how do you not love patty

3

I had a joy playing opposite to Gal and getting a chance to fall in love with her. Patty gave me an objective which was to flirt, make her laugh. Tumble, breathe heavily like you’re doing something physical. And I said that sounds like a plan. And, you know, Gal’s my pal. So we just goofed around and had a good time. - Chris Pine on working with Gal Gadot

“Chris is such a talented, smart, funny, funny, funny, funny guy. People don’t understand how funny he is. We had to break so many takes because he made me laugh. I felt very, very comfortable working with him.” - Gal Gadot on working with Chris Pine

Okay so I’m seeing a bunch of people complain that Zack Snyder fans are attacking any critic that praises Patty Jenkins, but from what I can tell there’s a big difference. 

If you say: “Wow I love Wonder Woman. Patty Jenkins did an amazing job with the film. Want more.”

Then there’s no reason for Zack Snyder fans to attack you or defend him and if they do then that’s messed up.

However if you say: “Wow I love Wonder Woman. Move over Zack Snyder, Patty Jenkins knows how to make a good DCEU movie. I want more.”

Then you are attacking Zack Snyder first and it makes sense to me that they would defend his movies. Contrary to Rotten Tomatoes, there are a lot of people that like Man of Steel and Batman v Superman and think Zack’s style and characterization of the DC heroes is spot on. And if you’re one of the people that didn’t like those movies, that’s okay, but there’s no reason to be negative towards Zack.

Basically Patty deserves all the praise and recognition for the film, however that doesn’t mean you should throw Zack under the bus. 

Dear Layla, 

 For nothing more than the pleasures past I would sacrifice my family, my god, and my own existence, and still you will not move. I am at the end of my mind, I cannot go back and there is nothing in tomorrow (save you) that can attract me beyond today. I have listened to the wind, I have watched the dark brooding clouds, I have felt the earth beneath me for a sign, a gesture, but there is only silence. Why do you hesitate, am I a poor lover, am I ugly, am I too weak, too strong, do you know why? If you want me, take me, I am yours…. If you don’t want me, please break the spell that binds me. To cage a wild animal is a sin, to tame him is divine.

My love is yours. 

 Eric Clapton’s letter to Pattie Boyd [x]

i’m so glad that steve trevor was written (and acted!!) the way he was, i’m so glad no one was bitter (esp patty jenkins) and wrote trevor the way male writers often write women – without putting in any thought, or as an expression of their fantasy. because steve trevor was a revolutionary of his time. he listened to a woman. he followed a woman on to a battlefield. in 2017 it’s normal (kinda??) but in the early 20th century, when WW is set, that’s REVOLUTIONARY. do you know what all we could do if there were more men like that in the world? I love the way diana was written and acted and shot and everything, but man, I love the nuance with which steve trevor’s character was handled

when i went to see wonder woman in the theatres after it finished i noticed this whole family (well all the women of the family) had come out to watch it all together and when we were all leaving they stopped at the poster and started posing and taking turns, the mom, the daughters, the grandma, all of them doing the gauntlet pose it was so pure and it reminded me of how girls dont usually have a superhero to copy poses off of for a picture in front of their poster and now we do

SoMa Week 2017 Day 6: Promise

for today I have a FANFIC, omg

It’s one of my first fics and I wrote it a year ago. It was supposed to be a one-shot, but it has 4 chapters already haha. Maybe if more people like it I could translate the rest.

Many thanks to @leslietendo for helping me with the translation and @thefishywitchy for betaing and being patient with my grammar mistakes

You can also read it in Ao3 and let’s go!, hope you like it ~

Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 | Day 4 | Day 5 | Day 6 | Day 7 |


“I love you.”

Soul raised his eyes off the magazine that he had in his hands and he looked at Maka in bewilderment, who was standing in front of him.

“What?” he asked uncertainly.

“I’ve been in love with you…” she repeated bravely “for a long time.”

They fell silent. She didn’t seem affected; in fact she was incredibly calm, something weird considering she was confessing her feelings. However, Soul got paralyzed.

He was surprised and not at the same time. He had realized the feelings of his partner for a long time, but it was an issue that neither of them had ever mentioned and that they would probably have to discuss at some point.

But he didn’t expect it to be that sudden, out of nowhere.

“Maka, I…” he looked at her sadly “I don’t feel the same for you.”

She gave him a warm smile. “I know.”

Wasn’t this the moment when girls start to cry and run away? Why was she smiling at him if he was rejecting her?

“I knew you’d say that, I was prepared to listen it,” Maka started to say as she sat at his side. “It was just that I had to tell you, I could not leave this pending for much more.”

“I’m really sorry,” said Soul looking at the ground without knowing what to do.

“You don’t have to apologize, you’ve done nothing wrong.”

“Make my partner… no, my best friend feel sad is not exactly something cool.” He could feel how Maka’s soul wave had shrunk in sorrow. She just sighed.

“I’m serious, Soul. I had accepted that you would never see me that way and I can live with that… if you see me sad it’s for another reason.”

“You are acting weird, what’s going on?”

Maka stood in silence and he felt her shiver. That put him on alert and he got scared. He had a bad feeling.

“Maka, just tell me!”

“We can’t be partners anymore.”

Epic Movie (Re)Watch #119 - Who Framed Roger Rabbit

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: DVD

1) Starting this comedy/noir film off with what appears to be an animated cartoon from the 40s is a good way of establishing tone for a few reasons. First of all it tells us what kind of toons Roger and company are. The kind that star in short after short after short like Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny, as opposed to say the Care Bears (it was the 80s, so I’m going with that example) who had a TV Show and a movie. It also introduces us to Roger, Baby Herman, the idea of ACME in cartoons, and Maroon studios. Also the film’s excellence in slapstick is there from the get go.

Originally posted by jpoxxed

2) But as soon as the cartoon is over, we’re in the “real” world. This film has a slight bit of edge to it that I wildly appreciate. Not like Martin Scorsese edge, but come on. This is a film starring animated characters that has swearing, murder, sexual innuendo galore, and an alcoholic main character. For example in the original version of the film (now edited out): after Baby Herman walks under the skirt of a female employee on set, his finger is extended upward and has some liquid on it. That is VERY adult but will go over the heads of children.

3) According to IMDb:

Joel Silver’s cameo as the director of the Baby Herman cartoon was a prank on Disney chief Michael Eisner by Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg. Eisner and Silver hated each other from their days at Paramount Pictures in the early ‘80s, particularly after the difficulties involved in making 48 Hrs. (1982). Silver shaved off his beard, paid his own expenses, and kept his name out of all initial cast sheets. When Eisner was told, after the movie was complete, who was playing the director - Silver was nearly unrecognizable - he reportedly shrugged and said, “He was pretty good.”

4) Bob Hoskins as Eddie Valiant.

Eddie is a wildly interesting character. He’s a former goofball who has kept his sharp tongue for wiseass remarks and being a pain in the ass, which is always appreciated by me. His conflict is incredibly interesting (more on that later) and he’s just a great character to follow around in this world.

Bob Hoskins is perfect for this role. I’ll go into detail on this later but his interactions with the cartoon characters look easy when they’re not, and Hoskins is able to balance the sourpuss aspect of Eddie’s personality with the wiseass, heartache, alcoholism, and former goofball in a complete package.

According to IMDb:

On the Special Edition DVD, Robert Zemeckis recounts that he had stated in a newspaper interview that Bill Murray was his and producer Steven Spielberg’s original choice for the role of Eddie Valiant, but neither could get in contact with him in time. Bill Murray, in turn, has stated that when he read the interview he was in a public place, but he still screamed his lungs out, because he would have definitely accepted the role.

I think Hoskins can’t be replaced though.

5) This film is more of a noir film than an animated fantasy. You have your archetypes like RK Maroon begin the big money slime, Judge Doom is the shady government official, and Jessica Rabbit it the femme fatale. This is felt in every aspect of the film, from the cinematography right down to Alan Silvestri’s wonderful music.

6) Remember how I said Eddie had a great conflict?

Angelo [bar patron who Eddie flipped out on]: “What’s his problem?”

Dolores [Eddie’s sort-of-girlfriend and bar owner]: “Toon killed his brother.”

Like that is such a strange idea, a murderous toon, and it provides such great conflict for Eddie. A conflict which we see laid out before us when the camera takes the time to look at all the stuff on his and Teddy’s desk. You SEE that Eddie is in pain, and without a flashback you see the guy he used to be when his brother was around. The fun goofball who liked working Toontown and helpings toons out. To go from that to where he is now takes a lot of heartbreak.

7) I love that the password to get into the Ink & Paint Club is, “Walt sent me.”

8) Daffy and Donald Duck.

Originally posted by the-disney-elite

This is the first (and to date only) time cartoon characters owned by Warner Brothers and Disney have appeared in a film together. Since the film was being made by Disney, WB only allowed to have their characters show up if the major characters had the same amount of screen time as the Disney characters. That’s why Donald/Daffy and later Mickey/Bugs always share the screen together.

As a kid THIS was my favorite part of the film! The crossover aspect. Getting to see characters interact who normally don’t. AND they got the official actors at the time to voice them. Mel Blanc voices all his Looney Tunes characters, Tony Anselmo is Donald, and Wayne Allwine is Mickey Mouse. These aren’t cheap cameos, these are the genuine articles and that’s amazing!

9) There are also some appearances by non-Disney/non-WB characters, such as Betty Boop.

Originally posted by the-disney-elite

I think the inclusion of Betty is a nice way to pay respect to the early days of studio animation, and her original voice actress was still alive at the time so she got a chance to reprise the character.

10) Jessica Rabbit.

Originally posted by adrixu

Before anything else, I would just like to point out that Jessica’s proportions are PURPOSEFULLY impossible. I think that this is done to play into the idea of her being a femme fatale, but more so even to critique some of the ridiculous bodies animated female characters have (but that last part may just be wishful thinking on my part). Kathleen Turner unfortunately does not get credit for her voiceover work as Jessica, which is a shame because she gives the character so much of her heart and intrigue. When she’s just the femme fatale Jessica’s a bit of a stereotype but by the end of the film she becomes truly interesting to me because she doesn’t just fill that role. There’s also a fan theory about Jessica I’m totally onboard with, but more on that later.

11) Robert Zemeckis’ films are marked for their incredible special effects, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit is no exception. Ask yourself: every time an animated character opens a door, or moves a desk, or splashes water, or bumps into a lamp, or (in the case of Jessica) pulls Eddie close to them by his tie and then lets him go, how did they do that on set? Because they had to! CGI is not a factor in this film. The animation is done by drawing over the film that was shot in the traditional fashion, but everything else had to be done practically on set. It’s so subtle and so natural that I marvel at it every time.

12) Okay, I love the theory that Jessica Rabbit is asexual. If you want to read the full post click the link above but here are the basic points of argument:

  • She’s in love with a rabbit because he makes her laugh.
  • She uses her body to get things she wants from people, but outside of that doesn’t she interest in anybody.
  • Her line, “I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way.”
  • Her line, “You don’t know how hard it is being a woman looking the way I do.”

The only thing that really contradicts the theory is that later in the movie Eddie says to Jessica that Roger is a better lover than a driver, to which she replies, “You better believe it buster.” But I can easily see that as her defending his loving husband side instead of any sexual prowess.

Originally posted by tvneon

13) Another thing that supports the asexual Jessica theme is that instead of her doing anything sexual with Marvin Acme, she plays Patty Cake with him. Like literally, patty cake.

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

That is a joke I did not understand as a child.

14) I haven’t talked too much about Roger’s voice actor yet, Charles Fleischer.

During filming, Charles Fleischer delivered Roger Rabbit’s lines off camera in full Roger costume including rabbit ears, yellow gloves and orange cover-alls. During breaks when he was in costume, other staff at the studios would see him and make comments about the poor caliber of the effects in the “rabbit movie”.

Fleischer’s voice IS Roger in so many ways. All he can do to deliver Roger’s heart is speak, and Fleischer’s performance in this film is not to be underwritten because it is amazing. It is full with such life, such heart, and a surprising amount of honesty. It works brilliantly.

15) You have to keep your eyes open for the little innuendos in this film. For example, when Eddie meets Jessica at the crime scene he quickly peeks down at her boobs. This is the first time I’ve ever noticed that and I’ve seen this film a lot.

16) Christopher Lloyd as Judge Doom.

Originally posted by neganomics

Director Robert Zemeckis had worked with Lloyd on their most iconic film Back to the Future (where Lloyd played Doc Brown), and now Lloyd gets to show off his villainous side. He is wonderfully and gleefully evil, showing no remorse and has a cartoon like quality which makes the bad guy work wonderfully in the role. He’s just threatening enough but also just funny enough. And Lloyd never phones it in once. It’s a fantastic performance through and through.

16.5) Can we talk about how this judge just murdered a cartoon shoe for no other reason than to show that he could and no one stopped him. Like, is the shoe technically a prop and so it doesn’t count as murder? Because that thing seems more alive than a prop!

Originally posted by horrorsoflife

17) So I talked about Roger’s voice actor but not much about Roger as a character yet.

Originally posted by 1980s-90sgifs

Roger is a pure cartoon character, and I mean that in a sort of literal sense. He’s not tainted by greed or hatred, he is pure joy and humor. A bit of a dunce but he trusts people and WANTS to see the best in them. His entire purpose in life is to make people life and that feeds every decision he makes. It’s a wonderful cartoon counterpart to Hoskins as Eddie.

18) Hoskins’ interactions with Roger is where he shines. Because remember, Hoskins was not on set with Rogers. He was looking at an empty space which would be drawn in latter. But when you watch the film he’s never looking through the space. He’s miming it excellently, he is looking AT an animated character who isn’t even there yet. It’s amazing and the key reason he excels in the role.

19) I never caught this line before.

Roger [asking Eddie for help]: “You know there’s no justice for toons anymore.”

So toons are sort of a disenfranchised minority. That’s an interesting concept. If there’s a sequel maybe they’ll play with it.

20) According to IMDb:

When Eddie takes Roger Rabbit into the back room at the bar where Dolores works to cut apart the hand-cuffs, the lamp from ceiling is bumped and swinging. Lots of extra work was needed to make the shadows match between the actual room shots and the animation. Today, “Bump the Lamp” is a term used by many Disney employees to refer to going that extra mile on an effect just to make it a little more special, even though most audience members will never notice it.

21) @theforceisstronginthegirl, this is for you:

Originally posted by i-am-the-wallflower

(GIF originally posted by @i-am-the-wallflower)

Nothing sums up Roger more than the fact that he can only get out of those handcuffs when it’s funny. It feeds into how Roger entertains all the guys at the tavern because they’re down on their luck, even though they could turn him over to Doom for a ton of cash (but they don’t). He believes in the power of laughter.

22)

Judge Doom [upon observing the record on the record player]: “‘The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down’. Quite a looney selection for a bunch of drunken reprobates.”

“The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down” is the theme to the Looney Tunes shorts.

Originally posted by cashmanny

23) The rest of the bar scene is filled with so many great cartoon gags. The fact that Judge Doom is able to lure Roger out by having him respond to, “Shave and a haircut,” is great. But a subtler reference is how Eddie gets Roger to drink the alcohol and loose control (thereby freeing himself from Doom). They go back and forth where Eddie wants Roger to drink the drink but Roger doesn’t want it, but when Eddie says Roger DOESN’T want the drink Roger says he wants it just to continue the conflict. Sound familiar?

Originally posted by americana-plus

24) Benny the cab is another fun original character added to the film, and he’s the same voice over actor as Roger!

Originally posted by gifsfrommydvds

25) I find this hysterical.

Benny [right before they’re going to hit a car]: “Pull the lever!”

Eddie: “Which one?”

Roger: “Which one?”

Benny: “‘WHICH ONE?’!?”

26) I am so ashamed of myself that I never caught the Back to the Future reference this film makes! Benny is driving down an alleyway and the evil weasels are driving straight towards him, and one of the weasels declares, “I’m gonna ram him!” Well in Back to the Future (also directed by Robert Zemeckis) Biff Tannen is about do the same thing to Marty McFly and says the EXACT same line as we get the EXACT same shot of his car!

Originally posted by egp10990

I love that.

27) Me too Roger, me too.

Roger [expecting another cartoon to play in the movie theater but it’s a news reel]: “I hate the news.”

28) When we were introduced to Roger in the opening cartoon, I was trying to dissect what made him a unique cartoon character. Like Donald has his temper tantrums, Bugs Bunny is a wise guy, and Roger I’ve discovered likes to go on tangents. Like someone will tell him to do something and he’ll talk for five minutes about how well he’ll do it even when no one is around to listen. I like that.

29) The animated bullets Eddie uses in the gun given to him by Yosemite Sam are very much in the style of Chuck Jones and I can appreciate that.

30) It’s pretty fun watching for all the animated characters the filmmakers inserted into Toontown.

31) Droopy Dog is another cartoon character who shows up despite not being owned by Disney or WB. This meant he got to show up again later in an animated Roger Rabbit cartoon.

32) When Eddie is in a Toontown bathroom there’s writing on the wall that says, “For a Good Time Call Alyson ‘Wonderland’,” but then there’s no phone number. The theatrical release DID have a phone number but it was Michael Eisner’s home phone (I think) so it was edited out for the home video release.

33) What could possibly top Donald Duck & Daffy Duck dueling pianos?

Originally posted by samuelljackson

I love everything about this. But it also gets to another agreement between WB & Disney: Disney did not want any of their characters doing anything to harm Eddie, so that’s why when he gets the “spare” from Mickey & Bugs (it’s a spare tire but he thought it was a parachute) it is BUGS who gives it to him!

Honestly it’d be awesome if Disney and WB could make more crossover cartoons. That would be pretty awesome.

34) File this one under jokes I didn’t get as a kid:

35) So Judge Doom’s end goal, his whole villainous plan, is to construct…a freeway? God, if it weren’t for the twist coming up that would’ve been so stupid.

36) Eddie’s comedy routine is great. It shows Bob Hoskins’ skill at slapstick and goofball and is just a joy to watch. Also we get this fun line:

Eddie: I’m through with taking falls / And bouncing off the walls / Without that gun, I’d have some fun / I’d kick you in the…

[bottle falls on his head]

Roger: Nose!

Head Weasel: Nose? That don’t rhyme with “walls.”

Eddie: No, but this does. [kicks Head Weasel in the balls, propelling him into a vat of Dip]

37) Doom is a toon!

Originally posted by dinosaurrodeo

This is a nice twist in the film that you can totally see was setup if you’re looking for it. Christopher Lloyd is able to play Doom with an even bigger sense of cartoony evil, and it means his end goal of a freeway isn’t so stupid after all.

38) The train that hits the dip machine at the end has a bunch of window. If you go through it frame by frame, each window depicts someone being murdered. Fun fun fun.

39) According to IMDb:

The opening track on the Sting album “…Nothing Like the Sun”, the song “The Lazarus Heart” was originally written as the movie’s musical finale, at an early stage of the movie’s production when the book’s tragic ending, where Roger is killed in the crossfire during the final duel, was still in the script. When the studio ordered its default ending to be used at the film’s end, in which Roger is alive at the end of the duel, however, the song was deleted from the script and ended up on Sting’s album instead.

40) I like that the film ends not only with the classic, “That’s All Folks,” but also Tinkerbell to let us know this was special.


Who Framed Roger Rabbit is awesome. It’s fun, funny, gives us interesting characters, has effects which stand the test of time even 29 years later, and is just a wonderful ride. Hoskins’ performance and the animation are the true standouts here, but that is not to discredit any of the other amazing aspects of the film. A true joy to watch all the way through.

ABBDKSKKNXKJHDHVS LIKE CARTOON NETWORK TALKING ABOUT RUBY AND SAPPHIRE AS A COUPLE GETS ME EVERYTIME LIKE ??????!! !!!!! IM SO HAPPY RN LIKE DO YOU REALIZE AAAAAAAAAAAH

They learned from their Peppermint Patty and Marcie picture that implied them to be ‘besties’ oh my gosh I remember that EVERYONE was tilted and made it known so now every single time theres something couple related, CN puts Ruby and Sapphire there and its great I love how they listened and actually made an effort to put em out there more!!!! so good

This random but: What’s the use of feeling blue really annoys me.

Not the song itself (which has it’s own problems, but that’s not what I am getting at), but the fact that we were told month in advance by Deedee that she was going to sing backup for a villain song. And I got really excited because I love villain songs! Having a villain song sung by a broadway like  Patti LuPone sounds awesome!

The thing is: What’s the use of feeling blue isn’t a villain song!

Like when I say villain song, I don’t mean a song sung by the villain. I mean a song where the villain sing about how much of a villain they are. Where they tell you just how evil, cunning and/or powerful they actually are, in music form.

I wanted a song where Yellow diamond sings about how she is going to do what she should have done a thousand years ago! Crush the last of the rebellion, make Rose Quartz pay for thinking she could stand against the diamonds and watch as the thousands of gems. Who gave their lives to save earth, go to waste as the cluster destroys that miserable planet!

Complete with an evil over the top laugh at the end.

I wanted Yellow diamond to have a disney villain song, not a: “I am sad that Pink diamond is gone, but I repress my emotions uwu”

I don’t know I just really wish Crewniverse would let their villains be, you know: Villains

Today in Harri History, George & Pattie Harrison attend the opening party for Apple Tailoring held at Club Arethusa, a restaurant on Kings Road,  22 May 1968. The following excerpt is from Chris O’Dell’s book, “ Miss O'Dell: My Hard Days and Long Nights with The Beatles, The Stones, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, and the Women They Loved“

“I’ve always liked sitting back & observing people, & George in particular, fascinated me. I watched him chatting with Derek & Don, his dark eyes intently focused, the thick eyebrows almost touching in the middle, and ever so often he’d look over at me & smile; I had the feeling he was reassuring me that I had nothing to fear from this group. George had this interesting way of keeping his distance from people. Occasionally his eyes would dart around the room, not so much to see what was happening, it seemed to me, but more as a self protective “don’t come any closer” look. It was almost as if he was creating boundaries with his eyes. And it worked because nobody bothered us.”

“That’s what I was thinking when Pattie Harrison appeared at the table and sat next to George, almost directly across from me. I’m afraid I stared at her for a moment in disbelief. Back in L.A. when I was thinking about moving to London, I’d sometimes play a little game in front of my bathroom mirror. I’d imagine that Pattie & I were friends, sitting in her kitchen, laughing & talking about silly things, sharing our secrets. I know this all may seem like I am making all this up after the fact, but it’s the truth — I did daydream about being friends with Pattie long before I met her, and I had other dreams that came true, too.

But this was real life. I felt stupid sitting there watching everyone else talking & interacting. I needed to start a conversation & connect with someone, if only to justify my place at the table. ‘I love the way you do your makeup’ I blurted out to Pattie. She looked confused, even a little flustered. ‘Thank you’ she said after what seemed like an eternity.Well you’re in it now, I thought. Might as well keep the conversation going. ‘Do you think you might someday show me how to do your makeup?’ I said stumbling a little over my words. Again she smiled at me, looking more amused than annoyed. Still, I was painfully aware that I was straddling a fine line between making a friend and making a complete fool of myself. ‘I’m a friend of Derek’s’ I said, ‘I just moved to London last week so I don’t know very many people. Perhaps we could get together sometime.’ I couldn’t believe my own audacity.

‘Yes’ she said, looking very queenly in her poise & stature. ‘That’s a possibility’ Well that was enough for me. I didn’t need a time, a date, or a place. All I needed was the possibility of spending an hour or two with Pattie Harrison.

The waiters were clearing the lunch plates, wineglasses were refilled, photographers & journalists jockeyed for position, & the hum of conversation died down as we turned our chairs to face the runway.”

So she’s gonna throw it all away?just like that? All the plans they made all the dreams they had , to have a family together, to get married, all the romantic gestures,the best friends they started out as and then combined it in a love story that will be in history as one of the greatest true love stories in Hollywood history… that was …so so beautiful and kind and had ups and downs at times but still loved each other at the end of the day that’s what love is ,it gets bruised and may have some scars but sometimes it gets back up again and …sometimes you just give up …. I don’t know what the future will hold but I do know …that whatever happens will happen for a reason ….and I hope for the best for them .. I’ll always remember their love story and I want a love like that in my life it’s like a rare love that everyone wants in life like the love in the movies it only happens to one in a million people in the world it’s a love that is hard to find so who ever gets that love is so damn lucky ….so lucky! You should never throw that love away it’s so damn special and priceless you don’t wanna just drop it and move on in life cause you’ll never get a love like that ever again no matter how much you try to find that special Love you won’t find it … cause you didn’t appreciate the love that was givin to you from god , god gives only a few lucky couples in life that special rare love you see in the movies and you should never take it for granted because having it is like winning the lottery , I mean you would never wanna just say I DONT WANT ALL THAT MONEY so you throw it away , you wouldn’t throw all that money away you’d keep it and never let it go .Love is hard man.. it really is fucking hard! But when you love someone so much you never wanna let them go at the slightest bit, how I put it if you love someone and there was so much love and sometimes heart break too I mean that was real love givin to you and if you just throw it all away did it really actually mean anything to you ? In reality, if you ask yourself… did you just go through all of that to just throw it all away in the end? Or stay because you went through all of that love and heartbreak but your still there because your not a quitter you’re a fighter and it doesn’t matter all the bitching , the love,the happiness,the heartbreak , you went through all of that because it doesn’t matter cause you love that person so much you’d never leave them and put them in the past if it meant something…to you … and your heart . You’re heart matters and how you feel matters .if someone tries to tell you how to you should feel screw them !they don’t know what’s inside your heart and you’re true feelings , you feel what what you feel and if people don’t accept how you are feeling inside don’t let them change how you feel cause you do you and never let anyone change you or control your life ! If you love something you go and love it and don’t care what anyone thinks not your friends , not people around you , no one you do you man!and don’t let anyone stop you ! If your pretending your life and what I mean by that is if you don’t wanna do something then don’t do it ! No one is pressuring you just don’t do it if you don’t want to ! If people are trying to control you life for you go find fucking new people ! Because you control you’re own fucking life !! If something is holding you back from getting what you love in life do t let them hold you back it’s your fucking life live it to the fucking fullest get what’s you'res ! Life is fucking short and you never know when it’ll be you’re last day , your last hour, your last minute… on the face of this earth so you live it with someone you love ! And don’t spend it fucking up your life just to make others happy . Do what makes you happy and live your life to the fullest . Everyone is blessed to be put on this earth and don’t take it for granted and live it with people you love ! Don’t waste your life pretending to feel what others are making you do , it’s your life and never ever let anyone control your life and your feelings and your heart! I believe that if your just living this life to pretend how you feel/act just to make others happy even though you realize inside you don’t love what you’re doing then I’m ashamed of you cause your taking this life for granted ! You live it ! . In that special kinda rare love there’s more love then actually heart break you might have not noticed that but with the fights and heartbreak you still love that person sigh all your heart even though you wanna kill them sometimes you still love them like mama Pattie says LOVE WINS also Love Conquers all heart break . You go and grab the person you love the most in the entire world , it doesn’t matter where they are you go and you tell them that you love them ! Life is a blessing don’t take it for granted.

Meeting His Family

Your POV — Justin’s hand stayed on my thigh the whole car ride. We were on the way to his Jeremy’s house where I was going to meet his family for the first time. His mom and Jazzy and Jaxon they were all gonna be there. I couldn’t help but feel nervous. Me and Justin have been together for about a month and a half and I guess I just want to set a good impression to his family. I’ve heard so much about them and have often been in one or two facetimes with Jax, but this was it I was gonna meet them in person, call me dramatic but he was close to his family I just wanted them to like me. Justin caught me out of my deep stare out the window breaking me out of my thoughts. “What are you thinking about babe?” He asked squeezing my thigh. “I don’t know I guess I’m just nervous I hope they like me..” I said sighing. “Don’t be silly princess, I promise you they will love you” he said grinning emphasising the word ‘love’. —– “Son you made it! This must be (Y/N) it’s so great to finally meet you honey” Pattie said as she greeted us at the door, she hugged Justin and then me after. “Hi Mrs Mallette it’s so nice to meet you” I said feeling somewhat relieved. “Darling call me Pattie” she laughed. Justin smiled at me and took my hand and brought me through to the living room where we were then greeted by Jeremy, Jazzy and Jaxon. The two kiddies ran up to Justin and jumped into his arms , “hey guys how are you doing?” He said bringing them into his chest. “We’ve missed you!” They squeaked. “Is that (Y/N)? She’s sooo pretty” They whispered still loud enough for us to hear. Jeremy and Pattie laughed. “Hello sweeties” I said walking over to them, “I’m (Y/N)” Jazzy came over and hugged my arm while Jaxon basically jumped on me and wrapped his arm around my neck. “Hey (Y/N) so are you and Justin gonna get married?!!” Jaxon said excitedly. “Ofcourse bro, she’s gonna be Mrs Bieber!” Justin winked from beside us. Jeremy walked over and greeted Justin and then brought me into a hug. “So you’re the girl Justin hasn’t stopped talking about” He smirked. “Welcome to the family (Y/N). — A short while after I was playing Wii with Jazzy and Jaxon while Pattie watched and laughed. I could lowly hear Justin and Jeremy who were preparing dinner. "She’s a keeper son. Such a huge heart” Jeremy said as he patted him on the back. “I know dad, I’ve never felt like this about anyone before, I’m so in love with her” Justin replied. “Aw she’s turned you into a softie son!” Jeremy teased walking into the living room. “You guys ready for some dinner? P.S (Y/N) Justin’s just been confessing more love for you to me in there” Jeremy laughed. Justin blushed as he hugged me from behind as we walked into the kitchen. 💓💓💓

Wonder Woman

Okay SO many things on the list of lists of things I loved about this movie. and you’ve probably read a lot of similar things. Like:
- #nomanland I choked up
- fact that they did the whole “wrong color”, acknowledgement of Native American genocide, ptsd - a fucking healthy m/f relationship where neither was pulling the other back or the man needing to assert his masculinity - actually no fucking machismo in this movie - blatant portrayal of the SHIT STUPIDITY men did to women simply because they were women - objectifying Steve (THANK YOU !!) - etc


But! Can I just add I FUCKING LOVED (!!): her whole accent -> NO ONE CARED | her not understanding things of this world -> again NO ONE CARED | her wonder at the new Foods/snow -> was met with smiles of people’s own wonder | her knowledge of different languages -> A FUCKING ASSET


This is how immigrants feel. THIS and so much more is how we should react to new people coming into our countries. Not with “why do you have an accent? ” or “speak English you’re in America” . My gods could you imagine if we were just a bit more understanding like Steve and Patty in the way they answered her questions without any hate or frustration. How the team of misfits were just that, a team that was put together for their skills and comradely. Just SO in love with this movie. Fucking perfect. Saved my 2017.

Jillian Holtzmann Headcanons

-Not neurotypical!!! Personally I headcanon her as ADHD

-her hair is so messy because she doesn’t really want to brush it because she likes how her hair curls and waves naturally, but the second she runs a brush through it, it disappears.

-loves loves loves knee high socks and always wears funky patterns

-most of the time her socks are mismatched because she either didn’t want to waste time matching up her socks after doing laundry and on the rare occasion she actually matches them, she just undoes it later because she can’t decide whether to wear the polka dots or the rainbow stripes that day
(It totally bothers the crap out of Erin that they’re mismatched, so she started sneak matching them after Holtzmann falls asleep)

-forgets to do a lot of basic things because she’s so involved in whatever she’s tinkering with
(Erin started doing her laundry after a particularly long stretch of time where Holtzmann was wearing the same shirt. Secretly she loves it because it means she can steal Jillian’s clothes to wear, and ooooooh boyyy the first time Holtzmann saw Erin in one of her overalls?? That was a wild night)
(Patty likes to make sure she’s had at least 2 meals every day because she gets so distracted easily “lunch time yes!!” *sees Abby looking at new toy* “Abby no!” *sees Abby is wearing eyeliner different* “you have to show me how” and basically continues on like that until it’s 3 or 4 and realizes she missed it)

-has a hard time sleeping because she’s constantly thinking of new things to build or a conversation she had that day

-to help her calm her mind, she builds a giant Rube Goldberg machine and adds on a little each night until she’s sleepy

-sometimes she doesn’t sleep at all and then it’s Holtzmann on steroids. She spends the whole day jumping around bursting with energy as if she drank a bunch of caffeine, but she hasn’t had a drop.

-Inevitably crashes hard around 6pm and is just draped somewhere sleeping
(Abby always gently wakes her up, wraps her in a blanket, and helps her to her bed)

-is actually really artistic and can draw real life extremely well because of her grasp on figure relations and the math portion of size and angles and curves

-doesn’t let anyone but Erin see her drawings because they’re very personal and she won’t admit it but when Erin said they’re amazing, she definitely cried.

-is now TERRIFIED of heights after the window incident but puts on a brave face around everyone else

-whenever they have to go up somewhere high to fight a ghost, she either races ahead of everyone, so they can’t see her tears, or lags behind and hopes they’ll catch it before she gets there

-LOVES driving and insists on it every time they need to go somewhere

-on the off chance she isn’t driving, she likes to stick her hand out the window and do the wave thing like her arm is flying

-before she met Abby, she was super reckless with radioactive isotopes because she was sort of hoping it would poison her or that the nuclear material would explode while she was working with it. Then it sort of became a habit where she would build super unstable things just because she didn’t care if it hurt her

-after she met Abby she was a lot more conscious of whether her projects would harm Abby if they harmed her and actively worked to correct that part of her that was so careless

-while the nature of their job means unstable material and that pretty much guarantees unstable finished product, she’s upped the safety factor by a million since she started building dangerous things

-at first it was just because she didn’t want anything to happen to them if something happened to her, but then she realized she didn’t want anything to happen to her either because she finally found her place

Part 2

anonymous asked:

More Lance-snart AU questions! What exactly would bring Barry to pursue a relationship with Len over Iris? They're both kind of grieving lost loves. Would he still try with Patty? And what do you think Len's relationship with Tommy would have been like? I need to know so that it can hurt more. How would it be different from canon Laurel's relationship with him? And how would the situation be different from the one with Iris and Eddie, since I've always gotten the sense that Eddie was her 1stpick

So thinking of how these Arrow/Flash timelines would intersect, Barry would have already tried with Patty by the time Len moves to Central. Len and Barry would know each other, as Oliver would have introduced them and convinced Len to help out on occasion with his cold gun. So when Len decides he needs a change and goes to Central, Barry is happy to see him, to have the extra help on standby at all times, and they’d be catching up and becoming actual friends right around the time Iris is admitting that she maybe has feelings for Barry and is ready to give things a go. 

I think Len would be the sensible one who would end up seeding some doubts in Barry of whether or not Iris really does want him because she WANTS him or because he’s the most convenient replacement for Eddie. Which would start a huge fight between them, where Len thinks he knows what he’s talking about, because he knows the loneliness of losing his love and how appealing it is to just find someone who would be an easy replacement, but he owes Tommy and himself more than that and he honestly believes that one day Iris would end up resenting Barry if she doesn’t really love him. 

I imagine this whole side story of Len and Iris becoming really close and THEM bonding over their lost loves, and Iris realizing Len is right, and Barry realizing the same even though it stings, all leading to his time in the Speed Force where he finally overcomes the loss of his mother, and he feels better about the loss of Iris too.

And then Henry dies, and like I mentioned in the previous POST, that’s what would really cause Len and Barry to get closer. I don’t think it would be a BAM, eruption, they’re together, but a slow build into an alternate season 3 of Iris, Len, and Barry all helping each other get over their losses, and Barry and Len fall in love organically. 

I think some things about the Len/Tommy dynamic would be similar to Laurel. Friends forever, Len always very patient with Tommy’s behavior but trying to get him to grow up and be better, but the major difference here is that I’m picturing a Tommy that obviously had a thing for both of his friends, but more so originally Oliver. Whereas Len never wanted Oliver, only Tommy. But he doesn’t pursue anything for a long time after Oliver goes missing because he worries if Tommy decides to be with him, it’s just because Oliver is gone (see where I’m going here to tie into the WestAllen?). 

But RIGHT before Oliver comes back, Tommy and Len hit a breaking point, Tommy really has his life turned around and realizes what an idiot he was for pining after Oliver for so long, and he and Len been dating for about two weeks when Oliver returns. 

Huge wrench into everything, because Len assumes all his fears will be realized, and Tommy will go back to wanting Oliver. But it doesn’t happen. Tommy is happy to have Oliver back, a different, more mature Oliver, but he discovers he has exactly what he always wanted in Len. He just needs to convince Len of that. And when he finally does and things seem happy between them, we get the end of the season where Tommy defies his father and ends up dying in Len’s arms. 

So Len comes from a place of authority in his mind when it comes to making sure you follow your heart, even if it hurts, toward who you really want, and maybe Iris would be like Tommy and realize she loves Barry more than Eddie, but Len just doesn’t see it and isn’t afraid to admit that. He got what he wanted in the end, only to lose everything. Barry, on the other hand, has to accept that Iris made a different choice and doesn’t feel differently now.
