Episode 1 - New Beginnings - END NOTES

so normally in mmbcs you post end notes. i forgot until now. so here we go, several days later. yes


Anyways, thank you guys for all the support through this episode! I’m very thankful for all the replies and people reading my posts. (speaking of replies, they’re coming up after this!) It means a lot, and I’m very excited to continue this challenge!

Of course there were some bumps in the road too. For example my game started crashing, which you guys helped me solving. also i had to play episode 1 twice, because first time i forgot to set Em’s attraction. She ended up only liking the people who are in-game male. so i had to do it again. yesh. 

ANYWAYS! Relationship scores under the cut!

Had such a great time taking @spazzeon​ around Burbank and Little Tokyo. There’s so much more to see, I wish I could have a follower friend field trip with shopping sprees at each destination.

I also had a good grounding experience at the crystal shop. I hadn’t been in so long since I usually don’t let myself in because… I mean. A store full of crystals can be powerful and makes me like

But I felt I really connected with the tarot card reader and the employee working the counter. I told them about my recent spine shenanigans and they were so blown away that one of them wanted the doc’s number. We laughed a lot about life being about dem crystals and shit.

Also it’s strange adjusting to telling people that my status went from “permanently ill” to “at the beginning of a mysterious and long road to recovery where anything is possible”.

Like my story no longer stops at “I got sicker and sicker until everything changed and now I just deal with it because I don’t have a choice. That’s just life. Boo hoo.”

She Should Be
  • **221B Baker Street. Sherlock and Archie are sitting on the couch, with his laptop on the coffee table in front of them. Rosie is dozing in her Moses basket next to Sherlock.**
  • Archie: *browses through crime scene photos* Is Dr Hooper coming over?
  • Sherlock: *on his phone* Yes. *glances at Archie with a smile* Molly's promised to bring a heart after work. We're experimenting on it once your parents pick you up.
  • Archie: *nods* My mum watches this show called 'Murdoch Mysteries'. It's about Detective Murdoch, who's like you if you were a Canadian copper in the old-timey era.
  • Sherlock: What kind of 'old-timey' era? Regency? Victorian? Edwardian?
  • Archie: Victorian, I think.
  • Sherlock: *types on his phone* What about this Murdoch character?
  • Archie: He uses new, scientific methods to solve murders, just like on 'CSI'. But his methods are only called that cos they're in the Victorian era and his boss prefers old-school ways of solving murders.
  • Sherlock: *puts his phone down next to his laptop* What does that have to do with Molly coming over later?
  • Archie: Detective Murdoch has a girlfriend. She looks at the corpses at crime scenes and works on them at the morgue to find out what killed them and stuff. They get along great as friends. She supports him all the time, and he trusts her skills and knowledge. She helps him out a lot too. Dr Ogden's like Dr Hooper. That's why she's your girlfriend!
  • Sherlock: *stares at Archie* Molly isn't my girlfriend!
  • Archie: *turns to Sherlock* She's not?! *stares at the photo of a severed head* *frowns* Oh. *glances at Sherlock and shrugs* She should be.
  • Molly: *walks in carrying a small cooler* Hello, boys! *looks sheepish when Rosie starts to fuss* Whoops! *goes over to the basket to pick up the crying baby* Sorry, Rosie!
  • Sherlock: *stands up* *takes the cooler from Molly* She'll need feeding soon, so I'll go warm her bottle.
  • Sherlock & Molly: *work together to change Rosie's nappies, feed her, and put her back to sleep*
  • Archie: *opens folder of more gruesome photos* *mumbles to himself* Yep, she's his girlfriend.
  • **Later, after the Watsons and Archie's parents pick up the kids.**
  • Sherlock: *gathers Molly in his arms and kisses her*
  • Molly: *kisses him back after a moment* *gives him a shocked look when they come up for air* Wh-what was that for?!
  • Sherlock: *smirks* Archie helped me realise something.
  • Molly: Realise what?
  • Sherlock: That you should be my girlfriend. Or wife, if you pref––Mmmmmmmph!
  • Molly: *snogs the daylights out of him*
  • sherlock fandom @ the beginning of the series: whoa this is such a cool show!! amazing mysteries!!! so much fun, 10/10 would totally recommend :)))
  • sherlock fandom now: *endless theories about all of the characters being dead, approximately 0% trust when it comes to anything, rocking back and forth, dragging friends into this hell simply not to suffer alone, basically we are all anderson from ep7*
MONSTA X as types of New Year’s kisses

Happy New Year everyone!! I hope 2017 treats everyone well, and that you all stay happy and healthy throughout :))


SHOWNU: he’s the platonic best friend you bring along as your default date to the new years party, and when you realize the ball is about to drop, he’s already got you in his arms, ready to give you the new year’s kiss of a lifetime. did i say platonic best friend?? he’s your boyfriend now, whoops.

WONHO: the single and lonely gather at a club for new year’s eve, and in the crowd full of sleazes as the ball is dropping, wonho is the mysterious, non-sleaze, who begins making his way over to you for a kiss. after the shouts of “happy new year!!!”, you realize you didn’t even catch his name.

MINHYUK: the “we just met but really get along” kiss. you arrive alone to the annual party, and minhyuk the social butterfly is making his rounds. he stops when he gets to you though, and you two talk all night. when it’s smooching time, you both just sort of shrug and go for it. somehow, he also convinces you to go on a date next weekend. you’re up for it, obviously.

KIHYUN: this new years eve, you were staying in. so was your neighbor kihyun. when you both realized you were staying in, you decided to hang out together for the new year. the kiss was expected, because you’d been flirting all night, but it was still a split second decision on his part to lean in, and boy is he glad he risked it.

HYUNGWON: your boyfriend hyungwon never wants to go out, but luckily, neither do you. so as you’re both laying in bed, drifting off slightly, you notice that the clock has rolled around to 12:01am, and you nudge him, pointing to your lips. he happily obliges, and the new year comes in lazily.

JOOHEON: okay so you’re both a little buzzed, and you’re not quite sure who decided to invite your ex to the party, but jealousy is a dangerous thing, and as the clock is about to strike twelve, you grab the nearest guy, make sure your ex is looking, and plant one on him. your ex doesn’t seem to casre too much, but no you have a cute guys number saved in your phone under “jooohoooney!!”

I.M: you’ve been on a couple dates with him, technically the new year’s party is number 4. to put it bluntly, you haven’t done anything more than hold hands. changkyun is  very shy, but he musters up the courage to kiss you when the ball drops, and that kiss becomes the first of many in the new year :))

Mysterious cosmic radio blasts traced to surprising source
Repeating bursts come from a faint, distant dwarf galaxy.

Astronomers have pinpointed the location of an enigmatic celestial object that spits out brief, but powerful, blasts of radio waves. Surprisingly, the source of these intermittent signals lies not in a bright galaxy but in a small, dim one, some 2.5 billion light-years from Earth.

The discovery begins to lift the curtain on the mystery of fast radio bursts, which have puzzled astronomers since they first described the signals in 20071. This detection has really broken open the gates of a new realm of science and discovery,” says Sarah Burke-Spolaor, an astronomer at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Socorro, New Mexico, and West Virginia University in Morgantown. She spoke in Grapevine, Texas, at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society.

Fast radio bursts appear to come from beyond the Milky Way and crop up seemingly at random across the sky. Although they last just milliseconds, the radio blasts can emit as much power as 500 million Suns.

Favourite Acting Scenes: Even confesses his thoughts to Isak (10.10 part 1)

CASTING CALL: Looking for a charming, Norwegian James Dean with the acting skills to match! Preferably 2m tall so that he can tower over everyone else.

In the first few episodes of the new series you just booked you’re portraying a suave, smooth and an overall cool person. You’re charming, and direct, and your character has finally found someone who makes you feel other things than just caged in. You don’t appear too often in the beginning, so you stay mysterious. You’re an honest and a kind person, but you just don’t tell everything that bubbling under the surface. This character is made to be seen from a distance – don’t get too close, because that might break the illusion.

Not all illusions are made to be broken, but unfortunately for yours it is. You are still you, but a bit more vulnerable; the surface has been breached. After a week of nothing and everything you’re taken home. Weeks of feeling everything at once result in hours of sleep. But then you wake up, and clouds are immediately gathering over your head. You need time. To breathe, to form thoughts, sentences.

And Henrik takes his time. As mentioned in my previous post of my general ideas on acting in SKAM, it relies on quietness: on the time between lines, the moments of silence. Just as was the case with Tarjei, not everything needs to be heard, but you need the audience to feel. That is what Henrik is doing so perfectly in this scene: he is taking his time to feel, and he does not rush, preferring the quietness. Let me really show you what Even feels.

When Even wakes up, his hei can barely be heard. The actors are allowed to really whisper, as softly as they would in real life, and that’s okay because the mic will pick it up. For twenty seconds, he doesn’t say anything, before he whispers again. Anything harder will only hurt. It’s already 10:30. Shit. You see him make the decision; he has to leave. Deep breaths.

From that moment on, he does not look to his left, his voice becoming firmer. I have made the decision, I have to leave. I have seen this before; you will find me a burden. This is not going to work. Eyes are shut but his lids are still moving, as if he tries to will the tears away. How did I ever think it was going to work? You’re not sad now, but you will be. If you stay with me.

And this is such a great acting moment from Henrik; here he takes his time. He takes fifteen seconds, trusts his director and fellow actor not to interrupt to fill up this silence. If I take this moment to do this my way, will you be okay with that? And they are. Of course they are, because you’re so good at this. Challenge us.

His, usually, magnificently bright eyebrows become incredibly sad. His eyes are wet.

Deep breaths.

This is not going to work out. He’s looking to his left again, turns towards him, needs him to hear his words. I have hurt so many people before, you would only be the next one in line to hate me for it. You see that he truly believes in this, as if it’s all his own fault that it happens. It’s natural.

Nei. Lovely Isak. Wonderful Isak. (Tarjei’s wobbly voice is quite impressive here. It is incredibly tough to sound convincingly uncertain and hurt, but it feels so so real).

The atomic bomb argument does take Even aback. He seems unsure how to react to this: he did not expect Isak to be so stern about this. But the minute for minute game lands him again; his face becomes slack and it feels like he becomes more calm. He feels calm. Henrik barely breathes, he’s quiet. But then Even whispers again. Okay. I’m in. What do we do now? He waits.

It’s as simple as a kiss. His smile reaches his mouth, and very quickly goes on to his eyes. It doesn’t last long but that’s okay. And that kiss is all he needs to feel that calmness again, he trusts Isak and breathes deeply. He sleeps.

Even is not, was not, nor ever will be a burden. Thank you for showing that to us Even; thank you, Henrik, for making us believe in it too. Henrik (and Julie) took their time for us to do so. Acting can be such a healing thing; both for the actor as well as the audience.  It can tell us stories that we need to see to make us really believe

An In Depth Analysis of SHINee’s Taemin hit song “Sexuality”  and how it is a Gay Anthem
  • “The Mystery of beginning Sexuality” here we can deduce that the mystery of beginning of sexuality is synonymous to the phrase “Gay Awakening” 
  • “Where the sky and the earth are tangled” We all know that the Earth is often referred to as Mother Nature indicating that the Earth is in fact a female and i googled searched “is the sky a girl and is she a lesbian?” and the results were inconclusive so i’m just gonna say yes, Francesco’s song is rife with lesbian undertones
  • “This new world, we rule it” Here we have Mr. Lee referring to the Gay Agenda and their plans for world domination
  • “We are sucked in even stronger” taemin got that good succ
