“I used to tell Walter, ‘Never start a fight… but always finish it.’ I didn’t start this fight… but by God, I’m going to finish it.”

So like….the X-men movies kinda suck at continuity? I binge watch all six x-men movies in November when I was pretty sick, and I just saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine and I’m just kinda like???? Because it has Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool in it, but I believe that the Deadpool movie is supposed to fit into the X-Men continuity so how does that work?  And it looked like Emma Frost (she was the diamond skin girl mentioned in the movie, right?) was the same age as Scott Summers, which also….really doesn’t work?  And it’s not like this is the only movie - Days of Future Past really didn’t fit with the ending of The Last Stand, like, at all?  And how does the new movie Logan work with ANYTHING?  Am i just expecting too much because the MCU was so well planned out and executed so that everything fits together perfectly?  Is x-men even supposed to be a single continuous universe? I just have so many questions as someone who didn’t come to the fandom from comics. 

What she says: I’m fine
What she means: In the 2012 movie adaptation of Les Mis, why does Grantaire go from sitting on the front of the carriage wearing a coat and a hat to sitting in some random cafe with a girl on his knee in a matter of seconds? Was George Blagden acting as an extra and the directors just hoped we wouldn’t notice? Or were they suggesting that Grantaire couldn’t bear to see Enjolras die so as soon as the conflict started he ran away to bury his sorrows with wine and a girl? If that was the case how did it happen so quickly? How does time work in the Les Mis movie universe? At the start of the film Fantine is shown to go from fairly ‘normal’ to having a cough in just a few scenes which are probably set over a matter of days, weeks at most. Does time pass differently in France? Do they experience shorter days and shorter years? Back to Grantaire, when he kisses Mme Hucheloup off her chair why does he go from wearing a sash around his waist to not wearing one even though the shot didn’t change? Is Grantaire always doomed to have trouble in the wardrobe department?

Watching Jurassic World

A/N: I found a clip on Youtube the other day where Katie McGrath is eaten by not only one but two dinosaurs. I’ve never had the intention to watch that movie, but now? Who wants to watch Katie McGrath get eaten by dinosaurs? Then again: How would Lena watch that movie? With Kara, of course.

It was like a remake of Hitchcock’s The Birds, only more crowded and with birds the size of flying elephants. Winged dinosaurs swish above the humans that are running in panic around the street of the dinosaur resort. One of them nearly gets a hold on one boy. Was it Gray? What was the name of the other one? Zack?

Zara screams at the two hysterically: „Well, don’t just stand there!“

She stands tall and is picked by a pterodactyl, gets tossed around in the air, and is dropped into the bay. She screams and screams and screams. Three dinosaurs dive after her. One manages to catch her. Another pterodactyl? Anyway, it takes her in his beaklike snout, loses her, and grabs her with its claws under water and above the surface. And Zara screams and screams and screams. The pterodactyl is about to take off with its prey to have a snack.

From the depth of the bay, a mosasaurus emerges and devours them both. Zara’s voice dies down. Now it is the pterodactyl’s turn to scream and scream and scream.

Lena watches the scene unfold on the TV screen in Kara’s loft and is shaken. She even feels sick a little bit. How did she end up like this?

It was Lena who earlier that evening suggested to watch this movie instead of the romcom preferred by Kara. When Lena was younger, she loved Jurassic Park, not only because she had a penchant for dinosaurs but she loved to explore the science behind the story – genetics, chaos theory, biology – and the making off.

No. If Lena is honest with herself, this is not the real reason for choosing this movie for a movie night with Kara. Lena silently hoped that Kara would seek shelter at her side during the scary parts. That was the original plan. It is maybe not the most sophisticated way to woo one Kara Danvers, but Kara does make Lena feel like a clueless teenager. The plan has worked so far. Lena and Kara are sitting both on the couch, sharing a blanket and Kara is tucked tightly under Lena’s arm while hiding behind a pillow.

Then this scene happened. Look at Lena now. Goosebumps. Sweaty palms. Erratic heart beat. Pillow envy.

A tiny part of her wonders why she is so shaken by watching a fictional character getting eaten by a computer animated dinosaur. Zara is just a supporting character in Jurassic World with low potential for identification. Admittedly, there was maybe a slight resemblance to Lena – same hight, same hair colour. That’s it. More so, it was likely from the beginning that Zara would not survive this scenario.

Why does that scene make Lena feel like someone is walking over her grave?

A hand caresses her stomach. Lena turned her head to find Kara looking at her with a crinkle between her brows.

„You know, that will never happen to you. There is always a hero who will keep you safe.“

Kara looks so serious, so sincere. Lena has to smile.

„You will safe me from a flock of dinosaurs on a rampage?“

Kara scrunched up her nose. As a result, her glasses are sitting slightly askew on its bridge.

„Yes… well… at least I will let Supergirl know that she has to safe you.“

Lena bit her lip to prevent herself from laughing. The glasses are gliding further down the bridge of the nose. Lena reaches out and slips them entirely off. There is a sharp intake of breath. With a swift motion, Kara tries to get them back but Lena holds them out of her reach. In the struggle, Lena falls back on the couch, Kara drops on top of her. They are staring at each other. The glasses land with a slight clonk on a side table behind the armrest.

Now or never, Luthor!

„You truly are my hero, Kara Supergirl Danvers.“

Lena leans forward and brushes her lips against Kara’s.

I’m wondering how Logan got his driver’s license.
I mean, the man clearly knows how to drive cars and ride motorcycles, but that doesn’t mean he stood in line at the DMV like everyone else to get his license for either (because he’s practically 200 years old and he’s the Wolverine and he has no time for that bull). He has no 2-3 pieces of mail to prove where he lives because most of the time he doesn’t really “live” anywhere; he has no Social Security number because back when he was born, that system didn’t even exist. He deserves a muy grande vet pension because he fought in the Civil War, both World Wars AND Vietnam, for crying out loud; but he certainly doesn’t get that. He has no insurance of any kind. He gets zilch. Nada. Nothing. Does he just have a very convincing—albeit fake—ID, and that’s how he got a job as a chauffeur? Does anyone want to talk about this mystery with me????

I want the actual Percival Graves to be in the next fantastic beasts movie. Is he good? Bad? Does he work for Grindelwald or is he a victim of Grindelwald? Did he know Credence? What would be Credence’s reaction to seeing the real Graves after everything that happened in the first movie (lots of anger and confusion I bet)? How would Tina and Newt react?

I really hope they tie up the loose ends concerning Percival Graves well. I’m interested in who he is.

Who is your favorite Disney Villain and Princess?

I’m an orphan and I work for the Mafia, do I look like I watch/ed Disney movies? 

The Horned King & Tiana.

People think of relationships as straight, even lines. Like everything always works out, and there are never any fights, never any limbo periods, never any downward or upward spikes. The reality might be that love is always a zig zag; or, at least, the kind that’s worth it is. That’s scary, to think that nothing ever works out perfectly like it does in the movies, not even the things that you want or deserve or need.

That’s a long time since he started working…

*cough cough*

WestAllen At The Movies: Romance Edition!

Have you always wanted to draw a WestAllen version of the famous Spiderman upside down kiss, but kept forgetting? Have you always wanted to write a Pride an Prejudice WestAllen AU, but kept putting it on the backburner? This might be the challenge for you :)

It’ll be Valentine’s Day in less than a month and I thought: What better time to do the second event of the WestAllen Fun blog! It’s a smaller, more specific challenge because there is less time to prepare, but I hope just as fun!

How does it work?

Considering the day, the theme of this challenge is movie romance. What does that mean?

The idea is the take a specific (romantic) movie or “famous” movie romance and use it as inspiration for your WestAllen Fics/Edits/Drawings/gifsets/Playlists/etc. Tomorrow I’m going to post a list with movies. If a title has your interest you can claim that title. 2 claims per title are allowed (first 2 to claim a title get the title).

The list will be centered on romantic movies or movies with “famous” couples, but there are some outliers to keep things interesting :) I chose to use a list because I like the idea of their being something beyond the theme in a challenge.

However

If you have an idea, but the movie is not on the list? Go for it anyway :) You have an idea for a cute movie poster for Barry and Iris, but it’s not an existing movie? Go for it! Have a great Idea for a Westallen gifset set in the world of a particular movie, but the movie itself has little romance? Go for it! At the end of the day this is about having fun together.

Remember the movie title is just the jump off point. Be as creative as you want :)

Anything else you need to know?

More details (which hashtag to use, rules etc) soon! Whatever you end up creating, post it on Feb 14.

There’s still room on the list, so if you have suggestions for romantic movies send them my way (anon allowed)! I can’t promise it’ll appear on the list or if it does that someone will claim it, but why not take a chance. Even if you don’t have time to participate, a good idea could help someone else!

If you have questions, send them my way and I’ll do my best to answer them.

Movie Maker has decided to work with anything but my Sims videos now… And when I say Sims videos, I mean anything that I recorded while playing the game with the game’s camera… They’re AVI but it had worked fine with them before. I converted one of the videos to MP4 and tried with it in that format… Nope. Mind you, my computer got a Windows 10 update last week and this has been happening after my game crashed on Friday, but the videos play fine with VLC so I don’t think it’s my videos per say. 

I just realized something about Zootopia.

That sloth Flash, at the end Judy and Nick pull him over for speeding in what looks like a brand new top of the line sports car. He works in the DMV. My aunt works in the DMV, I have a general idea of what they make at least the people who work in the same position he does in the movie… no way he could afford that just on what he makes. Something going on there. That’s where They really needed to be looking. Flash got something going on on the side.
