but i laughed so hard at this scene

anonymous asked:

halla! for the skam questions: What is your favourite song used in combination with a scene that made the scene funnier? What is your favourite song used in combination with a scene that made the scene more emotional? What is your favourite parallel on the show and why? What theme do you think was best discussed/depicted on the show? What do you love most about isak and even's relationship? sending love xxx

halla anon!! sorry for the late reply, something came up, lol. but also: good that i waited bc now i have a more fully informed reply, especially regarding the first question.

because having “lover, where do you live?” with emma and chris introducing themselves to each was genuinely so amazingly absurd, i laughed so hard (and i barely do). the whole situation with chris/emma/eva/jonas was resolved in a very humorous way, something that wasn’t necessarily the case before this season. skam is also just very good at funny moments! and i’m glad that this was the last one, lmao.

my favourite song used to make the scene more emotional would probably be lantern during minutt for minutt. such a soft and intimate song. and the swelling of the choral voices when sonja’s voice-over tells isak to just be there for even never fails to gives me goosebumps. it’s almost like the choir is singing to isak that everything comes and goes in waves but that in the end his love for even and even’s love for him will see them through it all. in general the white birch’s songs work well for emotional purposes: i loved the inclusion of their song in vilde’s clip as well.

my favourite parallel on this show.. you know in the deepest of my heart the parallels between sana and even’s backstories will always be my greatest love that was never to be explored unfortunately. but i love that even’s clip in particular had a lot of parallels to isak and even’s story in s3 in general!

best explored theme: well, female friendship and isolation was so wonderfully portrayed in s1 – especially the not villainising any ladies part and resulting in that party at iben’s (something that completely was knocked aside this season, but oh well.) i also think isak’s difficulties with his authentic self was nicely explored – like his inability to completely present himself as gay at first (bc of things we had already seen in s1 and s2) was a huge deal in s3 and you can see how it developed in him being way more confident about it in s4 (in such a short timeline as well). themes explored over multiple seasons work the best, i feel like. 

what do i love the most about isak and even.. i think the fact that they genuinely like to be together and are willing to take very mature decisions in being together. they take what they have very seriously and while that may come with its own insecurities (with even thinking he’s not good enough), it is so refreshing to see a (lgbt+) couple so well-rounded and secure. like isak said himself: they know it’s very complicated, but they’re also the best things in each other’s lives and they wouldn’t trade it for the world.  they don’t take each other for granted and that is a great message for the intended audience, teenagers!, to see. just because you’re young doesn’t mean that your relationship cannot be as serious as an ‘adult relationship’. 

thank you for these great questions, anon! <3 if anyone else would to like some questions, they can be found here. 

that was BEAUTIFUL

a very trigger ending. I was so excited when they flew to space in true trigger fashion, somewhat worried when things started to resemble klk a bit too much, even more worried when the animation was practically the same as in klk, but luckily they resolved it in the best way possible. I was laughing so hard I couldn’t hear what they were saying! Having the original opening music play through the climax is also something I love love love having in the final episode!!

Diana and Akko were gorgeous and absolutely killed my poor gay heart. The last scene was so sweet and the very very last scene simply the best way to end it on! You will be smiling and clutching your heart when you watch this!

Ok so you know that scene in “Shaun of the Dead” when they make it to the pub and they get in a fight with the zombified pub owner and Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” comes on the jukebox? And it’s just the most out of place thing for what’s happening? Well, when I’m playing SWTOR and grinding heroics or running flashpoints, I listen to my ipod on shuffle. My music is eclectic, to say the least, and the song that does what Queen’s does in the movie is…get this…Perry Como’s “Papa Loves Mambo”. I have never laughed so hard in my life. When that song came on for the first time, I was in a brutal boss fight in a 4 man flashpoint. And you know what? It made me fight so much better…after I stopped crying/laughing. Do me a favor and listen to upbeat oldies when you’re killing your enemies in SWTOR. You won’t regret it. Just twirl around killing guys as your teammates die around you while listening to fucking Perry Como. It’s the best.

Went and saw Beauty and the Beast, and I just had to share my experience because it was so pure?

So, like, I get into the theater, find myself a nice spot smack dab midscreen, which is WAY EASIER without thirty people traipsing in behind you in a group, lemme tell you, and I’m just sitting there, by my lonesome, scrolling tumblr and watching whatever weird stuff they’ve got on screen, and a family comes to sit in my row, which was the only empty one not right in front of the screen. Sat down what I thought was a seat away from me until I saw a little girl in an adorable ass red dress climbing over mom and dad to sit next to me. 

Totally fine. I was just off of center and they got to sit right in the middle of the screen, and when she finally gets settled this little girl looks up at me, with a soda half her size in one hand, and somehow both popcorn and candy in her tiny little lap, and she stage whispers to her mom:

“She’s by herself!”

Mom looks embarrassed, but I smile and wave off the apology. 

I go back to my phone, only to realize someone is tugging at my sleeve. Little girl looks up at me, all wide eyes and curiosity, and holds out a napkin filled with popcorn and chocolate. Like, I remember being a kid, and I remember how important candy and popcorn at the theater are, and I think she thought she was saving my life by offering this sustenance.

I almost fucking cried guys, kids are the best.

So I take it and thank her and let her talk my ear off for a few minutes until she needs a drink because she has been talking SO MUCH her mouth is dry. This kid is going places, guys, I’m telling you right now, because she picked up that cup the size of her torso like a champ and angled the straw just right and continued to try to talk to me around her gulps.

While this is happening, on the other side of me another mom and daughter sat down, and, turns out, the girls know each other. I’m guessing, based on the gumption of Red Dress, that they probably met in the lobby before they went into the theater. 

Girl number 2, I’ll call her Princess Dress, because it was a fantastic dress and when I told her so she proceeded to point to every princess along the neck and name them and give me their Stats, proceeds to have a conversation across me with Red Dress.

Both sets of parents were looking like they wanted to bury their heads in their hands, but I was having a blast.

Anyway, eventually lights go down, we get into the movie, and for the most part Red and Princess were content, although every so often Red made sure to pass me a handful of sticky half-melted chocolate. 

Watching a live action version of a movie that I watched for the first time when I was their age was a fuckin’ trip, man. Like. I got super emotional over things I didn’t expect to, and during the wolf scenes I was actually mildly distressed, because Princess was gripping the hand rest so hard on my right I thought she was gonna break it. Any scene I laughed or snorted at got a peal of laughter from my two new best friends, so hopefully no one has to go home and explain why I nearly snorted out my drink during “Be Our Guest” when they went for a visual gag for “After all miss, this is France!”.

During the ballroom scene, Red turned to her mom and whispered “The Beast is handsome!” and it took so much for me not to lean over and whisper back “Girl same.”

But my favorite, MY VERY FAVORITE part of this whole experience was when Gaston shot the Beast - FOR THE THIRD TIME HOLY HELL I KNEW IT WAS DARK BUT GODDAMN THIS IS A KIDS MOVIE ISN’T IT - Red patted my arm because yeah, okay, I was maybe crying a little, look, I know what happens but the movie made me feel things okay. Anyway, she like, pushes herself up in her seat and leans in close and she goes “It’s okay. He’s gonna be okay.”

The point is, children are so pure, and everyone should always watch movies with strangers.

I was just flipping through episodes on random and started laughing at this scene again because seen in a bigger context it’s just EVEN FUNNIER

since this after all ties directly into this line of thought that Yuuri has after opening up to Viktor on the beach, particularly about how people hugging him makes him uncomfortable (at least in certain situations) and about how he shields his emotions from other people from fear of appearing vulnerable and weak 

JUST

THIS POOR BOY 

HE REALLY TRIES SO HARD TO “OPEN UP MORE” AND IT TURNS INTO THIS MESS

AND OBVIOUSLY IT DOESN’T WORK AT ALL because Yuuri is not a character that can just hug things right with just about anyone, he NEEDS that special someone that makes him feel secure and comfortable, and the fact that he desperately tries to create a connection with people is just SO ENDEARING HE’S SO PRECIOUS AND HE’S TRYING SO HARD BUT TO NO AVAIL

it’s just a great scene because it shows Yuuri’s will to follow up on his promise in a way that becomes incredibly amusing while still maintaining key points in his personality and displaying the huge significance Viktor has in his life 

it just makes his relationship with Viktor even sweeter since Viktor becomes that special person in Yuuri’s life that can make Yuuri open up properly, in ways that leaves Yuuri content and comfortable and I just

THESE TWO ARE TOO GOOD
