but back to this scene which is

anonymous asked:

I agree that the Keith and Allura scenes this season seemed forced, especially if the creators are going for romance. Which is annoying bc Shallura can be woven easily into the story w/out taking up screentime: a smile at the end of a scene, some banter here, a pat on the shoulder there, maybe add some googly eyes/blushing. Shallura can be subtext & still work. Whereas the K/allura scenes announce THIS IS ROMANCE and stop any forward motion of the plot or character development.

I understand your pain anon. It’s all gonna be okay. May I present a list of possible shallura scenes that could have been included/will be included in my season two fix-it fic?

  • shiro and allura reunion with an actual hug
  • shiro and allura arguing over zarkon being the black paladin
  • arguing over their differing views on the galra; “you’re not the one they tortured!” “i’m the one who lost my entire people!” + make up hurt comfort scene
  • shiro and allura finally addressing the fact that she sacrificed herself to save him
  • scenes of their relationship being strained and how that affects the rest of the team
  • them working through their issues to be better, stronger co-leaders of voltron
  • allura helping shiro with his connection to the Black Lion bc her life force is tied to the lions and she actually knew zarkon before he turned evil!!
  • shiro and allura talking about the whole “tracking thing” and him talking her out of leaving the ship because “they might be tracking us through my arm, but you don’t see me going anywhere, do you? the team needs you, allura… i need you.” 
  • getting backstory about shiro’s family on earth/seeing allura actually grieve her father
  • “look, i know i never knew king alfor, but if he was anything like you, he was a great man. i know he’s proud of you, allura. it’s impossible not to be.”
  • them talking about the team going into what may be their last battle
  • them talking about keith bc of allura’s issues of him and shiro’s support of him and ultimately vowing to look out for him together
  • sHIRO SAYING HE WANTS ALLURA TO PILOT THE BLACK LION IF ANYTHING HAPPENED TO HIM BC IT MAKES 100000x MORE SENSE
  • allura crying when she sees that shiro is gone; her holding his chair was perfection

So basically the “mind the gap” heard during the Garridebs scene in The Final Problem meant:

“There’s going to be a gap between episode 3 and 4”

aka we’re totally getting Johnlock on January 29th?

which means I might have my life back and be able to sleep in a week??

Sounds crazy.
I’m in.

@alynna5 since I’m suffering on mobile and can’t post a picture to your ask, here is a picture of your ask and a picture of some written stuff from this evening. Since it was taken on mobile I have no idea how that is going to look, so I am sorry in advance if it’s really squished and small.

The chapter is 10k as of now and I’m in a weird position because I’ve written the beginning, stopped because I got stuck, and then skipped to the start of the ending scene (which has proved up be a lot longer than anticipated but is looking like it’s about to wrap up soon). I’ll have to go back and write the middle afterward. I’m anticipating 20k but I don’t know if that’s a good estimate or not. I’m being very slow with this and it’s frustrating, but I’m still progressing bit by bit, and I’ve written a lot that I’m proud of, so I think that will make up for it.

This chapter will also earn its M rating. :)

Thoughts and Impressions from the new promo:

-I came to the hardcore realization today that the first episode AT LEAST will have a lot of Bellarke-all-on-their own scenes (and maybe more depending on how long they try to keep this problem to themselves). Bellamy and Clarke are rarely alone together in a scene and when they are, you know what they’re usually doing? HUGGING AND TALKING ABOUT FEELINGS AND STUFF.

-Is it Raven that says “from the ashes, we will rise?” Because I LOVE THAT.

-it appears that Raven notices the rising radiation levels concurrently with Clarke telling Bellamy about the end of the world—as in, she figures out on her own that radiation levels are rising which could lead to some tension if Bellamy and Clarke come back and pretend nothing is wrong. (I also wonder at the timing of Raven happening to notice the Geiger counters. Is this something to do with her ALIE-enhanced brain?)

-“Clarke and Bellamy need to decide…” yaaaaas

-the scenes in Polis from what I’m assuming is early in the first episode look amazing and I can’t wait

-Octavia looking normal and talking to Clarke and Bellamy? From early in the season or later?

-highkey excited to see Echo attempt to threaten Clarke’s life

-I’m curious about the scenes that look like they take place in the dead zone?

-Eliza is so frickin cute oh my

-Jasper + Raven brotp/otp (I still don’t know which)

-I would love it if Clarke and Bellamy decide to tell Raven because she’s a genius, but she’s either like “I know already” or she brings it up before they can

-it’s SUCH A RELIEF to see Clarke having a breakdown and actually feeling things

-confused because the lighting of the scene with her clearing the desk and putting her face in her hands is the same as the hand-nuzzle from the first trailer, but the clothes are different? Either they start taking clothes off to show their vulnerability or Clarke and Bellamy spend a LOT of alone time in that room, comforting each other and…stuff

anonymous asked:

What is the Taylor Swift debacle? I wasn't aware Jensen had refused to say those lines...?

Ah, I went searching through my blog for the receipts on it, but I couldn’t find them… I’m sure they’re out there somewhere, but I can’t recall his exact words, or which con the comments came from

I do recall that the whole TSwift debacle was partly responsible for spawning the whole @nohomointern phenomenon, which is another matter entirely…

Because Jensen argued that Dean wouldn’t do that. And TPTB argued back that yes, he would

Because Jensen didn’t see the moment the way WE saw it:

http://mittensmorgul.tumblr.com/post/110078414335/littlehollyleaf-bakasara-defilerwyrm-sorry-to

http://susurrantpetrichor.tumblr.com/post/110297995640/its-a-new-soundtrack-i-could-dance-to-this-beat

And it was important enough to the writers, directors, and everyone else that they went back and filmed that scene after the fact.

Now nobody thinks Jensen even agrees with that decision, to this day. Nobody thinks that he understands (or should even HAVE TO understand) the binders full of metas that we’ve written over that ONE SCENE.

That one scene that we know was not just a throwaway scene, because of the stuff we know happened behind the scenes just to get it made in the first place.

Jensen’s opinion on it, and his understanding of it, was irrelevant. It happened. He did his job. He acted the scene, and we watched it.

It’s not Jensen’s job to interpret and analyze the text he’s a part of creating. That’s our job as consumers of the text. Expecting Jensen to do our jobs for us is just silly.

Okay so I will admit that before my days of realizing the subtext of this show I didn’t realize that this entire episode is basically just showing Irene Adler as the female mirror of Sherlock. But just look at this scene that goes back and forth between these takes. John is dressing up Sherlock for his his “battle”. John punches Sherlock causing him to have a bloody cheek, which Sherlock will use as a disguise to aide his way into meeting Irene. 

Then we have the takes of Irene and Kate. Kate is dressing up Irene for her “battle” and what color lipstick does Irene choose? “Blood.” Kate is also Irene’s “Live-in P.A.” and they also hint that they have some sort of intimate relationship going on some sort of level from how they address each other. 

So like, the fact that even till S4 people still believe that Sherlock and Irene basically love each other or in cahoots with one another kind of baffles me because like?? She explicitly tells John in this episode that she is gay and we get several scenes where Sherlock & Irene mirror each other and even some scenes where Sherlock actually looks terrified of Irene. I don’t know guys like I figured it was obvious, even to us straight folk.

k but like remember the scene in the help where the evil white lady was talking to her maid and the maid said “I have twins and they’re both on honor roll and we can almost afford both of thier college educations but we just need that last 77 dollars” (which was roughly 500 back then) and the lady said “well, I’m a good person and it wouldnt be very christian of me to give you hand outs instead of letting you earn it on your own :) “ and we were all like “fuck you” to her in the audience but like. that rhetoric still exists. with the nicest most progressive people that rhetoric is the one that hurts the most. 

the idea that lifting a finger to help someone is ‘oppressing them’ both sons on honor roll. both sons have a scholarship. the woman was willing to work extra to pay. but no, millie saw it as a handout. 

and then i just think of baby boomer parents. how our generation is entering a crazy world that is still being fucked up by thier financial decisions. how there are kids in college and highschool dying on thier feet of stress. and they tell us that we shouldnt want any ‘hand outs’. no. its not a hand out. we’re fucking working. we’re working, and stressing, and trying to do everything to make it in a world you ruined before we even had a chance to touch it. 

I’ve been thinking about this scene again (constantly since Wedensday tbh) and then I thought:

What if Victor looks so confused here because Yuuri is actually speaking Japanese now that he’s really drunk and can’t even tell the difference between languages?

What’s interesting is that when Yuuri speaks here

he reverts back to his Kyushu/Saga accent (dialect?). It’s not something you can translate but it’s totally there if you understand Japanese. Mind you, you can’t do a Japanese dialect in English (and it’s assumed that they communicate in English) which means that Yuuri would indeed have to be speaking Japanese here.

So the initial surprise when Victor hears this

isn’t necessarily Victor being stunned at the request. If anything, it’s him going “What in the name of the Lord is this boy saying?”

Need more proof?

It’s only after Yuuri asks him in English

that Victor’s expression changes to this

and suddenly everything makes sense.

so people have pointed out that isak was born at 21:21 and genesis 21 is called the birth of isaac, and that the pool scene from the 21:21 clip in which isak and even first get together symbolizes baptism, which in turn symbolizes rebirth, as isak starts the process of accepting himself.

the o helga natt clip also follows the birth/rebirth theme. it starts at a christmas concert - christmas celebrates the birth of jesus. it’s raining, so the water motif representing baptism is back. when isak storms out, the flashbacks play in reversed chronological order, like a rewind of his history with even, up until 21:21 when isak finds even where they first met and they get to start again from the beginning. 

my favorite part is that skam has no scruples about using the birth of jesus as a metaphor for isak and even getting back together, and that in this analogy they’re literally jesus. to sum up: skam made christmas gay, jesus gay, even dressed up as god so god is also gay. merry christmas

what Yuri really meant?

I just watched ep11 and can I just say something?

I don’t think Yuri wants to break up with Victor, why?

let’s leave all the negative emotions throughout the episode aside and focus on the last scene and preview

when he told victor that he wants to end it which could mean many things besides ending a relationship. In fact to break up is a whole different word which is ‘wakare’ and Yuri said ‘Owari ni shio’

what I think is that Yuri meant is either 

a. Them being a coach and student but they’d still be together. Maybe Yuri saw the way Victor watched the others skate and felt like Victor wanted to go back to skating? because just look at Victor’s face while he watched them skate! and Yuri probably can understand what Victor feels by now. So, when Yuri said it’s the final event, he meant the final show as them being a coach and student

b. this is a wild guess (but kubo sensei is full of surprises) and maybe Yuri meant coming out as a couple? because look at what he said in the preview 

now (if you watched too many animes or jdramas like you had no life like me) this would sound like something one of the couple saying before stepping into a more positive step in their relationship

ps. Victor’s face does not show a shocked expression of someone who was asked to break up but rather is surprised by the request. so It could be both theories 

also 

idk if I am looking too much into this but the curtains and light are a symbol to opening up to a better future.

I highly doubt the show would end with a break up, kubo had recommended watching the last episode after credits. so I am sure she has a great surprise for us 


edit: after coming to more realization, I remembered there is a duet version of stay close to me on the ost so maybe it is for them to skate to on the last episode and they decide to be a pair skating team instead of coach and athlete?

another edit: seems like pair skating for pairs of the same gender is not allowed but I still think that the after credit scene Kubo recommended us to watch is them pair skating to stay close to me. so maybe after GPF is finished and late at night they go in there alone and skate to it? 

A CONCEPT.

okay everyone settle in and listen to how QUEENIE JUST FUCKING REKT NEWT.

People ALOT OF PEOPLE like to label Queenie as the “dumb blonde sister” when in actuality she’s brilliant and not just because she can read minds. She is seen sewing her dress, but also has fashion/ sewing magazines all over the house and on her desk at work. Shown by her gorgeous dress she’s FUCKING GOOD AT IT. She’s also great at pastries which Jacob I’m-opening-a-bakery-I-love-pastries notes. She has sewing supplies on her desk too. She was based a little bit on Marilyn Monroe who people labelled as a dumb blonde but who was FUCKING EDUCATED CLEVER AS HELL (good job JK you slay queen slay).

So back to this scene. Newt is trying to sneak out and has just put his hand on the door. Queenie can read minds and she obviously knows he’s about to sneak out but she knows her sister is going to help him find his beasts and he NEEDS that help. JK Rowling wrote in the script that when Tina sees that Newt is trying to sneak out she’s disappointed in him. BACK TO QUEENIE: so rather than just yell “everyone this plant dork is trying to leave” she subtly reads that he’s going to and asks this seemingly innocent question that draws everyone attention to him. She’s so considerate in this aspect even though she’s ratting him out to Tina. She doesn’t want him to look bad because he’s trying to leave. She knows that he’s not a bad person he wants to leave for noble reasons, but he should take into consideration that he doesn’t need to do everything alone. Also it’s a nice question to begin with because she’s actually taking into consideration what pastry he likes. When I first saw this in the trailer I thought “oh she’s being really nice and asking him” WHEN REALLY, GUESS WHAT, SHE’S BEING CLEVER AS FUCK. Queenie demonstrates this quality all the time in the film, like when she says “ladies things” to get out of revealing Newt’s briefcase or uses her feminine charm to distract her boss. She’s super intelligent to be able to do wandless magic, complicated wandless magic and is powerful enough to feel it rooms/levels away from her sister when Tina gets sentenced to death. 

In short she’s savage as hell. 

whoop here we go

what’s up my guys it’s time for an analysis

So I’ve been wondering a lot of things since the preview from episode 11 and here’s where I stand:

This scene is definitely a flash back. This was either after the competition which Yuuri and Yurio participated in Hasetsu

OR

From when Viktor left Yuuri to go check on Makkachin

Both are very possible since it would be snowing around the time of both (it snowed in Hasetsu in April check episode one)

So next we have this scene:

First off I’m screaming because RING

But I think we will see a very confident Yuuri next episode. He doesn’t have a sign of worry or anxiety. He looks determined.

This boy is ready to kick some ass and marry his fiancé. I think we’ll see a Yuuri similar to episode 6 where he was very confident but I think it will feel more natural.

NEXT is this scene:

Yuri looks very shocked. Here I believe he may be watching Otabek skate and be surprised at his routine. Other people have pointed out that he may have been looking at his score and it may have been lower than expected. This one I can’t for sure say one or the other since both are very possible.

Lastly is this:

In this scene, Viktor looks to be just as confident as Yuuri. This to me may show a very sweet moment between the two. Almost like they are saying “We’re in this together.” I believe that as Viktor has mentioned, he has to utmost confidence in Yuuri and his decisions and I think we’ll see this here.

Two more days until episode 11 so hold on tight my dudes :)

Hey, do you guys remember the first scene we ever saw in Yuri on Ice? You know the very first one in the first episode. The one where we see Victor skate on a dim rink with Yuuri watching him and commentating on it as a narrator?

It’s been 11 episodes since that first scene but I think it remains relevant. In fact, I believe that it’s shown at the very beginning of the anime because it’s the beginning of the story - the story told by Yuuri about how meeting Victor changed his life. In a way the entire anime is told like someone recalling their past - like someone nostalgically looking back on their life.

So I went back to that scene and I noticed something interesting.

This line is in present tense.

Meaning that when Yuuri is looking back on his life and his journey to get where he is now, Victor is still with him.

Yuuri then switches back to past tense, which now serves as an introduction to the story he’s about to tell. It’s the story of how he always admired Victor, how he met him, how Victor became his coach and everything after that. We know that story - that’s the entire anime.

These 20 short seconds set the tone for the entire show.

There are only three short lines in this first sequence but I think they are hugely important bits of foreshadowing.

And that includes foreshadowing for the ending. Because look at Yuuri’s face and how happy he is - all thanks to Victor. The sequence ends with Yuuri wearing this expression:

Determination? Motivation? Confidence? All of the above?

It’s a subtle presentation of what Victor gave him - or rather, what Victor helped him find within himself. Notice how there’s nothing suggesting any negative feelings here?

That’s because Yuuri’s story will end well, without sadness or pain or regret and we can already tell just through this sequence.

Now, let me tie this back to episode 11.

Yuuri watches Victor throughout the Short Programs and concludes that Victor misses the sport and realizes that he can no longer keep him to himself, away from doing what he seems to love so much. He decides that he needs to let go of Victor after the Grand Prix Final.

Which leads him to say that infamous line:

And now, Yuuri expects Victor to just nod and say “Yes, I’ve wanted to go back to figure skating but I was afraid to tell you. I’m glad you understand, let’s split up after the final.” or some other BS like that.

And this is where that first screenshot, the first line ever pronounced in the show comes into play.

He never fails to surprise me.

Because Yuuri is so convinced that Victor wants to skate again, so sure that Victor can’t stay with him when he retires after the Grand Prix Final, that when Victor tells him that he doesn’t want to skate competitively anymore, that he wants to be with Yuuri even if he’s no longer his coach that it is nothing short of a surprise.

I just wanted to put that out there in case you were still worried about the outcome of that conversation.

Victor never fails to surprise Yuuri, his genuine, unconditional love being perhaps the greatest surprise of them all.

Watch: This video of a woman’s racist rant at a shopping center shows how easy it is to be harassed just about anywhere if you’re not white

In a now-deleted Facebook post, user Renee Buckner shared the video and described the scene. "I had to get back on FB, to expose this racism in America/Louisville,“ she said in the post, which was picked up by local and national media outlets. "If we ignore it, it will never go away."

WATCH THE VIDEO

You know that part when Klaus is trying to get the stovetop to work, and it erupts into flames, and he jumps back and stares at it until Violet comes over and covers it with the pot before putting a hand on his shoulder?? That scene just kills me. Such a small little detail can show so much. It really reminds you the extent to which the kids have been traumatized

Guys, Grindelwald has only been in New York as long as Newt

The first scene in the movie shows the back of Grindy’s head (before he takes Graves’s form) and he attacks 5 Aurors. According to the screenplay, this scene is somewhere in Europe e.i. not New York

The interesting part that isn’t made explicit in the movie is this attack happened the night before Newt arrived in New York because

scene 2 (which is Newt arriving in New York) is set the very next morning

Grindelwald arrived in New York around the same time Newt did. (possibly on the same boat, even…?)

So this means

  • Grindelwald attacked and stole Percival’s identity sometime between his attack in Europe and ‘Mr Graves’ at the obscurist disturbance the next day.  
  • The amount of time Grindy spent with Credence is dramatically reduced, compared to some other theories I have read. 

  • Also brings back the question as to why Grindelwald took Graves’s place and not Tina’s…

Just something I think about alot.

Favourite Acting Scenes – Isak and Even meet in the schoolyard (9.10 part 4)

Also known as that post in which I make use of my English lit degree to overanalyse everything.

So here it comes: the scene, in which everything is laid bare and has been episodes in the making. You get the script, but as far as you can see, there is only one line for one of you. That means that the rest of the scene hinges upon you, the actor, your eyes, your body movements, your energy. Throughout the series, you’ve had moments in which moments of quietness were needed, but none as long as this one. To really make it work, it’s all about you and your fellow actor. As mentioned in @softnorwegianslovely post  the trust has been established: you know what you’re both comfortable with and what you can do without breaking the scene. You can challenge each other, and you have each other’s back; so you can make this as intense as possible. We as an audience have to keep in mind; it could be that the music was played during the filming of this scene, but it’s not the only sound they would’ve heard. 

So how is it possible that this scene feels so particularly intense, even when you disregard the music? I think that one of the reasons that makes you feel it so deeply is because of its use of the five senses in order to focus on feeling. Feeling that you’re not alone is so different from knowing that you’re not alone.

Regardless of whether Even was really going to take that final step or not, Isak is scared out of his mind after receiving that text message. As a person who has the tendency to assume the worst, as evidenced by his inability to see that people aren’t always mad at him for stuff he does, for Isak to see that bench to be empty has to be the most horrible feeling in the world. You feel that his heart just sinks right into his stomach; until he remembers Even’s ridiculous towel dispenser flirting move – maybe he’s to be found there. And then, as if the stars aligned for just that moment, Even is there.

The tiniest hint of a smile is found in Tarjei’s mouth and eyes, and he makes the relief feel tangible; Even is shocked into a motionless state, his depression clearly has taken a heavy toll on him with his red-rimmed eyes. But still, they walk towards each other. Both in different mind-sets; Even terrified and maybe unable to comprehend what’s going to happen here, while Isak is slowly taking in the fact that Even’s still here. They keep looking at each other.

Now, the first time I saw this scene I was confused as to what Isak was doing here; he’s not kissing his cheeks but seems to be ‘nosing’ them. But rewatching it a few times, one edit with regular street sounds in particular, made me realise that Isak slowly wants to make sure that Even physically and emotionally feels that he’s not alone. And even for himself, this is the case: Isak needs to feel Even is there, he isn’t gone yet again, he’s right there. We need to see this in close-up.

So first are touch and smell; cheeks upon cheeks, noses upon noses as they are so fond of doing. Can you feel me, Even? How close we are to each other? There’s no space between us. And when he’s sure Even feels him – because Even leans into him in small increments, brushing his nose ever so slowly over his cheek – then he moves on to touch and sight and hearing. His hands make sure Even looks up, into his eyes. Can you see me, Even? I’m still here. See me here so close to you.

And then he mentions a few of the most wonderful words you can hear in this universe and all the parallel ones.

You’re not alone.

What a beautiful reaction from Henrik here: he listens, takes it in, and closes his eyes as if it’s too good to be true. Ever so slowly, they move on to touch and taste. Isak takes the initiative, kisses Even very carefully and only twice. I’d like to kiss you so much more. If you’ll let me. But that’s all they need for this moment. Then there’s the eye contact again; Isak already almost falling against Even, seeing his face and those wonderful eyes again. Until now they’ve only given the barest touches to each other, but now that’s not enough anymore.

Tarjei and Henrik’s amazing chemistry, trust and ability to show the feelings and emotions behind this scene without saying anything made this such a special scene. Lesser actors would not have been able to convey such intensity in a scene without dialogue.

So Isak envelops Even into his arms, and Even reaches around him to tightly hug him back. And isn’t that one of the most wonderful feelings in the world? When you’re completely surrounded by someone’s smell, and touch them by taking them in your arms, and hear their breath pushing out in relief? Now you not only know you’re not alone, but you can actually feel it.

What a Helga Natt indeed.
