Title: Winter Clothes Author: lilbookofkell Rating: General Audiences Warnings: None Apply Completed: Yes Word count: 2493 Summary: Apparently
a bunch of hoodies and a few baseball hats are “not proper winter gear” and
telling Bitty that that’s all you have will make him say things like “you’re
going to freeze to death” and “you poor sunshine child” and “oh my goodness
Chowder don’t you own any boots?”
Most memorable line: Chowder has to
literally bite his tongue to stop from asking right then and there if Bitty has
a crush on Jack because Jack is right there and bros do not ask their bros if
they have crushes on their bro when said bro is right there.
Top Five Buffy Episodes (that aren’t The Body, Once More, with Feeling or Hush)
In the great pantheon of Buffy episodes, it’s the big three, Hush, The Body and Once More with Feeling, that are generally always in the top three spots in some order. So, because I want to shift the focus onto five equally brilliant and deserving episodes, here’s my top 5 of the rest.
1. The Gift
It’s no surprise that the final episode from the show’s best season tops the list. Masterfully orchestrated by Joss Whedon, the episode plays out with action, drama, pathos and humour. With some of the shows most memorable lines and some moments of true darkness, there’s not a beat missed in this exquisite, breathless end to one era of the show as Buffy sacrifices her life to save her sister.
2. Who are you?
After the return of Faith in ‘This Years Girl’, it seemed that nothing could perhaps top the excitement of her season three storylines. Yet by swapping bodies with Buffy, she was able to see what it was like to truly be loved and her development over the course of the episode is deftly written and terrifically realised. “Because it’s wrong”
3. The Wish
Alternate universes are always fun but this one actually felt like it had stakes (Sorry, not sorry). Vampire Willow was a treat, of course, but it was being able to see beloved characters get knocked off without consequence and Giles save the day that made this a classic. Also, it was the first time we met Anya and the show was all the better for it.
4. Fool for Love
Poetic television. Exquisite character building for the show’s most interesting character and a deft exploration of the slayer mythology. The flashbacks are intriguing, the plotting clever and it gives much-needed background to the great William the Bloody.
A beautiful, bizarre, inventive experience that hints at the future, reflects on the past, creeps you out and makes you laugh in equal measure. “I wear the cheese, it does not wear me”

Most memorable line: He couldn’t think of
anything they could possibly be hiding and was still thinking about how weird
they’d been acting when he walked into the kitchen.

was no question. He was fucked. But he was pretty sure
he was okay with that. Probably.
theatre things that remind me of the hogwarts houses
gryffindor: auditioning for the first time, being alone on stage, long choreography rehearsals, the adrenaline of opening night, designing the set on the grid, hauling furniture onto the set, cue to cues, writing a play, improv comedy, waiting at the stage door after a show.
hufflepuff: getting flowers and gifts backstage, taking the final curtain call, highlighting lines, bringing snacks to rehearsal, read-throughs, pulling costumes from stock, set dressing, paint swatches, warm lighting design, perfectly blended sound, directing, waking into a theater you’ve never been in before.
ravenclaw: character analysis, memorizing lines, learning tight harmonies, having the show become second nature, stage makeup, set construction, costume fittings, mic checks, organized prop tables, writing cues, stage managing, experimental theatre, saving old playbills and ticket stubs.
slytherin: callbacks, practicing after rehearsal, selling program ads, an understudy/swing going on for the first time, fight calls, strike, production meetings, late night paint calls, cool-toned lighting design, spiking the stage, fly rails, producing, watching a bootleg, playbill giveaways.
Liam: Yeah, we just all kind of fit into our little roles in the band, and like we all know where we stand in the band, our place in the band, how we work with each other and stuff. So yeah, we all know our little things, and why it works.
Like, say, Louis’s the joker of the band. Niall’s the cute Irish guy
of the band. Zayn’s the quiet mysterious man. Ooo, mysterious. And Harry…
I never rehearse. Never! I think it’s a waste of time. You’re trying to be spontaneous in a very unspontaneous environment, so the only chance you have is to keep it inside of you for as long as you can so that when the moment finally comes it will hopefully seem like you’re saying it for the first time.
Standing there, in front of Dean, his brother, the one he’s been looking for for six weeks, that only a couple of days ago he discovered he’s a demon, and very much alive. He probably memorized this line over and over, it was so important for him to show Dean he isn’t giving up on him. He finally came, after doing everything he could, and some things he shouldn’t have, after being tortured almost to death just to protect his brother. Standing there, being open and vulnerable, just to be mocked and minimized by Dean, this must hurt so deeply. Yet he swallows his hurt and silences his pain. There is a bigger mission here, saving his brother, and he will do everything to get this done.
Will learned how to act by memorizing everyone else’s lines: Will was a rapper before the show – he didn’t have any real acting experience. He was working with experienced actors, and felt really uncomfortable because he wasn’t sure what to do. Will has said, “I was trying so hard. I would memorize the entire script, then I’d be lipping everybody’s lines while they were talking. When I watch those episodes, it’s disgusting. My performances were horrible.” Well, we think he’s improved!
“One of the more memorable lines by Cap in the film is, “This isn’t freedom, this is fear.” It’s probably the theme of the movie. That’s what he chooses to stand against in the film. There were a couple lines that when we got them really crystallized where he stood. That was one of them, another coming later was, “I guess I just like to know who I’m fighting.” This really helped to understand where this guy, who might seem one-dimensional to some people, works in the machinery of the story.”
