i'm actually really surprised by how much i loved this film

anonymous asked:

what movies would the RFA take MC to see? sorry if it's a weird request Q_Q

Author’s note: Not a weird request!! I just finished Kimi no na wa and it killed me ♥ do you guys have any favorite movies?? because I need new ones to watch ANY GENRE IS FINE

Yoosung

  • A ROM COM, 100%
  • Of course, he uses you as an excuse when people ask him why he’s watching something “so girly” 
  • Yoosung had been waiting for this movie premiere for months
  • He bought his tickets in advance, came early to get a good spot in line, and had blocked all spoilers from his phone you had even agreed to come along with him!!
  • Everything was going PERFECTLY 
  • Until he saw one of his classmates waiting outside the same movie theatre
  • Quickly, he tried to turn away, but it was too late
  • “Hey, Yoosung!! Whatcha doing in line waiting for a chick flick??”
  • “Uhhh, w-well,” he desperately looked around, “MC really wanted to see this one!”
  • “Your girl’s got you whipped, huh?”
  • “…Whipped?”
  • You overheard the conversation as you came back from the bathroom
  • Walking closer to the two, you gave the stranger a passive aggressive smile, “Come on, Yoosung, let’s go.”
  • You dragged him away from his classmate
  • “Why didn’t you just tell him you wanted to see this movie yourself?”
  • He scratched the back of his neck, “I-I didn’t want to sound lame…”
  • “Hey,” you stopped and turned toward him, “If you were lame, you would have never scored such a cute girlfriend like me!”
  • You twirled around and gave him a wink
  • He chuckled and grabbed your wrist, pulling you in for a kiss
  • “I love you.”
  • “Right back at you… now, come on, we don’t want to be late for my movie!” 

Zen

  • Normally he would have taken you to one of his movies
  • BUT
  • there was a something even better out
  • “Are you gonna tell me what we’re seeing??”
  • Nope! It’s a surprise!!”
  • You sighed and continued to cover your eyes with your hands
  • he guided you to a chair and you felt him sit next to you
  • “Okay, you can look now!!” 
  • you glanced up at the bright title screen and oh my god
  • “How he came to be: The story of Zen”
  • “You took me to a documentary about YOURSELF???”
  • “…Yeah.”
  • You tried to act annoyed, but your smile betrayed you
  • “We can go see-”
  • “No,” you rested your head on his shoulder, “I’m good here.”

Jaehee

  • If Jaehee doesn’t choose a Zen movie then assume she’s been kidnapped and replaced with a clone
  • Seriously, the only time she’ll take a break from work is to watch movies starring the white haired narcissist
  • There’s this shirt she wears EVERY TIME the two of you go to and see one of his films
  • “Aren’t you embarrassed wearing a shirt with one of your friends’ faces on it?”
  • “Embarrassed? No. I’m honored that I get to express my fondness of Zen’s artistic-”
  • Blah, blah, blah, let’s just go see the movie so we can get home.”
  • “…Are you jealous?”
  • “W-what? No!”
  • She slipped her hand into yours
  • “Good, because I love way more than some silly movie.”

 Jumin

  • THIS LITTLE PRETENTIOUS PRICK TOOK YOU TO SOME HIGH END FOREIGN FILM you don’t even know what language it’s in
  • And on top of that, the entire movie was in B&W
  • So could Jumin blame you for falling asleep????
  • When it ended he looked over to see if you enjoyed it
  • “MC?”
  • “…”
  • “MC!!?”
  • “H-Huh? Oh, it’s over! What a great movie!!”
  • You stood up and stretched, covering your mouth to hide a yawn
  • He smirked, standing up next to you
  • “Oh, you thought so?”
  • Jumin leaned in closer to you
  • “What did you think about the scene with the flock of flamingos?”
  • “It was so moving, I almost cried!!”
  • “Hmm, that’s strange; there weren’t any flamingos in the entire movie.”
  • You looked away, “…I may have fallen asleep.”
  • “Uh-huh, I saw.”
  • He put his arm around your shoulder, “That’s okay, you didn’t miss much. It was pretty boring.”
  • You rolled your eyes and leaned into him
  • “Next time, I pick the movie.”

 707

  • He chose a scary movie without hesitation
  • whY DOES HE INSIST ON TORTURING YOU
  • and when you get home you can BET YOUR ASS he’ll try to scare you
  • “MC, I think I just saw something outside!”
  • “Yeah, right.”
  • “No seriously-”
  • CRASH
  • “EVERY MAN FOR THEMSELVES!!!”
  • He watched as you ran down the hall and into the bedroom
  • Seven had to hold onto a wall he waS LAUGHING SO HARD
  • “…I still don’t approve of this.”
  • Once he caught his breath, he turned around
  • “Thanks, Saeran, she was SO scared!!”
  • Seven turned to look down the hall again
  • “…Actually, I think I should go check on her.”
  • Saeran watched his brother wipe away another tear and slowly make his way down to his bedroom
  • He rolled his eyes and walked into the kitchen
  • He peaked his head into the fridge to find something to eat
  • “I guess Saeyoung hasn’t realized MC knew he was going to try and scare her.”

Earlier that day

“Hey, Saeran, wait up!!”

He was on his way outside when he heard his brother’s girlfriend call out.

“What do you need?”

MC ran over to the twin and leaned in close, lowering her voice.

“So, tonight, Seven and I are going to see a scary movie, and I know that every time I see one with him, he tries to prank me when we get back home…”

“This is true.”

“And I was wondering if you would be willing to help me exact some revenge on him. It won’t be-”

“I’m in.”

“But-”

“You had me at revenge. Just text me the details, I’m going for a run.”

Saeran turned back around and left, a smile plastered on his face.”

  • He felt that same smile creep back on his face as he thought of what MC had showed him
  • “ I wonder if she finished setting up-”
  • “WHAT THE HELL, MC??”
  • “-her other prank.”

Behind the Scenes of Planet of the Dead - Part Three

Excerpts from “The Doctor’s Tale” by David Tennant, as told to Benjamin Cook in DWM (#407)

Coming back this year, for these Specials, felt a bit like returning to the day job after a summer holiday doing something else. I was worried that it might take a while to get back into it, because this is the longest break that I’ve had between bouts. Is it eight, nine months [since filming The Next Doctor, in April 2008]? Yes, it is. I went off and did this play [the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Hamlet], which I knew was going to be tough - and proved to be - but also was challenging and exciting, something I’m proud to have done. But the level of scrutiny that it got was surprising, and I’m sure that’s because of Doctor Who. It’s been a constant reminder that I’m part of it and that I’m coming back to it. It’s never felt like I’m that far away from it.

At the readthrough for Planet of the Dead, I found it quite tricky to get into the mindset again. I actually felt that I couldn’t remember the Doctor’s voice. But getting on set, putting on the costume and being surrounded by everyone, is like slipping back into something very familiar. It’s like coming home… he says, basking in the sun in Dubai! A welcome return, really. Most of the crew is back. Yeah, it’s the same team. But obviously none of the other actors are back… well, yet.

I don’t think the break has altered my feelings towards leaving after these Specials. In a way, it was sort of the beginning of the end. I got out of the routine of being here, which is, of course, what’s got to happen in a few weeks’ time. Then this will be gone for me. It’s good to remember that there’s a world outside the structure of a nine-month shooting schedule, and I still think I’ve made the right decision. The break didn’t make me regret it, but it did remind me how much I’ll miss Doctor Who and how much fun it is here. It’s made me more appreciative that this is my last stint and I’ve really got to enjoy every minute of it. This show is fun, and it always has been, and I will miss that - but it’s nice to leave while I still feel that way, or I’ll still be here when I’m 80.

I love thinking about the Mchanzo relationship

Like, while Hanzo complains that McCree’s coffee is disgusting, he makes a cup for Jesse every morning at the same time as his tea because he knows his boyfriend likes drinking it so he’ll humor him

And when Hanzo has a cold, Jesse returns the favor and makes Hanzo the tea he likes and gives him blankets and makes sure he doesn’t over-exert himself by going out and doing target practice and Jesse will try to make Hanzo comfort food, but will end up failing and has Reinhardt cook it instead

And when Jesse takes off his prosthetic arm to take a bath or a long shower, Hanzo will clean it if he’s nearby and knows his boyfriend isn’t using it. early on in their relationship, Jesse started realizing that somebody was cleaning his arm, and while Hanzo never said anything about it Jesse knew it was his boyfriend and is always really happy when it happens

Jesse on the other hand is always making Hanzo take off his legs so he won’t get injuries from keeping them on, and when Hanzo is sleeping, if Jesse is still awake he’ll tinker with them to repair any damage and clean them up just like Hanzo does for him because he knows his boyfriend hates taking them off around other people

And they have their culture shock moments, like when Hanzo is shocked that Jesse never owned a rice cooker in his life, and when Jesse is horrified that Hanzo had never been exposed to things like fried chicken and barbeque ribs, because for both of them what the other had never had was a staple in their life that they constantly had.

And when it’s Hanzo’s turn to cook dinner for the group, nobody but McCree is allowed in the kitchen because Hanzo is so used to the rolling rumble of Jesse’s voice that it no longer annoys him while he’s trying to get a good meal cooked for everybody. His boyfriend’s voice is soothing as he tries to get things done before dinner, and sometimes in quiet moments McCree will come up behind Hanzo and just hold him and Hanzo will lean back into Jesse’s serape and smile until he’s up and running again, scrambling to be cook. Hanzo actually cooks twice in a rotation, because he takes his boyfriend’s turn due to the fact he has only seen Jesse fail at cooking. Nobody objects because they think it’s really cute, although Hana did end up losing a camera because she tried to film Hanzo and McCree. Now nobody so much as walks past the kitchen while Jesse or Hanzo is looking.

My thought is all of the personal rooms have an automatic lock on them along with a keypad that you punch a code into, and everyone gets a spare key if they break the first one. McCree pretended that he broke his key on accident to a disbelieving Mercy, but she gives him the spare anyways because she’s seen Jesse McCree and Hanzo Shimada looking at each other across the briefing table and sitting next to each other at dinner, and how Jesse can put his hand on Hanzo’s shoulder where as almost everyone else can’t brush against the archer. To satisfy her curiosity, Angela watches from around a corner as Hanzo fumbles with the keypad, entering the correct code before sticking in the key and opening McCree’s door, pulling it shut behind him with only a soft click. The next day Mercy pulls aside Jesse after breakfast and tells him that he could have told her and smiles as the southerner’s face flushes a deep red and he scurries away.

When McCree wakes up in the middle of the night, he always checks on Hanzo, because sometimes he’ll wake up to his boyfriend talking in his sleep and moving around, and sometimes Hanzo isn’t next to him because he’s having a panic attack across the room, so Jesse is used to checking up on Hanzo when he wakes up and making sure he’s doing okay, and if his boyfriend isn’t okay Jesse wakes him up or calms him down, or sometimes both. Hanzo does the same for Jesse, and although he’ll never admit it, if he wakes up and Jesse isn’t having a nightmare, he kisses his forehead before snuggling back up to the cowboy. Jesse however knows this because once he was almost asleep before he felt Hanzo’s lips on his forehead. It took all of his effort to not smile like an idiot when he was supposed to be sleeping.

McCree has tens of names that he calls Hanzo, ranging from ‘babe’ to ‘honeybee’ and plenty of other things as well, where Hanzo just calls Jesse ‘anata’ from time to time, and while McCree at first is slightly disappointed at the fact that Hanzo only calls him one thing, he finds out from Genji that anata is basically ‘darling’. And then Jesse starts peppering it in with his other nicknames for his boyfriend, just to see Hanzo flush red as he realizes Jesse knows what anata means. From that point on, Hanzo tended to use the term about half of the time he could use Jesse’s name while talking to him and it makes McCree way too happy, and Hanzo is privately very happy every time Jesse uses the term.

During missions, Hanzo and McCree are always near each other, and Hanzo lovingly picks off all the enemies flanking Jesse, and sometimes the southerner will glance around and flash a smile at his boyfriend, even if he can only see part of him. Once, McCree returned the favor by shooting another sniper’s trigger hand before he could shoot at Hanzo. When that mission was over, McCree received a very passionate kiss from his boyfriend. He didn’t know exactly why but he didn’t really care, because Hanzo was still alive and well.

After missions, Hanzo can usually be found on Jesse’s back as McCree carries him through the halls, talking to Jesse casually as his chin rests in the cowboy’s hair, his fingers running through the wild brown hair of his boyfriend. Sometimes Hanzo will kiss Jesse’s forehead and appreciate being temporarily taller, before they find somewhere where they can just enjoy each other’s company without being bothered.

Sometimes Jesse will find a fresh bottle of bourbon where he keeps his alcohol the day after he runs out. Hanzo will occasionally find a bottle of sake outside his room, always after a night where he shared the last of a bottle with McCree. The first time it happened with McCree, the bottle was outside his door, and he almost knocked it over before he saw it and grabbed it. Both of them instantly knew the first time who had done it, but they didn’t talk about it, because each figured that if the other didn’t bring it up they didn’t want to talk about it.

Hanzo was the first to say I love you, right before they tried to sleep, without really thinking about it because he had been saying it internally for weeks, but when the words left his lips he was scared that Jesse would reject him. Jesse paused for a moment in slight surprise, before he pressed up against Hanzo and murmured that he loved him too. And Hanzo just relaxed into McCree’s chest, a content smile on his face before they both fell asleep. From then on, McCree would sometimes just walk up behind the Shimada and hug him and ell him he loved him, and every single time Hanzo would internally melt into a puddle and murmur that he loved McCree back.

thank you for sitting through a fuckton of fluff enjoy your day

anonymous asked:

hey! first off, i love your acting posts, thank you for taking time to write those! one thing i'm super curious about is how much of what we see in skam is scripted and how much is improvised, so i was wondering, are there any scenes that stand out to you (particularly in season 3 but in the other two as well) as probably improvised? also, in your experience, how much is the body language between characters usually scripted/directed and how much is it left to the actors?

AH MAN ANON, this is such a good question. First off, thank you for the love! It may not seem like it but they usually take around 2-3  hours to write (intense rewatching is crucial) haha, so it’s nice to hear you like them! <3 

Now, onto your question. It’s pretty difficult to know for sure when there’s improvising involved. As a stage actress, improvising is a skill you really need to have because on stage you have no second chances: if you or someone else messes up, forgets a line, you have to fix it right then and there and come back around to the intended scene. As a television series, SKAM has the advantage of editing and reshooting so improvising lines is not necessarily needed. Usually scripts just say the lines and a bare minimum of the actions, so that the actors can fill it in themselves. However, the script Julie posted on New Year’s Eve is quite.. detailed in actions, I think (mentioning that Even pushes back Isak’s fringe, for example, is not something I’ve seen in scripts before. That’s usually up to the actors). But who knows whether that is comparable to the other scripts. However, filming does require pre-existing knowledge on how people are going to move around, so if you improvise you need to keep it within the camera frame.

What I think are noticeable improvised moments are usually the comedic ones; comedic acting requires a quick wit and impeccable timing. So you need to give that a bit of your flair and you need to surprise your actors, so that they’ll actually laugh instead of fake-laugh. And SKAM has some strong actors in that regard; Ina Svenningdal and David Sjoholt are stand outs for me. Which is why one of the moments that I think is truly improvised is when David suddenly hugs Henrik in ‘Dette er Even’. 

Henrik had his hand out already when he suddenly got hugged, and it seems like he’s cracking up here. Tarjei is also already moving on with the scene since he’s already getting his phone out of his pocket. It’s safe to say that it’s something David decided to do suddenly: and this kind of improvising is nice, since as a director you get surprised and sometimes it’s really the thing you needed to make a scene. The last few moments of the boy squad after that dancing chicks scene, where Magnus talks about his dream about Vilde, is I think another one that shows improvisation from all the guys since they genuinely seem to laugh. (and making your laughing seem genuine is hard as hell! I think a bit of Tarjei shines through when he cracks up so hard). Other moments might be in 2.10 and 5.10 when music (the message and i’m not in love) is playing over Isak and Even interacting; you just need some material to fill in those moments so what better way than just to film your actors doing some stuff and making each other laugh.

Body language is even harder to say; I think that there is a certain amount of directions on what to do. But since Julie writes and directs, she does have the opportunity to listen what the actors want to do with the scenes. And if certain things feel unnatural to how they would act, she probably would work with them to change things around. If, once again, you want your scenes to seem genuine, you need to have some faith in what your actors are doing with your material (I have personally had some horrible experiences with directors who did not want to listen to actors’ input and that creates a fairly unsafe environment for the actors. I certainly do not see Julie as being that kind of director, from what I’ve read about her).

Basically, it’s hard to know for sure. I could probably find some other moments, but I’ll leave you with these as this ask is getting rather long. I hope I’ve answered your question! If you have any other questions or a follow up question, please do not hesitate to ask! <3

  • He films himself finding the ring
  • He randomly turns the camera on, ready to tell his viewers that he didn’t have any luck finding anything yet
  • But then you just see his eyes light up and he’s all excited
  • He calls Jimin over and is like dude this is it, I found it holy shit
  • Jimin’s equally as excited since they’d been looking for like a week or two
  • And Jimin’s been able to watch your relationship develop from barely being able to say hi to each other without getting all smiley to being able to helping Taehyung find a ring to propose to you with
  • The next clip is tae looking all nic E in a suit and he’s like mumbling about how he has no fucking idea on how to tie a tie
  • He’s rushing around bc he’s two minutes late and that isn’t okay with him
  • He says goodbye to the camera and it just kinda fades to black
  • At the very end of the video, this lil message pops up
  • “Btw, I’m engaged now. My love said yes”
  • Youtuber!Tae is just a total sweetheart who loves his subscribers so so much and would do anything to make them smile

anonymous asked:

in the anabasis verse, how do anakin and padme fit together as people? what do they actually like about each other? i get the feeling you're constructing a much healthier relationship than canon; how does that work out? you always have the best meta about how people work as people, as directly opposed to george lucas's complete lack of comprehension of how real life human emotions work (exhibit a: "my heart is beating... hoping that kiss will not become a scar") and i'm really curious!

Hey now, be fair! Anakin’s dreadful lines in canon would actually work really well…if they were just delivered in a completely different tone.

Like, “My heart is beating… hoping that kiss will not become a scar” as said in the film is painfully melodramatic and ridiculous. But the same line delivered deadpan? Hilarious. Or said with dramatic flair while throwing a hand over his brow and swooning backward over the arm of the couch? Amazing.

What I’m saying is the dialogue as is actually could have been really cute and funny if it just…didn’t take itself seriously. You missed such an opportunity there, George.

tl;dr: Let Anakin be a dweeb.

But I’m supposed to be talking about Anabasis. And as this is probably gonna get long, here’s a cut.

Kylo Ren and Microexpression: More proof that Reylo is canon

(Inspired by this post  and the book Blink by Malcolm Gladwell)

(I found this little gem halfway through writing this meta and @ms-qualia​ absolutely nailed it.  Great preface for this and required reading for the whole fandom.)

With all these glorious HD gifs of our whiny space prince Kylo Ren, I want to talk about microexpression.  And so I shall.

I think it’s safe to say that Adam Driver is the modern king of faking microexpression, and his performance as Kylo Ren in the jewel in his crown.  His character takes emoting to another level; everthing on his face and every expression in his eyes seems meticulously choreographed for the scene.  Microexpression is certainly one of the most important (and most subtle) aspects of Kylo Ren.  Lucky for us, microexpression seems to be Adam’s specialty.

But what does this mean for Reylo?

Well I’ll tell you.

“A microexpression is a brief, involuntary facial expression shown on the face of humans according to emotions experienced. They usually occur in high-stakes situations, where people have something to lose or gain. Microexpressions occur when a person is consciously trying to conceal all signs of how they are feeling, or when a person does not consciously know how they are feeling. Unlike regular facial expressions, it is difficult/impossible to hide microexpression reactions. Microexpressions cannot be controlled as they happen in a fraction of a second…not all of which are encoded in facial muscles.”


-Wikipedia, microexpression

(emphasis added)

There is so much in here but there’s only a few things we really need.
Let’s start with involuntary.  So much about Kylo Ren’s character shows us that he’s out of control– his tantrums, his obsession with Rey– but this becomes even more pronounced when he takes off the mask. 

The average person shows a microexpression fairly frequently, but Kylo Ren’s face is constantly jumping from one tiny emotion to the next.  Without a word, he shows us just how unstable Kylo Ren feels, and by extension, just how unstable Kylo Ren will act.

Viewers of “The Force Awakens” came away with some some very clear but seemingly out-of-place ideas about the movie, and it’s not initially obvious why.  Times’s description of a “sexual energy” between Rey and Kylo Ren is the best example.  This is the ‘micro’ in microexpression.  Those skilled in imitating microexpression can get us to see and feel and understand things about the film and its characters without us ever knowing why.  Of course, body language is important, but so much of what we perceive comes down to the face.  In this case, Adam Driver’s face.

The next point here is that microexpressions appear “in high stakes situations…when a person does not consciously know how they are feeling.”  This is unsurprising for a man being “torn apart.”  Kylo Ren has peers he distrusts, a family he scorns, an order that he renounced and destroyed– and now he works under a master that he knows is just using him as a temporary tool.  His whole life is a high-stakes situation.  He feels huge inner conflict, and this conflict is clearly shown in his face.  The interrogation scene and the bridge scene in particular are filled with so many tiny flickers of emotion in Kylo Ren, and they serve their purpose perfectly.  He doesn’t know what he’s doing.  He doesn’t know what he’s feeling.  He is truly being torn apart.  We can see it, although we don’t immediately know that we’re seeing it.  That’s the beauty in this performance. Even for all its subtleties you can’t miss the effect.

Now you’re probably still wondering about Reylo.  Don’t worry.  Here it comes.

From the interrogation scene on, Adam Driver establishes Kylo Ren as extremely emotional and extremely volatile.  His expressions are constantly in motion, his face wonderfully dynamic.   But there is a moment where that all comes to rest.  This moment:

This is the moment where (at least some) of his inner conflict settles.  He sees Rey holding the lightsaber that once belonged to him, and things fall into place.  There’s no flash of anger, no tears, no fluttering eyebrows.  This is the most steady expression we get from Kylo Ren in the entire film.  There’s awe, surprise, admiration– but there’s no microexpression.

The entire Star Wars franchise is nothing if not an exploration of contrast.  Light and dark.  Truth and lies.  Weak and strong.  It’s all over the movies, and it shows up again here.  Kylo Ren has been jumping from sad puppy eyes to  wolf-like snarl to haughty prince, and then suddenly– it stops.  He goes from a hundred miles and hour to a dead stop in an instant.  But why?  

One word.  Rey.

No microexpression means that Kylo Ren doesn’t feel the pressure of high stakes.  Now I’m definitely not trying to say that a lightsaber duel isn’t dangerous, but in that moment some of his fear is gone. No microexpression means that he isn’t trying to hide his feelings.  It means that he isn’t confused about what his feelings are. 

When he looks at Rey he isn’t hiding his face anymore– he knows exactly how he feels when he looks at her.

When he looks at Rey, his conflict is gone.

The look on Kylo Ren’s face when he looks at Rey isn’t a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it, fration of a second expression.  It’s long and lingering.  It’s obvious.  It’s love.
In whatever form it may be, this is a look of love.  The man with a mask finally feels something he isn’t trying to hide, and he lets his face speak for him.

RAE’S MONSTA X EXPERIENCE

Hey guys! So this is a post about my experience meeting MonstaX in Singapore! I’m going to be posting gifs and all that so I apologise in advance for the very long post! THERE ARE SOME THAT ARE SAVE-WORTHY! Enjoy reading!

AIRPORT 

I would like to start this post off from the very beginning which is of course, me welcoming the boys at the airport. I didn’t get to sleep the entire night because I got home late and saw no point in sleeping since their flight landed really early so I was pretty much exhausted. When I got to the airport, I managed to find a nice spot right in front of the doors they were coming out from thanks to this nice girl who let me stand beside her. Can I just say how proud I am of Monbebes because while waiting, we were greeting the people coming out of the luggage section with nice words like “good morning” and “have a nice day”. 

Anyway, the boys came out late and according to some people who came out, they were having a drink at Starbucks and chilling in the lounge. (I can’t confirm this information because I wasn’t in there obviously.) The wait was worth it of course! 

Minhyuk came out first with a bright smile on his face, waving to the fans waiting outside. Changkyun followed behind with his earphones plugged in and unfortunately, didn’t pay my side much attention. Wonho was the third to exit and took the fan gift my friend prepared before giving me a high five (to the best of his ability because he was holding something). Kihyun and Jooheon followed them and waved to all of us. Shownu then exited and he gave me a high five so I was real excited about getting two high fives in less than a minute! Hyungwon was the last to come out but he was being real adorable and waving to us all!

FAN MEET 

When I arrived at the venue, there were so many things happening and it really hit me that I was about to see my boys in person. People were handing out freebies, giving out banners for fan projects and selling merchandise. Let’s just say that I went home with a bag full of things… Anyway, I entered the hall and got to my seat, which wasn’t a great one because it was a last minute ticket a fan site couldn’t use but I’m still grateful.

The show started off with a bang and even though this is a MonstaX focused post, I’d like to commend Sistar for their stunning vocals and amazing performance quality. 

Fan site master Here, My dear sat beside me and I was helping her look out for guards while she took photos. She was thankful so she gave me this cute Hyungwon card and also tweeted me! 

When the boys came out, I was just sitting there and feeling very happy and thankful. As someone who has been following them since the start of ‘No Mercy’, I was so happy to be able to watch and listen to them in person. I’m grateful that I’m given this opportunity to walk them through this journey filled with tears, laughter and success so I got really emotional. 

Near the last few songs, fans started rushing to the front so I made my way there too. I was lucky enough to get a spot right at the front so I was in the first row! The amazing things start happening here and I’ll just be listing down the moments that happened!

1) Kihyun occasionally rapping to Jooheon’s part in ‘Rush’ and being adorable.

2) Shownu jumping off the stage to interact with fans and body waving to get to where I am. 

When we made eye contact, I thought he was just going to keep walking but he tilted his head to the side and did that thing with his eyebrows.

Then leaning closer to me to give a high five/handshake thing. HE WAS SO CLOSE I SWEAR I COULD SEE HIS SWEAT. 

3) Changkyun and Jooheon stopping in front of where I was to give people high fives! The former was holding onto a girl’s hand while performing and I’m so happy for her omg.

3) Wonho came over to where I was! 

I also got lucky because my boy noticed me.

THEN HE WALKED OVER AND SANG TO ME MY LIFE IS COMPLETE.

4) Here’s a gif of our boys performing ‘Rush’ 

5) Jooheon being hot and ruining lives.  

6) Minhyuk being adorable, crossing his arms and moving side to side + Jooheon ruining lives part two.

5) Wonho killing us all during ‘Hero’ 

6) Minhyuk not following the choreography and falling backwards instead of forward. He’s such a cute lil bean help us all. 

7) Shownu because I like Shownu 

8) More of ‘Hero’ 

9) ‘Hero’ dance break!

10) The moment I made eye contact with Changkyun, I pulled a funny face at him and I’m proud of how much of a derp I can be because it made him laugh. I actually made Changkyun laugh guys asdfghjkl

11) Being caught in the act by Joohoney so he laughed at me as well and gave me a small wave pft. I WANT TO FIGHT THEM BOTH I’M MAD MHM

12) Grandpa Changkyun’s delayed reaction (poor bub must be tired) + Jooheon’s heart!

13) Minhyuk the cutest shooting hearts at the fans! 

14) Wonho feeling bad for stealing my heart so he’s sending one back :”)

15) The boys sitting at the edge of the stage for a group photo!

I’m the one in the choker! I’m so sorry I look like a turd hahaha

HIGH FIVE SESSION 

Okay so I had this genius plan where I made a box disguised as a fan board, put my phone in it and placed it on my head. The following gifs are from the video I managed to film. I’m generally chill with idols so this video was actually really stable. 

WONHO

He was already waiting for me before I finished my high five with Bora so imagine how surprised I was to look him in the eyes. I told him “Thank you for being born.” To that, he smiled and thanked me twice! He also wiggled my hands when we linked fingers and that was absolutely adorable. 

KIHYUN

This lil ball of sunshine smiled so brightly I forgot I was indoors and not out in the sun. I said to him “Your voice is amazing!” (rough translation because that’s what I intended to say? I said “좋다요”) I think Kihyun got shy because he was just looking down and smiling? HIS DIMPLES MADE AN APPEARANCE AND I THINK I DIED THREE TIMES. 

MINHYUK

This angel was all smiles when I got to him and I told him “Minhyuk, please be happy!” He’s always the bright one of the group and I really hope that my angel will never get hurt. 

CHANGKYUN

I’m real mad at the fact that my phone decided to fail on me when I reached Changkyun? When he leaned closer to high five me, I automatically bowed my head but my phone fell so I ended up saying “Thank you I.M- oh shit ugh”. My friend took a video from afar and you can see him looking at me all weird. (I have people who told me that they watched the video more than ten times and still laugh at what I said fuck.)

JOOHEON

Okay, this boy is just adorable from head to toe. He gave me his cute/surprised face that he uses during aegyo when he saw me?I think he noticed my camera so I said “Jooheon?” He leaned closer to me and went “What?” So i pointed to the box on my head and said “Camera” before giving him a sneaky smile. He then stared at me incredulously and gestured at it before repeating “CamERA?” IT WAS HILARIOUS I’M STILL LAUGHING.

HYUNGWON 

I think he overheard my conversation with Jooheon so you can see him looking at my camera and smiling before moving his attention to me. We were just kind of looking at each other and I went “bye” so he said “bye” as well pft. Put two awkward kids together and this is what you get.

SHOWNU

Last but not least, we have Shownu! I planned to say to him “My dream is to dance with you one day” but I couldn’t say it anD I’M STILL HELLA SALTY ABOUT THIS OKAY. The guard at the end was suspicious and was going to question me so I was like fuck. In the end, we just did our high five, linked our fingers quickly and I said “love you, thank you!” before running off. In the video my friend took, you could see the guard at the end try to grab at me but I ran off so quick Usain Bolt would be jealous. I’m still sad that I couldn’t get a clearer shot with Shownu and to tell him what I intended to say but being able to interact with him is already amazing in itself. 

PHOTO TAKING SESSION

The last part of the fan meet was a photo taking session! They increased the number of people for the photo from 20 to 30 people so you can imagine how slim the chances were to sit in front of one of them. I wasn’t all that lucky so I was a row in front of them. However, I did make the most of the last moments with them. I thanked all of them for coming as I made my way to my spot because they must be tired and all that. I then waved to Wonho and my baby waved back! Jooheon was beside him so I did the “1+1=gwiyomi” thing and we did weird aegyo shit together before I turned around, laughing. My pose was of me kissing my Wonho fan (I’m the biggest loser around). When we finished taking the photo, they waved us all goodbye and that’s the end!

LASTLY, I’d just like to say that meeting and interacting with them is such an amazing experience that I will never forget. I sincerely hope that all Monbebes out there will get their chance to listen and see them in person. They are wonderful people, friendly, sweet and talented, so I’m very thankful. I met lots of great people during that day and I’m thankful to MonstaX for helping with that as well. If you made it all the way to this point, I’d just like to say thank you and a huge good luck because I want everyone to be able to meet these angels and leave with a smile on their faces. 

rae out 

(if you’d like to chat or anything just slip into my ask box or find me on my twitter @ jeonlights)

but nomi offhandedly saying to sun “so how did you get all ‘black widow’?” and sun getting confused and responding that she isn’t a spider

and nomi saying “no, like natasha romanoff…scarlett johansson?” and sun just getting more confused and nomi ends up taking a poll of which of the sensates have actually seen the avengers at all because is she the only nerd out of the bunch

and will has seen it because captain america is his favorite superhero and he doesn’t want to admit it but he’s seen pretty much everything chris evans has ever been in

and lito has seen it because dani dragged him there, and riley has seen it because shugs dragged her there, and wolfgang has seen it because felix dragged him there, and he adds that that’s also the reason he’s seen almost every star wars

and sun has heard of age of ultron because it was filmed partially in korea but nomi and amanita just look at each other and shake their heads with a grimace like “no bby you’re not seeing that one”

and kala used to read comic books so she’s convinced that bucky is part of the team and that he looks way different

and capheus says that he’s never heard of them but he would love to see the film with his big trademark smile

and nomi downloading the film in about fifteen seconds and sending out “MOVIE NIGHT, MY PLACE, NOW” and the cluster all visit and watch the movie and spend hours afterwards debating the question “so if sun is black widow, which one am I?”

and they all agree that will is totally steve rogers and the comparison literally brings a tear to his eye

and “wolfgang is thor” and “kala is totally bruce” spark some light debate

and lito is pleasantly surprised when the gang nominates him as tony stark and all he can muster in response is “hombre del hierro…dios mio, guys.”

and it’s really hard for the cluster to decide who everyone else is so nomi and amanita look at each other, shrug, and then turn on agents of s.h.i.e.l.d.

and later the cluster just gets a group netflix account so they can get each other’s references.

busy-nothings  asked:

Hi hi! So excited for your ficathon! I'm a sorta inexperienced prompt leaver (fairly new-ish to fandom!) but I LOVE your stuff and thought I'd give it a whirl: so maybe an AU in which Derek and Stiles are co-stars in a major comic movie franchise (a la Chris Evans/Sebastian Stan in the Captain America movies?). You're the best, thanks for being so lovely!

THIS PROMPT IS FROM FOREVER AGO BUT I’M FINALLY WRITING IT. I’m afraid I don’t know much about the Evans/Stan dymaic, but Stiles and Derek in a major comic movie is a go! Also, I have zero clue how conventions work, because I’ve never been to one, so this is probably way inaccurate.

Stiles doesn’t know what he ever did to deserve this sort of punishment. Nothing, he’s pretty sure. I mean, he’s never exactly been an angel, but he likes to think he’s been a reasonably decent human being. Which clearly means that the world just has a sick sense of humor, because Derek Hale has an arm around his shoulders like they’re on a date.

Not that this is a date, of course. Admittedly, Stiles would be thrilled to have a first date a Comic Con, but unfortunately he’s not that lucky.

Also, they’re sitting in front of a few thousand people, because apparently they’re famous now. Alright, so Derek was kind of famous even before this, but Stiles was pretty much a nobody taking bit parts on NCIS: Los Angeles before he somehow managed to land a major part in a Marvel film.

Yeah, he can’t quite believe it either.

Not to mention the fact that he’s almost too young to play Gambit, Remy LeBeau, at twenty-three years of age. That and he had to spend almost a month in Louisiana to actually mimic a halfway-decent Cajun accent. But hey, at least he had the card tricks down already.

“You alright?” Derek murmurs, breath tickling Stiles’ ear, and he jumps in surprise.

“Yeah, sorry, just – ” Stiles waves his arm in vague explanation. “ – tired, maybe.”

“Here, drink some water,” Derek says, handing over his own water bottle, even though Stiles has a perfectly good one in front of him already. Stiles accepts it anyway, unscrewing it and trying not to notice that the seal is already cracked. What was it his mother used to call it when people shared a straw or drink? An indirect kiss?

Not that he ever thinks about kissing Derek. Really.

OK you think rey is Han and Leias daughter but how does that add up? Can you elaborate on how you think this could work?

anonymous asked:

omg ashlie what did you think of the collabs? I was dying of laughter they were so funny. I'm also shocked about what Dan said at the beginning of his video about what they have in common :O like everyone knows what he was hinting to. To me he is pretty much 'out' without being fully publicly 'out' already ifykwim but I was still surprised to hear him go there.

One word: BEAUTIFUL. That was all kinds of beautiful. They work so well together. Tyler really does have quite the knack for getting people to open up. God bless him. Like I actually laughed out loud several times and had tears in my eyes. HILARIOUS combination. Can’t even count the innuendos lol they were endless. Dan referencing gay sex and bdsm? I'm here for it.

Also love how Phil was still involved and the way that he tailored the questions to target Dan lol. Dan’s reaction to the ones he chose was perfect. “You little shit” is probably right up their with “you spoon/spork” for my favorite term of endearment they have for each other lol. But yeah I loved how it somehow managed to emphasize how much of a unit D&P are, even though the video only had Dan physically present? Remarkable how that works.

And the beginning of the video on DINOF with the whole winkwinknudgenudge about what they have in common? Amazing. Ambiguous Dan is my favorite Dan. I’m surprised he went there but at the same time not considering how clear he’s made it lately. Honestly, to be quite frank, if anyone still thinks Dan is 100% straight at this point then they are seriously dense. He’s made it beyond clear. (Personally, I feel like from the beginning he's never really hidden that, but I agree he's definitely been more forward with it recently). I thought it was great to see him be so casual about it, especially in a main channel video.

Overall, he just looked so carefree and open and that made for a hilarious collab. I feel like this is closer to the way Dan would act around friends off camera so I feel privileged to have seen. Kudos again to Tyler for bringing that out of him. Reminds me of Tyler’s tweet to Dan a while back about missing having "girl talk" with him lol. Like that sounds so accurate, they always seem so giggly when they’re together and it's adorable to see coming from Dan. I’m all for more Dan/Tyler videos.

Also, here’s to the collab with Phil that I’m praying will pop up soon. I’m 95% sure they filmed together so I can’t wait to see how they will interact on camera together <3

So this occurred to me last night. Lets not forget the tattoo that Amberle saw in the bath will come up next ep which i'm sure wil might question how Amberle saw said tattoo. But what I like is it shows that the bath scene was not only trying to get the girls to bound, but show Eretria likes Amberle & show off the tattoo. So that scene really had 3 key parts to it. And I like that. It was not just a throw away scene, there was great importance to it. And well hot as hell but who's counting. Kea

After watching Lost, and after all those film classes I had to take in the past, I’m not even surprised. The staff, mostly the writers and directors, love these kinds of scenes. Is why we, as consumers, know that every little detail matters, and we’re usually right. This is why Swan Queen never made sense that it wasn’t intentional? They can’t just give you all these clues with all the signs leading to something and then they don’t give you the ‘something.’ So the facts are, 1) We know Eretria is bi. 2) We know she has expressed her attraction to Amberle via the bath scene. 3) We know that the show creators are going for a triangle. 4) We know Eretria is more important to Amberle than she is to Will. That much is obvious from episode 8. Anything he expressed towards Eretria in the past 2-3 episodes, has been nothing but physical attraction. On the contrary, Amberle’s the one who knows much more about Eretria because she actually asked. 5) We know Amberle would do anything to save Eretria. 6) We know Eretria would literally stand in front of an arrow, which is the same as a bullet, just to protect Amberle. I really hope this isn’t a Swanqueen type of situation. Just look at the body language. The signs are there, I hope the writers are brave enough to ditch this overused-love triangle and start adding some flare.
