i think they have a great chemistry

anonymous asked:

My thoughts on the Kitchen Scene? While I agree Lili and Cole are talented actors, I think they bring out something in each other that makes their scenes that much better, which is a result of the actors infusing a little bit of their personal connection in to their work. It's called CHEMISTRY people! Why do people get so insulted by that? When two people have a great chemistry they can feed of each other naturally to help improve their scenes. There is no way that two young adults (1 of 2)

The second part didn’t come through, anon….but I agree—-again, they’re really good actors, but sometimes their actual feelings also leak through and they use that…..it’s what actors DO, BTW…

But I am merely an ancient, ignorant fossil and cannot understand the mystical realm of….

Oh fuck this shit. The application for this job took some THREE MONTHS and I jumped through all their hoops, and now that the question was whether they actually take me they are “uwu unhappy to inform me” that there was ONE other candidate and “she fits better with the team”.

URGH.

What the fuck have I done wrong??

This is seriously eating on me now. Like, everything was perfect enough to get through rounds 1 to probably-10-or-something, but then I “didn’t fit with the team”, even though I thought everything was going great with them??

Like, I keep going to interviews and I’m nice and social and I think I sell myself well and that the chemistry is good, but afterwards everyone without fail seems to make a retching motion behind my back and tells the boss not to hire me? This is how I feel at least… Really, really unlikable. -_-

(23/100) // 4.6.16 // What a great day!! Today, I went to downtown to have some coffee & review chemistry. Slight stressed, but gotta think positive. 😅 Also, talked to a friend for about an hour and a half tonight and it was so awesome!

Katie McGrath interview on Lena

Interviewer: so, Katie, do you think there’s a possibility-

Katie: Yes definitely. Kara and Lena have such a great dynamic and electric chemistry. Melissa is so easy to work with. I definitely ship Supercorp and I can see the two of them getting together.

Interviewer: I-

Katie: I mean, Lena filled Kara’s entire office with flowers, do friends do that?? Do friends ‘look into each other’s eyes’ or flirt during every single interaction or call them their hero?? do they do that?? 

Interviewer: -was going to say for you to become a series regular for season 3..

I think one of Mofftiss big problems is that they think the success of Sherlock is due to them. When actually the success of Sherlock is mostly due to Ben and Martin as Sherlock and John and their fantastic chemistry and great acting.

You separate John and Sherlock or have a chaperone there the whole time, as was done in S4,  and their pretty lackluster writing really starts to shine through.

anonymous asked:

Hi, what exactly is Stargate (like, what is the plot, how many seasons, that kind of thing)? I've seen it mentioned in combination with Leverage in some of your posts, and I've sort of picked up some of the character names from being on the internet, but I'm still not sure what it actually is. Thanks!!

What a delightful question that I’m going to have a ridiculous amount of fun answering, probably using too many gifs.

First, the bare bones facts: Stargate is a franchise that began with the 1994 movie Stargate, which was then developed into the TV show Stargate: SG-1 which began in 1997 and picked up about a year after the movie ended. SG-1 had 10 seasons and 2 made-for-TV movies. There are also 2 spinoffs, Stargate: Atlantis and Stargate: Universe. Atlantis has 5 seasons, and its first season coincides with season 8 of SG-1, with both beginning in 2004, with some fun but not strictly essential crossover between the two. Universe has 2 seasons and began in 2009, after both SG-1 and Atlantis had ended. I mostly blog about SG-1, but I enjoy all three shows and will at least briefly explain Atlantis and Universe in the course of this post, FOR FUNSIES.

The basic premise of the whole thing is that there are these devices (built by aliens, OF COURSE) called Stargates, which create wormholes that allow for basically instantaneous travel between planets all throughout the Milky Way (and other galaxies as well, it turns out, but that’s later).

The movie involves the US Air Force, with the help of the BEST FICTIONAL ARCHAEOLOGIST IN EXISTENCE FIGHT ME, figuring out how to work the Stargate, using it to travel to another planet, and helping the locals overthrow the evil parasitic alien who was posing as the Egyptian god Ra in order to enslave them.

SG-1 starts with Earth humans learning that “Ra” actually belonged to an entire race of evil parasitic aliens who used the personas of various gods to enslave humans throughout the galaxy. At which point, NATURALLY, the plucky Earth humans say “fuck that shit” and also “ooh, a whole galaxy to explore, HOLD MY BEER” and start having adventures and liberating the galaxy.

Atlantis is about Earth humans finally discovering the lost city of Atlantis over in another galaxy, and the adventures and struggles they have setting up a colony there. Also, space vampires.

Universe is about a bunch of Earth humans accidentally stranding themselves aboard an alien-built spaceship that is going they don’t know where in order to find the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. It’s much darker and more sort of psychological than the other two shows. Also more diverse. I like it a lot, but for different reasons than I like SG-1 and Atlantis.

SG-1 owns my heart, because it’s the show that helped me fall in love with sci-fi. Also, it has Dr. Daniel Jackson. It wrestles with what it means to be human and ethics and all kinds of really good shit. It’s not perfect, and the early seasons especially have some pretty major issues with sexism and white savior complexes in certain episodes, but overall I personally find it more than worth it, and the main reason is the characters, who you now get to hear me yell about my love for.

[MAGAZINE INTERVIEW] 170420 WINNER for HIGH CUT May Issue

WINNER’s beginning was different from the start as they were born through a reality program, “WIN: Who Is Next”. In the first week of their debut, they won three #1 crowns on music shows with their title track “Empty” and swept up all the rookie awards that year. The public fixed their eyes on the monster rookie that had skills, visuals, and the star quality and WINNER always put out results that met expectations. But a long hiatus followed which was unprecedented for a rookie group. A sudden piece of news that fans received during the hiatus was not about their comeback but about a member leaving the group. They became 4 members from 5 and they changed the formation of their choreographies and they adjusted the vocalist parts and they had to work hard to fill up the one empty spot. The result of this came in the form of their single album “FATE NUMBER FOR”, which was released on April 4th, 1 year and 2 months after their previous comeback. The moment the album was released, it recorded first place on iTunes Charts in 21 different countries and was featured in Apple Music’s “Best of the Week”. The fact that the public’s response to “REALLY REALLY” and “FOOL”, which are total opposites of each other, are addicting is just a bonus. WINNER is at their peak.

KANG SEUNGYOON

The response for “REALLY REALLY” is very hot. Do you feel how popular it is?

I’ve been told by people but I can’t really feel it myself. Just like it has always been, we just perform onstage and meet our fans and move according to our schedules.

During WINNER’s hiatus, with Nam Taehyun’s leave, the group became 4 from the original 5. Didn’t you feel like your responsibility as the leader was heavier with this comeback?

Of course I felt responsible. But I didn’t think things like, “I need to lead WINNER better so we can go to a higher place.” (laughs) I felt like I needed to do things instead of staying still.

I heard that you weren’t able to properly rest or travel for leisure during the hiatus.

Yes. When I didn’t have plans on making music, I was at home. Home and company. That was it. It was because I didn’t want to just rest. Even when I didn’t have any songs to work on, I went to the company. I felt more comfortable staying at the company, eating with my composer hyungs, and talking to them.

I heard you made “REALLY REALLY” and “FOOL” very quickly.

Composing for both songs came easy to me. For “REALLY REALLY”, I finished composing the melody and writing the lyrics while lying in bed in 4 hours. But I couldn’t figure out the best melody progression for the bridge part so I asked Mino to help me.

As a member who composed the songs, which member do you want to praise the most?

Jinwoo-hyung. I don’t force directions to the rappers. They have always done well with their individual styles and they know how to show off their own colors. But I was really surprised at how much Jinwoo-hyung’s singing improved while recording for this single album. The time it took to record decreased greatly. It took 30 minutes when it usually takes 2 hours.

Jinwoo told me earlier that the songs suited him so well that he was very comfortable with them.

Whenever I make WINNER songs, I compose so that it suits the members. It’s only possible since I’ve known them for almost 10 years now, ever since we were trainees. This means I probably can’t make songs for other singers.

I feel like you received a lot of stress to achieve such good results.

I feel like I don’t get stressed much but my body keeps hurting in places. (laughs) I still get migraines.

How do you relieve stress?

These days I reform clothes with Mino as a hobby. I usually relieve stress by going outside and walking under the sunlight. But I need to wear a face mask and a hoodie so people don’t recognize me. I wear black clothes to not draw attention to myself at night. (laughs)

How do you reform clothes?

I just fold them and stick them together and sew things together and cut things. I’m bad at sewing. When I have things I need to sew, I put them aside and when my mother comes to Seoul, I make her do it… (laughs) She enjoys it though! I’m usually really blunt around her so when I ask her to do things like this for me she thinks we’re playing together.

In the end, all the clothes you’re reforming are made by your mother.

No, that’s not it. I design the clothes and my mother sews the clothes. Designers don’t sew clothes themselves. Their assistants do it. (laughs)

You’re receiving good results after a long hiatus. Is there something you want to challenge yourself in in the future?

I want to hear people say, “This is what WINNER-like music is” even when we make music we want to make and not bother with trends. To make that happen, we need to become more known and further develop our careers. I think it’s possible with time. Personally, once WINNER becomes properly stabilized as a group, I want to release a solo album but I want to include all genres of music into that one album. When people think about the music Kang Seungyoon makes, they assume it’s only folk or rock music. I want to break that preconceived notion and put in dance, hip-hop, R&B, and even trot songs into the album. I’m just sharing my thoughts. (laughs)

SONG MINO

You’ve succeeded in the variety scene. You received your nickname “Song Dumb” through “New Journey to the West” and you’ve become famous enough among the older generation that they ask for your autograph. Was it your wish to appear on a variety show?

Yes, I wanted to. Other than music shows, we weren’t able to have complete promotions and as time passed, the image of the group WINNER solidified into being a group that is hard to approach and classy. (laughs) I don’t mind that kind of image and vibe but I wanted us to promote more and become more known. In that timing, I received the offer from “New Journey to the West” and I had lots of fun filming it but I didn’t expect to be shown like that… (laughs)

You’re honestly worried as a rapper, right?

At first I was worried that my image would cover my music activities. But when I thought about it, what was shown on TV is my true self and it’s separate from the music I make so there is no need to forcefully hide myself. I’ll show myself as I am and I can show my music as it is.

In a separate interview you said that you worked hard to show rapping that overflows with energy without covering the melody. Maybe because of this I feel like your vocalization changed.

My vocalization changed during “Show Me The Money”. It’s actually a change that all singers and rappers go through. It’s how we find the voice we’re most comfortable with. When I first started rapping, I made up a voice and rapped in that voice. When I listen to the songs I made when I was in high school, my voice sounds like I swallowed stones. (laughs) Back then, I thought that was cool. But gradually, I’m finding the voice I’m comfortable with.

When you promote as WINNER, rapping is a component that makes up the vibe of the song. You must want to work on your own music since you don’t rap as much compared to when you promote individually.

Yes. The rapping I do as WINNER is one part of the song so the importance lies in the overall concept. But my rap style is made up of word plays and I pour in a lot of fun elements and enjoy my music so when I get the opportunity to work on my solo music, I’m going to do whatever I want. I want to go hard in my rapping.

Do you perhaps remember the first rap you made?

I don’t remember the lyrics but I remember what happened. The first ever music I made was when I was in my 6th year of elementary school. I went to my friend’s house and wrote my first lyrics and recorded myself on a cassette tape with my friend. I didn’t know anything when I was writing those lyrics. I just scribbled something and said, “Hey, but let’s still record it” and I recorded it on a cassette tape. I wonder where that cassette tape is now.

Out of all the raps you’ve made, which one gave you the hardest time?

The song that I had the hardest time making was “Shoot” for “Infinite Challenge: Great Legacy”. The overall concept was already set in place. The larger theme was history and the smaller theme was General Lee Soonshin. And the project was about becoming aware by looking back into the past and looking at the present. It was difficult to express myself within a fixed boundary. Fortunately, the end result turned out well.

You’ve had the name WINNER for 4 years now. Is there a time when you think you have some spare time now?

I don’t think we’re at that level yet. But the chemistry between us members is really good. We’ve been living together for a long time now so I think we know pretty much everything about each other. I know what my members are thinking just by looking at their faces. The member who is in the best mood today is… Seunghoon-hyung. That hyung has severe mood swings but I think he’s pretty happy today. (laughs)

Is there a specific key point you want listeners to focus on for “REALLY REALLY”?

Um… What a difficult question. (Song Mino mulled over the question for a long time. Lee Seunghoon, who had finished earlier came and suggested, “Didn’t you say you worked hard to change your tone? Tell her about that.”) The change in my tone can just be heard. I don’t need to specifically tell that to people… I just want people to listen to it comfortably. Comfortably. (laughs)

LEE SEUNGHOON

I heard CEO Yang praised you for making the choreography for “FOOL” in 5 hours.

I was able to make it quickly because I thought about the flow of movements. “FOOL” didn’t need complicated dancing. It’s a song that is close to the ballad genre so it wasn’t necessary to dance powerfully and put in a key point dance. The first thing I thought about was how I could make us look cool.

I’m curious about your process in making choreographies.

First, I close my eyes while listening to the song and draw a picture in my head. I imagine an overall picture while thinking about the mood of the performance that people would find cool watching us. After I imagine that, I make a large outline of how the members should move. After that, I make the detailed dance movements. “FOOL” didn’t need lots of movements but the formation had to change because we became 4 members from 5.

You’ve started promoting after a long hiatus. I heard you thought a lot about what kind of fanservice you would do for the fans.

The ground-breaking invention of Naver V App is helping many people other than ourselves, I think. I really want to tell Naver that I love them. (laughs) I’ve always liked making and planning ideas and content. I’ve had interest in making videos from when I was young. So I have fun and I like communicating with our fans through V App.

I feel like you’ve been overflowing with ideas from when you were on “K-Pop Star”. I guess you’re not nicknamed “Deputy Lee of YG Planning Team” for nothing.

I enjoy producing ideas. When I get told they’re fun, I get really excited. Usually, other artists go to the YG office building to work out or go to the recording studio on the 3rd floor and they don’t really go to where the staff members work. But I always go to those staff members’ offices. So when they see me on TV, they say that I look unfamiliar and that it feels strange. They say things like, “Why is our Deputy who’s always scruffy appearing on TV like that”. (laughs)

You have good fashion sense. You’ve collaborated with fashion brands too.

Let me just tell you that good-looking people like Jinwoo-hyung never get interested in fashion. That’s because they look good no matter what they wear. (laughs) I enjoyed going around used-goods markets and looking for clothes with my friends. Since I debuted and am earning money, I can buy expensive clothes now, right? I used to not have money so I couldn’t buy expensive clothes but I suddenly realised that the ultimate end to fashion was to personally create a style of clothes I like. So later on, when I have the opportunity, I want to create my own clothing brand, like Tyler, the Creator who made “Golf Wang”.

You’re a jack-of-all-trades. I was surprised when I saw your poem called “Flower Boat” that you wrote for your fans.

I just imitated something like a poem. I feel like my fans like it so much because what I feel for my fans can be felt from that poem. I’m not good at writing and I’m not talented.

What are you talking about? Your fans say that the lyrics you write are the best parts of the songs. Were you proud when you listened to the completed recordings of the new songs?

Yes, I liked them. Seungyoon is the type to listen to the music he makes a thousand times before the release but I don’t listen to our songs often. I say things like, “Why listen to them already when we’re going to keep listening to them after they’re released?” (laughs) But I was satisfied. I worked hard to make a rap that middle school girls could imitate easily.

How did you do that?

I made sure my enunciation wasn’t hard to imitate and the speed wasn’t too fast. And most importantly, I put in many breaks between the beats where you can rest. I imagined how people would sing and rap along. (laughs)

KIM JINWOO

You’re famous among your fans for being very diligent. What kind of effort did you put in for this single album?

I kept receiving lessons while we recorded. I also learned contemporary dancing and thanks to that I became very confident. I used to sing quietly when we recorded but now I actively try singing this way and that. My singing hasn’t changed but my attitude has.

As the group became 4 members, your singing parts increased too. Were you not burdened?

I just recorded the songs comfortably. When Seungyoon makes a song, he thinks about our tones and the rappers’ tendencies. We record many songs and there are times when there are good results and there are times when there are bad results but when Seungyoon is the one who made the song, I never struggle. I didn’t put in any extra effort. I don’t need to because he makes songs that suit me perfectly.

When were you most excited while recording the songs?

I was just happy the entire time we were recording. I feel like learning how to physically express myself in a given situation through contemporary dancing made me change a lot internally. If I have the time, I want to continue learning contemporary dance.

Fans know that you’re a homebody. Do you still always stay home?

I don’t spend my spare time outdoors. I watch TV at home or I lie in bed and play with my phone. I used to play lots of phone games but I’ve stopped that now. Playing so many phone games made me spend too much money. (laughs) I stopped because I realised that if I kept it up, I would go broke. (laughs)

You must’ve watched a lot of TV during the hiatus.

I’ve watched many dramas recently. I especially enjoyed watching “Defendant”.

Who is your favorite actor?

Kimura Takuya. I love it when people tell me I look like how Kimura Takuya looked like when he was young. (laughs)

Who is your favorite Korean actor?

Jisung-sunbaenim who acted in “Defendant”. Did you watch that drama? You didn’t? You really should. I really love Choi Jinsil-sunbaenim. I didn’t know that I would fall in love with another actor besides her. Jisung-sunbaenim acted his character who would never let go of his deep sadness even in a happy situation and… Wow… Seriously…

You’ve acted in a webdrama before, right? I can feel that you’re greedy for acting.

Yes, I’m always interested in acting. I’ve acted in a couple of webdramas but I think they didn’t really suit me. I want to try acting a deep and heavy character instead of a light character. Of course, I am still very lacking.

But you’re the icon of effort. All the other members picked you as the member who improved the most.

Not just me, all of us worked really hard in making this single album. If you ask me what people should focus on when listening to our song, I want to say “all of it”. There is really no part that didn’t require hard work.

Then when is the best timing to listen to “REALLY REALLY”?

When you’re in a flirting relationship with someone. Or at the beginning of a romantic relationship, when the love is fresh. If I were to compare that feeling to a season, it would be Spring, which is right now.

When do you think Spring will start in your love life? I heard what your ideal type is on the radio. You said that you want to date someone who looks like you, right? A women with big eyes, a slender face, and is 165cm tall. Do these characteristics still hold?

Firstly, I don’t mind what kind of hairstyle she has now. But I would like it if she is shorter than me. Other than that, the general descriptions haven’t changed. But right now I will concentrate on WINNER promotions. (laughs)

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Cast → Eddie Redmayne and Dan Fogler’s friendship

Eddie and I had great chemistry right away. We improvised in character at the first audition and I think that really helped me get the part. I was really comfortable with Eddie. It really matters to have someone his character gets along with. Jacob had to be someone likable enough to get under Newt’s skin and make him start to think there’s more to life than magical creatures. Dan Fogler

( 1 6 . 0 6 . 1 7 ) 🎧 god help the girl

so my almost-all-nighter paid off and i think i’ll be able to improve my organic chemistry grade even if by just a bit! i’m glad i managed to push myself yesterday but i have to gather enough strength to do the same today and let my conscience rest at ease. tomorrow’s my last improvement exam, and realistically it won’t be great, but as long as i do my best it’ll be enough.

june study challenge day 16: what study habits that you have help you now? what additional study habits would you like to establish? my note-taking and study interval system/planning/organizational habits are pretty much on point, but i’d like to work on procrastinating less and working more on practice exams and textbook readings throughout the semester and maybe give group studying another chance. i have to stop ignoring things until the very last minute :’)

A smirk stretches across his lips, “Anything?”

Everything Changes - Peter Parker

Words: 1096

Warnings: None

A/N: Hey so this imagine was a long time coming I guess because if you write Peter imagines then this is one that you write haha.

And can we take a fucking minute to talk about the trailer people?!?!? Like what is life?!? And Tony Fucking Stark, what the frick frack do you think you’re doing taking the suit off that smol bean!?!?! Still #teamironmanforever XD … Enjoy the imagine :)

“Peter Parker!?” Your friend screamed but still managed to keep her voice low. Regardless of the fact you were sure no one did hear her you still put a finger to your lips and told her to shush, looking desperately around to see if #anyone# had heard her.

Peter Parker?!” She repeated in the same tone. You couldn’t tell if she was acting this way in disbelief or shock - or both.

“Yes.” You replied finally. She had been pestering you for weeks for who you had a crush on because she claimed she could tell exactly when you had one. You had told her, and now this was her reaction.

“Peter Pa-” She began to say again but you shut her up.

“Don’t you think you’ve said it enough already?”

Y/F/N just looked at you. She had an evil glint in her eye.

“Don’t you dare.” You said.

“Oh trust me, I am not going to do or say anything.”

“Yeah right.”

“No seriously,” She said and winked, “Your secrets safe with me.”

She closed her locker door and set off down the hallway making you follow her.

You cursed your timing knowing that next period you would have Chemistry, with Y/F/N… and Peter. With Y/F/N sitting on your right and Peter directly in front of you. Great.

Y/F/N had paused next to the door, “Ready?”

“For what?”

She raised her eyebrows with a knowing look.

“I wish I hadn’t told you now.” You groaned and half rolled your eyes.

“It was the best thing you ever did.” She stated and then opened the door and entered the class room.

You followed her to your usual spot. Peter was already sitting there and you tried not to look at him. Y/F/N was though. She was looking at him as if she’d only seen him for the first time. As if she was looking at him in ‘a different light’.

You rolled your eyes but grinned slightly. She had better not say or do anything.

Your teacher came in and handed out the graded tests from last lesson. You were doing well in school and didn’t need to worry too much about your grades. After she had done this she stood at the front of the class.

“As I said last week everyone,” She started,“ your projects towards your final grade start this week so could you get into partners and carry out the preliminary experiment written on the board.”

You had completely forgotten about this! You had had so much homework this week you had totally forgot that this was this week.

You turned to Y/F/N getting ready to work with her. She grinned at you manically before leaning forward to the girl in front and asked if they could work together. You sat completely shocked until you realised what she was doing.

“Y/F/N?” You said. “What are you doing?”

“I’m doing nothing.” She said still smirking, “Just like I promised.”

Y/F/N?!” You hissed again but she had already moved to the other desk.

You sat there not knowing what to do. She was your only friend in this class.

“Um, Y/N?” You heard someone say and you turned to look in front of you to find Peter Parker staring questioningly at you.

“Uh yes?” You said as best as you could.

“I’m guessing you don’t have anyone to work with?”

“Yeah…” You said lamely glancing behind him at Y/F/N.

“Do you want to work together?”

This was not happening. Last time you checked you didn’t live in a teen movie.

“Yeah sure.” You carried off with a light smile. “Do you want me to move round there or you come here?”

“I’ll move.” He said returning the smile. You shifted your stuff over to the other side of the desk so he could put his stuff down.

You saw that Y/F/N was looking back at you with the same mischievous laugh she’d had before. You ignored her and focused on not making yourself look stupid in front of Peter. Doing that was probably going to be harder than this experiment.

You turned back to Peter and gave him a shy smile.

“It doesn’t look too hard.” You said regarding what was written on the board.

“No.” Peter agreed and you two started to get your equipment together and the chemicals you would need. It was a titration neutralisation reaction so it wasn’t hard, just fiddly.  

You two worked in silence for a few minutes and you couldn’t tell if the silence was awkward or not. You just didn’t really have anything to say.

“Could you pass me the acid?” Peter asked. You picked up the bottle and passed it to him.

“Thanks…” He mumbled still concentrating on making sure the acid stayed where it was supposed to.

Suddenly you remembered that this was a full blown project. As in a project that had a practical element and a research one. That was required to do in the pairs so one person couldn’t get the other person’s grade for them.

“Shit…” You said under your breath as you realised that Y/F/N had probably planned this out in the five minutes they had before class.

“Huh?” Peter said assuming you were talking to him.

“No nothing…” You said going red. Great, now he thought you talked to yourself. You gave him a small smile and he smiled back before returning to the experiment.

Why are you like this?! You thought as Peter passed the equipment to you so you could carry on the experiment.

You listed the volume values you had got to Peter and he wrote them down. You were surprised you could do it because your hands were slightly shaking from nervousness.

Soon you were completely done and you packed everything up. You didn’t know what your next move was going to be with this project because it would mean actually working with Peter.

Your teacher, after being satisfied with the state of the classroom, called the class dismissed and you got up to leave and run after Y/F/N.

“Y/N, um wait up.” You heard Peter say behind you and you stopped and turned round.

“Hey do you want to do the research element now? I mean we already have loads of work from other classes so we could just get it over and done with.” Peter asked. “That’s only if you’re free!”

“Yeah I am let’s do it.” You said.

“My place?” Peter asked timidly.

You internally screamed. “Yeah sure.”

Y/F/N who was standing nearby, much to your annoyance, and listening in gave you a thumbs up from behind Peter. You shot her a warning look and she just smirked and waved goodbye.

You couldn’t believe this was happening.

Masterlist

Shoot week, day 6. Reasons why I ship it? Oh boy, where do I even start… I’m not good with words, but I feel like I have to do it, so please bear with me.

- First of all, this is canon, so the ship sails itself. 
- The writers didn’t intend to make them a couple at first, but the chemistry between actresses changed everything.
- Great character development; each woman has a perfectly written storyline of her own.
- Absolutely amazing relationship development. It went from a torture with an iron and a promise to shoot the other to protecting each other with their lives. Started from the bottom, now we’re here.
- A reformed killer for hire, a misanthropic hacker, who thinks that humans are nothing more than a bad code, fell for a grumpy Persian sociopath.
- A beautiful, strong WOC who can either save you or kill you and not feel a thing, fell for a nerdy hacker who wears bunny slippers and fires two guns at once.
- Two people - not just a lesbian and a bisexual - two people, who aren’t here for all your lovey-dovey stuff, found comfort in each other. So different and yet so similar, they became each other’s safe place in the middle of a war.
- Flirting in the middle of a shoot-out.
- There was never a “I love you”, but who needs this when there’s “You and me together would be like a four alarm fire in an oil refinery”, “You were my safe place” and “I can’t live without you”?
- I can go on, but it’ll take five years, so I’ll just finish this long post by saying that I love them so freakin much, so don’t expect me to move on soon.

Gullruten 2017 Red Carpet - Henrik og Tarjei interview translation

-Interviewer: how is it to be here today?

-Tarjei: it is exciting! 

-Henrik: very cozy (koselig)

-Interviewer: how has it been portraying Isak and Even?

-Tarjei: very fun, certainly the most entertaining character i have ever portrayed

(Henrik agres)

-Interviewer: how has it been to be in a tv-series, that people care imensely about, and that has received attention not only in Norway but also worldwide?

-Henrik: Like, you cannot care too much, because what you do on screen is portraying a character. You certainly feel that people care about what we do otherwise, you know. 

-Interviewer: I really care, i am very curious! 

-Henrik: I know (laughs)

-Interviewer: Tarjei you are one of the skam stars who aren’t on social media, and is more of a private type. How has it been for you? (referring to the attention)

-Tarjei: I have just been going to work, to do acting, which i love! So that has been a lot of fun. 

-Interviewer: Has it been a deliberate choice to shield yourself for your season?

-Tarjei: Yes

-Interviewer: Why?

-Tarjei: Because i have fun on my own

-Interviewer: How many instagram followers do you think missed? You would surely have like a million. 

-Tarjei: Yeah it sure could have been, that’s not so bad. (laughs)

-Interviewer: When i look at you i want to date both of you. You two had to hook up and do all sorts of things. How has it been to act as boyfriends? 

-Tarjei: It has been great (koselig)

-Henrik: I think, since we did it together and had a good chemistry, it became a comfortable thing instead of being intimidating. It made it easier to dare and venture into, because it isn’t really a intimidating thing to kiss a guy. 

-Tarjei: It’s really the same as kissing a girl

-Henrik: just with a little stubble. (They both laugh)

-Tarjei: And it is not a challenge to act in love with the character Henrik portrays.

-Interviewer: I dreamt i kissed Henrik in a bathroom. 

-Tarjei: I probably did too. 

-Interviewer: How is it to kiss Henrik:

-Tarjei: Very great. 

-Interviewer: How is it to kiss Tarjei:

-Henrik: He is very skilled, i dont know where he get’s his training. 

-Interviewer: You have kissed a lot in your season.

-Henrik: Yeah it was a part of the job to kiss. 

-Tarjei: Yeah it’s a part of the job now to kiss (i couldn’t really hear what he said)

-Interviewer: I would like to say thank you for the effort you put into your performance, it has been super important for a lot people. You are nominated today, what to you think your chances are? 

-Tarjei: (something along the lines of not wanting to speculate, i guess he says)

-Henrik: I dont think we dare to think about winning. 

(Tarjei leaves)

-Interviewer: ask Henrik what he’s wearing

-Henrik: H&M

-Interviewer: Wow you’re so handsome, that you suit H&M so well.

-Henrik: Thanks

-Interviewer: What expectation to you have for tonights party?

-Henrik: I have never been to Gullruten, actually not many celebrity parties at all, so i’m just gonna have fun with the boys. 

Soooo I don’t really know what I’m doing here but these thoughts have been rolling around in my brain for the longest time and I need a place to let them fly free. 

Why is it still considered a “creepy” and “invasive” thing to ship celebrities together?

I mean, I sort of get it. When you think of the word ship, you immediately get war flashbacks to twitter wars and hateful anonymous asks sent to you for not supporting the same ship as one other person and the crazed fangirls/fanboys who become full fledged obsessed. Like, I get that aspect. 

But aren’t we forgetting where ‘ship’ even comes from? It’s just a shortened version of relationship. When I think of ship, my first thought is “This means I appreciate/admire/respect the relationship between these two people. It means I support it.” 

I creep a lot on the Sprousehart and Lilicole tags for my roleplaying page, and I’ve seen so much. I’ve seen the mild shippers who express an interest in these two as a pairing but can’t really be bothered to see past Bughead. I’ve seen moderate shippers who get excited about “breadcrumbs” but seem to leave it at that, and I’ve seen extreme shippers who dissect every little tweet and Insta like (I have a soft spot for you guys. I’m analytical trash and think there’s a meaning behind everything). And mostly everybody stays in their own zone and respects each others opinion and it’s just like, a super chill and happy tag where we gush about Lili, Cole, and their adorable chemistry on and off screen.

And then you come across blogs who act as if the idea of Sprousehart getting together would be great but don’t understand why people wish for it to happen/talk about it happening.

..Uh..okay..

Have you never had a pair of friends before and noticed the sparks flying between them before they did? Real talk, my cousin and her husband were slow burn for YEARS. It was obvious how in love with her he was and she was so oblivious to it. I stood back and watched and you bet your ass I was the first one clapping when they finally announced they were dating. I supported them. I appreciated what they did for each other. I admired the love between them and watching it grow.

I shipped them. Does that make me creepy? If you wanna say that, sure, but it’s literally just another word for saying I was rooting for my two of my favorite people to be happy.

Let’s get rid of this taboo thing that shipping implicates that we don’t understand they’re real people. I get it. They’re individuals. They have their own things going on, their own history, their own friendships with other people. They’re not a brand and they’re not conjoined twins. When Cole does amazing stuff with his photography, we shouldn’t bombard him with “omg you’re shooting another girl this must mean you don’t appreciate lili anymore”. When Lili hangs out with male friends or gets another project with another love interest, don’t spam her with “you’re cheating on cole!!/you must like this person more”. Obviously not. Have common sense. What I’ve seen from most of this fandom is that a good majority of Sprousehart shippers get that. There’s crazies in every family, though. (Also, some tweenagers should NOT be allowed social media privileges.)

I love Lili. I love Cole. As separate people. I love Lili’s goofy sense of humor, and her ‘no fucks given’ attitude. I love Cole’s intelligence and compassion towards total strangers. I love them together. Heart eyes galore, teasing banter, complete respect is my couple goals aesthetic and they give it to me in spades. 

So yeah. I fucking ship Sprousehart because I respect/admire/appreciate how good these two seem to be together. Whether that ends up being just completely shipping their friendship, or shipping them as a couple if they ever go public, I just support the two of them wholly. In every aspect.

I guess that makes me a creepy motherfucker.

I’m really glad I wrote this lengthy ramble instead of getting dressed. I spend my days productively.

Listen up

I’m not calling anyone out here, I’m not saying other opinions are wrong, but something is bothering me and I just want to get it off my chest.

I’ve read post where they say Matt and Harry have zero chemistry, are not friends and might even dislike one other. 

And I am literally like ???? How? I’m trying to understand those people’s opinions, but I’m having trouble too and I am gonna explain here why:

1. I don’t believe Matt and Harry have zero chemistry together. I saw some of the posts use the gif where Alec gives Magnus kind of a timid smile before he kissed Magnus hello. Let me point out something, there are people dead the demon who killed them, is wondering free. Of course that is going to be on the back of Alec’s mind when he enters Magnus’, you can see something’s bothering him. Not that Matthew is awkward to kiss Harry. (That’s what I think at least). But he still smiles because he sees his boyfriend and his boyfriend makes him happy. Alec cuts straight to business because again people are dead and Azazel is casually wondering free. As for the ‘’Zero chemistry’’ Matt and Harry appear to have some people, to me they do have amazing chemistry. When they portray Alec and Magnus and their romance, it comes alive. It feels real and it’s beautifully portrayed by them.

2. Apparently Harry and Matt don’t even like one other and spend zero time together off screen? Just because we don’t see as much pictures of them together behind the scenes doesn’t mean they don’t get along or don’t spend time together. Hell, they go on double dates with Esther and Shelby almost ALL the time! They spend New Year’s together in London, Chinese new year they spend together with Shelby and Esther and even Valentine’s day. I know that because Matt dedicated the photo credits to Harry on Instagram. Do you really think they’d go on double dates all the time just for Esther and Shelby? I don’t think so.

3. Their interviews together! They connect really well, make each other laugh and I don’t feel any awkwardness between them at all. They are just playful with one other on a different level. 

4. “Matt loves Harry, Matt loves Isaiah, Matt loves Dom, Matt loves everyone.’’ - Matthew Daddario on Isaiah’s 2A Takeover

5. Remember what Cassandra said when she was on a event with Matthew? He kept talking about all the amazing things Harry has done and wanted people to appreciate him for it more. Or that radio interview Harry did and said how Matt was such a cool guy and he loved working with him. Or the interview that he did with Isaiah and he knew about Matt’s bacon story and Isaiah didn’t. COME ON!

6. Sherdario and Shumdario’s friendship can’t be compared. The way I see it is that Dom and Matt pull out the kid in each other and that’s why they are playful around one other. I think Matt and Harry have a more mature friendship where they can just sit down together, talk for hours and have healthy discussions about certain topics. I’m not saying that Matt and Harry can’t be playful with one other or that Dom and Matt can’t have serious conversations, it’s just an observation I have.

My conclusion is that Matt and Harry are friends. Good friends. They do click and they do have chemistry. Of course people can think differently about certain things but saying that they aren’t friends or even dislike each other goes a bit far in my opinion.

Have a great day all!

Kirishima’s mysterious upbringing

Chapter 139 came out, and it had to give this splendid panel of Kirishima getting angry about the cowardice of their opponent.

I’ve been thinking about Kirishima’s attitude since some times, and wondering how come he was so uptight about manliness, and what manliness was exactly for him. A lot of great theories have already been written here about his hypothetical past and involvement with villains, like this one by red-riot so maybe I’m not bringing anything new at all, but it’s still fun to think about so why not make an other theory anyway. If you don’t agree in the end, you can still take this post as an appreciation post about Kirishima. It’s also what it is, kinda.

Okay so here is what I’m wondering about, what if Kirishima was raised by yakuzas? Here are the reasons why. 

1. Yakuzas in My Hero Academia 

To begin with, yakuzas in MHA are pretty much extinct, thanks to heroes’ massive rise in society. There are a few who escaped the fate of being arrested during the dismantling of their organizations, and they’re currently living by keeping low profile. If they’re not doing anything, it’s because All for One was keeping control of what was happening in this dark side of society. Here’s what Overhaul is saying about them.

If elders respected All for One, then it means they could have tried to stir things up, but they didn’t. Their downfall didn’t represented their ruin, but only their withdrawal from society. They’re still here, and some are waiting for the occasion to rise again. Therefore, yakuzas probably are what they have always been, and the existence of a young leader such as Overhaul just proves they’re still on the roll. If yakuzas still stick to their traditional organisation, business and values, then Kirishima could very well come from that kinda family.

Kirishima’s involvement in the new arc can invalidate my theory. But after all, yakuzas are keeping a low profile in society. Maybe his family wasn’t involved in fights for power because they’re already wealthy enough and satisfied with their status. Maybe Kirishima either rejected his family or was rejected by it and he’s not informed of what’s going on with them, be it its choice or not. With such a background, a lot of scenarios are possible. 

2. About his previous appearance

Following what I said, his previous appearance, his low self-esteem and his trouble finding worth in who he is can support this theory. If he was raised by yakuzas, then, there are a great deal of things that could have happened so Kirishima ended up so down on himself. Maybe the heavy burden of being raised in that sorta environment ended up being too much for him. It’s possible either Kirishima or his family was disappointed because of his “limited” Quirk, causing him to be down on himself for it, thinking he’s after all not good enough to live up to his and his family’s expectations. You can’t be that down on yourself unless you’ve contemplated your insecurities for so long you’re convinced you’re nothing special after all. 

Given his previous kinda dark appearance, he must have decided to keep a low profile for a reason or another. Maybe he wants to redeem himself by entering UA and that’s why his appearance changed so much. Maybe he’s trying to find a path for himself and stick to values that his family didn’t recognized in him but he appropriated anyway. There are a great deal of possibilities once you imagine he may come from that kind of strict and demanding environment. 

3. Kirishima’s wealthy background 

For the technical and more canonically aspect now, remember that suspicious behavior Kirishima had when he brought up his night vision googles during Bakugou’s rescue operation. Midoriya stated it was really expensive, and how a young man such as Kirishima can enter in possession of expensive stuff like that? His entire room in the dorms is also full of enhancing material, which must be just as expensive. And when Midoriya asked how he came to acquire them, he purposely avoided the question. So at least, we can say Kirishima has a wealthy background, unless he’s doing some shady activities himself to get money, but I don’t really stick with this idea. It seems too natural for Kirishima for him to not being used to it. So I do think his family is wealthy, and what would stop him from saying where the money is coming from? Yakuzas aren’t the kind of family you can really talk about. Speaking of unusual things Kirishima seems in fact accustomed to, there are some that also lead to think he’s coming from that kind of social environment. Things such as villain’s behavior, handling responsibilities and questioning authority; things he shouldn’t be as comfortable with as he is for a 15 years old unless he grew up with it.

4. His attitude towards villainous behavior

I really like Kirishima and Bakugou’s relationship because they have great chemistry and, as Midoriya puts it, they’ve built each other as equals through time and hardships. And now, to do that with someone as complex and self-centered as Bakugou, you really need to be comfortable enough to see through his problematic attitude and grasp the best in him to begin with. Bonding with Bakugou was tough, as he must be treated with a lot of caution given he’s quick to feel threatened by others as his mental health’s state is frail. But then, just look how easy it was for Kirishima to befriend him. He’s not intimidated by Bakugou, and act naturally respectfully with him since the beginning, providing comfort to Bakugou and making him feel safe enough to don’t act rude and eventually, making him rely on him. Kirishima is someone who’s very honest and genuine, but the way he acts comfortable around Bakugou, and that villain he’s ready to provide comfort and share his story with also shows he’s used to be around people with unusual and violent behaviors. It’s like he already knows how to handle all kind of people from classmates to teachers, pro heroes and villains. He’s often taking the lead and trying to act while thinking of everyone’s sake. Kirishima gives great importance to the group, and naturally always thinks about their cohesion as this core that must stick together. Even when he’s reflecting about his Quirk, what he asks is how he can keep up with everyone else.

The fact that he wants to keep up is probably due to the fact he was already left behind before because he couldn’t meet other expectations. Once more, it’s like this attitude is something not only natural to him, but also something that was cultivated during his upbringing.

5. Kirishima and the sense of responsibility

Kirishima is also incredibly responsible for someone of his age. It first appeared quite early, at USJ when he realized he was in Number 13′s way and wanted to take responsibility for his acts.

Not only he’s kind and considerate, but he’s also ready to take responsibility for others’ behaviors too and call them out when they’re crossing the line. There are a lot, lot of examples where Kirishima interferes in situations that are worsening in front of him even if he’s not involved to begin with.

Once again, he’s thinking of him and others as a group who must stay united, and he’s acting as a leader who’s trying to keep everyone together. In chapter 139, the way he flames up and shouts “A real man would never push all the responsibility on his henchman and escape!!” really makes you wonder. He takes it quite personally, as he’s the only one to react with strong emotions like that, and I think that consideration for “henchmen”, people you are responsible for as a leader, is something he maybe acquired by growing up in an environment that promotes that kind of behavior, as the heir of a family that watches over a whole clan, such as the yakuzas. It was slightly occurring to me before, and now I can’t help but find it suspicious how he’s taking personally the way a leader behaves with their henchmen, and how carefully Hori makes sure to show it so we can’t ignore it.

6. What being manly means to him

Last but not least, Kirishima accords great importance to a manly behavior. Now that word he’s always using is interesting. He doesn’t use “manly” in a way to oppose gender and prone masculinity, but more to scoop up different values and embody them as a whole he’s considering the most honorable behavior. All of these values he’s defending and trying to incarnate really make me thinks of those yakuzas have. Being true to your words (and furthermore pledges), being trustworthy and loyal, respecting hierarchy, knowing your place but also how to deal with authority… Authority is something Kirishima also seems comfortable with. He’s very kind, respectful and thoughtful, he’ll even apologize for others’ behavior, but he’ll trespass rules it if he judges it needs to be done. He wasn’t really worried to break the law when he suggested to go and rescue Bakugou. After that, he only felt guilty when Aizawa pointed out he felt betrayed and it would take time for his trust to be restored; that’s when he feels the more guilty, because breaking that trust is worse than breaking the law. 

Even if he respects authority, he’s ready to question it and act based on his own will because sometimes, there are more important things, such as rescuing and protecting people you care about. Midoriya and Todoroki also did it when they fought Stain, but it happened because of Iida’s wrath. Kirishima deliberately choose to do it. The fact that the whole class was opposed to the idea emphasizes how Kirishima’s decision was unexpected for someone of the hero course. And again, the way he gets angry about the so-called loyalty of the leader that’s escaping just demonstrates his perception of what being manly, being a leader means and the importance he’s giving to it. It means to be trustworthy, inspiring, reliable, considerate towards members of your group and ready to fight to protect them and keep everyone together. Everything Kirishima embodies as a manly behavior really makes me think about yakuzas values and traditional organisation as a family you’re responsible for and must protect. 

Well, there are a lot of thought provoking elements about Kirishima’s attitude, and I find his involvement in this new arc quite fishy. I can be totally wrong, but I still think this attitude and the lack of information about his past hide something important and related to villains, even if it’s not yakuzas. Well, at least it would still make an interesting plot for a fanfic I guess.
