okay listen dude i just. my mind is continually BLOWN by the realization that the entire sequences of events in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story; everything that happens, the future of the rebellion as it is hinged on the off-chance that an anxious shaky cargo pilot wouldn’t give up or get caught or turn himself in or die or totally blow it immediately??? think about that for a second just consider it w o w BODHI ROOK WAS THAT ONE LITTLE FRAGILE PIECE WOBBLING ON THE EDGE AND THEN HE MADE THE CHOICES HE DID
there’s something gutwrenchingly beautiful and true to an entire series of incredible events resting in the trembling hands of one ordinary, uncertain, seemingly unqualified man, a man who then chooses to take those uncertain steps forward and makes himself so heroic is that not the freaking tightest ish you’ve ever heard because dang son
His eyes cracked open blearily when he heard Morgan’s fearful squeaks down below. He felt the blankets being tugged to the side, having exposed his arm to the chilly night air and woken him.
He glanced over, finding you fast asleep and completely oblivious to the tiny child trying desperately to get your attention. With a soft sigh, he rubbed the sleep from his eyes, gave a tired yawn, and peered over the edge of your side of the bed.
“Morgan, isn’t it a little late for you to be up?” He said as quietly as he could. Morgan’s head snapped up, revealing big, hot tears in Morgan’s eyes that perfectly mirrored his mother’s. Chrom felt a twinge of concern, waking up quickly. “Why are you crying?”
“I had-” He hiccuped, shaking like a leaf, “I-I had a…a bad dream, Papa.”
Y/N: WHAT IF PIETRO DIED BECAUSE THE DIRECTOR NEEDED SOMETHING TO SHOCK THE VIEWERS? WHY DID HE DIE? I’VE BEEN THINKING, HE COULD HAVE JUST CAUGHT ALL THE DAMN BULLETS ARE YOU KIDDING ME
Tony: WHAT IF YOU CALM DOWN FOR A SECOND?!
Tony: We are real.
Clint: Stop spending so much time with Wade. He’s not good for you.
Y/N: But Wade has a point!
Y/N: I swear… When I helped Wade track down Francis, at one point I saw words floating in the air… Subtitles? Credits?
Clint: Y/N, SNAP OUT OF IT. WE. ARE. REAL.
Y/N: OMG WHAT IF THIS IS FANFICTION LIKE THE TYPE I READ ON TUMBLR
Tony: You have Tumblr? What’s your blog? I’ll follow you.
Clint: WHO DO THE TUMBLR PEOPLE SHIP ME WITH
Y/N: Oh my god. I… Am… Different people? DEPENDING ON WHO’S READING
Tony has added Wade.
Tony: WHAT DID YOU DO TO Y/N?! THEY’RE BROKEN!
Wade: I just revealed the truth. Helped them realize. Hello, readers. How are you? Looking beautiful as always.
Clint: I’m starting to see it too…
Tony: See what?!
Clint: I HAVE NO BODY I AM JUST WORDS
Wade: I once had no body. When I blew myself up.
Y/N: AT LEAST YOU’RE ONE PERSON
Wade: Ohhhh this is great. Why didn’t I do this sooner?
Nat has joined the chat.
Nat: Why is Clint panicking? I can’t understand what he’s saying.
Y/N: WE’RE NOT REAL
Y/N: THIS EXPLAINS WHY CLINT HAS A FARM!
Clint: WHERE IS MY FARM ALL I SEE IS WORDS AND SOMEONE LOOKING AT ME FROM ABOVE WHO ARE YOU
Clint: They’re kinda cute.
Wade: Kinda? No. VERY cute.
Y/N: THAT’S ME
Tony: Nat, get them to calm down.
Tony: Wade, FIX THIS.
Tony has added Bruce.
Tony: Please get a sedative for Clint and Y/N.
Bruce: Fourth wall breaking? I thought it was a myth!
Wade: I am living proof. I have been trying to show you people but do you ever listen to me?
Bruce: This is amazing! My theory is true, then!
Tony: Oh not you too.
Nat: Clint is lying on the floor. I don’t know what to do. He won’t calm down. It’s like he can’t see anything but his phone.
Y/N: Who am I? WHY IS MY NAME Y/N?
Clint: IS IT PRONOUNCED “YIN” OR “WHY SLASH EN???!?” WHAT DO I CALL YOU
Y/N: WHAT DO I CALL MYSELF
Tony: Wade. I am going to kill you.
Bruce: He can’t die.
Bruce: But if what’s happening is true, I’ll just ask the author to kill him.
Wade: I’ll just ask Clint to kill you.
Bruce: Clint can’t kill me nor would he even try.
Wade: Hahahahahaahahaahahahahahahahaha good one.
Wade has left the chat.
Clint: I see so many capitalized words. This is hell.
Clint: I hear music WHERE IS IT COMING FROM
Y/N: Don’t worry, it’s just the Author listening to music while typing this.
Nat: I can hear music too…
Tony: nO NOT YOU TOO NAT
Bruce: I must document everything! THIS IS SO EXCITING!
Tony: Bruce. Brucie. Our green rage monster. Can you fangirl over science another time?
Bruce: I’m sorry Tony, but this is so rare! Who knows when this will be requested again?
Bruce: Interesting. You’re unaffected. Either the Author chose this or your big ego is serving as a wall against it.
Bruce: It’s true though.
Nat: Why is my name Nat in all the chats?!
Y/N: WELCOME TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FOURTH WALL. WE HAVE CONFUSION
Clint: WHY IS NAT TAKING THIS BETTER THAN ME
Nat has changed Nat to Natasha.
Y/N: WHAT HAVE YOU DONE
Steve has joined the chat.
Steve: What’s going on? I’m seeing floating words… Sam is talking to someone called the Reader?
Bruce: Interesting. The more Nat, Clint and Y/N notice and change things, the more the “fourth wall” breaks. Soon our world will cease to be. All will be left is the Chat and our painful awareness of it.
Tony: Can we stop it?!
Bruce: I don’t know… This is different from what Wade experiences. He’s aware but this is… something else.
Y/N: WHY WAS I NOT IN THE CIVIL WAR MOVIE?!? RUDE
Pietro has joined the chat.
Pietro: I feel you.
Pietro has left the chat.
Natasha: Wait… If Pietro died… How is he alive now?
Clint: Avengers Chatroom: Inquisitive. He was resurrected there with no mention of how. Ever since then he’s been appearing even though the chats aren’t connected aside for some references.
Bruce: AMAzing YES CLINT TELL ME MORE
Clint: what the… Calm down.
Bruce: Sorry… I’m just so excited! You’re entering the other chats!
Bucky has joined the chat.
Bucky: Why am I not paired with Y/N?
Steve: This is a crackfic gone wrong.
Y/N: DO YOU READ FANFICTION, STEVE
Tony: Can you all just STOP TALKING AND LET ME THINK?! Do any of you not understand how bad this is?! We need to fix it!
Y/N: you know what’s weird?
Y/N: Soon we’ll have two Sherlocks. Tony is one as he’s played by RDJ. Benedict is going to be Dr. Strange. Maybe then the mystery of WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO PEPPER POTTS can finally be solved.
Tony has added Thor, Vision.
Tony: Are you two being effected by the fourth wall breaking?
Vision: No. Everything is normal for us.
Thor: We are too mighty to be effected.
Natasha: Or maybe you’re just not worthy.
Thor: We are worthy!
Y/N: … Do you think we can change the plot to make ourselves be worthy now?
Natasha: Exactly what I was thinking!
Thor: NO LADY NATASHA, GIVE ME BACK MJOLNIR!
Natasha: NO, THE AUTHOR DEEMS ME WORTHY!
Tony: Can I be worthy too?
Natasha: Farewell, I’m off to rule Asgard!
Thor: LADY NATASHA PLEASE
Thor: DO NOT DO THIS
Natasha: I’m kidding, Thor.
Thor: I knew that…
Y/N: No you didn’t.
Tony: Vision, any ideas on how we can stop this?
Vision: Perhaps we contact this Author that everyone is mentioning?
Tony: Right, but how?
Vision: I have an idea. I will tell you in person.
Bucky: DON’T TAKE AWAY OUR FUN
Tony: What fun?! Clint almost lost his mind! Our world is breaking apart, or at least for you guys. Those of us who aren’t experiencing this will be fine. Do you want me to leave you as just a pile of words?! And of course, our dear Captain isn’t doing anything about this. Just leave it to one of the geniuses to solve, right?
Steve: Dang, Tony. You really need to calm down.
Tony: I AM CALM
Y/N: Dang son!
Clint: Dang, language!
Y/N: Dang, I can do this all day!
Clint: He’s my friend, dang!
Y/N: Well dang, it’s been a long day.
Clint: Dang, Bucky?!
Natasha: You know… If Bucky wasn’t wearing his goggles when I shot him, he would have died.
Steve: It’s a good thing Hydra takes fashion so seriously.
Bucky: I thought they dressed me like that to hide my identity and for protection?
Natasha: You looked like you were modelling!
Steve: That walk…
Natasha: And the hair!
Y/N: another movie I was not in!
Clint: Me too :(
Tony has added The Author.
Tony: Hi there. Please fix this.
The Author: Nah
The Author: Kidding! The chat’s not over YET though so in a bit.
Tony: Wait, prove that you’re actually “the author”!
The Author: … How?
Tony: OH YOU KNOW HOW
Y/N: What is happening nOW
Natasha: Good question.
Bruce: I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU ACTUALLY BROUGHT THE AUTHOR HERE, TONY. HOW DID YOU MANAGE THIS?!
Tony: I’m waiting.
The Author: I’m sorry, Steve.
Steve: My name is Steven Grant Rogers and I sometimes watch Bucky while he sleeps. He looks so peaceful. Safe. I tear up. Every time. My precious Bucky.
Bucky: WHAT IS THIS
Natasha: Not surprising.
Thor: I am shocked…
Steve: MY SERUM BRINGS ALL THE HYDRA TO THE BASE AND THEY’RE LIKE, DANG
Mission Report: December 16th, 1991.
Vision: … I think I heard Wanda calling me.
Vision has left the chat.
Steve: Please, no more!
The Author: BLAME TONY
Tony: … MORE MORE MORE!
Steve: ONE TIME WHEN NATASHA WASN’T AROUND I PRETENDED TO BE HER JUST TO FEEL WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE SUCH A BADASS BUT THEN BRUCE WALKED IN AND I JUST WHISPERED… “HEY BIG GUY.” I WAS TOO IN CHARACTER. IT WAS TOO LATE. I HAD SAID IT. AND WINKED.
Y/N: DANG STEVE
The Author: And you’re very out of character now.
Natasha: I’m going to pretend none of this happened.
Bucky: With you on that.
Bucky has left the chat.
Natasha has left the chat.
Bruce: The hulk is suffering from second hand embarrassment.
Bruce has left the chat.
Thor: Steve… Did you really do that?
Steve: Of course not! I’m being controlled to say all of this.
Tony: I think that’s enough now, thank you. You’ve made my life. I can die in peace.
Tony: Can you fix this now?
The Author: It’s fixed.
Tony: it was that easy, really?!
The Author: I AM The Author.
Steve: Are you sure you’re a genius, Tony?
Y/N: DANG STEVE
The Author: DANG STEVE
Clint: DANG STEVE
Steve: REALLY? THE AUTHOR TOO?!
The Author: ily
The Author: What?
Clint: Can I name the chat?!
Tony: No! I want to name it, “Tony Stark Is Amazing and Hot.”
Steve: Why don’t we let the reader name it?
The Author: Good idea. What would you like to name it?
Clint: Why can’t I name it?
Steve: We all know why.
The Author: Well, dang. I should go. This turned out crazier than expected. Thank you for reading. I think you’re wonderful. ily <3. Bye!
The Author has left the chat.
Clint: Let’s go abuse our fourth wall breaking power before we lose it!
Y/N: Good idea!
Steve: No! That is a bad idea!
Clint: WHAT WAS THAT STEVE? WE CAN’T HEAR YOU
Steve: YOU ARE READING THIS
Clint: I’M DEAF
Clint has left the chat.
Y/N has left the chat.
Steve has left the chat.
Tony: This will be fun to witness.
Tony has left the chat.
Thor: What is going on with these midgardians?
Thor has left the chat.
Sam has joined the chat.
Sam has added Wanda, Scott, T’Challa, Peter.
Sam: I told you! I was right.
Wanda: This explains why Clint and Y/N were acting so strange.
T’Challa: But aren’t you, Y/N?
T’Challa: No. Not you.
Peter: So if they’re Y/N… Can we just address them as Y/N to make it easier?
Scott: Can I just say, Y/N, it is so great to finally meet you!
Scott: Even though I can’t actually meet you, there’s a screen separating us.
Scott: But it is an honor.
Scott: I think you’re a lovely person.
Sam: Man, stop fangirling. You’re going to scare them away! But yeah, we think you’re pretty amazing.
Wanda: I think I love you? Is that too much?
T’Challa: No, she means the reader.
T’Challa: You are always welcome to Wakanda if you can find a way to come to this side.
Peter: Are you smiling? I hope you are.
Scott: STOP FLIRTING THEY COULD BE OLDER THAN YOU
Peter: I’m not flirting! They just have a really beautiful smile!
Wanda: We should go now.
T’Challa: I agree. We hope you have a lovely day… Or night. This is really confusing to me.
idk if anyone has already pointed this out, but in case they haven’t, a little bit of info for your consideration because i know a lot of people were wondering about troll lifespans and the time scale of trollhunters.
My husband and I are starting to read more books together (he’s seriously the best, it’s like having a great audiobook narrator on your couch with you, I’m so spoiled). He decided to share the Revenge of the Sith novelization with me, and l’m pretty furious. Because it’s really, really good. Like WAY better than the movie.
I like the prequels, flawed and often painful as they are, but hearing and reading this masterpiece, I’m livid that we got the film as it is. If this is what it could have been, how did we end up with what we did? Like, it makes SO much more sense, and feels more organic, and Anakin’s fall doesn’t come out of the blue, and it’s not half so whiny and annoying, and it all makes sense did I mention it makes sense finally? The characterizations are thorough, Obi-wan is shown to be deeply feeling, Brand-new Vader is terrifyingly sassy (”We were promised a handsome reward!” “I am your reward. Do you not find me handsome?” Like DANG SON).
Some highlights of things you get from this book:
-Dooku is a clinical sociopath
-Yoda actually admitted the fault of the Jedi order–that they were too rigid, and hadn’t changed while the Sith had, and that was their downfall, that they were too invested in the Old Ways. He admits that Sidious was, in part, correct, which also admits that the Jedi had, indeed, failed Anakin to a certain extent as he said.
-Anakin’s transition to Vader, which is shown to be a literal psychological transition. Anakin actually isn’t in control anymore, there’s a new being inhabiting him called Vader. Once Anakin decides to leave the Jedi and become Sith, the being known as Anakin ceases to exist and Vader is born. Anakin is killed, and Vader takes his place; so yes, Old Obi-wan was right.
-C3PO actually has anxiety. Clinical anxiety. His ‘threat aversion subroutines’ get in the way of him doing things, even normal things, because they try to override his actions.
-Obi-wan dresses up like a drunken bum with Yoda wrapped up like and impersonating a baby in order to infiltrate the fallen Temple.
-Stunning time-out style writing (transitions into present tense to slow down time and let you emotionally and mentally explore a moment), well-paced action, painful and beautiful foreshadowing, perfectly interwoven introspection, incredible and subtle themes of love and hope, and beautiful metaphors and call-backs. I like this author, we’re actually going to look up more of his stuff in the library because let me tell you, it is AMAZING.
-Obi-wan is deathly allergic to space miso soup and almost triggered an interplanetary incident because he didn’t know and drank it while on a diplomatic mission.
Marty: Look, a dead
body. Dang Rust we sure got some sick son-of-a-bitches round here
Rust: That’s the thing about people Marty *lights cigarette*
you’re only as sick as society thinks you are. Shit, one man’s sick son-of-a-
bitch can be another man’s holy prophet *lights three other cigarettes at the
same time*. It’s all about perspective Marty *puts cigarettes in both his ears
and lights them*.
