although now that Fishy has brought it up, that’s an interesting idea: Old Ben gets cut down, wakes up on Tatooine. The closest town is Mos Espa and he’s short his supplies. Once inside, he finds a very familiar young face on the street…
Mads Mikkelsen and Ben Mendelsohn bromance in the collection of quotes:
- Who is most likely to brighten your day [on set]?
Ben: “I didn’t dream Mads would be as much fun as he is. I was intimidated by him… Yeah, I was. Mads is a great actor, he’s an incredible powerfull communicator of whatever feeling that he wants to tell you about. And he’s a joy to be around. I sang to him a lot.”
Mads: “I love him. There was never a dull moment on set with him. He’s just fucking mad - in the absolutely best meaning of the word. Talented, professional … and the opposite as well. He’s wonderful.”
- What was the best part of working on this film?
Ben: “The relationships we made.”
Mads: “So that was wonderful. I spent a lot of time with Ben and that was hilarious. He’s a very funny man and he makes the day just fly by.”
- What was your fave moment working on Rogue One?
Mads: “It must definitely be meeting this gentleman here, Ben Mendelsohn, who has the ability to switch off when they say ‘cut’ and start singing and dancing. And I love every second of it.”
Ben: “Probably my most fun day was working with Mads in Iceland. We had not met before, but very soon we were singing and dancing together. And then we went and got drunk. And then we were on… the cou…”
Mads: “[Grins.] Couch?”
Ben: “Yeah, drinking.”
Mads: “I spend a lot of time with Ben. He’s very hard not to love. So yes, that became very brotherly really fast for us.”
- If you were stranded on a desert island with one castmate, who would it be?
Mads: “Ben Mendelsohn. He’s hysterically funny. I would stay on a desert island with him for a couple of days… I’m sure he’d be man enough to provide me with food and water if I get injured.”
Ben: “Mads Mikkelsen. I would happily be stranded on a desert island with Mads.”
Mads: “Personally he’s one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. He can definitely keep up the energy on every set in the world.”
Ben: “He invented it, and I built it. And that’s the most exciting thing. And together we are the Death Star.”
- Choose between: ‘I love you’ and 'I know’.
Ben: “I love you.”
Mads: “I know.”
- How about you two being the next same-sex couple in the Star Wars universe?
Ben: “Well, we do have a dyed-in-the-wool bromance. But the next? Only if they go back and do an heroic retelling.”
if ur still doing that ship thing what abt bean plant x reader !!
who hogs the duvet: Ben, but 99% of the time Y/N and Ben are curled up together, so it’s not a big deal.
who texts/rings to check how their day is going: Y/N. She often sends Ben photos of her art students complete with hilarious captions.
who’s the most creative when it comes to gifts: Y/N. She’s an art teacher, and she makes every present she gives Ben.
who gets up first in the morning: Ben, but only by like 10-15 minutes. Y/N has to be at school by 8:15, so Ben wakes up before her so he can make sure she doesn’t forget anything.
who suggests new things in bed: Y/N. She likes to experiment with different things, and sometimes Ben reeaaally enjoys it. Sometimes, not so much.
who cries at movies: Y/N. Because Ben bottles up all his emotions so his performance as Evan is more convincing, he just comforts Y/N the entire time.
who gives unprompted massages: Ben. He knows how much Y/N’s students can annoy her, so he makes sure that she doesn’t go to bed tense.
who fusses over the other when they’re sick: Ben. He loves Y/N so much, and he hates seeing her unable to do anything other than complain about being sick.
who gets jealous easiest: Ben. He loves Y/N more than anything, but sometimes he gets doubts. Those doubts most often appear in the form of jealousy.
who has the most embarrassing taste in music: Y/N. Ben once caught her listening to Nickelback. A small part of him died that day.
who collects something unusual: Y/N. She collects Pop Vinyls, and they have an entire bookshelf full of them.
who takes the longest to get ready: Ben. He loves to sing in the shower. As much as Y/N loves his voice, she loves getting to work on time and not getting fired even more.
who is the most tidy and organised: Y/N. She’s a teacher, so she has to be organised otherwise she just collapses into hell. So. Much. Grading.
who gets most excited about the holidays: Ben. He’s the most extra Jew, honestly, and he goes all out for all the holidays. Y/N thinks it’s the most adorable thing.
who is the big spoon/little spoon: Ben is definitely the big spoon. He consistently has late nights, and he’s always super tired when he gets home. Getting to cuddle Y/N and play with her hair is the highlight of his night. Unless Beyoncé came to the show.
who gets most competitive when playing games and/or sports: Y/N is insanely competitive. Ben brought her along to the DEH couples trivia night, and he had never seen her more focused/aggressive.
who starts the most arguments: Ben, but it’s normally about Y/N getting paint over everything. Y/N just blames her students for it. She blames her students for everything.
who suggests that they buy a pet: Y/N. She wants a golden retriever, but Ben reminds her that they live in an apartment in New York City. He then buys her a pug puppy instead, and Y/N just throws herself at Ben and wraps him in the most violent hug.
what couple traditions they have: They go to the cinema every two weeks, because their first date was to go see The Fault In Our Stars.
what tv shows they watch together: They definitely watch Grey’s Anatomy together. I reckon they started watching Orange Is The New Black, but Ben really didn’t like it or get it. (Y/N did, and she watches it religiously. Without Ben.)
what other couple they hang out with: Kristolyn and her boyfriend. They get lunch together every week, and Y/N just adores talking to Kristolyn. Sometimes Ben feels left out.
how they spend time together as a couple: They go shopping together. Ben actually likes it, and Y/N loves mocking a lot of the clothes in the shops. “Why pay $50 for half a shirt? Just buy a $5 shirt at Target and cut it in half. It’s the same thing!”
who made the first move: Y/N. She was hired to help out with early stage design concepts for DEH, and she did a quick sketch of Ben complete with the words ‘you’re really hot, and I really like you. You wanna go out?’ Ben still has that drawing (he got it framed.)
who brings flowers home: Ben. He always gets Y/N roses every Friday so she can see them when she gets home from work.
who is the best cook: Y/N. Her mom taught her a whole bunch of recipes and put them in a cookbook. Ben is in love with pretty much all of them.
You said you liked muscles, right? I know you usually get asked with bellies, but do you have any buff muscle head canons? If you do, let's go with Rin from Free, Ben Tennyson, and the twins from Ouran. (If you feel like you can't give a LONG explanation, then can it be a short list of what you'd want to see?)
Okay I can give these a shot though this is really out my wheelhouse and I’m not 100% sure you’re wanting. This could take some different routes with some of them especially because of differences in their states (Rin already has noticeable but Ben and the Twins don’t as much).
(As a weightlifter who at least TRIES to have good form unless there is a swimmers technique that I’m not aware of this is the single most frustrating and annoying gif in all of Free. He’s pumping his legs and is cheating to get more reps but no actual tension on the pull up so he’s not actually working toward failure. If he needed to go for more reps they have assistance bands for that to help him.)
(At least this one seems to be with better form. Admittedly we don’t see his legs, but he’s properly holding for a split second at the top of the contraction. If he holds it there it can help build strength and muscle size)
(but oh my look at the separation of the head of the bicep. Beautiful)
Okay I’m not 100% sure where to start out with a muscle canon on Rin since there’s a long history. I’m sure part of it has to do with his desire to be like his dad and Gou is a factor as well. It’s hard to say if his working out came first, if she was influenced by her dad, or if Gou’s muscle kink has helped to push Rin on his muscle. One way or another, Rin’s love of muscle and trying to push himself has long been ingrained in him. The one difference with Rin is because he’s a swimmer is while he can get bigger and stronger, he has to be proportioned a particular way. He may get slightly bigger but he’ll always stay proportioned right.
While the gif may prove me wrong, I think that Rin would be a lot like Rei and want to make sure he’s doing things correctly and making sure he’s doing things with the proper form and with a focus on improving mobility. Especially once he knows and they try to fix Sousuke’s shoulder (which is a thing I understand well let me tell you that) they will both want to increase range of motion and reduce injury as well. He’s going to do it right and be smart about it
But I think Rin’s love of muscle would manifest early, probably at least in the end of junior high. He’d love seeing himself go faster, stronger, and seeing his muscles grow. I could see Gou helping (or forcing) Rin to measure his muscles to see if he’s gaining muscle and which things he need to work on. This also leads into why he’s more well proportioned. I think he’s more overall better shape when Makoto has a better back and according to @dumdumdrawstumtums a Hank Hill butt, but Rin is more well rounded. It is possible because he started to work out earlier than Sousuke and Makoto that Rin isn’t as tall as them (it can be possible that working out with too much weight too early can stunt growth which could explain me compared to others but I have never seen real studies on this, just older books I’ve read so could totally be a myth) but he’s going to have much higher flexibility (as evidenced by his tumblr rep as a stripper)
I do think that Rin likes to subtly show off his muscle by wearing tight clothes or revealing clothing. I also think with him liking muscle and probably always working towards putting on muscle and increasing strength as long as it doesn’t slow down his swimming since that’s his ultimate goal for now. I can definitely see Rin loving growing out of clothes when his arms are too tight for the sleeves or his shirt starts to ride up his back if he flexes too much or his chest when he moves makes his shirt bunch up or it starts to pinch around armpit. Once he loosens up I could see Rin putting on a display for Sousuke or Momo and Nitori (and they would all react differently if heaven forbid he actually tore a shirt). He might be convinced to flex in front of the team, and I halfway believe that they could teach the team more about anatomy by just having Rin pose in a swimsuit.
I think that there is definitely a possibility in the future especially after he’s done with swimming that Rin could turn professional model and could be someone that will end up on magazine covers or even do like physique competitions. I also think as he got older, he might try to develop his upper body a bit more so he will have a much more defined V shape (though he’s definitely not bad now) Do I still think Rin is an eater? ABSOLUTELY. My favorite is he’s a hard gainer so is having to constantly eat. He may try the technique of intermittent fasting where he only eats within a certain window or even just one big meal, but I like to think that he’s the type that would love to both have a great eating capacity but have the great bod to match.
One last thing though, is I think that if Rin knows you’re into him and muscle, he’s REALLY going to torture you and he’ll love it. He’d be the type that would throw an arm around Momo and make sure to subtly flex his bicep or squat so you see his butt or flex his back or SOMETHING to tease you about it. Even do something like flex his obliques or let his tank top strap fall off his shoulder to show off his shoulder or his pec or heck I even see him lifting up his shirt to flex his abs and even do the wave with them (I actually think he has a lot of muscle control there so he could even pretend to bloat out if he wanted or do the vacuum). He’s a doof that will exploit you if he knows your weakness is him.
Now Ben Tennyson is another interesting one because we KNOW for a fact that he grows into this:
Though I personally really hope he reconsiders on that facial hair.
But at some point he really does start to workout. Again I like to think he’s hard gainer and has to eat a ton to be able to put on mass but that’s a different canon (that I’ve already written lol). For Ben, I think that that basically comes out of the decision that he needs to get stronger and he’s constantly fighting. So he would have a much more different kind of ton and strength because it would be fighting based muscles but I do think between high school and college that Ben would really start to hit the gym both with weights and probably like agility training. Mostly likely with Kevin (RIP attractive buff Kevin) being his trainer/spotter. I could see them both spending time at the gym together and Kevin really helping Ben to push his limits and watch his form so he would improve quickly.
I think that with that kind of training and his eating habits, that Ben would bulk up very quickly with beginner gains and probably keep it up the whole time. Also like Rin I think he’d be one that would LOVE to show off his muscle once he starts. First his leather jacket would start to get tight, then his tshirts and I think Ben would LOVE to have his sleeves rip or bulge out. I could see him being the type that would wear a tight V neck tshirt and then love to bounce his pecs if someone was interested. Or really if Ben was just being really bad at flirting. Same with raising his shirt to show his abs or just finding an excuse to take off his shirt. Once he gets big enough, he would just peel it off for no real reason other than “comfort” and freedom of movement.
Ben would be the type that would try to strike poses when he was trying to show off and may even do it during battle if he thought someone was looking. I also imagine that he’d love to go swimming a lot more and like relax from a battle in a sauna or jacuzzi. Rook would have a lot of mixed feelings about this because it was a gratuitous display but he’s also probably really like being able to watch himself.
Honestly as long as he kept his mobility up, I really do think that Ben would be more likely to to get into legit bodybuilding probably thanks to Kevin’s influence. Maybe not enough to do anything competitive but he’d really like to have the power trip and know he’s looking good. I also think he did it on the added idea that the stronger his human body is, the stronger that the rest of his forms are so it is actually better for him to bulk up. But then I also had the strange thought of Ben doing a swimsuit calendar for the entire galaxy that will sell like hotcakes.
The Hitachiin twins would be an interesting bunch. If muscle captured their attention long enough they could be really interesting. Only problem is I could see them being fickle. HOWEVER that could be applied to them doing different types of work outs or sports so they are always showing off on what they are doing.
I have the feeling that if either Haruhi showed interest in muscle (which I have no problem with there) or a subset of the clientele had a muscle fetish, I think the pair would pounce on it. and by that I mean literally do it as part of the club. The twins would probably set up a gym in the corner of the club and workout for everyone, most likely shirtless just to show off to everyone.
You know that the pair would tease everyone too by doing something like “Hikaru, don’t you think my bicep is bigger?” “No Kaoru, don’t think my tricep is better defined?” “Well my delts are bigger!” “Oh yeah? My calves are AMAZING!” “What do you think Haruhi?” “Yeah what do you think?” *poses in front of all the girls and Haruhi to try to get attention.* This doesn’t include when they start to come on to each other either.
Then they would always play the switching game so they would probably stay roughly the same size, though Haruhi would always be able to tell the difference and even point out some subtle muscle differences. I think once they got big enough it’s very likely that they would end up being a feature of the club and have some sort of muscle posing contest potentially only in colored posing trunks.
They would definitely flirt more with their bodies and they would put flexing as part of their hosting time. I could see if they got strong enough that they would lift or bench press some of the girls or pull them up by lifting their arms. I also think they would give lots of piggy back rides and flatter the girls saying how they weren’t heavy at all but everyone would love it because they would get to touch their broad muscular backs. Generally I think they would have some fun showing off their strength and fitting into form fitting clothes. I don’t think they would get SUPER buff, again more fitness model size but everything would be tailored to fit them really well. So everything would show off their figure and be a general tease. They most likely are going to have to have the type of pants that have some sort of elastic in them so that they can sit without having to tear the seat of their pants.
I also think that they would end up taking votes on which muscle group they should work on that day when they worked out in front of everyone. I think they would love to tease Tamaki with their muscle and he probably end up getting a personal trainer of his own too. But even then, they would flex right in front of Tamaki. I could see them sitting really close to him (like they were that in that RottenHeart pic with their bellies) and let their big shoulders muscles just be right there. And then probably pec bounce right in front of him just to get him flustered.
Prompt: Can you do an imagine, where you are Ben Affleck sister, and you are married to Henry. You are an actress and you are doing an interview with Henry and Ben and your and henry’s daughter join you three in the middle of the interview?
I was actually the only one who was happy when RomanceGate happened. It makes total sense, they are going to set the romance up for later and have Rey and Ben spend time with each other, get to understand one another a little bit before it happens, it couldn't happen directly after he just murdered his father and reached a personal low point. Since we know that it's impossible to have a romance so early for Reylo, it would have been disturbing if Rian said otherwise, bc it wouldn't involve Kylo.
Yes, I think these are good points. While I still don’t think that we can take Reylo for granted, I believe it makes perfect sense that full-blown romance is put on hold while the characters are moved into the right position for that to happen later on.
I must say that I’m reminded of Letter Never Sent, which is one of the movies Rian cited as an influence on Episode VIII. There is no central romance as such in Letter Never Sent, and what romance there is is either taken for granted (the acknowledged couple of Tanya and Andrei) or left suppressed, simmering and unspoken (Sergei’s unrequited love for Tanya).
While I don’t expect TLJ to mimic either of those dynamics one for one (particularly because Rian seems to have pointed away from there being an unrequited romance in his film), I do think Rian could easily be taking lessons from how Letter Never Sent is infused with emotion, attraction and longing without ever making romance a focal point.

Imagine your Dads, Rafael and Sonny, getting protective when they find out you’re going on your first date
Imagine your Dads, Rafael and Sonny, getting protective when they find out you’re going on your first date
There were three times in your entire life that you knew of where you had rendered your Dad speechless.
The first time was when you said your first word which was ‘Dada’. You think it meant so much to him because he barely got to spend any time with you at that point and it just reminded him that his world wasn’t centered around work anymore, it was centered on you. Or least that was Sonny thought. Your Dad denied it profusely. The second time was when you beat him in an argument for the first time when you were ten. He had no argument for the point you had made. He just stormed off angrily and he was annoyed about it for at least a week afterward.
The third time was when you mentioned maybe too casually that you were going on your first date.
“I’m sorry…what did you just say?” Your Dad finally spluttered after two minutes of confused expressions and breathing in as if he was going to start talking but stopping himself.
“I said,” You began, shooting Sonny was sitting and watching from the couch a confused look, “I can’t watch movies with you and Sonny this Saturday because I have a date.”
So it took me a bit to figure out what his job would be. Since I believe Hikaru and Ben are good parents, and since Hikaru is normally gone on missions (AKA the five-year mission), Ben would spend as much time as he could with Demora.
I figured a waiting job would offer decent hours for him while she was at school. Then he’d pick her up and they’d have fun times :)
Some Finnreylo Headcanons Because This Ship Deserves More
-Rey got used to the heat on Jakku but never the frigid nights. They always sleep with Rey in the middle so Finn and Ben can keep her warm.
-Finn is the biggest cuddler. He’s always the one to suggest to Rey and Ben that they should snuggle.
-Ben does all the cooking, for obvious reasons, but Rey is eager to learn from him. Finn begs her just to let Ben cook.
-Rey and Ben argue through the Force bond a lot. It drives Finn nuts. He can never tell the difference between a silent argument and the silent treatment.
- The first child they have is a daughter, with Finn as the biological father. The second child they have is Ben’s biological son.
-The daughter ends up being Force-sensitive while the son isn’t. As a result the girl spends a lot of time training with Ben, while the boy takes up shooting with Finn.
-Poe is of course the godfather. He also played the role of couples counselor for Rey, Finn, and Ben. He likes being a godfather way more.
- Ben doesn’t want to be sorted into Slytherin because his mother was; he wants to be in Gryffindor like his grandfather was but he’s inevitably sorted into Slytherin
- Hux is in the same year as him and is in Slytherin too and they immediately take a dislike to each other so THEREFORE they spend all their time together
- Ben struggles with having visions of Voldemort because Anakin was a loyal follower of the Dark Lord before he turned against him to save his children and was killed, but Luke and Leia lived and brought Voldemort down but he wasn’t killed, and now he’s back and reaching out to Ben to try and tempt him over to join the Death Eaters
- Brendol Hux & Maratelle Hux, Hux’s parents, are both Death Eaters and get excited when Armitage tells them that he’s befriended a boy named Ben Solo but Armitage doesn’t know of his parent’s alignment to Voldemort
- Hux’s favourite subject is Potions & Charms, whereas Ben takes a liking to Defence Against The Dark Arts and is a brilliant on a broom…but they’re both competitive when it comes to their flying!
- They both make the quidditch team too! Hux is a chaser and Ben is the beater, and everyone is amazed because they have an amazing chemistry between them and always seem to know what the other is planning
- Even in the common room, Hux has trouble sleeping anyway but Ben has nightmares so they stay up together a lot, drinking hot cocoa and practising spells with each other
- But as the school years pass, Ben becomes more and more corrupt, wanting to practice darker spells and eventually wants to be called ‘Kylo Ren’ and joins a group of Slytherin students that call themselves the Knights Of Ren and it’s rumoured that they’ve got affiliations with real Death Eaters and want to serve the Dark Lord himself
- Hux’s parents eventually tell him about the Skywalker family and how Ben’s grandfather was a powerful wizard, and Hux knows that Ben is headed for the same fate as Anakin: to be killed by the Dark Lord once his usefulness wears out
- Hux doesn’t know what to do, betray his family and save Ben or follow Ben into the dark and become more powerful than any wizard has before
Thanks to Ben and Alli, we know that Ben was present last night at yet another bearding stunt. And I will say, subtle but brilliant use of social media (I am fully convinced that Ben and Darren are working together and have been for quite some time- the common goal is huge):
Now remember, we only see what they want us to see. Further, Darren and Von Beard are not selling their fake relationship to Alan and Friends. They are selling it to the General Audience.
So ask yourself, how many times has Ben been present over the past two years? I am willing to bet MANY MANY TIMES. They can sell the stunt but Darren and Beardy don’t actually have to spend time together.
And if we can conclude that Ben is present more often than not. Now we have the really interesting question. How often is Chris present? Last night for instance. I doubt there are many in that room who are not aware of the truth. Remember we only see what they want us to see. I am not at all saying he was present last night, there is no evidence to suggest that. But I am not ruling out the possibility. Or that Chris Ninja Colfer has been present many many times are these events. I’ve always say they are together a lot more than people think. And in Hollywood, they are, to an extent, safe.
