or more like my favorite movies with him

#ok but like i thought people would talk about this more #how she from the second she saw prince ali thought it was aladdin even if jafar said he killed him #this movie is so clever because these three times are the moments she’s convinced it’s him #the first moment she recognizes his hair because let’s be honest, aladdin has a lot of it #the second time, the most obvious one, is when he pulls that ‘do you trust me’ line and move #and then my favorite which a lot of people don’t actually notice when watching the movie #THE DAMN APPLE MOVE HE SUBCONSCIOUSLY DOES TO BE ROMANTIC AND HER DAMN FACE WHEN SHE KNOWS IT’S HIM AND THINKS ‘I GOT YOU NOW, STREETRAT, YOU AIN’T FOOLING ME’ #honestly though bless this movie

i still get upset about robin williams. he was very little to me; meant more to my brother, spoke the best lines in my favorite movies, was a stunning actor. but i, in my head, never paid much attention to things like fame, and loved him like a distant uncle, but distant indeed. i can’t watch those movies the same way. i think about what was chasing him, what was chasing me.

some people tell me they won’t be missed. their lives are not sparks but dull, the regular, the forgettable. that their absence would be a small celebration, that when they left the burden would evaporate and somebody else, somebody better, would spill in waves to fill the empty space. that the forgettable get forgot, that the unexceptional are only spared half of a thought.

but i love the man who let me turn left at a busy intersection even though he had right of way today and i’m still thinking about him. i’m still thinking about the teenage girl i taught four years ago who was spiraling, who came to me and whispered she wasn’t planning on an eighteenth year - who was out of my hands, who was “taken care of” who i tried my hardest for and who still disappeared like smoke in the air. i still think about the girl in my dance class who, when we were both seven, taught me the magic potion of fingers and throats, who kept a secret, who reached out to me just once later to say, “remember when we were young and i was unafraid” and i said yes, we threw barbie heads at the ceiling, and she said, “i’m calling from inpatient. i never forgot that you were my friend. thank you for that. that’s it. the end.”

and at night i tell myself the names of others or i pass their features over my eyes. i think about how our dreams can’t make up faces and how each night like a litany i bring back people to fill in seats, and how some of these people are dead, and how i wake up and barely know them and still miss them. and i tell myself that with all this love i have in a bucket that if i dropped into the sky and took off with myself and painted myself into the ground - i say i’m mediocre. i couldn’t bear it if someone else went off but if i did that’s just fine. the world needs less poets. the world needs less open mouths. the world needs less of me and more people who can function properly. 

and i know you’re reading this and most likely you’ve felt the same thing. that everybody has a life that’s precious unless it’s you, and your untalented unproductive unhelpful self, with heavy hands and a little too much rust in the places that should shine. so here’s the deal. i’ll make a promise and if you keep yours, i’ll keep mine.

if you won’t die, then i won’t die. and we two can live in distant orbits around each other, admiring each other like the other is robin williams, planets that never speak, only listen, two stars with our own complicated galaxies we feel swallowed by - but if you won’t die, then i won’t die.

and if you keep yours, i’ll keep mine. and we’ll remember each other. and we’ll fill up the sky.

I’m glad you noticed <3

My favorite marvel movie character and yes I know that is very strange but it has been that way since the first movie bc i’m like that. 

I saw GotG2 a couple days ago and no spoilers but it made me love him even more ahhh. I had to draw something. This was rendered differently than I usually render things, which meant it was a lot of fun, haha. 

Might have this as a print for the next con i do this year. 

Strawberry Kisses

Pairing: Richie/Eddie

Inspired by @eddiessecondfannypack ‘s post about Richie wearing strawberry chapstick

Richie was almost exclusively seen with chapped lips. He had a habit of biting and picking at them so they naturally became dry and cracked in some places. He learned to deal with it for years, but he wanted to do something to combat it.

So when he casually overhears a conversation with Eddie and Stan talking about food and how Eddie loved strawberries while Stan loved blackberries, Richie gets an idea.

He thinks he’s always deep down felt something different for Eddie, but only in the past couple months of his 16 years of life had he realized he felt romantically towards the small boy. He’d been thinking about telling the boy for a while, but never knew how. He thinks this could be his way.

He meets with the losers the next day at school, the strawberry chapstick he had purchased the day before smeared carefully on his lips. He sits beside Eddie casually, not making a big deal out of anything.

Eddie smells the scent of strawberry almost immediately after Richie sits beside him. He’s confused, to say the least. He doesn’t say anything to the older boy and dismisses it as a one time thing.

But Richie continues to wear the strawberry chapstick, and Eddie continues to be curious as to why Richie, the boy who never smelled bad necessarily, but had his own regular scent, smelled of strawberries.

The following week Richie and Eddie are at Richie’s house, pretending to be working on schoolwork but were actually doing more talking than work. Richie still smelled like strawberries, and Eddie still couldn’t figure out why. He couldn’t keep his curiosity at bay any longer.

“Richie, why do you smell like strawberries lately? I mean…it’s nice and all, but you didn’t smell like it before.” Eddie asks.

Richie’s heart flutters. He’d been waiting for the boy to ask about it, but he couldn’t stop his heart from beating faster now that he had.

“Uhh,” Richie starts, “my lips had been chapped for a while now, and I wanted to fix them. So I got some chapstick to help.”

“Okay, but why strawberry Rich? I figured you’d just get a plain kind, you don’t seem like the strawberry type.” Eddie persists.

Richie takes a deep breath. “I’m not the strawberry type. But you are.”

Eddie’s eyes widen at that.

“W-what? You picked strawberry because of me?” Eddie questions.

“Yeah,” Richie confirms, “I thought if I smelled like strawberry…had strawberry on my lips…that maybe…” Richie trails off.

Eddie is blushing furiously now. Does Richie want to kiss him? Does he want to kiss Richie? He barely had to contemplate that question. Of course he did. The boy was a total whirlwind of a person, but somehow exactly what Eddie wanted.

“Can I kiss you then?” Eddie asks quietly.

Richie’s heart is pounding now. “Please.”

So Eddie faces Richie. He notices now how much softer the boys lips looked after using so much chapstick. He cups the boys face in his hand and goes for it, shyly pressing his lips to Richie’s strawberry flavored ones. He pulls away, only for Richie to kiss him again, this time more confidently. Richie’s lips are soft and plump, and the more he kisses them the more the scent of strawberry rubs off on him. He wants nothing more than to stay like this forever. Strawberry kisses with his favorite boy? Everything was perfect then.

And the next day when Stan asks the two of them why they both smell like strawberries, they just look at each other and smile.

Also, in Dragon Cry, I just love the parallel from the beginning and to the end with Natsu and Lucy.

“What do I look like to you?”

“Like Natsu.”

Natsu, whether the beginning was a silly scene or not, is concerned with how Lucy views him.  More so at the end of the movie after he dragonizes, but that’s just impactful to me.  Before he passes out, he knows how frightening he must have looked (I mean he was HALF freaking dragon), he’s afraid that Lucy would view him differently, and like the beginning, he wanted to make sure that she still saw him as the Natsu she knows and loves.  I think it’s just very touching and beautiful and it was one of my most favorite things about the movie.

You were basically screwed over right now. You and your bestest friends decided to go on a trip to Hollywood, the plane ride wasn’t the smoothest ride ever but as soon as you saw the Hollywood sign you knew you were gonna have fun.

Nope!

You were so f'ing lost.

I saw Spiderman Homecoming today, and it was incredible! It might just be my favorite Spiderman movie, even beating out the Toby Maguire movies. There’s a character that I really loved in it. This character is Ned Leeds, Peter Parker’s friend. He is played by Jacob Batalon.

He’s crazy funny! He had me laughing bunches of times. I really like him, and want to see more of him in the future. Now, there’s a Voltron movie currently in development. You may already know where I’m going with this, but I would love for Jacob Batalon to star in it. So please, can we get this guy,

to play THIS guy!!!

Newsies of New York...do I have a story for you.

So my current job is as a waiter at a restaurant that happens to be right by a professional theatre. Sometimes we’ll get the people who do their shows in for lunch/dinner. I always love serving these people because when do I not love talking about theater?

One Wednesday I look in our reservation book and I see that we have a reservation for 4 pm for 4 people. Now 4 pm is a really weird time bc it’s too late for lunch and a little early for dinner, so that time was usually when I would take my food break. So I was already like “ok who’s making a reservation at 4 pm…”

So it’s 4 o clock and the reservation comes in. It’s a man with three elderly women, I assumed his mother and/or his aunts. I was the only waiter there, so I sat them, and as soon as I sat them down, I overhear them talking about the current show at the professional theatre (which was Clue) so I smile and as I go over ready to serve them I say “Are you going to see Clue?” And all the women point at the man excitedly and said “He’s in it!”

So I start talking to this man (who’s name is Kevin) and I find out that he’s playing Col Mustard, and I tell him that I love musicals and that’s why I’m waiting tables so I can move up to NY.

And then.

THEN.

He asks me…

“Did you see Newsies?”

And I’m pretty sure I looked like I was about to burst into tears as I tell him “It’s my favorite musical!” And as he says that he was in it, I realized who he was.

THIS WAS TEDDY FRICKING ROOSEVELT.

I WAS WAITING ON THE MAN WHO PLAYED TEDDY ROOSEVELT ON BROADWAY AND IN THE MOVIE.

So my little nerd heart couldn’t take it and thank god I didn’t have any more tables bc I was so engrossed in talking to him about when I saw Newsies and how much I loved it and how much he loved it. And all the while he’s looking at me with a look that clearly said that I reminded him of himself when he was my age.

Unfortunately our talk was cut short bc he had a show to get to and I had a shift to finish. So two amazing things happen:

1.) he tells me to aDD HIM ON FACEBOOK. WHICH I DID. AND NOW I HAVE A MUTUAL FRIEND WITH EVERY SINGLE NEWSIE EVER.

2.) When he gets up to leave, I shake his hand. I shook the hand of the guy who played Teddy Roosevelt in the Newsies movie. And I fangirled over him. In that moment, I *WAS* Jack Kelly.

That is the end. I’m sorry I don’t know how to end stories I suck at endings but like this was definitely one of the best moments of my life and I love how much he appreciated it and wasn’t freaked out by my fangirling. Like honestly Newsies are the best.

anonymous asked:

I love your header image (the movie group picture) so much! The subtle sheith in it is killing me, what with Shiro being in Keith's space. If Keith didn't bend his left knee up like that his leg would be right on top of Shiro's. It's just so oddly intimate

i love it too!! we don’t get a whole lot of official art, but I really like this one a lot :,D lmao I love when shiro and keith can just sit anywhere but they’re still squished together

they’re pretty much sitting the same way in that one comic. Shiro why do you keep practically sitting on top of him lmao?? when it comes to each other neither of them have any concept of personal space

also

Keith and Shiro both being really comfortable in each other’s space–especially given how careful about boundaries Keith is–is just so adorable. But ya, the movie one is definitely one of my favorites!! And I mean, if you look at everyone else–they all seem to be really getting into it, but like, they’re definitely louder and more expressive about it? You can see Keith’s nice and cozy and Shiro looks really happy but it’s definitely more subtle? Which does make it feel more intimate in comparison.

I also like how it’s framed. The pictures looks like you could just split it up into separate sections based on how it’s arranged. The garrison trio are all together but Keith is at Shiro’s side instead, because the dynamic Keith has with Shiro is just very different than his relationship with the others, so you visually see that distance. Shiro is also leaning into Keith’s space, and away from Allura. Again, it makes Keith and Shiro kind of look apart from everyone else. 

They also kind of have similar body language (if you look at how relaxed they are and the tilt of their shoulders) as opposed to Allura and Pidge, who are both sitting upright and really paying attention to the movie and have body language that kind of mirrors each other. Same with how Lance and Hunk are both really overreacting (though to different extremes) and you see them both with these very expressive faces and over the top poses, which makes them feel like they’re also in their own scene. So yeah, I like how you can see there are clear divisions in this poster even though they’re all together–and Shiro was meant to be with Keith. (Coran is off relaxing on his own though lmao)

One of my favorite character designs and version of a character 10/10. I saw the Lego Batman Movie and even though I didn’t like it as much as the Lego Movie, it was still super cute and I really recommend it! One of my favorite things about the movie was their take on the Joker.

Now, I haven’t read any of the DC comics with him, but given my disappointment with the Edgy ™ Joker in Suicide Squad I LOVED seeing this genuinely funny, evil goofball on the big screen. He’s everything people generally seem to like about the Joker but a more light-hearted take on it, which seems actually kind of strange given how horrible (like bad guy, not a bad character) he is in everything else. 

Plus his design was super fun to draw too! The only outfit of his that matters is the vest w/ yellow sleeves and no one can tell me otherwise. I just wish they made Harley Quinn’s a little simpler (too much detail for too little color difference, you know what I mean?)

I’ll probably draw more of him in the future, but for no I hope you enjoy!

Alright so Charles Xavier being senile and unable to control his powers was damn brilliant

Like fuck, that’s a brilliant idea having the world’s most dangerous telepath lose control of his powers and accidentally hurt those around him.

And it was brilliant having the intelligent and wise and gentle professor x reduced to such a pitiable, swearing and dirty and rambling state.

He’s still idealistic after all these years.

But he’s not just bitter, he’s broken.

It was honestly really something.

You never considered the idea that the benevolent kindly professor x would ever be…you know.

An old man.

He was an old man but he was more of a mentor figure. He was old but wise.

Now he’s still kind but he lashes out like a child. He’s doddering and rather foolish at times.

He’s helpless in a way he never was before, and I actually felt his weakness more than ever in this movie and that was great.

Watching Charles lose his shit and chant jingles and swear and accidentally hurt people AND BEST OF ALL, actually act like someone who ACTUALLY needs someone to take care of him…I mean it was my favorite part of the movie.

So that was my favorite part of Logan.

i just got home from seeing gifted and all i can think about is how i hope chris evans is happy. like there has never been a celeb i’ve just thought of and went “man i hope they’re happy and having a great life” more than i do with chris evans. i hope whatever he’s doing right now it’s making him smile. i’m so weird. i don’t even know what this post is about go see gifted it’s my favorite chris evans movie now.

First Crush (part 2)

A/N: This is the first thing that I have ever written so please go easy on me. I have written five parts to this story and I’m going to post a new part everyday. I would really appreciate constructive criticism. So, if you think of something that I could do better let me know! So here we go. I hope you guys like it!

PS You can send me requests if you want! I can write about almost any Avenger and their actors. By sending me requests you can help me improve myself.

Part 1   Part 3   Part 4   Part 5


For the next couple of hours all you could think about was what you were going to say and do when you saw Peter after school. You thought about subjects you could bring up if there was an awkward silence. In your last class, you did your work as quickly as you could. You were so impatient, all you could hear was the clock ticking every second. You stared at the clock wishing it would make it go faster. Only a minute left. You  packed your things and prepared to jump out of your seat and out of the classroom.

Finally, the bell rang and you sprinted out of the class and made your way to the main entrance. You could already see Peter waiting for you at the door. You made your way to him with a huge smile on your face. You greeted him and as soon as he turned to you your face was once again on fire. The two of you made your way to the subway station while making awkward small talk. The subway was packed full and you had to stand really close to Peter. Your face was burning and your heart was beating so hard you prayed Peter couldn’t hear it. You kept your eyes down at your feet the whole ride. You were afraid that you would faint if you looked into his beautiful eyes this close.

so im just going to talk about my favorite dirkjake character beat for a minute

Which is this, because like even beyond all the highminded artsy movie references and deep-borne cosmic love thing with these two, this is probably the biggest reason Jake fell for Dirk

Jake is a boy who tries to get into debates about movies literally no one else cares about. Jake loves every movie, but more than that, Jake wants to TALK about every movie, and be really loud about how much it fascinates and delights him every which way.

Jake wants to TALK about his movies, and there’s apparently some movies that he literally can’t get anyone to talk about him with.

Except Dirk. 

Because even if Dirk thinks a movie is the worst pile of shit ever put on the earth, he still won’t be able to help himself when it comes to talking about it and arguing about its merits (or demerits) with Jake. 

And not only that but Dirk is also Jake’s Cool Best Friend who sneaks him early screenings of NEW MOVIES!!! And Jake is such a dork about the privilege. And fuuuck they’re just so cute and i love that they get to watch as many movies as they want now and argue about them forever ;_; they’re happy

He ends up meeting the reader and having a good time but runs away before his watch hits midnight. Reader tries to follow him, but loses him in an alley. All that was left behind of him was his glasses that got knocked away in his frenzy to leave.

Note: Aaaaaaaaaaah! This is like the cutest thing ever.

Warnings: None??

Word Count: 1158

It was 8 pm. Donnie had four hours as a human, if his calculations were correct. As long as he was home by midnight, he was home free. It was foolproof.

“So what are you going to do tonight?” April asked. She looked over the boys as they took in their new human form. It was unbelievable. Just because it was temporary didn’t mean they couldn’t have fun while it lasted.

“I have no idea,” Donatello stated. “We have until midnight.”

“My nieces are throwing a party.” Casey shrugged. “You should drop by. Tell them Casey sent you.”

“Aw yeah, bro! Party time!” Mikey certainly seemed excited. Donatello on the other hand…Parties weren’t exactly his scene. Or at least, judging by all of the movies and shows he had seen, parties probably weren’t for him.

“I-I’m not so sure…”

“Oh come on, Don, how many times are we gonna get the opportunity to go to a human party?” Raph asked. “Even Leo is down for it. Right, Leo?”

“Raph and Mikey have a point. It’s once in a lifetime.” Leo smiled a little, secretly excited. But of course, he couldn’t let his brothers know that.

“Alright, fine.” Donnie gave in. “Let’s go to a party.”

***

The music in your apartment was so loud you could barely hear yourself think. You weren’t much of a party animal, but your sister sure was. You sat in the middle of the living room, book in hand as you tried to drown out the noise. It was an impossible task to say the very least.

There was a knock at the door. A very loud one at that. You got up and opened it, revealing four guys you had never seen. And by the looks of them, none of them had ever been to a party, or at least, not one like this. Their faces were full of awe and wonder as they looked around.

“Can I help you?”

“We’re here for the party, brah!” A short blond boy wearing an orange shirt exclaimed.

“We’re friends of your Uncle Casey.” Explained a brunette in a blue shirt. “I hope it’s not too much trouble. We can always-”

“Come on in. We’ve already got fifty kids here, four more aren’t going to hurt.” You jabbed a thumb behind you. “Pizza and drinks are in the kitchen, the bathroom is down the hall.”

“Thank you.” Said the one in the blue shirt.

“Don’t mention it.”

You returned to your spot by the window and cracked open your book once again. It was a few minutes later that you noticed you weren’t alone anymore. The boy in the purple shirt had taken a seat beside you.

“A kindred spirit?” You asked, slipping your bookmark into the pages.

“Yeah. Not much for parties.” He smiled shyly and pushed his glasses up his nose.

“Me either, but my sister is a party animal.”

“I think she’s over there dancing with my brother.”

“Yeah, looks like it.” You looked over to the dance floor, where the boy in the orange shirt was dancing with your party-girl sister. “Why my parents ever leave us home alone is a mystery to me.”

“But your uncle knew about the party.”

“Who do you think buys the pizza?” You laughed. “God, and he calls himself a cop…”

The two of you chatted most of the night, talking about your favorite books and movies, and it turned out that the two of you had a lot more in common than you would have thought. You told him about the book club you belonged to and the writing club you had found at the library. He was kind and funny and the look in his brown eyes sent your heart racing.

Four hours seemed to fly by.

At 11:55, his watch beeped, and he looked down at it, eyes wide.

“I-I have to go.” He fumbled to get up.

“Really? It’s only-”

“Help me find my brothers.” Donnie looked around the room. Leo was already on his way over with Raph in tow. “Where’s Mikey?”

“MIKEY!” Leo shouted. The short blond jogged over to the group.

“Do we have to leave? The party’s just getting started!” He whined.

“Let’s go. Now, Mikey.” Leo ordered. You watched Donnie with sad eyes. He waved apologetically before making his way out the door with the others. Once they were gone, you went back to your spot. It was then that you noticed the glasses sitting on the chair. He had left them here. You grabbed them and ran to the door and then to the end of the hallway, but it appeared the boys were already long gone.

Now you had an excuse to find him…

***

Donnie was scrolling through social media the next day, monitoring as he usually did when he came across a picture of glasses that looked just like his…the ones he had lost last night.

It read: Seeking My Dork in Shining Armor. He left his glasses at my house last night. He’s got brown eyes, super tall, has legs for days, and he’s the smartest guy you’ll ever meet. If found, please contact me. Thanks!

Donnie’s heart did a back flip. And then a front flip. And then he slammed his laptop shut, earning a look from Mikey across the couch.

“What’s the matter, bro?”

“I need to call Casey.”

Casey came over within the hour.

“What’s the matter, Donnie? What’s wrong?”

“Look.” He showed Casey the post, waiting for him to finish reading with wide eyes.

“What’s the problem? Sounds like (Y/N) likes you.”

“I’m a TURTLE, Casey! That’s the problem!”

“Is it a problem? Is it really?”

“YES! I can’t just go get my glasses back. I can’t just be her boyfriend! She’d see me and run for the hills!”

“I don’t think so.”

“How do you know?”

“Because she’s right there and she hasn’t screamed yet.” Casey pointed to where you were standing in the doorway of Donnie’s lab. “Saw her little ad this morning and decided to bring her by to return them.”

Donnie looked at you. And then at Casey. And then back at you. How had this happened?

“Oh my God,” you took a few steps closer and looked up at the tall terrapin. “You’re even taller like this.”

“W-well, yes, I suppose I…am…That’s all you have to say about all of this?”

“Oh, my bad, here are your glasses.” You held them out to him. He was shocked. You hadn’t screamed, you hadn’t run, and the only thing that seemed to faze you was his height. He could get used to this. “If you’re waiting for some big reaction, it isn’t coming. The whole turtle thing doesn’t bug me.”

“It doesn’t.”

“No, it doesn’t. I still like you.”

“Y-you like me.”

“I thought that much was obvious.” You smiled.

“I-I like you too. A lot.”

“Perfect. Do you have anything planned this afternoon?”

“Not anymore.”
