VILDE WØIEN: Oh my Goood, karaoke is hilarious! Hope you don’t have to have a good singing voice
VILDE: It’ll be super awesome!]
SANA: Did you feel like Sara was trying to hide something from us yesterday?
NOORA: Ehh.. no.. What?
SANA: I don’t know. I just have a bad feeling. If you think about it, those girls can just take the whole bus and throw us out. They’re paying for it.
NOORA: Yeha, but.. Why would they bother joining forces with us if they’re going to throw us out?
SANA: Because they wanted that bus.
NOORA: I don’t think they’re that psycho.
SANA: And didn’t Sara say she’d send me a copy of the contract?
NOORA: Yeah.. I don’t know. Maybe?
SANA: Yeah, she said so. But she hasn’t done it.
NOORA: Yeah.. How did that russ stuff become so important to you?
SANA: I have to ask her about that contract. Sara! Can I talk to you?
GIRL: Ehhh.. Yeah..
SANA: I was just wondering what’s up with the bus contract.
SARA: What do you mean?
SANA: Weren’t you supposed to send me a copy of the contract proposal?
SARA: I did! Didn’t I? I think I did.
SANA: I don’t think you did. Maybe you forgot to. Like how you forgot to add Noora and I to the bus page.
SARA: I think I sent it. Maybe I have the wrong e-mail address? Or that it ended up in the spam filter.
SANA: In the spam filter?
SARA: Because Mari’s copy did.
SANA: Oh. Here it is.
SARA: Good. Mari sent me a message syaing we have to have a contract meeting on Monday and you have to come because you’re the boss so.. Sana, it’s not my intention to boss around so much.. I’m just so used to being the bus boss and then stuff just happens.. But it’s not my intention to overlook you, in any way.
SANA: No, it’s okay.
SARA: But did you see the SYNG event?
SARA: It’d be cool if everybody came.
SANA: Yeah, we’re coming.
SARA: Fun! I feel like we have to fuse the buses a bit more. Get to know each other better.
steven universe would be a million times better with the a:tla story format of showing the viewer the perspective of both the protagonist and the antagonist(s).
could you imagine an episode following peridot when she landed on earth after escaping in jailbreak? what about an episode or two that followed jasper and lapis while they were fused? we would have learned more of what happened there. or hell, even episodes tossed in between the filler beach city eps to show what happened to jasper in between super watermelon island and alone at sea, similar to how star vs did with ludo and showed how ludo rebounded and got back on his feet following defeat. and of course, in between message received and that will be all, what the hell were the diamonds doing? surely blue diamond wasnt only crying about pink diamond. it would have been interesting to see yellow diamond call for the rubies to head to earth to find jasper as well. i could think of more but regardless, i truly think the show would be more interesting if it wasnt only told from stevens perspective.
Honestly I am so upset that all they did with sugilite was make her destructive. Why couldn’t we have some of nicki’s personality, when her actual personality is so much closer to what amethyst/garnet as a fusion should have been?
For example, I would have loved to have seen sugilite be super bubble gum sweet to steven because of how much garnet and amethyst love and care about steven. Why would they possibly hurt him? Why would that make any sense at all, even for the direction that the show was going. the sardonyx arc still could have happened because of nicki’s show persona of just being a super strong iconic woman of color who loves being herself
That whole thing could have been that sugilite doesn’t fuse much because garnet and amethyst love each other so much and feel so much stronger together around pearl that they don’t want to unfuse. They love being sugilite because sugilite is a wonderful fusion to be. It didn’t have to be “they’re too volatile and destructive” when even malachite wasn’t that destructive.
Literally it is absolutely abhorrent that they made sugilite more destructive than malachite when it would have been so easy to have garnet or amethyst say something like “we don’t fuse often because we love our fusion too much, and we are more useful to the crystal gems as individuals” rather than shelf another black coded gem for being too “violent”
Rewatching The Force Awakens the other day got me to thinking about some things. Bear with me. As Skywalker men go, Ben is so much like Anakin. Ben is a few years older than Anakin was before his ‘transformation’, but still. Angry, impatient, brooding, short tempered. Dare I say whiney? Three scenes which contrast his stoic power are when he twice smashes the computer consoles with his lightsaber (when he was told the droid had help escaping and when he returned to the cell to find Rey gone) and when he actually yelled like a petulant child to Snoke that Rey is strong with the Force. We all know how short fused Anakin was during his training and when he became a Jedi Knight. Constantly challenging the counsel, his temper flaring when things didn’t go his way. In that respect, they are very much alike.
As a Reylo shipper, I feel this way: Anakin and Padme’s relationship began in harmony, friendship, and love…yet turned to violence, grief, and a bit of hatred on Anakin’s part (as he mistakenly accused Padme of bringing Obi-Wan to destroy him). Kylo Ren and Rey’s relationship may mirrior that, just flipped around. Beginning in violence and hatred, ending in love. We shall see.
I also noticed something very telling during the lightsaber duel at the end. Yes, Ren flung Rey against that tree. But it was only because she attempted to fire the blaster at him. During their fight, I noticed that he never really swung the blade at her, but mostly at her lightsaber to perhaps knock if out of her grip and disarm her. He, as a Master of the Knights of Ren, could no doubt have taken that girl out with one blow - her newfound powers growing or not. It leads me to believe that he couldn’t harm her, for what is to come in their relationship. The writer’s have a plan. He never even rendered a jab to her, such as her arm, leg, etc. which he could have done for good measure just to weaken her or out of rage. They were in a battle, of course. Yet she jabbed him everywhere. The hip/leg, shoulder, face. The icing on the cake, was when the ice shelf fell away and their sabers locked. Come on. He could have pushed that wisp of a girl over the edge with a finger. A kick to her midsection. A blow of breath! But he didn’t. Not only that, he offered to keep her alive to train her. Sure, it would look good on his Galactic resume; turning a force sensative newbie to the darkside. But common sense tells me he wanted to keep her alive for another reason. Even after that, when she gathered stregth to fight him off, he knew he was in trouble. He should have ended it right there, before she grew even stronger in the force. But he didn’t, and it weakened him to the point of her her victory over him.
I don’t think he will too happy seeing Rey again, at least not initially. Sure, he admired her talent and was in awe of her abilities. But she bested him, and neither his inner self nor his Master will let him forget it. He may even grown to dispise Rey before he (hopefully) learns to love her. Again, we shall see.
I can understand why some fans don’t like a Reylo pairing. We all view Rey as the Heroine, and Ren the Monster. Yet the whole entire franchise was founded on the fall of a man who loved his woman so much he turned to the darkside to protect her. How is that different? As far as I’m concerned, (don’t send pitchforks my way) Kylo Ren had a terrible life. He doesn’t look like he’s had a moment’s peace since he was a child. Someone like Snoke can swoop in and exploit that with no problem. I watched through three original films hating Darth Vader and thinking 'I can’t wait until he gets his’. Yet at the eleventh hour, he redeemed himself and I was so happy! Then upon seeing the prequels I was heartbroken for him. So much manipulation on this good, brave man by the dark side. All he wanted was to love Padme. One side of the force told him that was a sin, and the other told him his love would destroy her. Ben Solo is no exception. Granted, he has a LOT of redeeming to do. When Han fell off that bridge I nearly choked. And it was at the hand of his son. But the fact Han cupped Ben’s cheek, letting him and US know he forgave him, makes me believe that we may be able to forgive him, too.
I really tried to write something during my depression. So I apologize for the shitty end and all mistakes you find in the story. Just enjoy it, please :3
“I bet you can scare Starrick
away with that grim face of yours, brother dearest”, you make your way
towards the door swinging around the screwdriver in your hand amused. Alexander just ignores your comment about his bad mood, while he keeps writing in his little book about a bunch of dots and dashes, which result in a message.
The smile on your lips widens immediately as you see who your visitor is. Of course, you let Henry Green and his two companions in. “Ah, blast'em!”, your brother mumbles under his breath not noticing anyone around him.
you call his name to get his full attention. “I have been intercepting
nothing but poppycock propaganda about Soothing Syrup and what not. No, I
swear to high heavens, if Starrick’s monopoly continues-”, he complains about the current situation.
We have guests”, softly you put a hand on his shoulder to make up the
harsh undertone in your voice. With raised eyebrows he looks at you then
focus his attention at Henry. “I beg your pardon, these are friends of
mine. Evie Frye and her brother, Jacob”, the Assassin can introduce his friends finally.
a bit embarrassed about his rude behaviour Alexander lays away his book
and pen to jump out of his chair. Swiftly he dances around his chair to stand right next to you,
“Um… Alexander Graham Bell.” A slight smile on his lips as he crosses
his hands behind his back, “And this is my lovely sister-”
Bell”, you tell the siblings your name yourself. “Linguists, inventors,
and technical experts”, Henry adds to your names. “Too much praise,
Henry, I’m almost blushing”, you make a dismissive gesture with the hand
which is still holding the screwdriver.
“Aleck, [Y/N], I have something of a favour to ask of you-”, Mr. Green continues to talk. “Can you fix this?”, Jacob takes a few steps closer. Well, the man is definitely not beating around the bushes. The Indian Assassin seems to suppress to roll his eyes, while Evie lives her annoyance with every fibre of her body.
a nice little toy you have there. Nothing easier than that”, but before
you can reach for the rope launcher, Aleck already has his hands on it.
Both of you know he is a bit handicapped due to his injured hand. And still it doesn’t stop him.
“Aleck”, your brother turns around pretending not to hear the warning undertone in your usually with sarcasm laced voice. “Hm… Looks like the casing is cracked”, Alexander looks around for the screwdriver in your hands. “Aleck…” Not caring at all about your protests he grabs a wrench instead. What a stubborn man you have to deal with.
brother gets creative with holding the rope launcher lacking a second
hand to use. “Oh, it comes apart”, this time you are a bit faster than
him taking a hold of the machine as it falls on the table. It wouldn’t take long to get rid of the problems, if you wouldn’t have another technical expert looking over your shoulder.
need to loosen-”, Aleck starts to give tips but you cut him off by
pointing the screwdriver at him, “I swear if you end this sentence, your
left hand won’t be your only injured body part.” He raises his arms in defence smiling, “Go on, sweet sister. I could have used one of these to fit my fuses on top of Big Ben.”
You can feel four pairs
of eyes on you. Especially Aleck’s, who would love to take care of the
launcher himself. But he knows you will make your warning true. “Aleck
and [Y/N] are installing a new telegraph line for our Free Press Association”, Henry explains for what you two need the fuses. “To combat the Starrick Telegraph Company”, your brother adds happily.
“If we can mend the fuses connecting independent lines from Big Ben, Starrick will be weakened”, he loves to talk about your projects, “Only, we are somewhat at a handicap.”
turn around toying a sassy smile on your lips, “We? I only see your
injured hand, brother. Here, I removed the mechanism so it may works
with your bracer. Easier to handle during a fight or whatever you are
doing in your free time.”
You hold out the launcher for one of the twins to grab. “We’ve got a feisty one here. I’ll put it to use immediately”, Jacob won’t let pass a chance like this. He turns around as Evie stops her brother right in time, “Jacob, wait. Mr. Bell, allow me to help you with your fuses.”
Alabaster: See, we have a way that we could genetically fuse three sex cells together, and then one of the two of you would be a surrogate to carry the zygote just like you’d carry any other baby. Three trimesters, the whole shebang. The only decision that you’d have to make is which one of you would carry the baby. But the baby itself will be a third of each of you.
I had a bunch of ideas for how to make this episode better, along with a redesign of Sugilite, so I’ll start out my rewrites with this one, because I feel the episodes before it are fine. I’ll be rewriting a bunch of other Steven Universe episodes, too.
Summary: Based off of angreydj’s separation Au, and some family hcs’ of my own. So basically Capt. U convinced, Krupp to babysit George and Harold for the weekend. Don’t know why, but you know screw logic in fanfics right ?
“Can you remind me again Captain, why I am babysitting those little devils ?”
The glare Mr.Krupp gave Captain Underpants could freeze any student of Jerome Elementary School, although it couldn’t even faze the bubbly man in front of him grinning in front of him.
“Because Benny, they didn’t have anyone to watch them!” That grin was a weapon, and Captain UNderpants knew how to use that against him, “Now splash me with water! I want to be with them all weekend, and we can’t do that if we don’t fuse back right now!
Captain Underpants now had his hands in front of his face both hands clutching together with Krupp’s own and practically vibration off the floor ( He may have to check if Captain had ADHD, but he could deal with that another time.) Krupp sighed he wouldn’t win.
“Alright, just let’s not destroy the house tomorrow and Sunday okay ?” He eyed him as he poured the water in the cup.
“Of course Benny, besides this will be great practice from when we have our own.”
“OUR WHAT ?!” in the panic of flusterness and panic, Krupp splashed Captain Underpants with the water.
In a pink flash Krupp, was once again, alone in the room with only his thoughts of possible children and the impending hell for the next few days.
Saturday, a day which is supposed to be relaxing and peaceful.
Not for Benjamin Krupp, who spent the whole day worrying and fretting for 3:00, the time of reckoning. When the notorious pranksters of his school come into his, his safe zone and place of rest, until Sunday the next day at 12:00. By the end of the day he just knew he was going to regret the whole ordeal.
But yet, even though they were going to be in his house, Krupp couldn’t get over Captain Underpants word from yesterday. Those 4 words shook him down to his very core “When we have our own.”
But yet, time flies and by the time he was done thinking it was 3:00, and he heard his doorbell ring. He got up from his love chair and opened the door. There in front of him were George and Harold, and the corner of his vision he saw a car speeding away.
He them gestured inside and closed the door and immediately snapped his fingers. In a flash of light pink, there standing next to Mr.Krupp was none other Captain Underpants.
Mr.Krupp fidgeted uncomfortably and coughed, “ So, what do you, two wanna do ?”
George spoke up first, as Harold was talking to Captain Underpants. “ We haven’t had dinner yet, we could totally eat something now, and we brought some board games. Right Harold ?”
Harold Still talking to Captain underpants, just absentmindedly said “uh huh” and went back to talking to him. Something about dolphins with lasers? He really didn’t want to know.
Mr.Krupp saw what was happening Harold and Captain Underpants and then looked to George, and sighed “Well George, I don’t think those two are going to tire that conversation anytime soon how about you and me make dinner, and teach you How to make some real food, and not that microwave crap they sell nowadays.”
George gave Mr.Krupp a quizeled look for a second before smiling, “ Yeah okay! What are we going to make ?”
Krupp could only give a sincere smile, “ We’re going to make something,my mom, used to make its, called Tomato Basil Soup. We used to have a lot of leftover chicken, so this dish was fairly common in my childhood home.”
“That sounds so good, Mr.Krupp let’s get cooking!”
George grabs Mr. Krupp by his hand and started dragging him towards the kitchen. Krupp could only laugh at George’s excitement at making a new meal.
“So Harold, my trusty sidekick, how have you been besides , making comics about dolphins with lasers?”
Harold immediately lit up at that question like he was just waiting for somebody asked either it be mr. Krupp or Captain Underpants. “Well Captain Underpants, there’s this boy at Jerome Horwitz Elementary who just transferred from Florida right? And he’s super cute I think, I might even invite him with us to Treehouse some time.”
Captain Underpants chuckled, “ Well Harold, it seems like a very special boy! Do you know his name?”
Harold faltered at that question. “ Well, no. But George is going to help me later at school on Monday so I can get to know him better though. You know George he’s my like 90% if my courage”
They both laughed, that statement. knowing that George being Harold’s courage was the same as Krupp being Captain Underpants courage.
Before they can get another word in their conversation, Mr. Krupp yelled the kitchen saying dinner was ready.
That dinner ,even though Mr. Krupp would never admit it, was one of the best he has had in awhile. The whole dining room is just filled with love and familiarity that this could be something that he could get used to. Maybe Captain Underpants is right that they should adopt a kid or two.
After dinner they ended up playing a game of Monopoly. Unfortunately the game ended all too soon , as tensions were rising between Mr. Krupp and Captain Underpants about who could get the certain Railroad , but fortunately George and Harold had thought of this and brought out a couple of DVDs to watch for later.
For the rest of the night they watched those two DVDs being the Bee Movie, and Frozen by the end of the night both Harold and George fell asleep by the end of Frozen. Captain Underpants and Mr. Krupp both grabbed a boy each and brought them to the guest bedroom ,and laid them down and tucked them in. They both left the room hands intertwines and heading to their own room where they would sleep the rest of the night away peacefully.
Harold tossed and turned in the bed unable to shake the nightmare here just awoken to. It was horrendous Captain Underpants and mr. Krupp wear in the clutches of Professor Poopypants once again, but this time he was not holding back this time he was sure he was going to kill them, the Turbo Toilet 2000 was clutching them and they dropped to the ground lifeless. And that’s when he woke up.
“George, George wake up!” Harold said from across the room in his bed. George still not stirred from sleep Harold got up and shook George awake.
George finally woke up from the rough shaking from Harold. He sat up in bed and rubbed his eyes. Blink the sleep out of his eye.
“Harold ? What are you doing, it’s like three in the morning?”
Harold tugged on George’s arm and dragged him out of bed.
“Dude, just come with me to Krupps and Captain Underpants is room, we need to make sure if they’re okay .I had a bad dream and I don’t think they’re okay and I need you to come with me because I want to be by myself!”
George, now knowing what was going on got up with Harold and went to the bedroom. Is a cracked open the door to see Captain Underpants and Mr. Krupp asleep , both on their backs
But when George looked at Harold he saw he still wasn’t satisfied at just the site. So George grabbed Harold by his arm and dragged into the bed and quietly made the shush face and climbed into bed with them. Harold now getting what was going on crawled into bed with him too. Luckily both adults did not wake up and wrapped their arms around the two boys that, now sleep in the middle of them.
Krupp as usual, was the first to wake up. He noticed there was an extra weight in the bed and on his chest, opening his eyes he saw what the extra weight was. It was George wrapped around his chest basically on top of him sound asleep.
Krupp deciding not to question it, gently lifted George off of him and onto Captain Underpants who currently had Harold wrapped around him the same way George was to him. He then went in the kitchen to make some breakfast.
“So! What did you think of the two little boys decided to crawl in our bed last night?” Captain Underpants as he wrapped his arms around Mr. Krupp who is scrambling some eggs for the last breakfast.
“It was definitely a surprise, I didn’t think they’d actually trust us enough to do that. But you’re right this was some good practice and I thought it over and maybe we could go do some research on adopting later.”
Captain, now with a glint in his eyes and a huge smile on his face went down the hall to go wake up the boys. The boys came in with a blush on their face thinking over what they did last night, but to their surprise Captain Underpants nor Mr. Krupp had brought it up.
The rest of the day went normal until 12 when their parents had to come pick them up.Though Krupp did get surprised when George and Harold both of their arms around Mr. Krupp and flashed a smile to the window where Captain Underpants was. They ran into their car waving the whole way down the road until they turned the corner.
While standing on the lawn Mr. Krupp only had one thought on his mind. “I think I wouldn’t mind having kids around the house.”
If you’ve seen more than one non-musical Les Mis movie in English (whether it’s American OR British), you might have noticed that sometimes they’re eerily similar to each other. I’m talking about the 1935, 1952, 1978 and 1998 movies, as seen above.
I honestly think these are all at least somewhat based on each other. They all follow the same rough structure, they share suspiciously specific details… it’s not really hard to make the connections. So I figured I’d try to put that structure into words.
Disclaimer: I’m not necessarily saying these are all bad things. (Although most of them are.) They’re just shared features and I get that plot needs to be streamlined when you adapt a giant novel into a movie. But it’s amusing to make fun of them. Also I only included the ones that show up in at least three of the movies.
1: This is the story of Jean Valjean and Inspector Javert, everybody else is mostly just there to drive the plot forward.
2: Prison porn, lots of prison pornOkay okay not literal porn but you know what I mean. (exception: ‘98)
3: Fantine? Who’s that? Oh right Cosette’s mom. I guess we should give her a couple of scenes then… (exception: in ‘98 Fantine gets an actual story arc.)
4: We should really linger on this Montreuil-sur-Mer part of the plot, that’s the good stuff (but we can’t call the town “Montreuil-sur-Mer”, that would be ridiculous.)
5: The Thénardiers can only appear once, when Valjean goes to pick up Cosette, or not at all. Who needs all those plot points later on, this story is about the EPIC CHASE between Valjean and Javert!
6: You can have either Gavroche or adult Éponine but never both and they’re not related to the Thénardiers because we’re done with the Thénardiers already, didn’t I just tell you? Child Éponine may be allowed with the Thénardiers but she’s never named and has no lines.
7: Wow, Hugo really went off the plot rails after they arrive in Paris, didn’t he? There’s barely anything about Javert hunting Valjean in here! Let’s fix that and remove all this irrelevant stuff about all these side characters. We’ll just keep the love story because you gotta have a love story
8: I guess the revolution thing is kind of cool as a set piece for Valjean and Javert’s DRAMATIC REUNION. But we don’t really need to explain the politics and ideology and the fighting and all the minor character stuff, all that has nothing to do with Valjean and Javert!
9: Oh wait I guess we should still kill off whichever not!Thénardier kid we decided to include, though, for Dramatic Effect and to show how Tragic and Horrible revolutions are. (Exception: in ‘52 Gavroche doesn’t die)
10: Obviously Javert should go to the barricades to find Valjean, that’s much more important to him than “spying on the revolutionaries” lol (exception: '78)
11: Sewer chase scene! Yes, finally we’re back to the REAL story of Les Mis! Javert chasing Valjean in the sewers!
12: Well, Javert is dead so I guess we’re done now. VALJEAN WON! WHOO! HAPPY ENDING!
