The Last Jedi: In her final performance, Carrie Fisher restores hope for Leia Organa

Part 5 of EW’s ‘Star Wars’ cover story

Live fearlessly, live boldly, and even after you’re gone that strength and inspiration burns on.

After Carrie Fisher’s unexpected death in December, The Last Jedi will mark her final performance as Leia Organa — the Star Wars character who went from orphan to princess, to spy, to senator, and finally general of the Resistance.

She remains a light that will never go out in the galaxy.

“Her character to some degree or another has been defined by loss through this whole saga, starting with the loss of her home planet. She’s just taken hit after hit, and she’s borne it, and she focuses on moving forward and the task at hand,” says writer-director Rian Johnson.

UNBROKEN, UNBOWED

No matter what grief or trauma Leia faced, she never wavered in her commitment to fighting for freedom in the galaxy, and her battle continues in The Last Jedi. Leia remains in charge of the scattershot Resistance movement, cut off from the Republic, whose leadership and capitol was annihilated in The Force Awakens.

Anyone who expected the Resistance to fill that void and maintain order would be mistaken. “No, no, no. Not at all,” Johnson says. “They’re a small band that’s now cut off, on its own, and hunted when the Republic is shattered. When the First Order did that hit, the Resistance is isolated, and they’re very, very vulnerable. That’s where we pick them up.”

While the galaxy teeters on takeover by the First Order, Leia is also dealing with personal grief, mourning the death of Han Solo – murdered at the hands of their son, Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren. The young man once known as Ben Solo has now fully fallen to the Dark Side, just as Darth Vader, Leia’s father, did a generation before.

“She’s suffered quite a bit,” Johnson adds. “While I was figuring out what her deal was going to be in this film, it’s one of the things I talked about with Carrie before I started writing: where the character would go.”

THE CUSTODIAN OF LEIA

That’s what Fisher often called herself. “She’s become me, and I’ve become her. Because it’s been a while,” Fisher told EW in 2015 before the release of The Force Awakens.

As she did in her own novels and memoirs, like Postcards from the Edge and Wishful Drinking, Fisher’s wry and brash performance as Leia allowed the character to face her hardships with a blaster-proof sense of humor and whatever the galactic version of chutzpah would be.

Although she won’t complete the saga (Lucasfilm says Episode IX is being rewritten out of respect for her passing), Leia’s impact will continue to reverberate. 

Despite hardship, Leia always finds the hope in any given situation. This time, her story is entwined with Poe Dameron, the hotshot X-wing pilot played by Oscar Isaac. Their relationship is not just general and warrior.

They’re family. And in Star Wars, the notion of family goes far beyond blood relations.

“Poe is in some ways a surrogate son for Leia,” Isaac tells EW. “But also I think she sees in him the potential for a truly great leader of the Resistance and beyond.”

In The Last Jedi, a torch is being passed. It’s about the peril of meeting your heroes, facing down disappointment, and rising to fight nonetheless. Just as Luke Skywalker – reluctantly – may be passing on his knowledge of the Force to Rey, Leia is guiding Poe, encouraging him to look beyond the crosshairs in his cockpit. There are other ways to fight, other ways to lead.

“Poe’s arc is one of evolving from a heroic soldier to a seasoned leader, to see beyond the single-mindedness of winning the battle to the larger picture of the future of the galaxy,” Isaac says. “I think Leia knows she won’t be around forever and she, with tough love, wants to push Poe to be more than the badass pilot, to temper his heroic impulses with wisdom and clarity.” 

CONFLICT WITHIN

There are also rivalries and alliances within the movement. Johnson isn’t ready to reveal what Laura Dern’s Vice Admiral Holdo’s role is in the story, but as a fellow commander in the Resistance she is likely to have a history with Leia Organa. The nature of it will be for the movie to reveal.

“The secrecy does have a purpose in that part of the fun with Laura’s character, with Admiral Holdo, is figuring out what her relationship is to everybody as you go along through the movie,” Johnson says.

In a behind-the-scenes video for The Last Jedi, there was at least one shot of the two women facing each other. It doesn’t look hostile, but under the right circumstances even friendships can turn dark.

“I don’t want to tip the hat too much, but I will say that the heat is immediately turned up on the Resistance,” Johnson says. “Everybody is put in a pressure cooker right away, and relationships crack and strain under that pressure. That was really interesting to me, the notion of putting this small army under a lot of external pressure and showing some of the results within the Resistance itself.”

THE UNWANTED FAREWELL

The storyline wasn’t changed after Fisher’s death, but Johnson says he hopes it will still be satisfying to the legion of Leia fans who see the character as a source of true-life inspiration in our world.

“There’s no way that we could’ve known this would’ve been the last Star Wars movie she would be in, so it’s not like we made the film thinking that we were bringing closure to the character,” Johnson says. “But watching the film, there’s going to be a very emotional reaction to what she does in this movie.”

While Leia’s influence as a leader endures within the narrative of the Star Wars saga, Fisher also made a personal impact on the actors who will be carrying the franchise forward without her.

Everyone who worked on the film has a Carrie story, but the sweetest and most heartbreaking one belongs to Isaac:

“One of my favorite things that would happen from time to time on set would be when Carrie would sing old songs,” he says. “Whenever that would happen I would offer her my hand and we would waltz around the set – on a starship, in a Rebel base, on an alien planet, and she would sing and we would dance. So surreal and beautiful to think about now. For all of her delicious, wicked humor and fiery energy she also had such sweet grace. I miss her dearly.” (x)

Hello! Here you go:

feel the chemicals burn in my bloodstream by togetherwecouldbealright:

Summary: “Alright, alright. No need to bite,” Harry says, holding his hands above his head in a general gesture of surrender.

Louis quirks an eyebrow and his foot nudges Harry’s as he moves to sit straight. “If that’s what you think biting is, you’ve got another thing coming, Styles.”

Harry blinks at him before he feels his face flush and inside the marrows of his bones there’s pulses of heat, pulses of fire spreading through him. “Is that a threat, your Highness?”

“That’s a promise,” Louis answers just as the car halts to a stop. “One I intend to keep.”

Harry is a journalist with a lot of secrets and Louis is the future king of the United Kingdom; they live together for 60 days.

Truth Be Told (I Never Was Yours) by JustForTommo:

Summary: Harry watches Louis as he scrunches up his nose and bites the end of a pen in concentration. He’s been working on seating arrangements for the past hour and getting more frustrated by the minute. Louis huffs out a breath and glances down at Harry with a soft smile on his lips before he returns to the task at hand. It’s easy, right then, for Harry to let himself believe that they’re planning a seating chart for their own wedding and bickering over who is going to sit where from a list of their own family members. He can let himself daydream about a white picket fence and a dog that they could have within the next year.

It’s like a cold slap in the face when Harry looks to the top of the page to see “Aiden and Louis Grimshaw” at the head table, and Harry has to mentally remind himself for the thousandth time that Louis is not his. Never was, really. He’s just the wedding planner that’s been in love with Louis since he was sixteen.

At twenty-two years old Louis has no clue what he wants in life. He’s not sure he’ll pass the year and doesn’t know where he’ll go after that. He spends his time smoking away his doubts about himself with his friends and all he cares about is making sure his family doesn’t fall apart.They don’t belong together.

Summary: Harry is quiet for a moment and his fingers feel like they’re burning past the fabric of Louis’ jumper, branding his skin. “Can I kiss you?“

“My publicist told me I can’t go anywhere near you.” Harry said, eyes still smudged with last night’s eye liner. “That makes you my favorite person in the world.”

Or the one where Louis has everything: a lead role in a giant Hollywood franchise, a glittering new house with an entertaining Irish neighbor, and a steady, normal boyfriend who he probably loves. Louis never expected to become a household name among young Hollywood overnight. He also never expected to find something endearing about the enigmatic rockstar who keeps showing up on his back porch.

Summary: “Did you clean the table?” Harry asks Louis once Rose is done speaking, now occupied with trying to see if she can reach over and touch Harry’s hair from where she’s sat. At Louis’ nod, Harry frowns. “You didn’t have to do that. You’re my guests here, I could’ve dealt with it later.”

Louis just smiles easily, though, adjusting Rose on his lap so that she’s facing Harry better. She manages to tug on a loose wave of hair, and she makes a noise of triumph that both Louis and Harry smile at.

“I don’t mind,” Louis murmurs to Harry, even though he’s looking at Rose. “This one here seemed very excited to talk to you.”

And, okay. Harry can’t help but think of how domestic this feels, all of a sudden.

Apparently “not another surly teacher” meant a drop dead gorgeous twenty-something scruffy guy with shaggy brown hair and cheekbones sharp enough to chop a salad with. Clearly, Robin’s trying to get Harry killed at seventeen.

Or, the AU where Louis is a 25-year-old driving instructor and Harry is a 17-year-old virgin who’s really awful at seduction, except for the time he gets Louis to fall for him and fuck him senseless and take him on kinky adventures.

Empty Gold by rainbow_kings (148k words) [long, b!H, enemies to lovers]

AU where Louis Tomlinson attends the vigorous, demanding performing arts school: Guildhall in hopes to complete his theatre degree. He is a scholarship student, always having to work twice as hard to prove his worth which has caused him to feel resentment and anger towards his subordinate position.

Harry Styles is the wealthy, naturally gifted actor who effortlessly snatches all the main roles within the class. The complete contrast to everything Louis is.

Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles have had bad blood and despised each other for the two years they attended Guildhall together, making each task a competition between each other.

In the final year, when Guildhall produces and performs an original play, Louis is heartbroken to learn the lead role has been been received to Harry and he’s the second role. He’s mostly terrified, however, when he realises he has to date Harry in the play as their characters. They come together through awkward stage kisses that transforms to hate sex, heated arguments, rehearsal times after lectures and baking carrot cake together.

The one where there’s late night coffee runs with deep conversations, lots of frat parties with cute frat boys, TV show references, numerous social network interactions, first kisses in the rain and a slow burn love story between two unlikely people.

Here’s a thought for this morning: it’s been over 25 years since I first saw this movie and I’m LESS over Obi-Wan’s face in this moment than ever. 

LUKE BROUGHT ARTOO TO OBI-WAN’S HOUSE WITH A MESSAGE FROM LEIA AND BAIL. There are TOO. MANY. FEELINGS. IN THIS SHOT.

Did he know what Leia looked like before this? Was he like OMG she looks like her mom? Was he like HOLY SHIT BOTH OF ANAKIN’S KIDS HAVE ALREADY KINDA FOUND EACH OTHER I’M NOT SURE IF THIS IS A GOOD THING? Is his mind blown by the sheer Will of the Force business going on here? Is he thinking about that time he went on a Wacky Adventure™ with Bail? Is he having flashbacks because nobody’s called him General Kenobi in almost 20 years, and the last person to do so was probably CODY BEFORE CODY TRIED TO KILL HIM? 😭

Please note that this whole thing comes right on the heels of “I was in love with your dad btw and then Ancient Evil murdered him”, so I am always already in a vulnerable place by the time the film gets to this point. 

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: this is easily one of my absolute favorite scenes in the entire franchise. It is one of the main things I remember from my first viewing, THAT’S HOW MUCH IT HIT ME IN THE TINY NERD GIRL FEELS.

9 Reasons Why the New “Beauty and the Beast” is Better Than the 1991 Original

I know, such a crazy notion, but as a die-hard fan of the original 1991 animated classic, as a young woman who adored Belle and looked up to her as a young girl, and as someone who loves Disney, I truly believe that while the cartoon classic is phenomenal, the new live-action reimagining is astoundingly better. Here are my reasons why:

1. Back-story 

In the original I always had SO MANY QUESTIONS. Mainly–how in the hell did a village less than a few miles away not know that a giant castle that once was home to a wealthy and powerful Prince was RIGHT THERE? Who was the Prince ruling over if the villagers had no clue this place and this beast existed? Why were the servants cursed if they weren’t the ones who turned the old woman away? Why was the Prince so cold-hearted, arrogant, and shallow? The prologue amongst other scenes in the 2017 film address all these questions.

We learn that the enchantress placed a spell on the villagers to make them forget about the Prince and everyone in the castle. This explains how no one knew it was there, and also the sense of lawlessness in the village, because if their ruler–the Prince–vanished, and no one remembered him then whose in charge? Gaston? No wonder it’s a mess there.

We also learn why Beast is so cold-hearted, we learn his mother died when he was young and his father was emotionally abusive, and raised him to be a spoiled, arrogant, shallow shell of a man. We also learn that the servants witnessed the emotional abuse of this child and did nothing to stop it–deeming them worthy of punishment for being so cowardly and selfish as to not help the Prince when he was young.

Now someone asked me why the hell Chip and the dog were cursed too, they didn’t do anything. My theory is the curse was really only taking effect inside the ballroom, all the servants were in there for the ball, and in the opening sequence we see Chip running in to see what’s the matter and Mrs. Potts running after him–terrified. I believe she sensed the danger in the ballroom, and was trying to save Chip from meeting the same fate as the rest of them, and ultimately–she failed. The Maestro and Madame de Garderobe’s dog was in the ballroom as well, so I guess he was just unlucky also.

We also learn that Cogsworth and Mrs. Potts had spouses who must’ve been away from the castle when the spell was cast, causing them tragically (at least in Mrs. Potts case) to be forgotten by their loves.


2. Belle the Feminist Activist

It was never made clear in the cartoon film that it wasn’t just ‘odd’ that Belle liked reading it was ‘odd’ that a low-born woman in 18th century France even COULD read. It wouldn’t occur to children (it certainly didn’t to me) that her reading in public is practically illegal and worthy of public shame. In the cartoon it was just all ‘lol books are lame,’ In the live action not only does Belle not have a town bookshop to go to (because seriously, why would a town of mostly illiterate people who hate reading have a bookshop) she is merely friends with the Priest who owns less than a dozen books. THAT IS ALL SHE HAS. And then she teaches another young girl how to read and is publicly shamed for it, and still doesn’t back down, because she believes that women deserve the same rights as men. 

In the beginning sequence of the town, we literally see boys marching into school while the girls are stuck doing the wash. Belle also refuses to waste valuable reading time on the laundry–so girl INVENTS A WASHING MACHINE! 

When Belle gets to the castle, she tricks the Beast into taking her instead. She tries savvy ways to escape. She never flings herself onto the bed and cries like in the cartoon. She fights every damn second.

In the end she doesn’t even change out of her ballgown to go save her father, she just hops on her horse and goes. 

Belle was ALWAYS strong, but this 2017 Belle is formidable and a force to be reckoned with.


3. Tragic love

In the 1991 film, the wardrobe was a goofy character there for laughs, as was Plumette. Also, Lumiere and Plumette’s relationship in the cartoon was creepy and borderline sexual harassment. It was pure lust. In this version, they are madly in love and Lumiere clearly cares about her so much. 

We also see Madama de Garderobe and Maestro Cadenza (a brilliant new character) who are also madly in love, but unlike Lumiere and Plumette can’t even be with one another during the curse due to the stationary limitations as the objects they’ve been cursed to be. By the time Madame finally makes her way downstairs to be with Maestro it is too late, the curse is taking away their life. The moment when Lumiere realizes he has lost Plumette, and where Maestro realizes he has lost Madame, add a heart-breaking very raw and real layer to the story. It’s not just about Belle and Beast, these servants aren’t just funny objects that talk, they were people too. They had a life and loves and that was stolen from them just as it was the Beast.

4. Papa and Belle’s Motherless Backstory

In the cartoon, Belle’s father is simply a goofy character. He’s a blithering idiot who makes pointless inventions. In this version, he is an artist who had to leave his plagued wife behind in Paris in order to save their only daughter. We see him live with the pain of this everyday. We see him and Belle have a beautiful, genuine relationship. We see him fight whole-heartedly for Belle. We see him give her courage and strength to never back down from who she is.

And we learn something that the cartoon NEVER gave us–we learn of Belle’s mother. Lost to the plague when Belle was a babe, with nothing but a rose-shaped rattle to remember her by, that her Father captured in a painting. Explaining why Belle always asks for one. We learn that Belle–like her father and mother–is willing to sacrifice everything for the ones that she loves.


5. Classic Fairytale Homage 

While the cartoon held almost no remnants of the original fairytale written over 500 years ago, or the original French film made in the 40s, the 2017 version pays homage to both. 

Belle asking for simply a rose from her father’s travels, as well as Beast and his servants preparing Maurice a fire and dinner when he arrives at the castle, but Beast only growing angry when Maurice steals the rose–is taken directly from the pages of the fairytale. 

We also see another fun easter egg reference to the french film: when Maurice walks up to the door–he sees the front lantern is being held by what looks like a human arm made of stone, which in the French film, was an incredibly iconic scene when Belle walks through the dungeon to find her father.


6. A Real Antagonist

Cartoon Gaston is again, a 2D character there to provide some conflict at the end. The 2017 version shows him as the epitome of prejudice, hatred and sexism. He expresses many times throughout the film the the sees Belle as prey for him to hunt. He leaves Maurice for dead in the wood. The lyrics of the mob song were even changed to include his verse “but I know they all will follow, for in times like this they do just as I say.” Gaston is the scariest Disney villain because people like him exist in real-life. Gaston and his angry mob of blind-followers provide a tangible conflict outside of the curse that the cartoon simply did not provide.


7. A Shared Love of Reading

It never made a damn bit of sense in the 1991 cartoon and the Broadway musical adaptation–that Beast was illiterate. If ANYONE during the time could read it sure as hell would’ve been the wealthy Prince. All aristocracy could read and most men knew how to read a little. So yeah, a Prince could read.

So the fact that he and Belle share a love of reading adds and element to their friendship bred romance that didn’t exist prior to this reimagining.


8. New Music

What would Beauty and the Beast be without those iconic numbers like: ‘Belle,’ ‘Gaston,’ ‘Be Our Guest,’ and of course, the title song–made famous by Angela Lansbury– ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ When Broadway adapted the cartoon film years ago, they added some songs of their own, such as the Broadway-Buff-Beloved number– ‘Home.’ So naturally it would’ve been easy for the writers and directors of this film to just buy the rights to those songs and call it a day. Instead we got 5 gorgeous new numbers, and 1 new reprise. We got the opening ‘Aria,’ sung at the Prince’s beginning ball by Madame de Garderobe, we get ‘How Does a Moment Last Forever,’ sung by Maurice, singing about remembering his late wife. Then we later get the Montmartre of this song sung by Belle as she recalls the lost ‘Paris of her childhood,’ in an all new scene where her and Beast use a magic book to travel to the attic where she lost her mother. We get ‘Days in the Sun,’ where we hear from the servants and the pain they feel as well living under the curse. We get, ‘Evermore,’ the torrid, angst-filled lamenting ballad Beast sings when he let’s Belle go. And lastly, we get a never before heard reprise of ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ sung by Mrs. Potts ( Emma Thompson) at Belle and Beast’s wedding. These news songs add more passion to the film. (Evermore is my personal favorite)

9. Gay Lefou

It’s about damn time. Cartoon Lefou is definitely alluded to being in-love with Gaston, but Josh Gads blatantly homosexual portrayal was brilliant, and as a member of the queer community–made me so happy.

Yes, in ‘Frozen’ we got the one throw-away joke about Oaken being gay, but it was 0.5 seconds long and barely delved into. In this 2017 film, Lefou makes many sexual innuendos towards Gaston, publicly cuddles Gaston, and in the end dances happily with another queer fellow at Belle and Beast’s wedding, and this is an amazing step forward for the Disney franchise to start having openly queer characters in their films.


SO THERE YOU HAVE IT! My 9 reasons why the 2017 Beauty and the Beast is better than the 1991 original. I still love the original and it will always have a fond place in my heart–but when movie nights of the future come round, I will opt to put on the 2017 version instead, and experience a Tale as Old as Time, retold for a new generation.

Harry can’t disappoint them, even if it means enduring four days with Louis.

-  I am a little sad that it took $175 million to make the movie, and the box office only got $147.9 million, I thought it would have gotten more. I only spent six dollars to see the movie with my best friend.

-I adore this movie. It hits you in the feels, hardcore. It’s the best cars movie, yet! Only Rotten Tomatoes disagrees and rated it a 67%

-This is the awaited sequel of the first movie, I don’t even count the second Cars movie as part of the universe because it was horrible. This was all about Doc, Lightening, and Cruz. It was Beautiful.

-There are new and old characters introduced in the movie, there were flashbacks of Doc Hudson, I cried every-time. The music didn’t help either at that point. Speaking of the music, they’re was old and new best soundtrack since the first movie.

-The movie did a lot of focusing on the racing, I felt like my heart was going to burst open because it was such a relief to get back in the familiarity of the track race.  

-Lightning’s crash. I wasn’t prepared for it, I sat on the edge of my seat, gripping the recliner handles. It was so intense and left me gasping because all he wanted was to do his best, to win the race and prove he’s not past his prime in life. Lightning spends more than four months recovering in Doc’s garage

- The scene in the garage, with the wall plastered with pictures of Lightning and Doc. “Racing wasn’t the best part of Hud’s life. You were.” *Cue the tears*

- Jackson Storm finally got taken down by Cruz and with one of Doc’s moves no less. It was awesome.

-  Chick Hicks, Strip Weathers, Tex, Rusty and Dusty–all returned from the first film there wasn’t a lot of screen time for them but it was good enough for me.

-Sally got more screen time in this film then she did in the second. I am still curious on how kid cars are made.

–Cruz Ramirez is a happy, bubbly, positive person when you first meet her, and then when you get to know her more you see she has deep pain of regrets, and really wants to be a racer. It hit really hard for me personally because I know what it’s like to hide behind a mask of positive.

-Doc’s generation of cars was a nice touch I wish they had more screen time.  Speaking of which every-time Doc Hudson made a appearance I cried  He’s one of my favorite character in the franchise.

-Lightning’s character development from the first movie was very nice, you could tell that he wasn’t a hot-temper person anymore, that he has aged, gotten wiser, and actually takes advice from people. Which brings me to my next question how old is Lightening? Someone said thirty-years-old but I would think he’s a little bit older.

-How do cars actually die? I still want to know this, how old do they live for?

-The creepiest thing about this movie was Sterling having parts from Lightening’s races, like body parts in jars on the display, like please tell me you didn’t steal his body parts while he was sleeping.

-Lightening repainted himself to look like Doc. It was amazing.

OVERALL Cars 3 was worth seeing, it was what the Franchise needed to conclude the movies, if you haven’t watched the second one, I wouldn’t. Consider this movie the sequel to Cars. I really loved everything about this movie, I am satisfied with how everything fell into place, how the new generation and old generation can co-exist together, and come out with a HEA.

Rating: 9/10

Let Me Introduce You To Someone Named Morticia Addams.

Oh Look! Another well-written female character with lots of personality in a famous franchise! That’s right in today’s post we’re looking at a lady character from one of my favorite fucking franchises ever: Morticia Addams. [Wednesday’s post will be coming soon don’t you worry]

First off: Morticia is in a franchise that in addition to the original comic strip includes TV adaptations, film adaptions, video game adaptations, book adaptations, a musical adaptation and The best-selling pinball game pf all time. All of which Morticia is featured in as The Addams Family’s deadly but pleasant matriarch. She’s part of the most beautiful marriage ever seen on TV [She and Gomez are one of my three OTPs] and despite Gomez being the ‘official head’ it’s clearly Morticia who truly rules the family.

She’s elegant, beautiful, fiercely loyal, subtle and the one to take action when something goes wrong. [See the Addams Family film to see what i mean] She has hobbies such as cutting off the heads of roses, feeding her African Strangler Cleopatra and strumming a Japanese shamisen. She may be creepy and kooky but that’s what makes her awesome as well as the world’s greatest TV mum.

Next Time: A mother who goes on a quest to save her dying child

Hi everyone! It is International Podcast Day! And in honor of this, I’d like to ask you to check out “Nothing’s Perfect” if you haven’t yet! It’s a show I do with my best friend @chongoblog​ where we “analyze” and “improve” various popular franchises and common aspects of every day life!

In order to make it easier for you to get on board, and also just as a little celebration of this project I love so much, here are some of my personal favorite moments from our first 7 episodes! Hope you enjoy!

Made with SoundCloud

Exactly one year ago today, my husband dragged me to Gamestop, insisting that it was impossible that there were no games that I would be interested in buying for our brand new PS4. I left with a $10 used copy of Dragon Age: Inquisition, thinking “hey, I never finished that Origins one but I still really enjoyed what I did play - and for $10, even if it’s terrible, I won’t be too mad.”

At the risk of sounding like a total sap, I can’t imagine the last year of my life without this game or this fandom.

I’ve been writing since I could hold a crayon, but in the last few years I’d had a crisis of faith in my abilities as a writer. I hadn’t fallen in love with a brand new character of my own creation or felt truly inspired by a new writing project in so long that I was beginning to think it would just never happen again. Buying DA:I was a whim, and creating Ellana was an accident (still sorry for the initial lack of eyebrows, girl), but, to quote my other favorite franchise, “I have never been the same.”

Playing DA:I and writing about Solas and Ellana got me through an incredibly tough year personally and professionally, and gave me back my love of writing in a way I hadn’t felt for years. And even though I just joined Tumblr a month ago, I am already so grateful for the kindness and creativity of the other members of this fandom. All of you continue to inspire me!

Where was I going with this? I’m not entirely sure. Anyway: here’s to a fantastic game and many more years Solavellan hell Dragon Age fandom!

Also I had a bunch of other screenshots I wanted to add but Tumblr is being dumb oh well

Here is this week’s Fic Rec! (I am officially back home after my 2 week trip, btw!) Hope you all are enjoying this Sunday! 

1. Birds in Gilded Cages by graveyardwitch
Words: 157k

There is a hotel in London where beautiful young men and women are kept like birds in a gilded cage, prisoners bound to satisfy your deepest darkest desires….

After being kidnapped as a teenager, Harry Styles was forced into high-class prostitution by the evil Mr Cowell. Louis Tomlinson is heir to his father’s corporation, set to inherit millions…But engaged to a woman he doesn’t love and deeply unhappy. When they meet at a party sparks fly and they embark on a passionate and dangerous relationship…But can it ever be true love when one of you is being paid? And can Louis ever rescue Harry from The Bird Cage Hotel?

Warning-This story is about prostitution so there will be a LOT of sex. I do not own One Direction etc etc. I do ship Larry but I don’t care if it’s real or not, I just like reading and writing the fanfic.

2. Time Bomb by ThisSentimentalHeart
Words: 291k

“Why exactly are you here?” Louis asked, feigning annoyance and failing pathetically at it.
“My publicist told me I can’t go anywhere near you.” Harry said, eyes still smudged with last night’s eye liner. “That makes you my favorite person in the world.”

Or the one where Louis has everything: a lead role in a giant Hollywood franchise, a glittering new house with an entertaining Irish neighbor, and a steady, normal boyfriend who he probably loves. Louis never expected to become a household name among young Hollywood overnight. He also never expected to find something endearing about the enigmatic rockstar who keeps showing up on his back porch.

Louis suspected he might have a little crush. It was harmless enough. It wasn’t as if he were any sort of threat to his sister’s relationship with Harry, was it?

4. All I Need is Oxygen (and You) by lululawrence

There are only two ways to navigate Bloomfield High School: become popular or make yourself invisible.

With the help of his best mate Niall, Harry’s introduction to high school hadn’t been half bad. Despite being a “bandie” – the lowest of the low in the ancient hierarchy of high school –Harry had somehow managed to survive freshman year relatively unscathed.
So naturally, Harry would have been perfectly happy to resume his position of invisible trombone player number four for the remainder of high school. But one day something drastic happened, something that would change the course of Harry’s entire existence (probably).

It was the last football game of his freshman year, and the band was back in the stands after performing a rousing rendition of Bloomfield’s alma mater during half time. Harry was gracelessly wiping the slobber from the mouthpiece of his trombone when he saw him.

Louis Tomlinson.

Or…a High School AU where Harry is a bandie and Louis is the epitome of cool, so naturally, Harry must find a way to get his attention and win his affections.

I've seen your ranking, and I wonder why you like Juzo so much ? I can't help but think his redemption doesn't outweight his previous actions. He helped stopping the killing game but that was him fixing something he did and saving someone he cared about, which isn't selflessness. He assaulted people for reasons that were petty or unjustified, so it felt really forced when he saved Naegi. Also, he let Junko end the world because he didn't want Munakata to know he was gay ? Please enlighten me.

Personally, I like Juzo because he’s not supposed to be a selfless or a sweet or softhearted character. If Juzo had stopped the killing game for any of those kinds of reasons, or if dr3 had suddenly tried to play Juzo off as a character who was entirely selfless for everyone’s sake, I’d have been incredibly disappointed. But as it is, Juzo’s character development was one of the few things dr3 managed to do right.

Juzo scores #3 on my personal character ranking because he’s an incredibly well-written and flawed character who is given his own autonomy and has a compelling arc of development. He’s also pretty much the embodiment of the Undying Loyalty trope, something I like in my characters—and even better is that dr3 managed to emphasize that that’s his strength and his weakness at the same time.

Love how the “Anti-SJW” brigade are so quick to blame “diversity” for Marvel’s sales slump and to ignore oh say… Canceling Fantastic Four, repeatedly sabotaging the X-Men Franchise, giving the Inhumans a Roman Reigns-esc push, having a digital distribution strategy that doesn’t make a lick of sense, having three Crossover events in less than a year, building an entire crossover to a Captain America heel turn no one but Nick Spencer wanted, giving the evil Captain America storyline 16+ issues of prologue with tie-ins to other crossovers, and charging a $1 more per issue than DC does for new comics.

And on a more personal note a decade ago one of my favorite Marvel comics was New X-Men Academy X a book that introduced a whole new roster of character to be the next generation of the franchise.  Then came a double dose of crossovers in the fom of House of M and Decimation.  The creative team changed and what we got was a story called “Childhood’s End” where the focus of the book was solely on X-23 and everyone who wasn’t X-23 was suddenly expendable. Characters died left and right and I quit in disgust.

Years later I became fan of Avengers Academy another book dedicated to introducing legacy characters.  It was smart, well drawn, and had tons of guest stars.  Better yet forgotten characters from books I loved like Runaways and Sentinel were guest starring.  I loved it but it got canceled and was replaced with Avengers Arena a cynical Hunger Games cash-in. I tried to give Arena a fair shake but as characters I liked from Academy and Sentiel were slaughtered I once again quit in disgust.

So after being burned twice why should I give Marvel the benefit of the doubt that they want to do legacy characters right now?

Controversial opinion time

Disclamer:
1. This is not aimed at anyone in particular, it’s just a reaction to certain trends I’m seeing in various places, which may not even be significant at all.
2. Azazel is probably my favorite character in the entire damn franchise. Certainly in the top three.

^This asshole, right here.

But I can’t help thinking that many people in this fandom should really go and watch Genesis, ie. the first season of the anime (or re-watch it, in case they’ve just forgotten what happens in it), and see what an incredibly shitty person Azazel has a history of being, and what are some of the things he’s done (some, considering that he’s at the very least hundreds of years old) for which he’s never shown the tiniest bit of remorse. 

Note: I’m not trying to start a “villain-off” or a “who’s done worse shit“ competition, and I certainly don’t give a damn about who ships what and why. That is not what sparked this little rant. I’m only trying to point out that contrary to what some people seem to think, Azazel is not a righteous champion of justice and poor woobie who didn’t deserve anything. 

He wasn’t the mid-level boss villain in Genesis for nothing - he was an arrogant, selfish, sadistic monster who toyed around with innocent people’s lives for his own amusement, and is directly responsible for some incredibly shitty things happening to people who didn’t deserve any of it; he also hasn’t even considered perhaps not massacring dozens if not hundreds of people for literally no reason at all (considering that he could have easily accomplished what he was trying to do without all that). Frankly, he personally is one of the reasons why humans hate demons, considering the destruction, fear and pain he’s directly caused. And he hasn’t shown any signs of being aware of that, never mind any remorse - not in Genesis and not in VS. 

All the shit that’s been happening to him in Virgin Soul is basically his comeuppance for the shit he’s done in Genesis (and the first quarter of VS). And the fact that it’s Kaisar who keeps trying to reach out to him and save him speaks volumes about what a good person Kaisar is, and how he’s too pure for this sinful earth. Because frankly Azazel deserves absolutely nothing that Kaisar has done for him. 

So yeah, just putting this out there. I understand that a lot of people came into this franchise via Virgin Soul, but VS is the second season of the Rage of Bahamut anime, and there’s a whole lot of context that people who didn’t see (or don’t remember) Genesis are missing. 

^Like this entire part…

(Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if Azazel, being a fallen angel with an ego the size of Cocytus, had never really given a thought about garden variety low-level demons before his side lost the war and he saw the consequences with his own eyes. But even if he did - this is a character that needed a lost war and a blow to his own pride to start giving a shit about anyone other than himself, and start on the way of maybe eventually becoming a halfway decent person. Hopefully Mugaro will help with the rest…) 

and there’s a keepsake my mother gave me

Summary:  “That was all you, girlie. Any backbone that boy’s got’s from you. Life’s more’n survival, I’s learned. The grit – the shit under your nails that makes you do that das’t right thing.” He heaves a big sigh, rattling again, and Meredith bites down on her lower lip, more habit than anything. “That’s all on you, Quill. Every ‘lil piece of it, that good fiber in his bones. Helluva lot for one person to manage when they’re dead.”

in the rapidly-approaching hours before university kills my creative spirit i managed to churn out one of my favorite things i’ve written all year. there’s something healing about women being a force of good in other women’s lives, cyclical, back and forth, generational. gotg is by NO means a feminist masterpiece (its …. trying, sort of, vaguely) but it gave me four ladies, all of whom i loved, and damn if meredith quill isnt the moral backbone of the whole damned franchise. so – here we are, in a fic that’s supposed to span the pre- and post- of infinity war, and only very vaguely has a plot. hopefully i actually achieved what i wanted to. thank you to @taxicabsandcupcakes and @parlegee for encouraging me and helping me re-write That Damned Scene, and ofc, i hope yall enjoy reading this as much as i did writing it.  

Meredith’s always loved the feeling of the wind in her hair, ever since she was a little girl flying down the long Missouri highways in her father’s pickup. She thinks maybe that’s why there’s always a breeze going on around here, always something moving through her curls.

She’d missed her curls, she had, more than she’d wanted to admit. And now they’re back, probably will be for the rest of foreseeable eternity. She can’t entirely say she’s grateful, but it’s something, at least. She’s come to terms with everything. It’s been a while, after all.

She sits down, crosses her legs at the ankles, and looks up at the big blue sky.

“You come here jus’ to take the shit outta me again, girlie?”

Meredith snorts, and keeps on looking. “You wanna think that?”

“Dunno what I wants t’think. You awful quiet for someone who by usual can’t shut the hell up.”

I just watched a few of James Rofle/AVGN's reccent videos on Power Rangers, and although it felt like there's still a lot he doesn't know/got wrong irt Tokusatsu, he WAS right in that there is a LOT of overlap between Tokusatsu and Anime (& Japanese media in general), in terms of specific genres and traits (giant robos, etc.). Do you think that we have Shotaro Ishimori, Eiji Tsubaraya and Go Nagai, among others that I'm probably forgetting/I don't know, to thank for that; the former especially?

Oh yes we do!  All of the gentlemen you mentioned above also dabbled in anime (not so much Eiji Tsuburaya himself but his production company certainly did).  In fact, Go Nagai was an apprentice to Shotaro Ishinomori as a manga writer before branching out on his own and Ishinomori was apprenticed to the God of Manga himself, Osamu Tezuka. 

In fact, the very first five man team in history was in an anime from 1966 called Rainbow Sentai which was created by Shotaro Ishinomori.

Of course, we also have to acknowledge the debt Super Sentai owes to Tatsunoko Productions and Kagaku Ninjatai Gatchaman, which brought a lot of the tropes that would later become accepted in the live action medium to the forefront.

Heck, one of the most popular pre-Power Ranger Super Sentai series was a direct homage to Gatchaman, 1991′s Choujin Sentai Jetman.

Ishinomori was such a force in manga, anime and tokusatsu.  I could go on and on about his contributions including; Kamen Rider, The Toei Fushigi Comedy Series, Brother Fist Bycrosser, Cyborg 009, Android Kikaider but that would take the entire rest of this ask and we have other people to talk about!

Go Nagai was no slouch either.  He pretty much popularized the concept of the piloted giant robot with his seminal work, Mazinger Z.

Before that, of course, we had Tetsujin 28 and Giant Robo but those were robots remote controlled or self-controlled.  Go Nagai pretty much invented the over the top giant, piloted robot.  The success of which lead to a deal with Marvel Comics to license these giant robots for an American comic and allowed the Japanese to use Marvel properties, which lead to the tokusatsu Spider-Man.  Spider-Man was given a giant robot to sell the concept in Japan and that, in turn, lead to the giant robots being added to the Sentai franchise to create Super Sentai.

Go Nagai was no stranger to tokusatsu either.  Among his toku works were;

Star of Pro-Wrestling Azteckaiser

and Battle Hawk

As for Tsuburaya Productions, they had a hand in some anime as well including animated versions of Ultraman.

And one of my personal favorites, the weird anime/tokusatsu hybrid Dinosaur War Aizenborg!

That’s not even to mention all the writers, directors and producers who have worked on both tokusatsu and anime.  An example today is Gen Urobuchi who is responsible for both Puella Magi Madoka Magika

and Kamen Rider Gaim

He’s even currently working on the anime adaptation of one of the grand-daddies of tokusatsu, Godzilla!

So yeah, tokusatsu and anime are so intertwined it would be hard to separate one from the other.  They draw inspiration from each other, share talent and help influence Japanese culture in general.  If it hadn’t been for being in the anime fandom in the early 1990s, -I- never would have gotten into tokusatsu!

This is really only scratching the surface of a very interesting topic and I wish I had more time to get really in depth with it but I don’t.  I hope this at least helps to answer your question.

Edit: I totally loved James Rolfe’s Power Rangers episodes.  He always makes me laugh!

Best Friend vs Best Friend

“What’s up guys (Y/C/N) here and today we are doing best friend vs best friend but (Y/N) you don’t have anyone with you” 

As you said this Ethan and Grayson jumped into frame with you squishing you between them. 

“SOOO the purpose of this challenge is basically to find out who knows more about me but if you have watched me for a while you know that I don’t like simple tags so I’ll let Grayson explain what we have prepared for today” 

You giggled while looking at Grayson’s expression because he looked like a deer caught in head lights 

“Ahh yes yes so both of us will have a buzzer sound and whoever says it first will answer and until one of us gets it right we will keep trying and the person that gets it wrong gets a forfeit you guys sent in” 

You and Ethan nodded before you spoke up again. 

“Now I will leave the frame because I want to make sure this is a fair fight” 

You got up and walked to the chair located behind the camera while smirk 

Let the games begin you thought. 

“So guys ready ?” 

“I was born ready (Y/N)” Ethan yelled

“Ok ok so first question what’s my favorite movie ?” 

“Piu”  

“Ethan answer” 

“The Pirates of the  Caribbean “ 

“Wrong tho it’s a really good franchise” 

“Bzzz” 

“Grayson your guess is ?” 

“(Y/F/M)” 

“That’s … CORRECT” 

Grayson cheered while Ethan groaned thinking about his future 

“So the first forfeit is simple I get to tweet something out of your account” 

“How the hell is that simple (Y/N) you’re probably going to say I got someone pregnant” 

You bursted out laughing because he thought you were that mean 

“No don’t worry I’m not that much of an idiot” 

He handed you the unlocked phone with twitter ready. 

You quickly thought about your sentence and wrote it and handed the phone to Ethan 

“What did you write (Y/N/N) ?” 

“I’m not going to tell you. But let’s get right back to the game. Ready?” 

They both faced the camera making weird faces and nodding 

“So the next question is : Who is my celebrity crush ?” 

Shit. That’s the only look you could describe in the boys faces. 

“Bzzz” 

“Grayson yes” 

“Leonardo Di Caprio” 

“Shit I didn’t remember that one but no.” 

“Bzz” 

“Grayson again” 

“Dylan O’Brien” 

“Wrong again Ethan you wanna take a go ?” 

“Piuu” 

“Chris Evans” 

“Damn you’re answering some good ones but no” 

You giggled at the desperate faces on the boys 

“PIU PIU GODDAMN PIU”

That was your breaking point you fell down the chair laughing so hard tears were streaming down your face. 

“Will you let me answer” 

“Yes Ethan you may answer “ 

“(Y/C/C)”

“That’s correct” 

Grayson looked scared for his life in you made eye contact with him

“Grayson Grayson Grayon your forfeit is… Ethan can you give me a drum role please ?” 

“Gotcha” 

“You need to take a shot of olive oil mixed with soy sauce” 

Ethan was basically losing it at this point and just disappeared from the frame while Grayson was doubting his choices of friends.  

In the middle of all the fuss you prepared the shot and walked back to Grayson with a bucket in your hand. 

Sitting down you quickly handed him the “strong scented drink” 

“Ready BOYYYY!” 

“Yeah yeah the most ready I’ll ever be” 

Walking away from him you and Ethan took cover while he downed the entire thing. 

For a couple of minutes everyone was quiet but all of the sudden Grayson had his head inside the bucket spilling out his guts. 

Ethan decided to play the role of a good brother and got a water bottle while you patted the younger twin on the back. 

A while later almost all the questions had been answered and both twins were tied. 

“So you both are the best friends from the results but it can only be one winner so the last question for the worst forfeit is Whose lane am I on?” 

“PIU” “BZZ” “PIU PIU” 

“Ethan buzzed first” 

“You are on (Ethan’s/Grayson’s)” 

“That’s correct” 

“So that means that Grayson your last forfeit is that you have to make a tweet admiting to one of your kinks” 

Grayson groaned while you came back to the middle of the twins waiting for Grayson to send the tweet . 

“So guys this was the video for this week I hope yous guys enjoyed it and if you did give it a thumbs up subscribe and all of those stuff but more importantly don’t forget to go down to the description to subscribe to these lovely boys because they are truly amazing and super genuine guys” 

You turned of the camera while the guys sat down on the couch making small talk. You turned around and stared at them thinking about the fact that you were so lucky to be friends with someone like those two.
