i just love tina

Oh my god, in last night’s Bob’s Burgers, Bob takes Gene to a laser light rock show at the planetarium (super important to Bob, because it was his favorite when he was a teenager, and this is the last night before they’re closing the exhibit because it’s old and no one goes anymore, also it’s Bob’s birthday), and Gene has no idea what he’s in for, but he gets pumped for it anyway ‘cause Bob’s so excited about it, and finally they get in there and they’re watching it, and Gene has a sensory overload and kinda starts freaking out ‘cause he can’t handle it, so Bob takes him out and they sit in the car for a bit.  Gene’s angry because Bob didn’t tell him it would be so loud and scary, so Bob offers to play the album for Gene at a normal volume, and Gene starts to enjoy it, so he reclines the seats, takes out the cigarette lighter, tells Gene to pretend it’s a laser, and starts drawing in the air, explaining the plot to him (it’s like a full on Pink Floyd or Rush-esque rock opera about a bunch of robot overlords telling rockers that they can’t play music anymore, and one Rebel rising against them).  Gene gets really into it and decides he wants to see the finale of the laser show (which Bob regards as a life-changing experience), so they sneak back into the planetarium (there’s no re-entry allowed) with a few tricks that parallel the story from the album, and watch the climax of the show together (Bob fashions some earplugs for Gene out of a napkin).  On the way home, Bob’s asking Gene how he liked it, and Gene says “I loved it!”, Bob asks him to speak louder ‘cause his ear’s are shot, and Gene yells, “I LOVED IT, DAD”.  Bob yells back “I love you too, Gene”.

I FUCKING!!! CAN’T!!! DEAL!!!! WITH HOW GOOD THIS SHOW IS!!! I know i don’t talk about Bob’s Burgers a lot but this show is flawless and charming and gross and funny all at the same time, the characters are written like people with actual fears and anxieties, and unlike a lot of comparable shows, the comedy doesn’t come from the family being pitted against each other, it’s always the family against the world… I love it, I love it, it’s so pure and refreshing and still somehow manages to be funny without sacrificing it’s heart, and I fuckin’ love it, please watch Bob’s Burgers holy CRAP okay I’m done.

He caught her and never let her go again

“The one person that’s got it figured out in this family is Cole. You know, he sits on that can and he takes his dump, and he’s super happy.”

Films (re)watched in 2015: This Is Where I Leave You (2014), dir. Shawn Levy

okay here me out but what about no magic AU where Credence is telepathic and Queenie is a mind reader (basically an empath) in the 60’s and together they run a spiritualist shop above Jacob’s bakery where they do ouija board and tarot card readings for clients? like Queenie gets details about whoever the client is trying to contact, knows exactly what to say to give them closure, and Credence moves the planchette/rattles things on shelves/blows curtains to sell the ritual. they both see it as a way to put their abilities to good use that (usually) won’t get them into trouble and as a way to really help people with a service regarding subject matter that isn’t readily supplied in the growing commercialism of the time. they don’t necessarily believe in or dispute spirits or an afterlife fervently, its more just that they don’t know what’s out there, just whatever abilities they have and that surely there must be stranger things out there. Tina is an eager rookie police officer with her eyes on the cheif position who sometimes wishes her job was as fulfilling as her sister’s, and every client that leaves the shop gets a free pastry after the shock of it all.

BONUS if Tina’s boss goes missing and after months of searching and dead ends they fins the body of Percival Graves, dumped in the Hudson. distraught, Tina goes to Queenie and wants to try the board, not fake it this time and just try and get it to work. she has to find out who did this to him. she brings his badge recovered from the body and sets it carefully on the table, all sitting around the board. they’ve never actually tried to contact an actual dead person, so they warily place their hands on the planchette, Credence making sure to not accidentally move it himself, as Tina asks the first question. “Mr Graves, are you here with us?” they all hold their breath for an agonizing minute until slowly the planchette moves over the word ‘yes’. wide-eyed looks all around confirm none of them did that, and shakily Tina asks the second question, to prove it’s really him. “do you prefer coffee or tea?” the planchette makes an almost irritated shuffle beneath their fingers until it slowly slides around the board and spells out ‘w h i s k e y’. Queenie gasps, Credence jerks his hand away, and Tina faints in her chair.

(cue ghost graves grumpily hanging around queenie’s shop and criticising the hokey relics and knick knacks and griping about being dead while he helps tina and co try and solve his murder bc I LOVE GHOST GRAVES)

Katherine Waterston - SnitchSeeker interview

Some of these are just nifty quotes that I thought were useful as an insight to Tina’s character, others are really interesting tidbits revealed!

  • Waterston, who will of course be in all five Fantastic Beasts movies (since Tina’s alive and well in 2017, retired with husband Newt Scamander in Dorset, UK)

I don’t care, I’m taking this as confirmation she’s in all five movies.

  • I know that Tina was very important to Jo [Rowling] and, like Hermione, I think there’s lots of Jo – or versions of younger Jo – in Tina, as well.

Tina is important to Jo, which I’m sure we all knew but I just love that Tina is compared to Hermione in some ways because they’re both the main female characters – and I think that using this comparison kind of proves that Tina very much is the “leading lady” over the entire series (not necessarily EVERY movie but in general)

  • She’s very much dealing with an internal struggle and I think she’s on the precipice of some big shift, but it hasn’t quite happened yet. But she’s ready for it to happen.
  • (about Graves being Grindelwald) I think she has such great instincts – that suspicion had increased basically since the middle of the film, but there was just way too much chaos at the time to deal with it
  • Well, in the goodbye scene with Newt she says, “I wouldn’t be back on the investigative team if it wasn’t for you,” which gives you the feeling that there was some interaction that happened between Picquery and Newt where he explained why I was sufficient and all the good things I had done along the way – essentially put in a good word for me at the end of the film. And so, I imagine she’s doing what she loves best, which is working. She’s back on the team.

CANON ACCEPTED!

  • Well, I don’t know the timeline of the next film, but I did know that I do some traveling at some point. But I didn’t know it was within those three months.
  • I have a feeling she’s not on a vacation though.

And then there’s talk of the demiguise and dinner scenes!

Demiguise scene:

But something very emotional and intense is going on so basically in the real scene between the real Newt and Tina he’s confessing something painful and she goes to comfort him and then when we split into all of the possible future Newts and Tinas we did one where he walked away. Or one where we laughed about it. Or it kind of turned into something romantic.

The entire dinner scene section is great, so here it is and I’ve bolded the interesting bits that we can gawk over:

I think what you see there are two characters who are confronted with their own social limitations. That the areas in their lives where they really thrive. If he’s with his animals, he’s confident and he knows just what to do.
And although we don’t really see her thriving at work in this film, at work – that’s the place where the world makes sense to her. It’s what she’s poured all of her energy into in her life. In a sense, by mistake they’ve missed out on developing the parts of themselves that would allow them to just simply enjoy a dinner
. I think in that moment they’re both confronted with their own inadequacies and their shyness, so they’re recognizing something similar in one another, but also totally too limited to do anything about the fact that they’re realizing that they’re similar.
Then it’s almost made more embarrassing by the fact that the two people right next to them have no difficulty in this area. But, I think that the whole quartet tells a story of oddballs coming together and feel understood by one another. The same thing is happening for both couples in that moment. The ones that are having an easy time talking are finding that they have things in common and a connection, and the ones that are struggling are also finding a connection in that moment.

*pounds fists on table* give us fun facts about early manned space flight!!

YOUR WISH IS MY COMMAND TBH strap yourselves in this is gonna get long bcs!! astronauts!! are!! so!! cool!!

- during the first american spacewalk, or extravehicular activity for all you nerds, ed white was So Floored by the beauty of space that he almost forgot to come back into the spacecraft. he had to get back in due to Reasons, but he tried to use tacking more pictures as an excuse to stay out longer until his flight partner managed to and i quote “coax” him back in. all white said? “It’s the saddest moment of my life.” (still less terrifying then the first russian spacewalk tbh) 

- the first song played in space was jingle bells on an 8 note harmonica during gemini 6 by wally shirra, one of the orginal 7 nasa astronauts. immediatly before that they reported an “unknown object”. they reported santa’s sleigh. because of course they did. 

- hey you know that feeling when you’re on top of a 111m/363ft tall rocket that could cause one of the largest non-nuclear man made explosions if it failed? and your heart rate never gets above 70? yeah me neither but john w. young does. (for comparison: usually it spikes up to around 130-150. neil armstrong who?)

- speaking of john young, that man is a Beast. flew gemini, apollo AND the first shuttle flight. he also smuggled a corned beef sandwhich into gemini 3 that almost fucked up their electricity. because the space food they got was terrible, which i mean frankly i understand.

- during the assembly of the lunar landing modules, people weren’t allowed to bring screw drivers into them because if they’d fall, they’d break the floor. those things were FLIMSY. when they pressurized, the window would bend towards the outside. 

- yuri gagarin was a Delight for multiple reasons not limited to: introducing himself as the “world’s first spaceman” to some very confused soviet children and village people who probably thought he was a spy when he landed after his flight, sitting on a cushion as a pilot because he was too small to see and couldn’t stick his landings right since he couldn’t see the runway, shouting “off we go!” while being shot into space. nice dude. 

- apollo 12 was hit by lightning pretty much immediatly after take off. their entire console basically went “whoop de doo you’re fucked” and decided to give them a giant light show of warning lights. the only reason they didn’t had to do a super risky abort was because john aaron, flight controller extraordinair who’d later play a big role in apollo 13, remembered some obscure as fuck switch that could fix the electrical system and alan bean, astronaut who now PAINTS WITH LITERAL MOON DUST, remembered said obscure switch from a training exercise. the entire crew broke out into what one author described as “nervous giggles” after that. my favourite bit is how they relay the information from flight controller to flight director to capcom to pilot and EVERY SINGLE ONE says “the what switch now?”

- speaking of the apollo 12 crew: besides being an absolute Gem in general, they were music enthusiasts. pete conrad brought along a bunch of country and western music that the other two didn’t like, but alan bean was into top 40 which led them to sing and “dance” to Sugar, Honey, Honey on their way too the moon. holding hands and gently floating around. IN SPACE. what dorks.

- other reasons why apollo 12 is the best: they had matching custom painted cars that they drove around houston. ask me for more if you’re into lovely flight crew dynamics for all your au and hope in humanity needs.

- so the americans used to land their crews in the ocean bcs u know you have it why not use it it’s convenient. the soviets/russians don’t really have any suitable ocean around so they had to settle for land landings. which not only brought about the already mentioned gagarin incident, but in general led to some… fun incidents (iirc one crew got stuck in the tundra for like two days and met some polar bears). on the second ever soviet space flight, cosmonaut gherman titov (who also was the first person to sleep in space and get space sickness so u know), was seen ejecting himself from his spacecraft (they used to do that bcs they were #hardcore) and almost landed himself on some rail tracks before landing backwards, rolling over 3 times and getting a face full of nice dirt. some very lovely lady saw this and in her rush to be a Helpful Human drove SO FAST over the bumpy terrain that she banged her head on the steering wheel and “jumped out with a bloody forehead”. so his first task post! landing from the then longest space flight in human history? as the then youngest person in space ever?? giving first aid from his Spacecraft Medical Kit to a local lady. 

HERE YA GO your daily dose of Fun Space Facts. and this is just!! the tip of the iceberg!! there’s so much more!! female astronauts!! john glenne setting his house on fire to impress gherman titov!!! grammatical errors on lunar plaques!! mORE MUSIC IN SPACE!! PRANKS!! HUMANITY BEING COOL!!

55 and 98 (separate or together) for Jihyun/Eunbyeol.

Thanks for the prompts, dear! <3 I’ll post them separately because I apparently don’t know how to write anything SHORT for these two lmao.

So first, 55!

Spoilers for V’s route!


55.  “Let’s just relax tonight.”

The rest of the RFA descended on them in short order, with expressions ranging from Yoosung’s utter surprise to Zen’s delight. Jumin’s raised eyebrow and quiet words were completely lost in Seven’s boisterous greeting: “Well, it’s about time!”

“Two years, one month, and three days, exactly.”

Eunbyeol glanced up towards Jihyun’s face, blushing slightly at the warmth of the smile she received. “You’ve been counting?” she asked softly.

“Of course I have—”

“Get a room, you two!”
