i feel like we don’t talk enough about john’s acting in tfa. like
finn goes though so. many. emotions in such a brief time. from the very start of the film, he goes though: grief, determination, panic, resolve, fear, euphoria (the high of his successful escape with poe), and so much more.
i think what really sells it, for me, is finn/john’s ability to pull of levity in the midst of intensity. like, the “why are you helping me”/“it’s the right thing to do,” exchange between him and poe, or the “yep, i’m with the resistance. i am with the residence,” exchange later on, with rey.
the writing there is great, but those lines had to be delivered perfectly in order to land, and john absolutely brought it home.
anyway finn is amazing and unique, and john brought him to life brilliantly.
Why do you like Ruby? As in what exactly made you like her
So many things. So so many, I just…Ruby is my ideal heroine/lead character.
Here, let me explain…
The very first time we meet Ruby, she is standing in front of her mother’s gravestone. Even if we didn’t know that at the time, we knew it was significant. It already grounded her - it gave her character a base. As we’ve gotten to know more about her and seen her talk about/to her mother, it’s only shown more of how much Summer meant to her in such a short time.
Ruby based her entire look of of her mother, because she wants so desperately to make this woman she barely was able to know proud. She’s perhaps idealized her mother, but that’s okay - it’s made her who she is. Ruby has a lot of baggage and I hope that as the show continues on, we get to see more and more of it. She grew up very lonely, mostly by choice. Not interested in social interaction and not very good at it either. That was incredibly relatable to me.
Also, she is a bad ass. She is so tiny, but carries around this giant weapon that she loves so much and made herself which is amazing. I have these images of little Ruby up all hours of the night putting this thing together - working on it without breaks until Yang finally has to drag her away to eat and shower and sleep. Ruby’s drive to be a huntress is admirable and yet it’s built so much on this foundation of good.
The most vital quality Ruby has is her heart. It’s huge and it’s pure. When she talks to Blake about why she wants to be a huntress, it’s perfect. Yes she loves hunting monsters, but she wants to keep people safe. She wants to do her mother proud and protect the innocent - to keep up that fight. Much like the passion with her weapon, Ruby is a character that would have to be dragged away from someone in need. She wouldn’t be able to help herself from helping someone else. Even at her own expense.
Also, Ruby’s growth (and not just the hair growth which I also love and want MORE). When we first met her, she was a loner who only wanted to fight and be with Crescent Rose and a few weapons magazines. Still, Yang advised her to try and make friends and she did. She tried with the hardest subject she could find in Weiss Schnee and not only did they become friends (along with the rest of RWBY/JNPR/SSSN/Penny), they became almost a family and Ruby would do anything for them.
(ignore the text, old gif, all I have) This brings me to Penny and how important Penny is to Ruby’s story and why I love her. The significance of how Ruby accepted Penny spoke volumes. She didn’t hesitate, not for a second, in just accepting that Penny was a robot and that she wasn’t any less because of that. So much so that even Penny was surprised at how well she took the news. Ruby sees people as they are - good or bad. She accepts it and them and she tries her hardest to make them feel welcome. She did the same with Blake. Blake being a faunus only mattered to Ruby because she thought the ears were cute. That’s the only thing that changed in Ruby’s eyes when she found out.
Resiliency is one of the greatest things a hero can have, and Ruby Rose has it in spades. She lost so much at the fall of Beacon, most of all her innocence that the world was, for the most part, as good as she wanted it to be. It would have been easy for her, at 15, to drop her fight and succumb to the fact that bad things just happen. She lost her team, her education at Beacon, her sister had even given up. Ruby didn’t - she was determined to continue to fight and to protect the world like she’d always wanted. Her innocence may, at times, be a flaw - but I also think it’s wonderful because it’s so filled with hope. I love hope when it comes to heroes. I want the hero that smiles and laughs and shows they care instead of pretending they don’t.
She’s funny too, like one of the most underrated aspects of Ruby’s character is just how damn funny she is. A lot of that credit goes to Lindsay Jones, her voice actress, who delivers the lines so perfectly times and even the ones she ad-libs (like Blake enjoying tuna) just bring so much personality to her. Subtle things like answering Oobleck with a “yo” when asked who wants first watch or giggling like crazy at Jaune’s hoodie. She sees the joy in the world, even when it’s dark and I LOVE that. She’s a giant dork in the best way possible.
I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to see where this girl is going and who she’s going to become. I want to see her develop all of her talents and be the leader and hero she’s destined to be. I love Ruby because she’s good, purely good and not an anti-hero or cliched dark/emotionless warrior. She’s a kid with a gigantic high impact sniper scythe who loves cookies and fighting monsters and will do anything to keep the people she loves safe.
Since I try not to judge a book by its cover, I spent the past two weeks exploring all of Corrin’s potential first-generation husbands (minus the exclusives I can’t obtain in Revelation).
Thoughts are based on S-ranks, My Room dialogue (I tried to reach at least 4-5 hearts with each husband) and dialogue with Kana (most are rather generic, but a few have key phrases changed that give some significant insight into their characters).
Favourites ended up being: Saizo, Takumi, Leo, Shura, Laslow and Hinata, with surprise option Azama (I still do NOT like Azama, but if you DO, you won’t regret marrying him if you haven’t already).
Would definitely be devoted to Corrin. S-rank is rather sweet. Terrible father, but dialogue with Kana is amusing. My Room lines: Well-delivered. Saccharine sweet. Jakob’s model is one of the better ones. Go for Jakob if: - Master/servant roles are your thing. - You’re immune to faux-British accents. - You fantasize about stepping in to rescue Dwyer from his ass of a father.
Corrin does rather tease Kaze, but she cries out of joy in their S-rank, so good case to be made for mutual feelings. Kaze would be a good father. Dialogue with Kana, though, is generic. My Room lines: I think Kaze’s supposed to sound all hesitant and shy, but instead he sounds utterly bored. Room model is well-drawn. Go for Kaze if: - You want an actual, genuine nice guy. - Wouldn’t mind him falling asleep mid-conversation.
Despite claiming not to be arrogant, Subaki is actually arrogant in S-rank. Would be far too competitive with Kana. Great My Room model, however his arrogance extends to his My Room lines. Not nearly as sweet as imagined. Go for Subaki if: You like to feel perpetually inadequate.
S-rank not convincing; Silas destined to remain (disputable) best friend. Probably prefers Lord Corrin. My Room: Model okay. Lines forgettable. So nice he apparently doesn’t even mind being slapped awake. SO NICE, did I mention he’s NICE. Go for Silas if: You want most generic, blandest romance ever. You have a teenaged boy’s viewpoint of what it means to be a nice guy.
S-rank short, but amusing. Never removes his mask. Kisses must be cold. My Room: Well-delivered lines, possibly 2nd best VA. Corrin learns he likes to be tickled; also is apparently rather demanding of his time. Gruff-personality-hiding-actual-shyness trope nicely played. Kana dialogue is amusing. Wouldn’t be best father. Go for Saizo if: You want to learn all a ninja’s most embarrassing secrets.
S-rank actually alright up until the part where he ‘trick-proposes’ to Corrin. Less of a jerk to Corrin than to most. All but his kiss lines are surprisingly sweet, would probably be actual good husband. Dialogue with Kana also surprisingly sweet. We learn Azama does more for Corrin than her other husbands. Never opens his eyes. Definitely elevated him as a character in my eyes (although I’m still not a fan overall). Go for Azama if: You already don’t mind him as a character, because quite a bit of effort went into his marriage to Corrin by the writers.
The worst. The S-rank is pretty good, even great, then it’s all downhill from there. Awful My Room model. Awful My Room lines. Feel as if writers intended to punish anyone daring to marry Hayato. No, seriously, I was prepared to give him a shot, but he is the literal worst. Couldn’t even finish this one. Dialogue with Kana is generic. Go for Hayato if: You really dislike Corrin. Or yourself.
Amusing S-rank. Like that both get so embarrassed that Corrin actually runs away. Literal puppy. Very excitable. Good My Room model and lines delivered very appropriately. Played for an entire game and did not regret. Makes you mother of best Pickle son. Like that he cops to not being romantic at all. Suits being Kana’s father. Go for Hinata if: You want straight-forward fun.
Stealing him from Oboro and I don’t care. S-rank is eh at first (and he actually shares lines with both Ryoma and Hinoka) but it ends on a rather sweet note. My Room model is not great; bothered by his neck. But VA is so great; lines perfectly delivered. Least awkward to listen to. Has only sensible reaction to you blowing on his face. My Castle lines are full of positive affirmations. Actual sweetheart. My Room lines are tinged with mild insecurity. Kana and Kiragi suit being siblings best, in my opinion; both visually and character-wise.
Decent S-rank, though Kaden is rather… effusive. Lots of very affectionate, love-dovey lines. Great My Room model. Mildly concerning written lines lead one to wonder just how nice Corrin is in return. Generic dialogue with Kana; doesn’t quite suit Kaden to be his father. Kana apparently grows and sheds a fox tail at will. Go for Kaden if: You want ~~cuuuuutee~~
Surprisingly good S-rank. Like that Corrin takes some initiative. Never takes off that chin armour. My Room lines are decent (with below exception), and well-delivered. Does have the line, 'kiss me, you fool’ (while in chin armor, no less), so minus 100 points right there. Better husband than I expected. Dialogue with Kana is generic. Go for Ryoma if: You want one of the more stable characters. To be queen of Hoshido.
Good S-rank. Corrin seems to like Shura as much as he likes her. Good-looking My Room model. Well-delivered lines. Another actual sweetheart. Comes across as a decent father in his Kana dialogue. Has saddest face if you slap him awake. Definitely one of Corrin’s strongest and best potential husbands. Go for Shura if: You want an all-round decent guy.
A very Arthuresque S-rank. Poor Arthur. Corrin a little mean. So gimmicky. Lines are exceedingly well-delivered… for his character, of course. Can not take seriously. Sweet My Room lines… but, it’s Arthur. Very amusing dialogue with Kana. Go for Arthur if: You want the good joke option.
Poor Odin; Corrin is definitely mean in their S-rank. My Room: Decent lines, not too over-the-top. Sweet level-up (big heart) rank line. Best, most unique Kana dialogue (perhaps with exception of Izana). Decent delivery of lines. Corrin would probably not be the best wife. Go for Odin if: You really like Odin, and long for more of his unique way of speaking.
S-rank is okay; surprisingly bland. Nowhere near as much bite as you’d expect. My Room lines surprisingly generic. Somewhat sweet, but mainly forgettable. Sounds as if a LOT of his characterization was lost in translation, which marriage to him bears out.
Laslow: Saccharine S-rank. Not normally my thing but for some reason I have a soft spot for Inigo/Laslow. Adorable My Room model. Voice like molten honey. Not a great match with Lady Corrin, though? I feel as if he (and Odin) are better matches for the other ladies. Generic dialogue with Kana until the last line, and aaaah. Such a smoothie. Classic romantic. Go for Laslow if: You want your insecurity with a dash of tragedy.
Corrin is as mean to him in their S-rank as she is to Odin. Lay off these precious muffins, Corrin. Surprisingly bland post-marriage lines. Feels as if the writers didn’t expect anyone to really choose Benny. Dialogue with Kana is similarly generic. My Room model could look a lot worse. Bit of a joke option; not as …unique as Arthur, but can’t quite take Benny seriously as a husband. Go for Benny if: You really like Benny as he is pre-marriage, because the marriage isn’t changing much.
Perhaps the best-written S-rank in the entire game. It’s so great. You can really hear his inner turmoil. The agony. It’s beautiful. My Room model is great. Post-marriage lines are… somewhat awkward. Also, awkward VA. To be fair, it is REALLY hard to deliver the word 'lovely’ unironically (and I should know, I’m a Brit) in a sentence. Is a let-down as a father to Forrest, although he does redeem himself. Generic Kana dialogue. Go for Leo for: That S-rank.
S-rank is amusing. Would treat Corrin as an actual treasure. Actually bites, unlike Niles. My Room model and VA are both decent. As with Kaden, does not really suit being Kana’s father, especially re. tail. Kana dialogue is rather generic. Go for Keaton if: You really like tails…but Kaden is too lovey-dovey for you.
Touching concern for being a good husband to Corrin. Very sweet lines. Definitely less self-assured than Ryoma. Even sleeps with a frown. Comes across as needier than expected. VA is only slightly awkward. My Room model is decent. For all his concern, believes sparring with Corrin makes her happy? Pfft. Go for Xander if: You want your knight in shining armour.
One of the things I like about Rick and Morty- particularly about Rick, is the stuttering.
I know, i know, a lot of its because the show is improvised, they didn’t put it in on purpose, but still!
I like that Rick has a stutter.
I has a stutter and it’s hard for me to talk through it sometimes. And people do stutter every now and then in typical conversation. But in movies, books, and other media, all the lines are delivered perfectly, unless stuttering is necessary for that character. And usually, when a character has a stutter, that’s all that character is, their stutter.
(Looking at that one guy from Harry Potter)
Rick has a stutter, but it’s a part of his character, it’s not the only thing he is.
And now, to finish off the series as he always does, the other half of the Busan line, the half cheetah half bunny maknae, Jeon Jungkook aka kookie
Backstory time bc I have got a plan for this !!!!!
You two meet when your groups collaborate
You know how they did that commercial with Gfriend and they did one with Jessi as well
That’s where you two would meet
It would be a commercial for something, both of your groups showing up bright and early much to many people’s complaints
Okay so here’s the thing
Jungkook isn’t shy but kookie is
We all know there’s a big difference between confident “I’m a man” Jungkook we see on stage and “I literally just planted an umbrella and am playing with rocks” kookie
So on camera, kook has no issues with talking to you, delivering his lines perfectly and all of that
But off camera he’s hiding behind Jin bc of all the groups in the world, they had to choose the one group that has a member he’s got a crush on
Like if it was anyone else, he could be somewhat okay but no it’s you who he’s been crushing on since your debut
He still remembers the one time that you two accidentally bumped into each other on stage and he felt guilty for like a week
Bc even though he hadn’t been paying attention and was laughing at something Taehyung was doing, he still felt bad that he was literally walked straight into you
So when you two are on break, he goes over to you and starts apologizing his lil heart out
You’re so ??? bc did you miss something did something happen while filming what’s happening
He explains that he had bumped into you during a show a few weeks ago and just wanted to apologize and that he hoped you weren’t pissed off at him
You kinda just have to laugh bc he’s so cute ?? like of course I’m not mad it was an accident chill out dude
He gets a lil shy smile on his face when you laugh bc he likes your laugh and he likes knowing he’s the one that caused it
Throughout the filming, he loosens up a ton and is talking to you in between takes
The boys are just watching bc this is gonna be great material to tease him with later on so they gotta pay attention
Bc kookie is just giving you these shy smiles and can’t keep his eyes off you and it’s just all really really really cute and sweet lil bby kook
You two exchange numbers before you leave and he just about screams
He does scream once you’ve left bc obviously he can’t just scream right in front of you as you give him your number
But little does he know, you’re just as !!! the second you get to the car bc holy shit did that really just happen
You two start off as friends for a while but literally everybody knows that won’t last too long
Your members, his members, your stylists, his stylists, anyone that sees the way you two interact are just placing bets on how long it’ll take for you two to jump from platonic to really really not platonic at all
Spoiler it takes a month
Another spoiler, Yoongi and Namjoon win the bet bc they were the closest
There’s a lot of texting between you two for the entire month, it’s a daily thing
Like you get really excited when you wake up bc you know you’re gonna have a text from him and he gets the same way and the members are just planning away at how they’re gonna tease you bc theRE IS SO MUCH MATERIAL
Whenever you two see at each other at shows, you both get so :D
He walks up to you after one show, as you’re packing up and getting ready to go
He’s super nervous and you can tell bc he’s rubbing the back of his neck and he won’t look up from his shoes
“Hey do you wanna sneak out and go get something to eat with me?? Like as a date maybe but nah nah it’s okay if it isn’t a date jk gotta blast bye”
You agree though bc you’ve been considering how you should ask him out but him asking you out works perfectly too
Jungkook would probably be really good at keeping the relationship hidden but also horrible at it
Like there are a few slip ups here and there but they’re kinda big slip ups
“Last night, I went to get some ice cream with my babe…who’s obviously Jin duh”
Most people know it isn’t Jin but he tried to cover it up that’s good enough
But besides the occasional slip ups, no one has a single clue that he isn’t single
The most evidence they’d have is the fact that you two happen to wear similar looking beanies (it’s actually the same beanie but it’s black so it’s kinda a stretch if someone points it out)
You two do have matching necklaces though
They don’t match in an obvious way, like you don’t have the same necklaces but they go together
It’s like a lil secretive way of showing you two are together without making it super obvious
He can be seen in the background of Bangtan bombs watching something on his phone and most people assume it’s like a performance they’d done or maybe a show of some sort but it’s actually your group’s videos
Bc he’d lowkey be a huge fanboy which tbh he isn’t very lowkey about at all
His favorite place to go on those late night dates is the park
Bc no one’s there, it’s just you two and you can either be romantic and just stroll through the park or you can be playful and play on the swings or the slides or whatever else they have at that particular park
The park does change though, depending on which one’s the closest and emptiest
He’d probably take the longest to reveal the relationship
It’d take like three years bc I feel like he’d want his personal life to be private but he also gets tired of having to sneak around everywhere
He’d announce it through his company but he’d also post a video to confirm it
He wouldn’t say anything in the video but he just shows your hand holding onto his as you two are chilling and watching some anime or a show
@edmundtrash said: Edmund x Reader at college. Tons of fluff.
“Mr. Pevensie and Ms. (Y/L/N), I’m pleased to announce that you’ve been selected to play Pyramus and Thisbe,” the professor of Acting 101 announced with a smile. It was the final play of the semester and if the class’s suspicion was correct, their teacher had been favoring the two kids all year. (Y/N) and Edmund were seated next to each other in the front row and she elbowed him lightly.
“Why did I feel like this would happen?” she leaned into him and whispered.
“Because you’re not oblivious to how badly Mr. Robinson has been rooting for us to get together,” Edmund chuckled. (Y/N) blushed and shook her head. They liked each other, but they needed a push.
The chemistry between the two was unbelievable. In the auditorium when they had time to practice a scene, the class fell silent and watched their acting. Edmund put his heart into delivering every line and (Y/N) matched him perfectly. And, of course, the kisses had to be practiced.
“Make us believe you’re in love with her, Pevensie,” Mr. Robinson had said before their very first kiss. Edmund had done his best but it was a very awkward kiss. How was he supposed to kiss the girl he liked without making her horribly uncomfortable? Both kids were blushing so hard everyone else in the class felt bad for them.
However, by the end of the third day practicing the kiss, there was no more blushing. In fact, Edmund had taken it upon himself to grab (Y/N) by the waist and pull her close. (Y/N) had her arms around his neck and kissed him with everything she had. The scene was the new class favorite. Mr. Robinson even gave them a standing ovation with the whole class following. Edmund bowed and (Y/N) did a curtsey before they rushed off stage hand in hand.
“I feel bad I’ve been kissing you without ever taking you on a date,” Edmund said on a Friday as they packed up to leave.
“That’s easy to change,” (Y/N) grinned. She tucked a strand of hair behind her ear and slung her bag over her shoulder.
“Coffee?” Edmund was proud of himself for getting the courage to finally ask.
“Sounds wonderful.” She bumped her shoulder with his as they walked outside.
No one in class knew they had a date over the weekend. They did know, though, that their scenes on Monday were out of this world.
I think I just spent a good 5 minutes staring at that slowed set of gifs from the Henry V kiss....*sigh* I LOVE that kiss. One of the best on screen kisses ever imho. So romantic, so sexy. Also I have to say as a short person I really like that they didn't have her standing on a giant box to get rid of the massive height difference between them. Instead they worked with the height difference which gave us that lovely finger under the chin moment.
The Henry V kiss.
Let’s start at the very beginning, shall we?
First of all, he goes from giving the daggers look in the Dauphin’s direction
to the fidgety OH GOSH NOW I AM ALONE WITH THE PRINCESS AND WHAT IF SHE DOESN’T LIKE ME mode…
He goes from Conquering King to Nervous Boy in a flash. In spite of the terrible textual butchering and editing (with obvious continuity errors), Hiddleston played that scene with the perfect blend of nervousness, earnestness, gentleness, affection, and humor. He portrays an adorable air of being tentative in the sense that he realizes his power as King is completely useless because he can’t command her to love him even if her father can command her to marry him. That’s why I love that he took off the crown. And I say again, the farm line was delivered perfectly.
He’s so careful. He’s so careful not just in the manner of his speech, but in how he is moving. He isn’t being pushy or impatient, he isn’t belittling her feelings. He appears to be genuinely concerned about her consent in the marriage, which is important considering that such marriages were all about power and politics and women were basically spoils of war. There’s a whole theory about how Shakespeare used the treatment of women throughout his plays as a sort of indicator of the general tone and final result, that the women are usually ill treated in the tragedies or use whatever power they have for the wrong reasons, whereas it is much different in the comedies. I think this scene in Henry V is even more interesting when placed in the greater context of Shakespeare’s work. I don’t recall anything specific that Hiddleston said about it, but he has talked in the past about how unique Much Ado is in that respect because we see Beatrice fighting for the falsely accused Hero and her conviction of Hero’s innocence causes Benedick to support that cause and he goes against the Prince in that matter. So. I can’t help but wonder what he was thinking about when he decided how to approach the scene in Henry V.
Okay. The kiss itself.
It’s lovely. Perfectly lovely.
The hesitation before.
THE CURLS ON HIS NECK.
The fingers under the chin.
The nervous swallowing.
How he can’t quite look at her right after.
THE CURLS ON HIS NECK.
How he sort of swoops down.
It’s sweetly ardent and youthful.
And did I mention the curls on his neck?
Notice that he doesn’t grip her chin or hold her to his body or do anything to inhibit her freedom of movement. She can pull away whenever she wants.
Plus, he glances up to her eyes.
And then the way he looks at her when her father returns, like he wants to gobble her up. *swoon*
(A/N) This is my first ever Snowbarry fic (well, actually my first The Flash fic), so please let me know how I did, if I got the characters personalities down, the usual. I also have an idea for a Iris/Caitlin fic so I might write that too, depending if I’m in the mood.
The first time she’d seen him, she hadn’t thought much of him. He was just another customer coming into the ice cream parlor, albeit an extremely clumsy one.
Plot; Continuation to ‘Devil’s Backbone’. Frank stops coming to the reader after their kiss but then one day, there’s a knock at the door.
Warnings; Swearing, kinda heats up towards the end but it’s only kissing because i’m lazy and haven’t actually finished writing the smut (which will be the third part to this lil series)
Note; I figured I’d continue the theme of The Civil War songs and Dust to Dust is another which goes perfectly so yeah. This has been sitting in my drafts for roughly 3 weeks because it was meant to be smut but I felt it was concluded pretty well and it can easily be continued with smut in a separate part so that’s what I shall do!
We’re in the underground folks! So as Martin happily rides his worm friend, Chris has to go by foot through the dirt. Means he’s trailing behind, but hey he’s holding up well enough. Sure he gets a drop of water stuck on his head, but hey it helps him realize that the dirt soaks the water up. But man I just love how Chris tries to point this out and Martin just teases him about mumbling. His ‘Not listening to a mumbler~” line in the sing-sing voice is just delivered sooo perfectly. Also just Chris’ smirk. It’s like he’s telling the audience ‘Just you guys wait, I’m gonna get him back. Soon.” It’s just so perfect~
ok so i saw hamilton almost a month ago (9/29/16) and it’s taken me this long to formulate my thoughts because i just have so much to say and frankly i couldn’t emotionally process it
this isn’t a review but i did talk a lot about the changes from the OBC (i’ve never seen it in NYC so i’m going off of what i know from the OBCR and released clips), also i saw literally the 3rd time the chicago cast performed for an audience, technically before opening night (previews), so keep that it mind
it’s. Really long so i organized everything by song and bolded the really important stuff / what i think you’ll find most interesting. i may try and cull it down a bit more to do a more coherent review but for now you can just browse through my ramblings
Okay so hear me out. Could you do something where Reaper, and Soldier 76 (not poly) are on an undercover mission with another agent, who they are not in a relationship with. Eventually the people they're following get suspicious, so the agent tells them to kiss them because "public displays of affection are known to make people uncomfortable, and before Reaper/76 can object, the agent just pulls them into a kiss. That is all. Feel free to ignore if you'd like though!
Now I have to go rewatch Winter Soldier. (Actually I already did, just so I could get to that scene and listen to Chris Evans perfectly delivering that line of “Yes, they do.” with that unspoken “They do, Natasha, and that’s why you don’t ask to snog your friend and coworker out of the blue.”) Anyway here have Captain America Soldiier 76 and Reaper with this wonderful scenario.
Hello there! The Noragami Voices here with a new challenge for the Noragami fandom! Being a voice actor is hard work, and for every perfectly delivered line, there’s bound to be a good amount of cursing and mess ups involved.
So the goal is this: we’re making a Noragami Actor AU blooper reel, but we want to get the Noragami fandom involved! All you have to do is reblog this post and write down your best blooper idea.
Example → “Yato: Hello! Thank you for calling! Fast, affordable, and…and…dammit. Line?”
After one week (ending on August 4th), we’ll go through your submissions and pick the best to put in our blooper reel. You’ll get to hear your own headcanon voiced by our amazing actors. So have fun, and may your wishes be heard loud and clear!
A talent for the dramatic-Thoughts on MFMM S1 ep 6 Ruddy Gore
I love this episode. This is probably my first ‘favourite’
episode, if that makes sense. By now I was well and truly invested in the Jack
and Phryne relationship and whilst we’d been thrown crumbs in the episodes
prior to this, this was the first to actually take it that step further into
physical contact. Oh the delight of the hand to Jack’s chest as Phryne tries to
convince him to allow her to stay and investigate, be still my beating heart as
he holds her after she swings the lump of wood. Who knew a tuxedo could ever
look so good. Even the thorn of Lin could not dampen my enthusiasm for this
But I’m getting ahead of myself, let’s go back and enjoy some
of the delights this ep has to offer.
First the exchange in the box. I must admit, I’m not
completely sure if Jack was a last minute addition to the party at the theatre.
When I first watched the episode, I assumed that Jack and Hugh had both been
invited and Hugh couldn’t attend due to his constabulary duties. But then
somebody suggested that Jack had taken Hugh’s ticket and I got all confused. I
really hope they were both invited. Kind of makes it like a double date then
and I like that idea very much and so that is how I shall choose to interpret
it. Regardless, Jack is in the box and I love his frustration at trying to
follow the plot line. “So wait, now she’s in love with him?”. Phryne
just has that lovely all-knowing smile.
Jack is so frustrated by the storyline
that he doesn’t catch on at first that Walter Copland has died on
stage-literally. But it doesn’t take him long to take charge and even Phryne’s
well placed hand can’t convince him to let her stay.
Let’s just take a moment here to appreciate the beauty of
“Actors Jack, you need somebody who understands their
language and I speak fluent thespian”
“Ah. I’ll stumble through. Thanks all the same”.
This is followed soon after by Jack’s interception of Phryne
at Gwilym’s door. “Ah, Miss Fisher has to leave”. His slight tilt of the head,
so beautifully balancing hers, acts to underline his intentions. He will not be
swayed. But that’s all right because Phryne knows there’s more than one way to
skin a cat.
Fast forward to Jack and Phryne entering the theatre in the
midst of rehearsals.
Phryne is asked to stand in and we see playful Jack surface. “I thought you didn’t like operetta” Phryne challenges, to which he joyfully replies “I do now”.
This scene is also the first time I recall Phryne handing
her bag to Jack.
I like this bit of intimacy. It ties back to the knowing look
she gives him at the start of the episode when he complains about the
storyline. They are in many respects like a married couple, in tune with one
another. Heaven forbid-there I’ve said it and I’ll stand by it too even though
many will flail their arms in dismay and interpret it as meaning that Phryne’s
independence is undermined by her relationship with Jack (which I don’t think
it is, but that’s an argument for a different post).
And while we’re at it, let’s just let the beauty of these two in each other’s
arms speak for itself.
There’s some conjecture between fans over the scene in the
laneway where Jack is escorting Phryne home only to have her whisked out from
under his nose by Lin.
Some see him as sad as he watches her walk away. I view
it more as resignation that Phryne will always have the last say when it comes
to what she does. He may not like it, but I think he accepts it.
Besides, he gets his little dig in about the relationship
soon after. “No, no I’m questioning your
taste in men”.
I love the way she flounces out after deriding him for his “talent for the dramatic”. I’m not sure if it can be classed as jealousy, after all,
Jack would never be bold enough to make claims on Miss Fisher at this stage in
their relationship, but it is a sign that she is under his skin and he’s none
too happy about who she associates with. This is one of those moments that
scratch the surface of their relationship and we get to see deeper. In this
series, Jack is still very reserved but every now and then the passion that
runs as deep as the Pacific Ocean surfaces. The eye roll at the end of the
scene from Jack once again supports my old married couple theory.
But it is the promise of great things to come that is
delivered in those beautiful lines at the end that cements this as one of my
favourite episodes. And Jack delivers those lines perfectly.
embarrassment here, he holds her eye and delivers the last line almost as a challenge.
Other women cloy the appetites they feed
but she makes hungry where most she satisfies
He is acknowledging that he is falling under her spell but
he is fully aware of what he is dealing with. NP’s delivery really is perfect in this scene and Phryne responds accordingly, the previous joyfulness replaced with appropriate seriousness. Both understand what is being said here.
But it is a fleeting moment in time, and Jack breaks the mood, offering her a hand to her feet. But this side of Jack has given Phryne food for thought and it is reflected in her look back over her shoulder at him as they exit
the stage in separate directions. It shows that she is not immune to him
either. And we the audience invest ourselves just that little bit more in their
A/N: Y/N becomes insecure about her weight and her boyfriend, Niall, finds out…
It is a lazy Sunday for you and Niall. You stay inside watching a movie, cuddling on the couch with a bowl of greasy popcorn. Niall’s arms are wrapped around your waist and you are leaning up against his chest, his chin resting on top of your head as you binge watch comedy films. You mindlessly nibble on the snack while keeping your eyes glued to the screen, laughing along with Niall as your favorite actors deliver perfectly timed lines.
You continue eating, not noticing how much you have consumed until you reach for another piece, only to realize the bowl is empty. Niall has barely eaten any, which means you have finished off the entire bowl. Upset, you think about the fact that he has skinny legs and abs and you don’t. I wonder why, you ask yourself sarcastically, though you know the answer: he’s not the one who eats like a pig and lays around all day. I’m fat. I’m fat I’m fat I’m fat and I need to fix it.
Niall chuckles at a funny scene. “I love this part,” he says, smiling at the TV. You have to fight the tears threatening to roll down your cheeks. Niall can’t know about this. No one can. I got myself into this, and I’m going to get myself out. “Yeah,” you agree halfheartedly. “It’s a good one.”
The following day, you and Niall visit your local coffee shop for lunch. He has already eaten his meal, but you still have some left on your plate. “You gonna finish that, babe?” Niall asks, pointing at your leftovers. “Um… No, I’m full,” you lie. He leans over, picks up one of your French fries, and pops it in his mouth. “You sure? These fries are the shit."
"I’m sure,” you say, a fake smile plastered on your face.
“Our dinner reservations are for 7:00, so we should probably start getting ready now,” Niall suggests, looking at his phone for the time. You nod and make your way upstairs while he stays behind to throw your beers away and tidy up.
You remove your little red dress from the closet then take off your shirt in one swift motion. As you lower your jeans to the floor, your eyes wander to the mirror, and suddenly, you can’t look away. You throw your pants aside and slowly get up, taking in your appearance.
Standing in just a bra and underwear, you study your body meticulously. You have been skipping meals left and right in a vain attempt to lose weight. You have shed a few pounds, but not enough to be noticeable, to your disappointment. You look yourself up and down disapprovingly. Your eyes drop to your stomach, which has been your problem area since the start. Turning to the side, you keep your eyes locked on your belly. I’m so fucking fat. You grab the skin between your fingers, angry at yourself, and squeeze until the pressure causes your eyes to sting.
Just then, you hear Niall’s voice from the doorway. “Y/N?” he says in a soft tone, taking in the scene. “Niall,” you say, panicked, frantically trying to cover your exposed body with the dress you had left on the floor. “I thought you were picking up downstairs."
"I finished a while ago. You’ve been up here for a half an hour, so I thought I should check on you."
"How long have you been standing there?” You ask nervously. He walks over to you and takes the dress from your hands. You let out a small cry and reach for it, but he tosses it back on the floor. "Long enough to see you looking at your body like it’s something the cat dragged in.“
He puts his hands on your waist, but you wriggle out of his grasp and fold your arms defensively over your stomach. "Niall…"
"Darling, what have you been doing up here?" He furrows his brow. "Why were you looking at the mirror like that?"
You lower your gaze to your feet. "I-I’m fat.” You say, tears rimming your eyes. “You’re what?” He gives you a quizzical stare.
You lift your head and meet his gaze. “I’m fat.” You say more confidently. “My stomach will never be flat like other girls’ and I’ve been skipping meals to fix it and I don’t know what to do anymore."
You’re crying now, a flood of tears pouring down your cheeks. "I mean, just look at me,” you spit, and stomp to the mirror. More tears drop to the floor as you grab skin between your fingers and show it off relentlessly, while Niall silently watches from a distance.
“Princess,” he whispers delicately, “look at me."
You do as he says, and cry harder when you see the heartbreak in his big blue eyes. "I’m so sorry, Niall, I don’t want to hurt you, or anyone. This isn’t your problem.” He places his hands on your waist again, but holds you tight so you can’t get away this time. He massages your skin with his thumbs as he speaks, trying to calm you down.
“First of all, you’re not fat; I don’t know where you got that idea. What you are is pretty and lovely and amazing, and I love you,” he assures, and plants a kiss on your forehead. “Second, no matter what it looks like, you should love your body. I know I do."
He takes you by the hand and leads you to the bed, where he lays you on your back. "Niall, please, at least let me put on some clothes,” you plead, fully aware of how exposed you are. He shakes his head. “No, I like you like this. If you can’t see how incredibly gorgeous you are, I’ll just have to show you."
Niall places his hands on either side of your breasts, then caresses downward to your hips, making sure to trace every curve. His gentle touch leaves you tingly.
"Beautiful,” he says.
He kneels down and leans toward you so that his warm breath tickles your skin. Turning your chin with a finger so you are forced to look at him, he says,“You are more beautiful than you’ll ever know, darling. I swear it.” He places sloppy kisses on your stomach, making you giggle.
“And,” he says between kisses, “I especially love your stomach. I love the way it feels when I’m hugging you or kissing you and when I wrap my arms around it, and when I do this…"
He blows a messy raspberry into your skin. By now your crying has been replaced by laughter and you kick at him playfully. He flops onto the bed beside you and holds you close. "Never feel like you need to change, and definitely don’t skip meals, princess. Fill your cute little belly as much as you need. You’re perfect the way you are; any fool can see that. Except for this one apparently.” He chuckles and flicks your nose with his finger.
He beams when you give him an annoyed look. “There she is,” he says, and a smile creeps on your face. “Thanks, Niall,” you sigh.
“I love you darlin. Now why don’t you put on some clothes so we can go eat?"
