this is why I love Brian so much

I listened to the audio of the EWP’s production of N2N and I love how much having an all Asian cast adds so many little nuances to the story without having to actually change anything, particularly with:

  • the stigma regarding mental illness in a lot of Asian cultures and how much more painful that makes Diana’s story.
    • This also adds a whole new layer to the fact that Dan tries to ignore his depression for so many years, in favour of helping Diana.
  • the whole “all Asians are smart” stereotype in relation to Natalie’s stress over her grades and academic future. It sheds a whole new light on to why she would stress about Yale as much as she does, especially with the fact that a lot of Asian households do value academic success very highly.
  • the neglect towards Natalie and the focus on Gabe in relation to the elephant in the room about how a lot of Asian cultures still value sons over daughters. This adds an entirely new layer to Natalie’s pain regarding being ignored by her mother and so many lines in Superboy and the Invisible Girl
    • “He’s a hero, a lover, a prince/She’s not there”
    • “He’s the one you wish would appear/He’s your hero, forever your son”
    • “I love you as much as I can

This show works so wonderfully with an all Asian cast and manages to address so many harmful stereotypes/sheds light on a lot of issues within Asian communities without having to change ANY aspect of the show and just… this is why diversity is important. A diverse cast can add a whole new interpretation to a show that might have never otherwise addressed it because it wouldn’t have originally been written with that kind of narrative in mind. I doubt Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey were attempting to make statements regarding the stigma of mental illness, pressure of academic success, and gender inequality in Asian cultures when they first wrote Feeling Electric, but thats what an all Asian cast contributes to the show. Diverse casting can help a show as much as it can help the actors.

You gnawed at your lip, eyes nervously watching a late-night rerun of the Big Bang Theory. Your eyelids drooped from a desire to rest, but you just took a sip from your fourth cup of coffee, pressing forward into the night. Your eyes flickered to the clock, it read 2:48 a.m. You sighed, bouncing your knee. Dom and the team had a late-night race they were going to- a race against a dangerous criminal, to be exact. You volunteered to stay behind and watch Brian and Mia’s children, along with Dom’s son Brian. 

 Your nervousness wasn’t replaced with rage until you heard the familiar purr of Dom’s Charger. You clicked the TV off, gripping the handle of your mug so tightly that your knuckles turned a shade of white. You made your way towards the entryway, standing about seven feet from the door. A hand was poised on your cocked hip, your tired eyes glaring at the door and it was as if the door was going to burst into flames. The keys jingled and the door was opened by Brian, who had a smile on his face but it quickly disappeared when he saw the anger in your eyes. “Hey, Y/N.” he nervously said, stepping aside and letting Mia and Dominic enter. 

 "Your kids are asleep upstairs, I didn’t feed them much sugar. They were well-behaved. I loved watching them, and I hope you enjoyed your night out.“ You said, your eyes locked onto Dom. Your voice held unintentional hostility but the slightest hint of genuineness was detectable. Your head turned to Mia and Brian, smiling a small smile. "Seriously. I hope you guys had fun, sorry for the rudeness.” You turned back to Dom. “Could you guys excuse us for a minute?” Your hostility and anger was back. Mia and Brian departed up the stairs, claiming to be tired and go to bed. It was a good thing they did, because the second the door closed, your eyes pierced Dominic Toretto with frustration. "What the hell were you thinking?“ you quietly exclaimed, trying not to wake up the sleeping kids or prevent Mia and Brian from sleeping. 

 "It was just a night out racing, just like old times. Nothing serious.” Dominic said calmly, his low voice soothing you yet making you all the more upset. 

 "I’m not an idiot, Dominic.“ You spat, pulling out the full name card. "You haven’t moved from that position since you walked in, you haven’t shifted your weight. You’re covering a certain spot on your torso. Plus, Mia texted me and said you got sliced." 

 "Babe, it’s nothing a little rubbing alcohol and a good night’s sleep can’t fix.” Dom chuckled, stepping towards you with a wince. 

 "Sit on the couch. Take your shirt off.“ You ordered, walking away before going to find the rubbing alcohol, gauze, and a few cotton balls. You returned to the living room, a look of annoyance on your face. You refused to let yourself make eye contact with Dom, you knew you’d melt. 

“I’m sorry.” Dom muttered, and you felt the urge to look at him, but you resisted.

“Why are you apologizing, Dominic? What happened wasn’t your fault. You didn’t know this guy was gonna try and kill you.” you said softly, applying the rubbing alcohol-drenched cotton ball to the open wound on Dom’s stomach. 

You two just sat there in silence for a bit, just the sound of rubbing alcohol swishing back and forth in the bottle whenever you dumped more onto a cotton ball. You bit your lip in concentration, and also deep in thought.

What if I had lost Dom? What if this guy.. what if he got the jugular? What if he lost a lot of blood? What if Dom had died?  

The last sentence brought a wave of hot, salty tears to your eyes, and you fought with everything you had not to cry. You bit your lip harder, you were not going to cry. Not right now. 

But, Dominic Toretto isn’t stupid, either. 

“What’s wrong?” he asked you, and you shook your head, attempting to rid the tears from your eyes. You kept your eyes trained on the wound you were currently bandaging. 

“Nothing.” the word fell from your lips and almost crushed Dom’s heart.

“Y/N, you can tell me anything. You know that, right? What’s wrong?” he asked.

The dam holding your tears back was broken at his words. A soft sob escaped your lips, and you brought the back of your hand up to your mouth, attempting to silence yourself. Hot, salty tears rolled down your now red cheeks. You sobbed into the back of your hand, your body shook from the intensity of your tears.

Dom sank next to you on the ground, wrapping his arms around you and pulling you into his chest. Your body fell into his, and you couldn’t help but cry harder. “Hey,” he whispered, “I’m here. Y/N, I’m here.”

The words were reassuring, but you still cried. And you cried for about fifteen minutes more, quite unsure if the tears would stop until they did. Dom grabbed a Kleenex box off of the coffee table, placing it in front of you. You grabbed the tissues and wiped your face. 

“Now, can you tell me what’s wrong?” Dom asked, and you pulled out of his grasp to look into his eyes. You sat with your legs criss-crossed, and sighed. A shaky hand was raked through your y/h/c hair. 

“I just… I just started thinking. What if this wound was a lot deeper. What if he went for your jugular. What if he took you from me, Dom? Do you understand why I always wait up, even when the kids are put to bed hours before? Do you understand why I get so mad?” you started. His eyes softened as they met yours.

“It’s because you care.” 

“I love you so much, Dominic Toretto. And, if you die, I will go out of my damn mind. I can’t lose you, not yet. I’m not ready for that, neither are Brian and Mia. Little Brian needs his dad.” A small smile crossed Dom’s lips when you mention the tiny Toretto.

“I love you, too, Y/N Y/L/N.” Dom said, leaning in to capture your lips in a kiss. 

When you pulled away, you gave him a hug. “And, hey, next time, take me along please. We’ll have Rome or someone watch the kids.” 

Dom gave you a funny look. “You want somebody to watch my son, our nieces and nephews… and you chose Roman Pierce?” 

You laughed. “Okay, maybe not Rome. But maybe Hobbs or Deckard?” 

“Maybe. But, I promise. You’ll come with us.”

  • i love day6 so much
  • “OH HOW CAN I SAaaaYy”

ok i know why that kiss from 2x15 fucks us up

i know we always say alex is a softie but she’s really not a soft person. especially not when she’s working. only with maggie or kara, but a specific and new kind of soft with maggie. like yes, she probably cries the most out of anyone on the show, but it’s not associated with weakness, it’s associated with holding it in for too long.

so this time she was working (rogue, but still working), but her co-agent happened to be maggie, and we know that going on missions amps her up, and being with maggie makes her feel a lot of things, so she was just like ‘I NEED TO KISS HER’ and it was really just………. a very vulnerable thing for alex to do in the middle of a mission

like we notice that alex and maggie dont do pda, but i think it’s on purpose because alex is not a very mushy touchy person, especially not in public.

although just in front of brian the alien isn’t really “public” it was still something different for alex, and i think that’s why we’re all feeling a lot about it.

 look at our baby alex, letting herself feel things. love it. keep it up.

anonymous asked:

Hey Brian!I just wanted to say how much I adore the musical work you do on Star. It really is a true jem of a show that my sisters and I (of huge age gaps) love. I know that this may be really irrelevant but I don’t really have anyone in my life to completely go to this for. So far I have been fired from two jobs in the past few years, and while this kind of seems shallow I don’t see why. I have always been a hard-working person and I always gave 100% to everything I did (1/2)

(cont’d) I have asked my previous employers for feedback, before you recommend that btw. As someone who is now an accomplished person, what do you think is wrong? Do I need more soul searching, better resume, etc. Sorry for bombarding you with this (2/2)

Hi Anon! This is a hard question, because there are lots of questions I have on my end that I feel like would be necessary to give you a reasonably detailed answer (what’s your field? how long have you been working? where in the country do you live? what is the general economic status there? etc etc etc). 

However, I will say that getting fired or passed over for jobs is something that my wife and I (and basically everyone else in the entertainment industry) are VERY familiar with. For every industry success story you hear, that person probably had 100 failures. (Some high-up TV exec once told Jon Hamm to his face that he would never be a TV star. He said that to Jon Hamm’s ABSURDLY HANDSOME FACE.) It’s hard, and it beats down on your self-esteem, and you constantly feel like you are being judged by unknowable criteria for which you have zero control. And I have felt the same way after every other job I’ve had that went south. (I did a lot of other jobs before becoming a composer. I sold shoes for 2 years!)

I have failed a lot, and continue to do so, but I don’t post about it here because it’s not that interesting, and social media allows us to broadcast our successes and bury our failures. Focusing on things you can control, like your resumé, soul-searching, definitely helps, but for me, I only start to get somewhere productive when I look at the problems underneath the problems.

Hypothetical example – let’s say I got fired from someplace and the employer said I wasn’t enthusiastic enough. On the surface, this might seem like a call to raise my general energy level, maybe drink a lot of coffee before coming to work, listen to Jock Jams during my commute to get pumped up, etc. But underneath, maybe it means that I actually HATE what I’m doing, and no amount of 5-Hour Energy could change that. Maybe I should try something else? (Has happened to me.)

Second hypothetical example – let’s say an employer says I don’t “fit in” with the company’s or industry’s atmosphere, etc. On the surface, I could think that means I need to change the way I dress or act or talk. Or, it could mean that I just don’t fit in with the sort of people who worked at that company, and for my next job, I should find someplace that employs people more likeminded. (Has also happened to me. Okay, so these aren’t “hypothetical.”)

Again, not sure where you live or the economic status there, so I apologize if these examples seem out of touch or liberal snowflake-y. But I think they still make a general point.

So yeah, I have no idea why you were let go, and maybe it’s for reasons that are completely beyond our control and you’ve just hit a spat of bad luck, and any advice won’t help at all. It happens. But as you look for your next thing, I would say you should remember that every failure is an opportunity to look at what is going on underneath the surface, and identifying these deeper questions and answering them not only helps us figure out what we are supposed to do for a living, but also helps us become better, more focused, more whole people.

I wish you the best of luck with one of life’s most constant but rewarding struggles.


Shorty (DAY6)


The worst. He thinks you’re the absolute cutest and constantly ruffles your hair/puts his chin on your hair/picks you up etc. Probably makes really bad jokes about you being pocket-sized. Does stupid things like ask a question and when you answer he looks around like, “Babe, where are you speaking from? I don’t see you,” and then he looks down and “Oh there you are! What are you doing way down there?”. He’s impossible when it comes to him taking things from you to tease you, you’ll never get it back. He’s too long. There’s too much of his arms.

Super cute and romantic about it, lowkey doesn’t want you to wear heels or anything. Likes to place you on the counter to kiss you, and probably picks you up when you hug for no reason. Carries you around because he can. If you ask for his help to reach for something he’s like, “Of course! I always help the short and needy,” (please fight him).

Young K (Brian):

Loves it a little too much. Likes to squish you a lot, and probably pulls you onto his lap just because. Tucks you into his side whenever you walk outside, especially if there’s a crowd around. One time he bought you a balloon and tied it to your wrist “just in case you get lost” so he could spot you (so cheeky). Think you’re adorable and makes it super hard for you to kiss him so he can see you get frustrated.

Likes that he can tease you about it and call you a baby. Probably uses a dumb baby voice when he’s talking to you like “Oh, is it hard down there? Do you want me to pick you up to see?” (just laughs when you smack him). Definitely pats your head condescendingly all the time (one time he dared to say “Shh, the adults are talking,” but he hasn’t done it again since). Sometimes he puts cushions on your chairs as a joke but usually gets them thrown back at his face. Overall he finds it pretty cute and always holds your hand in crowds, just in case.

So annoyingly adorable about. Definitely completely swoops over you for hugs and holds you like a teddy bear. Is super careful keeping track of you in crowds, and loves to give you back hugs. Probably puts things on high shelves so you can ask him to get it down, and insists to put you on his shoulders to see (like in concerts). Mostly smiles down at you when you can’t reach for something, but doesn’t say much. Only teases a little, but he’s usually quiet about it because he thinks it’d be weird if he told you he loved your height.

Why do you love Dylan O'brian and when did you like him?

Dylan O’Brien is the most precious puppy pawed unicorn ever. There are so many reasons to love him. He’s funny and charming and humble and cute and good looking and talented and awkward and super elusive. 

I could go on about what an amazing actor he is and how much fun it is to watch him do what he loves. I could also talk about his cinnamon coloured eyes and the little smirk he does and his cute nose and his hands and ears. But seeing that you’re here, most likely enjoying your daily dose of Dylan everyday, you already know what I mean. ;)

I joined the party in 2014, actually around this time of year (it’s already been three years! :O). Amazon Prime bothered me with watching Teen Wolf for free and I resisted for a while because “nah, it’s an MTV show and MTV sucked already for years” but I remembered reading about Hoechlin being part of it and I kinda was curious about the 7th Heavens boy. *shrugs* So I tuned in and I wasn’t impressed to be honest… for like 5 mins… then this boy with the buzzcut hung upside down from a roof and I was like “Yupp, I’m taking this one. Here have my heart.” From there it was more or less a free fall into that rabbit hole. Bing watching Teen Wolf, Internship, High Road and the First Time (Oh god) and then there was Maze Runner… *_* So.. yeah… three years later I’m still here and making heart eyes at him and let me tell you it’s the longest I ever adored an actor… 

Now… that’s a lot of talk… so here have a fav pic of mine:
