there are no words to describe my love for this scene

anonymous asked:

When Beth was singing to Daryl she was playing Be Good. Why? They could choose another one but she chose Be Good, she or whoever. Is there any reason for this?

Beth sang Be Good because the writers wanted to convey a romantic connection in that scene. When the song was released in 2012, NPR described Be Good as a song about not wanting to ruin a friendship because of romantic feelings (X):

It’s a love song like the rest, but with an important tweak: “You don’t wanna be my boyfriend / I don’t wanna be your girl / And that’s a relief.”

In few words, Crutchfield profiles two people who love and trust each other deeply, who share their dreams and secret shames, but who would rather shotgun beers together than make out. Such friendships, like most beautiful things, are delicate. Bound up in the reverie of “Be Good” is an understanding of what could happen if either party upsets the balance: “That gets messy / You will hurt me / Or I’ll disappear.”

Beth and Daryl had become best friends in the time jump between Still and Alone. They were everything to each other, and in Alone, they were both starting to realize their feelings for one another in different ways. Daryl’s realization was more conscious, but I think Beth was also starting to realize her feelings, on a subconscious level. They were sheltering in a fortified house where she could let her guard down. Beth’s flirty gaze after Daryl and her fidgeting with the peanut butter jar make it clear she had feelings too (X):

Beth chose that song because she was likely feeling conflict subconsciously, as Daryl was consciously. They would both be afraid of ruining their friendship. It’s an expected fear for two people in their situation as such a step could make things “messy” like in the song. Scott Gimple and Emily sifted through several songs because Scott wanted that “moment” (X). Be Good captured that tender moment between Bethyl when Beth played the piano, and the song also captured the unspoken romantic conflict.

Originally, TPTB were going to use King of Carrot Flowers, by Neutral Milk Hotel, but couldn’t because of licensing (X). The band has two songs with that title, divided into “parts”. Going by the themes in the different songs, Emily most likely meant King of Carrot Flowers Pt. 1. This is one of the verses from the song:

And this is the room
One afternoon I knew I could love you
And from above you how I sank into your soul
Into that secret place where no one dares to go
.”

Sounds just like their time in the funeral home, doesn’t it?

have you heard the rumours about my rapping?
i have, actually!
come at me with a beat.
okay, yeah.

more ridiculous things i’ve done for writing:

- weighted a grapefruit in my hands to see if i could justifiably describe something as “weighing as much as a grapefruit”
- done jumping jacks for 5 minutes straight so the memory of how exertion feels would be fresh in my mind
- googled images of butterscotch to see if “butterscotch” could be a hair colour
- casually stared at people at bus stops trying to figure out how i would hypothetically recreate their image in words
- written 7 different beginnings for a story to see which one i liked best
- gone to venice
- enthusiastically spoken dialogue aloud to myself to see how it sounds
- tried to read 3 books in one day
- experienced terrible things, reacting with “i can write about this”
- screamed incoherently at someone for turning on the tv while i was in the room, writing
- sat there perfectly still staring into space trying to imagine what getting a boner feels like
- “hey re-enact this scene with me”
- sat upside-down for ten minutes trying to get my brain to work
- squandered schoolwork and free time alike for years
- written

“One of my favourite scenes, which is a perfect example of what [director] Jeff [Nichols] does so masterfully, is when Richard and Mildred come back to Virginia. They’re not saying a word and Mildred just takes a moment to feel the sun. In that moment, without any dialogue, you not only sense what coming home means to her — you also feel it. You feel the temperature, you feel the light, you can smell. It’s like adding another dimension to watching a movie.”

“And it’s not just that, you see him looking at her. And the tiniest bit of a smile breaks through his reserve, because he’s given her what she’s wanted so badly. And then he looks up the road, where all the bad things may come from, and he feels the anxiety again. And all of that happens in a few seconds of screen time.”

–  “Loving” producer Colin Firth describing his favourite moment in the film 

She is far from typical. She’s not the girl next door that all the movies are about.

She’s in the books.
She’s the endless words authors use to hopelessly describe her.
She’s got a voice that demands to be heard and a heart that’s raging wild with storms.
She’s stubborn, yet in the most innocent of ways and she’ll smile like no other when the sunlight hits her face.
She’s a story that’s desperate to be told and one that I’m desperate to tell.

—  Nicole Torres// excerpt #14

If you watched this scene with your mind in half a buzz about Yuuri’s amazing score, then stop now, go back and re-watch.

Viktor’s voice right here…I have not heard him sound like this in the entire series so far. I can’t quite describe the raw emotion in his voice. His voice is trembling, it’s emotional, and it’s so very, very fond. I can feel the love and pride emanate through my screen.

Viktor gets closer to Yuuri’s ear as he speaks, this is just for him to hear, it’s a personal moment. And something in his tone, in his words says ‘Oh Yuuri, dear little piglet, how typical of you. So modest. Of course the performance was enough, more than enough, you silly kastudon’. It sounds familiar and fond like that.

But quite importantly, Viktor is saying how great he feels after watching a performance like that. He’s happy and proud. Hearing Viktor close to tears, and so raw, it made for a touching little moment amongst the bigger ones. 

just-another-exhausted-fangirl replied to your post “remember when i actually imagined what itd be like if they explicitly…”

Could you name some? As a cis person it’s very hard to see it from a trans perspective so I’m very curious! ��

aight heres some off the top of my head but theres more in my trans sherlock tag

-judging by the pirouette he does in tsot, it is very likely that he has studied ballet at some point in time, most people who do do so in childhood and most children in ballet classes are girls (balance of probability)

-magnussen, a man who loves to blackmail, intimidate, harass, and expose the secrets of vulnerable people for personal gain, in a deleted scene from HLV held sherlocks hand in his and described them, ending by questioning if they were a woman’s hands, at which point sherlock mustered all his energy just to disgustedly pull his hand away

-”sherlock is actually a girls name”, yes it was a joke sherlock said while high but its an interesting possible truth nonetheless

-in HLV mycroft says (and im quoting from memory only here, also the added emphasis is by me) to sherlock of his drug habit “How like Uncle Rudy, though in many ways cross-dressing would have been the wiser choice”

-in teh sherlock has been away for 2 years and in that time his hair grew very long but his facial hair barely seemed to grow at all ??? though we know it can due to The Lying Detective setlock pics (suggesting a lack of T while undercover and away from home)

-his lack of sexual experience could be contributed to by body and more specifically genital dysphoria, in addition to being trans making it even scarier to get close to people

-despite mycroft being frankly quite belittling and mean to him, he looks up to him at almost every turn and clearly models a lot of himself on mycroft, which to me seems like someone looking for male role models to replicate, which just personally to me is a LOT of what gender presentation involves

-sherlock saying in TSOT “beauty is a construct”; gender is also a social construct, something which many trans people know very well and something being a “construct” being….quite the thing to just blurt out

-#drugs mention for this bullet point: Sherlock seems to take intra-venous drugs, and testosterone taken by trans men is typically injected with needles! it seems to me like that would have been a perfect cover for his drug habit, in addition to the possibility that getting gender-affirming surgery would have given him more reasons to be on and methods to obtain other drugs

Cadet Holmes: A Detective Undercover

Oh. My. God. What have I done? This was meant to be a quick little ficlet about Sherlock swooning over Captain Watson. It’s turned into a monster, over 6,000 words long. I blame @inevitably-johnlocked and the watchalong crew. An innocent screening of Mulan has turned into this smut fest.

I hope you all enjoy it, I tried to make it funny as well as sexy.

Warnings: military kink, public sex, swearing, a tiny bit of homophobia, Sherlock has a dirty mind, there is a scene that doesn’t have explicitly obvious consent but they both want it, there is a crime scene in this but I tried not to describe the body much, explicit sex happens and as it’s a smut fic they don’t use protection.

This is one of the most heart-wrenching scenes from the OVA, and one whose significance I cannot stress enough. No matter Ryuko’s claims that she’s fine without Senketsu, or that she’ll be okay and you shouldn’t worry about her, here we see that she’s struggling with letting him go. Sure, she just screamed a big, rousing speech about moving on, but things are easier said than done. At the end of it all, she can’t help but clutch her heart, where Senketsu’s eye used to be. She smiles, but it’s clear that this isn’t something that’s easy for her.

And why would it be? Senketsu was Ryuko’s kindred spirit, someone just like her who understood her completely. He was someone she wanted to spend the rest of her life with (“I’m never taking Senketsu off ever again!”), and someone she loved more than words could describe. She would put her life on the line to protect him, and did—over and over again. But right when they’d saved the world together and they should have finally been able to enjoy a peaceful life, she has to watch him die… and she’s powerless to stop it.

Here, Ryuko is finally showing some vulnerability. Senketsu’s loss severely affects her, and notably, this is the first time we see her really reveal this in anyone’s company. She’s hurting! Regardless of what she says, of what she knows, she’s still just lost someone incredibly dear to her, and it still pains her.

And Mako sees that. Mako sees that, and reassures her that Senketsu will always be with her—that to move on, it doesn’t mean you have to let go of everything you shared. Ryuko then comes to a realization: there’s nothing shameful about treasuring the memories she had with Senketsu. It doesn’t make her “stuck in the past” to cherish those times. It doesn’t make her weak.

So in the very final moments of Kill la Kill, Ryuko looks up towards where Senketsu is… and he looks back. She stops running and pushing away her feelings. She acknowledges her pain, but understands that they’ll always have their important, significant bond, even after death—and it’s that which the show wants you to remember and take away from it, at the end of everything.

When I look at this scene, that’s what I see. But I feel so alone in this viewpoint.

Lynne’s review: This was so damn cute - so endearing, I think I hurt my face smiling throughout.  Just wait til the final scene in part one - major flailing.  Then move on the the next part and the next…you’ll love it!

“So good of you to come.” Those were the words Lourié’s ears caught. He couldn’t quite tell if it was a voice or the sound the wind. But he felt certain that words came from the other presence.[…]
“My children number in the millions.” Said the presence.

Scene from Vampire Hunter D vol.22 : White Devil Mountain. By Hideyuki Kikuchi.

Felt like I should draw how I pictured Duke Gilzen in that black mist shrouding the little boy. The scene was kinda eerie so yeh. It’s pretty much my favourite novel series ever since it features pretty much everything you need: post-apocalyptic sci-fi, vampires, aliens (yeah I know but it’s dope trust me) all your favourite characters dying (lol) and a protagonist that seems like a mary sue when you describe him but is actually a dick. And we still all love him. Also a talking left hand.

brace yourselves, this post is my love letter to x-men: apocalypse
  • [HUGE SPOILERS AHEAD]
  • i don’t care what the critics have to say, this might be my favorite x-men movie so far. here we go:
  • my fave storm rocks as usual of course, but the fact raven is her idol and she freaking betrayed apocalypse BECAUSE OF HER was my favorite thing. idk i just have too many feels about that one
  • my baby raven is an icon and worshiped by all mutants AND humans. never thought i’d see that and it made me sooo happy
  • kurt is a precious cinnamon roll who must be protected at all costs
  • now one of my favorite parts: SCOTT FREAKING SUMMERS IS FINALLY THE LEADER OF THE X-MEN, AS HE SHOULD’VE BEEN FROM THE START
  • rip alex :( i loved the scene where he destroyed the cerebro
  • CHARLES. that’s it. i don’t have words to describe my love for him. probably my favorite male character in anything, ever
  • SCOTT AND JEAN ARE LITERALLY THE CUTEST. but i wanted a kiss so bad :(
  • i didn’t even ship charles and moira that much in first class, but now, OH MY. HIM FINALLY GIVING HER HER MEMORIES BACK AND CHOOSING HIS OWN HAPPINESS FOR ONCE. and the fact she has a son that he’s gonna meet now, i can’t even
  • eric having a family was f*cking weird man
  • jean, scott, kurt, and jubilee watching star wars was amazing
  • that slow motion scene with peter was everything
  • jean and kurt AND THEIR LEADER SCOTT saving everyone made me so happy. they’re all so new at this and already so good at everything 
  • the only thing i didn’t like was that creepy af scene between logan and jean though. like, STAY THE F*CK AWAY FROM HER SHE’S A CHILD
  • BEASTIQUE LIVES GUYS. sure, nothing really happened, but it’s so obvious they still have feelings for each other and i’m weak
  • erik actually listening to raven AND betraying apocalypse WHEN HE STARTED TO HURT CHARLES. i was convinced he would do it after hearing peter was his son, but this was SO much better. also, when he put a big X in front of charles to protect him, that was the best. charles/raven will always be my favorite brotp in the movies, but cherik wins this one
  • and of course, MY FAVORITE SCENE OF THE MOVIE: JEAN GREY BECOMING THE PHOENIX. i freaking loved how they made her/a woman the most powerful mutant. idk i just loved that scene so much 
  • ERIK FINALLY NOT F*CKING SHIT UP AT THE END
  • AND MY FAVORITE PART: RAVEN BECOMING THEIR TRAINER AND STAYING WITH CHARLES, WHERE SHE ALWAYS BELONGED. i guess she did come home after all. i do wish we got more of them though :(
  • in conclusion, i love everyone, i ship everything, and i CANNOT wait to see this movie again. what an ending to a beautiful trilogy 

I watched Kotonoha no Niwa, or The Garden of Words, today, and I cannot describe how much I love it. This short film is about a high school boy named Takao who meets this woman at the park on rainy days. The two develop closer as the days go by, and slowly start catching themselves praying for a rainy day. I won’t explain more, as I don’t want to spoil anything for you guys. Despite the amazing storyline, the thing that caught my attention first was the beautiful animation style. I feel like every scene could be a wallpaper for my desktop. Overall, I give this movie a 10/10, please go watch it if you haven’t yet! 

[25] How would you describe a good writer?

I’d say someone who isn’t afraid to explore writing out of their comfort zone,(for example, to write action scenes while knowing you might screw up), someone who keeps using their own style of writing even though it might not be very common and go with whatever they love, and you can find a good writer from sometimes reading any random paragraph or sentence and you get a piece of their soul along with the words.

[58] Which of your characters would you (A) Hug? (B) Date? © Kill?

I’d give Obi (AnS) a hug, BECUASE THAT GUY DESERVES IT!!.

For I’d love to date James Herondale (TID), like imagine a date with him, it’ll be a one of my best memories.

I don’t really want to kill anyone at the moment, but If I did it’d probably be Valentine Morgenstern (TMI), becuase he wasn’t just one of the worst villains but attempted to destroy his children’s lives and I hate the thing about the children having to bear the sins of their father.

Thank you all so much! It was such a strange, yet fantastic experience writing pwp smut for the first time in almost a year. I am really glad to hear that you all enjoyed it, since I was a little worried that after going so long without writing proper smut, it would be exceptionally bad. Literally me when I was posting it:
