Voltron actor AU where everything’s the same but Voltron is a live-action TV show and the paladins are actors:
Their names are the same in real life. They go by different names in the show.
Keith and Lance still have a “rivalry.” Red and Blue didn’t originally have it, but when the cast first met and the directors saw how Keith and Lance interacted, they wanted to write it in.
Shiro’s arm is still a prosthetic, although the scar is fake.
sometimes the makeup crew forgets the scar. literally no one notices until it’s the end of filming
“Shiro…” “Huh?” “…they forgot the sca–” “are yOU FUC–”
Shiro, Keith, Lance, Hunk, and Allura all do their own stunts.
Pidge is only 17 and their mom won’t sign the waiver for them to do their own stunts.
No one really knows how their little production company was able to afford hiring Allura, who’s a big time actress and super talented.
they eventually find out that she’s a giant mecha/space nerd and came to /them/ asking for a role and willing to do it for free
No one really knows if Coran has a script or if he was told to just say whatever
Lance calls Keith “Red” so often that Keith thinks Lance has forgotten his name
The paladins, Allura, Coran, and basically all the actors boycott after season 2, demanding retribution for the way they wrote Hunk and Lance’s characters.
Hunk has an engineering degree in real life.
Matt isn’t Pidge’s real life brother, but when they first meet it goes something like: “baby sister!” “big brother!” and they end up inseparable.
Pidge’s mother is known for calling Pidge at work just to talk to her son, Matt
Hunk and Shay’s on-screen chemistry was actually a real thing. Shay was cast at the same time that she was working in the costume/design department, so they’d known each other since the show started.
they’re dating now
Every time Lance’s character hits on Allura’s on-screen Lance spends five minutes defending Blue’s character after filming
“he just craves attention, okay? he just wants love!! he’s smart and beautiful and wants to belonG”
despite this, Lance is basically his character minus that shoddy writing in season 2
Keith and Lance have their own shipping fanbase. It starts out with just their characters, but then Some Mysterious Person starts taking candids between sets and posting them online and klance is born
it’s Pidge. Pidge runs five fan accounts.
the pictures are super incriminating, but no one shows them to Lance or Keith
there’s a betting pool on when they’ll get together
Keith gets super into his roles and ends up genuinely upset after filming the scenes where the princess reacts badly to Red being part Galra.
Allura gives him a 15 minute hug after
Bonding Moment Discourse is actually a thing. There was a prop malfunction on set while they were filming and the directors told them to stay put, so Lance ended up being Cradled for a solid half hour.
later, they find out that they could’ve moved and just chilled for that time, instead of actually holding each other.
“I get it Keith, I get it. You just wanted to hold me. Who doesn’t amiright??”
Okay watching the promo for next weeks ep is actually upsetting. Seeing Magnus trapped in valentines body not even Alec believing that it’s him breaks my heart. The look of defeat and sadness just shown on his face is killing me i’m actually tearing up
Magnus Bane is trapped in Valentine Morgenstern’s body let’s just think about this. He is probably being questioned possibly even tortured considering we saw that happening to Valentine in 2x11. We see in that promo Alec throwing him up against a wall cause he doesn’t believe it’s Magnus can you imagine how Magnus is feeling? The man he loves the man who loves him is aggressively throwing him against a wall and threatening him and Magnus can’t get through to him. When Alec is looking at Magnus here he doesn’t see the man he loves he sees the man he hates
Also think about the context here Valentine is a genocidal shadowhunter a man who has killed hundreds of Magnus’ people who has tried to kill Magnus and those he loves. Valentine is a man who despises everything that Magnus is and they are trapped in eachothers bodies imagine how scared Magnus is not only for himself but for what Valentine could do.
Let’s not forget that in the first gif he has just been sentenced to death but it isn’t Valentine it’s Magnus. Magnus has just been told that he has been sentenced to death that he is going to die and this is how it all ends when he is finally happy when he has fallen in love. Can you imagine the pain he is feeling the sadness and the fear?
And we see Alec
and this is the point where he realises something is wrong this might actually be Magnus cause Valentine would never look like that would never show sadness as openly as that. I feel Magnus at this point has lost all hope and honestly I’m going to cry thinking about this cause he is so broken he has given up. You see Alec’s face change you see him slowly realise that maybe this is Magnus his Magnus. I need Alec to fight for the man he loves and after all this is over I need to see Magnus happy because he deserves it after all of this imagine how traumatising this would be?
If Freeform don’t renew The Bold Type and Stitchers I’m gonna flip my shit. I sat through 7 drawn out seasons of last minute twins, masks upon masks upon masks, and a seemingly endless supply of bland white boys watching Pretty Little Liars. They freaking owe me.
since it’s been almost a year since i watched it for the first time, i am reminding you all that ‘Big Eden’ might be a PERFECT movie. it’s a gay romcom about a painter living in new york who returns to the small country town he grew up in to take care of his sick grandfather, and reunites with his charming and friendly childhood best friend who has also moved back into town, and also his painfully shy former classmate who now runs the local general store. there is NO homophobia, NO gay characters die, and there is a HAPPY ENDING. it’s just a sweet no-pressure feel-good movie that happens to be 100% gay. many people describe it as “every single AU fanfic trope you love come to life in a single movie” and it’s true. plus, you get to see THIS extremely tall cute man fuss around in a tiny kitchen cooking fancy food, and isn’t that what you’ve always wanted in life?
Why do you want to fight Nicholas Sparks? And how would you challenge him (thrown glove, e-vite, etc)?
Thrown glove, definitely. This has to be PERSONAL, even though my problem with him is really everything he represents.
I have talked before about how his brand of dreck has basically killed the romcom, but I don’t think I’ve talked about why I hate his brand of dreck, so gather around, chickadees, for “How do I hate thee, Nicholas Sparks? Let me count the ways.”
1. Tragedy porn. Look, honestly, I liked “A Walk to Remember.” Mostly because of “Only Hope” and Shane West’s face, but I liked it (if I watched it today, even divorced from the whole of Sparks’s canon, I would hate it, but that’s a separate issue). But as time went on and I watched a couple more of his movies and then heard about the others, it’s just … look. I know that we make stories to make people feel a certain way. We want to elicit an emotional response. And that’s a good thing, you know? And I know I rail about darkness and sadness a lot, but I’m not even saying that stories should only try to elicit good emotions. That feels shallow.
But with Nicholas Sparks and other tear-jerker-type stories (see: reasons I never got into Grey’s Anatomy, reasons I’m more likely to read straight-up darkfic than what people call “sads”), the emotional manipulation is incredibly blatant and formulaic and … I don’t know, is “cheap” the word I want? I don’t see the point in a story that says “Here’s a thing you love. Fate is going to take that thing you love from you. The main character is going to lift their chin like Scarlett O’Hara and say ‘tomorrow is another day!’“ I don’t feel like it’s something the creator is sharing with me, I feel like it’s something they’re trying to do to me, and I don’t take kindly to that.
2. White Cis Hets Touching Foreheads.
3. His whole brand is marketed to women, books and movies both, they’re chick flicks, date movies, stuff For the Women, but he sure is a dude. Not that men aren’t allowed to write romances, but it’s just that slimy feeling of “a wise man making money off all those silly weepy romantic women” rather than “a wise man showing that it’s okay for both women and men to cry over a love story where tragic things happen.” Like. Nora Roberts sure doesn’t have this kind of franchise. And I can’t say I enjoy reading Nora Roberts, but one could excise the sex from her books and make movies and market them to women, but somehow nobody got to be a romantic-book-adaptation juggernaut until Sparks. Partly because he’s a man and partly because
4. Happiness Isn’t Art. There seems to be this implication that because things end badly, because they’re sad, because they make you cry, it’s okay that they’re romantic. The sadness makes sure that they’re art. And fuck that, honestly? Tearjerkers are fine, whatever, they can (and should, I don’t want to stop people writing for the genres that appeal to them) exist in the world even if I don’t want to consume them, but nobody in this world gets to tell me that the unhappiness elevates them higher than the romcom. That it’s better than Nora Roberts not because he’s a man but because the sadness makes it somehow more worthy.
6. Sometimes you just read a book or watch a movie and know that the person behind the story is ideologically opposed to you in pretty much every possible way.
Just to sum up, I guess … I’m a person who loves reading and writing love stories. I always have been, since I was a little kid. If there’s tragedy and difficulty along the way, sure, I’m willing to go along with that, but when there’s someone who consistently says “no, this is only worthy if I take happiness away from you, because happiness isn’t art, because romance is only worth of attention if tragedy interrupts it,” then I get ready for a fight. And since he’s very much the trend leader there, I am pretty much ready to meet him in the pit at all times.
Can we all just take a moment and realize what life would of actually been like if Connor didn't kill himself? I mean Connor was the only one to sign Evans cast and he even said "let's pretend we both have friends" he knows that Evan isn't a very social person and can't make a lot of friends either so Connor would most likely go back to Evan from time to time. Evan would feel a little awkward at first but would probably start to confide in Connor, thinking of him as a support system and the only one there for him and Connor would think the same about Evan. After time I bet they would become best friends and probably be bullied by everyone. They would go through times where they feel like they should just go away and not live anymore but they would never do it without telling the other first because they know that the other is going through the same thing and that they will know how to help. Soon they would start dating. They would secretly think of themselves as the perfect pair while everyone just looked at them and say "those freaks are meant for each other!" But they know why they are the perfect pair. It's because they can trust one another and can be there for one another and they know that if one of them decides that they want to leave and forget all the pain in their lives the other one would never be the same. They will both stay strong for each other. For forever.
Russia refuses to get back together with America because he saw how his transformation to the Soviet Union affected him. He saw how the once sweet, naive, innocent child of sunshine broke right before his eyes when Russia told him to stay away. He witnessed his beloved turn into a scared, paranoid, and near insane force of nature during the Cold War. He notices even today how America continues to hide behind a fake smile, because his real one can no longer be trusted with anyone.
Russia refuses to tell America he still loves him, because he knows the nation won’t believe him, that America is plagued with the belief that no one has ever/will ever love him and that everyone will eventually betray him. Russia wants so desperately to hug him and kiss him and tell him that yes, you were loved and you are loved, but America is too far gone. He’s not capable of trusting people anymore. And Russia believes he is the one to blame.
the woman who inspires me to be a better version of myself, the woman who has refueled me to write again, the woman who has taught me that it is okay to be myself
as cliché as that sounds, i stand by it. lili is a person who stands up for what is right and has demonstrated it a couple of times, she uses her voice to speak out about her mental struggles that she has had/has. she knows what’s right and what’s wrong, what to do and what not to do. she’s humble and thankful for the job that she has, the opportunities that she was given.
lili is the brightest star that was placed in the sky, she’s a memory that you remember for as long as you live. the calm waves in the ocean, a ray of sunshine pushing you to do your very best. that person in your life that makes everything better. she is the song that you love listening to, the calm in the storm, the person who comforts you on your worst days
you know, i am so very proud of her. the efforts she puts in to ace that scene that she’s given. she’s very passionate about what she’s doing and she makes full use of it.
she went from a small acting job, to getting the role of the iconic betty cooper, to countless of photoshoots by well known companies, to getting a tca award, to attending nyfw.
im tearing up as i type this but all is good. im just so happy for lili, she’s getting the recognition that she deserves. her hard work is paying off slowly.
i hope her days on and off set are filled with laughter, joy and smiles. may she receive endless love, care and support from the people that surrounds her and that she eats all the taco bell her heart desires. may her bad days be filled with all the comfort that she needs.
i love you so much lils and i am so proud of you. happy 21st, it’s looking good on you bub.
