Since I watched Beauty and the Beast a couple of weeks ago, I have fallen in love with the man behind the CGI and digital editing for the Beast: Dan Stevens. The past two weeks have been me going on a Dan Stevens spree, meaning watching quite a few of the TV shows and movies he’s in. And oml, this man can fucking act. He’s so good and he masters roles that are totally different from the one before.
In the FX show, Legion, he plays David Haller (aka Legion) from the Marvel Comics. He’s basically a cool, badass mutant with psychic abilities and other cool powers and is diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. (LIKE HONESTLY THE EFFECTS ON THIS SHOW ARE SO FREAKING COOL. U HAVE TO WATCH IT IF UR INTO THE SCI-FI SHIT OR SOME PRETTY GOOD GRAPHICS AND EFFECTS MAN)
AND THEEEEEEN, I found out this boy is also in Downton freaking Abbey. I’ve been wanting to watch it because of Dame Maggie Smith but then when I heard Dan was in it, I had to watch it. AND LET ME JUST SAY THAT MY POSH BOY, MATTHEW CRAWLEY, HAS STOLEN MY HEART. HE’S SO SWEET AND ADORABLE AND UGH I LOVE HIM SO MUCH…..then that Christmas special came and crushed my heart and made me more emo. fuck.
(this posh little fucker fml) (jk i love matthew)
And then I decided to watch a movie he was in, which was The Guest. This thriller is actually pretty intense though. I’ve only watched half of the movie and daaaaaaaammmmnnnnnn. wtf man. (here’s the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-psayRM1XqU )
bUT LET’S BE HONEST. DAN BE LOOKING HELLA HOT IN THIS MOVIE. I MEAN….
no joke, the first gif on this post is my reaction to this gif ^^^
And finally, we mustn’t forget about the role that made me go on a spree in the first place.
Beauty and the freaking Beast
All I can say that the casting was just perfect. And I love how they got an actor with the bluest eyes EVER (you know since Belle recognized the Beast when he turned human because of his beautiful blue eyes)
AND HIS SINGING VOICE….OML EVERMORE BECAME MY FAVORITE SONG RIGHT AFTER HEARING IT FOR THE FIRST TIME. IT WAS SO! FREAKING! GOOD! AGH
and there ya go. that was mostly me going Dan Stevens crazy but u gotta admit, for an actor to slay these different roles is just awesome and shows his great talent.
then that moment in
点滅フェロモン MV, which I imagine isn’t gonna be the only one since it’s only the short ver. so god only knows what’s gonna happen to me when I see the full version one like NO. GO AWAY. I DON’T WANT YOU!!! I mean, you need to stop. She needs to stop. This isn’t fair. Not even one bit.
“the voice you hear your thoughts in is your soulmate’s but you don’t know who they are until you hear them speak for the first time”
A/N: Okay, so I felt nice and left out the angst in this one…you all needed the break. BUT, the ending of this…well, you’ll see. Thanks for enjoying this and remember, you can find me on ao3 as ‘dickren’! TWO UPDATES IN TWO DAYS, YIPEE! BTW, Y/N/I means your (first) names initial. [GIF NOT MINE!]
There was a sense of regret itching at your skin, the moment the words ‘stay away from me’ slipped from your mouth, a certain withdrawal was wanted to be placed. You had full control of your tongue, so why did a piece of you want to take it back? The damn bond. You were fuming. You didn’t want to feel sorry, that was the last thing you wanted to feel, but the sudden emotion was pulling at your heartstrings. The memory, the memory was on repeat in the back of your mind, like a film stuck on replay. “As you wish…” The sudden response made your head snap up, your eyes slightly growing wide. Did you hear him right? Or did you want to imagine he said that? Did you want him to really leave you alone?
I literally cannot get over these two. I mean in the first gif they hug each other with one arm over and one arm under, this was when they reunite after some time. But in the second gif Dean pretty much just grabs Sam and hugs him around the neck, just needing to feel his brother alive after Sam being in Purgatory.
So… did I miss something… or do you guys think Pearl might lack the ability to shapeshift?
I mean, the first three gifs (from “Cat Fingers” and “Keep Beach City Weird”) she would have just shapeshifted for Steven’s enjoyment, which is a fine enough motivation. You’d think she’d at least do it when Garnet told her to in Steven Tag.
And in the last two (from “Secret Team”) are in a life-or-death situation. And Pearl “can’t concentrate” and asks Amethyst to do it instead.
Like, has she shapeshifted onscreen and I just forgot? Or is this another way she’s a “lost, defective pearl?”
Can we just appreciate how much Sherlock’s attitude towards Molly has changed since season 1?
in this first gif we see him manipulating her, using her as a means to an end. He feigns affection and it’s only when she turns away that he drops the mask and we see what he’s really thinking.
But in the Empty Hearse, while solving crimes with Molly, as he turns away from her he makes this face.
Molly is no longer a tool to him. Molly is not something to be used. Molly Hooper is his friend and he genuinely enjoys spending time with her.
Imagine Finn when he sees Rae at the fair with Chloe and the gang of old guys
Finn has been dating Olivia for a little while when they go to the fair. Olivia is nice. She is pretty, she is mature, she likes to have fun. The sex is good. Finn likes her. He does. Sure, he doesn’t get the same tingling on his skin or butterflies in his stomach as he did with Rae, but it’s still nice to have someone. They playfully share some cotton candy at the fair, and for a little while, when he’s with her, he can forget about Rae.
He’s not sure anymore that being friends with Rae again was the best idea. He missed her,it’s true. But instead of missing her less now that they are back on friendly terms, he seems to miss her more. And there he goes again, flirting with Olivia while thinking about Rae. Damn. For a moment he thinks that he has even started hallucinating Rae out of the corner of his eye, but it’s actually her. At the fair. With Archie and Chop and Izzy.
Finn has gotten good at hiding at his inner turmoil. Too good perhaps. He greets Archie enthusiastically and chatters away with the gang, noting that Rae has run into Chloe and her group of 23 year olds. What is Chloe doing with 23 year olds anyway, he thinks to himself before remembering that Olivia is 24. And who is that guy chatting up Rae? As if it wasn’t bad enough that she was always hanging around that Liam guy, now she’s gonna start getting hit on by old guys? He sees Rae glance in his direction and is somewhat disturbed with the ease with which he pretends he is having fun.
In spite of everything, he still hopes that Rae will join them. Perhaps he shouldn’t be so eager to have his date interrupted, but he can’t help it. They make eye contact briefly, but she is already leaving. As she walks away, with that guy leering at her, Finn drops the act. What use is it pretending? Why is he even with Olivia? It isn’t fair. Not to him and not to her. He realizes then and there that he needs to break it off. That he needs to get away from Rae. Maybe even leave town. How do you get over someone? How do you move on?
