bear scene

There are skies and then there are Blue Ridge Parkway skies. The southern end of the parkway in North Carolina winds through the highest elevations, offering dramatic mountain top views. When photographer Robert Stephens chanced upon this scene at Bear Trap Gap, he said “It almost felt like an out of body experience. You can’t believe what you’re seeing, but it’s there! I was so in awe of the light filtering over the ridges I had to remember to snap my shutter!” Photo courtesy of Robert Stephens.

More Behind the Scenes AU

-In the beginning, when they were still looking for someone to play the part of All Might, the director and crew didn’t even pick someone from the actors that tried out. They just saw Izuku getting dropped off by his blonde guy, promptly flipped because he WAS ALL MIGHT TO A T, and RAN over to ask him to try out.

-Toshinori was very surprised when he was nearly plowed over by a bunch of enthusiastic people asking him to try out as a character in the show. When someone asked how he knew Izuku, he just stammered, “well, I’m his father,” and that sent everyone into happy yelling again.

-Katsuki: “Does he always get this much fucking attention?”
Izuku: “No…”
Shinsou: “Izuku, let me know when your father leaves so I can get some sleep.”

-Toshinori ended up getting the part, of course. He was pretty happy with it, especially when he found out that All Might’s relationship with Izuku was meant to be so much like father and son. And then the actress playing Inko came up to shyly introduce herself to him and he was suddenly VERY happy about his new job indeed. Even if he was blushing stupidly and stuttering throughout his entire conversation with her.

-The first time Enji ever stepped on set to play Endeavor, he intimidated a lot of the teenagers. First of all, he was huge. Second of all, they all knew who he’d volunteered to play and weren’t sure whether he’d be bad-tempered or something. One of the first things he did was introduce himself to Shouto. It was quite a sight: this burly guy towering over Shouto while Shouto blinked up at him, a little nervous.

-Enji: “So, I guess we’re gonna be working together, huh?”
Shouto: “I— Yeah.”
Enji: “Well, I’m looking forward to it. Heard a lot of great things about you here.” And he smiles as he shakes Shouto’s hand and Shouto is left with a lot of relief and his ears tinged pink. He ducks his head and mumbles, “thank you. I look forward to working with you too.”
Enji turns to the director and pouts. “What the hell, how am I supposed to pretend I hate this kid?”

-Needless to say, they get along fine. Shouto would never admit it aloud, but his real father is out of the picture now, and he honestly wouldn’t mind if Enji really was his father. He has a lot of trouble acting in the scenes where Endeavor’s abuse is shown.

-Though he doesn’t have too much of an appearance in the second season, Shinsou stays with the crew almost every day. Even when he has nothing to do. Everyone asks him why he doesn’t just sleep at home, he does nothing but sleep here. His answer to that is, “Aizawa lets me sleep in his dressing room when he’s not there and that bastard dragged his own mattress in there.”

-Aizawa denies that he went through the trouble of hauling a mattress into his dressing room. The rest of them (mainly Kiri and Denki, who are nosy as hell) make it their personal mission to prove whether or not he’s lying. It’s going slow though, because everyone is a little scared of Aizawa.

-Hizashi, Aizawa’s friend and the actor of Present Mic, stole a megaphone on the first day on set and yelled in his best Mic voice: “DAY ONE GUYS!! WHO’S READY?!”

-Katsuki jumped and yelled “FUCK,” Izuku dropped his script, and Shinsou woke up shouting about how he was going to murder all of them for this.

-Hizashi never got to continue the countdown in the following days because Aizawa promptly snatched the megaphone from him and threw it into the trash.

Break-Up Novella.

PART ONE: I WON’T GIVE UP.

Here we have the very first part to a very anticipated, very emotional, very long-winded, very angsty-filled break-up story where we see the missus and Harry split and cope in ways that only bring them back to one another, closer than before and deeper in love than ever before. A little novella(?) that I’ve been working my hardest on and spending my free time perfecting just for you guys. 

I cannot thank you enough for being patient with and understanding that it’s been something I want to be 100% happy with. It’s been tough, I’m not going to lie. It’s been hard to find motivation because I’ve not written very many sad stories whilst being on here; I’ve read them! But, not written many, so, I hope this is the start of something new (cue High School Musical reference).

I’m still very iffy over the argument scene. So, bear with uit, haha. It’s the first piece of angst that I’ve written…

But, I’m finally SO happy to be sharing it with you! For the next 5 days, you’re going to be taken on a journey of emotions between the two of them. Enjoy! x

So, I get that that ending bit was supposed to be like “there’s a little bit of Ashi out there in the world even though she’s gone” and all that.  I get the logistics and where it was coming from!  

On one hand that’s sort of driving the “good things/people can come out of the worst situations” point home (Aku is the worst thing to happen to the planet but without his existence Ashi wouldn’t exist, etc, etc). 

On the OTHER hand…

That ending could have used just one or two more scenes.  

Bear with me for a moment, okay!  It’s late, I’m sad Ashi didn’t make it through the finale - just let me have this.


So, picture this:

The Ashi Jack knew disappeared during their wedding.  Leaving a grieving Jack, back in his own time with his old family and friends, but still sad.  He sits by that tree, somber.  Suddenly, a little ladybug flies up to him, he stares at it a moment before smiling.  He looks out over the hills as the sun shines on him and the tree he’s under.  The lighting is warm and it’s a strong callback to another scene we saw in the first episode of the season:

All of these are meant to represent Ashi.

Okay?  That’s the scene we saw already.

Now, picture this:

The camera pans out on Jack, and that’s the last we see of him. It’s not mentioned, but he knows in some way or form, Ashi survived.

Then we get a glimpse of the alternate timeline, a future without Aku.

In it, we see some familiar faces - but the entire timeline has obviously been altered.  We see some glimpses of the Scottsman’s daughters - some of them are keeping the ancient battle traditions alive - some of them are builders and engineers.  We see humans and some aliens in a big city. We catch a glimpse of the talking dogs running a museum to educate their kids about their ancestors.  We see a whole lot of things.

And then finally, we catch a glimpse of a young woman with dark hair. Enjoying a walk through a park, listening to birds chirping in the trees.  She gets to the top of a hill just in time to see the sunset.  The tree she’s under is illuminated a soft rosy pink.  The sun shines out over the hills around her, and she breathes in deeply - feeling an undeniable sense of peace.

Finally we see her face - this is Ashi, only in this NEW timeline she wasn’t created by Aku’s magic and a cultist (this time she and her sisters were created by two humans, surprise!).  But she’s still Ashi.  And this Ashi gets to live the life she always deserved to have.
