so she wrote this

I have dancing in my background. I was primarily a dancer when I was younger. I’ve been dancing since I was four, so that’s why Emily wrote it in because she knew that I could do it. She found out about my special skills and then there was no going back. So I didn’t actually have any lessons for the cheerleading. I just sort of learned it off a video and turned up and hoped for the best. Hoped I wasn’t gonna get fired. So that was good. Other than that, we had shooting lessons before the first season, but this year it was just expected that we remembered how we did it and that there weren’t gonna be any crazy mistakes and luckily there weren’t.

I’m sure as I rewatch I’m going to notice a lot more stuff but something that really stood out to me was how Rapunzel reacts to stressful situations. I don’t know if it’s intentional or not, but she does the same things that I’ve experienced in real-life so it popped out to me quickly, and intentional or not, I really like it (and will 100% self-indulgently use it as part of my headcanons/characterization for Rapunzel). There are already amazing posts on Gothel being emotionally abusive towards Rapunzel, and what I like about this series is that we get to see Rapunzel coping and adjusting after being away from Gothel, and how this specifically shows up with stressful situations. 

She’s very enclosed in on herself, and will often slightly curl up and try to turn away from the object that’s causing her stress (she’s turned away from the castle, turning only to look at Eugene, and an exception is when she’s on the bed, curled away from Cassandra, who’s not her true stressor, etc). But, overall she tries to shield herself - she literally hugs her arms around her body in the beginning, and when she speaks about not wanting to marry Eugene, she puts her hands over herself. 

I don’t remember it happening often enough so it could be a one-time thing, but I did notice that when her hair grows back, she seems to pull on it more often, which reminds me of her literally covering herself in her hair in the original movie when Gothel was singing about danger. She also tends to avert her eyes from the stressor and - what I assume is lip biting. Overall, she tries to make herself as small as possible, and look away from what’s giving her anxiety.

based on a real show my friend attended...

How did Shitty get himself into this situation? Who knows, Lardo probably had something to do with it. Either way, he has found himself at the end of a performance art course with a one man show to put on and no idea what to do (and only the vaguest idea of how he got there in the first place). 

Did he prepare beforehand? Take any of the continuous warnings about not leaving it to the last minute? Absolutely not, brah.

Cut to the performance, after a long week of freak out sessions with Lardo and a lot of crying and begging to Bitty. Surprisingly, the turn out is impressive, a full house. Lights up on Shitty, stark naked, sitting on a chair, slowly eating a grilled cheese sandwich - Bitty made it, so his rapturous expression and the single tear flowing down his face are only natural.

The critics all agree that it was the most moving moment of the otherwise slightly bemusing piece. How does a grilled cheese become a discussion of gender inequality in the US legal system, you may ask? Go along to the show and I’m sure Mr. Knight will let you know in great detail. More importantly, why is he naked? Why does his hair make me feel this way? Questions that may never have answers. 

Overall, a truly wonderful example of avant garde theatre at its finest. A roaring success, defying all expectations.

so I said something about mezato and takenaka having the eccentric shounen detective vibe and guess what

yep its an AU

in which mezato is an independent reporter who’s famous for not knowing what fear or common sense is when it comes to investigation, and takenaka is a telepath trying to stay alive

pointers under the cut

carolina

so far away but she says i remind her of home
feeling oh so far from home

she never saw herself as a west coaster
moved out the way cause her grandma told her towns
better swim before you drown

she’s a good girl
she’s such a good girl
she’s a good girl
she feels so good

she’s got a book for every situation
gets into parties without invitations
how could you ever turn her down

there’s not a drink that i think would sink her
how would i tell her that she’s all i think about
but i guess she just found out

she’s a good girl
she’s such a good girl
she’s a good girl
she feels so good

i met her once and wrote a song about her
i wanna scream yeah 
i wanna shout it out 
and i hope she hears me now

[lalalalalalala break]

she’s a good girl
she’s such a good girl
she’s a good girl
she feels so good (x3)
you make me feel so good
she’s a good girl

Unpopular opinion: I think people choose to hate noorhelm and call it toxic because their season was the most popular and Thomas left the show. Most people on Tumblr like season 3 the best and can’t comprehend why anyone would like noorhelm over Evak. In Norway, season 2 was the most popular. People loved Noorhelm, hell I love Noorhelm. I’ve seen so many people call it toxic with zero explanation. William never pressured Noora into sex, never hit her, never degraded her, constantly showered her with love, invited her friends places so she didn’t feel uncomfortable even though Vilde made him uncomfortable, wrote her paper, never gave up on her, and tried to protect her. You can be mad at Thomas for leaving, but you can’t invent an abusive relationship out of something that wasn’t abusive. The first date may have been to stop him from pretending to like Vilde, but when Noora said she didn’t want to be there he offered to take her home. He was never forceful or disrespectful. Let’s not make up a storyline out of anger. Noorhelm is a cute relationship and William isn’t a bad guy.

#kdramawomensweek: day 2 // rent’s due (a character whose journey through adulthood you identify with…someone who you feel reflects to some degree the struggle of either blazing through life or falling and getting back up again)

i cant believe ppl were headcanoning Lena as this cold ruthless businesswoman when as early as in 2x03 she was literally just curled up on her couch by some gay-ass flowers waiting for her crush so that she could compliment her on the article she wrote and thank her for not roasting her and fidgeting and lowkey blushing while doing so

WOMAN WRITES A BOOK OF LOVE POEMS
and it’s old news, typical feminine nonsense, pseudo-emotional bullshit. Glib, trite, tired and hackneyed. I mean did you see the way she just went on and on about whatever she went on and on about? Probably a good read if you’re a teenage girl or into romance novels. Not to say her work doesn’t have merit, it’s just not for everyone. Maybe if she broadened her horizons a little and picked another topic. So she sat and she waited for love and she wrote about it when it came and when it didn’t. So she compared collarbones to clover fields and called herself lucky. It’s not exactly groundbreaking. 

MAN WRITES A BOOK OF LOVE POEMS
and it’s vulnerability at its finest, timeless and honest, something that really hits home. A running faucet of intimacy. A masterpiece of human sensitivity. Inspirational and intensely relatable, really a must-read for anyone with a heart. Such a traditional topic too. Amazing how he captured it with such a fresh voice. Did you see the page where he wrote, "girl, you’re not lucky, I am lucky because I found you"? Look, I won’t say he went out and saved poetry all on his own, but god. He may as well have.

hey yall

lucretias one job was to write. she was there to record their journey. she wrote down everything. with two hands in two note books. she wrote SO MUCH. she spent so much time detailing specific plant life and every detail she could get down in those journals
and then
then she fed all of her hard work to the voidfish
gone
erased
she wrote for a century and then essentially dropped it into a paper shreader and burned the scraps
