one of my favorite lines and scenes ever

4

this is one of my favorite anya scenes ever. i love how she’s like “excuse me clarke i gotta interrupt you for a second, but you saved me because you need me”, since her line is very informative in regards to characterization in my opinion. it reflects such a great part of her being and that is that anya is incredibly smart. i mean, whenever i watch it i fall into a glow of frustration because she dies an episode later, but really, let’s appreciate intelligent anya. i also like how they are deconstructing the story here, especially in this moment. you don’t have just one perspective anymore. but we get both sides.

THIS.

This is one of my favorite One Piece scenes EVER. Not only this part, but the whole scene, their conversation, how it ends. I love Luffy’s words, the fact he actually hit Vivi back too.

Literally, everything about this whole scene

The first time Vivi let herself cry and let out everything she’s feeling about her country, her people.
If I’m not wrong, Luffy’s words were actually something in these lines: ‘TRY TO RISK OUR LIVES WITH YOURS, WE’RE NAKAMA’.

Aaaa :’)

A Man Like Any Other - 10, 2, 4 (I cannot and will not shut up about this fic, EVER)

2. What scene did you first put down?

The very first one! I wrote that fic completely linearly. I was pretty much forced to, because aside from the premise of “Rom and Tae should bang in a tomb” I had no idea what was going to happen, lol. I mostly really enjoy that organic energy, though I’m also enjoying having my current WIP largely plotted out already, so I can jump from one scene to another depending on what I feel like writing that day.

4. What’s your favorite line of dialogue?

Always and forever:

“If I were an assassin I’d be a pretty terrible one. I keep confusing killing with fucking.”

10. Why did you choose this pairing for this particular story?

The million dollar question! I used to RP Tae’thelan on tumblr alongside maltrake/wandavon’s Rommath. They started out antagonistic towards each other, and we joked in ask memes about how terrible they’d be together… but of course the sexual tension began, and they kept needling each other until Tae snapped one night and was like “okay, I’ll come over right now”, and Rommath was like “oh fuck, I didn’t think he would”. Long story short, they had an epic sex odyssey, and I was left completely thirsty for a totally weird-ass pairing. I don’t really ship it anymore for various reasons (Legion’s shown I was wrong to give Tae a sympathetic personality under the snootiness; I’ve gradually developed my ‘own’ Rommath who probably wouldn’t like him), but it was an amazing, super fun time in my life. It inspired me to write my first fic in eight years!

Kevin Smith gushing over Tom Cavanagh

Q. Who’s your favorite villain on the show so far?

Hands down, Tom Cavanagh as Eobard Thawne has been an absolute delight.

I mean, I liked his work on Ed, I always liked him, and he’s Canadian so I’m programmed to like him. But my appreciation for Tom as an actor grew when I watched season 1. I’m like, ‘This dude is amazing.’ One of my favorite spoken lines in any media ever is him in the season 1 finale saying ‘Run Barry run.’ His delivery is pitch-perfect. So much so that I stole that line and put it in tonight’s episode a few times.

So I think he’s fantastic, and that was when I just watched season 1. Now I got to work with him in this episode, and there’s scenes that we actually had to trim for time. There’s a whole scene with him and Henry Allen which didn’t make this cut, and they’ll probably put it up online or something like that. So there was a lot more Tom than is in the episode, but he begins our episode very dramatically, in the opening scene that dovetails right off of last week’s.

What I got to see in working with Tom is a 100% actor. A 100% dyed-in-the-wool, born performer. That dude is hysterical. On set, he’s an absolute livewire, he’s fun to be around, he’s funny, he’s quippy, and his quips aren’t like, well, 50% work 50% don’t. 100% he hits, he’s great. The moment they say Action, though *snaps fingers* gone. Absolutely gone. I don’t know if you ever noticed this, but he brings his performance here *draws hands toward himself*. He talks down here and brings you into it *Harry voice* ‘Allen, you don’t know what you’re doing.’ You have to lean in for that performance.

I was there on set and it was funny. I wouldn’t say he’s a loud person when he’s not playing the character, but normal voice and he’s making jokes so it gets loud. Moment they say Action he disappears and dives into character. 100% performer. Honor of the craft. Total wizard with the words and the flipping of character. Some people can do that, but they’re like, ‘I’m gonna go listen to some music and be by myself and get into the zone.’ Tom, man, you’re having a good time with him until you say Action and then suddenly he turns it on and you forget. You’re like, ‘God this guy’s an amazing actor.’

So yeah I love Eobard Thawne and I always loved the Backwards Flash when I was a kid, just by virtue of the fact that his outfit’s yellow! He’s the Reverse Flash! But Tom was a gift and I know that Greg had talked him into it, because Greg had worked with Tom previously. I talked to Tom when I was up there shooting, ‘How’d you wind up…?’ At first he was hesitant or resistant. But without him, how could they have done season 1? So much so that he wasn’t supposed to come back for season 2, but yet here we are with more Tom as Harrison Wells of Earth-2. Luckily they had a spin to be able to bring him back.

So I don’t know, I get to go up and direct another episode in August. I hope to God he’s there for season 3 as well, because I loved it, the whole crew was there, and I see no sign of him going anywhere. In fact, I asked him, I was like, ‘You ain’t going anywhere next season, right?’ I can’t give his answer, but I felt very positive.

Honestly, working with him was a great joy. They say people who play total villains are total sweethearts. Like Alan Rickman played one of the ultimate villains in Die Hard as Hans Gruber, but in real life that dude couldn’t have been sweeter. Same thing here. Tom Cavanagh played a fantastic, malicious, multi-layered, killer performance of what was essentially a comicbook character. Most people would deride it. This guy brought him to life, you understood his motivations. By that end episode, you actually felt for his plight. When he’s in the time sphere and he’s lifting off and he’s just like, ‘Home…’ at that moment you’re like, ‘I hope he gets there, he’s a jerkbag, but…’ And then the Flash comes and ends it all and then the big fight happens. I love Eobard Thawne, Backwards Flash.

I typed all this up, and holy cow guys, this is like a whole high school paper right here. Kevin talked about Tom for a solid FIVE MINUTES without interruptions. That’s the entire length of most star interviews.

okay for the fic writers ask meme: Cartographers of our Minds - 2, 22, 34, 39, and 48! and for Heart Eyes - 1, 3, 35, 41, and 42!!

Cartographers of Our Minds

2. one of your favorite comments/reviews on this chapter/verse?
This one person left me this really sweet comment on chapter 1 about how they love Yuri on Ice and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and they said I’d written the mashup so well already and it was like the first long comment I’d ever gotten on one of my own fics so i was emotional and I STILL AM

22. favorite line/quote/inner monologue from this character?
heck, which character?? I’ll just pick Viktor:

Just let me keep this one piece of Yuuri and not ask questions, let me believe that he was real, even if I never see him again. 

34. a scene/paragraph you wrote that you’re proud of
ksdbfjksb probably this part of the dream sequence:

He sees the lion and is hit with loneliness, knowing why he feels this as a memory now. The last time he raced to pet Shi-tsza, he was meant to meet his mother at the Summer Garden on a cool midsummer’s eve. Viktor remembers the way the water sparkled and how the sun couldn’t seem to set, with people baking by the waterfront, morozhenoe dripping from their lips.

39. any alternate fic titles you were considering for this verse?
you asked me this just so I would have to say out loud that in my documents i have it saved as “Eternal Spicy of the Spotless Icy”
jokes on you, the fic title came at the same time the idea did, so I never had any other titles

Heart-Eyes Emoji

1. what inspires you?
To write this fic specifically? Originally the inspiration was another text-based fic from the Harry Potter fandom! And naturally the need to give Alistair the happiest ending possible

3. what motivates you?
All the good good friends we’ve made from writing the fic! Every single person that has gone out of their way to message me in a tumblr chat has subsequently become a friend, and some of them have become like Best Friends to me now. Aside from Amy’s motivation for my chapters, I couldn’t do it without all my new friends :’)

35. any foreshadowing/symbolism you wrote that you hope readers didn’t miss?
There is some foreshadowing! There’s actually a lot of secret foreshadowing that, like, the readers are supposed to miss :3c
There was also some foreshadowing in the fortune telling in chapter 10 I believe, but it’s impossible to miss that scene. Some day the mystery will be revealed…

41. chapter that was the most fun to write in this verse?
I think… Chapter 8. Alistair with no phone, Zevran showing up, “hit ‘em with the spreadsheets”
It was hard to not be able to rely on texting to drive the relationship and plot forward but it was a good time!!

42. five songs that this character has on their iPod/iPhone?
HECK. I tried to ask Amy and she floundered, the best she could come up with was “indie rock” in general I GUESS. do i need to make a playlist of songs Alistair would jam to while working out or while he’s lounging at home

James Spader Appreciation Week: Day 3- Favorite Scene: The Blacklist, Episode 01 x 07 - Frederick Barnes

There are so many scenes of James Spader I adore. So I wanted to pick one of the less obvious ones. James as Red looked fabulous talking to Lizzie while leaning against the car in the Frederick Barnes episode. And the dialog in this one scene had some of my favorite Blacklist lines ever including:

Every cause has more than one effect

Someone who’s willing to burn the world down to protect the one person they care about, that’s a man I understand

You know the problem with drawing lines in the sand, with a breath of air they disappear

But I’m here because you want answers to questions you haven’t even thought of yet

I’m not going to beg you to allow me the privilege of helping you

So say the word, and I’m gone

Tell me to go Lizzie

some of my favorite things about voltron: legendary defender are, but are not limited to: 

  • hunk’s recurring role as a leg/the legs in the most diverse occasions; 
  • hunk. just. hunk. his existence must be appreciated. 
  • no but seriously he’s really smart and perceptive, and even though he’s easily one of (if not the) character with most comic relief scenes/lines, his characterization is not limited to that and i love it so much. so damn much. 
  • pigde and shiro being the cutest friends/siblings ever (shiro basically adopted pidge do not contradict me i swear will fight you on this. this is really important to me.);
  • also, pidge being tiny and absolutely fucking brutal;
  • pidge in general;
  • the whole team in general tbh, i love all of them;
  • the designs for all the alien species omg seriously the balmerans are gorgeous and frankly refreshing as a species design (the arusians and those green lion planet sloths are really cute too) 
  • speaking of aliens: 
  • ALLURA
  • allura being not only a beautifully well-rounded character but also an absolute badass and an actual goddess; 
  • ALLURA THROWING SHIRO ACROSS A FUCKING ROOM LIKE IT’S NOTHING JESUS CHRIST; 
  • on the subject of strenght, have you seen hunk’s arms? Ripped. the boy is ripped. like, yes, he’s fat, but also clearly very healthy and really freaking strong? this is so good, seriously. when do we ever see that kind of thing? almost never, that’s when; 
  • on that note, how different everyone’s body type is, even with most of them being thin/fit; 
  • keith just. jumping into action and everyone yelling after him;
  • keith not remembering new names; 
  • keith not really getting jokes/being overall pretty awkward but still sassing the shit out of lance; 
  • following up on that other one, keith talking about having bonded with lance and cradled him in his arms like that’s there’s nothing weird at all with his word choice; 
  • lance thinking he’s hot shit and everyone just rolling their eyes; 
  • lance being overall obnoxious but also very sweet and caring a lot about his team?? i love this ridiculous kid??? so much???? 
  • also the fact that lance seems to be the most homesick of them all? it’s so sad  :( ? 
  • back to keith, “I AM YOUR PALADIN. I’M BONDING WITH YOU. HEY!”
  • “Good kitty,” like what the fuck keith where is your brain-to-mouth filter why do you just up and say weird stuff like that, like, do you know what that does to me;
  • talking about lions and bonds: that fucking twist at the season finale hagfsahjsfgkjsdhkk wtf no my heart omg i was not expecting that, holy shit, 
  • the fact that the druids tortured poor shiro but for some god-forsaken reason apparently were considerate enough to heep his undercut pristine;
  • on the subject of shiro: his eyeliner
  • shiro basically parenting a bunch of teens who are probably only about six or so years younger  (at least i think so? idk anyone’s age and that bothers me like hell tbh)
  • also, anything coran says or does at any given moment ever;
  • coran’s moustache; 
My favorite sketch, only because it’s the one I remember and people keep mentioning, is the one with Richard Simmons. Just because I felt we were very committed to that scene. I think it was one of the biggest laughs we ever got on the show. They actually had to edit the laughs when they showed the episode because it went on so long. He was at my crotch for what felt like five minutes.

“Raiders of the Lost Ark” - The Long Take

10

Is there anyone on Earth that hasn’t seen this movie? One of my absolute favorites. Packed with stars and multiple story lines that move along as quickly as Santa’s sleigh on Christmas Eve.

Worth the price of admission just to see Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson doing their best to overcome a crisis in their marriage. Colin Firth, handsome and charming as ever. And let’s not forget Martin Freeman as a soft porn actor. I could go on and on. Every story and actor shine. Andrew Davies at his best since he produced Pride & Prejudice. The man is a marvel.

There are so many great scenes that the gifs will likely spill over.
