if you didn't watch it yet

You know, if I’m a King, where’s my power? Can I… can I form a government? Can I… can I levy a tax, declare a… a war? No! And yet, I am the seat of all authority. Why? Because… the nation believes that when I speak, I speak for them – but I can’t speak.

The King’s Speech (2010) dir. Tom Hooper.

Watching Fantastic Beasts: #1
  • Jacob: Let me get this straight:
  • Jacob: You're incredibly powerful at reading minds, even without that wand doohickey,
  • Jacob: and yet they've got you in the basement and fetching the COFFEE???
  • Jacob: Why aren't YOU running this joint?
  • Queenie: ...
  • Queenie: ...now I'm even more willing to blow this popsicle stand.

You know how hard that was.
Gibbs was wrong. I did not want you to find me. And yet you did.


I have to say this: 

I LOVE THIS REVEAL.

SO. SO. MUCH.

I was spoiled rotten for this scene because I’d been seeing the gifs on Tumblr for like six months before I got to this episode (god there are a lot of episodes of this show), but if I had been watching this in real time? I would have been fist-pumping the hell out of this.

YOU GUYS TONY WAS JUST FOOLING GIBBS HE FOUND HER HE ALWAYS FINDS HER SHE’S RIGHT BEHIND HIM PSYYYYYYYYCH.

It’s just so… cool. I mean yes, everything is about to be awful and I hate it etc., but I do love the way this episode is shot, at least visually-speaking. Like in this scene, from the tight shot on Tony at the computer with MTAC, then his speaking to his companion off-camera and the ultimate pan to Ziva standing at the other end of the porch.

Again, it’s terrible, but at the same time, the tension between them is kind of fun (in an awful way), because there is so much going on. Tony’s divided loyalties between honoring Ziva’s wishes and keeping Gibbs apprised of his progress. And Ziva’s apparent irritation with him over him crashing at her place, when it’s also obvious there’s much more going on– fear, sadness, and even a little happiness that he’s there, even though she knows she shouldn’t be. (Because not even she could tell him that she didn’t want him there with any kind of conviction, let’s be real.)

I’m gonna say this a lot in the next dozen posts, but Michael Weatherly and Cote de Pablo act the hell out of this episode, and I love them in this scene. Tony and Ziva both know that they shouldn’t be doing this (for different reasons), but as always, they can’t help themselves. Their pull towards each other is just too strong, despite their best laid plans otherwise. 

(This also makes me wish we could have seen them do more undercover-type missions together, or us-against-the-world type stuff, but we can’t have nice things.)

Anyway.

This is the level on nonsense you can expect for the next couple of days. Equal parts “THEY’RE SO PRETTY!” and “EEEEEEVERYBODY HUUUUURTS SOOOMETIMES.”

  • Bucky: remember when you spent our train money in hot dogs?

  • Bucky: sorry I don't remember
  • Steve: you called her Dot
  • Bucky: doesn't ring any bells
  • Steve: her hair was red
  • Bucky: I don't recall
  • Steve: and in that date you wanted specifically to buy her a stuffed bear
  • Bucky: I have no idea who you're talking about
  • Steve: you took hours to get ready, you were wearing that shirt that showed off your biceps
  • Bucky: how do you remember so much about that day?
  • Steve: *sweating and nervously laughing, thinking about the small notebook he had with all Bucky's dates described in deep detail and also a drawing of Bucky in the outfit he chose to wear that night so he could torture himself more properly*
  • Bucky: ??
  • Steve: oh, just things a dude would know about his bro

Just some quick cryptid!Rick warm up doodles from this morning.

“Oh god, just tell me you love me even when you don’t,” she begged.
His lungs collapse as he watches their relationship cave in.
“I-“
“Tell me tomorrow,” she interrupted,
She says: “I don’t want it to end yet.”
But she means: “I don’t think I know how to live alone any more.”
“I’ve got to go,” he whispers so low because he is afraid her ribcage might crumble.
Her bones ache trying to support the body of someone so in love and so alone.
—   I love you, but that doesn’t mean it will work. I love you, but that doesn’t mean I’ll stay.
