Zac was going to be on Ellen and he had invited me to come along. It was uncommon that he invited me. We’d been seeing each other for a few months not, but had kept it pretty secret. It was fun. Sneaking away at event and premieres to steel a kiss. I had been a fan of the show for a while and he knew this. Before he went on Ellen came to check on him in his dressing room and Zac decided to introduce us. I stuttered a little when Ellen reached out her hand, but she was super nice.
Later, I sat in the audience to watch the show. It was going really well. Zac was making some cute joke and Ellen was laughing. Then Ellen mention my name. “I met your girlfriend, (Y/N), backstage. She’s really cute. How long have you been dating?”
Zac tried to avoid the question. I smirked, knowing it was all for the camera. Ellen gave him a sly smile, “so, you’re dating.” Zac laughed and looked at me in the audience. Maybe we weren’t as sneaky as we thought.
“James is getting a bit frustrated shut up here, he tries not to show it but I can tell” (Lily’s letter to Sirius).
This gif is so sweet and tender, reminds me so much of what Jily means to me. Just a little gesture trying to cheer him up when he’s not feeling fine. We all have this idea of James being fun and brave, but sometimes we forget that he also had his weakness and failures. I love that Lily is the one who inspires him to be strong, especially when he makes mistakes. She doesn’t ask him “Are you ok?” because she knows when he’s not. She says “We’ll be fine” instead and that’s enough. She always makes him smile and laugh when he’s having a hard time. And vice-versa. I just love James & Lily and this gif is beautiful.
I didn’t have too much time to draw this weekend but I’m always thinking about Jily. I miss writing about them so I decided to share some thoughts here :)
note: I don’t know where I’ve found this gif. it’s just here in my computer since 2014. I always look at it when I need inspiration.
“We would stay up late (Hotel Bristol’s lobby) into the night, along with Eleanor Parker and Pamela Danova and Dee Dee Wood and other members of the cast and crew, and the many locals whom Chris had befriended…. Chris taught us how to drink… I still have the bottle of ‘William’s Pear’ I bought in Salzburg in 1964. I take it out every now and then and have a little sip, and it always makes me think of Chris Plummer and staying up late into the night at the Bristol Hotel…
…To me, Chris Plummer was tremendous fun. He was outrageous and complicated and always made me laugh. We were only thirteen years apart in age, and he was terribly handsome and dashing, and as flirtatious with me as I was with him…
…I loved working with Chris. He was acerbic and sarcastic but always humorously so. Without him, the long days of filming would have been dreary. He added so much liveliness to the days on location. And he made a conscious effort to do so.
…Julie would be in Salzburg for the entire time, as would the children and I. But Chris Plummer was not. He finished in mid-June, and one day he was simply gone. Salzburg wasn’t the same after he left. Of Course, we would see him again when filming resumed in Los Angeles. But spending time with Chris Plummer was, like dark chocolate, one of my favorite memories of those days in Salzburg.”

You were so lucky to get your big break with the movie
Avengers, the script were amazing and the cast and crew were the best you could
ever ask for, especially Aaron. You two
would always joke on constantly and make fun of each other. “Hey short arse” he
laughed walking over to you and ruffling your dark brown hair, you weren’t to fazed
as today had been a long day of shooting and your hair had fallen from its
loose curls to almost straight. “Hey quickie” you retorted back wincing once
you had said those words. “I didn’t mean it like that” you cringed your cheeks
turning a subtle shade of pink. “Oh so
you think im quick huh?” he chuckled as he moved forward crossing his arms, the
muscles in his forearms and biceps protruding even more and you couldn’t stop
staring. “That’s not what I meant and you know it” you whined as he dropped his
smirked and laughed sweetly as you. “CLEAR THE SET SCARLETT AND BRUCE NEEDED ON
SET” The director screeched through the microphone. Aaron grabbed your hand and
pulled you away from the set before anyone could accuse you both of being in
the way. Although, he didn’t stop once he pulled you away, in fact he didn’t stop
until you were far away from anyone else, you were in one of the old alleyways
just behind were the big fight was going to be filmed. “So” he laughed, do you
wanna test how quick I really am?” he grinned pushing a strand of your hair out
of his face. Looking into his eyes you just giggled sweetly before placing your
lips on his, breaking apart to mutter a “Hell yeah”
