so is bogie

It’s so crazy when you’re casually disassociating and you walk into a shop where the door has a censor. Like you walk through and it will ding a bell or make a chime and you realise you’re an actual person, you actually exist and cause things to happen. Then the shop keeper is looking at you waiting for the perfect time to ask if you need help, the worst kind of social interaction. I just really don’t like those bells.

Around premiere time for HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE (’53), Lauren Bacall got an invitation to place her hand and footprints outside Grauman’s Chinese Theater. “I said to Bogie [Humphrey Bogart] that it seemed to me anyone with a picture opening could be represented there, standards had been so lowered. Bogie, loving a chance to puncture Hollywood’s ego, said, ‘Why don’t you refuse?'”

[Hollywood columnist] Joe Hyams printed Bacall’s refusal to accept the tribute in the Tribune. It read, “'Before I came to Hollywood, Grauman’s Chinese was something very special to me - it meant not only achievement - it was the Hall of Fame of the motion picture industry and the people in it were unforgettables and irreplaceables. I don’t think of myself as either - I feel that my career is undergoing a change and I want to feel I’ve earned my place with the best my business has produced.'”

More than 20 years passed, and Bacall did not earn another invitation to place her hand and footprints outside the theater. She wrote about this with some regret in her 1979 memoir By Myself: "A tourist or aspiring actor going to Grauman’s Chinese to see the legendary stars’ footprints will not see mine - or miss them.”

“Aw, c’mon Nick, look! They have your eyes!”

“Ellie, please.”

I borrowed some of @bigwinged‘s gentoo designs for this one !

I've always been a fan of Reylo since I first saw the movie. Just joined the tumblr community for it, but I was wondering if you could recommend any looooong Reylo fanfiction (that's all cute and fluffy if possible) that's not otherwise listed on your fanfic recommendations. I've read through nearly everything in the recommendations 😅

Hey there and welcome to the tumblr reylo community :D I am so sorry for my very late reply! xx

Hmmm I think I’ve recommended practically all the long reylo fanfics there are in my rec lists XD Here’s a few beloved fanfics in the fandom that I don’t think I’ve recommended yet as I’ve only recently had the pleasure of stumbling upon them :3 They’re not all fluffy, but well worth the read! xx

“I don’t like your manners,” she sniffed.

“And I’m not crazy about yours,” he retorted.

(So they were apparently Bogie and Bacall now, and maybe she could blame the alcohol in the morning, like all the good girls did.)

The Seventh Bride

By: destinyofamerath


Through a strange twist of fate, Rey suddenly finds herself married to the Marquess of the Reach, a mysterious man who she has never seen and whose name she has never learned. All she knows is this: the Marquess has been married six times before, and each time, the dragon Kylo Ren has devoured his wife within a year of their marriage.

Medieval AU based off of “Psyche and Eros” and “East of the Sun and West of the Moon” with a healthy dose of “Beauty and the Beast” thrown in for good measure.

There are millions of truths and laws in the galaxy. But across the stars, there is one truth that cannot be denied: Beware the Skywalkers - they rule the galaxy in fire and blood.

He stands over Snoke’s dead body, toeing it with his boot.

“You never should have stood between us.”

It has been nine months since Starkiller and Kylo Ren has become something more. The light still pulls at him from time to time but after the price he has paid, he has been relentless in his pursuit of the dark. And then when Snoke had dared stand in his way, tried to take Rey from him … new power had been born that day. Black and deep. The endless abyss that is Kylo Ren in love.

It’s Better If We Just Pretend

By: Ellensama


Rey has gone undercover on the new Star Killer base, Kylo Ren is pretending to be a man named Matt and has been assigned to be her new work partner. She knew this mission would be hard but dealing with Kylo, who seems set on just being angry, and completely uneducated in how to fix anything, might be just too extreme to pull off. Keeping him from finding out who she really is, just add’s to the pile of trouble fate seems set on dealing. If she could maybe figure out why he’s there, and why he’s pretending as well to be someone else, maybe Rey could figure a way out of this mess. Alive.

(Crack fic with an actual serious plot.)

The new barista at Jakku Java is going to give Ben Solo a god damn heart attack.

Never Tell Me The Odds

By: AquaWolfGirl


He was just the supply runner and information gatherer, really. He didn’t mean to get swept up in this Force mumbo-jumbo. Then again, his father hadn’t meant to either, and look where that got him.
An AU where Ben’s not Force sensitive, and instead has followed in his father’s footsteps to become a smuggler and gatherer for the Resistance.

My favourites, with their kiddlywinks. 

“When he saw me at the beginning of the day, and when he called me on the telephone, his first words were always ‘Hello, Baby’…It was all so romantic. And I wanted to give Bogie so much that he hadn’t had — all the love that had been stored inside of me all my life…”
