Natsu never knows what to do with an emotional Lucy. He’s always like a deer in headlights, with Erza or Gray he usually starts a fight or makes a passing quip but with Lucy he doesn’t want to hurt her and doesn’t know how to placate her.
Natsu’s response is very similar to the scene where Lucy is telling Natsu off for leaving her and essentially hurting her.
This is one of my favourite nalu scenes, Natsu is insulting Gray for leaving Juvia and Lucy, my girl doesn’t put up with that, she basically responded with a ‘Bitch, oh no you didn’t! Your ass is sleeping on the sofa’ vibe. And Juvia knows ;)
Natsu, once again, doesn’t give her a proper response and deflects the conversation (he’s too chicken sh*t lmao). Natsu isn’t good with voicing intimate emotions, voicing his intent to kick ass is no problem. Telling Lucy he loves her, that’s an entirely different matter. Look at what happened after Igneel died, rather than talking about it with his friends and being emotionally vulnerable with Lucy he chose to run away. And he runs away in this scenario too.
Natsu isn’t stupid he knows Lucy and I believe him saying “We’ll always be together” is his way of placating her. He knows she’s a hapless romantic and saying things like that will turn her into a puddle of gooey mush lol
And she did, look at that blush, she went from livid to putty in his hands in seconds.

Move Aside by ayyyywhatsup, Explicit, 2.8k Sure, Yuuri’s seen Viktor nude more times than he can count. He’s pretty sure the man would become a full fledged nudist if he had the chance. That doesn’t mean Yuuri’s ready for the sight of Viktor wearing that.

The romantic writing of Dean / Cas (through deleted scenes)
OK, so full disclosure. This started as a simple answer but turned into a whole thing about TPTB and the meaning of deleted scenes and kind of therefore ended up as a Tink’s own small version of a masterpost of the writing of Destiel.
For me, deleted scenes are really important. They made their way to the DVD anyway so are part of canon, lets start with that. But they are deleted for a reason. And before that, they are though up, written, authorised, acted and edited for a reason.
For me the deleted scenes I list below are a big, core part of why I believe Dean and Cas are written romantically and that this is canon. Whether they decide to follow through on it is another matter but I and I know a lot of others agree that they are clearly written romantically and these deleted scenes uphold that. Then they are deleted. Now, some deleted scenes are for time but as you can see here, these scenes often hold key information regarding the overall narrative so clearly they are deleted because of the strong Destiel references. I like to believe this is because they just want to drag it out instead of completely get rid of it from the show, I was worried I’ll be honest before mid season 11 but since then I’m tentatively positive in that I believe the tides are turning and they will textualise Destiel properly and stop deleting these kinds of scenes, especially since season 12 has had so many similar scenes go through to the final cut…
The important deleted scenes for me regarding Destiel are:
1. The deleted scene from 10x23
Cas states clearly that his time on earth has been more important to him than any time in Heaven and Sam and Dean are like family to him.
As always Cas’s scenes that are just too emotionally compromising or hint too deeply at his feelings for Dean (even if Sam is lobbed in there too) are deleted, BUT this in particular has now been addressed in 12x12! So….fingers crossed?!
2. The deleted scene from season 9
THIS IS MY FAVOURITE, IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO THE WHOLE SHOW, to the whole of the narrative for Cas and Crowley.
This one scene just kills me as it sets up Cas and Crowley’s whole arcs for the whole show and yet it is deleted because, clearly, no homo. As otherwise it is an excellent scene to shed light on two of the core characters of the show and reveals their motivations for their actions, which is what a lot of the fans have struggled with, saying these 2 characters are stale.
In this scene Cas and Crowley discuss how they ‘dislike’ being human and how it’s so not worth it and why would you want to be human anyway (the underlying feeling being that they’re both lying and there is a reason they would like to be) - and then Dean immediately walks in and they share a glance. This is….. expositional screenwriting 101 ?
I mean this is a classic - in fact it reminded me so clearly of the opening scene of a classic romantic supernatural love pairing in the cartoon Beauty and the Beast - the narrator says “for… who could love a Beast?” - and it CUTS TO BELLE’s introduction…
And yet they cut this scene. And it means we don’t get a clear narrative reason why Cas and Crowley do what they do and are who they are, and casual viewers who don’t look into things as deeply as all of us are confused and think they’re stale and uninteresting.
Without this scene only people who really look into the show in huge detail, dorks like me, will know that Cas and Crowley are mirrors of each other and both their arcs up to a point revolve entirely around Dean Humanity Winchester.
Yes. That is what happens when you cut important scenes for a stupid reason, the whole show doesn’t make sense and fans get annoyed. *facepalms*.
There are probably people out there who think Cas still wants to be an Angel pffff because he said “I just wanna be an Angel again“ that one time. Yeah, that one time he thought Dean was dead and there was nothing left for him and he knew being a proper Angel would lessen his emotional pain and give him a purpose to focus on. But then, as soon as he learned Dean was still wandering the Earth he just… hangs around, pining, languishing in the blue bathrobe of despair, hoping to fix him.
And when he finally does get some grace back (FROM CROWLEY - these two are so interlinked Chuck help me what a great narrative if they actually showed it properly) he doesn’t WANT the grace, Crowley doesn’t really want to give Cas grace either but he does it FOR DEAN, and Cas, he allows Crowley to do it FOR DEAN. This then also reminds us how earlier on when Cas steals his first lot of grace Dean asks Cas if he’s cool about being an Angel again Cas deflects and says he needs it. Not wants it, but needs it to fight.
WHY does Castiel not want his grace back? WHY might Castiel have learned to love ‘humanity’? WHY might Castiel want to be human?
This scene is not only is great for it’s own individual reveal - Cas and Crowley jealously pretending they dont care about Dean and perhaps he is the other’s boyfriend, even using the term boyfriend, I mean, guys. Could this be clearer?
But this also just ties in to the whole end of the episode where Dean hands CAS the first blade instead of returning it to Crowley. HE CHOOSES CAS! THIS IS SO IMPORTANT (and is easily overlooked as it was deleted for *reasons*).
This, in an episode where Cas is clearly narratively paralleled as Dean’s Colette, where Dean is scared of losing himself and in a call-back to the season’s start and call-forward to the season’s ending Cas is desperately trying to save him and stop, to keep his humanity….
So, in conclusion…
There is a recurring theme of Destiel (and Drowley) - heavy scenes being cut and this is hurting the narrative of the overall show. It’s not that these relationship are written into the show to begin with that is the problem as they are key to so much of the overall story arcs but the fact that they are written in, used extensively as key points in the story while being kept in the subtext and then when there is an opportunity to make it textual to make it make SENSE to the narrative it is so heavily affecting, these scenes are cut.
*FACEPALMS SO HARD INTO MY KEYBOARD*
Why are they hurting their own show by doing this?!
So yeah, it’d be lovely if they actually showed these scenes that explains WHY things are happening to the casual viewer and Destiel shippers weren’t sometimes made to feel like we are grasping at straws.
Newsflash, it’s like a milkshake bar there are so many straws in this show, everyone involved knows about it and plays on it and CONSISTENTLY WRITES IT INTO THE MAIN NARRATIVE.
Just search Amara on my blog, the whole of season 11 doesn’t make sense without Destiel. If God’s sister herself reveals that Dean represents humanity after the fandom had that meltdown after Metatron’s ‘in love with humanity’ speech, DURING a scene interspersed with Metatron just to remind us ;) If God’s sister has to work through the Dean / Cas longing to reach Dean, uses Cas to manipulate Dean, keeps talking to Dean about love and hiding things, holding back, if Dean calls out to Cas while in Amara’s presence and pretty consistently only cares about Cas during these interactions where Amara is present, even though they themselves are bonded by the mark, one of God’s most powerful creations…. please.
And season 12 basically is one long Cas-focused parallel so they know what they are doing at this point. I want to trust Dabb but we have been burned before so… tentatively fingers crossed on this one now.
It’s just so freaking stupid to build a gorgeous story and through Chuck knows what, I like to hope it’s not homophobia but at these points I feel like what else can it be, they ruin their own narrative and make the story just flounder, not making a whole lot of sense because they are not following through on their own narrative and we are therefore MISSING INFORMATION!
We are tired of waiting for this all to make sense.
So I recommend anyone and everyone pay attention to deleted scenes. They are scenes that show that writers have noticed all the other subtext themselves in order to add to it, then thought about, written, acted out, edited and at the last junction been ripped out, and from these scenes it’s clear why, they all share a focal point - canonising or at least heavily clarifying the subtext between Cas and Dean and/or Crowley and Dean.
Because it is there, we are not insane. If it gets so far as to get acted out and left on the cutting room floor then it’s there and there’s a reason it’s been cut.
My feelings on the shitstorm that was the Supergirl event at SDCC 2017
One thing that upsets me the most about this SDCC Supergirl shitstorm is the fact that Melissa, the lead of the show that so many people look up to, whether they are children or adults, boys or girls, heterosexual or other, hasn’t even spoke about it. Jeremy has at least had the decency to apologise, even if the first one used the victim card, but now he’s actually speaking to the fans and listening to the real reason we’re upset. But Melissa, who is the lead, not only didn’t speak about it or apologise about it, she snuck out of the airport.
She is willing to hide from everyone instead of face this problem. How must that make all her adoring fans feel, the ones who looked up to her, the ones that idolised her, the ones who felt betrayed by her, how must that make all her fans feel when she won’t even speak to them about it, she won’t apologise or try to comfort the, she’ll ignore it and try to sneak out of the cause it means she won’t have to deal with it.
Honestly that gif of the little girl throwing her costume away is how I feel right now cause Melissa had always been my favourite actress. Not just because of what she has been in but from watching behind the scenes, interviews with fans she always seemed like a genuinely nice person, but the moment her fans are hurt, betrayed and upset, she runs away from them instead of to them. And now I can’t even think about her without being upset and I honestly don’t know if I want to continue watching the show. Even more so cause of Chris’ ‘sarcastic’ comment, David saying it was because they were tired and blocking anyone who doesn’t agree and Mechad telling Katie to shut up when she was talking, even if it was in Italian.
That’s another thing that upsets me cause if the reports are true. Katie was so upset that she travelled on a ordinary plane so she wouldn’t have to travel with her cast. That’s how much they upset her.
As someone who struggled with coming to terms with their sexuality, I am bisexual and for most of my childhood, I thought I was gay as I didn’t show a romantic interest in a girl until I was 14. I have always looks to Supercorp and Sanvers for comfort, but especially Supercorp, and what happened at SDCC made me feel silly, inferior and belittled just for shipping something that I knew 'was never gonna happen’ and made worse by Chris’ words, David’s tweets and Mechad telling Katie to shut up when she sided with the fans about how they should perceive it they want to.
Honestly I can’t think of the show, the cast (besides Katie, Odette, Chyler and Floriana) without getting upset, feeling sick now and I hate that cause I always enjoyed Supergirl more than any other DC CW show as I felt like I could relate to Kara as I have felt like an outsider all my childhood cause of my sexuality and personal history.
Disappointed is the word I can only use to describe my feelings right now cause I can’t think of any other word that could describe them accurately.
Oh, sleepovers. Nothing is better than spending a night with your bestfriends overdosing on junk food, laying around in your most comfortable and embarrassing pajamas and watching five movies in a row. Sleepovers can either be extremely relaxing or hard to recover from, but they are so funny and irreplaceable that I personally think there should be an international Sleepover Night.
Movies, obviously, are a must-be according to the Sleepover Bible (made up by me right now), but sometimes it can be hard to choose what to watch. I guess one of the best ways to decide is having a marathon or establishing a theme: you can watch the whole Harry Potter/Pirates of the Caribbean/Star Wars saga, go for a tv series like Friends or Grey’s Anatomy or follow a fil rouge that links together a few films.
What I’m proposing you today is one of my favourite themes: teen movies from 1990 to 2000. Beside being extremely funny and unmissable if you are a movie amateur, they definitely left a mark in the filmmaking history, defining a generation not so far in time from ours. They can also teach you something about style or pop culture, so you have no excuses left not to watch them!
People worshipped them and cursed them, but everybody wanted to be them .
In Jawbreaker you have all the ingredients for a classic teen movie: a high school, a popular and mean clique of Queen Bees, a kind-hearted girl loved by everyone, a prom, hot guys - with the only exception that this is not a classic teen movie.
Jawbreaker is a dark comedy and (surprise!) it involves a kidnapping, a death and police investigations. Written and directed by David Stein, the movie revolves around the “Flawless Four” of Reagan High School, Los Angeles: Courtney Shayne, Marcie Fox, Julie Freeman and Elizabeth Purr. They all rule the school with a terror regime, except for Liz. She is not as mean as her friends and makes no differences in relating with others - her beauty and honesty, then, make her the most loved and admired girl.
Obviously, this generates jealousy in Courtney, Marcie and Julie, who decide to prank their friend on seventeenth birthday, by performing a fake kidnapping. They take her off guard early in the morning, binding her with ropes and pushing a jawbreaker candy into her mouth. The girls lock Elizabeth in the trunk of a car and drive towards the mall to celebrate their friend’s brithday with breakfast. However, once they open the trunk, the sight is definitely not what they expected it to be…
Jawbreaker is worth watching not only for the twisted, surprising plot and the iconic (and definitely realistic) language used by the girls, but also because it explores the dynamics of a group of girls with the voice of an outsider, Fern Mayo, who finds herself involved in the events against her will. This movie is gonna make you laugh, startle and maybe regret not living in 1999.
Cruel Intentions (1999)
In the game of seduction there’s only one rule: never fall in love.
Drugs, sex, a hot step-brother, games of seduction, classy and total black outfits, rich mansions. If you like this list, Cruel Intentions is the perfect movie for you. Beside having an incredibly attractive cast, a young Reese Witherspoon included, its plot twists the usual “mean clique” dynamics.
Set in a wealthy Manhattan, the film is about an oddly assorted couple: Sebastian Valmont and his step-sister Kathryn Merteuil. He’s well known for his countless sexual conquers and seductive manners, which perfectly match Kathryn’s inner wickedness and malice - but they always both manage to get away with it thanks to their fascinating looks and charming attitudes.
The tight relationship between the two not only sees them accomplices in many misdeeds, but also gives rise to explicit sexual innuendos, as Sebastian’s not-so-secret fantasy is to sleep with Kathryn. Despite wishing the same, the girl likes to play it hard to get, so she decides to set up a bet: if Sebastian will be able to seduce Annette Hargrove, Kathryn will have sex with him - otherwise, she’ll get his vintage Jaguar. It’s not as easy as it seems: Annette is the daughter of their school’s headmaster and has recently written an article on saving her virginity for marriage.
As the time goes by and the relationship with Annette develops, Sebastian will find his controversial morals hardly tested. He’ll also have to manage the seduction of the young and naive Cecile, the new girlfriend of Kathryn’s ex, and he’ll be soon torn between his usual lifestyle and a wager maybe too hard to win, even for his unbeaten ego.
Cruel Intentions is weird, explicit, somehow shocking. It points out the differences between boys and girls as it comes to sex, providing a few interesting reflections under a chic, witty and dark atmosphere. Kathryn’s outfits are ICONIC and the movie will make you want more - and you’re lucky, because there are a prequel and a sequel.
Dear diary, I’m more fabulous than five minutes ago.
I don’t even know how to start with this and if you’ve never seen Clueless before… oh my gosh, you can’t imagine what you’ve missed. This movie is p-e-r-f-e-c-t!
Yes, we have a Queen Bee, Cher, with her sidekick Dionne. And yes, she’s vain and superficial. But she is funny, gorgeous, good natured, harmless and extremely relatable. You could easily make any quote from her character yours, really. She’s crazy wealthy and lives in a mansion in Beverly Hills, obviously being the most popular girl at school.
The movie explores Cher’s life and her attempts at making “good deeds”, showing how her attitude is more innocent than biased. She decides to give Tai Frasier, a “tragically unhip” girl, a makeover aimed at initiating her into the popular universe of their high school; she tries to act as cupid and match two professors (also to raise her grades); all of this, just for the sake of “giving back to the community”.
Cher’s hilarious adventures continue as she finds herself facing a new, attractive boy at school, her annoying stepbrother, the driving license exam and other teenage things we’ve all been through. I loved this movie because she’s fierce and self confident in a positive way, for once - and I won’t even mention the outfits of almost every character, which I’ve seen more than once reinterpreted in the latest collections of many fashion brands. And let me add that Alicia Silverstone’s facial expressions are the best thing in the world… In a few words: watch it. You won’t absolutely regret it.
The Craft (1996)
“You girls watch out for those weirdos” - “We are the weirdos, mister”
Everyone loves a bit of magic. Candles, chanting odd words, summoning the supernatural, meeting in the middle of the night - all things you probably don’t do but that still sound fascinating and attractive, especially if you are a young girl with a mysterious past in a new school where you know no one.
This is how it goes for Sarah Bailey once she arrives to the catholic academy of St. Benedict, Los Angeles. A group of outcasts, with difficult, gloomy lives and
rumored to be practicing witchcraft, notices that Sarah is not as normal as she seems, thus luring her into joining their coven. The powers of the four girls reach a whole new level as they try to fix their messy lives and make up for any wrong that had been unfairly done to them.
However, nothing is easy when it comes to unearthly powers - the group will face difficult personal struggles and they will soon understand that everything comes with a price.
This thriller will open your eyes on the hard life of social rejects in a surreal way, making you think twice before exposing someone not as lucky as you - you never know what may be their revenge. I loved The Craft because it explores a different side of the world depicted in the movies listed above - it gives voice to the unheard and shows things from a different point of view.
10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
But mostly, I hate the way I don’t hate you, not even close.
Sisters can be so different. Take Bianca and Kat Stratford, for example. One is popular, beautiful, admired and elegant, the other is a smart, casual, ironic bookworm. Cameron James (and adorable Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is head over heels for Bianca as soon as he sees her, but he’s warned by a friend that the girl’s father doesn’t allow her to date anyone. This doesn’t only upset Cameron, but Bianca as well - that’s why before the prom she quarrels with her dad until he agrees on letting her go at one condition: Kat has to find a boyfriend and go to the prom, too, causing Bianca to become furious since her sister will never want to be with someone.
Cameron finds out about the new rule and decides to find a boy who will date Kat, so then he’ll be able to go out with Bianca. The mission seems impossible, but of course we have Heath Ledger, in the role of Patrick Verona, who once again becomes the hero and (obviously with a heavy salary) agrees on trying.
Will the mission stay professional? Will Kat resist to Patrick’s charm or will she be trapped by the good-looking outcast as bitter as she is? Will Bianca go to prom with Cameron? You need to watch the movie to find out. This is one of my favourite ones, I’ve seen it at least three times and it’s just great - I always like watching the development of a romantic relationship, because each one is different from the other. And the singing scene on the bleachers? Iconic.
Do I even have to say something?? I mean, Leo DiCaprio, Shakespeare’s most known masterpiece, love and death, Baz Luhrmann. This is enough, isn’t it?
Romeo + Juliet is the modernized and adapted version of the famous, tragic love story. It’s visionary, surreal, heartbreaking and it should be seen at least once a week because it’s just too much. It is set in a imaginary Verona Beach, where the adventures and deeds of two families in war intertwine with the forbidden love affair of a young boy and girl. The plot follows Shakespeare’s script, but you won’t find swords or horses. Guns and sportscars, gas stations and a swimming pool are just a few of the innovative twists Luhrmann has used in this dreamy and loud film.

One of my favourite scenes in the tokuten drama cd that came with the Sofmap bonus of Lunatic Parade and which I’ve always had an urge to translate. Kanato and Azusa are working as waiters and here Azusa tries to teach a less than impressed Kanato how things are done (❀ฺ´艸｀)。*
Please do not repost this translation anywhere.
Azusa: Okay, Kanato-san…. follow me…. and say the same things… I say. When you receive… the customers’ orders… you come back here… and then… face the kitchen… like this: “Table number 3… mille crepe and… warm coffee.”
Azusa: Um… was that… fast? Then… once again: “Ta… b… le… num…ber…. thr…ee…” …um… “mil…le… cr…e…pe… and… ”
Kanato: Ahhh, geez!! You talk too slow!! “Table number three, mille crepe and hot coffee”, this will do right?!!
Azusa: Ah… Kanato-san, that’s amazing… You’re full… of enthusiasm…
Kanato: You’re wrong. It’s because your way of doing things is terrible.
Azusa: But… like this… the communication of the order… is perfect… right? We can proceed… to the next step.
Thank you so much! I tried to make something of a list, I assumed you meant Voltron but you didn’t specify more, so, here are a couple. I only put down finished works but granted there is wonderful fics in work right now too!
The Midgar motorcycle chase scene in FF7 was always one of my favourite parts of the game, I think the music + the concept of driving a motorcycle while swinging a bigass sword always seemed PRETTY DANG COOL to younger me, haha! This was reaaaally rushed though so I will probs come back to the “80′s neon motorcycle chase” concept with Cloud again sometime. :’)
↳ The Doctor distracts the Cybermen from the fact that he is picking up his sonic by being dramatic™
One thing I love about Twelve’s era is how much it gave us a look into how the doctor thinks. He doesn’t always have a plan but can improvise so well that it seems as if he can survive anything. This scene (although not necessarily my favourite of his entire run) for me forms the subtle culmination of this exploration of the doctor’s mind. Because, while when the doctor says he has a plan he is lying to you, if he appears to have lost and finds himself surrounded by an army of Cybermen looking at him, you can bet that he’s exactly where he wants to be.
Here’s why you need to watch Stick It (2006) right now immediately
If anyone’s looking for a fantastic movie to watch then Stick It is the movie for you
It’s not about getting the guy, or becoming pretty, or being the best or winning. It’s about girls being themselves. It’s about girls being stubborn, and messy, and broken, and strong, and young, and finding their way and being who they want to be and not letting anyone tell them otherwise. It’s about girls standing up for each other and changing a system rigged to tear them down from the start and those are the reasons it’s my favourite movie (definitely one of).
So if you need a movie with amazing stunts, a beautiful message, that’s going to make you feel good about yourself, that doesn’t show it’s women as ‘sexy’ despite the fact that they’re always wearing skin tight leotards, and in which at no point is a man the main character in a scene then watch it right now immediately!
