Professor McGonagall sat down behind her desk, frowning at Harry. Then she said: ‘Have a biscuit, Potter.’ 'Have – what?’ 'Have a biscuit,’ she repeated impatiently, indicating a tartan tin lying on top of one of the piles of papers on her desk. 'And sit down.'” (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix)
McGonagall was the first one who strongly believed Harry Potter would become an Auror, so here she is in my series of sketches :)
- The side that loves to talk about canon, debate theories, debate character development, defend my favorite characters as they were in canon, talk about canon relationships
- Then there’s the side that says CANON?????!?? NO, FUCK CANON!!!!!! THESE TWO CHARACTERS ObViOuSlY LOVE EACH OTER DESPITE ONLY HAVING ONE SCENE IN THE ENTIRE SAGA JUST LOOK AT HOW HE SAID HELLO ARE YOU BLIND?!!! IT’S TRU LUV FITE ME M8 I’LL FUCK UR SHIT UP!!!
First impression: Who is this mysterious murderous stranger???? He better not hurt my kids >:///// Impression now:
Favorite moment: almost every moment from the Halloween Special is Iconic, but the one scene that specifically sticks out to me is when someone was like “wow that Harper sure is creepy, just showing up out of nowhere” and Zalvetta, upon showing up out of nowhere, goes “I know, right?” also zalvetta getting jealous over not being able to hold owlgor Idea for a story: Zalvetta goes 2 therapy: an interactive saga Unpopular opinion: I know a lot of people are either “aw Zalvy is a sweet innocent baby” or “i hate that murder brat with all of my hate”, but I’m somewhere in the middle???? Like, I really love the concept of his character (what if you took Ashe and made her wrong) and honestly I’m love all of him in general. But I still get why people don’t like him, bc he’s done a lot of stuff wrong. but he’s also like 2 years old and I want him to grow and recover and become a good boy (and doing assassin work for people iSNT HOW YOU DO THAT ZALVETTA YOU DUMB M) Favorite relationship: every interaction between Zalvetta and Gregor is………………….very good. either platonic or romantic i love them sm Favorite headcanon: Trans Zalvetta Fuels Me
The movie is really fun, I enjoyed it a lot, but not nearly as good as DOFP.
I always enjoy the X-Men
(except for Last Stand, that one doesn’t count as an X-Men movie), but I always walk out feeling like they didn’t quite get there you know? I always feel like the most important parts happened off screen.
But anyway, I never expect too much, so it’s always a fun ride no matter what happens, so I’m gonna stick to what I liked.
There are no words for the Quicksilver scene, it was inexplicably amazing! They topped the last one. I didn’t think it was possible, but they did!
Jean was another highlight, although her introduction wasn’t as well handled as I’d like, but she shines later on so it makes up for it somewhat. I always feel like the character introductions are never so great. We got Jean, Scott and Storm being introduced in this one, and all 3 lacked the impact that these characters finally showing up should have, in my opinion.
But anyway, back to Jean. Oh man, when Charles starts telling her to let it all go, no fear, it gave me chills! We got a small glimpse of the Phoenix and it was already awesome, if this doesn’t lead into the Phoenix saga it’s going to be the greatest waste ever.
Jean with Charles was particularly amazing. Their dynamic has always been incredible in all the movies and one of my absolute favorites. They’ve always had this unique connection and trust in each other that I absolutely love! To see the beginning of that was truly amazing!
Jean and Logan guys! My shipper heart!! Their scene was amazing!!! You could feel the connection and the tension immediately! I thought it was gonna be weird given that she’s still a teenager, but it wasn’t at all! They handled it perfectly and beautifuly. It was just truly special!
Charles guys, CHARLES!!! My love, my life, my reason for being! So proud of my baby happily running his school, shaping young minds, making plans for the future, wanting to include as many people as possible! It was so freaking good to see Charles being the person he was always meant to be, being the beacon of light and hope that Logan told him he would be. After everything that happened in the last one, to see him back on track and so strong and whole, he’s so freaking strong in this movie guys! UGH! Perfection! He’s the best part of the movie as usual.
And everyone’s ultimate motivation in this movie is Charles, even the villain’s, I freaking loved that, it was amazing!
There wasn’t as much Cherik as I’d like, but we got this one scene that completely makes up for it, I was not expecting it at all!
And a little side note, JFC James McAvoy looks so good in this movie that it’s actually distracting, it was like looking into the sun. Seriously, there are no words!
“A broad slab of ice, smooth as glass, had formed on the other side of the river, and Thrain and his men were standing in the middle of it. Skarphedin took off into the air and leaped across the river from one ice ledge to the other and made a steady landing and shot into a glide. The ice slab was very smooth, and Skarphedin went along as fast as a bird in flight.
Thrain was about to put on his helmet, but Skarphedin came at him first and swung his axe at him and hit him on the head and split it down to the jaw, so that the molars fell out on the ice. This happened in such rapid sequence that no one could land a blow on Skarphedin; he went gliding away at a furious speed. Tjorvi threw a shield in his way, but he hopped over it and kept his balance and glided to the end of the ice slab.” –Njal’s Saga, Chapter 92
This scene is one of my favorite examples of how the sagas can be exciting and fun (if brutal as well), not just academically interesting. I found the illustration online but I don’t know who the artist is.
Funny fact is I was about 5/6 years old, I remember I wasn’t a big fan of Vegeta (he became one of my favorites after a while) but in this scene I saw how Bulma could handle him without ANY fear and I was like “HEH ASSHOLE TAKE THAT, YOU GO GIRL” :’D
I LOVED BULMA back then, and I indirectly started shipping them because of this fact, Bulma had no fear coping with him, and Vegeta was reeeeaaaallllly uncomfortable with her, so yeah I remember thinking those two were adorable. Then I remember crying all of my tears during the buu saga, and I grew up loving this family (since Trunks was definitely my favorite when I was a kid, along with Goten). I didn’t really know what shipping was but I guess I was shipping them without knowing what it was (does this even make sense?)
An hilarious thought is that, since I am italian I watched this particular scene in my language and in this moment, when Bulma should say something like “hey homeboy”, the italian version handles the dub kind of like : “HEY HOTTIE WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITHOUT A HOME?” and when I rewatched the whole series this year I was cracking up like no tomorrow :’D
Do you know how many times Jen talks about how Liam looks during these interviews? The ones I remember are when Josh says Jen worked out instead of having lunch and she replies that she'll never get Liam's big arms, the "I like your face" one, the "you sexy boy" one, the "Liam Hemsworth takes his shirt off and I stop talking...what about this one?" one, the one where she hoots about his shirtless whipping scene. Do you know of any more?
I’m not sure, I’ve been trying to remember as well. There’s a few others.
Hey Rob welcome back to Portland, if I had to be wrong I’m just thankful for you allowing me all the Twilight feels. I posted this gif in honor of your favorite scene from the saga!
But I will never regret not wasting my time combing through IG accounts mining for information on your upcoming whereabouts.
One more thing though. Thanks for making sure to get pap’d when leaving LA just to prove to the haters where you chose to spend your days off. You could have gone anywhere in the world according to them…but between you and me…we know LA or wherever your girls happen to be is home.
Have fun in Portland…hope you have some time to do some reminiscing. Maybe a certain dark-rooted blond will come for a visit while your there. Guess that depends on how long this leg of the shoot will last.
