amy rambles

little details in fantastic beasts that i gasped/screamed at/loved:

  • at his macusa hearing they say newt’s older brother was a war hero
  • which gives me a totally different perspective on newt’s childhood and life
  • he’s the carefree, daring, wild younger brother who can’t fit in, living under the shadow of his amazing brother like how must that have affected his development as a person
  • (btw newt was friends with leta because they were both outsiders which makes my heart hurt)
  • worrying means you suffer twice” A PLUS NEWT A PLUS
  • also newt just like casually handing jacob heavy duty protection and tossing him into the fray
  • grindelwald snarling at newt in the interrogation room, wondering how albus dumbledore could possibly find this young unassuming man so amazing, so likable, so defendable 
  • (also i’m like 150% sure newt scamander was rubeus hagrid’s personal hero)
  • the necklace graves gives credence is the deathly hallows symbol aka gellert grindelwald’s claimed sign
  • i saw that lil flash and s c r e a m e d 
  • also i find percival graves and porpentina goldstein’s relationship so interesting
  • like they must have worked together as aurors
  • percival looks the sorriest when the president orders tina out of headquarters
  • and he comes downstairs straightaway to see her after that incident in the dusty macusa basement
  • and tina looks so betrayed when he shackles her alongside newt and jacob
  • what must their relationship have been like? mentor and mentee? close friends? colleagues? just something that’s been on my mind
  • WHEN TALKING TO HIS BEASTS NEWT CALLS HIMSELF THEIR MOTHER
  • aka “mother’s here” like can he be any more precious ?????
  • “wilds of arizona”. just…like i never thought i would hear that phrase ever lol
  • newt being dragged away in chains, desperately begging macusa not to harm his creatures, that they’re not dangerous, that they’re not dangerous, please don’t hurt them
  • queenie calling jacob honey
  • teasing her sister for being the careerwoman and tina looking embarrassed but proud
  • queenie casually strolling through macusa with the intent of busting her friends and sister outta there
  • trying loads of unlocking spells until jacob (bless his muggle soul) just kicks the damn door down
  • tina seeing her mother in the pool 
  • thinking about her relationship with her mother and how much she must have missed her parents, especially since they died at such an early age
  • newt begging tina to trust him, that he’ll catch her, and her visible hesitation
  • she must have had such a difficult life but is still so capable of love and affection and trust #porpentinagoldsteinisabamf
  • also that spell the goldstein sisters do to change their clothes like i need that
  • also newt’s small concession to fashion when he changes his fun bowtie into something a tad more formal
  • newt casually asking jacob how people trust him so quickly
  • that passing remark that people generally find newt annoying, like it’s so matter-of-fact, made me :’(
  • the tears in newt’s eyes when he’s saying farewell to jacob
  • jacob’s unabashed delight at seeing all these magical creatures and hearkening back to his wild days on the expedition teams in wwi
  • also can we take a moment to realize that jacob is a veteran and he’s probably seen so much grief and heartbreak and death and he is still so upbeat and helpful and purely genuinely excited at seeing new amazing things
  • and all he wants to do is open a bakery and make people happy like :’)
  • but they made us cocoa!”
  • jacob and queenie bonding over their grandfathers’ birds and mutual love of cooking
  • that little spring in tina’s step after newt asks if he can come back in person
  • not to mention newt’s lil pause on the gangway and that brief moment when he stands, contemplating, and then hurries away
  • NEWT’S PUFF SCARF
  • jacob’s hand reflexively reaching for his murtlap bite as queenie smiles at him
  • that deja vu moment when newt bumps into jacob and leaves him the silver occamy shells
  • remembering and trying to help his friend fulfill his lifelong dream
  • every single second of newt’s erumpent mating dance
  • pickett blowing a raspberry after newt’s stern little talk about sulking
  • JUST EVERYTHING ABOUT THAT MOVIE IS SO PRECIOUS DAMMIT

if you have more fun lil tidbits you caught, please add!! i’d love to see what you guys saw too :) 

okay so i should be working but i got drunk instead and i’m thinking about how, in the ‘skyfire cycle’ episode of b99, amy says “those are our dads” in response to rosa saying that holt and kevin need to bone. this suggests that amy sees the squad as her family, but also that she sees rosa particularly as a sister figure. amy santiago, who has seven brothers and is the only girl, found an unlikely sister in rosa diaz. thank you and goodnight.

les amis + phrases repeated too often:

Enjolras: “Grantaire, no.”

Courfeyrac: “Watch this!” immediately proceeded by disaster

Combeferre: “As a doctor, I would advise against it. But as a friend, I really want to see that happen.”

Bossuet: “Can someone call an ambulance?”

Joly: “I think Bossuet has a concussion.”

Grantaire: “Hey, Enjolras -” see Enjolras’ for details

Feuilly: “Yeah, I slept great last night! I got three hours sleep!”

Bahorel: “Bruh.”

Jehan: “It’s only illegal in some countries.”

Marius: “Sorry…”

I know Theo has put them through so much but I think the chains and cuffs are a little much... I mean the kid is in the exact same outfit that he was from the episode before. He's like a true prisoner of the McCall pack only because they have the power of Kira's sword on their side, but if they didn't Theo would rip all of them apart so quickly. I'm sure him and the pack are going to band together sooner or later but I'm already impatient and ready for them to kick ass together. End of rant😅

Okay, after watching the promo for the new episode, I honestly should have had the same thought you had. “Liam seems to be taking this prison guard act a little too seriously.” However…. honestly, that’s not the first thing that crossed my mind. I just saw him in chains and handcuffed and my mind went into inappropriate thoughts. (Seriously, someone write a Theo smut that involve him being chained or cuffed to the bed, lol!)

But after getting that dirty thought out of my mind, you’re right. Liam is taking Theo as a hostage a little too seriously, but I honestly don’t blame him though. After what Theo did to Scott and his pack, I can see why no one trusts Theo. That sort of thing take time and it’s clearly Liam has him chained for reasons we’ll find out on Tuesday. I just hope they’re like legit reasons and not something stupid, because sometimes the choices Liam makes aren’t exactly the best ones, but that’s okay because he’s still learning just like Scott when he was first a werewolf and then a true alpha.

Anyways, back to your point, I’m also very excited to see Theo “join” Scott’s pack when they put their differences aside and work together to take out The Ghost Riders and bring Stiles back. I hope by then Theo will somewhat be in Scott’s good graces and things will be better with everyone.

So REPOSTS Eh?

I just found a couple of people who, you guessed it, reposted my recent YOI comic on Instagram.

It’s alright, I’m not mad yet. I rarely come across art stolen from me, and instagram is a cesspool of stolen images anyway so at the moment this situation is almost funny.

Almost.

Guys, I don’t think I have to go on a whole spiel to why I would find this a little frustrating. Literally all you had to do was ask to repost and there was a 99% chance I would have said “sure“ so long as I knew where it was going, it remained unedited (unless given explicit permission) and that there would be credit involved.

Sure, I may be reconsidering that policy at the moment but it’s the current policy never the less.

I currently do not know whether or not Instagram is the only place where people have reposted my stuff but if you come across anything that you recognize is from me posted outside of Tumblr or Twitter (as I’ve given one person permission to repost) please assume that it’s not supposed to be there.

I bug on moffat a lot because in recent years his writing has decreased in quality BUT allow me to say that some of my absolute favorite quotes in the universe come from series 5/6 episodes of Doctor Who that were written by him like:

  • “The universe is big, its vast and complicated, and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles.”
  • “Life is a mess everyone has memories of a holiday they couldn’t have been on, or a party they never went to, or met someone for the first time and felt like they’ve know them their whole lives. Time is being written all around us everyday. People think their memories are bad, but their memories are fine”
  • “If it’s time to go, remember what you’re leaving. Remember the best. My friends have always been the best of me.”
  • “we’re all stories in the end, just make it a good one, eh?”
  • “And the times we had, eh? Would’ve had. Never had. In your dreams, they’ll still be there. The Doctor and Amy Pond… and the days that never came.”
  • “You’re always here to me. And I always listen. And I can always see you.” 
  • “She was clever and brave and kind and funny. And had more love in one heart than I could ever have in two.”
  • “Nobody important”. Blimey, that’s amazing. D’you know, in 900 years of time and space I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important before.”
  • “Because every time you see them happy you remember how sad they’re going to be. And it breaks your heart. Because what’s the point in them being happy now if they’re going to be sad later. The answer is, of course, because they are going to be sad later.”

so when I’m harsh on moffats writing, whether it’s sherlock or doctor who, I’m harsh because I know he can do better… Because He HAS done better. I am holding him to the standard he set. Don’t make me into a pariah for criticizing his mediocre writing when I know it can be anything but.

I don’t know what’s sexier, Daniel being fucking brilliant, his accent while saying all the capitals, squinting into the crowd because of the light, or his concentrating facial expression.

✔️All of the above.
