no casting gods will ever do it better

Man, Shadowhunters fandom was such a fun place to be in when season 1 was airing. Now it’s constatnt whining. 

“Oh, there was not enough of this or that couple in the promos.”
“Oh, don’t spoil us with the promos.”
“Oh, producers should know who is more popular and take notes”
“Oh, this song should play for this or that couple”
“Oh, they didn’t show them having sex”
“Oh, but why did they have sex”
”Oh, I don’t like this character, let’s talk trash about the actor/actress who portrays them”
“Oh, why they changed that from the books”
”Oh, let’s blame actors for what they have written on script pages or for acting out scenes the way the director wanted”
“Oh, Clace/Malec/Sizzy/WhateverShipYouWant deserves better” 
Oh, Oh, Oh…

People if we won’t get our act together, I’m telling you, the cast and crew will stop interacting with us on social media. There will be no fan meets in different countries (by looking at what happened in Paris I’m suprised the one in Italy is still going), no twitter chats, no facebook/Instagram lives. 
And fot the love of God and all Things Holy, I’m begging YOU stop hating on cast’s significant others! What did they ever do to you? I could try to understand the hate if Esther, Sarah or Shelby were mean or rude to SH fans. Honestly, I’ve never seen those girls be anything but nice and sweet. 

Light

- (after the reunion, JamesThomas appreciation week day 1) -

In the morning, everything is different. There are birds chirping outside, the ceiling is high and wooden, the shuffling of nesting creatures the only other sound besides his breath. James feels tired down to his bones even as his mind is relaxed and calm.

Turning onto his side as his body wakes is hard but worth it for the sight that greets him.

Thomas.

Thomas, his hair golden in the light pouring through the gap in the shutters, flecked with grey that gleams like molten steel. His face is slack in sleep, relaxed, lips parted ever so slightly, and James is powerless to resist the surge of love and grief that fills him.

God, he loves Thomas. With everything he is and everything he will ever be, he loves Thomas. Silently he promises to be the man Thomas deserves, to cast aside his past fears and be better. For Thomas he can do anything, even let go.

He takes Thomas’ hand and brings it to his lips. Thomas stirs, confusion passing over his face as he opens his eyes.

“You’re still here,” he murmurs. “I thought it was a dream. But… you’re here.”

His voice is so small that James almost weeps. Instead he smiles, moving closer to draw Thomas to his breast. “And so are you.”

Thomas laughs under his breath and breathes in. James does the same, smelling the straw and sweat of the room and feeling himself become grounded.

The light played across the now tanned skin of Thomas’ shoulder and James traced his fingers over it, wonder filling him at the way Thomas has changed and how he is still so familiar…

“You’re beautiful,” he whispers. “Like some earthy god come to tempt me from the world…”

Thomas chuckles and kisses his neck. “Am I to be Persephone and you the lord of the dead?”

“Nothing so obvious,” James tilts Thomas’ face up and looks at him, taking in the shift of light over his blue-grey eyes. “But either way, you’re stuck with me now.”

Thomas smiles and kisses him, holding him close and smiling into the kiss. “Good. I’ll hold you to that.”

So Close (Part 3 of 5)

Pairing: Lin-Manuel x Reader

Summary: This started as a 4+1 setup on Lin asking you to marry him. It devolved into a study of a year plus some in a relationship, and how you can be so close to the end and yet so far in the blink of an eye.

Word Count: 7414 (oh god I’m so sorry)

Warnings:  Badly translated Spanish, lots of swears.

Notes:  I do not speak Spanish, nor have I ever been on Broadway. I put a lot of research into this stuff to make it seem as realistic as possible, but if you can tell me how to fix a situation or change a translation to make it better, please let me know, I’m happy to listen.

I took a lot of inspiration from random things, but I want to point out some of my sources because they are important.

  • The Hamiltome gave me most of the original cast/crew names and timelines for when things happened (transfer to Broadway, opening night, etc.) I also heavily relied on the timeline on the Hamilton Wiki page.
  • One of the recurring quotes throughout this work comes from Peter Pan. Kudos if you know it.
  • The song [Y/N] sings is Still Hurting from The Last Five Years. Many versions exist of this beautiful musical now, and one movie adaptation. Link
  • One text and the last lines come from prompts by @caceerps. There are plenty others where they came from, please go look!
  • Ileana Ferraras really is Alex Lacamoire’s (very beautiful) wife and she is a professional life coach, which came in handy here.
  • Spanish translations are courtesy of Reverso Contexto. Better than Google, but I’m sure, not infallible. Let me know if I’m way off the mark.
  • Title comes from the Jon McLaughlin song of the same name. It is the over arcing theme song for this fic. Link

This is the first thing I’ve written in at least 5 years, and it’s the first thing I’ve written for a Broadway fandom in 10+ years. Please be kind.

post-finale thoughts on 2moons

And we’re done! This show has been endearing, and while it has its flaws, I did enjoy keeping up with it, and will miss the boys until next season! Meanwhile, here are my notes.

What I enjoyed:
- The actors are lovable, and immensely committed to the show.
- The chemistry is genuine, especially with godbas and kimcop
- The lightheartedness of a cheesy asian drama, with LGBT representation in its characters
- The dialogue in certain areas is so witty and adorable. Just the right amount of bite but not ill-intentioned
- 2moons has the ability to capture certain moments well. Especially with emotional shot-design and utilizing the chemistry the actors have with each other

What can be better:
- Like I’ve said, the layout of phayo’s storyline. They tell much more than they show, and it’s not the most enjoyable way to consume the story in TV form.
- The representation (or lack thereof) of female characters on the show. Women are not a threat to BL pairings. Take a page from SOTUS’ book. Women are not magnetically attracted to men and set out to separate them. Women can also be gay or bi, they can be friends, they can be advisors!
- The reliance on jealousy storylines/turning on each other. There are more intriguiging ways to show relationship drama than fear of someone stealing your SO. Please use them.
- The “rape” jokes? I’m pretty sure these were lost in translation in the eng subs, and that it would be more akin to “seduction” or something of the like, (which I understand is just another thing that’s prevalent in the culture of asian dramas) but it’s still kinda uncomfortable. Also with future behavior of the characters: please don’t romanticize ignoring a lack of consent!
- Lastly, the dom/sub dynamic that’s heavily hammered into phayo. I understand establishing the seme/uke thing is a marketing thing, and while I don’t support it, I can see that they felt the need to do so. What I wish is that 1) it wouldn’t be assigned as the majority of the relationship dynamic, and that it wouldn’t rely so heavily on the stereotypes of “what it means” to bottom or top, and 2) that it wouldn’t tie so heavily into the dom/sub dynamic. I get that selling pha as the dominant, caregiving top, and wayo as the submissive, bashful bottom is what does well, but I think the show would do better for its characters if it strayed from these stereotypes/ploys and focused on telling the story personally for the characters. (My headcanon: Pha may be tall and handsome, but he’s also a sweetheart and would do anything for wayo, would probably give him any control he wanted? Wayo might be shorter and cute, but he knows what he wants and he doesn’t just submit to teasing or bossing? They’re not limited to the roles they’re perceived in?) And anyway, topping or bottoming has nothing to do with physical or personality traits? It’s just whatever you do with whoever that you like?

TL;DR: 2moons is a fun show about young love. It isn’t without flaw, but with its wonderful cast and their love for each other, it might steal your heart, and it retains the potential to grow even better. It’s a cute, carefree show with LGBT characters and it’s worth tuning into if you’re ever bored. (And with the understanding that it is problematic in places, but strives to be light. For someone used to more mature LGBT storylines, this will likely require patience.) To Bas, Cop, God, Tee, Kim, and Tae: thanks for this season, and we’ll see you soon! Take care.

I need to make a post about something going on in the Voltron fandom. I have this blog, and I have a good following, so I’m hoping to use this as an opportunity to educate and help people understand that the threats and bullying you do online is just as bad, if not worse, than in person. 

People threatening, accusing, cornering, and even verbally assaulting the cast/crew members has me absolutely baffled. Whether you have your own reasons or not to confront the people who worked on the show, to lower yourself to this level where you have to attack others because you disagree with something shows your inability to control your damn emotions. The characters ages, and romantic relationships aren’t important to the show as a whole, it’s important to you which is why you have a temper tantrum when things don’t go your way. Stop acting like mindless children. These are REAL people who you’re lashing out on. You guys NEED to learn how to channel your emotions better. You would never want this kind of treatment thrown at you, especially when you’ve done nothing to deserve it, so why in the world do you feel the need to be a hypocrite and do it to other people?

Treat these people with some god damn respect. The cast and crew have done more than you could ever hope to accomplish with this show, and we should be celebrating their success rather than trying to trip them. 

You may be young adults, teens, or pre-teens, but this stuff will follow you. You can be arrested for this, even if you’re under the age of 18. Other people will see how much of an asshole you are no matter how well you try and hide it afterwards. So shape up, find a more civil approach, and move on.

KATY !!!! I would absolutely love some kdrama recs!!! > o < ) 99 (also I see you're watching suspicous partner!! I'm stuck on episode 29 rn lskdjf)

oh my goodness, rachel!!! i’ve been on episode 21 of suspicious partner, so i’m pretty behind 😂😂 (bUT IT’S A GOOD SHOW THOUGH)

here are some kdramas that i’d definitely recommend ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Note: I’m not the greatest at giving summaries, so I’ve included links for you to click on the shows if you’re interested. You know, to read more about the dramas.

You’re Beautiful (2009)

One of the cutest kdramas ever, and also very amusing. On top of that, it has a pretty good cast and some very nice osts heh. 

Master of Study (2010) (also called God of Study)

One of my favorites of all time, actually. It’s got a couple of really funny bits here and there. But I gotta say, it’s also a very motivational/inspirational kdrama. It encourages you to do better for yourself and your education ;v;

Can You Hear My Heart? (2011)

Such a heartwarming family kdrama. If your heart doesn’t melt when you watch this show, I don’t know what will (you might even tear up sometimes oh my). Also features a very lovely piano song that you can listen to here

Rooftop Prince (2012)

A HILARIOUS SHOW. Really it is. But like, it also has this family drama that’ll make you go, “excuse me wh a t”. Not necessarily a historical kdrama, but it involves time travel lol.

Master’s Sun (2013)

It’s got a couple of scary elements but nothing too scary, I promise! (because I can’t handle horror at all alsjf;lasjf) It’s a little sad, though. You’ll sympathize for many of the characters in this show. But it’s also very heartwarming and has humorous bits every now and then ;v;

It’s Okay, That’s Love (2014)

Such an amazing show. It focuses on a lot of mental illnesses, which is really interesting. For sure, it’ll make you cry. So, I don’t know, have a box of tissues nearby … just in case?? Very uplifting and comforting. Also, quite amusing.

Kill Me, Heal Me (2015)

VERY VERY GOOD. The plot is amazing, you have to watch it. Like you really have to. Maybe a little too intense for some people, but that’s what makes it so good. Pretty sad, I must say. Your heart will break. Oh, one thing to point out, there’s a little bit of a plot twist, soooo be on the look out for that.

The Girl Who Sees Smells (2015)

Such an exciting mystery/thriller. The suspense will kill you, I swear. It’s also a very cute and amusing show. This is the kinda show that you’ll definitely wanna watch if you’re looking for something that’ll leave you going, “HMMMM. OH MY GOODNESS. WHAT EVEN.”

Remember (2016) (also called Remember: War of the Son)

One of my favorites of all time. A very exciting, thrilling show. Focuses on law, too. So if you’re into legal dramas, you should check this one out!! Also very very sad, you will cry. If you don’t cry, you amaze me. And one last thing, you will hate the antagonist. 

Defendant (2017)

An excellent legal drama. Also a very good thriller. The plot is fantastic. It’s the kind of show that’ll make you hate the antagonist with a passion, in my opinion. 

Lookout (2017)

A kdrama that’ll make you go, “oH MY GOODNESS NOH. STOP RIGHT THERE. WHAT IS YOU DOING.” Great acting and a pretty good ost. You’ll be baffled at how a prosecutor can be so evil. (I’m really into crime/thriller/legal dramas lmao)

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon + Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (2017)

I’m sure everybody’s heard of these shows somewhere. And if you haven’t seen it, you might ask yourself, “Is it worth the hype? Is it that good?” To be honest, it is that good and I think it’s worth the hype. Both are very adorable shows, you will literally feel very fluffy watching these two. And since they’re both considered comedies, you’ll find yourself laughing a lot. Charming osts, too. Got a couple of nice k-indie tracks ; U ;

Duel (2017)

I’m currently watching this one right now and I’m just loving it. It’s got science fiction involved, which is pretty cool. And it’s really intense, but that’s what makes the show SOOOO GOOOD. Although I gotta say that it’s a little freaky, this drama has a couple of medical things that’ll make you go “oi vey.” if you’re not all that comfortable with medical stuffs. This show ended a couple of weeks ago, so now I get to watch it without waiting for new episodes huehue.

I rambled so much asjf;asldfj sORRY. It’s just that all of these kdramas are very 👌👌👌

fictionandforelocks  asked:

hi do you ever think about how much better the secret history would be if the entire main cast was made up of lesbians because I do

sweetheart, I do that with everything, although I WILL SAY that I cannot believe God placed me on earth at the same time a lesbian production of Heathers: the Musical was created, and therefore cannot begrudge the lack of lesbian orgies in this book when a song called “Our Love is God” is sung by 2 women in the middle of murdering a violent man exists elsewhere in the world.

That said, it is a truth that should be universally acknowledged: lesbians are collectively way too smart to fuck up as badly as the characters in this book did. 

anonymous asked:

How are you enjoying Echoes? I feel like a lot of people don't like the new mechanics...

Echoes is strange. Whereas most Fire Emblem games are strategy games with JRPG elements, Echoes is a JRPG with strategy elements. At least that’s how I see it. In that way I’m having a lot of fun with it!

I find it hard to rank in comparison to other FE games simply because it’s so different. I don’t think it’d crack my top 5, honestly, but it’s really enjoyable. I’ll try and break down what I liked and didn’t. No spoilers!

AN ODE TO CANDICE PATTON

2014, the year that CW aired its pilot of The Flash; comic book adaption about the fastest man alive, Barry Allen (The Flash) played by loveable Grant Gustin. A forensic scientist’s life takes a turn into the fast line after a freak accident allows him to possess superhuman reflexes. Of course this was an exciting time for comic book fans everywhere but especially for women of colour. You’re probably thinking, how is a show about a white man who can real fast relevant to me, an independent beautiful woman of colour? Well, today we pay our respects to the striking Candice Patton, she isn’t dead, just severely underrated.

For those who aren’t familiar with the show, she plays reporter Iris West, the love interest of Barry Allen. Initially, her casting caused a lot of controversy because a black woman playing a canonically white character? In this economy? However, once the show started Candice Patton really proved that she was here to slay and funnily enough stay as the show is still running with its viewership higher than it’s other CW comic book adaptation brethren.

Growing up, I had always felt isolated when watching my favourite comic book films because there was a heavy emphasis on the white damsel in distress and I just couldn’t relate to such a character. As a young girl, I thought getting kissed in the rain by Spider-Man would be the greatest thing ever but seeing Candice Patton’s Iris West made me realise that I can strive for much more as a woman of colour. She plays the part of Barry Allen’s childhood sweetheart in unison with the role of a fearless reporter and manages to rise in a male driven show. Casting Candice Patton as Iris West is probably the smartest move CW has ever made, no shade just facts.

Nonetheless, Kirsten Dunst (Spider-man, 1999) and Kate Bosworth (Superman returns, 2006) have somewhat become a distant memory as Candice Patton paves the way for actresses of colour to find their way into the comic book adaptation world. Since 2014, we’ve seen a surge of women of colour filling roles that white women have played in the past and doing may I say a better job than them and it’s God damn poetic. In Spider-man homecoming (2014) not one but two of Peter Parker’s canonically caucasian love interests, Liz Allan and Mary-Jane Watson, are played by the beautiful Laura Harrier and Zendaya, two talented young black women. Making Homecoming one of the most diverse comic book movies I’ve ever seen, especially since Marvel have built ‘qwhite’ a reputation for themselves in the past. Now, we look forward to Black Panther gracing our screens in 2018. Progression has never been so colourful. On our favourite netfilx shows, our favourite sai weilding assassin previously played by Jennifer Garner, now the role of Elektra Natchios rightfully belongs to Cambodian, French actress, Elodie Young in Marvel’s Daredevil and recently Defenders. I wouldn’t be able to finish writing this article without mentioning Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple (Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Defenders) Dawson is of Peurto Rican, Afro cuban and Native American descent. Her character, Claire Temple also known as the night nurse, is somewhat the golden thread that ties the whole Netflix universe together. She shows us that sometimes heroes don’t have to be super to do what they do. Furthermore, in the DC cinematic universe, Kiersy Clemmons is set to play Iris West on the silver screen alongside Ezra Miller’s Flash. I, an avid comic book reader would love to continue seeing women of colour playing such iconic roles.

This really goes to show the positive effect of diversity in media today. Essentially, Candice Patton was the start of something important. TV is for everyone, thus we should have characters that appeal to the fast moving society that we live in and let me break the news to you, that society isn’t white. Without Candice Patton’s Iris West, we might not have had Zendaya’s MJ or Anna Diop’s Starfire. Therefore, we do not accept the slander of Candice Patton or Iris West in these walls because her character now stands for something greater than Barry Allen’s love interest. So, Candice, my Queen, you’ll never read this but I just wanted to thank you on behalf of young girls everywhere for making Iris West into an icon even though some people may not be aware of it yet. You’ve made history.

super cute and nerdy Sirius and a badass Remus I am here for this

  • Sirius in thick, knit jumpers
  • Remus in swoop neck t-shirts to show off his magnificent collar bones and making everyone he crosses paths with swoon
  • Everyone being really surprised they’re together because opposites but also really not surprised because everything just seems to fit with them
  • Sirius having to push his hair away from his face constantly when leaning over a book to study and then Remus (who isn’t studying at all but just has his chin resting in his palm watching Sirius study) reaches out and does it for him before he can do it himself
  • Sirius who gets made fun, his books knocked out of his hands
  • Sirius who, in the classes he shares with William McLaggen, is afraid to raise his hand because last time he got a black eye for it
  • Sirius who gets shoved around in the hallways so roughly that bruises liter his arms and back - his knees are scraped from hitting the stone floor
  • Remus who picks up all of his books for him and promptly hits McLaggen and his gang’s books up and right into their faces so it smacks right into the bully’s noses
  • Sirius who glares around the classroom whenever Sirius raises his hand earnestly to answer a question, and Remus who smirks as the fucking bullies slump low in their seats under his gaze
  • Badass Remus where the whole school knows his little furry secret and are fucking terrified of him for it like “You better be nice to Lupin- he’s a werewolf.”
  • Remus who shoves anyone who dares to shove Sirius against the corridor wall, pressing his fingers into their throat and telling them very quietly, very calmly, “Do that again- Do that ever again and I swear to god: I will end you.”
  • Remus the protector
  • Remus who, at the end of the bad days, leads a shaking Sirius up to the prefects bathroom
  • He kicks everyone out, casting lock, protection, and silencing charms until Sirius feels safe
  • Remus who is only ever soft with Sirius
  • He presses tender kisses to his face before wrapping him in a big white fluffy towel and leaving him only to fill that bath tub (swimming pool, really) up
  • Sirius letting Remus pull him into the hot water, letting it sooth his aching muscles
  • Remus who pulls Sirius against him, kissing every bruise that’s in reach
  • Tracing his wand along every scrape and watching it close up and heal in an instant because he can’t stand to see Sirius hurting
  • Remus the healer

Turned out a little more fluffy than intended but I might have gotten caught up with Remus The Protector

I made a deal with the devil when I was seventeen

Said whatever you want, I’ll give to you

If you only make me feel that my tears might cool your hot skin,

That I might extinguish you, and our time together might make us again angelic.

She said, be part of my body.

I said, I’ll do you one better: I’ll think with your brain, too.

There were one hundred and forty pounds of extra weight hanging off

Of her right palm, open always. In the heat I wept for her,

But sweat dripped from our body ever more,

And in no time she had cast me off; It took three hours, since I clung.

In the time between the first contact and the last, she did what devils do,

But I was guilty of a much greater sin, having still a promise to God in me

(at that time):

I struck the bargain.

there are just SO MANY things wrong with lincoln’s death i don’t know where to begin. even just in the context of the show itself, we have yet ANOTHER poc character dying (albeit “honorably” in some way, and even that’s debatable) to further the storyline. yet another minority used as a plot device. what makes lincoln’s death even more fucked up is placing it in the context of the real world.

ricky whittle quit the show and has come out multiple times about jason rothenberg being a bully, that jason was greedy and self-centered (wanted all the attention), in addition to being controlling of his cast (limiting their soc-med interaction) and this is not even bringing the manipulation of the lgbt fandom into the equation. 

ricky whittle, who quit the show on his own morals, who had likely spoken up against jroth in the past BEFORE his death scene, was killed off in the most disgusting, vile way possible

in a world where black men are always seen as inherently dangerous just for existing, in a world where unarmed black men are being executed in the streets by authoritative figures, jason rothenberg made the executive decision to shoot lincoln’s death in a way that directly paralleled this disgusting reality that black men live in. 

lincoln was shackled, made to kneel, and then executed by a man in power. he was unarmed, entirely defenseless, and he was shot in the head. not only did they execute him, they then apparently showed the shot in slow motion, with an absurd amount of gore, and then panned to a wide shot of lincoln lying, dead, in the mud. because that’s not similar at all to the way black bodies are paraded on the media, right? (remember mike brown lying in the street for hours, anyone?) 

THEN, to add to this vile ass shit, jason rothenberg has not said a word. he didn’t live tweet the episode, he didn’t even bother to pen out even an “obligatory” goodbye message to ricky or even thank him for his portrayal of lincoln, a fan favorite character since his fucking introduction. 

no one can convince me jason didn’t make that death as gruesome as it was out of petty ass “revenge” for ricky standing up to him. no one can convince me jason didn’t do that shit on purpose, and it disgusts me even more that not a single person in that writer’s room, on the camera crew, or what the fuck ever, apparently didn’t look at this script and say “this is fucked”. 

and lol remember how steve talley, the white male, racist, misogynist fuck that he is, got his character written out WITHOUT death? lmao, jason. lmao. 

and people wonder why the cast seems so fucking done with this show. god. please let this show be fucking cancelled so this cast can be free to go off and do bigger and better things. i’m so happy for ricky and alycia but i’m so sad for the rest of the cast who’s stuck working with this fucking muppet for another season.  

sonnet-of-joy  asked:

Is there a particular reason you read your own audio books? Please don't take this the wrong way, I love it! I'm just wondering why you do it as opposed to having an actor do it.

But I do have actors do it: Lenny Henry did ANANSI BOYS better than I ever could have done it. The Readers of AMERICAN GODS (George Guidall, and the Full Cast Audio) and the Full Cast Audio of The Graveyard Book are brilliant.

But I do it when I can because I enjoy reading my own work aloud, because I hope that having the author read his/her own text can clarify things for a listener, and because every now and again I win awards for it, enough that I don’t feel like an amateur anyway.

Hold That Pose.

Clarke hires a model for her rapidly approaching art show, when the perfect man shows up at her door, even though he’s two hours late, she can’t bring herself to be that mad.

Aka the one where Clarke accidentally mistakes Bellamy for a model and photographs him naked.

Read it here or on Ao3


“Finally!” Clarke exclaimed as she opened the door. “You’re over two hours late!”

She strode off to go set up her camera. It was make or break now, she had finally got her first prestigious art show, at one of the most popular art galleries downtown, so she could not screw this up. Problem was it was on Friday and it was Tuesday and she still didn’t have her headline piece. Enter: handsome man at the door.

“It’s a good thing you’re exactly what I was looking for,” she shouted over her shoulder. Then seeing him standing dumbfounded in the doorway, continued. “Well, are you going to stand there all day? Come on, inside!”

He began to cautiously enter the room, still looking a little apprehensive. Ugh, Clarke thought, they sent her a rookie. As she raked over his form with an appraising gaze, she couldn’t find it in herself to complain anymore, because he really was perfect.

I’m really excited about season 4 of AHS (especially the freak-show aspect), but I hope that three things happen:

- More male stars. Of course it was amazing to see an almost entirely female cast for once, but near the end I felt like the writers just didn’t know what to do with the characters other than have them fight for who is more heartless. Plus the first season had a good male to female ratio and obviously that worked very well.

- Emma Roberts doesn’t return. I swear to God she is the most bland actress I’ve ever seen and she can’t do more than two facial expressions at best.

- Less focus on gore and more focus on actual horror. Anticipation and fear of the unknown is a much better way to get into the audience’s brain than squelching sound effects and fake blood.

someone please put this poor fucking concept out of its misery. rip off that $6 eBay wig douce is in kerosine and set it ablaze so I never have to see that discolored synthetic train wreck ever again. wipe that blocked-up look off your damn face and relax, eat some bran cereal and look up time shares, get away for a while, don’t come back on set. you will not be missed. I feel like I should sue the entire production and casting team of the death note drama for emotional distress ever having the absolute displeasure of stumbling across this god damn travesty. this entire drama needs to do better.
