I know this sounds excessive and redundant unless it serves the story but PLEASE, if there’s a chance, put a A FLASHBACK OF YOUNG POIROT IN EITHER A POLICE OR ARMY UNIFORM in the Murder on the Orient Express movie. ♥ Kenneth Branagh would make it look extra dashing!

Also a mention of his “wild youth” and career in the Belgian police force, and maybe a show of his fighting skills we never ever get to see in other incarnations, even though the character’s an ex policeman, ex Secret Service and war veteran! Ken already pointed out his Poirot will be more agile than previous versions. From what I could gather via interviews, I think there will be a scene of him at least defending himself against someone.

In the novel Poirot’s at a hotel before he goes on the Orient Express, he books “a room with a bath” which he never gets to enjoy, but the movie is its own thing, Ken’s own interpretation, so why not give us sides of Poirot we’ve been deprived of so far? The hotel room scene would be the perfect opportunity to catch a glimpse of Poirot’s war wound. Bath = skin = wound. A little promo shot of him (via cluesareeverywhere.com) on the train in his pajamas or shirt sleeves, I think, is a scene that could serve the same purpose; Poirot sitting down in his compartment and grimacing in pain, etc. Even just alluding to the wound in some way would make the audience go: “Oh, he seemed harmless enough but there’s more to this guy than meets the eye! What happened to him?”

Poirot fighting in WW1 is not an aspect Christie went into detail with but it is tied to the Orient Express. Poirot was an important part of the Resistance after Germany invaded neutral Belgium, which is why the Germans sent an assassin after him to lure him out to the front line and finish him off. He got shot but a French General smuggled him across the border to France and then sent him on the Orient Express to England in 1916, where Poirot’s career as a private detective began. A flashback to a younger Poirot in the war and/or on the Orient Express wouldn’t be out of place!

And wouldn’t the war have changed Poirot as a person, gave him nightmares, PTSD? Will we see that in the film? Poirot hearing the murder victim’s scream and getting flashbacks of the battlefield? Or thinking he’s only having a dream about the war and it takes him a few moments to realize the scream is real? Ken would be terrific in the scene.

Canon Poirot walks with a slight limp as a result of the war injury. It’s the only character tidbit they didn’t use in the ITV version with David Suchet. Yet a limp shouldn’t mean Poirot can’t spring into action when the situation calls for it, it’s actually another thing the passangers on the Orient Express (and the audience) would underestimate him for, only to stare speechless when he does something unexpected! Poirot’s a man of contradictions and loves surprising people, I think Ken’s version has tricks up his sleeve that’ll be new to live action Poirot yet still faithful to the stories.

If he puts someone in a headlock to drive the point home he’s not to be trifled with or to be pushed around, it’ll be just fiiine by me! One moment will be enough. Drastic measures, his old training kicking in, showing everyone they know nothing about him, this man was a key RESISTANCE FIGHTER, yes, GOOD, thank you! :D

anonymous asked:

do you think in a happier universe, maybe one where they aren't so traumatized, jyn might be touchier? i like the idea that when she's drunk and she's a little less inhibited, she becomes loving and isn't so reserved

I think that’s definitely possible! She touches Cassian a fair amount during the movie: hand on his arm in Jedha, fingertips lingering on his knee by the beach, and let’s not forget that absurd we clearly both need to put this guy’s hand on the sensor pad this is obviously a two-person job situation.

She doesn’t strike me as someone who would ever be super openly affectionate, and I think she’d probably shy away from PDA. But I like to think she would quietly enjoy how tactile Cassian is, the way his hand is always at her lower back, or his shoulder brushing hers, even when he doesn’t seem to realize he’s doing it. I think they would have grown into a pattern where they’re touching almost all the time, but without ever advertising it: if you look closely, you might see his hand on her knee, or her palm on his side, or maybe even her cheek resting on his shoulder.

(This might also come from my being fond of the idea that they’re more subtle in public and then like to vigorously make out in supply closets. So.)

Like, I agree that Scanlan can be a selfish character in some areas. I can understand why people don’t like/are wary of him even if I don’t agree with their view/interpretation of the character all the time (for example: I’m more lenient on nearly all Modify Memory uses, Vex being the one I’m most against and Percy’s being a mixed bag). But I just really can’t see the idea that Scanlan would abandon them in battle, or wouldn’t try to save Vox Machina.

That’s the only problem I have with what Marisha said, because Scanlan hasn’t done anything to make me think he’s that selfish or awful. Even looking at the withholding of an 8th level spell and not using the flute, it just doesn’t click for me. Make bad decisions? Sure, I can understand questioning Sam/Scanlan’s logic in battle after that. That makes perfect sense. I can understand that wariness of “we don’t know what he’ll do in battle” and how that’s a big issue for a group that’s always getting in fights. And like Travis said, we don’t fully know why he never used the 8th level spell, and as for the flute you can probably argue he didn’t want to throw J’mon immediately into the fray so they could have him later. Maybe it just didn’t work out well. Either way I don’t know (and I don’t know if he talked about it on Talks).

But then to go further and say he’d ditch them doesn’t…feel right. At least, in regards to a battle scenario. That’s the only part I’m against, because there’s no real proof that Scanlan would leave them suddenly in battle. Looking back at those fights, Scanlan died twice fighting Raishan with Vox Machina, so using the first fight against said dragon as an example that he’d probably leave them doesn’t sit well with me. Would he back off and try to get his health back up? Sure. Put distance between him and the enemy? Yeah. But to just leave? The only way I could see that is under very dire circumstances, like if half the team was unconscious or dead and there’s nothing he can do about it. Or pulling a Keyleth and trusting/hoping the team can get themselves out of  danger (in a scenario where it is a possibility, I mean). Which I’m not even sure I’d be mad about depending on what happens afterwards and the fact Scanlan has outside family he actively wants to return to (which creates a grey area).

Honestly, I probably wouldn’t be annoyed with it if it was framed in a questioning manner, like a “we’re just not sure after everything that’s happened.” But as I recall, Marisha just sounded so sure and framed it in a general kind of manner (like even before Thordak/Raishan this is what she thought Scanlan would do) that it bugged me.

I was thinking, isn't it strange that Shakespeare's son was called Hamnet? Is it possible that he wrote Hamlet after his son's death, and that's why the father/son relationship is so important in the play?

It’s curious, but maybe not strange. 

Shakespeare’s twins were named after his and Anne’s friends and neighbours, Hamnet and Judith Sadler (they called their son William in return – isn’t that sweet?). Hamnet – and the related forms such as Hamlin, Hamelot and Hammond – was quite a common name back then (both as name and surname).

Shakespeare’s son Hamnet died in 1596 (aged 11). Hamlet was probably written in 1602 (earliest possible date it was written is 1599), so it was definitely written after Hamnet’s death. 

From some of the contemporary accounts we have, there appears to have been a Hamlet before Shakespeare’s one (most likely written by Kyd), that also had a protagonist called ‘Hamlet’, which is, in turn, an anglicised form of the earlier sources where the character is named Amleth. So Shakespeare wasn’t responsible for choosing the name Hamlet for his protagonist; that is, the main character isn’t named after his son. It’s also important to remember that in the essential details most of the father-son theme is present in the play’s sources and weren’t added in by Shakespeare.

Of course, it is possible that when Shakespeare came across his sources for Hamlet that he was drawn to it by the nominal similarity between his son Hamnet and Amleth/Hamlet and because of the father-son theme. Some scholars have argued that, since Shakespeare’s father died in 1601, the play might be an exploration of father-son relationships prompted by the death of his own father. Perhaps both deaths influenced the writing of the play. 

In the end, this kind of thing is pure speculation. No doubt biographical circumstances do contribute to an author’s work, but no play can ever be boiled down to the details of an author’s life. Father-son relationships are extremely important in Hamlet, and Shakespeare’s father and son died within a few years of the play being written. It doesn’t necessarily follow that father-son relationships are important in the play because Shakespeare’s father and son died within a few years of the plays being written, although it may have influenced the author’s thoughts in some wise.

Do u ever regret being married? Sometimes I think about how cool it might be but then I feel like I'd just miss my alone time and going out. And how do u even know you'll like the same person years from now? Idk I'm just feeling some things I guess.

Hi there anon,
I don’t ever regret being married. That’s not to say I don’t wonder here and there what my life might be like now if I hadn’t met and married my wife. It’s a pretty common thing to wonder I think.

As an introvert (who is married to an extrovert), I need my alone time very much and I still get it. I just have someone here to communicate with about needing it as opposed to just taking it like I did when I was single.

As for “going out”, if you mean in like a going to clubs or bars sense, I didn’t do too much of that when I was single (minus the karaoke bar I frequented with my cousin but I wasn’t trying to meet anyone there if you feel me).

In terms of your last statement, I mean you don’t really know. I can say after a relationship that’s about to round on 5 years together (3 of them married) that’s endured a few deaths, multiple moves, career changes and a stroke, I’ve seen evidence that we can grow together and that’s all I need. I think it can be hard when you’re fed the narrative that marriage must look a certain way but none of it is ever truly how it has to be for you. If marriage is something you desire, you and whoever you end up with (whether it be one or multiple peeps) get to set the rules and/or terms. Thats how it works. It doesn’t mean you trade in everything you are/want the day you get hitched. In fact, in healthy relationships, it often gives you a space and freedom to do more and be more because there is someone (or a few someones) cheering you on.

this is the worst shitpost i ever made

so someone is in love with me and I like him too, the problem is he asks me every weekend if I'd like to hang out with him and his best friend and so but I know that I'll live for only 4 months in my city anymore and I'll move away then to study music. That's why I don't really wanna hang out with him because I think he would create hopes for sth. that isn't possible if I try to stop this the whole time.. I don't wanna tell him for the third time that I don't have time, what should I do?

if you like him, just hang out. sometimes relationships are more about just enjoying yourself and getting to know another person a little better, rather than long term commitment

Yeah. Because of his previous decision to have reiju be the only one with empathy and his previous decision to have her be the one to fe bad enough to let him go and all his other previous decisions that resulted in the construct of this scene where reiju is the only one he could think of rhemnjenpoidj

I wouldn’t be putting up as much fuss if it weren’t for the previous reiju and pudding scene or reiju talking about how she wants to go down with germa or even just coming from the shit that was dressrosa.

“Hm.”

“Those clothes are too raggedy, I think, to give me a proper opinion of what Abel looks like. But I think he might… have a pleasant smile, under that messy hair.”

“I believe if he did not dress like a common HOMRA criminal, he’d be handsome indeed, and if I must quantify it, I’d give him an 8, perhaps.”

Will Leonardo kill the Shredder?

This is a question that has been on my mind a lot. And it’s one that I don’t have an answer to and it’s one that I don’t think anyone in the fandom really has an answer to. 

This is all on the writers. 

However. I firmly believe that there is a very distinct possibility that he will end up killing him. And I’m going to explain why I think so. 

One: The Shredder’s death at Leo’s hands will NOT be the first death in the series. That fact alone opens up the possibility of the character dying.

Confirmed(?) Dead Characters:

  • Tang Shen (before the start of season 1, death by the Shredder)
  • The Rat King (season 2, Of Rats and Men: death by Splinter) HEAVILY implied that he fell to his death. Hasn’t been seen since. Can safely assume that he is gone.
  • Timothy/The Pulverizer (season 2, Mutagen Man Unleashed: death by Donatello) Seeing as how Timothy is now a bunch of human organs frozen in jar… we can probably assume that he most likely dead. If he’s not… then I don’t know how that works. His brain is no longer beating and Donnie appears to have given up on him.
  • Shredder’s Minions: (season 3, Return to New York: death by Splinter) Three or four of them, thrown down into a giant fan where we heard them being torn apart - they haven’t been seen since. Unless we do see them again, we can safely assume that they are gone for good.

Two: While it is a kids show, the writers are not terribly shy about violence. All of the characters have been hurt pretty dang bad at some point. I personally, have never watched a cartoon that has taken a character almost half a season to recover from a beating that left him in a coma for three months. I love it - but it’s been a surprise, to say the least.

And look at what Shredder did to Splinter - he almost killed him. He threw him into a drain pipe where he almost drowned and then lost his mind and went crazy. The boys thought their dad was dead for months. 

If this cartoon can regularly beat the crap out of it’s main characters and let them believe that someone is dead… it’s not too much of a stretch for one to actually die, is it?

I don’t think so.

Three: Leonardo is having massive character growth and with the direction that he is going, I don’t see how he can’t end up not killing him! 

Leonardo has become a very skilled leader and on his own, he is a very deadly ninja. Everything that he does is with the intention of protecting his family and his family will never be safe so long as the Shredder is alive. The man has proven that there is nothing that will stop him from annihilating them. He wants them dead and is going out of his way to get rid of them.

He is not an enemy that will ever stop hunting them. So the only way to stop him is to kill him. 

The boys have never discussed their end plan, we don’t officially know what Raphael, Donnie, and Michelangelo individually think of the situation - the plan has always just been to stop him. 

But Leo is the leader and he has no doubt been thinking about this for a very long time… and his goal to kill him…. isn’t one that I think he would share with his brothers unless someone actively tried to figure out what he was going to do. The fight with Shredder is personal to him and Leo absolutely hates the guy. You can see it in his face when they fight. 

Yes. This is a kid’s show. 

But just look at what has happened so far - look at what the show/writers have given us to go off of - there have been three episodes in season 3 alone where Leonardo has openly declared his intentions to ultimately end the Shredder.

Vision Quest: “I beat you on the Spirit Plane and one day… I’ll beat you in the real world!”

Serpent Hunt: “Let her go! And I’ll LET all of you walk away alive!”

Casey Jones VS. The Underworld: “This is it, Shredder! You are NOT going to walk away from this!”

These are not idle threats - gone is the cute little leader in blue from season one quoting Space Heroes at his enemies in an attempt to sound cool - these threats are real. He means them and I have to believe that the writers want him to mean them. 

One thing that I personally find fascinating about animated shows and why I enjoy them so much, is that everything in them is deliberate. The writers and animators purposely put every single detail into every frame of every episode. 

Almost every time the Shredder has appeared this season, Leonardo has been the one going out of his way to fight him and he is the only one of his brothers that has lasted any significant amount of time against him - 

Leonardo is upping his game - he’s continually getting better and better - and he fights the Shredder with the intention of killing him. ^^^

The writers have been and are building up to something between these two. You cannot deny that.

Leonardo’s very words and actions are saying that he plans to kill him. In the original story/comics, Leo kills him. 

I think it is a real possibility that this could be how it ends. I really do. Yeah… it’s a show that is directed at kids so maybe they won’t. 

But just based on what they have given us so far… based on what the character is personally saying and doing… you can’t count it out.
