Every town has one, the spooky house that all the kids avoid. Ours was Thornhill, the Blossom family’s mansion, with it’s very own graveyard. And trapped within its walls, like some Gothic heroine, was Cheryl Blossom, who’s still grieving for her beloved brother Jason. Linked in death even as they were in life.
The problem is that I don’t have just one specific favorite scene. Like every time I try and narrow it down I think of another one that I love but okay I’m gonna try and pick just one.
The Neon Lights/Sha-Boom scene. To start off I just have to say that that scene is so beautiful and the animation seriously has not become dated at all. It’s still as beautiful as I remember it being as a kid. “Just like in it’s heyday, right?” That’s honestly one of my favorite lines from Lightning and like.
Okay I’m absolute shit at explaining things. I’m really bad at expressing why I love certain things but I’m really gonna try here.
It makes me so emotional that he did that for Sally. He listened to everything she told him on their drive. He listened and he paid so much attention to everything she was telling him and he tried so hard to make Radiator Springs look like it did back in the day. Like, he’s only known her for four fucking days and he already cares about her so much. He already cares about this little town so much ! Four days ago he was yelling about how it’s “Hillbilly Hell!” and now?????? He doesn’t ever want to leave!! Four days!!!!!!!
And god when he nudges her, and she nudges him back, the face he makes kills me. Like he didn’t expect her to actually nudge him back, and he’s just. He’s so shocked and so happy.
And god the music. Sha-Boom is one of the best songs on that soundtrack and I’ll fight anyone that says otherwise.
And god the goodbye part. First off, he’s so damn happy to see Mack and it makes me very Emotional. But god then Sally pulls up and I get WRECKED.
I made a gifset of his face in that moment and haha kill me ! He can’t even talk to her. He wants so badly to say how he’s feeling but he can’t and it just. God it pains me so much. And god Sally’s face. And her lines.
“Good luck in California. I hope you find what you’re looking for.” G O D.
And then he starts chasing after her!!! He’s yelling her name and trying to get to her but the damn paparazzi won’t let him through. And you can hear Harv in the background, “You don’t belong there anyway” and the door shuts and McQueen is still fighting to get out. To see the town. He’s forced away from Radiator Springs and I bet you anything as soon as that trailer door shut he started crying. That’s just my headcanon but like…
And then that reporter tells Doc “Thanks for the call” and god… Sally’s reaction…….
“Best for everyone? Or best for you?” that line…….
The residents all watching as he’s taken away, all assuming he called them. Sally slowly going into her house and shutting off the lights. Everyone slowly turning to go home and the town just shuts down. And Doc’s left alone. With that damn broken stop light.
A/N: I had a mighty need to write pure happy, tooth rotting fluff after this week’s episode, but lacked inspiration. Then lo and behold, in the midst of all of the painful (and gorgeous!) post-4x17 gifsets,this gem of a post came across my dash and made me simultaneously smile and scream “but IMAGINE FITZSIMMONS”. And thus, this fic was born.
It may have only been their third date, but Leo Fitz found himself wondering how he ever lived in a world without Jemma Simmons in it.
They had been set up by their mutual friend, Daisy. (You’re both the two biggest dorks I know, she had said. Not to mention sweet and kind and brilliant– oh and did I mention she’s British? You guys are like, made for one another, I just know it.)
Normally resistant to set-ups, Fitz had to admit, he owed Daisy big time. Jemma was everything she had promised and more. She worked as a biochemist at Isodyne, he was an engineer at Stark Industries. They had instantly bonded over their shared love of science, but there were about a million other things about her that made him smile. Like when, on their second date, he realized they both took their tea same way and it reminded him of home. Or like, how they were both Doctor Who fans (her story about meeting David Tennant had been the perfect icebreaker on their first date).
Everything was so easy with her– it felt like they had known each other for years. It all added up to Fitz falling hard and fast for the brilliant and gorgeous woman sitting across from him.
We’ve all seen this scene a lot already because it was from the promo. I’ve made gifs of it before, but there are the ones from the actual episode itself.
Apology: While I was hyper critical of this scene when I saw it in the promo, I’m actually quite pleased with its final incarnation. The additional CGI and obvious further tweaking of his speed, strength and sword, I am very happy.
its the nerd in me, i swear, but somebody aught to put some sam & frodo quotes on some jonty gifsets.
‘jasper wouldn’t have made it very far without monty.’
'dont go where i cant follow.’
'It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end… because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing… this shadow. Even darkness must pass.’
In the wish AU made by the EQ, princess Emma is also the powerful savior. When the DO is destroying the peace in the kingdom, Queen Snow White And King David track down the DO’s biggest enemy, who knows him better than most, captain Hook. They offer him to combine forces and trap the DO for once and for all.
The next day, Captain Hook is brought up to meet the powerful princess that he will team up with for this purpose. They join force and make quite the team, but in the end it was Emma’s true love for him that has grown in her heart since she saw him that made her powerful enough to defeat the DO.
Dedicated to @the-fangirl-inside-me - from me, your CSSS! Have a very happy Hanukkah,Tal! I really enjoyed meeting you in these last couple of weeks, and it was amazing to realize you speak Hebrew and lived in Israel in the past :) I feel like we were perfectly matched ;)
I usually don’t make AU gifsets, so it was a real challenge for me, and I was thinking a lot about what to do. Then I decided to make my own version of what the reality of Emma would have looked like if the EQ’s wish AU made any sense what so ever. I think under any circumstance Emma would have still be the powerful savior, even as the princess. And I’m sure that fate would have brought her to find her TL Killian Jones.
“I mean, I know who I am. I’m this goofball. I look at myself in the mirror, and the person that I know doesn’t match up to what I think people love to perceive me as. I’ve never sought this life that I’ve been given. It could be overwhelming if I didn’t think I could handle it. I’m just some random dude, you know. I’m just some guy. -Happy Birthday Darren Criss
I was just passing by your askbox to tell you that those Melwood gifsets you've made are beautiful (I love the coloring) and I'm glad you and many other people of the karamel fandom are trying to stay positive and fight against bullying. Btw, I feel like I'm being very annoying lately so, sorry for that...
Annoying??? Never!! I love it when you talk to me. It always makes me happy to see you in my askbox and you always make my day with your sweet words! You’re just one of the kindest people I’ve met here. I speak the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
And thank you. I used that PSD mostly because most videos are not HQ so if I used my usual psd that has a lot more vibrance, the gifs would look grainy. I’m glad people like it. :)
Ok your TL5Y comments have made me curious :) If you haven't already and wouldn't mind doing so, I'd love to hear more about specifically what Cathy did that you feel put her at fault (partly). I've seen the stage show and heard from others before and I'm not really one-sided, but I'd like to hear your perspective, especially because I feel like the movie tipped me even further in Cathy's favor, seeing more of her at Jamie's events along with feeling neglected and misunderstood and worse off?
I would like to point out before I write all of this, because there’s going to be a lot, that I don’t entirely blame Cathy. Jamie also did horrible things. I just think it’s very easy to see Jamie’s faults. So, now that my discretion has been put up, shall we?
In my opinion, I think the movie really did make Jamie out to be the enemy. For example, every stage production I’ve seen has never had more than one girl with him in bed at the end, and viewing him as a serial cheater in the movie really makes it seem much worse. I also personally think they pushed A Miracle Would Happen a lot farther than it needed to go, especially with the alcohol. I think that Jamie has always been a very big story teller, he’s got a very creative mind so sometimes, as writers do, he exaggerates things. But the movie does things that the stage production never does: shows him eyeing SEVERAL girls at the bar, going to strip clubs with his friends, and imagining other girls in their underwear. We would never see these things in the stage production, and we usually laugh a lot during this song, just like we do during A Summer in Ohio. I also don’t personally agree with JerJor’s choices in If I Didn’t Believe in You to get as angry as he did, because once again, it makes Jamie seem very condescending. Usually when I listen to that song, I can barely hear it over my heart breaking for how much Jamie really loves Cathy.
Now, anyways, on to Cathy. Or rather, comparing Jamie and Cathy.
Careers “Here’s a headshot guy and a new Backstage, where you’re right for something on every page.” -Jamie “Isn’t he wonderful, just 28? The saviour of writing.” -Cathy (sarcastically) “I am so proud of you, baby, you’re doing what you never got to do before” -Jamie “Jamie needs his space to write since I’m obviously such a horrible, annoying distraction to him.” -Cathy “If I didn’t believe in you, and all of the ten thousand women you are.” -Jamie
Jamie was always very supportive of Cathy in her career, or rather, her lack of it. Even when things weren’t going well, Jamie wanted nothing but to see her succeed in what she loved doing. Cathy, on the other hand, resented Jamie’s success. And I think Jamie’s line in Moving Too Fast, “Some people can’t get success with their art, some people never feel love in their heart, some people can’t tell the two things apart, but I keep rollin’ on” really portrays Cathy in that moment. I know you’ve all seen the gifsets of him singing this line and how it pertains to Cathy. Jamie found success in his art, and Cathy didn’t. Jamie very much loved Cathy, although I do think that Cathy very much loved Jamie too. The difference was, though, that Cathy couldn’t tell those things apart in him. She thought all he loved was his work, and not her. “I’m a part of that, aren’t I?” And her resentment of his success was a huge fault.
Contradictory “I will not be the girl who gets asked how it feels to be trotting along at the genius’ heels” (Climbing Uphill) / “I tend to follow in his stride, instead of side by side, I take his cue.” (A Part of That) “I want you, and you, and nothing but you.” (I Can Do Better Than That) / “You can’t spend a single day that’s not about you, and you, and nothing but you.” (See I’m Smiling)
We all know Cathy was very contradictory. We’ve seen gifset after gifset of her saying one thing at the start of the show, and something very different at the end. I think it was hard for her to know what she wanted, because she swore to wanting something only to hate it afterwards. Although I didn’t quote it, the one that made me personally very upset, is in See I’m Smiling, she has a very unsuspecting personality. She starts off saying that she’s happy that Jamie could come and they could work on their relationship. But, once Jamie says he can’t stay, she gets upset with him. Jamie attempts to comfort her, but she pushes him away, and then at the end sings “And see I’m crying, and not do anything at all.” because I don’t know about you guys, but if a girl is pushing me away when I try to physically comfort her, I will not continue to do so. I think it was unfair of Cathy to be upset that Jamie wasn’t doing anything when she had already shown signs of not being wanted to be comforted. Now, I know a lot of you point out that it was awful of Jamie to leave her on her birthday, but this is one thing that I will fully support Jamie on. I don’t think he wanted to abandon her on her birthday. No one wants to leave their s/o alone on their birthday, that’s just a shitty thing for both of you. Plus, as a pilot’s kid, I can tell you that sometimes flying can be tricky, and if Jamie couldn’t make it back to New York the next day, what else was he supposed to do? If he had missed that party, I’m sure it would have looked pretty bad on him.
Self-Awareness/Selfishness “Jamie is probably feeling just fine, and I’m still hurting.” -Cathy “I’m not the only one who’s hurting here.” -Jamie “Once the foundation’s cracked.” -Cathy “You never saw how far the crack had opened.” -Jamie “Maybe I’d see how you could be so certain that we had no chance at all.” -Cathy “It’s not about another shrink, it’s not about another compromise” / “Some people analyze every detail, some people stall when they can’t see the trail, some people freeze out of fear that they’ll fail, but I keep rollin’ on” / “So we could fight, or I could wait, or I could go” / “You never saw I’d run out of rope.” -Jamie (Just all of Still Hurting) -Cathy “I made a promise and I took a vow. We wrote a story and I changed the ending, Cathy just look at me now.” -Jamie
I basically made these quotes in two. I gave Jamie a lot on the third one for a reason, but I’ll get to that as I go through these. First one I think is important. Jamie knew that this was going to hurt both of them, he was more than aware that this divorce would shatter Cathy’s heart. And of course, he was also breaking his own heart as he did it. I always say that I believe Cathy was very selfish, and I think that this is a prime example of it, in that she couldn’t see past her own hurt and pain to think for a moment that Jamie once loved her for five entire years, and that getting a divorce wouldn’t kill him. Alright, second one. I think this one just speaks for itself, that maybe Cathy wasn’t quite aware of just how broken everything was. She thought everything was going fine, that the foundation had just been cracked, but Jamie points out that the crack was open pretty far. Of course, they could be talking about different times, but remembering that Still Hurting and I Could Never Rescue You happen within 24 hours of each other, I think it’s important that these are the distinctions that are made. The third one, Cathy constantly believed that things could be fixed. She was a very hopeful girl when it came to the relationship, thinking that things could be fixed, but I gave Jamie all these quotes on this last one for a reason. The first quote states that it’s not like they’d never tried to fix things, they’d tried compromising and seeing shrinks, but as the last one says, Jamie just ran out of rope, and could no longer keep trying. The middle two sort of go hand in hand, although one might feel a little out of context seeing as it’s from Moving Too Fast, I think it’s important. Jamie couldn’t stick in a rut. He hated being caught standing still, and that’s probably how he felt at the end of the relationship. They could keep fighting and keep compromising and seeing more shrinks, but to him, they were standing still and running in circles, and he needed to move on in his life. In the end, I do think it was very mature of Jamie to leave Cathy, although I fully would agree in saying that it was awful of him to have to wait until AFTER he cheated on her to divorce her, I think it was smart of him to do so. Cathy would have never done that, because she kept wanting to try to fix something that never should have happened in the first place, to quote Jason Robert Brown here. Finally, with our last two, I think Cathy was very selfish. During all of Still Hurting, the entirety of the song is made up of “Jamie is ______”, constantly putting the focus on him and blaming him. He’s decided it’s time to move on, he thinks it was Cathy’s fault, when in reality, looking at the second quote, we might think different. Jamie also sings, “Facts are facts.” When he’s cheated on her, and he knows what he’s done is wrong, and he can tell that he’s done something awful by doing this. He made a vow to Cathy to always love her, and he changed it, and he lied.
I’m happy to write out other things, I guess. I will very much admit that it wasn’t all Cathy’s fault. Jamie was also a very faulted person. They were both faulted people who should have never been together. They ruined each other’s lives.
this is very random, but seeing how people liked my latest jongdae gifset made me so happy and encouraged me to keep making gifs in the future even if my skills are rusty and probably not the best. 400+ notes might be nothing to some people, but it means a lot to me since i just came back to tumblr. so thank you! ^^
I just want to wish an amazing, extremely talented woman a very HAPPY BIRTHDAAAAAAAY!!!!! I truly thank God for your presence in my life. She’s really everything, y’all. She’s always encouraging and supportive and always there for me to talk to….and she puts up with my ridiculously long wait times after she’s made gifset requests. lol. (I’m so sorry). I love you, girl! I hope your day was everything you wanted and then some. xoxo
A compilation of cute Rhink gifs I made in the past!
This goes to all my fellow shippers and very especially to the ones who just joined this amazing fandom. Know that you’ll have a great time shipping these two over here (romantically or as the cute besties they are) and that there’s never-ending material for you to feast your eyes on! Enough to get you dizzy whenever you make the bold choice of creating a compilation gifset and realize there’s just too much and end up having to settle for just a few!!
For this word I decided to do a tribute gifset to the season 3 finalle, aka Captain Swan the movie.
I’m sure that for most of us this is the favorite episode(s) on the show. I still can’t believe how lucky we are to get a double episode built like a movie, in which the protagonists are our babies. It was amazing in so many ways, funny, adventures, sad, comforting, emotional, and with a very very happy ending for us. I think the fact that this is a couple that we’ve seen for such a long time before and knew the complexity behind them made it even more than seeing a regular movie. It was definitely the peak event for something that was built slowly for the entire season. I’ll forever be grateful for the writers for choosing our ship for this amazing story line.
Send me a word and I’ll make you a CS gifset inspired by it.
There were a few of these tiny moments in the episode, that made me really happy. Not only because Cas was very present in the episode even though not physically. I loved all these scenes of Sam talking to Cas on the phone. I just really really like that they are bonding and together focus all their attention on Dean to help him. Overall I am just really enamored by how Sam and Cas are growing closer through their shared worry about Dean.
The people you’re writing this to in the comments are actual people, the youtubers you’re trying to shit all over are actual people with feelings.
First of all, I really loved this vlog, and thank you for telling us everything about your decision! I’m really happy it’s all working out for you, and that you have more free time now! ^^ I did notice the difference in editing, but it’s not a bad thing. Most of the little edits lately fit really well with the videos. Kudos to Robin!
You asked us to tell you how we found your channel and what we like about it, so here’s my answer: I subscribed around the end of November last year. What made me subscribe to your channel was the fact that I could see how humble and genuine you are, how much you care about your community, stuff like this gifset I just made, how much fun you had playing games (watching people having fun is… well, fun) and how much you appreciate their visuals. I’m a very visual person, and I gush over visuals as much as you do. Most of the time, I’m right there with you, like “I know right?!”. And of course, you always manage to make me laugh and smile, and your
videos just make me really happy.
I agree with you on a lot of the things you say in your gaming videos, vlogs, RYC, and sometimes the things you say are really refreshing to hear in the sea of nonsense on the internet.
I really appreciate people who do all they can to be nice and
understanding and who try their best to make the world a better place,
and you definitely do that, in my opinion. Because it’s so easy to just
throw a mean comment, but it’s a lot harder to try and understand and be
nice. I did subscribe mostly for you and your personality, and for the
feel of being there and playing games with a friend. It feels weird
saying it like that, but you always say that you hope that’s how we
feel, and well… it’s true for me.
