i must have watched it 100 times

When I was a kid, the Oscars felt like this impossibly larger-than-life thing. The first time I felt like I had a horse in the race was in 1990. I was 10, and The Little Mermaid was up for best song and best score. They did that crazy “Under the Sea” number with the late, great Geoffrey Holder and dudes in scuba outfits tap-dancing with flippers. We had a tradition of recording the show on our VHS, and I must have watched it a million and a half times. There was also an amazing Chuck Workman montage at the beginning of the show that depicted 100 years of filmmaking with classic scores. I was already in love with movies, but this was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen in my life. (x)

Lin-Manuel Miranda on His Lifelong Oscars Obsession and Why the Show Still Matters (Guest Column)

The Hollywood Reporter
February 20, 2017

During college, Lin-Manuel Miranda and a friend used to improvise interpretative dance tributes to best picture nominees at their annual Oscar party. “It was a lot of breathing and rolling around,” recalls the creator of the Broadway smash Hamilton. “We had a great Seabiscuit dance one year.”

For the New York-born son of Puerto Rican parents — his father a political consultant, his mother a psychologist — it was just another phase of a lifelong fascination with the Oscars that began when he was growing up in the Inwood section of Manhattan, playing and replaying the telecasts that his family recorded on their VCR. At 37, Miranda is about to cross the threshold from superfan to participant: “How Far I’ll Go,” which he wrote for the Disney film Moana, is nominated for original song, and on Feb. 26, Miranda (with his mother) will attend his first Academy Awards.

It’s an auspicious step in a career that will see him star with Emily Blunt and Colin Firth in Disney’s 2018 Mary Poppins Returns and collaborate with composer Alan Menken on the studio’s live-action The Little Mermaid, one of Miranda’s favorite films and, he reveals here, the gateway to his Oscars obsession.

My brain is a compendium of Oscar moments: Tom Hanks’ beautiful acceptance speech when he won best actor for Philadelphia in 1994. Roberto Benigni climbing over chairs and wanting to make love to everybody in the world when Life Is Beautiful won best foreign-language film in 1999. Kim Basinger presenting in 1990 and telling the audience that one of the best films of the year, Do the Right Thing, was not nominated. For her to take a stand, 25 years before #OscarsSoWhite, was incredible — and impressive because time has shown the prescience of that film.

I expect we’ll see more of that this year. It’s a political time, so I imagine the Oscars will look exactly like your Twitter or Facebook feed. Why should we ignore for three hours what we’re talking about 24 hours a day?

The Oscars were always a family affair when I was a kid. One sort of unintentional tradition we had every year was during the “In Memoriam” part of the show. My family called it the “She died?” section because my dad, who is pop culture-oblivious, would always go, “She died? He died? She died?!” the whole time. So, it was very sad and yet also very funny watching my dad catch up.

When I was a kid, the Oscars felt like this impossibly larger-than-life thing. The first time I felt like I had a horse in the race was in 1990. I was 10, and The Little Mermaid was up for best song and best score. They did that crazy “Under the Sea” number with the late, great Geoffrey Holder and dudes in scuba outfits tap-dancing with flippers. We had a tradition of recording the show on our VHS, and I must have watched it a million and a half times.

There was also an amazing Chuck Workman montage at the beginning of the show that depicted 100 years of filmmaking with classic scores. I was already in love with movies, but this was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen in my life.

That was the period when Billy Crystal was hosting, and I would memorize his musical spoofs of the year’s top films. He did them with Marc Shaiman, whom I’m working with right now on Mary Poppins Returns… I was a huge fan of those moments and musical numbers — they showed a genuine love of movies while still poking fun at them. I may also be the only person in America who laughed his ass off to “Uma, Oprah. Oprah, Uma.” David Letterman’s commitment to that bit was enough to put it over the top for me. He didn’t care if no one got it. In his head, it was funny.


Hosting the Oscars is not a thing I would ever want to do… You always have to do this dance as a host: You’re playing to a billion people at home, and you’re playing to anxious contestants in a room, and that’s an insanely hard thing to divide. It’s the most thankless task in the world. I have a pretty healthy ego, but it does not extend in that direction. I’d much rather be the guy writing the opening tune than having to deliver it.


Another Oscar moment that really stuck with me was when Whoopi won her best supporting actress for Ghost. I’ll never forget, at the top of her acceptance speech she said, “Ever since I was a little kid, I wanted this,” which is so rare. Then she said, “As a little kid, I lived in the projects, and you’re the people I watched. You’re the people who made me want to be an actor.” For me, it was like she was saying, “If you want this, you can get it, too. I’m proof that you can.”

I had been seeing myself in this world since I was old enough to do anything, and it was as if she reached through the screen to talk to me. I was that kid. Even my mother used to say, “Remember what Whoopi said.”

That speech was the inspiration for the opening song I co-wrote for Neil Patrick Harris, “Bigger,” for the 2013 Tony Awards:

There’s a kid in the middle of nowhere sitting there, living for Tony performances singin’ and flippin’ along with the Pippins and Wickeds and Kinkys, Matildas and Mormonses / So we might reassure that kid and do something to spur that kid  / ‘Cause I promise you all of us up here tonight, We were that kid and now we’re bigger


Another of my favorite moments was in 2005, when they had Antonio Banderas sing “Al Otro Lado Del Rio” from The Motorcycle Diaries, which was nominated for best song. And then when Jorge Drexler, who composed it, won, he went onstage and sang it, like, “This is how it really goes.” It was so funny and ballsy and great. I’m happy whenever Latinos win anything, so I was thrilled by both performances.

I can’t tell you what it feels like in that room because this will be my first time at the Oscars, but I can tell you why the Oscars matter. It’s a night when the arts and artists are formally honored, and this recognition is seen by millions of people across the country and around the world. The show inspires people to keep pursuing their craft, or to seek out the nominated films or the overall body of work of the nominees, and through that exposure, people gain a greater appreciation of what the art of filmmaking brings to our culture.

“Alexander left Lucrezia in charge of his affairs in the Vatican, something that had never happened before. He will do it three times: at the end of July to go to Sermoneta; September 25, when he visits Nepi and Civita Castellana, and October 10 to inspect the territories seized of the Colonnas.
[…]Making Lucrezia, at twenty-one years old, in a sort of regent at the Vatican in the matters of “ordinary administration“ that weren’t ecclesiastical, was an exhibition before the world of the confidence that the Pope had in her and of how much he valued her. It was not unusual for the women of the noble families to take care of the administration of affairs when it was necessary, and in Ferrara they must have valued this side of Lucrezia that added to all her known virtues. A unique situation in which a young woman of twenty-one heads Christendom.”

When you’re alone, silence is all you’ll know.
When you’re alone, silence is all you’ll know.
Let in the noise and let it grow.

When you’re alone, silence is all you see.
When you’re alone, silence is all you’ll be
Give me your hand and come to me.

When you are here, music is all around.
When you are near, music is all around.
Open your eyes, don’t make a sound.

Let in the shadow, let in the shadow,
Let in the light of your bright shadow.

A Christmas Carol, my favourite episode set in the future as requested by @lullapiee​.

So, I had a thought

Do you ever think about how touch starved Lup must be?

Like I’ve seen post about touch starved Taako but none about Lup (if there are I’m sorry, this post will probably sound stupid)

She was trapped in an umbrella for over a decade, if that doesn’t make someone crave human contact I don’t know what will. All she could do was watch her brother and friends get into trouble, get out of trouble, die repeatedly. How terrible it must have been to due again and again after having to do that for 100 years, but this time watching your brother die when he’s oh so close but you can’t hold him.

I wonder if she could hear Barry through the umbrastaff when he said they didn’t trust him, in the most heart breaking tone, when he said her name and she wanted to hold him close, to wipe away his tear and tell him it’ll be fine, that she loves him so much. But she just couldn’t. She had to watch, and hold herself as she fought off tears.

As soon as the umbrastaff broke open she just wanted to wrap all her friends in her arms and just be able to comfort them, to feel them and know their really there. But she still could because there was a battle going on, and because she was a lich and couldn’t really hold them.

If you think that after the fight they didn’t have a group cuddle session you’re wrong because they all needed that shit after all they’ve been through

Sincerely Three Cheering You Up

A/N: No one asked for this, no one wants this, but I could care less because writers block is hell and motivation is hard to come by and I’ve been feeling really bad recently so instead of what I should be writing I’m doing my favs cheering you up since it’s what I need right now. Not really Sorry. I’m trying to keep each one short but if you like the concept let me know because I have a lot more ideas for each character (yes that includes Alana and Zoe)!


Evan
- soft pure boy is the master of hugs 
- that means every time you are sad he wraps you up in the biggest and warmest and tightest hug he can manage and does not let go
- words are not Evan’s strong point so when you’re sad he doesn’t talk, he just hugs you and you can feel how much he loves you 
- he also has a stash of ice cream he keeps around for whenever you’re sad and brings it out with two spoons and you can just relax and eat and be sad 
- Evan doesn’t rush you when you’re feeling down, he knows it can take a while to feel better 
- compliments are hard so he just says “I love you” a lot 
- also cuddling while watching feel good movies is a must 
- plus little kisses on your forehead and the tips of your ears that make you blush
- if you’re not good with hugs at the moment, then he settles for hand holding 
- Evan is 100% okay with you crying on his shoulder and keep tissues near him at all times just in case you need them because he understand you just have to cry sometimes

Connor
- Connor likes you cuddle you when you’re sad
- just to make sure you know that he’s there and real and always will be 
- so often you two will curl up under a blanket and rest your heads on each other’s shoulders
- light kisses are an important part of the cheering up process
- Connor isn’t amazing with words but he will shower you with compliments and use every possible way he can to describe how much he loves you
- Connor has offered you weed as a way to calm down before: if you wanted to take it then you both got high together and relaxed on the couch; if you didn’t he respected that and never brought it up again
- Connor understands that it can be hard to talk when you get in this mood so he never ever pushes you
- Connor will sometimes play with your hair or stroke along your arm or leg because he knows it calms you down 
- if Connor can make you smile, he will, no matter what he has to do to do that 
- once he literally sat through two seasons of your favorite kids show because it made you smile and laugh and even though he hated it, seeing you laugh was completely worth it 

Jared
- I think we all know the meme lord is not good with feelings
- but that does not mean that he will not do everything in his power to make you feel better (no matter how awkward it can make him feel)
- you wanna talk about depression/anxieties/insecurities/etc.? Well Jared will talk about it even though he hates talking about it because that’s what you need
- you wanna sit and watch every season of Steven Universe without moving for hours? He will make you popcorn 
- that being said, Jared also has many tactics to make you feel better too
- he had about a million puns saved on his phone because the cheesy stuff is what makes you laugh
- bonus: he also has cheesy pickup lines that make you laugh your head off 
- plus Jared has a whole folder filled dog pictures, one with memes, and one with cat videos
- Jared’s goal is to make you laugh until you forget what made you feel bad
- but if you’re in the mood to just feel sad and work through your emotions? he gets it and he will be there with you every single step of the way 
- Jared is also down with cuddling when you’re sad and loves to kiss your neck lightly 
- oh wait did I forget to mention he will tickle you because he will tickle you into oblivion and it’s his favorite thing because it combines physical contact with making you laugh so of course he tickles you all the time
- Jared tries his best to tell you how much he cares about you and all the ways he loves you when he’s actually being serious though, and it warms your heart 


Okay okay that’s enough for right now but let me know if you want more???

not to discredit any of the work the boys did together as a band or the songs they wrote individually for the band to record, but after 5+ years of writing with the band in mind, or choosing music that had to suit all of their voices, it must feel SO GOOD to be able to write and choose music that is just for ONE person.

harry’s album is going to be 100% HIM, 100% what he loves and wants to write and record, and i couldn’t be more excited and proud to watch him show the world who harry styles really is.

Shortening a thread and making it it’s own post; 
We, as an lgbtq community, can not ignore our histories. The ugly parts, the confusing parts, the parts that don’t seem relevant. 
The cishets have tried since the dawn of time to crush any sense of continuity we have with our foreparents. It is a strategy of isolation, a strategy that tells us this is a new creation that has no rightful place in the world. 
We as a culture cannot ignore and abandon our elders, as the world has abandoned them. ( And I’d like to point out that by elders rn, some cases I’m talking about 45 year old mlmoc  [correction] black/latinx mlm in the instance of drag ball culture.)  We can not just listen to or white or cis elders, either. 
I’ve gone to gay bars and listen to countless old gay men who’ve had too many drinks recount to me, a 21 year old dyke, how alone they are in the world after their families abandon them only to watch friend after friend be murdered in the AIDS epidemic. I was the only person they had left to tell their story to. Their story was a story that deserved to be told and listened to. They were there to witness our culture’s history in ways I can only begin to understand through research. 
We have to listen, we have to try to understand the whole story. We can not choose the bits and pieces that fit our understanding. (That is not say you can not find what they are saying to be racist, misogynystic, transphobic, transmisgoynystic, or at times rather biphobic in some of my experiences, it does not mean you can not walk away if you feel unsafe at any point in the way they are talking to you.) 
I’m not going to tell mlmoc how they get to connect to their history. (Which by the way I’m learning dragy ball culture may date back to the 30s.) 
Butch and femme are critically important subcultures within the lesbian that have existed in this country for a very long time. We have our meanings, and we must protect those cultures the meaning is tied to. I am not denying that for a second. 
If a mlmoc watched Paris is burning, or perhaps sought out some of the few remaining drag balls out there, and saw themself in a way they hadn’t before. I’m 100% with them using the label butch. That is a part of our history that is not mine, and I happy to let the history I am a part of coexist with theirs. 
(While I was proven wrong re who can use butch, the stand alone noun, as an identifier, I still think the rest of this content remains relevant. )

“I don’t have a favorite Tobio. they’re all super annoying. Even sleeping Tobio is annoying because he’s cute. What a troublesome brat….”

For the S4 Ask Game: 3, 4, 31!

Thank you !!!

3. Favorite scene and why.

My favorite s4 scene is Jasper’s death scene. It was really difficult to watch because I loved Jasper so much and I hate what happened to him, but in terms of writing, directing, acting, etc, it was flawless, super emotional, subtle, just really well done : the dialogues, THE PAIN, Monty’s helplessness, Jasper’s parting words of love … Just typing this I’M SADNESS AGAIN.

4. Favorite Clarke moment and why?

I really loved Clarke in the “epilogue” of the season, that post-time jump scene, because it kinda looked like she was at peace, like she had time to heal, and she needed that after everything she’s been through, and all the people she loved that she had to watch die in just two years : her dad, her best friend Wells, Finn, Lexa. I know surviving this post-Praimfaya world while raising a child must have been difficult for her, but at the very least we know she had time to mourn and let go of things and I appreciated that.

31. Favorite quote from the season and why?

“Anyway, I still have hope”, because, again, that peaceful post-time jump scene and BECAUSE CLARKE IS HOPEFUL AND IT’S DOING THINGS TO MY HEART.

Can we talk about the intro sequence of Baahubali 2 for a second? The song “Shivam” accompanied with these visuals, which btw, leave me in awe because of how incredibly detailed these 3D models are, it must have taken so much hard work to perfect these, just proves right off the bat that you’re about to watch something grand and magical. I love the song so much I have listened to it like 100 times on repeat. I just can’t get over this song+visual combo.

(P.S- I’m sorry I couldn’t remove the text from these scenes, I genuinely tried.)

anonymous asked:

Can I have a scenario where Todoroki or All Might is with an s/o that has to babysit some of her cousins but she are really awkward with children? Like, they want to play and talk with kids, but they don't know what to do. But kids love All Might (because duh, HE'S ALL MIGHT.) or Todoroki (because of his powers!! Or the kids might think he looks cool!)

I do hope you like it! Thank you so much for making a request! <3

Shouto Todoroki
Babysitting was going great for Y/n, well, not really. She had no idea what she was doing and it was driving her insane. It’s not that she didn’t like kids, she actually really loved kids. The only problem was that she didn’t really understand them. She had no clue how to talk to them or even how to play with them.

The only thing she could do was stare at the little boy and girl as they played with their toys, while she just sat on the couch watching them. Y/n felt awkward just sitting there, doing nothing as the kids had fun by themselves.

It seemed like the world wanted to stop torturing her because the next thing she knew, the doorbell rang. Y/n jumped up and ran to answer it. Upon opening the door, it was revealed to be her boyfriend, Shouto Todoroki.

With a sigh of relief, she pulled the boy in begging him to help save her from her own awkwardness. Todoroki was completely confused until he saw the kids sitting on the floor.

The moment the kids saw his hair, they ran over to him and started asking him all kinds of questions, “Your hair is so cool! It’s so pretty? Is it real? Do you color it? Were you born with it? Can I have your hair too? Do you like it?”

Todoroki was too overwhelmed to answer any of their questions, but they didn’t stop coming. Instead, the kids changed topics, “Is your quirk as cool as your hair? What is your quirk? Is it strong? Do you use it a lot?”

Those questions he understood, and to their amazement, he made some ice appear and the kids lost it. They started jumping up and down, giggling and laughing about how cool it was, about how cool Todoroki was. It seemed like they loved him and they had only just met. All Y/n could do was stare at the three of them in shock.

Todoroki wad actually pretty surprised himself, he never actually talked to kids, not even when he was one himself. The only thing he did was show them his quirk, which must have been pretty amazing to them for them to act like that. As he told them more about his quirk, he started to wonder why Y/n had had a hard time talking to them. To him, the kids seemed pretty easy to please.

Y/n wondered how Todoroki could do that when she couldn’t even talk to them. It actually kind of bummed her out a bit seeing how much they liked him and not her.

When Todoroki looked over at Y/n, he noticed that she looked kind of down. It took him a moment but he realized it must have been about how easily he was communicating with the kids. In order to make her happy, he needed to get the kids to pay attention to her instead.

“You know, Y/n’s quirk is way cooler. You guys should ask her to show you,” he pointed at you, a soft smile adorning his face.

“Really?” they exclaimed.

Todoroki nodded and they ran over to Y/n, begging her to show them her cool quirk. She looked over at Todoroki who smiled at her. She mouthed a thank you before showing the kids her quirk.

Once she showed them, they were asking her and Todoroki all sorts of questions. The kids even asked if Todoroki and Y/n were dating.

Todoroki smiled, “Yes, we are. And I couldn’t be happier.”

Let’s just say, Y/n wanted to babysit the kids with Todoroki again.


Toshinori Yagi (All Might)
Dealing with kids was definitely not (Y/n)’s strong suit, that could be proven by the way she was babysitting her two little boy cousins. They had been shouting at each other for over 5 minutes over something about toy cars and she had no clue what to do about it. To be completely honest, she couldn’t even tell if they were fighting or playing around.

As if to save her from her misery, her boyfriend walked through the doors. To her surprise, he was in his All Might form. Before she could ask why, she heard the kids screaming from excitement, “IT’S ALL MIGHT! ALL MIGHT IS HERE!”

They sprinted over to him and started showering him with a million questions while Toshinori just laughed. He was used to kids being excited over him, so this was nothing new to him. In response to all the questions, he just picked up the two boys.

The kids started laughing and cheering him on, while Y/n watched. A part of her wanted to go and play with them too but another part of her was just really relieved that she wasn’t alone with the kids anymore. Now that her boyfriend was here, everything would be way easier.

Toshinori had set the kids down and sat with them on the floor, which to Y/n was a pretty funny sight. He was telling them what it meant to be a true hero and was going on about believing in yourself while working hard too. The kids just nodded along in amazement, their mouths forming huge smiles as he talked.

She decided to join them, so she walked over and sat next to the kids as he went on. One of the kids looked up at her, “Y/n, is All Might your boyfriend?”

Y/n nodded and smiled, “Yes he is.”

“THAT’S SO COOL!” he shouted, causing her to laugh. He started telling his brother and both were just full of excitement. Neither one could control themselves as they threw more questions at the two grown ups.

While this was all happen, Y/n couldn’t help but smile to herself. Talking to kids wasn’t as hard as she thought it was, and she wouldn’t mind doing it again. Well, if her boyfriend was there to help she wouldn’t mind.

“Hey young ones, how about you two go watch some TV? I must get back to being a hero!” Toshinori had asked after some time, it seemed he was running out of time and needed to go.

“Okay!” they each hugged him goodbye.

Y/n mouthed a see you later as Toshinori hurried out the door shouting, “Go beyond! Plus ultra!”

Y/n simply smiled to herself as she walked over to the couch to have a seat with the boys. Now, she 100% wouldn’t mind doing this again.

Alright, I’m going to admit it to myself. Forcing myself to try to get 4 more hours of art work done at home after spending 8 hours doing fucking concept and illustration work at a studio job is actually really unfair to me and probably the reason why I’m tired 100% of the time and panic attack-y 75% of the time. 

Everyone here would argue that the work/life balance at the studio is fantastic, but I’m realizing that i’m trying to have a work/work balance. What must it be like to get home and just veg the fuck out and watch TV and clean and play video games. 

The whole working artist thing when you have projects and shit you want to do is super hard and I wish I could figure this out.  Apart from quitting my job and starving.

anonymous asked:

I hope you paid attention to Lana last weekend. I hope you and your little group of immature friends will stop telling people she dissed GQ. She loved it. She loves working with Bobby. They didn't play father daughter relationship. Oh and the way Bobby talked about Belle? He was so bored! I can't wait for the Happily Ending Convention when he will talk about GQ too! Oh and the picture you used to diss me? HAHA. I hope you enjoyed your scenes: Belle looking at Rumple like he is the center of her

universe (bitch doesn’t even care about anyone else, at least Regina cares for her son and friends too and doesn’t just wait for Rumple to choose her… that’s the difference between a little girl and a woman) while he couldn’t care less. She keeps throwing herself at him and he doesn’t give a damn. He cares for her because she is the mother of his son (and Regina couldn’t give him a new child, even Pan made it clear Belle’s best quality is her fertility) but he doesn’t look at her the way he once did. Go rewatch the season, you won’t find one moment to show that he is into her. Once you go Queen, you never go bookworm. Of course Belle always was second best to Rumple because he never believed he could have Regina. Remember when he left her to rot in a hospital because Regina needed him to comfort her? But sure, GQ subtext is only in our minds. I can’t wait for Bobby to talk about this! I hope that will finally shut you antis up. Don’t you ever call us gross again or try to use Lana against us! She and Bobby love this story. But did you hear how Bobby dissed Belle? Go and gif that if you find giffing these conventions so funny! Go gif how Bobby and Lana talk about each other! Or is that not you your liking? So sad, remind me to shed a few tears for you. Enjoy the musical episode this week. Wait, I hear your little vanilla girl is not in it because Emilie can’t even sing! xoxo

Hey, first of all, wow, this was so fun to wake up to. I really appreciate it.

I have never claimed Lana isn’t good at working with Bobby, or that they dislike each other. I think they’re very close co-workers who obviously have good on-screen chemistry. HOWEVER, Lana did say Golden Queen was weird (Rebecca Mader did, too!). Lana called their relationship “whatever that was” - she didn’t call it a true love romance like you seem to think it is. Lana HAS said they played it as a father-daughter relationship. Multiple times. You coming to my inbox multiple times is the definition of pathetic. I have never messaged a “GQer” to tell them why I think they’re crazy. I keep that to my DMs or TAGGED posts. I’m sure Lana wouldn’t want you to insult one of her GOOD FRIENDS, Emilie. You’re clearly insensitive if you can’t respect Emilie choosing not to sing because she literally has a complex from a bad ex-boyfriend about it.

I would argue Belle cares about everyone in that town, given she is severely anti-murder and even hangs out with Regina, Zelena, and Hook, who have done the worst things imaginable to her/her significant other. But you REALLY must not be watching this show if you don’t know Belle cares about HER SON more than anyone else. 

I saw zero indication Rumple wanted a child with Regina. He wanted one with CORA, you know, her MOTHER (thus why Lana/Bobby treated it as a weird father/daughter relationship, because she could have been his kid). GQ subtext is 100% all in your mind. Regina locked Belle up because she knew Rumple and Belle were True Love and that she could use Belle as a pawn against Rumple, which she has done, multiple times. Rumple told everyone he would kill them if they hurt Belle in his absence when he went to New York. Regina then ALTERED BELLE’S ENTIRE MEMORY/PERSONALITIES, because the way to mess with Rumple is THROUGH BELLE. Belle wasn’t pregnant in Season 2, they were just dating, so you can’t say he protected her because of Gideon. Rumple also stood with Snow and protected her against REGINA after Cora’s death. Later in Season 4, Regina took Belle’s heart and gave Rumple a tearful reunion with Belle, so she could get back to Robin Hood, aka her actual true love who you keep ignoring in these delusional messages.

It’s a new low to twist Bobby’s words. He didn’t sound bored when he said, “It would have to be Belle, of course. Because I love Belle, I have to say that, she’s my wife.” He sounded pretty upbeat, it was cute as hell. Of course, an actor like him wouldn’t play a princess-y character because they’re not as complex as Rumplestiltskin or the Evil Queen. But he commended Ginny and Emilie for playing those roles. Bobby also went on to bring up Emilie on ON HIS OWN when asked about playing highly emotional scenes, he said they’ve got a fantastic relationship and that she makes it so easy to work together. Emilie can go to the “dark place” with him that he has to get to to do Rumplestiltskin. He did not bring up Lana that way. He just brought up the EQ to say he would want to play her if he had to change roles - however, every other person said Rumplestiltskin. Rumple and the EQ are the two most interesting characters on the show, I am not going to deny you that, but Bobby said NOTHING about GQ, and nothing to insult Belle.

Every damn thing Rumplestiltskin does is for Belle, and as of 5B, for Gideon as well. I don’t know how you can ignore this. Emilie, Bobby, Adam, and Eddy will all tell you this.

It must be terrible to have the Wish Realm Queen happily with Robin and regular Regina and Rumple have no real interest in each other. But I don’t feel bad for you, because you’re delusional and clearly watching this show with distorted shipper goggles. I was just so honored to be the person you targeted after going after @thatravenclawbitch. I’m going to block you now, but I hope you had fun. Please don’t start messaging anyone else. It won’t hurt you to log off the internet sometimes and keep your thoughts to yourself, or to other GQers. I hope you enjoy the finale when Rumbelle get a happily ever after together. :)
