Today Sony Animation’s The Emoji Movie opens in theaters. Now after seeing the trailers and the hideous Rotten Tomatoes score some people might be tempted to go see it “Just to see how bad it is”. Well to that I say, don’t.
The main reason being if you go to see it in theaters, even if it’s for that reason, you’ll be supporting the film, you’ll be giving the film money. When you give a film money that’s basically telling the film company that you’re willing to pay to see that movie, to a movie company that basically says “Yes, I want more of this please” and they’ll end up making a sequel and making more films similar to The Emoji Movie, which is obviously not what people want.
So unless you’re a film critic and it’s your job to see this film, or you actually legitimately think it looks good and want to see it (because I guess there’s at least one person out there like that (I won’t judge)), then don’t go see it.
To sum this up, I’ll leave you with the words of critic Jay Sherman.
So, last night I rewatched The Way He Looks (Hoje Eu Quero Voltar Sozinho), and of the million and one reasons why everyone should watch this movie, here are a few:
This is Gabriel (left) and Leo (right)
It’s on netflix, which most of you probably have, so it’s accessible
How many queer stories are there that feature a protagonist with a disability? Not many, but this one does! Leo is blind, he’s the main character, and I feel they handled his disability well (this is coming from a non-disabled person, though, so feel free to disagree)
It’s a pretty stereotypical indie teen romance movie, but the queer aspect already makes it 100x more interesting
a realistic parent-child relationship, with bonus awesome grandma
there’s no “omg, am I gay???” freak out. In fact, both characters are pretty much 100% ok with being into each other, and they’re main worry is “i don’t know if they like me back, but i know i want to stay friends with them at least, what do i do??” with a tiny sprinkling of jealousy, cause, well, stereotypical teen romance
a very beautiful and loving girl-boy friendship with lots of casual, platonic intimacy
there’s nothing super angsty?? like, no death or super homophobic parents/classmates or having to hide that they’re queer. it’s honestly such a feel-good movie???
what homophobia there is, it comes as teasing and there are never any hints of anything turning violent, and in fact, at one point, when the bully character is teasing Gabriel and Leo for being boyfriends, Leo shows him that they are, in fact, real-life boyfriends, and the bully’s friends start teasing him for trying to make fun of them when they’re actually boyfriends
the girl best friend isn’t narratively pushed to the side when the new boy (love interest) comes in. In fact, her (Giovana) and Leo’s friendship is shown to be just as important as Leo and Gabriel’s relationship
everything works out and you’re left with a lovely, sweet, happy ending that’s honestly just so nice to see in a young queer romance???
I really love this movie, and there’s also a short-film!! on youtube that I recommend, too!
Why Moana is perfect for Kingdom Hearts (MOANA SPOILERS)
So, I am gonna explain this with the idea that you already know about Kingdom Hearts logic and how things work with the game.
At the start of Moana, Maui steals the heart of Te Fiti which then causes Te Fiti to decay and the evil that is Te Ka is summoned and tries to take the heart away from Maui.
Fast forward a bit and we have Moana here, her duty is to escort Maui across the sea and have him return the heart back to Te Fiti. So towards the end of the movie Moana is actually the one returns the heart but not in the way they originally thought they needed to. It turns out Te Ka is actually Te Fiti, but the shell of Te Fiti without her heart, you can probably see where I am going with this. So…
By Kingdom Hearts logic, Te Fiti lost her heart and due to this Te Ka was formed, Te Ka is Te Fitis nobody. And when somebody loses their heart a heartless is formed, but where is the heartless?
Te Fiti is the mother island who gave life to the earth, so by her heart getting removed (which is the source of her power to give creation/life) the earth begins to decay/turn black. The remnants of the earth is the heartless, not in the traditional sense for Kingdom Hearts but you get the idea.
Another strong similarity between the two is when the heart of their world (Heart of Destiny Islands and Moanas world itself) lost its heart they both began to plunge into darkness/break apart in almost exactly the same way.
SO YEAH. Moana needs to be in Kingdom Hearts and it will be such a missed opportunity if it is not. Sora is also an islander as well and I am sure he would love to see the water/some islands again after being away from his home for so long.
“I think that if I had not been Asian, I probably would have a whole plethora of roles, at least to audition for, but it’s just not what has been written” he tells TheWrap
Steven Yeun took a big leap of faith back in 2005, deciding that instead of pursuing a proper — and lucrative — career, he’d instead move to Chicago to try his hand at acting.
The risks here were twofold: First, it is of course remarkably difficult to forge and sustain a career as a working actor — and it is exponentially more difficult to do so as an Asian-American.
Exhibit A: Yeun is one of the most important cast members on the biggest show on television, “The Walking Dead,” and he’s still fighting hard to earn the sort of auditions that reflect his success.
“People ask, ‘So, how are the roles now? You must be getting so many.’ And it’s like, I don’t know if you know, but I’m Asian still,” Yeun told TheWrap earlier in July, laughing. “It’s not a complaint, that’s just how it is now, and I have to forge my own path through it and see that through. I think that if I had not been Asian, I probably would have a whole plethora of roles, at least to audition for, but it’s just not what has been written.”
It almost seems as if Hollywood is going out of its way to avoid Asian actors, when movies based on mangas are cast with white leads (see: “Speed Racer” and “Dragonball”), Asian movies being remade with white actors (“Oldboy”), and white actors actually playing Asians (“Cloud Atlas”and “The Last Airbender”).
Yeun’s first film role, as a scientist and best friend to Michael Pitt in “I Origins,” is a good start. The part doesn’t cast him as a nerdy sidekick, as so many other scripts call for; Yeun’s Kenny is a smart and slick core character who offers a lot of the comic relief in Mike Cahill‘s very serious film, undercutting the self-seriousness that Pitt presents.
The freedom to choose how he’d play a character — in this instance, he wanted Kenny to be refined — is not a luxury that Asian actors often enjoy. So instead of scouring scripts and casting calls for chances to quietly tweak cliches, Yeun is simply developing his own material.
First comes an adaptation of Kang Chol-Hwan's memoir “The Aquariums of Pyongyang,” which among other htings, details the author’s childhood years living in a North Korean concentration camp. Yeun will executive produce and star in the film, playing the author.
There are several other projects in the pipeline for Yeun, as well, early in development.
“We’ve been working on some comedy stuff and in cartoon form, as well,” he revealed. “And then there are some film ideas that have always been batting around my head. I just want to definitely stretch that muscle, because you can’t just wait for other people to give it to you.”
Initially, when we had the issue of Finn starting out as a stormtrooper, I said to JJ, “What’s he gonna be in? The armour is thick enough where he could actually have on anything.” And JJ said, “Yeah, that would make sense, except he’s going to be dressed all in black.” And I said, “Yeah, but he’s in the desert, so he could get very, very dusty so that we don’t see our hero in totally black clothes for the whole movie.” So that seemed to work with the pants and shirt got dustier and once he puts the jacket on it’s somehow a complete costume change.
“So how long are you
going to be acting like a complete brat?” He dictated, his body now pushing
away from the fence and now standing in front of you. His body leaning into
yours that pushes against the fence even more than before.
“Until you decide to
leave me alone,” You state, head falling to the side as you do your best to
look unfazed by how close he is, and how his cologne just makes you want to
wrap your arms around him and push his body against yours so you can press your
lips against his.
“Well that’s going to
be shit luck for you because I’m never going to be leaving you alone.” He
answers, lips tugging into a smirk as you feel yourself just completely cave
in. The new found information that Luke won’t give up his tantalizing ways just
to get you, has your mind in the gutter and the butterflies in your stomach
just to buzz around more intensely then before.
A/N: inspired by the scene with kevin and the southside serpent, joaquin, from Riverdale
The sound of laughter
and energetic conversations rattled off of your beige locker and flutters in your
ears, along with the sound of sneakers smacking against the dirty hallway
floors and the shutting of the exit doors being heard from where you are
standing packing school work in your bag.
It was finally Friday
and you’re buzzing with joy, you had nothing to do today but just to lay in bed
and sleep. Not every day did you get a chance to take a nap after school, you
always had something to do; go to your volleyball practices or go to your after
school clubs and sometimes help tutor some of the kids on your street. You’re
always busy and today you get the chance to finally rest.
So when you finally
dropped your purple binder into your backpack and zipped it up a pleased sigh
slipped out of your nose and into the energetic atmosphere, you let your hands
tug away from your sliver zipper and close your locker before letting your body
rest against it, the cool material causing your heated up body to chill for a
“What are you doing?”
You hear a voice ask, that causes your eyes to turn away from the white tiles
and turn towards the voice. Samantha’s copper hair trailed down her shoulder
and rested by her rip cage, her hazel eyes looking at you with question as one
of her makeup filled eyebrows rose up on her forehead as her lips covered in a
deep red colour was set in a straight line as she looked at you with
“It’s finally Friday!” You
sing, eyes closing for a moment as you let your head tilt against the locker and
letting a smug smile tug on your lips. You watch as Samantha rolls her eyes before
she leans against the locker next to yours, lips tugging into a smug smile a
like yourself as her eyes glaze over with humor.
“So what?” She says, her
cranberry lips moving as her words trail out of her mouth and smacks you in
your face as you let your jaw drop and look at her with complete shock.
“So what! So what! Sam!
I literally don’t have anything to do today. I don’t have volleyball, I don’t
have any clubs to go to and I don’t have to tutor the kids on my street.” You say
with excitement as a smug smile escapes your lips and a happy smile sets in
“God the kids on your
streets are such brats.” Samantha grunts while rolling her eyes before shaking
her head at you. “Anyways that’s not even the point, did you hear about what’s
happening to The Twilight Drive-In?”
She asks, both of her eyebrows rising up on her forehead as she stares at you
“No?” You state while
shrugging your shoulders, head titling off of the locker and body turning to
face Samantha as she rolls her eyes once again at your answer.
“How do you not know?”
She questions, voice filled with aggravation as a laugh trails out of your
“You know if you
continue to roll your eyes like that, they’re gonna get stuck.” You inquire,
only making her roll her eyes again before taking her hand off of her blue
denim jeans and rising it up to your cheek, her thumb running against your skin
and caressing it.
“Please don’t be a
smart ass.” She says, a fake smile on her deep lips as you watch her gold
earrings dance around with her shaking head.
“Fine, then all be a
dumbass.” You scoff, your body leaning off of your locker as you let your arms
interlock with each other and rest along your chest.
Samantha pulled her hand
away from your cheek and let her eyes flicker shut, her breath coming out heavy
as you watched her lips silently count to ten before her eyes re-opened and
look at you like she wanted to snap.
“Did your therapist
tell you to do that whenever you’re annoyed?” You question, your right foot
shifting away from your left foot which causes your hip to pop out as you look
at Sam with amusement.
“Yes she actually did,
now when you are done with your… irritating responses I would like to finish
what I was about to say.” She says, her lips tugging into a smile as she lets
her high heeled boots smack against the tile floor to an unknown beat.
You say while tearing one of your hands away from your chest and flicking at
“As I was going to say,
The Twilight Drive-In is shutting
down so tonight is the last night to see a movie there and also make out with a
hot guy in the backseat of his car like in Grease.”
She beams, her pearly white teeth showing as her eyes glow with happiness and
excitement which only causes you to groan and smack your head against your locker.
“Sam… I don’t wanna
go!” You cry, a painful expression washing over your facial features as you
look at her like you’re going to die.
“Why not?” She asked,
voice annoyed as she looked at you like she wanted to kill you on the spot.
“Because it’s Friday!
My only free day in this whole entire month! And also, you are most definitely
going to find some guy to make out with and just neglect me.” You rush, eyes
rolling as you look at her with bewilderment.
“That’s so false and
you know that!” Samantha exaggerates while her jaw drops and her hands tug away
from her sides to slide onto her hips.
You just let your eyes
roll as you stare at her and shake your head, Samantha knows for a fact that
she would do something like this so you decide not to even encourage the
conversation even more, instead you let your head turn away from her gaze and look
down the hallway where people continue to flutter out of to leave school.
It was blond hair and
piercing blue eyes that had your heart hammering against your chest and eyes
looking all over the place, your hands grew sweat between the cracks of your knuckles
as you felt your whole entire face heat up just at the sight of him.
fuck like… there was a female superhero-led movie that actually showed a complex and dynamic, not overly sexualised woman. hell, women. lots of kickass amazing diverse women. and now we’re getting a whole movie of mostly black characters next year with an entire guard force made up of awesome kickass women. like i know there’s a long ass way to go towards equal representation but jfc am i emotional over this!! honestly this would never have happened back when i was growing up but now kids these days get to go to the cinema and see this shit and it’s so wonderful i want to cry
happened two nights ago, so I’m still replaying it over and over in my
head. I thought this would be a good place to share. I’m a pretty
predictable person, with a predictable schedule, so I’m not sure if this
was a random occurrence or if someone knew my nightly routine.
Elizabeth Swann is easily one of the very top few fictional characters I consider a role model alright.
And if you think about it, she was more of a pirate than Will Turner like the movies led us to believe.
She was resourceful as all hell. Almost the exact same to Jack, but with some differences. While jack had the ability to see things 10 steps ahead and make fully thought out plans and be able to just watch everything fall into place, Elizabeth had the ability to adapt and evolve with new obstacles. She could maneuver situations in ways that almost no other character could. She even outplayed Jack fucking Sparrow. On more than one occasion if I might add.
She was well educated. And not like with maths and sciences and philosophy and shit like that. I mean educated in the way that she understood exactly how others thought and how they were most likely to act, and played them accordingly. She had educated herself on the pirates code well before even thinking of setting foot on a pirate vessel, and knew it well enough to save her neck or someone else more than once.
Now on to the more “pirate-like” shit.
She didn’t originally know sword fighting, but in the first movie she goes to grab a decorative sword off the wall in her manor (which doesn’t work, for comedies sake, but moving on) with the intention of fighting the pirates ransacking her home. Not run, like literally everyone else in the manor, but actually fight. Two men versus one untrained woman I might add. What a queen. But during the second movie we learn that Will taught her the art of sword fighting. And she very clearly was an excellent student, for throughout the next two movies we see her go toe-to-toe with several badass and notorious pirates, and easily hold her own. And if she didn’t have access to a sword, she made do and made a weapon out of whatever was near her at the time.
When her wedding got crashed and she and Will arrested, Will was told to find Jack in order to gain them both freedom again, and so he set off to do so. Elizabeth on the other hand, with some assistance, was able to escape prison, and then proceeded to hold the man who arrested them at gunpoint until he gave her signed and sealed papers containing the pardon they needed.
She also later figured out that the Kracken was really after jack, and knowing he wouldn’t give himself up for the good of the others, she kissed him long enough as a distraction at the last minute to handcuff him to the mast, effectively becoming the only person to be able to kill Jack Sparrow.
She also knew the power of carefully made lies and crafted deception. She knew being a woman could get her certain places and certain perks, so she made it work in her favor. She knew the same but with being a man, so she figured out how to also make that work in her favor. She was mistake for a feared sea goddess, and instead of denying it, she rolled with it knowing it would be to her benefit. Which it did, considering it then aided in her achieving the status as captain of a pirate ship later on, and in effect earning her a place as a Pirate Lord. And then was voted in as the Pirate King.
She used every piece of knowledge and tools accessible to her as intelligently as she could. She crafted lies and deceptions to work to the advantage of herself and/or her companions. And she never apologized for these actions or for being anyone but herself.
Will thought and planned more in reference to his heart or sometimes rash feelings. Elizabeth was an analyzer and thought and planned through both logic and impeccable gut feeling.
Elizabeth Swann was one of the best pirates in this whole series, and no one can tell me any different.
Summary: Dealing with the aftermath of heartbreak and not talking to Peter for 2 weeks causes the reader to not want to go to homecoming, but MJ forces her to go and the events that happen there may turn the worst 2 weeks to the best 2 weeks of her life.
Warnings: Minor swearing, angst, make out
Word count: 2,589… I got a little carried away whoops
It’s been two weeks since the incident on the rooftop. I haven’t talked to Peter since then. At this point, I could barely look at him without bursting into tears. The truth is beside Peter I didn’t have any friends besides Michelle. I didn’t exactly tell her what happened, but I’m pretty sure she figured out it had to do with Peter. Ignoring Peter wasn’t incredibly hard since we lived in the same apartment. Just because I didn’t want to talk didn’t mean he didn’t. For the first week, he followed me around trying to talk to me. Of course, I had headphones and turned them up as loud as my ears could handle so I couldn’t hear his voice. At least he took the hint and stopped trying to start a conversation. Now he just stares at me. All of the time. I swear he keeps playing this game. Doesn’t he get he already won? The more he looks at me the more my heart breaks. At this point I’m numb. Why the hell did I fall in love with him? I’m such a fool.
“Are you going to tell me what happened between you and Peter or are you just going to sit staring out the window looking like you’re about to cry everyday” I heard Michelle say nonchalantly.
“It’s a long story MJ” I replied
“Good thing this homework we are working on isn’t due tomorrow,” She said putting the books aside.
“I don’t really want t-”
“You can’t keep this to yourself any more Y/N I’m seriously getting worried, I’m not a doctor, but I know hiding something that made you this upset for too long isn’t smart,” she said interrupting me
“He broke my heart” I whispered, tears beginning to fill my eyes as my mind replayed the events of the worst night of my life.
“He doesn’t deserve you Y/N, if he doesn’t see how amazing you are he’s blind, and a fucking idiot to be honest, Do you want me to beat him up for you because I’m totally willing to do that because I hate assholes”
“Oh my god, thank you MJ” I laughed, I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve laughed in the past 2 weeks. MJ may be very shy and unsocial, but once you get to know her she’s amazing. To be completely honest her attitude, in general, is enough to cheer me up. She’s so different and honestly an inspiration. I’m so grateful for her because without her I know this whole Peter thing would be much worse.
“I’ll beat him up in front of the whole school during homecoming” MJ giggled clenching her fists and holding them up like she was going to fight someone.
“You know I’m now going to homecoming, right”?
“Excuse me yes you are, you will not let Peter Parker ruin some of the best moments you’ll ever have in high school. You shouldn’t let him have that power over you, and even if he does don’t let him see that”
“But I can’t bear to see him dancing wi-”
“So don’t look at them, find your own boy to dance with, there will be tons of handsome lonely boys looking for a beautiful girl like you to dance with, you are a strong independent girl and you don’t need Peter Parker to make your life complete, and come on if I agreed to go to homecoming that says a lot since I’m probably the most unsocial person on the planet and I need a friend to come with me so I’m not alone, please come Y/N I’m practically on my knees begging you” MJ blurted. She was right, I can’t let Peter control my life.
“Fine I guess I’ll go but for you,” I said
“Yay! I’m so excited” she exclaimed giving me a hug, good thing I had bought a dress. I would have to wear my one from last years homecoming and to be honest, I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t fit.
For the rest of the night, we ate ice cream and watched funny chick flicks and I forgot all about Peter until she had to leave. As much as I don’t want Peter to control my life, but I can’t bear to see Peter dancing with Liz. I think my heart would shatter into a million pieces. I went to the bathroom to brush my teeth and I looked at myself, I honestly looked like a mess. I had bags under my eyes, my eyes were puffy from crying so much. Why was I letting Peter Parker ruin my life? I should never let a boy ruin my life. I have so much more than Peter Parker. If this game was to break my heart. I shouldn’t let him win. I have to stop moping 24/7 and actually live. Even if I don’t have a date to homecoming it doesn’t mean I won’t find a lonely boy to dance with. After all, it’s completely possible to fall in love more than once. I’m not going to let Peter win. Somehow I managed to find some confidence. It’s time to be my old self again I thought walking from the bathroom. I walked into my room and jumped into my bed and swiftly pulled the covers over me. Tomorrow is a new day, a new me. No more crying over Peter Parker I thought as I drifted into a nice well-needed slumber.
I woke up to the sound of my alarm clock, scaring the shit out of me like it always does. I groaned turning off my alarm clock and getting up to walk to my closet to find clothes. Lately, i’ve been wearing sweatpants and a sweatshirt to school every day, but that was going to change. I grabbed a pair of skinny jeans and a nice shirt and skipped to the bathroom.
“Why are you so cheerful today honey” I heard my mom say as I skipped past the kitchen to get to the bathroom.
“Homecoming is today, and you know how much I love to dance mom” I practically sung as I closed the bathroom door. Today I needed to show confidence. I needed Peter to know I wasn’t going to mope over him forever. I caught him staring at me countless times this week. I hope showing him I’m getting over him will make him jealous. Wait. no that’s not the point of this I mentally yelled at myself as I grabbed eyeliner and mascara. After I finished putting on makeup, I slipped on my clothes and grabbed my pair of black converse.
“You look cute today Y/N” my mom pointed out.
“Thanks, mom” I answering grabbing my backpack and giving my mom a kiss on the cheek.
“Your father and I aren’t going to be home for a couple of days, we have to go on a business trip, but make sure to send us pictures, I’m sorry we won’t be here,” she said, she obviously felt bad, but they did this all of the time.
“It’s fine” I lied as I walked out the door. A sigh left my mouth. I don’t know why they are always traveling I wish they could actually be home for one special event of mine. No wonder I’m closer to May than my parents, but I can’t see her without seeing Peter. Peter was usually the person who always comforted me when my parents would leave. I felt tears start to sting my eyes. No. I promised myself I would stop crying over him. I blinked away the tears and began walking to school. I walked kind of slow so when I walked in most people were at their lockers. What happened next was pretty weird. It felt like I was in a movie. Everything was going in slow motion and basically, everyone was staring at me. I mean I’m pretty sure it’s because the past two weeks I’ve acted like actual death and looked it too, but then again I didn’t think people noticed.
“Nice ass Y/L/N” I heard Flash say from behind me
“Shut it Flash” I warned, as he put both his hands up laughing. I right as I turned around I ran into someone which knocked me over making me land right on my butt.
“I’m so sor-” I cut myself off as my eyes met with the brown sparkling orbs of Peter Parker. He was holding out his hand offering to help me up. For some reason, I actually took his hand. I could feel my whole body tingling just from him grabbing my hand. He pulled me up, and I immediately let go of his hand brushing off my pants. I brushed the hair that was in my face behind my ear and stood up straight.
“I’m really sorry about that” I mumble looking down at my feet
“It’s okay” he insisted, I looked up at his face to see a bruise on his face that I hadn’t noticed.
“Oh my god Peter the bruise on your face, who did that to you”I whispered yelled
“It doesn’t matter, the bad guy just got a swing at my face” he stated
“You have to be more careful Peter” I cautioned.
“I am careful you don’t have to worry about me Y/N” he insisted
“Well I do,” I said louder than I wanted to. “I-I h-have to class” I interjected bowing my head and pushing past him to get to class trying to hide the tint of red on my cheeks. That was actually the first semi-normal interaction I had with him in 2 weeks and I barely embarrassed myself. The rest of the day went by pretty fast and MJ and I literally ran home so we could get ready. I went into the bath reapplying and putting more makeup on. I quickly stripped my clothes off and slipped into my dress. I looked into the mirror and I was actually happy with what I saw. I walked out to see Michelle in a beautiful blue dress.
“Dang M, how did you not get a date,” I said
“Well besides from the fact I don’t talk to people, I have no idea” she laughed
“Are you ready to go?” I asked
“Yep, it’s funny how both are always gone for the important things,” She said obviously upset her parents weren’t here too. I gave her a small hug and soft smile and we walked out.
We arrived at the school and walked into the gym. There were balloons everywhere the lights were dim and kids were dancing. MJ and I met up with Ned. I saw Liz walk in without Peter and I raised my eyebrow. I heard the doors open shortly after MJ and I made eye contact with his brown whiskey eyes. I felt like I was staring him for years until MJ pulled me away as Liz grabbed his hand. MJ grabbed my arm and pulled me over to a circle of basically the whole decathlon team dancing, but I still looked towards Peter who surprisingly still has his eyes on me. and I eventually I started to let go and dance to the beat. I felt good the music was upbeat and I was actually having a great time. I took a mental note that I owe MJ Starbucks for making me come to this. There were a couple songs and I dance one dance with Ned, and I even danced with Flash even though I hate him. There was only about 30 minutes left of the dance, and a boy named Isaac who I had couple classes with timidly walked up to me
“Y/N would you like to dance with me,” he asked shyly
“Of course” I replied grabbing his hand and pulling him to the center of the gym. I put my arms around his neck and he put his on my hips and we danced for 2 songs, but I could see and feel Peter’s eyes on me but he was jealous. I knew he was because I’ve known him my whole life and I definitely know when that boy is jealous. He has Liz so why he so bothered by me dancing with someone else.
“You’re distracted by something” he blurted out leaving me a little shocked.
“No, I’m just tired” I insisted
“Hey, look I’m pretty observant, but I’m pretty sure anyone could tell you like Peter Parker a lot more than a friend, and I’m 99.9% positive he feels the same way” He explained
“He is with Liz, he likes Liz, and I already told him how I felt”
“If you haven’t noticed he’s been staring at this whole dance right”
“So what that doesn’t mean anything” I signed looking at my feet.
“Like I said I’m very observant, and the way Peter looks at you is different than he looks at anyone else even Liz” he argued, and I laughed
“You should ask MJ to dance, you guys are very similar” I sighed, still looking at my feet. Soon the song Waves by Dean Lewis came on.
“I’m about to be proven right,” he said triumphantly
“Wait, what do yo-”
“You mind if I steal her for a dance” I looked to see Peter holding out his hand
“Absolutely” he replied winking at me. I mouthed “I hate you” and he put his hands up in defense walking away. Peter put his hands on my hips and I put mine on his shoulders. I couldn’t face him, I had no idea why he was dancing with me, or how Liz allowed him to do it. I was staring at his tie.
“You look really beautiful tonight Y/N” he commented quietly. Seriously is this boy trying to lead me on? What the hell does he want from me? I pushed him away.
“What kind of game are you playing Parker because I’m seriously sick of th-” I was cut off by him slamming his lips into mine, making my eyes open wider than humanly possible. My arms were at my side clenched and my whole body went tense. To be honest I could not comprehend what was happening, but eventually, my body relaxed and I wrapped my arms around his neck pulling him closer and savoring the way his soft lips felt on mine. We pulled away for air.
“Why did you do that” I whispered.
“Just because I was going to homecoming with didn’t mean I didn’t have the same feelings for you” He revealed bowing his head down. “I asked Liz to homecoming because I thought you didn’t feel the same way, I was going to tell you after that night, but you never really gave me the chance”. I was speechless, honestly, I didn’t know how to react to this, so I just hugged him engulfing his.
“I love you, Peter Parker”
“I love you too”
I guess this wicked game came out with both of us winning.
I hope you guys liked it! Feedback is seriously appreciated
because i can’t stop writing about my babies when i should be doing work
after lito finally tells hernando and daniela about the cluster, they agree to have a massive movie marathon so his new family can see what has made his old family proud for so long. lito finds he’s actually kind of nervous, the way he used to get back when he was first acting, before he had made a name for himself. neither daniela nor hernando are exactly sure what to expect, but they can tell when it’s no longer lito talking when an excited voice says, “i forgot you did action movies. this is just like jean-claude!”
when will decides he’s going to propose to riley, he also decides he’s going to do everything in his power to try to keep it as a surprise. one day, when she’s visiting with her dad who’s got another layover, he consults with nomi. (she’s the only one of them who’s ever proposed to someone, after all.) they only have so much time before riley will notice the excitement thrumming through nomi and will, so once he’s made up his mind, he knows it has to happen that day. with most of the rest of the money will has in his old saving’s account, he buys her a beautiful sapphire ring. (it’s blue, just like her, and more importantly it’s nothing like the ring magnus got her so many years ago.) what will and nomi don’t know is that at the same time, she has been explaining everything to her dad, wanting him to finally meet the other pieces of her heart who helped make her whole again. so riley and her dad show up, ready to finally begin introductions, when they open the door to find will down on one knee. (the rest of the cluster is off on the sidelines, not wanting to steal the spotlight.)
kala eventually gets wolfgang to watch bollywood movies with her. (by the time this happens, she has already convinced the rest of the cluster to sit through one with her at some point or another.) it’s not that he had never wanted to join her before, but wolfgang always worried that his time with her was limited. with all of the millions of things he wanted to experience with her, bollywood hadn’t exactly been at the top of his list. eventually, though, wolfgang starts to realize that maybe this thing with kala could last. maybe he can start counting his life in years, rather than just surviving each day. once he realizes that he might actually get to have a life outside of his horrible family, he gives in. kala doesn’t bring it up, but she knows what it means that he is finally willing to take the time and do mundane things together. the movie becomes one of their favorites.
felix loses his shit when he finds out about the cluster. at first, he’s hurt and kind of mad at wolfgang for leaving berlin without telling him. but it’s not wolfgang he’s talking to, it’s some random chick from iceland who’s speaking english and somehow got his phone number. and he wouldn’t believe her at all, if not for all the things she knows about him that he’s only ever told wolfgang. (and wolfgang may be many things, but he isn’t a talker. felix knows this woman must know his secrets for a reason.) he doesn’t get what’s going on yet, but he follows the woman’s instructions to go to the netherlands and find them in amsterdam. (it’s a six hour drive, but wolfgang sat by his hospital bed for a lot longer than six hours.) once he gets there, the icelandic chick (riley, he learns her name is) and several others start speaking to him, accents all varying wildly. at one point, he asks them to slow down, he can’t understand everything if they talk all at once, it’s been a while since he had to speak english. another woman, this one with an american accent, apologies for not speaking german with him, that usually they would but…. nomi realizes partway through the sentence that there really is no good way to finish that without explaining everything, so the cluster ends up just sort of blurting it out and doing their best to catch felix up to speed. he’s super confused, but doesn’t ask questions until after they’ve all rescued wolfgang. it’s only after his brother is safe that felix really freaks out on them. (“you’re a psychic and you didn’t TELL ME?” “i’m not a psychic.” “YOU HAVE CONVERSATIONS IN YOUR MIND WITH PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.”)
Before, I didn’t have the privilege to choose what I wanted to do. I just wanted to work. But now I’m in a position where I can actually choose. When I just started as an actress, you go to L.A. and the managers and the agency set up general meetings with directors and writers. They always ask you the same questions: “What are you looking for? What types of movie would you like to do?” And I always said, “I’m open.” I’m very open to all different genres because I’m a very open-minded girl. But eventually, I told them that I wanted to be able to show the stronger side of women. I didn’t want to do the obvious role that you see in Hollywood most of the time, which is the heartbroken girl who’s waiting to be rescued by the guy, blah, blah, blah. I wanted to do something different. Little did I know that I would land Wonder Woman not long after.
So this is a Valentine's Request! Every year on Valentine's Day, MC was either stood up on a date, or when she did go out with someone, she never felt a connection, so she has lost faith in the Holiday. The RFA+V+Saeran offer to take her out saying that it's keep her company, but they actually like her romantically and confess to her...
Thank you for your request sweetie! And i hope you like it!
VALENTINE’S DAY SPECIAL.
You don’t like Valentine’s day and Yoosung knows that…
But he doesn’t want you to spend this day alone…He doesn’t want to spend it alone too!
He’s your friend! Let’s go see a movie!
Oh yeah…It’s crowded with couples…That would be weird…
Let’s go to the park then!
And there it was, you two, on the bench.
You can’t help to notice that Yoosung is looking a lot to you, and he’s a little blushed too.
You’ll not ask why you know this would only make him redder.
You felt his hand on yours and you look at him, he takes his hand away quickly, redder than anything “I-I’M SORRY MC..!”
You just laughed, “That’s ok Yoosung…” You smile, and he’s just staring at you “So…Let’s go take a walk?” You get up.
But before you start walking, he holds your hand, getting up slowly, while you’re looking at him.
His finger interlock on yours, he’s looking at your eyes “MC…I know we’re friends…And you don’t like this day…But…I think it’s the perfect time to say…I like you MC…”
His tone shows how serious he’s right now, he’s getting close to you “…Please…Just give me a change…” He’s so flustered.
It’s so cute.
“I kinda like you too Yoosung…” You smile, now you’re red, looking to the ground “…Let’s go take that walk shall w–”
He kissed you before that.
This is the beginning of the forever.
Zen is so romantic, so you weren’t surprised when he called you to spend Valentine’s day with him.
You know he hates to be lonely at this date, but hey…You can be his company!
He’ll not shut up until you spend this day with him.
You guys go see a romantic movie, he’s pretty close to you, for you this is normal.
Zen always showed his affection.
He’s always hugging you, putting his hand on your waist, for you, this is what is normal for him.
But for him, he just can’t believe how you didn’t understand he’s trying to be with you!
WTF MC! HE DOESN’T PUT HIS HAND ON EVERYBODY WAIST!
Now you guys were walking to your house, while he was with a hand on your waist after you just saw the movie.
When you get there you just smile “Thank you for this day Zen…It was really good!” You were ready to enter your house, but Zen is in your way.
“MC…I don’t think all the signs i show to you made you understand…But i like you!…And i know you like me too!”
After that, he kisses you, you were surprised by it, but you kissed him back, he’s so happy by that…You two were finally kissing each other!
No, it’s not weird, you were his friends, WERE because now you’ll be his girlfriend!
When your lips parted from him, he just smiled, catching some air.
“…And how did you had so certain that I liked you?”
He laughs “Because…” You were expecting very romantic “I’m the best damn thing that your eyes have ever seen”
You laugh and give his shoulder a little punch, he laughs again, after that you just smile “Want to come in?”
Zen’s are head filled with this type of thoughts
One man, one woman…In the same house…Alone…THIS ISN’T RIGHT MC!!!
WHAT ARE YOU THINKING???!
You and she are like…Super close friends.
Jaehee likes you more than that…And she is afraid…You might not like her in that way.
You might not even like a woman.
She doesn’t like Valentine’s day that much too…But when she thought of the possibility to spend this time with you.
She needed to call you to go out.
You accept, and she’s super happy about it.
She wants to do everything together.
You guys watched some movie and after that, in the night you guys go watch a musical.
Her favorite actor is there, you know that you fangirl with her!
This night was so fun.
While you two were there cheering, she looked at you “MC I LIKE YOU” She yelled so you could hear.
You look at her, she was blushing, but you smile “I LIKE YOU TOO” You yelled back.
Jaehee sigh “I LIKE YOU…NOT LIKE A FRIEND…MORE THAN THAT!”
You laugh, jumping a little with all those people, and then you look at her, “THAT WAS WHAT I MEANT”
Jaehee stands still, surprise…
But then she smiles…
She puts her hand on your shoulder making you stand still…
And then she kisses you.
And you kissed her back.
When she stopped, she looks at you “This place is a mess! Let’s go to my place!”
She was with a large smile on her face, you can see the brightness in her eyes when you nodded.
Jumin is just so sweet with you.
You can’t understand people when they always talk about him being so cold.
He is always there for you.
When he called you to a restaurant on Valentine’s day you were surprised…
He is always working, but today he is free…And he wants to spend the day with you?
Just because he knows you’re alone too?
Well, you accept it anyway.
He said that Driver Kim was going to pick you up.
When you arrived, Jumin got a big smile on his face.
All the staff of that restaurant was finding it weird…Jumin Han so happy…
He’ll ask for the best things to you, and he’ll always compliment you.
Always with a smile on his face.
Even for you, this is weird, he’s smiling so much, and you can swear he blushed in one moment.
When you guys were finished, you and Jumin get out, smiling.
Everybody did not understand what the hell all this was…That was really Jumin Han?
And now you guys are in the car, while Driver Kim is taking you to your home.
Jumin said it was too dangerous to go alone.
When you arrive there, Jumin walks with you to the door.
You look at him smiling “That was really good Jumin…I really appreciate that…”
He smiles again “Me too MC…”
You laugh, “I could see it!You must really like that place”
Jumin sigh and then he got closer to you “…I didn’t like that place, i like you” You froze, blushing.
He got closer and closer and he gives you a little kiss, you kissed him back.
That kiss was filled with passion…And when both of you needed air, you stopped.
He looks at you smiling “…Can i see you tomorrow?”
You nod and you enter your house “See you tomorrow then…” You close the door.
Jumin opens his mouth smiling and look at Driver Kim, who has with his thumbs up.
Seven knows how you despite Valentine’s day!
But he kept asking you to out with him, even when he hates to go out!
He takes you to a nightclub.
You found it strange, but he reassures you “I’m coming here because i know you wouldn’t resist me in a place where is only us”
You laugh, oh that jokes…
He heard the music that was about to start, he grabs your hand walking with you to the dance floor, actually, he’s dragging you, with a happy smile on his face
“SAEYOUNG!” He pulls you for him, making your body collide with his body, you’re blushing so you look away.
He laughs, with a hand on your waist and the other one he grabs your chin, making you look at him “…Don’t you dare look back, just keep your eyes on me”
He laughs singing the song while he makes you look at him when your eyes met his…
Something made him get closer and closer, and then he’s kissing you.
You can feel a lot of passion in that kiss, but you didn’t move…
After some while he just looks at you, catching his breath, so then he felt a blame in his heart “…I’m so sorry MC…I thought you might like me too…I like you that’s why i kiss you…Oh, this was a bad idea…”
When he was about to run you laugh and then you grab his hand.
He looks at you and you smile at him “Shut up and dance with me”
He just smiles…Going back with you.
When he asked if you wanted to go out with him in this Valentine’s day you agree in the same minute!
V’s just too calm, and so gentle, so you just believe that he’s doing this because he pities you…Because you’re all alone in this day.
He can be alone too, but he doesn’t hate it like you.
He even finds it funny when you say you hate Valentine’s day.
That was cute, he called you…Well, he is cute.
He takes you to the museum on that day, after that he take you to an art gallery.
You know how he loves those things.
And to be honest, you thought all this would be so boring, but with him…It was more than pleasant.
After that, you guys go to a mall to see some things, and he wants to buy a new camera too!
But in the way, he saw a photo booth “Let’s go there MC!”
“IT’S FOR COUPLES!” You yelled, while he was dragging you, looks like he didn’t even listen.
When you enter there with him, you sigh laughing.
You guys were doing some poses, he looks at you while you were laughing and he just keeps staring at you.
When you two saw the photos…That was literally you doing poses and V was just looking at you “Why you were looking at me the whole time?” You laugh again “You were too cute MC…And i can’t keep my feelings to myself”
You look at him, and then you just give him a little kiss, he is blushing now “I’ll treasure this photo ” You laugh and then you start to walk.
V puts one of his fingers in his own lips “She kissed me…” He saw you walking “MC WAIT!” He starts to run to you “ I NEED TO KISS YOU BACK!”
Saeran hates this day too…But he likes you.
And maybe he will like this “holiday” after he starts to get closer to you…
You understand him, he can be neurotic sometimes…
But you understand him, you listen to him “whine”, sometimes he’s scared of himself…
But you’re never scared of him, you’re just so gentle…
He smiles when he thinks of you…He accepts it…
He likes you.
So when he called you to go to the park to eat some ice cream, you were surprised…!
He is inviting you and he’s saying is for you to not be alone today.
This is sweet.
And now there you guys are…Eating some ice cream.
Saeran looks like he’s blushing a little when you look at him, you don’t understand why but you smile with it.
After some time he looks at you, your mouth was a little dirty with the ice cream, he just got closer to you, and you froze with the surprise “Your lips are dirty…I’ll clean it”
He got, even more, closer to you, you can see now clearly…He’s blushing.
But before you could even ask him about that, he gives you a gentle and short kiss…After that, he looks at your eyes “…You’re the only person that i don’t want to kill…”
You widen your eyes even more “….Do you mean…You like me?”
He’s blushing even more “…Yes…” He said almost like a whisper, looking down “I’m sorry, what?” You laugh
He looks at you, grumpy “…I’LL NOT REPEAT MYSEL–” You give him a little and cold kiss, laughing, “Your lips taste like ice cream…We can do this every Valentine’s day now…!”
Ok…Now he has a girlfriend…And now he loves this holiday…
But he’ll have to wait for so long to give some ice cream kisses to you?
i;m literally going to end up needing to watch dunkirk at least 3 times before i end up actually capable of watching the movie because the first time i gotta be on High Alert to see harry in every frame and then the second time i have to actually appreciate him when i know he’s gonna be on screen and then actually the third time i’m gonna have to do that again so maybe on the fourth try i’ll actually be able to watch the movie
- we all know jeon wonwoo calls himself a bag of luck as a joke - but he really does starts believing he is one after meeting you - for your first date, he takes you out for a simple lunch, a walk in the city and then ice cream for dessert but since it’s summer and it’s hot out, your ice cream melts and stains your shirt - wonwoo sees how upset you are about it and offers to let you wash it off at the dorm since you guys are close by - so you go inside the dorm and all the other members are like “ooohhh wonwoo who’s that??” and wonwoo just laughs and tells you to ignore them - you’re waiting around in the living room while he leaves to go find something that could help with the stain, and you get a bit confused because the other members are nowhere to be seen - all of a sudden the lights go off and you hear wonwoo call your name and he’s like “(name)?? are you okay?? stay where you are i’ll be right there!! argh those guys i swear…..” - you slowly get up and try to follow the sound of his voice when you suddenly trip on something - but you don’t land on the floor…… you fall over someone and accidentally kiss them on the lips - the lights go back on and you and wonwoo immediately pull away out of embarrassment - that’s right, your first kiss is accidental but it’s a cute little memory you think of every now and then - but now whenever you both go on ice cream dates, wonwoo orders your ice cream in a cup so you don’t stain your clothes again how thoughtful right - always has on his glasses and sweater paws and you cry - blushes when you fix his glasses for him - lends you his big sweaters and gets flustered when he sees you wearing them like his face turns all red and you’re like ??? wonwoo are you sick ??? - bookstore dates!! - he likes to tell you his favorite passages from the books he reads - when he wakes up with really bad bedhair you don’t want him to fix it because you find it so cute and when he tries to you slap his hand away like NO KEEP IT LIKE THAT - “(name) i have to fix it i’m going to a fansign…..” “no.” - afraid of dogs so when he sees one he hides behind you who’s shorter than him like gooD JOB WONWOO - you always ask him to sing his solo part in “laughter/smile flower” because his voice is so deep and soothing wow - you both get matching plushie keychains for your bags - bumps into everything, honestly so accident-prone you have to keep band-aids on you at all times - wonwoo doesn’t normally open up to people because he’s so used to keeping things to himself, but he learns how to open up to you and now you’re his go-to person whenever he’s feeling down - he’s the type who doesn’t really want any advice or comments, he just wants someone who’ll listen to him - tells you his lame jokes and gets offended when you don’t laugh but when you do he looks so proud of himself afterwards - but sometimes he’s laughing too much while trying to tell you a joke which makes you laugh and when he finally tells you the joke you’re still laughing and he thinks it’s because of the joke he told you - his phone’s lock screen is a picture of you wearing his round glasses - made a playlist of all your favorite songs and listens to them before going to sleep - says “i love you” quietly because he’s shy and when you tell him you love him too and his face turns bright red - loves giving you back hugs - hangs up polaroid pictures of you two on his wall - loves watching movies with you and actually prefers staying at home to watch an old movie with you over going to an over-crowded cinema - but he doesn’t mind going to the movie theatres with you if there’s a movie you really want to see - he’s often really tired when you meet up because of his busy schedule so you let him sleep while you’re both on the train - while he’s sleeping, he holds onto your hand tightly and his head falls on your shoulder - you take pictures when this happens and laugh at his reaction when you show them to him later that day - when you’re lying on your stomach watching videos on your phone or something, he likes to crush you by rolling over your back - loses track of time when he’s with you and gets scolded by the other members for coming late to practice - when you share food, he always lets you have the last piece - tells mingyu all about you who pats you on the head and thanks you for making his best friend so happy - but then wonwoo sees mingyu pat you on the head and gets so protective of you after that - like he gives any member the look if he sees them get too close to you and they cower away lmao - wonwoo is shy so he doesn’t say “i love you” very often - but just know that he really, really does - there are different ways to show someone you love them - when he asks you about your day, if you’ve eaten; when he sacrifices sleep to go see you, when he hugs you tightly after not seeing you in a while or anything of the sort - that’s how wonwoo tells you he loves you - “you know what, (name)?” - “what wonwoo” - “you’re my won and only” - “…ok that one’s pretty good”
