Sansa Stark and Jon Snow, Jenny’s Song
Is there an off-screen romance brewing for two of the hottest young actors in Westeros? Time will tell, but sources say yes! The pair have been reportedly linked together since filming wrapped on Jenny’s Song.
“Their on-screen chemistry was noticeable from day one,” a source close to the couple tells us. “When you’re with someone for months on end, pretending to fall in love… well, sometimes life imitates art.”
Early buzz is calling Jon Snow’s performance as Erik a powerful homage to his late father, Rhaegar Targaryen. Some critics have lauded Sansa’s Jenny as a definite contender for lead actress this awards season.
With reviews like that, how could these two go wrong? Come on, Jonsa, we’re rooting for you!
Jenny’s Song is coming to theaters later this year.
Primeiramente já queria começar te dando um enorme e caloroso parabéns, eu realmente espero do fundo do meu coração que hoje esteja sendo um dia especial pra você e que esse dia se repita por várias e várias vezes e que não falte uma coisa que é essencial na sua vida, porque tipo assim é o que faz os seus dias serem melhores: eu, claro, pode confessar que eu deixo. Eu queria te dizer que você pode confiar em mim em qualquer situação, não importa qual seja o segredo ou a situação, eu estarei aqui pra você e não tô falando isso só como clichê ou como muitas pessoas falam por ai, eu realmente estarei aqui. Vamos ser realistas é claro que acontecerá brigas e discussões entre nós que em algum momento abalará a nossa amizade só que com fé no Pai a gente vai por tudo no lugar e nada ficará causando uma má relação entre nós. Você é uma das pessoas mais importantes que existe no mundo pra mim, pelo menos no meu mundo. Você tem os seus defeitos como qualquer outro ser humano mas as suas qualidades são tantas que superam os defeitos e as nossas diferenças, diferenças essas que fizeram com que de alguma forma nos aproximarmos e olha onde estamos hoje. Eu vou ser bem fofa agora e te confessar algumas coisas do tipo… Adoro o seu abraço é um dos lugares que fazem com que eu me sinta segura e o seu cheiro faz com que eu me sinta em casa, uma casa bem organizada e arrumada por sinal. A sua voz, a sua voz por telefone deveria se tornar música e tocar todas as manhãs no rádio mas acho que essa ideia não é tão legal pois eu ficaria com ciúmes, teriam outras menininhas que se viciariam na sua voz então esquece essa ideia. As suas mãos, me deixam impressionada pela forma que se encaixam tão bem nas minhas. O seu humor, é sempre ele que faz com que o meu dia se torne um pouco melhor mesmo quando tenho prova de matemática. O seu coração e a pessoa que você é, é impressionante como você pode ter um coração tão bom e ser uma pessoa tão maravilhosa mesmo quando tudo parece que está contra. O seu coração é grande demais, não sei como cabe ai dentro. Eu queria terminar dizendo que eu amo você muito mais do que você possa imaginar e cada dia que passa te amo um pouco mais. Parabéns e mais uma vez parabéns pra você meu anjo ou (NOME E O SEGUNDO NOME) como costumam chamar.

There are few things as soul-crushing in the writing process (at least to me) than getting a bunch of characters in a room with the intention of something happening, then the characters proceed to stand around and stare at each other.
Or worse, look at you like this.
My characters didn’t know why they were there. I didn’t know why they were there either. I had no clue what they were supposed to be doing, so I’d start throwing random instructions at them: “Fight, characters! You guys should fight now! Maybe fighting will make this event have a purpose!” Which inevitably resulted in characters going through the motions of battle for no apparent reason, like they had all lost their minds.
What was the problem? I didn’t know how to write a scene. I didn’t know what a scene was. I had a vague definition that it was something about changing scenery, or just “something happening”.
It’s not. And once I learned what a scene was, my characters got to stop pummeling each other, while wishing they could pummel me.
So what is a scene?
The definition of a scene is kind of like the definition of a story. Story is change, a massive change in the life of your main character. A scene is change too, but much smaller, and part of that huge story change. You couldn’t have the BIG change without these tiny changes. Thus, a scene is not switching scenery. It’s not flipping to a new Character’s POV. It’s one segment of change, which triggers the next change, which triggers the next, which gradually build into sequences, which build into Acts, which build into story.
So what goes into a scene? How does it work?
1. Alternating Charges
If a scene opens positive, it will turn negative by the end. If it opens negative, it will end positive. Simple.
2. Character Goals
Everybody in a scene wants something. If they don’t want anything, they shouldn’t be in the scene. And these characters, with their often opposing goals, are going to employ different tactics on each other to get what they want. Which creates …
3. Escalating Conflict
Conflict is created when one character wants one thing and another wants something else, right? So the characters in the scene are each pushing for something different, each new tactic increasing in determination. And what are these actions called?
The beats of a scene are exchanges of action and reaction. One character does something, another character reacts. All exchanges (beats) are pushing the scene onward, building tension and conflict, until finally …
5. Turns & Revelations
The scene turns. The positive has changed to negative. Something has been discovered. The story has spun in a new direction.
6. Connection to Story Objective
Every scene must be connected to the BIG goal of the story, the main character is taking small actions to reach that big goal. If it isn’t obviously connected to this big plot, it won’t make sense. Your reader won’t know why the heck they’re reading the scene. Which brings us to …
7. Logic & Necessity
Every scene must be necessary. It must be able to be linked with the previous scene. “Because that happened in the previous scene, THIS must happen in this scene.”
So! To see how that all works, let’s break down a scene from Tangled. (Because I used it in the last post to map out how a premise works, and my little writer heart can’t resist symmetry.)
Rapunzel’s Goal: Rise up against her mother – finally.
Gothel’s Goal: Regain control.
Escalating Conflict: They’re fighting over who controls Rapunzel, and this battle causes them to go from “mother and daughter” to “enemies”. The conflict builds nicely in this scene, causing the story turn.
Connection to Story Objective: Throughout the movie, the big thing Rapunzel wants is freedom, she wants her life to begin, she wants to have a new dream. This is the moment she figures out how to do that; it’s not escaping the tower, it’s escaping Gothel’s control over her.
So! Here’s the scene.
“Rapunzel? Rapunzel, what’s going on up there?”
Ignores her. Still processing the tremendous implications of this revelation.
“Are you alright?"
"I’m the lost princess.” (Dumbfounded. Almost whispering it to herself.)
“Oh, please speak up Rapunzel! You know how I hate the mumbling.” (Bullying.)
“I am the lost princess! Aren’t I?” (Fighting back. She will not be bullied anymore.)
Gothel stares, stunned. She’s rendered temporarily speechless, because her secret’s been revealed finally, and her victim is actually fighting against her.
“Did I mumble, Mother? Or should I even call you that?” (Accusing. Drawing herself up taller. Looking down on Gothel and glaring. She’s seeing her clearly for the first time in her life.)
After a pause, thinking up a tactic. “Oh, Rapunzel, do you even hear yourself? How could you ask such a ridiculous question?” (Laughs. Ridicules. Attempts to make her feel childish, dumb, worthy of being mocked. Tactics which have always worked. She even begins to hug her.)
Rapunzel pushes her. “It was you! It was all you!” (Still accusing and angry, but pain is beginning to show. It’s almost like she’s giving her a chance to explain herself.)
“Everything I did was to protect you.” (And Gothel doesn’t say anything redeeming. She’s holier than thou, regal, bestowing kindness on an ungrateful, stupid child. Trying to control through guilt.)
Rapunzel rams her out of the way.
“Rapunzel!” (Shouting. Now trying anger.)
“I’ve spent my entire life hiding from people who would use me for my power …” (Leaves her.)
"Rapunzel!” (Still trying the anger angle.)
“But I should have been hiding from you.” (Throwing the truth at her.)
“Where will you go? He won’t be there for you.” (She’s tried everything else. It’s time to attack her heart.)
“What did you do to him?” (Fear)
“That criminal is to be hanged for his crimes.” (She’s keeping up the disapproving mother act, but striking her right where it will hurt her most.)
“No.” (She’s stopped. Shrinking in on herself. Staring, horrified. And Gothel thinks she’s won.)
“Now, now. It’s alright. Listen to me. All of this is as it should be.” She goes to pat Rapunzel’s head, a gesture symbolic of her superiority, her physical, mental, and emotional control over her victim.
Rapunzel grabs Gothel’s wrist. “No! You were wrong about the world. And you were wrong about me! And I will never let you use my hair again!"
Gothel wrenches free, stumbling backwards in shock and anger, breaking the mirror in the process.
"You want me to be the bad guy? Fine. Now I’m the bad guy.” (Well, now emotional control is over. It’s time to start stabbing Rapunzel’s boyfriend.)
This action has no reaction, interestingly. It leaves us hanging, a cliffhanger created with only beats.
Closing Charge: Negative. She’s now a full-fledged villain, the motherly persona shed, and she’s determined to get what she wants whatever the cost.
Turn: It changed from positive to negative, and now we’ve got a Flynn-stabbing witch to deal with.
Revelation: She’s always been evil. She has always been the bad guy. The motherly act was just that, an act.
Logic & Necessity: This scene fits with the previous scene, and the one that follows.
Though I’ve seen these concepts in many books, the place I first learned about it (and the best resource for scene design in my opinion) is the book Story by Robert McKee. It’s helped me countless times, is one of my favorite books on storytelling, and I highly recommend it if you write anything.
I realize that these definitions were a little vague, so I’ll be explaining things more thoroughly in subsequent posts.
So we get Fantastic Beasts. A movie that, I believe, explores the horrible damage abuse does, the importance of preserving wildlife and respecting animals, the damage that segregation of any kind does, a great look into the intolerance of mental health problems, contains an allegory for police brutality, not to mention the idea of government corruption… and what does tumblr do?
It complains. As always.
1) why have they cast and “abuser”
2) god this movie is so white
3) why does there have to be a romance between Newt and Tina, he’s my precious, gay, autistic baby
4) JKR doesn’t mention slavery in this, it’s so white focused
5) OMG they killed Credence that’s so ableist.
It’s almost as if. Nothing. Pleases. You. People.
1) the abuse cases were dropped and there was also accustoms aimed at Heard but you’ll ignore those, I’m sure.
2) the head of MACUSA is a black woman, which I thought was awesome.
3) They are married in canon. That’s why she’s even in the movies. Newt isn’t any of the things you headcanon him to be. He avoids eye contact because he spends all his time around animals which, news flash, hate eye contact.
4) It’s. a. Movie. About. Magic. And. Fluffy. Animals.
5) He’s signed on to the next 4 films and has been quoted as one of the main characters going forward. If you actually researched or paid attention to the film you’d have noticed a bit of the obscurus float away at the end.
God damn it people. Just be happy with something for once.
Isn’t it just amazing
what the people we’re in love with
can do to us?
That the simplest act of affection,
the tiniest brush of their hands against our skin
is able to leave us behind panting
and lost for words
while we wouldn’t even realize if it wasn’t them?
Don’t you think that it is nearly unbelievable
how another person can affect us
as if they were addictive?
Heteronormativity, cisnormativity and allonormativity can be just as hurtful as lgbt+-phobia.
Your parents keep asking “Do you like any boys in your school?” but you’re into girls? I see your pain. I believe you when you say it hurts.
Your best friend asked who you have a crush on and when you said you don’t get crushes, she laughed and said “Everyone does!”? I see your pain. I believe you when you say it hurts.
Your SexEd teacher talks about what happens “when a girl gets her first period” and you’re a boy who just got his first period? I see your pain. I believe you when you say it hurts.
“Other people have it worse” is a deeply insensitive remark. Please don’t let those people silence you. Turning (emotional) pain into a competition is unhealthy for everyone involved. You deserve better than that.
With all my love,
Your Tumblr Mom
PS: “Wait, what does those “normativity” words mean?” They describe the (silent) assumption that everyone is hetero/cis/feels romantic and sexual attraction or that being/feeling those things is “normal”.
What if your life was a TV show. And you had a whole fandom. What if people shipped you with your friends or your crushes. There was merch of things you say and head cannons. People loved your little quirks and ticks. “Omg or like when they bite their lip when they’re nervous” “what about the way they smile when *insert name* talks to them? They are so in love.” Imagine Tumblr accounts dedicated to you, people loved the way you said things or did things. That would be awesome
