ScarletVision kissing scene, the theory.

I’m writing this theory when I should be studying for my Anthropology class for tomorrow. I’m tired, it’s 00:37 am, and I have a full mug of coffee with hot chocolate in front of me. I would rather die than say that this was not worth it

Let us begin

What is the Clift Trademark?

Monty Clift’s influence in film and in acting is much larger than people credit him to. He was the first. Before Marlon and before James Dean, he refused to sign any contract (only once a 3 picture contract but broke it bc Monty was never an obedient rule follower tbh)dating 1943 to filming Red River in 1946 and so forth,including a rumor Mgm leader Louis B Mayor begged him into a contract on his knees crying-only for him to reject it bc of bad films and abuse cases against several actors and discrimination cases. In his roles, Monty had burned his hand accidentally learning to fire a gun like cowboys do to shoot rattlesnakes, broke his nose learning to ride bulls, spent time in prison to play an alleged criminal, sweat through his clothes because he stressed himself too much to physically transform into a character. He had ran around high school tracks to get into shape, reading several books, taking notes on the script everywhere to get himself ready to play his character right, lost weight, gained weight, left himself bearded for months and even almost caused a huge lawsuit because his amount of dedication to his method acting style was pissing off directors they called their lawyers to sue(fortunately didn’t but still was a huge feud). Sound a little familiar?? Robert De Niro spent 22 weeks as a taxi driver for “Taxi Driver” and also went through several physical transformations for his roles, Al Pacino also did and along a number of actors:Daniel Day Lewis,Charlize Theron, Salma Hayek, Sean Penn, Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jack Nicholson, Dustin Hoffman, Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman,Jamie Foxx, Idris Elba, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benicio del Toro,Rooney Mara, most recently the transformation of Oscar Isaac’s film roles,dozens and dozens of actors in roles they transformed so much. All these actors and several more have been influenced by the Clift trademark. That was one of the most important influential moves Montgomery Clift established. That made him stand out: pushing himself to the edge, sweating, crying, shaking, running, burning, cutting, breaking, gaining and losing weight.Monty lived for that. To give as he could, even after his accident and keep on pushing himself for the sake of performance, not just physically but emotionally, a signifance actors inspired after him uncredited for off the studios people refusing to accept his signifance due to his protests against the studios treatment to lgbtq/colored/discriminated actors and him being bisexual. People only wanna credit Monty 34 seconds, forgetting his work and his personal protests that changed the relationship between Hollywood and actors after the 1960s. They think mainly Brando and Dean,however,it was the Clift Trademark that also had a significant impact in the film industry of actors since.People only know of Brando and Dean but it was the blacklisted name the media/studios covered for some time that started and created a cinematic and artistic significance and era he did not get to see before his young death: Montgomery Clift.

Unpopular opinion, maybe?

I’d ship CS even if Hook stayed exactly as he was in The Doctor and Tallahassee, because there was still something about Emma that made him different.  I wouldn’t give a good goddamn if he hadn’t done half the stuff he’s done since then, they would still be my ship.  I shipped them from the beginning for a reason, and that was because their dynamic was flawless, even when he was a “villain”.

The fact that he has done so much and has gone back to the man of honor he set out to be only solidifies to me that they are the love story of this series, even moreso than Snowing, because they’ve had to work so much harder to get there.

But no, his (extremely well done and believable) character arc doesn't change anything for me.  I was planning on shipping this in hell even when he was nothing but a vengeful bastard.  And I know I’m not the only one.

So no, they didn't have to give him the character arc they did to make people ship CS, people were already there.  This just so happens to be the story they've wanted to tell, his story, from the outset.  He was never your villain, and even if he was, CS was still going to happen anyway.

“Did you always plan for Hook to be in love with Emma?”

Always.”

Attention all Joshifer shippers

If you ship Joshifer, in any way, shape or form, this applies to you. And it would honestly mean so much to me if you gave it a read, because I’m sure we could all benefit. Have a chat with me, if you please~

I ask “which part of Africa are you rooted?”

and they say “I am not African…I’m from Memphis”

and I say “You do realize you are black right?”

and they say “but yeah I’m not from Africa”

and I say “But you know Americans are not even rooted in America.”

and they say “Yeah but I’m not with that African shit”

looking at me like i’m an outcast…like i’m some underprivileged person

who should be happy I’m in America.

First of all

I am too proud to be African.

Wanna know why?

When your grandparents were shipped here to work as slaves,

my grandparents stayed and became kings, queens and warriors who

fought for freedom.

So yes i’m with that African warrior shit

Cos I have a place to call home

A place that is free from racism

A place that cares and protects their own

I’d rather be a child of a warrior than that of a slave.

So go on with your slave shit,

whilst I adjust my crown and watch you try to change a system that wasn’t meant to protect you in the first place.

If I were you, I would go look for my roots
