00-6:30 pm one day, and sticks around until 6:00-7:00 am the next day. Imaging this helps compensate for the information we lack.

Scene 2: New York is -5, -6, or -8 hours from wherever Grindlewald’s attack in Europe was, then +unknown hours to make it the next morning in New York when Newt arrives.  In theory, Grindlewald could have had 12 hours from his attack in Europe to get to New York by Newt’s arrival – if he arrived at this time.

Scene 5: “Dusk.”  Graves is investigating the explosion at dusk.  Dusk is at the end of the day.  I’ve watched the film three times: it’s fairly light outside, so it’s probably early dusk (civil twilight).  It is the end of the day Newt has arrived in New York. Grindlewald has had over 24 hours to get to New York.

Scene 6: “Day.”  There is where it hinges on semantics.  You do not go from “dusk” to “day” in that order: dusk proceeds night, night proceeds dawn, dawn proceeds day, day proceeds dusk. Either we’re to take this exact set up as an indicator the day has changed—this is a new day from Scene 5—or else the time of the explosion in New York that Graves was investigating (Scene 5) was an oversight and meant to take place in New York at the same time as Grindlewald’s attack in Europe (Scene 1).

Scene 22: Graves is described as bruised his encounter with the unknown entity.  Unless Graves pursued pursued the entity, I do not recall him being hit with debris during the explosion the night before, or being assaulted by the entity. It was not seen in the film or written in the screenplay, but moments do happen off screen.

So, how did Graves become injured? And, when did Grindlewald arrive in New York?  These two questions are tied together, in my opinion.  Scene 5 was the snap moment for me, and Scene 22 cemented it.

It’s already been noted that Grindlewald is an exceptionally talented wizard.  It would have taken Newt about a week to cross the Atlantic by ship.  Grindlewald, through the use of Apparation, Port Key, Flew network, flying, and any other host of connections that existed at this time and for this well-connected man, could have gotten to America sooner (if he wasn’t already here and the person in Europe was an imposter—I’m all for blowing holes in my own theories).  Assuming that the real Grindlewald was in Europe for the first scene of the film, then, as presented (with time zone differences), there was approximately 24 hours between Grindlewald’s attack in Europe (Scene 1) and Graves investigating the explosion (Scene 5).  Graves has no lines during his first appearance (Scene 5).  In spite my desire to blow holes in my own theories, saying to myself, “I cannot, in good conscience, claim this knowing alternatives exist;” still, it is my bad conscience belief that this Graves may be the real Percival Graves, the only time we ever see him.

Grindlewald had escaped to America, either to escape to America just for that sake or because of the interesting disturbances and alleged visions, and he did so before Scene 5.  Again, unless Graves pursued the source of the explosion, which we could see (and it was clear even No-Majs could see the unknown entity), in Scene 5 off screen, there is no accounting for Graves’ injuries.  Unless he was accosted by someone else.  Grindlewald.  Although his time was little, by Scene 5, Grindlewald was in New York.  Graves feels more the victim of planning than opportunity, but it very well could have been pure luck with no clean up: Graves has one of the highest positions in MACUSA, and one of the positions that would satisfy Grindlewald’s interest in the agency but also its investigations into anomalies and disturbances Grindlewald could harness for his own benefit.  (Picquery would be too ostentatious to assume. Grindlewald’s a narcissist, but he’s also cunning.  Going for Picquery would just be stupid, and obvious.)  I’ve seen the arguments that Rowling said Grindlewald shape shifted (without Polyjuice) into Grindlewald, but just as quickly I’ve seen people say this is untrue.  I’ve not personally found this statement right from her, either.  The questions are, how much damage did Graves sustain when Grindlewald attacked him and would these injuries carry over through transformations, anyway?  It’s clear that Grindlewald could heal minor injuries (healing Credence’s hand), so he could theoretically heal some injuries (so major injuries would not be present); as to whether Graves’ injuries would carry over to Grindlewald’s transformation, at the least Grindlewald had the perfect excuse for injuries if anyone asked.  He was present at the site of an explosion and followed the entity (he, Grindle-Graves, discovered nothing, of course).

The other question relating to all this is, whether Graves and Credence ever knew each other?  Because of Tina’s attack on the New Salem Philanthropic Society, it is possible. The memories of all the followers, including Credence’s, should have to have been wiped.  Did Graves take sympathy on Credence and allow him to keep his whole memory of the event?  That’s unknown.  What’s known is, according to Scene 114 (p. 250) of the screenplay, Credence (as the Obscurus) remembers Tina and her defending him that night.  Whether he recalls the magical element of it is unknown.  (And, if Credence was identified as vaguely magical, could there be an excuse for a loophole to the law to allow him to keep his memory?)  On the other hand, Graves still could have used Credence as an informant even if Credence’s memory of magic was wiped—but why?  That would be more an Auror’s job than his, to keep an informant.  No matter how you spin it, MACUSA had a strict policy against fraternization with No-Majs.

Unless Graves secretly was a supporter of Grindlewald, the questionable aspects of Graves’ actions out of the eyes of Picquery could be chalked up to Grindlewald seeping through the façade of Graves.  We know how Graves should have acted by how Grindlewald was able to pass as Graves in front of people, and supplementary material (such as the Casebook) suggested Graves was very by-the-books.  Hints at Graves’ dark side could easily refer to Grindlewald, as Farrell was playing Grindlewald who was portraying Graves throughout 99% of the story.  Graves was by-the-books in front of Picquery, but Grindlewald seeped out whenever she was out of the picture.

Back to the subject, if Graves had followed the unknown black cloud of destruction back to its home (side note: I believe it’s impossible to dislike or hate Credence, unless you’re Mary Lou Barebone), he would have risked causing more damage to the city if he were caught or engaged the entity.  Not to mention, if he was truly by-the-books, either he would apprehend Credence or report Credence (possibly requesting backup). If Grindlewald had followed Credence, maybe even encountering Graves and attacking him them (just his luck that the MACUSA agent he attacked wasn’t your standard mook), he could have taken on Graves’ appearance and identity then and there and made contact with Credence before nightfall.  Because Credence may retain some memory of Graves, just as he did Tina, gaining Credence’s trust could have been easy for Grindlewald.  In my review of the screenplay, Scene 42-43 (p. 86-89), Credence and Graves’ first interaction in-story happens the night of Newt’s first real day in New York (Scene 6).  This, too, gives approximately 24 hours between Scene 6 and Scene 42, time for Grindlewald (as Graves) to communicate with Credence.

Either way, very long.  Sorry.
