liesle

the sound of music is so iconic

like

  • the nuns roasting maria in three part harmony
  • ‘the dress. you’ll have to put on another one before meeting the children’
    ‘when we enter the abbey our worldly clothes are given to the poor’
    ‘what about this one?’
    ‘the poor didn’t want this one’
  • all seven children bursting into tears at dinner while Maria sips her tea
  • ‘God bless whats his name’ (ten minutes later) ‘KURT! that’s the one I left out! God bless Kurt.’
  • maria passive aggressively praying about Liesl as she climbs through the window
  • tbh Captain Von Trapp dragging everyone around him at every possible moment like
  • ‘you flatter me captain’ ‘oh I’m sorry, I meant to accuse you’ *AIR HORN SOUNDS*
  • ‘I’m not finished yet!’
    ‘OH YES YOU ARE, CAPTAIN.’

    ‘FRAULEIN’
  • liesl rolling her eyes at kurt during the blueberry/strawberry scene
  • honestly the love story I didn’t quite get as a kid but I’m SHOOK
  • when the baroness is trying to get the captain back on track but he just interrupts her and is like ‘there’s no use’
  • BUT WHEN THE BARONESS SAYS ‘well, she’ll never be a nun’ the look of SHOCK on his face like it honestly never occurred to him that Maria was in love with him too
  • so of course hes like ‘I must find her and kiss her immediately’
  • Von Trapp ripping the nazi flag in half like YES BINCH
  • THE MOST UNDERRATED SCENE THOUGH IS AFTER THE NAZIS RUN TO THEIR CARS TO CHASE THE VON TRAPPS AND THE SCENE SWITCHES TO THE TWO NUNS
  • ‘reverend mother, I have sinned’
    ‘I too, reverend mother’
    *they both hold up coils from the nazi’s cars*

anyway this movie is the best and I love it

“I had a huge crush on him. He was so perfect and he spoke with this perfect British accent.” 

Charmian Carr (Liesl) has admitted she was attracted to Christopher Plummer.
Despite the 13 year age difference, Plummer admits that the feeling was mutual. He insists it never evolved beyond flirtation.

anonymous asked:

ok this is going to sound rude but i totally don't mean it to be, but as an asian i always get super exited when i see asian authors, so i was wondering why you chose to write a european story rather than something korean? loved it tho

Hi nonny:

I get this question a lot, so I’m going to come across as a bit short or annoyed, but it’s not about you, I promise (I don’t know you after all). 

It’s about your question.

It is a rude question, and I don’t appreciate it. Frankly, what I am and how that affects what I write is none of anyone’s business. If you want to know why I wrote Wintersong and not something Asian, I write a little about it here. And it isn’t that I don’t intend to write something Asian-inspired; I do. Why did I choose to write something European? Many things. I like Mozart. I like the German language. I like European folklore. I am pretty goth. I grew up with these things, so I know them pretty intimately. 

But I want to unpack this question a little. Why is it that women of color are expected to write or perform their own marginalizations? Do we go around asking out queer people to only write queer stories? Do we ask disabled people to only write their disability? Incidentally, I wrote my disability into Wintersong. I gave Liesl my bipolar disorder. But the praise and censure I get always stems from the most obvious marginalization I have: my face, and by extension, my ethnic background.

If you want to get into the weeds of why I didn’t write something Korean first, it’s because I’m not Korean. I am of Korean descent, yes. I am a member of the diaspora. But neither am I truly a part of the Korean-American immigrant experience. I grew up pretty privileged: my dad is white, I went to an all-girl’s private school, was part of swim and tennis clubs, etc. I had a lot of the markers of cultural whiteness, which is tied with class. My Koreanness is whitewashed, not just by my cultural privilege, but because I didn’t have access to a Korean extended family. My aunties, uncles, and cousins all live in Seoul, or some didn’t make it out of Pyongyang before the establishment of the 38th Parallel. I’ve been to Korea twice. The only Korean members of my family are my mother and my grandmother. Everyone else is white.

That cultural whiteness? It comes across to a lot of people, and it especially came across to other Koreans. There are reasons I don’t speak the language as well as I should, considering it was my milk tongue. I went to Korean school and attended Korean church for a while, but I was bullied and ostracized so badly I stopped going back when I was 9. I wasn’t bullied because my dad was white; I was bullied because I wasn’t Korean enough. I didn’t share their cultural language. I didn’t even share the same parental pressures. My mother is the one who had been pressuring me to quit my day job and become a full-time writer, not my dad. As a result, I was the outcast in every Asian group I ever tried to be a part of as a kid. Some were open about it to my face. You’re not Korean enough. Some were more insidious about it. They would deliberately choose subjects and topics about which I had no handhold, freezing me out of conversation. My friends? The theatre kids, the artist freaks, the writers. The vast majority of them? White. 

This obviously left pretty deep psychic scars. I can’t eat doughnuts, for one. They smell of Korean school and shame. But it also left me with a deep insecurity about even approaching a Korean subject in writing. Am I enough? Am I enough, am I enough, am I enough? It’s only as an adult that I’ve made Asian friends, that I’ve slowly started to find my way back to the heritage I’ve kept at arm’s length. 

I’m telling you my history, nonny, to better answer your question. But to also maybe shed a light on the effect of asking a marginalized person to perform their marginalization for you. For me, that question is fraught, and I imagine it is for a lot of other Asian writers as well. When I hear that question, all I hear is You are not enough. You are not Asian enough. You didn’t even write something Asian. You are not enough, you are not enough, you are not enough.

One year ago today on March 6, 2016, Eclipsed made history with the official opening on Broadway. Eclipsed, a play about women during wartime Liberia, was the first play to feature an all female cast, writer, and director. The play was critically well received and would go on to be nominated for several awards including the Tony Award for Best Play. A recent documentary aired on Centric TV about the play’s historic run. At the conclusion of the documentary, playwright and activist Danai Gurira reminds us that “there is work to be done, and we are all capable of doing something.”

YA HEROINE AESTHETICS [1/∞] → Liesl, Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones

There is music in your soul. A wild and untamed sort of music that speaks to me. It defies all the rules and laws you humans set upon it. It grows from inside you, and I have a wish to set that music free.

Chiaki, Minami, Shizuka, Mei, Rei (5)

Minami: Happy Birthday Ma-kun~

Toma: I don’t recall giving you permission to take that.

Shizuka: But you look good.

Chiaki: You would look more approachable if you made that expression all the time.

Mei: I don’t think big brother Chiaki should be the one to say that.

Rei: Mei, you’re one to talk.

Minami: It’s a good picture, isn’t it?

Toma: Oh…well…


OMG! They have a group chat! That’s the cutest thing ever!!! hehe

Translation is not 100% accurate. I tried to word it how they usually talk lol

Special thanks to: @otome–gokoroI hope Rei sounds savage enough lmfao

I’m crying! Hiraga’s reaction was a perfect representation of my own! lmfao

I was like “Okay, now you’ve done it Vatican Kiseki Chousakan! The whole Hitler thing wasn’t enough for you, so now we’re freezing people to death and throwing them off mountains on top of cow sheds?! It doesn’t work like that!”

It was a Saturday afternoon on a rainy day when everything happened, when you gain your boyfriend’s older brothers’ respect. And also embarrassed them more than they ever been embarrassed in their lives. 

Dick, Jason, Tim and you were spending some times altogether, getting to know each other, as in five years of relationship with Tim, you never really had time to hang out with his family (busy people). 

Bruce was at work, Alfred had a day off, and Damian was hanging out with some friends (which was so rare that no one dared to tell him to stay to spent the day with you guys). 

-No Jason, we  are NOT playing strip poker right now. 

-But I’m bored and a movie is…

-I said we’re not ! 

-Why nooooowwwt ? 

-Because it’s only you, Dick, (Y/N) and I, I don’t need to see my brothers naked. 

-And (Y/N) ?

-We’ve been together for five years, what, you think I never saw her naked ? 

-I never saw her naked. 

-Good.

Jason gives his brother an infuriating smile and, taking some soda cans while Tim takes a giant bowl of pop-corns, they go back to the living room where you and Dick are waiting.
