anonymous asked:

I was meh about it too and watched it like a month later after everyone else and I was surprised like it's good but it's overhyped imo

im also such a stubborn ass like the more ppl tell me to watch something, the more im like ‘uh never gonna do that sry’

like i’ve put off imagine me and you FOR YEARS. im gonna go my whole gay life without watching that movie bc everybody just keeps telling me to watch it.

This is you. Eyes closed, out in the rain. You never thought you’d be doing something like this, you never saw yourself as, I don’t know how you’d describe it… like one of those people who like looking up at the moon, who spend hours gazing at the waves or the sunset or… I guess you know the kind of people I’m talking about. Maybe you don’t. Anyway, you kind of like being like this, fighting the cold, feeling the water seep through your shirt and getting through your skin. And the feel of the ground growing soft beneath your feet. And the smell. And the sound of the rain hitting the leaves. All the things they talked about in the books you haven’t read. This is you, who would have guessed it? You.

“And I won’t ever let you go… Wait for me to come home.” [x]

I don’t think he’s gonna let you out of his sight for another 70 years, Buck, but that’s okay, because this happens in cap 3 and i will be crying myself into a coma along with Steve [x]

Stiles goes camping with his friends in New Mexico after graduation where they befriend a biker gang led by Derek: a guy whom Stiles can’t decide if he will be either relieved or devastated to never see again once their week is up.

“You better hold on,” Derek advises. He turns his head slightly to the side, glancing at him over his shoulder. “I don’t want to get in trouble if you get hurt.”

“Good idea,” Stiles agrees, having to raise his voice in order to be heard over the loud engine. “My dad might press charges. Did I mention he’s the sheriff back home?”

“Maybe we should call this off.”

“No way!”

A note to screenwriters of today: the only way to create stories that make us grow, think, feel and dream is to avoid the patriarchal iconography prototypes used to seduce producers. It’s not an easy ride; you have to be prepared to face all kinds of comments. I will never forget what a very well-known, Oscar-winning producer told me when I presented him the script for My Life Without Me: “Why do you want to tell the story of a poor, badly dressed woman who has just months to live?”. My answer was simple: “Well, someone has to”
