Here are some LGBT movies I’ve watched !!

Top picks (in alphabetical order)

Brokeback Mountain (2005)
Who hasn’t seen this? Two shepherds and their tumultuous love story over the years. 

But I’m a Cheerleader (1999)
Girl gets sent to a boot camp meant to alter her sexuality. Funny and aesthetic and really cheesy but worth the watch.

anonymous asked:

Prompt! Isak loves to wear Even's hoodie/sweater, he feels comfy and protected? He wears all the time, it's a little big for him but he doesn't care. And Even loves to see him wear his clothes.

“That’s mine,” Even says suddenly, narrowing his eyes. Isak scoffs, but a blush starts to creep onto his cheeks. 

“Nei.” He tries to sound shocked, but he always has a way of overdoing it when he’s lying. Even smiles, giving a soft little laugh. He pokes Isak in the chest.

“That’s my sweatshirt. You stole it.” The younger boy shakes his head, frowning.

“Pretty sure it’s mine.” He shifts on the bed, so he’s facing Even more directly. They’re lying next to each other, watching some movie Even insisted on. Isak doesn’t care for movies much, but he’ll take any excuse to lie around with Even for a few hours.

“Then I must own an identical one,” Even says, and Isak shrugs.

“Makes sense.”

“Mine’s been missing for a little while though.” His fingers are running through Isak’s hair, lazy and slow.

“That’s too bad.” Even leans toward him, pressing a small kiss to his cheek. Then, the corner of his mouth. Isak turns his head, trying to meet his lips. Even pulls back though, just slightly, and Isak pouts.

“It’s too big for you, you know,” Even says, and Isak rolls his eyes, sighing.

“Ja,” he says, exaggerating. “That makes it better.”

“When did you steal it?”

“You…slept over. Last week. And I might’ve taken it after we got out of the shower. Maybe.” Even laughs, and Isak smiles. “It smells good.”

“You can keep it,” he says, brushing a strand of Isak’s hair out of his face. The younger boy lets out a nervous laugh, blush deepening.

“No, I was…I was just playing around, you can have it back,” he says, almost flustered, and Even smiles.

“I know. It looks good on you though.” Isak covers his face with one hand, even the tips of his ears are red. He’s smiling so wide Even can see his teeth, just barely.

“Stop it,” he says, and Even kisses his forehead.

“Love you. Even if you’re a thief.” Isak tilts his head back, looking him in the eye.

“Love you too.”

"Are you sure that you’re okay, baby?”

No joke, you were pretty sure that this boy had asked this at least five times in the last ten minutes. Despite Warrens bad boy, ‘look at me the wrong way and I’ll kill you’ exterior, he was actually such a big teddy bear. Also, though he may seem fearless with those piercing eyes and his tough body-language, he got scared quiet easily, though he didn’t show his fright very often. But tonight was definitely one of those nights.

“You’re the one who wanted me to sleep in here, Warren,” You sighed as you climbed on to his mattress, pulling the covers out from under you and sitting on the cool sheets. “not the other way around.”

Warrens wings bristled behind him as he crossed his arms over his bare chest, a playful glare set on his face as he walked over to turn the light off. It was pitch black within a few seconds, and you snuggled deeper into the bed as you closed your eyes. Though when a heavy weight suddenly fell on top of you, your eyes snapped open and you sat up as strong arms wrapped around your waist.

“Do you want the lights on, Warren?” You questioned with another sigh, turning your body to face your boyfriend, only to be brought close to him. “No, I’m not scared, you are.” Warren denied as he held you close to his chest, his wings cocooning you in a veil of warmth as he buried his face into your neck.

“You sure? I can always turn the lamp on.”

“Leave it off,” Warren mumbled, pressing a gentle kiss to the base of your neck as you wrapped your arms around him. “I’ll be perfectly fine, I just wanna make sure that you're—”

A scratch against the window suddenly cut him off, and you noticed at once all of the muscles in his body tense in fright. The grip that he had on you tightened significantly, making you choke out a small gasp and repeatedly slap his bicep, making his grip loosen just a bit. The feathers on his wings ruffled against your exposed neck, the feeling making you shiver as you turned to your scared boyfriend with a glare, and he grinned at you apologetically.

“Let go of me.”

“No.”

“I can’t breath.”

“I don't—”

“Warren Kenneth Worthington!” You threw your arms, with much difficulty, into the air as you tired to shimmy your way out of Warrens arms. Eventually your feet hit the wooden floorboards, and you dashes towards the nearest lap, turning it on immediately. The dim light shone throughout the room, making the glare on your face deepen with the shadows.

“Not scared my ass.”

Hey, you're German, right? I've got a huge favour to ask of you. I've been studying German for a few years, and I plan on studying there for a year. Before that, I wanna improve my language skills, so I've been wondering if you could tell me about some good original German movies? I don't want to watch dubbed ones, I've heard they're horrible. Thank you so much! Love your blog, by the way.

Dubbed movies aren’t actually half bad - at least to movies dubbed in other languages. Trust me, I’ve watched both Spanish and French dubbed movies, they were way worse. This is what we like to call “Jammern auf hohem Niveau” - complaining even though everything is pretty good. You’ll find that Germans are a people of complainers; we like to complain about everything. We are never content :) 

Still, I’m really really excited that you’re interested in my culture and HELL YES THERE ARE A BUNCH OF AWESOME GERMAN MOVIES. Here are some highly acclaimed ones and some of my favourites, I hope all links work. 

  • 12 Meter ohne Kopf (a movie about a German pirate, who allegedly walked 12 meters after being beheaded in order to save his crew)
  • Auf der anderen Seite (a really bautiful sort of episodic movie connecting the lives of three families, both German and Turkish)
  • Barfuss (a movie about a girl suffering from PTSD, who is saved mostly accidentally from committing suicide by a dude cleaning the clinic she is in, and then follows him around everywhere, and they fall in love. Seriously, onely one of two movies by Til Schweiger worth watching)
  • Buddenbrooks (the story of a very rich merchant family and their downfall…a really famour book adaptation)
  • Das Boot (a movie about a German submarine and its crew during World War II. 100& must-see)
  • Das Experiment (A movie about a psychology experiment in prison, and how people react when given free reign over others. This should come with a huge trigger warning. It’s awesome, but also really super disturbing)
  • Das Leben der Anderen (You might’ve heard of that one, since it received an Oscar. It deals with surveillance in East Germany, and is, also, a must-see).
  • Das weiße Band (A movie about the oppressive and rigid society pre-World War I children grew up in.)
  • Das Wunder von Bern (This movie mixes the football world championships of 1954 (soccer for heathens who call other stuff football) and the story of a family that has to re-learn to live with each other when the father comes home after being a war captive for like…12 years MUST SEE)
  • Der Baader Meinhof Komplex (movie about famous German left extremists, the RAF and their terrorist attacks)
  • Der Schuh des Manitu (THE single best German comedy to ever exist. It makes fun of Cowboy movies/books that are super popular in Germany. You’ll cry of laughter seeing Native Americans with a Bavarian accent - which also means your language level should be really high, or you won’t understand a thing. Uh, obviously don’t watch if you think white comedians playing Native Americans is racist even when it’s satire)
  • Der Untergang (the last days in thr life of Adolf Hitler. You’ll probably have heard of that one, too. MUST SEE)
  • Die Blechtrommel (God, I don’t know how to describe this one. Basically, a movie about a child who decides he doesn’t want to grow anymore and observes the world of the adults around him?)
  • Die Fälscher (again, dealing with World War II, and people in concentration camps who were tasked with copying money of other countries)
  • Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei (a movie about three rebels who break into rich people’s houses only to rearrange their furniture and tell them to revise their morals - until one of them catches them in the act and they abduct him for a weekend. MUST SEE)
  • Die Feuerzangenbowle (THE classic movie. about the German school system. An older guy pretending to be a student at an elite high school. Also gave the name to a drink you will find a lot on Christmas markets)
  • Effie Briest (another novel adaptation about a young woman whose marriage is arranged and who loses everything when she cheats on her husband)
  • Ein Freund von mir (two guys who are completely different building a very strange friendship)
  • Elementarteilchen (about the lives of two brothers who were separated after birth, and the completely different lives they lead)
  • Fack Ju Göhte (no links yet, it only came out last year, a new comedy about the German school system, and absolute must-see, if you happen to find a link one day)
  • Gegen die Wand (a Turkish girl fake-marrying a German addict in an attempt to escae her family. MUST SEE)
  • Goodbye Lenin (a beautiful movie/comedy about a family and the German reunification. MUST SEE)
  • Im Winter ein Jahr (a family dealing with the loss of their son/brother)
  • Kabale und Liebe (a superb adaptation of Schiller’s play. bsjdhkdjk)
  • Kebab Connection (…I don’t even know how to describe this movie. Just watch it. Very multi/transcultural and hilarious)
  • Keinohrhasen (a douche has to do community service at a kindergarten - and finds that the girl he used to bully as a kid is now his superior. uh-oh. It’s super funny)
  • Kirschblüten - Hanami  (a dude travelling to Japan to understand and be close to his late wife) 
  • Lola rennt ( a movie about a couple in a dangerous situation - and three possible outcomes)
  • Schiller (ah boy, this was a TV production, so I couldn’t find a link. A brilliant movie about the life of Germany’s best playwright, if you ask me)
  • Soul Kitchen (a comedy about a guy trying to keep his restaurant afloat and keeping his brother out of a life of petty crime)
  • Sophie Scholl - die letzten Tage (a movie about the last days in the life of Sophie Scholl and her brother, who were part of the resistance against the Nazis)

  • Was nützt die Liebe in Gedanken? ( a movie based on a real story, about a group of teenagers vowing to commit suicide once they do not feel any love anymore)
  • Wer früher stirbt ist länger tot (a comedy about a kid who does a lot of nonsense and when told that he is the reason his mother dies, blames himself, feares that he has to go to hell, and tries to make up for his sins by finding his dad a new wife. Hilarious. Again, tho, super strong Bavarian accent, beware!)

And if you want to watch a few good German TV-shows:

  • Türkisch für Anfänger (ABSOLUTE MUST SEE TV SERIES OMG WATCH IT!!! It deals with a German-Turkish patchwork family and it is hilarious)
  • Tatort Münster (basically a procedural crime show. There are a lot of Tatorts, but this is the only one that is always good. you’ll find a lot of the episodes on youtube)
  • Der letzte Zeuge (a show about a coroner solving crimes)
Of Suits and Bunny Slippers

summary: whether in a fancy black dress or fluffy cloud pajamas, Lucy would always have a special place in Natsu’s heart

read on ff.net or ao3


Natsu was nervous. The sweat poured from his forehead to his neck as he pulled at his collar, once more glancing at his appearance. He didn’t dress up often, and when he did it was either because he wanted to for the hell of it or there was a funeral happening.

Today was luckily neither of the two.

Rifling through the closet to find his dress shoes, he finally found them underneath heaps of trash. Wiping his forehead once more, Natsu pushed his shoes on. He hated being so stressed out over one measly date.

But this wasn’t just any date. This was a date with the girl of his dreams.

As the doorbell rang, Natsu ran toward the door but waited a few seconds before turning the handle. He didn’t want to seem too eager.

He forced himself to take a breath before opening the door slowly to find one of the biggest shocks of a lifetime. His date, Lucy, was wearing pajamas.

You didn’t feel any different than before.  In fact, you felt a little more like a loser, mainly because you hadn’t all of a sudden become super cool, like you hoped would happen.

Sure, you had your friends, your family, a few college acceptances that were ready to go.  But you weren’t quite…

There were no words – you must just be in a funk.

Hello! Your answers are always well thought out and meaningful, so I was hoping to get your insight. I saw the new Power Rangers movie and I really loved it! There is a very important autistic character and I adore him but since I'm not autistic I'm not sure how great the representation was (also very much not happy with how he was treated partway through at a Big Moment, the directors could have made a much better choice). Have you seen the movie? If so, what are your thoughts?

Hi! I actually went to watch it just for you! (And for my girlfriend, who is a nerd (if you’re reading this you’re a nerd)). Here is what I have to say about the autistic representation in that movie:

There were a few things that bugged me somewhat, namely that the character played a bit into the “autistic genius” trope (even though I’ve seen much, much worse elsewhere) and that some of his traits, mainly his difficulty with social rules and “awkwardness”, were sometimes played for laughs.

His character wasn’t really fleshed out, but then neither were any of the others, it is, after all, an action movie. And that’s what I liked about it: we get to see a canon autistic person, represented pretty much accurately, whose autism is stated on-screen, be a friggin Power Ranger and fight bad guys and be an action movie hero. And that sends a message miles away from the usual “autism is such a tragedy boohoo”. No one’s gonna pity a Power Ranger. 

This paragraph will get a bit spoilery, so if you want to see the film you might want to skip it. Billy is as capable as all of the others rangers, he needs to be rescued sometimes but so does everyone else, and he’s even the first one to morph. He’s shown as a very empathetic person, which was a nice change from usual representation. He does have a “die to further the plot and create *drama*” moment, but then he’s resurrected so that’s ok.

All in all he’s sort of this “funny sidekick” character, which doesn’t sound ideal but actually it’s better than what we usually get so I’m pretty happy with it. He’s not the most fleshed out and well-rounded character with a detailed backstory, but that’s normal since it’s not that kind of movie. And we also need funny autistic superhero characters, and to my knowledge it’s the first one we’re getting. So all in all, I’d say it’s a great character and a good example of the kind of representation we need. I also like to point out the fact that he’s black, which is very nice since poc autistic people tend to be hugely under-diagnosed because of their race, and showing more explicitely autistic pocs in media is a way to counteract this.

Overall, I’m sure more than a few autistic children will stumble upon this movie and know that one of their heroes is like them and that they can be heroes too and this simple fact is making me very happy so…yeah. This is good representation and I encourage people to watch this movie.

Simmering To a Boil

Saw a post about Allura pinning Keith to a wall…and this happened…

It’s a little spicy…but hardly NSFW.

______________________________________________________________________

Keith had wanted to be alone so he’d found the quietest corridor in the furthest part of the most disused part of the ship. He was staring out the large viewport, or rather, he was staring at his face reflected in it.

He still found it hard to look at. Still found it hard to believe that it was his face. But, given the hideous transformations he’d gone through in his nightmares it could have been a lot worse. He still looked mostly human.

Mostly…

With a now clawed finger he traced one of the deep purple lines that started at the inner corner of his eye, followed the side of his nose before curving out over his cheek to meet the corner of his mouth. The overall look was highly reminiscent of the tear-tracks of a cheetah. The lilac spots of colour dotted about his face only added to the similarity to Earth’s fastest feline.

His ears now had a sharp point to them, more elfin than galran, though the lynx-like tufts at the tips were definitely more giant, purple murder cat than graceful immortal warrior. The teeth, which he absently prodded at with the tip of his tongue, had also become quite sharp, and were taking some getting used to. They hadn’t really changed the sound of his voice, though there was a distinct growling quality to it now whenever he was angry or upset, which, truth be told, was most of the time. But he’d lost count of how many times he’d punctured his lip with the damn things!

His eyes had remained mostly unchanged. The sclera had a slight yellowish tint to them, but otherwise they appeared the same greyish-violet they always had. They were more sensitive to light, however, which made for enhanced night vision, not a bad adaptation for the inky blackness of space, actually.

In fact, all his senses had been heightened. Sight, hearing, smell, taste, even touch. He could identify his friends by scent alone now, by the way their feet touched the ground. They didn’t seem to care about the change.

‘I have to admit, you look pretty badass.’ Lance had grinned, though Keith wasn’t sure he wasn’t quoting from one of his many favourite movies. He was sure he’d heard a line like that somewhere. Concerning some guy who had inadvertently turned himself into some kind of hairy monster.

His ears pricked up as he heard footsteps approaching. He sniffed the air though it only confirmed what he’d already gleaned from the footfalls.

Allura.

She’d been avoiding him ever since…he’d started looking like this. It had hurt him more than he cared to admit. He thought she’d gotten over it, they had been becoming so close. REALLY close. He’d begun to feel in a way that he’d never felt before, in a way that his limited experience with females, or with others in general, failed to explain.

He turned to look at her as she rounded the corner and came into view. She studied him for a moment, her expression unreadable. Then she moved faster than he’d have thought possible. She grabbed him by the front of his shirt and slammed him against the opposite wall of the corridor with such force it made his head spin. Or maybe that was from the way it had impacted with the wall. His feet scrambled for some kind of purchase but she was holding him at least half a meter off the ground. She held one of his arms above his head, the other she pressed against his chest, holding him firmly in place. He’d seen her do something similar to Ulaz.

'So this is how it’s gonna be.’ It took all his presence of mind not to bear his teeth at her.

She leaned in close, dangerously close. He could feel her breath, so warm on his face, as she angled herself to whisper. “Do you have any idea what these ears are doing to me?”

Her voice had been throaty…sultry…even…seductive…?

“Princess?” He question. He had to be imagining it.

His eyes widened and his body tensed as soft lips pressed against the mentioned facial feature. She continued to lay a trail of featherlight kissed from tip to lobe. His head lolled to the side as his body relaxed granting her better access to his jaw and neck which she happily took advantage of.

A deep, reverberating rumbling began to vibrate through his chest. Was he purring? And she’d thought the ears had been the most appealing aspect of his change. She giggled but it didn’t stop her tender machination to his neck.

Keith threw his head back against the wall, partly in response to what Allura was doing to his neck, his jaw, his clavicle, any place she could reach from where she had him pinned to the wall really. Oh, back to the ear now. That was nice. He let out a low groan and felt his eyes roll back of their own accord, the reaction only seemed to encourage Allura to double her efforts.

He threw his head back again. He had done that in an attempt to clear the warm fuzzies that were settling there. But he liked the warm fuzzies. They were so very warm. And so fuzzily fuzzy. He flexed the hand that she held trapped above both their heads. Damn she was strong. But he was no lightweight himself. Especially now. He might not be able to touch the ground, but that didn’t mean he couldn’t brace himself.

He planted a foot against the wall behind him and kicked off.

The motion threw Allura across the corridor to impact the wall beside the large viewport. Her face fell, she must be thinking his actions were a rejection. But only for the millisecond it took him to pounce. He wasn’t rejecting her, he was just turning the tables.

She gasped, out of surprise rather than fear, as sharp teeth dragged across her throat. She knew those teeth could easily rend her flesh if he so chose, but she wasn’t afraid. This was Keith. Sweet, naive, innocent…well…maybe not so innocent considering the way his hands were beginning to roam.

She tilted her head back as his mouth worked its way slowly up the column of her neck. She threaded her fingers through his hair as he moved along her jawline to her own pointed ear. She let out a deep, contented sigh. It seemed her ears were as sensitive as his were. Maybe more so. It was his turn to chuckle.

She tightened her fingers in his hair, pulling him, a little reluctantly, from where he had been nuzzling her neck. She had a sudden compulsion to see his face. She reached out to cup it, stroking the tear-tracks gently with her thumbs. Pidge had told her that his markings resembled one of their homeworld’s big cats, one known for its speed, which seemed so appropriate. And his ears were a proper shape now. But it was still his eyes that truly held her gaze. She was so glad that the change had barely touched them. In the dim light afforded from the stars outside it was impossible to even notice the slight yellowing in them at all. They were the same beautiful shade of violet they’d always been.

Right now they were blinking slowly, looking at her while she was looking at him. On some mutual unspoken agreement they leaned towards each other. There was no teasing this time. No nuzzling, no toying with overly sensitive ears.

Their lips met tentatively at first, neither of them had any experience at this kind of thing. But months of unspoken attraction, of burgeoning feelings they had refused to act upon due to their shared overdeveloped sense of duty, quickly erupted into a passion neither one knew they were capable of, which, given their similar fiery personalities, was really saying something.

Allura wrapped her arms around his neck in an attempt to pull him even closer than he already was. He obliged as best he could, his arms coiling about her waist. She was beginning to feel light-headed, probably due to lack of oxygen, but she didn’t want to break away, even to breathe.

Then suddenly he was gone. She was sent actually spinning, coming to a stop in front of the view screen. Keith was standing a few steps away, breathing heavily, staring out at the stars. She was about to demand to know what the quiznak he was playing at when she heard Lance’s voice.

“And then I said-”

“We know what you said, Lance.” Hunk’s voice answered patiently. “We were there.”

“And you’ve told this story at least half a dozen times now.” Pidge snorted.

“But it gets better every time I tell it.”

She glanced at him. His eyes had flicked to her for a moment before returning to the stars. He’d heard them coming. He had only broken the kiss to save them being caught in a compromising position. He glanced quickly at her again, running a hand through his hair when he did so. She reached up to touch her own hair finding it was a little tussled. She quickly smoothed it out. She noticed his was quite unruly as well, but it always was. She doubted they would notice anything amiss.

“Princess.” Lance greeted happily. “Fearless, Fuzzy Leader.” He teased when he noticed Keith.

“I am NOT fuzzy!” He snapped.

Allura tried not to smile. She knew now from close, personal, physical contact that he actually kind of was. But she couldn’t argue the point without exposing them so she kept quiet.

“Where are you headed?” She asked instead.

“Training room.” Hunk told her. “Thought we’d get in a little target practice.”

“A workout sounds good.” Keith agreed.

“I think I’ll join you too.” Allura nodded. They had to do something to release the…energies…they’d just built up.

“Well go suit up.” Lance said. “We’ll meet you down there.”

As the two boys walked off Pidge lingered, waiting until they were well out of earshot. She turned and studied the pair for a moment, pushing her glasses up her nose.

“You know, Princess…” She began in a matter-of-factly tone. “You might want to consider a different shade of lipstick.” She licked her thumb and ran the damp digit along her reluctant leader’s jaw, like a mother cleaning up her dirty offspring. “This one really doesn’t look good on Keith.”

With a grin she turned to follow the boys, leaving the flabbergasted possible couple behind.

Why you SHOULDN’T boycott Beauty and the Beast

Before you read this, let me just put a disclaimer that this is just one queer boy’s opinion. I was really against the movie at first, mostly because of the Lefou nonsense, but I got to see an early screening at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood and I want to lay some fears to rest. I’m going to try and keep this as spoiler free as possible, but read at your own discretion!

charlie conspiracy theory

ok so i’m gonna try and cover everything, but my fiance originally came up with this theory while we were watching flowers for charlie, and we’ve since elaborated on it. it can be supported by a lot of canon despite the fact that there’s pretty much no way it actually is canon/true (although to be fair, parts of it are at canon, and i’ll even cite stuff, so idk).

so the theory goes: charlie is far more aware of himself and how he acts than other people give him credit for, and charlie is much more meta than he lets on, which isn’t that uncommon of a headcanon, but we kinda took it further.

so we know that charlie genuinely really loves to play characters (frank’s pretty woman, the gang reignites the rivalry, bums: making a mess all over the city, the gang solves the gas crisis, the gang makes lethal weapon 6, etc., etc.), but it’s sorta played in the show like he’s not that great at it. but we also know that charlie is better at manipulating others than he lets on (mac bangs dennis’ mom, charlie and dee find love, charlie has cancer). i’d also say that of the members of the gang, excluding frank, charlie is the most comfortable in his identity, and can be pretty self-aware in a way that the rest of the gang aren’t (charlie work). 

so, flowers for charlie: charlie taking a placebo pill that he thinks will make him smarter, but really doesn’t, blah, blah, blah, you know the plot. 

but if we look at it knowing that (a) charlie is more manipulative than he lets on and (b) charlie loves to play characters (and even has an interest in theater: the nightman cometh), then we can read not as charlie being tricked, but charlie knowing that he’s not actually “smarter” but if he just pretends like he thinks he is, then he gets a whole audience (scientists, his friends, anyone who comes to the talk in the last scene) to watch him play the genius (”is he doing an accent?”), and probably has a great time doing it. 

so ok, if we look at lethal weapon 6 next, then, he plays the weird danish twin’s twin, and the captain (i don’t remember if he plays anyone else tbh). anyway so we could look at this and say it disproves the theory because he does such a bad job as the captain, but honestly watching it, the discrepancy between him as the captain and him as the danish twin is pretty extreme, and here’s why imo: first, he doesn’t like being told what to do (the gang gets analyzed), so even though he wants to be in the movie, the captain probably isn’t the character he’d most enjoy playing (no accent, no action), second, the danish twin has no lines. 

learning his lines for playing the captain must have been hard, because someone would have had to read them to him and teach him and that would be annoying for charlie most likely, especially because of his auditory processing issues (the gang recycles their trash), so he’s not having fun playing the captain. on the other hand, he (presumably, unless mac and dennis had a really clear vision of what the danish twins act like) came up with mannerisms and a whole personality for the danish twin despite not having any actual lines. 

i already mentioned charlie and dee find love, but i always saw that ep as very intentionally showing that charlie isn’t the “good one” of the group, and he can be just as downright cruel as everyone else. not only that, but he’s acting the whole episode, and convinces everyone that he really likes ruby. if he’s capable of something that requires so much subtly and dedication (even… apparently having sex with her despite being sex repulsed), it’s not that much of a stretch to say that he could be duping anyone/everyone at any time. 

anyway uh i probably forgot stuff and there’s almost certainly gonna be holes in this theory but like i said it’s a fun way to read charlie’s character, and it makes watching charlie really fun bc you get to question how much he’s acting at any given moment. obviously he’s not Totally self aware, there are definitely things, like his infatuation with the waitress, that he’s not exactly self aware about the fact that it’s a hopeless cause, but i also kinda think that he lacks self awareness/avoids facing reality very intentionally at least some of the time (a very sunny christmas, he decides not to believe what mac’s telling him/what he remembers about his mom). but in essence that’s the theory :-) hope that wasn’t too boring to read!

Let it GOOOOO

I’ve been pretty behind on the whole Frozen hype. A few years behind, really. Now I know what all of the 6-10 year-old girls were raving about. The music is ridiculously catchy, the plot twist is really intriguing, and the moral of the story has some good old sisterly love (which I know nothing about because I’m an only child… but that’s beside the point).

Anyways, from listening to my friends talk about the movie and from hearing about it in class, I knew Hans was bad, though everything would work out in the end (as it always does). I mean, at the beginning of the movie, he seemed like the stereotypical “old Disney” prince.

He sweeps Ana off her feet at the ball, promises to love her, etc. But, as most other characters (and I hope other kids) pick up on… this is preeeeeetttty sketchy. Even knowing it was gonna happen, his betrayal made me so angry. That power-hungry son of a Sven. But I LOVED Ana’s clapback at the end- “The only one with a cold heart here is you.” Pretty sure I screamed “YES” at my laptop…

I’m still kind of confused about the old Weaselton guy… Why exactly does he get so much screen time? He isn’t really that integral to the plot except for the fact that he sends men to kill Elsa. He just complains a lot… Maybe it’s for comedic relief, but that’s just not my type of humor. I do love, though, that Zootopia has a few Frozen references… including one about Weaselton.

That being said… I know there’s a whole “Disney-Pixar universe theory” out there- that all of the movies are connected in some way. What really struck me while watching Frozen was that all of the characters seem to be familiar with the concept of true love’s kiss. Now, I don’t exactly know if the concept of true love’s kiss is really a thing outside of the Disney bubble, but I do know it’s especially important in Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and, hey! Maleficent. Are the Frozen characters familiar with these stories? They seem to think true love’s kiss is necessary to break the spell… Hm. Just something to think about.

Side note on the whole space-time conflation thing: I really appreciate the scene where Ana is jumping up around famous artworks. I’ve seen some of the paintings in real life!

Disney version:

Real version:

On a completely different note, did anyone else think Elsa’s ice powers were kinda a metaphor for depression at the beginning? I mean, it kinda falls apart with the whole “brb building an ice castle now I can be myself” thing… But in the beginning, she doesn’t tell people what’s going on because she doesn’t want to hurt anyone. Her parents tell her to conceal everything, that it’s not ok to openly show her powers (in keeping with the modern stigma around mental illness). And her powers literally involve ice… I imagine some people with depression might consider it a lack of warmth, or a cold state of being. She spends a lot of time in isolation, not participating in fun events with her sister. If a doctor had to diagnose her with a condition, I almost guarantee it would be depression.

But in the end, she learns to control her powers so she can be with her sister and benefit her kingdom. Ah yes, the happy Disney ending I was promised.

What If (Canada, 2013)

Predictions: Alex has seen this movie. Kat…knew it starred Daniel Radcliffe? Thus, she predicted that it was about him wandering about town, wondering, “What if I were a wizard?” Stay tuned for as many Harry Potter jokes as we can possibly squash into this entry.

Plot: Daniel Radcliffe is a sad sack who has not yet gotten over his breakup of over a year ago. He drags himself to a party at his friend Adam Driver’s house, where he meets Adam Driver’s cousin, Zoe Kazan. They have a lot in common, and he immediately likes her, but upon walking her home he learns that she has a boyfriend. Since he is a decent person, they become friends instead.

Time passes. They continue to be friends. Zoe Kazan continues to have a boyfriend.

More time passes. Zoe Kazan’s boyfriend, hotshot copyright lawyer, moves to Dublin for what is supposed to be six months. Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan hang out even more, growing ever closer. Adam Driver marries a girl he met at that same party. Daniel Radcliffe realizes that he needs to express his feelings, but (blah blah blah) this winds up going terribly, and he and Zoe Kazan stop talking, even though she has broken up with her boyfriend anyway. Zoe Kazan takes a promotion in Taiwan, and Daniel Radcliffe decides to go back to medical school. Adam Driver and his wife host Zoe Kazan’s going-away party, and, at the last minute, Daniel Radcliffe decides to attend. They make up (and out! We will never tire of this incredibly lame barely-a-joke; hope you are looking forward to seeing it approximately 50 more times on this blog).

More time passes. It turns out they got married. How nice.

Best Scene: We really liked this movie, and it’s almost entirely adorable stuff between Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan, so it’s tough to pick. One of our favorite parts, though, is when they first start becoming friends and are emailing each other. Just one of many lovely and organic parts to this film.

Worst Scene: Maybe the sequence where we’re shown the construction of a “Fool’s Gold” sandwich? A butter-covered loaf of bread, filled with peanut butter, jam, and 1 lb. crispy bacon. The internet says that it’s “surprisingly good,” but we find that difficult to believe. However, the internet also says that it’s 8000 calories, which we do not find difficult to believe.

Best Line: “I have a dead-end job, I live in my sister’s attic, and I never go out. …Uh, correcting pronunciation is my old thing, actually. My new thing is oversharing.” – Daniel Radcliffe, making a winning first impression upon Zoe Kazan. There are actually a lot of funny and/or touching lines in this movie, though. This just happened to be one that we remembered. Props to this movie! There was only one line in it we hated (see below).

Worst Line: Sigh. In the middle of this movie, there is your standard one-trick joke about Adam Driver accidentally sleeping with a trans woman. HERE’S THE THING ABOUT THIS JOKE: besides its being, you know, transphobic, it is SUCH A LAME, OLD, CONSTANTLY-REUSED GARBAGE PIECE OF JOKE. This shitty joke has appeared in basically every piece of media we’ve seen since middle school. Honestly. Come up with a new offensive joke, if you must.

Highlights of the Watching Experience: Toronto is beautiful, y'all!!!! So is Dublin. All the scenery in this movie, A+. We really covet Zoe Kazan and Daniel Radcliffe’s neighborhood. The walkability score looks excellent. But why are Daniel Radcliffe and his sister (both clearly British) living in Canada? Zero backstory was provided. Are their parents…also in Canada? Their parents seem to originally have been doctors in London… Discuss.

How Many POC in the Film: Basically none. Bad job, movie. The most we got was the knowledge that Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan had each dated one person of color in the past. Really, movie Canada? Even Hogwarts has, like, three or four POC, and that’s in movie BRITAIN.

Alternate Scenes: The scene in which Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan are out in the city of Toronto, and 50% of the background actors are POC. Alternately, a movie about the zombie apocalypse, in which super-pale Daniel Radcliffe turns out to be Patient Zero. It could still be a romcom, though. But they would be forever separated by his zombie-ness. So maybe not a romcom. A romantic zombie drama. A romzom…dram. Who wants to fund this?? Any takers????

Was the Poster Better or Worse than the Film: Worse. What is happening in this poster???? It is like the fridge magnets have come alive in an insect-y swarm between them. No, we don’t want that. We would not watch that movie.

Score: 8 out of 10 Harry-Potter-hangs-out-with-Kylo-Ren smooches. Guys, this is Adam Driver’s least abhorrent role! He is…perhaps a touch too free-spirited, but otherwise, he is mostly okay. He even has some pretty funny lines from time to time. His face is still weird, though.

Ranking: 10, out of the 78 movies we’ve seen so far. Not bad! Worth watching, if you haven’t seen it and are interested in enjoying some beautiful shots of unrealistically-white Toronto. (Seriously, though, what is this city in which even Chinatown doesn’t have any people of color? Is that Chinatown that Zoe Kazan and her boyfriend are strolling through? Kat genuinely thought it was, like…an Asian-themed farmers’ market. Red lanterns. White people. You know.)

Type: Fluff/Slight Angst/Smut in Next Part

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6 Part 7 Part 8 Part 9

You screamed, slamming your hand against your living room wall before tossing your phone onto the couch and falling down onto it, wriggling into the pillows, letting them muffle your groans of frustration.

This week had been going pretty great considering the breakup. Usually your breakups were filled with movies and ice cream and some friends braiding your hair and telling you to get it together but not this time. Well, you still watched movies and ice cream and talked to friends but since your meeting with Jongdae, things hadn’t seemed so bad. Your ex did cheat on you, and even though it hurt, there wasn’t anything you could do about it.

It was all fine and good until about an hour earlier, when the messages started popping up one by one, along with the string of calls that you continuously rejected.

I’m sorry

Please just let me talk to you

Please pick up

I wasn’t thinking okay

You weren’t sure what to think, what to say, what to do…your mind spun as you stared at your phone in shock. He didn’t seriously think that you believed him, right? Did he think you were that stupid?

Things would’ve just easily blown over if he hadn’t started spamming you with all these messages and voicemails that you didn’t even bother to listen to. You moved onto your back, grabbing your phone and turning it off in frustration, not wanting to see your ex do this. You were doing fine. You were doing really well considering it had only been a week and he just had to go and ruin it. You felt your chest tighten as the pain returned, and you cursed loudly, wondering why you had to feel this awful when you didn’t even do anything wrong.

You suddenly heard the doorbell ring and you froze on your couch, your eyes widening as you looked around your messy apartment. It wasn’t exactly messy perse, just a bit unorganized. You hadn’t done the dishes from last night’s dinner yet, and they were still piled in the sink. There was a laundry basket full of clean laundry that you were just too lazy to fold. Everything else looked pretty okay in your opinion, so you stood, running your fingers through your hair as you shuffled to the door.

“Hey neighbor,” chirped Jongdae as he leaned against your doorframe, the corners of his eyes crinkling as he grinned.

Jongdae was probably the best thing that could’ve happened to you after your ex cheated. He wasn’t lying when he said he’d visit you at work, because that past week he’d walked in almost every single day to get coffee and chat with you. You’d see him in the mornings sometimes before he left for work, and he’d give you a cheeky grin, saying something cute like “Bye neighbor!” and giving you a little wave.

You smiled at him as he stood in front of you, rubbing the back of his neck as his eyes travelled down your body. Your eyes shifted down too, and you cursed as you realized that you may have been a bit too underdressed with your oversized t-shirt and slightly too short shorts. You didn’t have work today, so dressing well wasn’t exactly a high priority on your list.

“I promise there are shorts underneath this,” you insisted, and you were rewarded with his musical laughter.

He shook his head, the corners of his mouth still twist upward as he replied, “No, no, I just thought you may be cold is all. Um anyway, I came over here because I wanted to ask if everything was okay.”

You lifted your eyebrows, tilting your head to the side. “I think so? Why?”

“I heard screaming and banging noises so I figured that something was either very, very wrong or you were just having really fantastic sex.”

You snorted, doubling over as you laughed at how casual his words sounded. You felt a hand on your shoulder, and you lifted your head to meed Jongdae’s worried eyes as you continued to shake with laughter. Seeing your face, his expression changed, his worried look changing into a smile.

“Sorry…I…no, no sex…” you confirmed in between little bursts of giggles, wondering why you were still laughing, knowing you probably must’ve looked pretty stupid at this point.

He grinned, his hand squeezing your shoulder lightly as you shivered, feeling him lean a bit closer to you. “Was it really that funny?” he asked, his brows lifting and his tongue peeking out to lick his lips quickly. You shrugged awkwardly, feeling your cheeks heat up as he watched you. “Wait no,” he began, his thumb rubbing your shoulder where he was still holding you. “Don’t feel shy, I didn’t mean it like that. I’ve just never seen you laugh like that before, it was nice, I’m sorry.”

Now you felt really embarrassed, and you looked down at your feet, nodding as you felt him release his grip on your shoulder. He cleared his throat before he continued, “Um well anyway, what was that sound from earlier? Are you sure everything is alright?”

You smile faltered and you heart sank as you remembered the building messages from your ex. Jongdae noticed the change, bending down slightly to get a better look at your face.

“Um…” you began, feeling him near you slightly. “Well my ex started texting me and calling me…like a lot…and I’m just a little frustrated.” You looked up to see his eyes widen, flickering between anger and disgust.

“What did you say?” he asked, his pitch slightly lower than before. “I mean, how did you respond?”

“I didn’t.”

His lips formed an ‘o’ shape as he slowly let out a breath, his Adam’s apple bobbing as he swallowed. “May I…see?” he asked carefully, realizing that you hadn’t known each other long and not wanting to overstep his boundaries.

You nodded, stepping away from the door and gesturing for him to enter before closing it, heading back to your couch where your phone was. You plopped down, turning it on again as he sat next to you, leaning in to look at your phone.

“What kind of a password is that?” he muttered sassily as you unlocked your phone and you turned, glaring at him before smacking his chest lightly. He held his hands up in surrender, laughing as he apologized, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I won’t look at anything…”

“Don’t make fun of my password…” you grumbled, making him laugh again as you looked back at you phone, gasping as you say how many messages had built up over the few minutes you’d tuned off your phone. Jongdae, noticed as well, grabbing the phone out of your hand and beginning to scroll through the fifty or so unread messages.

Jongdae clicked his tongue, his brows furrowing as he looked back at you. “Yah, this guy’s crazy. Twenty missed calls? What the fuck-” he was cut off by your ringtone as you ex called again, and before you could protest, Jongdae answered, putting the phone to his ear before you could grab it.

“Hello?” you heard the muffled voice of your ex on the other side, and you tried to grab the phone from Jongdae but he grabbed your wrists with his free hand pinning them together as he held the phone to his ear.

“Yah,” began Jongdae loudly, making you jump slightly. “Why do you keep calling her, huh? No- No, you shut up, why does it matter who the fuck I am? Your messages are so creepy dude, like fucking chill okay. She doesn’t want to-” Jongdae groaned loudly, turning to look at you, his hand tightening slightly at your wrists. “I’m sorry that you had to deal with this excuse of a human being, you did not deserve this man as your boyfriend,” he said to you apologetically before turning back to the call.

“Jongdae, I-” you were cut off by him yelling at your ex again.

“Oh, so you think that you’re better than me? You don’t even know me dude, why are you even-” he scoffed, clicking his tongue again. “Yah, you can’t seriously think she actually wants you back, right? Like please at least tell me you’re not that stupid…Oh my god, you’re a fucking idiot, aren’t you? My IQ is dropping just because I’m talking to you. You know what- no, no you listen to me, okay stop calling her, because I swear if I even see one tiny little message you will fucking regret it…God, do you kiss your mother with that mouth, what the fuck is wrong with you? Ugh,” he scoffed, pulling the phone off his ear and ending the call.

You stared wide-eyed at your neighbor as his thumb tapped away at your phone, his other hand still on your wrists. You tugged slightly and he looked over, his mouth opening as he released you quickly, apologizing.

“It’s…um it’s fine,” you mumbled, rubbing at your wrists. He stared at the slightly red marks he’d left, dropping your phone to gently grab your hands.

His tongue peeked out to lick his lips, and he whimpered softly. “Was I really holding you that tight? I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt you. Do you need ice or something?” You watched in disbelief as he rubbed the red spots soothingly, his brows crinkling.

“You,” you began, making him look back up at you with his brows crinkled. “What…wait why are you…what the hell just happened?” you muttered, blinking several times as you replayed the past few minutes in your head.

His laughter filled your living room as he released your wrists, grabbing your phone and tapping away at it again. “I hope you didn’t mind,” he chuckled, watching your expression. “Oh, also I’m blocking his number on your phone. You know how to do that right? If he ever bothers you with another number just block him again.”

You nodded, your eyes flickering to his face. His hair was ruffled and messy, and you figured he didn’t have work today because he was still home. His t-shirt and sweatpants made that even more obvious, but before you could keep studying your neighbor, his eyes caught you staring.

He laughed, “Do you think I’m being weird? Sorry, I just don’t like people who cheat. Well, honestly I don’t get the point. If you don’t want me, then tell me you don’t want me. Don’t just start seeing someone else behind my back.”

His words turned bitter quickly, and you bit your lips as you softly asked him, “You’ve been cheated on too?”

He looked at you again, the corners of his mouth twisting upward as he shrugged. “Maybe,” he teased, handing you your phone. You took it, sticking your tongue out at him and making him laugh again, his arms stretching to rest behind his head.

“Thank you,” you added, bowing your head slightly towards your neighbor. You felt his hand touch your head, and he ruffled your hair, chuckling slightly.

“Anytime, neighbor,” he mused before standing, stretching again. Your eyes met the strip of exposed skin at his waist as his shirt rode up when he stretched and you swallowed, knowing it was way, way too early to be having any of these thoughts. He turned back towards you, crossing his arms and letting his shirt fall as he looked around the apartment. “So, should I help you clean?”

“What?” You looked around, your eyes landing on the dishes and the laundry. Everything else seemed fine, and you looked back at Jongdae with your brows raised in question. “Um…is this really messy?”

His eyes widened and he shook his head, his hand shaking with it. “No, no I mean…I didn’t mean it like that. Sorry, my old roommate was kind of a neat freak, and he kind of rubbed off on me I guess.” He rubbed the back of his neck awkwardly, his eyes landing on the dishes piled in the sink. “Want help with the dishes? I can help you, really-”

“No, no,” you interrupted, standing and walking towards the kitchen. “I can do them myself, it’s alright, you don’t have to-”

“But I want to,” he whined, his bottom lip puffing out. “Ok, what about this. You scrub, I rinse. You’ll basically be the one doing the dishes, I’ll just rinse them and put them on the rack. Please, please, please I want to be helpful.” He stomped his feet like a child, pouting as you watched.

You rolled your eyes, giving into him as you stood in front of the sink, scrubbing and then handing him the soapy dishes for him to rinse off. He smiled, humming an unrecognizable tune as he ‘helped’ you with the dishes.

“Oh, fuck,” he muttered under his breath as one of your plates slipped out of his had and clanged into the sink. It wasn’t broken but he still gave you a sheepish look, apologizing before picking it up and setting it on the rack.

You scoffed, squeezing more soap onto your sponge as you teased, “Do you kiss your mother with that mouth?”

He burst into laughter, realizing what you were referring to. “Yah,” he chuckled. “I don’t say stuff like that in front of my mom, okay? Come on, do I really seem like that kind of person?”

“I wouldn’t know,” you shrugged, handing him a soapy cup. “I mean, I barely know you, and here you are in my apartment, doing dishes.” The strange reality of the moment hit you, and you were greeted with a wave of uneasiness. He seemed to notice as he set the cup on the rack before turning to you.

“Hey,” he murmured, and you turned up to the sound of his voice. “If you ever feel uncomfortable, feel free to kick me out. Sorry, I just…I mean I didn’t notice that this might be weird for you. You’re right, you barely know me, I should-”

“No, it’s fine!” you reassured, waving your soapy hands at him. “You’ve helped me a lot, and you live next to me. I mean, I’ll get to know you. I’m not uncomfortable.”

He smiled, “But seriously, I’m really glad you’re my neighbor. I was hoping I’d live next to someone I could talk to, you know? I’m really talkative sometimes so it’s nice living around others who are willing to talk to me.”

You hummed in agreement, handing him the last soapy bowl. “So, what would you like to talk about?” you asked, and he chuckled, rinsing off the bowl and setting it on the tray as you dried off your hands.

“Well,” he began, tilting his head in thought. “You seem to be in a good mood. Are you feeling better now?”

You nodded, handing him the towel for him to dry his hands. “Yeah, thank you. You know it’s funny, doing dishes actually helps me cope with things a lot. Or just chores in general, because I get so occupied that I forget that I was upset. It helps me clear my head…is that weird?”

“Not really,” Jongdae shook his head. “I mean, everyone has their little ways of getting over things. Like my old roommate? He’d always clean. The place would be extra spotless whenever he was upset about something.”

“Ahh, I see,” you nodded, shifting your weight as you felt the atmosphere turn awkward. “So what do you do when you’re upset?”

His eyebrows lifted and he licked his lips, his eyes teasing as he replied, “I’m not sure you want to know.”

“Come on, it can’t be that bad.”

His eyes darted around, not meeting yours has he rubbed the back of his neck. “I mean…it’s not bad…I just think you’d feel uncomfortable.”

“Just tell me, now I wanna know,” you whined. “What’s your secret? How do you get over breakups?” You raised your brows suggestively, and he wrinkled his nose leaning down slightly towards you. He turned his head to the side, flashing a grin and making your stomach flip as he answered.

“Sex.”

Happy Halloween: Movie Marathon.

Imagine spending your Halloween with the turtles. The boys are hosting a “Very Scary Movie Night” and invited all of you. You pack an overnight bag, bring some Halloween treats, and settle for a night…OF TERROR (thunder booming and sinister music playing)!!

Imagine Leonardo hates scary movies (not for the monsters and murders but for the terrible choices) but he joins in.
For one thing, it’s Halloween, but mostly it’s because you’ll be there. You come in, wearing your pajamas (orange and black striped leggings and a big black sweater) and totting some candy apples.
“Hey, guys. Happy Halloween.”
Welcome, mortal! And beware! You’re in for a scare!“ Mikey says in his ‘scary voice.’
Normally, Leo might make a comment or tell him to time it down, but tonight he’s more preoccupied with getting a seat next to you. Which he does.
Throughout the night, he inches just a little bit closer (not that you mind) and you make a habit of holding onto him when you’re scared (not that he minds).
By the third movie, you are asleep (he doesn’t know how you can sleep through the screams) and Leo never wants Halloween to end.

Imagine Raph being pumped.
He loves scary movies (monster movies and Stephen King films are his favorites) and helps Mikey get everything together. And when he finds out you’re coming…well…
You waltz into the lair, wearing a black shirt with a bloody vampire smile and red leggings.
"Hey, Raph. I brought mini chocolates.”
Mikey popped in out of thin air and snatched the bag.
“Thank you, Lady Dracula.” he said, taking off.
“What…”
“Hope you got some at some cause you ain’t seeing those again.” Raph said with grin.
“Man, Mikey must love Halloween.”
“It’s like crack to him. Don’t even get him started on Christmas.”
You laughed and sat down next to him. He, very smoothly, put his arm around you and silently cheered when you didn’t shrug him off (he was sure that you would). Secretly, the two of you whisper jokes and snide comments to each other and stifle your laughter all night long.

Imagine Donnie hates scary movies and so do you. You both hate blood and monsters and Donnie sees enough scary things every damn day. Honestly, you’d rather watch Hotel Transylvania or a Scooby Doo movie.
But Donnie knows that you’re going and you know that Donnie’s going and no one wants to look like a baby, so you both decided to suffer through it.
You make orange and black cupcakes and slip into your comfy clothes (a Ghostbusters shirt and bright green leggings) and head down to the lair, determined to stay strong.
And for a while you do.
But into the second movie, you quietly get up and head to the kitchen. You hid out there for a bit, eating cupcakes until Donnie comes in.
“What are you doing all by yourself?”
“I’m, uh, not a fan of horror movies. But I didn’t want to miss out hanging out with you so I came anyway.” You admit.
Donnie smiled and said
“That’s what I was going to say. I mean, it’s bad enough my brothers tease me for it…”
“Mine do too! They’re all monster movie buffs. So what if I like Hocus Pocus better then It?”
“I love that movie. Did you watch…”
You spend the rest of the night talking and laughing and eating all the backup snacks. In the end, Halloween turned out to be pretty great.

You love, love, love Halloween.
The costumes, the candy, all the Halloween episodes of your favorite shows. But most of all, you love to be scared. You love the twists and terror of horror movies, even though you know you’re gonna have nightmares for a week.
So when Mikey invited you to the movie night, you agreed instantly.
Slipping into your brand new black cat onesie and making a batch of your special spooktacular (as Mikey would say) graveyard brownies, you were the first one down to the lair.
“Y/N, you came! And you brought brownies!”
“Wouldn’t miss it for the world, Mikey Man.”
The couch was packed once everyone arrived, so you and Mikey both sat on the giant arm chair. Well, really he sat on it and you sat on his lap but he certainly wasn’t complaining.
You snuggled with him all night, sharing sweet treats and the both of you screaming every five seconds.
It was perfect. His dream Halloween. Eventually, you fell asleep, snoring quietly, and Mikey pulled a blanket over the two of you, falling to sleep himself.
The others smirked and took pictures, knowing Mikey would want a couple to remember this night.

As much as we can see in the trailer, he plays a soldier that accompanies Harley Quinn when she ventures off to do her thing! (You can see Alex in the background of the scene where Harley Quinn is talking about the voices to the soldiers, and the last scene where Harley Quinn breaks the glass of a shop display to grab a purse! He’s also in one frame of the trailer fist-bumping Scott Eastwood! ((listen 2 me that scene slayed my fucking life i was dead i was like yas alex slay me bitch)) He’s sporting a pretty gnarly beard and moustache, so he might be a little hard to spot. Nothing a quick rewind and pause can’t find, though!) I’m so fucking hyped for this movie y’all don’t even know omg… He was also rumored to play a Jason Todd/Robin or smth,, and his role is pretty ambiguous/no-one gives a shit ab his role so who knows?? Maybe his character sneaks up on ya in the film! 
  • KIOWA GORDON/EMBRY CALL: 
    - the Red Road* (BONUS: Jason Momoa is the main character!)
      This is such a good TV show. It fucks with your mind and Kiowa is pretty bad-ass in this. Here’s a link to an interview about the show where he mentions the Twilight cast and the wolf-pack! :-)) It’s available to watch on Netflix!
      Kiowa plays this kid named Junior who lives on a reservation. This show is AWESOME. It really just reveals what reservation life is, touches on police brutality and power manipulation, racism, etc.. I really recommend you to watch it if you enjoy crime/mystery shows! (2014-2015) 
    - the Lesser Blessed 
      I haven’t personally seen this, but again, a friend watched it and she really enjoyed it! It’s based off a book, I believe. Kiowa really seems to like playing more angsty roles. (2012)
    - Wind Walkers
      This looks like an interesting movie that I haven’t gotten around to watching! I’ve been meaning to. It’s apparently a horror film about Native American monsters. (sorry if I worded that wrong!) (2015)
  • TYSON HOUSEMAN/QUIL ATEARA V:
    - Feed the Devil 
      I wasn’t able to find a stream for this movie, unfortunately. I don’t know much about it, either, so watch the trailer!! (2014)
  • JULIA JONES/LEAH CLEARWATER: 
    - The Ridiculous Six: (BONUS: Taylor Lautner is a main star in this!) 
      This is a comedic movie that stars Adam Sandler and other pretty big names. This was fun to watch! However, the movie has stirred up some controversy over the representation of Native Americans. It’s up to you to watch. It’s available to stream on Netflix. When watching the movie, I think you’ll be able to see why many people argue that it’s controversial– again, up to you to watch. (2015)
    - Longmire: 

      She is a recurring, guest star on this TV show. 
    - She has quite a few upcoming projects to watch out for as well!
  • BOOBOO STEWART/SETH CLEARWATER:
    - Descendants:
      This is a popular original Disney Channel movie that came out last year! Booboo is a main star, and plays the character “Jay”, son of Jafar. Keep in mind that this is a Disney movie, and it probably won’t appeal to older audiences. I personally didn’t like it just because it was very cliche, but that isn’t to say that the film isn’t good! It’s just not my taste. (2015)
    - White Frog:*
      Can I just say: Booboo’s performance in this is INCREDIBLE. He plays a boy with Asperger’s Syndrome, who struggles with his social and personal life after his older brother passes away. There are some awesome stars in this like Gregg Sulkin, and Tyler Posey. This is a wonderful movie to watch with a lovely moral and awesome POC and LGBTQ representation! (2012)
    - X-Men: Days of Future Past: 
      Booboo has a small role in this film as a superhero called “Warpath”.
    - Honestly, this kid has so many movies and projects to his name, so trust me, you’ll be able to keep up with him. (2014)
  • TINSEL KOREY/EMILY YOUNG:
    -  Fishing Naked: 
      see above in Bronson Pelletier’s section! (2015)
  • TANAYA BEATTY/RACHEL BLACK: 
     - Arctic Air:
     
    This is an old Canadian TV series that I believe got cancelled? Anyways, it’s not a bad TV show, and all the full episodes are available on the CBC website, which will be linked HERE. It’s about an airplane hangar facility, and it’s got some interesting drama surrounding it. I think Tanaya is pretty good in this, and is a central character, especially in later seasons! If you ever need screencaps of her, this is the place you want to go. (2012-2014)
    - Words and Pictures: 
      This is an old rom-com movie. Tanaya, based on the trailer, seems to be a central student in the movie– which I haven’t seen! 
    - the Night Shift: (premiering June 1st, 2016) 
      This is a Canadian medical drama TV series! Tanaya will be playing a central doctor in pretty much every episode. I’m super excited because I love medical dramas and it’s coming out really soon!! :’’) 
    - Tanaya has guest-starred on the hit TV show, “the 100″ as Mel, in the episodes “Many Happy Returns” and “Human Trials”. She’s also appeared frequently in the TV shows “Continuum” and “True Justice”. 
    - Tanaya has quite a few projects that will be coming out in the next few years! She will be a main character in a short film called “The Hunt”, which is currently in pre-production starring Matt Daddario (mega heart eye emoji omg), and is also portraying Sacagawea, a national icon and hero Lemhi Shoshone woman who was a vital guide to the Lewis and Clark expedition, in an upcoming TV mini-series currently in post-production. 

**Please keep in mind that most of these movies are low-budget, or indie movies. Don’t expect brilliant, Oscar-worthy pieces of art– and take the projects for what they are. If you don’t like them, don’t leave nasty reviews and discredit all these incredibly hard-working individuals’ efforts and talents. If you’re thinking: “Why do many of these actors mainly have small, indie roles in lower-end productions?”, remember that it’s all a part of a bigger problem surrounding Native American talent and content.  Be reasonable y’all, and respect all the hard work put into the performances, production, and years of effort it took to get these actors and actresses to where they are today. 

**Also keep in mind that these are all based off what I could find on the Internet! Some of this info may be outdated, or wrong, but it’s unlikely it is. HAPPY WATCHING!

***EDIT: for Alex Meraz, if u can handle a sad story, pls watch his episode of “New Worlds”!!! It’s super easy to find on YouTube (literally just search “New Worlds Alex Meraz”) and it should be there in pretty good quality!!! I just reblogged an old ask where I link the episode!!!

Pt.1 of 3


       Curling up inside a dusty wardrobe and struggling to maintain steady breathing despite fear bubbling up with every noise is not how Y/N pictured the day going when she woke up this morning.

       One particularly loud creak just outside the door sends a spike of panic through Y/N’s chest. She tries to make herself even smaller in the pitch black darkness of the wardrobe, but thankfully the footsteps wander close for only a moment before they fade away into another room. Y/N risks a soft sigh of relief, the ridiculousness of the situation almost forcing an incredulous laugh from her as well.

       How did this even happen?

anonymous asked:

The thing is , buckynat doesn't need to happen. Natasha is strong on her own. Why ruin that by giving her a weakness, aka Bucky or Steve? The reason why so many people ship Steve and Bucky or Sam and Steve and Not Natasha and Bucky or Natasha and Steve is because Natasha will no longer be that strong, independent character. She only needs herself; she proved that multiple times. She's very strong and does great on her own - doesn't need a love interest.

Listen I’m gonna be real with you for a second.

Why do y’all do this?

Like seriously. Why do y’all pretend you care for women characters and then go “well you can’t give her a boyfriend, she won’t be as strong!” Clearly, it’s either “she’s just a love interest!!!” or “she’s too strong for a relationship!!!” One misogynist extreme to the other 

Y’all dragged Sharon Carter through the dirt for this past movie claiming she “was just a love interest!!!” like do y’all really think Bucky dropped outta thin air and landed in their laps??? They’d probably still be searching for his ass in 2017 if it wasn’t for her. And she’s the one who constantly risked her fucking job just to help them? She literally put her livelihood on the line and if it wasn’t for her they would literally be back to square one. 

Honestly, the audacity y’all have to sit there and say “she only needs herself” like where were you during Cap: Winter Soldier??? Did y’all miss that whole movie where she literally became a family with Sam and Steve?? Her relationship with Tony in the Avengers movies??? Fury?????? Saying she only needs herself is so ignorant and you’re completely isolating her character. Boiling it down, Bucky would have fucking murdered her if it wasn’t for Steve. So I don’t really think she only needs herself. Just because she needs help from others/finds comfort in others/relies on others doesn’t make her weak.

I’m pretty sure in the comics, Natasha was still a badass in the red room and was literally the best operative ever when Bucky was fucking her at least a good 65% of the time. Seems like she can do both :)

Natasha has weaknesses regardless. Herself is her weakness. Her past, the Avengers, Clint, Steve, Tony, Fury are all her weaknesses. She ain't some stone cold woman who has to act all big and bad just to prove she’s strong. And let it be known that having a relationship doesn’t make her weak. Even though AOU was a whack ass movie with that god awful relationship with Bruce, I don’t think that made her weak, did you????? I dunno, you might just be saying she’d be weak with Steve or Bucky because your ship is threatened. What if she was with Sam??? Would that make her weak???????? Y'all don’t care for her. Y'all only view her as a threat to your ship.

I gotta ask, why would Natasha be considered weak with a relationship, but it’s okay for Bucky to have one? As far as we know, he never really had (as far as the Winter Soldier is concerned, which is all he remembers anyway) relationships until he came into contact with the Avengers/Steve, just like Natasha in the MCU, he was taken out of everyday society and basically mentally rebuilt, just like Natasha, and now has trouble relating/talking to/being open with others, just like Natasha. They’re really not that different at all. So why is it when someone wants Natasha with Steve she’s weak, but you turn around and put Bucky on some sort of pedestal for head-canoning him with Steve, acting like it’ll suddenly cure him of all his imperfections and their relationship would be the best thing to happen since sliced bread?

Just curious. I’ll wait. 

Every Enjolras.  Ever.

What is the problem here?  Victor Hugo was extremely thorough in his physical description of Enjolras.  So why is it apparently so damned difficult to cast this part for movie adaptations, and why do other visual media find it impossible to draw him according to his description?  What the hell am I missing here?  Is there some widespread conspiracy to portray all revolutionaries as dark-haired and/or ugly dudes?

I needed a laugh the other day, so I started compiling a visual collection of every Enjolras I could find.

In chronological order:

^^^1912 French silent movie.  I’m sure he’s in there somewhere.  Just, please God, don’t let him be the one in plaid pants.  (Oh Jesus, I just looked up at the photo again after writing that sentence, and realized THEY ALL HAVE PLAID PANTS ON………=___=;;)

          EDIT:  I have subsequently seen this version, and in fact he is the guy in the plaid pants.  Sigh.  At least he’s the hot one in the plaid pants…


^^^1925 French silent movie.  Whoa there, Marlene Dietrich, ease off that makeup a little!  Enjolras went a little eye shadow crazy, and Lord knows he needs all that ghostly foundation to distract from the fact that he’s about twenty years too old for this role, but strangely enough, still not the worst Enjolras ever.  At least he gets a Le Cabuc scene…


^^^1934 French movie.  Wild hair Enjolras.  It looks respectable here, but it gets progressively crazier and crazier as the barricades go on.  Speaking of crazy, this Enjolras tends to have a bit of the wild eye too–but, you know, he also thinks blowing up his own barricade is actually a good battle strategy, so…  (Also, he smokes like a chimney–is that even canon?  I don’t think it is…)


^^^1937 Soviet movie, Gavrosh (Гаврош).  Not much I can say about this crazy Soviet propaganda film that hasn’t been said already.  This is one of the strangest roles for an Enjolras ever in a Les Mis adaptation, but that seems suitable for one of the strangest Les Mis adaptations ever.  His hobbies (besides barricading) involve graffiti art and hanging with escaped convicts, and his end comes when he is shot dead by Javert at the barricade.  Sadly, he doesn’t live long enough to see his barricade go on to succeed, and the revolution is won without him.  Oh well!  At least he gets to die in Gavroche’s loving arms, though.  ……Wait, what fanfic was I reading again…?


^^^1943 American comic book.  He doesn’t have much of a role to play here.  And I have to say, this is one of the few times I have had too many candidates for the title of Enjolras.  I’m pretty sure this is him, though there’s a guy with a skeezy goatee who also seems to think he’s Enjolras…I’ll just pretend I didn’t see him…


^^^1948 Italian movie, I Miserabili.  He exists, and he seems to be the leader at the barricade, but he’s also extremely hard to screencap, because the little jerk moves with the speed of lightning.  So this is what you get, a blurry Enjolras getting dragged out to die by blurry soldiers.  A GIF might be more appropriate here.  As far as his Enjolras abilities, I have only one thing to say: rolling barrels down the street is not a good barricade defense strategy, Enjolras.


^^^1952 American movie.  There isn’t an official Enjolras in this one, but this guy sure acts like him, so let’s call him Enjolras.  Because this Marius sure as shit doesn’t deserve to be the badass barricade leader here.


^^^1957 French movie.  Meh, he’s okay, but too old, too weird-looking, too not-blond.  Looks kinda like David Rossi from Criminal Minds, but not as cool.  And his personality didn’t leave too much of an impression either, to be honest.  But one has to laugh at the awkwardness of the Friends’ introductory scene in this version, which is about as literal (and ineffective) an interpretation of their character descriptions in the book as one could imagine…


^^^1964 Italian movie (miniseries?), I Miserabili.  This guy’s a beast, he’s a fucking god.  A straight-up amazing Enjolras, even though, like most Enjolrati on this list, he’s definitely too old for the part.  He does have an unfair advantage over most other Enjolrati, though–he got to do a Le Cabuc scene, and he rocked the hell out of the speech after it.  Talk about an Enjolras moment for the ages, where you can see the crazy and the idealism all expressed in the gleam in those staring, trance-like eyes as he hoarsely whispers his way to the end of that speech–he looks like a fucking crazy biblical prophet foreseeing the apocalypse.  Which, I guess, is kinda what Enjolras is after all. 


^^^1966 Soviet animated short, “Gavrosh” (Гаврош).  I’m actually really fascinated by the animation style in this thing: it’s grotesque and nightmarish and scary as all hell, and everyone looks strung out on meth, but there’s something strange and beautiful and Tim Burton-y to the universe they create.  This is Enjolras, though he doesn’t have a huge part to play here (I mean, the whole thing is just over 15 minutes long or something).  


^^^1971 Spanish (Castilian) telenovela, Los Miserables.  Enjolras is pretty cool in this, not gonna lie.  But I might also be a bit biased and prejudiced by that amazing, amazing, amazing coat he chooses to put on his body:  

!!!!!!  So that, I can say for this Enjolras: he has good fashion sense.  There are many who don’t.  I won’t name names.  Musical!Enjolras. 


^^^1972 French miniseries.  Cold as fucking ice, this one.  Total sociopath and dead behind the eyes.  To understate the matter: definitely not a touchy-feely Enjolras.  Also, he looks a little too Corsican to be flinging poo at Corsica and Napoleon…


^^^1978 American TV movie.  Meh, didn’t leave a strong impression on me.  His funniest moment was probably how he died–thought he was being sneaky, he did.


^^^1979 Japanese animated series, “Jean Valjean Monogatari” (ジャン・バルジャン物語).  Doesn’t have much screen time, but what little he has is pretty well spent.  WTF is that chin, though…?  I think when they heard Hugo say “high forehead” they got confused as to which end of the face that was.


^^^1982 French movie.  Bad teeth.  Funny Saint-Just earring.  Likes to bust Courfeyrac’s balls (“you’re an hour late!”), even when Combeferre got to the meeting, like, just two minutes earlier.


^^^1985 Japanese manga.  I know next to nothing about this manga–pretty much just what you see here.  He has a certain retro shoujo look to him…a little Rose of Versailles-meets-Tezuka going on there.  At least he dies properly.  (Though I’m guessing there wasn’t much of a Grantaire in this version, since he gets to die alone…)  “Republique banzai!”


^^^1985-present, British stage musical.   A Tony-winning ass…oops, I mean role, a Tony-winning role.  Those tight pants couldn’t have hurt.  The musical saw Enjolras’ promotion from a secondary or tertiary character in the novel to one of the most memorable characters in the musical, despite never having his name sung in the libretto even once.  Like Eponine (also a Tony-winning role), he receives much more than his fair share of great music and striking moments, not least of which being the original turntable staging of his death scene on the barricade, a piece of stagecraft so creepily beautiful that it drew a round of applause when I saw the show in Japan.


^^^1992 French animated series.  Easily the worst Les Mis adaptation ever made, and I certainly don’t just mean the design of Enjolras.  Makes for amazing drinking games, though.


^^^1998 American movie.  It’s kinda hard to say there’s an actual Enjolras in this movie at all, except in name only.  His entire role in the plot has been assigned to Marius instead, to much confusion.  This guy is left with a totally thankless job.  He’s just there to be the wet-blanket whiny nursemaid to Marius’ oh-so-awesome-impulsive-revolutionary-awesomeness.  He also has the dubious honor of giving voice to one of the absolute stupidest lines to ever pass the lips of an Enjolras: [discussing Marius’ sex life:] “After tomorrow you can make love to her as a free man!”  Ick, I think I need a shower just from typing that…


^^^1998 Japanese fighting game “Arm Joe.”  Do I really even need to say anything here?  I think Arm Joe generally speaks for itself.  See the entry on musical!Enjolras above, since this is basically him.  (Except dropping barricades on people and stuff, like a fucking 1832 Wizard of Oz tornado.) 


^^^2000 European miniseries.  Marius’ BFF slumber party bro.  I have serious doubts about this Enjolras’ maturity and readiness to take on the task of being an Enjolras.  Watching the Friends rallying for the revolution is like watching a frat party spilling out into a street riot on a Saturday night: hyped-up grinning Enjolras on a table, going, “Yeahhhh, let’s go build a barricade, u guyz!!!  Yeahhhh!”  Also, I feel like I’m watching the musical with this “Marius&Enjolras best friends 4 eva” bullshit–I mean, Courfeyrac exists in this version.  Why?  He sure as shit doesn’t have anything to do.


^^^2007 Japanese animated series, Les Misérables: Shoujo Cosette (レ・ミゼラブル 少女コゼット).  This Enjolras made a pretense of being aloof and cool in his first appearance in this anime, but in the end he turned out to be pretty soft and smiley for an Enjolras, and easygoing, and totally understanding when you tell him you’d rather not go to his barricade and get yourself killed.  He’s willing to listen to other people’s opinions, he goes through moments of doubt at the barricade, and he doesn’t even get mad while fending off Combeferre’s awkward advances (yay for workplace sexual harassment…?).


^^^2009 Japanese manga.  This Enjolras is essentially an offshoot of musical!Enjolras, with all the same totally all-consuming problems.  Of course I mean Marius’ love life, not building a doomed barricade.


^^^2010 French bande dessinée.  Forget Corsica, son, what you need is some conditioner–some serious split ends there.  Don’t you just hate it when men with long hair don’t take care of it?  But seriously, this is the best argument I’ve ever seen against Enjolras having a ponytail–he’s so busy with other shit that this is seriously what his hair would look like if it were long.


^^^2012 American-British movie musical.  This musical!Enjolras was saddled with the usual musical!Enjolras distractions: having to supervise Marius’ antics; being undermined in his own meetings by drunks and dumbasses; having to wear ridiculously ridiculous gaudy clothes; having to admit, in the end, that in fact he was “on his own” and “has no friends.”  Beyond the junk that his stage predecessor had to deal with, he also suffered the indignity of having to fall backwards out of a window and try to make it look cool. 


^^^2014 American manga.  This Enjolras is pretty much what you have come to expect from a manga version by now.  Too much ponytail, of course, and him saying that quote in that speech bubble above makes me want to put my fist through my screen.


^^^2014-2015 Japanese manga.  The jury is still out on this one–he’s still a work in progress.  So far, doing an okay job at Enjolrasing (despite sporting a ponytail, ew), but the real test will be if, in the animal scheme of the manga, he is represented by an eagle at the barricades.  I mean, it’s almost too obvious, right?


^^^2015 British picture book.  I love that speech bubble: I care about Les Misérables, Enjolras!  But, um, he looks a bit like an unkempt Dumas, complete with big ol’ cup of wine sloshing around.  Is that a comparison Enjolras would have wanted to draw…?  I honestly doubt it–it’s like Robespierre being asked if he’d like to be drawn like Danton in a picture book version of his adventures.



Okay, so overall, I will give them this: Enjolras seems to be getting blonder as time goes by.  Also, the Japanese win the prize here, because they are absolutely adamant that he is blond.  (Then again, they think all French people are blond, so…Also, they need to cut his ponytail off, but for whatever “Rose of Versailles” influenced reason, it persists in Japanese versions.)

I think I got pretty much every Enjolras who’s ever existed and who is reasonably available for the getting.  If I’ve forgotten any, or if you know of some I can find somewhere else, do let me know, and I’ll add to the master list! 

Also, if you have any questions about any of these versions of Les Mis or about their Enjolrati, ask away, and I will do my best to answer them!
