how does this show do the things it does

7

I’ve mentioned before how one thing I appreciate about the show is the exploration of the many and complex reasons Natsume keeps how he can see youkai a secret from his foster parents. Usually this kind of thing is brushed under the rug or not explained all that much because it’s just a device to keep adults/civilians out of the picture, but with Natsume, his secrecy is part of his character arc.

He does trust the Fujiwaras. He does know rationally they’d still accept, believe and love him. But he also doesn’t want to make them feel bad. He doesn’t want to tell them the full extent of what he deals with because he doesn’t want to worry them or sadden them. He’s aware it’s for himself more than them- they would probably appreciate knowing the truth, no matter how sad it made them. But he just can’t stand being the one to tell them and make them feel sad.

The interesting thing is, the Fujiwaras do know that he’s suffered before now, as their previous conversation demonstrated. They don’t know the details, but they know he’s been through a lot of horrible stuff just by how he acts. They’re ALREADY probably sad about him to an extent and he just doesn’t realize it. 

On the other hand, I do think he’s right and it would freak them out a lot to know youkai are trying to kill him every week, that he’s almost been killed a whole bunch of times. He is in mortal danger A LOT and it would be scary for them to know the full extent of that. Especially since there’s absolutely nothing they can do to protect him. They can’t see the youkai, much less keep him safe from them.

Ultimately, even with all that, I think they’d want to know the truth, even if it was hard. But I can understand why Natsume’s unwilling to deal with that. I think someday they will know the full deal with him, that Natsume will tell them. But it’s going to take a lot of time and growth on Natsume’s part to get to the point where he’s comfortable with that. 

So Nazis.

Here’s the thing that I don’t get.

Indiana Jones. Great character, hates Nazis. Punches and kills his way through them. Still loved by all. 

Everyone loves Batman! Doesn’t like Nazis. 

Wonder Woman, showing people how it’s done. 

Even the villains don’t tolerate Nazis! 

Like, the Joker is seen as one of the most notorious villains in the DC-verse, and he just is about to beat the shit out of the Red Skull. 

More examples: 

And just the sheer amount of times Captain America, literally a character to signify the freedom of the US of fucking A, has punched Nazis is bordering the line of excessive. 

So all of this media ranging from different decades and companies have all endorsed Nazi punching. However, as soon as this happens:

But here’s the thing. It interrupts their platform. It shows that they are not invincible. It shows that they are not protected. It shows that they are going to be held accountable for their spouts of hate disguised as freedom of speech. It shows that there are consequences for their words. 

I’m not saying that I’m going to seek out Nazis just to punch them, but I’m not going to stop anyone who’s doing it either. 

Does art imitate life or does life imitate art? Either way, we should be punching more Nazis. 

ladies gentlemen and others, I have come to introduce you to the avengers youtube channel

tony created the whole thing and and the bio reads: robin hood, uncle sam, ginger snaps, goldilocks, jolly green and the tin man’s chill room

there are videos of natasha teaching self defense moves for women, using the boys as props. her showing tips to learn other languages and “five things you didn’t know you could turn into a weapon”. her filming twenty minute long videos answering questions and giving advice to young girls about everything, from safety, mental health, recognizing abusive behavior in men, self confidence, and how to safely get out of risky situations

thor has a series of videos that go from “things of midgard I (Thor) do not understand” and “thor tries things” of his tasting foods from all over the globe because he is deeply fascinated and respectful of other cultures

bruce does a video series of him teaching yoga and meditation, and every once in a while he asks another member of the team to participate, and by far the most viewed one is of him trying to teach tony to stay still and not say anything and tony does try, but fails miserably while bruce sighs. bruce showing recipes from all the places he’s been. “how to create a stress free environment” videos

tony being the science dad™ making videos of “cool shit you can do with useless eletronics you haven’t used since the 90s but haven’t thrown out yet”. he has short videos of “easier ways to physics” and “math for things you will actually use on your day to day life”. he makes thirty minute long videos of him showing pop culture to steve and thor. so. many. storytime. videos. “that time we tried to lift thor’s hammer”, “steve and the 21st century”, “I watched natasha castrate a man with a plastic spoon”, “clint making the mistakes again”, “reasons why I love bruce banner”. “how to handle anxiety like a boss” videos

steve does the whole thing, from homemade remedies for sick kids that he learned when times were rough and sarah couldn’t afford the real ones. workout tips. and of course, educational yet ranting videos of basic human decency things that should’ve changed in 70 years but haven’t. “it’s ok to ask for help, it doesn’t make you weak” videos

clint being that bitch, trolling everyone in everyway imaginable. changing thor’s shampoo bottle for pink hair dye? check. coloring all of steve’s clothes red blue and white? check. changing the sugar of bruce’s tea for salt? check. making jarvis play everyone a different theme song for when they walk into the room? check. and of course, tony. there are several hour long compilation videos of him scaring the shit out of tony

all of them reading fanfiction about each other. stony, clintasha, ironhawk, ironwidow, romanogers, thor/everyone, loving all the combinations they can find. yes to poliamory and everyone loving each other

jarvis livestreams a night of them drinking asgardian ale and playing mario kart and singing high school musical songs on karaoke. it breaks youtube viewing records

OKAY SUPERCORP/KARAMEL RANT

**Please read** This all really needs to be said. However, before I go further I want you all to understand that this isn’t meant to be a hate paragraph or to purposefully put those who like Mon-El and/or Karamel down. At this point, all the disagreeing and fighting will do nothing. So I’m asking kindly that if you’re going to add something to this post- that it is filled with positive intent. 

 Anyhow, to my point:

I do watch Supergirl by the way, but I truly believe this concerns a wide variety of people. Whether you’re a fan of The 100, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Walking Dead, or just a person living your life… All I hope is that we all try to grasp the reality of what is truly going on. Now I will centralize this long rant towards Supergirl however. For those of you who don’t know what is going on there is a conflict between fans who ship this character, Mon-El, together with Supergirl/Kara and fans who ship Lena Luthor with Supergirl/Kara. Now, in my humble opinion, the big issue isn’t about straight v.s lgbt people and I will go on about that later… but the fact that she is with someone like Mon-El. Now what do I mean by ‘someone like Mon-El’… before certain people get mad I want to emphasize that I’m simply pointing out what happened in the show. 

This is long as hell just fyi.

1) The way Mon-El reacts to most things is through violence. In fact, the moment he wakes up he chokes Kara. And there’s this: 

(his words in white)

And the scene where Mon-El robs Brian; using his powers for selfish reasons.

He even calls her names. And notice how he does this the moment Kara disagrees with him. A reaction that does more harm than good. On the other hand, when Kara and Lena disagree on something (in ep. 2x03) they simply talk it out. They ask questions, explain, clarify, and come to an understanding.

Now, I’m not here to say that I have NEVER agreed with anything Mon-El has said, actually I applaud him for accepting Maggie and Alex’s relationship the way he did, but that’s just the thing. The opinions/beliefs he has don’t come from himself. Most of what he thinks is based off of what he’s seen on Daxam. He really isn’t at all mature. He isn’t by any means and it’s simply the truth. Now hear me out-

This is what I mean by he isn’t mature: How many times has Kara asked him politely and specifically not to do something but without hesitation still does it? And how many times has he had to beg for forgiveness? 

In addition, he doesn’t have knowledge of what respect truly means. What’s interesting though about this scene in particular- is how it’s supposed to be a ‘funny’ scene. Mon-El’s character is written in as ‘funny’ and ‘aloof’… but it sends a poisonous message- that Kara’s feelings aren’t to be taken seriously. And this show is literally supposed to be about her. Not a guy who thinks it’s his duty to ‘defend her honor’ and then complains about it.

Now I know that this was how people on Daxam acted and their way of life was for the most part, sexist, racist, etc. But that still doesn’t give him an excuse to act the way he does. 

2) Lena herself comes from a family with twisted values as well. She is adopted into the Luthor family and has had close to no friends most of her life. And yet she’s still capable of being a perfectly decent person. 

She does save the alien population not once, but twice. So not only is Lena proved time and time again that she’s a good person, but her relationship with Kara (btw I call it a ‘relationship’ just like the writers do)… is not even close to toxic, detrimental, or abusive. It’s the complete opposite.

Protect yourself”

“I can take care of myself”

3) Being in a healthy relationship is about the effort between two willing people… at the same time, knowing your boundaries whilst encouraging one another.

4) Kara deserves someone who fully acknowledges her efforts and is grateful for them

SHOOT Reunion Panel

Sarah and Amy had lunch together a couple weeks ago - they are good friends and they have a lot in common so keeping in touch is fun.

Sarah’s favorite things about Shaw: her eating food with knives.
She also says Shaw’s foreplay would have been cutting each other and punching each other and biting.
Shaw was masculine and always equal to the boys - never portrayed otherwise. That was her most favorite part - how tough and violent.

Amy’s favorite part about Root? “I think Sarah should answer.”
Amy loved getting to flirt with and annoy Shaw, because Sarah is good at portraying the anger. “But I knew she loved me.”
“Both the characters kind of ran things - the girls in charge” - Amy on Shoot

Sarah’s fave ep was 6741!
Sarah took the role because it went to dark places you don’t get to go to on TV.
Sarah’s fave scene: end of 6741 by the carousel! It was very challenging but will always be the 1st thing she thinks of when thinking of POI
Sarah says “I only look good because Amy makes me look good.”

Amy says she liked the part (in 6741) “was when Sarah was biting me”
Amy says she loves their first meeting - the iron and all the sexual tension.
“Was this relationship always meant to happen?” Sarah: (shouting) YES! F**K YEAH!!

“How do you prepare to do a different version of the character, like in 6741?” SARAH: Acting is a lot of human psychology and we are all more than just one thing. With actors you find the closest part of you to the character; she tried to tap into herself there.
Sarah: “There were plenty of times when I was playing Shaw that I didn’t know if I was doing a good job.”
Sarah: I wasn’t supposed to emote much, but we aren’t like robots.

SS: “Kissing Amy is like biting into the most succulent peach. It’s sweet & juicy & just a little wet. It’s better than your dream, sister.”

Someone asked them to improve a scene and Amy says “Hasn’t someone here written some fanfic? … We’ll do a stage reading of anyone’s fic.”
Sarah and Amy acting out Root coming back alive.
“Root.”
“Did you miss me?”
“Is that you?”
“Are you ready for this?”
“I’ve never been more ready”
“Look behind you”
(They [fake] kiss)

Someone asked about SHOOT kinks and Amy just said “we’re gonna keep things ziptied.”

Sarah says Shaw definitely realized she loved Root back in s4; that at the beginning she didn’t have a thing for Root & took her by surprise
“In an alternate universe the two of them were together and made little SHOOT babies.” - Sarah
Sarah says in s4 the flirtations started working, like when Root picked her up on the bike & when Shaw realized she needed Root to help her
Sarah says 6,741 was a result of the fans feedback on Twitter.

Amy says that Root got her hacker skills from playing Oregon Trail.

Sarah said kissing your friend is like kissing your sister.

Amy says the weird part is the audience of the cast and crew when shooting, but she was glad Sarah was there.
Amy also said that there’s not a person she’d rather have that experience with than Sarah. (About shooting 6741)

Amy says Root made the decision in s5 she did because if she chose Shaw, there would be no world anyway.
Amy also says that being The Machine was the closest Root could get to having both.

Sarah likes doing films because you can take more chances and move at a slower pace.
Amy likes TV because you gain a family in the crew & the characters get to evolve and change. “But I guess shows can be cancelled.”

“In canon we see Shaw has a PD, and Root probably does as well, how does that change the way you approach the characters?”
Amy says that’s where you got a lot of quirks of the characters, but you just play them as truthful to what’s on the page.
Sarah says she remembers she had to look up Axis II disorders to learn how to play things accurate.

Sarah loved working w/Bear b/c the takes were different because you had to work w/what he wanted to do. “You’re not gonna out cute the dog”
Amy telling a story about how they were shooting outside and it was SO COLD they were both getting frostbite but they had to keep shooting. But then the animal handler came & had to take Bear because it was too cold for him, so she was jealous.

When asked, “Did Root have a crush on Hannah?” Amy said, “She was before your time, you don’t have to be jealous.” To Sarah.

Talking about new projects- Sarah: It’s kind of like a TV version of Inception. She goes into people’s subconscious to help them.
Sarah also did an Amazon pilot called “Halfway House” where she plays a meth addict.

Amy says she’s afraid to talk about her new project.

Sarah closes the panel by acknowledging the support of fans and is thankful because they’re why they are where they are.

Thank you to starrymag

Painful Character Development

Have some painful character development ideas, because if I have to suffer, so do you.

  1. What would your character what their last words to be, and who would they want to say them to?
  2. If your characters’ loved ones were in danger but they only had time to save one of their lives, who would they choose?
  3. Your character is given the choice to either die an excruciatingly painful death or have one of their loved ones die in a painless way. Do they save their loved one’s life or their own?
  4. Your character has the opportunity to fix one of their most grievous mistakes, but doing so will ensure that they never meet at least one of their loved ones and they will not have any memory of their relationship with those loved ones. Do they take the chance to fix the mistake anyway?
  5. What are your character’s deepest regrets?
  6. Are there any events in your character’s life that they feel wholly negative about, no silver lining whatsoever?
  7. Does your character have any unfulfilled dreams that can never come true?
  8. How was your character first introduced to the concept of death? How did they react?
  9. Does your character have any negative associations with otherwise neutral or positive things–i.e., not liking a certain television show because their parents always argued during the time that it came on and the character watched it as a (failed) attempt to distract themselves.

minseok is actually such a role model??? to introverts and just shy people in general??? we’re talking about a person who’s naturally just shy and a person who didnt utter one word during a whole hour long showtime episode and who probably thought it was hell doing an exomentary episode by himself and yet he constantly puts himself out there?? he creates a different persona on stage and gives his all in everything he does and doesnt complain about not being center stage or being labelled as anything and just supports everyone from the side lines while showing his love for all the members?? yet hes also so private in his personal life and values education and strives for personal growth and just generally does his own thing and idk where i was going with this but idk how minseok antis exist…..i just dont get it 

Things b99 OWES me with regards to Domestic Jake & Amy:

  • Them getting ready in the morning- brushing their teeth, getting dressed, choosing what to wear and what shoes to wear
  • How they sleep?? How needy are they when cuddling? Is Jake the little spoon? Does Amy like being the little spoon too? If so- how do they decide who’s little spoon? Do they flip a coin? Rock Paper Scissors? Or they just switch every night? Do their cuddling positions change from when they first go to sleep to when they wake up in the morning?
  • How Jake brushes his teeth in two seconds
  • Who cooks breakfast? Do they do it together or is it a let’s go outside and buy pizza bagels type of situation? Have they tried cooking together? Did it turn out well or was it a disaster?
  • How the hell does anyone brush their teeth in TWO. SECONDS.
  • We’ve seen Amy’s apartment, but what does it look like now that Jake’s moved in? How does that prim and proper set of “Murder, She Wrote” look with touches and streaks of Jake flowing through the place? Is it messier now? Does Amy make Jake clean up after himself or does she love him so much she’s okay with a little bit of mess? Or does Jake love Amy so much he tries to clean up after himself because he knows she likes things clean?
  • Is it even humanely possible to brush one’s teeth in two seconds?
  • Them watching TV together- exactly how scary is Amy when they watch Jeopardy? How often do they watch Die Hard? And Die Hard 2? And Die Hard 3? Do they watch Harry Potter a lot now? What other shows and movies do they watch together? Do they snuggle? Is Jeopardy too intense for them to snuggle during? Is there popcorn?
  • Did Amy time how long Jake actually takes to brush his teeth or was two seconds a rough estimate??
  • Now that they live together, do they purposely get shifts that start and end at similar timings? Do they wait for each other to finish before going home together? Does Holt secretly let them take shifts that are at the same timings bc he’s a romantic? Who drives? Do they take turns? Do they let Charles tag along since he lives so close by?
  • OKAY BUT SERIOUSLY, WOULDN’T IT BE MORE TROUBLESOME TO BRUSH ONE’S TEETH IN TWO SECONDS AS OPPOSED TO THIRTY? I GET THAT AMY WAS EXAGGERATING BUT THE AMOUNT OF CONCENTRATION AND SPEED NEEDED TO BRUSH TEETH IN TWO SECONDS IS JUST CRAZY
  • where do they put Jake’s sneakers?? And does he still have his six basketballs?

Bayard Headcannon

Okay, so what if all of the paladins are testing out each other’s Bayard because why not and Lance is hesitant to show his because his is just a gun and not a cool one like Hunk’s and isn’t this cool sword or electric dagar thing like Keith and Pidge, but he does anyway. (Not sure aboit shiro) So they are doing target practice and Lance shows them how to shoot it and does a bulls eye and hands it to Hunk, who doesn’t do well at all. Thats not surprising though. Yes got a huge one and this one is smaller.

But Pidge and Keith are both all like “where is the scope??” And Lance is all like “??” And then everybody starts freaking out because their sharpshooter is great.

So they ask how he shoots and Lance just says he had a lot of practice growing up. I totally like the idea that Lance did archery or something. Hunted for food with a bow and arrow if he didn’t have a gun. So his Bayard changes to a bow with energy arrows that freeze shit and now Lance is freaking out and he starts shooting arrows again and there is ice everywhere but he’s smiling so hard he’s crying and saying how his grandfather introduced him to it and his form is just STUNNING.

I’ll honestly find any situation to ship something.

But then they start praising him at how great he is and he just breaks down and it’s a group hug and he tries to teach them archery and they want to learn because it makes Lance feel better.

And!! Maybe Pidge and Lance have a sibling moment because it reminded them both of the families they didn’t have around them at the time.

- Anakin would be extremely protective of you, even if you aren’t around. Even if someone just mentions your name, he’ll be there and be making sure they’re not speaking badly of you.

- He has a short temper though and it’d become obvious to you that he has a crush on you when he starts getting annoyed when he sees someone flirting with you.

- He’s literally just so ready to fight anyone that.

- Anakin really likes just being in the same room as you as being around you brings a lot of comfort to him.

- He also does little touches and things when he gets the chance; maybe just place his hand on the small of your back or brush his fingers against yours.

- He knows he shouldn’t be falling in love with you but he finds it impossible not to. He’d even find himself lying awake at night just thinking about you and knowing it’s wrong.

- Being one of the very few people that Anakin trusts.

- When you’re alone he never stops talking because he just feels so comfortable around you and enjoys being with you.

- In the end, he’d make the first move and just kiss you. He doesn’t have to say anything more for you to know that he has feelings for you.


BODHI ROOK

Originally posted by newtpotters

- Bodhi is already a flustered person but when he’s around you, he can barely walk straight.

- He’s usually relaxed around you and enjoys talking with you because you actually listen to him and seem to enjoy talking to him as much as he enjoys talking to you.

- But at times, he can be extremely shy and if you say something to him all he can do as a response is give you a silly smile and blush.

- He’d drop everything to help you or talk to you; this has proven to be annoying to those around him who he’s actually meant to be helping but leaves to go to you.

- Everyone knows that he likes you and would constantly offer him advice and just grin at him whenever they saw you and Bodhi talking.

- Both of you would reach out to each other whenever you needed some comforting.

- He’s very self-conscious and wouldn’t believe that you could ever have feelings for someone like him.

- Even though he believes that you couldn’t like him back, he will still give his best efforts to make sure you know just how special and wonderful you are.

- You’re the only person that Bodhi will tell his nightmares to. You always assure him he’s a good man – he appreciates hearing that from you.

- He’s very shy but sometimes he has the courage to give you a small hug or squeeze your hand.

- He’ll think about these small touches forever.

- He does stupid things when he’s distracted by you and gets shit from people like Baze and Cassian about it because he’s whipped.

- Can just be a generally dopey mess around you.

- Chirrut, Baze, Cassian and Jyn just end up hounding you and try to figure out if you like Bodhi back; this ends up being a dead giveaway to you that Bodhi may have feelings for you.


CASSIAN ANDOR

Originally posted by capitancassian

- Cassian will always deny having feelings for you. Even if you end up dating, he’ll deny having a feelings for you; he’s a bit funny like that but he’s just been taught to not develop relationships with people because they’re so easy to lose.

- Having this perception is difficult because he his feelings are so deep and intense for you that it’s terrifying to him and he has no idea how to go about them.

- K-2SO has tried to offer him advice on how to make you fall in love with Cassian. Cassian does not appreciate the advice.

- He does make a point of being near you whenever possible though. Not only does it feel him with happiness, he just likes having his eye on you because he doesn’t want anything to happen to you (even when you’re in a perfectly safe environment).

- He will give you nicknames that you have a love/hate relationship with. This is his way of showing affection.

- People can tell that Cassian likes you by the things he says to you – “I trust you, (Y/N)”, “stay safe”, “have you eaten?”, “do you need some help?”.

- You’d think that he’d be somewhat confident when having feelings for people but it’s quite the opposite. He can become shy and reserved and you might even think that he hates you but it’s quite different than that.

- You’re the only one that can call him ‘Cass’

- He definitely refers to you as ‘my girl’ even though you’re technically not

- Always caters to your needs. For example, if you need a new pair of pyjamas Cassian suddenly presents you with one of his old shirts (“you can wear this, if you want”).

- He tries his best to be anything but himself around you. He’s worried that it’ll be too much and you’ll hate it but after a while he realises that you like him for him and that just makes him fall in love with you that bit more.

- The only time he’ll admit to himself that he’s head over heels for you is very late at night when he wakes after a nightmare and realises the only comfort in his life is knowing you’re alive.

- K-2SO being the one that reveals Cassian has feelings for you. You’d be in disbelief until you see Cassian’s reaction and he’s kind of just stumped and speechless so you realise that it’s true.


FINN

Originally posted by andorrooks

- The little dork is so dopey and lovable. You’ll have a collection of things that Finn brings you; flowers, rocks, something he picked up from a market that reminded him of you. He always delivers it to you with a giant smile on his face. 

- People hardcore shipping the two of you and you being oblivious to Finn’s feelings. You just assume that he’s like that with everyone but he’s only like that because you’re around.

- You’re the person that introduces him to a life properly outside of being a Stormtrooper. Well, so you think. Even if other people have showed him, he’ll tell you he hasn’t seen it before so you can show him and he can spend time with you.

- He will always try to protect you even when he’s terrified. You always know that Finn has your back.

- When he’s tired he gets somewhat honest with you. He won’t go as far as confessing his feelings for you but he’ll be very kind and assure you how beautiful you are and that he’d go crazy if anything would happen to you.

- Always knowing you can trust Finn with your secrets and feelings and him believing the same about you

- He gets genuinely surprised whenever you show him kindness and do something sweet for him. You don’t know it but he’ll think about it for so long, he just isn’t used to people being so lovely to him.

- There are always going to be people who are suspicious of Finn since he was once a Stormtrooper; you always defend him and assure him that you believe in him and you know he’s good.

- Probably constantly worries that you’ll never have feelings for him and that you might hate him or that he’s said something stupid. He’s just a ball of anxiety.

- Even if you don’t like him at first, you probably have a lot of love for Finn. It’s hard not to.

-  Tells you that he has feelings for you by accident. It just slips out after a really long day and he more or less makes a run for it after he realises what he says.


HAN SOLO

Originally posted by starwars

- Han tries to restrain himself from being an ass but it’s so difficult for him to not be.

- Luckily for him though, you always have witty and sarcastic comebacks whenever he’s being a jerk to you or anyone. He loves it and it becomes like a little joke between the two of you.

- You don’t understand why Chewbacca sometimes sasses you but it’s because he’s jealous that Han has feelings for you; although he does really like the idea of the two of you being together. It’s a bit conflicting.

- You kind of know that Han has a crush on you but you decide that it’s best not to do anything until you know Han is ready to have a relationship.  

- You make him a better person; his personality doesn’t exactly change but he’d develop new values and become a stronger person because of you.

- Is very protective you when you’re not looking. If he sees someone staring at you, as soon as you’re out of ear shot he will subtly threaten them.

- Han loves making you blush and smile, it makes him extremely proud of himself.

- He teaches you how to fix ships, using the Millennium Falcon to teach you, and you end up being better than him. He’s kind of annoyed but somewhat delighted.

- He likes distracting you and embarrassing you when you’re trying to be serious, especially if you’re trying to give orders or help with a mission. He’ll just make faces at you until you start laughing and then act as if he can’t figure out why you’re ‘acting so weird’.

- He steals kisses from you whenever he’s about to do something dangerous. You want to be annoyed because you want him to just admit that he likes you but it’s hard to stay angry at Han.

- Han is just a complicated person but you can deal with complicated

- Nothing would officially happen between the two of you until things have calmed down. He’d finally admit to you his feelings and finish telling you by saying “but you already knew that”.


KYLO REN

Originally posted by hardyness

- You can always calm him down when he gets worked up about things; Kylo is just less hateful when you’re around.

- He will look to you for a second opinion before making a serious decision on something. He trusts you.

- Everyone know that Kylo has feelings for you but they just find it really hard to believe.

- He can be very intense and full on but he will always apologise to you at the end of the day for being so harsh. You don’t tell anyone that he apologises to you though, you understand that he has a ‘reputation’ to uphold.

- Doesn’t hesitate to hurt anyone that even looks at you wrong. You wouldn’t know about this. He doesn’t want you to know that he has feelings for you but you know somewhat the he does like you.

- He has been accused of being too sweet on you and questioned on multiple occasions if he has really turned to the dark side; if he really is like his grandfather.

- Whenever this happens Kylo can lash out at you. You’re very cool and witty whenever this happens.

- He truly believes you’re too good for him and you probably are. He decides to not try to develop a relationship with you.

- That doesn’t stop him from watching you across the room and giving you a small smile.

- He doesn’t try to use the Force on you because he knows that if you want to tell him something, you will.

- Kylo feels somewhat guilty when you see him hurt another person. He pretends he doesn’t. People try and take advantage of having you in the room because they know he likes you so they try and see what they can get away with.

- He wonders if he’s sick or truly going crazy because he has feelings for you. He has asked you very quietly on a few occasions if you think there’s something wrong with him – he doesn’t say it’s because he likes you though.

- He’s seen you when you’re angry and you’re more frightening than he is when he’s angry. It’s even scarier because you rarely get properly angry. This makes him even more attracted to you.

- Kylo has only told you once that he has feelings for you. It was a very quiet time and you somehow managed to be alone. He told you in barely a whisper but you heard him and he knew you did. You didn’t say anything back.


LEIA ORGANA

Originally posted by dailyskywalkers

- Leia likes you because you’re also her best friend.

- She adores you. You can do no wrong in her eyes and she does nothing but support you and try to make you live to your fullest potential.

- She gives people terrifying death stares whenever she notices them underestimating you or perhaps not adoring you as much as she adores you.

- Will always greet you with caf (coffee) or whatever gets you up in the morning.

- When giving briefings and mission orders, she has to look away from you because she can’t be serious whenever you’re in the room. She’ll just start smiling and acting goofy and she kind of hates that you have that effect on her.

- You’re her partner in crime. You and Leia go out late when you’re told to stay inside and explore places without letting anyone know you’re leaving because you know they’ll try to stop you.

- Calling each other stupid nicknames when you’re annoyed with one another.

- You’d probably have a lot of platonic hugging and hand holding because it comforts both of you. It means a lot more to her than you know.

- People probably have bets on when the two of you will get together. Luke has told Leia that she needs to make a move on you soon or else he’ll owe Han money.

- She acts as if she doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

- Probably braids your hair and teaches you how to do the braids.

- When Leia tells you that she likes you, you laugh and tell her that it’s about time she admitted that.

- She may smack you for that reaction.


LUKE SKYWALKER

Originally posted by dofp

- Luke practically fell in love with you within seconds of knowing you. He’d just decide that yep, you’re the one for him.

- People realise that he has feelings for you when he starts mentioning if it’d be wrong to change the Jedi code about marriage and being with a partner.

- Has a habit of rambling whenever you’re around, especially when he’s trying to compliment you.

- Always grinning whenever you’re around and he’s often scolded because he happens to be grinning during a serious situation.

- You two would go on adventures together and have private places only the two of you know about.

- You also have countless inside jokes.

- Is just so caring of you and you’d think that he saw you as a little sister because of the way he treated you.

- Luke just wanted to be respectful of you and didn’t want you to think he’s ‘too much’.

- Would go to Leia or Han and say things like “if I hypothetically liked a girl…” and then ask for advice. They always knew he was talking about you.

- Leia coming to you and trying to get you to admit you liked Luke. She’d tell him that you do but he always thought she was saying that just to make him feel better.

- Using the Force to impress you and show you cool tricks.

- Always sensing when something’s wrong and you trusting him enough to confide with him.

- He’s fine with just being your friend. He just wants to be in your life, even if you see him as a brother, friend or protector.

- Luke probably yells at you that he likes you when he’s about to go on a mission. Even though it’s a very dangerous mission, he spends the whole time smiling because you yelled “I like you back, you idiot”.


OBI-WAN KENOBI

Originally posted by the-return-of-the-imagines

- Tries to avoid you after meeting you for the first time because he knows straight away that he won’t be able to stop himself falling in love with you.

- Can’t avoid you. You always bump into each other and he gives in. In fact, he finds he works better after seeing you so he likes to be close to you.

- He lets you pet his beard and play with his hair but makes you promise not to tell anyone (especially Anakin).

- Anakin can tell that Obi-Wan likes you and is relentless when it comes to teasing him. Obi-Wan just smacks him and tells him to shut up.

- Anakin doesn’t shut up though and makes sly jokes about Obi-Wan’s crush on you whenever you’re around.

- He’s very quiet and soft around you. He feels as if he can relax when he’s with you.

- You bicker like an old married couple though.

- He can be bold at times and rather charming. At times like these, he can get very flirty and lovely with you.

- But in the end, Obi-Wan is a gentleman and is very wary of the Jedi code. He may flirt a lot but won’t make a move on you because he knows he’d like it too much and he won’t be able to stop himself.

- You’d just end up confronting him and get him to confess that he likes you.


POE DAMERON

Originally posted by imwhe

- Be prepared for Poe to adore you

- If you’re shy, he’ll just adore you even more

- He wants you to be comfortable though. He’ll never push you to like him or do anything that you don’t want to do; he just wants to spend time with you.

- It will become a habit for Poe to hold your hand during mission briefings. You never talk about the fact you do that though.

- He gives you cheek and forehead kisses whenever you achieve something to congratulate you.

- Poe just will support you through everything and always cheers you on, even if you’re doing the smallest of things. You want to have a lazy day? Yeah, you do that! You want to draw a picture like a little kid? Good for you!

- He gives you his jacket all the time. Doesn’t even second guess it, he just puts it over your shoulders to wear.

- Comes to you after he has nightmares because of the missions he’s gone through, especially after being captured by the First Order. You’re the only person he trusts to confide in.

- Flies you around and takes you on small trips to get your mind off the war.

- Can make a fool of himself around you.

- You have no idea why some women (and men) keep acting like their jealous of you. Everyone knows Poe likes you; they can see the way he looks at you and wants him to look at them that way.

- Whenever something bad happens, he runs to you straight away to make sure you’re okay. You’re his priority.

- Leia is practically a mother to him and will talk to you about him, encouraging you to go on a date with him.

- You’ll tell Poe about this and he’ll get all flustered and embarrassed but you assure him that it’s fine; you kind of guessed that he liked you but you didn’t expect to find out through General Organa.

- In all realness, Leia was just sick of neither of you doing anything. She also had a bet with a few members of the Resistance on when you two would get together and time was running out.


REY

Originally posted by wckdagnes

- Rey has no idea what having a crush is meant to feel like but she knows the way she feels about you is different to how she feels about other people. It’s romantic.

- You’d think maybe she resents you but she doesn’t. She just isn’t sure how to go about having feelings for someone and even starts observing couples to help her.

- Seriously, there wouldn’t be much of a lead up to you finding out that Rey likes you. She’d just approach you and say she likes you but not in the way she likes Poe or Leia and she isn’t sure what she’s meant to do about it.

- Rey is so cute so you’d laugh and have no problem in helping her figure out what she should do. You tell her about dating and crushes and she thinks it’s amazing – she kind of knew about all this sort of stuff but not to this extent.

- You’d discover just how intelligent and powerful Rey is and you’d develop a friendship and go out on dates to show her what couples do.

- She’d pick flowers for you and always excitedly tell you about her day and then very solemnly tell you about her life on Jakku.

- So she doesn’t really go through the stage of crush to relationship. You just end up being together and no one thinks twice about it. You’re like her other half and she’s yours. Rey is always teaching you new things and you’re always teaching her new things – you balance each other out.

How to Write Kiss Scenes

So an anon asked us to give some tips for kiss scenes…and I’m gonna give it a try!

Rule #1: Before

What happens before they kiss. Is there a conversation going on? An emotional reunion? An intimate moment? Describe what the characters are doing to lead up to the kiss or to them wanting to kiss.

Rule #2: Eye Contact

What are they looking at? Each other? The ground? The sky? Eyes are the gateway to the soul, remember? Use that to your advantage. How are they looking at each other. What do they feel when they do?

Rule #3: Body Language

How are they moving? Describe what character is doing what. Are they jittery or calm? Happy or sad? What emotions are showing through their body language? Who leans in first? Where are their hands??

Rule #4: The Kiss

Now for the big thing. How do they go into the kiss? Is it fast or slow at first? Does one grab the other’s face or is it mutual and they both lean in till their lips touch. Explain how their lips meet then show what kind of kiss it is! Is it awkward? Sloppy? Romantic? Fierce? Angry? Sad? DESCRIBE is the most important thing in this because you want to let the reader know what is going on and what is happening. Are they making out? Is it a peck? How long does it last, but don’t make any kiss too long and too detailed. We don’t need gross stuff guys…Well let’s say we don’t need three whole pages of just these two making out.

Rule #5: Afterward

What happens now? The kiss is done. It’s happened. How have they reacted? Are they shocked? Angry? In love? Explain what they’re feeling after this. Are they feeling exposed in a way or awkward? Is there sexual tension or any tension at all? Do they say anything or does one run away. This is an important step just like the others because it is still full of feeling.

After this you have succeeded in making two characters show some affection :) not every kiss scene is the same but for big ones I usually focus on those rules and they’re pretty helpful.

Hope I helped! Happy writing!

can we talk about how Misha has the ability to give Jensen a partial boner without touching him? (+this!)

and how Jensen makes Misha laugh all the time on set (x)

(x)

and Misha does it effortlessly in return? (seriously he just needs to show up and Jensen’s a mess) (x)

and Jensen’s explosive laughter is basically an emotional orgasm?? SO MANY ENDORPHINS

and how they both do the weak-kneed spinning thing when they laugh? and they clearly picked that up from each other??

and Mish is sometimes not functioning at 100% but doesn’t say anything because he doesn’t wanna bring anyone down, but Jensen notices and DOES something about it??

and Misha will do the same for Jensen??

and how they’re both so IN TUNE with each other’s emotions??? because I feel like these things aren’t talked about enough
