Every time I watch this scene though

cloversdreams  asked:

*screamngggg* Did you say requests?? How about a KiriKami prom scene to go with the OT4 one XD??

Kirishima: It’s always the same with them, every time the four of them are together.

Kaminari:Yeah, they are cute together though don’t you think? And they are always fun to watch.

At this Kirishima gives him a questioning look

Kaminari: What? Is there something on my face?

Kirishima: Nope, but I was just wondering why you were talking about yourself?

Kaminari: Um…? I don’t think I’m following this conversation.

Kirishima: Well you are pretty cute as well as fun to look at, and I was wondering if you would do me the honours of letting us be cute together.

Kaminari: Really? You big dummy we are already together, we have been for awhile now remember?

Kirishima: Hey don’t blame me they’re not the only ones having a difficult time believing things, let’s show everyone on the dance floor who the cutest couple are, shall we?

After he had said this he held out his hand, and the other male had took it without a moment of hesitation, and though they may not have been the last people to stay there dancing. It was still evident that when they were home, the dance would continue on, two people stumbling in a dimly lit room, with one another, both not really keeping to any rhythm but the sound of two hearts in sync.

The End

Was this okay, hope this was what you were wanting ^_^

I'M WATCHING THE EPISODE WHERE JJ LEAVES (thanks to freaking strauss) AND I KNOW SHE COMES BACK BUT THIS WHOLE LITTLE MONTAGE SCENE IS ACTUALLY MAKING ME CRY AND WHEN SPENCER GOES "they can't just take you away" I'M CRYING AND THE WHOLE GARCIA SCENE THIS ISN'T FAIR

Omg I know. Hearing Spencer’s voice crack when he says that kills me every time and Garcia/Kirsten Vangsness is a fucking master crier, so I die a little inside every time. I always cry at the end even though I know what happens.

Does anybody else remember a time, long long ago, when you could just enjoy things?

You could watch a movie and just appreciate it instead of over analyzing every single scene to make sure there’s nothing remotely offensive about it.

You could have a favorite character and just like them and appreciate how great they were written and portrayed, without being told you’re terrible because they’re a villain. Even though they’re FICTIONAL and most likely were deliberately written to be likable. (Even if they were written as an evil character, I still think you have a right to like them, but maybe that’s just me)

You could love and be a fan of the actors without having to go full on FBI agent, looking into their backgrounds to make sure they are 100% perfect and had never made a mistake ever.

You could post about said actor without some busybody little fandom cop, slithering into your inbox to tell you(all too happily) that your fave is “problematic” (god, I fucking hate that word), and you’re disgusting if you still like them.

I’m in my 30’s so I remember those good ole days and it’s kind of sad to know, that most of you will never truly know how great that was. That’s a time long since forgotten. Bummer.

I saw Guardians of the Galaxy 2 again today and noticed a bunch more things on the rewatch.

  • First of all I was expecting to be bored at least some of the time (I mean, I just saw it a little over a week ago), but I never, ever was, not even once. This movie uses every minute so well. (Unlike the first one, where most of the Ronon and Thanos scenes dragged horribly even the first time, and were completely skippable on a rewatch.)
  • I love how the end of the movie recontextualizes some of the earlier scenes. For example, Mantis’s misery and fear is so obvious when she first meets the gang, and in most of her scenes afterwards. The first time you watch it, her anxiety is easily read as nervousness around strangers. The second time, though, it’s such a gut-punch to see her standing behind Ego, wringing her hands, and knowing why.
  • Drax mistaking Yondu for Peter’s actual father is another of those fantastically recontextualized scenes. The first time, it’s funny, just a tossed-off joke. The second time, though … right in the feels. Because Drax, for the most part, doesn’t get the whole concept of people pretending to be something other than what they are. He watches Yondu and Peter interact with each other and he totally gets the actual relationship in a way even they don’t.
  • Speaking of which, there is some really brilliant editing in this movie. This time around, I noticed how it cut from Ego’s “I’m your dad, Peter” right to the first installment of Yondu’s storyline (which also involved interacting with his parental stand-in, Stakar). And none of the significance of this is clear if you don’t know the characters’ emotional context! You basically can only pick it up after having seen the movie once.  
  • The pacing on all the emotional arcs is so, so good. I didn’t even really notice, the first time around, how strong the Peter-Rocket arc is, from their fighting in the beginning, through Rocket not wanting to leave him on the planet, to their little moment of connection at the end.
  • I still can’t get over how this movie has eight major characters (not counting Ego; let’s not count Ego) and every single one of them has a) an emotional arc of their own, b) at least one strong platonic relationship arc with a beginning, middle, and end, and c) at least one scene in which they get to be awesome and do something important. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. Even the noncombatants. Even the baby!
  • The first time around, I didn’t really notice how brutal Gamora and Nebula’s fight is. @sheronm pointed out how incredibly OTT Gamora picking up the ship cannon is (in a way female characters rarely get to be) but the whole fight is like that: brutal, dirty, vicious, and not sexualized in the slightest. Speaking of which …
  • The only shirtless scenes in the whole movie are guys (Peter on the ship, and Yondu at the brothel). The closest the movie comes to a romance arc is Peter and Gamora flirting and dancing. I still adore how Mantis and Drax make it explicitly clear that they aren’t into each other in a sexual/romantic way, and yet the most important relationship either of them has in the movie is with each other, and he’s willing to die to save her in the end. The movie doesn’t completely ignore romantic love (the Peter/Gamora relationship is still important), and it is true that there are a few sexist jokes (like Peter hitting on the Sovereign queen – though he apologizes for it, which is a rare thing). But overwhelmingly, this is a movie that never dismisses its female characters to “love interest” or sexualizes them any more than the male characters are.
  • When I saw this movie the first time, I thought the soundtrack and use of music was better in the first movie, but now that I’ve seen them both back to back, I was so, so wrong. They both have great music, they both have some great musical scenes, but I think it’s mostly that the first movie has a faster, more actiony soundtrack, while the second movie has a slower, gentler, more emotional soundtrack that I didn’t fully appreciate at first. But in the first movie, the music is mostly a (well-done!) melodic accompaniment to the action, while in the second movie, the songs are very carefully fit to the scenes in which they occur – whether the important thing is the peppy/awful contrast (“Come a Little Bit Closer” over the murder montage), or the whole point is that the song is so terribly, cheesily on point (“Brandy”), or sometimes because the song fits the emotional tone of the scene in the best fanvid kind of way (“Father & Son”, or the repeated use of “The Chain” for the characters being separated and then coming all back together in Peter’s love-epiphany/Power of Friendship™ moment at the end).

It’s just sooo goooood. I really didn’t expect a bombastic, ridiculous musical comedy in space to genuinely be one of the best movies I’ve seen in ages.

I’m bitter AND sticky so let’s get gooey on topic!

People just? forgot that ton of season 3 episode’s visuals are  actually amazing? I mean it could be just me but this season clearly trowed a ton of budget into some scenes an episodes! 

Super Watermelon Island got an amazing fluid fight scene between two giant women and it was as energetic as it sounds 

Gem drill, even tho it was pretty chilly on animation, had ton of detail on Steven’s faces, I find it like such a sweet detail having in mind the episode was focusing a ton on Steven and his connection with the cluster 

(this is my personal favorite)

Hit the diamond had a TON of characters on-screen at the same time, having in mind 5 of them where new characters and they had to design new clothing for 5 of them 

Even though my favorite part of this episode is the bond between Amethyst and Peridot, I think Too Short To Ride was pretty consistent, I am in love every time they put little lines under the eyes of the characters because it usually helps to remark the emotion they are feeling, is personal. 

Stevonnie’s back for Beach City Drift and the thing I like the most about this episode is the backgrounds and the color choices, they are AMAZING and pretty relaxing to watch on their own. 

Monster reunion was pretty harsh to see for me because painful scenes (aka scenes where the character is clearly in pain) make me feel incredibly bad, but I again shot out how they draw emotions and the subtle lines that make it all even better. 

More than for animation itself, I praise a lot Alone At Sea because of writing and atmosphere, and the last one really works, I felt incredibly… tense, when Jasper showed up, how she acted and the way she expressed herself, and how the colors got dark and the rain around it… just gosh

Even tho it was a pretty okay-o episode in general, I really liked Gem Hunt’s backgrounds, the whites and cold tones made a good mix with Jasper’s colors and really helped her to pop out! 

I’ve talked a lot about Bismuth, so at this point everything would feel redundant, so I’ll just say that the first and last scenes have pretty good colors, one being calm pastel tones and the other reddish dark tones #BRINGHERBACK2K17

And finally, Bubbled, which has some on the most beautiful space backgrounds i’ve seen in an animation product, is the feeling of emptiness that makes the most of the episode personally, how is literally just Steven and Eyeball and Eyeball pretty much tries to kill him, in other situations you can think about something going on, but is the fact that they are in space what makes it feel… well… empty, giving more focus to the characters that contrast the most in a sea of dark cold tones and blacks! 

hey guys if this post gets 50 notes i’ll develop all my favorite screenshots of the season into 4 x 6 photos and put them in an album in my room

friendly reminder that keith, the second shortest of the team has to bend down to look at pidge

i decided to wait until episode 8 had aired before i made a decision on how i felt about the last few episodes. there were so many great moments (not just good, truly great) and i love the show for every second of those–BAMF magnus, jace banter, maia (alisha steals every scene she’s in), luke’s protective streak, eme’s acting, alec coming into his own, simon’s story weaving in all of the characters….

and yet, here i am. “here” being this nebulous spot between frustrated and understanding the limitations of a show that features seven main characters. all seven of whom of i’ve grown to love in their own unique ways and want to see pieces of each of their stories just as much as the others. 

i can’t deny that i started watching shadowhunters because of magnus and alec, though. and episodes 7 and 8 have given me some of the best moments between them. harry and matt own every scene they’re in together. period. full stop.

so how did i end up “here?”

their first time together and magnus revealing his eyes to alec are two major events that were missing from show!canon. i had hope that both would be treated well by writers who have, so far, exceeded my expectations when it comes to magnus and alec. and yet, as i finished last night’s episode i couldn’t help but be disappointed by the writing. 

it wasn’t the lack of a morning after scene at the beginning of episode 8 that finally tipped me over the edge–it was the situation in which alec saw magnus’ cat eyes.

with one two-minute scene we could have seen magnus and alec in a pre-sex or morning after setup where magnus decides to let down the glamour for alec, and alec alone. no on-screen “sex” needed. that would’ve been even more intimate and personal than any sex scene. i can’t help but wish that, in this case, harry and matt had been given the material to show us those two events through alec and magnus’ experiences. instead we got fade-to-black, a conversation with jace, and magnus revealing those eyes in front of a woman he detests….

*sigh*

i can’t sugercoat it. in a show that has treated malec with such care until now, these two “firsts” were a complete and utter misfire. those are opportunities for show!canon that we’ll never get back.

i’m not pissed. im just beyond disappointed.

so. 

here i am. 

and if you know anything from following me, it’s that i’m cynical and sarcastic, but i also have a lot of gratitude and hope.

those misfires don’t dampen my enthusiasm to see what comes next. harry and matt consistently deliver portrayals of magnus and alec that are on point, emotional, and include details that make every second matter. i’ll still be in front of my tv next monday at 8pm excited about what comes next.

and until then…

in the iconic words of ruelle, where do we go from here? well, there’s nothing in show!canon that says (yet) that was actually the first time alec saw magnus’ eyes. and there’s nearly nothing to go on for their first time together. so, as for me, i’m going to be writing. and i hope you are too.

‘cause this is what fandom is for.

we develop new worlds. branch off into alternate timelines. we fix shit

go forth and create.

Epic Movie (Re)Watch #118 - Kingsman: The Secret Service

Spoilers below.

Have I seen it before: Yes

Did I like it then: Yes!

Do I remember it: Yes.

Did I see it in theaters: Yes.

Was it a movie I saw since August 22nd, 2009: Yes. #343.

Format: Blu-ray

1) I love this movie. It’s so much fun, it has a great blend of style and character, and it’s just a treat all around! Honestly it’s probably the best Roger Moore James Bond movie without Roger Moore in it.

Originally posted by galahadftw

2) Hey, it’s Mark Hamill!

3) The bad guys are so polite in this movie.

Thug; “I’m under very strict instructions not to hurt you.”

4) Hey, it’s Jack Davenport!

Originally posted by grandefilms

Too bad he, like Mark Hamill, dies very early on in the movie.

5) The score in this film composed by Henry Jackman and Matthew Margeson is one of the things that infuses this film with the energy it has. It has JUST enough of that classic 007 feel to know that’s what they’re going for, but not too much to distract the audience. The rest is a fun, action packed score which adds an extra dose of adrenaline to the film. I love it!

6) Sofia Boutella as Gazelle!

Originally posted by murrddocks

Boutella’s scar is quickly on the rise, having memorable rules in this, as Jaylah in Star Trek Beyond, and as the titular monster in Universal’s upcoming The Mummy reboot. And this films tells you why. It is a smaller role, especially when compared to Eggsy or the main villain Valentine, but every scene Boutella is in defines the character. She’s fierce but also incredibly loyal to Valentine, but that doesn’t mean she’s not human. You see bits of kindness, curiosity, wonder, and humor. Boutella merges all these qualities wonderfully in the villainous Gazelle and her scenes with Sam Jackson are a delight!

7) Samuel L. Jackson as Richmond Valentine.

Originally posted by richmondvalentines

Sam Jackson is great in this role. I honestly don’t think I’ve seen the legend give a bad performance. Has he been in bad movies? Sure. But he always commits 100% and gives it his all, and here’s no different.

Valentine is an interesting character in that he’s the best example of a villain believing he’s the good guy. He doesn’t want to kill people, he doesn’t want to hurt people, he wants to save the world, so he’ll get others to kill and hurt people for him. Samuel L. Jackson is a lot of fun in the role, adding a nice lisp which (according to IMDb):

Samuel L. Jackson’s character of Richmond Valentine was originally intended not to have a lisp. However, Jackson completed his first take with a lisp. Matthew Vaughn yelled “cut!”, and talked to Jackson, who revealed to Vaughn that, prior to having an acting career, he actually had a lisp, which he eventually overcame. It was also jokingly remarked that this lisp is Valentine’s reason for being villainous.

It’s a great part of the film.

8) Harry Hart/Gallahad’s need for the Kingsman to progress past snobs already establishes him as an interesting character among the spy organization. It shows he truly understands what it is to be noble. That it’s not about the circumstances of one’s birth but how you treat your fellow man. But more on that later.

9) Taron Egerton as Eggsy.

Originally posted by hartwinorlose

Although the film was largely marketed on the star power of Firth, Jackson, and even Michael Caine, it is Eggsy who’s the real hero of the film and he is awesome! Eggsy is an intriguing character with a lot of nice layers/surprises which pop up in the film in fun ways. To start we learn that - even as a “punk” - he lives by a strict moral code of not ratting on his friends and taking care of his own, but he’s not below petty pranks of revenge (as in stealing a jackass’ car and then driving it backwards). He can keep a secret and largely fends for himself, only calling upon the favor Harry Hart offered him 17 years later when he REALLY needs it.

Egerton is fantastic in the role! He embraces every layer of Eggsy. The kindness, the loyalty, the rough edges, the temper, the brashness, all the contradictions and surprises, and he blends them together in a believably way. He’s funny, charismatic, and an absolute star on screen.

10) I never understand why Eggsy’s mom decided to marry such a shit after his dad died. Maybe because he can support them? I don’t know, but Eggsy’s stepdad is a prick.

11) I love this

Harry: Your father was a brave man. A good man. And having read your files, I’d think he’d be bitterly disappointed in the choices you’ve made.

Eggsy: You can’t talk to me like that.

Harry: Huge I.Q., great performance in primary school. And it all went tits up. Drugs, petty crime, never had a job.

Eggsy: Do you think there’s a lot of jobs going around here, yeah?

Harry: Doesn’t explain why you gave up your hobbies. First prize, regional under tens’ gymnastics, two years in a row. Your coach had you pegged as Olympic team material.

Eggsy: Yeah, well, when you grow up around someone like my stepdad, you pick up new hobbies pretty quick.

Hart: Now of course. Always someone else’s fault. Who’s to blame you for quitting the Marines? You were halfway through training, doing brilliantly, but you gave up.

Eggsy: Because my mum went mental, banging on about losing me as well as my dad. Then we wouldn’t be cannon fodder for snobs like you, judging people like me from your ivory towers with no thought about why we do what we do. We ain’t got much choice, you get me? And if we was born with the same silver spoon up our arses, we’d do just as well as you, if not better.

I think this is great for a few reasons. It tells us a lot about Eggsy (gymnast, marine corp, huge IQ) but it SHOWS us a lot too. It shows up that he respects himself and that he’ll stand by the decisions he’s made in the past. It shows us that Eggsy takes shit from no one, no matter how in the right society may say they are.

12) I love the fight scene in the bar, otherwise known as “Manners Maketh Man”.

It is our first real showcase of the film’s stellar action sequences, which hold up for the rest of our two hour ride. I think the action is most marked by a fun, fast pace, but also incredible fight choreography. It’s an excellent case of action/reaction or action/consequences. Everything leads into everything else and it all flows so beautifully.

13) Remember how I said Eggsy had some nice layers?

Harry [trying to describe training Eggsy to be a spy]: Did you see the film Trading Places?

Eggsy: No.

Harry: How about Nikita? Pretty Woman? Now, my point is that the lack of a silver spoon has set you on a certain path that you needn’t stay on. If you’re prepared to adapt and learn, you can transform.

Eggsy: Oh, like in My Fair Lady.

Hart: You’re full of surprises.

Eggsy is not some moron tough guy who’s masculinity is too fragile to watch and appreciate My Fair Lady. Harry obviously has this image in his mind of what Eggsy is (a guy who likes raunchy comedies and action movies).

14) Is it me or is the idea of a spy organization run totally on its own above any sort of law or government shady as fuck? And they use fear tactics to train their recruits and want them to willingly shoot a poor dog in a cold blood (more on that bullshit later).

15) I love Roxy.

Originally posted by wonderlandinmymind

She doesn’t get nearly enough screen time but is given some nice development in the time she does.

  • Is able to be civil in a competitive field without it getting in the way of her goals.
  • Has an incredible fear of heights and/or falling, but that doesn’t stop her from doing what needs to be done towards the end of the film (which is a great arc in and of itself).
  • Is willing what needs to be done to accomplish her goals (like shooting a dog to be in Kingsman).

We see her and Eggsy develop a nice friendship. Not a romance, not a will they won’t they, a mutual respect among peers and also platonic support. If the sequel can improve on the original in one way (and listen carefully Matthew Vaughn) it would be to include more Roxy!

16) Can we be honest? If there was a US president who would participate in the planning of mass genocide from this current decade, it wouldn’t be Obama.

17) The water tank!

Originally posted by egertoness

Not only an example of the film’s great action, but also imaginative set pieces and classic spy thrills. Also - and I say this as a hetero guy - but Eggsy’s abs have even me going DAMN.

18) Me too Sam Jackson. Me too.

Valentine [after he has to blow up Professor Arnold’s head or risk exposure]: “He made me kill Professor Arnold. I goddamn loved Professor Arnold.”

19) This line really sticks with me.

Valentine [after Gazelle says she reached out to various secret services]: “Beijing. So freaky how there’s no recognizable name for the Chinese Secret Service. Now that’s what you call a secret, right?”

20) I’m a dog person, okay? I love this.

21) Remember how I said that Kingsman is a shady spy organization? Well it should really follow the Captain America rule of ethics and not include any bullies in its services. The only two candidates who aren’t pricks are Eggsy and Roxy!

22) The skydiving scene - akin to the water tank scene - is a great example of the film’s wonderful set pieces and fun writing. It also gives us Roxy’s fear of heights and/or falling and Eggsy supporting his friend (and later fellow teammates) even though if he left her there it would mean he’d advance through the program. It’s so great! Even Merlin (Mark Strong) is getting tense watching!

23) I get hungry for McDonald’s every time I see this film.

Originally posted by robinwright

24) The scene where Harry visits Valentine at his home for a gala which turns into a dinner date (basically) is a very Bond scene. They each have a sense for who the other is but play nice, act civil, make vague threats. I call it “Into The Lion’s Den.” Very 007.

25) This. Fucking. Quote.

Harry (quoting Ernest Hemingway): “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”

Originally posted by iaminfiniteus

I live by this fucking quote.

26) This film has some pretty great humor.

Harry (showing Eggsy how a knife hidden in a boot works): “Now do your very best impersonation of a German aristocrat’s formal greeting.”

Originally posted by anthony94825

Harry: “No, Eggsy.”

[Harry clicks his heels and a blade pops out of his right shoe]

27) THIS STUPID BULLSHIT WITH THE DOG!!!!

Arthur [the head of Kingsman, handing Eggsy a gun]: “Shoot the dog.”

So the final test to be a Kingsman agent is to shoot a dog who’ve you spent the last few months training and growing attached to and if you shoot the dog you get in.

(GIF source unknown [if this is your GIF please let me know].)

And later it turns out the gun was only filled with blanks and Harry says Kingsman only condone the taking of a life when it’s necessary.

(GIF originally posted by @karenmpage)

We only condone the taking of a life when it’s considerate and thought out, but we want to make sure all our agents are mindless coldblooded killers who follow orders without questions because that always works so damn well. You know, because we’re the good guys.

(GIF originally posted by @marshmallow-the-vampire-slayer)

 28) The fucking church scene. 

Originally posted by lewiebaloo

So Harry goes to a hate-group church in America which Valentine has shown an interest in to inspect it, and we hear a little bit of their extremely hateful rhetoric before Harry gets up to leave…

Harry: Would you excuse me?

Female Patron: Where are you going?

Female Patron: Hey! What’s your problem?

(GIF source unknown [if this is your GIF please let me know].)

And then Harry gets up to leave and Valentine (who’s in a nearby building) starts a mysterious machine he tests out on the church. What follows is one of the greatest action sequences to grace the screens of cinema:

Content Warning: The below video features hyper-violent, bloody, stylized violence. Watch at your own discretion.

Everything about this scene is perfect. The choice of music feeds directly into the high speed sense of pacing, and the choice to speed up the film just a bit not only supports that same aspect of pacing but also gives the scene the quality of a runaway train. Because that’s what Harry is right now: he’s out of control! He has no ability to make decisions he just lets loose with every hateful whim that pops in his head. But probably the thing that makes this scene work as well as it does is the decision to make it a continuous shot. You cut back to Eggsy, Merlin, and Valentine/Gazelle as they witness this event, but the fight inside of the church itself is a continuous shot (or edited to appear as such). This goes back to my earlier point of how the action of the film plays very much into cause/effect or actions/consequences. You witness every little thing that happens. Harry runs out of bullets? He starts to beat someone with his gun. Someone just tried to stab him? He takes the knife for himself. It is continuous. It flows. And it is just an adrenaline filled scene to watch.

Note: I saw this twice in theaters, the second time with my parents. My mom loves Colin Firth and did not take too kindly to the fact that he murdered a bunch of people. She thought the scene was great, but she didn’t like that they made Colin Firth do that. My mom is very cute sometimes (like when she asked me in Rouge One when Chewbacca was going to show up, knowing full well he didn’t).

29) After the church scene, Valentine shoots Harry point blank in the head and hates how it feels. Gazelle points out that he just killed everyone in that church.

Valentine: “No, no, no, they killed each other.”

That is so fucking important for Valentine’s character. He doesn’t tack responsibility for any of his actions. He doesn’t see himself as the villain. He sees himself as a savior who hasn’t even killed anyone!

30) Note: The scene I’m about to discuss is best experienced without knowing that it’s going to happen. If you want to be surprised by it, skip on to note #31.

So skipping ahead a bit to when Eggsy has infiltrated the enemy base (since all the notes I made during the preceding scenes I’d made already), the way everyone’s head blows up in a scene I call “Pomp & Circumstance” is hysterical.

In contrast to the hyper violent and sometimes too realistic fight in the church, the filmmakers opt to make a more cartoony and artistic violent scene. And if you don’t know it’s coming you laugh so hard when it happens (hence the note above).

31) The song choice of “Give It Up” as Valentine operates his hate machine gives it a similar sense of pacing as “Freebird” did in the church scene. This film really understands that music is it’s friend.

32) This scene seems weirdly empowering towards women.

Swedish Princess (who is captive in Valentine’s base, after Eggsy says he has to save the world before he rescues her): “If you save the world, we can do it in the asshole.”

And in any other movie this would be written off as, “Oh, a guy wrote that line.” But this script was written by a man and a woman, meaning she had to okay it. So…weirdly empowering, right?

I think I should move on.

33) The fight scene between Gazelle and Eggsy may not be the sheer perfection which is the church scene, but it’s a fun watch nonetheless and it uses Gazelle’s blade legs to their advantage.

Originally posted by foxmovies

34) Remember how I said this film’s score incorporates JUST enough 007 in it? Well the little bit of horn we get just before Gazelle dies represents that perfectly. That’s a very James Bond moment.

35)

Valentine [after Eggsy has fatally wounded him]: “Is this the part where you say some really bad pun?”

Eggsy: “It’s like you said to Harry: this ain’t that kind of movie, bruv.”

It kinda is.

36) And we come full circle.

It is just a fun ride with great style, characters, and acting. A true delight through and through. Go watch it now if you can!

Up in flames

A/N: First off, yikes. In this fic Sam & Jess have been together since freshman year at Stanford. After almost three years of dating, Jess finds out that she’s pregnant. They somehow balance school and parenthood and are doing a pretty great job at it when Dean comes crawling through the window Halloween night…This does not follow the pilot episode of SPN.

This is my entry for @daughters-and-winsisters writing challenge.

Warnings: Angst, character death.

Sam x Daughter!Reader   Dean x Niece!Reader   Sam x Jess

Hearing a crashing noise coming from the front room Sam leaped out of bed. He glanced at Jess to make sure she was okay before he slowly walked out of his room. Carefully walking down the hall, avoiding the creaky parts of the wooden floor, Sam opened the door to his nearly six month old daughter’s nursery. He reached over and placed his hand on your chest; feeling his hand rise with your breaths as he looked around the room.

Satisfied that you were safe, Sam left your room and made his way into the living room. However, as soon as he walked in he was attacked, he was quickly pinned to the ground but as he looked up at his attacker he realized it was none other then his older brother, “Dean?”

After a few more words were exchanged, along with Sam flipping Dean over onto his back, proving he wasn’t rusty, the boys stood and stared at each other. Sam was in shock that his brother was standing in front of him, he had a million questions which were interrupted when Jess flipped the light on.

“Sam?” She asked sleepily.

One awkward introduction and a few moments of silence Sam was about to question why Dean was there when your cry was heard from down the hall. Dean whipped his head over at Sam, wondering why there was a baby in the apartment.

“I’ll get her.” Jess told Sam with a smile.

Reaction to Losing You in the Mall…

A/N these two are very similar, so i combined them. I hope that’s okay. and thank you so much second Anonnie~ and i totally get what you mean first Anonnie, If I could, i would get lost going to my living room lol. ALSO, a lot of requests are coming in, so I’m working my hardest, so please be patient! but keep them coming in! ‘cause I’ll DEFINITELY get to yours. 

Kai ~


Suho…

You had this poor boy worried so hard for a good 30 minutes of him walking around trying to find you. He even talked to the staff in the mall and was about to ask the mall cops to go find you, however he caught a glimpse of you and quickly walked over to you while calling out your name. He would be pissed at first, because he really thought the worst had happened to you. However, after you explain that you saw a new ice cream shop and got you two some ice cream from there, his heart would melt at the thought that you were thinking of him and trying to do something nice for him. He would thank you, but tell you not to wander off like that because it’s not good for his heart. He would then make sure to keep you close to him and keep a close eye on you for the rest of the visit at the mall.

He is having none of this. This has happened one too many times. 

D.O.: “I don’t know why she does this, this always happens. When I find her she better get her little disappearing, hide-n-go-seek, Casper the Friendly Ghost ass in the car, ‘cause I am having none of this. Not today.”

Jk, honestly, he would act smart and call you and if that didn’t work, he would just simply re-trace his steps to find you. Though throughout the whole time, he would be extremely worried about your well being, hoping that you are safe and not scared. Once he found you he would take you home where neither of you can get lost.


Chanyeol…

This would be hilarious, that is… for anyone watching the scene unfold. He would freak out and be over-the-top worried about you. He would search every floor and store for you. He would be a clumsy giant, tripping over things, bumping into people and display stands in stores. He would have his phone out, waiting for you to call him, but not thinking that, hey, maybe I should try calling her? ‘Cause he would be too much of a mess to think logically. He would be searching in the food court, when suddenly he sees you on the second floor.

Chanyeol: “I’m lost… Where you at…? Y/N!?”

Xiumin…

He would attempt to look for you, like really hard, but after an hour of searching, he would mentally and physically tired, and just wanting to go home. He would have tried calling you, texting you, calling the boys and seeing if you tried calling any of them. He would be sitting on a bench, when just by coincidence you would be walking by. He would be soooooo happy to see you and would jump up and run to the other side of the mall to you so you guys don’t get separated again. He would pull you into a big loving hug asking you how your little adventure was and if you were okay.

Xiumin: (Gif is little XiuXiu happily waddling running towards you when he spots you.)

Lay…

This poor boy would be completely confused, and in a sense, in his own way lost. When he first notices you’re lost, guilt would overflow him. He would think how horrible of a boyfriend he is that he allowed you to get lost. He would also be worried about whether you were scared or mad at him for letting this happen. However, after half an hour of searching for you, he would begin to wonder if you’re really the one that is lost, or if he’s the one that’s lost.

Lay: “Wait, is she lost? Or am I?”

Chen…

Chen would find this hilarious and would take his sweet time looking for you. He would be looking through clothes in stores, he would try samples of food that were given out. It would take a loooong time for you two to meet up because of his blasé attitude of the whole situation. Eventually would you find him, and he would be trying out a gourmet chocolate while chatting happily with the young man holding the tray. When you walk up to him he would simply turn to you with a smirk and say, “Oh, Jagi, did you have a good adventure, here try some Swedish chocolate. It’s really good.” He would offer you a tiny paper cup with a square of chocolate like nothing happened.

Kai…

All he would care about is your safety. He would be pretty calm about the whole situation though, I mean, you’re in a mall, how much danger could there be? Also, eventually you would run into one another, so he’s not too worried. If you were out in town, then he would be more concerned, but instead he just keeps his phone out in case you try to call while he texts you asking where you are. When he finds you he wouldn’t make a big deal about it, knowing that you’re old enough to care for yourself and he doesn’t need to treat you like a kid. Also, this happens quite a bit, and every time you’re okay. He would simply take your hand while asking what store you would like to go to next.

Baekhyun…

Surprisingly, he would get a little upset about this. He wouldn’t be annoyed, he would just be worried about you and your well being. He would take it seriously in trying to find you. He would text and call you non-stop, hoping that you would answer and be okay. When he finally finds you, it would be like getting a stern talk from your mother. He would tell you how dangerous it can be to wander off on your own, especially when you get lost so easily like yourself. He would then take the liberty of holding your hand for the rest of your outing, not wanting to take the chance of you getting lost again.

Luhan…

You would be out with Luhan and Lay one day and would get separated pretty quickly. So the two boys would spend about an hour trying to find you, eventually giving up and deciding to sit on a bench and wait for you to find them. It would take another whole hour for you to find them, and when you did they would give you that look (cue gif). While Luhan asks, “You had fun on your nice little outing Jagi?” What that really means is, “Bitch where you been? We don’t have time to play your little hide-n-seek games today.” He would then proceed to hold your hand the rest of the outing.

Tao…

He would be ready. Like, anyone who saw his face would know something was up. He wouldn’t be mad at you or frustrated, he would just be ready to kick some if he saw you in any kind of danger. He would had a cold exterior, but on the inside he would be dying with each passing minute that you weren’t there by his side. Once he got you, he would ask if anyone bothered you while you were on your own. 

Tao: “Anyone bother you? Touch you?”

Y/N: “No, no one bothered me.”

Tao: “What about that guy? He looks suspicious.”

(yasss Tao, look at him with that metal pole, so sexy and intimidating)

Sehun…

Sehun would be scared for himself. He would be worried about how he would get home, if he was really the one who was lost, would you be mad at him for losing you, would you be making him dinner tonight or no because you would be pissed he lost you? All those things would be running through his head, and while he’s looking for you, he would kind of resemble a child who’s lost and looking for his mother. Once he found you though, he would be elated and so happy. One, because he’s no longer alone and can get home safely, and two because he actually missed you and really needs you, and this helped him realize that.

Gif: (Shy little Sehun when he realizes he needs you and actually relies on you for a lot.)

Kris…

He would be another rational thinker, calling you and texting you. However, he would be really worried for your sake, he knew how often and easily you get lost, and thoughts of you being scared and worried would be running through his head. He would mistake girls for being you out of him desperately trying to get you back into that safety of his presence. Once he found you he would pull you into a big warm hug, kissing your forehead once and asking if you were alright. He would ask you not to do that again, for both his sanity and your safety. He would proceed to hold your hand for the rest of the outing.

#ThankYouBones Week

Day 8: 5 B&B moments that made you fall in love with them

This is by far the most difficult day of the challenge for me. This was the day I dreaded most. Because it’s just that- a challenge. I could sooner choose a favorite family member than be forced to select just five Booth and Brennan scenes. Like most, I knew- right from the beginning. I knew that these two were going to be both my greatest joy and my ultimate downfall. I knew from the very first “Don’t call me Bones.” I fall more and more in love with them with each passing scene. It all commenced in the pilot, and will live on through the finale. So the first and last scenes I chose are symbolic of that fact. Because I loved Booth and Brennan from the moment I met them, and I will continue to love them until the end of time. This couple radiates true love. They are the most genuine embodiment of pure unadulterated love on television. Booth and Brennan have proved time and time again that with mutual trust, support, and love, they can conquer anything life throws at them. “You know we’re better together.” There is no obstacle they cannot overcome together. No battle they cannot win. They can bend, but they will never break. Their bond is truly impenetrable. They are partners. They are a team.  And at the end of the day, when all is said and done, they still want to spend their time together. They love this. They love their routine. Booth and Brennan have been each one another’s standard from the start. They are each other’s partner for life. And they are each other’s eventually- ALWAYS.

Pretend as though I included every last B&B scene from the entirety of the series. Because that’s what I would do if it was possible. I feel truly blessed to have watched these two for twelve incredible seasons. They are my home. 

Differences between the Anime and the Manga - Intro

I’m gonna be posting the differences between the anime and the manga for every episode. I’ll be doing each episode of s2 as it comes out, and in between each episodes, I’ll be doing s1.

Just like many others, I was hyped for season 2, so I decided to re-watch season 1 of the anime. It was only my 3rd time watching s1, and this time, I decided to re-read the manga as well along the way, just to see what kind of changes the anime team made.

I read the manga more than 10 times, and even though I knew that there were many changes in the anime, I was still surprised by how much.

First, I wanna say that I love the anime, I think the animation is amazing, the voice acting is perfect, and the music is beautiful. I liked watching every scene from the manga animated, and I liked watching fillers that we knew happened in the manga, but they weren’t shown (for example in ep26 that would be Mike slicing up the Titans, that was awesome).

So I’m hyped for season 2, and I can’t wait to watch all those amazing manga panels animated.

However, I don’t like when scenes from manga are deleted or changed, and I’m not interested to watch someone else’s head-cannons.

Hi yes hello please don’t imagine John and Emori, hand in hand, wandering through the ship one night and turning down a very familiar corridor. Don’t imagine John slowing for a moment, confused then realizing, not wanting to go any further but not wanting to worry Emori. Don’t imagine Emori coming across a door with the words “Murphy Family” written clumsily in black ink along it, like a child’s handwriting. Don’t imagine Emori opening the door and cautiously stepping inside, like she’s treading on unhallowed ground, scanning the walls and beds and empty drawers and realizing that this was his home. This was his family. This was his happy. Don’t imagine John looking around the room he hasn’t seen in years and remembering. Remembering his parents dancing to music when they thought he was sleeping. His mother reading him stories. His father teaching him to tie his shoes. The empty spot on the bed where his father used to sleep. The corner his mother would collapse in after a night of liquor. The blood stain on the carpet from when his mother lost control. His mother choking on the floor, death in her eyes. Don’t imagine him hearing the sounds he thought he’d finally escaped from. His parents laughter, rolling marbles on metal, his mothers lullabies, the whispers, the sobs, the moans, the screams that echoed through the vents, the machine hum, the silence. Don’t imagine Emori turning back to him and seeing the sorrow written across his face, the pain buried deep behind his eyes that he never lets show. Don’t imagine him letting go, letting the quiet tears fall, letting his guilt wash over, and Emori embracing him. Don’t imagine them just standing there, holding tight to each other, desperate to hug away the past. Don’t imagine John, whilst stroking Emori’s hair, looking around the room and realizing that that life is over now. But I’m holding a new one in my arms. Don’t imagine John cupping her face in his hand, staring at the person he loved more than anything in the world, at the person who saved his life and made living worth it, and it hitting all him at once. This could be ours. We could have a home. We could build a life here. We could be together. I want a life with you. Don’t imagine him taking her badass hand- the thing that denied her of her own home- and kissing it. Imagine John Murphy, smiling at the love of his life, forgetting every terrible thing his past has shown him, remembering all the good he’s ever had, and looking without fear into the future, and saying “Welcome home”

What she says: I’m fine
What she means: In the 2012 movie adaptation of Les Mis, why does Grantaire go from sitting on the front of the carriage wearing a coat and a hat to sitting in some random cafe with a girl on his knee in a matter of seconds? Was George Blagden acting as an extra and the directors just hoped we wouldn’t notice? Or were they suggesting that Grantaire couldn’t bear to see Enjolras die so as soon as the conflict started he ran away to bury his sorrows with wine and a girl? If that was the case how did it happen so quickly? How does time work in the Les Mis movie universe? At the start of the film Fantine is shown to go from fairly ‘normal’ to having a cough in just a few scenes which are probably set over a matter of days, weeks at most. Does time pass differently in France? Do they experience shorter days and shorter years? Back to Grantaire, when he kisses Mme Hucheloup off her chair why does he go from wearing a sash around his waist to not wearing one even though the shot didn’t change? Is Grantaire always doomed to have trouble in the wardrobe department?

For the Love of a Queen. Black Sails Episode Seven


In last week’s episode of Black Sails, we witnessed the final moments of Madi Scott, Queen of the Maroons. If episode six was about the cycle of life coming to an end, episode seven centers on the aftermath of  Madi’s “death” and how the people she loved are dealing with it.

We open the episode with the Queen Mother sitting quietly clutching what looks to be a piece of jewelry, Madi’s maybe. It’s immediately obvious that she’s been told of Madi’s death. You can see the grief on her face. After a moment, Silver walks into the room. You hear his crutch before you actually see him, and in that instance the Queen Mother gathers herself. She puts her face back on or at least she attempts to until Silver starts to talk…

~ I wasn’t able to say goodbye to her. So I didn’t know what she would have wanted me to say to you right now, if anything at all. She and I we’ve become close. So I think I have some sense of what it might have been. She was curious and strong and not made to be hidden away from the world. She was able to see it before she died and she was fighting for something she believed in, when she died. ~ Silver

~ You knew her well.~ Queen Mother

~ I loved her. I believe she loved me. I think she would have wanted you to know that, too.~ Silver

You know how you sometimes ask for something and then once you get it, you’re disappointed. This wasn’t one of those times. Since Season three, one of the items on my Black Sails wish-list was a scene between Silver and the Queen Mother. Of course, I wanted it for the obvious reasons, Madi. However, I was also dying to see how these two witty, intelligent, so very different characters would play off each other. I never could have imagined that their first solo scene would be in a room surrounded by Madi’s books and cloaked in heartache.

I adored the fact that Silver, lover of language that he is, was able to give voice to the Queen Mother’s grief. Its appropriate really because when you’ve suffered a lost as great as hers, you don’t have the words to describe it, especially when the pain is so fresh. As she’s sitting there she is probably wondering why this presumptuous pirate is invading the worst moment of her life, but then he starts to speak. I immediately realize it’s his Madi voice. By that I mean, Silver changes his tone and inflection frequently depending on who he is talking to. I tend to think of this voice as the “sincerity” voice and he normally only uses it with Madi. What a strong decision the writers made to essentially have Silver “eulogize” his love. Even more touching was the fact that Madi’s mother recognized the truth in what he was saying. The man clearly knew her child. His description of her showed that. So when he admitted on a broken breath that he loved her, the Queen Mother “knew”. She “knew” that he was speaking the truth and it seemed to give her some comfort that her only child, however briefly, found love and peace in the middle of so much turmoil.

Our next scene takes us to a meeting of the Alliance. All the pirates and maroons are there discussing the upcoming war. Silver walks in and Flint asks him “how is she”, meaning the Queen Mother. Silver states simply “breathing”. Who could know that one simple word could be so gut-wrenching and powerful. It’s obviously true though. Madi is dead and the people who loved her best are merely existing.

So… back to the meeting where we now find out that not only does Flint want to invade the entire West Indies, but also Boston. No, you didn’t misread that. Captain Flint now wants to declare war on Boston and even Silver is surprised. Where is Billy when you need him to point out the ridiculousness of this? Well, he’s kind of preoccupied (it’s coming), but Julius steps up to the plate. Julius calls straight bullshit on this plan of Captain Flint.

~ Fools. You’re all fools if you think this road leads to where he says it does. What happens when our enemy realizes that all he has to do to defeat us is to  take away that common cause? Turn one against the other. And when that happens, as it is all but certain to do, which one of us standing here are likely to be the ones who benefit and which the ones sold back into their chains? ~ Julius

I’m absolutely loving the fact that Julius is not here to play anyone’s fool and in the process reminds these emotional pirates that he saved their asses, lest they forget. That said though, Long John didn’t take to kindly to Julius not toeing the line and busted out the Pirate King voice to tell Julius to get the fuck off his Bae’s island if he wasn’t going to support the cause. Every time, I watch this scene I cackle. Mostly, because the Queen Mother has to step in and calm down her son-in-law before all hell breaks loose.

The Queen Mother invites Julius and Ruth to meet with her. The purpose is to smooth some of the feathers that Silver has ruffled and to also explain why she set aside her initial mistrust of the pirates to form the alliance. It’s interesting that Julius has now firmly stepped into the role of the Queen Mother. He is now all for building a wall and saving who you can save. The Queen Mother, on the other hand, has witnessed the death of her husband and her daughter as a result of this. Maybe, just maybe she wants their deaths to have a greater meaning. At the end of the conversation Julius states….

~ No one changes the world. Not like this. Not all at once. The world is too strong for that. ~ Julius

… and in that moment, I realize, not for the first time, that Julius is going to be a true player in this game. So many layers, yet to be revealed.

Flint goes in search of Silver and finds him in Madi’s library, collapsed on the floor and surrounded by her books. So many parallels between him and the Queen Mother in this episode. Both sitting in the library, both clutching Madi’s things and both holding on with both hands to their love for her.

 I loved this scene between Luke and Toby. Luke does that thing where he looks away while delivering most of his monologue. Gawd, does it work. You can feel that Silver is overwhelmed, devastated and raw. You can also feel that he’s bothered by the fact that he can’t pull it together. That’s why he looks away. He doesn’t want Flint to see the pure anguish in his face. Toby’s choice to sit here was masterful and so real. That move said, I’m taking off my Captain hat and I’m just going to sit here and comfort my friend. Ugh…

I say ugh, because watching this I’m so conflicted. Silver has just expressed to Flint that the Resistance has to continue. He can’t deal with the fact that Madi’s death might be in vain. Again…. paralleling the Queen Mother. Flint responds in the most supportive way. He reminds Silver that he saved him from “drowning” before and that he was going to return the favor.

~ Look at me. I will do the same for you. I give you my word. But in order to do that you have to trust my judgement for a little while. While yours is reeling~ Flint

The part of me that wants Silver to have one damn person, still alive, that gives a fuck about him rejoiced. Somebody is going to help my Bae while he’s in the midst of this storm. But… the 4 season watching chick knows better. This is Flint we’re talking about. Flint. Yeah, so it’s still Stranger Danger, we don’t know him and Lawd please send Madi back because it’s Flint.

Speaking of Queen Madi…. We find out from one of Woode Rogers’ men that one of the members of the Pirate Resistance wants to speak with him and only him. I told ya’ll earlier, Billy was busy. Once Billy receives his audience with the Governor, he explains that he himself is actually Long John Silver. He is the one who recruited the pirates, sabotaged the Governor’s supply lines and turned water into wine. He was in full on god-mode. I’m assuming the purpose was to “show” Rogers that he “made” Long John Silver and John Silver was still the useless, one-legged creature that he has always been.

Side note… I really can’t wait until Billy has to eat those words.


Billy has come to broker a deal with the Psycho Guv. He explains that the other Pirates left him to die and therefore he wants his revenge, and he has just the right instrument to accomplish that…


Yep, that’s right. The Queen ain’t dead ya’ll. Evidently, the future Mrs. Silver has just as many lives as her beloved. So, I’m sure by this moment, you’ve figured out Billy’s plan right? Let’s trade the Queen for the cache. That will be the perfect revenge. I’ll just sit back and watch Silver and Flint destroy each other. This shit would be comical, but we’ve seen it before. Remember, when Woode Rogers was bested by Eleanor and decided to sail his ass to Havana? This is that moment. This won’t end well. Oh… the parallels.

So Governor Rogers has Madi moved to her own private cell and heads down to discuss terms with her. Interesting though, the very first thing he does is mention Eleanor. Someone, Billy probably, has informed him that Madi was with Eleanor before she died. He has questions, but the Queen ain’t answering. When he finally realizes that Queen Madi is indeed a Queen (meaning she doesn’t have time for your shenanigans or feelings) he gets down to business. He presents her with a contract or terms, if you will. Basically, he will emancipate all of Madi’s people on two conditions: She turns in all future Runaway slaves and she cuts off all ties to the Pirate’s. Didn’t Julius warn us about the “man”? Didn’t he specifically say these divide and conquer tactics would be forthcoming? Well, that didn’t take long. However, if we don’t know anything else, we know that Madi loves her people. All enslaved people and at the very least one Pirate. So in her regal way she said fuck you and I’ll die fighting, bitch! Oh and by the way, I stay ready so I don’t have to get ready. Daddy saw to that. Remember, Queen Madi is well versed on this villain ya’ll.



So now that we know that Queen Madi is alive, all we need is for her favorite people to find out and go get her, right? If only it were so simple. The Queen Mother receives a letter from Rogers informing her that Madi is alive, and he’s holding her hostage for the cache. Silver is relieved and more than happy to turn over the treasure, but Flint and even the Queen Mother are hesitant to do that. The Queen Mother through tears tells Silver that “my daughter is everything to me as I believe she is to you, but that cache is critical to the success of the war…”. Flint chimes in to tell Silver that they can pay the ransom or have the war, but they can’t have both and that’s when things go left…..


~ A week ago, you were willing to trade this money for a fucking fort and now its too important to trade for Madi’s life? ~ Silver

~ Things have changed~ Flint

~ Nothing has changed that justifies trading her life for YOUR war. ~ Silver

~ No one is saying that we let her die. ~ Flint

~ No? Because that is certainly what it sounds like. ~ Silver

~ We will find a way to get her back. We just cannot sacrifice the cache in order to do that. ~ Flint

~ Is this war more important than her life? Answer the question. I wanna hear you say it. Is this war more important than her life? ~ Silver

~ Right now with what’s at stake, yes it is more important.~ Flint

~ Oh, fuck you! ~ Silver


There was quite a bit more dialogue after the FUCK YOU heard around the world. Flint made promises to save Madi and kill anyone who stood in their way. The Queen Mother looked distraught as hell, and Silver appeared to be managed. If just for a moment, you could be led to believe that he’s okay with following Flint’s plan. Until this….

Israel Hand’s once told Flint “ how long do you think he can suffer it before he decides he can do better than you.” Well, judging from that look, I think we’re about to find out.

god i love brotherhood hate so much tbh fuck brotherhood (sorry if you like brotherhood but fuck brotherhood)

listen basically that long post i just reblogged brought up my biggest beef with brotherhood and manga (tho ive never read manga and have heard its better with characters) is that it ignores its characters

i like good plots and i get bored when something doesnt have a plot and is ONLY characters. but whats even worse to me is when its ONLY plot. the characters and plot should drive each other and the characters should be affected by the plot

FUCKING BROTHERHOOD doesnt let its characters recover from trauma and shit

i remember reading ed didnt cry until the last episode and i was like “wtf i remember him having some awesome crying scenes” and then i realized i was remembering 2003, which has BEAUTIFUL and realistic character development and thats when i got super pissed

AND FUCKING AL you know when marta is killed in his armor in 2003 its so fucking horrific and then you have the same thing in brotherhood and youre like “oh no how is al going to feel after this poor thing” and he JUST BRUSHES IT OFF? and later he goes on this rant of “im sick of watching people die” and it just pisses me off like im sorry, al, i didnt even realize those deaths affected you but if you wanna bring them up to motivate yourself to become stronger then sure do that even though its total bullshit

AND NINA! i know nina IS brought up a few times in brotherhood, but every time im loterally like “oh yeah that happened.” And i dont feel anything. When ed says at the end how he couldnt even save a little girl, despite how epic the scene is, i was kinda pissed because it felt like such a cheap thing to mention since i didnt see ed or al actually affected by nina. just feeling sad for her every once in while isnt being affected by it. Being affected by it is when the experience permanently leaves an impact

you get that in 2003. every thing that happens to the brothers permanently affects their growth, rather than it all being episodic events that add to their male protag angst (“what doesnt kill me makes me stronger lol what emotions? What trauma? I use it to fuel my righteous fury hiyah!”), every thing pushes them slightly further to who they end up at the end of the series

i can and have gone on and on on how much brotherhood characters piss me off because they all came out of the series almost the same as they went in, learning concrete lessons but not actually changing psychologically/realistically nor GROWING, and how every character got what they originally wanted in the way they wanted it. and imo, thats BAD character writing. It works sometimes based on the story, but with something like fma with these goal-driven characters who face challenges and trauma im order to get what they want, they SHOULDNT ultimately get what they want. And if they do get what they want, it should be either that they dont need it, they dont want it anymore, or they get it in a more bittersweet/twisted way (like roy couldve gotten what he wanted without getting his eyesight back and becoming fuhrer. He would lose the more surface goal, but he could still achieve the more abstract underlying motive of fixing the country.)
