dream casting for my characters


”Did you like question ten, Moony?” asked Sirius as they emerged into the Entrance Hall. 

“Loved it, said Lupin briskly. “Give five signs that identify the werewolf. Excellent question.” 

“D'you think you managed to get all the signs?” said James in tones of mock concern.

”Тhink I did,” said Lupin seriously, as they joined the crowd thronging around the front doors eager to get out into the sunlit grounds. “One: he’s sitting on my chair. Two: he’s wearing my clothes. Three: his name’s Remus Lupin.”

That feeling you get when you cast your characters with real actors in your mind and create the perfect dream cast…but then you take too long to write your story and the actor ages…

and your poor mind has to come to grips with that sad fantasy that if ever your story was adapted, you can’t have the actor you wanted.

ladies of ice and fire: elia martell 

Elia Martell was the fourth child and first daughter born to the ruling Princess of Dorne, and the second child to live past infancy. She was born a month premature, and her older brother Doran did not expect her to live, when he learned about her birth; she survived, however, though her health was always fragile thereafter. During her youth she was very close to her younger brother, Oberyn, to whom she was only one year apart.

When Elia reached the age of marriage, she and her brother Oberyn, together with their mother and their mother’s consort, traveled from Dorne to several potential suitors for both Elia and Oberyn. Amongst the places they visited were Starfall, the Arbor, Oldtown, the Shield Islands, Crakehall, and finally Casterly Rock. Oberyn mocked all her Elia’s suitors. In Oldtown, Elia met Baelor Hightower, whom she liked most of all her suitors. She had been half in love with him, until he farted in the presence of both her and Oberyn, leading to Oberyn naming him “Baelor Breakwind”. Elia could not look at him without laughing afterwards.

alexdanvors said: reece should just play everyone. like in the parent trap, except instead of playing a set of twins he’s all of them.

this is my dream cast. reece as every single character. i saw a post once like “you all can’t fancast reece king as every single character ever” and i was like i’ll fancast reece king as my own mother, my guy, you can’t tell me what to do


New Star Trek Series Dream Cast:

Lucy Liu as Captain Huan Lee (human) // Lisa Ray as First Officer Zina Ben Youssef (human) // Sheetal Sheth as Security Chief Lamari Ikal (betazoid) //  Samira Wiley as Lt. Commander Jill Kaln (joined trill) // Lupita Nyong'o as Doctor T’Varr (vulcan) // Godfrey Gao as Lieutenant Tosam Lubac (bajoran) // Natalie Dormer as Chief Engineer Lisabeth Minkov (human) // Ian McKellen as Holan (el-aurian)

Ugh I’m so upset about this. It’s like someone over at fox decided to create the cynical, bearded, veteran-catcher character of my dreams and cast Mark Paul fucking Gosselaar to play him. Oh, and then they stuck him in a narrative with a gorgeous, stubborn young protege whom he has to take under his wing, and topped it all off with a good swirl of fairly blatant unresolved sexual tension and a complicated hero-worship/burgeoning-friendship dynamic, and sprinkled it all with some great acting chemistry. What did I do to deserve this dear lord in heaven?


In the back of the shop, a boy with a pale, pointed face was standing on a footstool while a second witch pinned up his long black robes. Madam Malkin stood Harry on a stool next to him slipped a long robe over his head, and began to pin it to the right length.

“Hello,” said the boy, “Hogwarts, too?”


Percy Jackson Dream Cast

I re-watched the movie and I literally could not physically or mentally will myself to fall asleep because of how much it bothered me. So here I am at 5 am putting this together because it just puts my mind at ease. 

All actors are roughly the same ages as described in The Lightning Thief [because in my mind, the only way to do this series justice is by starting with young actors and aging them up through the films/show, instead of hiring a 30 year old to play a 12 year old

Percy Jackson- Jared S. Gilmore (15)

Annabeth Chase- Raffey Cassidy (13)

Grover Underwood- Terrell Ransom Jr. (13)

Thalia Grace- Katelyn Mager (15)

 [Ok so Katelyn was cast as young Thalia in the Sea of Monsters film but she got like three seconds of screen time and then they made her older, which was stupid, and Katelyn Mager should just play Thalia. As is. Un-aged.]

Luke Castellan- Robbie Kay (20)

Clarisse La Rue- Chloë Grace Moretz (19)

Again, this is my personal dream cast. I do not own these characters or these gifs/photos. 

I had a dream about this whole cast of characters that my mind invented purely for the dream and my subconscious was also nice enough to have two of the characters get homoerotic subtext. I’m so gay I even ship in my dreams. wow
