so these two have a lot of perfect scenes and it killed me not to be able to use them all

2017′s “It” Understands the Key to Good Horror

If you follow me for my reviews, then you know that I tend to specialize in animated films, usually family affairs. It often shocks people, then, that I’m actually a fan of horror too. There is something particularly enthralling about a good horror film. The problem is, it’s hard to find good horror! However, once the teaser dropped for the new It, my fancy was immediately tickled.

I watched the mini-series in junior high, and growing up I realized that it had a lot of problems. For sure, Tim Curry as Pennywise stuck in my memory, but on the whole it fell flat. In an age of remakes that most find unnecessary, It actually needed a remake to help fix the problems it had. Now that director Andy Muschietti has had his turn with the story, let’s see how he did.

Come to the dark side, or not.

Ok, so I’m at a scene and I have my two main characters in adjoining prison cells. He’s been captured because he turned against the dark force and had been secretly helping the light because he fell for the female lead, and she was fighting for the light all along, but the darker side has been trying to coerce her into joining. Could you do some dialogue where she’s ready to give in and he tries to talk her out of it?

Villain x hero prompts, the hero turns into the dark side to be with her!

Anonymous said:
Aaaaaahhhh! Your Villain x Hero prompts give me life!!!!! Could you possibly do some on the villain trying to get the hero to join them? I’m having a bit of writers block. PS! I love your blog!!!! 😍

 1) “You think surrender will save people?” Maybe, given the situation, he should be gentle but he was simply too furious.  After everything, how could she think for even a second that they were the better option? She’d seen what they’d done to him! “It won’t. Trust me, that’s not how these people work. You surrender and they win. Game over. Maybe your friends will still be alive but it will be in misery, or hey, maybe they’ll just kill everyone anyway because it’s not like you’re going to stop them.”

2) “I love her.”
“Clearly to the point of madness. She’s sweet to you, that’s great, good for you. I’m sure you’ll be very happy making love not war when the rest of us rot. Tell me - tell me just one thing-” their best friend’s voice cracked. “What sacrifices is she making for you? What is she doing to prove her love to you or is it just you that’s making the compromises?”
“She’s not the one currently trying to ruin everything. Yeah, so sorry that I did the selfish thing for once to be happy. I thought maybe I’d done enough for the lot of you.”
“The lot of us? I take it back, you two are perfect for each other.”

3) “They want you to fight for them, but they’re scared of what you can do. Terrified of your power just as they’re frightened of mine. Do you really think,” the villain leaned in close. “That when I’m gone they’re not going to turn on you?”

4) “Sometimes,” her voice drifted through the wall, so empty and lost. “I think I’m not as strong as you think I am.”
He swallowed hard.“Please.” He wished he could reach out to touch, to gather her up close through the cold stone walls and make it better because he knew how hard it was to resist them. The only reason he’d been able to do it was because of her. “You don’t have to fight forever, just a little bit longer, yeah? A few seconds, a few minutes, a day. Break it down. You saved me. Now I’m going to save you and get you out of here, okay?”
He had no idea. Still, he injected some confidence into his voice. “You forget, these are my old stomping grounds. I’ve still got some strings to pull here.” And maybe that string would now end up being a hangman’s noose, but if it saved her…well, if it saved her he’d do anything.

5) “Come, now.” The villain held out her hand. Implacable, expectant, calm in her waiting. “Let me make it all better.”
They crossed over and maybe it wasn’t better but falling was a lot like flying when you squinted right.

6) “I could give you the whole speech,” the villain strolled closer. “Threaten to kill your friends, life of luxury, oh no all your friends are really turned against you…blah blah blah.”
The hero watched them warily. 
“I think you’re too strong for that,” the villain said. “Not easily swayed or broken. It’s one of the things I’ve always admired about you. You’d do anything to save them.” The villain sighed. “So I think I’m just going to do this is instead.”
They zapped the memory-wiper against the hero’s skull, shattering all memory of life before, and promptly switched their face to concerned. “Oh thank god, I finally found you…”
Did Dan Stevens Really Sing? What Worried Emma Watson While Waltzing? Beauty and the Beast’s Secrets Revealed!
Ten burning Beauty and the Beast questions asked and answered — with important insider facts about the hit new film

How many people, animals and props were involved in making the opening musical number, “Belle?”

According to Disney, there were more than 150 cast members and extras involved, along with 28 wagons and carts, hundreds of live animals (horses, cows, mules, ducks, geese and hens) and countless props and set decorations. The set itself was also the production’s largest, measuring 28,787 square feet.

Bonus fact: The town is named Villeneuve, a fictional French village that was built on the backlot at Shepperton Studios outside London.  The town’s name is an homage to Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, the author of the original Beauty and the Beast story.

How many horses played Belle and Maurice (Kevin Kline)’s trusty steed, Philippe?


“Belle and Maurice’s horse Philippe was played by three different horses, two of which had to be painted on a daily basis,” says a rep for the studio.

How did they pull off the waltz scene between Belle (Emma Watson) and the Beast?

Carefully! Watson and Stevens first had to learn the choreography, and then Stevens had to master it on stilts. The British star tells PEOPLE practice makes perfect when it came time to learn how to walk and dance in the steel contraptions.

“You’ve just got to get in ’em, start moving around!” Stevens says with a laugh. “Fortunately we had about three months of pre-production for rehearsals, learning the songs, the dances. Initially with the waltz I learned the steps on the ground and graduated to the stilts, which was slightly terrifying for me but probably more for Emma. I think she was very worried that I was going to tread on her toes in steel stilts, which could’ve ruined the movie, but I didn’t, so I’m very proud of that.”

Is that Dan Stevens’ real singing voice?

Yes! And it was a welcome challenge for the actor.

“Singing was a relatively new thing to me,” Stevens, 34, says of re-training his singing voice. “I’d sung at school and when I was younger, but in my 20s I [hadn’t] sung as extensively so reengaging my voice, retraining the voice was a big challenge.”

Did they use Dan Stevens’ actual face for the Beast?

Yes, although the finished product is a computer-animated and significantly hairier version.

Stevens wore a 40-lb. “muscle suit” and performed the role on stilts — first so that the size and movements of the character were captured on set during filming, and then again for the visual-effects teams so that his face was captured and later computer-animated with the Beast’s hair and fangs.

“Every couple of weeks I would go into a special booth and my face would be sprayed with about 10,000 UV dots and I would sit in what I used to call the Tron cage,” Stevens says. “Anything I’d been doing in the previous two weeks in the scenes, whether it was eating, sleeping, roaring, waltzing, I did it again with my face, with Emma [Watson] sitting on the other side of the cage, and we would capture the Beast’s face.”

What’s with Dan Stevens’ hair in that Prince reveal?

It’s a wig. A stringy, scraggly one.

“The hair at the end, was it extensions? I think it was a wig,” Stevens says, trying hard to remember the hair accessory he wore two years ago during filming. “It was quite awhile ago. Yeah, I’m pretty sure that was a wig,” he adds with a smile. “And what a wig!”

Which costume was the most challenging to create?

Belle’s red “montage” outfit, aka the one she wears outdoors for her snowball fight with Beast. Why? Because costume designer Jacqueline Durran used all eco-friendly materials in its design.

“Because Emma is so interested in sustainability and fair trade, eco fabrics and eco fashion, we applied those criteria to making a costume from head to toe,” Durran tells PEOPLE. “That [red] costume was made entirely from sustainable fabrics. We dyed it in vegetable dyes in our workroom, we had shoes made with eco leather, and we did the whole thing from top to bottom to be as thorough as we could. People learned different skills in the work rooms to be able to do it, so the dyers learned to dye with strange vegetable dye. Sometimes it took two weeks to dye something because you’d have to leave it in there for that long to get a rich color. It really was a learning curve for all of us, I’d certainly never done that before.”

How did the filmmakers decide on which songs to feature from the animated film and Broadway musical?

The answer is by hiring and deferring to the animated film’s composer, Alan Menken, who also co-wrote the music for the new film.

“It was challenging,” Menken told EW. “[The] Broadway show had songs that I would have loved to use for the movie, but the form for a film and the form for a Broadway show are different, so the song we wrote for the Broadway show was not going to work. Consequently, we wrote a brand-new song. The challenge is just to maintain the balance of what we originally had for the score and what we had for the show, and at the same time allow this film to have its own character.”

How many new songs are in the film?


Menken and lyricist Tim Rice (The Lion King) wrote three new ballads for the film. They are: “How Does a Moment Last Forever,” performed by Belle and her father (and sung by Celine Dion over the end credits), “Evermore,” which Beast sings for Belle when he releases her (and is sung by Josh Groban over the end credits), and “Days in the Sun,” which is sung by the objects in the castle and Belle when they are going to sleep.

What was left on the cutting room floor?

A lot — including a clever Frozen reference. Please allow LeFou (Josh Gad) and Gaston (Luke Evans) to explain:

“I mean, Gaston dies. Is that a spoiler?” Gad says with a laugh, when PEOPLE asked him and Evans during a recent sit-down if there are any Easter eggs fans should look out for. “The Easter egg I fought for [director] Bill Condon to put in but we never did, there’s a moment in the original where a bunch of snow falls on LeFou and he becomes a snowman and I thought, this could kill. It’s a little meta but it could be great [For those who may have forgotten, Gad played Olaf, the snowman in Frozen].”

Evans says his favorite scene that didn’t make the movie is one filmed during the castle battle, in which Gad’s LeFou has a fight with a bathroom appliance.

“What I miss, which we shot and is not in the film, is you having a fight with the toilet,” Evans says to Gad.

Adds Gad: “Played by Stephen Merchant (from Hello Ladies and the original Office)!”

“Yeah, it didn’t make the final cut,” Evans says with mock sadness.

Both actors joke that they have no idea what might end up on the DVD/Blu-ray because no one tells them anything.

“Nobody guarantees us anything,” says Gad. “We’re not even guaranteed that we’re going to be in the movie. It’s all based on our interview performances.

Adds Evans: “Which so far have been terrible.”

Goodbye Skam

Hello everybody

Since as we all know Skam is ending tomorrow I just wanted to take a moment to write a post thanking all the amazing people I’ve met here and that have made the Skam experience so much better.

You know, I remember the exact moment when my life here in Tumblr changed. It was the day that the last clip of episode 4x03 was about to air. I remember that I had this scene in my head and I decided to write it and post it even though I’ve never really liked to share my writings because I’ve always thought that I’m no good at it. I remember that after that I went to the cinema and when I got out of it I checked Tumblr and I was completely overwhelmed by the support and love you all showed to that drabble. And after that I decided to post another fic and after that another one and another one and another one until today.

Another meaningful moment for me was when I decided to do the Skam Week. I remember being so crashed after episode 5 that I thought I’d never write anything again but when I saw that everybody here in Tumblr was as sad as I was I decided to try to make everyone feel a little bit better and that’s how the Skam Week was born and let me tell you that I can’t thank you all enough for the support that you showed me during that week. Just the simple thought of one person taking the time to read something that I’ve written, it still amazes me.

I can’t put into words how amazing and special this season has been for me. Because I’ve had the chance to live it with all of you and that have made the whole experience a lot better. The excitement I got every time there was an update and I got to share my thoughts with you and you share yours with mine that’s something I’ve never taken for granted and it’s one of the things I’m going to miss the most.

I love Skam as a whole but this season has been special for me because I’ve got to live the full experience, I’ve got to feel the anxiety and excitement while waiting for an update, feel the frustration when the update wasn’t what we expected, feel the joy when it was better than we expected. I’ve cried, I’ve laughed, I’ve got angry and I’ve got happy and what this season has made me feel no show has ever made me feel. And again, a huge part of that is thanks to all of you who are here every day sharing this experience with me, making me feel part of something.

When things went wrong in my life for whatever reason, when I was overwhelmed or sad I’d just go in here and see your posts and your messages and I would instantly get in a better mood. When I was too tired to even write or to even think I’d tell myself “you have to do this, you owe it to them”.

With all these what I want to say is THANK YOU. Thank you, thank you and a thousand times thank you for being there to share this experience with me, via fanfics, via posts, via direct messages, via anon messages. Everything.

I’m not going to mention all the people that has been there for me one by one because I’d never end but I want to thank each of you who has taken a little bit of your time to read something I’ve posted, being it a fic or not, who has taken the time to like, reblog, comment or send me an ask. Thank you to everyone who has lived with me in my denial island where everything was happy. Thank to all of you lovely people with who I’ve been sharing conversations about Skam and about life via chats, you know who you are and you’re all super important to me. Thank you to all of you who have taken the time to translate the clips and the texts because without you, us international fans wouldn’t be able to enjoy this amazing show.

And finally, thank you SKAM.

Thank you because when I say that this show has taken over my life I swear I’m not exaggerating. This show has taken over my life this season and I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world. And especially Yousef and Sana’s relationship, I’ve never been so invested in a ship in my life because what they made me feel, I can’t even put it into words, it’s the purest relationship I’ve ever seen.

I know that once I watch the last clip I’m going to feel like a part of me has been taken and I know it’s going to be really hard to deal with the loss of Skam but I’m sure that we will survive this because we are a family. And I’d like to take this chance to say that even if tomorrow the clip isn’t what we would like it to be let’s all try to enjoy it because it’s the last clip we’ll ever get and I want us to enjoy it together, no wars, no fights.

Thank you Julie Andem for creating this show, even if sometimes we’ve wanted to kill you, you’re an awesome writer and I’ve never seen a more perfect show in my life. The way this show makes me feel with one scene, with one look, with one sentence, with one song even with one text, it’s something I’ve never felt with any other show.

Thank you Sana Bakkoush for teaching me that hate doesn’t come from religion, it comes from fear. Thank you for teaching me that we have to put other people first and we have to be nice to everyone even when they wrong us. But also thank you for teaching me that we need to speak up for ourselves and fight against the unfair. Thank you for represent all of us who feel like we’re not the main character in our own lives. Thank you for being the way you are and for teaching us to be tolerant and respectful and that we should rather be true losers than fake winners.

Thank you Isak Valtersen for teaching me that we’re not alone. Thank you for teaching me that life is now and that we should rather live a true life than a fake one. Thank you for being the one who introduced me to this amazing show.

Thank you Noora Amalie Sætre for teaching me that everyone we meet is fighting a battle we know nothing about and to be kind, always. Thank you for teaching me that people need people and that our body needs potatoes.

Thank you Eva Kviig Mohn for teaching me that our opinion of ourselves should be more important than the opinion people have about us. Thank you for teaching me to forgive and to ask for forgiveness.

Thank you Vilde, Chris, Yousef, Elias, Even, Mutta, Adam, Mikael, Jonas, Magnus, Mahdi, Linn, Eskild and every single character of this show for teaching me what a true friendship is. Thank you for teaching me what true love is. Thank you for teaching me that every story has two sides, two versions, and that we shouldn’t make assumptions until we know all the story. Thank you for teaching me that everyone makes mistakes and that we should learn from them.

Thank you SKAM for being the best show I’ve ever watched.

And thank you all for sharing this experience with me.

SKAM will end soon but we will always have it in our hearts and we won’t ever forget what this show has taught us.


And remember


Review of 14x03 “Go Big or Go Home”

“She’s still grumpy, huh?”  If you read my season 13 reviews, you know that I often criticized who Meredith had become, or more accurately, who the writers had written her to be.  Meredith, at her core, is dark and twisty, but in earlier seasons she still had basic kindness.  Seasons 12 and 13 Meredith did not.  She was bitter, snarky, and unrelatable.  Season 14 Meredith has, so far, been written much better.  And even though she spent most of this episode being angry, it was written in a way that was human.  She acknowledged her anger and dealt with it instead of just being nasty to everyone in her path.  This is a huge improvement in the writing for Meredith, in my opinion.  And since they are letting Meredith acknowledge and deal with her emotions, it makes sense that her patient would also be her therapist. Kill two birds with one stone, right?   This way Meredith can practice medicine and process her feelings.  I would have appreciated the “I am done with triangles,” line if the first major promo of the season hadn’t been solely about love triangles.  Instead, it just made me yell at my TV.  The blood clot that the psychiatrist has represents Meredith’s inability to tell Nathan how she feels.  His heart is blocked.  Her heart is blocked.  Until it isn’t and Meredith’s feelings spill out.  “You don’t have to lie.  You have to fight.  Show her that you love her.  Remind her of why she fell in love with you.  Make her see that she is your first and only choice.  Please don’t blow this.”  Not one line of that was about Megan.  

Speaking of Megan, she looks rougher recovering from surgery than she did after being held captive for ten years.

Benley – Once again, I am 100% here for them being the side couple who are happy to rub each other’s feet in a cute little scene but not be a prominent storyline.  Side note – Do Benley have a foot fetish?  Last week it was the shoes, and in every bedroom scene he is rubbing her feet.  I mean, whatever works.  I’m just wondering…

Arizona and Carina – They are having great sex, guys.  They really want us to know that.  Better than Eliza sex. Skilled sex.  Incredible sex. And good for Arizona.  Go on girl, get yours.  But…I’m not invested in them yet.  I want to hear about great sex with a couple I am rooting for.  I need more from this to fully jump on board this ship.  

Webber – I don’t think I mentioned this last week, but I am happy to see Webber back as the wise old sage.

Jolex – Yay for kissing in the elevator.  And the parking lot. And Alex moving back home. Like I said last week, I love happy Jolex, but I can’t help but wonder when the other shoe will drop.

Maluca – I was a Maluca shipper before we wanted Maggie as far away from Jackson as possible.  I said last week that I thought we should watch these two because of Carina telling Maggie that Andrew thinks she’s beautiful and Maggie clearly reacting to it.  And in this episode, they have two scenes together, one entirely discussing their relationship that leads to, like last week, Maggie calling Webber her father.  Plus, in the promo for next week, they are standing next to one another in Amelia’s room. Nothing is completely clear yet, but I still say that this may be something.  

Amelia – Caterina is playing this story well.  Amelia questioning every decision she has ever made over the last several years is heartbreaking.  And can I just applaud the writers for moving this story along?  If this story had happened last season, no one would have found out about her tumor for at least eight episodes.  I cannot be more thankful for continuity and movement this season.  My favorite scene was when Owen realized he was looking at Amelia’s scans.  Owen moving from anger to realization to pain in seconds was captured perfectly.

 Maggie/Jackson – I didn’t watch live so when I saw the tweets about Maggie touching Jackson I thought it was much bigger than what it was.  There was no ambiguity in their looks.  They looked uncomfortable, and he looked mildly annoyed.  I have a guy at my work who hugs me without asking.  I give him the same look that Jackson gave Maggie.  There was no flirtation, sexual tension, or spark.  Just awkwardness.  The writers had to do something with this story because it was brought up in the finale, so they decided to try and make it funny.  We know it is failing, and I think they do, too, whether they admit it or not.  But I see why they went this route.  It’s all part of fixing what was broken with the writing.  The way they are “fixing” the writing issues of last season are all pretty clear: make a joke out of it (Jackson/Maggie), a brain tumor (Omelia), pretend it didn’t happen (Jolex), or correct major writing flaws (Griggs).  I think that because there is such a reaction to this story, the writers thought they could bank on that and use it for comedy. They were wrong, but I see the thinking behind the decision.

Harper Avery/Jackson/April – The ONLY reason Harper Avery is in this episode is to say what he said to Jackson. He says he is there to discuss some issues he has with how the hospital has spent money, but all of that is glossed over and the focus is only on the message Harper has for Jackson.  Think about it.  They could have killed Harper off screen, and just told Jackson and been done with it. Instead, they purposely chose to bring him on screen and let us watch him call April Jackson’s wife and tell Jackson that he is like his father.  And, I know this is controversial, but I partially agree with Harper on this.  April should not have gone to Jordan the second time, but I don’t see her going as a reason for divorce.  You divorce someone because they are mean, violent, a terrible person, or they cheat.  You don’t divorce someone who is mentally broken over the loss of their child.  She absolutely hurt him, but he used that as his way out.  Whether Jackson wants to admit it or not, Robert taught him that when things are tough, you leave.  And he did. Yes, he is still there physically (for now?)  but he still walked away.  (I am ready for the messages telling me I am wrong on that point.  Go ahead.  But I will always believe Jackson has some Robert Avery inside of him.) If I am right, Jackson’s journey this season began with finding and confronting his dad last season.  He thought he needed to do that to deal with and close the trust and abandonment issues he has in his life, but I would argue that seeing Robert just ripped the hole inside him wide open.  Finding his father after just becoming a father has sent Jackson on a journey to figure out what being an Avery means to him.  Is he like Harper who seems cold, distant, and unfeeling but has unparalleled business sense and values family?  Is he like Robert who always felt not quite good enough to carry the Avery name and decided it was easier on the Averys, his wife, and his child if he was no longer a part of the picture?  Or is he someone else entirely?  Does he have the ability to be a strong business man and a strong family man?  I think Jackson will find out this season who he is as an Avery and what is ultimately important to him.  He is still under the shadow of his father and grandfather, but Harper’s death will change that.  We will either see a reappearance of Robert trying to step back in or Jackson stepping up and doing things his way.  If I am right, I think this is the perfect story for Jackson, and this journey is necessary for him to be able to have a meaningful, lasting relationship.

We have been told April has a complicated journey this season.  I think this journey started with April telling Jackson she was in pain last week and is a little clearer this week.  I think April’s journey is a mental health journey.  I am not saying April is crazy.  Far from it.  However, she has been through multiple deep traumas, and she hasn’t fully dealt with any of them.  Speaking up for what SHE needed last week was the first time, maybe ever, that we have seen April make a decision with her best interests above everyone else’s. This doesn’t mean she does not love Jackson anymore or wants to move on.  She clearly still loves him.  But for once, she is taking care of herself.  Good for her, because like Jackson’s journey, she has to fix what she is dealing with before she can be in a meaningful, lasting relationship.  This episode, in a way, walked the audience and April back through many of her traumas.  The brought up several of the major things April has dealt with over the years for a reason.  They are reminding us what she has been through and what she still needs to deal with. We see that April is hurting from the beginning when she is (as always) a supportive friend to Arizona, even though it hurts.  April has been a shoulder to lean on for many of the other characters, yet she hasn’t had one in return.  Jackson is the only confidant and support she has had, but she cannot lean on him right now. The Nicole Herman mention is used as a part of Ameila’s story, but we can’t hear that name and not flash back in our minds to April and Jackson holding their dying son in that dimly lit hospital room.  The Matthew flash-mob proposal mention hints at another moment that April has to be still dealing with mentally.  In no way do I think she regrets marrying Jackson, but leaving Matthew, who whether you like him or not is a good man, went against everything she believes and tested her moral compass.  (Side note: I saw all the tweets praying that Matthew doesn’t come back.  You might see him again.  Don’t make it more than what it is.  Closure for April.)  I think at this point April is questioning herself, her choices, her actions, and everything she believes.  Because “No matter how many vows you make, you still end up in a new apartment and don’t see your kid half the time.”  April believed in promises and vows and happily ever afters.  But did any of that work out for her?  Is that her fault?  And where does she go next?  In the end, the camera focuses on April as the voiceover asks, “How do we save lives when ours may be falling apart?”  And that is exactly how April feels right now.  Her life has fallen apart.  And what is she supposed to do about it?

Jackson and April’s journeys, if I am right, are tough this season, and I think we will see them mostly face their obstacles alone.  Because they need to.  Jackson needs to learn how to trust, and April needs to make herself happy before they can come back together.  Otherwise, they will have the same problems and end up right back where they are.  For those of you that think they are done, go back and look at the scenes they were in.  Japril is the underlying message, the elephant in the room, the unspoken word in most, if not all of them.  Harper Avery’s dying message to Jackson was to bring his WIFE and CHILD to dinner and not to be like his father.  That line is completely unnecessary to a Jackson storyline that is only about HAF and does not involve April.  April easily could have helped those sixteen-year-olds go to the dance without relating it to her personal story.  Sarah plays comedy well and those scenes could have been written that way if her storyline is not going to involve Jackson, but they weren’t.  I see everyone’s frustration, and I get it. However, I THINK we may be at the beginning of a beautiful story of Jackson and April finding themselves, and then each other, if we are patient enough to wait for it.

Forbidden Touch (Mature)

I hope you all enjoy this imagine! The concept is little different, I know it’s not the usual writing you get with Justin Bieber imagines but I had fun writing it. I feel the end might be a little messy but I’m sticking to my word of uploading tonight. Enjoy!

She lays rigid with her head resting on the pillows, and she looks more peaceful than I’ve ever seen her. I don’t want to wake her but I know if I don’t, the sun will do the job eventually.

“[Y/N],” I whisper, leaning over her. “Baby. C’mon, wake up.”

It takes a few more times for her to start to stir and then she does, she stretches just as a cat would and it makes me fall in love with her even more. When her eyes open, they land on me and I see the magnificent colours wrapped around her pupils.

“Morning,” she croaks and performs another stretch that lands her on her stomach and on the other side of the bed. “Do I have to get up?”

“If you wanna get breakfast before dinnertime, yes,” I chuckle and move away from her as she throws the covers off of her body. She lets out a heavy sigh.

“Lay with me,” she mutters, patting the space next to her. I suspect she instantly regrets her words, knowing the impossibility of what she asks of me. The silence is tense for a few seconds. “I’m going to get a shower.” She sends a small smile my way while clambering to her feet, abandoning the warmth of her bed. She reaches out to me before quickly withdrawing her hands, and moves towards the door. I see the sadness flash in her eyes.

“I love you,” I say, throwing in every ounce of emotion I can.

“I love you too,” she replies and she’s out of the door. It isn’t long before I hear the water running.

I can’t help but think about how lucky she is to be able to touch her soft skin - I can only assume its softness - and caress her body. She could spend all day running her hand across her legs or playing with her hair, I imagine myself in her place and it seems to far away.

Unable to stop the thought from popping up in my mind, I’m forced to think about it in the car. It’s worse thinking about it while she’s so near; a part of me feels like I’m betraying her, like I’m having thoughts that are forbidden. I’m always afraid she can sense whenever it’s on my mind.

The car ride is silent for the majority of the time, but it’s comfortable. [Y/N] hums to the songs on the radio every now and then and it makes me smile, I so desperately want to reach out and touch her hand but I don’t.

“Justin,” she says, breaking the quiet. “Can I ask you something?” She stares ahead. She hasn’t been humming for a while.

“Of course, princess,” I switch between the road and her side profile.

“Do you think we can ever be normal?” she asks, still not looking at me. I hold back a sigh.

“You wanna do this right now? [Y/N], you know this conversation only upsets us both.” This would be the point where I’d lovingly hold her hand. I ache to do it.

“I do, because we never finish the conversation. We always find a way out of it, I’m always left reassured but I don’t care if it leaves me crushed, I need that, I need honesty.”

I don’t say anything for a while; I let her words hang loosely in the air before finding the right words to say. “Honestly? No. I don’t think we’ll ever be normal, but that doesn’t mean we can’t work. We’re different than normal couples, but we’re in love, it has to work.”

She nods, acknowledging that I spoke, not that she agrees. “You say we’re not like normal couples as though it’s something so simple. You touch me, you die. I could kill you, Justin. We’re so far from not normal.”

I watch her curl up into herself, and I feel the familiar clenching of my heart with the knowledge that I can’t physically comfort her. In moments like these, dying seems worth it.

“Some people say they’d die for their partner. In our situation, it’s reality,” I whisper. “I’d die for you if it meant I got just one minute to touch you.”

“Don’t say that,” she lets out a whisper of her own. “You wouldn’t,” she says, but I know she doesn’t believe herself.

“It’d be a blissful way to die.”

Neither of us speak after that, not until we’re parked in the parking lot of the cafe we’re so used to having breakfast in. I shut off the engine and wait for [Y/N] to make the first move.

“I don’t want breakfast anymore,” she informs me, finally looking over at me.

“What do you mean?” I ask, knowing a frown is etched onto my face.

“We can’t go in there and have breakfast like a normal couple after you’ve just said something like that. I want to work on this, on us.”

I understand what she means and immediately start the engine of the car once more, ignoring the growling of my stomach. “So, where do you wanna go?”

“I want to go home, just to be with you,” she says. “We can make our own breakfast.”

We drive home and I’m almost certain [Y/N] has heard my stomach growl multiple times throughout the journey.

“Tell me what you want? What do you want to do?” I ask, shutting the front door. [Y/N] turns to face me after having kicked off her shoes.

“I want to be loved.”

“You are loved,” I say, quickly moving closer. “I love you so, so much. I heart aches with how much love I feel for you.”

“No,” she says, “loved. I want to be touched and held. It hurts that we can never be intimate together.”

“I’m sorry too. I want that as much as you do, baby.” I send her a loving look that I realise could be mistaken for pity.

“How are you still with me?” she asks, and I’m sure I feel my heart crack a little.

“Because I love you, not being able to touch you isn’t a deal breaker for me,” I rasp, moving dangerously close to her, so close that I could feel the warmth radiating off her skin. “I love you just as much as I would if I could feel you.”

“You’re so sweet,” she whispers and I’m sure I see her eyes watering. “I love you.”

“As I hoped you would.” I grin. “So, you wanna experiment?”


Barging through the door, I don’t think I’ve ever felt so much excitement rushing through my body. I practically trip my way up the stairs with the bag clenched in my fist. The mere thought of [Y/N] waiting for me is enough to make me shiver.

And she is, she’s spread out beautifully across her bed. I don’t think I’ve ever seen something so wonderful. She smiles when I enter and it causes me to imitate her instantly.

“Hey princess,” I rasp, and she simply continues to smile while rolling around the bed slowly.

I’ve never witnessed [Y/N] naked, not in the entire two years we’ve been together. We didn’t think it was necessary; we can’t touch each other, why dwell on it? Although, now I’m in this situation, my mind is full of many scenarios, the scene laying ahead of us being one of them.

“Did you do what I said?” I ask, knowing I don’t really have to as her hands wander beneath the covers.

“Mhm.” She bites down on her bottom lip with a seductive look in her eyes. I feel energy building up inside me and I can’t hold off on digging into the bag.

I refrain from looking back at [Y/N] until the vibrator is out of the box and in my hands and ready for use. When I do, she’s watching me with an intense gaze, I suppress a groan and crawl onto the bed.

“Are you sure about this?” she asks.

“Only if you are. I’m not doing this unless you want to.”

“I want to, I really do, but I’m scared, Justin. You shouldn’t come near me,” she says.

“[Y/N], it’s going to be okay. Just relax. Please,” I whisper, grabbing the corner of the covers and slowly pulling them away from her body, all while making sure not to touch her.

To my surprise, [Y/N] didn’t make any movement as her body was revealed me. It made her even more attractive to me to know she wasn’t insecure. And she had no reason to be; she was perfect.

“If we were normal, you have no idea how long I’d spend caressing your skin.”

“I’d love that,” she whines, arching her back.

“I know this is my first time seeing you like this, but it’s slowly becoming my favourite side of you,” I mutter, letting my eyes slide over her figure innocently, although they rested on her hardened nipples for a while longer.

One simple movement causes [Y/N]’s breath to hitch and her body to come alive. I can only guess that her skin is burning like fire. Moving towards her, my heart is stammering in my chest, so much that I’m sure it’s going to break through.

The vibrator echoes through the room, the hum changes to a lower pitch as it presses down against [Y/N]’s clit. She gasps louder than I expect, and I moan along with her.

“Baby,” I whisper, kneeling before her. “That good?’

“Oh my God,” she mumbles. Her eyes are already rolling back into her skull. “Justin, please.”

I can’t help but think about how beautiful this experience is. I hope that with her eyes closed and her mind wandering, she can find peace and lead herself to imagine it’s my fingers touching her and bringing her closer and closer.

“Talk to me, babygirl. Talk to me. Am I working you right?”

“You’re so good, baby,” she pants. “But do you know what would make this even hotter?” she asks as she rolls her hips up to meet the vibrator twirling against her clit. “If you got off with me.”

“Really?” I question her, but I’m already dying to release my growing hard on. “Here, hold this.” I hold the tip of the vibrator, letting her grab it in her own dainty fingers. Standing up, I pull my shirt over my head before beginning on the button of my jeans.

I relish in the sight of [Y/N] pleasuring herself; her head lolling backwards every now and then, as though it’s impossible for her to keep it up in the height of her pleasure.

Once my jeans and boxes are discarded on the floor, [Y/N] averts her eyes towards me. I grin as she looks me up and down, she doesn’t do it for long because she arches her back and lets out a small cry.

I take back control and resume my movements with the vibrator against [Y/N]’s clit, now sliding it up and down and watching as her body jerks in surprise. Meanwhile, I feel the heat within the room now that my hand is paying close attention to cock.

“I-I’m close,” she trembles while her fingers grip onto the bedsheets beneath her. I can see sweat forming at her hairline, and I’m sure my cheeks are turning just as pink as hers are.

“Holy shit,” I grunt, speeding up my strokes when I feel my stomach tighten momentarily.

I’m both distracted and spurred on by [Y/N] and her orgasm nearing. I struggle to jerk myself and keep the pressure on her clit.

“Do something for me. Whatever you think’ll help you cum harder, do it,” I say, almost breathless.

She presses her boobs with the palms of her hands, rubbing in a circular motion. Once again, her back arches and it’s still a wonderful sight this time around.

“Are you gonna cum for me?” I know she is.

“Y-Yes,” she whimpers. “Justin, I’m there. Please-“

She doesn’t finish her sentence, she cums instead. The sight of her hands groping her boobs and the sound of her is enough to bring me dangerously close, especially the cry that leaves her lips; it’s longer and louder than anything I’ve ever heard come from her mouth.

“Oh my God.” She relaxed and sinks into the pillows, licking her lips. “Fuck.”

I’m on the edge and don’t trust myself to utter a word. Instead, I focus my eyes on [Y/N], just her, and stroke my cock just a little faster. Involuntary moans escape my parted lips, and it causes [Y/N] to open her eyes and look at me, as though she’s just remembered my climax is near.

“Cum for me,” she whispers. “Please, Justin, I want it so much.” Her voice is smooth like melting chocolate over intense heat, and I can’t put off obeying her.

“Holy shit,” I whisper one last time before my stomach tightens completely and my body falls into a spasm. I feel [Y/N]’s eyes on me as feel the pleasure seep through my veins. Despite the intensity, it lasts a mere few seconds more before I’m left breathlessly.

“That was so hot,” I moan and fall next to her. I notice her flinch away instantly but I don’t say anything. “See, we can still have these moments.”

“You’re right,” she whispers. “That was perfect.”

I feel closer to [Y/N] all of a sudden, even though I haven’t laid a finger on her. I don’t feel so alone. I can only wonder if [Y/N] feels the same, after all, it’s her that commits murder if she touches anyone.

anonymous asked:

Hi! I keep watching the S3 finale and slinging between the theory that Will planned Hannibal's escape and his lines are actually subliminally gesturing his intent to slip away with Hannibal; and the theory that Will decides to be a martyr ("found religion"), kill the Dragon and die with Hannibal ("kill them all") in which is ultimately murder/suicide. I know the latter is the popular theory but the former haunts me, particularly due to Will's last conversation with Bedelia! Thoughts? Thank you!

This is something I’ve written quite a bit on previously but not recently, so I hope you won’t mind if I mostly just defer to Bryan Fuller on this one. The following is an excerpt from an interview with Variety that came out right after the finale, and fwiw, I agree with Bryan: the way he describes it is the way I understood it from watching the show. 

Fans already seem to be speculating about Will and Hannibal’s intentions in that final scene — from your perspective, was Will hoping they’d die from that fall, or planning for them to survive? What was going through his mind in those last moments?

All season long, it had been developing this story of Will’s realization, even as he is going into Europe to track down his friend, that his agenda — as Chiyoh (Tao Okamoto) points out — is “I have to kill Hannibal in order to not become Hannibal.” And he gets so fed up with the machinations of the relationship and Hannibal sawing his head open and trying to get at his brain that he’s just like “f–k it, I’m done with you, I’m walking away.” And yet, as he states in the finale, that was all a ruse to get Hannibal to turn himself in. And so it was kind of a band-aid on a bigger wound, and then when Will is pulled back in to the Red Dragon arc, he’s asking Bedelia, “is Hannibal in love with me?” and Bedelia is saying “is this a ‘can’t live with him, can’t live without him?‘” And essentially it is, and that’s sort of the conclusion Will comes to at the end, “I can’t live with him, I can’t live without him. This is the scenario where the least amount of people can die,” meaning, “the two of us.”

I think when Hannibal says, “This is all I ever wanted for you; this is all I ever wanted for both of us,” Will is forced to acknowledge that what they just experienced was actually a beautiful thing. He lingers on that feeling of, “it was beautiful and I will desire it again, and I will be chasing this feeling.” And as he said to Hannibal earlier, “I may not be able to save myself, and that’s just fine.” I feel like we were very honest with the audience in terms of saying exactly what Will does at the end — we said it a few times.

The foreshadowing was delightfully heavy in this episode.

And yet it still feels like a little bit of a surprise at the end. [The post-credits scene with Bedelia] was very intentionally setting up another season of the story … essentially saying that Hannibal could’ve survived….

As you said, Bedelia and Will actually discussed whether he and Hannibal are in love with each other in the penultimate episode, and it feels like the show spelled out the answer fairly clearly, even if it’s not an overtly sexual love — but where do you think Will lands on that, in the end?

I think that’s what motivates the leap, is his realization that Hannibal was right all along. As beautiful as that felt to him, he understands that it is a place that who he is will not survive in, and so his option is essentially to pull the plug on the whole story, and that’s the only way he’s going to win himself back. It’s a sad gesture in so many ways….

When did you come up with the idea for this finale — was it between seasons, or further back?

It came about halfway through season two and we knew that Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter had to work together to defeat the Red Dragon, and that was a big move forward in their relationship, that the two actually hunt side by side … we needed something much more impactful and much more intimate, and Steve Lightfoot started talking about Sherlock and Moriarty and Reichenbach Falls and then it was like, “of course, that’s exactly what we need to do, and that murder-suicide for Will is what’s going to define his character and his last heroic act,” and it just felt perfect, so hats off to Arthur Conan Doyle. (x)

My problem with the theory that Will was planning a true escape for Hannibal has two parts (besides the fact that that just isn’t the story they told, as Bryan said here).

First, it doesn’t follow a logical character-growth arc for Will. I suppose the argument must be that Will discovered that he missed Hannibal too much and therefore decided to run off with him after all, as he talked about wanting to back in “Aperitivo.” But that just ignores Will’s struggles with his compassion and morality: he’s mortified by what he’s caused to happen to Frederick Chilton, he feels responsible for the attack on his family, plus the original thought he’d had that he’s afraid of becoming Hannibal (which he feels is very real when he finds killing Dolarhyde beautiful). At no point do they tell the reverse story that Will is warming up to the ideas of killing or becoming like Hannibal. He doesn’t come away from Frederick Chilton’s maiming going, “That was gr9,″ or the attack on his family thinking “My ex is gr9,” or anything else he goes through. This version of the story is just not present.

Secondly, it’s not in keeping with the style of storytelling that the writers engage in on Hannibal. Bryan withholds information a number of times to generate big reveals, but he does it in a way that is driven by emotional content rather than intellectual content. In other words, Hannibal isn’t a story that you can “solve” the way people try to solve for the big twist in, say, Mr. Robot., or an M. Night Shyamalan movie, or trying to make it so the monolith in 2001 is a metaphor for a film screen. The theory that Will was planning Hannibal’s escape–while emotional in the sense of being romantic–is a story that would have to play by “solving”: the plan was X, Y, Z, but Will really planned A, B, C, and blah blah. (And in the meantime, shoehorning some goofy explanation in to make his conversation with Hannibal at the Chesapeake Bay house be #CODE since they didn’t actually, yanno, discuss escaping, but instead talked a lot about dying for a friend.) I mean, maybe Bryan’s special touch could make this feel a lot less like “solving,” but I’m pretty skeptical. 

Another facet of the issue of style of storytelling comes down to the secondary role the romance plays, next to the horror, and IMO, this is one of those places where fandom, being so primarily caught up in the relationship, goes astray with trying to interpret the story. Shipper goggles, I guess. Hannibal may have some things in common with a romantic comedy in terms of trope and device, but it has nothing in common with it in terms of tone and mood (and theme), and make no mistake: nothing controls the nature and quality of a story more strongly than tone and mood. In spite of the title, this is how you know it’s more Will Graham’s story than Hannibal Lecter’s story. Hannibal is horror about loneliness and grief and trauma. It’s not about finding love and mischievous reunions and getting off scot-free. It’s not about to let Will off the hook that easily, frankly.  

None of this is to say that some part of Will won’t always want to run off with Hannibal. He says so himself, and, in the sense of a subconscious thing, or a while-falling-to-your-death kind of revelation, he may very much want to escape with Hannibal even while he plans and tries to kill him. It just isn’t what he was endeavoring to achieve in “The Wrath of the Lamb.”

P.S. I’ve never seen this reality, so I hope I’ve made “justice” to reality / “Mami” is a sweet nickname for “Mom”


“Babe… Wake up.”  

A tired groan made your son laugh but you were well away from being happy. You knew perfectly what day it was and the idea of staying alone with both your children scared you slightly.  

Especially since it was the first time. You still couldn’t understand how your manager had succeeded, aided by your beautiful, sweet and cheating wife, to become part of the cast of “Return of Superman”. Because you kept, after four years, to hold you a bad father. You were often absent for work and you had lost every moment really important.  

You couldn’t imagine that but your twins, the little Jaesi and Wonwoo, loved you in an unconditional way and rejoiced for every little moment that you spent together.  

“They’ve already prepared the cameras and I have to go, Jaebum..” The sweetness in your wife’s voice forced you to open your eyes and her hair gently tickle your face.  

“At least it’s an easy task?”  

“The easiest love, promised.” She murmured, just touching your lips with a little peck.  


“I’m awake Jaesi, I’m awake princess.” Immediately the sweet weight of your daughter took your breath away since she had thrown herself with all her strength on your chest, but those little attentions were able to banish your grumpy side in less than a few seconds.  

If you were to admit that you were incredibly softened by the day you found out that your wife was pregnant, but you were always trying to show some detachment because otherwise she would start teasing you and you couldn’t bear it.  

“Are you quite presentable to get out of the bedroom..?”  

“I’ll make myself prepared by Jaesi, she’s very good at setting up Appa’s hair, right?”  

The youngest of the house started hopping on the bed due to her suddenly joy, while the amused look of your wife made you smile and you followed her with your eyes when she stepped out of your room.  

The door remained open and after a few minutes a sleepy and grumpy, he had taken everything from you as you always repeated, Wonwoo made his entrance and climbed on the bed.  

He hid his face between the pillows and you watched him smiling, resting your head again on your pillow and starting to gently caress his back.  

“Appa I want to sleep…”  

“Me too Wonwoo, me too..” You whispered accomplice, turning around on your back and taking him in your arms letting him laid on you. One of the things you most loved was that, staying in bed and cuddling them until you were able to feel your cheeks hurt because of the too much smiling.  

Immediately he curled against you and you could feel that he had started to suck his finger since you had recently started trying to make him stop the pacifier.  

“App–why is he here? I had to make you beautiful! ”  

“Don’t get upset, a long day expect us and you’ve to be good with your appa….”  

“We shall see, pft.” She snorted and stepped out of the room leaving you grounded and making you realize that those forty-eight hours would have been incredibly, frightfully endless.

Summary: Y/N wanted her husband back and she didn’t care if she had cross through a million parallel universes, she’d find him but she nor he had any idea just what would happen when she would.

Barry stared at the doppelganger of Y/N that had just entered through the breach, the heavily pregnant doppelganger of Y/N.

Her eyebrows knitted together in worry, lips pulled down as she cradled her tummy, the white material of her maternity dress stretched over tummy and the too-large cream cardigan scrunched as her arms curled over her pronounced belly. E/C eyes watching Barry and the Team Flash warily. He couldn’t help but notice her glow and just how radiant she was with a new life growing inside of her and he felt a stab in his chest: a stab of jealousy at who had helped create the unborn child in her tummy. 

He didn’t know why though; he had been with this Earth’s Y/N for quite a while but his unresolved feelings for Iris drove the two of them apart and the heartbroken Y/N ended up moving to Coast City to continue her practice as an Obstetrician, needing a break from Barry and his craziness while he lived out his childhood dream of being with Iris West.

Now here he was, eternally questioning ‘what if?’ in light of the current situation and every one of those internalised doubts, started with her name. “Y/N?” Barry asked, taking a step toward her to which she answered with a step back, fear colouring her gorgeous features. “Hey it’s alright, we’re not going to hurt you, I promise.”

anonymous asked:

top 5 (or 10) scenes in the 100 in terms of acting? (like, which scenes stood out to you, or which scenes do you think highlighted any of the actors' ability?)

This is such a good question! It’s hard to narrow them down to ten because there’s so many I love, but here are the ones that came to my mind first! So in no particular order:

1. Raven realising her pain is gone [3x05]

One of my all-time favourites! Moments after Raven succumbs to the temptation and takes the key to the City of Light, we get this spine-chilling shot where her revelation, her absence of pain starts at her leg and creeps up to the rest of her body. The entire scene, beginning with her taking the chip to here is absolutely stunning. Lindsey so beautifully straightens herself and looks up, and that’s when we know that Raven knows that it’s worked. It was executed so perfectly, kudos to the wonderful Lindsey Morgan!

2. Clarke scrubs at the blood on her hands [2x09]

Eliza’s performance in this scene really reminded me of Lady Macbeth from Shakespeare’s Macbeth, as she tried to scrub away the blood she was hallucinating (’Out, damned spot! out, I say!’). Taking place immediately after Clarke had mercy-killed Finn, Eliza perfectly displayed the hysteria of this moment as she shakes and raves incoherently. Her sharp breaths really encapsulate the trauma Clarke has just experienced too. It’s just beautiful.

3. Bellamy is overwhelmed by a sense of failure [4x07]

It’s really difficult to choose a scene with Bob Morley because each scene he acts in really does display how talented he is. Of course, the 4x04 scene where Bellamy realises Octavia is dead is breathtaking and still haunts me, but that’s a given, so I’m choosing another scene. This moment from 4x07 made me cry…a lot. As Bellamy had to sit and listen to people he could have saved die because he failed them, watch his gaze. He is not mentally there. His gaze is so very distant, it’s made to feel like he’s seeing all his failures play out before his very eyes. He breaks then and there as he’s forced to listen to the vocalisation of his failure, the nasty feeling settling deep within. Bob was fantastic through 4x07, but this scene really got to me.

4. Raven blows up the bridge [1x10]

I remember the first time I watched I Am Become Death, I fell in love with this particular moment in the episode. Raven staggers to the end of the bridge and, with the little energy she has left, successfully sets up and sets off the bomb. It was so wonderfully done by Lindsey, everything from the way she moved to the breaths she took was oh so perfect.

5. Clarke tells Bellamy that the world is ending [3x16]

This is one of my favourite Bellamy and Clarke moments – look how intense Bob and Eliza’s gazes are! They really do perfectly display just how exhausted Bellamy and Clarke are, and in finding out they can’t kick back just yet, we can see them search each other’s eyes for strength and hope.

6. Monty kills his mother [3x11]

Monty killing his mother was one of the most intense scenes I’ve ever seen on this show. Chris did such an amazing job with this…the screams Monty let out? They’re a vocalisation of just how traumatising this is for Monty, how he has to make noise, make chaos in order to pull back the trigger. And it was all so perfect. My heart broke when watching this scene, and even more so afterwards when Monty realised his mother’s death was sort of in vain because he might have been able to save her.

7. Pike and Bellamy talk about Mount Weather [3x04]

This scene between Michael and Bob is of the most fascinating from season 3. I was rewatching it and decided that I really did enjoy Pike’s character. The reason why this scene is in here is that we see, so perfectly from Michael, Pike locating Bellamy’s low point, and catches him when he’s weakest. @cosmicbell often labels Pike as a demagogue when we discuss this season together, and I agree. He promised action, he criticised stagnancy and Bellamy, somebody who’s been extremely affected by the grounders’ actions, was just tired of waiting around and never retaliating. He bought into Pike’s argument, and this is the scene that it occurs in. You see it in his face as Pike challenges him: ‘I’m willing to suffer the consequences to save my people…are you?’ and we know that Bellamy has begun to cross over to the dark side.

8. Jasper scatters Finn’s ashes [3x04]

I highly recommend everybody to rewatch this spectacular scene with Devon and Chris, from start to finish. It’s one of my favourites from the whole show. These two best friends have lost each other, and they’re trying to find that old spark once more. They fight, they argue, they yell. They’re no longer the pair they used to be. And as Monty leaves, Jasper screams ‘See you on the other side!’ and trips over, spilling the jar of ashes. The remnants blow away with the breeze, mingle with the Earth and Jasper realises what’s just happened…and Devon’s performance in that moment is so incredibly breathtaking. One of his best, for sure. 

9. Murphy makes Clarke cry [4x08]

This is fairly recent, of course, but Richard and Eliza were amazing throughout this entire scene. Murphy’s desperation is so well voiced by Richard: when he screamed ‘I love her!’ my heart broke completely. And as Murphy starts provoking Clarke, I began to wonder how Eliza would portray Clarke’s reaction. Clarke, who has, in the past, tried to develop a harder exterior around her friends when making tough decisions…she did something I did not expect. She lifted her head slightly, and through her lashes looks at Murphy, and her eyes are glistening with tears! She’s been trying this whole scene to be assertive in her decision to use Emori but Murphy’s speech almost takes her to her breaking point. I was really impressed with both Richard and Eliza here, they were just amazing!

10. Niylah tells Bellamy that he’ll always be sorry [3x11]

Bob Morley, once again and as always, comes through perfectly in this scene he shortly shares with Jessica Harmon. ALIE got to Bellamy, and bad. ‘Too bad you were never that devoted to Gina.’? Do you know what Bellamy heard, instead of that? Probably something like ‘you could have saved her, but you spent that concern on Clarke, who didn’t even end up coming back to Arkadia with you. You killed Gina. You misplaced your responsibilities, so it’s your fault.’ And the final straw: the mention of what he did to the Trikru army, and Niylah hitting him after finding out. Bellamy flips out and has to leave the room, kicking a barrel, punching something. He looks up to the sky, so incredibly hopeless, and shakes his head. He’s realising he’s never going to get over this pain, he’s never going to stop feeling guilty, and worst of all, the pain he’s caused to others is so deep and so sharp and he can’t handle knowing that. He hears Niylah’s voice behind him, and the sight of her brings all these emotions back. He tells her what he truly feels, that he only had good intentions and he’s sorry, but she delivers a harsh sentence: ‘People like you always are’. This small moment between these two was jaw-dropping to me. I loved it so much.

Honourable mentions: Lincoln’s season 2 ordeal with the reaper drugs, literally all of Erica Cerra’s (ALIE/Becca) scenes, the Lexa and Roan fight from 3x04, Clarke getting in the rover with Jasper and discovering Abby is chipped, Luna mourning Derrick in her arms, Octavia surviving the fall in 4x04 and Abby smashing the radiation chamber in 4x08.

after the finale i spent like a week rewatching khonjin house trying to figure out what the heck is going on and due to popular demand here it is but it is long

note tho that this is my interpretation and as we get the sequel Khonjin and Supermental things may be proven wrong

you’ve probably also heard all this bullcrap before

marino-kun  asked:

I just read your explanation about the abomination chapter in teen wolf and I almost cry. It was so deep, that there people (like stiles) doesn't see Derek like a monster."Stiles telling Derek it’s okay to be… Derek. " *crying😭❤️". So I want to ask, what it would be your theory about Derek being the King in Stiles's chessboard ? That was something really big but they never explain it.

Ah thank you! I’m glad you appreciated my answer to that! :) And nice question because I do also have a theory about that one!

First of all I need to point out that season 3 is my favorite Sterek season, especially 3b even though you guys might think “why, Andi?! there was barely any sterek!”. Well, the sterek in 3b was subtle and I’m not saying whether it was intentional or not but fact is that it’s there and I was all over it. Oh yes.

Derek spent that whole season falling over himself trying to keep Stiles safe. I love Derek, he’s my favorite character ever so don’t take what I’m going to say too harshly, but that boy has had the same motto since season 1: kill those who are killing innocents. All Derek wants is to keep innocents safe from supernaturals that use their abilities for evil instead of good (something I think is a lot influenced by the fact that Derek lives with the guilt that his loved ones died because of him being a supernatural himself), and we saw him kill his own uncle and being supportive of killing Lydia when he thought she was the kanima because despite the fact that her human side was innocent he still knew the Kanima side was out there killing innocents and the life of one person can’t have more worth than the life of dozens.

But then 3B comes and by that point the elevator scene has already happened and Derek has already changed his anchor from anger to Stiles. So we have a boy who left town with his sister because he was finally feeling in perfect control again after finding an anchor that is kind and good and trustworthy, and then he comes back to chaos in Beacon Hills and his anchor being evil. 

Now you’d think, well this is Derek Hale, who only wants to help people, and that is Stiles Stilinski who, sure, is a good person but whose body is getting people killed left and right while no one has been able to find a way to separate him from the nogitsune. Under normal circumstances we would’ve had Derek chasing down Stiles and eliminating the threat - again, not because he’d be perfectly fine killing an innocent boy that was being forced to do horrible things, but because it’s a “one life vs dozens of lives” situation.

But what we get instead is Derek bending over backwards trying to keep Stiles safe, joining forces with Allison and Chris ARGENT (one of them, btw, that tried to kill him and his betas and got his betas imprisoned and tortured) to make sure they don’t have their own agenda and work against Stiles while he’s not looking. Then he also started working with the twins, who ACTUALLY got Erica and Boyd killed. Do you actually think Derek would do that out of his own volition? Nope, he really wouldn’t and this is where the king enters.

I don’t know much about chess, but I do know that while the King is the most important piece of the board it is not the strongest. We are told by Peter that chess is Stiles’ game, not the nogitsune’s, which means that the board had a message directly from Stiles and Derek (knowing perfectly well how smart and resourceful Stiles is) listened to Peter and looked for clues and he found them.

This is based on a lot of things I’ve read through the years, so I’m not the only person who believes this to be true: the board was Stiles’ way to keep Derek safe. How, you ask me? Because at that point Derek didn’t really have anyone to trust besides the Sheriff. He was running around with the Argents keeping an eye on them and Argents aren’t people Derek will trust to take to war, so there’s a really high chance that when the final battle against the nogitsune actually happened Derek would be a dumb dumb and go alone because you’re safer by yourself than with your enemies, right?

Wrong. And Stiles told him that through that chess board where he placed Derek as his king, one move away from check mate (from what I remember, but I might be wrong about this) and being protected by pawns that coincidentally have aiden and ethan’s names on them, which was Stiles’ way of saying “hey, sourwolf, I know you can be a butthead about things, but this is serious and we can end this but don’t you dare go fight alone because I fear you’ll die if you don’t have help and I can’t have that!”.

Derek read Stiles message, understood it, and against all odds he convinced the twins (whom, let’s be realistic here, he hates with good reason) to fight by his side and it was a fantastic move because alone Derek would’ve been most likely killed, but with his two backups Aiden ended up being the fallen one.

So, tldr: what is the meaning of Stiles making Derek his king? It means that, in the middle of all the fucked up shit that was going on, while being possessed by a thousand years old evil spirit that was killing and killing and killing, while being really fucking scared, Stiles Stilinski took a damn moment to trick the trickster and left a message in that board for the most important piece and the message was “Derek, don’t you dare die on me, we still haven’t said ‘I love you’”.

It worked pretty well in the end :)

The Barn 5


Sakura remembered the words she learned from before she left the shadow of the coven.

The difference between a blood witch and a bone witch is all in their names. There’s not much more to it than that.’

Sakura had believed the lie for years. In hindsight, she was embarrassed at how naive she could be. She had listened when they told her that all witches were primarily the same, that there wasn’t anything more to the labels they picked up after become dames and dons.

The more they clashed, the more Sakura saw it; the lie of uniqueness’ death.

Blood favor made Karin fast with her magic humming so close to the surface, but her blows didn’t stick and sink as well. Sakura’s magic was heavier and slower, but carried far more heart when it struck true. Bone favor made her stronger than stone.

The game between then was speed and strength; winning hinged on who balanced their strengths with their weaknesses better. Karin had the advantage of tailored practice keeping her spell casting fit, but Sakura was far more rested and ready to unload spell after spell.

Between the two of them, the game of stamina would always favor Sakura, but especially after Karin was weak from a blood letting. The difference was like a lake verses a sidewalk puddle.

It didn’t last long, but seconds were hours when magic was hot in the air. It felt like forever to Sakura who made her body a conduit.






The commands came out so loose and easy. Sakura would shout them while Karin seemed to kiss the air with her words before flickering out of focus. Unlike Sakura, she didn’t waste as much time on hand signs or gestures to guide the flow of her magic.

Sakura crossed her hands in an X formation over her chest and shouted ‘shield’ before uncrossing her arms and shouting, ‘shatter!’ with her fingers spread wide.

Karin reached up to try and shield, but the magic was thin. That was the difference between a blood witch and a bone witch. Sakura might not have been able to catch Karin, but that mattered less and less when the fight was head on.

The bones in Sakura’s hands had been broken and fractures so many times, making the calcium buildup thinker in the healed places. She had forgotten what that felt like until her magic was rushing over it. As the seconds stretched forever, more details glared at Sakura, bright and unyielding.

Holiday’s With You

Member: Jinyoung x Reader

W.C. 3K

T.W.: A few curse words near the end.

A.N. Been busy lately, just been wanting to write something festive for the upcoming holidays and everything, and post it before the comeback. I’ll be ready to post more things soon.

The days were starting to get shorter. The nights were starting to get longer. The weather was starting to change. These are clear signs that the fall and winter season has finally arrived. It was Jinyoung’s favorite season to share it with someone. Sure the spring and summer time was nice but that usually was dealt with lots of sweating and sunburns, but the fall and winter was just right. To walk in the park hand in hand while hearing the sounds of laughter and the crunching of leafs being stepped on. To go to a small coffee shop where the atmosphere is filled with warmth and comfort; where you share glances of the person you love, siting right across from you, smiling at you while they’re drinking their cup of hot chocolate. But the best part of this season for him is the sleep. Sleeping in till the last possible minute because the warmth of having you in his arms made him, feel like he was in paradise. Or going to bed together and the bed is icy and whenever you two start to cuddle each other, the bed would warm up.

Though he loved doing that, he was miles away from you. He was in a country that doesn’t really have the changing of seasons. Where the weather is just hot and makes you feel sticky, and where it’s rather unpredictable for the most part. But most importantly this country didn’t have you. He can just picture what you were doing at the moment. You were back home, most likely in the both you shared apartment, most likely sleeping on the couch, because you fell asleep while watching some tv show.

Just picturing you, makes him realize how much he misses you. The thought of him you for work made his heartache but actually physical being away from you was far worse. Though he doesn’t consider himself a clingy person, like where he wants to know where you are 24/7, wants you to be with him and only him. No it wasn’t’ like that at all; he just enjoys your presence. He enjoys it whenever you’re with him in complete and utter silence, while he’s reading a book and you’re on your laptop, he loves it.  Everything with you was just better especially spending the holidays together. He wasn’t much of the type of person who does all those sort of “couple dates” during the holidays. Such as pumpkin picking, going walking through the parks to see the leaves change colors, or even have a themed couple costume for Halloween. It didn’t make sense to him before, matter of fact it still doesn’t make much sense to him but seeing your smile asking him if the both of you could do something like that, made him melt. He couldn’t say no to you; he didn’t want to ruin the excitement that you had.

Thinking about this just gives him an uneasy feeling because he remembered telling you that he probably wouldn’t be home for the holidays.

After a long hard day of practicing choreography for their upcoming comeback, the boys stayed back to see the promotion schedule they’ll be getting, for this comeback. Before practice they thought the schedule would be 3 weeks in Korea but being told they would be going on a world tour that was just the breaking point. Yes they all love their jobs and working and traveling but since it was around the holidays they just wanted to at least spend one at home. Does that seem like a rather selfish thing to think? Possibly but sometimes they just want to enjoy time the holidays at home with family instead of being at the dorm, or thousands of miles away in a different country.

Your pov

The call from Gio had given you enough information to find the people you were looking for. You searched through some databases, found aliases, car registrations and locations on their names. While most of the locations were hotels, and there was one rental house, the information had given you enough to go on.
Right now you were in the office room at their place, which has a huge map of the city. Since Suho wasn’t here you took it as your job to do all the planning. There were little red bulletins and lines distributed across the map, connecting places to names. Yellow was for location to location, green was for use of credit and debit cards. There were blue lines covering the car their gps tracks, which were a bitch to locate, but you’d managed. It might seem like they’d been sloppy, but the contrary is true. They actually hid their things pretty well. You were one of the best, along with Baekhyun it’d been easy to locate these things.
“Okay, so, what is this work of art?” Chanyeol asked, obviously stunned by your different approach from Suho’s. Which was what they were all used to.
Jongdae’s eyes held amusement, Jongin’s held wonder. Kyungsoo wasn’t with you, you’d told him sternly to stay home, take painkillers and rest his body. Whatever it was that had happened to him. You still had to ask Minseok about that, but this came first.

State of Westallen Reborn! Part Two

(This is a long one, guys…)

So let’s talk about all that stuff Barry kept saying. I’m fairly certain almost everything Barry said was from the pilot, which makes sense considering all the parallel scenes we saw during this episode. This tells me that (like Arrow) the season three finale was the ending of the first major arc of the show, and the beginning of season four (in a show designed to last six seasons) is a new beginning for everyone involved. I’m not super interested in analyzing the old lines; since I’m pretty sure they picked the ones that featured heavily in the pilot’s promotion and would be the ones people would remember. 

Originally posted by westallenhugs

So why would they choose old lines at all? I’m with pretty much everyone else who’s theorizing about this episode: Barry is reliving all the moments of his life at once since he existed in all moments in time while he’s in the Speed Force. What I’m interested in the two new lines he said when he was lucid:

“Nora shouldn’t be here.

Notice who he was looking at when he said that. The first time he looked between Iris and Joe, and the second time he looked behind him in Iris’ direction. So who’s Nora? Iris thought he was talking about his mom, but Barry’s never called his mom by her first name. 

Next is:

“Your Honor, I’m innocent: I didn’t kill anyone.”

That’s kind of a call back to a flash-forward in Season One, where we saw Barry in a uniform. At the time I assumed it was another universe, but apparently not? 

Next up is:

“We’re gonna need more diapers.”

The writer’s made absolutely fucking sure we remember that bit at least, because Cisco repeated it. If a character repeats something, that’s a big red sign saying that we need to pay attention to it (same goes for the Nora line) and it is that… WE’RE GETTING THE TORNADO TWINS!! 

Originally posted by allreactions

Here’s my prediction: Barry and Iris name their daughter Nora after Barry’s mom and their son will probably be named after somebody on Iris’ side of the family. I know people have been wanting for them to be named Dawn and Don like in the comics but that would be way too confusing on a live-adaptation the way it isn’t in print. I think then Nora will be present for Barry’s sentencing and Barry will be desperately trying to keep his children from seeing him in prison the way Henry tried to keep Barry from seeing him.

Originally posted by flashy-seabass-bender

(sidenote: if you value your emotional stability DO NOT but “barry allen crying” into the gif search)

But that’s just conjecture for now. I do think The Thinker will have something to do with Barry being in jail because that seems like the perfect plan for that kind of villain: framing Barry Allen for a murder (or murders) he didn’t commit and even though Barry’s the Flash, he has to stay in prison…somehow? However, it must be linked to the West-Allen kids somehow otherwise it makes no sense to bring up both of those new plot elements in foreshadow-y ways in the first episode of the season. This episode is all about planting seeds for a season-wide arc, and I’m interested in seeing where it goes from there.

Originally posted by danks-gif

The last bit of foreshadowing is all that crazy writing. First of all, it seemed to be a self-soothing mechanism for Barry. At the beginning of the episode, Barry seems to be using it to ground himself in the current moment. Every time he gets distracted from his writing, he’s able to retreat into some kind of memory until he gets hit with some kind of pain. He keeps repeating that something’s wrong with the stars, and then goes into a rhyming frenzy before he focuses on the writing again. 

Originally posted by barrysgifs

I think Caitlin was at least somewhat right about the whole “assigning different meanings to words” because he seemed to be trying to say something, some kind of warning even if he didn’t totally understand what it was. And then he goes on to write “This house is bitchin’” over and over again? 

I was ecstatic when that happened because (in case you didn’t know) that’s a classic line from Bart Allen, the second Kid Flash and a West-Allen grandson. He’s from the 30th century and has a habit of popping into timeline’s where he isn’t born yet. I remember one memorable episode of JLA where he accidentally spoiled Iris’ pregnancy. He’s super bubbly and enthusiastic and probably exactly what Barry would have been if his parents hadn’t been killed. Again, there is no reason to bring up an iconic line like that if Bart isn’t going to be showing up sometime this season. 

Originally posted by nimraenn

But then there’s the question: will he be the West-Allen grandson? Usually in the comics Wally West isn’t so close to Barry’s age, so he gets cast as Iris’ nephew rather than her brother. I’d put my money on Bart showing up and he’s the missing West-Allen son rather than grandson. Then you could have Nora be the child who stayed behind to help her mother through Barry’s trial while the headstrong Bart used his speedster powers to go back in time and stop his dad from going to prison in the first place. But since he’s brand-new at this, he went back too far and now has to live with the consequences of his action by living with his too-young parents for a while without ripping the continuum in half.  

In fact, it’d be fun for Wally to be the first one to realize Bart’s true identity, and he has to cover for Bart in order to keep the secret away from Barry and Iris. That way, Wally gets to be in a mentor role and to be part of a main storyline.
But again, that’s all conjecture for now. Let’s get back to the episode at hand.
Papa West was amazing, as per usual, and I really liked that he seems to be introducing the major thematic arc for this season: Faith versus Logic. This is especially poignant knowing that the Big Bad this season is the Thinker. 

However, I really want the theme to be more nuanced than just have faith in love or something. Once I get some more material from this season I’ll be able to say more, but I’m a little worried the writers have played their hand way too early. 

Originally posted by motleyquinn

But as it is it did my little Westallen heart good to see how far Barry will go to save Iris, and how much she trusts him. I have never felt more exhilarated than when I watched Barry break that glass and run faster than ever to save her.

Originally posted by shawnhollenbach

Then their true reunion is at their home. No couch scene, though, and combined with the final shot of Iris’ face it’s clear that the honeymoon hasn’t started yet. It didn’t slip past me that Barry seems kind of oblivious to how much Iris missed him in those months. I mean, I’d be pretty upset too if the love of my life disappeared with no warning for six months and then waltzed back in like he was at the fucking spa. 

Originally posted by crimsonlippedbeast

I know part of that was to help Barry get back into more of the sunnier personality he had in Season One since this season is going to be lighter in tone, and I’m glad that 4x02 will presumably get into that a little more. I’m a big fan of therapy and it seems like it’ll be one of the best subplots of the series.

So the question remains: why did Barry (a very sensitive and intuitive person) not really get how deeply Iris was hurting? Because I don’t think it was callousness on his part or bad writing (at least not until I see those therapy scenes for myself). I’ve talked before about Barry’s self-destructive tendencies – we saw them in full display in the Season Two finale when he created Flashpoint.

It gets hidden a lot by his personality and need to be a mediator, but I’m not sure that he’s ever really gotten over a sense of anger and worthlessness since being basically abandoned by his parents. He knows it wasn’t their fault, and he’s very happy to have Joe and Iris and now Wally, but there’s a reason that we like having emotionally damaged people as superheroes. You have to have a “save the world” instinct in you, and a self-sacrificial one too. I really think there’s a part of Barry, even he knows intellectually Iris loves him more than anything, who is absolutely at peace with the idea of dying before Iris does. He spent the entire past year terrified that he couldn’t save her, and he left for the Speed Force knowing he had. Barry never expected to come back, and maybe that’s what he meant when he said she’d always be Iris West-Allen. There’s a part of him who thought that Iris changed her name on the 2024 byline not because she married him, but because she would remember him. Maybe Wally was the Flash in 2024 because Barry knew he would be eventually. His race was over because he’d done his part. Even if it was only for a while, because he knew by leaving everyone would be safe.

 If I’m right, then it’s up to Iris to expect better of Barry. She’ll demand more of him than ever before, to be the Flash, to be her husband, to be the father of her children – and she’ll be right to do so. Iris will fight like hell to keep her family together, no matter what threatens to tear them apart. She’s watched Barry leave her so many times; the coma, Flashpoint, the Speed Force. If Iris being a leader means anything, it’ll be making sure Barry doesn’t walk away from her ever again.

Hi Neni. It may be a weird question but do you think, in Ryuji and Morgana's fight after Futaba's join, was Morgana's reaction exaggerated? I really want to like him but almost everyone seems to agree on it's unfair of him to take offense from Ryuji when he constantly treats Ryuji much worse.

Actually, I thought BOTH, Ryuji and Morgana were being absolute morons in that arc, except I found Ryuji even worse, because what he said about Morgana hit all of Morgana’s insecurities (which Ryuji already KNEW about), and not just in a nonchalant way (like Morgana’s teasing), but in a very blunt, striking, harsh way, that must have been like driving a wooden stake into the kitty’s heart.

I couldn’t help but keep comparing the whole thing to the interactions between Yosuke, Kanji and Teddie during P4, but even those never escalated as badly as this, and let me explain why: 

(What follows is a long rant about why Ryuji’s and Morgana’s relationship in that arc is beyond messed up, especially when compared to buddy-relationships in previous Persona games. Note that all of this is my opinion and if you disagree with me, okay. I don’t have a problem with people disagreeing with me. Nice? Nice.)
