i love and miss this show so much

anonymous asked:

Can you believe that every Larrie is now a certified entomologist?? I have been in different fandoms for the past 15 years and I have never learned as much as I do in this one! Haha love it

Pro for being a Larrie: 

  • Learning a lot of really cool shit with which you can impress people at dinner parties.

Con for being a Larrie:

  • They always pull crazy shit at stupid o’clock so you have to miss said dinner party and can’t show off your skillz. 

Do you ever think about Zoe Murphy and just start bawling

Requiem is obviously heartrending–she’s clearly deeply, deeply resentful of Connor, not only for terrorizing her, for hurting her, but also I really think for creating sort of a black hole in her family–everything was about Connor and everything about Connor was broken and destructive and terrible–but If I Could Tell Her makes me cry just as hard. Laura Dreyfuss’ performance is astounding tbh, and hammers home how much Zoe wanted a relationship with her brother despite everything: “he always seemed so far away/It’s like I don’t know anything.” It just breaks my heart how hard Zoe is trying to make sense of the Connor she sees in Evan’s letters and how incongruent that person is with the Connor she remembers, and also y'all, Zoe loved her brother!!!! She hated him but she loved him too!!!! Zoe Murphy is so kind and good-hearted and so lonely and I love her she deserves the world ok I’m just saying. I have too many feelings about these sad kids!!

Oswald was making sex faces through that whole song. Ed you naughty boy.


Watching episode 1 again, because the last time wasn’t enough, and the dialogue is so quick that I missed half of it. For example: It went over my head how much this show digs at all the classic superheroes.

Sam: I love having a sub-basement of solitude with our very own genius girl to think up wildly improbable stuff for us! 

That line alone just took a serious jab at about a million different superhero universes and I appreciate it immensely.

I miss the core four but I can't imagine the show without malia, kira and some of the others :)

i love malia and kira and im happy they were brought into the show, but if im being honest i would trade any of the new characters to go back to the core 4 they were what made me love the show so much in the first place I MISS THEM SO MUCH :’(

day 22: the reason i watch and love gtlive —

it’s those four dorks up there. they’re so passionate about what they do, and it shows. their humor and banters are amazing, and even as they pretend to insult each other, it’s clear that they’re all very close. they work so hard to produce the number of videos they do, and they’re always either incredibly hilarious or thought provoking, depending on both, what channel it’s for and what the video is on. team theorist and the three channels they’re spread over are such a vital part of my life, and i’m so glad i started watching. thanks for all you’ve done for us, team theorist and especially the core four.

have u thought that 13 reasons could be really bad? like the idea that if u kill urself it will make everyone regret how they treated u/everyone will love u now/ur friends will obsess about u and the world will be better in general if u do it? or that someone could/should "love you out of depression/suicidal thougbts?i read they ignored the medical professionals in the suicide-heavy town they based this on ? i also read that most professionals agreed showing a suicide is rly bad/triggering? idrk

that’s a rumour that they ignored professionals…I thought the same as you but I watched it and it addresses so much that I thought it wouldn’t. like it shows realistically and none of those things are true like they don’t regret what they did, they don’t “miss her now she’s gone” and they don’t think they could have loved her out of depression. I mean a lot of them don’t hate her either but it’s very realistic. the only reason it’s triggering is because it involves suicide in general but so did virgin suicides and so did troye sivans music videos you know what I mean? and there’s actual trigger warnings before certain episodes

I am literally sobbing because, with the end of Bates Motel, I am looking back on my two years of having this blog and I am just so happy that I convinced myself to make Emma. Through this blog, I have made such unbelievable friends, and I have grown as a human being. I feel like I have grown with Emma. Thank you to everyone for coming on this journey with me. 

I love Emma so much, and I miss her and the rest of the Bates Motel character already. I owe so much to this show, and to this community. You have gotten me through some really tough times. I feel so happy to have shared so many memories with you, and I will continue to make memories here, even though the show is now over. 

I’m so grateful for everything. I love you all so much and I appreciate each and every one of you. 

With love (and tears),

So I just saw [this post] on my dash and wanted to add on but the post was already super long so. Here are some things I’ve learned from about a decade of martial arts (both practicing, competing, and teaching) that might be useful for writers:

  • If your character practices martial arts at a school, know that every school will teach that particular style a little differently. 
  • If your character doesn’t have flexibility/doesn’t stretch. they. will. hurt. themself. trying. to. kick. Even if it’s just waist-high. People who aren’t used to fighting will pull something.
  • People who have been training for a long time will have stronger hands/feet. 
  • Grappling is dirty work. You’re on the ground, you’re grabbing what you can, it’s not as hot as you might think it is.  
  • Holds/grappling/etc. are ingrained reactions. If someone grabs your wrist, reacting immediately is something that is a trained reaction. Same with throwing someone over your shoulder. The steps are practiced again and again and again until they’re gut reactions. 
  • Building off that: even if you’ve trained with a million of these drills, real life is always a little different. You have to be ready to improvise.
  • For the love of all that is holy, karate is not a universal name for martial arts. There are usually modern/sport and traditional versions of martial arts. In my experience, bits and pieces from others will mix together. (for example, I learned a lot of aikido and judo learning self-defense in taekwondo)
  • The effectiveness of the way your character fights can depend a lot on where and how they learned how to fight.
  • This may not be important for writing fight scenes in general, but just as a side note: martial arts have philosophies. If your character is trained in a particular MA, make sure to do research on that philosophy. It might be important to your characterization. 
  • Getting hit hurts. Unless you’ve been fighting for a while and are used to getting hit, you’re gonna be shocked. 
  • The most strategic person is going to lose at least 80% of their thought-process when fighting. The RDJ Sherlock Holmes fight scenes? Where he thinks everything out? Nah man. A lot of fighting is muscle memory & practiced combos. 
happy things

• realising how much you’ve grown
• when the shirt you really want is in your size
• being with someone and feeling like home
• petting cute dogs you see on the street
• being able to sleep until noon
• watching an episode of a show you love a lot
• getting a good grade for a test you studied hard for (or not studied at all)
• first bite of a meal when you’re hungry
• being with someone and feeling save
• the smell of eggs and bacon in the morning

Dearest Jane Fans –

I want to begin this letter by telling you about the magic of Brett Dier.  He took a character – built from the beginning with secrets and moral lapses – and made him so likable, so funny, so sincere in all the right ways, that most of our writers’ room became #teammichael by the end of the first season.  And I honestly don’t think I’ll ever love a moment on our show as much as I loved Michael’s vows to Jane…  Which is to say, this was a devastating episode for us to write.

It was also a decision made very early on, when I thought about our story as a whole.  And even in season one, I knew it would be a hard thing to actually do, which is why there was a line (which many of you noticed) about how Michael would never stop loving Jane.  And the Narrator confirmed, “For as long as Michael lived, until he drew his very last breath, he never did.”  Honestly, I put that line into the script at the last minute to hold our feet to the fire, to make sure we went through with it.  Because even back then, the writers could all see the magic of Jane and Michael together.  Not to mention Rogelio and Michael!    

The other reason I put that line in the script was to prepare you… a little.  If the writers and actors loved Michael so much, then I knew it would be devastating for the fans.  So then, the only surprise we had left, was when…

And again – that goes back to the magic of Brett Dier.  Originally, I thought Michael would die earlier.  But Brett is such an incredible actor – he gave us such great comedy and drama and first-rate exposition delivery (!), often all in one scene.  And he and Gina… well, there’s that word again – magic.  So, we changed some things in the writers’ room.  Jane and Michael got married.  They had sex. They moved into their first home. And I’m so glad we did that and I’m so glad all those firsts for Jane were with Michael.  But this is a telenovela, as we so frequently remind you.  And we are only at our midpoint.

You’ll recall, back in the pilot, Jane was on a path.  Things were mapped out.  And then she was accidentally artificially inseminated and everything changed.  Well now, everything is changing again.  How does our romance-loving hero move on, how does she get back the light and the hope…?

Well, it’s certainly not quick.  And that’s why we’re now three years later in our story.  We’ll be flashing back to those three years and filling in gaps, but mining emotions realistically is something we work hard on and we knew the immediate pain of that loss would overwhelm our storytelling.  After talking to grief counselors, this felt like the right time to reenter Jane’s journey.  She’ll always feel Michael’s absence (and trust me, we will too), but it opens up our storytelling in new and exciting ways, while allowing for the light and bright Jane world that we love to write.  

Which brings me to something I feel really badly about.  The timing.  I’ve had so many tweets lately about how Jane is a bright spot these days. And I know you just watched a gut punch of an episode.  So, I just wanted to reassure you that Jane’s optimism will rise up.

Thank you guys so much for watching the show, for caring so passionately, and for going on our journey. And thank you so much to Brett. For his talent.  His passion.  His humor on set.  Michael will be missed in Jane’s world, just as Brett is already missed in ours.  

With love,

Jennie Urman
