So I thought I’d make a list of shit that I couldn’t cope with it not having:
-Blue and Ronan are played by Amandla Stenburg and Reece King
-Noah needs to be a faded glittery ghost child, he needs the glitter that’s the most important part
-the “murdered murdered remembered” scene
-everything needs to be aesthetic and pretty
-Cabeswater needs to look pretty not some ugly cgi shit
-the iffy maybe slightly problematic stuff that ronan said would preferably be excluded
-the wardrobe needs to be good, the boat shoes cannot be excluded
-THE MURDER SQUASH SONG
-300 Fox Way has to be so busy and cosy and psychic-y
-I want Ronans love affair with his car to be captured in excruciating detail I fucking love Ronan and his car
-it needs to be shown that Ronan is completely and utterly in love with Adam but shown in a soft light and pretty and also Fire and sex and just you know
-Ronan and Noah’s friendship
-When Gansey and Blue kiss but don’t kiss on the mountains I loved that scene so much
-“I’m always straight” “oh man that’s the biggest lie you’ve ever told”
what if they just cast a bunch of male models as the raven boys. they don’t say anything, they just stand on grassy hills while wind blows through their hair, while they look into the distance dramatically and a great soundtrack plays in the background.
I want the trc tv show to cast pretty much all unknown actors like this series is so strange and organic that having actors who aren’t over saturated or well-known would fit into the narrative perfectly
just imagine the trailer for the raven cycle tv show..
it starts with the gang getting out of the camaro and walking through cabeswater, a stag runs away in the distance
the camera zooms in on noah, as he walks farther into cabeswater, and a skull quickly flashes over his face as the scene slowly gets darker
then it pans over to adam who is lying in the grass. the grass just slowly grows over him and it just swallows him up
then onto blue who is walking to this giant tree and just as she turns to look back at the camera she vanishes behind the tree.. almost like she disappeared into it
next onto ronan who has a unkindness of ravens (i think that is the term) circling him into a tornado of them. he just fades into them
then the camera gets to gansey, with cabeswater behind him,… he’s all nicely dressed.. he’s wearing a crown with golden bees on it.. they start to come alive and you see panic in his eyes, the camera still zooming in towards him…
as chainsaw flies up from behind him, and grabs his crown off his head as she flies into the camera.
it goes black and the raven cycle flashes across the screen.
and that’s it. that’s all that is shown. in a way we get the whole story and almost nothing at all. @maggie-stiefvater
