6 scenes of 18 Chapters of Yajuu Monogatari side story, based on @nawtsoo’s beautiful fic series that has been ruining my life. Fic series link (it’s so good, I cried every time I read it TT_TT Thank you so much for the beautiful fic, Natsu!)
Yamazaki Kento and Hirose Alice confirmed for the live adaptation of Hyouka. To play the roles of Oreki Houtarou and Chitanda Eru.
“Energy-conservative high school student Houtarou Oreki ends up with more than he bargained for when he signs up for the Classics Club at his sister’s behest—especially when he realizes how deep-rooted the club’s history really is. Begrudgingly, Oreki is dragged into an investigation concerning the 45-year-old mystery that surrounds the club room.
Accompanied by his fellow club members, the knowledgeable Satoshi Fukube, the stern but benign Mayaka Ibara, and the ever-curious Eru Chitanda, Oreki must combat deadlines and lack of information with resourcefulness and hidden talent, in order to not only find the truth buried beneath the dust of works created years before them, but of other small side cases as well.
Based on the award-winning Koten-bu light novel series, Hyouka shows that normal life can be full of small mysteries, be it family history, a student film, or even the withered flowers that make up a ghost story.”
I would TOTALLY watch the background characters in a romcom movie!
Here’s how this works in my head:
We open on an Obvious Romcom Premise. A bunch of women having a post-work drink, probably celebrating one member of the group being engaged. The Obvious Romcom Heroine is, say, discussing the massive crush she has on … some kind of local celebrity. The weather man from channel 7, let’s say. And saying other Romcom Bait things like “maybe I should just give up on men” or “I’ve been chatting with this new guy on a dating site, he’s pretty cagey but I think he’s maybe worth a date,” yeah, we’ll go with that one.
Her friends, sensibly, are going “honey, guys who are cagey are probably not a great plan, get a non-dick-pic picture out of him please,” before one of them realizes and unwisely points out that the weather man is *gasp* in the bar as well!
Obvious Romcom Heroine goes to, obviously, have a meet cute with the weatherman and embarrass herself terribly … but the camera stays on her friend group and specifically the one who pointed out the weather man, who is like “I immediately regret this, I take back everything I just said about the online dating dude.”
The rest of the friend group mercilessly nominates her to rescue Obvious Romcom Heroine from whatever situation she’s managed to get herself into, and she has A Moment with the friend the weather man came into the bar with but it gets interrupted by The Romcom and they almost immediately part.
And then comes a romcom that happens around the Traditional Romcom Beats! Obvious Romcom Heroine attempts to track down Weather Man, and her friend ends up apologizing to Weather Man’s friend about the stalking and they get coffee before having to drag their respective friends apart. When the Big Misunderstanding comes, our heroine and the weather man’s friend have to grapple with whether they want to be loyal to friends or test out the romance they’re falling into.
Basically, an hour and a half of acknowledgment that Romcom Heroines (and, indeed, Romcom Heroes) would be that disaster friend that people are fond of and entirely bemused by, with a sweet romance in the foreground where most of the ridiculous drama happens because of leak-over from what would be the main plot in another movie.
Spent the last part of my evening setting up my planner for next week. My overall theme is cute green things. (The left side is more succulent based, the right side is more foresty)
I know my planner doesn’t look straight out of studyblr. That’s because it isn’t. My planner serves as a tool to keep myself motivated, and I like to decorate it so that I have some positive feelings towards doing my work and for a little creative outlet.
Use your planner or bullet journal how you want, don’t critique yourself for falling short of “perfection”
Warnings: Possible abuse, starvation, loss of memory due to traumatic events, fluff (for later)
Steve grunted as he jumped over the high fence and landed silently on the base side. Infiltrating a HYDRA base was mostly never dull, but this one seemed completely abandoned. He carefully made his way towards the main hanger doors.
“See anything, Cap?” Nat asked in his ear.
“Nothing yet. No guards, no alarms, no sign of anyone really.” Steve responded.
“Well, keep looking, we need those files and this is the last known location.”
“Yep, will do.” Steve carefully entered the building and began making his way to the file room they had already located on the leaked base plans. Turning down corridor after corridor, he found a completely empty file room. Drawers were pulled out and through haphazardly around the room, not a single paper to be found.
“Dead end, Nat. Everyone is gone already.”
“Well damn. Head on back then, I’m going to prep the jet. Sam’s waiting for us at the compound, said something about a bar where he found this girl.”
Steve laughed, “He’s always talking about a bar where he found a girl. I’m going to take another quick look around. I’ll be back in 10 minutes.”
“Copy that, Cap.”
Steve took his time walking back through the base, still cautious in case someone was left. He made it all the way back to the large hanger when he started to feel like someone was watching him. He turned and saw no one but couldn’t shake the uneasy feeling that he wasn’t alone.
