the wizard of oz movie is one of my all time favorites

some stuff that I love/think is neat in The Wizard of Oz book, that was left out of the movie/almost every re-make

Don’t get me wrong, I really like the 1939 movie cause it’s colorful and pretty, the songs are awesome, and it’s a hollywood classic. However, these are just some things that I loved in the book, but everyone ignores since they weren’t in the 1939 version. 

Dorothy:

In the book she’s a very little girl, around 8-10, and I always liked that, and I’ll always see her as a little girl. Judy Garland was a really good Dorothy, but she was still a teenager. I know it was made over 70 years ago but I still think they should have cast Shirley Temple like they were planning. 

The witches:

In the original book, The good witch of the north, and Glinda the good with of the south, are two different characters. The witch of the north is the one who gives Dorothy the silver slippers, and all she knows is that they’re magic. It’s Glinda who comes in at the end and tells Dorothy she can use them to get home. It makes a whole lot more sense than Glinda knowing what they can do the whole time.(Also I really like Wicked and want to see it live eventually, but in my mind it’s basically it’s own thing)

Nick Chopper: 

The tin woodsman has a backstory! A really good one that ties in with the rest of the story. He used to be a regular man named Nick Chopper and he was engaged to a munchkin girl, but the lady who the girl worked for didn’t want her to get married. So she made a deal with the witch of the east and she enchanted his axe. His axe ended up cutting off each of his limbs but he was helped out by Ku-Klip the tinsmith and he kept replacing his limbs. Eventually the axe cut off everything and he became the tin woodsman. He was so upset that he didn’t have a heart anymore that he felt like he couldn’t love his fiancee without one. 

His backstory is really cool and (won’t apologize for the pun) heartbreaking. It’s lame to me that it’s never really used, and it’s a shame because it gives him motivation to want a heart again. 

The Kalidahs:

These are super horrifying beasts that live in the Kalidah forest, and they litteraly kill and eat anything they can. I see people adding in a lot of beasts and characters into Oz to make it more scary and grown up, and I don’t see why you’d do that but leave these guys out. The run in with them is how we learn that The Cowardly Lion has courage, because he crosses a log bridge to get away from them even though he’s scared. 

The Emerald City isn’t made of Emerald:

Okay so this is way easier to do in a book or black and white comic than it is to do in a movie or tv show. But, in the book before anyone can see inside the city, they need to put on green glasses so the brightness of the emeralds won’t “hurt their eyes”. Then at the end when we find out about the Wizard, they take the glasses off and they(and the audience) learns that like the Wizard, the whole city is a sham. It’s not made of emerald, it’s all just white and plain. That part of the book had a really great lesson to /litteraly/ not look at the world through rose colored glasses. It’s probably one of my favorite things that get left out. 

Ozma and Dorothy are gay as hell:

Lookit these lesbians. Bein lesbian… Ozma(a cannon trans girl btw) doesn’t come into the picture until later books, and it takes a few years for Dorothy to come back to Oz but lookit these 1900s gays in these official illustrations. 

Oh, and Dorothy and the gang get rescued from the poppy field by a gang of field mice this is their queen:

Anyway, I do like the movie, and I love the Muppets version since they got a lot from the books. I just wish there was an adaptation that used the cannon stuff that’s neat instead of trying waaaayyyy hard to not be the 1939 movie. But it seems like the adaptations are just adaptations of the movie and don’t take anything from the books. Cause L Frank Baum wrote 14 of them with trolls, wheelers, frankenstein monsters, princesses, endless deserts where if any part of you touches it you turn to sand, more witches, sky fairies, and most importantly lesbian princess girlfriends! 

Old Dog, New Tricks: Part Three

Part One II Part Two

Summary: Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes were known to be your soldiers across the hall. Whenever you needed them, they were there. It never crossed your mind that one day, after coming to terms with just how inexperienced Bucky was with getting back in the groove of romance - you find yourself now helping him in a way you never expected. Sex.

Inside the super-sized Glee reunion on The Flash-Supergirl musical crossover

Darren Criss is singing his heart out. Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist are tap dancing. “It’s literally a Glee episode,” Gustin jokes. No, the Fox series hasn’t been revived. The trio are actually reuniting for the first time since their days on the Emmy-nominated hit series for a different kind of musical — and Criss may finally get his revenge.

His Glee character, Blaine Anderson, received a slushy facial from Gustin’s Sebastian Smythe back in 2012, but now the tables have turned, with Criss assuming the mantle of the dastardly DC Comics villain Music Meister in the highly anticipated Flash/Supergirl musical crossover. “It is funny that the last time I worked with Grant, he was the bad guy and he was singing at me, and now I’m the bad guy singing at him,” Criss says. Though it’s a different set, with the quick turnaround and prep, Criss concurs that this all feels familiar. “It’s just Glee,” he says.

In the March 21 episode of The Flash, Barry (Gustin) and Kara (Benoist) find themselves trapped in a movie musical of the Meister’s creation — an hour that has been years in the making. “We’ve always talked about doing it, from the very beginning, more in a joking way,” says executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. Gustin, however, was initially curious. “I didn’t ever think it would be a real thing, so when they told me it was real, I was like, ‘How?!‘”

Here’s how: As the Scarlet Speedster and Girl of Steel experience turmoil in their interpersonal relationships, they’re whammied by the Music Meister, a less mustache-twirling, more manipulative villain who causes victims to break into song. The character was famously voiced by Neil Patrick Harris in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold animated series. “I have made a pretty decent career of only taking over roles as made famous by child stars,” jokes Criss, who also played the titular wizard in the Harry Potter musical.

“I could not be happier that he’s here,” gushes Benoist, whose Glee character Marley Rose was mentored by Blaine. “He’s killing this role. He’s bringing such a fun energy, the way he did on Glee as well.”

Being fans of movie musicals as kids, the power-stripped heroes end up trapped in a golden-age send-up involving rival gangs and their kids falling in love — though expect many of the couples to come with a twist. The only way out? Follow the Meister’s script till the end. It may be a prison to them, but it’s heaven to Benoist. Noting she was born in the wrong era, the actress takes delight in the vintage ambience while sitting on a ’40s-era nightclub set. “Not that I don’t love the [Supergirl] suit, but it just feels good playing the same character in a completely different setting,” she says. “I’m eating this up.”

The Glee alums aren’t the only big names attached to the special episode. In a nod to Kara’s favorite film Wizard of Oz, everyone else in the vocally impressive cast is playing a character within this movie, from Jesse L. Martin, Victor Garber, and John Barrowman as rival mob bosses to Jeremy Jordan’s club pianist and Carlos Valdes’ aspiring artist busboy. Cherry-picking the movie musical genre — West Side Story, Singing in the Rain, and Guys and Dolls among the show’s inspirations — the hour also features some original songs, including “Runnin’ Home to You” from Oscar-winning La La Land duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, as well as the bubbly and playful Rachel Bloom co-penned tap duet “Super Friend.” “It’s a goofy song and it’s very consistent with that style of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” Gustin says.

“We were approached by Rachel Bloom, who reached out to us and she really wanted to write a song for us,” Kreisberg explains. “And Greg [Berlanti] had a relationship with Pasek and Paul, so we sat down with them — we hadn’t even seen La La Land with them, but Greg had been such huge fans of theirs.”

The episode also includes several covers, among them the Benoist solo “Moon River,” and an ensemble performance of Jackie DeShannon’s “Put a Little Love in Your Heart” that brings the denizens of the ’40s nightclub to their feet as the Meister conducts Jordan, Valdes, and John Barrowman in an epic, upbeat dance number choreographed by Glee’s Zachary Woodlee. “Some things are just star-crossed,” Valdes says of his two worlds — superheroes and musicals — colliding. “Some things are just destined and written in the stars. This felt like one of those instances where it was just something that was going to happen.”

Jordan concurs: “Ever since they announced the cast of our show — plus the casts of Flash and other shows having so many musical theater people in them — it was only a matter of time before they harnessed those talents and made something into it.”

All involved have unquestionable talents when it comes to singing, but Barrowman says the DeShannon piece doesn’t play to his strengths: “I’m exceptionally confident vocally, but they show me the dance steps and I’m not a hip-hopper, no way,” says Barrowman, who practices his moves on set between takes. “I panicked.” Still, Barrowman was determined to be involved once he learned of the crossover. “I hadn’t heard anything and I just basically then said, ‘I think you would be daft or stupid not to have me in this, really,‘” he says. “But they planned on it all along.”

On the flip side, Gustin says he was excited about slipping back into his dance shoes. “More than anything else, my true foundation was tap dance,” the actor says. “It’s been cool to get back to it.” Adds Benoist: “It’s funny how things stay in your muscle memory. It was fun to pick it back up again and see your body and be like, ‘Oh, we remember how to do this.'”

With everyone in one room, Barrowman admits, “I’m a bit fan-boying out to be honest,” explaining that he watched his castmates’ former projects Glee and Smash. “What a nerd,” Jordan responds upon hearing the news. “He plays it super cool backstage, so you wouldn’t know he was geeking out.”

Beyond Glee, the hour marks an even bigger reunion as Gustin and Supergirl‘s Chris Wood — who, along with co-star David Harewood, will guest in the crossover, but not sing — went to school together, while Criss counts Valdes, Pasek, and Paul as classmates. “It’s been a very sentimental crossover on so many levels,” Criss says. “Every day, every scene my mind is being blown. I can’t believe I’m here with Melissa Benoist and Carlos Valdes. ‘How do you guys even know each other? Oh, that’s right, you’re both superheroes!'”

Fun fact: Another classmate of theirs, Andy Mientus, also previously played a villain on The Flash, with Criss joking it’s about damn time he appeared in the Berlanti-verse. “I was wondering why everybody else I knew had been on the show but me,” Criss says with a laugh. In truth, Kreisberg says Criss was destined to play this role. “Darren so brings him to life,” the EP says. “I’m not sure who we would have gotten to do it if Darren had said no, but it turned out to be one of those things where we wanted Darren and Darren actually wanted the part. It was very kismet.”

Should the crossover prove successful, Kreisberg even has hopes for a sequel, and Criss would be elated to return to the wild, wild world of singing superheroes. “I would have liked to have written some songs,” quips the actor and musician, who landed the role too late in the process to do so. “I want to come back, I’m not done — then I’ll have my true payback!” Watch out, Flash!

The musical crossover will kick off at the end of Supergirl‘s March 20 hour, with the majority of the action taking place during The Flash‘s March 21 episode, both airing at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.

anonymous asked:

Hello, I love your work! Can I request headcannons Soldier76, Reaper and Mcree getting piss drunk and dancing seductively/with stripping for their reader crush?

Mmm Dunno what happened here. McCree was my favorite to write. Poor boys. Not even poor McCree can hold his liquor. And Reaper learned the hard way that you should not make bets with women.

Soldier 76: 

  • Doesn’t drink often
  • Not because he thinks drinking is stupid
  • As a man full of paranoia who spent a good chunk of years looking over his shoulder, he is always high on alert
  • Alcohol…does not help his thinking, nor his ability to handle being in battle
  • So this is the first time he’s drunk is a very, very long time
  • Did not mean to drink as much as he did
  • Started as one shot, turned to four shots, and by the time he hit 10 he’d lost count
  • Everyone was at a private club celebrating a victory against Talon 
  • You were sitting with him, giggling as you drank your third scotch. You weren’t really drunk, but it was fun to watch him. Despite being drunk, he didn’t slur a single syllable when he spoke, and he almost sounded sober
  • Except he was asking inappropriate questions of people or letting loose his thoughts of some people that usually he bottled up
  • Deciding to distract him before Soldier could find himself in a fight, you asked him to dance.
  • The two of you went out onto the dance floor, the music blaring and colorful lights flashing all around
  • The dancing was good at first, and your body moved with the rhythm of the music
  • Soldiers…didn’t
  • Your face went rather red when you felt his hands slide down your sides, pulling you in close to him to dance intimately and wildly together
  • You didn’t know how you felt about this, although you somewhat liked how his hands held your hips
  • Until he let go and you realized that he was starting to strip
  • “JACK!” you cried, barely heard over the music and you had to struggle to pull his hands away from the belt of his pants, having managed to strip off his shirt already
  • “It’s too hot in here!” he tried to yell over the music, struggling with you.
  • Finally he instead pulled you close and you found yourself pressed to the long, hard length of his body
  • It was kind of hard to breath. You’d never been so close to a male before
  • “Your really beautiful, did you know that?” he managed to yell over the music to you.
  • Face heating up as his body rubbed yours, still moving with the music, you couldn’t tell if he’d said it because he was drunk or because he meant it
  • When Angela and Ana saw that Jack had stripped off his shirt in the middle of the dance floor and was looking ready to rip off your clothes too, they intervened and convinced him to go home with Reinhardt to retire early
  • You decided drunk Soldier was a fun soldier 

Reaper:

  • Does not drink
  • Mostly because there is no fun in drinking for him anymore
  • The amount of alcohol he has to consume just to get drunk is astounding
  • And most alcohol just tastes downright terrible, so he just wasn’t in the mood of trying
  • Except then you challenged him. The deal was whoever gets drunk first has to be personal slave to the other for a day
  • For Reaper, the idea of you as his ‘slave’ sounded rather hot
  • You liked the idea of being able to command the great Reaper for a whole day
  • So in the end he agreed, figuring he would win since his cell’s usually didn’t died and regenerated too fast for the alcohol to make it through the blood stream
  • The two of you really went at it, and slowly he was growing more and more astonished with your alcohol tolerance
  • What he didn’t know was you were raised in a house hold of boys where drinking games were the top of the priority list
  • Reaper was the first one who slurred his words
  • “Thisss is ridiculousss,” he muttered, slamming a glass down on the table and glaring at you
  • He didn’t notice how he slowly seemed to sway back and forth a bit, as if unable to keep his balance even in the chair
  • “It is NOT,” you said, your voice thick. God, your stomach was not feeling good after so much liquor, and you could feel your body and mind growing heavy
  • But you had to stay aware to win the game
  • Your slavery-hood depended on it
  • A few more drinks and Reaper’s head was on the table, fuzzy
  • The two of you were hiccupping and giggling over the silliest things. Oh yes, Reaper was giggling. About normal, stupid things like how your sneeze was a loud little mouse squeak
  • Sombra later came in news for Reaper and first screamed, before cursing heavily in Spanish and covering her eyes. “What the FUCK are you DOING, GABE?!” she practically yelled.
  • You were giggling and clapping in a chair, and Reaper was doing a strip tease for you, dancing to Over the Rainbow in  the movie Wizard of Oz. 
  • Nothing has ever disturbed her as much as the sight she found there
  • Neither of you seemed to realize the issue, and it took Sombra an hour to convince both of you it was important for Reaper to put his clothes back on 
  • And that Over the Rainbow was a terrible song to use for a strip tease
  • When the two of you were eventually sober the next day, Reaper wouldn’t come out of his room for hours, remembering every painful second of his drunkness and the horrors that came with strip dancing in front of his crush
  • You won the drinking medal too.
  • You thoroughly enjoyed that day with him as your personal slave ;) 
  • Mostly because he spent his day in the sexy bunny suite

McCree:

  • Was the one who told you it’d be a good idea to go drinking
  • As a cowboy, whiskey is his love and life
  • Y’know, other then you of course
  • Not that you know that…. but he’s busy working on trying to get himself out of the friend zone.
  • Which is apparently difficult as hell
  • So the two of you are drinking and you end up caught in a game of poker
  • Jesse finds himself a part of a drinking gamble
  • At first he has to think about it. Chance getting drunk when he’s trying to impress you? Or impress you by winning AND getting money to go buy you pretty things?
  • Thus, the game ensued.
  • Thirty minutes later you go to search for Jesse, pretty proud of yourself for winning two-hundred dollars in poker when you started off with twenty.
  • You found him at the counter, slouched over at the counter, cheek on his arm
  • He was in a daze, and when you poked him he jolted up, looking like a startled filly
  • “Wha…oh….izzz you….Heyz darlin’…” he drawled, giving you what he thought was a seductive smile but was actually his face twitching into a wince
  • “My god, you drunk. I thought it almost impossible,” you said in amusement, crossing your arms.
  • Immediately the cowboy copied you, albeit sloppily. “Why do ya always look soooooooooooo serioussssssss,” Jesse drawled, accent thick and his words as sloppy as his posture
  • You rolled your eyes but suddenly he perked up and got off his stool
  • Taking your hand, he pulled you toward the dance floor
  • You were worried about whether he could stand upright even
  • “Lets dance, beautiful!” Jesse cried, and started to dance…except while the song was a slow song, he started jumping and bouncing about as if listening to heavy rock
  • “Jesse…maybe we should go home,” you said gently, touching his arm
  • God….so many people…were looking at the two of you…
  • Jesse whipped his hair around, losing his hat, before he looked back at you, blinking slowly
  • “Oh…..OH. I get it,” he said, managing a lazy, drunken smile. “You don’t want to rock it…you want me to dance…like that…”
  • Concern immediately filled your face. What was that going to be?
  • Suddenly Jesse made this weird face, like he was concentrating too much, before he slowly started toward you
  • You started to back up, but his steps were longer
  • Spinning, he turned, crouched and TWERKED
  • Fear rolled through you. Holy shit, what was going on
  • Jesse was unbuttoning his shirt slowly, playing with it as he danced and rubbed his butt against you
  • He bent over, as if literally asking you to slap his butt
  • “Jesse…I’m begging you…please…stop,” you said, already hurriedly dialing Ana for help
  • Jesse snatched the phone from you with a wicked, slow grin and you jumped, trying to get it
  • “You want it back, baby? Come get it!” he said, slipping it into his pants and underwear. “I know you want to!”
  • Faintly you could hear from the phone in his pants, “Hello?”
  • Jesse giggled. “Oops. I might have dialed Ana by accident. Hi mom!” he yelled at his pants. “Your in my underwear!!!” The whole bar was silently staring at you both in stunned silence
  • Enough was enough. 
  • 15 minutes later, the two of you were in a taxi on your way home. Jesse had passed out four seconds into getting put in the taxi. You had to tip the bartender $30 for Jesse’s screaming in the restaurant
  • You stroked the hair from his face,  his head in your lap, and you sighed.
  • You couldn’t figure out what on earth about this man appealed to you, but god only knows he did.
  • You refused to go drinking with him ever again though.

Note: THIS IS HALLOWEEN! THIS IS HALLOWEEN! HALLOWEEN HALLOWEEN, HALLOWEEN HALLOWEEN!

Warnings: None?

It was All Hallow’s Eve, a witchy night if there ever was one, and therefore, one of your favorites. You were a witch, your boyfriend was a mummy, and so the two of you decided to be suuuuper original and dress up for the museum’s Halloween bash as a witch and a mummy. You would be providing him with toilet paper so he could get that accurate mummy look.

You, on the other hand, had gone to the costume store and found the most stereotypical witch costume you could. It was a black dress with striped black and white tights and a big old witch hat to top it off. It was quite the look.

Once you were all dressed, you headed over to the museum to help Ahk get unwrapped and then rewrapped in toilet paper.

“Ah, there you are, my goddess.” he smiled at the sight of you all dressed up. You aimed your broom at him.

“I’ll get you, my pretty! And your little dog too!”

“Wizard of Oz?” he asked. Since the two of you had gotten together, you had taken it upon yourself to show him a bunch of movies you had deemed worthy of his ancient eyes.

“See, you’re getting it.” You laughed and held out a roll of toilet paper. “As long as we get a little bit of this on you, everyone will know what you are. I know you aren’t terribly fond of tight spaces.”

“Thank you, my lotus,” he exhaled a grateful breath, and you helped him roll up his chest and a little bit of his arms before calling it good.

“Comfortable?”

“Very much so,” he nodded.

“Good.” You took his hand and led him out into the museum where the others were busy decorating.

“Hey, Elphaba!” called Jed. He had been calling you that since you told him about Wicked. You looked down to the desk where he and Octavius were standing on a sign they had made. “You mind helping us put up this here sign?”

“Sure,” you said. It looked like it had literally taken a little village to make this sign. It was about six feet by three feet, completely colored with crayons and markers and colored pencils.

“Where would you like us to put it?” Ahk asked. They pointed up to hooks hanging over where Rexy usually stood. You motioned for the tiny men to get off of the poster, and then Ahk watched in awe as you wiggled your fingers, eyes focused on the large paper sign as you used your powers to raise it into the air. Up, up, up it went until it reached the hooks and settled into place.

“You two didn’t even dress up.” Octavius complained. Now looking at them, you realized they had switched clothes, leaving Jed in the Roman Centurion uniform and Octavius wearing Jed’s cowboy gear.

“Yes we did,” you tipped your hat at him and Ahk motioned to the toilet paper encasing his torso. “I’m a witch and he’s a mummy.”

“You two are terrible.” Jed shook his head. You and Ahk laughed before walking off to help the others get the party ready.

The party was quite a party. It was wild, it was insane, it was…wicked. And you loved every minute of it. Ahk spent most of the night with his arms around your waist or a hand in yours, openly claiming you as his in front of all of the museum guests. Not that they didn’t already know. They saw the looks you two gave each other from across the hall. Usually, you worked in the Salem section and Ahk worked in the Egyptian exhibit, showing off all of the treasures recovered from his tomb. But tonight, you weren’t on the clock, free to hang out with each other and have fun.

“Have you tried those yet?” You pointed to a bowl of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Ahk shook his head and held a hand to his stomach.

“I have had too much candy for one evening.”

“I told you there was a lot of candy involved.”

“And I suppose I should have believed you, my love.” the handsome pharaoh was certainly regretting his decision not to heed your words now. “I did not think it was possible for me to get sick in this state, but I am in pain.”

You raised a hand to his stomach and gently pushed power into him, causing the pain to subside immediately.

“Simple healing spell.” you explained. “Should help.”

“You are truly amazing. Have I told you that?”

You leaned over to kiss his cheek. “Maybe a few times.”

“In all my days, I’ve never met anyone with power like yours.” He pulled you close and pressed a warm kiss to the corner of your lips and then leaned his forehead against yours. Even though he was technically undead, he gave off heat like a furnace, his warmth encasing you and filling you with a tingly feeling. “I love you, my lotus.”

“I love you too, Ahk.” You smiled warmly. “Happy Halloween.”

Old Dog, New Tricks: Part Three (Preview)

Summary: Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes were known to be your soldiers across the hall. Whenever you needed them, they were there.

Sex.

I would like to thank @leaalda for making these amazing banners.

This is an effort to spread the word about all fan fiction writers in our little fandom. If you would like to be featured or nominate a writer, please contact me. Please reblog this post if you can and check out some of @raptorlily work!


1. First things first, if someone wanted to read your stories where can they find them.

You can find all my work on my Ao3 profile.

2. Tell us a little about yourself.

I’m in my early twenties taking my first Bambi steps out into the Real World and wanting to walk them right back.

I’m quirky and friendly and although it’s not apparent always, it is in fact difficult for me to sit still.  I do my best thinking when I’m pacing or jogging.  I walk and tumblr (or Ao3) a lot. It’s probably doing terrible things for my posture.

I collect rocks from everywhere I’ve been in the world. I have a picture folder on my phone dedicated to fat, baby animals.  I have an obsession with things that go vroom!

3. What do you never leave home without?

My phone and my water bottle full of cold tea.

4. Are you an early bird or a night owl?

It depends. By default, though, I’m an early bird.

5. If you could live in any fictional world which one would you choose and why?

Honestly, none of them. There’s always some apocalyptic doomsday crap going down in all the interesting fictional worlds.  I’m an escapist but I’m not that much of an escapist, you feel me?

6. Who is the most famous person you’ve ever met.

Curtis Joseph. He jokingly jumped into a round of beach volleyball with my friends. I had no idea who he was until people started running up and asking for his autograph. I also have had a few run-in’s with my country’s Super Star Prime Minister.

7. What are some of your favorite movies/TV?

Almost Famous, Princess Bride, Goodfellas, When Harry Met Sally, Scarface… those are just some that come to mind. If I see them on TV, I’ll stop and watch them no matter how many times I’ve seen them.

TV shows at the moment are Ozark, Suits, Walking Dead, Riverdale and Game of Thrones. Twin Peaks is on my list too.

8. What are some of your favorite bands/musicians?

I have bands of the moment. Lately, I’ve been jamming to the Børns,  Imagine Dragons, Lana del Rey, the Struts, Portugal. The Man,  and Young and the Giant.

Rolling Stones, Queen, and the Scorpions, though, those are my follow-forevers.

Confessions // Spencer Reid X Reader oneshot

Prompt #97 “I want you and I know you want me too.” from this list.

Requested by: mysteriouscrystalnomad

Your eyes were locked on Spencer as you watched him from afar. He was at his desk happily conversing with Emily, his hands gesturing wildly as he spoke enthusiastically. You grinned against the coffee cup that you brought to your lips. 

“Enjoying the view Y/N?” Morgan asked as he appeared next to you. You blushed as he made his own coffee before turning your gaze away from the eccentric man. 

“Shut up,” you mumbled as you placed your cup down and poured more sugar in. Morgan shook his head as he watched the white substance fall into your drink. 

“You two are so alike,” he chuckled. “Ever consider telling him?" 

"I have,” you admitted. “But I just don’t know." 

"Don’t deprive yourself of happiness,” Morgan replied as he gestured towards Spencer. You turned your head to see that his gaze was on you. He smiled broadly and waved when he caught your eye, gesturing you over. “Because Lord knows that boy really likes you." 

You blushed and nodded as you picked your cup up and made your way over to your desk. It was right in front of Spencer’s and he grinned as you sat down across from him. 

"Y/N. I was wondering if you were free tonight?,” he asked hopefully.

“I am. What did you have in mind?” You asked as you leaned your head on your hand. Spencer watched as your hair fell against the side of your face, your eyes shining with curiosity. Those were the same eyes that caused his heart to beat a little faster whenever he caught sight of them and the same soft hair he’d stroked countless times when you had fallen asleep on him on the plane. 

“Movies and a pizza? My place?” He replied with a grin. 

“Only if you let me get pineapple on it,” you replied with a small arch of your eyebrow. He groaned at your condition. 

“Y/N, no one likes pineapple on pizza,” he argued although he already knew he would be eating it later that day. He always indulged your requests if only to see you smile. 

“I do,” you replied with a small huff. “But I guess if you want to watch movies alone…" 

"Fine. We can get pineapple on it,” he grumbled. You beamed at his agreement and he found that seeing you happy was worth the unfavorable topping. 

Spencer was excited as he opened the door to his apartment. You followed behind with the box of pizza in your hands before placing it down on the small table. Spencer grabbed some plates and cans of soda before arranging everything perfectly in front of the television. You bounced onto his sofa, kicking your shoes off in the process, and sat down with your feet beneath you. 

The two of you had compromised- getting only pineapple on half of the pizza to save him from the “pain of eating something healthy on something that was meant to be beautifully greasy”, or at least that’s what Spencer had described it as. You ate happily as you watched The Wizard of Oz, one of your personal favorites, unaware of Spencer’s gaze. 

Spencer stared at you as you ate. He grinned as you absentmindedly wiped away the pizza grease that ran down your chin, too enthralled in the movie to notice much else. This wasn’t necessarily his favorite movie but he had come to love it because of how much you enjoyed it. His favorite moment was always when the lion would begin to sing because you would erupt into a fit of giggles and exclaim that it was so wonderfully bad. 

“Y/N,” Spencer called out to you in the middle of the movie. You turned your attention the man next to you. 

“Yeah?” You asked as you set your pizza down. He turned fully so that his body was facing yours causing you to immediately become alert. “Something wrong Spence?" 

"Look, Y/N,” he began as he summoned up his courage. “I want you and I know you want me too." 

Your eyes widened at his words and you blushed deeply as you looked away in embarrassment. He chuckled at your reaction. 

"I’ve caught the subtle glances at work and I’m pretty sure I know what they mean,” he laughed. You groaned as you hung your head in shame. “But I give you those same looks." 

"You do?” You asked as you finally looked at him. He smiled sheepishly. 

“Yeah. I think you’re pretty amazing. And I feel things for you that I don’t feel for Emily or JJ so I’m pretty sure that means I like you or else I don’t know what it means because I think you’re beautiful and being around you makes me happy and-" 

You placed your lips against his lightly, surprising him as his eyes immediately widened. You smiled as you pulled away catching the dreamy look in his eyes. 

“I like you too.” His face broke out into a huge smile of relief at your confession. He was sure that you did, his years of being a profiler and reading body language had helped him decode that, but there had still been a small doubt in his mind.

 "Can I hold your hand?“ He asked tentatively as he gestured to it. 

 "You may,” you replied with a grin. He smiled as he sat closer and intertwined his fingers with yours. Your phone vibrated and you pulled it out to see a message from Morgan.

 You two confess your undying love for each other yet?

You rolled your eyes before replying.

 Shut up.

You thought a little bit more before replying again.

 But we’re holding hands now.

Spencer looked at you as your phone buzzed again.

 Look at pretty boy go.

 You rolled your eyes and threw the phone far from you.

 "Was it Morgan?“ Spencer asked. 

 "Yeah. How’d you know?” you replied.

 "He’s been texting me all night too.“

Vocaloid Song Master List

EDIT: This has been updated! …Again! As per the usual I’ve gone through and added all the new songs I’ve happened to stumble across and ended up liking. I’ve put stars next to the new songs in case you wanted to look at only the added ones! I hope you enjoy!

Seeing as this is only months after the last time I updated, there aren’t as many new songs as last time. The last time I updated it had probably been around a year since I last touched the list, so…yeah. Not as much new content this time, but I figured it would be good to update this before it became to tedious to do so ^^’

I actually made this for my good friend Blacklands, but I figured, hey, if you guys want some good Vocaloid tunes to listen to and don’t know where to start, here you go! Now you know all the stuff I jam to on a daily basis.

Inspiration for everything I do usually comes from listening to Vocaloid music. Hollah.

IMPORTANT: Sooo tumblr is being stubborn and refusing to show all of the links I spent hours putting together, so I decided to put this whole word document in my stash on DeviantART. If you’re lazy and don’t want to go through the effort of looking up these songs, my stash has all of the links attached. This time I didn’t go through and check all of the links to see if they’re broken or not, seeing as that’s like 200-300 songs I have to go through…a very, very long process. So! If you click on a link and it no longer works, please let me know and I will fix it ASAP.
Here’s the link: http://sta.sh/079mmjr50yr

Well…here we go, then!

Scaring my Condescending Coworker

So I have a coworker who is probably 10, 15 years older than me and sees me more like a teenager than an adult (I’m 23, college grad). He spotted my Wicked Witch of the West-themed water bottle one day and says “Is that a Wizard of Oz cup?” To which I smile and reply “Yes! It’s my favorite movie.” He sort of chuckles and says “Allie, it amazes me how simple your taste is.” Then tries to cover his ass by adding “I don’t mean that you’re simple-minded, just that you enjoy simple things.” Uh-huh. I can read between the lines. 

Fast forward a few weeks. Our company is attending a conference and we all go out to dinner one night and enter a trivia contest. One of the questions revolves around Silence of the Lambs, which I answer easily. I then start spouting off a whole bunch of Hannibal Lecter themed fun facts. My coworker asks “How do you know all this?” To which I smile and reply, “Oh, it’s my all-time favorite movie. I have all the DVDs, read all the books, I love the TV show too.” He gets REAL quiet after that. And I realize…I might have scared him a little bit. Good. I plan to do it again. 

Fast forward again. He comes downstairs, irritated by one of our other coworkers. He says, “I might actually murder him.” (Obviously exaggerating). And, without looking up from my computer screen, I say: “It’s a good thing we live in Iowa then.” He blinks, frowns, and asks me to elaborate. “Well, pigs will eat nearly anything, including bones. So you can chop a body up, throw it to some pigs, and pretty much get rid of the evidence. All you have to do is find a nearby pig farm.” I give him a sweet, innocent little smile and he just pales and stutters out some excuse about needing to get back to work. 

Simple taste, indeed. 

anonymous asked:

hey! so im the person who asked for musical recs and im hella new to musicals so i've only listened to hamilton, tgc, deh, and heathers. thanks!

okay, awesome. i think the best way to do this would be to break it up into a few categories. and of course, there’s tons of shows out there that i can’t possibly all mention here! so keep that in mind. these are just a few of my personal faves. (and don’t think you need to listen to all of them! think of this as just a list of possibilities.)

1. THE OLD-SCHOOL CLASSICS–pre 1970, very traditional music, relatively straightforward plots, resolutions, etc

•west side story! you’ve heard of this one. romeo and juliet, but nyc gangs. classic tragic love story with some damn good music.

•the sound of music! don’t watch the carrie underwood version lmao. takes place in 1930s austria. a young aspiring nun isn’t quite fit for the job, so her convent sends her to work as the governess for the seven children of a widower. cute love story, but also they flee from nazis. julie andrews is everything.

•seven brides for seven brothers! this isn’t quite as much of a true classic as much as those first two are, but it’s a personal favorite. a mountain man in 1850s oregon sets out to get a wife; when he successfully returns home, she realizes she’s meant to take care of his 6 uncivilized brothers, too. she whips them into shape, and eventually they all fall in love with 6 of HER friends. shenanigans ensue. questionable gender dynamics but w/e.

2. THE NEW CLASSICS–more recent shows that have established themselves as Important Musicals, may be more experimental or innovative, may just be super popular, either way ought to be remembered down the line

•wicked! a musical prequel to the wizard of oz that explores the relationship between the wicked witch of the west and glinda the good witch…as college roommates. crazy popular show, you might know “defying gravity” or “popular” already.

•rent! be prepared to cry and want to rage against society, dude. centers around a group of artists in new york city near the middle/end of the AIDS epidemic. about half the main characters are lgbtq, and about the same number live with HIV/AIDS. focuses on the artists trying to fight against gentrification and society while also dealing with personal struggles.

•fun home! a very recent show, won the best musical tony in 2015. explores the life of lesbian cartoonist alison bechdel (ever heard of the bechdel test? she inadvertently created it) through three perspectives: her as a young girl, a college student, and an adult reflecting on her life. follows her journey with regards to her sexuality as she grew up and her relationship with her father, a gay man who committed suicide when she was in college. so heartbreaking, so amazing. a personal favorite.

•in the heights! lin manuel miranda’s first show. it follows a close knit community of black and latinx people who all live on the same block in washington heignts. the plot focuses on how the community is rocked by 1. the revelation that one of them has won $96,000 in the lotto and 2. a massive blackout. super funny, super emotional, amazing music.

3. SHOWS THAT ARE JUST REALLY FUN

•hairspray! it takes place in the 1960s (super cute costumes/musical styles) and follows an overweight teenage girl named tracy turnblad who wants to dance on her local tv station’s after school teen dance program. it also addresses the racial struggles of the time as the black dancers fight for the tv station’s integration. super funny, really fun music, lovable characters.

•legally blonde! yes, there’s a musical adaptation of the movie, and i love it. you might know the plot; elle woods, a sorority girl from california, is dumped by her trust fund boyfriend who wants to find someone more “serious” at harvard law, so she decides to get into harvard law to prove her worth to him. along the way, she finds out she’s worth a lot more.

•the book of mormon! i’m not exaggerating when i say this is probably the funniest show i’ve ever seen/listened to. like, the music is laugh-out-loud hilarious. it was actually written by the dudes from south park, so there’s that. it’s about two young clueless mormon missionaries who get sent to uganda and have to try to spread the word of god while trying to fight back against a warlord. so. fucking. funny.

4. AMAZING SCORES–like, i don’t necessarily mean here that i love every single individual song, but if you like incredibly intricate music with beautifully recurring themes (like great comet), these you might like.

•les miserables! one of my personal all-time favorites. it takes place in the early nineteenth century in france, and it’s about this dude named jean valjean, who went to prison for years for stealing bread. he gets out and decides to basically remake his whole life. later, he becomes a successful factory owner and adopts the daughter of one of his former workers, then the daughter grows up and falls in love…there’s a lot going on. just watch the show.

•into the woods! you like fairy tales? well, here’s ALL of them mashed into one show. seriously, sondheim is sorta a crazy genius. it’s about a generic baker who, to lift a curse, has to get jack (and the beanstalk’s) cow, some of rapunzel’s hair, little red riding hood’s cape, cinderella’s shoe…a lot happens, yo.

•sweeney todd! sondheim again, and this one is pretty dark and crazy, lmao. a vengeful barber named sweeney todd starts cutting the throats of his clients, and his accomplice/friend/lover(?) mrs. lovett, who runs a pie shop, starts baking the clients into pies to help get rid of the evidence.

5. WEIRD SHIT–broadway can be weird and experimental, idk.

•spring awakening! based on a german play from the late 1800s, i believe. german farm teens discover the strange wonders of sex for the first time, accompanied by mid-2000s indie rock.

•avenue q! it’s like sesame street rated r. it’s all puppets, except the puppets swear and fuck and stuff. the music is catchy as hell, though.

•little shop of horrors! a classic, tbh. a mild-mannered nerd works in a flower store, comes across a weird-ass alien plant. the plant can talk and stuff. turns out the only thing that can satisfy it is human blood! lots of murder by plant. really funny, though.

6. PERSONAL FAVORITES–things that didn’t fit in any other category precisely but i still like, idk.

•newsies! there’s a movie with baby christian bale lmao, but the stage show is better. newsboys in 1899 go on strike when newspaper suppliers raise prices. VERY dancey. very catchy songs.

•falsettos! oh man, i love crying. a gay man, marvin, leaves his wife (and son, a bit) for his lover, and after everyone finally gets sick of his shit, is forced to reckon with his own maturity and problems. then, in the second act, more stuff happens, but i don’t want to spoil it. PLEASE listen to falsettos. it’s one of my favorites of all time.

•the last 5 years! this show actually has only 2 people in it. it tells the story of a relationship from both people’s perspectives. the thing is, her songs go from the end of their relationship backwards to the beginning, and his go chronologically from the beginning to the end, and they meet just once in the middle. it’s just songs going back and forth, and the songs are pretty wonderful.

•next to normal! it’s about a woman with severe mental health problems and her family trying to make it through as she struggles to find a treatment that will help keep her “balanced.” kinda heartbreaking, kinda wonderful, raises some fascinating questions about mental health and if treatment is right for everyone.

•heathers! you’ve already listened to it. i just love it so i’m gonna say it anyway.


this is, well, TONS of shows, so i think i’m good! happy listening!

Heroes

Summary: When the music blasting from Bucky’s room interrupts team movie night, Steve takes it upon himself to see what’s up and comes to regret it.

A/N: Just a fun one-shot. I chose Bowie because he’s one of my favorites!


“Okay, so who’s turn is it to choose the movie?” asked Clint as he sat down on the couch, gripping a large bowl of popcorn.

“Steve’s. He’s running a little late,” said Natasha, draping her legs over Clint’s and grabbing a handful of popcorn from the bowl. Sam, Tony, Scott, and Wanda were spread out on the other couches and chairs in the common room of the tower, patiently awaiting Steve’s arrival.

“Where’s Barnes?” asked Sam, but before anyone could reply, he figured out the answer to his question.

we’re about to hit the 1 year mark for bvs

And I wanted to write something deep, but lol who am I kidding. Here’s me waxing poetic about the DCEU

I think a lot about this universe. A LOT. I rewatch MOS constantly. There’s not a day that goes by I don’t listen to at least one song  of the ost (Launch and Terraforming at my faves). Since 2013 when MOS was released, I’ve listened to it. MOS/BVS and now SuSq are on all my devices. I know I won’t watch them EVERY day, but I like knowing they’re there. I have a very random work schedule that sometimes sees me in the subway pass the midnight mark when I either get home in 20 minutes or 2 hours. Most times, I’ll put on one of those movies. Do I want contemplative smol superpowered child in an alien invasion with some romance thrown in? MOS. Do I want visual mind fuck and intertextual superhero madness with some romance thrown in? BVS. Do I want to have introspective fun with weirdos fucking shit up together with some romance thrown in? SuSq. This is on top of the movies/tv shows I also have in all my devices. The stuff that I return to constantly for peace of mind. Sometimes I need it for brain juice. Sometimes I just need something that my eyes will follow for those 20 min or 2 hours. In these movies every frame matters, every choice on the screen adds to the overall construction of the universe. My migraines come to at random with a bunch of triggers. Flashing lights and shaky camera? Almost always can’t fucking take it. Yet I can see the Bruce vs. Clark fight and not gage at all that there are constant flashing lights, because that light is not simply flare for aesthetic tastes. I know I can handle it there, it matters there. I can work pass that trigger there. 

I was going to talk about the critics and the haters, but overall my reaction to that is the same. OK U DON’T LIKE THESE MOVIES THAT’S AWESOME! Because ultimately what matters to me is that a) I LOVE THESE MOVIES and b) THERE’S A FANDOM WHO LOVES THEM AS MUCH AS I DO. Here we are, a year after BVS, four since MOS and just over six months post SuSq, and WE’RE STILL UNPACKING THESE MOVIES. Just the other day I rewatched one of my favorite alien invasion movies, Day the Earth Stood Still, a movie I’d seen a dozen times, and I caught a reference MOS made to it. THIS IS HOW MUCH THIS UNIVERSE CARES ABOUT MY SCI FI LOVING ASS and how subtle and sublime their dedication to building it. I’ve seen MOS and Day OVER AND OVER and I JUST caught that.  I always saw MOS as a hybrid sci-fi/horror movie (in that Znyder uses horror techniques [like Hide the Monster for Clark’s powers] to tell the familiar Supes story, and Day the Earth Stood Still always felt like it influenced it. Is it reaching? Fuck no because it isn’t isolated. There are so many moments in BVS that are pure movie homage, and it’s done to EXPAND on the current story, not just as a cameo (now, this is not a dig at Stan Lee, but what is the purpose beyond OH IT’S STAN LEE!) or a brief har-har look. Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz? 2001: A Space Odyssey? King Kong? Frankenstein? These are all literary and movies powerhouses that changed the course of movie making, that SHOULD be acknowledged and copied, over and over (if you think copying is bad then go back in time and tell that to Shakespeare). Stories make other stories stronger. Watch Day the Earth Stood Still and you’ll understand more about MOS/BVS. Watch Metropolis, you’ll understand more about SuSq (where the fuck did this wants to be Tarantino/Ccorsese rap influence come from lol?) ALMOST CERTAINLY Seven Samurai will be a HUGE influence over Justice League because HEY SO HAS EVERY FUCKING TEAM MASH UP SINCE 1957. The strongest stories are those built on the ones before, the ones that use the best and more favored pieces and tell the same story differently to get varied versions. And you’d think comic book movies would embrace this because sequels are a given? But they just don’t. Marvel discovered their formula and COPIED IT ENDLESSLY to enormous success. But I don’t care about that formula almost as much as I don’t care talking about the MC lol so moving on!

Every time I rewatch MOS/BVS/SuSq it never feels the same. I wonder about moments, question them, reassess and reconsider and wonder about them. There’s just SO FUCKING MUCH. And I’m still not tired. I’m still not done. AND  IT’S JUST THE BEGINNING. Think about this DCEU fam. THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING. And what do we have? Just at the top of my head: eugenics vs. freedom of choice. Exploration of diaspora. Media affecting mass perception. Depiction of PTSD in a hero. Exploitation of prisoners by the state. Responsibility of a hero, the mass destructive consequences and accountability for those actions. How power manifests itself, from the extreme physical impossibilities of Superman to Lex Luthor’s economical and social power to the extreme governmental authority of Amanda Waller. These are explored to varying degrees IN ALL THESE MOVIES, built upon the other, reflective of the issues and never with a bow that explains it all. The audience is not a passive participant. We are engaged to ask and consider these incredibly important, universal questions and philosophies.

That’s all I have for now. SOMEONE TAKE OVER. TELL ME YOUR 1 YEAR LATER DCEU STORY.

Dude I have no idea what the show the labyrinth is but reading your thing made me want to watch all of it then invest and all the merchandise

this is my favorite ask ever and i am going to use it as my PLEASE WATCH LABYRINTH campaign for the several people who’ve said things along the lines of “i’ve never seen labyrinth/ dont know what it is but i’m into this” about my fic. ( @illyriantremors and @birdiethebibliophile i see y’alls tags/replies >:) )

Labyrinth is a cult classic fantasy movie ostensibly for children, along the lines of a modern Wizard of Oz/ Alice in Wonderland. I say ostensibly because it’s the story of a fifteen year old girl coming of age via a fantasy realm of her own imagining in 1986, and thus one of its central features is David Bowie in very tight leggings, leering sexually, wearing leather coats and poet shirts, singing in every other scene, and glittering liberally.

She’s a realistically immature but also resourceful and kind teenager gets to live out her fantasies and have fun and grow up in a healthy happy way!! She’s a NERD WHO RUNS AROUND IN A PRINCESS DRESS IN THE PARK BY HERSELF.  R E L A T A B L E

Also, this is a Jim Henson production, so the Labyrinth is populated with crazy puppet shit. WHICH I LOVE, YOUR MILEAGE MAY VARY (hi lauren)

It’s my favorite movie of all time and it’s literally so weird and makes no sense and it’s simultaneously so wholesome and so “wow Jim Henson really did make a full-length film version of a fifteen-year-old nerd girl’s wet dream with a bunch of musical numbers” and also this fifteen-year-old nerd girl was me, probably, the fact that I wouldn’t be born for another ~10 years not withstanding

I mean look at this

^ me, popping up to tell you to watch this thing

So that’s my pitch, sorry it’s kind of incoherent. bottom line is please watch Labyrinth, so you can be way less impressed with my fic because you can see how many of the lines i just wholesale stole, but also your life will be immeasurably richer for it. Even if u hate it it’s so fucking bizarre it’s worth seeing once. Sadly it is not on netflix but it is VERY easy to find other places, ifyaknowwhadimean

also if u watch it for the first time as a result of my fic/ this post you are REQUIRED to come and tell me what you thought. ok NOW i’m done <3
