can i just say that i am so grateful that the internet hasn’t ruined old friends senior dog sanctuary. some thing are still sacred. nobody has felt the need to make humanized versions and ship art of those sweet dog souls
Side note: I still have another ask from you, don’t worry I’m working on it lol. Not gonna let this one slip by though ;)
3) Ideal car to drive?
I’m going to say right off the bat that I am not an expert on cars. My favorite kind are convertibles, simply because I love the idea of driving on the highway with the roof off and my hair flowing freely in the wind (yes I’m one of those people lol). I’d also love for the car to be purple, any shade would do but I do prefer lavender.
10) Fave location?
I’d have to say that this is a tie between Fireball Beach and Thomasville. I love Fireball Beach because of the cute scene between Lightning and Cruz in Cars 3. I also love the fact that there is a crab sanctuary in the area, like a real CRAB SANCTUARY!!! All the crabbies are safe and well taken care of. I also love Thomasville because it represents the pivotal moment in the movie where the past is relived in the present. I also adore Lightning and Cruz sharing a lap on the old track (I elaborated on this in a previous post, but I just love how Lightning allows Cruz to discover more about Doc’s past with him. He lets her partake in a very personal aspect of his life and he isn’t selfish about it. He could’ve taken that lap by himself or not even bother to pick Cruz up on the way, instead, he allowed her to tag along). Also, the scene with all the letters from Doc in Smokey’s garage… (there are no words in the English language to describe how touched I was by that scene).
I know that this question implies that I should speak about one detail, but here’s a list:
-Doc’s graceful ability to drift on dirt
-Lightning’s genuine smile
-The tears in Lightning and Sally’s eyes when they say goodbye and when Sally sees Lightning push The King across the finish line
-Virtual reality at the training center
-The way the camera man looked at Chick when he said that he beat Lightning
Ones without pictures (could only put so much):
-The way Lightning licks his lips when he’s trying to concentrate
-Cruz’s squeal before racing
-Reflections during the “Life could be Dream” scene
-”When You Find Yourself” song playing in the background during the first Cars movie
-The sleeping contraption in Japan, which was in Cars 2 (also just the amazing world building of the Cars universe in this movie is incredible all by itself)
-The way Cruz and Lightning matched each other in every scene (might do a future post on that)
-The way Cal gets flustered when he’s embarrassed
-Guido’s facial expressions
-Lizzy’s souvenir shop (I loved that snow globe shot!)
The list is extensive but you get the picture. Thanks for asking bb! <3
I have to say Helen. I just love her character so much and it’s fascinating not really knowing everything about her right off the bat. We’ve seen a lot of her past and who she is but it almost feels like we’ve only just brushed the surface. Magnus is such a deep, dynamic character and that just draws me into the show even more.

@missmendelsohn Sorry I took so long with this, but I’m feeling better now, so here goes ^__^
Who said “I love you” first
Nikola. That’s actually canon. He just blurts it out at the worst possible moment xD
Who would have the other’s picture as their phone background
Definitely Nikola. He’s not exactly secretive about his adoration for Helen, nor is he ashamed of it. He probably has a folder just for Helen pics on his phone that he’s very fond of and isn’t shy about flaunting, much to Helen’s chagrin.
Who leaves notes written in fog on the bathroom mirror
It starts with Nikola leaving notes to amuse Helen. At first she just laughs and shakes her head, but eventually she starts responding to them with her own notes, and they end up having full-blown snarky conversations via mirror fog. Sometimes they’ll be total nerds and test each other by scrawling out complicated mathematical formulas that they end up arguing about later in the day.
Who buys the other cheesy gifts
Nikola. He does it to mess with Helen. Also, he’s just a huge sap and enjoys spoiling her. Helen acts unimpressed but she secretly loves how much Nikola dotes on her.
Who initiated the first kiss
Hmm…that’s actually a hard one. I doubt their first kiss onscreen was actually their very first kiss. My guess is it was probably a mutual thing. Both leaning in at the same time. Helen, out of curiosity, most likely, and Nikola, due to the fact that he’s just drawn to her like a magnet and can’t stay away.
Who kisses the other awake in the morning
It depends on who wakes up first. Nikola gets very playful/teasing with his kisses. Helen’s are more tender and soft, to reassure him that she genuinely loves him and is more than happy to wake up next to him every day.
Who starts tickle fights
Nikola. He does it to annoy Helen at first, but she gets him back with equal enthusiasm. Most of their tickle fights end up with them in bed :P
Who asks who if they can join the other in the shower
Nikola. He’s very coy and overly suggestive about it, which makes Helen roll her eyes, but she always agrees anyway. Obviously mutual showers take twice as long, and it’s definitely Nikola’s fault ;)
Who surprises the other in the middle of the day at work with lunch
Nikola. Both are workaholics, but Nikola worries about Helen too much and knows she has a tendency to get so wrapped up in her work that she skips meals. He takes it upon himself to make sure she is well-fed and gets some down time to relax.
Who was nervous and shy on the first date
Neither. They spent the entire time arguing/bantering with each other until Helen had enough and decided to shut Nikola up by making out with him.
Who kills/takes out the spiders
Helen. Nikola is a germaphobe and HATES bugs due to the fact that he thinks they are vile, dirty creatures who have no place crawling around the Sanctuary. In fact, he probably yells and/or throws a fit if he sees a bug anywhere. He especially hates spiders and refuses to go anywhere near them. Helen has to rush to his aid any time there’s one around, and she scoffs at him and calls him a child for overreacting every time.
Who loudly proclaims their love when they’re drunk
Nikola. He doesn’t get drunk often, since he’s a vampire and alcohol usually doesn’t affect him. But on the occasion he drinks his “special formula” that does manage to get him inebriated, he VERY loudly declares his love for Helen, much to her embarrassment. In fact, he probably starts drunkenly reciting horribly cheesy romantic poetry in Helen’s face. She’d have to drag him to bed while he rambles on about how beautiful she is in between hiccups.
