A new meta with a strange ability has public opinion divided on whether she’s a menace or a miracle-worker. The jury’s still out on the matter when the Snart siblings get caught in her crosshairs.

Or: Leonard and Lisa end up temporarily de-aged. It’ll wear off, but in the meantime, Team Flash has to figure out what the heck to do with them and how to keep them safe. Inviting them to live at the West house seems like a natural, if terrible, solution.

MORE Adult Animated Films You Can Watch Instead of Sausage Party
  • Waltz With Bashir: An Israeli animated autobiographical war-documentary film about director Ari Folman attempting to recover repressed memories from his time as a soldier in the Lebanon War of 1982. This is a very dark film that explores many heavy themes throughout. It was actually quite controversial in some Arabian countries, being officially banned in Lebanon.
  • Persepolis: It's about a young girl growing up in the middle of the 1979 Iranian revolution and the political conflicts and government corruption she dealt with at that time, covering mostly the first 20 years of her life. This film was controversial too, with Iranian government only allowing a limited release and Bangkok's International Film Festival dropping it completely, as well as being protested against after an airing on a Tunisian television network, and being completely banned in Lebanon.
  • Mary and Max: A stop motion film about two strangers, an adult with Asperger's Syndrome and a little girl who lives in an abusive environment, who one day become pen-pals. It's actually a very profound film that deals with themes such as friendship, isolation, abuse, suicide, mental illness, and more. The film has many heavy moments as well as many light-hearted and funny ones, having just as much drama as it has comedy.
  • Strange Frame, Love and Sax: A 2012 cutout animated science-fiction musical film starring Tara Strong and Claudia Black, about a lesbian couple from another planet who fall in love after meeting each other while escaping a riot and form a band with an ultimate goal of worldwide fame, but are eventually split apart. Many of the characters in this movie are LGBTQA+, and all of them are of color.
  • A Scanner Darkly: An American animated sci-fi thriller film about a future where America lost the war on drugs and everyone is under constant police surveillance, directed by Richard Linklater and starring Robert Downey Jr., Keanu Reeves, and Winona Ryder, based on Phillip K. Dick's novel of the same name.
  • Waking Life: Also directed by Richard Linklater, an American animated drama documentary about a guy who constantly finds himself placed in various dream-like realities, most of which have people who have conversations with him about philosophical topics questioning the nature of reality and existence itself.
  • Wrinkles/Arrugas: A Spanish animated drama film about a retired bank manager suffering from Alzheimer's who is taken into an assisted living home and makes a new friend, who together try to disguise Emilio's worsening illness from doctors so that they don't transfer him to the top floor.
  • Princess: A Dutch drama film about a missionary named Augustus whose sister, a former porn star named 'Princess', leaves behind her daughter after she dies of a drug overdose. Augustus adopts her daughter and embarks on a violent mission to destroy all existing evidence of Princess's career. Probably the most explicit one of all of these films, not for the faint of heart due to it's themes and graphic nature.
  • Fantastic Planet: French stop-motion film about a group of aliens who get captured and kept as pets by another, more spiritually/technologically advanced species of aliens, but organize a mass rebellion after one of the aliens from the advanced planet educates the other spieces, which is forbidden. This film contains very surreal, psychedelic imagery that's similar to Classic Sesame Street, The Electric Company, and Yellow Submarine.

I don’t really think a big, epic movie for Warrior Cats is the correct move. The franchise thrives on tons of characters, huge universes and long, convoluted storylines.

I think Warriors deserves a humble, low-budget animated series, something like Silverwing or Redwall, or even Pokemon. Something that isn’t too overhyped or full of itself, because let’s be honest, fighting wild cat drama is absurd and probably won’t translate well to the big screen unless huge changes are made to the universe

Okay but seriously, imagine this:

a Hollywood movie based on Evgeni Malkin’s escape to America

Quadrophenia (1979) is not an adaptation of the ambitious concept-album by The Who. Rather, it’s a stand-alone social-drama/youth movie that allows itself to be freely inspired by its soundtrack. The film played a big part in the mod-revival of the late 1970s, showing all the stylish bits of what it must have meant to be Mod in the mid-1960s, with great eye for detail: slim fit suits and tennis polo’s, Vespa scooters and big parka jackets, loud British bands and amphetamines, rebellion and rioting – it’s all there, in a careful and stylized reconstruction. Director Franc Roddam also leans on elements from 1960s kitchen-sink realism, for a style that also has an eye for the darker sides of the working class youth culture - the alienation, the boredom, the search for a sense of belonging. This makes Quadrophenia a great and sophisticated youth movie about both adolescent anguish and cool.

“It’s a dramedy, for sure, you don’t have to look for the jokes - the comedy comes from the drama itself. It’s really a story about three very normal people who have found something that makes them happy, and it’s very different from the conventional societal relationship. They’re really trying to figure it out, and you’re kind of along for the ride while these three people are like, ‘What’s happening?’” -  Priscilla Faia interviewed for InStyle Magazine

I scream, I cry, I curse, I say I hate it and will never forget. I say I’ll burn everything to the ground if they don’t have a good and happy life but let’s be honest here, I’m all here for the drama, I live for it and happiness is for the fics haha And these two are pretty much the definition of drama itself, my poor babies can’t have like one week of peace it’s sooo rude but man I LOVE IT SO MUCH <3 You know what I love the most ? They always -ALWAYS- find they way back to each other. They’re SOOOOO beautiful I can’t even write how much I love them and how much they’re precious to my heart and soul <3
Anyway, I really think this season is one the best we had and I can’t think about the show being cancelled, it’s just impossible !
Oh and I was supposed to wait until the season’s finale to vid again but what can I say ? These two are my worst weekness <3

anonymous asked:

I've got a couple characters on the run from every federal and law enforcement agency known to mankind because everyone thinks they just assassinated POTUS. What kind of drama/conflict can they have while they're trying to prove who the real killer is? Also, what can the government do while the characters are on the run to try to catch them? Thanks

Yikes, okay. So this is one of those awful things that you want to know more about, but you’re afraid to research it. Speaking of researching illegal things, however, allow me to point you all in the direction of this awesome resource: Havocscope.

I actually don’t think your problem is fleshing out the story post-assassination. I think the problem is understanding the “why’s” and “how’s” of your story a little bit better. 

Think about what actually happened versus what everyone thinks happened. You mentioned that these characters were suspects, but your wording suggests they didn’t do it. So who did? Or is the president perhaps still alive? What actually happened? Make sure you’re able to explain it in detail, down to motives of all characters involved. Learn all you can about secret service protection to help you plot it out. 

How did your characters get wrapped up in it? Write out how your characters got involved from the beginning, and write out what their role will be in the end. You may uncover some drama when you start to think about how and why your characters were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Was it intentional? Was it planned? By whom? 

Focus on the consequences of the problem, and not just the problem. Your characters are being accused of an act of treason, and they’re obviously being pursued for it. But what else is going on around them? What is the state of the country in the wake of this event? 

What else is causing conflict in your characters’ lives? Prior to this giant accusation, what conflicts were your characters already facing? Were they struggling financially? Struggling to find purpose in life? Fighting to protect someone they care about? Seeking validation from someone or something? What did your characters want before their main priority became running from this crime? Whatever those things are, you’ll need to find ways of resolving them throughout your story, and that will help you add more drama. 

Plotting is difficult, anon. It takes a lot of trial and error, and a lot of redoing, deleting, adding, restructuring. But ultimately, the details of the drama and the conflict will come from your basic concept. I can tell you where to look to find the drama, but the actual drama itself will come to you as you think about your story. 

I cannot stress enough the importance of thinking about your story.

The reason writers are able to hash out the details of their plots isn’t because they sit down with pen and paper and map it all out. It’s because we spend most waking moments thinking about it. Because we love our stories, and we want to see them take shape. There will be times when we’re frustrated, and our minds need a break, but you’ll discover more drama in your plots by daydreaming at work/school, or in those moments right before sleep, or in the shower. 

Be patient with yourself. If you know your story needs fleshing out, keep thinking about the story as much as you can. Work through scenarios, ask questions about what you do know and explore whatever responses you come up with to these questions. 

And when all else fails, write what you know about your plot so far, and see what happens. Skip around and write the scenes that are fleshed out. You’d be surprised how writing one scene uncovers layers of drama you didn’t know existed. 

Good luck with your story anon!

Just have to slightly expand on my feelings for Park Seo Joon’s character Dongman in Ssam My Way, because the last time I felt this way was for Eric’s character in Oh Haeyoung and I never wrote it down and I regret it.

Dongman is not brilliant nor is he the most composed but he was good at one thing. The drama did not make that one thing his defining trait (he had wanted to be a stick of fried ddeokbokki when he was 4 and a rock star in high school) but it showed us that he had talent in it. We still don’t know exactly why he threw it all away back in 2007 but we see he’s been living his life humbly, not even going back to teach taekwondo.

The thing about him is that he is actually really honest. Because his heart is on his sleeve, he can’t lie to flatter his boss, he can’t lie to charm a girl… he tries but it is tearing him apart to do so. Thus, even for taekwondo, he chooses to run away because he knows he can’t stand to watch on the sidelines. He won’t be able to fake it.

That scene when he had dinner with his parents – how he tried to hold back his anger as his father called his current life a failure. He’s like, I know I’m a failure but I still have to live somehow so can you please let me be. The struggle is realistic for every 20-something-year-old out there. Everything in him calls for a time when he had dreams: he knows taekwondo/martial arts is his only talent! But he can’t go for it if it cannot give him an honest salary. Dreams are great but it doesn’t put food on the table. It doesn’t provide for his parents and his sister.

In many ways, both Aera and Dongman are traveling the same path to reconnect with their old dreams in one final glorious attempt – this being a drama that promotes itself as a comedy, they will probably make it in some way. That’s why what I am looking forward to their growth individually, even if they don’t end up together. (Who am I kidding, they will end up together.)

If you are a person who is stuck a mediocre job, wondering if it is worth it to give your dreams one last shot, this drama will hit you like a ton of bricks.

Top five worst Sonic Archie issues

So a while back me and @greenyvertekins​ talked a bit about our favorite Sonic Archie moments, I was thinking of doing a TOp five/top ten favorite Sonic archie issues but honestly the moments I and Greenyvertekis mentioned were pretty much my favorite/best issues. So if you want to read here! most of them are also from the best written arcs so …..

Then I thought, wouldn’t it be fun to do a top five WORST Sonic arche issues instead? :) (warning Im from the Netherlands so my English is bad, feel free to spell correct me!)

Number 05 Issue 172

Going pretty low in the list because despite this being one of  my least favorite issues it should be noted that this was the start from the comic getting better and better at this point, this ugly-face just was the blacksheep from that collection.

Not only was the cover a bad reminder that the comic was seen as bad-furry-romance-drama which I really hoped the comic wanted to distant itself from it, the entire issue is a sadlyalso  bad-furry-drama. It starts off with Amy Rose confronting Fiona Fox about the rumors that she heard from Tails that she is cheating on Sonic with Scourge, (the Green Edgy Sonic recolor) Now the story of Fiona Fox is a pretty sad one, she never had much of a character to begin with. She was first introduced as a robot in her child form to lure Tails into a trap. It turns out that Eggman based her off a real person: Fiona Fox who someway or another was left behind by Mighty and Sonic in Eggman’s prison and she manage to escape but stil holding a grudge and got angry at them for it, That is mostly what I remember her from in the past issues. From then on she would just be background character number 55 a freedom fighter with no dialog, the only times I sort of remember her was that she liked the idea of using guns, and that Sonic was afraid for Tails to be rejected by the too-old-for-you girl Fiona.Sonic wanted to talk to FIona about this issue and she mentions she still thinks SOnic is selfish for leaving her behind but that his sacrifice in issue 125 made her change her mind somewhat, That’s it. Now the weird story behind Fiona is that Karl Boilers planned to use her as a second-love interest for Sonic after Sonic broke up with Sally. Sonic was supposed to enter a relationship with Amy Rose shortly after the Sonic/Sally break up. (Keep in ind that Amy Rose back then was still 10 years old mentally at that time YIKES.) and Fiona for whatever reason was to become a rival to Amy for Sonic’s affections. Now Ken Penders apparently interfered with this idea and Karl and Ken changed it into…Fiona Fox becoming Sonic’s girlfriend instead…out of the blue….out of nowhere. At least with Amy you knew she had a crush on Sonic but with Fiona? why would Sonic ever enter a relationship with a girl he hardly interacted with and with a girl his best friend was crushing on? ..moving on various issues later and writer Karl Boilers and Ken Penders were no longer on board and new writer Ian Flyn entered into the picture it was by then far too late to clean up this mess and I could tell from the comic’s writing that Ian wasn’t sure what to do with Fiona, he tried to give her a more Sally-personality with a bad history but that felt tripped and forced. He knew he had to break the two characters off and he thought the best way to do that was to reveal that Fiona Fox became a bad-girl who fell in love with Scourge due to the events off Sonic 150 (dont worry that issue will be brought up later)

Not only did this came out of no where, it felt forced even if Fiona had no character it felt like she really was just a pawn of a writer not sure what to do with her. It also didnt help that the issue ends in a weird anticlimatic way  and in the next issue most of the characters dont even talk or seem to be phazed with Fiona’s betrayel and  Sonic would be slightly flirtatious with Sally and Amy in the next issue too, (Really Sonic you just got dumped.) The issues saving grace is a cute side story with Amy Rose and Julie Su training together and some decent/good art overall.

Number 04 Knuckles the Echidna issue 32

Yes Knuckles does count as part of the Sonic series, and if the list would be Knuckles comic focused this would have been number one. Not only was this the last issue of probably the most boring arc I ever read It also nailed the coffin on the Knuckles series as it was canned after this issue. It introduced two very uncreative very Un-SegaSonic like characters: Monk and Hunter whose design and motivations are as generic as you can imagine. Ken Penders tries to make you feel for the Monk-character but I dont think anyone was convinced. I own this issue as well and HONESTLY I forgot I even read this issue as a child it was that forgettable, even in my Knucklesfangirl phase as soon as I finished reading the last 3 issues I forgot about it, It also doesnt help that the covers while nicely drawn by Galan were cluttered and too busy, Ken Penders did the book’s art and while he did a perfect job drawing Hunter his cartoon characters were always off-model and the way he draws large mangaeyes didn’t look well. In other words the art wasnt good either.

I only remember these issues  because of @hedgehogscantswim​ review, which I suggest you guys read into as they go into much greater depth on their blog on the flaws of the art, the character designs of Monk and Hunter and the overall big problem the last issue has.  

Number 3 Sonic issue 134

Oh Yeah let’s talk about the big one, let’s talk about the issue that caused many Sonic fans to drop the comic, lets talk about the issue that split the fanbase in half and what made the Sonic-Archie comics the laughing stock of Sonic spin offs for years to come until Ian Flyn joined and the much later soft-Reboot. If the Sally/Sonic/Mina love drama didn’t convince people that the comic had badfurryromance drama this issue sure did.

Sonic sacrificed himself in issue 125 to save the world,  but was transported to a different planet cause science, he survived and had space adventures with Aliens, met up with Tails parents somehow…(Really those issues are all a blur too me at this point.) he came back to Mobuis only to discover a year has passed since then, he reunites with his nowwithlonghair girlfriend Sally and by issue 125, Sally makes it clear to Sonic that she wants him by his side as she is sort-of forced by her parents to no longer be on the battle field. However Sonic cant possibly do that, he is the hero after all, he cant be tied down Sally clearry suffering from trauma after Sonic’s death begs him to stay by her side, Sonic  tearfully tells her he can’t and Sally takes Sonic’s rejection pretty well and says that she knows being a hero is in Sonic’s blood and decides to reject her parents wishes and join her boyfriend and the rest of her friends on the battle field.

No wait Never mind, she SLAPS him across the face and calls him Selfish and breaks up with him afterwards.

Not only did this issue came in the worst possible time when the Sonally/Sonamy ship wars was rampant in the Online Sonic fandom communities. The motivation and reason for Karl Boilers to do this was in such a bad taste as well. Karl who MOST Likely was aware of the growing popularity of the Sonamy ship and the hatred the sonamy fanbase had for Sally, from people calling her a marry sue, a slut because her lack of pants, ugly due to her brown color sceme, and other funny-horrible things because shipping is serious business, Probably wanted to win and be favored by a part of the Sonic fan base and had outlined plans to have Sonic and Amy Rose become an official couple in the comics. (Even if Karl wrote Amy Rose as a 10 year old mentally girl with a body of a 12 year old together with a 17 year old teen Sonic.) They had to become a couple. How to do this you ask? by breaking Sonic/Sally up and portraying  Sally out to be a selfish cunt of a woman, not only was this so disgustingly out of character and a slap to the face to the sonally and Sally fans, it was all to make the fans to transaction to the idea of Sonamy instead. It didnt help Sally’s position in the fanbase and she along with Chris and Elise would be among the list of the most hated characters where extreme Sonamy fanbrats now had valid proof on their side.It would take years for Sally to recover. To add insult to injury the only nice thing about the issue is the introduction of new artist John Gray (whose animish-cartoondisneyish style was colorful, pleasant and very pleasing to the eye! was more then needed at that time since the art quality standards was low back then. )John has stated he did NOT like working on this issue either due to the content and story. I am so thankful that Sally has been much better written for years now.

Number 02 Sonic Super Special issue 07 Crossover with Image Comics

Where to start with this, oh boy oh boy. I put this very high on the list because this has to be one of the worst crossovers spin ofss I have ever had the pleasure of reading. and I mean that the Powerrangers/TMNT crossover was more enjoybale that this mess. This is also very high on the list not only because the art was below average and many characters were off models but Mister Ken Penders used this crossover special to shoehorn his own ‘’characters’ from his comic book series the Lost Ones. (who btw got canned after only volume 01) his characters got the most attention out of everyone else. A image-comics with Sonic crossover already sounds sort of weird and silly but hey I am Spawn fangirl, I am intrigued. But I dont even get that.

(oh wait, this is fucking it, Spawn appears for about a page to say no to Sonic and then leaves thats it??) FOR FUCK SAKE….

Honestly @robotnikholmescomicblog​ gave this comic a great review and I suggest going to their tag of Ken-Penders-Why as they bring out most of the flaws of Ken Penders writing and they said it better then I ever will.

Overall the issue is just a mess, with shallowcheap cameos of image characters, Sonic and the freedom fighters being DICKS to most of the human characters for no reason, a very anti climatic ending and a giant commercial for Ken Penders doomed and boring characters that nobody gave a dam about) characters that he planned to use in ‘’The Lost ones’’ and Knuckles 20 years later. With a character hinting to become Knuckles’s greatest enemy yet with a very ugly boring design that could rivals Hunter. (btw none of these concepts go anywhere, Lost Ones was canned, and Knuckles 20 years later didnt come in fruition the way Ken Penders wanted.)

and number 5, worst issue Sonic issue 150


This is my most least favorite issues up to date and why you might ask

well for one thing the art is okay, I give it that but it doesnt even start with Sonic,

no we get a quick-reveal  of AntiSonic pretending to be the real Sonic flirting with all the girls in knothole

We get uncomfortable panels of Mina Mongoose almost cheating on her boyfriend with Sonic, Sonic and Bunnie making out and falling asleep next together, Sonic being creepy at Amy ect and none of the girls seem to realize that this is obvious not the real Sonic but ANti-Sonic. Everbody fails to notice that Sonic is  trying to flirt with all the girls he gets his eyes on. Only Tails seems to quistion it. Shows how much his own friends seem to know him. Or his own freaking family. The real Sonic is stuck in anti-mobuis and is busy trying to convince them that he is not AntiSonic, it’s very boring and dull. Also since the real Ant was stuck in anti Mobuis couldn’t he have tried to come back to his own world with Sonic? I dont know that just confused the heck out of me, The extra side story also doesn’t help, Its the conclusion to TailS ‘’the Chosen One’’ which was,,,pretty lame too with bland-art, and has the unfortunate of introducing the fanbase to the still-hilarious Titan Tails


(OHfuckmethat’sstupid.)

So the stories are stupid, the art is okay and lame. Why is it so high on the list?

It’s THE 150 anniversary issue and this is how Karl and Ken apparently wanted to celebrate it? It also doesn’t help that the cover is really underwhelming and boring compared to the 125th issue but that’s it’s least of its problems. A short while later Ian Flyn and Tracey joined the team and Ken and Karl left. For the better. But talk about a lame way to celebrate a 150th milestone. What a waste. 

@sophiegaladheon replied to your post: So all this talk about Obi-Wan’s magnificent chest…

I know this wasn’t the point but now I want to know what the Death Watch message board looks like. You know, including all the griping about ‘that infernally good looking, incredibly dramatic Jedi who keeps foiling our plans to depose the duchess.’

@evaceratops replied to your postSo all this talk about Obi-Wan’s magnificent chest…

death watch fell for it 50% harder because, as we all know, all mandalorians are suckers for Drama™, so like… the Dramatic Disrobe itself is part of the appeal for them

We all know that there is no group in the entirety of the Galaxy that is more sold on what Kenobi is selling than a group of hotheaded Mandalorians. I mean, really. His WHEELHOUSE is angry yelling blondes, which the Death Watch have in abundance. 

So yes, the Death Watch’s message board is totally all about how Obi-Wan is a sexual menace. They maybe don’t say it in as many words but the implication is clear. 

awholelotfrosty  asked:

So I don't know if this has been discussed, but a friend of mine who hasn't been able to watch Goblin but has rather seen discussions about it, asked me "what do you think about the age gap?" and if I thought it was intentional with the casting? I wanted to do a blogpost about it, but I got to no time to do a proper one so I'm leaving my thoughts with you to expound on in the beautiful way you always do: (part 1/3)

(direct quote from my reply) “supaliaxpress on tumblr has a post on that, and I agree with her completely. i dont mind it. one basically, the male is a soul somewhat frozen in time. it’s not established what his age really was when he died as a human being. his soul never aged, though time passed. and i think that concept and belief is proved throughout the drama.” (2/4. realized it could take much more space)

Lastly, to add here I think it’s one of the major themes of the story of Shin and Euntak, and even with Wang Yeo and Sun. The love that carries on with the soul, and that love binds more than bodies- love, true love, binds souls. Despite the age, the social standing from where each party comes from…love overlooks these differences and is founded by something more profound. And that souls, who lived life with care, never really “age”.

Ah, I think you said it perfectly :)

The topic of the “age gap” is something I’ve been questioned many times and I always refer people to this post about pedophillia whenever that topic comes up, lol. Anyways, there’s really not much to attack about the age gap since it was PERSONALLY addressed in the drama itself… yes… the writer acknowledged the “ridiculous age gap” between Kim Shin and Ji Eun-Tak… an age gap of 900+ years >.> Now… really, the age gap doesn’t matter in their relationship because, like you said, Shin is in a state of “frozen time.” He’s an immortal for goodness sakes. He’s gonna forever look like that in 20 days, 10 years, 1000 years, FOREVER. But what ticks me off is how people ALWAYS mention his actual REAL LIFE AGE… when his REAL LIFE AGE has fuckin no importance in the drama whatsoever… Just like Kim Go Eun playing both a 19 yo and 29 yo… BUT SHE’S 25. So… what is the real purpose of their age gap in the drama???

The age gap serves as an obstacle for Shin and Eun-Tak to overcome if they want to meet again in the next life; that’s why they FIRST met when she was 19 and MET AGAIN when she was 19 because this shows that Shin loves her no matter what age she is, who she is, and what she is. Shin doesn’t know at what age he will meet Eun-Tak (goodness… she could be a frickin grandma by the time they meet again >.> which I hope that never happens cause that’s sad), but this doesn’t change the fact that he loves her and she is his only and last bride. Like I’ve mentioned, Canada is a special place because it is a land known for acceptance… which is their love… she accepts him for who he is and vice versa. People forget that Eun-Tak also has to love and accept Shin for who he is… yes… he physically looks like a man in his mid thirties but she doesn’t see him like that… she only sees him as the man she loves – not numbers. Their love defies all aspects of numerical value that we hold highly in today’s society… aka. age and time. A love so deep and true that their love cannot be quantified. Therefore, NUMBERS DO NOT EXIST IN THEIR WORLD… THEIR LOVE STORY. 

Here’s a beautiful poem by Lang Leav that I think sums up Shin and Eun-Tak’s age difference… 

“What if I told you that one day you will meet a girl who is unlike anyone else you’ve known. She will know all the right things to say, what makes you laugh, what turns you on, what drives you wild and best of all, you will do for her exactly what she does for you.

“When will I meet her?”

“Well let’s put it this way, she doesn’t even exist yet.” 

~Lang Leav

In the end, age is just a number

We use numbers because we know how to make sense of them… 

However, we don’t know when we’ll find that person we want to spend the rest of our lives with…

We don’t know when we’ll fall in love…

We can’t tell ourselves to fall in love…

We can’t stop ourselves from falling in love… 

But when we do fall in love… 

When has love ever made sense anyways?
