so i saw a post listing films in foreign languages and i thought i could expand on the list a little bit but my addition got so massive i decided to move it to a separate post. this list will focus on my target languages and feature a little bit of french as well just to spice it up.
films are good for several reasons
usually quite fun
actually challenging if u watch w/o subtitles and the easiest way to achieve immersion in the privacy of your home
might give u cultural insight as well
or encourage you to learn some history!!!!
i’m really tired of people watching almodóvar and being like uuuuuuhuuuu look the great spanish director and forgetting that not only are there spanish films not directed by almodóvar but also that spanish is spoken in other countries as well and GUESS WHAT they produce culture
ok here we go!!!!! im really lazy and my computer is agonizingly slow so i can provide no links. if something interests you search for it et voila
WARNING!!!!! long post
magia salvaje - this is an uber cool colombian film showing largely unexplored areas of colombia which i think is the most beautiful country on earth. it was recommended to me independently by a friend from my spanish class and my colombian pen pal gal. from its website: “magia salvaje es la cinta del mundo natural más ambiciosa realizada en el país (…) [realizada en] 85 locaciones y 20 ecosistemas. (…) un tributo a la belleza de colombia“ tl;dr: cool shit u should watch, it’s available on yt
señor ávila - a p good series filmed by the mexican hbo starring tony dalton as an exemplary father and husband that starts working as a paid killer for the mafia, but it’s not all peachy because it affects his personal life and his son gets into some really deep shit. gets a bit grim at times but good nevertheless
retrato de un comportamiento animal - really cute indie film made in uruguay. an unlikely couple on a trip to brazil. expect nice landscapes and voseo
relatos salvajes - dark humour from argentina, a series of episodes in which people go absolutely bonkers over the most petty shit and also get p violent when you wouldn’t expect them to be. produced by pedro almodóvar if that serves as any recommendation.
la historia oficial - another one from argentina. drama. set during the dictatorship and based on true events, follows a family through a period when they would literally tear lil kids from their mothers and drown the parents if they were enemies of the state. watch it

los diarios de motocicleta - starring gael garcía bernal in an adaptation of che guevara’s memoir in which young che travels the world on his motorbike
no - ok this is some amazing shit (oscar nomination holaaaa). it’s a chilean film with gael garcía bernal set in the 1980s. in 1988 pinochet held a referendum in which basically if u said “yes” he stayed as te country’s official and lawful leader and if you said “no”, well, he went. the film is about the campaign that sought to get rid of him

il capitale umano - drama. a car accident ties together the lives of two families. people go crazy. great performance by valeria bruni tedeschi

i once promised a crash course in polish thing and i know i’m delaying it horribly but sometime next week i will prepare a similar post about polish films (if u folks are interested, ofc)
I don’t understand, why does doucheface Christian Grey have a fanbase when Ian Miller does not?
You know, Tula’s husband from My Big Fat Greek Wedding?
Like, Tula was so in charge of that relationship because he wanted her to be, he followed her lead all the way. He never coxed her into doing anything she didn’t want to. In fact, when he pulled up to his apartment he totally kept it low key. He made it clear that he wanted to be intimate with her, but gave the reins to her. (Which, she excitedly took once they were upstairs. LOL)
No guilt trip, no emotional cohersion …. nothing.
Imagine that, though, a straight white guy in a movie/book/ect that didn’t make a woman feel like she owed him sex.
And Tula asked a lot of him and he NEVER complained!!!!
He is an A++++++++ Dude
But, we talk about wanting more good guys and hating the bad straight white boys (there are plenty of those) but how about we actually give good guys the love they so totally deserve?
with love, from anonymous (chapter 1) - written with @westiris
Summary: Isak just wants to get his coffee in peace, Even has a crush, and there’s a secret admirer on the loose. (Huge thank-you to @stardefiant and @koninginnen for reading over this and making my writing coherent!)
At this point, Isak’s pretty sure that his locker has become sentient enough to figure out how to fuck with him at the worst times. All he has the energy for is to grab his Bio textbook in time to catch the tram. He already has plans to veg out in front of his laptop with a bag of sour cream and onion chips, goddammit, he doesn’t care how much Eskild complains about his breath stinking up the whole place. He deserves it after the shitty day he’s had, because there’s no way a test on motion could’ve been that hard. Isak sometimes moves from his bed. He knows how it works.
concept: john and sherlock cooking dinner together. sherlock’s arms around john’s middle while he stirs the pasta. john turning around to give him a kiss before telling him to get out the veg, smacking him on the bum when he turns to go to the fridge. stealing sips of each other’s wine. slow dancing to only the sound of their own soft laughter, quiet and simple and entirely in love
Even after two days, Sherlock still had a hard time wrapping his mind around it. He and John were married. Married: a word that Sherlock used to despise, now somehow applied to him.
Sherlock had offered to head to town in the search of some more lube, where he was going to find some escaped him, Sussex Downs was tiny, and hardly had three choices of veg much less a choice in lube.
He watched the ground as he walked, lost in his own thoughts of the wedding, the two days following, and how much lube might be too much—never too much right? The wind picked up just slightly, enough to blow some of John’s scent from his jumper into Sherlock’s face. He smiled, remembering John’s mock irritation as he walked out the door in the jumper that wasn’t his own.
Texting John—I hope you’re ready for another round when I return—Sherlock slipped his phone back into his pocket and picked up the pace. Two days after they wed, they were already out of the four bottles of lube they packed. No matter, Sherlock would be back soon and John would be naked and waiting.
So my babe @actualdannyfenton knows nothing about Final Fantasy and they gave me their impressions of Final Fantasy XV characters that I sent them and had me crying. Here they are~
Noctis Lucis Caelum: “Look I know I said I outgrew my emo phase but MCR just released that new logo and MOM LISTEN TO THE NEW LOGO”.
Prompto Argentum: This man spends at least half an hour every morning doing his hair like that. If he doesn’t have time he slaps some gel in it and sticks his head out the window for a similar effect. He shops at Hot Topic but would never own up to it. Probably got those gloves from his emo little sister’s closet. He’s constantly saying he’s not gay but anytime ‘BUT MOM IT’S MCR’ shows up his heart melts a lil.
Gladiolus Amicitia: “Look man I’m not gay but twenty dollars is twenty dollars”. He probably acts super tough but he has a pack of Capri Suns in his bag at all times and probably had like seven Tamagotchis growing up. This man is the Mom Friend. He kept his old DS and still checks on his Nintendo Dogs at least once a week.
Ignis Scientia: “Alright class please turn to page 284. Jordan, turn to page 69 (;”. Me, an Intellectual. He probably stabbed a fork into a socket on a dare in middle school and kept the hair because some chick said it looked cool. This dude got bullied so hard in middle school and every night he said to himself “I’ll be their manager some day” and now he works at the local CVS and gets into fights with people on the internet over mundane things.
Lunafreya Nox Fleuret: This girl keeps trying to impress 'BUT MOM MCR’ by faking to like his interests but in reality only 'Me, an Intellectual’ likes her and she’s PISSED. She has a septum piercing and anytime someone breathes in her immediate vicinity she feels the need to talk about it. “I’m Vegan.” “Okay coo-” “I’M A VEGAN EVERYONE SHOULD BE VEGAN VEGANS ARE THE ONLY DECENT PEOPLE ALIVE VEG-”.
Ravus Nox Fleuret: He wears a really long cape that gets in the way of everything he does and anytime someone asks why he keeps it on he says “it’s for aesthetic” very dramatically while flipping his hair. He cares more about how he looks taking over the world than his actual plan. He didn’t start trying to destroy everything until his hair was at the perfect length and wound up missing a perfect opportunity but he passed “my bangs are so uneven I can’t be seen ruling the world with imperfect hair!!!”. He puts on eyeliner every morning without fail.
Aranea Highwind: This is Camilla from Fire Emblem but with gray hair. Loves with a burning passion but kills just as easily. “Oh you’re sad sweetheart? Who do I need to kill to make you feel better? I’ll go get the axe”. She’s a great friend and gives excellent advice but should anyone cross her she makes them wish they were never born. She probably has a thing for MCR Boy too but he’s not too happy about it. 'Me, an Intellectual’ probably thinks he’s so much smarter than her but she could wipe the floor with his whiny mansplaining ass in chess. Best friends with 'I’m not gay but twenty dollars is twenty dollars’.
Regis Lucis Caelum: Probably MCR Boy’s dad who just needs a break. He thinks his troubles are finally over until the new P!ATD album drops. He has never seen a child wear jeans so tight. Rumor has it that if you hear a loud rumbling noise from the castle it’s just him sighing because MCR Boy just found a new FOB song. He doesn’t know what a Tumblr is and everyday he thanks the lord for that until his son comes in and says “dad if I get 10,000 notes on a post will you take me to Warped Tour”.
Ardyn Izunia: Gwaine from Merlin but with purple hair. Probably has some fancy European accent. Every character is in love with him except for 'Me, an Intellectual’ who hates how he so flawlessly gets everyone to love him. Kicks ass while still having perfect hair. He probably sold his soul for the hair to stay so well sculpted in battle. “L'Oréal: Because I’m worth it”.
Iris Amicitia: “Sure, Jan”. She just came here to see her friend 'Septum Piercing’ but 'Me, an Intellectual’ showed up and is complaining about how women are taking over and she just has this fucking face. She has so much restraint but her bullshit limit is almost reached and she’s about ten seconds from punching 'Me, an Intellectual’ in his fedora wearing face. Always a sweetheart but she has her limits.
Cindy Aurum: “Call me whatever you want for having my tits out but you’re the one who was looking”. Self-confidence goddess who inspires everyone around her to love themselves. A literal sunflower. She’s like 79% gay. She might seem a little dim to some people but get her talking about something she cares about and holy hell is she a genius. Let’s people make their own assumptions about her so she knows who her real friends are.
Cid Sophiar: Old Man Jenkins. He acts like a super grouchy old bastard but deep down he cares about his misguided MySpace grandchildren. Probably makes them care packages for the road but says they’re from Lesbian Self Care Goddess. “ TAKE YOUR ATTITUDE AND SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS have fun on your adventures kids be safe call me when you get there AND GET A DAMN HAIRCUT”.
Cor Leonis: A girl broke up with him once ten years ago and he’s been locked away writing sad emo poetry about how nice guys finish last ever since. Watches romance anime exclusively and has a Hatsune Miku body pillow. Probably a Brony tbh. MCR Boy needs help finishing a quest but he won’t stop talking about how he was “so CRUELLY friendzoned and how LIFE IS POINTLESS without the LIGHT OF LOVE I mean I bought her dinner and wasn’t a total ass WHAT MORE DOES SHE WANT”.
Nyx Ulric: Gray haired Draco Malfoy. Rich boy spoiled and groomed to be evil all his life but he’s really just naive. Has no idea what’s going on 99% of the time but he’s just trying his best. Doesn’t really agree with the shady things going on but he’s smart enough not to question Old Man Aesthetic Cape. Eyeliner Villain is probably his dad. Also probably a giant douche canoe but if you call him out on it HIS FATHER WILL HEAR ABOUT THIS.
Gentiana: Her dad is also Old Man Cape Aesthetic. She’s trying so hard not to slap the shit out of his overdramatic ass and take over the world herself but she has appearances to keep up. Also probably tried to recruit MCR Boy to the Dark Side with her magic womanly wills but he’s too gay for Hot Topic Lord for that to work. Probably the only one in the entire game with half a brain cell.
A/N: Another Gibbs prompt, I enjoyed this one, it was fun to write this homely side of Gibbs that we see glimpses of throughout the show. Feedback is welcomed and very much appreciated. Hope you all enjoy it, as always, thank you for reading <3
Title: May I Have This Dance?
Requested by:@shadycollectioncoffeeuniverse - “Prompts 37 and 33 (in that order please) with Gibbs and only if your comfortable with it could it be smutty, if not then fluff please?”
Word Count: 829
Pairing: Gibbs x Reader
33. “You’re really soft.” 37. “May I have this dance?”
“Jethro?” You called when you opened the front door to the home you share with the Senior Special Agent, “You home?” Pushing the front door shut you clicked the lock before dropping your bag and toed off your shoes, wiggling your toes onto the rug. You eased out a long sigh, it had been a trying day at the office but now you were home and ready to cook dinner with your man.
cooks and cleans while they’re in school, then picks them up perfectly on time
the other moms are SO into him
but they’re afraid to come onto him since they think he might be gay for namjoon
barbara was brave once day and tried to flirt
but he was clueless and thought she wanted his brownie recipe
oh yeah, he always helps out at the school
especially during bake sales
his food sells out in minutes
there’s always a long Que
one year, two kids got into a fist fight over the last cupcake
seokjin packs the tastiest lunches, with the perfect balance between veg + meat
the world’s laziest dad
half the time, he sleeps through when he’s meant to pick the kids up from school, or go to parent/teacher meetings
but if one of them is getting bullied he wakes up and scares the shit out of the secretary, the teachers and the principle
hell, even the bully’s parents were terrified of him
he’s got a foul mouth and sick insults whenever someone tries to mess w his kids
he raises them to be filled with swag
even as babies they wore shades and gold 2 dollar chains
buys a lot of kumamon merch, under the guise that it’s for them, but it’s really for him
is he the dad or the kid, people wonder ??
he has more fun on the playground than his kids
“quick, someone push me on the swings!”
he’s so much fun and sunshine and happiness
which rubs off on his children
they’re the nicest, kindest tiny humans with the happiest dimpled smiles
everyone at school might think they’ve got a crush on them, since they’re as friendly and into skinship as their dad is
hobi’s not v good with discipline though
and he cries when his kids cry
but if they do something genuinely wrong then he’ll put them in their place
his kids are bff’s with tae’s + jimin’s kids
they’re the next generation sunshine line
his kids also love to annoy yoongi’s kids
when he accidentally breaks one of his kids’ toys, he’ll blame it on someone else, like jimin
from the moment they were born, he’s been teaching them about philosophy and maths and English
so they’re bilingual and super smart and deep
but also horny af
they found his porn collection at a young age and have been corrupted ever since
“dad, why has that girl got no clothes on?”
“uuuuUUUUGH THAT’S JIMIN’S GO ASK HIM!”
but when they’re older he sits them down and not only hands them the biggest pile of condoms but also teaches his sons that they should be polite to their partners and care about their sexual needs too
but teaches his daughters that boys r v evil and have gross germs
cracks pervy jokes and curses a lot but tears into his kids if they do the same
his kids are the squishiest lil beans
he loves them so much that he stuffs them with food and they’re a lil chubby but that’s just more to love
he gets really upset if they’re upset or getting bullied
he’s an angel so he finds it hard to even get mad at the bullies (he’s more upset than anything)
but it’s cool cause uncle yoongi comes in to fuck shit up
his kids have never been bullied since
the teachers all have a crush on him, or at least, the ones who don’t think he’s dating jungkook do
but he just thinks they’re friendly
which annoys rapmon “dude, she’s hot!”
“she teaches my son science, bro, she’s got to be nice to me. she’ll probably get fired if she’s not”
“she gave you hER NUMBER”
teachers contemplated putting them in “special” classes before realizing they were just very weird
but tae got so annoyed by that; “why are you saying they’re weird? why do you think they’re stupid? so what if jennie likes to play with rocks? rocks are cool!”
he dresses them up in the cutest (but dumbest) dinosaur onesies and light up shoes
and he doesn’t care for gender stereotypes
if his sons want dolls and pink socks, then sure!
oh, jennie wants toy cars and to cut her hair short? why not!
they don’t have many serious family photos, since tae + his kids keep pulling silly faces
they also inherited his cute moles
another guy who the teachers are after
hell, even the little girls are after him
except he’s well aware of it, unlike jimin, and is cocky as hell
raises hot, cocky little shits too
his kids adore him and always want his attention
but he’s one of those old fashioned dads who takes a step back and acts like the “man” of the house
so he doesn’t initiate skinship very often but adores them from a distance
but they’re not a fan of his cooking and go to seokjin’s house for proper food
and they’re super competitive and win everything at school
they’re probably the captains of every team sport available
A/N: So, this is my first time venturing into Chicago PD territory. It’s been years since I’ve written any fanfic, so I hope I did these incredible characters justice. I started watching the Chicago shows after my friends annoyed me to watch it (I love you guys!) and I am completely, head over heels in love with Linstead. What can I say, I have a thing for cop shows and strong female detectives who kick some serious ass. Anyway, hope you guys enjoy it and please let me know what you think!
It had been a long day. Erin had only had the strength to shower and put on an old pair of sweats, before she threw herself on the couch. And that was exactly where she still was, hours later, getting up only to pick up her dinner when the delivery kid arrived. Jay had texted her earlier, saying he was going to Molly’s with the guys, so she figured he would still be a while.
To her surprise, however, shortly after 10pm she heard the key turn in the lock and the door open a second later, the light from the hallway casting his shadow through the entrance of their apartment. She hadn’t turned the lights on when she’d gotten home a few hours earlier, a headache pulsing behind her eyes, so the TV was the only source of light in the living room.
This case had been hard - but today had been a special kind of stressful and devastating. Erin kept seeing herself in those girls and it was impossible not to get too involved. After everything she had seen and heard about that home, she knew this could have been her if Hank hadn’t taken her in. She could have ended up dead in a ditch somewhere, just like Sam, and she would have been just one more unfortunate kid who had been dealt a bad hand in life and got mixed up with the wrong people.
It could have been her.
She thanked God every day for Hank Voight. Even if her mother didn’t.
Jay had once told her that she had way too much empathy for the victims and she figured he was right - she really did. But how could she possibly do this job otherwise?
“Hey,” she finally greeted him, when she saw him drop his keys in the bowl by the door. He looked up and she saw the sad look in his eyes, how exhausted he felt. “I ordered some Chinese, if you’re hungry.”
He smiled at her tiredly and closed the distance between the door and the couch in two seconds. The next thing she knew, his lips were on hers, his hand cupping her cheek in an intense kiss. She sighed into it and ran her fingers through his short hair, trying to comfort him with her touch as much as his kiss was doing the same for her.
“I love you, you know that?” He gave her one final peck, before pulling away. She smiled at him happily and kissed his palm. “Sorry I took so long to get home. Kev wanted to grab a beer.” He explained, taking his hat off and throwing it on the couch.
“Don’t worry about it. I was too tired anyway. I’ve just been vegging here, watching crap TV.” She shrugged and he chuckled, leaning down to press a kiss to the side of her head, before making his way to the kitchen. “Did everything go okay with Ellie?” she called after him and heard his positive reply.
She heard him come back and rolled her eyes at his attempt to balance two food containers and two beers. Calling him an idiot - her idiot - under her breath, she plucked the food from his hand and placed the containers on the coffee table.
“I waited with her until the new family got there.” He continued, sitting down next to her with chopsticks in hand. “They seem like nice people and already have another foster kid living with them, so things should be okay.”
“I sure hope they are,” Erin said, taking a sip of her beer. “She deserves a good family, after all she’s been through.”
“Yeah,” he sighed and ate silently for a moment, lost in thought. “What these girls were going through in that place, babe, it’s…” He shook his head, as if trying to rid himself from those memories. “It’s inhuman. They’re just kids. Sam was just 15 years old. Fifteen. And to have people like that son of a bitch and Tonya using them for money, that’s just-”
He stopped himself and let out a breath. She reached out and squeezed his hand comfortingly, knowing just how hard this case had hit him, how badly he wanted to help.
“You did good, though.” She reassured him, but he shook his head and looked away. “Jay,” she put her beer bottle on the coffee table and took his hand in both of hers. “Babe, look at me.” She waited patiently until his breath returned to normal and his eyes met hers. “Hey, you did so much good for these girls. You have no idea, Jay, no idea what you did for them.”
“Sam still died.” He whispered and she finally saw just how much this girl’s death had affected him.
“Yeah, she did. And that was a tragedy. But you saved all those other girls from having to go through the same thing. You gave Ellie an out. You have no idea what you did for this girl, babe. I saw it in her eyes. You saved her life, in more ways than you could possibly imagine.”
“You think so?” Jay asked and she squeezed his hand, nodding. “I told her to call me if she ever needed anything. Gave her my card.”
“She seems like a good kid.”
“Yeah, I think she is.” He returned to his dinner and they were quiet for a couple of minutes. “You know, I keep thinking that if we had stumbled upon this case sooner, maybe we could have helped Sam. Like Voight helped you.”
“I was her age when he took me in.” She sighed, before reaching for her bottle for another sip. “I probably wouldn’t have made it past 16 if he hadn’t.”
“I can’t tell you how glad I am that he did.” he touched her cheek and leaned in for a kiss. “I can’t imagine my life without you. Can’t imagine what life would be like if we hadn’t met.”
“That’s what you did for Ellie today.” She whispered and closed the distance between them again, her kiss gentle and lingering. “You were her Voight. So that maybe fifteen years from now, a great guy will be sitting in their living room, thanking his lucky stars that you saved her life too.”
He looked at her with a newfound strength and purpose, as if she had just handed him the best prize ever, and the emotion shining in his eyes was enough to take her breath away.
“Thank you,” he said after a moment, his voice heavy with emotion.
She kissed him again and settled into his side. When his arm immediately enveloped her shoulders and his fingers started dancing lazily on her arm, Erin finally allowed herself to relax.
- The boy doesn’t do romance or even know much about it, he just see’s going on a date as something you do with someone you want to hump over just someone you know.
- He doesn’t play ‘games’ when it comes to daring because he has no idea about the game or how to play it, he’s everything you see, no hidden bits.
- Food, he recalls hearing that you get food on a date but had no idea what makes a good ‘date’ place and will often drag you to anywhere that smells good, table manners? haha sure, that’s a thing that won’t happen. Maybe it’s best to find somewhere you eat food with your hands because you’ve seen the boy try eat rice and noodles with his hands.
- Flowers, those things that grow on the floor right? someone will suggest he bring you flowers, he’ll show up with half a bush he ripped out or some weeds he thought looked green and nice. He tries, he really does.
- PDA is something he’s not sure has limits. Why is kissing on the cheek and holding hands fine but awkwardly trying to mount isn’t?
- It takes Roadhog a little while to tell Junkrat that a date is between him and the person he likes so no, he won’t come with you, no he doesn’t want that may details and no he won’t give you pointers on certain things.
- You will have to be patient with him, explaining when dating goes from that to a relationship but he nods along and tries to retain it, he’s just already decided he likes you and he will spit in that person whose eyeing you ups face.
- Dates at the zoo or somewhere outside is better to take Junkrat, he doesn’t sit still or quite enough for much else. He’s too fussy when he has to sit for very long. He likes looking at animals though, and amusement parks would be a good idea… if he wasn’t so freakishly tall….
- He tries to cook for you on a date once, he proudly drops the burnt meat and under cooked veg on your plate. His apron all burned and stained, one of those aprons that have the fake naked people on..
- Gifts, he loves to give you gifts before the date.. and sometimes during, you have to watch his hands because if they aren’t on your ass they are in someone else pockets.
- Silent but deadly farts
- When sharing a bed with ANYONE, he will go starfish mode and push anything off. No one is safe
- If Umbra sticks around long enough, he will slip his veggies under the table for Umbra to eat. *note: he knows which veg are bad for doge*
- Noctis drools in his sleep 100%
- Will use his princely status as an excuse ROYALLY (haha, get it?)
- Still makes fart jokes
- If he drinks, he’s a fucking lightweight
- He is the embodiment of a golden retriever.
- Speaking of which, he’d probably own 10 + a chocobo ranch
- Gets bad headaches from how much he strains his eyes (kings knight + photography)
- Smells like wet chocobo if he doesn’t bathe in a while
- Has ADHD and cannot sit still. I’m convinced
- Best clap backs and no one expects it
- Loves to be little spoon
- Loudest snores
- Loudest farts
- Loudest belches
- It takes a lot for Gladio to get wasted. He’s a tank.
- Will flex on purpose to intimidate and impress.
- This guy hates ebony and can’t stand it when Ignis drinks 20 cans a day.
- Has very bad allergies despite loving the outdoors.
- He will smash anyone or anything that hurts lil sis Iris. Gladio smash.
