favourite cast of all time though

My Current Top-Ten Anime

1. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood - My all-time favourite though I don’t really talk about it. It has one of the best world-building I’ve seen in anime, and I love basically everything about it. Brotherhood is better than the first anime because it has Ling Yao, Mei Chang and Olivier Mira Armstrong in it amongst other things!!

2. Haikyuu!! - One of my favourite sports anime, I’ve fallen in love with almost all of the cast, and it’s the only manga that I follow at the moment too. I love the underdog story and they’re finally going places now! I’m really excited for what the mangaka has in store for us in the future!

3. Yuri!!! on Ice - My current obsession if the things i’m reblogging aren’t making that obvious. This one is a game changer, a history maker! Best anime this season (that i’m watching). If you haven’t watched it yet, leave this post and get on that, stat!!

4. Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso/Your Lie in April - CRIED LIKE A NEWBORN BABY TO THIS! This is such an incredible story about getting over emotional trauma, and rediscovering your passions. Prepare a tissue box or two…hundred.

5. Tiger & Bunny - This one is seriously underrated!! So maybe it’s not for everyone but i loved the family drama, and the relationship building between the two main heroes. The characters are all charming, the villain is positively EVIL, and the plot is great!

6. Hajime no Ippo - In my opinion one of the best sports anime of all time. I can’t recommend it enough - don’t get put off because of it’s art style, it has some unbelievably epic matches! No match is boring!!

Top 10 British Sitcoms! (In my personal opinion)

1) Father Ted (1995 - 1998)

What’s funnier than a bunch of bizarre priests and their clumsy housekeeper who loves tea? Well, barely anything. Hence why this is my number one.

Father Ted is one of those comedy shows that always seems to be on a channel somewhere, and no matter the episode, I’ll end up roaring with laughter. I adore this show on a magical level, and it’s definitely hard to top.

2) Blackadder (1983 - 1989)

Rowan Atkinson at his finest. Don’t get me wrong, I adore Mr Bean, but Blackadder is just spectacular. Fast paced, sarcastic and hilarious, it’s another show that I can always just pick up and burst out laughing at. One of the most interest aspects of the show though is the different era per series, however keeping the same amazing cast. Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie and Tony Robinson’s characters also having a special place in my heart due to the antics and hilarity. 

3) Fawlty Towers (1975 - 1979)

The quintessential British comedy sitcom. I don’t want to say too much about this, because if you have never seen it, shame on you.

4) Black Books (2000 - 2004)

Quite simply one of the greatest, but shortest, sitcoms ever created. Anyone who has actually seen this show has regarded it as one of their favourites of all time for good reason. Black Books follows the character of Bernard Black, the owner of a shoddy and sticky bookshop, and lacks all regard or care for people. The majority of the comedy is derived from Bernard’s two ‘friends’ who attempt to make his lifestyle more socially acceptable, much to his despair. I truly recommend checking out this show, but be prepared to be annoyed that there isn’t more!  

5) Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em (1973 - 1978)

Probably one of the favourite comedy shows I watch with my Grandfather. Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em follows the character of Frank, a childish, often moronic and insanely clumsy individual who only wants best for his family, although all he does is infuriate and anger people. A show with amazing catchphrases and hilarious situations, I simply adore this show.

6) Dads Army (1968 - 1977)

An amazing comedy focused on the Home Guard during the Second World War, the Home Guard were the volunteer army of those deemed ineligible for military service, usually due to age. The majority of the comedy derives from the pure uselessness of the group, and their lack of contribution to the war effort. The humour is often subtle and hilarious, I’d recommend it to anyone, I love it.

7) Porridge (1974 - 1977)

Ronnie Barker was one of the penultimate lords of comedy, that is all.

Porridge follows the goings on in the prison HMP Slade, following the character of Fletcher and his cellmate, an inmate serving his first sentence who Fletcher takes under his wing. The characters are strong and well written, as well as having amazing comedic timing and execution. The majority of the comedy comes from the interactions between the prisoners, as well as their relationships to the guards. It’s a show with a lot of heart and a lot of fun. 

8) Red Dwarf (1988 - ?)

Sci-Fi and sitcom, a bizarre genre hybrid that was an amazing gamble, but alas paid off incredibly well for Red Dwarf. The show follows the interesting cast of characters aboard the ‘Red Dwarf’ ship, all of whom are odd and interesting in their own ways. Unfortunately, I would not do the show justice if I were to attempt to describe the plot, so I shall urge you to check it out yourself. Trust me when I say this is an amazing show though.

9) Only Fools And Horses (1981 - 2003)

One of the longest running and most popular sitcoms in Britain, for good reason might I add. The show primarily follows the family of Del-Boy, Rodney and their Granddad (who is later replaced by Uncle Albert due to the unfortunate passing of the actor). The show is set in Peckham, a district in the south east of London, known for it’s working class citizens, the comedy mainly deriving from the vast array of occurring characters, as well as Del-Boy’s constant attempts of quick-rich schemes, with his main catchphrase being, “this time next year, we’ll be millionaires”. The show is a lot of fun, and the characters are all well written and performed and it has truly earned its cemented place as being one of the best in British history. 

10) Outnumbered (2007 - 2014)

Literally the most hilarious ‘family’ in Britain. Holy crap, I adore this show. The show is centred around a middle-class family who live in West London, the parents of whom, are ‘outnumbered’ by their 3 children. Jake, the typical teen, Ben, the hyperactive and strange child, and Karen, the oddly sarcastic child with a lot of questions, and a lot of answers. 
In essence, it’s a great show with hilarious situations, Karen and Ben being the funniest and most interesting parts of the show in all honesty. Even though it’s number 10 in my list, it’s amazing and I think everyone should attempt to watch this show.

And that comes to the end of my list, have I missed anything? What are your top 10 British Sitcoms?

First Thoughts on the Anastasia Broadway Cast Album

So I grew up watching Don Bluth’s Anastasia, like a lot of people, and it’s now definitely one of my favourite movies of all time. I’m also a huge theatre geek, so when I first heard whispers about an Anastasia broadway musical, I was VERY excited. Sadly, I haven’t watched the show because I live in Manchester, England (I read the plot online and I am VERY disappointed that Rasputin isn’t the antagonist), but I pre-ordered the cast recording asap (I don’t think it has every single song on it, though) and they’ve recently released it onto soundcloud here  and I have opinions that I want to share lmao. Also, these are just my FIRST thoughts, after hearing the album ONCE - in my experience, I tend to grow more attached to songs the more I listen to them, so these definitely aren’t my final opinions on this soundtrack.


Prologue / Once Upon A December - This very first song actually made me cry because of the nostalgia XD and also Mary Beth Peil has an AMAZING voice.

A Rumor In St. Petersburg - I also really like this song, including the additions they made to it. Not much else to say really.

In My Dreams - I got chills listening to this song; it’s so beautiful, I can’t wait to learn it.

Learn To Do It - Admittedly, I personally prefer the faster pace and more upbeat original version of this song, however this new version saved itself with the part where Anya flips her shit and has a go at the boys. Amazing.

The Neva Flows - So this is the antagonist’s (Gleb) first song, and uh…it’s pretty good, I guess, especially during the crescendo. They’re definitely trying to create a more humane “villain”, showing how he’s been affected by what he witnessed as a child. Still would’ve preferred In the Dark of the Night, though…

My Petersburg - I like the energy of the song, very upbeat, I love the ending buildup. And I’ve always loved how adaptations of films delve deeper into the characters’ backstories a bit (like Shrek the Musical)

Once Upon A December - Beautiful. I’ll probably always prefer the original, due to nostalgia, but Christy Altomare did a really good job capturing Anya’s emotions in this more vulnerable moment. They were right to not mess with this song too much.

Stay, I Pray You - I have no idea who tf Count Ipolitov is but this is a very emotional choral song, and has a beautifully melancholic melody. I love how Anastasia ends it.

We’ll Go From There - Awh, this song is so cute! I’m glad they gave Vlad (ha that rhymes) a song about Sophie- sorry, I mean Lily. Nevermind all three of the gang are singing it….I like it! It’s a good, quick way to show their feelings (which are mainly anxiety) at this point.

Still - Um why the fuck is Gleb in love with Anya. I HATE that. Haven’t they met, like, twice at this point? I’ve only read the wikipedia page for the plot so maybe I’m wrong. But still….fuck this subplot. So yeah this song is ok I guess, I think I’m just too stubborn about my dislike for the changed story lmao. I also quite like the whole….idea? of this song, how it ends with “but still…” like, it doesn’t need t explain what comes after the “still”, it just needs to show his hesitation/inner conflict.

Journey To The Past - I’m not bothered by the fact that they moved this song to this point in the story, it still fits well actually, and like with OUAD, they smartly didn’t change it much. And like with OUAD, I’ll always prefer the original, but this version is also amazing.

Paris Holds The Key (To Your Heart) - It’s a great chorus number, and definitely a good one to start off act 2 with. Again, I prefer the original, although I like how Anastasia has a solo in this one too.

Crossing A Bridge - I love this song, tbh I’ve realised I think I just love any added Anya moment now lmao. I’d love to see this live, to see the image of her on the bridge singing this.

Closing/Close The Door - (the wikipedia says “Closing” and the soundcloud name says “Close”). Like the Anya moments, I will lap up ANY added Dowager Empress moments, too! Her tired, hopeless emotions were shown a little bit in the original film, but I love how this explores them further. So low-spirited and heart-wrenching.

Land of Yesterday - Another thing this musical explores more in-depth is Russia in general, the state of it, its people, and this song is really cool. Lily’s voice is amazing!!!! (Caroline O’Connor)

The Countess and the Common Man - Awh Vlad and Lily have a love duet!! Fuck yeah! This is what I signed up for!! It’s funny, flirty, and all-round lovely.

In a Crowd of Thousands - I don’t mind that the story of how Dmitry and Anya’s pasts were linked has changed, because the new one they made up is presented so beautifully in this song. I absolutely LOVE Altomare’s voice in this, possibly more than in the other songs, and omg when she realises!! When she realises!! You’re like oh shit ! It’s her and they both know it now!! It’s also a nice development to Anya and Dmitry’s relationship.

Meant to Be - This was also in the original film, and I think it’s done wonderfully here. ‘Nuff said.

Quartet at the Ballet - The Swan Lake music gives me huge Barbie nostalgia! And then it blends so seamlessly in and out of the OUAD tune…ahh I love it. I like how it shows all these inner thoughts of these different characters, like We’ll Go From There. The ending with the overlapping solos is beautiful omg.

Everything to Win - This is a good song, but not one of my favourites or anything, it’s nice to see Dmitry’s conflict. The ending is sweet (or I guess bittersweet).

Once Upon A December (Reprise) - I’m not crying, YOU’RE crying!!!!

The Press Conference - Yet another good chorus number; I love the typewriter sound effects. And Vlad & Lily’s parts are quite funny (it’s funny when he spells out his name, for some reason. And her high notes at the end..DAMN GIRL). I’m slightly feeling like they’re being kind of lazy with the use of the OUAD tune, however.

Everything to Win (Reprise) - Nice!! Good! I like it!

Still / The Neva Flows (Reprise) - Can Gleb just shut the fuck up already. Yes, I’m still salty. (although admittedly this is a good song - I especially love Anya’s fierceness in it).

Finale - I’m not surprised they decided to end on Once Upon A December, and this is exactly what you’d expect from a musical finale, tbh.

In conclusion - I love the musical’s soundtrack, yet I’m still iffy on the whole villain thing. Feel free to reply or reblog with your own thoughts, it’ll be fun to discuss!

Yuri on Ice ED Instagram posts!

So okay, the best thing I enjoyed about this anime so far is the ED Instagram posts made by the cast ensemble, but it’s such a disservice to have their posts scroll up so fast and I have a mighty need to know what they posted and sharing is caring.

I fully blame jjleeroy15 (aka Jean-Jacques Leroy) for this though because his tag was what caught my attention. I might now have to make him my honorary favourite supporting cast member.   Also LOL sukeota3sisters go figure!

*disclaimer: some emojis were impossible to find so I substituted them with the closest thing that makes sense. Enjoy!

anonymous asked:

Do you know who got called and why for the royal albert hall performance? I think all of them were in phantom before and some were long time performers but how did they choose who to call?

I know that the at-the-time current West End cast were all invited, and some starred in minor/cameo roles. Sofia Escobar and Claire Doyle as additional Il Muto maids, for example. Some of CamMack’s favourites, like Earl Carpenter and Katie Hall, were also invited, and was given equal minor roles - Carpenter as the Auctioneer, and Hall as the Christine double in the title song. Rosemary Ashe also played the Confidante in Il Muto. Other than that, basically everyone else in the cast was alumni, from the show opened in 1986 and to current times. Though in large UK performers, and few or none international performers. I assume this was because of logistics and Equity concerns?

As for the leads, I think both ALW and CamMack got to pick some each, or were in agreement anyway. I remember reading that ALW had previously seen or heard original Carlotta Kiera Duffy in Candide, which was why she was offered the role after a video audition:

“Cameron Mackintosh’s office (producer) contacted my management, who in turn contacted me, in early August asking if I might be interested in the project.

There wasn’t time to assemble everyone in London for a proper live audition. They asked for a video audition so I called my pianist friend, slapped on some diva-like makeup since I was singing for the part of an opera diva, drove to Philly, recorded the excerpts on my iPhone, drove home, somehow figured out how to put them on YouTube with only a private link, and sent them off to my manager.

I received an email from Mackintosh’s office saying they were very impressed by my dedication and chutzpah, and I got offered the role. What a whirlwind! I couldn’t believe it!

-I heard that Andrew Lloyd Webber personally picked you and said something to the effect that your high-D note fried his speaker?
I’m not sure that Andrew personally picked me or not, but they did tell me that my high D in the opening cadenza blew out one of the speakers on his iPad. Whoops!”
( X )

I also remember reading that Ramin Karimloo was invited by CamMack (in a now-gone Playbill article), while Sierra Boggess was invited by ALW:

“I’m in heaven because I love the show and the character so much,” said Boggess, who was personally tapped by composer Andrew Lloyd Webber to star in the anniversary event“ ( X )

But again, I assume the composer and producer was very much in agreement.

I’m translating the main story for Boyfriend (Kari) Kirameki Note. It’s accessible here, and from http://serizawayuririn.tumblr.com/boykira.

Currently, only the prologue and chapter 1 are complete. I will be translating the rest as I go along, but I’ll need time to raise my rank too.

(11/20 Update: Chapter 2 is complete now)

Recently, I noticed many people picking up the game though they haven’t played BF(仮) before. It may be because of the beautiful art, cute graphics, strong cast, and good music. I hope all the new players can find a favourite character in this game, so I decided to translate the story to make it more accessible to everyone. Do feel free to share it with your friends!

Let’s enjoy our time in Fujishiro Academy!


On My Own
Original Cast Recording
On My Own

365 Showtunes DAY 215: LES MISERABLES - On My Own

It’s my sister’s birthday today!

And I am NOT with her right now.

The fact that I’m on my own on her birthday makes me so, so sad. She’s my best friend, the most important person to me, and though I’m sure I could have found a wonderful sister song, I figured I’d post one of my all time favourite musical theatre songs and commiserate that I don’t get to spend my sister’s birthday with her.

For everyone who saw Samantha Barks in the Les Mis movie and were unimpressed with her… THIS is how she’s supposed to sound. Not breathy and weak as she did in the movie.

Love this recording.

An Intro to Weather Magic

let me start off by saying that i don’t recommend weather magic to those who want to control the weather, rather than work with it. the winds are unpredictable, untameable, and (from my experience) do not respond lightly to simply being told what to do. cast a spell for sunny skies and you might wind up with torrential rains. be careful & focused.

timebender25  asked:

I don't think I've properly introduced myself before. My name is TimeBender25. My favourite character in the Undertale cast is Papyrus, though my all time favourite is G. I like Superwholock. I'm following you because a friend of mine showed me your blog. Undertale has taken over more of my life than comfortable, but everyone finds THAT fandom eventually. I'm socially awkward and have difficulty talking to people, which causes most of the regretted words. Heya. Great to meet ya.

Papyrus is definitely the best character in Undertale, and I know exactly what you mean when you find THAT fandom. This is the first one I’ve been in in a very long time and now we’re both in hell with no sign of escape.

The Hatton Garden Job’s best asset though is its cast, who all club together to deliver some fun moments. Leading the line is Matthew Goode, who is brilliant as the man with the grand plan. Larry Lamb and Phil Daniels are always worth your time, TV legend David Calder delivers and Clive Russell provides some nice comic relief touches. As mentioned earlier, Joely Richardson is excellent but could have been used more onscreen, as could True Blood favourite Stephen Moyer. Mark Harris makes for a great boo-hiss villain as a bent copper named Frank Baskin.

Entertainment-focus.com

The Hatton Garden Job is a lot of fun and engages its audience well. It won’t win any awards but it does the basics right and cultivates a great cast dynamic. Plus any film that features London as a star gets my vote. The story is also dramatic and quite remarkable, which keeps the viewer invested. The heist film will always be a decent bet at the box-office and The Hatton Garden Job proves that you can still do it in an engaging and entertaining way.
Brains - Sebastian Stan x Reader

Sebastian loves your brain (simplistic but I’m trying to give you creative freedom lol)

Everyone on set noticed it before you did, and that made you seem very stupid considering the circumstances. You worked on the set of Captain America Civil War which meant you spent a lot of time with the cast, befriending all of them. You and Sebastian were the closest, though you didn’t even realise it.

Now that you were getting married, it was his favourite story to tell other people. He always began the story with, “this is a story all about how the smartest person I knew, and was the dumbest person any one had ever met.”

You of course disagreed with this statement but you allowed him to tell it because you thought it was insanely cute how much he loved the tale of how you two got together. It started off with Sebastian trying to make conversation with you all the time, eventually it just became a natural thing and you’d text each other all the time. By the time Civil War was ending, you’d become attached at the hip and were very sad to be parting.

Scarlet was the one who find you in the supply cupboard crying, “What’s wrong?” She’d asked, not beating around the bush but still running over to you quickly and patting your back gently.

“Nothing,” you said repeatedly, trying to stop yourself from crying but you’d been trying to do that for a while. You’d managed not to cry for the past couple of days, but it was that day when reality hit you hardest. Eventually Scarlet pushed it out of you, making you realise that there was no chance in hell you were going to get away with crying in the closet. “It sounds dumb, but I’m really sad that this is all ending because I know it means me and Seb won’t talk as much, we might not even talk at all.”

Scarlet laughed, which had hurt at first but she quickly explained why she’d found your statement funny. “Sebastian obviously cares a great deal for you, we’ve all noticed from day one.” She said, though your confused expression called for a further explanation, “Sebastian loves you and your brain okay, whenever he’s not with you, all he goes on about is you. I have no doubt in my mind that he’ll try and keep in contact with you.”

“What’s going on in here?” Just as she finished speaking, Sebastian appeared in the doorway and you quickly turned away, trying to hide how you’d been crying.

Scarlet walked over to him and patted his back, “just ask her out already.” Once she finished saying that she left you and Sebastian alone in the supply closet, both of you blushing madly at her statement.

“I- uh- I…” He looked back at you; trying to form some words but his mouth ended up just opening and closing like a goldfish’s. Then he saw you, and how red your eyes and nose were. “Had you been crying?”

“No,” you tried to say confidently but your voice cracked midway, “Honestly I’m fine.”

He moved further into the closet, making you realise that you’d picked a rather claustrophobic place to cry. “You know, if you don’t tell me I can just ask Scarlet who obviously doesn’t have a problem spilling secrets.”

“Obviously,” you mumbled, beginning to play with the sleeves of your jackets. “I just…” It was hard for you to get the truth out, even after what Scarlet had told you, she’d not given you any proof to back up what she’d said and so there was a heavy amount of doubt in the back of your mind. You took a deep breath. “I’m sad that this is all ending, because I’ve really enjoyed my time with you and I don’t want that to end either because… I… well I like you.”

He paused for a moment, “if you really think that I’d stop seeing you just because the movies ended, then you’re stupider than I thought.”

“Hey,” you whined, “Scarlet told me you loved how smart I was.”

“Did she now?” He seemed distracted, and when you looked up at him all of his attention seemed to be on your lips. You gulped, leaning closer to him, inviting him to kiss you. And kiss you he did, starting off a pretty darn good relationship between the two of you.

“[Who was your favourite character in the show, apart from Ygritte?] It was never myself! No, my favourite character of all time has to be Joffrey played by Jack Gleeson. [Controversial…] Yes, yes, don’t you think he’s amazing though? I think everyone comes away loving to hate him, and I just adored every single scene that he was in because he was just so compelling.”

So, 12 Angry Men is probably one of my all time favourite movies, I recently watched it and although I dislike many adaptations of old Hollywood movies, I think I’d love to see this cast with the right director take on this film.

…Thus, the full cast of the Monster!AU is born!!
And to think all this branched off from one doodle. orz

Costume design was very tricky and hard and time consuming, but it was very very fun! I had lots of fun drawing different kinds of clothes, cried about capes and collars and a bunch of other things, but it was a very rewarding experience for my slowly growing art skills.

My personal favourite design still has to be Nagisa though. I drew him first and I think his design looks best/is most original of them all! *V*

Mark Brendanawicz: “Honestly, Leslie, it’s going to be a long uphill battle. You are going to be super-annoyed with all the people who want you to fail. There is a sea of red tape, endless road blocks. So, yeah, I don’t know. I don’t know”

Leslie Knope: “Screw it. I’m gonna try to do it anyway”

Parks and Recreation, 7 Seasons, 125 episodes (2009-2015)

In the spring of 2009 Parks and Recreation aired its short first season. I remember watching those episodes as they aired, I’m not going to pretend that the show was perfect in its early days or that I somehow knew it would become the series it did but I certainly saw potential. There was enough in those six episodes to make me continue with the show when it returned in September 2009 for its second season.

By the Spring of 2010 I was officially head over heels in love with Leslie Knope and the characters of Pawnee. I remember at some point calling Parks and Recreation the best comedy currently airing and being met by disbelief, what about Community, or 30 Rock, or The Office? Well they were all great shows but something about Parks and Recreation just worked for me on every level. Parks and Recreation has a gigantic heart and it unashamedly shows that warmth and love episode after episode. 

The fact that its ending this week for good is truly a loss to TV. It is fair to say Parks and Recreation is not only one of my favourite comedies of all time but one of my favourite shows of any genre and any year. That the show has had a near perfect final season is just a great ending to a series that fought to stay on air for 125 episodes and 7 seasons in a TV climate where new comedies are cancelled before they even get a chance to shine. 

So here are 15 of my favourite episodes, though I could easily list more. 

+ Hunting Trip (S2 Episode 10) - One of the early S2 episodes where everything clicked and it showed of the casts talents. 

 + Telethon (S2 Episode 22) - Leslie trying to keep going and fill air is fantastic. I definitely remember watching this episode and realising just how much I had fallen in love with the show. 

+ Flu Season (S3 Episode 2) - Leslie trying to fight flu, Chris not being able to cope, Ben realising just how special and crazy his future wife is. Hilarious episode, a stand out. 

+ Harvest Festival (S3 Episode 7) - Honestly there is going to be a lot of S3 episodes on my list because S3 is a perfect season of TV and nothing is more amazing than American Girl playing as Leslie’s plan to save the department succeeds. 

 + Andy and April’s Fancy Party (S3 Episode 9) - A crazy decision to bring April and Andy together in marriage after only a few episodes together, crazy but worked out to be a great choice. 

 + Li'l Sebastian (S3 Episode 16) - Conclusion to a terrific season and a tribute song for the ages. 

 + The Comeback Kid (S4 Episode 11) - The ice scene says it all. 

 + The Debate (S4 Episode 20) - Any episode in which Leslie makes a rousing speech is a good episode to me, this one happens to be great. 

+ Win, Lose, or Draw (S4 Episode 22) - Much like The Debate this episode sums up the importance of Leslie Knope so well. 

 + Two Parties (S5 Episode 10) - I absolutely adore the bachelor party plot with the male characters, hilarious and sweet and shows the bonds between the characters really well. 

+ Leslie and Ben (S5 Episode 14) - One of the many episodes which nearly became series finales, this may be my absolute favourite 

 + London (S6 Episodes 1 & 2) - There is a lot of love in this season opener, from Andy getting a new job, to Leslie sending Ron off to Scotland at the end. 

 + Ann and Chris (S6 Episode 13) - Saying goodbye to Ann and Chris was hard but in true Parks and Recreation style it was equally heartfelt and funny. 

 + Moving Up (S6 Episodes 21 + 22) - God damn this show can do finales so well, everything about Moving Up was a lot of fun but then the surprise time jump at the end was shocking and ended up giving the show a new energy in S7.

+ Leslie & Ron (S7 Episode 4) - I could list a whole bunch of S7 episodes, Donna & Joe, Ms. Ludgate-Dwyer Goes to Washington, Two Funerals and well let’s be honest the series finale is probably going to make my list but for episodes that have aired so far Leslie and Ron’s bottle episode was everything I love about the show. It gave us a emotional conclusion to a storyline we had only known for 3 previous episodes and yet it worked so well. The Leslie and Ron friendship has always been a delight to watch and seeing Ron so upset by the change around him gave Nick Offerman his best episode.

michifer thoughts at 03:00
  • omg nicknames ok
  • when they were tiny fledgelings they’d just call eachother mi (and lucifer would say it really possessively) and lu (and michael would actually whine it when he got really annoyed)
  • and then when they were a bit older and a bit sillier teasing each other and pushing eachother around playfully michael would get called ‘mikey’ and lucifer would get 'luci’
  • and then it gets to the point where they don’t even use eachother’s real names anymore and michael forgets that lucifer isn’t actually called luce and lucifer doesn’t even care that michael’s name isn’t micha
  • and michael probably refuses to shorten any of the other angel’s names because even though he loves all of them to pieces they’re still soldiers and they’re not meant to have nicknames
  • but then he always addresses his favourite brother as luce
  • until the fall
  • that’s when michael calls lucifer by his proper name for the first time in a few million years and casts him out of heaven
  • that’s when they both forget nicknames
  • michael forces himself to forget cuddling; to forget who luce was
  • and lucifer never thinks of his brother as micha again because micha wouldn’t destroy him, micha wouldn’t leave him, micha wouldn’t give up on him
  • but michael would
