so i went to see the lightning thief with @angelicomma yesterday and um. oKAY GUYS GALS AND NONBINARY PALS LEMME TELL U ABOUT THIS MOTHER!FUCKIN! SHOW!!!! because it was SO GOOD this is just like. the short list of what i loved about it because oh my god
prepare for the longest post ever
the set was such an aesthetic? it was all very metallic like there was scaffolding and greek columns with graffiti on them? it was very chb and very nyc and overall a Blessing
every time they needed to show a different location they’d do it with the lights so like there were these lights lining the scaffolding that would change color ?? in the underworld they’d flash red, yellow and orange and were made to look like fire and near the ocean theyd be blue and if they were talking about trees itd be green and! if they wanted u to focus on a certain part of the scaffolding it’d be a different light color than any of the other parts which was rad af
the overhead lights were used really well too like when percy was singing about being the son of poseidon or when there was water the lights would be blue and when they were in the forest theyd be green
there is an entire song about how they hate new jersey and how they refuse to die in the garden state. know this
the show was very low budget like oh my god it was great
they didnt make some of their own props so sally walked in once with a trader joe’s bag and also the most important bag in the world (containing the master bolt) was a fucking jansport
their representation of water was just to attach toilet paper rolls to leaf blowers and turn the overhead lights blue like what even
they covered the first 4 rows in toilet paper at one point
also they fuckin deca-casted everyone except for percy (chris mccarrell, the light of my life actually he was so good)
jonathan raviv played chiron, auntie em, random chb girl in a bike helmet and braids (?), random tractor guy (?), a bus driver, a train conductor, hades, and poseidon and im probably missing someone. he had very distinctive characters for all of them not to mention horse puns
“the gods are kind of dicks”
medusa’s eyes were just light up swim goggles
sarah beth pfeifer, who probably has the best comic timing ive seen ever, played clarisse, katie gardner, a fucking squirrel?, mrs. dodds, lotus casino girl, random camper assistant to mr. d, and thalia
*chases annabeth down a flight of stairs with a sword while screaming*
“for their sixteenth birthdays my friends all got cars. I got a fern and a mason jar!”
“ARROWS ARE MADE WITH WOOD. I REFUSE TO PARTICIPATE IN AN ACTIVITY THAT CONDONES VIOLENCE AGAINST OUR ARBOR BRETHREN!”
they had the most roles and they were GREAT
george salazar was such a wonderful grover and mr d oh man
mr d’s whole gag was he’d kick a chair when he got pissed which was hysterical bc the camper assistant would start pouting every time and he also wanted to turn percy into a dolphin
“grover, are you ever going to wear pants again?” “NOPE!”
his solo song was about thalia and how he couldnt save her talk about EMOTIONAL he cried
“we might have more drachmas if you didnt spend them on those DAM SNACKS” “HEY! IT WAS THE HOOVER DAM”
let me talk about. carrie compere for like multiple hot seconds bc GODDAMN GIRL CAN SANG
she was such a good sally. can she be my mom. she sang a song abt percy being special and wonderful and i got a lil teary
“you saved my life, percy. It’s time i learned how to live it.” cryin g
her silena was really funny? like very whiny but very funny.
“every time i bring a boy home, my mom’s there in her nightie […] she steals my mascara and all my dates!”
she also played sort of charon? underworld guide in this awesome gold dress (she looked SO GOOD) who smacked grover’s goat ass (?????)
“you know, bringing people to the underworld isn’t my only job. I also have a band. wanna hear a demo?” “not really?” “sorry, i can’t hear you over this SWEET ASS RIFF”
“We got everyone! we got kurt kobain, we got beethoven. any requests?” “um, do you have josh groban?” “we will.”
JAMES! HAYDEN ! RODRIGUEZ! was sO GOOD AS LUKE
THERE WAS A GOOD KID REPRISE AND I WAS SHOOKEN
“being a good kid gets you nowhere at all” bruh
they couldn’t have a scorpion onstage so luke just. fucking stabs percy in the back???
He was also a really funny ares and gabe!!
ok and my gal KRISTIN STOKES
fun fact abt me and kristin stokes ….. so we were walking in the same direction after stage door and so me and @angelicomma just walked with her….to the train…. she gave us dessert recs…… and talked about the show (she’s so salty about how rangey her big solo is but trust me she was so good on that song) and also waitress with us…. it was the best experience of all time she is so nice and cool and was wearing jurassic park leggings how rad is she oh my god
her annabeth? was awesome? she was witty and tough and aggressive and i was ABOUT IT
she called out sexism all the damn time
“annabeth, i get it. do you know how many schools i’ve been kicked out of?” “yeah, percy, but when boys mess up they get a second chance.”
“hey, annabeth, who’s your dad?” “he’s a history professor.” “i thought everyone’s dad was-” “a god? that’s my mom. sexist.”
longest yeah boi ever
the moment where she betrayed luke at the end??? YES GIRL
chris mccarrell was such a perfect percy i am elated
“Tartarus? LIKE THE FISH SAUCE???!!!?!?!”
*swings riptide like a lightsaber while making lightsaber noises*
*packages medusa’s head* “To Mount Olympus. Signed, Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase.” “the gods will think we’re impertinent!” “*winning smile* we are impertinent.”
*pouts* “i know how to hold a sword! like this!” annabeth corrects him and he swings it “oh wow actually that’s a lot easier”
in good kid he was like? running around the stage and climbing the scaffolding and shit? and i cried??? the no mom line was the WORST i wanted to actually scream and his voice is so pretty
and he was so shook by his own powers oh man
he was just. so good at the twelve year old thing it was fantastic he was all fidgety and Dramatic ™ god bless
he loves sally so much!!! all the demigods were salty af abt their parents and he was just quietly singing like “my mom loves hugs and scary movies” and i just. screamed quietly
there were rlly cute percabeth moments too.
percy’s knocked tf out the first time annabeth meets him (she infiltrates his dream a lil) and he sings a lil song abt how she’s beautiful and stuff and he wakes up and she’s all “YOU DROOL IN YOUR SLEEP” shook
she shows up at capture the flag (percy hasnt officially met her yet) and he points at her and was just “gasps YOURE MY DREAM GIRL!” and annabeth side-eyes him hardcore and he goes “UM. THE GIRL. FROM MY DREAM.”
“the god is my mom. sexist.” “NO NO I LOVE GIRLS!” annabeth is shook yet again and percy panics and is like “I MEAN UM THEYRE VERY NICE”
percy gets serious side eye from luke
when percy gets stabbed they almost kiss and then grover RUNS ONSTAGE “HEY! here’s your ambrosia percy” goddamn it was DRAMATIC
im definitely missing shit but oh boy it was so so good
i’d kill a man for that soundtrack
if you have the chance (and the money) it’s just. such an Experience and everything i could have ever dreamed of. the cast is great (and theyre all so freakin NICE s/o to kristin especially).
In ur opinion what r Jensen and Misha's best angles
i’m not an expert on misha’s appearance and i don’t want to piss off the misha stans so i’m only gonna answer about jensen and probably piss off the jensen stans
this is his best angle
shot toward his left side, with his head either angled a little bit down (first gif) or a little bit up (second gif)
with jensen, it’s all about his nose, ears and jaw.
if u get him head-on, his ears pull focus away from his face. (i mean, they’re cute as shit, but u get what i mean.)
when it’s shot toward his right side with his head tilted up, his nose looks extra thin and pointy, also pulling a bit too much focus. however, this is definitely the best angle for that magic jawline and with making his chin look more defined.
shots toward his right side also make him look 10x more masculine than he does from his left. it’s because of the way his nose curves. from his left, it looks like it curves up in a cute little point. from his right, it looks like it curves down. i prefer the more feminine angle, and it seems spn does, too, because most shots are toward his left. (go watch the episode misha directed. every fuckin shot of dean is toward his left side. same, misha. same.)
evidenced most obviously in his selfies, jensen ackles……has no chin. or a lot of chins. it’s hard to tell which. in selfie angles, his face kind of just disappears into his neck and makes it look like he doesn’t have a jawline. now, i’m all about a pudgy chin and soft jaw, but i’d prefer jensen’s face not to bleed into his neck like in these selfies.
his jawline is a mystery even to me and is really more dependent on how he moves his face than what angle the camera is. however, there is obviously a major difference between this
where he has no defined jawline whatsoever and looks very soft
which u can cut a loaf of bread with.
i think the reason why i’m so drawn to jensen’s face is because, to me, it looks completely different from every goddamn angle. he could move his face half an inch to the left and i’d gasp in shock at how different he looks. i’d say he doesn’t really have a bad angle, but i definitely prefer some of his angles over others.
(all gifs are from season 9 to avoid a major difference in age or haircut.)
yeah, i think there’s been a bunch of things this year that kinda stick out in my mind. and obviously, scoring your first goal or your first point… it’s obviously up there and i mean, when i got that, there was honestly no better feeling at the time. and it’s something that i’ll remember for the rest of my life. —— lawson crouse on his rookie season with the arizona coyotes.
Alright darlings!!! You asked and I wrote– this was supposed to be a thousand words of smut for my thousand followers, but things got a little out of control. So here’s Chapter One… of an unspecified amount of smut. I mean this very well may turn into a full size fic because I got this idea of Tony being bored with his soldiers and trying to tease them into being kinky with him and… well anyway. Just read it lol any and all ideas are welcome because I love this so much already.
I love all my readers and followers!! You guys are the best!! Thank you so much for all the love you show me and my fics!!!
Tony was going to be the death of Steve. Bucky too, of course, or at least probably, but Bucky was more used to this sort of thing, this sort of—thing. That Tony was doing. With his mouth. And a–a–lollipop.
Bucky had been teased and chased by girls and guys for years before the war. He was used to the flirty, dirty things girls did with candy and drinks that were meant to get a fella thinking about… about that. So Bucky. Bucky would have been fine with this.
But it was gonna be the death of Steve.
He was literally barely keeping it together, sitting at the kitchen table, so hard in his pants he was sure there would be a wet spot on the front of his khakis if he stood up. So he definitely wasn’t standing up and he thought he would die if he kept sitting there but what else could he do?
Because Tony, his sweet, perfect boyfriend Tony, was sitting primly on the counter chatting with Natasha, his legs kicking the air innocently, laughing over something she said, and sucking on a lollipop like it was the best thing he’d ever tasted.
A big one too, one of those multi colored, swirled, eight or nine inch things you only got at candy stores or fairs.
And right now, Tony’s perfect little pink tongue was lapping up and down the damn thing, his lips looking sticky and sweet as he sucked on the end and every few seconds he’d give a little sigh and lick his lips before putting a few inches of it in his mouth and—
It was only a couple stops
in on his renewed tour that Steve (with Pepper’s know-how) switched tactics (a
little) and shifted to promote wellness activities for the elderly instead of
just ways to help them vote and access local civic services.
The man he’d met (Arthur,
he’d learned) that was in the very first photo that went viral had said
something that had stuck with Steve – the seniors had to find a way to get to
the services they needed, rather than the other way around, or even meeting halfway.
He’d been doing some
research between tour locations and a number of places around the world had
started to combine senior housing with student housing or senior centers with
preschools. Steve loved the idea and was
determined to raise enough funding and public interest to get several similarly
structured locations off the ground in New York.
With every then-and-now
photo that was published and every visit he made covered by some sort of media,
he inched closer to his goal and in his spare time he arranged calls or (when
possible) meetings with city planners and developers and educational
administrators and care providers.
It was little more than a year
later when a preschool-senior center opened up in Queens. Steve was there for the grand opening, and to
watch Arthur and a little girl with pigtails do a puzzle together.
Izuku lay on his hospital bed, cold sweat clinging to his skin. Not that he would notice himself, completely immersed in the nightmare that plagued his dreams at the moment. He would not notice the sheets he kicked off, in the disarray state of his hair, in the twisted grimace that spread across his face. The hospital room itself was deathly quiet, save for the rapid breathing of Izuku and the soft breathing of the red and white haired boy sleeping in the adjacent bed. Izuku had no way of noticing how when his breath hitched and turned into a quiet sob, the boy next to him began to stir.
