so heres a few of my favorite scenes

-The Most Interesting Stories Aren’t Always Action-

Here​ ​is​ ​a​ ​list​ ​of​ ​a​ ​few​ ​of​ ​my​ ​favorite​ ​engaging​ ​stories​ ​with​ ​a​ ​little​ ​less​ ​action.


Shouwa​ ​Genroku​ ​Rakugo​ ​Shinju​​ ​​-Drama- Shouwa​ ​Genroku​ ​Rakugo​ ​Shinju​ ​keeps​ ​me​ ​so​ ​invested​ ​in​ ​the​ ​story​ ​at​ ​all​ ​time,​ ​with​ ​loveable characters,​ ​just​ ​enough​ ​drama,​ ​great​ ​music,​ ​and​ ​well​ ​directed​ ​scenes,​ ​it​ ​proves​ ​it​ ​doesn’t​ ​take an​ ​action​ ​packed​ ​fight​ ​to​ ​make​ ​your​ ​heart​ ​race.


Sakamichi No Apollon -Drama-
Maybe my opinion is slightly biased because of my love for jazz, but the way sakamichi no apollon explores romance, music, and the everyday drama and lives of these characters, had me hooked from episode one.


Beast Player Erin -Fantasy-
Now technically there is a bit of action in this series. BUT I would argue that the majority of the series is a coming of age/political story, with love both familial and romantic, and a touching story about the relationship between a girl and a magical beast, i’d say it’s worth a watch.


Mushi-shi -Fantasy-
Mushi-shi is a great story for those who enjoy the feeling of exploring in a world of fantasy. As it follows a man wandering the world following rumors of possible mushi, and helping others, you’ll find yourself sucked deep into a well built fantasy world with background music that you only WISH you had IRL.


Ristorante Paradiso -Romance-
This one is a little different from most others on this list, the story revolves around a woman off to find her mother and the man she left to marry. She finds herself uprooting into a new life working in the strange restaurant her mother and secret stepfather run, making friends, and falling in love, all the while no one knows she’s even her daughter.


House Of Five Leaves -historical drama-
This show has great characters and unique art and atmosphere that set it apart from other shows instantly. And if you’ve ever wondered “what would a show about samurai be like without all the actiony fights all the time?” this show answers that question.


Sora No Woto -Military-
Though it’s a military show, it rarely ever has all that much action. The show IMO focuses a lot on themes of hope in times of war, showing how it affects the people involved. It also focuses a lot on characters overcoming their problems and building relationships with one another in a kind of bittersweet way.


Hozuki no reitetsu -Comedy-
It felt to me like a good idea to throw in a nice comedy at the end of a list with so many bittersweet titles. Hoozuki focuses on “life” and Business in hell, with a dark and sometimes dry adult sense of humor, in a strange slice of life setting i found this show to be an enjoyable and a relaxing watch.

Author Rec - alisvolatpropiis/ @deleted-scenes

The hardest part of these recs is picking just a few fics because fanfic authors are so fucking talented.  Tay is one of my all time favorite Sterek writers and I blame her for dragging me into this fandom.  Hot Nerd Alert was one of the first series of fics I read in the Sterek fandom and I haven’t looked back since. 

So here are a few of my favorite things that she’s written, but I would advise reading everything she’s written, you won’t regret it. 

Always Follow a Hippie to a Second Location 
Words: 3,956
Mature

It’s hard to tell just how long his hair is but it’s night-black and shiny and soft-looking, little strands falling loose from the messy knot high on his head that Stiles feels strangely compelled to put his hands on, to grip tight, which is ridiculous. He’s never been into hippie guys or guys with long hair, but he’s thinking now he might need to reassess that life choice because damn, how much fun would it be to fuck that ass while tangling his hands in that hair like reins, pulling his head back and leaning forward to get closer to his moans….

Kiss Me Under the Light of a Thousand Stars
Words: 5,631
Not Rated

“It was a true love spell,” he admits quietly. “It was supposed to help me find my true love. And apparently I suck at magic as much as I suck at dating because I screwed this up too.”

In which Stiles’ Valentine’s Day love spell goes very wrong.

And Also, I Love You
Words: 7,155
Explicit

Derek didn’t look at all like Stiles expected. After all, he deliberately chose a school where being a nerd was cool, so he certainly wasn’t expecting his hotter-than-a-thousand-stars roomie to be an actual cool person. Derek has muscles, like everywhere, which he has a tendency to display in skin-tight, sleeveless t-shirts for bands Stiles has never heard of; his jeans are always tight and ripped too, and he has an impressive five-o’clock shadow, the tips of his jet-black hair dyed purple. And his eyes. Stiles is pretty sure he’s only seen eyes like that in comics, or on a movie screen, or in his freakin dreams. They’re somehow simultaneously all of the colors and none of them, transcending something so pedestrian and insignificant as words to encapsulate their beauty. Stiles would come to learn that he’s also wickedly smart, and he plays the guitar and speaks multiple languages, and his sunshine smile is even more alarming that his resting murder face

Soulseeker

Sighing, Stiles reaches for Derek’s big hands, cradled in his broad lap, his skin lighting up even more at Derek’s touch. He takes a deep breath and closes his eyes, preparing himself to look for Derek’s soulmate.Whoever you are, he thinks, you better be worth him.

A Love Like Religion
Words: 10,696
Explicit
“Derek, my man, you missed an epic party on Saturday. Seriously, dude, I know morning Mass is like, your thing, but come on. You’re missing on out so much life has to offer, bro.”

Big hands land on shoulders with a thump and a squeeze while Derek stands at his locker, loading his gigantic calculus book into his backpack. He gives his best friend a practiced sidelong glare, which of course just encourages him. “You’ll change your mind when I tell you who sucked me off in Lydia Martin’s bedroom,” Stiles snickers into his ear. 

Despite himself, Derek is curious. He tries to hide it by focusing on his books, but he knows the heat in his cheeks betrays him. “Who,” he asks, giving in, knowing he will eventually.

Constantly on the Cusp
Words: 40,884

Explicit
Stiles is gay, out and proud, and a Beacon Hills deputy. Derek is a firefighter and war veteran who thinks he’s straight; or, Derek and Stiles have lots of semi-public hatesex on the road to Love.

If I Played You My Favorite Song

In which acoustic musician Derek Hale seduces Stiles with a modern R&B classic.

Deleted Scenes

Mature

A group of vignettes of my headcanons inspired by various Sterek scenes.

Queer Your Coffee
Words: 7,875
Explicit

Derek’s just over the city line when he sees a sign for an independent drive-thru place, Full Spectrum Brew. There are three cars in line when he turns in, which annoys him but gives him hope. Not that he really trusts the people of Beacon Hills to have much taste when it comes to coffee (god, he is a snob), but the shop’s popularity does seem to bode well. The line of cars moves way more slowly than he’d like, each customer in front of him seeming to take way too long to order, and then lingering when they get their coffee. He’s irritable from lack of sleep and an even more detrimental lack of caffeine, anxious to get out of the car. Finally it’s his turn and he slowly rolls up to the window, turning the radio down.

For a second, he thinks he must have fallen asleep while he was waiting, because what he sees when he looks in the window surely must be a dream.

Stunning brown eyes like glowing honey and sweet little nose, slightly upturned; a shapely pink mouth, bottom-lip pierced by a thin black hoop that he’s worrying with the tip of his tongue as he smiles a gorgeous hello.

He’s the most beautiful man Derek’s ever seen.

And he’s shirtless.

Hot Nerd Alert
Words: 25,115
Explicit 

Derek can’t believe he’s actually doing this: taking a selfie snap of the guy he’s been crushing on for weeks to prove to Danny that one, yes, he really does exist, and two, he really is that hot and thus he is totally justified in being too scared to make a move.

Or you know, even talk to the guy outside of the class they share.

In his defense, this isn’t just any guy. This THE guy. Hot Nerd. The utterly adorable but still somehow insanely sexy freshman in his twentieth century American Lit class who he’s been lusting over since the first day of the semester. If there were ever a time for him to be that person who tries to be subtle while taking snaps of other people, this is it.

Allison Mack and director Michael Rosenbaum on the set of the episode Freak.  Signed by both Allison Mack and Michael Rosenbaum.

This is probably my all time favorite Smallville behind the scenes picture.  I love it so much.  It shows a director helping an actor create a performance.  It shows two coworkers who trust each other so much that one of them will tell a personal story so that the other can access a vulnerable emotion.  I could go on for days about how much I love this photo.

I had this picture signed at Chicago Wizard World 2013.  Michael told me what was going on in it.  He has recounted the story a few times.  Here are two versions with slightly different details

Version 1
I loved [directing Allison]. That was my favorite part, that she had to be so emotional. She had to trust me. I said to her, I said: “Listen to me. You are going to look great if you listen to me!” (laughs) That’s how much confidence I had “if you just trust me and don’t worry about anything else, you’re going to be great in this episode” and she nodded and said “okay.” And there was a scene where she had to cry and I go “I want you to tear up”, towards the end of the episode and she…the cameras are rolling and she says “Michael, can you come here for a second?” I said “Sure.” She says “Can you tell me that story about your grandma again?” I said “sure.” And I started to tell her a story about my grandmother and how much I loved her and I saw these tears start to well and I said “okay, let’s roll, let’s roll.” And she was ready and it was really emotional, really good. She channeled that.

Version 2
I remember at the end of the episode, Allison had to cry again. She comes up to me - the camera’s rolling - and she goes “Michael, could you please tell me that story about your grandmother again?” My grandmother passed away, and I started to tell [Allison] this story about my grandma and how she would make me cheese sandwiches at two in the morning and all of a sudden these big tears fill up in her eyes.


Today, February 15, 2017, marks the ten year anniversary of the broadcast of Freak

Ok first off I want to say your hockey fic on ao3 is one of my favorite fics ever thank you for writing that. Also that big thing on the recent episode and their first times was so well written and I loved it. What do you think will happen in the next few episodes with malec? Also do you think we'll get more intimate scenes? Just curious on your opinion

thank you for the itsb love and for that post :) i have no fucking clue what will happen with malec lol. i’m AWFUL at theories. we know from the promo that they fight (which i’m here for, all relationships hit rough spots. if it was all smooth-sailing for malec i’d wonder if they were really invested in this), and from bts footage that they possibly make up in the same episode (i’ll leave out the potential spoiler for those who don’t want it).

and yeah, i absolutely think we’ll get more intimate scenes. it’s just the beginning of their story ♡ xx

This will always be one of my favorite scenes, when you look at their interaction, at the way they speak with each other, and make jokes, and Chat is like “ok stop milady, you’re really not that funny”… and i’m here dying because they look so comfortable, and you’ve got to listen to Mari’s laugh in this part, she laughs with such genuineness, and it’s not the first time, Chat is one of the few people who can make her laugh like she is enjoying the moment, and is like she doesn’t even realize how natural it has become, this relationship, i swear sometimes they even act like a married couple, and they have no idea.

As requested, here’s a totally voluntary Westallen Twitter event you can participate in next week!

Let’s have a Westallen positivity week, where we celebrate the things we love about our couple and tag the writers, actors or crew members responsible for creating those moments so they know we appreciate the work they’ve done! Remember it’s not a trend, you can just casually tweet a few times each day in accordance with the theme!

Tag your tweets with #WAPositivity so others can find you and reply or retweet, and be sure to include “Westallen” in your tweets whenever possible. Here’s the list of writers if you need a refresher! I’m happy to do one for directors if anyone needs it.

anonymous asked:

Ohhhh damn!!!! F!ck me up with your L&O:SVU character, I'm in love with her!! And was wondering could you give us some head cannons about her (if you have any). Just random ones bc I need a new Barba/OC in my lifee and can't wait till you post it!!

asdfghjkl;’ omg so here are just a few random things I have so far…

Sophia first caught Benson’s attention when she kept popping up at crime scenes. As a rookie officer she appeared to take great notes in detail and comforted victims. When it came time for her promotion, Cragen and SVU snatched her up ffirst thing. She’s been with them ever since.

Sophia’s freckles are one of Rafael’s favorite things about her, but she secretly hates them. They make her look younger than she is and she spent years being told she looked like a little kid during her teens. Every time Rafael catches her making faces in the mirror at her freckles he presses little kisses on her cheeks and nose, loving each and ever splattered speckle.

Her first language is French, and often reverts back to it when needing a ‘safeplace’ to let out her frustrations and or annoyance. If you hear her speaking angrily in french, its best to give her some distance.

Her brother is a Canadian mountie who she often calls for favors when it comes to hunting down info on victims, perps, or case info.

Sophia has a more casual style than some of her counterparts, but one thing that always remains the same are her boots. Her little asskickers as they’re often called. While they usually only have a little heel, they’re enough to add to her already impressive height, giving her a bit more of an intimating presence when she stands straight with her arms crossed. She has a total of twenty pairs of various style heights and colors, her dirty and sometimes expensive little secret.

Speaking of ties, Sophia has a bit of a fetish when it comes to Rafael, loving the different colors and patterns. She often greets him with a simple, “nice tie” which at times can sound sardonic but is nothing but truth. Eventually Barba comes to lean that when she doesn’t make a mention she’s either side tracked or upset. After they begin dating Sophia begins buying him gag-gift ties, little pumpkins or hearts for holidays that he sometimes will wear (if he doesn’t have court) just to see her face light up in that stupid grin.

Sophia is a die hard, and unapologetic, hockey fan. She may say the Rangers are her team but in her heart a part of her will always belong to the Montreal Canadiens. </3

While she might be the most health conscious eater of the group, Sophia and Captain Cragen both have a horrible sweet tooth, each having a secret stash of candy in their office/drawers. For Cragen it’s twizzlers, which she often leaves on his desk when he returns from absence as shown when he comes back after being framed for murder. Though it’s never said aloud he knows they come from her. Sophia herself is more of a sour candy and lollipop kinda girl, often seen with a sweet in her mouth when she’s stuck doing paperwork.

Sophia can’t cook for shit, but Rafael loves to, and jumps at any chance to show his skills and impress her (though it doesn’t take much.).

Unlike her sisters, Sophia has darker and curlier hair, taking after their father. Wild they are often unmanageable, Rafael rather likes the half waves and ringlets that seem to form. Sometimes he becomes distracted when she puts her hair up because there always seem to be a curl of two that escapes, begging him to tuck it back behind her ear or tuck it back into her mess of inky curls.

Sorry thats about it off the top of my head! So glad you like her and I’m excited to post it too!. Thanks, love! <3

Here it is! Lucina’s Judgement! This was always my favorite scene in Fire Emblem Awakening, and I hope I managed to do it justice. Most of the dialogue is unaltered from the game, with the exception of Angie’s. I figured Angie seems less close with Chrom vs. the in game Robin, so I made him less of a focus. While there’s a few things I would have liked to have done differently, I’m pretty proud of how this came out so I hope you guys enjoy it! Tagged for in game spoilers.

Just Sleep here with Me

Aaand another wonderful fan-lineart I got from @secretsivekept that I colored.
It’s one of my favorite scenes so far, where Bog and Marianne are stargazing and he sings a lullaby for her. You can read it here.

It was time again, I changed a few colors in the shading of Bog, don’t know if it is visible. xD And I uploaded both the version with light/shadow and text and also the blank one, just because so many details get lost with the effects.

Mahhh, I really love this picture so damn much. @secretsivekept really managed to catch that moment perfectly in a picture, so many thanks again to you my friend. <3

CS Fan Art Rec

I’ve been loving all the fan fic rec lists, so I thought I’d do a list for my favorite artists. Please add your favorites to this if I’ve missed some (or if you want to add your work).

Svenjaliv (also on Tumblr as @winter-by-the-sea​)

Most of you know her work, which is always so beautiful. She captures the expressions of characters and the mood of a scene so wonderfully.

Scribblecat ( @scribblecat27 )

Another amazing artist. I particularly love her charcoal drawings and watercolors, but really everything she does is wonderful. Here is my favorite:

Waiting for Autumn ( @waiting-for-autumn )

I love the texture in her work, and she also has drawings with a great illustrative/comic style… which impresses me because I can’t do it. :-)

Actual Swan Princess ( @actualswanprincess )

I love the drawing below, which creates a dramatic image with very few lines (that’s difficult to do!). She also has some lovely sketches.

Fairy Tales and Time Travel ( @fairytalesandtimetravel )

Charming illustrative style. I love the colors and texture in this one:

Here are some other wonderful artists to check out:

@kimidakewooooo

@feeling-quilly

@leila-princess

Here’s some of my stuff, too:

                                                          TOP 19 CLEXA SCENES

I have recently reached 19,000 followers, and since I will never be capable of finishing my legendary icon pack in time for the next 2-3 goals (you have the right to scold me everyday to make me go back to it), I thought I might do some TOP thingy for my followers instead! Since this is a multi-fandom blog, it’s kind of impossible to please everyone with one fandom, so I’m going to make different ones (for different shows) for everytime I reach a new goal.

I’ve decided to start with TOP 19 Clexa Scenes (as voted by my followers), because I feel like the fandom needs some loving back for loving me and my blog very devotedly in the last few months even when I was a newbie in the Clexa-editing.

So here are the rules:

  • Reblog this post
  • Must be following this jackass
  • Send an ask, mentioning 3 of your favorite Clexa scenes. I will not publish it, I will only mark it and answer to you privately.
  • Only happening if this post reaches 50+ notes.

Thank you for following me and putting up with me. Y’all keep me very motivated to continue with this blog and spoil me way too much. Vote, vote, vote!

Quick StormPilot fic rec

I have another set of fic recs that will come out today or tomorrow, but this fic I just read was so wonderful I figured I’d give a taste of what’s to come.  This fic will be rerecced in my coming up post.

Edit: here’s the link to that new set: http://malihh.tumblr.com/post/136947575904/yet-more-stormpilot-fic-recs

Supernova Tonight

http://archiveofourown.org/works/5596270

This beautifully written long fic (nearly 10K words) is probably one of my favorites right now.  Finn dealing with the effects of growing up a storm trooper, Poe dealing with helping him.  It follows Poe’s perspective throughout this, figuring out how not to speak without thinking so as to help Finn as much as possible, things like that.  There’s so many paragraphs I could pull to quote, but here’s a few that made me fall more in love with this fic towards the beginning of it.

It is rated Explicit, as it does have a few smutty scenes, but if that’s not your thing the story is still worth reading as the vast majority is

“Finn says things, those times when he’s stuck back in the memories that never formed properly, that make Poe want to go out, gear up, get in his X-wing and basically personally kill every First Order bastard and go back again twice over just to be certain.”

“When he’d been young and stupid, he’d bought into the reputation flyers had for love-em-and-leave-‘em, and felt like it was something you had to live by, that it came with the role. His mother had been nothing like that, but since when did kids let parents be their models? He had one night stands round half his squad, and casual arrangements with most of the other half, and then there were all the off-world trips and the bars and the skin-sinks, and it was awesome until the night he was all on his own drinking banthan rum with no one who gave a shit to talk to about his Dad’s passing, and realised it wasn’t….

And now somehow it’s twenty years later, and he’s wound up in the longest relationship of his life – even though it’s barely been half a cycle - with a guy who probably views their interaction as familial, or at least would if he’d not been horribly kidnapped from his actual family and mind-wiped and exploited until any sense of how people might relate normally was stripped from him and…”


As long as I’m sending out a taste, here’s the links to my previous three rec posts:

Sketchbook: Mr. Norrell & Jonathan Strange

I started listening to the audiobook a few weeks ago, HONESTLY not knowing a TV adaptation was about to be released into the world. I still don’t understand how it got past me. Love the book (I read it awhile ago, too) and I’ve wanted to illustrate scenes from it since then. Main characters here; one of my favorite parts is Mr. Norrell’s profession crush on Strange. He is just so lonely for more magicians to talk to. I hear you, Mr. N.

I’ve been asked about a new week for our beloved Captain so here it is, the Killian Jones Appreciation Week special Season 4A

  • day 1: favorite emotion/trait (anger, bravery, etc)
  • day 2favorite happy scene
  • day 3favorite outfit
  • day 4favorite heartbreaking scene
  • day 5: favorite episode
  • day 6: favorite dynamic
  • day 7favorite quote(s)

it will start on Monday, January 5th (but you won’t be given to the mermaids if you have few days late or if you don’t make every category, I promise on my pirate honor). 

the tag will be #kjaw (you have to put it in the 5 first tags if you want your posts to appear in it). also, don’t forget the general tag #hookedit.

you can do gifs/graphics/metas/videos or whatever you want.

don’t forget ; it’s only based on season 4A!

the whole point of this week is to celebrate our favorite swashbuckler with positive vibs and love. enjoy! (and spread the word, mates, ok?)

Yo so here's a few thoughts

I’m going to watch shadowhunters over teen wolf, y'all don’t have to do the same thing but this has been my favorite book series since I was ten years old, I’m not running away from it so fast.

I do however think some of you are losing your shit over nothing. Some stuff can’t be changed, but cgi is still under production and right now people are rushing out scenes from the tv show because of two things.

1. They want something to present to fans at comic con.

2. I’ve seen a lot of people whining about not getting a trailer for the show even though we’re still 4 months out. This includes a very large booktuber who I won’t name for fear of getting attacked who thought we would get a trailer two eps into filming. People are being impatient.

Don’t ditch the show because the first cut of it looks a little weird. It’s a pilot, it’s the first season, and it’s up to us if we want a season two. And consider the fact that you may very well be scaring off new fans from watching it with your pessimism.

A Frank Discussion

I have mixed feelings about Frank. On his own, I like him. He’s definitely someone I would end up hanging out with and I would genuinely enjoy his company - I mean, he’s a historian and I double majored in History as well as English; I’ve always been a history nerd. With regards to his relationship with Claire… I mostly just feel sorry for the guy. 

The rest is under the cut cause Spoilers. 

Inspired by thoughts prompted by this ask
