i'm not sure if this one was his last interview... to be honest

anonymous asked:

I'm gonna be honest that the quote about Liam and the baby made me doubt a bit but your blog always helps me and reassures me. But I also like to hurt myself so I listened to the audio and if the audio came out before that quote I wouldn't have doubted for a second. Melly, Liam can barely sell it unless it's on print. I can't help laughing cause he seemed like he forgot his lines. Live interviewers are so telling

Here’s the thing! No matter how many Cherliam Lifetime Original Movie moments Team solo!Loammy have spun in the last two weeks, that’s still not going to make me and my Boobs Instincts forget the Lemony Snickett of fuckiness that occurred before that baby was born.

Let us put on our best Investigation Bras and go on a Journey of Fuckiness:

- Cherliam was announced as a Dan Wootton Hoofsclusive (February 27)

- The CheriamNews update account was created 2 full days prior to the Dan Wootton article revealing them as “secret lovers” (ohmygod i cannot type that with a straight face)

- Cheryl and Liam’s relationship immediately gets called out for being fake, because duh:

- But not before grossing everyone out by spinning a romance narrative that featured a 24 year old Cheryl and a 14 year old Loammy

- Cheryl’s 874 year long pregnancy begins, with pregnancy headlines running almost immediately, beginning in March 2016. Bump watch headlines begin in May:

- Which then leads to another Dan Wootton Hoofsclusive from a “source” that was 100% Cheryl that they were “trying” for a baby (never mind that they were dating for 10 minutes or that she was still legally married or that he was embarking on a solo career or who the fuck would announce to Dan Wootton they were “trying” for a baby in the first place ):

- Cheryl was baiting the press before she was even pregnant by wearing sack dresses one day with hand pressed to her belly, and the next wearing well tailored outfits. While all this was happening, she was also selling stories to the tabloids almost daily while simultaneously calling for her privacy. I can’t.  

- Through all of this, Loammy is only seen with Cheryl a small handful of times, having fucked off to LA for almost the entirety of her 874 year long pregnancy. To try and mitigate that, daily stories are run that seed reasons for Loammy’s absence during her pregnancy and for why Loammy won’t be present for raising that baby shortly after its born. 

- If that’s not enough fuckiness for you, there was also the fuckton of ran and solved blind items about Cherliam that were simultaneously running counter narratives.

But sure, nothing to see here, everything looks totally unsuspish and unfucky!

I'm going to say the cast did everything to hide this scene. There was an article only last week where everyone talked about the lack of sex on the show. They all just kept talking about the problems that might come. And with the whole asexuality thing too, we all could never think they would go this way, at max expected 'I love you'. I wonder if this was the change they did in the finale.

there is a lack of sex on the show. at least for a cw show, which i actually kind of like. it’s different. it makes the sex scenes they do have much more special (except the archie/grundy ones. those were not needed or wanted). most of the characters are also only about 15/16. i know that teens are becoming sexually active younger, but i feel like most people that age are still virgins 

yeah, i definitely wasn’t expecting the bughead make out we got and the confirmation that betty and jughead were going to have sex. i thought that because it was said his sexuality wasn’t addressed this season and that they were working on incorporating asexuality into the second season (i can’t remember if they said it was going to be with jughead specifically). i know that some people think that the near sex scene and knowledge that they were originally supposed to be the couple that had sex settles the sexuality debate, but it could still be addressed in season two. i mean, it eliminated his being asexual in the black and white term, which is somebody who feels no sexual attraction. however, it’s not that cut and dry. asexuality, like all sexuality, is a giant spectrum. it brought him away from the area that has no want for sex at all, that is true, because i feel like it would be difficult to back peddle on what happened in the finale without it feeling like they were back peddling– but it is a very real possibility that betty is the only person that he’s ever felt sexually attracted to and wanted to, or would be okay with, having sex with. that would put him more towards demisexual (which is my head canon) or sex positive asexual, and is something that could totally be brought up next season. a sexually active ace person is just as asexual as an ace person who never has sex 

honesty, i was trying really hard not to get my hopes up for an ‘i love you’ because i didn’t want to be disappointed if it didn’t happen… but silently i was kind of expecting one because of how sure lili was that betty was in love with jughead. her answers are usually my favorite. she seems to be the most honest about what’s coming up next, which i’m grateful for. it’s so frustrating when actors and members of the creative team say one thing in one interview and then something else in another interview. i’m looking at you RAS. she’s also very professional in the sense that she would outwardly support whatever direction the writers took betty in romantically, but you get the sense that deep down she’s not here for the BAV love triangle and romantic b*rchie. she straight up said she thinks it would be weird and disappointing (for betty and archie) if they got together. i appreciate that a lot because, shipping bughead aside, i think it is so fucking great that they haven’t pit betty and veronica against each other over a boy. that shit ruins potentially beautiful friendships between women (*cough*brooke and peyton*cough*) and i’m not here for that. then there’s also the fact there’s already 75 goddamn years and hundreds of adaptations of that love triangle. i think it would be so much more interesting to see them firmly establish bughead and varchie as the show’s couples and watch them work to be together. i want couples that go through the fucking ringer together. the keyword there being: together. i want to watch them overcome these hard, horrible obstacles as a team. i want them to have near breaking points too… in the words of cole sprouse, that’s real and honest; couples stumble and they almost fall, but then they remember how much they love each other and fight to build their relationships back up. i want real, dynamic, beautiful relationships that i can honestly root for. they have that potential with how they went about, and ended, the first season. i pray pray pray that they don’t sacrifice that for love triangles and partner swapping. that’s so tired.

Hi Calli! It's been a long time since I saw your asks open! I have just a quick question. I guess this could be a question for you and Jen because she doesn't seem to have her asks at all. Anyways, pretty generic question and one I'm sure you're tired of getting, but I'm still curious: after all of the spoilers and interviews we have gotten, do you guys think that Olicity will get back together with each other by the end of season 5? I'm scared they'll stall them again.

Hi. For the cliffhanger, do think that Oliver will be stranded on the island for all hiatus? I’m really hoping this doesn’t happen. I just really hope the cliffhanger isn’t Olicity related. I hope Olicity reunite with each other in S5 and that that isn’t left as a tease/cliffhanger. I’m tired of this game. We’ve more than paid our dues in angst. I’d been like… a year and a half.

Reading your convo and gif war with jbuffyangel was cute lol. May I ask what you’re glass half-empty about? And what do you think the cliffhanger will be?

I’m combining these three anons into one reply since they’re all so similar and arrived in my inbox within several hours of one another. While I was getting some good sleep, there was some concern happening up in here. 

Hi anon(s)! I’ve actually had my inbox open since I returned from my last little break, a couple months ago. Either people didn’t notice or didn’t want to send me stuff, I have no idea. But I’m more than happy to field questions. 

First things first: YES, I think Olicity gets back together by the end of season 5. That’s been my mantra all season long and I’ve only gotten more and more sure of it the closer we get to the end of season 5. My opinion hasn’t changed, I guess, is what I’m saying. We have paid our dues in angst. And the stall has stalled itself out, so to speak. Shows can’t spin wheels forever, eventually the audience gets frustrated and the reasons for spinning those wheels kinda break down. We’re at the end of that, I feel. 

My good friend @jbuffyangel has really gone more in depth on the reasons for believing in a reunion than I’m going to go into. So I assure you, she’s also right here with me in being all systems go for a reunion. 

Now, some of you may have seen the teasing convo she and I had on twitter last night. We’ve been having this argument for a couple weeks now and it’s entertaining and I kinda made it public without really saying what it’s about. It’s clear that maybe some might think we’re arguing about the cliffhanger. Without saying what it’s really about, I will say this: It’s NOT about the cliffhanger. No, it’s far more silly than that. 😉

To be honest, we don’t talk about the cliffhanger that much. I don’t think either of us have a clue about that but I think we both agree that we don’t feel it has to do with the Olicity reunion. Not saying it won’t involve Oliver and/or Felicity, just not their romantic status with one another. I rather feel that’ll be settled in 5x22, actually, leaving the finale for other pressing matters. 

I don’t have any firm specs on what the cliffhanger actually is, but I’m also not really worried about it either. Then again, I haven’t been really worried about anything all season long, so I might be a poor barometer. I understand some are nervous and I get why. I hope you’re pleased with how it turns out, however it turns out. 

Just remember: OLICITY IS RISING. Tomorrow’s episode is just the official start of that. The reunion will likely NOT happen in 5x20 and I hope fans aren’t too disappointed when it doesn’t happen. But it will happen. We’re days away from that reunion. Isn’t that amazing? I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty excited about it!

- We are honored to have Nanase Haruka and Tachibana Makoto with us today.

Haruka + Makoto: Thank you for having us.

- Well then, first thing first, please tell us how you met each other.

Makoto: Well… Haru and I are childhood friends, and our homes are really close to each other, so it’s like we’ve been together since the very beginning.

Haruka: I can’t remember something that long ago.

Makoto: But if you must know, I think our first encounter was when we were 0 years old.  We have photos from that time in our family albums.

Haruka: …like I’d remember.

Makoto: That’s true lol.

Because @flomps was riffing at me about Zarry reconciling on an episode of the Kardashians then went to sleep before finishing it…

“Zayn, I need you to behave.”

Zayn blinks. It feels like a non sequiter, when he’d been busy refusing all of Gigi’s coaxing to actually get him out of the lodge and onto skis. He supposes she could be mad about him making a scene, but the lodge was loud and he didn’t think their argument–not even argument, really–had registered at all. Though sometimes Gigi was even more paranoid about that sort of shit than he was.

Still, he can’t see what she means, so he just smirks, steps closer to her. He’s in his boots and she’s in flats before she gets into her ski boots, so they’re almost the same height. “Thought you liked it when I misbehaved.”

She rolls her eyes, but he thinks she’s charmed. She’s smiling a little, at least. Though she’s always smiling. Maybe she is annoyed, he can’t tell.

“Seriously.” Her hand’s on his face now, holding his cheek like she does when she wants him to pay attention to her. Someday, Zayn would like to do some sort of study about why everyone feels the need to touch his face constantly, but he’s not complaining. He likes it from Gigi, the casual intimacy. He’s missed that sort of physicality from everyone around him, these days. “Don’t be mad, and don’t make a scene.”

“I’m not making a scene.” Zayn tries to be even, but it probably comes off as sullen. “I just don’t want to ski, I’m not saying you shouldn’t. I’ll hang out here and–”

“Not about that,” Gigi cuts him off, and turns his head to the side.

He sees the cameras first, video equipment with a group of brunette hair at the center coming up the stairs to the main floor of the lodge. It’s not hard to recognize. He’s lived at the center of documentary crews enough. “Why would I be mad Kendall’s here?” He can just avoid the cameras, it’s fine. He’s not going to stop Gigi from hanging out with her best friend.

“Not her,” Gigi mutters, and she sounds worried. Gigi’s not worried often, takes everything with a laugh in a way that’s reassuringly casual even if it makes Zayn wonder just what about their relationship she’s taking with a laugh, so Zayn’s already tense when he looks closer. “I didn’t know he was coming until this morning, but we can’t leave so you have to behave.”

SnK Chapter 84

Let me start by saying what I enjoyed about this chapter.

  • Hange for calming a storm with ironclad reasoning. 
  • Connie for remembering his manners and having the decency to say goodbye. 
  • Flocke for understanding how life in the military works.
  • Moblit who acted quickly and selflessly in a moment of despair.

And that’s pretty much it. 

Last month many were predicting this exact outcome but I urged restraint. I was looking forward to the plot twist that would silence the critics. I was cautiously optimistic that the last three chapters of intense emotional build up would lead to something  profound and significant, and not just pointless drama.

Oops. My bad.

anonymous asked:

what do you think about people making fun of jonghyun for writing a song about his dog? and also about people saying that he's faking things for his album? i'm seeing a lot of that.

yeah, i’ve seen a lot of people make fun of him for mentioning that he was thinking about roo when writing bits and pieces of the title track and people can say what they want to, i guess, but i’m sure he’d be upset if he knew that there were people out there mocking him for that. like… everyone has their own thing. various things that make him happy and comfort them and it’s blatantly obvious that roo, his mom and his sister are three of the things that comfort and make jonghyun happy. i thought that most were aware of that already but, then again, there’s different levels that a person can “bias” or “stan” someone. but…, yeah. it’s a little mean for people to do but what can you do. what he said about the writing process was pretty sincere too.

as for people saying that he’s “faking” things for his album: … i honestly don’t know how to respond to that, lmao. he put everything into these songs. they’re a combination of him trying to relate to stories that fans and listeners of blue night sent in to him, him trying to express himself and him trying to connect with fans / listeners on a more personal level. it’s kind of wild to be that anyone who’s a fan of his would think that he’s not being genuine with what he’s released, especially these songs. he flat out said that he spent so many nights trying to perfect the songs for fans that he physically exhausted himself, and he’s went into elaborate detail in the past while releasing the demo versions of each song about what he was feeling and thinking when writing them. (there’s so many of them that i won’t link, but i’m sure you get the picture.) also: all he’s being doing over the last two days is ramble on about how grateful he is for people even giving a listen to the songs so… idk. people don’t have to like the songs or even the album; it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but…

i feel like i’ve answered a question about this recently but not in relation to this album, obviously. it’s too fresh for that, but this is how i feel about… whatever this new trend is in discrediting him:  he’s super honest and sincere and passionate in a good deal of his comments along with a combination of choosing his words very carefully and pouring a lot of emotion into them. i feel like people are still not used to it coming from him, despite how long he’s been doing blue night now, because we rarely got a chance to hear him speak so candidly before he was appointed as the dj for the show. some of his interviews in the past hinted at it but a lot of those were also from back when he was still a teenager / in his early twenties and he’s matured a lot since then. (i think he was always mature enough and playing up an image that sm handed off to him at debut until two or three years ago, but.) of course he’s going to have his moments where he lies or he “fakes” it but that’s every idol? they have an image to maintain and private lives to protect and that’s understandable / their business but i honestly feel like jonghyun is one of the more genuinely open idols around at the moment? he’s opened up so much to fans in the last year (when he honestly had no reason to; he’s been hurt a lot in the past by his own fans, look at what happened when he was dating shin se kyung) and i’m happy that. idk,

tl;dr: i think he’s an easy target for people because of how genuine he is and people have taken advantage of that.

anonymous asked:

Hi. I'm not really sure if you dabble into zerrie stuff. But um do you think that there's a possibility that yes it started out as publicity and then blossomed into something more? I'm always torn between its real and its fake. All confusing tbh but um yeah

I think it’s been fake from the start, partly because it seems to follow other 1D girlfriend/hook up patterns.  The couch interview where Louis and Harry pretended (or not?) to kiss was one of the first times Perrie was brought up at all.  If you watch it, it seems quite forced, like Zayn knew he had to single out Perrie from Little Mix! and say he liked her.  In fact, he had such a hard time doing it, the others ended up doing most of it for him.

Considering that not only did Little Mix sign with Modest, but they were part of the X Factor which 1D are the biggest alums of, it’s not strange that they wanted to use 1D to promote Little Mix.  1D has been used to promote X Factor contestants multiple times through dating rumors.  Has it mostly been Niall?  I think it’s mostly been Niall, but there was: Sophia Wardman, Lola Saunders, Amelia Lily, Tamera Foster, and Lauren Platt, plus a few others who were more tangentially related like Samantha Jade, Jessie J, and Alexandra Burke.

If there was any chance of it being real, it was at the beginning, but as I just said, I don’t think it was real then either.  We’ve seen far too much by now to know Zayn isn’t into the idea of dating her at all, so there was no blossoming of romance later on.

Now for the fun!!
  • So over the ships pretty sure Rucas is happening now on to the "game changing" news that's going to happen in sweet sixteen! So I'm going to try my hand at predictions! Mind you I'm bad at this stuff so bear with me lol
  • So first what we know
  • ~Everything relies on a decision (so the game changer may not happen)
  • ~Topanga has some say in the decision
  • ~Depending on the decision Cory could potentially not be their teacher anymore
  • ~It has nothing to do with money
  • ~it has nothing to do with school
  • ~there is no threat of them moving back to philly
  • ~ Cory was not offered a better job
  • ~ an opportunity did not present itself to Riley
  • ~Farkle dos not get an early acceptance to college
  • ~the game changer makes Riley Auggie and Maya sad and cry but it in itself isn't necessarily sad...it's actually good
  • ~if it happened it will affect EVERYONE including even Shawn
  • ~ Farkle does not know and his reaction should be particularly interesting
  • ~ someone if not everyone is finally going to "explode"
  • ~no one came out as gay bi etc
  • ~ may seem to the "bird watchers" (wtf is that) that it is good for rucas but in fact it isn't
  • ~ no one dies and we already said the game changer was actually good news so this is like common sense
  • ~no one is pregnant (although that honestly would be like the BIGGEST game changer of all time in my book especially if Riley was pregnant but that's like OVER pushing the envelope lol)
  • ~this game changer could potentially affect Rilaya and it seems not in a good way
  • ~Maya is not moving in with her dad
  • ~If they film the show where the game changer does happen,again, everyone will be affected and they could potentially end the show on this ( if need be i.e. Get canceled)
  • ~if no cancellation again everything will change
  • ~there is the potential to lose someone
  • ~in this episode no one is moving
  • okay so with all of this information to me the most obvious predication is that Cory, Topanga, Riley, and Auggie are potentially moving. Really the only thing that will affect everyone and the very premise of the show itself with these perimeters is them moving. Because really nothing would affect Shawn other than Maya and Katy and let's be honest most of all Cory lol. We know Maya isn't moving to her fathers but still if Maya was the one moving why would Auggie be crying and Topanga have a choice in the matter?
  • -So we know Cory didn't get a new job offer and Riley didn't get a new opportunity. I thought about maybe one of their parents got really sickly and they had to move back to be with them but nahh because of the hint the news is good and they are not moving back to philly. So this kind of only leaves either Auggie getting a new opportunity and them moving for him or Topanga once again getting a new opportunity (and I say once again because there's always something going on with Topanga esp if you watched BMW). Also as far as tying into Topangas say in the matter the girl meets world writers already said sometime in this season Riley and Topanga were going to have a huge fight and this might be the catalyst. Also there was a hint at possibly someone realizing they like another person while being in a relationship because reality has a way of making things clear with the potential of losing someone. Let's all be honest and say we now this has to do with Riley and Farkle. and also it was stated the show if canceled could easily end this way (also hinted that it's common. What's a more common way to end a series than the main character moving away). Now there was mention that no one was moving (In this episode). It was real suspicious how "in this episode" was added to meaning probably the decision hasn't been made yet about the move.
  • Well those are some of my thoughts where and why they are moving is a mystery but it might become clear soon.
  • I got all of these hints from a tumblr user who was at the live taping of the episode. I honestly forgot their username so if anyone knows it please link or something 😁 oh found its "girlmeetsherworld" I don't know how to tag people lol but there is probably more hints on that blog
  • Feel free to let me know yalls ideas
  • UPDATE: it's recommended to watch these BMW episodes "A long walk to Pittsburg 1&2" , "Graduation", Angela's Ashes, "Brave New World 1&2" now I JUST finished binge watching all of BMW so I don't even need to go rewatch but if you haven't watched these episodes then wow it's almost completely obvious lol
  • "A long Walk To Pittsburg 1&2": episode where Topanga MOVES AWAY to Pittsburg because one of her parents got transferred!!!!
  • "Graduation": episode where they graduated high school and everyone was MOVING AWAY to college and on to the next chapter of their lives. Topanga had to make the decision to go to Yale or stay with Cory (she stays with Cory lol)
  • "Angela's Ashes": Angela MOVES AWAY with her father to Europe
  • "Brave New World 1&2": last episodes of BMW everyone is preparing to MOVE AWAY and again on to the next chapter of their lives. Again, Topanga gets a job offer from a law firm in New York (hello gmw lol) and Cory and Shawn MOVE with her there
  • I mean idk how much more blatant could this get and multiple people have said watch these episodes. And can we please talk about how basically ALL of these episodes have some shit to do with Topanga? Perhaps a hint? Even though Angela was the one leaving in Angela's ashes Topanga was the one zooming around and interviewing for the New York job so The episode was about Angela but HIGH KEY Topanga.
  • Lol I'm going to stick with this moving away thing but knowing my luck it's not going to be this because it would have been "too obvious" haha
  • Another Update:
  • So after an interesting message today I'm now like 87% sure that this is happening 🙊
  • So I watched True Maya and Jexica again because those are the recommended GMW episodes to watch and let's just say in this theory I'm missing exactly who is moving (I think Riley and fam but I'm not exactly sure), why they are moving, and where they are moving
  • Let's just say that after watching those episodes I see that at least one of those answers is defiantly hinted at 👀👀
  • A hint: something pertaining to one of those three questions will be mentioned 3 times over both episodes. All of the mentions are different but they all have one thing in common. Another hint, after you watch the episodes and think about it, look back over the recaps of my BMW episodes. It's literally written right there.
  • Okay actually...after some things I realized that basically everything you need is in this theory lol just put it all together. like I said isn't there a common theme in the BMW episodes? And watch the two GMW episodes and think about what I said. All of this should answer who, why, and where (:

anonymous asked:

So with all this stuff about this dumb cat that looks like Adam I saw someone say that he would be upset if he saw it cause he is sensitive about his looks. Is Adam really insecure about his looks? Has he ever made reference to being insecure about his looks? It makes me sad to think such a phenomenally talented man would be brought down by something so stupid..

Yeah. While the cat itself is adorable, I’m a bit pissed off tbh. Being a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch for several years running, I’m used to the shit about an actor’s physical appearance, even if I’m incapable of seeing the “ugly” or “odd” or “unattractive” or any of it, I’m mainly astonished these people don’t see what I see, but that’s a different discussion, and frankly it’s getting old. First of all I don’t get this obsession about looks, if an actor delivers for a part, that should be enough. Sure, if the part requires a certain appearance I get it, but unless there are some racial issues that needs to be addressed JUST.LEAVE.IT.FUCKING.BE! Like jfc. Just don’t even go there. 

As for the cat specifically, again I need to draw a comparison to Benedict Cumberbatch and the otter!batch meme. After Sherlock aired, a genius posted some pics of otters with the same expressions as Sherlock. And let’s be honest, they were fucking hilarious. Like really, really spot on. And they’ve continued to be funny! Well, I think so, I know a few people got fed up. The point is though, they weren’t mocking Benedict Cumberbatch, they weren’t mocking his looks, they were imitating his expressions. And poses. And there weren’t any malice in them! Hell, they’ve come full circle, he’s imitating them now!

But this thing with the cat, it’s different. As I said, there’s nothing wrong with the cat, it’s super cute, totally adorable, but the joke isn’t. It’s got some, actually just one, exaggerated feature, and they’re saying it looks like him because they imply that the cat’s ugly and has big ears, and well. He looks nothing like that cat. At all. I’m not denying the truth in the fact that he’s got big ears, he does, but the joke’s fucked up. It’s not funny, it’s not cute, and it’s not a joke made by 13 yr olds on the internet, it’s being picked up by some pretty major sites, and most people revelling in it are doing so gleefully and maliciously. And it’s not even remotely funny. Simple as that. Nothing stemming from that point of view is, whether it’s schoolyard bullying or internet hate. And Adam Driver has done nothing to deserve it other than delivering a great performance in a beloved franchise thought dead by most. 

As for the last part, is he subconscious about his looks? Well, I don’t know him, so I can’t be sure. The first thing to spring to mind is this quote:

When he auditioned for Girls in 2011, he says he wasn’t too enthusiastic about doing television, but didn’t feel he would get the part anyway. The script called for ‘a handsome carpenter’, and he did not consider himself leading-man material. 

That’s the one I’ve heard referenced most often regarding this. Even that hilarious post that went around saying he “whined about not being pretty enough” references this quote. He’s also said (about watching himself perform, but still): 

’I’m full of self-doubt and self-hatred and things I want to change and can’t change. It’s better for me to do it and then not think about it.’  

And (just re: that stupid post I mentioned):

His striking but unconventional looks and his character’s contrary, loud expression of emotion led to critics talking about a new kind of masculinity. He says the attention was all down to the quality of Dunham’s writing – and to his gender. ‘I’m a straight, white male,’ he says sheepishly. ‘There are more opportunities for me. It’s unbalanced, and I’ve known so many amazing actors who, because they’re female, have to audition for parts that are painfully terrible.’

(All of the above quotes are from this interview, give it a whirl, it’s a good read.)

Then there’s this (don’t get crying):

I did look strange as a teenager — very prominent facial features, a big nose, big ears and tiny eyes, very rat-like. … I had to develop thick skin. God, in the Marine Corps, if you’re insecure about anything or you have … a mole out of place, people will find it, especially in boot camp, and drill it until you’re numb to it, I guess in a way. I was lucky, though, because in my platoon there was another guy who also had big ears and the drill instructors noticed him before they did me, so he was Ears No. 1 and I was Ears No. 2.”  (x)

What I take from what I’ve read and heard is that, yes. He’s aware that a lot of people find him not conventionally handsome, he’s aware there’s hate based on his looks on the internet (SNL addressed this also), and he’s aware that the most of the “critical” backlash he’s received after TFA has to do with appearances and not performance. 

On the other hand I’d find it hard to believe that someone that seems so level headed and comfortable in their own skin, would actually stoop to care about any of this shit. He’s a talented, successful and happily married man that seems to have a fairly good grip on what matters in life and what fucking doesn’t. So I don’t see him brought down by this in the slightest. And the fucking idiots that goes along with it?

Oh, and he’s absolutely frickkin flopping gorgeous. So there’s that.

Hope you’re having a wonderful day, dear anon. Don’t let the haters upset you!

Maybe the animators don't like Sakura and she isn't a vital support for the series only Sasuke and Naruto are. No offense. Sakura is a tag along even for a suppose main character we never saw or Kishimoto wasn't interested in letting us know who the Sakura's parents where he obviously doesn't like her. At least he didn't mess around with SS moments I think that's the only thing Kishimoto handle well in the manga the anime was terrible doe. I hope I wasn't offensive if so I'm sorry.

You’re not offensive at all. However,

  1. During the 2015 Jump Festa, Kishimoto expressed how much he likes Sakura, and how upset he was by the fandom’s reception. He really tried his best with Sakura. He was proud for turning her into a “fine young lady“ by the end too.
  2. Kishi was pressed by the editor to not introduce Sakura’s parents in the manga, due to the low popularity of her character. However, RTN’s parent designs are Kishimoto’s.
  3. Oh dear, Sakura isn’t a vital support for the series? A LOT of the manga isn’t vital to the plot’s progression, but it serves for its better appreciation, and those parts aren’t treated as badly by the animators. Almost all characters are in a way or another subplots to Naruto’s and Sasuke’s developments. They are the protagonists after all. Back to Sakura,
    1. She injected Naruto’s chest with chakra. Naruto would be dead otherwise.
    2. She saved Sasuke from the alternate dimension by aiding Obito. Sasuke would be dead otherwise.
    3. Except for the last arc, Sakura’s words are consistently the only ones to reach out to Sasuke, “devouring the wicked power”. Sasuke reacts to her, without her realising. 
    4. It’s Sakura who was given the promise of a lifetime.
    5. It’s Sakura who discovers the whereabouts of Orochimaru to rescue Sasuke.
    6. Without Sakura, Sasuke would have been a murderer of two innocent hindrances (the Otogakure guy at FoD, and Karin).
    7. It’s Sakura who smacked a god in the head.
  4. Let’s be honest, the Naruto plot is about getting Sasuke away from the path of evil. What are the most relevant bonds? NaruSasu - the Yin-Yang ”brotherly” growth-promoting rivalry, ItaSasu - unconditional love of your natal family, SasuSaku - unconditional love of your family-to-be. The parallels were decided since 2006.
  5. Saying that Sakura is not plot-relevant also means ignoring the most significant lessons to be learned from the manga. 
    1. Never give up on people whom you know still have some good in them. Don’t force yourself onto your loved ones, but let them know you will always be there for them.
    2. Armed with hard work alone, you can become the most accomplished professional in your field. Don’t forget Sakura is the only one after Tsunade, privileged by her Senju lineage, to master the Byakogou. She discovered Kankuro’s antidote within hours, failed accomplishment by Sunagakure’s entire medic team. The God of Shinobi is impressed by her alone.
    3. A girl doesn’t need to be romantically attached to a person to experience compassion and affection for them. (See Naruto, Chiyo, Rock Lee, Hinata, Karin, endless injured shinobi and children)
    4. Intelligence and accomplishments are sexy
    5. Once you think you’ve exhausted all your resources, you can still “give everything you’ve got”. Sakura drained her little chakra left to pump life into Naruto’s heart. She still managed to release her Byakogou after that. Twice. That’s unbelievable courage and resilience.
  6. Kishimoto too never stopped thinking of Sakura as a heroine (see JF15 interview again). You say that her skills aren’t comparable to Naruto and Sasuke’s, but she’s a Sannin/Kage-level shinobi at 17. Actually, I’m thankful that at least one main character was spared of gratuitous power-ups. 

Would it have been nicer if Kishi had given more focus to Sakura? Sure. Though it’s more the reader’s fault, and his inadvertent misogyny. People on average prefer unrealistic women, stripped of their humane complexity, “physically strong and mentally impassible”. Sakura is real, she faced problems which are relatable for many, and she’s an excellent role model for the way she overcame them. Arguably, she sustained the most tangible character development of all characters.

Regardless, the animator’s biases shouldn’t show. Some people will never read the manga, and their understanding of Sakura is forever skewed by people who de facto are overturning the plot of the manga. Then anime watchers complain that the plot isn’t consistent. Of course it isn’t. You’re not telling the story right.

Hi Libby:) I was just wondering. I know he's gay but I'm seriously sitting here with a well of feelings and it's so annyoing :s I don't get why I can't be more stable, it's just an interview. Plus he mentions Emily Blunt, and guilty pleasure Casey Moss Graves? :s Honestly, I know he's gay but it's like I just become this nervous wreck and really need someone to talk to, haha. Let me know if you want me to go off anon but I don't mind this being posted:) Just why does he HAVE to mention girls....

Hello nonnie! Ah yes, those annoying feelings of discomfort when the heteronormative narrative starts trying to worm back into your brain, telling you you’re wrong. I’m sure we’ve all experienced that at some point, so you’re not alone. We’re trained from birth to accept what the media says as truth, and now your mind is trying to reconcile that with all the things you know about Harry that are in direct opposition to what the media says about him. It’s enough to give the best of us some nauseating cognitive dissonance from time to time.

Sometimes you gotta take the thing that’s bugging you and break it down into its component parts to understand it better. In this case, it’s the Telehits interview, yeah? Now, Harry may or may not identify as gay–I’m pretty sure he’s not straight, but there are plenty of places on the LGBTQ+ continuum he might be, many of which would accommodate attraction to women. However, whether he’s hypothetically attracted to women in general or not, I’m pretty sure that’s not what he’s expressing here. 

So let’s look at some things:

For his “guilty pleasure,” Harry said Kacey Musgraves, who is a country singer/songwriter. How do we interpret this? Some things to consider:

  1. When Harry named Kacey Musgraves, he was talking about her music, not anything about her personally. It’s “guilty” because liking country music is not generally considered cool, especially for a guy Harry’s age. Remember a couple of years ago when he kept bringing up his obsession with that Shania Twain song, and the other boys were like, seriously dude??
  2. Harry has been doing low-key promo for Kacey on twitter and in interviews for months now. It’s unclear whether he’s just in a phase with her music, or if he’s doing it as a favor/compensated promo deal. Or both.
  3. Kacey Musgraves made a lot of waves recently with her hit song “Follow Your Arrow,” which talked about same-sex relationships. This is a big taboo in country music, and it was a big deal when the song won Song of the Year at the CMAs last month. So I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Harry got into her music through that and wanted to promote it, both for its own sake and as one more tiny thing in his series of increasingly unsubtle messages about his own sexuality.
  4. I’ve heard that Kacey Musgraves is an Azoff client, though to be honest, I can’t find any documentation of that beyond Jeff Azoff following her on twitter. But there may be a connection there.

Conclusion: Harry had a lot of time to think about it while the other boys were talking, and he saw an opportunity to get in another plug for Ms. Musgraves. Whatever his reasons, it has nothing whatsoever to do with her being a girl or him being attracted to her. If anything, her rep as an LGBTQ+ rights supporter in a very homophobic industry just points all the harder to Harry being not straight himself when he keeps bringing her up.

Okay, so the second thing you mentioned bothering you is Harry mentioning Emily Blunt when they were being asked about celebrity crushes. Things we can consider about this one:

  1. Harry initially had no intention of answering the question on his own behalf. He jumped in immediately to talk about actresses that Liam liked. It’s a good tactic—he’s talking, but deflecting it from himself, in the hopes that the interviewer won’t notice that he didn’t actually answer the question.
  2. Unfortunately, the interviewer noticed. She directly pressed him with “and how about you, Harry?” He then frowned and took a long time to consider his answer, which was:
  3. Emily Blunt. A married actress in her 30s, known mostly for indie movies and a few small mainstream parts. While she’s a lovely woman, her career has never been about sex appeal even when she was younger. She’s a nice, safe choice: a fine actress, and very unlikely to cause gossip or tabloid articles if Harry mentions her.
  4. Harry’s not necessarily 100% gay, but even if he is, gay men can admire female performers! In fact, it’s so common that many female performers are known as outright gay icons. (see: Judy Garland and the Friends of Dorothy). It doesn’t make anyone any less gay. Harry can like women without liking women, just like straight people can be fans of people their own gender. He doesn’t have to say “no hetero!” for us to know that.
  5. Also notice that Louis also did not intend to answer the question. It was Niall that brought up Louis’ old standard answer of Natalie Portman, because it was apparently Niall’s turn to be the het police in this interview.

Harry is going to talk about women sometimes. First, because he’s asked about women constantly, and he can’t dodge every question. Second, because women make up 50% of the world’s population (and we’re freaking awesome), so it’s inevitable that Harry will have friends, acquaintances, and be a fan of people who happen to be female. He’s a feminist, with strong attachments to the women in his family, and plenty of female friends. None of that is any reason to think he’s totall heterosexual when he has made such an effort to tell the world that he’s really not. 

So that was a lot of babbling, but I hope it eased your discomfort at least a little bit. I’m happy to talk more, so feel free to message me whenever, either on anon or off. :-)

anonymous asked:

How are you? Hope you don't mind but I have yet another prompt for you: Sterek in school, stiles is silly and it's on the club who writes the school paper and had to interview grumpy basketball captain derek only, derek misunderstood him for a noisy person/fan so he keeps evading him, cue stalking on stiles part because he *has* to get the interview done, yep, that's the only reason, *sweats nervously*. <3

I changed it a little bit, hope you don’t mind.

“So, Derek.” Stiles practically threw himself against the locker next to where Derek was going through his own, only wincing a little because ow. “When are you gonna let me interview you?”

He had been trying to get the captain of the basketball team to sit down with him for an interview for the school paper for weeks now, but he kept getting the “I’m busy” excuse thrown in his face. Being on the school paper was great credit and getting an interview with the star player would only make what he was doing more impressive, which was exactly what he needed since he was no longer on any sports team himself.

That and Derek Hale was really attractive, and Stiles wouldn’t mind spending an hour or two looking at that face. If only he could actually get those two hours. Every time he asked, Derek would run away, and it was getting pretty annoying.

Derek shot Stiles a look and groaned, grabbing his books and slamming his locker shut. “I told you, I’m busy,” he said and hurried to walk down the hallway.

anonymous asked:

Stephen has been very vocally pro-Olicity in the last week. If love to hear you thoughts on why this is considering, despite his own personal opinion, he has firmly maintained a neutral stance since S2, with the exception of one SDCC interview. I'm wondering if there is concern amongst the ranks that Olicity fans either won't tune without Oliver on screen in present day or because we suspect difficult times are ahead considering some recent spoilers. Thoughts all knowing Olicity goddess?

Anonymous said: First off, Happy Arrow Wednesday! We made it!! I just need to flail a bit about the fact that Jimmy Kimmel brought up Felicity/Olicity in Stephen’s interview. This is HUGE. His interview wasn’t very long and the fact that Olicity was talked about at all is such a big big deal. Those topics are predetermined. Olicity is so powerful that it was discussed on national television. Such an awesome way to start this Arrow Wednesday!! What are your thoughts on his interview? Thx!

Our Captain sure is chatty lately isn’t he?

My thoughts on the Kimmel interview are here. I stand by the gifs.

I actually disagree with the assertion that Stephen has maintained neutrality since S2. Every interview is different and the nuances in every interview are incredibly important. The way the question is phrased is vital - especially when discussing ship wars.

Yes, obviously Stephen has always been supportive of Olicity since day one - it’s why he’s our Captain. Everyone knows that his personal opinion definitely slants towards that ship and a belief that Oliver’s true love is Felicity.  However, he has always adamantly refused to say one way or the other which ship he prefers - Lauriver or Olicity. And it’s for understandable reasons.

I’m teasing about Stephens “I don’t give a fuck about ship wars” attitude. I don’t actually think that’s what’s going on. I think the interviewers have just finally gotten smart. I know. Miracles can happen.

In all of these interviews this past let’s just say couple weeks, because Stephen’s been on a media blitz promoting 3x10, there are a couple interviews that come to mind - Access Hollywood, TVLine, EW, Jimmy Kimmel and of course the great SDCC interview.

Do you want to know what all of these interviews have in common? NONE, I repeat, NONE are asking Stephen for his personal opinion. They are asking Stephen about OLIVER’S feelings and what’s going on the show. The answer is simple - there’s one love and that’s Felicity. BOOM.

I think the why is best addressed in the TVLine article. Hero’s stories are different in the romance department because they typically choose ONE main love interest for the hero. It’s not necessary for a love triangle or a bevvy of love interests, because the conflict doesn’t stem from romance. The conflict stems from outside factors - by the hero’s journey. So it enables the writers to be a bit more honest about the hero’s true feelings, without needing to pull the will they/won’t they trigger. Also…it’s just the way hero’s stories roll. Take it up with Homer.

Arrow is in its 3rd season. They know what works and what doesn’t. As the other Anon so elegantly pointed out - what was brought up on Jimmy Kimmel was incredibly important. This interview was big - national television, late night. And Olicity was one of the main topics. Kimmel’s team does their research and and topics are predetermined, so yes…Olicity is hugely important and a driving factor on the show. Everyone knows that. The writers, producers, actors and even the media. Everyone is on board. So, what’s the point of dancing around it anymore? The show isn’t. The show has definitely made Oliver’s choice - it is Felicity. And it’s obvious Felicity loves Oliver. As Stephen elogquently points out - it’s not love but circumstance is the issue for these two lovebirds. Typical of any hero story (Looking at you Superman!!!).

So this provides Stephen with a great deal of freedom and a hell of a lot of cover. He can be more honest not because he’s choosing a personal preference but because THE SHOW HAS.

They are not promoting Olicity because the writers/producers are concerned that fans aren’t going to watch or because there’s more trouble in the water. They’ve been promoting Olicity since this summer. They’ve got research in hand, the ratings are proof - Olicity is popular among the fan base. It drives ratings. It makes the show money. That’s why it’s trotted out like a pretty pony at a horse show every interview. It’s the sparkly diamond the fans want to  ”ooh and aaah” over. That’s what peaks our interest. That’s one of the reasons we watch/read the interviews. Olicity doesn’t simply give Arrow traction among viewers - it gains the media outlet traction as well.

Bottom line? Whether Oliver & Felicity are together or not, the show has chosen a lane. The love story of Arrow is Oliver & Felicity. And that’s the way they are going to promote it. Which means…that’s the way Stephen promotes it.

Which, believe me, makes our Captain very very happy.

 
5SOS Preference #1- Jealousy
  • Ashton: (Your POV) You watched your feet as you walked, the sun shining in your eyes. Ashton's hand was wrapped tightly around yours as we walked. He smiled down at you.
  • He was about to speak when a group of teenage girls quickly rushed over, squealing and yelling Ashton's name.
  • One of the particularly very pretty girls rushed over to him first with a big smile on her face. The other girls crowded all the way around him, making you be pushed aside.
  • You narrowed your eyes, half because the sun was still in your eyes and half because of the jealously in the pit of your stomach.
  • The girl who got to him first, pulled a pen out of her purse and smiled sweetly at him.
  • "I, uh, don't have any paper on me, but you could sign something else?" She suggested.
  • Ashton looked confused at first, but once she started to spread her shirt collar wider so he could sign her chest, he got the picture.
  • He cleared his throat awkwardly and if you saw correctly, his cheeks turned a little pink.
  • You rolled your eyes and looked away. Normally, you don't think you would care about this, but the fact that you were literally just a few feet away from him, it made everything just a totally different story. And being tired and hot didn't help your mood either.
  • After her, he signed autographs for the other girls, who luckily did have paper.
  • You stood on the sidelines until he was done, then he walked back over to you.
  • "Hey, you ready to go?" He asked
  • "Yeah." You muttered and looked away from him.
  • "You okay?" He asked, taking your hand in his.
  • "Yeah, I'm totally fine." You said sarcastically.
  • You both stay silent for most of the time walking home until he spoke once again.
  • "You're jealous, aren't you?" He asked with a sly smirk placed on his face.
  • You looked away from him. "Maybe." You grumbled.
  • He just laughed and pulled you closer by you waist and kissed the top of your head.
  • Luke: It was your one year anniversary with Luke and were trying your best to get ready on time. Luke said he was taking you to some fancy restaurant and to wear something nice. So you put on your nicest dress, your favorite pair of heels and did make-up as best as you could. Once you were finished, you walked downstairs where Luke was waiting for you.
  • Once you were half way down the stairs, Luke, who was waiting by the door, looked up at you and smiled.
  • "God, you look beautiful." He breathed as you made your way towards him. You smiled at him and he placed his hands on your waist. He leaned down and started kissing you. Suddenly the kiss got too heated and, unfortunately you had to pull away.
  • "We have reservations." You said.
  • "We could just stay home," He suggested. "And do something else." He smirked.
  • You rolled your eyes and pulled away so his hands weren't on your waist anymore.
  • "Nope. Let's go." You said with a smile and you were out the door.
  • Once you got to the restaurant, you signed in your name for your reservation and made your way to your seat.
  • You both chatted for awhile until your waiter came.
  • "Hello, I'm Alex and I'll be your waiter today. Do you know what you'd like?" You both told him what you'd like to order and he smiled. Then he looked at you before leaving. "And by the way Miss, you look beautiful this evening." Then he turned to leave.
  • You blushed a little and smiled at the compliment. But Luke looked rather pissed.
  • "What's the matter?" You asked and took a sip of your drink.
  • "I don't like him." He grumbled.
  • "What? Our waiter? I think he's nice." You defended.
  • He rolled his eyes and didn't continue the conversation.
  • The waiter's flirty attitude continued throughout the night. He made subtle compliments to you, made jokes, and it seemed to you that he made the most ludicrous reasons to come to your table and talk. Which didn't make Luke any happier.
  • At the end of the night the waiter, Alex, left the check on your table. When he sat it down, he looked to you and gave you a little wink. You grabbed the check to look at it. Everything seemed normal until you looked at the bottom of the paper. In his handwriting was a phone number and 'call me'. Luke saw this and muttered something you couldn't make out.
  • "Okay, that tears it." He said and was about to get up.
  • You quickly put your hand on his and softly spoke.
  • "Luke, it's okay. I'm never going to see this guy again. Just calm down."
  • He looked at you and slowly sat down. "I just don't like when people flirt with you. It makes me jealous..." He trailed off.
  • You smirked a little. "There's no reason to be jealous. I'm yours and only yours."
  • Michael: You were applying the last of your lipstick and doing the final touches on your hair. Michael was taking you to a party later today and you were making sure you looked your best. Finally you were done and got to leave.
  • You weren't really much a party person. So you've been to, maybe, 2 parties in your whole life. And those parties usually consisted of 30-40 people. This party was going to contain a whole lot more.
  • You were resting your head on your hand and looking through the window. Suddenly you heard music playing faintly. You turned to the radio and saw that it wasn't on. Then you realized that must have been the party. You also realized you were like a block away from the party. This was going to be one hell of an experience, you thought.
  • When you finally arrived there, you were certain that was the music you were hearing. The number of the people at the parties you were at was probably the same number of kids outside.
  • You both got out of the car and walked inside. Michael kept a protective arm around your waist the whole time.
  • Most of the time, you were following Michael around and making sure you knew where he was. Then around midnight, about the time you guys were about to leave, he had to use the bathroom.
  • You sat down and looked over the sight in front of you. The majority of the teenagers were making out by now or doing something far worse in public, so you averted your eyes to your lap.
  • Someone ended up taking a seat next to you. A guy. He smiled at you.
  • "What's a pretty girl like you doing here all by yourself." He asked with a smirk.
  • "Actually, uh, I have a boyfriend. He's in the bathroom." You said awkwardly.
  • He smiled. "Well, I can tell by looking at you, that he's lucky to have you." He smiled.
  • Unlike the rest of the people here, this guy seemed totally sober.
  • You felt yourself blush. "Thanks." You smiled.
  • You both ended up striking up a conversation when Michael came back.
  • "Hi, I'm ba- Who's this?" He said eying the guy up and down.
  • The guy smiled. "Hi, I'm Charlie, and you must be her boyfriend."
  • "Yeah, I am." He said, still eying him intensely.
  • "Well, I'll go. Nice meeting you." He said to you and walked off.
  • Once he was gone, Michael looked at you. "Why were you talking to him?" He questioned.
  • You shrugged. "He just sat by me and started talking."
  • "Did he try anything with you?" He asked with a raised eyebrow.
  • You scoffed a little. "No! Nothing happened." You said with a light laugh. "Are you jealous?" You asked.
  • "No." He defended. "I just don't like when other guys talk to you when I'm not here."
  • "That's called being jealous, Michael." You said.
  • "No, that's called loving you and me not wanting you to break up with me." He said.
  • "Okay, okay." You said with a laugh, but then quickly muttered, "No, that's called being jealous."
  • Calum: "So, Calum, how's your girlfriend, Y/N?" The interviewer asked in her sweet voice.
  • You were sitting off in the audience at one of their interviews. You never got to do this before, so to be honest, to you this was pretty exciting.
  • Calum smiled at the mention of your name. "She's doing pretty well." He said. "I can't really speak for her, but from what I know she's doing well." He smiled and looked over at you. You gave him a wave and a small wink.
  • "So, Y/N is definitely very lucky to have you, isn't she?" The interviewer asked again. Suddenly becoming very flirty.
  • "Uh, well actually I think it's the other way around. I think I'm really lucky to have her." He smiled.
  • The interviewer smiled. "Well, I know that she's certainly very lucky to have you, also."
  • The interviewer's flirty attitude continued through the interview. And the weird thing was, it was only towards Calum.
  • You said there uncomfortably for most of the interview. You tried everything to keep yourself from running up there.
  • Once the interview was over, Calum walked towards you.
  • "Wow, she must really like me." He joked about the interviewer.
  • "Yeah." You muttered, looking down.
  • "Hey, everything okay? He asked bringing my chin up.
  • "Yeah, it just bothers me that she was flirting with you." You mumbled again.
  • "Hey, it's okay. There's no reason to be jealous or anything. I love you, you know that. Nothing could ever change that."

i'm not the anon asking about the farro brothers but i've never really heard the 'true' story for them leaving, care to explain?

Ok, I’ve decided I AM going to publish this, after all. It’s just the links to things and what all I remember that happened. I’m not going to share my full thoughts on the matter. This is the one time I’ll do this. Do with the information what you will.

This is Josh’s exit statement. It says it’s for both Josh and Zac, but it’s pretty much just Josh’s feelings and Zac didn’t give much input, I don’t think, at that time.

This is Hayley, Taylor and Jeremy’s response; an hour long exclusive interview with MTV called “The Last Word”, where they got to tell their side of the story and explain. Watch this entire interview. It’s all very important as it is the most important stuff that ended up being the evolution of Paramore into what they are today.

Right after Josh and Zac announced they were leaving, Hayley made her now famous “Paramore is STILL a band” tweet. It was sad. But hopeful.

And about tweets, Josh made several tweets over the first couple of years since he left that were indirect digs at the band. For example, the day Monster was released in 2011, he tweeted “for what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?”, a quote from the Bible (from the book of Matthew) bitterly mocking the words of the song, Monster, that say “now that you’re gone, the world is ours”, words in which Hayley was clearly talking about Josh. The message from Josh’s tweet, in essence, calling Paramore (or Hayley) depraved or sinful. ..There are more examples, but that’s the most blatent one I can think of.

Josh and Zac also made a video of Josh pretending to play the keyboard where he was clearly making fun of Hayley. and then, he knocked the keyboard over (which Hayley did once on-stage on purpose) making it clear he was mocking her. Zac can be heard laughing hysterically throughout the video.

Anyway, that’s all there is about …THAT. Since then, Josh has not said any more about it or made any new music, despite his assurance throughout 2010 and 2011 that he was working hard on doing so. Novel American has had some troubles “finding a singer”, which I found ironic and amusing, to be honest. Today, he is married with 2 cats, and is quite active on twitter and vine.

Zac has mentioned some stuff about Paramore in recent interviews. I don’t have links but I’m sure they’re easy to find. He’s been making music and doing small tours with his new band, Half Noise. And he has spent time with his old friend, Taylor, a couple of times.

I think what makes me the most sad is that we may not see Darren and Chris together again. Sure, we'll see them interacting with their other co-stars but if they hang out, we may never hear about it. All because of one small (and loud) portion of the fandom. I'm gonna miss their friendship lots.

You know I’ve gotten a lot of asks like this over the last few years - From frustration at the beyond utterly ridiculous and yet still twitter-ly present tinhatting (same same me too yes 100% agree), to wondering if Darren and Chris are even friends at all or not, given the clear very specific and deliberate decision to keep virtually all their social interactions out of the public’s eye (Chris even said to a fan in the summer that he and Darren will not tweet about klaine at the same time because their twitter feeds get too crazy and Darren and Chris both said again in the 6.08 bts that they have to stay off twitter…and I think with Chris specifically, he has clearly removed almost all social interaction (not just with Darren, but everyone) from twitter to I’m sure keep the crazy away.

anonymous asked:

don't you think it's super weird how the rest of the cast didn't retweet cam's tweet about noel leaving after the finale or said anything about him? and how noel himself is staying silent? at this point I'm not in denial about him leaving anymore but I think the way it's happening is really odd.

i’ll preface this by airing an unpopular opinion and saying that i am in denial, haha. it’s probably wrong for me to be, and my repudiation has nothing to do with the fact that i don’t trust the source, or Noel, because i do. the whole affair - i mean, the conduct of everyone associated with the show - smells off to me, though, to be quite honest. i wasn’t going to comment, because i don’t really want to contribute to the upset and wank, but nor do i want to leave this unanswered. so.

i find the whole twitter debacle incredibly odd. i find it strange that the tweets were delayed. i find it strange that no one has commented on Noel’s departure, the final episode, the season as a whole, etc. there’s been radio silence overall. the fact that Sheila Callaghan has commented, too -  she really shouldn’t have. at the end of the day, the writers are just another cog in a very large machine. the powers that be - the executives, managers, etc - of the network have almost as much influence over the show as the writers do, and she has little say or opinion. to me, it was an attention-seeking move designed to provoke a response.

following the issue of marketing strategies - i don’t think Noel would intentionally mislead a fan, but at the same time, we’re not privy to the broader picture. we don’t know what’s changed. he could have signed a contract for season 6 but a nondisclosure statement with it to state that he has to tell fans that he’s not returning. maybe TPTB are preventing Noel from returning and not renewing his contract and it’s actually got nothing to do with him. maybe it is what it is and he’s simply decided he’s not interested in continuing to pursue a role in a show that clearly doesn’t appreciate him.

to be completely honest, though, as much as i trust the source (i don’t know her personally, but she’s been vouched for by people i trust), we have little to go on but a vocal exchange that wasn’t recorded. i’m not debating that Noel didn’t say what he did, but the testament does not hold much weight. until Noel, or an official from the show, publicly states in a written format (however formal or informal; whether it be on twitter, or a transcribed or recorded interview, etc) that he is not returning for whatever reason, i’m going to be in ‘denial’ - albeit i’m not sure denial is the right word. at this stage, i’m pretty beyond hope, but my logical brain has kicked in and the evidence doesn’t add up. the explanations we are being offered are very limited and i don’t have much vested in them. i’m not saying i’m expecting anything, because i’m not, but. can i hope for common decency?

i respect that people want to throw in the towel now, and as a method of protection prefer to believe that Noel isn’t returning, or just seriously believe that he isn’t, and that’s fine, too! we all have our truths; the concept of objective truth is debated for a reason. i also know we’d like to think that writers and tptb have sentimental attachment to the fans and the show, but at the end of the day, it’s called ‘show business’ for a reason. they’re out to make money; we have emotional investment. we don’t really know a lot. we’re making assumptions based on extremely limited evidence; a lot of heavy implications with little backing them. 

i’m mostly upset for the fandom, at this stage. we don’t deserve any of this. we have been disrespected right from the get-go, and i’m exceedingly sorry for that. at the end of the day, that’s my primary takeaway - but admittedly, it’s not the first time a TV show has let me down, and nor will it be the last. this is just a particularly bitter arsenic-laced apple to have to swallow. this fandom is one of the best and loveliest i’ve experienced and i hope we can manage to hold some of that together, hope or hopelessness aside.

What do you think about having three books crammed into season 3? I think Bryan is wonderful and creative and I'm also really excited about the potential of getting the 'Silence' plot-line (in whatever form) but I'm a little concerned about telling 'Red Dragon' in roughly six episodes and both 'Hannibal' and 'Hannibal Rising' in seven. Seems like an awful lot, especially when we have original content to factor in...

Bryan started saying way back in November or something that he only thought Red Dragon could carry through six episodes, so that’s not really a shock if it comes to that. I think he may be considering Hannibal half-done already, since he used up a large part of the latter half of that in S2, and the first half of it seems to be going to be finished by 305 now. And Hannibal Rising may only have been meant to be a single episode all along. Enough to find out what happened, and that’s it. Here’s what Bryan has said for S3 so far.

  • 301 The Talented Mr. Ripley (Hannibal and Bedelia)
  • 302 Don’t Look Now (Will and probably Abigail)
  • 303 Death and the Maiden (Murasaki and probably Will)
  • 304 Kill Bill (the FBI & Cordell & the missing year)
  • 305 Hannibal (bye, bye, Pazzi)

306-307 might take care of the other loose ends from Hannibal (catching Hannibal, eating Kade Prurnell’s brains, stuff like that). 

If 308 introduces Dolarhyde, we might get Hannibal shenanigans with him in 309, Will’s pact with Freddie in 310, Freddie on fire for reals by 311, the case solved in 312, and Will’s face cut up by 313 (enjoy).

(I don’t know at what point they’ll kill Chilton this year.)

It’s not too short of a time to do any of this stuff, keeping in mind that they made around two hour movies from the source texts with reasonable success, and we’d have about four hours to work with in this format. So I’m sure they can do the material justice and not be treading water at all in the pacing of the story.

However, I’m not super thrilled with it in terms of satisfying my expectations for original content, given that that’s what’s compelled us all into liking the show initially, and that’s mostly what we’ve gotten up through now, with a few exceptions. I wouldn’t mind at all if they slowed down to flesh out some of this stuff with some original ideas. Where does Molly fit in? What about Alana’s place in the story?
