emotional and surprising

I really like the image of Vader rolling Luke’s name around in his head, saying it out loud to himself, testing it, hearing it. 

Luke. Luke Skywalker. My son’s name is Luke. 

Practicing different ways to say it. Maybe he tries it out in all of his different, typical Vader tones. You know, in the way he addresses Imperial Officers or Rebel Prisoners or even the Emporer. None of them probably sound right. 

Saying it quietly, in a gentle voice. It’s unfamiliar and maybe uncomfortable because he hasn’t been gentle in years but it’d sound right and good. 

I like the idea that there’s a build-up for Vader to that first moment. That the moment when he is looking at his son and calls him by his name for the first time, that it would be this important moment for him. One that he has thought a lot about and prepared for. 

And that every time he says it is precious. That he just keeps trying to get it right because this is his son and his name is Luke.

Some more character appreciation sketches for Disney’s Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty) and some Lady Tremaine (Cinderella). Mainly exploring different expressions for her appreciation blog ( maleficent1959 ) Feel free to request if you wanna see other doodles!

Bonus! Maleficent finally gets invited to a gathering– it’s all she ever wanted to begin with. The surprise birthday party was her dear friend, the Evil Queen’s idea~ The last sketch was inspired by this song (it came out a year after SB was released!)

im just thinking about how maggie has probably always hated valentines day and never understood why people were so obsessed with it, its not like she didnt have someone to share it with, she did, she always had someone she could be with, to live with, but now she finally gets it cus now she has someone she can’t live without

your fave is problematic: travis willingham

  • wears shirts that say things like ‘blood sweat respect’ but is still a giant marshmallow
  • makes the 👀  face every time his wife flirts with a fictional character
  • almost got trinket killed that one time
  • bent a mechanical pencil in half with one hand
  • didn’t know laura was nominated for an award until she told the rest of the cast during the show
  • gives literally no warning before he hits you with those surprise emotional moments (see: “you know i’m not scared of death, but I don’t wanna die from Kevdak. not him”)

MOKONA NO. NO WAIT. 

DO WE HAVE TO? 

I suppose we have exhausted absolutely everything Piffle has to offer at this point BUT STILL. IF THERE WAS ONE WORLD I WISH WE COULD STAY IN FOREVER, IT WOULD BE THIS ONE. 

But I suppose the heartbreak awaits. 

Either way, it’s precious that Syaoran is struck with INSTANT PANIC over the thought that he has to pick out a gift for Yuuko. 

I’M RIGHT THERE WITH YOU SYAORAN. THAT WOULD BE TERRIFYING. 

He’s also the only one to consider the finer implications of abandoning a MOVEABLE HOUSE and just never returning it. WITH GOOD REASON. IT’S KIND OF RUDE TO SAY THE LEAST.

But Mokona is nothing but Chaotic and TIME DOESN’T WAIT FOR THINGS LIKE RULES AND CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS SO IT’S TIME TO LEAVE. 

This might just be the most graceful exit they’ve ever been able to pull off. 

I MEAN SAKURA IS CONSCIOUS AND EVERYTHING SO THAT’S ALWAYS SOMETHING. 

“That the Japanese film is known at all in the West is due mainly to the pictures of Akira Kurosawa. That I am known both here and abroad is also mainly due to him. He taught me practically everything I know, and it was he who first introduced me to myself as an actor. Kurosawa has this quality, this ability to bring things out of you that you never knew were there. It is enormously difficult work, but each picture with him is a revelation. When you see his films, you find them full realizations of ideas, of emotions, of a philosophy which surprises with its strength, even shocks with its power. You had not expected to be so moved, to find within your own self this depth of understanding.” - Toshirô Mifune (April 1, 1920 - December 24, 1997)

one of my favorite things that has developed from all the text communication is the adaption of using just exclamation points or question marks as a reaction like

!!!!

is so evocative of the pure emotion of startled surprise or anxiety or whatever, usually context dictates, but it’s just so perfect, no words are needed, it’s all right there and then

???

like pure unadulterated confusion right there when you don’t even need the question you just need the ATTITUDE of the question, and there’s a sliding scale of confusion too, like ? is just a simple hey what and ???? is OMG WTF IS GOING ON YO, and you can’t do that even with the exclamation points like ! looks pretty silly on its own you have to have several !!!!!

anyway this is me just being kind of excited about the transformation of our written language
