the machinist'

10

There’s something to say about actors who lose an extreme amount of weight to play a role in a film. To become so thin that they look emaciated and close to dying, to be weak and irritable from the lack of food, and loosing whatever previous muscle tone they once had indicates an unflaggible dedication to their craft. To put their bodies on the line for the sake of realism so that we filmgoers can watch their deteroration happen before our eyes on the big screen and know that it’s quite possibly the only non artificial thing in the entire film shows a true passion for their art.

(Sir Lancealot) UR ALL JUST JEALOUS 

omfg I’m never drawing ffxiv armour again, anyways this is a silly thing from my FFXIV au; if you’ve never played, Lance is just ribbing Keith for doing less damage than usual, since they have a friendly top DPS rivalry. Lance is an elezen machinist and Keith is an au ra dragoon. Both those gearsets are glamours I’ve used in the past haha.  I’m dead.
