because she feels like such a real person

Is anyone else strangely protective over Jo?? Like I feel personally violated whenever people comment anything like “She’s just making up stuff to stay relevant.” Or “She’s just trying to make more money.” Like NO I WILL FIGHT YOU LAY OFF MY QUEEN. And half of the problem is that buzzfeed is constantly taking stuff we already knew and releasing it as “new information” like shut up, you muggle. We knew this 4 years ago. She’s not making up more stuff for attention. Also I hate when people call her just “JK” because the K isn’t even real??

the amount of people who take the shadows in Persona 4 at face value and miss the totally not complicated at all meaning behind them is unbelievable

like the entire point of the shadows is that they can only achieve autonomy by killing their owner and they can only attack their owner if their owner rejects them

so the way they portray inner issues is always twisted to be embarrassing or vicious and repugnant (or both)

Yosuke is bored in Inaba and feels destined for greatness so his shadow portrays him as an entitled, arrogant sociopath who can’t feel empathy for others

Chie is scared nobody will want her if they don’t need her so her shadow twists it into her being an abuser who sets up situations where she can ‘save’ her friends

Yukiko wants personal freedom and feels trapped in inheriting her family inn but can’t come up with the courage to voice it so her shadow portrays her as a helpless princess who needs rescuing

Kanji puts on a hyper-masculine facade because he’s afraid he’ll be rejected if he shows his true nature (and avoids girls because hyper-masculinity is an instant path to acceptance with most guys in Japan, but there is no such easy route when interacting with girls) so his shadow is flamboyantly gay

Rise feels like her persona as an idol is fake and that she’s being portrayed and sold as someone who isn’t her, and feels like nobody actually likes her for the person she actually is, so she has a desire to show people the 'real’ her which is twisted into slutty exhibitionism

Naoto feels stress of having to live up to her family’s legacy but her age and sex cause people to not take her seriously and she wishes she could escape those prejudices, so her shadow takes the form of an unreasonable, immature brat (who exists in a TOKUSATSU SET and wears an OVERSIZED LAB COAT) who plans to swap her sex

Like

none of this shit is really complicated

it’s all pretty much right there

all you have to do is like

pay even the slightest bit of attention

The love interests through the mains’ phones

SKAM is a multimedia/cross platform show, so it only make sense that how characters interact with their friends through social media is important.

I think we’re getting important information through how the mains have been naming their love interest in their phone (I’m skipping Eva because she was already dating Jonas and therefore had him as…Jonas).

Noora had Dickhelm as “Willhelm”, the name she used to neg him. The name she kept in her phone as a way to “neg” the feelings she had for him. During a big part of the season, Noora lied to herself about her feelings for him, refusing to call him by his given name (which I understand…I couldn’t even make myself call him by his name in this meta).

Isak had Even as “Even Kosegruppa” showing how he didn’t know his family name past. He didn’t know where he came from.
Even when he finally learned his last names, he still couldn’t find him on social media. He still only met him at kosegruppa. Even didn’t seem to exist before.
Isak was still missing an important information about him. And he still wasn’t sure about him and Even’s feelings for him. 
“Even Kosegruppa” is as neutral as you can get. It’s not just “Even” because that would be too sentimental. That would mean he’s the first Even his mind goes to when he thinks about the name Even. “Even Kosegruppa” is casual.

Which brings us to Sana.
Yousef is hiding his phone number.
Getting someone’s number feels much more personal than getting someone’s Facebook. It’s a next step in a relationship. First we add each other on Facebook. Then we get each other’s phone numbers…and then we date (because, lbh, we’ll never share our tumblrs to each other).
She’s only been chatting casually with him, through his social media. His social appearance. This public image she had of him. The assumptions she made based on appearances.
The real Yousef is still unknown. We got a glimpse of him at the end of episode 4 but that was still only breaking the surface. She likes him. A lot. But she’s conflicted.
She liked him so much without even realising he didn’t believe in Allah. Which seems like a big part of someone’s identity. It’s certainly a big part of Sana’s.

So yeah.
Unknown.

[The original meta assumed that Sana didn’t have Yousef’s phone number and that it was why it was displayed as “unknown”. I made most of my conclusion around this misconception. Since then a lot of people have explained to me that a number shows as “unknown” if it’s been made private/hidden by the caller. Which only made my point better: we went from Yousef being “unknown/unsure” a character to Yousef outright hiding shit. So I edited the Sana/Yousef part of this meta quickly to reflect this updated information.]

Going in for the kill I see dear anon lol okay here we goooo

HERE WE FUCKING GO!

1) Mama Jay’s Wedding, summer 2014! RIP MAMA JAY!!

In The Eye Abides The HeArt

FINALLY a great PLL episode. I have so many thoughts and theories about this one! 

Make sure to enable pictures, they are critical to the theories. It gets better the further you read!!! Enjoy!

TWIN CLUES 

  • I’ve said it many times, but I would really hate if there was twin reveal. This was the case with Courtney DiLaurentis in the book version, and its been done with Jessica and Mary DiLaurentis. It would be a cop-out to do it again, so i sincerely hope it doesn’t happen; but lets explore all the twin hints in this episode, because there were so many.
  • ARIA- The first time AD FaceTimed Aria, it was just a hooded figure with a black face, but in this episode it was what looked to be Aria’s facial features on Paige’s face. Weird and off-putting
  • SPENCER- Everyone is thinking and writing about this- but the Spencer we see at the airport with Wren was acting very suspicious. She also is not wearing the white jacket or watch she had on in the previous scene, nor is it draped over her chair. There are also girls wearing matching shirts in the background.

BUT I THINK THE FOLLOWING WAS THE BIGGEST TWIN CLUE OF THE EPISODE:

  • ALISON- Alison says something VERY interesting when Paige asked her if she loved Emily. Ali says this about Emily, “She looks at you and sees who you really are. Maybe that’s the scariest part-You want to be who she sees.”  The second she says this all I could think was WHAT IF IT IS SO SCARY BECAUSE YOU AREN’T THE REAL ALI BUT HER TWIN?! If this Alison that we have been seeing is in fact -lets call her Courtney- then maybe she is feeling remorseful because Emily has been so in love with Alison for so many years, and Courtney wishes she REALLY was Alison. Courtney has taken over Ali’s life but deep down she knows she isnt the real Alison DiLarentis. The title of this episode was “In The Eye Abides The Heart,” which could also connect to this theory. Emily is in love with Alison, and always has been. The person she is seeing now-looks like Alison, but it is really Courtney. But Emily doesn’t know this and believes its Ali because they are identical. Her EYES see who she believes is Alison, which causes her HEART to love her (even though its Courtney). IN THE EYE ABIDES THE HEART.

——

EMILY’S BABY

  • I think the biggest reveal of this episode was that Archer Dunhill is not the father of Emily’s baby. So who is it???
  • Charlotte- I am STILL holding out hope that CeCe is not the real Charles, but if she is, what if it was her sperm that she had frozen from before her sex change? She had her boyfriend Archer pretend to be a doctor, and had her cousin Alison implanted with Emily’s eggs and her own sperm. Her cousin gives birth to her baby as a surrogate- this would be the only way she could have a baby now because of her surgery. Even if she is dead now- Archer decided to continue with the plan even after her death so she could “live on.” Confusing and crazy but definitely possible in Rosewood.
  • AD- I have been praying that AD is male, so maybe it is AD’s sperm. Why? Maybe AD is impotent, which is common for sociopaths and people who have severe mental illnesses. If AD is a relative of Alison, he is having his sister give birth to his child, using Emily’s eggs (not Alison’s eggs because of incest). It’s also a way to psychologically torture Emily&Ali as well- which he loves doing.
  • Anonymous [Sperm] Donor (which is an AD anagram)- I also think it’s possible that Alison is still the manipulative bitch she has always been and stole Emily’s eggs and had someone implant them in her with a random sperm donor, as a way to bond her and Emily for life and get Paige out of the picture once and for all. 

——

CAMP FOR TROUBLED BOYS

  • So now we know that Lucas and Charles go WAY BACK. They attended the same camp together for troubled boys where Pastor Ted worked as a counselor since he is Charles’ father.
  • Remember how Alison used to call Lucas “Hermie,” and say that he had both girl and guy parts? Sometimes babies are born with both male and female sex organs. What if Lucas was sent to this camp because he really is a hermaphrodite. (I just want to say as a side note that Marlene has not done a good job of portraying these sensitive subjects before (Charles as transgender and Emily as a lesbian) so I hope if they go this route it is done in a respectful and tasteful way)
  • What if Lucas is Bethany Young??? Maybe that is his female persona. 

—–

COMIC BOOK

  • The A is very pronounced in Lucas’ signature.
  • Lucas and Charles wrote and illustrated a comic book. I LOVED this reveal; it was CRAZY and really cool.
  • Emily & Hanna summarize the comic book: “The hero is this boy who gets picked on by other kids and by his own family. He meets this alien woman in the woods and she becomes his protector. Shes this all powerful shape-shifter that helps get revenge for the boy- by torturing his enemies. And sometimes the boy turns into Arcturus, so he can experience the payback she gets for him.”
  • There is a heavy metal band which goes by Arcturus. In 1997 they released “Master of Disguise” and in 2015 they released a song titled “Game Over”. (PLL.wikia) 
  • Charles used elements of the comic book in the Dollhouse:
  • This obviously proves that Lucas is part of the A Team, and has been since (probably) the very beginning. But I dont think he is or has ever been Head A or AD.

——

CLARK KENT 

  • In comic books there is always a superhero and an alter ego. 
  • Batman is Bruce Wayne. Spider-Man is Peter Parker. When that character wakes up in the morning, he’s Peter Parker. He has to put on a costume to become Spider-Man. 
  • Superman didn’t become Superman. Superman was born Superman. When Superman wakes up in the morning, he’s Superman. 
  • His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit with the big red “S”, that’s the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. Those are his clothes. What Kent wears - the glasses, the business suit - that’s the costume Superman wears to blend in with us.
  • Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent? He’s weak… he’s unsure of himself… he’s a coward. Clark Kent is Superman’s critique on the whole human race. (kill bill)
  • Look at how similar the boys comic book cover is to Superman’s comic book cover: 


  • They both have a yellow background and red lettering.
  • They both wear a RED CAPE. Which is quite obviously a RED COAT parallel. Maybe this is AD’s homage to his comic book- putting his female A team members in a RED COAT, since his comic book protector wore a RED CAPE.

Now….who wears GLASSES? 

Is TOBY our Clark Kent???? Is Toby AD?!

  • Remember the scene a few episodes back when Spencer visits Toby in the hospital (Remember AD forced her to go. Which makes a lot of sense if Toby is AD) Toby says: “Maybe this town needs to disappear before we can leave”

Maybe that is Toby’s goal. If Toby is AD, maybe he needs to destroy everyone in Rosewood before he can move on with his life.


Then Spencer says, “You should probably try PUTTING ON YOUR GLASSES”

I wrote about this in a previous post but- Spencer says “We beat on, boats against the current.” Which is a quote from The Great Gatsby, and the “all seeing eye” billboard is the most famous imagery and symbolism from that book. 

The title of the episode is “IN THE EYE ABIDES THE HEART.”

When Mona is studying the Board Game, she says that it was LOVINGLY HANDMADE with levers and pulleys. Its NOT a computer, its a construction project. Toby built the Game Board and the Dollhouse. 

I think its seriously possible that Toby is our Clark Kent…sees himself as Superman. He is AD, Lucas & Charles’ avenger.

This morning is a battle. It’s a battle to focus on really anything but Y/N. I’m just not sure what to make of any of this. I have no idea what she’s thinking while she flits around the campsite packing up the sleeping bags and tent while Sam works on breakfast. She doesn’t seem any warmer to me than she is to Sam, playfully dodging his reach when she steals a piece of bacon, or than when she grabs Steve’s arm to get an extra lift to push the tent bag on top of the car. I can’t figure out if this morning was just a weird thing in an emotional moment or if it was something more.

It’s also a battle over the next stop. She’s sitting stubbornly on the picnic table holding her atlas while Sam begs her to get in the car. Steve is rolling his eyes and I’m barely holding back my laughter.

“Come on! You’re being such a princess!” Sam scoffs, “Get in the car.”

“No! Vegas is not part of the plan!” She shouts back defiantly.

Sally Jackson, Mother to All
  • So I’ve been thinking, and we all know how most of the demigods don’t have a good parental figure in their life
  • And then there’s Sally Jackson, who, let’s be real, is the kind of person to look after all of them
  • Just imagine Annabeth being all nervous on her first dinner there as Percy’s girlfriend because Sally isn’t just her friend’s mom, it’s her boyfriend’s mom now
  • But of course Sally makes her feel at ease straight away by joking around with her and taking sides with her against Percy playfully
  • And pretty much from then on Sally is the mother she never had, because Annabeth loves Sally, and they spend days together doing the kind of things neither of them would ever do with Percy like going shopping
  • Just imagine Jason coming over for dinner sometimes and Sally hugging him hello and goodbye, and Jason has never, ever been given a hug by someone so comforting, and he can close his eyes and pretend he has a mother
  • And think about Sally helping Piper out with the cooking because they both love creating new dishes and just having so much fun
  • And Piper’s never got much affection or just been able to spend a normal day with her father, the best she got is Jane taking her to McDonald’s to buy her lunch, and she just cannot stop smiling
  • And Hazel, oh my gods, Hazel is so confused about modern life at first (of course) and sometimes she can’t help but feel out of place
  • But Sally just understands, she gently helps Hazel get used to everything, because I think sometimes we forget Hazel is thirteen and has never had a proper parental figure, and Sally gives her that
  • Imagine Sally reminding Leo of his own mom
  • Like obviously not the building things or anything, but just the way Sally goes the extra mile to make people feel better, or by just always smiling at people, and referring to them affectionately
  • Leo pretends like he doesn’t really care that much, but deep down he loves it
  • At first Frank is really shy around Sally, especially the first time when Percy invites him over
  • And obviously Sally can tell, so she doesn’t push it or anything
  • Slowly Frank gets more and more comfortable around her, especially after that time Sally helped him plan a date with Hazel and it’s pretty much the best date either of them go on
  • And eventually it comes to the point where if any of them have a problem or they are just feeling down, it doesn’t even matter if Percy’s there or not, they can just go talk to Sally, and she is always willing to help
  • Just generally imagine all the demigods loving Sally and she is able to give them what so many of them have never had
  • And just think of Percy seeing all of this and being so happy because he knew it all along: he has the best mother in the whole entire world

She have a lot of responsibility as she works in her fathers company, but she is not the one who backs away from a challenge. Sun Bak is strong, smart, insightful, trusting and loving. 

But she can also take you out if you break the trust she’s given you. She will come after you with two fists ready to fight. She will do what she believes in with honor, grace and strength. 

Sun is a warrior by heart but don’t let the strong face fool you she also has a gentle heart.

Wolfgang Bogdanow has a lot of demons inside him. Since his family is one of the most powerful crime families in Berlin he isn’t always going by the book. Wolfgang is resourceful, considerate, patient and when he really loves someone  he loves them with all of his heart.

He loathed his father and naturally he also hates the rest of his relatives. The only person in the world he actually considers his family, is  a guy named Felix. Felix and Wolfie have been best friends since childhood and they are more like brothers than friends. 

Wolfgang is clever and witty. He wants to do the right thing, and be different from his family. But he struggles to get rid off what his family have trained him to do and think. He’s loyal to the ones he cares about and he would never give up on them no matter what.

Nomi Marks is one of the most amazing persons we have on screen. Not only has she gone through a lot, she is the most brave woman you’ll ever meet! Born as a male in a woman body Nomi learned that family does  not always mean by blood. 

She is strong, opinionated, kind and a beak of sunshine. Behind the keyboard she is incredible as a hacker. She’s not afraid of showing people who she is and not afraid of speaking her mind. She is trustworthy, incredibly supportive and above all a fantastic person.

This show is worth the watch and especially because it represent people all over the world, with all kinds of struggles, hopes and dreams. 

Sense8 is all about unity and amazing characters that feels like real people! It’s about love, compassion and family. It’s about these group of people who are different in so many ways, but still so similar at the same time. 

It’s a about learning, understanding, being united despite who you are or where you come from. 

Sense8 is the best show on netflix because of all these reasons and I hope that if you haven’t watched this show yet you will now. 

Cause as the world is now we need this show more than ever.

So, Patty Tolan?

Patty Tolan.

The other ghostbusters are scientists, right?  They’re there because Science!, or maybe in Holtzmann’s case because Boom!.  Basically all the plot has to do for Abby and Erin is dangle the chance to do real, replicable science in front of them while removing any excuse to drag their feet.  So tangible ghost + fucking fired = done.

But Patty’s not a scientist.  Patty’s got a decent job, even if it’s obviously not what she wanted out of life.  Patty’s motivation appears to be that she’s basically just a good person and responsible citizen?  I mean, obviously she wants some excitement, and to feel like she’s making a real difference, but seriously.

We first see her stuck in her little booth, trying to be cheerful and positive at commuters who appear largely indifferent, until one guy comes along who’s clearly having some sort of mental health crisis.  She stays pretty cheerful, she’s kind to him, and then she gets out of her booth and goes looking for him when he disappears and she reasonably assumes he’s in trouble. 

Like, she could very easily have called it in and washed her hands of the situation.  It’s not her fault/problem that maybe the transit cops won’t get there in time to help if this guy’s suicidal or delusional.  I’m pretty sure people doing her job aren’t even supposed to leave their booths on-shift.  But no, she gets out and goes after this bro just in case.

And meets a ghost.  A terrifying ghost.  Who scares the dick out of her.

I mean, what happens in the Aldrich Mansion? The tour guide tells his boss, who goes to Erin.  Then they stay as far as possible from the scene while the women investigate.  Patty goes herself, on her own time.  Maybe her bosses didn’t believe her, maybe she knew she’d be dismissed and didn’t bother trying to explain what she saw, but she knows something’s up, and she takes it on herself to do something about it.  And then she goes back to the scene of the haunting with them, to see what happens.

Every time they turn around, she’s handing them useful facts and history about the sites they’re investigating.  Her interest in the city is keen and backed up by extensive knowledge.  Hell, when she runs into something that shouldn’t be happening and she can’t explain, the first thing she does is head for the likeliest source of expertise to learn about it.  She’s excited by it–it’s scary and maybe dangerous, but it’s new and interesting and she wants to figure it out.

Like, Abby might want recognition on top of that, and Erin so desperately wants to be believed that she risks the scientific mission for a shot at it, but Patty just wants to fucking know.

And she feels a genuine duty to help, too.  She might not be able to build a ghost-blasting plasma-cannon, but she notices when a teammate’s mood is in the toilet and takes steps to address it.  She knows the ghost-booster isn’t supposed to be in her subway, and that this is important.  When things get ridiculously dangerous, and city hall’s smearing their names in the press, and she’s still not getting fucking paid for this, she never even looks tempted to say fuck this shit and go home.  Her little monologue about going back to her booth is more to soothe/trick the ghost standing on her fucking shoulders than sincere.

Patty’s first instinct is to pool resources, and look after people, and encourage everyone to bring what they’ve got to the table.  She might be disappointed or angry when nobody meets her halfway–the concert crowd drops her, and nobody acknowledges her compliments when she’s in her booth–but it doesn’t stop her from bringing her A-game.  When the squad rolls out to save the world, it’s wearing her uniform and driving her car.

Just Patty Tolan, everybody.

Personally I love how Margot looks. Maybe because my breasts look exactly like that. And to that anon who said she's 18 not 50. Well I am 18 and you are part of the problem making me very self conscious about how my body looks. Kayla, thank you for making a sim that looks like me. It makes me happy to feel represented somewhere.

There are more than thirty messages just like this one in my inbox.

Margot might just be a bunch of pixels, but she represents a lot more than that to a lot of people. Real people have real bodies that are shaped like Margot’s. I’m not the perfect spokesperson for this and I don’t want people to think that’s what I’m trying to do here, but I will never stand for body shaming of any sort.

I think people are too hard on Nina. We always talk about mental illness and being educated and understanding of it. It’s clear Nina is struggling inwardly and I guess I just expected more fans to support her and be a little more sympathetic. It is really not easy to deal with mental illness and it’s even harder to deal with when you feel like the world is against you. I watch Nina on the show and she says she feels like she’s on her own. People get annoyed and angry that she feels like people are out to get her but this fanbase has largely been very negative and hateful towards her. It probably just reaffirms all of those fears. Idk I just watched Untucked and I see some of the girls like Sasha and Peppermint roll their eyes and act like it’s an inconvenience to them that someone is obviously struggling with mental illness. Just because you don’t understand something doesn’t make it any less real. Nina wasn’t just a Debbie Downer she’s a real person with real struggles and it just makes me really disappointed to see how everyone is treating her.

anonymous asked:

my friend and I both hadn't had our first kiss but she just got together with the girl she likes and now I feel really behind. Everyone in my year has had their first kiss. E v e r y o n e. I feel so awkward now because they're all asking people to the dance I don't even know how to talk to guys??

Bruh, the fact that the social standards for when a first kiss should happen is just fucked imo. Don’t pressure yourself into trying to talk to guys, and honestly I treat them the same as any other person.

There’s now real way to talk to anyone. Just treat them like a person, and it’ll get you somewhere. Ofc you’re not going to talk to guys about periods and bra issues (if that’s a thing for you, cuz honestly it is for me and I complain about those things to my female friends all the time) but like, talk about classes, projects, teachers, who’s doing what this weekend. Even the weather if it’s being whacky. If you’re into sports talk about that (those Stanley cup playoffs amiright?)

But guys are are people too. They’re not some ethereal race of beings that could transport us to different world. Pfff, if they are actually aliens, ask to leave earth because idk about you but I’ve wanted off for awhile now.

Anywhoodles, in all seriousness, and I’ll say this for like the third time: guys are people, treat them that way. You don’t have to flirt, you don’t have to seduce them, because tbh, you don’t want a guy who’s just after sex. If you’re really looking for a relationship, look for the guy who can be your best friend and more, that’s what I look for in any potential partner.

Hope this helps anon ✌

TO preferences - Cuddling

Klaus Mikaelson 

Klaus would hold you tightly, he would pull you into his chest and wrap his arms around you, laying kisses into your hair like he was afraid to lose you. He would speak gently into your hair as you fall asleep lying on his chest and taking in his scent. Klaus would savour these few moments he would get with you to just relax and forget about the life he leads even for a moment.

Elijah Mikaelson 

Elijah would always come up from behind you and just keep you there, taking you in and feeling his face brush against your hair. You would act like this inconveniences you because he would find the most difficult times to decide he would hold you, but in reality you loved the feeling of his arms around your waist, rolling your head back onto his shoulder to see your boyfriend and appreciate him.

 Kol Mikaelson 

Kol would enjoy laying on you, his head resting in your stomach as he kisses your body’s me you rest your hands on his neck, his back, everywhere. Kol would love to just lay with you and waste the day away. You love moment like this because you see the real Kol when you are alone together, his insecurities and his true feelings. This is Kol Mikaelson the person and not Kol Mikaelson the original vampire. 

 Rebekah Mikaelson 

 Rebekah would love to take care of you, she would lay you down and rest your head in the crook of her neck as she caressed your hair and planted kisses on your head and face. For Rebekah these small moments which for most would be dull and insignificant in compassion to all of the t you go on so often is amazing because it reminds her of how your love is so pure and how far you have come together.

but imagine this. A Modern au where R has a youtube channel where he sings original stuff and covers. And (idk why man) Eponine writes a song (On my own) but is pretending too hard not to show she really cares about it (and about marius lol) so she asks R to sing it w/ saying she wrote it... and he does and les amis watch the video and Enjolras is like WTF? Who's breaking R's heart? and starts pinning and thinking TOO MUCH about the fact R is in love with A RANDOM guy. why didnt he know abt this

ohhhh my god? I love this holy shit god damn thank you?? I wish I had time to write the full fanfiction this prompt deserves but for now please consider the following:

-Enjolras gets suddenly VERY CURIOUS about Grantaire’s activities outside of their meetings. When he leaves Enj is like where are you going? Who with? And when Grantaire doesn’t answer him he asks everyone else because he really just wants to find out who Mystery Man could possibly be when Grantaire spends so much time at the Musain with them

-he’s developing permanent frown lines please someone help the man

-of course the first person to know the real reason Enjolras’ behaviour has changed is Éponine, since she’s the only one who knows who wrote the song AND how Enjolras feels about R, but she decides she’s going to let this all play out naturally because why not

-Everyone else assumes he wrote the song about Enjolras and none of them understand why Enj is getting increasingly agitated about Grantaire’s extra-curricular activities

-until one day Courf is like ‘dude are you going to ask Grantaire out??’ because he knows all about Enj’s feelings and R has been covering sad songs on his channel lately, but Enjolras is like ‘why would I ask him out when clearly he’s interested in someone already’ and Courf Gets It

-Courf is like, please Enjolras just ask Grantaire to introduce you to Mystery Man so you can at least see who Grantaire is so infatuated with

-And Enjolras is like alright alright fine

-so he goes to talk to Grantaire but ends up being like 'let me talk to this man, let me and give him a piece of my mind for not paying attention to you, anyone would be lucky to have you, I know he’s not obligated to return your feelings but seriously who is this guy he’s an idiot’

-Grantaire very weakly says 'you’

-(the same night, the song Grantaire posts on his channel is uncharacteristically sappy. his subscribers are curious. the amis are pleasantly surprised. Eponine knows what’s happened right away.)

Emma Swan Appreciation

I just want to take a moment to appreciate how much care the writers have put into dealing with Emma’s fears and issues and making her such a relatable character. 

Emma is always Emma … not some “look, we fixed her” version of the character. She feels like a friend and sometimes she feels like me. She feels real because her story isn’t just about a fairytale ending … it’s about healing the pain of the past with the promise of the future. That doesn’t happen overnight and it can take years to really sink in.

Emma Swan reminds me to be brave and to be a good person and know that I deserve good things to happen to me. But she also reminds me that there are times when I might not handle everything perfectly … and that it’s okay.

I’ve seen people criticize Clara by saying that she doesn’t talk like a real person. First of all, what exactly does talking like real person constitute, and second, did you ever stop to consider that maybe the reason her lines sometimes feel more scripted is because that’s how she sees herself? Clara’s always wanted to be a perfect storybook heroine. She grew up with her head full of books and a poster of Marcus Aurelius on her wall, and her tendency to want control over every aspect of her life is repeatedly emphasized. Does it not make sense that the way she speaks aligns more with her idealized vision of herself than with what you might hear while walking down the street every day?

Clara Oswald is very careful about the way she presents herself to the world, and if her lines seem scripted, it’s because she scripts her life. 

After Hours - Checkmate

Hello again! Okay so this one is not so much for me as it is for my friend @plastic-pipes, she’s had a rough few days and I wanted to do something for her. So I went outside of my comfort zone a bit and wrote a new ship for the very first time. Also this is unedited, mostly just written and then posted - so apologies for any mistakes. 

I may not be a Monochrome shipper myself, but I totally get why people are and why their dynamic is so popular. This is a very quick dive into that so don’t expect too much, but this is for a friend of mine so I hope she likes it :)


The reaction surprised her.

Weiss had long thought about what it would be like to reunite with her team. She’d spent nights lying awake thinking about them – worrying about them. Those concerns were only escalated by the fact that Weiss had no idea if any of them were okay.

Seeing Ruby first was such a relief because Ruby was so important to her. Her partner, like family, Ruby Rose was the first real friend Weiss had ever had. She owed Ruby for not giving up on her and for helping her step out of the bitterness and into a world where she was accepted, despite her faults.

Yang was another story entirely. Seeing Yang again was like remembering how to smile. Yang was able to make the world feel safer and brighter. Her hair was bright like the sun but the only thing that shined more was her personality. Weiss wanted to cling to Yang, to be around her through all of this because she felt safe.

Both of the sisters gave her that.

The one that surprised her, was when she finally saw Blake again.

Favourite Acting Scenes – Eskild lays down the (gay) law for Isak (5.10 part 5)

A request from an anon.

The Most Difficult Scene Ever To Take Screenshots From Because There’s SO Much Text.

As mentioned before, acting is a game of interaction, in which both actors act and react to each other’s performance of lines or movements; there needs to be something that happens before someone else can react to it. This scene is very much different from the scene in 5.10 with Even that comes right before this one, however, because there Even barely shows any reaction in what Isak’s saying. Eskild is not that person. He is much more reactive, and this scene shows his range of different emotions that are going through his mind here. This scene is so poignant, so telling, so real because it shows exactly how hurtful words can be, even unintentional. And this is all it takes: 5 minutes.

In the beginning of the scene, Eskild is pretty excited. He’s a pretty observant person, has helped Isak through some tough shit at the end of last year. I think that Eskild really feels like he’s an older brother to Isak; he’s the one who took him in, gave him a place to stay, and I think that Eskild only told Noora that Isak wasn’t gay so she would back off a little. That gay bar meeting must have confirmed all his thoughts on Isak, and gave his some sense of needing to protect him. This is, what I have noticed myself, what happens in the LGBTQ+ community: you care for each other, in times that no one else seems to. This is Isak’s first introduction into that world. If only he was a little bit more graceful.

So Isak has had a boy over, to stay the night, and lied about it before Eskild’s entered this room. But he knows Isak, knows he’s finding this difficult, so Eskild feels like he has to give him a little nudge, in a very lighthearted manner. Eskild’s willing to leave him alone when Isak doesn’t respond. You see Isak losing his smile, considering his options here, and finally deciding okay, Eskild’s safe. I can tell him.

There is kind of a thing going on between Even and me.

Eskild’s first reaction is a small smile; he’s so proud that Isak is telling him this, but he can’t make it too big of a deal, that’s not what Isak wants. But when Isak’s done telling him, he reaches out and touches his knee, and tells him that it’s really awesome; he sees that Isak is completely red, not looking him too much in the eye because this is scary as heck. Eskild has probably gone through this, in a similar fashion. He reassures him: you know, that gay bar thing was pretty obvious. But Eskild is so, so proud and so happy. He keeps that small smile.

Then it all changes when Isak has the biggest brainfart in all the parallel universes.

I enjoy Tarjei’s portrayal of Isak here immensely: he makes it really painful to watch, because Isak’s not holding back, the words seem to roll out of him, he speaks more honestly about what he’s feeling than he has done in ages. He’s basically blaming ‘people like Eskild’ that he can’t be honest about himself because ‘those people’ have the monopoly on what being gay looks like.

And this is enormously hurtful: you see Carl looking away to collect himself, to keep the anger and hurt he feels under control. This is something that Eskild probably has heard before, but he did not expect to hear this from Isak, not someone who he has helped so much and who he feels really protective of. He keeps his emotions under control, but you can see that his eyes are slowly starting to water, and when he mentions the amount of courage people need to have to be themselves, that’s when his emotions get the best of him.

This is what it takes for people to be themselves, Isak. Do not take that lightly and throw their experiences under the rug. Not when you haven’t even scratched the surface on standing up for who you are.

And since Eskild is usually such a happy person, he still tries to laugh a small bit. This is not who he wants to be, but this hurts him on such a deeply personal level that he can’t help but leave. Isak is so ashamed that he can barely look him in the eyes anymore.

Carl needed to nail this scene, and this could’ve been such a preachy scene as well, but it wasn’t. He really reacted to what Tarjei gave him in that small instance, he collected all the information that was given to him in words and in emotions and put the energy into feeling what his character was going through and needed to do.

Different people exist; different mlm experiences and identities within the LGBTQ+ community exist. And through Isak, Eskild and Even we as an audience get to see that they also co-exist: they’re not separate, they can live together, really learn from each other and be the family for each other that they need. These are all valid experiences. This scene was needed to show that to us, and it’s revolutionary because it’s honest, it’s real, and explained in a way that everyone can understand. That is the true strength of this show.
