all about adam

okay but gansey, blue, ronan and adam all get tattoos of the word “remembered” in honour of noah but they all add their own touch to it:

gansey’s looks like it was written out on an old typewriter. a small crown resting on top of the R with a few tiny stars scattered around it. ronan’s is in a simple bold font, jet black raven feathers falling around the word almost as if they were falling like leaves off a tree. blue’s is written in her own handwriting that she got the tattoo artist to copy, a whirlwind of bright blue lillies surrounding it. adam’s is also written in a simple font, yet it has branches and leaves growing off of the word, resembling the trees found in cabeswater.

because they may be the king, the greywaren, the mirror and the magician, but noah was a part of all of them, a part of all of their hearts. and he’ll always be remembered.

Happy Birthday @akaclairetemple!!! I love you and i’m sorry about the last cap

consider: Adam Parrish goes to college, eventually learns how to stop giving a single heck, becomes good buddies with the roommate, finds some chill, majors in something actually enjoyable regardless of what it might mean career-wise, gets a whole bunch of ear piercings, decides the gender binary is for squares, and unintentionally becomes the local campus witch (not necessarily in that order)

I…love this whole scene so much, I love them so much, I love this whole movie so much

this is part of a featurette that can be found HERE! Thank you kohl’s (randomly??) giving some good footage of the ending <3

fibbonocci  asked:

okay so hear me out... ronan making the most disgusting smoothie ever made, like, meatballs basil yogurt banana cocoa powder etc. and giving it to gansey without telling him what it is, but bc gansey is so focused on his work he drinks it no question and actually enjoys it, when he finishes it he asks ronan for the recipe so he can make it again. ronan throws up a little in his mouth.

IM SCREAMING. This content is exactly why I come on this hecking site.

But imagine this turns into a game with the Gangsey. 

Ronan grabs Noah and returns to the kitchen and they get to work. They take crackers and put them on a plate and cover them in ketchup. They add cumin, chocolate syrup, and salsa. When Ronan goes back out to the main room, Gansey is sitting so close to his computer that his nose is almost touching the screen. Ronan doesn’t say anything and puts the crackers down. Gansey mumbles a simple “thank you” before eating it while Noah and Ronan watch him. 

Gansey doesn’t even fucking flinch.

you know when u wanna talk about ur fav characters but all you can do is scream

A friend once asked me “Why didn’t Adam have all his makeup from the ball when he turned back into the prince?”

She accented it with the fact that the musicians still had their makeup on when they transformed back, too.  Which in hindsight was a very good point–everyone else was still dressed up for the ball when they turned back, and I have thought hard about my answer to the question…though it may be very long.  This is the short answer: They all had their shining moments.  Allow me to explain.


Adam

  • It was my post on the B-roll that helped me.  I remember in that post that I said I couldn’t recognize Dan Stevens because of all the makeup he was wearing.  They made the prince completely unrecognizable to the audience.  His face was hidden behind a mask of cruel beauty and disdain.  I’m pretty sure that if I hadn’t seen the B-roll beforehand, I wouldn’t have recognized him when I went to see the movie for the first time.  And there were instances, when the Beast and Belle were talking, that I saw the shadow of Dan’s face on the Beast’s.  But it was when the Beast turned into the Prince, that moment when he turned around and faced Belle (his expression, oh my gosh…)  That was the moment when we, the audience, really saw him for the first time, the moment when we saw the man that had been hiding, whether it was beneath fur or a wig and some makeup.  He wasn’t that person anymore, he was new, reborn, free.  We saw his skin, his hair, his eyes that stood on their own, needing no kind of enhancement to look beautiful.  This was his shining moment.  If he had that makeup on when he transformed back, it would 1) ruin the scene and 2) hint that there might still be some cruelty hiding within him.  But Belle has torn that part away from him and destroyed it.

Garderobe and Cadenza

  • Their shining moment was the prologue.  No need to go through the movie and try to find that one; it’s far too obvious.  They’re performers, and this is a ball.  One sings, one plays, the spotlight is on them and they are amazing.  I’m pretty sure that they’re wearing makeup because the prince said this was to be something of a masquerade ball (it would look a little strange if he was the only one in makeup, right?  There had to be some sort of theme; it’s a party).  Nevertheless, that was how we saw them, in the lights, with the awesome outfits and the awesome talents.  So they kept their makeup in the transformation because that was how we remembered them. To us, that’s who they are.

The Staff

  • Because I’m doing a run-down on everyone in the prologue it’s only fair to include these guys.  I remember saying in an ask that aside from the prince, Garderobe and Cadenza are the only main characters whose faces are shown to the audience in the prologue.  I think that the screenwriters wrote it that way because they were saving the reveals for the end scene when they all become human again.  That way we’d see Lumiere, Plumette, Cogsworth, Chapeau, Chip, and Mrs. Potts in a very happy, natural light instead of the somewhat dim light cast over the prologue scene.  They were the optimists, the ones that made this story fun from start to finish, so they should be portrayed as such.  Which meant holding off on their face reveals until the best possible moment.  In that way, Lumiere and Plumette’s kiss is so much more genuine and Mrs. Potts and Chip seem like the perfect mother-son duo, because there’s so much joy in the air.  The transformation scene was their shining moment, and boy, did they shine.

Face Casting: Joel Pimentel as Joseph Kavinsky (thanks anon!!!)

“Dying’s a boring side effect.”

there were a lot of incredible scenes of the raven cycle, but by far the most beautiful was how almost immediately after comprehending Noah’s deadness Ronan actually went for picking him up and throwing him out of a three story building window while Gansey was having a melodramatic think session right outside the door at like 2 in the morning

anonymous asked:

Can you do pynch for the ship thing please <3

YOU BET YOUR SWEET ASS I CAN 

(god FINALLY)

SEND ME A SHIP AND I’LL TELL YOU…

who is more likely to hurt the other?

I mean. Adam doesn’t usually get hurt by ronan so much as he gets annoyed. disappointed. pissed. He never lets ronan’s venom actually get to his veins, he’s too busy telling him how unnecessary the flash of fang is. ronan on the other hand. like. he’s easy to hurt. adam would never in his life want to hurt ronan (it’s his honest to god nightmare) but I think ronan works himself into such a despair at the smallest jealousies and perceived injustices that adam could make one careless comment and ronan would fixate on it

who is emotionally stronger?

ohhhh adam. it’s adam. He’s been dragging so much emotional rubble for so long that he’s built up a tolerance. strong is like The Most adam adjective that I can think of. ronan never had to get to adam’s level of detachment and dissociation bc the first 15 years of his life were gorgeous and easy, and he’s still growing into his protective shell. Adam had to be born in his

who is physically stronger?

it’s ronan tbH he has the upper body strength of a boxer and the broad shoulders of a lynch (but also adam has clever hands and muscular thighs from years of biking everywhere and he can handle himself)

who is more likely to break a bone? 

ouch. They’re both capital R Reckless when they’re together and they have some brutal years under their belts. adam has some poorly set knobbly fingers and ronan has an old snapped clavicle that took forever to heal and constantly bruised knuckles so like. idk. In the future, when adam parrish has escaped from his childhood prison, I’d like to think that they both get ugly minor injuries from doing joyful ramp and dolly and shopping cart type activities only

who knows best what to say to upset the other? 

surprisingly difficult question to answer bc I mean. It’s ronan. but is it? he systematically winds people up and adam is so deeply irritated by him that he straight up walks away, but also adam can be ice cold?? it’s so easy to get to ronan. They both fumble and call each other mean names when they want to compliment each other it’s a big mess

who is most likely to apologize first after an argument? 

holy shit would you believe neither??? the most stubborn humans on this earth!! record holders!! we got some emotional repression folks! hooooo boy

adam never starts arguments for no reason so he’s always thinking it through and coming to the conclusion that he’s in the right?? surprise he ain’t apologizing

meanwhile ronan can’t stop being cruel even though he knows it’s hurting people, it’s this vicious self-protective instinct that hurts so good and so wrong. and then his pride gets in the way once he’s cooled down. but he will come to st agnes on his knees and grab adam’s hand and try to make it clear that he’d step on his own pride on the way to adam’s door

who treats who’s wounds more often? 

sad & unfortunate :(( adam treats ronan’s solely bc ronan doesn’t know how the fuck to treat an injury and also ‘none of them wanted to hurt adam parrish’, so ronan’s got his stupid pointless anger related scrapes and adam’s got his anti-bacterial gel and they are a dream team

who is in constant need of comfort? 

neither of them come out on top here man. They’ve had some shared harrowing experiences, and some separate trauma that they’re trying to tell each other about (if their stories could just stop. sticking. when they try to say them out loud). in v different ways, neither of their families are families. Ronan doesn’t let himself fall asleep, and he doesn’t let himself go through things, and the repression starts to calcify into cruelty like it did right after his father died. adam can’t stop thinking about gansey on the roadside, and he can’t be touched some days, most days. he can’t stop swimming or he’ll die. He can’t keep swimming or he’ll die. The gangsey is a critical support system made of so many weak beams

who gets more jealous? 

are u fucking serious,,, it’s both of them pal. remember when every combination of his friends that didn’t include him made adam like. sick with jealousy. remember when ronan saw gansey talking on the phone with adam and wanted to put his hand through a wall. or when adam brought blue along on their quest and he spouted nasty shit the whole day. they both deeply want each others attention and they don’t seem to realize that they already have it? always?

who’s most likely to walk out on the other? 

ohh god. oh man. oh boy. Here’s the thing. adam’s gonna walk away from ronan, but he’s not gonna walk OUT on him. he’s going to walk away because he’s not on a leash, he’s gonna spread those beautiful fucking self-made wings. And ronan is too!! in his own time he’s gonna build his own spaces that aren’t the barns and he’s going to realize what home means to him and they’re both gonna walk out the door and back but never close it behind them

who will propose? 

a controversial topic! I’m on team adam for this one pals. I was on team ‘adam’s gonna kiss ronan first’ for a while before trk like a FOOL and I realized the error of my ways bc ronan is physical as fuck! and a risk-taker! of course he kissed adam smh. But a proposal? That’s a contract. That’s a speech. That’s a chess move. Ronan wouldn’t corner adam like that. Adam knows how ronan feels and more importantly he knows how HE feels himself, and I think one day ten years into their relationship the practicalities are gonna beckon and he’s gonna look ronan in the back of the head while he’s sleeping and roll over into the curve of his spine and tell him he wants a ring on his finger 

who has the most difficult parents?

omg… fuck off

who initiates hand-holding when they’re out in public? 

tactile bastards! both of them! ronan especially wants adam’s hands…., any which way he can get them. I mean. He will kiss adam’s hands when they’re at dinner at nino’s and he’ll hook their fingers together even for the 20 second walk from the BMW to monmouth’s front door like he LIVES FOR IT (adam feels nervy and exhilarated every time it’s gay)

who comes up for the other all the time? 

i mean they’re always together so they don’t really bring each other up. if they’re not together they’re with gansey/blue/henry or even fox way babes/vancouver crowd etc and those ppl get real tired of it real quick. adam usually keeps his ronan related musings to himself though like he has self-control unlike… R.N.L. himself

who hogs the blankets? 

ronan does tbh adam has never hogged anything in his life and ronan is a shit

who gets more sad? 

an unfair Q, man. They’ve both had a super rough time, especially right post-trk?? those few months are hard. Ronan cries a lot. Adam gets numb and far away a lot. They have a lot to be sad about. (But more to be happy about. They made it. They honestly just stare at each other and laugh breathlessly and touch foreheads and hands and scars and can’t believe their luck)

who is better at cheering the other up? 

I sorta said this with ronsey but I think ronan is THE BEST at doing dumb shit to take his mind off of things. Like all that stuff about making adam quiet and turning off the lists and anxieties in his head so that they can do smth mindless and dangerous? yeah that. memes and songs and poor decisions. depression whom?

who’s the one that playfully slaps the other all the time after they make silly jokes?

this never happens wtf they’re not really ‘playful slappers’ HOWEVER adam will glare at ronan so hard that it probably feels like a slap

who is more streetwise?

it reeeeally depends on your definition of streetwise?? Like if we’re talking survival it’s unquestionably adam. He can fix your car and bandage your wounds and figure out your taxes and make himself invisible and blend his accent into whoever’s around him. He’s wicked sharp and fast on his feet. But i mean. he can’t quite drive stick. and he wouldn’t be caught dead in the sort of underground that ronan ends up in. ronan is streetwise in terms of the actual street, and he knows the most brutal avenues a person can end up on, the real life nightmares that feel closest to the ones in his head. Ronan is smart enough to navigate the chaos, but adam is smart enough to avoid it altogether

who is more wise?

adam. easily. ronan is intelligent and instinctive and talented (or adam wouldn’t get him as well as he does) but adam is a genius and that look behind his eyes….. he’s lived about 1 billion times more than he should’ve by age 19

who’s the shyest? 

neither of them are shy exactly they’re just buried under 9 surface level personalities that you have to crack open with your bare fuckin hands

but if you met either of them in the hallowed halls of aglionby you would think adam was shy and ronan was a rampant fuckwad so based on appearance?? adam. he keeps his head down.

who boasts about the other more? 

as soon as adam is officially his bf ronan takes a ten year long victory lap he’s so embarrassing

who sits on who’s lap?

y’all. we all know ronan sits in adam’s. it’s a fact of life. he probably had a sexy dream about it when he was 17 and took his morning shower in holy water

Progress is so slow, but here are some of the more finished stills from my WIP Raven Cycle animation project I keep mentioning.

TRC

“Ya say ya want everyone to be white except Gansey, so why do you fancast Froy Gutierrez as Adam Parrish?” 

Because my guy Froy is actually half Mexican and is bilingual, like my friend @ihopeyoulikevilepuns (sorry for calling you out but you’ve been not so subtle-y talking about me so) 

anonymous asked:

i honestly need all the headcanons about adam's bi awakening. i imagine him feeling confused when he realizes he's attracted to ronan, and then thinking about what that means since he still thinks blue is hot, and then realizing all the guys he's thought were hot in the past (that model from the magazine, their latin teacher, etc.) and realizing how stupid he's been, lmao. and i wonder what came first, his attraction to ronan or his feelings for him? or maybe around the same time.

ok i got this this morning but i wanted to wait until i was home and had time to properly think about it, so, without further ado, my thoughts on adam’s bi awakening: 

- before ronan, adam really brushed off all the attraction he had to guys just bc?? it wasn’t as present or as strong and it didn’t really register as attraction to him until he looked back on it like ‘oh that’s why i was so impressed with that model from the magazine’ 

- and if you guys haven’t noticed, adam does that thing where he tries to think his way out of his feelings, so, i’m pretty sure that when he started developing feelings for ronan was when he really started to think about his attraction to guys (bc honestly, i think he was probably attracted to ronan the whole time and didn’t start to think of it as attraction until the feelings part was involved) 

- a lot of narratives portray queer people as just ‘knowing’ the whole time. i don’t think that was how it went down with adam. i think he had a lot of moments with ronan where he felt different and when he started to realize how ronan felt about him, it made him question what he was feeling like ‘wait is this weird feelings stuff me reciprocating or is it just… weird’ 

- and i think once he started to think about it he probably did a lot of googling. adam knew he was attracted to blue- it literally says he was attracted to her “like a heart attack”, and who knows whether or not he knew that bisexuality was a thing (which, i didn’t until i met someone who was bi, so it’s really not impossible for someone not to know lol) and i can totally see him taking the kinsey scale test online, putting a ton of thought into each answer when.. really tests don’t help a ton because sexuality is a confusing, fluid thing.. but..

- test: the idea of having sexual intercourse with someone of the same sex is:

Adam: *squints at question* clicks ‘interesting’

- i think he probably spent a lot of time analyzing ronan’s actions and how he felt about those actions (physically and emotionally) until he came to the conclusion that yes, he was attracted to ronan and it wasn’t just a fluke. (see: the ‘ronan wiping his face sweat with his shirt and adam almost walking into a telephone pole bc his abs were so nice’ incident) 

- and i think once he confirmed that he was attracted to ronan, he started to look at the way he felt and had felt about other guys in the past like ‘lol i totally had a crush on that guy in seventh grade but i didn’t really notice it bc i didn’t think it was a crush’ 

- he probably spent a lot more time questioning the romantic feelings than the attraction. sometimes, it takes feeling both to make you really think about it, but i think he spent way, way longer thinking and overthinking his feelings for ronan, because even after ronan kissed him in trk adam was still like ‘what is love.’ the attraction was probably the easier part, because looking back, it was there from the beginning.

some Concepts™ for your consideration because we don’t talk about holster’s piano playing nearly enough
  • he’s actually really good ?? he started taking lessons when he was 6 because his mom read somewhere that learning piano strengthens young children’s brains, helps them socially, gives them self-confidence, etc. 
  • playing piano develops your coordination and spatial intelligence like nobody’s business and maybe it’s in his head but holster swears it helps him on the ice
  • he was offered a piano scholarship to samwell but took the hockey scholarship instead because A) when it came down to it, it was more important to him to continue hockey than piano and B) it paid more
  • he still messes around in the practice rooms sometimes when he has some free time and just wants to be alone for a bit. it’s nice to focus in on the music
  • he gots them Big Hands (not innuendo) so he’s really good at stretches (where you have to play across octaves or large intervals with one hand)
    • this also makes him a faster typer than ransom, much to ransom’s chagrin
  • he loves ragtime but hates jazz
  • in high school he would accompany the school musical every year so showtunes are a big part of his repertoire
  • one time freshman year, ransom walked in on him playing debussy on the piano in the lobby of their dorm and he froze just so he could hear the rest of the piece without holster stopping to talk to him
  • it was always really hard for him to practice growing up because of his ADHD, but he eventually trained himself to do two 15-minute intervals of practice time every day. he can’t do that anymore because of his much busier schedule, but he tries to sneak up to the music building every sunday
  • ransom surprises him with an slightly junky 1964 spinet piano for their 5th anniversary. holster cries and names her mabel and cares for her like a child
    • this leads to a noise complaint one night after he ends up yelling about “fucking liszt and his stupid fucking tremolos”
    • holster controls himself and ransom learns to have waffles at the ready on Liszt Days as a reward for his practicing. for Rachmaninoff Days, he goes all-out and makes a full breakfast-for-dinner feast
  • when he retires from the nhl, holster goes back to taking lessons and starts a youtube channel to keep up with his progress and ?? it gets really popular???
  • piano teachers love it because it helps them encourage their students who are forced into piano but love sports
  • ransom is so proud of his lorge husband and his strong hands and nimble fingers
  • (their kids are also forced into lessons because “IF I HAD TO SUFFER MY WAY THROUGH ‘SCALES, CHORDS, ARPEGGIOS AND CADENCES’ YOU WILL TOO”)

blue is the fiery comeback you thought of five minutes too late. she wants the unattainable, is the desire to be everything everyone is not. the stars, a kiss, a difference in heights or opinions. black hair with jagged ends, dull scissors, too many elbows in the bathroom. matching eyes, matching taste; cutting, expressive, wistful. the wish you hold to every 11:11, the combat boots you almost bought.

ronan is angles and anger; mouth sharpened in a sneer, to jutting cheekbones, tensed, to a buzzed head. he is the argument you tried to avoid, all action and noise. the sound of a dress shirt whispering against a pew, the grip on a steering wheel. tall enough to knock his head on things: restaurant lamps, common sense, tall enough to be the only reason someone would look up to him. he is the sound between fourth and fifth gear, talon scars on his shoulders. molten blue eyes and careless self-possession, bruised knuckles, a switchblade of a smile.

adam is delicate. dusted in freckles, he is the day’s last few rays during dusk; tired, so tired, but still stretching for something he cannot yet reach. he is lithe, a curve to every bone. a curve to his lips, always half held back. sand dusted lashes, dustier hair, ocean eyes. something to make you sigh: rolling waves on a too-windy day, car trouble before class. he is the pride that straightens his back. oil on his hands, chapped from being washed too many times for this and the country dirt underneath his nails.

gansey is the indecisive fact. on the outside his shoulders are broad, like his mind. hands shoved through hair brown and sun-kissed, too many questions, too little sleep under his dreaming hazel eyes. sometimes these eyes are golden, sometimes unreadable, sometimes afraid. he is the perfunctory statement in a debate, breeding betrayed in the jaw, a square, in his precise features. he is the character of worn leather, the smell of gasoline, blind faith.

noah is the way sunlight catches in your rearview mirror and washes your reflection out: pale, light hair, colorless lips. he is your darkly tinted windows, but smudged. dorito fingerprints on the corner of a page. misty eyes, a fair day in the forest; blue or green or brown, something distant, laughing, witty. the glitter you never notice that is subtly everywhere, a joke muttered under his breath, the closing of a door.

kavinsky is the roar of an engine. dark greased hair, slippery tongue behind full lips around a bottle of lukewarm beer. a language you don’t speak. an empty home, a cynical remark, the feeling you get when you know you’re too late. thin from too many near misses, too many lines, too many finish lines. a finger gun to your head. eyes that smoke, darker and challenging; squealing tires, worn down gears, red lights.

—  the look in their eyes, that something to them
