i have a weird liking for this movie

Things I Wish I Knew Early On

I’m entering my junior year of college and have been creating a list of things I wish I knew earlier than now, like back in middle school or high school. Learn from me with these things, and feel free to add-on whatever you think fits!

  1. Buy Victoria’s Secret underwear and bras. The quality is way better than anything else and definitely worth the money.
  2. Go to the movies by yourself. It may seem weird at first but it really isn’t. Plus you don’t talk anyway. Treat yo self.
  3. Begin saving money early on. Save it all up. Travel with the savings.
  4. Don’t waste all your money on cheap clothes. Don’t solely shop at stores like H&M and Forever 21. Get the latest trends from there and that’s it.
  5. Spend more money for higher quality clothes. Especially for jeans. But don’t buy $200 jeans. $50-$100 is plenty.
  6. Work hard. Get a job. Even if it’s crappy. The experience (and money) is important.
  7. Study hard. Even if it sucks. I regret not trying harder in high school and am pushing myself more now in college (thus this studyblr). Learn all the things.
  8. Simple basic items for clothes look cleaner and are easier. Don’t wear tons of patterns.
  9. Buy yourself a flannel. A good, soft one too. Flannels are amazing.
  10. If someone doesn’t make you feel good about yourself, don’t spend time with them. It’s not worth it.
  11. Don’t keep tons of knick knacks. You don’t need them.
  12. Keep a decorative box and put small memories in them each time you do things. Ticket stubs, wrist bands, fliers. Then when it’s full, go through it and enjoy all the memories. Then, throw them out after and start over.
  13. You don’t owe anyone anything. No explanations. No apologies. (Except maybe your family). When you choose to give them those things, it will mean more because you will actually mean it and want to mend your relationship.
  14. Watch the sunset. It’s fucking beautiful.
  15. If you are not comfortable, don’t do it. Leave the situation.
  16. Learn the balance between school, work, social, and personal lives. Put equal time into all four. Even your personal life.
  17. You are your own best friend and will have your own back, so spend time with yourself. Treat yourself (but not too often) and enjoy your own company.
  18. Talk to yourself. It is good to be able to have a conversation with yourself and think things through fully.
  19. Sometimes you have to be impulsive. It takes just three seconds of spontaneity to get yourself out of your comfort zone. Sometimes this means making new friends or overcoming a fear.
  20. Life will tear you down sometimes. It is okay to cry. But just remember, when you hit rock-bottom, there’s only up from there.

As someone who generally feels awkward and uncomfortable with most romances in movies (perhaps because I’m asexual and most likely aromantic, I dunno) because most of the time they confuse me or seem forced or out of place, I honestly have to say that I love how they did the romance between Peter and Gamora over the course of the two movies.

It’s not subtle, I mean, even I could see that there was romance, right, but it’s not forced, or weird, or overrides the whole important plot just to push into the viewer’s face “Hey look they love each other they are going to get together”. There is a whole lot happening between them that doesn’t even have to be interpreted as romance – they fight together, they argue with each other, they share quiet and gentle moments of understanding with each other. They listen to each other about things they haven’t told to anyone else, because they didn’t have one who really would understand. They are ready to die for each other. They are family and friends and companions before they are lovers.

There is romance, sure, but it’s based on friendship and trust and family and it’s there but it’s not more important than the rest of the plot or the other characters, and it’s not defining for each of them.  

I just want to say Thank you for giving someone like me a movie romance that I not only understand and see, but also am comfortable and not awkward with. I think that’s the first time that has happened to me.

I pretty much just read all of Revelations and everything else you've written on AO3 today. Amazeballs is the only word I have. Also, my eyes are a little tired.

no it is YOU who are amazeballs. 

i hope you can rest your eyes with some cucumber slices on them like a fancy white woman in a movie in the ‘90s. i don’t think it helps your eyes but maybe that aesthetic will be exactly what you’ve been looking for.

or maybe you’ll make cucumber eye contact with the other nice lady from the ‘90s near you, also getting ill-advised cucumber eye treatments, and you’ll fall madly in love, and actually you’re soulmates and all of your Revelations were about her, so

Miracolina: I’m sorry, don’t you find them a little strange?

Risa: Did you see E.T.?

Miracolina: The movie? Yeah. Why?

Risa: Remember Elliot? He and E.T. have this weird and disturbing bond. If he got sick, E.T. got sick, if E.T. got drunk, Elliot got drunk. That’s kinda like Connor and Lev. Meanwhile, you and I are like the government guys in the white hazmat suits, you know, we’re trying to steer them in the right direction, but in the end, we just don’t understand.

Marvel: we can’t make one of our film or show leads Asian. That would be…. against the original source material. That’s also why we can’t make them LGBTQ+.

Power Rangers (2017): hey what’s up. 4/5 of our leads are POC. One is autistic and one is confirmed LGBTQ+. We have the first Asian superhero in a big-budget film, the first autistic superhero in a big/budget film, and the first LGBTQ+ superhero in a big-budget film. None of this was really in the original source material, but representation matters and we specifically casted them with the intention of making a diverse film.

Diagnostic criteria for autism are always so badly written.

Like, the trains thing.

I’m going to keep coming back to the trains thing because it baffles me.

So, the example used for special interests in a lot of diagnostic criteria is trains.

“Has an unusually strong interest in something - for example, trains”

And, like, sure. Okay. Special interests can be anything. Trains are a possibility.

But, like, special interests don’t appear out of nowhere. You generally have to be exposed to something first to get a special interest in it.

So, like, I know a lot of autistic people, and I know no one with a special interest in trains.

You know what the most common special interest is, in my experience?

Star Wars.

Yeah, go fucking figure, the ubiquitous movie franchise that almost everyone has seen at least one movie of is the most common special interest, in my experience.

Now, I do kind of understand the trains thing. The line between special interest and regular interest isn’t always super obvious.

Like, collecting Star Wars toys, or writing Star Wars fanfic, or marathoning the movies a bunch of times doesn’t necessarily make it a special interest.

And since it’s socially acceptable (especially in modern day nerd culture) to do all of those things, it’s not a glaring indicator of autism to outsiders.

If someone’s really into something obscure - like trains - however, it can make the fact that it’s a special interest super obvious.

But it’s still bad to have it be the go-to special interest example because it’s just not that common.

Plenty of autistic people don’t have obscure special interests. Their SIs are in the Marvel movies or Star Wars or Star Trek or Five Nights at Freddy’s.

Hell, part of the problem with women and girls not getting diagnosed is because no one notices their special interests in, like, makeup or boy bands.

When you use “trains” as the example, you’re sending the implicit message that special interests have to be obscure and out of the social norm, and that’s just not the case for most people - especially now that a lot of geek culture has gone mainstream and there’s a huge nostalgia cash-in.

Having a special interest in Power Rangers was weird for me when I was 14. It’s not now that it’s a big blockbuster movie and most people exposed to the internet review-sphere are at least aware of Linkara’s History of Power Rangers.

Special interests don’t have to be outside the social norm to be special interests. It’s how the autistic person feels about them and engages with them that defines it.

“Will you please tell me what they’re about?! How do you expect me to help if you don’t tell me?!”
“You should go and see someone about those nightmares. They’re only getting worse, aren’t they?”
“Can we sleep with the lights on?”
“I haven’t slept peacefully in weeks.”
“I can’t tell you my nightmare this time… It’s too bad, I don’t want to have to say it out loud.”
“Can I sleep in your room? I don’t think I’ll be able to fall asleep in my own bed.”
“I’m sorry for waking you… I had a really bad nightmare.”
“I can’t stop thinking about that weird dream I had weeks ago. It’s like it’s haunting me.”
“You look exhausted. Bad night?”
“Calm down, calm down. It was just a dream. It’s over now.”
“You’re overreacting. Everyone has bad dreams sometimes. No need to get all weird about it.”
“Are you still thinking about that nightmare? I’m sure it didn’t mean anything, okay? We’re not in a horror movie.”
“You should go to the doctor. These nightmares are making you miss sleep and you’re always exhausted. Get help.”
“How about you come and sleep in my bed? I’ll watch over you while you fall asleep, I promise.”
“I think I’d feel less tired if I didn’t sleep at all anymore. These nightmares are killing me.”
“I thought you didn’t get them anymore.”
“I guess it was a bad idea to watch a horror movie before bed…”
“When will you finally tell me what they’re about?”
“Wow, you look exhausted. Did you sleep at all last night?”
“Oh my god, that was horrible… that was so horrible…”
“How about you sleep in my bed for the coming days? It can be like a sleepover. I’m sure you’ll feel good enough and the nightmares will stay away!”
“I can’t breathe! It was real, it was!”
“Have you tried writing them down? They might go away if you do…”
“Have you any idea how worried I am? Please tell me what’s up with you or I can’t help! You look exhausted!”
“Please leave the light on.”
“Have you any idea what’s causing these nightmares?”
“I don’t think you understand how exhausting it is to not have had a good night’s rest in weeks.”

Humans Are Weird.

I’m a little late but here’s my addition to the trend:

Aliens are super confused about the humans ability to make connections. Like, we can look at something that shows no resemblance to ourselves and say “same”. Or we have favourite movies and songs because they remind us slightly if a good memory, person, or experience. What if that trigger in our brain that goes off when we see something vaguely familiar just doesn’t happen with interglacial species?

Human: dude, look at this is so me!
Alien: that’s just a picture of a cat.
Human: but look at the cats face.


Human: I love this song! It makes me think of road trips.
Alien: this song is called “the man”, it doesn’t reference roads, cars, or trips.
Human: yeah but just listen to the tune, it has that road trip ~vibe~ ya know?
Alien: what.

Leon the professional AU! watched this old movie yesterday, i kinda liked it. And i loved Matildas clothes… .  10/10

So in this AU Morty lives with his fucked up family, they get killed when Morty is buying stuff at the store,when he comes back he hides with this weird old man next door whos a hitman. Also i think .. . maybe the villain is The Devil? idk.  !! !1 um 

Also here, have some nice music ,  why not

If you had grown up with my parents, it would have been real weird for you. I didn’t grow up with both of them, but growing up with even one of them was not… I mean, I was on the movie-star map. When I was three hours old, I was photographed by Modern Screen. I don’t like being photographed. My father is now publicly saying that he took a lot of drugs. I don’t remember that. I spent my summers in Vegas. That was camp to me: sitting by the pool and hearing that weird music and having people paged.

Everything amazing in the Captain Underpants movie:
  • The inclusion of the ‘Everything Except Fabric Softener Store’ and the ‘Piqua Pizza Palace’ in the backgrounds.
  • The various art/animation styles used which really made it feel like a kid’s imagination.
  • Harold’s complete inability to chill.
  • “I noticed that this tuna casserole had your name spelled out on the top in jalepeno slices.” 
  • Ms. Ribble’s voice was PERFECT!
  • The entire scene where they reopen the closed off art room.
  • “You’ll have a weird haircut and I’ll be wearing a suit for some reason…”
  • Melvin actually, physically, has no sense of humor.
  • Edith the Lunchlady, enough said.
  • SAD WORM, JUST A WORM THAT IS SAD.
  • “We are so guilty.” 
  • How perfectly depressing Mr. Krupps house is.
  • “The bee is not the bad guy.”
  • Harold successfully parallel parking an entire construction crane. 
  • All of the comic book style scenes, and how much Captain Underpants ADORES the comics themselves.
  • “Benjamin Krupp you sly dog.”
  • “We’re closed for Ebola.”
  • The revenge of the Stuck-On-Hold Lady.
  • The army of Talking Toilets.
  • Edith is into Captain Underpants just as much as she’s into Krupp.
  • The inclusion of George and Harold’s ‘silly’ names from the fourth book.
  • Captain Underpants actually successfully flirting with Edith.
  • They mention New Swissland.
  • The inclusion of Captain Underpants’ catchphrase thing ‘Faster than a speeding waistband, more powerful than boxer shorts, and able to leap tall buildings without getting a wedgie!” 
  • THEY INCORPORATED THE FLIP-O-RAMA AND EVEN HAD ONE OF THE PAGES TEAR JUST LIKE THEY USED TO IN THE BOOKS IF YOU WEREN’T CAREFUL!!!
  • The unadulterated glory that is the Treehouse.
  • The Tattle Turtle 200
  • “I can pee a little in my underwear and no one can say anything!!” “Dude where are you going with that? Do you actually do that?”
  • “Not actual magic, we aren’t practising the dark arts…”
  • He didn’t say it but god if George’s face didn’t scream “I can’t believe I’m about to do this…” as he turned Krupp into Captain Underpants so he could save them
  • PROFESSER PEE PEE DIAHREANSTIEN POOPYPANTS ESQUIRE
  • “It’s a bird!” “It’s a plane!” “It’s an egg-salad sandwich!” 
  • “How many a’s does Tra La Laa have? I’ll just go with eleven.”
  • Mr. Krupp lives on Curmudgeon Road.
  • Underpanty World, led by Big Daddy Long-Johns and Princess Pantyhose.
  • “Potty humor is like, the lowest form of comedy.” “DON’T YOU SAY THAT HAROLD!”
  • MR. KRUPP READ ALL OF THE CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS COMICS AND ACTUALLY FUCKING SAID THAT HE THOUGHT THEY WERE FUNNY (Hell essentially froze over)
  • “Is that high def cause you can definitely tell that that’s us…”
  • Harold’s obsession with Dolphins.
  • “…how much of that was out loud…?”
  • Uranus
  • Captain Underpants putting all of the teacher’s in detention.
  • Professor Poopypants’ impressive collection of lip-balms.
  • Harold’s hand gets biggified.
  • The movie perfectly ending with George and Harold clutching desperately to Captain Underpants’ cape as he flies away while they shout ‘Here we go again!” 
  • The end credits all being actual comic style scenes from all the books.

Feel free to add your own!!

I Like You [Min Yoongi]

Warning: Contains smut. Do not read if you are underage.

A/N: This is very, very long. Grab a coffee, sit back and enjoy. Thank you to @katythekitty for your suggestions with the plot. I guess in a way this is kind of your requests? Idk. 


‘Y/n?’ Yoongi’s voice questions softly as you stretch across the floor of the dorm, arms reaching above your head to get into that tight spot in your lower back. His foot pokes out from his position on the low couch, gently nudging your thigh to roll you slightly on your side.

‘Mmm?’ You respond, the sleepy tone in your voice giving away the true nature of your state. The few cans of beer were sitting heavily in your stomach, a beverage that since your college days had always had you yawning before the night was over. Lazily, you flop on your side, scooting across the wooden panelled floors.

‘I was just checking you were still awake. It’s 2am and the movie finished. Want me to flag a taxi for you?’ You let out a slow whine, body wrapping around his feet to clutch his ankles tightly.

‘Why, you don’t want to hang out with me?,’ You pout, clinging to his legs like a small, fluffy koala. You could almost feel his body tense under your touch, an audible breath hissing through his teeth as your arms claw their way up his black denim jeans. ‘C’mon, Yoongyoong. I thought we were having fun. We are only two movies into this Harry Potter marathon… We’ve still got another 6 to go. Where’s your stamina?’ Your hands reach up to tickle behind his knees, before sitting upwards to envelop the entire lower half of his leg into a hug.

‘Fuck… you’re weird.’ His face was still flat, expression blank as he watches you crawl your way up his body, coming to sit comfortably next to him, lounging into the comfort of the soft black fabric of the long hoodie he had chosen to wear. Instinctively, your hands wrap around his waist, head placing itself in the crook between his shoulder and arm.

‘You love it, though, right?’ It takes a second, his body heaving with a deep sigh - the air of which dusts lightly across the crown of your head - before you feel his arm drop, grasping your shoulder and pulling you a little closer to him.

‘Not really.’ He responds just as flatly, a flicker of a smile lacing across his face so briefly you you wouldn’t have seen it if you weren’t trained in finding it. It’s the only evidence you have of what he was really saying.

Part 2| Part 3


Everyone cheered as I caught yet another raspberry in my mouth. Tom, Zendaya, Jacob and I were all hanging around the craft services table, messing around while the crew got ready to film the next scene.

I reopened my mouth and leaped sideways as Jacob tossed another raspberry into the air. When I caught it once again, I dabbed furiously to my right.

“Why are you so good at this?” Zendaya asked in disbelief taking a sip from her water bottle.

I shrugged my shoulders and caught another raspberry in mouth, this one being tossed by Tom. I winked at him as I started chewing it causing a blush to appear in his cheeks. “While some of us were mastering the art of dancing,” I started making a pointed look at Zendaya and Tom. “I mastered the art of eating.”

“Preach,” Jacob said raising his hand for a high five. I grinned and slapped my hand against his rather aggressively. He hissed and retracted his hand. “Dam that stung,” he groaned, cradling his hand.

I cackled and opened my mouth to give a witty retort when the Spiderman theme song started playing. My hands reached into my back pocket and pulled out my phone which was receiving a call.

This is a great breakdown of a trope I never thought much about: the (preternaturally) innocent sexy lady.  Some of the points he makes about the work this does for masculinity are really worth considering:

  • man is unthreatened by lady’s sexual history, or possibility of her judging his sexual performance
  • man gets to be heroically skilled for knowing things like “how to eat a sandwich” or “what is a microwave”
  • ignorance is sexy???
  • man gets to tell lady she is sexy; she doesn’t know she is sexy!  Sexiness is bestowed on her by a dude.

Two points which are not really developed by this, though, are:

  • I have always identified with the dude in these movies, and never really thought about it. I mean, I know How To Sandwich, so.  And also, I don’t think anyone at all would identify with the lady?  This is a weird character that I’m pretty sure doesn’t exist in real life?
  • This is definitely Mansplaining: Two Hour Erection.  Like, it’s a fantasy situation where the dude gets to mansplain EVERYTHING, and no matter what he mansplains, she’s like “Wow!  You’re so knowledgeable about stoplights, Brad!”
Who says I love you first - tree bros

• Connors fingers are gently rubbing circles on Evans back as it calms him down and lets him sleep better

• Evan starts mumbling things

• “Connor, pretty, hair”

• “eyes, yes, blue with brown patch”

• “Tall and lean. Mm”

• Connor silently laughs as he sees a smile form on Evans lips

• “love Connor. I love Connor. Very much. Yes. Love Connor.”

• Connor’s eyes grow wide as he continues to rub Evans back.

• Connor eventually shakes himself from the shock and just grins like a mad man.

• when the movie is over, Connor shakes Evan awake like always

• they order pizza

• while they’re eating the pizza and complaining about school and life and shit Connor leans over to Evan and pecks his cheek

• “what w-was that f-or?”

• “you, you l-love me?”

• “yes, and I know you love me too. You said so in your sleep.”

“The boy again?” Dan’s mum asks.

His stomach drops. His posture is suddenly straight as a pin. His shoulders are tense. His jaw clenches. He’s a cornered animal ready for a fight.

She glances at him and in a moment she reads that, then just rolls her eyes. “Oh, fine. Keep your secrets.”

I’m very Asian. I’m not your typical Asian-American that grew up here and only knows Asian-American culture. I lived in Hong Kong for 20 years and I feel more Chinese now than I’ve ever felt in my life. And so, I’m in a really weird position that way in that I’m really not of any culture anymore. I’m not fully accepted into Asian culture because I was born in the States. I’m not fully accepted into American mainstream culture because I’m Asian. And then Asian-American culture is very different as well, like I’m kind of all over it. And then now, I’m filming this movie in Africa where I have a home there. I don’t care if now it’s like I’m just a person in this world. I’m just going to do what I’m going to do.
