a line of the movie really

Finally found the movie, so here are some quick favorites from the movie, and I’m at this moment collection quotes, so new post coming very soon! 

♥ Song: I really love Chillin’ Like a Villain, both the song and the performance
♥ Character: So I really love the Lonnie story line in this, and yes I guessed it was gonna happen the second they said “one captain and 8 men” (it was 8 right), so it came as no surprise, but it was a nice story to give her.
♥ Scene: The girl talk. I also loved that Jay sat down again; I saw it as a little hit to the fact in the book they were a team before the others joined, and I just really liked that.
♥ Ending: I loved that it wasn’t just the same as the first, love that Uma didn’t just choose good, the movie gives her the change the Core 4 got, but she didn’t just take it, and I love it.
♥ Other: I really thought from the trailers and the pictures I have seen by accident that the movie was pretty much spoiled but I was happily surprised that that was still some things was this surprising.
♥ Overall: Great movie, a very good follow up to the first one, there is some kind of cheesy things; but that was exactly what I expected from the movie cause it’s still a dcom, so I have absolutely no problem with that.

Thoughts on the new Justice League trailer?

Some great moments (Flash touching the window as he’s presumably discovering his powers is fucking art), but for some reason it’s still not coming into something that’s really grabbing me. To be fair, Wonder Woman was the first DCEU movie that had uniformly mediocre trailers and it’s the best of them by several country miles, so maybe this is somehow a good sign? At least I really like all the leads at this point (except Ray Fisher, who may surprise me in the movie but for the moment seems to be absolutely sleepwalking through his lines). I do wonder though what much better Superman film the writer of this movie apparently saw before having Batman talk how great everybody thought he was in this, as if the fact he was overtly a figure of pants-shitting global terror in the public eye wasn’t the entire plot of BvS.

why is zendaya on the movie poster for spider-man homecoming and not laura harrier the actual love interest of the movie dhsjdjdhd i love zendaya but she didn’t really contribution to the film she only said a few one liners meanwhile no one gives credit or appreciates laura or her role as the intelligent and driven sweet crush who plays a big part in the whole movie and has an actually story line?!?

Anyone wanna talk about Descendants?

Okay, descendants 2 was a freakin emotion roller-coaster for me. I bounced from laughing to crying so hard. I honestly paid almost no attention to Ben and Mal. This movie was amazing with its Evie plot line and Jay and Carlos really changed for the better. I need to talk to someone DAMN

I have come to the conclusion, Eliza is pretty much done with the show. Every time you see her, she is practically begging for forgiveness for the shitty story line and the direction the show is going. I think when her contract is up, she will walk away. The movie Thumper was probably her way of testing the waters. Am I crazy or do others think this too? @simplymeinanutshell

You know I heard others talking about this very same thing actually. I didn’t really get a chance yet to really watch her interviews/reactions yet to see what so many were talking about. I certainly wouldn’t blame her any. Gawd can you imagine having Jason for a boss, I mean talk about flipping nightmare. I know if I were her I would want the hell out of her contract too. I’m sure she isn’t the only one I bet Lindsey, Marie and others feel the same way. I believed Ricky and what he said about what it was like working for the douchebag Jason. So Eliza deserves the moon as far as her next upcoming projects as she has always been such an angel. I just want her to be happy and successful as she deserves just that.

Her Hidden Child a BBRae Tale

What is holding Beast Boy back from finally being happy?

Chapter 10: Trust

One week later

“… and then last night they watched one of those Disney movies together till she fell asleep. It was quite adorable.” Wow Raven really was acting like a school girl. Phone in hand and boy on the other line.

“Wow,” said James, “sounds like they get along well.”

“They do.” She sighed. She didn’t know why she was putting off telling Farah that Beast Boy was her father, it’s not like they didn’t have a great relationship already, Raven for some reason couldn’t bring herself to do it.

“So when will I see you guys again?” James had been asking to see the two for some time, and although Raven did want to see him, she didn’t want to see him as Raven. She could already tell that James’s opinion was altered slightly learning Farah had powers, and Raven wasn’t ready to give up her only connection to normalcy, even if the longer she stayed with her old team, the more she lost the desire for normalcy.

“I’m not sure honestly,” she said solemnly, “We’ll have to see.”

“Ah … ok.” The conversation lasted just a bit longer before a knock at her door told Raven it was time to go, but she could tell James was disappointed. Of course he always was whenever they had to hang up, she could tell he really miss her and Farah, powers and none. She hung up her cell phone and opened the door for Beast Boy, Farah bouncing excitedly at his feet.

Farah had finally started learning to control her powers and she was learning fast, finally something she got from Raven. Twice a week she would train with Beast Boy, take a bath, then bed. Luckily training took a lot out of her so she was ready for bed as soon as she was done with her bath.

“Mommy I turned into a puppy!” the little girl yelled.

Beast Boy flinched at his daughters yelling as she was getting into that “voice is always loud” stage. “Great,” Raven said rubbing her ears, “now go get ready for bathtime.” Farah scampered into the room, with her mother shaking her head. She tilted her head to look at Beast Boy, taking notice of the very FAKE smile on his face. It caught her off guard for a moment, but she shook it off. “How is she doing?”

Beast Boy, who had been looking at the ground this whole time with his shoulders slumped, only just now lifted his eyes to meet Raven’s gaze. “Oh she’s doing great, but she hasn’t been able to change into anything larger then a dog.” Even the tone of his voice seemed like forced joviality.

“Well that’s good.” she smirked trying to ease whatever unease he was feeling, “Last thing I want is for Farah to be stomping down main street as a T-Rex.”

Beast Boy gave a small laugh, his eyes drifting to the ground again. “Yeah, uh, yeah.”

Raven could feel the depressive emotions wafting off of him making her head pound. “Beast Boy, is everything ok?”

He looked back up at her, “Oh yeah, yeah. I’m, uh, gonna, I’m gonna go turn in.”

Raven glanced at the clock. “But it’s only six thirty.”

Beast Boy shrugged. “Yeah, but I’m tired, so I’ll, uh talk to ya later.” Once again he gave a fake smile and walked off to his own room, but no matter how far away he walked, she still felt his depression and slight guilt.

Farah grabbed her towel and jammie’s and ran for the door, dropping her bath toys in the process. “Shit!” She yelled.

I am going to KILL that dragon.

I just got back from Dunkirk and if you haven’t seen it YET you have to.

Most people on here has been saying Harry got a smaller role and that he doesn’t talk as much and comes in later in the movie BUT to be honest he really does have the majority of the talking in terms of longer scenes and longer lines (not just a three word sentence here and there) and to me it almost seemed like him and Fionn we’re equal in terms of talking. It does center more around Fionn (amongst the land crew) but I felt like they had similar amount of spoken dialogue.

I didn’t see it in IMAX but I did feel the intensity of the movie. The sound mixing is amazing. I hate loud noises but the bomb effects didn’t get to me as much as the shooting effects. It does get loud but I could survive it. The visuals are obviously amazing and I love the color scheme of a dull blue/grey/green theme and it really does set the mood. The cutting is fast pace, the intercutting is amazing and the lack of dialogue doesn’t bring the movie down, the sound and visuals make up for the lack of dialogue and the little dialogue that IS spoken drives the story forward.

Since this was a movie where you could sort of figure out the end beforehand (if you like history or paid attention to the promo) I thought I would be bored after a while but it definitely keeps your attention.

I thought Harry’s acting was really good and convincing and I’m not just saying that as a Harrie but in terms of character development and convey emotions, he really did his character justice because his dialogue contradicts his visuals. When he speaks he’s a dick but when there are silent scenes with him you can see he’s just as terrified as everyone else so HONESTLY he is a good actor and he did do the movie and the character justice and I would see this movie again even if I wasn’t a Harrie stan.

The only disappointing thing in my opinion is that it wasn’t as “Nolan” as I’d expected it to be. Sure time is skewed and the intercutting is classic Nolan BUT I expected more of a mindfuck and more of a twist, maybe I’m just SUCH an inception fan.

(SPOILERS! sort of? just being careful.)

I had to draw this out - it is undoubtedly one of my most favorite scenes out of the movie. I was so impressed by Chris Pine during this moment because his acting was so convincing. I liked his take on Steve Trevor throughout but he really clicked as a character for me here. I thought these lines were beautifully written, and his delivery was so perfect that it really stuck with me while I was leaving the theater. I feel like this moment alone is a beautiful example of their relationship.

Diagnostic criteria for autism are always so badly written.

Like, the trains thing.

I’m going to keep coming back to the trains thing because it baffles me.

So, the example used for special interests in a lot of diagnostic criteria is trains.

“Has an unusually strong interest in something - for example, trains”

And, like, sure. Okay. Special interests can be anything. Trains are a possibility.

But, like, special interests don’t appear out of nowhere. You generally have to be exposed to something first to get a special interest in it.

So, like, I know a lot of autistic people, and I know no one with a special interest in trains.

You know what the most common special interest is, in my experience?

Star Wars.

Yeah, go fucking figure, the ubiquitous movie franchise that almost everyone has seen at least one movie of is the most common special interest, in my experience.

Now, I do kind of understand the trains thing. The line between special interest and regular interest isn’t always super obvious.

Like, collecting Star Wars toys, or writing Star Wars fanfic, or marathoning the movies a bunch of times doesn’t necessarily make it a special interest.

And since it’s socially acceptable (especially in modern day nerd culture) to do all of those things, it’s not a glaring indicator of autism to outsiders.

If someone’s really into something obscure - like trains - however, it can make the fact that it’s a special interest super obvious.

But it’s still bad to have it be the go-to special interest example because it’s just not that common.

Plenty of autistic people don’t have obscure special interests. Their SIs are in the Marvel movies or Star Wars or Star Trek or Five Nights at Freddy’s.

Hell, part of the problem with women and girls not getting diagnosed is because no one notices their special interests in, like, makeup or boy bands.

When you use “trains” as the example, you’re sending the implicit message that special interests have to be obscure and out of the social norm, and that’s just not the case for most people - especially now that a lot of geek culture has gone mainstream and there’s a huge nostalgia cash-in.

Having a special interest in Power Rangers was weird for me when I was 14. It’s not now that it’s a big blockbuster movie and most people exposed to the internet review-sphere are at least aware of Linkara’s History of Power Rangers.

Special interests don’t have to be outside the social norm to be special interests. It’s how the autistic person feels about them and engages with them that defines it.

Things I really loved about Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 in earnest

Spoilers!!!!!

1. Yondu’s “I’m Mary Poppins y'all!” after Peter says he’s cool. Because yes, it’s a hilarious line, but it’s also such a DAD thing. Like, who can’t say that their dad wouldn’t be so proud to be considered cool by their son and it’s so unexpectedly sweet because of it.

2. The fact that Baby Groot cries like an actual baby once. Because it’s like it’s stabbing you in the heart, but it’s so effective because you really forget that he really is a baby with all the things he can do until then, and that brings you right back.

3. The symmetry in Yondu’s redemption. Yondu is damned because he brings Ego’s children to Ego and his planet to be sacrificed, and he’s redeemed by sacrificing himself to save Ego’s child (who really is HIS child) and bring him away from Ego’s planet.

4. Drax’s interaction with Mantis, especially him holding her while he drowns in Ego’s planet. Because Drax is like this big murderous comic relief character, but his screen time with Mantis was this lovely way to remind the audience that Drax has this soft side and this tragic past without shoving it in your face. Drax might laugh at your pain, but he’d also try to save you even as he was drowning, and it’s a perfect way to frame his character.

5. Ego’s “For the first time, I am truly not ALONE!” and his alieness in general. Because don’t get me wrong, Ego is absolutely a non redeemable wonky bonkers genocidal jerk off, but he’s got this great alien quality to him that I feel this series really needed. It’s not in how he looks, but his motives and how he acts. Ego is a millennia old being; a god in a world of mortals. His view point of the world and his actions are so very true to that idea that we almost can’t relate because no one can imagine what it must be like to be that old or that powerful. But when he yells that one line out, we really get it. Ego, for all his power, is just like us; he just doesn’t want to be alone. Coupled with his god like alien superiority, his ego - get it? ;) - he sees the expansion as the way to answer that feeling. If everything is him, after all, then he can’t be alone, see? What makes him a great villain is that he actually had the real answer all along - love, family - but he chose to destroy it because he felt it was beneath him; because of his subconscious disgust at his own desire to be “just like the rest of them.”

6. Nebula’s “You wanted to win and I just wanted a sister!” And how it turns the tables on how we view her relationship with Gamora. Because Nebula is clearly set up to be the ‘bad sister’ to Gamora’s ‘good sister’ and that one line really throws that on its head and shows that neither one of them are good or bad. I also love how it’s Gamora that ends up apologizing to Nebula, after everything, and Gamora who finally returns Nebula’s offer of sisterhood after all of those years.

7. “You shouldn’t have killed my mom and squished my Walkman!” Like, this line right here; the essence of Peter Quill in 10 words. Perfection.

8. The batteries as they relate to the parallel of Yondu’s and Rocket. Because them as a parallel is basically smashed over our heads, but I liked the subtle batteries parallel in that Rocket steals batteries he doesn’t need and Yondu steals Peter, who is used as a battery by Ego. It’s just a little thing but I found it really neat.

9. Rocket’s “I can only afford to lose one friend today,” line and how although it’s clearly framed to be about Peter, it’s also possibly about Yondu. Because no matter what, Rocket is losing a friend and it’s a great line to add to his character development from a guy who started trying to push his friends away to a guy who can’t lose them.

10. The contrast between how Peter reacts to the death of Ego and Yondu. He holds both as they die but he’s just silent and unaffected by Ego and he’s distraught and trying desperately to save Yondu, trying to pull off the suit to give to Yondu and save him instead. Can you say tears?

11. Don’t even talk to me about the Ravager funeral.

12. That the movie really was truly about family. Drax and his family and Mantis, Gamora and Nebula, Rocket and the Guardians, everyone parenting Groot and Peter realizing that the dad he’d wanted all along was actually the one he’d had. Often these superhero movies pull the “we’re family” card and it doesn’t feel earned, but man it does in this one. This movie is like Marvel’s “The Fast and The Furious IN SPACE” and it’s just great.

Another yelling dialogue test from ‘Kubo’. This time we had an actual line from the film, delivered by Voldemort. Moonbeast was a challenge ‘cause he’s all up in your face so his mouth had to move really well, yet it was made of rigid plates. What he was so mad about I still don’t know. I think I need therapy.

“We don’t call him Man-Ape,” executive producer Nate Moore told EW during our set visit. “We do call him M’Baku.”

The problem was self-evident. “Having a black character dress up as an ape, I think there’s a lot of racial implications that don’t sit well, if done wrong,” said Moore. “But the idea that they worship the gorilla gods is interesting because it’s a movie about the Black Panther who, himself, is a sort of deity in his own right.”

Director Ryan Coogler and his co-writer Joe Robert Cole (American Crime Story) borrowed some inspiration for the character from Marvel scribe Christopher Priest, who had an acclaimed 1998-2003 run on the Black Panther series.

“You learn that M’Baku is essentially the head of the religious minority in Wakanda and we thought that was interesting,” Moore said. “Wakanda is not a monolithic place. They have a lot of different factions.”

In Priest’s story line, M’Baku was enraged that his White Gorilla cult was outlawed, leading to a clash with the Panther. The character’s exact role in the film is still being kept under wraps, but the filmmakers confirm that M’Baku and his Jabari tribe are, once again, not happy with the young, new ruler (played by Chadwick Boseman).

“A lot of the writers who did some of the most interesting work around the character, they treated Wakanda like a truly African country,” Coogler said. “When you go to countries in Africa, you’ll find several tribes, who speak their own languages, have their own culture, and have distinct food and way of dress. They live amongst each other, and together they make the identity of those countries. That’s something we tried to capture. We wanted it to feel like a country, as opposed to just one city or town.”

M’Baku has a grievance with T’Challa, but he and his followers were equally unsettled by the previous king, T’Challa’s father T’Chaka — who was assassinated in Captain America: Civil War after trying to engage with the world beyond the closed-off, technological paradise of Wakanda.

“In M’Baku’s worldview, T’Chaka made a huge mistake going to the U.N.,” Moore says. “‘We should never engage with the outside world. That’s a terrible mistake. And if his son is anything like his father, I don’t support him being on the throne.‘”

 “Man-Ape is a problematic character for a lot of reasons, but the idea behind Man-Ape we thought was really fascinating. … It’s a line I think we’re walking, and hopefully walking successfully.”

“In this movie, it’s a little tricky to define who’s a [good guy],” Coogler says. “The film very much plays with those concepts, looking at conflicts and different motivations, and who’s with who. M’Baku is a really interesting character, and I’m excited for people to get to see him.”

on the new Iron Fist series

So after binge watching a ton of Marvel’s new Iron Fist series, I went onto tumblr, wondering what the fandom was up to now, what with all these new gifs and stuff to make. ‘Maybe I would find some fan art or something’ I thought innocently to myself,

BUT BOY WAS I WRONG

instead, I was greeted with SO MUCH DISCOURSE on how Iron Fist ‘needs a chinese-american actor’ or ‘has terrible dialogue and is slow’.

the best part is when I found out that some of y’all are trying to get this show boycotted like ‘????’

Now as a Chinese-speaking Asian female, living in Asia, with an Asian background and a good know-how of Chinese history, as well as a decent knowledge of comic books, (although I confess I got into the animated series first) I’m here to end the discussion before y’all get your full rage on and start fighting fans of the show like it’s Lord of the Flies up in here

So keep reading if you want to be educated or if you just want to fight me before you know what you’re even talking about

“THE SHOW INSULTS CHINESE CULTURE”

Uhhhh…no? I’ve seen a few episodes and I mean so far there isn’t really anything that screams ‘insult’ or even offensive in the slightest. Besides maybe the fact that they take the beliefs and twist them a little bit but honestly even that ain’t that bad as to what I’ve seen elsewhere.

I’ve read the boycott post and let me say that yea, they dressed him with an eye for Asian elements, but maybe that’s because it’s supposed to be resembling Asian clothing? I mean how is that offensive? Is it the part that it looks Asian? Or that you simply feel that white people that direct these shows should not be using Asian stuff for entertainment? Because I hate to break it to you but it’s still not offensive. Even the dragon tattoo is totally fine because it’s supposed to resemble Asian elements yea but also have y’all read the comics? Because he punched through a dragon and basically took it’s heart. So I mean a dragon tattoo kinda matches the theme.

I mean in the first episode they speak almost flawless Chinese for Pete’s sake! Hell, I was surprised that they even had it in them to have a non-Google translated line. Sure the accent was a little overdoing it cuz not even I have that thick a Chinese accent but I’ll excuse it since he was apparently learning and speaking 15 years. (I speak it maybe a few times a day for like the last 14 years or so only)

So no, the show doesn’t really insult Chinese culture, sure they might be ignorant, but you must understand that after generations of stereotypes and misconceptions that that can’t just go away with one show

“Danny Rand should be played by an Asian guy/be a Chinese-American”

I can’t even begin to tell you my frustration about this.

Y’all do know this show is based on the comics right?

You know, the one with the white guy.

I know Marvel is infamous for not including enough representation in their shows but seriously? This is like the Harry Potter thing all over again with Hermione being black, it’s not that we don’t want representation or anything, but it’s the fact that this hero that us comic fans have come to already love has been replaced. Or at least it feels like it. Like when a movie is made from a book and people go crazy because character XYZ suddenly has different traits or isn’t quite what was described as compared to the book.

Frankly, it sucks.

So even though yes, Marvel should have more Asians in their shows, don’t expect them to completely give the main character a makeover, even if the makeover was supposed to provide representation. And honestly? I don’t want them to change him because I really freaking love Iron Fist, just as he is.

“This show just villainizes Asians”

So you tell me that my race is being made villains because Marvel decided that most of their Asians on their shows are evil ninjas (aka the Hand) and at most there are like 3 sorta good Asians. Oh and I’m sorry, you want more Asian men that are good guys? You want a balance of Asian heroes?

Well I guess that would be kind of hard to fit into the story since, oh, I don’t know, everything happens in the USA?

If you want more Asian characters well then look no further because you do have them. Daisy Johnson from Agents of Shield? What about her extremely brave mom? Or maybe Colleen in Iron Fist? Everyone seems to be blatantly ignoring her badassery and only seeing the part where she’s a sorta love interest.

Facts are, there are Asian characters, you’re really just looking hard enough. I agree wholeheartedly when you say that more Asian men need to be in the Marvel universe that aren’t part of the bad guy team but you gotta say that they are still awesome.

Does anyone even remember the Japanese ninja yakuza guy from Daredevil? Dude got set on fire and STILL came back to kick ass. That’s a plus in my book because even though he’s considered bad, he’s been proven to be cunning, smart, and overall awesome.

“The show has terrible stunts/acting/dialogue/fight scenes”

From here on out it’s mostly just me trying to explain why the directors and writers of the show made decisions in the show to make it what it is, so let’s dive right into it.

  • STUNTS

Actually the stunts weren’t half-bad. If you’ve seen other shows or movies that are heavily reliant on stunts and action, and compare it to this show, they really aren’t that much different. Sure it might seem a little unbelievable sometimes like they’re breaking physics or something, but he already has a glowing fist. I think we’ve crossed the line of believable long ago.

  • ACTING

I have nothing to say about this except that go and take some acting or drama classes before coming and criticizing these awesome men and women who did indeed try their best

  • DIALOGUE

Now I get the dialogue might be a little weird at times and what not, but you must understand that this show was partially written with the Defenders series in mind. So almost everything that was said in the show is meant to lead to something more. Thus, you must take it as a bigger picture. Sorta like how everyone said that Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them wasn’t as good as they thought it would be, that movie was also meant to lead on to a bigger story so you might want to excuse the weird speech and cryptic lines at times.

  • FIGHT SCENES & ACTION

Okay seriously people, please read the comics. Danny Rand is supposed to be an accidental hero, one that doesn’t want to fight unless he really has zero choice in the matter. So yea, the fight scenes won’t be that interesting, but only because the character in question is more interested in ending the fight than anything.

~

So there you have it, my whole slightly angry info-dump on Iron Fist and Marvel’s representation problem in general. If you want to correct me or scold me even then by all means message me or shoot me an ask. But just keep in mind that Marvel can’t make all your problems go away in one show, and please for the love of all that is good read the comics before coming to rant okay?

bad | 07

  He was the cliché bad boy. He was the guy you couldn’t stand. He was the handsome, hot kid who made girls go weak in the knees. He was a brat. You had never liked him one bit, but you had also never gotten involved with anything concerning him. Until one day, when you were in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

I don’t think I’ll write a review of this movie (I might eventually) so here’s just a brief list of the things I really appreciated in the new Beauty and The Beast (2017):

  • They allowed Belle to straight-up reject Gaston. They didn’t write her lines or her delivery as coquettish and overly polite. Belle gets to pretty much say, Gaston, I am not interested in you and you need to accept that. They did not portray this as her being shy or hard to get. Her rejection towards him was confident and clear.
  • Kevin Kline was an immaculate choice for Maurice (Belle’s father). He infused even his first appearance with such sincere emotion. Watson and Kline had a remarkably believable, familial chemistry on screen.
  • The costuming was much better than I expected. It had a surprisingly authentic spin on the original cartoonish costumes. They clearly studied the fashion of 1600′s France and attempted to stick closely to its style for this and it worked out very well!
  • The supporting cast forces white people to be reminded that Black People Are Not Some Kind of Recent Invention. People of colour lived throughout Europe in the 1600s. There are interracial couples and characters of colour at the forefront who weren’t used for stereotypical ends. The librarian that Belle visits at the very beginning was a black man and that was sort of the starting point for me where I was like, they took historical accuracy in more than just the costumes and they didn’t whitewash for the sake of/with the excuse of “it’s fantasy”/”its europe”/”it’s the victorian era”
  • They make a joke about a main character being illiterate in a way that isn’t rude, was actually funny, and again a historical nod to the fact that many would have been illiterate in that time period.
  • The Beast is not a petulant man-child who is changed by a Good Woman. His character is further fleshed out in a way that put me at ease about how the original tale is really Stockholm Syndrome dependent. A lot of questionable morals that can be gleaned from the original Beauty and The Beast dissolved under the weight of added context, better character dialogue, better pacing, etc.
  • The Beast gets a solo song and it’s GREAT???
  • Really well written dialogue and soundtrack all around. The majority of dialogue was much more witty than I had ever expected. Le Fou (Gaston’s hype man) had some lines that fell flat for me but he was the comedic relief character anyway, and enough of those made the audience laugh, and weren’t tacky jokes.
  • Yes, it’s implied that Le Fou is gay as you may have heard, but 1. only later in the film once we’ve gotten to know and like him, and 2. its NOT used as a joke. For the most of the film we see an interesting and nuanced dynamic between him and Gaston that gives a lot more life and likability to the character. The audience is only really invited to think about Le Fou’s sexuality once its appropriate, not when it can be used against him (and only very briefly, and once again and most importantly not as a form of humor). Le Fou is Comedic Relief but not Comedic Gayness.
  • Gaston’s character was given so much more strength and complexity and it made for a VERY NUANCED AND ENTICING villain. He’s given more background, and that background helps contextualize his desires and his tragic flaws way better. He’s no longer just a man lusting after a woman and jealous of her furry boyfriend, he is a man who unwittingly chases the thrill of conquest to his own demise.

I can’t help but think about Yuuri being constantly mesmerized but also FULL OF SALT because Viktor, like a fine wine or good cheese, just gets BETTER with age. He is the SILVEREST OF SILVER FOXES. Yuuri can’t handle it.

Like yes his forehead gets bigger, but that just makes him look distinguished somehow? And the lines around his eyes give him this graceful wisdom. The glasses he has to wear later in life make him look like one of those beautiful professor-type men in movies–just looking at them, you know they’ve got to be over the fifty hump, maybe even pretty far over, but you still really want to see them with their shirt off? 

Viktor plans a beach trip for their thirtieth wedding anniversary and Yuuri watches as his sixty-year-old husband shakes salt water out of his hair and rubs sunscreen into the freckles on his shoulders. What the fuck. Yuuri is sitting here in a giant T-shirt and shorts with an overlarge sunhat and sunglasses, and next to him Viktor is reenacting the ads for Gucci’s summer 2049 beachwear ad. The only thing missing is a lion cub and a yacht.

“Aren’t you going to swim?” Viktor asks, leaning back on his elbows, legs crossed at the ankles. His whole body is laid out as though to soak up as much sun as possible, and Yuuri is huddled under the umbrella, every bit of him that will fit in the shade folded into it.

“My hip is bothering me today,” Yuuri tells him, mostly as an excuse.

“The water might help with that,” Viktor tells him, and kneads a hand into the meat of Yuuri’s hip. “It’s nice and cool. Aren’t you having fun, Kitten?”

Yuuri bows his head towards him, smiles and butts their noses together. Viktor has a smear of unincorporated sunscreen on his nose that transfers onto Yuuri’s cheek. “Of course I am. I’m with you.”

Viktor makes a weak little sound against his shoulder. “The things you say. Even now.”

“They’re true,” Yuuri says, and takes his hand through Viktor’s hair.

“I know,” Viktor sighs. “But sometimes I still can’t believe that you’re spending your life with me. Thirty years, can you believe it?”

“No,” Yuuri chuckles honestly. “I can’t. But I’m glad it happened. And that it’s still happening.”

“Thirty years and you’re still just as beautiful as they day I married you,” Viktor says.

Yuuri looks at his husband, Number 27 on People Magazine’s list of Fifty Sexiest Men Over Fifty, and blushes harder than he has since he was in his twenties. 

“Says Russia’s Golden Silver Fox.”

“I hated that article,” Viktor says. His fingers are tracing patters on Yuuri’s thigh. “It made no sense. Silver and gold clash. Anyone with a brain knows that.”

“I don’t think that was the point, Vitya.”

Viktor grabs his hand. “Come swim with me!”

“No!” Yuuri laughs, halfheartedly trying to tug his hand back. “We’re on a beach surrounded by twenty-somethings and unlike you, I have the waistline of a fifty-six year old man.”

“Then come back to our hotel room and I’ll show you the things your fifty-six-year-old waistline can do to me,” Viktor murmurs, and nips gently at Yuuri’s thigh just below the hem of his shorts.

“Well…” Yuuri twirls a lock of Viktor’s hair in his finger. “We do have a few hours before dinner.”

Yuuri lets Viktor cling to him like an octopus on the walk back to their room. Yuuri may be thirty-two years older than he was in the winter of 2016, but he is still the man who took pride in stealing Viktor Nikiforov out from under Russia’s nose–and he is still the only man who Viktor Nikiforov, Certified Fine Wine, Good Cheese, Silver Fox, has eyes for. It’s enough to make anyone feel good about their love handles. 

(Viktor thinks that Yuuri’s love handles are to be celebrated. But that’s another post.)
