he was so good during the whole film

So after watching Hidden Figures I’ve been researching the lives of the main three protagonists and I found something really beautiful??? 

Karl Zielinski, the Polish Jewish man who in the film encourages Mary Jackson to go get her engineering degree is based on a real person! The real man’s name was Kazimierz Czarnecki and I wish that they’d left his real name in the narrative. He was a long time mentor of Mary and they even published a whole bunch of scientific papers together! And, when he retired, she threw a party for him.

Kevin Costner’s ‘Some White Men Were Good During Segregation’ plotline was utterly useless, unnecessary and complete historical revisionism designed to make white people feel comfortable. If they wanted a white male protagonist, they should have focused on the achievements of Kazimierz Czarnecki instead and celebrated the solidarity between Jewish people and Black people.

[MAGAZINE INTERVIEW] 170519 SEUNGHOON FOR SINGLES KOREA JUNE ISSUE

Lee Seunghoon’s Confidence

Armed with confidence strengthened from experience, WINNER Lee Seunghoon’s existence appears even in swaying shadows. Discontinuous accidents, shattered time, and mad cheers made people forget his real self. 

“After drinking all the coke / clink, only ice cubes are left / clink, the sound they make bumping around / it is clear // Words that couldn’t be delivered / rustle, in a pocket / a letter rustles / it is faint // But // in the place where someone leaves / behind, go / with time, leave / so that there is nothing left / not even a droplet of lingering / attachment” – Lee Seunghoon “Things Left Behind”

WINNER Lee Seunghoon shared his most recent poem that he wrote for his fans, which gained much attention, with SINGLES. He had written it carefully by hand and had a photo of it saved on his phone. The name of the poem is “Things Left Behind”. “I’ve been writing poems constantly. It’s not a big deal though. There are many similarities between raps and poems. I gathered up all the lyrics that didn’t fit into songs and all the memos I took after a good inspiration and there were quite a number.” He writes his worries, thoughts, emotions, and things he talks about with his friends. “I want to publish a collection of my poems with illustrations or photos that go with them. It would be nice if Mino drew them for me.” He quietly and carefully explained what kind of collection of poems he wants to publish. And then he added, “I don’t write poems to gain attention for revealing a hidden literary value. All of them are light enough to be easily seen on SNS. How wonderful is it that I can share what I have with others!?” This twenty-six-year-old man, who is humble but knows how to clearly state what he wants, enjoys new challenges. He wishes to make a surprise appearance on “Surprise” or any programs similar to it and become a moodmaker on “Yoo Heeyeol’s Sketchbook”. These wishes are not impossible as he made a surprise guest appearance on “Boni Hani” with Song Mino before. “I like fun things. When we prepare for a comeback and when we work on music, I always think about how to make things more enjoyable and how to make people laugh. I love to think up of something creative and original and use it onstage or during WINNER promotions. If I hadn’t become a member of WINNER, I think I would’ve worked at an advertising company.” His answer fit his nickname “Deputy Lee of YG Entertainment”.

It was possible to prove Lee Seunghoon’s passion during this promotion period. “We’re the first group in YG to promote for 8 weeks. Thanks to that, many windows have opened for us to communicate with our fans. It is physically tiring because of the many schedules but I’m not stressed. Every moment is enjoyable. Although he is smiling brightly right now, they had many worries while preparing for this comeback. “We were so burdened when we were filming our music videos in LA. We worried about whether we were walking on the right path.” However, after the release of “REALLY REALLY”, he was able to relieve some of those worries. It was thanks to the explosively positive response. “I think, in the end, our fans tell us whether we are doing well or not. A good response means it’s the right path.” As he is famous for his exceptional love for fans, he never stopped talking about them during the whole interview. It shouldn’t be a surprise since he has WINNER and their fanclub “INNERCIRCLE” tattooed on the back of his neck.

Lee Seunghoon stated that he worked on making music with Kang Seungyoon yesterday. Are you already preparing for the next comeback even though current promotions haven’t ended? “Whenever we end up having time off, the members gather in the recording studio without being asked. Truthfully, because ‘REALLY REALLY’ did so much better than we expected, we are feeling some burden. Yesterday, we talked about having fun working on the next songs without thinking about the results. It’s natural for the results to be good if the process of making the songs is fun.” There is nothing confirmed after promotions end. But it looks like there are many fun projects in his head. “I have thought about releasing a solo album. I will be able to show a completely different side of WINNER Lee Seunghoon. Right now, I have more fun being creative while doing WINNER activities. I’m really interested in fun ideas that can be empathized with others.” There is experience behind his flashes of thoughts. “Even with ordinary talent, once it gains strength from experience, it becomes eye-catching. That’s what happened to me. The obvious action of turning the mat received praises like ‘his adapting to the unexpected is brilliant’. Thanks to that, I gained confidence.” He is currently focusing on honestly sharing his thoughts. This applies to writing poems. “If I have something I want to do and if I can do it, I don’t hesitate. The other day, some of the staff members told me that they were in Jeju so I got on the plane as soon as my schedule ended. Experiences like that inspires many more good ideas. And I like doing things like that too.” There is a reason to look forward to WINNER’s next promotions- No, there are now many reasons to look forward to WINNER’s next promotions.

Phil is not on fire

~So I have a huge writing test tomorrow and I’m trying to practice, so I thought I’d put together a little something based off the PINOFs~

~Genre- f l u f f y a s a c l o u d ~

~Word Count- 1018~

~*NOTE* I poke fun at a lot of theories that some people believe about things that were said or done in the PINOFs; I’m not saying that any of these things are true or false, it’s called fanFICTION for a reason. Ok thanks :) ~


~November 30, 2016~

Dan sat in his sofa crease on YouTube. He was taking a break, as he and Phil had just filmed and posted Phil is not on fire 8. He thought that since they had just posted the latest installment of the series, and since it was such a special occasion, he would rewatch all of the Phil is not on fires. 

Dan watched his younger self read all the questions to Phil, as he looked at Phil, seeming mesmerized. He smiled at “Fetus Dan” and his “heart eyes”. At the end of the video, Fetus Dan looked off into the distance, telling nothing but the truth. “This was the most fun I’ve ever had.” 

Dan’s younger self turned to look at the camera, but within a second he was tackled to the floor. There was a jump cut, but Dan remembered exactly what had happened next. 

Phil had smiled down at him, poking his tongue out of a gap in his teeth, the way Dan had seen him do through a screen, but never in person. Dan’s mind went blank. He didn’t know what to do. He’d never really thought much about his sexuality before, but he quite honestly enjoyed Phil’s lips pressed against his, and he kissed back. The younger Dan knew this would be the beginning of a relationship that could last a lifetime. 

Dan smiled, remembering his and Phil’s first kiss, especially after such a huge time in their lives together. He was finally confident that his younger counterpart was right. Their relationship would last forever. 

By the time Dan had finished his flashback, the video was over and the next one on the playlist he chose was beginning to play. Dan watched as his younger self heard Phil choose both Howell and Striker as his surname of choice. Of course, only one played on the screen, but both played in his head. He smiled as he and Phil reenacted Titanic, and as he created children-flavored ice cream. He reminisced as he read a comment saying he needed an abortion, and as Phil pulled a picture of Nick Jonas from his shirt. Those were good times. 

The setting changed in the next video from Phil’s old bedroom to their Manchester flat. Dan cringed at his horribly tanned skin and concerningly low pants. He did, however, get a laugh out of their helium bit. He watched himself shove an entire apple in his mouth. Tumblr enjoyed that one. 2011 was an interesting year. 

Dan was sad watching the next video. 2012 was nothing but a cringe year. He tried not to think about it. The only time he smiled throughout the whole video was the time when someone sent a question for him. “I feel special,” he had said.

“You are,” Phil had responded. He felt special then and now. Dan was in a good mood, so he continued on without taking too much time to think about 2012. 

Dan smiled at a much happier version of himself in Phil is not on fire 5. He couldn’t help but giggle as the slightly younger Dan visibly flung spit across Phil’s bedroom when filming a slow motion video. He then smiled softly at Phil crossing his eyes during his slow motion bit. Phil was such a spork. He even cringed a bit at the memory of Phil blowing on his neck. Dan still didn’t like people touching his neck. He watched the friend handshake he and Phil came up with, wishing he remembered that a few days ago when they were filming Phil is not on fire 8 and had to do it again. His favorite part, however, was watching Phil put on his horrible leather t-shirt and do the sexy end screen dance. Dan was laughing so loud that Phil looked at him quizzically as he passed Dan carrying a bowl of his cereal. Dan rolled his eyes at his housemate’s cereal-stealing habits, but went back to his trip down memory lane. 

He immediately remembered Phil is not on fire 6 as the one where they looked like they were kissing while Phil was drawing the cat whiskers on his face. Dan laughed at the Tumblr uproar that followed. He watched as he and Phil made jokes and laughed at each other with the same comfortable vibes they shared now. His favorite part was the lizards song. He had no clue at the time how extremely popular that would become. Well, he thought it was his favorite. Then he saw his bit with Timmy the Snake. He laughed so loud Phil came to check on him. Phil came in and sat down beside him. He noticed what Dan was watching and watched with him as the two switched shirts for the ending of Phil is not on fire 6. 

The two cuddled together as they watched the next video. They laughed together as they watched their chips and salsa fanfic, and they cringed together as they watched Phil’s stress mushroom explode all over them. The two enjoyed their trip down memory lane together, especially now that they associated the Phil is not on fires with such an important memory for the two of them. 

They then played the final video on the playlist: Phil is not on fire 8. They had only posted it a day ago, but it already had over a million views. All the memories were still fresh in Dan’s mind, so only one stuck out to him. 

He had been asked to rummage through Phil’s bedside drawer. At the time, he didn’t understand why Phil was so upset when Dan did this, but when he opened the drawer, there was a small, black box inside. Dan ignored the box and pulled out some lip balm. He filmed the rest of the video with his mind still on nothing but the box. After filming, Dan asked Phil about the box and Phil came clean. 

Finished with yet another flashback, Dan looked down at the ring on his finger. He cuddled up to his fiancee and said to him, “Thanks for 8 amazing years.” 

NCT 127 Reacting to S/O Having Kissing Scenes in a Movie

Originally posted by openyoureyesfornct

Prompt:  Heya! Can I request NCT 127 reaction to their s/o having a lead role in a romance movie and she has too many kissing scenes with the other lead role?

Author’s Note: Finally moved into my dorm room and got time to work on this request! (I swear I can only find gifs of all of them dancing). Writing stuff like this honestly makes my day because I’m already starting to feel the homesickness that comes with boarding school and writing makes me happy.

Taeil

Originally posted by xehunted

This boy was so eager to come on set with you when he finally had some time off, but his excitement wore off once the director made you redo a scene over and over again. You were fine with the kissing with the other lead, it was Taeil that made it just the slightest bit uncomfortable. He wouldn’t say anything during the scene, he would just be watching you with an expressionless face. Once it was over, he’d sort of cling on to you.

I’m a WAY better kisser than he is, right?

Taeyong

Originally posted by taetohan

Ok, he looks super fluffy and unassuming, but BOY IS HE SHOCKED WHEN HE SEES YOU FULL ON MAKING OUT WITH THIS ACTOR AT THE PREMIERE OF YOUR MOVIE. Like you had warned him that he was gonna see you kissing another man, but he didn’t think it would be like this. And the fact this was the 4th scene (oh yes, he counted) with y’all making out, you sure as heck didn’t warn him about this. He looks over at you and leans in.

So… I’m gonna assume you were imaging it was me when you were kissing him like that.

Johnny

Originally posted by jaehoneytoast

There’s a piece of me that wants to say he’ll be hella jealous. But then there’s a large piece of me that believes Johnny would be totally unfazed by this. Like he would totally take this as an opportunity to “help you” with your acting just so he could make out with you (real original Johnny boy). I mean he’d obviously roll up to the movie set with you like he’s the shit (he is) and give the other lead the whole once over look scaring the shit out of him just a little. 

You know I’m always available to help you practice for certain scenes, babe.

Is this just an excuse to make out with me, Johnny Seo.

Well if you put it like that…

Yuta

Originally posted by why-jaehyun

Well, Yuta is jealous to say the very least. Oh and he’s vocal about it too. Like. Really vocal about it. He’d be in an interview and the host does not hesitate to ask his opinion about the heavy makeout scene with you and the lead actor of the movie. He’d sit up a little straighter, his face would go slightly blank before his signature smirk, and he’d lightly kick Mark who giggled just loud enough for him to hear.

I’m obviously a better kisser than he was, so I’m not worried about anything. We made up for it later on. *wink wink*

DID MADELINE JUST GET SUGGESTIVE GET THE HOLY WATER YALL

Doyoung

Originally posted by angel-johnny

Oh sweet little Doyoung would be jealous but in his own way. I feel like he’d be a bit like Taeil in the sense that you’d take him on set with you and right after you film the scene a couple times with the kissing, he’d cling to you like a koala. You’d know he was jealous because when you were asked to prepare to film another scene with kissing, he’d press his lips to your neck or hand or wherever he could get to and whine just a little.

Do you have to go jagiya? You can just film it with me!

Jaehyun

Originally posted by nikaiv

So, I’m also getting the whole totally-cool-with-it-let-me-help-you vibe from our lovely Jaehyun. But I think along with that, he’d still be the slightly jealous type. He knows that it comes with the job and everything, but he still doesn’t totally love the idea of you kissing a guy you’d only met a few days prior. However, to make him feel better, you suggest to him that you practice the scene with him a couple times to make sure you get it right, knowing good and well that the only “scene practicing” y’all would do is the making out. But you’re cool with it and so is he.

So, like, when do we start?

WinWin

Originally posted by bro-do-you-even-chogiwa

Shocked little Sicheng bean wouldn’t know what on God’s green Earth to do when he finally watched the movie with you. Because he was on tour when it premiered, he didn’t get the chance to see it then. And although you warned him about the kissing scenes, he was not prepared for the multitude of them. Granted, it was a relatively pg13 movie so it wasn’t heavy make out scenes, but the fact that you were so good of an actor that you looked at the other lead with such love before each kiss. You could see the gears turning in his head and you gave him a light peck on the cheek.

Don’t worry, I thought of you the whole time.

Mark

Originally posted by nst127

So Mark is 18. Therefore, you wouldn’t be much older of younger (depending on the reader) than him so the kissing scenes are not super intense. Rather, it’s more on the line of quick pecks to the lips than straight up kissing. Mark, although initially taken aback, is confident enough in y’all’s relationship that he isn’t worried about you during the filming of the movie.

As long as you don’t leave me for him, I’m good. Besides, who else would wake up at 3 in the morning to watch cartoons with you if you had a bad dream?

Haechan

Originally posted by haecha

Our dear Donghyuck is 17 so it would be the same as Mark. You, as the S/O, would not be having serious kissing scenes in this movie. But this savage little shit would just straight up come for the lead actor DURING the movie premiere. Boy would make comments on how the actor obviously didn’t have experience “like he did” when it comes to how you like to be kissed. You’d have to slap him on the knee several times because although it was hilarious, it was also true and you didn’t want him to hear what your boyfriend was saying.

Just look at the way he’s holding your hand while kissing you. How did you not cringe while doing that?

Donghyunk!

What? I’m just being honest!

Request from @sugarandedge: Okay because I’m thirsty AF for Jack and just fell into hole reading about celebrity PR relationships. Any way I was wondering if you could write something about you and Jack not really liking each other at first and being put in a PR relationship because of the film and yeah you can take it from there and end it however you want.

A/N: This is probably too long but was just having so much fun writing it I’ve spent like all afternoon on it. Christ. Anyways, hope you like it. Also I’m so sorry about all the fucking cheese jokes.


“You’ve got to be joking,” you spluttered, incredulous.

You were sat opposite your publicist in a quiet coffee shop, having just been told that the powers-that-be on the film you had just finished wanted you to pretend to be in a relationship with your co-star, Jack Lowden.

“Look, you wouldn’t have to do much,” your publicist, Brenda, said timidly, “Just been seen out together a couple of times, you know, walking, holding hands, that kind of thing. Go to the premier together, maybe share a kiss…”

“A kiss? No way.” You sat back in your chair, arms folded across your chest.

It wasn’t kissing him that you were opposed to, having kissed him in the film – it would be just like acting – it was the whole idea that you hated. You and jack hadn’t exactly seen eye-to-eye during the filming process, constantly bickering. He was a smug little Scottish prick, all suave moves and cheesy lines. You’d roll your eyes and make some comment about how his big chat was likely compensating for something. You couldn’t stand the guy; his self-satisfied little smirk, those arrogantly deep dimples, his eyes so blue that frankly you found them ostentatious. Granted, he was good-looking, but he knew it and that got on your wick no end. You knew if you had to pretend to be in a relationship with him you would never hear the end of it from him. He would forever think he had the upper hand.

“I won’t do it,” you said finitely.

“Okay, so we can veto the kiss but-”

“No. I won’t do any of it. You know I can’t stand the guy,” you pleaded.

“I don’t understand it, Y/N. everyone else loves him. He’s funny and friendly and actually very sweet. And you two have such chemistry, anyone would think that your on-screen romance didn’t require much acting.”

You snorted; the thought of being genuinely attracted to him was so ridiculous to you. Well, you did find him attractive, but you know, he was an arse. You weren’t attracted to him. You weren’t.

“That’s ridiculous.”

“Come on, Y/N, please do it. Just a couple of pictures for the press, you’ll only have to see him a few times.” Breda put her best puppy dog eyes on and you knew you were trapped.

“Do I have a choice?”

She shook her head guiltily.

You huffed, “Fine.”

“Well, this is fun,” Jack said sarcastically as you walked side by side down the street. You rolled your eyes, thankfully concealed behind sunglasses.

“Should we hold hands?” he mocked, faintly stroking your hand with his pinkie, your skin brushing together for just a moment. You had to refrain from snapping your hand away from him.

“Oh, don’ look so miserable, we’re supposed te be in love!” He was so breezy about the whole situation, seeming fine with being used like a pawn, it made you resent him a little more. You plastered a smile on your face as you went into a supermarket, acutely aware of cameras following you around. You tried to act natural and happy, laughing at Jack’s crappy jokes and occasionally touching his arm.

Acting. It’s just acting. Deep breaths, be professional.

“Hey hey,” Jack said excitedly as you entered the dairy aisle, “How do ye like a cheese joke? Which cheese do ye use to lure a bear out o’ its cave?”

You sighed, “Camembert. Everyone knows that one.”

“Okay, what did the cheese say when it looked in the mirror?”

“Halloumi. Very droll,” you said sarcastically.

“Ye think ye can do any better?” he grinned.

You hummed, not wanting to indulge him, before giving in. “Which cheese do you use to hide a horse?”

“Mascarpone. Yer gonnnae have to do better than that.”

You bit your lip to hide a smile. “Okay, what is a cheese-lover’s favourite type of music?”

He shrugged, and you smirked, “R ‘n’ Brie”.

He laughed earnestly. “Okee, that’s pretty good. But who is a cheese-lover’s favourite composer?”

“Who?”

“Mozart-rella.”

You chuckled, “Did you just come up with that one?”

He shrugged in faux humility, “It just came te me.”

“Well, it was a bit of a stretch, but it was pretty gouda.”

A laugh burst out of him, “Oh wow, I dinnae see that one coming.”

“Sorry, that wasn’t very mature of me,” you said with a wink. Smiling, he shook his head, “I think ye win, I cannae compete with that.”

You inclined your head and sauntered into the next aisle. He jogged after you, still chuckling.

He came back to your flat with you, to complete the illusion, and helped you put the shopping away. You were sat at the kitchen table with a cup of tea, as Jack stood at the window, peeking out to see if the paparazzi had gone yet.

“Nah, there’s a couple still lingering.”

You took a sip, “I guess you can stick around for a bit then.”

He pursed his lips, suddenly uncomfortable, all his earlier jubilance dissolved.

“Might be here a while, it dinnae look like they’re plannin’ on leavin’ any time soon. One guy’s go’ a camping chair out.”

You scoffed dejectedly, “Best make yourself at home then.”

You suggested you put a film on after the uncomfortable silence became too palpable.

You sat on the same sofa, not touching but sharing a blanket. A couple of times you felt him looking at you, but you ignored it, along with the butterflies that seemed to be fluttering in your stomach under his gaze.

When the movie finished, Jack got up to check the window again. “Still there,” he sighed.

“How are you so okay with this?” you blurted out, the question all of a sudden too much to retain.

He looked at you, startled. You eyed the carpet, unable to meet his gaze.

“With what?”

“You know, this whole fake relationship thing,” you said, more to the carpet than him.

“I’m no’.”

You looked up at him in confusion, “But this morning, you seemed so… unfazed. It was almost like you were happy about it.”

He shook his head, a slight smile pulling sadly at his mouth. You stared for a moment, noting the shape of his lips for the first time, and the way his tongue darted out to wet them.

“Acting, love.”

You had felt yourself, somewhat against your will, warming to him, but with those two words your body went cold.

“Oh,” you breathed. You couldn’t understand why that seemed to hurt you so much. His eyes went wide with worry as he came to sit beside you again. “I didnae mean… It’s no’ you, I just,” he ran a hand through his hair. “I don’ like being used like this, any more than you do. I feel like I have no control over my life anymore. Don’ get me wrong, I love my job, but I hate all the politics that go with it.” He sat back, sighing gloomily. “A dinnae ken. I guess I just wanted te make the best of a bad situation.”

You shuffled a little closer to him.

You stood on your doorstep, seeing Jack out. He hugged you and whispered, “I’m gonnae give ye a peck on the cheek, if ye don’ mind. Fer the cameras, ye know.”

You nodded into his shoulder, signalling your understanding, and he pulled away to place a tender kiss on your cheek. You smiled to yourself, enjoying the feeling of his lips on your skin rather too much. He said goodbye and disappeared down the street with a final wave. You took a deep breath and shuddered after closing the door. Tears involuntarily welled in your eyes, but you couldn’t understand why. You refused to let them fall.

— 

You opened the car door and were hit by the roar of screaming fans, at the premiere of your new film. You had been told to walk the carpet with Jack, even though he had arrived first, and act like a couple. However, you were under strict instructions to never explicitly say you were in a relationship, just coyly dodge questions and bat your eyelids. Jack appeared before you, in a dapper three-piece suit, looking more charming and handsome than you had ever seen him. He offered his hand to help you out of the car. You took it gratefully, and let him steady you. He stopped a moment, taking in the sight of you in an elegant black dress draped loosely over your shapely frame. He appeared to take a deep breath, before taking your arm in his and leading you down the carpet. He leaned down to your ear and whispered, “You look amazing, Y/N.”

The way his lips brushed against you made you shudder, and you felt a tug in your chest. You hadn’t seen him in the weeks since your staged shopping trip, and you’d tried to forget how vulnerable he had made you feel.

“You don’t have to keep up the façade when only I can hear what you’re saying,” you retorted, half joking but half bitter at these new reactions to this man that you had thought you didn’t like.

‘Maybe I’m going method,” he smirked. “Or maybe I just wanted to tell you what I was thinking.”

You felt your face get hot, and you didn’t know whether to smile or frown.

The whole event passed in a whirlwind of questions, mostly about your alleged relationship with Jack. Usually calm and composed, you felt flustered, distracted, so Jack did most of the talking. You couldn’t stop yourself from gazing at the way his jaw moved when he spoke, how his dimples played hide and seek. You were mesmerised by him.

“There have been some rumours that this isn’t a genuine relationship, just staged for publicity, given that you’ve only been seen together the once.” One interviewer said, rather forwardly. She showed you a picture of the two of you embracing in your doorway, capturing that moment when he told you he was going to kiss your cheek. The photo betrayed you, revealing your glossy eyes and rosy cheeks.

“But it’s hard to argue with this picture, right? I know you’re actors but this looks pretty real to me.” You tried to speak but the words wouldn’t come. You swallowed, but Jack saved you before you could embarrass yourself further.

“We’ve both been really busy with work just lately, ye know, so it’s difficult.”

The interviewer raised an eyebrow, “Anything to say about this particular image?”

Jack laughed nonchalantly, “No, no. It was just nice to see each other. We really fostered a friendship durin’ the shoot so it was nice to have a good catch up.” What a load of bullshit.

You smiled in agreement, itching to move on.


You posed together for photos, smiling professionally. You stiffened when Jack put his arm around you, and your face fell when one photographer called out for him to kiss you.

Jack turned his face to the screen behind you and muttered, “Are ye alrigh’, love?”

You nodded, your breath a little shaky and not trusting your voice to hold out.

“Look, I know ye hate this, pretending to be with me, but it’ll be over soon.” His eyes met yours for a second and you felt yourself melting into him, “Can you smile just a little?”. The question was so gentle, so concerned, and tinged with sadness.

Your voice was fragile and hushed, but the words sailed across the space between you.  

“It’s not the ‘being with you’ that I don’t like. It’s pretending.”

For an excruciatingly long moment he was silent. The world fell away and all you could see was him; all you could hear was your drumming heartbeat. You searched his eyes for a sign, a hint, of his reaction, to no avail. Until his eyes skipped to your lips, so briefly you might have imagined it. You couldn’t stop the smile that tugged at the corner of your mouth, causing you to bite your bottom lip. Your chest heaved in anticipation and apprehension, as a cacophony of thoughts clamoured around in your head, infecting your chest, your hands, your stomach. You felt your skin tingle as Jack traced his fingers down your bare arm, before moving his other hand up to the vulnerable skin of your neck. He brushed the pad of his thumb along your jaw and held you there for a moment. You held your breath as he leant down and touched his lips to yours, the contact so light it could have been raindrops.

“I want ye to be mine,” he whispered, eyes still closed and forehead resting against yours. “That’s all I’ve ever wanted.”

You allowed the supressed smile to eclipse your face and muttered, brushing your nose against his, “Then I’m yours.”

alex knew something wasn’t right during marble hornets, he wasn’t himself. before he went completely off the deep end, he invited the whole cast for a big bonfire. alex claimed it was for a scene of marble hornets, but he just wanted one last time together as a group. everyone was laughing and having a good time. they played Truth Or Dare and Spin The Bottle, made S'mores and even sang campfire songs. alex, during the bonfire, addressed the group as a whole. he said he was proud of all their hard work and dedication to the film, and that the pleasure was his working with them. he called this day, the final day of peace. sitting in his car, he laughs. “aren’t I always so cheesy”

anonymous asked:

hello~ can i request svt's reaction when they watch their girlfriend/ girl bff act as the villain in a horror movie? ㅋㅋㅋ sorry that it's so long TT

*Only coups has a GIF because his face is too funny* and i really liked this request, thanks anon x

S.coups - Never knew you had this side to you when acting and lowkey finds it Hot. Doesn’t know whether to tell you how hot he finds it so just stares at you at the end of the movie. (You’re Josh btw hehe)

Joshua - Smirks to himself every time you come up because eyyy thats his girl but tries to hide it because the plots pretty good but he cant help think about how good you are. Thinks you’re really cool for starring as a villain in a horror movie.

Jun - Is a proud Bf/bff because he was also an acter. When the movie ends teases you by pretending to rate your acting and give you pointers on how to improve.

Hoshi - Mega attracted and scared of you at the same time. Doesn’t know if he can nap with you anymore because of how good your acting was. After the movie ends he sheepishly tells you how amazing you are and that he’s ill so he can sleep on the couch, alone.

Wonwoo - Has never been more attracted to you. Thinks you’re amazing throughout the whole movie and compliments your acting before, after and during the whole film. Also gives you everything he owns so he can make a personal shrine for himself, after you sign it all.

Woozi - Like Wonwoo and Joshua would also be attracted to you and be like yeahh this is my girll but would just tell you on the outside that your acting was amazing considering how adorable you’re in real life. Would be super proud and advertise you movie to carats and the members.

DK - Would stare at you on screen in awe, because your acting seems really realistic and hes kinda mesmerized. He would actually have the funniest facial expressions whilst watching. It would go from a smile from when you come up to a terrified one with his eyes popping out. Would be your #1 fan boy after that.

Mingyu -  Thinks your acting is really cool and tries to secretly imitate your acting skills under his breathe. and makes sounds like “Waahh y/n” “Omg thats so amazing” When you do something scary or gruesome. 

The8 - Would pretend like he hasn’t already seen the movie because common hes your #1 supporter he’s already memorized all your lines. Would be super proud of you and tease you about your acting when the scenes get really dramatic.

Seungkwan - Every time you come up he would pretend to get scared and be like “Omg y/n, your face is so scary.” just to get a reaction out of you, would be really proud of how realistic your acting is but he’s also lowkey scared of you now and those screams were actually real.

Vernon - Doesn’t even realise you’re in the movie until it zooms into your face and then spends the rest of day pretending he knew and telling you how amazing you were. Is really impressed though and slightly embarrassed because he spent the first half of the movie thinking about how pretty the villain was.

Dino - Would continuously think about how talented you are and get really flustered when you ask him if he liked the plot because he just spent the whole movie fan-girling over how amazing your acting was. Also screams thought the whole movie brushing it off as also playing the part to make the movie more scary.

Thanks for requesting!

The Force Awakens: Behind the Scenes

You guessed it. It’s Julia here, back at it again from the fiery pits of hell that I like to call my bedroom, and welcome back to our weekly show, “How Many Times Can Adam Driver Fuck Julia Up!?” Last week, we had a short discussion about the way Adam Driver (Kylo Ren) twirled his lightsaber. This week, I would like to talk about the ‘behind the scenes’ gifs that have surfaced the internet this past week. 

Let’s begin with a simple one. John Boyega and Adam Driver rehearsing the Snow Fight scene. This one gets me going, man. LET ME POINT OUT THAT AFTER THE TWIRL ADAM DOES, HE DEADASS SLAPS JOHN IN THE FACE WITH HIS GLOVED HAND (I don’t remember seeing that in the movie, so I think that was a joke thing). I would also like to point out that John was legitimately TERRIFIED of Adam during the filming of the whole snow fight scene, so that makes every bit of my love for Adam just grow stronger. HE HAS SO MUCH PASSION FOR THE CHARACTERS THAT HE PLAYS IT IS INCREDIBLE.

WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT. A SLEEVELESS ADAM. BUTTER ME UP AND THROW ME IN THE OVEN. 

y’all i thought he looked good in the actual film but something about seeing him from a different pov is so breathtaking and it just does things to me how can someone be so fucking beautiful 

MY ANGEL HONEY CASUALLY TRAINING FUFKk

BUUUUT if you watch the mv it looks like murdoc is either trying too hard to be cool or like he just isnt very into all the girls touching him so hmm >>

Opinion on those saying LeFou is horrible gay representation in the Live Action Beauty and the Beast

Okay, i get why some of the LGBT Community are mad about LeFou being gay because they’re perpetuating the stereotype of fawning over straight guys (and making him the villain’s sidekick). As a gay teen boy, this does seem a little off, but when I read the Beauty and the Beast novelization, I don’t think LeFou is bad representation at all. In the beginning, Gaston and LeFou weren’t actually villains. LeFou, like everyone else just saw Gaston as this war hero and looked up to him. Later, Gaston shows his true colors, but throughout the story, LeFou is pretty much good and has a hard time being Gaston’s sidekick. He’s constantly pushed around and at some point he’s tired of it and gets on the good side. He learns from his mistakes as well. LeFou is NOT A VILLAIN.

***SPOILER ALERT***

There’s a scene where Gaston hits Maurice when he tries to show them the castle and ties him to a tree to be left and eaten by wolves. LeFou is there and he feels a strong amount of guilt to make him feel bad about siding with Gaston. (He gradually starts to notice that Gaston isn’t the war hero everyone thinks he is). Also, Gaston and LeFou’s “friendship” seems pretty toxic and there’s subtle hints of that throughout the novel. It’s in the middle part where LeFou starts getting scared.

***EVEN BIGGER SPOILER***

During the attack on the castle, Gaston uses LeFou as a human shield and when he’s on the ground feeling weak, Gaston leaves him. LeFou is SO FUCKING DONE WITH THIS SHIT. And he ends up saving Mrs. Potts from falling. And they have a little exchange about being treated like an object. It then says that he’s “feeling lighter now that he had finally shaken off his abusive partner.”

- - x - -

I still have mixed feelings about this whole LeFou thing, but I guess the writers’ intentions were good. We wouldn’t know how they’d actually bring that up to their audience in the film, but I guess we won’t know til it comes out. I guess we also have to keep in mind that this is progress for us in the LGBT Community. Pretty soon there’s be more lgbt charaters that children will be able to see and look up to.

I’m open to listen for other thoughts and opinions on the topic :) I’d love to hear what you guys think. Just no hate please. On me. Please. Lecture me. I don’t wanna be a toxic part of the community.

Epic Movie (Re)Watch #198 - The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Spoilers Below

Have I seen it before: Yes

Did I like it then: Yes.

Do I remember it: Yes.

Did I see it in theaters: No.

Format: Blu-ray

1) The prologue.

The studio originally wanted to cut the prologue, but I’m glad they didn’t because it works REALLY well at establishing the world and lore of Middle Earth moving forward. I’m someone who has never read any of the books, so my only experience with this world IS the movies. And the prologue works not only to set up the intense backstory of this story, it also sets up the ring as a character all its own. But more on that later.

2) Ian McKellen as Gandalf.

Originally posted by stiilesstilinski

McKellen was nominated for an Oscar because of his performance in this film (but oddly not because of the sequels, even though the performance loses none of what makes it special). This trilogy has a number of stand out cast members in it and McKellen is one of them. He is able to fully embrace all of Gandalf’s qualities. He is wise, occasionally angry, has immense patience but does lose it at times, and just has this massive beating heart. The way he interacts with the other characters - namely Frodo and Bilbo - shows just how important he is to them. You get invested in him and their relationships. It’s an absolutely wonderful role.

3) The Shire.

Originally posted by tlotrgifs

The trilogy is able to consistently portray a song sense of place across Middle Earth, so it is important that The Shire starts the trend. Through production design, writing, character, and even music (Howard Shore’s score plays an incredible part in all three films), there is a true sense of peace to The Shire. It feels like home, the one place which is untouched by the darkness which spreads through Middle Earth (in the films at least). And creating such a sense of safety which the audience then leaves from makes the following conflict all the more intense.

4) According to IMDb:

Gandalf’s painful encounter with a ceiling beam in Bilbo’s hobbit-hole was not in the script. Sir Ian McKellen banged his forehead against the beam accidentally. Peter Jackson thought McKellen did a great job “acting through” the mistake, and kept it in.

5) Ian Holm as Bilbo Baggins

Originally posted by tolkienandholmes

Upon first meeting Bilbo you understand the warmth that lies beneath him, but the jadedness is what comes through strongest. He’s fed up with the simple living of The Shire, of the proper hobbits, and he longs for adventure. It’s a feeling I think most people have had at least once in their lives and it gets you invested in the character. Holm is a great character actor and does as fine a job here as he did in, say, Alien or The Fifth Element. You understand upon meeting him how important he is to Frodo, Gandalf, the story even, and he’s memorable even with minimal screen time (although minimal screen time in a trilogy of films all around three hours long is still a fair amount of screen time).

6) Elijah Wood as Frodo.

Originally posted by birdintheuniverse

Frodo is really the main hero of this journey. He’s the one who carries the titular thing and definitely the one who goes through the biggest change from beginning to end (which is saying something considering some of the character development in these films). In this film, Wood is able to play Frodo with an incredible amount of warmth in him. You understand that he is a good person who is happy, but he forsakes that happiness to do the right thing (taking the ring to destroy it). Wood plays Frodo’s progressing grief and (in future films) descent into madness absolutely incredibly. You have to believe him through ever emotionally state and Wood performs in a way where you do.

7) This is a great representation of Gandalf’s complexities as a character.

Gandalf [after Bilbo accuses him of wanting the steal the ring]: “Bilbo Baggins! Do not take me for some conjurer of cheap tricks! I am not trying to rob you! [Calmer now] I am trying to help you.”

Don’t mess with Gandalf. He may act kind to his friends, those he holds in good standing, but if you piss him off he will get so mad the room literally darkness around him. Juxtaposing this threatening anger with deep compassion for his friend is a great way of showing the audience just who the grey wizard is.

8) The trilogy deals with tone shifts REALLY well, to the point where you don’t even realize that there is a shift. But we are able to move from light happy Shire territory to dark evil “one true ring” territory effortlessly. I dig that.

9) I had a whole conversation with @theforceisstronginthegirl WHILE I WAS WATCHING THE MOVIE to figure this out. Because, besides invisibility, I didn’t really understand what the ring DID. I knew it worked as a horcrux which could bring Sauron back, but besides that? Now I understand the ring is more representative of the temptation of evil. There is power in evil. The power to influence, even the power itself is tempting. And the ring represents this. That works really well, I think. Better than - say - giving you superpowers through an evil ring.

10) Sean Astin as Samwise Gamgee.

Originally posted by tlotrgifs

While Frodo does start very grounded, the ring does end up effecting him in many ways. Not Sam though. Sam is consistently good and human throughout all three films, always doing the right thing, always having the best intentions for his friends in mind. The Fellowship needed Sam for the same reason the films do and that is because he is the heart of both. He’s the small town hobbit who has no aspirations for pride or adventure, only to do the right thing. And he stays this way from beginning to end. He is a good man and, in many ways, Frodo’s rock throughout the journey to Mordor. Sean Astin plays Sam just brilliantly, taking any sense of ego out of the performance and just letting Sam breathe as a character. He’s absolutely wonderful and has a great connection with Elijah Wood’s Frodo, helping you get invested in that relationship also. All in all, Sam is just great.

10.1) Yes, I ship Sam and Frodo. Not in a way where I’m like, “I’m so mad they didn’t get together in the end!” But like in a way where I understand how deep their relationship is already and can easily see them being with each other.

11) Christopher Lee as Saruman

Originally posted by dailytolkien

Even before we learn he’s evil, Saruman is a dick. Calling Gandalf stupid and referring to Hobbits as “half-lings”. Lee is able to make the white wizard absolutely chilling and threatening, a guy you know you don’t want to mess with from moment one. Lee actually knew author JRR Tolkein and I believe had hoped to play Gandalf. Even though he didn’t, he still read the novels once a year every year until his passing. So he brings a lot of respect and understanding to the part which shows through. While Lee has always been a great villain actor, he’s almost chameleonic as Saruman I think. He knows the character inside and out; his motivations, how far he’ll really go, and that makes for a wonderful performance.

12) Merry and Pippin.

Originally posted by ghisborne

Portrayed by Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd respectively, both films characters go through a wonderful transformation in films two and three. However, this is a post about Fellowship, and in Fellowship we get a strong sense of who these characters are in the beginning (making their future development all the stronger). They are used for a lot of comedic relief in the film and are very good at it. Each of the Hobbits brings their own brand of warmth and heart to the first film, with this duo being no different. Each actor is great in their part and plays off the other incredibly well. Merry and Pippin are a set, they’re linked. And you understand the strength of that bond right away.

13) The Black Riders.

Originally posted by canaduuuh

These movies do an excellent job with their monsters/villains. The Black Riders are a great representation of that. Their design is wicked strong and immediately threatening, playing upon classic fears of the unknown as they are literally shrouded in darkness. Every time they appear on screen there is an immediate feeling of threat. They’re just freaking awesome.

14) Hey look, it’s director Peter Jackson!

(GIF source unknown [if this is your GIF please let me know].)

15) Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn

Originally posted by tlotrgifs

Probably my favorite character in THIS film (Éowyn is my favorite character in the whole trilogy, but she’s not in this movie), Viggo Mortensen is crazy strong as the mysterious ranger. He reportedly was so in character during filming that director Peter Jackson referred to him as “Aragorn” for over half an hour without him realizing it. He has the grizzled rogue thing down but without the irresponsibility which can be attributed with the characters. There is this clear sense of both duty, grief, fear, and even shame for his ancestors which are always at conflict with each other that makes the character WILDLY interesting. Honestly, he’s just really freaking good in the part.

16) Ah, to eat like a hobbit.

Aragorn: “Gentlemen, we do not stop ’til nightfall.”

Pippin: “What about breakfast?”

Aragorn: “You’ve already had it.”

Pippin: “We’ve had one, yes. But what about second breakfast?”

[Aragorn just walks away]

Merry: “I don’t think he knows about second breakfast, Pip.”

Pippin: “What about elevensies? Luncheons? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper?”

17) One thing I like in this film that was unfortunately lost in The Hobbit films is the reliance on practical creature makeup. ESPECIALLY with the Orcs. I could theoretically walk down the street and see an Orc because it was actors in REALLY elaborate makeup. They felt real, grounded, even though they’re fantasy creatures. In prefer that to CG.

18) Holy shit, I just realized that these are the trolls from The Hobbit.

(GIF source unknown [if this is your GIF please let me know].)

19) Liv Tyler as Arwen

Originally posted by livtylerspam

Unfortunately, there are only three really significant female characters in the entire trilogy (Arwen, Galadriel, and Éowyn) and they never interact with each other. Fortunately, they’re all pretty awesome. You understand just how important she is from her very first frame. Like other elf actors like Hugo Weaving and Cate Blanchett, Tyler does a good job conveying Arwen as something a little more than human. A little more evolved. Although I wish Arwen did more in terms of fighting during the trilogy, the audience is made to understand that she is not only competent but dangerous. Her first moment in the film she puts a sword to Aragorn’s throat after sneaking up on him (ah, flirting) and she easily tricks the nine Ring Wraiths into a watery (if temporary) demise. I just wish we’d had more of her fighting or interacting with other women.

20) Much like The Shire, Rivendale has a palpable sense of peace and safety to it which relates to a strong sense of place. You get a taste for elf culture as the film allows the audience (and its characters) to slow down and get their wits about them.

21) Hugo Weaving as Elrond.

Weaving is a remarkably talented character actor who is great in this part. As mentioned before, he is able to make the elf leader seem a little more than human. A little wiser, a little more evolved. He is very controlled which suggests a great amount of power behind him. You understand his concerns, his fears, his love for his daughter, his duty to his people, all through Weaving’s performance. He is just really great in the part.

22) There is a strong immediate juxtaposition between the more ambitious Boromir and the cautious Aragorn in their very first scene with each other. They don’t even really talk to each other but you understand what makes them different IMMEDIATELY.

23) I really like Aragorn + Arwen because we understand that there is not only a deep love between them but a great respect. They see each other as equals and in their scenes together are consistently honest, respectful, and compassionate. It’s just a great relationship.

24) The Council of Elrond

This scene is just dripping with such juicy and interesting conflict. It is defined by such a unique culture clash between elves, men, and dwarves which escalated so wonderfully. All these different people with different ideologies and motivations fighting amongst themselves, including our first encounter with Gimli and Legolas’ blossoming fun conflict. It’s just awesome!

24.1) Ah yes, The Lord of the Memes.

Originally posted by lotrdaily

24.2) I could talk about why Frodo is such a great hero, why he’s the one who takes the ring, but instead I will refer you to this excellent meta that’s been going around Tumblr.

24.3) I love Elrond’s sass face when Sam shows up, then his look of utter surprise when Merry & Pippin show up to his super secret council meeting.

24.4) And finally.

Elrond: “You shall be the fellowship of the ring.”

25) The way Bilbo freaks out when the ring is once again so close to him, when that evil tempts him, is so telling of just how dark this item of power is.

Originally posted by diablito666

26) There are a number of small moments in this film which gets you invested in the group dynamic of the fellowship, making its dissolving at the end of the film all the more powerful. One of the earliest examples of this is when Boromir teaches Merry & Pippin how to handle swords before it devolves into a friendly row.

27) John Rhys Davies as Gimli

Originally posted by princelinglegolas

Davies is a character actor who is probably most well known for his role as Sallah in Raiders of the Lost Ark (outside of this film, that is). He blends wonderfully into the part of Gimli and I think is one of the most underrated actors in the film. Davies makes Gimli fun, gruff, occasionally heartbreaking (when he weeps over his cousin Balin) with an incredible fighting spirit that allows him to steal a number of scenes. He gets more room to shine in The Two Towers than this film, but that doesn’t mean he’s not consistently great.

28) The Mines of Moria.

Originally posted by themiddle-earth

As I’ve mentioned before, this film does well to convey a great sense of place in all of its locations. The Mines of Moria are no different. As soon as we enter this place we understand the danger which lurks here. It’s threatening and frightening, marking the Fellowship’s first great challenge. You know they’re not going to come through the other side unscathed.

29) I always liked this speech.

Gandalf [after Frodo says it’s a pity Bilbo didn’t kill Gollum]: “Pity? It was pity that stayed Bilbo’s hand. Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends. My heart tells me that Gollum has some part to play yet, for good or ill before this is over. The pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many.”

30) Ah yes, the mine skirmish.

Originally posted by elderlycat

There’s a wicked sense of dangerous fun which marks this action sequence, which is potentially the best in the film. You get a sense of each character’s fighting spirit, with even the Hobbits jumping into battle passionately after they believe Frodo has been struck down. It’s just really entertaining.

31) The Bridge of Khazad Dum.

Originally posted by sabbathium

This is a scene of pure stakes. I was taught that if a character can leave a scene without being devastated, than the stakes are too low. That’s exactly what’s happening here. Gandalf can’t let the Balrog pass and destroy the quest and if the only way the Balrog doesn’t get what it wants is through death. This is why the scene is so iconic, because it’s so freaking simple. The creature design of the Balrog is absolutely amazing and Howard Shore’s score just packs a strong punch when Gandalf dies.

Because that’s the other memorable thing about this scene: Gandalf freaking dies. It’s absolutely heartbreaking even when you know it doesn’t take. This is partially because of Howard Shore’s score, but mostly because of the incredible performances the actors give while their characters grieve their departed friend. It’s just freaking great.

32) In continuing the film’s strong sense of place, the Elf Woods are very strong. There is something just a little bit off about it. It’s not the safe place Rivendale was but instead much more unsettling and mysterious. It’s otherworldly, just like its queen…

33) Cate Blanchett as Galadriel

Originally posted by tolkiensource

Cate Blanchett is - I think - the greatest actress around today. And her performance in this film is no less great, even if it is supporting. You understand her wisdom, her heart, but there is something dangerous about Gladriel that lurks just beneath the surface. You know you don’t want to get on her bad side even when all she’s doing is being kind to you. Blanchett is able to be all these things with the appearance of ease, which I think is what makes her so great. When you’re watching Cate Blanchett act, you don’t think, “Oh, that’s Cate Blanchett.” Instead, she fully immerses herself in the character and leaves any sense of ego out of it. I freaking love Cate Blanchett.

34) The moment where Boromir opens up to Aragorn is really strong for me. It’s a moment of great connection between the two, where Boromir is able to put his pride aside and actually communicate the insecurities he has. The fears. How he wants to be a great man, a great leader. And Aragorn doesn’t judge, doesn’t argue, he just listens. He makes it safe for Boromir to speak. I dig that.

35) I never got the whole “Frodo offers the ring to Galadriel and doesn’t rescind the offer when she’s obviously tempted” thing. Like every time I watch I’m just like…

Originally posted by mirkokosmos

“Frodo, put the ring back. Don’t let crazy Cate Blanchett have the ring.”

36) I’m reaching the end of the post, so I should talk about Orlando Bloom as Legolas.

Originally posted by avengers-of-mirkwood

As with the other elves I’ve mentioned, Bloom is able to make Legolas feel something a little more than human. However, he’s also the closest to human elf we’ve seen so far. There’s a bit more fear to him, he’s occasionally more brash, and just genuinely interesting. Legolas ends up having a great kinship with Gimli and is just a lot of fun to watch.

37) The scene where Boromir gives into temptation and tries to take the ring from Frodo is incredibly powerful. It largely shows how poisoning the evil of the ring is and how even good men can give into that weakness. But the fact that his last moments are regretful ones over his actions just makes his eventual death all the more heartbreaking, especially because he asks Aragorn for forgiveness.

38) The final fight with the orcs is a solid climax with some real consequences, organically splitting up the group for future installments. The action is well choreographed and fun, making the scene just genuinely interesting.

39) Ending the movie the way it does is great because it is based on one of the simplest and most important ideas in storytelling: choice. Frodo CHOSES to leave the Fellowship, Sam CHOOSES to swim after him even though he can’t swim (one of many reasons I kinda low-key ship these two). Their choices have consequences which effect the rest of the trilogy and just lets them both grow as characters. I love it.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring is an incredible start to a great film trilogy. We are introduced to Middle Earth in a great way with incredibly strong performances marking the lengthy run time. There is a great sense of epic scale to it as well as great heart, leaving the audience with a memorable adventure that feels full even though there’s more to come. All in all, just a great film.

steve rogers: living experiment

An essay about why 10/10, Steve Rogers should have probably stopped by that lab before he became Captain America.

A short list of things Steve did without actually knowing if he could do them:

  • chase a taxi going at least 40mph
  • do a running leap over an explosion and certain death to get to bucky
  • crash through a window and fall probably 20 stories with a vibranium shield to break his fall
  • get shot like three times while on his way to save millions of innocent lives
  • grab and pull down a helicopter actively trying to take off

There’s probably more but here’s all we know that Steve knows, at least in Captain America: The First Avenger. It sounds like Dr. Erskine gave Steve a crash course in super soldier serum. We only get about half a sentence of it when Steve says he can’t get drunk. His cells can regenerate at an accelerated rate–it sounds like every chemical reaction in his body is just cranked up to 11.

So basically, Steve has no fucking clue what he’s capable of until he does it.

I bet running a few exercises in that lab in Jersey is sounding pretty good right now, eh Steven?

anonymous asked:

Jinhwan June and BI reaction. They've been paired with an idol on wgm and they fall in love with her.

Jinhwan - He’d try to be as smooth as possible on the show, upping the ante by buying you little things that remind you of him, cooking you dinner, and overall just being as romantic as possible. If he knows that you like animals, he might even convince the PD of the show to let you two adopt a dog/cat/rabbit/etc. for care during filming, so that you two can bond over a mutually-owned pet. As he’ll ask you for your number one day when you two are off-camera, you can always expect cute good night and good morning texts, regardless of whether you’re filming that day or not.

Junhoe - He would totally take advantage of the fact that you’re on WGM together which means that he can do whatever romantic or touchy things he wants to without the fans freaking out or getting overly suspicious. He’ll take WGM to a whole other level; while some idols are shy about skinship even several episodes in, he’ll constantly have his arm around you, lay on your shoulder, or back hug you He’ll whine at the mere mention of another male idol, and act overly cutesy when he wants you to kiss him. In between filming, when you’re on break, he’ll continue to be touchy, so much so that you’ll eventually come to realize that he actually likes you, upon which time he’ll already have a confession prepared for you.

Hanbin - As soon as he realizes that he’s falling in love with you, he’ll begin acting really awkward during filming, jumping whenever there’s skinship and blushing the rest of the time. Sometimes, though, he won’t be able to help himself, and will kiss you shyly on the cheek before quickly pulling away upon realizing what he’s done. You’ll sense that somethings up, so when you ask him why he’s being sort of distant, his face will turn all red and he’ll stutter while trying to explain that he actually has feelings for you. 

I saw “For the Love of Spock.”  Here’s my review.


You probably know that Adam Nimoy is making a movie that’s supposed to be partly a celebration of Spock and partly a celebration of Leonard Nimoy.  It’s called “For the Love of Spock,” though he frequently refers to it as SpockDoc (“doc” is short for “documentary” here). 

He got the funding for the movie through Kickstarter, and if one backed his Kickstarter at the appropriate level, the perk is a backer-only showing, a few months before the movie actually comes out.

Those backer-only showings happened in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Boston.  (Boston isn’t that big of a city, but since it’s Leonard’s hometown, he had lots of ties here, and Boston remained special to him even 60 years after he’d left it.)  I backed the Kickstarter at the appropriate level, so my husband and I attended the Boston backer-only showing of the movie on June 27th.

Here’s a report of what we saw and what I thought of it.

Adam Nimoy had advertised the movie in his Kickstarter campaign as a documentary celebrating Spock and Leonard Nimoy, in honor of the 50th anniversary of Star Trek.  That was two-thirds of the film.  The final third was a look at the troubled relationship between Adam and Leonard.

The first third of the film – the part about Spock – was sorta fun, though I didn’t feel as if Adam shed any actual light on the subject.   There was a collection of great Spock moments – not as good as what you could find in any fan-made YouTube compilation – a few interviews with Trekkies who felt that Spock helped them in various personal ways, and a few interviews with professional scientists who appreciated Spock.   Neil DeGrasse Tyson was especially notable among the latter, for being consistently adorable, but then, he usually is. :-)

The second third of the film – the part about Leonard Nimoy – was, I thought, the best part.  We got clips of Leonard’s guest appearances in various TV shows while he was a young man, shots of him in various plays after he became famous, and some discussion of the movies he’d directed and the photographs he’d taken.  There were interviews with his older brother, Melvin, and his wife, with a childhood friend who also became an actor, and with the surviving cast members of TOS and of the reboot movies.  I had never seen Melvin before, and it was interesting to hear him talk about his little brother.

The final third of the film – the part where Adam talked about his troubled relationship with his father – blames Leonard’s devotion to his work and the consequent long hours, exhaustion, and general non-availability for Adam’s various addictions and general dissatisfaction with life.  There’s a quite a lot of that – He forced the whole family to help him answer his fan mail!  The pain! The horror! – and then it winds up with a segment whose tone is “Fortunately, Leonard eventually gave up all that acting nonsense and devoted himself to his family, as he should have all along.”

So the film has a “happy” ending, by having Leonard give up his various creative pursuits to devote himself to his family.

Bleah.

Adam says that his ex-wife – with whom he is good friends – told him that there was too much of HIM in the movie.  He asked the movie’s editor – he told us during the introduction before the film that this was a woman he hired specifically because she knew nothing about Star Trek – and she told him that putting so much of himself into the movie was a good thing.  Judged just as a movie, the editor is probably right, because the last third adds a bit of drama.  Judged as a film touted as a celebration of Spock and Leonard Nimoy, however, I’m afraid I have to agree with the ex-wife.  And even more than Adam’s injecting so much of himself into the movie, I object to his making “Give up your career and devote yourself to your family” the point or moral of the story he’s telling.

So now I’ll talk about the movie in more detail, by part:

1.  The first third of the movie is probably the best that Adam could have done, given that he wasn’t a big Spock fan.  I think someone other than Adam could have done a much better job with this, though I guess it’s not Adam’s fault that he isn’t someone else. :-)  The thing is that Adam is one of the few people who have access to all of the cast members and to Neil DeGrasse Tyson and to folks at NASA and so on.  A Spock-loving Trekkie could have written and planned a better movie about Spock, but that person wouldn’t have had the access that Adam had, and that’s rather unfortunate.  I would have loved to have seen a movie like this made by someone who had Adam’s access but who truly LOVED Spock.

The organization of the first part is along the lines of the Vulcan superpowers, so there’s a bit of “He mind-melds!  He neck-pinches!  He gives the Vulcan salute!  How cool!”  And yeah, okay, those things are cool, and there is a nod to how Spock has inspired several scientists and been a role-model and comfort to outsiders of various stripes.  It was quite reasonable, that first third.  But I didn’t feel as if it was made with real LOVE for Spock, and I didn’t feel as if it shed any light on why Spock is so compelling that any reasonably articulate Trekkie couldn’t have given us with five minutes’ thought.

There wasn’t any deeper analysis of Spock’s character beyond the scientist and outsider stuff, so we didn’t hear about all the things besides the Vulcan superpowers that make Spock such a compelling character.   Personally, I find the fact that Spock will do what he believes to be the right thing, no matter how much it costs him personally, to be one of the hallmarks of his character and one of the reasons why he’s so inspiring, but maybe that’s just me?  Like how he was willing to face the death penalty to take Christopher Pike to Talos IV in “The Menagerie,” or how he was willing to let his father die and his mother hate him to protect the ambassadors on board the Enterprise in “Journey to Babel,” and of course there’s his repairing the ship at the cost of his own life in The Wrath of Khan.

2. I have less to say about the second part of the movie.  It gave us a summary – or maybe more accurately, a collage – of Leonard’s background and life.  That was fine, though I did think it was perhaps telling that Adam left out several of the stories that show Leonard’s goodness.  He gave us the story about Leonard’s insisting that Takei and Nichols be hired for the animated series but not the ones about his getting pay parity for Nichols during TOS or about his being the only one Grace Lee Whitney felt she could trust and confide in after someone connected with the show raped her.

3.  Adam talks about his troubled relationship with his father and makes it clear that he didn’t get what he wanted from his father until the last few years of Leonard’s life.  He never tells us, though – I learned this from Shatner’s book about Leonard – that when Adam wanted to stop being a lawyer and start being a director, Leonard arranged for Adam to shadow a director on The Next Generation and essentially be tutored in the craft by a working professional, something that a person whose last name was NOT Nimoy could probably not have arranged at all, and if they had been able to arrange it, they’d have had to show some talent and training first.

Adam doesn’t seem to take the cultural standards of the time into account.  Leonard Nimoy was born one year before my own father was born; Adam is two years older than I am.  I remember the times during which he and I were raised, and the cultural standard then was that the woman raised the children and the man worked hard and supported the family.  It was considered normal, natural, and desirable for the wife to devote herself to the children and for the husband to devote himself to his career so that he could provide financial support for his family.  Nowadays, we find those attitudes sexist and limiting, and I’m glad that our cultural standards have changed.  But I think it’s unfair to judge a man for not living up to standards that didn’t exist at the time!

A reading of Leonard’s autobiographies shows that he spent an enormous amount of time and energy on his career because he needed and wanted that creative outlet.  But it also shows that during the years of the TV show, he made a huge number of personal appearances all over the country for anyone who would pay him – at a time when he was exhausted from working 12-16 hours a day on the show – in order to provide for his family while he could.  He thought that his popularity and marketability would decline after the TV show went off the air – a reasonable conclusion, given what happens to most TV actors – and he was determined to take advantage of every available opportunity while he still had them.  There was no creative outlet for Leonard in all those public appearances; he did them to support his family.

By the standards of the time, Leonard was doing the right thing and more than the right thing, was going above and beyond and working himself into exhaustion to provide for his family.

Leonard never got what he wanted and needed from his own father, or from his mother, either.  They were very invested in the success of his older brother and had less attention for him, plus they never understood either his ambition to be an actor or the show that made him a star.  Leonard’s parents disappointed him at least as much as Leonard disappointed Adam … and Leonard went on to become a great man.  Not just a great actor, though he was that, but a man whose intimates (except for Adam) all talk about his goodness, kindness, and generosity.

Although the movie certainly wasn’t all bad and in fact had some lovely moments, overall I thought that Adam Nimoy made a rather self-indulgent film.  Of course, the poor guy did lose his father recently, so one can forgive a certain amount of self focus … but this isn’t the movie I thought I was funding, and I was heartsick at the “moral” Adam gave us.

Do you want to see the film?  Yeah, you probably do.  But you’ll probably enjoy it more if you go in with lowered expectations.


Oh, and here’s my husband at the preview:

Imagine: Chris’ reaction when you tell him you’re pregnant after trying for months.

{ Requested by: Anon }


Their relationship seemed to be hanging by a thread.

She and Chris wanted a baby and had wanted one for so long but as much as they tried to conceive, it just didn’t happen.

She and him started growing apart in silence, pretending everything was fine but they were just keeping the pain to themselves. She thought she was not destined to be a mother and Chris blamed himself thinking he was sterile but both suffered in silence.

“Maybe you’re just stressing too much about it”. Her mother had said. “Things happen when you least expect it”. a friend told Chris.

Chris was starting to feel depressed. Getting out of bed was getting harder and harder when he wasn’t working but he managed to do it for her sake and to avoid questions.

They stopped trying for a whole month and started again but it seemed useless.

They had sex one last time before Chris got on a plane and left to film another movie. She never called to give him any good news during those 2 months so he knew he’d come home defeated.

Chris opened the door to their apartment and left his suitcase and backpack by the door.

-Babe, i’m home! -He yelled but got no answer.

He walked into the bedroom, patting the wall to find the light switch.

-Babe? -He exclaimed turning on the light.

Chris stiffened and his blood ran cold.

He walked towards the bed, his fingers trembled slightly as he reached out.

-Hi. -She said standing at the door.

Chris turned around with widened eyes.

-Is this…? Does it mean what i think it means? -He asked.

She bit her lip and smiled while nodding.

Chris looked at the tiny New England Patriots bodysuit in his hands and then at the woman he loved.

-It’s happening! -He yelled before running towards her and kissing her.

He knelt down in front of her and lifted her shirt enough to reveal her stomach. He looked at it as it was a magical object and caressed it as if it was already round.

She looked down at him and chuckled .

Chris kissed her stomach.

The couple had finally gotten their wish and would become parents.

Exo’s reaction to you (gf) having a kissing scene in your drama!

XIUMIN: He would be pretty jelous but would try and mask it and keep telling himself it’s just a drama. 

“It’s okay Minseok, it’s just a drama, she’s a good actress!”

SUHO: Suho would be similar to Xiumin, except he would just be staring at the screen trying to wrap his head around the whole thing.

LAY: Lay being the cute unicorn he is would be a confused, cute unicorn. He’d be wondering why you’re kissing someone other than him, but when he finds out it’s just a drama he’d not mind. 

Originally posted by secrethideoutme

BAEKHYUN: Baekhyun would mind the scene but he wouldn’t tell you, instead he’d be teasing you telling you that your acting was quite “disappointing” 

Originally posted by tipannies

CHEN: Chen, ahh he would be nagging you about it all day and night going “He doesn’t kiss better than me right Jagi?” 

Originally posted by kyungsoo-squishy

CHANYEOL: Yeollie wouldn’t mind so much as he is an actor himself, so he’d understand but he’d probably be laughing or shutting his eyes during the scene. 

Originally posted by dibidibi-disrespectful

KYUNGSOO: D.o probably won’t mind at all because he is an actor too so he would understand it’s just a drama and it’s only scripted, but that doesn’t mean he likes some guy other than himself kissing his girlfriend.

Originally posted by kaisooshipper

KAI: Kai would wait till he gets you home to show you what “Real kissing” is, other than that, he’d be a good boy about it throughout the whole film. 

Originally posted by bikons

SEHUN: The brat would be saying how he could do better, or maybe how you could at least look decent whilst kissing the guy. Lets face it, Sebrat would be sooo sassy about it all.

My darling anon,

I’ve gotten rather behind on asks with how busy I’ve been lately, but I was catching up on my inbox last night and saw this, and I had to reply because I have actually been screaming internally over that same thought for ages, but I felt too embarrassed to bring the topic up since my thoughts on the topic are so extra and trashy… But if you’re the one bringing it up, my darling anon, I am absolutely here for a conversation about this freaking practice video and Youngjae’s extremely rude flirtation with Jaebum the camera!!

I mean, okay. First of all, who gave him the right??? Like, while seeing Youngjae winking and/or sticking out his tongue flirtatiously is relatively rare, he’s definitely done it before. ( x x x ) Even in the Just Right practice video, he pulled a winking tongue move!

It’s just that oftentimes, in my opinion, the feel of the gesture is a bit different?? Usually the way he does it comes across as more playful and childishly teasing, and even in Just Right it’s more of a cutesy tease than… well, whatever he’s doing in the If You Do video. And I can’t help thinking of a rather significant difference: Im Jaebum is behind the camera for one of them…
