Mafia!Jungkook Imagine Pt.2

Summary:

Imagine your a police officer trying to arrest a mafia boss… A quite special one. In the end, nothing goes like planned… And suddenly he’s your boss.

 Genre:

Mafia!Au, and a little bit of everything?

Part 1// Part 2// Part 3


“The deal was that your collegue is free. Well, he is now. He’s on his way home with the other cop. Make yourself comfortable, sweetie, because your not leaving soon.”

Great. Now you were the one who was being kidnapped and Miller wasn’t going to come and save you. You tried to stay calm, but that wasn’t easy considering that your life was on the line. However, what scared you the most was that you couldn’t see the Mafia guy… He might be standing right behind you with a knife and you wouldn’t even notice. Just the thought of that gave you chills. You slowly walked deeper into the dark, hoping not to run into something. You had to get away from him. If you couldn’t see anything, he probably couldn’t either. You took one step… A second one… You couldn’t hear him. Was he even still here? Where the hell was he and how could he be that quiet? The only thing you heard was your own, hectic breath.

“Oh well, I didn’t expect you to throw yourself at me.”

You jumped and breathed in sharply. His voice… It was directly in front of you. You could even feel his breath on your face now. Just how did he get there? You could have sworn he was standing behind you in the beginning! You quickly took a step back. Your heart was hammering against your chest.

“What do you want from me? Get away.”, you said, keeping your voice as stable as possible. He laughed. Suddenly, you could hear his loud steps. You raised you arms over your head to protect yourself, but…

He wasn’t walking towards you. What was he doing? Before you could think about it any longer, suddenly bright light was dazzling you. You squinted you eyes, trying to get used to the sudden brightness. Why’d he turn on the lights now? What would you see? You slowly tried to open your eyes, not just out of fear but also curiousity. You looked around, immediatly searching for the guy. The room you were in wasn’t as big as you’d thought. And not as… scary. One could even say it was… cozy? You were standing in front of a dark red sofa, just like the one in the bar. The walls were painted in a calming beige. Next to you you noticed a big desk with a wooden chair, but there wasn’t anything laying on it. Besides than that, the left part of the room was empty. You noticed someone moving from the corner of your eye and you quickly turned around. The brown haired guy was standing about 10 metres away from you, leaning against the wall- and he had this wicked smile on his lips, again. He always seemed like he was plotting something, even if he smiled. You couldn’t stop youself from noticing how hot he looked. At least he wasn’t right in front of you this time.

“To answer your question- I just tried to have some fun, but your reaction wasn’t as hilarious as I hoped. Not as funny as everyone before you. Anyways, we’ve got something to talk about. Sit down.”

You just silently watched him, wondering what the hell he was up to. If he was planning on killing you, why didn’t he just do it? If this was a kidnapping, why would he want to talk to you? 

“About what do you want to talk? How I prefer to die? ”, you asked sceptically. Now that you could see where he was, some of the fear from earlier had disappeared. You felt exhausted and confused. What was the point of panicking when you couldn’t change a thing about all this? You didn’t want to sit down and calmly talk about everything. However, suddenly his smile disappeared and he started coming your way. And- again- you couldn’t help it, you were scared.

“Either you sit down yourself or I’ll help you with it. It’s your choice.”, he said. You could tell he wasn’t messing around by the treathening look in his eyes. And you didn’t want to make everything worse, so you quickly sat down on the sofa before he had made his way over to you. You were to tense to notice how comfortable it was. He took the chair and pulled it in front of the sofa, so that he could face you while sitting down. You tried to breath slowly to  calm yourself down. Maybe there was a way to get out of here, you shouldn’t lose your hope that early. The guy was now sitting in front of you, his arms crossed over his chest. He looked at you with a measuring look. It made you feel umcomfortable- not like you’d felt comfortable in the first place.

“So, what do you want to talk about?”, you asked, trying to hide your impatience and confusion.

“Don’t you wonder why I kidnapped you? I don’t just abduct someone because I’m bored. That’s not worth the effort.”

You scoffed internally. Oh, you didn’t wonder at all, wasn’t kidnapping a normal thing to do? Of course you wondered, what was he thinking…? However, you decided against being sarcastic, for you own good.

“I do.”, you said shortly. You were curious, but you hoped he would tell you without you asking him. You wanted to avoid saying something that would make him angry.

“Listen. You might have already noticed that this was a trap. I expected you to come and get your dumb little friend. It’s a shame I had to let him go, he was quite talkative… under special circumstances. However, back to why your here. You’ve been observed for quite some time now. The lady selling street food. The old man living next to you. Even the post man I believe. It’s funny what people do for money.”

Your eyes widened in shock. That couldn’t be true…He must be joking! Why would the Mafia observe you? You were just a common police officer! You recalled all the times you’d got yourself dinner at the street food stall. The lady there had always been a little bit talkative, but Mafia…? And how often you’d done the laundry for the grandpa living next door! You had basically told him everything about your private life… You couldn’t… you didn’t want to believe that, they weren’t part of the Mafia.

“Y-your lying… Why would the Mafia take interest in me? I’m just an average person, I haven’t… I  mean… Why?”, you asked him confused. All this didn’t make sense.. right? The Mafia guy just looked at you emotionless.

“I don’t now either, I’m not the head of the Mafia. I’m a sniper, you know. I was confused to when they told me to kidnap you and inform you about… Your new life. And why would I lie to you?”

By now you were completely done. A sniper. Ok. Not like you cared at this point. But what did he mean by ‘new life’?

“My new life? Are you completely… What do you mean by that? I’m pretty sure I’m the only one who can tell when I need a new life, and I’m quite happy with my old one!” You didn’t even try to hide you anger, but the man in front of you didn’t seem to care.

“The Mafia isn’t. Guess who’s more powerful. But let’s start from the beginning, let me explain everything. These days, there are lots of riots between the different Mafia clans. Which means people are dying… And new people need to be educated. However, right now the kids who are already born into the Mafia are still to young and we need good snipers. We can’t set their life on the line. Your known for you shooting skills and your said to be one of the best police officers. Not like you'be proven that today. But see, (Y/N), you know where this is going.”

You flinched when he said your name. Of course he knew it. You’d told your neighbour. But still, you were in a loss of words. As a police officer you hadn’t been working on cases involving the mafia yet, so you hadn’t noticed any riots between the Mafia gangs. But they must’ve been really bad if the Mafia was already trying to recrute their worst enemies… The Police. Maybe the Police wasn’t their worst enemy anymore.

However, you didn’t need to think twice about that. You weren’t, not under any circumstances, going to work for the Mafia. You’d rather die than kill innocent people. And you knew that’s exacty what you were going to do…

“No way. I’m not going to work for the mafia. Kill me if you want, but I refuse.”,you said, making your words sound harsh. You knew you could never forgive yourself if you’d give in.

The Mafia guy was raising one eyebrow, than he smiled at you. He probably expected this answer, even though he didn’t seem to undertstand it. It did confuse you, but you were curious about his answer.

“Are you sure? You could save peoples lifes. Childrens lifes. I would be the one teaching you, so you don’t need to worry about your skills. If I was you, I’d consider it as long as I’ve got the chance.” He looked you right in the eye and you could tell he was trying to be convincing. It actually seemed like he cared about you. But you weren’t dumb, he was only trying to get his job done. Of course you didn’t want to die, but if saving peoples lifes meant taking others… No, you didn’t have a choice.

“Forget it. I’m not going to work for the Mafia.”

“Is that your last word, (Y/N)?”, he asked sighing.

You just nodded. So that was it. You never expected your life to end like this… All you ever wanted was to help people, to make them happy and feel save. And here you were now. You didn’t even want to think about your parents… You didn’t want to cry infront of this guy. You just wished you’d seen them one last time to tell them how much you loved them. At least you’d saved Officer Millers life.

The brown haired guy stood up and slowly walked to the door. You shuddered,  finally noticing how cold it actually was. You tried not to think of anything. You tried not to think about how your life as a sniper would be. Suddenly, you saw that the Mafia guy had turned around and was looking at you with a strange expression. Now you where the one raising one eyebrow.

“Ah, and (Y/N)… I’m not supposed to tell you, but… As soon as I leave this room and tell my boss about your decision, the bomb in your parents house will be activated.”

You felt your heart drop as your eyes grew wide in shock. He walked on, grabbed the doorknob and opened the door…

NO.

“Wait. WAIT!!!”, you screamed in panic.

The guy turned around, smiling in triumph.

“Welcome to the Mafia, (Y/N). I’m Jungkook and I’ll be your teacher for the next months.”

Why have I never seen any articles about a teacher-student relationship that is not sentenced to death immediately?

As a book-lover, reading maniac, which I am, as soon as I realized I was developing feelings for my teacher, I started looking for advice, swimming through thousands of writings about this topic, entering forums full of people who have claimed to have romantic thoughts about their lecturer. No matter where I stepped into, negative, judging, even shaming aricles popped up, and journalists who clearly never experienced anything like this before, tried to shove their so-called “small talk” into my face, with headlines like:

“10 Student-Teacher Relationships That Cross the Line”
“Why Student-Teacher Relationships Are Never OK”

I was fifteen at that time. I was worried, anxious, desperate, and still just a little girl who had no idea how to keep her feelings in control, because they were too big. I was trying to reach out for help, at least for just a small ray of hope that would show I was not out of my mind, but instead I got virtual shaming, being told that I cannot love someone that is my teacher.

My dear companions in this madness. Girls who feel alone with this. Boys who can’t trust their friends when it comes to feelings. Everyone, who has no one to count on, you are not alone. You are normal. Your feelings are normal. You don’t have to fight what is pure, just because society tells you it’s wrong. Love has infinite faces, yours is just as perfect as anyone elses.

Teachers are not machines who can’t feel for their students. Their struggle is even worse, considering their jobs, they can even go to jail in certain countries and states. We have boundaires -logical, necessary boundaries - stood up by society and law, but that doesn’t mean what we feel isn’t true.

Those who are underage should wait indeed, but not because their feelings are less than a legal person’s, but because law is too strict on this one, and risking your own education and your teacher’s job is not something to play with. Selfishness in this topic is completely out of the question, so many factors are in the game, you have to be smarter than your environment. He might be playing with you, you never know.

I myself was fifteen, I had to hold on and hold back my love millions of times, and here I am still loving this incredible man with my nineteen-year-old self. He may be out of reach, or a dream forever, but I will never regret a moment of loving him. He developed my personality, my emotional quotient, and my perspective of life, and these are bigger than the fact that some people are sceptical and tell others to quit this, like it was a disease. 

Love will never be a disorder. You should keep that in mind. 

If you feel alone, don’t be afraid to reach out for me, or anyone that you trust. Teacher Crush Community will always have your back, many of us are extremely understanding, so let those words be spoken even anonimously. Let go of the shame. We understand you.

rad-ragdoll  asked:

for your headcanon thing, what about Kaminari? I'm sure someone's already asked for Kirishima xD

Ask me a bnha character and I’ll respond with ten head canons

1.) Aggressively bi

2.) Really good at video games. Any kind. Whenever the classes get together to play Mario Party (or any multiplayer game) everyone always wants Kami on their team. His hand-eye coordination is crazy good.

3.) Is really good at picking up on people’s moods. Even when he doesn’t know the person. He tells everyone it’s his second quirk.

4.) Has street smarts flowing out his butt. 

5.) Tries so hard to be hip and trendy and desperately wants everyone to believe that he isn’t trying. He has all the popular magazines under his bed like it’s porn. He would die if anyone found them. Everyone knows and thinks he’s the second tackiest person in class (kiri is the first)

6.) Likes classic literature and, just like the trendy magazines, he hides them under his bed. He thinks people will make fun of him because he isn’t school smart but reads the kind of novels your lit teacher would force you to read. 

7.) *Actually tries really hard in school and it bothers him when people tease him for being “stupid”.

8.) At one point in time he tried dying a lighting bolt onto the other side of his hair. It was a mistake.

9.) Had braces that got removed juuuuust before entering UA. As in he even took the entrance exam with braces. His teeth were all sorts of crooked before hand.

10.) Owns at least one Pikachu plushie. He sleeps with it.

*I wanted to add that it’s canon that it’s hard to get into UA and I don’t think they would accept someone who isn’t intelligent. You have to be smart in order to be a hero and there was even a written portion of the exam. I just think that compared to the others in class 1-A Kami would look less intelligent. He isn’t dumb, but who doesn’t look like an idiot compared to Miss S rank in intelligent Momo?

Ridley Scott’s quotes

RIDLEY’S ORIGINAL IDEAS FOR A SEQUEL
“It certainly should explain what the Alien is and where it comes from…That will be tough because it will require dealing with other planets, worlds, civilizations…The Alien may be one of the last descendants of some long-lost self-destructed group of beings…in many respects it’ll be more interesting [than the first movie], from a pure science-fiction stand point. We’d get into speculative areas, deal with two civilizations.”

“There were no speculative scenes or discussions about what the Alien was and all that sort of thing either. I believe that audiences love those, especially if they’re well done. They give the threat much more weight…"

“I was amazed that no one asked me about this mysterious element of the film, but if you would have asked me in 1978, I would have gladly explained that, in my mind, all this alien ship could be was a battleship…they missed one of the biggest questions of all, which is: who’s the big guy? Who’s flying the ship, basically? And where are they going? And with what? Why that cargo?”

RIDLEY’S ORIGINAL IDEAS FOR A PREQUEL
“All I was doing was turning the chapter and opening the door, because why would that creature have a cargo like that? What was his intention? I used to blindly call it a battleship… I was never really happy about the layout of the eggs on the floor, but that’s the way it was when we did it at the time, and when we actually built the eggs they were sitting in rows, a bit like pineapples, and it was a specific layout, so clearly this was a hold of some kind for some reason, and so you may as well open it up and tell - well it’s that, and it’s deadly. Then the biggest question becomes why, and who would conceive of these things, and where were they going? This is a whole new story.”

ON THE DIFFICULTY OF SCIENCE FICTION FILMS
“Being able to say, ‘anything goes’, that’s also very dangerous, because anything goes becomes rubbish if you don’t watch it. An therefor you’ve still got to create your own parameters for a three act play. You have still got to create your own rule book, because otherwise it’s like,  silly. That’s always been my problem with most films, unless they re reality based. To do science fiction at a high level is tricky. History is straightforward because I’m re-telling a story and I’ve got points of reference. Science fiction, there’s no points of reference. It’s all brand new.”

THE 'CREATION’ PROLOGUE OF PROMETHEUS
“… the sequence at the beginning of the film (Prometheus), that is fundamentally creation. It’s a donation, in the sense that the weight and the construction of the DNA of those aliens is way beyond what we can possibly imagine,” Scott said. Adding that the planet isn’t necessarily Earth, he says, “No, it doesn’t have to be. That could be anywhere. That could be a planet anywhere. All he’s doing is acting as a gardener in space. And the planting that life, in fact, is the disintegration of himself.”

ABOUT THE ENGINEER SHIP DESIGN IN THE PROLOGUE
“They tried to say (to me), why wouldn’t they have the croissant (Juggernaut) at the beginning of the movie? I said, well, considering that saucer is probably at least 10 million before this, why the hell wouldn’t they have changed the design of the spaceship.”

ABOUT THE PROMETHEUS MISSION

“They are going somewhere, but the destination is undisclosed, because it is top secret”

ABOUT THE ENGINEERS
“In a funny kind of way, if you look at the Engineers, they’re tall and elegant … they are dark angels. If you look at [John Milton’s] Paradise Lost, the guys who have the best time in the story are the dark angels, not God.”

“…they’re such aggressive f**kers … and who wouldn’t describe them that way, considering their brilliance in making dreadful devices and weapons that would make our chemical warfare look ridiculous? So I always had it in there that the God-like creature that you will see actually is not so nice, and is certainly not God.”

Hall of heads (in Prometheus) is a rounded, earthy room. Scott told us the faces might be those of apostles, wise men — a superior people, while production designer Chris Seagers revealed that the heads were meant to give a sense of history and gravity to the sacred place… a place where the Engineers stored their information.

“…Covenant gets us a step closer to who and why was this thing designed to make human beings. And if you think it’s them,” Scott said, gesturing to the monolithic figures of the Engineers surrounding us (hall of heads), “you’re dead wrong.”

WHY WERE THE LONGER SCENES CUT IN PROMETHEUS?
"I think what’s good about it is that we tell enough, but not too much…there were longer scenes, and I think fundamentally when you go in too deep, and the running time, well not necessarily the running time…you have got one hour introducing elements and everything, this and that, before significant physically kicks in, so I thought that’s enough. In the original Alien there was 47 minutes before John Hurt looks into the egg…and then it kicks off and starts its own engine. There was about an hour on this one and I thought that was time enough.”

WHAT WAS THE PURPOSE OF THE LV-223 INSTALLATION
“In the story we confront one of these characters who is called an Engineer, who is of a race, that if we do a sequel to this prequel, we’ll find out who this race was and where they are. Because they are not of this planet, where we are right now (LV-223), and we will find out during the story, that actually this moon…I always parallel it to, I believe, the British in the second World War developed anthrax. All their experimentations went on in this place in - I believe in the Irish channel - which is like any old power station which is an atomic nuclear reactor, which is locked up for the next 500-600 years because you can’t cleans anything of anthrax. So I always think of and refer to it (LV-223) as the Anthrax Island of this race called the Engineers”

WHY THE ENGINEERS WANTED TO WIPE OUT HUMANITY AND START OVER
“…if you look at it as an “our children are misbehaving down there” scenario, there are moments where it looks like we’ve gone out of control, running around with armor and skirts, which of course would be the Roman Empire. And they were given a long run. A thousand years before their disintegration actually started to happen. And you can say, “Lets’ send down one more of our emissaries to see if he can stop it. Guess what? They crucified him.”

“If the planet went wrong, they would want to wipe it clean. But that could take 500 years. When they revisit –  because different visitors would come back and see we’re not doing so well – they would look at these human beings that are jerks, that are killing the planet, killing themselves, can’t settle down, they’re like a bunch of children. We should wipe it clean…We will drop some of that stuff and wipe it clean. It could come in the form of a plague. In effect, the thing that is dropped is a plague. It kills everything beneath it, but it is insidious and spreads everywhere. It will take about a year, and you have got nothing left except flora. No fauna. The meat is gone.”

WHY DAVID WIPED OUT THE ENGINEERS IN COVENANT
“Remember, an Engineer tore his head off. So the Engineer has proven to be an enemy of him (David), and whilst he stood there in wonder at the Engineer when he initially saw him, Peter Weyland over stepped the mark. His request was simply about mortality…the Engineer was kind of disgusted by that, because that was a question beneath his species. And so he killed Peter Weyland, and in effect killed David as well. So David comes back from that clearly not liking the Engineers.”

“…That’s why he drops it on their city, because he hates them. He has no respect for Engineers and no respect for human beings.”

THOUGHTS ON SHAW
“When you are philosophizing about the reasons for life, faith, God, it’s always tricky because you don’t want to get into long dissertations. And the trick of filming, which is so wonderful about film, is you can actually have a conversation between a father and her daughter, and she says 'how do you know it’s beautiful?’, and he says 'because it’s what I believe Elle, what do you believe?’. And she looks over to this guy who’s in her cyber sleep that shouldn’t be there, and then you are off and running. So now you know that this is a person who has faith in the hereafter and certainly faith in her maker. She believes in God.”

THOUGHTS ON DAVID
“The predecessor of Ash is David”

“In this one the idea to have David was not just useful, it was essential. Don’t hide the fact that he is a, don’t make him a revelation. Robots aren’t a revelation anymore. Better to say, that’s a really strange film, what the f**k is he? Weyland says he’s my favorite son, but he has no soul, but he will have endless life. So in a very matter of fact way, we are talking about a creation…”

“..if it’s completely cyber, how deep can that relationship go…can the cyber thing have feeling for you? We don’t know, because it depends how sophisticated it is, and it also depends on how well you treat them. So you are re-polishing the whole notion of artificial creation, and that can become a serious relationship.”

“There is a lot of good information where he talks about creation. Idle hands are the devil’s work. Come look at my success. So gradually you are aware - Oh my God, he designed this muther f**ker - rather than it came from the Engineers. It came from him,  but he needed to use their black, deadly cleansing lotion (laughter)”

THOUGHTS ON WALTER
“David was so successful that Peter Weyland made quite a few.  Then Walter was part of that process, he was a follow through which you learned through the movie, except there were various governors on him.  He had an emotional governor and never hurt a human being.  So he could turn on David in like a heartbeat, as one creature to another and have them go at each other, but he would never attack another human being.”

ON THE DAVID/WALTER SWITCH
“You knew Walter was David fairly early…That’s why I had him go there and turn and look around (when David appears in Walter’s clothes after the fight at the edge of the plaza, he turns and looks back with a strange look on his face)…in that moment, AI or not, I am a very logical person. So I’m thinking, wait a minute, you mean he cut his hand off, changed his clothes, cut his face open before going out there? So I was thinking, if I just do it, it’ll fly by, because I think you are sandwiched between so much reason to get out of there, and then the appearance of the alien, it will get forgotten. So that’s sometimes where you cheat, as a playwright. So it’s about 20 minutes that I cheated with…if you only found out (it was David) when he was tucking her in (Daniels), you have not enjoyed the possibility that something is wrong.”

ABOUT THE ULTRAMORPH (deacon)
“(in Prometheus) I left the xenomorph out, and tried to evolve int the first step of how it begins again, with that deacon (the ultramorph), and that’s the precursor to what happens.”

“It is a precursor to what was designed as the Alien (Giger)”

ABOUT THE NEOMORPH
“You get an unarmored - Alien was always a hard shell. Think about a cockroach. A cockroach is kind of beautiful when you examine one. Any insect is beautiful. So the alien was a beautiful insect with a hard shell. So that means its armored to a certain extent. But the Neomorph is soft, a little bit like us humans. We’re pretty weak actually. If I prick you, you’ll bleed and go 'oh my God’ and you could die. So were not very strong. So the Neomorph is a bit more vulnerable but its an evolution from human DNA.”

HOW SHAW FIGURED INTO DAVID’S EXPERIMENTS
She was integral to what David carried out later (breeding the xenomorph).“

ABOUT PROMETHEUS 2

"There were questions that remained unanswered: Where did the ship come from? Who was the pilot? What was his cargo? And why does human DNA play such an important role for the alien? Not to answer that, I thought was crazy. The first step to unlock those secrets was then Prometheus.”

“In the story we confront one of these characters who is called an Engineer, who is of a race, that if we do a sequel to this prequel, we’ll find out who this race was and where they are. Because they are not of this planet, where we are right now (LV-223)”

“Yes, but it (link to LV426 and Alien) won’t be in the next one. It will be in the one after this one or maybe even a fourth film before we get back into the ‘Alien’ franchise… The whole point of it is to explain the Alien franchise and to explain the how and why of the creation of the alien itself. I always thought of the alien as kind of a piece of bacterial warfare. I always thought that that original ship (Juggernaut), which I call the croissant, was a battleship, holding these biomechanoid creatures that were all about destruction.“

"I think what’s good about it is that we tell enough, but not too much…You don’t want to elaborate any more than that. And then they are off and running. It’s topped by a terrific moment, when she says 'do you mind’, and she puts his head in the bag.  She’s never going to put his head on top of that body, because when she does he will become deadly again…it ends with 'I’m still searching’. You don’t ask, how’s she going to live? She isn’t going to sleep? What’s she going to feed on, what’s she going to drink? You can get into all that, but then it becomes Robinson Crusoe, and that’s another film.”

“I’d love to explore where the hell [Dr. Shaw] goes next and what does she do when she gets there, because if it is paradise, paradise can not be what you think it is. Paradise has a connotation of being extremely sinister and ominous.”

“So I’m now going to the next one (Paradise), which is the next evolution directly connected with the first one, which was…Shaw, when she repaired Michael Fassbender (who was) in two pieces, and we’ll kind of pick it up there and it will evolve.”

“The beast is done. Cooked. I got lucky meeting Giger all those years ago. It’s very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because [the studio] said it’s obscene. They didn’t want to do it and I said, ‘I want to do it, it’s fantastic. But after four [Alien films], I think it wears out a little bit. There’s only so much snarling you can do. I think you’ve got to come back with something more interesting. And I think we’ve found the next step. I thought the Engineers were quite a good start.”

Scott said viewers could expect to see Prometheus 2 follow Noomi Rapace’s Elisabeth Shaw and Michael Fassbender’s decapitated android David in their mission to find the Engineers’ home world and find out why the human-like creatures want to destroy mankind. “[We’ll] find out how he gets his head back on,” he joked, adding that several drafts of the screenplay had been written.

“It starts off with a very grand idea—or a grand question, really. Who are they and why did they create such evil biology and bacteriology? And [in creating], to protect themselves from what? So the questions are answered there, or rather, beginning to be answered in Prometheus 2.”

“…You can’t have a person go off into the galaxy, and have a person who’s still got his head off. Once that head goes back on, he’s really dangerous, but he’s also very seductive. So maybe he will persuade her to help him put the head back on.”

“With Prometheus 2 what I’m trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of alien in the third act.”

ABOUT THE CHANGE IN DIRECTION BY BRINGING THE XENOMORPH BACK IN COVENANT
“…Because everyone said I missed the Alien. I said, really? And I said, OKaaayy (rolling his eyes). So I came back on…its actually 5 steps, you see 5 steps (5 stages of the alien). Pretty nasty.”

“..comments were, that actually they missed him (the xenomorph)…they missed the evolution…so I thought we had better include it and try it out, so this (Covenant) is the trail run”

“It went straight up there, and we discovered from it that [the fans] were really frustrated. They wanted to see more of the original [monster] and I thought he was definitely cooked, with an orange in his mouth. So I thought: ‘Wow, OK, I’m wrong’. The fans, in a funny kind of way – they’re not the final word – but they are the reflection of your doubts about something … and then you realize ‘I was wrong’ or ‘I was right’. I think that’s where it comes in. I think you’re not sensible if you don’t actually take [the fans’ reaction] into account.”

“Years ago, I kept mulling over what Alien 2 could be. I was fiddling around with some ideas. I was always fascinated with why this thing [the xenomorph] would be made, by whom, and for what purpose? …I think I have to go again. We will see who made it (the xenomorph), and why. That’s what’s interesting.”

The planet it (the xenomorph) was on – and I was looking at the dark side of the moon – would be called Paradise. Paradise is a very ominous word…In a way it is Prometheus 2. It’s exactly the same story. But it was always in the works to be called that [Alien: Paradise Lost]. Is Prometheus actually taking us off course from where I’m going, which is actually backing into the first Alien… I’ve even got connections with Ripley [in this], but I’m not telling you what.

ABOUT ALIEN: COVENANT AND THE FUTURE MOVIES

“I don’t know. [I’ll make] maybe two more [films], or maybe one more, I don’t know…”

“..comments were, that actually they missed him (the xenomorph)…they missed the evolution…so I though we had better includes it and try it out, so this (Covenant) is the trail run”

“If this [Covenant] is successful, and then the next one, and then there will definitely be three more.”

“There will be another one before we kind of literally and logically, clockwise, back into the rear back head of [the original] Alien…It will go Prometheus, Awakening, Covenant.. fairly integral where this colonization ship is on the way….”

“There will be three or four different players coming in to investigate, one of which will be the Engineers arriving back to find their planet decimated…Those ships (Juggernauts) come and go on regular intervals. I see them as the gardeners of space…where we go next is obvious. Were gonna actually go to the planet…

"When that’s finished there’ll be another one and then another one, which will gradually drive into the back entrance of the film in 1979. So in other words, why was this space jockey there and why did he have an Alien inside him? And those questions will be answered.”

"We are heading towards the back end of the first Alien, so that may be feasible (bringing a young Ripley in). I don’t think it will…Ripley is going to be "somebody’s” daughter, obviously…We are coming in from the back end, right? And you know the time constraints, of …what is the time between this film,  where we leave David going off into tending for that colony. I think we are probably two films out from even considering her.“

"…we can come in at the back end of the first Alien. But what I think we’ve unearthed is a much larger, bigger universe and story, so I think it will be some time before we ever reach the backend of the first Alien. It’s still evolving now. I’m already having another one written right now, let’s call it Covenant 2. That’s with John Logan and we’ve already got the three act plan on where it’s going to go and where it’s going to connect, but it’s evolving and getting bigger all the time. I don’t know where it will end!”

“I always thought the journey would be very much embedded, at least 50% in religion. Security blanket. You can go there next. When I get there, I’m looking at the colonies and what happens, and how it disintegrates…it’s being written now, the sequel to Covenant…John (Logan, the writer) is a very good playwright. What I love is he lays out the three acts immediately up front in simple skeleton form. So you are staring at that and that’s the point where real discussion and details and starts to get embedded”.

“They (colonists) will go there (Origau 6), they will evolve, and they will form a new world.”

“Whether we bring Daniels back or not in the next one…she has to come back..I’m not sure that’s the right thing”

“It’s about a 10 page thing (Covenant 2) and it’s being worked on right now. It will evolve logically into the next place, of course…and after that I’m not telling you…we can bring it back to talk about the creation, inevitably about God, and da, da da, da da…so the (Alien) universe is doing that (makes a flying gesture), and you can go on. I think I have woken up a monster.”

“Whether we bring Daniels back or not in the next one…she has to come back..I’m not sure that’s the right thing”.

“we’re writing [a sequel] now, as we speak. I’ll be filming that within 14 months.”

“…The alien franchise should be into War of the Worlds by now. That’s where I’m going…they (Fox) don’t know it yet, but that’s what were doing, Fox.”

ABOUT THE DERELICT JUGGERNAUT IN ALIEN

“It’s a vehicle. It doesn’t look like it crashed. It looked like it may have had a forced landing, but it landed. And why did it land, and why was the pilot damaged? Because something had gotten loose in the cargo, and had evolved, and taken him out. And so, what could that be?…Had he set up a distress signal that we in our 21st century electronics had caught technology that was a million years old.”


“…he’s (the space jockey) one of the group that had gone off and his cargo had gotten out of control…because he was heading somewhere else and it got out of control…and actually he had died in the process, so that would be the story there. That ship happened to be a brother to the ship that you see that comes out of the ground at the end (of Prometheus). They are roughly of the same period give or take a couple hundred years, right? Other than that, there’s no real link except it explains, I think, who may have had these capabilities, which are dreadful weapons way beyond anything we could possibly conceive, bacteriological drums of shit that you can drop on a planet.”

“In the original, it was a biomechanical weapon. I imagined it to be on board a war ship that had to leave its course and had to land. Perhaps it crashed because one of the aliens had escaped. The weapon was then sleeping at the crash site, waiting for someone to pass.”

“I wanted a fossil, almost,” said Scott regarding the Space Jockey’s integration with his technology, “one which you’d have a hard time deciding where he leaves off and the chair, on which he died, begins.”

“I always wanted to go back and make an Alien 5 or 6, where we find out where they came from and go there and answer the question, who are they? Mars is too close, so they can’t be gods of war, but the theory in my head was, this was an aircraft carrier, a battlewagon of a civilisation, and the eggs were a cargo which were essentially weapons. So right, like a large form of bacteriological/biomechanoid warfare.”

“This Space Jockey I’ve always thought was the driver of the craft…[He is] a perfect example of Giger’s mind, which is ‘where does biology end and technology begin?’ because [Giger] seems to have grafted the creature into what was essentially a pilot’s seat. But clearly from here, this is where the [warning] transmission would emanate from, probably in an automatic transmission… maybe one of the eggs had been disturbed and a creature had got out, had attacked the rest of the crew, don’t ask me where they got to, but he’s pretty gruesome…”

DID THE COMPANY KNOW ABOUT THE ALIEN EGGS IN THE DERELICT JUGGERNAUT?
“I think any corporation that sends probes into unknown territory is going to think of the possibility of finding something new,” he said. “I’m sure that the crew members on all its ships would have been briefed to bring back anything of interest. It would be part of one’s job to bring it back. An alien, of course, would be of top priority. This particular corporation didn’t have a preconceived notion that an alien would be found on this mission, much less the particular Alien that is brought onto the ship. The idea of bringing it back alive would not have been on the minds of the corporate executives when they first received the alien transmission. They just had high expectations when they ordered the Nostromo to investigate – it was purely out of curiosity.”

THOUGHTS ON THE ALIEN

“Loose on the ship, this new alien begins to lay eggs in the bowels of the ship. It lives to propagate and must find food for its offspring - in this ace the crew of the Nostromo upon who the young aliens can feed their eggs until a new host comes along and prods the eggs. Then the cycle begins all over again.”

“What gave us the cocoon concept was that insects will utilize other’s bodies to be hosts of their eggs. That’s how the alien would use Dallas and each of the crew members it kills. This explains why the alien kills them one by one. It wants to use each person as a separate host each time it has new eggs…The biological make up of humans was useful, however, for the alien eggs to feed on…"Omni: Screen Flights, Screen Fantasies.
“Like a butterfly or an insect, it [the Alien] has a very limited lifespan in which to reproduce itself … [it] only has a limited life cycle of, maybe, four days like an insect … the Alien lifeform lived to reproduce … [Ripley] killed it, but it would have died soon anyway.”

THOUGHTS ON THE EGG-MORPH SCENE IN ALIEN
“What gave us the cocoon concept was that insects utilize others’ bodies to be the hosts of their eggs,” Ridley said in 1984. “That’s how the Alien would use Dallas and each of the crew members it kills. This explains why the Alien doesn’t kill everybody at once, but rather kills them off one by one: it wants to use each person as a separate host each time it has new eggs.”

"Loose on this ship, this new alien, begins to lay eggs in the bowels of the ship. It lives to propagate and must find food for it’s offspring - in this case, the crew members of the Nostromo, upon whom the young aliens can feed in their eggs until a new host comes along prodding the eggs. The life cycle begins all over again”

“The scene which was cut was one in which one of the crew discovers the bodies of one of the others being used as food. It was just too gruesome.”

“They are morphing, metamorphosing…they are changing into, being consumed, I guess, by whatever the alien organism is, into an egg.”

THOUGHTS ON ASH
Ash was programmed with a human ‘back-story’, though he was well aware of his artificial nature: “That was a consideration I had to deal with. There are a number of ways of approaching it, but the possibilities come down to either letting him know or programming him so he thinks he’s human. All the space in between was open, but we went with letting him know. If we had decided to keep it from him, there were all kinds of things we could have done, from programming him to know at a certain point, like an emergency, or even putting a complete memory in him that would give him a complete background – parents, schooling, brothers, the whole thing.”

“We theorized that the Alien would feel or understand that Ash was a construction of robotics, however complex and strange, Because Ash wasn’t human, he’d have been no use as a host for its eggs.”

“It all start with 2001…HAL was one of the most genius ideas of Kubrick, where the machine takes over. Then I had to do a film called Alien, and in there we had a great idea of having any corporate vehicle or vessel of such magnitude and cost, would have to have a company man on board. Better if the company man is an AI, and nobody on board knows who the AI is. It’s always kept a secret. Because everyone looks human, no one knows…Ash is in fact the after runner of David and Walter.”

THOUGHTS ON THE NOSTROMO CREW
“I guess if you spend a lot of time together in space the camaraderie will  gradually disappear, and each person will become isolated with their own thoughts and their memories of where they’ve been and where they’re going to. And therefore, all of the characters are designed as not really being comrades. There’s a kind of cold relationship amongst all of them.”

“I think the crew members of the Nostromo seem spirited only because of their argumentative nature, which is due to the fact that they probably can no longer stand the sight of each other. It wouldn’t matter how it was all worked out in the pre-voyage stage, where a computer probably determined the compatability of the unit; like all crews in confined spaces, they’d get on one another’s nerves and would be cutting each other’s throats in six months’ time. I tried to glean as much as I could from present-day astronauts who go through preparing for prolonged periods in space. I then factored in ten years in space and tried to envision how a character would react to going off for that kind of period. Obviously it would raise all sorts of psychological problems above and beyond claustrophobia and melancholia.”

“I loved the minimal dialogue, the minimalist characterisation – what do you need to know? Once this thing is loose, I don’t want to have scenes talking about mum and dad back on the planet.”

“you can’t afford to have love affairs in deep space. If you do, you immediately have two groups aboard. The pair who are in love and the rest of the crew. That’s the beginning of problems unless you are a space pioneer and settle down with your family.”

"There was a line through the movie which had a … more by innuendo than anything else, that there was something going on between Dallas and she [Ripley]. And then later, I thought what was really curious was -could be interesting- there was something going on between her and Veronica, which I thought was far more probable. I mean a hundred years from now, you know, that’s certainly not gonna be remarkable in space. In fact, in space relationships are probably gonna be discouraged, and if you have the need for sex, it can be with either gender. Really doesn’t matter, right?”

“Veronica was always great at barely controlled terror. Catatonic terror. She’s always like, two steps from a heart attack, which I think she finally does at the end – have a heart attack.”

"I wanted Lambert to get sucked out of the ship through an opening about the size of a keyhole. Not a very heroic ending – but dramatic. We couldn’t afford it, besides, I couldn’t work out in those days how to squeeze a body through a hole that big.”

ON THE AGE OF THE NOSTROMO
"Speaking of the Nostromo’s technology, Ridley Scott said in 1979 that “the machine that they’re on could in fact be 60 years old and just added to over the decades. The metal-work on it could be 50 years old.” That means it is much older than the Prometheus and Covenant.

ABOUT QUESTIONS NOT DIRECTLY ANSWERED
“The clues are there right through (in Prometheus). I do hope they don’t write essays about this in thirty years time. I’d rather they got it now. It’s all there if you are looking. It’s quite subtle.”

ON CRITICISM OF HIS FILMS
"I don’t make films for other people. I make films for me. And so far its pretty good, because I’m still here after 35 years. So there’s a great expression, 'f**k you very much’.”

ABOUT FILM SUCCESS AND PROFIT
“The global world market place is changing…entertainment looks attractive when you read about the few films that makes these insane amount of money, but what they (investors) don’t know is that they don’t always do that. There’s a level going about it on the business side, and that’s not necessarily the box office. If it does fine in the box office, that’s OK. But - it will play for years on television, reissuing DVDs…and so on, and so on. So there is an industry just in that…a lot of the revenue comes in from that over the years…The important thing to do is make it.”

My Review of The Originals 4x05 - I Hear You Knocking

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who is still confused by The Hollow. It’s essentially faceless right now and that’s what makes it so frightening. It could be anyone or anything. After watching this episode it didn’t help to clarify things, but whatever The Hollow’s end game is I have a feeling it’s going to take a lot of power to stop it.


- Favourite Scenes

1. Freya
Can we just take a moment to appreciate how bad-ass Freya is? That girl had a head injury but still managed to say screw it my brother is in danger, I need to go help him or it ain’t going to end well. I truly applaud that girl and honestly the Mikealson family will probably be screwed if Freya hadn’t came into the picture. That girl has some serious fire and magic. You do not want to mess with her in any way.

2. Klaus and Marcel
Eh, I don’t think it was particular smart of Klaus to show Marcel the weapon that could kill him….I’m pretty sure it’ll be the first thing he’d be after once he figures how to get out of the same jail cell he put Klaus in. But putting that to the side for a minute. The mind games The Hollow played throughout the episode with both of them was downright creepy. I can’t imagine the feeling of having your mind completely manipulated like that. Which makes me wonder if The Hollow has something to do with the ancestors buried in the cemetery? Or like I mentioned before if it could have something to do with Davina?

- Least Favourite Scene

1. Sofya
Why is it whenever Marcel gets a “girlfriend” she becomes incredibly annoying? It happened with Aya (even though technically her and Marcel weren’t a thing) and now it’s happening again with Sofya. I don’t know why she so desperately want’s to kill Klaus, but honey, plenty have tried and each of them have failed Please bring back Davina, Cami and even Rebekah? Because I rather them have screen time then Sofya…

- My rating of the episode (it will be a rating out of 10)
I will rate this episode a 7 and a half/10

- Favourite quote/line
ELIJAH: And if you should indeed prevent the redemption of the cruel, wicked, the vindictive Niklaus Mikaleson. I promise you, I’ll deliver another kind of nightmare.

Oliver: “Honey why aren’t you ready yet? We have to leave in 10 minutes”

Awa: “Ughhh I know … can we please just stay home?” 

Oliver: “Awa you’ll be fine - My mother does not hate you”

Awa: “She literally said you couldn’t take me to prom because I was fat and not popular enough”

Oliver: “Cmon, that was a really long time ago and I’m sure she didn’t mean it. And well .. at least now you can blame being fat on the pregnancy”

Awa: “Oliver .. remember when we talked about how it is a good idea to think before you speak …” 

so through pure crazy happenstance, my entire 4-person ESO dungeon crew was on at the same time, and we decided to run Blackheart, which we hadn’t sucessfully done yet (ran it once with 3 people: healer, tank, squishy DPS. did not end well.).but our less squishy dps rogue was on so we tried again.

and had ZERO problems until we hit the final boss, Blackheart himself, who is apparently only supposed to use his “unavoidable pounce that turns you into a mostly useless skeleton for 20 seconds” attack on the tank. and he was using it on EVERYONE. there was a point where our tank was the only one NOT turned into a useless skeleton, and it seemed to last a LOT longer than 20 seconds (plus he would pounce again the second you turned back, before you even got to your feet. and it can’t be blocked or dodged.)

his swarming ads (dumb little skeleton archers are only supposed to spawn for six at a time but we were easily getting 10 or more. I caught like 7 in a well timed ultimate attack of a stun/dot bubble and there were still at least three fucking about, not counting teammates that were skeletized.

we wiped. twice. and then we tried a trick we saw online: there’s a spot on the map where there’s a rock just off the beach, and the ads will all try to swarm you there and cluster up tight enough to be easily dispatched with a couple of aoe attacks, buying several minutes to hack away at the boss unhindered. awesome. let’s try that.

except that’s not what happened.the boss tried to use the teleport-pounce to skeletize our healer, who was on the only spot for a good ten feet in every direction where he could STAND while the rest of us were swimming nearby.

he teleported and never came back.

schrodinger’s boss got stuck outside the game boundaries, neither alive nor dead. and no amount ofwaiting or leaving the dungeon and coming back in would fix it.

we broke the fucking dungeon. on the last boss.


GO TEAM.

Angel VI - Writer!AU

Word count - 1311
Summary - Being the assistant of the writer Do Kyungsoo is rather.. interesting.

Chapters:

(1) / (2) / (3) / (4) / (5) / (6) / (7) / (8) / (9) / (10)

“Good lord, all foods on a stick. What is that?!” You reply with a sarcastic ‘good morning’ as you try to cover it with your hair, but Yixing coming closer to examine doesn’t make you feel any less exposed to your gift this morning. “Did you meet a bloodsucker on the way here?! That is not a very discreet hickey.”

His reaction is exquisite, “More like Do Kyungsoo, the life sucker.”

Memories of this morning come back to life, there has been a slight shift in ways to annoy each other when it comes to you two. Occasionally, Kyungsoo would still send you out to do meaningless things such as telling you to handwrite his perfectly printed schedule for the week, to just, in the end, tell you he can’t read it and use the printed version. All just to get on your bad side.

Then he has those days where he wakes up in the mood to make you flustered, to tease you. Just like today, when he attached his pouty lips to your collarbones just because you weren’t able to join him on his trip to Busan because you had an appointment with Yixing.

Yixing throws a scarf your direction and turns around telling you to cover it up, and when you tell him you are done he acts as if he has been holding up his breath for ages. “Thanks for letting me lend your scarf.”

“Believe me the pleasure is all mine, so now that all stains are.. ‘erased’.. let’s talk about the success of your short story! This has to be celebrated! So I think you shouldn’t be wearing baggy sweatpants tonight.” It amazes you how positive he can make you.

“Thank you so mu-”

Someone interrupts your words with repeated calls of your name, turning around you see someone unexpected standing in the doorway.

“Jongin!”

“Hyung! What are you doing here?” Jongin seems really out of breath, his hair is completely a mess though that kind of suits him.

“This is my place you punk,” he kicks his butt, “get out.”

Jongin ignores his words and just lets his butt get kicked repeatedly while he points at your breathlessly but manages to talk, “I need you,” he pulls you with him.

“What? No! Dongsaeng is mine today.” Yixing protests but before he can even stop Jongin, he already has already turned the corner with you following. “Kim Jongin I am older than you!”

Ignoring Yixing’s last words he shouts, “Goodbye, hyung!” quickly before the two of you completely disappear.

“Sorry for interrupting the two of you, I guess I just really wanted to speak to you.” He scratches the back of his head, “I kind of wanted to apologize and explain my behavior at the last party.”

“That’s okay,” you shrug as you hold a warm cup of tea between your hands blowing away the steam. Even though you said it’s no problem, judging by his expression he doesn’t feel the same way. Something is still bothering him.

“It’s just that… I guess that I just envied you.” Him envying you? The son of a millionaire that can seriously bathe in freshly printed bills? He laughs when he sees your frowned face and continues explaining. “You see I got accepted in this fancy pants arts place for my dancing in France, which is my dream, but since my father is so opposed to me going I have to throw my chance in the bin.”

“Why are you letting him stop you though? If you want to go.. then just go.”

“It’s not that simple, I also have my g-”

You interrupt him, “I think it is that simple. I don’t see why his opinion about your future is more important than your own. I know he is important, he is your father anyway. But I think you are old enough to decide for yourself, besides are you willing to live with the regret of not going?” He says nothing. “I thought so. I should go now..”

Taking your cup in hand you bid him farewell as you get up to leave, right before you walk outside the door he calls you to a halt. “Oh and.. thank you.” He smiles.

-

“What is that hideous thing around your neck?” You can see his frown through the screen.

“Oh this?” your hand reaches the scarf that is around your neck to cover up, “it’s Yixing’s.”

“Well, take it off.”

Does he really want the whole world to see what he did to you or something? “No.”

“Yes.”

“No.” You protest again.

Now.” He demands.

“Why?”

“Do you want me to mark you on a more visible spot next time?” He threatens, and even though he is an arrogant self-satisfied jerk.. he does always keep his word when it comes to stuff like this. “Wouldn’t that feel much better?”

“Not really no,” you try to reach for it again but he quickly holds it out of your reach. “Come on, Kyungsoo. I can’t show up with something like this tonight.”

His lips curve into a cheeky smile as he mumbles, “I don’t mind looking at it all night.” While holding his laugh. “I’m sorry! I’m sorry.” But he laughs anyway. “Hey look, I am still in Busan I have to get something done with Junmyeon, okay? I won’t make it back home so you should go by yourself to the party. I will meet you there. I swear.” He teases you by placing his lips to the front camera and laughs before he says goodbye.

But where is he?

You are standing in one of the most beautiful dresses you have ever even laid eyes upon, while the party takes place inside that has been thrown for you, and you are waiting for the man who promised you he’d be here. It has been over 2 hours and you have tried to reach his cellphone for at least 10 times now, yet he hasn’t picked up a single time. Yixing has tried to push you inside multiple times but has failed every attempt to succeed.

At the moment, you are growing desperate. He promised he’d be there, and half an hour too late he can’t even text you to tell you why he’s running late? Or at least tell you he is late?

You decide to just head inside, with a heavy heart and a head down. What if something happened to him?

By the time you are back inside after all the people congratulating you and giving you compliments on how your short story has affected their perspectives, you get back to head over to Yixing, who welcomes you with an open heart. Also concerned about your worries. “I can’t believe he said he’d come, I worked on this so hard for months and he just stood me up. I want to be mad at him, but what if it’s because something happened?” Right then someone catches your eyes.

“Junmyeon!” How did he get here? Wouldn’t he have driven with Kyungsoo to the party if they were together in Busan? Ignoring your question where Kyungsoo is, he instead congratulates you with a big hug. He obviously has consumed a lot, again. Like.. usually. “Junmyeon, you really need to tell me where Kyungsoo is.”

“Uhh..” he slurs, “the hospital.” You want to ask him if he is kidding. Ask him if he is serious. Make it clear for yourself that he isn’t saying random stuff because he is drunk. But when you ask him to confirm it, the words still don’t hit you. As if your world has stopped for a second and you can’t comprehend the information that is being passed to you right now. “I said the hospital!! Hospital!!”

“Then what the hell are you doing there! Why aren’t you with him?! Why didn’t you tell me sooner!?”

Junmyeon giggles, and shrugs. “ohhhh, it’s not him! It’s that Miyoung that got into an accident.”

A/N: Yea, after ages of not updating this story I kinda feel like this is a bad chapter but it gets extremely dramatic from here so hm.. it was so short it’s embarrassing. I will update the next one quickly, as an err.. christmas present :)?

I have a little pokemon go story.

It’s all about self discovery, and correct decisions… enjoy.

So, There was this team Instinct gym being fought. So I walked over, and as soon as it was defeated, I stuck my flareon in there. My flareon is 1382 CP (not too amazing but w/e), I named it “Blaze It”, and they’re beautiful. ANYWAY. So I’m like “Hey if it was my team, they’ll just stick their pokemon in there with mine and be on their way.”

It was not however, and the gym was being attacked again within the next second.

I was in luck!

And by luck, I mean I was presented with an opportunity to be a complete dick, and I took it.

Obviously it was some team Mystic person, because all the other gyms were blue around me. So I stayed there, and I waited around for 10-12 seconds before clicking on the gym, and catching it JUST as they defeated it.

As soon as that happened, I stuck Dante (my Hypno) in there, and then healed up Blaze It.

AGAIN, they tried to take it, but I repeated what I did before, and replaced Dante with Blaze It. This person was a crusin’ for a brusin’ and kept coming at me, so I flippin’ did this AT LEAST twenty more times, all the while laughing to myself with glee at the thought of how frustrated they must be.

As I left Blaze It to get their butt torn off once again, I went in and re-named Dante to “LOL GET REKT”…

As soon as Blaze It was defeated, I stuck Dante in there, fitted with his shiny new, mocking title, and then I waited.

𝒯𝒽𝑒𝓎 𝒿𝓊𝓈𝓉 𝓼𝓽𝓸𝓹𝓹𝒆𝓭.

I waited for another five minutes or so, and someone threw in a 2k+ CP gyarados, so even if they came back, my fun would have been over if they managed to defeat me, but not the gyarados anyway.

I had a good time while it lasted!

So…

Moral of the story is…

I know I regretted not joining Instinct… and I still sort of do… but I think by doing this at 3 am, religiously sitting at a gym for the sole purpose of making someones life a living hell… doing it all for shits and giggles…

This has proven I’m on the correct team.

I’m an asshole.

My Legends of Tomorrow thoughts:
-My partner watched with me even though she only has a passing knowledge of the show via me and when I tried to answer questions she had I truly realized how ridiculous this show is (not that I didn’t know before, but explaining anything here is a fool’s errand. She does not like it because it makes no sense, but she likes that it makes me so happy)

-NOT ENOUGH AMAYA

-”The Time Turds” and also anything to do with The Time Idiots vs. anything done in a logical manner

-I need at least 5-10 fics about Sara working at that Bed Bath and Beyond knock off, one of which includes Sara explaining to Amaya what a Bed Bath and Beyond is (another must include the jobs Sara got fired from before that one)

-Nate and Ray have definitely touched butts in a moment of trying to determine if they were more than just bros, but it ended up being awkward (in like a fun and funny way), and they realized they are in fact just real good platonic best bros

-I am currently rewatching Alias and Victor Garber is giving me emotional whiplash. Where is Spy Daddy?

It felt as though time had slowed almost to the point where everything was frozen. My body and mind had no idea how to react to what just happened down in that cellar. I couldn’t think about anything right now, my thoughts all jumbled together creating a mess in my head. The only thing I could focus on was Luca and how he was safe.

“We need to go,” I heard Luca say from above me though he sounded muffled. His arms snaked through mine pulling me from the rain soaked ground lightly to my feet. “Ella, come on.”

No matter how hard I tired my feet wouldn’t move. “Luke,” I breathed out as my brain started to uncluttered itself. “Oh my God,” I whispered staring at my brother with wide eyes. “We need to go back. Luke’s down there. You don’t understand, Jai will…” Kill him.  

I began turning back to the cellar’s door just as Luca pulled me out of the ally. “We need to get help.” He told me then continued after taking in my uncertain facial expression. “It’s the only way we can help Luke, Ella.”

I nodded my head knowing that going back down into the cellar would only grant us a death wish. The only thing we could do was find a shop open near by but with the power out from the storm, every store we ran by to be closed limiting our options from slim to zero.

“There has to be a shop open somewhere.” I muttered to myself knowing that if we had to run back to our house to get help I might as well kiss Luke goodbye. 

As if my prayers had been answered, the convenience shop on the corner of the street had it’s flashing open sign on in it’s window. Luca and I pretty well ran down the door, wheezing and coughing in attempts to catch our breath from the run.

“Phone 911,” Luca wheezed. The man behind the counter hesitated as if we were pulling a practical joke on him before Luca reached over the counter and grabbed the phone dialing the number as quickly as he could. “Hi we need police and an ambulance. A man took my friend into captive and is threatening his life. Okay. Yes. On Queens St. in the old Geno’s cellar. Uh-huh. Okay.” And with that Luca hung up.

“So what now?” I asked him but he just shrugged.

“I guess we just pray to God that nothing happens to him.”

Luke’s P.O.V

I held back yet another scream as the knife dug into my thigh from Tyse’s powerful arms. 

“I have to saying, Hemmings.” Jai started. He was sat in a chair facing mine watching me as if this were a movie. “Sacrificing your own life for a girls trauma and pain, now that’s quite the love story.”

Through the pain I felt a smile tug at the ends of my mouth. “I hope you’re enjoying yourself over there.” I told him. “Because once my boys find out that you killed me it won’t be a party… at least not for you.”

He gave me a cold smirk. “What boys? You dropped out of my gang when you realized you could never lead it. What idiots would want you as their leader?”

“Who said anything about a gang?” I asked, his eyebrows shot up but I didn’t feel the need to elaborate. If I knew my three best friends as well as I think I do then I know that they aren’t going to let Jai just prance around town without payback.

“Again.” Jai called out to Tyse who sent the knife back into my thigh making me yell out in pain.

My eyes fell back on Jai noticing the small smile of defeat on his face. Like hell I would let him win. Even though I was in quite the mess up I knew this wouldn’t be the last of me, it just couldn’t.

“Again.” He repeated for the seventh time. Just before Tyse could bring the knife down into my thigh the sound of sirens from outside filled the cellar’s walls. Jai turned to his men. “You three,” He pointed to the three men who he wanted. “Go outside and distract the police, run around the block if you have to. Just do everything you can to keep them from coming down here.”

The three men left without a single objection as Jai turned his attention back to me and nodded at Tyse to continue. A scream lifted from the back of my throat louder than the others finding it harder each time to contain the noise. I lost track by now of how many times that knife had gone into my thigh before a loud bang came from the direction of the cellar door.

“Get down!” I heard someone yell praying and hoping that help was finally here.

“Well don’t just stand there,” Jai hissed at Tyse and Rowan. “Go stop the cops from getting in here.”

The two nodded racing towards the entrance of the cellar. Jai watched me with suspicion before getting up from his chair and walking past me. “Just so you know, Hemmings, this isn’t over yet.”

I heard his footsteps get quieter behind me then the sound of a door opening and closing sent me into thought. There was another way out.

I studied the ropes that had me tied down knowing I wouldn’t be able to break free of them by jiggling my arms around. With all of Jai’s men focused on fighting off the officers, I got to my feet with the chair still attached to me and limped my way into the wall trying to break the chair. It took me at least five tries before it broke and my restraints fell off. I quickly made my way over to where I heard Jai walk to in attempts to find the door. The cuts on my thigh made me wince every time I put pressure on my leg making it frustrating to walk.

Finally finding the old rotten door that camouflaged into the dirt walls of the cellar, I let myself squeeze through as I began my walk down the tight passage way. It was a 10 minute walk before I surfaced back above ground popping up near the malls entrance which wasn’t too far from Ella’s house.

I looked around the parking lot hoping to catch any clue that might lead me to Jai. But there was nothing. He was gone.

Ella’s P.O.V

My mom made us all hot chocolate that night as my entire family sat around the fireplace. None of us spoke a word not knowing what to say or do. You can’t prepare yourself for a situation like this and I could tell by my mom’s face that the sense of not knowing how to fix this was killing her.

“I think I’m gonna go to bed.” I told them starting to get to my feet.

“You’ve hardly touched your hot chocolate.” My father commented but I only shrugged.

“Guess I’m not that hungry.” I didn’t give them my regular good night kiss, instead I went straight to my room and curled up on my bed. I didn’t realize I was even crying until I felt a tear dampen my pillow case. 

Everything that’s happened since Luke came into my life has been a complete mess. From getting a concision, to remembering how to feel again, to today in the cellar. And looking back at everything now I think I finally understand why theses tears are coming. They’re not because of the messed up life I’m living or because I have no idea if Luke’s safe. I’m crying because I realize that there’s nothing in the world that I would have traded for the moments I spent with Luke. And that’s beautiful. They weren’t sad tears, they were happy ones. And maybe the reason why I was crying tears of joy in the saddest moment of my life was because my feelings are so fucked up right now that I don’t know how to function anymore.

Just then, I felt the bed dip beside me causing me to jump and turn to see who it was. A wave of relief and pure bliss washed over me as I brought Luke into my arms.

“What are you doing here?” I asked him pulling away.

“I had to make sure you were okay.” He told me. “By the way, you should move your room downstairs so I don’t have to climb up the side of the house to get into your window, especially when I’m injured.”

My eyes traveled down his body stopping at the darkened spot on the material of his jeans over his thigh. I ran to turn on my bedroom light before making my way back over to Luke to asses his injury. Opening my top drawer of my desk, I grabbed a pair of scissors and began cutting his jeans back to where the injury was.

“Oh my God,” I breathed out as I looked at the gashes feeling a bit queasy. “We need to get you to a hospital now.”

Before I could even take one step towards my door I felt Luke’s hand tug me back down on my bed. “I’ll go later,” He told me. “Right now I need to know that you’re okay.”

“I’m fine, Luke.” I rushed trying to get to the point. “Now lets go, you need stitches.”

“Ella please,” He took my hand in his intertwining our fingers. “Just put a cloth around it for now.”

I felt my jaw clench in argument but decided against forcing Luke to the hospital. As I went through my closet, I found an old t-shirt that I probably last wore in grade 5 before sitting back on my bed with Luke. I grabbed the rubbing alcohol that sat on my nightstand in for in case I cut myself too deep from the razor and rubbed some on the shirt and Luke’s wounds. He hissed out in pain while I apologized the entire time before securing the shirt around his thigh and tying it in a double knot.

“That’ll have to do.” I told him. Turning off the lights again and lifting the covers up for both Luke and I to get under. “Will you stay the night with me?”

“Of course.” He mumbled kissing the top of my head.

“And when I wake up, will you still be here?”

He looked me in the eyes before nodding his head. “Yes.”

I smiled up at him, lying my head on his chest careful not to hurt him. “Luke?” He hmmed in response letting me know I had to share his attention with tiredness. “Thank you, for everything you’ve done for me.”

I felt his arms tighten around me. “I love you, Ella.”

My heart fluttered at the words that left his mouth. “I love you too.”

Next Chapter Here

A/N: Finally a cute ending to a chapter instead of a cliff hanger lol :) so I hope you’re still enjoying it and I’m sorry for any horrible writing errors as it is 1am here and I’m so dead AHA but ya please give this a heart and reblog if you liked it! Thanks guys! 

Okay… Okay. So I was thinking a lot yesterday about how all the fans of the show reacted to the MSF - how everyone threw out or forgot all of their ideas about the “4, 8, 10” death and resurrection stuff. And I was thinking of how all of those reactions fit into the whole Jesus theory, too.

Jesus made it very clear to his disciples that he was going to die and he was going to be raised to life on the third day. But when he did die, not one of them seemed to recall what they had been told. When they saw him actually die they were all like “wow you really did die didn’t you/we didn’t really think you were gonna legit DIE/what’re we supposed to do now/you weren’t supposed to like die die were you?” - not those words exactly i’m sure, but, more or less… But they just couldn’t believe that he had actually died, and they just felt so hopeless and lost.

Before Beth died (but not really), weren’t the fans so sure of the whole clock theory and the fact that Beth was clearly becoming a much bigger character in the show? We might not have been told outrightly or anything, but the people involved in the show and all of the little signs that we all found all led us to believe that Beth was gonna become a big freakin’ deal in this season. Why were we so quick to forget about all that when this happened? Why were the people who were so sure of the “8 appear to die/10 come back” clock theory so quick to go “wow she really did die didn’t she/we didn’t think she was gonna legit DIE/etc” when it happened?

In Jesus’s case, the disciples were so shocked when he died, but if he hadn’t really died then his resurrection wouldn’t have been a miracle.

Sound familiar?

The writers had to get everyone to really believe that Beth Greene really died. We all took the “death” as a shocker, but I wholeheartedly believe that it had to be so shocking and [seemingly] absolute because they want it to be even more shocking when she is “raised to life.” These writers have been SO amazing up to this point, but we immediately started calling them “liars” and “the worst writers ever” after the MSF (and if I’m wrong in all of my certainty and she is actually dead for good, then they are all of those things, but I just can’t see that happening). [Assuming that we all are right in our theories and hopes] these writers put SO MUCH on the line in order to get the ultimate response to the resurrection. They are clearly invested enough in whatever they have planned to risk a HUGE chunk of their fans!

And to go back to the whole “Jesus made it very clear what was gonna go down” thing… In my post about the “NOT HAPPEN/LIVED” thing, I had circled the time in the video for the purpose of letting anyone who wanted to go look for it themselves know when in the episode to look for it; however, fangirl-of-many-fandoms asked me if there was any significance to it, and I decided that I would look into it when I got a chance. I told my mom (who is just as invested in all of these theories as my sister and I are) about it, and, without letting me know she was doing it, she started searching through chapter 17’s in the Gospels (considering those are the books that are most relevant to what we’re dealing with here) and in Matthew 17 she found a bit where Jesus tells his disciples that he will be killed and on the third day be raised to life. I looked into it more and tried to make as much sense as I could out of that chapter and the time in the episode. The “NOT HAPPEN/LIVED” is only visible, as a whole, from like 17:14-17:17, and that didn’t prove useful. The whole shot in which the words appear in, however, is 17:10-17:20. Verses 10-20 are not really relevant either which made me a bit discouraged. [10-13 could be seen as at least a little substantial if you look at Hershel as the John the Baptist in all of this] BUT! I decided to look at the verses right before and right after the section indicated, and it was surprisingly relevant.

Verse 9:  ’As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus instructed them, “Don’t tell anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.”

Verses 22-23 (verse 21 is omitted in the version I looked at):  ’When they came together in Galilee, he said to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill him, and on the third day he will be raised to life.” And the disciples were filled with grief.’

I know that that is grasping at straws at its finest, but it is just so weird…

Personally, I don’t believe in coincidences. But if this is just a coincidence, then it is the most coincidental coincidence that ever coincidenced.

anonymous asked:

Hi I've been away for a few days, and I just wondering if you could update me on any Larry moments that occurred during the summertime ball and Cardiff shows? I totally understand if not, but thanks anyway!! :D

Sure thing, babe!

CARDIFF SHOW ONE

Formation during WMYB - THIS RIGHT HERE is the best moment of WWA and OTRA. So, as you can see, our ship is lost and not in the correct position for the song. But, never fear, because the compass is always there to steer him, and gestures as if to say “c’mon, love.” Harry immediately scurries over there as fast as his long Bambi legs can take him, and proceeds to leave absolutely zero space in between the two of them so that we got THIS amazing photograph. Then you can see Louis’ fondly or smugly smile as if to say, “yup, I love this little popstar. He listens so well. I’ll reward him later.” Amazing. Beautiful. 10/10. Would recommend seeing it 32 times in theaters, or at least as many times as your budget allows.

Next to You during You & I - I’m loving that their mic stands are now arranged so Harry and Louis are next to each other for the ballads. Perfect position for serenading, as Louis shows us in this exhibit, with a very, very subtle glance at Harry during “they never tried like us.”

SUMMERTIME BALL

Arrivals - As you can see here, we got Next to You during the arrivals. We got a repeat of the night before with the arm touch! However, we have to also mention their clothes. Louis, here, is wearing YSL. Yes. He’s wearing YSL, the brand Harry is a poster child for. Oh, but, there’s more. Harry’s wearing Louis Vuitton. See what they did there? Also, doesn’t Harry’s shirt look like the zig zag of Charlie Brown’s?

Next to You interview - Well, it’s not really an interview. But, we got Next to You in a couple of vines and snapchats of the boys shaking their asses.

Interview banter - How I have missed them just bantering back and forth. Anyway, in this interview, they were asked who the most famous person they took a selfie with was. Harry’s fumbling for an answer, and Louis tells him to “pull one out of the bag” and “just do it.” Harry proceeds to answer a Prince in Dubai.

Last member to be married - In the same interview, the boys were asked who they thought the last member to get married would be. Liam points a thumb over at Harry and Louis and says “this pair.” Harry and Louis look offended and then Louis clarifies, “us two?” while nodding over to Harry. Liam then points over at Niall, and interviewer as “Louis and Niall?” Then Louis says “me and Niall? I don’t know.” Liam tries to cover it up by talking about how the both of them go out a lot. Lima Bean, you’ve upset the frog and now you’ll have to deal with the wrath of the hedgehog. Good luck, pal.

Power couple strut - During the show, we got this beautiful power couple walk.

Sugarscape - It’s possible that one of Harry’s friends posted a picture of Harry and Louis with a heart caption on the Sugarscape Instagram. You can see more about that here.

CARDIFF SHOW TWO

Harry during the show - He was wild. I mean, watch this. And he was moaning and having the crowd shout “yeah, baby” and… something had gotten into him. (Likely because Louis hadn’t yet that day, but, you know.) I’m sure they took care of that the second they got off stage.

Next to You & obvious serenading during Little Things - We all know Harry goes out of his way to look at Louis during Little Things, but now it’s really easy for him to do so, and he definitely took advantage of it. I mean. A flashing neon sign is more subtle than this.

Next to You during You & I - We got a repeat of the first show in Cardiff, where Louis yet again turns to look at Harry during “they never tried like us.” This was a lot less subtle. Maybe we didn’t make a big enough fuss the first time. Sorry, Lou. 

WMYB formation - Harry was next to Louis again, again very close together.

Playing with a ball on stage - I don’t know if this is really a “moment,” but I’m so used to being starved of Larry interactions that I’ll include it. Harry’s trying to kick a beach ball, Louis kicks and misses, and then Harry kicks it. Amazing how, if this would have happened in WWA, we would have talked about it for two weeks. Yet, now we have all these other amazing things!!

I may have forgotten a couple of things, but I tried to get as much as I could! Basically, there is a WHOLE lot of Next to You now, especially during the concerts. They’re slowly but surely interacting in public again as well. I feel like we’ve gotten more Larry moments in 72 hours than we would for months at a time during 2014, so this is kinda sorta really awesome.

I felt like doodling a little Sly in a style I used a few months ago. So I did. eue

(Also; played on the Creature server for hours today only to return later and die because of lag - sending me back to a bunch of zombies I couldn’t hit - resulting in me losing everything I owned, and then getting disconnected every time I tried to get it back for 10 minutes before I gave up… xD Oh well, at least I planted a whole bunch of wheat in someone’s farm for them~)

iKON as Students

Hanbin: Acts all hip hop and cool then trips over his own foot during gym classes because he just can’t with sports, he is also the member who doodles on other people’s books and act all philosophical when teacher asks a question, gorilla-runs to the cafeteria and blocks the whole entrance (super competitive) just so he can be first to get food, also first to run out of campus once the end-of-school bell rings

Bobby: The typical high-school popular basketballer, other than that he also loves to gym (if he isn’t dozing off in class he’s probably in the gym), girls swoon over and flock towards him, he is extremely popular and he knows and does many things to please them even further, other boys on campus hates him because he gets all the girls, can’t really study but no one cares because he’s hot

Jinhwan: Quiet and meticulous student in class, easy to approach as acquaintance but hard to get close to, secretly aces his exams but nobody knows because he does not brag, always the most rational student, great at sports and basketball coach told him he’d have him on his team if he was a bit taller, those kind of kid that you will see sitting underneath the big tree eating an apple interacting with nature and read storybooks until the school closes

Yunhyeong: The other more popular boy in school, always a sweetheart and takes good care of anyone around him, tries his best in all his classes, never brags and is always contented with what he has, always a happy pill smiling at everyone when he walks into school, also the one who is basically all the cafeteria vendors favourite boy because he is so angelic and polite

Junhoe: Thinks he is popular but he is not, always commenting things like ‘this module is totally made for me’ but does only okay in the end, does not copy any notes in class because he feels his brain can remember them all, always fighting with Hanbin for the first to be at the cafeteria, demands for more food because he claims he is a growing handsome boy, very proud of his skills at foot volleyball, always very smug, teachers are always cautious of him because if they compliment him his self esteem explodes and that’s it, nothing else goes in anymore

Donghyuk: The well-known high flyer, perfectionist, not only straight ‘A’s but even scoring for Conduct and Leadership. Always Class Prefect since elementary school, answers all the teachers’ questions in class, submits 50000 words write-up research homework the day after the teacher issues it, gets at least 10 medals and plaques every year, but surprisingly has a great deal of male friends

Chanwoo: Always a bit blur in school but tries his very best to catch up, the secret angel who sweeps the cafeteria floor every morning before any cleaners reach the school, always very nice and shy but opens up a lot more after you get to know him, young but very intellectual, super kind and cute, those shy girls secretly crush on him
