i just liked this shoot

I forgot! I did have a 504 story for you guys!

Okay, so we’re just about to start shooting 504. We shoot in New York, but I,  the writers, and the Network are in Los Angeles. I get a call from a pretty high-ranking crew member in New York. He says “Hey, so in scene 9 of 504, we heard that the writers are changing the Princess of Montenegro to the Princess of the Riviera, but in the script you just sent us, that change wasn’t made. What’s up?”

I’m like UHHHHHHHHHHH. THIS IS THE FIRST I AM HEARING ABOUT THIS.

Like we are JUST ABOUT to shoot 504. And our legal department had to check with the State Department to make sure we could fictionalize the royal family of Montenegro–this is going to take time! Also…………………………………..  “Princess of the Riviera” isn’t a thing. But okay.

So I e-mail the Johns and very diplomatically ask for confirmation that they want to do this RIDICULOUS thing.

BUT THERE’S A PLOT TWIST: They know nothing about this.

So the crew member in New York and I start calling up and down the chain on both sides of the country, trying to figure out WHO requested this change. Asking all sorts of people! Nobody in New York owns up to being the one who first heard about this, no one in LA has any idea what I’m talking about.

Well, FINALLY, we figured it out. Turns out, someone had a copy of 503. An old copy. You see, at one point, for legal reasons because I guess maybe it’s the name of a real gangster or something, we changed the name of the gangster after Red in 503 from Montego* to Rivera. And the first place we mention him WAS IN SCENE NINE, the very same scene in 504 when we first mentioned the Princess of Montenegro. This person looked down at their old copy of the 503 script, and said “hey, I’m like 99% sure we changed Montego in scene 9 to Rivera.” However, the person they were talking to was holding a copy of 504, and, not realizing that they were talking about different scripts, turned to scene 9, saw “Montenegro,” heard “Riviera,” was like “Huh, weird, I didn’t know we changed that” and THUS A RUMOR WAS BORN. 

WE PLAYED A LITERAL GAME OF TELEPHONE, YOU GUYS. So many coincidences had to fall into place for the mistake to have been made! They both were introduced in the same scene number! The two original names sounded very similar! “Rivera” sounds similar to a place where like maaaaybe you might have a royal family! 

At the end of the day I didn’t mind too much: it was pretty funny and I did not have to call our legal team and ask if they could put a rush job on getting permission from the State Department to fictionalize a Princess of the southeast coast of France. So, a good day!


*Not exactly the name we originally used (please don’t come after me, real gangsters!) but close enough for you to get the idea why the two words were confused.

So I live in Baltimore MD and am kind of freaking out because I just realized HOC is shooting season 6 now and Kevin is likely within double-digit miles of me. I may be going out on a limb here, but any ideas on where/how/when to spot him while he’s in my city?? I adore the man!!

#two very different relationships for shaw yet both so important #they both loved her so much but in different ways (one platonically and the other romantically) and its big because for someone that always thought something was wrong with her and no one would ever take the time to GET her #she ended up gaining two people that legit would’ve died for her and vice versa #they BOTH understood her and never judged her and loved her exactly the way she was #not to mention root and reese’s love for her even helped THEM bond in a way that made them start to care about each other #i just have a lot of feelings about these three tbh

The Time I Took On the Military (And Won)

Considering the staggering amount of votes this one got, here you go!

ok so it’s my sweet sixteen and i took two of my closest friends paintballing. We started off alone with just the three of us. Me and this girl formed a truce so we could take out her brother. He found a building with a roof to shoot from so i was criss crossing and sliding behind shelters.

Long story short with this guy i snuck up behind his building and shot him point blank in the ass while he was climbing a ladder.

Except now his sister is my enemy and a much larger threat.

I criss cross my way back narrowly avoiding being shot. I skid to a stop behind this bush with a really gappy fence and go GOOD ENOUGH BRING IT ON and poke my muzzle through. I cant particularly see but I remembered seeing her in a little chapel window. I aim that general direction and open fire. I immediately hear HIT. When she comes out i see where i hit her. Right between the eyes like I couldnt do that again if I tried. Ill take it.

We’re back at the base ops and these massive dudes come over like “yo wanna join us we need more players” and we’re like “oh ya bud the more the merrier” so we go over and everyone is freaking massive and there’s us three tiny lil teenagers. I over hear they’re a military team and just sigh because i know im dead this is just my luck

Apparently they wanted us so that they could simulate having civilian to protect, who were also armed. (They did a piss poor job of this seriously wtf)

So the game starts and im seperated from my friends. They’re on the opposite team.

Im sticking near the leader and just generally trying not to die. He’s giving me orders as softly and nicely as he can, thinking Im scared. I mean really who wouldnt be?

I wasnt. I was ready to kick butt. When I am silent, be afraid, im planning something.

Next thing i know he’s gone. Shot, running, hiding i dont know and i dont care i gotta move there are way too many heavily armed men in these woods for me to be comfortable

Im trekking through this woodsy area keeping as low as possible because the other team has a freaking sniper and im not dealing with that no thanks im just a tiny teenager leave me alone ok

Im doing my thing and trying to find people to shoot because everyone is mia when i see people ahead.

Not my people.

And they havent seen me yet. Im looking around looking for some decent cover or somewhere to take them by surprise and there is nothing. The entire area is just thistle bushes with massive thorns. And then my idea hits. A wicked, mischievous idea. I grin behind my mask and get ready to lay my trap.

I plop myself down right in the middle of these thistles and army crawl to the path their taking and just lay still.

These guys dont see me.

They’re not expecting someone to be in these bushes cause who is that dumb.

The one dudes boot is an inch from my hand and i spring up and yell SURPRISE before shooting him right in the chest and then the two behind him. Three down, way too many to go. I ran away cackling like a witch

Dont die dont die dont die

I head out again and meet up with some more of my group. They stick me at the back to keep me out of harms way. A valiant, if ineffective effort

Enter enemy attack.

We get split up into two groups to flank them and i end up alone again. I moving slowly, spinning in a slow circled because I am EFFED

I’m a tiny lil sixteen year old girl, all alone, with about 15 guns pointed at me. I was completely surrounded. My comrades who had fled to live and fight another day are now making haste towards me like WHO LEFT THE KID BEHIND HELP HER and im like

hell no i got this

I went absolutely ape shit on their asses.

Shots are flying around me like crazy and everyone is screaming. One of the enemies shouts FALL BACK WHAT THE FU–

I hear one if my partners like HOLY SHIT SHE’S ALIVE

I barrel over one of the attackers and side arm his gun away. I break out from the Circle of Doom and make a mad dash for cover.

I leap into the air and spin to fave them. Im not getting shot in the back I an a WARRIOR

I just start spraying with a battle cry to rattle the heavens

I smack back down to earth and land in a crouch

Every single one of the attackers were shot, usually multiple times, and i didnt get shot once. Frankly no clue how i managed but I am NOT questioning it. Luck or skill I dont care

Eventually it was down to two people. Me and the other teams captain.

He’s a big, scary dude. He had a custom gun that could pop off a frankly alarming amount of shots per second.

The odds arent exactly in my favour.

We find each other right in the middle with trenches and tiny little metal fences for cover. Im walking through like plz dont shoot me i am small be nice

The dude pops up from a trench and starts firing. No mercy here.

Fine then.

I duck behind a fence and it is the most pathetic thing i have ever seen.

I have barely enough room to crouch behind it because it’s so small. The other dude finds a nice big trench and big fence the lucky lil jerk.

So we’re poppin up like weasels trying to get a shot in. I cant hit him, he cant hit me. Up and down and up and down. My fence angles down ever so slightly so im tucked in as tightly as I could. My fence is rattling as shot after shot after shot hits. The shots stop, i poke my muzzle over the edge amd lay down some fire.

And the cycle repeats

I get tired of this little exchange so the next time he goes down i lay on some cover fire and sprint like hell for a near by trench like i am just bookin it thinking dont shoot me dont shoot me imma kill you

i slide in and pop up just as he rises to take a shot. Except im not where he thought id be.

I shot him right in the side of his bald lil head.

So i won. My team legit carried me on their shoulders back to base ops

And that’s the time I, a sixteen year old girl, beat a team of militarily trained behemoths

Because I needed a break from commissions and these shows are practically my life right now. xD

THE DEETS:

Keith (AKA ‘Red’ because he’s just that original) possesses the enhancement quirk 'instinct’, which essentially gives him the speed, strength, senses and reflexes of an animal - a lion, to be specific. Team that with a lifetime of combat experience courtesy of a shitty neighbourhood and an inability to think before he acts, getting into U.A. was a breeze - during his time there he was the best in his class.

Lance (AKA 'Sharpshooter’ because 'Cool Ninja Sharpshooter’ was apparently too long and too stupid) possesses the quirk 'Bullet Fingers’ and it’s pretty much what it says on the tin - the boy can shoot bullets from the tips of his fingers. The density of the bullets all depend on how much iron he’s consumed, so he’s got to eat a lot of red meat to keep his bullets effective. He was originally a student in the General course before wowing the teachers at the sports festival enough to get him transferred into heroics.

Hyuk forehead/middle-part appreciation post

I don't get people who complain that tracer being gay but not showing it in gameplay is cheap?

She’s the COVER of the game.

Having a lesbian be, like, the first character associated with the game is great.

Plus it’s a game where you supposed to shoot and kill the other team.

Where the hell was tracer supposed to be gay?

Like did you want her to hit on female characters in the game?? She’s dating someone, why would she do that?

Why is it so hard to tell a girl you like her??!
