This is the best teaser there ever was. The way with every piano note, a different review pops up, my eyes swell up with pride and pain, everytime I see this. The ending of the teaser is so dramatic and sensational that it feels like both Elio and Oliver are running out of time; which they were, but they never kept count.
Yes, this is how I spend my time waiting for the film.
Soooo @inky-chimera and I have been talking about a Cuphead AU for our characters… And this is what we came up with!! I.

Prompt: I would love to read anything with 40s!Bucky just generally being a sweetheart/cuddly. I think 22, 73, 81, 90 and 94 are the best ones of those bunch for the time period. (Especially since “short skirts” were just barely above the knee, haha.)
22. ‘Come over here and make me.’ 73. ‘The skirt is supposed to be short.’ 81. ‘I may be an idiot, but I’m your idiot.’ 90. ‘Who gave you the black eye?’ 94. ‘It must be hard with your sense of direction. Never being able to find your way to a decent pick-up line.’
A/N: THIS WAS SO CUTE TO WRITE. MY GOD. 1940s!Bucky can play piano for me ANYTIME. Anyway. Thank you to @1940sbarnesgirl for the adorable prompts!
It seemed like hours and then slowly turned into days since he last saw her. Was their argument truly that upsetting? Was she really gone for good? He had taken his sorrows out on his piano. Hammering on the keys in tears and weeping over the wooden object in despair when his music didn’t bring her back. At least her disappearance had awoken his muse. Sheets of music notes scattered all over the study. All the lights had been turned on and the house had looked lived in. Well, lived in by a lonely seeming bachelor. Maybe she really was as upset with him as she claimed. Should he have taken her concerns more seriously? A bunch of thoughts passed through SS’s head as he moved around in the living room noticing there were so many pictures of her family but none of them. Since when did he become so sentimental? “Of course i’ve grown soft. The woman makes me soft…” he grumbled as he folded his arms along the fireplace mantle and rested his head. Melancholy taking him over in one giant swoop of thought. “Why does the lady torture me so? Is it an endless punishment for not being a very welcoming man? Where is the understanding… the unity in our love that overlooks what she might perceive as a flaw of mine,” he muttered to himself.
Interior with a Woman Seen from Behind. Carl Vilhelm Holsøe (Danish, 1863-1935). Oil on canvas.
The lady prepares to practice on the hammer piano which belonged to Holsøe and was sold at auction in 2012. The piano appears repeatedly in Holsøe’s paintings of interiors. The auction house wrote “Holsøe piano; A George III mahogany and satinwood hammer piano. Marked Adam Beger, Londini, fecit anno 1788. England, late 18th century.”
I still need to write birthday fics for some friends, but I think that Bartolomeo Cristifori deserved a birthday fic and I knew just what to write.
Big thanks to the wonderful and incredible rebornfromash for betaing. I love you so much darling!!
A party. Soul was throwing a party for death’s sake. He hated his own birthday, but this, this, was a special occasion that “needed to be observed with the highest respect and celebrated in the greatest fashion.” So there she was on her way to Kid’s mansion to see what the hell Soul had planned for this party.
Whether they’re fans or detractors of Steinway — and there are many of both — top artists are looking not for bells and whistles but the inspiration that comes from playing on a superb instrument, superbly prepared by a knowledgable technician. And inspiration, of course, is as individual as a player — and as a top-of-the-line piano.
“When the piano responds on all dynamic levels, from pianissimo to sforzando and fortissimo, and gives the pianist tonal palette, you never want to leave that piano bench,” says Garee. “It’s when that particular instrument went together, when all the stars went together, material science, geometry, engineering, and the resilience of the piano hammer to respond to its soundboard. When all that comes together, it doesn’t matter what brand it is. It’s magic.”
