give-me-this-movie

Watching a super hero movie directed by a woman is like putting glasses on for the first time.

I didn’t realize how much I had to squint through the “male gaze” till suddenly, miraculously, I didn’t have to.

There were absolutely NO eye candy shots of Diana. There were Amazons with ageing skin and crows feet and not ONE of them wore armor that was a glorified corset. When Diana did the superhero landing, her thigh jiggled onscreen.

Did you hear me? HER FUCKING THIGH JIGGLED. Wonder Woman’s thigh jiggled on a 20-foot tall screen in front of everyone.

Because she wasn’t there to make men drool. She wasn’t there to be sexy and alluring and flirt her way to victory, and that means she has big, muscular thighs, and when they absorb the impact of a superhero landing, they jiggle, and.that’s.WONDERFUL.

Thank you, Patty Jenkins, for giving me a movie about a woman, told by a woman,so I can see it through my eyes, not some dude bro who’s there for boobs and butts.

i want a Teen Movie™ where the nobody girl is discovered by the Queen Bee™ to be secretly pretty and is inducted into the Popular Girls Clique™ only to try to leave when she is pressured into harming her former nobody friends before the Queen Bee™ begs her to stay and takes off her makeup and jewelry and insists she’ll give them up for the nobody girl because she’s fallen in love with her.

simon vs. the homo sapiens agenda — i guess it was about loneliness. and it’s funny, because i don’t really think of myself as lonely. but there was something so familiar about the way blue described the feeling. it was like he had pulled the ideas from my head. like the way you can memorize someone’s gestures but never know their thoughts. and the feeling that people are like houses with vast rooms and tiny windows. the way you can feel so exposed anyway.

can we get some more soft gay movies? like i want to see two teenage girls giving each other a quick goodnight kiss after their first date. i want to see two boys walking down the hallway holding hands. i want to see a man dropping off his husband at work. i wanna see two women snuggling on the couch and talking about their day. we get enough angst in the real world. give me happy gay movies

that one moment you just know a movie has such an impact on you. just the music, the actors, the scenery, story, everything. when you feel chills and know that this movie means something to you. to feel so blessed that you are able to witness it for the first time, and then feel the same way every time you see it. it never gets old, it never goes out of style, it’ll always be the masterpiece you know it is. its one of the best feelings ever.

Ryan Reynolds and Andrew Garfield kissed at the Golden Globes

i think it’s a stretch to say Ryan Reynolds is doing the Lord’s work but he’s definitely doing Deadpool’s work 

Been thinking about Stakar’s and Yondu’s relationship a lot today, since it is basically set up to be a parallel to the one Yondu and Peter have (at least that’s what I think).

I bet Yondu was almost as annoying, sassy, bratty and a complete troublemaker during the earlier times with Stakar and his crew as Peter was. He was freed from a life as a battle slave - it would have taken time to heal, to open up and trust at least a little bit, but once he did? Once he did, he probably wanted to see everything, do everything, that he couldn’t do before. Suddenly he was free, and had a choice, and as a Ravager, he could take what he wanted.  “Steal from everyone” is the code after all.  And someone who had nothing before? He wanted it all.

So basically Yondu just re-living that teenager life he probably never had, with being a cheeky, sassy jerk, following no rules, stealing what he wanted (trinkets?) and getting into any trouble he could get, just to feel alive. And running away afterwards with the biggest, toothiest smile.

Stakar’s crew had to swoop in time and time again, and Stakar swears that most of his grey hair were caused by Yondu. (The others by Aleta, but he isn’t gonna tell her that.)

Stakar furiously denies grinning whenever Yondu manages to escape by a hair’s breath again.

(Years and years later, betrayal and understanding and loss and grief laying between them, Stakar runs into a certain Terran named Peter Quill, who holds himself with the same confidence, the same stubbornness and the same grin as Yondu - there’s a glint in blue eyes and a challenging eyebrow raised at the old Ravager as he understands, as he sees.

And Stakar understands that after all, Yondu had saved at least one child. His own.)  

Chihokogate is overwhelmingly romantic; fight me

I’ve seen people describe the “Overcome Chihoko” story in a number of ways–Victor being Extra, crackfic, something written purely for laughs, and so forth. And yes, I think all of those things are true, to a certain extent, but I’m not sure we appreciate exactly how lovely of an instance of crackfic this is.

More below the cut.

Pen Pals

Pairing: Dean Winchester x Reader

Summary: The Reader takes up a Pen Pals writing program at her school, and soon finds herself falling for the military man who’s been sending her letters. What happens when she graduates? Will the letters still come after, or is she just a random person who was strung along just to blow off some steam via words? 

Word Count: 1.7kish

Warnings: AU, Fluff, Light Cursing

Author’s Note: Heyy my loves! This is my entry for @revwinchester‘s Birthday Challenge. I got the prompt “Soldier” with Dean (obviously). This was meant to be a one shot, but then I thought, why not make the other half in Dean’s POV? It’s only fair, right? Second part will come next weekend. And the third the following weekend. I really hope you guys like this! Feedback is definitely welcomed!!

*Part Two*



Chapter One: First Letters

Pen Pal - a person with whom one becomes friendly by exchanging letters, especially someone in a foreign country whom one has never met.


I never thought I’d be the one to do these kinds of things. When I signed up for it at the beginning of freshman year in high school, people thought I was insane. They didn’t think I was going to go through with it, you see.

Solangelo HC

So it’s been a while since I made any solangelo posts but this has been digging in the back of my mind so I had to just write these out ok? 

 So most people in the fandom hc the get together of solangelo to be a lot of Dramatic Confessions™ and Nico being hella confused/disbelieving/insecure/ect. Which is all well and good like hc what you will, but… 

Give me a solangelo that over the six months between BOO and TOA grew out of that insecure/dramatic phase while still in the friendship days.

Give me Nico who becomes so comfortable with will as a friend and the idea of someone caring for him that he can see what’s going on 

Give me Nico getting flirty but like Nico is Nico so it’s like are you flirting or do you want to kill me???

Give me a point when they both realize they have slowly been building up more than friendship and all those days hanging out in the arena they are making more excuses for physical contact than usual 

Give me snuggly movie nights in the Hades cabin where they just complain about dumb movies and make weird snack combinations and it is just so! soft!!

Give me them having a conversation where they acknowledge they have been dancing around the subject and that maybe neither of them said anything bc they were having such a good time just being in each others lives that they didn’t feel like they needed to label anything

Give me Nico showing up for breakfast one morning, taking his usual seat at the Apollo table and will kisses his cheek as he sits down. The idea of them in a relationship is so natural to both of them that they forget they never actually told Will’s siblings. They just kinda sit there looking laughing to each other as everyone is freaking out. Not like it was unexpected but like !exciting it finally happened! 

I am just such a strong believer in a solangelo that was already so close before being “official” that the line between friendship and dating was majorly blurred. 

Campers have trouble remembering when they actually started dating bc honestly not much changed except now they kiss?? 

“guys will and nico are official!” “havent they been dating for like a month???” “I thought they got together last monday…” “ummmm…”

 I’m sorry wow this got long. But yeah I just like soft lifemates Solangelo
