“That line [’I wish I knew how to quit you.’] has moved, it has been mocked, it has been everything in between, but I remember coming out of that scene, off that ridge of the hill, and seeing a number of the crew, some of whom didn’t even know what the movie was about, crying. When I first read that line, I was like, ‘What is that?’ Now I realize that anybody who has loved knows what that feels like. The interesting part of casting us at such a young age was that we didn’t completely understand what we were involved in, and that’s the beauty of the movie as well.” —Jake Gyllenhaal
Can we just talk about this moment? He has no idea that Belle said she loved him back. He died before hand.
•This expression on his face says everything. He turns around and looks at Belle as if he truly can’t believe the meaning behind it all.
• “I’m human? But that means….” he whips around and sees Belle standing there. He lets out a breath of relief. Everything he has ever hoped for since she got there has fallen into place. The spell is broken, she loves him, his castle has been saved.
• But just look at this precious cinnamon roll. Look at that FACE. That expression crushes me every time. He looks as though he’s about ready to cry. But following this part, he’s cautious. He lets Belle lead. He’s afraid he’ll scare her somehow. That perhaps his human form is more frightening than the Beast. He knows his character as a human to be despicable, arrogant, hateful, and conceited. That’s the last thing he wants Belle to see. But she sees into his heart. She knows. She knows how loving, caring, kind, and compassionate he’s become. And now so does he.
• That hair tho. It’s so soft JUST LET ME TOUCH IT.
I will never get over this. The way Jon’s breath just rushes out of him and he viscerally shudders while looking at Dany so intensely. He loves her with everything he has and he can’t believe she’s actually real. After everything he’s suffered, he probably thought he’d never love again, and yet here Daenerys is, beautiful and extraordinary, bringing life back into his heart, and he can hardly fathom that this incredible woman loves him just as much as he loves her.
Wondering how to tell your friends about “Women of Xal” but there’s no easy place to gather information? Well we’re here to fix that with a reblog-ready post! (Kickstarter link here!)
SO WHAT IS “WOMEN OF XAL” ANYWAYS?!
“Women of Xal” is an otome visual novel currently live on Kickstarter. You assume the role of Xjena, who, along with five other girls, will be campaigning against each other to lay claim to a political position of power in a Matriarchal society. An all male harem comes free with your victory. An official trailer and playable demo is available right in the front of our Kickstarter page!
SO HOW DO YOU WIN THE CAMPAIGN FOR POWER?
There’s several ways to do this (or outright fail at it.) You can either play through the game as a benevolent friend to everyone and decide you don’t want the power that badly, or you can be ruthless and throw everyone you can under the bus. And there’s plenty middleground to go around. However, everything has a consequence, and there’s no easy ‘right or wrong’ answer to situations that become increasingly grey and complex.
BUT CAN I ROMANCE THE GIRL IN THAT GIF?!
Velvet (the girl in the gif!) is romanceable! Because you can make Xjena gay, straight, bi, poly, or ace! It all depends on your own preferences. There are 5 ladies to choose from, and five guys, with more on the way thanks to Kickstarter backers making romanceable OCs.
WILL THERE BE NUDITY/SEXUAL SOUNDS?
Not planned, and if happen to get a flood of requests for it, there will be an option to opt-out of said content altogether.
I CAN’T AFFORD TO BACK YOUR KICKSTARTER. HOW ELSE CAN I HELP?
If you hit that reblog button, you basically play a key role in saving my life. You can also play the demo and talk to us about it in my inbox or on our subreddit!
