Hey @ newsies fandom I know most of you have seen newsies live in theaters but remember there is one more showing on Wednesday and some people (like myself) have to wait a few more days so please don’t post all the little things that made it so awesome to watch so please stop post spoilers until after Wednesday (also remember this is the first time a lot of people are seeing the stage production and really want to be surprised)
so I’ve noticed that there are…a couple of issues with the way ichi is portrayed in fan works (and by that I mean he’s flanderized – which means to take one single trait of a character and to exaggerate it until it consumes their entire character – or he’s given an out-of-character portrayal altogether), and this post is here to address those issues as well as cover ways on how to give him a more accurate portrayal reminiscent of the character in the show!
do note that I am in no way trying to boss anyone around on how to portray ichi – you are free to portray him however you wish, and I totally get it if you want to explore all the different ways to do so. on the other hand, if you do want to heed my advice because you find him particularly hard to figure out (and trust me, he is), by all means, go ahead! this is partly for myself, too, as I’m writing an ichi-centric fic and want to have some sort of reference to guide me through.
Since youtube blocked my video last night for copyright reasons, I figured that this is the easiest way for me to share it with you. Even if I can’t share it anywhere but here and not even see how many people have viewed it or anything, I still really want to share it with you. So, let’s try again.
You have to click to “watch on [blog]” to see it, and if you want full screen, just click the arrow in the right corner of the video.
Ten months in the making. Ten months of manually removing the background music on every single clip using both of my laptops, my Sherlock DVDs and a portable writer. (It’s not actually literally ten months, I kind of took a long break between February and August but it just sounds more impressive with ten.) Many many thanks to @thejohnlockhell for being my moral support the past months, this video is for you.
Oh, and I definitely didn’t intend for this to be 45 minutes long. It just… happened.
Please reblog if you like it, since this is the only way I get to share it with people. ❤️
Once, when his uncles asked him what gift he wanted for his nameday, he begged them for a dragon. “It wouldn’t need to be a big one. It could be little, like I am.” His uncle Gerion thought that was the funniest thing he had ever heard, but his uncle Tygett said, “The last dragon died a century ago, lad.” That had seemed so monstrously unfair that the boy had cried himself to sleep that night.
harry saying nothing rn is totally cool and fine IF he’s still on hiatus and not dropping an album in 10 weeks (or less). the registration of a touring company does show an intent, regardless of when it’s going to happen. so, i really hope he’s not putting out an album until after dunkirk. mainly because he’s so distanced from 1D fans right now and it makes him look like a person that i know he’s not.
if he were to wait until after dunkirk, it would be perfect timing. he would have re-engaged his fans and also engaged new ones with dunkirk promo…awesome segue!
and yes, i’ve been a total supporter of harry’s right to silence during this hiatus. which he DOES have and it’s totally copacetic IF he’s continuing hiatus until around when dunkirk promo starts. but to just not be engaged at all and then suddenly drop something out of NOWHERE and just expect everyone to buy it just because we’re here…seems arrogant and presumptuous and i don’t like it.
so…in conclusion…i love harry TO DEATH, as if he were my own, but i don’t like this vibe right now. don’t get me wrong, i’mma still buy his album but…i don’t like the whole… situation (IF it is in fact, the real situation) and jeff should Do Better if this is happening Soon.
“I didn’t want it to be my way. I wanted it to be ours. Me and you.” “We’re still here. The two of us. We’re still standing.”
I’m still not over how Michonne specifies that “we” means her and Rick. Like a lot of characters, Michonne often speaks in plurals this way because family and solidarity are important themes of the show. And in the previous scenes like this, you can infer that while Rick and Michonne are having the conversation, the sentiments are equally applicable to the whole family.
And it’s applicable to the whole family here, too, but in this scene, the writers consciously put the group on the back-burner and prioritized Richonne.
In doing so, they illustrate how Michonne prioritizes Rick. Everyone is in this together, but Michonne is acknowledging that just the two of them are also in it together in a way that’s removed from everyone else - as leaders and lovers and parents and kindred spirits. So when something needs to be done about Negan, she doesn’t want to make anything happen unless it’s with Rick. And when she looks back at everything that’s transpired, she sees Rick as the person she survived it with.
Which, you know, shouldn’t come as any surprise because she’s in love with him and fucking him but it’s still nice when it gets verbalized.
He is honestly so important to her. This is the man who saved her life. This is the man who claimed to want her gone but repeatedly allowed her to stay. This is the man who cracked a fucking joke just for her. He told her she belonged with him them. He scrambled to the gates to see her when she came back from runs. He asked her to be a parent to his child. He brought her back.
The Agreste family is so rich that they can afford to commission Nintendo to make them one of those paintings from Super Mario 64 that leads to an alternate dimension where Gabriel vaguely cares about his son enough to put his arm around him one time.
