For my beautiful @bellalou5 whose birthday was yesterday, she has give me the beautiful gift of her friendship and I wanted to make something special for her. I know I am a day late but this is for you, Happy belated birthday, sweetie. You’re wonderful and you deserve everything.

He cried, he won’t lie. He cried when he got the acceptance letter. He was going to college, Percy Jackson was going to college. Annabeth and his mom were screaming and cheering while he held the letter in his hands, reading over and over the words.

He never thought this day would come, he honestly thought he didn’t had a chance getting accepted in college, but the proof was in his hands. Percy Jackson was going to start his freshman year in Ithaca next fall.

“You did it, sweetie.” he raised his eyes to meet his mother’s. She was looking at him, she was crying and he bet that if he turned to see Annabeth, she would be crying too. “You got it.”

“I’m going to college, mom,” Sally put her arms around him. “It’s actually happening.”

Growing up with a single mother who worked 3 jobs just so they could survive week by week was nothing he was ashamed of, he was proud of his mother for everything she did for him, but living like that make college not an option. He started working since he was little, first it was little jobs like dog walker or paperboy, jobs that didn’t pay much but they paid for his lunch and his school notebooks and pens.

He tried his best at school but it was hard when he barely slept because of his work and his dyslexia didn’t help him at all, that’s when Annabeth came into the picture. He was failing miserable sixth grade, he was crying in the library, hidden between bookshelves, he had just gotten another F and he had to tell his mom, that’s how Annabeth found him, she sat next to him in silence until she took the failed text from his hand and told him she was going to make him get a B, she did.

Annabeth became his best friend and as sad as it sounded, she was his first friend. She helped him with his homework, even doing his when he had double shifts. Annabeth, unlike him, grow up rich, her parents were divorced so she always got twice of everything, her parents trying to buy her love with material things, even if they never were home or went to her piano recitals.

Annabeth opened a new door for Percy’s life, she helped him with school and she gave him the best gift he could ask for: friendship. Annabeth became close with friends a year younger than them, and those friends soon became his friends too.

High school started and Percy got a new job at a small café not far away from his place. His situation at home was getting a little better, his mom had gotten a better job and they moved out to a better apartment. Sally had two jobs now and had more free time, while Percy had a job that gave him a better income, but it wasn’t enough for college, he knew it and Sally knew it, she always apologized for it but Percy didn’t hold it against her. He didn’t mind not going to college and he was okay with that decision.

Annabeth convinced him to join the swimming team in their sophomore year and that’s when the small window of hope opened. He was really good at swimming and with time he started listening to his couch drop the “swimming scholarship” more and more often. But still he didn’t want to let hope in his heart, he didn’t want to try and believe he could make it only to have his dream crushed, he always knew college wasn’t for him, but now? Now he couldn’t afford to think different.

But Sally and Annabeth thought different and they begged him to try, they believed in him, they knew he could make it, why he couldn’t see it?. Annabeth dragged him to colleges, asking him to please considerate, he was smart and he was talented and he could help the sea life if he studied marine biology. So he did, he applied, because Annabeth and Sally wanted him to, and they were his girls, how he could say no to them? He couldn’t lose anything, he had his mind set on not going to college.

But now, now he had a letter in his hand telling him he had a swimming scholarship and they were more than happy to have him in their college next fall.

“I had to go to Ithaca and look for jobs near campus,” Percy said.

Annabeth laughed. “As long as it is closer to Cornell than your campus. I want you near me.”

“Greedy, aren’t you? You will have me in the same town, now I have to be extra close to your campus?” Percy said.

“Now kids, you two will have time for that later,” Sally said. “We have to call Paul and tell him we are going to go out for dinner.”

“Mom! No.”

“I’m not taking no as an answer. My baby boy is going to college, the hell I’m not going to celebrate it.”

“Annabeth, you support me, right?”

“My boyfriend just got accepted into college, I kinda feel like celebrating it,” Annabeth said and Sally gave her a high five.

Percy wanted to argue about spending money in something as silly as taking him for dinner, but Annabeth and Sally had this huge smiles on their faces, smiles he was sure he was mirroring, and against all odds and against what most of his teachers thought, he got accepted into college. Sure, it was not a full scholarship like Annabeth’s but it was a pretty sweet scholarship indeed and for one night, he allowed himself not think about money and the future and just celebrate that he was going to college.

  • He's starting to get out of the car but Robin holds his arm to keep him in place
  • R: Seriously, does it? Bother you I mean?

ok so a squirrel LITERALLY CLIMBED ON MY LAP TODAY and tried to steal my lunch. So now i'm just imagining tony out on a break (maybe a college au?) when a squirrel climbs on his lap while steve (or bucky or sam or anyone really, not super picky) stares with heart eyes trying not to look like a creeper

LMFAO I remember during a college tour in HS, we were at Sac State and the squirrels there are LITERALLY THAT FEARLESS.

So some weird HS-AU where Tony’s on aforementioned Sac State college tour. IDK why he’s attending school like normal despite being a genius… oooh, okay, so in this AU Maria left Howard because of Reasons that we can All Guess At, and didn’t have the money to really send Tony to any fancy boarding schools that included skipping grades, and she didn’t want him to feel alienated even more than he already did by putting him with such older children, so.

The tour wrapped up with them near the food hall, just in time for them to eat lunch before getting on the bus to head over to Davis.

Bucky walked along next to Steve and Sam. They were debating what to get - burgers and fries or sandwiches or something even more fun like nachos or whatever - but Bucky really wasn’t paying much attention. He’d get whatever Steve got.

Instead, he was watching Tony Carbonell.

I Saw The Light review

Okay, so here are some more put together thoughts about the movie. Although honestly this will probably be more about the performances in the film rather than the film itself. 

If you want a tl;dr version here is my final say: the movie really isn’t the best and suffers with poor editing and pacing. Also if you don’t know a lot about Hank and his life then you will be lost. Having said that the performances, especially Tom Hiddleston, is what shines in this and is a beautiful thing to watch. Do I love this film? No. But I will love the amazing and powerful performances that the actors gave us. It’s really about them, not the movie in and of itself.

You can see my other posts for more/different spoilers here:

I think Homeboy Hiddles deserves an Academy Award nod

Newborn babies + your faves

My mini review of the film here

The garage door scene

How many songs does he sing in the film? (has High-Rise stuff in there too)

When Audrey tells Hank she’s pregnant

So first off this was the closing gala film of VIFF, so before the movie even started there were a lot of speeches and some awards handed out before the movie even started. It didn’t take too long, thankfully and before the film started they actually announced that Marc Abraham, the director of ISTL, was here and he came on stage to present it. I took a quick pic just for whatever reason:

Before that they announced they had a very special guest with them to present the film and I know that if homeboy wasn’t in London with High-Rise then I may have died of anticipation to know who it would be.

Anyway, on to the film. As I touched on the subject in my mini review post the film itself isn’t the greatest, unfortunately. It really does suffer from a lot of bad pacing and editing. I feel like this film is meant for really major Hank Williams fans who know about his life because there’s a lot they jump to though the years with no explanation whatsoever. A lot of parts I was left with ‘wait, what’s going on?’ or ‘when did he do that or get to that point’. The director explained it himself that this wasn’t about the stage or his singing career exclusively, but about Hank Williams and his life, about pulling back the curtain about who the man was.

Well they did it, but unless you knew some of it already it wouldn’t make sense. If you are a new fan to Hank Williams music or have been a casual fan and just listen to his stuff without knowing a lot about him, then I feel like this is where a lot of the problems lie. This is obviously a film where if you were a hardcore fan of his you would appreciate it a lot more.

WARNING: SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT.
