just because this scene breaks my heart

*pounds fist on table* ok i need to talk about the god-tier klance moments in s3e03 “the hunted” because damn there’s a couple scenes that are so powerful and important and i just….holy shit. buckle up, y’all.

this episode is fucking great for a lot of reasons, but one of my favorite parts of it is how much it shows the development of keith & lance’s relationship: especially 1) how good lance has become at grounding keith & helping him control his reckless impulses, and 2) how keith feels like he can be open and honest with lance about his fears/insecurities––which is a big fucking deal because we’ve almost never seen him do this. 

the first scene that really struck me is this part where keith is leading the team after lotor and it’s just….a big mess. he’s not thinking about keeping the team together. allura’s falling behind and he’s not paying any attention. he’s not considering that this might be a trap. all he can think about is diving in headfirst without considering the consequences.

and then this happens:

uhhhh….oh my god??

look, we know how keith gets. we know how hot-headed and stubborn he can be. i mean listen, we’re talking about this kid who literally tried to fight zarkon by himself.

and yet…..even in the middle of this intense chase, lance gets through to him. he brings keith down from that battle-rage and makes him see reason. and he does it in a way that’s straightforward and brutally honest (“you’re endangering the team and you can’t do this”) which i think is exactly why it works. that’s the kind of direction keith needs, and tbh out of everyone on the team it makes the most sense that it comes from lance.

i’m just

me: hey can i get a fucking uhhhhh lance being keith’s impulse control
dreamworks: *gives me this*
me: *kicking down the door* HOLY FUCK MOM

and look i was already sobbing over this one small part but then we get THIS….THIS SCENE….

oh boy oh wow where do i stART?!

god damn this scene is beautiful––visually, thematically, it’s just …. so powerful and significant.

first of all i need to freak out a little over the way the scene is set up and how wonderful the symbolism is. 

it starts with keith literally in the shadows, and then slowly emerging and drifting up towards lance with their lions facing each other. lance & red are above keith & black which is really interesting.

as we all know, keith is the leader right now. and yet, both literally and figuratively, he’s not positioning himself higher than lance––in fact, he’s doing the very opposite. and his lion doesn’t have her head lowered in shame either; the lions are directly looking each other in the eyes (which i feel like is pretty damn rare??) and that’s very meaningful. everything about the visual setup of the scene just screams openness, honesty, vulnerability. 

(side note: also wow @ that red and blue background, amiright)

and then we have everything that keith says. and boy….there’s so much to unpack here:

- he admits it was his fault and he led everyone into a trap
- he also admits that everyone warned him (lance warned him) and he wasn’t listening
- and because of that he put everyone else in danger

and man i gotta give huge props to steven yeun here because his voice acting in this scene….jeez it broke my heart. keith says all this so quietly, his voice is literally shaking. shit, he sounds close to tears. this is possibly the closest we’ve ever seen keith to totally breaking down and it’s just…..it hurts so much and it’s so important.

it really hits you in this moment that keith is a kid. he’s a teenager!! he didn’t want to lead the team & he doesn’t know how to do it. he can’t do it by himself. he doesn’t say any of that explicitly here but it’s 100% clear that that’s exactly what he’s saying.

and he says this to lance of all people. lance, his supposed “rival”! you would think lance would be the last person he’d want to turn to for reassurance or to blatantly admit “wow i fucked up real bad.” and yet….here we are. it’s moments like these that really prove that under the surface, these two don’t hate each other in the least. they like each other. they respect each other. they rely on each other!! (*whispers* space ranger partners….) 

and lance’s response only proves my point even more. he could easily have said “i told you so” or otherwise berated keith for his mistake. but he doesn’t! his answer is:

- yes, you messed up.
- but we’re going to fix it. we. i can’t stress that enough! he doesn’t say “you messed up and now you have to do something about it.” he doesn’t say “you messed up and now i’m going to take over and do something about it.” he’s essentially saying “yeah you made a mistake but that’s in the past….and now we’re going to take care of it together.” 

and that’s?? so great?? because keith more or less admitted that he was feeling this huge burden weigh down on him, and lance––in his own subtle way––lifted that weight off keith’s shoulders. he’s reassuring keith that he’s not alone in this. *wipes tears from my eyes*

and if all that wasn’t enough, keith immediately saying “you’re right” makes it all the more significant. he’s openly admitting once again that he fucked up, but he’s also agreeing with lance’s statement that they can still turn things around and fix his mistake as a team. which is…..wow. 

tl;dr - everything about this pair of scenes just proves how keith & lance work so well together and need each other. it shows how important it is for them to be open and honest with each other, and demonstrates how they both have that capability. 

and i’m gonna scream about it for a hundred years. 

I will never get over this

(x) The subtlety and realness of this scene. That instinctual urge to protect. THAT’S JOHN. WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY JOHN

#like….okay. okay. this is one of my absolute favorite scenes out of the entire film #i’ve posted about this before but GOD zack taylor bravely confesses his love in this little moment between the four of them and it just. #it breaks my heart. because for starters it’s so in character? zack taylor is canonically impulsive and reckless and risk-taking. #he doesn’t always think things through. he acts first and thinks later. it’s part of the whole parkour persona he’s got going on. #so of course in this moment (when he’s feeling anguish/desperation about losing billy) he realizes and says aloud what he’s thinking #“billy probably did die for us. i would too if i could.” just…he just says it. you hear a little hesitation in ludi’s delivery (SO GOOD) #but he just flat out tells them he would trade his life for theirs after knowing them what. ten days? god. zack has fallen so hard. #jason mightve been the one to deliver the sad speech about wanting to trade places with him but it’s zack who steals the show imo #imagine loving someone so much that you’d trade your life for theirs? THEN MULTIPLY THAT BY FOUR #that’s what zack does. he drops the ‘i love you’ bomb. “there are a million different ways to say i love you. you just have to listen.” #I CANT GET OVER THIS LIKE I CANNOT EVER GET OVER THIS zack who had NO ONE BUT HIS MOM two weeks before #is now prepared to give up everything in order to keep these people he loves (l o v e s) safe.

this scene just breaks my heart?? the way i see this, bum finally gets to experience what it’s like when someone is on his side, when someone “defends” him (i use quotation marks because technically i believe sangwoo did it because he was challenged by yoonjae and damn, sangwoo’s ego is not having any of that). bum probably feels like sangwoo protected him from getting teased and that must feel pretty damn nice for someone who is used to being looked down upon and has been left alone in situations where they are definitely in the need of outside help. he has never left from a situation as a winner.

i’m sad because he feels happy over such a small thing like basic human decency. and i’m afraid it’s going to make him cling to sangwoo even more.

JEMMA REDGRAVE AT THE TOP OF THE CAST LIST FOR APRIL 4TH 🙌🏻🎉😭

OH BLESSED DAY FOR ALL THE REDGRAVE TRASH PITS, WHO HATH BEEN THIRSTY THESE MANY WEEKS!

because sometimes life is like a movie… just not the one you thought.

includes movie parallels, those gorgeous s4 scenes, and how even bech næsheim came into isak valtersen’s life when he needed it most. tell me this song wasn’t written by isak for even?

Keep reading

Can we talk about the acting at the end of “UnmAsked”?

Because this scene blew me away, especially Shay Mitchell and Troian Bellisario.

You can feel the agony Emily is going through and you can feel Spencer’s pain for her best friend. And I just feel like these two don’t get enough credit for this. In the first picture it’s like Spencer wants to lose it, but she can’t because she knows she has to keep Emily from completely falling apart. Then the intimacy of their friendship in the second and third pictures just breaks my heart. While Aria and Hanna can do nothing but hold Emily and stare in shock, Spencer takes the comfort role and Emily immediately leans into her.

You can literally see the exchange of Emily thinking, “I want to die” and Spencer’s response of, “No. Not while I’m still around. I got you.”

again i feel like i have to explain why this scene of all. especially after 2x18. its because magnus is feeding alec the lines to end this before it really starts. yes they kissed and have gone on this date, but they aren’t official. and magnus has heard these same words so many times, he knows what comes next. as much as he doesn’t want alec to leave, he expects, and is still heart broken. yes alec comes back, but what breaks my heart is that magnus doesn’t protest or asks alec to stay. this has happened enough that he just kinda accepts it. he has no idea

day five a scene that broke your heart 

I just realized something about the media showing up at my house those nearly 3 years ago now. I didn’t call them, they just showed up. And while it’s highly possible Taylor figured that would happen knowing how they chase down all she does, she also led them away from us earlier. She lied to the paps about where she was going as they followed her out of her home that day and lead them away because while she was “used to it” (which itself is upsetting), she didn’t want to scare Leyton. There was no “look at me!”; she did something kind for the safety and security of my son. I was tired and emotional and looked like hell, and they just showed up (I had a publicly listed address and they found me.) When I think about how some people speculate that the car crash scene in the LWYMMD music video is symbolic of the “media attention whore” reputation, it breaks my heart. It’s just not true. 

The more I think about it, the more I realize internally I probably didn’t really WANT to talk to them, not because I didn’t want to give Taylor the amazing credit she deserved for it, but because I knew the years of crap they had put her through and how they misconstrued EVERYTHING. That’s why, although it seems almost impossible to misconstrue something so giving into something bad, the one thing I said before talking to ANYONE was “I want it absolutely known that everything she did and does is with the purest heart”.  I remember this clearly, and I remember still worrying that they’d get it wrong. I recall the literal FEAR of talking to the media because of how they always seemed to be able to twist ANYTHING she did. I couldn’t blame her one bit if she got to the point where she was afraid to do the same.

This scene breaks my heart...

…Because Bruce will never actually allow himself to ever be happy. Because he “made a promise”. Because he doesn’t realize his parents would rather have him happy with a family than fighting every nights. Because of what he does in this scene…He freaking apologizes that his parents’ death doesn’t hurt as much as it use to, he apologizes for feeling happy and…THIS SCENE BREAKS MY HEART OK ?! So I’m sharing it with you. Because. 

Also, everyone should watch “Mask of the Phantasm” at least once in their life, definitely (after “Under the Red Hood”) my Favorite Batman animated film. It’s brilliant. It’s perfect. I love it. So damn much. AND I HAVE TOO MANY FEELS RIGHT NOW AAAAAARGH SOMEBODY SAAVES ME !! This is exactly why I write fluffy things with Bruce Wayne…I just want him to be happy

why did we as a society just.. almost completely overlook that scene in episode 1 where boxman throws darrell into the furnace and darrell says, and I quote, “I deserve this” because that honest to god fucks me up every time I think about it and like.. is the show gonna reference back to that at some point, is there gonna be darrell angst, is my heart gonna break into a million tiny pieces because of this robot boy and his feelings??

reasons why that whole darn episode was amazing:

  • marlon’s fACE when faith makes a break for it is p r i c e l e s s
  • “she’s like the usain bolt of grandmas.” “who needs a wheelchair?”
  • rob being so upset that the wedding wasn’t perfect and aaron not caring because all that was important to him was that, at the end of it all, robert was his husband
  • i know i’ve said this at least six times now but i cannot even believe they got married in the damn garage they fucked for the first time in
  • also the garage is so much more significant than that? like, that’s where aaron attempted suicide, it’s where he first started to really grow up and be responsible, not to mention that’s where robert made the first attempt at even a friendship, never mind the affair
  • “remind me why i’m marrying you and your massive ego again?”
  • aaron’s little choked up, emotional giggle at the end of the “i wasn’t expecting you to do the whole ‘til death do us part’ thing” i mean the lad honestly sounds like he could cry of happiness at that moment
  • “that’s how it works, idiot” i love how this has just become their pet name
  • i really, really love how they keep coming back to the “but you know” “i know” thing
  • “i never thought i’d have this with anyone. and i never though i’d have it with you.”
  • foreheadkissforeheadkissforeheadkiss
  • all of aaron’s little smiles because aaron dingle’s happiness is my happiness
  • charity ringing the bell i love her like as much as she teases them she loves them
  • ADAM
  • the damn pink confetti
  • diane “break his heart and you’re dead” sugden is my queen
  • the “drink from the welly!” chant
  • cain, who once beat the absolute daylights out of robert, getting annoyed with him when he’s taking too long to do it
  • paddy’s “he does love you. i think anyone can see that.” he’s going to start accepting rob’s presence in aaron’s life
  • also the whole padron scene, i’m so glad they’re slowly fixing them paddy just needs to stop being so wrapped up in his damn self
  • “better go and rescue my husband”
  • just anytime they refer to each other as “husband” i mean really
  • “one’s enough, i like him conscious”
  • the way rob steadies himself on aaron after the welly idk why i like that so much i just do
  • ADELE
  • the way rob grips aaron’s face as he kisses him in front of everyone and doesn’t even care #charactergrowth
  • if you blink, you’ll miss it, but right as the camera pans over before they disappear behind chas as she walks past them you can see rob gently kiss aaron’s neck
  • the way robert presses his face into aaron’s shoulder, his lil smooshed nose, and the way they both light up when they see chas
  • faith calling rob “blondie” does she even know his damn name? anyway if they wanna make rob and faith best friends i’m here for it
  • speaking of robert’s friends, robert has friends!! even if they were just background randoms that he never actually interacted with! but where the f was bob?!
  • how peaceful aaron looks in robert’s arms
  • robert and belle interaction, that made my life
  • robert’s drunk stumble (which is mostly ryan’s post-surgery knee)
  • “oi, have you seen me husband? dead grumpy, but he doesn’t look bad in a suit.”
  • the way reality hits aaron like a freight train at the end of the ep broke my damn heart but was beautifully acted god bless u ryan and danny
  • mr. dingle and mr. sugden
  • robert knowing aaron’s not fine
  • “i don’t wanna leave ya” “i don’t want you to go”
  • aaron apologizing to robert destroyed my heart like yeah thanks i didn’t need that or anything
  • “you’ll come home to me, and we’ll never look back”
  • also, the weird cover of ‘please don’t stop the music’ playing behind them in that scene
  • and of course, that beautiful wide shot of just them in the night with some candles, clinging to each other because they’re the most important things in the world

my favorite scene*

The barely-suppressed panic in Delphine’s voice as she tries to dissuade Cosima from leaving, spouting arguments that ring hollow because she has forfeited the right to say “I love you, don’t go” and she knows it. Cosima’s tearful smile when she says “I came back for you” (aka the point at which I get something in my eye and/or my allergies start acting up). The way Delphine’s voice breaks when she asks “Why didn’t you tell me.” She’s trying so hard to hold it together.

And that kiss. The desperation in it; the longing. This is the truly remarkable thing about this scene: I want these two to kiss–I’ve been dying for them to kiss for the past seven and a half episodes–and when they finally kiss, it breaks my fucking heart. Because it doesn’t change anything. This isn’t them getting back together like they need to do, goddamn it; It’s just a slip. A moment of weakness.

It was tragic. Tragedy doesn’t necessarily have to be someone murdered in cold blood. Done correctly–and I will fight anybody who says this scene didn’t do it correctly–it can be two people who need one another kept apart by duty and circumstances.

Here’s where I finally start getting pissed off about Delphine’s shooting in 3x10. It didn’t bother me much when I first watched it. I already knew she’d be back. I wasn’t saddened or shocked or outraged. At worst, I was annoyed. Eight or nine episodes without my fave. Great. But lately, I’ve been comparing and contrasting it with this scene, this achingly beautiful, profoundly sad moment, and it’s like John Fawcett and Graeme Manson didn’t even know what they had. Somehow, they were able to watch this and say,”Eh, it’s just not tragic enough.” Shooting Delphine was cheap, obvious, and utterly unnecessary.


*it’s possible that this will eventually be supplanted by something from 5x05 or 5x08. Too early to tell. I’ll let you know after I’ve watched all their season 5 scenes a zillion times.

I was bored on my way to uni, so I decided to mull over some fake banter between Asala (the elf-blooded teenage daughter of one of my Qunari Inquisitors, Taashath Adaar) and the companions, should she tag along on missions.

 ***

Asala: So you’re like the Qunari-Qunari, are you? All right and proper?

Bull: [chuckles] Oh, I am seldom proper, kid. But yes, I follow the Qun.

Asala: You know, my Da’s not that different from you.

Bull: [grunts disapprovingly]

Asala: No, but you see: you’d think he’d be able to do anything he wants without you Bennies watching over him? Well, nah! With a face and horns like those, you can only be a merc, and nothing else! It’s like a role - only instead of the Qun, it’s assigned to you by humans, and you can never escape! You can’t be an artist, or a baker, or a tailor… Did you know that my Da is actually great at making lace? He…

Taashath: Asala!

Asala: Fine, fine… Shutting up.

Bull: [thoughtfully to himself] Bennies…

***

Cassandra: When I was your age, I had already spent many years training as a Seeker.

Asala: Is that why you are so uptight? Jealous that I get to have fun and you didn’t?

Cassandra: [disgusted noise] My point is that you could at least try learning to be more disciplined. Your father worries about you; it… it distracts him from his duties.

Asala: Yeah, well, so do you, but you don’t see me prattling to you about discipline, yeah?

Varric (if in party): Hah! Good retort, Braids!

Cassandra: I… I don’t know what you mean… How could I possibly…

Asala: Go discipline your cheekbones, Lady Seeker. They are too distracting.

***

Vivienne: If I were you, my dear, I’d spend less time around that Sera character.

Sera (if in party): She’s not a baby, yeah? She can pick whatever friends she likes, with no help from bossy bitches like you!

Vivienne: All those… unseemly pranks, races around the keep in the middle of the night - and you are picking up some of her mannerisms, too! That is quite unbecoming for the Inquisitor’s daughter.

Asala: But I swear I saw you smile when I did that thing to Cullen!

Vivienne: It was… mildly amusing, yes - but that is not my point, darling.

(If Sera is in party) Asala and Sera together: No breeches!

***

Asala: Hey, can I poke you for a moment?

Solas: Not in the literal sense, I hope?

Sera (if in party): Aww look, Master Egghead is still upset about the tadpoles in his mug!

Asala: No… I just thought you might look at this for me. It’s, um, a bracelet - but I can’t put it on cuz my wrists are too big, so I wear it on a chain like an amulet of sorts. It belonged to my mother.

Solas: It has… Elvhen writing on it.

Asala: Sure it does! My mother was an elf!

Sera (if in party): Eww, I knew you were part elfy, but I never figured you’d be hold-on-to-weird-junk sorta elfy!

Solas: And I suppose you want me to translate it for you? Very well. I shall examine it when we are in a quieter place.

***

Sera (if she was in party during the previous banter): Hey, ‘bout last time. I… I sorta take it back and all. You are all right, even with the elfy junk bits!

Taashath: You make it sound like she should be ashamed of her mother!

Sera: Whoah, don’t go all red-eyed on me!

Asala: Da, she didn’t mean anything by it.

Sera: Sure I did! I meant s'all good!

Taashath: Hmph. All the same, think before you talk next time.

Vivienne (if in party): Sometimes you are impossibly demanding, my dear.

***

Solas: That inscription on your mother’s bracelet - it is a prayer to Mythal. I translated the whole text and sent my notes up to your quarters.

Asala: Oh, thanks Egg… I mean Solas. After all these years, we’ll finally know what it means! Even my mother herself could only make out a couple of words. Right, Da?

Taashath: Yes. Most of the folks in Liliel’s alienage could barely read common, let alone the language of the ancient elves.

Solas: That is… Most unfortunate.

Sera (if in party): Ya know what’s unfortunate? Going this long without food! I think I’ll go shoot a ram or somethin’.

***

Asala: You know, Blackwall, the way you go on, I could make a sport of dangling off a cliff to see who runs faster to catch me, you or Da.

Taashath: Don’t even think about it!

Blackwall: Your safety is not a joking matter!

Asala: Ugh, why do you never loosen up around me? Is it something about my face? My voice? Me being taller than you?

Blackwall: You are the Inquisitor’s child. My first duty is to protect you.

Asala: This child is seven-bloody-teen years old, thank you very much.

Blackwall: I thought your father said you had only turned sixteen recently.

Asala: I’ll get back on that when you’re less boring.

***

Asala: Hey Bull, are there singers under the Qun? Or writers?

Bull: That what you wanna be, kid?

Asala: Yeah, kinda… But have you ever seen a Vashoth singer anywhere?

Bull: Can’t say I have. Unless you count drunken singing in taverns.

Asala: Do you think the Qunari Tama… things would have picked the right role for me? The role that matches what I wanna do with my life?

Taashath: Don’t put any ideas into her head, Bull!

Bull: Wasn’t going to, boss. Like I said, the Qun is not for everyone. That teenage rebellion thing your kid likes doing - probably wouldn’t end well.

***

Varric: These poems you write, Braids - they are pretty good.

Asala: Wow, really?

Varric: You actually make the words rhyme without making the whole thing seem like one of those grating kiddy songs.

Asala: Hah, I don’t suppose there are too many kiddy songs about gravestones and doomed lovers and such.

Taashath: About that… I could never get why you have to make all your stuff so dark!

Varric: She’s a teenager, Floofy. Writing dark poetry is part of her job description. But unlike some teenagers, she is actually good at it.

***

Cassandra: I… I happened to be passing by when Varric was looking at your last poem, and accidentally glanced over his shoulder.

Asala: Oh? So now you’re gonna tell me that poetry’s undisciplined too?

Cassandra: No, I just… Why did that woman’s husband have to die?

Asala: So she’d mourn him and break the reader’s heart?

Varric (if in party): Don’t bother, Braids. The Seeker only accepts happily-ever-afters.

Cassandra: That is… the most ludicrous reasoning I ever heard! Besides, she had plenty of opportunity to come to his aid in that battle! If she had flanked the enemies that he had engaged…

Asala: She isn’t based on you, you know. Because that would mean her hubby’s based on Da, and I can’t kill off my own father!

Cassandra: [disgusted noise]

***

Dorian: I hear you made quite a scene at the execution site.

Asala: Hah, I sure did! Shame you weren’t there to see it!

Dorian: I deemed drinking myself witless to be a far more pleasant pastime than watching your father cut off my former mentor’s head.

Taashath: Dorian, we’ve been over this.

Dorian: With you, yes. But not with the girl. She deserves a personal thank you for standing up to a certain valiant leader.

Asala: I am great at that. Years of practice.

(Some time later)

Dorian: I wonder… What exactly did you say to change his mind?

Asala: Well, Da ranted on and on about how your hooded friend turned me into a dead chunk of red lyrium in the bad future, and how hurt and angry he was. And I said, 'So now you know how he is feeling!’. And then Da made this droopy face he is making now and…

Taashath: Will you two please change the subject?

Dorian: Very well. Pray tell me, young Asala, what are your sentiments towards grapes?

***

Cole: Flowing, rhythmic patterns, cryptic but beautiful, how does he do it? You… You really like the way I talk?

Asala: Of course I do! It’s like you’re brimming over with poetry all the time!

Cole: I just try to sort through things I hear. It’s hard sometimes, when people are so solid and are hurting too loudly. I… may not make a lot of sense.

Asala: Hey, I don’t make a lot of sense either! We can start a club!

***

Blackwall: And then he said: but at least the turkey still has its tail!

Asala: Hah, finally! I knew you were not completely hopeless! What a great un-boring story!

Blackwall: It’s from my old army days.

Asala: Huh, I thought army humour would be dirtier.

Blackwall: It is. I had to censor it somewhat so your father wouldn’t kill me.

(Some time later)

Asala: What about Grey Warden humour? Is it dirty too?

Blackwall: Well… The thing is, by the time I joined the Wardens, I had lost some of my boyish penchant for amusing tales.

Asala: Too bad… Well, army humour it is, then! Do I get to hear the uncensored version when I turn eighteen?

Taashath: Asala!

***

(After the cutscene where Dorian tells Taashath that Felix died)

Dorian: It was you, wasn’t it?

Asala: Salt sprinkles on Josie’s chocolate? Yeah, it was me. But I only added a little!

Dorian: No, I mean that poem on Alexius’ desk. The one about the man who planted a tree and then, when it withered, remembered how he had sat in its shade? He told me about it this morning.

Asala: I have no idea what you’re talking about! Trees! Shade! I’d never write such sappy nonsense!

Dorian: You brought the man who almost destroyed the world to the verge of tears. That is quite an accomplishment, young lady - and I say that as an incredibly accomplished person myself.

***

Asala: So… You and Da - did you do the bnb thing or what?

Cassandra: Bnb? What manner of teenage jargon is this?

Asala: Oh, you know… Birds and bees.

Cassandra: Birds and… Oh! Oh, I see!

Taashath: Asala, leave the Lady Seeker alone!

Asala: Still Lady Seeker, huh? So I guess you didn’t do it… What’s stopping you? I mean, you have the hots for each other - it’s sooo obvious!

Taashath: Asala, stop this - or so help me, when we return to Skyhold, you’re grounded!

***

Cole: Woke up from a nightmare again. Demons, calling, clawing, constricting; Uldred’s eyes, bottomlessly black, suddenly not two but a dozen; Meredith bathed in crimson. And then - soft, soothing, shimmering, rainbows dancing over his bed. It had been so long since he started the morning with a smile.

Taashath: What are you talking about, Cole?

Asala: We put shards of coloured glass into the holes in Cullen’s ceiling. Now they both protect him from the rain and give off pretty light!

Taashath: Wait, have you been climbing the roof?

Cole: She didn’t fall. She didn’t die. Today is another day when she didn’t die.

Asala: Yeah… Thanks for this cheery thought, Cole.

Cole: It wasn’t me. It was your father.

***

Dorian: The books I ordered from Tevinter have finally arrived.

Asala: Does this mean you’ll give me a lesson tonight?

Dorian: Of course. You already have those Orlesian volumes, don’t you? Southern historians are biased against Tevinter; our historians are biased against the rest of the world… It will be educational to pit them against one another.

Asala: And fun!

Taashath: Wait, did my daughter just call learning fun?

Dorian: Why the tone of surprise? What did you try to teach her?

Taashath: How to run a merc company.

Dorian: Well, there you have it!

***

Asala: Um, Cassandra… If you hesitate about Da because of me - please don’t.

Cassandra: Because of you?

Asala: Yeah, like… If you worry that I’ll hate you for stealing him and replacing my mother and all.

Cassandra: Nothing could be further from my mind! Even if my relationship with the Inquisitor wasn’t strictly professional!

Asala: Well, in case it ever stops being 'strictly professional’ - I don’t even remember my mother. Da raised me alone. And I actually think it’d be good for him to have someone in his life. Take care of the stupid old fella and all.

Taashath: I heard that!

(After Taashath saves the Chargers)

Asala: Hey, Bull… Don’t look so glum! Remember that time you said the Qun isn’t for everyone? Maybe it wasn’t for you too. It just took you this long to figure out.

Bull: Hmph. And what do you suppose is for me then?

Asala: Maryden put some of my poems to music. She’ll be singing them tonight at the tavern. Krem will come, and the other Chargers. I think if you come too, you’ll understand what is for you.

Bull: Huh, I think you spend too much time round Cole. That cryptic shit is beginning to rub off.

Taashath: Bull, what did I tell you?

Bull: Oh, right, boss - don’t swear in front of the kid! Fuck, I’m sorry!

(After Revelations)

Asala: You know, it’s kinda funny.

Blackwall: What is?

Asala: I heard stories about the Grey Wardens plenty of times when I was a kid, with the Blight having recently ended and all. And when I met you, you were just like I imagined the Grey Wardens should be.

Blackwall: And now… I have disappointed you.

Asala: What? No! The Grey Wardens are gonna disappoint me from now on, if they don’t pull off all this amazing noble-warrior-atoning-for-his-past stuff!

Blackwall: You… You don’t know the whole story, do you?

Asala: I know enough to believe that you deserve sticking around with our Inquisition. And you can always tell me the uncensored version when I am eighteen, right?

***

Cassandra: Are you feeling better now? Have you asked Vivienne for a potion?

(If Vivienne is in party) Vivienne: She has indeed, my dear. But such things are generally not discussed in public.

(Otherwise) Asala: Sure! But do we… do we have to discuss my darkspawn week in front of everyone?

Cassandra: I just wanted to make sure you were all right.

Asala: Aww, thanks, mom.

Cassandra: You do not have to call me ’m'am’.

Asala: I wasn’t.

(After Last Resort of Good Men)

Asala: Damn, Dorian.

Dorian: Was that expletive a sign of admiration for my good looks?

Asala: I mean… My Da yells at me sometimes, and tries to punish me when I mess up… And this makes me think that he is the meanest person in the world… But it’s nothing like what you went through, is it?

Dorian: Oh, there were plenty of temper tantrums on my part too.

Asala: And for good reason! Me, I’m just a selfish teenager who wants attention - but you… You are amazing and you deserve better!

Dorian: You are not exactly worthless yourself, young lady.

(After Bring Me the Heart of Snow White)

Vivienne: Bastien’s family shall be holding a musical salon as a tribute to both himself and his wife. I would very much like it if you attended, my dear.

Asala: Whaa- ? Really?

Vivienne: If your father gives you permission, of course. You have such a wonderful singing voice; it is wasted in the courtyards and bath houses of Skyhold.

Asala: But… Won’t they be scared of me being… me? Unless you give me a mask to wear, I suppose.

Vivienne: It will be a half-face mask only; otherwise how would you sing?

Asala: Oh.

Vivienne: Being who you are ought to be a source of strength, not weakness. Always remember that, darling.

the entire siege arrow scene is so fuckign funny in retrospect knowing that percy and vex knew they had feelings for each other by that point because they’re both hilariously unsubtle about it but neither of them think it’s requited

percy: shattering stone, shattering doors, breaking things that should not be broken.
vex: breaking hearts left and right?
percy: if… that is what you’re after.
percy: never forget you’re my favorite and i’m so sorry.

$20 Well Spent

Okay. This was originally a smut request I believe, but because I already have so much smut to write I just wanna write implied smut because then it’s faster and you all have something to read. So this comes first and then I’ll finish my Chris Jericho or AJ Styles smut after. 

Okay this needs to be said; I can’t write endings, they’re not interesting enough for me so this ending will suck.

And plus Matt Hardy’s wife is Reby Sky?! How didn’t I know this?

Prompt: Matt sees Jeff checking you out and makes a bet that he can’t get your number. 

Originally posted by its-my-yard

They were all sat in a booth at the back of the club; Matt with Reby, and Jeff with his beer. Though Jeff’s eyes weren’t on the bottle in front of him, they were on you as you stood with Alexa and Becky taking shots. He had no clue why he was looking at you though. Whenever he’d try and look somewhere else, his eyes always came back to you. It felt wrong. He’d only recently divorced Beth and he was here checking you out in your short black dress. 

He knew your name, he knew you were also on Raw with him (he’s seen you backstage all the time), but he’d never had a conversation with you. He wanted to though. He wanted to tell you how much he loved your gimmick and that you always made him laugh, but when he tried to, the words would get stuck in his throat and his feet wouldn’t move at all.

“I never thought I’d see the day. Jeff Hardy doesn’t have the balls to talk to a girl” Matt gasped sarcastically, breaking his brother out of his thoughts. Jeff laughed mockingly and threw his middle finger up at his brother.

“I do have the balls to talk to her” He answered defensively as he began to pick the label off his bottle.

“So why aren’t you talking to her?” Reby asked with a smirk on her face. 

“I don’t know her” He shrugged his shoulders nonchalantly. The booth fell into silence as Matt took his answer, and Jeff was thankful that he’d avoided that conversation.

“Hold on” Reby smiled, breaking the silence that filled the booth. She got up, winking at both men and strutted to the bar to where you were stood. Both men gawped as she hugged you and started talking to you as if you were both old friends. They saw Ruby whisper something in your ear and point over to them, and your eyes followed her finger and looked right at Jeff, giving him a friendly smile.

“Oh fuck” Matt laughed into his beer as he saw Reby lead you over to the booth where both men were sat.

“Boys, meet Y/n. Y/N, meet-” Reby began to introduce you all, but you answered for her and she smiled at Matt, taking the seat next to him.

“Matt and Jeff, I know who you guys are. I’ve been a big fan since you both arrived at WWE” You took their hands and shook them, giving them a shy smile. 

“You should join us, we have some catching up to do anyway hon” You sat down next to Jeff and you cradled your drink awkwardly as you smiled at Reby.

Both men tuned out eventually as you and Reby began to catch up. Well at first it was catching up, then it became you both talking about other people, and then it became a conversation about something (that’s when they tuned out). They ended up on their phones, texting each other to keep themselves occupied.

Matt: I dare you to sleep with her.

Jeff stared at his phone in shock and then looked up at his brother who was smiling with his eyebrow raised.

Jeff: No, why would I do that???

Matt: Because she’s a 29 year old woman in her prime, and I just dared you. 

Jeff: No

Matt: Fine, I knew you didn’t have the balls to do it. Whatever happened to the pre 2013 Jeff who had no problem with getting a woman’s number? I miss him.

Jeff: Don’t pull that shit

Matt: I bet you $20 bro, and it’s a dare. You can’t back down now.

Jeff was about to answer the text when they heard both Reby say their names. Both men looked up and saw Reby stood there with her coat in her hand. “C’mon Matt, lets go. It’s 12:45 and I’m tired” She groaned as Matt stood up and rummaged through his pocket before placing his keycard on the table in front of Jeff. 

“I know you left your card back in the hotel room” He spoke before turning around. “Don’t forget the room number” He laughed and made his way out of the bar with his wife.

Jeff just sighed and sunk further into his seat as you laughed to yourself. He looked at you questioningly as you glanced back at him. “It’s nothing. I just realised that younger me would’ve died if she was here right now” You chuckled into your drink as he moved a little closer to you, obviously needing an explaination. “I had a huge crush on you when I was younger” You explained as he looked at you in shock. 

“On me?”

“You were the scene kid that stole my little heart” You placed your hand on your heart dramatically and Jeff laughed next to you. “But in all seriousness though, I remember breaking my wrist as a kid because I tried to swanton bomb my brother. So my parents banned me from watching WWE” You smiled at the memory as he laughed next to you. The sound warming your heart. As much as you hated to admit it, you still had a huge crush on him. 

You perked your head up as you heard the familiar voice echo through the club. “Oh my God, I love this song!” You slapped his arm weakly a few times as he began to listen. 

“S&M?” He barely got the question out before you dragged him onto the dancefloor among all the other drunk people who were substantially younger than him. “So uh what do you want me to do?” He asked awkwardly, trying to keep his eyes anywhere but your chest. You soon realised what he was trying to avoid and you stepped forward, and moved your mouth to his ear. 

“It’s okay, you can look. They’re real if you were wondering” You whispered seductively, and judging by the way his jaw clenched, he liked it. Before he could say anything, you turned around so your back was against his chest. ”And to answer your question. Do this” You took his hands and placed them on your waist. He was taken back for a second until he felt you begin to grind on him to the beat of the song.

I may be bad but I’m perfectly good at it” Your head was on his shoulders as you began to sing it to him quietly. He was taken back by your actions, but he couldn’t say that it wasn’t one of the hottest things he’s ever been a part of.

Sticks and stones may break my bones” He would be lying if he said he didn’t have a huge hard on from hearing you sing the chorus to him. But he was trying to stay composed until the song finished. But that went tits up quickly.

But chains and whips excite me” Your teeth skimmed his ear as you felt him shiver behind you. His hands began to wander over your body, and you moaned into his ear at the contact. 

“Fuck it” He growled and took your wrist, leading you out of the crowded club and back to the hotel.

He could taste the regret before he felt it. And that regret tasted like way to many shots and what other things were in contact with his mouth. His mouth was dry and had a foul taste. Then he felt the headache hit him all at once. As he opened his eyes, light flooded his vision and he looked around the room; it was a mess. The next thing he did was look next to him. Nothing. He felt a pang of sadness as he sat up, and picked up his boxers. Slipping them on quickly, he walked out of the bedroom and was met with Matt and Reby eating breakfast.

“Morning” Matt sang out as he passed his brother with an empty plate in his hand. 

Jeff let out a groan in return as he slumped down in the seat that Reby had pulled out for him. 

“Fun night?” Reby smirked at him and he dropped his head onto the table. “Sure sounded like you enjoyed it”. Matt choked on his water as Jeff looked up at her questioningly. 

“I have no idea what you’re talking about” Jeff spoke defensively as Matt and Reby exchanged looks.

“Sure looks like she enjoyed it too” Reby pointed at his upper arm and his eyes followed her finger. 

“Oh shit, you actually got her number” Matt high fived Jeff and pulled out his wallet, handing him $20. 

“What do I do, do I call her now?”

“Well I’m going out to meet her for lunch later with your brother. You can tag along if you like” Reby smiled as she drank the rest of her coffee.

I think Destiel may be canon/how I want it to be canon

I know a lot of the fandom doesn’t ship destiel (and they ship wincest, ew) but, I really want to say a  lot of things about destiel.

Dean and Cas have the most amazing bond and the way that they looked at each other around season 4(ish) just melts my heart.

It’s canon that in 8x17, Dean was scripted to say ‘I love you,’ To Castiel, but they changed it to “I need you,” because they didn’t think that he would actually come out and say that. It’s obvious to Dean’s character that he bottles his emotions and doesn’t say his feeling for a number of episodes. 

And we do know that it is 100% that Cas loves the Wincesters *coughdeancough*. I think he aimed it at Dean, because he said, “I love you,” *camera cuts to Dean* “I love all of you.” *cuts to Dean agAIN, then cuts to Sam.* And also during that scene, it looks like he looked at Dean and then his eyes flick down, or is that just my imagination? 

And Dean’s reaction to Cas dying in the season 12 finale, he looks shocked, how anyone would be if a friend died. But unlike Sam, who went to check on Jack, Dean stayed. He stayed by Castiel’s side, fell to his knees, and looked up at the sky with the look of utter heart break in his eyes. 

I’m sorry I can’t find a gif of his heartbroken face. 

As you may or may not know, Jared Padalecki accidentally let it slip that Cas is going to be on season 13. I also read something saying that Jensen is excited for filming season 13 because of Dean’s reaction to Castiel’s death. On the same post it said that Misha said characters are romantically involved. That makes me think that Destiel may be canon near the end of season 13, or near the middle, not the beginning because Dean always bottles up his emotions. 

That’s why I think destiel may go cannon. Here’s how I want it to go canon. I don’t want them to straight up fuck (cause they’re not straight eyyyy) but maybe later on, because come on. Dean is Dean and he likes sex. A lot of relationships go canon like that and I don’t think sex builds the emotions that people have in a loving relationship. I mean it might for you, who the hell am I to decide things? It’s just my personal opinion. I want Dean and Cas to have a sweet first kiss. Maybe Dean is so happy to see Cas alive he kisses him. Maybe one is worried about the other and kisses him. Or one of my favorites, Destiel has been canon for a while but has never been on screen. For example, after the mixtape scene (people give mixtapes to people that they have a crush on) Dean leaves to get a beer. It never actually shows him with a beer. Did he come back to his room (with Cas? Wink wonk) to drink it? And later Dean said he kept the Colt under his pillow and Cas double crossed him. Hmm how did Cas get that from under the pillow eh? (Wink wonk). Even if Destiel does not become canon, I still believe that it may happen. I personally think there is so much evidence pointing to Destiel and I think it will become canon late s13. What do you guys think? This was a long post. Thanks if you read all the way! I may edit this later on so keep an eye out!
