So, last night I rewatched The Way He Looks (Hoje Eu Quero Voltar Sozinho), and of the million and one reasons why everyone should watch this movie, here are a few:
This is Gabriel (left) and Leo (right)
It’s on netflix, which most of you probably have, so it’s accessible
How many queer stories are there that feature a protagonist with a disability? Not many, but this one does! Leo is blind, he’s the main character, and I feel they handled his disability well (this is coming from a non-disabled person, though, so feel free to disagree)
It’s a pretty stereotypical indie teen romance movie, but the queer aspect already makes it 100x more interesting
a realistic parent-child relationship, with bonus awesome grandma
there’s no “omg, am I gay???” freak out. In fact, both characters are pretty much 100% ok with being into each other, and they’re main worry is “i don’t know if they like me back, but i know i want to stay friends with them at least, what do i do??” with a tiny sprinkling of jealousy, cause, well, stereotypical teen romance
a very beautiful and loving girl-boy friendship with lots of casual, platonic intimacy
there’s nothing super angsty?? like, no death or super homophobic parents/classmates or having to hide that they’re queer. it’s honestly such a feel-good movie???
what homophobia there is, it comes as teasing and there are never any hints of anything turning violent, and in fact, at one point, when the bully character is teasing Gabriel and Leo for being boyfriends, Leo shows him that they are, in fact, real-life boyfriends, and the bully’s friends start teasing him for trying to make fun of them when they’re actually boyfriends
the girl best friend isn’t narratively pushed to the side when the new boy (love interest) comes in. In fact, her (Giovana) and Leo’s friendship is shown to be just as important as Leo and Gabriel’s relationship
everything works out and you’re left with a lovely, sweet, happy ending that’s honestly just so nice to see in a young queer romance???
I really love this movie, and there’s also a short-film!! on youtube that I recommend, too!

BTS reaction: taking care of their girlfriend when she’s sick
Hi! I’m really sick right now and I was wondering if you could do a bts reaction to their girlfriend being sick, like them taking care of her and stuff.
We all know how much Jin likes to take care of other people. So when you, his favorite person in the entire world, got sick he knew that he would do anything that he can so you can feel better.
He made you lay in bed for the entire day, turned on your favorite drama to watch and made you so much food that you thought you were never going to be able to eat it all.
“Jin-ah that’s too much food!”
“No it’s not! You’re sick. You need energy!”
When he first sees you, so sick that you’re not able to get out of bed, he would immediately turn from the tough, swaggy Suga, into the sweet and loving Yoongi. It would be kind of hard for him at first, because he was not really used to take care of anyone. But he was ready to do anything for you. And I mean ANYTHING! If you throw up on the floor, he would clean it up without saying a word. If you sneeze all over him, by an accident he would just wipe it off his face and reassure you that it’s totally okay. He would go out shopping for different kinds of medicines, teas and foods that would make you feel better, coming home with three giant bags full of stuff. And if you have a fever he won’t be able to sleep at night, constantly checking your temperature and giving you different kinds of cold medicines.
“Love, are you sure you’re okay? Do you need anything else?”
“No, oppa, I’m fine. Seriously, it’s just a cold…”
“It’s not JUST a cold! You actually look like you’re dying! Still gorgeous though.” He laughed winking.
Seeing you sick would make Hobi extremely sad. He loved you so much and seeing you in pain was actually kind of painful to him too.
He would try to make you feel better by telling you to lay down and relax, making you some tea and probably even attempting to cook something. Then he would try telling you different stories and jokes in hopes of entertaining you, so you would feel better.
“Tell me if you need anything, jagi. And I mean ANYTHING! Not just food and stuff, ANYTHING! Whatever you want, if you want me to dance for you, I will. If you want me to cuddle you, I will. If you want me to go out and get you a puppy…I’ll do that too. As long as it makes you happy, I’ll do it!”
Namjoon would want to help you so badly! But in his attempts to help he would just cause even more destruction. He would try to cook for you, completely destroying the kitchen in the process. He would try to buy you cold medicine, but would probably get the children’s one by an accident instead. He would try to clean up your room for you, so you wouldn’t have to do it yourself, but would probably break a few of your stuff while doing so.
He would keep trying to help, and keep causing more, and more destruction until you finally decide to tell him to stop and just come cuddle you instead.
“But I want to help you!”
“Baby, you helped enough. Just come cuddle me now, that’s going to make me feel a lot better.”
“Okay…”He sighed but then smiled.
Jimin would definitely panic. He would definitely think that it wasn’t just a cold but something way more serious. And he would probably decide to google the symptoms.
That was a bad idea. Two minutes later he would come back to you and say, completely serious:
“Jagi, I’m so sorry, but you might have cancer!”
“Jimin what the fuck!” You yelled.
“I googled the symptoms. Most of the results said it was an ordinary cold, but what if…it’s not!!!”
“Oh my god, Jimin! Baby, you had the exact same reaction last time when I was sick! I’m okay, I promise….”
“Okay then, [Y/N]. But don’t say that I didn’t warn you….”
You sighed and shook your head, annoyed.
Tae would believe that cuddles and laughs are the best kind of medicine. He would play your favorite movie and lay down next to you, cuddling you for hours, making funny faces at you here and there, trying to make you laugh.
Later he would go out and return with a giant bag of candy, and would keep cuddling you, the two of you chewing on candy, while watching another movie that he had picked.
“Tae, why did you buys so much candy?”
“I know you have a sweet tooth and you’re sick so you can eat as much candy as you want today!” He smiled.
Jungkook would be freaking out, the moment you realized you were sick! He have never taken care of anyone else before, so he would have no idea what to do. But being really nervous about it, he would just tell you to lie down while he thinks of something, before going in the other room and calling his hyungs for advice.
“Hyung, the love of my life, my sweet, sweet jagi is sick! What do I do? Please help! I’m freaking out!”
I walked home from work tonight. Thought of you. Every dog
was barking, all having a conversation I was not invited to, probably because
if I was I would only talk about you, and they’re sick of it.
My sister hates you, and when I say hate I mean she would
kill you given the opportunity. She’s not
alone you say when I tell you this, and I say it’s the one thing her and I have in common, and you laugh, and I stare.
I can’t say what you being happy does to me. I feel the sun within me like I swallowed
it, all of me warm.
Lily here’s the thing:
we need a better apartment! you call from the shower, which occasionally
turns off for no reason and won’t go on again until the toilet is flushed. James, here’s the thing: we need more money!
I call back. Being poor is a lot more romantic in the films. In reality it
is having an oven that takes thirty minutes to turn off and curling into one
another during winter, fingers purple.
I don’t mind being poor with you. And when I say I don’t mind
I mean I obviously mind but not as much when you are with me. I don’t mind a
lot of things when you are with me: flat tire, missed flight, my mother only
speaking to me when my father is asleep.
That time we had no electricity that week because we had to
pay our rates. Us, in the dark, holding candles you stole from Remus, playing
cards for hours but only Go Fish because it was the only game you knew. After
work when you got home at three and we ate crackers and made up episodes of Friends to entertain ourselves. Joey and
Chandler run away to Atlantis. Phoebe transforms into an armadillo and desperately
tries to gain admission into a zoo. Rachel gets arrested for stalking Queen Elizabeth.
Ross dies in a house fire. They all forget to go to his funeral. And us: rolling
on the floor, our laughter the only thing.
There are still things I dislike about you. You won’t take
buses because you think they’re dirty. When we fight and you laugh at me.
Leaving all the kitchen cabinets open so I bump into them. That I tell you
about why my father hates me but you won’t tell me why yours does.
(I think it’s because of me. I often forget that you should
be a lawyer right now, instead of in an apartment with me and an oven that takes
thirty minutes to turn off.)
Often we talk about what our lives will be like later. When
we have money. When we have time. You will buy a giant couch so Sirius will
stop bitching about how uncomfortable the floor is when he’s over. I want to
get a cat and name it ‘milk’ or ‘bumblebee’ or some other ridiculous thing, and
when I say this you stare and then kiss me senseless. I cannot believe you love me you say. All my breath deserts me. I cannot
believe I wouldn’t.
You work late nights, and I work afternoons, so in the
morning we eat cereal out of the box and sit in bed, talking about what kind of
dogs we’d be. I’m a beagle. You want to be a German Shepherd but in reality you’re
Scottish Terrier because you’re still a bit posh and also wear glasses. Scottish Terriers don’t wear glasses you
say. Yes, but they look like they should I
respond. You consider this, and then nod. You’re
right you agree. I take a handful of cornflakes and am so fucking glad that
I use your toothbrush sometimes when its dark and I can’t find
mine, and this is something I will never tell you, primarily because you’d
freak out about it. Another thing I can never say: you always buy too much
popcorn at the movies for two people to eat. I also can’t say the entire reason
I still have the purple sneakers from five years ago that no longer fit me is because
they were the shoes I was wearing when you told me you first told me you loved
me, and I did not look beautiful, so I knew you meant it.
In truth I could spend an infinite amount of hours talking
about you, and the things we do when we’re alone
(including but not limited to: playing scrabble, trying to
recreate that lift from Dirty Dancing, reading books without saying anything,
arguing about how long the commercial is and whether it’s worth switching the
channel, you kissing my neck, bumping into one another half asleep in the
kitchen, arguing about who’s turn it is to do the dishes, laughing about our
neighbours and how loud their sex is, discussing whether our sex is louder than
the neighbours, trying to make our sex louder than the neighbours, burning our
bills once we’ve paid them, getting drunk off cheap tequila and having a dance
off, lying in bed carding my hands through your hair, having a staring contest
over lunch, kissing each other on the mouth, kissing each other in other
But I won’t. because other people (and dogs) find it boring
when you talk about another person to much. I don’t mind. I have you. They don’t.
I can’t imagine how awful that is.
okay no seriously I fucking love this movie so much and they change Gaston in such an amazing way and give him such depth and he treats Le Fou so much better (who is so gay it’s beautiful) and Dan Stephens is so good as the Beast and Ewan McGregor as Lumiere and Emma was so freaking great as Belle and oh my god I JUST LOVE IT SO MUCH and can Luke Evans adopt me please thank you

Head canoning/au: what if stiles was bit instead of Scott? Or in addition? DOB playing accidental werewolf stiles. Does it cure his ADHD? Does he embrace it? If Scott still dates Allison, does that make the drama more interesting and less cliched, less Romeo and Juliet, more how can you choose her over me? Or what if Peter bites stiles later in first season, when he mentions it canonically to stiles. How does stiles take to being a were? How do you think Sterek would be affected?
Continued: I mean, don’t get me wrong, I looooove human stiles and wouldn’t change him, love that he’s sarcastic but fragile, love that he’s a spark, or whatever, but not bullet proof… But I think he would handle the wolf stuff so differently than Scott did…
Oh Stiles would have 1000% handled turning very differently than Scott did, and season one would have been a completely different show. I’m going to start off saying that I agree, I love human!Stiles (and also spark!Stiles) too much to ever really be into the idea of wolf!Stiles or him turning, but it would have been interesting to see how that would have played out.
I’m going to run with the idea of Stiles being turned instead of Scott in this ask, because him being bitten as well would be a whole different ramble.
First off, I think Stiles would have embraced the hell out of having superpowers. Scott enjoyed the benefits of being a wolf to get on the lacrosse team and win over Allison, but otherwise he was pretty desperate to be normal and ignore any elements of the supernatural going on in his life. Scott wanted a normal (well, popular sports star, but normal) life, but Stiles –– the geeky, World of Warcraft playing, superhero and sci fi movie loving geek that he is –– would have embraced the new wolf identity whole-heartedly. Remember, he was the one who actually figured out Scott was a werewolf (even jokingly) and helped him through learning control and connecting with his anchor. So I see werewolf!Stiles taking to be a wolf much faster than Scott did, if only because he would want to embrace it, want to learn as much as he could about it, want to be the best goddamn superhero werewolf he could be, because having superpowers is freaking awesome!
So I think that, while for Scott the journey was one of “ugh, why is this happening to me” with a touch of “cool I can get a girlfriend now”, toward accepting that this was a permanent part of his life, for Stiles the journey would have gone in somewhat the opposite direction: from wholeheartedly embracing this awesome gift to slowly realizing –– as bodies piled up and hunters appeared in the picture –– that it might not be all sunshine and superpowers after all. (But I honestly think he’d handle that better too. Stiles is used to adapting to hard times, is a realist bordering on a cynic, and when he realized it was time to get serious I think he would have been able to ground himself and grow up fast –– though not without some serious griping along the way.)
I think the arc of the season probably would have changed a lot too, with Stiles as the core character. Along with his own research, he probably would have gone to Derek for answers and struck up a relationship much earlier on, wanting to learn as much as possible about the world he was now a part of. The main reasons he kept more of a distance from Derek in canon were because he was A) following Scott’s lead, since Scott was the one this was most affecting, B) he was scared of Derek (and certain feelings Derek was bringing out in him) and C) he was jealous that Scott and Derek were in this werewolf club together and he wasn’t, so he kind of wanted to nudge Derek aside to hold onto Scott better. All of which would have been different if Stiles were the one at the center of all the werewolf issues, with his own werewolf strength to match Derek’s.
(And in fact, he did go to Derek for answers a bit even in canon, like the scene in the police car when Derek was arrested –– and in an especially bad mood, I mean don’t get a guy arrested for the murder of his sister and then decide it’s time to chat. Just… bad timing there, Stiles –– and I think that would have been much more the norm in a world where Stiles was the werewolf.)
Since Derek would see Stiles actually invested in what was happening, actually wanting to understand (even in his snarky and skeptical way), I think Derek would have felt a lot more settled and secure than he did throughout canon season one. Derek’s main goals that season were to protect the stupid teenagers, get the stupid teenagers to take this seriously, and to feel a little less alone after losing Laura, and Stiles actually coming to him, wanting to learn, would change so much of that and leave him a lot more settled.
Ok, what else… I do think being a wolf would have probably cured Stiles’ ADHD, since the bite cured Erica’s epilepsy. Or at least… held it at bay. There’s a possibility that being exposed to wolfsbane, or other things that stalled out his wolf healing, would cause a resurgence of symptoms the way it did with Erica. Which would make wolfsbane exposure even more dangerous for Stiles, because it could potentially make him weaker and make it harder for him to focus on how to escape the situation.
As for Scott… I can see this going one of either two ways. Scott was very woe is me and Scott-centric throughout season one, and I’ll say somewhat understandably. He was the one who got the bite, who had his life flipped upside-down, and so it makes sense that he would be thinking about his own drama over other people’s. I’m also going to suggest that Scott’s overwhelming obsession with Allison was partly due to his being a new wolf (stronger senses, stronger instincts) and her being his anchor (being hyper-focused on her settled him). So, while I think a lot of Scott’s behavior was just down to his general personality, it’s also possible that a human Scott would have just reacted a bit more… normally, to getting a girlfriend. It’s also possible that, considering Stiles would be the one who was in trouble, the one whose problems needed to be focused on, Scott would have stepped up and been more focused on supporting Stiles in general. It’s easy when you’ve got a broken thumb to go “oh I have a broken thumb, feel bad for me, I can’t focus on your problems right now friend, my thumb’s hurting.” But if your thumb’s perfectly fine and your friend’s is the one that’s broken, you might be there and focused and more inclined to put them first and help them out.
(And yes, I just compared being bitten by a werewolf to having a broken thumb. I have no idea why. I’m sleep deprived with too much coffee in my system; let’s move on.)
So yes, it’s totally possible that human!Scott would put more focus on a werewolf!Stiles than on Allison, even causing him to leave her once he finds out her family are werewolf hunters. (Because again, it’s easy to keep dating someone dangerous when they’re threatening you and the poor loner werewolf you just honestly don’t care about :/ but if they’re threatening your best friend, that might change your attitude a bit.)
Of course, it could go in the complete opposite direction as well. Since we know Scott just wanted a normal life, the fact that Stiles was suddenly so completely not normal might set a wedge between them, even unconsciously. If that happened early on, it would probably push Stiles closer to Derek, push Scott closer to Allison, and potentially even lead Scott to side with the hunters if Kate or Chris managed to convince him that the werewolves were the dangerous monsters who stole his best friend from him. (And honestly this would be such an interesting dynamic to play out –– Scott trying to do the right thing, convinced by his girlfriend’s family that werewolves were the wrong thing. Maybe even convinced that killing the Alpha or Derek would turn Stiles back to being human, and that he’d be saving him by doing so. Leading Stiles and Derek into a trap by pretending to want to make amends, and then realizing his mistake when Kate ends up trying to kill Stiles too. And… damn, I want to write this now.)
Anyway, there’s so much more to explore here but I’ve definitely rambled on long enough. Awesome question, anon, thank you!
20 years after i said i was gonna send this....okay I'm all for Noah headcanons if you wanna because I need more Noah Czerny in my life. And like....if you wanna do a name aesthetic, hi hello my name is Caitlin and I'm awful at picking my favorite anything including color but if I had to make an educated guess...purple.
bitch,, i love noah czerny it’s lit let’s do this
noah is really fucking good at skating but would die on a ripstick
he was low key a stoner in school (not like one of those annoying people who know way too fuckin much about weed but he just always seemed to have a joint on him)
he watched harry potter high when it came out and it freaked him tf out so he wouldn’t see the others despite whelk wanting to
absolutely terrible with plants. he follows all the instructions to a tee but somehow they never last
he loves loves loves disney movies, he knows all the easter eggs and the obscure trivia
once let his sister pierce his nose in their bathroom at 2am
speaking of which? his sister is his best friend
he’s always been kinda dorky and sweet so he got picked on as a kid and sister has fought people for him numerous times
she’s his hero and he loves her so much
every time he’s home they yell out a goodbye to their mom and duck out to go spend the day together walking around the city, talking, buying street food, and catching up. it’s the only time they don’t have curfew bc mom knows by now there’s no use when they lose track of time chatting and hanging out
why is noah always playing with blue’s hair? his sister’s hair grew long and he’d braid and style it for her ever day while she was brushing her teeth before school
noah loves dandelions because he thinks theyre brave for growing through sidewalk cracks
he didn’t have a lot of friends growing up because he was always flitting between groups of people, always excited about something but never sticking around long
it’s the promise of a magical wish that gets noah to stick around whelk because honestly, what’s more exciting then waking an ages old welsh king?
he called whelk “barry” and was the only one allowed to. whelk had a weird fondness for noah (outshone by his greed, yes, but it was there) that no one at aglionby understood. whelk literally looked down on everyone, but for some reason the hyperactive part time stoner with a habit of skipping class to chase butterflies caught his attention and kept it. somehow, noah’s intensely bright personality balanced out whelk’s dour one.
he swears he’s seen mothman
“noah mothman is in west virginia…and he isn’t even real….”
“I meant what I said”
who can honestly be bothered to tie their shoes he definitely knots his laces on every pair he owns so he can just slip them on
mint candies are his absolute favorite thing on the planet, but peaceful fun-loving noah would actually Commit Homicide for thin mints
whelk has definitely given noah Apology Thin Mints when noah called him out for being a little too much of a dick
all the seniors are kind of in love with him?? like they all love him and say hi to him all the time. there’s a varsity football player that gives noah rides on his shoulders, the guys on the swim team with him are always giving him bear hugs in the hallways or sharing their snacks at meets
he’s got a cracked tooth from the one (1) time he tried ice skating
LOVES the beach so much oh my god. the amount of times he dragged whelk to the beach only to be in the water and running around in the sand by himself while whelk was grumpily parked by a dune with a huge book
so……..all in all, noah was very loved.
when he went missing it went like this:
the swim team was putting up posters everywhere
his sister and mom were at the police station every day for weeks
whelk didn’t show up to school for a week and by the time he came back he’d lost a considerable amount of weight. he refused to speak to noah’s sister or mother. his statement to the police was that they were to meet after school, but noah never showed
the most solid piece of evidence henrietta pd had was an officer calling in that there might be a car fitting the description of the one missing along with noah. the recording cuts out after what sounds like a second voice (many voices?) whispering.
when henrietta pd declared him presumed dead it went like this:
raven boy blue goes black for the rest of the year in remembrance of noah czerny
anyone who tries to express their condolences to his closest known friend, whelk, is lucky if they meet silence, and unlucky if he instead decides to rip them a new one for deigning to speak to him.
his mother and sister go home and bury an empty casket with the rest of their family
the swim team drops out of the state tournament. they refuse to do it without noah, and the coach doesn’t blame them.
teachers find their eyes drawn to his empty seat, waiting for his hand in the hair, waiting for him to be incessantly tapping his pencil, waiting for his spot to not be empty, because it doesn’t feel right that he’s gone
noah doesn’t really know that he’s noah until gansey and ronan finally get through the sticky broken door into monmouth
but then in walks a king and a dreamer and noah isn’t a shadow anymore, he’s a soul, he’s solid, he’s part of something again until the day he gives himself again for gansey but it’s okay, because this time around he’s not just a town legend or warning.
Reasons "Heathers: the musical" is better than the movie
1. In the movie, JD goes from a 15 on the crazy scale to maybe a 50.
In the musical, JD goes from a 15 on the crazy scale to a definite 100.
2. In the movie, we don’t get to see how much JD actually cares about Veronica very much.
In the musical, we really get a sense for just how much JD actually loves Veronica, however unhealthy the love is.
3. In the movie, we see Heather Chandler for like, 2 seconds. Who is she? What makes her so awesome?
In the musical, we still don’t get to see too much why she’s so awesome, but she has a much bigger role and I just love it. It makes her awesome, I think.
4. In the movie, Veronica’s parents are complete ditzes that make me want to rip my hair out.
In the musical, they actually seem to care about their daughter.
5. Heather McNamara is a bit better developed in the musical than in the movie. (Does “Lifeboat” not make you want to sob??“
6. Martha Freaking Dunnstock. Perfect character. Perfect friend for Veronica. Only in the musical though. She’s in the movie for 3 minutes. (Sobs during "Kindergarten Boyfriend” too)
7. In the musical, Veronica actually has a personality. And a freaking soul. She shows way more remorse for everything, plus, all she wants is for everyone to be kind to one another and to live in a beautiful place.
Dylan I am freaking out as much as you abt baby driver. It looks sooo good and I wanna see it
please go see it!!!!!!!!!!! i love it!!! and even tho it has the okay? okay? it’s a metaphor hermione grapefruit guy..he’s honestly not terrible and the whole movie is driven by a soundtrack that is killer plus…..jon hamm.
Since I watched Beauty and the Beast a couple of weeks ago, I have fallen in love with the man behind the CGI and digital editing for the Beast: Dan Stevens. The past two weeks have been me going on a Dan Stevens spree, meaning watching quite a few of the TV shows and movies he’s in. And oml, this man can fucking act. He’s so good and he masters roles that are totally different from the one before.
In the FX show, Legion, he plays David Haller (aka Legion) from the Marvel Comics. He’s basically a cool, badass mutant with psychic abilities and other cool powers and is diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. (LIKE HONESTLY THE EFFECTS ON THIS SHOW ARE SO FREAKING COOL. U HAVE TO WATCH IT IF UR INTO THE SCI-FI SHIT OR SOME PRETTY GOOD GRAPHICS AND EFFECTS MAN)
AND THEEEEEEN, I found out this boy is also in Downton freaking Abbey. I’ve been wanting to watch it because of Dame Maggie Smith but then when I heard Dan was in it, I had to watch it. AND LET ME JUST SAY THAT MY POSH BOY, MATTHEW CRAWLEY, HAS STOLEN MY HEART. HE’S SO SWEET AND ADORABLE AND UGH I LOVE HIM SO MUCH…..then that Christmas special came and crushed my heart and made me more emo. fuck.
(this posh little fucker fml) (jk i love matthew)
And then I decided to watch a movie he was in, which was The Guest. This thriller is actually pretty intense though. I’ve only watched half of the movie and daaaaaaaammmmnnnnnn. wtf man. (here’s the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-psayRM1XqU )
bUT LET’S BE HONEST. DAN BE LOOKING HELLA HOT IN THIS MOVIE. I MEAN….
no joke, the first gif on this post is my reaction to this gif ^^^
And finally, we mustn’t forget about the role that made me go on a spree in the first place.
Beauty and the freaking Beast
All I can say that the casting was just perfect. And I love how they got an actor with the bluest eyes EVER (you know since Belle recognized the Beast when he turned human because of his beautiful blue eyes)
AND HIS SINGING VOICE….OML EVERMORE BECAME MY FAVORITE SONG RIGHT AFTER HEARING IT FOR THE FIRST TIME. IT WAS SO! FREAKING! GOOD! AGH
and there ya go. that was mostly me going Dan Stevens crazy but u gotta admit, for an actor to slay these different roles is just awesome and shows his great talent.
