Ben Affleck Appreciation Week︱Day Two: Favorite Role → Capt. Rafe McCawley (Pearl Harbor, 2001)

“Ma'am, I’m never gonna be an English teacher. But I know why I’m here: to be a pilot. And you don’t dogfight with manuals. You don’t fly with gauges. I mean, it’s all about feeling and speed, and lettin’ that plane become like a part of your body. That manual says that a guy who’s a slow reader can’t be a good pilot? That file says I’m the best pilot in this room. Ma'am, please: don’t take my wings.

Defiance Appreciation Week

Defiance originally premiered on April 15th 2013, and Nolan and Irisa arrived in Defiance on April 15th 2046, so I think it’s the perfect time to do a Defiance Appreciation Week!

April 9th: Favorite character

April 10th: Favorite relationship (romance, family, friends, or even enemies)

April 11th: Favorite quote or favorite scene

April 12th: Favorite costume

April 13th: Reason you fell in love with the show

April 14th: Favorite object (Irisa’s knives, Nolan and Irisa’s Antarctica postcard, Stahma’s poison set, Berlin’s camera, Amanda’s scotch bottle, etc)

April 15th: Free day (Some suggestions: favorite season, favorite arc, favorite Votan curse word, favorite location, cast appreciation)

We’re a small fandom, so I’m hoping we can get as many of us as possible together for this one. 

And if you don’t do gifs, graphics, drawings, or other art, text posts are fine too. 

Tag your posts with #defiance appreciation week so we can find everyone’s posts. #defianceedit is the general defiance edit tag, so you will probably want to tag your graphics with that tag as well. 

Have fun and hope you join us!
