quotes about smiling

Guys I’m reading The Maze Runner first book and Thomas is just so gay

I’m gonna talk a lot, so prepare yourselves. Let’s think a little: Thomas describe Newt’s arms/muscles so many times, every time the blond appears or when he is just staring at Newt, even interacting with him… The most time the description is like “the veins of his arms feature while Newt smashes a piece of paper/pick something up” and “Newt’s strong arms…” or anything like this. I mean, Tommy doesn’t foccus on the boy’s muscles, but the pays so many attention in each move, in each form that Newt’s body takes when he moves.

Thomas gave us a detailed description of Newt when he first saw him. While the things are happening (in a short period, I think), Tommy gives us more details — about the muscles (it’s often this, but not directly), his hair (lenght, color, the way Newt likes to use/tie it), even his face. Yeah, I’m talking about the famus quote: 

“The first traces of dawn had crept up on them, and Thomas could see every detail of Newt’s face, his skin tight, his brow creased.” — The Maze Runner, James Dashner

There’s one quote about Newt’s smile too, and I think everyone knows it, but I’ll put it here anyway because it’s a beautiful part of the book: 

“Thomas turned to see Newt there, smiling. That grin sent a wave of reassurance through Thomas, as if he were finding out the world was okay again.” — The Maze Runner, James Dashner

So what the hell do you wanna tell us with all of it, you freak? SOMETHING I ALREDY TOLD YA: Thomas notices every detail about Newt AND WE CAN READ THAT IN THE BOOK. It’s not something that the actors or even de author said — but when these people tell us something, it’s important too —, IT’S IN THE FREAKING BOOK, WITH THOMAS THOUGHTS. Thomas looks/notices a lot of details about Newt every time — or almost — they’re together.

I also could talk about the feelings that we can see when Thomas and Newt are talking, but it’s not a ‘ship defense’ post. It’s more like a prove that Tommy likes these boys. So I’m gonna talk about Minho and Thomas.

I don’t ship it, but I noticed some little things. First of all, Thomas observes Minho’s muscles and body. Not as much as he does it  with Newt, but Minho just really appeared in the middle of the book, and I still don’t read the rest of the series. Anyway, one of my favorite parts to prove all of that is when Thomas first saw Minho. He didn’t know the boy’s name, but Thomas just foccused on the sweat body of the boy, and, look at this: Thomas says his heart stopped when he saw Minho. I don’t have the quote here, but you can search on the web, or take look in the books. This scene is just in the beginning, before the WCKD sends Teresa — or a little after this, not sure. (Before someone points it: I’m not saying that Thomas fell in love with Minho because of the heart stop. I’m just saying he got shocked and started to look at the boy.)

BUT THE POINT IS: Thomas DOES see/watch/notice both Newt and Minho’s bodies. I mean, he really noticed lots of details about these two boys. And we don’t see him doing it with other people (at least until the part of the book I am). He does not keep repeating over and over about Chuck’s arms or hair, and his heart doesn’t stop when he sees Alby, for an exemple. Thomas interacts a few times with Zart and woah, Zart is a big guy, and not fat. Still, Thomas doesn’t keep saying about how his muscle arms smashed the paper or the way he was sweat after a day working.


George has a smile that really warms my heart and brightens my day, I also find it very comforting at times when I really need it. It’s the most beautifulest smile I’ve ever seen.♥


“He was essentially a shy, private young man, but when you got a smile out of George, it lit up the page.” - Mike McCartney,

“But it was definitely his smile that hooked me - this incredibly sexy, crooked grin, almost a friendly sneer (like Elvis, I thought) that etched little lines in his cheeks, bringing your attention simultaneously to his heart-shaped face and his slightly crooked teeth.” - Chris O'Dell

“‘A cup of Rosie Lee, George?’ With a Bahamian cop in the background, holding his cup of tea between takes on the Help! set, George gives me a 'Here you are again, cheeky monkey’ look. He was essentially a shy, private young man, but when you got a smile out of George, it lit up the page.”

“On the set of Help! George is looking over the shoulder of Dick Lester, who directed both the Beatles’ movies. Filmmaking can be an incredibly boring process; we’d hang around for hours waiting for something to happen. To pass the time we used to watch blue movies in one of the boys’ dressing rooms, but even those were boring… unless you ran them backwards! They were supposed to be hugely erotic but we were on the floor, rolling around laughing at all the naughty bits they were doing… back to front!” - Mike McCartney, Remember
