From Emergency Couple to Ex Girlfriends Club to Princess Hours and My Wife is Having an Affair this Week, no two of her roles have every felt the same. Sometimes quirky, sometimes untouchable, she is always engaging on screen. While not all her shows have been my personal favorites, I still enjoyed watching her subvert expectations. With an even more prolific array of movie roles plus her versatility on Running Man, she moves from embodying model standards to every-day working life with ease that the industry finds hard to label.
Day 5 of @journaling-junkie ’s May Journal Challenge!
Question: what colour reminds you of May and why?
A nice light green reminds me of May. In my second grade classroom, the teacher had themed cut-out magnets of each month. May had light green and blossoming flowers in a field of grass.
i assume you were talking about yj!artemis and not her original comic iteration so here she is!! she is so good and ahhh… s2 always kills me ;n; and thank you so much for the compliment!! ;u;♥
and that’s officially the last request!! thanks so much again to everyone who sent one in! i had a lot of fun!! i usually post more doodles and wips and stuff onto twitter before tumblr so if you wanna see more of that kinda stuff +rantings (lots of rantings) then i’m more active over there. :)
Happy b-day to my favorite lil skeleton!♥️
I’m really happy with this!
Thank you comyet for this lovely lil skel.
Aww! What a cute half doodlesphere/half anti void satanic rock place thing with Ink on it! <3 :D I can even spot names and I see that little drawing with Error, so much detail! It’s awesome!! Thank you so much!!
I just saw what you wrote about the kitchen scene & I loved it! What do you think about the reunion scene in the cafeteria? Even specifically mentions Kardemomme. Like he wants to go back to when times were simple, before Isak said he didn't want to be around mentally ill people. It's not until after this scene that Even tries to reach out to Isak, by leaving him the picture in his jacket.
That meta is a bit old! It’s just resurfacing ‘cause I harassed @softnorwegians and pushed them towards my meta tag (#monstrueuse-meta), haha.
The cafeteria scene is a good one. If we see meals as intimacy, then the cafeteria scene is another reflection of Isak and Even’s relationship at the moment. Isak is having a lonely cheese toastie on a sad paper plate, the thing looking very little like the few (albeit horrible in taste) he had so much fun making with Even. Isak is feeling lonely and we see it reflected in every direction choice: from his crossing a schoolyard peppered with small groups of friends (none of which he belongs to; a seemingly infinite and empty distance to close between him and the school’s doors) to him getting lunch alone, another huge physical gap in the queue between him and the boy he first mistakes for Even.
We already see him so lonely when he bumps into Even. Isak, who used to connect with this boy so much, now is lonely even in his presence. We all feel that, us the viewers as well as Isak and Even. They’re uncomfortable even if they try really hard not to be. The divide between them is emphasised by the toastie: Isak is holding a meal, Even isn’t.
on a side-note, talking about direction:
this is a cheese toastie you want to eat
Even tries to restore some of that intimacy, or at least test the waters, and he does it by talking about food: the food they used to share with joy, an in-joke even (kardemomme!), now only in Isak’s hands. It doesn’t work, of course. It feels stilted and fake. Isak really tries to make it work too, but he can’t. Intimacy is not something you can get whenever you please regardless of circumstances.
The intimacy is lost. Isak leaves with his lunch that we don’t see him eating.
So I ended up writing a whole thing, I hadn’t planned that haha. I hope you like it. I might have to write a whole thing with @softnorwegians now about food and sleep in SKAM sesong 3!
can i just take a quick moment to send some praise to all the fanfic writers and artists who are doing lefou justice?
there was so much flarking discourse over his character when it was announced, and now i’m seeing so much positivity and good being done in the wake of the film.
we all love this sweet boy here. we express it in various ways and good golly gosh are some of you so creative! i’m honestly in awe of the artistic talents of all of you! here i am, some humble roleplayer who tries his hardest to convey a character, while you phenomenal fic writers are playing out several at once!
and the art. jfc the ART that you folks are pouring out. my queue is FLOODED with it and i cannot get enough. i’m so happy to see all these cute images, the ships, the CRACK. it’s wonderful.
there are also the drabble writers, roleplayers and just– normal everyday people tossing headcanons out. you’re all so inspiring to a writer such as myself and i love reading what you put out there!
so lemme just throw ALL THE LOVE I CAN at you all, you fantastic fou fighters.
Hi Sam. Please forgive the presumption but I wanted to share a book with you since you are interested in art theft by the Nazis in WWII. It's called "The Book Thieves: Nazi Looting of Europe's Libraries and the Race to Return a Literary Inheritance". I think the subtitle tells you about the premise. (part 1)
I wanted to share for three reasons: One, the book talks about a searchable database for the families of identified books. I thought maybe you could share with your followers in case any Jewish (or other targeted group) wanted to search to see if they could find family books. Two, I didn’t know about the book theft and I’m fairly historically aware! So, maybe others are interested. Three, the parallels between 1930s Nazi Germany and present day US and Europe.
Thank you! That is well within my wheelhouse and I have to admit, I don’t think I’ve heard much about the book looting of WWII – the art and the religious looting tends to take center stage. I’ll add it to my queue, much obliged! Queue’s getting kind of long so it may be a while, but I appreciate the suggestion!
