PR relationship vs Private...

I’ve stumbled across a few fandoms in my time; real life ships vs on screen. Many who expose themselves pretty early on as being nothing but pushing a person(s) career along, networking a show, promotion of a movie or movie franchise and so on. It’s usually pretty easy to point them out; getting faces out there, carefully planned shopping trips or eating out in places ‘all of Hollywood’ go to eat. A stroll down a street that is ear marked by paps as the street a certain someone or someone’s will be walking; my PR calls your PR agency to arrange a time and a place.

I could list the amount of 'PR’ couples who have and still do just that, but I’m not writing this to name names and point fingers. I’m merely putting across that this did, does and still happens in the show business industry. And those who are new to following shows or movies with fandoms attached, better train your BS skills in to what is 'fact’ over what is 'fiction.’ A real couple (as in one who have got together privately off screen, regardless of time, work ethic or closeness) know the dangers involved in getting together; media attention, scrutiny from other cast, fan scrutiny and public appraisal or disappointment. Outside of work is very limited to where you can go without being seen, particularly if you don’t want anyone to know about you. It’s too easy to get trapped into that kind of pressure, actors are after all still human and stress over the same things you and I do. Except their lives are like living in a goldfish bowl, swimming around aimlessly while the outside world judges them and boy! Do we judge.

So…it’s not uncommon for a 'private’ relationship to remain private for the time being. If you are 'like most shows/movies’ a couple who are linked romantically in the storyline; your face and acting are the main base for promoting, it becomes even more stressful, when forced to understand that a movie or shows success rides heavily on your 'believable’ chemistry with your lead. When it becomes 'too’ believable, well that’s when tongues wag and if tongues wag it can mean failure to not only the show/movie, but also the financial investment (studio, media advertisement, merchandising, futures tie ins etc) as an actor you are known as the cash cow; marketing earns money of your back. A show that may have the prospect of longevity, does not want to damage itself, bolting before it’s been released from the stocks. Nor does the movie want to cripple itself financially, before it’s even released to the public. So yes, a 'private’ relationship between two actors can cause a huge headache for both investors, studios and networks trying to push an investment and again I will stress TV shows or movies are financial investments as are the actors, whose faces 'market’ that investment.

You’re only as good as your last performance.
Many believe that you have a choice, fans seem to think you can March right into the board of directors, demand they allow you to live your life, that they cannot tell you want to do with your private life as it belongs to you - wrong, so very wrong. Everything about an actor belongs to a studio. Your public life is a performance, your private life should never be seen. You are a piece of clothing, to be promoted, advertised, displayed and sold to the highest bidder…as long as your agent and manager get as much money as you are worth out of it, of course.
This is unfortunately the black and white, you need to earn money, they need to earn money, the studio or network of studios need money and financial investors need the money they put into the project they invested heavily in, in order to create a profit and success. Romantising in a different light does not work, simply because it’s not reality. Your 'private’ relationship is the difference between success and failure. Off screen romances are a huge no no, your agent, manager, studio want nothing more than it to remain hidden from the public. Studio bosses will be sweating with clauses you many have broken, NDAs are scrutinised and checked to make sure no leaking to the media happens…it’s a financial noose around a studios neck, particularly a very young TV show or the beginning of a movie franchise with the hope of more movies to come.

So…this is why a couple, who no fault of their own, but human nature, fall in love on set, off set - in the privacy of their own private bubble…find themselves in a situation were they cannot disclose what really is going on. Instead play the dumb 'we are best friends, best buddies, supportive and deeply fond of each other’ card. Except body language tells a different story.

The wonderful world of a 'PR’ relationship.
A relationship with nothing to hide. Happy to walk arm and arm down a busy street, go shopping together, get seen at wineries or dinner in an exclusive well known restaurant. Go to public events together or are simply seen as nothing short of 'fake Ken and Barbie’ it’s all to do with image, with promotion and little to do with personality. A good PR agent will see the opportunity of promoting careers, help image, get work. It’s all to do with networking a story, get the media chatting, all along its just a performance. Friends yes, they would need to have some kind of razor or slight chemistry to pull it off. Although there have been a few awkward ones in the passed where neither looked entirely happy to be with each other and yet were supposedly selling a sizzling romance? You also get others behind it; work colleagues, people with clout in the industry, well known faces or names to support this 'showmance’ and yes it has been done in the past, to act as someone’s 'beard’ (ie to cover up the truth) mainly due to the actors sexual orientation or (despise the use of the word gay) relationship with another… they are easier to spot, its always promoted in such a way to get it out there, it doesn’t gradually appear, it just gets put into the public eye in a way that just screams 'too much’

Don’t believe me? How many recent romances, indeed horribly ended marriages have happened due to PR? How many look at a recent paparazzi saturation of a couple, who just looks 'too convenient, too set up, short lived’ to not want you to roll your eyes so far to the back of your head? I can name a few famous singers, whose agency promotes that kind of romance; when an album or single is about to drop, or the eye candy at the time has a movie needing a lot of promotion? As I said PR romances or showmances happen all the time. Self serving for a period of time and then it’s time to move on. No self respecting actor wants their private life splashed across the media. Have fan sites dedicated to pap photos taken of them when they don’t want to been seen. Get hounded by endless questions by parasites (photographers freelance) at airports, calling your name, insulting the person you are linked with by nasty comments to get a reaction from you. That unfortunately is what happens when your 'private’ life is 'out there’ but a PR relationship they are humorous with. They, like other keen sighted people know it’s just for show, so don’t really make much of a fuss over it. It’s titillation, because they (media) know it won’t last for long…they never do.

So before you join a fandom of a movie or TV show, think long and hard of what you are about to get yourself into. There will be tears, there will be tantrums. And unless the object or objects of your desire are already married to each other or another person, then the likely interest will be purely on the cannon story arc and not off screen romances. But then again, frenzied fans see that as a challenge to ship the couple regardless and hate on their real life husband or wife, but that’s going down an even more darker path of fantasy. Or as it has happened in the past, marriages are tested when working very close with your co star, and unfortunately end. Sad but true - that’s just life…I suppose.

You swing open the door and when you see him, you can’t help but gawk at his beauty.

Before you stands Lin with his headphones around his neck, his hands are fiddling with the strings on his light gray hoodie, and his eyes stuck on the welcome mat at your front door. Your heart swells a little at the thought of maybe wearing his hoodie, before you remind yourself what a jerk he is and how he isn’t worth your time. He doesn’t look up when the door is opened, so you clear your throat to get his attention.

You don’t greet him with a normal ‘hello’. All you say to him is, “I half expected you not to come.” He scoffs. “Well, at least not on time.”

He smirks before pushing past you to step inside your home.

“You said that you hated when people are late, and the last thing I would want to do is make you mad.” You can’t help but want to smack the smirk off of his face.

Long fucking post ahead lmao so it’s going under a read more after the bullets. And just bc this specific fandom likes to comment on my posts all the time I’m gonna get this out of the way first and then talk about them more in the ask: 

  1. I know boat sex is going to happen. 
  2. I know the Targs have incestuous relationships and that Starks have had cousin marriages. (Although incest relationships also are portrayed as negative in both book and show but more on that later.)
  3. Yes, I’ve seen this coming. I know the series’ name, I am in no way surprised that Jon and Dany will be together in a non-platonic way. 
  4. Coming off that, I know the books will have them too. That…doesn’t mean I can’t still criticize the decision. You can understand why something was written and still dislike that it happened. 
  5. This is only going to be tagged “anti jonerys”. Not anything else related to the show/books. I’m not invading your tag, so you’re either on mobile where their filtering system sucks or you’re scrolling through the anti tags. Either way, please chill out about it.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a 2017 superhero film directed by Jon Watts. It stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton and Robert Downey Jr. The film is about Peter Parker and his struggles to live life as both Spider-Man and an average high school student. Meanwhile, The Vulture plans to hijack classified Avengers weaponry in order to sell them for high prices to arms dealers.

Spider-Man was always one of my favorite superheroes. I read about him, watched his first Sam Raimi trilogy and played the incredibly fun PS2 Spider-Man games for hours on end. Even years after, I still love the web slinger even though I despise spiders. Anyway, we saw our first glimpse of Spider-Man in last year’s Civil War, and in this film he finally gets to shine as an official member of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). Homecoming is much better than both The Amazing Spider-Man films, but still does not come close to the levels of the first two original Spider-Man films. In short, Spider-Man: Homecoming is unlike any Spider-Man movie you’ve seen before, and luckily it’s surprisingly good villain and raw energy of it’s star heroes save it from falling completely flat.

Let’s begin with what the film got right.

To begin with, villain. No, this is not the end of the world. I am not on drugs or incredibly drunk, I am actually complimenting a Marvel villain for once. It’s been years since I’ve done so, and all of this is thanks to Michael Keaton. The Vulture is by far one of the more well written villains in recent superhero movies. He is actually given a good motive, some good backstory and one hell of a performance from Keaton, who just has a presence whenever he is on the screen. He made us, for once, care about the villain. The tense scenes he shares with Peter Parker and the twist his character takes elevate him as a result. We know where he is coming from and why he chose to be bad, and that’s all I can ever ask for from these kind of films. What a surprise. Well done Vulture, he was by far my favorite character in the film.

Also, Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr. Andrew Garfield is a nice guy and a great actor, but I never really believed him as Spider-Man, with Tom Holland, I am almost safely on board the bandwagon. The depth and conflict he brings to the role is amazing, especially for a man his age. He portrayed Peter Parker as this immature kid, which he still is at this point, and gave us a more vulnerable side to view. His more emotional scenes were great, and he completely owned the characters of Spider-Man and Peter Parker. As always, Tony Stark is the coolest, suavest and most charming guy in the film. He plays more of a father figure in the film, but he nonetheless entertains. He steals almost every scene that he is in with the raw charisma he is famous for; Robert Downey Jr. was born to be Iron Man.

However, Spider-Man: Homecoming is, unfortunately, incredibly flawed.

Firstly, humor. Some of the humor hits, as most Marvel movies do, but some of the jokes in this film fall painfully flat. There are so many scenes where the audience was supposed to laugh, but were met simply with silence. There’s a henchmen on the villain side who doesn’t really do his job right because he’s such a doughnut, and not for one second did I think that his character was remotely funny or necessary. It’s as if he came from a different film. Also, most of Flash Thompson’s jokes fell pretty recycled and flat, as did a lot of the student characters jokes in the film.

In addition, romance. Spider-Man is famous for having iconic leading ladies such as Mary Jane or Gwen Stacy, but this time we are treated to Liz Allen. The film tries to portray her as Peter’s perfect crush, and suggests they may one day actually end up together, but not for a single second did I care. There was no chemistry between the two whatsoever, and their relationship was so forced and awkward. I could not care less where they would end up at the end. Zendaya plays Michelle, Peter’s potential lover as well, but her character is so unlikable that I do not want them to be with each other either. She is the typical annoying Social Justice Warrior pessimist you see online and that is by far the least appealing female lead character I can possibly think of. The mere thought of Peter and Michelle potentially together in the future does not excite me in the slightest.

To conclude, despite a shockingly good villain in The Vulture and some charismatic performances from Iron Man and Spider-Man, the film is weighed down by it’s flat humor and surprising lack of romantic chemistry. It will be enjoyable for the general audiences and most Marvel fans, but it’s flaws prevent it from being as good as it should have been. Nonetheless, I hope the series goes in new and better routes in the future with the universe and characters of Spider-Man that still needs much, much more exploring. I can still trust Marvel to do it justice, but this is one of their more weaker films in a while. Spider-Man: Homecoming receives an 7.1/10.

A ‘Passengers’ Rant

Would you like a completely accurate summation of the movie Passengers in one image? Here you go.

What the ever-loving fuck did I just witness? I mean, I’ve seen some offensive or problematic movies before, but Passengers is genuinely baffling me because of the artistic choices that were made. First off, I want you to understand above all that the problem is not the actors’ fault. Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence actually do have chemistry and it should have clicked and fit well. Hell, the reason I was gonna give this movie a try on my own before the epic backlash hit was because those are two actors that I love who are charismatic and likable and I’d have certainly enjoyed a film with them exclusively together.

However, this is going go down in history as one of the most offensive bait-and-switch situations between a misleading trailer and the actual product. Now, I can give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that maybe after the finished product was done and the initial reactions from the test audience came back, the movie studio panicked and decided to market it in a way to hide the utterly disgusting choice that Jim makes that actually creates the conflict in the film. Well, too bad, so sad. You let this psychopath write this script and make this movie with this horrifying theme and if you thought it wouldn’t do well, then you should have pulled the plug. I don’t know what kind of problems they might have had during production, but this is unacceptable.

Let me paint you the picture of what you would have had to endure, should you have seen this film.

There’s a ship flying to a new planet. The trip takes 120 years, so everyone is in hyper-sleep. About thirty years into the trip, a huge asteroid hits the ship and causes small malfunctions, one of which is a single pod opening. The passenger, Jim, races around trying to find a way to either fix it or go back to sleep, but he can’t. He spends a year or so alone and hits a low point before stumbling across the pod of Aurora (*cue massive fucking cliché eye-roll*). He looks up her info and finds her interesting and does that gross thing in movies where he falls in love with the sleeping woman and suddenly his needs mean more than hers, so he decides to wake her up. He omits the part where he woke her up so that she can die with him and courts her, but eventually she finds out and is of course furious. Meanwhile, the ship’s larger functions start failing one by one and one of the crew members accidentally wakes up as well. The crew member tells them which systems to try and fix before he dies and they fix the ship. They also figure out that there is a medical pod that can basically induce a type of hyper-sleep for one of them, but in the end they both choose to live the rest of their lives out on the ship together.

If you’re feeling vomit climb up the back of your throat, that’s great. That means you still have a conscience and a soul. Hold onto that, please.

Is that not the most disgusting fucking thing that’s ever been positively portrayed in a film since the faux-relationship between Leto!Joker and Robbie!Harley in Suicide Squad? It’s fucking heinous. It’s inexcusable. It’s completely not okay, and yet the movie seems to think that it’s romantic and they were overcoming the odds to be in “love” with each other by the end of the movie.

No.

Absolutely not.

This is not okay.

First of all, the reasoning is not strong enough for Jim’s horrifically selfish decision. Yeah, being alone for 90 years on a ship with only a robot for a friend would be a hell no one should endure, but guess what? There is no reason for you to drag someone down with you. I’m not saying that this kind of ethical dilemma hasn’t been done before, but I have never seen a movie that puffs out its chest and acts like the ends justify the means. In the movie Interstellar (spoiler alert) Matt Damon’s character couldn’t stand dying alone on a barren world and so he called the other astronauts down to save him, but the movie makes it 100% clear that he was WRONG and he paid for that selfish act with his life. Hell, that was one of the most satisfying uses of the F-word in a PG-13 film that I’ve ever seen in my entire life. (“You fucking coward.”) Furthermore, even Matt Damon’s character admits he was a coward. Owen apologizes, but it never hits home because there is no sorry. There is no apology for literally murdering Aurora for his own selfish reasons. She is rightfully furious when she finds out, but the fucking movie actually has her forgive him and choose to spend her life at his side as his wife.

Fuck. You. Sideways.

How dare you take her choice away. How dare you try to redeem this character. It doesn’t matter. The second Jim makes that choice, the audience mentally checks out because there is no redemption at that point. No one cares that he ends up saving the ship. It would have been better for them all to die on that ship together than for him to choose one person to die against their will because there was no way to put them back in the pods. It’s not possible to redeem that character.

And the baffling part is that this didn’t have to happen. The premise is actually fine the way it was presented in the trailer. If it had just been two random people waking up and having to accept their own deaths, but then they come together to fix the ship and save 5,000 people, then it would have been a fantastic movie. It could have been a deep character study and a subversion of the “fated to be together” trope. Imagine it. Imagine a sci-fi movie where two people are isolated together, and they start to like each other, but then encounter the natural conflict of a relationship. Imagine that they break up, but they’re all each other has. Imagine that they break up for simple reasons that people do. That could have been extremely interesting, to see the relationship start from scratch and then develop over time, fall apart, but then when the ship is in danger, they forgive each other and start anew. That could have been a fantastic movie.

Alternatively, if you’re a cynical person, then I have an acceptable way to keep the premise the way they wrote it without that foul ending. So Jim does wake up Aurora and she finds out the truth, and then the whole rest of the movie is her trying to murder him out of revenge. How fucking great would that have been? It would have given her agency, it would have given her excellent characterization as she unwound with rage and revenge, and it could give her the chance to redeem herself as she chose whether or not to kill him or let him live and just accept her fate without becoming the piece of slime that he was for waking her up.

What a fucking waste. That’s what Passengers is. A waste of time, talent, and an utterly reprehensible message that it’s okay to doom someone else for your own selfish reasons, and that you will in fact be rewarded for such actions.

I’ve tried to theorize if this movie would be less of an eye-sore if the genders had been flipped, but no, it’s just insulting either way. Granted, it might have been slightly more interesting if it had been Aurora who woke up Jim because it seems like the film leans on the “men are lonely and horny” trope pretty hard and I wonder if she would have held out longer with the decision to wake him up, but the fact remains the same. This is a blight on cinema. You cannot make a movie like this where a despicable act is portrayed as something positive. That is not love. There was no consent. There was no choice. And it’s worse because it involves two actors that I adore and I want to see them in projects that are worthy of their time. This movie is unworthy of anyone’s time or interest. It’s frankly one of the most offensive things I’ve seen in years and while I am sad that Pratt and Lawrence will have a box office flop, I am glad this movie is in the shitter because that’s what it is. A foul-smelling turd that should be quickly and quietly flushed down the toilet.

Oh, and don’t get me started on the Magical Negro trope they played completely straight with Laurence Fishburne.

Avoid this movie at all cost, chilluns. Don’t look back. You deserve better.

Kyo out.

How can a fiction film change your life

So. I LOVE movies. Like, really, REALLY love movies. And I have always, always, been desperate to connect with my favorite characters in said movies. That’s just the kind of person I am, I guess (doesn’t surprise you that I want to be an actor, does it?). I love old movies especially–I have since I was little. I’ve always wanted to connect with the amazing women in these old movies (and that’s the reason why I wear retro hair and clothes and makeup and have such an affinity for those kinds of things.) But there was always this one thing that I will literally never be able to connect with and that was the fact that these women loved men. These women were so exemplary for me and I just did not feel like I would ever connect enough with or be enough like them. All this nuanced heteronormativity in media just wears you down, and you don’t really realize it until you stop and think and feel like you’ll never be good enough to be one of these women who you want to be so badly because you like girls and there’s something wrong with you. And I found myself wishing that the straight women in old films liked women like me too, and then I just got more filled up with self hatred. It’s like, you seek this validation and you look in all the nooks and crannies that you possibly can, and you say “oh well in this obscure movie from 1937 this character doesn’t have a boyfriend so she COULD be gay” and then something like this is made, and you’re like “did they know that this is what I have been wanting and wanting since I was a little girl?” Seeing these two incredible women–the kind of women I have felt my whole life that I have not quite been good enough to connect with because of my sexuality–fall in love, and with SUCH incredible chemistry between Rooney and Cate–I literally cannot begin to explain how amazing it feels. I feel validated, acknowledged, visible, and so, so loved. And the fact that this film, which could have SO easily been messed up in numerous ways–a sad ending, an invalidating piece of dialogue, a misinterpretation of Therese’s and/or Carol’s characters and/or their relationship–is, in fact, an absolutely flawless piece of art, makes me so happy. It’s a beautifully, tastefully, exquisitely told love story, and the first ever love story to which I have actually been able to identify. The amount of security in my sexuality that I have felt since Carol came out has SOARED.  Also, not to mention, (and many of my friends think this is inconceivable but I swear it’s true) I literally did not even know that that feeling of your breath catching in your throat and your heart racing and how you sort of feel like you’re in love alongside them when you see an onscreen couple kiss or what have you–I literally did not know that that feeling existed until I saw “Carol.” And I got that physical reaction, and I was just so overwhelmed. I am STILL overwhelmed. This is something that Todd Haynes actually talked about. He said that Therese and Carol don’t have an example for their love. I’ve never seen a relationship on screen where I’ve felt, “that’s the kind of relationship, that’s the kind of love, I want.” But now I have an example. Therese and Carol are my example. I see them kiss and I feel my heart beating with them (which I’ve never felt before) and I see the way they smile at each other and the way they laugh together and the wordless interactions they exchange that show that the beauty of their love surpasses words–the simple, beautiful moments of their relationship–and it’s an example. And I see me. And seeing these women who I really identify with on all the levels that I do with all my OTHER favorite fictional onscreen women, and then for the first time in my life, having that extra level of “AND she likes women” is the most perfect feeling. This is what my soul has been searching for. I mean, this is the first time in my entire life where I feel accurately represented and visible and like MY story is being told. Yes, to many, “Carol” is just a movie. But for me, it’s a really big deal. And it changed my life. I consider it the best Christmas present (because it came out where I live on Christmas) I have ever received. Bar none.

Shibari [23] / Exhibitionism [24]

Not long after the pirate movie, they take a break from blockbusters for a little while. Kageyama is getting antsy from the endless fight scenes, and even Hinata finds himself leaning towards scripts with more dialogue than action breaks.

In the end, interestingly enough, they both end up gravitating towards a story that is still much more oriented in actions than in words. But it couldn’t be any farther from an action movie if they’d tried.

“We’re both really excited, actually,” Hinata is quoted as saying in a magazine interview. “Shibari is a very old Japanese form of bondage, and there’s a lot of history behind it. It felt kind of fitting for both of us to take on this project together.”

It’s a quiet, beautifully artistic film, minimal cast, small budget, very much a passion project. Even the director is an old friend from their days in Japanese cinema, now trying to break out in the west. There’d been a lot of buzz surrounding the film upon its release, which meant: guest appearances on talk shows.

“So, is it complicated? The tying—you both had to learn, didn’t you?”

They’re on a morning news segment to promote the film.

“Not very complicated,” Kageyama says. At the same time, Hinata puts his head down on the table.

“I feel like Shouyou has a different answer…” says the interviewer.

“It’s not complicated,” Kageyama says again, bluntly, “he’s just bad at it.”

“Well, fortunately, we’re about to get the opportunity to see for ourselves—”

About the “MILATHOS ENCOUNTER” interview


Damage control all the way.
There is no way an actor reveals spoilers without the approval of the showrunners. So the question is why and why now?
Let me explain:

As already mentioned this interview contained a HUGE spoiler, not only for milathos fans, but for fans of Milady and Athos separately, as well as fans indifferent to either one of them, who in regards to those characters also remember were they were left at the end of season 2, and either anticipated for or just expected their “reunion” as something crucial to both their arcs.

I think the words that were chosen are sadly diminishing to all the history of the ship, or at least to the, very much shown in seasons 1&2, affect those characters (good or bad) have on each other.

Firstly the reunion (notice the word “encounter”) is described as economical which is sadly true, and I say sadly because most people would agree, whatever the ending between them, these characters needed at least one long conversation about everything that happened.(but that is a whole other topic aka the “redemption arc” I am going to analyze elsewhere). And even with Maimie being available for only few scenes I’ll never understand why of all her 8 or 9 scenes only one was with the character she had the most history with, which also happened to be the one with larger arc this season, and that scene happened to be “economical” (at least with Treville she has actual dialogue!). For me the only explanation is the showrunners’ fear that the undeniably massive chemistry between the actors if expended in screen time would destroy any chance for any other believable endgame for Athos.

Anyway, then we have the “realizing that whatever was between them has slipped away”

The word “whatever” could imply the complexity of the things they were feeling for each other (which is granded) but sadly I just think it was used to avoid the word “love” between them.

I mean at this point, after seasons 2 ending where they were clearly willing to give each other a chance (the current showrunners  implied at the Q&A that he was even willing to leave with her, which I do not think was the case -for me that answer was also damage control) would it be so wrong  to use that word “love”?(even if only to state it didn’t exist anymore).

The actors in previous interviews weren’t reluctant at all about the characters feelings. Even in season 1 interviews, when they were pretty much antagonists (she trying to kill him, him believing her to be a cold blooded murderess), Tom reffered to Milady as the “love of his life” said “his feelings for her was something he could not control”, then about her return in season 2 (and although s1 ended with him still not believing her and threatening to kill her) he said “he missed his wife” and that “she was the biggest thing in his life, even bigger than the musketeers” and how her sleeping with the king made him feel “physically sick” and he “resented him” and her sleeping with anyone else “was a massive issue” for Athos.

Not to mention Maimie’s interviews were she spoke for both the characters and said they were “definitely The One for each other” and they both know they “love each other” even if they won’t admit it and that Milady is the only one that can tell him that he loves her no matter what cause that’s the truth.

What I’m trying to say is if the point was to just to say that it was over between them (which partially is) he could (and would be more natural to) use the word “love” because: 1. In the fans’ minds (even anti-milathos fans) they were one of the 3 pairs of the show and the question was about the return of Milady aka Athos “one time Lover” 2. It wouldn’t contradict the previous interviews and most importantly the story arcs of seasons1&2, and of course it would be nice for us if at least that “once existing love” was acknowledged!

I think that acknowledgment had to be avoided because God Forbid anyone reminds the fans that these two were ever in love! Now, its obvious in S3 that for the showrunners  Milady’s arc continues from season 1 (for them season 2 doesn’t exist, oh the irony!) but even in that season’s interviews, as mentioned above, the milathos relationship was acknowledged more…

Then we get the oh so nice “slipped away”. Now for anyone who actually viewed that scene, regardless of their feelings about either of the characters, I think I can safely say that the words “slipped away” were soooo unfortunate to describe it.

THAT SCENE WAS SO DAMN INTENSE!!! I mean his reaction to her is so visceral: she is sitting down (so not even her whole figure showing), her hairdo is new, he only sees her back and the minute he enters he just knows it’s her… and he nearly has a heart attack!!! And I haven’t seen anyone mentioning it (probably bc s3 doesn’t exist) but when he freezes, catches the doorframe for balance and just as the camera moves to her turning around he sighs “Anne” (reminded me of S1x3, ah!). And from that moment and throughout the whole scene you can hear him breathing so heavily, like he is fighting for air (as in s2x9 after the kiss, ah). He walks to her before he even say a word and holds her, caressing the back of her neck and then their lips collapse! THAT KISS! And once again he is the one that deepens it, so much hunger and longing, you can see her head lean backwards from the force with which he sucks her! And he stops, sighing a whispered “God”, trying to catch a breath, lingering a little his forehead and nose against hers, tells her she should go, so eagerly like he is afraid and needs her to go (he actually says “you need to go”), no explanation, and after only few words (and the way I see it yet another miscommunication between them) HE CHOKES HER! And if chocking isn’t intense I don’t know what is! It doesn’t even matter what you see in that scene- some people saw just shock, distraught, attraction, distrust, I personally saw regret, longing, lust, anger and hate (I’m sure some milathos fans see love at least in that kiss, if just their twisted kind of love),- what matters is the intensity of everything about it.

IT IS EXACTLY THAT INTENSITY SCENE THAT CONTRADICTS THE TONE IMPLIED BY THE WORDS “SLIPPED AWAY”.

For me “Slipped away” implies quietness, calmness, indifference. It suits relationships ending due to the inability of lovers to provoke intense emotions to each other anymore, which usually comes with the triviality of everyday life, something fading slowly over the years… and the realization comes naturally,  still bitterly but almost painlessly just as a circle comes to an end and there is nothing left to say.    

And I don’t see that being the case here.    

So there are two options:

a.)either they were really going for that idea and completely failed to deliver it, which for me, given the undoubted talent of both these actors and their tendency to deliver so efficiently every scene, the way it was all directed, and the lack of dialogue about “whatever was between them”, simply isn’t the case.

b.) this is just another attempt at damage control (along the line of all the spinning going around from the showrunners in their interviews)

I think they all have seen fans reactions in the social media and yes there were fans that loved this season but unlike the previous seasons there are also many fans that really hated the season! And from what I’ve seen a really large majority of them (especially on twitter) are Athos’ fans (and not milathos fans).  Now given the fact that Athos’ arc is huge this season and many devoted fans are Tom’s fans they know this negativity will affect how the whole show is perceived.

What most fans disagree with are the changes in Athos as a character but also his new romance storyline and since a big amount of his screen time involves his new love interest they need to do damage control and try to sell this new ship. From what I’ve seen there are Athos fans (especially those who love book Athos) that just hate the idea of romance for him regardless with whom, others that think that in order for this new romance to work the writers changed (destroyed) Athos character, others that loved him brooding the previous seasons and don’t like the fact that he suddenly seems so open to a new relationship (again this has to do with the changes they see and can’t accept), others that just aren’t satisfied with the development of the relationship (too fast from bed to love), others who just hate the Sylvie character or find it underdeveloped and many others that just hate the lack of chemistry between the actors.

I’ve seen Athos’ fans that are anti-milathos/milady’s haters (because she is “bad”) and still hate Sylvie even more (although she’s “good”) or are just so frustrated by the lack of chemistry that say they would prefer him with Milady, and other fans, not necessarily milady haters, that all they ever wanted was for Athos to find a “new, healthy” love and just be happy and it still didn’t work for them!

As for the others fans in general (Constagnan, Annamis shippers), some are indifferent to the new character, some like it, some find the character annoying (many due to the amount of screen time she gets for no valid -for them- reason) and many criticize the lack of chemistry. Overall and for whatever reasons most of the fans who don’t like the Athos/Sylvie relationship (and I’m sure there are many people who love it) describe it as forced and unbelievable.

So for me the showrunners just want to make that ship more believable and more easily accepted by those who haven’t seen the series yet.

Why give away such a spoiler?

I mean there must be fans who anticipated for that meeting and stayed spoiler free, why ruin it for them? Wouldn’t it be more intriguing if the fans got to watch the Sylvie/Athos relationship develop having in mind that Milady was to return later without knowing what the outcome would be? Wouldn’t that keep them hanging on their seats? Those are valid thoughts so why? Why give that spoiler? Because they have more to gain than lose at this point!

In regards to the people who anticipated for that reunion those are the milathos fans, and given the fact that we knew Milady’s appearance was brief its safe to say that most hardcore milathos fans (even if they planned to  see the whole season when aired) couldn’t wait for that particular scene and have already seen it. Yes there are still a few who haven’t and I am really sorry for what’s in store for them (I saw a twitter the other day –before the interview- of a fan asking about Milady and the glove, and Simon Allen answered he hasn’t forgotten about the glove and the fan was happy and I thought ahahaha!). So maybe now knowing the outcome some milathos fans won’t see it, but most of them would think why not, they waited so long and it doesn’t sound that bad, just bitter sweet, you know “slipped away” …. They will probably think that Milady and Athos are going to have this nice, quiet conversation and part on amicable terms…  So there won’t be many casualties in viewing numbers.

Now apart from the milathos fans, for the others fans why not use the intrigue described above (who will he choose?). Answer: it simply wouldn’t work in favor of the new ship. Why? Because there will be those who will love Sylvie/Athos from the start, but for those even slightly skeptical (and given the fans reactions so far, there will be many) it will be much easier to accept the new ship if the air was cleared about milathos from the start. I mean I think most fans if they thought that Athos was going to face that dilemma (given S2 end and at least at the beginning of this season) they would assume that Milady would be the obvious choice, and even if they hated the idea of milathos ending together the fact that it would seem most likely  would prevent them from investing in the new ship.

Furthermore the fans know that Athos (season 1&2) was obsessed with Milady for years, therefore he  was reluctant about romance and the fact that he just jumps into a new relationship so quickly and early in this season does seem strange if not unbelievable, so it’s better if the fans have in mind from the start the “Milady curse” has been broken, so the character changes may be more easily swallowed (not that I believe they have anything to do with Milady).

Finally, as the interview reveals milathos is not endgame, fans now will also know who, by default, will be endgame and even just that knowledge sometimes works in favor of a ship, you accept it as inevitable, so you focus looking for the nice things about it, dismissing the annoying, or wrong, or unrealistic ones..

In My Way - Chapter 5

AO3 link, First Chapter

Genre: Chaptered. Actor!Dan AU, fluff, bit of angst, slow burn, getting together (eventually)

Summary: Fiction. Daniel Howell is 21 and Britain’s newest star. He’s just been cast in the much-anticipated film adaption of Last Man Standing, the popular teen fantasy novel with a huge fanbase hanging off his every tweet. In other words, Dan has made it big.

Phil Lester couldn’t care less. He’s a stressed out PHD student working part time at a bookshop while he struggles to get into post-production. He’s 26 and still lives in a tiny flat on the fifth floor of a building with a lift more broken than it is in use. He loves books, but he thinks big film adaptions screw with the plot too much.

Needless to say, Phil is less than impressed when Last Man Standing is getting filmed in his hometown. And he certainly doesn’t want anything to do with obnoxious, arrogant, so irritatingly perfect leading actor Daniel Howell.

Warnings: Swearing, Ace!Phil, Bi!Dan,

Word Count: 3000-5000 per chapter (ish)

Morior Invictus

It’s been nearly a week now, and I’m still feeling deeply affected by Person of Interest’s latest casualty. This show has killed a LOT of recurring characters in its run thus far (literally about half the cast, in fact), but this one has unexpectedly proved to be the most emotionally powerful loss, for myself and for quite a few other fans as well. So of course, I'ma have to write up a bit on what I think makes this death work so damn well. Spoilers under the cut, obviously.

anonymous asked:

Joe is misunderstood as being anti-Gendrya. He's not for it at the moment for obvious reasons but he acknowledges that its part of their characters arcs. But frankly he'd get more flack if he said he was for it. Can you imagine what people would say? The only negative things I remember him saying was when he said he couldn't seem to get away from Gendrya and when people kept critisizing him on his portrayal,he said he didnt care because his job is to play whats on the screenplay,not the books

I really know only a little on the interviews, whatever makes it around tumblr, for Joe and Maisie. 

I do think that he should have read the books, if only for a better picture. The show loses a lot of backstory and characterization and his portrayal could have benefitted from having all the information. 

But from his interviews that I’ve seen, I think it’s clear that Joe is just clueless on the Arya/Gendry stuff because he hasn’t read the books and the show changes their relationship a lot. I think that just makes him confused more than anything.

What do you make of the Arya-Gendry shippers?The people who pine for a relationship between the two of them, because of their chemistry on the show?
I think it’s that thing where everyone always has their first crush, and I think Gendry is Arya’s first crush, so I’d imagine it’s young girls, young women who are keen on this happening. It’s a romantic idea, and it’s a nostalgic idea as well, but I don’t know if it’s plausible for the story line. I think it’s far more interesting whether or not they will ever meet again. They make a pretty good team in the various situations they’ve found themselves in, but whether or not that will be of significance down the line when it comes to the endgame, who knows? [source]

Joe also seems to like to talk about Gendry sitting on the Iron Throne…

I think it’s clear that he’s not hateful or unprofessional and just doesn’t understand the series that well because he hasn’t read the books. 

And here’s another moment he speaks of the relationship:

From what I gather in the books, there’s kind of an implied potential romance there for further down the line. But the way the casting is on the show, that’s not going to happen. […] Now she’s shared her secret with him and he’s promised to keep it safe. I don’t think Gendry has ever been given that level of responsibility before or ever felt like people trusted him enough to do that. I think he looks upon her as a little sister now. That’s something he’s never really experienced before. The other way around, he kind of reminds Arya of her older brothers. [source]

He makes it very clear that while he acknowledges the fact that Arya and Gendry have hinted at romantic relationship in the books, he doesn’t really care because “the way the casting is on the show, that’s not going to happen”. That’s what I talked about here and here.

The thing is that Joe wouldn’t want to have a romantic relationship on screen with Maisie- he met her when she was even younger than she is now- but people are making huge assumptions about his professionalism if they think he would just not do what the script says. And in the last couple seasons, when Arya and Gendry are reunited (like I am almost sure they will be,) that might happen. 

And Joe admits that his shirtless scene was because D&D were trying to imply Arya had feelings for Gendry, I just think he doesn’t understand why people would want/assume Gendry has feelings for Arya. But like I was saying earlier, that’s due to his own ignorance of the books. He sees himself (26 year old) and Maisie (16 year old) and thinks it’s creepy that people should want me to be interested in her- because he’s thinking of them (the actors) and the TV show. He doesn’t think of himself as a child though he is intended to be one in the show (see Thoros’ line in 3x02) and so he doesn’t get it. And the show also decided that rather than have Gendry be the more heavily invested of the two, they would have it be Arya, and that’s likely because of Joe and Maisie’s ages.

But really, I laugh at anyone who thinks this is weird for ASoIaF and GoT. I mean Jaime and Cersei are twins with a romantic relationship, there are implications for Sansa and Sandor though she’s 12/13 and he’s 27/28, Dany’s 13 and forced into marriage with an over 30 year old man she never met, incest is completely acceptable if it’s cousins, and that’s just the romantic stuff. That’s not normal for us, but it is almost par for the course with the series which is based off Medieval times. There are some actually weird stuff in the series though.

I mean someone took off the head of a boy and sowed it on a wolf and paraded it around for crying out loud.

Arya’s 9-11 in the series and Gendry’s 14-15. She meets him at 10 when he’s 14. There’s nothing overtly sexual and nothing creepy.

Joe just seems to finds it weird for himself due to his own age and knowing Maisie so well, which is not the same as finding Gendry/Arya in general weird at all. And really, he doesn’t know the series, so why should anyone take his opinions on this as indicative of what will happen or whatever?

La Rumba

This is my first ever fanfic. It’s all James and Sharna’s fault. I may write more if I have time. Enjoy!


——————————————–


James is sitting alone in the living room of his new country house in Indiana. The huge flat screen TV is showing the live premiere of DWTS season 29. It has been 3 years since he was on the life-changing show. He can remember it like it was yesterday. It started simply as a stage to promote Indycar to a wider audience. He went on without any expectations but instead the whole thing went way beyond his wildest dream.

It was fun meeting Sharna, James remembered. They had same sense of humor. Becky even said that Sharna is the female version of James when they were at Sonoma trying out the two-seater. The first three weeks went really quickly with both of them goofing around during practice and Becky sitting in the corner watching. Becky was not wild about the Cha-Cha because she has never seen that side of James before, being all sexy and basically glued to another beautiful woman. She complained. James remembered saying that he was not comfortable too but he had to do it, so he invented Ricardo. Well, James felt something after the Cha-Cha. He was not sure what it was. Maybe it was just Ricardo messing with him.

Week 5’s tango was lauded by the judges and it gave James the confidence he needed to think that he might have a shot at the mirrorball after all. Then came the wicked Week 6. The Rumba.

“James, the rumba is a very sensual and sexy dance. Much more than the Cha Cha” said Sharna at their first session of the week.

“How can it be worst than the Cha Cha with all the grinding there were?” joked James while doing the ass grinding…

Sharna, unimpressed by his grinding, said: “Well, imagine having sex without actually showing the act of it. It is intimate, sexy. The dance before the act.”

James’s jaw dropped to the floor. Becky was fidgeting in her chair. There was a dead silence in the room.

“Don’t worry! You will be fine! Becky, don’t worry, the chemistry James and I have will be enough to get us through this. Remember Robert and Kim? They did a wonderful rumba and he is not even close to your level of goodness!”

“Uh…. didn’t they get married after the show?” Becky asked.

“Not because of the rumba!” said Sharna. “Come on, I already have something planned”

The next few days, James picked up the routine pretty quickly. But on Friday, during practice, Sharna looked a little preoccupied.

“What’s wrong?” Asked James.

“I don’t know. We are doing fine with the steps. But I feel something is missing.”

“What’s missing?”

“I think we’re missing the passion in the rumba. The lust between us and the urge of you having me and vice versa. That’s how I planned the routine and I feel it is incomplete.”

James didn’t know what to say. He was never in this situation before. He is not a dance nor an actor. It is hard to act as if he wants someone especially in front of all the millions of viewers.

“I will try to study videos of previous seasons and I will try to find a solution just like I have before.”

James, being a racing driver, is used to analyze datas from previous races to improve for the next race. That’s what he has been doing since day one of DWTS. Sharna was so impressed with his improvement, she one day asked him how he does it. Ever since that day, they will sit down together, looking at the tiny screen of his phone, finding things to improve upon.

“Babe, this is all you. I can’t help you this time. I’m a pro so I can turn the heat on anytime! If you cannot find a solution by Sunday, on Monday night I may just have to set you on fire to get the heat!!! Hahaha”

“Challenge accepted!”

The next two days were the longest two days of his life. Even worse than his rehabilitation after the accident. He already had a solution but he didn’t know how to implement it. It was easy enough just by pretending she is the woman of his dream. But during the practice, he was unable to show it. By Sunday night during the camera blocking, Sharna told him not to worry that their routine is good enough to go through the next round even without the intense passion.

“It’s unacceptable!” thought James. “I will not settle for second best. I have to give it all!”
“For this once, I will love Sharna with everything I’ve got. She is my love and she is my life!”
Deep inside, Ricardo is laughing. “ Yes James. Yes. That’s right. You know you want it to be true for sometime now.”


Monday at the dress rehearsal, Sharna noticed something is different. Good diferente. She noticed the way James looking at her was diferente. “Maybe I’m imagining but this is good for the routine. Not enough but good enough.”


Just before their dance, in the red room, James came close to Sharna and whispered into her in a musky voice: “I love you.” She was caught off guard. “I love you too babe!” She said.


At their starting position, she felt James. Not because they are touching each other. But she felt his yearning, his wanting, his desire of having her. She felt his love for her. It was something that never happened to her before. EVER! Not even with Paul. The sexual tension is palpable. She was so surprised. The only way she can do is to reciprocate the feeling during this dance. “He wants me and I want him. He loves me and I love him. I will take all his love for me and give him back more. We are one and we are for each other.”


During the routine, every embrace was tender and loving. Every spin was powerful and with passion. Every touch was electric. James was on fire and Sharna was surprised.


The only person in the room who could feel this was Julianne. She saw the potential of this partnership. She saw the potential for it to be much more. Being a dancer, she knew this kind of opportunity didn’t come easily or ever! She wanted Sharna to be happy, so she wickedly planted the seed by giving a 9 and saying that there could be more chemistry.


After the live show, Sharna took James aside and asked.


“What happened tonight?”
“What? I told you before the dance in the red room.”
“You love me? I don’t understand”
“Sharna, I decided that in order for me to overcome this obstacle, I have to love you. I have to love you with all my heart.”
“James… I felt it. I felt your love. It took me by surprise. It was so intense, so raw. I never felt anything like this before. Thank you.”
“But still not enough for Julianne.”
“Don’t worry babe. From now on, I will love you back. We will show the world how beautiful our love is, even just for a short time.”


And the rest is history.


James, standing up after finishing the premiere, turn around and look at his trophies. He had just won his second Indy500 championship which are the two centerpieces. Next to his trophies are the two Emmys of his wife. In his heart, he always regrets not winning the mirrorball with Sharna.


He heard someone approaching behind him.


“Are you thinking about the mirrorball again, babe?
“Yes, I don’t know why. It seems to be more important to me than the Indy trophies.”
“Well, I just got a call from the producer of DWTS. They will be doing an all-stars season for Season 30.”
“Really?!”
“Yes, really.”
“Aww muffin, we are gonna crush them and we are gonna make history!”
Sharna laughed wholeheartedly and said:
“Yes my love, the first ever celebrity and pro married couple winning the mirrorball.”
“I think we need to make more room for the mirrorball, hon.”
“You didn’t do that for my creative Emmy! I hate you so much!”
“I hate you so much too!” He leaned in to kiss his beautiful wife with the biggest smile on his face.

Always Your Hero

Request(s): One where Chris and his significant other are being interviewed together, and the interviewer makes her get upset. Chris comes to her rescue. / One where she’s crying about the hate fans are giving her, and Chris comforts her.

It wasn’t any secret that interviews with magazines weren’t your favorite thing in the world. Well, at least it was that way to your costars. Your boyfriend, Chris, in particular, knew just how much you hated them. Somewhere between the too-personal questions and awkward-filming, a natural spark of hate emerged into your heart.

However, just as he always did, Chris found a way to make things better for you.

And this time, he pulled a few strings so that way you and him would be interviewed at the same time. Really, you knew that you kept him around for a reason.

You and Chris were walking down the hallway to the interview hand in hand. He was tapping his thumb against your hand, talking about the latest game that the Patriot’s had played. He was excited about the season that the Patriots were having, as usual. You were doing everything you could not to think about being interviewed, as usual. So, you nod along to what he’s saying, listening intently and trying to focus your mind on the way that Brady was proving everyone wrong. Chris stops speaking slowly, just as you both reach the door to the room of the interview.

“You’ll do great.” He murmurs, pressing a kiss to your hand before he has to release it. You nod, taking a deep breath. “Just don’t forget to breathe.” He teases, opening the door for you. You shake your head at him, a small smile on your face as you walk in. Chris follows behind you not-too-closely.

Because, as far as the media world is concerned, (Y/N) (Y/L/N) and Chris Evans are not romantically involved. And the both of you are quite content with that.

anonymous asked:

That quote from Carrie as a bellarke!AU. Clarke thinks Bellamy doesn't want to kiss her because he did it so poorly in their scene together, but he's actually just super awkward about on screen kisses?

Yes good this is the right fluff for before the premiere thank u anon

AO3


Clarke is a professional, which is what makes the whole Bellamy Blake thing so frustrating. For one thing, she doesn’t fuck her costars. Not when they’re her costars. And for another, she knows better than to read into on-screen chemistry. She’s done amazing love scenes with actors she loathed as people, so of course she knows that. Everyone knows that.

She just really does like Bellamy. She can’t help it. It took a couple weeks for them to get to being friends; he’d never actually seen one of her films, assumed she had the career she does because of her family connections, and had therefore basically been a dick to her off camera. Clarke is always happy to return dickishness with dickishness, and it made for a tense shooting environment at the start. But Clarke’s work really does speak for itself, and a few nights out drinking with the cast and crew had them talking, and then really getting along. Bellamy is smart and funny, with a sarcastic, self-deprecating sense of humor that Clarke appreciates. When the two of them get going, it’s like no one else exists.

So, in spite of everything, she’s been letting herself enjoy the development of their on-screen romance. Playing against Bellamy has been her favorite part of the film, and their chemistry really is off the charts, everyone’s said it. The flirtations they’ve filmed so far have been great, crackling with tension, and the scene where Bellamy finally loses it, gives in and kisses her, is amazing on paper.

It’s just that–the reality kind of sucks, honestly. Bellamy’s got this reputation, one of those Hollywood heartthrobs. He had a different model on his arm every week for the first few years of his career, although he’s gotten over it. At thirty, he told Clarke the novelty of having meaningless sex with beautiful people just because he can has worn off, and Clarke can relate. And it’s not like fucking models is a sign of actual sexual prowess, but–he slept with Clarke’s friend Raven, and dated one of Raven’s friend ls for a while, and Raven’s reaction to Clarke booking a movie with him had basically been, “Yeah, get some.”

But Bellamy is awful in the scene.
