Yuri!!! On Stage Event Report!

So today (4/29/2017) I went to the Yuri on Ice Yuri on Stage event. To clarify though, I was not at the actual Tokyo event, rather a live viewing at a local movie theater. Which of course does alter the experience but it’s the next best thing. At first I thought the theater was only doing the afternoon session, but very last minute I ended up being able to attend both!

summary: turns out, dacre gets a little nervous when asked about you in interviews. and when he gets nervous, he word vomits. a lot.

“So, Dacre, how would you describe filming season three, compared to season two?”

You glanced up from your spot against the wall, watching as Dacre gave the interviewer a charming grin. You just let out the softest of snorts, earning a glare from the head of PR, Allison Hendrix. You just gave her a small shrug. They were using lav mics, for crying out loud. No lav mic was going to pick up a sound that quiet from across the room.

“Well, I, uh, I’d have to say that it’s been just as fun, if not more fun. I’m much more relaxed this time around, since I’m not the newest person on set.” He chuckled softly, hands flexing against his leg. He did that often, you’d noticed, whenever he’d want to look off camera. The entire cast had been sat down just after filming, everyone having to go through yet another meeting on interview tips and what you weren’t supposed to do. Everybody else had already been coached on such things, but you were the new one. Since you were the only one, and they didn’t want to single you out, they’d made everyone do mock interviews, and then pointed out each others flaws.

It had been a long day.

“Right, of course. Y/N Y/L/N is playing a new character this season, right? Anything you can give us on the character, or how she interacts with Billy?” With that question, Dacre did look off camera, a sly grin on his face as he cocked a brow to Allison.

“What exactly am I allowed to say?” He called back, gaze flickering to you and lingering for a moment. You knew exactly how this would play off on camera. The cheeky Australian wanting to spill the beans on season three. It had been all the rage in the media recently to pretend to leak things about upcoming projects. Dacre wasn’t stupid. It’d be easier to play along with that angle and actually not get in trouble for once on accidentally spoiling things.

“When is this being released?”

“Uh, lemme check,” the interviewer said, grabbing her phone and flicking through whatever apps to find the answer. Dacre looked to the interview for a moment, who was obviously having a little trouble finding the date, and looked back to you. He shot you a crooked grin, the sight making your heart do a little tap dance in your chest. “Two weeks after the season premiere.”

“Say whatever the hell you want that won’t give away anything for season four.”

Dacre gave a quick nod of his head, then winked in your general direction. It was easier for you to roll your eyes than read anything into it. The two of you had been flirting back and forth the entire time you’d been on set, and it was that that had made the PR department decide that you two would be paired up for interviews, despite the fact that the man had yet to make a single move on you. As far as you were concerned, he was just flirtatious.

“Right, so season three, me and Y/C/N, absolutely hate each other. Like, burning, passionate hate. It’s great. It’s a lot of fun to play around with, and she’s just, she’s incredible to work with. She’s absolutely brilliant.” Dacre wasn’t looking at you while he said those things, but then again, he didn’t have to be for your cheeks to burn red. The interviewer nodded her head slowly, most likely picking up on the almost - dare you say it - reverent  tone that he’d adopted.

“So you’d say that she’s great to work with?”

“Absolutely. I really believe that it’s going to translate so well onto the screen.”

“Well, from the trailer and few scenes that have been released, the chemistry between you two is palpable. How was it working on set?” The interviewer was speaking a little faster now, in a way that made you perk up. Maybe you were just being paranoid, but it seemed as though she was leading him somewhere.

“It’s the most fun that I’ve had in a long time. It’s waking up every day and going to work with your best g- friend.” He stumbled over the word friend, making you frown. In all the days that you’d been doing the interview circuit with him, you couldn’t remember once him stumbling over a word. And even if he had, his cheeks had never reddened like that before.

“I could see that. It’s like living the dream, right?” Dacre gave a nod of his head, hands clenching in his lap. He looked a little nervous now, his smile a little tense as he regarded the interviewer. You glanced over to the woman beside you, who probably should have suggested a short break for him to collect himself. But she seemed to be waiting for something, like she knew precisely where this was going. “Would you say that the chemistry between the two of you is the same off camera?”

“I’d say so, yeah,” he gave in and glanced towards the head of PR, just a brief little distraction, but a big show for his nerves. He looked back to the interviewer in the middle of her next question.

“Why would you say that is?”

He answered so fast it was obvious that his words were quicker than his brain in that moment.

“Probably because I really like her.”

Written for: Melissa’s Birthday/1000K Followers Challenge

Words: 6062

Pairing: Dean x Reader x Sam

Prompt: Reader is shy (but secretly kinky)

Warning: SMUT, Dom/Sub Relationship, Language, Minor Angst, Polyamory,

A/N: I’m pretty confident that this is the smuttiest thing I’ve ever written. I apologize for nothing. Happy Birthday Melissa and I sincerely hope you enjoy this. All errors are my own, gifs/pics found on google, and as always feedback is very much appreciated.

Summary: Dean and Sam realized a long time ago they were in love with their shy hunting partner, but never thought they’d ever had a chance. Needless to say, a random accident leads the boys to a shocking truth about her and hopes that just maybe they’ll stand a chance with her after all.

Masterlist

        Sam wondered down the hallway to your room looking for your laptop. He was in desperate need of a new one but since you were away on one of your weekend excursions he figured he could easily grab yours to finish the research he had been working on. He grabbed it heading back to the library as Dean brought out the lunch he’d been making for them.

     “Isn’t that Y/N’s laptop?” Dean asked as he took a bite out of his burger. “Sure she’d be okay with that?”

     “Yeah she’s let me use it before and I’m nearly finished.”

     “Awesome. Have you heard from her?”

     “Not since we talked to her last night,” Sam offered. “You know she’ll be back tomorrow with some weird story and ply you with pie and that’ll be it. Stop worrying.”

     “I can’t help it, Sammy. You know how she is. I mean to be a hunter she’s the shyest person I know. I worry,” Dean shrugs as Sam smiles at his brother.

     “I know what you mean Dean, but she lives with two guys she’s probably just visiting friends or something. Hell maybe she has a significant other I mean we’ve never seen her hook up with anyone before,” Sam trailed off when he thought about Y/N with someone and he could see that Dean agreed. Dean and Sam had several conversations once they realized they both had feelings for you. Although they ultimately decided that neither would pursue you unless you showed an interest, they knew you probably never would. Dean admired how strong you were despite your timid nature and Sam had this desire to protect you from the world.

“I never thought I’d see the day where Tony is losing money instead of gaining it,” Clint walked into Tony’s lab.

“We’re not talking about it,” Tony grumbled.

Clint tried to hold in his laughter when he saw the statistics on his computer. The number was dropping by thousands in a matter of seconds. Tony didn’t know how to fix it, and he had no idea why everything was dropping. He never spends this much money at once, and he knows how to invest, why was it going down?

He called Pepper to see if there were any problems he didn’t know about, and when even she was freaking out, he knew this problem was far above them. Something was going on behind the scenes that he didn’t know about, and he had no idea how to solve it. “I don’t just lose money. And if I do, it’s definitely not that fast.”

“I’ll check with Natasha, she might have an idea of what might be happening,” Clint suggested and walked out.

“Yes, sir,” FRIDAY began, “There seems to be tampering on the-”

Neglected | Jughead Jones

Hi people! 

So here it is my first Riverdale imagine ever 💕

I promise I’m not ignoring your requests but I’m slowly going through all of them and will be posting them as soon as I can, so bear with me. 

Anon request: can you please write a jughead imagine where the reader is new in riverdale and they meet and then they start dating but the reader gets insecure because he spends a lot of time with betty and betty acts all bitchy and jealous because her and jughead liked each other before she moved and they fight because of that???? 

Now, it was very hard for me to portray Betty as “bitchy” because she’s a precious cinnamon roll, but I tried my best. So I hope you like it. 💕

Warnings: jealous Betty (I apologize to all Bughead shippers), insecure reader.

“I think that’s the last box kiddo, thanks for helping out.” Y/N’s dad said taking the empty box to put it with the rest to dispose of them later. “Why don’t you go to explore for a bit while I finish arranging everything?”

“Is it okay if I go take a walk? I want to see what’s around here.”

“Sure, just be very careful and take your phone with you.” Y/N nodded and took her jacket before walking out the door.

Y/N had just moved with her dad to Riverdale after her parents disastrous divorce. It was an excruciating process full of never ending battles between them. Always fighting for the most stupid things just so they could bother the other and Y/N was tired of it.

So after being part of the collateral damage from the war between her parents, she decided she needed a change of air.

Once the divorce process was completed, months after their first fight with their lawyers, her dad told her he was moving away to his hometown to look for a bit of calm. She didn’t hesitate when she asked him to take her with him. She just wanted to get away from the house she was living in, to take a break of everything that happened.

Her mom put a bit of a fight in that, but she was old enough to decide with who she wanted to live with, so eventually she let her go.

She was aware that it may not be the most exciting thing to spend your high school years in a very small town. And school year had already started, so she would have a bit of trouble fitting in and catching up with every subject. But in all honesty, surviving high school would be more than enough at this point.

She continued to walk along the almost empty streets of Riverdale. The chilly air was doing wonders to calm her mind so she just trusted her feet to take her wherever they wanted.

After a few minutes walking, she noticed some cars parked from a distance. A big screen in front of them, projecting the iconic James Dean in “Rebel without a cause”.

Curiosity kicked in taking her steps towards that place, eventually noticing it was a drive-in. According to the sign in the entrance, it was the last night it would be open. It was a shame she just got there that day.

She now understood why the streets were almost devoid of people.

The place was packed with cars. People were gathering up in front of a small stand in order to buy some snacks and popcorn.

After some debating with herself, she decide to sit on the ground by the snacks stand. She had a decent view of the screen and she didn’t feel that lonely. She might be going against the rules of the drive-in, since she didn’t brought a car, but she wanted to stay and watch the movie to enjoy the last night of the drive-in like the rest of Riverdale.

-

30 good minutes passed before it started to get colder. She buried face in the front of her jacket rubbing her arms at the same time, trying to create some friction to keep her warm. As much as she tried though, after a bit, it became too cold to bear.  

She looked around, seeking for a place to stay to watch the rest of the movie where she would be shielded from the cold. She actually thought of going to someone and ask them if she could stay in their car with them, but that would be way too weird and creepy.

All of sudden, her eyes caught a sight of the small booth where the movie was being projected, her feet already approaching it.

Without a second thought, she entered the booth before anyone caught her. The warmth immediately enveloped her, her lips breaking into a content smile. She closed the door behind her rubbing her hands together to get rid of the cold burning her skin.

“What are you doing here?” an accusing voice made her jump. She turned around placing her eyes on the raven haired boy sitting in front of her, scrutinizing her with his eyes.

“I-I’m really sorry.” she apologized with her cheeks burning in embarrassment. “I thought no one was here.” he raised his brows waiting for an explanation that she hadn’t given him yet. “I didn’t mean to intrude or anything, but I was freezing out there.” he frowned, increasing the embarrassment she was feeling.  

“What about your car?” he asked still suspicious. “It’s a drive-in, you know?”

“I know but I came here by myself… walking, I mean.” his gaze was making her uncomfortable as he studied her face with curiousness, almost reading her like an open book. She fidgeted in her place awkwardly trying to hide herself from his prying stare.“I’m really sorry, I’ll just go.”

“No” he said stopping her as she was already turning around with her hand reaching for the door. “It’s fine.”

He sighed and pointed to the spot next to him with his head. She thought about it for a moment before she hesitantly took slow steps towards him. He sensed her doubt and offered her a half smile, patting the seat next to him inviting her to sit.

“So are you enjoying the movie?” he asked while adjusting the beanie covering his head.

“Well…I’m more of a Tarantino type of girl but I can appreciate a good 50’s James Dean movie.” she replied shrugging carelessly.

“So you’re into unconventional structure and racial epithets. All up for controversy, I see.” he commented wit a teasing smile earning an amused chuckle from her. “I’m Jughead.”

What a curious name she thought.

“Y/N”

“You’re new here.” he wasn’t asking, he was telling her he knew she was new in town. It wasn’t a surprise though. In such a small town, new people stood out like a sore thumb.

“I am, just got here today.” she confirmed hugging her knees.

“Why now? School year already started.” he said confused. It was weird for someone to move to Riverdale, let alone when everyone had already resumed their activities after the summer.  

“Yeah, but my parents’ divorce trial just ended so…you know.” she trailed off not wanting to get into a deep conversation about her broken family.

“That sucks.” he simply replied focusing his eyes on the movie once again.

“I’d like it better this way, though.”she admitted. “They’re not at each other’s throat all the time anymore so it’s cool.”

She took the chance to look around the place, noticing that apart from the films that were piled in a corner, there were also clothes and bags next to what looked like an improvised bed. There were also a couple of pictures on the walls and some canned food resting on the ground. All in all, it looked way too personal for just a working place. It was more of a dorm where a college student spent their days when he wasn’t in class. “You work here?” she asked, curiosity taking the best of her.

“I won’t anymore after tonight.” he replied, his expression turning sour. “People don’t care about this place, even if it represents a historical and monumental part of this town, they don’t seem to mind its closing.”  

“I’m sorry, it’s really a shame I got here the last day of its existence. It seems like this place means a lot to you.”

“Yeah, this place is almost like home.” he said with sarcasm dripping from every word.

It was then when she understood that he definitely lived in that little booth. She ignored the reasons why he had to do such thing, but she knew that they were going to take his home away from him.

She didn’t want to say anything further so she wouldn’t get to any touching subject.

They both kept quiet for the rest of the movie, sometimes interrupting to make a comment on a specific scene.

There was not an awkward tension between them and weird enough, Jughead didn’t feel the need to shut Y/N out as he would with any other stranger. Sure he was now friends with Kevin and Veronica, but that was mostly because of Betty, cause if it wasn’t for her, he would probably have never even spoken to them.  

Soon enough, the credits were rolling on the screen. People put away their blankets and threw away their left over popcorn before starting their cars to leave.

Y/N stood up from her seat, once she saw the cars lining up in the exit, the place slowly emptying. She zipped up her jacket and placed her hands on her pockets before offering Jughead a smile.

“Thank you for letting me stay.” she said making him smirk.

“My pleasure.” he replied standing up too.

“I’ll see you around, yeah?” Y/N asked before stepping outside.

“I bet you will.” Jughead said with his smirk not wavering. She silently chuckled while closing the door behind her, walking home with a smile on her face.

~~~*~~~

Y/N exited her classroom once the bell rang indicating lunch time. She joined the group of students eager to reach the cafeteria so they wouldn’t have to wait in line to get their lunch. Most of them just anxious to gossip with their group of friends.

Y/N was distractedly looking at her feet, careful to not trip with someone else’s feet when a hand reached for hers, interlacing their fingers together. She raised her head, her gaze meeting a pair of green eyes paired up with a mischievous smile. She leaned into Jughead’s shoulder, as he placed a kiss on the back of her hand.  

After that night in the drive-in, it didn’t take long for them to meet again. They shared one of their classes and as soon as she entered the classroom, Y/N recognized that grey beanie. She immediately made a beeline to the seat next to Jughead, him greeting her with a small smile.

She was more than grateful that she finally had someone to ease her embarrassment caused by the constant blatant stares of her classmates.

Throughout the days, they spent plenty of time together, becoming closer and closer. It wasn’t a surprise when they started dating, pretty much everyone saw that coming.

“So apparently the most talked about thing here, it’s still Cheryl Blossom’s continuous breakdowns.” he greeted her with a random comment, just like he did everyday.

“Well, she keeps publicly addressing her brother so it’s not much of a surprise.” she admitted. “I don’t blame her though.”

“I have no comments on the matter.” Jughead said, clearly saving some strong opinions about the situation. Y/N just shook her head while laughing.

“Hey, are you up for a movie tonight?” she asked changing to a lighter subject.

“Sorry, I can’t. I already have plans.” He lowered her head, almost shying away from her eyes. He  looked almost ashamed as he tightened the grip on her hand.

“Oh, it’s okay. We can hang out other day.” she tried hard to keep the disappointment out of her voice, and as curious as she was, she decided not to ask him about his plans.

“Hey guys!” Archie greeted them once they met them at one of the tables. Y/N said hi to everyone and took her usual seat next to Veronica.

Veronica had moved to Riverdale a couple of weeks before Y/N, so she knew what it was like to be the new girl in town. Veronica took her under her wing right away, becoming great friends in no time.

“Hey, are you up for some pampering after school?” she questioned. “I’m in desperate need of a mani-pedi and a face mask.”

“Sure!” Y/N replied, playing with an apple. “I was planning on hanging out with Jughead but he’s busy, so I’m down.” Veronica clapped her hands excited as Y/N turned around to face the blonde girl in front of them.

“Do you wan to come with us Betty?” She asked, offering her a kind smile.

Although Jughead was the first person she met in Riverdale, it was actually Veronica who introduced her to the rest of her friends. They were very nice, easily getting along with her and including her in their little group dynamics. They were all very welcoming, except for one person: Betty.

She wasn’t rude or insulting, but she wasn’t necessarily thrilled whenever Y/N was around. She avoided Y/N like the plague, being cold and cutting every time she spoke to her.

Despite Betty’s obvious dislike of her, Y/N kept trying to approach her and made sure she knew she was always included in her plans with Veronica, but she was never interested.

That was the main reason why Jughead was a bit hesitant to spend time with Betty when they first started dating. Y/N took notice of this and instantly reassured him that no matter what, she understood how important Betty was to him and actually, encouraged him to hang out with her.

But no matter what she did, it was never enough to get Betty to stop acting the way she did.

“I’m busy today.” She curtly replied. “Jughead and I are going to work on an article for The Blue and Gold.” Betty took a look at Y/N’s face while raising her brow.

Jughead cringed on his place, trying to shield himself from everybody’s looks that were now focused on him. Y/N could tell that everyone tensed at Betty’s statement, but she didn’t understand why. Of course she was confused on why would Jughead would hide that from her, when he usually told her whenever he was going to hang out with Betty, but it wasn’t anything worthy of that reaction. They were childhood friends after all. There was nothing wrong with them wanting to hang out for a day.  

“Cool, I’m looking forward to read whatever you guys come up with.” Y/N said with a smile on her face, causing Archie, Veronica and Kevin to look at her with wide eyes.

The atmosphere on the table became awkward after that, and no one seemed to know how to break the silence. The only sound filling their ears, being the chatter from the tables around them.

There was something more complicated regarding Betty and Jughead, and concern was already planting itself on Y/N’s mind.

-

“So what do you think, peel off or clay mask?” Veronica asked Y/N showing her two containers of face masks. Y/N sighed and dropped her head.

“Ronnie can I ask you a question?” she said, randomly changing the subject, causing a frown to appear on her friend’s face.

“Sure, what’s up?” she replied as she placed both products on the table.

“Why was everyone so tense when Betty said she would be hanging out wth Jughead?” As if on cue, Veronica’s back straightened, her whole body rigid with tension. She rubbed her forehead with her fingers and sighed while a serious expression took over her face.

“You really don’t know anything about Jughead and Betty’s history, do you?”

“They are childhood friends and they are really close…what about it?” Y/N inquired, still confused on why was that such a big deal to everyone else.

“That’s not what I meant.” Veronica said shaking her head. She shifted in her place, bracing herself for what she was about to tell her. “So you already know how Archie broke Betty’s heart, right?” Y/n nodded. “After that happened, Jughead came into the picture. He started to get really close with Betty always being there for her. Apparently they had a thing for each other… until you came.”

“Wha-what?” Saying that she felt overwhelmed was an understatement. She nearly felt dizzy at the news.

“That’s why Betty doesn’t like you. You basically stole Jughead away from her, even though you weren’t aware of that.” she flinched as she recalled her first week in Riverdale. “I mean two heartbreaks in a row, is not something easy to deal with.”  

“Oh God.” Y/N shut her eyes, desperately trying to get a grip of her emotions.

“That’s also why we all looked at you like you were crazy when you were so cool about it. It wasn’t normal for you to react that way when Betty pretty much rubbed on your face that she was going to be alone with Jughead.” she frowned. “It’s very weird because Betty is one of the nicest girls I know, so it’s interesting to watch her being so defensive.”

She felt the wind being knocked out of her and her chest felt heavy with uncertainty. She had been so oblivious to the relationship between Betty and Jughead had before she came. It all made so much sense now.

Now that everything was on the table, she couldn’t help but to feel a bit insecure. She trusted Jughead, but it was such a messed up situation there was no telling how it could end. Besides, she didn’t understand why Jughead had been keeping something that important from her.

“But don’t overthink Y/N, he’s wrapped around your finger. You have nothing to worry about.” she comforted her rubbing her knee, before going back to the face masks.

-

Little by little, insecurity spread through Y/N’s system taking over her rational thoughts and drowning her in an ocean of self destruction. The realization that if it wasn’t for her, Jughead and Betty would most likely be together, hit her like a truck.

Her confidence had received a major blow and she didn’t know how to handle it. How can you compete with the perfect green eyed beauty that is your boyfriend’s childhood friend? It’s even worse when you get the news that at some point, they were romantically interested in each other.  

Y/N was doing exactly what Veronica told her not to do. She was over thinking everything that revolved around Betty and Jughead.

She couldn’t help but notice every time that Betty touched Jughead whenever she was speaking to him. How she always giggled at his minimum sarcastic comment. How in every difficult situation, she always relied on Jughead to make it better. And the worst part, the way Jughead seemed to have a soft spot for her as he let his guard down completely around her.  

Y/N was on the brink of paranoia. She had already pictured every single worst case scenario, feeling guilty a couple of hours later for doubting of Jughead.

But it was practically impossible to get rid of her thoughts when Jughead had been blowing her off the last few weeks, because he had already made plans with Betty.

In numerous occasions she asked him to hang out, but every single time he gave her the same excuses.

“Betty has a lot on her mind lately.” “Betty needs my help for The Blue and Gold.” “Betty wants to do some research.”

No matter what, Betty only wanted Jughead’s help and no one else’s. And Jughead couldn’t refuse her the help that she needed, without any second thoughts.

And one can only take so much rejection before giving up. And she had had enough.

She started to withdraw from Jughead. Not avoiding him, but she wasn’t looking for his attention anymore.

Her pain wasn’t about Betty and Jughead’s past at all. It was the fact that he seemed to choose Betty over her all the time, not dividing his time between the two of them. He didn’t have time to be with her anymore and his carelessness was killing her.

Her friends noticed the change in her behavior. Especially because, even if it wasn’t her intention, she was also withdrawing from them with her mind always wandering elsewhere. She didn’t smile as often as she used to and when she did, it looked forced. She didn’t participate in the group’s conversations, keeping quiet at all times. And despite everyone asking her if something was wrong, she didn’t open up to anyone, always dismissing her mood.

But all her friends agreed that she looked pretty defeated.

That went on for some days, until one day Jughead caught her in the hallway between classes.

“Hey.” he greeted her, securing an arm around her shoulders. “I feel like I haven’t seen you in forever.” she felt her heart break a little when his lips placed a kiss on her temple.  

“Yeah, it’s been a while.” she awkwardly said with a grimace, focusing her gaze on the floor.

“I was thinking that we could go to Pop’s tonight.” she showed her that cute little smile of his. “I know we haven’t been able to hang out and I really want to spend some time with you. I’ve missed you.” he brushed his nose against her cheek, wordlessly telling her, he had been craving her touch.

But as cute and adorable as he was acting at the moment, she couldn’t bring herself to push her heartache away.

“I-I can’t tonight Jug, sorry.” she avoided his gaze as she quickly escaped from his embrace, taking fast steps towards her next class.

Jughead stood in the middle of the hallway with his arm stretched to her, a hurt and confused expression plastered on his face. It was now clear, that whatever was going on with her, it was way deeper than he originally thought.  

  •  

Two days after the encounter with Jughead, she decided that enough was enough. She had to stop running away from her problems and face them once and for all. Otherwise, there would be no  way to solve the situation.

She tied up her sneakers and threw on her jacket before setting off to Archie’s house. She knew it was a bit late for a talk, but hopefully Jughead would be as understanding and kind as always. He never failed to be there for her.

She knocked on the door and waited for a few seconds before Jughead opened the door.

His expression morphed into a mix of confusion and nervousness in a flash. Maybe Archie’s dad was already home and didn’t like any late night visits.

“Hey.” he breathed. “What are you doing here?”

“I needed to see you.” she peeked behind him, to see if someone was around. “Is Archie home?”

“No, why?” he turned around to look inside for a bit, mainly to avoid looking her in the eye.

“I have to talk to you about something.” she pushed, trying hard to caught his gaze.

“Now’s not a good time Y/N.”Jughead fidgeted on his feet, his head shaking.

“I know it’s late but I-“ her sentence was cut short by a very familiar voice.

“Juggie who is it?” Betty asked, appearing from behind, placing her hand on Jughead’s shoulder to rest her chin on top of it. Y/N sighed frustrated, his previous behavior now making sense.

“Figures.” she scoffed before turning around, moving far away from the house as fast as she could without looking desperate.

“Y/N wait!” he yelled, the sound of a door closing hitting her ears. She quickened her pace once she heard his rushed footsteps approaching. Soon, he caught up to her and grabbed her arm, stopping her on her tracks. “Hey it’s-it’s not what it looks like. You know she’s only my friend.” he stumbled over his words, looking a bit frantic.

“I know you’re not cheating on me Jughead, I trust you enough to know that you wouldn’t do that.” she exclaimed offended.

“The why are you so upset?” he grabbed her faced with a concerned look. “I know something’s wrong but I thought you needed some space to figure things out before you wanted to talk about it.” Y/N sighed, bracing herself for the conversation that she had been avoiding for so long.

“Why didn’t you tell me that you and Betty had thing for each other before I came?” Jughead’s face  immediately turned pale, his mouth going completely dry. Y/N knew she hit the nail on the head with her question.

“I-I don’t know.” he whispered. “It’s not a big deal.”  

“It is when that’s the reason why Betty dislikes me so much.” she brushed a hand trough her hair frustratedly. “You know I don’t mind that you want to spend time with your friends, but lately you’ve been spending a lot of your time with Betty. So much, that we actually stopped hanging out altogether, because you’re always with her.”

“Don’t be like that. You know that Betty is going through a lot.” he defended her, his voice rising with anger.

“Jughead I’ve been avoiding this conversation for a while because I didn’t want to come off as crazy or obsessive. And tonight I finally decided that I’ve had enough and that I needed to talk to you about it, but once again I’m being blown off because of Betty!”

“She needs me!” they were both yelling at this point and it was very likely that the neighbors were listening to their argument.

“I need you too!” she screeched as her eyes became glassy. She took a deep breath before continuing, now with a lower voice. “But I don’t want to be competing with Betty for your time, and most definitely I’m not going to put you in a position where you have to choose between us.” she pushed back her tears, not wanting to break in front of him. “I’m tired Jughead. I don’t want to be stuck in this situation anymore.” Jughead closed his fists by his sides, his chest rising and falling in quick breaths.

“Fine. If that’s what you want.” he bitterly replied clenching his jaw before stomping back to Archie’s house, slamming the door behind him.

She turned around, finally letting out all her bottled up emotions, the tears falling freely from her eyes.  

Camp Headcanons (Evan Hansen x Reader)

Anon. requested: “This could be hc or a fic but reader and Evan go to a wilderness camp (trees!!) (they don’t know that the other is going) they end up thinking Evans name is a girls name (like evana or something like that idk) and you get put in a cabin together (like each cabin has two people or something ) and it’s too late to change so you spend the summer basically living together and find out you actually really like each other maybe smut idk”

THIS IS REALLY LONG SORRY

I liked this a lot!!! So here’s my first headcanon feel free to request more!!!

*fem!reader btw

Warnings: smut smut smUT SMUT

••••

-Heidi probably saw the camp on Facebook and signed Evan up bc “you need to get out of the house” and “you’ll like it look at all the nature!! Trees!!!”
-hes low key hype bc there’s so many new trees!! he’s only seen pictures of them!!! now he’ll get to go and see them irl!!
-but also high key anxious™ because he knows he’ll have to interact with all new people
-and he’s not all excited about having to share cabins with people but hey at least it’s boys with boys and girls with girls, right? (wrONG)
-you’re going bc you wanted a change of scenery
-you’re v outdoorsy and have unfortunately already seen everything to see in your town nature wise, and even been on hikes and walks outside your town.
-you saw the camp and were like “why not, new people, new scenery”
-you and Evan go to the same school btw you know each other but don’t talk. You’ve seen him around and smile at him in hallways and class and such but it’s just bc you’re nice.
-usually he tries to smile back but just averts his eyes and walks
-you’re just so nice to him?? and he doesn’t understand but he definitely has a low key crush on you
-like you know what I mean he isn’t pining after you very much but he low key would date you and wants to ask you out but he’s so anxious and you’re so pretty?
-you get to the camp first and go to information station and get ur cabin # and roomie name
-it says Evana Hansen (eh-vawn-uh)
-“wow what a cool name hehe that sounds a lot like that Evan kid at school wonder if they’re related”
-“wow that would suck if they are why would you name your kids so closely” ((side note fun fact my friends Mom almost named her and her twin Alexander and Alexandria yikes))
-so you go to the cabin and choose a bed and start putting some clothes in the dresser and closet on that side of the cabin
-door opens, you turn around to greet evana
-ur met with a very red, shocked, Evan
-“oh, hey? I think you have the wrong cabin, sorry?”
-“n-no so-orry they, uh, they had my n-name as E-evana? A-and though I-I-I was a girl I g-guess, sorry”
-“oh, haha, that sucks. Well, hey roomie, I’m y/n”
-hes just so shook bc you’re not like freaking out?? He thought you’d say he was a creep and that he probably hoped they’d think he was a girl and put him in a cabin with a girl or something
-but you’re so nice to him and you introduce himself and then the whole “I know” scene happens"
-“you know?” “Yeah well I’ve just seen you in science class and you know a lot about nature and trees and stuff and I just really like trees” or something along those lines
-you ask him his favorite tree and he’s so shocked bc!! That’s like such a weird thing for someone to have and you actually thought he might have a fav tree!! And he does!!
-you guys talk for a while about trees and nature in general until it’s time for dinner and then he’s all nervous about it
-so he’s definitely fidgeting with the hem of his shirt and you notice and recognize his tick and carefully take his hand in yours
-he jumps a bit and at first you’re like “ah shit sorry I should’ve asked you just looked nervous i was trying to help calm you”
-and he just kinda stutters that is okay but he’s blushing so much
-so for the next couple weeks of camp you guys have this best friends relationship and talk and hang out even when you don’t have to and stay up late talking together
-and then there’s a few movie events at camp where you can lay out a blanket on the lawn and watch horror movies (mostly cabin in the woods type bc teenagers are fucking masochists) on a big screen
-you love horror movies and were hype to go and Evan is like meh not so much but he’s still gonna go he’s just gonna probably cry a lil bit
-but he ends up getting the courage to ask you out to go
-“do y-you maybe wanna, go to th-th-that, uh, that horror m-movie, uh, to-together? I mean I guess we’re already going together but like together together like as a d-date” he speaks hella fast and ur just
-“Evan, honey, calm down, yes I’d love to go on a date with you” and he’s just a happy blushing mess
-you kiss his cheek and go out to the dining hall and he blushes again
-he doesn’t know you heard him go “yES!” when you left but you did and giggle until he catches up to you.
-low key holding hands under the table from now on
-so Evans a nervous wreck during the movie bc it’s scary and creepy
-and it’s Friday the 13th so he’s all kinda of freaking out bc there’s a big lake near the camp you’re at
-(you notice he tries to stay far from the lake there ever since y'all watched the movie)
-you see this and stroke your thumb on his hand
-jump scares definitely scare and make him jump and he squeezes your hand a bit each time so you just lay your head on his shoulder and kiss his cheek every once in a while
-he’s hella blushy at the nude scenes
-but y'all survive the movie and hold hands walking back to the cabin
-and you get there and he’s still hella freaked out so when you come out of the bathroom after putting in pajamas you see him sitting on his bed fidgeting and sit next to him and just hug him
-after a few minutes you get up to go to your own bed and he just holds on
-“p-please don’t l-leave”
-so you cuddle all night and it’s kinda awkward and clumsy but it’s still so warming and comforting
-you guys keep going to some of the movies but none of the really creepy cabin in the woods ones (no matter how much you want to)
-you take the time that almost all of camp is at movies to go on cute little dates and walks together and you just talk and maybe make out a little (you guys had your first kiss the morning after that first movie and like two weeks later he got comfortable enough to do some light making out)
-and then sometime a month and a half after y'all do the nastayyyy
-okay but they’re playing Nightmare On Elm Street and you both decided the last thing Evan needs is to be afraid to sleep so you guys definitely skip this one.
-You chill out at the cabin instead and just talk and cuddle
-you guys kiss and start to make out
-you were both sitting on his bed (which is both of yours now lets be real yall fall asleep cuddling there like every night) at first but after like five minutes you’re straddling him and sitting in his lap with your arms around his neck loosely.
-you can definitely feel the tent in his pants get bigger after you’ve been sitting in his lap for a while and moved a bit to adjust your position and pull back
-“o-oh go-od i-I’m sorry I-I get it I-if y-you wanna dump m-me and g-get a n-new cabin n-now”
-“Evan it’s fine… do you want me to, maybe, help you out?” ;))
-“oh, uh, y-yeah, I-if you want though”
-so you go back to making out and slowly make your way to his jawline and neck and start with kissing lightly but after a moment you’re giving him hickeys around the neckline of his t-shirt.
-he just mOANS but he’s so embarrassed by it and blushes
-he’s rolling and unrolling the hem of your shirt now and you pull back and put your hands on It like you’re gonna take it off
-you look at him like ‘is this okay?’ And he just nods (a little excitedly and it’s just so cute’
-so you slowly take your shirt off and fling it onto your bed and he just doesn’t know what to do so you slowly take his hands, again checking to make sure it’s okay, and direct them to your chest.
-at first they just sit there but eventually he starts to slowly massage them
-you bite your lip and ur slightly holding back a moan but also wishing he would pick up the pace a bit
-you reach for his shirt and he tenses but give you the okay and you take it off and fling it to yours
-your hands instantly rest on his chest and you’re just shook because he seems like he’d be a baby and have like no hair but he’s got a hella hairy chest
-and it def turns you on a bit more
-after some more making out he eventually lets his hands travel to your back and he fumbles with the clip but gets your bra off pretty fast
-Youre hella impressed like that was good for his first time
-he kisses your lips and slowly and hesitantly travels down to kiss your jaw and then collarbone and then the top of your breast
-he leaves a hickey there and you just let out a moan and man that turns him on
-this boy definitely could get off to your pleasure and moans
-after a while you stand to take off your shorts and he slips his off too real quick
-you push him to lay back on the bed and climb on top and straddle him again
-you grind down a bit and he lets out a groan and it’s so deep and turns you tf on
-you lean down and kiss his Adam’s apple and then down his neck and leave more hickeys on his his collarbone and he moans and rests his hands on your waist
-he’s rubbing the fabric of your panties between his thumb and finger and you can tell he’s low key itching to get it off so you stand up to do so and he has this look of realization
-“uh, do you have a condom?”
-at first you’re like shit and upset but remember you have a few still in your backpack
- thank god ou never empty the small pockets and you brought this bag
-hes so relieved and watches as you take your panties off and walk over and slowly pull his boxers down
-hes leaning against his elbows (and looks hella hot with the amount of hickeys and his swollen lips and bare chest) and blushes when his member springs free
-youre kinda rushing and rip the condom open and quickly put it on his cock and he’s just biting his lip
-“have you ever done this before?” “N-no, sorry, I-is that a problem?” “No, it’s fine, babe, I’m just gonna take the lead”
-climbing on top again you give him a gentle kiss and sit up, slowly lowering yourself onto him
-he suppressed a moan and you bite your lip, making sure he’s okay before you start riding him
-hes a groaning mess and he slowly stars to thrust up every time you slam down onto him
-your hands travel to his hair and you lace your fingers through it
-he definitely finds this hot and has a kink like this, not necessarily hair pulling but just running fingers through his hair
-your eyes are closed so you don’t notice his hands move to rest on your waist until they’re there and then his thumb is at your core
-you shudder a bit at the contact and he slowly starts to rubs your clit a bit and you moan so loud
-you both come within a minute after that and when your done you tie up and throw the condom away and cuddle
-after putting on underwear at least because you both agree sheets and blankets on your dick/vagina is hella weird feeling
-needless to say you both are very glad you came to camp :) ;)
-youre both glad you came to camp because you both came at camp ((BRB DELETING MY BLOG IM SORRY FOR THAT))

Wedding Series #13 Part 1: The Night Before (His POV)

A/N: I’ll have it from your POV after this! I hope you enjoy! ~Admin Unnie

Jin:

“Hyung, are you okay?” Jin looked up as Jungkook took a tentative step towards him.

“Of course I’m okay! Do I look not okay to you? Why would you be asking if i’m okay?” Jin rushed out.

“Because if you chop up those vegetables anymore, there will be nothing left to put in the stew.” Jin looked down to see what is now practically onion zest from how finely he’d chopped the vegetable. He quickly dropped the knife and leaned against the counter, gripping the corner so tightly his knuckles turned white as he heavily sighed. He felt Jungkook approach him and place his hand on his back in a comforting way. “It’s okay for you to be nervous and have doubts.” He said as he rubbed Jin’s back. “It’s normal actually. But the reason why you’re having doubts will determine if you’re ready for the marriage.”

Jin looked up at him. “What if she decides that I’m not what she wants? What if we go through this whole wedding, and she just packs up and leaves me? I don’t know if I could handle that.”

Jungkook smiled at him. “And that’s how you know you’re ready. You’re not worried about not being single anymore. You’re worried about what would happen if you become single again.”

Jin let out a half hearted laugh. “When did you become so wise?”

“I’ve been hanging out with Namjoon hyung a lot. You should try it, you might learn a lot from him.”

“Come in!” Yoongi called out as he heard someone knocking on his studio door.

“Hey, hyung.” Hoseok walked in and set a cup of coffee on the desk in front of him, glancing at the computer screen to see that Yoongi was editing together a video of pictures of the two of you, a song that he had never heard before playing in the background. “What’s this?”

“A wedding gift for y/n.”

“And the song?”

“A part of it.” Yoongi made one final click before deciding to take a break and turning around in his chair to look at Hoseok. “Thanks for the coffee.” He said as he picked up the cup, inhaling the scent before taking a sip.

Hoseok’s eyebrows furrowed at how calm Yoongi was. “Are you not nervous?”

“Why would I be nervous?” Yoongi looked up at him.

“Because you’re about to marry the love of your life.”

“Exactly. She’s the love of my life. There’s no reason to worry.” Yoongi said, taking another sip of his coffee.

“Well, okay then.” Hoseok said, shaking his head at his friend’s logic.

Hoseok:

“I know she wants to stick with the American tradition of not seeing each other for 24 hours before the wedding, but maybe we should just call her.” Jimin said to Taehyung as they stood in front of his and Hoseok’s shared room.

“Why?”

Jimin simply opened the door to reveal Hoseok curled up in a cocoon of blankets in his bed as an answer. “He’s been switching from jumping all over the place talking about how excited he is to…well, that.”

“I’m not dealing with that.”

“Come on, Tae.”

“He’s your roommate, so have fun.” Taehyung patted him on the back before quickly leaving.

Jimin sighed as he cursed Taehyung in his head before sitting on the edge of Hoseok’s bed. “Hyung-”

“What if she leaves me at the altar tomorrow?”

“She won’t.” Jimin assured him. “And even if she does, then she wouldn’t be worth being this upset over.” Hoseok peeked his head out of the blankets to look at Jimin. “I’ve seen the way she looks at and acts around you, so trust me when I say there is no reason for you to be having these feelings.”

Hoseok sat up. “You’re right, I’m being ridiculous.” He jumped out of bed with a bright smile on his face. “Have I told you where I’m taking her for our honeymoon?!”

“Only about 20 times, but I’m glad to hear it again.”

“Now, a lot of people are against marriage because it’s a ‘government construct’. But marriages happened way before our modern governments were even in place. Even neanderthals had ceremonies and rituals they would do to bring couples together. The only difference is now governments like to give benefits to couples who are married, which I don’t agree with, because why should two people who choose to marry each other get more money than someone who doesn’t feel the need to marry to prove their love for their partner? I mean,-”

“Hyung, I’m more than happy to listen to your philosophical rants, but right now I’m trying to go to sleep.” Taehyung groaned as he stared at the wall, long having given up on playing Overwatch once Namjoon had started his rant.

“Sorry, I guess talking is helping calm my nerves.” Namjoon admitted, glad that the lights were off so Taehyung couldn’t see his face.

Taehyung turned over in bed so he was facing where he knew Namjoon’s bed was. “What was that you were saying about marriage and the government?”

Namjoon turned his head towards Taehyung’s face. “I thought you were trying to sleep?”

“Yeah, but what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t help ease your nerves? I can sacrifice some sleep in return for you being happy.”

Namjoon smiled and continued on with his previous rant.

Jimin:

“Jin hyung.”

“Yes?” Jin walked over to join Jimin off to the side of the studio, away from where everyone else was gathered.

“Am I making the right choice?”

Jimin’s question shocked Jin. “What do you mean?”

“I’m completely, head over heels, in love with y/n. And I do want to spend the rest of my life with her. But I can’t help but be worried.” Jimin leaned his head back and hit it against the wall behind him.

“If you know you’re in love with her and want to spend the rest of your life with her, then what do you have to be worried about?”

“I’ve heard all these stories about couples who had wild passionate romances, only for all of that to disappear once they put the marriage label on it.” Jimin looked over at his hyung. “I don’t want the love to disappear.”

Jin sighed. “Look into the future, how you see yourself with y/n.” Jimin nodded. “What do you see?”

“I see us, sitting around the kitchen table at dinner with our children, joking and laughing as we talk about our days.”

Jin nodded. “And is that scene loveless?”

“The exact opposite.”

“Then what are you worried about?” Jin smiled at him before standing up and offering his hand out to Jimin. “Let’s get back to practice so we can finish and go home to rest before your big day.”

“Please make him stop.” Jungkook said as he banged his head against the table.

“I’m trying to tell you my plans for my wedding, but if you can’t appreciate that, I’ll take myself somewhere else!” Taehyung dramatically closed his laptop and picked it up off the table before stomping out of the room. “Oh, Hobi hyung!” He sang as he entered Hoseok and Jimin’s room.

“Yes, Taehyung?” He froze as he looked up and saw Taehyung pulling up a presentation. “Oh, no.”

“You’re the only other person here and Jungkook has already rejected me. Oh, yes.” Taehyung gave him an evil smile before plopping on his bed and starting his detailed explanation of the day to come.

Jungkook:

“Am I too young?”

“Depends on what you mean.” Yoongi responded to Jungkook’s question without looking up from his phone.

“Too young to get married.”

“There are countries that force 8 year olds into marriage.” Yoongi finally looked up. “You’re old enough.”

“Are you sure?”

“I mean, if you’re ready for marriage is really based on if you’re mature enough for it. So if we’re talking about mental age, then no, you’re probably not old enough. If we’re talking about actual age, you’re at a perfect age to get married.”

“I guess you’re right.”

“Of course I’m right.” Jungkook threw a pillow at Yoongi, then immediately ran to his room and locked the door to avoid his wrath. “I was definitely right about the mental age.”

time lapses/jumps v continuity errors

it’s come to my attention that some of y’all tend to confuse one for the other,,, which saddens me bc skam is literally all about time lapses/jumps; it’s one of the things that makes it!!! so special!!

the time jumps in skam are meant to show you exactly that – a time jump from one cut to another. it’s a very, very small cut that could mask as a continuity error, but taken in the context it’s actually presented to us (a time jump) it has a huge impact on the scene if you keep an eye out for one

thank you @stardefiant for being a bae and helping catch some of these

anyway ahem

an example of an actual continuity error:

even’s arm in this shot is obviously around emma

but when the shot pans out, even’s arm is back at his side:

we know this is a continuity error because this scene is dialogue-heavy and meant to transition smoothly. no time has actually lapsed between even’s greeting and emma’s excited greeting in return, so there is no reason why his arm shouldn’t have stayed around emma. silly skam editors. 

now, here’s a (very obvious) example of a time jump:

The Gifted’s Polaris

Well done Marvel, well done.

Allow me to express my thoughts on the amazing T.V. show as we know it, The Gifted :)

Last night I was working but I did have my uncle record the show for me. First let me say how exciting this show was. It was one of the best X-Men shows I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Even though the first episode was just an introduction, introducing us, the audience, to the good guys, the bad guys, and the random family element, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was nice to see an “action” franchise go a little less action and add more drama. They actually mention the X-Men and the Brotherhood several times, unlike Legion. Clearly this was nothing compare to “Heroes” and certainly was better than Inhumans.

The show started with Blink running away from the police while Polaris, Eclipse, and Thunderbird were trying to recruit Blink. Sadly Lorna was captured too soon but she was still having major screen time. She must, because she’s the main character here. I know some of you think the Strucker family are the main characters but I consider them more as a plot device (don’t get me wrong). Lorna is the main. No, I’m not lying or speculating. I never do.  As a matter of fact here’s a page for ya.

Don’t ask me why Lorna has 6 episodes (because it’s obvious) and why the rest have less. Better ask me how I was right about Lorna’s being put as on a high pedestal. Usually the first cast’s names are the main. This is why y’all gonna get more Dane :) Back to the subject and quick jump to the scene where Lorna and her crew were trying to run away from the cops.

Polaris showed off her powers well. Oh my, but what an amazing Lorna we have here. Love her new perspective. I love how she knocked out the lights, clashed police’s cars, stopped bullets, and even grabbed a cop and hit it against the dumpster for shooting Eclipse. She did not kill the guy but as she said “Believe me, If I wanted those cops dead, they’d be dead” lol. What a badass thing to say. As well as when Blink asked the crew who they were, Lorna told her (after she took the object away from Blink) “We’re just a couple of freaks, same as you” lol. Lorna was so captivating. It was crystal clear she was the powerhouse as usual. Lorna was extremely amazing, period. I love the part where it shows Lorna’s power coming out from her shirt or something :)

The most interesting thing about the whole show was Lorna’s pregnancy. The pregnancy was an unexpected wrinkle. Hopefully, the writers will let her keep it. Although it seems from her reaction that she either didn’t want anyone to know or doesn’t want to be pregnant. I assume she thought they might use her child against her which makes more sense as to her reaction. She might keep it since Magneto needs some grandkids, lol.

Bryan Singer has always handled the X-Franchise (not quite) better than anyone else (but not like Marvel), so I have high hopes for this show’s (and Lorna’s) future. The family of a prosecutor who handles high-profile Mutant cases suddenly dealing with TWO Mutants in their own family is a really interesting subplot, and I am eager to see where that goes. Too bad he got captured at the end of the episode. Although the previews show him in an adjoining cell, and communicating with, Lorna. I’m sure he will tell her that her friends and his family will break them free. Blink, you fucking better hurry up and get them out, lol.

Overall, FOX and Marvel Entertainment did fantastic. I’m very happy and excited to see Lorna’s live action. Emma Dumont definitely captured Lorna’s personality. I’m glad the writer didn’t go with some of Claremont’s old stuff. It was a new fresh start for Lorna and this is exactly what @cullenbunn is doing. What people might not know is that the Gifted show is filling some holes from DOFP, IMO.

So that brings us to the speculation portion.

Let’s end the speculation and yes, I’m talking to all of y'all. Remember how I stood on my both feet saying the littler Princess from DOFP was little Princess Lorna Dane, aka Polaris, aka Mistress of Magnetism? Ok, let me ask this…  Is The Gifted connected to the X-Men films in any sort of literal sense? Probably not. But in a more general sense, does it take place in the same world as those films? Yes! Nix (writer) didn’t deny the connection, but said if a world exists in which mutant kids coming into their powers are forced to go on the run, “established mutants are going to have something to say about that.” So, what does that say?

In DOFP, Princess Lorna was from the past and Blink from the future. As you saw Blink from the future looks much older and experienced with her abilities. In The Gifted, she looks much younger and inexperienced. Obviously Blink from the past was more comparable to Lorna’s age. In The Gifted they’re both adults except Lorna is more experience than Blink is. Bryan Singer also stated that The Gifted is going to be related to the X-films. Considering she is eventually going to be introduced in The Gifted as Magneto’s daughter.

Eclipse confirmed that they don’t know if either the X-Men or Brotherhood of Mutants exist. Sounds like they knew about them. If they don’t exist it is because they are either captured, dead, hidden, or retired. Professor, who sought mutants that were in trouble, doesn’t exist. In speculation, maybe he’s dead (considering in the comic he IS dead). I was right! I was right the whole time. I guess I was the first one to discover the relation between the film and show. Well, what the hell, I’m a huge fan of Lorna Dane.

Thoughts on IT

(spoiler free unless you don’t want to know ANYTHING)

- I’m about to do what I disliked about other reviews, say who I thought was best in the film….sorry other cast members!

- Richie/Finn: Oh my god, Richie was fucking hilarious. I laughed so much, along with the whole theatre. He definitely stole the show, Finn is so talented. Its been a day and I’m still laughing at his lines when they come into my head. His sense of humour has become a lot less offensive and a hell of a lot funnier.  It feels like Richie had the most screen time and some of the other Losers suffered due to it, but I just can’t imagine cutting any of his scenes or lines

- Ben/Jeremy: I love Jeremy, but I didn’t expect to enjoy his performance as much as I did. He and Richie were my favourite losers in this film (even though Eddie and Mike were my favourite in the book) and I don’t understand why more reviews aren’t calling out Jeremy for an excellent performance like they are for Finn and Sophia. His introduction scene is probably one of my three favourite in the whole movie- another hilarious scene but it had such heart behind it and Jeremy was just brilliant, as was Sophia

- Bev/Sophia was also excellent. Bev is a really enjoyable character in this movie, she is a love interest and the film avoids making her a sexy lamp or a plot device by really adding to her character and giving her some strong individual scenes.  She’s definitely romanticized but she definitely is a lot more than a love interest. There is one scene with the whole ‘everyone is in love with Bev’ schtick but it was funny enough that I didn’t mind. I think the film also avoided the damsel in distress trope pretty well. Bev is a really interesting, well defined character and Sophia did a great job!

- I don’t have much to say about the others but they were all great! Great performances from all, they just didn’t stand out as much as those three

- I really enjoyed the Losers Club and their dynamic as a team and as a friendship. I wish we had gotten just a little more scenes like the swimming one, where they are just having fun (after all, they played games in between fighting IT in the novel) but it was pretty clear that the film was cramped for time…

- the film did feel at times like it was rushing through a checklist of scenes that it had to get through, to set up the plot or characters. The film lacked some stuff (particular losers suffered from a lack of screen time, see next point) Maybe this sounds odd considering IT has such a long runtime, but I got the impression they struggled with actually narrowing it down to that time. They definitely cut a few scenes, one pretty important one that was seen in multiple trailers (I was disappointed to see it go and I’m definitely not gonna be the only one). There was one sequence where it suddenly jumped to a different person nearby and I don’t know whether they cut a scene in between or edited it poorly but I still don’t know how they got there or what they were doing or where they actually were? It’s hard to explain without spoiling but yeah, that scene confused me

- Stan and Mike, particularly Mike, definitely didn’t get enough screen time. Stan probably had more actual screen time then Ben but Ben just felt more present, since he had more importance in the story and an important relationship with Bev. Stan was one of the original 4 losers but he had the least dialogue out of all of them and its a shame, Wyatt is really talented and I would have liked to have seen more. I can tell Stan was the victim of a few cut scenes. I also feel pretty sorry for poor Chosen as Mike, who was under-utilized and just…. joined the losers. There was no scene of him getting to know them, no bonding scene for the whole seven. He just joined the Losers and went with them to kill IT. He did have his own character arch, which I enjoyed but he still had the least screen time, which is unfortunate, especially considering how important he is in the sequel

- As for the horror, I wasn’t scared during the trailers and I wasn’t scared during the film (horror films just never feel real enough to genuinely scare me) The audience members did react to the film positively, to the jokes and to the scares. Personally, I thought the horror was a little lazy because (KIND OF SPOILER) nearly every scare was a jump-scare. It was effective but I guess I just expected more. My favourite scary scenes included the first group trip to Neibolt Trip (probably another one of my favourite overall scenes) and the projector scene

- As for the couples, I’m trying not to be biased here but I think people who exclusively ship Bill/Bev after the trailers might just be swayed by Benverly who have some brilliant scenes, their dynamic is great and I can think of one small, hilarious moment they shared which really stood out. They didn’t have any moments in the trailer but they had plenty in the film. A combination of the two really talented actors and a great dynamic made it the superior couple in my mind (then again, I always preferred it to Bill/Bev. To be fair, they had a good dynamic and Jaeden is obviously also very talented! I’m not a fan of the love triangle in media but I could stomach this one.

As for my other IT ship, Reddie did not disappoint. The banter that we saw in the MTV grey water scene was a gift that kept on giving. We also saw a couple moments which showed the genuine closeness between them (one adorable shot made me want to write a fluffy AU immediately, certain scenes in Neibolt Street made me feel very angsty). I don’t mean to overhype this, they definitely aren’t ‘canon’ and I don’t believe their scenes become so overt it nears queerbaiting, just a well written dynamic which is pretty damn shippable. Also Richie/Bill and Richie/Stan shippers will have some moments to enjoy!

- The movie strays from the book quite a lot, I personally didn’t mind but if you’re a book purist then prepare yourself

- I know I did mention a few negative things but overall I really enjoyed the film! I recommend it completely, I had a great time and I can’t wait for everyone else to see it

Halloween Night | Bill Denbrough X Reader

English isn’t my first language, so please excuse any mistakes.

Characters: Bill/fem!reader. Richie, Eddie, Stan, Mike, Beverly and Ben are mentioned.

Word Count: 1644 words.

Bill Denbrough was nervous. Actually, nervous was an understatement, Bill was freaking out. Earlier that month, he and his friends had talked about doing something together on Halloween, something that didn’t involve asking for candy around. They soon came to the conclusion that watching some horror movies together was a good idea and Bill’s house had been chosen as the most comfortable place for them to hang out.

So he got some movies and bought food - lots of food - so they could have a good night. But when it was only fifteen minutes to the hour that his friends said they would arrive, his phone rang.

It was Eddie, telling him he couldn’t go because his mother hadn’t let him. Bill got it, Eddie’s mother could be a bit too much sometimes, but he’d felt, somehow, that something wasn’t right about that, but he shrug it off. And then the other calls came. After that, Mike, Bev, Stan and Ben also called him, and, this time, Bill knew that the excuses were lies, he just didn’t know why they were doing it. Until Richie called him, clearly saying he wouldn’t go so “Bill could have some time alone with his girl”.

And that’s when he started to freak out. Bill had liked (Y/N) “his girl” (Y/L/N), but he’d never told her that. Although she was a good friend of his and the other losers, he couldn’t remember a single time that the two of them had been alone together. But he didn’t have much time to worry about what that night would be like and if he could keep up a conversation with her without much stuttering for being nervous - thank God she was going there to watch movies - because soon he heard the bell ring.

Bill felt his nervousness increase, checking once more the living room before heading for the door. (Y/N) was there with a bowl in her hands and a small smile on her face, which made it impossible for him not to smile back.

“Hey (Y/N).”

“I brought some candy.” she said excitedly, raising the bowl slightly before Bill moved aside to make room for her to enter. “Has anyone else arrived?” she asked as she entered the house.

He glanced nervously at her after closing the door. “Th-they are n-not co-cuh-coming.”

(Y/N) raised an eyebrow. “None of them?” he shook his head, making the girl nod slowly before smiling. “More food for us then.”

“I bo-bought lots of food.” he commented as he walked into the living room. “Like, lo-lots of it.”

“That’s okay. I’m a hungry girl.” she shrugged, seeming not to care about that, but was surprised to see how much food was there, her eyes widening slightly. "Wow, you weren’t kidding.”

Bill laughed at the expression on her face. “I tuh-told you.”

“Well, I’m going to eat that anyway.” the girl’s smile widened.

(Y/N) sat on the floor, her back resting on the couch while she was already taking some of the snacks to eat. She clapped her hands excitedly when she saw Bill starting the movie, making the boy grin at her.

The boy had a few seconds to decide where to sit as he walked to the girl. Should he sit far away from her? No, that would seem rude. He also couldn’t sit so close to her, right? It might make her uncomfortable. What was the acceptable distance for him to sit from her?

In the end, he just felt his legs leading him to a spot on the floor not so close to her, but also not so far, and sat there. Bill took a glance at her, relieved to see that she didn’t seem bothered, just paying attention to the popcorn she ate. He nodded to himself before looking at the screen, watching the movie begin.

The room was completely silent for the first half hour and it really bothered Bill, the mood was just awkward. If Richie had been there’d probably have made a comment about the movie that would have made everyone laugh. As if she’d heard that thought in his head, (Y/N) laughed at the death of one of the characters.

“Idiots.” she said quietly.

“He to-totally could have av-voided that.” he said back, making (Y/N) laugh.

After that, the mood between them got better and, sometimes, halfway through the movie, they commented on funny scenes - which weren’t even supposed to be funny.

But soon, even with the dumb deaths, the movie had started to get more and more tense, which made Bill a bit more tense as well. He imagined that (Y/N) was feeling that way too, since she had started to lean slightly toward him, seeming to do that without realizing, since he noticed that her eyes were totally focused on the film.

The girl jumped as the monster suddenly appeared on the screen, which made him smile a little before feeling a nervousness hit him. Thoughts began to go through his head, thoughts of things he could do at that moment, in that situation.

(Y/N) looked clearly frightened and all he wanted was to be one of those cliche boys and put his arm around her shoulders, bring her closer to him, hold her in his arms and assure her that he would keep her safe. Just the thought of doing so made him feel butterflies in his stomach. She was right next to him, he could do that at any moment, but he didn’t have enough courage to do it.

Bill turned his attention to the movie, trying to catch up what he had lost while he looked at her. A few minutes passed and he thought he was understanding what was happening again when a sudden jump scare happened and he felt (Y/N)’s hand abruptly grip his.

He felt his cheeks heating up quickly and looked discreetly at her before looking back at the screen. He could tell that she didn’t mean to have done that as she soon stopped gripping his hand. (Y/N) murmured a “sorry” and was about to take her hand away when he - with courage he didn’t know he had - held her hand.

Bill, however, didn’t dare look at her reaction, just kept staring at the screen, feeling his heart beating a little faster. All he knew was that she hadn’t tried to take her hand away from him and didn’t say anything, did that mean she was okay with it? He risked looking at her, seeing that she was looking at the movie as before, but wasn’t paying that much attention to what was happening on the screen. Bill suppressed a smile, returning to watch, enjoying the feel of her soft hand in his sweaty one.

The boy saw the girl scoot closer to him before he felt her lying her head on his shoulder. His heart was beating so fast that he feared she could feel it - what she, in fact, could. Bill took a nervous deep breath before laying his head on hers, feeling the girl squeeze his hand lightly, which made him smile.

It was the first time they had done this and Bill already loved the feeling of having her so close to him. If he wasn’t paying much attention in the movie before, now he wasn’t paying any, his attention totally focused on the girl at his side. He couldn’t help but get excited, did that mean she liked him back? He really hoped so.

He looked down at their hands, surprised that he had never noticed that they fit perfectly together. Bill let out a contented sigh before beginning to lightly stroke the back of her hand with his thumb. Though he couldn’t see, (Y/N) had smiled widely at that.

The girl lightly raised her head, causing him to take his head off of hers. Her eyes met his, and she could see in them what she had always expected to see in them, affection and love. She hoped he could see the same in her eyes, for that was exactly what she felt. Fortunately, he did see it and his heart melted at the sight of it. With the same unknown courage he had to hold her hand, Bill leaned toward her, seeing her lean too before closing his eyes.

The boy had thought his heart would burst with happiness as their lips touched. He felt her hand let go of his, placing it on his cheek; Bill put his hand on her arm, caressing it. It was just a short and innocent kiss, but it was much more meaningful than it would seem for anyone else. It was their own quiet way to share their feelings for each other.

They slowly pulled away, and Bill stayed a few more seconds with his eyes closed. When he opened them again, he saw (Y/N) looking lovingly at him, which made a smile – probably a silly one - appear on his lips.

“I’m glad no one else came.” she said.

“Me too.” he laughed.

(Y/N) laughed as well before she lay on him, this time resting her head on his chest. Bill hesitated for a moment before putting his arm around her shoulders, holding her as he had imagined many times before. How could that be so good? He caught himself smiling before saying what he had waited for so long to say. “I lo-love you.”

Bill felt (Y/N)’s arms wrap around his torso. “I love you too.”

The boy closed his eyes momentarily as he heard those words come out of her mouth, his smile widening on his face. How long had he dreamed of hearing that, of feeling loved by her, of making her feel loved. That was Halloween, and many should be only caring about candies and scares, but all the two cared about on that night was with each other.

Top 20 Favorite Films of 2015

Just as the title says! I saw way more films this year than last year so obviously it was a lot harder picking favorites. I almost decided to increase the list to 25 but eventually opted against it. Also this list is going by 2015 USA release dates or whatever I happened to see at a festival in 2015. Before I start the countdown here are a few films I really loved that didn’t quite make the cut.

Honorable mentions: The Tribe; Phoenix; Tag; Magic Mike XXL; Nasty Baby; Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter; White God; Tangerine; Heaven Knows What; In Jackson Heights

But anyway, here is the list of my favorite films of 2015 with a few, simple words on each.

20. The Diary of a Teenage Girl (dir. Marielle Heller)

As John Waters said in his top of the year list, this is a film that deals with sex between teens and adults that manages not to be creepy or unintelligent. I always hate when I’m watching films about sex and the actual sex is sugar coated or portrayed in a prudish manner. Thankfully, it’s not only incredibly frank about its subject matter, it’s also incredibly heartfelt (in part from the fantastic lead performance of Bel Powley). I went into this expecting another typical American indie comedy and instead got something incredibly funny, sweet and actually kind of edgy. 

19. Goodnight Mommy (dir. Veronika Franz, Severin Fiala)

When both my girlfriend and I were able to figure out the twist of this horror mystery film about halfway through its running time, neither of us expected to enjoy it nearly as much as we did… but by the time it ended we were floored. In a strange way, knowing the twist only added to the last incredibly disturbing, unpredictable and horrifying third of the film. And in many ways it made it only scarier, so much so that I wonder if it was intentional that we were able to figure it out? Regardless, there were gasps and screams in the theater and they definitely weren’t unwarranted. This film about two young boys who question their unrecognizable mother’s true identity gets pretty damn freaky. 

18. Tokyo Tribe (dir. Sion Sono)

Sion Sono is one of our greatest living filmmakers. So when I say a Sono film isn’t among his best work, you can still count on it being a hundred times more interesting than most people’s entire body of work. In this case, Sono crafted an insane, sloppy, brilliant and totally hysterical rap battle musical. The rapping itself isn’t all that great but I could care less. This is a blast from start to finish! Shot in a floating, god-like perspective we move from scene to scene as the film only builds in insanity, vulgarity and implausibility. But perhaps the best aspect of Tokyo Tribe is when the true intentions of its villain are revealed. I won’t spoil it here, but I always love films with high stakes (in this case warring gang tribes) which arise from something totally insignificant, as it only makes it more ridiculous. Far from perfect, but one of the most fun film experiences I had this year.

17. The Mend (dir. John Magary)

Definitely among the more underrated films on the list, this dry, (extremely) dark comedy explores something that I am personally fascinated with and tend to make films about myself: failed men. The Mend centers on two brothers who initially appear like polar opposites but are eventually both uncovered as pathetic, selfish and deeply angry individuals. Neither of them are very likeable but there are aspects of them that are vey relatable (in a scary way). Although I did frequently laugh during this film, most of the humor was so cringe-worthy and uncomfortable I wasn’t able to make a peep. It’s also incredibly well crafted, well paced and consistently manages to be visually interesting. 

16.  Mustang (dir. Deniz Gamze Ergüven)

What an absolutely phenomenal debut feature! Despite some big flaws (all the girls kind of blend together at the beginning of the film) I was so moved by this film I forgave all its problems. Mustang is about a group of sisters in Turkey whose home starts turning into a sort of prison as they are forbidden from interacting with the outside world for fear that they might ruin themselves before marriage. It manages to be inspiring without being sappy, and political without being in-your-face. The emotions of the film totally snuck up on me, and sure enough before the credits started I was tearing up. This is a fantastic feminist work of art that of course reflects the current cultural climate of Turkey but is also very universal. 

15. Anomalisa (dir. Charlie Kaufman, Duke Johnson)

Charlie Kaufman needs to be given every possible resource he needs so that he can make as many films as possible before he dies. The fact that he’s only directed 2 films is an absolute crime. Perhaps this isn’t as moving or as ambitious as Synecdoche, New York but it’s not trying to be. It’s a smaller, more intimate film that revolves around a motivational speaker who meets a woman in a hotel who seems to breath new life into him. Anomalisa is a stop motion film and it actually incorporates the puppetry of the main character into his breakdowns and fantasies. It’s a deeply sad film but one that abstains from being cynical. It also has the best sex scene of the year. Go figure. 

14. Taxi (dir. Jafar Panahi)

Iranian director Jafar Panahi was banned from filmmaking in his home country in 2010. Since then he’s made 3 feature films. Taxi is not only his best film under the ban, it’s also one of Panahi’s best films in general. The entire movie takes place inside a taxi cab as Mr. Panahi himself drives, picks up passengers, meets up with old friends and watches as his niece makes a film herself for a class project. It wasn’t until after the film ended that I realized the entire thing was staged. Taxi serves both as a meta discussion on the kind of society that would lock up and censor one of its best filmmakers (the ending of this film is heartbreaking given Panahi’s situation) as well as an incredibly sweet and intimate portrait of the people of modern Iran, the kind you won’t see in any western media outlets. The fact that this film exists at all is stunning, but the fact that it’s as good and engaging as it is is even more stunning. 

13. The World of Kanako (dir. Tetsuya Nakashima)

Without a doubt the most vile, repulsive, disturbing and transgressive film on this list, The World of Kanako is a mad whirlwind of violence and mayhem that doesn’t slow down once for the length of its two hour running time. We follow an ex-detective as he searches for his daughter and starts slowly falling down the rabbit hole of the pitch black world she inhabits. The editing is slick and quick as we are constantly jumping between 3 different timelines, trying to piece together just what happened to Kanako. What’s revealed is beyond perverse, as even our protagonist is shown to be as disgusting and amoral as any of the villains he’s chasing. Cinematically explosive (every trick in the book is pulled out in this film) and totally degenerate, I couldn’t help but get sucked into one of the most fascinating and exhausting films of the year. 

12. Victoria (dir. Sebastian Schipper)

At 138 minutes, Victoria is the longest single shot narrative film ever made. One might be worried that this gimmick would be distracting to everything else in the movie, but it isn’t.  The characters and their performances make the journey incredibly real and emotional (Laia Costa as Victoria was my favorite performance of 2015) . There were times where I even forgot that I was watching something done in one take. I don’t wanna give away too much about the plot because going in completely ignorant will probably lead to a much better viewing experience. I will say that this is the kind of naturalistic filmmaking I really admire. One where extraordinary events take place, but not a single moment feels untruthful. 

11. The Revenant (dir. Alejandro González Iñárritu)

As much as I really enjoyed Birdman, I didn’t quite think it was on par with some of Iñárritu’s best previous work (Biutiful and Babel are two favs of mine). However, The Revenant is without question one of his strongest and most impactful films. Teaming up a second time with Emmanuel Lubezki (arguably the greatest cinematographer currently working), together they crafted an absolute visual masterwork. The entire film could have have been silent and the story would have been as clear as day. DeCaprio also delivers the best performance of his career, achieving an almost Mifune-level over-the-top-ness that is constantly intense but never becomes cheesy. Out of all the films on this list, this one begs to be seen on a big screen. It’s a true spectacle. 

10. The Look of Silence (dir. Joshua Oppenheimer)

Oppenheimer’s follow-up to his masterful The Act of Killing is just as brilliant and perhaps even more powerful. Once again focusing on the Indonesian genocide of 1965, but instead from the point of view of a victim’s family. The brother of a murdered “communist” confronts all the men directly or indirectly responsible for his brother’s death. A beautiful but haunting film that’s extremely difficult to shake off once you’ve seen it. 

9. The Forbidden Room (dir. Guy Maddin. co-dir. Evan Johnson) 

A solid quarter of the audience I saw this with walked out of it. Maddin is a true cinematic madman, willing to try and do absolutely anything in his films. It would be kind of pointless to try to describe this movie because there are a million stories in it and about a billion things that happen in it. A lumberjack ends up in a submarine, bananas come alive and tell a story, a man becomes so obsessed with butts that he has parts of his brain removed, skeletons force a lover to don a poison suit, a mustache has a dream… etc. etc. etc. All shown through grainy, kaleidoscope-esque images. Equally hilarious, destructive and insane, this is probably one of the strangest films I’ve ever seen. It’s bizarre even by Maddin’s standards. 

8. Mad Max: Fury Road (dir. George Miller)

I mean, what is left to say about this one? This film seems to be on absolutely everyone’s “best of” list this year (and if it’s not I’m assuming that person either hasn’t seen it or is insane). It’s a masterpiece of the action genre. I’m not going to say much else about this one because if you have yet to see it, stop reading and go watch it. 

7. It Follows (dir. David Robert Mitchell)

This film has had me looking over my shoulder when I’m walking alone ever since I saw it. I’m one of those people who gets really scared by good horror. And man, this scared me like no other film I’ve seen recently. I’ve only just started watching more horror films (thanks to my girlfriend, who’s much more of a buff in the genre than I am) and this film definitely stands out as one of the best and most original American horror films in current memory. The concept of people -whom only you can see- following you no matter where you are and who are intent on killing you is terrifying enough, and thankfully this film is so well made that it truly is as scary as it sounds. 

6. World of Tomorrow (dir. Don Hertzfeldt)

The only short film I even considered to be on this list. Hertzfeldt has created yet another hilarious, emotional, and supremely intelligent film. He manages to pack more ideas into a single scene than many films can muster in their entire running times. A little girl is greeted by a 3rd generation clone of herself and is brought to the future, where she is shown and taught many extremely significant things… all at an age too young to fully grasp the information she’s given. By the end of this 17 minute journey, I was weeping. 

5. Wild Tales (dir. Damián Szifrón)

The opening scene of Wild Tales is the closest thing to Buñuel-style absurdity I’ve ever seen in a modern film. And the rest of the film is pretty great too! This dark comedic anthology film from Argentina really took me by surprise. It’s comprised of six unrelated stories that all deal with revenge taken to its most extreme, logical conclusion. I laughed so hard during this movie that the couple sitting in front of me in the theater moved seats. It’s extremely dark, at times absolutely absurd, beautifully shot and has a lot of fantastic social commentary that is very universal. One particular story about a man getting his car consistently towed is almost too relatable. 

4. The Lobster (dir. Yorgos Lanthimos)

I’ve been a committed fan of Yorgos Lanthimos since Dogtooth, so when I heard the basic concept for The Lobster a year or two ago I’ve been eagerly anticipating it. Having finally seen it, I can safely say that it’s definitely Yorgos Lanthimos’s best film yet. The story, revolving around a hotel where single people are forcibly sent in order to find a new mate (and are turned into animals if they don’t), is one of the best films about how completely ridiculous relationships can be. The whole movie is a brilliant breakdown of what makes something normal and how arbitrary the rules in our society often are. It’s a hilarious, beautifully made film and has the best overall acting of 2015. 

3. The Hateful Eight (dir. Quentin Tarantino) 

What’s already turning out to be Tarantino’s most divisive film also turned out to be one of my favorites by him, if not my absolute favorite (a 2nd viewing will tell). Yes, the 70mm roadshow version made the screening really special (complete with an intermission and overture) but aside all hype surrounding the format, this is one of the few times I’ve felt like Tarantino was commenting on something other than filmmaking (or past films) itself. The Hateful Eight deals with issues of misogyny, racism, the death of the American dream and how all of those things fit into the myth of the American west and how that relates to our current culture. Also, the fact that it’s as engaging as it is for a 3 hour movie that takes place mostly in one location and only has despicable characters is a miracle. I personally think this is Tarantino’s smartest, most subversive and most mature film yet. 

2. TIE 

Mommy (dir. Xavier Dolan)

Xavier Dolan knows how to craft classy melodramas. The emotions the characters go through in Mommy are massive and almost become over the top. But instead they are very real and very felt in the audience when watching it… at least for me they were! I cried and cried during this movie. It’s the most emotional experience I had during any film from 2015. However it’s not just beautiful and heartbreaking, it’s also a marvel of filmmaking, using a totally unique 1:1 aspect ratio (one that’s not reflected in the still I chose), featuring incredibly sincere uses of pop songs, and having some of the best cinematography of the year. 

AND

A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence (dir. Roy Andersson)

2015 seemed to be a great year for absurdist comedies! Roy Andersson is one of our best living filmmakers and every film he makes is an absolute treasure. Pigeon is no exception. Meticulously crafted for years on end, Andersson can spend up to 5 weeks just creating a single shot (everything in Pigeon is shot on a soundstage as well, so the shots can look exactly as Andersson likes them to look). Andersson is also a champion against outdated concepts of traditional story structure, with his last 3 films focusing more on moments and situations rather than arcs or characters (although Pigeon is the most character driven of the trilogy, but not by much). This film is also hysterically funny, filled with macabre, absurd and surreal moments. While the other two films in his trilogy may have asked “Where are we now” this one asks “What do we do now?” The answer (if he even has one) isn’t always pretty, but it’s almost always funny. 

1. Entertainment (dir. Rick Alverson)

Entertainment takes Gregg Turkington’s infamous “Neil Hamburger” character (an aggressive, intentionally terrible meta stand up comedian he’s played since the 90s) and poses the question “What if he were a real person?” The result is one of the strangest, most horrifying and most cinematic films of the year. This film entered a very dark part of my consciousness and stayed there. We follow “the comedian” as he travels from shitty gig to shitty gig playing to audiences that couldn’t care less (or sometimes are even violent). He occasionally makes phone calls to a daughter we’re not even sure is real, he visits relatives he has nothing in common with and he takes awful tours of the desert to kill time between shows. It unfolds its themes and story (if you even wanna call it a story) visually, utilizing gorgeous widescreen cinematography that takes advantage of its Mojave desert landscapes. Entertainment is an uncompromising character study of what it means to be “entertainers”, the mask they use versus their inward emotions and the hollowness that can accompany artists (especially unsuccessful ones). The film starts slowly moving into the totally surreal, and by the end we don’t even know what’s reality and what’s not. This is the most unsettling film I’ve seen all year. It truly got under my skin and as painful as it can be, it’s a trip worth taking. Even if the destination of said trip is the center of hell. 

Looking at you (Part Eleven)

Lots of healing in this Chapter. Tony is finally on the upswing of things, and the team is pulling back together.

This is the second to last update, so catch up on Chapters 1-10 HERE so you don’t miss anything before chapter twelve!

Enjoy :)
*************************************
It seemed like forever, but things slid back into a semblance of normal at the compound.

The once a week nights at the hotel helped a lot.

Sometimes Tony held tight to the cool metal arm, shaking, screaming his pleasure into the dark as Bucky took him apart slowly, carefully, expertly. Other times the soldier was the one shuddering, groaning, crying out as he came with Tony thrusting deep inside him. And then some nights they would just lay together and talk about their days, with the lights off and the covers pulled tight around their shoulders and their foreheads touching, their hands roaming gently all over each other.

But no matter what they did, it all helped.

Tony still jumped if someone startled him, was still much quieter than he used to be, but he wasn’t running from the room every time the team argued. He didn’t flinch away when Steve spoke to him. The lab had music playing again, even if it was much softer than it had ever been before.

When Natasha sat next to him on the couch now, Tony didn’t automatically get up and leave. He could sit with her to close to half an hour as long she didn’t expect too much conversation.

Sam made a point to come and eat breakfast with Tony every morning, even if Tony was only having juice, and they could talk over breakfast for several minutes before Tony started feeling uncomfortable and wanted to leave.

Wanda had started doing things like levitating items over to him, and flicking a door open any time Tony needed it, He’d nearly fallen over in fright the first time his office door shot open and banged against the wall to let him out, but he had managed to smile at her anyway, and she had absolutely lit up, thrilled to be doing something for him.

Vision flitted in and out, as he usually did, ending his day with a visit to Tony’s lab to wish him goodnight, and to reassure Tony that he was there if he ever wanted to talk. Tony had stopped grimacing every time Vision spoke, and the (being?) man took that as a personal victory.

Eventually, even movie nights started again. The team certainly didn’t dogpile on the couch like they used to, and Tony still sat closest to the door, but he smiled along with the comedies, and discussed plot points during the dramas, and didn’t leave before the movie ended, content to stay with the team until everyone was heading to bed.

It wasn’t perfect.
But it was better.
And he hadn’t had a panic attack in weeks.

It becomes an expectancy, without Roman meaning it to be. Sure, they’d started with Prisoner of Azkaban, but he honestly hadn’t expected Virgil to want to continue watching them. So, when the credits started rolling, and Virgil turned to him and asked, “Well… Goblet of Fire, then? Or do you want to go back and do them in order from the beginning?”, Roman had to stop himself from gaping. 

He’d chosen Goblet of Fire, and now, Roman claps a hand to his forehead as they watch the students from Beauxbatons enter.

“We never considered us getting put into other schools, Virgil! Damn it, that would’ve been fun.”

Virgil grins. “Short decision for you, then. You’re definitely from Beauxbatons, look, they’ve even got blue Disney butterflies.”

“That’s not even a thing.”

“It is, now, I just made it up.”

“And you’re obviously from Durmstrang.”

Virgil scoffs, and shoves Roman so he almost falls off the couch. “You’re literally only saying that because they’re wearing black.”

“They have your aesthetic, my friend… say, do you think Muggleborns would spread the word about Hot Topic?”

“Oh, shut up.”

But there’s no anger in Virgil’s words, and Roman delights in it, that they can banter without either one of them being hurt. 

For a while, they just watch, Virgil actually being the one who’s the most talkative. Roman listens intently as they watch Harry battle merfolk in the Lake, and Virgil explains how jump-scares work, even on repeated viewings. 

And, when Do The Hippogriff plays full blast, Roman really does fall off the couch, howling with laughter. 

“Quick, quick, pause it!” Roman says breathlessly, and he points at the screen, arms flailing. “Look, it’s you!”

Virgil squints, and then snorts. “You made me pause it for that?

“But, why, it’s perfect, they’re even wearing your eyeshadow!”

Virgil presses play, but his sarcastic resolve has broken- Roman can hear him giggling even above the music. “I don’t dance like that at all.”

“Aha! You’re implying you sing like that, then.”

“For crying out loud, Roman…”

But, when they reach the near end of the Triwizard Tournament, Virgil suddenly gets very quiet. The only thing he says is a whispered, “Stupid,” as Harry and Cedric grab the cup. And then, again, as Cedric refuses to leave Harry: “Stupid.”

Roman raises his eyebrows. “You know, most would call that brave.”

Virgil swallows. “Yeah. Bravely stupid.”

When the Killing Curse hits Cedric, Roman is surprised to see Virgil actually shiver. Yes, it’s an upsetting scene, but he knows for a fact Virgil has seen movies with a much higher scare factor than this. 

Virgil catches his eye. “Sorry.” He clears his throat. “Just… Patton was right. He- well. He’s a lot like…”

He trails off, and Roman glances back between the screen and Virgil, oddly touched. He can’t think of the right thing to say. Eventually, he decides on: “Hey, I already told you… I’m not a Hufflepuff.”

He means it as a comfort, and Virgil thankfully seems to take it as such. He curls up next to him and laughs, sounding a little shaky.

“Yeah, I know. That’s- that’s good.”

Roman doesn’t remember falling asleep. The last he can properly remember is still being taken aback at Virgil’s reaction to Cedric, and then suddenly, he’s being jolted awake by sudden movement. He groans, opening his eyes to see Virgil standing upright, shoulders high and tense. 

“Do you want some water?” Virgil asks. His voice is high pitched and overly loud. 

“Wha- no! Did you really wake me up for-” Roman blinks, only just noticing that the TV is still playing, now on Order of The Phoenix. “Oh. I’ll pause it for you, if you want a drink.”

Virgil’s mouth opens and re-opens. “That- that’s not what I-ugh. Fine.”

He leaves, and Roman pauses the movie. As he starts to wake up properly, he realises that maybe… maybe Virgil just wanted an out. An easy way to stop watching the movie. But… he had fallen asleep, hadn’t he, so Virgil could have stopped before then, so why…

Roman blinks and stares at the screen. It must have something to do with a particular scene. He tries to think, but he can’t draw a proper connection, still too tired, and Virgil is suddenly back, holding a glass of water with the air of someone being condemned.

He sits next to Roman, back ramrod straight.

And Roman can’t think of an excuse to not watch the movie without possibly embarrassing Virgil. He throws caution to the wind, and presses play. He’ll find out soon enough, anyway. 

They’re thrown back into The Department of Mysteries, and Roman quickly plays catch-up: okay, Sirius’s death is over, isn’t that the worst part done? So why-

Harry doubles over, and Roman feels like a lightbulb just turned on. It’s the scene where Harry gets possessed by Voldemort. It’s probably one of his favourites, just artistically speaking, but now he doesn’t care for that at all. The soundtrack builds as Voldemort chillingly whispers, “So weak… so vulnerable. Look at me.”

Beside him, Virgil actually flinches. He’s set his glass of water aside, one hand reaching up to cover his mouth.

“Virgil,” Roman says hoarsely. He still doesn’t quite understand, but everything within him is screaming to help. “We can turn it off.” 

But Virgil shakes his head, and he exhales shallowly, as the violins swell, and then, Ron and Hermione are there, and Harry’s thoughts are filled with their happy memories-

And there are unmistakable tears on Virgil’s face, and Roman has had enough. He reaches out and turns off the TV. Virgil turns away from him, and he tries to wipe his tears away, as if it’s a guilty act he should hide.

“Oh, Virgil,” Roman says, and he knows that isn’t enough, but it’s all he can think of.

“S-sorry.” Virgil breathes in and out for a few moments, then he finally faces Roman again. “It’s… that bit. It’s- it’s just-”

Roman closes his eyes, and thinks of every time he himself has cried at a move, and the reason why. His heart breaks at the answer.

“Relatable?” he tries, opening his eyes.

Virgil lip quivers as if he might cry again. He just nods. 

Roman is left reeling. He thinks of the power of that scene, the meaning behind it, of love and friendship, and the look Harry gave when remembering his friends, and the hope in the sound of Hermione’s laugh, and Roman tries to get into Virgil’s perspective, and replaces every single memory with all of them and…

He does the one thing he can think of that is right. He hugs Virgil, a flare of protectiveness in his chest, and he says, “Virgil. You’re many things, and weak isn’t one of them.”

He feels one of his shoulders shake as Virgil lets out a choked laugh against it. “Let’s watch something lighter, for a bit. That OK?”

Roman hugs him tighter. “Of course. Yes. Let’s.”

Arranged Marriage (Part 1)

[ Drama AU ]

“Marriage!” You shouted at the top of your lungs. “You’re going to sacrifice my happiness for yours? I mean seriously” you scoffed. “Marrying your one and only daughter for money. It’s like I’m in a drama, a poorly written one at that.”

Your parents looked at you with concern. They would be bankrupt by the end of the year if they don’t gain the backing of a strong stockholder soon. Now that they found one they needed you in order for the deal to go through.
