both so good in this scene

Thanks for your patience! I’ve been doing extra hours at work lately so I’m not getting to these requests as quickly as I’d hoped, but I am enjoying doing them!

Definitely a great scene from the start of season 1! Thanks for giving me a reason to paint it!

(Thank You Requests 2/5)

Pre-Fight Club Author’s Note/Rant

Once again we have an episode that doesn’t fit, timewise, within the confines of the season. Mulder has his jaw wired shut at the end. Y’all, I have broken my jaw. It was wired shut for six freaking weeks. There is just no way this episode happens mid-May of 2000 if Requiem is set at the end of May or early June. (Doggett actually says “Agent Mulder disappeared last May” in The Gift but that’s a whole other can of worms.) Never mind how effed up both their faces were. Those injuries would have taken a good long while to heal. So yeah, this one’s going to have to be another “in-episode context only” scene-in-between. Because Chris Carter is the worst. (And of course this was one of the episodes he wrote himself. Because of course it was.)

Actually, though, I just had a thought. What if the episodes that are the most egregious timeline-continuity offenders (I’m looking at you, Firewalker, The Rain King, Brand X, and possibly Rush) exist in some sort of parallel universe? Or multiple parallel universes? Maybe in this one, because Mulder and Scully are still rehabilitating, they don’t end up going to Oregon, and Mulder doesn’t get abducted, and Scully doesn’t have to go through the majority of her pregnancy alone. Maybe Mulder doesn’t even have a Stupid Brain Disease™ in this universe!

(Crap, did I just trick myself into finding a reason to have even the slightest bit of positive emotion regarding Fight Club? That’s… unexpected.)

Anyway, yeah. At the very least, this sucker’s getting the Rain King/Brand X treatment, but if you want to go ahead and pretend it’s not an in-universe ep at all, you should feel free to do that. ;)

Lance is attractive

Fucking fight me on this Barbara ok hERE WE GO


• WHEN LANCE FLIRTS WITH GIRLS IN SPACE MALL THEY GIGGLE
- being a girl, who talks to girls, I know that girls don’t giggle unless they like it and are more likely to shoot poisonous glares at strangers who flirt with them
- if a girl giggles at a stranger who flirts with them she’s likely interested
- if she’s interested in a stranger it’s probably because he’s good looking

• LANCE TAKES CARE OF HIS SKIN
- the fandom had a fucking carnival with this fact okay there is a scene both in season one and in season two where Lance is wearing a facemask so we all know he’s got flawless skin

• LANCE DRESSES THE BEST
- he just does
- everyone knows this
- even 80’s Lance dresses the best

• BLUE IS ATTRACTIVE
- I don’t remember where I heard this, but apparently some social study drew the conclusion that when men wear blue they are generally received as more good looking

• PLAXUM KISSED HIM
- um she knew him for like a day or two
- made some battle plans with him and then suddenly decided smooching him up was the best course of action
- listen man,, people don’t go kissing other strangers just so show their appreciation, she was definitely at least SOMEWHAT attracted to him

• HE HAS SHINY TEETH
- yeah okay this is probably a stylistic thing but um
- I have more than one screenshot of Lance with a small sparkle on his teeth, usually when he smirks
- those things are pearly white and pretty af

• HE HAS THOSE MUSCLES
- did you see him in the cryo pod
- muscles are portrayed as attractive by your friendly neighborhood Media™

• HE IS TALL
- also portrayed as attractive by your friendly neighborhood Media™

• I AM IN LOVE WITH HIM
- guys I only fall in love with attractive people, trust me,,

• THIS HAS BEEN A PSA THANK YOU

• bonus Keith is also in love with him so I mean how many people falling in love with him does it take for someone to realize that he is a good looking motherfucker

Viktor and Yuuri from the Rage of Bahamut collab. Granted, I’m not into the game but WHO CAN SAY NO TO FANTASY AU.

-Sort of- referencing one scene from Suikoden III opening (jump to 1:35 - 1:44. Or 1:42 - 1:44), so I drew Viktor to use staff instead of the wand from the collab preview. Not sure which one is better, so I upload both versions 8′D

And now I’m out. Should be sleeping since I drew this when I was (and still am) sick. Good night. *rolls to blanket*

Why I can’t and won’t finish watching Iron Fist

Before anyone tries to jump down my throat about being a stupid SJW who only cares about the race angle, I would first like to point out that I enjoyed the hell out of Daredevil, another Marvel Netflix show starring a white man practicing Asian martial arts. It’s all in the execution, guys. And the execution here is garbage.

Let’s start with the martial arts. For the love of fuck, if you just HAVE to get a generic white man to play the lead, the least you could do was get one who was good at traditional martial arts. There are a lot of them. Charlie Cox, one Netflix recommendation over, pulls off some of the best fight scenes I have ever seen in a TV show (also, the man can act, so that helps too). Last month, I watched a red-belt student of mine in a local production of Macbeth. At twelve, that kid has more talent (in the acting and martial arts departments) than this Finn Jones tool.

Jessica Henwick’s form is nothing to write home about but at least she’s better than Jones. And both our action heroes would benefit greatly from some less shitty fight choreography and editing. (Guys, just adding loud ‘swoosh’ sound effects isn’t going to trick me into thinking the sword is swinging faster. I can see it).

To add insult to injury, the show condescendingly tries to make me believe that this pasty-ass piece of mediocrity is a better martial artist than Colleen Wing?? Just has him casually trounce her in her own dojo. With those wibbly-wobbly stances, son? I don’t think so. This is not real life, nor is it good fiction. This is some flabby-ass white guy’s jerk-off fantasy of being super awesome and showing up the hot Asian chick without any understanding martial arts whatsoever.

The acting in this show ranges from serviceable to painfully inept (lookin’ at you Meachum Jr. or whatever the fuck your name is, I’ll have forgotten your whole existence by tomorrow for all the impression you leave). Even the competent performances in this show only serve to remind me of more interesting characters from Netflix’s other Marvel shows. For example, Jessica Stroup’s acting is similar to Deborah Ann Woll’s performance as Karen Page, only serving to remind me that Karen Page alone is a more interesting character with more compelling scenes than half the cast of Iron Fist put together.

I will say that Colleen Wing is quite appealing and I applaud Henwick for making her both tough and charming, not an easy line to walk. If I wanted to be mean, I could point out that she is essentially just a Claire Temple 2.0 in terms of her temperament and her role as shelter and support to the Main White Guy at the point of her introduction. But I don’t actually want to pick on Colleen. She’s cute and I like her.

Now, back to being mean: STOP trying to make white characters look cool by having them speak Chinese (or any language they can’t speak for that matter, though I feel Mandarin generally gets a special kind of mangling for the crime of being a tonal language). It doesn’t sound cool. I hate to have to be the one to tell you this, guys. It makes you sound like a fucking idiot. Okay, sure, maybe you succeeded in making your white English-speaking audience think, ‘yeah, that’s really cool, he must be super smart and badass, I want to be like that.’ But White people, I am telling you this for your own good: you don’t want to be like that. Because as cool as that butchered-ass Mandarin may sound to you, it’s like a band-saw to my eardrums. It brings everything to a cringing, teeth-grinding halt in the middle of what might otherwise be a perfectly good scene. Remember when Wilson Fisk had a conversation with Madame Gao in ‘Mandarin’? That was the worst part of Netflix’s Daredevil. Worse, it made me embarrassed for an actor I greatly admire. So, to whoever decided it was a great idea to have Wilson Fisk show off his Mandarin, thanks dickhead. You wrecked an entire scene for my favorite Marvel villain.

Oh yeah, and if any of you want to try to tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about, fucking come at me bro. I have a black belt and 10+ years of training in traditional martial arts. I am a Chinese-American woman, proficient in Japanese and Mandarin, and I double majored in East Asian History and Buddhist studies.

Oh, did I mention that our protagonist keeps condescendingly spouting mystical pseudo-Buddhist bullshit to everyone he meets? And then throws temper tantrums when they (shock!) don’t take him seriously? God, I hate this show.

If I want to see better acting, I can go see a middle school play. If I want to see better fighting, I can go to the dojo and watch my seven-year-old green belts spar. If I want to hear Buddhist philosophy mangled by self-impressed white people, I can go to the yoga studio next door. 

fics are my absolute favorite type of fanwork, and i’ve been meaning to compile a list of my favorite macdennis fics for a while now. i recently hit 1000 followers here (which is absolutely wild, thank you so, so much ♥ ), so i figured this was as good a time as any to do this. here are some of my favorite macdennis fics, in no particular order. if you read any of these, this is an open invitation to come cry with me over how freakin good these are:

The Inevitable by runningwafers (explicit, 11k words) | Mac is in a lot of denial. This is a story about what happens when he finally snaps. [This one is an absolute treasure. Everyone is written impeccably in-character and there are parts that genuinely made me laugh out loud. The ending is near and dear to my heart.]

each the other’s world entire by quixoti (explicit, 13k words) | Mac and Dennis survive each other. Mac and Dennis will always survive each other. [This one follows Mac and Dennis from high school onwards, and it’s heart-achingly good. The references to direct scenes from the show are so spot on.]

we sinners bend by infinitevariety (explicit, 64k words) | Mac and Dennis have been sleeping on Dee’s floor for months. Something’s got to give. [A long one but a damn good one. Also, it’s a classic, so go read it now.]

Mac and Dennis Conduct an Experiment by pavonine (explicit, 36k words) | Dennis convinces Mac that the only surefire way to prove his straightness is to sexually experiment with another man. Of course that man happens to be Dennis. Of course Mac buys into this as a reasonable plan of action. Of course it backfires on them both. [Another classic. There’s so much to love about this one, but I’m especially fond of the dialogue.]

you’re the one i wanna watch this ship go down with by lagaudiere (mature, 4k words) | Not dying on a Christian cruise ship sometimes means having to face hard truths about yourself. Mac’s never been very good at that. [Good cavity-inducing fluff, complete with a great dancing scene.]

thick thighs make a dick rise by reflektions (explicit, 6k words) | In which Dennis does drag for the first time and Mac’s dick has an existential crisis. [DENNIS DOES DRAG. I don’t need to say anything more.]

the spell that you’ve created by peskyfeelings (mature, 7k words) | Mac is in bed but he can’t find sleep, because Dennis Reynolds lit a match and it’s still burning him up. [Internally tortured Mac and manipulative Dennis strike again, but this is a fresh and well-written take on it.] 

the day you move (i’m probably gonna explode) by sinnabar (explicit, 7k words) | He could maybe get addicted to this, if he let himself. Or: five times Mac and Dennis toed the line between friends and lovers, and one time they crossed it for good. [A good old 5+1.]

remember the things that make you feel by blackmountainbones (explicit, 9k words) | AU: Dennis Reynolds is a heroin addicted prostitute and Mac is one of his johns. [AKA the AU that tore my goddamn heart into a million pieces. This one will ruin your life, but you should read it anyway.]

Mac’s Day Out by adrianicsea (gen, 1k words) |  With $14 to his name after paying arbitration fees, Mac celebrates his first full day out of the closet. [This one’s not macdennis, but it’s short and sweet. I wanted to include an s12 fic on this list, and this one’s my favorite.] 

The lack of intimate moments that Sanvers gets really makes me appreciate Lost Girl

anonymous asked:

do you have favourite klance moments?? I wanna make an edit but I need scenes of them interacting ahahh

So this ask is 2 weeks old ಠ_ಠ …….sorry about that, but here is my detailed answer that I hope makes up for the delay :D 

Ranked in reverse order, here are my top 10 klance moments from both seasons (plus bonuses). It’s long, so, under the cut.

10. Pool Klance

Lena Luthor being brought back as a series regular is important for me. For several reasons:

1) She is a strong, bold woman who is the CEO of her own company.

2) She is incredibly smart and she has never used her appearance to get ahead.

3) She is open to change and respects ideas that are different to her own.

4) She has almost died on a few different occasions but each time she comes out fighting.

5) She was brought up with disgusting, xenophobic views but she actively goes against her family and all that she knows because she isn’t like them.

6) She has been a great friend and provided wonderful moral support for Kara.

7) She is hardworking and driven. She worked into the night just so she could help a friend.

8) She saved the entire alien race and single handedly took down her mother who’s plan was to kill all aliens.

9) She is a victim of emotional abuse and she is constantly fighting, she is constantly battling with it but still remains good despite her horrible past.

10) She is played by Katie McGrath who is a very talented and giving actress. Who has given us such wonderful, raw emotions and scenes that both mend and break my heart.

So I am excited for Lena’s return for a lot of reasons. I am excited to see her bond with the Superfriends, I am excited to see her having drinks with Maggie, I’m excited to see her friendships develop and I am excited to see her company thriving, to see what she faces, to gain more backstory. I am excited to see more of a character who has been similar struggles to myself and has come out on top. I am excited for Lena Luthor.

@overflowingpassion (it won’t let me tag you, rip). Have some Phichit! There were just so many options for him but I decided to choose scenes that focused on him specifically. Hopefully you enjoy this set!

Phichit, as a character, always feels to me like a breath of fresh air. He’s optimistic and energetic without being in your face about it. He’s supportive without being too pushy and strives towards his own goals without stepping on anyone else’s to get there. He’s able to find the good in any situation and set his bar to be achievable enough for himself to take joy in both their accomplishment as well as the entire journey to get there. I know he gets a lot of love in the fandom but I still can’t help feeling that he is still unappreciated.

I think what we all truly need is the OVA we’ve all been demanding, Phichit on Ice:

anonymous asked:

On a scale of 1 to 10 how likely do you think is the possibility of Sheith being canon? - Sincerely, a very distraught Sheith shipper who doesn't know whether she should trust the overwhelming staff support for Sheith as something more or just bait.

oh i think theres a good chance actually! i wouldnt believe that if not for 1 korrasami and 2 the staff already voicing that lgbt representation is something important to them that they’d like to add. sheith has a lot of backing from staff, both the writers and vas. and its nice to see that, even with some fans demanding that staff stop “withholding information” and outright writing callout posts about even the showrunner and episode directors for supporting shieth, that they haven’t stopped. there seems to be this general sentiment that the staff owes those kinds of fans something when?? its the writers’ story not theirs? and im glad they’ve made it clear that they aren’t willing to compromise decisions they’ve already made in the writing to suit what’s popular (see: “space mom” allura). 

so anyway: what’s done is done. and from what we have, i think season 2 basically establishes two potential love interests for keith: Shiro and allura. both are kinda unpopular with a lot of the fandom, but based on character interactions so far theyre the two that make the most sense to me. so anyway, i think that sheith has just as good a shot as kallura, which fans are already recognizing as something possibly romantic. There’s a bunch of parallels in their interactions i really like: 

  • shiro and allura are both represented as opposite sides of the scale in reaction to keith’s galra reveal. or, on a scale of allura to shiro, how well do you handle keith being galra after youve gotten close to him?
  • they both hug keith goodbye in this private moment to see him off before a dangerous mission. these scenes also both relate to keith being galra—shiro showing his support immediately after bom, and allura apologizing for her (quite understandable) reaction
  • both ships have an episode where they’re separated from the team and get a lot of one on one character development—see arc of traujeer  and across the universe/blade of marmora 
  • keith is the one who reassures both shiro and allura that the team needs them–who would open wormholes? and Nothing is gonna happen 

so anyway, in terms of which pairing i think is most likely, its either of those two, and id be happy with either ;;    but some other things shieth has going for it: 

  • its the ship i can most easily see being lgbt representation 
  • they already have an established backstory, one that we havent even explored yet, and we know whatever happened it was monumental enough that keith says shiro literally changed his life 
  • shiro is the person keith most desperately wants to see. out of everyone, lying there dying on the floor, the person he wants is shiro. whether you see it as platonic or romantic, its obvious that 1 keith loves him and 2 shiro is the most important person in his life. he doesnt even stay for his dad, but he does chase after the fake shiro
  • seems like theyre fated to keep getting separated and then reuniting, i dunno that seems pretty fairytale to me 
  • keith’s intro scene being his rescue of shiro. right when we first meet keith, we automatically associate him with shiro 
  • shiro wants keith to pilot black, and they already both share a mental link with her 
  • keith’s first and last lines right now are both “Shiro”
  • shiro seeing keith’s hallucinations in bom is, to me, the most deeply interpersonal, intimate scene in the entire series. its one thing to talk to another character about your feelings, but its another to be right there with them in their head. shiro saw a part of him that i dont think anyone else ever will 
  • i talked about this in my hug post a bit but while keith kinda represents this galra side of shiro (he’s the right arm of voltron and shiro’s right arm is also galra) it seems like shiro represents keith’s humanity. keith is humanized by his compassion and vulnerability with shiro. shiro is basically shown to be the one thing tying keith to earth–his family was gone, and he really had no other friends. he was lost without the garrison. after shiro was taken he had nothing left. he’s one of the only paladins who never expresses being homesick. Whatever good memories he had of earth, im guessing shiro was a big part of them. and shiro is the one there when keith finds out he’s galra, is the first one to reassure him. 
  • they mirror each other in a lot of their scenes 
  • seems to get a lot of staff support 

anyway i think it has a pretty fair shot, but that’s just my take on it. as for queer baiting in general, im already seeing people talk about that, but like…we’re 24 or so episodes into a 78 confirmed episode series. major ships aren’t gonna be cannon for a while now, so i think its best to wait a little and give some more time for relationships to develop. korrasami wasnt even a thing until the very end. and while i dont think that will be the case here, i think we just need to give it a little more time. id like to believe theyre sincere about lgbt representation, and would rather them take their time to develop it properly than get something just thrown together and feel like my identity was just reduced to a stereotype 

I can’t even begin to explain how shitty this is????????????????

Also I just can’t see this show going forward from here…michael was such an intrinsic part of the show.

Like…They’re actually going to put Jane and Raf back together, it’s CLEAR that that’s happening. Which is just? So incredibly frustrating

Why save him at all? It’s not like he’s had a huge storyline this season (most of it has been recovery centered which is now. Well.) It feels like they brought him back solely for Jane to lose her virginity to him, as if that would “throw a bone” to this side of the fandom so they could then get on with Raf and Jane. I’m.

They skipped three years so they don’t even have to address the grief. Like. If you’re going to kill a character you should at least properly deal with the ramifications of that I’m sorry.

Bringing back the abusive af rose and Luisa relationship? I’m so tired. I mean I saw it coming but. Honestly what made this show good was the balance between the jane plot and the drug ring plot, and a large part of that had to do with Michael. Both in being with Jane and spearheading the detective aspect. Sin rostro was michaels case. He sacrificed so much for it. He was supposed to be the one to solve it. He was supposed to be the one to finish it. Are we just done completely with the police stuff now? I loved that part of the show and have missed it this season, even with Michael still there.

They didn’t even giving him a good death scene. I get that that’s how life works but really? A throwaway scene in the last minutes of the episode? After everything?

No more Rogelio and Michael

No more Mateo and Michael (or baby Mateo in general which is :( )

No more jane and Michael

And most significantly…Just no more michael.

I’m angry and upset and I realize a lot of that has to do with yes, half of my otp and one of my favorite characters dying. But also the more I process the more I become aware of how sloppy this was written and planned and that’s equally upsetting to me.

Thoughts on the Cophine 360° spin scene

This is a ramble of mine (you’ve been warned).

This is probably also going to be ALL wrong.

In fact, I know it’s going to be wrong.

Why? Because the creativity of directors and writers have infinite number of ways to show infinite number of story lines. That’s the beauty of art in all its forms.

But I want to post this possibility JUST in case that it happens. I’ve thought a lot about that 360° spin scene that Evelyne mentioned at Paleyfest 2017.

Of course just the mention of the “beautiful scene” has sent the Cophine shippers into in-depth speculations, “WHAT SCENE WILL IT BE?!”.

Both Graeme and John mentioned that season 5 will focus on the Cophine relationship, as it is a center/core of the OB story. 

And now we have this:

(full confession, I will use any excuse to post this scene)

Some fans immediately commented, “The camera is swinging! Is this THE 360° spin scene?!”

Perhaps. If we get a full wrap around of the intense hunger lust action (#HungryDelphine), I’m good with that (oh Evelyne, you do these scenes so, so, sooooo well). For me, this is a flashback scene to S01E10, the filler between where we left Cophine at S1 and where we picked up with them in S2.

Thinking more of what’s been said and what we’ve seen thus far, considering things from a photographer perspective, seeing this flashback, and knowing the magic OB crew can string together multiple shots: I had a creative filmography idea. I wonder if the 360° spin scene will be about telling the story of Cophine’s love for each other through the seasons. Something beautiful would be to shoot Cophine in love for each other at different points of the story and mesh it all into one scene. Like the camera spins around them and we see them change from season 1 (this scene) to season 2 (in the lab maybe?) to season 3 (”I came back for you” or “give your sisters all my love”) to season 4 (reunion at the yurt) to season 5 (unknown future scene, yes could be their wedding). Piece together a full tribute to their endearing love despite all the obstacles they encountered; showing that no matter the circumstances, they never stopped loving each other. We witness the evolution of Cophine in one scene.

Again, I’m 110% certain that this theory of the 360° spin scene will be wrong.

But what I’m seeing thus far with Cophine season 5 releases: OB is making it right. OB is honouring their love. 

Oh gawd, please let this alone be right.
