everything about that scene is perfect

bookishgirl-love  asked:

How is one supposed to get over this ep? I mean. Before watching it, based on what I saw on twitter, I thought I wouldn't like it but BOY was I wrong. It was perfect. The polygraph scene was so revealing AND THAT ALMOST KISS. Don't get me started. I loved it. Maybe it's just me, though, but didn't it seem strange to you that the characters were like 'lighter'? Like everything was less serious, there were faces and little jokes and SMILES. AND JANE KNEW ABOUT NAS. That is NOT nice.

(Sorry, ran out of space) How did she knooow??? I hated how her face changed when she asked about it. But I digress. I don’t know if it was the long wait, the built up hope or what, but I loved this ep. I think it’s one of my favouritest ever (yeah, I know that’s not a word, but seemed fitting) Anyway, I needed a place to ramble about it because I’m SO CRAZY about it… Thanks for providing your ask box for that! Xoxo

You are never ever expected to get over this episode. This episode will be our end. Congratulations. 

The polygraph was GOLD. PURE PURE GOLD. OMG. Everything about it was so perfect. From the questions. To their answers. To their body language and their looks and how honest they were. You know they both can lie on polygraph and make it work but no the TRUTH was more important even if it was all part of a sick scavenger hunt!

Then the almost kiss scene? KILL ME NOW! OR YOU KNOW WHAT DO NOT KILL ME BECAUSE THEY ALREADY DID. THEY KILLLLLEEEEEEEED ME DED!

From the adorableness of the whole team hanging out and having a drink (after a full adorable day of Weller and his Women) and Tasha being Tasha and Patterson being Patterson and Jane being awkward and cute.

And then Patty and Tasha leave and Kurt does this adorable quick look over his shoulder to make sure they’re out of ear shot before he turns to talk to Jane. AND HE HAS NO REASON TO TALK TO HER OR BRING UP WHAT HAPPENED DURING THE MISSION EXCEPT THAT HE WANTS HER TO KNOW!

THIS BOY IS MADLY IN LOVE AND HE IS DONE JUST HOLDING IT IN! HE WANTS JANE TO KNOW HOW HE FEELS AND HE JUST FUCKING OPENS HIS MOUTH AND IT ALL STARTS COMING OUT LIKE THE FLOODGATES OPENED AND HIS HEART IS POURING OUT!

AND JANIE! OMG JANIE SHE CANNOT BELIEVE IT BUT IT IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING AND OMG SHE CANNOT BE HAPPIER!

And then they just look at each for a moment and then slowly, SO FUCKING SLOWLY THEY START TO LEAN IN AND IT IS ACTUALLY GONNA HAPPEN!

And by IT I mean they will get interrupted because it has been happening all year and the joke is not just us who have picked up on this ridiculous pattern THEY TOO HAVE NOTICED HOW RIDICULOUS ALL THIS IS AND THEIR LAUGHTER AND ABSOLUTE “CAN YOU FUCKING BELIEVE IT” REACTION IS PRICELESS!

yeah I ignored the Nas bit… I kinda figured she knew because everyone kinda knew? but I guess Reade said it best when he said “I have no idea what you’re talking about” ignoring the problem until it went away was the best way to go.

ETA: AND DO NOT GET ME STARTED ON THEIR FACES WHEN THEY ARE INTERRUPTED AND KURT WELLER’S FUCKING WINK! 

my hands-down favorite scene in FMA:B is when Olivier Armstrong goes to her folks house and is just like: dad, retire and leave me in charge of everything, and also get out and go on a cruise

And he’s like well your brother was supposed to inherit, but you can just fight each other for it

And he and the rest of the family pack nothing but an embarrassing amount of cash and swan off chatting about souvenirs while Olivier and Alex are destroying the living room

How the Winter Soldier shot Nick Fury

I’ve been wanting to make a post about this for a while, even though I might be the only person invested in this, but anyway, here we go.

I’ve seen mentioned several times, in posts about the movie and in fics that the Winter Soldier shot Nick Fury through the window of Steve’s apartment, and every time it makes me groan in frustration because no.

The Winter Soldier didn’t shoot Fury through a window, he shot him through a wall, and I don’t know about you, but it seems like a pretty big difference to me.

(bullet hole in the wall!!)

When I saw the scene the first time, I remember thinking holy shit??? that’s crazy, and for me that’s when the Winter Soldier really became a real, terrifyingly good assassin, that’s when his image as a serious threat solidified.

MORE Beauty and the Beast things I LOVE (collected upon a second viewing):

-The Enchantress/Agathe is played by Hattie Morahan, who played Elinor against Dan Stevens’s Edward in BBC’s 2008 Sense and Sensibility, and I love it when actors are brought back together. Gave me the same smiles as watching Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth in their one scene in The King’s Speech

-LeFou paying everyone in the tavern before “Gaston” because you know he choreographed that months before and they rehearse it every Thursday just in case.

-Cadenza is playing “Be Our Guest” when Maurice overhears the music!

-Maurice’s reaction to Chip is everything

-Maurice and Belle’s relationship is so sweet and wonderful and perfect, and the fact that hearing about it and seeing evidence of it is what finally convinces Beast that not all fathers are douchebags!

-Lumiere’s not a womanizer anymore! He’s devoted to Plumette, not just flirting with her and I love it

-I love Mme. de Garderobe attacking fragile masculinity with gowns and makeup, and then shouting “BE FREE” after them like some gender-role smashing fairy godmother

-”I am not a beast.” Ugh. Just, kill me with perfection why don’t you

-The Beast’s face and eyeroll and nine-year-old boy reaction to Belle’s love of R&J, and the fact that he GIVES HER HIS LIBRARY not because he wants to win her over, but because he just wants her to read better material, and if that isn’t 183% what I would also do, I don’t know what is

-Belle’s happy little shriek after the Beast leaves her alone in the library is all of us don’t pretend it’s not

-Belle trying to hide the rope out the window by standing in front of it. Like, sweetie. 

-The juxtaposition of the opening and closing dances! With Adam in the first one flitting from partner to partner and even when he’s dancing with someone, he’s always looking around for a better option, versus that final dance when his eyes are 100% on Belle

-The castle getting more and more dilapidated as each petal falls

-THE BANTER YES FOREVER

There were so many more things but I couldn’t remember them all and I need to go see it again with a notebook, but SErIOUSLY until then COME GUSH IN MY INBOX I need to talk to people about this movie and I’m driving everyone in my real life crazy

You taught me to be a strong Latina woman. To be bigger than the world was ever gonna give me permission to be. And I have. You taught me not just to exist because I’m worth so much more than that.

A/N: I thoroughly enjoyed writing this, it’s hands down the quickest I have ever written anything because I was so into it. I don’t care who you are, we all have had some sort of insecurity at some point in our life. I hope this is a way for whoever may be struggling with this to learn to accept themselves and if you are in a toxic relationship, you can do so much better. You are all beautiful!! Thanks yall! As always thank you to my forever beta @avasmommy224

It was your second week working as an extra on the show Supernatural. Your boyfriend was beyond unsupportive, he always told you that you were never good enough to be an actress. You weren’t skinny enough for this role or too skinny for that role. You would get an offer for a part and as excited as you were to get his opinion, he always had something negative to say. This time it was for a love interest of Dean Winchester’s. You were a vamp that he’d met in a bar a few episodes behind but you slipped out of the bar when you found out that he was a hunter.

Magnus Bane Is Amazing

but can we talk about how Magnus wanted everything to be perfect for Max/Alec.

Here when he saw that Alec was trusting him with throwing party to Max he decided that it has to be perfect. He did everything that was in his powers to make it an unforgettable experience for everyone.

He even went out of his comfort zone for this.

He welcomed Maryse in his home with smile even through he knew that she hated him. But he knew that it would mean so much to Alec for his mom and him to get along.

He made a theme in Spain theme because he thought that  Maryse and Robert would like that.

He didn’t want any scenes or drama at this ceremony. He wanted everything to be about Max.

He showed his cat eyes to Max even thought it’s really touchy subject to him. But for little Lightwood he did it. Just because he asked. He could just answer him but no, he went all the way.

He bought/bring a gift to Max. Just because. He didn’t have to.

He looked so scared that something wasn’t perfect before Max has to arrive. But fortunately Alec calmed him down.

But he still give himself little something to get through night.A little present.

And even thought he did everything right one little cat disturb his perfect party. And he hated it so much.

(he did so much more just these things but I wanted to show you just some)

Magnus Bane is amazing, caring, selfless being and deserve all the love and care in the world.

Now onto this famous scene from Episode 2: Attack of the Clones.

The importance of this scene is heavy weighted on Anakin’s view point. He starves for affection, for acknowledgment, and for familiarity. After years stuck with the Jedi who we all know by now kept him at arm’s length and never actually accepted him. Now this person, this angel who he longed for and loved since the age of nine has come back to his life and he can’t contain his excitement. It’s as if he was dead until the moment he saw her again. He wants to tell her everything without holding anything back because he knows she won’t judge him… and that is something only his mom ever done for him. A reassurance, that someone [ admittedly ] cares about him *going back to the Japor Snippet scene in Ep1*. Everything seems perfect, too perfect in fact. So naturally, as soon as Padmé opens her mouth in this scene in particular I’m afraid our dear Padawan was able to return to a sense of… difficult reality which clearly expose how much different their upbringing fundamentally is.

Padmé: We used to come here for school retreat. We would swim to that island every day. I love the water. We used to lie out on the sand and let the sun dry us and try to guess the names of the birds singing.

[ note: lol, I just love how she just bragged about water to a slave boy from a dusty planet. Padmé no! ]

And we see unmistakably that Anakin is having hard time sinking in his own feelings. Up till this moment he was able to forget their status: former slave, former queen. But now it’s all back and he can’t even smile. Like at all. And no one of course can expect him to. While he wants to get to know the woman he loves so much, the thing she was saying kinda felt like drinking acid. I mean what is someone like him expected to answer to that? Having to hear; about such beautiful lavished and serene moment so very much unlike anything that happened in his entire harsher young life. This is where the awkwardness begins. At one point he wants her to keep talking to him, and at another he knows he can’t possibly relate to anything she says.

Anakin: I don’t like sand. It’s coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth.

This line isn’t about sand. This line isn’t about Anakin’s hatred of sand. This line is about Anakin’s original home, Tatooine, the place where his mother is (currently) slowly dying in. The muse of his nightly nightmares and where his nonexistence sad childhood had began. Except; he couldn’t just say it out loud. It’d ruin the mood for one thing and surely illustrate the vast gap between their worlds. That could only play into his fears, and serves as reminder that he’s not good enough for her. So, he tries clumsily and awkwardly to connect with her on simpler terms.

This overlooked moment shows how two different worlds came together and how it wasn’t an easy thing to do thanks to the major difference and unforgiving aspects. This very moment also was the start of Anidala courtship.

also the scene where cassian was out in the rain having an existential crisis over whether or not he could kill galen even though he had the perfect shot because he knew it was what he needed to do as a soldier but he had already started caring about jyn and in the end he chose to be a friend and a partner instead of the soldier when he spared galen for jyn’s sake

A very long collection of thoughts about Mylene Cruz and Dizzee Kipling

I’ve been thinking about this for a few days and I think it’s very interesting how “Set Me Free” is somehow an anthem for both Mylene and Dizzee’s search of freedom. They’re both very different characters and they don’t interact much but both have the desire to break free from what’s holding them back in their lives. Like the whole theme of freedom can definitely be applied to all the characters (especially Shao and his need to break free from Fat Annie and finally do what he likes without being constantly pursued be her because my son deserves to be happy and I’ll probably write something about him too) but for example Zeke’s storyline centers more about him choosing between two worlds (and I would push it as far as to say that it’s a conflict between choosing reason or passion often featured in classicism but that’s for another day) than searching for personal freedom and you don’t see that theme applied and emphasized for other characters as much as it is for Mylene and Dizzee.

Their desire for freedom is different however, as Mylene needs to free herself from her abusive background and people’s expectations of her and how they all want to control her and push her in different directions without considering what she wants (except for Lydia who deeply supports Mylene like the awesome mother she is). Dizzee’s struggle obviously comes with his sexuality and his identity. It’s about him figuring out what he wants to be and what he has to let go of in order to be his true self. I would say that despite the fact that he’s a rebel he also seems to be torn by his relative’s expectations of him, as I can remember him writing “Every part of me goes in different directions” which I think proves my point further.

But what is even more interesting is that even though the song says “come set me free” their story proves that even though someone can help with that (like Thor kind of pushes Dizzee to question himself even though his struggle with that was already here before he met him), they can’t completely do that for them and that they have to do it themselves because in the end, it’s their journey, and as much as Zeke loves Mylene, and Thor loves Dizzee, they don’t have the capacity to do something only Mylene and Dizzee can do.

And the ending kind of seems to point that they are both taking that step ; Mylene starts to impose her own terms on Roy and make him understand very firmly that this is her career and that she’s the one that gets to decide. It’s also worth noticing that Ramon’s suicide plays a part in it, though it is pretty ironic : he killed himself in order to punish Mylene and his family and even though he caused them and her a lot of grief, it also had a role in freeing Mylene from his control which also brings me back to Shane telling her that when you love someone you have to set them free. Ramon was definitely an abusive fanatic prick who deserved everything that happened to him but he did love Mylene, though it was definitely toxic and controlling. Freeing her wasn’t his intention but he ended up doing that. And then there’s the more obvious love Lydia and Zeke have for Mylene ; Lydia is very supportive of her daughter and says herself that she’s decided to set Mylene free and Zeke lets her pursue her career without holding her back even though it makes him sad to see her leave because he knows it’s good for her and wants her to be happy (though it can be argued that he also does have some expectations of Mylene, like how she’s supposed to be his perfect butterscotch queen, which is sweet in itself but doesn’t really help her I think).

It’s more ambiguous for Dizzee because that goddamn ending left everything open to interpretation but collecting what Stephen said about him and my own thoughts, he’s “down the rabbit hole” and a part of him has to die in order for him to be true and free. As he says in the scene where he’s dancing covered in paint, he’s finally ready to die and go to his first opera. The opera having been confirmed a metaphor for his same-sex attraction, I think that when he comes out of that tunnel (because he will ok), he’d finally have let go of what was holding him back and he’ll hopefully be able to live happily with Thor, doing art and just enjoying himself because as others have pointed out, he’s such a hopeful and wonderful character. I think Stephen also specified that the scene was drug induced so the metaphor works and Dizzee’s the one that decides if he wants to let a certain part of him die. As usual I’m probably wrong and overanalyzing things but needed to put my thoughts down.

THIS WAS SUCH A CUTE SCENE OMG

D’YOU SEE HOW HAPPY SHE IS?! DO YOU?

Warning: (Y/E/C) is Your Eye Colour.


It has been a long and tiring day at school and to top it, you still had some projects to finish with your project buddy and best friend, Clay Jensen.

“Are you tired?” Clay worriedly asked you after he saw you yawning for the hundredth time now. “We can do it some other day, if you want. The due of the project is two weeks from now.”

“No,” You smiled at him as he was so caring and thoughtful. “it’s fine, Clay.”

“Are you sure?” He assured as he parked your bike beside his.

“I am sure, Clay!” You playfully slapped him with your black binders and you rolled your eyes as he was starting to annoy you.

“Alright, alright.” He huffed as he gave up on reassuring you. He then looked at you, pretending to be annoyed because of your actions. “Fine then.”

“Finally,” You were relieved when you both headed to his house’s doorstep. “thank God.”

“What? Finally, we are home or finally, I stopped annoying you?” He raised an eyebrow as he opened the door with his keys.

“Both!” You honestly answered and you both entered the Jensen’s home laughing and guffawing, as if something was really funny about it.

“It seems like you are both happy.” You heard a sweet voice coming from the living room.

“At least, you are honest.” He winked at you but quickly turned his head to the living room as he saw his Mum staring at him. “Oh mum, don’t you have any work for today?”

“I wanted to bring these stuffs at home.” She waved some papers that were in her hands and you noticed Clay shaking his head. You then carefully looked around the house. It was clean and perfectly in order. “(Y/N)?”

“Oh, yup!” Clay smiled a little bit and he pulled you to enter the living room with him. You hated him at that moment since you were somehow shy, of course, but you quickly felt comfortable and at home when you saw his mother smiling.

“Lainie!” You smiled at her and she smiled back at you. You met Clay’s mother during the parents’ meeting at your school. “How are you?”

“I’m stressed for works and for my rebellious son right here.” She pointed at the messy piles of papers on her desk and then at Clay. You just laughed as you saw Clay pouting.

“I can imagine.” You nodded, agreeing for what she has just said. “Clay’s been stressing me too.”

“What?!” Clay looked at you and he pretended to be offended for what you have just confessed. His mum laughed and you flashed him an apologetic smile as he rolled his eyes in response.

“Mum, we’re finishing our assigned project in my room.” Clay then said, turning serious as he changed the topic.

“Sure.” Lainie smiled and you flashed her a sweet smile, before you headed to the stairs with Clay. “(Y/N), does it bother you having dinner with us?”

“Of course not, I would voluntarily join you.” You kindly said and you noticed Clay smiling widely while he stood beside you. “Thank you.”

“No, thank you.” Lainie sympathetically answered and Clay started going upstairs. “Clay?”

“Mum?” He suddenly stopped in the middle of the stair and you almost bumped him.

“Leave your room’s door open.” You giggled at hearing his mum’s reminder.

“Oh my God, Mum!” Clay whined and it made you laugh even more. He continued going upstairs and he led you to his room, leaving the door open like what his mother has reminded him. “Idiot, you are having so much fun here, eh?”

“Oh, shut up Jensen!” You flashed him a death glare as you carelessly plopped your things on his desk. “Shall we start?” Your gaze softened and he flashed you his flat smile, nodding.

“Yup.” He shortly answered and he started to get the materials that you needed to conclude your project.

You both spent the time doing your project, but it didn’t mean that you were serious and deadpan. He kept on doing silly things to make you laugh and to keep you awake. Clay Jensen – that adorable and dorky man that you’ve always liked because he was himself whenever you were with him. Who wouldn’t love him? Everybody would.

“Clay, you are an idiot!” You exclaimed when he poked fun of himself.

“It’s true that you considered me as a nerd when you first met me. Don’t lie.” He ranted as he was trying to cut a piece of paper for the almost finished project.

“It’s not true!” You lied through your teeth. He was right, you really considered him as one of those nerds, one of those good-looking nerds.

“I would kiss you so you would shut your mouth up!” Clay blurted out and your eyes both grew wide. You looked at him putting his scissors and paper down on the floor and he looked straight into your (Y/E/C) orbs.

“Clay?” You stopped yourself from doing anything and you stared at Clay as he bit his red bottom lip. He was shocked too, but he perfectly knew that he couldn’t take his words back anymore.

He created an awkward pace between the two of you, but then you suddenly found yourself closing your eyes and leaning forward, maybe copying Clay’s actions too.

A little moment later, you felt two soft lips on yours and you both slowly deepened the kiss, him constantly pulling your body closer to him. He caressed your cheek as he lingered the taste that your lips allowed and you had your arms wrapped around his neck. You felt some sort of sparks and nervousness, even though you imagined this scene in your head for uncountable times now.

He was about to close the door, but you both heard some footsteps and you suddenly broke the kiss, both scared to be caught.

“Guys, dinner is ready.” You both looked where the deep voice came from and you both nodded, still astonished for the happening between the two of you. Matt, Clay’s father, had a smirk on his face before going back downstairs and you wondered if he saw everything.

“C’mon?” You nodded as your thoughts faded away and you both followed his father.  “That was perfect.” You flashed him an embarrassed but happy smile.

“It was.” You agreed as you both entered the dining room. You could bet that you saw Clay blushing and smiling widely, you couldn’t be wrong with that.

When you entered the room, you saw his parents smiling widely and you both got into your places, so you could start having your dinner.

“How’s your project going on?” Lainie has asked with a bright smile on her face. You looked at Clay, giving him the cue that it was his turn to answer.

“Fine, it’s almost finished.” Clay has said as he tried to chew his food slowly.

“Oh, project?” Matt has asked and you noticed Clay widened his eyes. “Your project consists of kissing and cuddling?”

“Dad!” Clay protested and you both became crimson red in your face and you felt a burning sensation in your whole body. You were embarrassed and dumbfounded.

“Congrats!” His parents said in unison and they both laughed as they saw your reaction. Clay then caressed your hand under the table to calm you down and you both laughed together with his parents.

“Another reason why my door should be shut.” Clay jokingly said. “Always.”

“You have a point in there, buddy!” His father agreed and you all laughed as you felt more relaxed, welcomed and snugged as a bug in a rug.


Sad Newsies is over (again) so I made my own papes!

So I saw Newsies twice (might have skipped class to watch it the second time whoops) and here are some of my favorite parts:

- Seeing Broadway newsies and toursies all performing together

- The projections of the headlines/Jack’s drawing of Katherine

- Hearing “Letter from the Refuge” in hd

- Seeing newsies spit in hd

- Jeremy Jordan’s raw emotion while singing Santa Fe

- Kara’s bro voice when she says “for sure”

- The camera angles esp during the fight scene

- And when it zooms in on Davey after Jack betrays him and the guys and then it pans back to Jack who just looks so helpless

- The world’s yer erster!

- Les making the deal w/ Jack

- Les’s reaction to Medda’s theatre

- How excited Les got when Katherine said “let’s get drunk!” in King of NY

- Just everything about Les he’s perfect

- GO AND LOOK IT UP THE POOoOooOoR GUUuyYYY’S HEAD IS SPINNING

- How Davey says “… that’s it??” after Katherine first taps in King of NY

- The face Jack makes after shaking Roosevelt’s hand

- The audience losing their minds during the key change in Once and For All when the towers move forward and also during Brooklyn’s Here

- The audience cracking up at “why do old people talk so much?” “to prove they’re still alove”

- When Hannah secretly applauds Jack for the strike in Pulitzer’s office

- When the live audience throws papes at the stage during curtain call

- Jeremy attempting to do a dance move and almost falling during curtain call

- The girl next to me sadly whispering “oh Crutchie” after he sings “watch me stand, watch me run” during the Prologue

- The same girl during credits: “Tommy Braco?? Tommy BRACO?!?” and “Spot Conlan?! Spot CONLAN?!?” “WHY CAN’T THEY BOTH BE SPELLED RIGHT AT THE SAME TIME?!”

- Basically I loved everything 

Dislikes:

- It’s not in theaters anymore and it’s not available for purchase (yet, hopefully it will be soon)

- So little screen time for Spot Conlon and Kid Blink, aka the sweet cinnamon roll that is Andy Richardson 

- I basically cried for the whole 2 and a half hours

Some Worldbuilding Thoughts

Recently, I had a fun conversation with @sansjoshiki, who sent us a question on anon but then followed up with my request for more information. (Thanks for doing that!) It’s exciting to be able to answer questions to the best of our ability because we have all the information! 

Anyway, a lot of the stuff I said was not specific to their world, and I think that some of you may enjoy and benefit from it, so here’s some general advice on putting worlds together and incorporating details into your stories!


So, having a single concept (or a few unrelated concepts) and building a world and story from it is completely doable, and can be a lot of fun! But it can also be totally overwhelming and difficult to decide just how much to build, what to focus on, and how to incorporate all of it. 

This process is easier if you have a plot or a character in mind, because you can use that as a lens to decide what parts of the world are important to focus on. For instance, if your character is royalty, do they care how the peasants get water? Will that factoid ever show up? Probably not. With that in mind, it’s fine to have no detail or vaguery in regards to things that aren’t relevant, so don’t strain yourself trying to explain every little thing.

Using guides to help you come up with your world can be extremely helpful to cover all the relevant bases, but no guide will ever match exactly what you need for your story in particular. I think that possibly the best thing for you to do is to start thinking about your character and/or plot. If you don’t have a plot, think about elements in the world that are especially interesting to you and contemplate ways to get those involved in your plot. If you do have a plot, then start thinking about particular aspects of your world that will definitely be involved. If your plot/character(s) are involved with the government, you’ll need to have a pretty solid idea of how that government functions, but if not, that’s a detail you can probably gloss over with only basic details.

If your plot is detailed, start thinking of particular scenes that you want to write in it. For instance, if you want a scene to take place in a store or market, you’ll need to think about how that’s laid out. Is there just one store that sells almost everything? Do most shops specify? Is there an open-forum market with lots of small vendors, or large department stores? How does the currency work? (Actually, “how does the currency work” is a question you should probably answer regardless of whether economics will be a focus, unless the average person on your world doesn’t use currency).

With this in mind, build the parts of the world that pertain to a scene until you can get a sense of what it would be like to be there. Think about real-world situations that are similar; what does it feel like to be in a government building? In a bank? In a convenience store? In a high-priced and specialized boutique? On a farm? How would these things change based on the ways your world works? For instance, if your world no longer employs people to run cash registers and instead uses something like Walmart’s self-checkout, how does that change the experience of going to the store?

Once you have a basic sense for the scene, start writing! You don’t need to know every detail by this step; in fact, don’t try to know every detail. Just place yourself with your character in the scene, and think about what you’d notice and what’s important.

However, be careful about glossing over “unimportant” things, or at least keep in mind that you did. If a detail is irrelevant in an early scene, but then becomes important later, you don’t want to contradict what you’ve said before. I’m guilty of this; I write along willy-nilly, and sometimes when I’m rereading, I realized that a detail I develop well in chapter 5 is contradicted by something I handwaved in chapter 2. This is fixable, of course, but you might save yourself a little headache by thinking about it beforehand. Having to rewrite what used to be the perfect scene because one detail changes everything is annoying.

Also, don’t be tempted to start from the very beginning with this method of worldbuilding a single scene; think of scenes that are critical to your story and what they’ll entail, and work backwards to the ones that are less critical.

Ultimately, don’t forget that worldbuilding shouldn’t get wholly in the way of your writing. It can be lots of fun and create a great story, but if you find yourself never starting because you don’t have all the details in place, relax.

Sometimes, “Just start writing” can be the best thing when you’re stuck with worldbuilding. If a detail is needed to make the story work, or to make the world believable, you’ll realize that as you go, and then you can pause, figure it out, and then carry on.

As for putting an adequate amount of world detail in, we’ve done a few posts about that in past. I’ll say a few words about that:

Putting detail in can be tricky, because you know all these things about your world and many of them might be working together to create a scene. However, you don’t want to annoy or bore your reader, so you have to limit yourself. Having a beta reader can be great for that, because they can let you know when you have too much or too little detail. Personally, I think that erring on the side of too little and then having your beta reader tell you so is best. If you’re confusing your readers, you’ll need to put more detail in, but people are less likely to tell you when you have too much detail. Try to keep in mind what’s essential for the world, and also what’s abnormal. Your character isn’t likely to be thinking about how the space-age toilet works (unless they work in the sci-fi equivalent of plumbing), and even though knowing what happens to the waste can be important to the author, it is unlikely to come up in a story. Put yourself in that situation, remind yourself that everything you’ve built is the norm for that world, and then think about what you’d actually notice.

If you have abnormal things going on, those are easier to explain and make it make sense that you are explaining them. This can also be used to show what the norm is: “Instead of just going into the vaporizer like it always did, [character]’s urine was sitting in the receptacle, making the bathroom smell bad.” Bam, now we know that toilets have vaporizers and that this one is malfunctioning.


Thanks for reading, and happy building! -Werew

Lena Luthor Appreciation Week - Day: When you started loving Lena

I started loving Lena during 2x08. I know that’s kinda late but let me explain. :) Okay you guys, I get how everyone loved Lena the moment they knew Katie Mcgrath was gonna portray her, or how everybody loved Lena right after her first scene during 2x01. I get it. Katie Mcgrath was perfect for the role. And the way Lena Luthor talked about being adopted, about Lex, and trying to make a name outside of her family, it was just everything. And that’s when I immediately shipped Supercorp. They had me at ‘and who are you exactly?’. I should probably say I started loving her when she and Winn did their science thing under the table in the gala or when she helped Kara with the alien fight club but No that wasn’t it. Despite shipping Supercorp back then to death, there was something about Lena I couldn’t quite figure out. But when this scene above happened…  

“ I thought you were different. You wear that symbol on your chest and everyone thinks youre good. How many times did your cousin put that high and mighty costume and come after Lex? My mother is no saint but you come in here and accuse her of being the devil incarnate, how long before you come after me?”

This is when I exactly fell in love with Lena Luthor. Not because of her chemistry with Kara, not because of Supercorp, not because of Katie Mcgrath but because of how complex her character is. Before 2x08, Lena was always portrayed as someone who was trying to step out of the shadows of her family. Everyone doubted her intentions. Before 2x08, Lena always made sure she was the best version of herself. Letting everyone see nothing but the good in her. And she was. But to every coin, there is always two sides. and in this scene we get to see that. We get to see the negative feelings Lena had kept aside. Her resentment and bitterness. We get to see how she probably felt that the world was being unfair. We get to see that despite not having a good relationship with her mother, she still wanted to believe that Lillian wasn’t capable of doing such thing. Yes, in that scene she wasn’t the “all good” Lena people wished her to be. but that made her more relatable. This scene made her a real person. The ironic thing is that the scene with her mother after this was supposed to make the viewers doubt her but this scene made me believed in her more. Katie Mcgrath’s acting, the way Lena looked so hurt during this scene, it made me understand Lena’s character even better. Like KAra did, I believed in Lena. And despite having every reason to join Cadmus, Lena still chooses not to. And ever since 2x08, I  love Lena Luthor even more and more.

You know in December we all did our top 10 robron kisses lists? Well, we’ve had another 9 (yes?) kisses since then so why don’t we fill this miserable void time by doing it again?

01.  The Woolpack pre-SSW kiss, because it is hot af, and they’re all over each other, and for Robert it’s all “I can’t wait to marry you and do this forever”, but for Aaron it’s just his gorgeous horny boyfriend again and he’s so willing to just go with it. 

02. The SSW kiss in the woods, because that’s just a blissfully perfect scene, rounded off with a perfect kiss, and they just love each other so much.

03.  The Reunion kiss, because they’ve both waited so long and it’s so gentle and full of promise and it’s like they’re getting another first kiss, which is different but no less “them”.

04. The Wedding Dance kiss, because a) it’s in public, in front of their families and friends, and neither of them are remotely bothered or embarrassed by it, which says everything about how happy and content they are, and b) Robert reaches up to cup Aaron’s cheek and tries to deepen the kiss, 100% ready to just go for it right there in the middle of the pub, before they’re sadly interrupted by Chas. 

05. The Goodbye kiss, because it’s so quiet and soft and gentle, but there’s so much love and fear and need there. They’re just clinging onto each other for dear life.

06.  The Portacabin kiss, because they spent a whole day using farm work as foreplay and they knew as they were walking up there that as soon as the door closed behind them they were going to fuck, and Aaron is definitely in charge and Robert is so pleased and they’re so damn hot.

07. The Night-time Bar kiss, because even after one of the worst fights of their relationship and one of them ending up in a cell, they still look at each other like that. They’re both admitting that the only place they want to be is with each other.

08.  The Engagement kiss in the hospital, because they’re so happy and in love and engaged and everything is good in the world.

09.  The First kiss, because they’re so greedy for each other and they’ve been dancing around it for long enough and it’s like it can’t go another second without happening.

10. The Deleted Christmas kiss - so you may have noticed that most of these are not just one kiss, but two kisses and I will forever be annoyed that this one was deleted and that Charity got in the way of the second kiss because it sounds amazing. They love each other so much!
