sailing knot

I finally watched Moana and the entire movie is great but you know what? the Rebellious Teen™ not only coming back home and ~showing her village a new way to live~ but actually teaching them was the best thing I’ve seen in years. like we saw her instructing her mother in tying sailing knots. it wasn’t just “oh she did this so maybe we can do this” it was “wow she’s learned so much we don’t know, she has important skills she can teach us”. that last scene added 27 years to my life.

lyrics:
Dick got the girl and he sailed around the world
Two knots, what a lot of time, big book of nonsense is nowhere today
Two knots, what a lot of time

Far beyond these voices and out of the groove
In the dream tomorrow starts when you wake up
Starts when you wake up

Dick got the girl and he sailed around the world
Two knots, what a lot of time, book of nonsense is nowhere today
Why not? Whisper it to me

Far beyond these voices and out of the groove
In the dream tomorrow starts when you wake up
Starts when you wake up

All the streets asleep
All the streets asleep

Far beyond these voices and out of the groove
In the dream tomorrow starts when you wake up

Starts when you wake up
Starts when you wake up
Starts when you wake up

Percy braiding Annabeth's hair

  • Annabeth loves it when he does her hair: it’s super relaxing
  • He’s actually really, really, good at doing really intricate braids 
  • He uses his knowledge of sailing ropes and knots to come up with some cool styles
  • When Annabeth tells him there’s a thing called a fishtail braid he Youtubes it and practices on Sally until he’s got it perfect, and then surprises Annabeth by doing it perfectly for her on the first try
  • “I’m just that good, Chase. It’s got fish in the name, of course I’m going to be epic at it.”
    “You’ve been watching Youtube tutorials again, haven’t you?”
    “…They suggested you wear this with a flower crown.”
  • But he fails epically at just doing a normal, boring, three-strand plait

hey fergus80, this is entirely your fault and I love you for it

He can’t help sneaking glances at the boy as the wind fills the sails of the Jolly Roger, carrying them to the Bottomless Sea. The boy – Henry, he says is his name – scampers around the deck as if he’s known her his whole life. His actions were sure – hoisting sails and tying knots far more complicated than Killian himself was capable of – calling out instructions for Killian himself to follow as they fled the safety of the harbor. And Blackbeard.

His muscles are still weak as kelp from the captain catching him in such a compromising position, the potential whipping for disrespect looming large in his mind’s eye. He’s weaker still from having to carry the captain’s limp form off the Jolly, stowing Blackbeard behind some old, abandoned shipping crates. The boy Henry merely grinned, saying something about adventure and heroics, yet Killian’s never felt more the coward. Stealing a man’s ship, well… Henry may say the Jolly is his, but he’s sure the boy is as daft as the summer’s day is long.

Welcome to Storybrooke #1

a/n: For cs au week day one — crossover. Emma’s life has been broadcast as entertainment to the masses since the day she was born. Killian aims to end the show for good. Or, The Truman Show cs-style.

            Killian taps his fork against the edge of his plate and lets his gaze drift back to the television playing in the Nolans’ living room. Emma’s eating by herself tonight — it’s Neal’s night off, not that she knows it — and she’s opted for her usual grilled cheese comfort food. Her own TV is off-screen, playing one of Storybrooke’s many made-up programs that tout the beauty of staying home. It’s just one of Gold’s numerous ploys to keep her from leaving Storybrooke and even thinking about it sets his teeth on edge.

           Interview after interview have made it clear that Welcome to Storybrooke’s creator and director savours his power more than anything else. The ability that he has to completely shape someone’s life according to his own whims. Killian’s not sure he’s ever hated anyone more.

           Mary Margaret covers his hand to stop his tapping and Killian jolts, realizing that he’s gripped the fork in a fist as he watched.

           “We’re going to get her out, you know,” she says, prying the fork from his hand and clearing his plate.

           “Aye.”

           Killian’s been campaigning to end the show for years, but he’s never made much progress — just one lone, angry voice shouting into the void of millions of loyal viewers — until the last year or so when Mary Margaret and her husband David tracked him down. The sweet, caring half-sister that Emma might never meet opened doors and swayed minds that he — the disgruntled former cast member, or so Gold claimed — could not.
