It’s only as I step inside the library — and am welcomed by a pair of dark brown eyes — that I realise how cold it was outside. My face and fingers are gently burning from the sudden contrast in temperatures and my stomach feels a bit weird (I hope it’s not a cold).
The best seat — in the back, closest to the heater — is already taken by a gigantic boy with pretty lips. I sit next to him (or, I should say, next to his legs) on the left side of the back row.
I can hear sparks crackling in my hair as I take off my big woolen scarf.
I wonder if wearing a hijab in winter feels cosy.
The girl in front of me finally takes her black jacket off and I can see lapel pins attached to it, catching the ceiling’s neon lights. The only one I can properly examine from this angle is a pink dripping heart with a black outline. In it, a mint green dripping text with a white outline reads DUMP HIM.

“There’s a fine line between love and hate. And I don’t mind. Just let me say that I like that I like that.”
“Puddin’.” She lingered in the doorway, trying to find something to
say that wouldn’t set off a tantrum or further broaden the divide
He wasn’t looking at her; his gaze was focused on
the new, even wider flat screen, where GCN was on. As if she was a mere
annoyance that he tolerated enough to let live.
It tore at her
heart and she decided to try again. Only wearing her favorite silky
night gown, she walked over to the couch and stood silent next to him.
He still paid her no mind.
She noticed an abundance of weapons
surrounding him: knives were spread on the glass table in front of the
couch and he wore his gun holster despite being in the penthouse. She
had found at least two of his razors in the bed last night.
past week Harley had tried to please him whenever she could without
success. She was overcome with guilt at her overstep that night, when he
had left in the middle of sex. Ever since then he had pushed her
away in a way he had rarely done before; he was harsh and unrelenting
when she begged him to please her, to let her make up for what she did,
but he refused her touch. At night he would push her straight off the
bed if she even attempted to snuggle up.
Harley missed his rough
touches, his attention, those lingering looks he used to give her, like a
lion waiting to pounce when she passed by.
She was determined to
gain his trust back. The part of her that Harleen controlled had
realized that his night terrors had a reason, even if he couldn’t
Even if he had pushed every memory into the far
recesses of his mind it still stayed and tore at him. She knew she had
helped him with that. During the extensive ECT at Arkham, she had
shattered his last memories, even the ones he wanted to keep.
she sunk to her knees in front of him, trying to capture his gaze. “I’m
sorry, Puddin’,” she tried again. She carefully placed her hands on his
thighs, feeling the expensive black fabric underneath her fingertips.
He tensed up, but didn’t move.
Finally he looked at her. She
didn’t recognize his gaze; it wasn’t their usual hint of mutual
understanding, an inside joke they shared. It wasn’t the way he looked
when he lusted for her or even had any sort of reaction to her behavior.
She didn’t know that look and it tore right through her heart. His blue
eyes were not only cold and distant, but strange.
she felt his hands in her hair. His fingers tightened and her heart
fluttered. He chuckled quietly, an unsettling laughter that enveloped
her in familiarity. Finally.
“What’s the matter, Harls?” He leaned forward, the sarcasm in his voice evident. “Can’t leave me alone for one second?” He pushed her away so violently her scalp burned and let go of her.
remained sitting on the floor, stubbornly staring at him. “No, I can’t!
This ain’t my Puddin’, this is just some sad guy that I don’t even
know! Snap out of it!”
He growled and stood up in one fluid motion, but she didn’t back off. “You… really are testing me.”
I’ve seen DMTNT twice, and I felt it was fitting that I give a review :) But I refuse to give spoilers. Too much was spoiled for me … I would never do that to someone else. If you want my opinion on specific things that happened in the film, message me privately. Perhaps I will do a spoilery review under the cut tomorrow. But we shall see on that.
As a whole, the film was a fantastic ride. It was so unspeakably good seeing all of these beloved characters back on the big screen in a really fun, action packed story. The pacing was good, though some parts were a little fast and some were too jumpy/could have used more detail/development. SALAZAR was an excellently terrifying villain. I do think he needed more screentime and a bit more development as well, but I thoroughly enjoyed him, as he was a MUCH better villain than Blackbeard. THE OPENING OF THE MOVIE. WOW. Just wow. That was such a strong, amazing opening that really packed a punch. Everything from the first frame to the title appearing on screen was just perfectly written and perfectly done. Some feel Salazar’s entrance is too quick, but I personally disagree. I think it added to the sailor’s fear upon experiencing his attack. Could we have used a few more establishing shots to flesh it out? Yes. They had them, and used them in the very first teaser trailer, so I don’t know why they didn’t make the final cut.
Henry is a cinnamon roll. A perfect, wonderful cinnamon role. He was everything I hoped for and more. A perfectly cast, wonderful homage to Will Turner. Just … flawless. I truly loved every moment Brenton was on screen and every bit of his Henry Turner. That boy is a gem.
Carina! She was feisty and strong, smart and really sassy. She could have used a bit more development as well (honestly I do feel like the script as a whole could have used another draft or two. So much of it felt underdone.) but I really liked her. She fit in well to the POTC universe and was truly a great character.
THE ENDING!!!! I won’t get into it here. I can’t. Not without ruining it. BUT MY GOODNESS MY GOSH MY SMOKING STARS. I CANNOT GET OVER THE ENDING. IT WAS PERFECT. FLAWLESS. JUST EVERYTHING IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN. IT WAS AMAZING. The ending packed as great of a punch as the beginning. AND THE CREDIT SCENE. HOLY SMOKES. I wont even get into it right now. It’s too good <33333
As a whole, DMTNT was a good 7.5/8 out of 10 movie. I liked the action, I liked the characters, I loved the beauty in the shots, I loved the relationships between all of the characters. I hated the writer’s blatant disregard for POTC history, causing major continuity issues. UGH. That really bothered me. I can understand not reading The Price of Freedom, because it isn’t that well known… but it was also like the writers hardly bothered to watch the previous movies. Too much was altered that absolutely should not have been.
As for Jack… Not mentioning him. Just… no. Maybe if I do that second review later on.
But it was a beautiful film. Not a good finale at all, and I wholeheartedly believe POTC 6 is coming our way someday. DMTNT is a very fun ride, one I did enjoy very much, especially the second time around. I would absolutely recommend seeing it, and bringing all of your friends. And you can even Disneybound, because we did :D
Real talk: your OCs are insanely well made, my friend. Honest to God I am very surprised with the amount of effort you put into them- they're so perfect it looks like you nailed it twice on completely effortless attempts, both in your first and second designs. I take my hat off to you. I have always disliked the fanon 2P designs and personalities, but yours are very intriguing and interesting. Do you work with this kind of thing professionally?
(adm: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! omfg ofmag omfg thank you so much!!!!! oh my gosh ;w; omg thank you so much omggggg this ask totally made my night!!! I’m really happy you like them!!! This is my first time actually [and accidentally tbh] using OCs for something so I’m really relieved they’re interesting to you ;w; no, I don’t work with this professionally but hope to do so one day!!)
