i just like both of these scenes a lot idk

you know what would have been far better than a video for nora, which basically reduced the sentimental value of the video steven found for him back in lion 3?

what if the lost tape was still addressed to steven, but instead it was a sort of outtakes reel? rose was “rambling” in the tape for nora and honestly i really would have found that nice if it hadn’t been a tape that was pretty much identical otherwise and ultimately reduced the emotional impact of steven’s tape.

rose could get all worried about what to say to steven, resulting in a bunch of different outtakes and cuts and basically… “alternate endings” to steven’s tape. maybe an outtake where she’s guilt-ridden and says she wants steven to be nothing like her, an outtake where she accidentally goes off on a tangent about the gem war or greg, an outtake where she gets worried about how the gems are going to react to her decision, an outtake where she tells steven she’s scared and has no idea how this is going to work or what the consequences of having steven will be, and how that will affect him. 

but in each outtake you can see small snippets of her final, polished speech to him (for example she could start off a speech about how “the world is full of so many possibilities” but end up accidentally going off on a tangent about how her own possibilities and the situation steven would grow up in could have been far different if she had made different choices. she could say “every moment you love being yourself, that’s me, loving you” but then it segues into how she wants steven to be his own person and not her).

it would just…add some genuine feeling to the tape and make it seem like rose put a lot of thought into having steven instead of making both steven and the audience feel like he was “just another possibility,” which just ended up making the two tapes identical and making the scene in lion 3 lose its sentiment.

You never know, maybe now that teen wolf is ending we might see the boys soon! Idk that Colton video has me wondering what all goes on behind the scenes. Maybe Colton will inspire the boys.

Honestly I doubt we’re ever going to get the full story of everything that went on behind the scenes, be it show decisions, cast relationships, or anything else. Colton’s interview tells us a lot about what the environment there is like –– not just on the TW set but for young male actors in general –– but I’m not going to hold my breath for any big reveal interviews any time soon. They both have careers going on beyond TW, and execs to keep happy if they want to keep working and it… sucks beyond describing that this is the environment that they’re in, that all actors are in, but that’s not going to change once they’re set free from TW.

But I do hope that if the boys are being forced into the closet, be it contractual obligations or just general Hollywood pressure to be the “right kind of heartthrob”, they just find a way to be happy and feel comfortable with themselves. That’s honestly all I care about; that they’re happy.

How about headcanons for Dazai when he was working in the mafia but instead of him leaving his s/o leaves the mafia? (/ω\*)

Dazai:

[if he stays]

  • He’ll feel utterly betrayed. This was a time where Dazai wasn’t really able to see colors. While everything was grayed out, you were the only light in his life. He was surrounded by violence and bloodshed and believed that he was born to be a murderer, but you allowed him to see otherwise. You gave him hope. Until you left.
  • Dazai will get even more brutal than he already was. It’ll be as a result of his internalized pain and rage about having the one good thing in his life leave him. Poor Aku
  • He’ll break down if he ever sees you in the battlefield. However, the way in which he breaks down is unpredictable. He won’t be able to bring himself to kill you, but he’d definitely harbor feelings of betrayal and rage. Most likely, he’ll try to capture you so he can ask you why you left so he can have at least some form of closure.
  • He won’t trust people anymore. He took a risk with you and you betrayed him. Never again will Dazai Osamu be emotionally vulnerable. Never again will he let himself.
  • Even after he understands why you left, he never forgives you for leaving him without a word, no matter how much he might try to convince you that he no longer cares.

[if he goes with you]

  • It’s really not that hard to convince him to leave. If you have a reason, he’ll likely come with you. However, he might show some resistance if Oda is still alive (and before all the drama with Ango), although it shouldn’t be that hard to convince Oda to leave either, especially if it means getting further away with his children.
  • Dazai’s happier with you when you’re no longer in the mafia. He never has to worry about your safety, although he’s still on edge due to the possibility of Mori wanting to get rid of his “loose ends” by killing you.
  • You have to convince him to cap it with the pranks on Chuuya with the bomb under his car. He actually wanted to do a lot more like replace his wine with grape juice and soak his hats with Nair.
  • You both join the ADA whether the iconic scene with Oda happens or not. If Oda’s still alive, it’s actually still his idea, since he saw what a lifetime of violence did to Dazai and his underlying want to be good. 
  • Travel adventures with Oda??? Idk these headcanons went from just Dazai to also Oda and now I want you, Dazai, and Oda traveling the world with the children.

For the Hanzo x Widowmaker thing, how about they're battling it out, each really good snipers, and it ends with them out of ammo in close quaters. Kinda like that scene from Mr. and Mrs. Smith where it just evolves into passionate sex.

I’m actually really captivated by their dynamics. Both being snipers and their parallelism of ‘killing’ a loved one. I love Widowmaker’s seemingly impish and flirty romantic style matched with Hanzo’s stoic and brooding nature. I feel like they would understand each other a lot, and be able to feel free with each other, but idk man, this ship is kind of slaying me.

Just take this away from me, doll. please.


The Hunt

Venomous Arrow. Fluff. Slight Violence.

The arrow whistles past her ear as she jerk back against the wall. Her lips set into something like a smile as she rolls to the next open doorway. Her sights already trained on his stained skin through her scope. She pulls the trigger, but he’s half way out of the window.

Pulling back into cover, she reloads her sniper, the thrill of the hunt making her eager. They’ve been attacking each other since the little Overwatch team swooped in on her assignment. Reaper is somewhere, taking care of the others. For now, the archer is hers.

The hunt is reaching its climax, and she knows this is her last clip. She’ll make it count.

Rushing back to the over doorway, she takes a leap off the edge. Grappling hook shooting out and hooking onto a building as she swoops towards a lower structure’s rooftop. An arrow pieces through the night air, cutting the rope. At the sudden free fall, she braces her legs out, catching herself before rolling safely on her designated place.

Too slow, archer.

She knows the building he’s hiding in is connected to this one. With a backward glance, she slips behind cover. Setting in place her trap that will draw the unsuspecting man soon enough.

Dropping her renewed grappling hook against the ledge, she drapes down. Feet planted firmly against the side of the wall as her body stands perpendicularly. She waits, activating her recon visor, her head turning to catch the red outlined body of the archer slipping out the doors and to the opposite side of the building she hangs from. Smart. She didn’t think he’d scale up its side, instead guessing he’d go through the building to get to the door.

She doesn’t hear the sound of his feet touch ground as he makes it to the roof. Smart and silent.

Switching her gun to assault, she allows her grapping hook to drag her up. The angle shooting her up, over the cover and right onto the surprised Hanzo Shimada. His head looking over his shoulder up at her as her feet kick into his back, sending him reeling forward as she recoils back and lands on the ground. Her ambushed didn’t faze him enough, as he hits the ground but twists his gracefully body and comes up on one knee. Letting loose an arrow that almost pieces Widowmaker’s throat if she didn’t throw herself out of the way. She comes back up, finger pulling the trigger. The shots echoing on the rooftop as he ducks behind cover. Her finger releases the trigger, knowing she just has two bullets left in her clip.

As his pale gold ribbon trails through the wind, Hanzo comes up running around the opposite side of the cover. He fires an arrow, aiming for her eye. Her eyes widen as his rash and reckless charge surprises her.

She rolls forward, the arrow nearly pressing against her hair as she dodges it. He moves to meet her head on, the one clothed arm reaching back for another arrow. She meets him with the barrel of the gun pointed at his skull, finger settled on the trigger.

Hanzo’s fingers grasp at empty air. Widowmaker’s finger presses against the cool metal of the trigger, but doesn’t move.

He realizes his helplessness with wide brown eyes, before his brow narrows. His hands coming to rest by his side. Gloved hand curled into a fist while his tattooed arrow clasp his bow against his hip.

“Why do you not shoot?” He questions, smoky voice laced with an accent. Intense gaze focused on her, and the tip of her assault rifle.

The same question plagues her mind, but now it echoes in his voice. Deep and gruff and thick. She feels something inside of her shift. Warmth pooling in the center of her cold body as her eyes flicker for one moment to the tattoo that encases his muscles.

They’ve fought before. They’ve shot bullets and arrows at each other countless times. Yet, when she fights him, she never aims to kill him. She knows he does the same, because he had a clear shot in one mission set in Ilios, and he didn’t take it.

He let her live, as she lets him.

And she doesn’t understand why she does this. Is it just because her minds finds the glowering man interesting? Finds the dragon tattoo pretty on his skin? That he’s a brother to Genji, and somehow involved with how he became a cyborg?

Is he just a puzzle for her frozen mind to figure out, or does she wish to know the man that handles the bow so artfully, yet doesn’t kill her as he should.

“I’m out of ammo.”

Lowering the gun, she lets it rest against her lower torso. Lips settling into a faint grin as her brow raises slightly. His eyes narrows at the slightest of her movements.

“And I don’t hunt recherché prey.” Her voice light but holding its edge.

His startled expression is almost enough to make her laugh, but the way he turns his head slightly, as if to hide, intrigues her further.

“Is this a game to you?” He demands, eyes darting back to her face before turning his head. On his cheeks is the faints trace of pink.

Her eyebrow twitches as she takes in his flustered behavior at her flirting. Her eyes lighting in the slightest manner as this teasing revelation.

“I don’t play games,” She saunters slowly towards him, and he steps back once before holding his ground. His gaze unsettled at her passive approach. The archer is still cautious of the spider.

Good.

She finds her head tilting slightly down at him, taking in the gray strands of hair at his temple that spike outwards. The golden ribbon that flutters across his back. She leans closer, and finds he smells of cloves and sandalwood. Rich and intense. His disconcerted gaze locked on her but his body refuses to move.

“I fight battles. Do you not know that by now, archer?” Her tone soft, alluring. Tempting him to lean closer.

“Yet,” He breathes back, brow narrow as he refocuses, “You do not fight me.”

Her brow arches, eyes brushing over the strong cheekbones his face possesses. “You’re not a battle, you’re an entire war. I’m not going to win you in just one day.”

His eyes widen at the smallest fraction, his irises a carob brown that stay pure throughout the entire eye. No overlapping shades. No spots or dots of hues. One true color that looks back at her.

Then she catches the faintest hint of blood flooding his cheeks. She admires it for one moment the color over his elegantly sculpted cheekbones. Taking it to the mind, pressing it against the inside of her skull. Hoping that she’ll be able to brand it to her memories without fear of lost.

A pushed breath slips out of his lungs. “Lacroix-san, you…” He tries again. “I’m not…”

She laughs, the sure, stoic man is fumbling under her heavy gaze. The noise rising from her chest and trickling out of her mouth. He stares at her, eyes watching her lips. She takes note of the warm spreading across her lungs.

“Am I scaring you, archer? Do you fear my favor for elegant things? Perhaps I should—”

Her words are cut off by rough lips pressed against her, eyes caught on Hanzo’s knitted brow and trembling eyelids. The slight brush of hair that traces his upper lip. Cloves and sandalwood invading her senses as beams of warms penetrate her mouth. She finds for one moment, she wants him. She wants his kiss. She wants his touch. She feels something for the interesting archer.

Then his taste is gone, and she’s still caged by his form. Unable to blink, her eyes watch him slowly lift his eyelids. Gazing upwards at her, shifting his bow in his hands. His brow drawn, but his eyes softly resting on her.

“I do not fear you,” He says, then turns. Escaping the rooftop, he leaves her stunned by his kiss.

The archer she had just barely wrapped around her finger, leaves her speechless. Cloves resting on the tip of her tongue. The hunt finished, but with him claiming victory.

Très jolis archer, she thinks.


(Très jolis — Very beautiful)

parallels between the original 5/new 5
most of these are just vague theories at this point and im gna develop this later

obviously, homer/french- sports, strong connection shown thru the reflection scene (maybe french’s usage of coke makes him more susceptible to like.. casual interdimensional travel idk!!)
rachel/buck singing, the thing w/ the red backpack, rachel says that “there was a lot of hate in that town” gay subtext? (i wish) and buck is misgendered on a daily basis
steve/scott- scott rats out OA to hap, steve kinda rats out OA to his parents. theyre both just stonie dudes who get a redemption arc
jesse/rennata- jesses mom commited suicide and i guess is stuck alone w his sister and rennata feels trapped on the island

is it dumb i thought the pool scene in LiS episode 3 was... magical? Idk it really felt like it showed Chloe and Max's bond with each other had a lot of depth, and then continued on from there. I mean they always had a bond before episode 3 but i felt it more during that scene.

YES! Absolutely! I get really mad when I hear people say that moment is just for fan service. Because, like, the first time I played through that scene (precisely on Tuesday, May 19th 2015 at 3 am UTC lol) I was freaking overwhelmed both by its beauty, and its actual significance for the characters.

Like, I know the “Water as a form of Rebirth/Baptism” trope can be a little cliché at times, but here it works beautifully as a symbol of their revived relationship: their bond before that scene was still kind of weighed down by feelings of grudge on Chloe’s end, and guilt on Max’s.

But when they go into the water, they strip down from the usual “everyday armor” that they assumed through the past 5 years (Chloe’s hard punk exterior, and Max’s generic jane doe apparel), and only old Max and Chloe remain. That’s the moment their relationship can (and does) finally evolve into something more.

i always took the making keith cry thing in fic/art as a way to show that he's still emotional other than just.. angry or annoyed like he's portrayed a lot. i don't think it's to make him 'the girl', especially since the other boys have cried in canon. or well hunk and lance both have. i'm not saying you're wrong or anything, you raise a valid point, just.. idk i think there's more to it than just "you guys think keith should be the girl".

I mean, the only characters to have cried in canon are Hunk, Pidge, Allura and Lance, and even then, Lance and Hunk were comic relief scenes, so I’m not sure how much we should count those.

Like, I see where you’re coming from and I think there are others who feel the same, but I never see anyone talking about Keith crying as means to show a different emotion, all the headcanons/fanart I see is “Keith is crying for Lance/Shiro”.

And that just rubs me the wrong way.

NO REPOSTING WITHOUT PERMISSION thanks~

am i the only one who thinks it’s kinda fucked up that jeff davis had to convince daniel sharman to do 3b? because all isaac really did this season was have romantic scenes with allison…

like he convinced the guy to stay so he could make out a lot with his ex girlfriend when it really wasn’t necessary it didn’t serve anything it just seems like it would have made them both uncomfortable.
