Blizzard: This genius ROBOTICS 11 yr old girl MIGHT be our new Overwatch hero! Look at how much she loves making DRONES haha! You know DRONES, right? The REMOTE CONTROLLED devices? Haha she loves them.
People: WTF why are we gonna shoot an 11 y/o child?!
This is one of the most beautiful films I’ve ever seen. The story, the details and the characters are so inspiring and deep that I was kind of shocked when the movie was over. Indie movies are the best, man.
I really like the contrast and the connection between science and religion, and this movie used this theme very well. I was expecting a boring love story but it ended up messing me up for weeks because I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
The cinematography and the soundtrack are amazing.
The actors are so beautiful, damn. If you like hot people talking about science and religion, that’s it. Astrid Bergès-Frisbey made me question my life choices.
Stop saying that this film is not scientifically accurate because no one cares!!!! The story is good, and that’s it. It’s a movie, not a Stephen Hawking’s theory. And it’s not about religion either, it only ‘explains’ the connection between the ‘spiritual world’ and science.
ok so hear me out: College!Binu ft. laundry & extra 4stro
binu living in opposite towers in a residence hall but on the same floor so their windows essentially face each other
so literally every morning when Bin wakes up he gets to rest his eyes on the beauty that is nerd!Eunwoo getting ready to get to class
and also gets to hear the sheer noise that is MJ/Sanha
ok so naturally Rocky and Jinjin being the ever-observant roommates catch him staring more than once out the window at the beautiful boy with the glasses from the east tower
and endlessly tease him about it
but Bin doesn’t even try to defend himself or his rep as a Bad Bad Boy™ because honestly he is also a Hoe™ for beautiful things he’s not going to deny himself this pleasure
until one day eunwoo looks up from where he’s studying by the window
and catches bin’s eye and smiles
and bin immediately chokes on his coffee because what the hell it’s one thing for someone to be this pretty but it’s another thing for someone to have an amazing eye smile smh iLLEGAL
‘hyUNG HE SMILED AT ME’ @ jinjin
jinjin: ‘yeah sure son u sure u aren’t dreaming’
rocky: ‘no hyung idt bin is lying he’s still looking this way’
bin: (spluttering) ‘whAT DO U MEAN HE’S STILL LOOKING THIS WAY’
and rocky and jinjin are just cackling because Bin is such trash for this boy from the east tower and he doesn’t even know his name
also that one time when Bin tried to take a photo of Eunwoo sitting at the window in the evening because the way his face was lit up was breath-taking but his flash was on and he had to duck away before he Got Caught™
ok so over at the east tower this is how it goes
sanha: ‘hyung that creep’s from west staring again’
eunwoo: (still staring very hard at his textbook) ‘yeah he’s incredulous about how loud two smol beings can be’
(background sanha: ‘bitch i’m taller than u’) mj: ‘yeah well i think he’s starING AT YOU EUNWOO I THINK SOMEBODY HAS A CRUSH ON U’
eunwoo: (pushing up his cute ass glasses) ‘yeah well he’s p cute too’ (goes back to his work) and for once mj and sanha are stunned into silence
and so mj and sanha make it their Mission to wingman eunwoo and rocky and jinjin make it their Mission to wingman bin
ok so one time jinjin and rocky are in the dining hall to grab dinner & they run into the terror twins
sanha: ‘omg it’s u it’s u ur the one eunwoo hyung keeps looking at’ and gets hit by myungjun bc 1) why can’t this boy shut his mouth and 2) he mistook rocky for bin which is frankly q a feat they look nothing alike
and so after many clarifications and shouting over each other 4stro settles 3 facts:
1) nerd boy’s name is eunwoo and he thinks badboy from the west tower is ‘p cute’
2) said badboy’s name is bin and he wears too much eyeliner and snapbacks and he’s been pining away at the east tower for the longest time trying to secretly catch a glimpse of eunwoo
3) both bin and eunwoo need to get their shit together
upon finding 1 out bin lets out an embarrassing squeak that he swears never happened and disappears into his blanket fort because even though he tries to be a Bad Bad Boy™ he is actually just a soft pupper
now he knows beautiful boy’s name!!!! eunwoo!!!!!!! beautiful!!!!! just like him!!!!!!11!!1!!1 amazing
he is so soft for eunwoo it’s incredible
and when eunwoo finds 2 out all he does is push up his glasses and blink confusedly @ mj and sanha bc thank u very much but what is he going to do with this information
and so now that 3 has been established by 4stro, 4stro decides???? they need???? to have a game plan???
so plan number 1 is set into motion they send both eunwoo and bin down to the printer at the same time because somehow both sanha and rocky needed to get a worksheet printed At The Same Time How MystERioUs!!!
but because bin is grumpy at having to tear his gaze away from the window he is down and back up with rocky’s worksheet in a flash
and eunwoo just stares weirdly at sanha’s very hopeful expression and question of ‘so did u meet anyone,,, special??? downstairs????????’
the answer is no
and so plan number 2 is set into place mj and jinjin send eunwoo and bin to the dining hall to fetch cookies because ‘don’t question ur hyung u lil shit just get me the cookies’
and so bin goes down grumpy as usual to grab a cookie for the most annoying hyung in the world
he doesn’t see eunwoo but hoo boy eunwoo definitely sees him
and he sees the way the crowd in the dining hall parts for this gorgeous boy and the way this group of girls excitedly start whispering and the way some people’s gaze lift from their food as he walks past and the way the lights flash on bin’s ear piercings
and he sees the way bin carefully puts a couple of cookies into a box (how can someone??? who looks so tough??? be gentle with cookies????? he finds out later that it’s only bc bin hella loves food)
and he sees the way bin commands attention even though all he’s doing is being hella grumpy and decides then and there that he cannot Deal with talking to bin when there are So Many People watching so he just hides behind a pillar and waits until Bin strides back out the hall
and so when eunwoo gets back up he just stares weirdly again at mj’s very hopeful expression and question of ‘so did u meet anyone,,, special??? downstairs????????’
the answer is no and a very suspicious eye twitch because angel eunwoo cannot lie to save his life
but from that point on eunwoo just keeps staring shamelessly out his window into the room in the opposite tower and ducks his head whenever bin looks his way
bin swears eunwoo is staring at him but he figures it’s just him projecting onto eunwoo
at this point mj and jinjin are so dOne with their dongsaengs like u lil shits please
so one night sleepy baby bin is hauling his laundry down to the laundry room because hell he doesn’t have any clean clothes for tomorrow so even though it’s 11pm he gotta do that shit
and he’s in his soft pajama pants and rattiest hoodie loading his clothes into the washing machine when eunwoo comes round the corner
wearing the softest sweater and his cute ass glasses and carrying a neat laundry hamper
like literally who folds their clothes before putting them into a laundry hamper fricking cha eunwoo that’s who
and so sleepy baby bin is just dumping his clothes in and eunwoo just freezes because this is the Grumpy Bad Bad Boy™ in the west tower but instead of being in all black he’s wearing his huge ass glasses and he’s in his pjs and he looks so soft and huggable eunwoo wants to cry
but bin suddenly looks up because ??? shit he forgot to bring detergent down and he doesn’t want to go all the way up to the 12th floor to get it he figures he might as well borrow from whoever just walked in and he looks up and
eunwoo lets out an embarrassing sqUEAK
and grumpy baby bin turns red so fast like whAT WAS THAT SOUND DID THAT RLY COME FROM EUNWOO
WAIT IS THAT RLY EUNWOO
o good lord it IS eunwoo what do i do what do i do whAT DO I DO
and eunwoo’s frozen and he can’t say anything because 1) wtf the guy he’s been staring at for the longest time just talked to him and 2) he,,, can’t understand,,,,,,,,,,,,
and so bin clears his throat and has to squeak out ‘hi can i please borrow some detergent i left mine upstairs’ in a slightly calmer voice
he lies, he’s not calm at all
and when eunwoo, wide-eyed and wondering what he did well in this life to have the most gorgeous boy he has ever seen acknowledge him and use his detergent, hands him his detergent bottle, bin flushes red
and because we all know bin is smooth af he says something like ‘i can totally make it up to you with a coffee tomorrow?’
or rather, he thinks he says something like that
because it went more along the lines of ‘ah coffee yes tomorrow????’
and poor baby eunwoo??? standing there in his soft sweater and his glasses being all confused???? doesn’t understand what bin is trying to say???? me too eunwoo me too
until bin clears his throat and flushes even redder and holds eunwoo’s detergent bottle back out to him goes ‘can i make it up to you with coffee tomorrow?’
he wants to stab himself wtf who asks the most beautiful person in the world for detergent and then coffee
and it’s eunwoo’s turn to stand there mildly shocked (read: hella shocked) and accepts his detergent bottle back with a quiet ‘yes, alright’ and a small smile
bin is internally combusting
eunwoo is also internally combusting
so when bin flies back upstairs and screams at jinjin and rocky they smack him on the back and coo at how Grumpy Bad Bad Boy™ binnie finally gets his first date with nerd boy from the east tower
and before eunwoo can even open his mouth mj waves a text from jinjin in his face and screaMS EVEN LOUDER AT EUNWOO ABOUT HIS BABY ANGEL EUNWOO GOING ON HIS VERY FIRST DATE!!!!!!!!!!!
bin can totally hear it but he’s grinning to hard to care
i’m grinning too hard to care
i rly love binu
i rly love astro fluff
moral of the story if you see a cute guy in the laundry room please talk to him
not that i have ever i hate myself
inspired by the cute sleepy boy i saw in the laundry room at 1am this morning
Okay. But consider this. Ice skater extrordinare Eunwoo and hyped up fanboy ballerina Moonbin showing Eunwoo how to do a spin on a non slippery surface on metal slabs of thin blade
oh my god !!!!! yeS ANON I LOVE IT THANK THA N K i got this during work and yelped a bit a lot
ok so Bin’s dad’s friend has a small job opening and he’s looking for an intern to temporarily fill the job
it’s mostly just working backstage for a show
and this mostly consists of cleaning the green room before rehearsals start, putting up a buffet line for staffs and performers and sweeping the green room after everyone leaves
and also a lot of busy stuff in between like shadowing stage managers and following whoever needs help and stuff
idk how to say this in english but in singapore we call them saikang warriors
and so Bin’s dad, looking at his son’s plans of lazing around the house all summer, signs him up immediately without even asking Bin
not that he really needed to ask Bin
because the moment he mentions “The Ice Prince: a Musical on Ice” as a casual conversation starter Bin leaps at him and starts talking a mile a minute about the most amazing lead actor slash ice skater
truly what is that title why am i bullshit at naming things
and when Bin’s dad casually slips in that his friend might have offered Bin a job as a backstage crew intern
cr a z y
backstory time Bin is a danseur in a small ballet school
i mean, he’s easily one of the best in the school
if not for Minhyuk he’d easily be the principal ballerino too
and recently his ballet teacher brought their class out to watch the musical, saying something about paying attention to the muscles needed for ice skating and how that compares to ballet and something else about the choreography
although honestly the moment Bin laid eyes on the lead actor he’ll admit everything his teacher asked him to pay attention to flew out of his head
forget the plot, forget the musical, forget the choreography
all he paid attention to throughout the entire thing was the lead
how he executed beautiful bracket turns and butterfly jumps and death spirals and biellmann spins
i’m so sorry if i get this wrong rip i’m reading off wikipedia as i go if anyone knows anything about ice skating or ballet feel free to correct me!!!!
and all the while singing and delivering his lines perfectly
literally ????? Bin’s idol
so naturally when Bin‘s offered the chance to work backstage and meet cha Eunwoo, ice skater extraordinaire,
he jumps at the chance (no pun intended)
and so the first day he walks into his new job, in a simple black t-shirt and fitting jeans, nametag affixed on his shirt, bright and eager to help wherever he can,
only to see Eunwoo casually doing a split in the middle of the green room
oh my god
in the flesh
in real life
casually, in a t-shirt and loose sweats
in the middle of a room
i mean Bin can do a mean front split balance, sometimes en pointe, sometimes not, but
truly he has never seen someone look more beautiful doing a split than Cha Eunwoo
Eunwoo isn’t even smiling he’s so focussed on stretching
His hair is totally mussed up but he looks so regal still
Bin is so shook
But he swallows the nerves and goes about with his mop and starts cleaning up around the room
In relative silence
Until a very amused voice comes from the back, “you can stop avoiding the centre of the room now, I’m done stretching"
And wow truly Bin has heard Eunwoo speak before
I mean, obviously,
Given that he’s in a musical
But wow his voice irl??????? A magical???
Bin thinks “Ice Prince” is a great title because Eunwoo’s voice sounds kind of like if you have a glassful of ice and was clinking it around
And Bin flushes and scrambles for a response and goes: “uh yessir"
Only for Eunwoo to laugh
And wow really if you think his voice with a hint of smile was beautiful
His voice with a lot of smile
Bin’s not sure how fast you can fall in love with someone without meeting their eyes or looking into their face directly
But he’s pretty sure that voice has him already dead
"don’t call me sir, I don’t think I’m that much older than you"
And he really doesn’t think so - this new intern looks about 20???
There’s no way he’s that much younger than Eunwoo
And Eunwoo is pretty young too, if he does say so himself
"I’m???? the new intern yes hello"
Cute when flustered, Eunwoo’s brain notes
Must fluster more, Eunwoo’s brain notes
"yes, I gathered"
Cue Bin spluttering because wow what possessed him to inform Cha Eunwoo, star of the show, now sitting cross legged in the middle of the room, that he, an intern, mopping around the room, was (guess what?!) an intern
Must fluster more, Eunwoo’s brain insists
Ok fine, Eunwoo thinks, I’ll get up and go over
Maybe follow some romance field manuals
Lean close to him and make him blush or whatever
(Haha "or whatever” playing it cool here, Eunwoo, Eunwoo’s brain snorts)
Cue Eunwoo trying to get up from the floor
Cue Eunwoo’s foot deciding it would be hilarious if he couldn’t
Cue Eunwoo tumbling back onto the floor
Bin: oh my god
Bin: oh mY GOD ARE YOU OK
Because this is the lead actor on ice!!!!! what is he going to do if he can’t move !!!!!!!!!
Eunwoo just chuckling in embarrassment because
Wow truly good job, foot, Eunwoo’s brain snorts
If you weren’t so busy staring at the very fit new intern perhaps I would have moved better, Eunwoo’s foot retorts
Eunwoo’s brain is stunned into silence for a while
@ Bin:“Ah it’s normal"
@ Bin: "Lmao did u expect people on ice to be that graceful on land too"
"But you look so good on ice????? You do all these beautiful bracket turns and spirals and splits and??????”
Eunwoo flushing because wow it’s one thing hearing it from coach Jinjin and from critics but hearing it from this cute human blinking at him from behind a mop????
It’s a whole new level of praise
Maybe it’s because you think he’s cute, Eunwoo’s brain hums
(Oh my god shut up???)
Eunwoo flushing even more
Bin, now slightly embarrassed bc Eunwoo hasn’t responded other than blushing quite a bit: “well yeah I bet you’ve heard it quite a bit before"
Eunwoo, attempting to be suave and saying "well, not from anyone as cute as you are” while leaning back on his hands
Not today, his brain cheers
Eunwoo landing on his back with his hands splayed out like he’s cheering too
He’s crying inside, he really is
And cute intern boy is probably leaning on his mop and judging him now, Eunwoo doesn’t dare to look
Until he feels feet shuffling alongside him
He opens his eyes
And looks right into Bin’s worried ones
Wow his eyes are really nice
His hair’s really nice too
Jesus what is this intern
“uh are you alright” @ Eunwoo
Bin’s gripping his mop and blinking anxiously
And Eunwoo’s trying to stand up and get his bearings but
Immediately falls on his ass again because heck nobody’s supposed to be able to stand up from a lying position that fast without getting dizzy
And all that echoes in Bin’s mind is "lmao did u expect people on ice to be that graceful on land too"
And slowly he starts to smirk
Because Cha Eunwoo, ice skating extraordinaire, prince of the ice rink and king of musical theatre,
And is currently lying on the ground blinking up at Bin with the most beautiful eyes with the darkest eyelashes Bin has ever seen in his life
And for a while Bin is speechless, staring mindlessly at Eunwoo,
Until he remembers courtesy lmao and offers to help Eunwoo up
And Eunwoo’s clutching onto Bin’s hand praying that Bin doesn’t mention anything about how he’s basically a klutz on land but then all he sees are bright eyes and a toothy smile and
Bin, hauling Eunwoo to his feet: "Wow you can spin all you want on ice but the second you get on dry land you’re basically a klutz aren’t you"
agree with him, Eunwoo’s brain demands
Eunwoo, stuttering a bit: "um yes, probably”
And he sees Bin’s face crinkle into the cutest smile and decides that as much of a lil shit his brain is, it’s worth embarrassing himself to see this boy smile
And they stand awkwardly there for a while, Bin leaning against his mop and Eunwoo not-so-subtly staring at Bin’s face
Until Bin coughs and Eunwoo startles and
“Well I should continue str-"
"Uh I should go back to clea-"
And they both laugh because wow clean or stretch all you want all you’re going to be thinking of for the next hour are each other buddies let me tell you
Eunwoo sliding glances over at the cute intern occasionally
Eventually deciding to attempt to do a scratch spin in socks
Even though coach Jinjin tells him never to try anything not on ice because he’s just an idiot with two left feet when he’s not on ice
But to impress the cute guy mopping his way around the room???
Yes, Eunwoo’s brain says
Do it, Eunwoo’s brain says
And so Eunwoo gets into position and starts trying to push off into a spin
No, Eunwoo’s feet suggest brightly
Fall down! Eunwoo’s feet suggest, beaming
And so Eunwoo does, staggering against soft cushions laid strategically around the room by Jinjin, familiar by now with the nonsense Eunwoo tries to pull even though he’s not on ice
And so Bin watches as the Ice Prince, star of the show, impresser of multiple ice skating judges,
Trips over his own feet into a pile of cushions on the floor
And usually when younger danseurs try Fouetté spins in class Bin snorts and leaves a nicer person (usually Minhyuk) to help them
But this time,,,,,,,,,,,,, Bin can’t help,,,, but,,,,
He pushes his mop to the corner and toes off his sneakers and slides over to help Eunwoo up from the pile of cushions
His feet are big, Eunwoo’s brain helpfully supplies
You know what else is bi-
Eunwoo shakes his head violently and takes Bin’s outstretched hand and gets up
Just in time for Bin to let go
(Eunwoo’s hand silently mourns the loss of rough warm palm against his own)
And execute a perfect fouetté spin
WHAT THE HECK IS THIS INTERN
Eunwoo doesn’t even bother hiding it he just openly gapes at Bin
Like ???????????? WhO
"ah,,, I’m a danseur” ok tbh Bin’s a little unnerved by Eunwoo’s staring like he’s handsome and all but
Bin really can’t take anymore staring or looking into Eunwoo’s eyes because wow truly he’s standing close enough to count Eunwoo’s eyelashes if he looks up he might have a heart attack and cry
Eunwoo, echoing: “a danseur,,,,,,,,"
Ok that explains all the lean muscle & fitness & it definitely explains the perfect Not-on-ice scratch spin Bin just did
not his cute smile though, eunwoo thinks that’s just a him thing
"A fouetté spin,” Bin quietly corrects
He said that all out loud ??? :—-)
Lmao judging by Bin’s blush he truly did wow thanks Eunwoo way to go
“I can teach you if you’d like” and now both Bin and Eunwoo are flushed red and shyly avoiding each other’s gaze
