bellamy & clarke; from script to screen (x) ;; aka that time when the writers underlined and capitalized the word ‘they’ in the script to show that, even if clarke might believe it, bellamy refuses to accept that she no longer belongs with him and their people 

Connecting dots

Hey guys! In light of the new info we got from the databank, i decided to bring together a few things featured in the novelization, in the commentary and sometimes the movie script. Personally, i’m very happy with the consistency between all the canon sources, which makes me believe that there won’t be any lazy plot twists. Before i start, two points:

  • Kylo Ren biography:

Now calling himself Kylo Ren, he served the First Order’s Supreme Leader Snoke. Neither Jedi nor Sith, Kylo used the pain of his emotional conflict to fuel his extraordinary powers, and dedicated himself to destroying the last traces of the Jedi tradition.  

  • Kylo Ren biography (cont.):

Kylo swore his loyalties were only to Snoke. But he was intrigued when he captured Rey, a Jakku scavenger whose Force abilities were raw but very powerful. A mysterious connection seemed to link the two.

This supports what i said here, Kylo indeed uses his pain and conflict to fuel his powers. Plus, the context is rather curious because it sounds like Kylo started questioning his loyalty to Snoke when Rey came into picture. I also stated before that maybe when Kylo offers himself to be Rey’s teacher, he wasn’t including Snoke in his plans. A little bit of validation is always good, right?

Let’s begin:

Kylo Ren biography: 

Landing on Takodana, Kylo confronted the young woman who’d escaped from Jakku with BB-8 – and found himself puzzled by a strange connection he felt with her. Resistance X-wings drove the First Order’s forces away before BB-8 could be found, but Kylo took the young woman, Rey, into custody.

TFA novelization (page 182):

Having circled her, he moved even closer, peering into her face, her eyes. Then the red lightsaber he held came up: close to her flesh, close enough to cast a red glow on her skin.
“Something.” He sounded mystified. “There is something…Who are you?”

Movie commentary: 

And he (Kylo Ren) is letting go of the droid as his goal, and he’s focusing just on her (Rey). And clearly, you think, he can just extract the information he wants now, but because he’s taking her you get the sense there might be something else going on here.

Part 2

Kylo Ren biography:

Speaking with his captive, Kylo removed his mask, revealing his surprisingly young face, and used his powers to dig into Rey’s mind. But both captor and captive were surprised when Rey found herself able to sense Kylo’s own thoughts¹ – including his conflicts and doubts. When Snoke requested Kylo’s presence, he donned his sinister mask and left Rey in her cell. Sneering at Kylo’s weakness, Snoke ordered his apprentice to bring Rey to him².

Rey biography:

Kylo interrogated Rey, using his Force powers to dig into her mind. He uncovered her feelings of loneliness, and the fact that she’d come to see Han as a father figure. But to the surprise of both, Rey found Kylo’s own mind open to her as well¹. She saw that the seemingly fearsome warlord was vulnerable, filled with conflict and pain.

Movie script¹:

THEY’RE BOTH SURPRISED: they react to a feeling that passes
between them – AN ENERGY THEY RECOGNIZE IN EACH OTHER.

TFA novelization² (page 207):

The Supreme Leader’s voice was flat. “You have compassion for her.”
“No—never. Compassion? For an enemy of the Order?”
“I perceive the problem,” Snoke intoned. “It isn’t her strength that is making you fail. It’s your weakness.

Part 3

Movie commentary:

1. This is the moment of course where Kylo Ren learns about Rey. And now, these two disparate pieces come together. 
2.  One of the new relationships that we were focusing on was between Kylo Ren and Rey. They’ve never met but he’s heard of this girl.

TFA novelization (page 251):

“It is you,” Ren murmured.
His words unsettled her: Not for the first time, he seemed to know more about her than she did about herself.

Bonus: 

Kylo Ren biography:

But Rey took up Skywalker’s saber. Rejecting Kylo’s invitation to show her the ways of the Force, she attacked him – and Kylo found he was no match for her power and rage. Rey defeated him, and Kylo escaped Starkiller Base before its destruction. He sensed his destiny and Rey’s were somehow intertwined, but how?

Rey biography:

She rejected this call to destinybut was captured by the dark side warrior Kylo Ren, with whom she shared a strange connection. 

Another curious “but”, if i may say. 

Feel free to add anything that i forgot to mention.

Lend us your help, and we will do whatever must be done to move Nassau forward.

I am intrigued by your proposal. But there is one question remaining that you will have to show me you can adequately answer. What will you do when the cat fights back?

anonymous asked:

Clary/Magnus is one of my favorite brotps from the show, but in the last episode I really disliked their scenes because of how Clary is being written. The way she talked to Dot, and later to Magnus when they were at the Institute was a no for me. I hope they don't keep that up because I would love to see more of Magnus and Clary

i used to like them too but she’s been written as incredibly callous and disrespectful and selfish with……….literally everyone and it’s frustrating because every time she’s in a scene with someone i just don’t care anymore since I know it’s just going to be about them propping her up at the expense of all logic/characterization/sympathy.

Coming To Terms With 'Beauty And The Beast' And The Imperfect Feminism Of Disney
How Belle laid the groundwork for today's badass cartoon heroines.

I was quoted a few times in this, though honestly I think my actual viewpoint is more toward the center - unfortunately it was just the more extreme sounding quotes used here, oh well 😂 maybe I will write more about it here later.

Ignoring that, you might find this an interesting piece. Doesn’t cover everything, but it covers a fair amount and has some new info on the making of the movie. 

“Woolverton’s fight to shape Belle into a new kind of Disney heroine was just that — a fight, every step of the way,” wrote Time’s Eliza Berman in May 2016. Her scripts took almost jaw-droppingly retrogressive rewrites:

In one scene, for example, Woolverton wrote Belle sticking pins into a map of all the places she wished to travel. By the time it got to storyboarding, Belle had been rewritten into a kitchen, decorating a cake. Woolverton protested, and the compromise that was reached had Belle with her nose in a book, a pastime at first considered too passive to be compellingly animated, which is why she always walks as she reads.

I’m heartbroken. She was such an important lady; for her acting and immortality and space royalty, her script polishing on so many wonderful films, for her oh so very important openness about her mental health issues, her personality and strength and humour and light and generosity heaped on so many. She’s completely irreplaceable. Goodnight, space mom ❤

HOW TO DEFEAT CYBERBULLIES

Okay so I have a friend who was getting cyber-bullied was in a situation in which she could not block them and I didn’t know what to tell her. THEN I CAME UP WITH THE MOST AMAZING IDEA I HAVE EVER HAD, PLEASE EVERYONE REBLOG THIS. So I told her to copy and paste the bee movie script into her messages and just respond with the script if they ever said anything mean. Next time they said something rude, she responded with the bee movie script. The guy said something along the lines of ‘what the fuck’ and then read through some of it saying ‘did you seriously fucking send me the bee movie script?’. Then, guess what she did. She sent the script again. The guy stopped talking. SOLUTION HAS BEEN FOUND. Every time someone sends you hate or is mean, respond with the bee movie script.

From the script for the undone musical “Sappho” episode titled “Last Dance,” written by the amazing Melissa Good.

The whole premise of the episode being that Xena and Gabrielle get commissioned by Aphrodite help a couple of couples find love again, including Sappho (played by Renee) and her partner Morai (played by Lucy). X and G go to the island of Lesbos posing as their lookalikes while Aphrodite has sent Sappho and Morai away on a romantic vacation.
Things get a little complicated when Sappho and Morai return and the classic Xena lookalike chaos ensues, now doubled with Gabby also having a twin of her own.
In the dramatic final act, our soulmates share a very beautiful moment in the form of a deep, sincere and passionate kiss.

Please tell me why this episode was never made?

And also, if the reboot doesn’t bring this script back somehow, maybe sans the lookalikes and have Renee and Lucy playing the older Sappho and Morai?
