I’ve noticed something very interesting about the Nevrakis chapters. Specifically Chapter 8.
This is technically the first time, in the books, that all three love interests offer to spend time in private with the MC in the same chapter, allowing the reader to choose which/how many diamond scenes to take (depending on who they are shipping). Liam offers her a night of relaxation in the hot tub attached to his room, Hana plays for her on the piano in the parlour and Drake invites her for drinks in Olivia’s wine cellar. The MC gets plenty of chances for romance in all of them.
But this isn’t the only similarity between the scenes. It also shows how far she has progressed with each of them. We must remember…all three love interests are people who take a lot of time to truly trust people and open up to them. Liam is a man who seems open and friendly but holds a lot of secrets, Drake tends to keep his cards held close to his chest at all times, and Hana is a woman who doesn’t admit difficult truths even to herself, much less anyone else.
Yet, in each of their diamond scenes in this chapter, they reveal to the MC how deep their trust in her goes. This is the first time, for instance, that Liam tells her explicitly that he trusts her. He goes as far as to admit that he would give in to her, given half the chance, and tells her that his brother’s experience of love changed his own mind about love completely. Drake confides in her about the bachelor party photos, something which at this point, is confidential information, and likens her to an innocent deer among predators (a far cry from his ‘crown chaser’ comments in Chapter 2).
Hana’s admission of trust, in contrast, shines through more in her actions than in her words. Yes - like Liam and Drake - she does confide in the MC, telling her about her love for music and her first attempt to rebel against her parents. But the most significant sign of her trust in the MC, is the very fact that she performs in front of her.
it’s so surreal to think that the connection between yoongi, jungkook and pianos isn’t limited to just film, but actually transcends into real life…it makes you wonder just how many of the piano scenes they shot together wererealand personal to them
take that piano duet scene from corpse bride, then picture it with lance and keith. keith is playing the lower notes, expressing his sadness, and lance is playing the higher notes, trying to cheer keith up. eventually they end up playing together, and lance gets a smile out of keith in the process.
During filming, Tom Hiddleston endeared himself to the cast and crew by serenading them at the piano between scenes. At wrap, each day, he graciously shook hands with everyone involved and thanked them for their work, from the janitor to his costars. His clear musical talent and unpretentious behaviour on set quelled any suspicions that the Englishman wasn’t right for the part.
Request: So I was rewatching the demon!dean eps and had an idea cause he was playing piano in that one scene when Sammy finally confronts him. What if deamon!dean x reader fluff where he plays piano for reader or they have to play it for him to calm him down?
Cate & Rooney filming the piano scene 🎹 ,this is one of my favorite moments from Therese & Carol love story 👭 💏 ,because in the book 📖 (spoiler for who has not read) Carol gives a kiss on the forehead to Therese but she hardly perceives it because the touch of Carol’s hands on her shoulders gave her a feeling that in Pat Highsmith’s (author of the novel) words, it was as if time stood still… 💕
In the film adaptation 🎬 , Todd Haynes included his own vision of what could be that moment for both Carol & Therese, we were able to see on screen 🎦 ,almost the essence of what Pat wrote in the book and something very wise of Haynes was to change the notes of Scarlatti by the song of Billie Holiday “Easy Living”, that played to the piano by Therese, gave a romantic atmosphere, besides that the music was more adapted to the decade in which this beautiful story unfolds. 🎼
The kiss on the forehead was not considered by Todd to include on the scene, but i understand the Director’s intention not to do so. In reading we can perceive and imagine the feelings of the characters because the narrative describes them. Visually, these moments of silence, can only be reflected by the details, as that which can produce the simple touch of the hands from the beloved person… 💮 💗 💖
Some asked me which scene was my favourite in 3x04. That’s the one.
Lucifer used his piano as an outlet for his emotions. Whatever he is feeling he can externalise it on the keys and at that moment he cannot.
The fingers are shaking over the keys and they are ready but Lucifer holds back. It’s the fact that Amenadiel is right about almost everything.
He self-punishes himself.
He is no longer sure of who he is.
He is lost.
And all that because he is in love with her.
If he plays the piano, it will betray him like the flaming sword did. The pain, the anger, the confusion, the loss, the love… All blended together in less than 3 seconds.
As for the story from Hell? If you thought it was just for Amenadiel’s sake you are wrong… As Amenadiel told Dan earlier in the episode… What a lonely existence. The one of the Punisher… Who ever wanted to be a punisher of humanity’s filth?

When asked who’s had the happiest 8 years, the cast answered Josh and Julie said he’s been ‘on fire’
Freya has been very active in Hope’s life.
Freya is experiencing peace for the first time in her life, she’s in love and happy, though working to bring her family back together (this was repeated several times throughout interviews)
Caroline is gonna have 3 scenes with Klaus, is also going to have at least one scene with Josh, is hoped to appear in other episodes though nothing is set in stone, and will be calling Klaus out on his shit a lot.

Yusuf said that Vincent has just been carrying on with ‘business as usual’ in New Orleans, he’s been maintaining the stability of the city. He’s comfortable but vigilant.
The cast joked that the best thing about having Hope as a teenager now was that they could be more violent and get back to normal on set, as before they modified their behaviour due to being in the presence of a child
Apparently people called up the studio to tell them not to use ‘real witch spells’ anymore in the show, though Julie insists all the spells for the show are just translated into french then scrambled, and are completely fictional
Julie has a list of people she wishes to see, both past TO characters and TVD characters too.
Joseph Morgan to direct 503
Hayley grows stronger for Hope rather than pine on Elijah.
Though Julie hopes the two (Hayley/Elijah) will find peace in eternity together
Julie felt like now was the time to tell the story of Klaus/Caroline
I summed up the most interesting things Adam said during this interview.
During his first auditions for the role Daron was impressed by how good Adam was at making “fighting sounds”. He thanked his years of martial arts for that.
- When Adam had to come up with a voice for Marco, having seen his pictures, he thought that he looked like a “kid with a sweet demeanor who sort of wants to be a bad boy”, and he essentially used what’s his normal voice, with a higher pitch.
- Adam sometimes feels like he’s reliving his teenage years by voicing Marco, and said that when he read the script for Sleepover he was shocked to see the piano scene, since he essentially did the same to impress the girls over at his house for his sister’s sleepovers.
