anonymous asked:

tell us why perfect by ed sheeran is about phan

perfect is easily one of the most romantic ballads since thinking out loud and ed has even said that he views it an outperformance in comparison to thinking out loud, which is interesting in this context considering how relevant thinking out loud is to everyone who remembers what happened at the 2015 brit awards. it was quite an iconic moment and it’s something people still talk about, so it’s especially intriguing that the song perfect is directly connected to it and treated as somewhat of a sequel

it also happens to describe dan and phil’s history together from past to present very accurately

honestly, i don’t listen to ed sheeran’s music regularly and although the lyrics aren’t the deepest or the most unconventional, i’ve been itching to write down some thoughts

[listen to the song here to set the mood]

[Verse 1]

I found a love for me

Darling, just dive right in and follow my lead

Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet

Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me

we’ll start right off with the first four lines in verse 1, which i believe are being sung from phil’s perspective (however, the perspectives are subjective and can change throughout the song) these lyrics mirror the start of dan and phil’s relationship. phil was generally more mature when him and dan first started talking, age wise and experience wise. phil could’ve technically been considered an adult while dan was still very young and inexperienced, hence why “Darling, just dive right in and follow my lead” is so fitting here. dan and phil were both very quick to love and didn’t think so much about the consequences of their decision to trust each other so quickly. phil quite literally invited dan to dive right in and follow his lead, professionally and personally. the last line can be used to describe just how unexpected it must’ve been for phil when dan came along. early on, dan’s main priority was waiting. waiting for phil’s responses on twitter. waiting for phil’s dm’s. waiting for phil’s texts. waiting for those 5 hour skype calls with phil. waiting to meet phil. only until later on did phil realize that dan was the someone for him

‘Cause we were just kids when we fell in love

Not knowing what it was

I will not give you up this time

But darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own

And in your eyes, you’re holding mine

in the second half of verse 1, the first two lines once again touch on dan and phil’s maturity levels when they first met, referring to them as kids. they behaved as kids would, acting silly and goofy with each other and relishing in each other’s youth, savoring the honeymoon stage as much as they could. but with being a kid comes immaturity, and that side of them showed through some of their reckless behavior. they treaded on thin ice while not knowing what was beneath it as boundaries or limits really didn’t exist for them in the early days of their relationship

[Chorus]

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark with you between my arms

Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song

When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath

But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight

this is where the tenses change and the song switches its focus on what is happening in the present, unlike the two verses in the song which seem to be reminiscing on the early days of a relationship. the first two lines of the chorus describe the bond that dan and phil have now and the moments that they share together. dancing in the dark in each other’s arms and listening to their favorite song implies that it could be a song that holds a special meaning for both of them specifically or a song that they are both able to connect to and enjoy together as best friends/lovers/etc because it reminds them of each other. the plural pronoun choice in that second line is accurate considering dan and phil share pretty much everything

[Verse 2]

Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know

She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I’ll share her home

I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets

To carry love, to carry children of our own

the second line in this verse is probably the most important lines because the song directs its focus away from the present and jumps directly backwards into the past, treating the chorus almost like it was was a mere glimpse into the future. dan and phil quite literally shared each other’s dreams back in 2009, phil was a youtuber and dan was an aspiring one. and although they had no idea whether or not youtube would’ve become as massive of a platform as it is now, dan and phil still shared a lot of goals and also supported each other’s individual goals that the other might not have shared with them. so yes, technically they were still sharing each other’s dreams merely through mutual support regardless of whether or not both of them had those same exact dreams in mind. “I hope that someday I’ll share her home” is such a meaningful lyric because dan and phil never had any idea that they would’ve ever had the opportunity to move in with each other and change millions of people’s lives together. all they could hold onto at the time was hope. but that hope was so worth holding onto because now they’ve been sharing each other’s home for over 7 years, literally and metaphorically

the last two lines are pretty self explanatory. dan and phil know more about each other than anyone else does and some of the things that they feel comfortable sharing with each other are things that they wouldn’t feel comfortable sharing with anyone else. aside from secrets, they carry each other’s love, and even though they can’t literally “carry children,” they have created a family together. the meaning of family in this context is subjective, whether you want to consider it a family solely between the two of them or the family that they’ve made with their audience

We are still kids, but we’re so in love

Fighting against all odds

I know we’ll be alright this time

Darling, just hold my hand

Be my girl, I’ll be your man

I see my future in your eyes

once again there’s another tense shift. the lyrics are insinuating that the present relationship still has much room for growth but has remained very genuine, which is also true in dan and phil’s case because they are visibly growing with each day that passes. they are growing professionally and personally and the amount of that growth, even just recently, has been astronomical. they see their futures intertwined and they truly are so in love

as for that second line, read it and really let it sink in… “Fighting against all odds.” if dan and phil have done anything in their goddamn lives, it’s fighting all goddamn odds. the odds of phil’s replies to dan on twitter leading to dm’s, the odds of those dm’s leading to 5 hour skype calls, the odds of those skype calls eventually leading dan to buy a train ticket to piccadilly station and actually meet up with this man whom he had met online, the odds of them taking the biggest risk of their professional lives and moving in together in the heart of london so they could pursue a radio show that they had no idea would either pay off or go down in flames, the odds of them actually creating this life together, helping each other through their sudden rise to fame? the odds of them actually having the opportunity to create such a unique community and change people’s lives for the better? what dan and phil have is not what society would deem conventional, but they have beat every normative agenda out there and have literally defied all odds. there were so many potential setbacks… there were so many things that could’ve gone wrong… but they didn’t.

[Chorus 2]

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms

Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song

When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful

I don’t deserve this, darling, you look perfect tonight

[Chorus 3]

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms

Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song

I have faith in what I see

Now I know I have met an angel in person

And she looks perfect

I don’t deserve this

You look perfect tonight

these last two choruses are very similar to chorus 1 with a few minor lyrical changes

chorus 3 is a lot more confident and hopeful of the future, much like dan and phil seem to be at this current point in time. the view that they have of their future seems to be filled with such good things, like moving and adopting a dog and whatever other “life things” they might have in mind. but i think the most important thing to consider here is that their futures are so tightly bound to each other, and they have nothing but tremendous faith in each other. whatever their futures may hold, it holds them together

now end this analysis with a visual of dan and phil curled up together in phil’s bed, reminiscing on how all of this happened and just how lucky they are to have ended up in this current moment with each other

i’m not saying anything but… perfect is the perfect song for them

I’m tired of having this argument because the show spells it out with such excruciating clarity that it’s a bit unbelievable to me that his actions are still being interpreted this way, but Marcus Kane has never been the villain. He was never the one who wanted Abby dead, was never solely responsible for her husband’s death, and my god the shock-lashing thing was not about abuse. 

I see the defense that “it’s about character development” a lot, and it’s a fair one that I’m thankful to see, but it doesn’t paint the whole picture - a lot of people can and do interpret that as “oh, so he was an abuser before but now he’s not so we should forgive and forget” which is incredibly uncomfortable?? Abuse is abuse is abuse and if that were genuinely the case, you know I would be on the front lines against his relationship with Abby - because forgiveness is one thing, but there’s something to be said about keeping a healthy distance from someone who’s demonstrated that behaviour. I love my girl too much to allow that shit.

So. Why am I such a fan?

Because he hasn’t demonstrated that behaviour.

I don’t get why people keep calling Camilla a “flat character”

can’t they see

she’s very

well-rounded

Destigmatizing fan fiction (or, say it loud say it proud; the others are unappreciative idiots)

You know what irritates me to no end? The reputation that fan fiction has. Like, people act like it’s this silly lame thing to where I’m way too embarrassed to say that I write fanfic, when in reality these works can be hundreds of thousands of words long, written by some incredible authors who really poured their heart into them, and consumed by thousands of readers. The characters are well loved, yet often so complicated and taken in a unique direction by each individual author. Fan fiction is no different from regular fiction; writers simply borrow characters and near and dear relationships as a starting point.

Let me share an anecdote (I know, when do I not, but bear with): in senior year for my creative writing class we were instructed to submit a portfolio with a common thread. At the time, I was dealing with all manner of anxiety, and I figured that I’d invested so much effort and work and time into my fics that why not just showcase those? And so I edited them a bit, changed names and pronouns, took out fandom-specific references, a turned them in. My “common thread” was relationships. I explored different styles of writing, focused on primarily gay ships (they were all Johnlock, by the way), and in the end I did come up with a balanced and well-loved series of short stories. My teacher LOVED them, loved the variation, loved the very different plot lines, and then told me (and I live by this) that writing is just something I “need” to do.

Is my writing any less valuable because it started out as fanfic? Do I have less latent talent or passion because of it? Absolutely not. I write for hours because I love it. I keep myself up til 4 am (0/10 would recommend) writing, because it’s so seamless, and because it’s constantly in my head. Just because I write fan fiction doesn’t mean I’m not a true writer.

In conclusion, I think it’s time the world cooled their jets and got rid of the ridiculous stigma around fan fiction (yes, even and especially gay ships) and view it as simply a genre of writing, no more or less valid or respectable as any other. Be proud of your hard work; from now on, I certainly plan to respond to inquiries, head held high, that my writing is largely under the “fan fiction” genre.

Why Harry is not a bad father in cursed child

So on the Harry Potter amino i had a quite “nasty” discussion (when you can actually call it that as for a discussion both persons actually have to use arguments, not just one person) with a very thin skinned person (when you spread around cc hate, be prepared that some cc fans may actually argue against you, especially when you don’t use any real arguments whatsover) about Harry in cursed child and cursed child in general. He/she made a blog about his/her arguments after i “rudely forced him” to actually give me some things to back up his /her opinion, but well it is actually amazing how you can make a full blog without giving any actual arguments and just keep repeating “Harry just wouldn’t do that” (you may remember my blog about his/her dealthy hallows argument) all the time without using any quotes or explanations.So i made a blog in respond. Well he/she told me that he/she doesn’t care about my opinion, but i wrote and published this anyway!(When i made effort to write it, why not post it on Tumblr as well?)So here we go! As i structured this based on his/her blog, this is the structure i came up with:

1)      Why cursed child is canon

2)      Why Harry isn’t out of character in cursed child

3)      Why Harry is not a bad father


This will be quite long, so be prepared xD


1)      Why cursed child is canon

I heard a lot of people saying that cc isn’t canon, because Rowling didn’t completely write it. It is true that she got help by John Tiffany and Jack Thorne and that she didn’t completely write it on her own. The reasons are clear: She is not a playwriter, she hasn’t done this before and she didn’t think she could pull off a play script on her own.And i agree, writing novels and movie scripts is very different from writing a play script as this medium works different in some ways.

But this doesn’t mean cc isn’t canon. The inventing process was a close cooperation between these three and Rowling had the last say about her characters.

QUOTE: „The collaborators she approved were Thorne and Tiffany. They emphasized that Rowling made sure they stayed true to HER VISION of the characters“

„It took about six months to really map the whole thing out. (…) Jo would say `This feels right, this doesn’t´   - Jack Thorne

„And we didn’t start writing the play as such-or Jack didn’t-until we agreed on what that story was. Jack produced an AMAZING script“    -  J.K. Rowling

Do you really think she would agree on a play to be published, if she would disagree with the things that are in it?

Our queen herself stated that cc is 100% canon and when someone can define canon, then it’s her. She wouldn’t have published cc, if she wouldn’t see the story to continue like this and i trust her to know best how HER characters, she invented, would behave.

So yes cursed child is canon, if you like it or not. Of course you are free to dislike the new developement as much as you want, but just because it destroyed your personal headcanons, it’s not less canon. Creators don’t owe us anything, especially not our headcanons, and this is how she sees HER characters. We as a fandom can’t claim to know her characters better than she does and we shouldn’t, which leads me to my next point.

 

2)      Why Harry wasn’t out of character in cc

First of all (a point i actually agree on) cursed child is not a novel. It’s not written in Harry’s perspective and we have an objective look at Harry’s character. And no it’s not Albus‘ perspective, a play unlike a novel isn’t written out of anyone’s perpective.We are no longer influenced by Harry’s subjective opinion, but see everything a little bit more objective, especially Harry’s character. I think due to the perspective used in the novels it’s harder for some people to see Harry’s flaws in the original series.

In cc Harry of course grew up and got older, but he still has a lot of his original character traits.

I think a big problem for a big part of the fandom is that they forgot book Harry, because they watched the movies too often. The movies showed a very different and more bland, perfect and boring version of him.


Here are some things movie Harry didn’t do or did different:

-books Harry had quite a temper and anger issues at times. In book 5 he totally destroyed Dumbledore’s office in a big anger burst and he loses control over himself, when he is under emotional stress (sounds familiar, right?)

 

-book Harry sucessfully uses crucio (yes an unforgivable torture curse) on a death eater and doesn’t even regret it

 

-book Harry didn’t hide Snape’s book in halfblood prince, because he thought it was dangerous or wrong to use it, he hid it so Snape wouldn’t find it and he could continue using it

 

-book Harry said pretty mean stuff to Lupin in Dealthy Hallows. When he is under a lot of emotional pressure, he tends to say things to loved ones, he regrets afterwards (sounds VERY familiar, does it?)

There is more, but i stop now. (and no this has nothing to do with the epilouge from dealthy hallows as this scene is in the books, the movies and cursed child). I love complex and flawed book Harry and they did a very poor job adapting his personality to the screen.

Harry is not a „perfect“ human in cc and he never was in the original series. No well written and realistic and relatable character is „perfect“. The headcanons some people create for Harry are simply unrealistic and don’t fit his flawed personality at all. I am happy Rowling decided to stay with her vision of the characters and didn’t give in to the unrealistic, glorified Harry headcanons.

This doesn’t mean Harry lost his amazing and great characteristics in cc!

He is still the adventurous and brave and caring Harry we know from the books. Although he is indeed an office/ministry worker now, he actually isn’t in his office a lot. Harry still hates paper work and he still loves to explore the danger personally instead of reading about it.

„HERMIONE: (…) – thought i’d check whether you’d kept your promise and were on top of your paperwork.

HARRY: Ah. Turns out i’m not.

(…)

HARRY: Great, let’s get out there. I’ll get the team together.

HERMIONE: Harry, i get it. Paperwork’s boring…“

He is still the brave, charming and adventurous Harry we know so well and love from the books and he wants to be right in the action. He is also still very caring about his loved ones, but i will get to that at my next point.

 

3)      Why Harry isn’t a bad father

As i said Harry is not a perfect human being and he is not a perfect father, which doesn’t mean that he is a bad one!

In the play it gets clear that Harry is still very traumatised by the war, the dead people, his parent’s death and his abusive childhood. It is very hard for him to connect to people and to open up to another person.

You always have to look at both parts of a relationship to understand the motives why characters are acting like they do.


a)      Blanket scene

In this scene we have the infamous „I wish you weren’t my son “ line, which so many people take out of context and totally ignore the circumstances of.

The blanket scene is VERY important as it shows the basic misunderstanding between Harry and Albus, which leads to their difficult relationship.

In this scene we have proof of how much Harry cares for Albus. He knows that they distant themselve from each other and Harry wants to change that, because he loves Albus. So he decides to give Albus his most precious possession, the only thing he has left from his mother. It is clear how much this blanket means to Harry and that he wants to give it to Albus shows how caring Harry in cc is.

But when Albus rejects the blanket and distants himself more from him, of course Harry feels horribly hurt. This blanket means everything to him and that Albus rejects his kind gesture, really breaks his heart.

Parents are humans too and they are not immune to feelings and pain of rejection, especially not Harry who always had a bad temper. As in the original series Harry is portrayed very human and realistic in cc.

People who just look at this line out of context, mostly forget Albus‘ line immediately before Harry’s:

ALBUS: No! I just wish you weren’t my dad.

Here is where the essence of the play lies, the reason their relationship is so difficult.

Here lies the big misunderstanding between Harry and Albus. Everyone expects Harry to be perfect. Everyone just sees him as the „hero“ without any flaws, noone sees the human Harry, the frightened and flawed and realistic human being and person.

So Albus suffers under the unrealistically high expectations people set for him and he gets bullied at school. So of course he understandably projects his anger and pain on to Harry. He blames Harry for his suffering, but he actually doesn’t mean Harry as a person, but Harry’s fame and the high expectations that come with it. So with „i wish you weren’t my dad“ deep down he didn’t mean that Harry personally shouldn’t be his father, but that the famous Harry Potter shouldn’t be his father.

Harry of course is heartbroken, because he feels rejected by Albus and the line escapes his mouth. It is VERY clear, that he immediately regrets it and he tries the whole play to make up for it.

And  their relationship wasn’t always like that. At the beginning of the play their relationship is portrayed as very close and friendly. Albus is open about his fears and Harry is as open to him. Their relationship just went in the wrong direction after Albus gets bullied at school. Harry didn’t do anything wrong or different, it was Albus who (understandably) changed because of his father’s fame. We don’t see any problems between Harry and his other children, it’s just between Albus and him. The problem of their relationship isn’t based on what Harry did wrong as a parent, it’s based on what happened in his past and how his fame affects the way people treat Albus. They are both complex and interesting characters, who i can both understand very well. I can see why both of them feel how they feel and i feel bad for both of them. That’s why their relationship is so interesting and amazingly written, because you can understand both parts of this difficult relationship and you are rooting for them to overcome their problems.

 


b)      Seperating Albus and Scorpius

You can say what you want, but you can’t say that Harry doesn’t love his son and that he doesn’t care for him. Every mistake he makes is based on his desperate need to protect Albus.

When Harry hears about the „black cloud“, he feels such a big need to protect his son that he loses his sense of reality. He never met Scorpius and he doesn’t know him. He just connects the black cloud to Scorpius (isn’t the first time his mistery solving attempts went wrong…Snape and Quirell *cough).

Is it illogical and wrong to do this? Of course! But it is also understandable in Harry’s situation as he is put under a lot of emotional pressure and all he wants is to see his son safe. I’m pretty sure he never really believed in what he was saying. He was so easily convinced by Ginny and Draco and he very easily regrets it and apologizes to Albus for it.

 

Harry is not a perfect dad in cursed child and like any real parent he makes mistakes, but he is by no means a bad father.

„Love blinds“ is a theme of the play and yes, his love for Albus does blind him. But you can’t argue that he doesn’t love or care for Albus. He would do everything to keep his son safe – he throws himself in front of a killing curse for Albus – and his love and his caring make him a pretty good dad actually. Their relationship started of with difficulties because of Harry’s fame, but he never gave up on Albus and it is beautiful to see them finally finding each other at the end of the play. They finally show their love for one another and Albus can finally see Harry as a human, not as a famous hero. This is why the pidgeon line is so important. Harry admits his flaws and his fears to Albus and shows him that he is human. I love how Harry puts his arm around Albus in the last scene on stage. It’s such a beautiful and hopeful ending to the play.


Thanks @bounding-heart (i always take inspiration for my blogs from your page :))and @mrsellacott (the blogs you posted lately about Harry as a father really helped me writing this!)

anonymous asked:

when do u think deckerstar each fell in love with each other or started falling in love?

I think you people live to torture me with all these feel-worthy deckerstar asks omg. Edit: Okay I just finished this and I’m so sorry this just ran away with me. I just have so many feels about deckerstar. 

Chloe:

I definitely think Chloe started to have feelings for Lucifer around the 1x11 mark but didn’t officially start to “love” him until 2x07. 

Okay yeah I know big jump, but let’s be realistic! During season 1 Chloe really doesn’t know Lucifer until probably 1x09 and onwards. Sure she’d seen some parts of him in the rare vulnerable moment (like in 1x04), but until Father Frank dies I don’t think she had a reason to really start to develop feelings. Now before you all start bombarding me for that last comment, hear me out: think of it from Chloe’s prospective. This arrogant, self-absorbed junkie of a man verbally states he’s sticking around just because he finds her “interesting” and oh, he wants to sleep with her. That is not an incentive for Chloe folks!! If anything that is an incentive to get away and stay away from “walking- heroin” Lucifer Morningstar. As a single mother she does not want to take a bite out of that cake. 

But then in 1x09 both Chloe and the audience see something different in Lucifer. Father Frank’s character did a great job drawing the angel out of Lucifer by showing a more fun and sensitive side of our favorite Devil. He shows more emotions than he has all season; laughing and playing the piano and crying when Father Frank is murdered. This shows not only us, but Chloe as well, that Lucifer Morningstar’s persona of playboy nightclub owner is just a persona. This episode stripped back that layer of him and showed us all of Lucifer’s insecurities and just how kind he could be. The end scene with the piano colored him with so many more emotions than I think Chloe ever thought was possible. After this episode we see him really start to change for the better.

Which leads us to 2x07. Up until this episode, Lucifer and Chloe’s relationship grows by leaps and bounds, but this is the first time Chloe can visibly see the change. She’s had time to let the “attraction” feelings settle in and the moment Lucifer says “I think he would be proud of you” that does it for her. That compassion and consideration from Lucifer is what she has been unconsciously waiting on. In season 1 and even in the beginning of season 2, the old Lucifer would have never said that. No, that would be too touchy-feely for the old him. Those eight words change everything. They show emotional capacity and have real love behind them, and I think that makes her realize that her hug has love behind it as well.

Lucifer:

Lucifer, on the other hand, started to feel things a little earlier. My guess is that Lucifer started to have feelings around 1x07 but never let himself believe he was in love with Chloe until 2x12. Could I say he was in love with her by the end of 1x13? Yes, but I won’t and here’s why.

So in 1x07 the main focus of the episode for Lucifer was jealousy. Now jealousy is a fickle emotion; it is not without a source. That source has to come from your core emotions: love, hate, ect. Well Lucifer doesn’t necessarily hate Dan so it must be the former. The moment Lucifer becomes jealous of Chloe spending time with Dan, it shows just where his feelings lie. He is beyond just “intrigued”. No, intrigued wouldn’t warrant emotions of this intensity. This kind of passionate jealousy stems from passion itself. 

This passion has been bubbling since 1x04 and has just now turned itself into “attraction”. I don’t mean physical attraction, because Lucifer has always found her physically attractive. No, I mean he finds everything that makes Chloe Chloe attractive; which is a foreign concept to him. Never before has he felt something this deeply and that is what ultimately scares Lucifer into repressing those feelings until 2x12.

Now as I just stated, Lucifer was in hardcore denial mode in 1x13, which is why I’m not picking it. The reason I pick 2x12 is because of one line: “This is real”. Yes one of the most famous and important deckerstar lines to date. That line holds so much more than Lucifer realizing that their relationship is real. It means that everything is now real. All of his repressed emotions, all of her mixed signals, their fears, their love: it’s real. It’s all real.

Lucifer has lived his life with no idea how it feels to be wanted or to be loved. Seeing this woman terrified out of her mind that something could happen to him just blows his mind. He always told himself nobody could love the Devil, but here Chloe comes running to wrap him in this hug because she’s just so relieved he’s okay. And for once, Lucifer lets his walls down and believes it. He believes her. And just this once he believes in his own love.

Epic Movie (Re)Watch #132 - Good Will Hunting

Spoilers below.

Have I seen it before: Yes

Did I like it then: Yes.

Do I remember it: Yes.

Did I see it in theaters: No.

Format: Blu-ray

1) I find it interesting how when the opening credits say, “Written by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck,” it says Damon’s name over Affleck’s character and vice versa.

2) The first character in the film we really get to know is Stellan Skarsgård as Gerald Lambeau.

You get that Skarsgård has good intentions, even though he is a massive pretentious asshole who hits on his students and judges people not based on how happy they are but more their position in life. A janitor is a failure. A community college teacher is a failure. Any other opinions be damned. He’s not EXCLUSIVELY a bad guy though. You understand his intentions are good and he does learn as the film goes on, but damn if he isn’t just a prick for most of the film.

3) The first tavern scene is a nice way of introducing us to Will and his friends. It creates a sense of community between them and South Boston, a sense of character for every member of the group, and their relationships with each other.

4) Matt Damon as Will Hunting.

Originally posted by sidneyspoitiers

Will is a character who you really get to know over time, and that’s very nice. At first he largely keeps to himself and we get that he doesn’t care about power or prestige. At first that’s a noble thing, but then we learn that this is born less out of humility and more out of fear. Will is a flawed character. He convinces himself of all the disadvantages of somethings, of the shame of it, because he is petrified. His world, his life with his friends, that is safe for him. That is home. And he doesn’t really risk to go for more than that because of his fear of rejection (identified by Robin Williams’ Sean Maguire later in the movie). I think this - along with the beatings he sustained as a child - fuels the aggression we see (and later hear about) when he picks a fight with an old kindergarden bully for no other reason than he just felt like it (and then doesn’t stop until the cops show up).

But Will is SMART. And not like a little smart either, but incredibly intelligent. He’s not afraid to show it either, he doesn’t hide it when he feels a need to use it. But he doesn’t brag about it either. He is not in his friends’ faces with it with an, “I’m so much smarter than you,” attitude. Matt Damon - the film’s cowriter with Ben Affleck - plays Will’s many facets very well. This film is incredibly well cast and most of the actors when you’re watching them don’t FEEL like actors. They feel like the characters, totally and completely. Damon as the lead is no exception.

5) Can I just say: I LIVE for scenes in movies and moments in life where some pretentious condescending asshole is put in their place totally and completely? It’s so cathartic!

6) Minnie Driver as Skylar.

Can I just say I LOVE Skylar, even if she is at risk of falling into the category of manic pixie dream girl on paper. Minnie Driver’s academy award nominated performance in this film just makes her so much MORE than that! I love everything about Skylar: how she approaches Will at the bar and calls him an idiot for not asking her out, how she is able to hold her own against Will’s sense of humor and occasional bullshitting, her laugh, her honesty, her heart! The first time I watched this film I was in awe - more than anything else - with Driver’s realism in the part. She and Damon have knockout chemistry that not only suggests to you their heat but their friendship. It is totally believable that they fall in love in such a quick time, and that is because they work so fucking brilliantly with each other. There is sincerity, trust, comradery, humor, an ability to be themselves around each other. I believe Damon and Driver dated for a while after meeting on this film, and that chemistry shows. I just…gah! I love it so much!

7) Classic.

Will [to the douchebag from the bar]: “Do you like apples?”

Douchebag: “Yeah.”

Will [placing Skylar’s phone number on the glass between them]: “Well I got her number.”

8) The way Lambeau treats Will is…interesting, to say the least. At first it seems like he looks down at him. Like he’s his savior and he knows it. There’s a scene where after they’re done doing math together, Lambeau ruffles Will’s hair. Who the hell does that? It changes as the film goes on. You realize that Lambeau grows to understand that Will is truly an unmatched genius, but early on it’s…weird.

9) The string of psychiatrists Lambeau takes Will to see is very telling and very entertaining. It shows how smart Will is, but also how abrasive he is. How he scoffs at authority and the need for help. It’s a funny scene but it greatly tells to Will’s deeper struggles.

10) Robin Williams as Sean Maguire.

Originally posted by maryjosez

Williams won his first and only Oscar based on his performance in this film, and damn if it isn’t clear why. Williams is chameleonic. Yes you know its Robin Williams playing him, yes he brings some of his trademark improv comedy (more on that later), but you don’t SEE Williams. All you see is Sean, and that is incredible. Damon and Affleck took a character who could have easily been just the token mentor. The Obi-Wan to Will’s Luke Skywalker. But they did more. They gave Sean his own struggles, his own grief, his own desires, his own conflict, his own arc, and made a truly compelling character who can hold his own against Damon’s Will.

You learn a lot about Sean as the film goes along. You learn how his life is defined by his love and loss of his wife, you see that he is able to relate to actual people, that he hates the MIT snobs. The dude chokes Will out for insulting his wife at one point and is the first therapist to kick Lambeau out of his session. Meaning he takes his time with Will far more seriously than the other therapists.

The chemistry between Williams and Damon is on par with the chemistry between Driver and Damon, although of a fundamentally different nature. Williams as Sean is able to sift through Will’s bullshit, knows when he doesn’t need to put up with it, and is able to slowly make this character who is so afraid of rejection comfortable around him. I think it’s the key relationship in the film, and I love it.

11) Danny Elfman’s score in this film is beautiful. Elfman is known for his more macabre work through collaborations with directors like Tim Burton and Sam Raimi, but here he creates a hopeful and sincere melody which carries you through the film like a leaf on the wind. I think it’s great.

12) The scene where Sean is talking to Will on a park bench is somewhat iconic, but I think it is very powerful for one key reason: the filmmakers decided to keep it on William’s performance for most of the scene. They did not cut between him and Damon, they let his acting and his heart carry those minutes and it is incredible I think. You can watch for yourself if you so desire:

This is my favorite line from that monologue:

Sean: “You’re an orphan right. Do you think I know the first thing about how hard your life has been - how you feel, who you are - because I read Oliver Twist?”

People like to say they know what other people are going through, but unless they have personally they don’t have any idea what they’re talking about. Thank you to this film for having that line in there. I love it.

13) According to IMDb:

The lines in the scene when Sean talks about his late wife’s farting antics were ad-libbed by Robin Williams. That is why Matt Damon was laughing so hard. If you watch the scene carefully you can notice the camera shaking a bit, possibly due to the cameraman laughing as well.

14) This film does an excellent job in balancing the aspects of Will’s life. We get the perfect looks at his relationship with his friends, with Skylar, with Sean, and with Lambeau. There’s not too much and there’s not too little, it’s just right.

15) It is interesting to see how Will lets his guard down with Skylar in some regards while also keeping it up in some ways (namely, lying about how he has 12 brothers).

16) I love Skylar’s story with Will’s friends.

Minnie Driver is gold.

17)

Lambeau [after Sean says they should let Sean go down his own path]: “It worked wonders for you didn’t it?”

Sean: “Yeah it did you arrogant fucking prick.”

WHETHER OR NOT SOMEONE HAS LIVED A GOOD LIFE IS NOT BASED ON THEIR STATURE. IT IS NOT BASED ON THEIR JOB, THEIR WEALTH, THEIR LOOKS, NOTHING LIKE THAT. IT IS EXCLUSIVELY BASED ON HOW HAPPY THEY ARE LIVING THEIR LIFE AND HOW MUCH PAIN THEY ARE OR ARE NOT CAUSING OTHERS!!!!

(GIF originally posted by @marshmallow-the-vampire-slayer)

I have a lot of strong feelings on this matter, can you tell?

18) I love how Will explains the way his brain works. How he says Mozart and Beethoven could just look at a piano and play, that’s how his brain works with history and numbers and science and stuff. It actually makes a lot of sense despite being pretty vague.

19) Get ready to have your heart broken by Will being a fucking idiot.

GODDAMN IT WILL!!!!!

20) Will’s whole monologue about why he doesn’t take a job with the NSA because of what COULD happen and one hypothetical leading to another is just a perfect example of him using his intellect to rationalize his fears in a bullshit way.

Will [in a session with Sean]: “Why shouldn’t I work for the N.S.A.? That’s a tough one, but I’ll take a shot. Say I’m working at N.S.A. Somebody puts a code on my desk, something nobody else can break. Maybe I take a shot at it and maybe I break it. And I’m real happy with myself, ‘cause I did my job well. But maybe that code was the location of some rebel army in North Africa or the Middle East. Once they have that location, they bomb the village where the rebels were hiding and fifteen hundred people I never met, never had no problem with, get killed. Now the politicians are sayin’, “Oh, send in the Marines to secure the area” 'cause they don’t give a shit. It won’t be their kid over there, gettin’ shot. Just like it wasn’t them when their number got called, 'cause they were pullin’ a tour in the National Guard. It’ll be some kid from Southie takin’ shrapnel in the ass. And he comes back to find that the plant he used to work at got exported to the country he just got back from. And the guy who put the shrapnel in his ass got his old job, 'cause he’ll work for fifteen cents a day and no bathroom breaks. Meanwhile, he realizes the only reason he was over there in the first place was so we could install a government that would sell us oil at a good price. And, of course, the oil companies used the skirmish over there to scare up domestic oil prices. A cute little ancillary benefit for them, but it ain’t helping my buddy at two-fifty a gallon. And they’re takin’ their sweet time bringin’ the oil back, of course, and maybe even took the liberty of hiring an alcoholic skipper who likes to drink martinis and fuckin’ play slalom with the icebergs, and it ain’t too long 'til he hits one, spills the oil and kills all the sea life in the North Atlantic. So now my buddy’s out of work and he can’t afford to drive, so he’s got to walk to the fuckin’ job interviews, which sucks 'cause the shrapnel in his ass is givin’ him chronic hemorrhoids. And meanwhile he’s starvin’, 'cause every time he tries to get a bite to eat, the only blue plate special they’re servin’ is North Atlantic scrod with Quaker State. So what did I think? I’m holdin’ out for somethin’ better. I figure fuck it, while I’m at it why not just shoot my buddy, take his job, give it to his sworn enemy, hike up gas prices, bomb a village, club a baby seal, hit the hash pipe and join the National Guard? I could be elected president.”

21) One of my favorite scenes in this film is Chuckie’s reaction after Will says he’s going to stay in south Boston his whole life.

Chuckie: “Look, you’re my best friend, so don’t take this the wrong way but, in 20 years if you’re still livin’ here, comin’ over to my house, watchin’ the Patriots games, workin’ construction, I’ll fuckin’ kill ya. That’s not a threat, that’s a fact, I’ll fuckin’ kill ya.”

He is like the only one - between Skylar, Sean, and Lambeau - to actually get through to Will. And that is because he speaks Will’s language. It’s one of my favorite character moments in the film.

22) I do really love the climax of the film (Sean telling Will, “It’s not your fault,” for his foster dad beating on him and Will breaking down into tears) even if I’m aware of some of it’s flaws. This is a turning point for Will, but if he were in therapy in real life this wouldn’t be the end. Also most therapists don’t treat their patients this way. But that’s the beauty of fiction: we have this thing called suspension of disbelief which makes movies fun to watch! :D

23) I think the ending for this film is quite lovely. So many different ideas from earlier play into effect, Will goes to make up with Skylar (headcanon: he gets her back after much groveling and attempts to convince her he’s changed), and what Matt Damon said was Robin Williams’ best improvised line in the film.

Will [in a note he leaves for Sean]: "Sean, if the Professor calls about that job, just tell him, sorry, I have to go see about a girl.“

Good Will Hunting is a classic of cinema. It features excellent writing that features a heartwarming story, supported by incredible performances across the board. Williams, Damon, and Driver are all particular standouts, but the film is just so good. Perhaps a little overrated, but still incredible. Go see it!

anonymous asked:

Barakamon vs Poco's udon world, who wins?

Oh petal, this question is way harder than I thought. I need to analyze this so:

The story

Barakamon is a story of a boy who finds home away from home, while Poco’s is the story of a boy who finds home…coming back home (and you know I’m so weak for this trope). Both the stories start with them leaving Tokyo not by their will, but because they were either sent away with force or because they suddenly had to return home. Neither of them had any intention to stay away long. Both of them decided to never come back to Tokyo, after. So yes, there are a lot of parallelisms, even if the two stories are essentially one the opposite of the other.

The Main Characters

Seishuu and Souta are two completely different people. They are one the opposite of the other. Sei is an arrogant and spoiled 22 year old rich boy, while Souta is 30 year old man whose parents died and who’s dealing with the guilt of having disappointed his father before he died. Being completely honest, I’ve never been fond of Sei. I liked him, I liked his character development during the series, but I’m not emotionally attached to him at all. Souta, on the other hand…I truly adored him and his story was really emotional. It’s easy to empathize with him, maybe that’s why in the end I cried so much…….

The Kids

Oh, finally, the lights of these shows! I adored them both, it’s impossible to choose! Naru is so funny, she’s adventurous, reckless, and a true little savage. She reminded me of one of the Lost Boys. She’s a ray of light, it’s impossible not to smile every time you see her. Damn I truly love her so much, she’s there true star of Barakamon. And Poco, my little adorable baby tanuki. Poco is way younger than Naru, so he doesn’t have a lot of lines, and yet he was able to change the life of every single character he met. He’s adorable and I was emotionally attached to him immensely. Again, probably that’s why I cried so much.

The relationship between the Kids and the Main Characters

Originally posted by gothweirdfigure

Originally posted by jyoshikausei

Even if the outcome is the same and Sei loved Naru as much as Souta loved Poco, how they got there is probably the biggest difference between the two shows. Sei took a long time to accept Naru, he kicked her out of his house many times and never actually took care of her. Eventually, Sei warmed up to her and gave up, letting himself be loved and developing with Naru the strongest bond. She’s the person who made him fall in love with the island. Souta loved Poco from the beginning. Souta protected and took care of him like he was his own. Souta learned how to be a parent from scratch and was ready to adopt him and live with him forever. That’s why I was SO MAD and I cried SO MUCH when they couldn’t have the happiness they deserved. 

I think the difference was evident in the episode when they were forced to come back to Tokyo: Sei left alone and in secret (he took Naru with him only the second time), while Souta took Poco with him, he never thought about leaving him for a moment. But their situations are really different: Naru had an entire island to take care of her, while Poco didn’t have anyone else.

The Boyfriends

Last but not least, our boyfriends. Much like the kids, I liked them both. I slightly liked Nakaji better, but mostly because he reminds me of Chuuya Poco’s Udon Word gave us his backstory and a lot of other material regarding his life and struggles (see: his relationship with his father, with Souta’s sister and so on), while we know little to nothing about Hiro. The thing here is that Nakaji is 30 while Hiro is 18, they are impossible to compare.

So…well…I guess Poco’s Udon World wins for me after all. Don’t get me wrong, Barakamon is still a masterpiece and overall I think it’s a better show. But Poco’s udon World is the one that stole my heart. 

Polyamorous Clay Jensen (ft. Tony and Jeff)

• I mean Clay just has so much love to give so why does he have to love only one person?

• Clay and Tony haf been seeing eachother for a while and even though they hadn’t officially defined their relationship they both felt they didn’t really need to put a sticker on themselves.

• They were always comfortable with one another and would listen to the other person’s opinions before passing judgement.

• So it was when they were relaxing in Clay’s bedroom that Clay brought up the subject.

• “Um, so, Jeff asked me out on a date today and - uhh - I said yes”

• Tony’s shock manifested itself in the form of a stunned silence. It took him a few long seconds before he spoke again.

• “Oh, ok, Clay. I mean, if that’s what you wanna do then that’s cool. But if i did anything wrong or put you off in anyway please just tell me.”

• “It’s wasn’t you, Tony! Don’t think that.. You’re going along completely the wrong lines… Yeah, Jeff did ask me out but not just me. He asked the both of us out. As in you, me and him.”

• It was evident from the look on Tony’s face he wasn’t expecting that.

• “We’ve never discussed anything like this before, Tony and i dont see why love has to be just between two people? We both just have so much love to give so why not extend our relationship to another person? It’s called polyamory and i realised a long time ago that i am polyamorous so i just thought maybe you, Jeff and I could give it shot?”

• “Cool, that actually sounds kinda nice, Clay.”

• Tony was so nervous when the day of the date actually came around and Clay held his shaking hand extra tightly as they met up with Jeff in the evening.

• The date went swimmingly and even lead to a couple more before they finally became official boyfriends. This time, putting a big sticker on their relationship felt right.

• Fast foward a year and Jeff had just held the most amazing house party. The boys climbed sleepily into bed and snuggled with one another.

• Mr Long-legs Jeff Atkins would tangle his feet with Tony and Clay would tickle the hair on the nape of Jeff’s neck whilst pressing soft kisses along his shoulder blades. He knew it put him to sleep easily.

• Their days were spent cuddling and kissing and going out on little adventures lead by Tony. Clay would host movie nights and bring home some left overs from the cinema.

• Clay would often just look and his boyfriends and feel as if he would explode if he managed to love them any more than he did already.

• Clay Jensen and his boyfriends are polyamorous and so fucking in love its beautiful.

My I - theory/explanation

I always wondered why they chose to dance with the long strand of ribbon in ‘My I’, and I thought maybe it represents the relationship between two people because a part of the lyrics are “When I meet you after time passes, I’ll know (you were my future), I’ll (I was your yesterday)” which hinted that there was some sort of fall out between two people or an recruited love. Jun wore black so I thought he represented the person who couldn’t let go while Minghao wore white which means he moved on. Also, they both drop the ribbon near the end of the song which I thought was the “break up”.

Ha lol nope.

In Going Seventeen Ep.18, Minghao said that the ribbon in their dance is the connection from the present to the future, which is basically time. He also said that he represents the future while Jun is the present. Jun said that the future ‘self’ is telling the past self that even though it is hard, don’t give up, and that he is waiting int he future. Minghao commented that they wrote the lyrics to give hope to people.

“When I take one step closer
The flower path grows thorns
Then you reach out to save me”

…is Jun (present self/past from Minghao’s POV) becoming more caught up in the hardships happening right now but is “saved” because the future (Minghao) gives him hope.

I re-watched the MV and realised Minghao wears black and Jun wears white at the very beginning of the video, but they switch when the song starts. I think maybe Minghao is the future self remembering/singing to the past while Jun is looking forward/singing to his future to gain more hope. When the let the ribbon go, it shows freedom which they portray with their own complex dance. At the very end, they pick up the ends of the ribbon and brings them together which represents reconciliation of the present and future; the current self accepting the future and not giving up/the future self encouraging and giving hope as well as getting over the past.  

You know, something that I was just thinking about is that:

The more I venture and check out other shows that have queer relationships, the more thankful I am for Carmilla and how much Hollstein is kept at the forefront.

A lot of shows that have queer representation tend to always have the queer characters/relationships as the side story lines. That’s not to say that having them in side story lines is bad or that amazing things and growth isn’t possible in those roles, because that’s not true at all. But what always tends to happen–for me, personally–is that I tend to always leave craving more scenes with them since they don’t get nearly as much onscreen time as the main story or main love interest would get. I’m never satiated. 

And that is why I feel so lucky for Carmilla because, not only are the two main characters queer, but also the main love story is a queer relationship. Sadly, that still is such a rarity to find and I’m just so thankful that we get a show that gives us that at its center and is “unabashedly queer”.

Some thoughts about Malec...

I love Magnus and Alec so much, I love the way they’re portrayed and developed as characters and with regard to their relationship. I feel very grateful and lucky I fell in love with such an epic, romantic, emotional relationships. Hands down, they’re one of the best TV couples ever.

That been said, I must admit I’m a bit confused by something. 

During season 1 we’ve seen Magnus flirting shamelessly with Alec, showing, with respect, but very clearly, how much he was attracted by him, how much he wanted him, and we saw Alec being delighted, flattered and flustered by that, we saw him flirting back, even if in a shier way. 

We saw Magnus being unable to look away when he saw a shirtless Alec training and many of us had the feeling that Alec wanted that kind of reaction and that it wasn’t just a case that he let Magnus find him sweaty and half naked.

We saw Magnus provoking Alec with that tremendously suggestive and sexy “I’ll do you pro bono” proposal.

We saw Alec being unable to properly breathe and think when Magnus was trying to talk him out of the wedding with Lydia. It was so sexy to see Magnus could have that kind of effect on Alec even just with his words and the images and feelings they suggested…  “You lose your breath everytime they enter the room…Your heart beats faster when they walk by. Your skin tingles when they are close enough to feel your breath…”

And what about their first kiss? The anticipation, the passion but also the sweetness that made that moment one of best and more iconic moments television has ever had.

My point is… Magnus and Alec are clearly two passionate people and they clearly are very passionate about each other, there is love between them, as much as there is sexual attraction, so… why not showing that? I’m not talking about overtly explicit scenes, but suggestive lines, them being flirty, teasing each other, coupley moments, intimacy. These characters and these actors have such a tremendous chemistry with each other and, while i loved all the sweet kisses they shared, I feel like there’s something missing, that something that shows the passion between them, how much they want each other. Like it was in season 1, but enhanced and much more meaningful because they are a couple now.

I really hope we will get to see this aspect of their relationship, it would made even more perfect something that already is perfect and unique.

What are your all-time favorite Riarkle moments from the show and why?

Wow I just got around to answering this! Hmm… that’s an interesting question I was just thinking about Riarkle earlier this morning actually. My all time favorite Riarkle moments would go something like this:

5. Girl Meets STEM

This one is really self-explanatory. The whole episode was really dedicated to Riley and Farkle which led to me watching the show, which culminated in me loving Riley and Farkle. I think everything from their interaction throughout the episode to the way Riley’s anger is diffused immediately when Farkle realized how upset she was made it a great Riarkle episode/moment for me.

4. Girl Meets the Great Lady of New York

The moment in this episode still has me scratching my head, tbh. I understand why they had Riley be there for Farkle in the way that she was but… given everything that had come after that episode, Riarkle wise, it really was a springboard for a lot of future Riarkle moments. Plus, the way Riley looked at Farkle had me shook. If you don’t know what I mean, go and take a look at my header in my blog.

3. Girl Meets Texas pt. 3/Girl Meets the New Year

One of the biggest if not the biggest “spot-the-difference” moments in the show in terms of perception vs. reality. Also, the first “I love you’s” between Riley and Farkle were exchanged. Even if it wasn’t romantic in nature, it was a very sweet moment between the two. It really showed me how much Farkle cared for Riley, and it also showed me that he did not love Maya and Riley in the same way - he hadn’t for a while.

2. Girl Meets A Christmas Maya

Still shook. I could really end it there, but yeah, I’m still shook! Everything about their moment had me sentimental as hell. What got me the most was this one line by Riley:

“Ever since the day after our culture week, when you found out that you might have a new ancestry, I started reading about it… because I love you.”

Well the whole explanation for the gift was amazing, but just the thought that Riley spent upwards of two months researching about his ancestry… just to give him a gift so he could have a better understanding of self. Arguably, the most selfless thing that Riley has done in the entire show. This really was the scene that 100% sold Riarkle to me. Even though for the entire time that I’ve blogged about them, I was strongly convinced about their merit, it wasn’t until this scene came out that I was like “Yeah, they gon do something with this”.

1. Girl Meets Permanent Record

I know this is definitely not everyone’s number one, so let me explain why it’s mine. Riley and Farkle had the most unique relationship on the show, in my opinion. While I’m not trying to take away from the merit of Riley and Maya, and what that relationship meant, in my opinion, there was and has always been something special about Riley and Farkle.

We don’t get many intimate Riley and Farkle scenes, but to me, Permanent Record embodies what I believe is the uniqueness of Riley and Farkle. Let me qualify this statement. Riley Matthews, while always meaning well, had a tendency to push and push until she either got the person she was trying to help to make a positive difference in their life, or pushed them too far and they broke (i.e. Smackle and Maya).

She doesn’t do that with Farkle… ever. If we compare Farkle’s character growth arc to Maya’s, one of major differences we see is how Riley responded to their change. With Farkle, she not only embraced it, but she encouraged it as well. However, with Maya, she pushed her back into this metaphorical “box” because Maya was “bad” and Riley was “good” (Although, I do concede that the circumstances surrounding Farkle and Maya’s growth weren’t exactly “equal).

Literally without fail, almost every single important moment between Riley and Farkle has led to either growth, understanding, or acceptance. Agree or disagree, this is only the case with Riley and Farkle. Which leads me to why I love this scene between the two so much.

There wasn’t even much to comment on here, but it was one of the more intimate scenes between the two. And, I think it’s important to note that after everything had transpired it was this line that really made the moment worthwhile:

“You’ve always been Riley. That’s your permanent record.”

This episode just showcased the unconditional nature of Riley and Farkle’s relationship. Just as Riley was there for Farkle in GLONY, Farkle was there for her in this episode. Well… actually they were there for each other, but that’s besides the point. Anyways, those are my top 5!

Thanks for asking!

ok but imagine this: yoonseok are dating and the only one who knows is namjoon because both of them ended talking with him about that and that's why he always cheers for them when they do something (namjoon hyping them during sope-me duet/jumping and clapping when yoongi chose hoseok as his [soul]partner during olympic games/posting pictures of them on twitter with the caption 솝/watching them have their moments on stage without complaining/etc).

namjoon would totally be the first one they’d tell about their relationship (or about their feelings even before confessing to each other) but he’d be just “eh i knew” 

reasons why and what i love about bbh

1. he’s naturally a nice person that puts everyone before him
2. he cares for his fans and his members
3. his laugh
4. especially that kind of laugh he does when he’s so giddy
5. that small mole near his lips
6. fluffy hair
7. i love black haired baekhyun
8. but every color suits him so
9. he might look ridiculous when dancing freestyle but that’s one of the things why i love him
10. “kkaebbsong”
11. besides chanyeol and jongdae, he’s one of the light (no pun intended) that brightens up everyone’s mood
12. his gummy smile
13. his shy smile
14. and that smile he does when he laughs
15. it melts everyone’s hearts tbh
16. when he smiles so happily that his eyes form an eyesmile
17. fingers
18. his slender fingers that everyone also loves to fantasize about
19. this is why i now have a hand fetish
20. blame baekhyun
21. his cute nose
22. the way his nose scrunch up in disgust when he finds something distasteful
23. do i have to start why i love his voice?
24. his voice
25. call every baekhyun stan a lovesick puppies but one of the main reasons why we love him is because of his voice
26. it’s like listening to an angel sing
27. really pleasant to listen to + the high notes
28. when he does high notes it makes me think that his voice is high as my dreams
29. but nonetheless, his voice is fucking fantastic stan him but don’t forget to stan the rest of exo members or just stan exo because they’re kings
30. when he collabs with other artists
31. why does his voice fit with every artists he does duets with???
32. ^ everyone questions that
33. and whenever he does an interview with an artist it always seems like he has two sides
34. shy baekhyun and his natural state baekhyun
35. remember that one time he did an interview with suzy he accidentally introduced himself as “suzy”
36. he can be a nervous wreck sometimes but that’s okay
37. his broad shoulders period.
38. airport fashion
39. i always find myself looking at his pictures of him being at an airport and i always go “damn” because he’s always slaying like yeeeess
40. he has a good fashion sense
41. but even if he doesn’t we still won’t care
42. he can wear a fucking sack and we’d still hardcore stan him
43. let’s speak about his relationship with the members
44. starting with the youngest sehun; he always loves to bite the maknae
45. sehun says it’s because baekhyun is really sensitive to bad smells and sehun smells really nice (like a baby) that’s why he often latches himself to the maknae
46. then kai aka jongin, i can see baekhyun idolizes kai because kai is afterall, one of the best dancers in exo (yixing and sehun included)
47. i think he once mentioned in an interview that he practices dancing in the their studio so he can get better, thus, also letting kai teach him
48. i don’t know why yall are saying kyungsoo hates him; they’re actually best friends
49. baekhyun even said so
50. you might think that they dont because their personalities don’t match but i gotchu fam
51. their personalities are actually similar to each other
52. i would explain it but it would take a lot so i’ll just shorten my explanation abit
53. you question their friendship with each other? well as you see kyungsoo is naturally quiet person, personally known as one of mysterious members in the group and baekhyun as the the member who never stops running his mouth,, baekhyun actually has a melancholy soft quiet side in him that surprisingly matches kyungsoo’s personality
54. you might question how and even say that he can never be serious but how can he be friends with kyungsoo if he can’t be a soft quiet mochi
55. i feel like im doing a deep theory that no one understands lmao
56. going to chanyeol,, i have a few things to say
57. chanbaek
58. i can see why most people ship the two of them
59. they’re also best friends, they’re also really close even as trainees
60. their personalities also match; both mood makers and laughs to joke around
61. also best friend goals - a tall one and a short one
62. jongdae aka chen, i dont see why only a few people ship this but #chenbaek
63. they have good chemistry, besides being good friends like the last two mentioned before, i think hanging out with him and baekhyun will never make you bored
64. they would probably pull pranks on you
65. basically the whole beagle line would nonstop pranks on you
66. random but,, i also feel like baekhyun would be a good listener
67. his relationship with yixing are one of the things i love about him
68. he loves yixing so much like a younger brother looking up to his older brother aw
69. lmao 69 i wouldn’t let this opportunity to go away but i feel like baekhyun would be really that type of person who will love to leave hickeys all over your skin
70. back to the topic, with junmyeon – he also looks up to him
71. i don’t see why not, after all junmyeon is a good leader so
72. i see baekhyun coming to junmyeon for advice whenever a problem comes up tbh
73. with minseok we can see baekhyun loves to nag him
74. but despite the nagging, we can also see that minseok cares after him like a younger bro
75. bro goals amirite
76. baekhyun really loves his members they’re basically family
77. so back to 69 how about i steam up the talk, you’re probably bored
78. probably mostly everyone said this but he’s probably a submissive
79. he can be dominant too smh
80. my reasons why i love about him is switching lanes
81. i love that he’s so caring of his fans
82. despite the fact that he’s been hurt a lot by the hate some of us spit at him
83. i dont understand how you can hate him for dating back then some of us are fucking heartless af
84. if he wants to date, let him. i know it hurts as a fan, i know that heartbroken feeling but we shouldn’t be selfish and keep him from being happy
85. yeah he has us, but we aren’t for eternal
86. you do know in a few years he has to find someone he wants to get settled with
87. he’s generally a nice person appreciate him
88. his humbleness
89. he never boasted about his fame nor the amount of money he has
90. he’s always thankful
91. besides him being humble, he’s also hardworking
92. he’s probably one of the most loved idols
93. i feel like he loves joking around with his juniors
94. do you think he treats them food too?
95. he’s an epitome of fluffiness
96. the fact he has this bond with fans that no one can break
97. the fact that he’s all mochi then the second later he’s all daddy we’re all dead
98. but that only makes our love for him grow stronger
99. happy birthday baekhyun
100. i love you so much
