favorite scene hands down

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 


So Sherlock deduced that Faith is suicidal because she’s walking around with a cane, no coat on, a gun, and no plan to get home. Which we are then, on camera, explicitly told parallels ASIP John Watson.

So he comes up with a reason to have Faith by his side so he can help her through her danger night.

Which is not at all dissimilar to having John tag along to angelo’s, go on a chase, and spark a joy for life again.

Sherlock knew. When he summoned John across London on that fateful first night “just to send a text”, it wasn’t because he was being a prat, he was trying to save John’s life.

My favorite part of this scene is that Maggie literally cannot contain her admiration over Alex, even when she is upset. If you look really close, the only time Maggie is showing her full genuine smile is when Alex is looking down. As soon as Alex looks back up, Maggie tries to hide it. She attempts to hide her smile because she wants Alex to understand the seriousness of their conversation. There are other instances where Maggie shows microexpressions of happiness/joy/understanding/love in this scene as well. 

A microexpression is a brief, involuntary facial expression shown on the face of humans according to emotions experienced. They usually occur in high-stakes situations, where people have something to lose or gain. Microexpressions occur when a person is consciously trying to conceal all signs of how they are feeling, or when a person does not consciously know how they are feeling. Unlike regular facial expressions, it is difficult/impossible to hide microexpression reactions. Microexpressions cannot be controlled as they happen in a fraction of a second, but it’s possible to capture someone’s expressions with a high speed camera and replay them at much slower speeds. Microexpressions express the seven universal emotions: disgust, anger, fear, sadness, happiness, contempt, and surprise.

Two other microexpression bonuses: 

After Alex says, “I have always felt so responsible, like the weight of the world responsible”
Maggie’s reaction: Lips quickly pressed together in understanding (this one is a little harder to see).

After Alex says, “I just want to be happy… with you” 
Maggie’s reaction: Lips form a quick smile expressing joy

AMA Transcript: Criss-Crossed

This week, @soundofez​ dropped by to chat about her 2016 Resbang, Criss-Crossed! Here’s some of what went down:

Q: What was your favorite scene to write?

fez: Fave scene hands down was the opening scene, it was one of the first I wrote. I had a lot of fun with Spirit’s texts though. x)

Q: Did you always plan for two pairings to be developed simultaneously or did it pop up in the middle of planning?

fez: Deffo planned for the two pairings and it was HARD AS BALLS.

Q: How did you decide which characters would be temporary villians?

fez: I just wanted the villains to be recognizable characters with significant ties to either Soul or Maka? There’s actually a pretty neat split: Tsubaki and B*S are the friends, Wes and Spirit are the family units, Tsubaki and Wes are Soul’s, and B*S and Spirit are Maka’s. Stein and Marie, of course, were there to be relevant to their plotline, and Crona is the forever villain. Arachne used to be Medusa until… um… canon parallels + plot relevance. In terms of who tf knows what’s going on between her and Lord Death? Certainly not me. Medusa was going to have a creepy fixation on Stein.

Q: Did you secretly plan to make people fall in like with ML? *eyebrow waggle*

Top 6 Teslen Things

I’m not sure what you meant by “Teslen Things,” so I’m gonna list my favorite scenes lol. Which is gonna be really hard… I LOVE ALL OF THEM SO MUCH

1. This scene from “Awakening”:

“Do you remember the leaves of autumn that time we met at Oxford? […] That crimson dress you were wearing. […] Any sensible woman would have worn black, you know, to fit in. But not Helen Magnus, oh no.”

THIS IS HANDS DOWN MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE TESLEN SCENE. He’s literally dying and all he can think about is the first time they met. He was so smitten with her even then, and so excited by how different she was from all the other women. He valued her intelligence and her independence, and it was love at first sight (at least on his part) FIGHT ME.

2. The deleted scene from “Sanctuary for None” where Tesla tries to get her to admit that she traveled back in time and re-lived the last 113 years. “So I’m wondering if the Helen Magnus who wined and dined me at Hotel Miraflores in 1902 was you… or the other you.” I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT THIS. ♥

3. The scene in “Trail of Blood” where she realizes that he was there in search of the source blood, and she gets super angry with him. The way she just ignores him when he says “Helen” in such a hurt voice is so heartbreaking. HIS FACE MAKES ME WANT TO HUG HIM SO BADLY. I have a soft spot for this scene because of the way I edited it in my first Teslen video. I’m really really proud of that particular part. :)

4. Their very first scene together in “The Five” where she comes out to meet him and he says “Kiss me and I’ll save your life.” Then turns his head at just the right moment so she kisses his lips instead of his cheek lol. In fact, I love all of the scenes in this episode! It’s my favorite. :)

5. The scene in “Chimera” where he just can’t stop flirting to save his life lol. “How’s your magnetism in here?” “You tell me.” “Really? Even now?” “Sorry… It’s- It’s automatic.” And then literally NINE seconds later he’s flirting again saying “You’re hot when you’re brilliant.” XD

6. The scene in her bedroom in “Animus” where he bursts in and she aims a gun at him. Then she says “You are brilliant,” so he inches closer and says “Don’t I know it…” before she kicks him out lol.
