first time i saw stars like this

1: sexuality headcanon

  • Straight. I mean I personally saw heavy stormpilot subtext in TFA, but that idea was shot down by Kathleen Kennedy (irrc), so?

2: otp

  • Finn x Rose.

3: brotp

  • Finn x Rose.

4: notp

  • Finn x Kylo Ren.

5: first headcanon that pops into my head

  • Atypical plasma blade/lighsaber user. Like once again, LF nixed the Finn-is-a-Jedi headcanon, but there were a lot of other groups in the Star Wars universe that used lightsaber-like-weapons.

6: favorite line from this character

  • “Can you unfix it?”

7: one way in which I relate to this character

  • His sense of morality and his willingness to do what’s right (while also admitting he’s scared/doesn’t want to do it sometimes, cuz that’s a really human reaction and people are complex like that).

8: thing that gives me second hand embarrassment about this character

  • The way he was written (and not written) in the TFA novelization. ADF did not do him justice at all.

9: cinnamon roll or problematic fave?

  • Problematic fave tbh (because apparently as someone who also likes Reylo I’m not allowed to like Finn, which is just so???)

The Character Meme

You have no idea what it means to see beautiful black people decked out in all regalia in a full on costume piece, where they’re not slaves, but are kings, princes, princesses and people of the court. I don’t care if it’s not a critically acclaimed series. If white people can have trashy dramas that go on for 15 seasons, then let POC, let black people have theirs.

As soon as I sat down to watch and saw Lucien Laviscount as Romeo make his way across the screen, a beautiful black prince in his gorgeous “fourteeth” or “fifteenth century” (because this show is all over the place with their costumes) attire, Medalion Rahimi as Princess Isabella looking like a QUEEN or Lashana Lynch and Ebonée Noel as Rosaline and Livia looking divine at the ball, I got a little misty eyed. I felt like a little girl when I watched Brandy’s Cinderella for the first time. Please, don’t take this away from me.

Queen Pony Head of the Pony Head Kingdom.

would pony head wear something like this?? i don’t know and i don’t even like pony head that much but i thought it’d be interesting to age her up since i never saw an aged up pony head

“If you go to Skellig at the right time of year, it’s just covered in puffins, and they’re the most adorable things in the world,” Johnson tells EW. “So when I was first scouting there, I saw these guys, and I was like, oh, these are part of the island. And so the Porgs are in that realm.

Driving Miss Daisy

Star Wars’s Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver dish on the epic franchise and beyond in V Magazine.

“I had no sense of what I was getting into. No sense of what was really going to happen,” confesses Daisy Ridley of her first-ever role as Rey in 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Currently, Ridley is on location in a remote forest a few hours outside of Montreal for Chaos Walking, a 2019 sci-fi release costarring Tom Holland. But it’s this December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the follow-up to The Force Awakens, that is shining a blinding light-saber-tinged spotlight on Ridley. The Force Awakens was the first movie since 1997’s Titanic to sell more than 100 million tickets in the U.S. 

It isn’t typical for a young actress’s breakthrough film to have the biggest domestic opening weekend in history, raking in $238 million, but Ridley isn’t all that typical herself. As the face of the nearly $10 billion franchise, Ridley has ushered in a new era of Star Wars. Following Carrie Fisher’s untimely passing last year, Ridley’s character, a fiercely independent heroine, serves as a particularly strong female voice in a galaxy far, far away. However, a far- flung galaxy isn’t Ridley’s only on-screen locale this season. 

In November, Ridley appears opposite Johnny Depp and an all-star cast in Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express. The suspenseful tale follows 13 passengers, played by the likes of Penélope Cruz, Judi Dench, and Willem Dafoe, stranded on an opulent passenger train with a murderer on the loose. Aside from blockbuster films, Ridley also produced and narrated the documentary The Eagle Huntress, which follows a teenage girl in the mountains of Mongolia as she becomes the first female eagle huntress in the sport’s 2,000-year history. 

Ahead of The Last Jedi’s release, Ridley catches up with her Star Wars costar (and “bestie”), Adam Driver. 


Daisy Ridley Hey Adam, it’s been so long.

Adam Driver Hey Daisy, how are you? When is the last time that I saw you?

DR Well, I don’t know because you don’t come to all the fun things that I go to. [laughs] Last July? It’s been like a year!

AD Oh, yeah, I guess. I’m much taller now.

DR How has your life changed? [laughs]

AD Oh, just in little ways. So, where are you now?

DR I’m in Canada, two hours outside of Montreal in these creepy woods. We feel like we’re going to be killed at any moment in this cabin. We’re shooting a film, Chaos Walking, with Doug Liman, Tom Holland, and Demián Bichir. It’s fucking cool.

AD Did you guys have time to meet each other before? Or did you just kind of jump right in?

DR I had met Tom Holland twice very briefly—for, like, 30 seconds—and I had met Doug Liman once and we spoke a bit, but it was very much feet first, it was super quick.

AD So, is it hard for you to meet people and just kind of go? Or do you prefer it?

DR [laughs] I mean, as we discovered, Adam, we became besties last year, but we had met some years before. It really takes me a while to relax with people. I don’t think I’m very good at meeting people: I feel awfully uncomfortable. So, I find meeting people very stressful. But it gets easier, and I think I’m getting better at being okay with that, you know?

AD Yeah, you always seemed very open, but I feel the same as you. When I meet people, I don’t know how to small talk very well, so it’s always like two back-and-forths of like, “Hey, how are you? How’s the weather?” And then five seconds later, I’m like, “So, what’s your relationship like with your mother?” It always goes really deep really quickly.

DR [laughs] I think you’re really good at it.

AD Oh, thank you. So, this is about Star Wars: If Rey was a color…I’m kidding.

DR No, oh my God. [laughs]

AD What were your initial conversations with J.J. [Abrams] about your character? Did you know the character’s name was Rey?

You wanna know why I think Padme is interpreted so differently by different people, or just completely ignored by most? I don’t think a lot of people want to reconcile with the fact that Padme is a smart, strong leader who can stay cool under pressure with the Padme that’s also so unapologetically romantic. They don’t want this to be the same person, because they just don’t think they go together. But Padme is. And a lot of women are. And you almost never see women be both in the media. They’re usually one or the other.

That’s why to some she’s the strong woman that George Lucas made completely out of character or she’s this weak, awful mother who didn’t stick around when her two children should have been able to rely on her, all because of a man. They don’t think that the 14-year-old girl who defeated the trade federation could also be the 27-year-old woman who had her heart completely and totally broken by her husband (though I don’t believe that was the only thing that broke her heart that day. The two things she had devoted her life to, The Republic and Anakin, had crashed and burned all in the same day, right in front of her eyes. That would take a toll on anybody.)

And, also, where did this concept of her making totally rational decisions all the time come about? She married a guy, like, 2 weeks after she saw him again for the first time in 10 years. Idk why people always take her actions in rots as out of character. She has a track record for not making totally smart decisions when it comes to Anakin.

I had CA: TWS playing in the background at work today, and something caught my attention that I have idly wondered about before, but this time, it was like a great big flashing sign. So much so that I had to go back and replay the scene.

Pierce: The timetable has moved. Our window is limited. Two targets, level six. He already cost me Zola. I want confirmed death in ten hours.

I saw that then I watched the scene on the bridge. Watch the Winter Soldier. He comes in for the attack, and the first person he takes out of the equation is Jasper Sitwell. AKA the man who let the Lumerian Star get captured by pirates. AKA the reason Fury got the intel and had his suspicions raised. AKA the reason that the timetable was moved. AKA the reason they lost Zola.

I always assumed it was Steve and Natasha he was coming after, but no. Steve is Level 8.

Just watch the way TWS attacks. He doesn’t go for Steve or Sam directly. He takes out Sitwell, the easy target, first then aims through the roof of the car at Natasha first. And when the car crashes, he doesn’t go after Steve.

Instead, he fires towards Natasha, and only misses because Steve pushes her out of the line of fire. The blast sends Steve hurtling over the ledge. You would think he would be a priority target after that, but TWS ignores him. Instead, he calmly stalks after Natasha like a predator.

The other HYDRA operatives are firing like mad, shooting at everything, but he just watches for Natasha. He doesn’t fire until he has her in his sites. He only fires three times when she’s still on the bridge, and each shot only just misses her. (Speaking of, I love that the only thing that makes him lose his cool and fire as wildly as the other HYDRA agents, is when she manages to land a hit on him. That’s the one time he doesn’t aim)

When he gets given the machinegun, he also doesn’t waste his ammunition once she’s out of range. He hops over the edge of the bridge and goes after her on foot. The only time he actually bothers himself with fighting Steve is when Steve attacks him.

Also, I think this whole scene really demonstrates the difference between the design of the Winter Soldier as a weapon and the way HYDRA have used him. HYDRA tends to be very much smash in and “KILL THEM ALL WITH FIRE!” style, whereas the Winter Soldier is very much carefully aimed and positioned. Just watch the way he moves when he’s hunting. Or even when he’s firing. He is absolute stillness and quiet, compared to the chaos and destruction of the HYDRA boys. He just walks into a scene, lifts his gun, fires, and just like that, is gone.

the universe whispers in my ear
“you deserve better than this bloodstained broken soul”
and I can only think about how wrong the stars are


for my heart would have warned me to run 
but instead it saw the good person burrowed inside the bruises
instead it saw the same shadows that drift over my skin 


and it dug itself, bloody and barely beating,
to replace the empty space in his chest 
the very first time he spoke my name like it was the start of his salvation 


so tell me, constellations, I see the good in him
and if the universe thinks me so good 
what does that say about just how brightly he burns


so when his hands touch me with a gentleness he doesn’t grant himself
when he looks at me with his knuckles red and raw
I know that violence doesn’t equal damned 


and the universe whispers “darling, you can’t save him”
oh, the fates tangle their threads but this time they are so mistaken 
and I can only bring myself to swear “watch me do it anyway”

You were excited for your boyfriend, Tom, who just won the BAFTA Rising Star award. You recalled the long days of just sitting at a computer for a few hours to vote for him over and over. He wanted this award so badly. You couldn’t help but smile as he accepted his award on stage. You looked over to your right and saw his mom beaming with joy as she admired her son from afar.

You knew that at the end of the night there was going to be a lot of press interviews and the after party. However, after parties weren’t your thing and you knew that Tom’s mom and Harrison would be there to watch out for him as he would drink the night away. When Tom was done with the press interviews, he returned to his seat next to you with his award. You immediately kissed him on his lips and congratulated him on his win. He passed the award to you and you looked at it with his name freshly engraved at the bottom.

anonymous asked:

Does the book mention anything about Star's feelings or any Starco moment?

The book is mostly ship tease, except for some bits, even more since, after all, it’s set before the season 2 finale, so everything said in it regarding relationships would have been outdated. 

There’s this bit from a letter from Marco to Star (not after the season 2 finale, don’t worry)

And this horribly painful bits. Star being heartbroken is Starco, right?

And, more importantly, Star interviews Jackie on Marco’s behalf, asking things about what she things about him, and some of the answers are veeery similar to Star and Marco’s current situation as well. Coincidence? I think not, since the writers are shipping demons, and since the central theme of Sleepover was “changing feelings”:

NOTE: this interview clearly takes place after Sleepover, but before Bon Bon The Birthday Clown

Star: Tell me about your relationship with Marco Diaz
Jackie: My relationship with Marco is really confusing, I guess. I mean, if I really think about it, I’ve always kinda known that maybe Marco like me… as more than a friend. […] but I think because I really value him as a friend and didn’t want to ruin our friendship, I kinda ignored the signs. Plus, cute guy from skate camp last summer, ya know?

Star: Do you like Marco Diaz as more than a friend?
Jackie: Not until we were at your sleepover party […] and when it asked Marco who he had a crush on… well, he said me, which totally blew my mind… but not really… And for the first time, I really looked at him, ya know? Like totally sared him in the eyes and saw down deep into his soul […] And he really, really like me. Like, for real. And the cute guy from skate camp was only a friend, because nothing happened between us, so I had nothing to feel bad about in discovering that maybe, I kinda like Marco, too.

Wow I guess my feelings for Marco aren’t as confusing as I thought they were. I mean I definitely have a crush on him now, too.


So a situation strikingly similar to the one Marco is living right now, after Star’s confession. With the huge difference of the bolded part in Jackie’s answer. Because something did happen between Marco and Jackie, he’s currently dating, so feelings can’t and shouldn’t change that easily, in his case.

I was just watching star trek the motion picture for the first time ever (I liked it! it was slow but interesting! totally saw the ~~twist~~ coming from lightyears away but that was alright!), and you know how there’s this scene where they have the different enterprise evolutions drawings in the background: 

And I noticed this one in particular: 

This is the USS-Enterprise XCV-330, for those of you interested. 

So I thought “huh, that looks familiar, actually”. And it is, because quite recently NASA unveiled concept art for their first ever warp-capable ship (once they figure out how to do warp safely), and it looks like this: 

It’s called the IXS Enterprise. 

NASA once again confirmed for being giant nerds. 

I’ve heard lots of people say that Karl Urban’s portrayal of Bones is exaggerated. That AOS Bones is too angry and too weary of everything. Yeah…. and?! That’s Bones. In AOS we meet Bones directly after his divorce. He’s going into the academy then into space to live and work for the next 5 years and he’s not giggly like we sometimes saw Bones in TOS. With time he’ll begin to calm down, not towards Spock, but he’ll become a grumpy old man/sweet baby we know him from TOS but this is a younger Bones. He’s going through a lot. Karl’s portrayal, even in the first AOS movie, was the closest to the original character in the whole movie. Karl does a great job. Plus I love an angry Bones.

“The first time I saw him was at the video auditions for Star Wars and I knew he was going to be a star – someone on the order of Bogart and Tracy. I mean, you look at Harrison and you listen, he looks like he’s carrying a gun, even if he isn’t. I think he has qualities that disappeared into the pioneer West. You know that saying, ‘An actress is a little bit more than a woman; an actor is a little bit less than a man’? Well, that’s except if it’s Harrison Ford. He’s this incredibly attractive male animal, in every sense of the word. This carpenter stud.” – Carrie Fisher, Vanity Fair, August 1990

Barry Allen. Fastest man alive. Iris’ soulmate. And your crush.


With everything going on you began to realize exactly how much Barry cared for Iris, and how little he cared for you. Everything she did he smiled at, and didn’t give you a second glance. But you were used to it at this point.


You had been part of the team since the beginning, working with Cisco and Caitlin even before the meta humans. Hearing endlessly about Iris, and how amazing she was. It seemed there wasn’t a time when you weren’t comparing yourself to her.


In everyone’s eyes she was perfect, and you just messed everything up.
Once you found out that Savitar was a time remnant of Barry your heart sunk. Sometime in the future Barry kills the one thing he loved most in the world, all for power.


Savitar always looked at you with pitiful glances, almost like he was seeing you for the first time in a long time.


He got in the cortex one day while you were alone, you had thought it was just Barry.

“Oh! Hey Bar. I wasn’t expecting you to be in today. Thought you were with Cisco till tomorrow,” you said taking a quick glance up then returning your gaze to the computer in front of you.


“Just thought I would stop in. Make sure you were okay,” Barry spoke from a little distance away.


“How swee-” you looked up and saw Savitar starring at you, the scarring on his face showing who he truly was.


“Hi (y/n). Miss me?”


“What do you want? Why are you here?” you ask standing up reaching for your phone but Savitar grabbed it before you could.


“Wouldn’t want you to call Barry or Cisco,” he chuckled, “Besides, I just want to talk.”
“About?”


“Love and hate, they’re so close. How can you love someone, and then come to hate them?”


“I don’t know, break their heart?”


“You love Barry, is that right?”


“Ho-how would you know that?”



“Well, you see, in the future, where Iris is gone, and Barry’s lost his mind, you’re dead.”


“What?”


“You kill yourself because you knew that you couldn’t live up to Iris. Wrote a note and everything.”


You had to sit down to keep yourself from falling over.


“How?”


“Overdose, on pain meds and sleeping pills,” Savitar looked down at the ground.
Clamping a hand over your mouth you let a tear roll down your face.


“But we can change that.”


“What do you mean?”


“Come with me (y/n). You won’t have to die. The team won’t have to think you betrayed them, and I’ll be happy. I realized after you were dead that I couldn’t be without you.”


“But, Iris would die.”


“This is true.”


“If we find a way to stop you, and Iris doesn’t die. Then I live.”


“Not really. Do you really think you would want to be here if Iris lives? Barry will love her even more, they’ll get married, have some kids, and where will you be? Alone, depressed, and without someone who cares for you.”


“And you could make me happy?”


“I could make you so much more than that,” he smiled, “I could make you a queen.”


“And what if I say no to all of this?”


“Then I’ll kidnap you. Can’t die if I don’t let you.”


You took a step back, he would kidnap you?


“I’d rather die trying to save the woman who everyone loves than go with the man everyone hates.”


“Funny, you were the only one who didn’t push me, a time remenant away. And now you’re saying everyone hates me?”


“Bar- Savi- whatever you go by right now. I will go with you, but only on one agreement. Iris lives.”


“If Iris doesn’t die then I’m not created sweet heart.”


“Barry has other time remnants from the past. Trust me. But she has to live.”
“You have yourself a deal (y/n).”


As long as Barry is happy with the woman he loves, everything was going to okay.


Here goes nothing.
