i remember when i got one

I watched the sneak peek and at first it got me thinking that Regina would never let Henry go like that. She even expresses her disbelief that Emma agreed to this, but then I remembered how Regina was treated by Cora when she was the same age. Forced into a marriage she didn’t want. Forced to take on a role she never asked for. Forced to be someone who she never wanted to be.

That reminds me that Regina broke the cycle of bad choices that started (as far as I remember) with Cora and it was almost perpetuated when she became reactive when Emma appeared in their lives.

However, that staircase scene in 2.02 is proof enough to me that Regina would never cling too hard again because she knows more than anyone how this ends up pushing people away. Of course the mother does not want to let her little prince leave, but she remembers what imposing her wishes upon him did to both of them (and to her when she was young) and how long it took for Henry to come back home on his own.

So it doesn’t sound strange to me that she lets him go find his own story. Her heart is probably small and it will be for as long as he’s gone, but she knows you can’t keep your babies forever under your wings.

I can’t remember if I’ve ever showed you this or not. One day I got the notification that you were streaming. I opened the email and this was my greeting. When I joined the stream, the image was gone, so I took a shot of the email instead :V Very very late, but I just found it on my laptop again and figured you’d like it

Me: Im so tired and losing my shit right now
This is the perfect image for you to get emailed

i remember reading a long time ago on flynns page in the disney wikia that he was 27, now i just checked it again and it says 24 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

You can’t trust the Disney Wiki to be completely accurate. It’s run by fans and is an editable wiki. Before Arianna and Frederic had names, they had their names as Primrose and Thomas. I was never sure where they got that information, and when I asked them, no one ever answered me. Any person who wants to can edit the page. And seeing as how you’ve seen three different ages for Eugene on the Disney Wiki, that should tell you that there is no set, cannon age for him.

HI HOW ARE YOU? how was your day? Where did you see God today?

HI I’M DOING JUST FINE. My day was long, but good. Today at work I had a Christian radio station playing really quietly in the background. A lady came in and paused after she got her things. She listened for a while to one of the songs (it’s been a long day, I can’t remember the song) and she smiled a bit. When she got into her car, I saw her messing with the radio knob. I’m thinking she was looking for the station.

Keito in the Precious Girl Making of

To all who have seen the making of for the Precious Girl music video, did anyone notice Keito and how he was? This was my 1st time watching one of their making of, and Keito seemed so shy. Like, when the camera person was going to him, he like turned and shied away. I know he’s a shy person, but is he always like this? I know Yamada and Dai-chan were playing around, hanging around each other, and I know how much Keito loves Yamada and they weren’t really around each other much. Also, when all members were sitting down, and Yabu was singing that song, which sounded like the New Year song (don’t remember the name of it), Keito like got up, and just walked away. It was so strange seeing all of them, and no Keito, wondering why he got up. The only part of him I remember, is when he said something to Yaotome in English. I don’t know, maybe I’m looking at this wrong. Maybe this is just how he is, or maybe he was just out of it. Just was wondering what everyone else thought, seeing as I just watched it, and it got me wondering and worried. I love Keito very much! Okay, that is all. Just felt like typing that out. Thanks for reading!

AFTFE Ch. 198

Remember when chapters were about 2500 words long? I do! Because that’s about the length of today’s one! I didn’t accidentally write a bazillion words again!

Anyway, yeah. Chapter 198 of A First Time For Everything is ready and up for your enjoyment. I have nicknamed it the runaway chapter since it took on a life of it’s own.

Go give it a read and tell me what you think! I’ve got something to do for work, then I’m going to chill out and watch YouTube in bed.

Bye!

Today started weird, had an existential conversation with an old friend this morning at like 7:30. I know some people struggle with mortality when they hit Big Round Numbers - there’s a group of us that are all hitting 40 this year and I think he’s overthinking a lot of things (we’re very similar people lol)

I’m at a point in my life where things are going pretty well, but sometimes I need to remember that fact - I think we all do sometimes. Appreciate what you got instead of what you don’t. And you can’t live in the past, but you can make today a good one

I just love and respect Jin so much and learning about his father made my respect for him grow ever more. Usually children from those families end up running their businesses but Jin had his own dreams and passions and he went to college so that he could make a name for himself. When he was scouted by bighit without having any singing or dancing skills he auditioned and got in, and proceeded to train and practice tirelessly while still working on attaining his degree. Despite coming from a well off family he lived in that little dorm and used his pocket money to buy groceries so he could cook for his members. He always remained humble. I always remember that moment during their concert when Jin’s family was in the audience and he was in tears, talking about how his mom had to hear other moms talking about how proud they were of their sons and how he wanted his mom to be proud of him and show him off as well. And he finally got that and he made something of himself, on his own will, and his mom could brag about him too. I am just so proud of him. He gave up that comfortable life to make something of himself and he’s now in one of the biggest groups in kpop. I just love and respect him so much.

SDCC 2017 Rebecca Sugar interview

Rewind and Pause interviewed Rebecca Sugar in this fifteen-minute interview. Here’s a sorta-transcript–not word for word, but basically what the questions are and how she answered, paraphrased.

Question: A lot of the show’s symbolism is inspired by Utena. Can you discuss that show’s influence?

Rebecca: When I was a teen, that show was an epiphany for me! It plays with the semiotics of gender and I was a bisexual teen relating to it in a way I’d never related to anything before. The show is beautiful and I love that she decides she wants to BE a prince after being saved by a prince. And it’s also funny. It’s so extreme that it’s funny, and that was a huge influence on me as well, that something could be so dramatic and so beautiful but also wacky. It’s so extreme that it’s powerful at the same time as being funny. I got to see the origins and see Guys and Dolls at the Takarazuka Theater when I visited Japan. Osamu Tezuka grew up in that town! You know, Princess Knight, which has everything to do with Utena. I got to see some of the roots there and it was a big influence. Amazing.

Question: Another influence, especially lately, you can draw comparisons between Steven’s miracles and Christ figures. Are you exploring this, and potentially modernizing that allegory, with different kinds of love?

Rebecca: We’re inspired by every voice that has ever spoken about peace. I think–I’ve been reading about Hillel the Elder and how he said “If I’m not for myself, then who will be for me?” The gentleness with which he approached everything is really inspiring to me. I think that I’m very influenced by my Jewish upbringing. I’m half Jewish and was raised Jewish. I’ve felt the feeling of belonging but not belonging. I’ve been moved by this incredible history and this wonderful community that I wanted to understand and be a part of. That’s all been a big influence on the show as well. It was all about growing up with my brother, and that was a big part of my life. There’s a lot of spiritualism in the show.

Question: I wanna ask you about the color symbolism? And I’d be remiss if I didn’t say thank you for showing our community on TV. About Steven: His Gem is pink, his shield is pink, his sword is pink, his shoes are pink! It subverts the tropes of a traditional male hero. Was that intentional?

Rebecca: Oh, it’s COMPLETELY intentional. Yeah, I think one of the things I wanted to do as I went into the show was address how intensely gendered shows for children are and dissolve that. That was my first goal. And I think it came in large part because as a little kid I always gravitated toward boys’ shows, and I felt extremely guilty about that. And I don’t think my child self should have had to feel bad, but I understood “this is not really for me.” So as we went into this, I wanted NO ONE to have to feel that. I wanted everyone who wanted to, to feel it was for them. Especially since it’s gender nonconforming as a show.

Question: Silly question: Peridot and Lapis are roommates. What do you think their biggest pet peeves are of each other? If they have any, I mean.

Rebecca: Gosh. I think Lapis is sort of both annoyed and comforted by Peridot’s infinite energy. I often thought of them like the sort of old cartoon idea of a small dog and a big sort of like doesn’t-really-care dog. With a small very very excited dog. I felt that that was a dynamic for them. So I think that that, like those characters, it’s annoying to Lapis but she doesn’t actually dislike it.

Question: Congrats on the Emmy nomination!

Rebecca: THANK YOU!

Question: I hope we get to see “It’s Over, Isn’t It?” and “Both of You” during the Emmys. How do you feel?

Rebecca: I’m so excited, and I’m so glad it’s that one. It was such a fun dream to make a musical episode. I always loved those, they’re always my favorite. I couldn’t wait to do ours. Everyone was firing on all cylinders for that episode. I got to do music with Jeff Liu and Ben Levin, and Aivi and Surasshu’s compositions for the finals were stunning, the backgrounds are incredible, the art is so beautiful, it’s Jeff Liu and Joe Johnston’s last board together, it was one of the last episodes I got to work on with Ian before he left to do his show, so it also has a special place in my heart, I remember seeing it come back and being in the edit bay watching it and my eyes were welling up because “this is it, this is everything I ever wanted.”

Question: Not to mention Deedee crushing it.

Rebecca: She’s amazing! And that was when she was doing Tommy! So we got her on a day she’d been doing shows all day, and she came and knocked that out.

Question: First take?

Rebecca: We did several, but all of those takes were amazing. I love writing songs for Deedee. And that one, it has some notes in it that I cannot hit. But I know Deedee can do it.

Question: Now when you write songs, you hear a lot of the demos you write on ukulele a lot, but you play other instruments. Do you find that you write differently depending on what instrument you’re writing for?

Rebecca: Yes! Oh, completely. I have my go-to ukulele chords. But I also like to write songs on the omnichord, which is like a synthetic harpsichord from the 80s. And it has a row of buttons, you hit a button and you get that chord. I can use it for experimentation for chords I might not have thought of. I got one off eBay, the OM-84, and it was a little buggy, it wouldn’t play right, would go out of tune, and I took it to get it looked at, and these incredibly corroded batteries fell out of it! With this cloud of red dust! So I can’t put batteries in it anymore. But I can plug it in and it still works.

Question: So for “Love Like You,” is it connected to any of the characters or any point of view, or was it more a one-off?

Rebecca: “Love Like You” is so unusual. It started as a point-of-view song for all Gems, and the thesis of the whole show, sort of toward Steven, and my own brother Steven, but because it was the credits, I wrote the song over three years in little pieces. I thought at the start that this is about an alien that’s looking at a human, who loves them, and the secret meaning of this is that they don’t have the capacity to feel this way. By the middle of it I was deep into the show and going through a real crisis of confidence, where I was like “why are people looking to me? It’s not right!” and these people were coming out of the woodwork to thank me for the show, people who had been able to speak to their families in these wonderful new ways, people who had become comfortable with themselves in these incredible ways that I had not been able to do! Where I was like “I’m so inspired by everyone! Why are they thanking me?” So the middle of the song I was sort of in that place. And about a year later, I realized the beginning was not what I had thought it was about at all. It’s not a secret meaning about an alien who doesn’t understand humans. It’s about the fact that I had always loved my brother and had these people who would love me unconditionally in my life, and because of my insecurity I had not been able to be there for them 100%, and I realized this was maybe one of the most human things I’d ever written, and I had written it by accident. So I got to conclude it. It was seriously written over 3 years.

Question: Recently we talked about how the show has been dramatic and full of conflict. It’s great but do you ever have concerns about taking the show–it’s a very positive show, so does the conflict have the potential to go too far, or do you like making it more challenging?

Rebecca: I’m excited to be more ambitious with the story, and the danger they’re experiencing also feels like a danger for us who are writing the show. Writing stories that are more ambitious and challenging. It feels necessary, because it’s about how love conquers all, but you can’t write that story without showing what comes up against that. I’m excited to explore the–you’re right, it’s scary to explore where hate comes from in a show about love. I want to–it’s a challenge to stay positive while exploring that. But that’s a challenge I experience in LIFE. And that’s a challenge we’re all experiencing right now. So it also feels like the time to explore that in myself and in the show.

i mentioned the recent confusion about my intimidating guns and the clever solution that i solved it with to steve, and he helpfully illustrated my success. 

i knit that sweater myself you guys, im very proud. 

One time when i was 13 and in a tumblr homestuck rp group called thetruechronicles our whole group was like “let’s have the characters go on a camping trip” so everyone was posting about the fake camping trip and my mom stole my phone, got on my blog, thought i was really planning a camping trip with strangers online and got so fuckin mad at me. I remember specifically her pointing to a post by Bro Strider and being like “WHO IS THIS?? WHAT QUALIFIES HIM TO BE YOUR CAMP COUNSELOR??”

i still remember the way your skin felt against mine; soft but still rough. remember how my pale skin was the perfect contrast to your tanned one.
i remember the way you used to lightly trace my face with your fingertips, never applying to much pressure as if you were too scared of hurting me.
i remember how soft your hair felt and how it  annoyed you when i constantly ran my fingers through it, even if you had just styled it.
i remember your voice, still. it was deep and smooth, always calming me when i was feeling anxious or sad. it is, to this day, my favourite sound.
i remember the colour of your eyes and how it still resembles my favourite chocolate. remember, how i got lost in them the first time i ever spoke to you, and how it changed my outlook on brown eyes that i always found boring and not the least special.

i wonder for how much longer i will remember all these little things.
i wonder when skin will become just skin again,
when your touch will become just one of many i’ve felt in my life.
wonder, when the softness of your hair will be long forgotten,
when your voice will turn into just another sound,
and your brown eyes will resemble just another pair of boring, brown eyes.
i wonder if i’ll ever forget and if i do, just know that it was not on purpose. if i could keep remembering them accurately for the rest of my life, then i would.

—  e.s. // all the little things about you that i wish i could remember forever.

Glitch In The Matrix

Hey so I’ve been reading @sixpenceee Glitch In The Matrix stories and the more I thought about it? The more moments I remembered where a strange “glitch” happened. There’s one that stands out to me though:

I was about 11 or 12 and my family was currently on a plane to LA. It was 11:00am. We arrived at the airport and got in a taxi to our hotel. We checked in at 2:30 and were about to go up to our room when we saw that the elevator was out of order. Instead, we had to go up the metal stairwell. We were two flights up when I distinctly remember slipping and hitting the right side of my head on the railing. I looked behind me and saw that I had tripped over a spilled cup of a McDonald’s chocolate shake. Then I blinked, and I was back in the airplane, in my seat. I asked my dad what time it was and he said 11:00am.

At first I didn’t think much of it. I am known for having realistic dreams, so I must have fallen asleep. It still bothered me though how vivid it was. Later we arrived at the airport, got a taxi, arrived at the hotel, etc. We were going to our room when I noticed that the elevator was out of order, just like in my “dream.” We started heading up the stairwell and I decided to check when we reached the second flight. There, at the exact same place, was the spilled chocolate shake from McDonald’s. I strategically avoided it and decided to keep the strange ordeal to myself.

10/10 One of the weirdest things that have happened to me. Don’t think I’ve ever told this story before.

I remember vividly the first time I met Emilia, which was in the hotel bar in Belfast, before season one,“ Harington recalls. "I was sort of bowled over by this absolutely stunning, petite girl with this wicked sense of humor. We became very fast friends quite quickly … Emilia is so sweet, so giving, but she has a filthy, filthy mind when she wants to.” (x)
