i'm not saying this is one of my favorite quotes

“I’ll protect you… no matter what” 

“And now we come to the moment again that these two scientists have a bonding. These guys have disliked each other. I frankly, honestly am very moved by this moment, one of my favorite moments in the film. And directing these actors here is a pleasure for them to be arguing arguing arguing and then Gottlieb says we are going to do this together. And there is a very awkward and very touching moment, in which Newt says ‘you will do this for me, with me?’ I remember directing this moment and asking them to be awkward about it, to have Burn do the ‘By Jove, we will own this thing for sure’ and this awkward little gesture. We were all laughing on the set but it was honestly a touching moment for me, a very human moment for me.” - Guillermo Del Toro

I see the title of your blog and get really teary eyes... One of the best Haikyuu moments ;A;

Honestly SAME I cry every time I think about Mou Ikkay that sentence really means the world to me. As I said in my Top 5 Haikyuu Quotes, it’s my favorite thing to hear them say. It means “one more!” and it’s truly what this show is about: there’s always gonna be one more toss to spike, one more serve to receive, one more wall to break, one more round to run, one more tournament to win, one more summer training camp to attend, one more person to love, one more relationship to rebuild, one more friend to make, one more of everything…if you just don’t give up

Behind the Scenes of Smith And Jones (Part Three)

Excerpts from DWM #381 (article(s) by Jason Arnopp)

[Quotes from Anne Reid:]
“I told my agent I couldn’t wait to suck David Tennant’s blood. She told me I wasn’t the only one!”

“He’s the most wonderful Doctor Who and he’s so nice to work with.  So kind.  Makes a huge difference.  When you have a leading actor who’s as genuinely nice as he is, it goes through the whole company, in my experience.  I didn’t realize he had a Scottish accent!”

[Russell T. Davies on Anne Reid:]
“She was brilliant, and David got on with her a treat. That scene, where she’s sucking his blood with a straw… must’ve been 500 takes cos they were both laughing so much.”

[Roy Marsden (who plays Stoker) on David Tennant:]
"David has a dynamic, energy, charm, and a wonderful quality of innocence. That’s very attractive in a character.  His energy drives the show.  He’s what I call an actor who really hangs out the line, so everyone else can hang their washing on it.”

[Freema on David:]
"Straight away, I was a little bit in awe,” she confesses.  "I’m glad that we did a few scenes without him yesterday, to give me a chance to be calm on set.  Having said that, there was a moment today, when I looked at him and had to do a double-take.  He’s amazing.  He’s so good at what he does: a quality actor.  Being in a scene with him, I find myself watching him like a viewer, then remembering that I actually have to interact with him and say lines!”

buffy vs emma

I saw a lot of people comparing Emma killing Hook to Buffy killing Angel. I think that even with the obvious similarities, these were very different (I’ll explain why later) but I want to talk about what happened after their deaths. How Buffy and Emma reacted differently to having to kill the people they loved. After all, it’s in this Buffy episode we get one of my favorite quotes ever:

Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you’re not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can’t help that. It’s what you do afterwards that counts. That’s when you find out who you are.

In the surface it’s all very similar. They both kill their boyfriends and are devastated. They both go to a “hell dimension” and come back from it. And then both boyfriends come back from the dead. So, what are the differences that, in my opinion, made the story told by Buffy so much better?

First, I want to talk about the difference I see between the two killing scenes. Like I said, they’re both similar in the surface. Both Emma and Buffy had to kill the person they loved to save the world with a sword to the chest. The same thing, right? No. Buffy killing Angel was about Buffy, and Emma killing Hook was about Hook.

Buffy made the decision she had to make to save the world. She was ready to kill him when his soul came back. He didn’t even know what was going on, she kissed him and killed him. It was a decision she had to make. And it was SO hard. But she did it anyway, because that’s what she had to do.

Emma killing Hook was all about him and his choices. The decision to kill him to save everyone is not hers, it’s his. He is the one who tells her to kill him so he can “die as a hero”. She doesn’t want to, but she does what he asks. He is the hero (he’s not, obviously, but that what the show is saying) so it’s all about him.

Ok, now let’s see what happens afterwards.

Buffy is obviously devastated, she isolates herself from her friends and family and goes to another city. She isn’t the slayer anymore and she is even using another name. But she never tries to bring him back, even if she’s broken. She lost herself due to the trauma, and that’s clearly what the show is saying.   In this same episode she goes to a hell dimension where she realises that what she’s doing is not ok, and starts to find herself again. She uses her slayer powers and affirms her name and who she is before leaving the hell dimension. Then she goes back to her friends and family. All of that happens in one episode.

Emma is also obviously devastated, and also isolates herself from her friends and family, but not physically, just emotionally. She can only think about Hook, can’t accept he died and decides to get him back from the dead. And the people who love her go with her because they want to help. So, like Buffy, she goes to a sort of “hell dimension” . There, he is still the only she can think about, and when they find him she can’t let go of him for one second, acting like a typical damsel in distress. To me, it looks like she lost herself like Buffy did. She’s not the savior anymore, she’s not the Emma Swan who wanted to protect her family, who had agency, she’s a woman who can only survive if she has her boyfriend with his arm around her. But unlike Buffy, Emma losing herself lasts several episodes, and it doesn’t look like the show is aware of this. They seem to think that’s who she really is. But for a moment, when she’s leaving the UW, it looks like the show might finally acknowledge this, and she finally lets him go… but again, it was not her choice, it was his.

After she comes back, Buffy goes back to her life, to her friends and family and even starts dating again. Angel has been gone from months and she is starting to move on. She has time to deal with things and see she can have a life without him. And even after he returns, she doesn’t go immediately back to him. She helps him, but she keeps moving on with her life.

They’re not giving Emma the same chance. He’s coming back right after she let him go. There’s no time for her to deal with things and realise the can live without him. There’s no time for her to grow. See, I’m not even saying he couldn’t come back, even if I think he shouldn’t, but there’s not even time to show Emma moving on without him. And when he’s back she’s immediately hanging on him like before.

So Buffy told a similar story in the surface but made it about the female character and how she made her choices, dealt with things, moved on and grew as person without Angel. And that doesn’t mean she didn’t love him, of course she did, but she’s someone who fights and moves on even when it hurts. OuaT is just making Emma completely dependent on her boyfriend and with no agency, and giving her no time to deal with things. The viewer just learns she really can’t live without him anymore. Is that what love is? Not being able to survive without the other? Is that who Emma really is? Is that the story they really want to tell?

I’m very sad to see Emma, a character I always loved so much, being portrayed like this. I still think there is coming back from it, but the writers need to see what they’re doing to her for it to get better, and I don’t know if they see it.

This is based on speculation from next episode that Hook will come back and they will be happy. If he’s an hallucination or something like that, things are a bit different, of course :P

“"Maybe you people are better off without me. Go ahead. I say there’s a place for us, but maybe it’s just another pipe dream. Maybe I’m fooling myself again. Why don’t you go and find out yourself? Send me a postcard! Go on, there’s the door. You can do better? Let’s see how far you get. No takers? Fine. But get one thing straight. You’re staying? This isn’t a democracy anymore.” – Rick Grimes, “Beside the Dying Fire"
