“Honey, I had the racist hotdog dream again. He was cussing and setting a horrible example for Flurryheart and we just…we couldn’t ind another foalsitter. So he had to foalsit for us. And at the end of the dream she was saying awful things about earth ponies and pegasi. And you should have heard her language!”

What do you think yatesbert movie nights are like? What are their favorites from high school? Anything they fell in love with separately during the gap years that they realize the other one thought of them during? What do they love now? Any movie night rules (like Gilmore Girls)? What do they invite Holtz and Patty to watch with them? Anything they MUST watch alone?

So all of the Busters seem to be way less picky on movies than I am. I’m imagining they all rented a lot of movies on nights they were on their own :( [except Holtz who largely watched 80s movies that either aired on TV or she picked up on VHS from a thrift store for like a quarter.] There’s a lot of give-me’s that I didn’t mention below. Abby and Erin at the very least (though it’s likely all of them) are Patrick Swayze fans. All the true 80s staples that are still enjoyed by the public today (i.e. Back to the Future; Beverly Hills Cop) make common appearances in movie nights. This list are just the movies I had Thoughts on.

  • Gremlins distracted middle school Abby for a good long time as she tried to work out how the water did the thing and if this corresponded to any known mythology of paranormal creatures she’d been studying. It distracted her and Erin both for another week when they watched it together years later.
  • Labyrinth was quite popular with them, especially Erin. (In retrospect, she had a big crush on the girl.) (Abby totally seconded this crush, but since she was aware of it (her own crush, not Erin’s), she wasn’t quite as obsessively drawn to the movie as Erin. But it did mean she never complained when Erin suggested watching it again.)
  • Indiana Jones, whenever it’s on TV, turns into a full-fledged marathon as someone inevitably pulls out their DVDs after the TV airing ends. Happens every time.
  • No one officially picks Apollo 13 for movie nights, and yet somehow they watch it ~ 10 times a year. It must be because it’s on TV all the time, and it’s difficult to turn the channel once you catch a glimpse.
  • The Sixth Sense was released in 1999 which would have been about 2 years after Erin left Abby. Abby definitely watched the hell out of it (even though everyone can see a ghost if it’s in the room, guys, duh).  I can’t decide if Erin avoided it at all costs or if she secretly rented it and watched it because she kept being drawn back to it. She possibly did both, and then had a minor life crisis as she tried to figure out if she was the kid seeing dead people or not before finally shoving the whole thing deep into the basement recesses of her mind.
  • Erin’s far less bothered by it when it pops up during a team movie night years later. For one thing, she now has hard evidence that ghosts are real and everyone can see them. For another, it turns out that Holtzmann has not only never seen The Sixth Sense, but she has also remained completely unspoiled on the twist. (some combination of her 80s fixation and living in her own personal bubble has kept her in the dark.) So, everyone spends less time watching the movie and more time watching her for her reactions. She doesn’t disappoint :P
  • Toy Story was released during Abby and Erin’s junior year of college, so in theory, they were too old for it, but… have you met college students??? Also the premise of toys talking and carrying on entire lives behind your back is too universal. Every kid wondered at some point if their toys could talk. (This movie may have also prompted several new rounds of spectral possession discussions because Abby and Erin are fucking NERDS who won’t stop relating everything back to their book.) (like seriously, just take fandom attitudes and apply it to their research. That’s them in a nutshell.)
  • (One night the team decides to tap into their inner child and marathon all three of the Toy Story movies and it quickly becomes a MISTAKE. There are tears during Jessie’s song, and by the time Andy lovingly gives his toys to that little girl, they’re all bawling. It’s Awful. Worst decision of their lives. Honestly, never again.)

EW: There’s a hilarious scene in the film where [Chris Hemsworth’s] interviewing to be your assistant, and it becomes clear that his character is, uh, not very smart.
McCarthy: When we were doing that interview scene, Chris had such a crazy run of improv, it was mind-blowing.
Wiig: It was so specific and kind of odd, which is the best kind of improv. We couldn’t understand where he came up with that.
McCarthy: That scene was so hard to get through.
Wiig: I know. That’s when Kate farted.🚫

two girls, one bed.
we are five and i show you my new doll and you smile and say it’s pretty and the sunlight hits your face making you look like an angel so when you ask me to play with the doll i don’t even complain and tell you you can keep it. you laugh and hug me and i feel happy.

two girls, one bed.
we are eleven and doing our homework when you ask me whether i like any boys from our school. the question makes me nervous and anxious and my stomach feels weird but i push it down and just shrug it off. you tell me about david and how you two hung out at the library and how he kissed your cheek and you called him from your mom’s phone and talked for two hours. i don’t know david and i don’t think i even want to. one week later i see you two holding hands in english class and i feel angry.

two girls, one bed.
we are sixteen and listening to some music and you sing along when your phone starts ringing and you ask me to turn the music down. it’s your boyfriend and you laugh at everything he says and promise to meet him tonight at the park. you hang up with an ‘i love you’ and i leave the room to get some water though i’m not thirsty and my hands are shaking and i can’t drink without spilling it. later that night i sneak you into my room and you smell like smoke and beer and you tell me about how good it feels to kiss someone. your words leave a bitter taste in my mouth and when you fall asleep i kiss your shoulder and feel guilty.

two girls, one bed.
we are twenty and you are crying because yet another boy broke your heart and i try to tell you that it’s not you, that you are amazing and beautiful and kind and that not a single one of them deserves you and i’m crying too. we fall asleep in each other’s arms and my dreams are soft and quiet, filled with fairy lights and roller coasters. when i wake up you are looking at me and something feels different and when you kiss me i understand and i feel happy again.

i wasnt kidding about pushing daisies AU

summary for ppl unfamiliar with pushing daisies: dirk is a man born with the ability to wake the dead through touching them. when he touches the dead they come back to life, but if he touches them again, they return to being dead, but this time forever. he grows up distant from people, fearing social connections because of his powers. 

he eventually grows to become the piemaker, with waitress roxy, who desperately wishes to become closer to someone as impenetrable as dirk, and jane crocker, private eye who knows that solving mysteries is easier when your business partner can wake the dead and ask them who killed them.

one day, dirk finds out that jake english, childhood sweet heart, was murdered while travelling, and revives him. they fall in love as they reconnect, despite the fact that they can never touch or else jake would return to being dead, forever. they do tooth rottingly cute things like kiss through saran wrap, hold hands with gloves and dance while wearing bee keeping suits

it’s a really great show, if i could write i would do more w this AU
