he's my favorite star wars character

I think one of my favorite stories I’ve ever heard Mark Hamill tell is the one about how the first time he heard the score for A New Hope he got sort of jokingly offended because it seemed like every other character had a specific song for them and he didn’t and John Williams just looked at him and said “…The main theme is your song” and Mark was like “WHAT OMG” like he didn’t actually understand before that moment that he was the protagonist.

  • someone: you can tell a lot about someone from their favorite fictional characters!
  • me, nervously shoving all of my sarcastic trashbag characters with daddy issues and poor decision-making skills out of sight: um

@zsaszmatazz tagged me to do the “six movies I can watch any time” meme (LIKE 10 YEARS AGO I’M SORRY) so here goes!

1. Road to El Dorado

Don’t tell me you can’t also watch this whenever. It’s lolzy, it’s feelsy, and it’s the source of one of my three OT3s. If Miguel/Tulio wasn’t allowed to be canon, I’m making Miguel/Chel/Tulio my headcanon dammit. Fight me.

The story is a fantastic adventure every time. The music is amazing, the animation is GORGEOUS. The jokes are funny no matter how many times I hear them. “Stars.” “Holy ship.” “Apparently ‘El Dorado’ is native for GREAT… BIG… ROCK.” 

And don’t get me started on the armadillo. Is that thing a spirit guide? A god? Probably. I’m for it.

2. Chicken Run

I consider this one a guilty pleasure. Again, always a funny, fun adventure. Just serious enough to balance out the lolz. And Ginger is one hell of a snarky character. I love that she’s simultaneously mom friend and rebel friend.

Also, it’s that claymation Wallace and Gromit animation, which is just… nifty! I always find myself watching certain characters move, checking out different textures, especially with Babs and her knitting. Just… excellent.

Also, also this:

3. Stardust

What can I say about this movie? Well…

I was based on a book written by my favorite author, Neil Gaiman, is a fantastic adventure that addresses the line between magic and non-magic worlds and includes such fun things as evil witches, falling in love, warring princes, falling stars, unicorns, ghosts, and sky pirates in drag (which Neil said he’s pretty sure he didn’t write, but it’s such a good scene you guys).

I am always happy by the end of it. The growing-up story is so good. And Tristan kind of bumbles through it like I totally believe I would were I thrown into a story like that. It’s just… such a satisfyingly complete and fun story, and I love it every single time.

4. Megamind

Shut the hell your mouth this is the best villain-to-hero story I know. I am always so proud of Megamind. Like, real talk, how often does our favorite adorable villain get the girl? How often do we get to see the bumbling bad guy actually get a cool-ass happy ending? And the emotional journey he goes on gets just serious enough without killing the funny vibe the whole movie carries.

The writing is tropey, but in a way that totally plays on those tropes while making fun of them. Trope-ception is my favorite trope. And I love, love, LOVE the design choices. This movie is so colorful, and the proportions are so over the top. It’s just a visual salad. 

And, as always, the jokes are good no matter what. I don’t think I’ll ever get over, “And I love you, random citizen!” This movie is such a fun time, please go watch it.

5. Strange Magic

Have you heard of this movie? Well, now you have. Please go watch it. 

Much like Megamind, Strange Magic got pushed to the back burner by more popular movies coming out at the same time. And that’s just a shame, because it’s just so good.

It’s a jukebox musical with reenactments of all sorts of songs, all of which are brilliant (half the time because Evan Rachel Wood My Queen is singing them, but also Alan Cumming, and sometimes they sing together and I die). The story is predictable, but the characters are what make it for me. They’re fun enough that even though I saw the end coming a mile away, it was nothing but enjoyable watching them get there.

This fandom is also dear to my heart. It’s full of some of the sweetest people with some of the most interesting fan fiction that I’ve ever read. When I think good writing, I think @abutterflyobsession who has made me cry on more than one occasion, and @jaegereska whose lore and OCs add so much to the world beyond the movie. 

Major draws: good music, lovely animation, self-confidence story, princess with a sword, SWEET SWEET VENGEANCE, and did I mention singing by Evan Rachel Wood, Alan Cumming, and Kristin Chenoweth? Bruh.

6. Labyrinth

My favorite movie for now and always. Set it at the bottom for full effect. Get ready.

First off, music by David Bowie that is fuckin’ catchy as heck. If you don’t want to at least tap your foot along to ‘Dance Magic Dance’ you’re lying. ‘As the World Falls Down’ was the first song I remember wanting to know the lyrics to. 

Side note: If you didn’t think the Fireys were creepy as fuck, you’re also lying.

There has never been so much glitter in one place ever. The visual gags are always funny. Like, there are Bowie faces I still can’t find to this day hidden in the scenery??? The muppets are all adorable because Brian Froud is amazing, and I want a pet goblin. Everything is just so much fun to look at. Don’t even get me started on the ridiculous fantasy fulfillment that is the ballroom scene. I just. 

The jokes are always funny because they run on a dry sense of humor like mine. “Well, come on feet.” One I missed for years. “No, that’s the dead end, behind you!” Ha, hubris. “It’s a piece of cake!” Shut up, Sarah…

But you also can’t not love the characters? Like, come on, who doesn’t wanna hug Ludo just a little. And Didymus, the fox knight that rides a fuckin’ tiny dog into battle?? And Hoggle who collects jewelry and pretends to be bitter as hell but cares so much??? Heck off, they’re all awesome.

Fave movie. Always.

Honorable Mention: Big Fish

Added this one because I can watch this any time, but it always makes me cry, so I usually save it for when I need a good cry. (Srsly, @may10baby can vouch, I once tried to explain the end to her and started sobbing in the car).

It’s just such a cool story. We get to see the life of the father as told through his own hyperbolic stories, which include a star-studded cast playing funny scenes in between serious family time. And the end… christ, it’s just such a satisfying ending. Such a good play on storytelling and what it can mean to people. Which, as a writer, means a lot to me.

Also, it’s the only Tim Burton movie I’ve seen that doesn’t look like… that. You know. How Burton movies look. Helena Bonham Carter plays like 3 different people, and none of them are Mrs. Lovett. That’s a feat, honestly.

I’ve said this about a few of these, but please watch this movie.

[translation] Ceci 2017 September Issue - Individual Interview: NCT DREAM

Mark: Recently I keep wondering, it is more difficult than expected to keep to ones’ words. Sometimes I will unconsciously say something, I end up having to take responsibility for what I said. I want to become someone who can be responsible for my words. I observe the charms of characters who have different characteristics from me. For example The Winter Soldier in “Captain America”, is someone cold with a scarred past. Gary from Spongebob is lazy and doesn’t care about the surroundings, so I like them very much. Because I am unable to archive that. I’m the heodang (perfect yet clumsy?) of NCT DREAM. But Haechan says I have a slight resemblance to Doraemon, like I’m a main character who is able to take out some magical tools from my little pocket. I take good care of the members but sometimes I come off as a klutz.

Renjun: When people mention NCT DREAM, the words “young” and “cute” naturally comes out. There is no need to become mature immediately. I think it’s important to naturally witness our growth. Compared to Korean, it’s more comfortable to speak in Chinese, so I tend to fail badly when I try to joke around with the members. However, that does not mean I don’t have any sense of humor. I think I’m very funny. Some of the elder brothers have set good examples I want to follow. I want to become someone who is objective, clean and honest, so that people will find me cool. My favorite place in Seoul is Moomin Cafe. I love Moomin a lot, it’s white and pretty. I wish to buy over Moomin Cafe next time.

Haechan: When I was younger I didn’t really listen to my parents. My parents told me I will get suntanned don’t go outdoors to play, but I just had to go against them by playing soccer at the field. Maybe that is why I feel connected to Crayon Shin-chan, and it’s the only manhwa I have been reading consistently since I was young. As I work with various people, I hope to become someone who is trustworthy at work, no matter on stage or on usual days. I hope people who know me would be able to believe in me, needless to say for our members. I love bringing smiles to people. I call myself a mood maker right. I also like the Joker from “The Dark Knight”, compared to the main character I think the real Dark Knight is the Joker. I wish to cosplay as The Joker for Halloween.

Hayden Christensen’s performance as Anakin Skywalker is underrated

This post is something that I’ve been thinking about for a long time, and something that I finally need to get around to sharing with other people. I should have done this immediately after re-watching the first three episodes with Nannette while things were still fresh, but instead, I’m doing it almost a year later. I don’t remember exactly all the details or specific examples, but I’ll try my best. Maybe I’ll come back and edit this after I watch them again. Anyway…

Hayden Christensen did an incredible job with Anakin Skywalker. Before you stop reading because there’s no possible way I could be right, hear me out; maybe I’ll change the way you see his acting performance in Star Wars: Episodes II and III.

The biggest complaint I hear about Christensen’s performance as Anakin Skywalker is that he is stiff, delivering his lines awkwardly and playing his role mostly devoid of emotion. It just doesn’t seem good enough or realistic. I think that this could have been a deliberate choice by Christensen because of who Anakin is and because of what life and circumstance has shaped Anakin into being.

Anakin is an incredibly emotional character. He thinks with his heart instead of logic, often following through on impulsive actions brought on by those emotions. Anakin’s intense feelings are prevalent in many scenes: he is worried about and seeks power to protect his mom and Padme, he murders an entire Tusken village after learning about the death of Shmi, he is angered and upset that the council won’t make him a Jedi master, and pretty much any other scene involving Padme, like when Padme falls out of the gunship in Episode II and Anakin almost risks expulsion from the Jedi Council by going after her instead of working to end the war. This emotion is heavily contrasted by Obi-wan’s desire to adhere to their duty and think logically.

In fact, it’s this emotional driving force Anakin possesses that makes most of the Jedi Council worried about him. Anakin is out of place among the Jedi. The literal first line of the Jedi code is: “There is no emotion, there is peace.” This is where Christensen’s acting comes into play. Anakin is uncomfortable under this restriction, and that’s why he seems so robotic at times. Anakin is an incredibly emotional person under serious pressure by everyone in his life (except Padme) to stop being emotional. His humor even evolves into the monotone, deadpan sarcasm that is seen with Obi-wan. He’s working so hard at suppressing his emotions that he’s forcibly correcting his speech tones and gestures. This is incredibly in character and a wonderful performance given by Christensen.

The stiffness and awkwardness with which Christensen delivers some lines and acts some scenes is no mistake. It’s deliberate, and it’s incredibly well done. This is obvious when contrasted with Anakin’s emotional scenes where Christensen acts with passion. It’s even further evidenced as Anakin stops his efforts to smother his emotions and becomes Darth Vader. From his appointment to Lord Vader until his famous duel with Obi-wan he is free from the constraints on his emotions. We see a harrowed man who hasn’t quite realized the extent of his actions wipe out the younglings. We see a caring, concerned and loving man check on Padme to make sure she’s safe and that she isn’t aware of what he has done to protect her. We see an angry man confront his brother and teacher in a blinding rage. We see the emotion that he’s been hiding the rest of the time.

Christensen’s performance is resonating and undeniably impactful during the final moments leading up to the conclusion of Episode III. It doesn’t make any sense that that same conviction and heart wouldn’t appear throughout all of Episode II and III unless there was a reason that Anakin would be forcing himself to hide it. The Jedi Order itself was that reason, and the stiffness and awkwardness that is Anakin (barring the emotional scenes where his feelings come out) has some deep meaning to it. Next time you want to drag Christensen for his performance, take a moment to think why the character would be portrayed that way. Christensen did a wonderful, incredibly underrated job with his role as Anakin Skywalker.

TL;DR: Anakin is an incredibly emotional character forced into hiding and suppressing those emotions by the Jedi Order and Code. This is why Hayden Christensen’s performance may seem stiff and awkward at times. The awkwardness is purposeful and his performance is incredibly underrated.

Disclaimer: Anakin is my favorite character in the Star Wars universe, so this may just be me grasping at straws trying to justify what people say is a subpar performance from Hayden Christensen. However, I feel like I’ve given this analysis objective treatment and truly believe that he deserves more praise for what I consider to be an incredible job portraying such an interesting and deep character.

I don’t understand the hate for Ron Weasley. He is a lovable guy with a lot of heart, a good head on his shoulders, and a lot of loyalty to his friends. People criticize him for leaving, but Han Solo left as well, and ended up rescuing the hero at the last moment. He, unlike Ron, was not under the influence of a Horcrux, and has no excuse for his dickish behavior in A New Hope. Also, people arguing that Ron and Hermione’s bickering is abusive have obviously never seen Star Wars. Ron critics only see the bastardized movie version, where they made him comic relief and gave the best lines to Hermione and Harry. Ron is, and will always, remain my favorite character.

The nice thing about writing redneck space pirates is I get to over-deploy “fucking,” my favorite word in the whole of the English language. I love Star Wars so much, but there’s just something about the literature in that fandom that prevents me from really salting up the obscenities when I write in it. Maybe it’s from reading too many PG-rated EU novels, I don’t know. Anyway, here are my headcanons regarding the GOTG characters and how they use “fuck”:

Yondu: Pretty casual about his usage of it, it’s basically just another space-filler on par with “um” and “uh.” When he gets mad, it’s every other word. If he gets really mad and can’t go straight to whistling for some reason, he starts spitting obscenities with no Common equivalent that the translator doesn’t have on file, and which are assuredly far more filthy.

Kraglin: Also pretty casual, but has a tendency to drawl it out in a way that really catches the ear. Sounds like he’s really relishing it in his mouth before that final “ck”. It’s less of a space-filler for him and more of an entire self-contained sentence or sentence clause.* Like Yondu - and really, any other Ravager - he’ll say it with great deliberation and frequency if he notices someone looking uncomfortable about it.

Peter: Uses it shamefully little for a former Ravager - this is a bit of a hangover from a childhood growing up surrounded by religious Midwesterners. In his teens he went a bit overboard as part of his rebellious phase, but never quite achieved the poetic artistry with which Kraglin, Tullk and even Yondu used it, and it started dropping out of his speech as the novelty wore off. Now it mostly comes out as a quick exclamation when he’s frustrated.

Gamora: Almost never says it. Thanos provided an extensive education for his children, which included a healthy dose of class-based language prescriptivism, as he wished for them to regard themselves among the elite of the galaxy even as they served him. Obviously she’s working to throw off the trappings of everything he taught her, and she’s been around the galaxy a time or two since then, but it’s just not part of her habitual vocabulary. All of which means on the vanishingly rare occasions when the word “fuck” leaves Gamora’s mouth, everyone pays attention. 

Nebula: Even more elitist about it than Gamora, but she’s learned the art of weaponizing her words, to go with the weapons that are her mind and body. When she says “fuck,” it’s loaded with nigh-palpable venom.

Rocket: If he could communicate using nothing but the words “fuck,” “fuck you,” and “go fuck yourself,” and “motherfucker,” he would. I mean, Bradley Cooper clearly voiced him with a New York accent. So there you go. He might modulate it around Baby Groot, but old habits die hard.

Drax: Doesn’t say it unless he is literally referencing the act of copulation, and even then he’s more likely to use more precise terms to describe it.

Groot: All the fuckin’ time.

Baby Groot: Gradually learning to say it, as we know.

Mantis: It’s not in her vocabulary. This is going to change in the near future.


*Not even death would tear the admission from him, but Yondu enjoys watching Kraglin cuss out lower-ranked Ravagers, swindling shopkeepers, and duplicitous clients, far too much for his own peace of mind. Something about the way profanity elongates and stretches in Kraglin’s mouth, acquiring new vowels and creative pronunciations in the heat of the moment. It’s good for him.

this specific facial expression made by Finn was the EXACT moment I realized he was going to be one of my favorite characters in Star Wars of all time and he’s still quite literally #2 (second only to leia) with ONE FILM under his belt and I think about that every time I rewatch this specific scene. fucking reality bending relieved smirk.

“…his eyes taking every corner of the crashed vessel, looking for-he wasn’t sure. Something recognizable, perhaps. There was nothing in the deserted cockpit, but he delayed leaving anyways, settling down in the pilot’s seat. Something…”

Anyone else wish they would’ve kept this scene in the movie? This was probably my favorite Kylo moment in the book. Then again it probably would’ve given away too much about his character too soon.

Tom Hiddleston Is Surprised His Loki Gig Has Lasted So Long
Best known for portraying Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) mischievous half-brother Loki in Marvel [...]

Best known for portraying Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) mischievous half-brother Loki in Marvel Studios’ ever-expanding cinematic universe, Tom Hiddleston is surprised by the length of his tenure as the Asgardian demigod.

“Every time I play Loki, the challenge is to find new ways of playing him,” the English actor shared with TOI. “It is a source of constant surprise to me that I’m still here. I never expected that when I started playing him. I feel a huge responsibility to deliver the character people know, even though it’s been four years since I last played him, and also to try to take him in new directions.”

Hiddleston has inhabited the role since 2011’s Thor, one of the earliest Marvel Studios productions. He would again return to menace Thor and his new found superhero team as the lead antagonist in 2012’s The Avengers, reprising the role again in the first Thor sequel, 2013’s Thor: The Dark World. Since then, Hiddleston has taken leading roles in Hank Williams biopic I Saw the Light, crime drama mini-series The Night Manager, gothic horror Crimson Peak and monster blockbuster Kong: Skull Island, but Loki will make his grand return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a one-two punch, starring in Thor: Ragnarok this November before returning again in Avengers: Infinity War out May 2018.

Describing Loki as a “mercurial” character — his true motivations are often known only to himself, and the misguided schemer has large potential for both good and bad — Hiddleston explained the intrigue surrounding the fan-favorite character.

“I’ve spent six or seven years of my life trying to get to the bottom of what exactly it is that he wants,” Hiddleston said. “When he seems to get close to what he wants — power, acceptance, belonging — he changes direction. I think that is the thing that keeps him interesting in a way. He’s cunning and transformative and changeable, and will do everything he can to survive. He’s the trickster. He’s the God of mischief.

"When I put on the costume, the make-up and wig for the first time for this film and looked in the mirror, I thought to myself, ‘Wow, there he is,’” Hiddleston said. “It was like seeing an old friend. It was good to see him, in a way. I feel like I know him.”

104th Squad Secrets That No One Knows About

So I got inspired to write something from one of the recent posts I saw on here that was about strange quirks and I was like “what would be the One Big Secret that the 104th nerds squad had that no one knew about? Or something” and so this mess was created :^) I hope you enjoy!!

  • Eren’s guilty music pleasure is Whitney Houston. He keeps it secret more because of how different the music tastes are from what he usually listens to and because he tries to hit every note, no matter how bad he sounds trying
  • Mikasa has the biggest sweet tooth for Cadbury eggs. She doesn’t celebrate Easter, but she will raid the shelves of a Walgreens for all the chocolate with the excuse that it’s “for my friends”
  • When Armin was younger, he ate a bug on a dare from some neighborhood bullies. Apparently, the bug was gross enough for the bullies to leave him alone for a little while
  • Jean’s favorite Disney movie is “Peter Pan"—partly because he loved the character, but also because he has had a crush on the Disneyland actor
  • Marco had a crush on Han Solo ever since he watched the original Star Wars trilogy and according to reliable sources named Jean and Connie he still has one
  • Sasha has glasses but she doesn’t like how she looks in them so she doesn’t wear them unless she’s really comfortable or her eyes hurt from squinting so much
  • Connie says he shaves his head for convenience, but he grows it out in winter and it’s beautiful and curly and flowing. He claims he “forgets” to shave it, but it’s too hot to keep in the summer and he loves the feeling of people playing with his hair
  • Reiner had an obsession with stuffed animals bc they were fluffy and nice to hug at night, but he’s either given them away to cousins or sold them throughout the years. He’s kept two from his childhood in his room: a stuffed lion named Leo and a brown teddy bear named Hershey
  • Bertolt is an amazing dancer but he thinks he’s too lanky and awkward to be graceful and magnificent but oh BOY. If no one’s looking or he’s had enough to drink then he can dance to virtually anything playing
  • Annie loves dogs but is usually good with keeping her affection quiet and private—unless there are small dogs. specifically corgis. many corgis. all the corgis. 
  • Ymir loves receiving flowers as gifts. When she receives them, no matter what type they might be, she gets really quiet and bashful and, if the person is lucky, will thank them for the flowers
  • Historia’s has an unhealthy obsession with 80s films to the point of reciting scenes word for word and imitating voices. She thinks it’s dumb so when the squad™ has movie nights and they put on an 80s movie, she has to bite her tongue to avoid embarrassing herself
  • And a bonus one: when they’re separated for a long period of time, the squad™ writes each other poems and mail them to one another. It started with Historia and Reiner as a joke, who did it because letters were typical and it was amusing to see what they could rhyme. But eventually everyone else picked it up after a while. Sometimes, they do it when they’re not even traveling, and they’ll leave little poems for someone or anyone to read. All of them have received one from everyone else, and they cherish each of them, but they aren’t brave enough to talk about it openly to each other bc they don’t want to ruin the secret and unspoken bond they have with each other
