Make sure Dark is actually Dark before treating him though, we don't want Damien to be manipulating us. If it is him, I would suggest a hypnosis tape. Once you have calmed him down sufficiently, fill him with memories of being Dark. This should bring him back for good. -shock blanket anon
D: Things happened behind the scenes. We came to agreements, we cried, we fought. But, there’s been a final decision. For good.
Very important observations from seeing DEH from the fourth row yesterday
It’s not an illusion. Mike Faist really is that tall. And yet his pants are so insanely tight like do they even make jeans that tight for legs that long or did they have to custom-make them? I need to know
Half of it was hidden behind the bed, but from what I saw, there is a deck of cards, what appears to be an old blanket, a tackle box, and a safe on Connor’s shelf. There is also a Harley-Davidson sticker on the side of it
Evan has a three-ring binder and two massive books on his side-table, like thicker than some dictionaries I own
Some of Jared’s shirts include one with pictures of flying pigs that says “don’t stop believing,” another that says “coffee is for quitters,” one with a faded superhero logo (I think it was the Flash?), and one that says “Pokemon made me do it.”
Evan has a Dell laptop, Jared, Alana, and Zoe all have Macs
Zoe and Connor both wear multiple bracelets
Connor looks so completely sad during Waving Through a Window and it hurts
The one time the actual Connor smiles is when he’s talking to Evan in the computer lab
Idk about Ben, but when Evan is singing about climbing the tree in For Forever, MLB starts crying
Imaginary!Connor has this dorky grin almost all the time, but especially during Sincerely, Me
Cynthia cries into Connor’s pillow during Requiem
There’s a point where imaginary!Connor playfully hits Evan and it was so loud like I can see why the Newsies ended up bruised after fight scenes with Mike he does not hold back
After the Sincerely, Me reprise, he looks so bummed out that he doesn’t get to be friends with Jared
When Zoe is upset or stressed out, she taps her foot
When Heidi is yelling at Evan, he gets tense and teary-eyed, like he’s never heard his mom yell like that and it terrifies him
Will. Fucking. Roland. Holy shit, this guy needs more credit. I wouldn’t have even noticed if it didn’t literally happen ten feet in front of me, but during Good For You, when Heidi comes back in and he isn’t at all the focus or even in the light, Jared absolutely breaks down. Like, his body heaving as he desperately holds back tears, teeth clenched, clutching his chest, leaning against the wall on the edge of the stage. And just before he turns back and starts singing again, he pulls himself together and lets out this furious shout and it hurt my soul
ALSO MLB SANG ALONG AT THE END OF GOOD FOR YOU LIKE IN THE DC PRODUCTION
Okay so I’ve seen this show three times now and idk if Mike was just super into it yesterday or what but holy shit the scene where it’s revealed that Evan attempted suicide was different and even more painful. Like, imaginary!Connor was literally screaming “EVERYONE WILL HATE YOU!” and then when he asked “how’d you break your arm?” he said it like he was taunting Evan with what happened, but then once it was all out in the open, his entire demeanor changed. He started slouching a little, his voice got quieter, higher, and started breaking, and then he fucking cried. Like tears just streaming down his face and falling to the stage and when he sang the reprise of For Forever, he smiled, as if the lie was the one hope he had, the one thing he was clinging to, and it was so good that it took away the pain, but his eyes were still red and glistening in the spotlight and ahh I have never felt so much for a literal figure of someone’s imagination
During Words Fail, Zoe is just staring at Evan with wide, tear-filled eyes, Cynthia is outright sobbing and can’t bring herself to look at him, and Larry isn’t crying, but he looks so betrayed, like Evan just punched him in the face
Kristolyn Lloyd and Michael Park each put an arm around Mike Faist during curtain call
You know, Lexi, you remind me of a friend of mine. His dad was a boxer who got in way over his head and got himself killed. And for a long time my friend thought his dad abandoned him too until one day he learned the truth. That his dad was actually killed because he wanted to stop being a criminal because he wanted his son to be proud of him. Whatever, I’m just trying to say that my friend’s dad was a good guy and maybe yours was too.
A friend dreamed about Otabek and Yuri kissing in the beach, and she gave me the idea to draw the scene. My chest hurts, and I actually cried while drawing it. So pure, so beautiful… Please Kubo, make it happen!!
Please don’t take this post too seriously, it was born out of a conversation I had with @azy-arty after watching the new Underverse episode :’D I didn’t plan to post it, but she thought it’s a good idea.
Yeah while I overly wondered why Papyrus couldn’t leave with Blue and Dream, she was actually enjoying the scene (and probably cried xD)
But yes, check out Underverse if you haven’t yet!!
Regarding the soundtrack for S4, I've noticed a new motif that originated in TST, a sombre violin piece that begins at 1:13 on track 6 'Running Away', used for the scene where John reads the letter Mary wrote about running away. So naturally I assumed this was Mary's theme, until today when I heard it again in TLD (track 7 of the TLD soundtrack 'No Charges' at 0:45), but slowed down. The scene in TLD is where John hits Sherlock, so it has nothing to do with Mary. What may we deduce of this?
Here’s “Running Away”:
And here’s “No Charges”
What struck me first of all, on Running Away, WAS THE GODDAMNED VIOLIN. A lot of us speculate that Mary’s letter is ACTUALLY Sherlock’s letter that he wanted to write to John when he left him at TRF. Alright, stay with me here for a second: Sherlock writes his “love songs” on violin, and they’re always melancholy and ALWAYS for John (sorry, but Irene’s Theme is FOR JOHN); I think this is ACTUALLY meant to represent Sherlock’s character and his pining for John, his apology for leaving him. It’s also tightly intermingled with hints of John’s theme sped up in it as well.
Then, in No Charges, you are correct – it’s DOES bear a terribly striking resemblance to Running Away, just played an octave or semi-octave down or on a different scale. Which causes it to sound SADDER. Because now Sherlock feels like he is getting what he deserves for leaving John, doomed to a life of infinite sadness and loneliness. Technically, it’s also relating to Mary since they are discussing Mary in that scene, but yes, I do honestly believe anything played by the violin in ANY of the soundtracks are a reflection of Sherlock’s feelings.
God I actually cried writing this. I hadn’t had the chance yet to listen to S4′s soundtrack, so I’m glad I got to for this.
I’ve been meaning to make this post for a while now to show you this joke and why it is my favorite. This is the joke:
This joke may not make sense at first but I’m going to explain why it’s funny. The “William I” Japan mentions is Kaiser Wilhelm I, who was the king of Prussia and the first emperor of Unified Germany starting in 1861.
This guy, he was described as the most histrionic emperor in Europe, he was known for often breaking into tears. Every time he cried and acted dramatic he didn’t get his way. When Japan references Wilhelm, he’s saying exactly the same thing Italy said in the scene, he’s going to give in and not get his way. But he says it in a way that makes it hard to tell what he actually meant, and if Germany kept pressing Japan on what he meant, he would be disrespecting his former emperor, so Japan avoids confrontation, and that is incredibly Japanese. To understand the joke, you had to understand the obscure historical reference and Japanese negotiation tactics, it’s a brilliantly written, multi-layered, subtle joke. Jokes like these are part of what makes Hetalia so great, why I love the series, and why I believe that Himaruya is a genius.
“I love you, Brooke. I want to be with you. But why? I need to know why? Because you kink your eyebrow when you trying to be cute. Because you quote Camus even though I’ve never actually seen you read. And because you miss your parents, but you’ll never ever admit that. And because I’ve given exactly two of these embarrassing speeches in my entire life and they’ve both been with you. I mean, that’s got to mean something, right? And because we’re both gonna get pneumonia, but if you need to hear why I love you, I can go on all night.
- About kids, and grandchild for my parents, feeling guilty towards the ancestors, then about reproduction to maintaining the species, or about the fact that human evolution is gonna hit an impasse soon?
This scene is so precious to me. Truly. I remember when i first read it… I cried so much. Because I realized that is not just about the couple itself but Sajou thinking WHAT IF or HOW it would have been if he or Kusakabe wanted family/kids someday. I believe Sajou’s here questioning himself because he actually wants kids but knows he can’t. He needed some kind of confirmation from Kusakabe, because at that point he was doubting himself. And I love how Kusakabe handled whole situation. He’s being realistic but at the same time he’s offering himself to Sajou. You gain something but in order to get that you need to make some sacrifice.
SO WHAT IS HAPPINESS FOR YOU?
Kusakabe is thinking about Sajou’s happiness, that’s why he’s offering himself.
This scene IS SO BEAUTIFUL TO ME. We can’t get everything but we can do it TOGETHER!!! We can make each other happy :)
