Here’s a fun little observation: John Wick fights like an “action girl”.
My housemate and I watched the movie again last night and noticed that his style is like a less flashy version of Black Widow’s. He even use his legs to trap opponents. Look at those pictures up there. Isn’t that something you would expect a woman to do in an action movie?
He isn’t as muscular as most action heroes these days, so it makes perfect sense that he’d use that sort of style. I appreciate that.
(If you decide to watch this movie now, be warned; a dog is killed off camera which starts John Wick’s anger fueled quest for revenge. Yes, he is killing a man in those pictures because another man killed his dog. Dog owners will understand)
anyway you can call out lydia as much as you want for agreeing to marry alec even though she knew he was gay but tbh the only person who understood and cared enough to do anything constructive was magnus. like his own siblings knew full well what he was walking into and they knew full well that he was absolutely miserable but they let him go through with it for the same reasons that lydia did (and the same reason that alec proposed in the first place); because they’ve been taught personal desires arent important. that duty and honour matter above all else. like i dont hate any of them for not stepping in because ultimately it was hugely important for alec to come to that realisation for himself but you cant pretend that izzy and jace couldnt have said anything to lydia/alec sooner.
“Gesture of Banishing”
The hand gesture that many call demonic and the sign of the devil is ironically used in many ancient traditions to expel demons or delete thoughts and actions which are against life, peace and harmony. It was called Karana Mudra in yogic and Buddhist circles.
Also called the “The Gesture Warding off Evil”
It is made by raising the index and the little finger, and folding the other fingers. It is nearly the same as the gesture known as corna in many western countries, the difference is that in the Karana mudra the thumb does not hold down the middle and ring finger.
You can find abhayamudrâ sometimes also as a left-hand gesture. Ekajata and Yama, as well as Vajrapani and Bhutadamaravajrapani are frequently shown in this mudra.
Some rumored Suicide Squad deleted scenes (Harley/Joker):
“Joker and Harley then get into a fight, which ends with Harley pointing a gun at Joker’s head. Joker sweet-talks Harley into lowering the gun, charming her, then backhands her across the face. Afterwards he sweet-talks her again and they kiss.”
“Joker and Harley get into an argument after he rescues her in the hijacked helicopter. In early cuts he reportedly pushes her out to kill her, then the helicopter gets shot down. This was apparently reworked into the helicopter getting shot down first and Joker pushing her out to save her.”
“Joker returns during the final battle in the subway station, face half-burnt from the helicopter crash, which apparently leads to a brief altercation with the Squad. He calls for Harley to escape with him but she refuses for once in order to help her friends, and the Joker escapes after throwing a live grenade at the group to cover his own escape.”
“Removed several scenes with the Joker to repaint his relationship with Harley as more loving rather than abusive.”
Their relationship is so abusive and it is damaging that they tried to make it seem loving by taking out the straight up physical abuse and leaving in the psychological abuse, which isn’t as blatant and would have some not thinking anything of it. If you’re going to have Harley/Joker together then you show how it really is abusive physically and mentally, or don’t have them together at all (which is what I wanted cause fuck the Joker). I think another important scene that should have been kept is #3 where Harley acts out against the Joker and chooses to help her friends because it would show her overcoming his abuse and control and making her own decisions.
But overall, it’s horrible that they removed scenes in order to make their relationship seeming loving when it’s not. He’s an abusive asshole and he treats her like an object or a possession.
maybe because you love reigen its because maybe takahiro sakurai voices him?
…..that…. that is actually true….
HIS VOICE MAKES HIS CHARACTER 100X BETTER OKAY I wanna thank him for 5 minutes and tell him how much I appreciate him voicing reigen, like, I can’t even put into WORDS how much I love takahiro voicing him
His voice is a miracle, and as I’m typing this I’m smiling very hard, I just, I just appreciate seiyuus
“I regret all we’ve ever been through.” Fem!MC and Seven. MC is the one who says it.
He ceases to exist.
“God! Fucking hell, Saeyoung!”
He vanishes right then and there.
“I’m sick of this. I’m so fucking done.”
Every letter, every word, every sentence works like an eraser. Partially, he wishes for that to be actually true, to just disappear in order to not have her scream at him like that. To not have her letting him know how disappointed she is in him.
To not be that hurt when she spits out their words of disgust and anger.
“You know what?”

Ding, ding ding! 100% Deletion successfully accomplished! Action can not be undone. Thank you for using our services.
“101% even actually… I wonder if 707% would be too obvious of a joke.” Seven mutters in defeat and receives a confused, but still angry glare from the girl in front of him. She has her arms crossed and keeps eyeing up and down with disgust in her expression. It makes him feel so degraded and worthless.
“Still fooling around, I see,” she grunts while shaking her head. “You’ll never grow up, will you?”
“Does it matter? I’m not even real anymore, apparently.” the redhead sighs in defeat and shrugs his shoulders with a crooked grin that reflects his agony, his pain, his hurt.
“What even are you talking about?” she mutters in frustration, but stops him before he can answer. “Whatever. I’m done. This right here, ‘us’ or whatever this was, it never happened.”
This ‘us’ or whatever it was, was the only reason I kept on existing. The only thing that made me human, that allowed me to be part of this planet. There’s no other evidence or proof out there that I am real.
Seven keeps these thoughts to himself and he repeats them in his head over and over again as he watches the girl pick up her stuff and walk towards the door.
Every cell in him screams at him to stop her, to grab her wrist, to talk it through. But he doesn’t. He just stands there, repeating the sentences in his head over and over again, like a broken computer program. Like a video game character that spawns right inside the death trap over and over.
Try again? Failure. Repeat action? Could not transfer data.
And so he watches the evidence that he is human walk outside the door and once it crashes shut again, he turns into a ghost again.
When you’re absolutely stuck in a scene, write one of the characters in it yelling: “Makin’ pancakes! Makin’ bacon pancakes!” Then give yourself just a few minutes to write all the other characters reacting appropriately, as though that had genuinely just happened in their reality.
“Why are you so unfriendly?’ said Boromir. ‘I am a true man, neither
thief nor tracker. I need your Ring: that you know now; but I give you
my word that I do not desire to keep it. Will you not at least let me
make trial of my plan? Lend me the Ring!“
“It is by our own folly that the Enemy will defeat us,” cried Boromir. “This is no time to take bacon and put it in a pancake! How it angers me! Fool! Obstinate fool!”
And then erase the goofy stuff and go back to where you were, hopefully slightly refreshed.
This is a shorter variation on Steven Brust’s trick for when he’s stuck on a major plot point. He writes a scene in which all the characters get together and have a meal, at which they bitch about their situation, about possible solutions, and about what a jerk their author is. When the characters have agreed upon a course of action, Steve deletes the meal scene and has them enact whatever decisions were made in it.
