finally made something out of the scene;)

Hermione’s screams echoed off the walls upstairs, Ron was half sobbing as he pounded the walls with his fists…

The 1 Thing Your Scenes MUST HAVE

Sully is a good representation of how I want people to react when enthralled by a story I’ve written:

But more often than not, I get a reaction more like this:

Or at least, I did. I couldn’t understand why my writing produced these less-than-stellar responses. I had meticulously worded every sentence. I’d made sure there were exciting parts. I had parceled out backstory, setting, and exposition so the reader could understand what the heck was going on. So why did eyes glaze over while reading my book? Why did MY eyes glaze over while reading my own work? 

The problem, I finally found out, was that my scenes didn’t turn. 

I was cramming all that exposition in right out of the gate, so the reader knew absolutely everything … which meant there wasn’t anything to find out. The scenes were just tiny chronicles where the main character set out to do something and accomplished it with flying colors. Nothing ever happened that surprised him. And consequently, nothing ever happened to surprise the reader.  

I wasn’t withholding information, and revealing it methodically. 

I wasn’t letting the story spin in new directions. It was always chugging along the straightforward track where I’d dropped my reader.

I wasn’t letting my scenes TURN.

To illustrate what I mean, here’s an example of a great scene with a great turn from a wonderful movie: Beauty and the Beast

*Opening music that makes me want to cry from how beautiful it is*

Beat 1:

“Once upon a time, in a faraway land a young prince lived in a shining castle…” (Action: Apparently the world takes action to make sure this prince lives a cushy existence.)

“Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind.” (Reaction: And he acts like a brat anyway.)

Beat 2:

“But then, one winter’s night, and old beggar woman came to the castle and offered a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold.” (Action)

“Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift, and turned the old woman away.” (Reaction)

Beat 3:

“But she warned him, not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within.” (Action)

“And when he dismissed her again …” (Reaction)

Beat 4:

“The old woman’s ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress.” (Action)

“The prince tried to apologize …” (Reaction) 


Beat 5:

“But it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart. And as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast and placed a powerful spell on the castle, and all who lived there.” (Action)

“Ashamed of his monstrous form, the beast concealed himself inside his castle, with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world.” (Reaction)

Beat 6:

“The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, that would bloom until his 21st year. If he could learn to love another, and earn their love in return, by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time.” (Action)

“As the years passed, he fell into despair, and lost all hope.”  (Reaction)

“For who could ever learn to love a beast?”

Turn: The 6th beat is the turn. The story has spun in a new direction, the direction the WHOLE STORY will motor towards. 

Revelation: There’s the big one of the scene turn, but I love how every action and reaction in this prologue feels like a revelation. Each one feels like it could be a scene on it’s own, but it’s told in a just few words, with beautiful imagery. There’s no fluff in this, nothing unnecessary, everything is perfectly needed. (Sorry, I just really love this opening. I can remember sitting in my little wicker rocking chair when I was four watching this in awe. This movie is one of the reasons I’m story obsessed.)

NOW let’s remove all curiosity and surprise from this scene. 

We’ll take away the atmosphere of “all is not as it seems”, the “seeking and learning significant information” feeling, the sense that we’re climbing to something significant. Instead of withholding and revealing snippets of information, after gradual beat-by-beat escalation of curiosity, we’ll dump all information right away. We’ll take this beautiful scene, and make it distinctly not a scene by removing all traces of a turn.

So! The purpose of this “section” of story is to communicate necessary information. What info? The guy used to be a terrible prince. Someone cursed him to be a beast. His castle and the people who live there are also cursed. He’s got a rose that will bloom until he’s 21. He’s supposed to fall in love with someone and get that person to love him back.  Or he’s going to be a beast forevermore. So, let’s give it a whirl.

Let’s say it opens up on Lumiere and the Beast. They’re just hanging out in the West Wing, the Beast watching the rose sparkle, Lumiere extinguishing and reigniting his left candle/hand for something to do.

LUMIERE: “So Master, it’s been years since you were turned into a beast and the castle staff was turned into objects.”

BEAST: “Yup.”

L: “I wish you hadn’t have upset that enchantress, and been a bit kinder.”

B: “Me too. Don’t know how.”

L: “Now our only hope to return to our human forms, is if you fall in love and get that person to fall in love with you.”

B: *Noncommittal grunt*

L: “Better happen soon, before that last petal on the magical rose falls. When you turn 21, it’s going to fall. And if you haven’t learned to love by then, well, we’re stuck.”

B: “I’m aware." 

L: "Yup.”

B: “Yup.”

Well, that was extraordinarily awful. 

So what about these scenes is different? (Besides one being a work of art and the other being agony in text form.) 

– One withholds information and reveals it slowly, turning the story at the end. 

– One is just an info dump. 

So how can a turn be accomplished?  There are four types of turns: 

– Surprise

– Amplified Curiosity 

– New Insight

– Spin in New Direction

A SURPRISE turn is the difference between what the character expects and what actually happens, surprising them, surprising the reader/audience that is enthralled by your story. A CURIOSITY turn is when a new mystery is presented to the reader, increasing their drive to find out what happens next. An INSIGHT one is when a scene ends by solving a mystery, answering a question that the audience has been wondering about. And a SPIN is just that, a turn that jolts the story into a new unexpected direction.

And how do they work in a scene? 

The turn happens at the end. It’s the point of the scene. Everything’s leading to it. Think of it as the period punctuation mark on the end of the sentence that is your scene. But really your reader is anticipating that turn throughout the scene.
It’s this anticipation and “gradual illumination” that’s crucial to a story turn. This is the wonderful curious feeling that keeps us turning pages. That sense that “all is not as it seems, and if I keep reading I’ll find out the truth.” which is so intoxicating. And this is accomplished with beats, the exchanges of action and reaction, each acting like a escalation on a roller coaster, each increasing anticipation for the drop. 

Turns and revelation anticipation are rather magical when you think about it. They really are (as Robert McKee says) the substance of story. (Or they’re magical to me. I said I was obsessed. Blame this movie!) 

Now I’m going to go watch Beauty and the Beast again.

more qrow branwen shit

Okay so I’ve been thinking about volume 4 a lot since it ended and I still have several questions about it, particularly these moments.

I watched these scenes over and over again in an attempt to figure it out. A thought finally hit me. The two recurring factors in these scenes are Qrow being poisoned by Tyrian, and Jaune and/or Ruby being there. So, I took it upon myself to do a little bit of research on the symptoms of scorpion stings.

It was made very clear to me that a scorpion’s venom is highly likely to cause hallucinations that can last until the wound is treated. I thought some more, and… something popped into my brain.

What if Tyrian’s poison caused Qrow to hallucinate, and he keeps seeing Jaune and Ruby as Tai and Summer? (bonus if he thinks Ren is Raven bc hair) It would make sense in the scene where he says “Tai she’s not coming” because he’s facing Jaune when he says it, so he could’ve stolen a glance at him and hallucinated. In the scene where he grabs Jaune’s hand, he may have been hallucinating about a past battle with team STRQ and urging “Tai” to be careful. And in the scene with Ruby, he may have been imagining a time when he was injured and “Summer” was there to comfort him. Just putting it out there…

Hey guys! Look at the lovely artwork @hansaera-art did for me!! I knew I wanted to commission her for something quite some time ago and it was hard to decide exactly what I wanted but I finally settled on this scene from Reality Dreaming: Chapter 41 - Tea. I hope you guys like it as much as I do!!

During the final battle against the Galra
  • Lance: (shooting Galra soldiers) will you marry me?
  • Keith: I don't think now's the best time.
  • Lance: now may be the only time! I love you. I've made my choice, what's yours?
  • Keith: (over intercom) Allura, marry us!
  • Allura: I'm a little busy at the moment!
  • Hunk: seriously, guys?
  • Allura: *sighs* dearly beloved, we be gathered here today...
  • Shiro: skip that, say your vows!
  • Lance: Keith Kogane, do you take me to be your husband?
  • Keith: I do. Lance McClain, do you take me to be your husband, in sickness and in health, with health being less likely?
  • Lance: I do.
  • Allura: as princess of Altea I now pronounce you...
  • (fighting sounds)
  • Allura: you may kiss...
  • (more fighting sounds)
  • Allura, Shiro, Pidge, Hunk and Coran: JUST KISS!
Behind The Scenes 2 (12/16)

Author’s note: This part starts off back to Y/n’s POV and it is from her POV after she leaves the room. For me this was one of my favorite parts to write. Idk why its was, but it was just nice to finally reveal something about Jimin. I reallu hope you all like this part and sorry for any errors.

Genre: Angst-ish (Jimin)

Word count: 2688

Summary: You finally find out why Jimin hates you.

Warnings: a bit of verbal abuse

Other parts: HERE

This GIF is mine. I made it based off of this scenario series.


You stepped out of the room and looked down the dark hallway to see which room you could possibly go in. The lights coming from under the doors let you know who was still awake. Besides, your own door, the only other doors with the lights on were V’s room and Jhope’s room.

“Hobi is awake?!? I should go with him!” you thought. You made your way to Jhope’s door and lightly knocked.

“What?” you heard through the door.

“It’s y/n.” you said.

“Y/n?” Footsteps made their way to the door and soon Jhope was staring down at you with drowsy yet shocked eyes. “Y/n! What are you doing out of your room?” he whispered, pulling you into his room to hide you. He looked back to Rap monster’s room before closing his door.

“Don’t’ worry, the manager is talking with Jimin and he said that Namjoon wanted me to be in a different room while they talked.” You said casually as you made your way to his bed.

“The manager is here?”

“Yeah, he is talking to Jimin about something… Why do you look so worried?”

“Uh… its nothing. Uh, I’m just… nervous! … What if um he’s… getting after Jimin about something and he has to talk to the rest of us too.”

“Well he didn’t exactly look upset if that makes you feel better.”

“… That makes me feel worse…” he mumbled under his breath.

“So what are you doing?” you had already set yourself on one side of his bed.

Jhope made his way to his usual side and lay down next to you. “Nothing, just texting.” He yawned

“Is that why you haven’t taken anything to make you sleep?”

“Exactly!” he smiled. His phone buzzed and he averted his attention to it immediately.

“So who are you texting?”

“A few girls, but right now the one I’m texting is the one that is most likely to do what we need her to do.” His eyes still on his phone.

“What’s her name?”

“Um, wait… Her name? I think it’s um… Mei-hui. Why?’

“Just curious… Are you ready for the tour?”

“The real question here is, are you ready for the tour?!” He asked turning to you dramatically, but his attention soon went back to his phone.

You rolled your eyes, but you still gave him an answer. “No, not even close. Like yeah I have new clothes, but I don’t even have stupid luggage! I don’t even know what to expect from the tour either. I’m just scared about it in general. So, not ready at all.”

“You know I have some old luggage that you could use. You should have told me sooner. You were worrying about that for nothing. About the other stuff… Just stick by me and Yoongi and everything will be okay. Listen to your hope.” He smiled.

For the next few minutes, you and Jhope talked a bit while he was sometimes distracted by his phone. But soon, you noticed that he was getting sleepier and sleepier. It didn’t surprise you when he said, “I’m sorry y/n, I know you barely got here, but I’m too tired. You can stay if you want though.”

“Don’t worry my horse, I’ll let you sleep. Goodnight.” You got up from the bed and turned off the light before leaving his room.

“Goodnight.”

You wanted to go to Suga’s room, but a loud thud stopped you. You looked around to see if someone was behind you, but no one was there. Suddenly, you heard a loud yet muffled voice coming from your room. “Don’t tell me they are fighting!” You thought to yourself. you ran to your door to try and see what was going on, to see if Jimin was getting hurt.

“Jimin?? What’s going on in there?” You ran to your door and busted in.

What you expected to see was Jimin and the manager in some type of fist fight, but what you walked in on was just a big surprise. You found the manager all over Jimin. His hands were moving to unbuckle Jimin’s pants while his mouth was on Jimin’s.

“Y/n!” Jimin shouted as he pushed the manager off him.

The manager was just as surprised to see you. “Shit!” was the only response before he pushed past you and left the dorm.

“Did- He- You- “ It was hard for you to wrap your mind around what you just saw. You didn’t think Jimin and the manager were in any type of relationship.

Jimin quickly pulled you in and slammed the door shut. “You fucking bitch! Why the fuck did you come back?!?”

“It’s just- I- I heard- I thought-“

“You better not fucking dare tell anyone you sneaky whore!”

“I- I-“

“If you speak a fucking word about this I am going to release that video of you and Jungkook myself! I’m going to spread it all over the internet and say that Jungkook was actually someone else and everyone will think you cheated on him. I’ll get everyone to actually fucking hate you!” He continued to yell at you. The more upset he got, the closer he moved towards you. It wasn’t long before he had you pinned against the wall. He was just shouting insults and threats non-stop.

You couldn’t take it anymore. The only reason you even came back was because you thought they were fighting. You were only trying to look out for him, you thought he might have been getting hurt or something. You couldn’t handle his screaming. You couldn’t take another insult, not after all these months. Anger, fear and frustration were boiling inside you and you couldn’t keep it in anymore.

You slapped him. You gathered every bit of anger, fear and pain you felt towards him and you slapped him across the face. He quickly stopped yelling and looked back at you in disbelief. Even you were surprised you actually did it.

“Fuck you!” you shouted. Saying those two words never felt so good. And you didn’t stop more from coming out of you. You began taking steps towards him. “Fuck you Jimin! I only fucking came back in here cuz I thought he was beating you up. Despite how much you infuriate me, I came back to try and save your ass, so fuck you!… And you know what?!? I’m so fucking tired of all your bullshit! You and I both know all the stuff you say about me is just a bunch of motherfucking bullshit! Fine! I admit that Jungkook and I fucked, but the was one time and it was months ago! I never slept with anyone else, I never did anything with anyone else! And I’ve never done anything to you to make you treat me this way, not a single thing! But no! You just can’t let go of that little detail about me. You’ve taken that one fact about me and intensified it. You took it and made a whole backstory about the “real me” and about my “real intentions”. You always call me stupid, but the real stupid one here is you! You’re so lost in your fucking delusional thoughts that you forgot somethings else about me… That I don’t want to fucking be here! I’m only here so I don’t get fucking murdered, so that my family and friends aren’t slaughtered! But tell me Jimin, despite all this, why do you hate me? I can’t understand why the fuck you fucking hate me! Explain to me! Explain it to me now!” By now you had him pinned against his bed.

He was glaring back at you, but it wasn’t out of hate this time. He stayed quiet for a moment as he seemed to take in your words. “…Because… Every moment that you are with Jungkook, you are experiencing the moments I only wish that I could call mine.” His voice was soft but controlled. You could feel the strength behind his words. “Do you think I like living this way?!” you noticed the anger spark in his eyes. “Do you?!? Working day in and day out, not having a chance to live a normal life, not even a normal idol life. I knew what I was getting into when I was becoming an idol, but not this shit that Namjoon is putting me through. What you walked in on isn’t what you think it is. Do you think I actually like getting fucked by the manager, getting fucked by a man I find repulsive?!? At least once a week I am forced to be with him, to be with a man whose touch makes my skin boil! So much as a touch of his finger and I just want to rip my skin off! Why?!? Why do I do it?!? So my family doesn’t turn their backs on me! So that this world doesn’t turn its back on me!… When that isn’t bad enough, I have you here. Jungkook has always had different girls, but I knew they were just some girl, someone he had no interest in seeing again… But then you came along and for some unknown fucking reason he was different with you. He took you on a date and not once, but twice he invited you into our home. Each time I was reminded of the real reason you were over and it killed me. It killed me to know what he wanted to do to you, to see the way he looked at you, the way he is never going to look at me…” His anger was back and he was slowly taking steps back at you. “Then you started working for Namjoon! You were in my face every fucking day. A constant reminder of a night with Jungkook. To me, a look at you is like a stab in the chest. Now! Now, I’m sharing my fucking room with you! I had to give up my one bit of personal space for you! My only space where I am able to get away from everything! Let’s not forget the fact that I have to deal with you and Jungkook as a fake couple! I have to see you two holding hands, kissing and hugging… Whether its fake or not, those are moments I will never have with him. He’s never going to look at me the way he does you! He’s never going to hold me the way he does you! He’s never going to love me the way he did you… So that’s why…”. The fierceness of his voice contradicted the tears threatening to fall from his eyes. His voice barely cracked, but the pain was apparent in his expression.

It was weird to see Jimin like this, almost broken. It felt like he was just barely hanging on by a single thread. You couldn’t help but feel confused. In your months of being stuck with them, you never saw this side of him. The weirdness only intensified when he broke down on the floor crying.

“Fuck! I broke him! What do I do?!?” you thought. Your eyes scattered around the room, taking notice of the door many times. “What if someone heard us??” You couldn’t help but panic.

You fell down next to him and tried to get him to stop crying. “Ssshhhh… Jimin… please stop crying…someone will hear you…”. It was stupid to think his crying would disturb anyone when the both if you were shouting just moments before, but it didn’t hit you to be quiet until then. “Jimin please… uh… Jimin…” You didn’t know what to say to ease the situation. He just continued to cry. “Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck what do I do?” you thought.

With much hesitancy, you placed a hand on his back. He didn’t push you away or pull away from you, if anything it seemed like your touch calmed him a tiny bit.

For what felt like a long time, you very very awkwardly patted Jimin’s back to calm him down. Eventually, you noticed that he stopped crying. He stayed hunched over the floor, his face hidden from you.

There was a long moment of silence before he sat up. He made sure to face away from you as he wiped his tears away. It was bad enough he broke down in front of you, he didn’t want to further humiliate himself.

You didn’t know what to ask him. You couldn’t see his face, so you weren’t able to read his vibe very well. “You okay?” you asked awkwardly

He scoffed at your stupid question, but he didn’t say anything. You didn’t say anything either

“Did all that really just happen? Do I say something? How mad is he now?” you were too lost in thought, you almost didn’t notice that he was slowly turning to face you.

The puffiness of his eyes were the first things that grabbed your attention, the second was his red runny nose. It was very much a sight you never thought you’d see, at least, not for this reason. You analyzed his features and his posture and you felt like you were staring at a completely different person.

“Do you like what you see?” His voice surprised you, but not as much as the question itself.

“No.” you answered blankly

“No? After all the shit I’ve put you through… You aren’t happy to see me this way?”

“Surprisingly… no”

He stared at you a bit. “Why- Why did you come back?”

“… I thought the manager was going to hurt you, that you guys were fighting. I didn’t want you to get hurt. I thought if I came in, he would stop.”

“I’ve done nothing but insult and threaten you, practically since the moment I laid my eyes on you… and you came to help me… Why? I still don’t get it.”

When he put it all that way, it was really odd. You hated Jimin almost as much as he hated you, but you actually came in for him. You didn’t even know why you did it. You always wanted some revenge on Jimin, to see him hurt the way you did. However, now that he was in front of you like this, you couldn’t help but feel bad for him. “I don’t know…”

He let out a small chuckle at your answer. “I guess that doesn’t really matter. The point is that you got him out…”. He looked down as he began fidgeting with his fingers. His hair was somehow looking much oiler and somewhat tangled. “Y/n?” he called out softly

“… Yeah?”

He lifted his head up again, making sure to move his hair out of his face as he made eye contact with you. He took a deep breath and with a cracked voice told you two words he was always forced to tell you. “… I’m sorry.”

For a second you didn’t take him seriously because he never really meant it.

“I’m sorry. This time I am truly sorry.” You noticed his tears coming back as guilt built up inside. “… Getting it all out… I realized I was taking everything out on you…” He paused a lot to keep his voice steady. “I know- I know that I was horrible to you- but did you think you could forgive me?… I don’t expect you to, but I just- want you to know that I won’t be like that with you anymore…”

“No!” How dare he ask you to just look past all he’s done to you. You’ve suffered months of verbal abuse from him and he thought “sorry” was going to make it all go away, that a simple “I promise” was going to make you magically trust him!

He nodded at your response, a few stray tears leaving his eyes.

“You made me feel like shit almost every damn day Jimin. That night, that first night I was locked in here, you told- No, you encouraged Jungkook to kill me! The other day you told me that you wished that I was killed that night! I don’t care what your reasons were, I can’t forgive you for that!” you said boldly.

The second he worked it out, the second he was out of her grasp, he was running. He ran so fast that he couldn’t feel his own legs, only the rapid, painful pounding of his heart. He could hear her screaming, telling him it was too late. It couldn’t be. He wouldn’t accept it. Not now. Not when they were finally …

“John!”

His voice sounded panicked even to his own ears, and he made a swift turn, calling his name again.

“Sherlock!”

His legs nearly gave out as relief rushed over him, and he sprinted towards John’s voice.

He was alive. He was alive.

Once the well came into view, Sherlock was already franticly working his heavy coat off his arms, carelessly leaving it on the grass as he approached the side. John was fighting to keep his head out of the water. For a brief second, Sherlock became aware of the rest of his surroundings again, and heard the familiar sound of sirens. Then John’s head disappeared.

Too late.

Without much of a thought, Sherlock dove right down. Hands curling tightly around whatever he could grasp, he kicked his feet franticly, bringing them back up. The both of them gasped out as they broke the surface, and Sherlock heard Greg’s voice, echoing around them.

“We’ve got a rope!”

“He’s chained,” Sherlock yelled back, his mind already working through his next action. A rock jutted out slightly from the wall. He was under the water before Greg could reply, and when the rope landed and John weakly grasped for it, Sherlock resurfaced, grabbing the rope while pulling John tight against him.

“He’s free, pull!”

Strong arms helped them up and over the edge, and Sherlock lost his grip on John as they tumbled onto the wet grass. He pulled himself up instantly though, coughing and shivering as he leaned over John, who was on his back, panting. 

“John, are you -”

The rest of his words were cut off by John’s mouth on his, and with a soft intake of breath through his nose, Sherlock allowed himself to hold him and kiss him back.

Attack of the Clones | Deleted Scene BTS | Padmé and C3PO

C-3PO: “You see, when Master Annie made me, he never quite found the time to give me any outer covering. It’s so humiliating.

Padmé: “Maybe we can do something about it.”

It’s such a pity this scene didn’t make it into the final cut of the movie because just like the rest of the AOTC deleted scenes it adds even more depth and meaning to the Anidala relationship and their connection to their children. Futhermore it shows how well thought-out the whole story was by George Lucas as he elaborated even the smallest detail regarding the Skywalker family legacy and the story continuity. 

Padmé: Let’s see, if we put this… here…”

C-3PO: “Ooooh! That tickles.”

Padmé: “You’ll have to be quiet, Threepio. Hold still, please.”

The whole moment is significant and epic on many different levels - 10 years ago Anakin built C3PO and now Padmé completes him. This basically makes the droid their mutual creation, their baby and it’s as if they made him as a gift for their children without actually knowing it; first serving their daughter, then their son and later them both, so in this way the parents will always be a part of their children’s lives.

Owen: “Well, Padmé, I think he should be yours from now on…I know that is what my Mom would want.”

Not only does Padmé complete C3PO in the same rundown workshop where her son cleans him 23 years later, Owen also gives the droid to Padmé not unlike the time he entrusts him to Luke (no doubt happy to finally get rid off that chatterbox); which also explicitly explains the reason for C3PO’s departure with Anakin and Padmé later in the movie. It’s a short but also an important and private moment between Padmé and Owen - uncle and foster father to her son, the man who loved him and protected him when she no longer could and brought him up into the good man, the good person he later becomes, in many ways so similar to his own father. There is also this little moment when Owen calls Shmi his ”mom” which accentuates the fact that he is indeed Anakin’s family and Padmé’s future brother-in-law which is something that kind of got lost or was barely implied in the original version of AOTC. 

So I just noticed something while I was on Google Images. I looked up the Clexa kiss because I wanted to draw it so I needed an image and I came across a lot of gifs. Firstly, the moment Lexa initiates the kiss (which we all saw on the show): 

BUT THEN

I found another version. Now I don’t know if that’s something that was leaked or whether it was shown when the actual kiss came out as an extra scene or something but I didn’t quite recognise it completely. 

In this one, Clarke isn’t as shocked to have Lexa kissing her and it’s clearly very different from the scene that actually made the final cut. What I want to know is: 
WHERE DID IT COME FROM?

ifellforfandoms  asked:

Anicaaa i need to talk to you about the new ep. it was so amazing and i wanted to hear your opinion! i think almost all of the mistakes that were made in the previous eps were sort of.. corrected, i feel like malec's relationship is healthy and adorable as ever. we got hugs and i love yous, that was a miracle and something that their relationship really needed, that last scene literally killed me inside and out. also i want climon to be over so badly, they're so extra. soooo thoughts?

Nitsa, I am SO sorry that this is so late.

But yes, I really really enjoyed the winter finale, too. Especially the Malec scene just fucking killed me lbr. It was so stunning and perfect and I am still not over it. I mean I didn’t know I needed them to say the l-word yet but woah… I really did apparently. That whole scene, the 2(!) hugs, clinging to each other, bodies pressed against each other and not letting go, Alec burying is face so deep into the crook of Magnus’ neck and the kiss. Jeez… Alec kissed him with such a force and I am…just dead. And the way Alec said “Magnus, I love you.” Gawd, I am still dying over that scene and the looks and little gestures and that their foreheads touched and gaahhh… I am just gonna fling myself into the sun. Matt and Harry absolutely killed it.

I mean seriously, as much as I absolutely love and adore that Malec scene, isn’t it kinda hilarious that out of all people Todd and Darren wrote that episode? I mean…what the hell? After the mess of 2x07 they gave us this??? I am not sure how I feel about this but I somehow… am more hopeful now for 2B and that they learned from their mistakes?

That aside, I also enjoyed watching my bb Alec finally showing off his badass killer moves. Also, finally my parabatai sons talking! Please, I need more of this in 2b! Them talking and fighting together, kthxbye.

Awesome news that they really did make it canon that Raphael is asexual. Did anything happen between him and Izzy? Don’t recall. lol Same with Climon. Can this just end? Like… yesterday? Seriously, I like brotp!Climon but this is just…. sorry I can’t look at it. It makes me uncomfortable and I also think about poor Simon and his poor heart. Not that I care much about Clace but really, give me Clace and end this. Then again, I fear how long we might have to suffer through this fucking love triangle from now on. UGH!!! Do not want!

What else? Right, Jimon. Like I said, happy for everyone who ships them. I see the kinda chemistry between them but I am pretty much indifferent. It’s a brotp for me at best so yeah….whatever. *shrug*

Clary was annoying as always. What else is new? Seriously, I really felt sympathetic for her in season 1 but in 2A she really gets on my nerves. She drags everyone into her mess, she knows it all best and acts like she does, the way she talks to Luke and especially her ordering around Magnus this ep? Like girl….can you not??? Or her treating Dot like that? Sorry, I am getting old but isn’t she like “your big sister”? Way to go. Or again, her behavior towards Magnus when he should go talk to Madzie. Tf??? But then she had one job to keep the sword safe and she messed up. Again. Seriously. I can’t with her anymore. She turned more and more into book!Clary and I hate this. Not that I was her biggest fan from the start but this? Nope, nope, nope.

But yeah, except for Clary and maybe some tiny issues (like the thing with Izzy’s phone—Raphael please?! lol and how she got there or how Raphael could escape) I highly enjoyed this ep and it kinda reconciled me with the mess of the last eps. I still haven’t forgotten about the great mess that is 2x07 or the way they treated Malec in general but it was overall a good ep. And Malec…. gosh, I am so not over that scene anytime soon. <3

This is my GIF. I made it based off of this scenario series.


You were in the middle of a deep sleep when you felt something repeatedly poking your face. You soon felt a tug on your hair, and then the poking started again. You opened your eyes to find Jinjin smiling at you

“Y/n!” Jinjin screamed. He practically jumped on top of you to give you a hug.

“Hi Jinjin! Finally, you’re here! I fell asleep waiting for you!” you told him, hugging him back.

You looked around and found V setting up the TV for video games and Jin sitting on the other couch looking over at you and Jinjin

“You were sleeping a lot! I tried to wake you up for a long time, but you kept snoring.” He proceeded to imitate your snore. The way he did it, it sounded more like a pig snorting. Then V began to laugh and join in on the snorting.

“Good thing I woke up! I must have been snoring so ugly!”, you said slightly embarrassed.

“Don’t worry y/n, you were snoring, but you sounded really cute.” Jin stated.

“You’re going to play with me right, y/n?” your attention was brought back to the small child.

“Of course I am!”

Jinjin began jumping out of joy and began listing all the activities you four would do together. Then he moved over to Jin while waiting for the TV to be set up.

He looked up at Jin, and then got really close to his face, studying him. “Daddy, you look different from the last time. Why?”

Jin let out a laugh. “How do I look different?”

“I don’t know, but you look different.”

“I was working today. They used make-up to turn me from normal daddy into idol daddy!”

“’Idol Daddy’?… Like… In the videos mommy shows me if you and the uncles?” he asked in amazement.

“Yup! I still have the make-up on, do you want to help me take it off?”

“Yeah!”

Jin got up and carried Jinjin with him to the bathroom so that they could wash his face.

“What time is it?” you asked V

“It’s just past 9. I’m surprised you’re here in the living room! You’re never in here. You’re usually with Yoongi or Hoseok.” V said

“Yeah. Well-“

“Finally they aren’t hogging you for once! It’ll be fun playing with you too. More people equals more fun!”

Jin soon returned. He was bared-faced. He came with shirt soaking wet, but he had the biggest smile on his face as he held his laughing child in his arms.

“I’m done! Let’s play!” V exclaimed.

For the next 2 hours, you four took turns playing video games. You guys mostly played Super Smash Bros. and Dance Dance Revolution.

At 11 Jungkook came out of his room and told you to take him to his date. You hoped the ride would be a quiet one, but sadly that wasn’t the case. Jungkook was thinking out loud again and thinking of all the possible places where he could fuck the chick he was about to meet. He was pretty excited because most of the places he was thinking about because they were mostly public spot and that “made things more intense.”

You wished you had Suga with you to save you from this painfully disturbing conversation. You had tried your best to stay silent and ignore him, but then Jungkook would poke at you to reply to him and talk to him.

You somehow made it to the river. No one was around at this time of night, especially on a week day. From where you parked you saw a girl standing alone in the open area, staring off towards the river.

Before getting out of the car Jungkook told you that he would secretly give you the “peace” signal so you would know when to drive off. You watched as Jungkook quietly walked up behind the girl. He brought his hands from behind her so he can cover her eyes, probably saying “guess who?”. The girl got excited and turned around. He picked her up and swung her around, so that she was facing the river again. It was at this point that he used one of his hands to give the signal. You quickly drove back to the dorm the second you saw the peace sign.

When you got back, you felt it was a good time to check on Suga and Jhope. The boys were too into the game to notice you walk over to the bedrooms. You went to Suga’s room first. You knocked lightly on the door and let yourself in. Suga sat at his desk, he didn’t turn around even though it was obvious he heard the door open

“Yoongi?” you called out softly

He stayed quiet, typing and clicking away.

You walked over to him, giving him the benefit of the doubt, assuming he didn’t hear you. You stood next to him. It was clear that he wasn’t wearing any earbuds, so he was definitely still ignoring you on purpose. You poked his shoulder, but he still didn’t acknowledge you. You felt so hurt that he was taking things this far.

You poked him again. “Yoongi. Can we please talk?”

He still did nothing,

“Can you just look at me so I can explain myself. Let me apologize.”

He continued to ignore you

You got really upset. He was being really immature at this point. You were trying to be the bigger person and admit that you were wrong, but he kept ignoring you.

You got frustrated and grabbed onto his shoulder and lightly shook him. “Yoongi! Please just fucking look at me! You were right, I was wrong! Just stop being like this with me!” you pleaded. He still ignored you, clicking away on his laptop.

You got really upset and ripped that portable mouse from his hand. “Yoongi! Stop being like this! Fucking talk to me!”

He didn’t turn to you. Instead he moved his hand over to the track pad on the laptop. You pulled his chair away from his desk and turned him so that he can face you. “Yoongi! Please. Stop shutting me out!” your voice began to shake and your throat stung.

He still didn’t acknowledge you. He maintained a straight face and swung himself back in front of the computer as if you didn’t exist.

“Yoongi…” your voice broke. Your vision became blurred from your tears threatening to fall.

You gave up and walked out of his room. You quickly walked over to Jhope’s room before the boys could notice you.

Jhope was already knocked out, you went over to check on him and moved him into a better position. As you were in Jhope’s room you couldn’t hold back your tears anymore. You left his room and escaped into the hallway bathroom. You made sure to turn on the water to cover up the sound of you crying. After you brought yourself together, you washed your face to hide the evidence that you were crying.

You went back into the living room with the rest of the guys. Jinjin didn’t seem tired at all. He was doing his best at the DDR game. He looked so cute as he played. He stared intensely at the screen, his posture ready for the next step. Despite all his concentration, he was always about half a beat off the whole round.

V was sitting next to him, waiting for his turn and Jin was standing next to the TV recording Jinjin as he played. After his round, Jinjin came over and sat next to you. He got you to play rock, paper, scissors and thumb war with him while you waited for your turn.

Playing with the guys made you feel a bit better. For a few moments you were able to get your mind off the guilt you felt.

Soon Jungkook called you to go pick him up. Before leaving you decide to check on the boys again. This time with Suga, you only poked your head in his room and didn’t say anything. He was still glued to his screen. Jhope was still fine, the same how you left him

When you picked Jungkook up, you could see that his date was already gone and he was waiting for you leaning against a tree and looking down at his phone. When he saw you he ran to the car. The whole ride back he was as annoying and disgusting as ever. He spent the ride bragging about his latest conquest. He was extremely descriptive about the things they did. Like before you did your best to block him out, but like before, he kept dragging you out to listen to all the crap he was spewing.

When you returned, you let him go up to the dorm first. You stayed behind in the car to just be alone and gather your thoughts. It was about 2 am at this point and you were starting to get tired. You were still really upset again because this ride back reminded you of how good of a friend Suga was to you. You began rethinking everything about you and Jin and about you and Suga and Jhope.

“They know him better than I do. They know what Jin can really be like. If they were both concerned about me being close to Jin, they must have had a good reason. I should have done what Yoongi said and should have kept my guard up. I did hear the argument Jin had with his ex. She did cover her face making it seem as though she was the one that got hit… he was rather aggressive with me when he caught me. He is always quick to get aggressive with the other members… but he doesn’t lay a finger on Jinjin…. And he hasn’t really been much of a threat to me, but his moods do change a lot and very quickly. That’s very creepy. Despite the whole moment of almost kissing, I don’t think I like Jin that way. He’s very handsome, he can be sweet, and he’s been a friend to me. He probably doesn’t even like me. It was just a moment for him too. I’m just really helpful, I’m just doing my job. Obviously, he’d be friends with me if him next to him almost 24/7. Uggggh I need to sleep. I just need to stop thinking.” You said to yourself.

You walked up to the dorm. The boys were still up. You could see Jin was starting to look tired, but V and Jinjin were still wide awake. They were all playing catch with a small ball. Jin was silently smiling as V and Jinjin rambled on about something.

Jinjin saw you and called you over to play with them. You planted yourself on the other side of the couch. After about 30 minutes you couldn’t stay awake anymore. It wasn’t until you excused yourself to get ready to go to bed that you realized that you didn’t know where you were going to sleep.

With Suga and Jhope made at you, they weren’t options. Rap monster, Jungkook and Jimin were definitely not options. You hated having to be in the same room with Jungkook and Jimin sometimes, and with Rap Monster, you didn’t consider yourself close to him. Even though you were closer to Jin and V, you felt weird about them. You figured you’d wait out the boys’ energy and wait until they went to bed so that you could sleep on the couch.

You changed and went back to the couch. You watched as they continued to play, but you soon dozed off. Not much later you felt someone wake you up.

“Y/n you should go to a bedroom to sleep. Don’t sleep here the boys are too loud.” Jin told you

“Um, where should I sleep?” you asked, half awake.

“Hmm. Well aren’t you always in Yoongi’s room?”

“Oh. He’s already asleep…” you lied.

“Oh really?… He usually can’t sleep without… you know.” Jin whispered. Looking over to make sure Jinjin didn’t hear him.

“Yeah, I’m surprised too.” You mumbled, rubbing your eyes to avoid eye contact.

“Maybe you can sleep in Tae’s room, he doesn’t seem tired at all.” He suggested. “Hey Tae, can Y/n sleep in your room tonight?” he asked turning to V.

V’s eyes opened wide. “What?!? No! My room!”, he jumped up and ran to the restroom and washed up to go to sleep.

“… Well then…” Jin began. “Maybe Jinjin is ready for bed too and you can sleep in here.” He called Jinjin over. “Jinjin, are you ready to go to sleep? Uncle Tae is already going to sleep and Y/n too.”

“No! I want to watch TV with you!”

“Jinjin, its already late and Y/n wants to sleep on the couch. We have to let her sleep.”

“But I want to watch TV. I’m not sleepy yet.”

“Jinjin its already late.”

“Please daddy” Jinjin pouted. “Y/n can sleep in your bed and we can watch TV. Please! Please! Please!” he begged

Jin turned over to you. “Are you okay with sleeping in my bed tonight? We’ll probably end up falling asleep in here again.”

“Um… Okay.” You got up and grabbed your stuff from the kitchen. You changed into your pajamas in the restroom. Before going to sleep you check on Suga and Jhope one last time with ninja stealth.

It was weird being in Jin’s room when you weren’t cleaning it. The idea of having to sleep in Jin’s bed felt even weirder. Unlike some of the other beds, Jin’s bed was in the center of the room. You were used to sleeping against the wall in your own bed because your bed was place in one corner of the room. You were a bit paranoid about falling off so you situated yourself in the center of the bed. “This bed isn’t as comfortable as Yoongi’s bed” you thought to yourself. However, the bed was comfortable enough to get you to fall asleep in a few moments.

Something I’ll always find interesting are the changes made to the Layton games between the first trailer and the final game. Most of the time, just minor scenes were changed (barring the vs Ace Attorney, since that got a whole re-vamp). But one that stood out to me was a scene from Azran Legacy. More specifically, when Layton followed after Descole in the Nest. Because it changed how Descole reacted to Layton completely.

Here in the trailer, Layton clearly caught him off guard and he went completely defensive. Clearly not expecting Layton to catch up, and, probably a good reason why it was changed, along with the glider, was because Layton came at Descole first. Descole only pulled out his sword to fend off being hit by a pipe here. Now, Descole continued to fight, pushing more afterwards, but this makes it seem like Layton had been angry, really. If he attacked first, not to mention he’d had to have gotten that pipe prepared beforehand. It wasn’t just something he pulled just then, Layton had it in his hand as he came. Though, at least from Descole’s reaction, it wasn’t a sneak attack. Descole heard him coming and was surprised, it’s very likely Layton said something as he came down. It would have painted Descole as more sympathetic than he already gets made to be in the game, but would also bring down some of Layton’s normal manner, so…

That might be why they changed it to this. Descole prepared to fight Layton off, and Layton pulling the pipe with him from the glider instead because he knew he’d have to fight Descole. First one, Descole is more confused to see Layton, possibly not even expecting to be followed after his reveal, and he might have gotten slightly hurt, knowing that the reason Layton attacked him was because he made himself into a villian. In the second, Descole is more resolved to keep Layton away. A ‘stay back, I will hurt you’ attitude to push Layton away from him, while Layton ignores it and tries to get through to him anyway. First is Descole not really wanting to fight, second is Layton more on the unwilling side.

Which, on a side note, would mean the glider was nothing more than a convenient excuse to give Layton the pipe he needs, else there would probably have been a puzzle on using the construction machines to safely make a way down instead.

Or maybe I’m looking too far into it. They did redo most of the Nest scenes, after all. This was just the one that had enough shown to get my attention.

Micheala gets treated like shit by the narrative repeatedly and im over it. 

Her engagement was half written and anti-climatic. We got one good scene out of the entire debacle the rest of it was an old lady talking to her like trash and Connor picking on her. 

Find out she’s never had an orgasm (which is actually something lots of women say, but she was teased and made uncomfortable about it)

Hooks up with someone just to find out he was using her to find information (say whatever you want, thats all it amounted to)

Hits on a guy and lol its a joke because he’s gay and Micheala is attracted to gay men????

Finally finds someone and theres chemistry but he might be screwing his sister?? Hooks up with him and he eventually calls her a whore and says he never wants to speak to her again. 

then she randomly hooks up with the show’s “ass” and even that was really just another big joke. 

That’s just romantic entanglements, I have not even touched the rest of the writing for Micheala

so…Julie Plec says Enzo is the love of Bonnie’s life

Really Plec????

Listen, I like Bonnie & Enzo but for fucks sake we didn’t get a lot of build up with them or even a lot of scenes. I mean at the end, yeah but how that history is being built no. We should have seen more build up and we all know that Bonnie & Damon are so in love with each other. I mean come on its SO OBVIOUS!!

Stefan says in finale that Damon made himself sleep for like 3 years because he was scared. Scared that he would fall out of love with Elena & do something reckless and crazy to lash out of that guilt. 

Okay well, who did Damon not say goodbye to? He said goodbye to his bro he loves but there is another person he loves very deeply that he rather save and see alive than his suppose love of his life. Someone that he didn’t even try to say goodbye to and if Stefan is right about Damon’s fear I wonder why he didn’t say goodbye to that person. Bonnie & Damon should be together and they are not wow I wonder why? Why is the female lead with obvious chemistry and beautiful, loving, respectful, trusting, relationship that has evolved into actually something great with the male lead are not together…why again?

Just I swear on everything! Plec just pisses me off! With Bonnie same SL every season of her dying or about to die, always in pain more than the other characters. Bonnie Bennet not really having real good LI for some reason when Caroline & Elena do and have watched them be so in love and fuck so many times lol. Just omfg…

Hodge. Was holding. Alec’s hand. During the tracking. In both of his. Gripping it tight!

Gosh, I love Hodge’s relationship with Alec on the show SO MUCH! He was so concerned for Alec, he tried to dissuade him from doing this, he tried to make Alec promise that Alec wouldn’t let his parabatai bond break, and I bet that not because of JACE, he didn’t want to see Alec hurt, and his “Alec…” when Alec said that Jace was dead to him. 

I’m so LOVING THIS! And I hope that we get a scene like the one in the books - where Hodge called Magnus to heal Alec - in the S1 finale. I would literally start making dolphin noises if Hodge was forced to knock Alec out or hurt him in a fight or something - but he made sure that Alec wasn’t hurt badly or that he would get help in time… GIMME THIS, PLEASE!

Beth Appreciation Week:: Day 3 :: Favourite Scene
Moonshine Shack


This was my favourite scene. It wasn’t because it was just Daryl and Beth, but because this was Beth at one of her most vulnerable states since 18 miles out. She was Raw here and her quote ‘If you don’t it kills you…here’ just expresses so much that I can’t even put it into words. The gesture of it just made me personally think about a lot of things and I think it made them all. It was such a human moment that we had been really lacking, something where they’ve finally got to have their walls down. There isn’t an immediate threat and they’re forced to deal with the fact that yes they are alone, but they still have to leave.


It gave him permission to let things go, but it also gave permission to the audience to let things go as well. It was like a confessional between them on that porch. There’s so much talk about this show having religious symbolism in this and this scene reminded me of a confessional. The fact that he was pretty much confessing up what he thought were the sins of his past and she just accepted it. There wasn’t any judgement, just an acceptance and the immediate reaction of you’re one of the good ones and you can be your own man. 

Don’t you think that’s beautiful?
