Based off this that I posted last night regarding the svtfoe season 2 finale, It got some notes so I thought I’d actually play it
“I thought earth was a pretty great place, I fell in love and now I have to leave its face. But now I’ll never again see his smile I wish I could’ve stayed a little while… I met people who I thought I’d never meet and all because I fell and landed at his feet. Maybe it’s all something I made up in my mind, so now it’s time I finally leave this place behind”
Okay so when we first see Beverly go home, we can hear the TV playing in the background right?
Okay so pretty much how the dialog goes is:
Woman: The sewer is a great place to play with ALL of your friends! Just follow the water into the drains and away you go! When you’re with your friends in the sewers you can be as silly as a clown!
Now with a closer look at the TV it is THE SAME SHOW THAT WAS ON RIGHT BEFORE PENNYWISE GOT INTO HENRY BOWERS HEAD WHERE THE WOMAN STOOD UP AND REAVLED PENNYWISE AND STARTED CHANTING “KILL THEM ALL”
So we pretty much got a tip off about what the main source of the problem (Pennywise using the sewers to eat the kiddlings) from about 30 minutes into the film. And to me that is really genius of the writers and shows how much they had payed attention to detail, like that small thing is something I missed until I watched it a second time and then proceeded to loose my shit all over again about how this film is amazing
Like this is reason number 718578191665381 why “IT” (2017) is a fucking bombass movie
(Also just to jog your memory this is the show that was on the tv)
What is the Hulu show about? The one mentioned just recently.
well it is VERY hard to explain and I’m about to go to bed b/c it’s almost 2 AM, but okay. So. Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. It’s like…
The whole show starts out with a violent murder scene, surrounded by a bunch of bizarre and unexplained phenomena. Our MC witnesses some of those phenomena, and then shortly afterward meets Dirk Gently, certified not-exactly-psychic weirdo, who for reasons at this point unknown to basically anybody, is like HELP ME SOLVE A MURDER! And throughout the episodes it starts to come out that not only was the murder just as bizarre as it looked, it was moreso. The world has a certain amount of suspend-disbelief in-built bizarreity that actually reminded me weirdly of Pushing Daisies??? And the MC is played by Elijah Wood??
But actually just overall it’s got a really great cast, and it was pretty damn dark in places but also hilarious as well, and also genuinely heart-wrenching at multiple points? There were great female characters, and great POC characters, and the plot was BIZARRE and full of weird parallels and bookends. ((I’m in love with Farah Black and if you watch it I guarantee you will be too, oh my god.))
…………..also, and this was my very favorite part because it hit basically ALL my fav. tropes, one of the side-plots features a group of joyously rowdy punks with supernatural powers, who also turn out to be basically The Best. They are so??? FULL OF JOY. And anger! Chaotic Neutral! (Chaotic Good?) And they take a character who’s hurting and scared and they just, like. Adopt her?
I’m in love with the Rowdy 3 and the way they go from “LET’S SMASH THIS CAR WITH BASEBALL BATS, YOU WANNA GO?!?!” to “you don’t have to be scared anymore, now sit down and let me put neon green nail paint on you.”
But also Ken and Bart are bizarrely amazing? And Dirk and Todd are really important to me, and Todd’s relationship with his sister Amanda, and the police officers, and Amanda just by herself as a lady with a chronic, invisible, debilitating disease! And, oh, okay, the fact that throughout the WHOLE ENTIRE PLOT there’s just
NOBODY KNOWS WHAT’S GOING ON
literally nobody, no scheming villains with big plans, no all-knowing secretive oracle character, everybody has like two pieces of the puzzle, and it’s weridly hilarious/reassuring to see the entire cast going “WHY THE HELL IS THIS HAPPENING?!?! WHO ARE YOU?? WHO IS THAT?!?! DESTINY OR SOMETHING?! WHY IS THERE A KITTEN?!WHERE DID THAT SHARK COME FR
The urgency Sam hears in a familiar muffled voice jerks him out of a sound sleep. He rubs his tired eyes, confused beyond belief as he scans his unusual surroundings. What the hell? This definitely isn’t the bunker.
“You ok, baby?” Sam’s breathing picks up once his focus is pulled back to who’s laying next to him in bed.
It’s you. For some weird, inexplicable reason you’re wearing one of his old, worn t-shirts and snuggled close to his side. You look just as beautiful as always but there’s also something different about you too. The constant worry that’s usually a fixture in your eyes is gone, as if all the stresses of being a hunter just slipped away.
“Sam.” You place a gentle touch on your husband’s arm unsure if anything else will rattle him.
the second time isak enters even’s room, they’re coming back from school and even is throwing his backpack on the floor and taking his socks off and he holds one of them and pretends he’s about to throw it isak’s way and isak gives him a stern look and warns “don’t you dare”. and even smiles a cheeky smile, says “you know i wouldn’t” and isak breathes out a laughter and shakes his head, replies “no, even, i don’t”. and then even is going through his drawers, a pensive look on his face and grabs black jogging pants and a pastel pink shirt with a teddy bear at the front, hands them to isak. isak unfolds the shirt and raises an eyebrow at even, but he doesn’t protest, decides to play along, takes his shirt off and asks even “where did you get that shirt?” and now even has also changed into something more comfortable and he walks over to isak, hugs him from behind and he sways with him a little and says “flea market last summer, only 20 kroner, total steal for such an iconic fashion piece”. and isak chuckles, turns around and kisses him, quick pecks on his lips
and then even walks over to his loft bed, climbs up the ladder and he’s sitting on the mattress and waiting for isak to join him but isak kind of just. stays there. and even looks down at him and asks “hey, you coming?” and isak walks over to the ladder and holds on to each side and places a foot on the first rung but once again he goes still. and then even is up on his knees and looking down at him and isak is starring at the floor, loose grip on the ladder and even frowns at the sight, asks “hey you, what’s up?” and he gets down as he says the words, isak moving out of the way. isak glances up and chews on his bottom lip and he looks slightly confused and nervous. “it’s just -” he sighs, and even waits, gently presses his forehead against his. “you’re going to think i’m ridiculous but, hm, you see when i was eight, i had this friend and his name was, hm…mattias but, hm, that’s not important. hm, so yeah i went to sleep over to his house once because we had this, hm, football competition over the weekend and so i was supposed to sleep at his place and he had this…bunk bed and i remember when i climbed the ladder, my foot kind of slipped and i, hm, fell”
he lets out another long sigh and even wraps him in a hug, kisses his temple and says “you know, when i was six, i fell from my bicycle and i didn’t want to ride one for the longest time. do you think that was ridiculous of me?” isak is resting chin on even’s shoulder and he whispers “no” and for a second even holds him tighter and he softly says “then why would i think you’re ridiculous?” isak gives a small shrug. “i just haven’t tried to since that one time, you know?” and even replies “well, we can try tonight, if you’re wiling. but we’ve got these extra mattresses too, so it’s really up to you” even lets go of isak and gives him a comforting smile, one that says i see you, it’s alright. and isak can’t help it, runs a hand through even’s hair and smiles back, and a few seconds later he nods towards the bed and says “let’s go”
and so isak goes first and even is right there behind him, a reassuring presence as isak climbs up the ladder, step by step. and when isak is up on the bed, even immediately joins him, tells him “i’m really proud of you” and he kisses isak, slow and affectionate. they remain like this for a while, exchanging words and kisses and delicate touches. and then even runs a finger across isak’s lips and down his neck and then on his shoulder, over the shirt he gave him earlier. even lets out a little laugh and asks “that’s a really cool shirt, where’d you get it?” and isak rolls his eyes, a small smile spread across his face and he says “well, this pretty great guy gave it to me, said he got it for sale or something” and even rubs his nose against his, playfully asks “a pretty great guy, hm?” and isak places a hand on even’s cheek, replies “yeah, he’s incredible actually, and he’s got this really comfortable bed and” isak is looking into even’s eyes and his are filled with appreciation, for what he’s just done and for the person he is, and he adds “i think you’d love him”
